A tiny boil on the ass of the Internet.


A letter from the N in TANcast

April 1st, 2010 . by Noah

I’ve been sitting on this for a little while, not sure how I wanted to say it. Its been fun and strange and amazing, but my wife and I have decided that its time to say goodbye to TANcast and focus 100% on our family.

I told Tim and Andy last week, and we’ve been talking about “What Happens Next” since then. They both agreed I should be the one to break the news.

The site won’t move and the show won’t change it’s name. I will still be the “N in TANcast” through TANcast 100 (triple-digits!). I will probably do a guest shot every once in a while after that, but from TANcast 101 on it will be Tim and Andy’s show. Andy said he won’t be turning off my access to the site or to email, so I may log in and post something when I have time and something to say.

They are already talking to a few different people about being regular guest hosts and I’m looking forward to listening to it every week.

I’m a little sad, but like the breakup of the TAN House, it had to happen some time.

    Noah, I’m a little misty right now. I knew this post was coming, but seeing it in print seems more real.

    I can’t speak for Tim, but I’m gonna miss talking to you every week. I know we’ll be in touch on IM and we’ll see each other when I’m out in California, but this just feels like the night we all moved out in Summer 2005 except this time Tim and I are staying together instead of you and Tim.

    I guess I’ve re-inherited Tim after all these years.

    PS: You probably should have posted this yesterday or tomorrow, dumbass.

  2. Noah Says:

    Damn. I totally forgot.

    Can I change the date after I post something?

  3. Geoff Says:

    I really wish this was an april fool’s joke. I totally didn’t see this coming. But like you said, it had to happen sometime. πŸ™

  4. Bryce (still the #3 fan after ALL these years) Says:

    πŸ™ But who will Tim cut off now?

  5. Teresa Says:

    April Fools! Please?

  6. Tony (TANcasts #1 Blues Bros. Fan) Says:

    Seriously, man, let this be April Fools. Andy did it last year, I figure it’s your turn.

    If so, kudos to you.

    If not, and this is serious, at least I can still keep track of your 0.0 Miles walks on Facebook and Twitter. πŸ˜‰ It’s been a good run, man.

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

    Yes Noah, it would have made a better ploy had you actually released this info on ANY other day than April 1st…

    But now, if you don’t actually leave the show, then it truly is you who is the one who is being the douche… πŸ™‚

  8. Noah Says:

    Would I still be the douche if I wasn’t the one that posted this or that comment above?

  9. Tony (TANcasts #1 Blues Bros. Fan) Says:

    Nope, when I envision douche’s, Noah, you are nowhere near what I think of.

    Unless you’ve been sporting a lot of Ed Hardy and a faux-hawk lately.

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

    @Noah…No, you would not be the douche, but if you truly are leaving the show (which I’m certain nobody who is posting here wants), it is very suspect for you to make the posting on April Fool’s Day.

    It is also suspect that the person who calls you out it the person who pulled last year’s April Fool’s Day hoax…

    And if either of those turn out to be incorrect, then it is I who is the one who is being the douche…

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

    Honestly, the aspect that makes me the most skeptical is the tag ‘noah is a big fat turd’

  12. Bryce (still the #3 fan after ALL these years) Says:

    I’m really hoping it’s an elaborate joke.

  13. Andy Says:

    Guys, Noah did not pull an April Fools’ Day prank on you.

    I can say that with complete honesty because I wrote the post and both of the first two comments. That’s right kiddies: Reality is my plaything! Muahahaha!

    Noah found out about this post when Geoff IMed him to ask why he was leaving the show. He’s a good sport for playing along as long as he did.

    As Tim (who I let in on the plan weeks ago) has been waiting to say since yesterday:

  15. Andy Says:

    Dear Zombie Ann,

    Please stop gnawing on my noggin. It was just a harmless April Fools’ Day joke. I know you like Noah. He’s not going anywhere.

    Seriously, knock it off. I already can’t remember my grandmother’s name and everything is starting to smell like pickles to me.

    Dear Annoyed,

    Thus showing that, in fact, ANDY is the one who was the person who was being the douche…

    and, fyi…IT’S REEEEAL!!! Can’t you see?!? It’sa real…

    (Good job fellows!)

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

    I knew it! Look at the tags I say!! OK mebbe I didn’t suspect Andy but I knew it was fake. That is all.

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

    Sorry folks but Andy is full of shit.

    He didn’t tell me “weeks ago,” he told me yesterday a few hours before this blog went up. Andy you are a dirty liar x2!

    It’s a faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaake!!!

  20. Andy Says:

    Tim clearly doesn’t recall me telling him this plan after Noah dropped off our Skype call a few weeks ago.

    I guess that’s what he gets for huffing glue.

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

    Andy likes to make up lies…or talk when people aren’t paying attention…it’s hard to tell which this is.

  22. Bryce (Tancasts #3 Fan) Says:

    I’m overjoyed.
