Episode Two

The podcast is back for round two. I think it's better in every way, but judge for yourself. It's a little, free experiment. I finished my BA at about 7:30 yesterday morning and had about an hour and a half before I could turn it in. "What to do?" So I watched an interview with Matt Drudge on C-Span's website, while simultaneously assembling the songs that would become episode two of my podcast! Well, here it is! It's a "Very Indie Breakfast!" Click on the limited edition U2 iPod above. Enjoy.

In Case You Haven't Heard...

I've been experimenting with podcasting! No fancy RSS feeds for me. I just offer up links. There are legality issues, so it'll have to remain a little hobby for little-ol'-me. Here's the link. ("Right Click, "Save Link As", etc.) I tell ya, this is the next big thing. It's already bubbling up.

Music Video Explosion

All right, maybe less of an explosion and more of a brief interlude. Anyhow, here's a couple of low-key music videos.

This will take you to a video by my current "band of the moment," Stars. The song's called "Your Ex-Lover Is Dead". Give it a look/see.

This video, I know much less about. Nonetheless, it's lo-tech and fun. The band is "Gentlemen Reg" and the song is called "Boyfriend Song".

Veg out.

Other Side of Superman

From time to time, my friend Brian posts crazy old-school comic covers. I suppose with context, perhaps they're not as awful as they appear. But you be the judge. I'll post a couple of my favorites. If you like what you see, go check out the rest.

"How to Survive a Zombie Attack"

Here's the link. Read it now.

Zombie Aaron wants brains.

It's Over

Quid pro quo.

Crusading Captain Archer

Ever hear of "Landover Baptist Church"? Neither have I. But it's almost certainly a nasty, nasty little joke. I stumbled across this preview for the "faithful" about the premeire of Enterprise circa September 2001:

"Landover Baptist's Christian mole in Hollywood says that most of the early story lines are going to revolve around Scott's faith in Jesus Christ. "He has a powerful hunger to share his superiority with other species," the mole reported... Insiders say that churchgoers should expect the new series (at least the first two seasons) to be much like an intensive one-year Sunday school lesson."

I suppose a "one-year Sunday school lesson" might explain why Enterprise only has 4 episodes left. However I think it might have more to do with poor stories and uninteresting situations.

"Bless you"

Olive Branch

As a show of good faith, here's a link to Fox and Obel's special Passover meal wich includes: "braised Kobe beef brisket and brined rotisserie chicken with traditional starters and side dishes ($300, serves 12), plus they're offering a ritual Seder plate that includes symbolic foods like roasted lamb shankbone ($12)."

"This Isn't The Blogger You're Looking For..."

Phoebe caught red handed at Celebration IIIPosted by Hello

"Many Bothans died to bring us this photograph."

No Soup For You!

The real, live Soup Nazi is bringing his line of premium soups to homes across America! In addition, he's going to open a chain of "The Original SoupMan" restaraunts in the US and Canada! While this is certainly good news for a soup lover like yours truely, the article (from suspiciously omits any use of the name "Soup Nazi". While I can understand that the "Original SoupMan" might want to distance himself from the word "Nazi", I'm a little disspointed that CNN chose to abstain from using the word, as well.

Coming to a town near you.

I think this picture spoke for itself.

But now you can't see it.


Well, it happened. This strike has gone on so long that all the posts about anything prior to the strike have been driven off the page. I guess it's time to kick it up a notch.

UPDATE: I just changed the format of the blog. You can see older posts now. Nonetheless, the notch has been upwardly kicked.

The Most Wonderful (Yet Stupid) Invention EVER

Gaze at it. You can't help it.

It was invented by a grad student, natch. Here's the skinny:

Before you hit the snooze button a second time on this alarm clock, you'll have to hunt it down. The shag carpet-covered robotic alarm clock on wheels, called Clocky, rolls away and hides.

Where can I order one?

Blog on Strike - Day Seven

Word on the street is that Phoebe's seen the blog and knows about the strike. People power. We can move mountains.


Who's stupid? This kid.

I'm sympathetic to that ugly creature below because nature, God, "The Goddess", whatever, made it that way. This kid is just a moron. He's filing suit against his school system for suspending him for wearing make-up. They're stupid, too. Morons, in fact. Nonetheless, this kid is a whiny goth wannabe.
Herndon (dumbass) says his black lipstick and red eye makeup express the Wiccan religious beliefs he shares with his mother, a priestess in the neo-pagan faith. He contends the suspension violates his constitutional right to free expression.

This is nonsense. He's an attention-starved little wierdo who, like every whiny little teenager, thinks the world is out to get him. I've got some advice for you: Get over yourself. Nobody wants to prevent you from expressing yourself. When you express yourself, you only remind us why we shouldn't have been listening in the first place. Lesson learned.

Sorry. That was my Maddox side coming out to play. It must be the tension of this long-term strike.


One strange beasty. Full story here

Blog on Strike - Day Three

The blogstrike continues, unabated.

Interview with Phoebe Maltz confidant. Let's call her "K".

Geekpundit: Good morning.

K: Good morning.

Geekpundit: What do you think of Phoebe not putting me on her blog?

K: It's mean! I thought she put all her little compadres on her blog. Did she ever?

Geekpundit: No. She never did.

K: Oh no! (inaudible squeel)

Geekpundit: Do you want to say anything else about this travesty?

K: Ha ha! Let me think. Don't put that! Let me think. Um... Uh... Ha ha! Well, I think that she should put you on the blogroll! I'll look into it. I'll put in on the agenda for our next meeting.

There you have it, true believers.

Making us all Look VERY VERY Bad

Sorry to interrupt the Blogstrike, but this fellow does a disservice to everything Geekpundit believes in. He's a disservice to Star Trek and the entire world of fandom. Seriously. It's wretched.

Blog on Strike - Day Two

Phoebe's in the crosshairs.

No outward sign of progress yet. But the campaign for JUSTICE has to be making her sweat.

Blog on Strike - Day One

I don't know what a blog strike is, exactly. But until I get listed in Phoebe Maltz's blogroll, this blog is officially on strike!


The Mission: Get on Phoebe's blogroll at any cost.
The Method: Blog strike. Potentially long-term.
What's a blog strike?: A daily reminder of what I want. And that I'm not going to stop until I get the recognition I deserve. And maybe some snarky comments. But that's only if this blog strike gets really ugly.

Moonage Daydream

Maybe I spend too much time poking around David Bowie's homepage, but this new entry caught my eye.

Some time ago, Rolling Stone did an issue featuring 50 "Legends". Each "legend" featured a painting of the artist(s) and a passage by another musician about their contribution. Well, now Rolling Stone, ever eager to find another new list and sell a few more issues, has continued its legends series with 50 additional legends. Among them, Mr. Trent Reznor. The task of lauding Nine Inch Nails was awarded to sometimes-Reznor-collaborator, Bowie, himself.

Here's the most interesting bit:

"I had a strange dream the other week. Lou Reed, myself and a friend known as Warren Peace, were having dinner in one of those old style Greenwich Village places where Pollock was supposed to have fought other painters. Our meal was served by one of the members of Einsturzende Neubauten. I slowly became aware of the house music and that it was infuriatingly familiar. Noticing my quizzical and upturned face, Blixa Bargeld (for our waiter was he) leaned in to me and whispered "The music is a birthday surprise for Lou. Trent Reznor remixed this version of Metal Machine Music as a present.".

Bowie's dreams facinate me. And it goes on. Enjoy.

The Smell of Stardust

Ever want to smell like David Bowie? Here's your chance. Take a whiff.

Coo Coo Ca Choo

The actual Beatles lyrics I've seen have actually used "goo goo ga'joob", but I always learned it "Coo coo ca choo". However, all this frivolity only covers up the true tragedy of the day. With all the fuss over the Pope's funeral, it's unlikely anyone will notice another tragedy that took place today. In combination with my last post, I'm growing worried about the entire animal situation in Indiana. More posts as the situation warrents.
