The Idiots return!! Recording on Sunday at the Generals home we delve into topics of playoffs and predictions, MLB and NHL, and other sports discussions. Next, Lance regals us with a tale of being responsible and how no good deed goes unpunished. We also ask the age old question of the lesser of two evils: Tweakers VS Crack Heads! Yes, there is a difference. Listen to find out and enjoy.
This week it's just Lance and Berg recording late on a Tuesday night like in the old days of Taco Tiki Tuesday. We crown Big Cat the champ of his biggest loser contest and and get an update on what has been going on with him recently, a trip to the NFC Championship game in Seattle. Then Berg talks new albums, Against Me!, and Boba Fett tattoos which segway nicely into a discussion about Disney and their properties. Rounding it up with casting rumors, future comic movies, fan casting JLA and all things Sherlock. Enjoy Ladies and Gentlemen, and of course, our Listeners.
We give you...Before Jon
Welcome back to Funny! We start out the show discussing the fact that the General is going to Vegas. With vacation on his mind, he wants to know where we want to travel. Anywhere in the world, and more importantly why? We move on to talk about the latest performance enhancement scandal in baseball. This time Ryan Braun is the dumbass, again. Since we were already on the subject of baseball, Big Cat has the guys play a game of guessing the World Series odd of each team now that the All Star Game has passed. We were ready on the topic of gambling, so the guys make a bet on the name of the new spawn that could one day be the King of England. We end the show discussing the just announced Superman/Batman Movie.
Fucking With Source Material
This week it is just Lance & Berg, as Mills had a prior commitment. It is our monthly “What’s Happening” show. With only two of us, our discussion take NUMEROUS tangents, but still we have our normal fair of events to discuss. The Rose Festival is still ongoing, and the Grand Floral Parade is Saturday June 8th downtown. Berg has a couple of concerts that he is planning on checking out, see the list below. There are also a couple big name Comedians coming to town. Tracy Morgan will be in town on the 13th at the Newmark Theatre . Pauly Shore, yes that Pauly Shore, will be at the Harvey's Comedy Club on June 21ST. Finally, Bill Maher will be cracking wise about politics at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall on June 23rd. We mixed in a little sports talk, we had to after seeing how well the Oregon Colleges are doing in Baseball this spring. Of course we didn’t forget about the movies. There is a sure fire Blockbuster, as well as a Casey Movie Pick.
Going Off Topic
They guys get together for their weekly chat. They start off recapping the experience going to the Fathom Events playing Star Trek: the Next Generation’s classic two parter “Best of Both Worlds”. This unique setting allowed plenty of fodder for comedy gold. After a slight delay, we realize that this is our what’s happening in May show. On May 26th is the 10k Rum Run in Tualatin, running with the booze involved. How can that be anything but a good idea? There are also two comedians coming to town this month, Amy Schumer and Bill Cosby. If you need some spiritual enlightenment, the Dalai Lama will be in town on the 9th. Berg and Mills have a concert list coming to town this month for you to check out: Mumford & Sons, Primus, Young Turks, Cake, and Ozomatli. There is one day in May that you shouldn’t miss; Mother’s Day is May 12th. If you need an idea for a gift for Mom, check out the Crafty Wonderland. Mills is in town to be able experience his first Rose Festival. Instead, he would rather participate in Cosplay at Wonder NW. Finally, after getting through the cultural events going on, the guys get into the meat & potato of the happens of May, the Movie Releases. The guys are stoked for the movie releases.
This week we have our monthly what’s happening in Portland show for April. We start off with a bang and get right into it with Star Trek the Next Generation: Best of Both Worlds coming to a theater near you. If Trek isn’t your thing, there is a comedy festival occurring April 18-21st, Bridgetown Comedy Fest. Speaking of smiling, if you attend and/or participate in, the Portland Soapbox Derby and don’t have a good time, there is something it the matter with you. Do you think the guys should participate in the event? Let us know. April also brings us opening day of baseball. The guys of course make World Series projections. Lance will be heading to Stumptown Comic Fest, which leads Berg to ask an interesting question, with unlimited resources, what would your cosplay costume be? After the normal movie and concert talk, full concert list below, the guys pull out the old man card. They pose the question, what the kids of today will miss out on due to the fact they didn't grow up in the 90’s. Listen and Enjoy.

We start off talking about some recent casting Hollywood has done. Now that Megan Fox has been cast as the female lead in Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, read April O’Neil, the guys decide to cast the rest of the movie. As the discussion moves on, the Lone Ranger and white wash casting of Johnny Depp as Tonto is flushed out. Absurd Arguments is back this week, where we argue whether you'd rather go see a Ke$ha or Tim McGraw concert and why. After a little more comic book talk, we end the show talking about Star Trek: Into the Darkness and who Benedict Cumberbatch will be playing, or at least currently rumored to be playing. Give it a listen, and let us know what you think.
