We talk about John's personal trainer, National Novel Writing Month, Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon, Pasta with the Police, drug busts, and the song "My Dog Jesus" by  CJ Watson. We also expose the lyrics to the Cops theme song, and ask a very important question about Snowpiercer that no one else is asking: Why does this movie look so weird?

October 25, 2015 08:24 PM PDT

John Cox is a badass longshoreman with some of the wildest sea stories ever told. He's written these stories into a one-man play called The Money Fi$h that he is performing himself at The Hudson Theatres in Los Angeles.

We talk with John about hiding condoms in piggy banks, punching his step-dad in the face at age 13, military recruiters, immigrants coming out of a shipping box, a wild sailor named Junior, nearly dying numerous times out at sea, flying hooks mutilating his friends, Russian pirates, the terrifying 40-foot swells, and how fishing in the Bearing Sea is way harder than being in the military.

Female Condom or Diaphragm?

We also talk about one-man plays and how they aren't performed out here in the Midwest, freestuff.com, and John has female condom/diaphragm confusion.

Carl Russo, author of The Sicilian Mafia: A True Crime Travel Guide, traveled to all the Italian Mafia hotspots in Sicily and took photos of where the godfathers lived, where various Mafia murders took place, and where they buried their victims. 

Carl tells us what he learned about the Mafia while poking around taking photos in Cosa Nostra. We hear about the Sicilian Mafia's infiltration of Italian health care, agriculture, and other basic areas of life, how the Sicilian Mafia has transportation contracts with local Italian government, and most importantly - how he got away with publishing this book without getting whacked. (Hint: try finding a photograph of Carl Russo!)

Chris Brake Show EXCLUSIVE

Carl also tells us an exclusive story about Downtown Palermo that almost didn't turn out so well for our hero, and a blog post he wrote that exposed a Mafia wedding. We also blow the lid off of Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi’s underage sex parties, having models on his cabinet, and too much bunga bunga.

Chris and John come down with the sickness. John recommends Olba’s Pastilles cough drops.

We experience the Curse of the 40 Oz Pimp, again, but this time we've got a secret weapon. Listen as we break the curse and talk to the 40 Oz. Pimp about seedy characters stealing from him and cooking him grilled cheese sandwiches, his new job, and the town Constable raiding his house for fugitives. 40 also explains some of his controversial lyrics, and assures us he is not promoting child abuse.


Curse of the 40 Oz. Pimp

40 Oz. Pimp | Chris Brake Show CB109

Every time we have 40 on the Chris Brake Show, it's always a travesty trying to get him on Skype. Every time. This time it was so bad that it spilled over into the live show! We had to tap into 40's computer and log into Skype for him. Thanks to DeskRoll.com for their awesomely-easy software.


40's Top Three

40 wanted to come on the show to talk about three things“The retards, the new job, the new album (CP5)." And yes, we know the word 'retards' is offensive, just like most of the things 40 says.

The Retards


40's found himself in a bad situation. Apparently "the retards" refers to some seedy heroin users who have been coming over to 40's house, cooking him grilled cheese sandwiches, and stealing cash from secret hiding places. We get 40 to reveal the secret hiding place live on the show, and you won't believe where it is.

The New Job


40's got a new job at a tattoo shop called Evolution, but it's not what you'd expect. Or maybe you would expect it. But I know I sure didn't. 

The New Album (CP5)


40's writing songs and doing cardio to get ready for some shows. 40 tells us about one of the new tracks, "The 40 Oz. Bounce”.

Other Topics

We represent the Strange Label shows by reading the entire StrangeLabel.com live schedule. And we hear more about the Girl at the Gas Station who has been freaking Chris out regularly lately. She's turned up the heat and is now weirder than ever. But in a weird way.

24-year-old Sam Forline went from ADHD college dropout to successful entrepreneur making over $1,000 a day. Sam tells us how he started his first company, Blue Collar Scholars, and how he started making money. We also talk about a flying drone cat, new technology being used to blackmail people in new ways, Ashley Madison getting hacked, and what a typical day is like in the life of super ultra entrepreneur Sam Forline.

Sam also helps Chris figure out how to get paid to do what Chris loves to do: smoke weed and paint.

Chris is an Atheist. John is a Christian. And Daniel Johnson is a High Priest at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons). So a Christian, an Atheist, and a Mormon walk into a podcast...

John tries to figure out how Mormons and Christians are different.

Chris points out that Mormons are Christians.

Mormon High Priest Daniel Johnson explains the mysterious Mormon rituals, "The Oath of Vengeance," the mysterious Mormon Garments commonly known as "Magic Underwear," and the time he was shot at and took one on the chin from some drunk guy in Argentina. We also talk about how religion was hijacked by the government, and Daniel suggests that the Garden of Eden is in Missouri.

Clownalyn Monroe. Half clown. Half Marilyn Monroe. Full awesome.

We talk to Clownalyn Monroe about quitting her job to become a clown, getting the cold shoulder from Clownvis, wearing Clownverse shoes, busking on Venice Beach, making balloons for children in Beverly Hills, and the fine line one must walk being both a burlesque performer and a children's clown-for-hire.

Bonus! A special appearance by Clownalyn's neighbor, Michael De Gainsborough. Also known as Christian Slater's dad!

Playboy Playmate Charlotte Kemp just wrote a new book called Centerfolds - a collection of juicy first-hand stories from the women of Playboy. Charlotte, crowned "Miss Budweiser" and "Best Breasts in the USA", talks with us about life at the Playboy Mansion, accidentally being scouted at age 17, the heinous incident on the Sally Jesse Raphael Show, the hairiness of Robin Williams, and throwing a Backgammon board at Hugh Hefner's face under strong suspicion that Hefner was cheating. At Backgammon.


Centerfolds has all sorts of interesting stories involving celebrities and other first-hand accounts that you won't read anywhere else. Charlotte says Hugh Hefner (or Hef, if you're nasty) has a "What Happens at the Playboy Mansion, Stays at the..." rule - but she published the book anyway because she felt like these women's stories should be told.

CHRIS BRAKE SHOW EXCLUSIVE: Bill Cosby Assault Allegation

Charlotte Kemp also tells us a story that's not in the Centerfolds book: the time she met Bill Cosby at the Playboy Mansion. You'll have to listen to the episode for the details, but it wasn't a jolly Bill Cosby that Kemp describes meeting. Far from it, dude.


Check out Charlotte Kemp's website at CenterfoldMemories.com

Pick up a copy of Charlotte's book Centerfolds on Amazon.

Centerfolds by Playboy Playmate Charlotte Kemp

Retraction / Screw Up

There's a really weird thing in this episode. We all came down with a case of George McGovern/George Wallace Confusion. Well, Chris didn't. He was right the whole time. But I suppose he was confused. So, yes. We all experienced George McGovern/George Wallace Confusion. But it should be pretty funny for you to listen to.

Indianapolis hip hop artist Almighty Spit is in the studio! We talk to Almighty Spit about weight loss, fighting in the Indianapolis music scene, getting beat up for saying 'nigga,' paying for beats vs. using free beats, and making tracks with Logan Log. Spit also talks about his studio technique, his girlfriend smuggling meth into a prison, and the proper way to make a toast.

“If you got a name that begins with Yung or Lil, I ain’t even gonna listen to your shit.”

New Almighty Spit Songs

We also listen to two new Almighty Spit tracks: "Son of Satan" and "Get It". Spit also describes a sexual experience he recently had that was so good he had an out of body experience and cried afterward.

Almighty Spit / Chris Brake Show Jam

Spit freestyles to some fresh Snowgoons beats live on the show. And there's even a live jam with the Chris Brake Show and Almighty Spit where we all do our thing.

Courtney Love hired a giant fan named Greg Frederick to design her tour merchandise. She's sold the merch all over the world and made thousands of dollars. Courtney Love refuses to pay Greg Frederick a dime.

You believe the nerve of this lady?

Listen to Greg tell the story of how he went from lifelong Courtney Love superfan to getting taken for thousands of dollars by the corporate greed machine known as Courtney Love, how it feels when your childhood hero breaks your heart, Love's manager Sam Lutfi, and how Courtney Love is deleting her fans Tweets telling her to pay Greg.

Courtney Love's Isolated Guitar Track

We also listen to some isolated live audio of Courtney Love's actual guitar playing. Turns out, at least at this particular show, she sounded like a no-armed blind woman hacking at strings like a barbarian. You've really got to hear this. I (John) couldn't believe it. I still can't believe it.

Then we listen to an isolated live audio Linda McCartney track, which was equally as bad. You've got to hear this to believe it.

Courtney Love, Pay Your Artist Greg Frederick

Courtney Love Email Correspondence with Sam Lutfi and Greg Frederick
"Gay superfan kids, hell [sic] do it for free/very little and im [sic] all for it." - Courtney Love

Check out Greg Frederick's website at VinylPopArt.com for more information and hilarious photos from the Courtney Love debacle. You can also buy some of his awesome artwork. Support the cause!

#CourtneyPayGreg on Twitter

Courtney Love's superfans are on Twitter Tweeting Tweets to Courtney telling her to pay Greg Frederick, with the hashtag #CourtneyPayGreg.  Courtney's just deleting the Tweets and acting like nothing's going on.

Tweet "Courtney Love Cobain" today at @Courtney and tell her to pay her artist, Greg Frederick! And for the third time, for goodness sake, please use the hashtag #CourtneyPayGreg.


"Nobody knows this, but..."

Greg told us that after he initially published his story, Courtney Love's lawyer contacted Greg and said they wanted to settle the situation "civilly." But Greg never heard from them again.


Dora's Not Dead

Dora Argh's not dead. She was having a long dream about the Chris Brake Show. Chris tells us the details of this dream (it involves us sitting in the studio doing the show).

Long live Dora Argh!

Chris [Wants to Decorate a] Rock

Chris has an interesting idea involving a rock in his yard. But this proves complicated when Chris must clean the rock. How do you clean a rock? Well, we talk about that.

Other stuff from this episode

We learn that Shellac is a resin secreted by the female lac bug, on trees in the forests of India and Thailand.

We learn just how John got away with peeing on the boat unnoticed?

We remember the time that Sexy Sarah peed on a tree.

We pose the question... Does Producer Bryan's wife Brittany make Bryan pee sitting down? Chris presents stunning evidence.

We learn about Adam Ricki’s “Justin” Box - for "Just in case" something happens, he can grab this Justin Box and he's good to go.

We recall the time Adam Ricki and Chris tried to make Sodium Acetate, or "hot ice."

We also talk about the Lifestraw and how it shows a guy drinking straight out of a nasty old pond with it. Click on the image below to go buy it so we can make a few pennies!

Seriously though, look at this thing.

Look at that nasty water! Lifestraw makes it taste great.
