Eat Fiber and Die – 1987

Ok, I recorded this in my little bedroom studio in 1987 with a Korg DSS-1 sampling synthesizer.  I was an idiot.  There was overwhelming response to this being played on my show (none of it positive, mind you) so I thought I’d post it here for your non-enjoyment.  Drive your significant other crazy with it, pretending to like it.

It’s titled “Eat Fiber and DIE” for no other reason than hipsters were (correctly) extolling the virtues of fiber at the time and I was an ass.  If you can’t understand it, the refrain is “Someone roll me a GREAT BIG ‘SPLEEF’, …

Recipe: Cheesy No Grain Breadsticks

I’m going to create a new category of NSNG recipes as I find and test them.   I tried this one SuperBowl Sunday and even my kids thought it was pretty good.  It ends up with a soft, bread-y interior, with a crisp outside crust (made of cheese).  Dip it in marinara or eat it with NSNG chili, as we did.  I’ll be using this basic recipe for pizza crust in the future.

1 large head of cauliflower
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups mozzarella, shredded, divided into 2 parts
1 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
1-2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp salt

You can use more or …

Female Ejaculation vs Coital Incontinence

Much has been made of a study on female ejaculation in the media and on Twitter and Reddit lately.  The media and the blogosphere have been rife with headlines like: “Scientists Say Female ‘Squirting’ is Just Peeing!”

Unfortunately, once again the bloggers and medical media got it wrong.

Read the original study:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25545022

This study suffers from a severe case of selection bias. Finding that the fluid emission was urine was the only possible outcome of the study given its structure, because they selected only women who already had coital incontinence:

“Seven women, without gynecologic abnormalities and who reported recurrent and …

Recipe: NSNG Smoothies

People have emailed me, asking me for my smoothie “recipes” from the last podcast. I really don’t have any; I mostly improvise like a jazz musician using the following “chord chart” (yecch):

First Principles:

1) Spinach is basically tasteless raw (Kale is vile to me, but some people like it)
2) Almond milk is better than soy milk which is better than cow’s milk (especially if you’re lactose intolerant). Do I have evidence to back that up? Nope! Just my opinion.
3) The taste of fresh carrots is pretty good and can be masked with a single serving of fruit

so:

if you’re grain-free, you start …

Help Some People at the Holidays

Well, it’s that time of year and we have a couple of people we can help if you have an extra $1, $5, $10, or more!

First:

Our pal RexDart has been taking chemotherapy, but his fixed income makes traveling to MD Anderson AND keeping the lights on at home difficult. He also pays child support out of his Social Security check which is less than $1000/month in the first place.

If you’d like to help him out, click the button below. Any amount will help!  This will basically go toward keeping propane in the tank and the lights on….

Why We Know Ebola Still Isn’t Easy to Contract (Commentary)

Just some quick math to set your mind at ease:

If Ebola were EASY to transmit, there would be a MUCH larger burden of cases in the world right now. Let me show you with math.

Let’s be conservative and say this outbreak started January 1st with one patient. Let’s say this person infected 10 other people, who then infected 10 other people, and so on. With an incubation period of 21 days, and assuming that people can’t transmit the disease until they are symptomatic, it’s pretty easy to calculate where we would be if the above were anywhere close to reality.  (Remember, I’m …

RexDart Needs Our Help Again

We have a listener who has been battling terminal bladder cancer since 2011. He’s had to try to continue to work just to keep the lights on despite horrific intractable pain, but hasn’t had a full time job since being laid off in 2012. A few months ago he told me “i’m already $100 away from being homeless. At this point I long for the relief that death will bring.”

He has no family who can help him, and he’s alone, suffering in a cold house trying to live on $700 a month. He finally has an oncologist who …

TomPapa: The Movie

 

“The more biting the satire, the narrower the audience…”, a friend of mine taught me that years ago.  I’m thinking 3 people will get the joke, then I realize, there’s really not a JOKE here, it’s just a movie called “Tampopo” and I got a friend on twitter to turn it into “Tompapa”.  It even has his face.   But now it’s just Juzo Itami’s “Tompapa” but without a joke to make it pop.

So.

Make it FUNNY and email it to me (w e i r d m …
