Alicia Unleashed- The Mini Viva

Episode 105-The Mini Viva!!!

Weeeee’re baaaaaack! Did you miss us?!

FIESTA CAST 6 BABYYYYYYY!

We got Alicia, BSide and of course our resident Fiesta Mayor/Queen Samantha Barrett! Even Emmet stops by to give us some impressive VIIIIIIIIVAS! Props to Samo and ‘The Crazy Hat Ladies’ for our epic intro!

Probably our shortest episode ever and shortest Fiesta Cast…It’s not MINI VIVA FER NUFIN?!

We chat about live music being back (we see you Neon90s),

Can we also talk about how Sam refuses to have a gap in “Pin Life” and made her own again this year?!

The Island Cowboy is back in the saddle and Runaround Sound got the band together to give us 3rd of July feels on the Boulevard!

Shoutout to @glostagear for the amazing shirt also featured on our cover!

Be safe this weekend and be kind to hospitality, like Sam says “Don’t be a gahgutzah”

See you soon Mom’s Kitchen!

Back Stage at the Superbowl

Imagine being in college on 2007 and being asked to volunteer for an event helping build a stage.

Now fast forward to 14 years later and that first event you volunteered for has been listed as one of the “Greatest Super Bowl Halftime Performances of All Time” and you were part of it and witnessed it from backstage.

That is only the beginning of the story of our guest this week Lamarr Rollins! BSide and Lamarr have known each other for 10 years this month and she has been trying for 4 years to get him to come on the show, IT FINALLY HAPPENED!

Come take a journey with Bside and Lamarr on what it is like to be part of the Super Bowl halftime show, how to juggle a full time architect job and how to pull off a Halftime show in a Pandemic. Also Lamarr asks some of B’s burning questions she’s had over the years and expresses her loathing for Maroon 5.

Stick through some the rants as Lamarr drops behind the scene knowledge on us as well as talking about the family he’s come to know volunteering every year and how they are doing in the Pandemic era.

Alicia Unleashed- Thanksgivingsode

Shoutouts to Downtown shops:
VIP Fitness-Enza Groppo
Stones Pub (come back soon).

Bossman Joey got new studio lighting! And using Fiverr…Where you at John Jerome with ours? Do we need to call Neon 90s or Chris Grice? Don’t worry B doesn’t have blackmail, but she does know roommates of some of you! Shoutout to Parsons of Neon90s for our disclaimer on our last episode!

We talk about our Thanksgiving Tshirts (thanks HippieRunner). Also shoutout to Saturday Morning Pancakes. Talk about our Thursday Plans and what may or may not happen?

Bside gave approval for Xmas to be celebrated and decorated early! Peter on the other hand said no! However Alicia started listening to Music on November 1st, Even B got a few songs in.

Alicia Unleashed -The Return of the Mo’ bros

Episode 102!

Listener Discretion is advised for this one. We said it in our opener but we must repeat, the Cast of Alicia Unleashed and our Guests are NOT medical/psychological professionals.

 

IT’S OUR ANNUAL VISIT WITH THE MO’BROS, Ben Cannon, Geoff Turke and Tom Leard!

 

We catch up with the guys and talk about what has happened in the last year since we left Tom’s dining room table! 3 Weddings, Baptisms, New Jobs, 18 month olds, 17 month olds and of course we talk about Zooming!

Just like the past 2 years sitting down with the ‘Bros, we discuss Men’s Health and the Movember Movement. This year being the year it is, the ‘Bros and the Movember Movement have focused more on Awareness and Mental Health Awareness and we get iiiiiiiiiiiin to it!

We discuss what it is like to be part of a movement that is about Awareness of Prostate & Testicular Cancers and Male Depression as it is raising funds for programs to assist with awareness in a PANDEMIC! (unsure if you guys knew we were in one).

In true Alicia Unleashed fashion, WE TALK ABOUT BALLS (and self exploration…probably the best moment in 102 episodes)!

If there is anything you do this week, give it a listen or give the website a look (or give this episode a like or a share).

Here are some resources that were discussed in this episode. If you or someone you know are struggling, please reach out to one of these numbers or sites. There is no shame in asking for help, these guys will attest to this. Also give these guys a dollar or two (if you can).

How long will he last?

I have always been a fan of Cam Newton since he entered the scene.

According to a news article earlier this morning, Cam Newton said: “Don’t believe the hype,” while walking on a treadmill. “You know what I’m saying? I never once — and I say this right now — I never once wanted to leave Carolina.”

Question begs, do you think he will last the entire season? Do you think he will stay or go once his year is up?

Let’s not forget in October 2017 when he was raked over the coals for being sexist.

How many people have the Pats signed just to see them go after a game or before the season has begun?

 

 

 

The half St. Peter- 2020 Fiesta Cast

 

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR!
The Half St. Peter..aka 2020’s Fiestacast

Or aka “BSide will edit the shit out of this”

There may not be an altar at Fort square, no seine boats or Dory races in the Harbor, no zazitzas in front of the club. BUT ALICIA UNLEASHED WILL STILL HAVE OUR FIESTA CAST…SCREW YOU COVID.

Happy 16th birthday to Tyler D! Alicia discusses him coming in to the world in basically preventing his father from walking the pole. BSide discusses (maybe for far too long about her mother going through process for a Double Lung Transplant)..it ties in to Fiesta.

AND SAM BARRETT IS BACK. Also Bside’s neighbor Nikkita silently joins in.

Join us for this wild podcast ride (it’s not like you have plans)…VIIIIIIII….oh wait…

See if you can spot BSide’s editing magic.

Letters from Home

 

Imagine your Nana/Nona/Grammy not being able to visit your Grampy/Nunu/Papa at the Nursing Residence they call home or vice versa.

Imagine their daily routine, the love of their life not being able to check in with them, hold hands and have that connection they’ve had for so many years.

It’s a lonely time for so many us, but for our seniors that can’t get visitors it’s heartbreaking for them, their families and the staff.

If you have a greeting card sitting around or construction paper, consider sending a card to a senior that may need it more that you know.

We spoke with the staff of Den-Mar Health and Rehabilitation Center and cards will sit in a quarantine for a day or so but then will be distributed to the residents.

Cards can be sent to:
Den-Mar Health
44 south Street
Rockport, MA 01966
