Skate Fast, Eat Ass (not only will be our next T-shirt design but) is also the rubicon to cross on deciding if you're a RavenEffect Podcast fan. If you think it's vulgar, and childish and are amused by it, you've found your way home! If you find vulgarity and childishness, childish and vulgar, stop reading and listen to something else.

Rank #16: Bobby Heenan Remembered

Podcast cover

Abdullah's butchery discussed; the art form of screwdriver as foreign object*; a rabbit hole of fantasy booking, old wrestling stories & some seriously flawed new gimmicks are dove down via Busby's wrestler game. It's the first day of Autumn & apparently she loves the Rhino?! Quote of the Day gets political; Skype did not do its semi-regular show interrupting attack on Busby, which is curious because he did behave his usual dickishly; R&B (Raven & Busby) are perplexed as to who anonymously snail-mail sent Raven a monogamy / abstinence book; Raven still recommends not watching Swedish Dicks & Busby's xenophobia continues as this week it's darts players. And, of course, all the usual perversions.

*screwdriver - which screws in screws as weapon, not to be confused with the drink "screwdriver" consisting of orange juice and vodka which would not be effective in the ring...although if you threw it in someone's eyes it would burn. Huh. Guess either kind of screwdriver will work as a foreign object.

Podcast cover

How to write the perfect fan mail letter so it will get read on the air; Some 5star reviews are read;
It turns out Busby, (no, Busby doesn't get turned out by Stephen King's clown), could only do half the show at our usual irregular taping time bc of a Top Secret project. Which brings up the questions:
Will our dynamic duo be able to finish the show? Will Busby survive his super secret project? Will Raven be able to stay up past his bedtime to finish the episode (will I..  ooh, how exciting)? The only way to find out is to tune into this episode, same Raven time, same Raven channel...

or y'know, read the spoilers...

      SPOILERS:
Ha! So, whaddaya think? Think we got off our lazy asses and recorded the 2nd half?
I would've bet, not a flipping chance but holy sheepdip, we did it! We did end up recording a 2nd part to the show and you know what?
The show is still equally as idiotic. Notwithstanding that, it's just as f@&king exhausting to record. Go figure...
Oh, and of course all the usual perversions!

Ps. If you thought we were gonna forget to include our standard closing line about the "usual perversions..."
shame on you, shame shame shame!
Pps. I wonder how many people read these show descriptions.
I put a lot of work into them. I really do.
Please email me at FanMail@theRavenEffect.com and let me know if you read these...     please!
Do it for the children..   Pete O's children..
Bye bye and buy bonds,
Raven
