10/13/06 Show - Death + I'm Back = Fun

On a Friday the 13th in October, I played all songs about death as a friendly reminder that we will all, one day, be dead. Sure, most people don't want to die and it certainly brings me down to think that sooner or later, it will happen to me too but then I just try to think of all the other people that are also going to die. Then I'm happy again. Teach them to drive too slow in the fast lane.

I also urged listeners to vote No on Proposition 86. Cigarettes are already too damn expensive and it's not like only billionaire fatcats smoke them. You want to tax something more, tax golf. Tax guys who wear polo shirts and tuck them into their Dockers. Tax the latest Sting CD. Just lay off the smokers and tobacco industry for 5 seconds.

And here's an mp3 of the show for your troubles:
