Eleven Dubcast: Turkeys Away

I learn a lot about myself during Michigan week. My capacity for anger, my complete inability to recognize logic and reasoning, and why so many people tend to find Ohio State fans obnoxious and irritating. Yes. I accept all of this.

Jim Tressel, in dog form

I accept it because I know that all of that pent up rage is in the service of a greater good; beating Michigan in a contest of foot-ball in late November is literally the most patriotic and genuinely American thing that I can do for this country. I am not a brave man individually, but with the combined might of hundreds of thousands of Ohio State alumni, I can muster up the courage to make a podcast that tells the world how I feel about That School Up North.

Today, Sarah and I look deep into the bowels of hell, and Brian Cook from MGoBlog stares back at us from the abyss. He is our Virgil, and today we sink deep into the morass that is Brady Hoke's Michigan Wolverines.

Dare you, stranger? Dare you take the plunge with us on this fateful afternoon?

0:21- Wisconsin. Michigan. The secrets of the universe. Sarah and I make a valiant effort to talk about the Wisconsin game, but giddyness overtakes us.

15:15- Brian Cook leads us onward, and gives us a Denard update and fills us in on his feelings about the Rivalry and how he expects his cadre of fiends and demons to fare on Saturday.

32:54- Ask Us Anything ([email protected])! A weird detour to be sure, but at least my terrible secret is revealed for all to hear.

53:35- Christmas in November.

Music for the Dubcast this week was a delightful mashup with some Busta, and Just Couldn't Tie Me Down and Ohio by Ohio's own, The Black Keys.

Nice WKRP in Cincinnati reference, you guys.  Probably the funniest Thanksgiving episode of all time.

I think the turkey drop and the softball game are my two favorite episodes with the one where the state trooper dude tries to get Johnny drunk on the air but can't is first alternate.

Good call on The Black Keys tunes.  "Till I get my Way" is phenominally underrated; saw them at the Agora in '09 during their Attack and Release tour, and they played it for their closer, orgasmic.

hodge's picture

Ahh, see I've gotta go with "Meet me in the City", "She Said She Said", and "Thickfreakness".

How could you guys afford Brian Cook?  I thought you were on a budget.

Johnny Ginter's picture

we sent him a gigantic .zip file filled with pictures of otters and kittens

M Man's picture

That's just great.  Kittens.  And you know how much pictures of otters eat, in a week?  What Brian really wanted was more charts and graphs and brightly-colored data compilations.

I just put two black keys CDs on my iPod. I hope to learn the ways soon. Speaking of kittens  we are so close to game day. Can't wait to go undefeated and beat the Shizzle out of those ass clown pussies from mushigan. Hate!!!!!!!!!

The problem with two Black Keys CDs is that their entire discography encompasses six studio releases.  Also, check their Junior Kimbrough blues EP, Chulahoma; it's some of their best work, especially if you dig trance blues.

well, 7, 9 if you count blackroc and chulahoma which i do

hodge's picture

True.  I excluded them because Blackroc is a collab, and Chulahoma an EP, but you are indeed correct.

Good answer, Johnny. Good answer.

Taquitos.

That was a beautiful speech by Brian Cook, he put it just about perfectly.

I have foghat. I have a lot of stuff. But I wanted/needed to add music I didn't have. Thanks for the input.
