The Swiss chemist was born 112 years ago today. Kyle plays selections from his 2006 release, A Model Psychosis, which tells the story of the man and his problem child. Commentary on America’s socially acceptable chemical addictions like phenethylamine and caffeine, instructions on how to murder someone with nicotine extract, and an appreciation of bejeweled skeletal remains in “I Would Totally Do That”.
Celebrating California’s cannabis legalization with a blues arrangement of Black Sabbath’s Sweet Leaf, Rainy Day Women #12 & 35, et al. Kyle praises open source file hosting system NextCloud and discusses the slippery slope from Dungeons and Dragons and the Tandy TRS-80 to the insidious world of music, as well as the difference between “getting” someone and understanding them (like Trump voters), and #metoo. Brought to you by Phyllis.
Kyle remembers to unmute his audio. He wears the “pill box hat” he wore to his in-laws’ for Christmas, believing his hair to be “insanely dumb” due to an action his wife considered “rash”. Discussion of bad hat decisions. [Disclaimer: Not a celebration of Kwanzaa aside from the hat]
By Congressional action, Thursday will henceforth be known as Saturday. But Saturday will still be Saturday. So, two Saturdays a week. And no Thursday.

Kyle admits to bingeing on ham sandwiches and agonizes over releasing an EP now versus further delaying the next full length album.
In which Kyle extolls the virtues of Jameson (and its superiority over Jack Daniels) and Man of Constant Sorrow. Also featuring “What’s Pissing Me Off Now”. Because it’s important that we can share, and that you know you’re not alone. [Spoiler: We did not kick their ass on that thing]
