On this episode we attempt to keep things lighthearted by not to talking about this garbage fire of a year, but we can’t totally avoid it. Garbage fires spread. Nevertheless, there’s some good old fashioned random banter, the censorship bleep joke, and also discussion of an obscure nautical term! Truly this episode has it all. All of those things I mentioned.
Was there supposed to be a 3 month gap between part 1 and 2 of our overlong musical extravaganza? No, absolutely not. Is it worth the wait? Same answer.
Anyway, here we are trying not to sound too pretentious about our favorite music of last decade. It doesn’t go well in that particular regard but stick around until the post-credits if you want to hear some bad Wisconsin accents.
Next episode will be better!
There’s a reason we don’t usually try and talk current events – the story often changes before we get our episodes out. Irritating. Who needs that?
We recorded this episode weeks ago and talked broadly about the Democratic presidential primary which has changed quite a bit. That’s what we get for trying to talk about politics.
But don’t worry – there’s other junk in here and eventually we get around somehow to Space Jam 2 and Dolph Lundgren. So all is well.
On this episode we show how little we know about very famous and popular musicians by trying to think of names for possible music biopics. Also, it’s Justin Vernon appreciation time again because we actually went to see Bon Iver. We try not to gush too much. Sorry.
loudest longest episode ever! That doesn’t mean it’s good. But you should still listen as we discuss our personal musical evolutions. Includes rabbit trails on boy bands, CCM, pop punk, and Coldplay. And also find out what embarrassing (his word) album was Eric’s first.
Like the previous episode, we had to record this in separate studios and the audio quality suffered a bit more this time than last time. Hopefully we will be in the same place next time.
A factual correction nobody cares about: Matt stated he graduated high school in 2009. In fact it was 2008 and he is older than he thinks and/or wants.
On this anniversary of the Allied Invasion of Normandy, we actually spend a little time thinking about war and how neither of us would have probably survived *any* of them.
The serious topics continue as we talk about when people leave the faith. We promise next episode will be less sobering.
