The How To Make A Fruit Fly Trap Show

Show 91.

I know I reveal my favorite song in this podcast, but I have to say, it is the one song that turns my mood around every time I hear it. With eight million songs at my disposal it seems pretty unlikely that I (of all people) could narrow it down. Truth is, I just picked it.

I have other contenders, like 'Dear Prudence' by the Beatles, 'Bones' by Radiohead and 'Selfless, Cold, and Composed' by Ben Folds Five. But the one I picked is just such a perennial rump shaker it had to hit the top spot.

The humidity is kicking in...and its almost July. That's a smile you just heard.

Here's to summers of appropriate length.

The Benny Mardones Is Somewhere Show

Show 90.

Its been a week of bullcrap computer fixing, buying, maintaining, uploading and downloading, tech support, returning, saving, deleting, restoring, rebooting, scanning and crying. I don't mind saying that when my life can start easing away from these machines I will be happier.

I turned 39 and I felt it. Not sure what the feeling is, but it makes a sound in my skull with a resounding echo. It is very much there and everything I do seems to matter a little more? Drastically changing your life will do that. Looking very forward to building something new. I want to know what I can truly handle. Most likely, quite a bit...then I'll be pissed about that.

Oh well. New shows coming in the next two weeks.

The Protestant Shaq Ethic Show

Master of disaster, seven foot- three.

Here's another.

I had to deal with computer fixing dealies last night and it reminded me of how much I really don't like computers. You can't reason with them and you can't whack them like an old TV on the fritz.

Does anything go on the fritz anymore?

Enjoy,
