192 The LEFT Show – ‘Lil Quickey Nooner!


Things have been totally chaotic this week, so, this one is short and fast and, frankly, quite rambling. I mean, I’m exhausted and on the 3rd day of a screaming purple migraine – but it’s kinda funny. I spend most of the time talking about Mark Shurtleff and John Swallow … so, you know – if you’re from out of town, this might get a little dry.

On July 23rd, the cast of The LEFT Show and Hold 322 will be at the Barnes & Noble at 1100 E. 2100 S. in Sugarhouse. If you’re in the area, drop in and say hi as we celebrate Batman’s 75 Birthday!

Fat Camp starts TOMORROW, July 22, 2014 - REGISTER NOW! 

The Deadline for Vote Not GOP is fast approaching. – PARTICIPATE NOW! 

Now – ON WITH THE SHOW! such as it is.

191 The LEFT Show – Leviticus 19:33


Leviticus 19:33 - “‘When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them.” Thou, apparently, can still cherry pick the parts of the bible that let you hate whomever you want, I guess. That’s why we have another round of The LEFT Show Presents The LEFT Show’s GOP Jesus Wanker of the Week!

JM Bell, Melissa Merlot, JC Carter, and Bob Easton are in the studio for The LEFT Show this week – making their way the only way they know how! Jason Williams is in with a new The Sidetrack about the perils of Hack-tivism. All this and more!

#13 Tell Me A Story – The Long Longing Chapter Three

Life is a bit more under control, but, due to a few threatening emails, here’s another non-conversation. As requested, and then promised on The LEFT Show, I have again pulled an old story of mine out of its dusty drawer to read for you folks. This is the third chapter of a novella called The Long Longing that I wrote in 1997. It’s a bit pedantic, yes, but, so was I. Regardless, I still love the voice in this story, no matter how much the anger and bitterness that, in 1997, I was only imagining at, and now … well, talk about being careful what you internalize.
