2012.05.18  –  Stupid As Charged

Bardus est ut Bardus Does

This week’s “Stupid As Charged” consists of four stories which all share the theme of stupid, dumb, strange, weird, or in some other way are worthy of a dunce cap rating. In particular this episode; being sure to use all applicable discounts with that stolen credit card,  how not to use a motion detecting camera, a coffee bandit,  and, what no more fish?

Friday Night Freak n Geek ventures into a nice sit down chat with someone who keeps you laughing: Phil Johnson from Roadside Attraction. Clever and creative, Phil shares with us his some of the methods to his madness. Plus we get to sample our Beer of the week – well almost as we actually ended up doing last call on the Lumpcast this fine evening. Along with the power of Lacuna Coil and Sick of Sarah – we thought it would be fitting to slip in Mark Kindler’s “Uncle Walt” in tribute to Walt Disney – I hope I didn’t break any copyright laws for just using that name!

Pick Of The Day John Christopher Thomas

John Christopher Thomas

Hello indienation listeners Cleta is bringing you todays pick of the day and since today is April 5th 2012 and it is One day without shoes day. I thought this song Feet Don’t Fail Me Now was very fitting for this day it is from the very talented John Christopher Thomas This was quoted from his bio at reverbnation.com

Born in Omaha Nebraska and raised in San Antonio Texas, John began playing piano at seven. His style developed in his early teens, while studying jazz piano. During the mid-80’s, John began to work with a variety of bands playing rock, funk, blues and fusion music. In 1991, after completing his Bachelor’s degree in art, John moved to South Korea to teach English. He eventually joined a Korean group called Joybox, whose pop single “Special” made it to #23 in the K-Pop charts in 2000. Now adding acoustic guitar to his instruments, John had hundreds of recorded demos to tweak and develop. After completing his MA back in San Antonio, he created the short-live blog “Sweaty Monk.com”, to express the difficulty of those following an individual creative path. Constantly recording in his makeshift home studio, he was able to record tunes that reflected his earlier musical roots of low-fi indie songs with slight touches of folk and world.

I really dig this song I hope you enjoy it as well.

Starting it off with and featuring Christmas Music, Wish Background from Kevin MacLeod. After the nice 20 minute background track, we went to our first story: This week we will discuss Go Daddy, SOPA, Google Googles and more.

 

Boycott Makes Go Daddy Change It’s Stance on SOPA

After many people complained and many transferred domains away from the company, ARS Technica received a statement from Go Daddy. According to the post at ARS, part of it read:

“Fighting online piracy is of the utmost importance, which is why Go Daddy has been working to help craft revisions to this legislation—but we can clearly do better,” Warren Adelman, Go Daddy’s newly appointed CEO, said. “It’s very important that all Internet stakeholders work together on this. Getting it right is worth the wait. Go Daddy will support it when and if the Internet community supports it.”

In a related post, CNET reports that 21,000 domains were transferred from Go Daddy in a single day. The same article also states that the next loss, due to how many still transfered in, was only 1,020 domains.

Back to Christmas Music. To start it off Derek K. Miller:

  • What Child Is This? (Greensleeves)
  • We Three Kings

Then from Calvin Owens (Mevio)

  • Merry Christmas Baby
  • The Christmas Song

Did HP “Mitigate” the Printer Flaw?

Remember late in November when we debated whether the HP laser jet printer flaw was real? According to a post CNET Security, HP has “Mitigated” the flaw. As the article states, mitigate means “to make less severe or painful” As we speculated back in November, the article states a lawsuit was filed against HP claiming that they were aware of the flaw and released the product anyhow. HP is still stating that there are no reports of the printers being exploited in the wild.

Back to Music

Hi Tech Eye Wear from Google

They will be branded “Google Goggles”… CNET has a story about some spectacular spectacles reportedly in the works by Google. They would enhance your view with information about your location and display it in 3D . The article also mentions that Apple is working on a similar product. The story, however, is speculative for they are only rumors and Google won’t comment on rumors.

More links from folks in chat:

from Pierce

More music:

The New Cold War, Patents

Gone are the days of Nike missiles, bomb shelters and mutually assured destruction.. or are they? An article at ARS Technica, claims they involve trolls and lawsuits.

We closed with A Cool Christmas Jingle Bells from Natalie Brown

Merry Chrismas All and remember you can find all many of these artist at Mevio’s Music Alley. You can find a list of all the artist we play at Christmas time on our Chrismas Music Page
