Geeks&Beats Episode 57: Show Notes, Live from Singapore

My dog is very, very angry at me.  I’ve been travelling almost every week since the beginning of April so any sign of suitcases in the hallway drives her batshit.  Reports from back home say that she’s most upset with my presence here in Singapore for the Music Matters conference. Hang on, sweetie.  I’ll be home Sunday.

Excuse my appearances on this episode of Geek&Beats.  I arrived at the hotel after a 24 hour flight, grabbed four hours of over-the-counter-sleep-aid-induced sleep and then struggled to answer Michael’s Skype call at 8am Monday Singapore time, which was 8pm Sunday his time.

Just wait until next Sunday when I go into the podcast 90 minutes after flying 24 hours the other way.

Maybe the dog has a point.  I need to stay home.

Then again, the King of Malaysia is staying at this hotel on an official visit to Singapore. That meant that the room I reserved was unavailable as most everything was taken up by his entourage. So they upgraded me to a suite.  Damn.

The ugly truth about outlet stores might break your heart.  What this has to do with “geeks” and “beats,” I have no idea.  Ask Michael

You do visit the Geeks&Beats website, yes?  If not, you should.  And if you don’t subscribe to this podcast through iTunes, you’re a bad, bad person and probably going to Hell.
