Episode 26 - SummerSlam Edition

August 18, 2017

"You have to take it off Brock. The House Shows, the live shows, Raw, everything. The title needs to be there.
The other three guys are great. Even if you give it to Roman Reigns, I just want to see the title on Raw. Braun is a big dude AND he can wrestle. But I really think it's gonna be Samoa Joe"
- Michael Camp on the Fatal 4-Way Universal Title Match

Episode 25 - Fantasy Football 2.0 Edition

August 12, 2017

"I've always taken a running back first, whether it's a standard or a PPR league, because I don't think the depth is there. I think you have amazing running backs and then I think you have just good running backs. You need a top five guy, one hundred percent." - Trevor Marden

Football Season is right around the corner, so I've gathered my expert Football panel, Mr. Tim Urig (@heyusports) and Mr. Trevor Marden (@btgtrevor) for this year's Fantasy Football edition of the Bobcast. We talk about Who's Hot and Who's not this season, while taking an in depth look at all positions. Keep it here for a "Fauxball Theme" by Kate Ortiz and a one of a kind multi-round mock draft.

Episode 24 - Spider-Man: Homecoming Edition

July 20, 2017

"Spider-man's not a gritty, brooding, dark sort of anti-hero.  Spider-man's a light, wise-cracking, fun character.   He has fun being a superhero.   Even though the reasons he does it, and some of the underlying themes are serious and sometimes bittersweet.  He's a fun Super-Hero. I think this is the first time that they really nailed that part of Spider-Man"  - Eddie Soles on the Spider-Man in Film

SPOILER ALERT!   I sit down with long time friend and avid Spidey fan, Mr. Ed Soles to discuss the first MCU installment of everyone's favorite friendly neighborhood web-slinger in Spider-Man: Homecoming.  We talk character development, Easter eggs,  and even explore the deeper meaning between Peter Parker and Tony Stark's relationship throughout this film and Civil War.  Keep it here to find out what we think this movie means for the future of the Spider-Man mythos in and out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Episode 23 - Kill Screen Games

July 13, 2017

" I had been into video gaming and collecting for a number of years.  I would buy games, collections, and whatever I could get my hands on.  Whatever I didn't need I would re-sell or trade.  Eventually I quit my dead end job and sold online full time, which we still do.  My buddy, Drew mentioned the spot in Asbury Park, and I signed the lease shortly thereafter."  - Phil Harding of Kill Screen Games

Retro Video Game Store, Kill Screen Games is celebrating their Three Year Anniversary in Asbury Park, NJ.   I stopped by the shop to talk to founder and manager Phil Harding about retro gaming, re-releases, and our favorite games of all time!!  Keeping with the retro-gaming theme,  this episode features music by Charles Laurita & the Mischief including "Paperboy Funk Jam" and "Saria's Song Slow Jam" (Outro).

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)

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.

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
