Squat Cobbler 75: Tangent Tally Bacon

TANGENT TALLY: 12

Given our tendency to go off on tangents in past Squats, we have introduced the tangent tally – a feature on all future Squat Cobblers (and past ones when Kelly gets around to it).  Just our gift to listeners to warn them in advance on how meandering an episode might be.

Also, in what is likely a vain attempt to cleanse future shows from this, we decided to do a show of nothing but tangents to “get them out of our (Mike’s) system”.

So enjoy our discussion of hashtag games/bacon/MABA hats/The New Orleans Saints/the “big game”/Applebees/Women’s World Cup/Canada/Cloverfield/True Blood/TV shows/Ted Bundy/court appearances/Varg/Prison Escapes.

N&S – Ep 163 – Light and Dark

Sorry for the long wait. Life gets in the way. A lot.  We’ve got a little something for your eyes and your ears this time!

 

Mel’s Rec

Music: Trevor Hall

  • His latest album is The Fruitful Darkness. Check it out on YouTube or Spotify. My favs are Karma and The Weaver.
  • It’s very positive and upbeat and will make you a better person. 😀
  • The first song I heard of Trevor’s is below. You can download it from Jam In The Van for free. Which is freaking awesome.

 

 

 

 

Kelly’s Rec

Comics: The White Knight

  • Available in a collected edition from DC or wherever you get your graphic novels.

Squat Cobbler 74: Space Issues

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.

Squat Cobbler 73: Cosplay and Retro Gaming

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”…

N&S- Ep. 162 – The Sogmaster

We’re BACK!! Well, sorta. If Mel’s internet holds up. We’ll see. No guarantees. 

 

Mel’s Rec: 

YouTube: The Crafsman SteadyCraftin

  • The most positive and cool Crafting channel you will find on YouTube

 

Kelly’s Rec:

Apps: Cash Show and HQ Trivia

  • These 2 trivia apps PAY you real money for answering trivia questions.
  • Cash Show is on hiatus until 2019 and HQ Trivia has suffered the loss of it’s CEO
  • Get ready for Cash Show on itunes or google
  • Get HQ Trivia on itunes or google

 

Dylan’s video for reference 

 

 

Mike’s Rec:

Album: Mayhem’s Grand Declaration of War Remastered

  • Despite what Mike told you, this is not Christian Folk Music.
  • Spotify Link

 

 

Social Media Corner:

Mel: In lieu of an actual social media account, I give you a video that made me laugh. 

 

Mike: @realDonaldTrump on Twitter (From Mel: Mike apparently just wants to hurt me, so I refuse to link to this account. I offer you an alternative below.)

  • @RealPressSecBot this account takes the tweets from the previous account and puts them on some official letterhead to make them the official press releases that they are.  So Fun.
  • If you would like to watch the commercial for the Pizza Sandwich:

As promised, here is Mike’s Grandmother’s favorite track… (honestly)

 

As also promised…

Squat Cobbler 68+1: The episode we chose not to name

Had we named it, it would have been related to the Sea-man talk at the end of the episode.

This week we return to recommendations…

Mike – Podcast: Video Palace

Available on Shudder and Apple Podcasts, “Video Place” is a podcast about a podcast seeking out rare VHS tapes.  So meta. Episodes run around 20 minutes each and are some really great retro/mystery fun.

Kelly – Documentary: Power of Grayskull: The Definitive History of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (2017)

Available on Netflix, “Power of Grayskull: The Definitive History of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (2017)” tells they tale of the brief merchandising juggernaut-y run of He Man.  The comic, various different action figures series, and toy company drama are also covered.

At the end of the episode, we are predictably immature when we discuss Mer-man’s first proposed name… Sea-man
