Episode 216 - In The Helmet


Now over to Dave with the weather.  Thanks Dave, it's going up to 16 today, though it is a little chilly right now.  Should be sunny and clear all week.

In case you haven't guessed, I'm doing the whole 'type some of this stuff up in advance' deal.

Things started out as they often do, with Isabelle not being able to find her glasses.  She found them, inside her bike helmet.  Actually I found them.  Spare me your blind jokes....

We talked a bit about rationality vs gut feelings.

Then I shopped!  I got a really good cashier.  Also, I saw a person whose taste in music would not really fit with mine.

After that Isabelle talked about her upcoming show, we're both pretty excited about it.


Episode 215 - Value Added


Seems like it is going to be a nice day.  It's only 7am as I type this, and it is foggy, but that is because it got cold over night and is starting to warm up.  Supposed to hit 17 today.  We got Jonno a new bike, so he and I will go for a ride later.  

I'm back on the university senate!  I voted against a motion to extend.  It was a pretty good session actually, just too long.  We had a guest speaker, Ken Coates, and he was good.  Then we all had a couple of beers afterwards.

Isabelle has her first show as a working artist (not a student one) coming up.  It is with two other people who are friends of hers, one who was briefly on this podcast a few years ago.  It should be pretty great. 

Hope you like this episode.

I also hope you like the picture of me in the hat that Isabelle took.

Oh yeah, there is another Isabelle pick in this episode!

Episode 214 - Metacasting


Yup, writing before we go again.

Isabelle chose at least one song today, so see if you can guess which one it was.  Might be more than one, as noted, we haven't recorded yet.

I got a new bike.  That pleases me, and it will probably come up.


You probably don't know this, but Isabelle is the anti fun.

Lots of potential good titles today, I hope you liked the one I used.

Isabelle was having trouble getting her seatbelt on because she was wearing many layers of sweaters and what have you.  We took a picture of one of those items so you can see it for yourself.

Hey at the LCBO they were handing out free shots of vodka.  So that's a thing.  I remarked to the woman who was slinging the drinks that it was the earliest in the day that I have ever drank vodka.  She deadpanned to me 'I doubt that'.  Pretty good stuff.

Isabelle put in a grant proposal.  It is a pretty cool idea.  She bought an old typewriter, and she types.  Then Jonathan types.  It sounds pretty cool.  The sound of the typewriter reminds me of the olden days.
