Today is National French Fries Day and National Beans And Franks Day. Tony and Nhat go to Juicy Burgers & Fries to celebrate the occasion. Nhat orders fries, but gets none, but doesn’t get charged. They end up giving him free fries because of the blessed occasion. Nhat has a horrific dream to share and Tony talks about the time he was fighting off zombies and burglars in his sleep and managed to punch the wall in mid-dream.
We find out that Tony produces extra saliva in his mouth (along with producing extra sweat), so much so that he’ll occasionally choke on his own spit for no apparent reason. Tony’s co-worker is let go mysteriously after 16 years with the same company as a productive worker and Tony thinks he may be next. Colorado, unfortunately, is an At-Will Employment state, so people can be let go with no real justification needed and they talk about how or if something like that can be changeable.
We pay our respects to Tommy Ramone and play “Sheena Is A Punk Rocker” in tribute.
We get a little serious for the first part of this podcast and talk about mental illness in the family, deadbeat friends and just life in general. Then we go over the pros and cons of working in corporate America and what to expect if you’re thinking of “dwelving” (as Tony would say) into that world. Nhat makes a bet with Tony that we’ll eventually get a tweet from a listener before the 20th episode and winner buys lunch.
It’s June 8, 2014 and it’s also National Best Friend Day and National Upsy Daisy Day. Nhat is flattered that Tony is spending Best Friend’s Day with him and Tony wants to throw up in his mouth. We both lament that we wish we had known earlier that we were supposed to be more positive for National Upsy Daisy Day. We play some terrible music to try and determine which one of them was the top of the shit heap. The band Harlequin wins by a long shot with their turd, Heaven (Dial 999). Listen to it HERE, if you dare. Nhat gives up on relationships in general because he has better things to do. Corporate creeps are brought up, Tony’s working (and defending the lives of artists) at the Denver Comic Con, and we talk about weird murder-y people in general.
We started our podcast with Death Angel’s “Ultra-Violence,” so we figured it was fitting to have another Death Angel song on our 10th podcast.. one that we both agree “fucking rocks”… “Discontinued,” from their best album, Act III.
We both work at corporate hellholes and talk a bit about our every day frustrations and our very first jobs. We go a little bit into death, life and Marvel movies and Godzilla. Nhat asks Tony the question of the week, which is “Would you have sex with Mystique if she could morph into anyone you wanted, provided that the last person was yourself?” There is some confusion as to what genitals she would have under this guise.
