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.

“No general method for the solution of questions in the theory of probabilities can be established which does not explicitly recognise, not only the special numerical bases of the science, but also those universal laws of thought which are the basis of all reasoning, and which, whatever they may be as to their essence, are at least mathematical as to their form.” – George Boole

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.

3 reasons people behave the way they do, naked yoga, texting, LGBT issues, and more, on this weeks episode of The Regis Jack Experience

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

The Distractions: Teacher sends naked selfies to students (big shock), paying for sex, vagina lessons, Lorenzo Semple Jr (writer of original Batman movie, Flash Gordon, and lots of other stuff), the queen of penises, and large heavy tables.

The Mind of The Philosopher: My Sifu tells us to leave our worries behind as we enter the training area, but then I start to worry about my worries!

TRJE 332: I’m a Creep and a Weirdo

This week, Creeps, Google Mic Drop, Journalism, and other stuff.

“My team solves problems so much faster with Mic Drop. In fact, we stopped talking to each other entirely!” – Google’s Blog

As you can see from this weeks quote, mic drop may have been the best prank ever that never existed.

The Distractions: Journalism vs tweets, the Bat vs Sups, Pez vs Adults, Nurse vs p****, lightning, and some other stuff.

The Mind of The Philosopher: Recently I’ve been defending men — saying we are not all rapists and creeps. But sadly, after a women tweeted pictures of a guy who was taking pictures down her shirt on the train, I take all of that back. I probably should have quoted Radiohead at the start o f the show.

My other job, my new 99PI challenge coin, nudity, stupidity, and other stuff

“I keep my phone next the bed so I can take pictures of my dreams.” – The Distracted Philosopher

I support 99 Percent Invisible (known as 99PI) and in return I have received a 99PI challenge coin (not pictured above for not so obvious reasons). It’s great and I’ll will show it to you on this audio only podcast.

The Distractions: Garry Handling, Police, Easter, bad NC laws, jellyfish buttholes, a man who lost his leg by being stupid, Britney Spear/Bikini (which works much better if this were a video podcast), building a wall around Colorado to protect the other states from legal weed, and some other stuff.

The Mind of The Philosopher: I tell a story about my other job (teaser: I’m a stripper).

“They stuck me in an institution
Said it was the only solution
To give me the needed professional help
To protect me from the enemy — myself.” – Suicidal Tendencies

This week hitting the snooze button, money in politics, LGBT rights, female anatomy, and other stuff.

Hmmmm. Looks like the blog entry today resembles show notes, how sad.

Opponents (aka elder people who yell at clouds) of the recent LGBT rights ordinance in Charlotte, where they let humans use public restrooms based on their gender identity, claim all humans with a penis are rapists and will attack all women and girls when they get the chance. Let’s hope these people aren’t procreating.

People are spending upwards of a billion dollars to purchase the office of the president of the United States, when they could be support homeless shelters, shelters for abused children, or find a way to remove all genitals from humans to make life simpler.

I propose a pair of shorts with a picture of the female reproductive system is a bit more effective than a t-shirt.

But last, and definitely not least, I let loose on my view of the evil snooze button (It’s actually scarier than a big bad penis).

There. I wrote show notes. I’m not proud of it. Not at all. But hey. It happens.

“The response you get when you ask an unruly child if they want a spanking is vastly different than the response you get when you ask your spouse the same question.” — The Distracted Philosopher

This week blaming people when it’s your fault, angry white men, and other stuff.

Each week, a few hours before the show, I pace back and forth in my studio, reviewing everything I wrote this week, look over my twitter feed, and I talk to myself about what the show should be about. Eventually I hit record and an episode is born. It doesn’t mean what I’m about to say makes sense or is coherent — it just is.

“When Death sends you a “Get Well Soon” card with the words “Get Well” crossed out — it’s time to be concerned.” — The Distracted Philosopher

This week a Periscope update, Facebook emotions, Ghostbusters, and other stuff.

If you thought you were going to find information about the show in this post — which some people refer to as “show notes” — you are not. I use this space for other purposes. For instance, one of the frequently asked questions is how do I choose the image for each week’s post — well, I look in my camera roll on my phone to choose a picture I think represented me during the past week. Or not. It may just be random. I don’t know. As a matter of fact, I didn’t always put pictures in the podcast post. I’m an audio podcast, who needs to see anything? But it helps. It gets people’s attention faster then just words. Unless you say, “You won’t believe what happens next!”

“We’re rehabbed and we’re ready for our fifteen minutes of shame” – Marilyn Manson

This week people dwell on to the past, nudity in movies/tv, periscope, and other stuff.

Hello and Hasa diga eebowai everybody! I am speaking to you from the mythical palace in Sal Tlay Ka Siti, where I believe some All-American prophet will be making things up again and … Ok. So it should be obvious by now I watched Book Of Mormon. And you should to. That is, as long as you are not offended easily. It contains a few bad words, makes fun of religion, but made me laugh until I cried. This has very little to do with the podcast, but I just had to write it. Matt and Trey – geniuses.
