Episodes

Still Buffering: "Goldeneye 007"

5/22/2022
It was the multiplayer video game experience that defined the younger years of the older Smirl siblings, complete with such classic bits as DK mode and slappers only: it's Goldeneye! (Those GRAPHICS though...) CW: This video game is a first person shooter game, meaning there is brief mention of video game violence/guns. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: "One Day" (2011)

5/15/2022
Rileigh felt a need to introduce her siblings to a movie she watched incessantly with friends in high school, neglecting to remember just how ridiculously sad it is, so she's sorry about that. Also, discussion on weird British party games takes up a good amount of this episode, so buckle in. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: "The Last Unicorn" (1982)

5/9/2022
We've done it, we've found and discovered and dissected the meaning of the 80s cartoon movie: "The Last Unicorn." It's not all rainbows and unicorns, but it IS full of mystical scenes and musical numbers. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:48:40

Still Buffering: "Mermaids" (1990)

5/2/2022
Even though Sydnee brought this one to the table, it's a movie that the Smirl siblings have long associated with their mom, and there are a lot of reasons why. So, to celebrate only one week until Mother's Day AND MaxFunDrive, let's talk about Cher! Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:50:32

Still Buffering: "Into the Woods"

4/24/2022
It's that time of year for summer theatre again for Rileigh, so why not take some time to talk about this year's musical? We're going into the woods and out of the woods and all over the woods for a deeper look at this Sondheim classic, join us, won't you? Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:49:12

Still Buffering: Against Me! - "Transgender Dysphoria Blues"

4/17/2022
Teylor is always introducing their sisters to cool, meaningful, and just overall really good stuff from their life, and this week is certainly no different. This album was new to Sydnee and Rileigh, while packing a whole lot of meaning for our middle sibling, so come check it out with us! Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:49:40

Still Buffering: "Dogma" (1999)

4/10/2022
It's honestly remarkable that we haven't talked about Kevin Smith movies yet, so we had to start with Sydnee's all-time favorite out of them all. Plus, little kid fight club. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:50:42

Still Buffering: Katy Perry

4/3/2022
She was making some of the world's most popular pop music of the early 2010s, when Rileigh was probably too young to be listening to some of it, but that didn't stop her from becoming one of her biggest fans; it's Katy Perry! She had some huge pop hits, and some big spinning peppermints on her bras, she was everything Rileigh wanted to be, obviously. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:48:42

Still Buffering: "Perfect Blue" (1997)

3/27/2022
As usual, Teylor has introduced their siblings to a really great anime they had never heard of before, and this time it's a spoooky one! Well, more so unsettling and thrilling than spook, but great nonetheless. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:49:49

Still Buffering: "No Doubt"

3/21/2022
Rileigh legitimately had no clue that Gwen Stefani was in a band before she went solo...like really no idea. So obviously her siblings had to rectify this massive gap in her late 90s and early 2000s education. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:51:11

Still Buffering: "(500) Days of Summer" (2009)

3/13/2022
We all know that Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon Levitt are eternally quirky-cute and boyish-cute, respectively, so we simply must take a look back at one of Rileigh's first favorite non-love story love stories. Because who DOESN'T love The Smiths and want to fall in love with a random guy from your greeting card company? Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:46:21

Still Buffering: "Jack*ss"

3/7/2022
Well, we did it, we FINALLY said a bad word on this show. Actually a lot of times, because we're talking about Jackass! It's time to dive in and answer all the important questions, like would you rather have to drink something gross or get launched into a lake? Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:44:34

Still Buffering: "Can't Hardly Wait" (1998)

2/27/2022
It's about time we dove into the classic "giant party at the end of senior year" movie genre, and what better starting point than Can't Hardly Wait? It's even got all the teen stereotypes that really aren't all that accurate, including our favorite, Cynical Velma. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:52:39

Still Buffering: "Camp Rock" (2008)

2/20/2022
Disney Channel original movie musicals defined Rileigh's childhood, and almost none more so than Camp Rock. Starring the Jonas Brothers, of course, and Demi Lovato, this movie was the pinnacle of youth for a young Rilo who wanted to attend the real Camp Rock more than anything. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:49:55

Still Buffering: My Chemical Romance

2/6/2022
So many of the things that Sydnee and Teylor loved most in the past have made resurgences among the cool new teen generations, and My Chemical Romance is one of the biggest! Also, they did MCR song on Glee?? How was Rileigh unaware of this??? Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:51:20

Still Buffering: "My Girl"

1/30/2022
Well, we unexpectedly had to take a whole week off and all we have to offer you upon our return is an episode about quite possibly one of the saddest movies of all time. Everyone say, "Thank you Sydnee" for making us all have to relive the most tragic movie scene involving bees. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:45:31

Still Buffering: "La La Land"

1/16/2022
It was the musical, colorful sensation of the mid-2010s, and it's one of our littlest sib's favorite movies of all time: it's La La Land! Time to go full jazz talk, eventually some Taylor Swift talk because when do we not, and definitely Ryan Gosling piano talk. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:50:31

Still Buffering: "Akira" (1988)

1/9/2022
It's our first anime of the year, complete with flesh blobs and motorcycle superpowers! It's Akira! Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:50:22

Still Buffering: Kelly Clarkson

1/3/2022
To round out this year of Still Buffering, our siblings have brought you a whole episode dedicated to an artist that we all really didn't know Sydnee loved that much: Kelly Clarkson! She's maybe the only person that could make a half breakup/half Christmas album that works, and we need to discuss it. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:47:05

Still Buffering: "The Princess Switch 3" (2021)

12/26/2021
Well...tis the season to be jolly and also to watch some extremely questionable Netflix original Christmas movies. It's become a tradition here on Still Buffering to spend some time each holiday season with Netflix's newest offerings, and this year we've been gifted with The Princess Switch 3: They Switched Again starring Vanessa Hudgens, Vanessa Hudgens, and Vanessa Hudgens. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas
