Episode 5 of the Schnauzer Logic Podcast Posted... Let's Talk Oscars®!

Sonovista, My Friends! Episode 5 of the Schnauzer Logic, The Podcast is now on the server and should be showing up in iTunes and your online players very soon!

Another fun show, though I think you can tell we were all just a bit under-the-weather (listen to the coughing and throat clearing going on in the background)... The opening is a 45 second recap of all the Oscar® nominated films... I like the way it came out, but it wasn't what I originally had in mind... i -swear- I spent all week thinking of ideas... mashing dialog together... writing parody... doing a clown-hosted kids version of the Oscars®... but the truth be told, after listening (and watching) the trailers over and over I got so damn depressed, I lost the will to live... thank god Dick Cheney arrived in the nick of time to save the bit!

Anyway, this was our big, first-annual Oscars® show, and we spent a good amount of time going through the nominations for Best Picture, Best Director and the other top awards. We'll have a link to all our picks online in the next few days, and then we'll see how we did (and the winner gets a prize, Parviz!!!)

Parviz also took a moment to say a heart-felt farewell to Television and Film great, Don Knotts, and we talked about the power of 3 in death (Don Knotts, Darren McGavin and Dennis Weaver).

We also talked about gender radio, and my transgender life, and how we're now being streamed as a part of

And Sean wrapped up with his strange news story of the day. Plus we played Win John DeKoven's money with Parviz using -last week's questions- and were heartened to learn there's reason to keep hope alive (I believe the children are our future...) Alan Shepard, Boo Boo Kitty (nee Shepard) and Ben Franklin, and we're there!... You know, I had a teacher in High School who used to let the 'dumb' kids take his physics tests over and over until they passed... us 'smart' kids complained that wasn't fair, and he said, "I don't care how long it takes them to get it... I just want them to get it."... I think -he- was the smart kid!

Finally, this week's update from the Dairy Case is LaLa Yogurt from Mexico! Hola, LaLa... Como esta usted?

And more great music, this time from around the US, with the following musicians checking in:

1. Better Off Dad from Hewitt, Texas, and their song "Lucky"

2. Mark Silverman from San Francisco, CA and his song "My Work Friends"

3. Ghazi also from San Francisco, CA, and his song "When All Is Said"

4. By The Wayside from Tempe, Arizona, and their song "Love Sick Suicide"

and we -almost- got to Nothing Less from Modesto, California... next time, dudes... next time for sure...

And that's all I got! Have a great week... Enjoy the Oscars®... Watch the Independent Spirit Awards (the awards for independent films) this Saturday, March 4th LIVE at 5pm EST, 2pm PST on the IFC channel... And keep those cards and letters coming in (and while you're at it, add us to your friends on MySpace!)

And until next week:

Show Up
Pay Attention
Tell The Truth
And Don't Be Attached To The Outcome
