What you see above is an entire episode (lucky #13) of the public access show I was a part of back in Tucson. It was called Tech X and was nominally a computer call-in show. We took a few computer calls, but had much more fun screwing around with our friends and making fun of the callers, each other and saying extremely inappropriate stuff.\
I only did about twenty episodes. I watched a few on the plane today, and the first five or so are really painful to watch. By episode ten, though, when we moved to Saturday nights at 10 (opposite the local news and then SNL), we really picked up steam. We were actually funny for short stretches!\
I played Otto the HED and was basically a fat head floating behind the two “stars” of the show, Lee King and Hugh Mongous. Yeah… ummm… just watch it. Or don’t. You’re an extremely strong or masochistic human being if you can make it to the end.
