Sneaky Dragon Episode 319

by David Dedrick on January 14, 2018

Hola, Sneakers! Welcome to Episode 319 of Sneaky Dragon, the show that gives and gives and gives, and you never visit!

This week on the show Nina Matsumoto drops by unexpectedly about halfway through the episode, but until then Ian and Dave do some plugs; get reviewed; drop some trivia; wax nostalgic over lip syncing; go to the movies with head writer Jack Nicholson; find Ted Danson hiding in a barn; have some Oprah thoughts; rate political dynasties; narrow their perspective; praise old A&E; praise Dick Clements and Ian Le Frenais; pitch a mystery show; bleak out on Black Mirror; cure their nervousness; and investigate sleepy brains.

After Nina drops in, they bring up the vomit draft; talk convention trips; get a TCAF fake out; burn Toronto; reveal an anti-music sentiment; talk video games old and new; discuss Singing in the Rain and Beauty and the Beast; place flowers on the grave of Every Frame A Painting; marvel at the mysterious live action Disney Cinderella film; ask a lot of weird questions about Beauty and the Beast; make bold Black Panther predictions; cast the animated Sparks! movie; and do some general and generous back patting.

Thanks for listening.

And don’t forget our wonderful new contest! Because it’s amazing!!!

In the traditional version of Sleeping Beauty, when the Princess pricked her finger on the spindle and fell asleep for a hundred years, so did everyone else in the castle. When the spell was broken, everyone got #woke to not dissing fairy godmothers by leaving them off the christening party guest list.

I had pretty much exactly the same experience as Nina’s watching “Singing in the Rain”: I had no idea what it was about, knew about the “Singing in the Rain” bit, and it sounds like she watched it randomly on a plane, too. I was much less enamoured with the random Broadway bit in the middle of the movie, but otherwise I really liked it.

Also, contest entry! Three topics? Umm, dragons, board games, and, I dunno, funny travel stories. Am I locked into these picks?

You are not locked into your topic choices, but your alternative choices have to start with the same letter. 😉

The “Broadway bit” is fantastic by the way because it is a great excuse for more DANCING!

That sequence with the vampy lady with the long legs must’ve been pushing boundaries back then!
