You Can’t Tuna Fish

When he was young, Ed was beaten by bullies because he couldn’t get into his locker fast enough. Goddamn combination lock.

After graduation, he enrolled in a key-making school where he learned to make a wide variety of keys – for the home, for lock boxes and safes, and even for skeletons.

He had a child. She would never suffer as he had. She would be safely surrounded by keys.

He spent the next twenty years working 16 hour days, 7 days a week. Eventually he had enough money.

He bought her a piano.

She never learned to play.

Pax Titanus only 5 bucks on Amazon. 50% off!

Word on the street is that Amazon is trying to make room and they are marking down a number of books!

My most recent, Pax Titanus, is currently half off…at $5, it’s cheaper than a fancy coffee at Starbucks.

Great time to pick it up. Buy a copy for a friend. Or enemy.
 

MattyLovesPodcast Episode 47: “A (Killing) joke.”

New show. The disaster that is The Killing Joke…adaptation.

So a week or so ago, Matt de Simone and “Dr. Tom” Lucas watched a sneak preview of DC Animation’s adaptation of Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s Batman: The Killing Joke. In this episode, the fellas took the time to discuss everything that went wrong.

With Suicide Squad coming out this week, Matt decided to create a “Death Pool.” Hear who The Street Shaman and Matty think bites it.

Enjoy!

MattyLovesPodcast Episode 45: “Pokémon Go! or, no?”

mattyloves

NOTE: This episode was recorded over a week and a half ago. The reason for this disclaimer is to appease Matt’s Poké-ego (he’s almost a Level 22 at this point). And yes, he’s spent a little coin on the game. Enjoy Matt’s hypocrisy at the end of the episode. Thank you.

Welcome to another episode of MattyLovesPodcast!

This episode focuses on a trend that has swept the entire world (for those who can play): Pokémon Go! Matt de Simone tries to explain the game to “Dr. Tom.” 

Meanwhile, while Matt’s hunting for Pokémon, “The Street Shaman” has began to building Legos in his spare time to help dial back his time in front of the Netflix and the whatnot.

It’s a nice, relaxing, and informative episode. Enjoy!

Fresh new show right ova here!

mattyloves

Hey, everyone! “Dr. Tom” Lucas is back! He’s fresh off of a European vacation and ready to sit down with Matt de Simone to talk all about where Tom visited.

From Paris to Denmark to Norway, Tom saw the sights, the traffic, and the fjords. Oh, and the food. Glorious European cuisine. Sit back and enjoy as Tom takes us through a jaunt through the European countrysides and whatnot. Tom also tries to explain Norway’s obsession with trolls.
