150 – Unwind After Work and Fail the Turing Test

We stitch together the false start recording from last week with the continuation a week later. Gay bullets, gay burgers. Google's AI labs have leaked something interesting. Nothing Will Fundamentally Change still has not fundamentally changed. War and strife, up is down, erotic nukes and frothy jingoism. Socialist in-fighting. Mexico's President AMLO goes HAM after boycotting Biden's condescending little summit of the Americas. Recycling is fake, the Unabomber was right. A prison bans books in Spanish and Swahili because prison guards are a'feared of prison riots that they can't decipher the linguistic value of. Interstitial palate cleansers about nature's oddities: source.

149 – Wittgenstein Was Far More Based Than Elon Musk

One of our longest cold opens yet. Colombian electoral politics take a tentatively promising leftward turn. Mass shootings, American exceptionalism par excellence. A dipshit congress-thing weighs in on the discourse and let's us know that wokeness and CRT our the main culprits for causing mass shootings. Weird, obsessive clickbait harassing Greta Thunberg is clicked upon, discussed. Marjorie Taylor Greene makes a *shockingly* *stupid* proclamation, and has four less syllables in her name than AOC. Elon Musk can't code and is just another boring villain who happens to shitpost. Biden and Modi have a big idiot's laugh about how nations across the world handled the totally, very much so, now eradicated coronavirus pandemic.

148 – Change the Currency to Oak Leaves, Greenspan!

Biden's in our neck of the woods. Some weird facts interspersed for palate cleansing. Let's hope Lula can displace Bolsonaro (whom Musk is courting in dangerous ways). Sonic inflation, don't even look it up. The NYT claims that the good times are upon us! Mayor Pete accidentally critiques capitalism on TV. A German will make a movie about the subtle and all-equalizing majesty of Japanese restrooms.

147 – Technical Difficulties in the Beautiful Sinkhole’s Ancient Forest

Well we had a major recording problem in which Josh's track stopped recording about 20 minutes in and wasn't realized until about 90 minutes into the podcast. So we released those first 20 minutes, tacked on an explanation and some recommendations. Sorry 'bout that. We were actually keeping the mood relatively light for once, too, which paradoxically makes me think there's some deeper force out there dictating that our overall tenor be one of doom. Not really, but, ya know, just feels like something beyond bad luck. Anyway, our Discord is newly open to all comers. Check it out.

146 – Give My Stimulus Check to the Palo Alto Capsule Life Correspondents Dinner

Elon Musk hilariously, idiotically, feigns worries about the CIA finding him with two self-inflicted gunshots to the back of the head (emeralds pour out according to crypto-bro lore). Updates and reminders on Steven Donziger, Julian Assange and Daniel Hale. A brief rage spiral directed at the White House Correspondents Dinner and Trevor Noah's bafflingly tone deaf and hypocritical self-suckjob concerning the US “free press” and all its intrepid journalist-poet-warriors.  Aggressively pushing the George W warhawk agenda and cozying up to literal Klansmen: Joe Biden is a piece of shit pre-plastic surgery and post- or it's just gaffey stutters, stuttery gaffes. Nate Silver's stupidass website tries to convince those ground under the boot of capital, imperialism, graft, etc, that it was their meager stimulus checks that have caused skyrocketing inflation ('stop hitting yourself, stop hitting yourself ' goes the schoolyard chant). The US government, in its routine, matter of fact way, covers up more imperialistic crime RE Haitian Presidential Assassination. People are cramming themselves into little 'pods' (14 people in a 3 bed 2 bath house) for what still amounts to exorbitant monthly rent.

145 – New is the New Old

Back after a weird two week hiatus and talking about the incoherent mess of artificial “cool” and “intellect” that bored billionaire Peter Theil is amassing around him like a human moat AKA The New Right. Josh wishes actual non-parodic, non-satirical bodily harm upon the insufferable PhD in Edge Lord Studies incarnate, Curtis Yarvin. Et cetera.

144 – That of Which We Cannot Speak We Must Pass Over in Digression

Millionaire lifelong politician tells the unhoused to “go home.” Nazis getting pwnd in WWII. Bloods and Crips develop class-based praxis. The immense tragedy of the Saudi siege upon Yemen. A bird shits on Biden and reminds us of “Birdie Sanders,” etc. MEP Clare Daly goes off on actual Nazi-saluting MEP Angel Dzhambazki during a parliamentary proceeding. WWIII flare up. Covid, etc. NYT affirms the glaringly obvious about Hunter Biden's laptop, penis. Digressions and a lot of movie chatter in the mix as well.

143 – In the Foothills of the President’s Decaying Synapses

Biden tops himself topping himself. Robber Barrons be robbin' (teachers, specifically).  Starbucks cracks down on labor unions. Amazon does the same in an even more distoptian manner (see: list of banned words). Global supply chains be breakin' down. Student loans be unforgiven. People be lonely and weird and sex is off the menu for unintuitive reasons. Peter Thiel & Co. want to take away our fun drugs and MKULTRA them on our asses. Elon be Elon-ing. Tech monsters be tech monstering.

142 – Houdini’s View From Nowhere, Everywhere, Somewhere

Amazon labor union's huge tiny gains made in Staten Island. Houdini-talk interspersed throughout. As the World Burns. Make the personal sleep-deprivation political sleep-deprivation. That's me in the corner, losing my ambition, that's me in the spot light, eh fuck it. China Covid, Covid China, again. And heaps of digressions available upon stream and/or download.
