My guests are stand up comic (just did Letterman!) Michael Palascak and comic Mike Schmidt (who has a great podcast @the40yearoldboy). It’s easily the fastest hour fifteen ever! Mike loves chaos and comics (pre 1990) and Michael gets to talk somewhere near the end (cuz I talk a lot about chaos too) about Harry Potter and it’s awesome. I push Unwritten again. Enjoy!

May 23, 2011

My guests were my traveling companions for the last couple weeks in Africa and the Middle East. Vargus Mason was the author of this tour and then got hurt and had to fly home before the end of the tour. So we're debriefing him a bit... April Macie and, not on this episode, our other traveling companion, Alycia Cooper kept on. Because, in the military, it's "no one left behind." In comedy, it's "sure. We’ll go on." and then, belatedly, "the show must go on." Alycia will have rebuttal time when I’m in NY or figure out to record via Skype!

 

Disclaimer… I express opinions about other people’s standup comedy and, as we know… all comedy is awesome and everyone’s journey is fantastic. But podcasts are people occassionally saying things they regret. When it was live there was all kinds of that... it seems cheating to edit it out. So, welcome to a less attractive part of my brain. I just love some things that were said OFF stage that I wish, and I get to wish, would be said ON stage.

 

Thanks for listening. Take care of each other out there, Jackie

May 20, 2011

It’s another Dork Expedition out and about. We meet dorks in their natural habitat! Branwyn Bigglestone works at Image Comics and her mom (Janet Winter) owns Games of Berkley. We wander.

 

I didn’t edit this AT ALL before going to the Middle East. My use of language in this episode is randomly inaccurate. Fantastic. I just let Pat sound fix this so it’s more meander-y than I might have let it be if I edited. I hope you enjoy it. I had a blast. At Image it’s chatty with a lot of us talking … and I have a hard time leaving and it digresses into lunch talk.

 

Then we go to the toy store and talk about toys. At length. At the end of the interview we find out that Janet designs costumes and then it’s back to CONS… more convention talk. Obviously... sitting down with Branwyn's mom, in the future, to get some dork history, is in order.

This is a walking dork expedition to Atlas Coffee Importers in Seattle with Craig Holt. David Crowe knew I would be fascinated. And so it came to pass. It might be loud, but it’s awesome.

 

Because of the guerilla nature of the taping, there is background noise and I would love your feedback. Do you like the dork expedition idea… it should be able to be done better with other equipment (Patrick had suggestions).

 

Notes:

Green Coffee Assoc. (Oh… if it’s good to know, I want to know it)

Coffee became a commodity – 1615?

Specialty Coffee Assoc. of America (SCAA not SCAJ)

The Roasters Guild – and its retreat

I was going to end it there… and then… we just kept talking J

Wild Mountain Café – where we had lunch. I’ve deleted us ordering. It was excellent.

Intelligencia  Coffee Shop - Silverlake coffee shop Craig likes. (there are some in other cities too).

Urth Caffe  - West Hollywood coffee shop and restaurant. Fancy. Nice.

David Crowe knows about Nuclear power! Chernobyl article I reference.

Feel free to play the game where you try to hear the waitress’s political opinion in the background.

Pollination of Coffee Plants – too much info and, certainly not all of it

 

Okay – seriously, I could have kept recording Craig and Dave and, probably, eating, forever. But we’re at an hour. I’ll have him on again, because he’s fascinating. And not just about coffee. I sense untapped depths. I’d also like to have David talk about his copious number of hobbies and stand up.

 

Thanks for listening to this expedition out into the world to find Dorks in their natural habitats. Thanks for the orders and the donations this week and, as always, thanks for listening. Take care of each other out there, Jackie

This is the first LIVE Dork Forest. In Seattle, before a live audience, I talked with Ed Brubaker and Kermet Apio . Ed is a multi-Eisner Award winning writer of many of the comic books I read. I dork out about HIM a bit and we talked movies and comics and politics and television. It was awesome. Kermet is a great comic (winner of the Great American Comedy Festival) and you should go watch him do it a lot.

Eric Drysdale writes for The Colbert Report and I wasn’t too dorky about that. But I wanted to be. Instead I let him dork out about his freaking love of 3D and the Viewmaster and how it’s all come together for a live show that he does The Man With F.E.E.E.T. (here in LA March 16, 2011 downtown, details on the website). You can also just get a viewmaster and the “reels” on that website to enjoy in your own home. I learned stuff about cameras and the history of the Viewmaster. It’s a great ep.

 

Notes:

Parlor StereoScope

ViewMaster (wiki, origin story)

Viewmaster – Fisher Price

Tru-Vue

Canon Hackers Dev Kit

High Dynamic Range Photography

 

What Eric enjoyed recently that might interest you:

Andy Warhol Diaries

The Rise and Fall of the Bible

Charles Phoenix LA 3D collector

 

And I talk about this book I enjoy a great deal:

The Gospel According to Jesus – Stephen Mitchell

My guests are Gariana Abeyta, projectionist at the ArcLight Cinema and the Silent Movie Theatre, (@garianaabeyta on twitter) and twitter monster Alison Agosti (@Just_Alison on twitter). This show is a little GRAPHIC. It is not Gariana’s fault. It’s Alison’s fault. And… my own. This is an admittedly weird ep. I kinda love it. Not even kinda.

 

BTW: THE DOORBELL RANG… at 5:35ish… you hear the doorbell ring, I say, “I never do this… I’m going to PAUSE the show” and then… I DIDN’T hit record again and it’s 20 minutes later when I realize. THEN... BONUS: you hear Patrick Brady with the explanation! He's GREAT. Let's all admit it.

Also, In this ep,
I prove again that I still don’t know who anyone is.

 

 Mulholland – this is “the man’s” version (or you could see Chinatown)

 

Rubber – sheriff (there’s “lieutenant”) Yeah. It does look fantastic.

Dogtooth – streaming on Netflix

Placenta Hippie eating thing – I thought about linking it … you can Google if you want cuz it’s too graphic already.
15 min of taping… I pour coffee loud, Gariana stirs too loud.
M. Night Shyamalan – is from India

Brody Stevens has control over his bodily functions. Zack Bro-mance example – watch Between Two Ferns

Xbox – Fable III

The Big Easy Soundtrack

Ned Beatty

Gift of the Magi

Island of the Blue Dolphins

Unfamiliar Fishes

Greg Beherendt and Dave Anthony are my guests. They are really funny comics and have their own podcast Walking the Room.  This is, if I may say, another great episode MOSTLY about stand up. We all, really, say TOO much. Also, this was taped March 3rd… perhaps I am the only person who didn’t know who Snooki was or is and what #winning meant… but I feel somehow stronger because of it. I was reminded how to grow brussel sprouts this week. Would tiger blood be a good fertilizer?

 

Greg is at Laughs in Kirkland, WA this weekend

Dave is at Cobbs Comedy Club in San Francisco this weekend

Do you live in Seattle? Stand Up Show tickets now available for my March 28th show w Rylee NewtonJ!

My guests this episode are Karen Rontowski (stand up comic and host of www.supernaturaljunkyard.com) and Jen Kirkman (writer, stand up comic and regular on the Chelsea Handler show). Get this – they both love ghosts and UFO’s and Tarot cards and Karen does a real Tarot card reading. This is a great episode.

 

Note: For those of you who believed Mazes & Monsters, Tarot card reading is also non-threatening. Remember, everything on TDF is about choice and support. Safe space people.

 

I nominated my collaboration with Greg Franklin for an online comedy award... feel free to nominate it as well (can't hurt,right?): this cartoon if you wish at http://www.thecomedyawards.com/categories/viewers-choice/best-viral-video

 

Ghost Radar App – when I looked for this app I found this in a comment section (about something else), “I downloaded the Facebook and Visual Voicemail apps to my Droid and then uninstalled them. However, the icons are still on my phone” duh duh dum! So beware! (I’m kidding)

Ghost Hunters Survival Guide – book that Karen refers to by two different titles but this was the correct one… she says it’s great!

Pittsfield and Needham, MA

 

Air Force UFO Wired Article – I can’t find a US Congress reference - there was “a congress” but… perhaps @jenkirkman on twitter can find it J

Vegas UFO – I can’t find a reference to the Art Bell story. Grr.

Good Omens – Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett (this is a great read. Quick, funny, smart… great book).

Rider-Waite Tarot Deck – Wiki article… take with grain o’ salt.

Power psychic Network – Karen recommends this place

Rachel Zoe – Bravo Channel – show Jen enjoys.

Nixonland – Jen Kirkman suggested book to read

Never Give In To Fear - Book that Karen recommended

My guest this episode is Jimmy Pardo, host and creator of the fantastic podcast Never Not Funny. He's such a fascinating comic that it took most of the show for me to get to the fact that he’s a Fantasy Baseball dork. Fantasy Baseball seems to be that you get a list of players and you WATCH their stats for the season. Fascinating! You will note how much I like Jimmy because I won’t let him talk. I beginning to see it as a symptom of something.

 

I sound like I still have some sort of head infection, don’t I? Boo. I had an ear infection and it’s moved to my sinuses (as my acupuncturist said - English not her first language – though MUCH better than my Cantonese, “behind your face is one piece of meat.” i.e. the infection has spread). My Ear, Nose and Throat doctor tested my hearing and I’ve lost 30% in my right ear. But he doesn’t know what to do about it. His recommendation? That I send a video to SNL to audition for them. i.e. I need a new ENT guy.

 

Topics covered:

Morning Radio: Bob & Tom, Dudley & Bob (Austin, TX), Todd and Tyler, Jim Johnson (Detroit), Dick Purtan,

Boy Scouts

Musicals: Spring Awakening, RENT, Gnomio and Juliet, Ponyo
Television and Movies: Flipper (old MOVIE) Flipper (old SHOW) Flipper (new adventures) High Society, Holiday Inn

Chromeo – MUSIC! …of a sort. The video for Hot Mess feels very 1983.

Nancy Grace – Jimmy: not political, but does have an opinion.(Website proves our point).

Jon Krakauer - Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman, Under the Banner of Heaven.

Pat Benetar Autobiography

Pat Francis (Pardo’s friend and great comic)

Kathy Griffin Autobiography

Danielle Koenig – writer, comic, married to Jimmy.

Fantasy Baseball – Yeah… I have to have him back on to talk about this!!

Animated joke – my joke animated by Greg Franklin

Jelly Car 3 – full disclosure: Andy designed some of the levels of this game!

Brody Stevens – baseball dork, actor and really funny comic.

Jimmy’s website and links to his schedule and merch at the top of the page

 

I like that we think we’re done at 59min and then… we go for another 9 minutes… Because I like Jimmy Pardo. I hope you do too.

My guests this episode are James Urbaniak, (follow on twitter @jamesurbaniak) actor and the voice of Dr. Venture on The Venture Bros. and Murray Valeriano comedian and comedy writer (follow on twitter @murrayv). We talked the heck out of old Hollywood and acting. Animation and children’s music were lightly touched upon but the works of Charles Laughton were full on dorked out upon to the point that I’ve added some movies to my Netflix Queue.

 

Charles Laughton (Ruggles of Red Gap has been added, a fitting sequel to my OTHER Laughton experience.

New York comics Rob Stern (twitter @actionstern) and Abigoliah stop in to talk about their obsessions with Action Figures, Video Games, Dinosaurs and Yoga. And Abigoliah’s Mom let her change her name when she was about 13. How many of us can say THAT? They have a podcast called Pass the Carrots that I am going to be on at some point and, on that, they talk about stand up comedy – a LOT.

Andrew Deutsch and David Nett are this week's guests. They've made a dorky dorky show for the internet called GOLD - an RPG web series. http://www.goblinsandgold.com/csp/gold/.

We talked Dungeons and Dragons and Board Games and, in the end... found that another episode of TDF is going to be needed to talk about comic books and FONTS... the exciting world of Kerning MUST be examined!

Reccomended reading from David, George RR Martin - Game of Thrones and listening from Andrew, The Sountrack to How to Train Your Dragon. Which I cannot find for sale. Awww.... ask Andrew on Twitter (@rollandglass) and then for fun... @davidnett is on twitter too! Fun! I'm in Minneapolis this week at ACME Comedy Company Downtown if you're around. Come say hi.
