The Newest Podcast from Barack Obama

If you are not listening to this guy's podcast, or at the very least reading his blog, you are really missing out. Sen. Obama is one of the only examples of openness and transparency in our national government. Even though I am not one of his constituents, though I wish I was, I feel like he really cares about my welfare. Listen to his latest HERE podcast and see if you don't agree.

It is a great fear of mine that this Senator is just like nearly all the other politicians in Washington with all their spin, closed door shady deals and corruption. Although my famous "Taint Sensor" tells me that he isn't. The reason I have this fear is I believe he will be the first black President of this country. And that has the potential to help usher in another decade of growth and prosperity like we saw in the Clinton years. Who wouldn't want that? Another piece of that puzzle is a MAJOR "Cleaning of House" in Congress. Pun intended. Something has got to give there or this country is totally screwed.

Here is to more blogging from Chuck and I. Cheers!


P.S. To learn more about "Taint Sensors" watch the Daily Show for 01/17/06. I would seriously go freaking nuts without the Daily Show.

CAADE E71 Adam Has a Problem

Chuck is calling it in long distance from Dallas, TX this week. It's warm in Texas but it still sucks herpes infected balls. Adam has a BIG problem. Adam reviews Al Franken's new book The Truth (with jokes). A shorter show this time with an uncharacteristic song at the end. Listen and see who we pick for the song at the end.

CAADE E70 Adam goes way over the line

Chuck and Adam are back again with a much more focused attack on some really unimportant issues. We discuss last Wed. podcasting meetup and Adam goes way over the line talking about someone who was there. You'll have to listen to find out who.

Why the fuck do I keep going to those damned podcasting meetups?

Let me start by saying but I LOVE the idea of podcasting meetup groups! What I don't understand is why the last three or four meetings have attended just left me feeling so angry and miserable. I feel really stupid for continuing to go but I can't seem to help myself. It comes down to one thing I hate about going too. It's the fucking presentations! I know that some of the people there are new and don't know all the things that the presentations cover but I find them so boring and long and drawn out and pointless and dumbed down and I do understand the irony of this sentence. It's not that I don't like the presenters either. Most of these people I really like. Some I don't. But it doesn't have anything to do with that. I can't stand sitting there listening to people talk about boring shit even if I like the people. I remember the good old days of the meetup group when we would just hang-out and talk geek. I loved it! Ever since the group got "organized" I have left every meeting frustrated. I love the beginnings of the meeting when everyone is just hangin-out talking. I guess I should just leave after the meeting "officially" starts. I would save a lot of time that way too. Tim, please in the future limit the presentations to no more than 30 minutes at the beginning of the meetings or I'm going to be forced to stop coming and I don't want to do that. Rant ends now.


Update: It turns out that my first real blog post in a long time turned out to be almost completely full of shit. I made the assumption that the three or four meetups that missed were just like the one I went to last Wednesday. I was way off. I really should just delete this post all together to try and save some face but I'm not going to as punishment for my mistake. At least one positive thing came out of my mistake though. I now have renewed faith in the awesomeness of the podcast meetups and I will keep going to them. That is, as long as random conflicts don't keep me from attending, like the last three or four months. Cya all later........

Adam's Political Test

I had to jump on the band wagon and take this test too. It's a little scary how similar Chuck and I turned out to be. I never considered myself a socialist but you can't argue with a 5-minute online political test.


You are a

Social Liberal
(66% permissive)

and an...

Economic Liberal
(18% permissive)

You are best described as a:


Link: The Politics Test on OkCupid Free Online Dating
Also: The OkCupid Dating Persona Test

Update: I guess I shouldn't be too concerned about my score. My wife Marilyn took the test tonight and she is a Totalitarian. Kinda makes you feel good to be a socialist.

While Jimbo and Mary were here in portland visiting for the holidays we made the now infamous Mega-Fi podcast. We also made a video recording of the podcast to see if anyone would be interested and it seemed like fun. I got a digital video camera for xmas as well so if you all want more of this just let me know and I'll see what Chuck and I can do. Enjoy the movie.
