Episode 132: Political Kaleidoscope
Jim Fetzer, a former Marine Corps officer, has published widely on the theoretical foundations of scientific knowledge, computer science, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, and evolution and mentality. A magna cum laude graduate of Princeton who majored in philosophy, he earned his Ph.D. in the history and philosophy of science. He has received many awards and forms of recognition for his teaching and scholarship.
McKnight Professor Emeritus at the University of Minnesota Duluth, he has also conducted extensive research into the assassination of JFK, the events of 9/11, and the plane crash that killed US Sen. Paul Wellstone. The founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, his latest books include The Evolution of Intelligence (2005), The 9/11 Conspiracy (2007), Render Unto Darwin (2007), and The Place of Probability in Science (2010).
Myke Hideous is an American gothic rock singer and songwriter from New Jersey.
He is the founder and frontman of the East Coast gothic rock band The Empire Hideous, which was active throughout the 1990s and into the early 2000s. He also performed with The Bronx Casket Co., Spy Society 99 and the Misfits as a fill-in vocalist (May–July 1998: South American and European tours).
Hideous auditioned for the Misfits’ original reformation in 1995, losing out to Michale Graves.
The following year, Mark Steiner released a documentary film entitled To Build an Empire, about The Empire Hideous.
In 1998, he was hired as a fill-in vocalist for the Misfits when Michale Graves took an indefinite hiatus because he did not want to go on an extensive tour outside the United States. He did vocals at all the group’s shows on the Europe and South America tours that summer, but Graves returned to the band later that year after the tour was completed.
After his Misfits experience, Myke Hideous briefly fronted his horror punk side project, Spy Society 99 and The Bronx Casket Co., with whom he recorded the albums “The Bronx Casket Company” (1999) and “Sweet Home Transylvania” (2002, credited as “Spy”).
In 2003, Myke released a new studio album, “Say Your Prayers”. Myke felt inspired to resurrect The Empire Hideous shortly after 9/11 when a friend remarked, “if ever there were a time for The Empire Hideous to resurface as America’s number one, apocalyptic gothic rock band, now would be that time”. Myke reunited with former guitarist Jeff Austin for the record and it was met positively by fans.
In 2009, Myke announced he would be working on his final album and also began collaborating on the documentary “Living the American Nightmare: The Story of a Rockstar”. This documentary features Myke Hideous as the main center-piece, and was loosely based around his 2002 memoir.
It included footage of his early concerts, along with interviews from Myke and many musicians who had worked with him over the years. It also included the final interview Peter Steele would give before his death in April 2010.
At the beginning of 2011, Myke released his final album of new material, “The Time Has Come”. This record included the cover song “Moving in Stereo” by The Cars as a free download on his website to commemorate the death of his long-time friend Peter Steele (lead vocalist of Type O Negative), as it was one of Steele’s favorite songs.
Within the next year, Myke also released his Spy Society 99 material for the first time on CD, “Die Punk, Die”, a 12 track album featuring nine songs only previously available on cassette and three new tracks and an album of remixes, “Remixes Through Time”. Some tracks from “Remixes Through Time” were included in the “Living The American Nightmare” documentary.
In 2016, Myke Hideous re-released his autobiography entitled King of an Empire to the Shoes of a Misfit. The Memoirs of Myke Hideous. It includes an added chapter, chronicling his professional and personal life from 2002-2013.

so mr. Horn you claim that if the majority of the population wore a mask covid wouldn't have mutated? you need to stick to your UFO claims . tho both are silly to label as facts the latter is relatively harmless. i do agree w/ you that left right politics are a meaningless façade.you speak w/ too many absolutes.
"Do you think it's possible the human population can last another 10,000 years?" I DON'T THINK IT'S MAYBE POSSIBLE HUMANITY LASTS ANOTHER 10 YEARS! GREAT SHOW!
VERY FUNNY SHOW ~ I needed that...Thanks
Mr. Masters you failed to show one thing Q prophesied. it was a psy op that spoke in newspaper vague horoscopes that had to be deciphered. people then argued on the different BS conclusions that never came to fruition. if you are still suckling from the dust of that asinine teat you are delusional.
enjoy a very different kind of show
on the topic of evolution and natural selection maybe the corona virus is ment to help us with the next stage of evolution so shouldn't we just let it run its course and see who's left over at the end if anyone
