Exploding Head Movies Episode January 14, 2013

XHM #149 - "Half a decade in the zoo with half a clue" (2013 January 14)

7:30am - 9:04am

This episode marks the 5th anniversary of all iterations of this show, so to celebrate, we start the Oscar season with the 1st of 5 nominated scores: Mychael Danna's The Life of Pi. If you've been relying on the podcast devotedly, you'll notice a gap in episodes. That would mark the Mayan apocalypse that was the server dying. The episodes that aired during that time should soon be available via www.mixcloud.com/xhm

Happy birthday to the squirrels inside the host's head that operate the controls and best of luck to all the Oscar nominees.
