Things and Stuff for April 9, 2011, the last one for a while

Well, here we are again, with this week’s rather unusual show. ‘What’s so unusual about it, given that most shows are considerably strange by default?’ Well, this one was pre-recorded, something I never thought I would do. That’s right, for … Continue reading
