S4TW: Sinatra, Misophonia, and Unicorn Puke

April 17, 2015

(Welcome to Something for the Weekend.  What follows is a list of some of our shows, some shows that aren’t our shows, and some links from around the Internet that we think you’ll enjoy.  Give them a listen/glance.  Thank you.)

STAR WARS EPISODE XIV: You Must Remember This nears the finish line of its Star Wars series with a trio of shows about stars who didn’t serve in World War II.  First up: Frank Sinatra. The Sordidness Tracker contains the phrase “nonstop bacchanal” if you were wondering what Old Blue Eyes was up to.

STAR WARS AGAIN: The Frame covers the release of the new Star Wars trailer, as you’d expect, but don’t sleep on the interview with “Uptown Funk” mastermind Mark Ronson.  (You saw the new Star Wars trailer, right?  Here, watch it again. It was cool.)

LIKE NAILS ON A CHALKBOARD: Reasonably Sound covers misophonia, which is literally “the hatred of sound.”  Mike talks to Molly Templeton about the noises that trigger it for her.

PLAYERS ONLY LOVE YOU WHEN THEY’RE PLAYIN’: Chi Chi Valenti, creator of the Night of 1000 Stevies (Nicks, if that wasn’t clear), is Dana’s guest on The Soundtrack Series.

THE BEST STEVIE NICKS SONG: Is “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” but it’s a fluid ranking.

SPEAKING OF SOUNDTRACKS: Awesome Etiquette deals with absent vegans and the office wanderer this week.

TASTE THE RAINBOW: The New York Times has discovered that the teens, they’re vaping.  Uproxx has the details, the best of which is that there is a flavor called Unicorn Puke, described as “every flavor of Skittles compressed into one.”

THIS WEEK IN TBTL: Bread bags, sleepovers, gyrocopters, and a surplus of Ed Wood references were all on tap this week.   If you click on that link, you can also find out about their brand new newsletter, which you can subscribe to today.

ORI AND THE BLIND FOREST: Top Score checks in with composer Gareth Coker on the 4-years-in-the-making soundtrack for that game.
