    It's funny when you play the "hold on the phone" music when you have to pause. It so reminds me of being put on hold on the phone.

    That clip is the muzak from the elevator scene in The Blues Brothers -- somehow, it just seemed appropos.

    Just when you thought it was safe to go back on the airwaves...

    I thought we'd heard the last of her back in the days BEFORE the internet was a public phenomenon and the only ones who had to put up with her ramblings were the 3 students at Illinois Wesleyan University who happened to be up at 4:00 o'clock AM in the morning when she hijacked the college radio station with the Tanta K and the Elf show!

    But now she's back, dragging another seemingly innocent sidekick into the ether (or maybe that's what she used to knock him out before setting up the torture chamber wherein he broke down crying like Britney in a Rite-Aid and agreeing to be her partner in podcasting crime).

    And you just have to ask yourself "What the f****!?" (See clever use of interrobang)

    Congrats! I've heard on the French Toast Underground that Albin is on the loose and may be looking for a podcasting platform to air his manifesto.

    Tell Albin that he's more than welcome to air his manifesto on our show whenever he likes -- he just needs to spray with air freshener afterwards. All he needs is Skype and some sort of headset w/microphone!
