Stephanie files suit against her friend Sewit. They are both members of a Las Vegas community service group that often uses raffles for fundraising. Stephanie thinks members of their group should be prohibited from entering the raffles, but Sewit has no problem with it.

With Guest Bailiffs Dave Shumka and Graham Clark of Stop Podcasting Yourself!

EVIDENCE

SUBMITTED BY STEPHANIE:

“This is a photo of our most recent raffle items. Items included San Diego Comic Con exclusives/swag plus a signed photo of Flash Gordon star Sam Jones. He donated it to us at the Las Vegas convention we were holding the raffle at because he is a total sweetheart.”

Affidavit from Very Awesome Girls member Crystella:
"I believe members should not be able to enter our own raffles because it could cause others who enter to lose trust on our group. We know we are being fair but if someone in our group wins people may feel it's unfair and lose faith in our group."

SUBMITTED BY SEWIT:

Affidavit from Very Awesome Girls member Desiree:
"I'm pro members entering our own raffles because our raffles are always intended to help a needy cause in our community. Why not get as much help as you can get?

I understand that it may look bad for one of our own members to win the raffle, but I've been told the alternative is to enter in someone else's name. Isn't being deceitful to our supporters worse?

Also, then if I do win the raffle, I have to make sure none of the prizes are ever showing in the pics I post on social media, I can't live with this paranoia!"

To donate to any of the causes mentioned in this episode, here's the information:

Street Teens
Street Teens is a volunteer based, non-profit organization dedicated to assisting homeless, abandoned, and at risk youth, ages 12-21, in the Las Vegas Valley. Our primary goal is to meet the survival needs of our youth by providing basic necessities in a safe, compassionate environment. The Very Awesome Girls are currently collecting school supplies for their next meeting for Street Teens.

Palomacy (Pigeon Rescue)
Palomacy (a project of Community Initiatives) is a network of volunteers working together to save the lives of domestic, unreleasable pigeons and doves that would otherwise be killed in shelters for lack of adopters. Palomacy is Bay Area based but the founder, Elizabeth Young, is helping with the new Vegas based pigeon rescue, which is still applying for non-profit status. So donations go through Palomacy.

WERU Community Radio
Judge Hodgman has been recording most of the summer from WERU Community Radio with huge help from Joel Mann. WERU is a listener supported, non-commercial radio station serving Midcoast, Downeast and Central Maine. The station was recently struck by lightning and is in the process of repairing many radio station elements that were effected.

  • Our own Graham Clark, co-host of Stop Podcasting Yourself, has launched my favorite web series of 2012 to-date: “Graham Clark Wilderness Man”. This is must-see internet.
  • Eugene Mirman has announced that his first hour-long standup special, Eugene Mirman: An Evening of Comedy in a Fake Underground Laboratory will premiere on Comedy Central at midnight on Dec. 14th. Rumors are suggesting that it will include a theremin. If you’re in NYC, he’ll also be hosting a free simultaneous watching event / celebration at Bell House in Brooklyn.
  • The State Department recently invited party-rocker Andrew WK to perform at the US Embassy in Manama. He quickly announced on his own website that he would be a “cultural ambassador” who would unite the human race “with love and partying.” But, sadly, it was not to be. The State Department, shortly after reviewing his “entire body of work” rescinded the invitation. Andrew tweeted later that he believed the trip had been cancelled solely "because I'm too party."
  • Louis CK will release his fourth HBO special in early 2013. It will be filmed at one of the stops on his current tour. Good news for you folks without cable: he will eventually make it available as a $5 download from his website.

  • Your long wait is over: here is Brandon Bird’s T-mas Card for 2012. Fa la la la la, Fool!
  • Saddest comedy news of this holiday season: Wyatt Cenac is leaving the Daily Show. His last appearance will be on December 13th - the show’s last edition for this year.
  • Happiest news: Both Key and Peele and Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell have been renewed for another season.
  • Bonus news: Hodgman on both 30 Rock AND the Daily Show this evening. Stay in. Make popcorn.

Graham Clark Paints with His Beard - on Televison!

| 0 comments


Our own Graham Clark of Stop Podcasting Yourself is also an accomplished artist who creates charming paintings using his beard as a brush. The subject matter is lively, fun and diverse ranging from a portrait of Don Rickles to two robots playing leapfrog. He has painted and sold more then 50 pieces and donates all of the proceeds to charity.

That's all terrific, but, let's best honest: you've lost countless hours of sleep wondering how he does it, right? Now, finally, you can watch his beard in action!

Video bonus: Graham discusses his painterly technique with an attractive blonde lady wearing a v-neck garbage bag.

"Graham Clark: Beard Paintings" at Vancouver's Olio Festival

| 0 comments

On Thursday, September 22nd, the Little Mountain Gallery in Vancouver will host the opening reception for an exhibit of beard paintings created by our own Graham Clark of Stop Podcasting Yourself. What is a beard painting? Well, as the name suggests, it's a work created by the application of paint to canvass using facial hair. Although Graham has been creating paintings this way for some time, it's his first show exhibiting this methodology and the money from any painting sold will go to a charity of the purchaser's choice.

After the opening, the exhibit will run until September 27th. You can find all of the details, including the time and location, here.
