This is a question for Ian(Olaf). On one of the episodes, there was a cover of Rage Against the Machine's "Killing In the Name Of". Who was it? Please answer soon, my life is being threatened by a curious listener. Thanks.
hey guys, great show, always a blast to listen to you... quick question, on ep.30 (starburst) you played a song about midway through by a girl, something about money doesn't weigh a lot or something like that. i can not track this thing down, please give me some info on it or her. thanks!
It’s called “Dance Area” by Dawn Landes (dawnlandes.com). Tell her you found the song on MATES. She’s a friend of the show. More song credits here: http://matescast.tumblr.com/credits -Ian
How long does MATES plan on running with this 'Will they or won't they?' plot line? Obviously the two of you have great sexual chemistry, but so many shows have been ruined by dragging on this sort of thing. I just hope that if you get together, you stay together, as the viewers have a lot invested in your potential relationship.
You are exactly right, and we want you to know that we take you seriously, Aaron Sorkin.
I find it a bit remiss that you two haven't dedicated an episode to the memory of the late Slim-Jim spokesman Randy Savage. I realize you're still bitter about the ticker-tape parade, but I would think such professionals as yourselves(especially those of you who are skilled enough to be touted as Yogi-laureates) would take a moment to recognize the memory of such a trailblazer.
First off, you two fine gentleman are making history in the snack game. Years from now, historians will look back and see MATES as the even that started the snacking revolution that is upon. Now onto the question of the hour. Ever since the inception of MATES, I've been curious as to when exactly does a snack become a meal? Does finishing an entire bag of Lays still constitute a snack?
I discovered the greatest snack combo that's gonna blow Martha or whoever from Cape Cod's snack choice out of the water. Eat Oh Boy O'Berto's pepper beef jerky with an ice cold coca-cola, preferably in the 20oz plastic bottle.
We’d thank you, but you already threw out a “you’re welcome”, so it seems unnecessary .
I'm not sure where to suggest a wacko snacko so I'm doing it here!
Ritz crackers + frosting.
I know it sounds just terrible for you, but if you get the ratio right, the deliciosity far outweighs the guilt. I recommend "Pillsbury® Creamy Supreme Cream Cheese" flavor but that's only because that's the only frosting I've tried in this combination. For all I know there are LITERALLY a few flavors that could be good.
Also because I tried this only due to a severe onset of depression after a bad break up, I'd recommend you guys break up with your wives for the full effect.
Dear Ranger Smith and i love the 80"s guy.
I am a loyal viewer of your podcast, i know i am not a viewer.
i have a suggestion for your wonderful podcast. and it is the delicious, classic Reese's cup.
thank you in advance your friend Terry Day
I see someone has already asked this, but I want reiterate that you guys pick some very nice interludial songs and I'd love to know what bands are making those songs. Particularly the Toblerone episode had a lovely interludial song. You may use the word "interludial" if you'd like, which I've just created. Think of it as a gift.
Lot of homegrown bands from here in NYC. Olaf the genius. Don’t sue us when we use your word.
Development on the Oatmeal Creme Pies suggestion, which I'm sure you've been anxiously anticipating (since the oatmeal creme pie game is a consistently adapting and transfiguring one): there's this thing called a "big pack." Or maybe it's called something else, but I am too lazy to check this on, like, the internet or in my own kitchen or something. NOT ONLY do you get more(?) pies, BUT they are HUGE. YOU MUST/COULD LOOK INTO THIS.
why not orville redenbacher's microwave popcorn???
LOVE your podcast! Great analogies and tidbit on Canada. I am an ignorant American and really have no clue about Canada! Thank you for the great insight on snacks and the education!
This is not a question, but I thought Mike would enjoy this...I am a huge Dave Matthews fan and was just watching a documentary on the band (yes, I have no life), and at a show on April 4th, 1992, Dave himself (!) introduced the band as THE Dave Matthews Band. So I think if he can do it, you should be able to on Twitter, even if it's not the official name. Oh, and Tom, stop pretending you don't like Dave!
I cast aside your "rolls-royce" of ice cream, and suggest, instead, Graeter's french-pot style ice cream. If you do some research, you will discover that this is the densest ice cream available. I would send you some, but I'm waiting until I become a semi-successful tv actor and get a few royalty checks. You thought you'd had ice-cream, but you haven't. This one goes up to 11.
Have you covered Freezer Pops yet? If not, no time like the sweaty,hot-as-hell present! Actually, I just want to hear how you'll handle it if one of you sucks the melting pop down the wrong pipe, which is a common hazard of this treat. I wish you no harm, just for entertainment's sake, ya know?
I'm also upset that Shreddies aren't sold in the US. Do CHEX work as a substitute?
No! Hell NO! Do NOT substitute Chex for Shreddies. Madness lies that way. Do what i do. Go to Canada every few months, fill a U-Haul with Shreddies, and when they stop you at the border and ask what you have in the U-Haul, reply “Shreddies”.
hi, i was at a Stella shows about 3 years ago.
DO YOU REMEMBER ME?
also i see you on tv all the time do you remember me from there? i yelled at you all last night when you were talking about planes.
also if this is tom answering questions, i liked you in scrubs and had no idea you were in anything else! glad to see things are going well with yogi bear and all!~
Hey guys. I just wanted to spew some knowledge in your face. I'm listening to the Bugler podcast for the second time, and I think when they say, "All other snacks are pointless" on the bag, there's a second meaning of no other snack has a cone type shape that comes to a point. Nah mean? Have a good podcast byeeee.
You are right. Consider this knowledge spewed all over Magic’s face.
I have a snack suggestion for you. It's a little wacko but delicious. Eat ramen noodles (preferably chicken) but don't cook them. crush the dry noodles up in the bag, then open. pour in the powder seasoning then shake the bag to season the dry noodles. Then snack away on a delicious crunchy treat.
Graham, we have taken this one to the staff to vote on, because most of them live on Ramen noodles a s a MEAL. There is a lot of anger over here.
Have you ever considered some kind of 'Man vs. Food'-style challenge? I would love to see Mike and Tom face off in a snacking battle royale! (I'd also like to throw in an additional request for Totino's Pizza Rolls, which are responsible for 90% of my BMI.)
