Tales From The Drop Box 2018-13 (Episode 114)

Bang. Here you have Tales From The Drop Box Episode 114 arriving a scant few days after Episode 113. What gives, you might inquire? Well, as you know there was the lengthy break in these podcasts but I was still listening to new music. So, I stockpiled a few things knowing that upon my return I had to go bigger, badder, and win you back. Episode 114 is a little more melodic than last week. Overall, the tracks are closer to the pop end of the rock spectrum, but there is a solid block of modern post-punk sounds that should keep you somewhat balanced. I know at least one of you (JB from Vancouver) is still recovering from the Pagan track a couple of episodes ago, so this should be a somewhat more pleasant listening experience for you as there is no disco/punkrock/deathmetal tracks this time. Maybe next time …

Oh, and so we are clear… The Whitehouse is not the place for Nazis. Why do we have to even say this?

I’m not afraid of what I did but I’m not getting over it and I know and I know and I know that I asked you to stay I’m just a bad man today …. Your defense is crumbling slowly you cannot get a witness to stand what’s it like when millions of voices stand up and call you a cheat what kind of hell what kind of hell am I living in

Just For Fun Concerts EP 2018-07 (Episode 108)

So what did I learn from Stormy Daniels interview with Anderson Cooper earlier this week? Well, I learned that there is a new fetish with only one practitioner – getting your butt spanked with a magazine having your face on the cover. Very presidential! As usual, I am excited to bring you Tales From The Drop Box Episode 108! This episode is a little more challenging than normal. Not sure why, perhaps my mood is influenced by witnessing chaos. Could have been Stormy. Who knows. What I do guarantee is that this episode will sneak up on you like a hurricane (big storm-y reference) with several tracks so catchy you’ll wake up in the middle of the night because you can’t get them out of your head.

So, in order to erase the image of Trump being spanked by Stormy, here is some food for thought on what is rapidly becoming a larger concern (at least to me) than the Trump Presidency:

Giant earthquakes are shaking Greenland — and scientists just figured out the disturbing reason why

Just one of many examples of why climate change deniers are dangerous. More stormy weather ahead….
