Written by Musashi on . Posted in Moviecast, Podcast

This week we take a look at the (already) lagging sales of the newly-released Playstation Vita, pimp a great new Kickstarter, and review Olivier Assayas’ 1995 indie flick Irma Vep – which may seem off-topic…but features the legendary Maggie Cheung as herself. The verdict: three ups and one big down. Show Notes Playstation Vita sales […]

Yellow Menace Podcast Epsiode 21 – Studio Ghibli’s ‘Bamboo Curtain’, Bad News For the Yakuza, and Pale Flower

Written by Musashi on . Posted in Film, Moviecast, Podcast

Another long, rambly talk this week – but it’s a good kind of ramble where you end up in fun, unexpected places. Clyde brings us a news item regarding Hayao Miyazaki’s hiring practices, Ed wants to talk about legal problems for the Yakuza, and I make everyone watch a pretentious Japanese art film. Pretty sure […]

So, I had the most fucked-up dream last night. There were a lot of crazy elements, but I only remember two: I made out with Lance Henrikson, but he wasn’t Lance Henrikson, he was Frank Black from Millennium (which I watched for a couple seasons but it never made any sense, so I quit). Musashi […]

What Are You Doing Next Weekend?

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in Events

So, you might remember that we mentioned local con Sugoicon in the last podcast. Specifically, we’re going to be there- at least, Shapiro Keats and Musashi and I are, and maybe Mazinga will drop by and also Ed, but probably just to make fun of us (I don’t know if Ed’s wife will come, but […]


Yellow Menace Podcast: Episode 10 – The Yakuza

Written by Musashi on . Posted in Film, Moviecast

10101010…it’s our special Binary Day episode! It was also 42 day, given that 101010 is binary for ’42′. No Vogon constructor fleets showed up, however…which is fortunate for all of us. Patricia demanded discussions about Tony Jaa and Kim Jong-un, and we delivered. There was brief mention of the 2010 Yellow Menace World Tour (actually, […]
