Adam is saying that the notes only improve the content of the screenplay and he’s citing how an editor thought up a superior tag for the ending of the film.

What Can’t Adam Complain About

1st Caller Charles, he wants Adam to complain about me, Superfan Giovanni.

BB thinks this is the only time it’s come up, he’s right for in studio tapings but it has come up at live shows, the most memorable was here in Chicago at the Park West in 2010 where Adam joked “He knows so much I expect him to know everything, but then I’ll hit him with a what’s my wife’s pussy smell like, Ha! He doesn’t know that one!”

Adam says it’s tough because I do so much, he’s now going to focus on the drive back to their hotel in Rosemont that had a 10min delay due to Chicago road construction, our only option was to backtrack.


BB is now bringing up the merchandise for Chicago, BB is mistaking what happened and somehow I am getting roped into the blame for the merch not following them to the next city, this is the first I’m aware it was such an issue, odd.

I actually sent the merch to Vegas so they didn’t have to lug it around the airport, they were convinced they would get stranded at the airport, after not listening to me tell them they wouldn’t, I didn’t want them to be stuck with a large box in another city, plus they didn’t have any crew to sell Merch, so as I understood it I would ship it onward, that’s the mix-up between me and several others.

Adam is now on a protracted “Steve did you pack the can opener” riff/tangent and I’ve been thrown under the bus, nice.

Adam says I heap too much praise on him and that feels bad, thanks a lot Charles …


Adam is now bringing up the “Stray pups” I bring along, I brought my ex-girlfriend twice and Dune came along once, Dune ended up providing the tech for us to hear “The Floaters”, so no stray puppy means no floaters bits on the show nor the creation of “Bung Lu Su” in response to the Floaters track once Adam returned home.

Alison, Adam and BB all have some very nice things to say, so as far as WCACA’s go this is the best one could hope for when targeting an individual, thanks gang, thanks Charles!

I’ll always have hot coffees, waters for you guys, cookies for August and if I can swing it in time an “anti-scurvy” bag of fruit.


2nd Caller Nick, He doesn’t think Adam can complain about his car collection.

Adam is now saying that the happiest people on the planet have the one car that they love and cherish, it’s their baby.

Adam is citing Leno’s massive collection and how they seem to be more like items you own as opposed to “your baby” your prized possession.

Adam says that Jay Leno loves cars, but happier people love CAR, Adam is now using cats for his analogy and he’s explaining how it works, Alison is making a follow up to Adam’s Self Satisfied Sniff.


3rd Caller Trey the III, Adam predicts he must be a “The 3rd” and like usually nobody even reacts, Adam is telling him about walking through south Philly with Mike August, Trey says it’s improving despite the constant presence of trash everywhere except Chinatown.

Adam is now making a contrast of the litter vs. lack of litter, he says the trip made him feel bad for his dad for a minute until he thought better of it and let it pass.

Trey wants them to complain about “Freedom” and Adam predicts there was a professional team called the Freedom and he tells them about his uncle Ralph who was the official photographer for the state of Philadelphia.


Adam is now ranting against things that fall under the heading of freedom that are actually obnoxious and effect/bother those around you, such as putting your feet up on someone else’s chair.

Adam is now making a point about the personal freedoms he enjoys shrinking while the ones that allow you to act like an asshole with your freak flag flying everywhere you go expanding.

Adam says it should be the opposite and he’s now wrapping up the bit with a live read, they play the wrong closer and Alison has a funny reaction, Adam is going in depth on Tire Rack and jokes that he was blowing Chris Maxipada in the parking lot in reply to BB.


Alison is bringing up her different sized tires in the front and the back, she says the car manual stated that the tires were different sized.

Adam is having Gary investigate in the parking lot, too much hot tire talk.


Adam is returning from break with Marni and Kirsten making their ACS debut.

Gary is now mic with the tire sizes for everyone’s car, Adam says that BB has a better rim than Alison who has a BMW, Adam is calling Gary a bastard for only checking the tires last time.

Adam is introducing the girls with a funny “Ask momma” Freudian slip and he’s asking Marnie about being pregnant, she’s lamenting Dr. Drew’s doom and gloom about fertility.

She’s telling them about the name Noah and they’re joking about the movie, Adam is giving out their plugs.


Adam is now asking for do’s and don’ts, they say to jump in for rejection and ask for what you want, Adam wants to know about going for what you don’t want, he’s citing women who date abusive men.

They’re now telling Adam about Chris Gore and his perpetual girlfriend of the same type, they’re now giving advice on conversations with women, they say women need to feel you, you need to present a leader to the women, what?

Adam is now asking them about “Mystery” and they’re joking about pick up artists, one of the gals is sharing her experience flirting with Mystery and she’s saying he has a nice charisma and it’s almost a routine, Kristen (I think) is now saying she would never fall for it.


They’re explaining how the pick-up artists use manipulation via linguistics to trap women, Adam is asking for the “Don’ts” and they say avoid the friend zone, Alison is sharing her theory on it not existing.

Adam is bringing up the women who perpetually keep a man/satellite orbiting around them showering them with attention, Adam says he doesn’t think men have that same wiring.

Adam is now bringing up the women who go for this, Marni seems perplexed that Adam wouldn’t want that same type of relationship and attention, Adam is explaining why it makes him feel uncomfortable.


Marni is sharing how she would sample different guy friends to see if she could be intimate with them and she’s now commenting on men who settle for friend zone when they truly want to be with the other person.

Adam and is now bringing up the “guy in the bullpen” theory from Classic Loveline, he’s explaining how quickly women can move on to another partner they have someone new on deck.

Adam is saying it’s the opposite of men, who want a fuck fest between relationships, Marni is sharing her insights into men and she saying that she respects Adam’s knowledge of women.

Adam says he’s good with humans and human behavior, women sometimes fall under that heading.
