Lost and Podcasts

So I wasted almost all of last Thursday reading about the blast door map from last week’s Lost. I never put much effort in trying to decipher what the fuck’s going on, but that stupid map sucked me right in. Hopefully this is an indication that the rest of the season will feature more island creepiness and less tropical soap opera.

I finally got around to setting up winamp to subscribe to podcasts. Trouble is, I haven’t found many good ones. Obviously, the Ricky Gervais Show is great, Louie CK’s is always entertaining, and The Sound of Young America makes an hour of Photoshop go by a little quicker, but I’d like to know if you have any other recommendations.

I know Matt listed some of his favorites recently, but I’m more interested in comedy. I refuse to use iTunes so it’s kind of a pain to find the good stuff among the thousands of shitty, self-indulgent, speaking into a microphone to chase away the loneliness, stuff that people have decided to unleash upon the world.

The Good Students’ Show Tomorrow

I wrote this as an update to the post below, but since so many folks use RSS these days, they probably won’t see it in time.

The music acts for tomorrow’s show cancelled. Since we rely on the other acts to bring in new people, it could be a more empty house than usual. The only thing I hate more than performing for strangers is performing for no one; so please come. For just $5, you’ll see us and Bragging to Children.

As further incentive to get you out of the house on a Tuesday night, I’ll be giving away signed BFW books to the first ten people I don’t know who come and mention Big Fat Whale. There will also be a chance for you to snag some art I did for two of the sketches.
