This week Pyra fills us in on the Alonzo Bodden show at Yuk Yuk’s over the weekend (including a report on how awesome the pizza at Yuk Yuk’s is!) and an update on finishing the tracking on the new maQLu album and needing to get started on the mixing.
Then she goes on a tear about the asinine “real names only” policy at Facebook and the week’s issue with cEvin Key of Skinny Puppy getting narc’d on for not using his real name. And now “first world problems!” is the new “STFU!”
Also included are a trip to the gynecologist’s office, where even the 2 year olds in the waiting room are insulted by the kiddie TV programming, and a super important vital update on the state of her current quilting projects.
In this week’s show Pyra relates the memory of a crappy opening act with a bad attitude before going another round about the U2 album, which is still trying to download itself into her queue, which reminds her of a great old National Film Board of Canada cartoon.
She also talks about a hilarious talk on Africa and the aid industry she found on YouTube before talking about her first ballet class in 18 years, leotards and ballet shoes that don’t fit right, and wraps up the show with some vital quilting updates and why the stupid moustache graphic fad is finally dying.
This bonus episode is all about Pyra spewing bile in a 7 point list about that U2 album forcefed onto everyone’s iTunes and why it can rot in Hell.
Side tangents on the myth that “everybody likes U2” is not borne out by RIAA sales statistics, the RIAA’s top selling artists [hint: U2’s not near the top of that list!], music as related to personal core identity, internet security and slippery slopes, Nickelback, why physical music media like CDs and vinyl are awesome, how much her brother hates Van Hagar and post-black album Metallica, which members of Guns N Roses are and are not welcome to personally deliver new music into Pyra’s boudoir, and a certain Mr. Prissy Pants gets upset about Pyra hoping Bono gets ebola.
Bonus fun: after recording this episode, Pyra opened up her iTunes and guess what started to download itself into her library yet AGAIN?
This time around Pyra expounds on the drunk dude hitting on her friend at the final Stiff Valentine show over the weekend and gives a vital update on the old IKEA dressers situation before launching in the saga of her three pin up boy tattoos: from their inception and inspiration through getting sick of having them through the years of procrastinating about getting rid of them through a blow by blow description of the laser tattoo removal process and how the fading process is going.
She also gets into side blurbs about when Nine Inch Nails was only just starting to suck, being loyal to type and what the type is.
And we have some hot sexy quilt talk and the latest installation in the Johnny Thunders eBay poster saga [hint: one of them might be as “M.I.A.” as Johnny’s baby in the old song…]
In this week’s episode, Pyra blathers about feeling tired, buying Johnny Thunders posters etc., her new video series involving a silly music trivia game, getting her upper lip and armpit hair zapped, wondering whether you’re supposed to tip the technicians at a dermatologist’s clinic, and the saga of the eyeball freckle before launching into a rant about “kids these days”.
More specifically: drunk retards on campus, giant stuffed bunny teddy bears, sparkly rewards, crappy arts & crafts, trigger warnings for displays that agree with the activists who insist on the trigger warnings, and how old timey frat house antics were far superior.
She also squawks about annoying TV commercials and the bestest Buckcherry song ever.
