There needs to be a spinoff podcast....
« on: June 03, 2018, 03:46:47 PM »
The AP Mike Experience or AP Mike & Co. where Mike talks about anything and everything with a revolving collection of guests, and a puppet catfish reviews all the bootleg Grateful Dead albums Mike has. "Frolic" by Luciano Michelini should be the opening music, closing should be that Grateful Dead cover of "Good Lovin'" where Pigpen raps endlessly about the Four Day Creep.

If that isn't interesting, how about....

Best Show GOMPers, the show where Mike or Dudio or both track down the worst callers from the show and interview them. Hernando Biggie, "You got James'd", the utterly punchable Captain Jack, the Mit Hamine guy, Mattress Man, all the snobby callers from obscure neighborhoods in New York, the dude who called his house "the chateau",  and all the people trying to copy E-Cigarettes for Legs that one time, plus many, many others. I want the actual E-Cigarettes for Legs guy left out of the hunt; he's like the Longmont Potion Castle of the show now - the less we know, the better.

The AP Michael Tyler Moore Show would be a spinoff I'd watch. Our cynical hero takes a job at a tech startup where Michael Tyler Moore (as  Mary) is the curmudgeonly new hire who works for a very spunky department boss named, Louise Grant. Ms Grant is charged with "graduating" older employees who won't leave on their own while maintaining her unusual levels of "spunk." Hilarity ensues.

I imagine that it would go something like this....

Dammit, that's a TV show. Probably a show that could be run on Netflix with some tweaks, but still, a show with a visual element.

I was thinking 30-minute podcasts because they are easiest to make (you can have an irregular release schedule, any editing is less of a hassle, etc.) because this is a side-gig for AP Mike and whatever cast and crew he can collect. If they were to go with a show like Best Show GOMPers, it would take time to find the people, interview them, probably bleep a lot of cursing out, and Mike would have to hide for a few months after punching Captain Jack in the face - all of that is a given, if Cap'n. Jack is as annoying in real life as he was on The Best Show, which he might just turn out to be. I'm willing to let the crew experiment.


I saw your Dan Lyons speech (mostly good stuff until the end; economic neoliberalism cannot cure economic neoliberalism) and I raise you Longmont Potion Castle trying to send a crate of millipedes to a noted Famous Person: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrImN09K3wE

All that can work so long as we can work it in so that Mike (Mary) does the eulogy for Chuckles the Clown, unless maybe we can have Mike (Mary) also play Ted Baxter using a paste-on beard: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-s-EuhJofY. 

We can save money that way.

Good episode but it's still television. If you want to have AP Mike do a YouTube/Vimeo/Dailymotion video, how about....

Finding George R.R. Martin's Stuff? AP Mike hosts while a crew goes to Martin's old Bayonne high school and tries to uncover if his locker ever got jammed, and if so, they try to pry it open to see the treasures within. Or they could send a scuba crew to the bottom of the bay to see if bullies threw his binders of early Game of Thrones chapters down there. I've heard that George "Rail Road" Martin has a vault somewhere in New Jersey filled with those crusty old fisherman/train engineer hats, and that a certain mall in the same state has a Santa suit that Martin wore one holiday season that they still can't use due to lasting offensive body funk issues. They keep it in a vacuum bag inside a cello case marked "NEVER OPEN FOR THE LOVE OF GOD."

I just want a chance where nothing turns up at the end and Mike Lisk has to do a Geraldo "Well, I've just wasted your time" shoulder shrug, puts down the mic, and flees the set. We have to have at least that.

(Bonus: Kiefer Sutherland not accepting any plaster of Paris or any crap from Longmont Potion Castle, no matter if the plaster did come from the Ho-Ho House.)

At some point, we will need an opening sequence, so maybe face swap Mike's headshot on to this 1970's MTM pilot opening: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYgKcUDZ-E0. That is beyond my capabilities, though.

Also fun could be a Forrest Mike series where he is kind of like a Dr. Gump who travels through time and tells historical figures everything that will go wrong after their leadershp ends. Hilarity ensues.

My question is - why hasn't Mike injected himself into these proceedings to tell us that he's spending all his free time making a scene-by-scene remake of Taxi Driver on the streets of Bayonne using bumper cars for taxis?

He hasn't had the right offer yet.

Mike. I offer you five dollars. American.
