The Spitvalve Podcast LXXII – T-U-R-T-L-E Hour

Play

Cyber Monday is still a thing, right? Or do we not move Christmasward with our Black Friday encroachments?

Speaking of Black Friday, did you know that it is called Black Friday because it’s terrible? Don’t by into the big business spin that it puts them “in the black.”  Just remember that every time you see a major corporation use the term Black Friday, they are admitting they are terrible. Laugh along with me.

Oh! Also! The episode this week is a very special one. Watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie with us! Get it cued up to the start of the New Line Cinemas logo and we will tell you when to hit play. Hopefully your VHS copy isn’t so warped that it throws our laser-accurate timing off. It’s currently streaming on Netflix, and I bet you can get a DVD copy for pretty cheap.

Every podcast that posts a show today is going to say something about using it to escape from your family, and now that I’ve mentioned it it’s too late for me not to say the same thing. But this episode is a nice intimate family affair, with Wharff & Damon cozying up for a two hander. Wharff’s ruggedness really shines through, but I must warn you, there are spoilers for the current elk season.

Lady energy on this week’s episode. As Wharff is off being quite rugged, Damon invites show favourite, and fellow indoor kid, Liz down to talk real talk. Liz was kind and persuasive enough to bring her friend Jamie to round out the line up. Jamie was delightful, if a little mic-shy. But it was her first time, give it up for her.

Maybe one of the principle members of this show had a weird thing in his throat for a couple weeks and caused us to burn through our small buffer of shows. Maybe he recorded a mini episode to throw up this week, but then hated it and destroyed it and recorded a new one. Maybe he got caught up in the spirit of the season. Hopefully you’re able to get down with it, and we’ll be back to the regular power pack next week.

What would we do without Bethteva James? Once again we are indebted to him and his lustful baritone, as he swings in to join us for the first episode in the all-new Goathead Studios. Not only that, but he’s the first guest to speak into our all new microphones, so you really get to experience that aforementioned lustful baritone. I think our next goal, technologically, is going to be having everybody’s microphone feed into separate episodes to be played at once on different stereos, Zaireeka-style. We discuss the character map, give some handy tips for summons Apple daemons (or iDaemons), and get all weepy.

Seriously, we’re not joking. You’ll want to stick around for all of it too, as we are replete with nuggets of wisdom to share, like how you should compliment girls for smelling good. Serious, we could be charging for this stuff.

I was actually just thinking about the phrase “Tweet us your thesis” (*See Episode LI, True Believer!), and how it’s simultaneously satisfying and frustrating. I think the word hiatus is very much the same sort of sound collection. High ate us. Hee yat oos. Hiya!tus. It’s so nebulous. Ooooh! Nebulous is a good one. Why am I rambling about these words, lovely though they be? It’s because this episode was recorded months ago, and I didn’t really remember what was going on in it. But now I’m warmed up enough that I can tell you it’s a good one. James is our special guest, and Dave (imagine that, True Believers!) returns as cohost! So not only is this episode refreshing in that it’s our first post since my birthday, but it’s also Dave’s first appearance since Episode XXXII. Please forgive us if our references are somewhat dated, and if we complain about how hot it is. And please enjoy.

Alright everybody, remember that longest episode record we set a while back? Get ready for us to shatter it. Damon’s high school friend Sophie drops in to drop some mad truth on y’all about everything you could ever want to know in life, including how to get Dr. Who tattoos that are cool enough to make you legit, but not too obvious to tip your hand. If you notice that everyone is chatty and happy, know this: Damon installed a window air conditioner just moments prior to recording. That’s the magic of coolness everyone. Respect it. There is some good stuff here, and I’m not just saying that. The only disappointing thing is Wharff drops his best joke in the first quarter of the show, and just can never quite hit that stride again.

Howdy folks! Join us in a big, welcoming round of applause for Damon’s pizza friend – Jorden! That is to say, he’s not a friend made of pizza (which would be both wondrous and strange), but a friend Damon made while delivering pizza! Little do you know, while you’re just phoning and on-lining your orders for a thin crust, extra sauce, pepperoni and mushroom pizza, there is a wild, lush ecosystem of people putting in the work to deliver you that pie. And sometimes – just sometimes – a friendship can blossom right out of the greasy cardboard! This week laughs are had, tears are shed, and we all suffer from varying levels of heat-induced lethargy. Basically, it’s every family reunion you’ve ever been to.
