R.I.P. Cort and Fatboy 2003-2012

cortandfatboy is dead – 12/07/2012

by admin on November 5, 2012

WHAT: cortandfatboy is dead: The Final Episode
WHEN: Friday, December 7th. Doors at 8, Show at 9
WHERE: McMenamin’s Bagdad Theater, 3702 SE Hawthorne Blvd
HOW MUCH: $6. Must be 21 or Older to attend. Tickets available here.

They say all good things must end. Well, so do the mediocre things. Pretty much everything ends, really. It’s kind of a dumb saying if you think about it.

The time has come for Cort Webber and Bobby Roberts to turn out the lights on the almost decade-long run of their comedy/pop-culture talk show. And so we begin the countdown to their final episode, cortandfatboy is dead, recorded live on-stage at the Bagdad Theater, home to seven years worth of Midnight Movie screenings, featuring titles such as The Empire Strikes Back, The Iron Giant,  ALIENS, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Fight Club, The Muppet Movie, Enter the Dragon, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and the annual homegrown celebration of all things Dude, Cinco De Lebowski.

cortandfatboy is dead will feature regular guests Ryan Fleming of DigitalTrends.com; filmmaker/writer David Walker (who will be screening his latest short, The Day They Ran Out of Bullets); Live Wire Radio host Courtenay Hameister; gossip columnist Byron Beck; creator of The Legend of Bold Riley Leia Weathington; stand-up comedian Jim Willig, an original presentation from The Sabertooth Vampire creator and Oregonian film critic Mike Russell; as well as surprises and special guests from the show’s eight-year long existence.

Doors will open at 8pm, and at 9pm, the audience will witness the beginning of the end of Portland’s only pop-culture podcast hosted by a squinty, stabby madman, and an excitable, Kangol-capped Hobbit thing. Admission is $6, Only patrons 21 and over may attend. Tickets are available at this link.

 

Poster art by The!Thomas!Wilson. Prints of this, and previous films in the 2012 Midnight Movie series will be available for purchase in the lobby of the Bagdad. For more, visit http://thethomaswilson.com

But I can’t wait to see what you guys do next. I hope you guys (and the guests) are still around in the podcast world to listen to.

I can’t help but have a guilty spark when I read such news. If I had tweeted or FB out the links more, or did that one extra bit that would have made the difference to keep things going. Not knowing the reasons, I can only say it is the sadness making that little ping in my head happen. I am sorry to see such things as this go away, but at the same time I am glad to have lived and been a part of such things and seen such days as those with Stabby and Hobbitman making us feel good about the miasma.

You will be sadly missed in my queue.

Bobby November 5, 2012 at 10:34 am

The show is still going to be doing it’s five-day-a-week thing up until the 7th, so we’re not dead YET. But we will be. You get to come to the wake! And if we owe you money – we can’t hide from you!

Reply

Mandeh November 5, 2012 at 10:41 am

I don’t get to come to the wake! Boo! No closure for me! I’ll sit alone in my room and wave a tear-stained hanky as I play the closing credits to every awful eighties sitcom on repeat.

This is a shame. A right proper dang shame. Why did you guys decide to pull the plug? Too much of a time suck? Tired of making the trek up Sandy every Monday – Friday? The popcorn smell at the Roseway get to be too much?

I guess this means no more movies at the Bagdad + commentaries too. Poop.

You both will be very missed in our community. I can honestly say that everyday I got to see you both in the studio was an absolute pleasure and working with you on various podcasts always brightened my week. I’m happy that you are moving on to better things and know you will always maintain your nerdy Portland charm no matter what you do move on to. Love you both.

I hope that whatever you guys are doing with yourselves next works out brilliantly for you. I think you guys are hilarious and talented. And I hope I still get to hear you guys occasionally on my internet radio thingys.

Good luck!

So much I have enjoyed. Wishing you all the best and a heartfelt thanks!

It’s the least I could do for the show that, for “worse”, shaped me as a person.

I’m sad but grateful for the years of entertainment you provided. I have to thank you for introducing me to the world of podcasts and the various people I have followed from KUFO. Without you I never would have discovered Mike Russell, Aaron Duran, David Walker, Dawn Taylor, Emerson, the Funemployment crew, Byron, and many others.

Thank you both for being a constant source of laughs when I needed them the most.

I wish everyone involved in the show the very best. Byron, Leia, Courtenay, Big Jim, Mike, David, Ryan… Tell them all that I love them. But not in a needy creepy way. Act cool about it.

I am truly heart broken, you guys may say that you are only mediocre but truthfully in the two years that I found this show it has meant so much to me. You guys have rekindled my love for the nerd culture that I have missed in a while. Heck I really wanted to get out there to see you guys at least for a midnight movie. I may not be able to do that anymore but truthfully I’m just glad I got be here for the two years I got. You guys are some of the best podcasters out there and I’ll miss this show.

Ryan November 5, 2012 at 12:33 pm

Awfully torn up over something I’ve been getting for free for years. Fellows, I sure as hell hope this doesn’t mean that you’re withdrawing from the culture you’ve fostered in Portland over the years and especially post-KUFO. You’ve never been great at taking credit for anything, but you should know that you’ve single-handedly given my late 20′s, early 30′s the license to be a nerd, to enjoy a bit of nostalgia, and responsibly pass on the things I loved as a kid to my own children. I am going to miss the show terribly, but I know you will as well, and I have to believe this wasn’t a decision made lightly. Thank you for so many years, especially the ones at Error.FM, Cascadia.FM, and independently. It was more than any of your fans and friends could have hoped for or asked of you, and you gave it with class and good humor.

Cheers, gentlemen,. And thanks.

FUCKING FINALLY.

But no, this is sad. I remember the contest that brought you two guys together. The first midnight movie. Rockfests and shows at the Roseland. Daily walks to that deli for lunch. And the time when I walked in on you two exploring each other’s mouths with your tongues. “I found a cavity,” said Cort. “So did I,” said Fatboy, meaning something else entirely.

Bless you, gentlemen. <3

Well, shit.

I was a faithful listener on terrestrial radio because it was a revelation to have a talk segment that spoke to my people (the geeks) and didn’t treat lady folk like a punchline. It’s been a great run and I’ve listened daily.

I appreciate all the free, quality podcastery you put out for pretty much no compensation, and I’m going to miss you guys.

I’ll keep listening until the day you turn out the lights.

Thanks for the show!

I have been a faithful listener since the KUFO days and the Stump the Movie Douche days. Oh, let us not forget Fatboy’s Dirty Laundry. You have helped me through a lot of rough times and a lot of boring times in the office. I really wish it wasn’t ending, I just hope what ever new projects you two have going for you pop up quickly to keep me selfishly entertained. I just have to say you guys have been really inspiring. I will certainly be there for the last… if I can get tickets… where can we preorder tickets?

It’s easy to be a tad selfishly upset when the world removes one of your favorite ear pleasures. Yet honestly I’m more happy for you two dudes because such a decision at this time means IT’S time, and greener pastures surely await. To clarify-at this time means to me, of the buttload of podcasts I listen to–local, national, regardless of genre–yours is still one of the very, very few I look forward to hearing the most, especially for a daily.

Well. Shit. There goes the greatest time waster of my past 5 years. I will say you guys are truly going to be missed especially on my phone, I was sorta off and on up until about 5 months ago, I do hope you both have no regrets.
(Because I fuckin’ do, I have been waiting till I was finally of the goddamn age limit to go see one of your midnight movies, it’s actually been sorta a goal, now here I am still 4 years off and it’s over. fuck me.)
I wish everyone well once it has ended and I will still hope to listen in once in awhile when I can catch you guys if you still do guest spots on other podcasts.

Reply

Sam November 5, 2012 at 2:46 pm

Actually come to think of it, you guys were a huge part of my childhood in general. I remember when I had a radio I could use being able to listen in on you guys and the music that you had been banging against my eardrums. some I’m thankful for, some I’ve straight up repressed, but all a worthy experience.

I remember finding out you both got fired too, god that was a weird day for me, I listened to the message you left on the site that I had literally just discovered and realizing you guys could still find a laugh in that. coming back off and on (when I remembered) through the last Idon’tfuckinknowhowlong years. and no matter what still finding you guys hilarious and still awesome although you refused to tag yourselves as such.

the show brought my insight, other opinions, laughs, intrigue, shit it even made my stomach hurt once or twice.
I’m sure you guys could give a nanofuck but all I have to say is, you really will be missed, I wish you guys good luck, and I really do hope you don’t regret anything even if it sucked.

Remember that time Fatboy farted into his microphone, and everyone laughed? Then Fatboy touched it with his lips, and yelled “ew!”? Then everyone laughed again, and Fatboy said “I just kissed my own ass”?

That was funny.

I would like to thank you gentlemen for the years of entertainment, many laughs, and many moments. I’m going to leave that as ‘moments’, because I feel that is broad enough.

You made me look smarter in movie gossip conversations and you influenced my movie going dollar which is massively important to my incredibly cheap ass.

I sang your praises to friends and counterparts here in Southern Cali, but I have to be honest, you were my secret pipeline into the nerdy and cool shit coming out of PDX. Good luck to you both in whatever is next, and please be proud of the content you put out dispite all the hurdles you’ve had over the last few years.

I live in Los Angeles, so I’ve never been able to go to a Midnight Movie or Geek Trivia. But it never stopped me from doing that with my friends down here and having as much fun as you guys seem to have doing it. And I won’t stop just because there’s a mediocre corpse of show on the floor, stinking up the place. It’ll just give me reasoning to move on and create new things from what I’ve learned. Thanks for the all the good times you didn’t really mean to have with a random, creepy stranger living a few hundred miles south of you. Now let’s have some fun in this last month!!

I became a fan of Cortandfatboy after the downfall of the radio show, which as a non-Portland resident, I was not aware of. The coverage of its downfall, as heard on pdx.fm, lead me to you. It did not take too long to “get”, but as random as the shows can get, there’s a general sense of flow that I like, or maybe “a general sense of order” so that things never get too loose. However, I enjoy it when it feels like the shows are going out of control.

I became a fan because of the humor, and the nerdiness involved in everything pop culture. References fly everywhere, and at times it comes off as cafeteria conversation, a bullshit session in a garage, and coming out of a movie and feeling a need to shoot the shit with someone. After awhile I did get preferences for specific days, but I would listen nonetheless.

It’s hard to say what I’m most thankful for when it comes to this show, because like a comic book universe, one is able to know about one, two, or five people, and that leads to exploring what each of them do. Everyone shares a specific passion towards something, and while it may not be something I may be specifically into, it’s that passion that I have appreciated, and that is what has kept me a listener of the podcast. Plus, there have been a number of shows where it will touch on a discussion and it will either initiate interest or perhaps unearth one I may have had but long forgotten.

If there’s one show that stands out for me the post, it’s one where Jim Willig brought in Don Frost, and this was in the last year or so. I was in my car, and I couldn’t stop laughing, which may have motivated a few people outside to think ‘what the hell is wrong with that guy?” and that lead me to listening to their “Big & Loud Show” on a regular basis.

I’ll cut myself off here before I write another essay but… since I’m that music numb nut, I’ll compare your show to being like an audio CDnow or Discogs, in that when you go in looking for something specific, you also go in knowing that it may lead to so much more: good, bad, unexpected, and WTF?!? You (as in “I”) want that “more”, and for three years, it has always been there for me. It will become “no more” in a month but… I have enjoyed the hard work and effort that has gone into every show, and like everyone else who has commented so far, I thank you.

Been a listener since the Cort and Boomer days. I was a former caller from time to time. The Boys were there during my darkest times giving me hope. Now that I have so much happening in my life, it is sad they are going. I still am very grateful for the things the introduced to me. Thanks to them I have been becoming a Fixture in the PDX geek Community. Thanks for all the Fish, Guys.

I will say that since I take care of a medical cannabis farm and have nothing but time with a pair of scissors in my hands and endless hours of repetitive motion, the idea of your podcast going away could be an occupational hazard for me. (I don’t smoke weed, I raise it and help people the same way y’all helped me.) I have been deep in my cups this eve thanks to the announcement. Time to open another Arrogant Bastard ale.

I started listening to you guys back when you got stuck with the late shift at KUFO. You’ve given me more laughs than I could possibly count, and I’ll be sad to see you go.

Stumbled onto your podcast 4 years ago and have really enjoyed it as my primary source of geek fix.

Wish you chaps well in your future undertakings, and thanks for such an interesting run. You guys redefined ‘mediocrity’!

I will miss you guys so much, started listening when I was 12 and I’m now 17. You guys have brought many hours of joy and entertainment to my life and for that I would sincerely like to thank you. I will of course still listen to ham fisted radio for my dose of fatboy every week.

I wish you mediocrity legends the best of luck in your future pursuits, and will continue to support you and the amazingly talented of this show for the rest of my days. So wish I could come, but I unfortunately moved from Portland to Stuttgart, Germany about a year ago. Thank you for filling my earbutts with mediocrity for five years!

So this is what it feels like to be stabbed by the Capn’s steely blade. The only news that could make this day worse is if Romney the Robot wins the election!

I want to thank you both for all the great laughs, informative conversations, creative ideas over all the years. I’m sure you have better things on the way and you both deserve them more than can be expressed.

I immediately bought tickets to the live/death show and I am grateful to be able to witness the final closing curtain on one of the greatest podcasts of all time!

Take care and hopefully we will hear you both soon in a new format! (maybe just Cort and Bobby???)

Found you guys through a Cracked article years ago and have listened every day. Always awesome.

Good luck guys

So, after you post the live show, and all the kids have gone to bed, all of the lights quickly dimming upon cold mic’s, Cap’n and yourself should come in for one last thing. To record only the following. “Ahhh hell yeah. Hello people of Earth. Today is Monday and in two two seconds, your lives will be a whole lot emptier. Welcome to that whole thing. Byeee”

Thank you both, and all your guests, for providing entertainment, which spans the entire board for several, otherwise, lost individuals who, under your beacon, that’s beacon, not bacon, pulled together and formed a half assed family of mediocrity. I know I’m not alone, (because I read most of the comments above) when I say, again, Thanks guys.

(Cue the montage of smiley faces and good times set to an equally sentimental piano piece, showcasing all the good times and other good times we’ve ever had, leading up to the final frame, where we al…….meh, fuck it. Take care guys)

So sad! I was planning to visit Portland again in April, and thinking that my trip was going to be luckily timed so that I could go to the midnight movie, but now that hope is crushed. There’s no way I can make it to the December 7th show, dammit. Well, the podcast will be sorely missed, but you’ve earned a rest. If you do decide to do something downloadable in the future, how can we make sure we’ll be notified?

Wow, okay. It seems like these things always happen when I’m offline.. you got fired and I was offline for like 4 days and came back and was like, “..so that happened, huh.”

Your show has been an integral part of my routines, the perfect mix of comical, nerdy, dirty, political and pop culture for the past 5 years. I don’t know what daily slog and chores will be like without your show.. It’ll take some getting used to, for sure.

Anyway, thank you. Now off to dl & listen to all shows i missed..

Over the years I sucked down every CNFB podcast available. Until a couple months back, I lived in non Oregon lands. I’ll feel fortunate to experience the final show. It’s odd to understand how profoundly impacting the ride has been. Nothing else to say that hasn’t been said. Thanks guys.

Bobby December 1, 2012 at 12:33 pm

The site will stay up, yeah. Won’t really be a need for archives because the site will still stay up.

That said, we’ve mentioned it on the show, but we’d really rather listeners went out and found some new podcasts (many of which we’ve featured on this very show) rather than just relisten to our old stuff. That’s flattering, and we love that people love the show so much they want to go back for seconds on our bullshittery :)

But we want people to give new shows a chance the way people gave us a chance, and there are a lot of people who deserve those ears.

Kevin December 4, 2012 at 10:59 am

I can certainly appreciate that, and I’ll give them a try, but I’m definitely with Steve on this one. I’ve been listening to you and Cort literally since day one; I actually started listening when it was still Cort and Boomer. I listened to your guys’ shows whenever I could, and even taped it on cassettes when I couldn’t catch it all (I think I still have some of them laying around) ALL the time, through all the changes in the scheduling, from days to evenings to nights and back again. You guys kept me listening through to a lot of other KUFO DJs, (I think Tim is still my favourite, though I remember another DJ that had some listener do something stupid like send a kitten over the Columbia in a bag with balloons…the stunt was stupid but the DJ he called to tell about it was funny), and even after KUFO stupidly booted you guys off, I was gladly listening to you all here.

I’m probably rambling, but my point is just that the Cort and Fatboy show was and is amazing, and while we’ll go on to new things, if it’s possible for us to save a slice of what we loved listening to so much, I know I at least am damn sure gonna try. Who knows? A few weeks, or months, or even years from now, if (or really WHEN) I get the itch to hear you guys talk movies or do have you guys do a movie commentary over a movie me and my friends are watching, I want to be able to do that. You guys are an awesome bit of Portland and geek history, and that NEEDS to be preserved.
