In-studio notes by Garon Cockrell

NNF 14 C – Mike Schmidt


00 – Players Club!  Head on down to Charlie 27!  Hola!  14 c as in charlie, or as Jimmy hates Chucklebutt,  Jimmy thinks Matt will end up calling Charlie Chucklebutt.

Jimmy and Danielle call oliver Goose.  Jimmy apparently didnt have a nickname as a kid.   Jimmy broke his dad’s heart the day he said he didnt want to kiss him goodbye anymore.   14C we’re there we’re queer lets get used to that.  Jimmy’s friend did not make it on the last train to clarksville.

05 – Stairs and Silence was a great song by Simon and Garfunkel.  One of the only times Jimmys got chills at a concert.  Another was Heart doing Alone, which has never been as good at that.

Jimmy’s on @Midnight this week!  Thursday night!

Jimmy’s admitting to being wrong about twitter as he is enjoying it.  Twitter nerds!   Jimmy’s looking forward to doing the show.  War Pigs is being used in a commercial for 300 and Gears of War 3

10 – Matt brought in a record and a comic book set for Kojak.  Jimmy’s chicago accent is getting worse.  Crocker looks like Dave Anthony .

Matt got it at a vintage store.  They were closed so he had to go back for it and HOPE they still had it.

The former third baseman is here!!

We’re gambling!!

We’ll be back.

Welcome back to the players club!  Gambling coming up!  Record frames on sale at target!

Im in a classic NNF t-Shirt again.  Also sore from work out.

15 – Eliot’s here dressed as Colonel Mustard.  Matt wants to get his lead pipe,  Jimmy says he has a led connector.   Not quite a richard dawson.  Close thogh.  Mustard Valour was mike’s strip club name for a while.

We all got invites to Mayor McCheese’s wedding.  Mike didnt get an invite despite having lunch with the fry guys recently.   “Oh No I have the hamburgler for english.” – Mike Toomey.

Hello Mike Schmidt!!

Jimmy is now opening the floor to questions!

Mike wonders if this is the kid’s table of NNF.  Matt describes it as the inner circle. Continue reading

In-Studio notes by Garon Cockrell

NNF 1403 – John Ross Bowie


00 – Hello! Indeed! 1403! Jimmy is the pioneer of podcasting west coast style! He likes pioneer rather than the first because he was one of the first. Jimmy says we’re the first to use the number system. Jimmy invented numbers.

Sprettzatura shot like a bullet hundreds of numbers past 1.

Sprettzatura is coming to vinyl soon! This is a fan collectible! EOD does not mean every other day eliot.

End Of Day. Business nomenclature. Donald and Ted Nugent hadn’t gone off the rails jet yet when Apprentice started so Jimmy didn’t hate them yet.

05 – Stop using EOD. Decision made. Jimmy’s congested. Continue using the IUD. Jimmy had a little lock up there but he made it through and found the funny.

Chris Kattan arrested on suspicion of DUI.


Jimmy Pardo Pilot March 7! Get tickets by emailing PARDO@CONACOENT.COM Tickets in subject line. 4 max.

10 – Jimmy sings an Eliot has lots of bad ideas song. Eliot had a good idea this morning, tech one not important.

Casey Casem’s show was scripted and he knocked it out in 30 – 35 minutes.

Casey’s 81. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casey_Casem

Doug Benson GPS http://www.mireo.hr/en/navigation-apps/comedian-voices/doug-benson-voice

NNF 14B – Rachel Quaintance

00 – Welcome to Fantasy Island! 14B of the Players Club! B as in Baxter. Do they use Baxter in bingo? P as in Peter. K as in Klan. Racist Jimmy is here! Matt uses Elephant for E. Apparently Llama is the word people are using a lot for L.

Why is the Red Hot Chili Peppers not playing their guitars a big deal? This has been done for years.

05 – Jimmy’s neck did something weird. He’s gonna be okay.

Our guest, Rachel Quaintance is gonna be 8 minutes late guys!

Players Club is relaxed! We’re all friends here. Jimmy calls season 2 The Schmidt Year(s). Matt is comfortable with both that and with Jimmy texting Rachel back.

Players Club will be the first ones to know when tickets for Jimmy’s Pilot taping will be available. Probably a friday (maybe a thursday) in March at around 430 on the Conan stage!

Eliot doesn’t know Jimmy’s life.

10 – I only liked Captain Phillips. Matt spoofs just a gigalo. Jimmy wants me to reconsider my 7/10 for Captain Phillips.

Steve Vai cowrote yellow rose. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yankee_Rose_%28song%29

15 – Matt and Jimmy are trying this seven minute workout fad. Apparently, it’s worth an hours workout. blogs.nytimes.com/2013/05/09/the-scientific-7-minute-workout/?_php=true&_type=blogs&_r=0

Jimmy’s quads can’t handle the squats. Wall sits are fine though. He sits like a horse. Continue reading

00 – Hello! Welcome to 1402! 14aught2. Hello earwolf clan and listeners! Check us out at pardcast.com. Tech troubles? PARDCAST@GMAIL.COM! Not on the message board.

You remember Text Expander? Great Animator! – Matt.

Here is the program Jimmy was talking about. http://smilesoftware.com/TextExpander/touch/

Great time in San Fran! Thanks for coming out everyone! People loved Eliot’s intro! Two versions, Day and Night depending on the episode. Players Club episodes get the night version.

05 – Andy Richter was the other guest at that live show which seems to be episode 622!

Adam Scott is here today!

Plane issues with Southwest. Matt is mad a Johnny South, partner of Bill West.

Full circle.

The guys got stuck in the airport for 5 hours waiting to get on a plane to get to SF.

10 – They enjoyed some food. Chili’s Too, some ice cream. Difference between chills and chills too, http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110414142937AAb3UIp Chilis too are generally in shared space places (Mall, Airport) and may have a smaller menu.

Anyone remember Annie Teeks? 591-Rock 591-Roll

15 – I was being attacked by fuzz. Matt gets Jimmy’s question right 3 for 3! Diane Warren, Chicago, Bill Champlain!

Jimmy was asked to be a part of the history of Chicago (the band) documentary, Now More Than Ever.

Three GREAT things have happened to Jimmy in showbiz: First pitch at White Sox game, filling in for Andy Richter/working on Tonight Show, and the email to be in the Chicago Doc.

Gold Trans Am = Ke$has hoo ha apparently.

Is Jimmy the Joe Mantegna of Podcasting?

20 – “SCREAM FOR ME LONG BEACH!” Chicago/Iron Maiden 1-2 Punch is a very weird combo!

We’ll be back!

05 – Pick it up on Jimmy’s followers. He’s at 6k now.  Let’s get this going.  Jimmy apologizes for his former Twitter stance.  He is now on board.

“Cat hands!”

NNF start date 4/7/2006!  White guys talking.  Lots of comedian podcasters appeared on this show before they started their own podcast.

10 – Eliot’s in a costume.  Jimmy thinks he looks like a used car salesman.  I said a mob heavy.   Jimmy wants to slam Eliot’s face into the table.  Ultra violently.

Do some research on Blackfish.  Lots going on over there according to Jimmy.

15 – Joe Lo Truglio is joining us today! Jimmy has a Chicago accent so he sometimes pronounces earwolf as Airwolf.  Deal with it!

Who is in the Jack head?!  Jimmy thinks it’s Dave Thomas from Wendy’s.    Jimmy is not advocating keeping whales in bathtubs.  Just suggesting to do some follow up.

Jimmy went whale watching with Oliver.  Saw no whales, but tons of dolphins.

Jimmy wore tank tops nearly every day as a kid.  Rocky, Fonzie, no blank ones though. Continue reading

Apparently one part of the fascia is in perfect shape.

Let’s start the new year this way with Jimmy yelling at Eliot.
Jimmy wants to see the plans for the 405 changes. See them here http://www.metro.net/projects/I-405/

05 – Jimmy calls Eliot Johnny Drop a brick. Matt digs the guitar riffs in the Starbeats commercial. Jimmy still can’t get his tea drinking right. He practiced over the near year.

Road house guys: http://www.amazon.com/Road-House-Blu-ray-Patrick-Swayze/dp/B004GGQMWY/ref=sr_1_1_bnp_1_blu?ie=UTF8&qid=1388780099&sr=8-1&keywords=roadhouse

10 – The pain from the Propofol was excruciating. He was telling them to stop it one moment and was out the next. He felt like he slept for hours when it was only 22 minutes. He gets why Michael was addicted to it. Tweet Tweet baby he’s a doc in a cage! (re: Dr. Conrad Murray.) Use your penis when checking Jimmy’s penis. Jimmy had a clean bill of health! No diverticulitis (if he ever had it!). Doc thinks he has a tear in the abdominal muscle. Jimmy recommends going to the doctor if you don’t feel good.

15 – Jimmy and Matt took the kids mini-golfing on New Years Day. Matt did not want Jimmy to see how dirty his car was so he didn’t park near them. Jimmy said he doesn’t care, live your life.
Scott’s our guest! He’s running a tad late.
