Before Daylight Savings ended, there was a whole lotta trouble, starting with Samantha Irby, who paints Herman Cain as the lady killer he is. Cayne Collier becomes a gastroenterologist who educates us on fecal transplants (a real thing!). Chad the Bird wonders whether those wearing Guy Fawkes masks really know what they mean. With music from Diego Sol and the Metronomes, specifically, an excellent cover an excellent Prince song. And as usual, if you can hear us, this magazine is LIVE.
