Episode 9 - Punk Rock and Pro Wrestling

This week we're back to normal.  We're talking about a great concert I went to featuring the Descendents, the Get Up Kids, and Braddock.  Then I talk about pro wrestling.  That's pretty much it!

Here's the player:

 And here are some photos of the stuff I talk about...

First the cover photo, so I can post it on Facebook a little better.

I wanted to post a video of it bobbling, but I couldn't get it to work right with the blog.  Use your imagination, I guess.

Same as the "cover" photo, but without the logo so you can see the shirt.
And this!

Episode 8 - Processing Las Vegas

This is a pretty low-key episode. I talk through my thoughts on the Las Vegas shooting. It's a more raw listen than usual. I talk about a couple of albums that helped me today; Aimee Mann's "Mental Illness" (which I realized during the upload I've already talked about on the show, but whatever) and the new album by Lowercase Noises, "The Swiss Illness." Mostly, I just needed to talk. Thought it might help me/others.

Here's the player:

And a larger photo of the cover, mostly so it'll show up on Facebook...

We'll get back to having fun next week (assuming I can talk after seeing the dentist, as explained in the show).

No New Episode This Week

I've got some health problems.  Tooth issues are giving me regular migraines.  (By "regular" I meant at least weekly.)  I was hit with one tonight, which was my only opportunity to record this week.  I won't be able to post an episode this week as a result.  Sorry about that, but I'll be back next week with fun stuff, assuming my dentist leaves me with enough teeth to do it.  :)

Thanks for your support.  Sorry to let you down this week.  I'll try not to let it happen again any time soon!

Episode 7 - FEATURING DAVE BRINK! - I Have No Idea Why I Thought Tim Curry Was in Spy Kids

This week's episode was a lot of fun for me.  I'm downright giggly throughout.  It's about an hour and twenty minutes of a conversation between myself and my brother Dave.  (Please check out Dave's music at this link.)  We talk about all kinds of music, movies, and so on.  Here's the player!

Index of main topics discussed:
  • 00:01 - Intro/Music
  • 01:30 - Meeting Dave and Intro Stuff
  • 03:50 - Review/Discussion of Living Colour's "Shade"
  • 14:24 - A Text from Dad turns into a Tribute to Bobby "The Brain" Heenan
  • 18:06 - Dave Tells Me About the Movie "IT"

  • 01:04:16 - Random Questions With Dave About Stuff He Likes (Favorite Albums, TV, Pro-Wrestling Memories, etc.)
No extra photos this week because it was so all-over-the-place.  And also I was too tired to mess with photos when I was getting ready to post this.  So there.  Hope you have fun!  Comment and stuff!

Episode 6 - In Which I Become Tom Waits

This week, I recorded early, so I could be sure I could do it at all.  At the time of recording/writing, I'm struggling against a cold that seems to want to take my voice away from me.  I'm raspy and don't sound normal at all.  So that got me thinking about Tom Waits.  And this podcast is pretty much just me giving you my picks for the top 5 Tom Waits albums, then talking about Neil Young and giving a personal message at the end.  Clocking in at right around 20 minutes, this is the shortest episode so far!  Enjoy!

(Next week, a conversation with my brother Dave. As a fun-fact, I also uploaded this on 9/11/17, although it's not getting posted until Thursday.  By the time the upload was complete around 10pm, my temperature was 100-degrees.)

Here's the player:

and here are a couple photos...

It's the thumbnail...only bigger!
