A red-letter episode as we officially announce the officialness of our podcasting might by being listed in iTunes! Now easily downloadable from iTunes which will remember where in each episode you may leave off for easy listening goodness. Child’s play with elementary theatre, Middle East unrest (still… wow, go figure), the catch-22 of Republican doctrine, Apple minute with the new MacBook Pro’s being announced and the new Thunderbolt tech to surpass USB 3.0. Ryan spirals into more Nerdosity as he questions Jonathan’s actual nerd-ness and relates how the hacker collective Anonymous is spanking intolerant church cults while lone hacker GeoHot is being spanked by Sony for cracking the PlayStation 3 source code but is getting mass public support for his legal defense fund.

'saddle up pardner.
Ryan leaves his corporeal being for some freaky out-of-body experience (OOBE) unrelated to drug abuse as Jonathan enjoys abusing a drug in the form of his new-found coffee appreciation. This gives way to Jonathan’s blitzkrieg on writing off the Egyptian people altogether, detesting other people’s taste in music -particularly Kid Rock and the whiskey bottler / platinum-selling country music superstars Jonathan and Ryan had never heard of: Montgomery Gentry. Then things mellow out as Ryan reviews Black Swan, theater audiences, the Social Network and unnecessary CGI as Jonathan gets furious about Angry Driver: 3D’s formulaic blah-ness and shames the universe for their lack of concern about the snuffing of federal funding for the arts or something. Daddy needs a new pair of shoes: the Shoe Carnival not just a shoe store: it’s an event! Tyler Durden lives on in the worst way possible. Ryan spins the news and Jonathan gets romantic on the phone without paying $5.99/min.
We start off on the wrong foot from incorrect application of Spanish, inappropriate language characterizations, ignorant assertions, mispronunciation of the English language and skid thru the process of wrangling women in the interest of trying to get a girlfriend. Then we move on to Jonathan’s desire to dabble in the exciting world of metal detecting and his take on True Blood. More on the front to bring back the Great Bluedini and rediscovering Dunkaroos.

Jonathan and Ryan examine the anatomy of gentrification and Converse shoes while lamenting things once cool and unknown that become popular, common and loved by douche bags. Jonathan shares the Razzie award nominations from last year and maintains that it is current while it is in fact not; here’s the 2010 nominees: http://razzies.com/history/2010-worst-picture.asp so don’t let us know about the mistake as we’re sure to fess up next show.
Also funeral music, school projects, British invasion of our superheroes and Chopin trips balls.
