Show Notes: “Welcome to Moe’s” and other insincere gestures by fast food joints; “Undercover Boss”; the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino; no one seems to like their jobs; are we in a peak age of media consumption?; Music Break*; that time I went on a job interview and got busted by the cops; playing Jeopardy with Alexa; Video Street Video Store**; weird Christian pressure going on in youth groups; I had a whole episode of “The Overnightscape Central” dedicated to me; proximity friendships; Music Break*; Roddy Piper; Sutter Kane.

*Music Break: “I Saw the Figure 5ive” by half cocked; “I Know Where You’ve Been” by Forget the Whale”; “Stand Up” by Reno’s Men.

  1. I enjoyed your show, Mike and it was nice of you to mention the Central tribute.

    However, about the lack of comments — you may have overlooked the many times I have left comments for you on the ONSUG. I can’t tell you how many over the years, but I do remember one time stopping the comments because you were simply *not responding to them*.

    Also, PQ Ribber commented and spoke highly of your show weekly on his “Week in Review” segments on the Central and I believe I have mentioned your program many times as well on the Central in the same capacity. Not to mention that I have spoken about your show many times on Hey Everybody it’s Jimbo. I seem to recall The Fusebox doing a whole segment about you (about podcast rules or something) not too long ago as well. And I am sure I am overlooking others.

  3. Yeah, Jimbo, I guess I’m just a natural born misanthrope haha.

    Thanks for the comment, Dan! I like your music a lot!

    I enjoyed your music while shopping in Target via the show.
