Show #099: The “Bit-O-Honey” Calzone

The ninety-ninthth 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: continued debate over how to celebrate our upcoming 100th podcast; a Frankenstain’s monster-related challenge, which evolves into discussion of childhood games and toys; Paul incorrectly describes his “buffer size” as his “sample rate;” an Evel Knievel alarm clock idea; Halloween candies and the associations they carry; book recommendations of James Kakalios and Nathan Rabin; Storm continues his analysis of hipsters; and we mourn the loss of Storm’s faithful Jetta.

    The worst Halloween candy has got to be the black and orange-wrappered “peanut chews.” I think these are primarily distributed by Brach’s. The favorite is the Snickers (rectangle Fun Size) as mentioned in the podcast.

    Mary Janes are not widely sold here in MN, so they are not typically a factor.

    Dang that Android Angry Birds is addictive. I have to master it too, but I’ll go about it differently. I’ll go through and get to the end without mastering each level. Then I’ll go back and obsessively master each level. I did that with the beta version, and just started with the full version.

    Condolences for you, Storm, about saying goodbye to your beloved Jetta. I sold my first car, a 1998 Jetta GT, about two years ago. I had just put about $3k into it to have the transmission rebuilt, but I could tell that the maintenance problems were only going to get worse. It was an emotional separation that still pains my heart. I sold it to a couple who were about to have their first child and who fell in love with it because it was a perfect match to their Volkswagen GTI, dents and all.

    Here’s a photo of my long, lost Red and what I wrote at the time:

    I loved my Ford Contour. I’d had the thing since college, I’d covered it in stickers and was mine.

    Prior to my return to the country in Nov ’09, my father got it a new transmission, new battery, new engine…something like $3k-$4k worth of work. And what happens?

    The day after I get back (still being in NYC with Gordon), my father lends the car to my sister without my permission, and she TOTALS it.

    Bye bye car. Bye bye $4,000.
