Kristyn Burtt loves the Olympics! She’s going into withdrawal. She also gets to meet a lot of famous folk because she works the red carpet interviewing people. I know nothing… enjoy that. I let her in on a LOT of the minutia of my life. Kristyn is fantastic. Listen UP.

Kira Soltanovich is a Korean Spa Dork. Seriously. I like a Korean Spa but she... she knows things. She’s a comic and is on The Tonight Show regularly. I have a great time on this ep. I hope you enjoy.

Josh Weinstein (of Freaks and Geeks and MST3K) discusses how he has to use CONSTANT VIGILENCE against being consumed by any dorkdom. So he goes from tree to tree, in the dork forest, looking for the perfect balance of joy before obsession. There’s a part of me that wants to encourage him to lose control. He cooks, he reads, he’s in a band, collects musical instruments, he’s making a documentary. It’s fascinating. Enjoy.

J.E.W.'s Roasted Chicken:

1. Preheat oven to 375º

2. Wash and dry a 4 lb chicken - place on a roasting rack in a shallow pan

3. Salt the cavity then stuff it with 1/2 an onion and 1/2 bulb of fennel (slice each half into a few pieces before stuffing)- a few crushed cloves of garlic are nice too (don't pack it too tight).

You can throw the balance of the onion and fennel into the pan to help flavor the basting liquid

4. Season the exterior to your taste - I usually use salt, pepper, garlic powder, and some crushed rosemary.

5. Spray or lightly coat the whole bird with olive oil.

6. Cook for 60-75 minutes (until leg is loose in the socket), baste after 40 and 50 minutes

7. Let roasted bird sit for 15 minutes before carving

Bill Willingham writes one of my favorite ongoing comic stories (Fables). I’m Live at CONvergence in Minneapolis (Poster by StrawberryLuna is this week’s image). Again, I’m excited enough for the both of us. I weed off a LOT and keep asking him if he’s seen random movies. I’m told there’s a way to interview people at conventions. I did not know that. But he rolls with my weirdo questions. Enjoy.
