Heavy’s Flag Code

The guys are back this week with Heavy’s new flag code, problems with Whataburger and a special treat from Ray Ranfill.  To make up for last week’s short episode we bring you the listener over one hour of quality product.

Right out of the chute, the guys tackle electricity and belts.  Riveting stuff right?  Then Gustav talks a bit more about Letterkenny, the Canadian comedy series that is now the guy’s current favorite show (update: Ty is all caught up).  It would be great if Letterkenny was available in the U.S. but it’s not at this time so you are just going to have “figure it out”.

 

Then Heavy gets all patriotic and digs into the Flag Code.  That leads  Ty and Gus to prove they are partly wrong most of the time.

How Heavy Respects Our Flag

Then we address a follow up email from our previous episode Partial Rewall.  Ray Ranfill is a poet and Ty gives life to his wonderful verses.

After such a glorious j.o. fest of in-jokes and 80’s NCAA basketball references, Ty gets all old man and channels his rage against Whataburger after he’s had two negative experiences in 24 hours.  Plus Heavy reveals a shocking Whataburger confession.

Somehow Ty realizes that Heavy looks like singer/songwriter/actor Hoyt Axton and that derails the show for a while.

Since they are derailed, Ty and Gus spend some time fondly thinking about the WKRP Softball episode.

Gustav tells how listener Matt found the lost Coke movie commercial in a shockingly small amount of time. Coke is the Real Thing once again.

Juicin’ Hard

This week is a short episode due to some technical issues, but there is plenty of fun as the guys talk old movie theaters, juicin’ hard and other nonsense.

To get the ball rolling we engage in more talk about Heavy’s dad and his habits which transitions into a discussion about watching habits and how they have changed over the years.  Heavy tells us about how he watched the classic Paul Newman Jackie Gleason film “The Hustler” on Netflix (not to be confused by the landmark skin mag published by Larry Flynt).

Ty and Gustav notice Heavy is looking thinner so he shares his new philosophy of “Juicin’ Hard”.  This may catch on globally so you heard it here first.

Once again the boys talk about their childhood movie theater and how magically decrepit it was.  Then they plead with the audience for help to find the lost Coca Cola movie theater advertisement about “Traveling down a dusty road, going to meet a friend.  Down at the movies, that’s where it all begins.”  No one can find it and hardly anyone remembers it except your favorite educated hillbillies.

Heavy comes up with new business ideas which short of winning the lottery will be total failures. Ty talks about time traveling Beatles and Gus discusses a Stephen Still lost demo tape that was found and released as “Roll Tape”.   Somehow that brings about fond memories of the Freedom Rock commercial back in the eighties and nineties.

Gus offers a reward for the missing Coke commercial, but he will not honor Ty and Heavy’s additional offers of a reward with his money.

Sorry it’s a short episode, but sometimes things get messed up when you have free labor.

Fractional Recollections and New Coke

The guys are back in Episode 32 to do a little remembering about New Coke, candy from the seventies and give a little love advice.  While we fully acknowledge that nostalgia for the 90’s is the territory of the Partial Recall Podcast, we felt that we were safe to slide back into the seventies and eighties for a bit of “membering”.

A previous episode featured the story of a faulty Coke machine in the jr. high field house which if someone was willing to get shocked, would continue to feed out free Coke’s.  Ty and Heavy seemed to remember that it was a “New Coke” machine so that prompted us to discuss the disastrous change from the traditional Coke recipe to the New Coke  and the subsequent backlash that led to Coca-Cola Classic, with New Coke eventually fading out of existence.

Of course we discuss why Coca-Cola management felt the need to monkey with a good thing.  A major factor was the Pepsi Challenge.  Ty lays out why the Pepsi Challenge was successful and why ultimately, it was deceptive to the Coca-Cola management.

All of this talk about soft drinks leads the crew to remember magical moments when an ice cold Dr. Pepper or Coke was the best thing in the world.  Then the conversation turns to each member’s favorite candy back in the olden times.  Gustav brings up some long gone candies like the Marathon Bar or Reggie Bar while Ty and Heavy just stare blankly at him.

Turning from nostalgia to their mission statement to help their listeners, the guys put on their Dear Abby wigs and answer an email from Pretty Little Nurse  on how to catch a guy that she has been on a couple of dates with.  After delivering some remarkably sound advice, Gustav tells how Mrs. Gustav put him through a long interview process before she finally gave into his questionable charms.
