Spiked Apple Cider, 2 Bloody Mary's, and 2 coffees spruced with whiskey

A more relaxed recording, where I sit out on the front steps of my apartment building and recount the Thanksgiving weekend -- a little drunk. Also: Iron bowl weekend, a review of "The Muppets".

SPECIAL -- "I am the Galleria"

Nothing “special”, really; just some recordings of me and Jessica walking around the Galleria mall on Black Friday. WITNESS the chaos, without worrying about being trampled upon by avaricious Americans, and FEEL the intensity of the third degree by a righteous security guard we run briefly afoul of.  Other topics and random ambiance ensue.

HB 56

This week saw one of the first arrests under Alabama's controversial new illegal immigration law. On this episode, I try to explain the law -- best as I can understand it -- and why it's being used as a prop for my home state to go to war with the Obama administration. Also: the movie "Cape Fear" (original and remake), the Natalie Wood drowning case being reopened after 30 years, and why Blues musicians can't get respect.

Praxis Crash

Exhausted after taking the grueling Praxis test, I nevertheless sit down to do a show, fraught with weird ideas and suggestions, such as what to do with my body after I die, and quitting teaching altogether to open a video store. There's a drinking game for this episode: take a shot of Ancient Age every time I say "You Know". 

Music for this episode performed entirely by Persson, off their wonderful Creative Commons album, "Outside the Walls"

The Halloween TV Special


This is a TV episode of THE MIDNIGHT CITIZEN I did with some friends last Halloween.  It's a horror hosting-style show, where I sit on a set we made, drink soda and beer, and show a movie, coming in at random intervals with the occasional sketch or fun fact about the flick. 

We wanted to go for a cable access feel, one of those local mainstays that you might come across as you flip through the channels late on some Friday or Saturday night in America.

Special thanks to everyone who helped make this happen: Dave Smith (director/lighting/camera), Jonathan Sweatt (props/sidekick extraordinaire), Jessica Clark (writing, mail, make-up and costumes, moral support), John Morse (props, PA, audience), and Tim Rocks (props, PA, audience). Extra special thanks to PAUL SMITH, United States Armed Forces Veteran and owner of the basement we shot this in.

Enjoy! And comment -- based on your feedback, we might do another one!

"Friday the 13th" Press Kit


I start out with a review of the flick “Money Ball”, then go on to a few more rants, interspersed with the ritualistic smacking of Quaker Oat Meal Squares cereal, chased with a PBR. Fun stuff.

Check out my friend Hunter’s online comic Vexxarr here, as well as his Apple “Think Different” parody from (circa?) 2004.
