sc 254 The Puppy Adventure

February 8, 2012

Hi folks.  The new Smellcast feed seems to be up on Itunes now.  Please re-subscribe!  As for this blog, I am having difficulty determining a way to let you all hear the latest episode of the smellcast on your computer, right now, with just a click.  Libsyn just isn’t making it easy for me to know how to do this.  Instead, please to use the link at the end of this entry to DIRECT DOWNLOAD the episode to your computer.  At least THAT is working.

Anyway… on with the show…

The story of how Toppie triumphantly (mostly) drove his mother to Carmel NY to pick up the new family puppy dog!

sc 253 You Can Really Taste The Difference!

February 4, 2012

So…  I’ve decided to go with Libsyn as my podcast’s host provider.  I know… real original solution, huh?  Well.  I’ll do a podcast about my decision down the road.  Not all the links or itunes stuff is in place yet.  But below you can find a link for a direct download.  I’m also attempting to use Feedburner — and I’ve probably totally screwed that up.  Anyone out there use Feedburner?  I could use some advice…  write me, okay?

Anyways… on with the show.

Among the topics Toppie blathers about today is his new job assignment at work, his latest car woes, a parental update, some fun listener mail and finally the biggest news of all — tomorrow Toppie and his mother will travel to the far reaches of New York State to retrieve the family’s NEW PUPPY DOG!

sc 163 “An Evening with My Father.”

April 16, 2011

Sometime back in very late 2009 Toppie started to record his father as he sat at the kitchen table while Toppie cooked dinner.  Over the course of a few months about 40 evenings of his father talking about news, family stories, and what was going on in his life at the time were recorded.  This is just one of those recordings… all captured the same evening of January 3, 2010.

Meet Toppie’s dad as he talks about the rewiring of his 1950’s MG; gay marriage and gay adoption; unusual car paint jobs, and a new bread machine he got for Toppie’s mother.  You can hear Toppie’s Mother in the background as she tries to explain a story about a dog, and a psychic test the whole family once participated in.

Of particular interest to Smellcast listeners is Toppie’s father’s speculation as to how to move a commemorative stone — the same stone that is featured in the Smellcast, episode 108.  You might want to check into the archives and look it up.  It’s a little story Toppie called “My Father’s Bro’mance.”

Of today’s episode, Toppie says he thinks the recording perfectly captures his father’s unique personality.

sc 112 The Angry Energy.

September 17, 2010

A bad evening with the parental units causes Toppie to ponder just why he becomes so agitated sometimes — almost as if he is agitated by a spouse — something he hasn’t had in over ten years.  A spouse, that is.

sc SUPER SPECIAL Non-Special!

March 28, 2010

That’s right!  Another freakin’ special (only not really).

Toppie takes his parents out to dinner to a gay-owned 1920 Colonial Greek revival Inn for their 50th Anniversary.  What starts out as a miserable evening turns to more congenial conversation and so-so (but very expensive) food.
