Done. If you're lucky you will be sharing the bill with Neil Hamburger who has tentatively said he'd come down.

I would very much like to hear Matt having a discussion with Neil Hamberger. Especially if Matt doesn't know who Neil Hamburger is.

Actually I'd more enjoy talking to Gregg Turkington, but that was nixed right off the bat.

Who the hell is Neil Hamburger? Did he invent a famous sandwich of some sort?

America's Funnyman?

If you are unlucky you will be in the same room as Neil Hamburger. I mean, I watched as much of the DVD as I could stomach on a friend's recommendation. Patently not funny.

Seriously, I thought Kim Jong Il had joined for a minute there.

Gregg Turkington, former owner of famed, eclectic Armadillo Records created a character called Neil Hamburger, America's Funny Man. The act consists of Neil dressed in a worn tux, bald combover, birth control glasses and about half a dozen vodka tonics jammed under his arm telling the worst locker jokes you've ever heard. Its so bad its good.

"Why....did GOD....give Sublime TEN gold records?"

Audience heckling..yelling answers...

{Neil coughes loudly into the mic to drown everyone out}

"It was an accounting error... he meant to give them AIDS"\

It's brilliant.

He'll be performing at the Hemlock on the 15th.

Note he would be the 5pm guest, not actually doing the interview with matt.

Yeah, I know. But I have an overactive imagination.

I wrote that joke.



And then Neil Hamburger raped me.

Can we make it "Peerless Leader" instead of "Fearless Leader" for Matt? That way we can still show our collective awe but he doesn't feel obligated to jump in front of a bullet for any of us.

No, but I will consider "Cheerless Leader", this way he doesn't get to inflated.

Since he manages serve us so much delicious internet without staring uncomfortably at us, perhaps we should call him Leerless Feeder.

Hey that was fun to listen to. I know mathowie always worries that he sounds like he's on cough syrup, but I thought that was an interesting listen, thanks!
