Technology: our go-to source for insanity

This week we explore the source of a fair share of your insanity and ours: technology! Good thing we’re not, like, addicted to it. ;-)  Wait until you hear this batch of actual workplace tech trouble calls.

Helicopter parent? We found an app to get you hovering higher than any mom or dad in the ‘hood.

Oh, lazy lover boy? We found a website that does the wooing for you. You already dropped a day’s pay on that gimme-any-match-ya-got service. What’s a few bucks more to keep her interested? Guaranteed to work.

Music from New Jersey, indie pop-rocker, Oliver James. Pay close attention to his closing song, “Keep Breathing.” He wrote it to pay homage to men and women in the armed services, and as a plea to return home safely. September is Suicide Prevention Month. According to the VA, 22 veterans take their own lives every day. If you know a Veteran in crisis, please give them this confidential toll free number: 1-800-273-8255. The Veterans Crisis Line is staffed 24/7 by caring, qualified VA responders—many of them, Veterans. Since its inception, calls to the Crisis Line have helped to stop 30,000 suicides in-progress.

Longer days and shorter shows… Mobile fans demanded it and we laughed listened. Cram this show in your iPhone-addicted ear. This week… a village idiot mayor in Italy tells residents it’s illegal to die… We found arguably the most insipid credit card fraud ever… more proof that local TV news should be blown up… and dumb and dumber get […]

Go play in Traffic… More proof (like there wasn’t enough) that the kids playing dress up for your local TV news are into mommy’s and daddy’s stash. We found one bimbo anchor team having waaay too much fun in heels. You s’pose that’s where Steve Winwood got the idea? Other stuff we didn’t make up… Malingering houseguests? Rid them the […]

Bankers Hours… Lemme get this straight. A Castilian queen takes a flyer on a 15th century sailor’s dalliance for a Western trade route and Wall Street traders gets a day off. What’s an Occupier to do? Listen to our ship’s manifest of nonsense. In the Pink… It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and our guest musical artist, […]

Laced with literary references and riding the high-minded music of Stanford’s Glass Wave this week’s show classes up the joint. Need proof of our newly polished pedigree? We found an iPhone app for movie goers with weak bladders. A couple who discovered- as Poe suggested – that walls do not make great neighbors. Insurance to protect you from being sued […]

Dear Elin Woods… You’ve been a good little girl so Santa’s bringing you a divorce. iPhone App developers are cashing in at the Apple store. Like the guy who wrote Santa Message 4U. Inspired by a mom with four little kids, this app didn’t go far enough. Imagine all the helpful little things the jolly fat man […]

Apple didn’t like these Top 10 iPhone third-party apps rejected by Mr. Jobs & Co. Thankfully, consumer outrage forced Apple to reconsider ‘Pull My Finger.’ Nice to see good taste prevail once more. Is this a great country or what? Hello, OnStar? Can you help me? I tried putting my keyless entry fob against my face, like […]
