Best Podcasts of 2019 (Must Listen)

Hello all fans,

The best podcast I have discovered without a doubt is the I HAD AN IDEA Podcast.  It is these two guys discussing funny business ideas.  It is super clever and really inspiring.

 

you can find the podcast on Audioboom as well as apple music and spotify.    They cover cool topics like “What if there was a support line for your pizza?” or “Should old people make money when they are in a Senior Home?”

It is a real gem and I feel this podcast is really on the rise!

Also, I do recommend This American Life and the James Altucher Podcast.

Thank you for all of your support.

Pokemon Red Weak Team (Completed) (Chansey, Poliwrath, BeeDrill)

My challenge has been completed. On June 2nd I was able to defeat the Elite four and my rival (named Blue). It was my PIGEOT that dealt the final blow to his level 65 Venusaur.

My team before I made the attempt was:

LEVEL 62 GYRADOS

LEVEL 42 POLIWRATH

LEVEL 37 CHANSEY

LEVEL 51 PIDGEOT

LEVEL 37 OMANYTE

LEVEL 28 BEE DRILL

 

(I think it was a guy online or maybe on Quora who suggested this weak team).  Nobody on my team knew how to use: Earthquake, Thunderbolt, Ice Beam, Blizzard, or any Psychic moves.  Also no TRI ATTACK and NO  rock slide.   My team really did not have that much HITTING POWER.

My main pokemon were the GYRADOS and the PIDGEOT! They were able to deal damage.  Once I evolved my Poliwhirl into POLIWRATH then he became more useful as well.    BEE DRILL was kind of useless most of the game.  And Chansey really is not that great.

I used GYRADOS to beat most of the Elite Four.  it knew Hyper Beam which I upped to 7 PP.     Lorelei has a tricky team if you don’t have  a good electric pokemon, she was a tough first hurdle.   Fighting Bruno was pretty easy, just need water moves and flying moves.

Agatha was tough because her team used lots of CONFUSING moves so that was annoying.  LUCKILY, in this game only NORMAL type moves don’t hit ghosts, so I could still use fighting type moves and flying type moves and bug moves to hit them.  So I actually did use BEE DRILL and Chansey and Pidgeot to beat her team.

LANCE was super easy, I used my Poliwrath on his dragons and they would not attack they only wanted to use AGILITY.   And then his D R A G O N I T E was easy to kill I could use Poliwrath and BEE DRILL.  (THE AI in Gen 1 is pretty stupid in general).

and my rival was not that difficult.  I was able to one shot his ALAKAZAM by having my Gryados use BITE. so that was great.

HONESTLY, the first one, Lorelei, was the toughest because they had good stats and I did not have any super effective moves to hit with.

It was a grind for sure but I am glad I could complete the challenge (which I placed on myself).

I hope the good people of the world will continue to enjoy playing pokemon, especially Gen 1 and Gen 2 games (they are my favorites).

Fathers and Sons

A tale by DJ ROBO BISCUIT 

I did not know my father growing up, but I did know he was a bad man.  It was tough growing up without my dad around.  And my mom was loving but also full of peculiarities.   Somedays she loved me and somedays she seemed to despise me.  But I don’t blame her.   She is one of many moms put in that strange predicament.  She was a warrior.  But you could still see her trauma.

In 2018, there were 4 million births; there were 90,000 rapes; and 4,000 reported babies caused by rape.   Those numbers changed greatly.  Here in the year 2035 we have 5 million births, 100,000 rapes and 50,000 babies born from rape.  Ever since they banned the abortions, the numbers have been going up.

And that is me, a “rape baby.”  It happened one night, in a dark alley, my dad got her.  She has told me that she had wished could abort but it was illegal.  But she also told me she was glad she had me.  Sometimes it is confusing!  And she would always mention the “Good ol’ days” when women were allowed to abort.

Tuesday nights I have my RBA meetings.  Rape Baby Anonymous.  Many of the guys and girls there are my age.  We were part of the “first wave” of rape babies.  We sit around and stare at each other.  We talk about it.   What it is like to not know our fathers, but of course to know he was a rapist.  Many of our moms are in rough shape, they are tough but many of them still have some trauma from the rape.  None of us know our dads.

But one day I decided to do something about it.   It was time for a DNA test.  Believe it or not, the government has initiatives to help kids find their fathers.

The results came back, and guess what?  I have 2 brothers!   They live in different states but it’s amazing to know I am not an only child.  One of them lives in New York City and the other lives in Orlando.  I guess dad was able to move around huh?

And of course, the results showed me my dad: Anthony Pelbis.    It’s a weird last name, Pelbis.   And my dad is locked up, but not for rape.  Looks like he was locked up for Burglary.  I guess good ol’ dad was a career criminal.   He was in prison only one state away.  I asked Mom, but she didn’t want to see him.

I drove to the prison.  I wanted to meet my father.

I sit down in front of the glass and grab the phone.  He is not very tall but he is strong.  He has a big nose and he has a large scar across his cheek which is very distinctive.   I know he is not a good guy but I can’t help but notice I do look like him.

“Well, I heard you were my son?”

“Hello Anthony, that is right.”

“Yeah, you don’t have to call me Dad or anything.  Unless you want to of course.  What’s your name?”

“My name is Albert.”

“Albert huh?  That is a fine name.   You know, you do kind of look like me!”

“How much do you know Anthony?”

“Oh about what?”

“About me and about mom?  And about your family?”

“Well, I know have at least one son, yourself.  And I don’t really have much family except for my brother.”

“Well actually Anthony, there are more of me.”

Anthony’s eyes widened.

“Yeah Dad, you are actually a father of three.  I have 2 other brothers.”

“Woah. That is crazy!”

“I guess you were a busy man many years ago.”

“You know Albert we all make mistakes, and now I am locked up.”

“Can you tell me anything about Mom?  From when she was younger.”

” You know son, I really can’t say much.  Me and your mom were intimate only one time and it was not on her terms.”

Descent into Madness (Rough Draft)

April 15th 

I will soon start my new project.  I have decided to keep a journal to track developments on this.  My boss has tasked me with doing a piece on a nearby cult.  We really know very little about them.  There are rumors that previous journalists have failed to learn anything.  I find it very odd.

April 18th

I have tracked down what I think is their headquarters.  I have been asking around town about where to find these cultists.  The people are very cagey about telling me details.  An old man tipped me off to their location but he told me to “Go at my own peril.”

I have talked to Cassandra some.  She is worried about the project. I told her not to worry, these cult people might be kind of misguided but they are not dangerous.  I will still be careful.

April 19th

People in the area have heard rumors.  They say people disappear at this place.  And sometimes people don’t leave the compound for days on end. A local told me the cultists were called “The Bleeding Hearts.”  He said it was just a name he had heard from a different guy.

The Land of Longfellow

The reporter road into town

Unsure of what he’d find

The town was not too big

Not too big for any mind

He saw the folks

They waved

Oh, they seem nice

Many people around would not think twice.

He was there to do his report

Because there had been word getting around

Of strange and bizarre things

Happening in this town

The word came in from anonymous sources

People who were scared

Of the kids of this land

Who often dissappeared

The Reporter left his car

And walked the town on foot

A car came driving up and screeched to a halt

The couple rolled down their window to relay the news

“You need to get out, it’s time to go.”

What do you mean why should I leave?

“This is not a normal place, it’s not safe to stay.”

Where is the danger in this town?

“We are leaving.

You should not stay here.

This is the Land of Longfellow and he will come for you.”

And after those last words, the couple rolled up their window and drove away.

The reporter walked on.

Obvious Child and Landline, Interesting Jenny Slate movies

“Obvious Child” and “Landline” are both interesting human films starring Jenny Slate.   They both have to do with an adult woman trying to deal with real life adult problems.   Obvious Child is funnier than Landline.  Landline is more like a drama and Obvious Child is a romantic comedy.   Both films are sincere and earnest.  I recommend Obvious Child over Landline as it is more entertaining.   BUT, if you like films that are about people trying to deal with their problems and you kind of like hipster-y women then Landline might be more entertaining.

Some have called Landline “Blase” whatever that means!     The two films are well-directed and are interesting enough to have you watch all the way through and you also don’t really know what it going to happen!

If you are a fan of Jenny Slate and you just wish you could see her in the movies then these are two very entertaining films.

THANKS!
