"LOL.  The Joe Rogan Experience is the only podcast that I listen to.  I haven't listened to every single episode but I did go back and listen to every episode that featured Duncan Trussell.  Those two guys go deep, and I mean DEEP.  At first I was hesitant to start listening to the Joe Rogan Podcast, because I thought he was just some jackass that hosted UFC and Fear Factor, but man was I wrong.  Here is a taste (2:12) -- Joe compares humans to bacteria:

Here is another hit (4:39) -- Joe discusses Hippies and lazy people:

Gosso: I've listened to this guy and I'm a little confused about what you like about him. What come across to me is a huge contradiction between what he is saying and the way he acts. Maybe that's a part of his appeal and there is some irony being expressed consciously. I just don't see it. He seems irony deficient. An example: he's sitting in the back of his huge gas guzzling limo talking about human beings as bacteria destroying life. He seems disconnected from his compassion. He just seems like a pretty smart thug who lacks heart but is good at going for the shock value, the kill. Also, he's is not saying anything new or original to me whether it be about religion, DMT or the Kali Yuga. When he talks about his humility, it doesn't ring true to me. Seems more like the toxic mimic than the real deal. :-[

Well, Joe introduced me to a few new areas of thought, and he has been a good ally on my quest for "knowledge".  I guess I have to thank him for that.  He is also usually fairly open to new ideas and theories.  But I agree that he says a lot silly things, although he is just probing for answers, and I feel the same way. 

It's too bad you don't like him...he's not for everyone.

Gosso: Thanks for not taking my reaction to Joe personally. I can see how he can serve as a catalyst for new ideas and I'll leave it at that.

It's pretty difficult to get me mad or pissed off.  ;D  Considering that just over 4 or 5 months ago I thought that any kind of psychedelic was the devil, I think I'm doing pretty good.

How about a little Grateful Dead to tide things over (4:13):

Ah, that's very nice. Thank you , Gosso, my sanity and faith in mankind has been restored. Here's some Franklin's Tower (4:40):

This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but with a bureaucrat

Belief is the death of intelligence. As soon as one believes a doctrine of any sort, or assumes certitude, one stops thinking about that aspect of existence

That reminded me of Yo-Yo Ma and Lil Buck.  It's a combo of ballet plus break-dancing set to the music of Yo-Yo Ma (3:46)

No kidding!  It cannot be healthy putting that much pressure on your ankles.

Well, I finally got to use the word 'shenanigans' in a post, and it reminded me of this classic clip from the movie Super Troopers (0:30)

Haha, that was good stuff.  But why was his buddy filming him while playing Wii Olympic Ski Jumping.  Just doesn't seem right.  The only time I would record someone playing the Wii was if it involves a beautiful girl and a hula-hoop game. (0:49)

Warning: don't watch if you are offended by underwear and a nice butt.  :)
