Another show? 2 weeks after the last one? That’s impossible. 5 years worth of podcasting and this is what it results in. This show.

TUTT 54: Definitely Not Coming Out

Download me - I'm a Podcast

A New show packed with all the minutia you expect from your friends over at TUTT. We talk about Ice cream vans, sex dolls, Josiah as a roommate, Ben not being gay, Porn and Josiah as a critic of his own short film. When does the hilarity ever stop? Tomorrow.

Yet another problem this week. The podcast rendered missing the final 10 minutes. We’re very sorry about this and have re-output the file.

TUTT 53: The Dingleberry Peninsula

Ahhh, just got it up in time. Josiah’s gonna provide the notes. TUTT 53, back in MP3 form (with link to AAC to come) Sorry ran out of time.

So, I tried to get the other site up and running, but it seems as though by splitting up the website into 2, it meant twice the work. 8 hours of editing source code later I’ve decided, why screw with a good thing? Let’s get this website pimped and we can see what happens in the future. What we like to call this is me coming running back… will you take me back?

Alright, alright. Here it is… You guys really are some pushy bastards. ;)

It’s over an hour long and some weird thing with GarageBand stopped me from adding the show notes. Apparently 1 hour 3 minutes is all GarageBand can handle… which makes no sense. Also, it’s not in MP3 anymore, it’s in AAC (m4a) format, which will probably drive a few people nuts, but check out the chapters! Ooooohhhhh Chapters! And Artwork! Ooooohhhhh Artwork!

You may want to download it directly… RSS is making my head hurt. Available for a limited time as a link.

Josiah is responsible for all links… and me not getting any sleep.

TUTT 51: F-in’ Broken Foot

Josiah’s been bugging me to put it up, so here it is: a new post. Since Josiah is so excited – why doesn’t Josiah do the notes?

I urge you all to bug him… constantly.

UPDATE: Just Josiah Adds links! Holy Crap!

“I Get Around” from Dragonette off the album ROBOPOP
“Living a Lie” by Aqueduct from their album OR GIVE ME DEATH
“Wet & Rusting” by artist Menomena on album FRIEND AND FOE
“Bonsai Tree” off the album LIGHTNESS by Peter & The Wolf
Off the album DISCO ROMANCE, Sally Shapiro’s song “I Know”
From Mew off the album FRENGERS, “Snow Brigade”
From Blonde-Redhead off the album 23, the song with the same name.

I realize those aren’t ALL the songs we played. Linked are the one’s I know. We were a bit tipsy and didn’t give the band name and song title for EVERY song. So to make up for it, more fun links:
