    Episode 456 - The Historic Rap

    This ep has Best Of 2016 written all over it. "You guys have reached peak making-fun-of-me."

    Episode 438 - Hair Take It

    BCB sprung to mind for me as well, but I had a feeling it wouldn't be him because it did not fit the criteria since Big Chunky Bubbles appeared on the Live in Montreal howl-exclusive ep, the recording of which I would assume preceded today's ep.
  5. I just started the improvised story portion of the podcast, and I'm going to predict that, with the location being 'Airship Underwater,' Paul sneaks in a Bioshock reference or two. EDIT: No mentions! I lose.
  6. Speaking of two mentions in a day, Scott on today's CBB— which was recorded in the past week or so— made reference to Alien Vs Predator's tagline "Whoever Wins, We Lose" when he mentioned Batman Vs Superman, as did Nima Funk on this episode, which, as Robyn mentioned, was recorded in early June. Paul cracked up both times at the mention, as did I!
  7. On the Joe Besser topic, Matt explained at the very beginning that Joe Besser and Matt's grandfather were first cousins. In relation to Matt, you just add 'removed' for every generation between he and Joe. Matt's father and Joe Besser are first cousins once removed. Matt and Joe are first cousins twice removed. it's even stated plain as day on Matt's wikipedia page, with a citation leading to an interview in which Matt says what he repeated on the show: Joe Besser was Matt's grandfather's cousin. In Larry's letter that Matt reads before they get on the call, the letter states that Joe Besser was Larry's great uncle. That means that Larry is more directly blood-related to Joe Besser than Matt, because Larry's grandmother Henrietta was Joe's sister, whereas Matt's grandfather Herbert was Joe's first cousin. Matt's great grandfather Isidore was Joe's uncle. Once Matt ands Larry talk this out, Larry misspeaks and calls Matt's and Joe's blood relation as being second cousins. They are actually first cousins twice removed. I don't think Larry and Matt figure out their specific blood relation, but based on the tree established during the call, Henrietta and Herbert were first cousins (because their dads Morris and Isidore were brothers), therefore Matt's dad and Henrietta's child/Larry's parent are second cousins, so Larry and Matt are third cousins. Family tree branches spread wide when you get into cousin numbering. TL;DR Joe and Matt are first cousins twice removed. Larry and Matt are third cousins.
  9. I skimmed through this long thread first but may have missed it. Has anyone mentioned that they referenced the song 'We Are the Champions' a few times during the ep, but that song is by Queen? Wasn't sure if this was a mix up or if they were simply tapping into the "songs performed by gay men" reference pool. I would bet it was just a mix up.
  10. Boingo the Celebrity-Turned-Hermit was quite a gem of a character to have had unfold.

    Episode 412 - Little Whittle Whistle

    I'm usually more worried he'll say 'Mailer Daemon' 13 times.
  12. Kathy snuck in a one word Mr. Show reference to the band Smoosh when she answered Scott's question with, "dunno."
  13. I never thought I'd hear Paul F. say my name, let alone ALW! I asked the ska question and was delighted with their answers. haha
  14. Great episode! And I must say, that new logo is BANGING. The idea of couching the insignia inside a compass rose is SO cool. It seamlessly fits with the old map background and the parchment/canvas-style banner swirling about it. Every time I turn my phone on and see the logo full on the screen I just GLOM on it with my eyes. It fucking POPS. Perfect evolution of the logo. Cheers!
  15. "Oh yeah, get in tight. Feel my hot breath on your nape." That slayed me. Gabrus as a super-jock-y, pumped up Wall Street guy was amazing, and Matt's decision to be a limp, wet rag of a guy to counteract his alpha male-ness was a great choice! Langhorne Slim was really good too! I liked the songs, and the improvisers pulled a lot of funny stuff from the music. The "Thanks, Jon, 'cuz you're one of my biggest critics," conversation was a genuinely touching part of the episode as well.

    Episode 408 - LIVE at SXSW 2016

    Oh man, as soon as they started really digging into Entourage and the Aquaman movie, I was thinking, "PLEASE ask Len what kind of Aquaman movie he'd make. PLEASE ask Len what kind of Aquaman movie he'd make." Then Scott asked and I was like, "YES!!!" but then immediately they were derailed. Awww man...
  17. Here here on the Fun Buns praise! She's great. Everyone should check out The Complete Woman? w/ Marabel May. It's really funny in the same comedic vein as Superego, and if you're not able to subscribe to Howl for a month to give it a listen, Amanda's and Maria Blessucci's ep of James Bonding where they discuss Casino Royale very emphatically and at length is also pretty darn good! Amanda and Maria love that movie, dare I say, more than the Matts.
  18. I was sincerely podcast-shocked (bc it's all relative; nbd in the grand scheme of things, of course) at Paul's disclaimer that Besser didn't participate in the improv. I actually stopped the podcast and put on CBB as a way to digest that info. Coming back to the improv section of Spont now, and it is really good! Fingers crossed that Matty B comes back sooner than later. I love a PFT/Matty B improv crossover like last week's i4h (and the other previous eps in which PFT has partaken), their various CBB appearances together, and of course The Travel Bug with August Lindt. EDIT: And man, Matt's and Paul's conversation was great, and I did enjoy hearing Matt laughing during the improv (as I always enjoy hearing Matty B laughing off mic). I also realized that next episode's guest will be getting a Matt question, and I am greatly looking forward to finding out what he asked, considering he regularly must entertain many questions/suggestions/etc by being so entrenched in the improv world. "What's your favorite food?" probably won't be the question. Nothing about pineapple either. haha
  19. The Order of the Keepers? Yes please. I hope Heynong Man is a member. Maybe Mailer Daemon? The possibilities are endless. CBB is rife with heroes and villains.
  20. Just here to heap on additional praise. Loved this ep so much. Every scene had me going back and listening again before moving on to the next one. Bravo, Matty B & Co!!

    Episode 400 - The War on Surfing

    I really enjoy Hot Dog so much. He's so positive, uninformed about most things other than water-skiing or hot dogs, and hilariously biased. But what I like most about him is that he is a character that likes himself and is just trying to make his way and achieve his dreams (which, of course are hilariously slapped down over and over again) coupled with extreme denial of how his life actually is. The heartbreak he exhibits on his ep of the ADPPP when Sean Conroy's Sha Na Na character Slammin' Oliver tells him how life really is as a member of the band (like when he tells Hot Dog that Bowser fell to his knees and cried when their tv show was canceled) is palpablly sad, funny, and altogether an amazing piece of character improv, heightened even further when Hot Dog straight up rejects Oliver's version of events and substitutes his own reality wherein Bowser puts his whole fist in his mouth (because he can do that), then throws the tv exec out the window. I couldn't be happier with the choice of guests for ep 400.

    Episode 400 - The War on Surfing

    3 minutes in and Scott and Jason are already making Hayao Miyazaki references? Yes please.
  23. Holy goddamn shit!!! Murder by Death?! Matty B, you've gotta be kidding me! One of my all-time favs!
