In which Alan & Antonio deal with
strong cellular deficiency

And they talk aimlessly about connection (quite rightly) and other high-level stuff.

[crayon-5dca6a1da43e0842291467/]

But I love these conversations a little more every time, because it’s nice to talk tech (and other stuff) with Alan. And please listen through the end since he has got a special surprise with the outro.

So this episode seems a weird radio program from the 70’s, with some joker at some place having fun of listeners.

The worst podcast ever.

How can I not worry, Antonio?

Charting our frequency? Seems to be increasing.

[What are we talking about?]

The battery. Welcome back. OMG. Talking disruptions.

And I keep forgetting the English language.

Radio… photography…

And Fleabag??

I almost watch no tv.

What?

 

I Am Mine! Says Lucy Van Pelt

Then there’s Lucy. Of course the broken connections means Alan thinks I’m talking about the other Lucy from I Love Lucy. But no, at the time I didn’t know nothin’ about this Lucy #2. For me the one and only is the One From The Peanuts, a memory from my adolescence.

And talking about comics: You want the Italians? Diabolik, Satanik, Alan Ford, Jacovitti…

Satanik. Il fumetto dell’orrore. From Amazon.

Yes, Satanik was drawn by the very Max Bunker (Luciano Secchi) of Alan Ford and written by Magnus (Roberto Raviola).

Last, there is Jacovitti, a genius telling Western-style stories, with dumb cigarette-smoking horses, pencils, salami-on-foot and worms on the ground.

I learn that Alan looks at his browser’s cookies (to check privacy etc.)

Usage of facebook. Usefullness? I find myself saying:

No other medium to contact far-away friends besides calling them FTW??

Alan Tweets In ALL CAPS:

Then, there’s Terry Greene‘s podcast Gettin’ Air from VoiceEd.ca, which I (Antonio) will be soon part of, in the company of Terry and other much admired folks.

?

Not bad for a broken episode

And that’s all, folks.
