Subject:CINEMA #140 – "Directors’ Chair: Master Of The Turkey – The Films of Ed Wood"

This week, in honor of Thanksgiving this coming Thursday, Kim and TC take on the films of the director most noted for making turkeys – the legendary Ed Wood!

Also on today's show: The week's news in Cinema Subjects, our take on Entertainment Weekly's 50 Sexiest Movies list, the latest developments on Dancing With The Stars, your E-mail, we address a spoiler controversy,  and a complete review of the highly anticipated film version of Stephanie Meyer's blockbuster novel TWILIGHT.

ARTIST OF THE WEEK

Our Artist Of The Week this week is Kevin Reeves, a fantastic singer I discovered on Adam Curry's Daily Source Code show a few years back. His songs are fantastic, and Kevin is easily one of my favorite podsafe artists. I think you're gonna love his stuff! Music provided courtesy of the Podsafe Music Network.

Featured Songs:

"Throw Me A Line"
"Afraid And Alone"
"Shine"
"Wasted"

Check him out today!  http://www.myspace.com/kevinreevesmusic.  And be sure to tell him you heard his music on Subject:CINEMA! If you're a musician and would like to be Subject:CINEMA's Artist Of The Week, contact us!

RICK ROLL UPDATE

Last week, we are (not) ashamed to admit we RickRolled everyone thanks to a news story about singer Rick Astley. I was VERY disappointed we didn't get more mail about it (pout, pout), but regular listener Rob Collier did send us a link to a hilarious take off on Rick's hit that is most commonly used for the RickRoll phenonemon…check it out…if you dare…:

MERRY TOSSMAS

Regular listener R Chris Fagnan brought up an excellent campaign sponsored by Focus On The Family that concentrates on making people aware of retailers who either embrace, sort-of embrace, and blow off the word "Christmas" in their holiday advertising. We read Chris' mail this week in our e-mail segment, and if you want to know more about it, check out the list on the Focus On The Family Action list of retailers at http://www.citizenlink.org/content/A000008670.cfm
