Tig -

 

Regarding GEDs...

I left high school one month before turning 16. A few years later, I took my GED and went to a community college for one semester. I then wrote a lengthy admissions letter to Connecticut College, and scheduled an interview. I was accepted with 95% of my tuition on scholarship, and graduated with a triple major. I took tooooo long of a time off to paint and wander, then I applied for the PhD program at Brown. I come from such a poor, nonacademic background, that I didn't even know Brown was an Ivy League university. I was accepted - rec'd my MA, then had a huge issue with my homophobic, sexist advisor who refused to acknowledge the persecution of gays during the Holocaust. I promptly taught my own section on it, had a screaming match with him...and alas, walked out for good. Phuck dat. Anyway - this rambling is all to say, you, too, can get your PhD and maybe quit before your last few years, and hey maybe even become penniless from student loans, and drive a '95 Miata with metallic KISS stickers that cover up all of the rust spots.

Any topic that lends itself to stories from the childhoods/adolescences of Tig and Kyle is A-OK in my book.

A really great episode guys. Those worship jams made me laugh harder than I have in quite some time. On a much more somber note, I was listening to this episode while I was driving home from Santa Barbara the night that the outcast kid carried out his grisly revenge fantasy in Isla Vista making the subject of this week's podcast eerily topical.
