Episodes

Still Buffering: "Revolutionary Girl Utena"

6/20/2021
Happy Pride! We love to see diversity and representation in our media, and Teylor delivered this week with one of their long-time favorite anime. Also there are cars that are people and also symbols? Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:57:48

Still Buffering: "Beetlejuice" (1988)

6/13/2021
It's everyone's favorite demon to love to hate, the inspiration for one of the coolest and spookiest musicals in recent history, and a real creepy old guy, it's Beetlejuice! Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:53:25

Still Buffering: "SOUR" - Olivia Rodrigo (2021)

6/6/2021
It's all the teens are listening to right now, and also all the millennials and 20-somethings and adults are listening to right now, apparently. Olivia Rodrigo got her heart broken so she broke the internet and the world with a near perfect debut album, and we are HERE FOR IT. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: "But I'm a Cheerleader" (1999)

5/27/2021
We will admit, the description of the movie's plot doesn't make it seem like the most fun watch, but we promise it's worth it. Teylor introduced us all this week to a 90s cult classic, and as three queer people, we had to get up in there. Come join us at New Directions! Or is it True Directions? Which one's from Glee? Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?"

5/22/2021
We all know Sydnee was a pretty big nerd back in the day (and still now, if we're being honest) but there is maybe no better example of her nerdy nature in her youth than her love for educational video games. None of us are great at geography, but we all still think that Carmen Sandiego game show sounds real fun, don't you? Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: The Circle 2021

5/14/2021
It's everyone's favorite time of year: MaxFunDrive AND Circle season! Our ultimate favorite reality show on Netflix all about social media and catfish and...jokers? That twist didn't really make sense, we'll admit. Also did this episode turn into a musical episode? We aren't sure, you'll have to listen and tell us. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Still Buffering: Tegan and Sara

5/7/2021
It's the mooost wonderful time of the year, it's MaxFunDrive! To kick off this momentous occasion, we're exploring Teylor's secret musical obsession from their teendom: Tegan and Sarah! Also, someone make Rileigh stop with her MaxFunDrive theme song...please. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:56:02

Still Buffering: "Space Ghost Coast to Coast"

5/2/2021
It brought a young Sydnee and Justin together all those years ago, and now it's bringing us all together this week, it's Space Ghost! It's perhaps the original and in the top-tier of cartoons for grown ups, so that's, like, perfect for us. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:59:18

Still Buffering: "Fearless (Taylor's Version)"

4/22/2021
Welcome back to your favorite Taylor Swift fancast in which Rileigh forces her siblings to listen to yet another Taylor Swift album, slowly pushing them into the unstoppable force that is the Swiftie fandom. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

Duration:00:55:56

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

Duration:00:55:40

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

Duration:00:52:08

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

Duration:00:58:40

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

Duration:00:55:59

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

Duration:00:58:55

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

Duration:00:58:57

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

Duration:00:58:23

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

Duration:00:52:40

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

Duration:00:58:39

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

Duration:00:51:06

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
