I lived in LA for the past 8 or 9 years, and I even remember their LA Weekly story years ago, but I figured how good can the podcast be, they got Nick Young on the cover and he's the worst. Maybe Nick Young is actually good, LA Weekly was right to showcase 'em! And Betsy Sodaro!

i'm sorry to report that nick young is no longer good simply because he broke his rule of "no tats on the right arm strictly for buckets."

we interrupt your regularly scheduled forum to bring you a live HHFFMC update: it is with infinite sorrow and trepidation that I must report the tragic accident that has befallen The Black Satan Metallica Stones of Rock & Also Roll aboard their B-59 Concorde stealth hellcat rocketjet bound for Morocco to kick off the 2017 Dumpster Fire World Tour when some birds got sucked into all of the engines and the co-pilot tried to wake up Sully for a patented miracle water landing but he'd taken 3 ambien and was passed out so the co-pilot did his best and called in an emergency mayday SOS before all traces of the aircraft disappeared somewhere in the vicinity of Bermuda near a 3-sided geometric figure

at the ceremony for remembrance and serious reflection Lars Ulrich sang an acoustic version of I Believe I See the Lighthouse with Phil Collins on bongos, Flea on vibes, Miley Cyrus playing the whole world, Yoko Ono on dobro, Woody Harrelson on tubular bells, Meatloaf on meat flute, Lana Del Rey on kazoo, some Greek folk on cheek poke, Billy Joel on keyboard, David Letterman on the vacuum and Neil Peart on a little tambourine. because Weiser was playing so hard to get he wasn't aboard the plane and is the sole surviving member of the group. he accepted the Rock & Also Roll Hall of Fame memorial legacy tribute award on our behalf

the album we recorded is finished and will be released posthumorously because this whole ordeal is very sad and definitely not funny. but we'll always have the memory of our 1st jam that Jack White saw and flipped out about to Oprah

So I found this picture to post in defense of Vintent. As their conversation clearly shows, Kevin James and Adam Sandler are hanging out and talking about how many doughnuts Kevin can eat. It is a lot!

I got your back, Vintent, wherever you are. It honestly took some guts to call in.

(As you can see this image has been slightly edited. For some reason it was nearly impossible for me to find a picture of Kevin James even holding a doughnut, or eating anything. There are tons of Kevin Smith handing out doughnuts, though.)

See I knew he was the worst!! CONFIRMED!

And now he'll get a ring this year, joining such esteemed company as Adam Morrison and Antoine Walker.

And speaking of basketball cuz I brought it up earlier, I really like the old SXSW episode they did where they make fun of college basketeering. It was a lotta the same arguments I make to people who think college ball is better (since everyone sucking except 5 dudes is great basketyball), and I felt validated for the first time ever.

IT'S FOR FETISHISTS WHO LOVE WHITE STIFFS BOXING OUT BUT FAILING AT EVERYTHING ELSE!

I know it's shocking news about The Black Satan Metallica Stones of Rock and Also Roll. Thankfully our manager had some good foresight and had recently not only insured our lives, but also purchased our burial plot. Yes, that's right, a singular burial plot. Turns out it's a lot less expensive and "better for the environment" to put us all into one big grave than dig several smaller graves. Also, it will be very symbolic of our connection as a band if we share a grave, at least that's what our manager said. They're even going to wait to cover us over until Weiser dies so that he can join us before we technically get "buried" which is quite thoughtful. Of course our bodies haven't been found yet so nothing has been confirmed, but our life insurance policies should more than cover the funeral costs to our manager if they ever are.

Just checking in for the first time in 4 years to say I did listen to this episode and I do still like the show, and all the shows should be like this.

It works for me because you can hear the callers are trying very hard, and one thing that I love about Hollywood Handbook is that famous thing where you can hear all the effort and strain which the hosts put into it

shocked and heartbroken at this news. i should be so flattered that fellow hoosier daivd letterman was playing the vacuum in my honor.

the only option now is to fund a rock-u-mentary produced by the birthday boys about our meteoric rise and fall.

I just found out that I'll be living the slow moving boat life to Seattle this Saturday. I'd see if you wanted to meet up for drinks again, but it sounds like you're out of town. Also I'm going to be heading there at like 10:30 AM and it would feel like I've got a serious problem if I were drinking that early. I'll still try to have a good time even though the Water World pee pee machines on the Washington State ferries leave much to be desired.

It's probably good that I didn't see anything about a call-in ep, for what surely would have been an earth-shatteringly easy rapport between us would have sprung up so quickly, too quickly, for the equilibrium's of listeners, passersby, etc. to go unaffected. Not that people would be affected negatively, necessarily, its just that conversation that sparkling, that possessed of so effortless a rhythm, and that full of the joie de vivre of 3 people finding within each other a shining light that in turn shines on and reveals facets of each other heretofore unseen, creating spiraling cascades of delight as a triumvirate briefly becomes one. Such free-flowing repartee, like the raging torrents of the mighty Nile, would be uncharted territory for you listeners. People might die!

No, until the technology is there we should probably, perhaps ethically, play it safe. Sometimes the responsibility of being a genius is that you have to know when to say, "I'm sorry I can't talk at your podcast because of the spiraling delight deaths"
You can follow me on twitter I guess. I mean, if that sounds like a good idea.

I can still remember some of those rules.

Such as:

Have eggs, gobble that seed

Also, I think they changed something and your pic has to be below a certain size. I got it to finally work by resizing it to 149x149
