TSOYA Classics: Best Friends with John Hodgman & Jonathan Coulton (October 13th, 2006)

| 0 comments

Two old friends, both of the show and of each other: We chat with each separately, and in special blog-only bonus audio (below), we squash a long-simmering feud between them regarding cat care and a series of vicious attack ads.

Jonathan Coulton is a comic singer-songwriter. For a year, he wrote and released (free) a new song every single week. Some, like "Code Monkey," which he performs on the show, have become internet phenomena. Enjoy free downloads of his three musical performances below.

John Hodgman is the author of "The Areas of My Expertise," a compendium of entirely fabricated facts, history and trivia. For many years, Hodgman was a literary agent, and counted among his clients the B-movie star Bruce Campbell. Today, he's best known for portraying the PC in the Mac-Vs.-PC advertisements for Apple, and for his regular appearances on the Daily Show.

PEE WEE ON CONAN

| 2 comments

I stayed up late a couple months ago to watch Pee-Wee on Leno, and it was weird and bad. I was worried that it was Pee-Wee's fault (against my better judgement).

But then I watched Pee-Wee on Conan, and it was GREAT! I LOVE PEE WEE SO EFFING MUCH YOU GUYS.

And in conclusion, IS THERE SOMETHING YOU'D LIKE TO SHARE WITH THE REST OF US AMAZING LARRY?!
