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 […]

It's Time for a Music Break. Live Rush with a Killer Introduction

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 […]

The Delivery Presents – MSM Muddles and Music with Mark

| April 23, 2012 | Reply

The big lie most often told by the MSM is that they know better than you what is and is not news. Every day, though, you can find an example of just how untrue that assertion really is. I kick off Episode 143 with a tale of funny Obamacare math, a newspaper article that got […]

Yes, folks, the time has come to celebrate our favorite mathematical constant, a number that is both transcendental and irrational, the number that you can calculate by using only Fibonacci numbers (another mathematical constant!). Today is Pi Day! If you are a math geek, you have probably passed out right now from the sheer joy […]

Awwww, such a pretty kitty! It’s only been seven months since Apple launched Mac OS 10.7 Lion, but the company isn’t sitting still: it just announced the developer preview of OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, a tweaked and enhanced new version of the operating system that includes major new features like Notification Center, AirPlay mirroring, […]

For Episode 131, I turned to one of the smartest and coolest people I know — Ben Domenech of the Coffee and Markets podcast, among other places — to join me for the entire show. I won’t even begin to describe everything you’ll get in the whole hour, but I’ll give you two little tidbits. […]

Share my Christmas Tradition: Handel's Messiah on Christmas Night

| December 25, 2011 | 1 Reply

One of my personal Christmas traditions (and I have a few) involves a little quiet, a pair of headphones, and a superlative recording of Messiah by Georg Frederich Handel. I do not believe a greater work of exultation and worship has ever been written and Christmas would simply not be the same without it. I […]

I think this evening I’m going to post a couple videos, just to keep the Christmas spirit around for a few extra hours. There’s no need to rush into the end of the year, is there?
