I had planned on doing a show about circles, Pi, spheres, domes, ovals and other things roundish, but things became cyclical so I rolled with it.. This is an abbreviated episode due to Tom Scharpling's not showing up for work. We had an emergency Mike Skype Thing chat instead- excerpts coming soon.

He was a bright kid.       Pi is infinite.       Hillary Today offer.      Where were you?         

P.C. Mike learns ten seconds is a long time.     Whiskey and Cigarettes (We're getting famous).

Mike Skype Thing talk: What happened to Stan and Kormodd?        

Listening to The Best Show.          Calling The Best Show.      Not right but didn't fall down.

Emergency Skype Chat?        To be continued...
Listen Now:


This episode was created by filtering though notes from my work table, old Tascam recordings, the newspaper and Glenn Beck propaganda. Oh, and the Jeff Perlman interview conducted by the Skype group as well as a seasonal poem. Florida seasonal anyways.

Charles C. Alexander.       Astrological Billiards.         Ambiguous sentences.        
Notes from the work table.     Gun myths.   Glenn Beck cut up.    

Crazy cat lady.      Trapped in the backyard.

Fredericks Mind Thing- The Show Returns

Hey there gang, I am back!             Mike's Skype Thing is over.  

 After a year's long hiatus you'd assume I have tons of backlogged material.        You'd be right.  

I did, until the crash of 2014.         

So here, I salvage some stuff off my old recorder and acquaint myself with the new GarageBand (I don't really care for it).

As the Best Show returns, Tom stops by and gives us a glimpse behind the scenes. We were just doing our usual Mike Skype thing when Tom Scharpling shows up and talks not texts. Later, he pots us down and ruins the show.

Technology fails me again. All is lost. But, I'll keep going.

Mike's Skype Thing is ending.        Deseated Ram stick.        Ambivalence toward technology.      Death of a podcast.

Perhaps, memory is not supposed to last.        Message erased.

This may be my favorite Mike's Skype Thing episode, thus far. Stan spends the show rapidly cycling between rage and love. P.C. Mike explains old cartoons to Epic Soundtracks. A.P.

Despite my starting out of the tent (fort), this episode recovers and leads us careening through a variety of subjects. Florida makes several appearances and Mike and Spike bring the smut. We, verbally, visit the Middle East, Massa's and the back room of the Best Show. Foreshortened due to a glitch in my new mp3 converter. "I don't care, you win some; you lose some."

Out of the tent (it's a fort!).       Natural law.       James Mellon: Tax avoider.     Florida murder talk.     The Mush.        Florida's governors race.

This was truly a wild one. Kormodd gets kicked around a bit. Dave stages a Cyber-Pirate attack. Mike throws people out of Massa’s and uses movies to comfort the survivors of the guy he killed. Tons of movie talk. P.C. loves Sarah and Dinosaur Jr., while, tiring of Sonic Youth and their shenanigans.  Fredericks’ joke falls flat.
