Just a few seats left at the second show in Austin!

Matt started listening to Yaz’s first album. Matt not a big fan of Don’t Go but loves Only You. He talks about the second song on the album Too Pieces. We hear a bit of it.

05 – Nothing gets more comments than Yaz and Rich Sommer reporting on the airline apparently. We definitely cultivated My Brother though.

Jimmy doesn’t need to know about the references to other shows.

Jimmy talks about heading to fan appreciation night for LA Kiss.

Eliot’s in the distance! Keep him in the distance!

Jimmy ranks us. Eliot’s a 4. I’m a 3.

Jimmy compares me to Gelman on Regis and Kathy Lee.

Jimmy NNF cursed Kathy Lee to her face for being rude (not really).

10 – Jimmy talks more about heading to the LA Kiss night. His GPS jumped from half hour to over an hour so they just bailed and went to get dinner.

They had a delicious meal at portillos which is apparently just 10 minutes or so from the stadium. Jimmy just couldn’t handle the traffic and didn’t care enough.

They also went to a trampoline place. Danielle has been sicker than Jimmy has ever seen her.

Jimmy talks about the Trampoline place. He’s mad at the woman for not telling him about the 3 hour special on Saturday nights.

15 – Jimmy is tired of it. Do your jobs.

Jimmy is gonna start fining us for insubordination.

We got some mail!

Jimmy reads the mail while I grab our guest.

Some cool drawings from Scott. One of Batman for Oliver and one of Cajun Jimmy.

20 – Jimmy is sending Matt to Big Five Sporting Goods for a Baseball bat. He wants Matt to break every camera (except one) and then Eliot’s jaw.

Choke up on the bat Matt!

Jimmy’s taking the post!

Urbankiak is in here! It’s an embarrassment!

Jimmy’s upset guys.

Jimmy’s not sure if all of that was fake.

25 – Early break! Thank you for the letter and drawings Scott!

Jimmy talks to James a bit before we break.

He’s done some books on tape. God is Disappointed in You

It was a dark and stormy night

Jimmy calls the Peanuts unwatchable. He’s gonna be in Muppet hot water.

Jimmy thumbs up Mission Impossible.

James is also on Review. He talks into a turned off mic.

Eliot and I get flip flopped. My audio jumps to a 4, Eliot drops to a 3 (-4).

30 – Jimmy tells matt to get a BATT. Not some piece of aluminum.


We’re back!
