Show #085: Rufus P. Bottlesworth
ulandstorm.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/hollywood_squares-150×150.jpg” alt=”” width=”150″ height=”150″ />The eightyth-fiveth episode of our podcast, Paul and Storm Talk About Some Stuff for Five to Ten Minutes (On Average), is now online.
This week’s episode: Special Guest Mike Phirman joins the fray to plug his new CD, “The Very Last Songs I Will Ever Record (Part 1)” and chat about all manner of comedy/music doings; our running personal soundtracks; salsa dancing lessons and gift-giving; child-frightening strategies; his duo’s origins; the obligatory Worst Gig story; stacked entertainment; and the planned tricks on Paul never materialize. Also, a bizarre sound at the 36:21 mark that we’re still not sure what the hell it is.
Songs played (all from Mike Phirman’s “The Very Last Songs I Will Ever Record (Part 1)“): “Chicken Monkey Duck”, “Lollytown”, “Thanksgiving Dinner”, “Clear the Floor”.
The problem with listening to your podcasts on my commute is that I don’t have a car–I just look like a crazy person when I burst out laughing while walking down the street.
“The Magic Clap Power” is the name of my new John Holmes Tribute band.
Aaand now I have to go get Mike’s album. (Chicken chicken monkey chicken monkey duck duck…)
My inner soundtrack is as random as my musical tastes in general. Lately it’s been a combination of songs featured on Glee, some Bollywood, some industrial, and the occasional classic rock.
@Sara — I tend to listen while writing code at work, so I only have my co-workers giving me weird looks when I try to stifle my laughter. They already know I’m strange. 🙂
If my wife is reading this, I really like Mike Phirman’s music and I have a birthday coming up in June. HINT HINT.
I would very much like to refute Mike’s comment about clearing the floor with comedy(Dementia) music. I believe the word he used was “always.” I will concede that pretty much any normal club any where, yes this will happen. However, I DJ Sci Fi cons and you can get away with a limited number of Dementia songs and pack the dance floor. Also, at all 3 Alcon’s, the dance floor was packed while Jeff Morris played nothing but Dementia songs. Granted that’s a special circumstance. I keep a list of “Dementia Dance Music” for whenever I next get the chance to DJ a Dementia Dance. “Clear the Floor” is defiantly getting added to that list. Perhaps a future w00tstock maybe (: I know it’s not really the right environment, but a DJ can dream.
