wow. that handset is hillarious. Is it for real? I might get one to go with my regular headset 8-B

Great podcast. I so fucking hate the Butterfly Kisses song, too. I used to call it \\\"Pedophile Kisses\\\" because the lyrics creeped the fuck out of me.

Loved the jab at We are the World intro, but did you have to feed Tee Morris\\\'s ego more than it already has been?

over seventeen years ago

Hehe...friends of mine in college used to have to play \\\"Wonderful Tonight\\\" all the time so after a while they would change up the lyrics at the end...

...oh my darling, please put out the cat tonight.

Here\\\'s a nice alternative for the bluetooth headset... It\\\'s a bluetooth headset. A replica of the old bell telephone headset.


I love the Podcast.

From probably the only listener in Slovenia.

Yes we have the Internet. Optical actually....

I LOVE IT. I\\\'m going to have to get one...
Too freakin cool.

Slovenia! Even MORE COOL.

Thanks for listening...

George, I\\\'m loving the podcast and look forward to it every week. I have an English language nitpick to offer if you\\\'d like to use it -- \\\"discrete\\\" (separate) vs. \\\"discreet\\\" (keeping things on the downlow). This one drives me insane! (And ever since your rant on \\\"apropo\\\" vs. \\\"appropriate\\\", I\\\'ve begun to notice just how much \\\"apropo\\\" is misused these days. Sad, sad, sad.) Keep up the excellent work and happy belated birthday!

Good one Pam! Did you know that Frank Zappa used to have a label called \\\"Discreet!\\\" There was the \\\"on the down low\\\" nature of the label, PLUS it was a combination of Disc, and \\\"Reet!\\\" a 50\\\'s expresion meaning cool. I always thought that was purty durn clever. I\\\'ll mention your rant to Minoishe... I\\\'m sure he\\\'ll mention it. Thanks!

it seems you don\\\'t have an email address here so I\\\'ll leave you a thread on the comments page. Anywho there is an article knocking down Blu-ray discs. I thought you might be interested since you just got an HD Dvd player. You can check it out at:

enjoy :)

P.S. I\'m still rocking my headset. Call me a Lo-bot if you\'d like ;-P~~~~

Sorry- You\\\'re totally correct. I should have called them by their correct name:


And I call my lamp- Henrietta.


ps- You wouldn\'t happen to know the line resolution of HD-DVD vs standard DVD would you?

I thought Uncle Thaddeus sounded like the elderly Katharine Hepburn ... oh and Leann sweety did you forget to take your Effexor today? ;)

Julio from NY
over seventeen years ago

Wow so you didn\\\'t like those wedding songs. Don\\\'t be shy, tell us how you really feel.

Julio from NY
over seventeen years ago

Yeah I have a lot to say today LOL. I had a feeling that you were a fan of Billy Crystal. Some of your jewish accents sounded exactly like him. Did you see his show 100 Sundays? I found it hillarious
