Hello everyone and welcome to bill and frankie pop culture. I am frank going to be a little bit different this week. It's just me i don't have my i- lifelong companion soulmate bill next to me but <hes> we decided together that it was better to put out a special bonus different episode than no episode at all this week so that's exactly what you're going to get something. That's a little bit different different than we're used to different content different structure and different production bill is the ace behind all of the editing and <hes> music and sounds that you hear on the week to week basis year makes us sound pretty and professional and <hes> <hes>. I don't do any of that stuff and i couldn't if i tried so i'm just gonna come to you fresh and unfiltered this week and we'll see where it goes so bear with me and <hes> i still think we'll be able to put together a pretty decent show so fifty years ago this week was probably one of the most underrated forgotten rock and roll oh festivals ever the atlantic city pop festival of nineteen sixty nine and my father was there and he sent me this text yesterday morning fifty years ago today. I was reborn born at the atlantic city race track what i would see that day will stay with me. As long as i live in changed me forever. Mike carabello arms playing conga with a huge afro greg rowley saying it looks like we'll stick with the latin shit. You guy seemed to dig it more joe cocker asking me to hand him a floor tom in those famous boots two feet from my face. The next time i saw those boots was in the woodstock movie. Frank zappa deceased driving a station wagon filled with the mothers of invention and canned heat with bob hite also deceased sitting on the tailgate that unknown guy standing up giving the finger anger screaming. Well fuck you too hugh masekela. Please don't ever let these stories die so i wanted to read that you guys because i think it's a pretty cool piece of american rock and roll history and also is an amish to my father to never let those stories die as he asked <hes> you know he's been telling me their stories. Since i was little mike carabello belo in greg rally of course at the time in santana <hes> in the buzi refers to of joe cocker's you'll so you can see him in the woodstock movie when he's singing help a little help from my friends they're they're blue leather with white stars on them like the american flag cost boots. I just picture frank zappa and those those maniac shim muslim invention their car. Just what a different scene in time it was back then for music. The next thing i wanted to talk about was <hes> jump in the comics here for a second so you know d. C. has recently launched their black label and you know from the very we start the first couple things that happened with the to me. Were just a little funky right so what happens i they retroactively a brand the white knight shaun murphy's white knight as the black label after it had already been out in singular issue for him and completed had raised success. They go in they they they. They retro label it. The black label little strange then they put out batman damned which i mean. I'm not as rela guy. I am not a big bermeo guy either so you know my opinions on the quality of that book you know are of course not going to be super positive but regardless of that you know they they do the gimmicky you know easy headline about you know putting batmans dick in the comic book right and then going loops sorry and you know quote unquote pulling it off the shelves and reprinting it without that man stick. If any of you are wondering i of course have the one with batmans dick. I wouldn't have it any other way so right off. The bat does two things. It was just kinda like it's kinda weird right. You know so is this just a gimmicky title. That's going to be headlined. Grab after headline grab and then you know try to. I'm trying to trick us readers into thinking. This is a legitimate line that this is a true replacement of vertigo by you you know retroactively labeling white knight and throwing in cursing the white knight and <hes> last night on earth all near the black label bowl you know what is the black label as an adult is it is it another planet is an else world as it somewhere. The multi-diverse is it can and is it not canon. What is it so the most recent one. That's coming out. Is this frank frank miller johnny romania junior superman year one now. I think we can all agree that batman year one is one of the best comic book doc arc's ever published change the texture and form of the batman character to this day very celebrated very popular rightfully so it's fantastic book. I shall become a bat so d._c. Knows when they put out a book called superman in your one written by frank miller people are going to buy it. I did then i so so the first issue comes out oversized oversized issue the arts beautiful nothing wrong with the art. The art is beautiful but it's a weird weird story right. It's this is clearly not gonna be like from like the first five pages you know. This is clearly not going to be what batman year one was to batman. You know the it's. It's not even really a year one story. It's it's a it's an origin story. It's a it's an at least first issue is a you know baby toddler adolescent high schooler story so the first thing that like like naming it was when the cans take a baby out of the pod. He's got some telepathic. 'em path abilities going on. He talks about calming their their fears are or whatever he can read their minds and read their emotions so that's the first weird thing superman's a telepathic empathic. If now i guess we'll see where that goes. You know then we then we get into the meat of the story which is clark in high school he now and of course he's. He's a group. He's friends with a group of nerds you know and <hes> in the you know the all the bullies call them the freaks and they drive to school and they throw shit adam and <hes> you know and and apparently even the police are afraid to do anything about the bullies and smallville so then miller decides to <hes> to make like the first i act of heroism that heart that the clark decides to act out even though you know mock has been telling them that's the other thing before fragging in that sorry so in this story mock hence going no don't show your powers hide yourself at all costs just like we've always known him to be you know but then like pop cans coming up in the clark's bedroom when mackenzie around going you know <hes> love your mother but <hes> i you know listen son. Do what you gotta do. You don't let anybody push you around. Just don't be seen which is like the most anti puck can't thing ever so anyway so superman decides his first act of heroism and it's it's a good it's a a good choice. Okay get me wrong <hes> so miller. These bullies are so bad right. You know there's an attempted rape high the school rape of lamb lang you don't of course clark saves little you know little bit much you know and and then as you're reading this comic you're realizing like maybe frank miller isn't the right choice to write a highschool teenage angsty story. I mean this guy. Would you're reading this book. You might question frank. Miller was ever a teenager himself. I mean he he knows nothing about children. He's writing for aliens. No pun intended because clark is an alien. Get it so then. I think the thing that kinda made me scratch my head. The most was at the end of the book. It ends spoiler. Sorry guys clark joins the navy what the navy like. How's it going to make it through the physical without them figuring out. He's superman what's going to happen when they try to give him a vaccination. I mean plus superman's always been for for everybody not just the united states and this is he's going you know he's going into the navy and war are crimes and all and i mean unless they're going to use that to open his eyes up to why he should stand above governments and just be for everybody enough for a specific government. I mean i don't know but still i thought it was a weird choice. He's gonna go join the navy so we're only one issue in but man. I don't know just a weird urge story. I read the first issue saw finish it. I don't know this black label. Man like you know last night on earth was good. <hes> the first issue was good but once again it's it's a story that i don't know if it needs to be told you know it's kind of like in a post apocalyptic future superman. You're one why i i don't get it so i don't know maybe now with vertigo go folding they'll actually take this dc black label thing and and you know put some good writer created comics in there it but right now it's just all reimagining of already existing properties the most well known existing property so it's just i dunno. It's strange i dunno. It's i'm starting to feel like what i you know. I'm starting to feel like my original. Fears are confirmed. It's a money grab <hes> yeah so superman. You're one dc black label so the next thing i thought i'd do tonight is since i'm by myself and i'm feeling very lonely and very sad. I figured i i would <hes> answer some questions from twitter in from email so that's <hes> let's go to the we had quite a few which i was very he pleased with. You know everybody that wrote in thank you so much. I love it when i when when people actually take the time out of their day to to you know respond to a tweet a mind saying ask us questions. It's awesome awesome. It really makes me feel for she hated and you know makes this all worth it so thank you so much. Keep them coming so the first question is from <hes> <hes> wonder the wonder soul podcast w._m._d. Are s._o._u. L. at w. n. d. r. s. o. u. L. on twitter. What is your favorite live action adaptation of any medium man. That's a that's a really good question. <hes> i don't i'm not in on the disney live action adaptations <hes>. I don't really understand that why that's where we're going at this point <hes> none of the superhero movies that have been made are really adaptations of of any thing that has already been imprint. I tell you what it's definitely not is super. Mario brothers and that was a steamy piece piece of dog shit god. That movie was so bad has john leguizamo ever made a good movie think about it. Let me know because i can't think of one but hollywood loves awesome and the ice age movies don't count so let's see my favorite live action adaptation god i. I'm gonna go with well. Let's see so books count right so i'm going to be. I'm going to be shitty and cheap here and i'm going to go with <hes> the return of the king there you go. That's my answer answer. I'm sure i'll get yelled at because people are gonna say it doesn't count but it's a live action that tation of a book so eat my ass. Thank you at wonderful for writing in love. The question will this is a good one. I like this one. This is from the superiority complex at soup complex on twitter who the top five people named frank in pop culture. This is a great question so let's go so frank. Sinatra definitely frank sinatra tra. La franks out there. Is there frank sinatra. I'm gonna just name the only francs i can think of frank sinatra frank gordon frank miller. Even though i just kinda ripped his ass he has contributed a lot of good stuff. That's three frank. I don't think i know two more franks. Frank thomas the famous baseball player frank gore the mediocre football player from the forty niners. I can't think of five francs and pop culture so sad state of affairs. There's change my name kind of depressed right now. Thanks for the question. This is from discount podcast at discount podcast on twitter what it does pop culture taste like what's the texture like. That's a great question so i would say it's got a <hes>. It's got a hazy cloudy smooth mouth feel with like a <hes> tropical citrusy fruity juicy taste no bitterness. That's pop culture tastes like either that or chaka taco next question. We have two questions here. This is from another digital citizen and they are at podcast a._d._c. number one what you name your podcast if you had to rename it something completely house so first of all i would say thank you for the question checker grammar bill in frank in their erections sion's. That's what i would name it to. What is one secret about bill. You can tell us now that you are alone so i'm not gonna tell any secrets grits because <hes> those are very private fell out but there was one. I'll tell funny bill story so they're one there was a i think it was like our first night back in dorms sophomore year and we were like pounding a double beer funnel like all night and then we went to the to the community bathroom in the dorm and we're standing at the urinals he's at one year and limit the other urinal and we're giggling about something and all of a sudden and in the middle of his laugh he turns his head straight towards the wall and slams it down on the metal the top of the metal pipe coming out of the top of the the urinal and just looks at me with this crazy smiles like blood's coming me down his forehead yeah so he took it the hard way we had color that night brother brother the hard way john berger longtime friend john berger writes in bros. My son reminded me that mahershala. Ali was also uncle aaron slash prowler in the animated spiderman into the spider verse. That flick was dope. I had low expectations for it and it crushed in my opinion so thanks for writing in john. I guess that was in a response to <hes> to our episode last week. Where we talked about face foreign mahershala ali become blade. Oh kyle likes plays. My buddy. Kyle plays by the way anybody if you haven't seen me already on cadillacs plays just talking to on youtube. Go check it out. <hes> it was super fun to do. He's a great interviewer. Good dude go check out his channel. Kylie's plays on youtube good stuff and i was super. Super charming is always his question is if i could bring back one famous or historic person to life who would it be and why well i wouldn't bring anybody back to life because i saw season six <music> of buffy the vampire slayer where you know she died at the end of season five fighting fighting glory and then everybody was so distraught and sad that they brought her back for their own selfish reasons in as it turns is out we find out that buffy was happy and at peace she was in heaven and they pulled her out of heaven and she woke up in the ground the klare way out so now i'm upbringing anybody. That's sick shit question. The laughter afterlife at laugh life adam he asks how much of accepted knowledge in the world will be deemed incorrect by twenty. Any fifty is a great question. I'm gonna go with thirty five percents. The next question comes from geeky girls night then at geeky girls and i on twitter if you could eat one cheese for the rest of your life which one would it be. That's easy the sharpest sharp provolone you can find a lot thank you for in writing it so dr tony ortega friend of the show and he hero to humanity writes in who would be the only man and you would have sex with now. This is a trick question because he's trying to put himself over and get me to say him but i'm i'm not gonna say tony. I'm not into the to the but stuff snap my thing and <hes> you know that's where food comes out so i would really not enjoy doing it so if i had to to do it and i was unhappy doing it. I would want whoever i was doing it with to share in my misery and discomfort so therefore the answer is bill. That's all from twitter. Let's go to the school to email please. Anybody ever has a question or anything feel feel free to either hit us up on twitter at b. f. e. pop culture or more through email. Remember email email's almost archaic at this point. We're at eat pop culture at would love to hear from you so this one comes from big pete from from glacier bay. Ooh now big pete. I'm a fan of the <hes> laughter life podcast and big pete is a a longtime friend of that show who writes in often so i'm actually i'm very honored to be getting email from big pizzas. A big deal to me. Were were crossing housing over universes. This is <hes> this is a crossover guys. This is crazy. What is your favorite food to eat while watching movies how about reading comic is insulin expensive in p._a. Pete i well. There's a couple of questions here so i'm going to take these one of the time. What is your favorite food to eat while watching movies <hes> i like mike annex thanks or popcorn. How about reading a comic. I won't eat while reading a comic because i can't. I don't want to damage damage the pages at all so before i read comics i wash my hands. I dry my hands and then i wait like fifteen minutes to make sure there's not even any water residue do on my hands and then i read comics so i don't. I'm not going to eat while reading comics. I have masturbated though laureen comics but that wasn't your question is insulin expensive m._p._a. You know you're up in canada with all the the experimental drugs and free health care and i i mean i don't i don't know i'm not i'm not diabetic yet <hes> so i don't know if it's expensive in p._a. I'm lucky enough to have health insurance so i hope i never now but if it's that that important to you i can ask around. I have a couple <hes> couple of diabetic friends. I do that math is is <hes> fairly reasonable around here. Your next e mail comes from this is amazing the dump king from the dump frank. I found an old box of maxim magazine's here at the dump and they all have your name and address on them. Why did you throw these out. Do people still watch wrestling on t._v. I only watch rats russell over old scraps of food decay once again a lot going on here so i'm i'm gonna take these one of the time the maxim magazine yeah i i mean something had to go. <hes> it was either my mad magazine's of which i have plenty plenty or my maximum magazines which most of the pages are all stuck together anyway so i got rid of them kept. The mad magazine's humor over dried semen. Do people still watch wrestling on t._v. Well yes sure we watch wrestling all the time three or four nights a week actually <hes> to be honest. I'm questioning whether you listen to the show because if you listen to show you'd know that we watch quite a lot of wrestling on t._v. <hes> and did you say you only watch <hes> watch the rats russel roles cups of food so do the rat the rats have gimmicks and names and stuff <hes> or is it just <music> a rat one and rat too. That's my question deep woods willy frank. Do you live near the woods. What is the the best bug spray. How much is too much beat. Why don't more people live in the woods deep woods. Do i live near the woods. Let's take that one. I i know not anymore. I grew up in the pine barrens though so i was raised in the woods <hes> you know we had the jersey level two so they were scary. What's <hes> actually the camp that they filmed the original friday the thirteenth that was was like right around the corner from the house. I grew up in so scary scary woods. What's my favorite bug spray. <hes> i just white dog shit oliver my skin and <hes> kind of attracts more flies but since i'm covered in dog shit i don't feel the flies. If that makes sense you should try it. I imagine an raccoon or squirrel shit would all work the same as far as deep goes. I don't think there is such thing as too much. I've never heard anybody say well enough already. So you know your heart out. Why don't more people live in the woods. I know i don't live in the woods. I'm i'm still scarred to death jeff from the stories of the jersey devil when i was growing up so there you go so everybody thanks for the for the emails males in the <hes> in the questions.
