Savage Hippie Podcast Episode 59 – He, She, Ze, or Pee?


Thanks to the fact that Rachel worked on movies on two consecutive Saturdays in a row, our schedule got all screwed up, forcing us to record this a couple Wednesday ago; and as is the usual Savage Hippie m.o., the stuff we talk about is once again antiquated. I mean, seriously, we’re talking about whether Trump SHOULD sign the budget proposal, which has already been signed and has now divided Trump’s base between the “God emperor Trump can do no wrong” MAGA people and the “well, he signed an amnesty deal. Bye-bye, USA!” people.

On the plus side, Rachel, Elya, and I discuss other stuff, such as how bitches be crazy and flaky, lhan Omar’s comments about AIPAC, the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez documentary on netflix, and the rogues gallery of the 2020 Democratic contenders.

We also answer listener questions from the two listeners who asked us questions. Note, we ALREADY have ANOTHER episode in the tank, and I’m hoping THAT comes out before the news cycle renders the topics we talk about obsolete.

For Sounds of Marshabaloosh, in honor of Grammy awards, who awarded High on Fire with best hard rock/heavy metal performance in spite not actually knowing what they sound like, I play “Rumors of War” from the High on Fire album Death Is This Communion from 2007.

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

Savage Hippie Podcast Episode 58 – C-SPAN? More Like See SKIN if You Ask ME!


The Superbowl? President Trump’s State of the Union? Judge Ginsburg’s “beating” cancer? NONE of that gets discussed in this week’s Savage Hippie. Making sure to be slightly BEHIND the curve, talking about things that lost their relevance a week ago, Edwin Oslan, Elya Oslan, and Rachel Cohen-Bourne cover Ralph Northam’s black face and KKK shenanigans, Black Panther getting nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards, the “learn to code” meme, some story about some girl who is suing Kid Rock over alleged discrimination at his bar in Detroit, and Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sss(X)in(X)em(X)a wearing her slutty attire on the Senate floor… yep, we discuss ALL of that, right at the point when everyone else is DONE discussing it. We also discuss D.W. Griffith and Birth of a Nation, since nobody is EVER done discussing that!

And for Sounds of Marshabaloosh, we play “Free Hand” by obscure 70s prog greats, Gentle Giant. Hopefully the don’t sue.

The song at the end is “The Diet Has Failed” by the Yesticles, and Rachel did the art while staring at a midget who curiously looks exactly like her.

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


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)


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


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.

The Savage Hippie Video Podcast Episode 20: April Jones and the 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.
