David Bowie: Berlin Wall Concert (1987)
This week we finish up our discussion on Alan Rickman and David Bowie! Someone makes the mistake of bringing up Harrison Ford and Mariah goes on a tangent. Marlee shares a Bowie story. Tyler tells a wartime tale. Thanks to The Itchy Creeps for our theme music!
‘Alan was my friend and so this is hard to write because I have just kissed him goodbye.
What I remember most in this moment of painful leave-taking is his humour, intelligence, wisdom and kindness. His capacity to fell you with a look or lift you with a word.
The intransigence which made him the great artist he was – his ineffable and cynical wit, the clarity with which he saw most things, including me, and the fact that he never spared me the view. I learned a lot from him.
He was the finest of actors and directors. I couldn’t wait to see what he was going to do with his face next. I consider myself hugely privileged to have worked with him so many times and to have been directed by him.’
He was the ultimate ally. In life, art and politics. I trusted him absolutely.
He was, above all things, a rare and unique human being and we shall not see his like again.’
What a week. Mariah, Tyler, and Marlee mourn and celebrate two of their lifelong heroes, Alan Rickman and David Bowie. Part one of a two part series!
The second episode of our podcast! This week we talk about the films of director Quentin Tarantino. Mariah just saw The Hateful Eight, Tyler shares Pulp Fiction fan theories, Marlee tries to figure out how many languages Christoph Waltz speaks. Special thanks to The Itchy Creeps for our theme music.
The pilot episode of our show! We talk about One-Punch Man, Doctor Who, and The Force Awakens, even though Mariah’s mic is haunted by an echo. EDITOR’S NOTE: She has exorcised the echo and it will not be present next episode.
