Jesse visits The Longshot

| 0 comments

The kind folks behind The Longshot Podcast (Sean Conroy, Eddie Pepitone, Jamie Flam and Amber Kenny) invited me over for a recording session the other day, and I had a great time. You can listen to the show here. I'd like to imagine that me complaining about pupuserias was the highlight, but it was actually Eddie talking about calling phone sex lines while subletting. Sean, by the way, will be joining his Asssscat colleagues at MaxFunCon 2011.

Jordan Jesse Game: The Cut Scenes

After a great pledge drive, I thought I'd share this bit of content with everyone - until now, it was only available on our DVD. These are the animated cutscenes from Jordan, Jesse, Game!, written and directed by Dan Henrick with special guests Andy Daly and John Hodgman.

Judge John Hodgman Episode 17: Parents Just Don't Understand

Should a father be able to compell his teenage daughter to watch classic films? Or does a 16-year-old deserve autonomy in her entertainment choices?

Plaintiff Avigayil brings this case against her father, Michael. You can find the evidence submitted by both parties after the jump.

As always, you can subscribe to the Judge John Hodgman podcast in iTunes or using this feed.

RIP, Nate Dogg

| 0 comments

The Long Beach Press-Telegram is reporting that Nate Dogg is dead at 41. The greatest singer in hip-hop history, though I suppose that's a bit of an odd distinction. If I might recommend a record to appreciate Nate beyond the expected, try his album "Music & Me," which features the track above, I Pledge Allegiance. It's a really solid LP, criminally underappreciated in my opinion, and this particular track, which features past TSOYA guest Pharoahe Monch, is one of the highlights. I also love "I Got Love," which I've also included above.

Below, I've included a Nate-heavy 213 track that always makes me feel fantastic, "I'm Fly."

Nate and his voice will be missed.

Jesse and Jordan are joined by Al Madrigal and Gene O'Neill, plus MaxFunPals My Brother, My Brother & Me and Stop Podcasting Yourself for the live finale of the MaxFunDrive.

We weren't going to podcast this, but since we met our goal and our listeners were so generous, we decided... what the heck?

My Brother, My Brother and Me 46: Todd N' Tony Stew

| 3 comments

On this week's episode, we take a short victory lap for the successes and triumphs of the Maximum Fun Drive. Actually, we don't take an actual lap, as we're all pretty out of shape, and that would make for some pretty bad radio. Just know that when we talk about Tyra Banks as a Street Fighter, we're doing so with victorious vim.

Suggested talking points: Squatters' rights, Love me like Jerry, George Lopez: The Chair, Eeney-Meeney, Veggiefriends, Cool.com, Eyebraushes, The Power of Love, Bathtub Broth
