Adam begins the show discussing how he was woken up in the middle of the night by his carbon monoxide alarm going off. He talks about the famous tennis player who died from carbon monoxide poisoning, and wonders why women are more concerned about filtered water, and less about the more serious dangers. The guys also listen to another snippet of The Lotzi Tapes, where Adam’s grandpa talks about growing up in Hungary during WWI.
Today’s guest is blogger Kelly Oxford, who’s recently been spending more time in LA thanks to the very generous Jimmy Kimmel and his girlfriend, Molly. Adam talks to Kelly about writing a pilot that was eventually executive produced by Jessica Alba, and asks her if she ever tried to be a model. Kelly talks about ‘conning her way’ into the business, but mostly just focusing on blogging since 1997. The guys also talk about conversations that their parents should have had with them, but never did.
Moving into the day’s news, the top story is Bam Margera’s response to Roger Ebert’s insensitive tweet about the passing of Jackass member Ryan Dunn. Adam says that Ebert is entitled to his opinion, but that he probably should have given everyone a week or so to mourn. Kelly agrees, saying that people tweet offensive stuff all the time, and doesn’t see why this is news. Also in the news is the announcement of disturbing new cigarette labels, and the announcement of a Mormon running for President.
Adam speaks about how he doesn’t care who runs for President, as long as they’re level headed and have a moral compass that points straight. He points out that it doesn’t really matter that we now have a black President, things haven’t really changed all that much. As the show wraps up, the guys talk about Michael Bay finally breaking his silence as to why Megan Fox was replaced in the latest Transformers movie, and the group discusses whether or not Megan still has a career ahead of her.
