Slow and steady wins the race. Finally another podcast…..
Mel’s recommendation: You Need a Budget web app
Mel recommends a handy zero-bed based budgeting tool this show. She has actually been using it for over 6 months and it has proved very useful. Annual and monthly subscriptions are available. You also get a free trial period that runs just over a month so you can take it for a spin prior to buying.
Kelly’s recommendation: Oranges & Lemons by XTC
Kelly revisits a favorite album by a too often overlooked band, XTC. This is a double album featuring 15 songs released in 1989. Songs range from pop (Mayor of Simpleton) to the more adventurous (Across This Antheap). Highly listenable!!
If interested, check out the lengthy Wikipedia article on Oranges & Lemons that I mentioned.
And as promised, the awesome Mayor of Simpleton video…

After many failed attempts, I finally have a VR device I love. No computer required, easy set up, and amazing VR experiences. Definitely worth a look (and once you get it, get the Vader Immortal series!)
Mel LOVES the Alien series. Well, except for Alien 3 movie, which she pretty much hates… UNTIL she came across an alternative script by William Gibson available on Audible. It runs just over 2 hours and features some of the original cast including Michael Biehn and Lance Henriksen!
The most awesome Dave LaGreca joins Dr. Mike and I to compare our rankings of Alice Cooper’s albums. We agree sometimes. We disagree sometimes. Mike lies many times. This was a ridiculously fun show with three major Alice Cooper fans. Definitely worth checking out! Special thanks to Dave for joining us. He was an outstanding guest and we hope to have him back on the show often.
There are some pretty cool video game perks for Amazon Prime members. We are just scratching the surface in this video talking about the free games you can install and use via the Amazon Games PC app. What makes this even better is AtGames Legends Ultimate owners can easily play these on their arcade unit using the BYOG option.
Available on Netflix, with episodes on Elf and The Nightmare Before Christmas, this installation of the “…that made us” series is full of interesting backstories, challenges and information on these movies. If you are a fan of them already, you love them more.
If you weren’t a fan, you just might warm up to them some.
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.
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:
