Bobby Pickles' Podcast™️ (general)

This week on Episode 67 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #12), Bob Noxious interviews New Orleans punk rock darlings, Pears, and Bobby Pickles interviews Cock Sparrer (Pronounced: SPERRA in American) prior to their first NYC show in 15 years. Fresh off a one week hiatus, the two Bobs don’t miss a beat with two interesting conversations, plus Bobby makes a total ass out of himself by mispronouncing the band’s name consistently throughout their entire exchange - watch the Full Video HERE.

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER:

Bob admits to being a true consumer, planning to visit at least three record stores on Saturday’s coveted Record Store Day. Bobby has an iPhone with plenty of MP3s at his grubby little fingertips. Bob collects punk records that he doesn’t listen to and Bobby has old opera records, which belonged to his grandfather.

News of two untimely deaths in the punk rock world inspires Bob to start yet another punk rock death pool. Bobby bets on Cock Sparrer because they’re so bloody old, then Bob bets on Pears, so he can also bet on the band he interviewed this week.

Wrapped in full USA colors, Bob declares that Pears has the most awesome tour van ever! The brash complement quickly devolves to talk of farts, feet and gas milage. From their humble beginnings to their affiliation with Off With Their Heads, Pears just may be “the last great hope of punk rock” but Bob doubts that seriously.

Bobby gets schooled by Cock Sparrer on the actual pronunciation of their name, then continues to butcher it. Bobby displays not a hint of becoming a "Proper Cockney Hooligan" anytime soon. Bobby also mispronounces the last name of lead singer Colin McFaull. All of this with a bachelor’s degree in English from The University of Florida. Bobby openly admits his love of Bud Light to two right Englishmen who enjoy drinking beers from all across God's green globe. 

Bobby shares a tale of meeting Out Of Order lead singer Scott Maracle at the Cock Sparrer show - then premiers a new Out Of Order track without the band’s expressed permission. Bob announces that any band interested in getting their music played on DSR should email him, to mirror the success of Colombian skate punk band 69 Enfermos.

This week on Episode 66 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #11), The Bobs interview South Central Los Angeles-based comedy punk rock band Tartar Control - a three-piece comprised of two Mormon missionaries and a robot. Bob and Bobby host a cordial discussion with Sean (Guitar/Angelic Singing), Robert (Screaming) and Robot (Bass/Drums) about the origin of their band and humanity alike, their insanely hilarious YouTube videos, and their new record, “We Forgive You”, which drops on April 6th.  

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER:

Bobby admits to being a “pro wrestling dork” as a child growing up in a region chock-full of household wrestling names. Bobby recalls watching the 90’s romance classic, Sleepless In Seattle, in the same movie theatre as Hulk Hogan.

Bobby teaches Bob a new word: Sycophant. Bob makes generalizations about Canadians, then references Avril Lavigne and her useless husbands.

Bobby attempts to convert Tartar Control to Scientology, arguing that robots and aliens go hand-in-hand. Bob compares Mormon uniforms to the garb painters traditionally wear, then humblebrags about recently meeting Andrew WK. Sean and Robert discuss the challenges of traveling with a robot, sharing one of their fun experiences with the TSA.

Bob disrespects the memory of both Jim Morrison and Joey Ramone. Bobby mentions his “Lizard King” tattoo. Then, Bob reveals to the world that Bobby Pickles began his rise to prominence in 2013 when he appeared on the TLC reality series “America’s Worst Tattoos”.

Bob concedes to being a “bad father” for allowing his children to watch Tartar Control’s pilot episode. The band mentions noticing more and more “multi-generational punk rock families” at their concerts, acknowledging that the presence of children is “never not awkward” (intentional double-negative). NOTE: Tartar Control is NOT for children.

Bob discloses his shaving habits, while Sean and Robert share a few tips about oral hygiene. Bobby grills Sean about his “Open Me” tuning and the rhythm section’s (Robot’s) BPM. Then Sean, Robert and Robot sing some acapella.  

Robot voices his displeasure with Bob Noxious, repeatedly insulting him. Bob feels he and Robot should get along better given their shared technologically advanced natures. Bobby compares Robot to a dog sensing danger. Taking the high road, Bob invites the band to Florida, promising a safe haven for Robot to recharge, if they someday decide to take him up on his gracious offer.

THIS WEEK’S HEADLINES
Some of the topics reported herein, include, but are not limited to the following: Mike Ness talks about his upcoming book and new Social Distortion album and Bob makes the blanket statement, “everyone is writing books about their their lives these days”; Legendary “Decline Of Western Civilization” documentaries finally get commercial release date and Bobby is shocked to learn that his co-host has actually seen the film; Sum 41 to perform for first time in over two years at Alternative Press Music Awards; Watch: Full orchestra turns NOFX’s “The Decline” into a symphony; Bob comes to the conclusion that being featured on Dying Scene Radio is actually the kiss of death for a band, referencing two news stories that have contributed to his reasoning: Rotting Out throws in the towel; Kill Lincoln to go on hiatus following current US tour, The Punk Rock Hillbilly streams new self titled album; Much The Same announce reunion; Agnostic Front streaming entire new album – “The American Dream Died”; Strung Out streaming new album “Transmission.Alpha.Delta.”; H2O posts studio update, in related news H2O, The Misfits (playing “Earth A.D.” in full), Snapcase & more to play This Is Hardcore 2015; Dates announced for Florida’s The Fest 14.

This week on Episode 65 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #10), Bob Noxious interviews Joe Queer, guitarist and lead singer of the legendary American punk rock band The Queers on their co-headlining ticket with The Dwarves atBackBooth in Orlando, FL. And Bobby Pickles slurs through his end of this week’s podcast drunk on whiskey.

Dwarves’ frontman Blag Dahlia denies Noxious’ allegations of conspiracy to expel Bobby Pickles from The Bowery Electric on this two-part series concerning “some obscure dude from New York”.

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER:

Bobby asks Bob about how he got his start in radio. Bob explains his humble beginnings on a local Pirate Radio Station and growing up the son of a 70's A.M. Radio "Hot Jock" DJ.

Bobby declares, “pop-anything sucks”, including but not limited to pop-country and pop-hip-hop and pop-punk; he then continues on with a news story about Blink 182. Bob continues to be amazed that the aforementioned band remains seemingly relevant to the patrons of dyingscene.com and quickly dismisses them.

Bob asks Joe Queer why punk rock legends are so much more accessible than the untouchable rock heroes of yesteryear. Joe tells Bob about meeting Joey Ramone and eventually working with him on his solo record. Legendary! (There’s that word again). Later, Blag baba-booeys the interview, asking Joe about "the blow and all that stuff".

Bob discusses his deep seething hatred of the "emo/kid/bubblegum/pop" bands who are continually signed to Epitaph, explaining further that the only relevant band still left on the label is Bad Religion (not true, see: Rancid, Pennywise, Millencolin, Propagandhi, The Descendents...and the list goes on and on).

Talk turns to all of the different silly names that record labels are naming themselves.

Bobby mentions looking forward to seeing Less Than Jake in New Haven, then gloats that there are no Florida dates for Bob to catch. Bob informs Bobby that LTJ's frontman,Chris DeMakes, lives in the same Florida city as he, continuing that they play roughly eight local shows per year.

Bobby, once again, invites Bob to New York for a yearly shindig, then accuses him of being “too pushy” when Bob suggests an interview request with NJ hardcore band,Bigwig. Passive-aggressive puns are passed around playfully as Bob chastises Bobby for a slow news week at DyingScene.com when his supposed “jouralist” co-host covers a story about "some dude’s record collection" - Bobby waxing on about Minor Threat’sFiller EP.

THIS WEEK’S HEADLINES
Some of the topics reported herein, include, but are not limited to the following:Keep the Manspeaker Family together - Green Jellÿ frontman, and loving father, Bill Manspeaker starts a GoFundMe campaign to raise $5000 to retain a lawyer for his embattled court proceedings, attempting to remove custody rights from his daughter;Contest: Sweet Baby “It’s A Girl” LP reissue, new Sweet Baby 7-inch & more; Video: “The Making of Fat Mike’s Punk Rock Musical” (Part 2); more Matt Skiba and Blink 182news (Bob yawns); The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die sign to Epitaph Records; Mest announces reunion with classic lineup; Less Than Jake announce more US/Canada dates with Reel Big Fish; Live Video: Bigwig perform “Flavor Ice” at Natefest; Watch Scott Helland (Deep Wound, Outpatients) gush about record collection.

This week on Episode 64 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #9), Bobby Pickles interviews Dwarves’ frontman Blag Dahlia prior to the band’s seminal east coast show at The Bowery Electric in New York City. With “Press Pass” in hand, Pickles covers the concert in true punk rock fashion - culminating in a swarm of security guards ejecting him from the venue. Bobby is convinced that Blag gave the orders to have him forcibly removed from the concert in order to validate the band’s reputation. The FULL Video interview can be found HERE on the DSR YouTube channel: Bobby asks about the band’s nom de plumes, Blag’s books, zines and brilliant writing ability, and the day-to-day operations of a DIY punk icon, while Blag mentions his band being somehow linked to Islamic Fundamentalism, which is the perfect time to boast about being very tall and having a large penis.

BAND SPOTLIGHT: Mid Rats
The Bobs reach out to the Lancaster, Pennsylvania punk act, Mid Rats, for a St. Paddy's Day interview special...and Bobby has been drinking. The band, which just recently released their 4 song EP, Vandalize You, are this week’s featured Dying Scene artist. Bobby takes a trip down memory lane when he reveals that he used to date a girl whose uncle owned a very prominent vintage clothing business in downtown Lancaster: Zap & Co. As the conversation progresses, drunk-Bobby calls the band out for not playing Philadelphia sooner, but then saves face and displaying his literary prowess by citing Mark Twain as a reference when the band is asked about the origin of their name.

THIS WEEK IN NEWS!
Some of the topics reported herein, include, but are not limited to the following: Green Day to be inducted into Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame by Fall Out Boy; Punk producer Thom Wilson (The Offspring, Bad Religion, T.S.O.L., Dead Kennedys, Social Distortion, The Vandals, etc.) dies: Bob reveals his tasteless side when he ponders starting a "Punk Rock Death Pool", to which Bobby selects “any of the surviving Ramones members” or the high-odds pick of Green Jellÿ, who possess 600+ bandmates; Bob ponders the list, but remains silent out of respect for the recently departed.

This week on Episode 63 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #8), Bobby Pickles confirms his pirate status, while talk immediately turns to tech news, and Bob Noxious admits he has worn a smart-watch since the age of three, giving a new meaning to the term “early adoption”. But the Apple Watch isn’t very i-Punk; therefore, all the other little boys and girls always wondered why Bob was so overwhelmed with the concept of time.

While discussing this week’s music news, Bob’s darkside shows it’s grubby little hand again, as he ponders Bobby’s Internet browser history, and what people would think about his search habits.

Bobby erroneously corrects Bob for mentioning a band called Darlington, who was recently on a split 7″ with The Prozacs. Referring to the band in the plural form, Darlingtons, Bobby goes on to claim that Bob cannot remember what he says from week to week and inquires if he has ever taken Prozac. Both Bobs do not know the ailments for which Prozac is even treated. Bob adds “Prozac” to the list of items he prefers to keep out of his search history, then he decides to start a crowd funding campaign to have his co-host, Bobby, killed.

Bobby’s impeccable journalism once again shines through, as he brings up the new Flatliners video and 7″ single, which they released last week. Then his pirate-blood really becomes evident when Bobby fires shots across the bow, claiming Bob does not want to include the song in this week’s playlist. Bob argues that he is exempt, presenting his evidence of having played the new Flatliners song “Fangs” on last week’s show. Bobby lets him off the hook.

Bobby mentions a new video recently released by pop-punk band, New Found Glory, who Bob presumes to have found a “new harder edge” as Bob continues by fantasizing about Andrew WK killing them all with a chainsaw in the video.

Bobby discusses the upcoming release of The American Dream Died, which is the long awaited new record by veteran NYHC band, Agnostic Front. Bobby makes a slanderous accusation of Bob while covering the news of Roger Miret and company, but we’ll just let the listeners decide who’s telling the truth.

BAND SPOTLIGHT: ¡La Vasa!
The Bobs reach out to Santa Barbara, CA thrash punk band, ¡La Vasa! – Bobby asking right away about the weather in Southern California. Preparing for the CD release party for their new record Quest, the band speaks candidly from the warm confines of their rehearsal studio about its origins and how they started from a craigslist ad. The Bobs uncover that new bass player, Kevin Johnson, is a former DyingScene.com writer – Bob encouraging LeftCoastKJ to contribute articles to the website again.

As the show progresses in poor taste, Bobby announces that everything runs “in threes” as he mentions three notable deaths, which took place this week in the punk rock community. The dark clouds continue to accumulate overhead as the two ponder starting a “Celebrity Death Pool” until they realize that there were already three; therefore, the contest is now closed. Bobby reads The Queers statement about the recent passing of their former drummer, Tulu, in the voice of a “Miami Socialite”, while Bob insinuates his undignified co-host sounds more like 70′s icon, Supafly.

Bob cops to having discovered that there is a band from Canada called “Bobnoxious” and declares them the “third-worst thing to have ever been produced in Canada”, running a tight race with Nickleback and Justin Beiber (not necessarily in that order). Bob loses two “punk rock points” by confessing to have watched the new Nickleback video at Bobby’s mother’s house, as Bobby secretly plots to destroy Bob someday, opting not publishing his intentions like stupid Bob. Bob declares that the band is still shit and to not waste your time watching it (we all know that’s a black flag).

Bobby mentions that he will be interviewing Blag Dahlia of The Dwarves this weekend at Bowery Electric for the launch of their East Coast tour. Bob encourages him to treat Blag to shots, so that Blag will dress him. Tune in next week to see if Pickles can pull it off!

This week on Episode 62 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #7), the Bobs forgo the traditional format (no BAND SPOTLIGHT) in lieu of conducting two key interviews with Justin Thirsk of Chaos Delivery Machine and Bill Manspeaker of Green Jellÿ, respectively. Per usual, the two compare notes about the weather (Bob thrives in a sub-tropical paradise while Bobby survives yet another week of frozen, mucky hell), Bobby's girlfriend breaks up with him because of, among other things, the podcast, then Bob insists that his co-host settle for a “nice, vegan chick” instead of a “punk rock girl”, and Bob voices his displeasure with Bobby’s constant weekly updates about Blink 182.

Regarding the Bobs’ interview with Justin Thirsk, Bob begins with an apology for giving bad information the week prior about Justin’s brother, Jason, who was the original bass player of Pennywise and the author of their iconic anthem, Bro Hymn. Justin takes the Bobs on a trip down memory lane about his former band 98 Mute and explains the origins of his new recording project, Chaos Delivery Machine.

Bob compares Korean food to a Japanese band celebrating 20 years together, then mentions Burger King when another veteran punk rock band becomes the topic of conversation (Bob obviously needs to eat better before the show). Bob goes on to explain "Crossover" to Bobby, then finishes his thought by comparing punk and metal music to Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

Bob invites Bobby to visit Florida for his birthday, then tries to convince him to move back to the Sunshine State, insisting that all New Yorkers are "mean and nasty" - recalling his time frequenting the state as a youth and being punched in the face for an off-color remark. Bobby refuses to give up the other reasons why his girlfriend dumped him.

The Bobs both agree that they have "Type A" personalities, then the two “A-holes” connect with Green Jellÿ founder and frontman, Bill Manspeaker, in an online video chat. In true form, Bill shares the link with his fans who proceed to flood the chat room like circus freaks aiming to impress their ringleader - the almighty Cowgod himself. The Bobs attempt to reign in some of Bill’s adoring fans but bedlam ensues (the FULL INTERVIEW can be found HERE on the DSR YouTube page).

This week on Episode 61 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (6th Installment of Dying Scene Radio), Bob speaks solo with WRATHS/Pennywise/The Black Pacific frontman Jim Lindberg; and Bob and Bobby make an international call to Athens, Greece to speak with BAND SPOTLIGHT: Fold The Nuts.

Bob reveals his narcissistic nature by humbly letting everybody know his day of birth, the two Bobs notice striking similarities amongst long tenured bands performing classic albums in their entirety (i.e. Face To Face’s “Triple Crown” series and Bad Religion’s “Battle of the Centuries”) and Bob invites all of the listeners to make a Wikipedia page for DyingScene.com and the DS radio show, respectively.

BAND SPOTLIGHT: FOLD THE NUTS
Bob manages to offend Greek punk rockers - Fold The Nuts - not once, but twice during their brief conversation, then he attempts to win back their favor by revealing that he sometimes gasses up his car in Tarpon Springs, FL - which has the highest percentage of Greek Americans of any city in the US. The two Bobs use their sleuthy nature to figure out the true meaning behind the band’s name, then Bobby requests that Bob be more zany.

Bob makes an ill attempt to correct Bobby on his pronunciation of Bayside frontman Anthony Raneri’s last name, while the guys use character voices to describe Raneri’s statement regarding Bayside’s recently released lyric video for their new single, “Dancing Like An Idiot”.

Bob speaks with Jim Lindberg and then debuts a new track from WRATHS. After admitting that he didn't actually read Jim's best-selling book, "Punk Rock Dad", Bob practices "radical honesty" to clear his name and throws out a quick disclaimer that he has actually purchased the book online after reading the 30 page teaser on his Kindle. Noxious and Lindberg discover that they are “kindred spirits” when they compare their long list of obvious parallels - specifically, their knack for keeping a healthy band-life balance while each having three daughters.

This week (as like most) on Episode 60 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #5), Bob and Bobby jabber about NY vs. Florida weather and bums before settling in to discuss the week in punk rock.

Bobby shares a classic video game cheat code as the conversation turns to the Canadian music scene, as Bob admits to learning his Canadian geography from talking to all of the different bands and Bobby explains the “beer store” as he remembers it from his travels in Ontario.

The conversation quickly devolves into “the things people do in Florida” when The All Knowledgable Bob mentions that he had recently visited an establishment in Florida where there were football goalposts inside of the urinal and the objective of this water sport was to pee onto the attached football in order to Rube Goldberg it through the uprights. Bobby recalls the “Cornhole” game as talk turns to sports, not that either of them know anything about subject. Their only pastime, punk rock.

Bobby acknowledges his fondness of Screeching Weasel and makes an appeal to the band; Bob chuckles in amusement. Things get serious as talk turns to the latest news that Afroman was recently arrested for slugging a woman onstage. Bobby has no second thoughts about his offer to Screeching Weasel, even after Bob informs him that the same thing happened to Ben Weasel. 

A St. Louis-area band has started a crowd-funded website to help raise money to have their drummer killed. The bum finds this newsworthy and so do “the Bobs”. The band is only asking $100 to reach their goal and Bob promptly reaches for his credit card.

BAND SPOTLIGHT: Out Of Order
The two Bobs have a discsussion  with Scott and Joel from the Montreal-based Oi band, Out Of Order. It was such a great talk that the interview had to be extended into two parts. 

Since so much music was released this week on Valentine’s Day, Bob remenisces on his date, while Bobby relates by bringing up references from popular TV shows. Bob and Bobby bond over shared memories of playing with army men. And when Bob asks Bobby if he ever burned his army men, Bob reveals that he has a current collection of Barbie dolls that he keeps on display.

After noting that there has been an influx of recently released music from such 90’s punk icons as Good Riddance and Millencolin, Bob asks the question, “Is it time for 90’s punk rock to make a comeback?” Genre labeling becomes the topic of blathering when Bob plays a band that dubs themselves “college street punk”. Yeah, we’ve never heard of it either…

Check out the tracklist of all of the new bands that were featured on this weeks episode…

This week on EPISODE 59 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #4): Bob continues to gloat about the fantastic weather in Florida, while Bobby and his bum stay warm from the heater in Bobby’s mom’s car; Bob allows a glimpse into his “sick sociopath” soul as he reveals his fascination for the macabre; and Bobby gives the “all-knowledgable” Bob Noxious a mulligan after he opens his mouth without first checking his facts.

BAND SPOTLIGHT: Russian Girlfriends
The two Bobs speak with Ian, Adam and Colin of the Albequerque-based punk band, Russian Girlfriends, on this week’s DSR “Band Spotlight”. Bob jokes that while researching them on the internet, the first hit asked him for his credit card information. The bandmembers only fuel the jest by admitting that most of their Facebook likes come from middle-eastern men looking for brides. Also, it’s a DSR WORLD PREMIER – debuting an unreleased Russian Girlfriends’ track called “Tad Kuebler”.

Bobby discusses a news story, which inspires Bob to remember his Pirate Radio days. Bob coins the phrase “punk rock ‘Stairway To Heaven’” – alluding to the lengthy NOFX classic, “The Decline”.

Bob takes Bobby to the Punk Rock Academy and gives him an assignment: to find and interview a New York City “Crack Rock” band.

Bobby and the bum take a trip to Warwick, New York to visit the Orange County, NY-based hardcore punk band, Entropy. Bobby interviews bandmates Brian, Brian, Colin and Patrick on-location at Tuscan Cafe, the iconic “vegan-friendly” restaurant where these OCHC punkers once played their first show. They discuss the band’s hardcore roots while expressing disdain for the catchy ska song the group released as a “bonus track” on their latest record. Watch the FULL INTERVIEW on the DSR YouTube page.

This week on Episode 58 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #3), Bob Noxious and Bobby Pickles settle into their roles while passively aggressively trying to one-up each other. No one’s eating hot dogs at Coney Island on this episode of the podcast, but there’s plenty of hamburgers and snow in New York City. Bobby takes in a “bum” from off of the streets and mentions that, “they can be quite helpful for the budding entrepreneur.” If only they could edit audio clips…

Bob recalls watching the World Series with Bad Religion’s Brett Guerewitz while challenging the podcast listeners to send Bobby their Top 10 Most Important Punk Bands for him to study up on.

Bob then sits down and chats with the infamous Andrew WK before his performance in St. Petersburg, FL. They discuss recording with LMFAO, self-motivation, how the legendary death metal band Obituary helped form Andrew’s band…and what else? Partying!

Bobby reports on the week’s punk rock news then professes his love for 80′s music icons, Hall & Oates. Much debate ensues on whether Green Day has, or has not, been inducted in to the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. Bobby turns to his bum Tony, who is quickly proving his worth as a bona-fide fact checker.

BAND SPOTLIGHT: Crime City
This week’s BAND SPOTLIGHT artist is Vancouver-based side project punkers, Crime City, who recently released their self-titled debut EP. Three out of the four capable canucks have a “meeting with the Bobs” to discuss the band’s origins, their obvious comparisons to Propagandhi and the problems faced by Canadian musicians wanting to tour throughout the United States.

Bob also speaks with punk-author, Bob Suren, who will be releasing his first book entitled “Crate Digger: An Obsession with Punk Records” in June 2015 through Microcosm Publishing. The music inspires the memories in this memoir about growing up as a punk rocker, as told through the author’s record collection.

This week on Episode 57 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Episode 2 of Dying Scene Radio), Bobby prepares for a “blizzard of epic proportions” in Connecticut, while Bob sits at home in Florida wearing shorts and a T-Shirt. Together, they plow through another week’s worth of new music and highlight this week’s happenings, as reported by dyingscene.com.

BAND SPOTLIGHT: Things Change
This week’s BAND SPOTLIGHT is on the Canadian punk rock trio, Things Change. Often compared to Small Brown Bike, Hot Water Music and Jawbreaker, Jason Kindrachuk, the band’s guitarist/singer, talks to Bob and Bobby about the band’s origins in the prairies of Regina, Saskatchewan and how each band member migrated individually over 1700 kilometers to reform in Vancouver. The conversation turns to breaking into the Vancouver music scene and how Things Change gained their Facebook following of teenage girls who have recently broken up with their boyfriends.

Bobby gets up close and personal with Damn Broads, an all-female punk band out of Torrington, Connecticut. The interview is conducted on-location at Snapper Magee’s from the stage where the ladies recently shot a new music video for their song, “I’m A Fake”, which can be heard here. While drinking shots of Jameson, these hardcore hunnies talk about playing nazi-bars and writing songs about the Westborough Baptist Church, while Bobby reveals his love and admiration for Mariah Carey…and that was only after the first round! You can watch the interview in its entirety on the DSR YouTube page.

…Never forget the BliZZard of 2015.

Podcasting, two days after Halloween, from The Old Oak Street Burial Ground (also known as the “Old and Indian Cemetery”) in Grafton, MA, my cohort, Matthew Piazza, and I, speak with author and old-time consigliere, Roberta Grimes, about her new book “The Fun of Staying in Touch: How Our Loved Ones Contact Us and How We Can Contact Them”. Grimes’ previous work “The Fun of Dying: Find Out What Really Happens Next!” shapes most of our discussion, which spans such topics as, death and the afterlife, Jesus without Christianity, Brittany Maynard and her decision to die with dignity, if Albert Einstein was an atheist or not, and why Piazza will most likely be reincarnated as a cockroach. Roberta also hosts the talk-radio podcast, Seek Reality with Roberta Grimes, which can be downloaded for free on iTunes.

Bobby, along with Martini, conduct the following podcast from Union, NJ, at the studio of New York City-based artist, Ocean Clark, whose paintings of pop culture icons hang in various saloons and pizza restaurants throughout the five boroughs, and Hoboken and Jersey City, respectively. Ocean markets his prints and originals worldwide himself, primarily by way of various social media networks such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. On IG, Ocean packs a mean punch, auctioning off his works to thousands of followers and giving even the most respectable live stock auctioneer a run for his money.

Our guest, Carlos Morales, is a graphic sign man, musician and able seaman, who, along with Bobby, share a common enemy in Robert Taylor, a retched scallywag who hornswoggled the pair for more than their doubloons. Ram shackled and marooned on a deserted island somewhere in the south pacific, Taylor has finally found his sea legs after 20 plus years. Dead men tell no tales, so the crew blethers about piracy, plundering, bleeding their powdered monkey, and spotting dolphins; Thar she blows!

The five discuss a range of topics, from waxing the vaginal area, volunteering to fight in Vietnam, gun control, electricity…we’re idiots and we were entirely drunk while recording this so don’t take anything we say seriously.

The subsequent conversation covers various subject matters, including, the history of the band, having baby hands, illicit drug use, plus another half dozen or more ignorant topics. At times intelligent and at times idiotic, the dialogue that ensues is forever interesting, and the complete and total embodiment of those who harbor a genuine bonafide disposition.

The three discuss a range of topics, from audio editing, to being “the best”, and what it means to be the oldest hipster. They also openly discuss, to Bobby’s chagrin, the infamous Halloween party pants shitting incident, as well as John’s discography, along with some of his war stories. In addition, Bobby records Martini’s rendition of “The Cape” by Guy Clark, euphonious gold despite their obvious musician handicap.

Bobby podcasts, on location, from Jersey City Tattoo Co., located at 253 Newark Ave in downtown Jersey City, with co-owner, Jake Kolatis, guitarist of the New York City hardcore punk band, The Casualties. The two discuss a range of topics, from what it’s like to play on the Warped Tour, to the evolution of punk rock sub-genres (from 1976 or ‘77 to the present), to why the term “squatter punk” is inappropriate nomenclature. They also discuss what it’s like to tour with GWAR and their shared backgrounds in tee shirt making, a characteristic, which Bobby deems “punk rock”. Since tee shirt graphics are truly the “punk rock” of fine art. Also, there’s nothing more “punk” than podcasting!

Bobby podcasts from Balance Hair Salon in downtown Jersey City, while lounging in one of the shop’s large, adjustable chairs, with Carla Anderson, the shop’s proprietor, trimming and styling his hair into his quintessential faux hawk. The two discuss a range of interesting topics, from stripping to styling, from modern art to alien abduction, and even a few stories from one of her screwball regulars, Donald Gallagher. “Imagine CBGB with mousse and shears” - that’s how the New York Times describes Carla and her posse of tatted, tonsorial artists.

What’s your favorite quote? Does it motivate you? Does it excite you? Is it tattooed on your rib cage or printed on a tee shirt? Perhaps, if you found the perfect picture to express it, you could create a meme for it. And if you did, you would most certainly use Quotiful to do so.

Regardless of the distain Bobby holds in his heart in relation to his city of origin, according to Tobia, St. Petersburg has lots of history. From pro wrestlers to baseball icons, many notable athletes have called St. Pete home. And even probably the most notable gangland figure, Al Capone, vacationed there extensively. Calling all notable residents of "The Burg" and their insignificant counterparts - who make Bobby’s opinion of this place true and accurate - meet Tobia Spinelli.

Furthermore, Bobby speaks with Mr. Michael “Burko” Burko, the show’s soundman, and a very interesting character. Burko’s story reigns true with the whole idea of the Bukowski-inspired tattoo Bobby is receiving while conducting the interviews. Bukowski's motto was "don't try, do".

Bobby speaks with Bob McManus, a person who has absolutely no affiliation in anyway whatsoever with FAT ENZO. Everything stated in this episode is jest. It is a performance art piece that was produced at the beginning of Bobby's podcasting career.

Bobby speaks with "Papa" about life and loyalties 60 miles north of New York City, in what some have labeled the “armpit of Connecticut”. 

The birthplace of the Frisbee and of the Subway restaurant chain, it’s a place latent with political corruption and scandals, like when the city’s mayor admitted to using cocaine while in office.

The comedian Fred Allen once referred to it when he famously said, "Everywhere outside New York City is Bridgeport, Connecticut."

This episode, along with episodes 6 and 7, were all recorded on the eve of the Mayan Apocalypse, December 20th 2012 in the year of our lord, 2012. Feeling pretty amped up that night, Bobby decided to tape some shows.

On this particular episode, Bobby speaks with Dina Rae, a loving wife and mother who resides in the Chicago suburbs and writes novels of fiction about what we both agree to be non fiction subject matter: conspiracy theories, illuminati, free masonry. Looks like Alex Jones and Stephen King just had a zombie baby who speaks with a Midwest twang!

The band is finally back together! After a year and a half of hating each other, friends Rob Piccirillo "Bobby Pickles", David Bader "Mr. Badey" and Adrien de Martini "Mahhteeny" finally squash their differences and discuss a slew of topics, from gun control to Aussie promiscuity and drunkenness. 

Bobby reflects on the time he and Mr. Badey were victims of a home invasion in St. Pete, Martini talks about shooting photography with real film (like the true hipster he claims not to be) and Badey shares his experiences living down under in Australia.

"Stop drinking milk!" Bobby speaks with Dr. Daniel Twogood, a D.C. from California who wrote a new book entitled "Chronic Pain Gone 90 Days". Dr. Dan says virtually all chronic pain can be cured by cutting out dairy, gluten and MSG. The American food pyramid is the cause of your pain! Subtract foods from your diet rather than adding drugs or supplements. That crap is no good for you either.

Bobby's first podcast. Bobby interviews Francesco Portelos, a Staten Island school teacher who is not afraid to speak out about being banished to a temporary reassignment center, i.e. Rubber Room. Mayor Bloomberg said the "Rubber Rooms" were no more. I call bullshit on that, Hizzoner.
