Show #075: Reclining Up

The seventy-fifthst episode of our podcast, Paul and Storm Talk About Some Stuff for Five to Ten Minutes (On Average), is now online.

This week’s rather introspective episode: we recount our Texas adventures (both culinary and travelary) and respective health setbacks; salsa and Paul’s travel luck; mutual bitchin’ about snow, and a tortured metaphor; embarrassing moments involving Al Haig and flying beer (not necessarily both at the same time); and a super-secret (shhh!) announcement about the next w00tstock shows. Also, werewolves, and Paul’s phone rings.

AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION ALERT: whom would you suggest as possible guests for our upcoming Seattle and Portland w00tstock shows?

    Monsiuor Whe’ton would probobly have suggested this already but Gabe and Tycho from Penny Arcade would be the obvious choice for Seatle.

    How about Chuck Norris? He’s pretty famous.

    I would have thought that your super-secret announcement would have elicited more of a response from people in those towns. Had you announced w00tstock dates, say, in the Midwest, you know at least one person who wouldn’t be too proud to show her excitement… Just sayin’.

    I’m planning on buying w00tstock tickets as soon as they go on sale, but I have no suggestions for guests. Most of the artists I like are A) not from around here, and B) not particularly geeky.

    Gabe and Tycho is a good suggestion though.

    Well, if you can get a Vancouver show going, I’d recommend Spider Robinson right off the bat. He plays guitar AND he writes awesome science fiction. You could see if he’d be willing to come down for Seattle.

    It probably goes without saying, but our good friend Molly is up here in the greater Seattle area nowadays. Wouldn’t be the same without her.

    What *are* the chances of a Vancouver W00tstock? I’m prepared to go to Seattle if I have to, but it would definitely be more convenient to have a local show.

    How about Cliff Mass? Science + weather = awesome.

    Neal Stephenson lives in Seattle. A reading from him would be superawesome. Given the lengths of his books, though, a short reading from him might take all night.

    Ah, W00tstock Northwest is conveniently scheduled a week or so before Reading Period starts. Any later and I would’ve thrown a bitch-fit.

    Also, BILL NYE? He’s a Seattle guy, yeah?

    Clearly *this* is all your fault, somehow:

    More special guest ideas for Seattle:
    Tim Ballew’s (of PUSA fame) newest creation, Caspar Babypants.

    +1 for Nye (though Wikipedia says he lives in LA now). +1000 for Pat Cashman to announce/narrate/otherwise participate at the show.

    Maybe Coulton could give us the hookup with someone at Valve. Bungie would also be cool.

    How about Kris Straub, now that he’s living in Seattle?
