Jim Turner popped by for a chat and a laugh. Jim was a good talker. We only got through about the first twenty years of his career, so we’ll probably have him on again sometime in the nearish future. It was fun talking about comedy and whatnot in the seventies. It was also fun talking about Randy Newman. Comedians seem to really like Randy Newman, what with him being an unreliable narrator and such.
I have three cups of coffee sitting next to me. Two of the cups of coffee were gifts. I am deciding which cup of coffee I should drink right now. I hope I make the right choice.
Kate Micucci came by the BuckLair last night for a chat and a laugh. She is quite funny. It was a really fun talking with her about many different things. We forgot to get a picture. Next time we’ll get a picture. Next time things will be different. I swear. I promise.
Will Leitch is a fantastic talker. It was fun pontificating a bit about movies and sport. I remember hearing Will for the first time on The Baseball Prospectus Podcast. It was 2005. I had just started listening to podcasts. We all had. I was working at the Hollywood Athletic Club, scraping old dried plaster and paint off the ceiling. We were restoring the Hollywood Athletic Club back to its original glory. The work was pretty monotonous, but the monotony was eased by the discovery of the podcast.
The Oscars are tonight… so is the NBA All Star Game. Neil Hamburger also has his show at The Satellite. I might try and go see Neil Hamburger if I’m not still at urgent care with the baby who was crying in the middle of the podcast. My baby who was crying in the middle of the podcast might have an ear infection. They say that children who have ear infections have a difficult time sleeping, what with the mess of sick rolling around inside of their ears. I’m definitely not positive this is the case as he can’t talk yet. He can’t tell us there’s a mess of sick rolling around up inside of his ears. He can cry, though. He can cry very loudly.
Josh Fadem came in to the BuckLair for a chat and a laugh last night. It was fat Tuesday. We celebrated by talking for a very long time. Josh was wildly fun guest. He also did some impressions. He might have been our first real impressionist. He wasn’t Rich Little, but he was groovy and good. Impressionists are fantastic. They’re like magicians. They pull verbal rabbits out of metaphorical hats.
Because of the length, we decided to break the podcast up into two parts. It was fun and good. Watch Josh do things. It will make you smile a happy smile. This is all for now. More coming soon. Will Leitch calling in on Sunday. Hopefully the phones work.
Josh also does a groovy Harrison Ford. A very groovy Harrison Ford.
I just finished watching Wendy and Lucy. I was thinking about making some joke about how Wendy and Lucy would be way better if it was Wendy and Lucy and Free Meatball Sandwiches or something, but I decided against. I really liked it. It kept popping up as a thing the computer thought I would like. The computer was right.
We also interviewed Jordan Morris last night. Ryan Patterson sat in with us for the evening. I thought it would be good to have him run our version of the board. Our the board isn’t much of a board though. All said, it was fun nonetheless.
Jordan has the gift of gab. He is a true gabthronologist. It was fun waxing poetic with someone who understands that the long form interviewish thing is a marathon and a sprint. It was fun having him do his thing.
June Diane Raphael dropped by for our first full length podcast of the new year. She was great and cool. She told many a fun story. It was also nice to kind of get the beginning of the year monkey off the proverbial back. We’ve some fun dudes and dudettes lined up. Listen and tell your friends.
Mike Sycz joins us for a short and sweet pod. We discuss the reason for the mini-hiatus and talk up plans for the new year. This is a re-upload. The first had some glitch. We’ve June Diane Raphael up next week. Stay tuned for good time fun!
The wonderfully affibale and comically comical Todd Strauss-Schulson dropped by the BuckLair for a chat about movies and life (but mostly movies). Aside from Josh, Todd is the first movie director to set foot in the lair. He was nothing short of amazing (though the ghetto toddies may have aided in his amazingness, I still content he would have been amazing nonetheless). That said, you should listen to his podcast and you should listen well.
Country music personality and overall good guy Mike Askay dropped in for the final podcast of the year. Mike is a country music player. You can hear his band here: Big Tweed. His band plays good time honky tonk music. You should listen to them and become pure and cool.
As always, you ought give a listen to our guest and the pod.
