  1. Hey fellow Blastronauts! I thought people might be into this - I had Dave on my podcast Beginnings this week. On the show, I talk to writers and comics and musicians I admire about their childhoods and earliest creative memories. But we also get into a lot of other topics like literary pretension and some sciencey stuff about exaptations. I think people here will dig it. Or if not, feel free to tell me to take a hike. http://beginningspod.tumblr.com/post/103123714865/its-time-for-beginnings-the-podcast-where-writer

    Andy Daly on the Beginnings podcast

    Ah cool - glad I wasn't intruding, and thanks for the kind words, both of you!
  3. Let me preface this by saying that I feel like garbage for not really posting on the forums, but then coming in and being like, "Check this thing out that I did." BUT it's Andy Daly, and he's incredible, so. I thought this would be of interest. On my show Beginnings, I talk to writers, artists, musicians and comedians about their childhoods, and Andy's on the latest episode. We talk about his relationship with his parents, how that informs his own parenting, and how living in his imagination for most of his life is liberating, but also it makes real life difficult. It's fun/interesting stuff.
  4. Also, I've posted before...shouldn't I have more posts???
  5. As usual, I feel like a bag of shit for posting this on a forum I read, but rarely contribute to BUT I still thought it might be of interest to people, so I am swallowing my shame (and will talk about it tonight at therapy). ANYWAY! We recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of the live version of our podcast Beginnings (monthly at UCB East in New York) with a super-packed show featuring Reggie Watts, Chris Gethard, Opus Moreschi (head writer of Colbert Report), Marnie Stern (indie rock on Kill Rock Stars), and Andrew W.K. We had a blast, and the episode's now up online, if other people would like to check it out. http://wrestlingteam...nth-at-ucb-east Cool, thanks, and hope you listen!

    Episode 6.3 — Sketches: Day 3

    Everyone’s missing Dirk’s main point. Is the last episode going to be six minutes long? Because that would make me furious.

    Especially our new foley podcast “Cracklins!”

    Episode 2.3 — Theme and Intro: Day 3

    Adam, that was no guess. A P.I. has been following all the contestants around since this thing started. That’s how they knew we recorded our show in a bathtub filled with bugs.
  9. I live in New York City, a city in which you can find literally anything you’d want, from autographed 1977 Rollie Fingers baseball cards to black market livers. Yet no matter what newsstand I go to, I cannot find Orbit Fruit Punch gum, a gum I was extremely excited about when I learned of its existence via this show. Is this a fraud perpetrated upon the listening public by Howard and Kulap? What do you have to gain by getting my hopes up only to dash them on the shores of a non-existent but delicious-sounding gum? Are my desires merely a plaything for rich and famous podcasters, who are sick of the baubles their wealth has bought them and must now get off on destroying the dreams of commoners? Where is my gum? P.S. I have included a SASE. If this gum does indeed exist, please include one slice so that I may know the taste of paradise, if only for a brief time, a respite from my own Orbit Fruit Punch-less hell.

    @Brendan – let me just clarify further, I only meant to offend those people whose dreams have already died and are now rotting in the walls of their souls, where they were dry-walled in long ago.

    Hey dudes! Just so we're clear - I was not making fun of office drones. Just office drones that are dead inside.
