stop trying to make sesh happen

Welcome, new followers! Updates have been scarce while we are busy working with all the goodness that came out of our 3rd studio recording sesh — which is different from a session, by the way. A common misconception is that the slang word, “sesh” is shorthand speech for the word “session.” What it actually means is “a wartime tribunal called to decide punishments for making improper sacrifices during Saturnalia.” We  sure punished many a guilty pagan after that last sesh. Christians, too. We don’t discriminate.

Stay tuned for Episode 3!

A Little Taste of the Episode 3 Script!

We record episode 3 on Wednesday morning! We are very excited to have our first guest star on the show: Rochester comedian Austin Lafond shall appear as Frank Woz, Willem’s younger brother. Here’s a sample of what we’ll all be intentionally saying into microphones very soon:

BRETT-ASHLEY: So tell me, what’s it like being Willem’s brother?


FRANK: Night-light.


BRETT-ASHLEY: Huh?


FRANK: He sleeps with a night-light.


WILLEM: Nocturnal illuminator, not the same thing. If I get an idea in the middle of the night, it’s there to provide light so I can physically see my pen strike my notepad.


FRANK: That’s what lamps are for. You’re afraid of Mittens.

 

SARA: Me too! One always escapes when I need them. Do you think all the mittens are hiding somewhere thinking about me?

 

BRETT-ASHLEY: Who’s Mittens?

 

FRANK: I’ll get to that in a second sweetie (Directed at Brett-Ashley). First, I have to know the name of the lovely lady I’m sitting across from.

 

<LONG PAUSE>

 

MANNY: Sara, I think he means you.

 

FRANK: I think I need to know everything about you.

 

SARA: (Giggles) Oh! Stay tuned everybody, I’m working on my autobiography.               

 

BRETT-ASHLEY:WHO’S MITTENS!?
