Daily mediocrity since 2003 from Portland, Oregon.

The whole show fell down and bumped its head today. And then someone named Ryan Fleming pulled it up - but it was too late. We'd already gone Flipmode. Luckily, it seems the rest of the world joined in - how did Occupy Portland do over the weekend? Why isn't …
Mike Russell just set a bag of money on fire. But from the ashes of that fire rises something awesome: Sabretooth Vampire Season 2 - the release date is announced, the party is scheduled, and then, as a follow-up, Mike helped fix religion entirely. As in - it can't possibly …
Think of today's show as a big, thick sandwich. On either side of the sandwich is the bun - fluffy, tasty, empty carbs of conversation, in which Byron Beck tries to confound Big Jim Willig and our fearless hosts with tales of celebrity gossip, sexual misconduct, superhero surgeries and the …
The show begins with a kerfuffle betwixt Messrs. Cort and Fatboy, right in front of Courtenay Hameister, who holds the listeners hands as we plunge behind the curtain and discover some interesting things about how they fight, how they clean up, and why the bathtub is a place to be …
Today's theme? Paranoia. Watching The Thing with Mike Russell kinda ruined Dave Walker's day, and got us all focused on the idea of being subsumed by some shapeless other - which immediately led Dave to discuss The New Institutions: YouTube, Google, and Internet Memes - is the dying conventional media …
Impossible Dreams might actually be realized - it just depends on how big your dreams are. And if your dream suffers Arrested Development, then good news; it looks as if you're going to get your 4th season and a movie. This discussion between Aaron Duran and Ryan Fleming spawns a …
Mike Russell engages in some rousing of the rabble today - someone asked him to go to a christian college and speak about the genre of film known as Christploitation. This leads into a discussion on Jesus in cinema, Mike's REM moment in college, and why Mormons are such rich …
Byron Beck dances into the fire - the fire of accidental inappropriateness. His Mary Tyler Moore morning is shattered by a single picture that throws the whole show into turmoil. Big Jim helps discover where the lines in a friendship are drawn once photographs of...more PRIVATE things start being shared. …
The Madness was truly inspired today, when Courtenay Hameister sat down and pulled the mic close to her face. She started to talk about the parking situation that has waylaid our previous guests, and somehow got pulled into a world of thousand island dressing, Bra tacos, The uselessness of the …
David Walker wants to shine a light on the words the Powers That Be don't want you reading. It's Banned Books month, and one of the best books he's ever written is on that list, along with some other Young Adult classics that kids need to be exposed to, not …
Aaron Duran took a sandwich vacation. Ryan Fleming survived the treacherous fields of Weekend Kickball. Cort did not fare so well. Battered and bruised, both Fleming and Webber soldier through a show wherein Fatboy challenges the world to deny that Cheddar Rold Gold pretzels are the new best snack ever, …
To spoil, or not to spoil - why is it even a question? Mike Russell weighs in on a classic Fatboy slip-up, and it leads to an involved discussion on the nature of storytelling - why plot is so important to some people, and why others prefer characterization, and how …
Byron Beck comes loaded with all sorts of embarrassing tales. Embarrassing if you're an old NFL Star, an old Grunge-hanger on, a shopper at The Squire Shop, and Barry Manilow. Big Jim describes his meeting with Harrison Ford on the set of Witness. Byron laments the X-Factor being a crappy …
This is what happens when you give Courtenay Hameister carte blanche - you get a long discussion on the politics of horribly insensitive humor, the faux-outrage people wallow in when sticking up for others they don't even know, earnest pleas to dive inside Steve-O's cerebral cortex, and an examination of …
David Walker: Statesman. Scholar. Loverboy aficionado. Listen to him as he winds his way through a conversation that begins with a reflection on why Bill Cosby, Richard Pryor and Chris Rock are all part of the same comedic genius lineage, and why Eddie Murphy probably doesn't deserve to be included …
Oh, Netflix. You make people so angry! Ryan Fleming returns to help unpack the furor over their latest brouhaha, and he also helps mock Cort for his failures on the field of Kickball - Learn what happens when the Captain joins an adult kickball league without doing his due diligence. …
The venn diagram of friendships at Portland, when given more than 6 months, tends to shrink to the size of a dime. That phenomenon is one of the subjects of conversation with Mike Russell, along with his resurrected germophobia, thanks to the film Contagion. Other topics include - the sad …
Jefferson Smith announced he was running for Mayor of Portland yesterday. Today he's on the show. This is no small feat, considering he was working so hard on his campaign that he forgot to take his contacts out, they fused to his cornea, and he damn near tore his eyes …
Another dose of that good old fashioned "real talk" is served up on today's show, courtesy David Walker, of course, who always gets down to the grittiest of nittys whenever any subject comes up, and today's subject involves artificiality, and its uses as both a means to grow an audience, …
Anno Superstar drops in to lend a little overseas flavor, luckily Aaron Duran's questionable judgment as her ward didn't completely incapacitate her: What it's like getting off a plane and immediately being thrown into a living room filled with drunk pirates is explained, as is the daily routine of the …
