Yeh, this is gonna be a fun one, a sort of pre-christmas rerun that got some christmas thinking to it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04am Nick the Bard:

and then i have to listen to myself talk, ugh
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05am Ignatatus666:

Hey Nick
Bring the fun
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07am Nick the Bard:

Hopefully this one should, I think I have a bit more enthusiasm with it too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09am Nick the Bard:

Hell if I can really remember anything that went on with this episode though, and I've been having some tech problems, so, couldn't really check things with it (eventhough I JUST remembered I think I have the full show saved somewhat, gah)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10am Ignatatus666:

Are you at the studio live?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11am Nick the Bard:

Nope, at home, I did get a work around figured out to do this

@duck - Yay, I'm making someone care about something
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20am Nick the Bard:

OH HAI BUCK HENRY why I didn't include this in the Buck Henry tribute episode
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24am Nick the Bard:

I'm really thinking of going back and doing a full David Bowie tribute episode at some point, just this alone doesn't feel like it was enough
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26am Nick the Bard:

"Cast Gimmick" isn't awkward at all now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26am Ignatatus666:

I think if Zorack shows up alone in a Street fight I’ll kick his ass
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29am Nick the Bard:

It might depend on which version of Zorak you're dealing with
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39am mariano:

Nick, Ignatatus! We the only ones here? Because who needs sleep during the Apocalypse, amirite?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58am mariano:

Sorry to hear, Ignatatus, was wondering how this whole deal was affecting you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00am mariano:

Hey G. Playing Red Dead Redemption 2 with FMU as the soundtrack.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02am Nick the Bard:

DAMMIT, C. Martin Croker around this ep, I COMPLETELY forgot about that, DAMMIT, maybe have to do an expanded one for him too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03am Ignatatus666:

I’m grateful to be essential and still make a few dollars. Otherwise I may end up homeless. I can see many businesses not surviving. Many people are facing layoffs and straight unemployment. Most people do not know the size of the workforce about to be ass out. There’s no stimulus for us. I’m currently earning 75% less and eating away at my savings.

Without peeping the playlist is this Type O Negative?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09am mariano:

Yeah, gotta assume no work for me for the next little while, hoping there's some relief package for everyone. Glad you can still make a little, Ignatatus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10am Nick the Bard:

Yup, it's Type O, off, Nativity in Black

Pete Steel had a great voice

I told my boss I’m going to start selling pretzel sticks in the taxi
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13am Nick the Bard:

I REALLY wish I could find the radio interview Peter Steele did when he was talking about microwaving hot dogs to watch the skin crinkle because he was bored
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13am Ignatatus666:

Great pick Nick!!! Perfect mix
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14am mariano:

That's the spirit, Ignatatus. Or maybe toilet paper?

abevigoda.com didn't update until a couple hours after it was announced Abe died, so, he was still around for a while longer

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20am Nick the Bard:

I don't even know what station it was (MAYBE WDHA?), we just had whatever station on in the car and they just happened to have Peter Steele on that night (might've been around 1999 or 2000)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22am Ignatatus666:

When Pete Steele dropped Carnivore he tried to change the name to SubZero
We had to step in and stop him as a band I managed at the time already had that name and recorded under that name. Pete didn’t fight that hard and settled on Type O Negative. Pretty slick. So he was still Sub Zero
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25am Ignatatus666:

Sub Zero are still recording and playing gigs still a great Hardcore/crossover band
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26am Nick the Bard:

he had parts in some of Bill Zebub's movies too (although I think one of them was just reused footage)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27am Ignatatus666:

Nick
Where were you in that era?
If it was this area I would think wsou. NYC could be NYU
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28am Ignatatus666:

Bill Zebub, is that Professor Dumdum?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29am Nick the Bard:

Still in this area, but I don't even remember where we were in the car that night, just that my brother had to go somewhere and we (me, my mom, and I think my grandmother) were waiting for him in the car. But, I do know he listened to DHA a lot (he wasn't an SOU kind of person)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30am Nick the Bard:

and yeh, same person
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37am Ignatatus666:

Ow!! It’s not hot?!

Yes, this thing from Press Your Luck actually got to me THAT BAD
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07am Ignatatus666:

I agree
The correct answer is Pasta or Macaroni
In some South American cultures they refer to all pasta as Fideos which is specifically angel hair for soup. That Ziti pronunciation needed a smack
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09am Ignatatus666:

If I’m not mistaken the box reads
Enriched macaroni product
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12am Nick the Bard:

Worst part is, Peter Tomarkin isn't even from anywhere near Canada, so he can't even use the "Zed" pronunciation excuse (he's from Olean, New York, which is like right on the border of Pennsylvania)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18am mariano:

Peter Dinklage!
  5:32am Colleen:

Love this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39am Nick the Bard:

I've been trying to go back through the old scheduals and archvies, i can't figure out who I filled in for with this episode
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44am Nick the Bard:

and as long as everything goes to plan, we SHOULD have a new episode next week. Albeit pre-recorded, but still, new stuff. (I had to get a new mic, or else it would've been a new ep this week too)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46am Nick the Bard:

and I TOTALLY do not remember this pizza song, the hell...
Avatar 5:55am Strandlund:

Thanks Nick...I needed this laugh this morning.
