When I’m sitting on the floor with Baby Hoagie each night watching the Simpsons or South Park (Baby Hoagie’s two favorite shows) I’m always freaked out at the movie advertisements that are so violent. Guns, mayhem, horror movies, it gets really gruesome. Now I don’t have anything against this type of entertainment for those that enjoy it, it’s just that when I’m watching cartoons with my 10 month old, I just don’t expect scenes of torture, death, screaming etc. Baby Hoagie wrinkles up that little baby face and looks at me and says, like, is everything OK?
Well instead of freaking out about it, Baby Hoagie and I decided to just join the idiots with a set of killer tunes, so here’s a fun filled set of music about guns, violence and homicide. Hey if you can’t beat them, join ‘em. I mean, most parents would wonder why I let my kid watch South Park, so I guess it’s all based on one’s individual perspective. I guess the reason I allow it, is that the kid loves Cartman, and obviously is upset by scenes of bloody murder and screaming. Ah pop culture…
So get out your big guns, flash a few gang signs, and enjoy our image enhanced podcast of killer tunes.
There is something special about the breed of folk from the state of Maine. Whether or not you have been up north or down east as they like to say, Maine is special for so many different reasons. Partly because of the untouched wilderness, refreshing coastal breeze, delicious produce and sea food, the people are hard working, resilient trust worthy people. Everyone loves Vacationland.
Portland Maine tends to be very punk rock, and some of the bands that come out of Portland are top notch entertainment. When you have winters as long as those folk, there is very little else to do but learn an instrument and form a band. The music scene in Maine is amazing, and any weekend one can go out and catch some great local talent tearing it up at some dingy dive.
My favorite group to come outta Portland Maine is Jordan Kratz and The Gorehounds. The song they are sharing with us today is Crazy Fate. Later on Gorehounds reformed as Big Meat Hammer, but any band lead by front man Jordan is a must see. The mayhem that occurs when ever this guy hits the stage is mandatory viewing as far as I’m concerned. Be sure to check out Jordan’s page on Portland Punk History at: BigMeatHammer.com – it’s huge!
Ghost Walks was at one time Maine’s longest running band, and still might be for all I know. For over 12 years they played local venues opening up for The Ramones, Concrete Blonde, Romeo Void, and BB Buele and The Gargoyles. Beth Blood fronts this Punk/Goth Portland Maine based band, and tonight we play their title track song from their CD, Home.
Sonny Probe amuses us all with his song about a 60 foot rock he found in the woods. I’ve seen these here and there on hikes. I always assumed rocks like that were from glaciers. Sonny’s tune, Aurora Erratic explains it all in layman’s terms for us all.
Head Cleaner finishes the set with Time To Go. If you are a Dan Hanrahan fan, be sure to check out this super heavy tune, as Danny’s guitar really rips on this one!
I lived in New York City during the last half of the 90′s where I met a whole pile of amazing talented folk. New York is so much fun because it attracts so many creative people. Any where you go, you are surrounded by people, and you are always bound to make a new friend at any turn. It’s the friendliest place I’ve ever lived.
I start off our city-sized image enhanced podcast with Gwen Snyder’s band, Blueberry, with Onlyness, the first track from her CD titled Twilight. Be sure to check out more of Gwenny’s great music at her nifty Flash animated web site: BlueberryLounge.com
We have another installment of Frank’s Depression. This time it’s New York City parts 2 & 3. I just love Frank’s Depression Poetry. Great stuff.
Future Chicken Farmers rock our broadcast with Seed Your Clouds. This band used to practice in the basement of the place I lived during my time in NY. Every time I hear this stuff, it really takes me back to those good times.
Mitchell Vaillant (everyone’s favorite New York City Cab Driver), does a live rendition of his song titled, Lockerbie. This is from Mitchell’s Valentine’s Day performance at the Collective Unconscious.
Whether you live in New York City, or are far away and you miss New York City, or if you have never even been to New York City, enjoy the next few minutes via podcast in the Big Apple!
Because Blogger and iTunes only displays 7-10 posts, every now and then I like to replay an early podcast so our new listeners can get in on the fun.
The first time I ever tasted a Poodle Turds Cookie, I was hooked for life. Since then I have ordered several bags for various occasions. There is nothing more fun than going to a party, and putting a bag of Poodle Turds Cookies down on the table, and just kick back and watch the fun.
The cookies are delicious chocolate oatmeal, so they do not last too long. The funny thing is, most of the time people will eat one or two, then when they realize how good they are, they return to the bag to read the brand so they could get more. When they see the logo of the smiling mascot “Buttons” on the Poodle Turds package, well, the reactions are exactly what you would expect.
The cookies are made from the finest ingredients, and no turds are actually used, so it’s all good fun. Be sure to check out their web site at PoodleTurds.com and get a couple bags for the next party you attend. It will be the talk of the town for sure.
So enjoy this repeat broadcast that also has Huckaloogie and Frank’s Depression as well as the Poodle Turds smiling mascot Buttons. Be sure to listen using iTunes so you see the images in our enhanced podcast.
I’m always so happy when I go to the local shops and see the first Halloween decorations on display. Ahhh Fall, it’s got to be the best part of the year. Perfect breezy days, cool crisp air, trees turning color. I love it.
I have a huge collection of Halloween Music. Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I collect music, so it only makes sense that I’d have a lot of Halloween Music in my collection.
If you love Halloween, I have a bunch of great links for you to enjoy, as well as an image enhanced podcast of some of my favorite Halloween Songs.
First up is Mark Harvey from Nobody Records and 13thTrack.com doing an original tune titled, It’s Halloween. Mark is even more of a Halloween enthusiast than me, and that’s saying something. He owns the largest on line collection of Halloween Music at his site 13thTrack.com – be sure to check his site out, it’s sooooo cool!
After Mark’s song, my good friend Mitchell Vaillant performs All Hallows Eve with a cast of thousands. Even Bella Lagosi makes a cameo just to add spooky atmosphere.
Rain Station has a nifty CD of Halloween Party Songs they recorded titled: Dark Ride. I play a track titled Trick or Treatin’ which really captures the old fashioned ritual of Trick or Treating I grew up with. Gosh I miss those good old days. The Dark Ride CD also has a few of it’s songs animated at the way cool Flash site, JackOLantern.org – so be sure to watch the fun cartoons at this site to get in the Halloween mood.
I moved from Portland Maine to Baltimore Maryland in 1982 to attend college at Maryland Institute of Art. Baltimore is an amazing place. It has a dark old world feel to it. You gotta love east coast cities for the old brick buildings. The town is full of some of the most creative people I have ever met, and living there really inspired me.
Baltimore is famous for it’s kitschyness. John Waters and his movies have made Baltimore even more famous for it’s big hair, big lips, big… everything.
Baltimore also has a bizarre darker side. It’s very witchy and full of weird voodoo shops and the like. I met more witches, urban druids, Wiccans, neoists, Subgenius, and other intense cosmic folk in Baltimore than any other place I’ve ever lived. It seems to draw a lot of different spiritual folk to it’s all night orange glow. I believe that the orange glow is from the high pressure sodium lights that keep the streets lit at night, but I’ve never seen another city glow quite like Baltimore.
I met many musicians during my four years in Baltimore. Today’s image enhanced podcast captures some of the amazing talent that was going on around me at this time. The All Mighty Senators bring down the house with Race Car. The amazing Liz Downing and Lambs Eat Ivy whip out the Tibetan Book of The Dead for some song writing inspiration with their delightful ditty, Serpentine. My buddy Mitchell Vaillant and I also met at art school, so last, but not least on our Baltimore podcast is his home recorded tune: Chapel.
If you ever get the chance be sure to visit the Baltimore Aquarium, it is by far one of the most amazing places on earth. I remember late at night hiking down Charles Street just to visit the seals that live in the moat that surrounds the aquarium’s glass pyramid rain forest.
Well, before I go on and on forever, here’s the podcast. Enjoy!
Due to being added to the iTunes Podcast Directory under the Music and Comedy categories, we have received a lot of new listeners over night. This little mp3 is here as a greeting for all the new ‘Super Fans’ out there. Thank you all so much. Podcasting is exciting because anyone can now broadcast their own show, and I’m amazed at how global our listeners already are. Our web stats show that people as far away as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Korea are all listening to The Super Fantastic Ultra Show! WOW is all I can say.
Our podcast host, Hoagie Malone, over the past 30 years has archived a gigantic amount of home recordings by many different bands, artists, comedians, spoken word poets, and other freaks and weirdos. Home recording and demo music tends to be a lot more raw than music industry releases, and more and more people are beginning to appreciate music that is made by real people with low budgets all for the love of doing what they do. Podcasting is perfect for broadcasting just this sort of thing, because you’d never hear it anywhere else.
Our podcast ranges from old punk rock, progressive, alternative, hip hop, country, or just plain strange. (Home recordings can get quite weird, and well, we love it). If you are the kind of person that enjoys hearing artists creating audio just for the fun of it, then you should find this podcast rather amusing and entertaining.
Most of our podcasts are image enhanced, so be sure to enjoy our show using iTunes so you don’t miss out on the nifty photos, images, comics, and web links included on each image enhanced podcast. Thanks again for joining us. For information on how to subscribe to our podcast, please click here.
Here it is Labor Day Weekend, so I wanted to be sure and put together a fun party mix of good time drinking music. Man oh man, where did the summer go? Better have some fun now before the winter winds begin to blow cold…
We start out with a great CD I just got in the post from Miles Partridge with the track: tequila. It rocks. Be sure to check out his web site. The Miles Partridge CD is great from start to finish. It’s amazing to live in a time when people can self produce music of this caliber. Gotta love real indie music. Somebody sign this guy already… c’mon.
Next up is a blast from the past I just know will amuse you. Punk rock from 1982 with the band, T2. They do a great cover of the song, Banned From The Pubs. After that Rain Station slips in with a 4-track recording called Bull Whiskey that totally rocks in a very sloppy drunken sort of way. Party hearty you guys!
We end the podcast with a soothing night cap from Mitchell Vaillant titled: Tapping On My Window. Be sure to check out Mitchell’s web site at ThisCanFree.com for more of Mitchell’s music – all the way from New York City to you.
Bands – Musicians – Comedians – Send us your CD and be heard on The Super Fantastic Ultra Show. What the heck – it’s free publicity for you and some new content for our podcast! For complete details click here. And now – on with the show!
I saw my first UFO hovering over the White Mountains of New Hampshire in the early 90′s. I was working at a summer camp teaching arts and crafts. I was returning after a day off late one night, and way off in the distance I noticed a strange light in the sky. It was triangular, and each point blinked a different color one at a time. Over and over it blinked, yet hovered in place just over Mount Washington.
I sat in the grass and watched for a while, and then it moved to a different place, and continued hovering and blinking. I decided to wake up a buddy of mine to get a second opinion. He was like, “do you know what time it is…” and I go, yeah, but there’s a UFO outside, and I thought you’d like to see it. The two of us climbed out onto the main lodge roof, and sat for several hours watching the blinking lights in the sky. He was glad I woke him. He said he had always wanted to see a UFO, and that if they landed, he would gladly get in and go with them. I agreed.
Over the summer we would see them from time to time. Sometimes there would be many all at once. We even informed the local police, and they told us to phone them the next time we see these mysterious lights in the sky. Well, we did, and they came out, sat in the field with us for about two hours, and we all watched the UFOs dance and hover over these great mountains. No one knew anything about them. The cops made a few phone calls. No, they were not weather balloons, or anything else identifiable. They later told us they received calls about them for the rest of the summer.
The White Mountains are famous for UFO sightings, and we have all heard of the married couple that were abducted and had strange medical tests done on their bodies, well, they were driving through the White Mountains when this happened to them, so the area is just crawling with little green men and space aliens.
I also believe that most UFO sightings are experimental military craft that is top secret, so the UFOs we saw that summer could have just been that. I also believe that the technology is from space craft that have crashed to the earth, and our scientists are using the alien technology to build these military space ships.
So there you have it, a nifty image enhanced podcast with little green men, space ships, and brilliant UFOs. Kick back and enjoy all you sci-fi fans!
