Ep19: Weiner-Jawa Civil War3
Weiner in the news, how Republicans seem to deal with scandals more efficiently, and when is adultery compromising to a political figure. Ryan plays devil’s advocate showing by extension of a politician’s disregard of a marriage contract, what other expectations might they toss aside. Jonathan points out all people are fallible and we shouldn’t hold politicians to unrealistically higher standards by assuming that none of them will ever be unfaithful in a marriage. Jonathan spins out into how choosing a representative is somewhat like trying to luck out on a dating service. They boys talk briefly about the next elections, Jonathan sides with hope in the intelligence of the majority Americans not to pick a Repub nominee like Palin just to get Obama out, while Ryan is more pessimistic and totally thinks America by large will blame Obama for the current economic and unemployment situations and get just about anybody different in the White House for the sake of jumping a perceivably sinking ship. Coullier Co, Florida: Couple forecloses on a Bank of America brach that owed them court-ruled compensation with help of the local Sheriff Kevin J. Rambosk’s deputies who foreclosed on the bank as compensation. Within an hour, the bank pays the couple out. You should write Sheriff Rambosk at email@example.com and say ‘Nerd Up, Sheriff!’ Ryan draws the obvious analogy that corporations are like Jawa sandcrawlers.
We take a musical break with the remix to Martin Solveig and Drgonette’s ‘I just came to say hello’ and jump back with observations about the video embedded below. We review the scene depicted in the remix comparing hole-in-the-wall bars in Los Angeles vs. New Orleans; the main differences seeming to be price of libations, cleanliness, attractiveness of people and the hipster-douche-bag ratio. Internet runs out of addresses, fires up a new book to write in: IPv4 to IPv6. Fly the greedy skies: Delta shows their appreciation for our service people by charging them out the butt-hole when returning from duty abroad. Silver lining as Delta gets their just deserts in a deluge of people reacting negatively as soldiers reach out to social media to vent their frustrations. Jonathan shares a tale of being burned by Delta which lead him to trust a stranger and hit the road giving the bird to the big metal birds. Ryan draws in a story of another fellow using social media to leverage power in his favor in securing his stolen MacBook Pro. Jonathan brings up concerns on the evil misuses of security programs installed on computers to spy on innocents and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak’s view that we’ll be the playthings of machines in the future. The machines are already controlling us: a child withers away while mother levels up on World of Warcraft. New WiiU portable game system announce at E3 used PS3 and Xbox footage superimposed on WiiU to demonstrate what their system will be capable of. Lulzsec still douches, Sony still being hacked, Apple’s WWDC top points. Jonathan discovers some things about the Mac platform that Ryan is more than happy to expound upon; Ryan recommends free media player VideoLAN Converter (VLC) for Mac Windows, Linux, and many other platforms available at link below post. Steve Jobs wants to build a futuristic spaceship disc apple headquarters in Cupertino: awesome. Speaking of close encounters: Steven Spielberg flicks! A new Indiana Jones hinted at, upcoming Super 8, George Lucas is a horrible man. Wrap up with list of lists: top films, music, june movies to come and Nerding Out with Ryan finishing off Borderlands, Jonathan on Ken Burns documentary series about the civil war and its memorable theme, ‘Ashokan Farewell’.
