Links / Network 77: a roster of FOTs
« Last post by Krokodil_Gena on August 02, 2018, 12:46:30 AM »
Check this out: https://www.network77.com/

A satire of late-'70s TV, Network 77 is a Rachel Lichtman project featuring: Jon Wurster, Ted Leo, Josh Kantor, Aimee Mann, Emma Swift, the band Creamer, Robyn Hitchcock, Pat Sansone of Wilco, Jon Langford of the Mekons, etc. The real brain-bender is the number of people thanked, and many were on The Best Show: Patton Oswalt, Bob Mehr, Coco Hames, Julie Klausner, Gregg Turkington, and Tim Heidecker, among many others (including Sean Tejaratchi, who gave us Crap Hound and Liartown the Tumblr blog).

This needs to be made into a thing, because we only have the one episode right now.

Show Discussion / Re: The Best/Worst Moments of last night's show

Maybe it was just my mood but it seemed like there were a whole lot of dull dudes calling last nights show.  Some exceptions but mostly snooze city.   The Michael Kupperman interview was very entertaining.

The FOT chatroom was nearly dead that night.

I blame the heat.

I don't think it was me.

Thanks, Mike. So noted.

If you don't mind my asking, how did you originally become aware of the show? Was it before or after your now-famous pre-Twitter beef with Tom?

I became a fan of the show about the same time you started as the AP.

From around 2008, maybe?
No, later than that, Dammit!

Does anybody know where the spooky "woooo oooo ooo" sample is from? It's like a high pitched dude singing? It appears several times throughout the sound collages but I just can't place it.

Yet more awful podcasting ideas:

Best Show Armwrasslin'. Video podcast of AP Mike arm-wrestling guests and crew of The Best Show for short-lived glory.

AP Mike presents "PeeperTalk: the Podcast". I'm going to make this stupid idea a thing if it kills me - it's a podcast of interviews with peepers. Why they did it, their issues with dodging buckshot and ladder failure, etc. No stalkers, obscene phone callers, or private investigators - just Peeping Toms. The creepier the better.

AP Mike's Cash Challenge. One of those lucite chambers the guest/victim steps into with the money floating by thanks to a couple of hidden ducted fans. The Mike Lisk difference in this video podcast is that it's all Monopoly money with the actual value cut in half, so the wad of fake money they may snatch out of the chamber may only be worth 20 bucks and change.

Hoaxing with AP Mike. For the James Randi-loving readers of Skeptical Inquirer and Skeptic magazine, this is the counter to "What Was THAT?" featuring AP Mike - host Mike Lisk will show the viewers how to make fake UFO photos and videos, how to recreate Loch Ness Monster photos, make your own copy of the Shroud of Turin, and run your own "haunted" space that terrifies amateur ghost hunters. If Mike can be as obnoxious as Randi was in his 1970s-1990s heyday, possibly Uri Geller will sue him just like he did James Randi!
