This week’s episode of The GAR! Podcast includes discussion of the following: the Agatha Knife game; the Nintendo Switch; Mario, Bowser and the hat game; white racist gloves; Carmine Infantino, the Flash, and the Colors of Evil; The Return of Barry Allen; generational superheroes; best and worst candy; Sugar Daddies and nougat; Trump trick or treat; Ray goes off on the opioids crisis; “Green Acres” in 2017; evil Alex Trebek; and the morality of Granny Clampett.

(Ray here. Boy, did I go off on the opioid crisis in America. I really hope we do more to treat this in America. According to Glenn, I went off for about 20 minutes here. If you don’t want to listen to me talking about the history of opioids in America, I totally understand. I’m not an expert, just an informed amateur. But if you’d like to learn more, I highly recommend this recent article in Esquire about Purdue Pharma and Oxycontin. In my opinion, the opioid epidemic is a uniquely American issue that requires a more sophisticated take than the old “just say no” slogan, and my heart goes out to everyone affected. And next week, I’ll try to be nerdier.)

GAR! 172: The Prince Chronology, Part 1

Download the MP3 here!

This week’s episode of The GAR! Podcast presents a track-by-track album-by-album discussion of Prince’s career from his first album For You through to Controversy, including the self-titled Prince and Dirty Mind, as well as the debut album by The Time and the only album release from Vanity 6. We also talk about the early days of The Revolution, the tours, album art, Billboard charts, covers, radio airplay, record store memories, analog television, Andre Cymone, Ready for the World, Taylor Swift, hackers, and our new Twitter feed.

And since it’s about Prince, there’s a mature content warning on this episode, because yeah, we’re going to talk a lot about songs he wrote about vaginas. It is Prince after all.

Here’s the albums we reviewed. If you use our Amazon links, we get a small commission.

Prince, For You.

Prince, Prince.

Prince, Dirty Mind.

Prince, Controversy, pictured above.

The Time, The Time.

Vanity 6, Vanity 6. Sadly, not officially available, and ridiculously expensive, but still fun if you can find a copy.

And here’s the ad from the Courier-Post for Prince’s show at Emerald City in 1980. We mention this on the show.

Regardless, we discuss marijuana, drinking, orange beer, alligator death rolls, “Breaking Bad,” “The IT Crowd,” aging badly, the dark Crystal in San Francisco, Dawn O’Porter (not of “The F Word”), Jason Bateman’s “Ozark,” Hancock, My Super Ex-Girlfriend, The Meteor Man, Blankman, Bill Cosby the monster, too controversial for Batman, the Frork, digital watches, we run down all the Star Trek movies and series, and Alexa tells more jokes.
