Due to circumstances beyond our control there will be no “live” shows on August 8th, and August 15th. We will return on August 22nd at 7PM Eastern to bring you what will be possibly the greatest show of any kind ever anywhere at any time, and we never exaggerate.
This episode features the all XY set of Spike On The Mic regulars. The lovely and talented Steve, Clark, Bill, Spike, and P.W. (pictured here). In a show that is certain to win us a Peabody, we cover Moms Mabley, Harry Bonafellow, our brushes with Grapenuts, Dog Doo DNA, Will Smiff, Racism, Reffitution, why Steve wears an “Age Cap”, why Bill lost his marbles in jail, and why the cast will eventually be turned into diamonds. When Samuel Morse sent that first telegraph message… “What hath God wrought?” THIS is what he was talking about.
This show features our normal lovely and talented cast and crew, live from Pinchasers at 4847 North Armenia Ave in Tampa, Florida. But this week we are joined by special guests, comedians Colin Means and Zac Townsend, authors of The Hungover Achiever website. One of the things that make these two guys so special to us is the way they so naturally show us no respect at all. Particularly impressive (and appreciated) was the way they concentrated on the sartorial elegance of Steve “The Voice of Reason”. Otherwise we yanked injured accident victims out of their cars, started Go-Fund-Me pages, robbed a small New Mexico town where the law enforcement are convicted felons who can’t carry guns… you know… regular stuff.
Besides the normal gang of lovely and talented miscreants we are joined by the lovely and talented Estee (pictured to the left of Spike). Right off the bat our wheels go off the track and they never seem to get back on. To be consistent though, Spike still gets his chromosomes confused. Spike begins a topic by asking us if we remember Kim Davis, and then starts a topic that she has nothing to do with. But Dr. Captain Clark does refuse to marry people who wear sandals, and who can blame him? After a moment of silence Spike tells the story of “grieving Almendef Efferelle” which eventually turns into a Spike 2 Peace Theater episode in which Clark and P-Dub are gay parents of an 18 year old daughter. This gives P-Dub the long awaited opportunity to mention “The Pirates of Penzance”. Of course we finish with another impossible to follow game show.
I know we’ve said it before but this could be the most confusing show ever. We are not even sure who’s on it because not everyone was here when we started it. It starts out with a guy who wants his money back when his girlfriend breaks up with him for not wanting to get married. Spike then introduces a new segment called “What’s Good On The Mic?” which is a story about a woman named Siri, Sherry, or Yuri that does something nice. It concludes with all of us agreeing it was nice. Great segment! We then play our worst game ever, and Bill Schmotz wins it because he didn’t have to sit through the show prior to that and his mind was clear. After Clark announces “White Guys In Plaid” playing at the Straz, things get really serious. This show will be clearly marked so that no one can claim it was an accident.
This show features our lovely and talented regulars, Clark, Steve, Bill, P-Dub, and of course Spike. But this time the feminine side gets represented by a pair of lovely and talented guests, Roxanne Wilder and Dr. Gina Midyett of “Rx For Love & Success“. Within minutes the good doctor teaches us to water our own flowers. And within minutes of that Bill Schmotz somehow gets us to be talking about “teats”. I don’t know how he does it. As if that wasn’t strange enough the talk turns to bras (but oddly not from teats). But wait… wait until you hear the “Voice of Reason” in action. Find out why we suddenly have new found respect for Steve.
This show feature all our “normal” cast members with the addition of the lovely and talented Billie, and the subtraction of the lovely and talented Dr. Captain Clark. This may be the most disorganized (classic) show ever. 12 minutes in we decided to start over, and this time transmit audio. The first topic had to do with an NBA cheating theory that allowed the “Clavaneers” to win. From there we moved on to the subject of #OrlandoStrong which morphed into “The Best of The Spike Of The Mic Show”. Spike introduces a new game which he calls… “The Price Usta Be Right – Fifty/Fifty – Smack or Whack“. Eventually, the last part is revised to “Snack or Whack” without making any more sense. This is the least thought out of any game Spike didn’t think out. Part of this episode’s show title came from when he said to the listeners in the chat room, “If you two at home want to join this madness and this falalaking…“. Due to problems with “stoppage time” we kind of blend into the “Men With Mustaches Show” normally heard after ours.
This week is an “enjoyful event” with the fewest voices in a long time. Only Spike, plus the lovely and talented Bill Schmotz, Steve, and P-Dub populate the panel. And yet we continue to cover important topics like… Should we cancel the cruise just because one passenger died? Or… What would you do if you were shortchanged a penny? We talk about the T.S.A. profiting from money left behind by passengers. Spike asks the burning question, “What’s more than 765,000?” No seriously, he asks that. We cover wether Cracker Jack should have better prizes. We get flushed AND hung up on. A woman who spent the first 40 years of her life deaf has her hearing restored and now can’t stand the sound of her husband. And yet we still have time to play the birthday challenge. This show has already been given a place in the Museum of Podcasting.
In attendance are the lovely and talented Clark, P-Dub, Bill Schmotz, Steve (the reason we’re all here), and John “Wesley” Johnson III. The first topic Spike calls “Mother Hubbard All Over Again” (but he actually means a different nursery rhyme). According to Spike “The Health Minister of Population is saying that they are trying to combat the apopolictic decline in the county’s birf rate in Italy”. In the topic he calls “What celebrity made being bald cool?” He says, “Let’s take a show poo!” Luckily we don’t. He also asks, “Yul Brennan… wasn’t he the guy who said Moses and the Heebro Lights wanna be doin’ some stuff?” and “Who came first, Issac or Mike?” We discuss something shiny that writes itself and wether we want to be fired in person, on the phone, or after the summer is over. I assure you, once you actually listen to this show you still won’t understand any of it.
Our regular cast of characters is joined by the lovely and talented Billie and the un-uglier Jessie Stehlik (of “Happily Ever Caffeinated“). As “Turtle Talk” says in the chatroom… “This is confusing”. Topic #1 Spike calls “Paper Or Plastic.” It’s about New York trying to encourage people to use re-usable shopping bags. But what we actually learn is that Spike thinks “Europe is a 3rd world country”. Topic #2 Spike calls, “Don’t Hold Your Breff. It’s Only A Test.” Apparently Spike thinks that people shouldn’t have colored gas. This problem is solved when “Mapadmin” (in the chatroom) recommends using Febreze. Topic #3 is “Totally Useless Facts”. Maximum possible score is 7 points. Minimum possible score is 8 points. Yet the winner receives 84 points, because nothing rhymes with “munf”. The new Spike On The Mic mascot is a caterpillar that can fire it’s poop great distances, much like the show itself. This show was fired several feet.
