“In a World Without Time” #116

Most of us are bound to something we think we understand but can barely even conceive.  We are chained by memories of the past, constrained by worries of the future. We rarely allow our presence of mind to dwell in the present.

Even within that present, most remain imprisoned – and time is the warden. 

Our cell walls consist cell phones, which we utilize to etch the tally marks of mortality into our minds. We willingly cuff our hands to its watches.  We’re born into a life sentence that’s followed by a death penalty.

But times are changing, friends, and there is hope!

For there are some who refuse to be bound by this fear mongering tyrant.  There are some who refuse to serve time!

Take the time to join Stan and Stitch as they embark on the altruistic journey to free us from time and its treacherous shackles!

‘GOTTA HEAR ITS’!

“Time is the great imaginary enemy of our dreams in reality.”

“The mysteries of time are revealed when you are
bored, stuck, and need to take a piss.”

“Life is a Game: Cheat Code Inside!” #115

The intensifying rhythm of an anticipating heart is finally quieted by the sound of the first note meeting your anxious ears. It is only the first note, but it sounds off with the authority of a starting gun initiating the great race of life.

As the first note reverberates down your spine in a familiar rhythm of its own, we go.

and we follow, and we race, and we time…
We try to survive, we can even thrive, but eventually, we will lose…

…and THAT is just musical chairs!

Games have a profound impact on our youth… Does that competitive spirit just… go away with age?

Maybe the game changes,
but life is a game… and it can be won!

From throwback childhood games to existential references and mathematical counter-points… Elon Musk, Conway’s Game of Life, Monopoly, Golf, Stan and Stitch all get in on this debate!

Game on!

‘GOTTA HEAR ITS’!

“How is monopoly a family game?
Dicking people over for money and real-estate?!”

“Eventually we could become talented enough to program
a program to feel for itself

“The Untapped Spirits of Gin, Aliens, and Intuition!” #114


Reading, Writing, Arithmetic…? Naw, we can squeeze more out of our time on this rock my friends!!

Can you go sooo LEFT BRAINED
that you end up in your RIGHT MIND!?!

It is about time we find out.

Let’s explore the wonderful world of intuition, together!

‘GOTTA HEAR ITS’!

“I guess gin is my ‘go-to’, but I don’t like it.
It’s kinda like the girl you date because she’s safe.”

“Intuition isn’t an intelligence thing. It’s a gut thing.
Roam around my gut for a day, it’s the least intelligent thing.”

“How would you respond if he leans in and asks:
‘hey Stitch, can you believe that guy believes in aliens?'”
…”can you believe that aliens believe in you?”

“JFK Gate 31: the Truth behind NEWS and New York Travel!” #113


Do you recall THAT day, my friends!?!

THAT day, unfolding so seamlessly and flawlessly hour by hour that your smart phone can only project “magic” in the forecast?

THAT day, that ‘trending toward perfect’ one, where the sequential events tend to naturally build momentum into a domino fall of happiness. A pattern of statistically significant goodness, raising expectations and a smile.

How about THIS DAY? Deceitfully mirroring the same image of “THAT day”, yet fated to be the ‘Bizarro’ of Cinderella stories.

Have you ever had a day of good things leading up to a dinner of FREE Old Fashions and Premium Steak at a fine New York Establishment — hosted by your best friend………. which ended with plantar fasciitis and shin splints?

No News is Good News…
but No New York Travel is even better!!

On this episode you will hear one of the great New York day trips turn into a nightmare; a nightmare turn into awkward work colleague travel; and awkward work colleague travel turn into heroism and lasting lower-limb problems.

You’ll also learn how to flag down a cab as a New York visitor
trying to catch a night flight, and why we should
have a healthy distrust of the News and Uber.

Tonight, at 11:00p!

‘GOTTA HEAR ITS’!

>> “”and i start my run. and I run. and I run. I start sprinting. and I’m spinning in and out of people with my bags, picking my obstacles, choosing escalators with people or static stairs with none. I was like a ninja warrior.””
>> “That’s substantially cooler than me ordering “Mean Girls” on demand.
>> “cortisol? is that what makes me horny?”

“The Origins of MAGNETISM (and Stitch)!” #112

Friendships. Relationships. Any-ships.

ALL SHIPS are given sail by means of an unseen sea
of seemingly majestic ebbs and flows.

It forms the bonds that pull;
it forged from poles that bind.

From the moment Mother Yin and Father Yang first lovingly united in their division, Polarity was born… and with it, a means to feel the invisible connectivity and infinite possibility between us all: Magnetism!

Or, said another way, checkout Creation explained by Stitch to his children (as per Stan’s request in the pod, as Magnetism gets an important shoutout!)

“The Blissful Ignorance of Social Lemmings!” #111

High-five for mediocrity! Each confident clasp we reward ourselves with today hauntingly echoes the dreams and memories of our tomorrows. Yet, for now, we triumphantly march together in the lemming line.

In an age where success is defined by ensuring the social norms remain undisturbed, Stitch and Stan challenge the protocol!

In this episode, discover the single most important attribute you need to break the lemming line, be yourself, and thusly, the best version of you that you can possibly be!

‘GOTTA HEAR ITS’!

>> “is a lemming a real thing, like an animal?”
>> “i also love that you’re the albert einstein of the toilet seat!”
>> “i know women that skip entire days, or so they say.” — “just women? like it’s such a dirty secret that we sometimes pooh.”
>> “i’d rather use a leaf from the backyard.”
>> “i come with my homeruns, then miss a game or two.”

“The Eiffel Tower & Foie Gras vs. Sebastian & your Hometown!” #110

There are infinite uncertainties in life, BUT, for these four things: your position is unshakeable! For these four things: your perspective is undebatable! In fact, your opinion is not only formed but so fully matured that it has spawned subjective ideas of its own…for these four things!

Emotional Facts + Controversial Opinions =
the sweet elixir for modern-age debates,
good podcasts, and great wars.

Let the PEOPLE and TEMPERAMENTS RISE!
Let the TOWERS and TEARS FALL!!
For better or worse, these four things are going to hit close to home!

The Eiffel Tower.
Foie Gras.
Disney’s Sebastian.
and YOUR HOMETOWN!

And let the infinity war continue!

“GOTTA HEAR ITS!”
>>”do you ever think about the goat when you eat goat cheese?”
>>”Sebastian was a lobster man.”
>>”There’s no minute story about a tiger or lion bro!”

“Hamilton, Vikings, and the Indisputable Evidence of Soul!” #109

Behind all of your priorities, decisions, and daily ‘whatevers’, there is one question. A single, often unnerving, unknown — which dictates your daily grind and puppeteers a million other doubts and anxieties.

Amidst life’s innumerous uncertainties is a sole question… the soul question.

If you’re ready, then join Stan and Stitch as they play the part of philosophical Blues Brothers and cover the soul, man!

“The Transformative Exotics of Pull-out Couches, and Music!” #108

In a new day’s first blink, as your eyelids open with the slow reveal of a broadway curtain, you find yourself emancipated in a beautiful meadow. A scene which can only be described by a feeling, one of butterfly wings kissing your cheeks as they rhythmically waft the smells of endless possibility and honeysuckle dew…

Now, replay that imagery as the Jaws theme is overlaid on top of it!

Beautiful. Manipulative. Impactful.
Let’s unpack the Exotics of Music!

Where to begin? How did it start? Is there an end? Does it even matter as long as there is a pattern between?

In this episode you will (a) discover where music first began*, (b) be inspired by the music you can tune into with no tech required*, and (c) decide whether Stan can sell you on a pull-out couch at a friend’s New York apartment being part of a romantic get away.

“The Future, Big Macs, and Dog Poop… in a Beautiful Little Box!” ~Stan & Stitch

4,000 years of history was slowly written between the convention of writing and the invention of the printing press.

Nearly 300 years ticked away between the steam engine and space flight.

Fewer than 30 years could blink before mobile technology followed the birth of the internet.

The exponential rate of human innovation is certain… but our future, is not.

Is the prospect of our future fascinating or frightening? Is our potential exciting or alarming?

As robots rise and economies fall, we explore tomorrow together.

But, without getting too ahead of ourselves, a neighborhood dog pooping in your flower bed will always be a problem which, thankfully, has a timeless solution!

Luck, Karma, & Naked on the Streets of New York!

Have you doubted Luck, questioned Karma, or ended up Naked on the streets of New York? 

If you answered “yes” or “no” to any of the above, then you’ll be glad your friends Stan and Stitch were here with you today!!

Together we explore the art of DUMPSTER DIVING and the humility of super-star comparisons…

Together we face a little about lotto, and a lot about luck!

Owls vs. Ravens? Richard Dreyfuss vs. Justin Timberlake?

The answers you know will help us grow!

You’re welcome in advance! 🙂

The Unenviable Life of Washing Machines, and Materialism

The Unenviable Life of Washing Machines and Materialism 2018-10-14 at 10.48.10 AM.png

Materialism is a disease that has infested society since the dawn of time… It is important we work to recognize how it shapes the lives of ourselves and our loved ones.

It is also important to pay homage to your appliances which work ever so hard for you as the unsung heroes behind the scenes in your daily grind.

Have you considered the Unenviable Life of Washing Machines, and Materialism?

If you have, you probably should have done this podcast first…

If not… let’s consider the mystical and magnificent roles that both have in our day to day lives together!

Keeping Trust, Needing Love

Trust those who keep it;

Love all who need it.

When your kids ask… “What’s life all about?”

What’s the hardest question a kid has ever asked you?

The simplest questions sometimes seem to be our hardest to answer, especially when children are doing the asking!

This was my attempt at an “ALL ENCOMPASSING” response to that question: “INFINITY BACKWARDS”:

What it takes to Love… from falling in to staying in

those who fall in love, learn to kiss nice and hug tight.

those who stay in love, learn how to fight right.

uncharacteristically concise for me….why?

knowing what it takes is simple.

doing what it takes? the second that feels simple, one of you is not trying hard enough! 🙂

 

Happy 2017 world!
