#313: Squirrelly Squirrel Got Squirrelly and Died

2013-06-01 :: Dan Klass
Length: 56s

We just had a holiday weekend, so the same thing happened that happens every holiday weekend: a major appliance went belly up.  Turns out, if you put 20 lbs of dry ice in your warm refridgerator it’ll get cold.  Maybe forever. Hugo’s arch nemisis has taunted him from above for the last time.  Apparently, the...…

#312: I’m Working So Hard to Keep This Thing Moving

2013-05-16 :: Dan Klass
Length: 45s

Hudson has been working on his short film entry into the school film festival.  He is writing, directing and starring.  Yes, the triple threat.  Which means three times the work for his Director of Photography/Producer/Sound Guy/Gopher/Key Grip/Driver (yours truly).  So, one Sunday recently we all went to my wife’s office to shoot this psychological thriller....…

#311: Totally Psyched for an Audition of Biblical Proportions

2013-05-01 :: Dan Klass
Length: 1s

My left arm isn’t working properly.  It’s not broken or injured, it’s just way past its warranty and acting up.  I can’t seem to reverse curl a jug of orange juice.  Luckily, I’m rarely called upon to reverse curl a jug of orange juice. My daughter is a huge fan of the TV show Psych....…

#310: Short Sh*tty Show

2013-04-20 :: Dan Klass
Length: 37s

A short, shitty show about cow dung (shitty), not really appreciating the latest Batman movie (shitty?) and auditioning for a big part that I have no expectation of actually landing (shitty).…

#309: We’re Losing Contact

2013-04-10 :: Dan Klass
Length: 51s

I was thinking I wanted to take the kids to Universal Studios this Spring Break. It never happened.  I did, however, take a trip down memory lane and reminiced about Jaws Lake and the foam rock avalanche and The Six-Million Dollar Man’s spinning Sasquatsh tunnel. Recently my wife lost all the contacts on her iPhone....…

#308: More Comfortable as a Voyeur

2013-03-20 :: Dan Klass
Length: 1s

Patent trolls are trying to extort money from successful podcasters.  I think it’s just horrible.  Luckily for me, I have nothing to worry about.  I have nothing to sue for. I think I ate some bad pizza at Whole Farms.  Either bad pizza, or at least pizza that hates me.  I don’t know, maybe it...…

PILLBOX 138: Getting in Sync

2013-03-16 :: Dan Klass
Length: 28s

No new Pill this week, due to feeling like crap. I think it was something I ate. Hope to get the next episode recorded Monday. In the meantime, here’s one from June 2008, when I was getting kinda Buddha…   I’m trying desperately to tame the voices in my head, or at least recognize them...…

#307: Temptations, Temptations

2013-03-08 :: Dan Klass
Length: 53s

  I was faced with a moral dilemma: do I keep the things that fall into my lap (espeically since they would so perfectly fit my waist), or do I do the right thing, even though nobody is watching.  Or, is somebody watching?  Is the guy at my door looking for the thing that fell...…

#306: No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

2013-02-27 :: Dan Klass
Length: 34s

In an effort to avoid having me hang our laundry all over the house, my wife bought us a drying rack.  In an effort to take a break from doing laundry, I agreed to take a photograph.  But, you don’t ever really take just one photograph, do you?  You take hundreds.  Then you get phone...…

#305: Blunt Force Trauma

2013-02-10 :: Dan Klass
Length: 1s

I’m pretty sure at my age I should be listening to something other than Adam Ant.  Maybe some Mumford & Sons or Bon Iver if I want to maintain some sort of urban guy cred.  But, no, I listen to Adam Ant.  Adam Ant and my son’s music.  Did you know that young people like...…

A brand new Pill for 2013!  In this edition, we go to New York City to throw up in a taxi and then freeze at the 9/11 Memorial.  If I can give you some advice, please wait to go see the 9/11 Memorial until the temprature gets above freezing… We ate, we ordered in, we...…

#303: He Pulled Me Over with his Finger

2012-12-20 :: Dan Klass
Length: 1s

I got pulled over the other day on the way to school and got a ticket for rolling though a stop sign.  Not sure I would have rolled through the stop sign if the cop hadn’t been standing in the middle of the road, distracting me. My daughter has had many dance recitals recently.  It’s...…

Free re-release.  Originally podcast May 27, 2008 I saw this piece from 60 Minutes this morning on “Millenials.”, and I’m fearing for the future. Maybe it’s set the tone for the whole show.

Originally podcast on May 19th, 2008… Grand Master tells us that there are only two phrases you need to know that will get you through any situation: “Thank you very much” and “I’m so sorry.” Yeah?
