According To Whim: The Audio Show

These are mostly in MP3 but a good chunk (about 30) of the older episodes are in Real Audio format. Just make your PC play it like an MP3 and it should work. If you are die hard, rename the files.

And YES, we were doing these audio shows LONG BEFORE THERE WAS SUCH A THING AS A "PODCAST". So shove it you trendy people!

The concept is simple. We (used to, before digital junk) take a ninety minute tape stick it into a tape recorder and record on one side until it stops. So we might never achieve a completely satisfactory ending. A typical ending might go like this, "Hey Miguel don’t you think we should stop the show right now, since we’re almost coming to the…(click!). Mighty production value conscious of us, huh?

During that time we (Miguel, Chris, and occasionally Nathan) talk about…just whatever. You may hear something entertaining, something funny, something profound, or something that just doesn’t interest you at all. Anyway you can listen to it while you look at other web pages. Although we record on tape, you’ll need a Real Audio and an MP3 player to hear it. And don’t be alarmed when it cuts off abruptly either. That’s by (poor production) design. Most of the shows are done in the wee-hours of the morning, usually up to about 4 or 5 am (oh the excitement)! Miguel and Chris start off the series and Nathan comes in at about show # 20.

A word of warning, as we're talking we try to be ourselves as much as possible, which means that our language might be geared more for an HBO type of audience than the Family Channel crowd if you know what I mean. There is quite a bit of language and VERY crude humor here so don't let the young ones listen... you've been warned!

So sit back, start listening and do some web surfing! Soon will be familiar with this rag tag group of unmotivated slackers!

One final note. Several (most) of the newer shows are where we discuss business stuff and goals and such and might not be 'as' entertaining as the regular show. You will see 'Business' in the description

He also enlightens us on other roles in several other movies.  
     Miguel and Chris take us on an adventure to Stop and Go where they freak out the cashier, making her think they are: undercover sneaks from corporate? or just a couple of freaky weirdoes? You be the judge! They also discuss Miguel's love of the movie Cobra. Other topics include expensive milk, popular music, Even more Y2K.      Chris flips out and goes into spasms or something and yep, you guessed it, Y2K. Chris reads some fan email for their TV show, or is it? They also read THE email...The email that could give them their 15 minutes of fame!!!! Miguel makes late night prank calls to New York executives while Chris makes fun of his job and risks firing.
     Miguel and Chris discuss why they had a falling out. Miguel's unfair use of Boarders Books, his hots for roaming folk artists, the speed of time, his long lost friend, and the show wraps up in a giggle fest.

  Beauty, more Y2K. Chris thrills us with his tale of dangerous road conditions. Miguel and Chris also discuss the death of 80s rock bands and working on their T.V. show, raving tyrants aimed at local entertainment magazines and their failure to give them their 15 minutes of fame! (the first few seconds of the audio is kinda bad).  
     Chris' explanation of how he antagonizes Miguel and Miguel constant reply of "hi", mathematical proof of why 2000 won't be start of new millenium and Chris tries to get the room cleaning going again.

     Movie discussion, marital discussion and more, and that's before the show EVEN starts! Then the show actually breaks down when conversation runs out. Not to fear, it starts up again at full force. A discussion of making According To Whim as well as Behind the scenes sketch (Gus Van Sant's Psycho), Opening sketches pro or con (Politically Incorrect,Saturday Night Live), this show as an extension of Chris' and Adam's taped correspondence, Clinton impeachment (sex or not), Tipper Gore sucks, StrWrsTrdr IMs, Carl Crew's Jeffrey Dauhmer masterwork, white trash marriage, and the Switzer love connection.  
     The show begins with a discussion of Cracker Barrel firing policy, red necks, and the bible with lots of spicy language. Chris and Miguel wanted to attempt to enrage as many people as possible in their first show! Leviticus complex, going to the kitchen (look at all these chocolate chips), and 97 hours at Papa John's.
