The Time Has Come!

Discussions of life and such from lifelong friends. And such.

Episode 024: Sick Out There and Getting Sicker


In which Josh and Keith discuss ailments and maladies. But, you know, in a fun way. The talk (eventually) gets to various and sundry injuries, illnesses and hospitalizations of the past, but not before we learn all about Keith’s meeting with the CAKE BOSS, Buddy Velastro and more troll-lore than you thought possible.

Like all good podcasts, this one ends in geysers of explosive diarrhea.

Episode 023: We Will Control the Horizontal

“There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical.”

This episode is all about Reality TV programming. But it isn’t just an hour and a half of two guys talking about how “reality” isn’t real. We try to get at the thing under the thing and discuss the reality of why we are given so-called “reality” as entertainment. It attempts, in some part, to talk about the underpinnings and underlying Platonic demiurge that crafts our desires to see archetypal stories of human drama and suffering as a catharsis and release and relief.

There’s also a lot of stuff about Dudley and Arnold getting touched in their bad-spots by Gordon Jump on DIFF’RENT STROKES.

Cooking shows, American Idol, the Loud Family from the 70s, the pervasive evil of Maury Povitch through history as force of societal decay, and how everything is really a big game show. All this and more in this week’s podcast.

Episode 022: We Are the Champions, My Friend

Life sometimes hands you moments of victory when it all comes together. Fleeting ones, perhaps. But moments, nonetheless.

At least, this is Josh’s hypothesis. Keith disagrees somewhat. In this episode, Josh and Keith talk about moments of triumph when events conspire to almost give you a movie-like scene. Learn how a cheering crowd of hundreds yelled out Keith’s name as he raised his arms in victory and how Josh snatched a moment of glory from the folks kicking him out of Jew-Camp.  And the best story Josh knows.  An actual “very special episode” of The Time Has Come.

Also discussed: The unfolding Elmo scandal, “you can’t go home again” Tom Wolfe style to a comic book shop, and Keith’s ideal world of iron-fisted dictatorship.

Episode 021: Here Come the Holidays

Halloween’s done and Thanksgiving’s soon upon us. Then the mad rush to Christmanuhkaawnza-New-Year. It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Except that it really, really isn’t. Join us as we discuss holiday nightmares and stories of pain and embarrassment that only family can bring. Racist uncles! Terrible gifts! Awkward family gatherings! Midgets and George Lucas (for real!)

All this and more, in a *very special* Holiday Episode, TTHC-style.
