Episode 28: Christmocalypse Now

Greetings Dear Listener,

The Christmas season has its boot firmly about our necks with no chance of relenting until well after Boxing Day.  And even then it never truly lets go.

This time around, the program is intended to lighten the mood and add a bit of humor given the circumstances of last week.

If this show is still around next year, I have no idea what I'll do.  I used every Christmas song that I've got.  Maybe I'll go with the ultimate Slayer mix tape.

If anyone out there is a fan of Batman and/or Kevin Smith (the guy that did Clerks), type "Fat Man on Batman" into your googler.  There are several episodes of a podcast that is quite funny.  The episodes are streaming or for free download.  You'll be able to hear a fat man tear up over various scenes in the history of Batman.

In the near future, there will be debates over violence and our culture.  Something tells me the point will still be missed.

Thanks for listening.

Episode 27: This House Is A Rockin' So Don't Come A Knockin'

Greetings Dear Listener,

My apologies for the broadcast being a few days late.  

I've been decking the halls and preparing for the coming onslaught that is the holiday season.

I've been wearing my Christmas helmet when going out of doors so I should be safe.

The recent venture to the record store for the Black Friday festivities was extremely fruitful.

The Nuggets compilation of 60's and 70's garage rock has been repressed on vinyl along with the first Thin Lizzy record.

The new Bob Mould record, Silver Age, was a pleasant surprise for the ears.

The recent Tenacious D release certainly contains a few laughs and has a rather humorous cover.

There will be plenty of new music in the episodes to come.  At least it'll be new to me.

Until next time.

Thanks for listening.
