Hyper Nonsense (syndication01)
Summary: Oh, death, where is thy sting?! When your wife starts writing love letters to Dick Cheney, what would you do? Put it on a podcast! Also, we share our thoughts on a variety of topics from week to week. Anything goes.
We're back! And we hate everything. Well, not really. Mostly just our theme song, our studio and the problems caused by our audio equip. During this show, we gave an update on Jen's broken (but now fixed) iMac. We talked about our experience at this year's California Mid State Fair, including a concert by the world's tiniest Kiss tribute band. We had a bit of a podcasting midlife crisis and then we finished out the show with a news item about David Letterman and Donald Trump. http://www.hypernonsense.com/mini-peter/ for complete shownotes.
Actual weather. We got it. Or at least, we had it 'cause it's humid in the studio today! During this episode, we talked about my attempt to chase the remnants of Hurricane Dolores as the storm blew thru the central coast. We talked about my recent birthday celebration as well as our recent anniversary "celebration." Then we covered Jen's broken iMac and how we're trying to use social media to get Apple to fix it. We responded to some listener feedback and then we finished up the show with a news article about electricity-generating water pipes. http://www.hypernonsense.com/dolores/ for complete shownotes.
We're back! And our sound quality might be a little off because one of our microphone mounts broke. But we're makin' pods, anyway! During the show, we talked about Independence Day vs. Canadia Day. We talked about the different paper shredder classifications (Hello Kitty, wombat class, scimitar class) and why our home looked like it was being inhabited by paper hoarders. We also covered the recent Supreme Court cases that made historic decisions about health care and marriage equality. http://www.hypernonsense.com/shredder-class/
The recording of this episode made podcasting history! We broadcasted the show live via Periscope using our audio rig, thus making us the first podcast ever to stream via Periscope with high-quality audio. During the show, we talked about the ongoing California drought and whether or not it'd be a good idea to get out now before the Droughtpocalypse happens. Next, Jen opened some birthday boxes sent to us by Tiggr. We read a little bit of listener feedback and then finished off the show with a news item about politicians who get smacked down for improperly using songs. http://www.hypernonsense.com/scoped/ for complete shownotes.
This podcast could be a real life changer! During the show, we talked about all of the fun stuff we did for Jen's birthday. Including cake, cupcakes, dead animals, Greek dancers and more! I told the story of how a dream I had where a vision of my dad pretty much told me to buy a lotto ticket. So, I bought the ticket and we checked it against the winning numbers on air. Then, we wrapped up the show with a news item about racism-fueled Google Maps hacking. http://www.hypernonsense.com/birthday/ for complete shownotes.
After taking last week off, we're back! And we're introducing what is certain to be the next Internet craze: #cheesefryclub! Just upload a cheese fries photo to your favorite social net and use the #cheesefryclub hashtag and BOOM! You're in! Jen related the story of her recent medical appointments and why she's mad (again) at doctors. I told the story of my visit to an eye doctor's office that was nearly impossible to find. We gave an update on our financial situation and talked about our newest Amazon wish list. We thanked Gmail for keeping us from being infected by an e-mail virus. Then, we finished off the show with a news item about how Captain Kirk is going to save California from the drought. http://www.hypernonsense.com/cheesefryclub/ for complete shownotes.
On this episode of Hyper Nonsense, everything's gone wild! We talked about my solo quest to the Bed Bath & Beyond to find a kitchen scale and the aftermath that happened at Buffalo Wild Wings (they're an Official Sponsor of Going Wild!). We made a callback to a previous episode, giving an update on our mission to find RC Cola. (In related news, Jen is obsessed with Canadia Dry ginger ale.) Then, we covered a strange web link that was (apparently) sent via text to e-mail from a mysterious source. We went over some listener feedback and finished out the show with a news article about some homeless guys who tried to sail to freedom in a stolen boat.

We thought about doing today's show with a live audio stream. But that didn't happen because all of the available streaming options kinda suck. Oh, well. Maybe next time. During the show, we gave an update on the whole Podcasts.com thing. Also, we talked about the game Ingress. Then, I gave my idea about how all bus stops should be turned into full-service cafes with free wi-fi. We went over some listener feedback (including a voicemail!). Next, we read a pair of local news items about a crazy guy who claimed that the Virgin Mary told him to eat his own feces (in court). Then, we wrapped things up with Jen telling us about her adventures in dishwashing. http://www.hypernonsense.com/the-ol-hn/ for complete shownotes.
We're back in the studio for a "normal" episode of Hyper Nonsense. Jen's even here, too! On this show we talked about a sketchy "new" podcasting website and why Jen is on a mission to take it down. We talked about a weird experience we had in which another podcast played a clip from one of our episodes. We sang a special song about cats. We talked about a surprise Neil Young concert we got to attend. Then, we read over some listener feedback and we finished the show with a news item about a drug-buying robotic art installation.

It's an entirely different kind of Hyper Nonsense episode. This week, we recorded in the car on our way to Sycamore Mineral Springs resort in Avila Beach, CA. Then, we recorded some more from our hotel suite at the resort. We talked about how we decided to take this short trip to see if it might help with Jen's ongoing allergy-driven sickness. http://www.hypernonsense.com/sycamore/ for complete shownotes.
Jen's not here this week. But don't fret as we've got a special guest who was upgraded to guest cohost. It's Colin from the Ourobouros Podcast! In this episode, we talked about Colin's review and analysis of 50 Shades of Grey. Then, we put the video for Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back" thru the Bechdel Test. We also discussed the current Marvel movie franchise and we finished out the show with some relaxing vibes courtesy of the Daleks.
Hyper Nonsense is back with an all new edition! It seems like it's been awhile since our last episode but it hasn't really been that long, right? During this show, we discussed how pollen is trying to kill Jen and what she's done to protect herself. I tell the story of how an impatient driver yelled an odd "insult" at me. Also, more home improvement news in the form of a dead bolt replacement. We got new iPhones which somehow led Jen to go on a rant about picketers outside the local Planned Parenthood. We went over some listener feedback and finished the show with a news article about a different kind of music lawsuit. http://www.hypernonsense.com/rusty/ for complete shownotes.
We're continuing our promise to bring a monthly interview guest to the podcast. Yeah, we're a little late with February's interview but we think you'll find it was worth the wait. On this episode, we interview Will Loomis, singer/songwriter with the band Loomis and The Lust from Santa Barbara, CA. We actually interviewed Will once before (during the GeminiDragon days) regarding his ongoing legal case against pop star Jessie J. The legal matter stems from the fact that Jessie J.'s hit song "Domino" sounds suspiciously similar to Will's "Bright Red Chords." It's a pretty remarkable story, and Will goes thru all of the gory details he's had to endure over the last few years in pushing forward with the case. Next week, Will submits the final brief in his case to a tribunal of judges that will decide on whether or not the case can get a proper trial. http://www.hypernonsense.com/will/ for complete shownotes.
It's time for another exciting edition of Hyper Nonsense! On this episode, we told the story of how we replaced a rusty old medicine cabinet. I recalled how I've mastered the art of using Panda Express coupons (and how a defective Panda Express fork almost killed me). I'm still wondering about an odd experience I had that includes a van, a bus shelter and a (potentially?) homeless person. We talk about how an upstart organization flew a snarky banner over Comcast headquarters after the recent net neutrality ruling. And more! http://www.hypernonsense.com/panda/ for complete shownotes.
We're back! And I do mean "we" as Jen is actually here this week. My trusty Yamaha headphones finally bit the dust, and my replacement headphones aren't cutting it. This lead to much complaining. And we had the usual technical issues before the show which also made for more complaining. Jen gave an update on her medical situation. Turns out she doesn't have arthritis, and that what's been plaguing her ailing joints is something else altogether. I gave an update on my work situation. We spent a little time out on the desert island. Then, we finished off the show with a news item about an a candy shop owner and his sex toy of anger. http://www.hypernonsense.com/vitamin-d/ for complete shownotes.
