Episode 47 - Double Ontegrity (Boonies All Around!)

Paul and Gordie are joined by JULIE McKIM for a Gordcast exclusive. Julie connects PETCO with Andy Warhols Factory and we begin with LADY GA GA, DIAMONDSNAKE, LED ZEPPELIN , BLACK ANGELS, MGMT, LAURA NYRO, DALE BOZZIO, ERLAN, BOB DYLAN and finally get to THE FOO FIGHTERS.

Paul sings! Gordie sings!    ...and Julie does not in public or private, because she is the Dangerous Aunt.  Ramble on!

Episode 44 - Pot Beland!

Gordies voice is doubled and echoed all through his talk with TOM BELAND. We begin by talking about Canadian Parliment which slams full on into a 20 minute Marijuana discussion, complete with pizza and The Legend Of Zelda. Sports is up next with World Series talk, posting football scores in the window for the guys at the bakery across the street from the Lovejoy Mansion, sports cosplay and how STRAT-O-MATIC BASEBALL is more fun than D&D.

We finally get around to talking TRUE STORY SWEAR TO GOD and Toms internet goes down.

Hope you can get through, but honestly, Tom does most of the talking.

Episode 43 - Four  Monkees At The Table!

In an unprecedented Gordcast, Gordie and Paul wrangle previous guest: Nathan Alfaro and new guest: Brian Nash to provide a glimpse into when four friends get together around a mic and let fly. (...Gordie a little too much.)

MIKE NESMITH seems to be the main topic, but we hit on THE MONKEES, JUDAS PRIEST, THE FOO FIGHTERS, PRINCE THE BANANA SPLITS, BURT WARD, WIL WHEATON, the roots of Alt Country and way too much table banging for emphasis.

The sound can be a bit jarring at times, so hold onto yer ears.
