Exploding Head Movies Episode January 2, 2012

XHM #96 - "Rebuild all your Mayan ruins" (2012 January 02)

7:33am - 10:08am

For the 1st episode of 2012, two different takes on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo are profiled, focusing primarily on Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross' work for the latest adaptation, though Jacob Groth gets his due. As mentioned during the show, I have many 2012-inspired songs that I'll dole out over the next few episodes as an cataclysmic motif.

Hope you have a fantastic holiday season. Today is the ninth night of Christmas; guess what Shakespeare's twelfth night is about?
