RMP – Ep b68: Bryce Castillo is the Fu**ing Problem

Bryce Castillo (@brycas) is very connected…

…to the Internet, at least.

It’s a long episode, but it’s full of social commentary and laughter…two things that go hand-in-hand.

Show notes:

  • Bryce is a Twitchie, or a Twitchy, or maybe a Twitchee
  • Kent and Amos watched the Super Bowl and live tweeted the whole thing
  • Amos reached Paragon level in Diablo III
  • Bryce has one of the coolest jobs ever producing Scam School
  • Amos, unsurprisingly, found frustration dealing with coworkers
  • Kent’s congratulations can’t be constrained by time-space
  • Super Bowl 50
    • 50th Super Bowl is not the same as the 50th Anniversary
    • Numbers are funny things
    • Why wasn’t Metallica playing at the Super Bowl? Because they rock!
      • Well, except for this part.
  • Flash will be (kinda) missed
  • Google Fiber is doing cool things for low-income housing
  • TED Talks:
  • Bryce discusses recent rumors and his move to Austin
  • We prove we know NOTHING of the Amish, but we have ideas for them
  • Gender is a problem
  • Amos saw Deadpool…and you should, too. Even if you don’t know anything about the character. Just don’t watch it at the Osan theater

RMP – Ep b54: Why So Beta?

There are ways to get more done each day…

RMP – Ep b50: Shadows of the Steve Perry Empire

We invite Steve Perry to chat with us…

…the author, not the ‘rock’ star.

One of the most under acknowledged and versatile writers around, Steve has us rolling through his tales of ghost writing, meeting Leonard Nimoy, and his first ever death threat (it’s a thing, apparently). Also, body-building sex slaves.

RMP – Ep b49: The Difference Between Men and Boys

The universe is really big…

…and so are Sony’s plans for the PSVR.

RMP – Ep b44: Can’t You Two Just Get Along?

Our ‘cast is gaining listeners…

…and we appreciate both of you.

Kent returns to explains his crazy last week. Amos gets a taste of the early morning blues.

Show notes:

– Kent’s camping trip interrupted the podcast, so his new job interrupted his camping trip. Seems fair.

– TED Talks:

– Both of us watched Rich Benjamin: My road trip through the whitest towns in America

– If the subject of social segregation, please read Black Like Me

– Kent did NOT go out and watch Fantastic Four at his first opportunity

– He did, however, line up some great guests for the Ritual Misery Podcast…including Mikal Abdullah next week

– Amos improv group, 7MP Improv, held their first BattleProv…more info and possibly some clips coming soon

RMP – Ep b40: Mikal Abdullah Is An Ass-Kicking Geek

RMP – Ep b22: Droning On About Drones

We welcome a niece and mourn a great publication…

…first world problems, we know.

Mad Max couldn’t keep a 9 year old’s attention

– Kent placed well in his karate tournament and witnessed a black belt performing a cartwheel during competition

– Kent is fascinated with drones and frustrated with the inaction and lack of acceptance by the FAA

RMP – Ep b21: Addictive Dysfunction

Podcasting is hard…

…but that’s what she said.

This week we talk about talks about something most people don’t want to talk about.

Show notes:

– Kent made gokyu, took his son rollerskating, and finished the weekend watching the WWE Royal Rumble

– Amos took his wife to see Rodney Carrington and prepped watching the Mad Max trilogy

The Podcast Method on the 5by5 network is highly recommended for beginning podcasters

– Kent was a bit underwhelmed by the Fantastic Four teaser

– Amos watched a few TED talk videos, and these three convinced him to give up pornography:

The great porn experiment | Gary Wilson | TEDxGlasgow

– The demise of guys?| Philip Zimbardo | TED2011

– Why I stopped watching porn | Ran Gavrieli | TEDxJaffa

– We take the TED Talk Challenge…well, we kinda created the challenge, but whatever…

– We officially introduce ritualmisery.com

– If you’d like to share your unique military stories, please let us know. We’d like to share your story and help others going through similar situations.  Also, if you have a situation you’d like help with, we’d love to help!

– 2004 BL86 came a little too close for Kent’s comfort and his discomfort was supported by the craziness found at abovetopsecret.com

– Thank you Richard Gunther for the amazing feedback!

– Anthony/Amos/Ethan needs to pick out a damned name
