#episode #110 - "Woops, we just have to sound better..."

So this is a story of shitty sound, tossed away shows and a pat on the back of sorts. We recorded #110, a really funny show with Manhattan Man and it sounded horrible. So bad, we tossed it with only about a 10 second section saved. Maqz went out and bought a new microphone and we tried it again. It sounded better then T Fab P had internet issues and we let it ripen for a while. But then we were surprised to learn we got a mention on Total Talk Nonsense out of nowhere. We are now endeavoring to put the 4 minute segment up on the website soon. Meanwhile if you listen to episode #110 closely you will hear at the very end, after the music dies down, the only surviving 10 seconds of the original episode #110. Enjoy it...

We begin in a Boston school where they are spending thousands to teach kids how to play, move to the governmant PSA's about the H1N1 virus prevention, and talk about possibly being able to fax human organs in the future. We return to this earth with some comments about if there are jobs Americans won't do even in this bad economy and finish in court discussing body odor being made against the law.
