Justin has been overseas on a secret assignment, and Adam has been in Melbourne on a secret assignment, so there has been no Shelf Podcast for a couple of weeks. Apologies. This episode is Adam Richard and Tegan Higginbotham having a natter in a café. Tegan's hair is falling out, Kevin Rudd's refusal to go away, Les Mis, David O. Russell, watching comedy and reality tv.
Last week it was in a car, this week Justin and Adam are on foot, on a tram and on a train as they head out to see a preview of the movie Cloud Atlas, which they talk about a lot. They also talk about other passengers, Justin gives a serve to an impolite audience, and both of them give too many details about noxious fluids being expelled from their bodies.
It's a PodCARst as Adam gives Justin a lift to the airport so he can do gigs in Queensland. In between trying to kill children and cyclists, we cough and sniffle a lot, and rabbit on about things like: who we would cast as Justin in the movie of his life, the end of things (which Adam has blogged about for MolksTVTalk), the things dogs do, suburbs in standup as code for racism, and bronzing up.
Every week at The Shelf we are presented with The Shelf News, delivered with aplomb by Adam Rozenbachs and Tegan Higginbotham. This is a collection of their work. If you can't work out what is going on in some of it, that would be Justin, Adam and Wil crashing the stage. Sometimes almost nude, in Adam's case.
It's a memory episode! Just like when someone hits their head on Happy Days and remembers all their favourite episodes, Justin, Adam and Tegan remember the time Celia Pacquola joined Adam and Juzzy on stage to talk about her sister's baby. Adam sexually harasses James Bond and then we all lose our minds over Skyfall.
It's our final podcast! Okay, calm down. Just for 2012. Phew. It's Justin, Adam and Tegan talking through Justin's list of the best and worst of 2012 conveniently repurposed from his TV & Movie reviews for Mix 94.5 in Perth. Yes, we managed to take a polite five minute segment and turn it into an hour of profane yelling. Play it for the family on Christmas Day. If your family likes swearing and hearing Adam freak out about deep fried people.
It is with great sadness that we announce that European Man is leaving The Shelffor greener pastures. I am certain he will be along to shed some light on his new career move but until then we'd like to wish him the best and out of respect he will be a part of our official images for our 2013 season. He will always be close to our hearts even if we have no idea to this day what the fuck he's talking about. God bless you European Man, God bless you indeed.
Sorry there's been no Shelf Podcast lately. We were going to release some of the live shows as podcasts, but they're all far too foul. By foul I mean shouty and defamatory. We will have two special live Shelf Podcasts coming in the next week or two, plus an hour long year in review podcast for you to take with you on that heinous roadtrip to visit your family. Or to listen to during Chrissie lunch, instead of your Nanna whining about her new foreign neighbours. Okay, projecting a bit much there, Adam...
