My ongoing love affair with the unknown has been bolstered once again by the Mysterious Universe podcast.
Season 2 has been a refreshing mix of the new and the old, with Benjamin Grundy returning with a new co-host, Aaron Wright.
I have been a listener since the early days of Season 1, and I’m super excited that they have again released the back catalog, this time on 8GB brushed metal USB drives.
The podcast that has been held so highly in my heart as the best podcast ever made, Mysterious Universe, has returned after a long hiatus.
There was some speculation about the return, when the website changed to show that things were ramping up, and now we’re finally being treated with brand new episodes.
So how does the new “season” of Mysterious Universe stack up to the classic?
It’s Friday night, and I thought I would do a quick review of this week’s Worthless Genius articles, as well as some other things that piqued my interest. Sit back and prepare for a link fest…that sounds dirty. Continue reading
Today I’m announcing another brain child of mine: Worthless Blab. Worthless Blab is a short-form blog about all the little things I want to rant about.
I feel like I should keep this main Worthless Genius site pure and good, and not muddy it with all of the little opinions I have. Here on this blog, I tend to write 1000+ word posts about all kinds of topics, but there’s 5 short topics for every 1 that I write here.
Now, I’ll be able to blabber on, and not have to clutter up this shining example of blogitude.
So, go visit Worthless Blab and listen to my incessant ranting.
Reader of Worthless Genius “sr71a” pointed out in the comments of the Requiem For A Podcast article that the Mysterious Universe site is showing new signs of life, with the tantalizing words “Undocking soon in 2009…”:
Entering the site presents you with a screen that allows you to sign up for updates when they are available:
No Longer in "Podcast Hibernation"
Needless to say, I am super excited about this development, but there are a few questions that I have:
- Will Benjamin Grundy be at the helm once again?
- Will the quality be on par with what was done before?
- Have I grown out of the content of this podcast?
I’d have to say a resounding NO to that last one. If you were a fan of this wonderful podcast, head on over and sign up for the updates. I know I will be happily awaiting the return!
Wow, been a great few days so far in this 60 Days, 60(+) Posts initiative. Here is the second comic in the Darwin Man series, and I hope you like it:

What is up with this Hollywood? You seriously should listen to Jim. There has been a flood of terrible ideas and remakes of movies not more than 30 years old lately. Do you really think I’m going to pay $10 for a ticket to go see Predator – Not A Sequel?
Way to rape the childhood of your core audience there, Hollywood:
Well, I guess they’ll never learn. Also, fuck you IMDB for having stuff behind a pay wall on a site that essentially should just be a wiki.
Because of these economic times, I’ve moved my sites to a new server. One by one, they will all come back online, so until that happens, there may be some flakiness.
There is a lot of discord on the net about Godaddy’s Shared Hosting service, and their inability to process permalink structure in WordPress, and I’m definitely not out of the woods with that in mind.
Things will return to normal shortly, and I can get some more content up here, especially the long awaited Episode 4 of the Worthless Genius Podcast.
Thanks for sticking around.
I had originally planned on re-recording this, but time dictated me no grace. A more well-rounded episode will be available for next week.
Episode 3 of the Worthless Genius Podcast brings us back to the format that premiered in Episode 2. We have two short news article discussions, and a Site to See. Classes start today for me, so this week’s release schedule may be a little tight. I would like to get into a 10 minute show every Monday, Wednesday and Friday if possible, but we’ll see what time is like. Here’s what we covered today:
