Golly gee willikers, 2020, you’re proving a rather harsh mistress, and nobody seems to know your safe word.⁣





Okay so I’m going to be indelicate here:⁣

This fucking sucks.⁣

The Current Situation is yet more evidence of the degradation and injustice of our times, where viciousness and villainy appear victorious at every turn and charity and civility are circling the drain.⁣

And I’m going to be honest—I don’t know what the solution is. ⁣

It’s certainly not virtue signaling, though, so I’ll leave that to the hordes of hectoring hypocrites who gladly posture on social media about Important Issues™ but give precisely none of their time or money to the causes they publicly champion.⁣

(Spoiler alert: they don’t actually care.)⁣

What I do know, however, is that Martin Luther King Jr. was correct when he said, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”⁣

And so I reject any and all forms of hate, bigotry, and inequity, and strive to understand and uplift my fellows despite all reasons and invitations to do otherwise.⁣

Ultimately, we’re all in this cauldron together and subjected to its cruel pressures, and I believe the greatest lesson we can learn is to love.

Anyhow, sermons aside, how about a quick hose down of some crass Legian commercialism? Let me load my potato gun with some Nickelodeons slime. All right, there we go. Fire in the hole. 

What did you think of this episode? Have anything else to share? Let me know in the comments below!


Gosh, golly, G Wilker’s 2020. You are proving to be a rather harsh mistress and it seems nobody knows your safe word. Tomagotchi Nickelback, Anti Disestablishment Arianism. No dice. Okay I’m going to be indelicate here because this fucking sucks. The current situation is yet more evidence of the degradation and injustice of our times where viciousness and villa appear victorious at every turn, and charity and civility.

Circling the drain, and I’ll be honest, I don’t know what the solution is. It’s certainly not virtue signaling though, so I’ll leave that to the hordes of Hectoring hypocrites who care so much that they’ll gladly posture on social media about important issues, but give precisely zero of their time or money.

To the causes they publicly champion. Spoiler alert, they don’t actually care. What I do know, however, is Martin Luther King Jr. Was correct when he said, Darkness cannot drive out darkness. Only light can do that hate. Cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that, and so I reject all forms of hate, bigotry, and inequity, and I strive to understand and uplift my fellows despite all reasons.

And invitations to do otherwise. Ultimately, we’re all in this cauldron together and subjected to its cruel pressures, and I believe the greatest lesson we can learn is to love. Anyhow, Sermons aside, how about a quick hose down of some crass legion commercialism? Let me load my potato gun with some Nickelodeon slime.

All right, there we go. Fire in the hole. First up is an update regarding legion’s new sexy bottles. In my last meandering missive, I talked about the new look, which of course you can’t see if you’re a podcast listener, but you could see if you went over to legion over on. Blog where there was a post that showed the new labels and revealing that to everybody was a bit of a shrinker because I wasn’t sure how this new look was gonna be received.

We had done some informal focus group sessions and gotten good feedback, but that’s different than. Emailing hundreds of thousands of people and mentioning on the podcast, which gets tens of thousands of listens per episode. And so I was curious how it was going to be received and much to my delight, the feedback was overwhelmingly positive.

Not everyone liked it. Of course, some people preferred the existing design to the new direction, but even those people were quick to tell me that so long as the formulations remain top shelf, they couldn’t care less really how the packaging. Looks, and many people wanted to see how the bottles were gonna look, because previously I only had labels to show, but not bottles.

And now thanks to the powers of computer graphics, I have renderings of how the bottles are gonna look. And if you want to check them out, just head over to legion, go to the. If you just go to Effects or com slash blog or click on blog in the menu, you will find a post one of my monthly update posts that this podcast is based on.

And in that blog post, you can see images of several of the new products. I think there’s way plus in there. There is Recharge, Pulse, and Phoenix I believe. And if you want to share feedback, please do good, bad love, hate roller skates. Just let me. All right, moving on. Let’s talk about getting a healthier gut because did you know that what happens to your food as it goes from whole A to B has a profound effect on your health and wellbeing?

And did you know that hypocrites, the ancient Greek physician and father of modern medicine once said that all disease starts in the gut? And did you know that Brussels sprouts are actually tiny? Demonn cabbages conjured by an ecut sous named Lady Andromeda on the curd blood moon of 1133. Okay, so I made the last one up.

The first two though. Real news, and this is one of the many reasons, it is so important to live a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise, lots of nutritious food, and plenty of restful sleep and supplements can. Two, which is why Legion is working on two products for improving gut health. The first is called balance, and it is a non product, so not a probiotic non that will be releasing next month, and it contains clinically effective doses of burberine.

Artichoke extract and digestive enzymes to assist in the digestion of protein and fat in particular. And the primary benefits of this supplement will be one, less intestinal inflammation, which can aid with GI conditions such as I B, D, and Crohn’s. Two slower intestinal motility to allow more time to process food and absorb nutrients.

Three. Enhanced Food Digest. And four, improved insulin sensitivity and blood glucose control. In other words, balance will help your body better process and absorb the food you eat. And this can enhance your health and wellbeing in several ways. Now, the second. Gut health product we’re working on is going to be called Bio and it will be a probiotic, so a bacterial product that is still in the works.

Unfortunately, the strains that we want, the exact ones that we want are patented and are very hard to buy. I don’t really understand the point of having a high quality patented ingredient that. Manufacturers can’t even get. But hey, we’ll get there. We’ll get it done. So more on this soon. Okay, The next little bit of newsy news, How is shopping in our store and paying later?

Buy now. Pay later. And this is thanks to Sizzle. No, not sizzle. Not sch. Nozzle, not zl Sizzle. S E Z L E. This is our nifty new service that allows you to buy our wearers. And then pay later in four equal and interest free installments over a period of six weeks. And with no impact to your credit, either.

Important point there. And yeah, there’s no catch really that. That’s it. You shop in our store [email protected], and then you choose sizzle at checkout, and then your order is shipp. To you and you pay over time. So do you even sizzle, bro. All right, One last little bit of good tidings is some knuckles to throw to last month’s champion giveaway winner.

Dylan S, who won two bottles of. Pulse, that’s what he wanted. So as a t-shirt and a blender bottle, and 100 reward points. And if you wanna win, cool stuff two, then join Legion’s Rewards program over at legion Or if you just go to legion, you’ll see rewards on the menu.

And you join for free and then you get points whenever you buy stuff. And you can get points in other ways too. Like you get free points on your birthday, you get points for spreading the word about legion on social media. You get points for leaving product reviews, and I’m probably forgetting one or two or maybe even three other ways you can earn points.

But again, it’s all over at legion And then if you get enough points, you unlock the champion tier. And then once you are a champion, Legionnaire you will be automatically entered to win cool stuff every month. All right, Franos. I think that’s enough chin wagging for now. Stay safe and I’ll see you in the next.
