Ep 21 - How We Acquitted Ourselves Over The Summer
As John Sebastian mused one morning while observing a fresh cold sore in the mirror, Welcome Back! Episode 21, the first episode of this, the Lousy Podcast's 2nd season, represents the epitome of man's/SK's inability to learn from his mistakes.
Our hiatus (Slovak for frittering away ill-gotten good will) was born of a dream in our hearts (Because Shantwon refused to put a song in our ears) that summer ticket sales for the Lousy San Francisco Walking Tour would propel SK Morton Creative to profitability and thereby allow SK to get out of this sweat lodge we call a bomb shelter. Instead, we're right back in the same old place where we desperately pander to the Throng for laughs.
This season, some of the names will change but for this kick-off episode we've got the usual gang of delinquents. There's the instigator and seeming ring leader, cocky (In that he's obsessed with chickens), half Italian, half Scottish, half of SK's brain, KS Notrom; The bi-ethnic, bi-lingual, bi-polar music VP (Whose absence from the Lousypalooza was excused by a phone call from his mother), Shantwon Zee; Let's see who else? Ooh, ooh, Squidge McSqueezy couldn't make it but Babette says, "Hi there".
Who'd have thought we'd all be back to to describe plans for a better podcast (Like a treasure hunt, game shows and new sponsors) and ultimately end up going down the same road as last year: Animal obits, urine in the tenderloin, closed businesses and tour updates.
Yeah, we did a lot of teasing and playing around this week but we're looking forward to a better season this year. If not you can email SK. He's on the spot. Welcome back!
