Ears Wide Shut: or How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Podcast


This week the Comic Cast is full of stars as we come live from the Light House Cinema, Smithfield, Dublin for the launch of  Taming Light – a group exhibition of new painting, photography and illustration paying tribute to one of our favourite  filmmakers,  Stanley Kubrick. We talk to curator and Sunday Business Post film critic John Maguire, artist David Cleary, cinema mogul Michael Roycroft and illustrators Chris Judge and Brenb. We also discuss comic giant Jack Kirby’s comic series of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Redrum, H.A.L. 9000 and jelly donuts – this shows got it all. Enjoy!

John Maguries’ film blog (reviews from the exhibition curator & flm critic)

David Clearys’ site (official site for the photographer artist)

Chris Judge’s Site (one of our fav illustration blogs)

    What was that great tune at the end? That from a Kubrick film?

  2. thecomiccast Says:

    Hey Eoin, it is a great tune, isn’t it? It’s the theme from Eyes Wide Shut and called “Jazz Suite, Waltz 2″ Written by Dmitri Shostakovich.

  3. Stephen Mooney Says:

    Fantastic show lads, really informative.
    What would I have given to have been part of that exhibition.

  4. Chris. J Says:

    Brilliant show again lads. Loved the echo and ambiance from the lighthouse space.

  5. thecomiccast Says:

    Cheers Stephen, def pop in and have a gawk at the exhibition if you get a chance. The Light House is perfect for it – like walking through a 2001 set.

    Thank YOU Chris for coming on the show. Yeah the ambiance sounded great, really opened our eyes to where to record things and duly noted for future episodes.

  6. John M Says:

    Well done on a great show lads, and thanks a million for your support
