A dodgy affair from Bollywood to VoxPopCon to cord-cutting to musical acts that ends as a process instead of a product and may, intentionally, not be one of our best efforts... to be fair.

A long and winding ramble, at The Central bar in Toronto, between myself and Mssrs. Rick Weiss and Steven Joncas of The Zero Check podcast. Somewhere we wandered from television to movies to children's literature to Russian brides to a Seinfeld-esque tribute to the Domincan cigar rollers with Rick's "Vietnamese" cigarette roller, culminating in a two-fisted money-making opportunity in corporate team building.
