Been wondering something for a while now:

Does Geo add voice effects like the plane PA and dramatic echo while doing the cast live, or does he do that as a post-production thing?

Not that I think this is the main influence of The Lester Bank show, but as I listened to that, I couldn\'t help but wonder - are you a fan of The Firesign Theatre?

I have my name in with the Eternal Earthbound Pets organization for if and when they expand their network (hey, is that an innuendo? \\\"hey baby, I\\\'ll expand your network\\\"...) to New York State. Because, in the slim-to-none chance that there were actually to be any sort of biblical rapture type thing-y, it\\\'s not the pets\\\' fault that their owners were inconsiderate bastards who got pets knowing full well they couldn\\\'t fulfill their commitment to the pets.

My favorite laugh out loud moment:

Geo: ..the lovely Ms.Information will be there celebrating her BRILLIANT design......WHAT?!!

Ms.Info: [barely audible clarification of her design contribution to book]

[an inexplicably annoyed]Geo: YEAH, FIIIINE!! WHATEVER!

Smooth, George. Very smooth.

Holy blazing saddles! Holy crocodile dundee! What the funk?

That Lester Bank monologue thing: I must memorize it. I am gonna do it. I\\\'m going to show the world. Damnit.

Geo, at the risk of sounding uninformed (but I am, hence my very ASKING this question!) what was the inspiration for that intro? I\\\'d love to know!

Holy crocodile dundee, that Lester Bank intro is one of Geo\\\'s best evaaarrrr!!!!

I am absolutely going to memorize it and present it as a monologue and show the world how it\\\'s done! It is gonna happen!

Geo, I\\\'d love to know what inspired that opening bit. If it is a reference to something, what is it exactly?

You scare the hell out of me, but for some reason I want to sign up for your newsletter.

Yours in musk,
