Zomby Wisdom

Over lunch today, I was talking about relationships with my co-workers. One of them, who had just gotten married about a month ago, went through relationship classes with his beloved before they were married--classes that were offered through their church and that were aimed at making sure that the couples were well-prepared for what marriage would hold for them. He was explaining something that he had learned about the reasons that men and women argue and fight in relationships. It was something about men needing respect and women needing love.

This overcomplicates things.

“I argue,” I explained, “because I’m right. She argues because she hasn’t yet realized that I’m right. Give her time.”

The consensus seems to be that I might need relationship classes.

On an entirely other note, this is the kind of wisdom you might be able to expect if I can manage to find the equipment, knowledge, time, and will-power to pull off a series of podcasts that I would like to put together. I’ll be looking to put that together after I return from vacation in a couple weeks--if you have any ideas or suggestions, let me know. I already have a few themes that I know I want to discuss, but I’m always open to new concepts.

Podcasting, eh? Well, there’s always the age-old question:

2 peas, or not 2 peas?

Megan Fox or Eva Longoria?

Or, anything but MJ.

“I argue,” I explained, “because I’m right. She argues because she hasn’t yet realized that I’m right. Give her time.”

The consensus seems to be that I might need relationship classes.

Only if you ever failt to be right.

In my case, my wife and I don’t argue because she’s already long since figured out that I’m always right. Which reduces her to, “Will you please stop being right all the time?”

Now I’ll have a comeback: “If I stop, it’ll mean relationship classes. Do you want that on your conscience?”

I’m always right too. What you have to realize is that it doesn’t matter, at least where women are concerned. You can be right all you want, you’re still wrong, and even if you were by some miracle to actually be right (which is impossible), you’d still be a jerk for being right.

Unrelated drunken question:
Best Rock album ever
Quadrophenia
OR
London Calling

All other answers are Null and Void

I thought about podcasting once.  While I’d like to listen to your podcasts, truth is I hadlry listen to podcasts at all as it is… I think I prefer the original blogosphere, when it was mostly text.

> Best Rock album ever

You’re implicitly arguing that it isn’t Dark Side of the Moon, or Made in Japan, or Led Zeppelin II.

Best Rock album ever
Quadrophenia
OR
London Calling

I’d say Quadrophenia, if only because I’ve heard enough of it to know its quality. I also like The Clash but must qualify that by starting with “Rock the Casbah,” which immediately marks me as an outsider. Is that on “London Calling”?

Ditto. I don’t understand the craze that led to podcasting and, subsequently, vlogging—if I want to hear people talk about their opinions I have a radio, and if I want to watch videos of people talking about their opinions I can go down to the local gun store, pass instant check, and blow my brains out.

People who commit suicide get sent to hell, and what do you think is on TV 24/7 in hell?

The Obama Channel? Or maybe all MJ, all the time.

I’m pretty much with McGehee in re. podcasting. Reading is faster than listening. As far as vlogging, depends on the topic, I suppose. An online review of the Paul Reed Smith Custom 24 is enhanced by the ability to demonstrate it. But I’m not sure the world is ready for ZB on the telly.

Or maybe all MJ, all the time.

Worse, people’s opinions of MJ.

Hence, I avoided watching TV news after his death—though how to tell the difference between that avoidance and the default TV news avoidance I’d been practicing before he died, is a hypothetical question best considered while watching angels dance on the head of Keith Olbermann.

Maybe I’ll re-think that podcast idea. I’m glad that you guys are honest with me.

Outside that, I’d just like to note that “hypothetical question best considered while watching angels dance on the head of Keith Olbermann” is one of the funniest comments I’ve read in quite some time.

Nice.

Oh, and London Calling in a big way for me.

Hmm.. I lean slightly toward Quadrophenia, Vafer theen margin, though.

Oh, and while swimming in rivers this summer, just remember, if you see Llamas where people are swimming shout “Look out, there are Llamas!”

(sorry, that just amuses me to no end)
