When I hear someone say, “Get A Life” it screams of a strong lack of knowledge or awareness about what they are yelling about. Also, just in case you didn’t know, “lacking knowledge, information, or awareness about something in particular” is a definition of the word ignorant. I only say that because If I say someone is ignorant up front, people tend to think I’m insulting them when in fact … well, hopefully you see the irony.

To learn more about what I’m talking about (hint — it’s Pokemon Go and Fantasy Football) give me a listen. It won’t take long. Just as long as it takes to have a healthy bowel movement.

When tragedy happens, people pretend to care. They say Black Lives Matter or Blue Lives Matter (which btw, blue is not a race, it’s a job) or All Lives matter. But if all lives really mattered, wouldn’t we be trying to help those who need help? Wouldn’t we be trying to feed the homeless? Or … listen to the show to hear more.

Also this week, I explain which lives matter, why llamas are important, how Pokemon Go will completely take over the world because you got to catch them all, a gay trek controversy (fyi, I was never surprised that Scotty was gay), robots forced to kill, and other stuff.

“A lot of things happened this week and there are a lot of things to talk about. I’d like to start off with — stop letting your kids watch TV shows/movies in the car. Let them look outside. Give them a book. Talk to them. Help them learn. God is not in the TV. ‘The evolution will be colorized’. Buy one get one free. Lather rinse repeat. That’s right. I said, lather, rinse … repeat.” – The Distracted Philosopher

TRJE 344: Happy Anniversary

This week I celebrate an anniversary, auto pilot, snap chat down, trending scares, and more, on this weeks episode of The Regis Jack Experience.

I can’t believe I’ve been podcasting for 8 years (since 6/29/2008). This means I have been able to consistently, well pretty consistently, week by week create something new. This podcast has forced me to strain my creative muscles over and over again. Happy anniversary to me.

Also this week, Mel Brooks was trending last week and that terrified me, the first crash by an autonomous car that is NOT autonomous (not even close), SnapChat went down for an hour creating a tremor in the force, and other stuff.

TRJE 343: Rank, Title, Status

This week titles and degrees, brain-eaters, ethics of cars, vaping talents, and more, on this weeks episode of The Regis Jack Experience.

People who hold a rank, title, or special status feel they are better then the people who don’t. I know your saying that you have a degree/title, but don’t think that way. But really? Think about it. Trust me, you do. But that just means you recognize the hard work you put into archiving that title. Don’t be creeped out. It’s ok. Unless you call yourself a Prophet — you my friend, are an idiot.

Also this week, brain-eating amoeba’s, I go on (yet again) on the ethics of auto drive cards (and how they won’t need them), a guy who can suck and blow has talent, and other stuff.

“In many religions, God (or whatever name the ultimate good goes by) only accepts certain people and demeans others. Those Gods judge you by race, gender, sexuality, whatever (the list varies by religion). I find this very disturbing. But in these same religions, Lucifer (or whatever name the ultimate evil goes by) accepts everyone, regardless of race, gender, sexuality — regardless of anything. I also find this very disturbing.” – The Distracted Philosopher

TRJE 342: Do You Hear Voices?

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.

Picture Unrelated – this was just somewhere I ate this week

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.

TRJE 337: You’re Not Limited to 2

George Washington’s Farewell Address, Nudity, Periscope, Cement Shoes, and more, on this weeks episode of The Regis Jack Experience

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.
