  1. The bigger cinnamon rolls are yummier. I think because their bigger. They burn easily though.:(

  2. Nice job, looks like you’re feeling more comfortable and I’m getting the Marvo-ness we’re accustomed to in the written reviews.

  3. You look HAWT in a suit! And I love that you’re becoming more comfortable in front of the camera and are moving around more instead of stiffly standing there.

    As far as the length of each episode is concerned, your content is entertaining enough that I could probably watch you for around 10 minutes or so without getting bored.

  4. Nice suit….need a tuxedo next time 🙂 …tail and all!

    That’s funny, I was always wondering when they hit us with a weird diet drink. They’ve got all the funky other ones.

    I don’t know about that Oreo pic but that Crunchy Lava Cake looks awesome.

    Nice pic of the hot tub action….I like how that’s the video still.

    Hahaha, I never realized that about JIB. Hat’s off to them for being culturally diverse.

    Do the Mini Cinis taste any different then the kind in the can…cause if they’re the same but you don’t get the satisfaction of popping the can that would suck.



  6. Just found this blog. Good stuff. My only recommendation… it’s way too long. Cut it down to 2-3 min. I think it will be less intimidating to watch and will get more casual followers.

  7. @The Frozen Food Master: Thanks! Sadly, that ugly tie is the only tie I own.

    @Erin Brooks: I actually injured myself while practicing that stunt. I didn’t use enough pillows while practicing.

    @Shannon: I wish I could just build a Cinnabon inside my apartment. They’ll be so much easier.

    @cybele: Thanks! And thank you for writing that Shakespearean Insult Gum review.

    @Molly: I also look HAWT in a yellow t-shirt. I do agree I’m getting a little more comfortable in front of the camera.

    @Jay: I haven’t decided what I’m going to wear for the next episode. Maybe I wont wear anything at all. 🙁

    @Bear Silber: The kind that comes in a can. Is it like cheeseburger in a can?

    @Frank O.: I do have handcuffs, but that’s about it.

    @Neil THE HAMMER: I’m for real.

    @Gigi: Jet Li is shorter than me and I can kick his ass…with an army.

    @Natalie: That’s probably the third time I’ve ever worn that suit. I’ve had it for about a decade. If you look carefully at the video you can tell it doesn’t fit me very well.

    @DigitalBenjamin: First off, welcome to TIB. Secondly, I do want to make it shorter, but I feel 2-3 minutes is too short. I’m shooting for 4-5 minutes.

    @ripp: Have you stopped laughing yet, it’s been about 8 hours.

  8. Don’t worry about making these podcasts any shorter… they don’t feel too long at all! I actually wish they were a little longer. 🙂

    I don’t know; those Crunchy Lava Cakes looked a little scary to me… honestly, in the picture they don’t even look like real food; they look like plastic (mmm, plastic…) I wouldn’t be brave enough to eat that.

    Wow, those cinnamon rolls are tiny, especially for a product in the “Grands” line… what a rip-off! Even though it’s a “mini” cinnamon roll… a *standard* cinnamon roll is GIGANTIC; I think of a “mini” cinnamon roll as being the size of a standard dinner roll, or maybe a biscuit… I would be demanding my money back!

    Great podcast, Marvo (as always)! Oh, and love the suit. 🙂

  9. I have similar problems cooking Pillsbury cinnamon buns in the oven where the edge gets crusty. At least, I think that is a problem because I just want a home version of the Cinnabon that doesn’t have crusty edges but is all soft. Agreed with you that the cinnamon wasn’t a good replica.

    Love how you did this episode in a suit. You’re really selling yourself in it ;). And love that you’re getting comfortable and incorporate a “stunt” with Pillsbury dough boy!
