    Monkey Shines

    This stands out as particularly insane among the countless awful horror movies I watched as a kid, having had free reign of my parents' video store. Imagine my delight when the Upright Citizens Brigade tackled the terror of helper monkeys a decade later.

    Which movies have you seen/own?

    I've seen one in the theater (Batman & Robin), two on cable (Godzilla, The Devil's Advocate) and two at my parents' pre-Blockbuster-era independent video store (Over The Top, Howard The Duck). I own none of them.
  3. If you ignore the hour-long digression in which yet another listener proved himself totally incapable of defending a point, perhaps. On the other hand, "MOM I'M ON THE PHONE!"

    Episode 140 — Scotty Boy, My Special Boy

    There wasn't one second of this episode that I didn't feel like smothering Armen with a pillow. Mostly as an act of mercy. Mostly.

    Episode 236 — Murderer Heaven

    Three reasons come to mind: Contractual: Live episodes are removed from VPN's YouTube channel so they can instead be hosted on Earwolf's own channel. Technical: There have been occasional technical difficulties in the live broadcast — audio/video sync issues, sound mixing, connection drops, etc. — that have been fixed in the final uploads. Financial: In a thread from a few months ago, someone from Earwolf said they purposely delay the video releases by 10 days to avoid cannibalizing downloads of the audio podcasts. Since (I assume) Earwolf makes most of their revenue selling ads against the audio podcasts, and ad revenue is contingent on downloads, they want to ensure their numbers remain high.

    Episode 139 — Boring Kanye West

    FYI: You* can watch Animal Odd Couples in its entirety for free on PBS.org. Netflix not required. * (Possibly) depending on your geographic location

    Episode 236 — Murderer Heaven

    HAVIN' A SUMMAH 2013!

    What can I say? Plans changed (again) and the spare ticket was suddenly re-un-available. Welcome to Seattle, where no one can make up their goddamned mind and you're lucky if half of the people who RSVP for an event actually show up.

    Honestly, I'm amazed her name isn't "Arkansas".

    Episode 235 — Concert Buddies

    ♫♪ Heyyy bros! As a devoted life-long gamer, I can confidently state that you are turning a throwaway comment from two extraordinarily busy gentlemen into an indictment of your entire lifestyle. Chill.

    Episode 68 — Over The Top: LIVE!

    What exactly is an "arm wrestler"?

    Episode 235 — Concert Buddies

    Nah, DWDAK's first episode dropped on 4-20-2012.

    Episode 235 — Concert Buddies

    They also neglected to mention "Dining with Doug and Karen" in Scottrick's round-up of Doug's podcast empire, which means this episode may have been recorded before April 2012. Truly, a treasure unearthed from the expansive Comedy Bang Bang vault*. * Not to be confused with the Comedy Bang Bang Fry Vault, which is not (as some might assume) used to store comedy, but rather to safeguard french fries.† † And occasionally icicles.
  15. For future casting purposes, Earwolf's own Kyle Dunnigan does . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfdK5ZXd4tM&t=3m38s

    Whooch LIVE on VPN - 7/25

    APRIL: The junk's out of practice. HOWARD: Jesus, Kulap!

    Whooch LIVE on VPN - 7/25

    Howard appears to be wearing short shorts from a Hooters waitress. There's such a thing as having TOO much Summah, Howard.

    Whooch LIVE on VPN - 7/25

    I hope this is the week Howard takes his co-host on a tour of Dragon Manor, is visited by the real Lee in-studio, and reveals his age. THAT will teach Kulap to abandon the show!

    Episode 234 — Changing The Bandage

    I surmise that if advertisements began to appear in the middle of comments on the Earwolf Forums, it would devalue the conversations, alienate existing commenters, and discourage new listeners from participating in the community. However, this concern is predicated on the notion that our existing conversations have intrinsic value and participating in the community is actually worthwhile, both of which are highly questionable assertions given the current state of discourse. After a great deal of personal reflection, I would rather the message boards be shuttered and the podcasts discontinued altogether than suffer one more second of advertisement from these cynical comedians and their greedy corporate masters. My fingers have grown gnarled and broken from the effort of fast forwarding 30 seconds every hour. I will no longer fall prey to the siren song of hundreds of hours of free entertainment per year.

    Episode 234 — Changing The Bandage

    Lukas, stop framining your statements as if they represent the entire Comedy Bang Bang audience. You are putitng words into our mouths. And because of that we should like it or fuck off is bullshit because thats not what is happening and doesn't really take into account the way the relationship has changed. And no, I have NOT been huffing Scotchgard in a Red Roof Inn dumpster since 8AM.

    Episode 138 — Cosplay Jaywalking

    I think he meant "HERON". Squawk the gates!

    HDTGM All-Stars

    While I haven't seen Beyond The Mat yet, it's been near the top of my "to-watch" queue since being discussed on Jonah Raydio. Particularly: Apropos of nothing: Welcome back, Shariq.

    Episode 233 — Royal Watching

    Whereas I took Byron's gravelly muttering (after he revealed that Kate sleeps au naturel) as a hint that he would eventually be revealed as Don Dimelo in disguise.

    Episode 232 — LIVE from San Diego Comic-Con

    ATTABOY to Engineer Frank for not only recording and uploading this episode in the span of a few hours, but also being Hot Dog's designated driver. TSK-TSK to Engineer Frank for forgetting to activate the Blood Alcohol Limit filter on the mixing board.
