42 Years And Counting

42 Years And Counting

42 is a good number. Can you imagine waking up next to the same person every morning for 42 years? Can you even imagine working for the same company for 42 years? Or picture a startup company even lasting that long? How about living in the same town? Drinking the same brand of beer? Could

Drive Forever, For Free, On Pure Sunlight

Drive Forever, For Free, On Pure Sunlight

This is quite possibly the most important breakthrough I’ve ever heard of with electric vehicles. Imagine how much faster this would be implemented if the US Auto Bailout spent more money on this and less money on dying gas-guzzlers. (Not that I regret the GM bailout, mind you, the fact that they’re already profitable again

And Now A Word From My Mother

And Now A Word From My Mother

So I, like a lot of you, got an email from Tim Westergren– founder and CEO of Pandora Radio. They’re asking ordinary listeners like you, me, and my mother to write our congress critters about the Internet Radio Fairness Act (H.R. 6480 and S. 3609).

Interview about Copyrights on The Illusion of More

Earlier this week I was interviewed by David Newhoff from The Illusion of More about copyrights, file sharing, intellectual property, and the broader ramifications of being a dick.

Everybody Needs A Ninja. No, Seriously.

Everybody Needs A Ninja. No, Seriously.

I think we can clearly determine that Everybody Needs A Ninja is the most popular song I’ve ever written. Every week I’m alerted to new YouTube videos that have used the song (usually without bothering to credit me in any way). Not surprisingly, an overwhelming number of them are video game screencaps. I’ve started collecting

Stop Whining About Fact-Checking

Stop Whining About Fact-Checking

Stop whining that the media doesn’t fact-check politicians. Here’s a news flash: YOU ARE THE MEDIA. Post the truth, cite your sources, be more credible than the Dinosaur Press. You can reach just as many people as they can, they just have better lighting and makeup. You have circles, use them. Debunk. Throw opinion under

Brewing Beer At The White House

Brewing Beer At The White House

All I could think while watching this is “that’s the same gear that WE use when we do this in our kitchen!” I was surprised by a few things: Apparently, Obama’s the first president to have this done at the White House (that we know of). They’re not spending taxpayer dollars to do it, apparently

Re: Your Brains – Live at FAU 2012

Yeah, I didn’t write this one, but dammit if I’m dressing up in a CEDA suit for the show, I HAVE to play the most notorious Zombie song of the last several years.

The Semi-Quasi-Annual Studio Gear Roundup

The Semi-Quasi-Annual Studio Gear Roundup

I was asked during my latest Live from the Coffee Bunker show for a rundown of what I’m using in my studio. I actually get this question several times a year from people who watch the show and are interested in setting up their own webcasts, so I suppose I should cover this topic again.
