Yup - another awesome show. Just one correction on the web-bonus Beer chart - Jonah mixed Stone Brewery in CA (which has the awesome line up of Arrogant Bastard and Double Bastard IPAs) with Rogue Brewery in OR who has some great beers in their own right.
If you're a fan of beers, definitely give them a shot - the Stone stuff is really strong for a beer (not 4Loco strong!) and really hoppy.
Just downloaded the Holiday episode with PFT and gonna listen to it now. Over 2 hours! Can't wait!

tom rognog - be sure to pick up the Holiday ep if you're an Earbuds or We're Buds fan! Lots of EOWB action to be found.
Shit, between the Holiday ep and this, I just spent 4 of the last 24 hours with Howard and Kulap. That's more than I saw my *kids* in that timespan.

All this giving Howard the Business for his improvisational pronunciation, but you folks were too polite to jump on Jonah Ray for his "gregarian" monks...they're kind of gregarious, after all, while doing their Gregorian chants. And doesn't young Evancho pronounce her name "evanko" rather than "evantcho" a la Margaret or John Cho? (I'll believe it's -Cho, but frankly I've been missing some pledge specials. and definitely avoid AMERICA"S GOT TALENT as enthusiastically as I avoid GLEE or tv talk or other "talent" shows hosted by people who are their own biggest fans by far)...Bette Midler would be an example of someone from Hawaii who's had some comedic success, among other sorts (and she's really from Oahu...). I, too, went to high school across the street from Sacred Heart Academy, only since I'm more Kremer-aged, I was probably riding the same city buses with Tia Carrere, might well've seen her looking adorable in the skirts and white shirts they required at Sacred Heart (since I'm pretty much Carrere-aged, too)...I was going to the shortlived punk-rock-oriented club 3-D at about the same time as Kulap-aged JR was learning how to walk.
