Jared’s kidnopped again this week, so Clint enlists the help of regular guest Grant (of Chip & Ironicus and Six Feats Under fame), as well as his lovely wife Alaina (the co-host of podcasts History Honeys and Sex Archie) to dig deep into the 2006 anime masterpiece Tekkonkinkreet! The fable of two contrasting orphans, Black and White, struggling to survive amid poverty and crime in the chugging, churning city of Treasure Town, Tekkonkinkreet is a wonder to behold, both visually and thematically. Take a listen along with our custom cocktail and drinking rules!
THIS EPISODE’S DRINK:
DRINKING RULES FOR TEKKONKINKREET:
- Any time eyes are a prominent element of the frame
- Every time characters talk about Black or White (who are not them)
- Whenever a new art style invades the scene (e.g. White’s watercolors)
FINISH YOUR DRINK WHEN:
White screams, “I’ve got all the screws Black needs! All of them!”
Join us next week as Jared returns to help us talk about the oddball 1970s psychological thriller The Baby!
