What we're about

Ok, every month we will have a meetup (+-30-60 yr old, singles, couples etc) in various locations (Cary, Raleigh, Garner, Holly Springs) on a Sat afternoon (2 pm) to try a inexpensive restaurant, discuss the film for that month (you watch at home) and discuss the podcast for that month (that you have listened to) ... let’s give this a shot... I’m not sure how it will be or it may be a great way to meet like minded people and have a good time. Let’s see. Right now once a month but who knows. Most meetups will cost $1 to cover meetup fees. No drama, no religion, no politics

Ok just to clear up my unclear description of the group... you watch the movie (will probably have to rent appleTV, AmazonFire, or Redbox digital just to name a few places) & listen to the podcast (which has nothing to do with the movie) ...

February podcast is long (didn’t check, sorry) so listen to 2-6 episodes (any episodes of Armchair Expert)... your choice... I will keep an eye on the length of each podcast from now on...

At the meetup we will discuss the film... discuss the podcast... and try the pizza &/or beer...

Hope this makes sense. There are several places to get the podcast according to what device you are listening on. Feel free to contact me with any questions
This film was #125 on Rankers List The Best Movies of All Time... I remember liking the movie years ago much more than I did tonight... please bring a list (all years and all genres) of films you have not seen ever or only once a long time ago that you would like to see ... maybe with some part of it maybe award winner... I will keep a running list and use this to pick our films. I will mix up genres and ones from old to new so we are constantly having a wide variety... and they will also come from people who actually attend the meetups. This way we get to see a variety and maybe films we wouldn’t-normally see.

Listen to six episodes of (30 min approx) podcast Song Exploder ... it is a podcast where musicians take apart their songs, and piece by piece, tell the story of how they were made.

Using the isolated, individual tracks from a recording, Hrishikesh asks artists to delve into the specific decisions that went into creating their work. Hrishikesh edits the interviews, removing his side of the conversation and condensing the story to be tightly focused on how the artists brought their songs to life.

May “Madame X” $1
