dimland radio 1-28-12 show notes

It's Fe-BRU-ary

A couple pet peeves mentioned at the top of the show. One is how folks pronounce February. It's Fe-BRU-ary, not Feb-YOU-ary or Febbie-ary. Fe-BRU-ary! Get it right!

The second was the whole new millennium beginning in 2000. No! The new millennium began January 1, 2001, but "no one likes a math geek, Scully."

A Tale From My Drinking Days

I took a good deal of time talking about one particular night at the local watering hole. About how I nearly got beat up. It was a very special night of heavy, heavy drinking. Oh, boy!

Atheist Drops The Ball

Kate Smurthwaite, activist and comic, was on a British debate show giving her views on whether or not heaven exists (she doesn't believe it does). She makes a couple really good points that might get a fence-sitter give her ideas some thought. But then she drops the ball by engaging in an ad homenim attack.

Watch her as she carries the ball to the one yard line and then fum
bles it here.

Movie Recommendation (Hayden's suggestion): Yellow Submarine (1968)

(United Artists)

Earlier today, I asked my eight year-old son, Hayden, for a movie recommendation. He suggested 'Yellow Submarine,' the Beatles' animated feature. It's good trippy fun with plenty of good tunes.

Music heard on the show...

Dimland Radio opening theme song: 'Ram' by The Yoleus
First ad break bumpers: 'Cracking' by Suzanne Vega & 'Dirty Mind' by Prince
Second ad break bumpers: '99 Luftballons' by Nena & 'Love On A Farmboy's Wages' by XTC
