I read a review that said there are some calls to celebrities on your releases. Did I miss those? Who are they?

I don't know how to answer that. They're unlisted on there, and I'm unlisted on there, you know? But just for your information, GG Allin and Sidney Portier both make an appearance. GG is the one who is "sitting here drinking Beam," and Sidney is the one who insists that "no one in this house ordered any millipedes."

Yeah! He has such a weird way of emphasizing things, it's hilarious. I love the epic Radio Shack call where he asks the guy what his title is and follows up with "...and your duties include?"

He has a definite Billy Murray/Joel Hodgson deadpan quality.

ok so this podcast is an interview with a guy about his interview with LPC. this documentary style has been bothering me for a while (and this is probably an entirely different thread), but what's the deal with narrators and reporters injecting themselves into the narrative? "so not gonna happen" podcast becomes about the narrator's journey to find the truth about wayne. in the vivian maier doc, why exactly am i watching the narrator going through airport security to board a plane bound for a place where she spent some time?

who do we have to thank for this? moore? herzog?

He released a new triple disc set this month that sold out within 10 minutes, plus he was selling the master tapes to his early discs for like $200 each. For a moment I was considering it, like "what a conversation piece!," then I realized nobody would possibly care except for me and a couple other sociopath loner comedy nerds
