Mighty Movie Podcast: (Almost) Live from London: Pirate Radio vs. The Boat That Rocked

Posted: Updated:

So I figured, while I'm in London interviewing some of the people involved with Pirate
Radio
-- Richard Curtis' film about those intrepid souls who in the 60's brought the UK their daily dose of rock when the BBC was loathe to -- why not try a little experiment in whether one dude with a netbook, a pocket camcorder, a copy of QuickTime Pro, and his hotel's complimentary WiFi service can beat the international news bureaus at their own game? Hence this installment of MMP, turned around on-site: Our first video episode, wherein some Londoners mull over the relative merits of the film's original, British title, THE BOAT THAT ROCKED, and the title it'll be carrying in the U.S.

I have to admit that cutting in QuickTime doesn't allow for the most elegant product (I believe the sage physician, Dr. Leonard McCoy, coined the most fitting analogy: "Threading a needle with a sledgehammer"). In any case, please enjoy my chiseled good looks, and a set of rather interesting opinions on one of the more pressing issues of the day. (Okay, maybe I have to get my priorities straight.)
