Daniel here,

I'm going to be attending the live simulcast of RiffTrax LIVE: Plan 9 from Outer Space.

Looks like it will be a lot of fun. Fans of cheesy sci fi films and the old MST3K group should not miss it.

This week we answer (in the loosest possible definition of the word) one of listeners topic requests.

Anonymouslives @ReturnOfWhateve Posted: I'd like to see you guys talk about Macbook pro's vs Macbooks, vs other laptops, for artistic, and educational purposes.

I'm not sure that any of the information we provide is useful but we certainly talked about it.

A few of our other topics:

Brew your own booze or why we love Make.

(NOTE) Facebook has since revoked their new terms of service. Behold the power of ROW.

Another great podcast. This week we are back with a new tagline that we think perfectly describes us.

"Sometimes funny. Sometimes interesting. Always weird!"

Thanks to Comixgal for coming up with it for us.
