March 11th, 2015 Movie – Gigantic (A Tale Of Two Johns)

gigantic (a tale of two johns)

A little known fact, my first introduction to They Might Be Giants was not through my friend Paul. It was actually a few month’s earlier during a summer trip with my church’s youth group. However, I will say that Paul is probably the biggest fan of the band that I know. So when a documentary came out about this band, I knew that he would be one of the first to own it. What I did not expect was for him to get me a copy (it was either a birthday or Christmas present). So let’s go ahead and get to watching today’s movie, Gigantic (A Tale Of Two Johns). So this is a documentary about the band, They Might Be Giants, which primarily¬†consists of John Flansburgh and John Linnell. It talks about how the first met and became friends and then went on to form a musical duo. Showing footage from some of their earlier performances as well as talking about a variety of subjects from problems with record labels to how much influence each member has on the finished product, this really is a great DVD to have if you are a fan of the band.
