* King Toad has a new album; see Jamal for buying one.
1. "I Want to Scare You," by Bobby Evers (Bobby wears a scary clown mask, carries Katy onto stage, puts clown makeup on her, they leave. Creepy music plays.)
2. "Adventures in Alliteration," by Eric Landuyt (Hero/damsel-in-distress themes, swordfighting, and the threat of forced sex, though alliteration and assonance.)
3. "What's in my Pocket?" by Brown Butt (Aaron Galbraith taunts you about the contents of his pockets)
4. "Scary Halloween Spooktacular," by King Sophie (Sad ghost is fed marshmallows, but they fall right out.)
4.5 "The Return of Shelty Shakes Shelton," by Eli Wilkinson & Jon Shelton (Eli tickles Jonathan, then invites Katy from the audience to do the same, and later put her head on Jonathan's stomach, which horrifies her)
5. "300 is a Big Number," by Lenslie Krappenface and Strackzy Honez (Lenslie and Strackzy recount the events of the previous evening's orgiastic debauchery in varying degrees of detail to varying audiences)
6. "What Do Love & Baseball Have in Common? Both True & Fiction," by Danielle Santangelo Kovalil, Age 8 (From the vault, Danielle tells a story about her near-romance with Bo Jackson)
7. "His Stenographer for Years," by John Leigh (Aprille and friend Belky Gelky quote knowledgeable sources on topics of morality and child therapy)
7.5 "There's a train of Poop! Tim's True Tales" by Timm Sitzman (Tim's girlfriend accidentally called a lady Buh-jy-nuh when it was really By-ee-nuh)
8. "Little Billy's Halloween Pie," by Uncle Shelton (Jonathan tells children a scary, cannibalistic story, then offers to touch them)
9. "Old Poop Eye," by King Toad (musical performance from King Toad's new album Ion)
10. "My Halloween at the Beach," by Aprille Clarke (Skeleton Head and Wolfman want to get married)
11. "Hey Everybody, It's Bobby Evers's Birthday," by Katy Baggs (and he gets a thorough tickling out of it)
12. "Poo Train, Poo Train! Come on Ride the Poo Train," by Timm Sitzman (the story of a washed-up jazz musician who's cross-eyed and can only play with his nubby hand)
13. "Vampire Detective Frankenstein Party!" by Adam Hahn (Sherlock Holmes and Count Dracula meet at a party)
14. "It's Time for Lunch," by Bernice Wells Carlson (It's time for lunch. Everyone should go out into the hallway and enjoy it)
15. "Damn it, I Am Sexy No Matter What You Say and I'm gonna Prove It! Through Song and Dance," by Eli Wilkinson (Eli is interrupted by Patrick Ashcraft, who goes on to do a monologue about heartbreak, which he knows sounds cliché)
