Production Number #1181
Adam is opening the show with a tease for the two guest extravaganza, BB is ordering his hello to be delivered and has a prideful display of this wonderful yet spoiled #TopDrop.
Adam is sharing how his eye stye finally exploded and Alison is encouraging more details despite her “might vomit” voice.
Adam is explaining how excited he is to speak with Art from Everclear, he’s sharing how these songs are meaningful to him as they were playing while he was holding before a Kevin and Bean KROQ phoner bit.
Adam is sharing some very rare details of these early phone calls into Kevin and Bean and I can totally relate to his nerves.
Adam is bringing up his old bit “Dingo Boy” and he’s sharing how he doesn’t think he ever brought it up on the podcast, Adam is telling the gang how Lynette observed how cheap Disney was and Adam was actually approached by them for an animated series idea.
Adam is now sharing the GIO-esque way Jimmy Kimmel used to cut tape and prepare these Dingo Boy bits, Adam is explaining the origins of the bit.
During our drive here in IL, I actually brought up the bit and told Adam how much I love the theme song and observed how similar it was to some classic animated series from a bygone era.
Earlier today I was contacted by a fan (1780’s Guy) looking for a list of the 1780’s guy bits and the Dingo Boy mp3’s, the two very topics I brought up to Adam last week.
So I sent the studio all the clips, two Dingo Boys Clips including the version that was just played with inferior sound quality were found by another fan (Laxdude) online and the best version “A Dingo Boy Christmas” with better sound I strongly suggested they play for just the theme, minus the Bob Lassiter syndication intros, perhaps the Flac format tripped them up, should’ve sent an mp3 too!
BB just mocked the short theme for being “too windy” and I’m debating the odds they play the other crappy audio version of the theme or if they play the good one, C’mon play the HQ one! PLEASE!
Adam is further explaining the premise and Alison is giving him her funny feedback.
Adam is now going very in depth on the 1940’s style offer Disney proposed for the rights to “Dingo Boy” the deal was so out of line it confused James Babydoll Dixon and Adam turned down the offer that paid less than MTV Loveline almost 20 years ago.
Alison is getting him to elaborate on the timeline, he’s saying it was from 3-4 years ago.
BB is saying he’s not familiar with Dingo Boy and wants further elaboration on the premise, once again.
Now Adam is ordering Gary to play the longer theme song version they don’t possess as it doesn’t exist online to all of your knowledge.
Adam is riffing about his “Blood and Semen” salad dressing and has a great reaction from Alison, Adam is now setting up one of the episodes “Dingo Boy meets Siegfried and Roy”.
Adam is giving some live commentary and really weaving something interesting out of this.
Adam is now saying someone needs to listen to these things in advance, this irony is painful.
Adam is telling Alison that Ralph Garman and Jimmy Kimmel were both involved and he’s asking if he said that up top, he did say that before the clip began.
Everyone is now gaslighting Adam, and BB is blowing it off in lieu of listening to the tape from the show that just got recorded.
Adam is now blaming himself for rushing this to air and mentions that he reached out to me to obtain them, true.
Adam is now revealing there are possibly 20 episodes, we know of about a baker’s dozen.
Adam is explaining how difficult these were to “build” in the analog 90’s and citing it as another example of why Jimmy is where he is today.
Adam is now rolling into a Blinds Galore live read.
Adam is bringing up the vanity plate he spotted upon entering the studio, he was inquiring about the vain Lexus owner and Alison is now reading the photo of the plate.
Adam is joking about the “torch the place” response and is joking about the kooky guests of Drew’s show who may or may not have had a hand in framing Sonny for “Sonnygate 2013”.
Matt was borrowing his parent’s car, just like when he was borrowing his pops shoes, Adam has eagle eyes and is now setting up the warning Matt gave him about his mom’s vanity plate.
Adam is sharing how shocked he was about Jimmy getting Easter cards from his mother and his attorney who was vacation with his mom, the long referenced story is now able to be attributed to his attorney, interesting.
Adam is now having Matt get on mic to confirm what his mom’s vanity plate says.
They’re now riffing about Matt Fondiler “The Generic Pile of Shit” instead of the more unpleasant self-entitled piles of shit typical of such loving parents.
Adam is asking the gang if they would have noticed the frame much like he did, Gary is now on mic stating how he instructed Matt to swap it out with a spare dealer plate, Gary is revealing why he keeps multiples and how Kevin Hench got burned for his yellowing.
Adam is now explaining how he drove around with the McKenna AUDI plate for 4 years the duration of the entire lease, BB is on his 2nd year with one as well.
Adam is calling it a subtle FU to the man and it results in you getting pulled over 40% less of the time, Adam is explaining how Kevin Hench was busted with a faded plate.
Adam is now telling the fans how to go do this and BB is making it racial calling it the white man’s version of the sticker/tag on the hat, and Adam is clarifying the Minnie Pearl Origins
Q and Ace
1st Caller Giovanni from Florida he is probably the same Giovanni from ACS #89/ACP #421 from 2010, he wants to know about “Super High Me” the story of how Adam allegedly stole Sarah Silverman’s Volcano brand vaporizer.
There seems to be an audible noise from someone when the name is read by Adam, probably thinking it was the superior Giovanni, but alas their hopes were dashed.
She came to Adam’s house with her vaporizer in tow, much like the 2004 Marilyn Manson on Loveline with Absinthe story.
Adam is now telling both stories and explaining how they share similarities and speak of the person giving the “gifts”, Adam is giving the all-time most detailed version of the vaporizer story.

Noel is now joining the show for his first visit and I was actually in studio with former employees the first time his company was brought up as a potential sponsor for the podcast in 2011.
Noel is now on the podcast after appearing on the KLSX ACS on January 6th 2009, Noel claims 2007 but I don’t quite recall that and there are no known notes regarding it, so it’s possible but he did for sure show up in 2009 and I’m betting he was off on his math.
Adam is now having Noel explain his companies and how they’ve grown into such splintered products and branched into other markets as well, Adam is quizzing him about his marital status.

Art is now giving some examples of how it’s now appropriate and commenting on his daughter’s feisty attitude.
Adam is now getting into Art’s childhood adversity and he’s asking if Art could refresh it for the new people in the audience who don’t remember the story.
Art is now giving his journey, Adam is now riffing as Art’s non-monogamous Greek father, and this is gold!
They’re discussing the nature of infidelity and Adam is on a “cock negligence” riff that everyone seems to appreciate and Alison’s reaction is the best as per usual.
