The final episode of Barely Domesticated’s first season! Showhost Jack Matirko is going on hiatus, and the Season 2 will begin sometime in May. Even podcasters need a break! In this episode are featured clips from Adam – @Ophan13, Nick – @nicksabot, Steve – @UZH77, Rusty – currently not on the Web like us internet monkeys, Dave – @vistachiri, Andy – @LaughPurgatory, Steve Sumner – @OpHuMod, and myself, @Troythulu. To contact Jack, use his Twitter account, @LEDFlashing or his email, given in the episode to avoid spawning spammy eldritch horrors from Beyond Space and Time™.
Show host Jack Matirko and I continue our talk from ep. 18, and once again I manage avoid sounding like a complete fool. We speculate on the necessity of eventually colonizing space, a little bit on Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor, what a human/computer Singularity might mean to us monkeys, and perhaps monkey-cats as well (that includes you, Mister Eccles!). Might not be so good for cats, bad enough for us, but then it could also be glorious if things turn out well.
If you’re new to the show and like it, you can help out by picking up this, whether you’re an alumnus of Miskatonic University, a follower of the Great Old Ones, or just happen to like yoga manual parodies, this book is good.
In this episode, showhost Jack Matirko and I have a terrific discussion of football for those of us who don’t care much for football, talk a wee bit about what’s new and cool in astronautics, like the recent privatized space shuttle and exchange our musings on projected manned Mars missions… Oh, yeah, we also talk about a map posted by Neil deGrasse Tyson on the highest-paid public employees, and it’s not pretty!
…and all the while, Jack’s superior technical skills help mitigate my profound conversational awkwardness in spades! ;-)
Also, do check out Jack and Nick’s new ebook on kindle: The Miskatonic University Beginner’s Guide to Old Ones’ Yoga…
It’s eldritch, it’s geeky, it’s getting relaxed, fit & in tune to the universe with H.P. Lovecraft’s Great Old Ones! Get it! It’s cheap, it’s parody, and it’ll help support the show! Great Unholy tentacles of Mighty Cthulhu, what’s not a better way to work out and de-stress after all those hazardous, sanity-blasting summoning rituals in lonely places on unhallowed nights?

This last year has been trying for all of us, but there’s a bright spot in the clouds. Fellow blogger and friend Kate Campbell has three friends to help get her through the day: Mister Eccles’ friend Jigglypuff, with her Guinea pig pals May Gibbs and Beatrix Potter. As well as helping out around the house and ‘assisting’ in Kate’s online activity, as I suspect Mr. Eccles may do with mine (looks back to glare suspiciously at Mr. Eccles…), the girls like to play games, though my mere monkey intellect fails to grasp the intricacies of such subtle sport. What plans might the girls be up to at this hour? Taking over the world, perhaps? The photo collage below and other images are hosted here: http://muzy.com/l/6fv2d49l. I’ll let Kate put things in her own words:
Jigglypuff is a calico (which we call tortoiseshell here in Australia. She was originally a country cat, but now she is semi-rural/not-quite-city cat. She is 12 years old. She is named after the Pokemon of the same name. May Gibbs is the chocolate brown guinea pig and Beatrix Potter is the tortoiseshell one. They are both short-haired and they are both 1 year old. They love eating a variety of fruit and vegetables every day. They were named after two of my favourite children’s writers.
They are all skeptics, except they believe in unicorns.
Thanks for guesting us.
Love Kate & the girls
