    Episode 320 β€” Charging Kids

    I agree about being short making people feel safe in case they fall over. That's why physicists say the polite & scientifically accurate way to refer to short people is Low-Potential-Energy-Americans.

    Episode 96.5 β€” Minisode 96.5

    As for how I'd like to die in a horror movie: rather than the last I want to be the first to die. In fact, I want to be the guy who dies off screen before the movie starts- the guy who becomes a kick-ass ghost and haunts the fuck out of the rest of the characters. Yeah! *finger guns* Pew! Pew!

    Episode 223 β€” Everybody Lives, Raymond

    I have always been a little ashamed of how much I love ELO. As wimpy they often sound, check out "Queen of the Hours" which is very dark for ELO.
  4. Damn Austin made me like a country-ish song. Dammit.

    Episode 179 β€” God

    I have no problem at all with Pete's laugh because it's absolutely genuine. He's aware that it annoys some folks, and I think he's said that he tried to mute it somewhat but it didn't work. My understanding is that now he embraces its abrasiveness. PFT's laugh is something altogether different. It fills me with utter joy every time I hear it. It's like an angel descending from heaven to kiss a podcast episode on the forehead and saying "this bit is going well; please continue." He tries to be off mic when he does it, but his laugh starts off so explosive (because it surprises him, I think) that he can't hide it. The fact that it's a little muffled and off mic makes it even more delightful. He's like a kid puking in the direction of the bathroom because he felt it coming on just a half second before it happened. The gesture is appreciated but altogether ineffective. Gross analogy. Sorry.

    Episode 96 β€” Monkey Shines

    The best tangent ever on this show. "It's not that they're 'goddamn monkeys.' They're just monkeys." I feel for June on this one. That kind of thing can be frustrating, but she seemed to keep her cool. I wonder if it was an icy drive home for Paul & June, though.
  7. Pavement is grad school rock, so it only shows up on the music-to-GRE-scores chart.

    Kristen Schaal #219

    I hope Kevin's day turned out better. They all seemed a little down. Great episode.

    Episode 316 β€” In the Larp Run

    Dane Cook is our generation's Gallagher (or is it Gallagher 2?). Even hating him seems dated and cliche. But I can't listen to him- not on a train or in a plane. Maybe with a fox, though.
  11. My guess is that ripping off Stairway to Heaven is probably a bigger devaluation than giving away an album for free. Also, the drummer? In a duo where the singer basically does the work of four people, the guy who barely does one always seems to be the one shooting his mouth off about other musicians.
  12. It's the lads from the lads from liverpool pool! I really need to do something productive with my life: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VYrPsz-3as

    Episode 315 β€” Sandwich Therapy

    After a long, hot shower the bat squints at the mirror, says "squeak, squeak," then rubs the steamy mirror clean with a washcloth, says "squeak, squeak" again, then he smiles and says "hello, handsome!"
  14. Buffet The Vampire Slayer Wasting away again in Sunnyvale
  15. There is a thing that exists which is not my cup of tea. So, I decree: no tea. No tea for anyone.

    Episode 310 β€” Little Button Puss

    In the not-so-distant future, there will be a version of "Will It Blend?" called "Can I Fuck That?" in which people will debate whether or not an object has the requisite holes or knobs for sexual activity. First episode: K9. Answer: Yes, oh yes. Look at those Kayne shades K9's wearing? He's ready to go.
  18. The Barkening coming soon
  19. "If it's not accent aigu, go fuck yoursΓ©lf." - Mr. Paul F. Tompkins I want to travel to the alt universe where this is a commercially-available T-shirt, buy it, and return to my home timestream.

    Episode 306 β€” Project Funway

    My young son said this to me today: "Don't you hate it when you're picking your nose and just you pull out a booger, you look at your finger and it's gone? It's like one of them escaped! You're looking around, where did it go?" I was very impressed. Then I realized that it wasn't my son but my 40-year-old second cousin who said it, and it didn't seem as cute.

    Thanks! 56:50 on that episode

    Episode 91 β€” The 1st Annual Howdies Pt. 1

    I've listened to them all (I think) but somehow I can't place the one segment of "wig talk" about a woman having red hair stuffed under a short blonde wig. Anybody catch that? It sounds like a live episode but I've checked them all.

    Episode 147 β€” Old Dread Ben

    Paul's anchor vest is a Jaws moist dream come to life. That's one dapper shark.

    Episode 60 β€” Scott Aukerman, Co-Founder of Earwolf

    It's a little ironic that the episode on SoundCloud breaks around 15 minutes in. The download works fine, though.
