Curtis and David hit it good on the mics this week. Talking a lot of smack – much of it nonsense – about the utility of bike helmets; we trawl through Calgary’s greatest and longest running mysteries; painful technical meltdowns with your favorite game console; Curtis’ adventure in cannabis enthusiasts creating their own wedding experience and more.
One gang could rule this city… one gang. CAN YOU DIG IT?
Curtis and David bring back our first guest back to the mic for another round of jabbering! Megan Maclean graces us again to talk about the mechanics of drugs and the personal revelations one can have with or without them; that our phones are listening to us and selling us fancy toilets; how bullshit normal broadcast TV really is; and how many things in your house can you plug into a router?
Curtis and David get greasy on the microphones and greet our lovely, funky guest – Mark McEwan! Executive Chef, rugby player, cougar expert (by proxy), knower of the lore called “Le Creuset”. We talk a lot about the business of slinging burgers and fries, the terrible National, parachute bicycles and boiling food in a plastic bag.
David and Crom hit the mat hard but get up before the bell, with microphones in their hands. No guest this week means the duo can go deep on the toilet paper crisis in North America, the ultimate evil of Fyre Festival and social media idiocy, sneaky cats in the city, Categories of data cabling and the relative merit of multiplexing signal injection.
Crom and David get on the tubes with glorious punk-rocking, steak cooking, health teaching all-around mensch – Phil Brayton. From super powered hearing aids that detect cougar breath to poison kale, we cover it all. Are you a betting man? Will Bernie Sanders live to run for president? We also cover the best and worst shows you can play as an amateur punk rocker. How many shit tickets do you use? We are going to find out.
It’s Crom and David together again and romantically just the two of them. They demand to know how many ounces are in the glass of delicious beer, how they can make money from Kelvin, debate cougar psychology, surf for brand new gadgets to own and track whether digital media can make money… or whether it will matter.
Prepare your body for the Thunderdome. That is the New Law.
Crom and David get slippery with the mics and we’ve got Rob Agate, AKA RobTek, at the table. Jockey of the Discs, part of the management of Calgary’s DJ-owned and operated Habitat Living Sound, and righteous player of classic 8-bit gaming.
Curtis and David yammer at one another about scientific facts they barely have a handle on, the nuances of world-record speedrun gaming, the greatest Hamburgler moment in history and how sad they are that more guests aren’t clammering to be part of this wonderful show.
Curtis and David finish their figgy pudding and then fire up the microphones. The last episode of 2018 happened after the presents were opened and food stuffed into gullets. The duo have no guests (they were all too scared to leave their families) so they have to talk Bearer Bonds, HDMI Cables, Internet shenanigans, good movies/tv, and counterfeit cheese.
Curtis and David bring the funk AND the noise to this week’s episode, featuring our latest guest Chris Calon. Former heavyweight flash coder, survivor of the Cambrian incident, general contractor and passionate lover of all social media (this is a lie).
Nintendo’s badass DRM chips created the “blow on the cartridge” voodoo of our youth (Crom was wrong about the battery, that was for game saves :D). It should be noted this was to prevent cartridge pirating, the DRM of today is a little different animal…
Some info on Segregation in prison’s (we called it Solitary Confinement) and how it might just blow up your brain. (Crom would last approx. 11 minutes.)
