45:18 – With apologies to Michael Franks, we didn’t spend Christmas in Kyoto, but we did explore the hallowed grounds of the Kyoto Animation gift shop and studios (the greatest anime production house ever, obviously), then down to the market that inspired Tamako Market, the Imperial Palace, and an equally impressive convenience store. Other topics include railfans at JR crossings, cicadas, fog and monsoons, Disney, pretty anime boys, Yahoo and Infoseek, and getting lost at Kyoto station. Sounds from the Osaka-Kyoto Shinkansen, and the Kyoto Municipal Subway.

“And his leg!” – Tupp, Episode 2, Hometownville

unnamed (51:20) For fun and nostalgia, Jimbo brings back to life (ala’ Gadzooks!) several fun skits from Hometownville. This is not necessarily “The Best of”, but more of a representation of the show that we all look back on with fondness.

In reality, the show was doomed for failure because of logistics. But we gave it a shot and certainly, many good things – including memories and smiles – came out of it.
