The “Pumpkin Spice” Episode of Cave-In Is Up

I was going to call it “my” episode of Cave-In, but when I think about it, I’m not sure I want to claim the whole thing. My bit starts at six minutes in.

So, some observations: 

  • Calling in and talking to Weldon was actually a lot more fun than watching/listening to myself talk to Weldon. 
  • After three days, I only remembered about 25% of what I said to him, if that. I guess I was just really in the moment. 
  • I’ve often heard puppeteers say that they feel less inhibited performing puppet characters, but I was surprised to find out that the opposite is also true. Obviously I’ve met Steve, but I don’t know him THAT well, and having admired him from a distance for so long, there are things that I would feel awkward talking to him about, yet I think I would feel more comfortable saying them to Weldon. 
  • Weldon speaks the truth about pumpkin spice. I’m glad someone finally decided to stand up and tell it like it is. 
  • You know, I knew I had a habit of nervous giggling, but boy, I sure do giggle a lot when I’m nervous.

I haven’t watched the whole thing again yet because I have other things to do, but it does appear to have been edited a little, which is good. Thank you, Weldon (and Steve)!

For the record, I want to say that I do like weddings. There is, however, a tiny portion of me that feels bitter and resentful about other people’s happiness, so I magnified that for comedic purposes.
