One Bad Mother Episode 67: Even Children Get Older, plus guest Toni Hammer

| 0 comments

Biz and Theresa talk about our eldest kids' birthday parties, what constitutes a momentous age, and how, when kids age, it means parents age! NOOOOOO!!!! Plus, the Universe reminds Theresa she can’t go anywhere…ever, and must be tethered to her baby at all times. Biz moves Ellis into his own room but keeps the emotional baggage with her. Toni Hammer of the blog Is It Bedtime Yet, Stories From a Mom Who Never Wanted the Job joins us to tell us how well people respond to the idea that she didn’t plan on being a mom. (Obviously, everyone is super understanding.)

First and most importantly, Erin went to a place called Nevada City. Less importantly, a man was fired from his job for using the word "homophone" on Facebook and Nicki Minaj is making people upset for the cover art on her new song "Anaconda" because she shows her buns, hun. Get ready for the two worst Nicki Minaj impressions ever.

Throwing Shade #55: Nicki Minaj & Cocaine

| 0 comments

Erin is back from a whirlwind trip to Nevada City, and she’s ready to promote her new book: “What I Have to Say as a Divorcée on Cocaine.” Sadly, it appears that Erin’s advice book hasn’t reached everyone - a man was recently fired for using the word “homophone” and Nicki Minaj is still upsetting people by having a butt. At least Bryan’s Nicki Minaj impression is spot-on.

Song Exploder № 15: Brian Reitzell

Song Exploder
Guests: 
Brian Reitzell

In May 2014, the video game company Ubisoft released Watch Dogs, about a vigilante hacker in Chicago in the near future. Here's how the game is described on their website: "You play as Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker and former thug, whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. While seeking justice for those events, you'll monitor and hack those around you." It sold over 4 million copies in its first week of release.

The music for the game was made by Brian Reitzell, who played drums in the bands Air and Red Kross before becoming a composer and music supervisor for films like Lost In Translation and Beginners. He also creates the music for the NBC television show Hannibal.

In this episode, Brian talks about the unique challenges posed by scoring video games, where players control what happens on screen and as a result, what happens in the music. He'll break down a piece called Donovan, which he wrote for a chase sequence within the game. He also describes the instrument he created from a hundred-year-old piano.

This episode is presented in conjunction with Polygon.

Buy "Donovan" on iTunes here, or on vinyl here.

The Tangerine Dream song that plays is "Mysterious Semblance At the Strand of Nightmares."
