Jason Silva Pleads with Ex Girlfriend (‘Shots of Awe’ Parody)

Jason’s ex has been playing brain games with his broken heart.

I first heard about Jason Silva on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast and enjoyed the exploration of topics from an optimistic futurist perspective. He is the host of Brain Games on the National Geographic Channel, and he makes thought stimulating videos called Shots of Awe. They are heavily philosophical but not beyond grasp, and I have posted what I think is his most popular video below.

If Joe Rogan was a Hot Chick

Somewhere in the multiverse exists a hot chick Joe Rogan. Special thanks to DMT Apparel! Check out DMTapparel.com for cool shirts like the one featured in this video!

I am a big fan of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast and the whole Deathsquad crew. He is a wonderfully inspiring human being, a funny stand up comedian, and his podcast is both grounded in reason and esoterically enlightening. I credit him (and an ex boyfriend for introducing me to the podcast) in my “waking up.” I encourage everyone to check out his podcast and stand up comedy. This is my Ode to Joe.
