John and Alex tried to record a show after they recorded episode 15, thinking that John would get his act together and record episode 16 with Sara Jean. Of course that didn’t happen…but it will! So this is this is 17 as 16. Don’t expect anything fantastic as it is also the shortest episode of The Oddist ever. Coming in at just over 15 minutes you’ll thank whatever deity you might that it is not any longer than that. If you listen to episode 15 and John and Alex sound drunk…wait until you hear this slurring, babbling mess. Although John thinks it is “Pretty Good!” Hopefully the stories of Kenny Tessel, Fat smugglers and diapers will keep you coming back for the next REAL episode with Sara Jean.
Alcohol is a hell of a thing. John and Alex celebrate The Woodward Dream Cruise by not going to it and getting wasted while recording. Although John reveals the possibility of his becoming a television star if you listen underneath the drunken slurring of his words you find the pain and sadness of acceptance at parental mortality. Alex reviews the movie District 9 and brings us up to date on all the latest news involving glued penises, cat porn, grooming pubic hair, and dead bodies. The truth comes out about John’s dating status and during what is sure to be remembered as the worst shot ever consumed on the show, Elijah Craig Whiskey and Apple Pucker, it takes eleven seconds for our hosts to recover. If you don’t remember this show after listening to it no one will be mad at you because no one remembers recording it.
Since this is episode 13 The Oddist is officially half over for this season. John and Alex discuss prison penis tattoos, squirrels in shirts, the sex life of “furries”, and fist fights. Is John’s drinking becoming a problem? How do you get kicked out of a casino? Find out! A silly little episode that is everything you want from The Oddist. This is the perfect background noise for when you are home alone trying to figure out why you are home alone. Someone doesn’t make it for the “Waiting for Soup” portion of the show…Alex or John? Place your bets!
This is it! The halfway point of no return! The first meeting of co-hosts! Listen to the excitement of Alex and Sara Jean trying to hold the show together while John slurs words and makes little to no sense. News stories are read, sounds are combined an iPod Nano is given away in the most confusing of manners. The silliest of shows but still containing, what could have been, startling stories of suicide and battery attacks if John would have been coherent enough to string a rational thought together. If you’ve never experienced someone who is in the “I love you guys” stage of drunkenness then enjoy this laugh packed show.
What happens when Sara Jean goes on vacation and Alex and John talk serious? Well it only happens for a few minutes but it’s here. Then of course it breaks down into the usual tomfoolery and drunken rambling. No guest on this episode but when John and Alex go out for drinks on Cinco de Mayo and come back to record “Waiting for Soup” it is absolutlely ridiculous, like really dumb…funny…but really drunk and dumb.
What was supposed to be a nice short show turned into one of the longest episodes in the history of The Oddist. Alex and John weigh themselves, discuss shopping and what happens when you “break” an erection. For the first time on The Oddist there are two guests, brothers none the less, who review films, talk of tanning and police training and one even admits for the first time he may actually be in a relationship. Check out the extra eight minutes of this show on www.iheartalking.com when people phone the show, as requested, and John messes the whole thing up.
