Electric Man and Undervolt!

Hyper Nonsense 0009 artWe’re Starbuckin’ it! Live with hula girls and balloon animals! Not really. We had a conversation about how maybe it’s not so good that we’re married to each other because sickness, disabilities, etc. But it’s likely that normals wouldn’t put up with either one of us for long so maybe it’s all worked out for the best. We’re really killing it in terms of money. We’re doing so well that Jen actually qualifies for Medi-Cal! We’ve got bus-riding refugee kids on the Sweet Pickles Bus. Not really. We recounted the coincidences in which we might’ve met earlier in life (but didn’t). We read some listener comments. Jen’s got another unintentionally funny post from Bubblews. And more!

Pumps Of Base

Hyper Nonsense episode 0008 artWe’ve still got “leftover” stories from our Las Vegas trip, including mean people on airplanes. Flight attendants with special airplane-healing powers and crazy coffee-drink customers. We received an odd solicitation in the mail from the ‘California Compliance Center?” Pretty sure that’s not legit. We’ll be eating well in August thanks to a gift card we got last year but didn’t redeem until now. Tho, it was unclear at first if the gift card was still valid. Jen read a post from the site Bubblews that was hilarious, but it probably wasn’t meant to be. And more!

Make me got the famous:

Livin’ In A Pyramid

Art for Hyper Nonsense 0007Last week, we celebrated our 10-year wedding anniversary by visiting Las Vegas. We stayed at a hotel shaped like a pyramid! Jen had a piece of gluten-free carrot cake! Jen had lots of drinks! We hit it big at the blackjack table! (And by “blackjack table,” we really mean the $0.25 electronic blackjack machine.) Annoying salespeople! Lunch with Diablo! Big lights! Elvis Electric! Awkward selfies! More! And more!

Shiny, shiny details:

  • “Las Vegas” is technically unincorporated?
  • Jen’s cell phone does weird things to our recordings.
  • It’s really important to get to the airport two hours before a flight. Not really.
  • Santa Maria Airport = stuck in the 80′s.
  • The TSA took my face wash. Also, it was stupid of me to bring it.
  • Amtrak = no TSA.
  • Vending machine coffee. Always the best.
  • Boarding thru the aft hatch of a plane is sorta like climbing into a spaceship.
  • The Las Vegas airport is bigger than our local airports.
  • You have to go thru several buildings to catch a taxi at the Las Vegas airport.
  • Some Las Vegas cabs show weird “advertainment” videos on infinite loops.
  • Las Vegas. They just wanna get all your money before you leave.
  • Annoying salespeople inside casinos look like official security staff.
  • They’ll just put a piano guy there while you’re waiting in line because, Vegas.
  • Inclinators. They ain’t elevators.
  • We stayed at Motel 6 the first time we went to Vegas.
  • Las Vegas buffets = insane.
  • Jen always needs naps.
  • The Luxor has wifi but only on the first floor.
  • It’s not good to turn off air conditioners in Las Vegas.
  • Don’t walk across streets in Las Vegas unless you want to die.
  • Jen got her picture taken with Elvis Electric.
  • There are three Starbucks shops inside the Luxor.
  • Alcohol to go? No problem in Vegas!
  • Gluten-free pizza, french fries and wine. Happy Anniversary to us!
  • Slot machines aren’t fun.
  • Jen makes gamblers mad.
  • Walking around the Luxor is like running thru Ironforge.
  • We turned $5.00 into $7.00 by playing electronic Blackjack.
  • Boarding-pass apps for airports actually work.
  • Some people on airplanes are weird.
  • Our airplane broke as we were flying back to California but it wasn’t serious.
  • Jen is running a crowd funding experiment via Beacon. Please support the project if you’d like to learn more about Common Core.
  • Jen is also contributing to Bubblews.

Un-Live

Art for Hyper Nonsense 0006We’re not live but we’re also not dead. We’re un-live and we’re preparing for an exciting trip to Las Vegas! But we decided to make a pod before we leave. Tech problems, we got ‘em (again). Apple’s conspiracy against us continues! We have now soundproofed our closet so we can use it as a vocal booth. We recently celebrated my birthday, which included a nice dinner and airplanes. We responded to some listener comments. Jen wants to see shipping containers and pretty lights in Vegas. I want to go to the mob museum. Nobody wants to see Carrot Top or Criss Angel: Mindfreak.

Pre-Retired

Artwork for Hyper Nonsense 0004Hyper Nonsense! We are the pod that comes to you straight from the heart of California. San Luis Obispo (Sanluiton) to be exact. On this exciting episode, we talk about how The Man is sticking it to us for starting our own business. I had a cool “customer service” experience on behalf of a local musician. We talked about “binge-watching” of TV shows and why we don’t do it. We honored the mystical land of Canadia with a special performance of O, Canadia. We wonder how it’d be possible for Hyper Nonsense to become the first podcast on Mars. Ceiling-breaking cupcake-eating bears, we got ‘em. The most annoying phrases that we’re all overusing? We got those, too.
