Interview with John Flansburgh of They Might Be Giants

How do you start an interview with a personal idol? By telling them they’re wrong!

Thrill as Keith and I correct John Flansburgh on where They Might Be Giants has toured. And on how Bozeman, MT smells!

Other topics covered include Tetris, dreams, They Might Be Giants on Rock Band, old technology, new technology, They Might Be Giants’ place in music history, John’s politics, The Firesign Theatre, what happens on The Bus, and sticking to the music. ‘Tis a grand and sweeping conversation!

Coffee Christmas 2012

Oh boy, fun times!

The Christmas show is always my favorite Coffee Show, and I’m proud to present to you the full three hours from 2012! This show features music in the holiday spirit, if by “spirit” you mean not at all what you normally hear. It’s also recorded directly from the radio feed so it still includes the underwriter breaks and the jovial ramblings of Keith and myself.

Presented in three parts, the recording is split on the hour of real time broadcast so at the beginning and end of each track there are disjointed bits, just like on-air radio!

Enjoy!

Movies Under The Microscope – Bolt

Go see Bolt!

That’s basically the gist of my and Keith’s critical analysis of the movie, so consider yourself spoiled.

I was going through my audio library and found the reviews we did for a local radio station, KGLT, a few years back. This is one of the few where Keith and I both agree. We also both think that Bolt was amazing in the theater.

Of special note, Keith admits to liking 3D! Well at least he does when it’s done well and with subtlety.

Lenovo Yoga, Now Fun-Size

Lenovo has just released the following video about the new incarnation of the Yoga series:

This is so newly released it’s not even on their product page they link to in the video description. Expect it to show up soon though.

Unlike the previous 11″ model of Yoga, this one comes with full Windows 8 and a i7 cpu.

If you’re someone who loves the idea of the Yoga but it’s just a bit big for you, here’s the answer. It’s about the size of a netbook or ipad. I’d be highly tempted to get this if I didn’t already have the 13″ version.

Now if only Lenovo would add digitizer pen functionality to the Yoga line!
