N&S – Ep 153 – Happiness and Conspiracy Theories

Sorry for all the little crashes in the background. The hellcats were in exceptional form and it overwhelmed my editing ability. ~M

 

Mel’s Rec:

Book/Audiobook: The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can’t stand Positive Thinking by Oliver Burkeman

  • I found this book to be far, far more entertaining than I possibly could have imagined.
  • I listened to the Audible version, but do have the physical book as well.
  • This book covers the philosophies of the Stoics and Buddhism to help us understand that things could always be worse.
  • I had a couple of lightbulb moments, perhaps you will too.

 

 

Kelly’s Rec:

Book: Best Evidence by David S Lifton

  • An interesting theory about the JFK assassination.
  • Kelly won’t give the the theory away, but it sounds fascinating.
  • He started out being troubled by the physics of the Zapruder film, but ended up going far deeper.
  • This doesn’t appear to be available as an ebook, so go check out your library or used bookstore to check it out.

The Richard Belzer book, Mel mentioned is here.

 

 

 

Social Media Corner:

 

@FearTWD: SO Kelly is finally warming up to Fear the Walking Dead since Morgan and some new faces are wandering over. Follow along.

Squat Cobbler 54: Ace Frehley – Ace Frehley (review)

Mike and Kelly continue their album review “music prisoner exchange” with Ace Frehly’s 1978 solo album.  Kelly admits to be a recovering Kiss fan and that he shelled out money for all four Kiss solo albums to secure this wonderful piece of fine art..

There was agreement it was a very enjoyable album due to some great music and guitar work, but the lyrical content was a tad thin… and we don’t mean maybe.

Mike mentioned a Lords of London version of the single off this album, “New York Groove”. And while Kelly couldn’t find that, he did stumble across this gem.

 

 

N&S – Ep 152 – Kelly’s Idea of Cellos Really Flies

It’s been a really long week. Mel fails to guess Kelly’s version of Mel’s Cellos.

 

Cheerson CX-10WD Nano Drone

Kelly’s Rec:

Gadget: Cheerson CX-10WD Nano Drone

  • It’s the most adorable tiny drone ever.
  • It’s also super inexpensive.
  • Cats and puppies beware.
  • It has a tiny little camera too!
  • Here’s a link to Amazon, but shop around. It’s available a lot cheaper than this.

 

Kelly’s Flight of Drones

 

Mel’s Rec:

Software: Scupltris

  • Sculptris is a FREE 3D modeling program so you can digitally sculpt cool things.
  • It’s made by Pixologic, the maker’s of ZBrush.
  • Why do you want to digitally sculpt? So you can 3D print stuff! Also to be cool.
  • I watched a couple of tutorials that really help you get started: This one is a paid class on Udemy
  • Start with this free Youtube video. It covers all of the basics.

 

 

 

Social Media Corner:

Kelly: Alice Cooper: @AliceCooper Alice finally got his real name on Twitter! Go give him a follow!

Mel: @Moon_mxtr on Instagram. Very pretty/weird art along with beautiful poetry that together tell beautiful stories.

Squat Cobbler 53: Vond – Selvmord/Suicide (review)

 

For round 2 of our “music prisoner exchange” Mike and I discuss Vond’s “Selvmord” (Suicide).  Mike shares the fairly unique original packaging, Kelly quibbles the cover is more murder-y than suicide-y.  So, basically a knee-slapper episode 🙂

Actually this is a great ambient album and you all should take a listen.

Vond is a side project of Mortis, and you might want to check that work out as well.  Huge variety in musical style, including this gem…

 

N&S Ep 151 – Cellos make everything better, Meatbags

Squat Cobbler 52: Tonio K. – Amerika (review)

Since we are all out of Alice Cooper albums (for now), Mike and I decided to do a “music prisoner exchange” where we share albums with each other that the other person is less aware of.

We are starting with Kelly’s offering:  Tonio K.’s “Amerika“.  This is a great album overall, but if nothing else, listen to “Merzsuite”.  More on Merz here.

See? Culture and stuff for our Squaties 🙂

Here it is..

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!
