Episode 150: Picture in Picture

As Todd and I continue to find our feet on the Google Hangout aspect of the Todcast, we’re trying to keep viewers interested by throwing up photos of our escapades. In the coming week’s we hope to invite you to join us live. Meanwhile, we’ll be posting our show photos each week over at the GCFL Google+ site for people …

Out with the old

When the last Blockbuster in town closed four or so years ago, I thought what everyone not employed by Blockbuster at the time thought: “Good.” It always had been an ordeal renting from Blockbuster and, between Netflix and the public library, Blockbuster never had anything I needed. Especially after having taught me the hard way how much cheaper it was …

Episode 149: Breaking my mind

Before we get started, it is very important you know that “Signs” by Five Man Electrical Band is one of the worst of the Hippie-Pop songs ever recorded. This is not my opinion, this is objective fact. What makes it one of the awfullest, most soul crushing songs ever to mar the airwaves is for another day. But for now …

Episode 148: A load of tripe

What is that horrifying photo, you ask? That is yours truly participating in this new, deproved Todcast, broadcasting live on Google Hangouts. Because Todd and I have malleable jobs and responsibilities, a few months ago we elected to start doing the Happy Hour Todcast at 10 a.m. from home, rather than 5 p.m. from wherever we could get someone to …

Life on Hoth

I could claim the snow is breaking me, but in reality I just like wearing this hat. I always have, even when I was a little kid and way to small for it.  My dad brought this home from the National Guard, along with some other fun stuff including the gas mask (not the kind with the can hanging on), a …

Episode 146: Life imitates parody

In this week’s Todcast, we talk muskrat, country music, and because it’s the law, the Oscars. The good folks at Good Clean Fun Life, are preparing to celebrate their fifth year as a lifestyle website. Officially, they started on St. Patrick’s Day but, just as Natalee celebrates her birthday for the better part of the month, so too does GCFL. …

Episode 145: Fancier Pantsier

In this week’s Todcast Todd reports on his regional travels including the Frozen Harbor Music Festival (formerly Pirate Rob’s Birthday Party) and joining the Blue Agave Bottle Club. Of the first, there’s not much that can be said that hasn’t already, so more on the second: When Todd said he’d joined a bottle club, it confused me just a little …

Episode 142: Meet the New Boss

An appeal to the lowest common denominator is something meant derisively, as if they’re better than the people to whom the appeal is made. But, in this complaint, there is something of a confession. Either we don’t understand math (specifically, how to arrive at the lowest common denominator) or we don’t realize our part in the equation. During our Buzz …

Episode 141: The Blue Pill

We got the chance to wax a little philosophical on this week’s Todcast. It stemmed from a discussion of the unreality we can sometimes attribute to other people’s lives, this sense about the difference between what’s real and what’s not. To be clear, I don’t think the rabbit hole goes any farther down than it appears to, or than one …

Episode 140: The man in the barrel

In this week’s show we get the opportunity to interview Donnie Landis (pictured right) who’s coming to town this week to perform in the Lone Star Rodeo as part of the Bulls, Broncs, and Barrels tour at the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center. He called in from on the road someplace between here and Idaho, to talk about his craft. The …
