Another unlive presentation. The live ones will be back soon. Maybe. We responded to some feedback (thanks, David and yarnspinner!). We talked about how I filled in for a sick Colin on the most recent Halfway Around The World episode. We announced our first contest! We read an article about how the band Smashing Pumpkins’ new bassist is (allegedly) one of the girls on the band’s album from 1993. We discussed a story sent in by Nathan about a teacher who was fired because of her blog. We played some audio from the news reporter who had an on-air “malfunction” and gave our own thoughts. Then it was time for obligatory Bieber news. That was followed up with a song by JacksonsWarehouse. Then we read another story submitted by Nathan about a real Gemini dragon! We finished things up with an announcement of the 10-haiku-per-day project beginning next month.

We were live on New Year’s eve! We experienced the usual technical difficulties getting started. I wondered why it is that humans decided to have the year start in the middle of winter instead of the summer. We replied to questions that we received from Colin and Les. We discussed this year’s most-wanted gift cards. We paused to fix a minor technical problem with Jen’s headphones. Jen had a story about the Wikileaks guy’s OkCupid profile. Colin joined us via the Skypes. We ambushed him by asking him his predictions for 2011. Then we went over a list of the year’s worst songs. We had some fun reading spam messages. We went through a list of YouTube’s most-viewed videos of 2010. We played an appropriate song by Tin Pan. Since he wasn’t listening earlier, we also got to ambush Medros with his predictions for 2011. Then we finished up with a list of the top ten Twitter trends of 2010.
After that, there’s some special bonus audio from the live pre-show.
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:
Then we discussed how a reality-show contestant is suing Simon Cowell for being mean! Then it was time for a song by Gidgets Ga-Ga. The show was finished up with a list of unusual celebrity-linked products.
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 10/10/10 the only way we know how. With a GeminiDragon live presentation. We gave ourselves some retroactive horn action. Then we talked about our new microwave. We read a story about a dude in Florida who has the same name as singer Justin Bieber. After that we found out why the place where we live is (apparently) the happiest place in America. Next, we played an important public service announcement:
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.
