The Velvet Café

A room for thoughts about movies

Making a fool of myself – and you’re invited to listen!

with 10 comments

Have you ever wondered if I sound like the Swedish chef in the Muppets? Now you have the chance to find out. Recently I was invited to be a guest at The Demented Doorknob podcast to talk with the hosts Nick and Steve about two science fiction movies that I recently wrote abut, Splice and Silent Running.

They also made a brief interview where I answered questions such as which my favorite film soundtrack is and which actor I’d like to meet over a dinner.

The show ended with a mandatory quizz game. Without revealing the outcome, I must admit that I’m so embarrassed about it that I’d rather not have you listening to it at all. Can’t you just skip that part and bare me the humiliation? Please?

I also would like to apologize on beforehand for some of my ticks. Every time I hear myself saying eeee or “totally”, it runs an electric shock through my body. I hope I’ll do better next time.

Enough of apologies now though! I had a blast doing the show and hopelly you’ll have fun too, if nothing else out of schadenfreude.

Oh, and by the way: The podcasts starts a little bit confusing with a five-minute leftover from a previous podcast. Just keep listening.  I’ll turn up in five or six minutes.

  2. Jessica, you did a great job on the discussion and the Tower. That game is no joke, and you were really close to having a good score. It was a fun episode, especially since I got to have a cameo at the beginning. All kidding aside, that Werewolves category was surprisingly tough, especially if you’re not that familiar with the genre.

    • Awww thanks Dan. If I’d thought twice I’d gone for the other topic. I just fell for the “aooo” title for some reason. I wanted to say it. But I should have realized that it would be about warewolves. I know nothing about warewolf movies.

  3. You sounded almost British to my American ears… except for the “Yah, Yah, Yahs”.

    • Well I should since we’re taught British english at school. But “yah”. Yak. That’s not good to hear. One more tic I need to be aware of.

  4. You were just fine, Jessica! And don’t feel embarrassed about the Tower. There have been MUCH worse performances (MUCH… MUCH worse).

    And hey, I told you I could edit the episode to be coherent despite all the issues had. 😛

    • I think you did an amazing job Nick. You’re a master editor!

  5. Good on you! It takes a lot of guts to listen to yourself on the radio. And judging by the comments, its sounds like you did a smashing job 🙂

    • It’s not a pleasure but I felt I really had to listen at least a little bit to see what I need to improve since I’m going to appear on a couple of more podcasts the next few months.
