Despite Everything ... Merry Christmas

Dec. 27th, 2009 | 05:24 pm

Despite ...
  • being sick
  • having to return several gifts because someone else bought them
  • the shitload of snow
  • the power outage that kept me from finishing the podcast before Christmas break
  • either the dead battery or alternator that kept me from getting to my piano lesson
  • being held over at work on Christmas
  • getting my Dad's car stuck in the snow in the parking lot at work trying to get home
  • twice
  • getting stuck in the entrance at the prison trying to get into work and almost being late because of it
  • being held over at work the day after Christmas
  • being stranded at my parents all this time with no internet access and no Felicia Day videos ... ;(
  • working for three hours on my car trying to get the freaking alternator out
  • only to find out that NAPA doesn't currently have their alternator tester hooked up
... It's actually been a good Christmas. I'm going to have to go back to my parents' house now ... but I'm going to take a Felicia Day vid with me this time.

later,
Mike

WANC 49.5: I Fight Dragons Megasode

Oct. 21st, 2009 | 06:51 am

EDIT - Forgot to add the link to the episode: WANC 49.5: I Fight Dragons Megasode

Sorry it took so long to get this out, but it took some extra editing just to get the episode down to an hour and a half. For those that want to skip ahead to the I Fight Dragons interview, the intro for that starts around the 30 minute mark.Read more...Collapse )

Got to see MC Chris and I Fight Dragons last night. I ran merch for I Fight Dragons. They were very gracious and awesome people. I also got a great interview for the podcast from inside the Dragon Wagon 2.0!

Thoughts on Psychology

Oct. 10th, 2009 | 01:30 pm

I wound up getting into a conversation about psychology in regards to this article. One of the other people didn't like the fact that it made it seem like ...

"women seem completely unable to use their BRAIN to make the decisions and instead we are completely subject to our hormones and primitive inclinations."

 
I sort of defended psychology with a little analogy:

That's actually one of the problems I have with psychology in general. It describes the tendencies of people as a whole, but in my opinion doesn't describe individuals.

"People" as a whole might get caught in traffic jams. An individual might leave early to avoid rush hour, or alter their work schedule to help avoid the traffic, or make a jetpack in their garage. I'm sure that you, and women, and people in general are more than capable of making intelligent decisions above and beyond the call of our primal instincts.

It's important to note though, that there are still traffic jams.


I'm curious to know what others think. In the past, I've actually been a little critical of the science of psychology myself in the past, so it's a little weird supporting it.

Next Tuesday at the Granada

Oct. 7th, 2009 | 11:25 pm

I thought I'd see what musical acts are coming to town in the near future and low and behold I saw MC Chris and I Fight Dragons are going to be at the Granada next Tuesday. There's also another band, Whole Wheat Bread, that looks like it could be cool ... sort of a mix of punk and rap music.

Idea for a We Are Not Cool podcast event

Oct. 7th, 2009 | 03:56 pm

I've been trying to think of some ideas for some kind of event that the We Are Not Cool podcast could host.
So far the best idea I've come up with so far is:

BACONFEST!
(a bacon-themed potluck / podcast)

It wouldn't be happening any time soon, probably next spring at the earliest. I was just curious if anyone might be interested in attending ...

I May Have A Problem ...

Sep. 16th, 2009 | 07:52 am

I seem to be running out of Felicia Day to watch.

Watched the movie "June" with Jason last night, along with the outtakes and deleted scenes. Then I went home and watched all the special features on The Guild Season 2. Then I found out that Season 3, episode 3 of The Guild was up and watched that. And then I tracked down a commercial for Extra Gum where she plays the violin ...
