I remember realizing that anytime. There was like When it was all the china white in the late eighties that when it was around if people start dropping dead all the other junkies are they getting well. That's true and there was a joke in new jersey. When i was there. Were you know junkies would watch the evening news to see because it would say you know today in whatever county or four overdoses and then the next morning everybody would there be there for the morning shift to pick up that it's crazy so it's free advertising you like you know you really saw you really in the shit and saw that stuff kind of it must've like whatever you had to process once you got hold of sobriety. Must've been heavy. yeah. I think so but Where they cost friends. Many of them are just people that you knew in the lab. I know i've known a few close friends But the people i saw were not just running buddies. That you know yeah. Yeah yeah yeah people you saw at the place where yeah you know that guy you know he and i ran around for like three weeks together right and then you know Wow man so did you ever meet larry clark. No i never did now. He's still alive but i talked to him. I'd listened to that. Yeah yeah as hard to hard to wrangle. That one guy i was i was there with you. I was very excited for that when it was a tough one to keep bounds but But i'm a. I'm a huge fan man. I'd love to interesting guys who have there. There's so much hustle to them. Yeah yeah so.
