Crankcast Episode 132 – 20080416

Cougar Gunned Down in ChicagoThey shot a what where?

This week on an episode of the Crankcast that probably should go see Andy Kuhn’s band, the Fuglees, at the Spot on Broadway here in Chicago this week (but probably won’t because Mike will be at the NYCC and I’m… well… me)… Mike’s oldest friend, Ron, drops by and wonders why he did, Mike celebrates a victory over the local goverment while I celebrate digital t.v. And there’s email!

Comment here, mail here and friendship here, or here.

    Or, you can get their artwork over at for un-paralleled service.

    Andy, no problem. What time are you guys going on? What’s the cover? FYI for anyone reading: the SPOT is just a wee bit north of Montrose on Broadway.

    Will… you’re wigging me out.

    Where have I been?

    Crazy busy, sirs! In between school and work and shooting my film, it’s been madness! Check out stills from the film on my blog I’d love to hear what you guys think.

    Speaking of shooting the film . . . Crank! You and I need to talk about that music thing. Has there been a final decision?

    Too much?

  6. andy kuhn Says:


    we go on at 10:00 pm.
    i gots no idea on the cover, sorry.

    Ron, I’m with you about the infomercials. Additionally, for each commercial that shows in front of movie after the listed start time, I want a buck knocked off my ticket price. Trailers are okay, theater notices are okay, but I shouldn’t have to pay to watch commercials.

  8. crank! Says:

    Keith… man I’ve had my head up my ass for a while now. Work does that to me. No problem with the music, it’s not done mixing but it’s close enough I think.

    Will… I’m just ribbin you. I think.

    Andy… have a good time man.

    Jason, I seem to remember reading something within the past few years about some initiative or other trying to gather steam for a proposal like that… pay the consumer for wasting their time or something. I can’t remember where though, it’s just one of those things that rings a bell.


  9. Keith Cunningham Says:

    Alright, I’ll drop you an e-mail about the music on the crankcast mail.

    Great episode guys! You should invite Ron again, he made the show better. Maybe he could become the Taber of sports.

    I’m glad to know I’m part of an elite club of less than a thousand people!

    Andy Kuhn is the best! (now if only he had a website with some art on it).

  11. crank! Says:

    JM, it’s funny b/c he does… I just couldn’t find it when I was making the show post, so I linked the Newsarama article as the next best effort.

    Check the crankcast e-mail.


  13. jmringuet Says:

    Damn, indeed he does! Thanks Crank!

    It’s a new thing though so I don’t feel too stupid about not knowing it :)

    (that Hulk is awesome).

    No worries JM, I didn’t know either til I saw the link from his name in the comments.
