Show 31 This And That Podcast

Show 31 This And That Podcast
(week of September 26, 2005)

39 minutes | 27.6 MB

We're trying for shorter shows so we put a timer in the studio with us this week. Pat doesn't like it! (surprise, surprise). Pat's mic cable shorts out at the beginning of the show (listen for it! ooh). Luckily Engineer George had extras. Jeff talks about some recent movies, Pat tells about her awful doggity week, and the kids discuss a couple of items from the news. We also have a 7-11 update and the Dallas Minute.

Please vote for us on Podcast Alley through the button above (if you think we deserve your vote). It's a tiny effort but means a great deal for this little podcast. Also, do make sure to vote for the other podcasts you really like!

    Well I let my finger to the talking and voted for you both as you sounded so down about the ratings on Podcast Alley.

    I've been pimping your show for ages to my work mates, but fate has always dictated that my boss always wanders over just as I am about to vote, and it's the old 'switch to a spreadsheet' trick I have to pull off so I don't get caught ;-)

    Please, more songs Jeff, and what about this for a suggestion:

    - an Xmas Airferg/This and That Collaboration Podcast. A mix of your smooth patter, and Ferg/Shelly douoching profanity would be Podcast Heaven. Just the thing to see me through another Xmas day with the inlaws.

    Great show as ever, thanks.

    Great show as usual! This choking thing the kids are doing does sound scary. A lot scarier than when I was in highschool in the early 90's. I never did this but some of my friends did something similar that they called a "Space Monkey" where you'd stand with your back against a wall and bend over like you're touching your toes. Take 30 (I think) deep breaths and then stand up and a friend pushes on your chest. Hopefully your friend is nice enough to catch you when you pass out. Just thought I'd share, keep up the good work!

    I gotta be honest - I'm liking the mid-week release. It gives me something to look forward to...normally I blow my wad on Monday or Tuesday and I'm left endulging my narcisstic side listening to reruns of my own damn self for the rest of the week. Nice show guys.

    Pat - for the record - I'm a beer lover, and I love all kinds of beers, and, while on any given day, something more exotic might be my favorite, Miller Lite, for me, is my regular fridge-stock beer, and I never get tired of it. It's lite, it's refreshing, and it's the original low carb beer (since before low carb was cool). On the other hand, the straw has GOT to go.

    Keep up the good work.

    Ferg, glad you like the mid-week post. I conceptually like it for the same reasons you cited.

    Yay, another ML fan! We can have some at the Podcast Meetup. Ah, well, the straw, that was only a delivery system of convience at the moment. I don't normally use straws. In fact, I think it made the beer lose some flavor.

  • At September 30, 2005 , Blogger Pat said...

    Phil, Space Monkey? Hmmmm, that doesn't really even sound fun to me. I guess that's a sign of being wise? (I was going to say old, but I am so sick of that word/concept!) Glad you like the show. : )

    Joe, yes, more songs! Jeff has a good voice and comes up with some clever lyrics. But, they do take time to make, and that's probably the biggest reason there aren't more of them. Thanks for voting for us. Knowing that our show is liked helps us keep going.

    Pat... beer through a straw?! Maybe cider... but not beer.

    For Jeff, I think this show has showcased more of his... ummmm... wit. "Bits, you say... Help you I will." Dude, the bits are great, and you've never disappointed before. Allow your mind to float and your imagination to run like a little puppy dog from Wonder Woman... more on that later. Now that the call out has come, though , I'll wrack my own brain a bit. Maybe I could do like a "genre of the week" thing or something like that :p

    As for Pat, I think this was the weirdest combination of Pat-titude that I've heard yet to date. First, there's the beer, and I think we can all admit that's a little goofy. Then there's the image of Pat in her Wonder Woman outfit chasing the doggie outside the 7-11. Ok, she wasn't actually in the outfit, but I can only imagine that someone doing such dynamic super-hero style work such as rescuing a puppy from traffic would wear some kind of uniform. Ahhh... Wonder Woman. Sorry, I digress. I digress though, because the other image was of Pat using Altoids to... ummm... enhance her experiences. Ahhh... Wonder Woman and curiously strong mints. Sorry, I need to stop before I lose my train of thought... Nope, it's already gone.

    Another 30 or so minutes of my life I've enjoyed and will remember fondly... until next week, when ya'll shall top yourselves again.

    Wow - such wonderful comments!

    Joe - thanks for the vote. And Ferg and I have talked before about some sort of collaboration - Xmas may be the ticket for that! Oh wait a minute - that takes preparation doesn't it? lol I really do love doing the songs - but I am pretty slow with it and it does take me time. But I'll always be trying.

    Ferg - ML? I wish I could like it - it IS cheap. lol. I just can't beyond the 'artificial carbonation'....

    Phil - WOW. Kids. They sure are weird people.

    Love your show. Absolutely addicted. Keep it up!

    Pat, let's go to see the BigTex this Saturday. Miss ya.

    Jeff & Pat - I want to let ya know that I am not enjoying the mid-week podcasting. It has really messed up my listening schedule... I'd post our show, listen to AirFerg & This and That on the weekend, and fill in with the rest o' my casts during the week. Now, Itunes downloaded this ep. earlier in the week and I didn't notice it until today! I feel so behind.

    Pat - nice work with the Miller Light in the studio. Breakin' the law, breakin' the law! ;)

    I love that little 'whisper' thing that Pat does. *sigh*

    I am finally caught up on podcasts. Another fine show. You guys never disappoint. In fact, no show this week doesn't disappoint either since I've been way behind on my listening. Being between jobs is an exceptionally busy time for me.

    Miller Lite? It serves a purpose, I suppose. I have memories of Busch Light filling that bill for me years ago. Now I drink so infrequently, that I don't worry about price or carbs.

    Strays. Been there, Pat, but not with dogs. We've taken in cats and ended up with them living with us for good. Our max was 4 until very recently.

    Asian Mint sounds good. It is going on my list of places to try!

    New show! Hello? It's October 10.

    What is this? Airferg?

  • At October 10, 2005 , Blogger Ferg said...

    Oh, shut it, Melton.
    We all don't have a "mom" that we can just let come in and let run her mouth for 2 hours, do we? Some of us actually have to create content...

    Great show, guys. Listened to y'all for the first time, courtesy of the link on So Jeff, your birthday wishes to Carol brought you a new listener!!

    Highly amusing stuff, and I'll remain a listener. Comments from the top of my brain:

    --You're exactly right on with the comments about Natalee Holloway's mom. Living in Birmingham, we of course have been on Natalee-overload since May. While I feel for the family, I agree with you. Her mom has no idea who is guilty and who is not -- she wasn't there!! And while I can't imagine what she is going through with losing her only daughter, she has been an absolute media hound. I for one am sick of her.

    --The 7-11 talk made me crave a Slurpee. Can you believe, we have NO 7-11s here in Central Alabama? It's a crime against nature, I tell ya.

    --Re Iraqi women: the perverse paradox of this whole stupid war is this: if true democracy actually comes to Iraq, we may not like the people they elect to office!! The Iraqi people may elect the most fanatical, most radical, most anti-American person that runs!! But, in a true democracy -- that's the way the cookie crumbles...

    --Pat....I heard you say something about "when I was at Florida State..." My condolences. I'm very sorry you had to spend any time in that savage, uncivilized place. Go Gators!! :D
