Savage Hippie Podcast Episode 66 – Falling Down with Andy “D-Fens” Nowicki

me_rachel_andy_hitler_workout

In case you didn’t get the joke of the pic, some overweight “sex therapist” likened physical fitness to Nazism and the notion that being overweight leads to heart problems to “eugenics.” I know it’s a cliche, but we really are living in clown world. And speaking of clown world, AltRight novelist, columnist, and all around commentator Andy Nowicki visited one of the clowniest clown worlds of the them all, Los Angeles!

Because he stayed at my pad, he was forced to pay the ultimate penalty; be on the Savage Hippie podcast with me and Rachel! Andy, Rachel, and I discuss a variety of topics, from Andy’s books to his misadventures on the Los Angeles metro to Falling Down to Pizzagate to Charlottesville to the various Democratic nominees to BUTTS!!! Hey, Andy and Rachel said this was a good one in spite my attempts to sabotage it. And yes, we answer listener questions.

For Sounds of Marshabaloosh, we play “Drive” by THOR, who Andy and I saw live at the Whiskey A Go Go. The song is from his 2015 LP Metal Avenger and features Cheetah Chrome from the Dead Boys on guitar.

The art was done by Shannon Bowman, and the song at the end is “The Diet Has Failed” by the Yesticles.

Savage Hippie Podcast Episode 65 – In the Words of Steve King, I Don’t Have to Answer That!

Sorry for the delay and the fact that the stuff we talk about is two weeks old. Rachel, Elya, and I compare AOC with Ilhan Omar, and talk about our tax returns, that crazy black guy that threw the kid from the four story balcony of the Mall of America, and kids getting in trouble at schools for wearing MAGA shit. And, of course, we answer some questions. Man, I’m lazy.

For Sounds of Marshabaloosh, we have the song “Karma Is Coming” from the album Time Is Made of Gold, the latest album from Bedouin, one of former Hawkwind bassist Alan Davey’s many fine bands. Check it out here.

Savage Hippie Podcast Episode 64 – You’re a Chick, So You Feel More Sentimental About These Things

me_aoc_2.0

Once again, Elya abandons us, leaving me and Rachel to perform our battle of the sexes shtick without him.

We kick off the dang thing by talking about the Horna show that I went to in Los Angeles. You see, the politically correct sissies at the Metal Sucks blog decided that they’re going to try to get the Horna tour shut down by putting out articles saying that Horna are Nazis. Now, they very well could be, they very well could have “nefarious” connections to some Nazi sympathizing Pagan black metal bands, but that should not matter. I wanna see a goddamn black metal show, and besides, you can’t even understand the lyrics, and the crowd at most underground metal shows in Los Angeles is going to be predominantly Mexican.

After we were done recording the episode, we learned that the show had to be moved from its original venue to Bricks bar and grill. A few ANTIFAs DID show up and made fools of themselves. One of them held up a sign that said something like, “Nazi metal makes Satan bored.” I ran up to him and put my arm around him, and my buddy snapped a photo and said, “Say soy boy!” Now, of course, they’re trying to ruin Bricks for putting on the gig by going to their Yelp page and giving them negative reviews. So, be a good mensch and give ’em some five star reviews.

After that, Rachel and I take an unexpected detour down memory lane, talking about the Grand Rapids and Muskegon punk scenes and all the people we know. Then I talk about the new Motley Crue biopic, The Dirt and the Deplorable Comedy tour. And in the second half of the show, we answer questions.

For Sounds of Marshabaloosh, I celebrate the Green New Deal by playing “Technophobia” by Carnivore, the awesome hardcore/metal/thrash band fronted by Peter Steele before he started Type O Negative.

Corey Wilson does the art, and the song at the end is “The Diet Has Failed” by the Yesticles.

Savage Hippie Podcast Episode 63 – If I Knew Then How Much I’d Value Intelligence Less Than Looks…

me_rachel_elya_beto_ruth

Too much news, too little time. In spite being recorded merely DAYS ago, we’re ALREADY behind, what with Michael Avenatti getting indicted and Jussie Smollett getting his charges dropped with possible connections to Barack Obama and his husband Michelle. Instead Elya, Rachel, and I discuss the New Zealand church shooter, the Mueller report and its exoneration of President Trump, Beto O’Rourke’s relative coolness, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s oldness, the last of which would seem like a rather passe and rote topic by this point, except that Sam Adams decided to RELEASE A BEER IN HER HONOR. That’s right, a Ruth Bader Ginsburg themed BEER. We also answer listener questions.

Oh, and I go off on the admins of Joe Bob Briggs FB group, because they’re totally gay for throwing me out for doing what Joe Bob does, which is crack crude jokes. But, hey, that’s what happens when you let women and their white knight enablers run a group; all of a sudden things become “problematic.” I see Troma and Feral House books getting corrupted in much the same way, with younger, progressive female employees deeming older works in both companies’ libraries “problematic” and having them expunged.

For Sounds of Marshabaloosh, we play a tune by Beto O’Rourke’s 90s indie rock band Foss, who basically sound like a poor man’s Superchunk crossed with a poor man’s Slint. Check ’em out here.

Shannon Bowman did the hip, skiddly-doo artwork, and the song at the end is “The Diet Has Failed” by the Yesticles.

Savage Hippie Podcast Episode 62 – More Like WacKKKlansman if You Ask Me!

me_rachel_elya_me_getting_lynched

The title for this episode has a double meaning. Firstly, that the KKK is totally WACK, yo! And secondly, that Spike Lee’s latest film, BlacKkKlansman (why is the middle “k” in lowercase?), which I trash in the first 25 or so minutes, totally sucks balls, and for my money was a pretty cynical attempt at getting an academy award. I mean, why ELSE would he have a sympathetic Jewish character in his movie? He hates Jews! Or, at very least, isn’t very fond of them. And, furthermore, is he NOT aware that David Duke is no longer a fan of Donald Trump, thinking him a Zionist shill, and instead now backs Ilhan Omar, someone who Spike Lee most likely ALSO backs? I believe his REAL attitude about Jews is reflected in the Philip Seymour Hoffman character in 25th Hour.

But, I digress. In the rest of the episode, Rachel and I talk about… oh just listen to it! Elya wasn’t available this time around. In the second half, we answer listener questions, one of which is about the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sex tape.

Our featured band for Sounds of Marshabaloosh this week is legendary proto-metal, heavy prog legends URIAH FUCKIN’ HEEP!!! Not caring one wink that they’re a club act, who play in dinky ass bars like the Token Lounge, where I saw ’em last year (!!!), they have a new album called Living the Dream, which shows that legacy acts can still bring it. I play the track “Take My Soul Away.” Listen to the song and check out the nifty music video here.

The wonderful artwork, in which Rachel and Elya gawk as the KKK lynch me, was done by Shannon Bowman. The song at the end is, as usual, the Yesticles classic “The Diet Has Failed.”

Savage Hippie Podcast Episode 61 – First They Ignore, Then They Laugh at You, Then They Fight You, Then They FUCK You!

me_aoc_ilmar

As my favorite racist Gandhi said, first they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, and then you win. Well, let’s be honest here; the Dissenter app from GAB is INSANE. It allows you to comment on anything on the internet. And, sure, right now it’s in its gestation phase; but wait until there are copycat Dissenter apps, and they allow you to add graphics, sound, and videos. The internet will be like the wild west again. And that’s why I’m torn with regards to Silicon Valley tech censorship; do I want the government to step in and bust up the monopolies of Facebook and Youtube, or do I want the anarchists to create apps, which will circumvent all of the deplatforming that’s been going on and reinforce that free market spirit? Tough questions indeed.

Anyway, Elya, Rachel, and I also discuss the new Captain Marvel movie, and thanks to viewer questions, we go on a long tirade bashing nu-metal. We also address the Andrew Yang phenomenon, something that I personally don’t have very much interest in. All that talk about “acceleration” works well in your parents’ basement, but if you’ve got bills to pay, and you DON’T want your life to suck, maybe, JUST maybe, you should stick with the current President and try to guide him in the right direction. First step is to pressure him to sign executive orders to end DACA and birthright citizenship. Aaaanyway…

For Sounds of Marshabaloosh, I present a song from the new Nik Turner album, The Final Frontier (I wish he chose a title that wasn’t already taken by Iron Maiden), called “Calling the Egyptians.” With Nik Turner, along with anything Hawkwind, it’s always a first day or pre-order purchase. And, yes, it’s cool that Beto O’Rourke used the screen name “Psychedelic Warlord.” Listen to “Calling the Egyptians” here.

Savage Hippie Podcast Episode 60 – More Like Lords of GAYos If You Ask Me!

jussie_smollett_savage_hippie

Rachel, Elya, and I talk about the Lords of Chaos movie, which if the title isn’t a dead giveaway, I thought sucked ass. Then we talk about the recent John Wayne controversy. And then in the second half, we answer listener questions.

For Sounds of Marshabaloosh, we play a “Nekromantia” by Horna, both because I’ve been listening to a lot of black metal lately, and because I’m seeing ’em live on March 30th. Woot!

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