Ep. 1001: Where we're covered with scorpions Video
Say what you want about Vin Diesel's current choice of movie roles, but we have to give the guy credit for his performance in the film "Boiler Room." One of Jeff's friends found a peculiar flier referencing the movie at a job fair at Rutgers University, so we spend the first few minutes of today's show chatting about that, then move onto the strange phenomenon of Opera Software receiving e-mails from Oprah fans that can't get the spelling correct.
The 1990s produced so many of our favorite music, movies, toys, and TV shows that we're making this a tribute to the decade. We're talking Supersoakers, TGIF, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Green Day, Dumb & Dumber, Seinfeld, Nerf Guns, Discmans, and more!
Today's episode of The 404 Podcast starts with a big change in the show title format. That's right, we're now announcing the date with the episode number and name. Can you feel the excitement?
Today's show title is a little deceptive, and we should be clear that Alison Rosen's mother does not make an appearance on this episode, but Alison's all we need anyway because she's the future of television! We're excited to have her back after a long hiatus, and she updates us on everything going on in her life, including ALISON ROSEN IS YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND, a new weekly interactive show on Ustream that features guests like Michael Showalter and Andrew W.K., in addition to an upcoming segment where Alison will explore the world of online dating. Be sure to add her on Twitter to stay updated.
Did you know that Dave Chappelle was in a "Home Improvement" spinoff sitcom show in the 1990s? All the episodes are on YouTube right now, and we'll trace its history on today's 404 episode.
We're finally able to use today's show title, thanks to a new Kickstarter campaign about new kiosks in 7-11 stores that keep a record of your house keys for when you inevitably lose them in a drunken mishap.
Artist and newly crowned TV show host ANDREW WK joins The 404 today in what might be the crowning moment of our careers. We run the gamut in our extra-long show--we chat about his music career, an upcoming album, his new show "Destroy Build Destroy," and Jeff and I actually reveal our two chance encounters with the man. IT'S TIME TO PARTY!
Aside from today's show having the best title ever, we're chatting with Bridget Carey about Google I/O 2013 and nerd fights. All this plus a new contest giveaway!
Comedian Marc Maron usually interviews his friends on his WTF Podcast, but today we're turning the tables and getting his take on tracking down Internet trolls, his development as a humorist, and his new TV show on IFC.
We have no idea what today's show title means, so we're happy to welcome Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg back on the show to spell it out for us. He's also here to officially kick off "The Audiophillie Music Awards for Excellence in Recorded Sound" contest! Read Steve's blog on the contest here. Keep in mind that this is not "American Idol," so entries won't be judged by musical talent, but on the quality of the recording itself.
