    Superb job as usual, Darryl…just a minor nitpick: it’s the T.A.M.I show not Tammy…. (Teen Age Music International concert or Teenage Awards Music International hell, THEY couldn’t even make up their minds….

    Keep up the great work!

    • Nit-pick noted and corrected, Hugginator! Thanks! All nit-picks and corrections are welcome.

      I usually do a little Googling for things I’m not sure about, but in this case I was too busy counting f-words and linking the Sing alongs to YouTube that I had to throw in the towel!

      Thanks for the kind words. Glad you enjoy the site.

  • Love the “fuck” count and all the “Darryl Shout Outs”

    Great job!!!

  • luke

    Wow Darryl, this episode literally has your name and face written all over it. What’s it gonna take to make that Darryl shout out tee a reality? In the future whenever you’re referenced on the show, Eliot can just cut to the shirt. “Shirt cam shout out!” They would say. Nobody is or will ever say that.

    This site really is remarkable Darryl. Keep it up you’re doing god’s work.

    • And the episode where Eliot does that will be called “The One Where Eliot Gets Fired.”

      Thanks Luke! I appreciate the nice words!

  • Jilly


    This was my favorite Never Not Notes episode to read! I was so excited for you when Jimmy/Matt/Mike kept referring to you because I knew you’d get to put your shout out icon on the time stamp every time.

    Love the site! 🙂

    • Thanks tons, Jilly. Glad you enjoy the site!

      I don’t want to place too much importance on the shout-outs. They are just the only thing that gives my life meaning.

      No pressure, though, guys.

  • Someone needs to tell Jimmy that the way to remember how to pronounce the Willamette (river, which it’s named after) Week is that it rhymes with “Dammit”. Wil-lam-it dammit!

    • That’s a good mnemonic! I’d pronounce it Willa-MET if left to my own devices. Let’s see if it works for Jimmy!

      Good to see a familiar face drop by. See you in a couple weeks!

  • Pelkey

    I loved the notes and the links (I don’t always know the songs they refer to, so this is VERY helpful to my continuing cultural education). . Very funny brief summarizations, too!
    And I also have always apparently incorrectly thought it was Willa MET — (there are some great pinot gris wines from that valley).

  • This is a Darryl shout out, sing along with Jimmy kind of episode, I like it.

  • jinbug

    This is the most genius thing ever.

    One question: Is there a Rainbow Bridge icon? I didn’t see one anywhere. I could be wrong, tho…

    (Mike says, “I’m gonna have to get someone from Rainbow Bridge to run the transcripts…” at 22:35. That was brilliant! And the name lends itself to a great graphic…)

    Love all the details & the links! This is really nicely done!

    • Hi jinbug, thanks for the nice words!

      You are correct: there is not (yet) a Rainbow Bridge icon. It came up a lot in earlier seasons, but not so much lately.

      There’s a very precise method I use when determining which topics get icons. The formula involves: 1) The frequency of the topic; 2) how funny I think the icon will be; 3) how drunk I am when working on the notes; 4) how much patience I have with just getting them done and ready for reading.

      Be assured that your suggestion has been put before the Never Not Notes Steering Committee, and will be considered.

      Thanks again!

  • Ronnie

    Darryl, finally followed your link from the MF forums. This is pretty damned funny, I love the “sing along with Jimmy” and the Pardo Health Meter. I remember that one season where he had leg problems, a persistent cold, a headache, and something else all in a row and thinking that someone should keep track of all that. How anything for the “Sweep of the out of town scoreboard”?

    I also never realized just how many sing-alongs there were. Good stuff man, good stuff.

    • Thanks Ronnie, glad you like it.

      As far as the sweep of the scoreboards, he never actually gets to the sweep of the scoreboards, so no icon!
