Tony starts off reading out the history of the Ball corporation for some weird reason. Tony gets Covid. We review the concert Mercyful Fate and Kreator at the Fillmore. We feature our friend’s band, Dune,TX as our break song. Follow them on Spotify to support hard working musicians. 🙂 We discuss the travesty of National Toilet Day.
We start off trying to kill time to get to the intro and Nhat gives a brief review of his Steam Deck. Tony worries about his mental capacity diminishing and gives Nhat permission to crush his skull under a car tire, then he proceeds to have issues to pronounce the word “immune.” Tony tries to scam a chair from his office, but in the dumbest way possible. We send our condolences to Art Baez, of Rosebud, a band that Tony’s band Acid Country played with. Nhat’s friend’s friend has issues with pig anus and snout soup. In the spirit of Halloween, we cover the eight creepiest mythical creatures from around the world. Emma joins in late and we play some old Lo Fi Show promos.
We’re back after a month long hiatus and Tony starts off with his trip to Chicago to see Riot Fest. We discuss seeing Joe Satriani and a few shows we’ve watched in our review segment. Emma, our long-time listener, makes a surprise appearance out of nowhere, so we get caught up briefly with her shenanigans. Nhat gets a Steam Deck and Tony is hoping it isn’t a steamy deck. We play Pokemon or Urban Dictionary.
Tony and Nhat lament that they’ll never be edgy enough to get hired for a docu-series. We go to the Rocky Mountain Record Convention and Tony gets ripped off (again). We review a few movies, including “Muerte Al Verano,” “Prey,” and “Top Gun: Maverick.” We discuss the end of “Better Call Saul” vs. “Breaking Bad.”
Intro Song of the Week:
“To Carry My Grief Through Torpor And Silence” – Allegaeon
We have an abbreviated (and unexpected) Thursday show because Tony needed to get back to take care of his dog. We play a new game called “Inappropriate Mashups.” We somehow get every single Fact or Crap question wrong on this episode, which is definitely a first.
We start discussing life and kids and how we view the different generations. Nhat goes on an anti-Apple rant. We go into the unlimited quantity “limited copies” of things. Tony talks about how he’d rather have a chicken sandwich in his face over boobs. Tony vaguely reviews Top Gun/Top Gun II. We ponder on the possibility that we’ve been duped this whole time and The Devil is not as cool as he’s made out to be and what kind of music would be playing over endlessly in Hell. We have to look up the difference between a handbag and a purse.
Nhat discusses the Colorado Avalanche winning the Stanley Cup and then we get into current events and then just generally ignorantly discuss politics. Tony reminisces about where he pooped downtown. We pre-grade the next phase of Marvel movies. We play Movies And Music. We rate a new crop of shitty bands. We start a shroom farm.
We start off looking over some mushroom options (as per usual). Tony has a fat complex about his drug tolerance. Tony pokes at our anti-social tendencies. We play a choose-your-own-adventure game with Tony’s life. Nhat may have been propositioned to join a cult and we discuss what kind of cult we’d create if we had one. FYI, “Tony’s Rap” features Music by Joystock – https://www.joystock.org
We start off talking about uneventful return to Mixlr, quite honestly for no other reason than that it produces cleaner audio files to work with, as opposed to Audacity. We discuss the evolution of music. We talk about dead musicians and their legacy. We briefly review Stranger Things, The Boys, Kenobi and Ozark. We have Lamprey News.
Tony has an encounter with baby raccoons and has to figure out what to do with them in the first part of the show. Nhat and Tony go to see Arch Enemy/Behemoth, Destruction and Phoebe Bridgers all in the same month and briefly review Better Call Saul and Moon Knight.
