Anarchy at Boys' State!

In this week's episode, Keith and Joe compare notes from the respective years they participated in the mind-fuck that is Buckeye Boys' State.

As an extra-special bonus supplement to this Conversation, here are a few random memories of my time at B.B.S. that didn't make it onto the show:
  • Most mornings, the guys in my dorm were woken up by one or another Boys' Stater blasting "Pour Some Sugar on Me" at top volume on their boom box. This was a long, long time ago, people.
  • The mandatory afternoon meetings were often enlivened when the National Guard Band the American Legionnaires brought in would play the Official State Rock Song of the Great State of Ohio: Hang on Sloopy. That's how goddamn boring the meetings were, folks.
  • The boys of Buckeye Boys' State were so desperate for female companionship after a week of utter Sausage Fest that we used to sneak into the Bowling Green ice arena to watch the figure skaters practicing. This is really only remarkable because I'm talking about fully one third of the participants at B.B.S.
By the way, nobody there actually called it "B.B.S.", but typing out Buckeye Boys' State over and goddamn over gets tiring. Anyway, give it a listen. We talk about non-Boys' State-related stuff, too.

Oscar? I Don't Even Know 'Er!

In this week's podcast, Keith and Joe go into some depth about just why this year's Oscar ceremony seems to have been scrapped from Satan's duodenum. Seriously, folks, the numbers appear to be up for this year's broadcast, but I'm of the opinion that everyone involved in the ceremony should be loaded onto a boat and then sunk. Baz Luhrmann should never be allowed to make another movie after the craptacular dance-straveganza he choreographed. This was twelve hours of my life I'll never get back.

We also touch on movie sequels that sucked ass, TV show-based video games that suck ass and ex-girlfriends that make us so very glad we married who we married.

So go give it a listen and then come back here and tell us your choices for the absolute worst movie follow-ups of all time. Or don't. We won't think less of you either way.

My Breakfast Reunion with Oscar Was Stimulating

For our landmark 15th episode, we decided to string together a bunch of unrelated topics and just blather on about them for awhile. It's really special.

The first topic is truly near and dear to my heart. In fact, I'd be delighted to hear what any of our listeners (we're going to go ahead and pretend that some exist) have to say on the subject of breakfast food. Favorites? Savory vs sweet? Egg style?

So give a listen and please feel free to share your thoughts with us. Hell, we might even mention you in our next podcast, as long as you also send a naked picture.

Zzzzzzz...Huh? Where Am I?

Hey! We're not dead!

Nine months since we last spoke, we're back with an all-new episode of The Conversation. Since all of our original listeners have long since died off, we're hoping to corrupt an entirely new generation of iTune customers.

So, whether you click on this link or go to the Recent Episode list to the right or just get it off of your iTunes feed, please enjoy the return of Mssrs. Baloneypants and Felcher, as we discuss fatherhood and Facebook and Farrack Fofama.
