Snow Plow Show – April 8th, 2014 – With You

Thanks for saving this old concert ticket from 1992, TheN!

This episode is sponsored by Uncle Grandpapa and Public Mobile and Doubletree Hotels.

  • There Are No People In The Future by Johnathan Mann
  • Read Michelle’s wacky tweets about me on April 7th, 2014
  • Come and visit Prank Call Nation’s chat room.
  • Be sure not to contribute to PLA’s Patreon campaign because it makes less shows happen.
  • Go buy some cactus shirts from Laugh Track Matt’s House O Shirts
  • Nichole is forcing me to go through with my dumb Talking Prank Victim Clock idea.  It’s going to be a webpage that has nothing but a live clock on it.  A talking clock that announces the time in the voices of angry prank victims saying things like “Do you realize it’s 5:15 in the morning?” and “12 o’clock in the fuckin’ midnight.”  What I need to get it started is time stamps of specific shows where prankees angrily announce the time for us.  Or better yet, mp3 files of prankees angrily announcing the time.  If you want to contribute, you can send either of those things to rbcp@phonelosers.org.  And once it’s finished, we’ll get to work on the talking prank victim clock app for iTunes and Android.
  • I’m pretty sure that angry message electrocuted and killed a man each time I rang it.
  • Contribute to the I Phreak Alone video.  Here’s a link explaining the project and what scenes are needed.  Don’t send anything after April 10th though.  Or maybe the 11th.  Or the 12th if I get really lazy this week.  I’m hoping to have the video done this weekend though.
  • This is the last week that you can by Bonecage’s album, which features creepy stalker voicemails by me.  He’s taking it down forever after this weekend.  So quick, order it while it still exists.  All that’s a lie though, he’s not really taking it down.  But get it anyway.  To trick him into do more things for us.
  • The ending song was With You by I Fight Dragons.  If you say it all together it’s like “I fight dragons with you.”  I wonder if that was intentional.

PLA’s New Album – Sorry I Dinged Your Car

So remember way back in 2012 when PLA once again completely re-invented prank calls by asking listeners to put notes on cars that read, “Sorry I dinged your car!” with my phone number on it? And remember all the hilarity that ensued whenever the car owners would call me, pretending that they were cops or attempting insurance fraud by acting like there really was something wrong with their car? Remember when that guy yelled at Carlito for kicking his Audi or the time Laugh Track Matt sucker punched Samantha in the face?

Now you can relive the glory days of car ding prank calls by listening to this brand new album of old prank calls! Sorry I Dinged Your Car contains over an hour the very best car ding calls. Completely edited and remastered in digital stereo, these 17 tracks are guaranteed to make you happy that you don’t take your car or your life as seriously as the people in these calls do. This album contains calls by Samantha Clarkzilla, Tristan Brunsdon, NotBrad, Triquel, Carlito, Laugh Track Matt, but mostly RBCP.

How much would you expect to pay for a gem like this? $25? $100? $600? Make sure your heart medication is nearby, because we are giving this album away absolutely FREE. That’s right, it’s FREE! Right now, you can download the entire album for nothing at all by visiting phonelosers.bandcamp.com.

What’s that? You say you like stupid archaic technology like compact discs? You say you like filling up your home with useless plastic crap? You’re a hipster that walks around with a Sony Discman, listening to the greatest hits of the 1940′s? Well then this deal just keeps getting better and better because you can buy a physical copy of this amazing new album for five bucks. No, you are not hallucinating, you can actually get this album on completely outdated technology from the 1990′s for just $5.00. If you’re in the United States.

If you’re in the U.S., PayPal $5.00 to rbcp@phonelosers.org. If you’re in Canada, make it $10.00. And if you’re anywhere else on the planet, better make it $15.00 total, because those international shipping rates are insane. (If it’s considerably less money than $15.00, I will refund some of it and change the price on this page.) This special offer is only good until May 31st, 2014, so hurry the fuck up. After that I’ll probably make these CDs $45 or something.

  • Everyone listen to this show on Stitcher!
  • Someone make PLA Windows wallpapers for Maxxwell.

  • If you want to re-live the horribleness of 1980′s answering machine messages, then have I got a site for you!

Snow Plow Friday Night Show – March 21st, 2014 – Prank Call Nation

In this evening edition of The Snow Plow Show, RBCP was nice enough to spend 3 hours editing out all the ringing phones and awkward silences from the show, bringing the total running time to just 1 hour and 48 minutes.  It was originally 3 hours. YOU’RE WELCOME.  This is the premiere Snow Plow episode on the brand new Prank Call Nation Network Machine!

Patreon
About a week ago, Carlito from Madhouse Live (yes, I’m blaming all of this on him) introduced me to a website called Patreon.  Patreon works a little like Kickstarter, but on a much smaller scale.  It allows users who enjoy content they find on the interwebs to fund the content, so that content gets better and happens more frequently.  So of course, I immediately set up a Patreon account for PLA, in hopes of tricking people into using it and getting filthy rich.  As of this writing, PLA is making approximately $250 per month with Patreon, all thanks to the amazing listeners who enjoy PLA’s stuff.  Thanks, you guys!

What I’m hoping to accomplish with Patreon is to create a buttload more content for the PLA than I currently do.  By receiving more money from Patreon, I’m able to scale back on my paid employment a bit.  And by scaling back on that, I have more time to create live shows, podcasts, videosmusic, poorly animated cartoons, unfunny comics, prank call albums, weird telephone playgrounds, games that aren’t much fun, t-shirts, and just all the other weird miscellaneous crap that I’ve been doing in my free time for the past 20 years or so.

Imagine how out-of-control this whole PLA thing could get if I had too much free time to do all this stuff.  Instead of putting just an hour a day into PLA like I currently do, what if I were putting 2 hours into it?  Or 4?  Or 8?  Given enough money and free time, I’m nearly certain that Phone Losers of America could become a sovereign nation and declare war against the United States.  Or at the very least, some fun new projects will come out of it.  And maybe more live shows, more videos, and a little more of everything else that happens here at PLA HQ.   You all know me pretty well and you can probably imagine the kinds of things that would be likely to happen if money were involved or if my personal time were less restricted.

One of the best parts about Patreon is that it’s forcing me to do PLA things.  We’ve already hit 2 milestones on the Patreon page, which means I am obligated to buy some professional DJ drops for the Snow Plow Show and for Carlito’s new prank show network, and I have to put out a new PLA prank call album.  I’ve already gotten started on the album and it’ll probably be available by this time next month.  The next milestone will force me to create another phone song and if things go well enough, you’ll end up seeing a new episode of Telephone Falls and we’ll end up with a PLA album on vinyl.  Because, you know, giant chunks of plastic 10 times bigger than your iPhone are convenient!

I enjoy the hell out of all the wacky content I’m able to put out there in my free time, and it makes me super happy that you people enjoy the things I make and I will always keep doing it whether this Patreon thing works out or not.  But if I’m able to make some decent money from Patreon, I will immediately begin working less hours at my real job and I will put 100% of that extra time into doing more shows, making more videos, more merchandise and just more everything.  And not only more, but maybe I can start dropping a little more money into these projects to make them better.  I will do as much stuff as I possibly can with the money and free time that your contributions and Patreon is able to give me.

So go donate the minimum. As it is now, $1 per month is getting you 4 live shows/podcasts a month and about 4 prank singles on the YouTube channel. And maybe 1 original phone-related song per year and a half-assed attempt at an animated show. $12 per year isn’t too bad of a price for all that, right?  And if you donate more, you get monthly care packages and other fun things from the PLA.  Visit patreon.com/phonelosers to view the various reward levels and decide if you’d like to become a part of this.

Thank you, to everyone that’s supported PLA, both with Patreon and in other ways.  I’m excited to see if this pyramid scheme where this whole thing takes us!

 

 

If you think Patreon is just way too mainstream for someone like you, I’ve set up a donation page where you can donate directly or with those weird new-age hipster Bitcoin things that you people won’t quit talking about.  I will reward non-Patreon donations with the same things that Patreon users get.  (Speaking of that, if you’ve donated to PLA in the past year, send me an email if you’d like to collect any of those rewards listed on the Patreon page for the amount that you sent in.)

Snow Plow Show – March 8th, 2014 – Roy’s Athletic Club

 

Brad & Fake ZZ Top. This has nothing to do with this show.

Here’s a 3 hour Saturday night show which was so bad that the edited version is only an hour long.  The edit isn’t too terrible, though!

  • What Asterisk softphone software should I use?  What’s the best ever?  I’ll even pay for it if it doesn’t suck.  Let me know in the comments.
  • Bonecage is releasing a new album on April 1st! Go preorder it at thebonecage.bandcamp.com/album/fish-food for songs that feature RBCP being creepy!  (I cut a giant chunk of middle of the song out – it’s not really that short.)
  • Listen to JagTV!  www.mixlr.com/jagtv 
  • The two tiny bits of songs that I chopped out of the show for copyright reasons were Silly Really by Per Gessle and a cover of Lorde’s Team by Scott Bradlee
  • Carlito will be doing a morning show on Monday morning around 9am or 10am Pacific.  Hopefully.  Listen to it at www.madhouselive.com/chat/ 
  • The ending song is No Más Mermaids by Bonecage.
