S04.E06: Vanjealousy

This week, we welcome Josh, Tripp, and Erica to the show for trivia about dual performances and ambient electronica: a classic pairing of topics if there ever was one. We're seeing double in round one, when we talk movies and TV where one actor played multiple roles. After that, we welcome special guest Vangelis, the Academy Award-winning electronic composer to the show. He has reworked other Oscar-winning scores into his signature style, providing the basis for the today's round two. And as always, we close out with a rousing lightning round.

🪲 The din of the magicicada cassinii

👸🏽 "Nefertiri" from The Mummy Returns should not be confused with "Nefertari" from the Bible, Moses movies, and history or the historical "Nefertiti," for that matter.

🎙 There does not appear to be any videos of Brian Austin Green and Robin Thicke's rap duo online, but there are pictures, and they are wonderful.

💍 In Round two, we included a Vangelisized version of Howard Shore's score to the Lord of the Rings trilogy. While we said the year of the movie for the answer was 2003, meaning the answer was The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. We will note that the musical motif in our example also appears in Howard Shore's The Lord of the Rings: the Fellowship of the Ring. But because we specified the year 2003, the correct answer is Return of the King.

🤷‍♀️ The "Asking for A Friend" Scorebreak: Asking for a friend -- will you be my friend?

🎭 It's time for the "time that they brought out past acting winners to make appreciative speeches about each of that year's acting nominees at the Oscars" scorebreak. The time that they brought out past acting winners to make appreciative speeches about each of that year's acting nominees at the Oscars: can we do that again?
