    Duck Soup

    Paul and Amy brought up what modern comedians were carrying on the tradition of the Marx brothers and I gotta ask, does anyone else think of Stella when they think of the modern Marx Brothers. I mean, the Stella live shows are one of the closest things to vaudeville I can think of in the last few decades and they have the kind of anarchistic comedy values that Paul, Amy, and Conan talk about. Also, Michael Ian Black is the first person I think of anytime anyone mentions a comedian looking right into the camera.

    Will Howl come to Windows Phone?

    I highly doubt it, but I would consider getting the premium if it did. Anyone know? Anyone else want it to?
  3. Well, now we know why he's called Boknowbos...

    26 We Can't Dance Together

    Yeah, I am kinda sad that its leaving Earwolf, I really thought that it was a joke at first. I will stay subscribed through iTunes and enjoy listening to it, but I swear sometimes just having that Earwolf tag at the end of a podcast just makes it that much better. Its a placebo, I know, but Earwolf made me love podcasts like I do. Regardless, I'm sure further episodes will continue the high quality, and I'm definitely a fan and will continue to be.

    Dragonball Evolution (2009)

    I would love to hear them review this movie. Even fans of DB (which I constantly debate with myself if I am one, definitely enjoy the manga and some of the games) will admit that the original story isn't that great. This movie took that story and made it 100 times worse. We would get to hear all about how "next level bonkers" this movie is. I would hope that the guest had at least some knowledge of the source material, but even if not, it would be great.
  6. ... to celebrate the release of Hot Tub Time Machine 2?

    Episode 328 — Beatle Heaven

    I think it's good to look at Emo like Ska... in waves. 1st wave being things like Rites of Spring and Embrace, 2nd wave starting with bands like Cap'n Jazz and Braid and ending with Saves the Day and the Get Up Kids transitioning into the third wave, which is stuff like Fallout Boy or My Chemical Romance. I love the first two waves, but am not a fan of the 3rd wave, so maybe this is just a way for me to be snobby and differientiate.

    Episode 328 — Beatle Heaven

    Man, I was already apologetic for this, no need to make me feel like an extra dick. Also, I don't think I was slamming him... just because I think someone is more talented than another person doesn't mean that I don't think the original is super talented. Granted, I worded it wrong, but I put Tim Kinsella light years above most people that I find super talented.
  9. While I usually enjoy and respect the musicians that appear on this podcast, this is the first time I was actually excited and a fan pre show. Let's get Busdriver and Nocando on to!
  10. ... the show where the points don't matter and the matter don't point.

    Episode 328 — Beatle Heaven

    I could be mistaken , but it seems like a good deal of the music ones are bonus episodes. They are a gift, you don't have to listen to it. Personally, I love the music episodes, even ones where I don't like the musician (which as far as I can tell was only the Interpol one, but he was fine as a guest). In fact, I was sad that the tears for fears one wasn't on the best of.

    I didn't see the jk at first and was going to say, ahh a ghost. But then I realized that their mother is still alive, so I failed everywhere.

    Episode 328 — Beatle Heaven

    Wait, are you one of them? As brothers, I've heard them talk in interviews that they have a healthy competition anyways and I think Mike gets generally more favorable receptions, so if he read that and it hurt his feelings I am sorry (not sarcasm), but I do truly believe Tim Kinsella is one of the greatest creative minds of our time, and he is too often overlooked or looked down upon.

    Episode 328 — Beatle Heaven

    I'd like to think fans of good music and good comedy overlap in general. Not always the case, but then again, as previously pointed out, that's all relative anyways, but sure, most people I know that enjoy 2nd wave emo bands like those you listed like CBB.

    Episode 328 — Beatle Heaven

    Sorry for being opinionated. To me, a song that is just a pretty melody is like a painting of flowers. I like American Football, but I think Tim's writing is by far the greatest thing to come out of that whole group of musicians, and yes, I am taking into account how amazing of a guitarist Victor Villarreal is. But yes, it is just an opinion. Still, bring on Tim Kinsella!

    Episode 328 — Beatle Heaven

    Wow, this episode gives me hope, since Mike Kinsella (American Football) was on CBB maybe his way more talented brother Tim (Cap'n Jazz, Owls, Joan of Arc) could be on. I would love if one of my favorite songwriters ever was on CBB.

    Episode 301 — They're Twins Jonah!

    Why did the Marker go to school? Because it was a write of passage.

    Episode 5 — White Rappers

    I just want to say, that one month after Blondie released the album with Rapture, The Clash released Sandinista, which has more than one song where Joe Strummer raps, but most noticeably... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcHL8efKKPE
