We are fresh from our Anime Vegas panel this week. What a blast that was. Everyone was so nice and the crowd seemed to enjoy themselves… I hope they did anyway. We should have taken more pictures. Dropped the ball on that one. Next time we’ll have a photographer for sure! We talked for a bit about our show and what it is we do here in our creepy little corner of the web. Then we did our world-famous half-assed costume contest. That’s it’s official name now, by the way. And we wrapped things up with a quiz show. Dennis, Charlie and Mike all chose 2 audience members to team up with. The 3 teams then had to give answers to multiple choice questions Jabari and I read to them. This is where a surprising event occurred.
One of the questions asked what Warner Brothers’ first animated character was. If you’re a longtime listener, you know Who in the Asked You? Crew should’ve known this… that’s right, Mike. But unfortunately, Mike’s team answered incorrectly. We were all stunned to say the least. That’s why, on today’s program, I’m giving Mike a chance to redeem himself. Will he do so? You’ll find out.
After that matter is cleared up, it’s onto our newest bit, the “Who Asked You? Calendar”. A brief, but informative look at the vague and obscure holidays in the week ahead. After doing a few of these already, it’s become clear Charlie is not a fan of most “Something Something Days”. For example, Sunday, the day we netcasted this episode live on ErrorFM.com, it was “World Kindness Day”. A pretty self explanatory celebration. Charlie’s response is classic… classic Charlie that is.
Eddie Murphy is out of the Oscars. He was scheduled to host the upcoming event. But his director buddy, Brett Ratner, who was also planning to co-produce the Oscars telecast, made an insulting gay slur on Howard Stern’s radio show and consiquently backed out of the gig. Eddie soon followed. Now hosting duties will once again fall on Oscar-veteran Billy Crystal. There was that Eddie Murphy news as well as some regarding BEVERLY HILLS COP 4. I will tell you, the film is NOT happening according to Murphy. However, he is developing another project within the franchise. We’ve got those details and our thoughts on them.
Nickelback… They were the 2nd and 3rd out of 6 stories on the rundown. But these 2 bits of Nickel-news consumed the remained of this week’s show. First up, the musical taste dating site, TasteBuds.fm, conducted a poll to see which musical groups or artists were the biggest turn-offs. And Nickelback won the day. Nearly 1 in 8 people said they would end a date without sex if they found out their date liked the pop-rock band. And what’s worse for them are the bands they beat out for the spot. That’s where the gasoline is thrown upon the flame and another classic Who Asked You? argument errupts. This one so heated it forced an on-the-fly change of the “We Ask You Poll”. Originally the question was: Do you like Nickelback? But we decided we needed additional opinions other than ours to settle who’s worse, Nickelback or Creed. Be sure to cast your vote on the poll to the right! If there’s someone you think is worse than those 2, send us an E-Mail!
Another bruise to the Canadian band’s ego is discoloring nicely. They’re scheduled to play the Detroit Lions’ halftime show this Thanksgiving, but Lions fans aren’t having it. Many are so upset over it, they’ve started a petition over at Change.org. And they’re pretty damn close to getting the 70,000 signatures they need to formerly request a change of performers. The petition sites the fact that Detroit has a large number of talented musicians (more talented than Nickelback in their opinion) and that they didn’t want the nationally televised game to give off the impression that Nickelback is somehow closely associated with Detroit. I read the entire impassioned plea on the show, it’s pretty funny and frank. If you feel the same as many do about Nickelback, you too can sign the petition using the link in the Show Links below. Charlie did it on-air! No doubt this argument will pick up again on next week’s episode when we reveal the poll results. Until then, take a cue from the protesters on Wall Street… pitch a tent, don’t shower and Occupy Nickelback.
