This is the program that was supposed to air on Wednesday the 10th, but was cancelled at the last minute. I don't think many changes were made, and if they were, I don't remember what they were. It was a "terrible evening" due to the George Zimmerman verdict, the news of which came in less than an hour before showtime if I remember correctly. "How do I deal with this," I wondered. The same way Bombast deals with everything--by remembering it's not a show about anything generally regarded as important.
It is uncanny how a couple of songs seem to speak to the moment, but that's purely accidental.
This program strikes me as one of the better shows I've done, a delicious mint after an awful meal of a week.
