Today another legend in geek culture passes.
Stan Lee, born Stanley Martin Leiber, passed away today at the age of 95. There are going to be volumes and volumes written about Stan Lee; they will range from the glowing fantastical to the brutally honest and everywhere in between. But, for a shining moment, Spankwagon got to spend time, talking, listening, and frankly, completely geeking out and regressing into dawdling fanboys, with Stan Lee. Thankfully we recorded our time and we want to revisit and share with you that brief moment from 2007.
This week Decaf, Scuba Steve, and I (Murphy) discuss the effects of gangsta rap on black communities. We learn how much I (Murphy, Again) hate A-Rod. We also wonder if Kanye West should be allowed out of his house without adult supervision.
This week we start of with yet another letter from HR. I get shamed for not updating the Podcast as quickly as I should. We all talk sports! Oh, and Decaf delivers another solid lightning round!
BTW, what is up with all this SportBall talk anyway?
Who are we, Coach B?
WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! THIS PODCAST IS HERE TO SAVE YOU! THAT IS THE WARNING! SIT BACK AND BE SAVED BY SPANKWAGON RADIO ON YOUR 5G NETWORKS WHILE YOU PONDER THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE ON YOUR LEGAL WEED TO MURPHY'S DISGUST!
Ah a show with news, current events, insightful conversation about adult film stars of a specific niche. You know, Spankwagon Radio. Where we can never really reach rock bottom. Or, for Decaf, a Power Bottom.
This week Big Daddy Decaf takes the reigns and produces another stellar solo show chocked full of Angry Black Man. Download and get updates on his work, and hear how he mashed two of Murphy's bits together. -- That sounds far kinkier then it's meant to be.
This week we get book updates and a lesson on how to scare Decaf. We discuss the whole James Gunn fiasco in detail. We also FINALLY introduce a new bit ...
THE SPANKWAGON RADIO EPIC TOURNAMENT OF BULL$*&%!
Look, this week was a crap-fest. Sure, we were recording on a Tuesday. Sure, we got some great tales of Gorilla trying to murder Murphy with a golfball. It wasn't until the Lightning Round that the show was saved. Saved, by BATTLE BEASTS!
Okay, check this out. Decaf is either the most guileless guy on the face of the earth, or the LUCKIEST! You have to check out his adventure in getting to his vacation. Then we get to hear him and Chris ... well, download and listen.
In this episode we're swapping out Cruise-Boat-Captain-Decaf for his Holiness, Chief! This means that you get to hear Chief and I whine about Grad School together. Additionally, you get to hear Murphy whine about Chief and I whining about Grad School together. Oh, and we learn about the fun world of Seattle and how it's getting harder to deal with. Oh, and Murphy is complaining about something, again.
FINALLY! An episode that Murphy can listen to on his whole commute! This week we have a show and a half. No, seriously, we have the normal show we recorded this week and then we tacked on another partial show we recorded last week that when to shit when Murphy's WiFi crapped out. Oh, and we talked politics, and, um... we talked about what skeeves us out more in movies. I think we went down a strange old-white-man-rabbit-hole learning about Murphy whacking at some balls or something.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions. The road to Spankwagon is paved with apathy, indifference, procrastination, and Murphy. Since we know we can't get our shit together, let us help you get your shit together!
I won't lie this episode went off the rails pretty early on and turned into a comic book love fest for Murphy and me. Poor Decaf was left in the dust after his on-air mic check as Murph and I geeked out. So, please, think of Decaf the next time you are at your local comic book shop and buy the man an Archie Comic.
Two out of three hosts this week! Not bad! We're growing!
This week join in as Decaf and I have a great conversation about freedom of speech and the reaction of the right towards the Parkland students.
I was out this episode and that means Murphy and Decaf had a rip-roaring great show. A Real laugh fest from start to finish. Actually, from what I read in the show notes they both are bitter depressed old geeks.
Yep, quality Spankwagon right there, I tell ya.
Another great week of the GOAT list. This week we tackle the best books of all time! You are filling out the GOAT list, right? You better! Aside from that we talk about Andy's Post about Burnout Paradise (Which is why this episode is so late!)
Ahhhh yes, another week of Spankwagon Radio. This week we start to tackle the GOAT LIST. Murphy thinks he has the whole thing figured out. We have a visitor amongst us. And just what is going on with Murphy's voice? All this and so much MEH!
Update: Okay for those keeping score at home, the curse hit again. This time my audio track was so out of whack that it offset the timing of the whole damn show. In every direction. So, instead download this short that we put together talking about our upcoming GOAT show.
This week Decaf is hanging out in Southern California drinking corporate beer as he and I sit awkwardly close together. So, you know, a typical Spankwagon episode. As you already can imagine we discuss all sorts of current events and crap.
However, what we all learned at the end during the Lightning Round will, well, listen... it's ... just ... yeah.
Holy Cow What a Show! This week we talk sports, and sports, and that thing called the Olympics. We discuss Murphy's frustration with the lack of love for his Fantasy Baseball season. Then, we decide to discuss the contents of the dreaded C-Block. Which, as I write this realize that this is Murphy C-Blocking the fun that is this show. Yep, that's it. Murph is C-Blocking the fun. Way-To-Go-Murph.
Now that the Superb Owl is all wrapped up and Decaf has recovered from his Sports-Onset-Depression we bring you the very best in Facebook Fights, Football Recovery, and yet another media comeback. Oh and wait till the very end for a surprise!
This week we discuss Bitcoin*. As well as the idea of privacy on the internet. We delve into politics and dissect the XFL announcement from this week.
