Opening

– Welcome back, Scott Compton
– We had somebody scheduled to sit in the 4th chair, but he is no longer with us. The official explanation is that he choked on vomit. We just don’t know whose.
– Tesla talk

Shall We Play a Game?

Remember That Song

Last Song: “Sentimental Street” by Night Ranger
I know what you’re thinking / Cause I’ve been there myself / I’ve
been kicked so many times / I don’t know nothing else / Still I noticed your urgency / I recognized the flair / That you got from chasing all those East coast dares

Winner: James Herington

New Song: But I know the neighborhood / The talk is cheap, but the story is good / And tales grow taller on down the line
