The 404 Holiday 2012: The Big Lebowski Video
CNET Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg joins The 404 Podcast for a special Friday episode all about the art of music appreciation. We love having Steve on the show because he actually comes prepared with topics of discussion, and today he launches right into a thoughtful point about how music has become background filler for the digital generation.
It's hard to believe that 2009 has already come and gone, but with the holidays over and 2010 around the corner, we've decided to record a special wrap-up episode to finish off the year. Lots of big changes that happened in the past twelve months, but the most momentous for the show has to be the introduction of the Tricaster and the subsequent evolution into a full-fledged video show. Of course, we have to thank Jason Howell, the man behind all the CNET Podcasts who helped us set up and troubleshoot our new equipment.
While you're enjoying the holiday break, check out this very special pre-recorded Yuletide episode dedicated to the most inaccurate cyberpunk movie ever to tumble out of Hollywood. Of course, we're talking about Hackers, the cult classic film that first phreaked its way into our hearts way back in 1995.
On today's episode of The 404 Podcast, hosts Jeff Bakalar, Wilson G. Tang, and Justin Yu discuss initial reviews of Chris Nolan's "Inception", attempt to predict Steve Jobs' pending announcement about the Apple iPhone 4, and talk 3D TVs with Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg.
CNET Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg joins us today to discuss the Back to the Future video game trailer, Steve's celebrity encounters, 3D surround sound, and more headphone advice for Wilson!
Steve Guttenberg helps us celebrate Audiophiliac Month with some sound-related memes, a look back at Times Square in the 70s, the birth and death of the Apple iPod, and more.
CNET Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg joins The 404 for an extra long and extra random episode that includes an exciting contest--listen to hear your chance to win a pair of Monster Turbine Pro In-Ear Speakers!
The Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg makes an unusual midweek appearance on today's 404 episode and as usual, the discussion topics cover Steve's audiocentric stream of consciousness with a touch of disillusionment, like a Web site that takes the creativity out of naming your band, a mask that enhances audio, the unnatural origins of 3D, and the degrading quality of CD-Rs over time.
Today's special holiday edition of The 404 is dedicated to The Fifth Element, easily one of our favorite movies of all time. From the epic vision of the distant future to the colorful characters and of course the operatic techno scene, this movie retains its entertainment value after almost 13 years.
Steve Sphere Guttenberg appears on another psychedelic episode of The 404, discussing why The Nation's new album sounds so terrible, a $2,500 Sony headphone from the 80s, and the dangers of "remastered" albums.
