This week on Cult Friction!

2009. What a year its been folks! From gate crashing some major celebrity dos to winning/nominated for awards, from breaking records to meeting the weirdest people on the planet, it has been quite an eventful 12 months for all of us here at the CF team.

So in the time honoured fashion of the show we’ll be taking a retrospective of the goings on of MMIX with our run down of all things cool about 2009 as well as looking at some of the things we hope to happen over the next decade (i.e. flying cars/hoverboards/manned landing on Mars etc)

Also we will be having special guests from the UKULELE SOCIETY OF GOLDSMITHS COLLEGE stopping by for a chat and giving us the occasional musical interlude with their small instruments of musical joy!

We’ll also be giving you our TOP 10 Films and Games of the Year! More bickering and debate to flow like the alcohol through our nerdy veins.

And what programme would be complete without Nerd News, unspun, under researched nonsense from the internet and beyond!

So thats this Monday at 3pm on WiredRadio.co.uk; that’s a streaming webcast for you guys out of the loop.

So all that remains for myself and the gang to wish you happy holidays and bright and prosperous New Year!

From Mark, George, Tom, Hayleigh, Paul and Ruari (who is stuck up north but is a member for life!)

Here’s what some lovely people had to say about Cult Friction!

“Amazing Show, Very professional with fantastic guests and a great blog to boot.”

“Mark and his team are undeniably professional. Mark and the gang go out of their way to go to press screenings and award shows as well as producing interesting documentary features. They are so much more than a group of people talking on the radio. They use their experiences and inputs to review different DVDs, films and games. Long live Geeks and Nerds!”

“Becasue not only are the topics well researched by the witty presenters who bounce off each other nicely; its the only radio show that meets my audio needs entirely. CULT FRICTION RULES!”

“Nerd-tastic Show!”

“A radio show that represents a section of Goldsmiths rarley seen. Excellent coverage of presigious events such as the BAFTA Video Game Awards and the Royal Television Society Awards.”

“Purley because there is a perfect balance of personalities on the show who work well together. The content is interesting and well researched. Ace!”

“Amazing celebs and interviews. All round slickest show on Wired!”

TUNE IN @ http://wiredradio.co.uk at 3pm THURSDAY 14th MAY 2009

Who you gonna call?*

CF is back for yet another week of fun and mayhem and this week we have a special treat in store!

Yes Cult Friction attended VIDEOPIA on Tuesday night at the Notting Hill Arts Club. What’s Videopia I hear you ask? Well ever see that film Be Kind Rewind? No? Well did you ever see the trailer? Aye, well its like that but they do it LIVE! This month the 1984 classic GHOSTBUSTERS was ‘sweded’ live before our very eyes and we even took part in it. 

Also on Cult Friction this week ….

We PREVIEW the NEW TERMINATOR FILM. This is the one where Chritian Bale went mad on set so if he cares about it so much then it must be good. Right? We hope so too!

And in keeping with the theme of dodgy special effects Cult Friction counts down the TOP 10 BEST SPECIAL EFFECTS MOMENTS IN THE HISTORY OF CINEMA EVER. We stir up debate as we define those things that made you spill your popcorn so as always you can send us any suggestions to our handy board here.

And as always NERD NEWS, all the news that means so little to so many.

Cross your fingers for us on Thursday night as we head to the Goldsmiths Student Awards event and hopefully pick up the prize for best show of the year. Thanks a million for all who voted for us to get on the shortlist. Very cool indeed.

And if thats not all you can catch Cult Friction spinning the decks at the NEW CROSS INN afterwards till 2am with some choice tunes. Phew thats going to be a busy night.

So as always you can check out all the latest features on the all mighty Blog here athttps://cultfriction.wordpress.com.

And get all up to date with proceedings with us on Twitter @ http://twitter.com/cultfriction.
