Podcast: Chris Rants on Things Current and Otherwise

Too lazy to type, I take the bulleted list to audio form with some rants about things going on in the news as well as a few other things on my mind. Oh, and I use "colourful" language here and there so be forewarned!

I finally got around to listening to this. While you do have every right to podcast about whatever the fuck you want, I also have the right to tell you that was a bit of shitty podcast.

Did you miss your coffee the day this was recorded? Seriously man, go back and listen to this thing and tell me you don't have a stick up your ass. I say that with the best intentions.

Chris said...

Egan - the stick up my ass whas the underlying theme - it was all about being upset that so much attention goes to such trivial matters and real important issues get left behind. If you are familiar with the comedian Doug Stanhope, it was delivered very much in that style.

I know it was dark-ish and not everyone's cup of tea, but I also don't thing it was "shitty"; silly - sure.

Anyway, I do genuinely appreciate your take even if it's negative.

I guess I didn't agree with a lot of what you had to say, delivery or not. Of course that's your right to have your opinions and express them as you see fit.

I found many of your opinions on this podcast shallow though and something I wouldn't typically expect from you. It's as if you were interviewing for shock jock DJ job.

Egan - it was closer to shock jock dj style than my own just being me style -

Regarding the opinions expressed:
-I do thing that white house couple should be arrested
-I really don't care about golf or anything to do with the Tiger Woods story
-I am happy about Derek jeter
-I do think Chelsea Clinton was a bit homely as a kid and is attractive now
-The Dubai thing - it's a very exaggerated expression of my thoughts
-rhianna - I hate her music, that umbrella song is menacing. I don't want to see or hear her but I don't wish her har - again - something of an exaggeration here
-Hampster toy - I do think it's ridiculous and not just with this but with all toy of the year choices...again I got dark with the euthanasia comment which I know is ridiculous but un context, I do think is funny.
-Paper towels - my sentiments exactly.

I guess experimenting with the dark humor is a result of where I am in my personal life - not and excuse, just a fact - you'll hear more about that soon (I know I keep saying that but I must go to the fort first).

egan said...

Yeah, you keep talking about the dark time in your life without saying much. Leaves many of us in the dark and guessing what's up. Have there been transgressions?

Sorry, I just had to ask because of our good golf friend Tiger.

I don't give a shit about a lot of those topics you discussed either. I do have to say you're missing the mark on the select-a-size paper towels though. They rock because one can use small pieces of paper therefore using less paper when possible.
