Amanda and Richard talked to loads of folks in the Peoria Street area for the 2006-2007 season kick off, maybe even you! Lots of people you know or have heard of get drunk and say embarrassing things! Awesome!

Also, Brian Andrews sets the world straight on how totally fucking stupid Burning Man is. MTV owns you, you sad, sad west-coasters who have more money than imagination, fuck the pre-packaged and throw your own damn party.

Damn, the Touch and Go party was mind blowing.

Tony Tasset, what a damn nice guy.

This week we visited the Tasset/Ledgerwood studio-fortress complex. We drove in a rented Humvee for hours into the jungle and were ushered in by the armed guard.

The interview is not to be missed. The outro to this show has a special cameo by Dominic Molon.

Wow.

The opening few seconds is payback for the West Town Gallery network map. How dare you. Duncan has never eaten a bratwurst in his life.

Anyway. 52 weeks worth of shows. Damn.

“We’re not the first,
I hope we’re not the last
‘Cause I know we’re all heading
for that adult crash The times is so little,
the time belongs to us
Why is everybody in such a fucking rush?
Make do with what you have
Take what you can get
Pay no mind to us
We’re just a minor threat
We’re just a minor threat”

Much talk about art history in Chicago and an overall fascinating time.

The longest episode yet, but every minute is a gem.
