Title: Office Hours *Live* with Tim Heidecker (and Vic Berger and DJ Douggpound)
Post by: Pearly-Dewdrops Drops on March 24, 2019, 10:00:44 PM
I didn't want to bump the On Cinema thread for this, but are there any other fans of Tim's weekly podcast/YouTube show?

The dumb and increasingly cacophonous drops from Vic/Doug are a delight.

Does anyone else find Tim extremely unlikeable on these?  Just kind of smug and unwelcoming.  Maybe I saw some bad ones back in the day when he was doing them on Facebook, but I found it almost unwatchable.  Doesn’t help that I don’t like DJ Dougg Pound, I suppose.

I've only been watching for a few months, but as PlanktonSideburns suggested I think he slips in and in out of a character at times. I wouldn't say he ever goes full "asshole presenter" though.

Anyway, it works because the show is at it's best when he is the quasi-straightman getting (often genuinely) annoyed by the incessant drops. A bit like how the Ricky Gervais XFM show is one of the greatest things ever even if you don't like the host (Ricky Gervais) who is talking 80% of the time.

Such as Vic's incredibly dumb MJ drops: https://youtu.be/O1M5-TUJRz0?t=2783

Yeah. Only seen / heard a bit of it to be fair but I feel like he's trying and failing to channel Tom Scharpling's sometimes grumpy persona. Tom is a master at it, and always sounds warm and inviting even when he loses his rag. Tim on the other hand can sound snobby and cruel, which works for the Tim character of On Cinema but not so much the one we're meant to take as closer to the real person. Even when I agree with what he's arguing I can find it hard to be on his side. Maybe I need to hear more.

It may well be coloured by my limited personal experience and a lot of second-hand experience with the man where he's come off as a bit of a cock, so I don't really watch him "out-of-character".  Someone like Limmy can pull off the comedy arsehole act a lot better because he's otherwise quite affable, whereas Tim comes off a bit sneery and/or pompous with his alt-comedy mates in the background to nod in approval.  AchIdunno.

If someone's a fan, is there a specific episode or "bit" you'd recommend?  I have liked some of Tim's work, especially On Cinema, so I'm pretty open to having my mind changed.

The format of the show may not be ideal for recommending highlights, because like an old terrestrial radio show a lot of the (admittedly dumb/random) humour comes in unexpected bursts amidst hours of more mundane talk.

For example, this had me crying with laughter an hour and a half into the show last week, but it may not be as funny when isolated out of context: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2zmlISpfMA

Good morning!

(https://i.imgur.com/gsQuxiF.png)

I'm a recent convert to Office Hours and even joined the Patreon (mainly for the Beatles podcasts, "Please Please Let It Be", which didn't disappoint (PM system exists FYI)). I think Tim is very charismatic and deals with callers with a hard enough hand to be funny, and loves to tease people about their accents, but is never nasty. Even when he had Million Dollar Extreme  trolls calling into him all the way through 2016-2017 and on twitter, he was never rude to them when they called. What's more, he's a very knowledgeable guy. As mentioned, he has a lot of the same singer-songer heroes in common: Randy Newman, The Beatles, Harry Nilsson and so on. He also introduced me to Weyes Blood's Titanic Rising, which has a lot of fans on here. He has also revealed that not only is he aware of The Day Today and Brass Eye but that they were important influences on Awesome Show that he and Eric discussed regularly when they talked about the vibe they were going after. I like listening to the earliest shows (especially because I think they've been deleted off FB since I downloaded them) where it's just him, a skype account and a flimsy phone microphone.



Mark Proksch never fails to release my adrenachromes..

Are we sure it's him? The voice is so similar.. but it was so funny because I believed it was real and they seemed to be genuinely at a loss for words.

According to this comprehensive Atlantic article, published last week, they believe a lot of weird stuff.

I've always been vocally pro-Doug, I think a lot of people don't realize how much of a key role he played in cultivating the T&E aesthetic, Awesome Show would have been very different without his input. Pound House and The 2 Wet Crew stuff seems to get a very mixed response but I think he's got a knack for creating a genuinely unsettling surreal atmosphere.  Plus, his Poundcast was one of the first podcasts that I ever got properly into and it really helped me through a year of working an incredibly tedious job so for that alone I'll always have time for the man.

Post by: Retinend on June 17, 2020, 02:26:35 PM
I was thinking about Doug's contribution to Awesome Show.

The show had loads of bits that seemed to exist merely because they were deliberate challenges for Doug to edit issuing from the duo.

You can imagine Tim or Eric hanging out with him and saying "can you zoom into his nose and have a little man come out? ...that's great, what's he called? Chippy! There's my chippy!" and it all gets woven into the show naturally. "Can you have me spray milk from my nipple into Eric's mouth"? And so on.

Tim often says how they were racing against time to make the show, so were always looking to come up with ideas and execute them as quick as possible. One can imagine that without an editor/musician on their wavelength like Doug, the show would have been a lot less psychedelic. He was like the George Martin to their Lennon/McCartney.

Naturally, Vic is also a distinctive editor. Has he actually collaborated with Tim as an editor before?

live now

edit: this really is worlds colliding - the accents alone - it's freaky atm
Tim compliments Limmys' background decor - it is nice isn't it?
Limmy confirms my memory that it was specifically S2 and beyond that was T&E influenced
Tim doesn't seem to have seen anything of Limmy's Show so he doesn't pursue that
both seem bemused by how much we want them to "get together" - Tim remarks how it feels like a first date
Limmy is a fan of Vic!
...Tim brought up UK/Scottish politics and seems to be regretting it now...
This is a bit of a mismatch personality-wise - Tim is too "LA" for Brian and he doesn't seem to enjoy the raucous atmosphere
doing British/American accents now - thank you Vic for getting us off "hey why are you on twitch?"
that seems to have broken the ice a little
Limmy on statues: "take everything doon" except for the traffic cone head statue in Glasgow
Tim criticises Cleese on statutes and Limmy agrees
Limmy makes a good point about Morrisey and Marr that reminds me of how CaB always said that Merchant was everything and Gervais was nothing re the Office
they are one year apart
and that's it!

I found that likeable enough, but Heidecker didn't seem like he was massively well-versed in Limmy's comedy and his questions were all pretty surface level. I wish Vic Berger and DJ Douggpound had been a bigger part of the conversation as it seemed like they were both at least moderately familiar with Limmy (and vice versa) and I would have been interested to hear the whole group have a more involved, podcast-style talk about comedy. Still, it was fun just to see Tim and Limmy interact - for my money they're two of the most naturally funny performers of their generation and this intersection marks a curious little footnote in comedy history if nothing else.

EDIT: Aye, that was fine, but Limmy did all the work. There was a bit of rapport there, but it was mainly Limmy being funny and Tim laughing. Those twats messing around in the background, though; what is the point of them?

Think it was on at the same time as the second season. Could be wrong on this.

Thought Limmy's appearance was fine, much like any other time they've had guests on really, as in just a bit of a knock about, nothing too in-depth, and so on. Felt a bit anxious in the run-up weirdly, like when you introduce one really good mate to another really good mate, where you hope they get on.

No, I don't think so. I think honestly that it's just a fun side-project for them. There's obviously not really a great deal of effort and preparation that goes into it, and Tim's never going to be Marc Maron say. It's pretty ramshackle. It's three people fucking around for a couple of hours, and if you're on their wavelength or thereabouts then that's great.

Fair enough. I made a mistake in clicking the link and assuming Limmy was on soon, and instead sat through 25 minutes of a bad American radio show with a fake advert, those annoying as fuck "drops" every few seconds, and five minutes of reminiscing about an old meme.

The Limmy bit was fine, just a slightly bland chat with delays where the Americans took a moment to realise what he'd said.

Something tells me you wouldn't like one of the many episodes in which Tim spends 45+ minutes doing his horrible English accent character (basically Del from Wayne's World 2), which he seems unironically proud of.

It was lovely seeing them together. I liked it. Limmy is such a sweetie-pie, effortless social mask juggling. He always comes across really well. Hard to believe that his heart rate was up past 40.

I think it's a fair comment, but I think Greg Turkingtons character is such a strong, stable base, Tim can get away with swinging around that pillar wildly with his trousers down at times. I personally think it works great, maybe it's why it works for me, one of them is such a solid foundation and the other constantly threatens to yank the roots through the concrete.

I can totally see how it would be jarring, like some broad 70s character in a modern naturalistic laughter track free sitcom, but I think that's why it works so well.
I don't think those little character breaks from Tim are self conscious, smug, knowing looks to camera, I think he genuinely can't help it and I find it endearing and it brings me in as a viewer.

He's done some bits for the Oscars specials. Off the top of my head I think he did a couple of Peter Jackson things and the clips montage for when Joe Estevez won his lifetime achievement award.

Vic Berger's fame is entirely down to him making On Cinema fan videos (like this one (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y72vZV53BSw)) and Tim liking them enough to hire him as a editor for the actual show, despite Vic having no professional editing experience.

I'm a little surprised by the reaction of the format of this show, and Pearly has explained it well. To me, it is just an exaggeration of the Nick Kroll character in Parks and Rec. A shitty morning DJ host with some poor, bored guy randomly clicking audio stings at various times. It's not the most demanding or experimental thing Tim has done, and in the Limmy interview he is pretty much being himself, I think. Maybe that's the part that confuses people.

The question was about actual editing collabs so I don't think presumably unsolicited fan videos would count. Also I'm pretty sure he wasn't hired as an editor for the actual show (if you're talking about On Cinema). Like I said he's done some segments for the specials. Further to my previous examples, he did the 40th anniversary of Jaws 2 montage.

Yes you're right, he's never worked as an editor on the actual show. I do recall Tim saying that he basically plucked him from YouTube obscurity to (relative) internet stardom. They did collaborate on the Super Deluxe specials at the Republican and Democrat Conventions for the 2016 elections.

I should have picked my words more carefully. I meant to sat that his On Cinema fan videos were the catalyst for everything else, and what got him noticed by Tim in the first place.

Bergers edits of the Republican debates in the 2016 election were the best thing to come out of that clown show.

Latest episode: Vic's annoying siren got dropped (appropriate, given the Zeitgeist!)

also I'm totally in love with his first guest (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiS0rrUNI-A&t=31m50s), who I hadn't heard of before, standup Megan Koester. She was absolutely hilarious; dominated the whole show and even had Tim trailing after her with her infectious energy. Weirdly, I went to follow her on Twitter and I was already following her. That's how good she is, I guess. Paradoxically, she talked about being depressed and awake only 5 hours a day (clearly only half joking).

During that conversation (from 42:10*)  Tim lays into the Joe Rogan circle a little bit: their seriousness about their "chunks" and "bits", and the challenges of weaving them into the almighty "hour set". With Koester's interjections, it had my crying laughing even before I had my first coffee. I hope she's a regular.

Will dig out the "After Hours" bit he mentions...

Tim on his Office Hours Patreon yesterday:

"Shhhh...
KW is real... but I'm pretending he's a bit on twitter. let's see what KW does next!"

(What he did next was, apparently, block Tim.)

Ibid., about an hour ago:

"...And I've seen some grumbling: Why would you give a creep like that a platform???  / I hear you but I disagree. First, I think there's a big difference between the KW appearance and, oh I dunno, let's say: Joe Rogan having Ben Shapiro on for 2 plus hours, uncontested...  The purpose of having KW on was not to have a fair exchange of ideas... it was to scold him, goof on him and treat him and the movement he follows (trust me, he follows) like the clown show he/it is. HAVE PUPPETS ASK HIM THE TOUGH QUESTIONS...  The other effect it has is: you lovely people pile on and, sure I guess you could say he's getting more attention, but if you look at his replies its filled with goofs and gags and general time wasting. He's getting clogged up with nonsense, folks!  I don't know if that's the kind of attention that could every be considered valuable.  Matt and I were laughing about having a semi regular segment called Qooks Qorner, having these nutballs on and having our puppets talk to them.  I'm just fascinated to get into their brains a bit and figure out what the hell is going on! And I really don't think it's promoting them in any positive way, especially considering the relative size of our show (still a backwater folks, what can ya do??)  We'll see if we can rope another one in...."

So, I guess he's real, if fucking nuts. Which surprises me not one whit. This whole fucking country has lost its collective mind.

An A-list ex-Beatle calls for an A-list special guest on the pod, so Tim and Eric N. invited the great Fred Armisen back to dive into the extensive discography of Paul McCartney. Enjoy the ride!

The Solo Years is a limited series podcast from Tim Heidecker and Eric Notarnicola (Mister America, On Cinema, Nathan For You) exploring the post-Beatles solo albums of Ringo, George, Paul and John. Only available for Office Hours Live patreon subscribers.

I feel like no one cares now, but it seems Tim has been attacked by QAnon influencers.

They are flagging up potentially Pizzagatey things about this sketch: Child Clown Outlet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAU_Ez84l4c

and yesterday he quite earnestly tried to speak directly to the brainwashed QAnon masses, in passing explaining the sketch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uk8Jo0ywXY&t=20m05s

I think this is all perfect for on Cinema - fictional Tim has already been going down the Alex Jones route and if he is brave he could use all this (not to mention his spats with the alt right previously) for his comedy and add yet another intersection with reality to the OCEU.

That's the brother of Abby Martin? Didn't know that. The interview in question: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAfW1Fd-x2A

I seem to remember thinking she was a bit of a useful idiot for Russian's state philosophy of promoting dissent in the western world (after Aleksandr Dugin), but I was impressed that she quit her job at Russia Today over the invasion of the Ukraine: https://www.newsweek.com/abby-martin-becomes-viral-voice-dissent-kremlins-rt-230969

Aside from that entirely, I have a problem with this previously mentioned "QAnon Anonymous" podcast. They have some good interviews and are good at going deep into the accounts of certain individuals (those they called the "pilled")... but the hosts are arseholes. I have hopes that this Media Roots podcast can replace it for my QAnon needs.

At 3:54 he pointedly references a Joe Rogan podcast that just recently came out that I was coincidentally just watching a bit of.  It is indeed a 5 hour, quite self indulgent talk with Rogan's best mate, a stoner/psychonaut standup comedian called Duncan Trussell: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xRz8ra9mdI&t=15160s

Post by: Retinend on September 21, 2020, 09:05:44 AM
Maybe I'm just irritable today, but the guest Jay Weingarten rubbed me up the wrong way with his "skit" about neon signs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39Cv8Rd1IYI&t=1h7m

It's as if he was saying "this isn't hacky material because it is  i R o N i C!" and what's more it felt like he was pandering to Tim by imitating the artfully amateurish style of "presenting" on Awesome Show. I mean, he sort of speaks like someone who shouldn't be broadcasting, but he is broadcasting - and that's the joke! On Awesome Show, this was part of the whole vibe of the show. With Weingarten it seems like a crutch.

See also Ben Levin, whose educational/ music videos on YouTube I seem to have developed a bad habit of hate-watching these days. (https://www.cookdandbombd.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic,29109.msg4300010.html#msg4300010)

In perspective though, both of these guests are just there to fill up the space between more important guests... but actually that's what is beginning to annoy me about the show. Tim is squeezing out the weird fans (like me!) in favour of his weird twitterati friends and celebrity friends he just happens to like hanging out with. The name "Office Hours" is fast becoming an anachronism, even after a 4 short years. Obviously it originally referred to the fact that so many young fans wanted to consult him about comedy, music or life in general.

They're parodying morning zoo shows on terrestrial radio, and the call signs for terrestrial radio stations in the U.S. are designated either W--- or K---. Technically if this was broadcasting out of Los Angeles the station would be KOHL, but they seem to be going for more of a mid-Atlantic milieu.

Enjoying this from a, as previously mentioned, total Tim (& Eric) ignoramus perspective.

I just feel heartened by the triad's political perspectives, as much as their comedy ones. I've been following Vic's twitter feed and there's some serious drama on there. It's nice to see that these guys actually stand by their convictions and challenge people, unlike ... well basically Herring and Buxton... this is why I was (possibly a bit overly) complaining about Adam Buxton's kinda centrist leanings on his podcast: I just don't want to hear that limp stuff anymore. I want to hear people actually put their money where their mouth is and I feel OHL is exactly that kind of thing.

They can be political at times and I love when they get people on who argue with Tim, it's good that he can have a genuine debate with people, but it can also very quickly descend into piss taking and silliness, which is also great.

I have a lot of time for OHL and it's genuinely very comforting when I feel that familiar chasm of utter despair that's all around us now!

Stand-up part was great. You could tell Tim had really been working on his chunks! Some amazing old school crowd work, don't really see that level of craft much anymore these days.

Didn't need the songs at the end, in my opinion.

the last song seemed to stop suddenly like a really big point had been made, but I failed to get it.
About nuclear war and how it just takes one maniac thought it was a bit limp, personally, but loved everything else. It's great seeing a set that's well thought out and has a few layers at play, without feeling like it's trying too hard. Great stuff!

Has anyone watched Vic's latest Trump video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZKkUyrklpc)? Work of art, feels like the culmination of everything he's been doing in that department the last 4 years.

For those who haven't checked the new CC threads recently, I made a 100 minute film dealing with Tim's battles with the alt right on Office Hours in 2016 (it's sort of an Office Hours "origins story" in that regard, but also a love letter to On Cinema).

Fun election coverage - I almost like that it wasn't forced to be a celebration or a commiseration-fest.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FhZB_y6lB4

at 3:42:00 a very good cover version of one of Tim's 2017 anti-Trump songs
at hour 3:17:40-ish, there are some insightful thoughts on "anti liberal" Trumpism (Sargon of Akkad type people) from David Wiegel (seen his face before - what is his deal exactly?)
from 2:05:00, just a small moment, but Tim seems kind of bummed out that he's not recently had "the muse" for his political engagement as in 2016/17 (see my film, "I AM A CUCK", for more details)

Are there any specific episodes of Office Hours that would be a good place to start?

I've only listened to two or three full episodes (Weyes Blood, Limmy and maybe another one) and caught a few highlight clips but not much more. I was intrigued to see Office Hours being compared to The Best Show on the Scharpling & Wurster thread.

I made a post comparing the two in the Best Show thread, and as I said there, I dipped in and out of Office Hours when it first started, and certain things about it grated on me, but recently I started watching them again, starting with episodes from the end of 2019 and watching each episode in order from there, and I've got hooked on it.

The 8 hour episode might be a good place to start:

Some really silly moments and a good range of guests.

Trying to think of a specific episode. The show definitely entered a new and better era right around the start of the pandemic (with new producer Matt and higher production values/a proper studio), so really any show since about March is going to be good. Watching along live with the comment stream also adds to the experience.

Off the top of my head, two classic episodes are:

Office Hours Halloween Special (October 29) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ek4kUt_97X8)

Vic Berger's Berthday Bash (August 6) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqKKMwiPO7I)

Hey, noticed the thread for this is locked, so just wanted to throw my initial post-viewing thoughts in here (sorry for the thread tangent).

Finally watched this! A very enjoyable, thrilling ride through the madness of that whole debacle. Sam Hyde came across like a genuine villain, (although I think we got to see some sense of his humanity towards the end). Mostly this felt like a great warning to how radicalising the internet can be and how social media can be like crack for ideologies and tribalism and it gave me much appreciated context for that dramatic confrontation between Sam and Tim.

The whole thing was put together well, given that I presume there was zero budget and you were relying only on clips and audio you could grab online.

To me, Sam's accusation that Tim got him cancelled does hold some water, to the extent that Tim's retweet and exposing of the extreme elements on social media would have scared a lot of people (perhaps in places of influence in the media world) and made them run a mile from the likes of Sam Hyde and co, but if I'd blame anyone for the whole mess, it would be Adult Swim for giving that guy a show. Adult Swim's attempt to be edgy and relevant landed them in the situation where they were platforming a genuinely awful guy. Hopefully lessons were learnt, but do we think there's any chance of, seemingly unhinged Sam Hyde learning anything from the experience?

I have a slither of hope that he'll grow out of this shit, as a lot of his nastiness seems to be about self-flagellation in some senses: A need to feel rage and disgust from other people in order to feel whole or something.
Odd guy. I hope he gets the help he needs.
And then stops saying really fucked up things about minorities and stuff.
And then fucks off and takes all his alt-right fuck heads with him.

Since the dedicated thread is locked, I hope no one minds me deepening the tangent here.

His humanity is definitely there to be seen. Sadly though, the truth is that he has doubled down on his alt right beliefs many many times since then and his recent work (google "Sam Hyde Frank Hassle" or YT search "Sam Hyde New Pill" if you want) has been absolutely baffling: hatred of liberals has been its only consistent thread.

Yeah in the end Tim really was the catalyst for the show's demise: Tim trolled the trolls and exposed them. Well, they exposed themselves by willing to be exposed: they felt invincible.

Some other viewers have expressed similarly christian sentiments towards Hyde after seeing his state by the end of the film. I agree in principle, but I want to stress that he has shown no attempts to make redresses so far. I gave a couple of examples of his bad behaviour in the closed thread ... but which I won't repeat here again lest I be accused of "campaigning to get him shut down" myself (the fans of MDE have been surprisingly welcoming of the film so far, but not all MDE fans are nice people).

Looks like shortly after Vish Khanna's unprompted appearance on Office Hours, Doug and Vic showed up on an episode of Kreative Kontrol (various links: https://twitter.com/VishKreative/status/1338882401506758656 (https://twitter.com/VishKreative/status/1338882401506758656))

This was fascinating, I thought. Aside from threading the two lads' creative histories with Tim "I Have So Many Great Ideas" Heidecker, it goes in deep on Drops, their genesis and the process behind them, the recent Drop Concert, and its suggested parallels to noise music and sound collage art. Apparently the term 'drop' was coined by Neal Brennan! That's all I'll say though. Check it out.

Yes! Overall the best ones are those that conjure a particular mood or message, rather than just being lolrandom. (though those can still be hilarious.) Like in the Kreative Kontrol episode, they go into detail about the soap opera-like music sting that's played whenever Tim 'gets on his high horse' or recounts some insignificant drama or beef. It's absolute gold.

I suppose it's the human need to try to find some good in people / that struggle with accepting that someone can be so devoid of empathy or humanity, but I guess I just have to accept that Sam Hyde really is an utter piece of shit then.

bit "lol random" but does anyone else find the "ABSO-LUTELY" sting at the end of Nathan For You / Office Hours etc... to be quite intimidating and unsettling? Like the guy saying it is just about to smash someone's face in? It just conjures up this whole story in my mind, that the guy has been on some mad coke / alcohol binge and has trashed his own house and has now realised that someone is filming the mess to mock him and he's just about to snap.

I don’t find him funny and I think he’s also a bit of a dickhead, to be clear and he also drowns out the much funnier and superior dropper that is Doug with his inaneness - however the show seems to have turned into being about the drops with a little bit of content thrown in - I used to prefer it way more with the intimacy of just tim and Doug

I don't think Vic was brought in for his ability to amuse on a podcast. I'd like to know what you see in his behaviour to call him a dickhead though. He comes across as a sweet guy, and quite nervous but can you blame him?

There was a good sweet spot for me between Vic joining and Matt fully taking over production. The now established format has weakened the show for me, I really loved the chaos.

I don't see it myself, but never mind.

He should definitely be criticised for his dreadful harmony singing though, and those pork pie fucking hats.

I didn't enjoy the first Hamburger episode as much as I expected to, but that's probably my fault for getting so hyped up about it. There were some interesting factums and recollections from Neil and the Melvins but the whole thing was quite subdued, which should be expected I suppose.

I enjoyed the previous Neil Hamburger episode, but the latest one was a tough watch with Megan Koester as the guest. Trying far too hard to be edgy just put a dampener on the show for me. Anyway, looks like Jon Glaser should be doing next week's show which will be one to look forward to.

If you like that, you should seek out his "Poolside Chat" show from a decade-plus ago (I'd provide links but YouTube is blocked at work for me) - leaning even harder (and more hilariously) into his persona, except, most amusingly, for the first episode, with last week's OHL guest King Buzzo, where it was mostly "off the air" for reasons too tedious to recount, so he reverted to Turkington for most of it; a rather bizarre sight indeed. (And, of course, you should check out all you can of his standup and his music videos - it's a treasure trove.)
