Worst Little Podcast – Episode 028

kate Cotter at Dogwater Studios

Poised, graceful... and not really sure if this was a good idea.

I know I say it all the time, but we REALLY DO have a big show for you this week – burners and Elvis and music, oh my!

The show opens with some recordings from the Playaphone circa 1998. After the open, we take a moment to remember the awesomeness that is Elvis Aaron Presley. 34 years ago he became truly legendary, dying on the toilet with such a darkened complexion that the paramedics arriving on the scene thought he was ‘a black male’. We came for the music and stayed for the excess. Thanks, Elvis.

Our first guest is always awesome Kate Cotter. Kate has been one of the most hardworking and well-recieved singer/songwriters in Reno, mesmerising audiencies for more than a decade. We talk with her about her recent recordings, performances and upcoming events.

Mallory Mishler and Jess Blaze at the Dogwater Studios

Camp Jub Jub sez, "Fuck Your Day!"

Then, on to Burning Man!!! The Dogwater Studios gets invaded by dirty hippies and artfags has the delight of hosting Jess Blaze, Mallory Mishler and a couple of other Burning Man specialists. It’s come to our attention that some people going to Burning Man may be interested in doing illegal drugs. Guess what people. It’s still part of America and all those drugs are still illegal. Doesn’t matter if you’re off in the desert. Rebecca Gasca of the Nevada ACLU has some great advice on how not to get busted in the first place, what to do if you are and how to deal with law enforcement on the playa. (Hint: it starts with ‘p’ and rhymes with ‘oliteness’.)

The digidelic cowboy

The Digidelic Cowboy!

Burning Man ‘expert’ Dr. Cornelius Cumcough stops by with some really horrible advice about Burning Man. (He probably thinks there is still a bridge connecting the twin peaks of Mt. Kilomanjaro.) And FINALLY, the Digidelic Cowboy busts out on his digereedoo, inspiring an impromptu jam session with Nick Ramirez on the beatbox! Oh, and everyone gets the quiz, plus a suprise phone call from Cheyenne.

Reverend Rory

Yeah - he SWEARS he's not gay.

Thanks for Listening.

Worst Little Podcast – Episode 027

DJ O Gnosis / Carson Cessna

That shirt just reinforces the muppet look.

Don’t drive listening to DJ O Gnosis!!! But first, some deathmetal.

We’ve got a little different show for you all this week – lots of new stuff and a quieter. gentler podcast . Carson Cessna awkwardly hangs out with us – YAY!! a return of the Awkward Silence game!! Nick and Rory did very little show prep – and it shows! HA! Seriously though, super busy week with lots of stuff, like Rory’s failed Date Night with the wifey and Nick still looking for a job.

Speaking of jobs, Chewie is back out workin’ the mines, so doesn’t join us this week, but we hope to have him back before Burning Man. (Stay tuned for next weeks Burning Man Spectaculare!!! Or as we like to call it, ‘The Spectacular BM”!)

The other big highlights of this show include some Italian Circumcision Rick’s Clips!!! He unearths some really revealing early samples of the Notorious R.A.D. as well as debuts some new ones. Plus – our very first commercial! One we made ourselves for Stingray Tattoo, so check THAT shit out.

Thanks for listening.

Worst Little Podcast – Episode 026

Todd Imus of the Firebombing

Todd and… nothing

“I’ve only listened to a few episodes. Is it usually this much of a trainwreck?”
– Todd Imus, directly after the recording stopped

Hello, Good Listener! It’s a pretty darn good show for you this week if’n I do say so m’self… and I do (most weeks anyway). We start out with a traditional folk song that our guests, The Firebombing, recorded at Dogwater. Rory has returned in good form and spirits. He critiques Nick and Rick’s performances the week before and is really quite supportive. Yep. That’s the story and I’m told I have to stick to it. And back from the fields of silver under the great state of Nevada is the big man- CHEWIE!!!! Don’t get too excited though, this was just a one-off. He’ll be gone for another couple of weeks after this, so gitchyer Wookie on while you can.

We sit down and (sweat it out) talk with The Firebombing, premiere purveyors of hardcore, anthemic and Americana rock in the Reno music scene. Todd Imus and Garrett Donovan were a lot of fun to hang out with in the studio, despite all the heat and nudity… Rory and Nick have a problem with that. Keeping their clothes on, that is. At any rate – Todd and ‘Mr. Perfect’ treat us to impromptu acoustic versions of a few tunes. At least one of them is going to make it onto ‘The CD’.

Also – listen carefully for your chance to win a Worst Little Podcast PRYZE PAKK. This first time, it’s easy…

Iceman and Maverick? *shudder*

OH!! Garrett ROCKS the Worst Quiz Ever – he scores right up there with Layla James (who could be be returning to WLP sometime soon). For a quiet guy, he’s got some things to say and secrets to spill. You just have to get him drunk enough and ask him a bunch of rapid-fire awkward questions! Todd score is okay, but he’s a ginger, so what do you really expect? Like I said, It’s actually a pretty good show this week. Thanks for listening.

Worst Little Podcast – Episode 25

Sexy Vinyl

Some days, you just never know what you’re going to get.
This is going to be fun. I have no idea of what this podcast sounds like or what happens when the ‘tape’ was rolling. If you haven’t figured it out by now, this mightbe Rory. I wasn’t feeling too well this week and had to take the night off. Nick takes the helm this episode, hanging out with and entertaining the guys from Elephant Rifle. And since Chewie is still blowing us off, Rick had to be the wingman this week so we’re all fuckerd up.

Brad was caught unawares by the stealthy photographer.

One bit of exciting news is that we’d like to welcome a new sponsor – Grassroots Books. It’s a great new and used bookstore with low prices that rhyme with ‘ninety-nine’. Seriously, $10 bucks can give you an impressive looking shelf at home, even if you’ve never read any of them! They have sales ALL the time. Go there to show them that people actually listen to this show! Mention you heard about them on the Worst Little Podcast and GET A FREE BOOK!! Look at that, how we come through for you. Now come through for us! Check out teh Grassroots Books.

If Reno IS destroyed in a firey holocaust, I want it to look like this.

Back to Elephant Rifle: They have a new album out, as featured at the top of the post. Go buy one! Go see them at their next show, which I am sure is mentioned on the podcast, right, Nick? I’m pretty sure they are a really good hardcore band, but I’m going to have to listen along with you. They better not have fucked it up.I bet it’s a great show.Thanks for listening.
