Daily mediocrity since 2003 from Portland, Oregon.

It's all about the fights with Mike Russell tonight. It makes sense, considering today is the day The Hunger Games came out. But the generational bloodshed is not merely contained on the silver screen. Mike, Cort and Bobby come to the uncomfortable realization that they're likely on the wrong side …
I'm fairly certain that's not supposed to taste like that. At all. Download audio file (03222012.mp3)
Courtenay Hameister plays lead on a smooth jazz sort of show that hits minor key notes of awkwardness and self-improvement. It starts with an unfortunate case of damp ass, and moves towards how best to bail out of awkward conversations, before gliding sideways into self-improvement by way of finding out …

David Walker rides herd over a pop-culture stampede that rolls over the show, thanks to Vulture's Top 25 TV show bracket, and the horrible, terrible choices their writers are making, which leads to discussions about things like Cagney and Lacey, and the sultry, simmering sexuality of Jerry Orbach. MadTV is …

This is a show all about cutting out things you don't need. Cort and Bobby cut out the pretense and get straight to hurr-ing it up post-haste. Mike Daisey cuts out personal responsibility when securing himself a place on NPR's air. Gamers cut out all reason and go straight to …

Been awhile since a good, old-fashioned nerd out happened with Mike Russell, but boy do we get our geek on today. It starts with an extended riff on the daily wars we all wage in the world of Words with Friends, and Mike's newest battlefield, Draw Something. And then it …
I could try to offer an explanation, but we both know there isn't one. Download audio file (03152012.mp3)
Are you easily infuriated? Maybe this show will set you off. Bobby's easily infuriated. He raises his voice more than a few times during today's discussion with Courtenay Hameister about the ongoing war on women's health. Which means the topic of today's show is mostly political, although everyone still finds …

David Walker was doing so well last week. And then his stomach turned violently against him, just hours before he had to sit on a stage with Amy Heckerling. The adventure that ensued was thrilling, and inspirational. If by inspirational you mean it inspired Bobby to direct the worst John …

Before Ryan Fleming joins the show in-progress, Cort describes a weekend full of politicking and plant-box building, while Bobby wonders why, out of all the chewy things on earth, the substance that gets named "Chew" is the really, really gross one that doesn't involve chewing. It's at that point Mr. …

Some of Mike Russell's favorite movies can be described as a creative person's brain opening up and exploding volcanically, like the poster to Terry Gilliam's Brazil. Today's show is like three volcanoes simultaneously erupting and splattering all over the inside of a cavern of conversation that leaves a fusillade of …
The discount meats were a bad choice. Download audio file (03082012.mp3)
It is a show that begins with an examination of the writings of John Irving, and it is a show that ends with cakefarts. That is to say - it is a show under the influence of Courtenay Hameister, who shares stories of her time in The Ditty Twisters, a …

The show starts slow, with a fatigued David Walker, who springs to life at the opportunity to tell tales of what a BadAzz Li'l Mofo he was in middle school, leading Cort to share stories of his career as a friend-pusher. From there, we check in on Super Tuesday, and …

We're not trapped in here with you. You're trapped in here with us. And Ryan Fleming isn't here to save you. It's just us, this chloroform rag, this cozy car-trunk, and about 30 different forking digressions poorly disguising themselves as a coherent discussion. Topics include: How best to clear a …

The show is laid out like this: Mike Russell brings his friend Ryan McCluskey into the show with him. There are stories about going home slightly soused and watching an insane Thai kung-fu movie. And then there's stories about trawling the blogs for reviews of McCluskey's performance on Grimm, and …
This one gets weird. Big Jim tells the tale of how he got robbed by a couple middle schoolers while trying to buy a dimebag on a Philadelphia college campus, followed by Cort telling the story of how his brother almost blew his leg off. It's a good thing there's …
The leap day has done crazy things to today's show, and Courtenay Hameister's head. But we can blame that on the Pop Rocks, one of the many unwanted candies brought to the show by Shelley McLendon and Michael Fetters of Sweat and The Aces. That candy fueled about 65 minutes …
If today's conversation had a pedometer it would have read that we'd gone around the world and back again in just under 75 minutes with David Walker. It starts with some absentminded musing on who the 5 coolest men to have lived in the 20th Century are - and somehow …
I expect the comments section to fill up after today's show. How could it not, when Ryan Fleming opens himself in a way he's never done on the show before: Learn about his high-school fights, the passions that drive him, and the shocking lack of weiner-wraps provided at Apple parties. …
