Another of these little project ideas that has come on the show, is now yours to enjoy or confuse others. The Switched ON Show Phrase generator was created to give you something to say in every situation. Just hit generate, and you’ll be able to compare the beauty of a woman in public to something anyone can relate to: “Did you see her? She’s as hot as a gynecologist with down syndrome!” You’ll amaze your friends and they’ll be as envious as a gallon of accountants at a Six Flags theme park or as confused as an army of bionic wookies at an adult film shoot; either way you are likely to be given the key to the city, be the benefactor of a virgin sacrifice, and be elected the king of words.
An idea that’s come up on the show a few times, the Premature Movie Ending is just what it sounds like; we take well-known movies and end the story before it really begins. These have come up in SOS-072, SOS-074 and even later in SOS-094 in the form of short movie trailers, early credit roles and totally anti-climatic endings. So, we’ve done it. Well, a few times anyway.
This summer we edited a few of these to get the ball rolling, and have seen them pulled from YouTube already, with Back to the Future being removed multiple times. So, we’ve moved them here for your enjoyment. We bring you Star Wars, Top Gun and Back to the Future.

In 2007, we announced that show 150 would be the our last show; the end of switched:ON. -A decision that was hard to make, but necessary none-the-less. We always knew when we announced it that we’d want to get together and record something, but what that would be, and how we would relate that to a show that was ‘over’.
Of course we did record, and even when the original show domain was gone, we still put a few odd shows out and released them into the feed. A few core listeners stuck around and heard these, and a few casual people stumbled on then as well. For many, these remain unheard.
Now, we’ve returned. Coming back for a less agressive schedule (one release per month) we are bringing back the same old thing… because it works for us. We’ll hang out, we’ll turn on the mics, we’ll sing some songs or play an odd game when we get bored, and we’ll try to make each other laugh. Will we do this forever? We don’t know. Will there be insane laughter every show? We hope so. Will Rob totally lose it with stupid people? Probably. What we do know, is that we are back, and we will try to have the best time we can… and let you hear it.
