TANcast 059 – Return of the TANguys

August 2nd, 2009 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

The TANboys are BACK…and as crappy as ever. This week they discuss the perils of home ownership, Andy’s dream, eating in a big group, racism, a moment of seriousness about death, another crappy lay off, IM etiquette, movies (Indiana Jones, The Orphan, 500 Days of Summer, District 9, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, A Perfect Getaway, My Sister’s Keeper, the Lake House), and Andy gets mocked for his Crocs…yet again.

Also…anyone know where the “Link” sound effect is from this week?

This week’s TANlaughs were submitted by Dave in the UK, Alissa, and Mike.

    At first I thought that the link sound was your wife, Tim – it matched her voice so well, but now I’m further through I’ve realised which MF is saying that BING. πŸ˜‰

    Incidentally, did you mean for your headline to be stuck on “Capping off a year of crapping in your ear”?

    Great to hear you back, guys. Love to Andy in particular.

    When I first clicked on this post I thought it said TANgays.

    Also I forgot I sent those jokes. Haha.

    I’ve just been checking out your “Tagged” links.
    Crocs are more popular than Racism, but less popular than lay offs, and much less popular than Indiana Jones.

    As it is in TANcast posts, so it is in life.

    Yes on bringing Star Trek the exp back and Captain EO.

    Funny story on the “Capping off a year…” thing. WordPress changed some back-end security features in a recent minor update and broke the “Random Tagline” plugin. We’re stuck with the current tagline until I figure this out (and since I only discovered it yesterday and I suck …).

    PS: I love that Roman numeral 59 is “LIX”.

  6. AndyNo Gravatar Says:


    Figuring out the plugin security issue was taking too long. Reading the plugin’s PHP code and looking at our site’s database was much simpler. Three edited fields later and we’re back to random taglines, baby!

    Yay – and I got one I don’t remember seeing before too – “A tiny boil on the ass of the Internet”. πŸ™‚

    is the link sound effect kristen from mousetalgia?

  10. Mike (TANcast's #1 Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    Awesome, Murray. I don’t think they have any that I haven’t seen. I come here at least once a day (usually more), and I think I’ve seen them all. lol

  11. AndyNo Gravatar Says:

    There’s 38 of those taglines in rotation. I can probably name half from memory, either because I came up with them or because I am a very, very sad little man (you pick).

    PS: I just accidentally found out where Tim got the “Bing” noise from. It hurt my soul.

    My wife and I got laid off on the exact same day from the same place a few years ago. It was Valentine’s Day to boot. We were only dating at the time, but we lived together so it may have well been the same.
    Needless to say it sucked, but I found out that if you tell the bartender you and your girl got laid off today, you get free drinks!

    “PS: I just accidentally found out where Tim got the β€œBing” noise from. It hurt my soul.” Really? I thought you were down with the Grammar Girl?

  14. AndyNo Gravatar Says:

    I’m 99.9% sure it’s not Grammar Girl. I heard a “Bing” this morning that I’m pretty sure was the source.

  15. Melanie ("The Princess")No Gravatar Says:

    I’m down with the “bing”, and I think Andy’s wrong and Murray’s right. Tim – please ‘fess up, once enough time has passed for people to make their guesses. πŸ™‚

    Andy – I hope it give you some happiness that you gave me such joy when you used my [son’s] weird phrase in the first few minutes of the show. I laughed my ass off, and I wasn’t even on the 605. Thanks.

  16. Jess ("Bing" #1 Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    Is the “bing” from porn?

  17. AndyNo Gravatar Says:

    (Bows to the Princess)

    The crazy thing: the dream was real.

    Also, here was my “bing” guess:


  18. Murray (TANcast's #1 Aussie Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    Methinks the Bing is from the “Behind the Grammar” that Tim was mentioned in. I cite as proof that the “bing” in TANcast has emotion in it, and that the undead Palm Pre girl can’t emote anything.

    You know, Andy, people may mock me for teaching my kid the word “wang”, but I have to say…I have heard you talk, and your kid is equally fucked. πŸ˜‰
