The Jay Porks Experience (Podcast Edition) Episode Seven : "Pearl Slam"

We're back with another podcast this week here at the Jay Porks Experience. This week, my hatred for the band known as Pearl Jam is revealed. Before listening I want everyone to take into consideration that this was recorded BEFORE Pearl Jam week on Fallon was announced. Could only imagine my delight to find out that that was happening, not that I watch Jimmy Fallon anyway, but taking over my  life via social media and television is something the band has become good at.

Yes, this picture above is stupid. It's what comes from LA Weekly, complete and utter nonsense. But you'd be surprised how hard it is to find a suitable picture searching the terms "Pearl Jam Sucks". What can I say, you people have taken over the internet. But before you people run to the people I try and write for on the internet and try and have me fired, think about this for a second: I hate this band. I'm not telling you to hate this band. I have an opinion, I'm not telling you how to think or what your opinion should be. If you're so offended by my statements (which I see no reason for you to be), I invite you onto my podcast to talk about it. I'll google instructions on how to use this program to patch in people on Skype and we'll have a chat. I wanted to begin having guests anyway.

The second rant in this week's podcast comes thanks to the National Football League who are doing a wonderful job covering up a growing problem in their sport, that'd be CTE (or Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy). I am not claiming to be smart enough to explain all the nooks and crannies to the laymen, because that's exactly what I am. I'm just a guy who watched a documentary, and I think it'd be best if everyone who is a fan of having Sunday's be a day full of laziness and beer to take a look at it. You can head over to PBS Frontline to watch the documentary by clicking here

Back to the Meat Puppets, I'm still in awe of the Backwater > Sloop John B >Open Wide > Cathy's Clown > Lake Of Fire mind explosion the boys dumped on us back at the Brooklyn Bowl on October 12th. I've got a place you can go to get tons of video (TONS of video for the visual learner), awesome photos and if you like to read, words too. That place is only Concert Confessions: Live Music News And Reviews For The Fans, BY The Fans. Click Here to check that out

Tap me on the shoulder and share bands with me, albums I should check out. I will. It doesn't have to be a new record, maybe an album that you think I'd enjoy that I may have missed along the way, or been ignorant towards. Whatever. Don't worry, I'll never go Pearl Jam on your band because the band you're going to show me hasn't annoyed the shit out of my life for the past 20 years. 

Here's the article Krist Novoselic tweeted in which Kurt Cobain is compared to painter Jean-Michel Basquiat. Interesting read, click here for it 

Tweet at me @JayPorks .. ask me random things, give me things to bitch about. Things to love. Let's be friends!

The Jay Porks Experience (Podcast Edition): Episode Six - "Porks And Recreation"

And here we are back with another podcast, another few minutes of me sharing with you the pleasures and displeasure's of my concert experiences, both present and past. Today, we're sticking with the present,as I've just come down from the trip known as seeing the Meat Puppets live. It was my 13th time, great as usual. You need check out my words, photos and awesome videos from the gig by clicking here to get to Concert Confessions: The only place on the internet to find your Live Music News And Reviews For Fans, BY Fans.

Thanks to the Andy Derer Network of Podcasts, I've been given the opportunity to just click record and share my thoughts and complaints from the only person from the Forgotten Borough.. Staten Island, New York that you know.

Head over to Cris Kirkwood's Art Website, CrisKirkwoodArt.Com . Tons of cool stuff available there, and like I mention in this weeks episode, you'll want to grab some of this stuff as the holiday season is right around the corner. 

Here's the "Open Wide" shot on my IPhone 5 that I mentioned. The picture quality is some epic stuff, and we should be hitting more shows in the near future and getting some awesome picks. This guy does have a birthday coming up after all.

At 13:50, I'm not kidding about the driver.. If there's anybody who wants to hit shows in the New York City metro area, and can offer me a ride home from a show in exchange of a ticket that I will purchase for you. Or even if your somebody who doesn't like to go to concerts but enjoys driving and making money off folks, send me an email at JayPorks@GMail.Com, we can work out some sort of arrangement. I'm too awesome an individual to have the low amount of friends that I do. Tweet me @JayPorks , be my friend. My only friends can't live in different states, I can't get to them. 

If you're out west and plan of hitting one of the many Meat Puppets shows out in the Golden State, Washington, Idaho, Vegas, etc., hit up the article I have up at Antiquiet with all the Pups tour dates here. or you could even head to TheMeatPuppets.Com/Tour to get tickets and stuff.
