WTF with Marc Maron (it's a podcast)

The bit I liked best was Andy Dick laying into his 'birth' father for wanting to get back in touch because of his money, then claiming to have offered any woman that he got pregnant financial support to make up for the fact he couldn't parent any resulting child, and then further making it clear that despite the fact he was only in his own children's lives until the age of five, he still paid his way.

the australia stand-up clip he played recently where he called out the heckler was some srs lulz

Mordy, Thursday, 28 April 2011 22:19 (3 years ago) Permalink

yeah that was pretty good. his heckler stories are always great...cool to hear a live clip!

i was really fine w/ andy dick on this idk i dont have any neg feelings built up abt him and get maybe a little that hes like proactively trying 2 play the sympathy card here & cotton favor & knows maron has a p huge audience but i truly felt some sympathy 4 the dude! altho of course hes brought everything on himself & earned the rep as a fuckup

he creeps me right the fuck out...I still havent finished listening yet

VegemiteGrrl, Thursday, 28 April 2011 22:27 (3 years ago) Permalink

meh, hes just a messed up dude. not like im ever gonna go see him or anything but thats mostly cuz i dont really think hes funny and nvr have

I did end up really liking the Andy Dick episode after my initial misgivings. Much as I wanted Maron to go at him more, in the end I was kind of touched by Maron's genuine affection for him. I mean, he is still a fuckup, no question...but kind of fucking sad to know that he knows he is fucked up but that he doesn't want to deprive himself. I dunno. It was like hearing Maron interview his fuckup kid brother or something...he tried to act like "Andy Dick" for a while at first and the way Maron just let it go right by, not even call him on his crazy outbursts and weird pervy statements, it was a good way to get to something that was closer to the real Andy. Or something like him. I dunno. I definitely came away with a different impression.

also Sue Costello was great. Got a bit selfhelpy at times, some of the therapy-language gets a bit much for me, but her message, her journey really hit home for me. Should send the whole interview to my Mum, lol.

I don't know who she is but Sue Costello's laugh gave me tingly feelings, the good kind. She was a bit self-helpy, yeah, but I liked her.

her laugh was terrific, I agree totally.

Winters interview was great

President Keyes, Monday, 9 May 2011 13:23 (3 years ago) Permalink

Man, just listened to the Tobolowsky, and his stories of hanging out with the Vaughan Bros. are great. Totally weird he was there at so many important junctures (at least as far as Stevie Ray and Jimmy Vaughan go).

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 9 May 2011 18:11 (3 years ago) Permalink

Damn, that Jonathan Winters episode was like a big comfy blanket. He was so great! And Maron was really good with him. Excellent episode, for sure.

Eddie Pepitone made me legit lul on the recent live ep

Mordy, Tuesday, 10 May 2011 03:15 (3 years ago) Permalink

Winters was the total opposite of the bitter old showbiz vet. Cool to see someone able to amuse himself with his own talent.

President Keyes, Tuesday, 10 May 2011 13:25 (3 years ago) Permalink

That crazy zookeeper character made me lolol

VegemiteGrrl, Tuesday, 10 May 2011 15:55 (3 years ago) Permalink

this is kind of illuminating/sad, from that ny mag louis ck article:

(I ask him about whether he and Maron are back in touch after years of estrangement, and he says they are, now and then. “I tell him I’m happy to sit down anytime for a real conversation, but he just wants me to do the podcast again. It’s a little weird.”)

he called Louis from the podcast recently -- they've got a weird relationship for sure

Mordy, Monday, 16 May 2011 17:41 (3 years ago) Permalink

like, i don't just blame Maron. Louis CK is clearly a pretty weird guy too.

Mordy, Monday, 16 May 2011 17:41 (3 years ago) Permalink

Sounds like an Apatow movie waiting to happen

anyone worthwhile is prob somewhat weird

Shandling episode is GREAT!

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 26 May 2011 08:15 (3 years ago) Permalink

Also, I now have a crush on Sue Costello.

(Caught up on several shows over the last couple days.)

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 26 May 2011 08:15 (3 years ago) Permalink

loved Shandling...especially the way he tries to help Maron.

Janet Snakehole (VegemiteGrrl), Thursday, 26 May 2011 15:45 (3 years ago) Permalink

shandling episode was good, such a funny weird dude
steve byrne came off like an ignorant republican asshole

mizzell, Thursday, 26 May 2011 15:50 (3 years ago) Permalink

yeah i didnt warm to steve byrne. the dane cook story was funny though.

Michael B, Thursday, 26 May 2011 15:55 (3 years ago) Permalink

true, that was good

mizzell, Thursday, 26 May 2011 15:56 (3 years ago) Permalink

I didnt like Byrne at all.
Also Carlin's wife gave me weird vibes...loved the stories but she was a little odd

Janet Snakehole (VegemiteGrrl), Thursday, 26 May 2011 17:08 (3 years ago) Permalink

I've never heard the entire Dane Cook episode but in that clip he came across as such a douche, not able to laugh at himself at all and very concerned about Setting the Record Straight.

President Keyes, Thursday, 26 May 2011 17:17 (3 years ago) Permalink

The Phil Rosenthal episode was very skippable.

polyphonic, Thursday, 26 May 2011 17:18 (3 years ago) Permalink

I'm torn on Cook...I think Maron was kind of a dick, but Cook did feel kind of distant or guarded, and Maron was maybe trying to lighten him up
I felt like I understood Cook a little better though...I still dont like him but I'm glad he opened up a little, even if it wasnt quite what I wanted

Janet Snakehole (VegemiteGrrl), Thursday, 26 May 2011 18:01 (3 years ago) Permalink

Rosenthal is a boring interview, yeah, but I still kind of want to see his docucomedy.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 27 May 2011 03:39 (3 years ago) Permalink

And I agree that the Sally Wade ep was weird. I'd nodded off for a couple minutes toward the end and her crying woke me up.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 27 May 2011 03:40 (3 years ago) Permalink

The Jupiter thing got way more serious than I banked on

Janet Snakehole (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 27 May 2011 03:41 (3 years ago) Permalink

It was cool as a concept & very Carlin...but from her it was oddly intense

Wonder what her standup comedy was like? o_O

Janet Snakehole (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 27 May 2011 03:42 (3 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I'm glad she's chosen to share all this stuff, but her personality is such that it's probably just more enjoyable to thumb through the book than to hear her speak about it.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 27 May 2011 03:45 (3 years ago) Permalink

^^^

Janet Snakehole (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 27 May 2011 04:03 (3 years ago) Permalink

i'm sure it's a horrible thing to think but i was kinda disappointed Carlin had a relationship with her. and the Jupiter alien letters stuff... well, I guess even brilliant ppl have embarrassing corny personal lives.

Mordy, Friday, 27 May 2011 04:10 (3 years ago) Permalink

rosenthal was nice butnice like an uncle you are cool with sharing 10 minutes with every couple of months.

shandling trying to bring down america was o_O

needs a bubble between the last two where he talks at length about his own relationship with his father

Maron is live in studio on the Best Show tonight. FYI!

polyphonic, Tuesday, 31 May 2011 16:41 (3 years ago) Permalink

cool!

Really enjoyed the Harmon interview. He seems like a very cool, genuine guy. And the self-doubt makes him more likeable to me, like oh hey I feel like that all the time & have done fuckall...makes me realize I really am the only obstacle to me doing cool things :)
