From the Archives: The Long Lost “Darryl” Intro

Going through my old files, I just found this MP3. Some time in Season 6, I sent Matt this file as a suggestion for a new intro for Season 7. It was either in response to, or was the catalyst for, a contest for fans to submit an intro MP3. I think this file was played at the end of a Season 6 episode, but neither my memory nor that damn website Never Not Notes are any help in tracking down which one. Anyway, enjoy! (Spoiler, this didn’t win, for obvious reasons.)

Jimmy references “America’s Hair Dad” from episode 206.

We’re done but Jimmy needs us to come in twice a week. Except me, I’ll be via Skype.

There is Ranch dressing all over the world!

Jimmy is sick to death about sponsored ads with that “you’ll never believe what happened!” style titles.”

05 – Jimmy asks if matt ever clicks the 12 things you never knew about blank posts.

NNF 1510 – Billy Eichner

00 – Welcome in! Jimmy hurt his lower back running in Eerie, PA. Running on a treadmill is like marching. A long run is an Eagles album.

It was Jimmy’s first time in Eerie. Great club with a great staff!

Jimmy says again, we have the best fans. People drove in from all over to see him. West Virginia, NY, Boston, Carolinas, etc. It was also cold and rainy.

He walked to his hotel after the show and it was like Jack the Ripper London. It went from misty to severe downpour as he walked.

Treadmill vs outdoor running 

05 – Jimmy saw The Equalizer this weekend in a theater full of black people. The movie stinks, but he loved it. This overweight black woman kept saying, “oooh Denzel!’” every time he killed someone. They also started running Gone Girl instead of The Equalizer. Everyone got up at the same time because they thought they were in the wrong theater. Some old woman yelled at everyone that the theater has already been told and to sit down.

Denzel was great but it is a horrible movie that Jimmy enjoyed the hell out of.

10 – We do have Black female fans! players club member Tracy came out to see Jimmy sporting her PC t-shirt.

Eerie, Indiana! 

We had to change the schedule last week so jimmy could do a cameo on Comedy Bang Bang. I had already planned an anniversary trip to Disneyland that day so I couldn’t be here for the show.

15 – Jimmy loves shooting at Comedy Bang Bang. It’s not like any other set.

We’re officially announcing Tickets are ON SALE NOON on Thursday 10/9.

Jimmy and Matt talk about the Palm Frond casting human like shadows outside the door.

Jimmy is getting emails saying he won the Eliot challenge. Jimmy’s off the hook?

We rebooted the bet on 10/1 and Eliot reset his settings back to normal.
