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.

Show Notes

Thanks to Kornflake, we now know that Febuary 9 is National Toothache Day.

Kevin recently read Not Taco Bell Material by Adam Carolla and Kicking and Dreaming by Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart.


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?

Apparently, chicken wing prices have reached a record high, which may explain why this massive chicken wing robbery occured. And where did those wings end up? The world may never know.
