The Show: Futile Attempts

Any spare time we had over the Christmas and New year period was spent listening and re-listening to Kim Noble’s “Futile Attempts (at Surviving Tomorrow)” podcast – and we’re still only up to episode 6/10.

If you want a lazy half-arsed comparison think Blue Jam but, arguably, less surreal and, possibly, more mundane (with the added caveat that mundane is completely the wrong word).

Whilst we continue to struggle for the right adjective you can simply judge for yourself using the video sample below and the audio excerpts in today’s show.

High Five Hat

Humanity sucks… We all need encouragement to keep going…so I made this hat.

And on with the show…

The Show: Heavy Metal Parking Lot

Brand new Shit & Shine with an accompanying video (see above) that uses footage from the 1986 documentary Heavy Metal Parking Lot (see below).

This, in turn, has inspired the Judas Priest links in today’s show. Who knew Rob Halford was so omnipresent on MTV promos and commercials in the mid 80’s (apart from 240 million Americans, that is)? TURBO POWER!

It’s a milestone in the careers of both Donny Osmond and Elton John as they both make their full Joint debuts, independently of each other but in the same unlikeliest of circumstances (hip-hop collaborations).

Plus The Sesh is back courtesy of Clara!.

The Show: The return of Tulip Black

Lady Tulip
Lady Tulip aka Tulip Black, turning things upside down just like Diana Ross.

Her last appearance on The Joint was back in 2009 and today is the return of Lady Tulip. She’s not too pleased either after missing out on tickets to Beyoncé’s three Auckland gigs in October which means she will be playing the darkest, scariest R&B that she can find. Hold tight.
