Steve Carlesi is fondly remembered, with a brief appearance by Stinky. Management dopes. Funny rape jokes are funny. The shitty painting should be a media project. Paterno's head on a pole. Snow-day audio.
Bill Burr is on the blower. 'What's the deal with airline peanuts?' Hank Simpson battles the marketers. Bill's a big star now. Steve the gay cat.
FX lineup reviewed. When the lights went out ... unexpected Worst Of. Jim Jefferies phoner. Ticket trouble and news. "I guess that's the way the whole durned human comedy keeps perpetuatin' itself".

  5. Lights went out? Unexpected worst of? Intriguing. I started listening to the show every day just after Steve C left so I dont know a lot about him outside of Yeeeeeees. Nevertheless - rest in peace.

    1. No, the lights out thing is misleading. Sorry.

      They just play the old bit about Scott Muni's Empire State sniper nest.

    1. don't they say that every year? maybe they will just podcast. it would suck either way this show is like heroin.

    2. I hope it's the end of the show on Sirius/XM.. that company will never stop killing the show.

      Hopefully they go the podcast route considering Cumia has a studio in his compound and bring back the really great shit they just can't do anymore.

    3. I bet it won't. I get the impression there's nothing else in the pipeline. If a new buyer comes in there'd be justification to stay on.

      Opie bitches about money but podcasting just doesn't seem to have the $ in it when you look at someone like Marc Maron, who claims he's not really above the struggle and he's got one of the most popular shows out. But who knows though! Opie said he never has to work again so maybe he'd suffer for his art.

    4. I'd be shocked if they didn't re-up at Sirius. Claims of "fuck you" money or no, with the way Anthony spends, Opie and his wife shitting out babies and Norton legitimately loving doing radio, it makes too much sense for it to not happen. I've thought Opie's podcast bit was a negotiation tactic from the first time he "let it slip" on the air. My guess is they're trying to not go the part-time route like Howard, but maybe trying to get a bigger studio, a little more cash and maybe a couple four day weeks here and there. Pure speculation, but I guarantee they stick around.

    5. Yes of course it's a negotiation "tactic". Opie's a ham-handed moron that made his strategy(if it can be called that) known about 8 seconds after he first mentioned podcasting.

      Just like his constant non sequiturs of "I'm so leaving after October!" and "I've got Fuck You Money!" followed by a fake and uncomfortable Ant chuckle. No you aren't, and no you don't Opie. You have one kid and another on the way, you have a hot young wife, and you live in a gigantic Manhattan apartment and you're looking for a beach house. The level of Fuck You Money it would take to fuel that lifestyle for the rest of your life would need to reach Howard proportions.

      Fuck off Opie and leave this sculpture of sand to Ant and Jim before you fuck everything up...

  10. How great would it be if Steve just had his wife tell Erock's wife that he'd died to get out of the house warming thing?

  15. steve provided soooo many great clips over the years. and impersonating his gay voice is addicting.

  16. Off-topic but what are you thinking about Louie this season?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Does anybody know of a site that has O&A shows from the XM days (ca. 2004-2009)? The old Steve bits were so funny, I'd love to download some of those episodes.

  18. It's weird when shit gets real sometimes, but I feel really bad about this Steve C thing. :(
