Tale of the Nine-Tailed and Canva recommendations (Nurture & Support 184)

Some recommendations from two rising TikToc stars….

Mel’s recommendation –  Tale of the Nine-Tailed

Mel recommends viewing a Korean drama/urban fantasy called “Tale of the Nine-Tailed” (post crowded sourced translation).   It is steeped in humor, mythology, action, and a camera-friendly cast 🙂

She also snuck in TicTok, VIKI, and Goblin mini-recommendations.

 

 

Kelly’s recommendation –  Canva 

While Kelly continues to make progress on learning GIMP, he can still use some help.  Canva.com offers outstanding, flexible templates for a huge variety of items from YouTube banners, candle labels, greeting cards and MUCH more.  Even if you are using the free version you can save your work to tweak at a later date.

How to track your dog and confirm the earth is not flat – Nurture & Support 183

Two helpful and different recommendations this week…

Kelly’s recommendationSciManDan YouTube Channel

Dan is a funny and sharp guy that debunks flat-earthers each Friday and skewers tinfoil hat theories each Tuesday.  Good stuff!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mel’s recommendationFi dog collar/tracker

Mel has found a great solution to address her “born to be free” corgi.  Fantastic battery life, great collar options, and while not cheap – a VERY worthwhile investment.

Aicook electric tea kettle review and a great GIMP tutorial YouTube channel – Nurture & Support 182

This week Mel returns to Amazon and Kelly FINALLY learns GIMP (sorta)

Mel’s recommendation:  Aicook Electric Kettle

After years of irresponsible tea brewing, Mel picked up an electric kettle with presets for the best temperature to brew green tea, white tea, Oolong tea, black tea, and coffee.  She has really noticed the difference in flavor, and outside of missing the cool blue LED light on her old kettle, she has been very satisfied.

 

 

 

Kelly’s recommendation:  Logos by Nick YouTube channel

After years of irresponsible editing, Kelly is FINALLY moving on from his Paint Shop Pro (version 6) graphics tool to one released in this decade… GIMP.  Nick’s channel has both GIMP and Inkscape tutorials that are easy to follow and well constructed.  Nick also has a website with even more helpful content.  Here are a couple of logos he did using Nick’s tutorials…

Revisiting MySpace (eventually) – Squat Cobbler 138

Tangent Tally: I lost count

This week Dr. Mike were SUPPOSED to talk about MySpace, but as is our wont, we meandered quite a bit prior to discussing it.

Perhaps a roadmap of the tangents prior to the discussion of the actual topic would help:

  1. Mike’s latest unearned title
  2. 2020 Election
  3. What country would you move to?
  4. Mike’s take on the Bahamas and Canada
  5. Costa Rica’s plumbing
  6. Kelly’s trips to Canada and England
  7. Kelly’s knowledge of French
  8. Frozen Niagara Falls
  9. Frozen mist and the metric system
  10. TOPIC!!! (12:45 mark, link to video below)

As mentioned in the podcast (at the 28:07 mark), we are deciding on our “top eight” for the upcoming Squat Cobbler MySpace page.  Feel free to recommend additions/deletions and you can certainly nominate yourself.  Here is where we landed so far:

  1. Actor Nikki Bilderback
  2. Worst Cooks in America winner Allison Wolfe
  3. Actor Rebecca Kennedy
  4. Mel from the Nurture & Support podcast
  5.  Actor Terri Ivens
  6. (this could be YOU!)
  7. YouTube commenter “F*** your beards” guy
  8. “Actor” Gerald Webb

The inspiration for this podcast topic…

Nurture & Support 181: OpenShot video editor and The Witcher

This week marks Mel’s triumphant return to Netflix and Kelly’s continued quest for good free software 🙂

Kelly’s recommendation:  Openshot

Well, I finally gave up on the Windows provided solutions and downloaded a new video editor.  It is called OpenShot.  The interface is pretty straightforward and the features are numerous.  It has been compared favorably to iMovie, so probably a good choice if you are looking.

 

 

Mel’s recommendation: The Witcher

Mel finally began to use her Netflix subscription and watched The Witcher (mosting in one sitting).  It hit on all of Mel’s favorites… there are books, related video games, and fantasy.  She also found it provides a healthy dose of humor in addition to the adventures.
