The Drunken Dork Podcast Episode 16: Guilty Pleasures

This is an interesting episode in that I honestly thought it was lost.  It was originally recorded in January of 2014, while we here in Lower Michigan were still digging our way out of the storm that has come to be known as "Snowmageddon".  Shortly after recording it, I was editing it on my desktop when the computer suddenly died.  I told my fellow dorks that the episode was gone with the computer, and we all decided to move on.

 

Flash forward eight months, and I have a new lapptop hooked up to an older external hard drive I hadn't used in a few months and I found a backup of this episode that I had completely forgotten about.

Unfortunately, the audio leaves a little to be desired.  However, in my opinion this is one of our funnier episodes and there are enough gems in it to warrant publishing it, warts and all.

 

By the way, as long as I have your attention, be sure to like us on Facebook and email us at drunkendorkpodcast@gmail.com  We're dying to hear from you folks!

The Drunken Dork Podcast Episode 15: Goodbye, Mister Happy

It never fail to amaze me how celebrities - people we most likely will never meet in real life - Sometimes effect our lives in profound ways.  Our parents, our friends, our family and our loved ones are supposed to be the people who shape our world and the way we look at it.  Yet sometimes, the people who entertain us also contribute to the way we go through life in ways that surpass mere "entertainment".

That's when one of those strangers who we feel have been with us for nearly our whole life passes suddenly, the only word that seems appropriate is "grief".  It's shocking enough when someone like George Carlin has an unexpected heart attack or Christopher Reeve succumbs to the cumulated effects of his injuries. 

But when the world found out that one of the peole who spent most of the last four decades bringing it so much joy suffered from a depression that resulted in him taking his own life, that grief was amplified that much more.

I suppose if there were two things I would want to express in the wake of Robin William's death, it would be

1) If you are suffering from depression, **PLEASE** seek help.  The world is a much better place with you along for the ride.

and

2) It's my hope that Robin Williams's legacy isn't that of a "tortured artist".  He spent his career making us laugh.  And while I can't claim to have met the man, let alone having known him, it's my belief that he would want us to remember him as someone who made us smile and feel happy to be alive.

The Drunken Dork Podcast Episode 14: Guardians of the Galaxy - A "Before & After" Review

We live in a world where the #1 movie of Summer, 2014 stars a talking, gun-toting raccoon and his walking tree of a sidekick

I'll say it again:

We live in a world where the #1 movie of Summer, 2014 stars a talking, gun-toting raccoon and his walking tree of a sidekick.

On this episode of the show, we have the first in what we hope will be a series of "Before & After" reviews.  We begin with Jake & Tom sharing what is quite possibly the worst breakfast combo the Western World has ever seen.  Jake has seen the movie, while Tom hasn't.  Following this, we cut ahead a few hours after the boys have gotten back, having freshly seen the flick, and they share their immediate thoughts on it. 

Be sure to like us on Facebook, pre-order the movie, and while you're at it, feel free to email us at drunkendorkpodcast@gmail.com
