Los Angeles Space Monkeys Show THIS FRIDAY!

Quinn here.

Just a reminder that myself and Inbetweeners co-creator and all-around Hollywood fancy pants Iain Morris will be taking to the stage this Friday night at the John Lovitz Podcast Theater.  It’s going to be a Space Monkeys show unlike any that has ever come before.

Plus, since I’m not sharing a hotel room with him, I can confirm that Impractical Joker Sal Vulcano will be coming up on stage too.  Basically, me and two of the funniest human beings alive will be giving our all to amuse you.

Both Iain and Sal have already given some hints on how they intend to sandbag me up on stage, so I can tell you it’ll be fun.

THIS FRIDAY!  Come on down.  We’ll be hanging out and drinking afterwards.  It’ll be a blast. Click here for tickets!

The Inbetweeners’ Iain Morris joins the January 20th L.A. Space Monkeys Show

Quinn here.

So any fan of TESD knows how much I love The Inbetweeners. It can’t be a mystery to anyone that I adore that show and, after he bought me endless rounds of alcohol in London, I also adore Iain Morris, the co-creator and writer of that show.

So I have a classic bad news/good news situation on my hands here that I need to report to you.

Space Monkeys has a live show set up for Friday, January 20th at the John Lovitz Podcast Theater in Los Angeles.  Originally it was supposed to be, as always, Bryan and I but due to Comic Book Men reshoots Bryan has to drop out.

That’s the bad news.

The good news is that my friend and personal hero Iain has agreed to step in to take over for him. He’s going to bring a touch of that old British class to the Space Monkeys.  Pip pip, cheerio!

If you’ve seen the Inbetweeners you know that this man is an absolute genius of comedy and I feel honored to share a stage and talk with him. If you haven’t seen the Inbetweeners, come down to the Lovitz and meet the man who co-created what will one day be your favorite show as well.

As always, I’ll be hanging out and drinking after the show.  Also, I’ve got Impractical Joker’s Sal Vulcano about 80% convinced to take the trip with me, so we’ll pull him up on stage for a bit too.

Jesus! THREE titans of television comedy!  What more (besides maybe Bryan and Walt) do you need?

I’m also thinking up some Impractical Jokers give-a-ways and more cool stuff.

All you gotta do is show up!  Please come down and hang out.  It’ll be a blast.

BUY TICKETS HERE!!!!!!!

Walt’s Paper Mache Skull

Quinn here.

On the 1/13/12 show Walt makes a request for a listener to make him a paper mache Day Of The Dead skull.  He is willing to trade a page of original artwork from War Of The Undead or Batman to whoever can make him a skull that looks like this -

Day Of The Dead Skull

I know he needs it to look pretty good, so please only contact Walt about it if you know you can make it top notch.

I know it’s for a pretty exciting project, so you’ll be happy to have been a part of it.

Good luck!

Awesome Vinylcast News and Space Monkeys Live info!

Quinn here, with two cool info nuggets to distribute

1) With only 4 days left to order the TESD Vinylcast, Walt has dropped an awesome new wrinkle. He’s going to give away the original penciled artwork that he drew for the album cover. That makes me wish that I was eligable to win it. Alas, I am not. Only those who order the TESD Vinylcast can win.

So that means if you order the album you can win one of the 100 colored vinyl records, or the signed record player, and now the original artwork. Again, we hope this goes to show how truly appreciative we are that you guys turned out in such force to support this idea.

ORDER THE VINYLCAST HERE!!! TIME IS ALMOST UP!!!

2) Bryan and I will be taking Space Monkeys on the road once more, this time to Los Angeles. On January 20th we will be performing at the John Lovitz Podcast Theater. This is the start to what I aim to make a solid year of touring for TESD / Space Monkeys. If you live in the area, please come down. Ask anyone who went to our England shows and they will tell you that Bryan and I go all out to make it as fun an experience as possible.

I’ll have more details on meetups and whatnot as we get closer, but until then you can order tickets here or at seesmod.com

That’s all for now. Thanks for reading. Happy New Year!

TESD RECORD PLAYER GIVEAWAY

Quinn here.

So, yeah, the vinylcast has done well.  I’ll never be able to show my full appreciation for the support of our listeners on this, but I kinda figured I’d try.

This week I’m going to purchase one of those all-in-one Crosley record players and get it signed by Bryan, Walt and myself.  When we ship the Vinylcasts, we’ll randomly choose an order and send the player out with it.

A TESD Edition Record Player.

Don’t worry if you don’t live in the United States.  ALL orders will be eligible to win the turntable.  I’ll ship it to the Congo if the winning order is from there.

So, around a hundred lucky people will be getting the colored vinyl version of the disc – I’m thinking it’s gonna be in red in honor of Walt’s beloved New Jersey Devils – but one super-lucky person is going to win the record player.  Hell, one person may even get both!

Hopefully the colored vinyl and the signed record player will go a little ways towards showing our appreciation to you guys for your support. It is truly inspiring. I only started the vinylcast project because I wanted to own one of them myself. This is the mandate that dictates everything we do here at TESD and, because of the success of this, I’m confident that 2012 will see some pretty cool ideas coming to fruition.

If you haven’t ordered the Vinylcast yet, you have until January 7th to do so.  After that the discs go to press and no more orders will be taken.  Click here to order!

Thanks again! Thanks so much!

-BQ

P.S.   Impractical Jokers.

The band at the end of today’s show are friends of ours & for those of you who’re so sharp-eyed you make an eagle look like Mr. Magoo, you’ll notice that one of the two members of ‘ The Ribeye Brothers’ is Jon Kleiman…a gentleman who contributed to the musical portion of one of America’s best loved films, Vulgar. Check out their MySpace page…our boys are fairly dope as the kids say these days.

BAND: The Ribeye Brothers

Vinylcast, A Job Offer And A Poster Contest

Quinn here.

I’d apologize for the lack of updates to the blog lately, but it was never my responsibility to begin with so I’m happy to throw Bryan under the bus for this one.

Despite the lack of blog activity, there has been a lot going on in the TESD world. I know you must be thinking that I’m referring to the fact that Impractical Jokers premieres this Thursday at 10pm on Tru TV. I’d forgive you for thinking that, knowing as I do that the world is simply afire with anticipation for what I’m calling the best TV show since Jesus. But that’s not what I’m talking about.

No.

I’m talking about the TESD Vinylcast. As far as I can tell, it’s the world’s first podcast to ever get released on a vinyl record. I shudder to think of you missing out on this. We’re taking pre-orders for it now here. We’ll be taking orders until January 7th. However many orders we have on the 7th is exactly how many we print. After that, we lock the plates away in the TESD vault, possibly never to be seen again. Each album will be numbered too, because people like numbered editions.

We’ll be shipping them out in late February, which isn’t as far away as that sounds. When you order the TESD Vinylcast, you get -

- 12″ vinyl record with a podcast on it that you have to stop, then flip over to finish listening to. Exciting!

- A custom sleeve with original artwork by Walt Flanagan, which will be numbered and signed by the TESD crew. Walt is pretty fired up about this, despite the fact that he shot me down when I first presented the idea.

- A code so that you can download a digital version of the show, complete with crappy record playing hiss-and-pop sound effects added to it. NOTE – We will never be selling this podcast in any other format than the vinyl. It won’t be popping up on Bandcamp in the future.

Now, here is the cool part, there will be approximately 100 colored vinyl records that we randomly ship out. I imagine that you will be able to sell these things on ebay for a few million in the near future. If you’re one of the lucky few to get one of these bad boys, you’re going to be the envy of everyone. Fucking EVERYONE!

CLICK HERE TO ORDER THE TESD VINYLCAST!!!!!

JOB OFFER – We’re looking for some help on the sleeve artwork and, for once, it’s a paid position. Walt needs a digital painter / photoshop expert to work on his art with him. If it’s something you’re interested in doing, please submit examples of your work to tellemstevedave37@gmail.com . It’s going to require a fairly quick turn around time, so serious applicants only. We need someone good. Again, we’re paying for this one.

POSTER CONTEST – Speaking of Impractical Jokers – If you live in NYC you can’t turn around without seeing an Impractical Jokers poster on walls, phone booths and on the sides of buses. I have two of these IJ posters to give away, and they’re signed by myself and the rest of the cast! Sure, if the show flops then it’s pretty useless, but you never know what might happen. These clowns might have a future. At least one of us should end up doing something bigger one day, right?

All you have to do to win one of these is follow both @BryWaltQ and @TheTenderloins on twitter. Since you’re reading this I’m assuming you’re already following @BryWaltQ. Now all you gotta do is follow @The Tenderloins. In a couple of weeks I’ll randomly select two people who follow both accounts to receive one. It’ll help me pick a winner (and help you win) if when you follow @TheTenderloins you send them a tweet that says something like “@BryWaltQ sent me here to win a poster.” Doesn’t have to be that exactly, just something that lets me know you’re there.

That about does it for now. I’m three days away from the premiere of my TV show, so I gotta go back to trying not to vomit.

Thanks for listening. It really means a lot to me.
