"A little revision to the Stugotz Personal Record Book that maybe some day I'll come around to writing..or Mike will..." I've been writing the Stugotz Personal Record Book since it began. 82 Total Entries so far.

[Time Stamps] Recently started to use them in late 2019. They may not be exact based on what podcast app or service you use. But they'll be close. In 2020 I've started to use Google Podcasts for the time stamps, and they'll be labeled if used.
When a new entry is added because Stugotz said something, I go back and edit it into this post. If you have any I missed - message me.
I DIDN'T ASK FOR ANY OF THIS:

FOOTBALL

(1) UCF is the 2017-2018 national champion.
(2) If Kirk Cousins goes to the Jaguars and not the Jets, no championship he wins will count in the personal record book.
Note (2)(a): Still pending sort of since Kirk is with the Vikings now – possible in future he could go to Jags.
(3) Eli manning has 1 ring. He doesnt get one for throwing a ball into David Tyree's face / Tyree getting a football stuck in his helmet.
(4) Carson Wentz has a Super Bowl 52 ring.
Note (4)(a): Foles does not have a Super Bowl 52 ring.
(5) The Raiders defeated the Patriots in their divisional playoff matchup in 2002 (Tuck Rule game), and then would defeat the Rams in Super Bowl 36.
Note (5)(a): In this scenario also, Bill Belichick was also "fired and looking for a job" after the Tuck Rule game and has 0 rings.
(6) If the 2017 Patriots won Super Bowl 52, James Harrison would not have a ring (Patriots lost to Eagles).
(7) Peyton Manning has one ring (Broncos ring does not count).
(8) Peyton Manning must give such ring he lost (above) to Von Miller, who thus has 2 rings.
(9) Aaron Rodgers can have all the rings he wants for keeping all of central Wisconsin employed.
(10) Brian Billick has 0 rings (2000 Ravens Super Bowl) because that defense carried him.
(11) Tony Boselli is a Hall of Famer.
(12) Tarik Cohen is an honorary Jew.
(13) JuJu Smith-Schuster is also an honorary Jew. L'Chaim.
(14) Drew brees has three rings for winning the super bowl for the city of New Orleans.
Note (14)(a): There was discussion on this where the number started at three, went up to five, came down to two, but it ended up at three.
(15) Mike McCarthy has no Super Bowl rings.
Note(15)(a): Dan also has this in his record book, and it is the first entry into the Le Batard Personal Record Book.
Note 15(b): In fact, McCarthy has -3 (Negative three) rings.
(16) Any Super Bowl rings Antonio Brown gets with the Patriots will not count in the Stugotz personal record book (9/9 Weekend Observations National Hour 2).
(17) Ohio State's 76 to 5 victory over Miami (Ohio) on 9/21/19 does not count.

BASKETBALL

Kevin Durant
(1) If Westbrook wins a championship and beats Kevin Durant along the way in the playoffs, Westbrook will have won 2 championship rings.
(2) "STRAP IT ON BOYS, GONNA TAKE YA FOR A RIDE:"
Kevin Durant has 0 rings (Zero rings)
Kevin Durant has -1 rings (Negative 1 rings).
Kevin Durant has -4 rings (Negative 4) (As of 4/11/18)
Note (2)(a): This number is subject to change based on Stugotz altering rings to the "-4" current total. Specifically as seen recently when Stugotz adjusted the number from (i) 0 rings to (ii) -1 rings to (iii) -4 rings.
Note (2)(b): Here is a tweet transcript of the conversation where this was discovered.
Archive link
(3) If Kevin Durant wins an NBA title for the NY Knicks, he will gain 11 rings.
Note (3)(a): As seen above in "(2)," Kevin Durant has -4 rings.
Note (3)(b): [Math] If Durant were to remain at -4 rings, and subsequently win an NBA title for the Knicks, he will have 7 rings total. This was specifically stated (-4 + 11 = 7), and a question about a non-specifically stated Personal Record Book entry is posed below in "Note (3)(c)(i)."
Note (3)(c): If the Golden State Warriors had won a championship playing 3 on 5 with Kevin Durant, Kevin Durant would have 1 ring.
Note (3)(c)(i): [Confusion] I am unsure if "Note(3)(c)" means he would gain +1 ring, and therefore be "up" to -3 rings total. Possibly, Stugotz means if the Golden State Warriors had won a championship 3 on 5 with Durant, Kevin Durant would be at +1 rings total (Positive 1 rings).
(4) Kevin Durant's dagger in Game 3 did not count, because according to Stugotz, none of Durant's stats count. KD's official statline last night was 0/0/0 and the Cavs blew the Warriors out by 40.
(5) Anything Kevin Durant has done with the Warriors so far is not in Stugotz' personal record scroll.
Note (5)(a): Stugotz did not take his feathered pen and write anything in his scroll (King Roy approves).
(6) Westbrook has ALL of KD's rings.
(7) For every time KD says he doesn't give a BLEEP, Stugotz adds 2 "I do give a BLEEPS" in the personal record book.
(8) Per Dan, speaking on Stugotz' behalf, Kevin Durant has no Olympic Gold Medals (9/18/19 National Hour 1 @ 00:07:50).
Michael Jordan
(1) Jordan has 9 rings because:
(a) The Rockets have to give their 2 rings from 1994 and 1995 to Jordan (+2); and
(b) The Bulls would have won the 1999 Finals over the Spurs if Jordan didn't retire (+1; 9 total).
Note (1)(a-b)(i): Put LeBron's rings in a box and put Jordan's rings in a box. Jordan is +6 by the way over LeBron box-minus, despite box-minus sounding like a dumb stat.
(2) Michael Jordan was suspended for 2 years for gambling (Said 4/25/18 Hour 2, 14:30 in podcast).
Note 2(a): HOWEVER, MJ still has 9 rings as see above in (1)(a) and (1)(b).
(3) Any game Michael Jordan played wearing the uniform #45 does not count.
LeBron James
(1) If LeBron James goes to the Golden State Warriors, every Championship he wins will result in a deduction of 2 previously won championships.
(2) The Miami Heat LeBron teams were the GREATEST teams in the history of sports (5/7/18 Local Hour).
(3) The Miami Heat LeBron teams were also the MOST INTERESTING teams in the history of sports.
(4) If, after the 2018 NBA Playoffs:
(a) LeBron does not make it to the finals and the Celtics do; and
(b) The Houston Rockets do not make it to the finals and the Warriors do; and
(c) LeBron goes to the Houston Rockets for the next season, THEN
LeBron is allowed to win rings that count in Stu's personal record book.
Note (4)(a-c)(i): HOWEVER, Harden & Chris Paul - if they remain on the Rockets with LeBron on the team - are not allowed to have any of the rings won with LeBron count in Stu's personal record book.
Note 4(a-c)(ii): To quote the big man Stu (with Dan agreeing of course), "Do it on your own” (Dan agrees here).
(5) If LeBron wins an NBA Championship with the 2018 Lakers roster (as of 7/23/18), then that wins counts for 6 rings.
Note (5)(a): Thus LeBron would have 9 rings.
Kyrie Irving
(1) Kyrie Irving hit one of the biggest shots in NBA Finals History, but was only in that position because of LeBron James. Kyrie Irving, did hit one of the biggest shots in NBA Finals history that won everyone on that team a Ring, except for you (Kyrie). (3/9/20 Hour #3; Google Podcast @ 07:00).
Note (1)(a): Stugotz: "A little revision to the uhhh Stugotz Personal Record Book that I'll come around to writing...or Mike will." I'M WRITING IT YOU IDIOT MORON JACKAL
Misc. Basketball
(1) The Houston Rockets have 0 (Zero) NBA Championship victories.
Note (1)(a): See "Michael Jordan (1)(a)" for reasoning.
Note (1)(a)(i): [Restated Reasoning] Michael Jordan is actually in possession of those 1994 and 1995 Rockets rings because Michael Jordan would have won those championships if he stayed in Chicago.
Note(1)(b): [CONFLICTING HOT TAKE] Stugotz has also said Jordan didn't get the Rockets' rings because he was actually suspended for gambling.
Note (1)(b)(i) NEEDS CLARIFICATION PLEASE. Stugotz keeps going back and forth. In "Michael Jordan Note 1(a)," the opposite of "Miscellaneous Basketball Note (1)(b) is stated because he has gone back and forth on this issue.
(2) Steve Kerr has no rings as a coach. In fact, he has never even coached a game.
(3) Mychal Thompson (Klay's dad) has no rings. (Said on Zach Harper podcast).
(4) Clyde Drexler no rings (Said on Zach Harper podcast).
(5) Giannis Antetekoumpo is pronounced Yani Adababoombo.
(6) As long as James Harden has his beard, he cannot win any championships.
Note (6)(a): If the Rockets win a ring, then the ring goes to the beard.
(7) Lamarcus Aldridge cost the Spurs game 2 of the 2017 Western Conference Semifinals, even though they won.
(8) If the Sixers happen to win a championship, Sam Hinkie gets a ring.
(9) Chris Paul has NOT made a Western Conference Final since he had to join the Rockets to do so.
(10) Michael Jordan winning the NBA Finals in 1999 also means that Tim Duncan only has 4 rings instead of 5 rings.
(11) The Warriors only have 1 ring
Note (11)(a): Durant still has -4.
(12) Boogie Cousins cannot win a NBA Championship and have it count if he does so with the Warriors.
(13) Billy Donovan was the NBA Coach of the Year in 2017 (12/13/17 @ 28:10 Hour 1).
Note (13)(a): The Thunder blowing the 3-1 lead to the Warriors that year had nothing to do with Donovan. It was Durant's fault.
(14) The OKC Thunder actually did win the WCF against the Warriors in 2017 when up 3-1.
Note (14)(a): This does not apply to Durant though.
Note (14)(b): The Thunder also beat whoever they would have played in the Finals. Durant still no ring.

BASEBALL

Babe Ruth
(1) Babe Ruth is black.
(2) Babe Ruth never hit a baseball. Not once.
(3) Babe Ruth is the number two black baseball player of all time behind Barry Larkin.
(4) Babe Ruth is NOT a top 20 Baseball player of all time. He's a pitcher.
Note (4)(a): However This is somewhat confusing/interesting because:
(i) Stugotz has said "Babe Ruth is the number two black baseball player of all time behind Barry Larkin; and"
(ii) This MUST mean Stugotz can only have 1 black player in his top 20 Baseball players of all time Barry Larkin; because
(iii) The only way this can work logically is if in the list of greatest players #1 through #20, only Barry Larkin is on the latter top #1 through #20 list. I would like some clarification on if he wishes to change this take/record.
(5) Babe Ruth is also not a top 20 pitcher of all time.
Misc. Baseball
(1) Stugotz has declared that in his personal record book, Baseball no longer allows pitchers to hit (Stated on 05/03/2018 @ 12:38:52 P.M).
Note (1)(a): Excludes Bartolo Colon, and Shohei Ohtani.
Note (1)(b): You are either a pitcher or a hitter. Not both.
(2) If the Dodgers won the 2017 World Series Clayton Kershaw would not have had a ring.
(3) Wade Boggs DOES have a ring because he rode around on a horse with a beer afterward.
(4) Clayton Kershaw did not win an MVP award because the award for pitchers was already given, the CY Young award.
(5) Miami beat LSU in the 1996 College Baseball World Series.
(6) The 1986 NY Mets did not win the World Series against the Boston Red Sox.
Note (6)(a): This "pains" Stugotz.
(7) The Red Sox retroactively winning the 1986 World Series may result in taking a ring away from the Mets.
Note (7)(a): Stugotz has to think about it though, he's not sure yet.
(8) Bryce Harper did not win the 2018 home run derby because he cheated.
(9) Kershaw's Earned Ring Average (ERA) is 0.00.
(10) Mike Minor (Rangers Pitcher) does not have 200 strikeouts in 2019. He's at 199 (National Hour 2, 10 mins 40 seconds in).
Note (10)(a): Chris agrees too. And who really cares (15% on poll do care).
(11) The 2020-2021 Mets, during the Coronavirus outbreak, are 0-3 and Jacob deGrom is somehow 0-1 with a 0.00 ERA and 1 complete game. The deGrominator. (Google Podcast 3/30 Hour #3 @ 19:20)

HOCKEY

(1) Ray Bourque doesn't have a ring.
(2) Alex Ovechkin may or may not have won the Stanley Cup against the Vegas Golden Knights.
Note (2)(a): "I mean he beat an expansion team . . . bunch of players nobody wanted" (We get the sense that Dan agrees).

TENNIS

(1) If anyone wins a major in Female Tennis without Serena Williams playing, it does not count and they have 0 rings.
(2) If Maria Sharapova wins a grand slam in which Serena isnt competing it doesnt count.

GOLF

(2) Vijay Singh did not play in the 2018 Masters.

SOCCER

(1) Lionel Messi is stripped of all his achievements for using HGH. He never played soccer. He is still 5'1". "Fraud."
(2) Soccer is dead.

MISCELLANEOUS

(1) Aqua?
(2) Rings plus-minus is the only way to measure greatness.
(3) The HBO Andre the Giant film was good, not great, and Stugotz didn’t learn anything.
(4) Benoit Lecomte (guy they interviewed) can not and will not swim from San Francisco to Tokyo in the personal record book because he is most likely taking a dip for a few minutes then coming back on the boat and enjoying some filet mignon by the pool.
Note (4)(a): "Do it without a yacht. And how about ya do it without the little magnetic field around you that keeps sharks away. How bout that. Allows dolphins through though? Anyway.."

[February 2020 Edition] Stugotz Personal Record Book.

Time Stamps may not be exact based on what podcast app or service you use. But they'll be close.

Football

(1) UCF is the 2017-2018 national champion.
(2) If Kirk Cousins goes to the Jaguars and not the Jets, no championship he wins will count in the personal record book (Still pending sort of since Kirk is with the Vikings now – possible in future he could go to Jags).
(3) Eli manning has 1 ring. He doesnt get one for throwing a ball into David Tyree's face / Tyree getting a football stuck in his helmet.
(4) Carson Wentz has a SB 52 ring. Foles doesnt.
(5) The Raiders defeated the Patriots in their divisional playoff matchup in 2002 (Tuck Rule game), then would defeat the Rams in Super Bowl 36. In this scenario also, Bill Belichick was also "fired and looking for a job" after the Tuck Rule game and has 0 rings.
(6) If the 2017 Patriots won Super Bowl 52, James Harrison would not have a ring (Patriots lost to Eagles).
(7) Peyton Manning has one ring (Broncos ring does not count).
(8) Peyton Manning must give such ring he lost (above) to Von Miller, who thus has 2 rings.
(9) Aaron Rodgers can have all the rings he wants for keeping all of central Wisconsin employed.
(10) Brian Billick has 0 rings (2000 Ravens SB) because that defense carried him.
(11) Tony Boselli is a Hall of Famer.
(12) Tarik Cohen is an honorary Jew.
(13) JuJu Smith-Schuster is also an honorary Jew. L'Chaim.
(14) Drew brees has three rings for winning the super bowl for the city if new orleans (there was discussion on this where the number started at three, went up to five, came down to two, but iirc it ended up at three)
(15) Mike McCarthy has no Super Bowl rings. Dan also has this in his record book. In fact, McCarthy has -3 (negative three) rings.
(16) Any Super Bowl rings Antonio Brown gets with the Patriots will not count in the Stugotz personal record book. 9/9 Weekend Observations National Hour 2.
(17) Ohio States 76 to 5 victory over Miami (OH) on 9/21/19 does not count.

Basketball

Kevin Durant
(1) If Westbrook wins a championship and beats Kevin Durant along the way in the playoffs, Westbrook will have won 2 championship rings.
(2) Kevin Durant has -1 rings (negative 1 rings). As of 4/11/18 Durant has -4 Rings. Here is a tweet transcript of the conversation where this was discovered. https://twitter.com/AndFinallyDLB/status/984180896927543297
(3) If Kevin Durant wins an NBA title for the NY Knicks, he will gain 11 rings. However, as seen above, Durant has -4 rings and if he were to remain at -4, then win for the Knicks, he will have 7 rings total. This number is subject to change based on Stugotz altering the "-4" current total as seen recently when Stugotz adjusted the number from 0 rings to -1 rings to -4 rings. Another interesting note is that Stugotz has also said, If the Warriors won a championship playing 3 on 5 Kevin Durant would have 1 ring. I am unsure if this means he would gain +1 ring, and therefore be down to -3 rings total, or whether it means if they win a championship 3 on 5, he would be at (positive)+1 rings total.
(4) Kevin Durant's dagger in Game 3 did not count, because according to Stugotz none of Durant's stats count. KD's official statline last night was 0/0/0 and the Cavs blew the Warriors out by 40.
(5) Anything Kevin Durant has done with the Warriors is not n Stugotz' personal record scroll. (Stugotz did not take his feathered pen and write anything in his scroll (King Roy approves)).
(6) Westbrook had ALL of KD's rings.
(7) For every time KD says he doesn't give a BLEEP, Stugotz adds 2 "I do give a BLEEPS" in the personal record book.
(8) Per Dan, speaking on Stugotz' behalf, KD has no Olympic Gold Medals (9/18/19 National Hour 1 @ 00:07:50).
Michael Jordan
(1) Jordan has 9 rings since (a) the Rockets have to give their 2 rings from 1994 and 1995 to Jordan, and (b) the Bulls would have won the 1999 Finals over the Spurs if Jordan didn't retire.
(2) Michael Jordan was suspended for 2 years for gambling (Said 4/25/18 Hour 2, 14:30 in podcast). But MJ still has 9 rings as see above.
(3) Any game Michael Jordan played wearing the uniform #45 does not count.
LeBron James
(1) If LeBron James goes to the GSW, every championship he wins will result in a deduction of 2 previously won championships.
(2) The Miami Heat LeBron teams were the GREATEST teams in the history of sports (5/7/18 Local Hour).
(3) The Miami Heat LeBron teams were also the MOST INTERESTING teams in the history of sports.
(4) If, after the 2018 NBA Playoffs, (1) LeBron does not make it to the finals and the Celtics do, & (2) The Houston Rockets do not make it to the finals and the Warriors do, & (3) then LeBron goes to the Houston Rockets for the next season, LeBron is allowed to win rings that count in Stu's personal record book. HOWEVER Harden & Chris Paul, if they remain on the Rockets with LeBron on the team, are not allowed to have any of the rings won with LeBron count in Stu's personal record book. To quote the big man Stu (with Dan agreeing of course), "Do it on your own” (Dan agrees here).
(5) If LeBron wins an NBA Championship with the 2018 Lakers roster (as of 7/23/18) then that wins counts for 6 rings. Thus LeBron has 9 rings.
Kyrie Irving
(1) Kyrie Irving hit one of the biggest shots in NBA Finals History, but was only in that position because of LeBron James. Kyrie Irving, did hit one of the biggest shots in NBA Finals history that won everyone on that team a Ring, except for you (Kyrie). (3/9/20 Hour #3; Google Podcast @ 07:00). Note: "A little revision to the uhhh Stugotz Personal Record Book that I'll come around to writing...or Mike will." I'M WRITING IT YOU IDIOT MORON JACKAL!!!
Misc. Basketball
(1) The Houston Rockets have 0 (none) NBA Championship victories. See a previous bullet, because Michael Jordan actually is in possession of those rings since Jordan would have won those championships if he stayed (1994 and 1995 did not count for Houston). BUT WAIT - CONFLICTING HOT TAKES AHEAD Stugotz has also said Jordan didn't get the Rockets' rings because he was actually suspended for gambling. NEEDS CLARIFICATION PLEASE.
(2) Steve Kerr has no rings as a coach. In fact, he has never even coached a game.
(3) Mychal Thompson (Klay's dad) has no rings. (Said on Zach Harper podcast).
(4) Clyde Drexler no rings (Said on Zach Harper podcast).
(5) Giannis Antetekoumpo is pronounced Yani Adababoombo.
(6) As long as James Harden has his beard, he cannot win any championships. If the Rockets win a ring, then the ring goes to the beard.
(7) Lamarcus Aldridge cost the Spurs game 2 of the 2017 Western Conference Semifinals, even though they won.
(8) If the Sixers happen to win a championship, Sam Hinkie gets a ring.
(9) Chris Paul has NOT made Western Conference Final since he had to join the Rockets to do so.
(10) Michael Jordan winning the NBA Finals in 1999 also means that Tim Duncan only has four rings instead of 5 rings.
(11) The Warriors only have 1 ring (Durant still has none/negative)
(12) Boogie Cousins cannot win a NBA Championship and have it count if he does so with the Warriors.
(13) Billy Donovan was the NBA Coach of the Year in 2017 (12/13/17 @ 28:10 Hour 1). The Thunder Blowing the 3-1 lead to the Warriors that year had nothing to do with Donovan. It was Durant's fault.
(14) The OKC Thunder actually did win the WCF against the Warriors in 2017 when up 3-1. This does not apply to Durant though. The Thunder also beat whoever they would have played in the Finals. Durant still no ring.

Baseball

Babe Ruth
(1) Babe Ruth is black.
(2) Babe Ruth never hit a baseball. Not once.
(3) Babe Ruth is the number two black baseball player of all time behind Barry Larkin.
(4) Babe Ruth is NOT a top 20 Baseball player of all time. He's a pitcher. However This is somewhat confusing/interesting Because: Stugotz has said "Babe Ruth is the number two black baseball player of all time behind Barry Larkin." This MUST mean Stugotz can only have 1 black player in his top 20 Baseball players of all time Barry Larkin. The only way it can work logically is if in the list of greatest players #1 through #20, only Barry Larkin is on the latter 1 through 20 list. I would like some clarification on if he wishes to change this take/record.
(5) Babe Ruth is also not a top 20 pitcher of all time.
Misc. Baseball
(1) (Stated on 05/03/2018 @ 12:38:52 P.M) Stugotz has declared that in his personal record book, Baseball no longer allows pitchers to hit (Excluding Bartolo Colon, and Shohei Ohtani). You are either a pitcher or a hitter. Not both.
(2) If the Dodgers won the 2017 World Series Clayton Kershaw would not have had a ring.
(3) Wade Boggs DOES have a ring because he rode around on a horse with beer afterward.
(4) Clayton Kershaw did not win an MVP award because the award for pitchers was already given, the CY Young award.
(5) Miami beat LSU in the 1996 College Baseball World Series .
(6) The 1986 NY Mets did not win the World Series against the Boston Redsocks (this pains Stugotz).
(7) The Red Sox may have won the 1986 World Series, taking a ring away from the Mets. Stugotz has to think about it though, he's not sure yet.
(8) Bryce Harper did not win the 2018 home run derby because he cheated.
(9) Kershaw's Earned Ring Average (ERA) is 0.00

(9) Chris Cote owns all intellectual property rights to the "Friends" (TV Show) Movie with a misleading preview that eventually has a climax leading to an intense murder mystery. (10/29/19 Hour #2 @ 03:15). If they make this without crediting Cote, they're stealing it.

(3) Eli manning has 1 ring. He doesnt get one for throwing a ball into David Tyree's face / Tyree getting a football stuck in his helmet.
(4) Carson Wentz has a SB 52 ring. Foles doesnt.
(5) The Raiders defeated the Patriots in their divisional playoff matchup in 2002 (Tuck Rule game), then would defeat the Rams in Super Bowl 36. In this scenario also, Bill Belichick was also "fired and looking for a job" after the Tuck Rule game and has 0 rings.
(6) If the 2017 Patriots won Super Bowl 52, James Harrison would not have a ring (Patriots lost to Eagles).
(7) Peyton Manning has one ring (Broncos ring does not count).
(8) Peyton Manning must give such ring he lost (above) to Von Miller, who thus has 2 rings.
(9) Aaron Rodgers can have all the rings he wants for keeping all of central Wisconsin employed.
(10) Brian Billick has 0 rings (2000 Ravens SB) because that defense carried him.
(11) Tony Boselli is a Hall of Famer.
(12) Tarik Cohen is an honorary Jew.

(16) Any Super Bowl rings Antonio Brown gets with the Patriots will not count in the Stugotz personal record book. 9/9 Weekend Observations National Hour 2.
(17) Ohio States 76 to 5 victory over Miami (OH) on 9/21/19 does not count.

Basketball

Kevin Durant
(1) If Westbrook wins a championship and beats Kevin Durant along the way in the playoffs, Westbrook will have won 2 championship rings.
(2) Kevin Durant has -1 rings (negative 1 rings). As of 4/11/18 Durant has -4 Rings. Here is a tweet transcript of the conversation where this was discovered. https://twitter.com/AndFinallyDLB/status/984180896927543297
(3) If Kevin Durant wins an NBA title for the NY Knicks, he will gain 11 rings. However, as seen above, Durant has -4 rings and if he were to remain at -4, then win for the Knicks, he will have 7 rings total. This number is subject to change based on Stugotz altering the "-4" current total as seen recently when Stugotz adjusted the number from 0 rings to -1 rings to -4 rings. Another interesting note is that Stugotz has also said, If the Warriors won a championship playing 3 on 5 Kevin Durant would have 1 ring. I am unsure if this means he would gain +1 ring, and therefore be down to -3 rings total, or whether it means if they win a championship 3 on 5, he would be at (positive)+1 rings total.
(4) Kevin Durant's dagger in Game 3 did not count, because according to Stugotz none of Durant's stats count. KD's official statline last night was 0/0/0 and the Cavs blew the Warriors out by 40.
(5) Anything Kevin Durant has done with the Warriors is not n Stugotz' personal record scroll. (Stugotz did not take his feathered pen and write anything in his scroll (King Roy approves)).
(6) Westbrook had ALL of KD's rings.
(7) For every time KD says he doesn't give a BLEEP, Stugotz adds 2 "I do give a BLEEPS" in the personal record book.
(8) Per Dan, speaking on Stugotz' behalf, KD has no Olympic Gold Medals (9/18/19 National Hour 1 @ 00:07:50).
Michael Jordan
(1) Jordan has 9 rings since (a) the Rockets have to give their 2 rings from 1994 and 1995 to Jordan, and (b) the Bulls would have won the 1999 Finals over the Spurs if Jordan didn't retire.
(2) Michael Jordan was suspended for 2 years for gambling (Said 4/25/18 Hour 2, 14:30 in podcast). But MJ still has 9 rings as see above.
(3) Any game Michael Jordan played wearing the uniform #45 does not count.
LeBron James
(1) If LeBron James goes to the GSW, every championship he wins will result in a deduction of 2 previously won championships.
(2) The Miami Heat LeBron teams were the GREATEST teams in the history of sports (5/7/18 Local Hour).
(3) The Miami Heat LeBron teams were also the MOST INTERESTING teams in the history of sports.
(4) If, after the 2018 NBA Playoffs, (1) LeBron does not make it to the finals and the Celtics do, & (2) The Houston Rockets do not make it to the finals and the Warriors do, & (3) then LeBron goes to the Houston Rockets for the next season, LeBron is allowed to win rings that count in Stu's personal record book. HOWEVER Harden & Chris Paul, if they remain on the Rockets with LeBron on the team, are not allowed to have any of the rings won with LeBron count in Stu's personal record book. To quote the big man Stu (with Dan agreeing of course), "Do it on your own” (Dan agrees here).
(5) If LeBron wins an NBA Championship with the 2018 Lakers roster (as of 7/23/18) then that wins counts for 6 rings. Thus LeBron has 9 rings.
Misc. Basketball
(1) The Houston Rockets have 0 (none) NBA Championship victories. See a previous bullet, because Michael Jordan actually is in possession of those rings since Jordan would have won those championships if he stayed (1994 and 1995 did not count for Houston). BUT WAIT - CONFLICTING HOT TAKES AHEAD Stugotz has also said Jordan didn't get the Rockets' rings because he was actually suspended for gambling. NEEDS CLARIFICATION PLEASE.
(2) Steve Kerr has no rings as a coach. In fact, he has never even coached a game.
(3) Mychal Thompson (Klay's dad) has no rings. (Said on Zach Harper podcast).
(4) Clyde Drexler no rings (Said on Zach Harper podcast).
(5) Giannis Antetekoumpo is pronounced Yani Adababoombo.
(6) As long as James Harden has his beard, he cannot win any championships. If the Rockets win a ring, then the ring goes to the beard.
(7) Lamarcus Aldridge cost the Spurs game 2 of the 2017 Western Conference Semifinals, even though they won.
(8) If the Sixers happen to win a championship, Sam Hinkie gets a ring.
(9) Chris Paul has NOT made Western Conference Final since he had to join the Rockets to do so.
(10) Michael Jordan winning the NBA Finals in 1999 also means that Tim Duncan only has four rings instead of 5 rings.
(11) The Warriors only have 1 ring (Durant still has none/negative)
(12) Boogie Cousins cannot win a NBA Championship and have it count if he does so with the Warriors.
(13) Billy Donovan was the NBA Coach of the Year in 2017 (12/13/17 @ 28:10 Hour 1). The Thunder Blowing the 3-1 lead to the Warriors that year had nothing to do with Donovan. It was Durant's fault.
(14) The OKC Thunder actually did win the WCF against the Warriors in 2017 when up 3-1. This does not apply to Durant though. The Thunder also beat whoever they would have played in the Finals. Durant still no ring.

Baseball

Babe Ruth
(1) Babe Ruth is black.
(2) Babe Ruth never hit a baseball. Not once.
(3) Babe Ruth is the number two black baseball player of all time behind Barry Larkin.
(4) Babe Ruth is NOT a top 20 Baseball player of all time. He's a pitcher. However This is somewhat confusing/interesting Because: Stugotz has said "Babe Ruth is the number two black baseball player of all time behind Barry Larkin." This MUST mean Stugotz can only have 1 black player in his top 20 Baseball players of all time Barry Larkin. The only way it can work logically is if in the list of greatest players #1 through #20, only Barry Larkin is on the latter 1 through 20 list. I would like some clarification on if he wishes to change this take/record.
(5) Babe Ruth is also not a top 20 pitcher of all time.
Misc. Baseball
(1) (Stated on 05/03/2018 @ 12:38:52 P.M) Stugotz has declared that in his personal record book, Baseball no longer allows pitchers to hit (Excluding Bartolo Colon, and Shohei Ohtani). You are either a pitcher or a hitter. Not both.
(2) If the Dodgers won the 2017 World Series Clayton Kershaw would not have had a ring.
(3) Wade Boggs DOES have a ring because he rode around on a horse with beer afterward.
(4) Clayton Kershaw did not win an MVP award because the award for pitchers was already given, the CY Young award.
(5) Miami beat LSU in the 1996 College Baseball World Series .
(6) The 1986 NY Mets did not win the World Series against the Boston Redsocks (this pains Stugotz).
(7) The Red Sox may have won the 1986 World Series, taking a ring away from the Mets. Stugotz has to think about it though, he's not sure yet.
(8) Bryce Harper did not win the 2018 home run derby because he cheated.
(9) Kershaw's Earned Ring Average (ERA) is 0.00
(10) Mike Minor (Rangers Pitcher) does not have 200 strikeouts in 2019. He's at 199 (National Hour 2, 10 mins 40 seconds in). Chris agrees too. And who really cares (15% on poll do care).

Hockey

(1) Ray Bourque doesn't have a ring.
(2) Alex Ovechkin may or may not have won the Stanley Cup against the Vegas Golden Knights. "I mean he beat an expansion team . . . bunch of players nobody wanted" (We get the sense that Dan agrees).

Tennis

(1) If anyone wins a major in Female Tennis without Serena Williams playing, it does not count and they have 0 rings.
(2) If Maria Sharapova wins a grand slam in which Serena isnt competing it doesnt count.

Golf

(1) If Jason Day wins the 2018 Masters, it counts as an American winning (as far as bets are concerned).
(2) Vijay Singh did not play in the 2018 Masters.

Soccer

(1)Lionel Messi is stripped of all his achievements for using HGH. He never played soccer. He is still 5'1". "Fraud."

Miscellaneous

(1) Aqua?
(2) Rings plus-minus is the only way to measure greatness.
(3) The HBO Andre the Giant film was good, not great and Stugotz didn’t learn anything.
(4) Benoit Lecomte (guy they interviewed) can not and will not swim from San Francisco to Tokyo in the personal record book because he is most likely taking a dip for a few minutes then coming back on the boat and enjoying some filet mignon by the pool. "Do it without a yacht. And how about ya do it without the little magnetic field around you that keeps sharks away. How bout that. Allows dolphins through though? Anyway.."
(5) Justify (the horse) only has a double crown. This is the first ever double crown.
(6) Tango and Cash is in the action movie hall of fame and Cliffhanger is the greatest 5 minute intro of any movie of all time.
(7) Maximum Security (a horse) won the 2019 Kentucky Derby.
(8) Fruit Stripes Gum is NOT a 1st Ballot Hall of Famer in Stu's 'Gum Hall of Fame' because "it loses it's flavor so quickly" (08/12/2019 | Hour 2 @ 15:25). Also, "[...] Bazooka...1st Ballot Hall of Famer." Also, "Big League Chew..1st Ballot."
(9) Chris Cote owns all intellectual property rights to the "Friends" (TV Show) Movie with a misleading preview that eventually has a climax leading to an intense murder mystery. (10/29/19 Hour #2 @ 03:15). If they make this without crediting Cote, they're stealing it.
(10) That guy killed the pigeon (12/10 Hour 3 @ 08:20).

Questions Answers
How much did Mel Blanc teach you about voices? Can you even learn that or do you have to be born with it? He didn't really teach me anything, he was just very kind and supportive. I think you have to be born with (a) the ear to hear different voices, and (b) the pipes to be able to execute them. Mr. DNA gets a lot of credit.
Out of the characters you voice in The Simpsons - who is your favourite? C. Montgomery Burns. He's pure evil. Most evil people make the mistake of diluting it. That's just wrong.
I have a question I have wanted to ask for decades. Why did you wear a Shrewsbury Town football (soccer) shirt in Spinal Tap? Always seemed incongruous to me. I was shopping for Tap wardrobe in London before going on the road (for a few gigs) watching Saxon, and the Shrewbury shirt was just on a rack at a street vendor's. It spoke to me. It said, "not Premier League".
Hey Handsome Dan, you're not listening, are you? I could say anything... Uh huh.
What's your most memorable moment from a guest celebrity voice on The Simpsons? Without doubt the episode on which MJ guested. He was 45 min late to a readthrough in his manager's house, during which we were all so, I don't know, surprised or flustered or something that there was almost no small talk while we waited. Then, during a second readthrough at Fox (we used to do those), he read his spoken lines, and nodded across the table when his character was supposed to break into a version of "Ben". At that point, a white guy sitting across the table from him began singing that part in a very MJ-ish voice. I whispered to Yeardley, "we're probably paying just enough for the talking Michael, but we can't afford the singing Michael".
How much longer do you think The Simpsons will last? Til Fox gets another 8'clock comedy hit with which to replace us. So, about 43 more years.
Seriously, how bad of a film was The Day The Clown Cried? It was perfect. If I said to you, "Jerry Lewis plays a clown in a concentration camp", you couldn't imagine it better.
Looking broadly at TV comedy, what has been a golden age of creativity in your opinion? And is it harder or easier for the talent to dictate the boundaries as time goes on? I look back at the first real golden age of TV comedy--the fifteen years from Bilko and Honeymooners through Dick Van Dyke--partly because those shows were written by one, two or a few people. Comedy today is gang-written--16 writers in The Room--and it has less of an individual voice, imho.
How much creative input have you generally had over the characters you've voiced in the Simpsons? Is there a lot of room for improvising lines, or do you generally stick to the script? With one of the show's best characters (in my opinion!) Mr Burns, for example, how much input did you have from the beginning into creating him? I created the voice from scratch, just from seeing a one-line description of the character in an early script. As to dialog, very little improv happens; TV is a writers' medium.
From Wikipedia. In 1957, Shearer played the precursor to the Eddie Haskell character in the pilot episode for the television series Leave It to Beaver, but his parents decided not to let him continue in the role so that he could have a normal childhood. What went wrong? Also, tell us about that. You don't think I turned out normal? Thank you. It's all true. I have no memory of actually doing that ep, though I've seen myself on the DVD, so I know it happened.
Does it ever seem odd or disjointed to you that Fox as a comedy channel has such brash, left-leaning comedy, Simpsons, Family Guy etc... Yet so much of the FOX network is a conservative mouthpiece, essentially despised by left-leaning people? No, because the corporation as a whole just goes where it thinks there's a market.
When writing, how do you stay on task and write effectively? Any other screenwriting tips would be awesome. Collaborating helps a lot, cause you police each other. Solo, it's just self-discipline, sad to say When I wrote my first (and so far, only) novel, I gave myself two rules: write something every day, no matter how much or how little, and don't go backwards--i.e., don't start editing first draft before you're finished with it.
Which Simpsons character makes you laugh the most? The cat lady.
Harry, it's your last night in New Orleans. Where do you go? Where do you eat? Where do you go see music? I eat a starter at each of about 12 favorite restuarants, and walk along Frenchmen St. to hear music from about 10 different clubs. See, I cheated.
Donuts. Is there anything they can't do? End.
When people see you in the street, what is the most common reference that gets shouted at you? "Look where you're goin!"
Thoughts on Tina Fey? She must know something about Lorne the rest of the women on that show didn't know.
Harry, what's you favorite Spinal Tap song? Mine's "Rock and Roll Creation" because I thing the bridge is amazing. I have a soft spot for "Clam Caravan" because it's so much fun to play.
I had a dream that a new Spın̈al Tap movie was being made in which you spoke with Mr. Burns' voice for the entire duration. Can you make this dream come true? Legally, no.
My favorite fake store name that I've seen in the Simpsons was a hair cutting store called "Hairy Shearers". Who came up with that? No idea.
How did you end up playing with Fall Out Boy on Conan? It was cool to see you randomly appear and the Simpsons reference of their band name is funny but i was watching in disbelief just saying, "how did that happen?" They called and asked if I would do it. I was as floored as you were. Great guys.
Hi Harry, did you ever consider giving up and getting a normal job when times were hard? If so, what serious jobs did you try your hand at? Not when times are hard, but between my child acting and my adult showbiz days, I tried teaching school, journalism, and working at the Calif. State Legislature.
I want to see another Spinal Tap/The Folksmen reunion. One that I could attend. Do you think this will ever happen? Stranger things have happened. I can say no more. Yet.
Which episode of The Simpsons is the absolute worst? I hate it in AMAs when people only ask about favorites. If I answered you, some people in LA would be mad at me. And we can't have that.
Listening to Le Show for 20 years, I get the impression that your cynicism is boundless. Do you think people have the power to change big issues that aren’t under their direct control, or have you given up? It's not cynicism--that's what the people in DC have. It's skepticism, and no, I don't think people have that power. But we should act as if we do.
Harry, How much time do you spend a year preparing for Katie Couric to finally 'get' you? I'm giving it my full attention at the moment.
I've got a two-parter for you! I) what is your favourite movie of all time ever? and, ii) what is the strangest thing a fan has ever asked you/to do? PS You are super talented. Thanks. No real answer to ii, fans have been too nice. 1) would be "Dr. Strangelove", with the original "To Be Or Not To Be" being a verrry close second.
Will you keep doing The Simpsons as long as they keep writing them and do you feel like the quality has gone down over all these years? I will.
Shearer, eh? EXCELLENT. M.Burns is my favourite character by far. I love your voice. <3. Relieve the hounds!
What are your favorite television shows these days? The one where Anderson Cooper giggles.
What's your favorite quote of any character you voice? Voice: CM Burns. Voice or physical: Derek Smalls.
Harry, just want to say I'm a huge fan of the Simpsons. Now, my question is this: How do you voice so many characters? Is there some sort of secret to voicing them all? No secret, just, as noted above, the luck to have gotten a couple of great gifts from the DNA trunk.
How was Spinal Tap approached for playing at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert? And what's your favorite memory from being there? Brian May asked us to do it, we were, as the Brits say, chuffed. My favorite memory is of the moment when Nigel was supposed to play his first power chord, and the amp wasn't working. In my memory it seems as if the pause lasted minutes. i've just seen it on YouTube, and it's probably seven seconds. So don't call me as a witness in any trials you may be an accused in.
Hey Harry, thanks for doing this. How many hours a week do you spend prepping for Le Show? How long does it take to record an episode? Is it basically live? Lastly and not a question: Your Tom Brokaw is the best ever. I will never forget the time you threw it to Tom to say "Alan Mulally." Thanks. It's about 5-6 hours of prep a week, although if I do a song there's more time involved, because I'm not that strong a swimmer. The show goes out live usually, though while I've been acting in the play in London, I've had to pre-record because we do a Sunday matinee.
Have you ever caught yourself dreaming in one of your character's voices, and if so which one is closest to an alter ego? No, but I don't remember all that many of my dreams. I do have very benign dreams, though. For me, a nightmare is going to the Post Office and discovering they're out of stamps. True story, I really did have that dream. Pissed me off, too.
Can you please tell me where the Fighting Hellfish treasure is now? No idea. But if I see it, I'll call you.
What do you think is the most important international issue of the moment? At the moment, it seems to be the run-up to a military intervention in Syria by US/UK.
What voice will you use for your last words on your death bed? (Pretty grim but I'm curious) The voice of a bitter old fart. I'm working on it now.
Hello Harry. Seems like you and Norm Macdonald have worked together on many things. Everybody he graces seems to have a decent "Norm-story". Do you have any to share? Norm and I have never crossed paths, actually. So I like him.
Hi Harry. I've always been a big fan of SNL growing up, but didn't actually know who you were until I was a teenager and got into film. A History of White People and then The Big Uneasy have both inspired me in different ways, and could have been what pushed me to want to make film in the first place. So thank you. For my question, I wanted to ask about what the transition was like, if any, from T.V. to film and from acting to writing/directing. In this new digital age, do you see the entertainment industry becoming more or less about "who you know?" Any advice you could give for a young filmmaker? Thanks again, keep on doing what you do. Well, the transition wasn't really a transition. I co-wrote "Real Life" with Albert Brooks (and Monica Johnson), and then worked on "Fernwood 2Night" with Martin Mull, both before SNL and Tap. So it was kind of bouncing back and forth, sometimes one medium, sometimes another. Sometimes acting, sometimes writing. I started directing when I did a short for SNL and then another one for the early Letterman show, and then I directed two specials for Cinemax and the "History of White People" series for HBO. I think the digital age has so far been only half-liberating: it's easier to make content, but in terms of feature films, the distribution pipeline is still controlled by a few companies. It's getting better, thanks to Netflix, but it's still easy to make something and very difficult to get people to see it without someone spending big $$ on your behalf to market it. But you learn every time you do a project, so don't turn anything down.
Did Jerry Lewis ever give you any crap for speaking out about "The Day The Clown Cried"? No, I think Jerry was more upset about the piece I did about the Telethon that appeared in Film Comment in the late 70s.
"Just Plain Sam" got me through my senior year of high school; I fell in love with your basso profundo then, and have nursed a vague compulsion to chew your eyebrows ever since...but I digress. What sort of mental contortions do you employ to keep all the voices in your head separated -- and to bring them out on cue as necessary? It's the same mechanism that keeps all the songs you know in a different compartment of your brain, I guess.
Mr Shearer, thanks for doing this AMA. Huge fan of your work including Le Show and especially The Big Uneasy which was a massive eye opener for me. Do you ever feel there will be a time that the Corp of Engineers will truly apologize for their failings before and after Katrina? Thanks, and I'm so glad you saw the film. I think the closest we ever came to seeing a Corps apology was on May 30, 2006, when the then head of the Corps, Lt. Gen Strock, took responsibility for the catastrophic failure of the Corps' "hurricane protection system", that led to the flooding. Interestingly, he either retired or was retired within two months. But aside from that, the Corps of Engineers operates inside a culture of impunity. And why shouldn't they? After they were complicit in the deaths of more than 2000 people and the near-destruction of a major metropolis, their bosses--Congress--told them, "Here's a lot more money, try again, maybe do better." Some accountability.
Harry, what time is it? It's now.
Did you know growing up that you would do so much writing and voice acting? As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Well, I loved being in show biz as a kid, but I thought I'd go into government or journalism as an adult. Boy, am I glad I didn't.
Electric bass or double bass and why? Definitely upright. They're both excellent instruments, and each has its own challenges, but making that big ol' piece of wood vibrate is a feeling unlike almost any other. I said almost. And I was referring to the bass.
You're an great bass player, what have you been doing recently with music? Thank you, I'm adequate, sometimes. I've been playing upright on some gigs with Judith in London, and I practice on upright every day.
I read somewhere that you are one of the only people to have seen the notoriously vanished Jerry Lewis movie, "The Day The Clown Cried"...any chance you can shed some light on the extent of its awfulness? Yes, as I think I once said in Spy magazine, it was like looking at a painting of Auschwitz on black velvet.
Hello! Thanks for all the entertainment. I've got the Simpsonic CDs and love your work as Smithers, though who could forget your role in Godzilla! Anyway, what's your take on the fact that Smithers was supposed to be black, did it influence your style at all? Secondly, how do I go about getting an autograph? Thanks! You can send a request through the email at harryshearer.com. I keep hearing this about Smithers supposed to be black, and I actually have no memory of it from the time. Of course, all I remember about the early days of the show was the ping-pong table in the Zanuck Theater, where we used to record...
Any stories about Jack Benny? You were in an episode of his tv show. I was in many, I worked for him for 8 years. The most generous man, and one of the smartest about comedy. Once I was accepted into the family of that show, it was a warm and supportive place to be. And utterly professional--we were there to do our work, and there were no scenes, no sturm and drang about comedy. It was just assumed that everybody was there because they knew what they were doing. A wonderful experience.
Any closer to finishing 'Saucy Jack'? Yes, Michael finished the title song, and it's performed in the "Unwigged" show we did four years ago, out on DVD.
What advice would you give someone interested in getting into voice acting? Thanks for doing this, and for all the entertainment! As I said earlier in the thread, make a recording of your OWN voices--not your version of voices already being done, those people have gigs. Then look up reputable agents who specialize in voice talent and sent them your tape/CD/thumbdrive. Then pray.
Simple question: What is your favorite color? :) White, because it includes all the others. Yich, I disgusted myself.
One more question... any reason why "Nothing Ever Happens in Blaine" didn't make it into the final cut of "Waiting for Guffman"? That's been a burr under my saddle for years. I think the answer, as with most such situations, is that you have to take out things you love when they impede the flow of a film.
Is there any voice you wish you could do but just can't pull off? I've tried for years (only once in public) to do a kick-ass Geraldo Rivera impersonation. Can't do it. But it took me a long time to "get" Dick Clark, so there's hope.
What current cartoon show, or any show for that matter, would you have liked to work on most? I don't really have a yearning to be part of any other show. I mean, as kid, if I could have been magically transformed into the third member of Bob & Ray, I would have done it in a second. But that was then.
Thanks for all the hilarity over the years Which was your favorite of the "mockumentaries" to make? "This is Spinal Tap", because it was a total collaboration start to finish, and because it had the hardest road from concept through fruition.
Mr. Burns. Just an evil slave driving power baron, or is he misunderstood? More precisely, what do you think his most redeeming traits are? Does he have any? He has none. That's his charm.
Do you ever get confused between voices (especially during a Burns-Smithers conversation)? It must get so overwhelming having to remember a databank of various voices. No, they stay as separate as different songs do in our brains. At least, so far.
Thanks for doing this AMA Harry - any chance we'll see you in another Christopher Guest movie? Chris has had his hands full for the past year with his TV series, as have I with mine ("Nixon's the One", coming next year). One hopes that if he returns to movies, he'll call me. Never have a better, or more frightening, time than working in those films.
Hi Harry! Thanks so much for doing an AMA! How hard is it not to crack up when you are ad-libbing with the other Spinal Tap crew? We improvise. Sorry to be pedantic, but ad-libbing is about talking, improvising (done right) is about listening. We're all pretty good about avoiding laughter, unless Mr. Fred Willard is among us, at which point all bets are off.
Thank you for all the laughs over the years. A simple question: Any regrets? Personal? Professional? My only regret is that human life is so fleeting.
Hello Harry! I don't have any questions for you. Just wanted to tell you that you're amazing and keep up the fantastic work! Well, okay, maybe one question - Any chance of a Spinal Tap sequel? One never says never. But...never.
I kind of figured, but it doesn't hurt to ask! Oh and also, you're bass line in Big Bottom is the catchiest damn thing I've ever heard and thanks to you, it's now stuck in my head :) On behalf of the Earworm Foundation, you're welcome.
Do you do Atty the Atom live during the Le Show broadcast/recording, or do you record his bits beforehand? No, I do him live. I just fell into doing that one day, without any forethought. Now I can't stop him.
What is your favorite Christopher Guest film? I love them all, but Mighty Wind was the most fun to do, and the most challenging, since the concert performance was shot (and recorded) live, so what you see and hear is what happened that day. I also have a soft spot for "For Your Consideration", since that was the only time I actually got to do scenes with the superb Catherine O'Hara, whom I could only admire from afar up to that point.
What kind of advice would you share with an aging writer who is reaching the point where no f*cks are given and is willing to do what it takes to give comedy and/or scriptwriting a shot? I can only give you a warning: the writing world, at least in TV, is almost as age-conscious as the acting one. A producer friend of mine refers to a meeting where he was told, in reference to a writer he wanted to hire, "you already have one 'gray' on the staff".
Do you ever bust out any of the voices just to see the reactions you will get from strangers? The voices of all the simpsons characters are so iconic that they are probably identifiable by most people you will ever meet. No, for many reasons.
Hello Harry, what is Misty Fjords up to these days? Her eyeballs.
Harry! Huge fan! I met you at the Tape Op con in NOLA in 2004. Q: Do you think "The Day the Clown Cried" will ever see the light of day? Given Jerry's recent comments after the Dutch "making-of" tape surfaced on YouTube, I seriously doubt it.
What's one thing you still need to do? Be it today or life? In career, make "J. Edgar! The Musical" a reality.
Just curious how one gets a job with Saturday Night Live? Was it one of those "I just got lucky" kind of things? Or is it possible for one to work their way up to a job on the show? I was offered the job. Three times. Once I had the good sense to say "no".
Was in intentional to have three of the major voice actors from The Simpsons to appear in the Matthew Broderick Godzilla remake? I think so. I think Dean Devlin was a big Simpsons fan, and maybe Roland E. was, too.
Favorite soft drink? Sparkling water. Preferably with very mild carbonation, a la Hildon.
I saw the world premier of "Teddy Bear's Picnic" at the Rio Theater in Monte Rio with you there. As a former employee of the Grove, I just wanted to say thank you for such an accurate portrayal of the goings on. Also, how much fun was Henry Gibson in that role? Fantastic to hear from you, and thanks. Henry was just nonstop fantastic. First, I had pretty much decided on another actor to play that role when Henry walked into the audition and just stole it with the wicked intensity of his performance. Second, while filming, Henry kept coming up with great ideas, pieces of dialog for his character, in the most unassuming, non-intrusive and creative manner. Many of his suggestions were incorporated into the final product. He was a joy.
One of my favorite segments from Late Night with Conan was you and Dan improvising Homer and Dr. Hibbert. It's brilliant. My question is: What's your favorite memory/story of time you've spent with Conan O'Brien? Playing b'ball with him before he got famous. He was very tall even then.
Vive le victory! I loved you in Animalympics! What would Gene Hacksaw say about today's gymnasts? What was it like working with Crystal and Radner? Gene is retired, and saving up for a new set of dentures, so he'sh not shaying much of anything. Great fun doing that project, shame it was deep-sixed by the US boycott of the Moscow Games. It's a movement!
What political interests does John Kerry have in promoting wat in Syria? I presume you mean war. I have no idea. I just look at actions. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, I don't ask why it wants to be a duck.
Has there ever been a joke on the show that went too far for you, whether it made it on the air or not? Have you ever talked the directors and writers out of a joke because of its content? I've objected a couple of times to jokes coming out of Flanders' mouth that used the name of Jesus in a jocular way. Not because I'm particularly offended, but because I thought Flanders wouldn't talk that way.
Hey Harry, thanks so much for doing this AMA! I know it was quite a while ago, but any fond memories of shooting the Leave It To Beaver pilot back in the day? Keep up the awesome work, looking forward to it all! Purple monkey dishwasher. Thanks, no, I actually have no memory of that shoot. If I didn't have the DVD, I wouldn't believe I had done it.
Hey, Harry! How does it feel to have been born with the gift of a golden voice? Le Show has been a personal favourite podcast of mine for quite a while now and I've often just sat down specifically to listen to, what I would describe as, your vocal hot chocolate. You know, my dad was a baritone who trained as an opera singer, so in a very real sense I owe it all to him.
Who is your favorite bassist: Mark Shubb or Derek Smalls? Derek. He's louder.
I was watching A Mighty Wind just last night! How perfect (the Skeletons of Quinto argument gets me every time). Did you actually play any of the bass for that film? Also, I'd like to express my extreme jealousy that you've seen The Day the Clown Cried. Yes, all of us played our instruments in that film, and we played "live"--no pre-records, no post fixes.
Alright, since you cheated on the last one (NO is a good city for such cheating). First day at Jazz Fest, what food do you head for first? For us, it's crawfish bread (first, and then last on the way out to fill the girlfriend's purse). There's very good jambalaya out there, and then there's the cochon de lait po-boy...
If you had to write the series finale of The Simpsons, what would you want to have in the episode? Lots of explosions.
What's your opinion on PRISM? Who wants to know?
Hi Harry! Just wanted to say thank you for all you do for the City of New Orleans and all the great characters over the years. My two favorites are Ned Flanders and Derek Smalls - EXCELLENT! ;) You are my favorite on the Simpsons, you do the best voices with Hank and Dan a close second. Do people recognize you on the street simply from your voice? Yes, that does happen more and more. Thanks for the kind words.
Thanks for doing this Harry, been a fan for many, MANY years!! Out of your amazing career, is there any one film you regret doing? Not necessarily "hate", but look back and think, "man that one was a little iffy". And please don't say Handsome Dan, because that was amazing too. No I wouldn't say that one, I'd say "The Fish That Saved Pittsburgh".
Hi Harry! I saw "The Big Uneasy" shortly after reading "Rising Tide.: Very eye opening movie when coupled with the history of the Corps noted in Rising Tide. What was your connection to New Orleans and why was this a topic you decided to pursue and bring awareness to? I live here in New Orleans, and our house was spared, so I thought the time and energy that other people in town were spending on gutting and rebuilding (and arguing with insurance co's and Road Home reps) I could devote to sharing what we knew with the rest of the country. Thanks for seeing it.
Mr. Shearer - I had a chance to see your documentary "The Big Uneasy" when you screened it in Sacramento, CA - another city like New Orleans that is protected by an extensive but crumbling levee system haphazardly built over the last century or more. Since that time (2009), do you think awareness has grown about the infrastructure issues that threaten large populations, or do you still feel there is a head in the sand attitude by those responsible for maintaining and improving large public works systems? The latter. Just compare the public response, by officials and media alike, to Hurricane Isaac in NO last year, with the internal emails from the Corps of Engineers made public recently (fixthepumps.blogspot.com). Sad but true. We'll be willfully blind again until the next disaster.
