You Oughta Write That Down

You Oughta Write That Down

Adam and Ray recall what it was like being 27, and talk about Ray’s delusional neighbors. They also help a caller soundproof his room and discuss some routine home maintenance for new homeowners.


Show Summary

Today’s episode was recorded on Matt’s birthday, so Adam and Ray reflect on where they were in their late 20s. They also talk about some of the job opportunities Adam had at his fingertips, thanks to one of his mom’s crazy friends. The guys then respond to a couple emails; one a success story, the other dealing with canned lighting in a flaking ceiling.

Moving to the phones, the first caller asks Adam and Ray about soundproofing his room, which leads them to discussing Ray’s old delusional neighbors who he would constantly hear through the wall. Later they talk to a caller who wants to know some routine home maintenance tips now that all of his friends are becoming homeowners. As the show wraps up, the guys talk about the importance of turning the lights off when you leave the room, and Adam recalls all the shitty rooms he’s lived in over the years.

      Ray is the perfect compliment to Adam on this show. Make him a permanent co-host Aceman!

    Ray is a fantastic addition to the show. despite his antics, he seems to be an expert carpenter. If he has the time, he should come back every week.

    The show has really found its stride with the addition of Ray. AOTH is now every bit as good and well rounded as Ace’s main podcast. I think you’ll be able to draw a lot more crossover listeners now. Great job all around.

      I completely concur. I don’t particularly enjoy home improvement but Adam and Ray together is amazing. Whoever makes the decisions and/or reads this message board, please make Ray a permanent co-host.

    Rays good on here. I like how he checks Adam sometimes. I can’t believe Ace has slate counters? A sedimentary material like that stains so easy. And if you put enough shit on it to seal it, it looks like crap.

    For the light can gap dilemma. Pull the trim down, flat tape the gaps and replace the trim.

    Yes, Ray should be a permanent fixture on the show, and you should forget the studio, have with a mobile podcast that starts by busting into Ray’s apt, waking him up & start podcasting!

    Ray, you’ve come a long way since the Adam Carolla Project. Please become a regular co-host, even if the show only records when you can make it, it’s better than just Ace alone.

    Love me some Ray. Ace, please make him the co-host. Also, throw your buddy Chris on from time to time.

    DTR….. Ray and Adam together make the perfect team for Ace On The House. Ray needs to be on here permanently.
