Comedian Natasha Muse joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of rare Dr. Pepper, artisanal pickling, and Jordan talks about his trip to Nicolas Cage's estate sale. Show notes
Jordan, Jesse, Game!
Neil and Paul join Jesse and Jordan to talk about Wyoming, the new Pee-Wee movie and more.
Firstly, both guests did a fine job what with the banter. No complaints... aside from a disturbing lack of condemnation for John Powers, a critic whose voice is anathema to all that is good. You are correct for loving Dave Davies, though - easily my favorite of the many Daves and Davids on that program.
Secondly. You made passing mention of a debacle involving a webcomic that'll turn up when one googles your podcast. I googled, I dug up a link and downloaded that lost episode. I paused it at the 20-minute break to write this to you. I think you guys were being your usual selves, amiable and aimless (qualities I love; please don't assign negative connotations to that latter descriptor - your ability to cheerfully ramble is great), and I think had the Penny Arcade fellows had a modicum of patience and courtesy, it would've been a fine episode. However, they were total dicks.
Not even that - they were condoms made from unwashed chitterlings.
Anyway. In the first 20 minutes they've mentioned at least twice the existence of a supposed relativistic time pocket where you're recording, wherein 15 minutes feels like hours. They griped about Jordan's lateness, they said they doubted the course their life had taken as a result of having agreed to record with you. Several other things, most mean-spirited and bitter without being particularly clever.
One of them actually said in response to Jordan musing about the "Dancers Have Nice Buns" bumper sticker: "What's funny is you were late for this. That's what's hilarious. I thought, 'Well, he'll be here soon, it'll be worth the wait.'"
I'll be taking a break to decide if it's worth listening to the rest, but my gut says nope. While on this hiatus, I read the blog entry Penny Arcade wrote about doing the podcast. Tycho wrote: "They managed to bring out a side of Gabriel that I’ve only seen three or four times in twelve years, and only once directed at me: the implacable judge who becomes (without warning) the unadorned aggressor." That is inaccurate. He went from a petulant child to a more petulant child. I realize I've tossed some prolix, esoteric vocab up in this bitch, but I think that just makes it all the more damning when I say that dude was using some florid language to describe what was essentially a temper tantrum.
To sum it up: You guys are great. Those guys were not. Bowties are cool.
