Episode 14 of Upon Further Review!

We’re in a musico-cartoonish-scientific mood with the release of Episode 14 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we thank a few people, and preview our guest reviewer for next week, before moving on to the show proper:  first, we get in touch with our inner rock god with our review of Guitar Center; second, we enter the strange, quirky, and Flash-based world of an athlete with invisible arms and a 70s-era Mexican wrestler with boxing gloves as we review Homestar Runner; and finally, we study the formation of the universe with our review of the meaning of li–er, we mean the Absolute Science podcast.  Thanks for listening, and please continue to send us suggestions for things to review, comments to consider, and opinions to appreciate!  (By the way, that strange squeaking sound you may hear in the background in this episode is our dog Lilo attacking her squeaky fish toy.  We’ve given her a good stern talking-to, though, and the fish will not make a return appearance.  :) )  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”) .)

Reviewed in this show:

    Greg, Clea,

    [feel free to delete my test comment. for some reason, can’t get my comments from ep 13 to stick. are they too long? anyway…]

    Thanks, again! GREAT SHOW! My favorite one yet!

    I actually had never heard of Homestar Runner, but I am so glad that I know about it now. It’s a great site! I’m embarassed to admit it, but I listened to the promo part a whole bunch of times b/c it was so funny to me! I’ve also shared the site and your podcast with as many people I could get to listen to me (which was like, maybe, 6, but still… that’s not bad, right?).

    And, though I’m not a musician, I really applaud Guitar Center and a few other stores like it (there’s one down here in Jax, FL called “George’s Music” that has the same staffing and service mentality). Customer service and knowledgeable staff, especially in retail, is so sparse today, and it’s nice to see that there are some places out there who understand the value good service brings. Clea’s comment about Greg wanting to “run in and just get one thing” and then having to go in after him is very close to my wife’s heart, as there are several stores (Best Buy/Circuit City, among others) where we have the same dynamic.

    Keep ’em coming! Can’t get enough!

    See you on 15!

    – Chris
