TBTL Plea

September 29, 2009 Leave a comment

Oh Hai!

I have a quick request for you all.  If you love, or even are mildly interested in, quirky podcasts, please take the time to subscribe to the TBTL podcast on itunes.  My most favoritist show ever in the history of man kind was recently let out to pasture by their radio station in Seattle Washington (boo, hiss).  Luke and company are now doing the show exclusively as a podcast.  They are doing a great job if I do say so myself.   The more downloads the better for their future.  Please help the show rise up the ranks on the itunes top 100.  You won’t regret it.

You can also visit the show blog at tbtl.net.

A Muppet Awesome

Oh Hai!

Friday night the TBTL gang did a show about why the Muppets matter.  Prior to the show they asked for input.  I posted a comment on their blog that brought back some great memories of Sunday night Muppet Show watching with my family past my normally early bedtime.

Muppets = Later Bed Time
The Muppets totally matter. Some of my best childhood memories involve Muppets. When I was a kid there were only two television shows that I was allowed to stay up past my 7:30 bed time to watch. One was the Duke’s of Hazard (?) on Friday nights and the other was the Muppets. I think my parents allowed us kids to stay up late and watch the Muppets because they completely loved the show as well. Around the time I was in the sixth grade the Muppet Movie came out. Most of my musical memories of that year involve the soundtrack of the movie and the song Rainbow Connection. I can’t sing to save my life, but my childhood voice mangled that song over and over again that year. I still watch the Muppet Christmas Carol every year. Great Stuff!!!

I was so excited yesterday to hear that Luke read my comment on air.  It was totally awesome and brought back even more warm and fuzzy memories.  That is one reason I love TBTL.  Almost everyday they talk about something from my childhood: Encyclopedia Brown, The A-Team, Madonna, The Muppets, The Blood Hound Gang from 3-2-1 Contact.  It goes on an on and its great fun to relive some of those great times from the past.  Thanks guys.  Oh, and Jen and I also now have something in common.  We both love the Converse clothing at Target.  Who knew we would share some fashion sense.

Next up!  Is it really normal for a 38 year old woman to totally obsessed over the Twilight books?

Two Frogs + Snail = TBTL

Is it rude to name frogs and a snail after my favorite radio personalities? I sure hope not, because I meant it purely as a honor. Today I added some new pets to my brood. The two frogs are named after Luke and Jen (I can’t tell which is which) on TBTL. The little snail is named Sean, Japan’s #1 Snail. Please don’t be offended TBTL gang, I name all my pets after characters I love and you guys are some of the most interesting characters I know.

TBTL

I am so excited, 123 people looked at this blog yesterday. I can’t believe it, as I consider myself rather boring. I just thank you for looking, it boosts my spirits. Well anyway, my topic for tonight is one of my greatest obsessions – TBTL. Those of you who listen share my obsession I am sure. Those of you who have no idea what I am talking about are really missing out. Too Beautiful to Live or TBTL is a radio talk show (sort of) that started in Seattle, WA in January, 2008. Since the start it has become quite the podcast sensation with 10’s of fans all over the world (literally). The show is hosted by a Luke Burbank who is ably assisted by Jen Andrews and Japan’s Number 1 Mixer, Sean Detori. TBTL is not a traditional talk show as they don’t take calls much and they rarely if ever talk about typical talk show topics. Mostly the hosts share stories and discuss pop culture ephemera. The reason I love the show so much is because the hosts are always willing to share their lives. It is a lot like having a conversation with a really funny group of friends. I was hooked the minute I heard Luke tell his story of becoming a ninja as a youth (it’s a classic). His stories of trick or treating and scatological disaster at a Mariner’s game are also classics. All in all it’s great stuff, and it helps me end my day on a high note. If I have piqued your interest, TBTL can be heard on 97.3 FM in Seattle. It is also available on iTunes and streaming on the web at mynorthwest.com. I highly encourage you to give it a hear. It is an acquired taste, but when you acquire it you will never let it go.
