This week, Alexx and Eddie talk about travelling in the age of the TSA.
Then they talk about the bananaman himself’s new filum, “The Atheist Delusion“.
Also, the audio is…better? Maybe? Give feedback! We have no idea what we’re doin’!
This Session, Eddie has a rant on politics (What a twist!). The episode was recorded in the middle of last week, I just couldn’t edit it until now…the warning about the possibility of delaying Session 9 wound up applying to Session 8.5, too. Whoops! So this one’s getting posted a little “early” to make up for it. The text of the rant (except for a few ad-libs) is at Eddie’s website.
Any input on this week’s audio would be appreciated…still working on that! Someday we’ll have real equipment. Someday….
I make no promises about Session 9, but the hope is that we’re back on schedule, which means it should go up Saturday.
This week, Alexx and Eddie talk about beaches…they be crazy, amirite? Outerwear, victorian bathing, and respect for authority vie with discussions about the sandpaper-esque ocean, the cruel mistress that’s out to get Eddie. Then, they move on to and review the new Ghostbusters movie! Show ran long enough that that whole “philosophical thing” Eddie mentioned in the point-five will have to get pushed off to next week, which promises a segment-heavy session.
Eddie sits down by himself to handle the short episode, where he rants about being a dick for no reason, because he’s an expert on the subject. He also gives a shout-out to a listener who posted on the show Facebook, and gives a little TMI on the origin of his name.
Session 8 is on track to be on time, this weekend!
This Session, Alexx and Eddie talk about the Michael Vick simulator called “Pokemon Go”, and about rampant consumerism and Amazon Prime. It’s fun times, even if it’s a short episode, and most importantly, it’s up on time!!!!
We’ll see everybody next week…the plan is to talk Battlebots and Ghostbusters and…other stuff, I assume?
Eddie tiredly rambles a bit in this week’s mini-episode. Did he record a couple versions and hate them all, but get progressively more tired, ensuring each new one would be worse than the last? Yes, yes he did.
But did he manage to get it up on time? You’re damn skippy!. Listen to him rant and rave about the Ark Encounter, the Green Party, and someone who let Jesus take the wheel.
Woo! Keeping to a schedule, what whaaaaaaaaaat!
This session, Eddie and Alexx tackle the Cabazon Dinosaurs, a dozen random tangents, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, Rick and Morty, and the novel Join. That’s a lot of topics!
Join (The novel)
This session, Eddie lets you know that it’s almost like this whole podcast thing is going to be a regular thing. He reads an old review of his of the Chuck Palahniuk book “Damned” to fulfill his “being a dick about religious ideas” quota, opines on the Christian Mingle case and the idea of public accommodation, and finally fills in listeners on what to look forward to on Session 6, which supposedly will come out this weekend!
This week, Alexx and Eddie talk about religious privilege and parody religions.
M2: There is a Zen Story about a student who asked a Master to explain the meaning of Buddhism. The Master’s reply was “Three pounds of flax.”
GP: Is that the answer to my question?
M2: No, of course not. That is just illustrative. The answer to your question is FIVE TONS OF FLAX!
Then they move on to the real important stuff: Timecube and Infochammel.
This session, Eddie tries to record without melting in the heat, apologizes to an entire state for being unwarrantedly snarky, then moves on to some further thoughts on the whole “shooty-bang-bang” thing that people are arguing over lately.
A few links about the statistics Eddie talked about:
These are just a sampling, taken at almost-random. The numbers are pretty clear, though.
On a side note, we really wanted to find a good philosophical defense of the second amendment, particularly since that was the point Eddie hit on: That the pro-gun side has a better position of conceptual principle. But, in keeping with the fact that all politics is garbage, there wasn’t a really good link. But Eddie’s confident they exist, if too lazy to spend hours looking for them. So, listeners (either of you), if you’ve got a good one, be sure to post it here in the comments or on the facebook page, and you may win a no-prize of your very own.
