My Vid of Paul Thomas at Chicago Underground Comedy Jan 20 2009

Paul Thomas asks, why doesn't anyone sing like the screaming death metal singers of yesteryear anymore? And why did it take Paul so long to figure out that his voice wasn't going to just one day go from squeaky pre-teen to wailing high priest of metal? Why do so many people sing so different than they speak - Dave Matthews doesn't talk as weird as he sings, and Ozzy Osbourne doesn't order toast by screaming like a banshee.

It's too bad people love (and overuse the phrase) "born and raised" when talking about where they're from, because Paul can only yell that he was "RAISED" in Wisconsin. Paul's also a happily married dude who has been profoundly changed by marriage - for example, he never thought he'd be the kind of guy who would say "that oven mitt is too rustic." Also, naming a star after your loved one is romantic, but did an ancient space civilization really need to die to appease their sun god Norma Lipke?
