Episode 164- Musical Magnus #01- Crazy What You Couldve Had- R.E.M.- Out of Time (with Tom Panarese!)

Trentus Magnus September 6, 2016

In this week’s ball-jamming episode, Magnus begins something. Something new. Something exciting.

Something musical!

Yes indeed, beginning this week is Musical Magnus, an irregular feature of Trentus Magnus Punches Reality that will appear on the show whenever your wise leader feels like making one.

To inaugurate the beginning of the launch of the Musical Magnus start-up premiere, Tom Panarese from the Pop Culture Affidavit and In-Country podcasts was persuaded (by a crowbar, a blow torch and a set of jumper cables) into joining in!

And what is this adventure’s album, you ask?

Why, it’s none other than R.E.M.’s 1991 effort ‘Out of Time’. Yes, R.E.M.’s major label breakthrough into mainstream commercial success!

Did Magnus and Panarese love and cherish this album? Or did they loathe and mock it?

A better question to ask would be why they’d spend nearly three hours talking about an album if they despised it.

Points are raised, songs are analyzed, music is critiqued, tangents are followed to their meandering conclusion and you could fairly say a rad time is had by all!

Due to the deluge of ass-kickery, unfortunately there’s just no time for listener feedback this week. But don’t whine and complain about it because some feedback was addressed just last week and there’s more to come in the future!

Patience! The vast backlog of feedback will be addressed in due time. Fear not!

In the meantime, though, don’t let the lack of feedback this time get you down! You can still offer your feeble effort at tribute! You humble serfs are always welcome to kiss your benevolent leader’s ring. Corrupt DiManzocorp interns are ready, willing, able and eager to accept your bribe to present your meager missives to your wise emperor. The email address to use is trentusmagnus@gmail.com as the other seems to be having technical problems.

In an another sublime act of truly unprecedented charity, your emperor permits you lowly rabble to suggest topics for a future episode. Thus, petitions may be sent to trentusmagnus@gmail.com for DiManzocorp interns to review, whereupon your leader might consider thinking about the possibility of potentially discussing whatever you have in mind some day. And that’s a promise!
