The GribCast

LadyMsGee and The Gribshnobler celebrate the new year by talking about their favorite books they read during the last year. LadyMsGee's top 25 includes lots of history and historical fiction, several works by jewish authors, some classics, and more! The Gribshnobler's top 20 features many works of science fiction, some children's books, a couple of graphic novels, and (guess what) more! Also included in this episode is a bonus clip featuring Professor Gerry Canavan discussing The Testaments by Margaret Atwood and some drone / ambient music by Bodies That Matter, Ocean in a Bottle, and Remora....

The GribCast

Happy Halloween from The GribCast! Listen up for 5 hours of creepy tunes and stuff.  Hear some eerie indie rock from The Casket Girls.  Beware of the Silber Media Sounds of Halloween.  Behold the majesty of a brand new Fraticornicos album along with the horror of a simulated Q&A. Gaze upon to the conjoined covers of Depeche Mode's Enjoy the Silence. Not even the murky music of Vampire Step-Dad can save you this time. If you make it to the chilling end, you will experience Synthwave, Darkwave, Ghostwave, Experimental Electronic music, Field Recordings, Dark Ambient,...

The GribCast

The Gribshnobler shares two different versions of a favorite lengthy dark ambient / drone piece: a cover version by Body 13, followed by the original by Bull of Heaven.  In between the music tracks the Gribshnobler shares some insight from Body 13 member Echo Hazard, reads 2 related reviews by Hakita, and ruminated on the different ways people can approach listening to music.

The GribCast

The Gribshnobler returns from hiatus with LadyMsGee for our discussion of season 2 of the TV series The Handmaid's Tale, based on the dystopian (maybe science fiction) novel by Margaret Atwood.  Do we think this season holds up in comparison to the book and first season? Listen to find out!  Along the way, you'll also hear  X-Ray Spex, The Plasmatics, and The Luminaries play some punk and indie rock. Note: This episode has an explicit rating for language and subject matter. Correction: We did not play any X-Ray Spex songs in our first Handmaid episode, instead we played "No...

#043 - Tribute to Mr. Titan, The GribCat show art #043 - Tribute to Mr. Titan, The GribCat

The GribCast

We are very sad to report that The GribCat, also known as Mr. Titan, has passed away.  He was such a vocal cat that he ended up in several episodes of The GribCast and even one of our original songs.  In this tribute LadyMsGee joins The Gribshnobler to give some history and reminiscence of the GribCat; his life, his passing, fun memories, his positive influence in our own lives and others.  We also share a deleted clip from the previous episode in which Rand Kelly meets Mr. Titan and discusses cats and other pets.  At the end we play two songs that remind us of the GribCat,...
