17 Halloween

Peter and Grant’s IndieGoGo 

00 – Welcome in!

Our thoughts go out to the people in Oregon with this new shooting.

Jimmy wants Jim Beaver from Deadwood on the show

Jimmy prefers prompter to queue cards.

We lost Peter Falk. Too soon. Matt says his eye is still around. It’s in the Smithsonian.

Jimmy was a little late today. He did see Eliot on the freeway on the way here. Eliot saw Jimmy get on the freeway one car ahead of him.

Jimmy was honking and some dumb cooz who was doing everything wrong.

05 – Jimmy is proud of Eliot’s freeway technique. “Gorgeous driving!” – Jimmy

Jimmy says he let Eliot beat him so he could get here and set up. In truth, Jimmy got stuck behind a truck in the HOV lane.

Jimmy reiterates his being impressed by Eliot’s driving to the point that he couldn’t consider running him off the road.

We talk about the comments on my wifi post on FB.

Jimmy talks about strong man competitions.

clean and jerk10 – Clean and jerk talk. We talk to Grant about lifting. He is a fan of the deadlift and thinks the clean and jerk is too risky. He deadlifted 350 in college.

Jimmy wonders what would happened if he wanted to jerk but not clean.

Jimmy and Grant talk personal training. Grant explains.

He questions Jimmy’s 50 push-ups a day.
Grant’s trainer’s advice is too look in the mirror. If you like what you see, don’t worry about the scale.

Matt has more than once come across ATMs that only give 50s.

Russ wants to show us his lime water face. Eliot not paying attention. He’s on his heals from Jimmy’s compliments.

It was a rough Q&A apparently. Bryan wasn’t really all that forthcoming with answers on a few questions.
