Ms. Information sez a bunch of things: "Subdivisions is my favorite Rush tune!" and "I always love hearing the Ukrainian songs." and "Triologic plus Andy Kowal rock my world!" and asks "Is there actually a restaurant where the waiters wear assless chaps? Because I need to know."
Hope you get to eat some Finnish candy you know ammonium chloride.
Re: Tressa. Yes, I am that guy. Excellent recollection!
There was a Mika from Finland who asked about the differences between Ukrainian & Russian in (I think) episode 44. One and the same?
I'm nervous about posting a comment because I'm afraid Geo will notice me, and then i'll be star-struck. I don't get star-struck by movie stars (who're they anyway??), but I do get star-struck by people I hold to be very awesome.. pwew, I just had to comment once to get the ball rolling.
Congrats on winning the golden ticket Mika, and Geo, if you need an assistant, or someone who can pretend to be your assistant on the plane ride... let me know, i think i have a cardboard cutout of Picard you could barrow. =)
Geo, did you get another i-Phone? Did you go with another type of phone? Or did you decide to go back to be phoneless?
Congrats Mika! I was so hoping to get the ticket. I am in Ford City, Pennsylvania and had a club (owned by a buddy) that was going to be the place. Maybe next time.
Like your show, been listening since the one with the greasy dj who wouldn't get off stage after the bat mitsva.
I'm not musical, but I notice you answer technical musical questions. In Led Zepplin's Kashmir, it sounds like cello's are going up the scale, and a bunch of instruments go down scale 3 long, 3 short, then they come back up the stairs a little and then go down again 3 long three short etc. Then when they get to the bottom the cellos start going back up. What is that called? Is that changing keys or chord progressions or something?
Like I said, I'm not musical!
A trailer for a certain Bad Astronomer's Sooper Seekrit Project has leaked and/or been released. Not sure...it just showed up at Skepchick and Pharyngula. I do hope some Geo finds it's way onto that show's soundtrack... :)
Finland! That is fantastic! :D It is! :D We'll offer to sell off Richard's kidneys, if it helps...
And yes, that's why I don't have an iPhone.
Mika, congratulations! Can I come over? What's airfare these days...? :)
Congrats to Mika!
If anyone starts using the lost iPhone, I believe Apple can track it down for you since it has a unique serial number originally registered with you.
I always wear a tux when I perform, but to say I look like a monkey in a tux would be an insult to monkeys.
"Finland, Finland, Finland
The country where I'd like to be..."
Congrats, Mika! I guessed India. :)
Thank you two and thank you in advance to all who congratulate me. I live near Helsinki in the city of Vantaa, most famous for the Helsinki-Vantaa airport.
Not to be pedantic or anything, but it was one Schaffer the Darklord that was on stage after you at Nerdapalooza, not Frontalot. Just in case anyone was interested in other Nerdaplooza musicians and all.
How cool is that? Yeah there's some travel expense involved, but how cool is it that you have fans there? (Not trying to spoil anything)
Congrats to you Mika!
Did you know that taking a photo of yourself adds 10 kg and makes you look unshaven? I didn't know my ugly mug would be plastered on the net
