My Friends Are All Jerks

I had to do one more show before I packed up my microphone and headed east for the summer. I’m leaving my bay side California studio and it’s off to the cabin on the lake in Maine. Me, Mrs. Malone, and Baby Hoagie will be farming, gardening, and boating all summer getting in some grandma and grandpa time back on the farm.

This is my latest recording project called, My Friends Are All Jerks. I thought this was really funny back when I did it, but it’s not as funny to me now. I have decided to share it with you anyway, and let you decide. The My Friends Are All Jerks Project came from an idea where I write songs that rip on my friends, then post them on myspace. Once I did that, I simply invited my friends to “be my friend” on myspace, and when they check out my profile, there’s a song about them waiting right on my profile. It did get a few laughs, emails, and phone calls.

The whole thing was a sort of practical joke on my friends, and I’m sure you have loved ones in your life that bug the hell out of you, so you can relate. Once I had the idea to write a series of annoying songs about my closest friends, I just had to do it. The idea was so funny to me. This project had me laughing for days, just coming up with it. I’m very motivated by mischief.

Thanks to everyone that listens to our SuperFan Show, enjoy your summer. Hoagie ~

Our 50th Show!!!

We’re celebrating our 50th podcast here at the Super Fantastic Ultra Show. We’re half way to 100!

We start out with a new CD from the New York band, Makar and their tune, Alligator Agents. (If you are in a band, be sure to post us your CD, just click the ‘Send Us Your CD‘ link for details). After the Alligator Agents get off the stage, Mark Harvey and the S.S. MOPEHEAD makes a bit of a wake with, My Orders Take Me Out, a strange and trippy recording from the Flash Animated Adventure. Gwen Snyder and her amazing band Blueberry perform Le Mat (The Fool), which is a very good card indeed. The amazing Dan Hanrahan lends us another version of his song Roderick, and then Equator frightens us all with the manic performance titled, Why Won’t You Go Up To The Gallery With Me? Then, if that was not enough, here to show us all how it’s really done, Lurch and Holler tell us all about Vertical Stripes.

So there you go. Fifty shows and counting. The megs pile up… can my web host handle it? Will I receive overage bills… I don’t know. All I know is I keep making these things. If you enjoy our little show, please do say hello – click here and leave us a message. Enjoy the show:

At Peace

I support peace. I enjoy as much peace as I can get. I wanted to start out this new year with a Podcast that is At Peace, and here it is.

I start out the show with a new CD from Roy Muniz with his peaceful tune, Wasn’t It You. Next up Strip Karaoke asks us to Come Closer. Mitchell Vaillant delivers a little Professional Help and mopehead lets us all know that It’s About Us. Old Songs brings us The Girls Scattered, Rain Station relaxes a bit with Quiet Morning, and Richard McGhee Star Vocalist does the standard, Leaving On Your Mind.

Peace is a concept, a feeling. Has there ever been peace on earth, or does peace linger only for a moment, from one person to the next. Maybe there isn’t enough to go around. Who knows? All I know is that everyone wants it. Get a little of yours, enjoy the show:

Those Crazy Kids!

Now that Baby Hoagie is 2 years old I spend a lot of time running around the house after this crazy kid. I can hardly find the time to cast my pod these days. Then I thought, that’s the perfect theme for a podcast posted in December, Those Crazy Kids!

Dan Hanrahan starts the show with Head Cleaner’s tune: Josie. Mark Harvey tells us a little about being Older & Wiser. Equator gets out the old 4 track with Happy Home. Portland Maine’s Love Spitoon does their inspired version of Strawberry Fields. The Instant Automatons tell us over and over that Gillian is Normal. Lurch and Holler bring us all a lot of Happiness, and then to top it all off Mitchell Vaillant introduces us all to Rumplestiltskin himself.

Enjoy the holidays, and if you’re one of those crazy kids that just got a new iPod for Xmas, be sure to add our little show to your iTunes podcast list. Wucka wucka.

Gettin’ Witchy

Ahh the cold October air is here, and Halloween is just around the corner. I always find this time of year so exciting. The start of the Holidays before we’re all burnt out on them all.

Winds of change are blowing, and Lurch and Holler are telling us all about it as they turn their mighty Wheel. Lurch and Holler is a 2006 CD release by Baltimore artists Michael Willis and E. Liz Downing. Next up Dan Hanrahan pays a weird visit to the Magician’s House. Truly witchy indeed. Beth Blood and Ghost Walks gets all earthy with, Mud, Mudder, Muddest. Be sure to check out Beth’s Halloween Costume Shop at: Suitsmi.com – it’s so cool, really. Then to get creepy I play another cut from the Gorehounds titled: Night of Gore, and it really rocks the house. Equator gets all trippy and strange with, Wave, and then we end the party rocking with Rain Station and the tune, Broom Hopping. Be sure to check out the Halloween Flash Animations by Rain Station at JackOLantern.org.

I can’t wait to go out trick or treating with Baby Hoagie again this season. I get to eat all the candy.

Happy Birthday Super Fan!

I’d like to thank all the musicians that have shared their music with us all over the past year. It’s been really fun receiving CD’s in the post and adding them all to my play list. It’s also really nifty to see my stats that tell me that the Super Fantastic Ultra Show is being listened to all over the world. Every day we get hundreds of listeners. Some come from the iTunes directory, others come from Google searches, Yahoo, MSN… so many people searching for the musicians that I play. Many times this show is the only place on line to hear these artists.

If you enjoy this podcast, please tell at least one person today about it. Spread the word. I work so hard compiling these shows together, and I’m doing it all just for the love of the music. I have a gigantic collection of home recordings, band demos, and strange stuff that it’s a pleasure to have the chance to share it with others. Please help me out and turn someone on to our image enhanced podcast. The more the merrier.

Today’s show has some great tunes by Blueberry, Mitchell Vaillant, Liz Downing, Rain Station, The Gorehounds, and Psycho Semantics. All of whom have contributed a great deal of time and talent to our past year of shows. I also want to be sure to thank everyone else that has sent me their CD, so THANKS!!!

Gettin’ Kinky

OK, so spring time is getting to me, I’m seeing more and more skin when I go out. Flowers are blooming, we’ve already been to the beach a few times. Bikinis everywhere… what’s a guy gonna do? I mean I AM human, no matter what anyone says.

Spring fever has hit the entire country, and so I thought I’d celebrate with an image enhanced podcast for everyone else out there that is also all turned on by mother nature’s magic.

I start off today’s podcast with one of the sexiest and kookiest tunes I’ve ever heard. It’s by bay area artist mopehead otherwise known as Mr. Mark Harvey who just happened to celebrate a birthday. This tune is titled: He Goes To Parties, and I tell you, it’s so bitter sweet and sexy I’m not sure what to think when ever I hear it. One of my absolute favorite songs of all time.

Next up from the Hyped 2 Death collection is the band Animals and Men with the way cool tune, Baby Scratch My Back. There is something very kinky about this band, maybe it’s the bands name that makes me wonder what they’re up to, maybe it’s their lyrics…

Then from the sexiest city in the whole US, New York City, comes Gwen Snyder and her band Blueberry. The cut I play from this amazing act is, Idol Hands. We all know that Idol Hands do the work of the devil, and Blueberry make it sound so sexy. Love them, and Gwen. Truly sexy folk from NY. Be sure to check out her site, as there’s so much yummyness to be had there.

In 1991 I had the pleasure to get the chance to record Bo Grumpus on my 4-track when I was living with these guys in the pan handle of the Haight in San Francisco. The tune Craig and Petey play today is, I Love Me. Hilarious, and anytime one is involved in some self loving, it gets a bit kinky, wouldn’t you say?

My band Rain Station whip out the title track from the Fancy Fancy CD, a very dark and mysterious tune if I say so myself. Kinda inspired by porn, and one particular dirty girl that drove me nuts. Maybe I’ve said too much, maybe not enough.

To end this naughty set is none other than the beautiful and ever so sexy May Ling Su and her band, Strip Karaoke playing, He’s A Homo.

Whew! I just can’t take any more. I’m gonna go snoop around and see what my wife is up to… I bet she’s in need of a little break from whatever she’s doing… in the meantime, enjoy the podcast!

Lies! Lies! Lies!

So I have no idea what’s been going on, but it seems like it’s been the month of people not doing what they say. Not showing up on time, two hours late, and not phoning… All kinds of mayhem with banks and electric companies making billing errors. What the hell? I can’t get anything done. It’s making me completely insane… or worse incompletely insane.

Every time I’ve made a plan around someone else, it all fell through. I’m at a complete stand still on several projects, so I thought I’d do something about it. Sit down all alone and put together an enhanced podcast for all you listeners out there. Let me tell you this, I will let nothing get in my way. I am hell bent on getting something done, and as long as blogger doesn’t self implode in the next ten minutes, we should be fine. My fingers are crossed, which makes typing rather difficult.

So if you are feeling held back by all the flakes in your life, this podcast is for you. If every time you make a plan, someone else messes it all up, I feel for ya. If every time you get a bank statement or bill, and it’s wrong – let’s join together and crush the infrastructure. What is wrong with the world of mankind? Have we all lost our minds? It’s like there isn’t a brain among the lot of ’em. I just want to start banging heads together where ever I go, so look out.

We start out with a great Boston band, Laughing Academy with Say What You Will. The Future Chicken Farmers whip out Distemper, which is the exact type of shot I need right now. I’m mad as a dog. Another annoying personality trait, Fickle is also the name of a beautiful tune by Blueberry. Then Equator get out the old 4-track with Lodestone. Pennsylvania rockers Brother Eye give us all a Guilt Trip, and the 3 Pigs Cafe end it all with Liar Liar.

The next time someone lets you down, crank this podcast loud, and just let go. Forget about it all. Keep muttering: It just doesn’t matter – it just doesn’t matter…

Hyped 2 Death

The kind folk over at Hyped 2 Death sent me a giant package of CDs. I’ve been listening to them for a while now just to familiarize myself with all the new tunes. Most of the CDs are “Do It Yourself” rock and roll made by a bunch of freaks and weirdos with low budget equipment. My favorite kind of music! Also included is The Shivvers, a nifty teen band that pumps out power pop.

Today’s image enhanced podcast is all from the Hyped 2 Death collection, as they sent me so much music, I thought it would be cool to do a show of all these interesting bands. Be sure to check out Hyped2Death.com for all your DIY, punk, and post punk music. These guys have a lot of stuff to offer. A huge collection.

First up is Teen Line by the Shivvers. Then we get on with my favorite DIY act, The Instant Automatons with, Armchair Politics. Animals & Men tell us all about the Bad Lover. We’ve all been there. Ichkk. Mud Hutters do a great song about potato titled, All About. I really love potato. Any way you cook it, I love the spud. You’ll like the song too. Steve Treatment ends our show with a Change of Plan.

I really appreciate Hyped 2 Death for sharing all these nifty CDs with us all. Be sure to check out more of their music, as they have tons and tons just waiting for your ears to hear. Have a good one, Hoagie.
