Hello! We're not here anymore...

At long last Cherry Spitz finally has our very own website!

Blogger has been our main base of online operations from July of 2009 until early 2011. We've had a lot of fun over the past few years, and these posts will remain as part of the great history of Cherry Spitz. The "PODCASTS" page will still be updated and of course the Twitter feed is still current. Other than that we've pretty much closed up shop here. This is last call.

Thanks for being there for us, Blogger.

And strangely enough, happy 101st post.

Goodbye my friend,
James (on behalf of the team)

Lost Podcast: 80's Movies! (Season 1, Episode 2)

Let’s take a little journey back to 2009…

Where a ragtag band of comedy hotshots are trying their hand at podcasting...

STARRING: James Stebick, Erik Wargo, Lars Hansen, Tim Gale

What’s up, amigos. James here and we at Cherry Spitz have a treat for you today.

We have unearthed a podcast from our fledgling first season of shows for your listening pleasure. “But website, since you’re a website, can’t I just go back and look up season one of the Cherry Spitz podcast myself?” The answer would be “No, foolish human!” As it turns out, our first season of podcasts are on a feed that we no longer control. There was a fight with Tron, some lightcycles got blown up, it was a big mess – but the point is this: We will be bringing you classic episodes from Season 1 of the Cherry Spitz Podcast you love so much.

On this week’s classic episode, “80′s Movies,” your Spitz heroes (James, Erik, Lars and alumni Tim) take a look at some disturbing movies from the 1980s that were passed of as “children’s films.” Maybe we discuss some of your childhood favorites! Plus we discuss a forgotten classic by John Murray (not to be confused with his slightly more famous actor brother, Brain Doyle-Murray) and we drink some candy booze! Come get a taste of classic podcast goodness.

80's Movies (Lost Season 1 Episode)

FLASH FACT: This epsiode features the first appearance of what would eventually become our famous sign-off line.

Don’t forget to come see us as we make our long-awaited return to STAGES Theatre in Fullerton this Saturday, February 12th! We will be taking the stage at midnight after the Fly Space show. Tickets are only five dollars, and FREE if you come to the Fly Space show beforehand (which is also 5 bucks). Plus the theater is BYOB so bring a drink and come see your favorite comedy group in action!

See you this Saturday, amigos. Until then, y’all stay classy.

Ep. 4.02- Ford Taurus of Solitude

In our ever-vigilant endeavors to present to you, Dear Listener, the finest in comedic podcastery and robust jackassery, Lars upgrades Catbus Headquarters for another exciting episode. And you'll be so deeply relieved, Dear Loyal Listener, that we FINALLY address the second half of Cyndi Lauper's mega-opus musical video, "The Goonies R All Right". Come on off that ledge, friend, the Spitz are gonna make it all better. Also in this episode, Lars shares what he knows about super heroes emerging in Seattle (which immediately prompts James into planning for a career in super-villainy), Erik and James throw metaphorical wrenches at each others' points, and James takes us through another round of Star Wars Mad Libs. It's another exciting adventure and maybe we'll even find out where One Eyed Willie's gold really is.

Ep. 4.01 - Downright Sicilian

We recorded some podcast material that was pure gold... and then we realized it wasn't recording...

And that's where our new episode begins! Hello, loyal fans, it's your handsome hero James here. Welcome to what we are evidently calling Season 4! Hooray!!! Our new podcast opens with Erik informing me that the awesome podcast we thought we had going had not recorded at all. Listen as I take that news poorly. That's right, it's an Erik and James episode!

But that's not all! On this week's show we also talk about other local podcasts we enjoy, the construction happening at Thundergoat Studios, giggling, and the true meaning of the words "CHERRY SPITZ" [Spoiler Alert: It's a lie]. Plus Black Rob shows up to pose another insightful question in a segment we're apparently calling "Rob & a Hard Place."

Download the new episode right over here: Downright Sicilian

Music breaks provided by HORSE the Band, Primus, Oingo Boingo and The Dead Kenny Gs. Plus we have a BRAND NEW THEME SONG by hip hop superstar and friend of the group Rocom.

Here are some of the podcasts we talked about in the new episodes. Go check em out, but be sure to come back here to us. We get so lonely without you. You know what we like... What were we talking about? Oh yeah, other podcasts. Here are our recommendations:

The Harbinger

The Carl and Josh Show


(One time I hit Erik with my invisible car) >>>>>

We have some live shows coming up! Come see us this Sunday January 30th at the Long Beach Play House as part of their Studio Nights. Show starts at 6pm. Also you can see us performing a brand new show at STAGES Theater on February 12th @ midnight. More details on that show coming soon.

Stay tuned, amigos. The Spitz have some rad stuff coming for you real soon. Until then, y'all stay classy.

So what did YOU have for Portuguese breakfast?

Ahoy hoy, loyal Spitz fans! Today we clean out our last bit of Holiday Leftovers in a podcast that's way more than just refried bits from other episodes. Join your buddies James, Kat, Erik, Black Rob, and The Dude Von Dude from the Harbinger podcast as they discuss the hard-hitting issues. This episode's topics include the beautiful and endangered pinball machine, the Street Fighter versus Mortal Kombat argument, the top movies of 2010, Steinbeck breastfeeding scenes, and names that sound like genitals. Plus regional sex acts and we all sing Journey's "Seperate Ways" off tempo.

Ep. 3.11 - 2010 Holiday Leftovers: Part 1

2010 is over and we need to clear out our inventory, so we're bringing back the Holiday Leftover series with chunks of audio from the previous year that didn't make it into a full episode. It's primarily Spitz members James, Erik and Kat with regular guests Black Rob and The Dude Von Doom. We talk MC Chris, Compton, Predator, Black Dynamite, Bubba The Love Sponge, Jurassic Park, 90s Warner Brothers Cartoons and argue over which 16-bit system didn't show blood on their copy of Mortal Kombat.

Lots of music and audio drops!

See you soon with part 2 and some announcements regarding actual live shows!

Ep. 3.10 - Aquachicken

Cherry Spitz wishes you a Happy Hangover Day on this joyous 1-1-11! And to nurse those dogs barking in your head, how about listening to us yapping and howling about all the nonsense 2010 brought us.

In the aftermath of Christmas carnage, the gang gets together to lick their egg-nog induced wounds. In this installment we hear from Kat, Matt, James, myself, and special guest brother Kjel from some damn bay area hippy town up north.

Here's a picture of him in his Sunday best.

Kjel recounts exciting stories from up north featuring his work in semi-urban amateur taxidermy and trap setting. Yes, folks, we're going deep into the psyche of a dangerously unstable individual. Also, James introduces a new bit based on everyone's favorite Star Wars about libs what are mad. Sorry, it hard to type- there's an owl in my brain and it won't stop hooting.
