BRACKET OF RI-DICK-ULOUSNESS RESULTS REVEALED:
In our third year of March Madness bracketeering, our topic was the one and only, Jason Dick, and the ridiculous things that he fills the air with on a regular basis. After 5 sessions of intense debate by our panel of “experts” we reached a decision. The final four came down to a number 3 seed, Rapping on stage with Vanilla Ice, the number 13 seed, Dream of the Nineties, a 5 seed, Jason being a pussy, and a 1 seed, Bee bopping. And the winner…. Bee bopping! Congratulations to listener Tim! His bracket came the closest to ours so he won a fabulous prize*. You can see the full set of results here. Also don't forget to check out our bonus NSFW podcasts for the bracket breakdown and more uncensored Jason & Deb, available FREE online and via iTunes. *prizes not always fabulous.
ALEX’S TWITTER FELLOWSHIP UPDATE:
Producer Alex has been on a mission, a mission to increase his twitter fellowship. The strategy so far has been to post the “Hot Cass Pic of the Day.” These are pictures of ex-Sorority Intern, Cassandra, who just so happens to be a very attractive lady. So far it doesn’t seem to be paying off that well but a great opportunity came up yesterday during a remote. Alex had gone to a meet and greet event with Two Door Cinema Club at a salon, with the whole band getting mani/pedis. His tweet and picture was re-tweeted by the band and has 164 retweets and 277 favorites. You’d think this would make Alex’s twitter follows sky rocket, but no. So far, 10. What the hell?! If you don’t follow Alex, what’s wrong with you?
YOU AUTO-COMPLETE ME:
Google can be a cocky SOB sometimes, always acting like it knows what you want to search for, and in You Auto-Complete Me, Jason & Deb compete, guessing how Google will auto-complete Producer Alex’s picks. Today, listeners were playing for tickets to see Mumford & Sons playing at the Austin360 Amphitheater on June 8th and 9th. Deb brought her google-game with her today so lucky listener Yessenia got the tickets.
DANNY BOYLE & TRANCE:
Danny Boyle joined us on the show today to tell us more about his latest film, Trance, starring James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel, and Rosario Dawson. A fine art auctioneer mixed up with a gang joins forces with a hypnotherapist to recover a lost painting. As boundaries between desire, reality and hypnotic suggestion begin to blur the stakes rise faster than anyone could have anticipated. Trance is in theaters now. You can check out the trailer below:
MOVIE ETIQUETTE FOR COUPLES:
Do you have to check-in with your significant other before you go see a movie? Deb was in the mood for a movie last night and had settled on the new Evil Dead, the only problem, her boyfriend has already gone on his own to see it without asking her. Is that ok? What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
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.” Today Deb called Nehs Family Vision Center in Wisconson. Yolanda was helpful but brief and when it came time for love, she hung up without even a goodbye. Deb was reassured by a listener though who called to say that it's a Wisconson thing to just hang up.
DOES DEB KNOW STUFF:
Every day we “trivialize” Deb by asking her quiz questions, then laughing when she doesn’t know the answers. Today we tested Deb on "old guy baseball announcer" trivia. After a strong start, Deb used up her knowledge of one announcer but it didn't matter as caller Cory played the game right and won tickets to go see Justin Furstenfeld next Friday, April 19th at the Paramount Theater.
The Google Maps streetview car has busted many a couple doing the dirty, but most of the time, this has been by accident. Not the case with a couple in Australia. After spotting the street photographing car, the pair sped a mile up the road, got out and started doing it over the hood of their car. Google wasn’t to be embarrassed though and their images have already been blurred out on Google Maps.
A couple in Florida have just been arrested… for kidnapping their own children. Recently, Joshua and Sharyn Hakken were found in a hotel room in Indiana with drugs, weapons and a story of Armageddon. Their kids were taken and given to their grandparents. In response, the couple allegedly tied up the grandparents and kidnapped their children. From there, they purchased a boat and fled to Cuba, a country with no extradition treaty with the US. But it was not to be! The Cubans tipped off the Americans and had the family shipped back to the US and the couple are now awaiting trial.
The Masters Golf Tournament tees off this morning at the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia. Tiger Woods is the early favorite and a win would solidify his return to golf prominence. Our official golf correspondent and former employee of the Golf Channel, Deb O’Keefe, reminded us all that golf is as much a game between the ears as it is on the green. A win at Augusta for Woods would be his first since 2008.
Nolan Ryan will stay with Texas Rangers as CEO but not President, which is different.
