GG Goes To The Movies #12: A “Halloween” Watch-Along

In what we hope will be a new, long-running segment for the podcast, Ted and I start our watch-along series with John Carpenter’s 1978 film “Halloween”. This episode works a lot like director commentary for a film. However, you can chose to listen to it either along with the film, or as stand-alone audio. We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we loved recording it!

Why Blink 182’s “Nine” Is The Album We Didn’t Know We Needed

In today’s world of music, in regards to its consumption, there’s not much need for purchasing physical copies of albums anymore. Between digital downloads, streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music, and CD players being ripped out of every known device they once inhabited, you’re hard-pressed for a reason to purchase a CD or vinyl record.
