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. Remember to rate the videos and pass them around to your friends.

Ep 316: Innate Intelligence

“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

Play

“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.
