Am I Mad? Episode 26: Surrender Your Shield of Irony (RIP Colbert)

Stephen Colbert is giving up existing in a state of irony and I don’t know if my generation can handle it. Henry Birdseye and I mourn the upcoming loss of Colbert’s character; a living improvisation who gave a voice to those of us who deal with the ugly absurdities of the life by laughing at them. Colbert is talented enough to survive without living in sarcasm, but what the hell are the rest of us supposed to do?

Also I’m on Tumblr now. And Heartbleed is scary and important, right? All this and more in this week’s episode.

Am I Mad? Episode 22. If you strike down my derp it shall become more powerful than you can ever imagine

Bill Nye the Science Guy debated a derpy creationist and while it was funny, it probably helped save his derpy creationist museum. Good old science man Tinz is back to help me figure out just how easy it is for dumb people to become scientists. We also talk about the new villain on Jeopardy and reflect on Super Bowl XLVIII.

Am I Mad? Episode 19. Affluenza is real, you just have to believe in it

Mike Norris returns for the last podcast of the year! We talk affluenza, Christmas, Pope Francis, Chris Christie, the arrest of an Indian diplomat, and why we’re thankful for our shitty new budget.

What's Christmas Really All About Pie Chart


Episode Breakdown: (Runtime: 35 minutes)

0:00 Affluenza. It’s not a disease, it’s observable reality.

9:43 Megyn Kelly’s hilarious comedy bit “Santa is white, ok?” continues Fox News’s proud tradition of ruining Christmas every year.

17:00 Now that’s how ya pope!

22:30 Diplomat fight time with India.

24:35 Chris Christie may  have used a traffic jam on a bridge for a political revenge, which might seem petty if it’s not tickling the cockles of your corrupt Chicago heart.

It’s been a hell of a year, gang. Thanks to everyone who has listened and helped me try to make sense of this world. Expect regular new episodes onward into 2014. If you know anyone who would like the show, please direct them to the Am I Mad Facebook page. And if you haven’t Liked the Facebook page yet, what’s up with you man? I thought we were friends.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Am I Mad? Episode 18. Vengeful Hipster Villainry

If only Vengeful Hipster Villainry were just the sweet-ass name of me and Mike Haverty’s two person band. Sadly, it’s a pretty apt description of reality right now. Healthcare.gov rolled out to a sucky start, which means Republicans had a productive couple of weeks bitching and not passing laws, not unlike hipsters hating on something they briefly loved back in the 90′s. Except instead of get fired from their jobs, they get handed bags of casg. We also pay our respects to Paul Walker, who died at the age of 40 and received a traditional Internet funeral.

At one point in the podcast I reference a book whose title I can’t remember. It is Do Not Ask What Good We Do. You can click that link to buy it, but you probably don’t want to read it because it’ll anger your brain.

0:00: Repealing Obamacare Chapter 60,000: Websites can never be fixed

19:32 Filibuster? More like Fili-nuh, sir

Am I Mad? Episode 17: Men’s Rights Activists (That’s the joke)

Mike Haverty drops by and we discover that men’s rights activists are pretty funny when you strip away all the sadness, Russell Brand didn’t start a revolution last month, and the Internet hates Bitstrips. Like…really really hates Bitstrips.

Mens Rights Activists Thats the Joke

 


Episode Breakdown: (Runtime: 36 minutes)

0:00 Men’s rights activists hate feminists because they’re too sensitive to direct their frustrations at other men.

14:53 Russell Brand didn’t start a revolution. Why voting for “Big Ole Veiny Dick” is more effective than not voting at all.

23:30 Bitstrips are almost as bad as the Holocaust. At least according to my Facebook newsfeed.
