Take a trip through Alice's nightmares, From the hippie days to the stadium glitz, the boozy ballad era and the strange cocaine years, each album is reviewed fairly, song by song, with clever lyric pointings out, as well as noting Alice's apathetic offerings during his burn out phases. Finishing listening to the DaDa review now. On to the heavy metal muscled comeback! These guys know Alice.

Tangent Tally: 2

This week Mike and I are joined by our long time friend, Allison Victoria-Wolfe.  We Twitter-met when Swamp Shark aired and Allison has been kind enough to join us several times on various podcasts.  She is always amazingly fun to chat with.  Since last we met, ALLISON WON SEASON 15 OF WORST COOKS IN AMERICA!

We talk a lot about that, Mike and Allison exchange cooking tips, and Allison bravely addresses her anti-cheese stance as well as “the pepper flake incident”.

We also get to hear a little bit about a project Allison has in pre-production!

This week we recap the Staged Killer (available on Netflix) live tweet and are joined by Nikki Bilderback and Gerald Webb.

This is a very fun conversation and you really should listen.  You’ll get some extremely cool insights into the making of Staged Killer and Mike (as usual) lies a lot.

This week Mike and I do a recommendation show.  We are using OBS and standard Google Hangouts to record now, and I clearly I have some learning to do.  I THOUGHT I was muting my mic via the Hangout, but clearly that was not the case.  So this episode you will be treated to ice clanking in my drink and nearly omnipresent labored nose breathing.  Hopefully for the last time.  Sorry!!

Rank #5: Squat Cobbler 89: Staged Killer Live Tweet

Podcast cover
Read more

Our good friend, Gerald Webb, has a new movie being released on Netflix June 25 called “Staged Killer” (trailer) – directed by Christopher Ray.

Gerald, understanding the power of the Squat Cobbler Bump, asked if we would help coordinate a live tweet of the movie with the Snarkalec gang and others.

Of course we would!

So, on Saturday June 29 at 9PM Eastern, 8pm Central, 6PM Pacific we will be live tweeting this and Gerald will join us along with some members of the cast!

Here is what you need to participate:

  1. Netflix access
  2. A Twitter account
  3. An understanding of time zones

On the 29th I’ll share where to pause the movie to synchronize our start and will do the old 2, 2, 1, GO!

To help with communication, please tweet me at @kellythul on Twitter with something along the lines of “#Staged Killer – I’m in!” and I’ll add to to the Twitter list I have set up for this live Tweet.

Reminder, Rebekah Kennedy likes me more than Mike.

As always, I see opportunity and good and Dr. Mike see incarceration and fines.

TANGENT TALLY: 2

This week Dr. Mike and I discuss a former hero of mine who had some very unpleasant things to say recently… Pete Townshend.  Pete shared in a Rolling Stone article that he was glad Keith Moon and John Entwistle were dead and that he was basically the only thing good about The Who.  He also managed to work in the The Who aren’t a band anymore, in an interview to PROMOTE The Who’s upcoming new release.

Nice work Pete.

Clearly Pete knew we were coming after him and he has tried to back-peddle some, passing his words off as “I was being ironic in my own English way“.

On a happier note, Dr. Mike and I officially declared war on Hanson,  Squat Cobbler is coming for ya boys.

“I got a Gibson without a case, but I can’t get that even tanned look on my face”

Tangent Tally: 6.5

This week Mike and I review the Who’s “Quadrophenia”. This is an outstanding album and we both marvel at the drumming of a certain Mr. Keith Moon.

I apologize that I made several unforced errors in the review.  I goofed up on what songs were on what side, confused the band member themes, and I managed to explain the song structure of “Helpless Dancer” while we were discussing “Dirty Jobs”.  In my defense, I was tired and still in recovery from the Dwarves review

Rank #16: Squat Cobbler 74: Space Issues

Podcast cover
Read more

This week Mike and Kelly set a record for tangents prior to the recommendations.  Sorry.

Mike’s RecommendationTechnology Connections YouTube Channel

This channel is a treasure trove on all sorts of technology tidbits ranging from closed captioning, LEDs, DVD-RAM, Laserdiscs,etc…

Mike specifically mentioned the segment on the history of cassette tapes as a “must listen”

Kelly’s Recommendation – Walking Dead Our World app

Great game play, augmented reality, and zombies (!) in the Pokemon Go meets the Walking Dead app.  Available on Android and iOS, this joint effort between Google Maps and AMC is extremely fun to play.  Game play is intuitive, but if you want to take it to the next level, Reddit has all the information you would ever need.  The app is challenging Pokemon Go as Kelly’s go to “walk in and out of work” entertainment.

As mentioned in the podcast, Kelly recommended Pokemon Go on Nurture and Support 120 (July 2016). In a clear violation of recommendation protocol, Mike recommended Pokemon Go on Squat Cobbler 8 (August 2016).

Please remember, if Mike recommends The Walking Dead Our World at a later date, we all need to call him out and declare “CHICANERY! CHICANERY!”

Social Media Recommendations

Kelly: @ChrisEvans – Captain America is a must follow as we approach Avenger’s Endgame… plus Mr. Evans is a stand up guy

Mike: Kelly’s YouTube channel – home of Nurture and Support, Squat Cobbler, A Saul and Battery, and other silliness.

Rank #17: Squat Cobbler 73: Cosplay and Retro Gaming

Podcast cover
Read more

This week you’ll get a great YouTube channel recommendation and a fun retro gaming option.  In addition to the recommendations, Mike and Kelly wander around such topics as YouTube comments, monetization, the Amiga 2000, BASIC, and The Killing Joke.

Kelly’s Recommendation

Orvix Cosplay – This is an awesome YouTube channel run by an equally awesome person.  It has cosplay talk, how-to videos, vlogs from cons and Disneyland… what’s not to love?

Here is the super cool Killing Joke shirt project Kelly mentioned


Mike’s Recommendation

The C64 Mini – Aside from a keyboard unable to cope with Mike’s large man hands, this is a pretty amazing retro gaming option – at a great price.  Not only can you install additional games to the system, it comes fully operational for you to code and run BASIC programs.

Here is the difference between DO WHILE and DO UNTIL.  Kelly still doesn’t grasp it.

Social Media Recommendations

Kelly – Orvix Cosplay’s Instagram

Mike – Mike recommended @the64mini on Twitter, but that account doesn’t exist.  So enjoy the keyboard size rants on the hashtag

Random Chatter Scrapbook

Here is Kelly’s “Night King of Ren” cosplay…

The game Kelly cheated at all the time on the Amiga was called “Wings”…

Rank #19: Squat Cobbler 67: Billion Dollar Babies – Battle Axe (album review)

Podcast cover
Read more

“It’s bigger than King Kong”

Thanks to a suggestion from our listener Mick, this week Mike and Kelly discuss Battle Axe by Billion Dollar Babies.  When the original Alice Cooper group went there separate ways, three members of the band formed Billion Dollar Babies.  The concept for Battle Axe was to be the follow up for the the original group’s final collaboration, “Muscle of Love“.

While there are some moments, listening to this album (and Alice’s “Goes to Hell” and “Lace and Whiskey” outings that were also released around this time) point out how amazing the original group’s mixture of talent was.

It was a tough go for Billion Dollar Babies and there is little on the Internet about them.  Here is one of the best histories on the band and a few (rare) pics

Also, Kelly mentioned the somewhat shady live album of Battle Axe…
