Ultrasonic Alarm Call: Loincloths!

We’re back. With season two of Ultrasonic Alarm Call, prairie dog’s most-hiatused podcast.

This week: adapting the classics. We look at Disney’s megaflop, John Carter, as well as the surprisingly excellent Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. And then we look at Geoff Dyer’s book, Zona, which examines Andrei Tarkovsky’s film, Stalker.

Also, Aidan’s apartment building, the Crescent Annex, is probably going to get torn down (not to be confused with the Crescent Apartments which is definitely getting torn down). But for some reason, we don’t get around to talking about that.

But we do dish on all the rumors about Southland theatre’s dismal future. And we explain Happy Days to Shane, because he’s never seen it. I know! Creepy!

Ultrasonic Alarm Call s02 e01: Loincloths! At the table, Aidan Morgan (host), Shane Hnetka and Paul Dechene. Runtime 41 min. Music by the Lazy MKs.

  1. My late father was the architect who designed Southland Theatre. I got to see it being built in 1997, went into the projection rooms and everything. Now it’s just so much garbage waiting to be thrown out, just like the Cornwall and the Cineplex and the Capitol. All the places I went to see movies with my family as a kid, GONE and replaced with the feckin’ Galaxy, a charmless shoddy heap of plastic and synthetic fabric. Or the Rainbow, which gets by on shabby charm and cheap tickets. Cheap always sell in Regina. No wonder I left Regina, living there is like living in a building that burned down a long time ago.
