EPISODE 221 — A Tribute To Harris Wittels

Recommended Posts

Ku, your intro killed me. I was in tears again. I wish I could give you a big hug. Thank you and Stard and the interns for sharing this with us.

Howard and Harris singing Lil Troy made me unbelievably happy.

 

When he says "I never say goodbye", I almost burst into tears.

 

Stard, you're amazing for engineering this and the CBB ep. What a fucking champ. Thank you

The ending was sweet. 82 regrets...

 

Nice work on this Brett.

Brett really deserves an MVP award for his work this week. He already deserved one for all his hard work at Earwolf, but jeez these shows must have been incredibly difficult to put together so quickly. We really appreciate what you do, Stard.

 

 

Didn't Kulap say the interns Patrick and Chris actually worked on this? They need some love too.

I was going by Dan's post. But Brett did the CBB Poseidon, so at the very least thumbs up for that one.

 

 

Hmm. My autocorrect seems to be gay for Poseidon...

I loved this. Between welling up at the CBB intro on Monday and this one today I must have looked like one manic motherfucker walking my dog in the mornings this week.

 

RC: ate a cheeseburger for Harris today.

I definitely did not mean to diminish the hard work the entire Earwolf family puts into everything they do and especially the difficult work they've put in this past week. I just wanted acknowledge Brett since he did such great work on what I imagine were two very, very difficult episodes in the wake of what happened.

I think I've brought up Harris's observation on "Best Day of My Life" in multiple real-world conversations. Fuck tenses. Harris is the funniest guy. I already miss him very, very much.

 

I had already relistened to some of the Whooch appearances, but this was a fitting tribute that really shows how moment-to-moment, Harris is just constantly sharp and shining.

 

Thanks Ku, Brett, and the interns. My thoughts are with the whole Earwolf family.

In the CBB thread, I said that playing a regular episode in the can was a better tribute than a specific tribute would be, but damned if this wasn't equally great. Also, the respective intros were both great and very different, and perfectly fit Scott and Kulap's personalities.

 

The clip where Harris said that war should be two guys fighting and the winner gets all the other country's wheat perfectly dovetails with his Wheat Thins foam. The dude loved wheat!

This was a very nice tribute. I liked how Harris was one of the few Whooch guests that was also a fan of the show and listened to it. Everybody should go watch the VPN episode. Its good times.

(Also, I'm glad I got to hear that sentence flub from Howard again. "You not know jo-geography." Hahaha, classic.)

Oh man, I still remember the first Harris podcast I ever listened to and it happened to be Whooch. Bittersweet memories of our years together as podcast guest (Harris) and podcast listener (me). Thank you all for powering through and letting us listeners mourn along with you.

 

Motherfuckers want (NEED) to laugh!

"I miss my friend, and I love him"

 

I was kind of able to 'tough out' the intro until that, but then there was just no use in even trying. Thankfully, shortly after, an 11 year old Harris was telling Pauly Shore that John Holmes was his favorite porn star

Just realized that I'll never again get to have my treasured experience of checking my twitter feed in bed at the end of the night and having my girlfriend say "read me a Twittels". This has been a semireg part of the relationship for YEARS now. Crazy how much joy he gave us.

OMG! I remembered that I had heard it on Whooch but FORGOT that it was Harris who introduced me to wank.db, which has been my porn site of choice ever since.

 

Hahahahahah! Oh Harris, I really do have so much to thank you for <3

Here's a picture of the McDonald's that Kulap and Scott bought. Deanna Russo, Michael Cassady's wife, posted it on Instagram.

 

As someone who shares Harris' love of garbage foods, this pile of fast food makes my mouth water.

 

I don't know how to upload a full jpg in this forum, but if you right-click on the thumbnail below and select "Open link in new tab" you should be able to see the full screengrab.

i've spent the last (almost) two months avoiding this because everything else was just too sad.

 

of course this made me cry during the intro, but his birthday is tomorrow, so it's time to put the big girl pants on and laugh cry.

 

thanks for this. <3
