Where's My Faux-rarri, B*tch?!

WHERE’S MY FLYING CAR:
In this segment we talk about something that should be a thing but isn't yet a thing, as far as we know. Like the flying car. Today Jason wanted more of an improvement than something entirely new. I can go downtown and purchase Kalvin Klein, Dolce & Gadanna, and Louise Vuitton? Where’s my Fauxrarri, Mercebes or Lamdoghini? Make it happen people.
PRODUCER NICK SXSW PICKS:
Producer Nick has been helping us all out with our SXSW picks. After carefully scouring the bands, Nick gives us his expert opinion on who to see and where to go for some of the hottest (maybe not) secret shows, from !!! to Harouki Zombi and everything in between. Check out our podcast for all the insider music tips you can’t afford to miss, including the BEST band of SXSW, Why? Why indeed. Thanks Nick!
SXSW SO FAR:
Jason and Deb shared some of the best and worst of their SXSW experiences so far. Jason got to see Dave Grohl at the keynote address for SXSW Music and couldn’t resist snapping a pic. Unfortunately his fortune couldn’t last and he had to wait a whole hour to fulfill his dreams of seeing Paramore live. Deb didn’t have a good evening last night after an unsuccessful attempt to see Japandroids. Secret coins, multiple lines and a failed “Hey I’m from the radio, you should let me in” resulted in a swift exit.
WHOSE TWEET IS IT ANYWAY:
In today’s edition of the Twitter Game, we played “people who have their own clothing lines” – Rihanna, Amanda Bynes, and our man, Ryan Lochte. Jyea. One lucky listener whose name we’re not sure of won our Fado Irish Pub prize pack including FIP tickets to this Sunday’s St. Paddy’s Day celebrations with a live broadcast and many other goodies. Congratulations! Come out this Sunday and join Jason & Deb between 11am and 2pm.
PET OF THE WEEK:
We're all about supporting animal charities, and bringing you the happiness of animals in your own home. So you should check out our friends at Love-A-Bull, who are currently looking for a home for Tiggy, who has clearly lived with a family before, and she wants to be part of yours now. She's very well trained around dogs and people. Give her and the other adopt-a-bulls a look here.
I LOVE YOU CALL:
At 8:50 Deb calls a random business and tries to get the person answering the phone to say, “I love you.” Three loveless days had left Deb feeling pretty cynical about today’s call to Pulaski Animal Hospital in Chicago. Fortunately, the helpful Gibby did not only provide useful information, but when it came down to it, she also provided some love.
DOES DEB KNOW STUFF:
Every day we “trivialize” Deb by asking her quiz questions, then laughing when she doesn’t know the answers. Today’s trivia was on people named Pope. Deb’s trivial knowledge did not meet our caller’s expectations and so Caller X won tickets to Teagan & Sarah and a Fado Irish Pub prize pack including a pair of FIP (Fado Important Person) passes to this weekend’s St. Paddy’s Day.
We’ve got ourselves a new pope everyone! Jorge Bergoglio of Argentina, a vocal conservative, was elected last night as the 266th pope of the Catholic Church and has taken the name of Pope Francis I. He succeeds Pope Benedict XVI At 76, he’s no spring chicken and had previously stepped down as Archbishop of Buenos Aires sighting advanced age. Bergoglio is the first non-European since the 8th century and the first pope from the Americas. More importantly though, he looks uncannily like George Bluth from Arrested Development.
A car lost control last night, flipping off of the I-35 frontage road and hitting 18 cars at South Point Hyundai, Austin. The incident occurred at 1:38am and miraculously the driver got out and fled the scene. Service and Parts Director Mark Marek said, "some of the roofs are torn off. Other cars have battery acid on them. Some of the front ends are smashed in.” The cause of the crash is still unknown and investigations are ongoing.
The late Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez, is not going to be embalmed for permanent viewing. The decision to do so was made too late and his body was not “properly prepared” in time.
Amsterdam’s oldest prostitutes are calling it quits and retiring from the business they’ve been in for a combined 100 years. Twin sisters, Martine and Louise Fokkens, 70, estimate in the 50 years of prostituting themselves, they’ve slept with close to 355,000 men. That works out to almost 10 men a day, every day, for 50 years each.
The Big XII basketball tournament is under way. The Longhorns’ only chance to get into the NCAA tournament is if they win the Big XII. After a victory last night, UT is finally back at 500 with a 16-16 record; however, it’s still very unlikely that they’ll be able to pull off a victory.
LeBron James and the Miami Heat won against the 76ers, 98-94, making them the 4th team ever to win 20 consecutive games in a season. The Heat joins the ranks with the LA Lakers, the Houston Rockets, and Milwaukee Bucks. Speaking of the Lakers, Kobe Bryant is off for injury after severely spraining his left ankle. The spokesman for the team said that they don’t know how long he’ll be out for.
