I love these podcasts, Jord. There is something about your delivery that reminds me of Jean Shepherd on WOR radio in the 1960s from New York (the same guy who did A Christmas Story). Here's a sample of the way he did his show -- https://archive.org/details/JeanShepherd1964pt2
I should be sculpting....
Mom and Dad are your only two fans????? WTF are you talking about?! You have thousands of fans, and I suppose tens of thousands of --are they called "squibs?"
Re Hendrix, as far as I know, the modus operandi of his death was never definitively determined. Always a mystery.....
Don't know why you think Mom and I don't dig Jim Hendrix. He did the Star Bangled Banner at Woodstock in 1969, after the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967. EVERYBODY who was over 12 years old in those days was more or less familiar with both of these events and the musicians who performed at them. I suppose next you're going to say we knew nothing about Janis Joplin.... and I am willing to admit that The Rose (Bette Midler) is a song I still enjoy listening to every few months....
I have no recollection of the hair-combing event, but I completely trust your memory on this. My belated apologies....
Love the Blogg Jordu!! it's good enjoying of yourself speaking about things.
Loved the vegetarian part, hahaha that is so true, vegetarians can't eat anywhere, I say that as vegetarian myself.
Looking forward for the third part.
Love your theme song! Yes, Hendrix choked on his own vomit! (Aspirated)
really enjoying these

I have really been enjoying these!! It is so nice to see that Nerdcast has returned, and now to have these audio blogs. It is very interesting to hear your perspective on things, and also to hear some of your hilarious stories!!
Thanks a lot.
Started listening to your podcasts, hilarious stuff! "Please sir, I want some more"
Hey Jordu, I heard that Hendrix died after drinking pints of wine. Not sure if that's a fact. Cheers.
Love your work Jordu. Very inspiring!
I’m a huge Jimi Hendrix fan. Hendrix’ death has always been documented as suffocation of his vomit due to a wine and sleeping pill mix. The events leading to and the climate in Hendrix’ life and career at the time calls for speculation and leads to conspiracy theories. Most biography texts and documentaries state the usual as he accidentally killed himself. One recent documentary-“The Last 24 Hours”- talks about the event some more. Their theory is Jimi was about to fire his manager Michael Jefferies, a shady kind of character, had ties with european mafia types, embezzling Hendrx’ money, etc. This firing was supposed to happen the next day. Also the ambulance medics did not report some details-like how Jimi was soaked in wine, not vomit. The theory is that Michael Jefferies sent some thugs to Jimi’s girlfriend's flat, held him down and forced sleeping pills and wine down his throat. I’ve read most text’s and viewed several documentaries about Hendrix that this theory is very plausible. But the fact remains-Jimi is dead so wtf can you do?
Oh Man. Your voices of your teachers are too funny Lol! There's something relieving about making retarded voices of people that are annoying to you right? Nothing more satisfying hehehe...
Holy crap that 50's intro cracked me the hell up...I'm laughing in my office like an idiot. That's definitely one of the highlights of these blogs. Now I'm hooked. Gotta get my buddies to listen to these. Thanks, man!
