Wilson is off getting Kindled, so Jeff and I take the show by the horns and relate our weekend stories. I got a chance to watch the live taping of Saturday Night Live, and sat next to Kirsten Dunst (yes, I wussed out and didn't ask her to come on the show). I also checked out Comic Con on Sunday, and a big thanks to David from Comixology for hooking it up with his extra pass. Listen in to today's show for a two-man conversation about Twitter spam, child subway performers, more opinions on the Michael Phelps controversy, … Read more
We talk a lot about drug legalization, but the truth is that Steve Guttenberg is the only drug we need to get us through the day. He joins us for a very compelling conversation about the afterlife, and we even start to get metaphysical--don't worry, we don't get into it for too long. After that, we get into a story about a very unique monthly calendar, our weekend plans, and what exactly is causing that peculiar maple syrup smell in New York.EPISODE 275 Download today's podcast
Today marks a very strange day for The 404. If this is your first time listening to The 404, you picked a good one because this is something of a milestone. Recently it's come to our attention that the show is becoming more tabloidy and less anecdotal...which is bad. So check out this show baby- tons of personal stories about statewide bagging competitions, DTV delays, voluntary amputation, wikipedia editing, and the best place to spend spring break. If you're a veteran listener, prepare yourself for total domination...wait, was that a video game reference or a quote … Read more
She's a writer, a blogger, TV personality, and comedian. She's a Jaquelyn-of-all-trades. But her name isn't Jaquelyn--it's Alison, with a Rosen afterward. We usually don't trust Natali Del Conte's guest recommendations, but we make an exception just this once and it pays off, because Alison truly does understand our brand of "juvenile" humor. This episode is all about milk jugs, printer ink, YouTube porno, sleep boning, and much more. I think Alison just won Dirty Birdy of the Month.
The 404 and Alison Rosen were designed to be together. In a platonic … Read more
Why are so many celebrities such DIVAS!? We start off today's show with a heinous recording of Christian Bale freaking out on an innocent director of photography on the set of the new terminator. We also refuse to accept Michael Phelps for getting his herb on, but we do give Miley Cyrus a grand slam for slanting her eyes in a photo.
I really hate how this controversy is becoming the latest trend in the public spotlight. Why do people think it's OK to make racist poses in photos? First the Spanish basketball team, and now Miley Cyrus. … Read more
The 404 is a big supporter of open-source information, so we invite our buddy Nic Hill, director of Truth in Numbers: the Wikipedia Story, to shed some light on the site and its ongoing controversy. He gives us the full rundown on how Wikipedia works, his experience working on the film, and his travels around the world expounding the merits of information and community.
Free digital content is an intrinsic right, or at least it should be. That's the Wikipedia.com ethos, and we're still in the dark about how the site actually works. Luckily, Nic Hill is … Read more
Today' s show is very unusual, since we don't actually talk about any stories, but we're all too lucid to give a damn. Paul Ramsay, professional hypnotist, joins us in the studio to put us under his trance while he explains how the process works, the benefits of hypnotherapy, and the overall power of the mind. If nothing else, you have to hear him put Wilson into the most docile state we've ever seen, to the point where he start to drool and we're forced to tape a cup to his chin. Later on, in the … Read more
Alternate show title: Where Wilson Tang is the worst son ever. As much as we love Wilson's Mom calling in and recording her voice for us, we can't help but give Wilson flak for exploiting his own flesh and blood. Today's show starts off innocently enough with a story about a disgustingly delicious Super Bowl snack, but in typical 404 fashion, it quickly sinks to dirtier waters (pun intended) thanks to yours truly. You know what? I don't even regret it! And special thanks to our surprise visitor, listen in to find out whom!
Filthy filthy … Read more
Don't get your longjohns in a knot; even though we'd love more love makin' (not to each other), that show title is actually an inside joke about one of the stories on today's show. We invite our resident love guru MTI back onto the show to get his expert opinion on making love to vegetables, how to use a headset in the boudoir, and more passionate stories from around the Internet. It's all love today on The 404!
Today's show is all about helping you out in the sack. Unfortunately, we can't be there … Read more
We made it onto Engadget! Well, sort of. It was kind of an accident, but Engadget is Engadget right? On today's show, we discuss some video game news with our buddy Russ Frushtick, the games editor for UGO.com. We also talk about our accidental plug on Engadget.com, explore some of the unhealthiest foods on the planet, and we briefly consider raising our kids on our favorite movies from the sci-fi universe. The second half gets absurdly dirrrty, with red light talks on fleshlights, 3d porn, massage therapy, and a very disturbing reading from Wilson Tang.
Today's … Read more
