I love hearing a roomful of funny, supportive friends interacting. It warms my heart to hear all the love they have for each other and especially for Tig. I am excited that Amy, Tig and Kyle will be in NYC soon. I can't wait to see them all performing live!
I am very excited to see Tig with huge "porn boobs". I wonder if, in addition to shaving their heads in support, Kyle, David and Aaron will get implants as well.
I am seriously blown away by the courage Tig is showing in continuing to do the podcasts and continuing to be funny and upbeat. She is an inspiration to us all. I continue to pray for her every day and ask all Blastronauts to do likewise or to send good thoughts, love, and positive energy her way. I wish we could do more.
Welp, that's been comment.

The laughs and fun are such a great balance to the undercurrent of Tig's tragedies (and also Kyle's hair tragedy) this show has even more meaning to me than ever. I really enjoyed this week's discussion, I hadn't really considered the concept of using projection to understand the rude behavior of others. Don't blame myself, they are merely projecting their problems onto me.
Aaron had another incredible choice in clips this week, I love the idea that you're quietly rebroadcasting background spaceship noise. It's like the "Would You Rather" theme except even less engaging... but equally sacrosanct! That's right, I just suggested that Aaron is as funny as Scott Aukerman.

I've always liked Amy Schumer's stand-up. Seeing her at first glance, I never once thought she looked like anybody that wasn't good at stand-up. That never crossed my mind. I didn't know you had to have a certain physical look about you to be good at stand-up. I do go on certain tones though.. as well as a certain rhythm, flow and build up to punchlines. But not by their looks. That's absurd to me.
I REALLY hope everything turns out well for Tig to dig into this new show. I really want to see what she and Kyle come up with as far as their writing creativity and it'll be an extra bonus to see them pop up on screen every once in a while. I wish Tig and Amy did do a reality show together. HOW AMAZING WOULD THAT HAVE BEEN?!
Aaron's horribly bad clip was one of the highlights (besides Craig popping in). Also, hearing Amy describe her bad date and coming to the realization that it MAY have been Kyle was just hilarious. Dang I love this podcast.

I guess I didn't realize what kind of a person Amy was until now, she isn't who I thought she was at all. Her, "Stop trying to f*ck me and Tig" was great.
Still hoping for good news soon from Tig.

It was super exciting to hear the guys (AND girls!) doing a shout-out in my honor at the end of this episode -- now I just have to listen to it a few more times to see if I can make out what each person was saying!
Please receive my heartfelt wishes of health for Tig, and many, many more episodes of Professor Blastoff!
