Episode 44: Pilots: March 5, 2019

32 minutes

Blade is still with RD at his home following the earlier recording of the standard radio progrem. His Jazz Overnight sounds very sleepy now though. He entertains the people about how he can't remember most of their old episodes, unsurprisingly. However at least he's not drinking right now. Small steps and all.

Since RD has been encouraging listener participation for this show's incarnation, Zap Fabian suggested reviewing an old episode (:04). So RD takes a look at the pilot, all the way back in August 2005. (:07)

  • The audio quality remains in high phone-buzzing over-modulated fidelity.
  • "You know."
  • The progrem was originally started before their appearance on Get In The Ring Radio...which they killed off, sending the original podcasters off the Internet.
  • RD sure talked a lot back then, at least compared to "greenhorn" Blade and in talking about WC. 
  • Someone reviewing it at the time thought of it as a "17 minute voice IM. " (:17)
  • RD links current Sunny to Maude back then. This gives Blade a coughing fit. I hope he doesn't cough straight into RD's microphone. 
    The Once and Future Bea
  • RD forgot who Clumsy Girl was. Don't feel too bad, I forgot too.
  • Neither likes how they sounded then. (:13)
  • RD still doesn't watch much of Raw.  
  • Young RD had a Tivo from 2003. 
  • Blade was partying hard at Young RD's age of 36.
  • Tim Conway and Tom Wopat are still alive...for now.
  • RD wants to ask people about Dorff. (:17)
  • Young RD: "How did we get on Don Knotts?" RD: "That's a question you'll ask a lot, RD."
  • Kerwin White was discussed a lot, for obvious reasons. (:21)
  • So too the Boogeyman.
  • Revenge of the Nerds came out in 1984. 
  • The two are not used to their old voices talking about Gooker nominees in August. (:26)
  • RD was sad he didn't make a Heidenrich Energy quip. "I'm really confused...What is wrong with you, young RD?"
  • RD is surprised Blade did not make a trashbag reference.  (:28)

Blade wants to makeup haiku for the episode, though oddly he doesn't do so here now. RD is surprised people still wanted to listen after, or paid to listen after, either then or now. I believe Vince says the same thing of his own product every day instead of relating to the middle class.

281 Chicks With Chips: March 5, 2019

Oh, Hi Blade.

85 minutes

Blade is once again visiting RD at his home after more than 10 years. He is thankful he can be Jazz Overnight instead of using a "burner" phone. He still has a Big Announcement somewhere. He was in Chicago for Cory Udler's birthday, hence the subsequent visit.

The two plan to record another RD&BS immediately after; in following their desire for user participation they will follow one's request by going over an old show. (:05)

Blade got lost in this very site while recently browsing it. I cannot blame him, this place is VERY extensive. (:09)

Blade went by himself to a ghetto gas station in Philadelphia. (:10) He bought their local Homegirls (Sweeties flavor) potato chips which confuses him for some reason. They turn out as sweet as the packaging. Their brother brand, Chumpies, are also sweet, albeit less so.

RD has a stroopwafel from his Dutch grocery. Blade becomes nostalgic when eating it which fills his head as he doesn't have any words. "It's...different." Then: "it's very good." RD has to explain to him what a stroopwafel is including the Wikipedia mentioned custom of placing one over a cup of coffee to loosen the syrup inside. Unfortunately, he only has Diet Mountain Lightning at the moment, which is not good hot OR cold.

RD has polished his Faxtrolla. (:22) Woman Gorgeous George has pickles which sounds like something Man Gorgeous George would have had (while he was alive of course). The Co-Fruitcakes silent interactive a video on her Facebook page about George Frankenstein's Dill With It Pickles. Blade decides to buy some. RD abstains, as he is not a big pickle man. Ahem.

Blade: "Do you like soap?"

RD is speechless. (:28)

This is supposedly a segue to Hollywood making organic soap to sell on Etsy. Blade is confused by some of the flavors. He still has his Rock talking soap, which has a better shelf life and audience than Francine's fetish used soap.

As mentioned before in exasperation, Tam was arrested. (:34) The difference this time is that there was actually an article on WWE (you know things are bad when they have something!) which Blade reads as he calls himself a "talent-less drunk". That implies he had talent in the first place. Like me RD is (still) speechless that she's still out and about afterwards her SIXTH drunk driving incident (after "video conferencing" with a judge to make things even more absurd.)

Blade recounts how he got a DWI on his 18th birthday (but not for being underage) which put him on the straight and narrow to drink at home nowadays. Good man. It is frightening that he has his head on straighter than (the older) Tam.

Maryse is expecting her second child. (:40)

As mentioned earlier Blade was in Chicago to see Cory for his birthday, and KISS (not for their birthday). (:43) For some reason (drinking at home perhaps?) he randomly did Nintendo John for a change (though Blade with that different than usual audio setup sounded like he had aged into Cranky Kong), alongside his friend's Honky Tonk Mailman (thankyouverymuch) and Gene and Paul, the latter two being visited at a eerily silent "backstage". Apparently Madison Rayne is returning. Blade laughs loudly throughout. Shockingly the HTMM does not provide any stamp news.

Corey Strode (not on Patreon) asks a question about WOW. (:56) RD guesses Blade would prefer Russo WCW. Surprisingly however, he instead prefers 1988 WWF. Santana Garrett of current WOW debuted in a show with Blade - I mean the Midnight Rose. Like him I mix those two up also. Also it's his 10th anniversary. Rose, not Blade. Like me I don't think he's reached 5 years of maturity yet.

Ed Leslie, of all people, is entering the Hall of Fame. (:60) The Fruitcakes wonder who else should be inducted. This is not a repeat from last year when they also did this, which is itself not a repeat from the month before that when they also did this. (:71)

Blade wants the Midnight Express post-roster change, Miss Elizabeth and her granny panties, and Demolition. RD wants Jim Cornette, the British Bulldogs, and the Goobledy Gooker, of course.

Blade never had a problem with Roman Reigns. (:73) Big Dave Bistro has also returned. Sources are having Kofi Kingston against Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania. Blade finally has his own Becky Lynch doll, who RD now considers his favorite female wrestler ever after her master trolling online [What? There's no mention of The Room's Tommy Wiseau wanting to be special guest ring announcer at Wrestlemania 35? You're Tearing Me Apart, R.D.! -RVM Kai].

Seventeen Syllables to say about that:
Becky with a dick.
Russo bomb at Mania:
Penis on a pole.
