FOTS 33 @FrogAvalanche the absentminded rascal

Friends of the Show Episode 33 with Hoppers @FrogAvalanche

“—Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
Yours arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
Looking into the heart of light, the silence.”
– T. S. Eliot, The Waste Land

This week’s friend is a delightful Aussie from the land down under I’m talking of course about Hoppers @FrogAvalanche. IF you don’t know he is one of the super OG original nice twitter accounts, where he ran a long running ‘Twitter feature’ series, promoting all kinds of great accounts, once a week, for so so long!

Australia Chat

Hoppers Stories:
-Walked home from work (I live close 3km away) and saw my car wasn’t in my drive-way. Thought it had been stolen. Goes to call police. Remembered I’d driven to work that morning.
-Turned up to work in two different shoes. Two different colours, brown and black.
-Called in sick on a day I was not scheduled to work.
-Ive gone to the wrong cinema on the wrong day to see the wrong film.
-The first person I followed on Twitter, followed me back after six months. Then deactivated forever two weeks later.
-Was challenged to become a vegetarian for a month. Chipped a tooth on my first meal (some nuts). Quit it immediately.
-Drove all the way across Australia, only to realise when I was setting to return back a week later that I didn’t have enough money to do so.
-Went to Green Bay to see the Packers. On a week they were in Buffalo.
-While in Milwaukee being sad about not seeing the Packers, I did laundry at a laundrette. And forgot to check pockets or the whereabouts of my passport. Washed my passport. Had to cancel all my holiday to get to LA for the Australian Embassy.
-Took five days to replace the passport because I had to get my ID flown over. Moped in LA drinking beer and writing mopey postcards.
-The plane flying me home, finally, got damaged docking – another three day delay.
-Hired a car in Arizona, and promised myself to drive well on the 600 mile journey. Got pulled over by a cop in 2 miles for an illegal u-turn. Got so stressed after that, I got lock-jaw after 100 miles because clenching teeth. Teeth!

“It’s wrong, wrong, wrong, but we’ll do it anyway cause we love a bit of trouble” – Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys, “Balaclava”)

Tom is @trojansauce on twitter

Tom is one of the funniest dudes on Twitter, also, he has a gruff and mean persona online, but I found out that he is really a nice guy after all. We talk about having fun on Twitter, the time Tom wrote a novel for his Dad, and he reads an excerpt from some of his writing!

And of COURSE the FINAL Question comes from none other than Mike Bigby @MikeBigby

He asks: “Tom will you do me the honour of meeting up with me for a beer?” Tune in to see what Tom says!

Also, we get to the bottom of the Mike Bigby feud.

WOW Thanks for all your questions please follow @FOTSPod on twitter to send a question to a future guest!

WRAP UP – TOM is an author and will perform a piece and we shall discuss.

GET TOM’S BOOK HERE: The Murder of Jed Lombardo

OR Tom really wants to talk about this band and his tattoo, so go on tell us then.

Also – I made up a way to sound like you’re doing an english insult. Any synonym for ‘complete’ and any inanimate object, preferably two syllables each.

ie. complete, utter, absolute, outright, total, wholesale, straight out
object: puddle, mouse pad, dishrag, lamppost, object, mop, shoe lace
