Week of: Sept 26 – Oct 3, 2011
Part of the fun each week is figuring out why a segment earned its title. ;)
In this week’s show, I ended up falling into an overall stream of consciousness that covered everything from the President’s address to Congress and details relating to the American Jobs Act, to the struggling economy and how our politics is only making it worse.
To kick the show off, I continue to (shamelessly) indulge my love of my Alma Mater, Florida State, and do a quick re-cap of their highly anticipated rematch against #1 Oklahoma. I was there – losing my voice in the process – and briefly recount the experience…now that I am finally off of Suicide Watch.
Since I took last week off to attend the game, I continue the discussion with an update to some of the events that occurred in my absence. As is usually the case, the remainder of the program succumbs to my tangential stream of thought: The President’s address to a Joint Session of Congress, the American Jobs Act and what it entails, the politics of a struggling economy, a personal story relating to my own bout with the negative effects of the economy, the Republican debates and a lot more.
I enjoyed being back on the mic after some time off and feel that this week’s show really encompasses a lot of opinions and thoughts that many Americans are experiencing leading up to the precipice of a highly charged election season.
As always, enjoy the show!

This week, I am joined by listener-favorite Vanessa G of Girls-Gone-Geek.com, as we take a welcome departure from the usual show topics to discuss all things Dragon*Con and take an entertaining, informative & insightful romp through geek culture, comic books, cosplay and her experience at the Atlanta conference.
This week’s show is specifically geared towards geeks, as Vanessa recounts the goings-on at a comics conference, including: Half-naked superhero body paint, the continued allure of Carrie Fisher, (alleged) nerd orgies, the panel she attended with Felicia Day, her ‘True Blood’ obsession gone wrong and being called a ‘hooker’ by a favorite actor from the series.
If you ever wanted an inside view of the comics world and the conferences that fans attend, this is the perfect segment for you!
Lastly, we round out the discussion with some politics (this is still Stimulated Boredom) and a remembrance of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, as both Vanessa and I recount the stories of where we were when we heard the news of the attacks and the subsequent shift in this country for the last decade.
I hope that you enjoy this lively discussion as much as we enjoyed recording it…and, as always, enjoy the show!
Added Show Note: The musical artist featured at the end of the show is a talented local Orlando band by the name of “A Brilliant Lie“, who will be guests on the program in the very near future. The name of the song is, “Live While Sleeping” and I encourage you to check out their site and give their jams a listen. :)
