00 – Hello! Indeed welcome!! Matt’s in a button up he got for his birthday last year. Happy birthday, Matt.

Eliot had an hour of sleep. And didn’t realize he had to be here early.

The blues is the working mans music.

Tiny sleep and traffic is why Eliot was late.

Jimmy had a small bit of sleep also.

Jimmy blames frakking.

Eliot wonders if Jimmy has tried to set his water on fire. This apparently is a side effect of frakking.

Matt wants to set this conversation on fire.

We learn things from Eliot!

05 – There’s an election over in the UK. Jimmy reminds us that there was a war and we beat them in it. Who cares about the royal baby?!

The fascination with the royal family is not the same as Matt having a hobby. “Slit the throat.” – Jimmy

Dumb people are fascinated with the royal family and watch Nancy Grace.

Jimmy picked up some Dan Folgerberg at Amoeba. He beat out Joan Armatrading.

Jimmy talks about his Wings for Life run. Calls it one of the cheapest and well organized races he’s ever done.

The race is in 31 countries around the world starting at the same time. Jimmy’s started at 4am.

Apparently this race doesn’t have an endpoint. You run until the chase car catches you.

10 – The run has a neat vibe, felt less self-involved. Jimmy felt great. There were people in wheelchairs participating as well. Jimmy was going to help one up a hll but someone else stepped in.

He made it to 7.1 miles before he was caught.

00 – Hello! 16 L!!! What will that L word be? Lexicon? Lexington? Leprechaun? It’s the first thing that popped into Jimmy’s head. They filmed the L-Word by Jimmy’s old place and didn’t want to let him go into his own house because they were shooting.

The L-Word 

Don’t be an asshole 3rd ADs!

Jimmy wants to slam Jay Leno’s bloated head into the side of his old shell tanker.

Eliot does the worst Leno impression ever. Jimmy likens it to Mighty Mouse.

05 – Jimmy’s OCD is causing him to be annoyed by some wiring by Eliot’s cubby.

That severe face pain Jimmy experienced last episode has not returned.

Jay's Shell International Truck

Jay’s Shell International Truck

Matt finds that picture of Leno’s Shell truck.

Matt gives the story about the truck and taking the photo.

Jimmy keeps talking about getting a fiero but he doesn’t know where to put it.

Jimmy is SO close to punching Eliot in the mouth.

Jimmy acknowledges that we did not get to the Tom Cruise talk with TJ Miller.

10 – Tom Cruise deserved an Oscar for Magnolia and definitely for Rain Man.

July 18, 1999 was indeed a Sunday and the last day Jimmy drank and the day he saw Eyes Wide Shut.

Our guest is here Shane Mauss! Jimmy and Matt talk about the day Shane showed up in the middle of a recording on the wrong day and we told him to hit bricks.

15 – Shane’s right foot works fine. His left is screwed. He’s DDL. Jimmy tries to guess Shane’s car. A Hyundai Alantra! Is that spelled right? It’s an ’08.

hyundai-fuel-cellHyundai Fuel Cell – 

Who drives a subaru?

Shane saw bears at Mt. Rushmore.

20 – Mount Rushmore talk.

Jimmy MIGHT HAVE TO BACKPEDDLE ON THE BEACH BOYS!!! Their surfer stuff sucks but Jimmy says Pet Sounds is pretty good. There might be more songs he likes than he admits too.

The Quarrymen – 


25 – Crazy Horse Memorial – 

You know who would know about this, Darryl Asher!

You know who would know about this, Darryl Asher! (True, I have been there a couple times.)

00 – Hello indeed! Welcome to 1612! Jimmy describes the room as frigid!

Jimmy’s gonna keep us posted on the temp and time. Now that it’s here we’re gonna fix that time.

We’re high and in charge!

Happy birthday Charlie!

Jimmy explains what happened Saturday afternoon. Including running a 5k in 27m11s.

Jimmy thinks he lost 12 seconds when he had to fix his iPod.

He felt like the race was more incline than decline.

Jimmy spoke to the good-looking flight attendant couple about incline vs decline.

05 – 74.7 degrees guys!

There was also a 1K for the kids to do.

Long story short they slept through the rain.

Jimmy tries to categorize the weather Matt experienced.

10 – Jimmy was able to watch the LA Kiss lose in person again. Jimmy does some Monday morning coaching.

The guys talk LA Kiss and coaching situation. http://www.arenafootball.com/teams/aflkiss/

Jimmy talks about the drunk rich OC guys that came back this time. They actually apologized for being so terrible last week. They took one more sip of beer and, “like dr. jekyl and mr. hyde” they went crazy again. This drunk idiot was getting laughs from people around him. To be fair it is a football game and the guy is having fun but still poor language around families is rude.

15 – Jimmy’s decided to move his seats. He isn’t gonna confront them because he doesn’t want to get beaten up in front of Oliver by three rich dicks in izods and flipflops.


On the way out of the stadium, Jimmy saw the worst car accident he’s ever seen in his life.

Power surge or something.

For the players club only: Power surge jimmy giving a play by play.

Welcome back to the program! We just had a power surge and we’re not sure how much we kept in during this brownout or whatever it is.

Jimmy gets back to the accident story. It was a t-bone right in the driver door. Really loud and violent accident. Oliver was scared the whole way home.

00 – Hello! 420 edition! Jimmy says he saw lines around the dispensaries. Jimmy thinks you should be outgrowing the 420 stuff after about 25. We wish all the dopers luck today.

Not everyone is an asshole. Just the one guy jimmy is referring to. You dumb motherfuckers. Stop being offended. Jimmy is specifically talking to one or two human beings.

Jimmy and Matt explain the show. Relax. Slow your roll man. Relax, baby, relax. – Jimmy populates season 17 intro.

05 – I ran out to Jimmy’s car to get his hoodie/sweatshirt/scully

The guys talk Bo Jackson.

10 – Jimmy talks about going to see Paul Blart 2. Has a lot of funny. He wonders if there is a critic conspiracy against Kevin James. Jimmy did his Paul Blurt laugh at least 6 times.

Jimmy wonders why Get Hard gets good reviews and Paul Blart 2 gets none.

15 – Matt explains the new word hutch. Jimmy explains the term “gay pibb” and Paul Gilmartin missing the joke.

Jimmy endorses Paul Blart 2.

Lorraine! Jimmy is friends with her somewhere. He thinks it’s facebook.

Everything about Jason today has Jimmy wanting to go get some refurbished piano wire and decapitating him with it.

.257 hitter and 297 home runs. 101 stolen bases are jimmy’s guess.

He changes.

Matt ges 248 and 212. 168 stolen bases

30 – Zero fun on the Bo Jackson stats. I couldn’t find the stolen bases because im a homosexual and don’t know sports.

We wish Bo a lot of love on 420!
