N&S – Ep 149 – Action Figures, Weirdos, and Twitter Greatness

Mel finally watched something on Netflix and Kelly continued his Netflix documentary mastery.

 

Mel’s Rec:

 

Netflix: The End of the F***king World

  • An awesomely wonderful dark comedy that aired in the UK originally.
  • It’s available internationally on Netflix
  • Just watch the trailer.
  • It does have some trigger issues you might want to be aware of: animal violence, attempted rape, and lots of swearing.

 

 

Kelly’s Rec:

 

Netflix Documentary: The Toys That Made Us

  • Currently has 4 episodes covering Star Wars, Barbie, He-Man, and G.I. Joe toys
  • Find out the stories behind some of our most beloved toys.
  • Did you know that He-Man was a toy before he was a cartoon?

 

Social Media Corner:

Kelly: Corin Nemec: @imcorinnemec on the ol’ twitter.  If you listen to our show, we don’t need to tell you who this man is.

 

** Mr. Nemec WAS recommended before, way back in Episode 96 in 2015!

YouTube hates Kelly. Mel likes a clown.

 

Kelly’s Recc:

App: MP3 Skype Recorder

  • a free app that records Skype calls on Windows OS, because sometimes you just need to.
  • Very useful when YouTube and Google Hangouts hate you.
  • There’s a Pro version for businesses if you need a little more.

 

 

 

Mel’s Recc:

Youtube Channel: Puddles Pity Party

  • Yes, he’s a clown. Yes, he’s that clown that was on America’s Got Talent. Yes, Mel is scared of clowns.
  • Puddle’s sings beautifully and you will love him. I make no guarantees that he isn’t going to turn on us at any moment though.
  • You’ve been warned.

Squat Cobbler 48: Alice Cooper – Welcome 2 My Nightmare (review)

“And in the totally fiery pit of boiling death… the lawyers, pimps and mimes”

This week we review Alice Cooper’s 26th album “Welcome 2 My Nightmare”, a sequel to “Welcome To My Nightmare”.  Bob Ezrin returns, the original Alice Cooper group returns (sorta), Ke$ha, Vince Gill, and many other pop in as well.   We both like this album, but expectations were high going in – and it fell a bit short of them for us.

In editing the podcast I noticed 2 big fails on my part… I called “Some Folks” “Some Things” and “Genuine American Girl” “Real American Girl”.  Apologies!!

This was released with multiple variations of bonus tracks.  Both Mike and I feel this bonus track should have ended the album.

Also, here is Alice and crew rocking “Born This Way”

SMLTBCBPB (Song most likely to be covered by Pat Boone):

Disco Bloodbath Boogie Fever

Kelly’s Recc:

Gadget: SoundPeats Magnetic Wireless Earbuds

  • These bluetooth earbuds work on both iOS and Android and are super inexpensive. Try $27.99 on Amazon right now. O_O
  • The 2 earbuds are magnetized so they stick together when you drop them around your neck so you won’t lose them. Take that Apple Airpods.

  • And it comes with an “ear bag”.

 

 

 

Mel’s Recc:

  • He also MADE his wife’s wedding dress. MADE IT.

Squat Cobbler 47: Alice Cooper – Along Came a Spider (review)

“It’s your world, but it’s my street”

This week we review Alice Cooper’s 25th album “Along Came a Spider”.  Both Mike and Kelly feel this has been an underappreciated album – and possibly Alice’s best concept album execution ever.  BTW, it was the Spinal Tap song “Hell Hole” that Kelly saw similarities with in the chorus of “I’m Hungry”.  Just a little 🙂

BONUS: Here is the promotional video we mentioned in the review…

 

BONUS BONUS: Mike and Kelly’s best harmonica entries:

Wizard (Mike)

Nowadays a Woman Gotta Hit A Man (Kelly)

SMLTBCBPB (Song most likely to be covered by Pat Boone):

Mike – Wrapped In Silk
Kelly – Vengeance Is Mine
