Episode 22 - The Return Of Roulette

June 28, 2017

"We call it the Kingdom Seal.  Every Single line has a meaning.  The two lines going across the middle represent the crossroads.  It separates heaven and hell.  Some people say it looks evil.  If you count the circles on the outside there are six little circles, but a lot of people miss the big circle, the 7th circle which is actually a holy symbol.   Sometimes it's not always what it seems."   - Jess Bariletti on the New Roulette Logo

        

My friends in Roulette have turned the page and entered the “FIRE” era of their career. Jess, Joe, Greg, and Anthony talk about the darker, heavier direction of the band as they share their newest track “Kingdom Here Come”. Be sure to keep it here as the band provides some puzzle pieces behind the “FIRE” EP concept and how it just may be part of a bigger plan. Catch Roulette's EP Release show at Paul's Tavern in Lake Como July 22nd with Metal Life Crisis, Mind Riot, and The Black Clouds.

Episode 21 - Money in the Bank Edition

June 16, 2017

"A.J. Styles does not need it.  It would honestly be another accomplishment on his already awesome record.  We all know what he's done, and where he's done it.  He's been world champ everywhere.  But historically Money in the Bank is supposed to make a star.  I've done the research.  I watched all the Money in the Bank Matches.  Ten people in history have won their first World Title by cashing it in.  And I don't see A.J. or Nakamura doing it either.  Plus it's gonna be hard for Nakamura to do that awesome entrance holding that briefcase." - Mike "Vacc" on the MITB Ladder Match

After knocking it out of the park with our Wrestlemania Predictions, I've re-assembled my pro wrestling panel of Mike "Vacc", Tim Urig (@HeyUsports), and Michael Camp (Jersey Campfire Booking) to talk about this year's WWE Money in the Bank PPV.  We discuss our picks for the first Ever "Miss Money in the Bank",  our hopes for a women's royal rumble, the "Jinder-ella" story, the M.I.T.B. Ladder match, and whether or not we will see any cash-ins at the PPV.  The four of us also take a few minutes to remember our favorite Batman, the late Adam West.

Episode 20 - Wonder Woman

June 12, 2017

"Be a man.  Imagine for a moment that every superhero movie that's come out in your lifetime had an all female cast, with maybe a couple oddball exceptions.    Imagine that Superwoman and Batwoman and Spider-woman all had sidekicks or counterparts named Superboy and Batboy and Spiderboy.  Imagine if all your male superheroes had names like HEHulk and ManThor and MaleWOlverine, (Deadpool and GentlemanDeadpool), and they were always on the sidelines and kinda jokes, not the REAL versions.  And in those all female-lead movies there would be one or two male heroes, helping out, doing their best.  And you KNOW that people would LOVE more male superheroes because they could be so cool.  You know guys are cool and amazing and not just nice butts.  And then suddenly, there's a big movie poster with this badass GUY on it and it's the first time you've seen someone who's like you LEADING the movie and sure the rest of the cast is women, but HE's the main character and you just think, FINALLY!! THAT'S why I'm so excited for Wonder Woman"  - Emilie Rogers 

In my latest episode of the podcast I've assembled a super team of self-proclaimed feminists including Kate from Vextion, Cosplayer/Artist Emilie Rogers, and authors Annie and Jess who write as "A.J. Tipton"  to discuss the newest film from the DC Cinematic Universe, "Wonder Woman".  We discuss our favorite scenes, Gal Gadot's phenomenal performance, and this movie's place in the DC Cinematic Universe as well as our universe!    Tune in to find out what we think about what this movie means to the future of female protagonists in film!  (Mature Language)

Episode 19 - Purple Glaze Donuts, etc.

June 8, 2017

"We wanted to create something that was a little bit different than regular doughnuts, and wanted something that would reflect Asbury Park and the culture around us.  We wanted to come up with fun names, fun flavors, fresh and clean.  Once we started, we couldn't stop.  We're always coming up with all these flavor combinations.  We get inspirations from everything around us and our customer's suggestions."  - Jacki Sharpe, Founder of Purple Glaze Donuts Etc. 
 

If you are looking for top notch treats, fun themes, and the most welcoming staff you will ever meet, look no further than Purple Glaze Donuts, etc. in Asbury Park, NJ.  I sat down with owner and operator Jacki Sharpe, her son Wes Sharpe, and Dan Felicetta who have brought this small, charming Doughnut Shop to life.  As I sample the unique flavor combos as well as daily specials, we discuss the origin of the shop,  the doughnut puns, vegan doughnuts, and even the ever popular treats available for dogs!  Tune in for my most delicious interview to date!

Episode 18 - The Lemats

May 9, 2017

"What music has done for me and for us, I want to give back to that.   Music has always been there for me. If you're getting through a tough situation music can be very cathartic, that's really what I'm drawn towards.  Music pulls me in, and that's how I write."  - Frank Calabrese of The Lemats

Local rockers, the Lemats join me on the show to share their latest EP "The Lemats: Live at the Saint". The quartet, known for their bluesy, folk, rock n' roll sound, discuss their origin story, the writing process, and the desire to give their listeners something to lean on.  Lead Singer, Frank even gives me some solid advice on how to write lyrics for an original song.  Keep it here for the tracks "Black Cloud" (Live) and "The Astronomer" (studio version) from the record.   http://www.thelemats.com

Episode 17 - Mike and Michelle Vermillion of SledgePad Innovations LLC

May 2, 2017

"I ordered a box of foam to sit home and experiment with.  I got a PA and microphones and I did everything with my ear.  I would cut something I thought would work, and then I would try something else.  I came up with a formula for the exact right amount of compression.   When I threw it in the drum it laid in the drum like a V.  I put it all together and put a mic on it.   It was like one of those moments.  I ran up the stairs to say Michelle come here and listen to this."  -Mike Vermillion, Founder of SledgePad

Here's another one for all my drummer pals!  Throwing a blanket in your bass drum is now a thing of the past!  I had the pleasure of speaking with the very lovely and intelligent Mike and Michelle Vermillion of SledgePad Innovations LLC.  The couple share all the details of their revolutionary bass drum head to head dampening system, the SledgePad. We discuss the origin of the product, the functionality, new products, and how SledgePad is being used on stage with national acts such as P!nk, Collective soul, Cher, and more!  http://www.sledgepad.com   sledgepad19@Gmail.com

Episode 16 - Paul Friemel of Ript Apparel

April 27, 2017

"Creatively, I would say try to draw what you love.  Try to make something that you would want to wear.   Something that makes sense to you, but also be careful about getting too far into your own head.  Do something you love but also be aware it has to speak to other people as well." - Paul Friemel

I had the pleasure of talking to the Founder and CCO of the Chicago based daily T-shirt site Riptapparel.com, Mr. Paul Friemel.  Paul talks about how playing in a band and working with the likes of The Smashing Pumpkins put him on the path to starting a successful online T-shirt brand.  The Grand Master of the RIPT Artist Group also lets me in on a few secrets of the brand, while providing an abundance of advice for aspiring T-shirt artists.

Episode 15 - Aud Ragle of Nerding the F Out

April 4, 2017

"I really think this is going to put the 3DS to bed, which is disappointing because it's actually one of my favorites.  Although Switch is very quickly replacing it.  I have a case for it.  I carry it around like I used to carry around my 3DS.  Who knows? I might get stranded somewhere and I want to be able to play Zelda."     

On my first ever Gamer edition of the show, I am joined by Aud Ragle of the Nerding The F Out Blog to review Nintendo's newest console, the Switch.  We discuss our favorite games of all time, all things Zelda, and even Pokemon beer pairing.  Before it's game over, make sure you stay tuned for two tracks from the new Charles Laurita and the Mischief Studio Series, "Bob-omb Battlefield Funk" and "Pokemon Gym Funk"!!

April 1, 2017

"I don't want to be right, but I think that Roman Reigns is actually going to win.  I think they are building him again to do something crazy.  I really don't want to see it.  I'm going to cringe if Taker loses but I just have that feeling that's the way they are going."  - Michael Camp of Jersey Campfire Productions 

On this special Wrestlemania 33 edition of the show, I am joined by my panel of experts featuring Mike Vacc, Tim Urig of @HeyUSports and Michael Camp of Jersey Campfire Productions.  We go through the entire card match by match to make all of our predictions with some surprises along the way.  We also discuss the majority of "part timers" on the card, the impact of the Women's Revolution, and a possible Broken Hardys appearance.  Tune in to find out our thoughts on our favorites to win, surprise appearances, and even what we think about possible proposals and matters of the heart!  This is a Wrestlemania Podcast like no other!
