The Time Has Come!

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

Episode 027: 2012- The Year in Review

a note from Josh Dobbin: Keith and I debated whether we should put up an episode or not this week. I was of the opinion at first that a kind of “moment of silence” would be appropriate to observe. But Keith said, “I understand that. But don’t you think it’s also a good idea to know that we still live in a world where good things should be talked about, too? Where it is OK to laugh?” He was right, and here it is.

The Time Has Come looks back over roads traveled: a recap of where we began this year, episode by episode. We talk about some behind the scenes things on each episode and go over things we missed or additional stories that didn’t make it into each.

This will be our last show of 2012, as vacation and holiday travel will see Keith in Florida for the rest of the year. But we’ll be back in 2013, better than ever. Or, failing that, at least: older.

Episode 026: Vehicular Homicide


Americans have a love affair with their cars. The idea of identity and masculinity being expressed through and by a vehicle is one that holds sway in our culture.

Not so for Josh and Keith. ESPECIALLY for Keith, who claims that ALL cars are actively attempting to kill him.

In this episode: Keith’s 1st car and its terrible racist christening, a tale of cars and stinks and farts (oh my!), Josh’s challenge of virility by way of jet-ski mastery, and the time Keith was taken for a ride by low-level Brazilian gangsters. But a very, very short ride, all total.

Also! The re-release of Pulp Fiction in the theaters and some 90s and QT talk. Good stuff.

Episode 025: For the Love of Toys


It’s that wonderful season we all find so pleasin’… the Toys ‘R Us tiiiime of year….

Christmas is only a few weeks away, so Josh and Keith deconstruct the idea of toys and the desire for them and the need for play. We learn the hard-plastic secret of Keith’s “Rosebud” and find out about how he barely survived a rampaging pack of furious mothers during the height of the POWER RANGERS toy craze.

Also discussed: The dystopian nightmare of modern day Chuck E. Cheese, Keith’s nightmare weekend, the further adventures of Ayash-Man, and who did or did not invent Pac-Man.
