Episode 16 The Demon Horned Computer

January 18, 2010

Toppie’s old Dell has finally crapped out!  @#!!*!!  So now he’s working on an old Gateway laptop that was given to him fortuitously as a timely gift by his aunt who’s not really an aunt but rather his mother’s child-hood friend.

One of Toppie’s co-workers — an “all-right joe” — is going to build him a new computer that will house his old hard drive, as well as a new one.  That’s twice the podcasting power, people!

Today, Toppie is busy backing up his podcast files;  he also chitter-chats about how his new recording hobby is stealing his beauty sleep;  curious and snoopy co-workers; flamboyant podcast titles; the podcast as a journal to record day to day life; and finally, what should the Smellcast BE about?

Funny moment: at the very end of this podcast, Toppie appears to just drift off — did he fall asleep?  Toppie says he doesn’t remember doing that but… It sounds like his last words are “away,” or maybe “I’m awake”.  Snicker and Gfaw!!

Bonus Boner: Can you identify what movie is playing in the background?  Write to Toppie at and tell him your guess.
