Savage Hippie Podcast Episode 57 – Fooled by a Fridge Fixin’ Injun

me_rachel_elya_savage_hippie_57

As if you hadn’t heard enough about the standoff between the Catholic Kid and the drum beatin’ Indian, Edwin Oslan, Rachel Cohen-Bourne, and new addition Elya Oslan (Edwin’s brother, in case ya couldna guess), continue to beat the dead horse into horse paste by actually flashing back to a week earlier, where we give our immediate, ignint, duped by the mainstream media reactions, and THEN correct ourselves a week later. Isn’t that clever?

But that’s not ALL we talk about! Nope, we also throw in New York’s new ‘bortion law, Trump’s opening the government back up, the controversy surrounding the new Ghostbusters movie, my recent obsession with Michael Moorcock’s Elric saga, Rachel’s rock star dad, and our love for prog rock. Rachel also further elaborates on her near death experience at the hands of an ectopic pregnancy, and we do our best imitations of whiny New Yawk Jooz.

For this week’s Sounds of Marshabaloosh, we give ya a song from the Crazy World of Arthur Brown, the God of Hellfire, who I saw this past Friday with Jex Thoth, Ruby the Hatchet, and Sleepy Sun. The song is called “Muscle of Love” (NOT the Alice Cooper song) and is from Arthur Brown’s latest album Zim Zam Zim.

The song at the end is of course “The Diet Has Failed” by the Yesticles, and Rachel did the brilliant photoshop art.

Savage Hippie Podcast Episode 56 – You Don’t Have Aspergers, You’re Just an Asshole (w/ Ben Arzate)

me_and_rachel_white_house_feast

Thanks to Rachel having to go and nearly die, this episode took a little longer to come out than expected. But once again, she and the “disgraced” Edwin Oslan are back to discuss the topics of the day, along with make jokes at the expense of minorities, women, people who are on the “spectrum”, and people of non-normative sexual orientations. They’re also joined by Ben Arzate, author of the short story collection The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Saying Goodbye and the novel The Story of the Y, which will be out soon. You can check out Ben’s blog and purchase his writings here.

Over the course of this nearly two hour abortion, we discuss Ben’s writings, why Rachel has a hyphenated last name, what’s wrong with modern psychology, Rachel’s recent near death experience, the healthcare issue, Trump’s white house fast food feast, Janeane Garofalo’s “beyond the pale” defense of Louis C.K., and some other stuff about some other shit. And, of course, we make jokes at the expense of minorities, women, people who are on the “spectrum”, and people of non-normative sexual orientations.

For Sounds of Marshabaloosh, I said, “fuck the man!” and played the totally copyrighted “Tribulation” by death/thrash metal band Possessed, because I saw them recently, and, well, “fuck the man!”

As usual, the song at the end is “The Diet Has Failed” by the Yesticles, and Rachel did the amazing artwork.

Listen to it on youtube, as well!

Savage Hippie Podcast Episode 55 – Those Who CONTROL the Language Are the Ones Who Control the Language

savage_hippie_make_shift_picture

Well, it’s back… sorta. The “disgraced” Edwin Oslan is joined by brand new co-host Rachel Cohen-Bourne, a liberal who doesn’t have Trump Derangement Syndrome, to discuss a variety of topics, including the recent Louis C.K.’s Parkland massacre jokes, how political correctness is killing comedy, the ever so relevant James Gunn debacle, the Trump government shutdown, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s latest dance video. I also very briefly talk about what REALLY happened to the previous Savage Hippie podcast, and we DO get visited by a ghost of Savage Hippie past (what do you expect? We’re roommates after all!).

Look, Savage Hippie is MY podcast. Just like Motörhead is (well, was) Lemmy’s band, Black Sabbath is Tony Iommi’s band, the Fall is (well, was) Mark E. Smith’s band, and Hawkwind is Dave Brock’s band. We’re giving you free entertainment, so if you miss the other hosts, go and listen to their shit.

For Sounds of Marshabaloosh (yes, I’m keeping the name even though Ann came up with it), we feature Disastroid. Last year, one of their members sent me the entire album to listen to and review. I never did, sorry. So, instead, we talk about ’em and play one of their songs on our show. The song is “I Didn’t Kill Myself” from their latest album, Screen. If you enjoy fuzzed out stoner rock, give ’em a listen. Some guy even called ’em the best band in San Francisco.

Sorry for the shitty art. I had to throw something together really quick.

And, as per usual, the music at the end is “The Diet Has Failed” by the Yesticles.

Watch it on youtube!

The Savage Hippie Video Podcast Episode 20: April Jones and the Kings of Sleaze

mentors_kings_of_sleaze

Note to fans: we will have the video for this episode up on youtube next week.

In this special edition (aren’t they all special?) of the Savage Hippie video podcast, Ann, David, and I are joined by April Jones, director of The Mentors: King of Sleaze, a brand new documentary about the “rape rock” group the Mentors.

For those unfamiliar, the Mentors, who still record and perform to this very day, wear executioner hoods and play loud, crude, and catchy heavy metal music that focuses on lyrics which debase and demean women. Their lyrics are so over the top and absurd, it’s tough to take them seriously. Yet, some have, resulting in boycotts, protests, and even shows being canceled.

Over the course of the hour, we discuss the documentary (duh!), stifling political correctness in punk, and how such a film will be perceived by feminists and other purveyors of groupthink. We also answer viewer questions.

The Savage Hippie Video Podcast Episode 18: SPECIAL GUEST – SABO!

cruz_small

Edwin, Ann, and David welcome a very special guest — right-wing guerrilla street artist Sabo! Sabo has trolled the likes of Harvey Weinstein, the Academy Awards, Meryl Streep, Mark Zuckerberg, the Parkland school shooting “victims,” and every other lefty you can think of (he keeps getting banned from social media faster than he can create new accounts!). Sabo joins us in-studio for part I of a two-part interview.

In this special episode, Ann, Edwin, and David pay tribute to legendary independent publisher and free speech advocate Adam Parfrey, who passed away on May 10th. In a roundabout way, Adam is the reason this show exists. Joining the usual threesome is a very special guest from Down Under — Richard Wolstencroft, founder and CEO of the Melbourne Underground Film Festival.
