Frantic Thoughts

By Joshua Leslie
Frantic Thoughts is a show all about what is on my mind this week, sent directly to your ears. I'll deep dive into topics surrounding video games, movies, comics, tv, or anything that week that interests me. It can seem a little random at times, but I have a blast talking and ranting about what I love. Join me and hear how frantic my thoughts truly are.

Thanks for listening, and I'll see you on the other side, with plenty of stories :)

No Internet!!!!!!! - Frantic Thoughts Ep. 70
Imagine a world where there was no internet. It would be weird. I kinda talk about that but mostly I go into a bunch of other topics because I can't ever stay focused. Some call it a.d.d. or a.d.h.d. but I just call it insanity. Maybe insanity is a bit harsh of a word, but honestly I cannot even focus for 2 minutes tonight. You know what else is pretty harsh? Vodka. I rarely drink hard liquor, and that shit is probably the worst. It's like a cleaner for your insides. Like i'm drinking pine sol or lysol... one of the "sols" but way, way worse. I tend to avoid things like that. It's not really worth it to take shots and not feel anything then instantly feel sick. It can be a bummer. Yeah... anyway I should quit typing because I really don't know where this is going. I had a good time with this episode. Episode... that's such a weird word to say. Ep. Is. ode... I dunno. it's just like any other word, you say it enough and it starts to sound weird or odd. Seriously try it with ANY word... Fork Fork Fork Fork Fork Fork... starts to sound like I made up a word. Man I just realized I didn't talk about the Good Place coming back. That show is forking awesome. The premise is a lady passes away and goes to heaven, but she kinda sucks. Like a lot. she's a bad person. like real bad. and yeah it goes from there, but gets a lot weirder over time. worth the watch for sure. Uhm... oh yeah this is a PODCAST DESCRIPTION. I rant for 30 minutes about stuff. I hope you like it. The podcast main logo is by @BBshelbo on twitter, she's a great artist go check out her stuff. The music is from the scott pilgrim ost, it's rad. You should listen to it. Also, mario 64 theme at the beginning because I like it. Thanks for listening.
