This is going to be a rapid fire show tonight, folks! Stephen has things to pack, and I have young children to corrupt (I’m taking them to starbucks to pump them full of caffeine before bed…). Actually, I just found out that Stephen is doing 80% of the moving this time around! (No doubt to make up for last years debacle ;p). So, I don’t have to get up too early, I don’t have to drive ALL the way to MoTown, and I don’t have to take crap down 8 flights of steps! This is the best news I’ve heard since… well, since our show. Cuz… we report on news? Get it? See what I did there? Anyone?
Factoid of the Week Your brain has huge oxygen needs: Your brain requires 20 percent of the oxygen and calories your body needs — even though your brain only makes up two percent of your total body weight.
Every time about this year I get excited for Halloween. I have no clue why, however. Actually, just two days ago marked the longest day of the year and the first day of summer… why this should spawn some internal desire for it to be dark at 4pm and for me to have to crawl through cobwebs and fake spiders to get upstairs is still a matter of some debate. It could be that I just happened to glance at a Halloween costume magazine that is laying on my floor… or it could be that I am 12 and just really like scary movies and dressing up (and CARAMEL APPLES). What does this have to do with the show, you ask? Not a damn thing.

Happy Birthday to US! 200 episodes and we are still around being insane and filling you guys in on random events around the globe that inspire, terrify, and totally gross us all out. Maybe more of the grossing out in this episode. Do NOT eat while listening to the News Better Left Untold section this time around. Bleh. Special thank you to Eryck Webb for his AMAZING 200th episode art. Was an awesome surprise! Thanks to everyone that turns up in the chat week after week to support Stephen and I and just hang out for a couple hours. It means a lot and totally makes the week kick arse!
Factoid of the Week A coat hanger is 44 inches long if straightened …so is a man BOOM!
This one time I was walking thru the woods and I was stepping on leaves and stuff. I happened across a twig. I went to step over it (it was a pretty twig) and the twig goes, “Hey, what gives! I’m not good enough to step on?” After my initial shock, I picked the twig up to see if it had a mouth (how can twigs talk without mouths?), but the twig informed me that it was using it’s brain to talk to me… that twigs, traditionally, did not have mouths. I was like, “Whoa.” So, I took the twig (his name was Timmy) home with me and put him in a pot of dirt so he would feel at home. Now, Timmy the Twig and I have tea every day at noon. (Also, the show is awesome this week… listen to it.)

Tonight’s show was brought to you by me, Steve, and a couple of my good friends! I’m usually pretty anxious about doing a show without Ash there by my side, but we did okay tonight! Ash couldn’t be with us because she has to cram her brain for a very difficult exam coming up in a few days. Tonight I was joined by Steph as my co-host, and we were happy to welcome Robert Villegas, of My So Called 8 Bit Life, and Coleman Ranahan, of the Coleman Ranahan Podcast. Good times had by all! I hope you all enjoy this somewhat random episode of H&H!
