It's been awhile since the hot, burning center of David Walker was exposed to the air like so much magma being thrown from an erupting volcano. But it happened today, and the splashback was amazing. But first: Fatboy advances a crazy, poorly researched theory on education reform that I'm sure …

It makes sense that Mike Russell would be preoccupied with horror on Friday the 13th, but not the horror you're thinking of. He tells the tale of horrifying chutzpah that led him to enter into an art battle armed with festooned turtles. He discusses the horror of liking movie posters …

Byron Beck wants to get real, you guys. And I don't mean facetiously. He brings gifts from the olden days to get us softened up and nostalgic, and then he shares stories about getting lost in his own head when it comes to his famous friends, and how sometimes the …
