TMR 14.6: “A Strolling Game of Pocket Billiards” [J R]
Chad and Brian go it alone this week, and prove that even the most claustrophobic sections (trigger warning for anyone who grew up with hoarders) of J R are also riotously funny. They also don’t understand money or business, but no one else in the book seems to either . . . There’s also a lot of talk about Gibbs’s footwear issues.
This week’s music is “Laugh Track” by Ben Hopkins, one of the greatest songs of 2020.
If you’d prefer to watch the conversation, you can find it on YouTube along with all our past episodes. You can watch the next episode on Wednesday, January 27th where you’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions, make comments, or correct inaccurate statements. Here’s where you can find the complete reading schedule.
Be sure to order Brian’s book, Joytime Killbox, which is now officially available at better bookstores everywhere thanks to BOA Editions
