Today' s show is very unusual, since we don't actually talk about any stories, but we're all too lucid to give a damn. Paul Ramsay, professional hypnotist, joins us in the studio to put us under his trance while he explains how the process works, the benefits of hypnotherapy, and the overall power of the mind. If nothing else, you have to hear him put Wilson into the most docile state we've ever seen, to the point where he start to drool and we're forced to tape a cup to his chin. Later on, in the … Read more
Alternate show title: Where Wilson Tang is the worst son ever. As much as we love Wilson's Mom calling in and recording her voice for us, we can't help but give Wilson flak for exploiting his own flesh and blood. Today's show starts off innocently enough with a story about a disgustingly delicious Super Bowl snack, but in typical 404 fashion, it quickly sinks to dirtier waters (pun intended) thanks to yours truly. You know what? I don't even regret it! And special thanks to our surprise visitor, listen in to find out whom!
Filthy filthy … Read more
Don't get your longjohns in a knot; even though we'd love more love makin' (not to each other), that show title is actually an inside joke about one of the stories on today's show. We invite our resident love guru MTI back onto the show to get his expert opinion on making love to vegetables, how to use a headset in the boudoir, and more passionate stories from around the Internet. It's all love today on The 404!
Today's show is all about helping you out in the sack. Unfortunately, we can't be there … Read more
We made it onto Engadget! Well, sort of. It was kind of an accident, but Engadget is Engadget right? On today's show, we discuss some video game news with our buddy Russ Frushtick, the games editor for UGO.com. We also talk about our accidental plug on Engadget.com, explore some of the unhealthiest foods on the planet, and we briefly consider raising our kids on our favorite movies from the sci-fi universe. The second half gets absurdly dirrrty, with red light talks on fleshlights, 3d porn, massage therapy, and a very disturbing reading from Wilson Tang.
Today's … Read more
Sun leen fai lok! For all you non-Chinese speakers out there, that's "Happy New Year" in Chinese--go hug something yellow. We kick off the Year of the Ox with a ban on Jeff's Engrish impressions and cruise through a few No Duh stories from the Internet. Turns out alcohol has a hand in unwanted sex and gamers are antisocial!? Whodathunk?
To celebrate the Chinese lunar Year of the Ox, Wilson and I pull Jeff through another show. Ohhhhh. Just kidding, we give Jeff a hall pass and explain a few things about the new year customs. … Read more
If there's such a thing as too much fun, we don't want to hear about it. Richard Blakeley grabs the guest mic and washes his hands of the CES 2008 prank once and for all. He also gets meta on the state of Internet video, helps us make fun of Twitter just a little more, and dishes tips on how to pick the perfect couture halter-top ensemble.
Comic Sans really is a terrible look for a font. It might've been cool to write an essay about Christopher Columbus in it in third grade, but now it makes you seem uneducated. Do like Obama and stick with Helvetica or Georgia. Anyway, on today's show we tackle the hard issues and correct a few mistakes, like coming down too hard on Obama for screwing up the Presidential Oath. Also, a rather large helping of Calls from the Public calling Wilson out on his b.s.--no surprise there! (Wilson's note: Just because Jeff and Justin don'… Read more
Wilson's back and feeling mellow after yesterday's inauguration, so we take advantage of his good spirits to ream him for taking the day off. He gives us an in-depth review of his party at the Apollo and the movie Gran Torino. We also cover a superwide range of hilarious stories today, including Google crimes, the Razzies, school bus stories, the Phantom Bathroom Smearer, and Phacebook Phishers.
According to this article, Australians apparently have terrible manners when it comes to using cell phones and other tech gadgets in public. Some of the statistics listed are: 48 percent of Australians … Read more
The 404 started a bit late today, in honor of our new president's inauguration. It's just Justin and I today, as Wilson took the day off to fantasize about Barack Obama. Don't worry kiddies, Wilson will return tomorrow (or so he says). Plenty to discuss on this historic day, so we'll give you our take on the inauguration and what we thought of Obama's speech.
Justin and I then dive into today's stories, which include iPods held for ransom, Keanu Reeves and the Cowboy Bebop movie, Google Drive, and Taco Bell weddings. Don't … Read more
Major props to Capt. Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger III of U.S. Airways Flight 1549 for ditching the plane in the Hudson River after a double-engine failure and flying over the George Washington Bridge. Jeff Bakalar remains frightened for his life by flying.
In addition, the Watchmen movie debacle is settled between Warner Bros. and Fox, giving Justin Yu an early birthday present. Speaking of which, Wilson Tang will be joining the soon-to-be 25-year-old Mr. Yu for an Asian karaoke lovefest. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Rickrolls the Interwebs about a year and a half way too late, but … Read more
