Revolting 59

The Hard Journey of the Lone Wolf. This episode is about being alone. When we feel lonely, it can be really hard to break out of whatever melancholy shell we’ve constructed for ourselves. How do you reengage with people when you’re in that awkward place, and is the bike or skateboard a useful tool for doing that?

Music pick of the week.

Robot – Uncle Tupelo – Still Feel Gone

Stevil – Monster Magnet – Test Patterns, Volume I

    This weeks “Would you rather?” is vile either way, but I must know are the ticks still alive and could be afforded the hot sauce of my choice? Trucker bomb…that’s funny.

      Ray – No hot sauce. That’s the cruel world of would-you-rathering. And the ticks are alive.

    I’ve always thought reality TV was dumb. Survivor as I recall allowed the contestants to bring one item from the civilized world with them. I instantly thought of a bottle of hot sauce as you can eat pretty much anything with that. There are no winners with this week’s WYR then. It becomes a Jigsaw-esque mental exercise in which option would do the least damage or be the most survivable.

      Ray – The best WYRs have no good options and force you into all sorts of mental compromises and discomfort. Articulating that discomfort, I find, is comedy gold.

    Of course, Robot slapstick and puns are humor at it most simple, basic and brilliant. Reading my previous assessment I feel like I sound like Mr Spock (I just re-watched “Into Darkness”). Cold and logical, but that tracks being that I am doctor and scientist. As such, I highly recommend you Czech out the album “Poison Everything” by Obliterations. It is blistering punk hardcore that is surprisingly catchy, but somehow not poppy as is de rigueur for many bands under the punk banner.
