Things and Stuff for February 19, 2011

As you’ve probably guessed by now, I’ve gone and done it again. This week’s Things and Stuff is now ready to be digested. Come on, little enzymes, get to work! Break it down into it’s component pieces! Dissolve the flesh! Absorb those lovely … nutrients? Oh, wait. We have none of those around here.
Here’s a summary of what this show did:

  • How was your week? Mine consisted of failing technology and cheap microphones.
  • Immature kids with the ability to spoof caller ID are bad.
  • Nick G tells us about a fun deal from ChunkHost. in which you get a free VPS with 512MB ram and a 20GB HD for an unspecified amount of time. Might get one of these myself just for testing purposes.
  • Jonathan speculates on what it might have been like to own a telephone in 1906, based on a book he read, among other things.
  • What do you get when you pay $3.98 for a microphone? How do two of these cheap pieces of crap work in a stereo configuration?
  • Let’s have some music made with duct tape, water bottles, wine glasses, and other standard items from a strange person, followed by other examples of stupid musical things by yours truly.
  • Mom continues to be generally odd, somehow managing to bring together President Obama and a bunch of squeaky ducks. Yeah, she’s weird, I know.
  • My first boring production ever made with Garage band under Mac OSS10.6.6 is introduced, though it isn’t all that interesting in and of itself.
  • FX Radio has been dead since October. After waffling for a while, then playing some tracks, I randomly decided I missed it, and so pulled up several media players (at least ten of them, I think,) and faked it for a while, accidentally creating the “that is correct” remix on the fly. I really didn’t mean to sound like Over the Edge or Shirley & Spinoza Radio, I promise! Well, not really hard, anyway.

So, that’s that for this week. Stay tuned next week for the exciting new sound of the same show going through a Linksys E2000 router running Tomato instead of a Buffalo WHRG125 with DD-WRT. I’m sure you’ll notice the difference, right?
