    Speaking as a forty *cough* *cough* year old, I want to know how Chris went from sudden realizations of mortality to zen mellow calm between 39 and 42…

  5. Oh, and there are not one, not two, but THREE guys from The Godfather in Rancho Deluxe.

    Dude, that Harrison Bergeron: He’s such a giver!

  7. Watching the movie Jeff mentioned – Rancho Deluxe. There is a scene were Jeff and Harry Dean are in a bar in Livingstone Montana. The band in the bar is fronted by Jimmy Buffet (who wrote the music for the movie). Jeff and Harry are wearing cowboy hats – and playing PONG.

    Lol that had to be some awesome acid he was on when the rock-face-spirit’s mouth he was sitting in was talking.

    Dude,  this podcast is getting way too good.  Are you pinching yourself Chris?  You did it bud,  take like 3 minutes off or something to celebrate.  If you can’t do it for you do it for a goat raising pot smoker in bar harbor, maine.  Or ill just do it for you 🙂  Great job guys

    • Chris Hardwick says:

      I appreciate it every day of my life! Thank you for the nice words, my goat-raising friend!
