Gawd, where has the time gone? It’s like we haven’t recorded a show since, like, Thanksgiving. Oh…wait…uhhhh…

HEY GUYS, WE’RE BACK! Happy New Year. Merry Christmas. Happy post MLK Day! It’s the first Rad Dudes show of 2012! We’re a little rusty, but hey, it’s the Rad Dudes. What, did you come here for professionalism? Noob. Okay, so, like todays show is good. Wingo gets mad about movies, Jovi hollers about the horrors of Craigslist. We wax poetic about Harry Connick Jr’s acting ability and so much more. Also, Dumptruck decided to grace us with his presence. We make him do an Ultimates! You’ll like it. Trust me. If you don’t, you can punch Wingo. But not in the face. He calls that “The Moneymaker” for some reason.

GAZE! BASK! ENJOY!

Hello there. It’s good to see you. Come on in and get comfortable. You can take off your shoes, if you want. I’ve lit some candles to set the mood. They’re vanilla scented. There’s some pizza and wyngz cooking in the oven. Pour yourself a glass of wine and lets get romantic. It’s date night at the Rad Pad and love is in the air. With the seasons changing and with the right amount of tea, Wingo and Jovi (with producer Kowalski) are going all romantically in your ears and in your face. GROSS, RIGHT!! HUUECK! The boys are like Coltrane tonight, all over the place. Trust me though, it’s good. Talk of politics and the record industry and cinema magic. But seriously, back to before, my pants are chafing me…mind if I take ’em off?

Meet the Rad Dudes favorite lady, Nina Conti. Wingo loves her more, which is weird.

If we were as half as cool as this picture, we'd be UNSTOPPABLE!

NEWSFLASH: Go out and buy some records! The new Plaid (scintilli) is great! So’s the new M83! Oh, and a fritter is any kind of food coated in batter and deep fried. Circumscribe is a word (it means “to draw a line around”). And a slider is called a slider because White Castle trademarked “slider” in the old days. The more you know! (star wipe)

Show 51 – Rad Dudes Schmad Dudes

or, “Son of the Schmad Dudes”

Pre-rolled tea, orange chips and Newcastle…THAT’S how you produce a show. Maybe Kowalski should take notes, since today The Rad Dudes are producerless. Well, that’s not totally true, since Enforcer Extraordinaire Roger Assaultry is in the studio, pushing buttons and laying it down. Yeah, Steve had to play a gig (RETROFIT 4EVA/STINGER NEVA) so Roger filled in the blanks. And did well. Tune in, turn on and RAD OUT!

Yes, you should wrap that in bacon. In fact WRAP EVERYTHING IN BACON!! Doonlawd this new episode and thank us later. No, seriously. Thank us later. We <3 validation.

DELICIOUS TINY BIRDS! GET IN MAH MOUF!

DELICIOUS TINY BIRDS! GET IN MAH MOUF!

An informative message from Master Chef Dr. Wood re: his delicious foods:

Dear Rad Dudes,

Here’s the recipe for the Orange Cornish Game Hens served up for the 50th episode.  The recipe is under development, but here’s what went down this particular time.

Ingredients:
– whole cornish game hen(s)
– orange marmalade, trader joe’s variety works well
– one large orange (or oranges), depending on how many hens
– one pound bacon
– a fistful of rosemary sprigs
– at least one whole, peeled garlic clove per hen
– salt
– pepper
– strawberries
– Rainier cherries (this time), or other stuff: pineapple wedges, blackberries, mangos, whatever.

> Carve the peel off the orange(s) in longitudinal slices, about an eighth to a quarter inch wide.  Set aside about half, dice up the rest as finely as possible, ideally with an excessively large hunting knife.
> In a small bowl, squeeze the juice from the remaining orange(s), and mix in the diced peel with several large spoonfuls of orange marmalade.  Depending on how much raw orange juice you have, stir in the marmalade until it gets to approximately ‘pancake syrup’ consistency.
> Rinse off each cornish game hen, then salt and pepper to taste.
> Place two sprigs of rosemary, one (or more) whole clove(s) of garlic, and several spoonfuls of orange sauce into the interior (also known as the ‘bunghole’) of each hen.
> Coat the outside of each hen with orange sauce.
> Place 4 or 5 sliced wedges of orange peel side-to-side across each hen.
> Wrap each hen in bacon to cover as much of the surface as possible without excessive overlapping.  The idea is that the bacon wrapping prevents the surface of the bird from drying out while the interior cooks, aside from adding flavor.  Use common sense: feel free to cut bacon strips into halves or smaller pieces as necessary to cover the hen’s surface, and use toothpicks to hold bacon pieces in place where needed.  Again, avoid overlapping the bacon wrap as much as possible to ensure that the hens cook at a consistent rate.
> Coat outer bacon wrap with orange sauce.
> Preheat oven to 400 degrees, bake approximately 45 minutes.  There will be a lot of bacon fat dripping off of the hens as they bake, so I’d recommend using a rack inside a large pan, or whatever you can devise to allow the bacon grease, hen broth, and orange sauce to run off and be captured beneath.
> Allow to cool 2-3 minutes, baste with orange sauce.  In that 2-3 minutes, I’d recommend pouring off the aforementioned bacon grease with hen broth and spillover orange sauce to make gravy.
> Serve with ample side of strawberries, Ranier cherries, and a dipping bowl of the orange sauce, and/or gravy.

Personally, I don’t have a problem with Jello. I think its cool. It’s all jiggly. And as a conduit for booze, it’s great. Wingo though, man, he effing hates Jello. Don’t get him started. Trust me. Hide your kids, hide your wives, The Rad Dudes are back! Happy Memorial Day America! USA USA USA USA!! Steve regales us with tales of Japan, the boys yell about stuff and there’s a brand new batch of Ultmates! Now slice up some salami and fill your ear holes with hilarity.
