 There were a couple TV commercials for Shame-Based Man. (There was actually one; the others were edited down parts of the first.)
 There was a promo CD for Shame-Based Man entitled "Answering Machine & More Twisted Interludes." It's rundown is 1) answering machine, 2) doors, 3) daves i know, 4) grade 8, 5) heroin pig, 6) acid radio, 7) salt lumbar, 8) play our song. Salt Lumbar is the "radio" intro to Our Love and Play Our Song is the "radio" intro to Daves I Know. The songs are identical to the SBM releases except Doors has "fuckin'" bleeped. The disc is the same as the SBM one, except red. The front cover is an alternate picture of Bruce with the big check. The back is the floating Bruce pic.
 "Stalking" was a Bruce short film for Saturday Night Live in late 1994, with Janeane Garofalo as the woman. "Eraserhead" was a 1995 Bruce short SNL film; it was entitled "Vacation." It only ran on SNL as a segment in a rerun. (It also ran as part of Bruce's "50 Years in Show Business" MuchMusic special.)
 "Daves I Know" appeared on the Kids in the Hall Show during the first season and "That's America" during the second.
 See Liner Notes. Bob Wiseman was part of Blue Rodeo. Don Kerr has been all over over the Toronto music scene, including part of Ron Sexsmith's band; he's currently the drummer for the Rheostatics. Tamara Gorski is the woman who appears in the Kathie/Cathy skit as the "new girl" ("Lezbe friends.") Brian, Reid, and Don are, of course, Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet.
 Bruce is not a Doors fan.
