Rather than recommending things through the medium of words, this week I am offering up some audio. It’s something I absentmindedly started making for my own enjoyment, but then too much time was poured into it for me to justify it simply as something that would lurk un-played on my iPod for years to come.
So here it is: Film Mishmash: a cack-handedly curated combination of soundtracks and dialogue from films. It’s kind of like a mixtape – cut and pasted with care and love, but still distinctly homemade, and not necessarily in a good way.
I hope you endure it.
Recommendations in brief:
The episode of Mark Maron’s WTF podcast with Sacha Baron-Cohen was really interesting. They talk about how he made his films and the clowning theory that influenced him. Listen here.
