NNF Players Club 14R – Fred Stoller
Maybe We’ll Have You Back
14 R as in Renegade!
00 – Players Club! The doors open! Jimmy a little late due to a slow race with a cop who wouldn’t get away from him. He was in the carpool lane next to Johnny Law.
Jimmy kept saying Get off my ass fuzz! To make himself laugh.
14 Riot! No winner!
Bob’s book arrived. Good man Bob Saget! We’ll give that book away after Jimmy reads it.
Some headphone adjusting for Jimmy.
Matt had Rancho. I had Renegade. Eliot had Riboflavin.
Jimmy and Matt prefer midi ring tones to real audio tones.
Mike Sakellarides tweeted Jimmy.
Fred Stoller is here!
My phone rang!
05 – I ran to get Jimmy’s phone.
10 – Jimmy went to the Barry Gibb show at the Bowl. Jimmy thinks Robin skyped in from Heaven. Opening song was Jive Talking. Jimmy said the show was GREAT.
15 – We go through the entire Barry Gibb setlist.
25 – Jimmy does a little trumpet for us. He mutes it!
Fred brings up seeing The Monkees with only Mickey Dolenz.
Matt ran and grabbed some Hugo’s Tacos preshow!
God’ll get you for making a sub par taco Stanley!
Jimmy enjoys the diet sweet tea at mcdonalds. $1 any size.
30 – Fred Stoller is here! Legal troubles! We’ll talk about it.
Fred talks about Adam Corolla and Norm Macdonald.
Freddy Stoller when we get back!
We’ll be back!
35 – Welcome back into the Players Club! The door’s WIDE OPEN!
Riot’s hit is Restless Breed – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riot_(band)
Dogpile is still around!
Eliot’s up and running with some video fixes.
40 – Eliot’s in a grey shirt. He’s safe per Andrew’s wishes.
Fred and Eliot are facebook friends.
Fred is apparently banned from an LA library after posting a video of his pathetic book signing at one of the library branches.
45 – Fred’s book – http://www.amazon.com/Maybe-Well-Have-You-Back/dp/1620877066/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1402001599&sr=8-1&keywords=fred+stoller
Fred tells a story about Norm MacDonald. Fred was not a fan of Kato Kaelin and Norm would bring him along to spite Fred.
“We’re getting milkshakes!” Norm and Kato to Fred while he was waiting for AAA.
Matt and Jimmy saw Kato once. He said hello to them.
Norm took Fred’s jacket and never returned it. Eventually his assistant gave it back.
Fred says Norm is a great guy.
50 – Norm is allowed to taunt Fred. Kato is not.
Jimmy loves Kato. He thinks he’s a good guy. Fred talks about having to do a week with kato at some hedonist hotel for a strip poker tv show in Jamaica.
55 – Kato thinks OJ is guilty. – http://abcnews.go.com/US/kato-kaelin-gut-feeling-oj-simpson-guilty-double/story?id=17288996
Jimmy and Fred often run into each other at the grove.
Fred was the monkey wrench on Handy Manny.
Fred wants to talk about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He says he doesn’t get Kiss at all.
60 – Fred talks about the music he listened to in the 70s. He was a big musical fan.
Matt asks how old Fred is.
Fred controversially says Deep Purple does not stand the test of time!
Fred started up with Gilbert Godfried. He’d be depressed to go after him because Gilbert blew away the rooms.
Jimmy mentions Fred starting with Bette Midler also.
Jimmy asks what Joe Piscapo’s stand up was like. Fred says he was just very likable. He said he was mostly a host.
Question of the ages? How did Joe Piscapo get on SNL?
Fred talks about Richard Belzer hosting Catch a Rising Star and how he basically just played with the band.
65 – Jimmy guesses Fred’s age at 75 but really wants to say 49, then 54. Matt guesses 52. Actual age 56! Moral of the story: Fred was too old for Kiss.
70 – Black Television conversation. You can’t measure those shows by modern standards. Would Roots or Rich Man, Poor Man hold up today?
Roots – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roots_(TV_miniseries) ratings went from 28 million to just under 37 million viewers.
75 – Racist mom video – http://radaronline.com/exclusives/2014/06/racism-is-alive-and-well-in-america-viral-video-showcases-mother-repeatedly-calling-black-man-the-n-word-in-front-of-her-kids/
Matt says this kind of racist mentality is going away and this kind of thing is the “death throws.”
This appears to be the story about the microwave Jimmy talks about – http://www.inquisitr.com/1283152/whites-only-fountains-microwaves-lynching-jokes-black-cotton-gin-employees-sue-for-discrimination/
80 – Matt talks about What Would You Do and mentions a specific segment about a woman taking food off people’s plates.
We move on to To Catch a Predator and how Fred feels sorry for the guys. Jimmy doesn’t disagree with that, they’re sickos but at the same time their lives are ruined and their families are destroyed.
85 – Cops had to blur a dogs face. http://uproxx.com/tv/2013/02/cops-blur-chihuahua/
90 – We’re done! And we didn’t talk about Fred Stoller’s legal case but we wish him a happy birthday. The guys analyze the recent Pardcastathon poster. Fred didn’t think he knew anyone on it but his eyes are focusing and he’s recognizing people.
Jimmy’s back is acting up apparently also so is his phone.
Jimmy enjoyed Fred’s book!
See you next time! The doors are closed!
