    But with this guy's context, you have to think it sounds pretty bad, right? If this was a salesperson or a motivational speaker, then that's one thing. When the guy's entire object is to get in with those 'pieces of ass' (respectfully)....then it's a little worrisome.


    I mean, why does he even need to worry about this when he's got that crazy strong 'kite' analogy to lead with?


    I said that it was probably bad in context, and that I didn't listen to the episode, or agree with pick up stuff. I just feel like there's nothing wrong with that statement in a vacuum, and your post made it seem like that sentence was your breaking point.


    I was just trying to clarify.



    Ummmmmm you know Belle is a fictional character, right? This is not a great example. Of course anyone can change their mind about anything (I used to not like eating mushrooms and now I do), that sentence picked out alone is a truism, but I'm not sure why that matters.


    Anyway, I am glad everyone thinks Ross Jeffries is a scrote.

    A universal fairy tale, wherein a character changes her mind in regard to her feelings about another character is a bad example? Okay. That's why I also said that I've changed my mind about people.


    Luke's post mattered to me because that sentence was singled out as evidence of the guy's scumminess... But there's nothing wrong with that quote if you don't know the context. Everyone is allowed to change their minds and first impressions aren't everything.


    All I'm saying is that context is as important as content... Even though nobody is arguing otherwise. I just posted that for myself.

  2. "A woman's first response isn't always her real answer."


    Whoa. ANNNNNNDDDDD stopping the podcast.


    I'm not defending this guy, I don't do that pick up stuff, and I didn't even listen to the episode... But that statement is true, in a vacuum. Every person's first response isn't always that they think later. They have a right to change their minds when more information becomes available to them. I've met plenty of people I disliked at first and was ultimately fine with, and vice versa.


    For example, woman like Belle might be freaked out by the Beast in Beauty and the Beast, but falls in love with him. Her first response wasn't what she thought by the end.


    However, applying that statement to something scummy and date rapey in a 'no means yes' kind of way is a whole other can of worms. (And I'm sure that's what this guy meant.)


    I just feel like that sentence alone isn't that bad, it's the intent with which it's said that determines that.

  3. As a Maine resident I must call attention to the fact that there is no way a crocodile would survive here.


    All crocs are tropical and can't deal with the cold... Let alone the fact that Aroostook County (the setting) is THE MOST NORTHERN COUNTY IN THE STATE.


    The average annual temperature is about 40 degrees, and under freezing for 4 straight months during the winter. The lake would be frozen for about half of the year.


    Unless Betty White is keeping it nice and toasty in a special set up in a barn or something, there's no way it would live for years. It might make it through one summer if it arrived at the right time.




    I listened a few days ago so I might have forgotten something, but here's my back story. Roll with me on this one...


    So, if we're in this world where the croc could survive up there, how about the fact that they can live to be incredibly old? I'm talking up to 70-100 years old.


    What if it followed her husband home after he was 'fishing' AKA fighting in the Pacific during WWII? It followed his ship all the way back to the U.S., through the Panama Canal and up the east coast. At the time of this movie there were still a couple naval bases in Maine.


    Having completed his service he was discharged. He immediately went to his land in Aroostook and settled down. (I'd have to consult maps to be sure, but theoretically there should be a lake near enough to a river where the croc could follow the husband. Because he obviously took his own personal boat from the shipyard to his home.)


    So, the croc also settles at this lake and lived for 50 years; becoming an ever-increasing burden on their lives and a constant, monstrous reminder of the atrocities of war. A manifestation of PTSD if you will.

  4. I surely didn't dislike these episodes; I just feel they don't demonstrate the things that make Comedy Bang Bang so unique (or at least the things that I love about Comedy Bang Bang).


    Not to start a whole thing or sound like I'm attacking you but, what?!


    Andy Daly, PFT and Wompler episodes comprising the top 5 means everything is right with the world. They epitomize the show to me. They are dark and strange, yet silly and absurd; there's both continuity and freedom. I'm not sure how it could get more unique.


    Andy Daly a stone cold genius. Most of the time you won't hear something that good scripted, and he did it live. It's impressive to just talk as two characters, let alone a dozen, while being forced into things by Zouks and Scott. That was undeniably great.

  5. Holy shit, that opening scene was incredible. They built up to the offensive joke so much, and then Matt went real hard on the specifics in a way that made it seem impossible to pay off, but Gabrus totally knocked it out of the park.


    I've only gotten throught that scene and Gabrus landed that so well that I had to come post here. I was thinking there might be too much build up to be satisfying, but he nailed that. I laughed hard.

  6. Aimee Mann is pretty and talented; heck, I'd even go so far as to call her pretty talented!


    I had no clue her and Ted Leo just released an album. Weirdly enough, I first saw Leo on the Human Giant 24 hour marathon when he played 'Me And Mia' and improvised when his amp switched off: Check it out here. I was sold. (Scheer appears to be sitting at the table in two photos for this episode too.)




    Christmas and Anniversary episodes always kick it up a notch. I couldn't ask for more. Thanks Earwolf, Choctaw, and the guests.

  7. She also mentioned she was a libertarian, so she probably meant it...


    Hahaha, the libertarian part totally threw me. I literally said, "What?" when she dropped that.


    For a second I could sort of understand her trying to distance herself from the feminist descriptor since a lot of people online just say, "Feminists are assholes"... But then I thought about how she said she would approach the guy on the cell phone submissively. It seems like there's a weird male/female dynamic going on in her brain on top of all this other be nice/put people in their place stuff.


    That lady is all over the place, and honestly she tired me out with the voraciousness with which she spoke.




    Besser trying to get her to stay in a scene was hilarious.

  8. I really liked the Betsy and Sanz dynamic in this one.




    Keep doing what you want with the show.


    In my everyday life I generally don't listen to the kind of music that's in the musical episodes, but it's solid. That style works for the show because these singer/songwriter guys put real stories and emotions into their songs, and that translates into cool scenes.


    Case Closed is what it is. It'll never be a totally fair discussion or debate but it doesn't need to be. I like angry Besser scenes that come from it. The Sexy Robot Warning is all you need.


    People that bitch can fast forward. It's not like holding a button down is taxing.

    If you must know, wheelchair girl threatened me via almost every way I can be reached on the internet. It was scary and fucked up.


    That's messed up. I really didn't like that gimmick or crazy person (or both?), and assumed they just got bored and left. I think I read half of one of their posts and went, "Welp, that's that..."


    The crazy quotient is really low on these forums and I enjoy that. So's keeps doin' what yous guys is doin'.
