Under My Skin Podcast: Episode #31

This week’s show is (almost) all about Pyra’s trek to IKEA with her father to fetch a giant red wardrobe. Then Pyra half-builds it, half-watches her father build the damn thing.

Side notes on her father’s reaction to Pyra’s HGTV efforts in the dining room at Castle Draculea; how to say her name; appealing to her dad’s Cheap Immigrant Parent side; the weird stuff her dad has kicking around his office; and the all important cinnamon buns at the end of IKEA.


Under My Skin Podcast: Episode #30

This week’s show kicks off with a mega-rant about eBay counterfeits [both the bootlegged home-burnt CD-Rs she received this week and a previous incident of a fake autographed photo].

Includes a side note on how to recognize a legit autograph, or at least a forgery done with a real Sharpie.

We also get a recap of Pyra’s last La Fontana stand up set, including jokes about Valentine’s Day and guitars, then Pyra chats about the Crystal Pistol show on Saturday and catching up with friends [yes, she actually does have some!].

The show wraps up with Pyra getting all HGTV on the dining room in Castle Draculea since her change-ophobic father is out of town and can’t stop her.


Under My Skin Podcast: Episode #29

This week, Pyra’s dad has gone to visit family back East and Pyra goes to watch the Massacre improv tournament.

We also get updates on Pyra’s eBay habits, videos for maQLu, a month’s worth of meditation, and the workplace fitness challenge. Also, Pyra ponders the mysteries of shorter walking routes that feel really long and chats about modifying yoga nidra intentions for more useful ends.

She then launches into a long rambling attempt to answer her friend’s question about why college radio hipsters seem to favor shitty music so much, with side notes on Nickelback, turning on bands who become popular, laziness and ambition, and the lack of honest feedback or willingness to hear it.


Under My Skin Podcast: Episode #28

This week Pyra has some new video stuff updates, then gets into bitching and moaning and whining about losing out on an eBay auction for a rare Izzy Stradlin CD. Fingers crossed to win 3 other auctions for more of the same.

After that, Pyra riffs on the Greg Gutfield/Marilyn Manson & fans Twitter tussle and mocks how Marilyn Manson has become the Great White Whale and how he should stick to fighting his cholesterol these days.

She also talks about guitar dudes as the male equivalent to beauty queens, inane chatter from bimbos in class, and gives an update on the work wellness challenge and speculates about some of the highly implausible step counts going around.

Side ramblings on obsessed ugly NIN fan girls, a ditz unfriends Pyra when Pyra calls her on her bullshit.
