Same Problems (MM #4067)

"The mason minute. With Kevin mason. Yes, there was one of those days for me. I've been fighting with my mobile phone carrier. You probably have heard of the company that starts with an a and ends with a TT. Pattern for 17 years. I knew the end was coming when they were going to raise my rates because they wanted me on a newer plan that could charge me more money. The plan I was on was their cheapest at over a $150 a month. And they were going to raise me $12 a month. And after 17 years there was nothing I could do about it. So I switched to a company that starts with a T and ends with mobile. And they're all the same. I run into the same problems every time I switch. Nothing is ever smooth, and I understand that. Now at least we can port our numbers as they say and move our number from one carrier to another, but it's never easy. It's never fun, and it's never quick. So I can spend hours literally on hold with her tech support people trying to answer what I think are simple questions that nobody seems to have ever been asked before. I finally get resolved eventually, but it's never easy, it's never quick, and I didn't think I was some kind of power user, but I must be. Different place, different carrier, same cell phone, same problems. Go figure.

Best Coffee (MM #4066)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. I'm a casual coffee drinker. I just know two kinds of coffee. Good coffee and bad coffee. I don't know how you make good coffee. I don't know how you make bad coffee, but when somebody hands me a cup of coffee, I can tell you if it's good or bad. And that's the funny thing about coffee people. They all have feelings about coffee. They all have their opinions when it comes to places like Starbucks, people either love it or hate it. Some say it's bitter, some say it's burnt, some say it's the worst tasting coffee out there, and then some will tell you it's some of the best coffee out there. But I saw a story online the other day about 8 coffee shop chains with the best quality coffee in America. Some of which I've heard of, but don't know much about. The coffee bean and tea leaf over a thousand locations worldwide, some of the best coffee around. Likewise, for Pete's coffee and tea. But the one thing I noticed about it, all the big chains that are everywhere, nowhere to be found in this list. And I don't know if that's good or bad. Because the person who wrote it has got to be biased, because for coffee lovers, there's no gray area. You love it, or you hate it, but sometimes you just can't explain why.

Belly Fat (MM #4065)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason I talk, I wouldn't necessarily say often about being a fat guy about being overweight and body fat is a problem for me, specifically stomach fat, or visceral fat as they call it. Abdominal fat. So I have a lot of articles pop up in my news feed. When it comes to being fat, being overweight, belly fat, all those things. And I saw a story the other day and what I believe was the publication, eat this, not that, which I see a lot of their stories, talking about tricks I can use to lose my visceral fat. Genius visceral fat losing tricks. The first one was meditation. Then, of course, work out being number two. Well, duh. Number three, way and measure your food. There's another duh, then of course the one that I've been yelled at for years, putting your sleep first, making sure you get 7 or 8 hours. I've been trying for a long, long time to get 7 or 8, but somehow people don't want to give me that time. Where's the genius fat loss tricks? Oh wait a minute, meditate. Yeah, I don't know about that. I've got a lot of friends who meditate. I don't have any problem with meditation, but losing fat with meditating? Come on, you got to be kidding me here, right?

Bad Son (MM #4064)

"The mason minute. With Kevin mason. It's Mother's Day and I don't often admit when I'm a bad son, because I try not to be a bad son, but I think today I officially fit the ranks of being a bad son. Now with that said, the reason why? I thought Mother's Day was next weekend. I realized there's this thing called Google, and there's this thing called a calendar, and you can go look and it'll tell you when Mother's Day is. But I automatically, for some reason, thought, well, it's got to be next weekend. It's the second Sunday of the month. Although I realized, well, the first of the month was a Sunday, and so therefore, may 15th is the third Sunday of the month. So I was wrong. So I didn't send my mother a card. I will call my mother as I do each and every Mother's Day to talk to just say hello and kind of spend time with her. I know if I were a better son, I'd actually go visit her, but it's one of those things we've lived apart for so long. It's just easier to talk over the phone rather than see each other because it's both tiring and expensive for both of us. So I'll say hello to mom and that's a great thing. She's only been my mom for over 60 years, so but I'm a bad son today. I'm going to own up to it. I'm going to put it out on the Internet for everybody else to hear. Of course, luckily my mom's not on the Internet, so she won't know a thing.

Spoiled Princess (MM #4063)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. It's been no secret that I'm a cat lover. I've had cats now for going on 30 years, something like that, I think. My first wife was the one that got us cats the first time, and I wasn't thrilled about it then, but it did change my life. Right now, we have one, our princess, if you will, are spoiled princess, busy, who rules the house, it's her house and we just happen to live here. Recently, we've had visitors, and it's not that their visitors who want to bother us. Well, visitors who are curious because they see the cat behind the glass. We've got cats who roam the neighborhood and they just stop by. And they don't stop by to cause trouble. It's like they're curious. And so she sits in her little front window perch and freaks out because she's an indoor cat. She's never really been outside and, well, she can't handle it. She doesn't know what to do. Fright or flight, and she bangs her head against the window and she kisses and she growls and now they won't stay close, but they stay around. They're just being friendly. They're just stopping by and saying hi. So what does our spoiled princess do? She sits in the window and watches and yawns. Well, I'm sure we'll have another visitor today or tomorrow or whenever and want to hear the bumping on the window. I'll know what to do.

Tough Being A Fan (MM #4062)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. Being a fan is a funny thing, because it's tough being a fan, depending on how big of a fan you are, does that make sense? The more you are a fan, the more emotional you get with things. Wednesday was a weird day for me. It was the day of the announcement for The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for 2022. And the NASCAR Hall of Fame for 2023. And of course, I'm a big fan of both rock and roll and NASCAR. And while, well, you don't look at the people who got in and say, well, I don't want them or they shouldn't get in or maybe you do. You're more upset about the people you wanted to get in that didn't. The Rock hall, I pretty much given up on that as of many people, because it's really just a popularity contest. The band I wanted in most, the band I believe to be in most. Of course, I'm a big fan of. That's Devo, the hometown boys from just outside of Cleveland. And guess what? They didn't get in. I don't even think they got close. Now I got no qualms with pat benatar with even Eminem for that matter. Same thing with NASCAR. Don't mind who got in. Don't mind Matt Kenseth. Don't mind Kirk shelmerdine, but wish Harry Hyde had gotten in. I know it's a silly thing, but it's those things that prove we're a fan.
