Ep 2.03 - IST - The Bee Girl Doesn't Like Being Called The Bee Girl

Forgive us our bawdy linguistic colloquialisms.
Avast ye, audio adventurers, it is another Cherry Spitz Podcast! In this death defying episode, Tony, Erik, Tim, James, and B-Rob catapult the propaganda by telling stories of: how good Huey Lewis is (or bad...if you like to be wrong), various terrifying road accidents, being the muscle for ladies of the night, and the Bee Girl - oh, the sweet, sweet Bee Girl.

"Let's have fun on television"

"If you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen." - Conan O'Brien

The king of late-night is dead. Long live the king.

Conan O'Brien did his final Tonight Show this past Friday, a mere seven months into his tenure as the new host. This wasn't supposed to happen. People like me have been waiting for years to see Coco take his rightful throne atop all the other late-night clowns. Seven months. It's like if Obama got laid off a month after being sworn in so that we could have another term under Bush.

I'm sure at this point everyone has heard what has gone down between Conan, Jay Leno, and NBC. Personally I really don't wish to re-hash the details again because frankly there's nothing to talk about. It's happened. Jay Leno is a pompous shitbag, NBC clearly has no idea what it's doing, and as far as I'm concerned the Tonight Show is over. If anyone reading this has no idea what I'm talking about, this video will explain it all. And very clearly.

That's pretty much what happened. Conan turned into the Hulk and apparently Captain America's power comes from the top of his glowing head. It goes without saying that Conan O'Brien deserved better than this. This was supposed to be the dawning of a new renaissance for late-night comedy. After Jay Leno had spent the better part of the past decade making the Tonight Show thoroughly unfunny Conan was finally coming in to return the once great show to Carson-level status. And now, after a mere seven months, it's right back to the old status quo. Goodbye Andy Richter and Masturbating Bear; hello more wacky headlines.

If you have not yet seen Conan's final episode check it out, it's quite a show. Steve Carrell stops by to do Conan's exit interview on behalf of NBC. My professional nemesis Sir Thomas Hanks stopped by and was his usual, charming self. Neil Young performs, and not the song "Hey Hey, My My" as I predicted when I first heard he would be appearing on the final Tonight Show. Plus Beck, Billy Gibbons, and Mister Will Ferrell himself show up for the final close-out. Not to mention all the emotional retrospection and looks back at Conan's epic NBC career. Watch it here: Coco's final Tonight Show

This got to me:

If anything this whole ordeal with NBC screwing Conan over has made me indeed cynical. Cynical about the whole entertainment business and the process behind it. It felt like Conan was talking directly to me/the Spitz. I think I can confidently speak on behalf of the whole group when I say that Conan O'Brien has been an inspiration and idol to me for years and if any of us in the Spitz have even half the career he already has then it would be both a fantastic accomplishment and partially due to Conan himself. Thanks for everything Conan O'Brien. We miss you already, and can't wait to see where you turn up next.

We at Cherry Spitz promise to continue working hard and being kind. Stay tuned for some amazing things.

Ep 2.02 - IST - Shim Sham Magicians

`Sup homeskillet?

Cherry Spitz are back with another installment for your hungry, hungry ears. In today's episode, Shim Sham Magicians, Tony, James, Erik and B-Rob avoid the rain (that TONY caused!) and get down to the nitty gritty on topics such as merciless improvisational beatings, the late night tv landscape., disaster movies (including Faces of Death), freakishly skinny CGI actors, "The Cobain Conspiracy," Tony & James' love for Joss Whedon, goth poetry, washed-up professional wrestlers, the 2010 celebrity deadpool and that crappy Vincent Gallo movie that came out a couple of years ago! Just when things can't get any bleaker, a Mexican Standoff breaks out as B-Rob and Erik put guns to our collective head and force us to choose even more heinous fates.

To top it all off, Iffy calls in for a grizzled Q&A session with Erik.

Below is your prescribed optical intake of episodic propaganda. Drink plenty of water when you take these.

Is that game show music that I hear?

$4K Raised at Help For Haiti!

Hey gang. Just thought we'd share with all your wonderful friends of the Spitz that we helped raise $4,000 dollars at the Help for Haiti show on the 17th.

It was a great turnout and a really good house. We hit the audience with a fast and furious set and they kept up with us just the same.

Thanks again to Virginia and the FOUND Theatre for setting all this up. Really tasty desserts, good acts, and a fantastic crowd; what's not to like?

See you on a stage near you soon.

Season 1: Bagged and Tagged

Wow guys! An entire season of Cherry Spitz podcasting is now behind us. For those of you late to the game, before you lies our epic journey from fritzy sound quality, forced segues and tears of awkwardness, to a more natural and open format, and then to the eventual splitting of podcast styles: D-House and Ice Station Thundergoat (IST).

You'll virtually experience what it's like for a group of chimps to evolve into celestial podcast deities over the course of 30 installments of 26 episodes and a handful of bonus episodes.

If you subscribe to our iTunes, well, there's been a slight, but BETTER change of things.

This is our old feed, where you can also get all of Season 1: OLD FEED

This is our new feed, where going forward, you can get not just podcasts, but video sketches and improv performances: NEW FEED

Podcasting is just a cog in the menacing mirth machine that is Cherry Spitz. Our net is cast wide. Our tentacles, many. It's a new year and a new era for the Spitz.

Be seeing you,

The Harbinger - Episode 5.0

Hey gang! Erik here!

This past week has been a blur. Working around the clock for my homies, The Cherry Spitz, has been a rewarding process. Between editing together the Holiday Leftovers series, slapping some lovely buttons on the side of the blogspot and collaborating on some super secret Spitz specials, I managed to squeeze in some time with my good friend, The Dude Von Doom and his MONSTER comic book podcast, The Harbinger, where I have risen to the role of co-host! It is truly an honor.

Check out this very special covert episode recorded in the bowels of the Cal State Fullerton library on a Saturday afternoon.

The Harbinger: Zero Hour

He has done an amazing job with the site, with all the little sexy buttons and such. I've re-devoted my life to the Spitz, so you'll be seeing more of me! Suck on that Trebeck!

Ep 26 - IST - Facist Leap

Hello again, all you beautiful people.

James here with another Spitz podcast fresh from the audio tubes at Thundergoat Studios. Lucky you!

This week's show is the last of our "Holiday Leftovers" podcasts and features Erik Wargo, Tony Najera, myself, and our own "Nubian Burt Reynolds" Ify Nwadiwe. What's the big topic? Time travel! Specifically, where in history you would want to go if given the opportunity? That and time-travelling Hitler (who's a total douche). Also we start talking about our lives before the Spitz, and have to use fancy sound effects to edit out a name we don't want to mention. Maybe it's you! Plus Ify calls me out for playing a show with The Lobby [hey guys!], and more with our sexy new robot announcer.

Get it here: Cherry Spitz IST Podcast: Fascist Leap

Music by 8-bit Guns and Roses, Reel Big Fish, The Who, and Handsome Boy Modeling School.

Erik keeps an empty keg in his fridge to taunt us. He also ate every last one of those doughnuts. >>>>>>>

Mark your calendars now, Spitz fans... BIG LIVE SHOW on Feb 18th!!! More details coming soon. This is something we need our fans for. Cage matches are serious business...

The Icarus Project

I figured this was interesting enough to share with everyone...

How does man make the "Ultimate Sandwich"? This is a question that some friends and I have been discussing recently. We seem to keep coming back to a few key factors: Hot meat core, tasty fixins, and a most excellent edible casing for such an affront to God. Since I am the only one of my friends that works in/around a kitchen I took it upon myself to piece together something that could rival the epic "Luther."

After several drafts and debate over components I assembled what we have been referring to as the "Icarus." Yes, named for the legendary myth of the boy who flew too close to the sun. See also "Led Zeppelin album covers." The name is to serve as a warning to those who would challenge it.

Credit for the actual construction goes to Effy, one of the top cooks at my restaurant. The Icarus (Version 1.0) is composed of the following:
- Half pound cheeseburger, with American cheese
- Bacon, roughly 4 pieces in what can only be described as a "bed of bacon"
- One fried egg, over medium
- Two pieces of French Toast, non-sugared of course

Truth be told, I was only able to finish half of it. I'm already toying with other ideas for monstrous challenge entrees. I'm open to suggestions.

Ep 25 - IST - The Prisoner's Dilemma


Erik, here. In the mix of all the usual holiday drama, I had forgotten about a big block of audio the Spitz boys had recorded at Thundergoat Studios. It's a fierce onslaught as Tony, James, Ify, Tim, Black Rob and myself breakdown a plethra of meaty topics for two whole hours. Do you think you can handle it? Bare witness to what lies ahead!

Black People and Milk

Yeah! That's right! Ify and B-Rob pull back the black curtain on this compelling social issue. We put on our lab coats and find out what happens when Ify drinks half the milk in my fridge.

Has Acting Down To A Science??

B-Rob, in all his infinite wisdom, believes that Dolph Lundgren is one of the greatest actors ever. Better than Anthony Hopkins! Tony tries to verbally slap some sense into him. But what of Dolph's REAL-LIFE scientific credentials? When will he be recognized for his contributions to the scientific community? Outside of Always Sunny in Philadelphia, that is.

Yeah, Tim Saw It

Come listen to Tim explain how the totally rad looking destruction of Earth is an analogy for the human condition and our constant fear of losing what's left of our innocence. Especially the parts where John Cusack escapes 500 waves and gaping fault lines.

There's a New Karate Kid Movie?!

But...but Jackie Chan does Kung Fu. Right? I'm not crazy for wondering why they call it The Karate Kid. I feel like it's as if there was a movie called The Pitcher and it was a movie about a soccer goalie. Can't they just call it the Kung Fu Kid? Bah. Whatever. We talk about it.

Between A Rock & Prison Gang Rape

Hanging out with B-Rob is like having a mirror into your soul. He reveals things about you that you probably never considered, or even should consider for that matter. Like, if you went to prison for four years, would you.... well, just listen and find out. It's like being an extra on Oz.

New Theme Park?

Ify's been brainstorming. Again, you'll have to listen. Mostly because I don't want to type it out.

Without further adieu, The Prisoner's Dilemma!
