    The IGP Crew Watches - Elvis: That's The Way It Is

    The IGP Crew Watches - Elvis: That's The Way It Is

    It's Monday, and we're back with a brand spanking new episode for your ears to swallow. Another new episode means another special guest that we add to the roster. This week we welcome fellow podcaster, and OddPods Network brethren, Sam from The 500 Section Lounge Podcast.

    We don't do a whole lot of movie reviewing here, because well you know it's a music podcast and all, but sometimes we run across a film that is music related, and just too good not to talk about. That's exactly where this film lands amongst music-related movies.

    "Elvis: That's Just The Way It Is" takes us all the way back to 1970, and isn't just your typical run-of-the-mill music documentary. After being re-edited in 2001, ETJTWIS let fans take an inside look at the process of just how much went into being the machine that was Elvis Presley. Rare behind the scenes footage laid the landscape to several iconic Las Vegas performaces. You might think you know "The King Of Rock And Roll" but this film lets us see a side of Elvis that even his most die hard fans had never seen before.

    It's intimate. It's candid, and it's vulnerable. But more importantly and simply put, it's a damn good film. It's season 6, episode 14 of your Granddad's favorite Las Vegas waitress', favorite music podcast. LET'S GO!!!

    Pretty Weird, Isn't It Al?

    Pretty Weird, Isn't It Al?

    Hopefully, ya'll are getting used to the new format. If not, too bad! Just kidding, but seriously though we hope you're picking up what we're laying down. This week we caught up with John from The Beer'd Al Podcast, to talk about none other than Weird Al, who would have guessed?

    There is about a 99% chance that you've at least heard the name "Weird Al", and thanks to MTV more like a 100% chance that you've heard at least one of his songs, and seen at least one of his brilliant music videos. Having had his foot in the music industry's door since the early 80s, it's kind of strange that he's not basically a household name at this point. Hell, if you're under the age of 30, and are reading this right now, there is a chance that you have no clue who I am even talking about here, which is even crazier.
    Beyond the music, and being an insanely talented singer, songwriter, and musician. Weird Al is also a screenwriter, actor, author, and TV host among many other things.

    The guy has put out 14 studio albums going all the way back to the early 80s and has been nominated for multiple Grammys (winning 5 of them in various categories), yet it still feels like he simply hasn't gotten the recognition that he very well should have. It would appear that after all these years, not only the music industry, but the general public as well have decided to box "Weird Al" in as that guy who just makes those silly parody songs. Nothing more. Nothing less.

    Even if that is the case, it hasn't seemed to have slowed him down, and his core fanbase has been there all along the way. Join us as we get weird, and talk about Al, all while wondering when this guy is going to finally get his flowers. It's season 6, episode 12 of your favorite local polka band's favorite music podcast. LET'S GO!!!

    The Age Old Rockle Debacle

    The Age Old Rockle Debacle

    This argument seems to be as old as time (or at least as old as "Rock" music), and well if you're as old as time, maybe it's your fault that we're having to debate this, to begin with. Hell, we can't even agree as a species as to where Rock 'N' Roll as a whole began. That right there should tell you something.

    With that being said, it seems like every couple of years when one of our beloved Rock legends plays his final note, we have a bunch of people shaking their fists at the sky claiming "Maaaaan Rock is dead", or "Maaaaaaan you know they just really don't make 'em like they used to". The scenario plays out time and time again, and almost always with the same results to be had. Those results being you and I sitting here time and time again intensely debating whether or not "Rock" is in fact dead.

    So....is it? Is the Rock music that we've all grown accustomed to and have grown up knowing and loving actually dead? Has the Rock we once knew morphed into some kid in his mom's basement screaming into an autotuned mic because no one is swiping right on his tinder profile? Has Rock turned into some guy with an acoustic guitar under a bridge belting out ballads about infamous serial killers?
    Or, hear me out here for a second. I know I'm just the intern that writes these things but just lend me your ear for a second. What if, the "Rock" music we're all used to has just evolved and changed with a music industry that refused to get ahead of the internet, and is now scrambling to continuously stay relevant. So come shake your fist with us as we discuss this age-old testament that folks just can't seem to leave alone.

    Evolution is natural, so I'll leave you with this, what if Rock isn't dead, and you're just old? It's season 6, episode 9 of your favorite neighborhood watch block captain's favorite music podcast. LET'S GO!!!
