Hullo, Daylight Savers!
Last week I posted and it was Halloween(ish), now it’s Daylight Savings… From now on, I’m only posting on holidays / special occasions with proper nouns.
Monday, we recorded Episode 14 and I lead the discussion. In retrospect I feel like my topics were weak compared with Matt’s and other random news articles we’ve bickered about, but I won’t know unless someone points it out. Check it out and prove me right or wrong: Episode 14.
Justin scoffed at Paranormal Activity and I was let down by In Time.
Then I brought up Kim Kardashian’s divorce and how it’s being used for a good cause by pro gay marriage / GLBTQ organizations / George Takei based on an article at The Wrap. Matt brought up some pretty sleazy statistics on the short-lived marriage.
We tried to ruminate on an article about Gen Xers not being slackers, but it turns out, we’re not sure what defines generations…
And I found an article where really smart scientists put their formidable minds to improving boarding times…
Tomorrow, we record a new podcast!
As ever, let us know how we’re doing. Or send us a crazy news article, a funny video, some movie/show we “must see” or whatever. Feedback is good, unless it’s coming from microphones.
P.S. Why do these links always turn up in stupid colors?
Happy Sunday and Happy Halloween / Dia de los Muertos / All Hallow’s!
Even though we recorded this newest podcast on Monday and Matt promptly sent us the link, someone (Justin! Not me!) slacked and forgot to put it up. So, I am sailing in to save the day and steal all of the credit. Never mind that Justin texted me at 9:30 this morning my time to ask me to do it… No, no, it’s not like normal people sleep in on Sunday mornings or anything…
Episode 13 – Attempting Banter: Reprise
Anyway, this week we tried again the new format introduced by Matt, in which we actually BANTER. Or… try to. We tried our best to be quicker overall, but you’ll have to give Justin and me time to learn to be concise. Or at least conscious of the passage of time. Maybe we really do need Matt to get a buzzer noise?
The things we bantered about:
The things we just talked about:
Have Justin, Matt and I succeeded in idly bantering? Has our length of podcast vs excitement of podcast ratio improved since Matt piloted the new format? Did I forget to mention something? Did you want to mention something? As ever, let us know!
As you can see this weeks episode is coming out very late. This is largely due to Matt and I not getting our stuff together this week. We record these Monday night and then try to get them up in the next couple of days. Matt was a bit late getting the finished podcast to me and as you can see I am just as late posting it. Oops..
Anyway, the gang tried something new this week and broke away from our original format. We are trying to bring a little more banter into “Idle Banter” and this new format might just work. The new format is also supposed to help cut down on the length of the podcast because we know they can get a little long. Not sure this week was any different, Zoe and I just need to learn to talk less… HA like that will happen. Matt keeps threatening to buzz us out if we are going too long. I say let him try.
Enjoy this week’s show. Zoe and I talk about the movie “The Girl With a Dragon Tattoo” that was released in 2009. I also believe the Pope being a Nazi gets mentioned as well. As always comments are welcome and if you have questions you would like us to discuss or answer feel free to leave us a message. We look forward to hearing from you.
Episode 12 – Trying Something New
On this week’s episode the gang plays catch up after taking a well deserved week off. We discuss some fall television programing, some interesting movies and the passing of an innovator. Enjoy this week’s episode and join us next week, when Matt plans to reveal a cunning plan to Zoe and I.
It is September and we all know what that means… NEW FALL TV! On this week’s episode Matt, Zoe and I take a look at some of the season and series premier that have happened and put in our two cents. Not that it is worth much. We would love to hear from you and your take on the Fall’s new and old shows. Drop us a line and we will discuss it on next weeks show when we tackle the last few shows of September (like Terra Nova). As always have a great week and enjoy the show.
The Fall Line Up
One of these days, I’ll get this post up before the end of the week. Then again at least it gives everyone the opportunity to listen to this wonderful masterpeice over the weekend. This week, we discuss Netflix’s move to split into two websites and make fun of the name Qwikster. Matt talks about celebrities getting their phones and I tell you that Google translate can apparently beatbox. Enjoy the episode and as always, feel free to send questions or comments or thing you would like heard discussed on the show. Until next time.
On this week’s episode we look back on the tragedy that happened ten years ago. We also talk about the upcoming fall TV season. Zoe talks about TV as High Art, Matt relates something back to Apple (go figure) and I tell you were to find a good hide out for the zombie apocalypse.
I apologize for the lack of written blogs on the site. Hopefully those will return once we have a little more time on our hands and a new site to share them on. Until then, hope you all enjoy the podcasts and we will see you next week.
