RMP – Ep b41: Richard Gunther Gets A Little Too Comfortable

Kent’s handling family matters this week…

…so Richard Gunther steps up to the mic and runs away with (from?) the show.

Last time Richard was on the show Amos got him fired up over some color choices from Apple. This time, he returns the favor and has Amos going off on the continued pussification of pretty much everything.

Show notes:

– Kent’s mom passed this week…it will be a while before the Force recovers. We, Earth’s Kender, will miss her greatly

– Richard nearly bares all during a video call

– TED Talks:

– Amos forgot again this week…it’s Kent’s fault

– Richard has one word for Tony Fadell’s “The first secret of design is … noticing”: disappointing

– The Supreme Court ended the heterosexual bias of marriage in the United States

– Pike County, AL stopped issuing marriage licenses altogether

– See how long many major changes in American society have taken

– Amos is tired of this “Kinder, Gentler” bullshit

Apple released Apple Music and Amos feels it’s worth a try, but worries that the computers are going to create music for everyone someday soon

– Luckily CGP Grey feels the creative arts may be what saves us from the computer overlords

– Richard, however, found the Apple Music interface a little disheartening

– SXSW was awesome, once Kent figured out his travel arrangements

– We both loved the Uber service and thoroughly enjoyed our Airbnb stay

– Also, Darwin’s Pub has amazing food!

– Kent was thrilled by several presentations

– Hackaday: build something that matters and they will send you to space

– Strap: software and analytics platform that unleashes the potential of wearables for developers, enterprises, and brands

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

– 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 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

It’s that time of week again…

Oh, and we drink beer. Don’t forget the beer.

– Hopefully it helps since he’s testing this weekend for gokyu

– Also, as a display of his great leadership, Kent’s dogs like to eat cat turds

– We are both fascinated by the Internet of Things

Cisco’s vision

WIRED’s expectations

Internet of Things blog

Watch Dogs provides an interesting perspective on these new technologies

– Microsoft shared some exciting news about Windows 10 this week

– A handful developers are releasing their profit patterns and it isn’t good news for those hoping to slow-roll their way to riches
