Here’s The Thing – Doughboys Drop

If a podcast (like Doughboys) runs long enough, the hosts will inevitably repeat themselves a few times. Here’s my unapologetic takedown of one of Nick’s frequent turns of phrase. I repeat, it is unapologetic!!

We Don’t Talk About Plug Bags – Comedy Bang Bang “Closing Up the Plug Bag” Remix

Every year, Ben Schwartz improvs a new song for the end of the Plugs segment on Comedy Bang Bang, and the show solicits remixes. Here’s the original, and here’s my second submission of the year, this time with an Encanto flair:

Shut Up – Doughboys Drop

I’ve made eighteen drops for the Doughboys podcast, but this is the first one that uses my own original music. It’s a beat that I composed using MuseScore, a really nice (and free) composition program for Mac OS (and Windows and Linux).

Crumbelievable – EMF vs Shake and Bake Mashup

I made this mashup of an old Shake and Bake commercial with EMF’s “Unbelievable” after being inspired by Lauren Lapkus’s off-the-cuff Shake and Bake remix in the “Crumbelievable” episode of the “Threedom” podcast. It is very silly!

Saved By The Booze – A Booze News Theme for the Sloppy Boys

Here’s my first Booze News theme for the Sloppy Boys podcast. If I understood the assignment, the goal is not necessarily to make something musically cohesive, just something that ends with a tinny stretched out voice introducing the segment along with an insult? Anyway, here it is.

It’s a mashup of the Saved by the Bell theme, Back in Black, and the Go Bayside cheer.  If the player doesn’t load right here, you can listen on my YouTube channel.

Cooking Around the World: A Date With Banana Cake

The Internet is not awash with genuine Burundi cuisine recipes, so I settled for this allegedly Burundian banana and date cake recipe from Travel By Stove to satisfy the Burundi requirement of my Cooking Around the World challenge.

The result was basically pound cake with bananas and dates in it, so not bad.

Cooking Around the World: Riz Gras from Burkina Faso

Around and around the world he goes, what he cooks, nobody knows! Until now: I cooked Riz Gras from Burkina Faso. It’s a tomatoey peppery chicken and rice dish. I used this recipe from At Home World Traveler, substituting sweet red bell peppers for the habaneros and cutting up the chicken thighs before sauteeing them.

I loved this. It was my favorite meal of all of the “Cooking Around the World” meals so far, and I’ve eaten it for leftovers three times since the night I made it. It’s especially good eaten with flatbread, but still really good all on its own.

Cooking Around the World: Patatnik Patatnik Baker’s Man

It’s Bulgaria’s turn to be cooked around the world. I made patatnik (a potato pie) using a recipe from Kitchen Frau.

It was basically a large hash brown. It certainly needed more salt, and in a perfect world, it would be half as thick and twice as crispy. Better luck next time Bulgaria! Continue reading

Wiges – Doughboys Drop

In my latest drop submission for the Doughboys podcast, I went non-musical and channeled “Being John Malkovich” with this compilation and combination of 72 different instances of Mitch addressing Nick as “Wiges.” All of the clips came from one regular episode and one Double (their extra weekly Patreon episode), where Mitch said “Wiges” 36 times in each.

This drop was played in the episode “Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers with John Early.”

Cooking Around the World: Brunei Scream, Bruyou Scream, We All Scream for Honey Barbecue Chicken Pizza

My latest “Cooking Around the World” recipe comes from Brunei, and it’s the Pizza Hut Brunei-exclusive Honey Barbecue Chicken Pizza. I used this recipe from Foreign Fork with this Pizza Hut crust copycat recipe from Alyona’s Cooking.

How did it taste? Like every barbecue chicken pizza I’ve had before. But I felt extra fancy thinking about Brunei while eating it! Continue reading
