This is just a small taste of the show overall, the bits and bobs that I found interesting, funny, insightful and relevant. To hear everything that happened, check out the podcast of today's show. However, if you're looking for a quick read along with random self inserts and my personal thoughts, you've come to the right place.

Call in Point:

(This is the broadstroke canvas on which I base my call, obviously these notes are going to be longer and more detailed.)

Well, it was bound to happen and luckily it occurred on a Thursday because we can taste the sun soaked weekend and Angi is definitely going to need some drinks. It's been a while since we had a good Angi explosion on this show but that powder keg of rage that has laid dormant became an exploding volcano after an incident at her new home, Floptopia. Now, I've goofed on her house already for the pigeon prison next door and the portals to hell in her closet floor but this new addition takes the proverbial cake. In fact, the latest problem is so bad, Angi almost called the cops but they would have just been witnesses for the brutal beatdowns her and Jay the Straight were set to deliver on the builder of her house. So Floptopia, Angi's forever home until she retires to The Villages in Florida is a two story nightmare that literally offers heaven and hell depending on which floor you're on. If you're looking for a true Circle of Hell experience, stay on the lower floor where it's so cold, icicles form on bare feet. If you want to experience the sun without actually visiting it, go to the upper floor where it's so hot, you'll lose ten pounds from sweating. If the descriptive points don't help, the bottom floor where the bedrooms are is 62 degrees and the top floor is roughly 75 degrees. Since Floptopia is a new building, the person who constructed this prison is responsible to fix any issues, like these, within the first year (it's been like 3+ months since she moved in.) They have been out already four times (keep in mind how long she's been living there) to tinker around and attempt to fix the issue but it only keeps getting worse. Yesterday, visit number four, the builder of the house came with the HVAC people and together they spent an hour tinkering around. Angi was excited but when the builder came to talk to Jay the Straight, things took a turn for the "uh oh." Since the bottom floor is uninhabitable due to lack of heating, the constructor had a solution. He suggested that the suffering couple (who'd ever assume I'd say both of them were suffering) throw shoeboxes on the vents upstairs to make the heat go down. Butthole the Builder then followed up by suggesting they put space heaters behind the walls with knobs sticking out. Enraged, furious, mad as hell, Angi thought to herself "what, are we going to then put fans in the windows during the summer!" This is obviously not an acceptable solution which Jay the Straight pointed out but that only made Butthole the Builder get mad as he was accused of screwing up. He proceeded to go in on Jay the Straight saying it was simple physics (it's not) and you can't change physics (you can) while getting a bit too close for comfort. This completely escalated to Angi getting ready to dial 91 as the builder put his finger in Jay the Straight's face and said "you want to get confrontational, we can get confrontational." This was followed by more "aggressive" language and speaking over Jay the Straight. It finished with him saying that "space heaters are the only solution and that he was going to be right and Jay/Angi were going to be f****d." They proceeded to then throw Butthole the Builder and his HVAC lackies out of the house because Jay the Straight was (rightfully) steamed and Angi was shaking with anger/upset. Angi went to bed later but still woke up furious and sought advice from our roadies on how to remedy the situation. Joe hit up the Request Line and said it sounds like serious ductwork issues and that she needs to get a reputable HVAC guy to check things out because there should not be a 13 degree difference between floors. He pointed out that Butthole the Builder used his own guys to save money and that the system might be wrong. Chris followed up and said Joe was right and made plans with Angi to come see him and help remedy the situation. Dominick agreed with the other two guys and said the ductwork is wrong and that she should look into a zoning system.

Other Stuff from Today's Show:

Right, it's Rage Thursday as shown in Angi's anger piece from above so let's keep that train rolling into the Daily Discussion Topic. While Marris and Angi were in the iHeart kitchen, Bioncé from V103 happened to be there as Angi discussed how ignorant builders bring the madness out in her. She chimed in that disrespect and calling you stupid makes her crazy. The perfect example of someone telling you the sky is yellow when it's clearly blue and no matter how you argue it, they won't hear it. So we have a simple question today, what brings out the psycho in you. As mentioned before on the show (and felt on occasion for me,) brown liquor sends Angi into rage territory. Something about it messes with her DNA, causes her to become irritated, nitpick and then eventually black out. As for Marris, he is usually the calm and rational one but if you push buttons by coming for his friends and family, he will flip the F out. Prison Tattoo is totally definitely in no way a psycho and to prove that, you should never attempt to ghost him because it's not like anything bad would happen if you did but just don't. Honestly, everything irks me so picking one thing probably doesn't make sense so let's just go right to the Request Line. Bayley said that any time any looks too long at her husband or touches him, it's on. After all, how long can a woman allow a gaze to be set on her husband before the hoops come off? He basically has to explain that hitting on him should just lead to walking away because it's for their safety. This also led to an explanation that girls are slicker than guys when it comes to copping a peek. Head Roadie Troy is a Jack Daniels Fire kind of guy in that it makes him fight and even when he's thrown to the ground several times, he assumes it's his clothes allowing it to happen so he'll get naked and go back for another round assuming he won't get tossed to the ground. Walter said a line of ten people asking the same question even though the person before them heard the answer prior. He's a teacher so kids and parents alike fall into this mess. Eric said being disrespected or disrespecting someone which made a bad boss at work caused him to see red. Plenty of trips to HR for that one. Jeff is also on the brown liquor train so he picked people driving slow in the left lane. Mike said the grocery store, all those cattle grazing in aisles, not moving their carts or talking on their phones and bumping into people. Angi, known hater of grocery shopping said Instacart was created for her and Mike.

Now, we've tackled angry things but it's Thursday and it will be nice enough out so let's rein it in some. A thread over on Reddit caught Angi's eye when someone explained an obvious thing that might have gone over our heads. For example, "this little piggy went to the market" does not mean they were going to stock up for the week but actually that particular toe was being sent to the slaughter. Another was how the judicial system works with a person assuming that bail money was not given back. This was something that Angi did not know but Prison Tattoo was aware of due to everyone's favorite (see: gross) bounty hunter Dog. Metal music is referred to because it is harder than rock music. This was the one that sent Marris into coming undone territory because it was so stupid yet so simple. Metal is harder than rock, duh. "Goodbye" came from "God be with you" was not known by the studio crew but that was in my useless well of knowledge. "Howdy" came from "how do ye?" was another non known factoid. Pipe cleaners are not only for crafting but also for tobacco pipe cleaning. Obviously, this one was clearly the easiest to know that they were created for more than something silly. Reindeer are not mythical creatures and they do exist (though one with a glowing red nose is definitely not real.) The "Mad" in Mad Men stands for Madison Avenue. "Felix" is the Latin word for "lucky" so Felix the Cat being a black cat is a tongue in cheek irony. Bats are not blind, they just have poor eyesight. Someone didn't know that Mickey Mouse was a mouse even though that is in his name (please don't let that person vote anymore.) They figured that he was some type of dog which is what Goofy is (and he, as we pointed out, dates a cow.)

Finally, for reasons that sound incredibly stupid, Marris wants to visit Nebraska one day, something about Big 10 football. As for Prison Tattoo, Nebraska is on his "delete it" list and he will never go there again and he would prefer that it was wiped off the map. He once dated someone from Nebraska for a year and a half and that whole state is done now due to it. The reason we're talking about the former bottom of the list state that no one wanted to go to is they decided to change their tourism slogan. Initially, it was "Nebraska, honestly it's not for everyone" but apparently that is over due to shelf life and times changing. Though it was snarky and funny enough to lift them up 9 places in the ranks of visitation, a new one is coming soon at some point because the governor is not a fan. What we're saying is that perhaps if you have something that is working and great, why go and change it up to the unknown.

Request Wars 3.0

Current Champion: Marris (2x)

Angi's Song Choice: “Sabotage” by Beastie Boys

Marris' Song Choice: "Boom" by P.O.D.

Winner: Marris

10 O' Clock Toast:

Toastee: Prozac, Zoloft, Celesta and Wellbutrin

These four meds (that you probably shouldn't be chasing with alcohol) get the toast today for being the stabilizers needed for Angi and Jay the Straight to keep yesterday's nightmare scenario from turning into a bloodbath. Ten years ago, things might have been different but with them and the roadies, who are our remedy, we are in the best places in our life.
