I feel like I got booted in the head this morning. We went to go see my buddy/trainer Tommy play a show last night and was so wired from having such a great time I knocked back a few zzzquil’s to make sure I could get some sleep. Oh I certainly slept and should probably still be sleeping. I like getting up early, making some tea and listening to Jordan Cooper’s The Morning Dump when he does it live. It’s a nice way to wake up. Now though I’ve got less than 2 hours to finish prepping for Grumpy Old Geeks and this gallon of black tea hasn’t kicked in yet. I don’t want to overdo it though and turn into Cornholio on the show. That’s happened before. It’s not pretty.
On this week’s show, Jason DeFillippo and Alex Knight join us to judge & score the outrage at the Oscars, Lenovo’s preloaded adware on laptops, Jessica Williams declining the Daily Show host chair, Rudy Giuliani claiming the president doesn’t love America, strip-searching students, offensive Black History Month menus, and play a game of “Worse Than Hitler”.
I was a guest co-host on The Art of Charm podcast and got to talk to Marc Goodman, the author of the new book Future Crimes: Everything Is Connected, Everyone Is Vulnerable and What We Can Do About It.
This week we’re watching Wayne’s World from 1992 starring Mike Myers, Dana Carvey, Tia Carrera, and Rob Lowe. Directed by Penelope Spheeris.
Complaining for good health; the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week in security; the Winter is Coming rule; drones, faux skylights and King Tut; brain games and HQ audio debunking; wallet (sans chain); retweeting to make a difference!
Intros, updates, and a little customer analysis of the podcast “school” that shall not be added to this description because I don’t want to give them any SEO juice.
Blockin’ ads, lyin’ fitbits, dumpin’ on Prius, searchin’ on the dark web, brewin’ expensive tea, laughin’ at Kayne, talikin’ to TVs, dyin’ on Facebook, cryin’ for Aibo, feelin’ bad for shaming, baskin’ in comment love. Or did we misremember it all?
Robert Fogarty decided he wanted to go “Full Hemingway” for Halloween back in 2012. I was down in San Diego a few days before and we went out on a cruise of the harbor and I snapped this shot of him. The harbor tours in San Diego are might fun and even better when you bring along your own literary hero.
