Do you know if they make any plugins to akley australia assist with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results. If you know of any please share. Thank you! Orson Prells says: December 13, 2012 at 4:48 pm Late to the party. I just listened. Great episode, and GOD BLESS AMERICA was excellent. Bobcat is still funny as hell. About the ZOMBIE BABIES movie mentioned above: It IS a thing, and it’s on DVD and on demand and stuff. It was mentioned in Entertainment Weekly. It is a super cheap production, but there’s a lot of overlap with the ideas mentioned for ANKLEBITERS. A sequel is in production right now. AdotJdot says: June 8, 2012 at 7:35 am This is in my top 3 favorite episodes. Bobcat’s stories are hilarious. Jason says: April 28, 2012 at 11:41 pm Everyone listening should check out God Bless America,I really enjoyed it,one of the better films I’ve seen in awhile.Even the soundtrack was good. Hats of to Bobcat,a fine director,what a surprise. Carl says: April 20, 2012 at 7:30 am This has to have been one of my favorite episodes so far. Great discussions guys, and Bobcat was fantastic. M@ says: April 20, 2012 at 6:01 am The Nerdist Podcast has absolutely been on fire lately. Between this one, Morgan Spurlock, Tebacious D and Jim Gaffigan it has been pure sweet sweet goodness. It would be awesome if you could have Savage Steve Holland on the podcast. Like Chris, Better off Dead (and to a lesser extent One Crazy Summer) really shaped a lot of my comedic tastes. I have also heard rumors that Cusak did not like the film which baffles me since I would put it up there with Say Anything or High Fidelity in his filmography. SlimCharles says: April 19, 2012 at 1:04 pm Awesome episode! I really only know about Bobcat from Police Academy, so I didn’t know at all what to expect. Great episode, I laughed so hard listening to this. In front of other people! Tamara says: April 18, 2012 at 1:22 pm That was so funny. I could have listened to it all night long! Heck Roberts says: April 18, 2012 at 12:25 pm http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYokxR-KQJQ ZOMBIE BABIES already exists and there are scenes of babies crawling up into a guy’s ass. Looks like Bobcat’s trying to steal some indie filmmaker’s movie right after having a long talk about artistic integrity. Joe says: April 18, 2012 at 7:11 am I disagree that money is what made everything better at the end of ‘Back to the Future’. It was George McFly’s confidence that made everything better. Money was just an added perk brought about by his confidence to stick to his writing and become a successful author. Forkin Prank says: April 17, 2012 at 1:42 pm Apparently Mr. Thwait has seen this movie? It actually has one shot with a zombie baby giving a girl a facial after a necrotic assault. http://youtu.be/yYokxR-KQJQ Gannytron says: April 17, 2012 at 10:03 am I finally got around to listening to the Nerdist podcast. Just wondering, is it always formatted like this? Like, no introductions? I felt a little disoriented because I didn’t know how many people were in the room, and who they were, aside from Mr. Goldthwait. amysrevenge says: April 17, 2012 at 7:06 am I’m of that narrow demographic who knows Bobcat from Police Academy. Awesome show gang. Chad Opitz says: April 16, 2012 at 12:23 pm Dead Alive is brilliant and it’s awesome that that movie is a Christmas tradition in the Goldthwait household. Alex says: April 16, 2012 at 10:08 am YES! More Tom Kenney! Amanda says: April 16, 2012 at 10:06 am Yes! I was so excited to listen to Bobcat – I think I’m going to have to re-listen to this one a few times. I hope you get to interview him again, I would love to hear more about him! michelle says: April 16, 2012 at 9:31 am Hate to say that “Ankle Biters” is already an actual movie. Check out IMDB. Its from 2002 and if i remember correctly, its little people vampires???? Vincent S says: April 15, 2012 at 3:12 am OMG! That was amazing! I was laughing OUT LOUD at the absurd things that this man is telling from his life. OMG! Jesus! You, Sirs, have poured smiles in my brains. Thank you. Dee says: April 15, 2012 at 1:54 am Great, great podcast. If you ever get a chance, go see Bobcat live! His stand-up is fantastically good and he was very gracious when I approached him after the show. A++, would laugh hysterically again. Justin says: April 14, 2012 at 7:37 pm Honestly, this was one of the better Nerdist podcasts and I didn’t think it was going to be that interesting. thetart says: April 14, 2012 at 4:37 pm This was an awesome show, and I listened to it twice because I was laughing so hard I missed some stuff! Dirk Marshall says: April 14, 2012 at 2:15 pm Really enjoyable! I can’t wait for another Bobcat episode. We watched the movie last night and loved it. Thank you. Jake says: April 14, 2012 at 1:41 pm Yes Zuri! I remember that talking toy rabbit in the mind of a schizo father too. That was a great show J KingKong says: April 14, 2012 at 6:00 am LOL Porn Flanders: Cum-a-ly Lum- a- ly Zuri says: April 13, 2012 at 10:36 pm Bobcat is so funny and has depth!!!! I remember loving him from Unhappily Ever After, childhood memories! Jackfan12 says: April 13, 2012 at 9:41 pm Just saw the Bobcat special on t.v and could not stop laughing. The movie looks great and I can’t wait to see it. Matt H. says: April 13, 2012 at 9:13 pm I don’t know how you do it, but I swear that the podcast just keeps getting better and better! Even when it’s a name I don’t recognize (usually because I’m an ignorant punkass kid), I always listen, and it’s always fantastic! Three Toes of Fury says: April 13, 2012 at 8:59 pm . Howdy Yon Nerdists! 3ToF reporting live from C2E2 in Chicago…the con has started off smashingly. There’s a [email protected] Highlight of the con for me was meeting Chris…well…lets be honest..i didnt so much meet him as shout “HI CHRIS!” at him as he was signing stuff for folks at the nerdist table and then I ran off to brag to my buds that i met him. By monday i’ll have embellished the story further to the point that i’ll tell coworkers i saved Chris from nearly being pecked to death by a rage-laden platypus. Chris is incredibly nice and engaging and sincere, spending time with fellow nerdist fans before heading to his pannel and then to the Vic for tonights podcast. The guy is a class act. As for the con…one random question…have Easter Bunnies become some kind of con-meme? There were like 32 of them. Seriously. WTF? Are they the new Scary Clown? hrmmmm. Pretty f’d up. 2nd Highlight of the con…live sized Dalek at one of the Doctor Who merch booths. (Note to self..build life sized Dalek. Also..dont blink). Peace .n. Cosplay 4 Eva. 3ToF pbnews says: April 13, 2012 at 8:08 pm I saw Bobcat open for Nirvana back in the day (Nirvana’s second to last show ever, I believe)… He was obnoxious as hell and got booed off the stage (at the time, I wasn’t sophisticated enough to understand that this was the intended response). NeuroMan42 says: April 13, 2012 at 7:03 pm Stunning film from a great director. Just convinced my local Indie Theater to get the movie for May also. OK… I am on the Board of Directors, so I had an inside track in doing it. John48221 says: April 13, 2012 at 6:17 pm Bobcat? Damn! This should be an interesting show. Looking forward to hear what he’s up to.
