Damn you, Blip, Damn yous all to hell!
Ok I just wanted to get this out in the open before it becomes a thing. Yes, I accidentally shit my pants on the recent episode of Radiodrome, and yes, we forgot to delete it from the podcast. My bowels are a serious issue, and luckily the diapers I wear keep me from making an even bigger mess than it normally would. I appreciate you letting me explain myself.
Yeah well, you're a scum sucking piece of shit, so who gives a fuck that this happened to you.
I don't think that's the real Josh, but if it is, I really hope that's true, and I want to find that episode.
Oh just Fuck Off, you lame-ass fake....this joke was NEVER funny....and is even less so now.
Speak for yourself, the Fake Josh twitter account is one of the highlights of my day. There's actually some pretty good jokes on it, even if you don't know Josh.
As someone who has worked with Josh in the past, I can vouch for the fact that, yes, the Fake Josh twitter account is extremely funny. =) At one point we even wanted to make Golden Fish Head pub t-shirts.
Now, Now, I should be clearer....I'm ONLY referring to the commentary troll (who only does low-hanging fruit)....I've no ish with Twittery Josh - he's actually funny (creative) .
Fuck off Fake Josh.
Oh, you guys sound like you had a real freaking blast. Makes me jealous that I can't afford to go to cons.
And don't worry guys. I may've severely disagreed with many of things you said about MoS and still do, but I do love you guys. Different strokes n all. Aside from the re-review, you guys at least weren't assholes about it.
I thought the re-review was hilarious. And surpisingly less racist than Irving.
'That's our Irving'™
Speed Dating challenge. Actively attempt to be the most offensive you can and TRY to not get any numbers.
'I'm a vegan, THAT'S A WHOLE LOTTA NOPE!' I agree Jake.
I was wondering if you'd mention that your favorite movie was Caligula to anyone in the speed dating, I imagine that would have gone over well.
'Lou Ferrigno was a dick to me *laugh*' That's why I love listening to you Brad.
I am so going to ask for a small queer on the side at the next restaurant I go to.
It looks like on their web page that Days of the Dead are sold out on vendor space, I hope they still have room for you there Brad. I can definitely make that one.
I think the idea of speed dating at a con is a great idea. Too bad they don't do it down here in Australia.
You should organize one at your next con then. Just do it better than fat Star Wars guy, shouldn't be hard.
Coo masks, bro.
If that speeding dating thing happened to me and I had to miss the vendor room as a result, there'd be a fat Force ghost and an empty robe in that conference room.
Jesus Christ, Brad! Stop abusing poor Allison!
She needs to get a bear mask and chase those abusive little 'birds' out of her hair! #BEARS!
You're doing it wrong it's #BEEAAAARRRRSSS
Also, speaking of Rooker, did you guys go to the panel where he and Bautista re-enacted the Dancing Baby Groot scene?
I met that ass-hat Jedi at Salt Lake Comicon. Exact same experience! Shitty standup to "lighten the mood," ran on WAY too long, thinks his snarky banter is the shit. One lonely guy started writing his name and phone number on EVERY girls' paper and it took as long as it sounds, so Jedi Master Fatass had to resort to doing impressions.
The guy is an assassin of moods. He killed it again and again; but to top it all he launches into this weird rant about how the US treats their veterans and now the mood is just beyond dead. Its corpse is hamburger. At this point he's holding the papers hostage (like you said) and then he starts talking about Obama. No jokes. Just how he felt about Obama (way to ease the tension buddy). One girl was so fed up with it she left.
To me, it would've been forgivable if the guy didn't think his ass was sunshine but the entire time he's talking up how cool and noteworthy him and his speed dating group are like he has to advertise it to us and maybe one of us is a Comedy Central executive or something who'll see his true talent. No one came here for you! Why are you still talking?
Anyway, no one should have to pay for speed dating when the Speed goes an hour longer than it should have and the Dating keeps getting interrupted by some jackass with a microphone.
What happened with your computer? If you got it back I missed you mentioning it. What was wrong with it. did it cost a ton?
"I wanted to kill this motherfucker."
"I am not she was hot."
Robert Englund snuck in."
Brad I so want to come to this next year and try out that speed dating,. If I do come would you be willing to do a video interview with me. If not fine I will stick to a photo and a handshake. (I am from the uk btw) However was there no way you complain as no speed dating thing I have ever heard about works where the host does a comedy routine half way through. As you guys said it kills the ebbs and flow dead., Brad where there no girls who you liked who gave you their number, I would so go for the vegan chick.
"I am number 23!"
"Who is number 1?"
"You are number 4."
I did that speed dating thing once too, and I'm surprised to find out this guy is still hosting this thing. I had the exact same problem you guys did, this guy would not shut the hell up and just let us leave. This thing lasted over 2 hours and it should have only been half that. If this guy is one of the people who owns the sci-fi speed dating, then he at least needs to be benched, because he continually killed every single vibe in that room.
Yeah, I also did this and the whole experience was a nightmare. Besides going over 2 hours, only half the people in the ground met the other thanks to the massive delays thanks to this guy.
About right after this guy's midway routine four gals just bailed. So when the second half began not only didn't we finish our cycle like you guys, but we only met like five girls during the entire time. Then there was the end with all the guys going to the end to put on a phone number.
Christ, so this is a common occurrence with this guy's events? I could understand if the one Brad and Jake were at was a first attempt, and they were still working out the rough spots. But if they're constantly going late and not finishing, you'd think he'd get the fucking hint. Especially if people are paying actual money to participate.
Your stories at Toby Keith's I Love this Bar and Grill reminds me of my experience of Jimmy Buffet's Cheeseburger in Paradise when I asked for a non-alcoholic menu and they looked at me like I'm part of Al Queda.
God, that speed dating thing sounds like a nightmare. There's nothing less tolerable than failed comedy, especially when you could probably do better yourself. Pair this asshole up with Fez Guy and you could quite possibly have the World's Worst Human Being. After Josh Hadley, I mean.
On the other hand, talking about using those bird head masks in The Reviewers makes me wonder how Jeff and Andy would cope on the Con circuit. Peyote trip sequence? Finally meeting Dave's character and getting the shit beaten out of them? Empty tables like Josh Peck? You could do something funny with Andy haggling over the price of photos with customers probably.
I think the guy that runs the speed dating at the cons had a TLC special called Geek Love. Apparently dressing as a jedi is his go to thing.
one of the contestants also went on to star in a syfy reality series.
take this knowledge and do with it what you will.
Sounds like he belongs on the same network as Honey Boo Boo and Kate Goselin.
look at this specimen of perfection.
I just watched the first episode of Geek Love (they have the first, and hopefully only, season available on Youtube), and everything about it was cringeworthy, from the host to the few people they decide to focus on (the first episode focuses on a Brony complaining about the "friendzone", if that gives you an indication of what they were trying to put out there).
I'm sure him having a tiny modicum of fame on a second-tier cable channel has done nothing but inflate this guy's ego to the point where he thinks he's justified in doing a half-hour or more of standup in the middle of this event. After all, he's a "TV personality" now. :(
Such a rousing fun listen! I'm definitely eyeing the Days of the Dead Con now. Bruce Boxlietner is scheduled to be there. I'd love to get a Babylon 5 autograph.
No nork javel on facebook.So disappoint.
Though there is a Norsk Jävel.Are you secretly a norwegian,Jake?
Hmmmm....YES! That's why all the Swedish Chef talk....its a RUSE!
Fun fact: in Sweden, the Swedish Chef is known as the Norwegian Chef.
In Germany, it's the Danish Chef because for the dub, they threw some Danish words into his opening song and heavily featured words with "ø" (most famously "Smørrebrød").
This was a fun podcast to listen to.
Also, I can't help but wonder if there will be a Midnight Screenings this week. The Identical is the only movie opening, as far as I can tell.
Maybe Brad will see Ghostbusters with his mom.
Shit, instead of The Identical, my theater got some low budget art film called Canopy. I am not kidding, this is a WWII film that's so tedious and ponderous, it made The Thin Red Line look like Platoon.
Though I'm not sure The Identical would have been much better. At least I might have gotten some laughs out of it.
I really hope there is one this week, especially when part of me keeps hoping they'll review If I Stay (since it just looks so awful and cheesy) but at this point it seems unlikely. Darn.
I can't remember where I saw it (possibly the Onion AV Club?) but they were doing a rundown of upcoming movies and summarized it thusly: "'Guardians of the Galaxy' is probably going to be #1 until 'Interstellar' debuts in November."
That's not exactly true--"A Walk Amongst the Tombstones" and "The Equalizer" open in September and "Gone Girl" and"The Judge" come out in October", all Oscar bait-ish likely hits--but there's a definite lack of big releases over the next few months. Hell, the only things I might see until then are the "Anaconda" Rifftrax Live and maybe "The Equalizer".
In all fairness to Josh Peck, he gave a damned good performance in “Mean Creek”, which I highly recommend to anybody who hasn’t watched it. Imagine it as “Stand by Me” meets “Deliverance”.
good snobcast! Freedom Fries was even more dumb to begin with than most recognize since Fries supposedly originated in Belgium :D
Great video, but I'm very disappointed that it wasn't in 1080p.
this is one of the most funniest podcast i have ever listened to. this has made my day completely.
It seems to me that the "comedian" was simply using the speed dating event as an excuse to unleash his routine on a captive audience, as going the normal route has probably not worked out well for him. And from other comments here, he has done it several times before. He probably does not care if nobody gets to talk with anyone else, but needs let people get comfortable and let their guard down before springing the trap.
In practice, pretty much anyone that does "comedy" specifically for a niche group--especially fandoms--is just someone that couldn't hack it as a real stand-up comic and is just trying to be a somewhat oversized fish in a small pond (sorta like Christian Rock musicians.) I once saw a clip of a guy that only does stand-up at Furry cons... yeesh.
The fat fuck described here couldn't even be THAT, and had to actually come up with a gimick to trap people into watching his shitty routine.
damn brad you were making it rain. $50 $50 $50 $50
glad to know the dark knight rises review is still paying dividends
After hearing the speed dating story and reading all of the comments about Doublechin Moodkiller, if his bullshit routine and antics caused a girl who I genuinely felt a connection with to bail before finding out who she was, I would pulverize him then and there, assault charges be damned. :/ And I'm fairly passive unless severely provoked.
I hope we get an EL TOPO CHICO video!
Also, I hope poor Allison actually got to do some stuff at the convention she wanted to.
Michael Rooker confirmed for Birdemic 3
Overheard in Vegas: "Can I help you find something, sir." "Yeah, the dad-gum Toby Keith Bar and Grill for starters."
You have no idea how happy I am that someone else thinks of this upon hearing about the "Toby Keith Bar & Grill". It's literally the first thing that pops into my mind whenever I hear about that place.
"Switches pay half"
"Welp, thith is a whole lotta nope"
Oh fuck me, I laughed. Sometimes when you guys make gay jokes it gets me pretty hard, because I don't expect it from you.
I'm gay; the whole times I was listening to the story up to that point I was thinking 'man, I would do this if I were single and at a con.' It sounds super fun. But uh... well, exactly what you said. How the fuck would that work?
Great story :)
I just want to know what power bottoms pay. :P
They pay later :)
Brad i know the area you are talking about in rosemount. my brother lvoes the german resterunt, but we never ate at toby keith's, i did apply there one time for a job but never got a call back, i didn't know about the gimmickly menu and i wouldn't be down with freedom fries.
sadly i didn't go to WW but i meet you in C2E2 and you where great.
hmm,i didnt listen to this because i kept thinking about what your wife jillian thought about you posting something like this and bragging about how many girls numbers you got.
or are you divorced?
They've been divorced for a long while now (referenced about numerous times. showed new girlfriends)
Even Fake Josh could've figured THAT out....
They broke up. Brad just married her for her looks anyway.
Brad and Jake are being waaayyy too kind here to not mention who Ryan Glitch is.
He's Ryan Glitch at IGN. He should not be permitted to do an event like this again without some serious changes to the event. If he ruined good times at BOTH Wizard World and SLC Comic Con, he needs to be stopped. Apparently he does this stuff a lot.
It wasn't so much out of kindness, we simply never heard of the guy and didn't catch his name. But you're right, this guy should not be put in charge of hosting these things.
Next time you see a Harley cosplayer ask them if they are into the abusive Harley/Joker type relationship.
For some reason, this particular blip embed player now shows the time marker far past where it should actually be, and when I try clicking on it, it skips way further than I want to. There's a point where the marker is just positioned at the end and trying to skip back goes far more than I want and I have to watch the video all the way back. I understand this doesn't happen on the actual blip.tv, but having to go there every time just seems plain obnoxious. Anyone else been getting this issue?
It's probably because this video is unusually long and after some length whatever calculates the point you jump to starts fucking up for whatever reason. It'd be worth reporting to blip though -- and hope they care. I remember when, with the previous player, it wasn't even possible to skip around the longer videos at all as long as they weren't loaded to that point yet.
finaly someone else that also don't like beer,jake once again i salute you
I used to not like beer for the longest time, then I tried some IPAs and found something I could palette, so I get it. It's the same for people who don't like coffee. I remember when I was a kid smelling coffee and thought it smelled great, then I tasted it and felt the world was a bit crueler than it seemed before.
IPAs seem to be for people who don't like beer.
I like almost all beer except IPAs
Looks like there wasn't any midnight screenings this week, damn shame. Just as well, there wasn't anything good or worth raging about this week anyways. Thanks for sharing the ups and down of the time you had at Wizard World.
I wish we had a White Castle out here in Oregon. We get bacon maple bars at least. Maybe I'll try the speed dating thing at the next con, and see if I can score a hot bird-masked date.
I'm guessing Dave would have the least; one, from the one girl who has a thing for condescending douche-bags.
Brad and Jake should use those bird masks to make a remake of Birdemic...
All I could think of was Hotline Miami.
Great Snobcast, keep 'em coming!
I agree with Jake. If a girl doesn't have personality then I am not interested.
Yes, buy a waifu pillow next anime con, Jake. Embrace the weeaboo side.
Seriously, though, funniest Snobcast yet. You guys have the zaniest adventures.
