I spent most of my evening behind my refrigerator last night. I have had the worst luck with Frigidaire side by sides. This is my second such model, and for some reason the starter relay, or something related to the cooling system goes wonky. Usually it’s the starter relay, which is as easy a fix as plugging in a toaster. However, the fridge decided to throw me a curve ball. I replaced the relay, and i heard the compressor start. I saw the compressor coils get cold. But I don’t hear the cooling fan. So, now I have another issue. it could be one of three things. i have a bad capacitor. I didn’t replace that when I replaced the relay, and maybe I should have. It could be the defrost timer, which Frigidaire puts on the bottom front of the fridge under the baffle. That’s a likely culprit, because I have seen ice melt down the bottom of the freezer and leak out the bottom recently, maybe it’s shorted out. Or, finally, the cooling fan could have gotten aced somehow.
So, now I have all three parts waiting for me to pick up, so I can spend tonight back on that goddamn dance card. And if only one of those parts is bad? I’ll keep the others anyway. Because I may have mentioned, I SEEM TO BE HAVING A REAL GOOD TIME WITH FRIGIDAIRE MOTHERFUCKING REFRIGERATORS.
I want you to read this sentence, and then I want you to read it again. From CNN:
Attorney General William Barr made the decision not to bring charges against Pantaleo, siding with a Justice Department team from New York over the Civil Rights Division in Washington, due to concerns that prosecutors could not successfully prove the officer acted willfully, a senior Justice Department official said.
I don’t have much faith in any part of the Justice Department out of New York, because we’ve already seen what stand up guys they are.
You shouldn’t be shocked what side these people are on. We’ve known this, haven’t we? The only thing that could possibly be shocking is how blatant and unafraid they are to show us who they really are. It’s like they’re unaware of what comes next, and that’s possibly because they don’t read history that wasn’t revised by their own echo chamber.
But we know, don’t we?

Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff created this audio drama for PodShow back in 2006. I absolutely loved it. It’s been offline for years, but MYN has recently put it back up. I think this was a seminal moment in the early days of podcasting. A nod to the great storytelling of the Golden Age of Radio and an acknowledgement of the ‘ancestry’, as well as a glimpse into what the medium could be when fully realized.

Since we’re talking about great storytelling, Cayenne Chris Conroy of the hilarious TekDiff Podcast created a story in 2008 that hooked me. Several seasons of this, each more awesome than the last. Treat your ears to this.
