Preview Mode Links will not work in preview mode

Jan 1, 2010


This show was the one we recorded before my dad passed earlier in the month. I had the show but never edited it, but I went ahead and left it as is with the original date in the opening. My dad wasn't one to have people cry over him, so we're going to get back to it and start releasing shows again. I'm going to start posting just a list of the topics covered and links to each instead of writing something out from now on. My ability to write summaries was never great anyway, so I think it'll be better.

In this week's show:

Italian Cops Wreck Lamborghini
Honda Puyo
Atheist Xmas
African Albinos Massacred
Microsoft Black Screens Of Death
Jesse Ventura Claims Censorship, Lou Dobbs Quits
Climate Change A Hoax?
Vanishing Point

Opening Music: "Alive WIP v2" by George Carpenter
Closing Music: "Born Under A Bad Sign" performed by The Great Oglee Moglee Blues Band

BG you should watch this video. And believe me, I would lover a monster of a ride, but, there\'s just a part of me that wants something that fits the lifestyle. We don\'t need big powerful cars, and maybe its a test of sacrifice to want them but to look for less. Although, if you watched that video up there, Ill take the Atom. Small. Fast. Evil. Fuck, I\'ll wear a snow suit in the winter lol. 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds, and it\'s just nothing to look at. Anyway. Here we are, back at it again.

I\\\'ve seen that video, they show Top Gear on free to air TV here in OZ, and I\\\'m a regular Dvorak reader. The thing that concerns me about the Atom, if I were to drive it here, is the size of some of our bugs, I\\\'d have to wear a helmet, or I\\\'d look like I\\\'ve gone 10 rounds with Mike Tyson. I would prefer to have the ability to go anywhere:

Ha! Congratulations on the old matrimonials. I will offer no advice as my track record is not very good (understatement).

Xmas!? Oh the sweet irony. Why did Christ get abbreviated to X? Yes, it isn\'t \"X\", it\'s a cross. I hope the nazi-humanists choke on it. Myself, I think I\'m more agnostic than atheist but that\'s another thing and a point you pretty much made. In my opinion there is a difference between Atheism and A-theism. The former is that wonderful belief in nothing, the latter is without belief. It\'s a distinction that gets overlooked regularly but I\'m not losing sleep over it... today.

As for Vanishing Point, there is a UK version, Subterranea Britannica.

When do we get a 5 minutes with Joe\'s dog?

You bastards!
Freckles – check.
Red hair – check….. What’s left of it. (More on my face than on top of my head)
Balding – see above.
Left handed – check.
I repeat, you bastards!
The one thing you better look out for, with red heads at least, is our tempers. If you come looking for some of our magic body parts, you better be prepared to lose some of your own. We’ll put up a hell of a fight.

As to your new car, the Puyo, I have one question, What does your husband think of it?

This is more my style, if I had the cash:

I’m not really in to Fords, but I do like this one.

Climate change? What climate change? Nobody really knows what’s going on. There are scientists on all sides of the debate. They can’t all be right. What hope do the rest of us have of understanding it? But one thing is clear, there needs to be full disclosure on who’s going to make money out of these carbon trading schemes. We do know that it won’t be us though, that’s for sure.

P.S. Here’s another pic of my car, perfect timing!
