And Episode 39, which is planned to be the episode with a Live Studio Audience is still in teh works. Question for folks here... would you be interested in listening in, and making your own snarky comments, and if so, what date/time would be good for you?

One Of A Kind And Very Unique

As Tycho forewarned: BarryWatch, random tangents, and a phone call ensue, as well as several grammar discussions regarding the proper usage of different words. It's educational!

Wednesday, December 7, 2011

News news and more news!

Zoey and I recorded an episode today. I plan to have it edited some point before Friday, and we will, with any luck, have it to you on Saturday. It's not a bad episode. BarryWatch, random tangents, and a phone call ensue, as well as several grammar discussions regarding the proper usage of different words. It's educational!

Also, we are tentatively planning for the next episode we record to be one with a LIVE AUDIENCE invited to come join in. So if you read this, and are interested in sitting in, and making your own snarky comments in the chat, we'd love to have you. Keep an eye out here, or on the Facebook (Craigslist Cast), or the Twitter (@ItsOnCraigslist).

Hope to see you there!

Not quite Craigslist, but close

I posted a fake ad in the personals section, because from time to time, I like to do that. It amuses me, and I like to see if anyone gets the joke.

Today, I received this spam response, which I thought I would share with you, because it evokes a funny image.

~~~~~
I know I'm asking alot, but trust me, I'm worth it
And pretend I'm yelling at you so it really gets through your head
I enjoy the beach, bowling, going out for a bite and having a few drinks, or cooking at home
~~~~~

That's a direct copy and paste. No monkeying around with it or anything.

The image that I love that came with it is the image of some chick yelling at me: "I ENJOY THE BEACH, BOWLING, GOING OUT FOR A BIT AND HAVING A FEW DRINKS, OR COOKING AT HOME"

Just picture that in your head for a moment.
Have a good day.

Alright, so, here's the deal

It's been a LONG time since we've gotten an episode out, I know. And I feel you are all owed an explanation, for hanging in there and keeping with us.

Unfortunately, the problem is that both Zoey and I are kind of going crazy with life right now, and neither of us has the time we need to properly devote to the podcast. I know Zoey is busy with REAL LIFE and I'm busy trying to pick up all the shifts I can get so I can recoup from a transmission repair, and also have enough money to buy a new engine head in my car.

Yay.

So. While we both have loved doing the podcast, and want to continue doing it, right now, it's not totally feasible. So the podcast is going on a hiatus, maybe indefinite, probably not. I think we'll be back sometime soon, and I hope we'll be able to get a little more organized in our lives that we'll be able to bring you our little show on a regular basis.

I want to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for listening, and for contributing, and for spreading the word about us. We don't have any sort of celebrity endorsement, no one famous is on our show, and we don't cover anything anyone cares about, so getting our show out there had to rely on word of mouth, and I thank you all for helping us with that. I know Zoey feels the same way, and would tell you that also.

As of right now, we have one episode all edited and done, and just needs publishing. We have one that's recorded, and needs to be edited, and we have two Romantic Writing posts that are ready to be uploaded as well. After we get those out to you, I don't know how long it will be until we are back.

Don't unsubscribe, because I PROMISE we will be back eventually, and you'll want to know about it when it happens. Keep in touch. I've loved hearing from everyone who's written in, and from meeting people all over the world because of this stupid little show we do.

I'll try and post some stuff here for your amusement, maybe do a post of the day/week or something. I feel I owe you all that much.

Again, thank you SO MUCH for listening, and participating, and if you want more of a consistent dose of Craigslist Madness, please go and visit the spectacularly awesome blog run by the lovely and charming LlamaNun, over at "YouSuckAtCraigslist.com." You will not be disappointed. Just click the title link to go there. Tell her we sent you. You'll get a gift bag of swag.

Thank you all so much. I've loved doing this show with Zoey, and doing this show for you, and I guess for myself, though to an admittedly lesser extent, and we will be back.

Until then, be good, go do things, keep in touch, live in laughter, give a little whistle, and don't ever EVER care what others think of you.

SEACREST OUT!

What I Like to Think Happened

A piece of speculative fiction
by Tycho Alhambra.


The foreman gathered up all the papers, looked over them.
"Okay, it looks like we're unanimous. All guilty. That didn't take very long at all."
Silence around the table. They all knew what they had done.
"The question, he continued, "now is, is this FOR SURE what we want to do? Speak now or forever hold your peace."
Silence around the table. No one dared to even breathe.
"Alright, then, let's go out there and deliver the news."
They rose as one, headed toward the door. All except one, who remained seated. Just before the Foreman opened the door, the young man at the table spoke.
"Has anyone read "Murder on the Orient Express?"
Everyone stopped in their tracks, turned and regarded the young man.
"Seriously," he said. "Anyone?" Three voices replied they had.
"For the rest of you, I'm going to spoil it. Sorry, but it's necessary for what I have to say. At the end of the book, it turns out that everyone in the car had killed the guy. They all knew him, had had previous experience with him, and they all knew he was a cruel evil man. They had all planned their revenge on him, as well as the cover story for how they were going to get away with it, except they didn't plan on Hercule Poirot being there. He of course unravels the mystery, and figures out that everyone did it."
"What does this have to do with anything?" one of the other jurors asked.
"I'm coming to that," the young man replied. "Poirot comes to the conclusion that even though it isn't right, sometimes justice is better served by not following the law. Sometimes things have to be righted in a different way than it is intended they be. So everyone gets to go free and the official story becomes the guy was killed by a stranger who disappeared into the night and who, it is assumed, died of exposure in the mountains."
There was a moment of silence, and then "Wait, what are you saying?"
The young man shrugged. "What if we didn't declare her guilty? What if we declared her not?"
"We'd be raked to the dogs and back," one replied. "We'd be the laughingstock of pretty much the entire world. Everyone's been watching this. They all know. They're all expecting this. "
"The entire world," the young man repeated. "That's true. But follow me on this- follow it out to it's logical conclusion. What happens if we declare her not guilty?"
Another pause, everyone considering if this is some sort of trick or not, but then one replies, "Well, she goes free."
"She's absolved of the crime and we can't try her again," another said.
"Yes," the young man said. "Now, keep going. Where does she go from there?"
"Well," a third said hesitantly, "probably back home. Though I can't imagine her husband would want to stay with her. There will probably be a divorce. Her mother and father will be ashamed of her, and she gets on with her life."
"Keep going," the young man said. "What does she do then?"
"Well, in going on with her life, she'd... I don't know. She'd go for walks in the neighborhood. Go grocery shopping. Maybe go to church. She'd do all the things she did before. Book club, quilting bees, whatever the hell she did before."
There was a pause, while everyone took in the commonality shared between those activities, and then slowly, it dawned on everyone.
"...with other people," one said quietly.
"Who know who she is," said a second.
"And, more importantly, WHAT she did."
"They'll know, and she'll know, and they know she knows, and she knows they know."
"How long before no one wants anything to do with her? How long before everyone she associated with stops associating with her?"
"She'll be... what, an outcast? A pariah? She'd have to leave. She'd have to move."
Another pause, as the phrase "The entire world" floated through the room.
"But everyone's been following the trial," another said.
"And her face has been in newspapers, on the internet, her name is known by everyone."
"So, even if she moves," said another, "her new community will STILL know, and it'll start all over again. Everything will be the same, except she won't even be able to fall back on anything. How long until the anonymous harassment starts? Eggs at the windows, maybe rocks? Notes in the mailbox. Phone calls."
"She'd have to move again, and even then, the place she moves to will know who she is, and even if they don't realize it, it won't be long before someone figures it out, and the whole cycle starts all over again."
"She'll never be able to make friends, because no one- married or single- would want to be friendsm or even trust her after what she did."
"She'll never find a lover, because if she did it once, she'd do it again."
"She'd be outcast and alone, if not for the rest of her life, at least for a very long time."
Silence descended over the group as everyone considered this.
"We declare her guilty, she maybe gets life in jail, maybe gets the death penalty. Everyone in the world will know we did our job, but she'll be getting out of it relatively easily."
"But if we declare her not guilty..."
"We get called a stupid bunch of idiotic retards, everyone hates us, and she goes free, but only physically. Her guilt will hang around her, and everyone will know, and she will know, and it will eat at her for the rest of her natural life."
"One more thing," the young man finally said. They all turned to regard him. "This is a national trial. You're the jury. No one knows your names, no one knows your faces. You may be ridiculed as a whole, but once you get out, no one will know it was you."
Another silence as everyone considered, then they all sat down again, and pulled out some paper.

4 quick things.

Thing the first:
Today is our one year Anniversary! Whoo! I didn't think we'd make it, and some might go so far as to say that really, we haven't, since we don't have fifty two episodes, but I'm okay with that. We're both busy people, with lives outside of the podcast, and sometimes life gets in the way. Every one knows that. So, here it is, a year. We're still in production, we have an episode coming out shortly, so I count that as a victory.

Thing the second:
We have episode 33 coming out shortly. I promise. It needs about 20 more minutes worth of editing, and then it's good to go to Zoey so she can upload it and publish it. We also have two Romantic Writing episodes in the can and ready to go. They just need to be uploaded and published. So. we are staying busy, and we have stuff ready, it just needs to go. We're working on that.

Thing the Third:
When I was eight years old, my dad took me to a video store- a little mom and pop store in the mall to rent "The Empire Strikes Back," which I had never seen, and had wanted to. While my dad went and got it, I was free to wander around and look at stuff, and when I came around the corner, I came face to face with a zombie. A big one. Crawling up out of his grave. Not a dry dusty zombie either. A dripping gory SCARY one. The shot cut to a bunch of zombies standing on a hill with the flames from whatever city they had just eaten their way through burning in the background. The new zombie climbed up out of his grave, joined his mates, and they all lurched off to go eat their way through some other unlucky city.

I didn't sleep for three days.

Since then, I've been terrified of anything even remotely related to zombies. I can't even watch the trailer for a zombie movie without getting creeped out. When I first heard about the event known as a "Zombie Walk," I almost threw up. I am TERRIFIED of Zombies, and anything to do with them.

Which is really a shame, because I know that I would LOVE a good zombie story. It's really right in my wheelhouse. A small group standing against a large one and surviving by their wits, strategy, a large helping of luck, and using whatever weapon comes to hand? IN.
Zombies? OUT. Can't do it. It's a block in my head, and I can't work around it. Even listening to the How Stuff Works podcast on Zombies- just talking about the Hatian type of Drug Induced Zombies freaked me out and had me looking over my shoulder all night at work.

So I hear people talking about The Walking Dead comic book series, and how good it is, and the twists and turns it takes, and I want to love it. I want to enjoy it, and get the "Holy crap what?" feeling I get when ever something takes me by surprise, but I can't, because it's FRICKIN' ZOMBIES, and zombies terrify me.

This is my life, my life, my life.

Thing the fourth:
I'm writing again.

Tycho and Zoey Geek Out About Doctor Who - 4. Series 6 episodes 1-4

In this episode we do a whirlwind geek out over the first four episodes of the current season. If you're far enough behind that you haven't seen them, or if you're a crazy person who doesn't like Doctor Who, this episode should be skipped.

Watch Out for Chupacabras

In this episode we visit Washington, D.C. and Chicago, IL. Tycho nails the introduction, eventually. We meet a guy who is unusually honest about his strange or stupid offer, then have a run in with clamity Jane, old-school radio jingles, things you have to find out by yourself, and a guy who is far too modest to toot his own horn. We find a guy we end up rooting for, but he's followed up by a total leech. In a surprise ending, Zoey passes up an opportunity to rant, even though a guy was totally worth ranting over.

Hoh. Lee. Crap.

(Click the header for a link to the item in question)

This sure would make a GREAT birthday present for some LUCKY kid Podcast co-host whose birthday is coming up in a week and a half.

Zoey, get on it. Talk to Derek, my family, my friends, everyone I know and pool your money together. If any of our lovely wonderful dedicated listeners want to make a donation to this EXTREMELY worthy cause, I can provide my paypal information.

For anybody curious...

This is the picture discussed, where Tycho says it's something he can do, and we wonder if it's really something you want to use as your selling picture. I don't have the timestamp, but you all know what I'm talking about if you've heard the episode.

Sunday, May 22, 2011

Horse Cack

In this episode we make our epic return to Canada! Tycho heads to Edmonton, ON and Zoey visits Vancouver, BC. We meet guys with terrible eating habits, a guy who warns us good stuff are coming, and we give a shout out to RinkWorks. Also, Tycho gets away with dismissing the entire literary tradition of satire because pizza arrives, we're assured that better v can come along, and much more!

So, as almost nobody knew, for the past couple of weeks, I've been recording and performing as a voiceover artist in an internet comedy show called "SPF 2000." The SPF stands for Super Pyro Fighters.

Basically, it's about the misadventures of a team of firefighters in the city of [Redacted]. I play Trey Armstrong, and a couple of other random roles. The first two episodes are up, and I thought I would post them here for anyone interested in watching them.

You are not, in any way at all required to watch them, and I will probably not ever make reference to them again, but I am proud of my work, so I wanted to share it.

[In this episode, I only have one line, as a random guy right in the middle. You'll know it when you see/hear it.]

NPM Poemy Goodness

For more National Poetry Month poemy goodness, better sound quality on said poemy goodness, and more class (than Tycho, at least, is willing to put into it- he picked a bunch or common Everyone-does-these poems, while Zoey went for class and REAL poetry), you should check out

NeedCoffee.com, which is a fantastic pop culture website with podcasts covering everything from music, to movie reviews, to Sci Fi Original Pictures.

NeedCoffee is also doing a month of poems, so if you ARE into the whole poetry thing (and if you aren't, you should be), then please go check them out as well.

Thanks for listening, and read a poem a day on your own. It won't hurt you, and you may actually discover something you like.

NPM - Annabel Lee

In honor of National Poetry Month, we're presenting a poem each day for April. This is the first of the series: Annabel Lee by Edgar Allan Poe, read by Tycho.

Squiter!

In this episode we visit New Orleans and Baton Rouge, LA, and Baltimore, MD. We learn that geologists and southern gentlemen are mutually exclusive, find another amateur male stripper, and once more Tycho picks a city that doesn't pan out for Zoey, except for that surgical technologist. We hear a lot of crap from a guy who rates himself a 6 out of 10, Tycho turns it into a discussion about Jaws, and Zoey ends up feeling that mister 6 should be eaten by a shark.

Tycho and Zoey Geek Out About Doctor Who - 2. Blink / Time Crash

Thanks for being patient with us, folks! We're geeking out about Doctor Who again, going backwards while we await the new season. We'll talk about (or, for a fair bit of it, sit and be enthralled by) Blink and Time Crash in this episode :)

Wonderfully Large Nipples

In this episode we visit Los Angeles, CA and San Francisco, CA, where we find out that the only compelling love stories are those that end in tragedy, Tycho cuts himself off mid-rant, and learn the true purpose of bras. We meet a guy in search of his premont home, and a guy who dresses up to post, then we ponder drug induced epiphanies and tricycle lessons. We find out that punctuation isn't required to be well rounded, but bowling is. Let get startis!

Spelunking the Pleasure Caves

In this episode we visit Seattle, WA, Puerto Rico, and San Antonio, TX. We find old party hacks, a guy who over-qualifies, a guy who wants his neighbor to wear your sundress, a contract for love in time for Valentine's day. We read a whole ad about a guy looking for a big booty girl without invoking Sir Mix-A-Lot, run across lonely gingers, and Tycho completely misses the naked girl. Then we close on a couple of terrible jokes and a chain letter.

For Some Reason

In this episode, we visit Austin, TX and Madison, WI. We meet a guy whose dog sounds pretty interesting, one in the market for an au naturel hippie girl, and a fellow who actually understands why his ads aren't working and seeks appropriate help. We consider an opportunity to get in a psycho ex's line of fire, we are disappointed by a verse-writing, caps lock loving, Shakespeare referencer, somebody gets punched in the heart, and much more!

Danny McGuire from Scotstoun

In this episode, Tycho, Zoey and our intrepid guest host Sarah visit Houston, TX, Chicago, IL and Hawaii (again). We find out what it takes to make a halfway decent girl, meet a guy with some eyes, discuss bottom coffee, we discuss the difference between an exercise habit and drug addiction. Tycho falls asleep, but tries to pass it off as just listening to the girls talk. And fails. Towards the end, Tycho delves into casual racism. Again. And everyone passes up the obvious "coo coo ca choo" joke. Which Tycho spells "Goo goo ga joo." You can decide who is right, there.

Peggerton McAssumesalot

In this episode we visit Orange County, CA, Memphis, TN and Hawaii. We find more amazing things available at Costco, an ad that deserves its own soundtrack, water boiling champions, what chivalry is made of, and much, much more!

You Are the Cheese

This special episode is all outtakes, all the time - but at about the 23 minute mark, you'll need this link: http://bit.ly/gwejCj
