The guys open by harmonizing with the theme song. DVK wants people to start covering the theme song, and wonder what it would be like if Eddie Vedder did it. Rory does and Eddie Vedder impression and DVK calls him “Eddie Better.” DVK says it’s up there with Rory’s foley work. Rory then “covers” a Pearl Jam song “Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town.” “You’re better than Scott Stapp!,” says DVK. Then Rory sings like Scott Stapp, and follows it with some Christopher Cross. They go to the letters, and DVK jokes that everyone has been sending in shitty letters. Rory decides that he is going to divorce his wife, and undo his good parenting so that he can be a rock star. The first letter comes from a musician from the band Wild Adriatic, who invites Dan and Rory to come up on stage with them. They then talk about doing karaoke, and Rory says that he’s done live band karaoke singing The Doors, and they go into a brief discussion about what songs to pick and not pick when doing karaoke. DVK earnestly asks Rory if Phish songs have lyrics. DVK uses the Rocky line “what are we gonna do?” again in reference to this letter. Before the 2nd letter Rory talks about coming in 3rd in a Celebrity Pro/Am golf tournament that he did for St. Jude. For the 2nd letter DVK says that his reality show would be called “Been a While” which would use the Staind song as the theme song. They talk about how they both hate reality television. DVK loves HGTV, Property Brothers, Deadliest Catch. Rory loves Great British Baking Show because people are in it and love baking and are nice to each other. The letter writer’s sister was on The Bachelor, and they want them to ask is they know Michael Keaton, to see if he’ll be on the show. Rory talks about how he auditioned for Last Comic Standing. They mention at the end that tickets are on sale for the Red Clay Comedy Festival.
