TG #10: Comic Con and Holy Crap, 10 Episodes!

August 3, 2008 – 10:24 pm

We’re here again… You can hardly keep us away! We talk about Comic-Con, the Pope’s hat, and recap some of the madness and hilarity from our first 10 episodes.


Comic Con 2008 – Chewbacca is big.

Pat saw a Stargate Atlantis panel, met some folks including Peter Mayhew and Penny Arcade, and saw lots of grown adults in costumes.

Stargate Continuum is out, and we’re going to watch it before the next podcast.

We’re getting a lot of wrong numbers to our GrandCentral line, which is kind of weird.

iPod Touch Volume Problems – 2.0 software reduces the volume significantly.

This is show #10 – amazing! Here’s a recap of our previous shows:

Windows Vista

  • We still like, but don’t love, it.

iPod Touch

  • The cloud of 2.0 hurt our fanboi-ism, but we still both use them constantly.

Social Networks: LinkedIn, Myspace, Facebook, and Twitter

  • Myspace: We’ve moved on.
  • LinkedIn: Both active
  • Facebook: Both active
  • Twitter: The new darling (when it’s up)

Kitchen Aid

  • Craig has a new shiny

Listeners

  • Do we still have any? You’ve all stopped commenting 🙁

Gravatars

  • Adoption slowly rising, and we still think they rule

Microhoo (cahnoogle?)

  • Who cares?

The Process movie – it’s not a comedy, it’s a documentary!

Edit August 6: This video is no longer available. Too bad; it was funny.

  3. Hello gents,

    Congratulations on getting to double digits with your podcast! I really enjoyed episode 10, and look forward to more.

    At one point during the podcast, Craig suggested that you watch the new Stargate movie and comment about it, and then wondered if your audience would get into something like that. My suggestion would be yes, especially since you’re catering to a particularly nerdy segment of the population. Take me for example. I don’t even watch Stargate and I’d listen to you discuss it. That’s one of the beautiful things about being a geek, nerd, whatever you want to call it: it’s universal, and even if we don’t watch, listen to, or do exactly what you do, we can appreciate it.

    Regardless, keep up the great work and I look forward to episode 11 and beyond!

  6. There now I’ve commented so quite crying about it!

    I sent your comments about the Pope’s hat on to the Vatican, so you should be hearing from the Knights Templar soon…..BTW did you hear that the KT are suing the Vatican?

  7. Hooray! We got comments!

    We love you guys.

  9. Finally got caught up on T&G. I like the fanfare at the beginning! No gravatar for me (yet), but I’ll make up for it by calling Grand Central here sometime… Here’s to the next ten episodes!

  10. I came to the site to post comments but I see others have taken pity on y’all as well.

    I agree with the plan for the puppy and the unicorn.
