Colleen O'Farrell Pitts: Choosing to Be Happy No Matter What

This is an interview I did with my mother's mother, Grandma Colleen Pitts (O'Farrell) in 6 or 7 years ago. She died on February 14, 2024, and so now I'm releasing this episode in her honor. We discuss a variety of things—losing her husband to cancer, difficulties in families, depression, losing my dad in a car wreck, and even the blackouts of World War II. She was a gem of a woman, and I'm excited to share a little bit of her perspective with you. I love you, Grandma. Jamey Bennett

DJ Sean P & Royal Ruckus Mixtape: The Life Cycle of Man and Cicada

The Life Cycle of Man and Cicada By Joshua Gibbs and Jamey Bennett The average man knows little of cicadas, thinks rarely of cicadas. And yet on the rare occasion he hears the word “cicada,” his mind invariably drifts off into those few truths about the insects which he was taught in grade school: the cicada lives underground for seventeen years, emerges briefly, dies. A certain kind of man cannot recall such claims without immediately thinking of himself, staring into the distance, and wondering if he is truly a man, or if he is, in fact, a cicada. The life cycle of a cicada appeals to a man. When I was a child, I was taught that cicadas slept for all those seventeen years. Sadly, not every naturalist is still convinced of this, though poets yet carry a torch for the truth. To sleep for seventeen years, to wake briefly, soon to die…how sweet would life seem if it had been anticipated in dreams for so long? The poet is neither convinced that nature has commanded the cicada to spend so long underground. The poet knows the cicada has chosen to stay underground all these years, and that he might emerge from the earth when he pleases. The cicada has said, “It is better this way,” though his residency with the dead, in Hades, is not obligatory and not tenured. The cicada is free and stays underground by choice. It is purely coincidental that seventeen years is the given term of these cicadas. Someday, these cicadas will have their Che Guevara, their Óscar Romero, their Picasso…and he will sleep for thirty-six years, or fifty-nine, or ninety-one years. We suspect the creature who makes company with Hades himself for seventeen years might be capable of doing so interminably. Have we numbered every cicada emerging from the ground? Have we truly kept track of their departures, their arrivals? Have we only said they sleep “seventeen years” because we tired of putting hash marks on the cell walls? “No one will count longer than this.” Who can say? The death and lust rattle you hear this summer’s eve might be a millennium in the making. The life cycle of a cicada appeals to a man. The man wants to believe that he, too, might only have been sleeping up until now, and that the emergence from the death of sleep this very morning might be the inauguration of a brief, golden age. “Will I now truly live? Has it always been a slumber and am I only now waking?” The man wants to believe this is true. He has long been underground, and no matter his activity, he recasts all his labor as nothing more than a patient biding of time. A man interprets patience into the long haul of his already-lived life. “I was always waiting.” A man longs to see the light of day as though he were a cicada, fingers emerging from the dirt, and then hoisting himself out. A man longs to see the world as a kind of egg from which he hatches after a beginning-less gestation period. “It will all end soon,” says the cicada man, although the cicada man is forever caught between the contradiction of a thing beginning and a thing ending. Is this the seventeen year slumber or the two months of waking? The question cannot be answered, and every bottle of wine might be the last before death; and every bottle of wine might be opened, poured, and break on the tongue as a revelation— not the end, but the beginning of the end. After a thousand years of sleep, what kind of death is possible for the cicada? The cicada is the resurrection creature. The chasm between life and death narrows to crossing points suddenly, unpredictably. While science has said the cicada wakes only to procreate, the poet knows the cicada wakes simply to live. Is a life of sixty days less meaningful than a life of sixty years? Meaning is not discerned in quantity; a moment in the soul is without end. The man who imagines the cicada emerging only to procreate falsely intuits sudden verve, anxiety and desperation in the cicada. How could such be true of a creature with the patience to wait forever?

Matt Wells: Monday Night Brews, Beards, Brews, Shipwrecks & Brews

Hello Beautiful People! We got an UNRELEASED pre-pandemic episode! This one comes from back in 2017. Jamey sits down with Matt Wells at Monday Night Brewing in Atlanta, GA. Matt is a friend of Greg "Manchild" Owens of the legendary crews, Mars Ill and Deepspace5. After the three of them were hanging out, a podcast spontaneously broke out between Jamey and Matt. They chop it up about music, faith, and, (surprise) beer! Who knew how similar craft beer and music world are, but as the conversation goes on you hear the similarity of songwriting and brewing beer. You'll get insights into the beer industry and brewing, as well as some beer education as well. And naturally, this was recorded inside a brewery! After the beer talk, Matt talks about growing up in a Southern baptist household, playing music in the church and how it was actually a positive environment for his growth, and how that led to him being in a band, moving to L.A., forming a new band, rejecting a record deal and sticking to his guns. We close the show with the shipwreck of what led to his divorce, how he's dealt with that, and we finish with his beard care regime and of course one last tasty brew! Matt isn't really on social media so if you find him cool! If you live in Atlanta go check out Monday Night Brewing and grab a brew!
