This is the first episode of my new show "Jay TheCallinShow!" Yeah, man! Basically, I had trouble replying to questions and things people say to me online on 12seconds.tv, (12 seconds just isn't enough time sometimes, man!) so I figured why not like do a longer show where I take my time with stuff? Yeah, so that's what I did. This is the first one, though, and we're still working stuff out. So take a look and see what you think, man. We'll have more kinks ironed out like next time. Yeah.

So, watch and find out what @CarlaLynneHall, @KayThePal, @thesolster, @12nick, on Twitter and @Furankisan and @StarWarsDork on 12seconds.tv had to say to me, I'm Jay ThePal!! YEAH!

Don't like the YouTube? It's cool, man! You can grab this 45MB mp4 of Jay TheCallinShow Episode 1 so you can watch it on your podcast player that you like or whatever. Lisa from OnLisaReinsRadar.com hosts almost like ALL of the mp4s for me so like she rules, yeah! Anyway, so watch the video, man!!

@JayThePal & @KayThePal Guest Star on the Hucklebug Podcastathon 2009 & HELP FIGHT CANCER!! YEAHHH!!

This was way cool because we got to support one of our favorite podcasts--The HUCKLEBUG--AND fight cancer!! YEAH!

You can listen to the Hucklebug at http://hucklebug.com any time, but like this weekend was a special deal though since Bet & Stennie, the hosts of the Hucklebug podcast, were doing a podcastathon as like part of Blogathon 2009 to help raise money in the fight against cancer. This meant that like they were podcasting for twenty-four hours straight, man! They started at 9am eastern time on July 25 and didn't stop until 9am July 26, man!! So, to help out, Kay and I went on and helped them fill an episode. This is like behind the scenes footage of us on the show. So, you can see us doing a sort of chat before and then us talking during. Cool stuff! Plus you can get a taste of what the Hucklebug podcast is really like.

Go listen to episode 15 (the one we were on) here: http://is.gd/1S5P7 (at http://hucklebug.com)

You should check out their show since some of it got cut from this video, but this video has stuff that isn't on their podcast, either, so do both, man! YEAH!

OH YEAH and if you can, be sure and pledge some money to help FIGHT CANCER while you're visiting http://hucklebug.com! Which is what it's all about, man. YEAH!

Don't wanna watch the YouTube version? Here's like a totally cool 92MB mp4, man!! YEAH!! It's hosted by Lisa at OnLisaReinsRadar.com!! THANKS, LISA!!



Got a sec, man? Call (347) 994-YEAH (9324), ask me a question, say hi or whatever, man, and I'll play your message on the next Jay TheCallinShow!! First episode will be posted tonight (7/29) around 8pmish Eastern! YEAH!
