The iThing

Artwork for HN0020We’re Yosemite’ing it on today’s episode! Sometimes, audio mixers are complicated and the buttons don’t always work like you’d expect (and we spend way too much time breaking down why). We’ve officially changed our format to a tech show. We hope you enjoy all of the Apple talk! We have (not much of) an update on our legal situation. We cover the saga of a defective air purifier we recently purchased. Also, after installing an aerial TV antenna, we’ve got a whopping 17 channels. Now we’re constantly distracted by TV shows. We finished the show with a news item about a haunted house with a real, scary dead guy.

You Will Get Toast

Hyper Nonsense 0019 artworkWe’re asking the hard-hitting questions on this episode. Like: How is salted caramel a “fall thing?” We’ve got a neighbor who’s tearing down a home and replacing it. That process has put a lot of dust and dirt in the air and it’s making us sick. The weirdness with the fraud on our bank account continues and it’s having an affect on the legal situation we’re going thru. I’ve received an update on the status of my unemployment insurance (hint: it’s not good). We’ve finally joined most of the rest of the podosphere by discussing what we’ve watched on TV. In related news: TV antenna manuals suck. We read a news article about an attorney who likes to photoshop herself into images with celebrities. And more!

Secondhand Claims

Hyper Nonsense logo for iTunes.We’re back in the studio! And for some reason, I sound like I’ve been smoking Marlboro Reds all day. It’s not a super high-energy show. I relate the exciting story of my trip to a local RV park by the ocean. We provided an update on the weird fraudulent activity on our bank account. 2014 continues to be an “interesting” year as I got some unexpected (and unwelcome) news about my claim for unemployment benefits. We got a nice shoutout from some fellow podcasters and we read a little bit of listener feedback. Jen gave an update on her disability claim and we finished the show with a scary news item about spiders.

Cough lollies:

  • I’ve been smited by The Pope with my strange smoky voice.
  • Thankfully 20 years ago, we didn’t rename our band Holy Roman Empire.
  • We have the ocean in California. If you don’t have the ocean where you live, it’s your own fault.
  • It doesn’t rain anymore in California.
  • Cough lollies. We call ‘em cough drops in America.
  • I don’t know where mentho-lyptus comes from.
  • Going to the bank gets thing done faster than calling them.
  • Did you hear Jen’s 1920’s keyboard while her microphone was muted?
  • EDD doesn’t like it if you’re working freelance.
  • Don’t go to our support page and send us money right now. Seriously.
  • We got a nice shoutout from the Nerd Out Loud podcast.
  • Spiders oozing from the walls.

Heatwave

Hyper Nonsense Play Button ArtIt’s hot! So hot we had to abandon our usual recording studio for the (almost) comfortable confines of another room that had some leftover A-C in the air. It’s been an interesting (i.e. frustrating) week for us in terms of technology. But the good news is that Jen has room again on her MacBook Air hard drive! Apple dropped an iOS update and broke everything. The weirdness with fraudulent activity on our bank account continues. This time in the form of an unexpected credit. Also, Bluetooth pairing has become the most complicated thing computers do now. We read an iTunes review and then that was pretty much it.

Friend or Noise

hn0016 artworkIt’s time for Hyper Nonsense! The best podcast you’ll hear right now… unless you listen to something (anything) else. We started out the show with ambient furniture noises, which lead into a story of the last couple of chairs I bought from Staples. Jen explains how it feels to never leave the house. We talk about the new social net that’s all the rage with the kids. I relate a story about how my sister’s car was broken into and what happened to her stolen iPod. I’ve been cooking more at home and researching recipes. I discovered that food bloggers can be kinda self-important.We read some listener feedback and we take a look at what American products are called in other countries. And more!

We have an update on Jen’s claim for disability benefits.  We’re going thru some legal things right now that we’re not talking about. Hear about Jen’s most recent adventures in Sleepy Boos Land.

iWon’t Pay

hn0014 artworkJust in time for this week to not be over, it’s our latest podisode! We recount our (mostly uneventful) memories of  the September 11th attacks, including the fact that we moved in together that week. We give our thoughts on the big Apple shindig (and its seriously buggy live stream) that went down earlier this week. (iPhone 6? Apple Watch? Meh…) Hear about our exciting adventure in troubleshooting a leaky faucet! And then… scanning and shredding 21 months worth of documents! We also went over some listener feedback and talk about how a disappointed billionaire won’t be able to carve California into six individual states. And more!

A 10,000-word treatise:

Pod Dodo

Hyper Nonsense Play Button ArtWe’re back with our latest pod! It’s a rare and special show where Jen actually describes herself as “OK!” We tackle some heavy topics such as dreams and how to define “success.” Is coding/programming the only sure bet left in life in terms of paying work? Does money = love? Or is being acknowledged by strangers the only true expression of real love? Is it better to focus on short-term gains and move on? Or is it better to go for the long haul? We discussed the phenomenon of “Internet pile-ons,” specifically the Ice Bucket Challenge and the death of Robin Williams. I recount the story of a crazy guy who asked me about the Battle of Armageddon. We went over some listener feedback and more!

Getting Tingly With Matt Sams

Hyper Nonsense 0012 artworkWe’ve got an exciting episode for you! Not only are we Starbuckin’ it, but we have our first-ever guest for this iteration of our ongoing pod project. It’s Matt Sams, also known as Somnistatic. Matt has undertaken an ambitious song-a-day project for the year 2014. He’s recording a new song every day and releasing it online. As of this recording, Matt is on song number 239. He’s just about 75% of the way there and he hasn’t missed one day! During the interview, we discuss Matt’s songwriting inspiration/process. We talk about marketing and “making it” as a creative person in the Internet age. We meander thru a couple fun digressions and we play a couple of Matt’s songs.

Harassment Eagle

Artwork for HN0011Meh. It’s a low-energy kinda day. But we gotta make some pods. You’re welcome and we’re sorry. We’ve got an update on the errant tuna can that magically rolled behind our stove. We recount the story of when we rescued and released a wild bat. We played a sound clip from a recent episode that proves we’re time travelers. Or that the concept of decades really confuses us. Hear the exciting story of our new blender! Our listeners attempted to rescue us from the desert island we’ve been trapped on by sending in some hilarious feedback. We cover a story about a local woman who tried to get friendly with a giraffe and more!

It ain’t gonna work today:
