Chandler's passing and Lady Gaga's really, really bad headaches have nothing on my disappointment in missing Halloween after buying my first costume in years. Fortunately, I'll get an extra hour to think about it this weekend. Yay?

This would be a return to form if I ever had form to begin with. Instead, it's a quick check-in to reveal my (mostly) legitimate excuses for staying away from microphones for a while. Topics include: 31st Ave W and Fecal Street, Happy Birthday to Me, People LOVE podcast ads, and Danger is my middle name.

Banks collapsing, experts pontificating, podcasters traveling, and an incredibly childish analogy are the "topics" this week. Apologies in advance to vegans and vegetarians, as there is a lot of discussion about meat. Well, not really ABOUT meat, but a lot of discussions with meat. Yes, I speak with meat.

I realized that almost all of my Portland friends are now long-distance friends, to varying degrees. It made me sad. Who is to blame? Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and his ongoing inability to do even the slightest positive thing while in office.

Let's get this out of the way, this episode is anti-cyclist, anti-podcaster, anti-couple, and anti-dead guitarist. If you have issues with any of that then you probably shouldn't listen. If you don't, HEY! SMASH THAT LIKE BUTTON, BABY!
