Hyphen Nation - Episode #34: Beer Makes The World Go Round (Costarring Marcus ShowinmadLov Robinson)

I took to Twitter to defend the honor of Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly recently. I was told in no uncertain terms that the gentleman who I defended TPAB against was coming to discuss this issue at length on THE WORLD’S GREATEST PODCAST. That gentleman happened to be Marcus ShowinmadLov Robinson, sponsor of the show through his own website themarcrob dot wordpress dot com, so I was more than happy to oblige. He brought beer. We started talking. We eventually got down to our sides of the TPAB/DAMN. argument. We delved into the Drake side of things at length. There may be long musical interludes. We spent the first hour talking about a whole list of topics. When I signed off, we had a two hour podcast. Should I break it up? NAH. We live baby. I proudly give you the Charles Barkley episode of Hyphen Nation. SC6 is a disappointment.

There’s Ducks at my House

I have no idea if this matters but I’m making a big deal about it.

I came home today and saw two ducks in my front yard. This is the first time I’ve seen ducks this close to my house since we moved in last June.
They’re here because my neighbor has a bunch of grass seed down after some yard work. There’s also an annoying woodpecker that pops up in the morning now, but fuck that bird.
It’s funny because I had an incident down at my work getaway spot by the river a week or so before. I thought I had ran over a duck’s foot when it flew over my car and landed… with one foot. I freaked. I searched for the foot. The duck was acting crazy.
But no foot. As Marcus says, the jig was up. The duck had already been living on one foot for some time. I saw it a couple days later getting along fine. I guess he was pissy I woke him up when I pulled in next to him​.
The ducks are significant because I was fired from that job that I used to run away from every chance I got. I went back to…

Hyphen Nation - Episode #33: Back To Live Action

So now that I've restored some sort of order to bhyphendotcom, THE WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST returns. After a PSA, I talk about why awards shows matter when they really shouldn't, I discuss how I may be the softest podcast host out after how I reacted to Logan, I try to remind everyone that X2 was really, really good, and I ask if there's a point where I have to get out of the superhero film game as the cast ages out. I also make sure to keep my top hater status intact and I almost make it the entire show without mentioning a certain Mrs. Carter. I'm really enjoying this House Of Horrors match between Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton.

Mollyfog The Music - Episode #3: Lando Sings Soulful Classics

Tom isn’t the biggest Childish Gambino fan but he loves the idea of a Lando Calrissian cover album. Kelen thinks Humpty Hump may have ruined the career of Shock G. Tom thinks Bell Biv Devoe has sage advice but are kind of rude. The guys have no sympathy for Davy Jones. Kelen only picked “Mother Knows Best” because he loves Mother Gothel/Donna Murphy (shout out to Derrick Ferguson). And they wrap things up by trying to talk a lover of Nancy Drew books off the ledge. Not so many bad females this time out but the music is noteworthy!

Life In Morgantown: The Conduit 2.0

My friend John Hale has less than 10 days to hit his goal, he’s 3K away!


This is a special edition of Life In Morgantown. John Hale wants to make a short film. He needs $23,456.00. He has $20, 455 at the time of this post. I met John through E a few years ago and he was cool enough to film my performance at the Gluck Theatre back in 2012.

John in a few thousand away from realizing his dream. I’m all about people reaching their dreams, especially when it’s a friend. If you can help, please do. Link and his video are below. And I even threw the Gluck video on there as well.

My Daughter is 3 Today

And she’s the best thing to ever happen to me.


At 4:29 in the morning three years ago, my wife Angel brought our daughter Aaliyah into this world. And due to some unforeseen circumstances, I was the first one of us to hold her. I stood in that hospital room holding this life that weighed hardly anything, as Brandi looked on. I was wearing my favorite CM Punk shirt of course but that almost goes without saying.

I was terrified. I had been terrified the entire time Angel had been pregnant. People would say, “You’ve always been great with kids!” But this was different. I’m responsible for this one. She’s depending on us to help her grow into adulthood. I barely resemble an adult once I start talking, how was I going to take care of a baby?

I wake up now and I’m still terrified. Not of my parenting skills but now I worry about Aaliyah when she’s in daycare. Are they treating her well? Did she take a nap? Is she being nice to her classmates? Is she really old enough to be wiping all by her…

The Jazz and Clippers Played a Classic

Joe Johnson was 2007 Joe Johnson; the Clippers were the Clippers.



I watched the second half mostly. I had just lost two in a row in 2K14 to E when we decided to switch back and watch the last playoff game of the day.

We debated over how big a moment this playoff series is for Gordon Hayward as a possible stepping stone to the next chapter of his NBA career. We marveled at Chris Paul, saw Utah always get that crucial basket, and watched Blake Griffin disappear in the 4th quarter.

If the steady performance of the Jazz (and clutch Joe Johnson shooting) is what kept the them ahead, CP3 pulled out just about every trick he knows to try to will the Clippers to the W. He made up the majority of the Clippers offense as Jamal Crawford and JJ Reddick found themselves missing routine shots in the final stanza.

Coming out of the last Clippers timeout, I asked E if he thought the Clippers would tie the game or if they would win.

    I think the Jazz are going to win.

I mumbled something about that…
