the new funhouse studio bar

the new funhouse studio bar

The NFL auction more than exceeded any expectations I could have had and the new "studio" has been built. The studio as you may have expected and is what is appropriate is a bar - with the podcasting are at what @GregChaille likes to call "Loser's Corner" at the far back corner. I can bartend and talk to my guests at the end stools while not interrupting the football on the screens overhead.

This has all been done in the few days before I leave for 5 weeks in Europe but we've had enough time to get a bunch of podcasts frontloaded to drop in while I'm away. Afterwards, everyone's favorite guest/co-host Chad Shank (@hdfatty) has agreed to fill in for me.

I am whiling away my final days at home shoring up the book and remembering the shit I have to do on the European tour. I can't thank my hardcores enough for making this happen.

When I get back we'll focus try to get video and such involved.

After that, I'll figure out what the fuck happens with the rest of my life. Maybe I should have said "career" instead of "life."

But really... what's the difference?

More to come. Or less.

The Funhouse football helmet auction: Your road to the Superbowl party

The Funhouse football helmet auction runs Sunday Sep 6 through Sunday Sep 13th, 2015

After six months of chain smoking, pacing, drinking and generally going insane inside this bunker, I have turned in the draft of my book to my publisher. The deadline was Wednesday and I finger-fucked the manuscript all the way til 11:59 that night to hit send. I'm sure there is plenty more bullshit to come with editing notes, cover art and especially battles over the title. It's already on Amazon for pre-sale under it's working title "One Funny Mother" which should be the first thing that gets changed. Grab now regardless. [ Click to Pre-Order a copy of "One Funny Mother" from Amazon ]

With that out of the way, let's get ready for football. The Funhouse is being refurbished into a proper studio for podcasting, as well as for football. It should be ready to roll for the opening game September 10th.  Sadly, to make room, I have to unload my collection of football helmets, all 32 teams. They will go up on eBay individually starting at noon pacific on September 6th with a new one going up every ten minutes after that. The auction ends the next Sunday, September 13th.

The helmets are all full-size. Most are replicas, a lot of them throwbacks while a few are youth regulation and one - the Jacksonville Jaguars - is an NFL regulation from their first year pre-season. It has their original logo that they had to drop before the regular season after being sued by Jaguar. Serious collectors item for a Jags fan, if such a person exists.

The sale of these helmets will help offset the cost of the new studio. So the winning bidder for each helmet will have their name and team put on a plaque on the wall of the new Funhouse studio in thanks for helping build it. Also, for the helmet that sells for the most overall, the winner will have an invite for two to Bisbee for our Superbowl party in February and I will adopt that team as my new favorite team for the season, even if it requires the shame of wearing a Steelers or Cowboys jersey all year.  I really hope an Arizona Cardinals fan with deep pockets saves me from that.

I've autographed each helmet on the inside. No sense messing up the outside with my illegible scrawl. And expect some bonusgift to come along with the helmet. You die-hards make great things happen and I appreciate it. Thanks for helping this all come together. We'll some All-Star podcasts coming out soon and often.

I'm Writing A Book

I'm writing a book.

That's right.

I got a book deal writing about my life with Mother.

It's a lot of fucking work.

That's my latest best excuse for not writing anything here.

Everything else you need to know is on the podcast or Twitter or in the Tour Dates.

Just get on the Mailing List and you'll know everything first.

Including where to buy the book.

I'll make sure to mention your name in it.

What's your name again?
