"I really think if you look at the history of this country, when things happen, the great politicians have an agenda that they're able to work with the other side. Otherwise, nothing more than an ID log. Spouting in your own self referential truths. It made me think as I was reading this, should Joe Biden do a trip across America? Because it seemed like that was a good idea at the time for Washington, and then you said later, I think it was Madison or James somebody one of the president Monroe, then copies this idea and does the same thing goes around. Now, of course, this is a different time. America is also a lot smaller, but has it occurred to you that maybe there's some there's something to be learned in the way that Washington sort of traveled the country and talked to people in different towns and stuff like that. Maybe there's something to be learned from that. Yeah, you know, in that I bet you refer to. I have no this whole attempt at infrastructure is a way to make all Americans feel included. Helped by government. Whether getting on the road, I don't know if that would, you know, work anymore. Just knowing how venomous. And how the one ends are so drawn. I'm not sure if you'd be able to achieve that. I mean, I remember Jimmy Carter was running for a second term as president. He went on a riverboat tour of Mississippi. The delta tweet and going right up the belt of the people he needed to win over. I will and all that. And he was the right, you know, that was the period of the killer rabbit, you know, attacking him. Yeah. Well, and it didn't help him. And so that makes me wonder, you know, and he was a southerner in the yeah. That's interesting. Well, what were you most surprised to learn about? You're a person that is probably knows more than most people about George Washington. You've written books, many books about the revolution. You obviously spent years thinking about George Washington and reading about George Washington. On this journey, were there any actual surprises you're like, I did not know that. Wow..

"The, dreams. Continue for days. Struggles with desires versus expectations. A lifetime. Of Abandonment. Time always seeming to slip away. Trying to figure out what to do with a hollow life. Michel is shocked when the man without a mask at the pharmacy steps into a dream one night and tells her mother to let her be. In, return me there for him the following day telling him to relax and breathe during a nightmare that soon, he will have more time with his family. Todd apologizes to Kayla for his outburst than the line at the pharmacy and she tells him she was also raised by a parent in the military and understands. None of it makes sense. On the final night of the cold, the old woman stands in a sunlit meadow in an otherwise dim forest. Her hair is loose long in gray in hanging down to her thighs. Before her on the stump is a dark grey stone. Basin. Michel Todd Kaelin Darnell approach to see what she is looking at. The base in this full of water, the color of the stone dark enough to create a mirror effect on the surface. The old woman from the pharmacy smiles when their four faces come into view of the water's reflection. At, like to show you something, she says She touches the center of the water with her fingertip, sending out ripples to the edge of the basin. They bounce back and when they meet in the center, the water swirls in the kaleidoscope of colors. Minds are awash in the strange Hayes of dreams were understanding as compressed by time were a lifetime can be felt and comprehended in a moment. The life of the old woman unfolds before them. Her mother telling her only good girls spying good husbands. They see. No friends outside of her family. All the hard work she put into keeping a home that in the end became an empty vessel only regrets. The colors in the water basin. Stop Swirling. The old woman turns to the group and says, none of you need my permission. But if you feel you do I give it to you. In the end the happiness you feel the ripples you send out as what really matters. I wish I had known that sooner. She touches the water surface again in the four others feel it's where they belong. I'm going to sleep now the old woman says. For the first time in days they awaken feeling refreshed. Michelin was looking at a cluster of flowers along the side of hosic meadow trails. When Darnell Arrive Klay Tonia Virginia, he said Virginia Spring Beauty. It's one of my favorite flowers in the area. He pointed to his face I remembered my mask this time. Kayla arrived next kicking her way through the long grass ebbing and flowing like green tied. Horizon crinkled into a smile when she spotted the other two. So this is for real. She said from behind her mask it wasn't a question. It was a lifetime of hoping one day something bigger would happen. That would change the way she looked at everything. So. It appears Darnall said. Todd. Bancroft. Lundberg his way along the trail huffing the entire time. Do. You. Still have the cold Michel said. No Todd replied. I'm just that out of shape. I. Need to get out more. After given todd a moment to catch his breath darnall said all right question. How did you all know to come here? I don't know Calas said I had a dream last night about the old woman from the pharmacy. She touched the bowl of water on a tree stump in the dream. I just knew to come here. darnell looked at the other two I assume we all had the same dream. Todd in mission nodded. When they all turned a look growing from the stump center was a red and yellow flower that looks like a tiny fire in the breeze. That shouldn't be here Darnall said. Michel was the first to approach what is it? A Pine Lily they don't grow up here. Her name was lily wasn't it? Todd. Wasn't alone in the knowledge. This does not make sense Michel said. Darnall crouched down for a closer look at the flower and yet here we all are. So what do we do now calas said. Michelle, pointed down the trail I suppose we go for a walk in figure it out. That works Darnall said but I I think we should all agree right now to stay out of each other's dreams and if anyone gets sick. Stay the hell away.

"Show is not about lumberjacks. My name is Christopher Grun Lyndon. I share my stories. Sometimes. The stories contain truths, but most of the time they're made up. Sometimes the stories are funny. Other Times they're serious. But you have my word about one thing I will never ever share a story about lumberjacks. This time for strangers are brought together when affected by a strange virus. And now the usual content advisory. This story deals with illness including mentions of covid nineteen. It's also not without moments of anxiety regret abandonment issues, nightmares, and even death. I know that makes it sound like this is a rough tail, but really it's a story of hope. Oh and just like almost every episode there are some swearing. You've been warned. All right. Let's get to work. The cold summer. The old woman in line at the pharmacy couldn't stop coughing. During cold and flu season, it would have been bad enough. But in early summer during an expanding pandemic, it was cause for alarm. The two people in line who are keeping their distance step back even farther while two others appeared to regret crowding the old woman seemingly on the verge of producing a lung from the depths of her torso in letting it hanging from her wide open mouth. So. Sorry. She said between hacking fits. I've had a catch in my throat for weeks that just won't go away. Michel Salih pointed to the mask she was wearing and said Madam you should be wearing one of these. Before vowing to come back when it was less crowded, she pointed at the other two and said Youtube as well. I'm not angry just concerned. Will you should be angry todd Bancroft said from the back of the line. We should all be that there are still people not wearing masks. They're putting us all at risk. I forgot mine Darnell Walker said. Seriously just been one of those kinds of weeks. Todd's mask inflated as he went out a dramatic cy. I'm so sorry the old woman said to the remaining three in line. Kayla Murray said, it's okay and took another step away. MISHA's Salib was lying on the couch before bedtime when she started to snuffle. She didn't feel right like a balloon was slowly expanding in her head and on the verge of popping. She got up and raced to the bathroom head tilted back and continuing to sniffle in an effort to make it to a piece of Kleenex before having her nose run everywhere. Her skull pounded as she blew. She grabbed the box and headed to bed. It felt like a bloody nose when it first hit Todd Bancroft. He was EDA's desk posting on twitter about how rude people were at the pharmacy earlier how an old woman was likely to give them covid nineteen how only one other person in the pharmacy line even wore a mask. Rape, before clicking the tweet button, his nose ran falling from his face and his keyboard shit. He pinched his nostrils together and ran to the bathroom for a wad of toilet paper. Pressing it to his nose, he grabbed another Wad and return to his desk trying his best to clean what he could reach on his keyboard. It would take more to clean beneath the keys but as head began to pound, he said fuck it and went to bed. Darnell walkers knows ran into the open copy of biochemistry in the molecular biology of plans resting on the kitchen table. He been struggling to keep his eyes open through a section about using biotechnology to create genetic diversity and plans for an hour wondering the whole time why he thought returning to school for a masters degree was a good idea. But. He wasn't the first parent with two young kids and a busy job to put in extra time in the hopes of a career that would afford him more time doing what he preferred, not what he had to do to make ends meet. fuck. As he rushed to the kitchen and wiped his nose with a paper towel his wife Kara wandered in and said, did you say something babe? Yeah, just. My nose ran into my book. I felt Kinda crappy all day. Think I'll clean up and head to bed. Kayla Murray was binge-watching the second season of stranger things for the third time when her nose began to hitch. ONSCREEN as Steve was surrounded by monsters in a junk yard, her nose began to run. She, wiped it with the back of her hand, but it wouldn't stop damn it. She picked up the remote and pause the episode before stepping to the kitchen and grabbing a paper towel. It felt like sandpaper she wiped her nose as though every nerve or face had poked through her skin and invited the pains of the world into her head. She turned off the TV and went to bed. Michel plops down on the floor with a handful of loose papers, a pencil and pen and a set of thin markers. She feels like a kid as she draws panels and thumbnails for the next page in the comic book story about a girl who's curiosity shapes the world around her. Her superpower. If she wonders why people are cruelty each other after rolling the reasons around in her head for a bit the problem is solved. She's moved beyond the grand designs is now left with smaller stories. In them, she sees the greater purpose of the comic book, a character who could see how people feeling like they need permission or given the freedom to pursue their dreams all from a seemingly chance encounter with a stranger who appears helps them and moves on. It's better than superheroes beating each other up and rescuing weaker people in need of their help. What's more heroic Michel believes than helping others helped themselves. The colors of the markers bleed through the paper standing her older sister's copy of cosmopolitan used as both a drawing surface in something of the catch color other than the floor. Zara will throw a fit when she sees another one of her magazines covered marker collars, but none of that matters. Right now, Michigan made something from nothing a story of hope. I wish you wouldn't do that. Her mother says what? Wasting your time drawing cartoons. They're comic books. She knows her mother doesn't see a difference. Your sister might not amount to much but your father and I expect better from you. But Zara popular mother she hasn't made something about me. She's childhood home does not seem right. It's a feeling more than anything tangible like something bad lives inside the walls like the house itself is alive and ready to close in on the mall. MISHA's mother says it wasn't easy for us. You know. I know. We just want what's best for you. You have opportunities your father and I never had you do well to read or study not draw your little cartoons. The Room seems darker than it should be. The nearby dining room is lost to a moon glow even though it's the middle of the day. Even something about Misha's mother seems off. She looks no different but some primordial instinct deep down says run. She wakes to the bright light of new morning..

Reconnecting with people from your past that you didn't think you were going to well, I definitely have had time to reconnect with like good friends because of standup out every night pretty much like if I'm not doing a shot now, Outta show, so all doesn't leave a lot of time to hang out with people who aren't comics at night. Right dinners, and things like that, so I have been able to reconnect with a lot of friends that so I just haven't been able to hang out with in a long time, and that's nice.

Something politically charged that I shouldn't be putting out there on facebook, because it doesn't matter in Buchan who cares, but you see somebody from high school that has just turned super pro dumdum near like you don't even know talking Israel is not a hoax stopped.

Like we saw your daughter, he's like they saw you and I'm like I. Just don't do that. were. What were you thinking about that as I talked about my career you where brings up the fact that he was in Vietnam and has lived a life, so he doesn't get like the most excited about. Just you know, wow! The La Times is I I saw the face a death. Right in front of me. You're like all right. Any war movie except for for us so. Men I had a teacher in high school was being more bet, he couldn't even handle the clicking of a pen because it sounded like you were loading. A gun couldn't handle Asian. Kids tap on the shoulder behind him broke one kids because of that because he was dropping off a note and Tabula shoulder, and he was like and. Phones cl- our camera. Click in, I mean just. That's very real did. That Times that was for doing a featured piece on you. How did that come about? I did see showcase this year the beginning of the January. and. A few weeks until lockdown. A reporter hit up CBS and was like Hey, whatever happened to those showcase? Like well, we're here big. It's a big diversity showcase that they. For people who don't know, there's been a lot of time casting it, and then you work on scenes. Right got one scene. It's a big industry showcase where you try to get. You know. All sorts of agents managers exacts Development, people to come see a a fun crop of actors. Yeah allport healthy eater, so sketch comedy show, so we do a big opening number, and then it's just a live sketch comedy show, so yeah I roll on. Some was super fun I mean it. Was It 'cause I mostly do stand up, so it was cool to stretch myself in that way. And the rest of the cast I mean they're so talented. People like that on Broadway. Written and sold shows. Yeah the cast was really I felt very intimidated by the. Yeah I was GONNA say. How did you find your lane? Or how did you settle in? And go all right. Well I'm funny and I got my own thing. And I'm bringing something different to the table. So how can I? Like when do you kind of you know? Look through your own set of goggles and go like that's something to fucking. Bring to the table here like I'm not. It's not a mistake that I'm here. Yeah it took longer than I liked. Definitely the because you're basically you're writing at CBS for. Cod like three months and then you're rehearsing at the El Portal for one whole month, so. The whole the the writing schedule I. Never Been in a room, set up shop. It's kind of like schedule where you. Hitch than for stocks do than table read them. Be Rights locking you. Keep do that every single week. To, bank, sketches. And so a lot of things don't really get more than one shot enemy, either it's like an idea that like flies, and you do really well with it, or it's like that's great, but okay. We're GONNA pass. So. It wasn't until I think for me like we got to. The talent I got onstage, and it's like Oh. This is I know how to be onstage to perform I know, have find flying here. Timing and The.

By Howard Harper Barnes Christian Anderson Peter Sandberg and Gavin Luke all licensed through epidemic sound sound effects are always made in house or found at free sound dot org visit no lumberjacks dot com for information about the show. The voice talent in music coming soon or soon ish which I suppose is a bit longer than soon. It's the very strange father son story. I've mentioned between about of unemployment easing back into a novel in self-isolation focus on finishing that story has suffered a bit and regarding self-isolation. I hope you and yours are as well as can be right now. Maybe it wasn't the best time to release a story about missing children. Or maybe I provided a little bit of escape but as I write this. I really wish this were the weird father son story because it's funny and touching anyway until next time. Be Mighty and keep your axes sharp..

"Just need enough and seriously love what I make. I love hearing from my customers and example. Last summer someone I sell to was hiking Colorado Colorado and a storm came up everything he needed to keep dry stayed dry. I got a postcard from him while he was still on vacation sharing the story. I have a file cabinet over there full of letters postcards and things like that it might sound funny but if this place several went up in flames that particular cabinet is what I'd Russian to save. That's so sweet. It really is about the relationships. We build through commerce immerse. Oh it is all right. What do you do when you're not working on some level I suppose I'm always working at least always thinking about new? Do things and ways to make existing product better. But it's not like some of my friends who tease me about. Being a hipster people can make fun of what I do all day. But I'm not the one answering email from my boss at three in the morning when I wake up in the middle of the night and see my phone lit up from people working from their beds. When I'm not working and I let my mind go I enjoy reading? What do you read novels really? Yeah I know is an entrepreneur. Sherpur Noor people expect me to read business books but almost everyone. I've read his like ten to twenty pages of actual decent information expanded to hundreds of pages just so people feel like they got their money's worth and accomplish something. There's no challenge in those kinds of books. I can hone in on all I. I WANNA learn with a Google search and not waste of fifteen to one ratio of waiting through a bunch of bloat fiction just does something to my brain. I not only get a feel for how to tell better stories but I learned what different people deal with. When I read books written by people I might never meet business? Books seem to break everyone down into just a few things or types because easy sells most entrepreneurs meat no nothing outside their little bubbles goals because they see everyone is an archetype instead of an actual human being if your marketing anything and not reading fiction. And you're probably mediocre at best in very limited in thought and understanding. I see what habits or mindsets make you successful successful well reading novels but part of what I love about. Novels is the time it takes to read one. I'm not sitting there. Listening to audio. Books is at two times speed just to get him into my head and along those lines. I'm putting time in deeper uninterrupted. Thought into what I create I give idealism awesome processes time to incubate and I don't mean for a day or a week some things I think about for years most of those may go nowhere if I measured it but I find that in giving things so much time other things bubble up along the way that I'd never come up with otherwise I mean I get worse. South Godin is getting at when he talks about always shipping things but a machine gun approaches. Desperate don't you think I mean anyone can do it. Maybe you hit a thing Pinger to once in a while. But I'd rather take the time dial in my sights in not Mrs. Schott so you're saying you never make mistakes. I didn't saying that I said I never miss. When it's time to pull the trigger on an idea you'll have to forgive me if I don't believe you you're excuse but it's the truth so many people just throw so much stuff out there hoping that something sticks? I'm not the Kinda Guy who thinks about monitoring everything I mean Shit. People can't even have a hobby anymore without everyone asking how they're gonNA make money with it. I find that sad a friend suggested I turn my love of reading into into a side hustle and man. I hate that term. I'd rather make my one thing matter so I don't have to do other things on the side. I work work and then I enjoy my time not working but to this friend. I have this big youtube following. so He's like dude. You need to figure out how to monetize reading thing. No I don't need to figure out how to monetize reading because I enjoy reading and some of the other things. I do simply for the sake of enjoyment. I don't think people enjoy things anymore. Because unless you're hitting your numbers. Even hobbies have become stressful things for people now again. I know that I'm speaking from a place place a privilege and never wanting for anything growing up but I do know what enough looks like. My Dad's stopped what he did because it made him sick. You can't catch infinity infinity so find enough and enjoy what comes with it. I can't tell you the last time I stressed about. Something didn't have a good night's sleep that's worth worth far more to me than some five year plan that quadruples my income. I mean I appreciate what you do but I bet you in your audience would be happier if you we're always chasing things. Well this is taking a bit of a turn. I'm sorry no it's okay. Oh Kay can can I ask you in your audience. Something then share. What does enough look like to you? I'm not sure I guess I never thought about it like that. Brooke you have over or one and a half million followers on Youtube and you post three times a week getting almost a million views each video between your ad revenue. Money is an influence. fluence are in your products. I'm sure you make considerably more than I do. Yes about three to four times more each year from the numbers you discussed well. When does it ever become enough? Brooke narrow I suppose if I slowed down at all goes away. Well I think you have have more than enough. I think you need to stop chasing so much. You'd be a lot happier are you okay. No I'm really not I have you on the show to have a nice conversation about what we do and you pull some. Almost abusive mentor shed on me. psychoanalyze me tell me. I'm not happy. This show is a mutually beneficial thing for both sides. I really do hope it helps us nurse figure out something they'd rather rather do so. Don't you dare tell me what enough is because between your parents you grew up a billionaire. Who never wanted for anything? You can make nothing at all the rest of of your life and your good. I don't expect people to know my story but let me put things in perspective Larry. My Dad was a heavy equipment mechanic. Manik and my mom worked at a convenience store until I made enough that she didn't have to work. You grew up here in the city. I grew up in Flat Lick Kentucky and no. That's that's not a nickname that's the name of the actual town. I'm sorry I'm not done. I have four siblings and there were times at dinner when we were lucky to have pork chops purchase the day of expiration that and wild potatoes and a can of green beans often. It not even a big can of beans just a regular what fourteen ounce can or whatever it is so imagine this you fucking love green beans. But they're five other people going at it and if you wonder Y I didn't say six and include my mom. That's because I later found out. She used to eat saltine crackers and butter while cooking dinner for a says she could get some fat and carbs and leave something thing for her family. You mentioned your dad retired from trading. How is he today? He's fine. Yeah well my dad's been dead for years Mesothelioma from brake pads and clutches than Shit. So imagine how much all that fucks you up. I could be as rich as your family and still worry that one day I would wake up and it would all gone even though I know better. But that's the wicked thing about growing up in poverty. You really can't escape it even when you're rich I have to try ten times harder better than people who grew up with money and I'm still worried it will all fall out from under me and I'll end up back in the gap with nothing again like that's my destiny i. I'm sorry Brooke I had no idea I didn't expect you to but don't pull some abusive self help. Google shut on me. About what enough looks like Kay. I think we're done. I'm sorry I really am. Can I say one more thing. Sure why not. This is a mess of an episode as it is. I have a confession. What's that I don't make even a fraction of what I said I make? I wasn't kidding about the postcards from Colorado. were making things for a client with a Lake House. ALSOP walkup book. But that Guy's my dad's best friend Kinda sucked at design. Even though I did make it through school most of what I do isn't very original. I guess it's stuff that I kinda copied from J. Peterman or stuff. I learned how to do online. I'd probably be happier if I took my friend's advice and started doing book reviews. So yeah there's that one more question sure it's kind of a weird one but now that you have money. How often do you eat green beans? I.

We're hoping to have it released next weekend. December seventh or eighth. The good thing that means you get to episodes in December because the annual high of Christmas stories is coming together rather well and while being being sick for a couple of weeks has affected the recording schedule. I have plans for stories through January and maybe even February if people WANNA story longer than most I share here after that I have a handful of stories in various states of development but I may take a break in February or March to devote my full writing attention to a novel.

No booger looked down down at bobby clearly not understanding what he had done wrong. Bobby grabbed the orange extension cord from boogers neck and led the creature home as quickly as he he. Could you stay here understand. Bobby shook his head the left his bedroom and ran for the garage. He didn't WanNa do it but he was desperate. He grabbed his father. Circular saw he'd never used a power tool but there was no better time to learn than now he had seen bigger stomach. convulsing with Chad struggles. There there was still perhaps time to save him. As bobby made his way through the kitchen he heard his mother's car pulling up outside from his his bedroom he heard crashing in being. This was the day his mother would have too much. This was the day he'd be shipped off to military school. He was sure of it. He ran into the bedroom prepared to cut booger wide open. Freeing his enemy from the creatures gooey gut the thought devastated bobby with the specter of a father. A brother gone and the mother who liked cleaning more than her second born. Son The eight eight-foot mound of garbage tearing up his bedroom was the closest thing he had to family. He wondered if booger could somehow be trained. He wondered if the circular circular saw would kill his new best friend. He heard his mother opened the front door moments later. He heard his mother screaming coming downstairs. Bobby Simmons what is this mess. He ran into his bedroom slamming door behind things. Were only getting thing. Worse Booker had eaten. Bobby's dresser and was now working on his bed. The creature was swollen like a tick when booger gobble the bed. In two quick goals Bobbie never had to use the circular saw booger. Booger could hold. No more the bed was one bite too. Much bobby's new friend had exploded everywhere. Sending bags of garbage kitchen appliances in Chad Ernst flying about his bedroom from afar coroner. He heard Chad Ernst Moon.

Explained the mess in the kitchen. If you don't we'll have a good excuse. You may be taking a trip to Saint John's before your father even gets home. Do you hear me young man. He had no choice voice. Bobby opened the bedroom door leading the mess. That was once booger fill out his door and into the hallway. His mother grabbed her Knows wrenching sounds like the time she found spoiled milk. In Justin's room echoed firmer throat. She looked at the mess. In Bobby's room. She looked at Chad Ernst covered in Goo. What the Hell is going on here? I told you to clean this room and instead instead you invite your little friend over and trash the whole damn house. He needs to leave. And you need to get cleaning.

"Bobby. Simmons took one last look at the cup full of spit. He'd been filling for two days before dumping it into his bathtub. He used his older brother's others hockey. Stick to mix his saliva into the mass of toenail clippings urine dirt dog feces toilet water. Garbage Motor Motor oil decayed leaves rocks in the contents of the vacuum cleaner bag. And then the bag itself. He was almost almost done. Except for the final ingredient. The piece de resistance digging deep into his nose bobby fished out a huge boettger vulgar. The kind that feels like they're connected to the bottom of your brain. The kind that feels good coming out. He Bald it up with his his fingers and added it to the mass in the TUB. Like a tiny mucus covered Morowski. No Cherry atop compost Sunday. Then he dropped into nine. Volt batteries expecting the mass to us to life but nothing happened. He figured the batteries would be enough to jump start his creation Shen after all when he touched his tongue to the batteries they tangled in his mouth tasted like he was chewing aluminum foil he needed. It's something better though something more jolting like lightning with Frankenstein's monster bobby. Once heard about a man who didn't want want to live anymore. The man filled his bathtub climbed in dropped the livewire toaster into the water. A jolt like that Bobby hoped would bring the heap to life but his mother would scream at him if he ruined any kitchen appliances even in the name of science after giving it some thought. He grabbed his brother's portable stereo. Justin wouldn't need it. He was away at military school. The cord on the Stereo didn't reach the TUB. However so bobby got along orange extension cord from the garage? That did the trick. When replugged the Stereo in one of his brothers rap? CDs Played Deported Training Forty. I just in fancied himself hardcore despite being another raft listening white boy living in in the fluent suburb of Chicago. When he finally got his driver's license he let the whole world know by driving around in his tricked out? Honda Civic Windows Down Basin away blocks before he drove by a house. Its inhabitants heard the of an Alpine sub Woofer for pumping new shit by NWEA. To complete the image Justin wars cap backwards said Yo allot an in stopped calling his mother mom opting instead for bitch your bitch sub. He said one morning and a bad accent. Cold from boys is in the hood. I want me some motherfucking wheaties a week later. He was shipped off to Saint John's military school. Where drill instructors? There's made Justin the bitch. Bobby pulled the shower curtain to the wall and dropped the Stereo. In spark sprayed the wall outlet collecting his feet before going cold. He thought for sure he'd end up electrocuted. Just like the guy in the tub with the toaster poster but a big pop followed by the smell of ozone and burning plastic told them the outlet was fried and that he was safe a thick foul smelling smoke rolled over the edge of the TUB. A gurgling sound like a carp sucking Jello through a straw came from the other side of the shower curtain. He pulled it back in stared in awe at his work. Wow standing before bobby was a shambling mound ready to take its first sticky steps into a strange new world it was covered with tiny pores swelled swelled and burst under pressure like fishers at Yellowstone National Park the resulting odor lingered somewhere between sulfur in catfish bait crossed with the stench of a dead bloated raccoon. Bobby saw on the railroad tracks in the heat of the previous summer. It was a vile pile. Come to life. The orange extension cord hung from its neck like a ready made leash just waiting to be used. Just in Stereo made up the bulk of its head. The two speakers looking like over sized is the the volume knob serving as knows its mouth was a big gurgling hull in sticking out from its neck where the two nine volt batteries he's like those from the neck of Frankenstein's monster. Hello Bobby said. He expected a grunt or a growl L. but instead he was met with the wave of base. What Bobby said Bobby reached up to the monster's face and turn the volume down? You need in name Bobby. Said is he noticed something sticking king out like a war beside the creatures knows something bobby pulled from his own knows several minutes before I've got it booger a knock at the door startled Bobbi. It was his mother. What are you doing in there? She said nothing going to the bathroom. When Justin was twelve he went through a phase where he locked himself in the bathroom even though he didn't have to go he masked what he was doing behind closed doors by playing his stereo loudly? It drove his mother mad and looking back she attributed needed the beginning of his delinquency to those time spent alone in the bathroom. Stop that right now young man. She tried the doorknob but it it was locked. Stop what Bobby said. His mother was taken off guard. She didn't know how to say it. Stop that that you know that going to the bathroom. I know what you're doing. Your brother did it too and look where it got him. She rattled the DOORKNOB. Unlock this door now. Young Man Bobby pulled the shower curtain shut in crack the door. He rocked back and fourth acting like he needed to get back to the toilet when the stench reached his mother's olfactory system. She crinkled her face in disgust and gas gas for fresh air. Bobby capitalized on the moment. It's your meatloaf. He said rocking even more he looked back commode and rubbed his stomach. I think it got to me. I don't feel so good. His mother defeated covered her disappointment with anger. Well when you're done go clean your room. How many times do I have to ask you in? Stop listening to that rap music. I heard you you. Do you WANNA go to military school like your brother. Bobby's MOM Yaldo lot just in said it stemmed from their father's frequent business in this trips. Bobby never knew what was wrong with business. TRIPS their father had to work after all any needed to bring his pretty secretary along right. Okay Bobby said while shutting the door when he felt for sure his mom was gone he pulled back. The shower curtain and looked at his creation. Booger was created for a simple purpose to get revenge on Chad Ernst. The school bully Chad picked on Bobby unmercifully whether it was a simple slap to the back of the head in the hallway or an all out beating there was is nothing bobby feared more in life than the mere sight of Chad Ernst. We better get you to my room. Bobby said to Boettger while reaching for the extension in court he helped booger get out of the bath. Tub and check the door. Is Bobby scope out the hallway. Making sure his mother was nowhere appeared to be seen. booger caught sight of the mirror. Stopping for a moment to admire itself. It reached up in fidgeted with. Its nose does shots. Bobby said Bugger. Turn the volume down in stared at the mirror. It reached out with a dripping. Pseudo pod touching its reflection leaving behind gooey Smear like oatmeal. When Bobby was sure the coast I was clear? They made their way down the hallway leaving behind a wet trail. Like the passing of a four hundred fifty pound slug..

We are your source for the latest news hardware and apps for the Android faithful. I am Florence ion. And I'm Ron Richards back just in time for Jason to be out this week. So you sub the I miss last week. Jason MRs this week. It's all good because we have an awesome guest is gonna join us for the top of the show. We have Hymie Rivera at pocket now Hymie you're a CCOO now. Tell us chief creative officer. I know I like that. So you get to come up with all the creative directions of pocket now. Let's just say it's just making a lot of things official pretty much. Very very creative. Well, we're we're so excited to have you on because we have a pack show, right flow. We've got so much hardware and talk about this this episode. We got a bunch of awesome other stuff going on in the Android world. But let's dive right into it. Because high may only we don't have you for the whole time people got their hands on the Samsung galaxy fold and you were one of them. Correct. You mean this one oh. Oh. I'll let you go home one. Oh, yeah. We'll tell tell us about the whole experience because that was a bit of a surprise, right? So honestly, we were some into, you know, a private event we assumed like all of us. None of us were prepared to leave with the product. I mean, we kind of heard that. There were limited supplies and everything. And no, I mean, they they gave us the full time to play with the device they gave us their preview and everything to expect about it. And then when we were on our way out they're like, yeah. And here's your package, and I'm like, oh, wait is that you just have to be for forty five minutes inside filming my hands on and everything. And now, you tell me I can leave with one I would have left forty sweating bullets trying to get all the be roll that you could without realizing they would give you one. You know, how we roll? You know, how we work like if I would've known I would've just jumped out of there and gone to our office the film, but they had they had some experiences with the whole idea of augmenting. The fact that you have this product, particularly unblocking experience, they had these special boxes, we actually teas that on our Instagram and be experienced has been interesting. I've been using it for twenty four hours. And actually the reason I need to go because I'm working on my twenty four hours video to tell everybody about it a cassette up. This phone is like different. It's unique. It's not like it's like a galaxy S ten plus. But then it's not because there are things that are completely different. And it's understandable for Samson design new form factor. That's the whole idea. Oh, I'm sure Ron has a lot of questions Raj first. And then we can we don't script. Let's let's let's make this official and going Stewart officially. You gotta get that. Nice music. Okay now. Now, it is time. Now, it's for real so galaxy fold right out of the box. You said you got a great unbalancing experience. My first question is what is the fold feel like do feel thanking does it is a click does it. Yeah. Listen to this. How does this sound? This is the coolest thing the sound of the magnets make the magnets are crazy strong like if I could have an apple pencil here. Like, it'll literally cling onto anything it's very very strong. Wow. Wow. Now, there you u 'em son galaxy faults now what does it sound like when you when you fold it out that like does it when it opened? It doesn't sound like anything. There are no audio. No audio cues that you've extended it. The field is interesting. It's literally like if you if you if you have a do, you have a galaxy S ten with you? It's like stacking two together. Well, okay. And so that's good. And that's bad. That's not necessarily Mike you for best experience because it's not a pocket device. So for example, what you get in the box. You get a pair of galaxy buds. You get this interesting case made of kevlar, and it's actually two pieces to pieces in one. Oh, yeah. Because you have to snap it on. And so here's the thing. Because it's an what else do you get you get, you know, your typical wiring USPA adapter OT. Gee, that's that's what you get in the box. But, you know, probably the the most interesting part is again, it's because it's so thick this like I try I've been trying to fit it on my gene pockets all day. No, really, you're using like baggy jeans or something like that. This is not a comfortable phone in your pocket. It's not. A lot of people. I exactly exactly. So if you remember those ads are probably I'm too old, but the ads of the razor where it can fit into like release skinny jeans. Okay. This is not the phone not the phone all again, grab grab two phones to galaxy S tens and stack them together. That's how this phone feels. It is thick. And it's it's not just thick. But also let me try to. There's a clipper I show this visit occasions in the video you notice that there's a separation between. Yep. And held together by a. By a hinge ensure there's a lot of beautiful technology here and everything, but you know, going back to the feel probably for me that the most important the most interesting part is it doesn't it's like of Samsung doesn't want it to feel like a phone. It's like, listen, whatever we've been doing for the past decade of flat slabs and everything this is something different. And so it's got its pros and its cons of. It's got the pros that it's like really good for one handed use because of the small display up front. It's very very easy to manipulate. The problem is that the screen is like it's like an external screen for an old flip phone. You won't be able to do much with. It was my question is my question. What do you find yourself doing with the with the sunscreen? Yeah. Okay. So once I figured out a couple of things. So like one of the things that I'm writing on my script right now for my video is like the first thing is the launchers are different. So whatever you. See in the external screen is not what you'll see in the Tri. Gosh, a throwback. Yeah. It's a completely different thing. And so you won't complain about the quality of either displace both displays are gorgeous. And everything it's just the external one doesn't necessarily work with the internal one. And so however, you have your folder sit on the inner screens is not how it works on the outside. You're going to have to set your folders up again won a separate. So that's not a good experience. And then like the only thing that's like mirrored is like if you select the want the app trae on the front display, it'll bring you the app trae on the back this play, but then your folder all gone, and you have to start over. So that is is it's like that level of disparity is probably one of the things that I had me a little off. And then I just took the time to build by folders. And that was because like folders like if you notice all you consider three icons at the front. That's about it. And then I had to like widgets or like extremely small like this is not a us. This is not a usable screen looks like really tax that doesn't look comfortable to read. Exactly it is not. And then you've got cases like, for example, it's designed for you to interact with the product like if you're on a rush, but then the Samson keyboard because I'm multi-lingual in your multi-lingual too. I switched the Samson keyboard off because I'm multi-lingual. And so, you know, I drift mortar swift key because of that functionality. In addition to the swipe flow sort of design that swifty has which is crazy. It's really practical for the outer display that the you know, swiping on that. Keyboard is the best thing you can do. But then the problem is that if because this thing is so wide on the inside you have to use the keyboard split. But then if you split it on the inside one thing that does mirror is that it will split the keyboard on the outside. And so that's just like what that's one thing that I wish I had an option to like have one keyboard for the outside when keyboard for the inside. But that actually does mirrors. It's it's just it's a weird. Yeah. So so have you had a chance to play with any of the other folding phone prototypes? That are out there. And if so how does this one compare? I was one of the first people to try out the. Mate X vibe Meer. I was I was just at the right place at the right time. And actually, I did a video because before touching the made X because when we were at him WC WCM Bunsen, they didn't let anybody touch the fold at all we were at the unpacked event flow. You were there with me. They didn't let us touch the galaxy full that'll and actually wasn't even on this play. I even heard that there were certain people that were allowed to touch it. But we we weren't part of that group. We were at him to be see we were invited to his special preview still weren't allowed to touch it. And you know, inbetween that I land that the right party at the right time with the right person from Walwa, and he's like you wanna play with you wanna play with the accent? I'm like if I can show it on video. Yes. And he's like, yeah. Here hold it. And so somebody filled me using it the made X is a completely different product. The made X is more like a at. I don't know. I didn't believe in foldable before that. And that's the reason. Why he gave me the product because he's like I've been watching your videos. I've been hearing you criticize the concept of foldable 's here's a foldable. Tell me nothing. And I'm like, wow. So my my response was okay. I'm I've changed my mind. But the reason why is because the made X feels like a galaxy note nine it's slightly thicker than a galaxy note nine when it's closed. But then when you open it it feels like a kindle oasis. And so it feels like to products that are already in the market, and for me that was the thing. Like if the product can feel like a phone when you use it like a phone than great, the the galaxy fold doesn't the galaxy full feels like a tablet with an assisted small. You know secondary screen. That's how it feels like, but that's more tablet than anything. That's what that's what my main. Now. I have not I was not invited. I did not get an unblocks inexperience. I, you know. And and listen, I'm pro foldable. So maybe that's why they don't need to convert me. But I was but my main kind of takeaway after seeing the galaxy falled was yeah. Was that how functional is the phone is this this looks like a tablet, you can fold in half and same thing with the way mate. So it's really interesting to hear that the mate feels like a phone and not a tablet of may when you close it. And it's funny. How many people were criticizing the mate because of the design. So it's got this button that you president on snaps in it opens up and it turned. But the thing about it is it feels like it can the laces if you've ever used one that's exactly the feel from the lightweight -ness of of of the design to the sturdiness of the product it feels like a very well done product. And then you snap it in the back. And so obviously that brings a lot of challenges that displays of polymer it'll scratch. That's the smart thing about the fold the fact that the screen is protected on the inside. So from a durability standpoint, I feel that this device will probably last longer.
