ADHDcast EPISODE XIII – Narutomaguchi

*Tired from a busy day of going on secret missions, slaughtering the innocent and/or just playing your way through a long-ass RPG? Never fear, my shinobi friend! Blance your chakra with… ADHDcast!

Pull up a tatami (once our host is through gushing about the Anamanaguchi show), and chill out with D. the Deejay, Garrett Williams, John Waynick, Brandi Shade, and Tom Schalk as they meditate upon the tenets of: maps of the uh area uh duh yeah, heavy drinking, spitting or swallowing (Kool-Aid, obviously), perspective in Brandivision, guessing Tom’s age, John’s dirty little secret of being a Copy Ninja of the bedroom, bongiorno, what they say about women with big hands, Shade versus the fly, babies doing the electric slide, being constipated by a webcam, Earl Grey, where your hole is, Naruto Shippuden, Shaman King and various other anime/manga, light novels, The Whimsy of Haruhi Suzumiya, acting like a white boy, bursting out in song, Sinead O’Connor’s legacy, topless Alanis Morissette, lighting off virtual fireworks, updates on Mr. Mark Stantz, fish tacos, King’s Hawaiian rolls and other picnic food, men’s facial fashion, having an orgy (or a dinosaur), having an Orgy (the band) and other ancient music, who may or may not have impeccable handwriting, caning the children, Penn and Teller’s “Fool Us”, Boston accents, the many Dungeons & Dragons movies and their varying quality, my budding career as a director unbeknownst to me, Garrett the Garden Gnome, marrying off your pet fox, interfaces and technical difficulties, spicy fireworks, lip mis-reading, Beats by Dre and other less-expensive-and-equally-good headphones, love and marriage, sports talk, my head looking like a beer gut, plans for studio space, being “too nerdy”, Sabrina the skunk, console versus PC gaming, and… that’s it?

Be sure to weave the appropriate hand signs to defeat these intimidating credits:

  • Most of the *free* music utilized in this podcast can be found on Kahvi.org [by Island Near The Clouds, Yimino, and Altus + Trx], but I also used most of the Anamanaguchi album Power Supply, which can be found at Archive.org.
  • The song “Modern Hearts” was used with generous permission by those zany dudes, The Knocks. Go give them money NOW
  • Also, I used a bunch of permissably-short clips of songs by many, many bands. These are covered under “fair use”, but you should definitely still go buy their music. Because it’s awesome.
  • Once and for all previous and future episodes, some of the digitized “announcers” make their home at VoiceRSS. If you need something read aloud and are too lazy to use your own vocal cords (like me), go for it!
  • Any questions/suggestions/comments can be submitted to diadae at mail dotkom (that’s an email address I’m spelling out phoenetically to avoid spammbotz), or posted in comments on this blog post. Even if you have audio questions or comments, go right ahead; I can splice them in. This includes questions for any guests, which I’ll bring up next time they’re on the show (if ever… though it’s likely they will be).
  • Don’t forget that you can subscribe to my YouTube channel to catch VIDEO versions of the interviews! (WARNING: the clips are unedited and will likely take longer to watch than the audio-only versions that I condense down into my podcast releases.)
  • This podcast is NSFW for language and crude humor.
  • This episode clocks in almost exactly 2 hours.
  • ADHDcast is released under Creative Commons.

Choose which format you need wisely, as the other two may be shadow doppelgängers:

ADHDcast Episode 13 Zip files: (mp3) (m4a) (ogg) … and (one long mp3)

And this is the end of this post, because ninja strike hard and fade away… without trace!
*BAMF* <-borrowed from Nightcrawler, we’ll return it, we swear

~D.

(PS: By the way, if you’re seeing double that’s because there was an error in the previous Episode 13 post so that iTunes subscribers were prompted to download another copy of Episode 12. Whoops! This was the easiest fix.)

ADHDcast EPISODE XII – Ataris, Legos and Bagels, Oh My!

Great. Much though you have been dreading it, time has come to slap y’all with yet another… ADHDcast!

Let your spine be tingled by D. the Deejay, Garrett Williams, John Waynick, Brandi Shade, and Aedylon Issyrol taking time out of their not-so-busy schedules to record their awful discussions about the Ballad of Chicken Nugget, John doing cartwheels, muffin stumps, Nelson Mandela, Nightwing: Earth One, crowdfunding away your old van, Man Of Steel versus Snuffaluffagus, Star Trek: Into Brightness?, Doctor Who: the early years, lost episodes of Animaniacs, Canadians, Elvis eating Nelson Mandela while he’s living inside a waffle (Nelson, not Elvis), the Nexus 7 tablet, a girl with a Lego leg, illegal peas, Rocko the wallaby falling into cleavage, reclaiming land, Xbox One again, which gamepad/controller had the best design, Windows 8, what you get from the Navy, new versus old comic book movies, the villains of Smallville, fashion in Logan’s Run, the youngest female Arab doctor in Qatar, forgetting your mother’s birthdate, how TV volume increases with one’s age, the dilemma of leaving to use the bathroom while at the cinema, singing the Ducktales theme in multiple languages, the plethora of WB cartoons in the early 90s, something to the effect of Doug, mac ‘n’ cheese, the transference of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles copyrights, bagel dispensers, sexy Post-It notes, chickens wielding swords, bloatware, the Holy Way of YouTube, Tom Jane being the most awesome Punisher ever, Ron Perlman being the ONLY Hellboy ever, Keaton versus Conroy, the 30-year anniversary of the dumping of truckloads of Atari E.T. cartridges, apps, and Aedylon with sports!

Before we give up the ghost, let’s roll out the cred carpet:

  • Most of the *free* music utilized in this podcast can be found on Kahvi.org [by Blackberry, Lenaid, Brioskj, John Novak, and Island Near The Clouds].
  • The songs “Bee’s Bagel Honey” by Atari Aria, as well as two renditions of “Suddenly” by GiGi Fouquet, were used with permission from the artists. Go give them all money NOW
  • How’s my quality? Aside from the noisiness of John’s daughters at the beginning, I like to think it’s steadily improving. Any questions/suggestions/comments can be submitted to diadae at mail dotkom (that’s an email address I’m spelling out phoenetically to avoid spammbotz), or posted in comments on this blog post. Even if you have audio questions or comments, go right ahead; I can splice them in.

  • This episode clocks in at 2 hours and 20 minutes.
  • ADHDcast is released under Creative Commons.

It’s your funeral, so you have a choice of these three luxurious caskets:

ADHDcast Episode 12 Zip files: (mp3) (m4a) (ogg) … and (one long mp3)

And we’re done here. Unfortunately, there will likely be another one next Monday, so let that be a black cloud on your horizons over the coming week. Later!

  • How’s my quality? I like to think it’s steadily improving.

ADHDcast EPISODE X – Birthday Secks

Break out the streamers (and the strippers), pick up a keg, call your parents and lie that you’re staying over at your most responsible friend’s house! Time to party down with… ADHDcast!

Between “pin the tail on the donkey” and trying to get That One Dude to stop wearing a lampshade, hear D. the Deejay converse with Brandi Shade, Mark Stantz, John Waynick and Garrett Will-yums about all manner of things, including but not limited to birthday sex (duh), selling cars to Nigerian princes, waterproof phones, Super Olive Bros., the gravitational pull of Shade’s mother’s “donk”, Russian Leprechauns, playing basketball in the kitchen, wishing for a sex change, ramen with chocolate chips, John’s date night with Zach, the dangers of masturbating with leprosy, Daft Punk’s new album, lesbians with guns, losing your pants, keeping up with the Kardashians (or not), baked potatoes, penistrees, the one cool moment in D.’s history, strawberry birthday cigars, your horoscope for today (or your birthdate), Brandi trying to pronounce hard words, being the Great Goblin, marking one’s territory, Narnia, Babybel cheese, a flock of Peters, racism in Dunkin Donuts, getting pregnant with a jelly bean, dissecting “Libertarian”, biting in very unfortunate places, Alienware, the soundtracks of the Ninja Turtles movies, breaking into Livejournal and/or Myspace, and the fate of The Shadow. Also, Mark takes the helm for the first (and only?) time, as well as Story Hour With Shade!

Before crawling into the bathtub for a few precious hours of sleep, let’s clean up all the credits:

  • Most of the *free* music utilized in this podcast can be found on Kahvi.org [Sebastien Marchal, Reii, Luntaire, NC Thompson, and Aleksi Eeben]. Also, “Helix Nebula” by Anamanaguchi, which can be found on Archive.org.

  • Things mentioned: that weird hat-trick I taught John? Even though you can’t see it on a podcast, I’ll credit Brett Iredell for teaching it to me. The student has become the master. Also, the “public service announcement” at around the 12-minute mark was performed by the inimitable imitator, Tom Schalk.
  • The quality isn’t as bad as it could be, although I did have to remove a 20-minute “dance party” that Brandi initiated.
  • Any questions/suggestions/comments can be submitted to diadae at mail dotkom (that’s an email address I’m spelling out phoenetically to avoid spammbotz), or posted in comments on this blog post. Even if you have audio questions or comments, go right ahead; I can splice them in.

  • This podcast is NSFW for language and crude humor.
  • This episode clocks in at 3 hours and 7 minutes. Yes, I know that’s horrendously long, but it’s my birthday, dangit! I split it roughly in the middle, though.
  • ADHDcast is released under Creative Commons.

Our show is being broadcast in three highly-intoxicated formats:

ADHDcast Episode 10 Zip files: (mp3) (m4a) (ogg) … and (one long mp3)

Tuck the tablecloth into your collar like a complete slob and hear John Waynick and Garrett Williams once again join D. the Deejay in examing the merits and failings of chicken, fish and Five Guys burgers and fries, killing gays in Uganda, Man Of Steel and its similarities to Dragonball Z, being underwater, having soda in your pants, microphone envy, getting Hamsterdance stuck in your brain, Gambit and Fosters, suspending listening of podcasts due to spoilers for recent movies, Beats by Dre, doing a Nine Inch Nails cover album in the “lounge lizard style”, DCUO v Rift, Ready Player One and my nauseating love of it, Super Crate Box, a virtual theme park built for two, ICQ (remember that? No?), Creezley and what it may perhaps be, Real Genius references, David Bowie cloning John, the Angry Video Game Nerd Movie (again), wearing a stylish snowshovel, Hunter X Hunter, and getting birthday head!
