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 – Frank Zappa (Kelly #5)

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

Nurture & Support 174: Mel and Kelly talk about what to buy on Amazon (again)

In what is becoming a trend, Mel and I share what to buy on Amazon based on our recent purchases.  Amazon, feel free to start sending us free stuff to review.  Maybe start with Nintendo Switches.

 

Mel’s Recommendation –  Star Wars Bookends

Han. Leia. Classic poses. Heavy. Bookends. Currently out of stock.  What more do you need to know??  Here is the link to keep checking to order these.

 

 

 

 

 

Kelly’s RecommendationTechole HDMI splitter

Works like a champ. Does not require a power source. Supports 4K.  VERY affordable.

Nurture & Support 173: The miracle of loaves and Fitbits

After some shelter at home chat, Mel and I continue our long history of recommending Fitbit products (note to Fitbit, we remain VERY open to trying out new products) and provide a cool recipe as well.

 

 

Kelly’s Recommendation – Fitbit Versa 2

This is a good looking, long battery life, reliable smart-ish watch at a price point WELL below the Apple Watch and its ilk.  The only drawback is no GPS, but that has only been a minor issue for me.

 

 

 

 

Mel’s Recommendation –  Artisan Bread in Five

As Mel explained it, this site offers a recipe for fresh bread that is quick and easy and I might even be capable of executing.  We’ll see 🙂

You all have likely heard of it, but if you haven’t watched yet, you owe it to yourself to board this train to crazytown.
