"I don't know what your hours are but it doesn't matter, it doesn't matter."

That line has been popping into my head regularly this week and I always start laughing at the inflection in the second part. And "What's your level of involvement there, Charlie?"

"I don't know what your hours are but it doesn't matter, it doesn't matter."

Stuck in my head now too :) Same with 'plain as day':

'Cause I'm fired up'
'What's got you fired up?'
'Well you tell a man you ain't gonna help him with his repair and your sign says repair. Plain as day'

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.

i think my favorite call of all time is super nintendo (pt 1, pt 2)

the way he starts to empathize with the kid then all of a sudden switches back to his empty aggressive threats is classic. also lol at the dad's limp attempts at trying to match his fightin words

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?

YES! That kills me. And the shipping guy's reaction later is so weird.

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

First 13 minutes or so are one call and it's fucking extraordinary. Like I get the feeling at times the guy is fucking with LPC but I'm never quite sure.

Yes, this one is positively amazing.

The one where he calls Sam Goody to ask about the "great buns" videotape, and his pronunciation of "awesome," has been making me laugh all day.

Lauren Schumer Donor (Phil D.), Tuesday, 28 February 2017 19:29 (two years ago) Permalink

yeah he'll get into some kinda weird pronunciation on a call, like sometimes he really exaggerates "li-yup" like "I'll bust yr li-yup" and it cracks me up so much

i get a kick out of him getting recognized. there's a call in the new one like that- any others beyond that and the one above?

Dag... think there's one on 8 or 9 where he's calling a bunch of record stores and someone recognizes him and says "LPC IN THE HOUSE!"

I love the one in 13 - the way LPC reacts cracks me up. And I'm still trying to figure out of the guy who votes for Billy Dee is someone famous.
