"What Does The Man Get From Modern Relationships" by Coach Greg Adams

Image
A married woman sends another man topless pics behind her husband's back and hints at having a fling in Las Vegas while her husband gambles. This same woman starts an argument with the guy she is sending the pics to, arguing about the "sanctity" of marriage and that "marriage is forever..." The irony is not lost on this one. Hyper-gamy is the act of marrying someone of higher status than yourself. Women are hypergamous by nature. It is in their DNA to seek out a person who in their mind would be the best possible provider that she can get. Even if this person is not the same person that she already made a life-long commitment to. One of the dangers in marrying young is that a few years down the line, your spouse may no longer see you as the "best" that she can get. When she finds a new mark, she will drop you faster than a piece of salad at an all you can eat BBQ. She wants that rich, savory meat on the grill that she can't touch. Not the flimsy

I think everything happening with Gamestop and the stockmarket is hilarious and I support it 100%. I am personally going to avoid the shitshow, but will be cheering things on from the sideline.

"I Don't Understand This World"

Image
NOFX proverbial "stock" has been on a steady decline in my books, but I can't help but have one of the recent demo tracks released in their "2019" subcription series stuck in my head. I think some people are starting to realize that who they voted for is going to be far worse than the guy they screamed against. My two cents.

Ok, I will admit that this new album by The Network is growing on me.

"Surprise, Surprise" by Billy Talent

Image
Billy Talent are a highly under-rated punk / alternative rock band from Ontario, Canada. The lyrics to their song "Surprise Surprise" was a bit ahead of it's time as well. The problems they discuss are nothing new but they have definitely been magnified by recent events. Lyrics: "You got the look, but not the credit They wrote the book on how to sell it From cigarettes to skinny jeans You got the money, they got the means Oh you upper class daughters and working class sons It's hard to save a dollar the way the world runs You're the target market of a corporate joke It won't be so ironic when your daddy is broke Surprise surprise! Surprise surprise! You're much better looking when you're in disguise Surprise surprise! Surprise surprise! And this revolution has been brought to you by...   Just gotta stop, so you can mimic The tortured artist, the jaded cynic The latest gadget is just a gimmick Another sucker born every minute Well I'm sick of t

Who Did It Better? The Network vs Pinhead Gunpowder

These two songs share an identical riff. One song is written and sung by Billie Joe Armstrong and the other song is definitely not also written and sung by Billie Joe Armstrong.     "Walkin' Catastrophe" by Pinhead Gunpowder "Popper Punk" by The Network

Pop Punk Radio Show: Episode 6 - Hockey Punk Playlist

Image
  *BONUS* Episode 6 Hockey Punk Playlist. Ok, so this is really just a recycled playlist from the Pop Punk Podcast episode archive. That's why it is being released as a bonus episode and not part of our regular release schedule. Bands and artists featured in this playlist include: Green Day, White Stripes, Locksley, The Fratellis, Plain White T's, Bouncing Souls, Pennywise, The Briggs, Dropkick Murphys, Misfits, Riverdales, The Boils, Rednex, The Zambonies, Millencolin, The Vandals, Goldfinger, Kernkraft 400, & Organized Rhyme NHL hockey is back! The 2021 season began last week, albeit with a slightly different format and a shorter season. This year, all teams will play 56 games, as opposed to the regular 82. Divisions have been re-aligned in order to compensate for pandemic safety measures. Including one division which is made up entirely of Canadian teams in order to prevent teams from necessitating travel across the US border.  The pandemic has certainly took a lot of th

Reacting to "MOST HATED ARTISTS: Tom MacDonald..." by PunkRockMBA

Image
Is Finn McKenty racist? Well, he certainly said some racist things in a recent video while attempting to guilt listeners of Tom MacDonald. In fact, the first sentence in the video is a blatantly racist remark about "rednecky girls." If we expect to live in a world without racism, this type of language absolutely needs to disappear. That goes for everyone. I've never shared one of Finn's videos before. I do think that his work is semi informative, but I also get the feeling that he is a tad full of himself and wants to make himself in to some kind of scene celebrity. Just my own opinion, and you're absolutely welcome to call me judgemental for that. This is also a reason why I largely prefer to write articles instead of producing videos. I don't care to be a celebrity. I just want my voice to be heard. In a recent video called "MOST HATED ARTISTS," Finn criticized rapper Tom MacDonald for writing music that preaches unity and speaks to a demographic t

"...Is Secession The ONLY WAY To Get Peace??" by Tim Pool

"We have more in common with each other than we ever will with Donald Trump or Joe Biden" - Dave Smith Great discussion on political division in the United States. I made this clip start where I think some good points are made, but the whole video is worth watching if you have time. "Those same ***kers are cracking up laughing that you're talking about "white supremacy" rather than talking about banker bailouts." - Dave Smith

What Is Pro Fighter Q? | Discussing Lyrics of "Bullion" by Millencolin

Image
What is a Pro Fighter Q? What does a Pro Fighter Q do? Are there any Pro Fighter Q socks? Is anybody listening to me? Billy Madison references aside, some people that listened to Millencolin's classic tune "Bullion" have pondered the lyrics near the end of the song where Nikola Sarcevic refers to something called a Pro Fighter Q. To put it simply, Super Pro Fighter Q was a knockoff device that could be used to "backup" Nintendo  cartridge games back in the 90s. I had actually never even heard of these until doing research for the song lyrics, but maybe the following video can explain how a similar device works. So why does Nikola Sarcevic make a reference to the device? Probably because it rhymes with "you." At least, that's my best guess. He's going through a list of things he plans to change and he's conveying the message that he's changing everything. Even things that are close and dear to him. If Nikolai's time has been dominat

Pop Punk Radio Show - Episode 5 Playlist

Image
  If you're looking for a break from politics and social justice, Episode 5 is for you! This episode is a Chill playlist of mostly mellow music which starts off with some energy before melting in to some acoustic tunes for the latter half of the show. I hope that this playlist inspires you to do something positive. Bands and artists featured in this playlist include: Alicewell, Baxter, Kali Masi, Mansions, Molchat Doma, Mike Herrera, The Ataris, The Menzingers, and Eddie Booze doing a nice Millencolin cover, Long time followers of Pop Punk Radio might recognize Alicewell, a four piece rock group from Sweden. We are happy to see them back with their first video in about 5 years. We would also like to shine a little spotlight on Baxter who bring us a blend of melodic skatepunk from Mannheim, Germany. Kali Masi is perhaps the best band that you have possibly never heard yet. Their music video for "The Stray" was only released in Nov, but I am still absolutely shocked that th

Toasty & Clyde in "The Break-Room Toaster"

Image
I worked in Silicon Valley up until just before the lock-downs occurred. Overall, I loved the company I worked for and the job I did. However, working in Big Tech with a bunch of spoiled young millennials was also an exercise in frustration in a lot of ways. Many of these "kids" were just entering the workforce for their first job after graduating from college.  I do want to mention that the vast majority of the people I worked with were great people. I also worked a night-shift which brought people in from all parts of the country, as well as the globe to work together in one office. Overall it was a great environment in a lot of ways. Many of the people I met from other parts of the country were great people. I also worked with a lot of international people from other countries who were amazing friendly people. However, I noticed that there was a stark comparison between those who worked night shift and were largely recruited from other parts of the globe, versus many of th

"What Do Men Gain In Marriage?" by Better Bachelor

Image
Absolutely nothing. Men have far more to lose in marriage these days than they have to gain. Don't get married, fellas. Just don't. If you do insist on tying a knot, marry a guy friend. You're better off being single or gay. Seriously. Many women these days are not trustworthy, are not reliable, have rotten attitudes, and many of them are looking for "Captain Save-a-Hoe" to rescue them from poor decisions made in their own lives. By "rescue" I mean, stealing half of everything you've earned, reaching in to each and every pay check you earn for the next X amount of years, and taking your family away from you for all but two weekends a month (if you're lucky). Sit this one out for a while, build your wealth, and focus on yourself. Good women are out there, but they are very few and far between. Modern dating is like looking for a thread in a stack of needles. Don't do it. My two cents.

"...Women Are Awful On Dating Apps" by Better Bachelor

Image
As someone who was in a long term relationship for 3.5 years with an insane woman found on Eharmony, and a handful of hook-ups on other dating apps over the years, I full-heartedly recommend avoiding any and all dating apps at all costs. Meet people through friends or get active in a new scene or activity. There's also nothing wrong with waiting things out for now because the dating scene and women's behavior seems pretty awful these days.
