Adam opens the show to a UFO reference from yesterday, Adam thanks everyone for tuning in and BB plays the “Quit the Team Faggot” from a couple weeks back as today’s #TopDrop.

Adam is bringing up his kids desire to be read to, he comments on how universal it is for all children, almost ubiquitous among all cultures and they reason it may have been an oral tradition before the written word.

Matt Atchity joins the show, Adam is telling them about ‘Diary of a wimpy Kid’ and how he was able to assemble most of the plot and narrative just by passing their room in the hallway and overhearing snippets.


Adam is now taking this back to his CBS sitcom in 2009, he brings up the kid they cast from Montreal and replaced him with the kid who went onto star in the ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ movies based on the books his kids are into.

Adam is describing how the kid gets comedy and was their #1 pick, they were told they had to bring the studio choices otherwise they would get pissed off, Adam brings up Kevin Hench and his concern about bringing in the 2nd kid they didn’t want for the series.

Adam is now mocking the pompous executives.


BB is now joking about his tumor after Adam brought up how he never saw their true #1 pick for Adam’s son, the wimpy kid, kid.

Adam explains that Natalia like to sleep in Sonny’s room with his bunk bed setup, Adam says he walked in and saw Sonny splayed out on the bean bag chair playing video games on his tablet while Natalia was on the top bunk also playing games on her iPad.

Adam stopped and told them to show mom some respect and put their games down, Adam shares the details of Sonny’s perfectly timed fart, and Alison’s reaction is gold.

Adam asks Adrian Peterson to pay his house a visit and to bring a car antenna.


BB makes Adam admit the fart was hilarious, Adam is describing Lynette getting on board and threatening to put everyone to bed.

“Can I tell you know how excited I’d be if a giant walked into my room and went lights out, go to bed!” – Adam on being told to go to sleep and how as an adult he desires that more than anything, while his kids are the exact opposite.

Adam brings up Mike August and his young child who has been whaling in the background of some of their recent calls, Adam says Mike is wired like an Iguana able to tune out anything.


Adam is describing the scene where he was talking to Mike and how he said last night in jest “Are you in the crib with your daughter” he replied matter of fact that he wasn’t.

Adam is bringing up sound blimps, the boxes designed to quiet down cameras, Adam is now inventing sound blimps for crying babies.

Adam has a killer “rat with aids” mention, BB is now riffing with him about it and Adam regrets ever brining rodentia into the mix.


Adam just invented the M.R.CRY device, Matt steps in and Dr. Drew’s him with “Mr. Cry” the obvious alternate pronunciation of his creation, better patent this one fast Adam.

Next thing you know Matt will have a podcast all about this device, Adam is riffing about children not having memories from their infancy.

Alison is explaining Adam’s point about everyone suffering in addition to the baby who is going through its crying fit.

Hooray for Baldywood

BB saw ‘Interstellar’  he explains the premise and the dusty future, Adam mocks that dystopian aesthetic and the seeming only two options for a post apocalypse dust bowl or a utopia with a price, the man, chips, swear words debits and councils deciding on troublemakers.

Adam is now saying that the utopia is even worse the dustbowl due to its strict regulations.


Matt is now giving his take on the movie, he’s sharing the parts he enjoyed and BB cites the corn crop element of the plot.


Adam asks about the year, they both don’t seem to know it.

Adam is commenting on the nearly 3 hour running time, Matt is weighing in too with his mixed feelings.

BB and Matt agree this needs to be seen on the big screen, Adam is now bringing up his math on the wasted 82minutes at 800k per minute of movie, Adam is commenting on the potential screenings you miss out on for a longer running time that cost more to make, that only results in people telling you “it was way too long dude.”


Matt and BB both agree it didn’t feel too long, Adam is now asking them, he says it’s pretty insane that could be that long and not feel long, he cuts them off and says that almost must make it a good movie, does it not.

Matt explains it could’ve been a movie that lasts the next 3 generations, Adam riffs about the two possible futures again for a brief moment.

BB shares his take on the movie that perfectly echoes Matt’s, Alison asks what makes it feel like they’re swinging for the fences with this project.

Adam and BB are doing a Draft Kings live read.

BB is the new “cover of Madden” and has cursed all of the players on his season long football team.


Adam is now commenting on a caller who dropped off, she wanted to know Adam’s take on leaving his kids in the car while he runs into the liquor store.

Adam is now ranting about people living their lives according to their emotions, Adam is now using statistics and putting aside emotion, he uses the driving vs. flying stats.


Adam is now joking about drinking in the day and Matt asks if the kids are car theft deterrent, Adam clarifies the type of drive up corner store he was at.

Adam is now suggesting the possible stats for the danger of taking them out of the car for that same period of time at that same liquor store.

Adam tells her not to be too pissed off and totally defuses her, he asks what she was buying.

Adam is telling the gang about taking his kids out to Barbecue for dinner over the weekend, Adam says the BB joint has 26 non BBQ items so if you’re not into that cuisine you can order the other options while the person who wants ribs, enjoys said ribs.

Adam is telling the gang about his kid’s dinner order over the weekend and cites his dad taking him to Sizzler for his graduation.


Adam is now riffing about the new double deuce ‘M.R.CRY’ or ‘Mr. Cry’ device, stacked for two infants and telling BB and the gang about dunking his fries into chili, he says the chili fry is wildly underrated and argues that nachos are ordered 26 to 1 over chili fries.

“If they’re round, they’re not tortilla chips” – Adam responding to a picture of shitty chips and nacho cheese chemical sauce.

Adam says they melt down traffic cones and make it into the liquid queso used for fake nachos.

Adam brings up “Fucking Caelan” and BB suggests we now add fucking to his name, Adam is telling them about Caelan’s sandwich, he removed his Swiss (parmesan) cheese, Adam corrects him and explains the cheese texture and 64th of an inch thickness.

Adam tells them about eating the whole cheese slice to his head man, Adam is now yelling “you remove cheese from the sandwich?” at Caelan, This like Mike Cioffi’s sourdough bread mistake from the KLSX days.


Adam is now ranting against the dodger stadium nachos, paying a premium for liquid cheese sauce, the attendees are adults, not children.

Adam is now riffing about this fictional Simi Valley day camp’s discounted lunch program, holy shit this is complex.

2nd Movie Liar Liar (1997)

Adam and BB have a back and forth about the gimmick of the movie, BB reacts hugely to the 81% critics score and Adam brings up the way the audience score is lower than the top critics.
