I find this video really weird, as it is clear these impersonators have no idea what they are saying, but are just phonetically sounding out the words. Why would it take them 25 years to cover this song, I have no idea. Anwyay, thanks to The Eyebott for this find.
I have been sicker than a dog since I returned from my trip to Houston last week. Literally, since I stepped off the plane, I was hit with a devastating flu virus that has wreaked havoc with my system all week. I am still reeling from it today. This, combined with some other wonderful happenings that I'm sure we'll detail on tonight's show, have rendered me useless on all fronts except the bed one. Needless to say, I apologize and I hope to be back ion the saddle sooner than later.
A very happy easter to all our listeners and readers from us to you. Hope everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday and that no one eats too much ham.
Also, I'd like to remind everyone that our 200th podcast will be in just two weeks, so if you do desire, send us your audio well wishes and whatever else you'd like to our e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks and have a great holiday!
In case you haven't seen these hilarious overdubbed guitar videos, you don't know what you're missing. Here is one of famed metal guiarist, Yngwie Malmsteen playing with a symphony orchestra...badly. Want to see more? How about Clapton, Stevie Ray and Metallica, just to name a few.
I saw this story this afternoon, and while it does seem a little kooky and ridiculous, I have to admire these guys for trying to make a difference on the streets.
"Don’t be alarmed if you see two masked men walking the streets of San Diego over the next few days. Not if they go by the names Mr. Extreme and Shadow Hare. The duo call themselves “Real Life Superheroes.” This week, their mission is to find the suspect accused of attacking people with a skateboard in the Chula Vista area. Mr. Extreme and Shadow Hare patrol during the day and night warning community members to be on alert"
The kid whose superhero moniker is Shadow Hare was taking some ribbing from the reporter on FOX news for his name, until he explained it represented a meek creature who has secret powers. It was actually a pretty good explanation. See the full story here.
"Ness County Sheriff Bryan Whipple said it appeared the 35-year-old Ness City woman's skin had grown around the seat. She initially refused emergency medical services but was finally convinced by responders and her boyfriend that she needed to be checked out at a hospital.
"We pried the toilet seat off with a pry bar and the seat went with her to the hospital," Whipple said. "The hospital removed it."
This is a casting call for an XBOX 360 commercial. This is the original ad. It was never aired because it was considered too violent. I feel the woman's acting in the casting call is too violent. You decide.
Sent in by JuCo herself, this web tie-in for the upcoming Pixar movie Wall-E. The site is fully fleshed out, with working links to real stories and everything else you would expect from the Pixar crowd. Really wonderful work. I wonder how happy a person would be knowing that this is the kind of stuff they do for a living? I'm envious, really.
You may remember this post from a while back about how I got Super Mario Galaxy for just $3.50 new. Well, I got that beat. I picked up a copy of Super Smash Brothers Brawl (new) today at Gamestop and they paid me $1.15! Here's how: I traded in 2 Wii games thinking I could take advantage of a promotion where you could get the game for $10. As it turns out, the two games I traded in were worth more than the game itself! So they actually owed me money.
I haven't played the game yet, but I plan on playing in a few hours. If you want to play online, let me know and we can get a match going.
Woot for good video game deals!
BTW, my brawl code is 2793-0302-0057. :) Look us up if you want to play.
I got this in the e-mail box today and thought it was pretty clever. It's from a listener who wants to let us know how he feels about the show, assumingl because of my rant on show 197. Click the image to make it larger.
Ordered by Richard for Monster By Mail. BTW, we're still looking for sketches of Richard. Head on over here and contribute. Or leave us a voicemail and either Nora, Neil or I will draw your description.
Tonight! Dreams! Three Shows Away! Headlice! Sleeping! And MORE! This is why podcasts were created, folks. Enjoy! (For some reason, the show was not being picked up by iTunes. Hopefully this re-post will fix that problem.)
I was doing some research the other day and I realized there isn't nearly enough Banana Splits art out there. I'm planning on changing that. Here is my first piece of art based on the Hanna-Barbera/Krofft live action puppet show.
I don't know if Richard has seen all the drawings yet, but I think it's pretty cool to have "Ape Lad" Adam Koford draw up a sketch of this mystery man. I also am intrigued by the fact that most of the drawings are depicting Richard with some sort of facial hair. I'm going to have to draw another one of Richard with a full on beard.
Which reminds me, feel free to add more than one drawing if you like. And as mentioned in the comments, for those who are unwieldy with the art stuffs, you can call our voicemail line @ 206.666.2326, leave a description of Richard and either Nora, Neil or I will draw a sktech based on your verbal description.
Also Richard, if you are reading this, maybe one day you can provide us a photo of yourself, but for now, allow us be mired in this mystery.
The group pool of Sketch Richard over at Flickr continues to grow. There are some pretty good entires, but we'd like to see more! If you want to take part in trying to imagine what Richard in Savannah, GA looks like, get a Flickr account and join in the fun!
This is what Neil from Fishbrick thinks Richard looks like. I think he's pretty darn accurate, actually.
