This is just a small taste of the show overall, the bits and bobs that I found interesting, funny, insightful and relevant. To hear everything that happened, check out the podcast of today's show. However, if you're looking for a quick read along with random self inserts and my personal thoughts, you've come to the right place.

Call in Point:

(This is the broadstroke canvas on which I base my call, obviously these notes are going to be longer and more detailed.)

Well, today is certainly going to be interesting, isn't it. To go from 70's to 20's in a span of hours is not something that has never happened but we were enjoying day drink outside weather. Hell, even Angi went outside without a bra on and a tank top to pot plants yesterday though I think she did it to show the pigeons next door she could offer them better than their owner. Since Angi's gardening could be considered a hobby (albeit a boring one,) it makes a perfect segway into today's Daily Discussion Topic. As you know on this show, we don't do anything normal so we wanted to hear all about red flag hobbies like collecting Stanley tumblers (eye roll.) Other big ones include being obsessed with celebrity culture, being obsessed with politics (I'm seeing a trend here,) bull fighting, dog fighting, (if dog fighting is your hobby, you should be booted into a hole.) Also on the list, collecting controversial things like memorabilia, porn, serial killer or Nazi stuff. Pretending you are an influencer and acting like one even though 25 people follow you. Degenerate gambling, which was our first Angi red flag. To be fair though, Angi has been pretty good at avoiding that garbage casino downtown. Smoking weed, drinking (did they seriously write this up about her?) Because we didn't have enough examples, how about two more. Geocaching, which is like an outdoor treasure hunt and speaking of outdoor hunting, how about tossing on Pokemon Go as well. Marris did attempt to defend Pokemon Go but as expected, Angi would not hear of it. Marris that he only played it while commuting but has since ceased doing so because he doesn't walk enough to do it anymore. Anyway, Marris' offering of one of the few things that gives him the ick are porcelain doll collectors which is super niche and yet Angi is in the same boat. However, this was turned on Marris as he is growing his Funko Pop collection and is up to about 40 of them now. Though this is on the lower end (I have about 60 or so scattered around my apartment,) Angi suggested he should get some shelves to display them (and scare off women.) With vague insults dispatched and settled, it's time to move on to the Request Line and hear the roadie thoughts. Shelly said anyone whose hobby is collecting spoons. Angi pondered if the ex she was alluding to was in his 80's but it was more, he was just some kind of dork. He used to go to gift shops of places they went and would get frustrated when he was not able to find spoons. Jerry knew someone whose hobby was collecting Nazi memorabilia but you know, the WW2 stuff like statues and flags. According to Jerry, the hobbyist was a good guy (sure Jerry.) Jason was also freaked out by a doll collector and likened his experience to the episode of Seinfeld where roughly the same thing happened. Alexis said hunting, as the mere thought of men sitting in the woods killing animals freaked her out. Steve planted his red flag in the Disney collectors, the ones who buy movies, junk and love to visit the theme parks. If you're a 37 year old man without kids and you hit Disney all the time, just why. Funny enough, Angi knows someone who is like this (and I know two funny enough) and she and I both find it weird. Angi did add that she went once as an adult and ended up getting wasted on Pleasure Island, which is not a Disney sex toy empire but a bunch of adult bars. If you are looking for more roadie thoughts or have your own, hit up our Facebook group (Angi Taylor Show) and drop us a comment.

Other Stuff from Today's Show:

Though we announced the return of Kegs & Eggs this morning and while that is important, we'll be talking about that for the next few weeks. Another story that will basically be one and done but fits the pattern of weird, wacky and wild that this day promises to be is that of the lead singer of a band who pined after his band mates fiance. In a wayward attempt to steal his girl, he did what any rational person would do and started dosing his bandmate with estrogen to hopefully cause him to transition (WHAT!!!) The band Llorona took to Instagram to say they got rid of their lead singer Diego after he was found to be messing with bandmate Six's brotein powder in order to snatch away Six's fiance Carolynn. The plot came into fruition when Diego, who had a side gig in the fitness industry, started giving Six protein shakes laced with estrogen for five months. The idea was that this forced attempt at transitioning would allow Diego to look more manly in front of Carolynn and in turn, win her heart. This stunt caused thousands of dollars in medical bills as Six has had to see an endocrinologist for several months to figure out what was wrong with him. Worse though is there could be permanent damage done with this cunning game of turning a mouse into a cat. While we were baffled, discussed and befuddled by this wild story but since we are helpful, we offered suggestions on what he could have done. Perhaps get Six pictured with some groupies or as Marris suggested, entrap him in a situation that would force a breakup. The thing was, this was a long drawn out premeditated plot that might have gotten worse had Diego not screwed up by getting drunk and then telling his other bandmates what he was up to. Obviously, all this is completely over the line and insane and there perhaps will be (see: should be) legal recourse. We did cap this though with Angi wanting to know what Carolynn looked like and if her vagina dripped gold. Oh also we added that you know, you probably shouldn't do something like this because it is wrong and awful.

Moving right along on this glorious Tuesday (that won't be come nightfall,) we took a look at voices. More specifically, we explored what a person's vocal sounds elicit to other people. For example, Marris is a deep talker and Angi is a low talker (me, I'm a gay talker clearly.) These traits though offer us an insight into our personality even though we can't change how they sound due to nature. Let's start with pitch, you've got low like Morgan Freeman, Tina Turner and Marris. Angi thinks she's low but you know, she also thinks she's dying every day. Mariah Carey is low as well. Anyway, if you have a low voice you're rich, deep, an attractive partner, have sex appeal and are an extrovert. As for high voices, you have Christina Aguilera and Cameron Diaz who use their high pitch speaking toward people they feel inferior to. An insert came from Angi who talked about a girl who she went to high school with who used to talk in a baby voice and figured using it would turn a guy on. A tempo fast talker is clever though that doesn't mean people who speak slow are not actually dumb. Are you a mumbler? Then you are apparently considered macho and attractive to women. However, if you are a woman, you had better be using clear pronunciation as that's what men like. A louder voice is more liked in a situation where it is needed and in turn, quiet people are considered introverted. Before we explored the loss of hearing occurring in the studio, Angi mentioned she hates how certain people at iHeart talk low. This might have something to do with her hearing and eyesight being a mess and Marris' is going as well. So basically, all you took from this is stuff you already knew.

Finally, Angi is imploring the roadies to go watch Saltburn (I would say go into it wary because you would love or hate it.) Anyway, the mansion featured in the movie is a 700 year old estate and the owner is realizing that once a movie gets buzzy, the attention is awful. Social media people are now showing up out there and of course dancing outside of it to "Murder on the Dance" floor. The overall amount of interest is weird to him and he also feels it is unflattering. On top of that, he had to hire additional staff and security to deal with the trespassing. This isn't really too insane though because someone went on Tiktok and gave out literal directions to the house. That's the thing about tourist landmarks like that stupid rathole, the Home Alone house and other places. Then again, when people rent out these places, they don't expect them to go viral but perhaps they should consider it. That said, this was all just a tease up to get people to watch Saltburn, Angi absolutely demands it.

Request Wars 3.0

Current Champion: Marris (2x)

Angi's Song Choice: “The Hand That Feeds" by Nine Inch Nails

Marris' Song Choice: "Anastasia" by Slash (ft. Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators)

Winner: Angi

10 O' Clock Toast:

Toastee: Any business that's a front.

Angi is looking for one stop shopping places to get her Marby's, wine and weed so perhaps 420 Liquors in Kentucky is her paradise seeing as they were recently busted selling weed illegally. With a name like 420 Liquors, we're shocked.
