So I finally got off my ass...

..and listened to an IMAO Podcast. I realize that this is like the twelfth one they've done, but I was busy during the other eleven. Eric's weekly get-together was last night, so I had nothing better to do with my insomnia than download the stupid thing and listen to it.

I ws surprised that the cussed thing was 32 minutes and eleven seconds in length. Sure, it's put together by eleventy-something people, but who knew that you could spew drivel for that long? Other than the fact that Harvey, Frank , and Sarah sound exactly like they do in real life (Why the hell can't you Photoshop audio files?), I've got a really big bone to pick with this Podcast. (Please note the Elitist name-dropping)

Since the stupid thing comes with no visual aids, I decided that I would fire up my WinAmp Visualisation in order to entertain myself while they were blathering along. "How'd that work out?" Not. Too. Good. Squiggly lines that have a squiggly factor induced by the intonation of the sounds emanated, are not very entertaining when you are listening to about a hojillian different people talk into computer microphones for minutes (That's right. Minutes.) on end. I killed the "Viz". (That's more Elitist talk. I don't expect you philistines to understand.)

What to do? What to do? I know! Solitaire. The quintessential PC game. I fired up the game and ensured that it was in "Casino Mode" and "Scored" so I could rate my progress in a "real dollar" figure. I allow that if I'm gonna play a game, it might as well be something that coould make me loads of cash and drive Nubile pretties to hang off my arm in hopes of getting some of that green. Normally I score in the multiple of hundreds of dollars to the black, but this night, I was cleaned out. I currently owe this game the equivalent of the GDP of Paraguay... and it's all IMAO's fault.

When Bill Gates comes to collect his money, (Trust me. The Vig is steep.) Then I'll just send him on your way. Just collect a single buck from all who are in your 'Cast, and I'm in the clear.

Thanks folks, I had a good chuckle or two.

Actually, it was a lot more fun than I expected it to be. Whoever does the production does a really good job, Frank sounds warlike, Harvey sounds like a Perv, and you (Of Course) sound Pretty! I enjoyed it quite a bit, despite my sarcasm.

Careful, Johnny-Oh, or she ain't ever going to marry you!

If they didn't take so damned long to download (dial up), I'd listen to them a bit more. They really aren't bad at all... and Sarahk's voice is pretty sexy! ;)
