The nightmare and what kitchen life is really like with MASTER CHEF and ENTREPRENEUR
JOHN NESBY. He and his wife own and operate the Green Light Diner in Poulsbo, WA.

 Green Light Diner 

John drops knowledge about food, business, mushroom hunting, clean food, and he even shares a nice simple Avacodo recipe. Mise en place.

Mise en place was very interesting to me because it's also what I think of as a musician. I have tools and I do enjoy them in their own place.

(French pronunciation: [mi zɑ̃ ˈplas]) is a French culinary phrase which means "putting in place" or "everything in its place." It refers to the set up required before cooking, and is often used in professional kitchens to refer to organizing and arranging the ingredients (e.g., cuts of meat, relishes, sauces, par-cooked items, spices, freshly chopped vegetables, and other components) that a cook will require for the menu items that are expected to be prepared during a shift. -wikipedia

For next time... This is a text I just got from John about the podcast. I will have him back on this summer so send in your cooking questions and I'll ask him. Here's the text:

"I'm bummed, we never even got to talk outdoor grill cookery.  Hour flew by. I've been obsessed with my grill lately.  I cook everything on that thing and have begun incorporating thrift shop antique lodgeware cast iron pans onto the grill for some of the most amazing and simple "clean" dishes ever.  I'm even doing grilled garden vegetable scrambles and cooking the whole thing outdoors at home.  It's so good. Grilled zucchini, crooked neck squash, charred potatoes with green onions, bacon and cast iron scrambled eggs, topped with sea salt and Chulula Sauce. That's what Chef eats at home these days."

Shane Told, lead singer of Silverstein joins Mike this week. 

Shane Told has a story to tell and he does it well, first with his band Silverstein, but second his solo material River Oaks, or now his recent endeavor into the fray of podcasting with a great show called Lead Singer Syndrome where he talks to… yup, lead singers about the craft, the life, the layers of the people you listen to sing their hearts out. It's a great concept and I'm gonna be on the program soon enough. Stay tuned for that as well. Here's a little bio from his page but the sure way to enlightenment is to listen to this episode.

"What is it like to be one of the most important members of a band? Shane Told, frontman of the critically-acclaimed rock band Silverstein, brings you candid interviews with all of your favorite singers on this podcast. Is it really all sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll? Find out for yourself on Lead Singer Syndrome." - http://www.jabberjawmedia.com/lead-singer-syndrome

 

In this episode we know we are being watched and listened to but you'll have to listen to really grasp the creepiness of what we are talking about.

This is also the first episode of the Mike Herrera Hour in collaboration with Jabber Jaw. It's a way to collaborate more on the podcasting end of things. I like what Shane is doing and I'm liking the Break it Down Podcast with Matt Carter. In terms of content, those two shows go with my show pretty well. So we're all in good company. Another easy way to get to the show and other great shows. Click the link below to see my page on Jabber Jaw.

Drummer Travis Barker joins Mike this week! 

Blink-182 rehearsals, work ethic and passion for music, Travis’ love for hip-hop and his career into that after Blink- 182 and The Transplants broke up. The benefit gig with Goldfinger, Mike and Travis. He also talks about recording with Matt Skiba after Tom Delonge’s exit.  Business, Crossroads Restaurant in LA, family life with his kids, MTV reality show, how surviving a plane crash changed his life perspective, drug abuse, relationships and tons more! 

MHH153- Travis was on his way home from Blink 182 rehearsals when I got a chance to catch up with him on the phone. We talked about a ton of topics. We got into his day to day routines to bigger sweeping life changes and that includes some behind the scenes talk on making the new Blink 182 album with record producer and Goldfinger front man, John Feldmann.

They just released the first single off the album called, Bored to Death. It sounds really good and I love how open the verses are. Just go to Blink182.com to check it out.

If the photos below confuse you and you are wondering what this band is with Travis, Feldy, Frank (Feeble) and yours truly is. It was called Travis Barker and the Res-Erections (hehe). A one off cover band throwing down with some 80's and 90's music. A loose set of fun cover songs punked up and a few Goldfinger jams too. We got together for a benefit show to raise funds for the school that Travis' kids attend. It was a really fun night and rad times were had by all. The audience saw something pretty insane that night! And yes, sometimes you just get a phone call from a friend asking for a favor and you find yourself on a non-stop flight to Los Angeles to lay down some low end. I love this life and not really knowing what's gonna happen all the time is part of what makes it so exciting. Scary too but if you aren't a little afraid of the possibilities then maybe you aren't reaching outside your comfort zone enough.

Mike and Travis will talk why cruise ships are better than airplanes, killer remixes, and the new Blink-182 record. Forget Meet the Barkers you’re about to see a whole new side of Travis as he reveals the pleasures and the pain that shaped him into a music icon. Did we mention tune-in? Tune-in and tell your friends!

Find him on Twitter: @travisbarker and @blink182.

Mike talks with Ben Weasel this week! They talk about touring, his public persona, modern day music industry/society, songwriting, The Catholic Church, Outcasts, and a lot more! 

I grew up in the days where you got a cassette with an album on it. Dubbed from a dub. I didn't know what bands looked like or how many Twitter followers they had. My only evidence or context of the band was based off listening intensely to the music. My imagination ran wild with larger than life images of what the band was. But they were larger than life to me. For example. I thought the band ALL was this huge rock band just from listening to Allroy's Revenge on a dubbed cassette over and over. Even when I saw them play on a school night in 91' at the OK Hotel I still hadno idea what the band looked like. This was no different for how I discovered Screeching Weasel. My brain hurts to think back that far but I almost always think of my days ditch digging and doing manual labor and maintanance for rental apartments and duplexes. It was my buddy Rich and myself in a his truch blasting Boogada Boogada Boogada from one job to the next. Punk rock was the soundtrack to my life. Work, play, rain or shine. Screeching Weasel was there for me. Thanks for doing the podcast Ben. Take a listen and learn a few things about Ben Weasel. I didn't know what he looked like till I met him in person last year when MXPX played our first show with them in Portland, OR.

Ben Weasel (born Benjamin Foster) is a punk rock musician, best known as the lead singer and guitarist of bands Screeching Weasel and The Riverdales.

If you care about how policies and legislation effects you, this episode is for you! Actually, scratch that. This episode is for everybody.

I don't know all the talking points and all the right things to say but I do get passionate about some issues in this episode of the Mike Herrera Hour.

I'm joined by Gasoline Heart's Louis DeFabrizio (@GasolineHeart) from the back of his Brooklyn where he found a spot to hide from his wife and twin baby boys for some eye witness accounting of the NY Democratic Primary Voting Day. This alone is worth tuning in but that's not all!!

Mike takes Skype calls from friends and fans and talks to Jason Call from Daphne Loves Derby about how they got 5 million downloads.

 

MHH 150

How an unsigned band got 5 Million downloads while the music business was breaking and more stories from you, my friends and listeners. My main guest is Jason Call of the band Daphne Loves Derby and now Mariner. We talk about his band's space rocket to success by gaining more than 5 million downloads for just 1 song through sites like PureVolume and MySpace and how that led to a record deal, world tours. How did it happen? How did they do it? Did they hack the system or were they just the first to do it?

Special Note: This episode I'm taking your calls on skype. It was a very last minute decision to do a podcast solely based on who I could talk to via skype at that very second. Thanks to Louis DeFabrizio, Nate Allen, Thiago Messias for the chat and everyone else that I didn't get to actually talk to on the podcast. I'll do this again and it will continue to improve.

I also announce the winners of the something free from the Merch Arsenal drawing. Yes.. I do that.

Social Media Conference, Public Speaking, Marketing, Networking, DIY Entrepreneurship, and more with Wesley Hoffman and Corey Smale. Find them on Twitter: The Strangehouse, @thestrangehouse, Wesley Hoffman, @wesleyhoffman, Corey Smale, @coreysmale. 

MHH147 -  Wesley Hoffman. Corey Smale. Today’s show is brought to you by Casper.

Meet the guys behind #STRANGEHOUSEWORKSHOP and @thestrangehouse Podcast. A new kind of marketing conference. Food and brew included. They hired me to speak about my longevity and how I learned to connect with my audience above all else. And that led me down the social media path pretty early on. We started our website MXPX.com on March 19, 1996.

In this episode we talk mainly about the event and the business atmosphere in St. Louis. March 11. We also cover the actual planning and workflow that was done to prepare for the event. We get a little granular at times but ultimately we bare out some gems. I'm hoping you agree. We get inside a few deep layers here. I really hope you can get something good out of this talk. I did. I'm always learning new ways to live and think. As I travel I'm always meeting new and interesting people. St. Louis was no exception. Listen and enjoy a look inside the stories that make up our lives. And please send in your comments in the section below or wherever you see me on social media.

TOPICS- Delayed flight. City Museum. Food. Drinks. Social media. Songs. I always change my set. So I do things I don't plan. And don't do things I do plan. It's like joy/pain. Bitter/sweet. 

MORE TOPICS- Morning routines. weekly habits. Mentioned docs & TV- Viceland- Fuck that's Delicious, Bompton with Kendrick Lemar. Recent Books.

Are you an entrepreneur or Freelancer?  I'm a dichotomy. I'm both. But something like a business type can't really define you. We are always making micro adjustments in our lives and in our world view. Business is the perfect example because it never stops changing and common sense is common of reason.

A big turning point and catalyst for change in my life was inevitable. But specifically for me it was continued self-learning. Books. Then The Internet. Podcasts. YouTube. Documentaries. Live Performance. I study humans. And writing.

Questions. Is exercise important to being happy? What does it do for you? If not, why don't you need it?

2 Pac. Hit me up. Bad boy killas. I work out to shit like that. I get serious about it. But I also think a lot. Solve problems. Ideas just hit me. Hit me up. I'm always writing down lines and ideas between sets. On my phone usually. I look like a teenager glued to my phone. But I'm writing it down cause every time I don't, I forget.  I also work out to songs like, Fat Bottom Girls by Queen. Try not getting a burst of energy with that kick drum pumping and Freddy giving so much of himself. SO music can definitely move you. However, we don't talk about Queen in this episode. Get after it!

FREE MUSIC CONTEST- After the weekend I will pick 1 lucky winner from my email list. PRIZE-That person will get to choose 1 of any piece of music off of the MXPX Merch Arsenal.

WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE?

That something new for me really worked out well! I'm in St. Louis, sitting in my hotel room after a big day at the #STRANGEHOUSEWORKSHOP event that I spoke at. I had expressed some self doubt and nervousness on the podcast about the (at the time) impending doom aka "the TALK".

Meditation when he wakes up.

MHH145 with James Hunnicutt - A singer/songwriter/musician from Washington State, USA...

"I believe that the most powerful & universal languages in humanity are love & music...
I do what I do because I love it. My love for life & music empowers me & I have learned that what I do empowers others from time to time as well & this realization is invaluable in my opinion... It brings an inner wealth along with it that $ & material possessions can't even come close to comparing with... " -James Hunnicutt

Find out what it was like to watch Stanly Kubrick's A clockwork orange for the first time  while also taking shrooms for the first time. Friday night at the powerlines! 

We both grew up in the same areas and our paths have criss-crossed now and again. James in an amazing performer and songwriter as you will hear at the end of this episode. He gives us a special performance of his song, Risk the Fall live in Monkey Trench Studios. Our buddy and fellow bad ass musician, Mykey Haslip joins us in telling some fun stories and good humor.

Just have a listen and judge for yourself but I really enjoyed the hell out of this one.

Taking the nation's temperature from the youth perspective with Tyson Evans and hear an exclusive acoustic performance by Tyson right from my couch in Monkey Trench Studios. His band Second to Last from Lodi, CA (yes I brought up the CCR song) has toured all over the country with some pretty well known acts that yes, he does name during the conversation. Just get in there and check it out. We covered a lot of ground and much of it was recent happenings and commentary on the US presidential race and our social and racial climate not only in this country but locally right here in Bremerton.

Bass player, Derik Envy joins Mike this week. Former- Unwritten Law, Current- True Rivals, The Briggs, Teenage Time Killers.

How to learn songs. Tattoos. Playing together on tour. Crazy America politics. What if trump wins?

I love it when something just clicks. You've been struggling with a new skill for months and it just doesn't seem to be going anywhere. But then all the sudden you go back to task or part that you previously struggled with and with no practice on the part between now and that last time you struggled with it over a month ago, you nail it with not much effort and it just clicks.

That click takes time, practice, research and the desire to be taken seriously.

Derik Envy is an American bass player and multi instrumentalist. Formerly of many bands including bass duties for San Diego's finest, Unwritten Law. That's where I first met Derik, we toured together. We get into that a little bit here. Currently playing in True RIvals, The Briggs and Teenage Time Killers. He's got a great work ethic and brings that to the stage. I love watching him up there jumping around and swinging his bass lines all over the stage. And check out his tattoos. He's a monster at this point and almost fully covered head to toe in tattoos. His head would make most mamas cry. It's bad ass. Check him out on Instagram @DerikEnvy or Twitter @DerikNV

In my conversation with Derik we talk about his learning process. Some of the skills it takes to be a professional bass player. The workflow for learning a lot of material in a short amount of time. If you play an instrument you'll wanna sit in on this conversation. We do veer off into some other topics but it's mainly a winding path from the hills of Montana to the concrete streets of Los Angeles, CA and all the crazy places between and beyond. Here's a video of True Rivals backing me up on my version of Rancid's Olympia, Wa.

Forgive the road noise and poor quality audio. Sometimes it's better to record with what you have rather than wait for a moment you will never duplicate. I'm glad I recorded this conversation. No prep, no notes, just an early morning ride to the SeaTac airport to play some rock shows. To do work.
