Awesome scary podcast – The Shadow Diaries (Nurture & Support {Cobbler} 186)

This week in sort of a Nurture and Support and Squat Cobbler combo, we visit with Gerald Webb about the amazing podcast “The Shadow Diaries” brought to you by the good folks at Studio71 and Snarled Entertainment.

This podcast stars Madelaine Petsch & Kara Hayward and around episode 4, our favorite cantankerous, ugly shirt wearing friend Gerald Webb shows up.

In a few weeks the season finale will be published and we plan to do a “tweet sync” where we all start the podcast off of the Snarled YouTube channel playlist at the same time and tweet along with it with Gerald and maybe some surprise guests joining in.

Jump on this, it would be awesome to have a big group for the live tweet.  In addition to YouTube, you can find The Shadow Diaries on nearly all podcast platforms.

This episode is also available on YouTube

It’s Gerald Webb time! (well on Wednesday the 11th)

Special announcement to Snarkalecs and non-Snarkalecs!

Our good friend Gerald Webb will be making his first appearance on a very cool podcast called The Shadow Diaries starring Madelaine Petsch & Kara Hayward this Wednesday (November 11).

Similar to what we did with Gerald’s awesome STACKS, he has made himself available for a “watch party”.  I guess “listen party” is more appropriate given this is a podcast.   So, at 9pm EASTERN on November 11, we’ll have either a Zoom call or Hangout, listen to the episode (they usually run 20-30 minutes), and then we’ll chat with Gerald.

WARNING: I will be hosting this along with Mike Bilinski (dun dun dun).

Really hope we can get a good number of us together.  Sorry for the short notice, but there is actual homework for you on this.  So, if you want to attend:

  1. Let me know you want to participate (either via Twitter @kellythul or email me at kelly.thul@gmail.com).
  2. Let me know if you prefer Zoom or a Google Hangout for the online meeting. Also, I’ll need an email to send the invite to
  3. We will be listening to episode 4, so you might want to get through episodes 1-3 before Wednesday.  It is available on nearly all the podcast platforms and here on YouTube.

Ping me if you have any questions!

Recommendations: The Boys and Art With Flo (Nurture & Support 185)

Special treat around the 18:30 mark 🙂

Kelly’s recommendation –  The Boys

This Amazon show is based on the graphic novels of the same name by Garth Ennis. While there are many tweaks, it does effectively bring forward the dark, funny, dark, strange world of the graphic novel.  If you have problems with profanity.. not your show. If you have problems with VERY dark situations… not your show.  The cast and writing are spectacular!

 

 

 

Mel’s recommendation –  Art With Flo

Just like Kelly, Mel remains on the lookout for a graphic art Sherpa.  Flo seems to be the ticket for her.  Flo provides easy to follow, concise guidance on using Procreate.  Flo doesn’t assume you have the highest end equipment, in fact Mel was able to keep up with her vintage iPad Air and generation 1 Apple Pencil.   As promised, here is Mel’s first project.   Nice job!!

Tale of the Nine-Tailed and Canva recommendations (Nurture & Support 184)

Some recommendations from two rising TikToc stars….

Mel’s recommendation –  Tale of the Nine-Tailed

Mel recommends viewing a Korean drama/urban fantasy called “Tale of the Nine-Tailed” (post crowded sourced translation).   It is steeped in humor, mythology, action, and a camera-friendly cast 🙂

She also snuck in TicTok, VIKI, and Goblin mini-recommendations.

 

 

Kelly’s recommendation –  Canva 

While Kelly continues to make progress on learning GIMP, he can still use some help.  Canva.com offers outstanding, flexible templates for a huge variety of items from YouTube banners, candle labels, greeting cards and MUCH more.  Even if you are using the free version you can save your work to tweak at a later date.

How to track your dog and confirm the earth is not flat – Nurture & Support 183

Two helpful and different recommendations this week…

Kelly’s recommendationSciManDan YouTube Channel

Dan is a funny and sharp guy that debunks flat-earthers each Friday and skewers tinfoil hat theories each Tuesday.  Good stuff!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mel’s recommendationFi dog collar/tracker

Mel has found a great solution to address her “born to be free” corgi.  Fantastic battery life, great collar options, and while not cheap – a VERY worthwhile investment.

Aicook electric tea kettle review and a great GIMP tutorial YouTube channel – Nurture & Support 182

This week Mel returns to Amazon and Kelly FINALLY learns GIMP (sorta)

Mel’s recommendation:  Aicook Electric Kettle

After years of irresponsible tea brewing, Mel picked up an electric kettle with presets for the best temperature to brew green tea, white tea, Oolong tea, black tea, and coffee.  She has really noticed the difference in flavor, and outside of missing the cool blue LED light on her old kettle, she has been very satisfied.

 

 

 

Kelly’s recommendation:  Logos by Nick YouTube channel

After years of irresponsible editing, Kelly is FINALLY moving on from his Paint Shop Pro (version 6) graphics tool to one released in this decade… GIMP.  Nick’s channel has both GIMP and Inkscape tutorials that are easy to follow and well constructed.  Nick also has a website with even more helpful content.  Here are a couple of logos he did using Nick’s tutorials…
