This week Dave and Steel are joined by Spencer to discuss the latest in Vin Diesel news, their favorite fringe presidential candidates, historical also-rans, and fringe political parties, revive Lost the Plot, share outsider classics from Daniel Johnston, Dan Reeder, The Toadies, They Might Be Giants, Congress-Woman Malinda Jackson Parker, and Leonard Cohen, and hear the calming anti-road book wisdom of the Honku.
Perpetual Candidates and Favorite Third Parties
- Andrew Basiago, the man we’re all backing in 2016.
- Steel thinks more people should know the story of Clennon King, an American legend.
- Non human candidates are great too! Steel’s favorite: former Hartlepool mayor H’angus the Monkey.
- Spencer’s a big fan of Cecil G. Murgatroyd. You probably will be too, once you read a little more about his terrific work with the McGillicuddy Serious Party.
Unchained Melodies: Outsider Music
This week Spencer enlightened us with “Honkus,” anti road-rage haiku poems by Aaron Naparstek.
