Big Tubs

Big Tubs

2021-02-2637:21

Opportunity: Radical Proximity should be an immersive experience. First off: this is not a cult, okay? Look, if an Aerie of Randies is a little hot under the collar and wants to be stone soup with some other hard-working men, who are you to judge? The good news is we're probably already available in your neighborhood, so just flag down the apologetic lady in the Shriner car, and she will be more than happy to top off your wing sauce and freshen up your straw. Everybody ready? Are you ready?! Because…hmmmmmmmmmmmmm… "WHOOP-sie!"

Five of a Kind

Five of a Kind

Opportunity: Your bar may be unfinished, but your cassette deck is definitely done. Editor: Paul O’Mara (Be sure to check out the YouTube video (https://youtu.be/6rppgALHrSA) via this episode's show notes (https://www.californiaking.org/21). It's way better that way.)

Opportunity: home is where you hang your backpack stay at home https://files.fireside.fm/file/fireside-uploads/images/2/25ae8b6b-86ed-4952-bb55-3c077517b85e/hikFJeKs.jpeg Editor: Paul O’Mara (Be sure to check out the YouTube video (https://youtu.be/eeTk8pZLbGE) via this episode's show notes (https://www.californiaking.org/19).

Interregnum

Interregnum

2020-12-0538:47

Opportunity: who arted? In the liminal space between life and performance, there exists a certain hallway. Editor: Paul O’Mara (Be sure to check out the YouTube video (https://youtu.be/Wg0wl7F7Sk0) via this episode's show notes (https://www.californiaking.org/19). It's way better that way.) Interregnum - YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wg0wl7F7Sk0)
Opportunity: There's no "I" in "mistake." Let's be honest. If you had to do it all over again? Yeah, you'd probably do even worse. I mean. Look at you. No, seriously, it's fine. Well. It's not "fine," but it is universal, and that's ultimately where the big money is. So, the question becomes, what if you could do worse better? Again. You won't, but that's not the point. The point is, you're ready to commit to change, or at least the appearance of commitment. But, you won't figure that out until you land on the big balloon in Act III. But, let's not get ahead of ourselves. How would you feel about a face tattoo of a foot? Or a foot tattoo of a murder tear? Or a night on a futon that practically screams "hand stuff?" Let me start over. Hi. Have you ever avoided a mistake that, in retrospect, you really wish you'd made? Yeah. Also: sorry about your contact lens. Also, also: sorry about Austin. Just…sorry.

Lobster Roll Bounce

Lobster Roll Bounce

2020-10-2340:30

Opportunity: sometimes, the best couple skate is the one you skate alone. Listen: it's your room now. Mr. Sandwich is only here to act as a guide. And, while vaping is not encouraged, Ms. Menounos will be happy to repair your phone screen at Booth M5605 (Mezzanine). Simply agree to corkage, and our monster will be happy to top off your corn. Thanks, and enjoy the show. (Be sure to check out the YouTube video (https://youtu.be/E2ezh6l7Jrg) via this episode's show notes. It's way better that way.)

Big Money

Big Money

2020-10-0834:151

Opportunity: Improve the quality and reliability of online ratings systems with the assistance of little Philipe and a VHS tape of the pain you've caused. There’s a 2½ star Popeye’s in Tracy, and a 5-star Taco Bell in Pacifica with thousands of ratings, but who’s rating the raters? Perhaps reviewers will think twice if they know that they might have to repeat those comments to the proprietor’s sad child (rental or leasing options available). Go ahead and unzip your wallet. Is it full of receipts? Open a Window™ and let those money ghosts fly away—you never know what ID card or student photo is waiting just around the corner. Your keyring: do you still have the keys to the car you drove as a toddler? Go ahead and slide those off. Sure you might break a fingernail—hold onto that, it’s a happy memory of your newfound freedom you might want to bequeath to a friend one day. Grab your satchel full of California quarters and your wallet full of tiny bills. Let's mint a new you.

History Mall

History Mall

2020-09-2532:29

Opportunity: an immersive journey inside of another immersive journey. When Hobbes first stipulated that Man's primal instinct naturally reverts to a state of mall against mall, he probably had no idea how prescient he barely was. But, what if History could also be a lively if self-referential retail and fast-casual dining experience? What if, indeed, that food court were presided over by a period-appropriate "judge" who deliberately attracted fleas and never broke kayfabe to admit that Wu-Tang Clan even exists? Well, steel your guts and pack your butts, because your reality is about to get deeply augmented by some really upsetting contextual tableaux. Like it or not, you've got the music in you. At least for now. (Be sure to check out the YouTube video (https://youtu.be/o2LltsnVk_4) via this episode's show notes. It's way better that way.) History Mall - YouTube (https://youtu.be/o2LltsnVk_4)
Opportunity: a destination holiday you just can't wait to leave. Isn't it finally time for fun Dads to get their dream vacation? Just submit your dossier, pack your toilet, and get ready for some long-overdue Aloha. Please be sure to include any specific skills you'd like to see complimented, all relevant dietary restrictions, plus painfully detailed notes outlining your position on clowns.

2020-09-0427:41

Opportunity: monetize the admittedly thin line between jape and assault. There's a party in the boy's room, and you're invited. Your Scoutmaster is here to encourage wholesome habits and gently dissuade you from doing your business in a swim suit. So, c'mon in. (Be sure to check out the YouTube video (https://youtu.be/nvDZtlHGGgE) via this episode's show notes. It's way better that way.) C.A.

Mr. Fahrenheit's Here

Mr. Fahrenheit's Here

2020-08-2133:15

Opportunity: turbocharge your brand influence with these mind-blowing tricks. Listen. Sometimes, we all need a little help. Maybe you broke a gear tooth or even a toe. Maybe, you just can't remember whether Hegel played Dr. Who or Elvin Tibideaux or Harry Bentley. Our highly-trained Crossperts™ are standing by to "help." Perhaps not in the way that you want, but, definitely in the way that you need. Now take off your shoes and peel this fruit. We will be taking a lot photos but probably won't put them on the internet. (Be sure to check out the YouTube video (https://youtu.be/ca_XDFnanQI) via this episode's show notes.

Opportunity: A man, a plan, a canal, Erie! What is it going to take for me to put you on this ship today? Revive the recycling economy, and pick up your own slightly stained "Dirty Venice" tee. Not the golf kind. Although, you can buy that too. Also, please be circumspect about the buffet, and always be guided by the advice of your new assistant, Ray-Ray. If you need anything, just flag down Suzie, and please do have your checkbook ready. You're really going to need it. (Be sure to check out the YouTube video (https://youtu.be/fAtLl_Y0DUw) via this episode's show notes. It's way better that way.) Livin' Barge - YouTube (https://youtu.be/fAtLl_Y0DUw)
Lincoln Bedroom

Lincoln Bedroom

2020-08-0137:192

Opportunity: medical appliances that go ham. In these challenging, sexy times, your industry is probably suffering a grave synergy crisis. Maybe it's time to accept that there's no box to think outside of. So, drop a coin in the bed, and strap this apparatus on your hog. It's for "health," okay? We’re not here to judge. (Be sure to check out the YouTube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZgW7g2HP-0) via this episode's show notes. It's way better that way.) Lincoln Bedroom - YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZgW7g2HP-0)
Opportunity: sometimes, inspiration can be a breath of fresh steam. Just because we can't be "near" each other doesn't mean we can't enjoy an intimate environment. Whether that's a museum on the Mall, or an antiqued vivarium in the woods, or even just a very large hat that you share with good friends. But, let's also address a uniquely male pain that is neither here nor there. Time to dump out that box, slap on some rusty gears, and steady your gimbal load. This week, You Look Nice Today will spit on your comb and drop a half-penny into a strangely erotic new entertainment apparatus. Mr. Twain will see you now.

Straits of Sandwich

Straits of Sandwich

2020-07-1735:121

Opportunity: one man's plank is another man's treasure chest. Now, more than ever, many Americans hunger for travel and adventure—while some yearn merely to be something besides an American. Well, your time has arrived, so, come aboard! We're expecting you. Our consultants and child-lawyers are available to review your preferences in party water, urban poultry admiralty, and the complex and often unnavigable seas of local garb and maritime headgear. Serf's up. So, plant your running shoes in a new land, and show that childless Halloween family that you're the Captain now. (Be sure to check out the YouTube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5HMMyOoB8cc) via this episode's show notes. It's way better that way.)

Opportunity: appreciation is the ultimate adaptogen. Do you suffer from moderate to severe dyschlamydia? Still stalled on your first set of braces? Tired of stuck-up "health doctors" always acting like they're the boss of you? Well. Check your mailbox. Now, remove the contents and fill 'er up to your level of satisfaction. Okay, just a little more. Litttttle more, and…perfect. Our representatives are standing by to review your case, accept your virtual confession, and answer any of the questions your wife might have about your invoice.* yours in health, —s. https://files.fireside.fm/file/fireside-uploads/images/2/25ae8b6b-86ed-4952-bb55-3c077517b85e/hlgZndqN.png (Be sure to check out the YouTube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLpd2Npn0Aw) via this episode's show notes.
