    Paul F. Tompkins Eddie Pepitone Greg Proops... actually I am morbidly curious how anyone known from Whose Line (US or British incarnations! what's Mike McShane up to these days?) does in a long-form improv setting. Edit: Eric the Formerly Paid Intern! You know you wanna.

    Episode 49.5 β€” Minisode 49.5

    As a white person, I hereby give you permission to rip on "Town and Country", as well as the backlog of episodes you've done thus far (excluding Tiptoes, as I do not speak for white little people)

    Yellow Magic Orchestra is legit great, and Rydeen is one of their best songs. All these music videos have reminded me of one of my favorites, the Croatian keytar diva, Belinda Bedeković.

    Episode 187 β€” Finger Chimes

    It was a good theme! Enjoy your fame while it lasts.
  5. Hmm, only since the last best of? It wasn't really that long ago... here we go! Ep. 46 - Hospice gig Ep. 47 - first kiss Q&A and scene Ep. 49 - Seinfeld family Ep. 51 - non-sexual demeaning talk, hair club stand-up, dirty news anchor Ep. 53 - Cosbies, and just edit together all of that woman wanting to see dicks Ep. 54 - Why/Why Not, campaign commercial

    Episode 54 β€” Why or Why Not?

    In the playground of my mind, I am listening to the episode where Eric not only provides the stilted, awkward material for improv scenes, but participates in the scenes as well!

    Episode 4 β€” Mount Rapmore

    I like having the guest involved throughout the whole episode, and Open Mike Eagle was a lot of fun. As a very much rap outsider, it's nice hearing a conversation about what, to people who are deeper entrenched, must be foregone conclusions about who is great and why. I had no idea about the importance of "Illmatic", for example, but I went and listened to it mid-episode and feel that much more educated. I would love, like, a "Hip-Hop 101" list of albums that the hosts think we should absolutely be familiar with. Sure, I could look up "best-of" lists anywhere online (and probably will later), but everybody has their own influences so I'd like to know what Jeff and Nocando hold in esteem. I am listening to -their- podcast, after all! I can't speak for anyone else in the Earwolf audience but, regarding authors, I am pretty much hand-in-hand with Jeff on those truly-great-but-also-funny authors. Needs some Vonnegut in there, though! And if Jeff did want to draw some legitimate parallels between Whitman and 2Pac, I'd sure listen. On the subject of Gangnam Style, first of all it's a pet peeve of mine when people pronounce it "Gang-um" (I'm looking at you, Nocando!) but such things are ultimately fleeting and inconsequential. I love crossover success like that, and I genuinely enjoy the song. Imports have been a huge part of my music collection over the past decade and a half. Lots of Japanese but some Korean and a few Chinese bands. I would be interested to hear what level of exposure Nocando has to the Japanese scene, and his thoughts on rap and hip-hop as an export that has been widely embraced outside the US. On that note, here are the first two Japanese hip-hop songs I ever heard: (translation) (middle verse by Zeebra, vocals by ACO) Edit: Actually damn, listening to these again has made me super-nostalgic and wistful. The power of music!

    Episode 186 β€” New York Mainstays

    The reaction to the catchphrase had me in tears, but the flat-out stupidity of the catchphrase itself didn't hurt. Though, I can't help but hear it as some ridiculous hoity-toity name... Malcolm d'Broccoli Bling Bling, serving the good people of Devonshire at the pleasure of His Royal Majesty.
  9. Teen, teen steam! Gotta let it out... from where, though, I am afraid to ask. Spot-on comments about that backing track. Pitchfork track of the month for sure! I was waiting for something by Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti to kick in.

    That's gotta be the most absurd tagline in film history. I gotta see this.

    Episode 49 β€” Cobra: LIVE!

    Night of a Thousand Stallones! I'm sad June didn't try the voice on for size.

    Episode 186 β€” New York Mainstays

    Is this the fastest turnaround between guest appearances by the same character?

    Episode 51 β€” Too Soon

    So if Mississippi is the asshole of America and Florida the undeniable dick, that must make Alabama the taint.
  14. So, after listening to this episode, I think a good idea would be to ask audience members to just make some noises and the comedians do scenes based on what words they think those noises sounded like.
  15. I can tell this is a best-of episode, because I'm smiling.

    Episode 3 β€” Ratchet

    Wow, and I thought I was a dork.

    Episode 101 β€” Crazzle Dazzles

    I am shocked... SHOCKED! that one of the 5 I's of Twitter isn't "Instagram".

    Episode 18 β€” Pixarfied

    May I humbly suggest that "Two Mega SD's" would have been the better title for this episode.

    Episode 184 β€” Pop and Politics

    I loved this episode because it was basically the fusion of two of my favorite NewsRadio episodes, Aziz was delightful, and James Adomian continues to astonish me not just with the depth of his impersonations but also the quality of his mimicry.

    New Front Page Layout

    My biggest gripe is the mini-queue at the bottom of the page... I always expect that when I click the "More Comedy" etc. links, that it should go to a recent history of posted shows, but instead it goes to the big alphabetical index. Give us access to at least a week of backlog in those links, and I will be quite a bit happier. The site has a clean and is definitely navigable... while you are in no danger of losing a loyal listener over this, I feel the network's recent content explosion, while awesome, has far outpaced the site's humble layout beginnings.
  21. And yet, in four years' time, after things have not in fact turned to shit, they will continue constructing their fiction of victimization and rationalize America's continued existence as the result of their own efforts of resistance against their Socialist Islamist Communist Boogeyman.

    Episode 2 β€” Sad Robot Music

    I am enjoying this show quite a bit... was Nocando subtly auto-tuned during the sad robot discussion, or was I imagining it? Clever if so, concerning (for my mental health state) if not. So I was going through my music collection today and realized that Nocando appears on a track from one of my favorite hip-hop artists, Busdriver (google searching reveals several other collaborative projects between them I'd never heard of! I am so out of the loop). Any chance you could get him in studio? He's one of the most unique guys I've ever heard, with a sensibility that would be right at home on this show. Lots of sardonic commentary on the hip-hop scene densely packed into most of his songs.
  23. Make it so when you mouse over his picture, it switches between moustache and no-moustache.
  24. Here's the Letterman appearance they were talking about... not as spazzy dancing as I was expecting, but clip delivers on staring-into-the-camera-osity: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J29Fz5Ndz6M
