2 Assholes Talking Music #104

We're alive!!! After what seemed like our longest break in show history the stars aligned and we turned the mics back on for another amazing show. Just Jim and Ryan this week as we shake off the dust and get back in the groove. We kept things fairly simple tonight and did what we do best, roast the week in music news. But wait, there's more!!

I'm surprised we even got through this show. Waaaay...


2 Assholes Talking Music #102

We switched gears tonight and decided that instead of music we'd talk a little Hollywood. We had the pleasure to spend some time with an old friend and actress, Kelsey Collins Keener!! She gave us an inside look on what it takes to make it in L.A., her time on Arrested Development, her upcoming movie "Paradise Cove", and I can't really remember what else because we might have drank too much. Thank again to Kelsey for putting up with our shit for a few hours. The 2 Assholes wish her nothing...
