Today we hear part 1 of my interview with the lovely NATALIE GELMAN and hear some of her music, plus we hear from Madame Rootabega, Valentino, and Bison Bentley.

I usually write something here but my brain is numb from all the crazy opinions I've heard from people lately. So numb. Let's hear it for nutty opinions! It's what keeps this show going.

Next show it's part 2 of my interview with NATALIE GELMAN, plus we hear from Chely Shoehart, Floyd the Floorman, and John Deer the Engineer!

Today it's the news segment THIS IS inTRESTING where I am joined by Hayley who covers some inTRESTING news stories from around the world! We also hear from Benita, the Disgruntled Fiddle Player, and the Brewmaster!

I am accused of being old on this show. Yes, I've been around a while, but I can't recall ever saying to my elders that they were old. That was always looked at as being kinda disrespectful. Millenials don't care about this and just flaunt their youth by saying things like, "You're old." Miley Cyrus cracked a joke about that pertaining to her dad event though Billy Ray doesn't seem to be aging and Miley is doing everything in her power to age herself prematurely. Miley, you might end up a Lindsay yet. Millenials, see you in two decades when you'll be "old" too!

Next show it's the amazing and beautiful singer/songwriter/world-traveler Natalie Gelman! Plus we hear from Madame Rootabega, Valentino, and Bison Bentley!

Today it’s the return of the much-loved segment MIKE ON MOBILE where we’ll speak again with the lovely MONICA VODIKA from a crazy dog park chatting about crazy things! Plus we’ll hear from Chely Shoehart, Floyd the Floorman, and John Deer the Engineer!

I commute 15 miles to work everyday and I do it by completely avoiding the freeway. I drive up a major street with traffic signals based every couple blocks away. They're mostly green but that was not the case today. Oh my god I said "Oh my god!" a lot this morning on my drive. I'm trying to find the redeeming value of a stop light: You can change the podcast on your iPhone. Which reminds me that if you own a podcast show do me a favor and don't record it as softly as possible. I CAN'T HEAR YOU! Record it louder. Record it hotter. If you want to be heard prove it! Now on with the show.

Next show it's the return of the much loved news feature THIS IS inTRESTING where we look at some news stories you'll say, "This is INtresting!" Plus we'll hear from Benita, the Disgruntled Fiddle Player, and the Brewmaster!

Today we hear from Hayley, Madame Rootabega, Valentino, and Bison Bentley as we look at some interesting TECH NEWS in the feature THE MIKELOPEDIA INSANCIA!

So this blog post isn't going to rhyme. What, Mike? Your posts are supposed to rhyme? They're like lyrics or poetry? Yeah, that just dawned on you. That's how it is. This blog post is just to tell you the plumbing issue got resolved which we talk about this show as well as some interesting tech news and helpful tips. Hayley joins me again and we get into some twisted discussions. Lyrics from classic AM radio are recited. Teeth are gnashed. Witchcraft practiced. Paragraphs end.

Today it's the FINALE of my INTO AN INTERVIEW with the TOLEDO, OHIO indie band DARK OCEAN COLORS! Plus we hear from Haley, Benita, the Disgruntled Fiddle Player, and the Brewmaster!

Oh I'm not a big fan of September, it's around the curb--oh, yeah. Part of the horror of living in suburbia is if you have old clay pipes they will be disturb-iad by the roots in your front yard. I get so pertub-iad. I'm using the root killer like crazy to try to win this battle. If I lose it's the plumber and I'm up the creek without a paddle pulling out my check book and seeing butt crack as he works. And lately in my PodCastro Valley suburbia everyone's out walking and walking dogs from 6pm to 8pm. The sun is still up, the temperature right now in California is wonderful, and an overplayed Natalie Merchant song seems to ring down the streets as I walk these streets have I been blind, have I been lost in that great street carnival? You're welcome.

Today it's a wonderful new fun-filled much-loved segment you know as INTO AN INTERVIEW where I speak to another interesting and fascinating guest. Plus we hear from Chely Shoehart, Floyd the Floorman, and John Deer the Engineer!

Well living in California has a couple downsides. For one, there's only so much you can buy because the prices in this abundant state are conspicuously high. You would think they would give us a break because everyday we nearly die on the roads because of the nuts who drive. Oh, and here in the Bay Area you get stink eye for trying to use your American Express card, or ANY credit card for that matter! When I lived in Alabama they took Am Ex everywhere, no matter how shoddy the business looked. Yes, I like shopping shoddy. Why Am Ex? They gave me awesome points to use on travel--hotels and such. Here in the Bay Area a lot of places they don't even take Visa! Or they do but you have to spend over 10 bucks. No! No, I will not play your stupid game. If you're a business here in the Bay Area and you charge outrageous prices already you better take my damn card or I'm walkin'. Anyway, I stock up Costco and live off that for a month. Invest in a good fridge, is my tip to you.

Today it's the return of the much loved feature DO YOU KNOW DAT? with fascinating news you didn't know about, PLUS we hear from Madame Rootabega, Valentino, and Bison Bentley!

I'm noticing a paragraph aversion in today's world of constant perversion going to hell in a hand basket or a basket with a sturgeon. This song has a slightly less silly version but you don't want to hear it: Too boring. Paragraph's aren't being used but text use is soaring on smartphones. People don't want to write paragraphs or read them so it's quick Larry King-type sentences. We're living in a 140 character world and you just have to deal with i.

Today it’s the FINALE of my INTO AN INTERVIEW with Michael Shaw of the band AN INTIMATE EVENING WITH MICHAEL SHAW! Plus we hear from Benita, the Disgruntled Fiddle Player, and the Brewmaster!

I’ve discovered something about comedy that seems very true: I know a guy who makes me laugh my butt off which is hard to do, yet I know other people think this guy’s intense and will lose his cool. But nine out of ten stories this guy tells leave me falling off my stool. Don’t you love people who laugh at their own jokes? You can’t force yourself to laugh. A fake laugh is gross. Laugh for real. Hang out with an intense friend who has a funny story to tell.

Today it’s PART 3 of my INTO AN INTERVIEW with Michael Shaw of the band AN INTIMATE EVENING WITH MICHAEL SHAW. Plus we hear from Chely Shoehart, Floyd the Floorman, and John Deer the Engineer!

I was trying to enjoy a beautiful Bay Area afternoon sitting on the grass or what WAS grass before the "drought of doom" and decided to call my mom because smartphones do that too along with texting but nowadays that’s all people do. I was talking to her and suddenly this guy shows up. It was a quasi-Zodiac moment and this guy was a dunce. His dogs start barking at my dog. My dog is cool as a cucumber and doesn’t escalate the situation, but then this guy doesn’t leave! He remains there, looming, letting his dogs bug mine. I yelled at him (and I hardly ever yell at anyone) HEY, MAN, I’M ON THE PHONE! CAN’T YOU SEE THAT??? He says, "Oh, I thought you were almost done." What?!? I had made it a point to say very loudly, "So how are you doing, MOM!" Dude, I’m on the phone with my mom, go the hell away! People can be so dense. I never yell at anyone, but clueless people need to be yelled at as loudly as possible. Maybe louder.
