Welcome back to occult symbolism and pop culture. I’m your host, Isaac wise up today we’re doing the the 2023 Wrap Up Show. We do this every year. It’s the end of the year special. And you know, what can you expect today? Well, we’re going to talk about pop culture moments. We’ll count down the top 10 episodes. And I’ll tell you why we might not do that, again. We’re going to talk about big moves, we’re going to how we get guests on and apparently appearances that I made celebrity deaths, what else? Those are predictions. We’ll talk about the results from 2020 twos predictions, as well as make some more for 2023. Your favorite moment of the show? Mine as well, because I’m never right. But you never know once in a while, maybe I’ll sneak one in. I will petition you why I think I’m right. Let’s see here. Yeah, that’s about it. Right. So let’s, let’s start out with pot log. It’s a little early. I’m recording this December 26. So technically, there’s five more days left in the year. And you know how it goes sometimes at the end of the year, the celebrities start dropping off. So a premature thing, but with the schedule that I’m looking at, I gotta get I gotta get this one out. I don’t know what to do. I gotta get it out. So this one has to happen early. Post Christmas Special, if you will. Alright, let’s start with the best pop culture moments. If you were called in 2022 I can’t I claim and rightfully so. That Will Smith. Slapping Chris Rock was the moment and since then we’ve had a whole lot of things that have happened. We see how that was 2000 VMAs. A very similar incident happened very strange. But 2023 We had lots of strange moments. Let’s go down through a bunch of merit first, and then I’m going to give you my my Isaac certified. Top pop culture moment. David grish remember him? He he’s doing the rounds. Talking about how he saw a bunch of Alien UFO Proof. He was blown. He was blown at so hard that whistle is blown out whistle so hard. So a new a new player in the UFO agenda. And we’re still wondering, is it a big grift? Is it a deception? Is it Project Blue Beam? Or is it reality? We don’t know yet? Well, I don’t know yet. David Lynch our beloved David Lynch got divorced. I got Lauren the studio next to me. She’s she’s rolling her eyes. She don’t like that at all. How? How can such a great artist, which you know, it’s not actually surprising a lot of these artists are they’re really hard to live with. have a relationship with because they like to create, right? And I get that you got to create Elon Musk, he changed Twitter to X. Everyone’s still calls it Twitter. Probably the one of the dumbest brand changes of all time. He and if you recall back when he took it over, I think it was in 22. He took it over. But early in the year, he kept teasing how he was going to reveal the truth about Fauci call it the Fauci files. You remember this, I looked, I looked through my whole twitter feed for the whole year, to recap a lot of these things. And he, he kept talking about how he’s gonna release it and prove to the world, you know, cuz here’s the thing with Elon Musk, right? When the COVID pandemic happened, he refused to shut down as as factories. You know, because he’s a capitalist, right? capitalists, they’re more interested in money and keeping the business machine rolling than than anything backs, right? Regardless of what you think about the virus or not the non virus, whatever, doesn’t matter. He being the businessman was refusing to shut down at all. And he felt like his rights were being infringed upon. So he became a sort of, I don’t know, a right winger is the right word, but he came a sort of anti government sort of guy, more so than before more libertarian than before. And part of this was to expose the truth about the pandemic. And he said he was going to do it. And I kept saying, I was DAF trolling him on Twitter because I didn’t believe he was going to actually reveal anything because I think he’s just a try. I think he’s like, there’s this new red pill movement for Grifters, and he’s one of and I was right. I kept saying, Robert, you ain’t releasing nothing Quit acting like you’re gonna do it. It’s like these people that are going to reveal the truth and they didn’t look they just don’t. And if the world’s richest man doesn’t have proof, he’s got an agenda and he’s got the proof. Well, then where is it? Right? And look, I’m not defending Fauci, he tortured puppies. Alright. I think I think the lab the lab thing was a far more critical component to this whole thing than what we were allowed to know. But alas, I still paid Elon Musk the $8 a month for the blue checkmark. I did not my proudest moment. I’m not happy about it. In fact, every month I think, oh, I should I should turn that off. I don’t want to why am I giving this guy eight bucks? You know? And what it does is it supposedly enhances your reach. So I mean, if I’m a financial business standpoint, it makes sense so I do it you know me right? I got my beliefs but I’m not too depends on what it is right. Sam Tripoli he did. This is all Twitter related by the way he did Adam Carolla show big moves for mum and Sam. And then his Twitter got unlocked. And that was the first domino because after that, you’ll recall Alex Jones was let back on Twitter. And there was also a little bit of truth or drama because David Icke had a bit of a conspiracy about this as well. Saying this was all deception and some ritualized theater. And this is where a lot of people start talking about this idea of this new red pill group. Right there’s your your Andrew, Tate’s and Tucker Carlson and Roseanne Barr, she’s joined in, she’s lumped in there with them. And I just did a whole show about her capitalistic leanings and selling her soul to the devil and Tucker also wears the red string Kabbalah bracelet, and Alex Jones and Elon Musk they’re all sort of this the new alternative media right? All highly sauce. And then I did a whole episode about the symbolism of Twitter being rebranded to x and synchronistically enough it was the 666 episode I upload it to the Apple podcast feed. Seems odd. And Elon, you know, didn’t like I don’t like Elon but then he pulled me back in when he told Bob Iger and Disney to go F themselves. Which was pretty funny. A great pop culture moment but not my favorite. Not my favorite. He he was doing a while wearing the the the James leather coat with the sheep for the you know, James from Twin Peaks. The motorcycle Cody, where’s speaking of Sam Tripoli? Did you see at the beginning of the year Machine Gun Kelly confronted Sam Tripoli about a joke. He didn’t like the joke. And Sam almost had to pull out that Krav Maga on Machine Gun Kelly. You know, that would have been a great fight. I would love to see that. Then I’ll also have the lightning bolt hit the Christ statue of Rio de Janeiro. We had the coordination of the new was a king king lizard people I don’t know. Do we had the submarine with the billionaires in it that imploded in the ocean? Young Thug is on trial. His old team allegedly snitch allegedly I don’t know. Like gonna, you know, he was part of this group and all of a sudden he’s allowed to lead out of jail. A lot of people say oh, they’re snitching on thug. And we found that but what was honest we found out that thugs YSL group or gang or whatever, you know, they’re trying to say it’s not a gang. And I don’t know I’m not that big of a thug fan anyway. But they had found out he was doing goat sacrifice rituals. Illuminate confirm. Yes indeed. Another big one, we had the MH 370 The flight that disappeared 10 years ago. Videos releasing of UFO circling around it very odd, very odd. Sound of freedom the film dropped, showing the world about child trafficking. And the founder of Operation Underground Railroad Tim Ballard got railroaded, got shredded shredded into pieces. A since the movie, he was forced to leave and resign. Well, maybe not forced. He resigned from Operation Underground Railroad which he started to save traffic kids, which is what the movie is all about. He was forced to leave the He was the CEO of Glenn Beck’s Nazarene fund. And he got booted out of that.
And we find out and I thought, wow, that’s really weird all these things are happening and then we find out why it’s because he had all these sexual assault allegations against them. Where he claimed he was doing undercover work with he would take women on the allegedly take women on these, these missions to save kids and he bled Okay, now, we got to, we had a lot of the traffickers make them think that we’re married. So we got to do all the things married people do. We’re gonna sleep together, we’re gonna shower together and do all the things, all the things that’s that’s what the allegations are then, and here’s the thing, Ballard there’s another theory about all this as you already know, the Ballard was using this movie and sound of Freedom and Operation Underground Railroad as this big sort of scheme to get people to join the LDS church in a way. And then the LDS church disowned as asked to because he was exaggerating about his connections to the I don’t know the main profit guy who’s ironically also named Ballard. Different not related, though, apparently. And then Glenn Beck came out who Glenn Beck also LDS came out and said that he felt duped and betrayed by Tim Ballard. Everyone turned their back on this guy. Then, Fabian Marta who helped finance the film, got arrested for child kidnapping. And then Jim, Kavita, who plays Tim Ballard in this movie, which is all fabricated by the way. Turns out the whole story is not true. Got accused of sexual misconduct by seven women. Now these are all accusations, right? Anyone can accuse anyone of anything. Totally true. So I certainly don’t know what happened with any of these people. But it is interesting, right? From the conspiracy standpoint, we always like to try to expose people that are messing around with the kids and you think man, okay, either this, either this is insidious, because these people claim they’re saving kids and they’re really doing the opposite or, or even not quite the opposite. They’re at. Maybe they’re messing around with women, sexually, and maybe they’re kidnapping kids and all this sexual assault allegations. Like that’s a pretty bad thing. Like maybe they’re grifting and hiding behind the shadows of that thing. Or maybe they’re exposing too much and this system sort of like making sure they keep their mouth shut? I don’t know. Don’t know, the saving the kids thing is the most sort of controversial area of conspiracy theory. You’ll recall lots of people this year said Mel Gibson was going to release this documentary exposing all the child abuse in Hollywood and and traffickers and all that. That didn’t happen either. There’s a weird layover, you have to be very careful because some of these people are Grifters. That’s all I do know, right. You just got to be careful. Because we used to film this podcast we used to know donate hundreds of dollars to Operation Underground Railroad back in 2020. Because I was so tired of seeing other conspiracy people rant and rave and about how everything’s a witch hunt. All these people are abusing kids. And I thought we got let’s do something about us put some money down on it. So we started giving money to them. And then I heard a lot of things back in 2001 I heard things about Underground Railroad. So I stopped and I’m not at liberty to share those things. Let’s just say that I had heard some things and I thought I don’t know about this. And turns out your boy was right. Maybe I don’t know. And I don’t know what the answer is, you know, just it’s sad. It’s unfortunate you can’t just put some money at a cause and the right people are doing the right things doesn’t always happen. Oh also on shade 45 You know, I did many episodes with Ruth Jude on the all out show. And we had a long history we had a lot of back and forth. A lot of ups a lot of downs me and Jude sometimes we were best friends sometimes we were not friends at all. And we were trying to make something work over there on the show and it didn’t work out. And his show got canceled. I don’t know the details of it you know I have no hard feelings against dude even though the way our last my last appearance on there didn’t go well and I felt misunderstood. I did. I did reach out to him and said hey man, like if you need help launching something on your own, like I’d love to help out whatever right but no word back but he got cancelled. He had one of the most popular shows and all serious. It was on there for 20 years. And for apparently no reason they pulled the plug on it. I don’t know what the details are. There’s different Rumors you can obviously Google it but pretty wild. And it but it does make you wonder if all these people talking because because what was weird about Jude show is he would let me talk about literally anything. We started out talking about Balenciaga. That’s where we started. And I said, we had had phone call phone conversations before and after recording, and we’ve talked about strategy, and I was just like, Are you sure you want to cover all this? Because I know like, this is a pretty mainstream platform. And he’s like, Dude, it’s my show, man. I’m just gonna float that out there. And that’s the kind of thing that makes me wonder if all this stuff was like sound of freedom and And can’t you know, canceling Tim Ballard and all these people think, man. I just I hope I’m on the right side of things. I don’t know. I don’t know. But what’s my favorite pop culture moment? My favorite one of the year because it hits a little bit of many territories. It hits a little bit on conspiracy theory hits a little bit on pop culture hits a little bit on meme world hits a little bit on. They’ll say aliens you jet aliens. In the paranormal? Is that lady on the plane? Tiffany Gomez, who said that mother effer ain’t real, ma’am. Y’all know what I’m talking about? What was interesting is that the video released everyone was questioning that all the conspiracy people, myself included, said what did she see back there? Did she see a shape shifting person? She was terrified of this person she was sitting next to she made a big scene and then left the plane. Then you saw footage later on of police talking to her at the terminal there. And she was crying she would literally crying and she’s like, that plane can’t leave. Like those people are gonna die. Okay. And then obviously, the plane was okay. And she disappears. Well, actually, I think her name she was unidentified for many months, I think that she reappeared all of a sudden, say Hi, I’m Tiffany Gomez. I’m the lady. And a lot of people said that doesn’t quite look like her. But it kind of does. I don’t know. It’s hard to say. It could be could not be. And she did a sort of publicity tour. And in fact, when she first came to came out publicly, I reached out to her on a message as a hey, I’d love to hear your story. I’d love to share. I’d love to hear your experience and you know no word. But she did a bunch of big shows. That’s what’s weird about it, right? There’s a bunch of huge shows. And it was interesting, because this shows that I did hear she didn’t really clarify like she I don’t say she dodged the question. But she kind of played it off. Like it was like, it was just a weird moment. And I don’t I don’t buy it. I just don’t buy it. So there’s questions of whether or not this is really her. And if it’s not her, is it someone who looked close enough that was like, I’m gonna catch this one in like that seems believable. And we don’t have like she was on Alex Stein show on Blaze, blaze TV or whatever that’s on. And I listened to that podcast. On one of the interviews I heard she said that she was had something to do with a guy sitting next to her had these air pods or she dropped her air pods and wanted him to grab them or something. And he was being goofy. And that’s why she got up she says that mother effer isn’t real. And she she implied that it was sort of a slang thing. She wasn’t saying like, Oh, just shape shifting aliens. She was saying like, he’s not being real. And I don’t believe it. I just don’t. Why was she crying in the terminal? Why was she worried everyone was gonna die on the plane? I don’t know. And that’s why it’s my favorite pop culture moment. Because I feel like that one’s got some staying power. I feel like two three years from now. We might still be talking about this. Alright, moving on. You know, in the past, we talked about favorite music and I kind of crossed the threshold. I’ve crossed the what do you got the Rubicon here. I don’t stay current enough. I really don’t. So I’m gonna drop that one off the year wrap up list. I did listen to several albums I listened to. Ironically the Travis Scott Utopia album I liked I thought that was pretty good. What else did I listen to? The Nicki Minaj album Pink Friday to is pretty good. Lots of suicide boys albums dropped pretty good. It’s fine. I don’t I don’t say Kurt enough to have an opinion though. So that’s it for Favorite music. I’m 44 Come on, give me a break.
Best Movie again. I don’t say I don’t say current enough on every movie. This opinion should really matter to you. But if you’re curious what my favorite movie We have 23 that I watched in 23 I should say because you look I spent you know me I spent most of the year watching Twin Peaks. I started my Twin Peaks journey this year the border there was a walk. I I ran through my letterbox history among letterbox. I don’t know if you’re on there. You should follow me on there. Let me find my profile. I think it’s Isaac wise up. Let’s take a look. Let’s take a look. Yeah, Isaac Weishaupt. You can see my top four favorite movies of all time my recent activity as of this recording, you’ll see I just watched the I watched for Blanca then I watched the 2003 or whatever your was the Johnny Depp, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Hated it hated Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I hated the first time when I saw in the theaters. And I really enjoyed that story. I want I read the book as a kid and I watched the new Wonka the twink Walker they call it I was asked to watch that Johnny Depp one one more time. Maybe I maybe I wasn’t ready for it. Now. It’s terrible. His voice it’s his voice. They should have just made them do Captain Jack Sparrow voice and the MSR with the gloves. Hate it. It’s the worst. I’ll never watch it again. Okay. And I’ll cover worst movies of 23 Let’s talk best though. Start out positive. I saw a lot of movies this year that were good. I thought I liked the Barbie movie. Yeah, fun movie a little disappointing. I was a little disappointed with it. I wouldn’t say it was one of the worst. I’ve watched a documentary on Netflix about Arnold Schwarzenegger. I thought that was great. It actually motivated me to finally watch the Conan the Barbarian movies. I’d never seen them if you can believe that. And I absolutely loved them. Loved Conan the Barbarian. His best movie? I’m gonna say it Arnold’s best movie. Conan the Barbarian. Prove me wrong. Even Conan the Destroyer was great. Red Sonia was okay. The remake was trash. The Jason Momoa remake, which should have worked I think on paper. It should have worked but it wasn’t bad. But that 80s Conan the Barbarian bring that on all day long. Avatar to I watched this year, I think it was this year, January. I enjoyed it. It was great. I watched John Wick one through three. I haven’t even seen four yet. But I’ve watched that for the first time. Those were great, great movies. I also saw boxing Halina for the first time it’s a night early 90s movie with Sherilyn Fenn from Twin Peaks. Loved it. Great movie was directed by Jennifer Lynch, David’s daughter, if you can find a copy of that. I enjoyed it thoroughly. But the winner, my favorite movie that I watched in 2023, not from the year 2023. But from for your boy to watch. Easily hands down without a question. firewalk with me? Yeah, that’s right. And if you’re in the Twin Peaks, gray lodge with me, you’ll know it goes season one, season two, then we’re doing fire walk with me. And I’m very excited to get to that because that was the moment where I first thought okay, there’s something going on with twin peaks here. Because if you remember, I started watching it. It might have been December 22. But I couldn’t. I couldn’t find definitive evidence but I didn’t finish Season Two until I think February. And then I watched fire walking me in March and that’s when I said okay, well what’s going on here? Firewalker B is the greatest i i watched it I bet 10 times this year. I we are going to talk about this but we mean Josie flew up to snow Kwame where they filmed Twin Peaks. I watched it on the plane right up exactly. And I’m not exaggerating exactly the same amount of time it took to fly from Salt Lake to Seattle was the full movie. You know what I’m saying? It’s meant to be. Then we watched it there at Snow Kwame at the Great Northern the Salish Lodge, which I loved very much. Definitely going back someday, we watched that and it was beautiful. We had the we had the door open. It was all moody his house October is all moody and foggy. We had the fireplace going we were watching fire walk with me. Oh my god. It’s the stuff dreams are made of. And then we went and visited Mary River at the Laura Palmer home. We’ll talk about that again. And then flight home I watched it a third time. Obsessed. absolutely obsessed. Alright, moving on to the worst movies of 23. This is the year for mid films. There are so many made films out there, but some standard as absolute trash, you might not like this. You might not like this nefarious tick tock convinced me this is the most terrifying movie ever made. It was wasn’t terrifying. It was terrible. absolute trash. Megan about the robot thing started out pretty strong and had lots of rave reviews and I thought, well, maybe this is pretty good. By the end of it, I was like this is the most overhyped film of all time. This is trash. Right in the trash bin and belongs. movie called hostage with the to the devil. Trash, absolute trash. And the winner of the worst movie, those weren’t the worst to me. To me the worst movie of the year, at least the ones I saw. White Noise. That’s right, white noise. We did a show about it. And it was on the top 10 We did a show with Nick Hinton about the movie white noise. I tried to watch it. So painful. It reminded me of Wes Anderson movies. I absolutely hate Wes Anderson movies. You could miss me with that BS all day long. White Noise might be my most hated film of all time. And it’s not really fair because I didn’t finish it. I was maybe 45 minutes in and I was like, I can’t do this. I literally can’t do it. So there you go. There’s the movie. Break down. Celebrity deaths. There’s a lot of celebrities that died. Lots of them. Let’s go down through the list. KENNETH anger we did a whole show on this guy. This was a very prominent occultist. He filmed like the first gay film ever. He is an architect of putting occult symbolism into artwork into film. You don’t get David Lynch without Kenneth anger. I’m sorry. You just don’t. You just don’t You don’t have to like him. He’s connected with Croley and Parsons and Marjorie Cameron and all these folks we talked about it on the show. But you know, these influences are influences. Matthew Perry died from friends. We did two episodes on that already. Tina Turner died. We talked about her called connections on the show. Man What was it? I don’t even remember. Bad host that host didn’t look it up. I should look it up. Let’s see Tina Turner and fun fact our dog Tina is named after Tina Turner because she’s got these little white booty feet little boots.

Isaac Weishaupt 27:37
What did we talk about her on the show? Oh, it’s actually pretty interesting stuff. Where was the doll? I’m trying to get to the occult thing about Buddhism which I’m actually reading a book about right now. She illuminate confirm just because she’s into Buddhism doesn’t make her illuminate confirm maybe it maybe what maybe she wasn’t illuminate confirm. All right. You’d have to listen to the whole show. Sorry. That nothing stands out. Maybe not. i She did say something though. Anyway, moving on. Lisa Marie Presley. Elvis his daughter died right after the Elvis movie was released which is really odd, isn’t it? She died at age 54. Complications or something from a bariatric surgery. Crazy. The timing is bizarre right? Wrestlers back you know we love wrestling here bad year for wrestlers. Shock caster Costa out there. He told me he was a wrestler. Anyway. The Jay Briscoe who was on the Briscoe brothers on Ring of Honor wrestling I was watching out for a few years tragically died in a car crash. He was only 38 years old. A car crossed the middle of the road and they hit head on these dead Iron Sheik legend in WWF. I grew up what I’ve I’ve photos of Iron Sheik and Nikolai Volkoff. At Allentown pa the wrestling match my parents took me to for WWF back in the early 80s. He was an actual guard in Iran for the Shah is a whole documentary. I think I watched it this year last year, but the Iron Sheik is pretty good. Darren Drozdov actually didn’t watch him wrestle ever. I just knew who he was from a bunch of documentaries. He had a I think they call them puke because he had a condition where he would puke all the time. And it’s where you get that meme that Vince McMahon video clip. He just got up out he’s gone up. Yeah, that’s that’s from Darren drop. went by drawers to I think but he had a neck injury from wrestling and he was a quadriplegic, very tragic story of drawers. Then. Then we got Terry Funk. Again I grew up with Terry Funk is one of the hardcore. He was one of the every match he’d be bloody every match. One of the original hardcore wrestlers. He was in Roadhouse with Patrick Swayze. But man, bad year for wrestling that year for Christians, pat robertson died. Not a fan. But, but more importantly Dr. Michael Heizer, who I am a fan of a Christian who wrote about a variety of like the Neff Aleem and the spiritual battles and kind of conspiracy related content. I followed him early on in my little journey, because he would talk about ancient alien stuff and you know, debunk some things or whatever. He he passed away. And sort of Tom Horne, he did a ton of Christian conspiracy stuff. I think the one I had read from him was Apollyon rising 2012 I think we talked about that with the occult ritual of the resurrection of Osiris ritual and DC at the House of the Temple that they do every for every president. Yeah, those those those, those figures Oh, Richard Belzer died. He also was kind of conspiracy he wrote, well, not kind of he wrote several conspiracy books. Richard Belzer did Pee Wee Herman You know, Paul Reubens? He’s a legend. I grew up obsessed with Pee Wee Herman Loved it, loved the Pee Wee’s Playhouse show loved Pee Wee’s Big Adventure. I seen it a million times. loved him and blow the movie with Johnny Depp. Now, unfortunately, there’s this dark side. I don’t know what the truth is. Allegedly, he was in possession of some, you know, child stuff. And the defense I’ve heard from that is that it was actually art from the 20s or something so I don’t know. I don’t know what it was going on that side of the house. But as far as an actor man I love dressed up as peewee when I was a little kid for Halloween. So he died and that’s very sad. It’s tragic. Henry Kissinger died. He’s basically he’s a luminary. He’s basically the Illuminati itself. He’s from Bavaria to just like Adam vise hop, have no relation to me. Suzanne Somers died. Jimmy Buffett, Bob Barker. I met Bob Barker. He died sad when Friedkin let me clarify if you haven’t heard the story, me and Josie and her family went to be on the prices right in 2003. And I had a copy of Happy Gilmore. And during one of the commercial breaks, I random got a signature to kind of I was wearing my Air Force blues because I was trying to get on the show. So I went to Bob to be like, hey, there’s an Air Force guy get them on because he was in the Air Force. When frickin the director of The Exorcist died strangely again at the release of the new exorcist movie, which it’s okay, I think the sequel is going to be better if they do one Friedkin I didn’t know this but the exorcist the first original one. The 50th anniversary was December 26, meaning it was released at Christmas. When it came out. I had no idea that’s very dark. That’s really evil. I don’t know what I assumed it had been released in October back in 73.
Unknown Speaker 33:38
That apparently not
Isaac Weishaupt 33:41
sinead o’connor died. Remember, she was one of the early whistleblowers talking about the Catholic Church and they condemned her back in the day. You know, these people that come out and speak the truth they get smacked around a bunch. Ken Block I think he was the Red Bull guy. Something like that. The Unabomber Ted Kaczynski. I read the manifesto once and it was I’m not opposed to his ideas. I thought they were pretty good ideas. I obviously don’t condone the violence. So the violent side but he was a MK Ultra participant so who knows what happened there? Some wires got crossed. Tony Bennett died Jerry Springer died and then you know last but not least, we’ve got some Twin Peaks losses we’ve got Robert Blake who was in Lost Highway he died. Tom Sizemore who was in season three the return died. And Piper Laurie Catherine Martel Hall of Famer character from the Twin Peaks universe. She also died this year. Very sad. And what what’s interesting is that Angelo bald Amenti who was the composer did the music for Twin Peaks, which as you know, if you listen to my Twin Peaks primer show, the music is the key to the show, I think, and he died at the end of December of 22. And that was right around the time that I started watching Twin Peaks.
Unknown Speaker 35:04
which I found very odd. Okay.
Isaac Weishaupt 35:08
Let’s see. personal memories time let’s go down personal memories time. I got a favorite. Okay, I got some other weird ones. But some of my favorites Enrique talk. I was on Tik Tok and Enrique Yglesias as concerts. Sounds pretty bad. But it’s very entertaining, and I couldn’t get off the loop. I enjoyed it very thoroughly. So the Enrique talk was one of my favorite things this year, put a smile on my face. I went golfing I started watching sports ball, right and watching the because, you know, the, and the reason why is because being a man, my male friends, they all talk football, they’ll talk sports, but football, for sure. I think I’m just gonna start watching football again. And I enjoy it. I like it. My teams. So here’s the thing. Growing up, you’re probably saying well, who’s your team Isaac? Growing up, my dad and I were huge Oakland Raiders fans. So I am Raider Nation but, and my dad didn’t like the Philadelphia Eagles even though that’s where we grew up. So part of me like I enjoy watching the and the Eagles. They’ve got a really I like their team this year. They’re doing really good. They play a lot. They play aggressively. They do a lot of cool trick plays and stuff. So those are my two teams, right? The Raiders and the Eagles. If your brother go you bid whack job. Whoo. Well, I don’t care enough, right. It’s fine. It doesn’t take over my life yet. But those are my teams. I’m watching the Raiders. And the Eagles so and Mario out there. Sorry, Mario or Mario. He told me Mario, Mario, Mario, Mario. We’re right or Nate. We’re right Raider Nation. Okay. They’re not they’re not they’re not doing too hot this year. But my eagles are so there we go. So that’s right, your That’s right. Isaac’s watching sports ball. I traded in music for sports. Man, a bunch of crazy stuff. Let’s see. Oh, then here’s another weird one. I was talking with somebody about Gnosticism they were asking me about it. And I was explained to them what the Pleroma was about how there’s this realm where they think the real God lives out in the divine called the Pleroma. And you know, a word you never use. I use it on this show sometimes. In my real life, never. Who knows asking me these things. So someone had asked me that. And I’m not exaggerating. I’m not even exaggerating. I leave that location. And I drive an eighth of a mile not even an eighth of a mile 10 seconds. And in front of me is a car and their license plate is a personalized plate. This says Pleroma
Unknown Speaker 38:15
Isn’t that odd?
Isaac Weishaupt 38:18
And it just made me think about you know, the Gnostic idea that the world is a simulation. I don’t know what to make of that. It was really odd. But my favorite My favorite moment of the year, I favorite memory of the year. You already know where we’re going. Twin Peaks from watching season one to Firewalker may Season Three to going all the way up to Snoqualmie to see where they shot all these iconic scenes and then the icing on the cake going to me with Mary Rieber and going inside the Laura Palmer home to interview Mary Rieber inside the home I don’t even know how to express it in words. I can’t I want to go back I want to go back now. I think they’re doing something at the end of February. I’m not gonna be able to make it for that. But the next one I will the next event I’m I should have my book done by that I hope I think we’re hoping to have it done by fall of 24 I don’t know we’ll see. Anyway, yeah, Twin Peaks Washington loved it. Alright, what else do we got? Oh, least favorite memory. If you remember the beginning so last October in Halloween I woke up with COVID and I got a chronic sinusitis it wouldn’t go away for months pain in the ass finally got rid of it. And I’ve been healthy for a long time and then I woke up on my birthday this year. Right before Thanksgiving with COVID Again, I think you gotta be kidding me. Of course this time was a breeze you know? But still, it’s like a bummer, dude. We’re going on your birthday would COVID Alright 2022 Okay, let’s talk big moves. And then we’re gonna talk about guests and interviews and countdown and predictions. Let’s go. Big moves. I got dissed by Kelly Slater, the world famous surfer on Instagram. Cedric Bixler Disney and blocked me. He told me to try harder. He’s the lead singer of some band. I don’t even remember the name of it. The hell’s the name of the verb? No, Mars Volta. That’s it. I don’t listen to rocks that much, though. So that’s always fun. If I have a celebrity interaction, it’s automatically going on the big moves calendar automatically. Automatically. We cleared 14 point 6 million downloads this year. Last year, we clear 10 million. So that means we hit almost 5 million this year. That’s impressive. That’s you guys. Thank you. I got my 14th appearance on tinfoil hat a couple of weeks ago, I got to finally link up with house and habit and Kanye is post. Shout out to Jessica and Emily. I saw bird frozen in the sky. I think we talked about this. It was very odd. I don’t even know how to That’s it. I saw it frozen in the sky. I’m not seeing things. That’s what I saw. Let’s see where I started the apple premium feed. Right? Started Apple premium feed and turned my rockfon into a free feed not a popular, not a popular choice. Okay, I know a lot of wrong from people got really mad about it, I get it. I don’t want you to be mad at me. All right. Leave a comment on the rockfon video, and I’ll find it and I’m gonna shoot you an email address. I need you to write me. Send me an email. Okay. I want to make it right. I’m not trying to make people mad. I just it’s not working out for me over there. So leave a comment if you’re on there. And you’re you’re not thrilled about that. See if I can help you out. We had some great sponsors on the show. This year, we had factor HelloFresh BetterHelp. And my man James a coffee, my crypto thank you all great products, great sponsors. I use all of them. So they’re great. Gray Lodge was the big thing for me, right? We started the Twin Peaks gray Lodge. Again, not everyone loved it not received with open arms. But hey, you know what? I try to I’m an artist in a way and I got to do what? What drives me towards doing things. And that’s twin big, so. But it’s not going to be going on forever. We’ll get it done, we’re gonna get the great lot done and 24 We’re gonna be through all of it. I think we’re almost halfway through season two, we’re not halfway, we’re moving into season two. We’ll get there. I started up a sub stack, which I’m going to do you know, maybe one article a month or two, until I get my book done. So 24 We’re going to keep that at an idle 25. I’m going to almost start ripping out sub stack articles. I had several people sign up to pay for what do you call it? You can pay a premium on substack to you know, support the writer and I have that turned off because I don’t want it. That’s one more thing I can’t handle but I man it’s nice. You guys are already committing money into it. That’s dope, thank you. But I’m not going to actually open that up till 25 I was allowed back onto my other YouTube channel. Not the first one that they banned me on was 73,000 subs, but a different one. I started at occult symbolism as 18,000 subs. They let me back in there. So I’m uploading there again. what else what else? What else? What else? The big moves. I finished Twin Peaks three times. I’m working on my fourth what else? Oh, and then my favorite one. My favorite moment. My favorite big move. Excuse me. My favorite big move was landing coast to coast. My man Richard Syrett had me on his show. Then he had me on coast to coast as a bucket list item back in March. I mean, what’s left? What’s left? I got Joe Rogan and I’m sure he has quite the queue of people who want to get on there. But yeah, that’s that’s top of the bucket list right there man so Whoo. Thank you everyone who helped make that happen. I know people are like well what you made happen not just listen, now you’re helping out right? You listen to the show you support the show. You share episodes with friends. All those things helped me so thank you. We a lot of great guests in the year 23 We had donor talking office space Natalie’s family we had Nick Hinton talking about the Ohio train deal with white noise per Back to programming. We had my man mystic mark on to talk about yells column bones. We had filmmaker Darcy Weir and legendary ancient alien personality like Barra. Like Barra, I think I got it wrong originally to, to talk disclosure and NASA. That was a great show. We had Jay Dyer back on. We had, what’s that might be? I think he’s been on more than anyone else four times I don’t even know. Five times. We had John Brison. On to talk about sound of freedom. We had donut back on with Juana Yala from one on one. That was kind of an interview to like, we kind of did swap cast. Then of course, we had Mary river where we interviewed her in the Laura Palmer home, which is her home, aka Mary River, aka our stream on from the Twin Peaks storyline. And then we’ll wrap it up the year with Dr. Diana pusaka. So, I mean, these are those are some legendary guests for the year 23. Thank you, everybody, for joining us on this humble little shelf. And I do plan on doing a Dr. datapath sock is in encounters book review where we go through some of the main ideas so if you bought the book and you read now we’re going to come back to it I just got to get it going. Then, man and I was on a ton of shows this year I tried to really add up a bunch to add a bunch to the repertoire I had Richard Serra, I think twice we did a did Richard Serra show, reality’s ours podcast, Mark, Claire, and some of these guys are coming back. We’re going to do Twin Peaks shows I’m going to have him back on. We’re going to talk Twin Peaks exclusively with people like Mark Claire Bledsoe said, so I think I was this first repeat guest I need to link back up with those guys. Daddy Polish Chuck’s low value male that was my first time working with him. He’s a funny guy. I think he got banned off a YouTube or something after I did that. I don’t remember. I don’t know if I’ve had anything to do with me or not, I don’t know. linked up with Tony from the confessionals. That was a big deal that that should have been up on the big moves calendar actually. Great, dude. We’re both from the same area of PA there. So yeah, that was dope. You should check that out for sure on the confessionals. Huge paranormal show, massive show. In fact, in fact, I was doing a little cyber stalking and Mark frost, who’s part of the creative force behind Twin Peaks right him and David Lynch are the creative minds behind it. Mark frost follows Tony Merkel on the confessionals. And I said, Oh, we should do something. Come on. Let’s go. So we’ll see. Mary wild. I got to link up with her she’s she does the evolution of horror podcast. Sometimes she has her own shows. We did Eyes Wide Shut. That was a good one. Really happy I could meet up with her. I did quite frankly, the quite frankly show in August. That’s another huge show. bloodletters Makayla and Elle thank you so much. They sent me a really nice you’ll happy you’ll card.
We are going to come back on to talk Twin Peaks two did the other side of me know with Frank Murano? I did I just did Jamie HANSOL show on YouTube. Check that out. We talked about Beyonce and the goddess did tinfoil hat three times did Wizard of Oz and march we talked about then. Me and J Dyer. Were on there for an N times discussion in October. And then just last week, we did leave the world behind on Netflix. So three, three shows this year. Like I said, I linked up with house and habit I did Eyes Wide Shut on her massive, massive feed on substack. And as she’s doing lots of cool presidential race coverage on her Instagram, so check her out. And then you know of course Coast to Coast AM which is nothing to sneeze at. That was a big deal. So yeah, lots of interviews this year. Right. And I I know people have been reaching out to me, they want me to do their show. I’m on the fence about doing as many this year because I gotta get this this Twin Peaks thing down, man, and it’s just taking me longer than I want it to. So I might hold off on doing shows for a few months. I don’t know. We’ll see. All right. Oh, most draw most dramatic show of the year. Does that sound of freedom episode? People. People definitely had some feelings about it. And I get it right. I got it. We already talked about it. So we don’t need to go back in there. But that was the most dramatic show of the year. John Brison did good jobs, man. A tough guy, right? Try Stand up for the truth, right? Someone’s got to do it. Alright. favorite, favorite episode of the year for me is the most interesting. It was the most fun. It’s the exploration of Twin Peaks gray lodge series. Of course, you know what it is, you know the deal. I know it’s not one episode. I know it’s a series but easily my favorite. If you forced me to pick one, I would say the Wizard of Oz show. I really enjoyed that because I liked the movie. Like the topic. Some good runners up Idiocracy. The film analysis was great. I enjoy that movie. The Hoover Dam shows those were really interesting to me. I didn’t think that was gonna go anywhere. But that did. And we did a Microsoft’s AI chatbot and I gave you the Stephen Hawking voice. And that was fun. That was a funny one. My least favorite episode to do the year Ironically, it was also the Hoover Dam. It was part three because I had to buy this big expensive book and read this thing. And it was painful to read. I did not like it. But everything else was good at all. interesting subjects. Alright, let’s get into the top episodes. And then we’re doing predictions and we’re done. Spotify and rap. They said that my top listened to episode for the year was the Grammys 2023 symbolism remember Sam Smith came out as the devil said it was streamed and 999% more than an average episode. That’s 1,000% more. That’s pretty crazy. Said most new listeners were from from countries right? Number one was Nigeria. And number two was Greece. I thought that was pretty cool. Cuz you know, my wife’s Greek. And I am Greek Orthodox. And it said that I am a the top listen to podcasts for 16 183 listeners. So shout out to those 1600 83 people, I appreciate that. And then it’s a top 10 podcast for over 15,000 people. So that’s dope. Now, let’s talk about this. Top episodes count down the top 10 downloaded shows which I would consider as the most popular shows right? And I might not do this segment anymore. This might be the last year because actually don’t know how accurate this really is. I need to get better analytics going on. Because the analytics I’m using for the top 10 For every year have done this. I noticed that it’s always shows from January or February. And it makes me wonder if that’s just because they’ve been on there long longer than the rest right? It’s good news, bad news. Right? The good news is my shows are getting listened to well after they’re being published. The bad news is I’m not getting most of those listens in the first 30 days. But for for the sake of continuity we’ll just do it again this year. You remember in 22 the top listen to show was the Will Smith versus Chris Rock’s lap from March. racking up almost 48,000 listens at the time. The fact we should we should see where that’s at now. Aren’t we curious? And this is what and you know, March is still our kids it was that nine months? Nine months to to rack up listens? Yes, it’s at 53,000 listens right now. That’s almost 6000 spins in, you know, the year anyway. I just don’t know how how much value added these countdowns are now. That’s my concern. Number 10. The Ezra Miller Show with 30,630 not going to Okay, number nine, the 2022 Wrap Up Show ironically from last year. Virgin on January 2 30,000. Wizard of Oz part 330 1000. The Microsoft Bing shell came in at number seven with 31 Now that avatar two came out with 31,000 But like I said these are all like January February March shows every single one of them and I find that hard to believe that they were the most popular right after our three drops and 25 By the way, I looked that up. Where are we at? 10 Nine it’s number five Wait,
Speaker 1 54:43
wait 123 I
Isaac Weishaupt 54:48
did my counting wrong. Okay, sorry. This one is number seven. I promise you Wizard of Oz number part one came in at 32,000. Number six is the Rihanna Super Bowl. 34,000 number five. Number five is Wizard of Oz part two where we actually did the film analysis of obviously more popular 36,000 number for my man Nick Hinton coming through in the clutch 36,000 listens on the Ohio train symbolism. Number three, the office symbolism with donut pulling, pulling out 36,000 listens as well. Number two was a TMZ show which we don’t do as much anymore. I’ll probably do one or two of those this year though, coming up. Over 36,000 It was the one about Andrew Tate, the Idaho murders, Simpsons bless Yaga all kinds of stuff. And then number one, as you already probably know, from the Spotify wrapped is the Grammys 2023 symbolism with Sam Smith, Satanism with almost 37,000 spins. So thank you for listening. CBS was tweeting about how they’re ready to worship on Twitter after that, that Grammys if you recall. All right. Now let’s wrap it up. We gotta go predictions. First, we’re going to recap 2020 two’s Wrap Up Show predictions. Alright, let’s revisit it. I I said I think Dane Cook is going to be canceled in 23. The verdict? Not quite. Not quite. In fact, he’s kind of doing the opposite. He’s kind of making the rounds at the comedy clubs again, and he’s active on Tik Tok. And I’ve seen him do a couple of interviews on podcasts. But what’s interesting, he got married in September of 23. Right? Which was interesting. He’s 51 She’s 24 They started dating when she was 18. And if you recall, there’s, if you recall the reason why I even predicted such a thing, because there was always Isaac Caffee conspiracies about Dane Cook. There’s photos of Dane Cook and Seth Green and Isaac Cappy hanging out at what they called game night. Where Cappy I think was saying a lot of the shady business was going down. And the claim is that Dane Cook green and Capri they were doing these having all these young girls over for game night. And that’s where Dane Cook actually met his now wife Kelsey Taylor. Newsweek posted some theories and discussion about all this and someone dug through all of Dane Cook social media posts and saw that he tagged Kelsey when she was 17. Barely though. That’s a month is when she turned 18. And then there was another image of Dane Cook next to this actress Emily Lind who was 14 at the time. Now is there anything illegal going on there? Apparently not. I mean, didn’t good way to she was a dean apparently, but boy, I don’t like the looks of it. Especially given what Isaac Cappy was saying. I had my doubts about Isaac Cappy. But I don’t know man maybe. I think there’s some element of truth there. I don’t think Isaac Cappy was like a total fraud or nothing like that. Don’t get me wrong. Anyway, my whole thing is like these people that are plugged into this and who are dropping allegations I’m like, gotta get the proof man get some video or something. Like why did they do this? That’s the same criticism I have of Kanye West. He wants to say that. You know, this person and that person roll the world and we’re scrolling with me. And the only thing that he did provide evidence of was the Harley Pasternak text. That was good. Right? That was good. I also predicted last year that sort of Deadpool section if you get my drift. I thought Dojo cat and Kanye West weren’t looking good. We’re looking good. Now though to catch he did a little bit of a death and rebirth ritual come back and Scarlett so I mean, that was kind of true. She kind of died and was reborn. And you know, Kanye West. Yay. He’s he’s still kicking. He’s still ran but he’s now apologizing. So that appears he’s gonna make it through. All right, that’s good. We, you know, we need to keep you a round. Finally, my last prediction was revelation of the method. And that’s a little subjective, a little fuzzy. But I think that happened I think we got Netflix’s leave the world behind was showing us all these things that then came out true with the giant Chinese hackers. The Zuckerberg building his doomsday bunker in Hawaii all those things they were showing us that we started out the year with Rihanna sneaking in the rock diamond on TV, but then he would let it on TV with a lead on YouTube which was really weird. Egypt when let Travis Scott perform of the pyramids is huge to do when they were going to do a utopia performance at the pyramids. Egypt shut it down. revelation of the method, they need you to start thinking about the spiritual battle. And we’re seeing it sort of happen in real time in front of us. Finally, Oh, finally predictions for 23. So, put a bow on it. 22 What did I get right there? None of it really. I mean, you could you could argue, but I’m not going to. I’m gonna say, you know, 1.3 out of three. For 23 Diddy, I think is not going to have a good 2023. I mean, that doesn’t take much of a genius to see. But he’s got a lot of people looking at him right now. A lot of people accusing him right now. And, you know, my personal opinion. I mean, I kind of believe it. Right? Of course, you shouldn’t believe every single allegation about every person. But the man This one feels like it’s true. It really does. So I think he’s, things aren’t going to end well for him. I don’t know what that looks like, specifically. But it ain’t good. Another prediction, the Epstein list of CO conspirators is supposed to drop on January 1. I’m telling you right now, that ain’t happening. That ain’t happening. If it does, they’re going to redact connected names. You’re not getting the full list. It ain’t happening. I don’t think it’s even gonna, like any names are dropping on January 1, to be honest. If anything, they’ve got a list on there of people they want to sort of cancel and they’re gonna be like, okay, release the list of those names. You know what I mean? Like, you’re gonna get half the names or something. We’ll see. January 1, isn’t that far away. So let’s see what happens. Taylor Swift and Kelsey, that ain’t gonna work out, you know, that ain’t gonna work out. We’re gonna see the breakup, Taylor is gonna have a million albums about it. Because my thing is like Travis Kelce is dating history doesn’t really line up to him like and Taylor Swift. I don’t think we’ll see. i There’s no way. Then finally, UFOs 2025 is supposed to be the or disclosure. So 23 and, or so 24 It’s got to heat up. And, you know, we’re not gonna get any real evidence, no proof that they’re gonna happen. So there you go. Big Year. Thanks for listening to the show this whole time. I couldn’t do without you. So keep that support going and 24 however, that looks for you, right. Staying subscribed on the free feed sharing episodes with friends. You guys are doing great on that. You know, signing up for Patreon if that’s your time. Well, thank you so much.
