Guessing games with Danielle Koenig.
Guessing games with Danielle Koenig.
I love it when Danielle is on….hopefully with great Oliver stories!
It’s always so much fun when the guest is familiar and comfortable, like that little stick of dynamite Danielle. (And speaking of familiar and comfortable, when is Mr. Patrick Francis Dodson going to appear in Season 10?)
So many highlights…Jimmy’s “Brother Can You Spare a Dime” performance to the camera, the Magic/Bird musical, and Cameron Diaz starring in Pulp Fiction. But the part that made me howl with laughter was the video intro to the Movie Katz game. So infantile and yet so effin’ hilarious!
I imagine its been beaten to death all ready but that article just pisses me off.
As someone who lives in Canada and at least an hour and a half away from one of the few cities that any comedian who shows up on podcasts would actually make a live appearance (never do I hear that such and such will be in Toronto, Ontario), I think the author of that article is an idiot, a fool, and an ignorant whiner.
I would KILL to be able to regularly go to UCB or Comedy Bang Bang or Largo or whatever other fancy stand-up/sketch place that exists in LA. I suggest to the author of that article that they move to place where there is no comedy / theatre scene and complain to me that there are too many comedy podcasts. Even going to see a band requires, on top of the ticket price, an additional $30 for travel and hopes that the show ends before the last bus home (at 11.30 PM I might add!) leaves lest you want to pay for a $90 taxi ride.
When they were looking for a Helen Hunt movie, I was surprised that they didn’t do Twister, since the guys love that movie, and Bill Paxton.
Darryl was right.
I love Matt’s little moment of video self-consciousness at like 40:55. Anyway, love seeing Danielle, and that she’s so in favor of Hong-Kong Suits! So great.
Good news Kenny: I’ve hidden those throughout the entire run of the show.
Matt’s favorite song.
I actually did a fist pump when I saw that Danielle was the guest.
I’m guessing this is the article discussed at the beginning? http://www.avclub.com/articles/are-we-nearing-comedy-podcast-overload,70194/
Horseshit article, by the way. A writer working very hard to NOT GET IT.
I felt like this episode was made just for me. I really, REALLY hope this posting somehow gets to Danielle. When she mentioned Johnathan Schwartz, I had a total freak-out in my car. I first heard him years ago, when he hosted the weekend music programs on WNYC public radio. I had the sort of relationship with him that some people have with conservative talk radio; I began to derive a perverse delight in how angry his random ramblings would make me. Anyone who thought Danielle was making up anything about her impression of him, SHE WAS NOT. I wish I had perfect recall on some of the things he’s said that have made me literally scream “WHY ARE YOU TALKING? HOW DO YOU HAVE THIS JOB?”. There was a 5 minute story he told about Sinatra arranger Nelson Riddle that had NO point, but where he said of every tangential person in the story, including Riddle’s chauffer, ” They’re dead, of course.”, then tried to recall what they’d died of. It ended “Strange to think, all these people, dead now. (long pause) Sarah Vaughn, here on High Standards.”
Great episode all around.
I think “Washing Windows” was played as an outro on a Rock Solid ep, was it not? If only there was a NeverNotNotes for Rock Solid…
So funny Margaret! One time Schwartz kept alluding to some dispute Sinatra had with, I think it was Nelson Riddle. Anyway, he would NOT tell us what the dispute was though he clearly knew. It was like when my mom tells me stories about people I don’t care at all about but then infuriates me by clearly leaving out key points as if to protect someone’s (again who I don’t care about and most likely don’t know) privacy. So happy I’ve found a partner in willful frustration!
I was blindsided with laughter on the train this morning by the amazing video version of the Movie Katz theme song. High art.
I got so excited that I tweeted at Eliot about it as it happened. Not excited enough to actually follow him or anything, though.
Amazing, amazing episode all around.
Sean, Matt brought up the Window Washer song a couple times on NNF. I wanna say sometime in Season 1, is when it was played as the outro I wanna say it was one of the two with Pat Francis, but I’m not positive.
It sticks in my head because Jimmy was making up lyrics to it. Matt says it gets a little racy at a certain point, so Jimmy says “I see a couple of black guys” and he also throws in the line “I see a baby wrapping presents.”
I don’t if it’s been discovered already, but there is a movie trivia app called MovieCat. Not nearly as cool as Movie Katz.
Dan D: See my post above. All your Window Washing questions were answered. Well, one anyway.
Gonna say this right now. Love Movie Katz.
I was so happy to hear Danielle again. I have missed her. She cracks me up. Love her laugh and also Oliver stories. Love the show so much. Tell Danielle to not be away so long next time. Thanks guys. Your show keeps me sane at work….
Matt’s great “A veritable ‘Who’s That?’” is a Jon Wurster line from “The Best Show on WFMU”. At least Matt knew he got it from somewhere else. It cracked me up!
[...] to those who I knew could share it with a wider audience. Those who’ve mentioned it on podcasts and their sites, thank you. I really appreciate the endorsements/mentions and the sales that it [...]
|I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
May I just say what a comfort to uncover someone who truly knows what they are discussing online. You definitely know how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people ought to check this out and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you aren’t more popular given that you most certainly possess the gift.
