ARIYNBF 116 with Dave Dameshek

Dave Dameshek— radio personality, sports writer, podcaster, Jimmy Kimmel writer and all around hilarious guy –stopped by this episode of Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend to discuss Connect 4, pickles, mustard, being fired from his radio job to be replaced by Danny Bonaduce, caring too much what other people think, David Feeney’s wife who doesn’t care what other people think, Fancy Nancy, Amelia Bedelia, pretentious 5-year-olds and an array of other fantastic things. We also did a round of Just Me Or Everyone (click here to see the JMOEs we put on the screen) and a tiny dab of HGFY. Plus iTunes Comment of the Week and more.

    If I could have one wish in life come true, it would be to live forever as a handsome, immortal billionaire super-genius.  But if I were given two wishes, the second one would definitely involve the return of the Daves of Thunder podcast.  I still miss it every week.

    RIP, and more jacuzzi thoughts.

  • Daftie

    Dameshek and Rosen? Ooh la and la, if you please.

  • boinkity

    That would be completely awesome if Trappdog could play at one of your live shows! I would even try to come down from NorCal to see that!

    how say you fishtank?

  • Llewis

    Pretty crazy that Alison and Dameshek seem to be kindred spirits despite her complete lack of sports knowledge

    The Hey Go Fuck Yourself isn’t just about negativity, it is indeed about passion.  A happy medium would be to say that it is about righteous indignation.

    Is there anyway you can post pix (like your band pix) on this site, a la Adam's podcast?

    Some homophonic humor, from out the mouth of Rosen, which you may have missed, on Adam's show: Rhode triangle and Road AIDS. Contextualized, Rhode triangle does become the joke, while Road AIDS stands alone.

    Also, the semiunhinged and completely endearing post production musings at the top of the show are fast becoming my favorite segment.

    And, in typical interdouche fashion, I'd like to give a complisult to Dave Dameshek. I never warmed to him on the radio show nor the earlier podcasts, but I find him more and more engaging and entertaining, with every appearance. So there you go. Call me Douchemael.

  • Well this was by far one of the best ARIYNBF podcasts yet. Definitely make Dameshek a recurring guest.

  • You have TWO Uncle Dicks, Alison? I only have one! I feel… inadequate 🙂
    When I was a kid, I loved calling him “Uncle Dick,” and did so with gleeful impunity. I knew that the rest of the family called him “Richard,” but I didn't care. That's how cocksure I was about Dick. It was only when I became a teenager that I suddenly felt awkward maintaining the Dick ruse. Did you experience a similar conflict, Alison? And did it inform your awesome lead guitar work in the Angoras?

    Christ, Jack Silver was right.  Listening to Dameshek is torture.  He’s the butt of Deaf Frat Guy’s shtick, only Dave doesn’t know it.  I can’t wait for the entertainment world to turn on him.  He belongs in sales.
     
    There’s nothing redeeming at all about Dameshek–his steadfast reliance on mock-earnest cliche, his fascination (or faux-fascination, or whatever) with trivia, his dreadful exaggerated midwestern drone–but here’s the worst part: he thinks it’s clever to use jackassish “alternatives” to common names or expressions.  Like saying “Mo Dameshek” instead of “my mom.”  Or “Dick Simmons” to describe exercise fairy Richard Simmons.

    It’s the opposite of clever, Dave; it’s obtuse.  You’re just creating a linguistic hurdle, the only point of which is to prevent listeners from realizing you fail humor’s number one requirement: insight.  You can’t actually provide anything new, though, because you just don’t have the wit.  You’re a hack. So, Dave Dameshek, Go Fuck Yourself.

  • This is probably better posted on iTunes, because someone needs to get to Luv2shop23 quickly and shake her out of her Fred Armisen sex dreams phase.  S'rongwichoo, girl?!   He looks like a freaky Tim Burton movie character, although that might be redundant.

    Holy Shit! This is the greatest episode of AIYNBF ever. Bring Shek often to the pod. 
    And btw, I am an evil architect, stop complaining about architecture because you think you are not pretty. Architecture can fulfill you functionally and aesthetically just the way you do it with us. You are gorgeous, get over it.

    Good chemistry.

    Have you thought about doing a solo episode, maybe a shorter one?  The podcast is called ARIYNBF, but…the ustream show that it's named after actually featured you speaking directly to the audience, via webcam.

    I know things are on a roll and you've been doing big podcast things lately, what with the live shows and all (BTW- make a blog post about your ep of Pete Holmes' podcast http://www.nerdist.com/2012/05… ; it deserves some attention)… 

    But, maybe…just maybe…  Alison Rosen's next guest should be….Alison Rosen.

     I think that is a wonderful idea…. but only if she gets on cam, wears some huge sunglasses, and wiggles a pencil… Yes, I am being selfish.

    I thought it was a great show. Can't understand the few criticisms of Dave. I thought his Carolla impression was very amusing, and his answer to why people follow sports so enthusiastically to be very insightful. Probably the best explanation I've heard. And thank you for the wonderful birthday wishes Alison! It certainly meant a lot to me on this, my 1,000th birthday.

  •  great website, i keep like ~50 episodes on my ipod, but that fills in a few i am missing
    Why Dave and Dave can't you come back for a summer special or something, nothing crazy just something for the real fans.

    Thought this was going to be an awkward display
    of opposing personalities with nothing in common.
    Turns out to be one of the best episodes with
    each of you bringing out the best in each other.
    Alison, sounds like you have a crush on the Davester –
    it was that good. And Dameshek connecting seamlessly
    with your every word. Wait, did I say how much I liked
    this episode?

     But .. but… Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend is typically 90 minutes long!!! You may need to exercise an additional 30 minutes to get full effect of the exercise/podcast paradigm, Alicia!!

    hmmm, Dave how soon we forget.  You weren't fired for Bonaduce.  There was about a year between you being fired & Danny being hired. 
    And Gary – the show didn't go off the air with Danny behind the mike either.  He was fired at the end of 2008, the show was on until my birthday, I remember it vividly – in February 2009.

    Replacing Dameshek with Bonaduce was the biggest retard move in the history of the Carolla show!  Bringing Allison on board made up for it though.  Allison is amazing.  Funny as hell, quick witted and hot.

    absolutely LOVED the show.  I could never stand Sheck as a host, way too much of a narcissist.  However, as a guest… we was delightful.  I would listen to this once a week
