The triple decker sandwich cookie of geek podcasting has returned with something old, something new and something TARDIS Blue in what, for us, is a shorter than the usual full length episode running time. No, we aren’t kidding. Download them all and check us on that just to be sure. No, really. Like pokemon, you gotta collect them all. Don’t forget to let us know what you think of the new homework, the new segment that debuts this show and what oddities we may have missed along the way!
Drop The Beat!
Here’s the deal, the crew will focus on various aspects of music in this new segment. Remember, there is no accounting for taste. Yet we will all try and bedazzle with suggestions on each of the episode topics. First up, albums that stand the test of time and inspire us to no end.
For the Rockstar, Dio “Last In Line”
She also can’t help to mention that you need to hear Dream Theater’s “Images & Words”

Oh, erp, thanks to Tim Hornik for this comment in regards to an earlier show
With all of your talk about bacon, I have no clue how you can skip over one very important food group:
GelatinousMeat, aka SPiced hAM.
This product provides the most convenient way to enjoy a five star meal following the Zombie apocalypse, or after training for the invasion after using such Apps like Zombie Run and Where’s my Ducky. In the event the Zombies fail to show up, you will at least have a stockpile of perfectly good meat for months to come.
Besides, what other pre-cooked meat product comes in flavors such as:
– Low Sodium
– Hot and Spicy
This is the perfect food, having been featured in such music videos like: http://www.metacafe.com/watch/2966075/weird_al_yankovics_spam_music_video/
And many more you can enjoy by visiting the SPAM Mecca in Austin, MN. Hmmmm, MN really sounds closely like mmmmmm, the same sound one emits after enjoying SPAM. Can you just imagine mowing down on Twinkies and SPAM sandwich, or SPAM with DQ soft were.”
Um, no. No we can’t.
