S4TW: Mad Men mixtapes, Trevor Noah, and the first rule of Twitter

April 3, 2015

(Welcome to Something for the Weekend.  What follows is a list of some of our shows, some shows that aren’t our shows, and some links from around the Internet that we think you’ll enjoy.  Give them a listen/glance.  Thank you.)

IT BURNS, BURNS, BURNS: This refers to both the song that filmmaker Jason Jude Hill discusses (“Ring of Fire”), and the excellent, Mad Men-inspired mixtape Dana Rossi provides for this episode of The Soundtrack Series.

WE’LL DO IT LIVE: If you happen to be in Queens on Saturday night, you can see Dana and her podcast live and in person.

STAR WARS EPISODE XIII: The trouble with Walt Disney, on this week’s You Must Remember This.  The Sordidness Tracker is distracted by a cartoon duck.

THERE’S NO SMOKING ALLOWED INSIDE THIS WOOLWORTH’S: This is a very good batch of Tom Waits jokes from The Toast.


SPEAKING OF JOHN MOE’S JOKES: Are you a Cat Person or a Dog Person?

SPEAKEASY SPECIAL: The Dinner Party Download drops a show in the middle of the week?  What?

HE FORGOT RULE #1.  NEVER FORGET RULE #1: Trevor Noah’s unfunny tweets are covered by both The Frame and TBTL.

HE’S GONNA GIVE UP THE BOOZE AND THE ONE-NIGHT STANDS: A “Baker Street”-intensive TBTL recap is here.

NEW PAUL F. TOMPKINS PODCAST: It’s called Spontaneanation.  It’s on Earwolf.  The first episode is here.

MORE SECRET SKIN LIVE: This time, a couple tracks from Carnage the Executioner.  Enjoy.

HOW MUCH IS A SONG WORTH: Mike Rugnetta uses math and the Wu-Tang Clan to answer that question on Reasonably Sound.
