Joe Rogan talks about Florida, Oxycontin, Pythons, Gainesville, Miami, Clearwater, Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard, Ted Bundy and Monkey Herpes, among other things.
I made this because I used to be from Florida. But not anymore. I got out of there years ago. But not before the redneck state broke my family in so many pieces - I am amazed that I can tie my own shoes (Floridians primarily wear flip-flops). Anyway, I’m a huge fan of The Joe Rogan Experience Podcast and I love it whenever Joe talks smack about my place of birth. I thought I was the only one, honestly. So, I decided to edit out all the instances where Rogan mentions FLA because I feel he makes some really great points for why Florida truly is the worst state in the union. Perhaps I have way too much time on my hands. Or perhaps this is simply an interesting way to exercise my childhood demons. Irregardless, enjoy the next hour of Florida-banter!

Sometimes it’s nice to branch out and do other people’s podcasts. It helps us to market our T-shirt line and our own podcast, plus it gets Martini out of his apartment on occasion. He’s a depressing hermit on most days of the week, a sad, dimwitted, idiotic, simpleton. Anyway, checkout talented, talk radio comedian, Jesse P-S’ Pod Awful Podcast. Martini and I appeared on Episode 713 to discuss various topics, including, but not limited to pizza, pranking, printing, soul-sucking shit-jobs and a flamboyant, white, Los Angeles rapper named Tristan Starchild.

Ahoy, me Hearties. Ye have heard of Bobby Pickles – podcast pirate, skilled in the fine art of double dutch. What’s your name, ye bilge-sucking seadog!? Hornswoggle!
Aaaarrrrgggghhhh! That’s what happened to today’s filibuster. The same Son of a Biscuit Eater, pillaged us buccaneers, savvy? And the retched scallywag hornswoggled us for more than our doubloons. Shiver me timbers, our pieces of eight fell along the emotional and psychological side of the poop deck. Ye old abbey lubber, Robert Taylor, ye were ram shackled and marooned on a deserted island in the south pacific for 20 plus years. So now ye’ve found your sea legs!! Well, blow me down! Don’t let me lookout set his sights on ye chowder-head, for ye are not afeared. And next time we’ll feed ye to the fishes!
But before ye pay a visit to Davy Jones’ Locker, me and me maties pay a visit to Carlos Morales, graphic sign man, musician, and able seaman. Dead men tell no tales but we do a bit of blethering about piracy, plundering, bleeding our powdered monkey, and spotting dolphins; Thar she blows!
So, under the guise of St. Elmo’s Fire, we hoist our Jolly Roger, and me crew of privateers trade in our rum for bud light grogs until we be three sheets to the wind. And so we form a guinea gangplank of our own, despite being anchored along the coast of Shell Island, and not Staten Island. Yo ho ho, a pirate’s life for me!!

Students are taught the ins and outs of the garment decorating industry. They will learn how to prepare their artwork for print, coat and shoot screens, the proper methods of applying inks, the various kinds of inks and squeegees and equipment, etc. Each student will walk away with a very comprehensive knowledge of the art form (for an Intro class) for I, Bobby Pickles, am a natural born genius at teaching folk.

Students also have the option of purchasing more blank apparel at wholesale (print however many additional pieces you would like).

At the end of the class, you will be smarter than you were prior to it, scout's honor (although I was never an eagle scout).
Hello. I’m Bobby Pickles. What’s your name? Stimulating!
Or perhaps it would be more culturally and/or historically accurate if the word of the day were “pioneering” or “trailblazing” or “innovating”…
Any of these can be used to describe today’s guest, Dave Reynard, the “glass dildo king” of Florida – actually, of the world. For Mr. Reynard is the inventor of and holds the patents to borosilicate glass sex toys. Before he and his company, Knowmind Enterprises, had brought them to market, no one had done it. The only people blowing glass were stoners manufacturing marijuana pipes. Today, however, there are a plethora of imitators. But the level of R&D orchestrated by his company is still unmatched in the industry. It’s something that was first documented back in the early 2000s on HBO’s Real Sex episode 27. HBO followed Dave, and business partner Steve Ritchie, around for eight days as they designed and manufactured these groundbreaking products, and conducted one of their infamous research and development excursions, which essentially entails shuttling around about four to eight single women and/or couples by boat throughout the vast waters of Tampa Bay, where their products are tested in real-time in order to gauge practical application. These “toys”, which Knowmind turns out, have been referred to as the “Rolls Royce of glass dildos” and for good reason. If anybody out there in the interwebs would like to purchase any of these awesome, impeccably crafted creations, they can click the link on the show page at Bobby Pickles dot Com, plus you will be simultaneously supporting the podcast. Dave has assured us that glass is a much healthier way to go, better than the traditional rubber, acrylic and plastic (or RAPs), and you can heat or freeze them, they won’t stain or smell, lubricants last longer, plus they’re a functional work of art (store them on your bookshelf).
But Dave is anything but a one-horse man. An ex-cop, ham radio operator and top-notch marketer, Reynard is also the inventor of the cyclocharger, a new kind of intake valve, or throttle body, which is basically a split butterfly valve to be used in engines and generators. The cyclocharger is under development in the Tampa Bay Area and is patented under patent number 6,959,690 with the United States Patent Office. Licensing is now available in many markets for practical application in new car, after market, carburation, racing, fuel injection, turbocharging and supercharging. He’s also the original inventor of the cellular telephone, allegedly, which is one of the topics of discussion on this episode of the podcast. Furthermore, he is an amateur physicist who penned a hypothesis entitled, “The Relationship of Time and Gravity: Understanding cold fusion, the big bang(s), black holes, time travel, particle physics, and the theory of everything, while violating the least laws of physics.” The PDF of which can also be downloaded below.
The following podcast was conducted on January 3rd 2014 from Dave’s boat, docked along the intracoastal waterways of Madeira Beach, Florida. Originally, the plan was to conduct the podcast at District 33 and a 3rd, which is the name my cohort, Ben Coletti, coined in reference to sandbar located a few hundred yards away from the mouth of Johns Pass, where, on any given weekend, boaters raft-up to party and have a good time. It’s where Dave can usually be found consuming mimosas, commiserating with tourists and natives alike, and perhaps even doing a bit of R&D, from 5pm Friday until Sunday evening. Anyways, this conversation just scratched the surface of Dave Reynard, the “glass dildo king”, so we’re going to follow up with him this summer. But for now, let’s just say hello to a very interesting, unconventional person. We talk sales, dildos and cell phones, among other things, and I’m confident you will enjoy the following discussion.
