APP Podcast With Perk900


Hey, remember when I said I had a fun surprise this week? I wasn’t lying! Live from the parking lot of one of Las Vegas’s finest Del Taco establishments, this afternoon we caught up with Brian to see what sort of excitement’s been going on during the first few days of this year’s Association of Professional Piercers convention. Among the topics of conversation: good times at a shooting range, the brick shit-house that is Buck Angel (evidenced by he and Sarvas disrobing for a photo together) and the lethal combination of the boner pill Cialis and grapefruit juice. And, of course, much, much more. Get it below. Get it.

(Ed. note: The sound is a little fuzzy at times, but I cleaned it up as best I could. Brian was in a bit of a noisy area. We’ll forgive him.)

Elayne Angel Podcast and Book Review

Elayne Angel admits she’s more conservative about piercing than many others, and as far as her new book, The Piercing Bible, is concerned, that probably works to her advantage. Over five years in the making, the book is billed as “the definitive guide to safe body piercing,” which ostensibly seems like a dicey proposition; there could be some (understandable) apprehension to an actual guide to piercing for public consumption. Angel cuts this off at the head, though, in an early section in which she states that “piercing (is) not a do-it-yourself hobby,” and that this is not meant to be a handbook for hacks or people who think they can blow off an apprenticeship. On piercing kits sold in some shops, for example, she writes, “These are no safer than a home root canal kit and must be avoided.”

BME Podcast #1: Allen Falkner Talks Suspension


Holy crap, it worked! Welcome, friends, to the inaugural BME Podcast. Isn’t this exciting? We figured it was time to revive the old BME Radio format and spruce it up a bit with all sorts of Web 2.0 nonsense, and so here we are. As I mention on the show, this is very much still in the experimental stages, so any and all feedback is very much appreciated, both in terms of the sound quality and technical aspects, as well as guests you’d like to hear and topics and issues you’d like to be discussed. If things go well, you could be hearing a whole lot more of my deep and manly timbre.

On today’s podcast, our guest is Allen Falkner, who joins us to discuss the upcoming SusCon he’s organizing, Nevada’s current attempt to ban suspension, the six-hour suspension Chris Glunt just performed, and more. (Also, visit him at Fade Fast for all your tattoo removal needs!)
