Going down in flames since 2008


TANcast 031 – My Butt is Itchy

December 30th, 2008 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

In this the final TANcast of 2008, you’ll hear Andy talk more about his friggin’ baby, you’ll hear about a kid that loves “cock,” you’ll hear about the “delicious” play Tim wrote, you’ll hear about TANcast’s new “sponsor,” you’ll hear Noah’s review of The Day The Earth Stood Still, you’ll discover the charm of Port Townsend, Washington, you’ll learn why computer Viruses suck, and you’ll hear the TANboys speak ignorantly about the Jews, the Africans, and the French.

Top that off with some tales of kids, pets, and gifts on Christmas, some charades stories, TANcast Technical Specs, and discussion of the effects of cold and heat on the TANboys…and you’ve got yourself a podcast, my friend!

    So I haven’t listened to this podcast yet, but I will soon. I just wanted to let you guys know that I’m spreading the TANcast word to all the unknowing mofo’s out there. My wife and I drove from upstate NY to Minneapolis/St Paul for Christmas. This is an 18+ hour drive that we split into 2 days because of the lack of day light hours and 11 week old son. My wife and I are avid talk radio fan’s, but we knew that trying to find Air America stations along the way would be a pain in the ass. So we decided that podcasts loaded onto her Ipod would be our best bet. She made the stipulation that who ever was driving got to listen to there choice, I knew she would learn to regret that statement because I loaded TANcast 1-20 up and drove 15 of 18 hours there and 16 of the 18 hours back. I am happy to say that she didn’t decide to jump out of the car at any time but that could have been fact that the outside temperature was steady at -10. Thank you TANcast for making my trip to Minnesota not suck. Oh and thank you all for the great job you do making us laugh. Happy New Year!

    Hello, Nates wife here. I just wanted to let you guys know I only continued to listen because I think Noah has a sexy voice 🙂 Ok that isn’t the only reason, but I have to thank you guys as well because it helped us have a great trip! I am surprised he isn’t wining about his lack of blowjobs on the trip though, he harps on that daily to me. Glad to know dick and fart jokes are alive and well, thanks for the laughs!

  3. NateNo Gravatar Says:

    First I haven’t harped on you in days. Second, I wouldn’t have harped at all if you didn’t lead me on the whole day prior with statements like “you so deserve a blow job for this” or ” You’ve been so good today, maybe I’ll let you cash in some of your blow job points tonight”. Stop with statements like that and there will be no grumpiness from me. Men aren’t subtle creatures, if you don’t want to give head… then don’t tease that you might be interested in it later cause we’ll just get pissed off that you don’t follow through.

    i’m right not listening to the show, and you guys have already dissapointed me… you did an hour and a half show for a request, but you dont do a 3-hour+ show for newyears…but besides that, nice show, and the teeth rant was great

  5. MikeNo Gravatar Says:

    letter misplaces… “i’m right noW listening…..”
    the was it is above is insulting and i dont want to do that

  6. MikeNo Gravatar Says:

    still listening…. Latkes are the best holiday food ever!

    Glad to hear you all had a good Christmas. I did also I went to the Magic Kingdom and then Hollywood Studios. I would like to have a TANKcast someday! I still want to know where to send my TANgifts? 🙂

    I’m not gonna comment on your “I’d be gay if ” just WOW!

    Response to Andy’s question about Cheetara (sp?) in the Thundercats trailer. That is Chiana from Farscape…

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

    Tim… I think there’s a “v” in the word movie. I could be wrong, but I think so. Really don’t have anything else to say this week. Oh, and…. YAY THUNDERCATS! Oh, and Happy New Year people!

  10. McMattyMattNo Gravatar Says:

    T. in tancast, thanks for the muppetastic Christmas. It is the Aunt. Second, it was the 2nd BD-Live chat. The first was with Benico Del Torro for Hellboy 2.

    I got my fiancee to listen for about six hours and I think she’s starting to like you guys.

    Misandry – anti-male

  13. Princess Edamame - #12No Gravatar Says:

    Oh, I’ll have to load up the ‘pod tonight before driving to gramma’s house with my 4 y/o (a whole 15 minues), so we can both hear my TANlaughs…can’t wait, guys…

  14. EversmileyNo Gravatar Says:

    Well, as one of your “ones of listeners”, hmmmmmmmm

  15. Bryce (Tancasts #3 Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    I wonder how many listeners there actually are. I don’t mean people who listen once and give up on it, either. I want there to be a list. What do you think, Mike?

  16. Princess Edamame - #12No Gravatar Says:

    Thank God I listened before hitting the 605 tonight…

    Just think, Andy, of how far that interactive little tyke has evolved from being just your jizz…awwww

    Oh, and my handle is the result of a combination of a bunch of sake, my maiden name, and a trip to way too many castles in Japan a few years back…it just stuck…

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

    Bryce, I have the answer. Nowhere near enough. An official count would be nice, but whatever it is, it’s nowhere near enough.

  18. TimNo Gravatar Says:

    I don’t know if I’d say we “nowhere near enough” listeners…we are very lucky to have found a group of cool people who enjoy the same kind of odd-ball and off-color humor that we do.

    Maybe we’re not lighting the internet on fire, but it’s more folks than we deserve and we’re very greatful.

    Plus is proof to our wives that we ARE funny!!! 🙂

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

    I’d say it’s nowhere near enough. You three are a riot, and you deserve way more listeners than you have.

  20. AndyNo Gravatar Says:

    @Mike and Bryce – We actually have stats, and it appears to be many dozens. Some day we may have better stats, and still dozens of listeners.

    @Princess Edamame – It’s like magic. And to think, I’ve been throwing that shit away for almost 2 decades!

    @Nate – DING DING DING! You get the geekpoints. I would have also accepted Gigi Edgley. Some day I’ll figure out the conversion between geekpoints, Gaybucks, and Vietnamese hookers…

    @Eversmiley – Dad? I TOLD you TANcast was a horrible, soul-crushing thing. It’s all cock jokes and other things that make you wonder where it all went wrong with your eldest son.

    @Everyone – I’m drunk-posting this.


  21. Bryce (Tancasts #3 Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    Happy new year! Out of “many dozens”, I’m proud to be 3rd. I hope you guys keep this up for a long time!

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

    Tim, I spotted another typo in the damn show notes thing… I’m pretty sure (or at least I hope) it’s not the final TANcast of 2009. Especially since it wasn’t even posted in 2009. It’s 4 AM, I’m depressed as all hell, and I’m still catching Tim’s mistakes. Do I get some kind of reward for this? Seems like geekpoints would be the most appropriate form of payment, although I will accept payment in the form of Vietnamese hookers. I’m thinking at this point, the nite nite pills I have may be worth taking, I’m fucking exhausted. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE…. now go get a damn cookie and let me sleep.

  23. Princess Edamame - #12No Gravatar Says:

    Proud to mark the end of the “first” dozen, tho I may not have been one of the first 12. Make sense? IF not, prestend I’m drunk.

    Happy new year, to all the Vietnamese Hookers out there. And all you other folks, too.

  24. AnastasiaNo Gravatar Says:

    Okie Dokie then….
    First off I thought i would call myself TANcast’s number one teenage female fan. Ooh so many can call themselves that right!? Second, I am trying to convert my friends to listen. Sooooo ya. Like totally, im going so go study german while listening now, so ya.

    Whoo hoo, I sort of got a mention. Dozens of people know I’m one of “those people” who does nothing of their own, but feels free to correct everyone on everything.

    Good job on self-correcting the misanthropy thing. My fingers were starting to itch.

    Finally, it isn’t that I love men so much, it’s that I’ve been close to both sexes plenty of times, and I can’t really put one over the other, since we all pretty much suck. Making me a Misanthrope.

  29. DeanNo Gravatar Says:

    Thanks for the TANrigs rundown… the UberNerd within me is appeased. Tim, after hearing the HELLACIOUS recounting of your virus attacks and hard drive epic fail, I’m even more eager to make The Switch sometime in June, as a Father’s Day gift to myself. Please tell me I’m not going overboard by opting for 4GB of RAM with a 320GB drive?

  30. NoahNo Gravatar Says:

    Dean: From my experience more RAM is good, I do a lot of multi tasking where I have iTunes, Firefox and Adium open and it will start to eat up my RAM. More storage is generally a good thing. I keep most the stuff on an external hard drive and I only have like 80GB on my Macbook.

  31. Iris, the long lost stepsister/fellow Hott BaristaNo Gravatar Says:

    The funny thing about the “Crucifix Dildo” is that I work with a pervy old woman named Sue you used to run “a Christian sex toy business”. I never knew if that entailed products catering to Christian couples, or actual s&m “Passion of the Christ” self-flagulation or crucifix shaped dildos…I tend to fight the urge to vomit whenever she brings it up.

    And yea all baristas are hott…I know cuz I am one

    DO you work in a coffee shop in Port Townsend? Was that YOU?! So sorry for the disrespect 😉
