We’re back with a movie that’s my own age! We explain where
we’ve been for a month – the answers are disappointing, I assure
you – and dive into Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting. We earned
the Explicit rating on this one. Mom brags about her memory and
recalls her high school students watching this wholly appropriate
film about heroin, while I mistake the amount of boys in my
elementary school for the amount of girls (trust me, it was
relevant in the context of the episode) and forget everything she
said to me while we were watching. I ask about the nineties and
what the world was like when I was born, to which Mom responds by
making self-deprecating jokes about achieving nothing with her
life. Thankfully, she did make me and I made this podcast, so it
was all worth it. We discuss music and Gulf Wars for a bit, because
we never go quite off-track enough apparently. When we do get back
to the film itself, I share some of the knowledge which paying
college tuition for a course featuring this flick has granted me.
That knowledge did not include the word “suppository”, however, or
else I forgot all about it. There is also the obligatory
scene-that-Mom-saw-differently, and oh boy, is it a good one this
The trailer we watched was of course for Danny Boyle’s T2: Trainspotting and the outtakes include part of the first take on our opening for this episode with Mom talking into a microphone that wasn’t recognized by my computer (but she was loud enough to get picked up on mine).
