On this week’s show, Pyra and her stuffy sinuses mock some random news stories involving braindead journalists and campus crazies. Plus: a Libyan criminal adopts the British passtime of alcoholism and thus is allowed to stay in the UK; some notes about how a Mirena IUD insertion sucks but chocolate covered almonds have the mystical power to make everything better; 420 hits Vancouver’s ERs & Pyra rants re: weed vs. booze; DJ Ashba says GNR is merely on hiatus; changes to eBay’s home page make Pyra have to put in more effort to piss away her money on rock memorabilia crapola; and sadly, a hilarious story about a woman vet fucking a walrus turns out to be fake.
Also, this week’s dumb ass Tweets, a recap of Pyra’s latest open mic set, and more.
UPDATE: After recording this podcast, Pyra’s eBay feed seems to have returned. Not likely that her complaints did anything, so it must have been a temporary glitch. Oh well. Fast forward through that section.
Again from the jerry-rigged Pro Tools set up in Pyra’s room – now with segment intros and stuff! – this week’s show has Pyra commenting on today’s federal budget in Canada and her “very expensive” prescription, wondering what blind dudes wank to, and blathering about singers who insist their name must be in the band name.
Also: Kirk Hammett loses 250 new Metallica riffs, Guns N Roses’ former manager thinks she can fix the Axl/Slash feud, Alicia Tobin’s Come Draw With Me, stupid Twitter hashtag posts, Adam Carolla swag, and some dude asks “what is a ‘real man’?” — butthurt snark or sincere inquiry?
Once again from the jerry-rigged Pro Tools station in Pyra’s bedroom, this week’s show has Pyra getting offered a rubber leaving a comedy open mic, ranting about some dumb ass “university” bans the Vagina Monologues for not including transsexuals, getting a brilliant insight as to why MTV and MuchMusic stopped playing music programming, and bitching about some self-righteous douchebag on her Facebook trying to tell her what to think. Side notes about: Paul Ryan has a nice ass for a politician, bathroom graffiti, & dude names turned into chick names like Courtney, Stacy, & Traci.
Also, Skid Row has a new singer and Pyra has a new Alzheimer’s joke, updates on boring school shit, and VeinViewer: what junkies have been dreaming about for decades is finally here!
And Pyra reads some of her favorites of the dumb tweets she made this week.
Live from the jerry-rigged ProTools set up in Pyra’s bedroom at Castle Draculea, this week’s super-extended show has Pyra ranting about some dude sending her a semi-nude pic, psycho activist losers with nothing better to do with their lives than shit on people’s livelihoods that have nothing to do with them, douchebags who want to live downtown to be cool without any of the noise or activity of living downtown, and City Hall.
She also tells us about the crazy vegan feminist who sees a connection between dairy and rape, muses about “junkie face”, reports on Steven Adler’s new hobby, and jokes about fat chicks blaming the patriarchy before dropping a [heavily edited] rant about the imminent end of her radio show, The Vampire’s Ball, at the end of April and what sort of more productive and rewarding things she plans to spend those 8 hours a week doing instead.
Also, some Twitter highlights about tombstones and exes.
This week Pyra tells the story of a couple of her old friends powdering their noses, gives an extended blathering about how to tell if an autograph is real or not [including a tangent on the one that got away: a note on eBay Pyra lost in the last split second of the auction, but she’s not bitter. Really.], and laments rock dudes getting hip replacements.
Oh, and she also tells a couple rape jokes and an Alzheimer’s joke or two before reciting a few of the dumb Tweets she made this week.
