More audience failure regarding our Facebook page. Speaking of the Facesbook, we got a scoop on our page about the future (?) of the Intellectually Shallow show. We talked about a local production we saw of Avenue Q. I filed our taxes last week. In related news, here’s our tip jar. Jen read a story about a peanut-butter/chocolate covered burglar. I read an article about huge Chinese billboards that used images of Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and President Obama. Jen went over a story about how meetings make you dumb. We played a cool alt-country flavored track by Genevieve Maynard and the Tallboys. Then, we finished up this episode with some listener feedback.

We promised you one podcast per month. Here it is for June. Consider your ears blessed. I don’t really wanna put together show notes right now. Which, if you think about it really, who cares anyway? Most people just download the episodes, listen once and then delete ‘em. And honestly if they can’t take the time to appreciate the effort that goes into writing a quality show summary then why should I even bother? Podcast listeners. What a bunch of no-respect having freeloaders. By the way, don’t forget to visit our tip jar. I mean, I know you won’t. Freeloader.

I was nursing a cough lolly at the start of the show due to an allergic reaction. We gave an update on Jen’s jury duty summons. Thanks to feedback from David, Rowley, Les, Nathan, Erk and Robert, the audience has unlocked the bribery badge. Well done, audience. Prizes coming soon! I made an officially unofficial announcement about the future of my blog. Also, domain-name conspiracy theories. Then we covered a story about an avenging cock. After that, we discussed how a survey shows that California is full of fat kids. From California to Indiana where they’ve got some serious Baals:
Scientists want to resurrect a mammoth. Using SCIENCE! Of course, no one knows why they want to do this. A woman in India was ripped off when it turned out her husband wasn’t a dude. We played a fine, fine song by The Hold Steady. We brought the whole thing home with an important question from WikiAnswers.
It was a live event, where we wondered what people used to do on a Friday night before we all started doing Internet radio shows from home. I talked about my recent frustrations with iMovie and then we played part of a podcast I recorded that contained a special song I wrote for the occasion. We read off an odd spam comment along with some humorous Craigslist ads. We read over a story about South Korean pop stars who’ve finally caught up to American trends from ten years ago. Next, we covered an exciting contest where you can win an iPod! All you need to do is let the TSA grope you. Then it was time for some fun audio from an MSNBC producer’s meltdown:
Asthma or anxiety? Jen tries to figure it out. I gave the reasons why I’m glad to not be dating in the time of online social networks. We checked our progress so far in this year’s NaPodPoMo followed by a great song by Gina Livingston and a promo for Erk FM. We rounded out the program with a list of “useful” items from eHow.
It’s my birthday! A time for cake. And also time for another GeminiDragon audio presentation. Jen’s sick. But that’s nothing new. I play a personalized song created for me specifically by Pepsi. Only me. No one else got this birthday message. You want vuvuzelas? No one wants vuvuzelas, son. Well, we got vuvuzelas a plenty. We discussed the nature of age and dreams and discovered that age is a choice. (My current age = 12.) Jen read a comment David left for our last program. Also, vuvuzelas. I guest produced All Things Azeroth 201, and I talked about my experiences thus far in World of Warcraft. Matt joined us in the chat as we covered how a 4chan prank could send pop singer Justin Bieber to North Korea. Then we talked about what might happen if Proposition 19 passes in November. Next, we played some audio comparing one song to another, because some old folkie is suing Led Zeppelin, claiming they stole his song. We took a break with a special song by Ken Turetzky. I played it ’cause it’s my birthday and I play what I want on my birthday! We took another stab at our new segment called “Which Is Real?” where Jen is presented with two ridiculous headlines, and has to determine which one is real. Then we engaged in some Skype antics with Erk and Judy (as well as Matt). Finally, we tried closing things out with a partial list of the worst lyrics from the latest Christina Aguielera album.
Look forward to a bonus GeminiDragon audio presentation later this week, comprised of after-show zaniness.
