Squirrel Hunting with a Blowgun

Episode 58 finds the boys answering emails, making each other laugh and Heavy asking if we’ve ever been squirrel hunting with a blowgun.  Straight out of the gate, Heavy is offering up million dollar ideas including “Beaver Box”.

Ty is wound up after a trip to Ranger’s spring training and he shares his argument with his younger brother about the safety of un-refrigerated mayonnaise.  This leads to a discussion about whether other condiments need refrigeration including the jellies and jams.  At one point someone says “Fritos and Mayonnaise”, which almost became this episode’s title.

In Episdoe 57, the guys talk about the Canadian TV show Letterkenny.  So you may wonder why Gustav basically repeats himself this week in order to tell a story about a run in with a treasure trail.  It would be nice to say that it was an intentional reset for listeners who may not have been by the channel for Episode 57.  But the truth is that we recorded Ep 57 two weeks after recording Ep 58, but jumped it ahead in order to document Matt’s finding of the “Coke is the Real Thing” commercial.  So that means in two short weeks, Gustav had completely forgotten what they had talked about when they recorded this episode.

They turn to emails and first up is nicest guy in the world Tom with some questions about vacation spots in Texas.  We pretty much let Heavy answer this one and collect a check from the San Antonio Tourism Office.

Next up we have emails from two of the three hosts of the Tell Me Where to Turn podcast.  Tommy offers up a hypothetical and Glen fires off an email aimed at a lot of different people.  Then Gustav goes off on a rant about ATF barrel length regulations and for some reason Heavy asks “Ever gone squirrel hunting with a blowgun?”

And Ty and Gus geek out about Mike Wallace from Sixty Minutes fame.

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.

That’s Me and Bananas

Listen to this week’s episode for a listener email about cruise ships, hot sports opinions about Dairy Queen Blizzards and Gustav’s weird stance on bananas.

Following up on Ty’s strange time measurement challenge from last week, Gustav asks about nighttime bathroom habits to get the conversation going.  Ty shares a dangerous story of going to the bathroom while Gus and Heavy make fun of him.

Ty and Heavy then stumble into some Alex Jones talk, stealing a page from the likes of IJB but then Ty starts challenging Gustav’s libertarian beliefs, probing to see exactly what he believes covering everything from home distillation to seat belts.

Long time good time listener Chef Rob (aka the Seafood Sorcerer) sends in an email based on recent Twitter conversations regarding cruise ships.  Gustav recounts past cruises and Heavy chimes in with his horrible experience.  Cruise talk leads to a discussion of whether or not we take too many pictures in this digital age.

banana suitSomehow we end up on the discussion of Dairy Queen Blizzards (imagine us talking about food…seems impossible). Gustav of course has some contrarian opinions on this staple of the ice cream based treats.  Which of course then leads him down a rabbit trail about banana flavored medicine called Paregoric.  His experiences with the camphorated tincture of opium known as Paregoric changed his life in a way that Heavy and Ty have a hard time comprehending.  And Paregoric gave us today’s episode title “That’s Me and Bananas”.

The Bonus Halloween Episode

Episode 36 is a special bonus Halloween episode because Heavy and Gustav care about the listener, unlike Ty, who was busy being an international over 40 male model.  Undaunted, Heavy and Gustav take the listener on a horror hayride through the spooky haunts of the 903 area code.

To get the ball rolling, the boys look fondly back on how trick or treating is done in rural area and a small town.  Their experience isn’t the stereotypical idea of walking door to door.  Then they jump ahead to the hooligan years of teenage mischief on Halloween.  We weren’t bad kids, but we certainly pushed the boundaries.  The world is a lot different than it was back in the eighties and nineties and I’m not sure you could get away with what we were up to back then in today’s environment.

Gustav and Heavy Know How Creepy Rural Texas Can Be

Heavy then talks about how terrified he was when he watched the Blair Witch Project.  He assures us that it was because he had been in some weird spots out in the 903 area code.  A few tales of strange goings on and supposed Satanic rituals at the old campground may have you siding with Heavy.  Be sure to stop and enjoy Heavy’s most spooky tale (wind sound effects included).  Gustav then recounts two odd occurrences that have happened in the last year and how he can’t explain them.

Hopefully, you’ll enjoy this bonus Halloween episode as much as we enjoy you listening to us.  If you have any ghost stories, weird occurrences or supernatural experiences, email them to us at canyouhearmepod@gmail.com and we will be sure to discuss them on an upcoming episode.  And if you want to tweet at us you can find us at @realgustav @longmireheavy @tywebb3000 and @canyouhearmepod.  Don’t forget to subscribe to us on iTunes, GooglePlay or however you get your podcasts.

Homecoming, Cab Grief and New Boots

The guys are back in Episode 31 of the Can You Hear Me podcast with tales of a cab ride gone wrong from the start, a high school homecoming game and new boots.  Plus, as usual, there is plenty of non-sequitur nonsense and general tomfoolery.

Gustav recounts the recent proselytizing that he and Ty have been busy with in order to promote the podcast.  Their trip to Fight Night and the post fight festivities lead Ty leaving his truck in Dallas and Gustav driving him home.  But up until this episode, Ty had not told the group his very frustrating morning dealing with a cab driver who could use some customer service coaching.

Next it’s on to Gustav’s tale of his recent trip to a high school homecoming football game (the first he had been to in over 20 years).  He has several tales of awkwardness and unfortunate sights.  But he also has visions of greatness as patriotism was in full force.american flag shirt

 

Then the boys turn to new boot talk.  No one likes to try on new boots (unless you happen to be Ty trying on ten thousand dollar custom boots).  But Gustav was faced with boot shopping after his wife and daughter bought him a new pair of boots which didn’t fit correctly.

Don’t forget to check out the Weird Al Yankovick’s homage to Charles Nelson Reilly that we mentioned in this episode.

Voltron Formation and Roadkill

Episode 27 finds the crew answering listener emails about everything from roadkill to the Sheriff of Nottingham and lots of other strange things.  Starting things off, we have an email from Tom where he makes the mistake of inviting the guys to his new business facility which happens to be an old prison building.  Wanting to repay the kindness, Gustav offers up some helpful hints regarding 37mm grenade launchers.

The next email from Cody has the guys rolling on the floor laughing.  Cody never disappoints with his emails and this is no exception.  Not to give it all away, but it involves: decriminalization of marijuana, a bright flash light, unconventional making of whoopie and something he refers to as “the Voltron Formation”.

Gustav also shares an email that the podcast received with possibilities for a business venture with a banker in Asia who just needs a serious business partner.

Once they pull themselves back together, they tackle the Butcher’s email where he points out the similarities between our beloved Heavy and the Sheriff of Nottingham from Walt Disney’s animated version of Robin Hood.

The Butcher also asks if they boys have ever eaten Roadkill.  You may not be surprised which of the guys has eaten and who hasn’t.  Gustav also shares the tale of when he and Heavy ran into a wild hog early one Easter morning back in the mid-nineties. (Neither Heavy or Gustav can remember what year the collision happened, which seems to be a symptom of their advancing ages).

Then to wrap things up the boys talk a bit about bird hunting, the upcoming dove season and the pitfalls of duck hunting.

Ointments, Copays, and a Snakebite

This week’s episode begins with Gustav recounting the story of the snakebite his seven year old daughter received on Memorial Day weekend.  She’s fine now, but it was a scary weekend followed by a few days at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas.

The Big Toe Two Days After the Copperhead Snakebite

With all the medical talk, Heavy asks the guys to think about how fathers approach health care versus the way that mothers might.  As you can imagine, Heavy has some very specific ideas about the subject.  Along the way, Gustav gives tips for how to procure IV saline solution without a prescription for your emergency preparedness needs.  Heavy provides his own questionable tips and then shares his run in with Lyme Disease back in his scouting days.

The Juvenile Copperhead that Bit Gustav’s Daughter

An email from the Fake Bailey Jay spurs Gustav to talk about how her appearance and sweetness causes people to want to share all sorts of stories with her even though she is an introvert who doesn’t want strangers talking to her.  Fake Bailey Jay and Gustav ran the Tough Mudder in Austin and had no shortage of new friends.

The guys also talk about Heavy’s irrational dislike of anything to do with clowns, Tough Mudder, sunburns, and sunscreen.  And no episode would be complete without a walk down memory lane.  The guys babble about Buck Rogers and Silver Spoon, which both featured the super hot Erin GreyErin Gray in Buck Rogers
