It’s Episode 7 of the Visser of Ozcast and we’ve got a classic case of Blake Griffin-Oscar Nomination-Destroyer-Lights Out FEVER!
I’ll spare you the extended “fever” metaphor, but just know it would have been sick! We open up the show by joining the NBA hype machine/echo chamber with some good ‘ol Blake Griffin gushing. But don’t worry, we stop the basketball fondling soon enough and transition into talk about the recently released Oscar Nominations. We hem and haw about The Kids Are Alright, oooo and awww about Natalie Portman, and draw lines in the sand between True Grit and Black Swa…n
After escaping from the quagmire that is discussing award shows like they are actual, meaningful things, we dish on the album of the year front runner, Kaputt, by Destroyer aka Dan Bejar. We talk about Bejar’s styistic shift and even quote a few of our favorite lyrics, which may or may not include references to cocaine and woman. Uh oh, that sound you hear is the dreaded PG-13 tag being slapped on the Visser of Ozcast! We’re doomed!
We wrap up the show by making another plea to watch a woefully under-the-radar FX show, Lights Out. I know, I know. As if we need another story about a down-and-out boxer. Trust me, though, FX does it well. I’d even go as far as saying it PACKS A PUNCH!
That’s about it. Be sure to tune in next week when we broadcast our monumental 8th episode. Plans are already in the works to celebrate our 10th episode. It’s going to be great.
