The Midnight Citizen 223: “10 Things I Hate About You, Covid”

1:16:53 — Join Mike in the studio late on a Saturday night, where he reflects on becoming a Trump supporter (briefly) after a dream he had of attending the President’s Christmas party at the Plaza Hotel, and how the theory of meeting a President in person — or, even, in a dream — can greatly improve your chances of voting for him. Also, is Ellen Degeneres done for, and does anybody care?, and we drink a toast to Harvey Updyke, the world’s most dangerous football fan in arborists’ circles, who died this week at 71.

The Midnight Citizen 222: “How To Improve Your Life Through Improv” (7/26/20)

Join Mike in the studio late on a Saturday night.

Show notes: Why does improvisational theatre get such a bad rap? Two improv-themed shows on Netflex: “Middleditch and Schwartz” and “Don’t Think Twice”; the history of improv and negative impressions; the time I embarrassed myself in an improv class with the Second City (it still makes me cringe to this day); lightning struck a tree outside my house this week; Music Break*; a toast to Regis Philbin, who passed away this week at 88; “Live with Regis and Kathy Lee” and “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?”; cool guys in 80’s films; Video Street Video Store**; hindsight is 2020, like the year.

The Midnight Citizen 221: “Frog Goes to Helltown”

1:25:00 — Join Mike in the studio late on a Saturday night.

Show notes: Kids drinking from glass bottle cokes elicit angry reactions from the old guard; generation gaps; it seems like my friends and I are just grown-up children, or maybe not; Cuyahoga Valley National Park, which I visited last year and thought was so beautiful,, is otherwise known as “Helltown, USA” due to urban legends of monsters and satanic cults; Music Break*; “Unsolved Mysteries” returns to Netflix in a very stripped-down, non exploitative, and boring form; Video Street Video Store**; ending the show abruptly due to audio issues.  

*Music Break: “State of Mine” by The Crevulators; “Out All Night” by The Riptones All music is played under a Creative Commons License (Attribution, noncommercial, no derivatives) and is available at the Freemusicarchive.org

**Video Street Video Store: “1982 World’s Fair”

This episode experienced some major audio issues. The music is mixed way louder than it sounded on my headphones. Thank you for your patience, and I will continue to work these bugs out and come out with a cleaner show next week.
