Somehow ECRUcast sounded too pretentious.


TANcast 025 – Take THAT, You Look Nice Today!

November 17th, 2008 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

If you can brave the background noise of a Starbucks in Stockton, California, then you’ll enjoy this week’s wacky episode.

You’ll hear all about Noah’s wife’s sex dream, find out why Andy’s baby is crying, hear about bodily function mishaps in school, and get some great holiday shopping tips.

Quite a few TANflicks this week. The boys discuss Zach and Miri Make a Porno (again), Quantum of Solace, Star Trek XI, The Watchmen, JCVD, Madagascar 2, Soul Men, and then pitch a great idea for What Not to Wear…the Movie!

Tim pines the waning popularity of the Muppets, the boys puzzle over Steampunk, Tim mkaes smoe splling errrrors (eat it, Andy), and you’ll find out that James Lipton is a PIMP. Then they try and read some TANmail, muse over Barack Obama’s “Blackness,” show what sore losers they are, and finally fumble through another interminably long sign off.

This week’s special TANlaugh was performed by Alissa (http://lissalo.blogspot.com/).
(with additional laughs from comedians Ellis Rodriguez and Nico Santos)

    I’m a star!!! Haha. Allison and I just attended the premiere of my joke at TANcast.com… I’ll listen to the rest of the crap later.

    Noah, that was a little much for an intro. lmao
    Thanks a lot Andy. I was taking a drink of water when you were telling your coufart (new word I just made to describe that experience)…. didn’t go so well. My MySpace applications are making this comment extremely short. I’m hearing these things, thinking of things to say, and forgetting during the time it takes me to finish with the applications. HOW THE HELL CAN SOMEONE NOT KNOW ABOUT THE MUPPETS! *goes to find the Muppet Movie*
    The parents who have not exposed their children to the Muppets, need to be shot. Although speaking of Claymation… I now suddenly want to go watch Gumby. I am sitting here cutting wax with pennies…. I can’t seem to focus. I’m listening, I just can’t focus enough to comment. FUCK SPELLING!
    Tim, let me explain this to you… I am the ONLY person who sits around waiting for the new TANcast every week. In fact, if it weren’t for the new TANcast, I’d be sleeping right now. Pennies are not good for cutting things… or buying things. THESE THINGS ARE FUCKING USELESS! I just threw a penny at my monitor, and it just bounced off. USELESS!
    Andy, you’ll have a TANlaugh…. after I wake up. I am fucking tired. I was extremely impressed when it was a magic baking mixer. Once it stopped baking, I was less interested and impressed. It IS magical! There are stickers here!
    Wow, and now we’re back to sending Andy TANlaughs. I guess it’s come full circle…. or close enough. Something tells me there’s nothing worth commenting on in the last sixty seconds. Alright, goodnight. I have no idea why I keep coming back each week…. it’s like crack on the internet! Once you try it, you can never give it up. There needs to be rehab for your listeners. Ah,screw it…. I’ll be back in a week. Probably sooner, since I check the site four or five times a day. I fail at life.

    I’m crowning myself as Tancasts #2 Fan since I check the sight almost as much as Mike does.

    Don’t worry Mike, we both fail at life.

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

    My internet was out this morning when I woke up…. so I had a friend check comments for me to make sure I didn’t miss anything. Last night, TANcast rehab was a joke. This morning… I’m not so sure.

    Hey Tim,

    You can call him your nephew, instead of my brother-in-law’s son.

  6. TimNo Gravatar Says:

    Ha! You’re right, Matt, that’s way easier to say. Why weren’t you at Starbucks? Too busy catching up on the Muppets, I hope. 😉

    Tim, the “fight” was between Jess and Mike
    However, I’m glad I post so often that you thought it might have been me :]
    Awesome episode.
    I loved when Noah said “Excuse me” &sounded dead posh.
    &Tim’s story about throwing up in class made me laugh out loud.

    Andy, get your wife (there are many spellings of her name, and I think I got lucky with Dynelle (ZING) so I will just say your wife) on the next episode then with real audio and I can let her know if I find her voice hot too.
    I’m hella intrigued to hear Stephanie.

    Why is OG Steph called OG Steph?
    I can’t remember what the explanation was…

    Way longer comment than I planned it to be…

    You guys are horrible human beings!

  9. LissaNo Gravatar Says:

    Muppets Wizard of Oz was released in 2005. I remember because…well, that’s not important. May of 2005. Yup yup.
    And it wasn’t that good, which is a shame…since I love Muppets and I love The Wizard of Oz.
    BTW Andy, it’s the Burgermeister Meisterburger. It’s like..the best name ever. Haha.

  10. Jess (Tancasts #2 Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    The Muppets are still on TV guys!! Theres a new show on the Disney Channel, can’t remember the name. It’s kinda like the old Muppet show, but the guests are all the douche-bag tween stars from all the Disney Channel shows. It’s kinda sad.

    And how can a parent not expose their child to Sesame Street???

  11. Jess (Tancasts #2 Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    And Mike and I didn’t have a fight. More like a spat. But stickers will be exchanged and all will be well in the Tan-osphere.

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

    Because Sesame Street sucks these days, Jess. I saw an article about it, where they had to change the muppets at some point, because it seemed like Big Bird was on drugs (since in the beginning, he was the only one who saw Snuffleupagus), Elmo had ADD, Oscar was clinically depressed, Cookie Monster was going to get Diabetes, and other crap like that. People were bitching that it was sending the wrong message, so they had to change them. It’s actually really sad. I’d give you the link to the article, but I can’t seem to find it any more. You could try google, but after twenty minutes of trying different keyword combinations, I’ve had to say screw it. It’s possible that it’s been so long since I read it, that I’m taking things kind of out of context, but the overall gist of it was Oscar is depressed, Elmo is on Prozack or has ADD, Big Bird is on drugs causing hallucinations, and crap like that.
    Speaking of Big Bird being on drugs…. I’dd have to say if anyone on the show was on drugs, it was the humans. They were the ones talking to blue monsters and red monsters and a SIX FUCKING FOOT CANARY! But no…. it’s the damn six foot canary that’s on drugs.

    Luke: She is called O.G. Steph because we knew her first and strangely enough, I used to date a different Steph then the one I married. The one I used to date is known as Evil Steph.

  14. TimNo Gravatar Says:

    Yeah Muppets Wizard of Oz wasn’t great…I think it suffered a lot from the absence of Frank Oz (How ironic!) So they had someone else doing Piggy, Animal, Fozzie etc. Fozzie sounded way too much like Ms Piggy. Hopefully Frank will be back for the new Big Screen movie.

    Oh and I did hear about the new show on the Disney Channel I have not head good things. They need to release “Muppets Tonight” on DVD. That show was hilarious! It proves they can re-capture the magic even without Jim.

    Mike I totally remember some of the stuff you’re talking about. Also there was a rumor for a while that Bert and Ernie were gay. So they had to come out and deny that. Of COURSE they’re not gay…they’re not straight either…they’re FELT!!!

    Also, Luke “OG” refers to Original Gangsta. (Just in case you didn’t know)

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

    The gay thing, well I could kind of see that one Tim. They were even sharing a bed for a while. Even more than that, though, was that it had to be the six foot canary that was on drugs, and not the people having a conversation with the gigantic bird. I you’re going to accuse characters of a television show of being on drugs, at least think about who you’re accusing. Six foot bird talking to an elephant thing, or humans talking to the six foot bird? As for Oscar being depressed… His name is Oscar THE GROUCH. He is part of the Grouch species. What do you expect here? Rainbows and fucking sunshine?! I could rat about this all day (and I have a few times), but I’m not feeling well today, so I’m getting off here.

  16. Princess EdamameNo Gravatar Says:

    Okay – here’s why I would sometimes watch “What Not to Wear”: It proves that there really are people who go out in public looking worse than I do. Same reason I watch Clean House – it gets me motivated to keep my house neat. And it makes me feel good about not being such a shithead that I let my dirty laundry get aired on TV.

    That said, I will never seek WNTW out. But if there’s no good episode of Doctor Who on or something, there you go.

  17. ChelseaNo Gravatar Says:

    WOW I’m sure Skye would love to be your sponsor 😉

  18. TimNo Gravatar Says:

    Skye? You don’t mean the all girl band that my ex-girlfriend was in, do you?

  19. AnastasiaNo Gravatar Says:

    Heyyyyy! Anastasia’s back! Loved this episode. I told Giada about you guys! She says hey and Ciao! bbl!

    I actually check the page to see if it updates right before I go to work at around 5:00 a.m. so thank you Tim. Someone really does check in the morning.
