Comedy on Vinyl Podcast Episode 165 – Brian Fernandes on Brian Regan Live

Jordan, Jesse Go!’s own Sunny D, Brian Fernandes, stops by with a challenge he might not have realized was a challenge.  A stand-up album from the late nineties is very much out of my comfort zone, if only because I sort of stopped listening to and watching stand-up for a few years, starting

The Hands of a Surgeon

Well wash your hands three times and grab a scalpel, healthy listener, ‘cuz Buddies In Space are gonna cut you open and stuff you full of…humor…

OK, that started better than it ended up, huh?

Mike shares why waiting on doctors sucks and how he coped with it (hint: it involves snark). Videogames get a healthy talkin’ about as S’mike shares his experience getting caught up with the Augmented Reality Game/viral marketing I Love Bees campaign back in the day for Halo 2. Mike shares his excitement for his impulse Xbox One purchase and is mocked by S’mike for it.

And rightfully so.

Vintage comic books also get a healthy exploration, as they are ridiculous and are just asking to be made fun of.

Also: Bear rape! The Death and Ret-conning of Superman! The horrible Justice League trailer that tells the entire movie plot!

The drink of choice in this episode is tepid organic apple cider with Jaeger Honey Bourbon. With a bee hive top and everything. For serious.

What Brand Internet?

In my book, Post-Modem: The Interwebs Explained, I discuss many of my favorite Internet Future Theories, including building colonies on Internet.  One noticeably absent subject, however, is how we will refer to Interwebs, Internets and Webules in the future.   This might seem trivial, but imagine those who said the same thing in the early part of the 20th century.

“How silly!  Who cares how we might refer to bandages in this imaginary future.  Whether we refer to them as finger stick ’ems, handages or Band-Aids, the blood will cease!”

How silly, indeed.  Is what I would say to this hypothetical person.  It might seem harsh to use their own words against them, but again, ignorance of the eventualities that time will bring is not an excuse for not understanding how things will work out.  Forethought is key when divining what the future holds, and that is what I hoped this segment of my book to be, should I have conceived of it before it went to press.

Ten years ago, did we assume that “searching” on the Internet would soon turn a brand name into an verb?  When “Hotbotting” didn’t catch on, did we not bristle at the attempt to make “Googling” a household word?  Let us not ignore the great possibilities ahead of us when we look deep into ourselves as a culture to discover what will be the “Kleenex” that becomes synonymous with “Internet.”

Naturally, the first assumption is that we might stick with the shortened version we use to refer to our surfing experiences, like Net, Web or “Dot C A,” as it is spoken in Canada.  But, again, these still refer very specifically to the actual Internet itself.  It would be like calling a wooden writing implement a “graphite holder.”  We can be certain the heirs to the Pencil, Inc fortune thank their lucky stars every day that we don’t.

The second assumption we might make is that “Googling” will make the logical jump for the Internet to simply be called “Google,” given the ubiquity of its services, or the frequency of its homepageness.   Perhaps, still, another contender, not yet on the scene, will make itself known and become the new Google.

But I contend that the winner of the name-branded Internet will be the company that perfects the web browser.  Nay, the company who owns the naming rights to said browser.   Branding Internet before you even get to it is the key to changing our perception of it.  Will it be one of the world’s most profitable companies?  Possibly.  Purchasing the naming rights to an entire service could motivate diversification in a company with the strictest of business models.  Imagine if one single company essentially owned the trademark on what we call an entire foodstuff, drinkstuff or snackstuff.  Even regionally, such a coup would make the company so powerful that all stuffs would be required to be served with a side of them.

Given typical internet success stories, however, I believe that Internet will re-brand as as the result of a start-up.  Not just a start-up, but a crowd-funded start-up.  The internet is built on sharing, on networking, on digitally communing, and on turning all of those things into a willingness to pump something full of funds with none of the benefits of ownership.  The next browser will come from you, if you’re the type of person who likes to crowdfund, so whatever the name, it will be, in a sense, sort of yours, almost.  Unless, of course, Kleenex buys that browser from the owner of the crowdfunding campaign.

Until next time – Good Kleenexing.

Comedy on Vinyl Podcast Episode 163 – Jeff Abraham on Bob Newhart Rarities

In a first for our podcast, we’re about to premiere a Bob Newhart track that is 50 years old and you probably only heard if you were there for the recording.  From a one-of-a-kind acetate in the Abraham Comedy Archive, the “Paul Revere” sketch by Bob Newhart does not appear on any Newhart albums, a

Post-Modem Now Available on Amazon and Other Sellers!

A loyal fan has sent me irrefutable proof that my book is now available for purchase on Amazon.com (and at BarnesAndNoble.com, though that screenshot was much less fascinating) for $14.99.  I’m also told that, per my request, Amazon is pairing my book with only the most exclusive day-to-day calendars, as specifically related to memes (in this case, an hilarious series of 365 instances of people being mean to dogs).

As I likely, or should have, mentioned in my book, the success of a meme can only be judged in physical terms.  Analytics, facts and numbers can only do so much, when applied to the digitalness of the Internet and Internet-based materials.  It’s when the physicality of paper comes into the mix that the same analytics, facts and numbers actually start to mean something.  Having that physical thing in your hand, something you can watch literally reduce in mass before your eyes, day-by-day (in the case of a day-to-day calendar or a book you’ve vowed to slowly destroy), reminds us of the hope that we can fill life with, provided we do so through humanity’s most succinct and pure form of expression – the meme.

You can also buy the book for $41.99 NZ ($27.89 US) at this website, should you choose to do so.
