Episode 91: Giving the Undertaker a Run For His Money

It’s another Monday, and another week of Everlasting Minute!

In minute 91, Dodo Denney is doing yeoman’s work with facial expressions and physical acting. She really knocks it out of the park for the less than 30 seconds she’s in. She is, of course, distressed at the thought of her son being put into a taffy pulling machine…which seems like a nice way of saying “The Rack”. We also get the final Oompa Loompa song, which is also the most dramatic and menacing. We decide that Grandpa Joe is the Honey Badger of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Also, Jason points out that this movie quotes two songs that would be released over 20 years later. We also discuss another Shakesperean quote.

Episode 89: Me Turn Knob. Me See Cowboy. Cowboy Go Bang Bang.

Another Wednesday, and time for your mid-week sweet treat!

In minute 89, Charlie takes the chocolate bar that Mike Teevee doesn’t have the imagination to realize is actually there. Everyone has different ideas for what this technology could lead to, including David. Mike Teevee, of course, wants to use it on himself, and does just that…without permission. In doing so, he gets divided into a million pieces. Jason compares his parenting technique to a hockey great. We discuss the history of the TV dinner, and Jason gets judgmental about the use of them for lunches. We also talk about Wonkavision as a tool for bettering humanity.

Episode 88: Everything Always Comes Back to Nickelback

It’s a brand new week! Thanks for starting it with us!

In minute 88, Mike Teevee is interrupting Willy Wonka, and explains television poorly. Wonka explains how he created Wonkavision…poorly. Also, we realize how much of this scene is lost in translation with today’s television technology. Jason explains his version of 4K to David. We briefly discuss video formats, and why formats end up being adopted. Jason makes a Star Trek reference that completely goes over David’s head. Wonka gives us another literary quote, and we talk Lewis Carroll’s gifts to the literary canon.

Episode 85: It’s Pretty, It’s So Pretty

Happy Labor Day (to our US listeners)!

In minute 85, the Oompa Loompas finish their song, and we move on to a new room. Wonka has a treat for us, because, apparently, he’s going into…motorsports? That’s weird. Anyway, we learn a few things right away about the Wonkamobile, specifically what it’s powered by. Jason and David spend some time talking about the different sodas that are used to power the Wonkamobile, specifically which ones don’t appear to be real, which ones appear to be generic names, and which ones are specific brands. We also talk about the habits of rabbits, as well as John Keats’ poem, Endymion. There are also numerous digressions in this episode.
