Stone Ape #105: Three Hundred Bucks [December 19, 2014]

Heron starts the show asking about Tom's childhood friend who came to stay and living alone. Heron is heading out to resume a winter tradition and wants to talk about his memory. Tom explains how buying a meal for a cop leads into masked men on his doorstep. The videos: Lady Stealing Shoes (link) and Package Thief (link). Tom thoroughly recommends nextdoor.com for addressing some of this problem. How can the term culture be used? Crack a book and you might be better on crack. The decade was so two decades ago. Joe the Drummer, Tim Jones and Mike King have some questions for the recording. They explore sexuality in cinema [Editorial note: the US censorship uses the term language to refer to coarse language and not adult concepts in language.] Tom knocks down the popularly referred to porn stats and talks about computation in popular writing versus his experience.  [ MP3 ]

Stone Ape #104: That Pizza is Too Greasy [November 26, 2014]

Heron has been defecting and he wants to analyze it. For those who want to see some classic Single Muslim ads (link) and a Juggalo anthropology documentary (link) is worth a Skype call. Tom has moved to a new level in terms of paying for listeners. Heron wants Liz Swan's conversations excluded from Stone Ape, eventually. Ferguson provides an abstract example of two non-mingling stories. Oh no, not hierarchies. What are the qualities of land that are worth settling? Videoing Tom is a curious thing. Heron returns to the problems of interaction. Tom and Heron discuss Thanksgiving traditions. Heron digresses into work discussions.  [ MP3 ]

Stone Ape #103: High Wattage [Novemeber 21, 2014]

Heron is clean shaven and wants to rap about Liz Swan's participation in the new podcast. Tom has been exploring the new Core mathematics in the US (link). Tom has a job for the Noble Apes to do in the near future. Tom likes interpretive MC Hammer (link). What about the listener feedback? Tom will be have a house guest soon. Joe the Drummer asks about tarot: Heron thinks it is therapy and Tom thinks it is simulation. They digress into Mad magazine providing a blueprint for the past (link) [Editorial note: some of the dates and the details on Mad magazine and William M. Gaines are off, this will be rectified in the feed shortly]. Tom doesn't recommend Constantine's Sword (link) but Heron still thinks military organizational structure has some purpose. Tom floats the idea of dying for the butterfly. Call Tom anytime but let's not discuss hierarchy. Low light depression can be treated very easily. Police are in short supply but what's new.  [ MP3 ]
