The Deep End – Episode 6 – 28 minutes going deeper into politics

On this episode of the Deep End, Maqz and T Fab P go all political on you with a look at some of the things happening around the government. There are looks at 3 different senate races for three reasons, Democratic Rep. Joe Sestak , Rand Paul, Libertarian and Blumenthal, the ex-veteran. Each is presenting major problems for their parties and no end of the merriment is in sight. Maqz then gets into the issue of the drone plane attacks in Afghanistan and just what it could mean and the boys spend quite a while examining this issue. Finally on a lighter note, they finish up with a few minutes examining the new Miss America. No, not that way! They are talking about the reactions by the right wing conservatives to the fact that she is a Muslim (yes, even though she was born and raised in Dearborn, Michigan. Some things just never change…

CSA Episode 140 - "Weird, weirder, weirdest..."

On this episode of CSA we begin with a news quiz as T Fab P asks Maqz about bizarre news stories of the week. Then T Fab P turns on the old bullshit detector on a couple of news stories, first a mayoral candidate who turned in rolling papers and a story about Qantas Airlines reusing plastic utensils as a way of going green. Next up is a contrast of action of Gulf State Governors and perhaps a reason why they react the way they do. Then Maqz talks about full body scans that are supposed to be destroyed to protect privacy that are showing up with people trying to get one autographed. Finally Maqz talks about a woman in Britain with holes in her head. ON PURPOSE! T Fab P talks about Boobies! Yes, one weird story after another.

Give us a listen, 140 will make you giggle.

Episode 139 - "A younger voice of reason..."

On this episode of the Countless Screaming Argonauts, the boys, fresh off of their live FutureVaganza, invite Manhattan Man AND his college age daughter, 'becca, in to talk politics, the Supreme Court and the environment. Well we mean the BP oil spill, Obama's nominee and Sarah Palin of "hopey-changey" fame. Its a fun romp, especially with a young voice of reason added into the mix.

Enjoy Episode 139!

CSA The Deep End: Episode 005 Part 2 - "The FutureVaganza Continues..."

For the FutureVaganza Maqz, the Fabulous Penguin and the rest of the CSA crew got together for a live show in a hotel in Binghamton, NY. What are they all doing in a hotel in Binghamton? We'll let you figure that one out. As for this show itself, Part 2 of the FutureVaganza, the talk continued well into the night. Fueled by good beer, great spiedies, and good friends and having been "PUNKED" by the roadies, this train went off the tracks somewhere around midnight. The topics varied from modern technology to modern warfare, from ebook readers to mind readers, from optimism to pessimism. Yes we were wandering the desert like a bunch of outcasts looking for the next abandoned building...Yea, I know this doesn't make too much sense but then again neither did we sometimes that night. What is presented here is a bunch of clips from our discussions that night on any number of topics. We have edited separators into the show to let you know this was not one session but rather highlights. And, that is not some artificial laugh track in the background, that is real entertained people who think we were funny at times. We love our fans. We hope you love this show or at least like it enough to grant us a pardon. We promise not to try something like this again (until we end up in a Binghamton hotel one night with beer and spiedies and well, you know the rest!)

Enjoy this clips show, we did!

CSA The Deep End Episode 005 - "Part 1 FutureVaganza: Just Where are We Headed!"

So, the stars and planets were aligned in a once in a lifetime way, and the cast and crew of Countless Screaming Argonauts, the Podcast of Record, found themselves together. In a hotel. In Binghamton. With a live audience. Give those guys that with a few beers and anchovy pizza for fuel (spiedie actually) and you know where they go? On a three part LIVE bender. Topic: The Future. Results: Lots of laughs, beers arguments and the like. Bring up social media, the IPad, relatives sex lives, and this is where the fight started. No really, this is where a fair, even handed exchange of ideas was. No really, this is a CSA podcast – this is where the mass confusion, heavy drinking and yelling started. Yea, that’s more like it.

So if you like Maqz, the fabulous Penguin, College Boy, Denali, Manhattan Man, Joshua, Mark Twain or even unruly Jerry Springer-like live audiences, then this is the place for you. We do it in three parts, each about 30 minutes long. This is part one, after just a few beers and Guinness, and Cream-sicles (vanilla vodka and orange soda).

BTW the opening and closing music bumpers for this episode are from the Billy Joel song “Miami 2017”. This was chosen as a reminder that once again CSA couldn’t get things straight – during one of the many criticisms and arguments this song was referenced several times by wrong titles although we were able to get some of the lyrics correct…

Give The Deep End a Try

Miami 2017 (Seen The Lights Go Out On Broadway)

I've seen the lights go out on Broadway-
I saw the Empire State laid low.
And life went on beyond the Palisades,
They all bought Cadillacs-
And left there long ago.

We held a concert out in Brooklyn-
To watch the Island bridges blow.
They turned our power down,
And drove us underground-
But we went right on with the show...

I've seen the lights go out on Broadway-
I saw the ruins at my feet,
You know we almost didn't notice it-
We'd see it all the time on Forty-Second Street.

They burned the churches up in Harlem-
Like in that Spanish Civil War-
The flames were everywhere,
But no one really cared-
It always burned up there before...

I've seen the lights go down on Broadway-
I watched the mighty skyline fall.
The boats were waiting at the Battery,
The union went on strike-
They never sailed at all.

They sent a carrier out from Norfolk-
And picked the Yankees up for free.
They said that Queens could stay,
They blew the Bronx away-
And sank Manhattan out at sea....

You know those lights were bright on Broadway-
But that was so many years ago...
Before we all lived here in Florida-
Before the Mafia took over Mexico.
There are not many who remember-
They say a handful still survive...
To tell the world about...
The way the lights went out,
And keep the memory alive....

Episode 138 - "This party is over..."

On this episode of CSA, the boys bring Joshua, their favorite immigrant, to discuss the new law in Arizona and his reaction to having to "show your papers." They invoke Godwin's Law right off the bat then take the discussion from there to Utah to California to FAIR to a potential baseball boycott.They also cover racial profiling and even busing them back to Mexico in like a half million buses. They then move onto the New York City bomber, to talk about the fantastic job by the police and John Q. Public. Finally Joshua talks about playing darts, the women he meets and his obvious competition with Manhattan Man that he claims to win every time! When Joshua regales the guys with an old Irish story about drinking in Dublin during holy hour you know this party is over.

CSA The Deep End Episode 004 - "Maqz is an Idiot!"

On this edition of The Deep End Maqz goes into the podcast confessional and admits that he is an idiot. Why you might ask? Because he does the same things we all do. He interrupts others train of thought, he believes everything he reads on the internet is true and he feels he is an expert on a variety of subjects. Mea Culpa, mea culpa! For his penance he has to endure T Fab P and Denali's wrath as they make fun of him. Your penance - you have to listen to 28 minutes of this stuff.

Enjoy the Maqz angst!
