A Mediocre Time with Tom and Dan Show

Tom and Dan were once sitting in a hotel room in Daytona Beach, Florida where the air-condition didn't work, they were out of beer, and the cable only had 2 channels that came in static free. One of their friends suggested that they leave and attempt to find something better to do to which Dan replied "Why would we want to ruin a mediocre time?" If you were to ask "Tom and Dan" what the meaning of life is, they might tell you that there is none. Born from a feeling that nothing in life truly matters and that for the most part we're all surrounded by scumbags, "Tom and Dan" figured out that there's only one true constant in life; laughter. How did they come to that conclusion? It's all they have. You see, just like the mass majority of us, "T & D" have day jobs and it was at said day job where they cued in on the fact that some of the greatest laughs came at the end of the day. There's just something about the relaxed feeling of knowing that you have very little time left at work to put in. Maybe it's the "punch drunkenness" of still being at work; no one is quite sure. There they sat in their office, the door shut to their co-workers and management, only making each other laugh to the point of tears. Finally they realized that it might not be such a bad idea to roll tape on these conversations. Why not? They would be having them anyway, taped or not, and it was fun. Both of them come from rather lengthy broadcasting careers so setting up a home studio wasn't so hard to do. And with the addition of Ross, the consummate straight man and "News Dad", things got even more "mediocre." Broadcasting since 2009 has garnered a rather extensive following for "T & D" with loyal "scumbags" (as their listeners are affectionately known) checking in from all across the world. Hundreds of shows under their belts and winners of the Orlando Weekly's "Best of Orlando 2011" for "Best Kept Secret" reassures them both that yes…no one is listening! (Best Kept Secret? HA!)

Show #482 - Dick Toast (8/2018)

Hey there gang! How’s your Saturday going?

Apologies for the show notes being a few hours (technically) late but the girls wanted to grab dinner and my internet, while out and about,  was spotty last night. Thanks to all of the fine listeners who caught us LIVE on Twitch yesterday afternoon. If you’re not already on it, head over to www.Twitch.tv/TomandDanLive - and you can watch all of our shows – “A Corporate Time with Tom and Dan” – “A Gentleman’s Guide to Manliness” – Comedian interviews – and of course, “A Mediocre Time with Tom and Dan.” It’s really fun to add that video component to the show. We think you’ll dig it.

On this week’s show:

-Butler only wears junk food shirts

-Tom is bleeding out from the cut on his ankle

-Butler is the donut deviant

-Dan the Peppermint Kid

-Samurai Swords

-Dick toast

-News with Fisher

-Being rich and wasteful

Ok. As always, thanks to all of you who listen to and support the show. It means a ton to all of us here at T&D Media and we think you're really going to like a lot of the other stuff that we have planned for the rest of the this year. I mean, it can only get better, right? Hahaha...

Love to you and yours,

This show is pretty self-explanatory. Basically, if the title includes the word "Interview" and then a proper name, you can pretty much bet that's exactly what you're going to get. In this day and age, most everything requires a "description." We don't believe in that. Just call us old school. It might also be one of our many special features or bonus shows. Wouldn't a perfect description of it sort of ruins the surprise of releasing a new and special show for you? Or we might just be being completely lazy - you'll never know. We hope that you enjoy the show and thanks, as always, for the love and support! - t&d

Show #481 - Tom Vannon Cabana Cannon (8/2018)

Good morning, folks!

Thanks to all of you that joined us LIVE on Twitch yesterday for another "Friday Free Show." The Twitch broadcasts are getting better and better. I keep chipping away at the equipment and little things in an attempt to always put back into the company whether it's gear - server space - better parties. You get the idea. Continuously evolve or at least give it a shot. 😎

We apologize for the #ffs for being a day early this week. Tom and family had to head to Miami for family business but luck for all of you, we don't like NOT doing the show. Imagine that; we really, really, really love our jobs and we just front-loaded a sh*t ton of shows and knocked it out in 4 days rather than 5. Special thanks go out to Samantha and Travis for all of their help this week to ensure that we were not going to drop the ball on any shows, could still take all of our client and business meetings, and get it all done in a non-frantic style! Hahaha...thank you guys. Best team we could ever ask for! 

On this week's show:

-Angel is in studio

-Let them eat swamp

-Recap of Angel’s night from the 9-year event

-DJ talk

-Big Time Tom

-Tom Vannon’s Cabana Cannon

-Big Booze-Amp

-Tom wants to hire a model for his fantasy football league

-Call Laura Diaz

-Robot with t***ies

-Old people and chain letters

-Awk-boner-fest

-Does the cake rise?

...

Thanks again for listening, watching, chatting, downloading, participating - all of it! You guys are amazing, and Tom and I will talk to you bright and early on Monday when we start cranking out BDM and ACT shows for you again. Have a fantastic Friday and weekend! Stay safe out there!

Show #480 - BH Brothers (7/2018)

Hey, there gang! 

I hope these show notes find you well. It's currently 5 am and I'm in the studio. Couldn't sleep. The all too typical 4:30 am insomnia and mind racing, so I figured that I'd be productive and get these notes knocked out before the girls wake up. Needless to say, I'm tired from traveling and really looking forward to having a little bit of downtime and of all things, "home time!" I don't know if you guys are like me, but traveling and especially being on a plane just sucks all of the life out of me. The dry air - the soreness from sitting for too long - the bruises from a toddler kicking the sh*t out of you. You know the deal. 

...

On this week's show:

-9-year anniversary recap

-Seth is here

-Jay, the ring announcer

-Big Nippers

-Bag of Danes

-Prank wars

-The b-hole brothers

-Tiffany’s wedding recap

-Dan got yelled at in Mexico by Andrea

-Bake your herpes

-Mexican crow attack

-Is your b-hole gluten free?

-Pimply ass Pepperoni

...

Since this is the first show back since our 9 Year Anniversary Party, please allow me to thank again all of you who took the time to come out. Based on the emails that I've been reading, you guys really, really liked this event and trust me when I tell you that I'm going to do my best to try and make the 10, 10 TIMES BETTER! (We've actually already started to plan it so there should be no surprises like there was this year! Haha...)

Love you guys!

Show #479 - Tiki-Duck (7/2018)

Wow...well, that was a thing.

No really. I didn't think that today was ever going to end. We started the day, and everything was great, but then the studio had another massive power surge and again, I'm having to dig into my computer to recover files that I should never be searching for. (You f'n hear that APC...you guys f'd me for the second time. No more. I've got to figure something else out - something better than that.) Never anyone mind - I got it all figured out, and the show is completed, but I will say that it was NOT easy. 

...

(Tooting on my CBD pen to calm the F down.)

...

On this week's show:

-Don’t wax my apples

-Dusty ti**y mug

- Lifesavers

-"The Deltona Weiner Boil"

-Catch her while she’s sleeping

-Tricky bird bj

-Call Granny Beth

-Lightning strikes the studio AGAIN!

-Tom wants to pack for Andrea

-Tiki Duck

...

Thanks to everyone for listening, tuning in and participating on Twitch, and for being the best God damned listeners in the world! We would be nothing without you guys, and we certainly appreciate all of the love and support. Hopefully, we'll see all of you guys tomorrow for our 9-year anniversary party. 

All love, and we'll see you guys tomorrow if I wake up after sleeping. :)
