Episodes

Still Buffering: "SLC Punk!" (1998)

4/16/2021
What really is "punk?" What's the deal with posers? What CAN'T Matthew Lillard do? Why does Rileigh swallow so much gum? All this and more this week on Still Buffering! Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: "Calvin and Hobbes"

4/11/2021
It was Sydnee's favorite tiny newspaper cartoon, so now we're all taking a journey back in time to revisit our old friends: Calvin and Hobbes. Why does this cartoon mean so much to Syd? Why was it so good? Why does Sydnee's three year old think she's a guinea pig? Let's find out! Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: "Legally Blonde" (2001)

4/4/2021
It's the film that inspired a whole generation of girls to go to law school (Rileigh included), and we canNOT believe we haven't talked about it already. It's Legally Blonde! There's a whole musical, a whole sequel, and a whole three-quel that we are definitely not going to talk about, so let's get into it. What, like it's hard? Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: "Tank Girl"

3/28/2021
In this multi-media special episode, we're going back to the original Tank Girl, in both comic and movie forms! Tank Girl always meant a lot to Teylor, so now we all want to see what all the hype is about. *This episode was recorded before Cinnamon Toast Crunch shrimp guy was revealed to be a milkshake duck, but that big boat is still stuck that has not changed. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: "Radio Free Roscoe" (2003-2005)

3/20/2021
Well, we have finally done it. We have found the birth place of modern podcasting as we know it, so since Rileigh got to discuss the roots of her future career, we figured it was only right for the other siblings to get to do the same. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: "iCarly" (2007-2012)

3/12/2021
Lots of shows had an impact on how Rileigh thought teen life would be like when she was still a pre-tween, but apparently none were quite as impactful as iCarly, now that Rileigh is basically the podcast equivalent of Carly, right? A professional internet comedian as a teen with wacky older sibling(s)? That seems about right. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: Green Day

3/6/2021
They were around back in Sydnee and Teylor's day, and they have persevered all the way into the modern era, complete with their own jukebox Broadway musical, it's Green Day! What is it about their music that's just so darn listenable, and also how about that musical though?? Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: "Now and Then" (1996)

2/25/2021
Sydnee has often had questionable tastes in movies *cough* Grease 2 *cough*, and this week's choice, according to the movie critics, is no different. "Now and Then," was not an extremely popular flick back in the day, and there's a lot to unpack to figure out why. Also, is it the spinoff to "It?" Maybe? Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: "High School Musical" (2006)

2/12/2021
We're all in this one together, because we're traveling back to East High for the Spring Musical with all of the High School Musical gang! Rileigh was fully obsessed with this trio of films for years of her childhood, so it's another week of her forcing her siblings into watching/listening to all the things she could not stop talking about as a small teen. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: "Howl's Moving Castle" (2004)

2/4/2021
Since it's that kind of year so far and we all needed a nice, relaxing break into the realm of Studio Ghibli, Teylor has brought us Howl's Moving Castle! A new movie for both Sydnee and Rileigh, we're going all in on Howl's fashion influence on Teylor and how good the FOOD in this movie looks. Also, go check out Teylor's cosplay and cocktails video, featuring a Howl look! Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: "Weetzie Bat" (1989)

1/30/2021
In a first in Still Buffering 2.0 history, we all read a whole book! With no pictures! Just words! Sydnee was very into this book from her teendom, so we all took the plunge into the world of Weetzie Bat this week. Also, we learn how to play "Boat." Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: TikTok

1/22/2021
Well, we've finally done it. We have all succumb to the dance-filled, confusing, wildly popular app of choice among quarantined Gen Z'ers: TikTok. Rileigh has long been under its spell, and now she has managed to pull both of her siblings in with her, and all she wants to know is what side of TikTok they're on and also how many dances they know. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: StrongBad

1/17/2021
Disclaimer: Yes, we know we had an audio goof this week and Sydnee and Rileigh sound different than they usually do. We're sorry if it affects your listening, and we promise it won't happen again! Rileigh was unaware of the magical, glorious, internet world of StrongBad until Candlenights this year, so Teylor knew it was their duty to rectify this travesty. Now that Rileigh is significantly more cultured, let's talk about it! Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:49:33

Still Buffering: "Schitt's Creek" (2015-2020)

1/10/2021
Sydnee finally discovered the key to ending the year-long Groundhog Day situation we've all been in: we all must finally watch Schitt's Creek. So, we all three have done our part, and this is us convincing you to do the same for like 45 minutes. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: "evermore" - Taylor Swift (2020)

1/1/2021
This is truly the greatest gift Rileigh could have received in 2020: the chance to force her siblings to listen to not one, but two whole Taylor Swift albums and then talk about them with her. Also, Sydnee and Teylor were completely unaware of all the theories and canon surrounding Taylor and her music, so we HAD to get all up in that too. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:52:36

Still Buffering: The Grinch Off

12/26/2020
In a twist of Still Buffering tradition to deeply discuss one piece of media, we've watched all four iterations of the story of The Grinch, and we're making them battle it out to see which one is truly superior. One thing we know for sure, though, is the musical one with Matthew Morrison is DEFINITELY in last place. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" (1989)

12/18/2020
In the Smirl family, there are very few holiday traditions, but watching Christmas Vacation and knowing every single word is the most important of the ones we do have. But also, it's 2020, so we have too much time on our hands and it has us thinking (probably too hard) about all the deeper societal implications of the characters and their families so....let's get into THAT. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: The Princess Switch 2 Electric Switcharoo

12/12/2020
Sadly, there is no new installment of the Still Buffering classic Christmas tale, The Christmas Prince, this year. BUT! We have a twice as special episode this holiday season, because we're talking about not one, but TWO Princess Switch movies, starring not one, not two, but THREE characters played by Vanessa Hudgens. It's...a lot. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: "Animaniacs"

12/5/2020
2020 hasn't gifted us much, but it did bring us a reboot of one of Teylor's favorite childhood cartoons: Animaniacs! We watched some old classics and some new hits, and we're ready to talk about those crazy, um...dogs? Cats? Mice? Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: Jewel "Pieces of You" (1995)

11/26/2020
Well, Sydnee finally realized what she has done in bringing Jewel to the discussion table this week. Upon Rileigh's first-ever listen and Teylor's first re-listen in forever, the siblings dive right into all the angsty, earnest lyrics we love from Jewel, as well as all the songs and hits that don't exactly stand the test of time. Also, bonus secret track? Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas
