Be sure to check out the Oculus Quest 2 and the Alien III audiobook

Nurture & Support returns 🙂

Mel and I hope to get back to at least a monthly update for the podcast.   Here is one in a row…

Kelly’s recommendation: Oculus Quest 2

After many failed attempts, I finally have a VR device I love.  No computer required, easy set up, and amazing VR experiences.  Definitely worth a look (and once you get it, get the Vader Immortal series!) 

 

 

Mel’s recommendation: Alien III audiobook

Mel LOVES the Alien series.  Well, except for Alien 3 movie, which she pretty much hates… UNTIL she came across an alternative script by William Gibson available on Audible.  It runs just over 2 hours and features some of the original cast including Michael Biehn and Lance Henriksen!

Dave LaGreca joins us to talk about our rankings of Alice Cooper albums – it was a great time! (Squat Cobbler)

The most awesome Dave LaGreca joins Dr. Mike and I to compare our rankings of Alice Cooper’s albums. We agree sometimes. We disagree sometimes. Mike lies many times. This was a ridiculously fun show with three major Alice Cooper fans. Definitely worth checking out! Special thanks to Dave for joining us. He was an outstanding guest and we hope to have him back on the show often.

Chest armor and dresses (Squat Cobbler 165)

WARNING: Several Star Wars spoilers (mostly the Clone Wars series)

In this “Squat on the issues” episode Mike and I discuss Bo-Katan’s armor, The Mandalorian, and men in dresses.

Sorry this one is as timely as we originally planned, but Mike had a few “moments” in this episode that I had to creatively edit. Took awhile 🙂

Kelly’s recommendation: The Holiday Movies That Made Us

Available on Netflix, with episodes on Elf and The Nightmare Before Christmas, this installation of the “…that made us” series is full of interesting backstories, challenges and information on these movies.  If you are a fan of them already, you love them more. 

If you weren’t a fan, you just might warm up to them some.

Awesome scary podcast – The Shadow Diaries (Nurture & Support {Cobbler} 186)

This week in sort of a Nurture and Support and Squat Cobbler combo, we visit with Gerald Webb about the amazing podcast “The Shadow Diaries” brought to you by the good folks at Studio71 and Snarled Entertainment.

This podcast stars Madelaine Petsch & Kara Hayward and around episode 4, our favorite cantankerous, ugly shirt wearing friend Gerald Webb shows up.

In a few weeks the season finale will be published and we plan to do a “tweet sync” where we all start the podcast off of the Snarled YouTube channel playlist at the same time and tweet along with it with Gerald and maybe some surprise guests joining in.

Jump on this, it would be awesome to have a big group for the live tweet.  In addition to YouTube, you can find The Shadow Diaries on nearly all podcast platforms.

It’s Gerald Webb time! (well on Wednesday the 11th)

Special announcement to Snarkalecs and non-Snarkalecs!

Our good friend Gerald Webb will be making his first appearance on a very cool podcast called The Shadow Diaries starring Madelaine Petsch & Kara Hayward this Wednesday (November 11).

Similar to what we did with Gerald’s awesome STACKS, he has made himself available for a “watch party”.  I guess “listen party” is more appropriate given this is a podcast.   So, at 9pm EASTERN on November 11, we’ll have either a Zoom call or Hangout, listen to the episode (they usually run 20-30 minutes), and then we’ll chat with Gerald.

WARNING: I will be hosting this along with Mike Bilinski (dun dun dun).

Really hope we can get a good number of us together.  Sorry for the short notice, but there is actual homework for you on this.  So, if you want to attend:

  1. Let me know you want to participate (either via Twitter @kellythul or email me at kelly.thul@gmail.com).
  2. Let me know if you prefer Zoom or a Google Hangout for the online meeting. Also, I’ll need an email to send the invite to
  3. We will be listening to episode 4, so you might want to get through episodes 1-3 before Wednesday.  It is available on nearly all the podcast platforms and here on YouTube.

Ping me if you have any questions!

Recommendations: The Boys and Art With Flo (Nurture & Support 185)

Special treat around the 18:30 mark 🙂

Kelly’s recommendation –  The Boys

This Amazon show is based on the graphic novels of the same name by Garth Ennis. While there are many tweaks, it does effectively bring forward the dark, funny, dark, strange world of the graphic novel.  If you have problems with profanity.. not your show. If you have problems with VERY dark situations… not your show.  The cast and writing are spectacular!

 

 

 

Mel’s recommendation –  Art With Flo

Just like Kelly, Mel remains on the lookout for a graphic art Sherpa.  Flo seems to be the ticket for her.  Flo provides easy to follow, concise guidance on using Procreate.  Flo doesn’t assume you have the highest end equipment, in fact Mel was able to keep up with her vintage iPad Air and generation 1 Apple Pencil.   As promised, here is Mel’s first project.   Nice job!!
