It’s been a few weeks since our last show. OK, more than a few weeks. Since our last show, we went to the wiener dog races. And other things have happened, too.
And oh yeah. This is the last GeminiDragon episode. Be sure and subscribe to our new podcast, No Market Radio. We’ll be launching in conjunction with the beginning of NaPodPoMo, which starts November 1st.
Jen’s fighting off a sinus infection. But she got to use her (fairly) new health insurance for the first time. That lead to a long discussion of the Affordable Care Act and the upcoming presidential election.
I went to an Independence Day barbecue. It was fun. Also, maybe I should start drinking more?
We finished out the show by interviewing Will Loomis of the band Loomis & The Lust. Will recently filed a lawsuit against British pop star Jessie J. Will believes Jessie’s hit song “Domino” is a ripoff of his song “Bright Red Chords.” We discussed the lawsuit as well as the band’s new album and its new lineup. Then we played the title track from that album, “Sports Suck:”
We made this month’s podcast just under the wire. TV! Allergies! Music/podcasting projects! These are some of the fun things we discussed while recording this. Also, thanks to Nathan for making a donation last month.
It was a live(ly?) time for this GeminiDragon presentation. In typical fashion, my microphone stand broke a few minutes before we began the show. We started off with some important announcements. We’re participating in NaPodPoMo this year and we’re also now syndicating over the old Airferg RSS feed. We provided a brief history of our exploits in podcasting. Then I explained why it’s been a few weeks since our last presentation. We debated on whether or not it’d be better to spend $840,000 on a home in downtown San Luis Obispo, or if it’d be better to purchase an entire quadrant of Oklahoma. We covered a story about a Las Vegas hotel that’s cooking its patrons with a death ray. We played some prank-name audio:
Live, we were for this failtabulous edition of GeminiDragon. I talked about how I pulled a muscle earlier this week, and how it lead to me having a strange drug-fueled dream about a machine-gun wielding kid. Then we played a voice mail from Nathan. The original “Unchained Melody” by Todd Duncan:
We were once again live for GeminiDragon eleventeen. We started things off by congratulating ourselves for continuing to stick to our production schedule. I talked about how I had discovered that former MTV headbanger Riki Rachtman is on Twitter. Apparently, he’s lost a parrot, which sparked a discussion about lost pets. Specifically, lost-pet fliers. I shared an idea for a new business venture that would probably be the most successful thing ever. Then, we examined a story about a heroic dog who saved its owner by eating the owner’s toe. We wondered if the Beach Boys may indeed take Katy Perry to court. The people at your local porn studio would like you to stop illegally downloading their product:
We’re live! Well, we were when we recorded this GeminiDragon item. It was a bit of an impromptu affair. But our friends Medros, Lou, Nathan, Druey and Ben all showed up to join us. As I mentioned during the recording, we’re still soft launching this new project, and this is more of a test recording than anything else. Still, we managed to have another conversation about Subway. We also talked about my new guitar amp, its problems and my experience so far in dealing with the company that sold it to me. We also covered the TV show “Deadliest Catch” and wondered why it is that these guys continue to risk their lives fishing when they could just take their money and go to college, already. We heard a nice voice mail from Robert. Then there’s a cool song by Lizards From Afar that I heard earlier in the day on DarkCompass. We will be releasing some more audio from this session later in the week.
So, what’s your favorite Subway sandwich? Also, see the photos we took during this recording here.
