Happy Easter! This week Marc gets the shaft from his town, we go loco for the new Dorito’s taco, play urinal games, ask who stole our cheese, and review the stories of The Bible, much to Joanna’s dismay.
Part 2 to this super-sized CRH recaps Marc’s month of insanity, and explores tipping etiquette. Then we geek out over “The Epic History of Every Day Things” and a whole lot more. We’ve got a month to make up for, so enjoy.
This week we rejoice in the return of hockey, lament over some of history’s oddest deaths, Joanna shares the story of how she met Mike, and Marc finds a poll where people choose the lesser of two evils. You’ll be shocked at what America prefers to Congress.
It’s the first show of 2013 and we start the year with Joanna’s tales of drinking alone and Mike accidentally killing his car. Then it’s favorite things and the return of Bane who, apparently, has a potty mouth.
It’s the CRH year end extravaganza! This week, we take a look back at our most favorite, favorite things of 2012. And since we are on vacation, we’ve even got a special guest host, who we now realize, may not like us all that much. Next time we’ll do a much better job at vetting our substitutes.
This week Marc and Mike start by arguing over baseball, much to Joanna’s chagrin. We then get geeky over our favorite TV shows both past and present; hit up our favorite things which include a 12 year old “enforcer” and a certain Twitter takeover. Finally, we close the show with Mike’s least favorite thing which gets all of us fired up!
This week we discuss why it’s best not to be anyone’s neigbor in Belize and a debate about our least favorite holiday songs leads me to a million dollar idea. I attempt to redeem the holiday spirit with my favorite thing and then Marc’s favorite thing features all that is wrong with humanity today. Thanks, Howie Mandel.
In this week’s episode Marc and I have to agree to disagree a lot. We start off with a discussion of a promising new job prospect for Mike and then discuss Hollywood’s most overpaid actors/actresses which gives us a chance to debate the enigma that is Nicholas Cage. Finally, a double dose of Marc’s favorite things allows us to revisit a beloved sitcom of our childhood and challenge each other to a duel. In the end it’s all a matter of taste in that some of us (me) have it and some of us (people other than me) do not.
In a truly random episode, Marc and I discuss the death of innocence thanks to Elmo-gate, luckily my favorite thing this week provides a glimmer of hope for The Muppets thanks to Cee-Lo, one of the Muppetiest men in showbiz. We end the show fantasizing about a big lottery win and what that would mean for both ourselves and the podcast. Spoiler alert: It involves monkeys.
This week we learn that when it comes to scoring with the ladies it’s good to be the general, as long as you don’t use e-mail. Marc geeks out about Survivor and I talk about the new MTV show Catfish which has captured my heart. Internet dating only works if you actually start physically dating at some point people! This episode is so good it should last you for a couple of weeks while we’re off for Thanksgiving. Sorry, folks, I have a turkey to brine and Marc works in retail, ’nuff said.
Talk about your crazy random happenstances how about a hurricane/nor-easter hybrid followed by a freak snow storm? Our hearts go out to all those so royally screwed by mother nature these past few weeks and Marc and I are here for you with the funny…if you have power and a working Internet connection. There was also this national election thingy that happened apparently and Marc and I had some less than orthodox ways of deciding who got our vote for the local school boards. So before you have a meltdown as epic as Karl Rove, download, listen and laugh your cares away.
In this week’s episode, we discuss the ups and downs of living on your own and we play a round of what did Joanna hurt herself on this week. Later a discussion of our favorite things winds up with us getting political. Well, about as seriously political as anything involving Donald Trump can get. Posting from the edge of Hurricane Sandy, note the dedication!
In this week’s episode, we vent, a lot. Sorry for the hiatus but after the trials and tribulations of moving into my first apartment I’ve learned two things 1. Nothing ever goes the way you plan and 2. CABLEVISION’s OPTIMUM SUCKS! So listen in as we discuss the art of seduction as demonstrated by cable companies to get you to assume the position and just what happens once you do. We then wonder why it seems that more and more people lacking in basic interpersonal skills are taking jobs in customer service. This episode will make you face palm so hard you’ll leave a mark.
This week we get personal with some revelations regarding some of our more awkward behavior during bouts of boredom. A discussion of our favorite things for the week includes topics such as How I Met Your Mother, why some things are funnier in a tv show than real life, and the infomercial product with which I’m currently obsessed. We end with a look at the gift that keeps on giving: celebrity meltdowns.
In this week’s episode Marc and I chime in on the rash of celebrity DUIs as well as the continuing Lohan family saga. We later discuss the legitimacy of reboots vs. remakes and attempt to set some ground rules. We also agree that some movies are just sacred and should not be touched, though we may not necessarily agree which ones those are (i.e. me=Willy Wonka, Marc=Robocop).
This week we start off with a talk about the fabulous people watching at Pepboys and my discovery of a frightening new hairstyle I can only hope spreads like wildfire. We move on to our favorite things for the week which include a sign that the future is now and Marc trying to sell me on watching The X Factor. Finally, we debate the greatest high school movies of all time and why most of mine include Christian Slater and most of Marc’s include a cast member of Dawson’s Creek.
In this week’s podcast, we discuss all the joys that September brings: school, football, and new TV! A journey into the mindset of the class of 2016 (according to Beloit at least) ultimately leaves us feeling old. Later, Marc and I take a look at the new fall tv lineup, which shows we can’t wait to see and which shows we wish we could have heard pitched to television executives. Plus, our favorite things of the week!
WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT! This week’s podcast is not your granny’s podcast. Please do not gather the children round the old iPod for this one. We start off with Marc getting punked at work and move into our favorite things from the week. This leads to a discussion of cockfighting and strippers. Yes, that’s right, cockfighting and strippers. We then end with a real life fairy tale, to cleanse the palate. This episode just has to be heard to be believed.
This week Marc and I reveal a bit too much about some guilty pleasures, mainly Marc’s fondness of the Twinkles and my addiction to Dance Moms. We also pitch a cast for a Celebrity Survivor that includes B listers both young and old. Most importantly we launch a brand new segment “Favorite Things” complete with theme song!
In this week’s episode, we discover how none of us ever really leave high school while discussing the navigating the cultural wilderness at a new job. Later, we continue with a discussion of some less than scrupulous actions taken while in our youth. Hopefully, the statutes of limitation hold up, if not this podcast was for entertainment purposes only. Any and all stories are fictitious and anything resembling actual persons or events is entirely coincidental.
In our TENTH episode we breakdown the 2012 Summer Olympics in all its majesty. Marc offers suggestions to liven up the coverage of the games from a very heterosexual male point of view. I, on the other hand, attempt to defend the enigma that is Ryan Lochte. We start off however with a very joyous announcement from yours truly.
In this week’s episode, I finally get to geek out about one of my favorite subjects, cheese. We learn just how deep my love for the dairy runs. Other topics include road trips, making friends through somewhat questionable means, and which of the 7 engineering wonders of the modern world Marc despises.
In this episode Marc and I question the educational value of programs on The Learning Channel (TLC) as we explore the phenomenon that is Honey Boo Boo. We predict the next celebrity sex tape scandal and learn of my strange attraction to a certain advertising mascot.
On a very special episode of Crazy Random Happenstance Marc and I welcome a friend of ours, Rob Poole, to debate the finer points of the long awaited The Dark Knight Rises. We touch on themes such as populism, class warfare, and Anne Hathaway in leather. Plus, we all take a turn imitating Christian Bale. Thanks to Rob for taking the time to attempt to bring a touch of culture to the CRH world, hope to have you back again soon.
This week Marc geeks out over the new Spiderman and defends his love of Dawson Creek. We also discuss rebooting The Breakfast Club and I try to save Marc from the dark side that is the church of scientology. This episode is dedicated to my father, Louis Barbuscio, who passed this week. His laughter was as infectious as it was constant and he made me the lover of the funny that I am today.
In this week’s episode the crazy randomness continues as we start off with a story from our high school days, then proudly take up the sword in defense of Aaron Sorkin (Marc’s ultimate man-crush), and end up performing Mad Men-esque pitches for some of Time Magazine’s Worst Inventions. So light yourself a Lucky throw the baby in a cage and enjoy!
In this week’s episode Marc and I discuss a wide variety of disorderly conduct. We learn that Marc is the last person who should judge anyone else’s driving habits, the Jersey Shore kids influence on our local legal system, and why on any given Sunday you could arrest the entire female population of Elizabeth, NJ. There are some stupid laws on the books in NJ, and we’re not just talking about being forbidden to pump your own gas.
In our third episode, Marc and I discuss a variety of celebrity related nonsense. We take sides in this decade’s ultimate Cold War: Christian Bale vs. Leonardo DiCaprio, marvel at the wonder that is Mike Tyson, and debate whether females are funny or Adam Carolla is just still not over high school. We start off, however, with me defending my right to multitask even when driving. Silly, cell phone law.
In our second episode, Marc and I discuss the finer points of the beloved 80s T.V. series the A-Team, as we try to determine if it stands the test of time. Other highlights include bionic abilities and something that was never covered in the classic novel 101 things to do with a Dead Cat.
We’ve been featured at girlsaregeeks.com! Be nice to people in high school, kids, you just never know when that’s going to come back to you. Subscribe to it while you’re there as I will be letting my geek flag unfurl there in the future!
Here is our first ever episode! Discussion highlights include why marshmallows are best roasted on wooden utensils, just how truly mighty a sword a pen can be, and why the Red Roof Inn will never sponsor this podcast not to mention superhero lifestyle choices and Marc’s suggestion for the greatest sports movie of all time which appears no where in ESPN’s list. Hope you all have as much fun listening as we did making it and stay tuned for more!
Marc and I spent all day this past Sunday being hilarious . . . and 75% of that was actually captured digitally! Yay! Our first ever podcast will be coming soon but bare with me as I get this site up and running.
