Episode 100: Thank You

Welcome to the final regular episode of Everlasting Minute.

In Minute 100, we have the Wonkavator flying, and we get credits and a final fade to black. David goes through the credits, and talks about a recent field trip that he took to see the film in the theater for the first time, and details some time meeting Paris Themmen and Julie Dawn Cole.

Jason and David humbly thank everyone who has been listening as we’ve gone on this journey, and everyone who will find this show in the weeks, months and years to come.

We will be back at some point with more content…maybe sooner than you can possibly imagine.

Episode 75: Lickable Wallpaper Lifehack

Happy Friday!

We’re three quarters of the way through the movie. In minute 75, Violet and Mr. Beauregarde take their leave, and we head into a hallway with lickable wallpaper. We talk about the continued uncomfortability of Denise Nickerson’s blueberry costume. We discuss the origin of the literary quote that Willy Wonka dispenses in this minute, and the misunderstandings of childhood. We also see another example where the context of the literary quotes help us understand why it’s being used in this moment. Toward the end of the episode, David brings the episode to a screeching halt. We finish the episode by talking about the logistics of lickable wallpaper.

See you next week!

Episode 74: Wonka’s Sense of Humor

Happy Wednesday!

In Minute 74, we’re continuing to deal with Violet’s transformation. The Oompa Loompas moralize, and Mr. Beauregarde is very concerned for his daughter’s well being. We talk about this version of the Oompa Loompa song, and whether or not it’s diegetic. David breaks down the lyrics, trying to figure out what they’re getting at this time. We discuss how difficult it must have been to be Denise Nickerson for the shooting of this scene, and talk about the costume that she had to stay in for long stretches. There’s also a discussion about the gum chewing habits of our hosts.

Episode 73: Was The Gum Real?

It’s a brand new week!

In minute 73, Violet is chewing away at a piece of gum, and it has extremely unintended results. We talk about the rather blase attitudes of several members of the tour. We also talk about the very quick change in Mr. Beauregarde’s attitude, and the fact that he is apparently very fond of sour cream. We talk a bit about the logistics of inflating Violet’s costume, and how that may have affected the on set dialogue recording. We also discuss the possibility that a famous comedian may have gotten his stage persona from this very minute…

Episode 63: People Are Kinda Gross

Happy Friday!

In minute 63, we’re talking boat rides, physics, spitting and nose picking. We talk about how the physical travel of the Wonkatania worked in terms of filming, but we also discuss how boating on chocolate would actually work. David asks a question about the nature of the Chocolate Room, and what its actual purpose is. We also talk about the drama of shooting a film with adolescents, and David catches himself being wrong…again.

Also, it has been brought to our attention that Denise Nickerson, who played Violet, has suffered a stroke. You can read the EW story here, and can donate to the family for medical care here. We here at Everlasting Minute wish her a speedy recovery, and our thoughts are with her and her family.

Episode 20: Empty Promises to Computers

Welcome back for your mid-week sweet treat! In minute 20, we continue with the computer operator scene, and the computer operator is becoming unhinged. In fairness, he does have to answer to these stern looking gentlemen, who may or may not be mobsters of some stripe. Charlie stares at a television, and we briefly meet the next of our Golden Ticket winners, Violet Beauregarde. Also, Jason is apparently sponsored by a TV company.
