Is This Thing On?

Hey folks. Bob here. Just wanted to tell anyone who might have stumbled across this site (at this point, I doubt anyone is actively seeking us out) what's going on and why we haven't been heard from in so very, very long.

Well, things have been a mite hectic for Karl and myself.

Karl's dog has been ill. So he's spent a good deal of time looking after the poor critter. On top of that, he's been training--as was mentioned in a previous podcast--for a late-night marathon in Tromso, Norway. In fact, he's in Norway as I write this.

And as for me, I'm not that busy, I'm just lame.

Because of all this, the hectic schedules and the lameness, The Conversation has kind of taken a back-seat to the rest of our lives.

Rest assured, though, we are simply on a hiatus. In fact, our long-awaited Salute to Shitty Cinema as been recorded and is simply awaiting some final edits from the busy, busy Karl. I promise you, we'll be back on our feet and spouting pointless nonsense that nobody wants to listen to before you know it.

Meanwhile, here's hoping that you're enjoying your summer and spending as much time as possible not vomiting.

We're Back!

Hey folks, just when you were starting to give up hope; just when you were tying your rope in a noose to hang yourself; just when everything was looking at its bleakest, The Conversation is back to give your life new meaning!

After a nearly six week hiatus during which Mr. Karl Baloneypants underwent the necessary surgery to transform him into Ms. Karen Baloneypants, The Conversation has returned.

So click here or, if you're a click-o-phobe, find us at or start up your iTunes and wait for us to drip like delicious filtered coffee onto your computer. Then, get ready to rock!

(Actually, there's nothing particularly "rockin'" about this episode. It's more like smooth jazz or contemporary R&B.)

Maybe it's just me. Maybe it's my imagination. But Joan Jett doesn't look the same to me. And not in a "getting older" kind of way. In a "I just had someone use a scalpel on my face" kind of way. I don't know. You all can judge for yourselves.

Maybe the incredible similarities between Michael J. Fox and Carmen Electra are just throwing me. I don't know.

Happier Than a Pig In Shit(ty Movies)

As mentioned in the now-available-for-download Episode 10, The Conversation is getting ready for our upcoming Salute to Shitty Movies!

Now, we're giving you the opportunity to join in the fun with our Conversation Home Game! Simply watch all four Shitty Movie selections (They Live, Cliffhanger, Road House & Silverado) and send us your feedback.

Which movie makes the best use of shitty dialogue? Which features the hammiest acting? Which makes you want to shout to the tree-tops that you're enamored of reveling in utter shit and which makes you want to call up God and demand two hours of your life back?

So get cracking, Convers-o-philes! Watch some utter crap and share your opinions. Because, at The Conversation, we really care what you think.

Sorry, strike that. That should have read, We "really" care what you think.

The Convys!

This is it! Awards season comes to an exciting conclusion as The Conversation presents the First Annual Convy Awards!

More star-studded than the Oscars! More relevant to the average American than the Grammys! Way, way butcher than the Tonys! It's like the Pullitzer Prize, if the Pullitzer people weren't a bunch of effete fucking douche-nuggets.

So strap on your headphones and be prepared to be absolutely fucking amazed. (Or maybe just a little annoyed. There's a whole range of emotional responses to this, actually.)

Episode 7 and Movie Minute Sketch are both up!

Loads of new content as always here at The Conversation!
Bob and I cut this one early this week, as I'm heading OUT of beautiful downtown Cleveland for a little vacation in a couple of days.

In the seventh episode, Bob and I tackle the week’s toughest issues, like how fast the revival of American Gladiators is decimating our country’s collective I.Q. Other topics include: Fun with Mike Tyson quotes, Postal Douchebaggery, Alpha Female Sitcoms, Listener Mail, and Super Tuesday: What next?

Despite my vacation, though, stay tuned to The Conversation, as next week could be the biggest and best episode yet! We've got a HUGE extravaganza planned for Episode 8, but right now it's a big ol' super-secret. In a couple of days, though, we'll be teasing it right here, on the ONLY BLOG that follows the every move of our podcast!

So get a-downloadin', and be sure to send us your feedback on this week's stuff!

To Douche and Douche Not

Bob Felcher here. I'm the macho half of the Conversation team. Yeah, when I'm not having sexual intercourse with women, I'm engaging in "extreme" activities that enhance my standing among other males. So look out! You never know when I might do something that's just really, really manly.

Anyway, I thought I'd take a moment to let both of our listeners know that, from time to time, we're going to take advantage of this here "weblog" you're looking at to post the occasional bit of bonus material that relates in some clever way to our show.

For instance, if we were to do a show in which we mentioned my astonishing sexual prowess, we might then post pictures of me engaging in sexual congress with one of the many, many ladies with whom I do that sort of thing. Because I'm so macho. Just as an example.

Today, though, I thought I'd treat everyone to the full, extended, director's cut list of movie titles from our Douchetacular. If you remember, which you most likely don't, we only got the time to go through five or six on the air. That's mostly because Karl couldn't come up with anymore, as he doesn't have as much testosterone as me.

So here, then, is my list of Douche Movies. I'm macho.

The Douche and Mrs. Muir


The Douchefather

Schindler’s Douche

Douchin’ in the Rain

It’s a Wonderful Douche

The Douche on the River Kwai

"The Conversation" takes iTunes by emm effing STORM!

Your favorite podcast and mine has gone "legit!" Bob and I are now officially listed in iTunes Music Store, in the Podcasts section, pigeonholed in the Politics & News category. Now, if you've listened to our shows, you'll know that we're way more diverse than that, but hey, iTunes needs some kind of category from us, so what can you do?

If any of you faithful listeners would like to be the first to write an iTunes review (keep it truthful), we'd certainly appreciate it!

Legions of listeners are just around the corner!

Viva la conversacion!
