Romney 47 Percent This Week on Stimulated Boredom

The iPhone 5 is released with a new shade of lipstick and Mitt Romney thinks 47% of the country (which includes Grandma and active military personnel) are a bunch of freeloading bums and doesn’t want their vote.

This week saw the release of the iPhone 5 – as I share my opinion of Apple’s newest innovation – which offers BRAND NEW FEATURES…that every smartphone released in the last 2 years already had. I spend a few minutes trying to wrap my head around why people would choose a closed OS that tethers and makes them dependent upon one company’s digital ecosystem.

For the remainder of the program, I wax poetic on the horrific week that Mitt Romney enjoyed and share my opinion and insight on what the electoral landscape looks like heading into November. Can Romney rebound? Are there enough undecided voters left to close the gap in battleground states where the President leads? I also share the exact moment during election night that you should look for, in which I guarantee that you can turn to others in the room and confidently declare, “It’s over.”

ermahgerd dragons Khaleesi game of thrones This Week on Stimulated Boredom

Week of: September 10 – September 17, 2012

This week I’m joined by resident geek girl, Vanessa G of, as she discusses Dragon*Con and her first foray into the world of cosplay.

Ever wonder what possesses a person to dress up as their favorite movie, video game or comic book character? Ever wonder what it’s like to attend a comic book convention dressed as your favorite movie, video game or comic book character? Frequent SB guest and listener favorite, Vanessa Gabriel, did just that at this year’s Dragon*Con and was kind enough to share her first cosplay experience and what it was like to put her costume together, walk the floor and pose for pictures.

I’ve attended a couple of conventions myself and I greatly admire the time, effort and passion that people put into their costumes. Not only did Vanessa dress up, but she shares what it was like as a first-time cosplayer to be stopped by fans to take photos, the importance of practicing your hero poses in front of the mirror and why you should never wear anything made of polyurethane.

In this 2.5 hour discussion, we had a great time as Vanessa shared a ton of entertaining stories…including an embarrassing fangirl meltdown moment while meeting one of her favorite actors! As they say, “You never forget your first time.” :)

Enjoy the show!

Week of: September 3 – September 10, 2012

This week I’m joined by listener favorite, Patrick…as we tackle everything from the Apple Vs. Samsung verdict, my time at Star Wars Celebration VI and the Republican National Convention.

There’s a little something for everyone this week:

  • Tech: What the verdict in the Apple v. Samsung lawsuit means to the future of the (non-iOS) smartphone market
  • Geek: Discussion of my experience at Star Wars Celebration VI and why fans make such a big deal out of the franchise
  • Politics: What could cause two people – who follow politics very closely and who have watched every political convention in the last few election cycles – to find themselves unable to stomach this year’s Republican convention?

As is the case with every appearance that Patrick has on the program, this week’s show is really nothing more than giving fans of the podcast an opportunity to listen in on the conversation and thoughts of two close friends. I shit you not, these are exactly the kinds of conversations that we have on the phone all the time. :)

Enjoy the show!
