During our recording of Zach on Film: Singin’ in the Rain, our computer system crashed. When it was relaunched, the recording was still there, and everything looked fine. Even after the evening’s recordings, the files were still present and accounted for, everything was saved, and we went about our Major Spoilers business.
Today, however, the story is a bit different. Now the system can’t find the audio files, and we’ve looked everywhere. It can find the audio files for the show we recorded immediately AFTER Zach on Film, but not the files for this episode. This has only happened one or two other times in the history of our podcasts, and it bums us out each and every time. We won’t rerecord this discussion because most of the time the dynamic is lost.
So, no Zach on Film this week. It was an interesting discussion regarding a ’50s take on a ’20s story, and the fact that the entire song list in the movie had previously been released as singles, and the studio was simply looking for a way to tie it all together. Zach received passing marks from everyone, and in the next installment we will look at Moulin Rouge that serves as a nice bookend to the musical genre.
