    Hey Scarborough Dude, Namaste!

    I just tuned into the Dick and Janes Podcast about 5 episodes ago and I'm hooked.
    As a fellow podcaster I very much apreciated your 'first to pee in the snow' segment. I was thinking to myself "Man, why didn't I think of that?" And then I realized that
    (although I never mentioned it on the show at the time) I had recorded my January 20th, episode #14, intro while taking a shit! That sounds wierd but it was early and I was drinking coffee while doing diaphramatic breathing exercises... You can kind of tell now that I mention it.
    So while I do not refute your claim- I shall make my own claim in the #2 department. Any challengers?

    P.S. Next time you feel intollerant of anything - even intollerance, recall that compasion, love and empathy for your enemies disarms them.

    Well Arthur, I hate to do this to you, after those kind words, but I'm afraid I've got you beat on Numbers One and Two! On DicksnJanes podcast #21 (posted August 20, 2005), I continued the narration of my journey thru Ontario and Quebec while taking a dump at camp. However, there were no rude sound effects, so that detracts somewhat from the claim- guess I'll have to go back and listen to yours to compare.

    I suspect I may be the "first to vomit" if this silliness keeps up -

    Enjoyed the description of your CPR days - the 'Gang' boss sounds like a type A kind of personality with a side of murder and mayhem...

    Also liked the tunes - nice one!

    Scarborough Dude said...

    Shit!! Never even thought of puking on a show! Well, there you go Arthur - that first is unclaimed, as far as I know. Go for it!!

    Todd Tyrtle said...

    Great stories as always, SD. And I liked the rant as well - fundamentalism is almost always a bad thing. Well, perhaps it wouldn't be such a bad thing if they'd just keep it to themselves. And when did Focus on the Family arrive here?! I thought I left that behind months ago.

    And sad to say, but there's someone who has y'all beat in the #2 department with his podcast here.

    Arthur Masters said...

    Oh dear.

    Keith Fox said...

    Hi dude, what a great show this week. I was totally captivated by your story working on the railroad gangs up in B.C. It was a slice of Canadiana. And I love the improved sound quality since the early days. The iRiver beats the iTalk/iPod combo hands down. Take it easy!

    Scarborough Dude said...

    Hey Keith! Great to know you're still out there listening - and can remember back to when the sound was pretty shitty... ya, that iRiver was a great investment- now one day maybe I'll get a real mike. But for now being free and mobile suits me best. Stay tuned eh...

    Hey S.Dude,
    I wrote this post on my blog about the whole cartoon issue and a bit more. Most of what I've written agrees with you. I'm irreligious.
    I like ur podcast dude. Did you hear Adam Curry read out my email on DSC 335 btw? I was quite surprised.
    Also, keep playing all of this awesome music and some more! I feel like I'm back in 95, sitting next to my dad on our living room carpet in his old house, listening to his LPs.

    and the crap goes on and on and on...

    hey, arthur and robb and todd and turdd and keithh and similee et al, get a life, eh.

    Scarborough Dude said...

    Sorry folks - guess I could just delete messages like that from our old friend 'anonymous', but hey, if they feel the need to express themselves in that way, well.... it says a lot more about anomymous than the rest of us...

    Simran said...

    yeah, who has a name like that anyway? must have had a real f*ed up childhood... :-)

    Wizzie said...

    The eponoymous Mr. Anonymous. Who he be? It's obvious: It's Mr. Prick! U been outed, boy! Love those trainarratives, Mr. Dude. And I like it when you jump the track, too. Full steam ahead, buddy.

    Scarborough Dude said...

    No way Wizzie - that ain't Prick. I always thought 'Anonymous' was a mutual friend of ours who sometimes goes by the name of Barnacle Bill, but I guess maybe I'm wrong. It'd be more fun if he/she used a real name and came up with something a little more original though. Over to you, Anonymass...

    Another great show SD!

    I too loved the railroad narrative, and it put me in mind of a time when I was doing a similar thing in Norh west England around 15 years ago.

    Tough blokes, hard work, but great times.

    Keep 'em coming mate!
