Do Not Attempt?
This was a special show as it featured the triumphant return of Chris Brown, host of the Meet The Skeptics podcast. It had been more than a year since I had Chris on for a Ten Minute Topic, so this time we went way over ten minutes. I had Chris on to talk about The Amazing Meeting 2014, which he attended earlier this month.
But first, I talked about a couple car commercials that have me somewhat annoyed or, at least, curious. One is for Chevy and it is a montage of people doing summer-y things. One such thing is jumping into water and as that shot is being shown there is a disclaimer at the bottom of the screen warning viewers, "Do not attempt." What? Then why show it?
The other ad has two coworkers hopping into their sporty cars and racing each other home. It turns out they live across the street from each other. Which got me thinking, "Uh, guys? Carpool!"
TAM Talk With Chris Brown
Since I could not attend, Chris Brown gave us the lowdown on this year's conference. He reported on Penn Jillette's Bacon and Doughnuts Party, George Hrab's MCing and his annual video glitch, Carol Tavris' kerfuffle causing (to those who weren't there to hear it) talk, Bill Nye the Science Guy's talk, and 'An Honest Liar,' the documentary focusing on the Amazing Randi.
Movie Recommendation: None
Chris and I just talked too long for me to have time to recommend a movie, so you are on your own for the next two weeks. That's right, there will be no show next Saturday. That's the day of the big Paul McCartney concert.
Music heard on the show...
Dimland Radio opening theme song: 'Ram' by The Yoleus
Closing song: 'Angler's Treble Hook' by $5 Fiddle
