Options September 18, 2013: The Seven Second Delay Failed Cable Pilot from 2000
Ken and Andy once welcomed a TV crew into WFMU studios and created a pilot for The Metro Channel, which they lovingly called the failed-pilot before it inevitably failed for real.

The idea was that they would shoot the radio show at WFMU and make it 90 minutes long by cutting in interview segments with Ken and Andy taped after the show where they explain inside jokes and things that went right or wrong, fatal flaws, etc.

Andy sabotaged the entire thing by constantly calling attention to the video crew, and refusing to learn the name of the cable network. Thanks to John K for keeping this recording around for all these years, ripping the audio from VHS, and editing it into a real show.

He keeps insulting metro channel! "You know they're a big deal cause they have their own business cards."

wouldn't Strength Through Failure really be a more appropriate name for SSD? i feel like Fabio unironically succeeds pretty much every week
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/18/13 6:05pm Andrea:

Everyone say "Thank you John K" because he editing all of this together from VHS!
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:06pm Matt from Springfield:

Yay Andy Benediction!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/18/13 6:06pm Caryn:

Then Andy puts on "Hotel California" and gets stabbed repeatedly.

Wait, that didn't happen?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/18/13 6:07pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Will this appear on youtube or other video site, or are there copyright laws that would prevent that?
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:07pm Matt from Springfield:

And thank you John K!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/18/13 6:08pm steve:

@Caryn: That pilot *was* successful, but cable never aired it, they just paid for it so no one else who buy it first. Actually Andy once talked about that practice as a reliable way for writers to bring in some money...

Thank you John K. I'm always happy to hear a new old show.

What's an answering...mashin?
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:12pm Matt from Springfield:

Speaking of answering mashins...are you New Jerseyites getting political robocalls? Virginia and NJ are the only states with a Governor election this year, and I'm getting them too. It wouldn't be so bad if it was recordings of politicians weeping miserably, RoboBawls would be fine...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/18/13 6:14pm Caryn:

Oh Andy, an answering machine full of messages from women wondering where you are is not going to impress a woman. It's just gonna tell her that you are a douchebag who is gonna try and get into your pants and then disappear off the face of the planet and screen your calls.

Also, calls from women sounding like Andy and Ken would definitely not impress anyone.
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:17pm Matt from Springfield:

We know who most of them are, it's the ones not on our radar you gotta worry about.

Ken had a pager!

I'd love to get this on YouTube! I'll ask
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:22pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Something like this was actually on cable back then. My parents,after watching it, finally realized what a weird sense of humor their son had.
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:23pm amanda c:

this episode is great! the fact that it's actually a failed pilot makes it even better. too bad i gotta go out to dinner now. let me know how it ends! (that's funny cuz we know it fails, get it?)
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:25pm Danne D:

Hi everyone :) Thanks John K :)
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:26pm Matt from Springfield:

The whole 7SD episode run is a bathroom break!!!

Hiya Danne! :)

those who don't know the original number have a 1 in 10,000 chance of getting it if you try and random :)

Atheticpay! It's like Athletic Pay!

We miss you Hunter
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:29pm Matt from Springfield:

RIP buddy, Hunter...
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:29pm Danne D:

Agreed Andrea was about to say the same thing - we miss Hunter :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/18/13 6:29pm Caryn:

And Andy's lisp occasionally turns it into "aesthetic-pay", which means nothing in Pig Latin.
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:30pm Fredericks:

Where is my Athletic Pay!
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:30pm Matt from Springfield:

But does "Pays thétique" mean anything in French?
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:31pm Fredericks:

I'm doing jumping jacks, right NOW!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/18/13 6:31pm Andrea:

If anyone has other favorite Hunter episodes, we want to do a compilation show down the line. E-mail them to andrea @ freemusicarchive dot org.
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:32pm Matt from Springfield:

@Fredrix: It's probably a Athetic Play for Athletic Pay situation out there.
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:32pm Danne D:

That's wonderful that you are doing that Andrea :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/18/13 6:32pm Caryn:

@Matt: well, it would mean an "aesthetic country"
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 6:32pm northguineahills:

It still seems like Hunter calls in every week. I suppose that's how memory works.
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:32pm Fredericks:

Hunter has passed? No joke?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/18/13 6:32pm Carmichael:

Andy is collecting pathetic pay.
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks nice of you Andrea.
Don't know any off the top of my head, but Hunter was on mic in a few UCB shows, good place to start.

@Fredrix: Some months ago, yes :(
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:33pm Fredericks:

Now this pilot failed even more.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 6:33pm northguineahills:

What about people interested in scrimshaw and Scrimshaw?
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:34pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: Really??! Wow, some luck on my part! :)
@Carm: "Monk" residuals prob fade over time through inflation.
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 6:35pm Matt from Springfield:

What a long-lived show, it took 35 whole minutes to lose the will to live!

Antique Phonograph Answering Machine!!
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 6:39pm northguineahills:

Not a bad answering machine message, I'm impressed! I miss making answering machine messages for my machine.

How long did the acid reflex Andy era last?

GMMM, there was what looked like one last night.

Tonyb, save one for next marathon. I'm in.

haha, this is gold
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/18/13 6:59pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

Harvest full moon I believe is officially tonight. And also strange is there is a little asteroid zipping by us about half way between the moon and us tonight. The asteroid though is WAY smaller than the one they flew into that Siberian town earlier this year.

hey fredericks:
down to 3...

Andy was right. No matter how bad the show, they almost always save a kick for the end to make me laugh.

thanks Andrea :)
Have a good night everyone :)
Avatar    Wed. 9/18/13 7:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Woooo! The sweet smell of failure in the evening!

Have a good night everyone!

Ken owes Andy an apology. Where was the sabotaging? That was great too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/20/13 2:31pm Greg from Bloomfield:

How this didn't get picked I'll never know...
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 4:45pm Surrealist:

I can't believe I missed this repeat. Scrimshaw...no one's called me that in years. I'm thrilled to be archived amongst one of 7SD's greatest fails of all. (FYI, I didn't get a single call as a result of this show.)
