Episode 36 – The Fat Man in the Bath Tub Meets B-Movie Monsters

We present to you the makings of a perfect summer weekend: a Hammock, a Tomato, and a Sharknado (book).

Kelly’s Recommendation:


Music: Little Feat’s ‘Waiting for Columbus’ Live Album (1978)

  • Little Feat is a genre crossing band formed by Lowell George. (Mel likes the term Swamp Rock.)
  • Features a Tomato-Headed Woman sitting in a Hammock on the cover….
  • The first full track “Fat Man in the Bath Tub” TOTALLY sold Kelly.
  • Listen to the album out on Spotify and check out LittleFeat.net for info.
  • If you like the album cover, you can even get that Hot Tomato Lady on a t-shirt here.
  • Learn the secret of the Tomato and the Hammock
  • One of the best live albums EVER!


Mel’s Recommendation:



Book: ‘How to Survive a Sharknado and Other Unnatural Disasters’ by Andrew Shaffer

  • Yes, this is a book that was born from the Sharknado horror wonderfulness.
  • Don’t worry, it’s not just about Sharknados. It’s mostly about the “Other Unnatural Disasters” part.
  • I feel it’s more like a bestiary of wonderful exotic creatures like SHARKTOPUS and PIRANHACONDA with a few ARACHNOQUAKES and ICE TWISTERS for good measure.
  • There’s also a sort of Alice Cooper reference (see the Bigfoot section)
  • If you’re a fan of so-bad-they’re-good B movies, you need to get yourself a copy. You’ll sleep better at night. I promise. ~M
  • Check out more at the author’s site, or at SharknadoBook.com


Social Media Recommendations:


Kelly: @Amy_Glitters: A clever lady that live tweets bad movies. Join in!

Mel: @AndrewTShaffer: The humorous author of “How To Survive A Sharknado” knows his B movie monsters…

One Response to Episode 36 – The Fat Man in the Bath Tub Meets B-Movie Monsters

  1. I was surprised to find out that the Venn Diagram of my musical tastes & Kelly’s is not two distinct circles as I had previously believed. They do have an overlap, and that is Little Feat.
