Download Episode 39, “Little Gold Men”

Gobbledygeek episode 39, “Little Gold Men,” is available for download right here. In this week’s episode, Paul and I do some more awards predicting, this time for the biggies: the Oscars! (And also this time, uh, you’ll actually hear the show before the awards show airs.) We discuss what will win, what should win, and what wasn’t even nominated in each category. Andrew Garfield, we stand by you, sir. We also talk upcoming DVD releases, then Paul reviews the new Decemberists album The King Is Dead before I put a cap on things with my overview of The Kinks’ discography, the entirety of which I undertook as a project during our winter break.

We’re also introducing show notes pages for each new episode, listing the music selections heard in each episode as well as links about some of the topics we discuss. I’ll be adding show notes for the previous two episodes from this season, in case you just have to know what song closes out “Springtime for Puffy Val Kilmer.”
