RMP – Ep b27: Shiny Happy People

Open mouth…

…insert foot.

This week we are joined by Richard Gunther of the Digital Media Zone to talk SXSW and geekery. Also, Amos offends every group he can think of.

Show notes:

– If you’re going to attend SXSW, find us (buy us a beer!)

– We’ll be travelling light because we hate packing

– TED Talks:

– Amos watched Joe Smith: How to use a paper towel and Andy Yen: Think your email’s private? Think again

– Kent watched Scott McCloud: The visual magic of comics

– Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs is an exceptional read that Richard should finish

– Airplanes: Kent sleeps on them and no one should sit in the cockpit during landing if they ever want to fly again, unless it’s an incentive flight on a U.S. Air Force F-16

– Stay tuned for “We’re All Gonna Die!“, part II

– Oh, the lovely conundrum of Shwoodisms

– WWE is real, according to Kent, and Richard is a TV junkie…Amos just likes this clip from The Amazing Race

– There’s a changing of the comedic talent in late night television and it hasn’t gone unnoticed

HBO Now is now a thing, coming to AppleTV soon

– Amos is not a market analyst, gold iDevices are not just “for the gays”, and the bezel color matters to your purpose of usage

– The SXSW badges are prohibitively expensive for some of us

– We’ll definitely be at SXSoWasted, partly because it’s free

SXSW for non-badge-holding fools (like us): Unofficial Guide to South By Southwest 2015

BOL is having a ten year reunion show, Richard will be there and Amos (sadly) will not

RMP – Ep b26: LLAP, You Crazy Ass Internet

The Internet went nutzo this week…

…and Amos was too snowed in to notice.

Yeah, these Texas blizzards are seriously cutting in to my tech time.

Show notes:

– Texas weather is dumb.

– It’s Mustache March and Kent is taking part…Amos is not

– SrA Sienna Benton of Dyess AFB Outbound Assignments section is awesome

– Kent’s TED talk: Michael Rubinstein: See invisible motion, hear silent sounds

– Amos’ TED talk: Taylor Wilson: Yup, I built a nuclear fusion reactor

– The Internet couldn’t stand the one-two punch of Llama Drama and the Dress Mess on February 26th

– We miss Winamp‘s heyday and the Winamp goat

– Also, the U.S. Government may actually be doing something to help the public interest (but we doubt it)

– D&D fans should experience the open-source based Roll20

– And if you’d like to expand your knowledge of the universe, take some time to read some of Stephen Hawking‘s works

– The passing of Leonard Nimoy (Star Trek’s Spock) marks the loss of a wonderful talent; LLAP

– A few of our fondest Leonard Nimoy memories: Audi commercial, The Lazy Song (Alternate Video), and Leonard Nimoy – The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins

– Speaking of Star Trek stars, George Takei has an amazing story which he shared on Penn Jillette’s Sunday School podcast Episode 37 – George Takei: It’s Ok To Be Takei

– If you’re going to attend SXSW, find us (buy us a beer!)

– We’ll definitely be at SXSoWasted

RMP – Ep b22: Droning On About Drones

We welcome a niece and mourn a great publication…

…first world problems, we know.

This week we go long talking about drones, but we don’t discuss the shitty play calling of the Super Bowl. Except just now.

Show notes:

– Amos celebrates the birth of his niece, Evelyn Grace

Mad Max couldn’t keep a 9 year old’s attention

– Kent placed well in his karate tournament and witnessed a black belt performing a cartwheel during competition

– The Super Bowl lost to Cards Against Humanity

– Amos is on the Clash of Clans train

– Kent is fascinated with drones and frustrated with the inaction and lack of acceptance by the FAA

The Unofficial Apple Weblog has passed away…RIP authentic, specialized journalism

– This week’s TED talk is Amos’ choice (Kent forgot what his video was): Jake Shimabukuro plays Bohemian Rhapsody

RMP – Ep b21: Addictive Dysfunction

Podcasting is hard…

…but that’s what she said.

This week we talk about talks about something most people don’t want to talk about.

Show notes:

– Kent made gokyu, took his son rollerskating, and finished the weekend watching the WWE Royal Rumble

– Amos took his wife to see Rodney Carrington and prepped watching the Mad Max trilogy

The Podcast Method on the 5by5 network is highly recommended for beginning podcasters

– Kent was a bit underwhelmed by the Fantastic Four teaser

– Amos watched a few TED talk videos, and these three convinced him to give up pornography:

The great porn experiment | Gary Wilson | TEDxGlasgow

– The demise of guys?| Philip Zimbardo | TED2011

– Why I stopped watching porn | Ran Gavrieli | TEDxJaffa

– We take the TED Talk Challenge…well, we kinda created the challenge, but whatever…

– We officially introduce ritualmisery.com

– If you’d like to share your unique military stories, please let us know. We’d like to share your story and help others going through similar situations.  Also, if you have a situation you’d like help with, we’d love to help!

– 2004 BL86 came a little too close for Kent’s comfort and his discomfort was supported by the craziness found at abovetopsecret.com

– Thank you Richard Gunther for the amazing feedback!

– Anthony/Amos/Ethan needs to pick out a damned name
