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.

Squat Cobbler 135: Cool John Entwistle solo songs playlist (Kelly #6)

Tangent Tally: 4

This week Dr. Mike bravely battled the bad influence that is me as he listened to my latest song playlist featuring John Entwistle solo songs:

  1. My Size
  2. I Was Just Being Friendly’
  3. I Feel Better
  4. Peg Leg Peggy
  5. Cell No. 7
  6. Talk Dirty

 

I figured to would be good to also include the Tonio K/Steve Jones song that came up in one of our tangents

Nurture & Support 180: Novelly Yours Candles and The Umbrella Academy

This week Mel recommends some awesome candles you can light and enjoy as you binge Kelly’s suggestion.

Mel’s recommendation:  Novelly Yours Candles

Mel found a clever way to bring up Gideon the Ninth again.  That awesome novel – as well as many, many others are represented in candle form on the Novelly Yours Candles website.

Mel also pointed out that the @novellyours Instagram is currently posting discount codes!

 

 

 

Kelly’s recommendation:  The Umbrella Academy

I finally got around to watching this due to the encouragement of friend of the show Jeans, and I am SO glad I did.  Funny, strange, engaging… and season 2 just dropped on Netflix!
