PODCAST #003 – Hip-Hop – Artist Mentality – Personal Stories

Here’s a chill one!

Alex and Matty had a special guest – Peck that was suppose to join them on today’s podcast but he had to cancel at the last minute. So they simply talked about various topics starting by Hip-Hop and DR Dre’s new album and movie and the culture surrounding it. They end up discussing the artists mentality in general ranging from artists such as Bullock, Banksy, M.C. Escher and more. They discuss there own artistic talents and preference. They also talk about personal experiences and stories they have had during their past. Matty finishes off with a song he created called: Falling Hard.

    1. About the Senomix and HEK293 bit:

      http://www.snopes.com/politics/medical/pepsi.asp

      This investigation is actually super interesting.
      I read all of it.

      The conspiracy was launched by: Children of God for Life

      HEK293 originally comes from “Human Embryo Kidney” back in the 1970’s.
      Since then however, it’s been created artificially 100% of the time.

      It’s used for Vaccines and Pharmaceuticals.
      Not confirmed 100% that it’s used in Food.

      However, since it’s created synthetically, it has nothing to do with abortions or fetuses etc…

      So to conclude, Do they use aborted fetuses for food?
      The answer is no. It’s done synthetically.

      interesting.
      It’s science.

      1. Nice to see that you did your research 🙂 However you should not conclude that its not in our food… Cuz they are; You are right to say that the HEK293 are cloned. However Senomyx has been cought purchasing from Planned Parenthood raised many questions on what else they are doing.

        But I will cover a little bit on the food part.

        What are These Genetically Engineered ‘Flavor Enhancers,’ and are They Safe?

        According to a CBS News report from June 2011, 70 out of 77 Senomyx patents 9, 10 filed at that time referred to the use of HEK 293.11 These are human embryonic kidney cells originally harvested from a healthy, electively aborted fetus sometime in the 1970’s. The “HEK” identifies the cells as kidney cells, and the “293” denotes that the cells came from the 293rd experiment.

        These cells have been cloned for decades, as they offer a reliable way to produce new proteins using genetic engineering. Senomyx has engineered HEK293 cells to function like human taste receptor cells,12 presumably such as those used in Pepsi Co’s taste-testing robot. This was done by isolating taste receptors found in certain cells, and adding them to the HEK cells.

        HEK cells are also widely used within pharmaceutical and cell biology research for the same or similar reasons. It is however the first time HEK cells have been used in the food industry, which carries a certain “ick” factor for many. There’s also the issue of just not knowing how these new flavors are created. As stated in another CBS news report:13

        “So what exactly is this magic ingredient that will be appearing in a new version of Pepsi, and how is it made? Unfortunately, those questions are hard to answer. Senomyx… refers to them only as ‘enhancers’ or ‘ingredients’… The products work by triggering receptors on the tongue and tricking your taste buds into sensing sweetness — or saltiness or coolness, in the case of the company’s other programs…

        So are Senomyx’s covert ingredients safe? That, too, is anyone’s guess… many of its enhancers have ‘been granted’ GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status, but all that means is that the company did its own assessment and then concluded everything was fine. We don’t know whether Senomyx did any testing since the company isn’t required to submit anything to the FDA.14

        There’s no reason to think that Senomyx’s products will cause harm, but until or unless Pepsi decides to share details about how exactly it’s achieving a 60 percent reduction in sugar while keeping the taste the same, customers will be drinking their ‘scientifically advantaged’ sodas completely in the dark.”

        The lack of labeling requirements is particularly troublesome and will probably become an issue in the future. Since these compounds (whatever they are) are used in such minute quantities, they don’t have to be listed on the label. They’ll simply fall under the generic category of artificial and/or natural flavors. What this means is that the product will appear to be much “healthier” than it might otherwise be, were a flavor enhancer not used.

        According to a 2010 CBS report,15 Senomyx’s flavor enhancers were already being sold outside the US at that time. For example, Nestle was by 2010 using an MSG flavor enhancer in its Maggi brand soups, sauces, condiments and instant noodles, and Ajinomoto was also using a similar ingredient in products for the Chinese market. This means less of the artificial sweetener is needed to create the same sweet taste as before, but while one could argue that this is a good thing, I suspect we will ultimately learn that this flavor enhancement method has multiple unforeseen adverse consequences — metabolically, and biologically.

        Consequences of Food Alteration are More the Rule than the Exception…

        There are many reasons why you’re better off choosing natural whole foods in lieu of processed alternatives, but one of the primary ones is that junk foods contain additives that increase your toxic load, which in turn may increase your tendency to develop cancer. As of yet, there is NO medical research to back up the assertion that manipulating your taste buds in the way Senomyx’ products do is safe and healthy in the long term. As an example, I would point to the evidence now available showing that one of the reasons why artificial sweeteners do not work as advertised is because the taste of sweet itself is tied into your metabolic functioning in a way that we still do not fully understand… As a result, artificially sweetened products, oftentimes boasting zero calories, actually result in greater weight gain than sweetened products when used “in the real world.”

        It’s easy to forget that the processed, pre-packaged foods and fast food restaurants of today are actually a radical change in terms of the history of food production. Much of what we eat today bears very little resemblance of real food. Many products are loaded with non-nutritive fillers — purposely designed to just “take up space” to make you think you’re getting more than you really are — along with any number of additives. Many additives have been shown to have harmful effects on mood, behavior, metabolic functioning and biochemistry.

        Now, with the introduction of untested engineered flavor enhancers, you’re left wondering whether processed foods with “cleaner” labels really are safer and healthier or not… Remember, because Senomyx’ flavor enhancers are used in such low concentrations they are not required to undergo the FDA’s usual safety approval process for food additives.

        The disease trends we’re now seeing are only going to get worse as much of the processed foods consumed today are not even food-based. Who knows what kind of genetic mutations and malfunctions we’re creating for ourselves and future generations when a MAJORITY of our diet consists of highly processed and artificial foods that contain substances never before consumed by humans in all of history.

        1. Quite possibly one of the longest comments of all time.

          Yes indeed, lots of chemicals in our foods!

          Lots of secrets. Food and agriculture departments better do their work!

  1. Petit détail technique. Sur iTunes, ce podcast est daté de 2000 et se retrouve donc tout à fait en bas de la liste des podcasts actifs (la mienne du moins). C’est possible de corriger la date?
