Ep 319: Old Grumpy Men

“There is no god, eat shit.”

With all the messed up shit happening in the world today, I’m very pleased you all find the time to take an hour or two out of your busy schedule to come listen and laugh with us three days a week. Back when I first started this podcast, I had no idea it would become such a prominent part of my life. Some people do shows as a hobby, while others incorporate it into their lives, so much in fact, that it becomes an integral part of the day to day grind. I was talking with a friend of mine the other day, and he asked me how I manage to keep sane after reading all the books I read, and realizing how seriously fucked up the world we live in is. I told him first of all, I’m not that sane, I just hide it very well, and second of all, it helps tremendously having an outlet like the Jamhole podcast. I feel bad for people who realize how corrupt and fucked up things are, but have no platform to let it all out. Honestly, my head would explode if I couldn’t write or speak to you all like I do on this show. There are a lot of people out there who think the same way I do, and I’m amazed they don’t kill people more often. Everything about the world as it is today is trying to take advantage of people who are a little worse off than they are. You have churches trying to indoctrinate children before they are old enough to know what religion is. You have homeopathic con artists trying to get you and your whole family on a strict regiment of bullshit sugar pills, making you think that you are making your body more healthy, when in reality, the body was doing just fine on it’s own, before you shelled out hundreds of dollars for a placebo effect. You have chiropractors dreaming up new ways to keep you coming back to them, preaching the subluxation idea. Would you let a chiropractor pop your baby’s back? Let’s get real here. I mean seriously? You have the government who we put there to help us and protect us, trying to fuck us out of anything and everything they can, meanwhile other countries’ governments are trying to do the same exact thing. Who can you trust? I firmly believe that if we would all stop trying to fuck each other over, and started working together, we would be a lot further down the evolutionary path than we are right now. Hell, sometimes it might seem like we’re actually moving backwards. Which is funny to me, because everyone is trying their hardest to get as much money and power as they can for themselves, they fail to realize the big picture. It’s a very counterproductive way to live your life, unless of course, you were born into riches, then it probably doesn’t matter much. You have no idea what it’s like to have to work for everything you have. You have no clue what it feels like not knowing where your next meal is going to come from. Granted, I don’t live like that either, but I’m living paycheck to paycheck just like the majority of you are doing. I can appreciate everything I’ve created, because it wasn’t just handed to me. I worked my fucking ass off to get where I am today, and then I take a step back to take it all in, and I realize that I’m really not doing that great. I mean again, not in the great scheme of things at least. But try as we might, we make it day after day, week after week, month after month, and when it’s all said and done, we return to the dirt. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, or so they say.
