  1. Chelsea (the best CHELSEA EVER!) Says:

    Is it me or does “Unstoppable” seem like “Speed”, but on a train? Granted I haven’t seen the movie, but the trailers make me feel like I’ve already seen this movie….

    And hey Tim, I have an idea for a sticker/button for the cafepress store, have it say “I made it through an episode of TANcast”

  2. Logan (Tancast #1 Zombie Fan) Says:

    Tim can you possibly use a Outlook email notification to indicate the end of a hour instead of you setting a mechanical alarm clock, really hurts the ears and interrupts the flow of you guys talking.

    Just a thought

  3. Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan) Says:

    @Chelsea I would say Unstoppable has a similar tone but a different premise. I certainly didn’t feel like it was the same movie.

    @Logan If I had Outlook maybe. If you think it hurts your ears, you should hear it before I reduce the volume for the podcast. (I’ll figure something out)

  4. Breeno Says:

    I’m with Chelsea on the cafepress idea, I think its been said in enough episodes now to be deemed trivia.

    Was also nice to see CJ takes pleasure from my boredom, I too laughed when I spotted he liked the post. I now vow never to reach that level of bored again, it’s not a nice place to be.

  5. Jon Says:

    I am surprised nobody else commented on it, but I love the idea of a possible TANcast movie commentary track!

    Also, I think Andy’s stories about the baby and his dreams are often the most amusing moments on TANcast. Keep discussing them, Andy.

  6. Logan (Tancast #1 Zombie Fan) Says:

    Thanks Tim, don’t mean to be a whinner about it, but it does seem to take away something from this quality podcast.

  7. Alissa (TANcast's #1 Female Fan and NEW #3 Fan/the second A in TANcast)) Says:

    I have yet to comment on this episode because every time I start to listen to it I fall asleep. This is the first time this has happened to me. I don’t know what to do. I’m sorry I’ve failed you all.

  8. Melanie (TANcast's #1 MILF/GILF) Says:

    @Alyssa – oh noes – TanFanFail!

    further fail – My son is/was all about Thomas the Tank Engine (bust my buffers! cinders and ashes!), and I haven’t listened yet. I hope to correct this on tomorrow’s commute. 🙂

    quiriess Profile, everyone!

  9. Vrej (TANcast's #2) Says:

    I’m still listening to the podcast tell you what I think about it soon

  10. Vrej (TANcast's #2) Says:

    its awwwwwwwwwwright

  12. Andrew, TANcast's #[square root of -1] Australian fan Says:

    I vote +1 for “Mystrious Adam”. Thank you sir.

  13. Andrew, TANcast's #[square root of -1] Australian fan Says:

    Tim, you could have your computer abruptly shut down after 1 hour?


    Or maybe just a 1 hour countdown on a mobile phone’s alarm timer? I know Noah has an iPhone which is capable of such marvels as this!

  14. Andrew, TANcast's #[square root of -1] Australian fan Says:

    Beware the premature use of the “publish” button, that’s all I can say. I typed up a big thing about Cockney slang last night but appear to have lost it …

    Noah: the word you were desperately groping for at the end is “postmark”.

    Andy: if the train was somehow magically tipping while going straight, and then entered a curve in the same direction as the tip, I think it would come good. I’m thinking gyroscopic effect like a motorbike. A train’s centre of mass AND centre of balance are both pretty low down though, so I guess if it had received enough force to begin to tip, it would pretty much be game over.

    And may I close with: Hairy Irish Nuts!

  15. Andrew, TANcast's #[square root of -1] Australian fan Says:

    So I’ll try again with the Cockney slang thing.

    Cockney rhyming slang is odd because you often end up with the replacement word being longer than the original.

    e.g. “give us a butcher’s” — butcher’s hook — look

    Twice as many syllables! Madness.

    There is a scene in “Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels” where a bartender relates a previous event, with so much rhyming slang it was subtitled.

    Bird’s nest — chest
    Apples — apples and pears — stairs
    Hampsteads — Hampstead Heath — teeth
    Khyber — Khyber Pass — arse (now that one I like)

    Seriously, they’re all mad I tell you. It must be a shibboleth thing so they can weed out the foreigners.

    In Australia we generally contract things to two syllables or less. This is because we are efficient. Why say “carpenter” when you can say “chippie”, “bricklayer” when you can say “brickie”, “service station” (filling station or gas station) when you can say “servo”? Once again our superiority is demonstrated on the international stage.

    Just remember not to call a roof tiler a roofie.

  16. Noah Says:

    @Andrew a line in the first Ocean’s 11 remake just made a lot more sense because of your explanation. Here is the quote in case anyone cares:

    Basher: So unless we intend to do this job in Reno, we’re in barney.
    [everyone pauses]
    Basher: Barney Rubble.
    [they look bewildered]
    Basher: Trouble!
