Mamo 435: Oscars So White, Too!

Mamo!

Mamo jumps up and down on the 2015 nominations for the Oscar, and you get to hear what happens! Are the Oscars “so white?” Is Leonardo DiCaprio “gonna win?” Does The Revenant “suck?” All this and a whole lot of Mad Max: Fury Road love on tonight’s episode.

Plus, if it sounds to you like a crazy person is moaning at the top of his lungs throughout 9/10ths of the episode, you’re not wrong: a crazy person is moaning at the top of his lungs throughout 9/10ths of the episode. And for once, it’s not Price!

The only way that cinematography category could be better would be adding in the true victor of the year Mark Lee Ping Bin and his work on The Assassin.

I mean, it really merits a second listen.

Crazy guy is classic. Amazing MAMO soundtrack.

Really enjoyed the show and your new colour commentators. Made me think of the episode you guys did, I think in a pizzeria, where the fridge was quite loud and ripping guitar solos were very forward. The ramblings of the menataly ill and disenfranchised as well as blazing rock guitar solos are excellent background accompaniment to your show. 👍

A real milestone in “shit storm” recording, with not only Price doing more than usual pontificating with his mouth full, but weathering the totally out of control “musical stylings” of what sounds like an alcoholic transient in full meltdown mode nearby. Congratulations, boys, you’ve done it again.

On a more charitable note, Nice article on Whedon/Abrams, Mr. Brown. Extremely perceptive.

I just wanted to apologize for wasting everyone’s time all these years.

I was listening to this episode of MAMO without headphones in the kitchen the other night and my wife wanted to know what the hell I was listening to, as she couldn’t make out everything with that crazy guy moaning in the background. I tried to explain how MAMO is recorded at “hot live locations” and is very much a conversation with background, but she really didn’t get it as the guy in the background started to moan louder and louder. 🙂

I actually managed to block out the background noises until the last 5 minutes. Once you hear the “voices” you can no longer unhear them. One of them even reminded me of Danny Lloyd’s Shining “Redrum” chant.

I believe the score for CAROL will end up used more movie trailers in the next 5 years than any other film.

John Oliver’s Show last night addresses OSCAR SO WHITE with real fangs. Look for the Joel Edgerton joke.

Maybe Tony Danza’s role in Crash (it’s unanimous, great movie) isn’t so far out into left field as everyone though eh?
