Random Show Episode 13 – Kevin and Tim on Trampolines, Apps, and A**holes


12? 13? Our ability to remember episode numbers: negligible.

Kevin’s ability to kick my ass on trampolines: priceless. (Kevin left out the fact that he grew up with one. Trixy.)

Join us at House of Air, which features dozens of trampolines at different angles, including the “Matrix” room. There is a fair amount of cursing in the video. If you have sensitive ears: earmuffs…


Some viewers might have trouble viewing this with iPhones/iPads. Bonus points to anyone who figures out the reason(s). In the meantime, the Vimeo version is fine on iPhones. Sorry about the wonky audio. We decided to try boom vs. lav mics for a change of pace.

For the fellow Slaine fans out there, here’s a treat:


Odds and Ends: Sonos Winner!

The winner of the Sonos ZonePlayer and Klipsch speakers giveaway is Allen of Unfubared. This was a comment/tips competition on the post How to Travel 12 Countries with No Baggage Whatsoever. Congrats, Allen, and thanks for the great travel recommendations that cinched the deal. Keep an eye on your inbox.

There were dozens of fantastic comments, and it was very hard to choose just one, hence the delay in posting the winner. Honorable mentions also go to Mike Burngasser (survivalist approach), Heather Waibel (light-weight packing for women) or Craig Tobin (traveling light with kids in tow).

Thanks to all who commented!

  1. Tim,

    You wanted to be a comic artist?! You just went up two cool levels in my book. I’m a comic book artist, still in my first few years of working professionally. I write, pencil, ink, and color all my own work. I graduated from the Joe Kubert School of Cartooning in 2006. Since first reading 4HWW I have struggled with the concept of automating the process of comic book creation, doesn’t really work in this case. So I’m in the middle of taking my talent and expertise to developing a web comic publishing site as well as a “How To Make Webcomics” informational DVD. Honestly if it wasn’t for the 4HWW I probably never would have thought to do anything more than just keep pencilling away for a steady page rate.

    I’d love to know more about your artistic interests. Did you ever pencil anything or show your pencils at conventions?

    If you ever need a comic artist for anything (chapter breaks in a book Neil Strauss style, blog posts, gifts for friends, etc) I’m your man. My e-mail is [removed for privacy and bot avoidance]. Send me a quick e-mail and I’ll send you some samples of stuff I’m currently working on. Don’t worry, I’ve read your book a couple times and I assure you I won’t harass you with time wasting e-mails. haha.

    Wish you guys had hit the angled trampolines too, fun seeing Tim out of his element on the jumpers a little, looked a little timid there buddy!

    Another great, insightful episode.

    Will be buying 4 Hr Body and Tucker Max books for many people thus Xmas!

    Tim, any ideas on international bestseller lists? Happy to buy any format you recommend, but via Amazon UK.


  3. Flaaash. Where’s my bonus? XD

    Hey, Kevin, now I’m curious. What’s your belief system like? I’m obsessed with belief systems, and I want to know what you think of life, death, god, purpose and whatnot.



  4. It’s not working on my HTC EVO either (the mobile YouTube app anyway, I can watch it in my browser but it’s slow.) I’m guessing you don’t have the box checked that allows mobile viewing. It’s located in the same place that you can enable/disable comments and other options like that. Check that box and you should be golden.


  5. One more thing. When are you going to upgrade to WordPress 3.X? I subscribed to the comments once via email and… Never again! Lol It’s easy to go back to a post and see if you replied. It’s hard to figure out if anyone else replied to you. Threaded comments would be SWEET. That is all. :)
