Show Notes - 10/31/2010

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

On tonight's program, we spoke with Pop Culture Guru, Rob Weiner. Officially, Rob is the Associate Humanities and Performing Arts Librarian at Texas Tech University. That sounds like a way cool job anyway..and it is! So on Halloween, we spent the evening (or most of it) talking about pop culture as it relates to horror, terror and beyond.

Plenty of information for the horror fan came bustling out and we learned quite a bit while talking to Rob. One thing that was noted that there is much more horror crossed with superheroes than you might think. Some titles of some graphic novels include: Batman vs Nosferatu, The Monk, Batman vs Dracula. Here is another example; the following video is one of the very best fan-made short films that puts Batman in a very terrifying predicament:


Some films that were mentioned as well: To the Devil a Daughter, Bloodfeast, Dead Girl, Cannibal Holocaust. Also, Rob says that his Halloween Pick is Black Sabbath. So there you have it; a great Halloween show with a fantastic guest. If you missed it, please download the archived podcast and check it out..it might help you build a new list of must see movies.

On the program tonight we covered a follow up story to the Obion County, Tennessee firefighter mess whereas the City of South Fulton has decided that they will extend their "Subscription-Only" Fire Service to even more residents. How can they do that?! Is there no justice for the people? Stop by the Facebook Fan Page of the show and weigh in on this situation on the Discussion Forum: http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=69345869256&topic=15395

Other news notes were the Charlie Sheen hotel binge, some political talk and just plain old fun along the way. Be sure and add this little diddy to your iPod and as always, comments on the stories are always welcomed via the email.

Show Notes - 10/24/2010

Dr. David Oester from the International Ghost Hunters Society stopped by to spend some time talking about ghosts and the paranormal. We covered a lot of ground but there is so much more that beckons discussion.

We clarified some things like orbs in pictures, vortexes and EVP. EVP is more commonly known as Electronic Voice Phenomena and it is the name for when you record the voice of ghosts.

We also talked about paralell dimensions and a caller asked us about seeing an image of herself which we explained is a doppleganger. A doppleganger is described as a spirit of oneself or a tangible double of a living person. Scary stuff. Be sure and check out Dr. Dave's website below and sign up for the very informative newsletter so you, too can learn some techniques for investigating ghosts in your home or other places. They recommend that you do the craft during the day when it is safe.

TERROR FILM FESTIVAL
October 21-23, 2010
Ethical Society Building

1906 South Rittenhouse Square
Philadelphia, PA 19103

On tonight's broadcast, we discussed the security breach in Facebook's third party applications. Such famous apps like Farkle, Farmville and more have been passing private information to other websites that collect data. This means even the users who have very tight security controls. This might make you think twice before wasting your minutes away on the play apps on Facebook.

Later we welcomed back to the program the one and only Diva Fashionista of the Terror Film Festival, PRINCESS HORROR. The Terror Film Festival is in it's 5th year and is very successful showcasing independent films from the horror, thriller, sci-fi and other similar genres. The lovely princess promises that only the best will be shown at the festival including some great short films. Also, the Princess has announced that her and Claw have put together a music CD just in time for Halloween. The tickets, the CD and all the festival information can be found at the website below. Be sure and get your tickets and go see the films.

Show Notes - 10/17/2010

A new segment entitled "SOMETHING SPONTANEOUS debuted on the show and it is a segment where just about anything can happen. On this installment, Joel & Don acted out the "Who's On First" skit made famous by Abbott & Costello. Considering that we are not actors, it turned out very well.

Next up, Singer/Songwriter Doug Rausch stopped by to talk about some music history. The one thing that resonates from talking with Doug is the fact that he has a rich music upbringing and he has a strong hold on the history behind music. Doug started honing his craft at the age of 8 and from then it has been a journey in search of great music. To our ears, the journey is going very well. We featured the track, "It Happens" which has influential foundations from the likes of Queen, Pink Floyd and more.

Kay Stout joined us for another installment of our monthly feature, Ideas For A Challenging Economy. Every third Sunday of the month, Kay comes onto the panel to discuss careers and job trends including different changes in the economy. The one major discussion for tonight was the fact that people looking for work and have a desire to help people may consider work at a foundation. Check out the show podcast to learn more and contact Kay below to discuss with her in more detail.

Show Notes - 10/12/2010

Tonight on the program we discussed the Social Security Administration's findings that 72,000 stimulus checks of $250 each were sent to deceased people. Just another reason why the government needs to be checked and balanced as to what they are doing with tax dollars. We are going broke! The worst part of the story is that not all the money has been recouped which means that there are some very happy people in heaven with money in their pocket.

Next up, we discussed a story from FactCheck.org that debunks a video and story that has been circulating for some time regarding President Barack Obama's speech about raising a private "Nazi-Style" Army. Well, it appears that it had a little tailoring and doctoring and what he was truly discussing was expanding the health corps of America for times of emergency.

OPEN CANDIDATES FORUM

Tonight on the broadcast we introduced and welcomed our new intern, Cash Young. Cash is a student of the music production field and will assume the duties of Research Assistant as well as helping out with social media duties.

Before the main part of the show, we discussed a news story regarding the South Fulton, TN Fire Department refusing to respond to a rural Obion County home owned by Gene Cranick which caught fire. The refusal was because he forgot to pay his $75 Fire Services Fee for the year. His neighbor called for fear that the fire may spread to his property. He did pay his fee so they responded...and sat there watching Mr. Cranick's home burned completely to the ground! We have NO idea what moral standard any firefighter uses to stand by and watch a fellow man's home burn to nothing. How dare they call themselves firefighters. In the opinions of this host, they are not even equal with humans and we have opened a challenge for any one of them to come onto the show and explain this to us.

The main segment of the show was an Open Candidates Forum. We sent out many invitations to Delaware politicians to join our forum and speak about the issues, their campaigns and aspirations for office. The panel consisted of:

  • Senator Colin Bonini (running for Delaware Treasurer)
  • Brent Wangen (running for US Congress)
  • Jim Rash (running for US Senate)
  • Will McVay (running for DE Representative 32nd District)

Each candidate had 5 minutes to speak freely and uninterrupted regarding their stand and then we had a round table session on some of the issues as well as some questions that were emailed to the studio. All of the candidates have some very good points and stand on very good values. Please do yourself a favor and download the podcast and listen to their speeches and our discussion and visit their websites below to learn more about them. We encourage you to call them or speak with them at rallies and find out what great values they have. This is our way of helping concerned voters make educated decisions on election day.

The candidates also wanted to pass along a special mention to the League of Women Voters who have initiated some rallies where ALL candidates on the ballot are allowed to appear and speak. There are two events to mention:

League of Woman Voters Federal Candidates
October 20th at 6:45 PM
Sheraton Hotel in Dover Delaware

October 26th at 7:00 PM
Crossroads Community Church in Georgetown Delaware

Tonight on the program, we discussed the NLDS which kicks off on October 6, 2010. We compared some of the line-ups and made some amateur predictions. We also talked about the two Philadelphia Police Officers who were arrested and charged with robbery. They were videotaped stealing 20 pounds of marijuana and $3000 in cash from undercover officers posing as drug dealers. The City of Brotherly Love is turning into a Live version of every "bad cop" movie ever made.

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Tonight on the broadcast we spoke about several stories from the news but we started out with some conversation about the officiating lately in the NFL. It seems to be very common knowledge among analysts and fans alike that the officials have officially lost their whistles and are not calling the games correctly. In some cases they are also mis-handling the play clocks. So we say..."Quit playing with your clocks and pay attention to the game!"

Below is the list of news stories discussed and their respective links. Feel free to email your comments regarding these stories to the show or let us know your thoughts on the Facebook Fan Page.
