Survivor: Abyss Island – The Dead Reonion Show Part Duh

The Tom B. Taker Show podcastAt long last, here it is. Finally, the wait is over. The Survivor: Abyss Island reunion show has arrived. The production team was been hard at work crunching the audio. We apologize it took a few extra days. It’s a dirty thankless job and many hours of blather were left on the cutting room floor. (This is the part where you thank me. This shit could have been longer.)

This is part two of the world famous audio interview.

Make the shark jump for the link.

You Ate What?

Reenactment: Your guru in action.

Whenever someone relates to me a harrowing experience, I strive to look interested and engage them in conversation. To feign interest I’ll often ask thought-provoking questions like, “Did you live?”

It can be a lively conversation booster.

Spoiler alert: In the story I’m about to share, I lived. Or, as Nethack might put it, “You survived that attempt on your life.”

But perhaps I’m relating things out of turn. It all started when I met my wife for lunch…

Failure to Survive
by Tom B. Taker

’Tis a peculiar fate, to live to see thine own torch snuffeth out.

The alliance had fallen.

Helplessly I watch whilst my cohorts fall in succession. The tribe hath spoken.
