Episode 65: Hey all you angry DBAI fans out there! A little bird (actually, he was huge as shit!) told us that y’all had an axe to grind with The Idiom Boys for taking a little much needed R&R. Well, we’re BACK BABY and we’re older than ever! Season 4 has so much in store, you’ll be in love forevermore! We’ve been navigating our fever dreams through the dark forests of our subconscious minds in search of the fabled Slickblack Mindfuck Tree in hopes of harvesting its poisonous eggcorns to fry up in an omelet of sweet oblivion for you, our devoted fans. And by hook or by crook, we’re gonna do it, dammit! We love you…we missed you…let the feast of a trillion decibels commence!

Do Be A Monster - Goop Theory
Quick question for ya: Is there such thing as too many eyeballs? Of course not. Is there such thing as teeth that are too long and too sharp? Uh, try no. How about size? Can a monster be, like, too large? Aw, hell no! Here in the twelfth installment of Do Be A Monster, Albert and Ryan would just like to say that we like our monsters too darn big to hide! But smaller monsters are grand as well. Take the Storsjöodjuret for example: he's not unbelievably large by any means, but he does like to get wet in Lake Storsjön, and when a monster gets wet, a monster drips...and that is what's up. Then there's the Tatzelwurm. Tatzelwurms may only be seven feet long, but they do have the tendency to scare the boots off of Alpine hikers, and we think that's just creeptastic. So come join the boys as they explore some European monstrosities; you’ll be singin’ swoo swoo swoo to yourself by the end of the hour!

Episode 64: We’re doing a special choose-your-own-adventure version of DBAI for episode 64! Actually, it’s more of a Hobson’s choice adventure where you can choose any new episode to listen to as long as it’s number 64! And we know what some of you may be thinking: Why should I waste my time with this rinky-dink podcast when I could be listening to someone famous like Conan or Ron Burgundy? Well, it may surprise you to hear this, but Don’t Be An Idiom is big in Japan. Huge, even! So, suck on that dirty egg, grandma! Happy American Nightmare weekend!

#63 - King's Hogs
Episode 63: As the wind rustles the leaves of the plane trees, a little pallino rolls and bumps its way along the sand. No larger than a golf ball, he demands the respect of the entire universe; he is the real McCoy. One after the other, the bocce tumble towards their master, forever battling to be within reach of that humble, petite, white orb. Crack, swoosh, tick. Mamma mia, there is always one who wins the coveted attention of pallino, and today it is you. However, in the blink of an eye, that pattern of stationary planets so enchantingly arranged in the divots of sand must be knocked about once more…and there's the rub; the cycle continues as the wee ball travels away from the bocce, a solitary god daring all who look upon him to come to him again. There is no permanent satisfaction here, just the ceaseless yearning to be close to little pallino.

#61 - Going Full Goth
Episode 61: Is your dad sitting at the kitchen table making deck notes? Is the family dog eyeing your dad lazily from the kitchen floor? Is the murmur of Rick Williams’ voice from the living room TV slowly lulling you to either sleep or insanity? If you answered "yes" to all of these questions then you are Albert of the famed and celebrated podcast Don’t Be An Idiom. If you answered "no" to any of these questions then you are Ryan, god-king of that sonic universe earth-folk call "Don’t Be An Idiom". What’s that you say? There are “others” that one can be? Surely, you’ve been listening to Rick Williams’ murmurs for far too long. So whoever you are (of the two only choices), be sure to grab a BIG-OL' Sharpie and fill in that widow’s peak until the tax man forgets you. That’s it, you are now supreme. What else could one possibly ask for in this life…an egg in your beer?

Let's Get A Strombo
Never let it be said that The Idiom Boys are a one-trick pony. Nay, not even a two-trick pony! That’s right, the fellas are embarking on their third and possibly greatest adventure yet! It all began with a pizza box and a dream. And that pizza box became their ship, and that dream was the wind in their greasy sails that would carry them to the faraway shores of the island of Stromboli, where a smoldering volcano lies in wait like a sleeping Tolkien dragon. As with most things the dudes do, they had no idea what long-forgotten juju they were conjuring up when they first spoke the magic words, “Let’s get a strombo!”

Do Be A Monster - Ewww!
Engulfed in fog, you find yourself covered in a viscous ooze shimmering in the pale light of the barley moon. Crawling towards a distant sound, howls of horror echo through the air until you come upon an old radio, crackling like a thousand footsteps on fallen leaves. For a moment, terror grips you...until you hear the familiar voices of your old maniacal guides through monster mythology: Albert and Ryan. Momentarily distracted, you are caught off guard by a terrible maw that consumes your head...pity. But there in the awful depths of alien viscera you can still make out the rumblings of a mountain-top creature that haunts the peaks of the Rocky Mountains and a nauseating witch-companion from the Westfjords of Iceland. All is well when your head's in a bell, you suppose. As for you other miscreations, come get goopy with the boys and learn all about the Slide-Rock Bolter and the abominable Tilberi in this eighth installment of Do Be A Monstaaah!
