85 – Recording Session: Take Me to Church with Jimmy Asbell (Recorded 2/23/2017)

Let me tell you about Jim Asbell. Not only is Jim one of the best people I ever had the pleasure to work with, he saved my tookus more than once and helped me realize I was probably working in the wrong place, but he is also just a fantastic human being. What makes him fantastic? Well, he is one of the last people to have polio… wait, that doesn’t make him fantastic, that just makes him have polio…. Well, he is also dying from stage IV colon cancer! What the hell am I talking about? That doesn’t make him fantastic, that just makes me sad. Oh, I know what I meant to say: even though he has had hardship from the time he was very little, and got the rotten luck of getting cancer later in life, he approaches these things with more zest and gusto than I deal with someone at McDonalds getting my order wrong. Jim is so dedicated to living life to the fullest, and having other people do the same, he wrote an amazing book entitled “Live Well With Terminal Illness and Other Crappy Diseases” (buy a copy here: http://amzn.to/2miEt9t and all proceeds are donated to cancer research). Not only is it a good book to read if you are dying, it is a tremendous read for anyone who is feeling particularly stuck in this world. You have no idea how good you have it, but Jim does and let’s you know you are wasting it. Not only that, but he does amazing portraits of pets! (jimmy-asbell.pixels.com). Oh, we talk about all the things, and we also record a sketch which had my jaw on the floor… Jimmy knows how to party!

Also, please go buy his outstanding book here and help the fight against cancer! (All proceeds go towards fighting cancer. No, not the one in the White House, the second most deadly cancer.):
