Dave reacts to Danny Carey's Pneuma drum cam video.

My goodness. This was probably the greatest concert film I’ve ever seen and I am so happy for and jealous of everyone in attendance over those two nights in the O2 arena. Truly an amazing performance. It is so well recorded and produced that I can’t imagine anyone not liking it.

We both went into this not know all of the songs that they played but it didn’t really matter. We were both just blown away by it all.

There is a sci-fi narrative throughout the film, dealing with alternate realities (the simulation theory) and a main stream media that doesn’t seem to want to report the truth. And just to really blow your mind, there’s a virus/pandemic thrown into the mix. Is Muse from the future? Perhaps!


Usually Dave doesn't want to sit through a very long song, he just doesn't like to sit still for any amount of time for most things unless it's behind his drum kit. I gave him the option of tapping out after the first song, but he happily sat through the whole thing.

As far as we can tell, this is bassist #3 for Jamiroquai — does Dave thinks he's funky enough?

Stay tuned to find out.


Tom MacDonald has balls.

This suggestion came from Jef Costello on yt!

Dave had not heard of Calibro 35 prior to this but I think he enjoyed both the music and the really fun video.

Thanks Jef!

Wooo! It’s our one hundredth episode and we’re celebrating with the eighth installment of our Conspiracies, Unsolved Mysteries & Deep Dark Secrets series!

Let’s get right to it, shall we?

Lina Morgana []This week’s conspiracy is about a lovely young lady who was tragically taken from us way too early. Meet Lina Morgana, a very talented young lady who was definitely on the fast track to fame and fortune.

The official story — if you can find it — is that Lina jumped to her death in 2008.

The official conspiracy, however, hints that Lady Gaga may have been involved. You see, Lady Gaga was Lina’s back up vocalist. The rumor is they recorded 12 songs together before Lina’s untimely death. Some have stated that Gaga’s interesting style choices were ripped off from Lina. Does this all sound too crazy to you? Perhaps it is, but there seems to have been a concerted effort to scrub Lina’s death from the internet. To me that screams “Streisand Effect.”

In the song “Wunderland” (which we play in this episode) Lina sings the word “can’t” as “c-c-c-can’t” and one can’t help but wonder if “p-p-p-poker face” wasn’t a direct bite from that. Or is it an homage? We can only speculate.

Regardless of the cause of her death, the world would be a much better place with Lina still in it. Her family has put together a lovely website honoring Lina, and many of her songs and television appearances can still be found on youtube (including songs featuring Gaga).


The Rendlesham Forest Incident, also known as ‘Britain’s Roswell’, is undoubtedly one of the best documented and most significant military encounters with a Craft of Unknown Origin or UFO. It is also a case that involved very credible witnesses, trained (USAF) United States Air Force observers and security police.

The incident spanned three days in 1980. Rendlesham Forest is a large pine forest, east of Ipswich, in Suffolk, England. Nearby are the twin NATO air bases, RAF Bentwaters and RAF Woodbridge; at the time both bases were being leased to the United States Air Force. Several UFO incidents, including multiple-witness sightings by military personnel, ground traces, and radioactive anomalies were reported from Rendlesham forest.

In this segment we go through some of the evidence from Lt. Col. Charles Halt’s micro-recorder as well as some testimony we found in an episode of Unsolved Mysteries. Personally, I believe these guys 100% saw something unexplainable — Dave’s not entirely sure.

This Deep Dark Secret comes courtesy of, one of the best places for Hollywood gossip.

I am calling it Old Hollywood, but the subject of the blind is still alive. Very old, but alive. I always say the first rule of Hollywood is to never leave a hit show. This actor/singer was one of the first to do it and when he left, the show didn’t have a chance, and crashed and burned the next year. He will say he left the show because he was sick. Yes, sick from drinking too much, but that isn’t the reason. The reason was that he knew, that despite him being the second lead, he was the star of the show. People watched because of him. He wanted a raise that would have made him the highest paid actor of the time, whether in movies or television. The name of the show is also memorialized in song. The producers of the show thought he was bluffing. He wasn’t. They thought they could be a hit without him. They were wrong. It limped through the one season without him. They tried to get him to come back during that final season, but he asked for even more money than before, because he knew they were desperate. Not desperate enough to pay him his fee though. So, what happened to our actor? He never had another hit. He worked and worked, but no hits.

The cracker jack super sleuths in the comments identified George Maharis as being the subject of this old Hollywood Blind item. George was the second lead in the show “Route 66” which aired from 1960 to 1964. George was ballsy enough to walk away from the show and Hollywood made an example out of him. Dave and I go over this story and do some speculating!

Welp, that’s it for our 100th episode! To those of you who have actually listened to all of our episodes, thank you so much for that! It’s much appreciated!

Hi everyone! This suggestion came from John Woodberry on yt.

Dave was really enjoying it UNTIL! something so terrible happened in the video, I thought he may never be able to truly embrace Muse again.

You'll just have to watch to see what it was that triggered Dave so completely. Hint: Dave is a drummer.

Thanks so much for this great suggestion John!

This suggestion came from both John Woodberry and SheRa17!

There was a live version but I was afraid it may be too long for Dave to sit through and I went with the animated video version. Remind me not to do that any more. He really does prefer live versions BUT he did say he very much appreciated listening to this recorded version because it sounded so great.

Thanks John Woodberry (AGAIN!) and SheRa17 for this truly great suggestion.

Today's Jamiroquai reaction was suggested by rayno rashid from yt!

Who do you think Dave would like to see up on stage singing this alongside JK? What band does Dave think Jamiroquai sounds like on this number?

All will be revealed!

Thanks again rayno for this excellent suggestion!

This reaction was suggested by our pal Mark Levitt (@wiggybloogy on twitter).

Dave had zero idea as to what he was actually watching in terms of where everyone was from and what genre of music this was classified as.

The video is stunningly beautiful and although this isn't Dave's regular listening fare he did like the song!

Thanks for the suggestion Mark!

I don't think Dave was familiar with this particular post-Cream Baker band.

The bassist couldn't be any more 70s even if his life depended on it. I personally will always have a place in my heart for big hair and fringe.

Hey there everyone! Today's reaction was a suggestion from
Edoardo Alves on yt!

Dave spent quite a bit of time trying to guess the name of the band and that eventually switched to him suggesting names for the band. #ViolinGuyOrchestra

He was pretty sure the band was comprised of music school students. Was he right? Yes, of course.

He absolutely loved the drumming BUT was disappointed by the lack of a solo by one of the other members.

Thanks so much for your suggestion Edoardo!

Happy New Year friends!

Today's request came from Dindu Muffin on yt!

About 45 seconds in Dave starts to get a little suspicious. Truth be told he likes this song . . . BUT! You'll just have to watch it to find out what Dave's "but" is.

Thanks again for the suggestion Dindu!

Hi everyone! This reaction was suggested by castle07dw on yt!

Dave thinks he recognizes the singer and manages to guess who it is eventually, although he's not *that* familiar with the band.

"These guys have a lot of hair and a lot of energy!"

Thanks for the suggestion castle07dw, Dave really liked this one!

This wasn't easy, and the results aren't perfect, but the "After" is a thousand times better than the "Before."

We recently purchased a 2001 Toyota 4Runner for yours truly.

Other than being a little dirty on the inside, there are some significant rust issues. A nearby autoshop was going to charge nearly what we paid for the 4Runner to fix the rust. There's a lot of work involved in doing rust repair the right way. So, it was off to yt for me, where I found the holy grail of all amateur rust repair videos.

How to Repair Rust on Your Car Without Welding (No Special Tools Needed) — ChrisFix

I watched ChrisFix's rust repair video a whole bunch of times before I finally felt like I might be able to do the repair myself.

I ordered the products he has listed in his description box plus a few more and I got to work.

If you feel like rust repair is something you can't do yourself, take it from me — with a little patience you absolutely can do it. Because I did. And I am not good at these things.

I thought I'd try to trick Dave this week with this performer that was pointed out to me by @MrBillyboyroge.

Truth be told, Dave was a bit confused at first but then, out of nowhere, he guessed what he was watching. I don't know how he does it, but this time he even surprised himself.

Talent is clearly in the Kay family DNA.

We'd love to see a Karen and Jay collab!

This one wreaks of @wiggybloogy!

Dave has declared this MAN ROCK! And he means that in a good way. Actually I don't think he has anything negative at all to say about anybody on this stage. Though he is a bit sus of the girls in the audience.

Thanks for the suggestion!

This one was suggested by Carvalho Diablo on youtube!

As you can imagine, Dave very much enjoyed this one . . . BUT! He has questions. Fretless? Not fretless? If you know the answer, please tell us down below!

Thanks again Carvalho, great suggestion!

Usually Dave is not a fan of the longer videos BUT today's video was certainly an exception!

This particular performance definitely put the "jazz" in "acid jazz" for Dave.

I think he forgot he was supposed to talk for the first minute or so, he was too busy listening.

Subscribe, like and leave a suggestion for a song you'd like to see Dave react to!

This suggestion came for long time friend and suggester, @wiggybloogy on twitter aka Mark Levitt.

At first Dave wasn't sure what he was listening to but he does come around pretty quickly. Drums, vocals and keyboards are all stand outs to him. Sorry Joe.

Hiho! It's us again!

This week we decided to watch Bill and Ted Face the Music so you don't have to!

This movie is not good and on top of that it's chock full of woke shit. I for one would rather be entertained with out someone pushing an agenda down my throat.

It's a Bill and Ted movie for God's sake.

So we discuss the movie and discuss woke culture and how it is ruining everything.

It has been sneaking into everything for the past decade and it's nothing short of propaganda and I'm fairly sick of it.

Most recently it's been snuck right into the newest Spiderman game. This gamer was not amused. If you have the time, I highly recommend reading the comment section.

So we have [] the Chinese changing Hollywood to make sure they're always put in a good light and we have the [] socialists trying to force their version of morals on us in movies and video games and commercials and everywhere else they can.

They can all go fuck themselves.

The good news is Alex Winter has directed a Zappa documentary that looks very promising.

The even better news is that we finally got fast internet here in the middle of the woods and with that comes an exciting announcement!

Love you guys!
