TANcast 090 – Sweet and Sour Baby Jesus

March 10th, 2010 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

The most compelling TANcast ever! This episode features casual blasphemy, abortion debate, and a frank discussion about religious choice. Then it devolves in to the usual TANtopics like Star Trek, Pulp Fiction, having kids, Hypocritical politicians, Shutter Island, Alice in Wonderland, the Academy Awards, Disney animation, movies based on Saturday Night Live Skits, and Chatroulette.

[CONTENT WARNING] TANcast features mature language and immature hosts but is NOT a representation of the stand up act of Tim Babb. Listener discretion is advised.

  1. Bryce (Tancasts #3 Fan) Says:

    Not popular, Tim?


    I sold 20 paintings in a matter of hours, made around $3000 (unfortunately, I have to give the gallery 40%), and it was only my art there.

    Also, I’m an high-voltage electrician which makes me pretty popular when the lights don’t come on.

  2. Melanie (TANcast's #1 MILF) Says:

    Wait – someone said Bryce wasn’t popular? I’ma gonna have to give this one a listen…

  3. Bryce (Tancasts #3 Fan) Says:

    No, he mentioned no TANcast fan is popular.

  4. Joe Anthrax (TANcast's #1 Conservative Fan) Says:

    Well, I’d buy that I wouldn’t be one of the popular fans, but I’m used to that…

    And sweet and sour baby Jesus was this a good show. Best Andy and Noah debate ever (of which Andy again proves he’s right). If people are certain that think having medical procedures done on their children or themselves will condemn them to Hell, they why in the world do they put any stock in doctors at all. Why take a child to a doctor, get a diagnosis, hear that said child will have to have a certain medication/transfusion/surgery, and then deny the child what this professional (who, IMHO, is DOING the work of God) says will save the child. I believe that God gave us this curiousity to try and understand the world around us, which has lead us to discover these amazing techniques of saving lives that don’t rely simply on the power of prayer.

  5. Bryce (Tancasts #3 Fan) Says:

    I agree.

  6. Bryce (Tancasts #3 Fan) Says:

    Except I’m a devout atheist.

  7. Joe Anthrax (TANcast's #1 Conservative Fan) Says:

    Bryce, it doesn’t take a belief in God to realize that what these people are doing is denying personal responsibility in the hopes that something “Almighty” will intervene. It’s akin to letting your house burn to the ground while you pray for rain rather than calling the fire department to put it out…

  8. Alissa (TANcast's #1 Female Fan) Says:

    This wasn’t the main point of well…anything, really but:
    Andy neglected to note my note within my email. I signed it “your ‘Mormon’ listener” on purpose. As in, my being Mormon is merely a technicality at this point. (I don’t know why I feel the need to explain myself to TANcast listeners but I guess I care what you think of me? I make no sense.)
    ALSO: I love that Noah mentioned the eye-poking in Alice. That really bothered me toward the end. AND what the HELL was with the Mad Hatter’s dance at the end?!
    Last little point thingy: Tim, I totally told you about the Smurfs movie months ago. Don’t say you’ve never heard of it. Remember when you came to the carousel and I was working and I told you and said you should be in it? Yea. You fail at the game of friendship!

  9. Tony Says:

    Popular – Well, I started the Rebel Legion, does that count as popular?

    Carpool lane – A baby seat doesn’t count as a second passenger.

    Being offended – Got borderline for the first time EVER by the discussion of when a baby is considered “alive.” But that’s because we lost our first son at 20 weeks, and that little man was a person and alive when we lost him.

    Alice Being a Dark Disney Film – Does anyone remember the queen in Return to Oz with her hall of screaming severed heads? Yep. Disney film.

    Good SNL Movies – Hello, numbnuts? Blues Brothers? The Blues Brothers? Nothing Al Fran…THANK YOU, NOAH!!! Damn it, that should be the FIRST film that comes to mind, followed by Wayne’s World, yet ignoring both of their sequels. Congrats, you got me to type this AS I WAS LISTENING. I mean, come on, guys! I’d expect this from a group of people 10 years our junior, but not you! I’m so disenchanted. Okay, I guess I got offended twice.

    Way to go, guys. Way to go. It was so excellent that you offended a long time listener who has sacrificed two Zunes to your podcast twice. 😉

  10. Geoff Says:

    That was fun listening to you guys have a serious discussion about morality and religion. I’m just glad I wasn’t there.

    I love how much Tim laughed at Noah’s comment about God writing for Lost.

    Also, Andy is totally right, The Daily Show’s piece on chatroulette was EPIC.

    Also also, those really are large ass titties.

  11. Bryce (Tancasts #3 Fan) Says:

    I’m with you, Joe. Alissa, you are a Disneytarian to me.

  12. Mysterious Matt (TANcast's #1 Mysterious fan) Says:

    “Szechuan baby Jesus” has no hits on Google.

  13. Teresa Says:

    What? Zoolander was an SNL skit? And sorry Tim, it’s an awesomely funny movie. You made sweet and sour baby Jesus cry

  14. Andy Says:

    Tony, for the record I think babies are alive when the sperm hits the egg. An amoeba is no less alive for having a single cell. I was referring to a legal distinction often made regarding babies that could survive in our atmosphere (outside the mech suit, as it were).

    Also, I think Blues Brothers got overlooked because if you see the movie before the sketches you store it as a movie and not an SNL creation.

  15. Geoff Says:

    Btw, I went on chatroulette after listening to this episode (I had been avoiding it but I just couldn’t anymore). Within about 2 minutes, I saw 3 penises. I am not kidding.

  16. Bryce (Tancasts #3 Fan) Says:

    Ditto. I didn’t enjoy it.

  17. Tony Says:

    Andy, no worries. It’s not like I’m deleting you guys from my Zune subscriptions list or anything. If nothing else, I thought you’d be proud, or surprised that it took this long, or something. 🙂
    And honestly, I’M surprised it took this long! 😉

    And I think I store the Blues Brothers as an SNL film because I just like to throw it out there as one of the FEW SNL films worth a frak. Sorry, I’m almost a bigger Blues Brothers fan than I am a sci-fi geek.

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

    This might be a bad time to point out that I have never seen the Blues Brothers. (Sorry Tony)

  19. Logan Says:

    Blues Brothers was a good movie Tim you should watch it. Well good for a Dan Akroad or however you spell it, picture. Cone Heads was horrible.

    I am a fan of Ernest P World movies but SNL has made some crap even compared to Ernest movies.

  20. Tony Says:

    Tim, I’m looking at you in disbelief right now. I… I… I’m speechless.

  21. Geoff Says:

    The original Blues Brothers movie is one of the all time greats. Half my childhood was spent quoting that movie with my dad.

  22. Melanie (TANcast's #1 MILF) Says:

    No chatroulette for me. I have enough penises at home.

    We love Zoolander over here, hubby and I. We know enough dancers to know that this is a very exacting and accurate representation of them. Even though the movie is about male models.

    Great show, guys.

    Now I’m headed upstairs to see a penis. With any luck.

  23. Ian Says:

    I am popular

    in bed

  24. Brian Says:

    Hunan baby jesus with broccoli…there’s a 50% off coupon at crocs outlet, andy.

  25. Brian Says:

    and melanie, if you can’t find one, just check out chat roulette.

  26. Dean Says:

    I think that transfusions are interpreted as “eating” blood and there’s some Biblical prohibition on that…

  27. Melanie (TANcast's #1 MILF) Says:

    update: saw the penis.

  28. Dean Says:

    Tim, you HAVE to see Blues Brothers because Carrie Fisher’s in it…
