  1. Wow, I for one would love a “further reading list” or something similar! A “recommended playing list” would be welcomed too.

    Also, I’ve been trying to think of a word since I listened last night. The best I can come up with is to Augerate, a mixture of the Latin root words “augere” (to increase or promote, which eventually led to “author” and “authentic”) and “aggerare” (to heap up, which eventually gave us “exaggerate”). So, it would sort of mean to pile up an over abundance of authenticity.

    I’m not really sure how to pronounce that (aw-jer-ate, ah-ger-ate?), and “auger” is already a word, but using root words would add more credibility (read: sound more pretentious) maybe.

  2. When you two hit your riffing stride, it was tough to keep up with all the recommendations!

    I kind of lean toward “Fansplosioning” or “Camplification”…
