Episode 91 — The 1st Annual Howdies Pt. 1

Recommended Posts

Great episode, although I am kind of disappointed that two of my favorite crazy June theories were left out:

1) Seagal used deer penis to make Wayans become more sensitive in touch with his feminine side in The Glimmer Man.

2) Judges in Judge Dredd had no genitalia.

And her question "Are they humans?" during the "Nothing But Trouble" ep.

Re sponsors:

 

1. "Cards Against Humanity" IS a hilarious game.

2. Why did Paul say that sponsors ask him not to use violence in their spots? Has that been a big problem? I could imagine that could be an issue if the sponsor were a saw, a hostel, or a summer camp, but has Paul been tempted to incorporate brutality and gore into his Nature Box pitches?

3. I just read that Nordstrom bought Trunk Club for $350 million. I have to believe that TC's exposure on HDTGM drove that acquisition. So, congratulations. By the way, with that kind of money, the sellers could easily reboot Pluto Nash and make it right this time--or they could remake Sleepaway Camp one thousand times.

My husband and I keep doing Zouks' Pacino "Oh, OH!" from the beginning of that clip at weird times to crack each other up.

this...was EXACTLY what i was referring to.

Great show. I never miss it .
However
the numbers that June recited sound...specious at best. I believe that the total cost of all the movies is correct-- in the lower billions, but not trillions. And yes, I'm sure the writer of the post got it right.
Howaever, the numbers that June recited sound...specious at best. And yes, I'm sure the writer of the post got it right. June just read it wrong.

I only wish that Zouks' Devil's Advocate "I'll show you the fastest way to get around town: the SUBWAY, my boy!" had been eligible.

 

And Tom Lennon's double duty as Hulk Hogan and Kurt Fuller from No Holds Barred was an oversight, brother.

To be fair, It's not exactly a secret that Reeve got carried away with himself after Superman The Movie. He famously fought bitterly with Margot Kidder on Superman IV.

 

Although to his credit, he seemed to come back down to earth by the early 90s.

I hardly ever tell this story, but here goes: I had a non-speaking part as a villain on Ang Lee's Hulk movie. When I heard that they were going to use CGI for the Hulk, I told Ang just to "Lou Ferrigno" it. So they used my trainer and a whole bunch of anabolic steroids to bulk up Eric Bana and then painted him green. He got up to about 190 lbs for the part, and none of it was flab. Well, one day, I heard that Eric Bana was talking trash about me, so I grabbed him by the neck and told him that he was going to be using my poo as a hair conditioner. He kind of stomped back to his trailer, and when Ang asked him what was wrong, Bana just said, "Hulk scared." Ang came after me and said that I would never work in this business again. I grabbed him by the neck and told him that he didn't know anything about comic books. I said, "You should be making movies about gay cowboys or something instead." Everyone heard this and started laughing at him. The rest, as they say, is history.

I find this story 100% credible.

In defense of the pasta robot:

 

1. Rob Schneider is clearly tampering with the robot because when Dredd says "Halt!" and obstructs the robot's passage away from the crime scene, the robot says, "The servo-droid is your friend. Please let your friend go by." The robot would not have said that unless Rob Schneider was manipulating its verbalizing functions and trying to escape.

 

2. Dredd arrests Schneider for "wilfull sabotage" of a public droid.

 

3. It is possible to make a battery out of a potatoes or lemons. Every middle school science fair contains some such contraption. It is not entirely unreasonable to believe that a robot whose stated purpose is to recycle food could be powered by, and even perhaps wired with, food products--especially in a society that has the technology to produce clones that come to life as adults and have genitals that were completely formed in the last 30 minutes of the gestation process.

 

Ergo, Rob Schneider could have been using the spaghetti to hack the servo-droid.

 

June, that's the best I've got. I'm not a scientist (and, Pete Holmes, I'm not a cop).

Hey guys, what about Edith Niedelmeyer from the Color Of Night for a ridiculously bad name. I created my account after I finished the podcast and luckily nobody chose this username. This should of been a nominee or better yet, a honorable mention in the mini-episode to pay homage to a 2 time Emmy winner. You'll probably have to IMDB to remember her el oh el'z

Awesome episode! Only thing I could've done without was Paul's excitement for Jack O'Halloran's contributions during the Superman III ep. That dude sounds like such an insecure, desperate bully and he bums me the F out.

That is one of only two episodes that I don't go back and listen to, because O'Halloran was the worst. I can't deal with the Wild, Wild West episode either, because Kevin Smith made it all about himself.

Wig talk at the howdies.

This might be a good jumping off point to for a wig themed spinoff podcast featuring JDR.

How Did this Wig Get Made podcast would feature a very technical step-by-step discussion on how wigs actually get made from the human hair sourcing, wig building, and long term wig maintenance.

Gus' numbers got me thinking: Are there legit Stallone apologists in the world? Save Rocky and of course Snaps Provolone from the incredible "Oscar," I cannot think of a time I really enjoyed him or any of his films. Even the by-the-numbers action stuff is ruined by his mush mouth delivery. How is this guy a star? And for 40 years no less!

You guys, you could so easily make Schumacher the KING if you do "St. Elmo's Fire," or M. Night the KING if you do "The Happening." Let's crown us a auteur sometime soon.

I'd love to see another Schumacher effort get done, but I'd push for "The Lost Boys" over all else. I know it's beloved and all, but that thing is a goldmine for discussion. They could spend an hour alone deconstructing Timmy Cappello's glorious saxophone performance.

Drillboids, that's great. I hated "The Lost Boys." They can make it a coronation episode called, "How Did This Get SchuMade?" and they can keep "St. Emilio's Fire" in the chamber in case they ever need it to defend his reign as king of HDTGM directors.
