“People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.”

Winnie the Pooh

Revealing words. Bear truths…
The philosophy of our favorite teddy, reppin’ that 1-double-0 acre wood!

Unrivaled is Pooh Bear’s knack for stating something so profoundly simple that we are left with nothing but the simply profound.

Pooh, as he so often does, operates in a fashion that demands we conclude he is delightfully ignorant, or better yet, just a “Silly Old Bear!”…

But friends, perhaps it is we who fast-forward past his simple genius, his bear smarts. Perhaps we are focusing on the wrong word and Pooh is simply ignoring the right one. Maybe it is us who carelessly hone in on his use of “nothing”, as Winnie casually escapes our emphasis on the “impossible”!?!

So… how do we accomplish the impossible?

Well… if Winnie the Pooh, Yoda, Taoism and Nike all agree on an approach, Just Do It! (per Yoda, there is no try)

‘GOTTA HEAR ITS’!

“You know you’ve made it when your Last Name serves as a noun, an adjective and, especially, a verb!”

“I’ve never considered anything I’ve done impossible — I’ve just never even considered the possibility.”

“Greatness is not a destination.  Greatness is a decision.”

“Not-so-Smart Phones!” #120

Your most treasured memories are entrusted in them. 
They are your go-to for guidance, when you’re feeling lost.
No matter how obscure the question; you look to them for answers.
They know your interests, and share some common ones.

Whether delivering a laugh, or drawing out a good cry
You know that you’ve got ’em, right by your side!!

Kinda wild how we all became best friends with our cell phones, right?!?

Maybe you called it…?
Either way, connect with Stitch and Stan as they unravel the ONE device that we keep so close our other cells get jealous!!

It has been called a technological marvel and a necessary evil
…but is it technically evil or necessarily marvelous?

‘GOTTA HEAR ITS’!

(1) “What is one fun use of the mobile device? I mean fun too, not like emergency contact information.” [2] “The Weather app is fun! I like to know what’s happening!” (1) “Not my definition of fun, but okay…”

“One time a phone is always safe to use — and more efficient too…?When you’re taking a dump! !”

“Everything from Nothing and Hot Yoga!” #119

Have you ever had a moment, so beautifully malleable, that today’s outcomes seem to be yours to cast in the vastness of tomorrow’s best potential possibilities?!

Where society’s rigor, for a moment, can be molded as seamlessly as an infant can of Play-Doh?

Where you can fearlessly face and relentlessly forge the future, with the requisite conviction of Plato?

Where you can shape it, you can bend it, but you will never fold.

For you can manipulate the clay-of-today with the certainty that tomorrow will bring nothing less than a hardened state of your original vision… Memorializing your craft, as if your acts were an everlasting statue gifted to the past… Forever capturing the greatness of the goodness in that single, beautifully malleable, moment.

Have you had that moment? If so, give us a heads up next time!!! Because today Stan and Stitch simply attempted to play with some Play-Doh, which was then overtaken by Plato, who seemingly swayed Michelangelo to shape the possibilities into something far greater than either of us could have perceived!

Friends, join our #RiseBeforeFall campaign… get something outta nothing and so, so much more!!

‘GOTTA HEAR ITS’!

“Sure, I’d want to live forever if I could keep my youth and health”…
…”I don’t know man, vampires never seem too happy!”

“He was taking the ‘do as I say, not as I do’ approach to hot yoga? What a bastard!”

“A smile is a million dollars in a world of nothingness.”

Friends, do you recall?

There were 4,000 years between the written language and the printing press.

300 years between the steam engine and reaching outer space, 

30 years between the internet and mobile technology.

Friends, can you imagine?

If there were 8 babies, an island,

and nothing more but a spring of hope?

How would society (re-)evolve differently?  Would history repeat? Would the New York Stock Exchange be recreated (warning: a topic of heated debate ensues between Stan and Stitch)

Join us and let’s rebuild this baby to be even better, together!

“The Gentlemen of Chivalry and Couples Massages” #117

The Chivalrous Gentleman’s Oath:

For every chair too close, 
four hands to lift it.
For every door left unopened, 
an “after you” to fix it.
For every pathway too puddled, 
two jackets to bridge it.
And if laughs are a present,
may these gentlemen gift it!

Join Stan and Stitch as they ‘tip their brow’ to some of modern day’s most chivalrous questions: 

“Is Chivalry dead? Where should it be resuscitated?”
“Does Chivalry have a gender?”
“What places will chivalry never exist?”

^^ plan accordingly friends! It’s a trip… with standing room only.  

What’s a gentleman to do?!

“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!

“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!

“How is monopoly a family game?

  • Conway’s game of life
  • Elon Musk and probability of base reality
  • Can you program a robot to have a soul?

“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!
