"Can I come too?"
All this recent Simpsons talk has caused me to do a lot of Googling of my favorite Simpsons moments. This is one of them.
I ordered a new remote for this old 1992 TV I found and someone at newremotecontrol.com of Thomasville, Georgia sent it to me with this picture on the box and I am only like 3% creeped out and 97% THRILLED.
Bravo to the man/woman who decided to do this.
Finally drinking my congrats on quitting beer gift from my former coworker. Thank you Amy for sponsoring this night of drinking alone.
When Tinder asks me to post pictures of “moments” on their app, I think they’re assuming I’m doing more interesting things than watching Bob’s Burgers and creeping around on okcupid.
With a little will power I stretched out #Saga to a few weeks, but now that I finished volume 3 I’m plotting to steal those single issues from a friend’s bathroom.
Thanks for your show. I am very much a regular listener now on WNYC in New York (Sunday at 6:00).
This might sound offensive, but I mean it in the best way: I hear the promo for your show, and I often say to myself, “I don’t give a shit about this.” Then I listen to ten or so minutes of your broadcast and I find myself totally engaged and totally drawn into whoever you are talking to, or whatever you are talking about. Your program has the ability to make me care about subjects that I was 99% sure that I wasn’t interested in. An odd compliment I’m sure, but it is a compliment I assure you!
Best to you and your colleagues at Bullseye. Keep at it.
A specific instance, delivered earlier today via email, of a sentiment I hear a lot about Bullseye.
It’s great fun for people who are already on board with the show (or who are listening on the radio and simply don’t change the channel). For us, though, it’s a pressing problem.
What’s the hook when the premise, essentially, is “trust us?”
We don’t do SHOCKING BOMBSHELLS, we don’t do CRAZY CONFLICTS, and no boldface name we book seems to have more than about a 10-15% impact on our numbers.
So… I dunno. Just throwing it out there.
If people are not jumping in because they assume these things aren’t for them…perhaps you can flip your premise/messaging from “trust us” to “trust yourselves.” There’s already so many authorities saying “trust us” on these matters, you may be able to cut through all that noise by playing up the aspect that makes Bullseye unique; the fact that the show is less about you telling listeners what to like and more about helping them discover new things and become their own personal pop culture authority.
This is kind of vague and not all that helpful, but I work in marketing and I promise I will likely be mulling this over all week in hopes I’ll come up with something better (anything for Maxfun).
Just some extreme dancing at this wedding. @foundmonster
Episode 081 with Kurt Braunohler, “School Song”
Kurt and I watch the one where the posse decide to give Bayside a new school song; Zack cheats (of course) in order to win the song contest, but gets his comeuppance in the form of “pure lemon extract,” which makes him choke in front of the whole senior class.

In addition to always enjoying Go Bayside, I also love scrolling through the tumblr to admire April’s super rad personal style (especially what seems to be an amazing collection of glasses). That’s not weird right?
