Welcome to Nooks and Crannies!

Sidebars (Paul, the Good Person): Just Politically Checking in, or Georgia on His Mind 2.0 with #BLM

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome back folks, Strength and Solidarity in wherever your Struggle may be.

#Blacklivesmatter #Solidarity

What you are about to hear is two good friends checking in on one another, one from Georgia *we start here, the other a self-satisfied Canadian (me).

This is a very political conversation touching on all the topics, with a special focus on Georgia and COVID before digging fairly deep into the #BLM demonstrations and activism that has occurred. Because we live within intersectional times and these are intersectional political issues (translation: complex and mutually informing factors) I would say, listen, hit share if you like, and check out the links below (these will change every episode)

:::::::::::::::   

We have a Part 2 that covers Canadian First Nations issues (Indigenous Peoples in Canada) as a way of comparison to the exploitative treatment that Black peoples have experienced in the US; ending on a lighter note about weight loss and wellness, with a surprise body dysmorphic conversation.

Sidebars (Comrade Heather): The Green Party, Howie Hawkins/Angela Walker and the Unification of the Left

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome back folks, hope all are well and like me, learning a lot.

#Blacklivesmatter #Solidarity

*This was another that was recorded before the death of George Floyd, FYI

Comrade Heather from New Jersey Revolution Radio (https://njrevolutionradio.com/) and Wine Women and Revolution (https://njrevolutionradio.com/wine-women-revolution/) rejoins us for Round 3, with Evan!! And we are talking the US Green Party, their Presidential Candidate Howie Hawkins (https://twitter.com/HowieHawkins), their electoral chances, strategy and the Unification of the Left.

Heather conducted a thought-provoking and enducing interview with Mr. Hawkins, I would encourage you all to check it out..it was, lets just say, a breath of fresh-air in the fraught polemic times we find ourselves enmeshed:

Welcome to Episode 49 of Nooks and Crannies!

Second Place Confederate Trophy Cases and the Racialization of American Life with Moxie la Mouth, from Your Brain on Facts

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

What you are aboot to hear is the middlish section of Matt’s chat with Moxie. We take a sudden and unexpected “Left Hand Turn” (take a swig) and start talking US politics!!

**We were recording this 2 weeks after the death of George Floyd and suffice to say, the situation changed by the time you are hearing this.**

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome Folks, our guest this time *and newest signee of the incredibly binding yet woefully under-compensated Nooks and Crannies pod-contract, Moxie Labouche from Your Brain on Facts (http://yourbrainonfacts.com/); the most trivial in all the best ways, podcast out there.

N&C Bonus Points if you listen to Matty’s pre-record on the Chinampas of Mexico!

:::::::::::

TOPICS: Hold onto your ears, buds, there are a lot (see below for all the links)

- Confederate Statues in Richmond VA, their Monumental status and symbolic meanings A’La C. Geertz actually *Meaningless Bonus Points for knowing who that is..I’m such a dork folks ;-)

- How symbolic meanings morph over time meaning different things to “different people” and Idol Worship (biblical-style)

- Stigmatized and Underrepresentation within a marginalized community *Trans-People of Colour, 3rd mention on the pod…Please Support The Okra Project:

https://www.theokraproject.com

- A helpful way to give back to the community by being a Social Media, Ignoramus Honky Re-Education Specialist! Followed by a whole host of Youtube video’s (below) which will help the entire White Community with nuanced first-hand, experientially based, information about Black Culture and the politics that define.

- Random learning moment about the “Creoleization” of African American names followed by a nuanced discussion about White Privilege and a really honest moment from Moxie. I respect that you shared that, well done new Buddy!

- We then do a rather deep dive into the “Pop Cultural” representations of African American’s in film and TV, and how this actively perpetuates Racial Tropes that are particular to the American Context and Experience.

- All in the Family (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_in_the_Family) – Best show ever and Blazing Saddle’s (1974) are both discussed, asking: could/should these be made now?

- Weirdly “The Jews” come up momentarily, as do the Mennonites and Amish, then the liminality of race and ethnicity and Whoopi Goldberg!

- Moxie is my new favorite :-)

Welcome to Episode 48 of Nooks and Crannies!

Comrade Heather: Gendered Alienating Patriarchical Presidential Politics with Dick Pics, and Evan!

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Howdy Folks, hope you are well as you are demanding justice and your basic civil liberties, know that Evan and I are standing with you in Solidarity, Peace be with Ya’all

(Originally Recorded): Before the Death of George Floyd, please note so you do not think we just glossed over this..Evan and Matty will be recording our "Big Episode" on Policing, Racism and et al. this weekend.

*** Next episode published will be with Moxie from Your Brain on Facts and we get into these tensions and politics in that: http://yourbrainonfacts.com 

*****This is Part 2 of our third round with Heather from Wine Women and Revolution and the NJ Revolution Radio network, the first part is all about the American Green Party and Electoral minutia/reform; which is based off the amazingly thought-provoking interview Heather did with Green US Presidential Candidate Howie Hawkins:

https://njrevolutionradio.com/podcast/an-interview-with-presidential-candidate-howie-hawkins/

In Classic Nooks and Crannies fashion, Matty forces a sudden lefty turn and brings up the fact that both Trump and Biden are woefully unqualified to run and basically WTF are American’s going to do??

Topics Include: in order for a change…

- That they are both documented notorious liar’s with their own “Lame-stream” media outlets that produce propaganda on their behalf

- Why Women get dick pics sent to them (its patriarchal but we dig in a bit with some Matt-Splaning) and a pro-tip from Heather on how to reply

-  Heather digs into the Marxist concept of Reproductive Capital backed by some shocking employment statistics (Marxism 201 here)

- Evan brings up David Graeber's cup analogy, so if your are playing along with the N&C drinking game, take a swig buddy! (Twitter: @davidgraeber)

- We then for some reason get into Universal Basic Income, how economies would respond, what socialism would do and how our Robot Overlords at Amazon would react…Spoiler, T2 style, better get some molten steel brewing :-(

Heather’s New Project: WORKERS

Heather, how is a very talented graphic designer, photographer and apparently video editor, has a new project that is in the very early stages, tentatively called “Worker” which seeks to challenge misnomers and stereotypes about who works and how, while also diversifying our notions of the worker and work. It will be amazing; Evan and I will keep you all in the loop while we wait with eager anticipation!

Welcome to Episode 47 of Nooks and Crannies!

Dialectical Post-Concussed Journeys of Reflexive

Embodied Self-Discovery w/Dr. Woolf

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

*******************TRIGGER WARNING******************

(21:40) Discussion of Suicidal Thoughts and Attempts **3mins worth

*********************SOUND WARNING**********************

Baby! :-) I edited as much out as I could, heads up, its about half way in for 5 mins

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome to Nooks and Crannies! This is Part 2 of a fascinating conversation that Matty was privileged to have with “The Good Doctor” Dr. Woolf (PhD. Spiritual Psych), if you missed it, here is Part 1 where Doc describes his “Big 3” concussions and how it has likely impacted his entire life:

https://nooksandcrannies.podbean.com/e/43-my-so-called-post-concussed-life-with-dr-woolf

Turns out that no matter what the over-wrought highly alienating academic term, concept or name drop that Mamoo flings his way, Dr. Woolf is able to one-up my name drop and provide a more thoughtful analysis! So lets talk dialectical phenomenological existentialism, why the eff not eh?

After scrutinizing the Mind-Body dialectic, Dr. Woolf asks Matty to describe his Ontological orientation towards the world as it relates to TBI (Traumatic Brain Injuries) and whether or not I have a grounding in faith *this guy is the best folks, seriously, might have found Evan’s replacement ;-)

After pontificating on myself for a bit, we cover both of our “Journey’s of Self-Discovery” when it comes to concussions; for Matt it was seeing the researchers from Boston University’s Concussion Legacy Foundation on Larry King Live back in 2008, Dr. Woolf recently enrolled as well, for him it was seeing his son, unfortunately, being involved in a MVA and the resulting high-level of care he received (2019) which compelled the Good Doc on his own existential journey of self discovery through mutual learning with his son and his health care professionals who practiced a huge amount of empathy *which is the “cultural change” in medicine that has happened since Boston U started their research ‘08

****Trigger Warning (21:40) Suicidal Thoughts and Actions**** We get into the Big S here, it’s a common complaint of TBI survivors that suicidal thoughts and notions, or in some cases acts of self-harm and attempts, are quite common. We discuss Dr. Woolf’s life-long struggles here for about 4 MINs.

We also discuss the relation between brain damage and pharmaceutical side-effects, especially SSRI’s *Just want to note, they don’t work for me but if you are in need of acute or long-term mental health pharmaceutical intervention, please explore this option. And to cap things off, we knee cap Mormonism a bit, and especially how it impacted his understanding of himself and the wider world around him.

Ya..we covered a lot of ground, met the guy 4 days before on FB, talked for 3 times longer than I thought and, it was so intensely thought provoking that I knew halfway through that he will be a repeat guest!

Stay tuned, and, boy Aren’t I lucky!?!

Welcome to Nooks and Crannies!

Mini: Netflixian Recommendations with Paul or Why Matt Loves Movies w/ Cannibalism!

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Howdy folks, Paul and I used this bit of the recording as a warm up before launching into the COVID/Corona Conversation, fascinating one actually:

https://nooksandcrannies.podbean.com/e/45-the-devil-went-down-to-georgia-and-paul-has-it-on-his-mind/

Basically this is exactly what it sounds like, just back and forth rapid fire style recs that you may have seen already and a few that you may have missed.

Jordan (doc) M+P

Community (TV) M+P

The Good Life (TV) P-A satirical show about heaven and the meaning of life, some of Paul’s favorite content delves into these subjects

The Platform (Indie Movie) M-Cuz he love me the taste of human flesh, but just in some circumstances…back to Don Quixote!!

Three Identical Strangers (doc) P-Compelling doc about triplets meeting each other as young adults, sounds more interesting then that folks :-)

Hell on Wheels (TV) M-Surprisingly compelling Western that delves into political themes well

Free Solo (Doc) P-Matty the coward will not see this because it made Paul say “oh, oh, my…” a few times. Try to watch on the biggest screen possible!

Bonus content at the end from Mamoo, outlining and justifying his raging Matt-Crush on fellow handsome BC boy: Ryan, I could get lost unpacking that smile for years, Reynolds!

Welcome to Episode 46 of Nooks and Crannies!

Shaming the Senators /or/ Why the Canucks are a Much Better Hockey Franchise?

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Howdy folks, in light of the need for mindless silly content that is also distracting and at times nostalgic, this might be the episode for you..But hey, I am not trying to tell you how to live your life or nothing, we are just trying to help out..geeze

Whatever, this one is all about The Vancouver Canucks and Ottawa Senators through the eyes of a Young Evan (I still don’t really know how old the guy is..) and a much younger and still more attractive Matty. Sound Drops all over the place folks, I had a lot of fun using them to tease and poke fun at my co-host.

Side Note: If you ever wanted to have a playful debate in a pub with a Canadian that has the potential to devolve into a haymaker-fest out in the parking lot outside of Moose Jaw Sask or Red Deer Alberta, this episode is essentially a blueprint to do just that!

Heard it here first folks, be well, if you do find yourself mired in such an encounter, Evan and I recommend pulling the back of their hoody over the back of their head, pinning them and their arms, then uppercuts (feeding them) until they are Spittin Chiclets.

Ya..Canada is fun at times, other times we simply riot because our team lost a game! **Vancouver Riots, Future episode for sure!

Be Well, Stay Safe, Talk to you all soon and aren’t we lucky?

Welcome to Episode 45 of Nooks and Crannies!

The Devil went Down to Georgia, and Paul has it on His Mind

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Howdy Folks, want a break from COVID talk? Well, this aint the Episode for you!

Neither are these ones:

EP 37: https://nooksandcrannies.podbean.com/e/37-cuban-corona-viruses-flowing-out-of-libertarian-fountainheads/

EM: https://nooksandcrannies.podbean.com/e/em-19-flavors-of-covid-with-heather-from-njrr/

Or

EP 39: https://nooksandcrannies.podbean.com/e/39-ethnographic-covidian-observations-or-how-we-learned-to-love-social-distancing/

Paul and Matt kicked the recording off with a bunch of solid Netflix recommendations, this will be released next alongside a segment Evan and I did all about our favorite NHL teams and players…So stay tuned for some lighter content next.

M+P start off by having a friend check in (like the Covidian Observations Episode), then Matty starts interrogating his friend as to why Georgia’s response has been so foolish and erratic. After some further discussion on that state, the fellers reluctantly start talking Trump and the Federal “response” and some of the wider National issues **armed militia’s and conspiracy theorists unholy alliance** then end on a lighter note talking food, cooking and how Paul is a very luck boy to be married to Amanda!

**PS. Congrats from Nooks and Crannies to Amanda for passing (with flying colours mind you) her Optometry Dispensing Exams. Paul explained to me both how challenging this process can be, how amazing you did (effortless I think is how he described it) and of course how proud he is of you! Good Job By You!!

Be Well Folks, Aren’t we Lucky and We will talk at you Real Soon! Much Love

Welcome to Episode 44 *Matt’s Favorite Number

of Nooks and Crannies!

Part 3 Zombies: Existentialist Zombies with Imperialistic Ambitions!

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome to the merciful conclusion of what turned out to be a 2 hr plus trip down the rabbit hole of Matty’s biggest phobia: ZOMBIES!

Part 1: Minisode: Historical Analysis of Why Matty is so Afraid of Zombies with Chris and Paul

Part 2: Zombie Movies: Racialized Others and Why they justifiably want to Eat our Brains!

We begin by discussing a game Chris has hardly played, yet is the most popular Zombie video game of all time and has spawned the most sequels, Resident Evil! After we make fun of the guy for this for a bit, we jump over to a movie that is firmly in Matty’s top 7 of all time: 28 Days Later.  

We totally glossed over Sean of the Dead, I heard it was great and funny, I only got 11 mins in and once I saw the first zombie (some girl-child) I was all like: Nope, Done, I’m out..and that was in front of Melly. What I am saying folks, I don’t like zombies…but I do L.O.V.E. Shoehorning in overly complicated academic terminology as a pathetic way for me to feel better than myself, at the expense of friends of course…Existentialism is the study of existence or consciousness (lived experience), Phenomenology is the study of perception and how that impacts experience. I am such a dick eh? <-Should not be a question…

Anyway, we bang around some ideas for a bit and then painfully wrap things up after a grueling 2hr long sesh.

Aren’t we Lucky? And I look forward to talking at Ya’all soon! And trashing America of course..be well folks.

Welcome to Episode 43 of Nooks and Crannies!

43 - My So Called Post-Concussed Life with Dr. Woolf

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome to a reflexively fascinating episode of Nooks and Crannies

Matty had the privilege of chatting with Dr. Woolf (PhD Spiritual Psych, Musician, Father, super intelligent, oh ya, he has also sustained many Concussions! Capt. Concussion and Admiral Noggin Knock go down a reflexive journey recounting his concussions, how the medical field did or more often than not, did not recognize or validate his brain injuries, why its important to not get smoked in the face with a bow-staff whilst on Acid, how to properly camp in Mexico and why catching a 90lb speaker with your face is the wrong approach!

At times funny, mostly morbidly fascinating, and throughout it was thought provoking, honest and revealing. Oh, this is part 1 of 2 and we will be having Dr. Woolf on again and again, wait till you hear his super professional sounding Radio Voice!

At the end we play ourselves out with the amazingly melodic Persephone from Doc Woolf music.

Welcome to Episode 42 of Nooks and Crannies!

Meaty Musical Marinades, or How/Why Matt Grew a Foot in 3 Months!?

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome to a very eclectic episode of Nooks and Crannies!

We were supposed to kick things off with three Spotify playlists:

Brain Expansion: Classical, Post-Concussed, and Apocalyptic

But instead Mamoo takes Evan along for a crazy Ivan (abrupt and unexpected left-hand turn, it’s a submarine move Matty picked up from Hunt for the Red October), and talked about our highschool dayz; including the East Coast-Westside, is the best side, Rap Battles of the mid 90s and why Evan was more pretentious than that old man hat got at Tip Top and the fact that he had to audition for his Art’s High School, would lead you to believe.

Then we get into the music, we start with Brain Expansion: Classical, where Evan calls Vi a “Basic White Girl” then we move into Matty’s Post-Concussed playlist which actually for the first time in our friendship, impressed Evan with my surprisingly relevant and artistically contemporary choices (spoiler: I plagiarized the shit out of another playlist! #winning). We cap this slap-happy segment off with my Apocalyptic playlist, which I knocked together in less than 15 mins with vi at breakfast as I was slowly loosing my mind mannnnnnnn….

Oh, hey carnivores, ever wanted to learn how to make a meat marinade? Well, hit this time stamp (24:52) to find out!

Aren’t we lucky (I know, it don’t feel this way), be well and talk to you all soon! Much Love.

Welcome to Episode 41 of Nooks and Crannies!

Zombie Movies: Racialized Others and Why they justifiably want to Eat our Brains!

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

(Originally Recorded at the end of Feb; we somehow did not mention the “Corona Virus” in relation to Zombies, speaks to how quickly things changed eh? Glad we did not make these comparisons actually…)

Be well friends, hope we can provide a nice break from reality with this bad boi!

Chris from Playcomics Podcast joins Paul our Movie Savant and Matty the co host to continue talking all about Zombies in movies! If you have not already or forget because it has been ages, feel free to give the Context (history) Episode a Listen:

https://nooksandcrannies.podbean.com/e/minisode-historical-analysis-of-why-matty-is-so-afraid-of-zombies-with-chris-and-paul/

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

We kick things off with a deepish dive on Bella Lugosi’s White Zombie (no not Rob Zombie!) a film from 1932 that sort of but not really defined the whole genre. This film defiantly reinforced the racialized tropes associated with Zombies (i.e. The Primative Dangerous Other, whom need to be contained and controlled) as does gendered tropes (women need saving), while at the same time being a masterpiece from Lugosi, the grandpappy of Horror…1/5 Stars

Next up is the 50’s Atomic Aged Zombies, especially the strip: Corpses, Coast to Coast! (http://thehorrorsofitall.blogspot.com/2008/01/corpses-coast-to-coast.html) – Ya, I screwed up the title in the recording! A atomic aged comic that was pre “code” era, which means its pretty gory and great. It also is a pure embodiment of the political and  international relational fears and anxieties of the dawn of the Cold War.

We finish up this portion with the justifiably famous and groundbreaking: Night of the Living Dead (date). This is a surprisingly political movie, as are most Zombie films, but it was fascinating to see the emphasis put on Civil Rights Era racial politics, including the famous final scene..Linked right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpPyXhRoBgo And end this round on a discussion of the sequel: Dawn of the Dead (date): https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077402/

 Next Up: I think Musical Marinades! Yum!

Welcome to Episode 40 of Nooks and Crannies!

The Secret Sauce of Wilhelm Reich with Over-Under Pod Recs to Combat Boredom

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome Back folks, we got a banger of an episode for you today!

We kick things off with a wee bit of a check in, seeing how boredom is effecting our lived experience and all that noise. (6:46) Over-Under-or-Properly Rated: Canadian Hip Hop with special guest appearances by The Rascalz (Northern Touch) and Snow-Informer!

(9:14) Wanna hear about a Whacky Genius? Wonder why your orgone meter is too low and want to know how and why this is having an effect on the weather? Well folks, step up and into the wonderful world of Wilhelm Reich; the sex-obsessed 1920s psych-analyst from Austria, who was also a commie and was eventually booted from Norway for his “extreme” methodologies and found himself in the land of the Free *to practice pseudoscience, America. Find out what that box was used for and the sick and twisted things Matty plans to do to it; but before that, watch this music video from Kate Bush: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pllRW9wETzw

(40:52) If you are like Evan and I, you are probably getting pretty bored of Netflix et al, and you have also noticed that podcasting is down 30% both in listenership and in episodes being released…what better time to recommend a bunch of pods?!

These 4 worthy inclusions all have that je na sais quoi, or as Wilhelm might phrase it: They exude Orgone and we don’t know why?

Spittin Chiclets (I want to replace R.A.!), Mouse and Weens (big fans of ours! for some reason), Florida Men on Florida Man (I want to be their friends, is that weird?) and a Bonus Shout to: I Shake my Head with Lisa and Sam!

Welcome to Episode 39 of Nooks and Crannies!

FIXED 39 - Psychosomatic Covidian Observations or How we Learned to Love Self-Isolation

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Howdy folks, just heard Waffle House is closing all locations in the South, I am very sorry to hear about your loss..things should return to normal by Easter tho..right??

This one is a little looser, it’s two friends discussing the nuances of this cray cray world we have found ourselves thrust into; we are talking self isolation, how Evan suddenly learned how to cook, Supply Chain Management and hoarding, the reaction of the public (ethnographic observations) and some ranting rhetoric about the political dimensionalities.

This is a COVID self assessment that was developed by the Province of BC, I think anyone who is concerned about themselves or others should take it and share it widely. It’s a pretty solid and fast option, helps with the Psychosomatic COVID that Matt acquired for a few hours! https://bc.thrive.health/

Welcome to Episode 38 of Nooks and Crannies!

38 – Reduxing Heather from NJRR: Intersectional Women and Weed while 2nd Amendment Nazi’s are Screwing up the Primaries, in Documentary Form  

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

(1:40) Weed Women and Wellness: When we left off with Heather the first time, she was about to host the amazing sounding Weed Women and Wellness event at a women’s health center in Cherry Hill NJ https://thewomenscenters.com/cherryhillwomenscenter/

It of course went amazing and in true indie pod fashion, she got a couple podcast episodes out of it! *Linked Below

(26:06) 2nd Amendment and Nazi’s: Based off an amazing article written by the poly-mathematically gifted Heather, we get into how Nazi’s in America have co-opted the beautiful US Sanctuary City provision and twisted it to serve their own purposes. 

(36:12) Antifa and Antifa Canada: We both proudly support ANTIFA, obviously, but what Matty has a hard time with is this shit right here: https://nypost.com/2019/10/01/video-shows-antifa-group-block-elderly-couples-path-yell-nazi-scum/

Maybe its cuz I am a “Polite Canadian” or maybe its because I understand how even one story like that can undermine a cause..so ANTIFA Canada, keep your stick on the ice and head on a swivel cuz that shit right there is all the right wing lame-stream press needs to “prove” the “silliness” of the cause. Eh!

(41:00) 3rd Parties and US Democratic Primaries: We cover vote shaming, bit on red baiting, and who Heather is planning on supporting: SPOILER, it’s the Green Party (https://www.gp.org/)!

(53:52) Easter Egg from Ms Vi: Don’t Worry folks, about a thing, cuz every little thing is gonna be alright!

(54:22) The Journey to Me (doc): Heather from New Jersey Revolution Radio, who writes, photographs, educates, podcasts, organizes and advocates, is about to add Documentary Filmmaker to already impressive Curriculum Vital. Watch the trailer after you check your bank account to see how many loonies and hopefully toonies you can throw in the direction of this extremely worthwhile and very fascinating film about LGBTQ rights as well as in general “Finding your Authentic Self”!

Emergency Minisode of Nooks and Crannies!

EM: 19 Flavors of COVID with Heather from NJRR

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome folks to a sneaky little Emergency Minisode that I pulled from Round 2 with Heather *Nooks and Crannies’ Resident Communist, from New Jersey Revolution Radio and Wine Women and Revolution. We were talking about 2nd amendment gun rights and its relation to Nazi’s and then in true Nooks and Crannies fashion, Heather throws a left hand curve ball at ol Matty and booya, we are talking about the COVID-19/Corona Virus, and in further true N&C fashion, Matty leads off the chin wag with some Americana-Bashing which he sustains throughout the little segment.

Enjoy, Next full one will be about Zombies *and weirdly we did not make any connections to Corona Virus even though it was recorded in Feb. How times have changed rapidly eh?

Welcome to Episode 37 of Nooks and Crannies!

Cuban Corona Viruses flowing out of Libertarian Fountainheads

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome back Evan, missed you buddy!

Evan kicks things off by regaling us with his Adventures in Cuba, and how he brought an unexpected souvenir back in his belly (no it was not a drug filled condom, get your head out of the gutter weirdo!). Instead he recounts how truly awful Canadian tourists can be, how all he was able to purchase was Hollandia beer and state sponsored pasta *weirdly just before hitting record he spilled a full box of dried pasta on the floor, Evan consumes an inordinate amount of Pasta folks, I might need to do another culinary segment for the guy…Sounds like it was a fascinating experience for Evan to see a real live Communist country!

https://nooksandcrannies.podbean.com/e/28-halloween-spectacular-self-immolating-sens-fans-floppy-disked-icq-chatting-making-bread-with-cod-baskets/

(16:48) For Gosh Knows eh, what reason Evan subjected himself to the Critically Lambasted (actually got a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes) Atlas Shrugged film trilogy!

From poorly acted performances, sudden changes in roles, how unlikeable everyone was and the overall poor filmmaking throughout, Folks if you love badly made movies that are also simultaneously heavy handed with its political bias, Atlas Shrugged might be your new favorite Unwatchables!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlas_Shrugged_(film_series)   

(29:48) Corona/COVID19

We end on a serious and frightening note, the COVID 19 segment based on the AMAZINGLY Terrifying episode from On The Media called Black Swans. On this episode they had Journalist Laurie Garret who is knowledgeable and experienced in covering all things Public Health and in this episode, focused in on the response by the US and concerns she has going forward. This might be one to listen to first then return to ours, but, you are the boss of you and I am not going to tell you what to do! But please, wash your hands!!

In our segment, we focus in on the political-economic-cultural landscape that is present in various countries, how this will effect the spread and response to this epidemic, the real role that the markets and supply chain management plays (Just in Time production methods) and the fragility of our economies. Matty has a background in Medical Anth but very little in epidemiology or Public Health studies, so he cobbles together what he knows and then we shifted into our standard anti-racism political economic inspired anthropological analysis’.

Anywhozydoozy, this one is a Doozy! Aren’t we Lucky? (or screwed!?)

EMERGENCY Episode of Nooks and Crannies!

Super Tuesday, Super Delegates, Oh My!

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Quick notes on this Emergency Minisode; Pete Buttigieg <- What a handle! Dropped out of the Democratic Primary race 1 Hour before Evan and Mamoo hit record on March 1st and about a week ago, everyone’s favorite Billionaire Tom Steyer also pulled out of the race; Tulsi Gabbard is still in the hunt but no one has heard from her campaign in a while, and also..folks: What’s with the names on this ballot, boy howdy Matty had to double check some spelling!

We are left with four contestants as we see it: Bernie, Warren, the Compromised Joe Biden and the Other Billionaire who has bought his place on the ballot; Michael Bloomberg former Stop and Frisk Mayor of New York who has a tonne of NDA baggage!

We both assume Bernie will win the nomination, especially if he does well in California. It is all about avoiding the Contested Convention and bringing in the Gatekeepers *AKA: Super Delegates!

Welcome to Nooks and Crannies!

Minisode: Historical Analysis of Why Matty is Afraid of Zombies with Chris and Paul

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome to a very disturbing minisode of Nooks and Crannies!

Our very own Movie Savant Paaa_uu_llL Combs reluctantly agreed to fulfill his contract and return for another round with ol Matty, and joining both of us is Chris, the Host of everyone’s favorite Video Game-Comic Book podcast Play Comics Podcast. I have been on his show twice, both times I attempted a hostile takeover, so this is Chris’ payback it seems (links to those below).

After shitting on the Fine State of Georgia and some random Magic the Gathering chatting for the benefit of Frequent Mention: DC, we get into why Chris and Paul find Zombies fascinating and the role that Steven King played in this.

Chris brought an article from Vox (Link) that covers the early history, key themes and notable (innovative) examples from film and pop culture through the 20th century (link again below). Matt highlights the existential anxieties and racialized stereotypes associated with Voodooism and Zombies, including Paul’s Purge-esque fantasies about settling some grievances.

Bringing it back to the early history of Voodoo in Haiti and how it relates to their Slave-Led Revolution; the fella’s dig into the political themes including Suspicion, fear of the Other, racialized notions, “primitiveness” v civilizational ‘advancement’ and the unique ideological Assimilation (Paul makes a great point here) between indigenous religion and US Catholic Missionaries (1915), native cultures by their colonial overlords, is eerily similar symbolically to the assimilation we see in the onrushing Zombie Hoard!!

The rest of the Episode (movies, zombies in pop culture and teasing Chris) will be out Next week as Episode 37.

Keep it Spooky folks, watch your brains!
