Bobby Pickles' Podcast™️

It’s been a little while since we’ve produced an episode of Bobby Pickles’ Podcast. Primarily, because Bobby is too consumed with his other podcast - Dying Scene Radio. If you haven’t checked it out, you should! But aside from punk rock, Bobby still likes to talk about everything under the sun. On this episode of BPP, Bobby Pickles and lifelong beer buddy, Ben Coletti(along with Coletti’s girlfriend, Jessica Hardy, and a stupidiot named Tone Lo-Ki) conduct a roundtable discussion regarding Bobby’s potential return to Floriduhh but not without fears of alcoholism and losing his edge. Jessica brings up “Rob’s problem” as she kindly puts it. Ben tells what it’s like to date a “black chick” who is culturally un-black. Bobby poses the question: “Why does Coletti look like fucking Tom Hanks in Castaway?” The crew also discusses Coletti’s weird “hair stamp”, and living with Gary Smith in a white trash apartment years ago. They also chat about meeting up with all “the friends” at the “three sisters” brewery during Bobby’s vacation weekend, how great Mewz looks pregnant despite her fondness of chugging beers with a baby in her belly, and what Coletti was saying to Mewz’s kid in her stomach. Coletti compares mentally abusing his girlfriend to Pavlov’s dog. Bobby explains why he hates Feminism by telling a Tinder story. Jessica explains why Men will eventually be obsolete. Tone Lo-Ki can’t help not being anti-Semitic. They talk about how Florida consists of Floridiots, stupidiots and the walking dead. Tone Lo-Ki brings up the Adam/polish face. Bobby explains that Coletti comes from great stock but may die prematurely (just like he was born prematurely) due to chronic Bud Light consumption/sun poisoning. Ben says, “Rob never listens unless he’s ready to understand.” This ridiculous conversation is quite a doozy. Crack open a Bud Light and enjoy!

This week on Episode 79 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #24), Bob Noxious interviews Black Cat Attack in his unkempt garage with his shoes and air conditioner off. The Ajax, Ontario female-fronted death punks are out on tour, in support of their latest record, Bright Side of the Moon, making their way up and down the U.S. eastern seaboard, chatting with Bob at his home in Tampa, in between their Florida dates. Bobby Pickles is in on the conversation too via phone, and that’s just fine with him, because he gets to practice zero discretion, bombing them from afar with blathering idiocy, leaving Bob to deal with the uncomfortable mess, he created. The Bobs also speak with Neil Mitchell, bass/vocalist of the UK melodic punk act Templeton Pek - slated to release their latest record New Horizons on July 24th through Hardline Entertainment. Neil compares his experience recording the album to that of a pilgrimage, traveling to Hermosa Beach, even using the same bass guitar that Jason Thirsk used to lay the tracks for the Pennywise anthem “Bro Hymn”. Bobby says, “yeah, except you stormed the church, grabbed the crucifix off the wall and played it.” Neil adds, “and then we tried to steal it, but they wouldn’t let us.” Episode 24’s recurring themes: bias wikipedia editors and Bob’s innate ability to coin words/phrases. Also, Bobby mistakenly covers an article published by The Hard Times, which is essentially punk rock’s Onion.

This week on Episode 78 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #23), Bob Noxious and Bobby Pickles are joined in-studio by guest hosts, Fletcher Dragge (of Pennywise fame) and Justin Thirsk, two-thirds of the Hermosa Beach trio known as Chaos Delivery Machine! They’re trying to wake people up to the insane realities of the world through their freshly released cacophony record entitled - BURN MOTHERF#CKER, BURN - produced by Fletcher himself via Hardline Entertainment. An enemy will stab you in the back, but a true friend will stab you in the front, repeatedly - which Fletcher and Justin (a couple longtime pals who have enough stories and insights to fill a podcast program of their own) make abundantly clear by the diatribe they exchange. The Bobs also speak with Olga and Diste of the female-fronted “Russian” hardcore punk band, SVETLANAS, whose latest record, Naked Horse Rider, was produced by Dwarvesfrontman Blag Dahlia. Catch them out on the Warped Tour this summer! Episode 23’s recurring theme: unconventional Pringles can applications.

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER

Bobby publicly criticizes Dying Scene for not copying him on the long email chain swapped by the DS editors responsible for generating a list of The 25 Best Punk albums of 2015 (so far).

In Bobby’s opinion, they did not do their due diligence by omitting the latest Screeching Weasel opus, Baby Fat Act 1. Bobby has vowed to help write the updated list in six months, including the aforementioned record plus CDM’s BURN MOTHERF#CKER, BURN- which is a lengthy concept opus in itself. Fletcher is astonished to learn that when Ben Weasel sat in his chair last month, he lambasted damn near everyone in punk rock, but had nothing bad to say about Pennywise.

While discussing the new Chaos Delivery Machine record, Fletcher discusses his roles as self appointed bassist and producer of the band, gloating that producing had given him a “license to f#ck with everyone”, and ultimately, got exactly what he wanted.

Kanye West found himself in the music news this week by declaring himself the greatest rockstar in the world. We here at Dying Scene Radio do not necessarily consider this news, but we do stand by Fletcher’s declaration that he, along with the Kardashians, should “take a long walk off a short pier”.

Fletcher and Justin relive their “sh!t-pipe” story and Fletcher basically calls Bobby dumb for not realizing that most fertilizer is essentially fecal matter. Get ready to laugh in stitches! Without going into too many details, you might learn where the term “smoking the good sh!t” originated.

It is no secret that Fletcher loves a nice White Russian. What you may not know, however, is that his favorite vehicle of choice is to deliver that tasty beverage is a Pringles can. Justin adds that the salt from the chips give the drink that extra special secret ingredient, which puts it over the top. When asked if the Pennywise’s rider has any weird accommodation requests ala Van Halen’s brown M&M’s, Fletcher admits that he’s fine with a deli tray and a wet bar, and maybe four or five pizzas after the show. When asked about the powerfood that sparks their creative process, Fletcher proclaims that any bag of chips and beef jerky usually does the trick.

From one White Russian to another, the Bobs spotlight the female-fronted hardcore punk act, SVETLANAS, who are Russian by way of Italy. The band’s open criticism of Vladimir Putin has rendered lead singer, Olga, unwelcome in her home country, and entire band, enemies of the state. Possessing the band's latest record, Naked Horse Rider, is considered a crime in Russia. The band explains the risk involved with taking part in the secret Soviet underground punk scene, which is often violent.

Bob displays his knowledge of, and undying affection for, the British children’s television program, Teletubbies. Now, if he can only figure out the difference between the purple and yellow one.

Chaos Delivery Machine will lead you along the path of righteousness! Or, so says Fletcher, when asked about healthy eating habits. “They” try to pass off the food pyramid as edible and safe, which disturbs Fletcher, who prefers to think of pigs and chickens doing their thing on the farm instead of being kept in a cage.

Justin and Fletcher debate the difference between 2’ x 3’ and 24” x 36”. Is there really a difference? Fletcher thinks so.

Fletcher confesses that he has fans in prison who send him mail...and text messages. Because, if you can get heroin and bitches in prison, a cell phone’s not so far fetched. Will Pennywise ever play San Quentin as did Johnny Cash so many moons ago? Only “time” will tell.

Friendship. Brotherhood. Comaraderie. If you can't take a joke, kindly excuse yourself from this planet. Best friends can always outwit each other successfully.

This week on Episode 77 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #22), Bob Noxious and Bobby Pickles say “good morning” to Pat Decline, guitarist/lead singer of the Aussie punk act, The Decline, who’s on the line from the downunder, sporting a winter beanie cap and eating a Vegemite sandwich. Pat has difficulty skirting around certain topics, as his quick witted Kiwi sarcasm becomes no match for Bobby’s powerful pseudo-intellectual questioning. The two Bobs also speak with two Jasons, when the driveling duo welcomes guitarist/lead singer Jason V and bassist Jason 3D, half of the Crystal Lake, NJ horror-pop-punk band The Jasons. They’re four mongoloid brothers who enjoy pissing people off with their immature antics and playing pure Red-Blooded American Punk Rock. They may not sound exactly how you might think they would...but we'll let you be the judge of that. Episode 22’s recurring theme: backslashes and throat slashes.

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER

The Bobs plan an October camping trip in Gainesville because all of the hotels are sold out for FEST. Bobby suggests inviting The Jasons, and together, the two Bobs decide that this idea would be incredibly awesome. Then, always one to toot his own horn, Bobby informs all of the listeners, plus anyone else who will listen, that his recently published Dying Scene article entitled 10 Most Distasteful Punk Rock Band Names was #1 on the Google Analytics this week. Psychologically unable to give anyone encouragement, Bob calls Bobby out for his glaring omissions from the list, while pondering the whereabouts of the pizza delivery guy.

After playing through the first batch of songs, Bob reveals his socio-geopolitical ignorance while describing his vision of what an Israeli woman looks like in his head. Bobby is astounded by Bob's lack of knowledge, then briefly educates Bob about desert fast-food chains and the Israeli army. The consummate line stepper, Bob further divulges his clueless nature by mentioning "the Mexicans who used to work on his job site", when Bobby asks Bob where he learned all his Spanish. No wonder why everybody hates Bob.

Bob lambastes Bobby for covering a news story about an upcoming heavy metal festival. Audibly disgusted, Bob tells Bobby that there’s only room for punk on Dying Scene Radio. As the onion unpeels, Bob discloses that he has a stalker, who happens to be a former metal singer. Bobby shrugs it off, declaring that Bob seems more likely to be a stalker than have one.

Stereotyping obviously becomes the next topic of conversation as the Bobs connect halfway around the world with Pat from the Perth-based punk band, The Decline. Bob asks Pat if he is sick of hearing references to the iconic 80's Australian pop band, Men At Work, all while Pat eats his Vegemite on toast. While not necessarily offended by it, Pat does voice his displeasure with the classic Simpsons episode that disparages the outback. Moving past the pigeonholing, Pat explains the Australian music scene, Bob describes a Cuban sandwich, then Bobby pressures Pat for an answer to what is probably the band's most frequently asked question. Check out the full interview to find out the answer to that question, as well as the plethora of other asinine questions that the Bobs stream of consciousness.

Bobby continues on with his unhealthy obsession with the "slash" as it is used in the English language. Knowing this while picking songs for the episode, Bob makes clear his correct use of syntax, informing Bobby that he will not be needing to edit him with such a heavy hand. After further probing, Bobby declares that Bob was indeed grammatically correct in his use of the backslash, to which Bob defiantly agrees.

Speaking of “slash”, next up are a couple of slashers - Jason V and Jason 3D, who join the show directly from their cabin on Camp Crystal Lake. Profanity and hilarity ensue as two Bobs blather with two Jasons, who could easily feel right at home on any stage doing stand-up comedy, but instead choose to make beautiful pop-punk music - all while donning individually decorated hockey masks ala the Friday the 13th movie franchise. The band also has a web series that they produce on a regular basis. Bobby questions the two Jasons on their "performance art" after they single handedly ruined a Doyle show by forgetting the set-list and playing out of tune guitars. Other topics visited: the challenges of playing pop/punk music in a mask, and running a “family business”.

Usually not the one to offend, Bobby disparages the Jasons’ mother. Initially shocked by the callous remark, V and 3D offer an Internet beat down, and then go on to tell about crossing the Canadian border in their fart-bus while importing their mother’s severed head. The Jasons then promise that the band will be breaking up at the conclusion of the podcast, but also claim to disband and reunite on an almost daily basis. Sounds like brotherly love to us! Please just don't call them "horror punk" or you’re dead! Make sure to check out the rest of the interview in its entirety...these guys are a fearsome.

This week on Episode 76 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #21), Bob Noxious and Bobby Pickles welcome the Denton, Texas-based ska act, The Holophonics, who are preparing to release their twelfth studio album, Don’t Mess With The Holophonics, on July 14th. You can pre-order a copy on the group’s bandcamp. The Bobs also highlight the London, Ontario pizza-punks, Wasted Potential, who just digitally released their new EP, Nervous Conditions, on Get Party Records. They are also offering a cassette version through the band’s tape label, Curt Murder Fan Club. Also, Bobby gets all political, falling prey to the pandering, incoherent blathering perpetrated by the mainstream corporate media. And nobody wants to join him down that dirty rabbit hole! Episode 21’s recurring theme: Politics-Schmolitics.

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER

As the nation's political season starts taking shape, Bobby lets his political incorrectness shine through, Bob asking the unfortunate question “What soapbox are you currently standing on, Bobby?” There’s a laundry list of problems within the state of the world, but the two decide to forgo any potentially polarizing topics of discussion, opting to “keep it light”.

Always one to spot genius, Bobby notices how bands can steal internet traffic from bands 100x their stature just by combining their band name and album title to match something in another band’s description. Very clever! There have been generations of bands doing it all wrong!

Bob brings up being “exposed” to terrible music on terrestrial radio, citing horrible “Dad rock” of 90’s yesteryear. Bob insists that it was all “crappy” music then, and the fact that it still exists to this day on the radio is torturous. Bobby explains that it is Bob’s proximity in a southern market that indicates the station’s playlist.

Eric Daino of The Holophonics joins the show, giving the Bobs a quick history lesson on the band, explaining how they have been able to release 11 albums in just three years. Discussing the blank stares they get when they have to explain the ska genre to fellow Texans, Daino acknowledges his admiration for the schleppy Top 40 band, Maroon 5, and absolute disgust of U2. Eric explains the band’s “business model” of covering popular songs in their own ska-style and releasing them on YouTube. Other discussions include touring, crowdfunding, and politics...plus the world premier exclusive of a new track entitled “Frack-Off!” Check out the band’s new music video, Meteoric Rise To Mediocrity, released today!  

After feeling inspired by Bob’s inept news gathering, highlighted a 5 year old article on “how to make a punk rock vest”, Bobby decides to covers an article about foreign bands and their “American equivalent”. Sometimes, we have slow news days here at the ol’ punk rawk ranch.

While discussing “inside baseball” about the show, Bobby lets the cat out of the bag about a pending interview with Jello Biafra, legendary frontman of Dead Kennedys. Biafra, who collected 10 votes while running for President in 2000 under the Green Party ticket, would make a wonderful addition to the show, considering Bobby’s eagerness to polarize our listenership with politics. We’re pretty sure that Jello has a few opinions of his own. Vote Jello 2016!

Up next and fresh off of band practice are the Canadian pizza-punk band, Wasted Potential. Immediately, Bob quizzes the band about hometown heroes, Bobnoxious. Surprised by the enthusiasm from a couple punk rockers who glamourize the second worst band to ever come out of The Great White North, Bob takes it as a clear indication that the air must be very thin north of the United States border. From there, the topics include guns, robberies, poor beer choices, the best pizza styles, making excuses to clear the border patrol, and WP’s upcoming date at FEST in Gainesville.

As the show wraps up, the Bobs’ completely miss the mark on yet another Canadian band, referencing a slang dictionary for further clarification. Professing their ignorance for what the band “SNFU” means as an acronym, Bob warns to “stay away from definition #2”.

This week on Episode 75 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #20), Bob Noxious and Bobby Pickles switch things up, with Bobby choosing all the music and Bob doing his best Walter Punkite impersonation. It's time to find out what Bob thinks is newsworthy and what Bobby thinks sounds good. Let's leave it up to the listeners to decide! Joining the team in-studio is Bobby's "business associate", Tone Lo-ki, of FAT ENZO. The two Bobs, and their trusty sidekick, spotlight two bands: Denver ska-punks The A-OKs who’ve just released their third full-length studio album Maybe Partying Will Help, and Philadelphia horror-punk act The Mad Splatter who are set to release their new EP Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things. Episode 20’s recurring theme: Role Reversal.

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER

Bob kicks things off by referencing "The Bum", which Bobby had specifically asked him not to do via corporate email earlier in the day. Like Rick James, Noxious is an habitual line stepper. If you’ve been following along at home, you know the storyline, but if not, you can download the Dying Scene Radio back catalogue via iTunes.

When the Bobs discuss their new roles for the week, Bob admits that whatever he found as news may not even be relevant because he chose not to pay attention to Google Analytics, opting to instead mention what he found interesting.

With his new found feeling of entitlement to speak openly, Bob tells everyone how much he "loathes" live albums, opining that they are usually reserved for bands who are too lazy to write music or don't have enough "hits" for a Greatest Hits record.

Bob and Tone connect through their mutual admiration of Suicidal Tendencies, then begin recanting the lyrics to Institutionalized, which was recently covered by Body Count. Just ignore Bob's horrible Ice-T impression.

The consummate grammar-nazi, Bobby quizzes Bob on the correct way to add a "slash" to a group of words - citing Bad Cop / Bad Cop. Bob takes his stance, getting angered and annoyed by people who use the "backslash" incorrectly. Bobby takes it a step further, explaining that there are actually two different types, each having a different name and function, to which Bob deadpans, "yeah, front-slash and backslash".

While introducing one of the new bands on the playlist, Bobby recognizes that one of the bandmembers is drinking a Bud Light in their band photo. Quickly, Bob makes fun of their name, threatening their lives if they don't remove the "Z" from Loud Boyz. Tone Lo-ki warns that he’ll join the browbeating if they don't start drinking "real" beer. Bobby may in fact be a “grammar-nazi” but Bob and Tone are “beer-nazis”.

The guys then speak with Colorado ska-punks, The A-OKs, who are taking a break from their rehearsal, keeping it classy, while drinking Old English 800 from the 40oz. Immediately, Bobby asks their opinion on Bud Light, Bob seeming genuinely annoyed by such a ludicrous question. When the band approves of Bobby’s continuous consumption of canned Clydesdale piss, Bob deducts 3 punk-points from the band. Everybody knows that cold, delicious, domestic flows from the tap like water in Colorado.

Bobby alludes to the “legal stuff” in Colorado, which the band admits "everybody is doing", so naturally it must be ok. It then becomes apparent that while on tour, things aren't as legal as they are back home. Talk about an inconvenience...

While discussing The A-Oks’ upcoming summer tour, Bob asks if they will be visiting the Sunshine State, realizing that not only are they making a stop in St. Petersburg, but they will be playing just four short blocks down the street from where Bob's band, Pig Pen, are playing on that very evening. They all promise to meet up for a beer and to "sneak behind the alley".

Obviously hockey fans, talk turns to the recent Stanley Cup Finals and how Lightning goalie, Ben Bishop, played through a torn groin, which everyone assumed was just diarrhea.

The Bobs featured a new song from The A-OKs a few weeks back on the infamous “Ben Weasel episode”, where Ben proclaimed the ska-punk genre to be a re-animated corpse, back to annoy, proclaiming “good riddance”. Amused by Ben's take on their music, The A-Oks send Ben a personal message through the airwaves.

Catch The A-OKs on the Ska Revival Tour this summer, and download their new record Maybe Partying Will Help. This skankin’ septet will be traveling cross-country, playing dates with all their favorite bands, and Bob predicts that the band will hate each other after two days in close quarters of the van. Good luck on the road boys and girls!

Bobby gives Bob props for the amount of work that goes into stringing just a few measly punk rock songs together. Bob then directs the listeners to send all "hate mail" to Bobby for any bad picks he may have made musically on the podcast.

After asking for permission from Bobby to continue reporting on this week’s news, Bob is most amused by the Dying Scene article entitled "How To Make A Punk Rock Vest". Learn the basics, like choosing a fabric, sewing, studding and finding the right patches. Bobby does not think that a vest is necessary to "be a punk" and asks Tone Lo-ki for reassurance. Bob asks them both to tell that to the Hells Angels, to which Bobby weaves his tale of making t-shirts for the chapter on the Lower East Side of New York City.

The next guest in-studio is Chuck from the Atlantic City via Philly-based horror-punks, The Mad Splatter, who Pickles quips as to sounding like "Screeching Weasel ‘effed’ a Misfit" or vice-versa, the opposite being more appropriate. Chuck pledges allegiance to The Ramones, then confesses that most of the band’s songwriting was originally based on their favorite horror films, stating that there are enough songs about girls in the world.

In his most tasteless question to date, Bob asks Chuck how "Mowzer" is doing, while discussing the band's new upcoming EP Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things. Mowzer was a cat who was recently attacked by an unknown animal. The band was offering to donate the proceeds from their latest song, "Dead Boyfriend", to the animal's recovery. Unbeknownst to Bob, the animal was recently put down as Chuck giggled, "awww, c'mon too soon, bro"

Chuck, quickly misdirected, starts talking about the band’s new concept album, the writing of which is already complete. Entitled The Rose, the record is loosely based on the occult, satan and Children of the Corn. As they all begin to reminisce, Bob admits to watching the film as a child in baby diapers, Chuck conceding that they are peeling back the onion, which is Bob.

After asking about the slimiest sh!t-hole the band has ever played, Chuck calls out Tommy's Tavern in Brooklyn as the winner, where you can most certainly be greeted by a coke dealer at the door and challenged to a fight by the bar’s proprietor. Ahh, punk rock!

A debate ensues as to whether or not MxPx is actually a “Christian band”, after Bobby cites the Weasel Radio episode featuring Mike Herrera, then asks Bob if he thought it was theoretically possible for a Christian horror-punk band to exist. Bob characteristically tells the world that he "could give two sh!ts" and "if you want Buddah up your butthole, fine”. Being that MxPx is no longer passing out Bibles after shows, Bobby asks Bob if he thought any differently of the band, to which he replies, "I didn't like them then, and I don't like them now", theorizing that they were "turned out" at one of the Warped Tours.  

Tone Lo-Ki outros the show after discussing the new forthcoming Wisdom In Chainsrecord and subsequent release party/BBQ.

This week on Episode 74 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #19), Bob Noxious and Bobby Pickles welcome BIGWIGguitarist/frontman, Tom Petta, in-studio high atop the world on the 119th floor of Dying Scene Head Honcho Johnny X’s swanky East Village, NYC hotel room. Everyone has been invited to the party, except for Bob, who is lounging at home in his flippy-floppies with the Tampa Bay Lightning game thundering in the background. Like the great Wizard of Oz, Mr. “X” is finally unmasked for that of the illustrious Dave Buck. He and the Bobs speak with Tom aboutBIGWIG’s upcoming US/Canada tour and the imminent recording of their new album, the reasons for BIGWIG’s long hiatus (Tom’s severed finger) and having some of its original lineup back together. Episode 19’s recurring theme: Bobby’s insecure cheapshots at Bob.

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER

Bobby voices his displeasure with the Sunshine State. Tom piles on about Florida's hot and sticky humidity, but still asserts his love for Bob's hometown of Tampa Bay. After some gentle prodding from Bobby, Tom declares that Camden is "the grimiest city in South Jersey".

Tom fills everyone in on BIGWIG’s planned July recording and forthcoming tour dates across Canada and down the U.S. eastern seaboard, culminating at Fest 14 in Gainesville, Florida, waxing nostalgic about returning band members, Josh Farrell andZach Lorinc, who are back in BIGWIG after a brief intermission. Tom talks about how they make BIGWIG work with band members living in New Jersey, Pittsburgh and Montreal.

After reading an article declaring Tom an outdoorsman, Bob teases him about hanging out with Ted Nugent. After further explanation, Tom defines his love of “the Earth” as more about keeping active by hiking, cycling, surfing and kayaking. Bobby tells a story about riding his beach cruiser bicycle through Brooklyn while others heckled him about his "Pee-wee Herman bike”.

Bob drops a Van Halen reference, while describing how unsuccessful it really is for a band to continue on after their lead singer’s departure. Many have tried; few are victorious. The Dead Kennedys are mentioned as a band willing to forge ahead without their original iconic frontman and yodeler, Jello Biafra. Tom states that he has seen the line-up sans Jello and has no complaints about their sound. When Bobby asks Tom what he thinks about other bands who continue on with only one original member, he deadpans that he is not the right person to comment on that. Bob mentions his friend, who recently joined the legendary southern rock band, Blackfoot, and boasts about their having none of its original members. Fans expect for bands to stay together forever, but "life happens" and it’s difficult to stay gold, Ponyboy.

Tom talks about growing up in New Jersey and his time spent on the Jersey Shore. Bobby mentions that you have to buy tokens to get on the beach in Jersey and asks Bob if he has an opinion on that, to which Bob replies, “that's why nobody vacations in Jersey”. Bobby then starts prying into Dying Scene Dave’s life, determines that he is from Oregon, has lived the California for well over a decade, and is now preparing to move to the concrete jungle of New York City. Meanwhile, Tom and Dave plan an east coast surfing trip. Then, when talk turns to skimboarding, Bob declares that the watersport is for people who can’t surf, either because they can’t, or conditions won’t allow it. Bob dates himself when he admits to sporting SunDek boardshorts while skimboarding in his youth. Blank stares ensue.

Tom outlines the subtle differences between being a record producer and recording engineer. Tom says that when he produces, he tends to immerse himself in the project and can’t understand people who just sit on the couch offering their opinion. While on the subject of recording, Bobby how many fans actually elect to pay money for the “name your price” download option on BandCamp. Dave claims to be “blown away” by the about of people who actually do.

Bob asks Tom if BIGWIG would consider playing the Warped Tour if they were asked, given the age of the band and the pre-pubescent nature of the iconic punk festival’s demographics. Without hesitation, Tom declares his unfettered bro-love for fest founder, Kevin Lyman, adding that he would be honored to play. Bobby then recalls Bob’s Fat Mike story, looking for validation from Tom that Fat Mike is indeed a jerk and more than likely owes Bob a few royalties for the NOFX “Coaster” CD idea. Everyone agrees that maybe Fat Mike was just having a bad day, then Bobby admits to getting big-leagued by Oprah’s Indian self-help guru, Deepak Chopra, while managing a cell phone kiosk in NYC.

Bobby tries to convince the world, again, that Bud Light is a great beer, eliciting a negative response from everyone else in the room. Tom mentions his affinity for a good Guinness, acknowledging that it must sound pretentious; or a Black & Tan, which makes him sound needy. Tom then confesses to not being much of a drinker, ultimately giving Pickles license to enjoy his “nectar of the gods”.

Tom chronicles the industrial accident, which sidelined his guitar shredding for over two years. Bob asks Tom which finger he would prefer to lose, if given the choice. His response: the right pinkie finger, but says that he can get by with “just a claw”.

This week on Episode 73 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #18), Bob Noxious and Bobby Pickles play a game of good cop/bad cop with Jennie Cotterill, guitarist/vocals for the Los Angeles-based all-female punk act, Bad Cop / Bad Cop. (Holy forward slashes batman)! The band’s debut LP Not Sorry drops July 16th on Fat Wreck Chords, which, Jennie assures, is a major label that does quite a lot for its young, newly-signed artists. The Bobs also address Ben Weasel’s recent allegations of exploitation involving his guest hosting appearance on last week’s show. Check out the “influencers” episode of Weasel Radio, where Mr. Foster and Owen Wilson (Oops, I meant “Owen Murphy”) hold a prompt discussion about the unoriginality of the “Bob Noxious” moniker. Episode 18’s recurring theme: Creepers in da midst.

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER

We love the sound of punk rock in the morning! We also love the funny sound effects Bobby makes while alluding to his “medicine”. Bobby has a CT “prescription” for performance art, so let's not point our judgemental fingers. Because Bobby can still see through both the smoky haze and Bob's good intentions with Bad Cop Jennie, respectively.

Discussing the news in rapid succession, Bob suggests that the singer of the band You Big Idiot is giving off the "creep vibe" (later in the episode, Bob begins inspecting the contents of Jennie's house, which isn’t creepy at all). Bob sets Bobby straight about the Fat Music series. Only Jah knows about Bad Brains’ future. Punk Island is coming to Staten Island June 21st! Bobby ponders arranging Dying Scene Radio’s presence on-site, while Bob encourages him to do so. Bob attempts a Russian accent, offending any Russians who may be listening.

Jennie curiously points out that Bobby uses two microphones, to which Bob interjects that they are Los Angeles Lakers colors. Surprisingly, at least to Bob, Jennie claims her allegiance to the LA Clippers. Jennie moved to California, not to be a rockstar, but to get very far away from Michigan. Jennie talks about BC/BC’s 2011 origins, talking Fat Mike into catching their show at a drag queen festival, and how one of his tweets ultimately changed the band's career trajectory. Bob shares his “Fat Mike story”, which you must hear for yourself to truly appreciate.

Jennie answers Ben Weasel's question from last week: “What exactly does a record label do for an up-and-coming band that the upstart band cannot do for themselves?” Jennie states that more than anything, it is an endorsement, opening doors, and bringing corporate culture rules along for the ride! Prior to Fat Mike’s nod of approval, Jennie argues that many promoters were quick to dismiss the all-girl group, boldly proclaiming, she wouldn’t have wanted to be in a band having to follow BC/BC, humbly asserting, they were usually the best band on the bill.

Bob claims to have taken three years of Spanish 1, but has only learned enough vocabulary to “cuss out a Mexican on a jobsite”, then he proceeds to translate Spanish song titles and Miami Burger King drive-thru menus, among other things. Bobby mentions his affinity for the new Screeching Weasel record, Baby Fat Act 1. Bob says, he'll get around to listening to it someday. Bobby says, punk records aren't long enough. Bob talks about his sold out gig with GBH, The Business, The Attack and Total Chaos. Bobby has an idea for a t-shirt, which Bob admits, is as original as his moniker. (Oi! Vey).

This week on Episode 72 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #17), the Bobs’ digital smoke signals to Ben Weaselfinally pays off, as the Screeching Weaselfounder and frontman guest hosts the show, joining Bob Noxious and Bobby Pickles in studio to discuss everything under the sun, from bums to farming to fat, middle-aged punk rock stereotypes - the three blather back and forth about a slew of interesting, unconventional topics. Weasel’s epic punk rock opus - Baby Fat Act 1 - is out now on Recess Records. Episode 17’s recurring theme: Performance Art.

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER

The show wouldn’t be the same without a local weather report, so right off the bat, Bobby the meteorologist asks for an oral account on the state of precipitation in the area encompassing Ben’s hometown of Madison, Wisconsin. Ben responds that he is enjoying a nice sunny day overlooking his cattle grazing in the Alfalfa fields. Who knew that Ben Weasel was a farmer!?

Ben interrogates Bobby about his decision to employ a homeless person as a model for his T-shirt company. Bobby reveals how he first met “the bum”, who was living inside of Penn Station, when Bobby first moved to NYC. Bobby, who was managing a cell phone kiosk, thought it rather ironic that a bum would have a cell phone, so he struck up a friendship with the man. Ben commends Bobby on his humanitarian efforts, when Bobby admits to housing and employing “the bum”. Ben concedes to feeling like “a heel” for trying to make a joke about it. Intrigued by the new-found thought of employing bums as T-shirt models, Bob suggests to Bobby that maybe he should consider publishing a calendar as a way to support the homeless on a more regular basis, which Ben wholeheartedly agrees upon.

While on the subject of T-shirts, Bobby bounces an idea off of Bob and Ben: “What about a “mash-up” tee, depicting the recently deceased B.B. King as G.G. Allin (B.B. Allin) - complete with poo and tattoos?” In unison, Ben and Bob both agree that it is way too soon for that much poor taste, but that King’s heirs should be entitled to some of the profits if that were to happen.

Like a kid at Disney World, Bobby cannot contain his excitement as he gleefully tells Ben that not only did he purchase Baby Fat Act 1 from iTunes on the day of its release, but that he has listened to the entire offering three times already. Ben explains the general concept behind his punk rock opera, which is played out by many singers and complete with a libretto - but for a more comprehensive breakdown of the characters and plot, please read Ben’s exclusive interview with the Italian magazine, Tempi. Baby Fat is based on the opera, Rigoletto, which Bobby admits to watching the Luciano Pavarotti version online earlier in the afternoon after not being able to find a cassette deck to play his Italian grandfather's audio version.

The conversation turns to crowdfunding. There’s a common misconception in the “record business” about artists who “beg” for money from their fans, but Ben justifies his use of crowdfunding to finance his operatic masterpiece by comparing it to nothing more than a glorified pre-order, but without the recoupable advance from the record company. He also states that crowdfunding is really a tool in-line with the old standby D.I.Y. ethics of yesteryear. The artist maintains control by doing everything for his or herself; therefore, cutting out the middle-man, which benefits the artist in terms of receiving larger royalty percentages as well.

After nearly 30 years of playing punk music, Ben proclaims that punk bands will always shoot themselves in the foot, based on their misguided principles. He goes on to point out that most of them spend too much time, himself included, apologizing for their actions and what they say; meanwhile, Bob is preparing to play a new track from Chicago’s The Copyrights, who Ben declares “complete douchebags” who “can certainly dish it out, but [they] can’t take it”. Ben continues by stating sarcastically that ska/punk music died out in the 90’s. Bob mentions that musical styles tend to run in cycles and that maybe there will be a resurgence in the genre sometime in the near future, which Ben is quick to dismiss.

Ben inquires about the origins and operations of Dying Scene, asking if it is corporately owned, or indeed run by a team of fans and writers. Bobby compares it to a grass roots operation. Ben goes on to say that if it was corporately owned, he wouldn’t necessarily have a problem with it, reminding everyone that, after all, Screeching Weasel is incorporated too. Weasel continues by telling a story about another popular online news gathering website, leveraged by investors and bought out without informing their staff of contributors, the result of which being one person walking away with a huge cash-grab and then going into seclusion.

Ben tells the story of how he met Bob’s mutual friend, ex-Pink Lincolns frontman, Chris Barrows. The two used to trade their respective bands’ cassettes through the legendary punk periodical, Maximum Rock and Roll, and the US Mail. Ben explains how he had Chris in mind when coming up with the Zannoni character on Baby Fat, elaborating further about what a great job Chris did on the record, singing “God Damn You” in a key that is normally not in Chris’ wheelhouse. Ben discloses that Chris is his oldest friend, not in age, but in longevity. Bob deadpans that Chris is his oldest friend, not in longevity, but in age... On a sidenote, Bob played all of the guitars on Chris Barrows’ 2014 debut solo album Human Being. One notable track on the record is “Not It”, which happens to feature vocals by none other than Mr. Ben Weasel himself. Go find it on iTunes!

Honestly, this synopsis could go on forever. The three blather back and forth relentlessly for over an hour about woman-punching, the current state of the music industry, Ben’s jaded self-interested in his own music, his predilection for Taylor Swift and the Frozen soundtrack, which is a clear indication that Weasel either has a daughter (or really bad taste in music), how PEARS were more than likely manufactured in a corporate board room by guys in suits with pie charts, the political predispositions of a fat, drug-riddled record executive who should stick to writing songs about “boobs and doing blow”, and how Rancid’s Tim Armstrong, who Ben remembers as “Lint”, finally found his voice. To know what else landed in Weasel’s cross-hairs, you’ll simply have to listen to the episode.

This week on Episode 71 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #16), Bob Noxious and Bobby Pickles send another digital smoke signal to Ben Weasel after the Screeching Weasel founder and frontman mentions them on the latest episode of his Weasel Radio podcast. BAND SPOTLIGHT: Florida hardcore surf punkers The Antidon’ts. The two Bobs interview the three-piece (Zac, Mikey and Anthony) about the band’s witty song titles, their upcoming gig at Bowl Bash 20: Skateopia’s annual music festival, which, this year, Green Jellÿ is headlining, plus they premiere a new track off their new record “Buckwild and Foul” - slated for release on June 1st via Bandcamp. Episode 16’s recurring theme: Pig Pen on tour.

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER

With Ben Weasel’s well-documented, self-imposed media blackout still much in effect, Bobby makes a bit of headway when Weasel openly considers a guest-host spot on an upcoming DSR episode. Bob makes an on-air promise to not bring up the “woman punching” ordeal Ben went through several years ago. Bobby then confesses to punching a woman in the face, with a closed fist, while in college, after being ejected from her moving vehicle.

As Bobby is running through some headlines, the very opinionated Bob Noxious voices his displeasure with Bad Brains’ recent decision to record their new record without iconic frontman, H.R. While discussing the recent signing of PEARS to Fat Wreck, Bob begrudgingly informs Bobby about how the music industry works, stressing that there is no man in a cheap suit and a bad mustache, smoking a cigar, waiting to sign every band with a gimmick.

Bob reminisces about his childhood affinity for Gobstopper candies when he hears news of a documentary in the works about the seminal indie punk band Jawbreaker. Then, Bobby reports on a band trying to have their van replaced after being stolen from their own front yard, while not on tour. Bob thinks that GoFundMe campaigns have gotten a little out of control. Still gloating about Dying Scene Radio being mentioned on Weasel Radio, Bobby attempts to deconstruct Ben’s opinion of mainstream media, which dismisses Punk News and other similar news gathering sites as nothing more than “regurgitated press clippings”.

Bobby calls Bob out for not always remembering the facts from week-to-week, then Bob recalls Bobby’s last trip to Florida when Bobby was “chumming the sharks”, vomiting over the edge of the chartered yacht they were on. Bobby concedes the point and asks to move on to the next topic. Bob gives fatherly advice to Set It Off’s recently fired bassist Austin Kerr and then tries to dispel the fact that the band is from his own backyard.

Bob’s self serving needs continue as he gives the rundown of upcoming concert dates for his band, mentioning that his contact in Austin, TX will be at Punk Rock Bowlinginstead of the show. Bobby assures him that maybe next year his band can be included on the bill, to which Bob interjects that he can play this year by finding a 24 hour laundromat and making flyers to be distributed to homeless people and high school students. Bob will be on tour with his band this week on their affectionately penned vehicle “the fart bus” and their first stop is New Orleans, LA. Bobby assumes that all Bob really wants is another head on a stick in his doll garden, when Bob wonders aloud as to what type of conflict he might expect by purchasing a voodoo doll for his girlfriend as a souvenir.

In one of the more bizarre news stories to have come across the wire this week, Brendan Kelly has filmed a video for the AV Club to help promote the Twitter handle @Nihilist_Arbys, which both Bobs agree is quite possibly the best feed Twitter currently has to offer.

While revisiting the subject of band reuniting/breaking up, Bob determines thatSublime with Rome should just move on in a different direction now that Bud Gaugh has left the band. Bobby shows his shear disgust by declaring his utter hate of the first song off the band’s new record. Always inviting controversy, Bob decides to play the song anyway. Then, Bob owns up to not being very well versed in ska, so Bobby recommends that he watch Noisey’s latest episode of “Under The Influence”, which features a full history of 2 Tone music.

This week on Episode 70 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #15), Bob Noxious and Bobby Pickles are back after a one-week hiatus - so that Bob could comfortably celebrate his Cinco de Mayo birthday, while hosting a cordial Mother’s Day for his fifteen baby-mamas, as proclaimed (and miscounted) by Bobby. BAND SPOTLIGHT: Night Gaunts - ska/hip-hop/fun-punk prodigies from Auckland, New Zealand. The two Bobs interview guitarist/lead singer/OCD-engineer-producer Paul Jonassen via the internet from a conference room sixteen hours into the future. Episode 15’s recurring theme: Shameless Plugging.

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER

Bob dismisses the weekly weather report because unlike New York - it’s raining in Florida - so Bobby declares him a selfish weatherman, choosing only to gloat when Mother Nature blows sunshine in his direction.

Bob receives a birthday package of “I Hate Bob” T-Shirts from FAT ENZO - then he gathers all “15” daughters collectively for a family photo of the ages, which elicits many comments in the social media sphere. After summing up more news on out-dated pop-punk icons, Bob wonders aloud if that’s what Bobby thinks about when he’s on the toilet.

More booze-cruise concert news; Bob declares that there is nothing better than getting trashed on a boat with your idols, asking the ominous question, “What can go wrong?” Bobby interjects that most Cruise-liners originate out of coastal Florida port cities, and that is the first problem. See: Florida Man.

Bobby stands in front of the class for the first time in his prepubescent punk rock life, teaching Bob about the original Dropkick Murphy - a professional wrestler turned sanitarium operator. Boston will never be the same. Quick to be equally awkward, Bob shares the story of Flat Stanley, a piece of paper that gets sent around the world by pen-pals. Is there such a thing as pen-pals via the US Mail anymore?

While discussing the recent release of the new Millencolin record, Bobby commends Bob on his pronunciation of the Swedish language, to which Bob replies that he has put together enough Ikea furniture to hold his own. Obviously proud of himself, Bob declares that he is also pretty good with the meatballs.

News of Against Me’s Laura Jane Grace recently sharing the stage with Miley Cyrus, elicits Bobby to mention that ever since Bruce Jenner went gendered, it is now cool to be androgynous. Mistakenly, Bob hears the words “Bruce Gender” and they both acknowledge that it would make a great T-shirt.

Bobby admits to Night Gaunts frontman Paul Jonassen, quite early on during the band spotlight conversation, that he very much enjoys Budweiser Light, to which Paul notes that Bobby must like to “stay hydrated” - a clear indication that Bobby’s beloved beverage is deemed merely flavored water by New Zealanders. The conversation turns to Night Gaunts’ upcoming US Tour, which the band will be embarking on in the coming months. Bob alludes to having heard Paul’s podcast, Dumb Philosophers.

Go Sports! After the interview with Paul, Bobby cannot hide his enthusiasm about the Stanley Cup playoffs. It’s that time of year. The Tampa Bay Lightning and the New York Rangers will face each other in the coveted next round of the playoffs. Expect more hockey talk (that has nothing to do with The Hextalls) in the next few weeks. Sorry punkers.

A recurring theme and trend is starting to become apparent as the episode progresses: shameless self-promotion. Bob carries on, obsessing about grabbing a cold beer with him as his band PIG PEN tours their way through the southwest US over the Memorial Day weekend. Dying Scene Head Honcho, Johnny X, is putting on Hi-Fi Rockfest in Long Beach, California later this year with Dead Kennedys, Street Dogs and Leftover Crackamong others. And of course, we literally cannot forget Bobby Pickles’ entity, FAT ENZO, your source for screenprinting and custom apparel.

As the show gradually draws to a close, Bob mentions that he would not want to be from “Upstate New York” and compares it to living in prison. Like an elephant with an unforgettable memory, Bobby is quick to point out that Bob’s dislike for the area more than likely originates from Bob being punched in the face while on a childhood visit to the Empire State. Bobby then gives a tip on how things get done in the N.Y.C.

This week on Episode 69 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #14), Bob Noxious and Bobby Pickles speak with Tibbie X and Stephxecutioner of the Philadelphia, PA-based S&M punkers, GASH, via telephone from their new rehearsal space. Tibbie explains why the band switched directions with their previous drummer and how all fetishists are welcome - even their own bass player, who is a “furry”. Bobby inquires to what the women’s feet look like, and trying to feign his interest, deflects that he wants to gift Tibbie’s smelly socks to Bob for his upcoming birthday. Bobby admits to being glad the two didn’t have to talk to the guys in the band.

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER:

Bob declares himself a pirate and has the tattoo to prove it! While Bobby delivers the latest news about Blink 182, Bob delivers his thoughts about Matt Skiba and pre-pubescent 13-year old boys. Then, displaying a true lack of class, Bob busts on Bobby’s mom.

While talking about an Israeli band in the news called Sweatshop Boys, Bobby asks if Bob has ever heard of Krav Maga, the self-defense system developed for the Israeli military. Bob reports that he could figure it out by watching YouTube videos, which is obviously where he gains most of his knowledge.

Bobby wonders aloud why so many Swiss punk bands record/perform in English, to which Bob assures him that he could have an easy conversation with the natives. Bob is obviously ignorant to the fact that English is not one of the four national languages of Switzerland: German, French, Italian and Romansh. Talk turns to DAMN BROADS’ slick, new music video for their song “Nature of the Game”. Bobby mentions the juxtaposition of the broads’ red lipstick against the black and white images. Like a true cynic, Bob states: “People can do anything with their GoPros these days.”

Bobby takes to heart the lyrics on a track by UK punkers Wonk Unit, promising to buy more band merch and music whenever he gets the chance. Conversation turns to “political season” - the recent rioting in Baltimore and the earthquakes in Nepal, then Bobby declares that there needs to be more positivity in the White House. Bob mentions a recent poll on dyingscene.com asking about the site’s new layout. What do you think of the new DS layout?

Bob mutilates the name of one of the bands from this week’s playlist: Mutoid Man. After Bobby calls him out on the error, Bob amuses himself by saying the band’s name in different comedic voices. To close out the show, Against Me’s transgendered front-man-woman Laura Jane Grace plays an acoustic cover of “I Keep Forgetting” by Michael McDonald with a Cure loop sampled as the backbeat. Bobby wonders aloud how his/her feet might look.

This week on Episode 68 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #13), Bob and Bobby speak with Joe Piglet - frontman for New York City punk act, The Regressives. After two years in the making, the group has just released their self-titled debut record - which The Bobs give two grubby little thumbs up. Bobby and Joe discover that they used to live in the same neighborhood on Staten Island, which Bobby deems a cesspool. Not to be outdone, Bob admits to living in an “Historic District” of Tampa, surrounded by low-income housing and plush, manicured lawns.

The Bobs discuss their very first quarterly review, which just so happens to land appropriately on lucky episode number thirteen. After a well-deserved tongue lashing by Dying Scene Chief Editor, Johnny X, the pair devise some ways of making the show more entertaining and professional, and boost job confidence. Bob, the consummate sycophant, adapts quickly to the recent revamp of the Dying Scene website, and proclaims his admiration for all the changes.

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. Punk Aid announces details/call for submissions for fourth fundraiser album, “Autism Speaking”; New music videos: The Bunny Gang (ft. Nathen Maxwell of Flogging Molly) release music video for “Sirens Through The City”, The Offspring release music video for “Coming For You”, Kill Lincoln release music video for “Good Riddance to Good Advice”; Notable documentaries: Video: Part One of “The Making of Fat Mike’s Musical”, The Damned documentary trailer released, Underoath reveal new trailer for upcoming documentary “Tired Violence”.

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…

Millencolin – Sense & Sensability

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.

Here is the playlist of this week’s new music.

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 from Compassionate Care Center of CT (one of the six medical marijuana dispensaries in that state) Bobby, on location in the quaint town of Bethel, talks pot policy, prohibition and the endocannabinoid system with licensed pharmacist/dispensary facility manager, Nicole Liedke. They also discuss opiate addiction, the dirty secret behind why marijuana is illegal in the first place and how my idiot friend, Piazza, managed to attain a legal weed card.

Boston-based punk rock prodigies - BarRoom Heroes - stop by Bobby’s mother’s basement, prior to their gig in Bridgeport, to discuss Irish-ness, Boston-ness and the novelty of youth. While these BarRoom Heroes aren’t the only punks in town, they are the most legitimate rightful heirs to the “BarRoom Heroes” name. Dropkick Murphys have publicly vouched for their awesomeness, plus they’re not German, and in fact, they too hail from Beantown.

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.

Matthew Piazza is a hilarious scumbag from Boston, Mass. Drugs used to fuel him, pot still does, as Matt admits, "If it weren't for pot, I'd still be shooting heroine".

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.

Bobby podcasts via Skype with Ronnie Lee Smith aka Roland A. Duby, stand-up comedian, social media personality, and self-proclaimed healer of cancer by way of cannabis oil. Smith learned to cultivate the oil while growing and harvesting marijuana with Jack Herer, American cannabis activist and the author of ”The Emperor Wears No Clothes”. He also made a name for himself in Gallatin County, Kentucky, where he ran for sheriff with the promise of legalizing marijuana to allow farmers to grow the crop for its medicinal uses.

Bobby, along with maties, Cap’n Coletti, Tobia Spinelli and “Bert”, conduct this podcast, on location, while boating along the gulf and intracoastal waterways of Pinellas County, Florida – spanning Treasure Island to Shell Key. 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.

Bobby, along with cohort Coletti, conduct this podcast, on location, from a boat docked along the intracoastal waterways of Madeira Beach, Florida, with Dave Reynard, a self-proclaimed inventor, theorist and dreamer. The original inventor of the cellular telephone (allegedly) and borosilicate glass sex toys, Dave and his company, Knowmind Enterprises, have been featured on many television programs, including, but not limited to, HBO’s Real Sex 27. The three discuss a range of topics, from what it’s like to participate in reality television, to being the “glass dildo king” of the world.

Bobby, along with cohort Martini, conduct this podcast, on location, in the filthy, grimy, seedy cellar of The Sidebar, in downtown Baltimore, MD, with Dave (vocals), Geoff (drums) and Todd (bass) of the bonafide punk rock band, Copstabber, prior to them opening for The Business. 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.

Bobby, along with cohort Martini, hold a trifecta guinea sit-down, on location, from Fluxivity Studios, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, with New York City record producer, John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Thurston Moore, Jemina Pearl, etc), from the control room of the studio, right next to the classic Neve analogue mixing consol, which John uses to generate euphonious gold. 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.

The showcase, which happens on the third Sunday of every month, is organized by soulful singer/songwriter, Lynette Williams, highlighting some her favorite artists, poets and musicians throughout the NYC-area.

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.

Bobby speaks, on location, from Columbus Circle, at the base of the statue of Cristoforo Colombo (which is apparently the literal epicenter of New York City) with Nicole Raymondi, creator of Quotiful, an iPhone app, which integrates meme-making and social media, and provides an outstanding user experience. 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.

On this episode, I podcast with stand-up comedian Calise Hawkins from a stoop just down the block from West 4th Street in Greenwich Village, which is (for all you non-New Yorkers) basically the epicenter of stand-up comedy in New York City. Calise had recently been featured on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and was in the process of working on a new set for another show at which point I was finally able to finally pin her down and make her speak with me. It took some finessing. Shadowing her for most of the night, observing how she performed the same set in front of three totally different crowds and how each crowd’s overall personality was different. For instance, the first room was a medium size room and there was a whole table full of drunken girls in the midst of a bachelorette party, the second was a tiny room with hardly anybody there (perhaps six people total, three couples) and the room felt stale and uninviting, but then the third room had a considerably large crowd. After all this, she had some time to kill before her next set, so she agreed to yap with me for a bit about stand-up comedy, how she got into it, what a person should do if they were interested in getting into, her life, her six year old daughter, writing, random drunkards pissing on street corners with micro-dicks, etc.

His new book, "A Kosher Dating Odyssey: One Former Texas Baptist's Quest for a Naughty & Nice Jewish Girl," is the tale of man from a small town in Texas, who was a raised a Southern Baptist despite his parents' Jewishness, and later on decided to explore his own Jewish background and assimilate into the predominantly Jewish Northeast by courting Jewish women.

His guest, once again, is lifelong friend and pizza man Tobia Spinelli in part 2 of this 2-part series, which also includes drunken insights from the illustrious Ben Coletti. Their discussion covers a range of touchy topics, from Columbus being a Jew-Dago to New Jersey having better pizza than New York to why Toby feels Ben would be a religious figure if he lived 3,000 years ago.

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.

Bobby is on location in the city of angels, Los Angeles -- on the set of the smash hit TLC reality series, “America's Worst Tattoos” -- more specifically, Broken Art Tattoo, sitting in the chair and doing this podcast while receiving his awesome cover-up for the show. His artist, and subject of the episode, is an amazing and talented tattooer by the name of Jeremy Swan, the shop's curator.

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". Burko runs with that intuitively throughout his life.

As for Mr. Jeremy Swan, he is the consummate professional and a true talent. Bobby very much appreciated both of these awesome individuals being on his show. Please make sure you tune in to Season 1 of “America's Worst Tattoos”.

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."

"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.
