TANcast 020 – The Train Wreck

October 13th, 2008 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

Instead of a glorious, special TANwife guest filled celebration of the 20th episode of TANcast…the whole thing goes off the rails and the show falls to pieces. Apologies for the poor audio quality this week.

If you can stand to listen, you’ll hear Tim talk Star Trek (Suck it, haters!!!), you’ll hear about the “great” LA fire of 2008, you’ll barely be able to make out stories of Andy’s stinky baby, and you’ll year the TANgang weigh in on the election (and it still turns to talk of Star Trek…EAT IT, HATERS!!!)

You’ll hear TANreviews of various TV shows like Supernatural, CSI, House, Pushing Daises and more, plus Noah’s misadventures with small children, tales of the Lost Episode of TANcast, and Soul Caliber inspired video game talk.

This week’s TANlaugh submitted by James T. Kirk (MUNCH IT, HATERS!!!)

    There’s nothing wrong with Star Trek, I just wish people wouldn’t take it so seriously. It’s like those annoying christians who want to always work every conversation somehow, no matter how distant from the subject, back to god.

    Don’t forget Lipstick Jungle and Ugly Betty! Andy good job on you recording! Thanks for the 20 episodes I have learned so much! Have fun in Vegas Tim!

    On a personal note: This is why you TEST YOUR NEW AUDIO SETUP.

    I felt like such an idiot when Tim IMed me with “did you listen to your audio?” and I checked it. Turns out that “the waveform looks fine in the recorder” is not substitute for a real mic check.

    My apologies to all, listeners and T_Nhosts alike.

    You guys are probably better off as TNGcast…

    Dammit Andy, you’re supposed to be the fun one to listen to! Tim, you still need to read my TANlaugh! Fix this next time Andy, your rants help me understand why my friends love when I start ranting…. it’s freakin’ hilarious! You just manage to use real words, which makes you better than me. No, yanno what, fuck real words! They’re overrated! Tim… don’t sing. And finally
    I never really got into Star Trek actually…. kinda liked Next Generation though, but not enough to watch frequently. What was I talking about? No lightsabers for Andy! Okay, I’m going to end this damn comment now, lol

  5. MikeNo Gravatar Says:

    Dammit, now I have to leave another comment because you just got to the part where you talk about my alter ego (according to my friend, anyway). House is one of the best shows ever! One of the three things I watch. I wasn’t as bothered by the Wilson bit, but I liked Amber! I’m not submitting this damn comment until the podcast is fuckin’ over!
    We don’t want Noah for president, I say we should let Andy have his finger on the button that launches all the missiles. That would be hilarious…. until he killed us all. Noah, they teach kids not to talk to strangers… they just don’t teach them not to talk to Noah, apparently. Tim, I demand a copy of that CD! I want to go to that damn Thai restaurant, just no way to get there 🙁 Damn Tuk Tuk being way out of my way -_- I still demand a copy of the CD, lol. Okay, it’s over, I can hit submit now.

    Well my new favorite listener just gave us another review (that he posted on my completely unrelated YouTube video…moron) Anyway…apparently he still listens and these are his thoughts on episode 20:

    Here is my newer review for TANcast. I don’t know if it showed up or not because “I don’t know how to operate a computer” according to you assholes. The fact that I tell you I don’t like Star Trek and you tell me to f**k off and you CONTINUE to talk about it, shows the most immaturity I have ever seen. I’m sorry Andy and Noah for giving you such a lower rating because you guys are at least funny……

    … I apoligize to you about your Kingdom Comedy videos because Tim, you are funny when you are more vulgar but the fact that you continue with your immaturity and bash on somebody who thought this was a GREAT show except for that one thing that bothered me, stuns me. I would rather get a blowjob from a starving cannibal than to ever listen to Tim again. I don’t hate people, I hate what they do but damn it Tim, your pushing it…..

  7. BryceNo Gravatar Says:

    Yeah, Tim, ‘”your ” pushing it. You just have to love that.

  8. JoNo Gravatar Says:

    I have to say I don’t think Tim is that vulgar! Perhaps I need to listen harder . . . or become more easily offended!

    I have little interest in Star Trek but it doesn’t bother me when it’s discussed. I often remember little of it; the same goes for talk of US celebrities I don’t know, gaming and tech stuff. Your interactions with each other are what makes it funny: so I still enjoy it! Never mind the hater – it’s not like he pays for anything! Screw him! We won’t enjoy TANcast unless you enjoy TANcast! Double screw him – in all his holes! (Going vulgar for the team!)

    I missed Noah going ‘ethnic’ for his joke – that cracks me up!

    Andy’s sex noises were slightly disturbing; thankfully it was over quickly!

    Happy birthday to Noah for whenever it is 😀 I just celebrated my birthday on the 10th – I turned 30 – I’m still coming to terms with it! I liked being able to say ‘late 20’s’ – even when I was in my very late 20’s!! Anyway, happy birthday to you, hope you have a great day! 😀

  9. JoNo Gravatar Says:

    As for the immature criticism: it’s not like this show doesn’t come with a content warning of immature hosts!!

    I think of your podcast as a group of friends (who happen to be pretty funny) chatting and we have the option of listening in. Well I’m sure that’s how you all said it started, when you were (still are?) amazed anyone listened!! No promises were made, and 20 shows later you are still a group of friends chatting and we ‘TANlings’ listen in!

    I don’t understand the need for people to complain about something they get for free! Your ‘favourite listener’ should be a little more gracious or just not bother saying anything at all!

    Ok, rant over!

    Thank you TANmen for the laughs and regular shocked gasps! Here’s to more suffering with Star Trek for the sake of our (and your) entertainment!

  10. MikeNo Gravatar Says:

    Jo we are not TANlings, we are the people with an incredibly long with a ridiculously long and nearly unmemorizable (which my spell check is informing me isn’t a word) acronym!

  11. JoNo Gravatar Says:

    By the time it was all said I’d already forgotten how it started! It was definitely unmemorizable (my spell check doesn’t like it either) with, I think, a touch of pathetic! I’m wearing the TANling badge with pride 🙂

  12. MikeNo Gravatar Says:

    But not the ridiculously long acronym?

    S’up all you P.W.H.B.T.T.D.T.C.U.W.A.N.F.P.W.L.T.Y.S.P.’s?

    Do me a favour?

    Inspired by TANcast

    Created by idiots (me and two friends)

    First two eps are up on iTunes now.

    My goal is to have a listener in a foreign country

    Who actually likes it.


  14. Mike (TANcasts #1 Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    Luke, I’m going to listen here very shortly (and I’m hoping it’s appropriate to play around my little sister), will let you know what I think. More important than that though…. copy and pasting the acronym to make me look bad is not cool! lol
    And yay, I changed my name, making it more accurate… and Tim can vouch for me. I may not be Tim Babb’s #1 fan (although I am pretty up there on the list), but I am TANcast’s #1 fan. Ummmm…. where was I going with this?

  15. Luke Whalley (like Wall-E)No Gravatar Says:

    I have no idea homie. but if you’re listening to the show, that’s good enough for me :]
    There are some swears which I especially can never help
    other than that?
    I think it’s pretty ok.
    How little are we talking?

    &where do you reside, Michael?

  16. Mike (TANcasts #1 Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    The US… it was okay, but I wasn’t too into it. It might work for other people, but not me. Sorry Luke

  17. LissaNo Gravatar Says:

    This may seem dorky to you people [I don’t know what I mean by that] but I got my first iPod ever for my birthday this year [I just got in Monday actually] and so I put some recent TANcasts on my iPod [so exciting to be able to say “my iPod!] and it’s really awesome seeing Tim’s ass on my little nano screen. So thanks for that. Haha.
    Woo hooo I’m listening to a podcast on an iPod!

  18. BryceNo Gravatar Says:

    Sorry for being a dick. It is a pet-peeve of mine.

  19. Luke Whalley (like Wall-E)No Gravatar Says:

    Criticism is cool with me. We can’t be everyone’s cup of tea.
    Thanks for giving it a listen anyways :]

  20. DeanNo Gravatar Says:

    Andy sounded like he was in a deep-sea habitat or on the Mir space station. Thanks for the explanatory interludes, Tim!

  21. NickNo Gravatar Says:

    Yes I too listen to NETcot, and smodcast, but i like you guys so much better… I even downloaded the episodes that i missed, so that i can hear it from the beginning.

  22. JessNo Gravatar Says:

    Listening to Andy this week made me have flashbacks to the NYC subway. I kept wondering if Andy just said “14th Street” or “15th Street”

    Hey Tim, did you like how I made sure to put the “th” after the number? That was just for you.

  23. GerryNo Gravatar Says:

    Hey Luke, cheers for that, very funny show, how long have you been doing the icepodcast, it’s kinda like TANcast, but yeah definitely similar sort of style. Episode 3 was the better one. Oh yeah btw, love TANCast too.

  24. GerryNo Gravatar Says:

    how do you comment on the ice podcast blog??

  25. Luke Whalley (like Wall-E)No Gravatar Says:

    Go to The Ice Cubes bit on the website and just go to add comment :]
    I am glad you liked it, Gerry!
    I figured ep3 was the best – we’re sorta getting into the swing of it now.

  26. GerryNo Gravatar Says:

    That’s wonderful to hear. Thanks I will be recommending you to the podcast community. Much thanks Luke, (other Luke’s are available lol, loved that bit.)
