Nurture & Support 177: A visit with book author Scott William Foley

Mel and I had to opportunity to visit with independent writer Scott William Foley (@SWFoley on Twitter) to discuss his just released book “Doctor Nekros – The Complete Saga”.  This will be available in paperback on Amazon. Doctor Nekros features ghost hunters, haunted cars, demons, and necromancers – what more can you ask for?

Information on Doctor Nekros and Scott’s short stories can be found on his website scottwilliamfoley.com

As a bonus item, listeners will be treated to a little Snarkalec, Squat Cobbler, Nurture & Support and #jerkwars history.  Plus you will all be reminded that “Big Ass Spider!” is cinematic GOLD.

Special thanks to our good friend Alicia for connecting us with Scott!

Squat Cobbler 131: Album Review of Tubeway Army by Tubeway Army (featuring Gary Numan)

Tangent Tally – 2

 

This week Dr. Mike and I discuss the first album by Tubeway Army, the self titled “Tubeway Army”.  This features Gary Numan of course.  The sound is a tad more punk-ish than typical Numan fare – not that there really is typical Numan fare given his diverse (and awesome) body of work.  Very much worth a listen.

 

 

 

 

 

As promised, here is the original album artwork…

In this episode, you will also learn of Kelly’s appreciation for the grunt in music.  While mildly mocked by Mike, perhaps this will open his eyes (or ears actually)

Nurture & Support 176: Book and Battlefield Walk YouTube Channel Recommendations

When Mel and I are not buying things on Amazon, we apparently watch YouTube.

 

Mel’s Recommendation –  readwithcindy YouTube Channel

Mel is a huge Cindy fan and describes her as funny, sarcastic and borderline bitter 🙂

Cindy discusses books and has also started to branch out into Netflix and anime shows… but mostly books. Mel loves her candid (good and bad) assessments.  Be sure to also follow Cindy on Instagram and Twitter.

Bonus for this recommendation…  Kelly learned a new word… “BookTube”.

 

Kelly’s Recommendation –  Matt Atkinson

Matt is a Gettysburg Park Ranger that provides some extremely interesting battle walks.  He is funny, knowledgeable and borderline bitter 🙂

While you can find a lot of Matt’s walks on the StuffWriter YouTube channel, you can also just search on his name in YouTube to find his content.

 

 

 

As promised, here is a link to the Reckon Ball (not Reckonning Ball as I said in the podcast) and here it is in action…

 

 

As always, this episode is also available on… YouTube 🙂

Squat Cobbler 130: Checking In (Squat on the Issues)

Tangent Tally – 3

 

This week Mike and I muse on the pandemic, protests, and riots.  I know, we are probably not the first source you would look to on this, but humor us 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also, here is some link to the charity album PAGAN appears on that Mike mentioned…


Everybody Love Everybody

Squat Cobbler 129: Review of Guns N’ Roses album Chinese Democracy

Tangent Tally – 0!!

 

Dr. Mike offers up this episode’s prisoner (album) exchange, Guns N’ Roses “Chinese Democracy”.  Embarrassingly enough, I had not listened to this at all prior and I was clearly all the poorer for it.

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the clip from the show in Ireland Mike mentioned..

Squat Cobbler 128: Review of Don’t Give Up by Alice Cooper

Tangent Tally – 1

On a special edition of Squat Cobbler, Dr. Mike and I return to our favorite topic… Alice Cooper.

Alice recently released “Don’t Give Up“.  This is a song about our resolve to get though this pandemic together.  It appears each band member recorded their portions while sheltering at home.  In making the video, Alice asked fans to submit pictures of themselves holding a sign with one of the words from the lyrics.  Mike and I complied of course…

We are still looking for a confirmed Dr. Mike appearance, but I got lucky and showed up at the 37 second mark of the video

Check this song out, it is more great stuff from Alice.

Mike also continued his fake news story line that I want to punch Chuck Garric.  While this is absurd on its face, allow me to present photographic, non-punching evidence with Chuck and Calico.  Case closed.

Nurture & Support 175: Movie props and book reader goodies

Kelly recommends watching TV, Mel recommends reading.  Like we do.

 

Kelly’s Recommendation –  Disney Prop Culture

This is a Disney+ show hosted by movie prop collector Dan Lanigan.  You’ll see props and learn some history around movies like Tron, Mary Poppins, Honey I Shrunk the Kids and more.

 

 

 

Mel’s Recommendation –  Owl Crate

If you are interested in getting an exclusive, signed, hardcover, new Young Adult book each month, Owl Crate is the thing for you.  In addition to the book the crate includes several other goodies related to the book or theme.   Plus enameled pens 🙂

Squat Cobbler 127: Cobbler Mix (Kelly #5)

I chose to feature Frank Zappa in my list for Mike this round.  If you are not familiar with his work, this gives you just a small flavor of the great stuff he did.

Electric Aunt Jemima
Flakes
Joe’s Garage
Promiscuous
The Man From Utopia Meets Mary Lou
The Meek Shall Inherit Nothing

 

As promised, my theme music for my black Panzer tank with flames painted on the side that we discussed towards the end of the show
