  1. “We give a heads up when cuming in someone’s mouth, why not trigger warnings?”

    I wasn’t drinking milk but still I think milk came out of my nose when I heard that.

    I have heard people complain about the use of the words lame, dumb, crazy, and other words that have slipped into common usage. I try to remember these things, but sometimes I forget. I think exploring language is important, but sometimes we have to understand most of the time people don’t mean to be hurtful. A few years ago I discovered that the word jipped, or jip, as in “this bag is only half full, what a jip” is really spelled gyp, and meant to be shortened for gypsy (Roma). So it’s been a trial to try to remember this and stop using the word, but it’s hard when you didn’t realize the history for over 30 years. Do I think dumb is really a slur, I think it was once, and unless I am using it against a person with developmental disabilities it should be ok, but I can imagine that using against a person with developmental disabilities would be very hurtful from their side. Language is tricky, seriously.

    As I type this you just said in my ears that you don’t have a facebook presence and it makes me laugh, because normally I don’t do feedback because I would need to be on a computer and find your site, find the post, and then comment. Where as many other podcasts have groups (much better than pages for interaction IMO) and when I have a comment I leave it in the group for the podcaster and the other listeners, much like we did in Dog Days.

    Meatloaf now makes the case for euthanasia. The only thing good that has come out of that album, for me, is that it led me to look up further stuff from Ellen Foley, which led me to “We Belong To The Night”, which is a great song, and a display of her great voice. I can’t stop listening to it.

    Anyway, Meatloaf’s new album is pure shit. Pure. Painful. Like bad constipation.

    Dave … Thank you so much for sharing that Meatloaf song. I tried hard to find any interest in it, but unfortunately I did not. Again thank you for the podcast and for letting me experience something new in that song. Have a great day. – Steve
