Ep 557: Serious Penalties

“You can’t use legislation to save a dying business model.”

the jamhole, something fishy.

I just got back from our good friend Adam’s place, and I have to say something I saw there changed my life. So check this out, and I’m sure this is probably most obvious to those of you who do this, but he has these fairly large salt water fish tanks. Inside each is a whole Adam sustained, vibrantly colorful ecosystem. It’s alive! Everything in there is alive, and for the most part lives day to day just doing it’s thing, completely unaware of the world around it, the world outside of the fish tank. What really blows my mind is that each of these creatures have their own mannerisms and personalities. It was really weird to watch. I shrunk myself down in my mind and started walking around inside the fish tank. There were creatures in there I’ve never seen or heard of before. Cool looking starfish that looked like an octopus and walked around like an alien. I don’t know, I’m sure a lot of you are reading this like duh Mat, fish are cool and that’s why people have them. From what Adam said, it’s quite a bit of work to take care of them all, but for the pure relaxing satisfaction of being able to sit around and watch life in progress interact with itself and the most basic level, is really something cool to behold. If I had lots of money, I would totally have a room with a circular type couch in the middle, and around the couch I would have a giant salt water fish tank. I would go to that room to be completely zen, smoke pot and write. Or eat mushrooms and stare at the fish. Anyway, thanks for letting me stare at your fish like a child. It was a very eye opening experience. If you want to see all the pics I took, check out my Google+. Here’s some notes!

“No you don’t, you live in this online fake reality.”

Sopa Bad internet good

This is how you change the damn world, one mind at a time. Please keep an eye on this and pay attention. Pay attention like your life depends on it. Now press play and follow along. This is a comedy show, but sometimes we need to be serious with you. This is one of those times. We discuss a lot of really important topics in this episode. Of course, most of those topics get made the fool, because let’s face it, if you can’t laugh at the sad kitten moments in life, how do you ever expect to survive? Evolve or die right? I mean really, if the fool made the topic, it seems only poetic.

We saw some history in the making this past week, and it was very inspiring. I hope this inspires a generation or two to get off their asses, turn the video games off, and start looking around at what you can do in life to make this world a little better. Because at the rate things are going, those who have had control of the planet for the last few decades, have, to put it bluntly, fucked some serious shit up. But think about it, what do they care? They are going to be dead within the next decade, so they don’t give a shit. It’s our problem. It’s your problem. It’s my problem. I really think if we can look at educating the younger generations and instill in them this deep seeded idea of urgent unity, we can eventually turn things around. No body said it would be easy, but it’s something that must be done. We must no longer allow greed and corruption the power to shape our government and bias decisions that affect all of us. This whole system is outdated and needs to be upgraded, or built once again from the ground up.

Ep 279: Overeaters Anonymous

“You got so upset because I said you had a small dick.”

Ok, so I got an early press copy of the new Snoop Dogg album entitled “Malice N Wonderland” because obviously we are press, and I just have to say, I don’t understand anymore. The intro, and every single song has a reference to jerkin. Is this some sort of new term the white man doesn’t understand? Like skeet skeet was for them in the 90s, the 00’s are going to be all about jerkin. I thought I used to know what jerkin was, you know, dick in hand, something sexy (or humiliating) on the computer screen, sitting in your desk chair with a paper towel next to you. That was jerkin, but all this jerkin talk on this new album, I just don’t get it. Also, if it hasn’t been said already, let me just throw this out there right now. I think you should retire Snoop. Not because you are getting old or anything like that, but because I don’t believe you have anything else to say that’s worth hearing. It’s ok Snoop, you’ve done a lot for the game, but you are fast approaching the point where if you continue to keep making albums, you will start to negatively effect hip hop. We will all L B C ya later… You can still make beats and produce, just please stop rapping. The game has been really good to you, don’t make the same mistake hundreds before you have made. Get out while the gettin is good.
