Episode 23: A Toppie Family Secret?

January 24, 2010

This episode of the Smellcast covers a lot of ground.

Toppie talks about doing a project for his Dad.  Then he jibber jabbers about going downtown to get high speed internet access.  It’s about time Toppie.  Welcome to the twenty first century. He also has a new flash drive storage unit thingy that seems to excite him.

Also, a brief listen to a podcast called Ding Da Bell that Toppie dearly loves.  It really cracks him up big time.  Ding and the Bell are so sweet and lovable. You can find them over at and also on Itunes.

Listen as Toppie fiddles with his new flash drive.  Riveting stuff.  No, really.

Toppie’s new computer is acting up.  Toppie fears it will never really work right. This leads him to once again extole the virtues of his old, now defunct Dell computer.

Toppie reveals tantilizing evidence of a deep dark family secret — were Toppie’s grandparents ever really married???   There’s some obscure document signed by some strangers that a marriage was apparently performed, but, as we just realized, no wedding photos!!  Mysterious!

Talk to your parents!  Talk to your grandparents and ask them questions about thier life before they’re gone.  You will be glad you did.

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.
