Next week is a big one for Randy and Jason: Their albumHendersons and Daughterscomes out on Tuesday, they'll be onConanon Wednesday, and they're spending the weekend performing inAnn Arbor. You gotta stretch before you sprint, so prepare for the Sklar-athon with a proper warm-up of Sklarbro Country. Writer Alec Sulkin leavesTwitterfor long enough to discuss working for Craig Kilborn, his friendship with Seth MacFarlane, and his upcoming Mark Wahlberg/Mila Kunis movie. Not enough for you? Well we have Jesse Thorn back for yet another of his fantastic fantasy reports. Still not enough? Sklarbitration returns! Enjoy, and HENDERSON!

No clever quips here. No ingenious wordplay on the "Sklar" name. In fact, nothing important to say here - just a geeky fan letter type of comment.

I just finished listening to this week's episode, and I'm blown away as always by the number and density of the humor. I think the Edward James Olmos "null set" joke is what pushed it over the cliff for me. If that was improvised, then it was a brilliant bit of improv. If it was written beforehand, it was an amazing performance - you made it sound exactly like you just said it off the cuff...

Anyhow, this is absolutely my favorite podcast; I look forward to Friday mornings when I can download, slap it on my iPod, and listen on the way to work. Thanks, guys, and keep up the good work. Henderson, Osbaldiston, boom, zoom, punch a waterfall, and all the rest...

Another great episode Sklars! Mande's Twitter takedown of Agent Zero was tremendous, and the fantasy analysis of America's Radio Sweetheart has never been so passionate & sharp— one always needs to know whose drop is stocking. It sucks that sportswriter Mike Grayson didn't make an appearance, but enjoyed Mr. Sulkin's podcast turn nonetheless.

Randy and Jason,
I'm going crazy man. Everytime today when I was not engaged in a conversation, that friggin Sklarbro-tration song is in my head. I have been popping my iPod on at all intervals when I know it is going to creep up on me, and now I am lying in bed and it's all I hear. I was thinking of making my own Weird Al kinda riff on the same subject, at least it will be Alt.
(Remember when The Naked Trucker and T-Bone would sing this at their gigs?) Glad we were all around for the best times at Largo re: Elliott et al.

Loved finally hearing from @thesulk in a different venue than Twitter. He is hilarious and I hope he shows up on more podcasts in the future.

I love how your Segal dog movie taglines sound like rejected dialogue for Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad. But I can't believe you missed the most obvious one: "Don't play dead...BE dead, bitch"
