Calling DL Snell on The Funky Werepig

Posted in Events, Skullvines Press with tags , , , , , , , on February 9, 2010 by Jerrod Balzer

A few weekends ago, S.D. Hintz, Mark McLaughlin and I were back at my house from Visioncon, and we decided to call in to the Funky Werepig and mess with them. D.L. Snell happened to be the guest that night and he was a great sport! S.D. made the call into a YouTube video using pictures from Visioncon:

So I’m listening to The Funky Werepig and decide to call in to ask Michael Knost about licorice panties.  Innocent enough, right?

Well, as luck would have it, I had to piss shortly after getting through, but they hadn’t clicked me in yet and I wasn’t even sure when they’d start taking callers, so I figured there was plenty of time.  I’ve got the phone to my ear, enjoying the show while relieving myself, when suddenly Michael says, “Are you peeing?”

He’d clicked me in and I didn’t know it!  Oops.

Well, then I was laughing so hard but trying not to burst out, so tears are streaming down my face instead.  Finally, I admitted it was me and joked along.  I felt a little bad because I didn’t want to ruin Michael’s interview, but then again, Michael is cool as hell, thinking it was hilarious, too (he’s even giving me a book for it!).  And Greg knows me – he was on Metal Crypt last Wednesday talking about having sex with Amish women.

As funny as it was, I wouldn’t dream of just calling shows up and pissing on them.  But as it worked out, I’m glad they got a kick out of it.

And maybe they could start a new contest each week: fifth pisser wins a book!

Later, as I’m sitting in a room by myself so as not to disturb the show while on the phone with them, the dogs run in and start wrestling, making all kinds of noise. Robin comes in and tells the dogs, “Stop it!” because she knows what’s up. While I’m rushing off to another quiet room, Greg goes, “What do you have your dick in now?”

LMAO!  Needless to say, I had a great time on the show, and I was actually trying to behave!  Then again, sometimes that’s when the craziest shit happens.

Okay, here’s where you can listen to the archive of it: DOWNLOAD IT!

And while I highly recommend listening to the entire interview, the bathroom break is 48:50 in.

Because I can’t stop laughing:

Finally! The State on DVD today!

Posted in Cool stuff with tags , , , on July 14, 2009 by Jerrod Balzer

Yes!  Before there was Reno 911, there was The State on MTV, starring much of the Reno 911 cast as well as the upcoming Michael & Michael on Comedy Central.

It was one of my favorite shows during the 90s.  It’s got some of the most memorable skits, like the Inbred Brothers, $240 worth of pudding, Doug, topless Martha Stewart show, the sideways house, and the one with the Rosemary (you’ll see).  I could go on…

I’ve heard there were some issues with the music so there will be some re-dubbing, but I don’t care.  The show is finally available!  Woohoo!

And… I’m too broke to get it .  I’m just thrilled that it’s at least out there now 🙂

Missouri Sheriff

Posted in Cool stuff with tags , , , , , on April 8, 2009 by Jerrod Balzer

The following joke tickled me:

A sheriff stops at a ranch in rural MO and says to the farmer, “I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown plants.”

“Okay,” the old farmer said, “but don’t go in that field over there.”

The sheriff begins to fume. “Mister, I have the authority of the Sheriff’s Department with me.” He pulls a badge from his pants pocket and proudly displays it. “See this badge? This gives me the power to go wherever I wish… on any land. No questions asked or answers given. Have I made myself clear? Do you understand?’

The farmer nods politely and goes about his chores. He later hears loud screams and spies the sheriff running for his life. Close behind him is the farmer’s bull. With each step, the bull is gaining ground and the officer is clearly terrified.

The old farmer immediately throws down his tools, runs to the fence, and yells at the top of his lungs, “Your badge! Show him your badge, smartass!”
