Mamo #7: The Non Fiction List

In lucky show number 7 we trade the constant thrum of the city for the more gentle strains of country life. As promised, we podcast from a country cottage by the shores of, if not a good lake, than at least a Great Lake. Taking a week away from the internet and our slavish devotion to the box office and its tyrannical reliance on numerical value we instead spend some time examining the rising phenomenon of the documentary.

In other Mamo! news; After only 6 good weeks, we have finally done what we set out to do: Used this podcast as a stepping stone to legitimate radio. We're stepping in starting this friday, to guest host a show on Toronto community radio at 88.1 fm, CKLN. August 5, 12 & 19 we are hosting Frameline, a movie centric half hour of real broadcastable goodness. Tune us in starting at 2pm, EDT. If you aren't in the immediate area, you can find the show online at www.ckln.fm/audio/ckln.m3u. It's streaming audio only, so if you miss it, it's gone. Unless we post it here. Which we might do. We'll see.

Not so much a comment about this week's episode, but more of an FYI that Boxofficemojo.com is reporting an estimated total as of August 7th as $199,126,000 domestic (56%...)for Batman Begins.

200 Million.


And this may astound you, but I miss the old ambiance of the previous Mamocasts. Looking forward to hearing you back in synch with the grind of the city, new equipment included.

That is awesome news on Batman, and proof that good can (and will) win out.

As to your comment, I suspect that even with the improved equipment, a little of that good old background noise ought to sneak back in this week when we record from our more familiar urban stomping grounds.

Thanks for listening!
