RMP – Ep b68: Bryce Castillo is the Fu**ing Problem

Bryce Castillo (@brycas) is very connected…

…to the Internet, at least.

It’s a long episode, but it’s full of social commentary and laughter…two things that go hand-in-hand.

Show notes:

  • Bryce is a Twitchie, or a Twitchy, or maybe a Twitchee
  • Kent and Amos watched the Super Bowl and live tweeted the whole thing
  • Amos reached Paragon level in Diablo III
  • Bryce has one of the coolest jobs ever producing Scam School
  • Amos, unsurprisingly, found frustration dealing with coworkers
  • Kent’s congratulations can’t be constrained by time-space
  • Super Bowl 50
    • 50th Super Bowl is not the same as the 50th Anniversary
    • Numbers are funny things
    • Why wasn’t Metallica playing at the Super Bowl? Because they rock!
      • Well, except for this part.
  • Flash will be (kinda) missed
  • Google Fiber is doing cool things for low-income housing
  • TED Talks:
  • Bryce discusses recent rumors and his move to Austin
  • We prove we know NOTHING of the Amish, but we have ideas for them
  • Gender is a problem
  • Amos saw Deadpool…and you should, too. Even if you don’t know anything about the character. Just don’t watch it at the Osan theater

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

RMP – Ep b32: Double-Dipping in Virtual Legacies

Will virtual reality suck the life out of the thrill rides…
