    Oh, shit – sorry guys, thought I was at Perez Hilton for a second there…

  2. Chelsea Says:

    Here’s the updated picture of Nikki Cox just for you Andy

  3. Chelsea Says:

    damn I guess you can’t post images on here:


  4. Andy Says:

    Mmmmm. Nikki’s boobs…

    There was one episode of Unhappily Ever After where her mom was (IIRC) telling her to project by sucking in her middle and puffing out her chest. It was the best magic trick I ever saw: Making mountains out of slightly-smaller mountains.

    If the reduction rumors are true (and that pic looks like they might be) then I hope she’s an organ donor. Some starving orphan could get her leftovers and instantly shoot to stardom, or at least porndom. That shit can really change a life!

    I’ll just remember them like they were a decade ago. Jay Mohr can be happy (and believe me, that tubby bastard better be) with the leftovers.

    Now, lets try something…


    That’s pic is brought to you by:

    PS: To everyone reading, don’t go using this to post any bigass pics in your comments. If you slow down page loads too much or blow up the page layout I’ll just turn your IMG tag into a link.

    PPS: If you embed an image in a comment, please be a good citizen and tell the web browser how many pixels high and wide you want to display the image. Modern browsers will look at the declared size and will leave room in their layout. If there is no explicit size, they’ll have to load enough of the image file to get the size, then redo the layout. This is also a good way to avoid stretching the page layout (going over about 400-500px wide) without manually resizing and posting them somewhere.

    PPS: Yes, I coded the tag to make the image display as half the original size.

    I got mentioned. Awesome.

  6. Mike (TANcast's #1 Fan) Says:

    Dammit Andy, I sent you three weeks worth of TANlaughs for just such an emergency! Geez, let me think of some [Read: look some up] and I’ll send them in. I have nothing else to say this week. Granted, there’s 21 minutes left, but oh well. I have nothing else to say.

  7. Jess (Tancast's #2 Fan) Says:

    Noah: what gauge are your ear piercings? Also do you have any tattoos?

  8. Jess (Tancast's #2 Fan) Says:

    By the way, the album art for this week’s episode is fucking scary!!!!! My wife saw it and got kinda freaked out, I think.

  9. Princess Edamame - #12 Says:

    Ok, so can we now start calling the guy listeners “TANcasties”, and the lady listeners “TANnasties”? Please?

  10. Tim (TANcasts #1 Host/Editor Fan) Says:

    I like “TANnasties”…probably way more than I should

  11. Bryce (Tancasts #3 Fan) Says:

    TANcasties doesn’t ring well with me.

  12. Tim (TANcasts #1 Host/Editor Fan) Says:

    You didn’t like my game night…

    You don’t like TANcasties…

    Is there no pleasing you, sir?! 😉

  13. Bryce (Tancasts #3 Fan) Says:

    TANcasties sound like something you find on the bottom of a table at pizza hut. I love everything else.

  14. Princess Edamame - #12 Says:

    TANnasties it is, or we are, or whatever – ok with you, Jess?

  15. Princess Edamame - #12 Says:

    Oh fuck, not Jess – stupid assumption there. Who’s the girl here I’m supposed to catfight for the #1 female fan spot? Too lazy to look it up…much too lazy…

  16. Kris (TANcasts #1 Gay Fan) Says:

    Hey! I have nothing to say but I wanted to be apart of this TANcast comments! Whatsup everybody! Oh yeah Happy New Year!

  17. Lissa Says:

    Haha that’s me I suppose. And I’m down with TANnasties…haha.

  18. Lissa (Tancasts #1 Female Fan) Says:

    Oh shit. I forgot my number.

  19. Dean Says:

    Every now and then in this episode, there’s the sound of something like a plastic water bottle being squeezed and released… a notification sound effect, perhaps?… then at about 56 mins, someone starts playing with Velcro?

    Given the choice between Fantasy Football team ownership and Celebrity Sex List coming true, I’ll take the latter… Anne Hathaway definitely is a great choice. Tim, I suspect Shakira is on your list for the same reason Parminder Nagra is on mine… so we can know what it feels like to be taller than the woman.

    Surprised no one picked Tina Fey to get their nerd swerve on and Jessica Alba or Salma Hayek would be my Latina choice over Ms. Potato Head Downward Smile Mendez.

    Cate Blanchett suffers from the “attractive, but hard to put into words why” syndrome. Also, I keep getting her confused in publicity photos with Tilda Swinton.

  20. Jess (Tancast's #2 Fan) Says:

    I heard the velcro too!!

    Also I think my earphones are dead from Tim laughing so loud (no joke). Deaf by TANcast.

    And by the way, Princess Edamame, I’m a dude.

  21. Logan Says:

    Hey just wanted to say me and my brother both love Tancast, just don’t get on the comments section ever.

    Keep it up guys.

  22. xapnomapcase Says:

    I certainly don’t want to get in a catfight. You are more than welcome to the spot. It’s not that I’m not a fan or anything, but girls fight dirty, and I want no part of that.

    Even after knowing what’s behind the album art, it’s still kind of disturbing. No, I lied. It’s a LOT disturbing.

  23. Jess (Tancast's #2 Fan) Says:

    What?? No CAT FIGHT??? This shit sucks, I’m gonna go play some video games, call me when the ladies start going at it.

  24. Tim (TANcasts #1 Host/Editor Fan) Says:

    Dean, awesome! Thanks for posting your list too…I forgot to ask y’all to do that.

    Ladies can do it too…My wife’s list is Ryan Reynolds (aka Hottie McHotterson), Justin Long, Mark Ruffalo, Sean William Scott, and Topher Grace

    I must apologize for the Velcro..I was packing for my trip back to LA during the show.

    And Logan, welcome!

  25. Mike (TANcast's #1 Fan) Says:

    Okay, first of all…. I turn 18 on Sunday! I know it’s not relevant, but I’m stoked (Heh…. when’s the last time someone said “stoked”).
    Second, five celebs…. Eh hell, I’m not gonna bother thinking of five, because only two come to mind, and I’m too lazy to take the time to come up with three more. Mickie James and Ashley Massaro. Both are WWE Divas (what can I say, I’m obsessed with the WWE). Actually, Ashley WAS a WWE diva… she got canned I believe. She was also on Survivor. Yeah, so not gonna take the time to come up with three more. I’m a lazy fkin bastard, and I’m tired. Actually, I take that back…. Anne Hathaway (just remembered seeing her last night on… Jay Leno? Eh, one of those shows), and yeah. That’s good enough. I’m not coming up with any more.

  26. Noah Says:

    Jess: My ears are at an inch and for tattoos I have a angel and devil on my shoulders.


  27. Jess (Tancast's #2 Fan) Says:

    Noah: Cool, I’m on my way to an inch, need one more stretching.

  28. Jess (Tancast's #2 Fan) Says:

    Am I the only one that thinks Anne Hathaways mouth is HUGE?

    I don’t like that cause it would make my penis look small(er).

  29. Chelsea Says:

    Ok Tim,

    Here’s my list:

    Hugh Jackman, Viggo Mortensen, George Eads (CSI: Las Vegas), Jon Bon Jovi, Johnny Depp

  30. Tim (TANcasts #1 Host/Editor Fan) Says:

    Andy is a rotten liar! He said in Episode 29 that Elisabeth Banks was on his list. You all heard this episode…where was Ms. Banks? I’m calling you out Andy!!! You are a liar face!!!

  31. Mike (TANcast's #1 fan) Says:

    Well, two things. First, TANcast is no less offensive now that I’m eighteen. Second…. I don’t know what was second.

  32. Bryce (Tancasts #3 Fan) Says:

    Happy birthday, Mike. When are we gonna get another hour and a half show? Come on Mike and Jess, beg with me.

  33. Mike (TANcast's #1 Fan) Says:

    Thanks Bryce, and your right… we do deserve another 90 minute show. How about it guys? We’ll call it your birthday present to me :p

  34. Jess (Tancast's #2 Fan) Says:

    Fuck the hour and a half show. I demand the 2 hour TANcast!!!!!!

    And Happy Birthday Mike. Welcome to adulthood

  35. Mike (TANcast's #1 Fan) Says:

    Thanks Jess. 2 hours would be nice, but I think that’s pushing it, since at least one of these guys has responsibilities to attend to. Something about Andy having a kid to take care of, lol

  36. Andy Says:

    Happy B-Day, Mike!

    Tim, Mrs. Banks/Mitchell/Handelman (stage/birth/husband’s name… Thank you, Wikipedia) fell off the list when my wife subjected me to Christmas with the Kranks (AWFUL movie…) and I was reminded of Julie Gonzalo’s DSL.

    Elizabeth Banks is a funny hottie and, ironically, replaced Shannon Elizabeth (Fadal) in the same position on the list when I was forced to admit she was kinda whiny after seeing her on Dancing with the People You Might Have Heard Of. Still, I have other funny on my list and, when you get down to it, BJs are BJs.

    On a related note, yes, Jess, I’d noticed the size of Anne Hathaway’s mouth, but if I was concerned about my wiener looking small I’d only ever have dated people with growth hormone deficiency.

    Severe growth hormone deficiency.

  37. Jess (Tancast's #2 Fan) Says:

    Ok, I guess I can settle for another 90 minute TANcast, but I will never give up hope for the 2 hour.

    Keep Hope Alive!!
