The cast of HBO’s “Vinyl.”
Kittens, this week, we went OFF on HBO’s new series “Vinyl.” Set in New York City just two years after Mad Men ended (a comparison we’re making for very deliberate reasons), Vinyl’s about the people in and around the music industry of the day; specifically from the East Coast perspective. We could not WAIT for this show to come out.
And we hated it.
Okay, Tom hated it. Lorenzo spends some time defending it but even he admits it has some serious flaws, all of which is disappointing to us, since the creative team behind the series is Martin Fucking Scorsese and Mick Fucking Jagger. Is it so wrong that our expectations were high with a pedigree like that behind it?
We also do a bit of a dive on the Grammys red carpet and why it is, by necessity, quite different from the acting-based awards show red carpets. Deep thoughts: Musicians are different from actors.
And finally, we continue our Oscars-ology feature, by examining the recent red carpet styles of two Oscar nominees, Best Actress Nom Brie Larson…
And Best Supporting Actress Nom, Kate Winslet:
Conclusions are drawn and predictions are made. SPOILER: Kate will wear something body-con.
It’s all there, darlings. Seventy-nine minutes of us sipping coffee and telling the world what it’s all about.
Thanks once again for all your support, kittens! And if you are so inclined, you can download/subscribe to the podcast here.
