Episode 86: Porkopolis

It’s Wednesday! Time for your mid week sweet treat!

In minute 86, we are swifter than eagles…stronger than lions…and we are keeping our eyes open and our mouths shut. The tour group is off on a short little joyride on Wonka’s WonkaMobile. Mike Teevee and his mom are working the angles. Grandpa Joe is making fun of politicians, and the WonkaMobile is slowly traversing the room. By the end of the minute, everything is a foamy, sticky mess, and Wonka is singing operas. Along the way, Jason and David discuss the physics of beer, German lieder and industrial metal, and the origins of the Windy City. Also, David messes with Jason’s mind.

We’ll see you all back here on Friday!

Episode 76: Everlasting Minute After Dark (Parental Discretion is Advised)

It’s going to be a good Monday.

In minute 76, things get a little…adult. We continue with the lickable wallpaper, and Wonka is not pleased with Veruca when she questions him about Snozzberries. He then leads them into a room with a lot of bubbles, and Grandpa and Charlie make a very bad choice. We discuss the nature of the Snozzberry, and how the word took on a new meaning in the late 70s, thanks to Mr. Roald Dahl. We also talk about artificially flavored banana candies, a couple more literary references, and what would happen if you took candy to Dairy Queen.

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!
