Scottish and Irish folk songs combined with the Lord of the Rings music and a wee bit o’Celtic fun. The Brobdingnagian Bards (pronounced brob-din-nahg-EE-en) were The Original Celtic Renaissance music duo from Austin, Texas. Their unique brand of folk music on the autoharp, recorder, and mandolin made them one of the most-popular Celtic music groups online where they continue to give away thousands of free Celtic MP3 downloads daily. From 1999 to 2008, the Brobdingnagian Bards performed coas ...

Laps are an illusion, and so may be the plot of the Lords of Flatbush. But the career boost this movie was and the impact these characters had on future tv show and film characters is no illusion at all. We talk the lords—and the lord who almost was—while also trying to understand New York neighborhoods (spoiler alert: we're still staring at our ma…
 
Put on your ball gowns and grab your...pool floaties? Lorelai is comparing a family catfight to Dynasty, and we’re not sure what that has to do with formalwear or swimming pools. We talk the ‘80s TV hit and the 2016 reboot of the series, which both feature plenty of family drama but have some notable changes between the two. We talk about how the C…
 
Surf’s up, beach partiers! If beach volleyball wasn’t enough for you, great! We’re going back to the beach with Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon. Summer may be wrapping up for us, but it was never ending in the Beach Party movies, which featured plenty of surfing, dancing, and repeating plot lines. How did these movies reflect teenage culture w…
 
We feel the need...the need for beach volleyball! We’re going back to the ‘80s again for a closer look at Top Gun, the fighter jet blockbuster that launched Tom Cruise to stardom. How does this movie compare with the real Top Gun in the Navy? What other pop culture has used this same pop culture ref? Why does all beach volleyball attire seem so unc…
 
Dragon Con 2020 is virtual this year. We have lots of shows and workshops we will do this weekend. But it also starts on Wednesday, September 2 with the Filk Music Track Pre-Show. You can find our complete Dragon Con schedule right here. This is Patreon Episode number 19 and overall Episode 59. ANDREW MCKEE SHOWS & NEWS Life’s A Faire Personal Live…
 
Who wrote The Frog Prince, Cinderella, Rapunzel, and Little Red Riding Hood? The Brothers Grimm! And who wrote a terrible letter telling Richard not to marry Emily? Perhaps someone even more terrifying! This ep takes a closer look at the fairy tales you probably grew up on, as well as the much more gruesome versions you probably didn’t. We talk a n…
 
If you liked World War II, you’ll love this episode! And if you love Lane’s cousin Christine, you’ll love her reference to Hogan’s Heroes, the ‘60s sitcom that was set in...a German prison camp? Believe it or not, this TV show was controversial for a second and a hit long after that. We talk about the real experiences of the cast during WWII, how t…
 
Who wrote about giant wasps, talking horses, and eating babies? Paris Geller knows the answer! In this ep we’re trying to figure out what the hey “brobdingnagian” means—and how to say it. We cover the 1726 novel Gulliver’s Travels (where the word originated), as well as other words the same author invented, why this novel was controversial when it …
 
Yo, Adrian! We’ve got on our leather jackets and filled our glasses full of raw eggs to talk about another Best Picture winner. We want to know why Lorelai thinks Jess Mariano is like Rocky Balboa, the classic sports underdog hero from a writer/director who lived out a Cinderella story. We talk about a bunch of sequels, a famous statue, and a dog n…
 
Stay in school and read a book, kids! Or...do what we did and watch the movie instead of reading the 800+ page novel. We may not know if the book is better than the movie, but we do know we loved the 2012 adaptation of Anna Karenina! We talk about the gorgeous costumes, a horse called Frou Frou, and a whole bunch of complicated family relationships…
 
When the bells start to chime, you know it’s Hart to Hart time! But who knew this ‘80s TV drama could be so educational? We sure didn’t, which is why we needed to watch a few episodes to figure out how it would help Luke and Lorelai break into a church. We talk about hypnotism, detective procedurals, and how this show is related to a new HBO docume…
 
It was the beginning of an incredible time—bad time, good time...Ragtime! Richard and Emily are having a not-so-incredible time because of their visitors while we’re having a bad time watching a movie but a good time discussing it...Ragtime! If that makes no sense, well, neither does this 1981 movie. It kicks off our conversation about the architec…
 
Swish swish! We’re back with the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad to talk all the Tarantino, samurai swords, and complicated plot of the Kill Bill saga. Since Lorelai is comparing Emily to Uma Thurman’s revenge-focused Bride and Rory is dressing up as the ball-and-chain-wielding Gogo, we gotta talk about how these blood-soaked movies relate to the …
 
It’s Gilmore Girls meets Eminem! Rory is trying to sell a rewrite of an article to Doyle, and B-Rabbit is trying to sell his music in Detroit. We take on one of the Gilmores’ most recent pop culture refs with the help of an Eminem super fan. With Heather’s help, we talk differences between the movie starring Eminem and the real Eminem, how it compa…
 
We're rebroadcasting this episode (originally our episode 64) in preparation for next week when we tackle a two-in-one reference, involving Fame. Enjoy! We’re gonna live forever, just like Michel and Debbie Allen! We’re talking about paying in sweat in the various versions of Fame. How did the characters in Fame pay in sweat? Did the cast really go…
 
Bada bing! Is this the most-referenced piece of pop culture on Gilmore Girls? While we’re focusing on one reference in the only Emmy-winning episode of our favorite show, we can’t ignore how many times The Godfather has gotten a shout-out. What did the real mafia think of this movie? Why did it have so much Oscar controversy? And how do the Corleon…
 
Welcome to another episode of SO IT’S A SHOW?...hopefully you’re emotionally ready for it! We return to the age-old (or at least, 1980s-old) question: Duckie or Blane? Kirk is referencing Pretty in Pink, and that means it’s time for us to go back to ‘80s teen movies. We discuss why Lindsay wanted to talk about this movie, why it reminded Kyla of he…
 
We talk about what's going on with music in this crisis, what gigs we still have, and what are new projects are! In this episode.... What we are going to do to keep getting music to you, how we are helping others, and a little random silliness (Because we need silliness now). This is Patreon Episode number 17 and overall Episode 57. Links we talked…
 
Listen, National Velvet, you have to listen to this episode. The Kyla and The Taylor are talking THE Elizabeth Taylor in National Velvet. This movie has a lot of animal-obsessed kids, and we’re digging in to how they connect with Lorelai’s pony obsession as a kid. The Kyla and The Taylor also debate if this movie was good, the varying shades of Mic…
 
We think the title says it all…we went to Stars Hollow! As a special episode before we kick off our dive into the fourth season of Gilmore Girls, we’re recapping all the magic of of our visit to Lorelai and Rory’s hometown on the Warner Brothers Studio Tour. We walked around the town square, ate just like Gilmore Girls, and almost met Mindy Kaling—…
