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.
Alberta political animals demand the curtailing of minimum wage increases.
Some big bitch cougar went buck-wild on a poor farmer’s livestock and the news item is written like the lead-in of a slasher film.
Apple lowers the boom on app developers who monkey with screen recordings.
Germany tells Facebook to get their shit off the teutonic lawn.
The end is Nigh.
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).
Galileo Gallilei broke down that sick oscillation knowledge so YOU could tell the time.
You ready for Check stop this Christmas? Because the game just got a whole lot more serious.
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.)
Curtis and David return from the fires of Mount Doom with new thoughts. This episode enjoys the dulcet tones of Erik Larson. Owner and Operator of Calgary Cycle – Pure, life-time cycling enthusiast, pen-monger, inner ear warrior and ready to take on Marvel’s C-list bad guys.
Here’s Erik as his alter-ego, Biggie Claus:
Where can you get the best pen? There is at least one source… (we are not a paid advertiser… of anything actually.)
Erik’s current reading – Jocko Willink’s “Extreme Ownership”
‘Member BioPace? David remembers BioPace…
Feast your eyes on… THE OWL.
Curtis and David celebrate life by yelling into microphones once more. This episode enjoyed, briefly but powerfully, the stylings of Neil Warren. Owner and operator of Alpine Threadworks, ACMG ski guide, and bringer of six-packs.
Here’s Neil doing his thing on a mountain:
UNFORTUNATELY… Neil was forced to leave the episode early due to a family emergency. So our two heroes have filled the air with talk of a gigantic Cow, the Calgarian who made 52 different gins and we played our guest’s lightning round against each other.
Once again, we deliver what you crave.
*UPDATE: EVERYONE IS SAFE AND OKAY*
We remember people’s names! Hi Scott Felter of Porcelain Rocket
And here’s a photo Crom took while shooting at Hexagon Game Cafe. ENJOY YOURSELVES.
Curtis and David heat up the tubes and deliver our most excited guest yet. Wil Knoll is Smashing – Actor, Nerd Master, Beer Slayer, and Champion of oblivious Bike riders across the globe and a member of so many cools things you need to check out his site to truly comprehend – Wil joins the two microwave lasagnas to discuss getting injured on the job, Calgary getting hardcore honey-dicked by Amazon, installing BSD over your router’s previous OS, and the most aggressive conversation anyone has ever had about murderous self-driving cars.
Wil Knoll Headshot —
(look at this man’s headshot. He is fine.)
The Verge offers up global preferences for who self-driving cars will mangle in the event of a crash.
The day Calgary realized Amazon don’t give an F about us.
Crom drew this albatross after we talked about it. This drawing is not good. We have told him about how bad he is at the drawing. He was unfazed.
One of the many dope project Wil has been involved in – Calgary Protospace
Curtis and David keep turning on the mics (despite all this Olympic voting to do). Tyler Hellard, author and defender of Spotify, joins the duo to talk about Nightmare mascots, the utility of cassette tapes, Depressing Netflix shows, The End is Nigh for Olympics, Death races, and Man’s Search for Meaning… sort of.
Calgary’s Olympic vote – Results in a big ol’ NOPE.
And if you have all those cassettes – you’ll need something to play ’em on.
