Live from Council Bluffs... It's another episode of Goadkicker. We talk about hijacking meaning in art, the Simpsons, animal cruelty, violence, and during Nerd Church we talk stewardship and the tendency for nerds to hoard.

Thanks as always to Dischord Records for use of Nation of Ulysses' amazing music

in this LIVE episode, we talk about the need to move on from exciting things... And wonder what happens between childhood and adulthood that we loose the sense of wonder? Then we talk about me starting my own church. Lastly, I explain that I truncate the third segment so it's better served and explored. 

The episode ends with the full version of Stork by Carbon Copy Dream, the music we hear as transitions between segments. CCD is really just me from 15 years ago.

In this second half of this LIVE episode we focus entirely on the finale of the Mike Warnke story... the former self-professed Satanic practitioner and expert and Christian stand up comedian who was discovered to be a fraud. We look at what happened after the outing, and discuss the lessons we nerds can learn about character and integrity.

In this, the first half of our latest LIVE episode, we talk about stewardship and accountability when choosing WHERE we buy our nerd wares. While we are at it, we talk about a wonderful indie comic called The Magician, published by 5D Comics. The writer is David Brown and the artist is DNS (on BCWYWF issue 2 cover art fame). 

The comic can be purchased at 5dcomics.bigcartel.com 

Support indie art... and buy a copy... tell them Goadkicker sent you. 

5D comics are on twitter and facebook as well, track them down!

 

Thanks as always to Dischord Records for the use on Nation of Ulysses music!

On this LIVE episode of Goadkicker we talk about the hypocritical way I stumble around the issues of zoos, eating meat, and guns. Then we look at how Valiant comics is schooling everyone on how to manage a continuity, and how wonderful their summer event 4001 AD was. Lastly we get into part one of the crazy story of Mike Warnke... a Christian comedian and evangelist that was a driving force behind the Satanic panic of the 80's and was found to be a fraud. When do we "believe" in something because of what it is versus WHO is selling it to us? What happens when that WHO is a phony?

 

Thanks as always to Dischord Records for allowing us to use Nation of Ulysses music as our intro and outro... but their stuff!

in this hastily conceived LIVE episode we apologize for being too real, expose my hip hop fandom, talk about Hip Hop Family Tree, and dissect the four stages of fandom. Thanks forever to Dischord records for allowing use of Nation of Ulysses music. 

 

Next episode will be our special 18th coming of age!
