Flopcast 039: We Need to Complain More
Kornflake presents a ridiculous new segment called "National Whatever Day"; we confirm that there WILL be Water Aerobics in the Martian Gravity Pit at MarsCon this year; Kevin stays out way too late thanks to Adam Carolla and Niki Luparelli; we have an Amoeba Lederhosen Challenge update; a new book about the band Heart leads to a discussion of 70s music versus 80s music, as well as our thoughts on this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees (too much Randy Newman, not enough Martika); and we end with a "Chickens in the News" story from Atlanta, where 26,000 pounds of chicken wings are on the loose and ready to party.
Thanks to Kornflake, we now know that Febuary 9 is National Toothache Day.
Mention of Heart sparked a discussion of bands that spanned the pre- and post-MTV era, sometimes re-emerging with a radically different sound and look. Which do you prefer, 70s Heart or 80s Heart?
