There's No Time To Explain #5: Kyle Wyner

kyleThis episode I record myself getting a haircut by Kyle Wyner, my hairstylist of over a dozen years. This recording takes place in the very busy Cruz Vincent Salon in midtown Ventura and there is a lot of background noise, but give it a chance. Kyle is a very outgoing and engaging guy who is a familiar face in Ventura. We talk shit about Supercuts, obviously, and then talk about the "Bakersfield Sound" an influential style of country music and what Buck Owens and Korn have in common. Kyle talks about the value of ego over attitude when building confidance. Talk turns to the racial make up in California, the sad plight of Native Americans and why Mexicans grow mustaches. We rave about local music and some of the people that make the Ventura scene unique. Kyle and I fundamentally disagree about Lady Gaga. I rant about Kesha's music contract woes and wonder why we undervalue musical talent in record contracts.
 
Some local Ventura music mentioned by Kyle:
 
Cruz Vincent Salon
1536 E Main St, Ventura, CA 93001
(805) 628-3630

There's No Time To Explain #4: Lisa Bean aka Boh Nellis

bohnellisI have a conversation with Lisa Bean, whom you might be familiar with as Boh Nellis, host of The Spliff Potcast.  She’s an advocate for safe, legal access to medical marijuana.  We talk about state and local politics and guess at the various reasons why the stigma against marijuana use still exists. We talk about her upbringing with an adoptive family and what it was like to reconnect with her biological mother after many years.  Lisa is embarking on a career as a voice over actor and we discuss the ins and outs of her craft. I rant about Chloë Grace Moretz. We talk about the relative dangers of marathon running compared to pot smoking and why people love shoving bacon and cheese down their throats. We play an improv version of the segment, “I’m Not An Expert, But…” and I take a moment to review a blog post I wrote about Donald Trump a few weeks back that suggests he really wants to drop out of the race and wonder if it's still relevant. (Spoiler: I think it is.)

There's No Time To Explain #3: Julia San Bartolome

11846693 10153568310046204 1464221222279253473 nI have a conversation with Julia San Bartolome, three-time winner of Food Network's Cupcake Wars, who happens to be my cousin. We talk about winning and losing Cupcake Wars, her love life and why food is such a personal experience. She talks about who is eye candy in the local band The Army of Freshmen and why the Poseidon Brewing Company is the best in Ventura. We chat about dating in the age of Tinder and our family's idiosyncratic food culture and the supremacy of enchiladas entomatadas. She helps me conceive of a new segment I'll call, "Isn't that the one where..." where she guesses at the plots of movies she hasn't seen. She even coins the word, "catapulyst," Sarah-Palin style (catapult+catalyst, obviously.) I rant about the blowback over the hilarious Bernie vs. Hillary meme and get everybody to calm the fuck down.

There's No Time to Explain #2: Larry Mendoza

LarryMI have a conversation with Larry Mendoza of the Road to Reason TV Show and The Beltway Atheists. I ask the question, "What's Wrong with the Liberal Left?" Larry lists three issues that we only begin to discuss when he casually mentions he owns 23 snakes. We cannot help but discuss snakes (and what kind of metal Larry listens to when he's hanging with his snakes) for the next 45 minutes. Larry gives us the first installment of the segment, "I'm Not An Expert, But..." where he tells Stephen Hawking to get off his lazy tush and get cranking on figuring out the universe.  I wax poetic about the meaning of love in a vast and chaotic cosmos and give a movie review of The Revenant, with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy, based on the true story from American history of mountain man Hugh Glass, a fur trapper who survived being mauled by a grizzly to be left for dead by his companions. The episode ends with a live (and poorly sung) recording of the song "Abraham Lincoln" by my old band, The American Cheese Band, which has a verse I wrote about Hugh Glass.

Larry mentions these bands during the podcast:

Eluveitie (Celtic folk metal hailing from Switzerland)

Amon Amarth (Melodic Viking death metal)

Ensiferum  (Finnish Folk Metal)
