Here's the Episode Guide For Tommy's VIDCAST Show ...

OF ~



Welcome to

F ~

( " Hey ... that's ME ! " )

Finally!  A place where I can give y'all a glimpse of just what goes on inside this bowling ball I call my head, and if you're willing to take the trip, I throw my metaphorical doors wide open, drop the metaphorical drawbridge into place, and grant you passage across the metaphorical moat and access into my cranial castle.  You might want to bring a flashlight, or a gps unit, or a heaping helping of hutzpah, or something, because it tends to be kinda dark and frightful in there ... !

Woo hoo, i'm so ~excited~!

Let's crank this puppy up and get this show on the road, 'k?!?

"Click, click, clickety-CLICK ! !" exclaims your mouse, delightedly.

Oh, one more thing:  you can reach me at -

Why doncha write to me about something?

== EPISODE 1 ! ==  
And Awa-a-a-ay We GO!

     7-22-08.  My ~first show~!  YIPPEE-KIE-YAY!!  This new
          series should be a wild ride, so buckle it up!  I'm kicking
          off the vidcasts with my two most-recent originals.  Plus,
          you'll meet The Fingernail in "Kiss! My! Axe!"  Hey, if
          you brought some popcorn, now's the time to dig in!!
    - Bump On My Head
    - Trixie (Is In The House)
       ... both from "Genius At Play"  
[renamed "Genius At Trophy"]

                                                                                     length: 15:40

hello-o-o-o peoples!

up close and personal

== EPISODE 2 ! ==  
All-Sydney Edition

     7-29-08.  This second episode of my future-award-winning
          vidcast is a Super-Sydney Extravaganza . . . which has
          nothing to do with Australia, and everything to do with
          my great pal Syd.  Accordingly, you'll hear 2 Syd-songs
          from my catalog, plus you'll enjoy another installment of
          "Kiss! My! Axe!" where you'll meet The Flying Saucer.
    - If I Thanked God
    - For Rebecca's On My Mind
       ... both from "the return of Abstract Mickey"
                                                                                     length: 16:20


== EPISODE 3 ! ==  

     8-5-08.  Ah, yes  ...  love.  That sweet delight of innocent
          newness, of soulmates found.  It's enough to make the
          birdies twitter in their love nests.  But in my 3rd show, I
          speak not of love's Spring-y side, but of the Winter-y sting
          of being flattened by L'amour's size 16 stableboots ... to
          which I could only utter a mournful "(see episode title)."
    - She Rocked My World
    - Azziwuz
       ... both from "Pinecone Interruptus"
                                                                                     length: 15:19

heart-is-broke condition

peek-a-boo ...

== EPISODE 4 ! ==  
To The Enz Of The Earth

     8-12-08.  In this, the 4th episode, I wear my Lucky Lottery
          Shirt ... which, come to think of it, isn't really all that
          lucky, because I ain't won no lottery (I wonder if that's
          because I don't buy lottery tickets any more ... hmmm).
          You'll hear two songs from a golden age fondly recalled,
          and in "Kiss! My! Axe!", I introduce The Birdseye.
    - Ever On My Mind
    - Two Kids
       ... both from "The Other Side Of The Coin"
                                                                                     length: 15:26


== EPISODE 5 ! ==  
Digital Cowboy

     8-19-08.  Gittyup!  I finally let my inner cowboy out to 'play'
          (double meaning, there), and you'll plainly see I'm not a
          gun-totin' cowboy, but more of a guitar-totin' cowboy.
          Plus, a new feature makes its debut here at TASOTAK
          called "Air-Conditioner Mail" in which our first email is
          from Flarcherville AZ (a rowdy yee-haw to Romy J JJ !).
    - Don't Need Me Now (Doggie Died)
    - This Boy And This Girl (One Heart)
       ... both from "I'm Not A Cowboy...But I Play One On CD"
                                                                                     length: 16:04

howdy, pardner!

a knowing grin

== EPISODE 6 ! ==  

     8-26-08.  On this ~Very Personal Episode~ of TASOTAK, I
          feature the emotional and touching final poem by my dad,
          written to my mother upon grasping the realization that
          cancer would soon claim his life.  But first I kick butt w/ a
          take-no-prisoners signature song for a power-rock band.
          Wow ... I do it all, don't I.                     Yep.
    - Time For The Party
    - Our Time To Say Goodbye
       ... both from "Next Stop: Tommytown"
                                                                                     length: 16:18


== EPISODE 7 ! ==  

     9-2-08.  This lucky seventh episode cornucopias forth with
          the song that started it all {We Gotta Try, a protest song
          written during the Viet Nam war}, and the latest song on
          my shelf {Bite To Eat, which happened to me mere days
          ago}.  A nice pair of bookends if ever there was one.
    - Bite To Eat (Confusion Reigns)
... now on "the return of Abstract Mickey"

    - We Gotta Try (To Get It Together)
       ... from "Next Stop: Tommytown"
                                                                                     length: 15:37

== EPISODE 8 ! ==  
The Silver Tone

     9-9-08.  "Kiss! My! Axe!" bemusedly introduces you to The
          Silver Tone, which amounts to little more than a toy but
          sure is a gas to look at!  For the music, I showcase two
          songs from my second cd, the cover of which features my
          favorite picture of my favorite dog Max, airborne ... in a
          shot planned and taken by my pops, man of many hats.
    - Simple Promises I'm Too Shy To Make
    - Phlegm Boy
       ... both from "Max Airborne"
                                                                                     length: 15:24


== EPISODE 9 ! ==   
Episode 9 From Outer Space

     9-16-08.  What better garb to wear on this Outer Space
          episode than my bizarre-o Hess's Employee Shirt?  And
          what better guitar to play on this Outer Space episode
          than The Flying Saucer??  And what better cd to feature
          on this Outer Space episode than "What Planet Am I
          On?!"???  And ... what better time to CLICK TO IT !!!!
    - Planet V
    - Rails To Romance
       ... both from "What Planet Am I On?!"
                                                                                     length: 15:05

out of this world ... or at the very least:  out to lunch!

yikes ... i just sat on a popsicle !

== EPISODE 10 ! ==  
Key Rash

     9-23-08.  I briefly revisit some thoughts thunked during the
          ending of my first marriage, via two songs from that era           ... which brings to mind the age-old query:  if a marriage
          falls apart in the forest and no one is there to hear it,
          does it still make a noise?  "Hmph," I say enigmatically,
          slowly nodding, "someone is always there to hear it."
    - Stare Into The Sun
    - I'm A Couch Potato For You
       ... both from "62 Minutes Of Raw Therapy"
                                                                                     length: 15:15


== EPISODE 11a ! ==  
Happy Birthday, Ron

     9-30-08.  This episode enjoys the distinction of having not
          one ... not two ... but ~three~ Firsts!!  Let's review 'em,
          so we can notify the Guiness Book Of World Records:
    1) Tasotak's first GUEST (my nephew Ron);
    2) Tasotak's first LIVE REMOTE (my sister Sand's house);
    3) Tasotak's first TWO-PART EPISODE (Ron is in Part A,
    and his delightful daughters Rachel & Erica are in Part B).
          After Ron appeared on my show, he became an instant
          Internet Star, and now he won't give me the time of day!
                                                                                     length:   7:36

ronny playing to the camera ... beating me at my own game!


== EPISODE 11b ! ==  
Rachel And Erica

     9-30-08.  Well, after Ron got interviewed, these two li'l' gals,
          who just happen to be his daughters - my greatnieces -
          about went crazy to have me interview ~them~, so what
          could I do but ... interview them ..!.. and lemme tell ya,
          what fun it turned out to be!!  We had a nifty bunch of
          laughs and learned a few groovy tidbits along the way!!!
          I grinningly confess, though, that interviewing these two
          sharp-minded comedians was ~not~ as easy as it may
          seem ... they were one step ahead of me the whole time!
                                                                                     length: 15:46

two of the sweetest little girls there ever was!

== EPISODE 12 ! ==  
Tiffany Alvord Is Amazing!

     10-7-08.  Tonight I bypass my favorite topic (=ME!=) so I
          can champion a new passion of mine:
  Tiffany Alvord,           singer/songwriter.  I'm not gonna expound upon Tiffany
          nor show her picture until I play her songs for you - this
          way, you won't know anything about the songwriter, and
          you'll appraise the songs on their own merits.  Be ready
          to be impressed, folks ... this is a ~remarkable~ artist!
     "That Kiss"  &  "My Dream"  &  "I Wanted To Say"
          ... all 3 songs written by Tiffany Alvord

== EPISODE 13 ! ==  

     10-14-08.  Me ..?.. afraid of this 13th episode?  (that's what
          triskaidekaphobia is - fear of the number 13).  Pish posh
          and bah humbug!  I ~laugh~ in the face of superstition.
          If anything, I have triskaidekaMANIA.  So join me as I
          chortle fearlessly at #13 with some luck-related songs,
          and you'll finally meet The Confetti in "Kiss! My! Axe!"
    - Me Lucky Charm
    - Opportunity Knocks
       ... both from "Next Stop: Tommytown"

          ship in the fleet?"  (Hey, I told you not to mention that!)

          Davey Wow happens to fall on Election Day, hence the
          voting motif in the title.  Davey's harmonica prowess is

          he also plays one of his own Hawaiian-flavored tunes.

I Ames To Please

     11-11-08.  When one looks back over one's life, one never

          first love.  In this episode, you'll hear a few of the songs
          this high school sweetheart inspired - one from that era,
          and one written recently, when we re-established contact
          after many years.  Zowie, she still quickens my pulse!

One Rose

     11-25-08.  It was twenty years ago today ...
