Sorry it’s taken so damn long to get episode 49 out. Part of the reason for the delay is that I’ve been moving around a lot and trying to get my footing in Los Angeles, and the other and more important reason is that Ann Sterzinger kept sounding like an alien broadcasting from inside of an echo tube flying through outer space, and we couldn’t figure out why. However, we switched our recording process, and whadaya know? Ann and David Cole both sound great, and now I sound like I’m inside of a garbage can.
Of course, you probably don’t care about that since you listen to the show for Ann and David and probably skip through the parts where I talk; but it is annoying considering that David and I are literally sitting next to each other and sharing a microphone.
Anyway, a lot has happened in the month that we’ve been away. Some of it is personal, such as the release of Ann’s new book, Disaster Fitness (buy, buy, buy!) and our friend and listener David McPheeters shooting someone in the back five times. Some of it is pop-cultural, such as this shitty rap metal band called Stray From the Path making an anti-AltRight video, which I actually wrote a piece about, and Shia LeBeouf getting arrested for drunken and disorderly conduct and his tirade against a couple of police officers. And some is political, such as CNN’s near implosion and Donald Trump Jr.’s emails.
We also talk about sex and poop.
The band featured in this week’s Sounds of Marshabaloosh is none other than Dream Machine, who not only are an awesome psychedelic heavy rock band, but were kicked off of their label for statements they made about illegal immigrants, feminism and political correctness. If you want more info on them, read my interview with guitarist/singer Matthew Melton. The Dream Machine song we feature is called “Buried Alive” and is from their album, The Illusion, which you can listen to here.
The artwork, which comes from The King of Comedy, was suggested by a fan and then handed over to another fan, who prefers not to be named, but did the awesome Photoshop artwork. Once again, the song at the end is “The Diet Has Failed” by the Yesticles.
