I’m in Aspen about to perform at the Wheeler Opera House for the eve of New Year’s Eve and the staff offered me a local dork luminary. Andrew Kole came to Aspen to see Bonnie Raitt and then stayed. He’s a charmer. He’s a lucky lucky guy and he’s a talespinner. Enjoy.

We are at Meltdown Comics in the Nerdmelt Theater with Kevin Eastman. Co-creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I ask him all the questions he’s answered before and he was patient and interesting and awesome. I recognize many names and say “wow” every time. There’s a drinking game for you. Doesn’t mean I know who they are, but it was really neat to know. His show at Meltdown Gallery is still going! Then Baron Vaughn was sposed to do standup but we just do “panel.” But he still ends on a dick joke. A GREAT dick joke.

I’m in Austin, TX at Austin Books and Comics and I’m talking to Mary Jo Pehl, from MST3K and Cinematic Titanic, who wrote a book I just read called Employee of the Month and other Big Deals and it’s all awesome. She is my friend. We talk a LOT about what general dorks we are. I get a little TOO excited at the end. It’s pretty great. You’ll enjoy.

I’m in Austin, TX at Austin Books and Comics and I’m talking to Ernie Cline, who wrote a book I just read Ready Player One and it’s all awesome. I’m a super chatty. Lots of sales stories of my youth for no reason except me, obviously, wanting him to like me. But he’s gets in some good stories and that book is GREAT. Go read it. I hope you have as much fun as I obviously am. Enjoy.

I’m in Austin, TX with Noah Kuttler, friend of the show. He hooked me up the comic book store here in Austin and, no surprise; he is a HUGE comic book dork. He explains Bendis to me. And I want to hear it!! I could NOT be punchier in this episode. We're recording around a lady vacuuming in the bar and it's just like being there. Enjoy!
