Nerd Xmas Update

Adam had a great nerd xmas and you all should be able to hear the difference in the podcast over the next few weeks. I don't think that there is any nerd gear that I want that I don't have in my possession right now or is in transit or on order to be in transit. We will be using new sweet studio mics sometime in the next week. I already got one mic and the mixer I wanted. I have been scouring the web for some post processing techniques to improve our sound even more. All using free software no less.
Now for the final touch. Marilyn gave me the go ahead to purchase the laptop that I wanted. It is on order and will be built sometime in the next 2 weeks. I don't know when I will have it in my hot, sweaty, sticky, little hands but you can be assured that I will be making a big deal about it on the podcast. Let me know if you hear a difference in the show once I get all this shit working.
If anyone wants me to stop posting all my stupid geek crap just comment now.


Stop commenting on how I should have bought a powerbook!!! I am the most anal geek there is. I considered that option at length and it just didn't wouldn't have worked in the reality of my digital world place. You rich bastards with your fancy expensive computers can lick my balls!!! Suck it!!!!!

Podcast Housekeeping (Do you need any towels....sheets?)

Well, I have a bunch of announcements and housekeeping items that we need to talk about in the Podcast tonight. These have been building up for some time so I'm going to list them all here so I don't forget.

#1. New Voicemail Number
I signed up for a different voicemail service for the podcast. The one we have been using has crappy sound quality and sends me the files in a weird proprietary format. For now on use this number if you want to make an audio comment on the show 206-338-2494

#2. New RSS Feed
I signed up for a feedburner account so I can track how many downloads of the podcast we have. The catch is everyone needs to update the RSS feed they are using to download the show for it to work. Use the following URL.

#3. Question for the audience
I have been thinking about paying for a real hosting service for a long time. I even talked about it on the last podcast I think. I want to know if anyone sees and benefit for themselves if I do this? All the past shows would be up and available all the time so if you missed on you could get it. Does anyone want this?

I think that's it. I may remember more things before we do the show tonight. More comments are always welcome.

Adam's Getting a Laptop?

Being the uber geek that you all should know that I am, I have been pining of this piece of kit for a while now. Ahhhhhh!! I want it! I want it! I want it! Why can't I have it? It's just not fair! I turn into such a little baby when I'm jonesing for new gear. I just can't help it. If/when I do get this new toy expect more fun stuff in the podcast. It has been to hard to play much audio during the podcast. All that will change with this baby. I have some killer ideas how to crank things up a cock. I sure hope Marilyn doesn't read al this crap I have been spewing out today. Little Adam might be in trouble.


The Great Jimbo Cometh to the Podcast

To all that care, we will be having our good friend Jimbo on the next podcast. If you have an questions for us to ask him or topics comment here or email me. It should be a rockin good time. I plan to get titanic shit housed drunk. Don't tell Marilyn about that though. Also, if I like you I might even tell you have you can call in to show. If you are so inclined.


My opinion is better than yours!

Robert Scoble writes one of the most widely read blogs on the net. He wrote an open letter to Bill Gates trying to convince him to get Microsoft into the mobile music player market. Pretty good take. Here's mine. I know more that any of you other fuckers out there so if Microsoft is going to get into this I had better be part of it or you al doomed to failure before you even start! You have no hope of success without my help and support. HAHA and if you believe that, I have a bridge I want to sell you.

Ultra Beer Bong

Ultra Beer Bong

I can see myself doing something like this. God knows that I love to drink beer as fast as humanly possible. But I'm pretty sure that I would have set this thing up so I could control the flow. I really don't need to be known as "Waterballoon Dum"


I might also do something like this. How much beer do you think it would take to split your stomcach? I wonder if I could make a similar device that could deliver eggnog? Oh something else, instead of creating a drill powered bong I think we should just mainline Vodka it would actually be easier and wouldn't split your stomach. Idea for next podcast. Adam and I record directly after mainlining Vodka. I think it could be interesting and Marilyn's a nurse so what could go wrong?

Nerd Post Alert

I am a nerd. Everyone knows this. At least you do now. I have been even more nerdy than usual lately. I dream of laptops and bluetooth cell phones at night. I write in very short sentances.

Anyway, I really really want a couple of these cheap (cheap=$60) condenser mics that I found a few days ago. And if I get new mics, I need to have a new mixer to make it all work right. Right? And new cables and adapters to hook it all up. WOW, if I had a laptop with Wi-Fi and and an EDGE card I could do a SWEET podcast from anywhere!! You can see how nerds can go into debt quickly.

ONE DAY I WILL have this set-up, or the equivalent in the current technologies of the time when I can afford it. I hope that time isn't more than 5 years from now but it probly is. I feel cold.


Why do I hang out with this nerd? Seriously? Dreams about tech gadgets. Dude at least I dream about like Pythagorean Triples and Zero Sum Games. Uhhh... I mean I dream about hot chicks.

Tom Wolfe...

I've been reading I am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolfe. So far I like it. But I've been reading these criticisms of it and some just don't make sense. They mostly claim that Tom Wolfe is low brow and not really "literary". Who cares. Is the book good or not. Judge the book on it's value not whether or not you want to call it literature. Wolfe has always been good at studying a section of culture. He actually spend enormous amounts of time on university campuses and talked to many students. This is a man in his 60's. What he has to say may not draw a perfect picture of a college campus but it does present some good character studies and accurately portrays portions of college life in today's society. Sure in 700 pages you might think he could be very accurate but he is not doing a research paper he wrote a novel. Novels are also supposed to be entertaining. Here is a quote I got from one response to the book.

What is a real university in the actual 21st century actually like? It's a research institution; an intergenerational transfer station for high culture; a talent sorting mechanism, and thus a gateway to the professions; and a (give or take) four-year holding pen for the children of the bourgeoisie.

To me, this person doesn't make a good case for ALL of today's college students any better than Wolfe. But that wasn't Wolfe's point was it? He was writing for entertainment as well as enlightenment.

If we could set-up something like this it would kick so much ass!!!! It's too bad that big buisness will find someway to shut it down before it even can start. Even if the speed was not very high it would still be awesome.

Phone Etiquette

Two things I hate,

People who answer the phone by saying "Can you hold"

People who answer the phone while they are chewing.

Just fucking wait to pick up the phone ok

Pessimist Motherfucker


I am forever a pessimist motherfucker. I never thought anyone would listen to our podcast and I figured this was just for me and the freak I call Adam. But, I was reprimanded for not adding links to the articles I was posting about. Apparently, somebody else might actually read this. Well, I couldn't find them all but here are a few.

Lava Lamp. http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=573&ncid=757&e=1&u=/nm/20041201/od_nm/odd_lavalamp_dc

CAADE Topics 12/01/04

Ok, so the Chuck and Adam Do Everything show is up and running. Adam and I have decided to post topics on this blog. It may be dumb but so are we. This seems to be a way we can introduce and remember topics without having to worry about losing them. It also gives us a chance to do some contemplating and make sure the ideas aren't to stupid to use on air.

Here are a few I am considering...

Maria Shriver wants constitutional amendment to allow naturalized citizens to run for president. Hmmm wonder why…

South Korean company selling gold plated umbilical cords to 80-100 parents a year

Toy that reads to your kids, because you are a lazy fuck parent.

Afghani’s using camels to smuggle drugs. Use um if you got um

Filming yourself beating someone down and then making it a music video

36.5% failure rate in OLCC tests

Guys arrested for dumping dirt in a national forest

Woman admitting to “sexual activity” with daughters 8 year old friend. Caught be mom finding love letter. Let him shave her.

Lava lamp explodes and kills man with heart piercing glass shard

So sometimes my ideas are good and other times they suck. Mostly I like to talk about random shit I read or hear about. However I think we need to do an entire show about fucking stupid people that don't need to have children... EVER.
