The 25 Coolest Things We Discovered in 2016  

It's not just us right? There are too many damn movies and TV shows to keep up with. When we're not in the middle of a season of Game of Thrones, Westworld, Silicon Valley, Stranger Things, or House of Cards, there are always 40 other shows just waiting to get started. If only you were ready to make the commitment. Your girlfriend wants you to propose but you can't even commit to Six Feet Under, let alone the next 60 years of your life.This glut of TV shows we're experiencing completely fails to lack the steady stream of quality movies coming out not only in the US but all around the world. And the surplus of movies doesn't even address how behind you are on music. Open up Spotify or look at the next festival lineup and you can barely recognize a third of the bands there. And we're not being old fogies complaining about music these days-- most of these bands are good-- we just can't keep up with them. 21 Pilots, 21 Savage, 21 Scarecrows. Only one of those band names is completely made up.So to give a little order to this exponentially insane world, Jack O'Brien is joined by Cracked editors Soren Bowie and Jason Pargin (aka David Wong) to talk about some of their favorite they discovered in 2016. They commiserate about the superabundance of content and Soren gives some completely unsolicited home improvement advice.Our next live podcast is on Saturday, January 14th at 7pm at the UCB Sunset Theatre in Los Angeles. Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark from 'My Favorite Murder' are back for another hour of creepy unsolved murders and even creepier solved ones.

The following year, Gary was invited to join Dane Cook’s “Tourgasm" Tour, and was also featured in the series on HBO. Next up, Gulman served as host and writer for the New England Sports Network’s "Comedy All Stars Series."  Gulman has performed three times at the Nascar year end awards show, at Madison Square Garden as part of the New York Comedy Festival, HBO’s Las Vegas Comedy Festival, and the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. Gulman guest-starred on "Inside Amy Schemer” and his body of work includes a half-hour Showtime Network Special, two hour Comedy Central Specials, a Netflix Special, and four comedy albums.

Friday’s Rare Vinyl - “21 Below Zero”  

Arthur "Big Boy" Spires, vo/g - Johnny Young, g - Recorded October 9th, 1965 - Chicago, IL. Originally recorded by Pete Welding, and released on the LP, “Blues Scene USA, Vol. 4 - Mississippi Blues.”

We were digging through our library the other day when we stumbled upon this little gem, quite overlooked, and for some reason, as yet unplayed. When we heard it, we knew it had to be featured for this week’s installment of “Friday’s Rare Vinyl.”

Arthur “Big Boy” Spires was another great — and unheralded — Chicago blues guitarist who cut a couple of vintage 78s during the postwar heyday. A compelling vocalist with a knack for brooding and dramatic lyrics, his recorded legacy basically boils down to just two 78s — one he cut for Checker in 1952 (one of the first issues on the label, a subsidiary imprint of Chess), and another he cut for Chance Records, some ten months later, in January 1953.

On the same day he recorded for Chance, he backed up Uncle Johnny Williams, but nothing came of it (Williams was another legendary figure in the annals of Chicago blues, who became a preacher at some point after his session for Chance, and lived to the ripe old age of 99). A final session, sometime in the mid 1950s, for a financially troubled United Records also yielded nothing.

Flash forward ten years later, and we find one more session, this time held by Pete Welding, for his newly formed Testament Records. Backed up by guitarist Johnny Young, the recordings were never issued on Testament — with this one lone track winding up on an anthology from the Storyville label. According to one rumor we’ve heard, the other titles recorded that day have since gone missing.

Although the scant recorded legacy of artists like Big Boy Spires can be a frustrating thing at times — leaving us to wish for there to be a little bit more — he left his indelible mark on the history of Chicago Blues nonetheless.

Spires died in Chicago at the age of 78, in 1990. Incidentally, his son, Bud Spires, remained in Mississippi, playing harmonica with the great Jack Owens. He recently recorded with Jimmy “Duck” Holmes, for the Broke & Hungry label.
