    Bill Burr #212

    Burr is known as this angry acerbic guy. I never expected him to be this gracious about other comedians. I'm sure you've seen the O&A clip where he wins over a riotous Philly audience by shitting on them mercilessly. It's definitely his "I ain't scared of you motherfuckers" moment.

    Episode 303 β€” Puttering Around

    I'm very glad they were so fastidious about closing their verbal parentheses on this episode. People think it's a joke, but if they don't close them the pod might not parse properly on your mp3 player. You would hear up to the first open paren, then it would skip to the next closed paren. This is almost as bad as the Who Charted episode with all the verbal curly brackets.

    Episode 90 β€” Sharknado 2: The Second One

    Also, Mark McGrath was excited about jumping through the 42 because he's a huge fan of Douglas Adams. However, "Sugar Ray" is not a known h2g2 reference.

    Episode 89.5 β€” Minisode 89.5

    Nic Cage as an imaginary childhood friend would be incredible. "We're going to steal the Jefferson Memorial!" "No, Nic Cage. You're going to get me in trouble AGAIN!" "You don't understand. Everything is riding on this! We must get to the core of the sun in the next 15 minutes or everyone is doomed!"

    Episode 299 β€” Don’t Hack the SAC

    Brian "Sour Puss" Eno is slated to produce Weird Al's next post-contract album. The centerpiece will be a six minute ambient polka odyssey about how he feels nothing. Seriously, Mr. Yankovic needs to write lyrics for "Music for Airports."

    Episode 10 β€” Fuego

    I'm so chill, let's have a competition to decide who's more chill. I'll totally win because I'm so chill.

    Episode 298 β€” The Hotwives of Orlando

    Back when Perfect Strangers was a hit show and Yakov Smirnov was headlining, I remember an angry guy I know grumbling, "they come to this country and they steal our catchphrases!" Don't be ridiculous whata country!?

    Episode 297 β€” Canadian Apparel

    The "Boys" Mr. Scotterman was shouting to are actually Heavy D's former posse. They still wear the colorful raincoats from the "Now That We've Found Love" video and tend to cry a lot. Scott gives them errands to run to distract them from their grief.

    Episode 296 β€” Taking the Bladder Out

    Q: Why did the dieting cannibal eat Harry Reid and John Boehner? A: Because all politics is low cal.

    Episode 204 β€” The Zeit'MothaFuckin'Geist

    "The Wolves Are Coming" sounds like the porn version of Frozen. Shut up, kids! Daddy needs to concentrate!
  12. This just occurred to me: If comedy=tragedy+time, then by the transitive property time=comedy-tragedy therefore rotational terminal velocity= 2Ο€r/(comedy-tragedy)
  13. I watch each episode of Playing House twice to atone for having missed most of BFF.
  14. That's a line from an Ayn Rand book about podcasting. Just before she died, she predicted the invention of the iPod and that all the world's super-rich, super-capable people would run away to an island and start podcasts. Mr. Olliver Podcast is the Marc Maron of objectivism.
  15. Writing a book as therapy isn't always a good idea. After writing two I got super depressed because I'd written two books (and nobody wanted to read either one). I couldn't even goad my wife into reading the second one because the first one was so silly.

    Episode 182 β€” Gandalf Vs. Snape

    If Arman had a sit-com there would be whole episodes about a to-do list with one thing on it (1. pick up the dry cleaning) and the other 20 minutes details how and why he can't get that done. Then he runs into Matt, his reluctant surrogate father, who works very hard not to tell Arman how disappointed he is in Arman's inability to pick up the dry cleaning. "I'll try harder tomorrow. Well, I'll try harder to try harder if you know... uh." I'll be called "I'm a mess!"

    Episode 289 β€” The Exorcism of Cake Boss

    Psychiatrist: Tell me about what is troubling you. Patient: Well, it's my mother, doc. My whole childhood she was withholding. Psychiatrist: I see. She must be really good at riddles, then.
  18. Also, holy shit I used to watch Sven Ghouli every saturday for Creature Feature on WFLD (I think).
  19. Joe Jackson is one of my all time favorites. Fuck "steppin' out," though. Listen to Big World 50 times in a row then come talk to me, son.

    Episode 286 β€” Time Bobby 3

    On my gravestone it will say "Ziiiip! It's me! I was lying the whole time!"
  21. A U2-related news item from 2025: As is usually the case with U2 records, the final push to finish Juggernaut required the aging band members to spend twelve to eighteen hours a day in the recording studio fine-tuning performances and mixes. The resulting strain left the band's guitarist with a greatly diminished immune system, after which he fell into a pneumonia-related coma for several months. However, due to his loyalty to the band as well as several unbreakable contractual obligations, he continued to tour with the group, strapped to a gurney and identified onstage as "The Vedge."
  22. This is no way to talk if you're angling for T-shirts, guys.
  23. This episode nearly made a reference to noted adventure author Cliff Hanger (pronounced Hang-yay because he's French). His books are the kind you can't put down- and I don't mean that hyperbolically. Remember in Crank (and Crank 2) how Jason Statham kept having to get charged up or he'd die? Well, Hanger's books are printed with a special skin-absorptive poison on the odd numbered pages and an antidote on the even numbered ones. If you stop reading at chapter-ending moment of peril you could very well die. Only when you finish the book and wash your hands thoroughly are you assured of survival.
