Show #096: The Dance of Shame

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

This week’s episode: we’re in the homestretch on our way to 100 podcasts; the “Big Block Dandies” minion designation is explained; buffs and geeks and enthusiasts and such; the “Water” video project is broken down; we declare our Beatles “desert island” songs; and we recommend some cool stuff and gush about “Mad Men” and are generally white.

    Greetings guys,

    First of all, it was great to finally meet you two in person (thanks of course to Colleen for making it happen).

    Second, thanks so much for the “Water” video. This was my first PAX, and the images in and around the convention center constantly bring back wonderful memories of that weekend.

    Thirdly, while you didn’t ask for audience feedback (but I’m an old fart & will pretend that you did), my Beatles’ ‘Desert Island’ track would have to be “Eleanor Rigby.” As a young kid playing violin (& later viola), hearing that song on the radio really hit home.

    Finally for Storm: the last time Colleen visited me, I arranged for a good friend/Civil War buff to give us a guided tour of the Gettysburg battlefield. She seemed to enjoy it (at least we’re still seeing each other, so that’s a good sign 😉 ).

    Thanks again for signing my Olympic Curling ticket and generally defacing my writing notebook at PAX. 😉

    To Storm – my husband and I absolutely adore the podcasts. We’ve been listening since shortly after PAX 2009. It has become a treat to play in the car on the ride home from work. The “recommends” have been great. I bought Neal Stephenson’s _Anathem_ so it’s on my to-be-read shelf. And Mad Men is on our DVD rentals list.

    We’re also enjoying listening to “Do You Like Star Wars” and “Me Make Fire” had to be one of our favorite songs.

    Unasked, I offer the following Beatles: Desert Island Disc track: Maxwell’s Silver Hammer. I know that it’s not everybody’s (anybody’s) favorite but I love how dark and jolly it is.

    Thanks for podcasting. I look forward to Show 100 and the triumphant return of w00tstock to the Midwest in 2011.

    I downloaded this morning and will listen this afternoon on my way home. I’m pretty excited about the upcoming 100th podcast. You guys should do one of two things: 1) Bring back The Puppet for an extended segment, or 2) Be complete douchbags and just stop podcasting after the 99th episode. Don’t announce it or anything, just stop doing it while we all wait in breathless anticipation. That would simultaneously be horrible and wonderful.

    Any idea when the NYC tickets will go on sale? I keep going to the Symphony Space page only to come away disappointed when Oct 29 still isn’t selectable. Please don’t let me get enticed to go down to DC for the “Rally to Restore Sanity” instead.

    Because I’m to lazy to look it up myself, what is the song played at the very end of this podcast. It’s catchy and I feel I must own it.
