Very crowded studio today! Quang Dang and Bob Aagard join Jeff, Forrest, and Ultimate Bob for a chat around the studio in an attempt top either repair, or take over, the world! So … It’s Memorial Day
This is a “Holiday” that is supposed to mean something. Republican’ts cheapen it with false patriotism and political posturing – rampant capitalism whores it out to sell cars, carpet and furniture – and most people have lost touch with what Memorial Day stands for.
Memorial Day used to be observed on May 30. The Veterans of Foreign Wars and Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War still advocate returning the holiday to that date. The VFW released a statement in their 2002 Memorial Day Address that I think pins down one of the points I tried to make on the show:
“Changing the date merely to create three-day weekends has undermined the very meaning of the day. No doubt, this has contributed a lot to the general public’s nonchalant observance of Memorial Day.”
So – yeah. Here’s your links:
Melissa Merlot joined Jeff, Jon, and Forrest in the studio again – I think she’s sweet on us, and, really, who the hell would blame her? We’re adorable! Or something. Shit, maybe she felt like she couldn’t leave? Prison mentality? I dunno. Look, this one is VERY funny, and very, very …um … naughty. We’ve got an all new GOP Jesus Wanker of the Week, the Ghomert of the minute, Jason Williams is back with an all new Bat Sh@t Crazy – breaking down the Utah GOP and their wacky weekend of weird! That and so much more!
So, ENJOY! Here’s your links.
Holy Buckets, we are BACK! JM, JC, and Forrest were joined by the lovely, talented, and funny Melissa Merlot – who may or may not have something to do with Conspurracy Theories. Check out her stuff at www.melissamerlot.com. There was a lot to talk about on our first show back from – where ever the hell we ended up. Except for Free Comic Book Day. We knew what happened there, I guess.
Regardless – here we are! And, guess what? It’s like every dirty joke we haven’t used in polite company over the last month sneaked into this show. Here’s the links, bitches!

Just when you think you’ve been abandoned, forever and for good, Jason Williams pops up with a fresh Bat Sh@t Crazy to relieve the week of it’s otherwise pasty overtones. As the sequester cuts get tighter and tighter, the GOPpers are still screaming “we’ve got to screw old and poor people before it’s too late!” – whenever that is. Seems to me that the GOP will always make time to screw anyone without papers … incorporation papers, that is. Enjoy, my lovelies!
Oh, well, I tried folks. The difference between a “2” and a “3” on our old recording lap top google machine is the difference between a regular and a small The LEFT Show Episode. This is a short episode. It’s kinda like Bat Sh@t Crazy back when Jason was first doing those. Kind of a Beat Poetry Reading of Current events riffed from my mangled short term memory. Anyway – next week, back on our game – whatever that is.
Your pals from Hold 322 and The LEFT Show were at Free Comic Book Day this year at Night Flight Comics in Salt Lake City.*Mimi and the gang were all on hand to welcome the hordes of panting fanboys and girls who seem to like standing in line. I guess it’s how you train to go to a Con? Who knows.
My deepest apologies to you, the listener, for how weird this episode sounds. We were all over the place, really, having fun and goofing off. My biggest apology goes to Donna Weinholtz. I’ve been trying to get Donna on the show for months, and when we finally get her – we do this to her. She was a great sport, really, and a lot of fun. Lisa Westbrook dropped by for howdy, so, we threw her on the microphone. All in all, it was a fun day. If you want more of this hot mess, hit Hold 322 tomorrow to hear the even better stuff. www.hold322.com.
