Content, Content, Content

May 29, 2020

Hello. Thought you might like another teeny update.

Piece of news #1: All complete episodes that we have in our archive have been uploaded and are now publicly available via Spotify, iTunes (is it still called that?), Stitcher, Anchor, RSS feed and probably some sort of verbose, English-speaking carrier pigeon.

At time of writing, we are unfortunately still missing 25 episodes and believe us, we’ve looked through a lot of hard drives! The full list is here and, as ever, we’d be very grateful if you could help us track these down.

Piece of news #2: We’ve finally edited and released episode 135: No Holds Barred! This was originally recorded in January 2017, so we can only apologise for the ridiculous amount of time that has elapsed and hope our references aren’t too outdated.

We hope you’re all doing well and if we think of anything else fun we can do, we’ll let you know.

Look after yourselves,

Kieran & Tom

Episode 135 – No Holds Barred

May 26, 2020

Have You Seen..? The question to start all movie discussions.

Better late than never! Only three years after it was originally supposed to be released, revel in the sweaty, muscle-bound glory of Hulk Hogan’s debut as a leading man: No Holds Barred!

PLUS: a smell of chocolate, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Demolition, wrestling nerdery, axe hammers, Jesse Ventura’s loud hair, pot plants, giant men and their small furniture, the world’s worst limo driver, baby oil, the inner workings of Terry Bollea and Vince McMahon’s minds, Hulk Hogan’s mastery of the French language and his “sexy” face, ratings, poor names for combat sports events, Stan Hansen, “Klondyke Raymond”, “Brock Jizzer”, Frank Welker, grunting sounds, Street Fighter, a fundamental misunderstanding of how the television industry works, a random clown, laughing security cameras, Every Which Way But Loose, the cure for paralysis, Pink Floyd, Knight Rider and picking up women… by the face.

An Update

April 30, 2020

Hello, friends from the internet.

How’s everybody doing? Keeping healthy and watching lots of movies we hope.

We just thought we’d send out a little update in the hope that we might provide a small amount of entertainment during the neverending year of April 2020.

We’ve been hard at work on the archive, getting it back online and getting it to your ears. To that end, episodes 1 – 89 (with a few gaps) are now available once more on iTunes, Spotify, Anchor and Stitcher Radio. If you’re the type of person that likes manually adding RSS links to things, this one’s for you, buddy!

We’ve re-edited and remastered some of the episodes for which we don’t have the original completed MP3’s. You’ll hear a little announcement at the start of each of those. They’re not intended to be faithful recreations, more how we would put these shows together if they’d been recorded today.

Unfortunately, we are still missing the following episodes:-

  • 25 (Merantau/Josie and The Pussycats)
  • 27 (True Grit (Coen Bros. version)/Touch of Evil)
  • 64 (A Royal Affair)
  • 66 (Paranorman)
  • 68 (The Queen of Versailles)
  • 80 (Alien/Time After Time)
  • 81 (The Final Countdown/The Elephant Man)
  • 86 (Tower Block)
  • 87 (Glengarry Glen Ross)
  • 90 (Muscle Shoals/Sound City/Searching For Sugar Man
  • 91 (Archer/Garth Merengi’s Darkplace)
  • 92 (Punisher: War Zone/#DIRTYLAUNDRY/Blind Fury)
  • 93 (The Colditz Story/The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists!)
  • 94 (The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires/War of the Robots)
  • 95 (Order No.027/Pulgasari)
  • 96 (Half Past Dead/Miami Connection)
  • 97 (Jolly Life(Neseli Hayat))
  • 98 (Blackmail/The General/The Artist)
  • 99 (Transformers: Dark of the Moon/Robot & Frank/Transformers: Age of Extinction)
  • 101 (Juan of the Dead/Rush)
  • 102 (The Raid 2)
  • 103 (Kon-Tiki/The Hole)
  • 104 (Duel/Premium Rush)
  • 105 (Koyaanisqatsi/Versus)
  • 106 (Raiders of the Lost Ark (B&W Soderbergh version))

We’d love to make a complete collection available to everyone, so if you happen to have any of these on your hard drive, please get in contact on Twitter (@hyspodcast) or email hyspodcast@gmail.com.

Look after youselves and speak soon maybe,

Kieran & Tom

>tap tap< Is this thing on?

April 10, 2020

Hello,

Hope you’re all well and keeping safe during this very odd time

It seems our zombie hands caused a little ripple in the Force, so here’s what’s going on…

Our previously reliable podcast hosting service appears to have dropped off the face of the Earth, so we’re trying to get the full HYS archive back online and available. At 135 episodes, with each one needing to be processed individually to some extent, that’s a bit of a time consuming task.

At time of writing, episodes 1 – 50 are available via Spotify, Stitcher and Anchor. We’re still waiting for iTunes and other services that use the iTunes library index (Overcast etc.) to play catch-up because Apple.

If we’re missing any major platforms, let us know, but everybody should be able to get their HYS fix from one of the above. If we remember the TuneIn Radio login, it’ll go back on there too.

To complete this process however, we’d like to ask for your help…

It turns out that we’re missing the following episodes from our backup:-

– 24 (Almost Famous: Director’s Cut & Fantastic Four (Corman version))
– 25 (Merantau & Josie and The Pussycats)
– 27 (True Grit (Coen Bros. version) & Touch of Evil)
– 62 (Transmorphers & The Ultimate Weapon)
– 64 (A Royal Affair)
– 66 (Paranorman)
– 68 (The Queen of Versailles)
– 80 (Alien & Time After Time)
– 81 (Upstream Color & Blackfish)
– 86 – 99
– 101 – 106
– 116 (Snowpiercer)

As you can see, that’s a quite a few gaps and we would love to fill them. For some of them, we have the original recordings but not the audio software project files that stick those recordings together. We could re-edit them, but there’s no guarantee they’d end up the same as the originally released episodes. That’s where you come in, dear friends.

If you downloaded any of these episodes, please get in touch here, on Twitter (@hyspodcast) or email hyspodcast@gmail.com. Eternal gratitude awaits.

Finally, we’re in the process of putting together the recorded-but-unreleased episode 135. It’s something that slipped through the net at a time when we were both incredibly busy, but being told to stay off the streets for the good of the country gives a fella a little extra downtime, y’know? So, when we’ve reuploaded everything we have, episode 135 will magically appear at the end of the feed.

That’s all for now.

Stay safe and watch movies,

Kieran & Tom
