The Cold Open #15–The Welcome to Summer Edition

In The Cold Open Podcast #15, The Welcome to Summer Edition, Matt Reynolds and Robert Sickels begin by discussing Parquet Courts‘ recent show at the Doug Fir Lounge in Portland before segueing into a look at summer movie season so far.  We then wrestle with the implications of “Cahiers du Buffy,” Emily Nussbaum’s response to Matt Zoller Seitz’s “Please, Critics, Write About the Filmmaking,” which features assessments of Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Fargo, and a while host of other things film & TV related.  Then, inspired by Calvin Tomkins “Experimental People” and Matt’s love of video art, we take a look at the wild and wonderful work of Ryan Trecartin.  Our outro this week is Parquet Courts‘ “Instant Disassembly”.  The Cold Open is on iTunes, so you may subscribe!
