Album Review
Reviewed 2003-04-17
Stories told by a droll, minimally animated Minnesotan. The stories are personal and often touching but not bathos-drenched. Note, this is not a comedy recording but there are some traces of humor, as there is bound to be in any well-told real-life tale.

1. Kling crashes his motorbike, gets doped in the hospital, and gets metaphysical - interestingly rationalizing his own storytelling
2. Kling buys a classmate's artwork, sells some art himself, then posits a paid-for showing of a classmate's scar as performance art
3. Demolition derby day causes Kling's mom to bemoan the fate of her old car, while Kling gives a true taste of a Midwestern ritual
4. Fishing story with Wonderlure(tm) as amulet
5. Story of being a youthful baseball hitter who wasn't permitted to swing at pitches mutates into an inspiring tale of Do-It-Yourself ethos
6. Tales of home and grandma's cooking of pigs
7. Kling runs a marathon and describes the highs and the lows of such
8. Tale of the colorful uncle who smokes the best BBQ
