Remember that Mr. Show Bit?
Brian started out the show by doing a voice that reminded him of a character from the Law School sketch from Mr. Show. Interestingly enough, the professor in the sketch is the same dude that plays Chuck McGill in Better Call Saul and Bob Odenkirk (dude who plays Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman) is one of the students. Crazy!
Thanks Brian for unearthing this amazing coincidence! HOORAY BRIAN!
Man, Steven Cogswell is Great
Every so often a Chatrealmer named Steven Cogswell will put together a custom musical accompaniment for a bit that Justin and Brian riffed. If you've followed the show for a while, you've SURELY heard some of his songs. This week, he released "Separate Bathtub Heavens" and "Champagne".
The Patreon is at $1,526. If you want to become a patron, head on over to Patreon.com/NightAttack.
Justin and Bonnie agree that they need to make a new Patreon video. Brian says "s'great". Justin remarked that they look like a "direct farm-to-market saleswoman and the Brazilian immigrant".
Be on the lookout for more "weekly" "comedy" "mixtapes".

Hey, We Got Authors, Right? Let's Write Something
These author dudes, are legitimate award nominees, so let's write a dumb story with them on the show. Our protagonists, Gargle and Ken, work in a west Texas Taco Bell. They're two college boys that dream of working in the Taco Bell lab cooking up new delicious creations. In their spare time they've come up with and amazing new item, but they've run out of ground beef. On the radio, they hear news of a murderer on the loose in town. A while later, a mysterious man enters the Taco Bell matching the criminal's description. Gargle and Ken spill some water and push him into it making it look like the guy slipped and fell. The dude bleeds out and the two bros high five. That's when the news announces that the murderer has been apprehended. They just killed some random dude. They make the guy into a secret sauce and win the contest to become Taco Bell scientists thanks to their "Murderito".
Ok, time for the sequel
The guys are livin' large, they have their own Murderito Taco Bell spin-off chain of restaurants. Everything's great, but they're running out of murder meat. One day, in walks the man they thought they had murdered. Someone figured out how to clone the man so they murder him again to make more Murderitos. It's like the Prestige.
