    i can’t believe i’ve neglected to put this up. the full version of andrew and me recording our intro for the "be our guest" YBDI promo.

    dudes. we’ll be back next month.

  2. Announcement

    Hello all you hap-cats and cool kids,

    We have a bit of sad news, mixed with some really good news, and sprinkled with jokes.

    There will NOT be new episodes of You Big Dumb Idiot for a few weeks. Our schedules are going to be pretty bonkers for the next couple of months, so we’re only recording sporadically until sometime in April.

    Lindsey has started rehearsals for a play at the Station Theater in Urbana called Vanya and Sonya and Masha and Spikewhich will run from March 27 - April 12th (GO SEE IT GO SEE IT GO SEE IT). AND she’s also filming a movie—The Thinking Molecules of Titan—over the next couple of weekends. 

    And Andrew has a full docket of eating pizza in his pajamas until 1am, then bemoaning his lack of sleep at work the next morning. SO WE BOTH HAVE A LOT GOING ON, OKAY? WE ARE EQUALLY BUSY.

    Our next episode is tentatively slated to air on March 10th

    We recommend re-listening to old episodes in the interim, to keep up your strength. Or, if you’re really starving for some comedy, Andrew will likely be drinking away his sorrows at Champaign-area bars with his newfound freedom; and that’s always good for a laugh.

    Feel free to tweet/email us re: your sadness. It’s always good to talk about your feelings.

    We love you all, Marta, and we look forward to invading your earholes once more in the very near future. In the meantime, just know that we are both pretending we have microphones in front of us 24/7, staying sharp, and making fart jokes.

    All our love,

    Lindsey and Andrew
