Sarah Tiana and I were talking at The Comedy Store one evening. During our conversation, I came to realize that in my head, I had mistakenly classified her as a sexual “good girl.” I guess I’ve always known her as girlfriend material. So we met back there a couple nights later to discuss how she came into her own, how she operates, and how she likes having become this sexual butterfly.

Stuff About Sarah
Sarah is at the Comedy Store all the time when she’s not on the road entertaining soldiers or at hotels looking for dick. Check her out when you can.
This is the cover of Sarah’s album, Comoddity, that got us talking about all this in the first place.
Activia commercial with Matt Knost (commissioner of the Comedians Basketball League). Do you think they asked Matt and Sarah to act retarded so middle aged women can relate to them?
This song was MASSIVE when I was little. None of us could quite believe that they were getting away with talking about sex so readily and openly. Later, women’s studies majors really adopted Salt & Pepa as idols because of their frankness.
I want your sex – This was another really racy song. I was going to use it and then at the last minute I didn’t but I thought I’d add the video anyway because it’s full of hot people. I’m realizing now that the ’80s was ripe with overt sexual innuendo. Lyrics probably started getting obvious with the rise of sexual liberation and because of coke heads being too gacked up to analyze anything below the surface.
Bright Eyes is rad. Bright Eyes are rad? I don’t know. But I know rad, and this is it.
They Might Be Giants. Godfathers of dork rock.
Istanbul – Animaniacs – This was actually the first place I heard this song, so I’ll include this version, too. I thought they made the song up for this sketch. Animaniacs was the shit. I think it was probably the first time I realized that cartoons can be for adults, too.
Istanbul – The Four Lads – This is one of the reasons I like including music in this podcast. I had no idea this song was a cover. And the original has a cool tone to it that I kind of like.
Istanbul Craig Ferguson – Fuck it. It’s a cool video
