We start off the show with a noisy crowd… Show 50 and the party is already out of control…
And we lost our too guests… apparently, they crashed…

Hat Maven makes a deadpan joke about since they crashed, he hopes they are ok…

Car Maven says Texas is central time and the other guy said something about his kids…

We didn’t get into Beer Pairing last episode because we all had too much to say about Google + so we are going to do it now to start off episode 50!

But before we do Andrew wants to bring up something he found to be disgusting…

Twisted_Majic sent out a tweet about Donut Burgers at the Calgary Stampede!
Andrew wants to know if it is a paddy between two donuts or donut in a bun.

Big digression on the Calgary Stampede…

Maple Glaze donut with a big square beef paddy in between… Twisted_Majic says it would be great with a black beer…. the donut burger was amazing and Stampede was awesome.

Mennonites vs Hederites vs Bunkerites…

Now into the food tasting / black beer pairing.
Ragin Cagin Beef Jerky and Black Forest Fudge…

Wow, Satomi is doing shots of Tequilla… no way!!!!

Andrew starts to give some background about previous black beer pairings in previous shows… but he’s too late… Bob is into the food and loving it!

Bob loves the Black Forest Fudge… he said the nuts taste like marsh mellows because of all the sugar.
Andrew likes the Ragin Cagin Beef Jerky…
Everybody else starts getting into the taste test.

Hat Maven says he is very excited about Netflix adding Eddie Murphy RAW to the roster.

Bob wants to bring in Craig from Craigslist to the show.

Schmelt Maven says if you go to Craigslist in the top right corner of the page you can watch the Craigslist Movie… Schmelt Maven says his friend went to the Craigslist office in San Fran and it is just an apartment and Craig is just a regular guy…

The Black Beer has arrived and Bob is talking about some crazy stuff… Andrew says it appears that Bob has had one Black Beer too many…

12 minutes into the show and we haven’t said a thing.

Andrew said that the Ragin Cagin goes very, very well with black beer…
Not so sure about the Black Forest Fudge…

Bob likes the Black Forest Fudge with Black Beer.

Bob mentions the Podcast Tent that Kimberly and bob did at Social Media Camp in Victoria.

Hat Maven brings up the two-hour keynote for Apples new product releases… Hat Maven couldn’t pull himself away from the presentation. He said it knocked his socks off and he can’t wait… the biggest change in computing we’ve seen in years… coming soon.

Twisted_Majic is smoking a water vapor cigarette.

Car Maven says Lion upgrade is only $29… Final Cut is cheap now… Bob says it is awesome for 90 % of the market but he pros are going to abandon it… Bob says that Final Cut 10 is basically Final Cut 10 is basically iMovie plus…

Andrew asks what Twisted_Majic is smoking…

He got it from Smoke Envy…

Bob says the S-word which was surgically altered to not sound like the S-word.

Twisted_Majic says the fake cigarette he is smoking has no nicotine because it is not legal to have nicotine cartridges in Canada yet. It really looks like a real cigarette…

Everyone agrees it would be cool to have a vapor pipe or vapor cuban cigar.

Another Google + hangout sound effect as someone signs into the hangout….

Bob adjusts the mic as one of the guests gets ready to talk.
Bob asks the new chick what her Mavenhood is? She naturally answers… what?
The Ragin Maven… no relation to the Cagin

Bob says the Ragin Maven should release her new song by invite only…
She could call it the Beta song… and the beta never ends.

Twisted_Majic brings up a Debbie Gibson song… and Billy Talent with Boys of Summer.
Just find an 80s song and redo it and it will be a hit.

Bob says it is very important to know your fanbase…

The other new guest – Bob gives a full physical description for Podcast listeners who can’t see him.
Who is he? Lee, and he have a facebook fan page for his band. Rally car.

A cell phone rings…

Hat Maven asks if the band is on Justin Space?

Lee makes a Twitter joke…

Have you liked the Bunker Project on facebook yet?


Bob asks if the Band has been Gamified…

Bob says the show is rambling… Hat Maven says it is a 50th birthday party of the Bunker Project.

Andrew brings up the Google + stats and how Canada isn’t mentioned at all… he wonders if we’ve been lumped in with the USA and if that is the case… why can’t we have Google Voice?

Schmelt Maven brings up a point about Google Talk being free in Canada right inside Gmail. He can call anyone in North America for free… what is the difference? Why does he need Google Voice.

Andrew explains that Google Talk allows you to call from your Gmail but Google Voice is actually a virtual pbx or phone system. Similar to Toktumi… the Bunker Project uses Toktumi and you can call 1-877-636-1474 to leave a message for the show.

Digression into the Majic Jack… Andrew makes a dongle joke.

Andrew brings up a point that Grand Central was in Canada… discussion about Google Voice and Canadian regs.

James (Twisted_Majic) brings up Empire Avenue… Andrew asks what he would do to make it better? James says it is top secret and can’t reveal anything…

Andrew brings up “Pay with a tweet”
You can buy a product or service using a tweet as currency.
A reward for tweeting…

Andrew compares it to North Social’s Unlocking feature which posts out your facebook wall when you download the free digital product.

Twisted_Majic brings up a point about how many Tweets get retweeted…

Bob brings up Reward Me and how their competition got bought out by Google for $10 million.

Twisted_Majic suggests selling old seasons of the Bunker Project…

Some funny things are said…

Andrew brings us back to the Google Plus stats… and says that only 24% of Google + users are female… so if your a guy don’t expect to get any dates on this platform.

Zynga… buys a Canadian Mobile App company.

Bob wants to play the Many Game…

Andrew says that if your listening for the first time… sorry!
