Don't let fear of technology keep you from participating in (or merely observing) Monday night's live Fireside Chat with my BFF, Mike Valentino, because it's so easy to be a part of it. Just go to this site, and that's pretty much all you have to do! The fun begins at 7PM Pacific Time (10PM EST) on Monday, September 15, 2008. We're both getting a little too big for our britches, and it's your duty to knock us down a notch or two (although you will fail miserably).
An important update: Bamboo Nation's regular features—Demonic Jukebox, Monologue Madness, Unsung Movies, Never Look Back (Except Now), and The Life and Times of Pork Chop—will, for the foreseeable future, be taken off our usual daily schedule. These features will continue to pop up, but on random days and with random frequency. Other that that, it's business as usual—"carnivalesque abandon," according to Mr. Mead's Pupu Platter—right here on Bamboo Nation.
