207: UnInventions

The Paul And Spike Show: March 3rd, 2010.


0:00:00 - Paul is still sounding like he's talking into a yogurt pot on a 1940s radio broadcast, recorded on a wax cylinder that has been stored in a jar of warm purple jam. That's been kept in direct sunlight. We got complaints last week, can you tell? Thank Skype for that, it loves to drop the quality of a call when it thinks bandwidth needs to be preserved. The show operates off of $20 bandwidth, what could possibly go wrong? Plus, The Boys update you on next week's live show.

0:08:00 - Ah, that's better. Paul's quality improves, and they catch up on some remaining correspondence from last week.

0:10:38 - Keeping the show relevant by doing what everyone else does, The Boys spend some time, reluctantly, talking about Tiger Woods. Again. Ya-a-a-a-w-w-w-w-w-n-n-n-n! Olympic curling gets a look-in, though. And that's always good.

0:21:15 - Housekeepin' and Grinnin'! The week in current affairs, wrapped in terrible jokes. ...wait a minute! Housekeeping?

0:24:00 - This Week In Stuff! Paul's consumption of the Ebert List continues with "Gone With The Wind". Oh fiddle-de-dee, Eshley! He found Pixar's "Up" delightful, and finds guilty pleasure in a book by Lee Child. Spike recommends D'Arcy Sarto's "Lady Don't Fall Backwards"; the book with which someone lit a fag using the last page.

0:48:40 - Spike's keeping it old skoo using the new skoo, and playing "Mario And Sonic At The Winter Olympics" on the Wii, and watching multiple DVDs of the 1974 British general election. Party at Spike's house!!

1:06:45 - This week's question, courtesy of Spike's mum, is 'What would you un-invent?"
