Father’s Day LIVE from Washington DC

Rangounmuzzled #68 – Father’s Day LIVE from Washington DC

Rango pulls out all the stops in this live broadcast from Washington DC, with a full plate of hard rock, all the sexy in the house, commentary on commendable fathers, the tragic customer service situation at T-Mobile, and a copiously long rant about the state of affairs in the USA touching on Iraq, Syria’s chemical weapons, the abject failure and lies of the Bush administration, the crisis in Obama’s leadership, the flow of military technology from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and U.S. Department of Homeland Security to local law enforcement, the outrageous arrogance of Peoria Mayor Jim Ardis, and all things internet as per Wayne Glad Stone‘s 5-star treatise “notes from the internet apocalypse”.

Rango Unmuzzled #67 – Solar Roadways

Includes blatant revisionist history, songs that did not happen on the live show, and the unmuzzled artistry of:

5x the #Fail with T-Mobile

 

Make the Call

Make the Call

T-Mobile you should be ashamed of your customer service.  Today was a disaster, $150 to “service the warranty”, apparently a standard deductible for garbage these days.

I thought I paid for the top-shelf warranty, best I could get.  Turns out it wasn’t very good, again.

They’re telling me because this phone has minor cosmetic damage to the display that they won’t honor the warranty, even though the reason we’re bringing it in is because the cheap micro-USB adapter socket is munged and the thing won’t except a charge.

 

Rango the Dog

Rango the Dog

This is why they’re losing my business forever.  This my 5th phone that’s failed from them, and they’ve never once given me respectable service.  I’ve never walked out of one of their stores with a replacement phone, and their coverage area here in the Seattle area is absolutely dreadful!!!  I’ve never once seen 4 bars on my phone, even right by their offices in Bellevue, and at my house in Kenmore 10 miles away i get zero bars consistently.

I’ll take this one step further and point out that the people working the customer service counter at the Totem Lake Store were horribly inept and indifferent to the contiuum of product failure and miserable customer service.  All they did was give me an 800 number to call and try to shoo me away from the counter (the “warranty service number” was closed for the evening). What’s really shameful is that they sell you on this notion that you’ll be able to get service at their stores,  as if you can just bring your phone in and they’ll be able to help you.  Actually they just outsource it to a third party that sends you to a website that sends you to an 800 number that sends you to voice mail jail.

Fortunately there’s an AT&T store in the same shopping center.  I’m switching as soon as i can get out of my awful contract with them.  They’ve failed in every respect, service area, quality of product, and customer service, as long as I’ve been an unhappy customer, which is since day one.

Also previously:

(Yes there were three more previous incidents of phone failure, all with equally horrible customer service.  I’ll spare you the boredom)

Rango Unmuzzled 64 – Bitness

Rangounmuzzled Episode 64 – Bitness

In the interest of computer science Rango challenges Plagus to count and the show procedes to fall apart from there. Weaved into the fabric of fail: waxing philosophical on computers and social media, encoded messages, sound bites from NASA, and a big reveal at the end connecting all the dots.

And finally, check out this excerpt from Sabrina Pena Young’s Liberteria:

 

#rangothedog sharing the roll of Simeon with vocalist Perry Cook in Sabrina Pena Young’s Liberteria.

Published on May 4, 2014

Libertaria Album:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/libertaria-soundtrack-special/id691147227

In a post-USA Dystopia the rebel Libertaria escapes from the GenTech Factory and pairs up with her addict father Simeon to destroy evil reverse-aging scientists in this “groundbreaking” and “epic” opera by award-winning composer Sabrina Pena Young.

WATCH THE FULL MOVIE:

http://virtualtheater3000.blogspot.com/

LYRICS: METAL INK

From Libertaria: The Virtual Opera
Lyrics/Music by Sabrina Peña Young
Performed by Perry R. Cook and Matthew Meadows (aka Rango the Dog)

(Half-drunk, half-high on the genetic drug Metal Ink, Simeon strolls about town in a mad stupor, singing to anyone or anything that will listen. In a moment of lucidity he remembers his lost daughter Lucinde, but soon he jumps back into an excited reprise of Metal Ink.)

Metal Ink
That’s the stuff we’re drinking
Half oil
Half charity
Half who knows what?
But that’s the stuff we’re drinking

To stay alive
No! Survive!

Delicious tweaking metalness
Trickling down my rusted pipes
Organic
Decaying to so much less

Oh! Metal Ink!
That’s the stuff we’re drinking
Half oil!
Half charity!
That’s the stuff we’re drinking

But have you seen my sweet Lucinde?
Black hair, or was it brown?
Hell, if I can remember it now!
Just so high
High as the sky
Burned red as blood
Will I touch your silken face again, Innocent One?

I found your doll
Under that wall
On that horrific Tuesday morning
That horrific morning
What a Tuesday mourning!

What a Tuesday mourning!

Want some ink?
What do you think?
I’m just having a drink
A swig
A taste of life
Down throat and into the zone

Metal Ink!

#rangothedog vs #themistress

Rango Unmuzzled: Episode 60 – Wicked 

Plagus goes behind Rango’s back and brings in The Mistress to co-host the show. Without missing a beat and true to form she starts distracting from the beginning, ultimately brings in the heavy gear, and completely derails the show. Includes at least one spank and the unmistakable sound of thigh-high leather boots on the floor.

Return of The Mistress

Rango the Dog

the one where the mistress shows up and messes with my head:

1/2 way into the show she has #rangothedog babbling like an idiot!

(worse than normal)

Rangounmuzzled #59 – Fango Unruzzled

Rango kicks off the show celebrating the release of Ben Badenhorst’s Unicorn Happiness. Along the way: birthday greetings to The Mistress and some high profile indies.

During the second half everything comes apart as The Mistress herself walks into the studio and proceeds to blow up the show, going tit-for-tat against Rango and showing him who’s the boss on the mic.
