Shake After Primary For New Principles, Stances & Opinions

Week of: March 26 – April 2, 2012

As if the title wasn’t self-explanatory enough. ;)

This week I dive into the hotly debated and controversial circumstances surrounding the Trayvon Martin shooting; including a timeline of the events and my opinion of the case. Should George Zimmerman be arrested…or is he protected under Florida’s, “Stand Your Ground” law? Was the shooting racially motivated? Were the Sanford police department woefully inept and negligent in their handling of the case?

(Show Note: I inadvertently kept referring to Trayvon Martin as Trayvon Walker.)

To round out the program, I address the latest gaffe from the Romney campaign…one that will likely define the candidate heading into the general election, much as “flip-flopper” plagued the candidacy of John Kerry. Will the comparison to an Etch-A-Sketch – made by Romney senior campaign adviser, Eric Fehrnstrom – further compound and symbolize the concerns about Mitt Romney, a man already heavily criticized for having fluid “principles” when it suits his political needs?

As always, enjoy the show!

SxSW Notes This Week on Stimulated Boredom

Sample of Patrick's Notes Taken At SxSW

Week of: Mar 19 – Mar 26, 2012

Since I was unable to record a new show the last 2 weeks, I decided to make it up to all of you with this 3-hour / ‘Super Sized’ edition of Stimulated Boredom (who loves ‘ya?).

This week I am joined by Patrick, who recently returned from SxSW, as he shares many of the panels he attended, the innovations introduced at the conference and the newest trends in film, social media, music and interactive design & gaming. Since I was unfortunately unable to attend, I was forced to live vicariously thorough hisexperience…while secretly resenting him for it. ;)

Lastly, we round out the program with some political discussion of many of the events that have occurred over the last couple of weeks. We tackle the Limbaugh/Fluke controversy, the prolonged Republican primary and what effect it may have on the eventual nominee, along with other predictions and opinions.

Also, please take a moment to support one of Patrick’s projects, Shoe Box Holidays, which allows you to create and share your own unique shoe box greeting :)

As always, enjoy the show!
