Dodgeball Game 2

PlayPlay

Here is the footage from the last game Mat was allowed to play in. If you notice me acting like I should get kicked off the team, please let me know. We sum up from start to finish how having a little fun and making a video of guys and girls playing dodgeball can get you not only kicked off the dodgeball team, but banned from the boys and girls club. I did get my money back, so no hard feelings, although I am a little dissapointed I don’t get to help take my team to a flawless victory. They lost game 3 by the way, coincidence? Probably not. At least I got to end the season with a perfect record. Mcnally did a great job editing the footage, so if you have a minute, check out keithcourage.com and show him some love. Mcnally, you do good work sir. This video was filmed by Danni on Tuesday, February 16th 2010, and you can thank her for the close ups of guys this time… You know, to be fair. I think the score for this game was 11 to 5, but it could have been 10 to 6, depending on who you ask. Did I mention we won this game also? This is the last video in the Jamhole Dodgeball series, especially considering NO ONE is allowed to film in the boys and girls club anymore. You can probably thank us for that. Well, and the lovely lady who manages the place. So enjoy this on the go with your mobile media consumption device, or click the more link and check it out on youtube.

Ep 316: Innate Intelligence

Play

“If she was ugly, I guarantee she wouldn’t be alive right now.”

Another week down, another week ahead. I have absolutely nothing to say, it’s late Sunday and I’ve been shitting my brains out. I appreciate it when Danni buys a tub of ice cream, and I eat it in two days. Sometimes I think she does that on purpose. She likes it when I suffer, crapping my life essence into the toilet, swearing to never again eat ice cream. I always do though. I can’t help it. It’s my curse I suppose. Uncontrollably eating ice cream, and having an opinion on unproven idealogical concepts.

“If you’re abused at home, you can tell me.”

It was brought to my attention this morning that perhaps I am not an expert on the ancient healing art of chiropractic. Perhaps when I sat down to write the show notes, google was only returning the results for half of the story. Perhaps I was just in a hurry, and seeings how these are notes for a comedy talk show, perhaps no one would really care about my insignificant scribblings. I didn’t really plan on actual board certified, life saving, mystical healing chiropractors reading my silly little blog and taking offense at my lack of research. It would seem that before I dismiss something as a scam, I should take better care to find ALL of the evidence I can. Sometimes it just isn’t enough relying on your favorite board certified doctors and skeptics. Sometimes you have to get your evidence straight from the source. Again, if I thought I was going to be critiqued by someone in the field, I would have spent a little more time on it. Perhaps I should just stick to delivering water and leave the mystical woo debunking to the professionals. But you know I can’t help myself. SO…. I took another hour or so out of my day to do some more research on the matter of chiropractic subluxations. The funny thing is, the more I searched, the more it doesn’t look good for the chiropractors. Of course, this is all open to change if they ever come up with some conclusive evidence that states otherwise, but so far, every single piece of literature I came across basically said what I had initially written and linked to in the monday show notes. I’m sorry, there just isn’t any conclusive evidence that suggests this is a real thing. Kind of like god right? Anyways, You also have to understand, I have absolutely no stake in this at all. I am simply trying to find somewhat interesting things to write about three days a week, and this is just something I heard mentioned on another podcast by a very respectable doctor. I just so happened to notice that the town I live in has a lot of this “chiropractic healing” going on, so I figured it was fair game. So again, I present to you, my more in depth findings on chiropractic subluxations…

“Here’s a good bathroom that’s private, I’m gonna go jerk it.”

I am sick of seeing all these chiropractor offices open up in the valley here. It’s getting seriously out of control, and I feel like I need to address it. So I present to you, my thoughts on chiropractic and the scam that is subluxations. Have you ever been to a chiropractor? If not, I’m almost positive you at least know someone who has been to, or is seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis. Being a delivery guy, I go into quite a few of these offices, and the one thing I noticed that’s odd to me, is that they all have posters, or videos playing about subluxations. My spell check doesn’t even know what the fuck a subluxation is, which leads me to believe there might be some bullshit involved. It’s always a bad sign when I know I’ve spelled something right, yet my spell check insists that it has no idea what the fuck I just typed. Ok, so the quick run down from quackwatch on subluxations is as follows:

“Chiropractic theory is rooted in the notions of Daniel David Palmer, a grocer and “magnetic healer” who postulated that the basic cause of disease was interference with the body’s nerve supply. Approximately a hundred years ago, he concluded that “A subluxated vertebrae… is the cause of 95 percent of all diseases… The other five percent is caused by displaced joints other than those of the vertebral column.” He proclaimed that subluxations interfered with the body’s expression of “Innate Intelligence”—the “Soul, Spirit, or Spark of Life” that controlled the healing process. He proposed to remedy the gamut of disease by manipulating or “adjusting” the problem areas.”

“The pickle has won!”

Check this shit out. I had to work Saturday, Sunday was spent trying to help ease the eye strain for those of you who enjoy reading the show notes on the site. I changed some of the CSS, made things a little easier to find, and since I do it trial and error style, it took me most of the night to do. Not to mention working on some other projects with my brother, and trying to write a motherfucking rhyme or two every now and then, this is what you get for notes. I am slowly appreciating the fact that the Jamhole forums is on the ning network, and not made from phpbb, because that shit is a pain in the ass. Can we please just stick with one language? No, of course not, fuck me. So here I sit, one thirty on the clock, flashing at me like I’m some sort of idiot. Hopefully one day we’ll have the resources to be able to hire professional coders to code my shit for me, but until then, this is what you get. If you don’t like it, then maybe you should learn how to code, and take the steps to make this motherfucker shine. I’m delirious, horny, itchy, and boring, all at the same time. Oh yea, and I really want a ciggy, but for some strange reason, I can’t seem to take my eyes off this god forsaken screen. Like I’ve forgotten something. What could it be? If you find a problem with what I’ve done on the site, please email info@thejamhole.com or use that sweet little spam free form on the about us page. Also, I’m really digging astronomycast’s idea of having listeners send post cards, so we can get a better idea of where our audience is in the world. Like a quick little game of where’s waldo. You can do that straight to the po box, no problem, right now! So I’m trying to figure out a way to get to defcon, if you wanna party, and have some extra funds, check out the donate page. You should also probably check out the Jamhole 250 show, and the Book of Matthew. One is our first live audience show, the other is my first hip hop cd. Get them both, you dig? Also make sure you are a member of the forums. That way you know what’s going on, and we can count you. I like counting, as long as I’m not counting crows. Let’s end on a high note shall we?

Ep 312: Aim For the Tub

“The boy has to walk on his own.”

I don’t understand why the city here is having such a problem with the whole medical marijuana dispensary thing. They went ahead and imposed a 90 day moratorium on any medical marijuana dispensaries in Kalispell that might want to open their doors for business. One of the main arguments is against a dispensary opening up right by woodland park in the old Kay Bridal shop. The mayor of Kalispell, Tammi Fisher, says she thinks the Woodland Park location is a horrible location for a dispensary. So what you are saying mayor, is that having a medical marijuana dispensary by a park where children play is a horrible thing, yet right next store to the dispensary is a bar, and that’s just fine? That sounds good (sarcasm), lets lead by example and show our kids that alcohol, a drug that is legal, yet kills around 75,000 people a year and causes countless health problems is just fine, yet a plant that was made illegal for ridiculous reasons in the first place, that doesn’t have any deaths or adverse health affects attributed to it, is a bad thing? You are out of your fucking mind. You should be so lucky to have something like this bringing in jobs and supplying good weed to people that need it. The people have spoken, and the only reason you have imposed this moratorium, which embarrassedly passed 8 to 1 by the way, is so you can figure out how to get your grubby hands on some of that money they will bring in. How many ways can your little city council gang find to fuck us in the ass with no lube in the next 90 days? Why don’t you put a moratorium on opening up more churches? I think we’re well over our per capita quota for churches. I would like to say a huge thanks to Councilman Bob Hafferman who actually stood up for the rights of the people here in the city, and cast his vote saying, “I find nothing that mentions a medical marijuana business is violating any existing laws, I’m opposed to any action when a business is in violation of no laws.” Well said sir. The only violation I see here is the city, making it even harder for people to start up a new business, that’s trying to breath some life into a long dead economy. Let’s go ahead and keep on prescribing drugs that are more addictive than nicotine, creating junkies out of people who got hurt somehow, but let’s keep a lid on anyone trying to smoke some harmless weed to ease their pain and stimulate their appetite. All eight of you who voted for this moratorium should be ashamed of yourselves.

Ep 311: WEPback

“I just did the million dollar psychic challenge.”

I was personally very excited for this episode, because it is the first time my brother has been on mic. If you were at the live audience 250 show last September, you will have met him. It took a bit of calming talk, letting him know that microphones don’t work like cameras, in as his soul would not be sucked out and converted into mp3 format. Actually, that’s all it really took. See, rumors like that do hurt people. I understand that back in the day, when you killed a buffalo on a cold winter morning, sure it looked like the soul was escaping. But in the modern times we live in, we know that is simply not the case. We have come a long way with our intellectual capabilities in certain areas, yet in other areas, we are still sacrificing virgins and chasing ghosts. Did I mention I cracked my first WEP key? Damn straight… It was only a 64 bit key, and it was my router I hacked, but hey, you gotta start somewhere right? Also, we’ve been getting some great feedback on the Dodgeball Game 1 video, so I just wanted to thank Mcnally one more time, he is one hell of a video editor.

Dodgeball Game 1

PlayPlay

Well, here it is, a sport like no other. Dodgeball used to be my favorite gym class game back in grade school. Back then it was called Warball, but that makes sense considering it was a Lutheran school I went to. Everything is war with these people. Anyways, the Flathead Dodgeball Association has started a pretty damn cool thing here in the valley, and we’re going to try and make films of each game Tyler and myself play in. Mcnally did another amazing job editing footage we send him, so if you have a minute, check out keithcourage.com and show him some love. Mcnally, you do good work sir. This video was filmed by Danni on Tuesday, February 9th 2010, and you can thank her for the hot sexy close ups of chicks in little shorts bending over. I did. I forget what the score ended up being, but our team did win, so that’s pretty cool. We’re going to try and make a series out of this, so you can see us play each game in the season. We’ll see how that works out. After this, they might not let us film anymore… Just kidding, we will always film.  🙂 So enjoy this on the go with your mobile media device, or click the more link and check it out on youtube.

Ep 310: Tiny Tunes

“If I can flavor the pee, I’m in.”

Every now and then the medical marijuana debate will surface in the local newspapers here in the Flathead Valley. Montana was the 11th state to pass some type of medical marijuana legislation, with 62% of the votes. More than half of the people that showed up to vote that day had some good decent common sense. I would like to talk about the other 38% or so that still cling to the dying belief that if you smoke weed, you will rape and murder babies. I blame the years and years of negative propaganda back in the early days of prohibition. I would imagine these are the same people driving around town with McCain, Palin and Bush stickers still on their vehicles. Those stickers can be a bitch to get off. Anyways, one of the very annoying things these pot haters keep on doing, is lumping weed in with drugs like heroin, cocaine, meth, etc… I’m sorry, but there needs to be a major reclassification of this shit. If you think weed is like heroin, that’s the same as me thinking doctors on House or Scrubs could really get down on some surgical shit in real life, and not kill the person. It’s not the same thing. Plus, if you are going to run around spouting off that all drugs are the same, then toss alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, taurine, Tylenol, and aspirin into that bag while your at it. Those aren’t the same thing are they? Do you say that Lutherans are the same as Catholics which are the same as Protestants, which are the same as Muslims, which are the same as Baptists? I could do that all day. But no, you do not say that, although, if you think about it they are all kind of the same, or at least the ideas were all ripped off from the same ancient religions, but hey, nothing is original anymore.  The city and state stands to gain a nice little addition to their budgets if they do this right, while at the same time taking a little pressure off of the overpopulated prison system. Oh right, I forgot to mention, you might as well let everyone out of jail that’s in there for some silly marijuana charge. Unless of course, your goal is to create a sub population of crazy, blood thirsty soldiers for your crazy killer zombie army. Then just leave them in there, poke them with a stick once in a while, and feed them raw meat. That’s how you turn normal people into crazy blood thirsty zombie dogs.

Ep 309: Super Fart Spray

“Bigger chick, bigger dowry, that’s how this works.”

The people that populate this valley are some of the biggest hypocritical self righteous pretentious retard jerk off’s I have ever come into contact with. We probably have more churches per square mile than New York has Starbucks, and you would think that with a town full of such god fearing people, their perfect untainted morals would shine through such highly regarded character… But NAY it does fucking not! These people have their heads so far up Jesus Christ’s asshole, they are becoming the very same communion they are receiving. The sad thing is, these people are in the highest offices of power as far as this little valley goes, and they are sucking big infected church cock all day long. I would say the community is better, but the community is the congregation of these churches every Sunday, or at the very least, on major religious holidays. What can you do? If god was real, religious communities such as the one here in the Flathead Valley should be flourishing with awesome goodness and thriving with progress. God should be smiling down upon this town, bathing it and all it’s inhabitants in rays of pure unadulterated happiness. I see quite the opposite here. This town is a cesspool for meth and pill junkies, child molesters, theft, prostitution, fraud, embezzlement, etc… There is corruption running rampant in the airport management, the city bleeds more money than a female hemophiliac on the rag, the casinos are taking advantage of the depressed and lost just as much, if not more than the church is. There are just as many scum bag pay day loan places as there are trailer parks. Why aren’t these people good? Why isn’t life here perfect? Please tell me that our free will has destroyed the paradise god intended for us. I firmly believe the belief system these people hold so dear and true to their heart is what has made the valley the depressed dot on the map it is today. Let’s have a big round of applause for god! Let’s have an even bigger round of applause for all of you lost sheep who got suckered into believing this shit. Don’t feel too bad, I got tricked too, when I was a kid. The church has had thousands of years perfecting it’s illusion, plus you were probably indoctrinated as a child, so you never really had a chance. Granted, in every community like this, you do have good people, you just don’t see them very often because they are lost in the sea of shit that is the religious cult. Basically, you have been fooled into believing in god because someone in your life said if you don’t, you will burn in hell eternally. Sounds like you got fooled by the oldest trick in the book. Scare someone into doing what you want. Hey, if you don’t listen to The Jamhole, you will spontaneously combust. If you don’t donate to The Jamhole,  your heart will stop beating. You won’t know when, you won’t know where. Do you want your heart to stop beating? Do you want to spontaneously combust? I don’t either, so just donate some money and listen to The Jamhole, and everything will be ok.
