  • Chris: Thank you so much for having this episode! I love that you didn’t sweep it under the rug and called out exclusionary thinking. Done with sass and strength and compassion. Thank you for rocking the boat.
  • James Butterfield: Hey guys, just ordered my COL shirt!  And just to make Jeff happy, I also bought a mug!
  • J-Mo:
    • 1.  I’m glad you like my 12 inch vinyl singles from Janet Jackson and Whitney Houston!  I have another wall devoted to Jody Watley, Patti LaBelle, Madonna and Michael Jackson.
    • 2.  Sorry about the scoutmaster socks and the sneakers, that’s just something I like, one of my kinks is the BSA uniform (as you’ve previously mentioned, thank you again, BTW, THAT full video is available on the aforementioned xtube)
    • 3.  Gary, I’m glad I’ve managed to get back in your good graces, my apologies for anything that might have put you off previously…  🙂

  • Re: COL437: Here’s something to get your day started, Jack Radcliff in #ASCIIART.  Yesterday on #COL we did an episode (COL437: Old School Bears Online) of what it was like being online as a bear when the internet was still in it’s adolescence. The topic of printing out images was brought up by our guest host, Hadrian McQuaig, and #ASCII code became a humorous point to the topic. So I created an ASCII art of Jack Radcliffe.
    • Tony Bossaller  And for those with an iPhone, check out RealWorldAscii. It’s a camera app that uses Ascii Art. (iOS 10 and before. Not a 64-bit app unfortunately.) I used to have a plugin for Quicktime that would output everything in Ascii Art.
    • Eric D Glauner  back in 1989 I’d have been so hot right now.
