Adam welcomes Alanna Ubach back to the show, and they immediately begin talking about her heritage. Adam asks her to rate Mexicans and Puerto Ricans, and he also talks about pissing off his Guatemalan nanny for saying she's Mexican. Alanna talks about her father's work doing lithography for gay porn and Q-VO magazine, and Adam talks about his own experience getting a gay magazine as a gag gift.

 

Adam takes time to tell a couple stories from the San Genero festival and its many proud Italian-Americans. Later in the show, they watch a particularly raunchy clip from the film Showgirls, and laugh about Robert Davi's appearance in both the film and the festival.

 

In the news, Last Comic Standing judge Greg Giraldo was found in critical condition after experiencing an accidental overdose of prescription drugs. Adam talks a bit about the difficulties of life on the road, and the types of brains that benefit from doing drugs. Also in the news, Quentin Tarantino's editor Sally Menke was recently found dead on a hiking trail in Los Angeles. Adam and Alanna discuss the tragedy, and talk about the hottest day on record here in Los Angeles.

 

Larry Miller is back in studio, and says he's in a bad mood. Earlier they watched the clip from Showgirls, and Larry says that he was up for the same part as Robert Davi. Adam complains about how casting directors are always the opposite gender of the part they are reading for, and wonders why it has to be that way. Before Larry heads out, they play a few rounds of the Hypothetical Road Trip Game.

 

Director Andy Fickman is back on the show, and talks about his newest film, 'You Again'. Adam reminds Andy that the last time he was in studio, they were talking about another of his films, 'Race to Witch Mountain', starring Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. Andy talks about working under the Disney banner, and also his earlier experiences working in advertising and theater trying to work his way up. They also spend time talking about some of Andy's favorite actors to work with, including The Rock, and also Anna Farris.

 

Alanna finishes up the news talking about Jeffrey Jones' recent guilty plea for not updating his sex offender registration. The punishment involves (among other things) 250 hours of community service, and this leads Adam into complaints about the filthy roads here in LA. Also in the news is a controversy surrounding the winner of Australia's Next Top Model, and wrapping up the show, Alanna jokes about her Swedish husband's drinking and smoking habits, comparing them to Americans.

 

Be sure to check out You Again, in theaters now.

Sep 28, 2010

Adam sits down one-on-one to talk with Ken Burns about his latest documentary, ‘Baseball: The Tenth Inning.’ It’s a continuation of his previous Baseball documentary, and covers everything from 1992 to yesterday. Adam compliments Ken on several of his previous documentaries, and Ken talks about editing everything up until the last second. They also talk a bit about Mark Twain, and other documentaries they’ve enjoyed over the years.

 

Ken discusses growing up loving baseball, but realizing he knew very little about the sport. He says that he likes to look at each new project as an immersion into something new. He talks about his upcoming projects, including specials on the dustbowl era, prohibition, and the Vietnam war. Adam finds out more about the documentary process, and the guys talk about some of their favorite baseball moments. Ken says it’s crucial to tell a story when you make a documentary, and especially with baseball it has to be more than just statistics or who won.

 

After some discussion about the debilitating effects of steroids, Adam talks about his own career playing baseball in high school. This leads him into a story about filling in for Tommy Lasorda to be the Grand Marshall of Mardi Gras, and also an in depth comparison of baseball to softball.

 

Adam finds out more about a ‘normal day’ for Ken Burns, which seems to revolve around either being on the road promoting, or locked in an edit bay ‘trying to make something better out of the footage.’ Ken discusses how unique it is to have a series on PBS where you can have over two hours of uninterrupted content, and talks about how they raise money and research their topics. They also talk about some of the more complex themes that Ken has had to discuss over the years, and the ‘vow of poverty’ he took to become a documentarian.

 

One of Ken’s upcoming projects is about prohibition, but Ken says it’s really about right wing single issue campaigns that grow out of control. They talk about smear campaigns, and all the unintended consequences of prohibition; including organized crime, female alcoholism, and all sort of other social transformations. Ken also offers a reason for the world’s obsession with alcohol, and relates everything to escapism. Lastly, the guys discuss the sensitive subject of race issues here in America, and Adam is very impressed with Ken’s opinions and wealth of knowledge.

 

Definitely check out the new Ken Burns documentary, ‘Baseball: The Tenth Inning’. It premiers on PBS, September 28th and 29th.

Live from Happy Endings on Sunset Blvd., Greg Fitzsimmons sits in for Adam on this week’s Sunday Football Wrap-up. Greg professes right from the get-go he’s not a huge football fan, but Jimmy Kimmel’s friend Brad Mulcahey is sitting on the couch and much more into sports. They go through a brief recap of the day’s games, and Brad also talks about his history with gambling and relationship with Jimmy and Cousin Sal.

 

Brad mentions a few more highlights from the day, and Greg says he needs the athlete’s story to be bigger than the game for him to get into it. Greg then leads the conversation to Brad’s experience in Navy boot camp, and also spends some time discussing how they got involved in the Carolla crew. Brad also spends time talking about going to high school with magician David Blaine.

 

Musician Pete Yorn comes onto the show and talks with Greg about his new, eponymous album. Greg asks him about the inspirations behind the latest release, and also jokes that he once made love to Pete’s music. After a longer discussion about Pete’s relationship with his dad and his own personality, they listen to Pete’s latest single: Precious Stone.

 

Greg delves deeper into Pete’s story, talking about his relationship with his fiancé, and also more on his relationship with his father and brother. Pete takes it back to sports talk, bringing up his life-long fandom of the Raiders, and Greg goes on a jag about Judaism and religious context in films.

 

Pete describes his music as ‘pure rock n roll,’ and loves the new album’s stripped down sound. He talks about the instrumentation, and Greg also asks him about his set lists when playing live concerts. Lastly, Pete talks about trying to interact with fans through social networking websites, but mostly enjoys meeting people on the road.

 

Greg thanks Pete for his time and invites everyone to check out more info at the following websites:

Sep 24, 2010

Comedian extraordinaire Ralphie May is in studio, and talks with Adam about touring stand-up all over the country, up to four shows in a single night. They talk about the logistics of how comedy clubs make money, and also the difficulties of spreading your name around if you don’t do film and TV. Ralphie talks about his Comedy Central special, and also jumps back to the huge car accident that once left him in a drug-induced coma for nine days.

 

Adam wants to hear more about Ralphie’s journey, and finds out that Ralphie had done stand-up even as a kid. Ralphie talks about the comedians that inspired him, and Adam brings up the importance of repetition. As a kid, there weren’t a lot of other ways to stay entertained, so everyone would tape and re-watch their favorite bits. They say kids today won’t ever have to do that. Adam also talks about doing the long snap for his high school football team, and the difficulties of giving advice to Jimmy’s son who does the same thing.

 

Ralphie talks a bit more about how his brother kicked the shit out of him, and once again put him in the hospital. Adam finds out more details from Ralphie’s recovery, and learns about how he attended college and high school at the same time, all while performing stand-up. Ralphie tells an amazing story about winning an open mic night at Shakey’s Pizza, and getting a chance to open for his idol, Sam Kinison.

 

Adam and Ralphie talk about being radio geeks, and Ralphie says he loves Howard Stern. Finally, Adam asks Ralphie about his health now that he has kids, but Ralphie says he’s grateful to not have signs of high blood pressure or diabetes despite his weight. They wrap up the show talking about exercise, Pilates, his gastric bypass surgery, and Ralphie’s relationship with his wife.

Sep 23, 2010

Adam has just returned from a day on the set of Dancing with the Stars, and his legs are sore from the unicycle. Bald Bryan points out how the show changed the rules after he was voted off, and talks to Adam about performing his dance for the second time and then getting booted. Teresa also finds out more info about the contestants that Adam met, though Adam says mostly he didn’t care to see anyone and just had lunch with the crew.

 

Adam’s buddy Ray comes by to talk to Adam about another show on the ACE Broadcasting Network. Ray recently had a therapy session with Adam’s dad, and that podcast is now available for download. Adam says it’s a good peak behind the curtain if you were ever curious about what therapy is like. Adam also talks about doing his recent live show, and the experience of having his Dad in the audience.

 

The top news story involves a handicapped girl who was bullied on a school bus. Her dad went on the bus to defend his daughter, and in the process threatened both the bus driver and some of the other students. Teresa says that that Dad is her hero, and Adam talks about how Ray used to protect kids and beat up the bullies at his school. Everyone agrees that the parents need to be more responsible for their children.

 

From CBS’s The Big Bang Theory, Simon Helberg comes in and talks to Adam and Teresa about his own experiences dealing with bullies. They also talk about his love of the film The Karate Kid, and how he went from being a martial arts actor to a musician to just a regular actor. Adam also discusses with Simon about being on a #1 sitcom, and talks about Jim Parson’s Emmy, moving the show to Thursday nights, and expanding the show into a larger ensemble.

 

Adam also reads the letter that he wrote to Alec Baldwin after Alec wrote a very nice blurb for his book. Clearly Alec took his time, but when Adam wrote him back to say thanks, Alec misconstrued it for sarcasm. Adam then wrote a second email, but fears that now he was too curt. As he contemplates actually calling Alec to clear things up, Adam takes a number of listener calls for a round of Rich Man, Poor Man. 

 

Wrapping up the news, Teresa talks about Lindsay Lohan going back to jail, and a couple other celebrity rehab failures. They also talk about a wedding themed reality show where contestants compete to win plastic surgery before their weddings, and another reality show about a family of midgets who make chocolate. Adam asks ‘what have we become?’ and imagines what it would have been like to see Reality TV shows in the ‘60s or ‘70s.

Sep 22, 2010

Adam introduces Kinsey Schofield to the show, and talks to her about being a social media strategist. He then jumps right into a major complaint about harassment from police officers. More specifically, an officer who pulled a person over and blocked one lane of a two lane street. Donny comes in studio and adds more color to the rant, describing a bullshit parking ticket he got for street work outside his house that never got performed anyway.

 

Kinsey jumps into the news, talking about the latest developments in The Situation's career-- including his work on Dancing with the Stars, and his new work out video. She also brings up Jennifer Aniston's grievances about her lack of a career, and Adam rants about the pre-taped segments for Dancing with the Stars. Finally, Kinsey talks about Paris Hilton's recent detainment in Japan, and also mentions the rumor that she hides her drugs in a cigarette box up her vagina.

 

Steven Adler comes in the studio, and talks about his stint on Celebrity Rehab. He says that Dr. Drew basically saved his life, and was even there for him when he relapsed. He and Adam talk about the members of Guns N' Roses, and Adam wants to find out more about the journey of the band. Steven talks about making music since he was 17, and playing super small gigs at places like The Troubador and UCLA Frat parties. Adam asks him about a possible Guns N' Roses reunion, but Steven doesn't seem to think it would happen.

 

Kinsey asks a personal question about whether or not members of the band would bang the same girls, or if there were rules. Steven tells a very revealing story involving Steven Tyler that suggests there were very few rules when it came to that sort of thing. Adam also asks him about his favorite countries to visit while touring, bands they hung out with, and who he thinks are the greatest drummers of all time. They also listen to an awesome new single from Steven's new project, Adler's Appetite, entitled 'Alive.'

 

Back into the news, Steven is able to add first hand perspective to Lindsay Lohan's struggle with addiction. He talks about his drug-induced stroke at age 35, and warns that if Lindsay doesn't clean up her act, she may face the same fate. He also talks about the process of going through speech therapy, and how Dr. Drew really does have the power to save people's lives. Wrapping up the show, Adam talks to him more about going through rehab, and whether or not you can change your habits until you're ready.

Joining Adam and Cousin Sal this week is Mighty Mighty Bosstones frontman Dickie Barrett. Right off the bat, the mood is sour because all their teams lost their games for the day. Adam has to comfort Dickie on the Patriots performance, and compares being a fan for that team to raising your kid with a wacky religion—it should be considered abuse.

 

Everyone in the group discusses the new film, ‘The Town’. (NOTE: Light spoilers throughout this section of audio). Overall, Adam says he enjoyed the movie but that it sort of coasts towards the end. They also have an in-depth discussion about several of the actors’ performances, and wonder whether this movie puts Ben Affleck ahead of Matt Damon in terms of success.

 

Dickie cracks a joke about not needing to watch the football games closely in preparation for recording these episodes. Adam takes note and talks with Cousin Sal about the day’s games. They discuss their top three favorite teams, and offer commentary on major players like Ben Roethlisberger and Brett Favre. The conversation then steers towards Beanie Babies, and Adam teases Cousin Sal for his ‘serious investments.’

 

Adam welcomes 1,000 Ways To Die producer Thom Beers to the show, and talks to him about the premiere of the show’s 3rd season. Since Thom is directly involved with a number of successful shows on Spike TV and Discovery, he and Adam talk about the death of Captain Phil Harris on Deadliest Catch. Thom also talks about his own near death experiences, and goes into more details on how 1,000 Ways To Die is produced.

 

Adam and Thom then talk about some of the more ridiculous deaths that Thom has researched, and offers a couple teasers for the upcoming season. Thom loves the science of the show, and talks with Adam about everything from the death of Jack Daniel, to the horrifying pain of enduring the Candiru fish. To wrap up the show, Adam and Thom talk about working for Spike TV, and Adam tells an anecdote about interviewing an Ice Road Trucker with a filthy mouth.

Sep 17, 2010

Adam welcomes Toad the Wet Sprocket’s Glen Phillips to the show, and immediately compliments him on his musical talents. Adam says it takes more energy to like certain bands, but ultimately the songs are better and the arrangements are more interesting. Glen also talks about raising his family in Santa Barbara, then plays the first song of the hour.

 

Adam asks Glen about the origins of the band name, and they talk about other notable bands from Santa Barbara. They start chatting about the band Dishwalla, which Adam said helped inspire a project he and Jimmy were working on called ‘Kill Gallagher.’ Adam and Glen talk about the famous comedian, and Adam complains that when they tried to pitch it, the comedy execs said they had no idea who he was. Adam wanted to tell them to fuck off, but Jimmy wouldn’t let him.

 

They talk a bit more about the current status of the band, and more specifically how the band is now re-recording a bunch of the old singles so they can be licensed. They go into more depth about the financial realities of producing music, and both agree that the artists themselves used to be the last in line, but now the smart ones are cutting out the middle man and setting up their own shop. 

 

Glen asks Adam about his recent appearance on the Savage Love Podcast. Host Dan Savage was asking Adam about threesomes, and Glen says that Adam avoided the question. Adam just wanted to restate the point that if a woman is asking for a threesome, she is essentially saying the relationship is on its way out. There are obviously exceptions to every rule, but often times we need to rely on generalizations when we don’t understand something fully.

 

Glen plays a more recent song, which was inspired by a story he heard from fellow musician Ben Folds. Adam compliments them both on their smart lyrics, and ability to tell great stories about little slices of life. Keeping with the musician talk, Adam recalls his experience with the band Korn, and Glen talks about John Mayer staying with him before his career really took off. Adam tries to decide if Mayer is really a douche or not, but Glen says he was fine during the time he knew him. Wrapping things up, Glen plays one final song, per Adam’s request.

Adam welcomes Taylor Morgan back to the show to fill in for Teresa and the news. During her last visit, Adam complained about the difficulties of having to pee while on stage, so Taylor has come prepared with a gift: a travel john. Essentially a rubber bag you can pee in, Adam thoroughly enjoys the gift, and talks about the various times he would need it.

 

Taylor jumps into the news, opening with the 33 miners still trapped in Chile. Taylor reports that they are now for the first time getting power and cigarettes, even though they anticipate to be stuck down there through December. Adam also suggests the miners have  smelled like ass from day one, and says they'll probably want to return to the cave once they're out. Other news stories revolve around a mother in England banned from going online, Reggie Bush forfeiting his Heisman trophy, and Chelsea Handler's upcoming sex tape.

 

Adam then takes a series of listener phone calls about a variety of topics.

Another caller asks Adam about his thoughts on the generation that followed his, and a final caller asks Adam about Howard Stern and the Sirius situation.

Adam asks her about her freelance experience on The Daily Show, and she talks about her Emmy-winning boyfriend and the table they want to make from his awards. Adam also complains about having to read his audio book, and tries to convince Kristen to read a chapter for him.

 

In the last part of the news, George Michael was recently sentenced to 8 weeks in jail. Adam and Kristen talk about wealthy people's ability to quickly generate money, and also wonder how musicians stay inspired to write good material. Another news story involves the natural gas line that exploded, and Bald Bryan shares a picture which shows the explosion which was right near his uncle's house. The final news stories revolve around the new American Idol judges, and the controversy surrounding legalizing pot. Adam ends the show with a new TV show pitch, where he goes around to all his old bosses and tells them to fuck off.

Adam is back from being on the road with Mike August and Donny. They traveled to Sacremento, Seattle, and Portland, and Adam says everything’s better than here in Los Angeles. He praises the other cities for their light rail systems, and quickly turns his eye back to complaining about dirty airports and their terrible security policies. He also complains about the trendy hotel they stayed in while in Portland, and Donny speaks up to second how terrible the service was.

 

Larry Miller is brought in just as the news begins. He has a quick story about Adam’s wife, and Adam talks about hot chicks and body movements. Teresa then discusses the recent VMAs, and both she and Adam criticize Chelsea Handler for a lackluster performance. They watch the sketch she filmed with Lindsay Lohan, and agree that she didn’t do a great job either. Larry is largely out of touch with the people involved in the show, but he does get a laugh out of seeing Chelsea’s ass slapped so many times. Teresa also mentions Oprah’s first episode of her last year, and Adam prepares for non-stop Oprah watch.

 

David Alan Grier comes in studio, and teases Teresa about not being able to do the show as long as she’s in the room. He and Adam talk about DAGs performance in Race, and DAG gives Teresa crap for not seeing it. Adam also recalls hanging out in at a secret bar with DAG after the show, and DAG talks about his dating life. Everyone gets to talking about book blurbs, and Adam conveys a story about his miscommunication with Alec Baldwin. Teresa also talks about getting a blurb from Dr. Drew, but DAG says there is still tension between them.

 

Larry Miller compliments DAG on one of the ‘great comedy snores.’ Larry reminisces about the first time he cracked him up in person, and DAG also comments on the Chelsea’s performance at the VMAs. DAG defends that she was great, and says that ‘nothing breeds contempt like success.’ Adam then tells the controversial story of when he went to see Race, and DAG talks about acting on Law and Order. Later, both Adam and DAG talk about their families, and the pleasures of raising a daughter.

 

In the final segment of the show, Larry Miller plays a round of hypothetical road trips, sponsored by Jeremiah Weed. DAG at first offers to cover his face so as not to distract Larry, but ultimately comes in to try a round for himself.

Sep 13, 2010

Every Monday, enjoy shows recorded live at The Happy Ending Bar on Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood. This week, Cousin Sal, Dave Dameshek, and Kevin Hench are seated with Adam, getting their drink on and enjoying the day’s games. Adam says he’s going to be drunk at three different times today, and talks about abandoning The Rams for good this season.

 

After a brief discussion of Christmas lights, Adam talks about the first time he met Cousin Sal. Sal is a ‘degenerate gambler’ and talks about some of the bets he’s placed this season. The guy also discuss Sal’s love of the Dallas Cowboys even though he’s from New York, and Sal says his dad once brought home a Cowboys jacket from a business trip. Adam then goes on a side story about cleaning carpets.

 

Dameshek goes into more depth about the origins of the football gatherings. He talks about meeting with Sal and Hench, and soon after Jimmy Kimmel would watch. At last Adam would come by, but Dameshek and Hench insist that Adam didn’t say a word to them for the entire season.

 

Since Hench has been drinking since 10am, they get on the topic of DUIs and the pleasures of getting shitfaced. Adam suggests that sobriety tests should be performed in your vehicle and not on foot. The guys pause the show to watch the Rams attempt and blow a hail mary, which doesn’t surprise Adam in the least. Then they tease Hench a bit more for being dropped off by his mom, and wonder how he’s going to get home.

 

Throughout the show, Adam attempts to tell a story about cleaning carpets at the Russian Tea Room at the Beverly Center, but almost always gets side tracked. At this point in the show, he talks about several stories with his buddies Ray and Chris and how they used to literally wipe their shit on him when they got the chance. Cousin Sal has a weird shit story as well, and talks about taking a dump in a Frito’s bag. 

 

Adam gives advice on hitting on strippers, and Dameshek complains about the most overused porn stories. Adam tells more stories about working with Ray and Chris; more specifically, the times that Chris tried to steal food at work and Ray tried to pee everywhere. Wrapping the episode up, Hench talks about being high on coke at graduation, and everyone agrees you don’t really need to get a diploma to be successful.

After an ad for the new It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia soundtrack, Adam welcomes Suzy McCoppin to the studio. She talks about growing up in Detroit, studying drama at NYU, and now writing columns for Playboy magazine. She says she’s a big fan of the podcast, and compliments Adam on the show’s nuances. Donny also pops in with news of a month-long Stitcher contest where the winners will be flown to LA to watch a recording of the podcast.

 

In the news, a Japanese scientist has discovered a sound that could increase breast size when listened to. Also in the world of unusual science, there is now a new procedure to take the sugar from diabetic pee and turn it into whiskey. They also discuss new Chinese park benches equipped with a timer and spikes to limit seating time, and a guy who had an eel slide up his ass when he fell into a tank. Adam also asks Suzy for advice on dealing with his daughter.

 

Dave Dameshek comes in studio, and talks about his new gig working for NFL.com’s weekly Fantasy Football discussion. Dave also teases the upcoming series of podcasts where Adam and the gang will be watching football games at Happy Endings on Sunset, and anyone in the public is welcome to join. Adam mentions that Jimmy Kimmel was tired of hosting at his house, and they also tease Dawson for being banned after correcting Jimmy about making a proper calzone.

 

Next, Gaywalking is brought back to the podcast. We ask straight questions to gay guys, and everyone in the studio votes on whether or not they will know the correct answer. It’s a close match all the way through, and partway through the game they go on a long tangent about people who smell bad, and the cultural differences between what we consider to smell good.

 

Adam and Dave start talking about athletes with very odd names, and Adam compares it to vanity license plates on cars. Just like there are limits to what you put on your car, shouldn’t we also limit what you can name your child? Keeping with the sports talk, Adam talks about the relationship between booze & cigarettes and sports & society. He praises the power of booze and suggests there are many important things we would never have if people didn’t get shit-faced. Finally, the group discusses sports announcers and commercials that try to be funny, and also a series of boxing nicknames.

 

Catch Dr. Funny Dave Dameshek on the Daves of Thunder podcast, right here on the ACE Network. He can also be seen on NFL.com’s Live Fantasy Football shows, every Sunday morning.

Teresa’s back with the news for the day, and can’t wait to swear publicly again. She talks about her new job working AM radio, and Adam dissects the difference between AM and FM listeners. Adam also complains about the DVR status bar when he’s trying to watch Inglorious Basterds or sports, but Bald Bryan gives him some helpful advice.

 

Subtly transitioning into the news, Teresa brings up the story of a drunk guy who pulled a knife on the cops and ended up getting shot. The question remains whether or not the officers used excessive force, but Teresa points out they were bicycle cops without tasers or pepper spray. Based on another cop story, Adam pitches a new hit TV series for Avi to star in, and later Teresa brings up Florida Pastor Terry Jones and his Koran burning. Teresa and Adam also discuss the latest ESPN 30 for 30: One Night in Vegas, Tyson and Tupac.

 

Illeana Douglas comes in studio, and jokes about playing spin the bottle in Adam’s basement. She and Adam discuss how their last names have screwed up their ethnic reputations, and Illeana also mentions a publicity stunt involving Feng shui. Adam transitions the conversation to Illeana’s work in Scorcece’s ‘Cape Fear’, and they talk about a bunch of the director’s other movies, along with other Illeana’s experiences working on set. Illeana also mentions that she’ll be on Entourage this Sunday, and had a great time filming.

 

Adam asks Illeana about her new webseries, ‘Easy to Assemble.’ Adam auditions for a guest appearance, and he and Illeana figure out what his role would be. They also talk about the ensemble cast of the series, and Illeana mentions how she auditioned for the role of Adam’s wife on his sitcom. Adam talks about being uncomfortable during the entire audition process, and mentions the emotional breakdown he watched Rosanna Arquette experience first hand.

 

Back into the news, Joel McHale is going to be in Spy Kids 4. They talk about how great Joel’s career is doing these days, and Adam compares it to his own career, saying he’s forced to do stand up now because he doesn’t have a regular job. Teresa closes with a happy story out of Florida where a woman got fired from her job, then married to the same man one year later. Adam goes on a rant about mass rebellion against the things we don’t like, and ends the show joking about the Piña Colada song, sung by Rupert Holmes.
