Join us for fabulous interviews, spoofs, parodies, News of the Weird & Wonderful, Interviews to the Max (or on the Phrytz), and advice from Dog Abby.

Did you feel that?We discussed the inescapable subject of the last few days, the earthquake. Although it struck our neighbors in Cali really hard, we only felt mild tremors here in Vegas. We are thankful that no one died, and send our well-wishes to everyone affected.The Dictatorship Begins…Okay, actually it doesn't. In our opinion, President Trump's Independence Day tribute to the armed forces was a moving experience, despite his unfortunate flub with the TelePrompter. (On a side note, a lot of the resulting memes were freaking hilarious!) We loved the presentation, and we think it's refreshing to see a group of people who still value the ideals that made us exceptional in the first place.

Upside-down clown world
Jun 25 2019 • 171 min
Welcome to upside-down clown world!We start out with Saul Alinsky’s 13 Rules for Radicals(published in 1971)1. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.“ Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people.“ It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.“ Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.“ If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.“ There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.“ They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.“ Don’t become old news.8. “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.“ Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.“ Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.10.“The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.” It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.11. “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.“ Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.“ Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.13. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.“ Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.Honk HonkTrump is in trouble for NOT bombing IranBlack men Coleman Hughes & Burgess Owens are racist because they DON’T want to be treated like slavesMeanwhile, Corey Booker, a MILLIONAIRE, wants themSexualizing young boys in dresses is “progress” and you’re a bigot if you disagreeFree speech is hate speechFeminists want to not only destroy Capitalism, they want to destroy the FAMILYThe FBI is infiltrating 4-chan to stave off terrorism Agent Orange is on it!News of the Weird and WonderfulOwl Missed The Man Who Saved Her So Much She Couldn’t Stop Hugging Him

A show fit for a typewriter
Jun 05 2019 • 180 min
Jim pitches a fit for a typewriterJim has placed a bid for a manual typewriter on eBay. (Postscript: He was outbid at literally the last second. Effing eBay.) He plans to get a typewriter for a couple of upcoming creative projects, particularly National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). His loving wife argues that he "never used the one he had before." His prior typewriter was a fully refurbished (at Jim's expense) 1950s-era Royal Quiet De Luxe-the same brand and model used by Ernest Hemingway and Ian Fleming-that had been owned by his father, and yes, he did occasionally use it, though not as frequently as he maybe should have. It was a work of art. His next one will not likely be quite so nice as that. For now, just an inexpensive, working, portable machine is all he requires. Jim's rationale is that it will help with his creativity, and allow him to stay focused on the writing rather than fall down multiple rabbit holes when he should be producing. (Plus, he can set up at a coffee shop or library without needing a plug-in.)Jim made a live pledge to use a typewriter to complete his 50,000 word requirement for NaNoWriMo in November. If he wins, he can upgrade his typewriter as his fancy allows, without any…um…feedback from his wife. Plus, ya know, bragging rights. (He will not collect typewriters. The upgrade will be his final typewriter purchase, as long as it lasts.) If Melanie wins (that is, if he hits 49,999 words or fewer), he must endure a full-length, live interview with Melanie…and she can ask him anything. Let that sink in…she can ask him ANYTHING. Live. And he is required to tell the truth, no matter how painful or embarrassing. Things are going to be interesting this fall.News of the Weird and WonderfulA sweet tale: the son who reinvented sugar to help diabetic dadDolphins join surfing class at California beach‘Risky’ Playgrounds Are Making a ComebackFamily Moves To Japan, Gets Adorable Letter From NeighborIrish students break back-patting world recordPetco will no longer sell pet food with artificial ingredientsHero Biker Helps Father Get Unconscious Daughter To The Hospital Through Heavy Traffic Want to try a burger dripping with Nutella?
