The Rise Of Neck Tattoos: ODO 163

Kind of an uneventful week I guess. We went to the first food truck event of the season, (now that the sun wont cook all the vendors inside their trucks.) I give an update on my whole “being sick” thing. No news theme this week, just stupidity. There’s a guy who got fired over his attendance record, an idiot who tried to fight a grizzly bear, and an unplanned rant inspired by Moby’s new neck tattoo. Lastly, in Recommended Listening, we’re exploring the New Kingdom of America with “The Rise of King Asilas.

Oh No! What Were You Thinking!?: ODO 162

Soooo… I’m sick. No 2 ways about it. I’ve been coughing my head off, and my voice is shot. So I’m gonna continue to talk about how I’m sick and my voice is shot because I’m smart that way. On a similar “smart” note, all of the news this week can be summed up in one question, “what were they thinking?” There’s a preacher trying to outdo Jesus, a really idiotic French court ruling, and a Jackass who spent his life savings fighting a speeding ticket. But wait, there’s more. In Recommended Listening I’m going back to a show that’s been mentioned but not formally featured, it’s “Oh No! Lit Class.”

Puppies, Police, and Pumpkin Spice Spam: ODO 159

I still cannot believe it, but by a strange series of events, we have acquired another dog from my sister this week. In the news I’ve got weird proposed laws, pumpkin spice Spam, and a Jackass impersonating a police officer. In place of a Recommended Listening feature, I have a small sampling of what I’ve been bingeing lately ahead of some future features.

Release the Peanut Butter and Jelly: ODO 158

This week I had a startling revelation about my youngest son, and it involves a PB&J. Doing a complete 180, every story in the news has to do with penises. (I’m sorry. I don’t plan this I swear.) Wrapping it up (see what I did there) in Recommended Listening, it’s time to laugh your nose off as I “Release The Clowns”

Car Troubles, Poor Spending, and A Girl In Space: ODO 153

Summer is now in full swing, and that means getting the cars ready for vacation. Especially when one of the planned repairs forces your hand. From rental pogo sticks to shoddy land deals, this week’s news is all about poor spending. Lastly, in Recommended Listening, I have what seems to be my most talked about show not featuring John Bukenas. It’s actually time to talk about “Girl in Space.”

GoT Summer Blues? ODO 149

It’s the last week of school for my boys, and summer is right around the corner. In the news, I’ve got a few ways to really waste your money. I’ve got an update on last weekend’s Livestream For The Cure. And, in Recommended Listening, we’re revisiting a show that has announced their end. It’s time to say goodbye to More Gooder Than.

Don’t Eat That! ODO 147

So you know how I mentioned my wife being sick during Foodstock? Now that plague has spread across our boys. Speaking of plague, the news brings tales of why you should be more careful about what you eat. And finally, in Recommended Listening, its time to learn some cool stuff.
I’m talking about “Your Brain On Facts.”

Allergies, Keyboard Cats, and Other Unbelievably Stupid Things: ODO 144

Back in true form. I’m all over the place this week. I go from allergy meds to my cat coffee-ing my keyboard. The news brings a lot of porn, a big waste of money, and the worst penis enlargement idea ever. And in Recommended Listening it’s the now 5 time featured John Bukenas and his “Unbelievably Stupid Podcast.”

ODO 142: Birthday Bowling and WTF China?

Another show where I didn’t come up with a theme for the news, the news did that all by itself. I’ve got 3 stories out of China that just make me shake my head, including a couple questionable driver’s licenses, and an example of how not to incorporate smoothies into your diet. Plus, we took the boys bowling and, in so many words, we suck.
