TSOYA Classics: Japanese Toy Culture (January 25, 2007)

| 0 comments

We continue our journey into The Sound of Young America's vast audio archive with this program from The Sound of Young America Classics.

Woodrow Phoenix is the author of "Plastic Culture: How Japanese Toys Conquered the World." Jesse calls him from across the pond and talks to Phoenix about this book, as well as the role of toys in modern society. Phoenix's book touches upon the development of Japanese toy culture, the development of urban toy culture, and the significance of plastic in constructing these toys.

Check out Phoenix's website for more of his work and his twitter to stay updated on his current projects.

Barry Gordon, Co-Star of A Thousand Clowns: Interview on The Sound of Young America

From our special screening of the film A Thousand Clowns at Cinefamily in Los Angeles, a special podcast-only episode of The Sound of Young America: Jesse's conversation with Barry Gordon, the then-15-year-old co-star of the film. Released in 1965 and now out-of-print, the movie stars Jason Robards as Murray, a comedy writer who struggles to come to terms with growing up – something he must do if he wants to stop child protective services from taking away his adopted son Nick, played by Barry Gordon.

Barry Gordon was a child actor who played the role of Nick on the Broadway and touring versions of A Thousand Clowns before making the film; he's since, by turn, been a voice actor, a lawyer, the president of the Screen Actors Guild, a talk show host, a teacher and even a congressional candidate. One of his recent projects has been hosting Left Talk with Barry Gordon. We're very pleased he could join us for this special screening and Q&A, and many thanks go to him and the Cinefamily for helping us put on this event.

The film has finally come back into print - you can get it from Amazon by following this link.

Spread Your Love With These MBMBaM Valentines

| 1 comment

As we mentioned in this week's episode of My Brother, My Brother and Me, a whole mess of webcomic creators came together under the banners of wisdom and love to create some Valentines for you to distribute to your significant others. We think they're absolutely delightful, and we hope your loved ones do as well. Get at them on our Flickr page.

My Brother, My Brother and Me 42: Cracklin' Mendes

Hey, the internet: Will you be our Valentine? We'd be really, really great at it. We promise to shower you with gifts, by which we mean "give you this one podcast, right now, for free." Trust us, that's way better than a selection from Kay -- precious jewelry tarnishes over time. Our wisdom does not.

Suggested talking points: A visit from Vanessa Hudgens, Love DVDs, Businesstown, Hancock Goofs, Broodwife, William H. Macy in Cougarman and Gooseman, 214 It, Three Engagement Rings, Campfires and Baby Skin
