Who’s 68Comeback Be Good For You

The January 3, 2013 edition of the 68Comeback Special was the first of the new year, so naturally we talked about how to not live in the past, how to not be a dick, why it’s important to keep your promises, and if there’s anything truly worthwhile to be found in the dumpster behind the adult video store.

I Wanna Rock The 68Comeback Between The Reds And Greens On Cruise Night

It was the last show of 2012, this December 27 edition of the 68Comeback Special. Taking his chance to do it all by himself as Craig busied himself with getting ready for Christmas 2013, Tom offered up an extended feature on pig knuckles, offered his predictions on where the New Year’s baby would be born, how long it would live and how many times it would marry, and talked extreme trash about every single one of the following artists. Did you miss it? For shame.

I See It All 68Comeback, But Who Wants Hope?

The December 13, 2012 68Comeback Special, if you’re hip to the Mayans, was the second last 68Comeback Special EV-ER, which is why we played Pig Destroyer and Townes, and why we did everything else exactly as we did it. Because nothing matters, at least not for much longer, though that shouldn’t stop a person from keeping a tidy home. Or radio show. In case we don’t see you next week, it’s been nice knowing you, more or less.

“I Like Lou Reed,” She Said, Sticking Her Tongue In My 68Comeback

They say, or at least they will one day, that it’s not really the Christmas season until Craig emerges from a quick week’s worth of hibernation, Tom takes out the tan sweater, and Jon Mick turns up with a big-ass holiday extravaganza to plug. This year, it really became the Christmas season with December 6, 2012’s 68Comeback Special. And thank goodness for that, or else maybe it may never have happened.

I Phone You And Say Nothing, Curse The 68Comeback The Rest Of The Day

I didn’t know before I arrived for the November 8, 2012 edition of the 68Comeback Special that Tom would not be there. This was disappointing because  I wanted to talk about how soft my hands felt and how good they smelled, and also about his recent Shoppers Drug Mart mission. But that’s okay, sick is sick, and it gave me a chance to celebrate the snowy Edmonton weather with a song I wrote and performed and recorded all by myself…

On Days I Try To Please My 68Comeback

Many thanks to Edmonton’s reigning Tag Team Storytelling Champions, Shawn Ohler and Todd Babiak, who took time out of their busy schedules to pay a visit and make this the best October 25, 2012 EVER. They helped out with some advance Hallowe’en celebrations, talked about how freaking great Edmonton is and what Metallica could have done instead of what they did, and ensured that Slint got played.
