  1. Starring Catherine Mary Stewart (Bibi from The Apple), Kelli Maroney (Cindy from Fast Times at Ridgemont High), and Robert Beltran (Chakotay from Star Trek: Voyager), this movie is a must-see for lovers of 80's movies. There are some ridiculously stupid moments, but what campy 80's movie would be complete without those? It's actually a really enjoyable movie and I recommend it to anyone in these forums. I first heard about it listening to an old episode of Improv 4 Humans when Amy Poehler brought it up, then when I saw the trailer I knew I had to watch it and recommend it for HDTGM. Here's the trailer:
  2. For your consideration, Meet The Applegates. http://www.imdb.com/...ay/vi2844655897 Please do this movie! I remember seeing it when I was very young and it really made an impression on me, and Ed Begley Jr. (the father, Richard P. Applegate) would make a fantastic guest. I'm genuinely surprised this hasn't already been recommended, and I really hope you'll consider it! I haven't watched it recently, but I definitely will now. It looks insane but I remember it being pretty entertaining. Also, it's by the director of Hudson Hawk.
  3. Did anybody see Gemberling on Modern Family? I think he was great and I hope he returns, and between this and playing John Belushi in the upcoming David Wain film I really hope he becomes a household name. I hope he becomes so popular that his defense of bestiality comes back to haunt him! Then he'll know he really made it.
  4. Before compiling this list, please listen to every foam corner. Twice. Now you have my answer. More quotes from various shows are forthcoming, I know there are some good Beverly quotes in my memory bank, and some of Gabrus's micro-aggressions from I4H. There are also some Spontaneanation moments that are so insane and perfect, and if some lines from June and Jason (particularly June) don't make it on the list then there's really no point in doing this at all.

    Episode 473 - Tight Tort

    I'm confident that Alan Buchanan and Bob Ducca would get along famously, and let's face it: Bob Ducca almost definitely suffers from Wet Crotch Syndrome. I wouldn't be surprised if the two of them are related somehow.
  6. I agree completely that it has nothing to do with their performance, however the observation also had nothing to do with the fact that the guest was female. Making it all about her gender is actually far more sexist than saying something negative in the first place, which isn't necessarily sexist at all. And in any case, the vitriol from this community towards anyone who says anything negative is far worse than saying a guest's picture is annoying. I do regret saying it, as I've said, however the backlash has been overblown and in some cases just insane. I shouldn't have been surprised that someone would needlessly bring it up again when Kate Berlant is a guest, but it's times like this that some members in the community here just have me like:
  7. This is a perfect example of how batshit crazy some of you are. I say a guest's picture is annoying, you imply that I hate myself and I have a terrible life. I hadn't even thought of any of that again until now but it's nice to know that me, a random stranger on the internet, and my slight against a female podcast guest's picture is evidently eating away at you. Do you have a Tumblr page for fans of Kate Berlant? I'd love to join in on the fun.
  8. The episodes are slowly but surely catching up to the present day. Personally, I hope the recordings and releases both keep their current pace and we eventually hear some monologues, intros and improv from the future.

    Episode 155 - Airborne: LIVE!

    I think I'm starting to like Cincinnati. "It should be called EarthBound" One of my favourite games of all time.

    Paywall Special Announcement

    I'd personally much rather have tons of ads than a paywall, and I'm also hoping that the paywall doesn't prove to be profitable. I imagine they'll actually see the amount of new listeners decline rapidly, as I know when I got into the podcast the first thing I did was go back and listen to the older episodes so I could listen to the show progress. Same with Comedy Bang Bang and Improv 4 Humans; I'd go back and listen to the earliest episodes that had guests I love or otherwise sounded interesting, then I just started listening to all of them. People who aren't okay with the paywall are being called cheap and entitled, but I don't see it that way at all, I simply believe that removing the archives is a failing strategy and if they want more subscribers then they just need to keep making great content on Howl. On the other hand, this is why I think Paul is smart for fighting for what he did. Now new listeners can go back and listen to many older episodes, listen to the howdies, etc., without being forced to subscribe to a service that is still practically unusable on Android devices.

    Paywall Special Announcement

    He might not say it here, but I believe it's extremely obvious that Paul really fought for this. I can't express how much I appreciate it, and my already very high respect for Paul just went through the roof. This was somewhat painful to listen to because I could tell, or at least I either rightly or wrongly perceived, that Paul still isn't entirely happy about this but, as he said, he's being a team player. Thanks Paul, I already knew you appreciate your fans but this is really going above and beyond in the face of corporate machinations. Also, it's good to know that Howl subscribers are paying for engineer Cody's health benefits!
  12. Will the episodes older than six months disappear from the Earwolf website/soundcloud too? If not, who really cares? EDIT: Oops, nevermind. I see now that they are already gone... I guess I'll have to go elsewhere to listen to my favourite episodes, since the widow Howl app is absolute garbage on Android.

    Listening > Reading

    I was listening to Joe Rogan's podcast while at work today and his guest, professor Jordan Peterson, said something so interesting that I had to write it down and now I want to share it here. For the record, he said dozens of interesting things in this podcast, but this part is very relevant to "general podcasting" and so I want to post it here. "People are much more naturally attuned to listening than they are to reading, because we've only been reading... roughly speaking, in any large numbers, for 500 years, it's a blink of an eye, whereas we've been listening for a very, very long period of time." I think this is a great endorsement of podcasts and audio content in general, and it's a very interesting way to think of our inclination towards listening rather than reading or staring at a screen. Of course another main difference that he briefly mentions is how you can also do many other things while listening to something, whereas reading requires your full attention. Even though I'm not very good at multitasking, I love podcasts because I can do many other things while listening, learning, laughing and enjoying the audio experience. What do you think of listening vs reading, fellow podcast and Earwolf enthusiasts? This post has been brought to you by Audible.com.

    Best of 2016 Pt. 3

    I've had the Berenstein Bears books since I was a child, and I was reading one of them to my niece maybe two or three weeks before discovering the story about it being an A and not an E online. Even though I grew up with the books, watched the TV show, and was reading one of the books only weeks earlier, I would have sworn on my life and bet any amount of money that it was Berenstein and not Berenstain. I would've called anyone claiming otherwise a damn fool, and very likely challenged them to fisticuffs if they did not concede. Imagine my reality-shattering shock when I went upstairs to find the book I had read to my niece only to discover an A where an E should be. I'm convinced it has to do with a time traveler on Ellis Island accidentally distracting someone and causing a clerical error, or a phase shift between alternate realities causing some inconsistencies in both universes and some confusion among sentient beings. Those are really the only two logical explanations, aside from the far-fetched and bogus theory of widespread human error causing a common misconception.

    Best of 2016 Pt. 1

    I want Scott and Paul to know that they are sincerely two of my favourite human beings. Me and my friend went to see them in Toronto but couldn't hang around to meet them because the line was huge and our girlfriends were already waiting for us when the show ended, but damn I just want a chance to tell them to their faces how much they really mean to me, without sounding like a crazy person. For the last three years, these Best Ofs have been a holiday tradition for me and a couple of friends, and I hope that tradition continues for many years to come. Both Scott and Paul are my heroes, Scott basically just because he's Scott and also facilitates so much comedy gold, and PFT because he's one of the best comedians alive and quite possibly the best showman I've ever seen when it comes to live comedy shows. Together, they are one of the best things to listen to. Also, Pepe is not a symbol of white supremacy. Obviously not in origin, but also not in its common use online (even on Reddit and 4chan). That was bullshit from the Clinton campaign and even the Anti-Defamation League recognizes that it's only bigoted when used in a bigoted context, like depicting Pepe as Hitler.

    Episode 463 - 2016 Holiday Spectacular

    Everybody was so funny, and Adomian's Jesse Ventura is alongside Cake Boss with my favourite podcast characters of all-time, but something about Gino constantly ribbing Scott for monetizing everything and being all about that cash really made it my favourite part of this jam-packed episode. Jon has brought it up on I4H too, like the Kulap socks and shit like that, and I felt like I could sense Scott getting frustrated by it and I think it just encourages Jon/Gino more. At least his micro and macro aggressions aren't just based on gender, race and sexual preference; they include money too! Truly an amazing episode, in fact I have a bunch of editing to do that doesn't include audio so I'm going in for a second listen right now. Sidenote: please offer Adomian a conspiracy podcast on Earwolf. It would be a Christmas miracle.

    Episode 14 - Edward Snowden: The Whistleblower

    I never thought I'd listen to this podcast, but here I am listening to this podcast. What else have you got, universe circa 2016? I can take it.

    Episode 459 - Giamatti Gives Thanks

    Yeah, but I bet Scott could make the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs.
  19. Really great, I loved the short film. I need to create a gif of Matt being shot by the machine gun in slow motion. This made me think of a series of videos called We Were Behind The Scenes where Matt (and special guests?) explore some behind the scenes movie magic in every episode.

    Ask Paul!

    Thanks Paul! If it happens, I will undoubtedly be in attendance for Spontaneanation in Toronto and for any stand-up that you do around here. I was really upset that I had to miss you as Cake Boss, one of my all-time favourite podcast characters, but seeing you as Garry Marshall the next night made up for it. If I somehow knew in advance that you were going to be Cake Boss for the Thursday night show, I would have probably risked losing my job just to come see it. Well, regardless of the 300-person thing, I hope to see you here sometime in the not-too-distant future! Maybe the stars will align someday soon. As for the pins, now I have another reason to be jealous of Spontaneanation guests. The face pins creep me out a bit (not just yours... All of them) but I'll definitely consider the socks. Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions, it's really cool to see you on the Earwolf forums.
  21. Of course, Paul. My apologies. I regret the tone of my previous comment, and while that video really does perfectly sum up many of my feelings, you're absolutely right that it's not the time or the place. I do recommend watching it though. I truly hate that my only interaction with you on these boards is because of this, but there's really only one person to blame (Dan, obviously). I hope you have a great Thanksgiving!
