    If You Liked Squid Game........

    If You Liked Squid Game........

    Today on the show we talk about the explosive rise of Asian cinema and television. We go all the way back to what feels like ten years ago now, but its actually closer to two years, when "Parasite" one best picture at the Oscar, and question if that never happened would a show like "Squid Game" ever have gotten the green light. With all these massive success' showing up on the streamers, Tyler dusts off his old Asian Cult Cinema book to remind you all that there have been millions and millions of intriguing cinema being made from that part of the country for years. And you should check it out.

    Let the Beards Grow

    Let the Beards Grow

    A brand new month is upon on us. Every November Tyler lets his facial hair grow and grow. His mountain man persona takes over him and he starts drinking a lot of IPA's and Stouts. And worst of all, his face gets itchy. We're taking No Shave November a little seriously here on The Basement this month. We have partnered with a company to fundraise for cancer research all month long. All the while, Tyler will be letting the beard grow and grow.
