There Are Other Podcasts? – Your Mom's House

There Are Other Podcasts?
We know you are loyal fans, that would never ever listen to another podcast. Just in case you were curious about other podcasts (which we know you aren’t), “There Are Other Podcasts?” will review some of the podcasts that we think are fun and interesting, but not as fun and interesting as our podcast of course. If you would like us to give you a listen shoot us an email at: outsidethelongbox@gmail.com
Your Mom’s House with Christina P. and Tom Segura – http://www.yourmomshousepodcast.com/
 
So if you are a fan of Thinking Outside the Longbox (which if you aren’t weird, and how did you end up here), you are probably a fan of jokes about wieners and poop. You probably think that those kinds of jokes are hilarious (and if you don’t…again really weird). So if you want to hear some sex jokes about ball hogs told by two hilarious comedians that are often joined by their comedian friends than you need to start listening to Your Mom’s House.
Christina Pazsitzky (yep, that is why she goes by Christina P.) and her husband Tom Segura spend their time talking about their lives, the shows that they like to watch (current favorite seems to be Age Gap Love), and crazy videos that they find on the internet; all the while riffing brilliantly comedic. With their self proclaimed “7th Grade” brand of humor they are like listening to a couple of your asshole friends be pricks about the crap they found on YouTube.
Add into the equation interviews with other comedians and you end up with a show that is pretty much as good as ours (not quite of course) with a very similar comedic tone. This show is a blast with the kind of vulgarity that we have all come to love. Check this out, the humor here is spot on, and if you haven’t heard of these two, you will walk away fans.

You Listen To What? – Follow Up Bands Pt. 2

You Listen To What? Follow Up Bands Pt. 2
Gabe listens to some weird ass kinds of music, and he would love you to hear it too. Weekly Gabe will share a playlist of some genre of music that you may or may not have heard of. Give it a listen and then give us a call. Did you love it or hate it let us know on the Michael Kurk Memorial Hotline at 970-573-6148

So as promised here is the second part of the follow up bands! This has been a really fun exercise in digging into bands that broke up and went on to be other bands (some even better than their previous incarnations). Last week I gave you five bands and the bands that splintered off of them. This time I got really deep into two bands, Inside Out and Operation Ivy. Unfortunately I ran out of time to write the whole article even though I managed to get the playlist done. So lucky you, you get to hear what came from those two bands. So lets dive in to Inside Out.
Inside Out – Shelter – Soundgarden – Rage Against the Machine – Audioslave – One Day As A Lion – Tom Morrello: The Nightwatchmen – Street Sweeper Social Club – Zach de la Rocha – Prophets of Rage
In the late 80’s two bands were being formed. Inside Out fronted by singer and lyricist Zach de la Rocha and Soundgarden fronted by Chris Cornell. Inside Out was a spiritually focused hardcore band that broke up when guitarist Vic DiCara left the band to become a Hare Krishna monk (and later went on to be in two Krishna conscious bands 108 and Shelter). Zach de la Rocha went on to form one of the biggest bands of the 90’s: Rage Against the Machine.

Soundgarden in the mean time was becoming one of the most important grunge bands. Through their time growing in Seattle until they were signed with A&M Records they were cultivating a sound that would help to define and entire genre of music and change the face of radio and indie rock at the same time. The continued to make albums all the way through 2011, but Cornell went on to be in other bands.

As Soundgarden was creating grunge, Rage Against the Machine was creating their own version of rap-metal. Hyper political and with a brand new way of approaching guitar work via Tom Morello. Much like the rapid success that Soundgarden was having Rage Against the Machine’s self titled debut album went triple platnum. After just four albums the band broke up and Morello and the other members of the band went on to form Audioslave with Chris Cornell as singer.
 
From there the track turns into several projects from Zach de la Rocha and Tom Morello. De la Rocha went on to do some singles with people like KRS-One, as well as putting out an album called One Day as a Lion. Tom Morello went on to some solo work as Tom Morello: The Nightwatchmen, as well as being in Street Sweeper Social Club. He then moved on to being in super group Prophets of Rage with original members of Rage Against the Machine, Chuck D of Public Enemy, and B-Real of Cypress Hill.
As you can see in the playlist there are a lot more bands but you will just have to wait until next week to read about them. You can listen to them right now though! Enjoy and see you next week with the track that came from Operation Ivy!

New Comics for April 4th 2018

April is here and man is this month HUGE with new releases! Plus we are a month away from Free Comic Book Day! Anyhow, lets jump right in and get to this weeks books!
From Dark Horse this week, Frank Miller returns to the world of 300 with Xerxes Fall of the House of Darius #1 (of 5). Persian King Xerxes sets out to conquer the world to avenge his father Darius’s defeat and create an empire unlike anything the world has ever seen . . . Until the hardy Greeks produce a god king of their own, Alexander the Great. Frank Miller writes and draws this long-awaited companion to his masterpiece, 300!

From DC this week, Batman #44 hits the stands with a story called “something Blue” written by Tom King with art by Mikel Janin. Follow Batman and Catwoman on two separate but parallel paths as their wedding planning kicks into high gear. Selina picks out her dress, and Bruce starts to make arrangements for their new life together-but this being Gotham City, and they being Batman and Catwoman, you can bet that nothing will go as expected!

Also this week, the New Age of Heroes grows with Curse of Brimstone #1. Written by Justin Jordan with art by Phillip Tan. Joe Chamberlain would do anything to save his small, forgotten town-even make a deal with the devil. But things get worse, and Joe finds himself cursed with the power of BRIMSTONE. With the power of fire and destruction coursing through his hands, Joe must now track down and destroy the demon he made his deal with before the power he now wields destroys the town he was trying to save. But as the fiery pain inside him grows, can this young man overcome his own demons before his power rips him apart from the inside out?

Lastly, in Deathstroke #30 this week, the six issue story arc “Deathstroke Vs. Batman” begins! When Batman discovers a mysterious package containing DNA test results proving that he is not Damian Wayne’s biological father, the Dark Knight sets his sights on his son’s true father-Deathstroke! But Damian Wayne can’t really be Slade Wilson’s son-can he? And who sent the package-and why? The ultimate custody battle ensues as the World’s Greatest Detective and the World’s Deadliest Assassin clash in this instant classic!

From IDW this week, Sonic the Hedgehog is back! SONIC’S RACING INTO A NEW ADVENTURE! After defeating the evil Dr. Eggman’s latest plot, Sonic is racing around the world to shut down the robotic Badnik forces that are still attacking villages. But it’s a big job for one person-even Sonic the Hedgehog! Fortunately, he’ll have some help from his best friend: Tails!

From Image this week, a new series from writer Gerry Duggan and artist David O’Sullivan hits shelves called Analog. Five years from now: the security of the internet has been totally destroyed. Secrets are no longer sent over the web, they’re entrusted to armed couriers called “Ledger Men,” like human punching-bag Jack McGinnis. He’s got a gun in one hand and a briefcase handcuffed to the other. Danger lurks around every corner, and Jack has to watch his back-because he had a part in the cyber attack that changed the world. Get in on the ground floor of this new ongoing series and thrill as we slam Jack’s fist into the faces of spies, mercs, fascists, and eventually less punchable adversaries like a very grumpy artificial intelligence.

Also debuting this week is Brenden Fletcher and Karl Kerschl’s new book Isola, a breathtaking fantasy adventure two decades in the making! The captain of the Royal Guard has fled the capital city with the Queen of Maar, suffering under the effects of an evil spell. Captain Rook’s only hope of returning Queen Olwyn to her throne and saving the kingdom from impending war lies on an island half a world away-a place known in myth as Isola, land of the dead.

Lastly from Image this week, Spawn #284 hits the stands written by Todd McFarlane with art by Jason Shawn Alexander and a beautiful cover by Francesco Mattina. This issue features the re-creation of Spawn’s arch villain The VIOLATOR with a new look and new powers!

From Marvel this week, Amazing Spider Man swings in with the Marvel confirmed first appearance of the Red Goblin! Dan Slott’s final SPIDER-MAN story continues! The GREEN GOBLIN HAS RETURNED – and he’s exacting his ultimate revenge not only on SPIDER-MAN, but on everyone the wall-crawler loves! Norman Osborn’s offering NO QUARTER, an ultimatum that threatens to finish PETER PARKER once and for all!

Also from Marvel this week, Venomized #1 hits stands written by Cullen Bunn with art by Iban Coello. The story that began in VENOMVERSE reaches its epic conclusion with VENOMIZED! The POISONS, a species that hungers for super-powered symbiotes and their hosts, have picked their next target…THE MARVEL UNIVERSE ITSELF! Their first objective? Put every superhuman in a Klyntar symbiote – and CONSUME THEM! But with VENOM and the X-MEN still missing after the events of “Poison-X,” the planet, and its heroes, is defenseless!

Comic Cons – don't always believe what you read!

Hello everyone!! It’s been brought to our attention that there have been some weird rumors (April fools jokes) going on about Denver Comic Con. I won’t further disseminate the rumor, but we thought it’d be a good time to at least bring up the topic.

No matter what Comic Con you’re going to attend, there are ALWAYS rumors!

  • Guests – There are ALWAYS rumors that comic cons purposefully announce guests, knowing that they either don’t have them secured yet, or that they will cancel. Things change, there are ALWAYS going to be cancellations. Conventions take into account that these guests are busy people, and that plans might change for them in the future. Try not to go to a comic con, for just one guest, or one thing. You may buy your ticket, and things may change. Remember that “celebrities” are always taking new jobs, or schedules are always changing. It’s the nature of what they do.
  • Bans – Each comic con has their own policy guide on what is acceptable and what isn’t acceptable to bring into the convention center. Just in the last couple of years there have been MANY changes to these policies because of what is going on in the world. In this case, there are actually rules written down, or posted somewhere. If someone tells you that something is banned, before you start attacking the event, do some research, and look it up. Is it just a rumor that someone started? Did you reach out to the event to see if it was true?

Those are just a couple of the weird rumors that we hear throughout the year, about our favorite shows! At the end of the day, make sure that you’re smart about things. If it didn’t come from the event page, or someone associated with it, do you think it’s legit? Don’t believe the propaganda just because someone wrote about it, or someone posted it somewhere! Reach out to the people who you know are actually involved, or find the “contact us” email on the convention website.
And remember to always have fun!

On the Horizon – Bram Stoker's Dracula, Grave Diggers Union

On The Horizon
Week to week we receive emails from comic book companies of all stripes. Taking those we present you with the things that we think will be the most interesting to you the listeners. If you have any news or announcements that you would like to share with Thinking Outside the Longbox shoot us an email at: outsidethelongbox@gmail.com
Gravediggers Union Volume 1 – Wes Craig w., Toby Cypress a. – Image Comics

So one of my favorite comics currently going is Gravediggers Union is about to get their first trade, and Image has an amazing trailer. Image says:
“DEADLY CLASS co-creator Wes Craig teams up with artist Toby Cypress (Omega Men) to introduce you to the weird horror of THE GRAVEDIGGERS UNION, VOL.1 this May. The trade paperback collects issues #1-5 of the ongoing series.
In THE GRAVEDIGGERS UNION, VOL. 1, the supernatural world has gone berserk, and it’s all tied to a powerful cult called the Black Temple. They want to unleash ancient dark gods on mankind and bring about the apocalypse. The only things that stands in their way are Cole, Haley, and Ortiz. They’re members of the Gravediggers Union, a brotherhood sworn to defend the living from the undead. At the center of the Black Temple’s plan is a street kid named Morgan. She’s the key to the coming apocalypse. Also, she’s Cole’s estranged daughter. To find her, the Gravediggers will have to contend with a witch who hates their guts, a former cult member who used to be the world’s biggest movie star, yuppie vampires, steroid-zombies, junk golems…and no overtime pay.”
Be sure to pick this book up if you haven’t read them yet. They are fantastic. Check out the trailer too!

Bram Stoker’s Dracula – Mike Mignola – IDW

One of Mike Mignola’s lesser known works is about to get a reprint (which means I won’t have to keep hunting for issue number three to read the story). I for one can’t wait to get a hold of this book. An adaptation of the Gary Oldman film this is for sure a book that you are gonna want to check out if you like horror movies. From IDW:
“25 years ago one of comics’ most celebrated creators, Mike Mignola, adapted to comics, along with Roy Thomas, the star-studded Columbia Pictures (Sony Pictures Entertainment) film by Francis Ford Coppola, Dracula, based on the world-renowned novel by Bram Stoker. Now at last fans of this lost treasure will have a chance to relive the terror, or discover it for the first time, as IDW is bringing the complete story back to print!
“I cannot tell you what a relief it is to have this book back in print,” said artist Mike Mignola. “People have been asking about this one for ages—More than any other book of mine—and I honestly didn’t think it was ever going to be possible to see an edition, but here it is. Thank you Scott Dunbier and IDW. No idea how you did it but very glad you did. I’m generally not a fan of my older work (pretty huge understatement there) but I think this one holds up. Despite the fact that I was doing a movie adaptation (which has its own unique set of problems) I think there is some nice drawing and storytelling in here. One of the very few older jobs I’m still pretty proud of.”
The 136 page hardcover collection features Mignola’s stunning black and white artwork, and showcases the master creators’ final work before launching Hellboy.”
Mike Mignola may not like his older work, but I sure as hell do. Be sure to check this out when it comes out, I get the feeling that you will be pleased.

Floppy Copy – Grave Diggers Union

“The Working Class Kicks Serious Supernatural Ass!”

A LONG #%!#%$% TIME AGO, yet unrevealed shit was going down to our pre humanoid ancestors, it looks like we were being used as a delivery service for giant alien/monster egg sacks or something like that. Intro the Angel like good guys flying in and blowing everything up setting us free while also enslaving us in a way by locking some information into our undeveloped monkey like brains? I think that’s what happening in the open sequences of the first 3 books but honestly I have no idea, the art is cool as shit though and it seems to have a purpose so I’m down with it.

Grave Diggers Union Takes us balls deep into the bureaucratic management of all things creepy and crawly, who you going to call when the dead rise from their graves at night… BLUE COLLAR BADASSES in the Grave Diggers Union that’s who, and they know how to get the job done. except now more than ever there seems to be a growing and rising threat as more and more zombies, ghosts, and all manner of undead nastiness seem to be waking up in unprecedented numbers. All this and our heroes have to work through union leads and overtime concerns. Personally, I would love to have seen this angel of the story played up and addressed further than it has been so far, but that is a very minor nitpicky critique of the comic.

We have solid characters with believable motivations and a story that is both wide open at this point and yet easy to follow. (That’s Hard to do) I haven’t touched on the occult shit so far as I do not want to give away too much of the motivation behind the main characters drive to find his little girl, but let’s just say daddy and daughter seem to be on the opposite sides of the apocalypse on this one. Family drama y’all!!!

Honestly the cult thing seems to be minor in my opinion as the earth itself is spewing up all kinds of freaky ass shit for our characters to deal with, and all while managing two 15-minute breaks and a mandatory half hour for lunch. Will the forces of good and evil join together to save the human race? What does the Grave Diggers Union have to say about this? Well Publicly they said the same thing as everyone else—“Everything is Under Control.”

This is M. Night SHaMaMalanz The Happening/Mixed with Ghostbusters but not Ghostbusters 2 and just kind of the outside idea of the Happening not the shitty storytelling, pacing, or horrible writing. Honestly The Happening is a terrible movie! You get 1 half Martha SHaMaMalan… 1 ONLY!

As for The grave Diggers Union on the other hand, I feel pretty good giving this 4 out of 5 Marthas, the third comic felt a little rushed maybe, or kind of dealer like, but even then it was still funny and very enjoyable to read.

You Listen To What? – Follow Up Bands PT1

You Listen To What?
Gabe listens to some weird ass kinds of music, and he would love you to hear it too. Weekly Gabe will share a playlist of some genre of music that you may or may not have heard of. Give it a listen and then give us a call. Did you love it or hate it let us know on the Michael Kuyk Memorial Hotline at 970-573-6148
Follow Up Bands Part 1
So I got this idea last week that a cool article would be to write about follow up bands. Sometimes when a band you really like breaks up you can only hope that some of the musicians in that band will go on to form something else that is equally good (or in some rare cases even better). So I posted something about this on Facebook and holy crap did a lot of people respond. I had some ideas of bands that I wanted to include in this one, but so many people suggested great follow up bands that this is gonna be a two part article with some decent sized play lists. So have fun and here we go:

The Clash – Big Audio Dynamite – Carbon/Silicon – Joe Strummer and the Mesceleros
So starting off with one of my favorite bands of all time; The Clash. Formed in 1976 The Clash were part of the first wave of British Punk that included bands like the Sex Pistols and The Damned. At first their music was basic in the way that you tend to think of punk being, but by the time their most recognized album London Calling had come out they were starting to experiment with other types of music like reggae.
After the break up of the band that searching for new musical influences comes through even more with the bands that followed. Mick Jones went on to form two interesting bands after The Clash. Big Audio Dynamite was a fantastic mix of world dance beats, hip-hop, punk and electronic music. Their hooks were infectious and got quite a bit of radio airplay. Much like B.A.D., Carbon/Silicon looked to break down the divisions between world music and rock and roll.
Last but not least Joe Strummer went on to also explore the space between electronic, international sounds and punk. Over the course of three albums Joe Strummer and The Mesceleros created some of the most enticing and sonicly appealing music of the early 2000’s. Doing a breed of rock that shows his punk roots, embraces reggae and the quirks of electronic music The Meseleros we a perfect final legacy for Strummer.
Pantera – DOWN – Damageplan
The four guys that became the Pantera we all know and love with their release Cowboys From Hell there were a lot of personal problems, but a lot of amazing music. After breaking up in 2001 after their album Reinventing The Steel the Abbot Brothers went one way while Phil Anselmo and Rex Brown went another.

The Abbot Brothers, Vinnie Paul and Dimebag Darrell went on to form Damageplan. Damageplan was about as straight up metal as you can get. With a lot of speed and a lot of growl it is that great kind of metal that just makes you stand up and take notice. Unfortunately the band was cut short when Dimebag was murdered by a crazed fan while on stage with the band.
DOWN on the other hand was fronted by Phil Anselmo and took on a very different brand of metal. Heavily influenced by bands like Black Sabbath and Trouble their take on metal was more on the doom and drone side of metal. With a down tuned sound and heavy vocals, Down is the kind of doom metal to just get weeded to, and they know it.
Hüsker Dü – Sugar – Bob Mould
One of the early SST bands Hüsker Dü started as a hardcore band, but one that was always verging on the edge of something different and original. By the release of their album Zen Arcade they were beginning to break the mold of hardcore (effectively helping to create the post punk sound). Due to drug and relationship issues the band broke up in 1988, but Bob Mould one of the three founding members went on to create more inventive music.

After a time of easier lighter feeling music in a solo project, Mould formed the band Sugar in an Athens Georgia Waffle House. Sugar was closer to Hüsker Dü than his solo work, but closer to the trending alternative music than it would ever be to early Hüsker Dü. The music of Sugar would prove to be very influential and Mould would go on to create some of his best solo work.
The Birthday Party – Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
Part post punk, part goth band, part screaming wall of noise and fury The Birthday Party was a part of a rising tide of dark music in the 80’s. They were full of dark imagery lyrically and a brutal force of sonic rage. With live shows that often turned violent they burned out quickly, but launched the carer of Nick Cave.

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds have made a brand of dark alternative for 16 incredible albums. With a distinctive voice and a creeping lyrical sensibility their music is the stuff of bad dreams, in the most amazing way possible. With music everywhere from the original X-Files soundtrack to Peaky Blinders Cave’s music turns up all over the pop culture spectrum. Chances are you have heard one of his songs and don’t even know it, and all that was born with a crazy band of screaming and noise.
Minor Threat – Fugazi
“I don’t want to hear it! Nah you’re full of shit!” These words were often screamed at the top of my lungs when I was a teenager. Minor Threat, icons of hardcore punk, creators of the term Straight Edge, paragons of DIY. There is really no way to over state how pivotal of a band Minor Threat is to punk. What came after them is almost as important.

With the forming of Minor Threat also came Dischord records, a defiantly DIY record company that put out all of Minor Threat and many of the punk bands in the Washington DC area. Once Minor Threat split up lead singer Ian MacKaye went on to co-found the band Fugazi. As a post punk band they were just as influential as Minor Threat.
Well that was a big ass article, and we just scraped the surface of bands that we all talked about on Facebook. So next week will do another chunk of Follow Up bands because this is a lot of fun.

Gabe.

There Are Other Podcasts – More Perfect

We know you are loyal fans, that would never ever listen to another podcast. Just in case you were curious about other podcasts (which we know you aren’t), “There Are Other Podcasts?” Will review some of the podcasts that we think are fun and interesting, but not as fun and interesting as our podcast of course. If you would like us to give you a listen shoot us an email at outsidethelongbox@gmail.com.
Radiolab Presents More Perfect – www.facebook.com/MorePerfectPodcast/
Radiolab is one of my favorite NPR podcasts (FYI you will probably see more than a few of these in the article over time). They have a really great way of taking an interesting story and coming at it from a scientific angle that is really hard to top or duplicate. When host Jad Abumrad decided that he wanted to learn more about the Supreme Court (something that he didn’t really know anything about) he started the show More Perfect.
Finishing their second season in January they have created some of the most interesting podcasting I have ever heard. The ideas that the Supreme Court deal with are beyond complicated, and in the same way that Radiolab will look at a story from so many different sides, each episode looks at each Supreme Court case that it is discussing from every angle. Often by the time you get to the end of the episode you can see why each side thinks that they are right.
Covering everything from the Death Penalty, to Gun Rights, to Citizens United, there are episodes that deal with the heavy weight subjects that the courts face. There are also episodes that deal with the theft of a Justices writings from the library of congress, or how much more often the female Justices are interrupted on the bench. There are so many fascinating stories that surround the court and the cases that they have come before them.
i binged this show at work over the course of two days, it is some of the most mind expanding, educational and entertaining listening I have done in quite some time. Each episode is engaging, nuanced and wonderfully produced. If you want to learn about how our country works from a legal perspective you can’t go wrong with listening to More Perfect from Radiolab

But when a new kind of Wendigo threatens the lives of others, will Weapon H be able to shirk his responsibility? Does any of his humanity remain?

From Boom! Studios this week, a new series launches from Max Bemis (lead singer of Say Anything) and Michael Dialynas (artist of The Woods). This is a sweeping, coming-of-age fantasy about living your dreams. Literally. In her dreams, Lucy is the hero of all her favorite stories, living each night as a grand adventure. These journeys will teach her more about herself and the real world around her than she ever expected.
