When the guy ended up in Atlantis, I lost it. That scene was ridiculous.

How long has Horatio been using "toilet scissors" as a thing? I'm pretty sure it was referenced on a deleted scene on the Asssssscat! DVD back in 2007.

It is also always hilarious.

The wife yelling in the background during the weather killed me. "I'm packing!"

Thanks again Matt for another music recommendation!

These types of shows are great because they introduce me to music that I should have already known about (but didn't), and the scenes that come out of them are always hilarious.

I shall echo the praise of the Atlantis scene. Also the scene with Huskey as the President was magnificent as well.

The background laughter was of epic PFT-level awesomeness in this one. When you guys are cracking each other up, it's a sure sign of "best-of" material.

The Atlantis sketch may be the greatest comedy sketch I've ever experienced.
Also, this David Bazan guy was fantastic. Every song he did was brilliant! Definitely going to be sifting through his catalogue.

Epic lineup. Epic episode.

My only familiarity with David comes from this episode of the Grapes of Rad podcast that played such a big part in my recovering from my fundgelical upbringing. So he already has a million points in my book and I was excited to see he'd be on. His music is really great and I really am liking these musical episodes.

That road rage scene, wow.

It went next level figuratively, and figuratively.
Check out my podcast! A friend and I watch an old show and do some bits.

This was fantastic. David Bazan's music was wonderful, and every sketch was hilarious. I love these music episodes, please do more of them if possible.

this is, hands down, the best I4H (even better than the eric the intern bonus clip and rubber band stand) thus far. david bazan sounded amazing and the bits were stellar. every single scene tied into the next perfectly. fucking outstanding.

i've been hesitant to register an account because i felt like, up until now, i wouldn't have anything important to add to the discussion. at the risk of repeating the praise of others, though, i had to register just to say how much i loved this episode and this podcast.

i can't imagine a moment in some future episode topping michael delaney marveling at the conclusion of a scene but i hope for it.

BEST PODCAST IN THE UNIVERSE

I couldn't possibly choose a favorite episode, but this would probably be in the top 3. The melancholic loveliness of Bazan's songs contrasted with the hilarity that sprang from them. Very special stuff indeed.

I love that Bill Callahan and Will Oldham were mentioned, and I'd just like to point out that the British movie 'Dead Man's Shoes' features songs by both of them. It's a terrific movie, and the only one I know of that Bill and Will have allowed their songs to be featured in.
