Geeks and Beats: New Year’s Day Edition, 2014

Did Michael and I go out last night to ring in the new year?  Absolutely not.  Why?  This poster pretty much sums up our attitude to the fake enforced (and ultimately disappointing) thing that is New Year’s Eve.



I’m not sure what Michael did last night, but I sat at home with a bottle or Armagnac and a James Bond marathon on TV.  I think I was asleep by 10:15.  This also explains why I’ve forgotten what episode number we’re at.

Anyway, here are your show notes.

Selfie, FOMO, Twerking:  words that we’ll have to deal with from now on.

As always, you can download or stream the show from the Master Web Site.  Alternatively, you can just subscribe through iTunes.
