It’s Episode no.20 of Barely Domesticated!


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.

It’s Episode no.18 of Barely Domesticated — Missions into the Unknown


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?

Elizabeth Loftus: The fiction of memory


Even our clearest memories can be complete fiction, even the best, sanest and smartest of us are subject to memory fallacies. Elizabeth Loftus talks on how the model of memory as a faithful recording of events is severely misguided.
