Got a personal philosophy but as a song? This is the week for you! Personal anthems are songs that represent that philosophy that is you are gets you to strive to keep on keeping on. Both Mitchell and Amy hadn’t come across a song before this week and hilarity ensues after some seriousness.
Revisiting an older theme again this week with weather but a totally different collection of songs. Weather as metaphor and even songs about fog and snow! Amy was really sleep deprived and tangented more than normal. Mitchell points out how they are both indoor kids and it is likely why they like the rain so much.
There is a lot going on this week, least of which are the tangents. Mitchell and Amy hit pretty early on the importance of Off!™ during any Mississippi Delta get together and the true explanation of three different “rocks” occurs. So many rocks! Sit back on the porch swing with your adult beverage and some salad called “jazz cabbage.”
Reach Out to Us:
Amy and Mitchell spend this week checking out the dumpster offerings and curbside pick-up to find treasure underneath the used cat litter and soggy couches. They take their mother’s advice and only try to say nice things. Metal Johnny finds a way to gross even Amy out and Mitchell finds ways to compliment horrible songs against his better judgement.
While they come across as sweet innocent podcasters, Mitchell and Amy are carrying some bitter, sarcastic, snarky grudges that don’t seem to be dying anytime soon. In this magnificent example of how great the songs made out of bitterness, Amy cusses quite a bit and Mitchell admits how much he loves this theme.
We are somber this week and ask that all hold close the memories we have of those we have lost.
