Hi again! I was finally able to get Dave to sit still for a few more reaction videos!
This one was recommended by @wiggybloogy on twitter.
Dave knew all about Grady Tate and has the utmost respect for this jazz-funk-swing drummer and singer.
However, he does have some questions, comments and a few Dad jokes that he shares with us during this reaction video.
If you want to hear more from Dave, please check out our weekly podcast at http://www.middleagedcoolkids.com
A Jamiroquai request! This time we've got Dave reacting to Cosmic Girl.
Will this be the Jamiroquai song that turns him against the band once and for all?!
If you liked this video check our our weekly podcast on http://www.middleagedcoolkids.com!
Thanks for stopping by and let us know in the comments if there's a song you'd like to see Dave react to. Keep in mind, not all bands are Jamiroquai and he can be harsh with his criticisms. Even if you're the Rolling Stones!
Another fine suggestion from our pal @wiggybloogy (on twitter)! He's doing his best to confound Dave and it's working.
Little is known about the elusive Stepchild and Lash other than the bit of info Dave talks about at the end of the song. Interesting pick, and when Dave wasn't being confused by it, I'm pretty sure he was digging it.
Please forgive the lighting issues, I think the lights we have for our veggie seedlings are wreaking havoc with my potato phone. We'll turn off those pesky lights next time we film some of these.
If you're digging these reaction videos, head on over to our website and give our weekly podcast a listen!
Dave is just as opinionated during that show, I promise!
Another great suggestion from one of our twitter friends.
Dave doesn't hold back and let's us know pretty much right off the bat that he doesn't love this one. He's not happy with the arrangement and he thinks the material is wishy washy. Props to that one guitar player and the drummer though, he would have loved to hear more from them.
He's also a bit confused as why there are so many people in the band.
As far as English bands go, this one doesn't seem to be in the same league as Jamiroquai for Dave.
More reaction videos and our most recent podcast can be found at www.middleagedcoolkids.com
Dave was so engrossed in this listening session that I had to remind him to talk about what he was hearing. And then, he became distracted by the album cover, which he thinks is a pretty good indication of what caused this bands demise.
This was an interesting pick for Dave (thanks @wiggybloogy!) who had never heard of the band, and wasn't quite sure what genre he'd put them in.
On a scale of Zero to Jamiroquai I'm not sure where he ranks these guys, but he didn't shit all over them, so they have that going for them!

Another great suggestion by one of our twitter friends.
Dave has things to say about Vulfpeck, and medical advice as well!
If you have a suggestion, please let us know on gab or twitter.
We have more reaction videos and our most recent podcast episodes on our website at www.middleagedcoolkids.com
Back with another reaction video! This time I surprise Dave with a brand new Stones tune.
Do you think he'll like it? Give it a watch to find out!
More reaction videos and our podcast can be found at www.middleagedcoolkids.com
One of our twitter friends sent this song in for Dave.
Dave had never heard of the song or the artist before, but somehow he manages to figure out two pretty distinct traits about the artist by listening for just 3 and a half minutes. I was especially impressed with one of them. Dave has some sort of music listening/deciphering gene that I am completely devoid of.
For more #Reaction videos from Dave check out this channel and! if you're interested in listening to more recent audio podcasts than the ones we have here please visit us at http://www.middleagedcoolkids.com — we have DSL (we are in the middle of nowhere!) and uploading these longer ones here with our spotty connection has been impossible lately.
I hope you all have a great day!
The Lost Gaucho version of Steely Dan's song with an added drum track plus some guitar.
Our Steely Dan centric podcast episode:
Welcome to our first Dave's Reaction episode!
It looks like a lot of us are spending more time at home for the foreseeable future and that includes us. Personally I'm looking for more ways to entertain myself and you all during this real life downtime. In my opinion, nothing is more entertaining than Dave.
If you follow us on twitter you'll know that I get a kick out of some of the music reaction videos that are out there.
I'm especially partial to Jamel_AKA_Jamal on youtube, in particular, his Steely Dan reactions. So, hat tip to him for inspiring this video.
We all know that our Dave has his opinions on various things, but his passion really is music. I decided I'd present him with a song I'd hoped he'd never heard before and, get his reaction on video as he listened to it for the first time.
After a little bit of a youtube search I found this song [Lettuce – Checker Wrecker] which had just been uploaded within the last week or two. I gave it a listen and it was sufficiently funky so I thought I'd present it to Dave.
Silly me! Sufficiently funky is never funky enough for our Dave.
Dave doesn't hate the song but he has a lot to say about it, which is exactly what I was looking for!
I hope you all enjoy this! If you have a song you'd like to get Dave's no-holds-barred reaction to, let me know on twitter or gab!
Be safe, take care, stay frosty.

Dave & Shecky
Wooohooo it’s time for another Dave On . . . episode!
For a brief moment I considered having us do a Top 5 Power Trios, with both of us contributing our own lists. However, when it comes to music I am just a listener and I realized that I may not even know what the fuck a Power Trio even is. And apparently, I was right. I really didn’t have a grasp on what makes a Power Trio a Power Trio.
Dave to the rescue!
In this episode he tells us what the true elements of a Power Trio are AND which ones, in his opinion, are the best.
I also read to him from ranker.com’s list of Rock Power Trios to see if he agrees or disagrees with their choices.
At the front end of the show we also have a Glenn Scarpelli update brought to you courtesy of New York City’s own Mark Levitt (twitter.com/wiggybloogy) who, for reasons we won’t divulge, has his finger on the pulse of all things Glenn Scarpelli.
We discuss some other things — and there is some pot talk — but mostly we’re all about the Power Trios!
Happy 4th of July everyone!
Heyooo good people! We’re back with a new episode.
In this one we discuss each of our top 5 favorite movies. Mind you, these are not the top 5 best movies ever made. Just our favorites.
As you may or may not know, it is very difficult for Dave to rank things. That’s fine, really. It all adds to the fun.
We discuss each of our picks and play the trailer as well. Surprisingly I agree with a lot of Dave’s movies (except his #3, I can’t even understand that pick) and — not surprisingly — he has neither heard of nor seen most of mine.
Enjoy the show! And thanks so much for tuning in!
For working links for this episode please visit our website! ALSO, all of our past episodes can be found there (even the ones we don't load to youtube!)
We're back this week with a movie review/discussion. We watched 1978's The Boys from Brazil based on the novel by Ira Levin of the same name. The Boys from Brazil is available to watch FREE on youtube. I'll link to it below.
Fair warning! There be spoilers ahead and throughout the podcast.
Recently I read Bill O'Reilly's book "Killing The SS." It is all about Jewish Nazi hunters who searched the world for escaped Nazi war criminals. It is a fascinating read. One of the many things that stuck with me was how eager or willing people were to move on and put the crimes of the Nazis behind them. Some of these criminals had escaped and traveled by boat to South America, where they continued living their lives with little fear of being found. You'd think more would have been done to go and find those folks.
Anyhoo, reading Killing The SS reminded me of this movie for various reasons. Dave had never seen it, and it's free to watch on youtube, so here we are.
We start off with the trailer, which is extremely misleading when it doesn't have to be.
It really plays as if this is a full-out horror movie and it's probably because of how popular horror movies were at the time. The Omen II, Magic, Halloween, and Jaws 2 were just some of the films The Boys From Brazil was competing against. So, yeah. I get why the trailer is misleading.
The movie stars some top notch classic actors. Gregory Peck, Sir Laurence Olivier and James Mason. And though Olivier's health had begun to decline, he is absolutely perfect as Ezra Liebermann, the aging Nazi hunter who pieces together Josef Mengele's diabolical plan to bring the Third Reich back to its former glory. Gregory Peck's Mengele is equally as good, though the shadow of his ..
Once again it’s time for Dave to scrutinize!
This week we go through three TOP 10 ALBUMS OF ALL TIME lists and he gives his opinions on their entries.
The lists in question are from Ranker.com, NME and Rolling Stone.
While Dave doesn’t agree with any one list entirely, we both felt like NME’s list was absolute shite, plain and simple. Their list is bad and they should feel bad. NME or EN EM EE? You feel me?
Anyhoooooo, out of the thirty entries we discuss there was only one black person included (and Dave is not a fan of his) and zero women. Are these lists racist and chauvinistic? REEEEEEEEEE
After we go through the lists we discuss what bands/artists we feel should have been included. Sorry KISS, you didn’t make the cut. But the news is good for you Van Halen!
We won’t be putting this up on youtube because the last time we had a show and included a clip from a certain band we got a strike! Even though it is definitely considered “Fair Use.” So, sorry folks, itunes, bitchute and our website only this time!
Thanks so much for listening! Feel free to drop us a note and let us know what your top ten album list looks like!
Well if you had half a brain from the get-go you knew this shit just wasn’t true. It couldn’t be true.
Picture if you will:
MAGA-hat-wearing Trump supporters lurking outside of a Subway in the dead of night, dealing with the frigid Chicago temperatures in hopes of assaulting a third rate actor from a shitty Fox show. . .
Lol, just no.
But for whatever reason (Liberalism Is A Mental Disorder!) people really really really wanted to believe this horse shit. And they did. Some doubling down even after a few of the more dubious facts started to emerge. (Lol, Sara Gilbert you dope!)
And then! The charges were mysteriously dropped, and his record wiped clean.
I smell cover-up, and cover-up smells a lot like Kamala Harris to be honest.
Dave and I go over the Jussie Smollett time line, we play clips here and there and give our reactions to them.
Truth be told there are a shit ton of fake “hate” hoaxes out there, and most of the time they are perpetrated by the “victims” themselves. Have a gander at this website: http://www.fakehatecrimes.org/
After that nonsense, we speak about last week’s episode and how one of our beloved listeners had an uncle who was considered a jazz great!
Anyhooooo, as always, thanks for listening, guys!

Hi there folks, welcome to episode number forty-three! As the title states, we discuss some major stories that have seemingly disappeared from main stream media’s radar.
Before we start, however, Dave and I discuss and watch the “trumpet fight” video which is insane and deserves more views in my humble opinion.
Dave also has a giggle fit but refuses to share exactly what it is that has made him laugh so uncontrollably.
On to the meat and potatoes! For this episode I picked three stories that are either falsely reported on or not reported on at all any more.
How in the world do we go from Fukushima being #2 on a Top 10 Nuclear Disasters list to playing host to the torch ceremony AND baseball and softball games for the upcoming 2020 Olympics?
#2 LAS VEGAS SHOOTING
After a full year of investigating the events surrounding the largest mass shooting in American history the FBI came up with just a scant three page report saying, in essence, “Nothing to see here.” Seriously? Thanks to the tireless efforts of the de-twittered Laura Loomer, we know that’s just not true.
#3 NEW MEXICO JIHADI CAMP
Wait, you’re telling me that the son of a prominent imam who kidnapped his own special needs toddler, and then murdered him in an Islamic exorcism ritual [at a camp where he was training 11 emaciated children to become jihadist school shooters] was released on bail by the local authorities? What the fuck is happening here? Oh and did I mention that the compound and a shit ton of evidence was destroyed?
I think you’ll agree that each of these stories deserve some more digging. And while we can’t count on #fakenews outlets to tell us the truth, I am praying that independent journalists like Ms. Loomer and networks like OANN will keep us up-to-date on what’s really happening out there.
Other than these news stories, Dave reveals that he has a new favorite drummer. I’m sorry Steve Gadd, Dave Weckl has taken your place in Dave’s heart. For now. Dave explains why he’s into Weckl and his new trio.
Thanks again for tuning in folks, it means the world to us!
Hey everyone! I forced Dave to watch a movie this weekend! Wooo!
When the trailer for this one first came out I was soooo excited. I like Melissa McCarthy (and her husband!), I love muppets and also have a fondness for R-rated funny movies. With all this being said, The Happytime Murders seemed like it would be right up my alley, and I truly thought Dave would also enjoy it.
Anyhoooo. We also talk about Jussie Smollett and his literally bordering-on-insane absurdness along with the idiotic people who actually entertained his clearly bullshit story for even a single second. Fuck them. Every one of ’em.
We talk baseball — just a tiny bit — and Dave reveals his secret identity on Classmates.com.
Thanks so much for joining us!
Ahhh Fyrefest, that music festival no clear-thinking person even thought about going to. And maybe that’s the whole point, really.
Fyre Fraud is a Hulu documentary not only about the disaster that was the music festival itself, but also about the disaster that is the generation of the would-be attendees. To me, that was the bigger take away after watching their doc.
Dave and I discuss the festival, its players [Mcfarland, Ja Rule, FuckJerry, etc] as well as the millennials who happily and blindly buy into anything and everything an “influencer” puts out on social media — I really have no confidence in this segment of their generation when it comes to the future of this country.
We recommend the Hulu version as opposed to the Netflix version because Netflix actually put theirs together with Vice [fake news, sworn enemy of our beloved Gavin McInnes] AND FuckJerry media who are implicated in the $100MM law suit that is going forward regarding the festival. So, I’m not sure about its level of truthiness.
Anyway, thanks for tuning in! We appreciate you!
Now, normally you’d see the title of this particular episode and think to yourself “Ah, Dave is going to go in-depth about James Brown and his music.”
And perhaps you’d be right if it weren’t for an absolutely-draw-droppingly-explosive investigative piece done by Thomas Lake for CNN.
In his article, LOST IN THE WOODS WITH JAMES BROWN’S GHOST — THE CIRCUS SINGER AND THE GODFATHER OF SOUL, Lake presents the facts surrounding James Brown, his death, the death of his third wife and others associated with the James Brown “Machine.”
If you have not yet read this article, we both cannot recommend it enough.
It is amazing, it is infuriating, it will make you question everything you think you know about the music business.
And just as a side note, I mention briefly how CNN used one of James Brown’s funeral photos for the article. It just seemed disrespectful for me to even have pictures like these taken. When I went to put together the picture that accompanies this podcast not only did I find more of these types of pictures from James’ funeral but there were photos of people POSING with James’ body. One of those people was Reverend Al. What a fucking ghouls that monsters is. Then there is also a shot of 4 or 5 fellas standing in front of the casket smiling. What the fuck is wrong with these people?
Anyhoooo, I hope you enjoy the show!
So as most of you know an article was finally printed about Hollywood Predator Bryan Singer. Here is a link to that story.
‘Nobody Is Going to Believe You’
The Bohemian Rhapsody director Bryan Singer has been trailed by accusations of sexual misconduct for 20 years. Here, his alleged victims tell their stories.
But before there was this article, there was the documentary, An Open Secret. Wikipedia describes the film thusly: An Open Secret is an American documentary film directed by Amy J. Berg exposing child sexual abuse in the film industry in California. The film features interviews with victimized performers, who were targeted when they were young boys, as well as industry figures, the predators themselves, and journalists.
An Open Secret is a damning indictment of a group of men in Hollywood who have spent decades abusing young vulnerable boys. We are certain it is just the tip of the iceberg and that there are many other Bryan Singers, Kevin Spaceys, Bob Villards, etc out there.
The documentary is free to watch on vimeo [click here].
There's a clip from Gabe Hoffman's appearance on Info Wars that we use. You can see that entire interview here:
We also briefly touch upon R. Kelly though he really should be his own show. Honestly right now I can't stomach the thought though.
Here's the video of the song we play from him. Fucking bat shit crazy.
Anyhoo, that's it for this week! You really should read the article from the Atlantic and definitely make time to watch An Open Secret. And then stop supporting these fiendish criminals with your entertainment dollars.
Thanks for listening!
Sorry this one is late Bitchute friends. Sometimes Bitchute doesn't grab our vids from youtube and I'm late to figure that out.
Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2019 is the year all your dreams come true!
Until then, there’s our show.
Today’s episode is all about Nicholas Cage. Did you know he had a new movie that just came out recently? Us neither. Did you know that he made 24 movies in the past 5 years? US NEITHER.
What the hell is going on with Nicholas Cage?
The other day we sat down and watched his most recent, Between Worlds. Holy shit awful. Inappropriate laughing, disturbing soft core porn elements, ever changing accents and shit that just doesn’t make sense.
We only watched it for Nicholas Cage, and he delivers in his own train wreck kind of way. But seriously, the movie wasn’t worthy of him.
This leads us to talk about and speculate about why it is he is doing these types of movies.
Other than that, Dave reveals to me that certain members of our population think white people smell like wet dogs. I had no idea that was a thing. HAHAHAHAHAHA.
Thanks for tuning in!
