Site Updates: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Site updates:

  • You may have noticed a selector for provinces at the top of the page. Added the ability to list events for all of Canada now. Most provinces are listed individually, with the Maritime and Northern provinces and territories grouped together due to only having a few events. I won’t be adding events for provinces other than BC, but if you’re hosting a Canadian comedy event, you can add it here yourself for free http://www.laughterhouse.ca/add-a-show/
  • A few more Vancouver shows have been added.
  • Upcoming – While the site has been growing and running well, there hasn’t been a ton of participation from event hosts. While adding events is quick, finding them takes me quite a bit of time. I’ll be adding events for the few venues that I have been in contact with, but I’m discontinuing updates on the rest. Public reception and use of the site has been good, but if venues don’t care then I’m reluctant to as well. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Lou Reads ep175: The parasite infested forums of The Cure Zone[/caption]

You know that feeling you get when the world is telling you that you should take anti-psychotic medicine to deal with the invisible parasites you’re being plagued by? And you know the feeling you get when you tell the doctors you don’t want to take the medicine because it will just make the parasites sleepy but not actually kill them. And you know that feeling when you decided to drink your urine to help with your self diagnosed diseases? Wait, you don’t relate to any of these feelings? Well you must not be a member of the forums of Cure Zone.

Lou Reads ep 174 – The Forums of Prison Talk

Lou Reads the Internet.. for you. Why? Because, why not.

Have you considered marrying a man who you’ve only known through a pen pal connection? In this age of swiping right or left to instantly connect with someone, you can still find some people who are meeting people like it’s 1980 or something! Prison Talk is a forum for the loved ones of people who are somewhere within the prison system of the United States. It’s a support group for those looking to commiserate with others in the same misery boat.

This episode is a departure from the typical grossness and stupidity that I sometimes deal in. There is a lot of head scratching behavior on there, to be sure. But it’s a small glimpse into the world of those, mainly women, who are dealing with a life where revolving door incarceration is the norm. There is no guarantee that they’ll ever actually meet the people they are writing to in person. Or worse that if they do get out of prison there is the chance that they aren’t who they say they are…

I hope you enjoy it.
