FINALLY...the Bane...HAS COME BACK!!!...... . . . . . home.
Every episode in recorded in the hallowed halls of Shoptalk Podcast Studio is a special episode and this is quite possibly THEE most important episode of ILAPOW ever- no - EVAR!!!!
Handsome Bane is joined by the living soundtrack of ILaPow, Mr. Hir-O Beats, @DameGoneWild of the Shoptalk Podcast and studio, A former blood rival turned good friend, Ski and last but impossible to be least, his flesh and blood brother, G. Green.
Bane and Ski start the pod by clearing the air on the most confusing and hilarious beef of all time...TWENTY YEARS LATER!
Then the group discusses the accuracy of the characterization of the City of Detroit in the sitcom Martin. Is the main cast representative of "true" Detroiters? Are do the third tier and extra characters do a better job showing what Detroit citizens are like? What other pieces of media show Detroit in an accurate light? What others haven't a clue? Did you know Lady Shiva from the Batman comics is from Detroit? She is! All this and much more in this loaded episode of It's Like a Podcast or Whatever.
Pround member of the Hyphen Podcast Group.
The fellas are back at Level Ground and taking you way back to the times in the retail trenches. Everything that show Super Store talks about is true, but they don't give you ALL the details. In this uncut account, Handsome Bane, B Rich and the Incomparable Travoy Pruitt recount their time with the blue and yellow brand in the middle of the hood. Guys with guns. Girls with goods. B Rich starts a riot. And so much more.
Forgive the sound. Apart from the usual quality missing, the city of Boston was experiencing its first warm day in a long time, so every single motor in the city rode by our window. Seriously, Columbia Ave. should get a credit.
Second installment of our new show(?) FirStEps, with a new ILaPoW first, the debut of Hyphen Podcast Group Labelmate, Marcus "SHOWINMADLOVE" Robinson. We talk anime in an in-depth review of the First Episode of GOBLIN SLAYER, the hyper-violent show about life as a role-playing archetypal character with a vendetta against every. single. goblin. SPOILER and TRIGGER warnings as some of this stuff is hard to watch and harder to discuss. But the guys get through it. Please enjoy this momentous occasion as THEE Marc Rob and the Bane Man meet in their first one on one pod. Surely you won't want it to be the last.
Made a new friend today. Made a new friend on our way to making a new friend today.
Handsome Bane starts of the Pod with another Preramble about meeting an OG from his own city. Old dude could not believe there was another Detroiter in Boston, so he took that as an opportunity to rattle off all of his Motown accomplishments.
Later at Level Ground, The ILaPoW crew meets a new friend and new podcaster, Franny of In True Franny Fashion. They talk about her new show, her influences, first generation social media and martial arts!
A beautiful friendship is forged and of course, a great time was had by all. Prime outtakes were taken out for later listening on the next "Toaster Leavins" episode. In the meantime, be sure to look up Franny and her new show on any and all podcasting apps and sites. It's a great listen. Love Trust and Belief
Handsome Bane is fed up with everybody and their bitching about everything in entertainment these days. Nobody knows what they want in an ending for Game of Thrones, Sonic Sickos got vindication, petitions against Pattinson are signed before WB even substantiates the rumors. So in order to stay positive, the Bane man went and grabbed some scripts, grabbed some friends and started doing some table reads. Pardon our laughter on this one, but sometimes stuff be funny. We won't say who the usual suspects are on this one. But here's a hint: The Cave of WOnders is married to Nancy, Lady Olenna tells Spencer to be a Dragon and Bart Baddams reads a piece from the Bresh Brince of Bel-Bair. Enjoy!
Whatupdoe Loved Ones! We're trying something a little different this time. We've always been your home for everything from Pro Wrestling takes to Spiritual Warfare to chat with cosplayers. Well, we're working on a new project called "FirStEps" where we take the first episode of a show and deep dive on it so you can see if it's something you would find interesting. That way you're not spending 50 bucks a month on streaming apps just to watch The Office again. On this episode, one of the last Game of Thrones holdouts, KELEN CONLEY (B. Hyphen) makes his return to ILAPOW. We go over the first episode "Winter is Coming" and Kelen's impressions of it. In the end Kelen let's us know if he would like to continue watching Thrones or if it's just not for him. FirStEps is a show we submitted to the Google Podcast project. So wish us luck that we're able to turn this into something. LTB
Looks like the gang's all here. Most of the ILaPoW family has gathered at The 2019 Anime Boston convention at the Hyne's Convention Center. We have taken over the Quiet Room on the 5th floor and turned it into the Save Point, an active safe space that helps to ensure con-goers will be able to go decompress or step away from the convention without worry that someone will try to accost them in any way. Friend of the show, Retro Ric from the Super FanCom Show stops by to play a little "Can You Top This" and talk about his show. There may be some baby sounds in the background. That's just Everyday Olive being clingy to the Returning Everyday Rogue. It's cute.
It's a packed house when Handsome Bane invites the ladies of Obvious Nonsense onto the show for the first time. They discuss their creative outlets like comics, their podcast (Enter Podcast Name Here), how to be young and informed, and the book they have been writing. Bane also tries to not look all that washed next to this group of youngsters. He does well enough to get a round of "Whatchu Know Bout This Here?" a game that was JUST named in this description.
Aaron Greenlee is the patron saint of ILaPoW, so this celebration of his life was of the utmost importance. When he passed away in 2011, he didn't just leave a void, he left a huge responsibility to all those who survived him. Today, Handsome Bane honors his brother by reviewing one of the many things Aaron is synonymous with, THE REAL Transformers the Movie. With Bane on this journey is his rival and friend, the crotch-grabbingly-great Miles Amadeus Prower. They float through the plot and spend a lot of time of the small idiosyncrasies. If you've never seen it, there will be spoilers. If you HAVE seen it, prepare to laugh with us as we take a trip down Memory Lane with the greatest 90 minute toy commercial.
So after about a week's hiatus, Everyday Rogue returns to help Handsome Bane roll out the red carpet for the boss of the Hyphen Podcast Group, none other than the President of the company Mr. BHyphen himself! The gang recaps the winner of the Most Exquisite Black Film Royal Rumbowl as well as the winner of the ILaPoW Ultimate Care Package giveaway. Thanks to all who voted and participated in the great debate.
In more pressing matters, HB defends his hot take that The Walking Dead's Negan is a better human being than Breaking Bad's Walter White. Everyday Rogue plays the impartial moderator as The Hyphen takes on the role of Heisenberg's defense attorney. Points were made and minds were (possibly) changed as we looked at things through a different scope. We understand the importance of perspective and its effect on the viewer. So who do you think wins this? After you listen to this, feel free to weigh in with your opinion?
It's been a pretty trash Black History so far. But the ILaPoW extended family looks to change all that with the (fictional) Black Film edition of the ROYAL RUMBOWL! Tough decision were made and feelings will be hurt. Hang on and pay all the attention. The plot thickens when WE CAN'T MAKE UP OUR MINDS! We need your help deciding a winner. So one random loved one will be chosen to receive a free ILaPoW stimulus package as a thank you for helping us know once for all which is the GOAT of Black Film.
Handsome Bane invites the NerdlyWeds, Eenae and Dan to the CastleVania home office to talk love, relationships, cosplay, anime and interesting ways to describe Harry Potter binge sessions. It's evident that they can't control themselves when they start gushing about one another and their second chances for love. Bane tries to stir the pot and turn them against each other in a rendition of the Newlywed game. Get your barf bags ready and enjoy our new friends and the story of dating while geek.
On the first leg of Handsome Bane's Saturday gauntlet, he stops into the public library in Grove Hall. There he meets Cagen and Barrington of Comics in Color, a group designed to introduce and foster a love of comics to all people. They speak on topics such as representation, artists and authors, as well the accessibility we all have to our own creativity. Comics in Color is celebrating its first full year and looks to expand into its own convention soon.

Oh so close but yet so far. The Truesome Twosome look into how it feels to be right, even if you don't want to be. The Royal Rumble is discussed briefly. Last week's ep should have been called "Spoiler Alert". They get into everything from vaccinations to the Book of Job. Special shout out to the good folks down at DataRecoveryGuru.com. They are our unofficial sponsor for this episode. Listen to HB's testimonial and tell them ILaPoW sent you.
We kick off Season 4 with a field trip to Troy, NH. Major shout out to Granite Roots Brewery for hosting us and crafting delicious beers. The gang catches us with some celebrity home-goings, while celebrating Betty White outrunning the Reaper for the 97th time. Gillette calls everybody's manhood into question. And Aero Mexico is giving discounts to whichever part of you is Mexican. Later, the homey Kayin Patton comes by to talk "Game of Thrones", but not in the way you might think. Oh yeah! Tell us what you think of the new intro and outro. They are of course brought to you courtesy of Hir-O Beats and Greenlee.
This wasn't supposed to be an official episode, but it turned into one because The Truesome Twosome don't know how to slack off. Among the things discussed:
Nice kid helps a girl cover up
Arisia Sci-Fi con, its good, its bad and its really ugly
NXT Takeover review
Our Royal Rumble predictions. Sweatergod we made these before the event took place.
Also, you can enjoy the Classic Royal Rumble theme while hopefully no one puts a claim on it.
Love, Trust and Belief, yall.
In the season finale, the team gets to wind down with our new best friend, the SPITFIRE KAT CHINETTI! The Main Bane and Kit Kat start with her many fandoms, which leads to her cosplay background and somehow ends up with Kat teaching us all how to yell at perverted photographers (dudes with cameras) in our underwear. As usual, much fun was had and new friendships were forged over bourbon and warm sweaters. This was actually recorded BEFORE the Powwy Awards, so that sparkling chemistry you saw during last week's show was created here.
It's Award season and it's time for the brightest and best of 2018 get the shine they're due. Categories include: -Finesse Playa of the year (Scammer of the Year) -The Golden Du-Rag -Rest in the Most Peace -Meme of the Year -ILaPoW Guest of the Year A familiar frenemy makes the trip from the late 40s to join the roundtable to discuss a year he's never even had any imagination of. Nancy drinks very hard liquor and holds it like a BOSS! And newcomer to the ILaPoW scene KitKat Chinetti finds her tribe here at the CastleVania dining room! A special shout out to our not-sponsors, Watts Club Mozambique for sending us money from all the way in the mid-nineties.
We're six days into the new year and changes are happening. But the more things change, the more things stay the same. Your Truesome Twosome reunites through the miracle of low-res Skype video. But you'll get the picture when you see just how easily they get back on the tandem bike and ride together for the foreseeable future. SO MANY TOPICS are tackled in this one including: The passing of Mean Gene Okerlund Priscilla Kelly Stuffs a tampon in someone's mouth R. Kelly is scum and so are his supporters Netflixing on mommy vacation Being a mommy AKA What a difference a year makes! Personally? I'm cool. Follow our IG and Twitter @ila_pow Like @ilapow on Facebook
The Gang is taking a break to be with family and celebrate the new year, so Cap'n Handsome (Bane) fulfills an earlier promise he made on a previous show on audio YOU'VE NEVER HEARD BEFORE! The past returns as former guests from 2018 reappear through the magic of old recordings. Marvel as they all check levels and shoot the breeze that no one thought would ever see the light of day. Cackle as everyone is just trying to get right before the starter pistol of a greeting, "WHATUPDOE LOVED ONES!?" is propelled from the lips of your compelling protagonist. Who cares what the Simpsons think? Clip shows are NOT cheesy. Happy New Year!
The Main Bane has to go it alone this week as everybody has been scattered to the four corners of the earth during Christmas Eve Eve. Armed with his new ILaPoW gear and Thot ass Santa hat, he tells you the original plan for the Christmas episode and exactly how it all fell apart. After a little stumbling, our compelling protagonist takes you through his top 5 Christmas gifts of all time OFF THE TOP OF THE DOME. We then check in on BABY WATCH and the poor decision making of Olive AKA Everyday Rogue Jr. Toy Drive was a success. Now it's all over but the thanking. LOVE TRUST AND BELIEF! See You Next Year!
Special thanks to Hir-O Beats and Doss the Artist for providing the soundtrack with their Christmas Classic, "Peace King" EP that can be found here: https://soundcloud.com/doss-the-artist/sets/peace-king-doss-the-artist
Actor/Cosplayer/Model/Philanthropist/Vigilante Donnie Francis stops in to talk about all of his shops, jobs, past jobs, fitness, sponsorship and Christmas criminals. Donnie talks the quick transition from cosplay to modeling as a result of a couple costumed shoots that led to some other opportunities. He also takes us through the audition process. The couchless kind. Lots to learn and lots of laughs in this one. So if you've ever wondered what it's like to be on the ground floor as a future Hollywood heartthrob, here is a sneak peek.
This week, we welcome Sci-Fi and Cat enthusiast, Writer ME Lysette to the Castlevania Home Office. After a lengthy discussion about pretty much everything, we focus long enough for M.E. to tell us how she grew up and her intake of media. She gives some advice to people struggling with "writer's block" as well. Finally, she and Handsome Bane give you 9 Christmas films you don't normally think of around this time of year. Now you can spice up those holiday movie marathons with some REAL cinema. You're welcome.
Toy Drive is still happening. If you can't donate a toy, ILaPoW's cashapp profile is $ILaPoW. All the money goes to Boston youth whether they are affiliated with ABCDBoston, The Boston PD drive and/or you want to make a direct donation to Level Ground MMA gym https://www.levelgroundmma.org/give/
We Love you, We Trust you, We Believe in you. And we thank you.
It's a family affair when the ILaPoW team starts the holiday season off by giving thanks to all the people who don't receive enough shine this time of year. We begin with a lover's spat that gets squashed immediately. They get into the heroes and stories to support their cases. The room is just full of friends and family so this episode probably has more love per capita than any other episode of ILaPoW. And we're just getting started!
The fellas gather in the CastleVania Home Office to review the 1993 cult classic, "Fear of a Black Hat" starring a bunch of black guys you're sure you've seen before, but can't name (Rusty Cundieff, Larry B. Scott, Mark Christopher Lawrence) who play the group Niggas with Hats in this mockumentary. THERE WILL BE SPOILERS. It's all jokes about the rap game as it was, and the remnants that still somehow shockingly remain relevant today. When a rap group is made to choose between getting paid or "keeping it real", what will happen when the group chooses both?
We pretty much laugh the whole time about our favorite parts and quotes, so if you're looking for an in-depth, dissection of a film, we tried. If you've never seen Fear of a Black Hat or our review makes you want to check it out, you can find it on Amazon Prime Video. Hell, you can probably find it on YouTube.
We're also collecting for our toy drive. Comment if you want to know how to help.
Cashapp $ilapow and every dime will go towards making a child's holiday very happy.
New friend of the show, Alexia of ABCD (Action for Boston Community Development) stops by the office to talk about the organization's services, community involvement and how you can help.
Other topics discussed:
-Stan Lee's send off
-Stone Cold Becky Lynch wanted for murder
-THE THANKSGIVING DODGEBALL GAME/TOY DRIVE KICKOFF at 10am-12pm
An inspired Handsome Bane takes to the streets to talk Levar Burton reads and the wisdom he received from Ken Liu (author of "Paper Menagerie and Other Stories). He also describes his visit with Hudson Henriques and the Level Ground MMA gym in Dorchester. The Thanksgiving Dodgeball game is ON! And only one team can claim the tournament championship. Space is limited. Sign up now.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN LOVED ONES!! The team here felt that we never celebrate the holidays and while we're all gearing up to tear South Boston ALL THE WAY DOWN (collecting candy, not public property) we needed a movie to get us in the mood. Netflix graciously presented us with TALES FROM THE HOOD 2. There ARE mild spoilers, so with TFTH2 only clocking in around a total 1:29hr, it's a really quick watch. So check it out and join us for a quick dive into this urban horror anthology.

ILaPoW family member, Nancy Lamerique takes over the show with her friends Nahomie and Kendra to discuss the last season of HBO's Insecure. But before they can even draw breath to speak, they are interrupted by the compelling ANTAGONIST, Ashy Bane. He brings opinions from the smokiest, rustiest pits of Twitter and the clash of the sexes begins. Each character receives an in-depth analysis of their actions and story arc. The panel wraps everything up with theories and their wishes for the characters in Season Four.
The Wondertwins continue their conversation from last week by ditching the heavy stuff and talking all about Fantasy Wrasslin'! It's Hell in a Cell weekend, but neither of them is excited about it. So our heroes reach into the Great Beyond and pair up wrestlers from the worlds of the living and the dead. It's WrestleMania Heaven, baby!
A family member makes a triumphant return to the Castlevania Home Office. Everyday Rogue takes her rightful seat as the co-host of ILaPoW to talk about all the insane ways her life has changed since becoming pregnant.

The team welcomes a long time listener and family friend, Hudson Henriques. He comes to talk Jiu-jitsu, cartoons and cheese crackers.
The sound cut out at one point, but we were able to scrape together some choice cuts. Wouldn't be an ILaPoW without some issues. We gon' make it.
This episode is all over the place. Literally. We start in the Castlevania Office to explain some stuff. Then, through the magic of recording, we go back in time to a card game that was played in the Castlevania Dining room. Tragically, the sound cuts out and end up back in the office for the dismount. The ILaPoW inner circle does not disappoint. Plenty of one-liners and random outburst to make you look insane on your morning commute. Love, trust and belief.
Whatupdoe! Our compelling protagonist, HB comes to you from the Castlevania Home Office and with him as usual is Producer/Engineer of the show, Mike Lamerique. On this, the day of his daughter's birthday party, the Bane Man and Lam discuss pandering politicians, yet another set of Angry white guys and how Netflix is literally showing you what they think of you.
The Bane Man comes to you from the kitchen where he used to give you sage advice, mask and all. He talks about the other thing nobody is mentioning in all the James Gunn mess, explains the term "Happy Wife, Happy Life" all while fixing his laptop. The very laptop he edited and posted this podcast with. Ooh DAMN! Spoilers...
Handsome Bane invite the heir to his throne, Jadalyn to the show to do short review of Fan Expo Boston 2018. Jada has harsh words for everyone from the producers of "Coraline" to Amy Jo Johnson's Pink Ranger...again.
The girl and her old man discuss how dope the 90s were.
And the two weigh in on the new outfits the Disney Princesses wore on the snippet of the new film "Wreck-it Ralph 2.
I gotta level with you Loved Ones, this episode has amazing content with awful sound. We're still trying to get our grits together with the audio. If you can tolerate the noise, we welcome Dart Adams to the Castlevania Office and just kick it about all our fandoms and the history of Boston.
It's the season finale of the World's Greatest Nomadic Podcast. We managed to get back into CastleVania but this time we're in the home office. Sporting a sweet Bob Ross original in the background, we got a lot to cover.
HB recharges his WhatupDoe batteries and regales us all with tales of his trip to Detroit.
The team reviews The Incredibles 2...Deadpool 2 is also mentioned and the two films, while very different, have a lot in common.
Everyday Rogue has some info on her life that is going to completely change the landscape of ILaPoW going forward. (cough she's leaving the show cough) we wish her well, but she has a little business to take care of on her way out.
This week, the Bane man is still in the motherland, Detroit, MI. He and long time friend and rival, The Crotch-Grabbingly Great Miles Amadeus Prower crack open the DSM-V and diagnose your favorite felt friends. ILaPoW puts Sesame Street through the lens.

It’s the one year anniversary of It’s Like a Podcast or Whatever and the crew is split. So what better way to celebrate than to have TWO episodes from TWO cities take place on the same day? Everyday Rogue welcomes a true Loved One to the show, Nancy Lamerique as they spin yarns and fight with technology. You will be regaled with such tales as:
Nancy’s origin story to America from Haiti
K-Rock sort of witnessed a murder while playing Harriet the Spy.
Nancy controls the fate of every child’s playtime in her youth, bums out about adulting and recounts the time she and Mike’s sibling rivalry erupted into a pier-six brawl.
A young Everyday Rogue shows off her arts and how martial they are.
For the ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of ILaPoW, the gang brings you TWO episodes from TWO LOCATIONS! Talk about too much favorite! Handsome Bane goes back to his roots in the Big Oh Boy. There, he meets up with his childhood friend and Detroit Co-host, Blake Lugosi. Also making his official debut to the show he created the music for, Mr. Omari "HirO Beats" Hall. Also here for the first time and for a few impactful mins, Ms Shanti Dee. Extra Special Shout out to Dame Gone Wild for being a gracious host and engineering the session.
Tough decisions were made and feelings were hurt, but we were able to objectively come to a decision to crown the right Blerd. In a field that included the likes of Jordan Peele, Issa Rae, Donald Glover and LeVar Burton, who will come out on top? The ultimate answer? You for listening. I hope you have as much fun watching and listening as we did recording this.

A rare, unkempt Handsome Bane goes it alone for only the second time in nearly a year to bring you down the spiral staircase of society to the murky depths. What awaits us? InCels, or the Involuntary Celibates: A bunch of dudes who think they should have access to women, but are furious they do not!
Also, it's another edition of the segment, "What We NOT Gone Do", where we politely leapfrog over things the media has beaten to death over the week.
Love, Trust and Believe we're gonna get through it though.
This week we welcome Co-Founder of Killer Boom Box and Boston's own music encyclopedia G. Valentino Ball.
K-Rock and the Bane-Man dispense with this week's bad news and talk briefly about their weeks.
There isn't much time for pleasantries as the crew must get to work on the 30 song One Hit Wonder #ROYALRUMBOWL!
Two random songs will come out of the bowl.
The Trio will vote on a winner based on
1. Commercial success of the song.
2. How "one-hit-wondery" the song/artist was.
3. Quality of the actual song.
Winner goes back into the bowl.
Repeat until a winner is crowned.
G. Valentino Ball can be found on Twitter and IG @gvalentinoball and @KillerBoomBox
The Mancave is closed again. So we're out like Da Band when Diddy closed down the studio. Thankfully, friend of the show, Nancy Lamerique opened up her kitchen to us.
We really are nomads.
We start with a bunch of bummers and eventually climb our way out of the gutter.
School Shootings, racist prick lawyers, people screwing up someone else's to further their agenda. Michigan State owes a lot of people money for a terrible thing and everybody'd asking Handsome Bane about it. HUMBUG!
Then we go back to our notes from the beginning of the school year and help you dumb ol' freshmen get ahead in college before you even skip your first 8 oclock. Get a pen and pad or SUBSCRIBE to the channel so you can review this sage advice whenever you need to.
STORYTIME WITH K-ROCK!
Finally, we start giving people their own theme music. Surely we're not the only ones who pretend to be walking down the aisle to a wrestling ring in our everyday travels. That's why we wanted to do this segment. So we can imagine what it must be like to be other people.
Vote HERE to see what songs will make it into next weekend's ONE HIT WONDER RUMBOWL http://pollmaker.vote/p/G3PGP715

First of all, I want to apologize for getting you guys all ready for a viewer mail episode for it not to happen this week. We could have forced it, but then it wouldn't have been what we WANTED to give you guys. You deserve better. All 3 of you who watch and listen to us.
So THIS week, Handsome Bane goes solo-dolo into the city of pod. He introduces the new segment, "What We NOT Gon' Do". He channels his inner Kelen Conley and makes velvety smooth transitions from topic to topic. He also quotes JJohnson313's quoting of an article...or an essay or something. Don't let the fact that it's fourth-hand information take away from it being true.
Pointing guns at high school kids for prom season is not only not funny, it's hack material! HB gives you the building blocks for your relationship with your daughters to like...build trust in THEM. Or whatever.

March 31 Anime Boston
Hynes Convention Center/Prudential
Soundcloud has been giving me all the issues when it came to posting the completed edited version of ILaPoW 2ep9, so here it is in all it's raw glory. The Duo returns to the Castlevania Mancave to talk anime. Then Bane goes off the rails and makes a shocking confession: he doesn't even like anime. Can Sister K-Rock bring her big brother back to his senses? Can she...CONVINCE HIM?!
The Twosome return with a vaunted guest, your favorite science teacher Chantelle Ramirez. We talk about what the word racist really means. What other tools could Chantelle use in her classroom before she picks up a gun? How does she keep all relationships in her class appropriate?

The Truesome talk about:
All the causes in October.
