Libby And Friends Chat About Some Things

Merry Christmas and welcome to the second annual LAFCAST Holiday Spectacular! The gang's all here for the holidays, and they've got a great show in store for you! They talk about all kinds of Christmasy topics, such as vasectomies at the dentist, date-rape vs. manly coercion, and Jon's gender-confused firstborn. Libby reveals his childhood jealousy of Christ and offends black people AND gay people with a flippant remark about Kwanzaa, Franson poo-poos the Golden Birthday and gets Baby Jesus confused with Hitler, Jon reveals how thorough and creepy a pizza boy he is, and Daniel comes up with a Gun-To-Your-Head that may or may not be sponsored by Oscar Mayer. It's all here in this very merry Christmas Spectacular! Jewbilee!!!

Episode 32: The Green Nautical Mile (AKA The One With That Annoying Crackling Noise)

GUTEN TAG, and welcome back from LAFCAST's traditional autumn 3-month hiatus! The following podcast hails from early October, but due to personal issues (school, musicals, gettin' a girlfriend,) Libby finally throws it all together to kick off a December to remember. This episode features the long-delayed return of "ShaDaniel" Kelly, as well as a brand-new, very special guest...a REALLY ANNOYING CRACKLY BACKGROUND NOISE! Sorry, folks, you'll just have to bear with it...we couldn't fix it in post. This prodigal podcast features the (un?)timely death of a 100-year-old hussy, a revisitation of the Sonny Bono impression, the invention of the words "Rimshaw," "Rickjob" and "Apostrawberry," and insight into the tao of the Gas Station Clerk. Daniel decides on which limbs to live without, and Libby rags on pro wrestling announcers and today's "urban youth." After a brief remembrance of Goosebumps books, the twin quasars of podcasting decide to rate the hotness of favorite female TV characters after spending the better part of the podcast audibly fawning over Alison Brie. (Deepest apologies go out to any girlfriends I may or may not have acquired during the time between recording and posting this podcast...) The boys round it out with LAFCAST's very first MUSICAL GUEST, Washington State's own Marina Pitassi! Listen and enjoy. And tune in next...sometime for our next episode. Make A Miracle!

Episode 31: Ninja Dumps

In this episode, Libby and Franson fail to bury the lede by any stretch of the imagination and get right to the movie review right away...they tackle the Back To The Future Trilogy (spoiler alert: they like it.) Talk turns quickly to Franson's fear of poorly made fake boobs, a ringing endorsement for Uncle Rickety's FizzyPop, and altogether too much talk about sharks, from their fist-shaking hatred of Shark Week to a frank discussion about sharks with arms, as well as a new spin on the term "jump the shark." Also, lightning strikes twice as Franson reveals why you should never invite him to your home. But all this is just a precursor to the MAIN EVENT, as Libby spins a tale of quite possibly the wackiest environmentalist that has ever lived...R.I.P. James Lee, I hope there are froggies in heaven. A convo about Libby quickly and silently "taking care of business" wraps up this epic of epic epicness. Failurama!

Episode 30: Stupid Wigs

In this long-overdue episode, Libby is joined by "Mixmaster" Jon Kelly for an episode of GRAND PROPORTIONS...well, not really. In actuality Libby continues his streak of not-that-funny podcasts with an episode chock-full of wig jokes, childhood stories of PBS erotica, and inappropriate Tennyson references. The boys debate the merits of Randy Quaid, defend their views on time travel, and start (and quickly stop) talking politics. All this plus Libby's endorsement of animal cruelty, some serious TV talk, insults at Jon's babies' expense, and a review of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World await you in the LEGENDARY Episode 30! Charge!!!

Episode 29: A Hot Helen Keller

In this episode, Franson returns to the fold for a...well, admittedly lackluster reunion with Libby. The original dynamic duo tackle subjects such as the Super African Mario Brothers and Franson's tenure as a Country Jam employee. Libby realizes that fun facts are never actually fun, and Franson performs quite a lot of physical comedy that nobody will ever see. The boys respond to an ACTUAL HONEST-TO-GOODNESS LISTENER FEEDBACK for once, and find themselves defending the face of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Without a movie to review, Libby and Franson instead decide to review people, and Franson tries his hand at a Gun-To-Your-Head that may make you never eat another corn dog for the rest of your life. They try to fit in a little comedy at the end with talk of babies making out and a debate on the virtues of Ted Nugent, but in the end it's just not enough to save the ep. Funnier episodes in the coming weeks, podience. Judgmental!

Episode 28: Blenda Christmas and the CornLog

In this overly long episode, Libby is joined by Team Zorbee and a very, VERY special guest, Young Master Erik "Stinky" Nelson. We had to kidnap him to get him here, but he's here, and believe you me, listeners, we take full advantage of him. The boys drill Nelson on topics ranging from Power Rangers to his unborn child. Jon and Daniel talk about their re-re-revamped podcast, and Libby compares insemination to Indiana Jones. The gang speaks of such things as favorite childhood television shows, the lost history of Secret Origins: Young Jon vs. Young Libby, and a very one-sided friendship between Libby and Stinky. We stick a pin in this bloated balloon of an episode by talking about Tour Choir memories and exactly what kind of an experience it is to share a bed with the first-degree sleep criminal Nathan A. Libby. It's all here in this giant-sized episode. NICE!

Episode 27: Human Pizza

In this episode, Libby is joined by Daniel for what seems like the twelfth time in a row as they crack open another 2-liter of carbonated podcast delight! This proves to be the podcast of Libby's Epic Stories as he regales the audience with seemingly unbelievable tales of hobo thievery, workplace time-travel, and terrible Midwestern computer training videos. Meanwhile Daniel describes a scenario of Extreme Deep Tissue Massage, complete with your very own Massage Bro who gets paid in beer. Daniel also talks about all the disgusting things he's ever eaten in taco form, while Libby sits in a corner, eating his own hair and describing the perfect girl to go on a "spicy fling" with. After the GTYH that started it all, and a brief jaunt into the life of Joe Pesci, the boys wind up making this the lengthiest episode ever by having a long-winded discussion about something they've NEVER talked about on the podcast before...MOVIES. Libby and Daniel discuss going to see Dark Knight with an infant, and the possibility of a Hugh Jackman/Michael Caine love session. Stay tuned next week for an on-the-set interview with the stars of CouchCapades. Brossage!

Episode 26: Ugh, Really? Volume I

In this Silver Anniversary episode, Libby revisits the past with a Cavalcade of Clips! This admittedly cop-out move assembles some of the best moments of the first 25 LAFCAST episodes for your listening delight. Long-time fans should be able to appreciate a nostalgic walk down Memory Lane, and brand-new listeners will get a crash course in LAFCAST with this clip-show that is sure to make a die-hard fan out of any newbie (hint, hint, TELLYOURFRIENDSTELLYOURFRIENDSTELLYOURFRIENDS) And the episode ends with some Brand New Material (tm) from the recently unearthed Episode 25 Prime. Stay tuned next week for actual fresh material. Retrospective!

Episode 25: The Wrong Belushi

In this episode, Libby and Daniel "Two Sips" Kelly desperately scramble to recreate the magic of the FIRST Episode 25, lost to the ages. The boys ponder fun, family friendly topics such as rape and genital mutilation, as well as the death of a giant in the brand new segment "Too Soon." Daniel proudly talks about lockpicking, and Libby shamefully talks about man-makeup. Libby once again proves to know WAY too much about celebrity death, and of course this leads to a no-holds-barred discussion of computer game phenomenon SkiFree. Besides discussing "Midwest Tanning," Zoobooks, a German Pig-Tiger, and the "Crotch Game," this episode will go down in history as "the one with all the crappy impressions." Look for impersonations of Sonny Bono, Manute Bol, Michael Keaton, Jim Belushi, African Santa, Jim Sydow, and many more...proving once and for all that you DO get a second chance to make a bad impression. My Bad!
