Music Box Massacre IV

I’ll be getting up early tomorrow (10/25) to attend Music Box Massacre IV at noon. 24 hours of back-to-back horror films! This will be the most films I’ve ever seen in one sitting, beating out the first Killapalloza by three movies. Here’s the schedule:

12:00pm The Haunted House
12:30pm Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
01:45pm The Old Dark House
03:15pm Eyes Without A Face
05:00pm May (with director Lucky McKee in person)
07:30pm Midnight Meat Train (with Clive Barker in person)
10:15pm Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (with director Joseph Zito in person)
12:30pm Dead Alive
02:15am Phantom of the Paradise
04:00am Black Sabbath
06:00am Pieces
07:45am Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer
09:30am Exorcist

Unfortunately we aren’t going to be able to cover it on Double Feature because of some weird scheduling stuff. Maybe we’ll record it and save it for this time next year? You’ll be getting your regularly scheduled show (The People vs Larry Flint + Jesus Camp) Thursday at 12:01am.

Should be a great time. Seems like the usual theatre rules will be pretty loose, and it’s the Chicago premiere of Midnight Meat Train! Also free energy drinks. Can you tell I’m excited? If you’re going, be sure to say hi.

Update: The Double Feature Episode went up (Music Box Massacre 4) and there’s a new blog post about Music Box Massacre 5.

New DF Episode: Intro Music Discussion

While this episode includes the usual discussion of two films (and really good ones this week!), we also talked about the opening music you hear every episode.

Listen on iTunes

Included in this show:

A bit about the intro, Michael’s own double feature, and three sentence dream theory. We also cover japanese horror, zombie films (totally unrelated), and strong female leads. I mean, with these two movies, how could you not cover strong female leads? Download the Show: The Descent + Feast

It’s cool to hear this and remember that night. It was a lot of fun.

DOUBLE FEATURE: The Theme

This is an account of my two month perfectionistic drive to write our 45 second intro music.

Download: Double Feature Theme

The show has been out for a few days now (you can get it for free on the Creative Commons license so people can take anything they want from it and use it in their own stuff. As I describe on the site, “content can be copied, distributed, adapted, tastelessly brutalized, and otherwise used without any permission – under the condition that it’s credited appropriately and linked to DoubleFeature.fm. This lone condition can be waived if absolutely necessary.” You can hear the full theme above, on our myspace, or at Last.fm.

RSS Feed for the show!

Double Feature, hosted by Eric Ingrum and Michael Koester, is podcast detailing two films per episode. Riddled with blasphemy and a humble (but vicious) sense of humor, the podcast is an experiment in film watching. Each show both hosts pick a movie they’ve seen a hundred times that the other’s never watched, and then view both movies back to back. Uninterested in actually reviewing the films, they discuss what makes them notable against an abundance of others.

There are currently three shows up. The audio setup still isn’t finalized; the recording quality will get better in the coming weeks (I promise!) The show goes up every Thursday at 2am.

I have a lot I want to talk about regarding the show, so there will be some new stuff up every day or so. Keep coming back here for more info. In the mean time, here’s some thing you can do if you want to help out:

+ Be our friend on MySpace
+ Add us to your top friends
+ Make a bulletin
+ Become a fan on Facebook
+ Post a note on your blog
+ Use Last.fm and listen to our show
+ Add a review to iTunes

Thanks to everyone in advance. We’d love some feedback. Comment. Everywhere. On everything. Looking forward to hearing from all of you!

DOUBLE FEATURE Podcast has a Date!

I don’t get days like this often enough. I come bearing news. Mark your calendars.

July 25th, 2008

You know Double Feature, that podcast I keep saying will go up one day? Well, it’s got a launch date! After months and months of work, we’ve got everything prepared to go online. The podcast, website, and all the rest goes online July 25th, 2008.

Here’s the official description…

Nine more days and you can listen to me embarrass myself on a weekly basis.

OH, I almost forgot. I don’t think anyone actually uses live journal anymore…but you can totally get an RSS feed of the project blog (this thing you’re reading right now) instead. Here’s the URL:

If you have an RSS feed thingy, or you use AwesomeStart, you can totally just pop that in there and get updates that way. Apple’s Mail client in Leopard also uses RSS now, which is cool. Yay.
