Ep. 22: Dave Landau and Mike Merryfield

Mike and Dave Pic

I had the distinct privilege to sit down with comedians Dave Landau and Mike Merryfield at the Irrelevant Studio. Dave and Mike have just begun their “Un-Civil Union Comedy Tour” together and both are at the top of their games. Dave and Mike shed light on the art of comedy, we listen to Bernie Mac and Dave discusses his recently completed movie. Special thanks to Dave for the time and big thanks to Mike for his continued help and insight. Mike and I have simulcasted this episode so you can hear this as well on Mike’s podcast “Irrelevant Radio” on iTunes. Catch the “Un-Civil Union Comedy Tour” of Dave and Mike near you! You will NEVER watch “Boyz in the Hood” without thinking of Dave and Mike again, due with major thanks to “Beth and Rose”. Thanks  for listening and spread the word!

Model 5890 Microwave 1980-2016

Panasonic Model 5890 Microwave passed away January 20, 2016 in Black River Falls, WI. Purchased by Ed Olson at a JC Penny in Appleton, WI in 1980; Model 5890 resided in Hortonville, WI until 2011 when it moved to Black River Falls, WI where it lived and worked every day until its passing. Originally acquired to heat the occasional leftover and cook boxed meals, Model 5890 loved the job of heating of family meals, steadfast preparation of hot dogs, the warming of bottles of 4 grandchildren and endless last minute snacks. Model 5890 rose to promise and fame by standing the test of time and duration over its life by having its lighting bulb replaced only twice in its 36 years of service. Always there when a need arose, Model 5890 had the stains to show the love of a fast, warm meal. Survived by its brother; a Roper Washing Machine, Model 5890 will be missed. A small service will be held at Eddie’s Garage in Black River Falls, WI on Saturday January 30th. In lieu of flowers the family has asked for you to warm a meal in your own personal microwave on January 30th in Memory of Model 5890.
