We take freedom for granted and we don't actually realize how free we really are. Sure we might be fighting for our rights. We might be fighting for our livelihood, but we have the freedom to fight. In this episode I talk about a movie that I was in called "Don't Shoot! I'm The Guitar Man" a true Story about rock and roll legend, Buzzy Martin, who dedicated his time to teach the prisoners of San Quentin music. As I read Buzzy's book and the script my eyes were opened and the precious gift of freedom is what we need to take care of.
I also talk about the Podcast of the Day which is "Barley and Me" with comedian Ben Rice, a wonderful podcast about beer. Do I need to explain more?
In case you were wondering who made my theme song, it was created by Mike Glyphix Abdelmessih who will be coming out with some phenomenal beats for some promising artists. To see his work, go to his Instagram account @shubrawi.
And finally, I want to thank Wacist Webb (who isn't a racist and thinks racism is wack) for being my producer today. You can also listen to him on the Videogame BANG! podcast.

The holiday season is finally here.. and no I'm not going to take a dump on this or ridicule the meaning of Christmas.. I actually love the Christmas Season, minus the shopping, plus drinks and holiday movies equals happy Mike. In this episode I talk about what my favorite holiday movies are... Die Hard, enough said. I also talk about how actor/comedian Ryan Boyd and comedian/veteran Isaac Ames took it upon themselves to drive to Standing Rock and be one of the many on the front lines protecting the Sioux Tribe.
These two guys are local heroes and we should follow in their footsteps. Whatever you need to do to get involved, get involved. Dont worry about Donald Trump taking our rights away, Just act like Kevin McCallister from Home Alone and protect your rights with a bb gun, some paint cans, and a tarantula.
