This week YOUR perception is YOUR reality, “never nude” Link, Microsoft weed, and more, on this weeks episode of The Regis Jack Experience.

I really wanted to avoid talking about rapists, terrorists, Orlando, or anything else that’s been saturating news feeds recently — so I did — mostly.

When you perceive the world around you differently than others you are branded as having hallucinations (visual, audio, any of your senses). But don’t worry, it’s actually normal. Hallucination is just another word for saying you perceive something that it not shared by others. This doesn’t mean it’s wrong or that you are crazy. Maybe your brain is tuned into a frequency that others can’t get. What’s important is that what you perceive is your reality. Also, don’t tell others you see or hear things they do not, you’ll be burned at the stake or beaten with rocks and sticks. It seems people are terrified that you perceive something they don’t and it must be the work of the devil or God — in this case both are equally terrifying.

Also this week, Nintendo announced Link (from the Legend of Zelda Games) is a “never nude” (I didn’t realize that was in question); some lonely unmarried guy with too much time on his hands juices McDonald’s burgers and fries (why oh why did this seem like a good idea); the Charlotte observer uses a headline that sounds like it may be a positive story or horrible rape tragedy (I couldn’t tell); a transgendered woman takes a camera crew in the bathroom (which seems a bit odd to me because I only bring them in the shower); Microsoft add weed to their cloud (sort of); is it just me or does every picture of Kayne look like he is crapping his pants?; and other stuff.

TRJE 341: That Was Easy

This week difficult problems have no easy solution, and more, on this weeks episode of The Regis Jack Experience.

There is a problem with our culture today, perpetuate by the internet culture. The culture of NOW, instant gratification, and someone else tells you want to think. The culture that has no time to read, listen, watch, or learn the whole story. They just want to know the beginning — and then believe they know the entire story — as if it was fact. Or the middle, or the end. It doesn’t matter. This needs to change.

I recorded this episode after the Orlando tragedy. People are going to blame religion, they are going to blame guns. But we need to blame the individual. Sure, without guns (or with tighter gun restrictions) the terrorist may have killed LESS people (and that would be better). But I’d rather they killed ZERO people. None (that would be best). Let’s work on that problem too. It’s not easy, but it needs to be resolved.

Vacation. Beach. That’s where I was when I should have been recording a podcast. But don’t fret listeners I have created an episode which contains the all of the cold open quotes from 2016 plus a rerun of the part of Episode 300 where I say each and every title of my podcast (all 300 of them). I enjoyed putting these clips together, hopefully you will enjoy listen to them (again).

Thanks to everyone for listening. And if you’re not listening, it doesn’t matter. I’d keep talking anyway.

TRJE 338: Season Ticket’s to Graduation

Graduation Ceremonies, Peeing, Social Media Background Checks, and more, on this weeks episode of The Regis Jack Experience

I had the honor of attending 2 graduation ceremonies this week. And while they may be a bit dry and last way to long (with over 1000 students for each one), they are important and I was happy to be a part of them. The graduation ceremony, much like a wedding or funeral (did you know you can’t spell funeral without “real fun”?) exists so we can show support for friends and loved ones and to be a part of a change of life. The old is now over and you have the new to look forward to. But these ceremonies were missing a “commencement” speech. So this week, you can hear the rough draft of the speech I’d like to give to a graduating class.

Also this week Jennifer Lawrence pees, photographers are always looking for naked women (and that shocks no one), woman falls off cruise ship, the federal government is searching public social posts in their background checks (and I may be fine with that), Calvin Klein uses an up skirt panties crotch shot for advertising and empowering women everywhere, selling a murder weapon, Oreo bagels, man doesn’t change his shirt for 2 days, and other stuff.

George Washington, back in 17 hundred and … something could already see the dangers of political parties; how they will just work to strike revenge against each other, how they will do things for their parties agenda and say it’s for the good of the people (e.g. This years SCOTUS vacancy), and how these systems, in other governments, have led to horrible atrocities. He was right.

Also this week, a NC man refused towing service to a woman with a Bernie Sanders bumper sticker because he felt “the Lord” wanted him to leave her stranded, your Periscope broadcasts (of illegal activity and legitimate stuff) can now live on forever, cement shoes found on a dead body, streaking through London, vagina, and other stuff.

TRJE 336: Shut The Front Door

The Suicide Hotline, Protesting, NASCAR bullies, bathrooms without laws, waiting for Viagra in SC, and more, on this weeks episode of The Regis Jack Experience

People are constantly treating people like less the human beings because of their sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, politics (which is actually the same as religion), and all sorts of other reasons and this leads people towards suicide as the solution. So, If you feel you are in a crisis, whether or not you are thinking about killing yourself, please call the Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). People have called them for help with substance abuse, economic worries, relationship and family problems, sexual orientation, illness, getting over abuse, depression, mental and physical illness, and even loneliness. It’s FREE, and it could save your life.

Also this week I provide an interesting fact about the use of public bathrooms (before NC’s HB2), a 24 hour wait on Viagra in SC, NASCAR bullies Tony Stewart and then admits he was right, girls fight back, how the media doesn’t understand the concept of protesting, and other stuff.

This week the world lost the “Purple Yoda” (aka Prince, aka The Artist, aka lots of other names) and it hit me pretty hard. I have been a die hard fan since 1984, collecting music, bootlegs, articles, vials of sweat, etc. “That skinny mother fucker with a high voice” (his words, not mine) changed my life – because I wanted to be him. Unfortunately I have almost zero musical talent, so I could only dream of my fictional future through his music, videos, and life. But I have a confession — I don’t like the song Purple Rain. I’m not saying it’s a bad song (it’s beautiful, and impressive when you learn how it was recorded), but it’s been soooooooo overplayed that it’s killed the part of my brain that likes that song. It’s also made it so I can’t taste raspberries.

Also this week, the dark underbelly of the hand dryer industry, Dr Pepper is still with us, SCOTUS evaluates the legality of breath/blood tests without a warrant, Snapchat’s blackface filter (it was actually brown), Donald Trump says something sane (I was just as surprised as you), men stealing soda from McDonalds, a naked restaurant, LGBT and bathrooms (again), overseas people are being killed by electricity, and other stuff.

I’ve learned that ‘Avatar’ (aka the blue CGI movie) came out in 2009 and while James C has yet to produce a sequel in 7 years, he’s saying he will make 4 more ‘Avatar’ sequels. I have 3 words for him: please, don’t, unobtainium.

This week I explain what I believe are the 3 reasons people are jerks and how there is probably no way to ever overcome it. There is some swearing involved in this, so I can’t talk about it here. You’ll have to listen. And I was distracted by Kids with no friends (but fake ones on the internet), deleted tweets, Canada says no to American suicides, James somebody is making 4 Avatar sequels, flags are cool, grammar correctors are rude, Nazi flags, naked yoga, and other stuff.

“There’s a thing about drugs that I think has to be said, which is there is no moral component to a drug. The drug doesn’t care if it gets you high or it doesn’t get you high. The drug doesn’t care if it decimates your society or if it causes you pain and hardship and kills your family. The drug doesn’t care. Drugs are a neutral substance. People control drugs, take drugs, lie about drugs, lie about what drugs do, make them the boogeyman. It’s not really about the substance, it’s about the people. If you educate the people … then the drugs will go away.” – Craig Ferguson

leaving your worries behind, nudity, selfies, and other stuff

“I think Twitter should increase its character limit by one every thirty days and see if anyone really cares” @regisjack

I’ve learned (from Dave Delaney dot me) that my podcast is known as a “Ramble-Cast” — a podcast where one person shares what’s on their mind. Seem legit. But also makes me sound like those idiots on the youTube who complain about everything and that my show might not be professional produced (aka sounds like some 30 something in his mother’s basement). I am neither of these. JSYK
