“Later, he was to decide that Andrew’s life had been fractally weird. That is, you could take any small piece of it and examine it in detail and it, in and of itself, would turn out to be just as complicated and weird as the whole thing in its entirety.”
― Neal Stephenson, Cryptonomicon

Steve is a very funny and nice Twitterer and is pals with all the cool people online. I love a good name sake on the podcast even if he spells it incorrectly.

Steve’s Story: Never Trust an Optimistic Mountaineer
My friend Glenn is a super positive person, but when I go climbing with him, when things go wrong, his never give up attitude leads us to trouble, like the first time, when we went climbing at Smith Rock State Park.

FOTS 021 @CaptainKalvis comedy or death

Friends of the Show Episode 21 with Kellen Schneider AKA @CaptainKalvis!

“If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.” – Mark Twain

Kellen Schneider is a cool young gentleman from Iowa, also online who has a lot of funny to provide, he gives it to us in tweets, in longer form writing on Funny or Die and in live improv performances around town. He will be moving to LA later this year to pursue a dream of making comedy, and I for one am excited and wish him the best of luck in this new chapter of his life, the short hair period.
