SMEGHEADS: THE RED DWARF PODCAST // SEASON 1 EPISODE 5 - 'CONFIDENCE AND PARANOIA'  

This episode of SMEGHEADS will mostly be remembered for descending into "bad date" stories. Daniela's story was about ice cream and my story was about urine. Besides that, this was surprisingly a GREAT episode of Red Dwarf, and I really don't remember it being this good.

Its the episode where Lister gets radiation poisoning which - being a sci fi comedy - means his hallucinations come to life. This comes in the form of a creepy old guy which is the physical manifestation of Lister's Paranoia; and a smarmy loud American which represents Lister's Confidence. Things escalate quickly and it does not end too well.

This episode is also the first time the crew encounter another human, in the Mayor of Warsaw. Its too bad he instantly combusts the second he appears, but then some relationships are like that right? 

For more info on this episode of Red Dwarf, here is some excellent data!

Notes

According to the Series I DVD, this episode was intended to be the final episode of the series, withKochanski's hologram appearing and thus becoming a regular character in Series II. However, an earlier episode featuring Rimmer trying to build himself a new body was scrapped and the plot of "Me²" was devised. Ultimately, although Clare Grogan would reprise Kochanski a couple more times in later seasons, the character would not become a regular until Series VII, when another actress, Chloë Annett, would play the role as a living version of Kochanski from another dimension.Not counting the regular characters, or artificial intelligences such as the Revolving Toilet or Talkie Toaster, the Mayor of Warsaw, Confidence and Paranoia are the first human characters to be seen onboard Red Dwarf since the accident three million years earlier (the Cat Priest was course of the felis sapiens).Rimmer reveals that, as a hologram, he undertakes "Necrobics", hologramatic exercises for the dead. This may explain the exercise chart above the mirror in the sleeping quarters, since Lister and the Cat certainly never exercise. Rimmer is seen exercising frequently in the earlier series.

Background Information

Craig Ferguson and Lee Cornes originally auditioned for the parts of Lister and Rimmer, respectively. Ferguson later relocated to the US and became known for his work co-starring on The Drew Carey Showand, later, as host of The Late Late Show with Craig FergusonHattie Hayridge was once a guest on his talk show.The exterior of the ship seen during the space walk was a large, pu
SMEGHEADS: THE RED DWARF PODCAST - SEASON 1 EPISODE 3 - 'BALANCE OF POWER'  

We ask the question: If they can get food instantly from the machines, how come they run out of certain foods in later episodes? Does it come from a stock? Is it like a Star Trek replicator? Does it matter?

I know what you're thinking. You don't have to say it. You don't have to say the words "Jed and Daniela, how on earth are you going to do a Red Dwarf podcast on 'Balance of Power'? Its the worst episode ever and hardly anything happens! Why put yourself through it you idiots!" and my reply is "Well mum, we've got to at least try!" So we did!

Yes, this is the worst episode of Red Dwarf, but even the worst episode of this show is miles better than the best episodes of some other shows. It has enough interesting things in it to keep us going. 

 

This episode is all about Rimmer trying to assert himself and establish a recognised hierarchy on Red Dwarf, even though it's only himself and Lister aboard. He does this by bribing Lister into doing things by rewarding him with cigarettes he has hidden in an air duct. Lister aims to counteract this situation by passing the Chef's exam, automatically making him Rimmer's superior, and therefore disrupting the "balance of power" currently aboard Red Dwarf. Rimmer resorts to some sneaky tactics to try to put Lister off. It sounds fine when written down, but this episode is weak compared to anything else in Season 1.

Beside the Red Dwarf stuff we also hear startling revelations about Daniela's drinking games, and Jed attempts a joke about a crocodile.

83: Danna Durante the University of Georgia's Head Coach  


University of Georgia head coach, Danna Durante.

 

This week's guest is Danna Durante (née Danna Lister). She grew up as an elite gymnast in Oklahoma. After the 1988 Olympic Trials she went on to a successful career at Arizona State where she scored 5 perfect 10's, then became a judge and college coach. She had a very rocky start at the University of Georgia. It was easy to see that the team was still loyal to outgoing coach Jay Clarke and reluctant to embrace a new head coach. But in her first year, she lead Georgia to their first NCAA Championship final in four years. Entering her second year at Georgia, we discuss:

If she will be wearing sequence gowns and heels like her predecessor Suzanne Yoculan. Lindsey Cheek's vault - fans want it to get a 10 already for crying out loud! Collaborating on choreography with Georgia alum, Cassidy McComb  How she got her very divided, Jay Clarke devoted team on board when she took over. If former head coach Yoculan gives her advice or Creating a welcoming environment for both atheist, agnostic and religious student-athletes. How she determines when to push the difficulty level with athletes like Brandi Jay who's doing a full-out on floor. How her college boyfriend made a gym-fantasy marriage proposal come true. Making a gymnastics coach marriage work.

109. Zoe Lister-Jones  

Struggle is just how Zoe Lister-Jones rolls. She watched her parents struggle to make a living from their art, and tussled with her own decision to pursue acting versus stability. She struggled to break into film, finally deciding that instead of fighting the system, she'd create one, co-writing and acting in her own projects. The biggest yet is Band Aid, which just happened to help women battling for a place on a film crew. It's a comedy about artistic and personal failure, and our struggle to understand each other as men and women. In exposing her own insecurities - Do other people have it more figured out? A better relationship? - she reminds us that if we're far from perfect, we're about as far from it as everyone else. Lister-Jones will continue to struggle for her art, but she's learned it doesn't have to be so hard - it's about your mindset, not your circumstances.

#61: "Adventure Painting" w/ Anthony Lister  

Anthony Lister was born in Brisbane, Australia in 1979. He graduated from the Queensland College of Art in Brisbane in 2001 and traveled to New York soon after where he mentored under the auspices Max Gimblett, one of New Zealand's most influential living artists. Lister began painting on the streets at the age of 17; a location which has become a key part of his practice as a space where he can take pleasure in his 'hobby' of producing art rather than the 'craft' of studio work. He has since exhibited his work extensively within Australia and internationally both in the gallery and on the streets. He is considered to be one of Australia’s most renowned contemporary artists.

Topics Discussed:

The process of creating his artwork Exploring the idea of "adventure painting" A curious exploration of the dualities of life Skateboarding abstracting itself into artwork Creative and mental breakthroughs Tactility of art changing or being lost with the advent of technologies His virtual reality app Decorating the apocalypse Seeing artwork in the flesh His love for the work of Egon Schiele

MS27: Bliv personligt mere effektiv på studiet med disse to metoder.  

Vil du have konkrete metoder til, hvordan du prioriterer og skaber mere struktur for dig selv og på studiet og vil du forfine og vinde mere tid i hverdagen, så er dagens podcast en buffet af gode råd til mere effektivitet og bedre planlægning.

Min gæst i studiet i dag er Birgitte Feldborg og hun er master i personlig effektivitet.

I podcasten får du viden om: 

Hvad er erfaringen med vores eget selvbillede af at være effektive og nå en masse i løbet af en dag og så hvad realiteterne viser? Hvor meget spildtid og hvor effektive vi er, hver dag på en arbejdsdag fra kl. 8-16? Hvordan kan det være at vi har så svært ved at have gode vaner med at være effektive og strukturelle, når vi aldrig før har stræbt efter at nå så meget på så kort tid? Hvad er typiske problemstillinger dine klienter og kursister har med personlig effektivitet? Hvad kommer først: motivationen til at lægge en plan eller planen så vi bliver motiveret til at udføre vores opgaver og hvorfor? Jeg møder studerende der lægger den ene plan efter den anden, men overholder dem sjældent eller slet ikke starter på planen/planerne – hvordan kan det være? Hvad kan kvæle den bedste plan, når vi går i gang med en ny dag (tidsoptimisme, glemmer transporttid, siger ja til mere undervejs i dagen…) Vi skal i værktøjsmode nu og hvad har du i tasken til os i dag. Hvad kan være en god øvelse eller metode til at lære at være mere struktureret? Hvordan finder man en metode til at vælge til og fra, så man bliver en ninja til at prioriterer? (realisme) Har man et problem hvis man har svært ved at afgrænse sig og sige nej, når vi taler om personlig effektivitet? Jeg snakker med studerende der laver lister og lister…hvad er en god liste og hvordan bruger man den i løbet af dagen? Hvad så hvis man møder en studerende der siger, at vedkommende føler sig mere låst af stramme planer og to-do-lister. De synes de mister deres kreativitet…hvad vil du sige til dem? Du taler om aktive beslutninger, hvad betyder det? Har du apps, programmer eller andet du vil anbefale til det vi taler om i dag?
Inequality: what can be done? [Audio]

Skinny Lister  

I wish I could say I first found Skinny Lister in a pub some late evening while folks were dancing on the tables. I trust that that happens, but my unforgettable experience with this kick-ass English folk-punk band was at a hotel lobby in midday, in the midst of a sober crowd in Austin, Texas. I was coming back to my hotel during SXSW 2013 in hopes of grabbing a short nap when I saw Lorna Thomas winning the hearts of a gathering crowd with her flirtatious, cheer-me-up style of singing and dancing. Then my eyes and ears found a punkish band with accordion, upright bass, guitars, and vocals from Dan Heptinstall. I couldn't leave, I never napped, and I fell head over clicking heels for their reels and jigs and whatever else they tossed our way. When it was done, I shook their hands, gave them high-fives and hugs, and handed them my card. Months later, they showed up at my desk early in the day bearing lots of beer, some mysterious alcohol in an even-more-mysterious jug, and an assortment of instruments. After watching this Tiny Desk Concert, when you're ready for more and you can't find Skinny Lister playing your local pub, you can check out its debut album, Forge & Flagon — it'll tide you over until the band makes it back to your town.

Podcast 44 (Hjørnets Top 100 Bedste Film, del 1 - nr. 100 til nr. 51)  

Velkommen til en historisk podcast i mere end en forstand. For det første er denne Top 100 uden tvivl den største opgave vi nogensinde har kastet os ud i og for det andet skal du nu på en rejse gennem vores fælles filmhistorie. Men lad os starte ved begyndelsen.

Hvorfor lave en Top 100?
- Fordi det er skide skægt. Derfor. Minderne fra nye og gamle filmoplevelser vælter frem, når man løber sådan en marathon ned ad Memory Lane.

Hvad kan jeg få ud af jeres Top 100?
- Forhåbentlig en hel del. Du vil gennem vores filmvalg komme meget nærmere en idé om hvem Casper og Jesper er som mennesker og i processen forhåbentlig blive inspireret til at se et par af de film vi nævner. Til sidst håber vi også at dette kan inspirere dig til at lave din egen liste og få den samme gode oplevelse ud af det som vi har haft.

Hvilke kriterier har filmene på Top 100-listen skulle opfylde for at komme med?
- Listen er sammensat udfra meget personlige kriterier. Det er film der på den ene eller anden måde har bidt sig fast i vores filmhjerner, uden nogensinde at give slip igen. Film der har betydet mere for os end nogen andre. Derfor forekommer der også en hel del film på listen der ikke i den klassiske forstand er "gode".

Men I er jo to, så hvordan har I lavet én liste?
- Vi begyndte med at lave hver vores Top 100 over personligt bedste film. Derefter mødtes vi og fandt ud af hvor mange gengangere der var på vores lister (24 i alt). Vi udregnede herefter hver gengangers gennemsnitlige placering. Hvis Casper altså havde Mighty Ducks på nr. 9 og Jesper havde den på nr. 11, fik den nr. 10. MEN! Fordi dette jo er Filmnørdens Hjørnes Top 100 og et fælles projekt, så fik gengangerne førsteprioritet. Det vil sige de 24 film som gik igen på vores lister, blev rykket op så de nu udgør de 24 øverste pladser på listen. Fra nr. 25 og op til nr. 100 har vi så skiftevis sat en film ind på listen, ud fra vores egne lister. Giver det mening?

Hvorfor har i bidt Top 100-listen over på midten og udgivet den i to podcasts i stedet for en lang, gloriøs marathon-podcast?
- For at sige det som det er, så har vi gjort det for at presse citronen. Derudover fordi du uden tvivl har brug for en pause efter at ha' hørt på os kværne løs om 50 film. Og sidst men ikke mindst fordi redigeringsprocessen ville være så lang, at der ville gå mange uger inden vi kunne udgive noget som helst.

Hvornår kommer Top 100-listen på skrift?
- Vi vil jo gerne holde spændingen hen så længe som muligt, så vi venter med at offentliggøre listen på skrift, indtil vi har gennemgået anden og sidste del af listen i podcast 45.

Hvorfor er der ingen citater i introen som der plejer at være?
- Fordi vi synes den sædvanlige intro (med citater) symbolsk ville fjerne fokus fra de film vi snakker om i podcasten. Og nu du snakker om intro, så er der snart noget nyt på vej, men det skal du nok snart høre mere om...

Hvad er klokken?
- Den er fem minutter i FILMNØRDENS HJØRNE - TOP 100 BEDSTE FILM, så kan du så komme i gang!

Anthony Lister's songs to ground him
