Episode #19 – Touch Tech, Coregasms and a Comfortable Cocktail

Episode #19 – Touch Tech, Coregasms and a Comfortable Cocktail

We’re back in our element this week and we touch briefly on some new tech that understands you better than you might expect.  We also dip back into the 60’s and 70’s for some classic discussions of some very sexy topics, theorize the existence of the coregasm and settle in for a pineapple upside down cake cocktail that will leave you wanting more.  This week we’re feeling frisky and you just might thank us by the end.  We start by saying “you’re welcome” and end with a fond remembrance or two.  It’s the Charlie Tonic Hour and this week is a very fun show!

    Fun! I appreciate your Beastie Boys discussion! We didn’t get to discuss much last Friday (given our ska-induced delirium), but I was truly taken aback by his sad passing last week. Adam Yauch was not only instrumental in the soundtrack of our Youth, but the B-Boys themselves revolutionized sampling in music (listen to Paul’s Boutique for a primer – you couldn’t make that album by today’s standards – the sampling would have simply been too expensive). The clip you played of “Sure Shot” is interesting, particularly: Yauch references that the disrespect of women has got to end – significant given their early work as drunken frat boys – it’s considered an apology to the fans for their treatment of women. In addition, Yauch was a major figure in the Free Tibet movement (see the Tibetan Freedom concerts). Finally, in his later years he formed Oscilloscope, an independent film production and distribution company that emphasized a DIY ethic in filmmaking. He was so much more than a talented rapper and lyricist. I could go on and on with my B-Boys fangirl-dom… I could probably do a Master’s thesis. His passing was truly sad for me on a personal level.

    I guess it’s not the Midsummer Masquerade now, but the Midnight Masquerade?

    • Ginny says:

      Yeah I caught that when I was listening. The Midnight Masquerade was at the Symposium and we just hadn’t shifted gear. It’s still the Midsummer Masquerade. I knew I would be hearing from you as soon as I realized we’d got it wrong :-)

      • Travis says:

        So long as people buy tickets, you can call it anything you want!

        And for the record, I told Aloysius I’d come to the yard sale BEFORE I listened to this.

  3. Emma Peelout says:

    Loved this show.
    So i listened to the show all the way through, laughing my ass off at you guys referring to my better half as Mr. Peelout. Then he walked by a little later,I wondered if I should let him listen to it knowing he might get pissed. I mean…you know, basically confirming to the world of Charlie Tonic that yes, you’re right, I do INDEED where the pants at Peelout Palace. So I called him over. He listened, and I was waiting for the scowl that said, ‘man I can’t believe I thought they were actually cool the other night’, but he was honestly very PLEASED with himself!
    I love it. The Elusive Mr. Peelout. Maybe I shall open the cage more often :)
