The Chinese Diver and the End of Oprah

I felt this would have been a great topic for the show, but Nora wouldn't have it. Quite frankly, I can't blame her.

I think this is the end of Oprah Winfrey. Oprah did a recent show about poop, most notably, what it should sound like when it hits the water and what shape it should take. Apparently, according to her expert, it has to sound like a "Swoosh" and make no splash at all. So in essence, it must sound like a Chinese diver.

My personal favorite quote from the show comes from Maureen, who gives us this little gem: "My hemorrhoids feel so bad that it's like grapes hanging out of my rear."

I have that feeling everyday, but only because I do have grapes hanging out of my rear. It's an interesting sensation to say the least.

Give This Man Some Love

Adam from Madtown Races does great production work. He's the dude who made the cool Podcast Outlaws stinger that is heard on shows from the Podcast Outlaws network. If you want your show to sound more professional, get a hold of Adam at

We're In A Pickle.

Podcast Pickle that is. We were chosen as the Featured Podcast over at Podcast Pickle!

Here's a nifty little banner to prove it:

We couldn't be more pleased to be picked by the Pickle. Go over there and check out the site today!

Jawbone on DSC - sorta

On today's edition of Daily Source Code, Adam Curry played the Anti AC Mashup that was contributed by a listener of our show. Adam played the "Curry Collage" as a lead in to Dave Winer's comments about him over the weekend.

Pretty wacky stuff. What I want to know is AC said he got the mashup off of Dave's server. Why does Adam still have access to Dave's server? Mr. Winer ought to lock that down, me thinks.

Jawbone #41: The Show That Wasn't

Running Time: 17:56
This is an incredibly short show that is fraught with technical problems. We explain what happened to our interview with Mike Nelson. I am kinda down about that. We also lose our monitors during the middle of the show. So we cut it short and abruptly end since we couldn't hear a damn thing anyway.

It is Friday the 13th after all right?

Well, we did our interview with Mike Nelson of MST3K tonight. It was great talking to Mike and getting his take on movies, enertainment, home theatre and other things.

However after we hung with him, I realized that Wiretap Pro had locked up and we lost OUR ENTIRE INTERVIEW WITH HIM! Not just part of it, but the whole freaking thing. There is nary a trace that we had talked to him tonight except for the profuse notes that both Nora and I had taken in preperation for the interview.

I am working with the company that makes the software that recorded the interview to try to get the audio back. (If anyone can help figure this out, I would be eternally grateful) But I am not holding out much hope of recovering it.

I am blaming this all on Friday the 13th. :(

This is becoming a habit

Wanted to do a show tonight, but my allergies are acting up like crazy. Instead we watched "The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou" the new Wes Anderson film. We highly recommend it. I'm hoping my voice sounds decent enough to do a show tomorrow night.
