Oh, here's Jackie Vernon -- he usually works blue, but this is sorta what Bob reminded me of:

With a little touch of Foster Brooks as well:

It was difficult to stay hard G in mentioning him on the air b/c those guys are usually much dirtier than this - this stuff is from TV I think.

Those old time roasts really show all those comedians in the worst light. Milton Berle in particular.

Remember how he couldn't stop his leg?

Back from the days when hopeless alcoholism was hilarious!

I'm stoked Tom mentioned my book last night!!

And he's right - I inserted a secret "FOT" on the glass front of a pinball machine in the 11th floor apartment in the book.  

I collaborated with two writers, Mac Barnett and Eli Horowitz, in order to create a whodunnit narrative. Beyond fiction, the story enters into the real world in the form of a nation-wide treasure hunt- each drawn page in the book has a secretly coded map which directs adventurous readers to twelve individually buried numerals, 1-12, made of gold and studded with emeralds, created by jeweler Anna Sheffield. They have been buried in holes across the country waiting to be found. Whoever first digs them up gets to keep them. Players and onlookers can follow along with the progress of the hunt on the fictional narrator Gus Twintig's personal blog: gustwintig.com.

Milo's high-pitched, silly giggle that came out of nowhere, and Tom's reaction to it.

Seriously, Bob's entire call. Are we sure he isn't an actor or comedian? And this wasn't planned??
Too soon?

I wanna hear more about this NPR show host Greg Kaleer, who also starred in a movie with Merle Creep.

I have that itch slightly but I have it more with going to see long movies in the theater. Dekalog and the Bonderchuk War & Peace gave me pancake ass, and yet I'd go see something like those again ... something about them being really crazy to screen makes me go watch them ... kind of the film equivalent of a limited edition record.


Avoid Satantango at all costs, I think it's something like 15 hours?  I tried to make it through but couldn't.  It was so boring a bunch of weird eastern Europeans wondering around in the mud.  There is on shot that's just this pudgy guy staring out a window, this scene was over an hour long.

Additionally my favorite moment from the last show was the spike call, I just love Tom listing the cast of Losers.  This show in total was a highlight.  Tom came up with so many great things on the fly this week. 8)

You're saying I could really travel to these places and find the golden numbers?  That's awesome!
