David Byrne is a maniac. There’s no other way to explain why he’d put himself and his entire band through a high-impact cardio routine during a seven minute live performance of “Life During Wartime”. But on the off-chance you successfully Jog Along with David, try a different challenge. Strap on a bass guitar and do […]

So, the Paul Ryan Pick…

So, the Paul Ryan Pick…

| August 11, 2012 | Reply

This morning, Mitt Romney named Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan his Vice Presidential nominee. You might remember Ryan as the star of the feature film “Push Wheelchair Granny off a Cliff”, the subject of one of the most embarrassing Presidential rants of all time, and the guy whose budget plan got as many Democrat votes in […]

I’m still behind on the show posts, but getting closer to caught up. With any luck, you’ll see a bunch of new stuff over at The Sundries Shack that might help explain what’s I’ve been doing and why I’ve not been writing about, say, Episode 157. So yeah, Episode 157, the episode in which I […]

I figure we’ve eaten up a lot of bytes over the story of how Chick-Fil-A has become a symbol of all that is evil in America, how every last franchise should be burned to the ground, how its employees should be harassed as they go about their duties, and how the poisonous hate-chicken should be […]

Okay, so I’m a teensy bit behind on my show posts, since I recorded Episode 156 on July 17. Again. This is why I need a Producer to help me wrangle the content and the marketing and the show posts and all the things that help a really good podcast get a bazillion downloads a […]

So, you may ask yourself, what happened to the show post for Episode 155, which should have been out a week ago? Well, you see, I had written the post and had it sitting as a draft and then, for reasons I now attribute to either ancient aliens or a sudden influx of Higgs bosons […]

The Truth Behind President Obama's Attack on Success

| July 17, 2012 | 11 Replies

Last Friday, President Obama gave a speech in Roanoake, VA in which he excoriated business owners and the “successful” for their rampant greed and confronted them with the truth about how they built their businesses. The short answer? They didn’t build a darned thing. We built it for them. And by “we”, Barack Obama means […]

I did not think I could admire the members of Rush any more than I did before I watched this video, but I was wrong. Oh, how I was wrong. Not only is this perhaps the best introduction to a song I have ever seen, but it’s also a killer live performance of one of […]

If you turn on the news today, you’ll probably hear some version of a story about Mitt Romney and whether he really did fire a bajillion people while he was at Bain Capital. See, the Obama campaign really wants you to believe that Romney is some horrible real-life hybrid of the Monopoly Man, and Snidely […]
