Duo God's Pottery offer some very, very serious advice on battling some common vices.
On this week's Jordan, Jesse, Go!, a caller called in having seen a car done up in the colorful logo of a candy treat. This kind of car theming is a huge trend, particularly in the South. MaxFunster cabeh shared this great article about the movement (and about donks, an interrelated style) from Matt Besser's hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas. Fascinating stuff.
Here's what some past guests of The Sound are up to:
Matt Besser of the Upright Citizens Brigade joins Jesse and Jordan to discuss celebrating 4/20 in Santa Cruz, restaurant staff etiquette, inappropriate jokes and more.
I'm a judge in tonight's Literary Death Match here in Los Angeles. It's a long-running show in New York City where authors do crazy readings, "judges" (that's my role) judge them on completely arbitrary grounds, and we finally learn who wins writing. This show features Seth Greenland (author of The Bones and past TSOYA guest), among others. You can check out this piece in LAist for a clearer picture of the shenanigans planned. If you're in LA, come by and say hi!
Here are the whats, whens and wheres:
Where: The Mountain Bar, 473 Gin Ling Way, Los Angeles (map)
When: Doors open at 7:30 pm, show starts at 9:15 (sharp)

Count the past Jordan Jesse Go guests! Hint: there are TWO!
Above: Ciara's totally awesome video for her totally awesome dance single Gimme Dat. Another part of what Behold the Destroyer correctly identifies as her 7-year effort to be Janet Jackson, circa 1986. Which is totally the best Janet Jackson to be, and is just a great Janet Jackson, overall.
Below: Janet's 1989 video for Rhythm Nation, which is a jam of epic proportions, and is aped in the second half of Ciara's video above.
Jamie Kilstein and Allison Kilkenny of Citizen Radio join us and it gets political, then it gets less political, then we talk about headbutting someone to death.

Noel Murray and Scott Tobias of The AV Club share their picks from the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival. They discuss Sylvain Chomet's The Illusionist, which is animated from a script by Jacques Tati. Also: Darren Aronofsky's latest, Black Swan, which stars Natalie Portman as a ballerina struggling to find the passion to play the Black Swan in Swan Lake. In The Trip, director Michael Winterbottom supervises an impression-off between British comics Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon.
They also say they had a number of disappointments at the festival, including It's Kind of a Funny Story (despite a great turn from Zach Galifianakis) and Danny Boyle's latest, 127 Hours. They also didn't like the seriocomic Will Ferrel vehicle Everything Must Go.
