A-Rod, Justin, and Wilson belt out the tunes

Hope you guys had a great weekend! Wilson, Linda, A-Rod, and a few other friends got our karaoke on at a place in KoreaTown on Friday! We had a blast singing all the hits; Wilson's going to kill me for telling you guys this, but that fool totally sang "Two Become One!" Trust me, you haven't lived a complete life until you've seen a grown man on his knees singing spice girls. Yeesh, it's been two full days and I'm still trying to shake that image from my head, although he definitely wasn't alone--I was right there next to him belting out off-key remix of Camron, Usher, and yes--they even had Disney music! Elton John ain't got nothin' on Slim Yeezy! The night ended with a live Rickroll, too, I couldn't believe they had "Never Gonna Give You Up" in the book, unreal.

If you listen to our show a lot, you'll notice that two key elements are missing from today's episode...first, the old carpet is gone and replaced by beautiful new asphalt gray nothingness, but you probably didn't even notice. The second piece missing is a bit more obvious: Wilson! Mr. Tang is taking some very well-deserved time off for the next two days to rest, relax, and rethink some of the questionable life decisions he's made (jk, Wilson's never even made a mistake), so Jeff and I take up the mantle to do a two-man show. And hey, if a joke tanks, no big deal- we can, and do, use our very own Wilson Tang laugh track! OH! And speaking of promotions, our very awesome friend Jamey recorded this fantastic clip! Please please please download it and post it wherever you want, you have our blessing and thanks in advance!

Very thorough execution of the "creepy pedophile" look

With Wilson gone, there's nobody in the studio to stop us from saying whatever pops into our little brains, which makes for some pretty...uhh...interesting conversations, especially when we have such kooky stories to work with! Seriously, we can't make this stuff up--in a nutshell, we seriously consider wearing men's tights, discuss the merits of calling 911 about a botched turkey sandwich, condemn a pedophile's right to press charges against anyone, and of course the weekend movie box office craze! Was Batman finally dethroned by Brendan Frasier's undead pile of garbage? Not likely, but listen to find out anyway!
