  1. @ Will

    Stravinsky was the composer of the work ‘Rite of Spring’ (the part with the Dinosaurs). The Conductor of the orchestra playing the music during the film was Leopold Stokowski.

  2. I just had a thought…

    Will – Can you sub-shoot a podcast from google glass so we can see a podcast from your POV. It might be really interesting. We already watch the “Three” of you guys from an audiences POV, but a FPS POV might be really interesting. A duel video podcast in the future?

  3. I miss Gary…. 🙁

    Yeah, did I miss something or why is he no longer a (relatively) permanent guest?

  4. I miss Gary…. 🙁

    Yeah, did I miss something or why is he no longer a (relatively) permanent guest?

    I am circulating all kinds of nasty rumors about him in Hollywood so that we get him back, I’ll keep you guys posted on Operation “Shoot That Guy”

  5. Will,

    The movie with Brent Spiner on the cruise ship is Out to Sea. His performance of Sway (a Dean Martin staple) was entertaining.

  6. Number 38 in a series where KingMonkey points out the differences between British English and American English:

    Fortnight = fourteen nights. Two weeks. It is in everyday use on this side of the pond, I was actually quite surprised when I found out it wasn’t in North America.

  7. Wow, that surprises me too. Fortnight is also commonplace here in Australia, I just assumed it was an across the board word for English-speaking folk.

  8. Ezecutable? You did it again Will. Ryan Davis is probably shaking his fist at you from up there but also having a good laugh.

  9. Regarding Monopoly house rules. I can explicitly say they didn’t come about recently. I had friends in 1980 claiming various house rules were part of the game. Like money going in a “kitty” for when you hit Free Parking, and of course not doing auctions. My guess is that many people (especially kids that teach themselves) don’t read all the rules. Or just object to things. I had a coworker whose family banned adjacent Scrabble words. He acted like they were some affront to decency, and not a core element of the game.

  10. Good show, far better than last week’s. Good to hear from Williams again.

    Don’t get Smith’s fascination with Kickstarter. Not only have I never funded anything, I’ve never even been to their site. But the tech community is obsessed with it and I have no clue why. Frankly, it’s a bunch of useless projects that are obediently lapped up by the small subset of techies who buy everything.

  11. I went to that archery range in Pacifica for about 2 years straight, every weekend. It’s nice, except when it rains.
