Ep 35 – Boob Sweat

This one is a little lazy, and maybe not as edited as I would like.  It’s been a horrible week and I just wanted to get this episode up, so please pardon me if this goes awry.  You’ll have some fun for sure!

I’m sorry guys, but as much fun as the Live Timesuck was this past Sunday, the rest of the week went completely fucking apeshit and at the same time I’m trying to get my shit together to go to North Carolina this weekend and also figure out all the new shit with our new host, Podbean.  This is our first episode hosted with them and you’ll find out more about that in this episode.  Forgive me this next couple weeks.  Between learning new shit and the travel stuff, I’ll get my shit together eventually.

Please pardon the lacking webpage today.

Ep 34 – There Are Boobs In Here!



So many boobs! Big boobs, small boobs, bouncing boobs, naked boobs all over the place!  ALL of the boobs!  You definitely do not want to miss this episode.  It’s unlike anything we have ever done before and it is completely unprecedented in all of podcasting history!

Also, none of that is true.  100% click bait.

Did it work?

I love the gingers . . . sue me.

Apparently Leo captured me as I was talking to my boss for the first 15 minutes of our Skype call.  This is what he was subjected to while he waited.

This is the surreal view of downtown Tampa with the sun behind me and the monsoon forming behind the buildings.  I was driving, so I apologize if the pics suck.

Here is my truck loaded with more pallets than it is supposed to carry.  I’m willing to bet my blood pressure was all 3 digit numbers when I took this pic.

If you don’t have me on Facebook, this is the video I posted begging my boss to fix my AC in the truck.

 

Here is the disturbing Twitter post I shared the other day . . .

and the responses that made me laugh until I cried . . .

My son Anthony passing on his displeasure with Leo’s comment.

. . . and here is Bobby with his not-so-subtle reminder.

And I fuckin’ DID IT!!  So if you live in Tampa, or you’re gonna be in Tampa, or you just need a fuckin’ excuse to go to Tampa, then click this fuckin’ link and buy a goddamn ticket and support me and everything this fucking podcast was built around!

To round out the show, I did my food prep/grilling/all that shit that we talked about I was gonna do.

All of the food groups are represented here . . . Beef, Pork, Chicken and Other Beef.

If you aren’t soaking your ribeyes in this shit right here, then you are fucking wrong and you need to correct yourself.

I’m saving this for last, because the recipes will follow, but here are both versions of the chicken BBQ sauces that we discussed on the show, and my leg quarters soaking in them . . . like, as we speak . . . while I’m typing this.  Tomorrow night will not get here quick enough.  The one on the left is Leo’s “Cornell Chicken BBQ Sauce” and the one on the right is Eric’s “Raleigh, NC Elk’s Club BBQ Chicken Sauce”.

As a side note, the Elk’s Club recipe has a long name because for some reason when my father learned to make it and all our relatives and friends came down from New York, he would make this and they all renamed it “Fred’s BBQ Chicken”, so I’m negating his narcissistic cultural appropriation and giving it back to the redneck racists that invented it.

and now . . . the recipes!!

Leo’s “Cornell Chicken BBQ Sauce”

1 Cup of Cooking Oil
1 Pint of Cider Vinegar
1 Tablespoon of Salt
1 Tablespoon of Poultry Seasoning
1 Teaspoon of Pepper
1 Egg

(Note:  I dropped the Salt to 2 from the recipes 3 and upped the Pepper to 1 from a half if you want to go by the REAL recipe Leo sent me from this link.  The listed ingredients are how I made it.)

The recipe does not suggest marinading the chicken for 24 hours, but Leo does, so that is what is happening.

Eric’s “Raleigh, NC Elk’s Club BBQ Chicken Sauce”

1 Cup of Water
1 Cup of Cider Vinegar
1 Cup of Ketchup
1/2 Stick of Butter
2 Tablespoons of Molasses
1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire Sauce
Red Pepper to Taste (I used 2 Tablespoons)

Mix over Medium heat and simmer for a few minutes then put in the refrigerator to cool before marinading.

I have had my recipe many times before and it is always fantastic.  I have not had Leo’s yet but it also smells like it will be really good.  I will update this page with the pics of the completed chicken after I have cooked it tomorrow night and let you know how it turned out.  If you make one or both of these, please share your results in the comments!

To close out this episode, I mentioned that my brother and I were going to be playing a new game that required that we play in co-op.  I recorded some videos while we played of our general “Beavis and Butthead” like banter while we play.  I’m going to start with a video that needs a little bit of a lead-in so you understand the context. . . .

The character that my brother played was, ironically enough, named Leo.  In the scene in this video we are preparing the get into a plane and fly to Mexico.  We’re getting into a plane.  Yeah, I repeated that on purpose . . . now enjoy!

Now enjoy the rest of our shenanigans!

It’s not even the games we play . . . it’s the conversations that come about as a result.  This is what growing up with a fucked up sense of humor sounds like.

PLEASE KEEP SHARING US WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY, or enemies, whoever.

Peace Out, Bitches!!

Ep 33 – Unethical Treatment of Spider Monkeys



Have you ever had to re-evaluate your life?  Is it because you listen to this show?  We hope not, but there are other reasons and Leo and I are talking about them here.  You’ll also get to hear what is involved in living in a rich apartment building in downtown Saint Petersburg, Florida, and it isn’t always as pretty as you would think.

Hey, if you’re gonna have them shipped to you, cut some fuckin’ holes in the box at least!

I give not one single fuck that you know this guys address.  Be sure to stop by and check out his APARTMENT.  (Fucking asshole)

This is just a screenshot from one of the many photos of the 3.5 million dollar joint at the top of the building, but feel free to click THIS LINK and see all the pics.

Unfortunately, this is a TYPICAL conversation I have while I’m at work . . .

Ok, fine . . . on to the friendlier side of the podcast . . .

I finally got a GRILL!!  I have REAL shit I can cook on  that isn’t an electric skillet or a shitty hotplate . . . or toaster oven . . . or microwave . . . or crockpot . . . or leaving shit out in the sun until it looks kinda done.

How many of you stove having motherfuckers are looking at me right now going, “Jesus, that poor dude.”

DONATION LINKS ARE DOWN BELOW . . . USE THEM!!!

Yeah, the last pic is depressing because I finally have a nice grill and it fucking rained.  Fuck you, Florida.

Well, I had a link to Leo’s new house that he’s gonna have, but Zillow has listed it as “Off Market”, so I can’t get a decent pic.  I will defer to Leo to get me one.

In the meantime, enjoy the pics of Leo setting a canoe on fire . . .

This here is the flag that these genius’ decided would represent them . . .

That’s it.  Me and this episode are tapped out.

PLEASE KEEP SHARING US WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY, or enemies, whoever.

Peace Out, Bitches!!

Ep 32 – The Kinda Naked Waitress



It’s not as exciting as it sounds.  Or maybe it is.  Either way, it was a thing that happened and we’re talking about it.  Find out how Eric tipped his waitress a day later and why you should be very picky about where you get your burgers, because whether you want to believe it or not, there are superior burgers and their prices will tell you if they are the ONE.

Listen, Fools!!! Burgers are fucking IMPORTANT, okay!!

Take note of this picture . . . it has relevance later.

This is my favorite episode of Find the Stone ever!!!  And you know why?  Because I (Eric) am on it!!  Listen to it, and feel the tension!

Cool shit from Instagram!!

Today’s episode. #podcast #findthestone

A post shared by Find The Stone (@findthestone) on

and this too!!

Full episode will be out this week! #podcast #findthestone

A post shared by Find The Stone (@findthestone) on

As you can hear, the rest of the week went kind of sideways.  I had brake problems, and that is BAD NEWS in a big truck.  Here are my findings as I sat stranded in a Walmart parking lot . . .

So, the day was shitty, but the food was good despite the fact that I only half paid for it that day.  This is the standard uniform for the Winghouse server.

Hey, I didn’t make the rules, I just tip them well . . .

No, Kara is not in there, but she is qualified to be.

The burger at the top of the page . . . . that is a Wing House burger, and you would be privileged to have one.

As I promised, here is the drunk guy that passed me by while I sat in the Walmart parking lot ….

If you have the wherewithall to sit through this sound . . . this is the sound that comes through on my UPS scanner to indicate when they have sent me a pickup.

I HATE this noise!  It makes my skin crawl.

If you have not been to BurgerFi and you have one in your area (for fucks sake, click that link and find out if you do), fucking GO!!  You will not be disappointed, and yes, and you can see by the picture below, the onion rings ARE the size of your head!

To round out tonight’s episode . . . this is the avatar that Leo deliriously thinks looks like him . . .

He’s fucking weird, but we let him stay anyway.

For now.

For Anthony, here is your “gift” from Leo.  Happy Birthday my Dude and also, Child . . .

Nobody loves you when you’re 23 . . .

Ep 31 – Not Our First Offense



Leo and I talk about how to not be offensive in the most offensive way possible.  It’s what we do and it’s the world we live in.  Hang out with us, we had a pretty good night and we got kinda deep into our offensive world.  Or is it?

I was HORRIDLY lazy this weekend, but I got the episode out, so in the next day or two, I will replace this sentence with actual shit that pertains to this episode.

Ep 30 – Not Episode 30



We’re back and Leo is struggling through some big changes, some have already happened and others are still to come.  Join me as I watch him drink his stresses away and try to work some things out in his head.  Find out what my son did for his Father’s Day contribution this weekend.  It was a whole lot more than I did!

Leo is looking to own a home again, and he seems kinda stressed about it.

My son got his first tattoo this week.  He’s pretty proud of it and he swears he didn’t cry.

Probably.

My brother, being my brother, congratulated him as getting the same tattoo as Bjork!

This is the video that Ari talked about on his latest episode of Find The Stone.  Be sure to go check them out!!

You want to laugh at Florida?  I mean, who doesn’t, right?  Check out some of the crazy Florida headlines here at Florida man . . .

It seems like Florida always gets a bad rap, and truthfully, they kinda earned it, but check out this page to get a little bit of an explanation as to why it might not be as bad here as everyone thinks it is.

Ep 29 – Not Bar Mitzvah Appropriate



We’re getting into how the comedy set is progressing, and I know that the title of the episode suggests that there might be a Jew joke.  There isn’t, but my dad has inadvertently written my closer and it’s DARK.  Also listen to me repeatedly refer to Tropical Storm Alberto as Alejandro and NEVER correct it! Our ability to be wrong is the majority of our charm.

New show, new mics, and Leo just can’t stop with the dick jokes.

For starters, I was playing around with this little storm this week, and I repeatedly referred to it as “Alejandro” in the show.  It was Alberto, and apparently I am a racist tropical storm guy.

Also, Leo went on and on about rolling the r’s, and one time he went overboard and rolled the o’s.

Please beg him to stop.

We went totally sideways right off the bat in this episode, so let me go ahead and show you the video I made Leo watch.  You’ll love it!!

Probably.

. . . . and how did it lead to this you ask?  Please enjoy the text conversation with my brother . . .  (if they are too small and you can’t read them, click them to make them bigger)

This here is the Instagram post that Natasha Samreny put up that caught me off guard while we were recording the show

If you haven’t already rushed out to buy one, this is, in fact, the GREATEST pen in the world . . .

Order them immediately or I will buy them all!!

I went looking for articles on why you shouldn’t call your kids stupid and was horrified to find even more articles on why you shouldn’t call them smart!  I’ll keep looking.

Finally, I am on a quest to find my prom picture.  I am looking, I have my mom looking, and yes, I even have my date from the prom looking . . . that’s right, 32 years later and we are still the greatest of friends and love each other to death.  We haven’t found it, but we will and when I do, it will be posted here.

In the meantime, enjoy these older pictures of me that demonstrate the fine looking man I once was . . .

Somewhere around 1989 . . . and yeah, kind of a mullet, on the roof of my parents house in West Jefferson, North Carolina. Yes, I was probably drunk.

Early in my Marine Corps career, the baby sleeping soundly in my chest turns 23 next month and you saw him sitting on his truck last week.

Visiting with my friend in North Carolina while on leave a year or so into my Marine Corps life. Same baby from the previous picture in my lap and my good friend, Tony. RIP Tony . . . I miss you, brother.

Ep 28 – CandiedSkull and it’s Weird Legacy



It’s Eric’s history, a little bit.  Leo wanted to bring my 15 minutes of minimal fame to light so we talked about it.  How it started, how it ended and how all of it resulted in simple poverty and disappointment. Ironically, a lot like this podcast is going! Perfect!

The infamous chrome skull known in the CS community as “Skully”, when he was in his prime.

This was the final version of the CS logo. There were many, but this one was the best.

One of the earliest versions of the CS homepage. You can click it and make it bigger.

All versions of “Little Me” have always had a skull of some form on the shirt as a tribute to CandiedSkull.

The demise of Skully after the dude in the pink shirt tried to park his Mercedes in an already occupied space at about 30 mph.

After searching through old pics and things, I verified that the life span of CandiedSkull.com and the community it formed started in November of 2006 and ended in 2011.  It was at it’s peak in 2007/2008.  What does a 12 years ago Eric look like?  Well, I was not bald.

CandiedSkull . . . gaming hero to awkward teenagers around the globe.

A brand new PS2 for my 38th birthday in 2006!

The celebration of said birthday was glorious.

The big game guide that put me on the gaming author map is  available on IGN to this day.  Resistance:  Fall of Man by CandiedSkull

Thankfully, I do not weigh that much anymore.

This is that same guide as it appeared on my website.

Of course, Anthony aka “LittleSkull” aka “Tony2Skullz”

If you’re a listener and fellow gamer, please add me on Xbox and PS4!

 


 

Just to make sure Leo stays entertained . . . here is his little piece of Pulp Fiction he can’t seem to get out of his head. . .

Ep 27 – Überstunden



We grabbed hold of our responsible side and recorded, edited and released on schedule!  This week (The title is German, obviously.  It means “overtime”.)  we’re talking about our experiences as Uber drivers so you drunks can get a feel of life on the other side.  Very little about it was good, and we’re more than happy to tell you about it.  Also, Zach from Dan’s Fans in St. Pete agreed to do an intro for us!  I’m sure he’s regretting it already.

 

These are Love Bugs, and they are boosting our economy right now.

In case you were wondering why they are so important to Florida’s economy, let me show you this picture I took of a truck at my warehouse today . . ..

Let’s get into the Uber shit . . .

If you ever get to Tampa, be sure to check out Tampa Uber drivers favorite 2:00 am hangout, La Teresita!

The video that started all the Uber uproar a few years ago . . . the Taco Bell exec that attacked his Uber driver and ended up getting maced.  Fuckin’ A right he had that shit coming!!  Respect your Uber!

This is how Leo has to drive a Nissan Versa Note . . .

Now for the good shit . . . MY own personal videos from Uber.  I spent a lot of money on that damn dash cam, so yer fuckin’ right I got some good shit.  Let’s start with the giant group of assholes from Central Ave in downtown St. Petersburg . . .

Ok, so this next one is a little long.  You don’t have to watch the whole thing if you don’t want to . . . but I advise it.  This here is my “Chicks with Dicks” ride!

This is the video blog I made almost 3 years ago using my dashcam that I bought for my Uber safety.  It’s funnier now than it was then.  Well, to me at least.  I have hair now.

I did actually find one of the videos I took driving down 7th Ave in Ybor City.  It’s not too overly exciting, but you get to see the hustle and bustle and the video is kinda shitty because it was drizzling . . . and you get to see the JESUS PEOPLE!!

Should you decide to come to Tampa and visit Ybor City . . . go during the day, and for all that is Holy . . . go to Columbia Restaurant!

Finally . . . if you have fucking HOURS to spare, PLEASE go visit Alanna’s YouTube Channel!  You won’t regret it!

Probably.

Ep 26 – Bucket List of the Damned



Ok, so we took a little too long of a break, so we kinda made up for it by recording a little bit too long of an episode.  We dug into a post of mine from the Opticynicism Blog and gussied it up a little bit, or made a mockery of it.  One of those.  Enjoy!

Here is a link to the original blog post, Bucket List of the Damned!

I will add more to this page tomorrow night (Tuesday, May 8) when I get home from work.  I was up far longer than I should have been getting this together and it was more important to me to get the actual episode tweaked and uploaded . . . so go enjoy the show and I’ll update this page tomorrow night!

This here is the shithead that was determined to kill somebody on the highway on my way home from work the other day.  If you ever wondered why Florida has one of the highest insurance rates in the country, this would be why . . .

This, ladies and gen . . . well, the two of you, this is where I live in proximity to Tampa International Airport:

. . . and while the airplane traffic is quite loud, this was the actual noise that Leo heard that was not a plane . . .
