Feb 23, 2023

Facts:  Bassists are the most romantic people in the world. 

When it comes to cinema, they are the most qualified people in the world to talk about the art of film. 

In this episode of Film Basics with Bassists That Love Film, Ross (Rigs of Dad, Burial Waves, Cogents, Before Sunset, True Romance, Meet the Parents) is is joined by his co-host/Cyrano DeBasserac Ian Miller (Kowloon Walled City, Strangelight, Notting Hill, Pretty Woman, and Love Actually) to talk about love stories and romance in film.  Warning: we are better than everyone when it comes to talking about this sorta thing.  

Rad things:

Ross will be in Seattle this weekend for the Botch reunion shows.  Let's party.

Speaking of romance: you can pre-oreder and support THE book of all books for your sweetheart or yourself by going to or visiting Jeff in person Saturday 3/4 at Lost Origins Gallery in Mount Pleasant in DC.

Ian has some MUST LISTEN TO MUSIC over at the Interesting Times Gang Bandcamp Page.
