06 Jul 05John Moltz on Your Mac Life

Turns out that Shawn King guy has an Internet radio show.

Who knew?

Anyway, in a sign of blatant harrassment, he called Crazy Apple Rumors Site editor-in-chief John Moltz during tonight’s show.

We think that’s how Shawn makes money – by having enough people on the show that feel willing to pay $3.95 to download the track from Audible.com to hear themselves interviewed. Because, you know, you can’t listen to yourself while you’re on a radio show.






That kind of thing.

Anyway, we highly encourage you to download tonight’s show, listen to it, and then email Shawn and tell him in no uncertain terms why he OWES you a free podcast every week.

    Darn dial-up. Can’t post and download podcasts at the same time.

    And when is Moltz gonna get on the bandwagon (bandwidthwagon?) and start his own podcasts? And I don’t mean those sunflower seed shells he spits all over the CARS compound, either.

    You, like everyone else, owes me anything I want for free. Especially podcasts. And an iPod to listen to them on. And a PowerMac to connect it to. And a T1-class internet connection to download them from.

    And free movie tickets. And a new car. What was that? Oh, sorry, I was interrupted. I’m told I need _two_ new cars.

    Thank you, and if there’s anything I can ever do for you, remember that you me free stuff and should do whatever I can do yourself. Goodnight.

    Go to 1:16:25 on the stream to hear where they call Moltz. Lol.

  14. OverclockedLemon says:

    Heh… Moltz just pulled a fast one on the rest of the staff. He says he’s the only one there! Fight the man, Howard!

    Capitalist pig dogs!!!

    …Still $3.95 is a lot less than the TWENTY DOLLARS FIFTY I paid to read your MacWorld… “column”

    Shawn’s site has an article ‘Shooting fireworks with a digital camera’.

    Wouldn’t a gun be better?

    A gun is Steve Jobs’ way of saying “He’s!” “A!” “Fam!” “Ly!” “GUYYYYYYYY!!”

    With no iPod, how can I use this “podcast” you speak of?

    I was planning to get an iPod “before it was cool,” but it’s too late for that now.

    I can’t be one of the pack–I must wander, free, like a lonely tumbleweed, at least until everybody’s doing it.

    One is the loneliest number, except for maybe zero.

  19. Streetrabbit says:

    Ace Deuce don’t be a podcast outcast. Download the podcast, it’s only an mp3 or aac file, then take that file to your nearest recording studio. They’ll be happy to press this onto 78rpm shellac for you.

    You can play this on any old gramophone like the 1910 Symphony Victory.

    Then sit back and bask in your coolness….and oneness.

    Get the hell off my case dammit!!!!

  22. Ace Deuce says:

    Great suggestion, Streetrabbit. By the way, do gramophones in Australia spin clockwise or anticlockwise?

    And if a dogcow moofs, how does a capitalist pigdog express itself?

    Who’re you callin’ a commie, ficko? I’m just a modern slashdot-posting online typical down-home file-sharin’ geek!

    “And when is Moltz gonna get on the bandwagon (bandwidthwagon?) and start his own podcasts?”

    You should listen to last night’s show. While Moltz is a *great* writer, he has a voice like fingernails on a blackboard.

    You *really* don’t want to listen to him.

    Moltz sounds less Canadian than I expected.


    Of course he’s a Canuck.

    1. He’s obsessed with Schiller and hockey.

    2. Shawn King has his phone number (they stick together)

    3. He says he’s from Connecticut, apparently not realizing that everyone who actually was born in Connecticut claims to be from somewhere more interesting.

    May I respectfully suggest that there is a very slight typographical error in Shawn King’s 10:42 posting. It is normally spelt *grate*.

  28. Red Lantern, Dead Battery says:

    Canadian?!!! At least he’s not a Newfie, right?


    oh no not that dear merciful heavens…..

  29. Streetrabbit says:

    I was dissapointed with the voice too, I expected him to sound more like a Goa’uld from Stargate. But still, squeaky voice or not, he kicked some serious YML butt.

    Gramophones go anti-clockwise of course, everything here does, the things that go around anyway. Makes it easy to listen to all those Black Sabbath anarchy messages and we were first to know Paul McCartney was dead.

    Up and down things go down and up.

    Capitalist Pigdogs say Oiff!

    Does this mean the “Fantasy Date” is off? SHIT!!!!!!!

  31. Huck says:

    I didn’t think Moltz’s voice was too bad. I want him to do at least one podcast in a newscaster’s voice. That would be “grate”.

    Do it dammit! I am entitled! You owe me! No, I’m not payin’ for it!
