    Episode 96 — Monkey Shines

    I can't believe no one bothered to mention her incredibly hairy, almost monkey-like, legs during the sex scene. I figured this would set off Jason.

    Earwolf @ SXSW

    Just now realizing I could've made it down there this year but completely forgot to check earlier.

    Got a job?

    I like the idea of Earwolf working like an unemployment office. "Are you familiar with the microsoft office suite?" Also I need a job.

    Show us your Earwolf swag!!

    I have 2 shirts and Hendersons and Daughters but after what I payed for framing I think this is what I need to show off.
  5. David Carradine in Crank 2 is an awesome asian.

    Shameless :(

    I get the feeling the donation mentions didn't start until about september.

    Episode 142 — Popcorn.com

    I was just thinking to myself over the weekend how I hadn't heard them on a podcast together. Damn mind readers.

    In the Name of the King or...

    Really any Uwe Boll movie works, he is a crap factory.

    New Moderator Introduction Post!!

    Welcome Shannon! Glad to have a real moderator on here now that the forums are so nice. I'm Rob. I go to school at Purdue University in Indiana (possibly the worst place on earth if you were unaware). Huge comedy fan, huge podcast fan. I am currently trying to get into the video production field, hopefully television. I'm also an aspiring standup but it's hard to find anywhere to go around here to do that. Glad to hear you'll be in the off topic section, it get's a little stagnant.

    Episode 39 — Free For All: NTK

    Me and my friends rag on each other for messing up words all the time just like Tig. It's a staple of our groups comedy.
  13. Love the new format. II am amazed I've somehow heard of birdemic and not trespass.
  14. The fact that it's so bad just makes me want to hear it more and more. I fear if we stop we might actually miss something mediocre.

    How do I get more Twitter followers?

    Be jealous of my 20 followers. I am going to try that Favstar thing julia, and just tweeting more in general. I am so censoring of my own tweets, need to just go ahead and post stuff even if it's not great.

    Using the Amazon link

    So I have been trying to use the amazon link every time I buy something off there. I notice that when I click the link from here, the Amazon page has an earwolf tag in the URL bar but when I go to find what I am looking to buy it seems to disappear. I assume it still counts the earwolf account but does anyone know if there is a way to see if it truly does on the receipt or order summary?

    Episode 58 — Critter Sandusky

    Episode 72 — That\'s So Selleck!

    I second Julia's plea to watch the league. I didn't bother watching it for so long because I just didn't care about football, especially fantasy. It is such an amazing show that nowadays, only has minor references to football it seems. It is an earwolf fans wet dream most episodes. More Tim Gunn please, make it work people.

    Episode 45 — Walking The Room

    Really enjoyed this episode. I loved how many times Dave and Greg would ask or suggest something and kind of chastise Jeff. "Do you have a street crew...no?...What the hell." I definitely feel like Earwolf has the personal feel that they think is missing. If you listen to all the Podcasts, not just one, you get a better feel of it. We hear about Randy and Jason's kids, Jeff's baby on the way, Kulap and Scott's marriage etc. The wolf den itself is the best example of this, the thanksgiving episode was one of the most personal episodes of any show I have ever heard. Hearing from not just the hosts but EVERYONE behind the scenes actually humanizes the network more than something like just hearing Maron talk about his life. You can see how much Earwolf connects and is important to so many peoples lives.
  22. Really liked it, you have awesome stage presence. Where do you mainly go on stage?

    Camera for web series/sketches

    I do a lot of video editing and animation for myself in school and for my job. I have wanted to start working on a web series and sketches with friends and have been looking into getting a new camera. I currently have a crappy panasonic camcorder that I really hate. I am pretty sure I am going to buy the Canon t2i, all the reviews have been really good for shooting video. I was wondering if anyone else does similar work and had objections or suggestions about cameras.

    Bonfire of the Vanities

    SPOILERS Did you not pay attention to any of the plot? The reason the million dollars is a big deal isn't that it's a million dollars, it belongs to the east coast mob, they steal it to get them out of their territory. If they don't get it back and kill the driver then it could get out that they were the ones that stole it, hence the need for the dummy robbery, Bryan Cranston has to die for the same reason. This goes right into your fifth point, the job was a setup and they just used this "schmuck" as a pawn that they knew they would kill. He owed them money and it just so happened that this was the one job that year that was a planned setup, Albert Brooks even says this. The rest of your concerns are all stylistic choices which I personally enjoyed, the jacket was supposed to be obvious, but a bit of an icon.

    Bonfire of the Vanities

    Yeah this movie was awesome. If the only reason you have is "To much pause." you have crazy standards.
