Almond clearly likes to be a contrarian, but he isnt afraid to poke fun at himself in the process: He openly professes his love for the metal band Tesla and his addiction to reality television. (Hes also brutally candid about his past sexual exploits.) Love him or hate him, at least hes thought about his diatribes before subjecting us to them. 7:30 p.m. 2421 Bissonnet.
