Ask A Prostitute Theme

People have been asking me for the “Ask A Prostitute” theme music. It’s basically an AppleLoop jingle with a vocoder saying “ASK A PROSTITUTE” over and over. If you make it into a ringtone, please let me know how that goes over at work.

your obt svt,

Continue to Help A Listener with Terminal Cancer

We have a listener who has been battling terminal bladder cancer since 2011. He’s had to try to continue to work just to keep the lights on despite horrific intractable pain, but hasn’t had a full time job since being laid off in 2012. The last tweet I got from him said “i’m already $100 away from being homeless. At this point I long for the relief that death will bring.”

He has no family who can help him, and he’s alone, suffering in a cold house he may be evicted from soon due to back taxes. He has about 30 …

Weird Medicine Does Riotcast

Last night we recorded a “very special” Weird Medicine from the RiotCast studio above the Comedy Cellar in the West Village. Thanks to the owner, Noam Dworman for giving us this incredible space to record! Rob Sprance, the co-owner of The Riotcast Network was there and made sure all the technical details were perfect as well as lending his special brand of micrognathic humor to the conversation.

This was a roundtable discussion with guests from RiotCast and XM103. The guest list included the delightful Kristin Montella from “Live From the Table”, “…

An Open Letter to Dr. Steve

I got a note from a listener about his mom and her nightmarish foray into the medical system.  She had a mass that was removed and post surgery retained a lot of fluid (it’s called “third spacing“, feel free to Google it). Anyway, she was getting a bit of the ol’ “run around”, likely due to being told different things by different practitioners on her case (and there were many).  Anyway, I gave her and her son some information and support and moved on.   A week later I got this letter.  Sometimes we don’t know the impact we’re …

Weird Medicine Music Beds

Some people have asked about the music beds we use for ads and stuff. I plan to post all of the original audio here for people who might want it (but why would you? It’s AWFUL!)

For now, here is the new music bed for next week’s recording session; we’ll use it for AMAZON, Gamefly, and Tweaked Audio (offer code: FLUID). Feel free to make a ringtone out of it if you’re so inclined. And lay off my jazz improv skillz…I STINK and I’m well aware of it, thank you very much.

I plan on uploading a …

The Blackberry Boys By Richard McNail Jr

Ok, this guy called our show (you’ll hear it 6/16/13) to plug his book by asking a question about anxiety. Of course, it was tongue in cheek and we get the joke, but the guy doesn’t have any comments or reviews on his Amazon page so I thought it would be fun if our listeners left a few “words of encouragement” and “serious questions” for him. The first sentence of the book says “There is no evidence of reality among this story…” so you know it has to be great!

Here’s the link!

Enjoy!

Here’s the original phone call:

R.I.P. XM Jim

We were given the very sad news that our friend XM Jim passed away today.

He always told me “this cancer isn’t going to get me, doc” and he was right; he died of a massive heart attack.

Jim was self-employed and had no life insurance; he leaves behind a wife and 3 kids, 2 of whom are 4 or under and one of whom has special needs. Beside the obvious emotional distress, they are so devastated financially that they’re asking the Veteran’s Administration for help with his burial.

If you can see it in your heart to …

Please Help @XMJim!

Occasionally, I come to you, hat in hand, to help one of the friends of our show monetarily. Some of these promotions are more successful (Patrice O’Neal, Big A) than others (Blowhard), but you always come through. This time we really need your help.

A listener to our show (he’s @XMJim on Twitter, please follow him) was feeling crummy so he saw his doctor and came away with a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. He’s been in the hospital and has now lost his job and has no income. Of course, his cancer treatments are going to cost …
