I'm Still Demented...

I'm happy to announce my return to radio with a new radio show called "Still Demented." This show pays homage to Dr. Demento, (but not close enough to be sued...). We (my co-host is Steve Grosz) play fun novelty music, stand-up comedy and just have a great time.

We air each Sunday at 8am and again 8pm. You can listen live in the Phoenix metropolitan area on 88.7 FM. We stream online at  We also will have each episode available as a podcast; look for it on iTunes.

Come on, listen along and be demented with me!

Let's Do Lunch... with My New Podcast...

I've been a busy boy lately. I've been continuing my efforts on as a tech review site. I've been entertaining out-of-town in-laws for the last month. And I've been renewing my efforts to get my IT business, Bodine Tech, off the ground.

But, while doing all of that, I've also been producing my own podcast.

Let's Do Lunch is a podcast with a friend of mine from high school, Jon K., that I recently reconnected with. We always have fun and off-the-wall conversations. I decided it would be fun to meet with him every 2 weeks over lunch and let the rest of the world join in our good times.

Let's Do Lunch is the length of a typical lunch hour minus travel, so about 40-50 minutes. It's available on all the standard platforms as well. The links to all of the various sources is below. Next time you are eating lunch by yourself, or doing house work, or just want some company, give us a listen!

Sea World, 2016...

Good times... but I did learn a lesson. Don't show "Blackfish" to your spouse the night before you go to Sea World, it will ruin her day...

Watching Star Wars Episode 1 with my 5-year-old...

So, to get ready for the new Star Wars, I'm re-watching the first 6. My 5-year-old, Maia, decided to watch it with me. Half the fun has been her reaction to it all.

This is just the first fifteen minutes of Episode 1:

  • The first time the evil Sith Master is shown: "Is that Jesus?"
  • When the battle droids are landing on Naboo: "Why are they going there? Oh, I know, they are having a parade!"
  • When she first sees Jar-Jar Binks: "Who is that horse-thingy? Is that a girl?"
  • When the Jedi follow Jar-Jar to his underwater home: "I think this may be a bit too scary for kids like me."

This is going to be an interesting marathon...

Family Superlatives....

Out of the blue the other day, Benji says to me, "Dad, I'm stupendous."

"Really? You are? How do you know?"

"I just am," he replies matter-of-factly.

"Ok," I pursue, "so if you are stupendous, what am I?"

"Hm," he thinks for a second. "You are just normal."

"Oh, so what about Maia? Is she stupendous, too."

"No," he declares with authority. "She is fantastic."

"I see. So you are stupendous, Maia is fantastic and I am 'just normal'."


"What about Mommy? What is she?"

For this one he takes a long time to consider his options. "She is... stinky balls!"

Honestly, I have no idea where he gets this stuff, but just for the sake of those who are keeping track, here's the breakdown:

Benji = stupendous
Maia = fantastic
Dad = just normal
Mom = stinky balls
