Philosophes Sans Frontières
The drunken ramblings of four friends, featuring an occasional guest. Fueled by booze and opinions, we can't promise it will be entertaining, but maybe informative and probably offensive, which, in just the right proportions is the definition of "entertainment," anyway. Delving into Art, Religion, Philosophy, Science, Politics and even the Occult, you're sure to find something you like. Join us on a weekly trip and choose your side. It's all the shit they tell you to never talk about at work, but fortunately for you, it's our job.
We are... Philosophers Without Borders.
Slacker philosophers Phoenix, Running Tree, 4ButtonSoul and BrianshipPotemkin drink and make merry whilst broadcasting LIVE! from The Onyx Tower.
The International Motorcycle Show 2018 is perused and critiqued; in lieu of being adept at discussing things with only two wheels unless they are featured in Mario Kart, Potemkin adorns his newly acquired Progressive Insurance swag and talks about his experience researching fashion watches and his newfound disdain for internet companies who claim to "cut out the middle man," while Phoenix asserts a watch alternative. Running Tree becomes enamored with Jello Biafra after watching some old daytime talk show clips and runs down a theory that the teens featured and discussed on Donahue and Oprah in the late 80's who were being condescended to by Tipper "Livin' in the land of the Metal Gods" Gore's PMRC are now the ones teaching "tolerant anti-tolerance" and Gender-Earnings-Gap Studies in colleges to the idle and exasperated powder kegs that are the millennial mind.
During the aftermath of the holiday season, in the frozen tundra that was once the north eastern United States, Running Tree aids Phoenix in keeping his IT certifications up-to-date by finding out who indeed "The Last Jedi" are and what a "Puffin" is, Potemkin expresses his inversion of the love he used to feel for Christmas, spending more time playing Dark Souls for the fiftieth time instead of feeling holly, jolly or whathaveyou, a goofy ex-Vine star child posts something ridiculous and pretends to be surprised/sorry when said ridiculous post gets bad press (which is still press, of course), most of our computers are fucked until January 9th, the pending Catherine PS4 remake takes heat from twacktivists because getting mad at Japanese language trailers makes you look like you understand Japanese which is SUPER COOL and 10-year-old drag queens are a thing now, even though the crew was under the progressive assumption that being a drag queen appropriates and mocks transgender culture in a manner that borders on being rampantly vaginaphobic.
Phoenix makes a series of ethically abhorrent purchase decisions during Black Friday weekend, Rick and Morty fanatics are the most woke of all in fandom, podcasting with micro-transactions, Altus goes DMCA on the RPCS3 PS3 emulator devs, Madoff is a bitch, sex robits, more sex robits and even more sex robits are coming for your jobs and your husbands.
Potemkin asserts that no one on God's forsaken, cerulean pinball-of-death knows what the fuck the left-hand lane on the highway is for, as the crew then descends into Hollywood's erection problem and the pronunciation of "Weinstein," Forza 7 on the Windows 10 "console," the Injustice 2 Online Beta, Destiny (the shitty Twitch streamer not the shitty video game) and hats with speakers;
Running Tree mocks Potemkin's pronunciation of French, 4ButtonSoul and Redolution pop into the chat to make Weinstein dick jokes, the crew questions the motive behind pushing the gender earnings gap and Running Tree brings up transgender suicide rates while Nihilist FDR (Phoenix) takes his final smoke break for the evening after giving an exhausting commentary on all fronts.
The crew opens up their booty of slightly-expired to nearly-expired snacks from an earlier bargain store excursion, pre-packaged Caribbean Rum Cake from said booty giving Potemkin the energy to lambaste his beloved Nintendo for the second episode in a row for their rampant nostalgia manipulation with the release of SNES Classic, and their calculated, inbred reluctance to not produce nearly enough units once again; the current man-made God of Cell Phones is disparaged and Running Tree tells his tale of riding as a freeman on the land at the 2017 Triumph meetup.
Potemkin rages over the tribulations of emulation via the Steam Link, Phoenix defends Nintendo's God-given Right to defend their brand, Hurricanes, Fascist Anti-Fascists and Running Tree invites Kairos facial recognition technology to the table as they humor themselves by testing it on Blaire White and Dick Masterson,
Hot off the heels of eating a homemade chorizo and pepper pizza and a summer thus far dedicated to installing clutches and exhaust pipes into their Japanese vehicles, the crew rejoins to find that everything but make-up tutorials and children's programming on youtube is "not suitable for all advertisers."
Sadly, their English Correspondent, 4ButtonSoul has been promoted by the podcasting Gods to the position of "Tower of Babel Viceroy of Great Britain" and is being immediately relocated across the Atlantic for active duty. The crew will miss his farts and memes, but even more so, his insights, quick wit and more than satisfactory accent. They will attempt to keep his aLIVE presence in future episodes via the least crappy version of internet telephone currently available.
We now stream on the Spectrum, Gamestop, The Twitch Copyrighted Music/The Pandering model vs. The Advertising model Cheesecake Conundrum, actual problematic Dr. Pepper Cheesecake developed by 4Buttonsoul, the term "institutionalized," Phoenix's cursed adult coloring book causes more neuroses than it soothes, Time Warner Cable fucks off, "retirement" by any other name, designated shitting streets, and the three rings of circle-jerk.
Benevolent Kitty Overlord gets "investigated, "Fucking 15 Fucking Dollars an Hour," featuring Penn Station, fast food mistake theft, Running Tree's bike "repair" story, "The Biggest Problem in the Universe" bites the sudden dust abruptly, ex-member BlueSun purposefully exudes the Dunning Kruger Effect and sells all of his guitars to Potemkin as if to save them from languishing from dis/misuse.
1:14:11 Any listener who has stuck their dick into an electric outlet, or knows someone who has, please contact us @4ButtonSoul. We want to hear your story.
Avocados, tomatoes, "I can get behind a Hungry Man," a very drunk RunningTree, annoying Atheism, psychoanalyzing one another's dreams, RunningTree sobers up, fucked up, not recommended jerk-off techniques, selling out and the disgusting blueberry peeps.
