on our latest hotbox session, the one and only gita jackson (@ xoxogossipgita) of waypoint/vice stops by for a wide-ranging, free-flowing deep dive into that modern media tendency known as PRESTIGE. from the sopranos to the last of us, we go full Cinematic Mode as we explore the aesthetic, thematic, and referential techniques of pop entertainment that desperately wants you to take it seriously. topics include: how premium cable dramas like the walking dead & breaking bad paved the way for game storytelling techniques over the last decade, why 50 cent: blood on the sand is better than the last of us, the no-homo-eroticism of hideo kojima, & the plague of #OnePerfectShot culture. in our Unboxing section, gita takes a stab at dark souls, nadine goes all in on AEW, & seth treads dark waters. so roll up One Perfect Blunt and tune in.
