Bobby Pickles' Podcast™️

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.

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". Baldness, tattoos, harlots, the good ole days - Piazza's Dunbar Number serves this discussion fondly and many insane, idiotic topics are covered on this first Live Video edition of Bobby Pickles' Podcast.

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.

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. Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to Carla Anderson, cutter and styler of both male and female hair alike. (Adrien de Martini co-hosts).

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.

Bobby speaks, on location, from the steps of the NYC Public Library (Stephen A. Schwarzman Bldg), with writer, Van Wallach. 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. Also the product of a southern upbringing, Bobby feels he can relate to Wallach on some level. They are a couple of scalawags.

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 on location, at a quaint coffee shop called Elsewhere Espresso, with Aliah Rosenthal, poet, musician and talent-agent, about life growing up on the mean streets of the East Village, an area once generally considered to be the epicenter of the counterculture in New York City -- home to a vast array of artists and bohemians -- the Beatniks arose from this neighborhood, Allen Ginsberg, the father of “the beat generation” was just one of its famous residents, Punk Rock emerged from its slums, etc.

Bobby also reports from the field about a hip, fresh, unconventional concert experience known as Sofar Sounds.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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