BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD's "Complete Collection" Isn't Complete, But It's Close (Review)



  1. CSEM says:

    Really? You’re want us all be to be sensitive to your wheat toast divorce and then have the audacity to broadcast a podcast where you make fun of the Holocaust?

    Get an education past the sixth grade or shut the fuck up.

  2. Brooke says:

    You speak as if they are two separate drugs, but Ayahuasca=DMT. DMT is the psychedelic ingredient. Most likely DMT may be referring to the crystal form (smokable), but they are both cultivated from the same plants. Only when smoking, the MAOI ingredient is not needed.
    Anyway, this was surprisingly one of my favorite episodes. Scott is totally the lucky one.

  3. Jeff says:

    Loved this ep – did a desktop background ‘shop of Pete in a Bennigan’s vest on Kulap’s moose.




  4. Sarah says:

    I love, love, love this *FREE* podcast, but like Roman & Germ, I get all twitchy when Pete’s obviously curious mind jumps to new age-y stuff, totally ignoring mind-blowing ideas that are knowable or known. I’m a psych professor, so debunking the “10% of your brain” myth, left/right-brained-ness, and Freudian crappola are sisyphean challenges for me. I think some people are afraid that understanding more about how things work will make the world less magical, but in my experience, it’s the opposite, with the added bonus of sounding smart at dinner parties. 🙂 It sucks that so many scientists aren’t good at communicating about their work, but there are some great exceptions, like David Eagleman’s book:
    Folks who are interested in sleeping / dreaming / meditating might like journalist Jeff “The Head Trip”

  5. Kate says:

    I just wanted to say thanks to Kulap for talking about this stuff. AND for being hilarious while doing so. So helpful and brilliant. Keep up the deep shit, Pete.

  6. Pierre says:

    It kinda looks like a pregnant witch riding a nuke.

    Wheenshield wheepers. *licks clock*

  7. alex says:

    holy shit china DOES look like a witch on a broom. mind = blown,

  8. Jake-Of-The-Easley-Variety says:

    I have astral traveled once…It was in my sleep, and I met a dead person, woke up wrote down what they told me, googled it, and Wah-Lah, It was a real human that killed themself…It truly made it weird…

  9. Pete Holmes says:

    I will try and stop the rage shower thing! I have to HEAAALLLL!!!

    Also, Matt, I DID recently see Waking Life and loved it! Thank you tho. Need to watch it again, actually…

    And Germ, yeah, I see your point (really, I do!) but also love the weird meandering mystical stuff, too!

  10. Germ says:

    There’s an endless amount of real science that the average person hasn’t learned about, why leapfrog all of that for mystical, unsupported bullshit?

  11. WeirdoMatt says:

    Pete , forgive me if I missed an episode where you talked about it but have you ever seen Waking Life? As someone else who is fascinated with dreams, its an awesome dream movie that is very unique.

  12. Kass says:

    Giggles: soo many giggles!

    Long showers as tools of rage? That might be the saddest life habit I’ve ever heard. PETE, HEAL THYSELF!

  13. Geoff says:

    I can`t believe this is free.

  14. Only eleven minutes in and already in a fit of laughter!

  15. Roman says:

    First, loved the episode as always.

    Arg, I hate to be such a debbie downer, but whenever someone says we only use 10% of our brain I laugh. We use all of it, there isn’t some untapped resource in all of us that just needs to be tapped.

    When in doubt, just snopes it.

    Again sorry for being such a debbie.

  16. Kevin says:


  17. scotty says:

    i am disturbing the co-inhabitants of this cubicle farm with raucous booming laughter. It’s Friday…screw it. Glowstick status: cracked.

  18. Mark says:

    Okay, wow, that was super fascinating and hilarious. Awesome awesome ep.

  19. Mark says:

    I do believe this is the first time I’ve heard someone ask Fuck/Marry/Kill about Baby Hitler.

  20. Jake says:

    This should be good!

    Get her lesser half Hot Saucerman on here too. I’d love to get into his head and past and deep dark secrets…
