  • Love you guys!

    I've never seen de Grassi, so your comments make me interested.

    The NYTimes writer you were looking for is Jason Blair.

    Four square is also called boxball. A server serves to the opposite square, and then you openhandedly strike the ball on the bounce to any other square, the object of which is to have the ball bounce once in the opponents square and be unplayable, either by bouncing twice or leaving the field of play.

    Re: 'Smother. Come out of the CLOSET! Just because she is visiting doesn't mean you have to change your life to suit her. It would be good to have her on for a small time. Besides, you guys don't talk about anything that would be salacious or embarassing. I mean, it seems like your idea of cutting loose is having two drinks :-).

    Nice Dan Rather inside joke, Kenneth.

    It is probably Taunton, England, in the county of Somerset.

  • I love it! That game I was trying to explain in the last posting is Four square. As soon as I heard Karen say it I knew that was it.

    Ross, Canada's submarine fleet is terrible. Ask Linden where we got them from, and more specifically, where the HMCS Chicoutimi came from and what happened to it.

    As for advice for your mom, I would tell her. etherdog is right. And, ask her to join in, or watch you two record. It cold be a special Zee and Zed show, and listeners would understand if it's not the normal format. Heck, I told my family and the worst I got was "podcast what?" No one in my family listens. I get, "I'm still waiting for when I buy an iPod.

  • Just realized I spelled Lyndon's name wrong. Ooops. Sorry.

  • Great show, guys, as always.

    Etherdog, if you want a quick Degrassi fix, do a search at either Google Video or Youtube. Youtube also has a couple of the original episodes.

    I was totally into foursquare when I was a kid and had completely forgotten about it.

    Oh, and Karen - you're totally not dating yourself talking about ringette - it is still alive and well and a few of my coworkers kids are involved.

    As for what to do about your mom - I'm with etherdog there as well - let her know about it and bring her on as well. You can't just go suggesting that idea and then never do it.

  • You guys should just do the show and let Mom toss in a comment or two while she's on her way to the kitchen.

    Or maybe instead of "Ask Lyndon" you could have "Ask Mom" for the next two weeks. :-)

  • Yeah you should still do the show, through thick and thin right? Of course, we've been trying to do one a week since the beginning. Not always the easiest task.

    Have I ever told you that we have the same taste in tunes! Love the cool kid punk rawk!

    Cheers

  • Agreed, have your mom join in to the show. I doubt anything could go seriously wrong.

  • I vaguely remember De Grassi. But the canadian show that I really loved was... "You Can't Do That on Television" on the fledgling Nickolodean station. Slimey!

  • ok so.

    1) This is the best show in recent memory. You guys are a fucking hoot. Man I want to hug yall and get you a beer.
    2) Just tell your mom its a one-off thing. Tell her its a way of captureing her wonderful stories for posterity. In otherwords, lie to her and tell her only the grandchildren will be listening.
    3) Yes I have been to King of Prussia Mall. It is so big that there is no front door per se, it has thousands of doors like the semipermiable membrane of a gigantic celluar being. Just walk towards it, before you know it, you are suddenly inside. I remember it as the place where Queen Bonk and I had breakfast after a college-days fling at a hotel the night before (BEFORE we were married ... scandalous!!!) OK OK TMI.
    5) I want to ask Lyndon, is he slowly going insane. If so, can he please go fully insane on one of his segments and fire off just a stream of cuss words. That would be awesome.
    6) Can we get a picture of you guys that isnt that caracature? I'm really needing to put face to voice.
    7) I think the more times you say "two balls" during the show the better.
    8) I think that Ross' incredulity at the Edmonton mall's ownership of a submarine fleet was the highlight of this show.
    9) number 9...number 9....
    10) fart

  • . . . number 9 . . .

    Thanks Bonk. I now have the only reason why the White Album is not the best album of all ages in my head.

    Another question for Lydon. How does he feel about that song? If he likes it. He is insane.

  • debt consolidation, you make some insightful points...

  • Hi,

    I've removed Debt Consolodation's post. If you want to know more about what he or she was saying, you can visit them here (though I don't condone the site or have much faith in it):

  • Och no, I was being sarcastic- I don't trust anyone who has to advertise like that!

    meant to say before, please don't go on hiatus...think you should just come clean :) xx

  • Dudes, we live bike-riding distance (which for me is like, two miles) from Woodfield Mall! When we say, hey, let's go the the mall, it's Woodfield. The way it's arranged, it doesn't even seem that big--which is to say, it's not "sprawling." But it has lots of little staircases and almost no elevators/escalators, which makes it very unfriendly to strollers and wheelchairs. The parking can be absolutely nightmarish. You can't get within a mile of it during December.

    And I don't think they have a submarine fleet. Too bad.
