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.
John and Sara Jean discuss John’s failure with women, “cults of swingers” and peeing on planes…on people. This show was originally 2 1/2 hours long but John got it down to 78 minutes without losing the conversation about “penis haircuts” and how Piston Richard Hamilton needs Lasik Tongue Surgery. If you want to learn how to win an iPod, call the show, or why John is ultimately a douche-bag this is the show for you!
Once again there is no guest on this episode of The Oddist but that is mearly to make way for the historically epic most totally drunk episode ever. Alex shows up with some news, as per usual, and things get off to a giggly start. John reads an email from a girl who doesn’t want to be mentioned on the show and then comes…WAITING FOR SOUP. Waiting for soup is where this show spirals out of control, don’t ask what happens because even after listening…you won’t know. Pretty much the best episode so far…or the worst.
Since John got drunk and woke up late he missed his chance of doing a guest interview. Sara Jean and John hold the show together with giggles, animal sounds and positivity…as positive as John can get when he isn’t taking girls shopping after the bar and burning pizza. You will also bear witness to a first on The Oddist as John’s mother calls during the show to remind him that he never calls and is lonely. Heartbreakingly funny.
Alex wakes John up to do the show, read the news and say “Goodonya” John promises to edit out Alex’s mistakes and then leaves them in for comedy value. It’s a good thing that interviewee John Davies, publisher of Superbitch Magazine, likes to talk because John is kind of wasted. Listen to Mr. Davies discuss boobs, boobs and guitars…and boobs while Tenney randomly says, “Right.” Don’t forget to listen to “Waiting for Soup” after the music, so you can hear Alex be horrified by Tenney’s night-terrors. A show filled with vulgar language and darkness. ENJOY!
