Learn which unbelievable movie starring a professional wrestler we will be covering next on today's minisode! Paul also shares some listener voicemails about Solarbabies, JCVD's buns and more. Send your own voicemail explanation hopes for Paul to answer by calling 619-PAUL ASK. Later, we hear what Blake Harris found out during his journey trying to contact the direct of Solarbabies and Paul goes through Corrections and Omissions for Solarbabies. Don’t forget to check out Blake Harris’ Oral History of Solarbabies over at www.slashfilm.com! Get yourself a BB-8 “What Is Its Mission?” T-shirt or Tote Bag over at http://howdidthisget....bigcartel.com/ Set your DVRs for Party Over Here, a new FOX sketch comedy show from The Lonely Island and Paul starring Nicole Byer, Jessica McKenna, and Alison Rich. It airs Saturdays at 11 pm. People of the internet: Watch Paul in Fresh off the Boat on ABC. Awhile ago, Paul and Rob Huebel did a comedy special on a 60 foot glass bus that traveled around LA. Now you’ll be able to see it. Go to https://itun.es/us/3M4J9 now to buy it! You can also see Jason in Transparent on Amazon! Also, check out June in Grace and Frankie available on Netflix, and in all the episodes of NTSF:SD:SUV:: on HULU for free, and Jason in The Dictator (he’s still in it!).

I've seen a bunch of Frogtown, and by extension Donald G. Jackson movies. The second one replaces Roddy Piper with Robert Z'Dar and think there's one that has porn star Jill Kelly in a leading role... (Max Hell Frog Warrior, might be the 3rd one).

The first one is probably watchable but don't start exploring this guy's catalogue unless you really wanna jump down a wormhole of peyote-fueled garbage.

I don't remember watching Hell Comes to Frogtown, but according to my imdb rating I hated it

I wish everyone that called into the Paul Ask # would take note of AJ's call, because it was basically perfect. He clearly had worked on what he was going to say. If he didn't write everything down, he at least had a bullet point list of the high points. His message was a bit longer, but that's just because he needed to set things up. Overall, he was very concise and was probably one of the best call-ins we've had.

I don't want to bring up the one that completely drove me up the wall because I realize that it takes a certain amount of nerve just to call in and have your voice played on the podcast. I haven't done it, so I'm really in no place to criticize, but I just wanted to point out how great I thought that dude did.

I think you may want it too much. They may be afraid that if they do Annihilation that you'll have no reason to stick around. They're just keeping you on the line, my friend. Every listener counts.

Judging from the cover alone Hell comes to frogtown seems like a solid episode in the making.

I'll ALWAYS stick around, this is like internet home for me... other than various shameful porn sites, gambling sites and I've said too much revealing stuff about myself already.

One of these days I'll make a C&O that gets read on the show.



Maybe one day Senpai will notice me. (In my case Senpai is Jason, but the joke still works in this case too.)

Just don't try. All the ones Paul's ever read from mine have been ones that I thought were really stupid when I was writing them. And the ones where I was like, "OH SNAP I'M ONTO SOMETHING!" disappeared into the ether.

So, just like in life, it doesn't pay to try.

For anything.

Ever.

Same with me, to put it into perspective, go back to the "Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Couseller" corrections and omissions, Paul read out an omission that was a reply to my omission that Brice and Judith were an approximation of Jesus Christ and Judas Escariot. and I thought "What the hell?! I brought that shit up!"

Well after this minisode, I naturally want to see something called Superbabies, and not that Baby Genius garbage.

I'm with Fister. Mine that he read for this minisode he was dropping out words, cutting out jokes, and making me sound like a real asshole. Which is accurate. But I don't need any help with that.

Yeah, when I was listening to it I was like, "ChunkStyle--what a fucking asshole!" ;)

But honestly, I think you all are being too harsh. Fortunately for me, he hasn't "egariously" butchered any of mine in a long time, but I still feel like it's a badge of honor for Paul to mutilate your posts. I've been re-listening to all the minis for nominees for the Howdy's (I don't feel right nominating any of my own) and I still cringe at his read of my LOL post. It was tragic. But, it's all in good fun. I still just think it's cool that he, Nate, or Marissa think any of my stupid bullshit is even worthy to be read.

In regard to Fister's point about reading the posts that you don't think are very good, my favorite example of this was during the Zardoz 2 episode and my pseudo-philosophical meanderings on that movie. I remember writing that post simply because I was totally talking out of my ass. I hated that movie so much! And I was scrolling through all the comments and everyone seemed to be giving that movie so much weight and just assigning meaning to everything. So, in like ten minutes, I just farted out this post in response--basically making fun of all the mumbo-jumbo BS I was reading. Next thing I know, he's reading it to June, and they're saying something like, "Wow--I guess this movie really does make you think, doesn't it..."

Could you imagine if he had done this with one of the posts you, me, or Taylor Anne made to make fun of all the Caramel hate a couple threads back?

I think that would have been pretty hilarious.
