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!

N&S – Ep 148 – Call a Clown

YouTube hates Kelly. Mel likes a clown.

 

Kelly’s Recc:

App: MP3 Skype Recorder

  • a free app that records Skype calls on Windows OS, because sometimes you just need to.
  • Very useful when YouTube and Google Hangouts hate you.
  • There’s a Pro version for businesses if you need a little more.

 

 

 

Mel’s Recc:

Youtube Channel: Puddles Pity Party

  • Yes, he’s a clown. Yes, he’s that clown that was on America’s Got Talent. Yes, Mel is scared of clowns.
  • Puddle’s sings beautifully and you will love him. I make no guarantees that he isn’t going to turn on us at any moment though.
  • You’ve been warned.
