It’s the summer. The Olympics are over. We’re bored as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!

Welcome to The [BLANK] Jones …

On today’s Hollywood show, The Basketball Jones brainstorm movie ideas to pitch to industry folk at the Toronto International Film Festival. Can an American producer save the British monarchy? What would happen if someone died on Survivor? Does a movie need a climax? Would people pay to watch dogs fall in love? All that, plus basketball-Goonies, Subway sandwiches, sinister scalpers, and more hot ladies named Kate.

Summer’s almost over, you guys. It’s time for us all to buy our Trapper Keepers and Lisa Frank folders and start getting ready to go back to school. I heard Miss Peterson is pretty tough, but supposedly fun. Fifth grade is going to be AWESOME.

But before we can get started with long division and memorizing the states in order, we need some chill time. Ergo, things are going to be slow around these parts until Tuesday. You’ll get a brand spanking new episode of The [BLANK] Jones later today and maybe something special tomorrow, but not a ton of stuff. It’s the middle of August though — you won’t be missing much.

Tuesday brings the return of regular posting and so many laughs. Until then, keep it cool and don’t tell Kerin I told you I think she’s cute.

It’s the summer. The Olympics are over. We’re bored as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!

On today’s festive show, The Basketball Jones break down birthdays. Are they worth celebrating? Where does a Facebook wall post rank on the birthday wishes hierarchy? What’s it like for a waiter to have to sing “Happy Birthday” to annoying patrons? All that, plus, rabid dogs, Aussie Rules Football, “Murphapalooza,” and some wise words from sad Jerry Seinfeld. Embrace the cake, people.

Welcome to The [BLANK] Jones …

On today’s insane show, The Basketball Jones are suddenly unemployed and must come up with small business ideas to keep the crew together. Will people pay Skeets to play old video games in karaoke-like rooms? Can Trey entertain kids while dressed in purple? Will Tas make money by standing on the street and staring at window fronts? Can JD cook French seafood? All that, plus bad accents, Chinese restaurants, narrow milk bottles, diapers, and three hot ladies named Kate.

It’s October. There’s still an NBA lockout. We’re bored as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!

Welcome to The [BLANK] Jones …

On today’s show, we go all in on Halloween. Are you ever too old to dress up? What’s the shittiest candy to get while trick-or-treating? And how does one perfectly execute a “Dirty Sanchez” costume? All that, plus sweaty candy corn, Devil’s Night, and razorblades. Oh, and don’t put your finger in a pay phone change hole. Trust me.

The [BLANK] Jones: Mailbag

It’s October. There’s still an NBA lockout. We’re bored as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!

Welcome to The [BLANK] Jones …

On today’s show, we empty the metaphorical mailbag. What’s the best way to meet friends in a new town? Is there a polite way to tell shitty basketball players that they suck? Is it worth putting in the effort for a long-distance relationship? And if you had to be arrested for something, what would it be? All that, plus cybersex, crushin’ it, perfect Sundays, and a whole lot of yelling. (Yes, we hate each other.) Enjoy the show, friends.

It’s October. There’s an NBA lockout. We’re bored as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!

Welcome to The [BLANK] Jones …

On today’s show, we get all nostalgic about good ol’ baseball, America’s national pastime. Why was Melas a better umpire than player? What sage advice should be given to all young pitchers? What’s the proper way for a ballpark vendor to tout his wares? All that, plus, I don’t know, maybe THE BIGGEST TBJ ANNOUNCEMENT EVER!
