EGC Clambake for December 15, 2006

Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for December 15, 2006.

I play a holiday song from Jill Sobule; I talk about the War on XMas; I mention Jon Udell’s new job; I play a goofy math song by the Klein Four Group and call it a day.

    Good show! I was hoping the Jill Sobule song was gonna be “Jesus was a Dreidel Spinner”, and I was not disappointed. Maybe it’s supposed to offend Christians, but the song’s words are true, according to my reading of the Bible.

    Where do I apply for a partial refund on my math degree? I didn’t get nearly enough of the Klein Four song lyrics. Had it had some accompanying keyboards, and they’d worked in some reference to the “Peano Postulates”, I’d still be rolling on the floor.

    Merry Christmas!

    And why the shift in reference from Hipster PAA back to Hipster PDA?

    I rather liked the PAA, and I’ve been referring to it that way for months now.

    “I don’t have any brand loyalty to anyone’s imaginary friends” – this could be the most quotable thing you’ve said since I’ve listened to the show…

    Thanks for the mention of the Friends In Tech Holiday production. The project has been posted to: ( There is also a link to last year’s project on the same page.

    Great show … I have to echo your comments on John Udell. Great guy.

    So can we expect Friend’s of Jon’s Evil Dreidel Chronicles for chanukah next year?

    Ken, I bought into Merlin’s acronym – The Hipster PDA (Parietal Disgorgement Aid). I got tired of being a contrarian on it. Usually I’m willing to be a contrarian to my last breath, but this time I just gave up.

    Eddie, thanks. I adapted that from a quote I heard attributed to Yassir Arafat, about how religious conflicts are who has the biggest imaginary friend.

    Steve, thanks. I’ll check it out.

    Mark, I can’t tell you what a good XMas gift it would be to hear that someone had started the Evil Dreidel Chronicles!
