Some things you just have to do as soon as humanly possible. You send out your thank-yous to the those who helped you paint your kid’s room. You hammer out a (very detailed!) agreement with the John Carpenter fanatic in your life. And you have an emergency meeting about What Is To Be Done just as soon as you receive word that Pere Ubu is planning a tour. If you are to be thought of as a responsible person, you take care of the necessities. On the April 14, 2016 edition of the 68Comeback Special, we showed that we are to be thought of as responsible people.

Are You Comeback? It’s Easy

The March 31, 2016 edition of the 68Comeback Special featured a reconsideration of all the advice, good and bad, we’ve given or gotten over our whole entire lives, with particular attention paid to the difference any of it could possibly have made.
