It’s too warm in here to type up proper shownotes. The highlights:
- Podcass these days
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.
A continuation of sorts to GeminiDragon 13. We were still live, for better or worse (probably worse). Despite a valiant attempt to reboot the situation, technical issues continued. Thankfully, Colin called us on the Skypes to help out. Colin had just recently learned of GeminiDragon, and had some thoughts to share on topics from previous presentations. Some interesting observations on Insane Clown Posse’s “Miracles,” thanks to this article. Also, this Tom Green video:
We celebrated America Day the only way we know how. We recorded a GeminiDragon audio presentation. We were live at the time. (Harold stopped by for a bit. Thanks, Harold.) We wondered how Disney got itself involved in a Gummi Bears cartoon show. We talked about the magical/revolutionary iPad and how a Chinese company is making cheap knockoffs. I’m now playing World of Warcraft, and we discussed a somewhat related story about online shoppers unknowingly giving up control of their souls. I played a a miraculous jam that’s tearing up the Internetz. Then it was time for some serious iPhone vuvuzela action. We played a new segment called “Which Is Real?” where Jen was faced with two different but equally absurd headlines, and had to figure out which one was real. Then we heard a cool song by A Band Called Quinn. The band is storming the charts, similar to what Rage Against The Machine did last year. Buy the song and support their efforts. Things finished up with an important story about actress Anna Paquin.
