BYE BYE TO MY BOYS: Okay. When I found out last week that Cort and Fatboy were pulling the plug on their popular podcast I was: PISSED/SAD/MAD/FREAKED OUT.
And on second thought I was: pissed/sad/mad/freaked out (the lower case indicates the feelings were still there, just not as strong as when I first found out).
But then I started to think about the guys and how hard they work.
They both have "real" jobs. And "real" lives. And "real" bills to pay. And they have being doing the "Cort and Fatboy thing" for something like a million years in podcast years (I think it worked out to five days a week for 8 years). So, yeah, I understand that "all good things have to come to an end."
It doesn't make me feel any better. You see, for once a week, for almost as many years that they have been on the podcast airwaves, I have been part of their crew. I initially went on their to talk about "cool things that Willamette Week was doing." Then it was "cool things in the city." Then "cool celebs spotted in Portland." And, then about "cool things in my pants." And Cort's pants. And Fatty's pants.
Gawd, these guys not only allowed the little monster that lives inside me to come out of its shell, but they allowed me to shout at the top of my lungs words like "VAGINA" while wearing a glittery jockstrap. Okay, maybe I wasn't wearing a jockstrap but the rest of the stuff is true.
And I will miss it. God, will I miss it.
This morning Cort and Fatty (aka Cort Webber and Bobby Roberts) released this to the press. I hope to see you all on Dec. 7th. I will be the one sobbing in the Bagdad while trying to get Cort and Fatty to FINALLY get naked OR French kiss each other. Either way, it's going to be epic.
From Corty and Fatty:
"They say all good things must end. Well, so do the mediocre things. Pretty much everything ends, really. It's kind of a dumb saying if you think about it.
The time has come for Cort Webber and Bobby Roberts to turn out the lights on the almost decade-long run of their comedy/pop-culture talk show. And so we begin the countdown to their final episode, cortandfatboy is dead, recorded live on-stage at the Bagdad Theater, home to seven years worth of Midnight Movie screenings, featuring titles such as The Empire Strikes Back, The Iron Giant, ALIENS, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Fight Club, The Muppet Movie, Enter the Dragon, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and the annual homegrown celebration of all things Dude, Cinco De Lebowski.
cortandfatboy is dead will feature regular guests Ryan Fleming of DigitalTrends.com; filmmaker/writer David Walker (who will be screening his latest short, The Day They Ran Out of Bullets); Live Wire Radio host Courtenay Hameister; gossip columnist Byron Beck; creator of The Legend of Bold Riley Leia Weathington; stand-up comedian Jim Willig, an original presentation from The Sabertooth Vampire creator and Oregonian film critic Mike Russell; as well as surprises and special guests from the show's eight-year long existence.
Doors will open at 8pm, and at 9pm, the audience will witness the beginning of the end of Portland's only pop-culture podcast hosted by a squinty, stabby madman, and an excitable, Kangol-capped Hobbit thing. Admission is $6, Only patrons 21 and over may attend. Tickets are available at this link."
