Good evening friends and welcome to the Wednesday night edition of the Graveyard Shift. Tonight’s topic of discussion is distractions.....hang on what we’re we talking about? I had 12 other tabs open and was alternating between my Torchlight build and YuGiOh Abridged videos on YouTube.


I kid of course. I don’t give a fuck about my Torchlight build, I have literally been picking skills blind and face rolling that game. But my point is solid, if not a little bit susceptible to swaying in the wind. That is, we all get distracted. Even I, the illustrious PartyBusDriver find my mind wandering from place to place when I am trying to get work done. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sat down at my desk with the intention of getting good productive work done, like actually making another Patch Notes article, or continuing my Warcraft lore series. But before I know it, i’m checking my bank website, then reading some baseball news and checking out wrestling videos. Suddenly next you know...

For the record, I am not a talking horse. I also have no idea what this is from but it’s wonderful and I need it. Anyway, I think we can all understand this. I’m sure we’ve all been distracted from time to time when trying to get stuff done, be it for fun or profit. So that’s the question for tonight. Do you get distracted easily or without effort?

Bonus question, what sort of stuff distracts you? Bonus BONUS questions because i’m super generous, i have the best generosity, it’s yugge. Are YOU the distractor? We all have or had that one friend who wants to get burgers or play video games or buy heroin....what? Anyway they always want to do it with you right when you are trying to be a good productive citizen. So are you that friend?


Of course since this is the anarchy run chaos of TAY where this man is in charge...


feel free to talk about whatever you want to talk about. Just please include me, I feel lonely sometimes.

Tonight’s music is from one of my favorite bands when I was a wee little CartDriver, long before I graduated to buses. Enjoy the soothing tunes of Mr. John Pooper and Blues Traveler.


Run Around.
