I know you think four that doesn't sound like a good Monday pickup the potatoes but I'll tell you what some of these potatoes are hardy all right hardie potatoes number one Ashwan pokemon league. This is Brian Ashcroft to talk you. The perennial loser Ash Ketchum is now a winner in the most recent episode of the Pokemon Sun Moon animate ash broke his losing streak with a championship trophy for decades. Ash Rush has lost in Pivotal League Championship matches in two thousand sixteen. He lost in a heartbreaker during the kilos Kayla Carlos thanks Barrett League finals in the POKEMON. XYZ enemy but now he is a lowest current reigning champion you kids with your words. Ah Brian which things on Kentucky reactions one. I thought that was meaningful. Here was from at Ralston just to be clear and not have anyone confused accused Ashwin a polk Amman league not the polk Amman League. There's no such thing as the pokemon league since since each region has their own League Orange Island Island and battle frontier don't count orange is not a region and bef was a challenge come on. Hey Ma'am have this. Somebody's gotTA call it down the line. You know what I'm celebrating because God knows I'm confused. I'm in on top of that and other Kazakh article. I saw that I wanted to loop in James Witt brick had the story the original English dub of voice actor of ash congratulating Ash Veronica Taylor put up a video where she did the ash of originally talking yeah no honey. I'm really you call right now because prove it. We're ash was congratulating Ash James Academic transcribed it reads like this. Hey it's your younger but still the same age Ash Ketchum congratulations on winning the polk among league I want to say I always knew you could do it but really I didn't. I only knew that to achieve your goals. You had to train hard in that is true but along the way I found out the importance of constantly learning in challenging yourself and being open to new new experiences that by helping others you help yourself in mostly. It's not winning the counts but how you play the game but man it sure feels good to win. Congratulations nations and keep up the good work. I gotTA GO MOM's making dinner with Mister Mind. Catch you later no mega. How does this make you feel? I'd never thought I'd see this day. I think when you when you get so accustomed losing in eight hundred bits from Cleveland so he he should understand this but apparently haber yeah when you're so accustomed to it. I think you just assume that that's just the way it's GonNa ago yeah so this leads to more questions when I guess we'll get to those later but what does this mean in terms of Canon like. Where do we go from here? This is the new pokemon game reflect this win. How does this go will? It be challenged later like I'm really curious where this goes Barrett your polka maniac. Uh I'm not as hardcore as one Sir Tim gettys who's leaning around the corner. Look at him. He looks like he's leading in listening to little sisters. Talk about take yeah I I really loved the Pokemon anime when I was a young buck and I play the games like every every couple generations yeah so like I haven't watched the POKEMON anime probably since third gen which would be which region Tim. Do you know Hawn. Yes I probably haven't watched since then but it still great sue hear these stories that are coming out of the current run out Geez. We're all fucking. They're all right top sixteen. He made Tom Teen in the league and this little punk ass. Richie comes out with his peak. It's you sparky not yet way cooler that Ashby conceal chart. I choose you bad fucking. Call Greg not them way to early. He wants to listen. He Fell Asleep Asleep on the battlefield to the entire match up. You know what I mean. Then he goes on Orange Island's was all be real bullshit. They need some filler stuff. He won that stuff who cares they go on. They go to Joe to. It's a brand. New World is a whole new way to see a brand new attitude greg whilst that Shit to just keeps going losing losing losing last time second place second place man he meets second-place Greg but this time he finally did he and we did it. All it took was a weird art change but it's a cool. It's cool. Eh Spicy story places not him. I don't think you're GONNA have comments on a real level with since questions so you're not able to leave. Ah like a Meg Ryan was saying it's like when you get so used to losing share. You think this is how it's GonNa go your entire life and so it's inspiring to like you know even though I don't watch it anymore to hear the story of this kid who even though he fucked up in the first pokemon league that went to and got kicked out sixteenth place he kept going and he kept going to eighth place and he got fifth place I think at one point and then second place and then he finally did it and it's an inspiring story of no matter matter how many times life beats you down. You can always get back up and prove your worth an zero zero zero in the Patriots Dot Com Slash Kinda Fun Games and says Good Morning Greg and mega ran. He said to me the very best like no one ever was early Sunday the ten year old from Pallet town after twenty plus years as one a polk Amman league title now that Ashes One brings me to ask is sword and shield going to be a soft reboot of the brain as a whole the POK Mon company is not bringing over hundreds of poke monitor the new game and hinted to in the past that if ash ever wins the league they will change the protagonist of the anime with with the fact that the POK Mon Company everything related to poke him on. Does it seem that this is a path that you're going to go down or am I reading too much into this. We turn over to uh-huh expert. Tim gettys already leading in fire. Now he's ready. He's very fucking oak pulled up in a convertible Greg Miller full of women full of women again. Get also a ten year old child. Why is he driving? Why so many girls whose car why are they now wear their sleep problems here but the biggest problem ashes like Yo? How many badges do you doc is? He's like oh I got I got my fourth or whatever opens his little blue jacket shirt thing yeah. I guess it's a shirt shirt shirt shirt and he has I think it was like four badges at the time and Gary is like sh I got like ten and he opens it and yes ten badges. There aren't even ten batches and cancel now. Did he do that. How did he get bored? Badges suggest that even exist Greg Miller. I don't know I trying to make might not be clear. Thank you very set. The enemy doesn't give a flock about okay great dollars. This makes sense in southern at all. Does this mean there's going to be not at all. He just won a league. They make leagues up in this show like no one's business more than their badges doesn't even matter there's going going going and going and going guess what great twenty years from now yeah Astra win another one absolutely they're his friends Waldo brock misty let ash graduate window and then bringing in a new class no they never do that with his friends. They age them out weird girls. There's always new guy the rule of tooth's solid sky blue he's expert. I look come on. Give us some now. I'M GONNA screw it up. It's not an online I played a game. It's the you know the mobile one it's is. Is it a great ball. Yes everybody got everybody audio thoughts on Ash and what's going to happen to pokemon man. He's awesome. Finally we've seen a lot of US grew up on Pokemon so getting up for school in Middle School and everything wash pokemon in the morning and sent ask to all what is what he never one and that was the gorge joke all the time. We was like acid never gonNA win pokemon master. We're going to be poking around masters before him. They finally winning. That's that is a joyous for all of us that grew up on that so I don't know if they're going to change anything but I think it will changed the way we look at Ashley's. At least he's a winner. He's not actually winner. You know all right for the next nineteen twenty years and we'll be like but he got one exactly exactly what the one that's all matters. They can't take that away from one thing about ash is apparently pitcher may be the strongest pokemon in the universe so he spoke with pitcher. Oh I haven't senior they haven't I don't know I like I've seen I of course. I don't know anything in the photo of him with trophy peekapoos on his shoulder nine. Oh she's always with them so I don't know that's so you never give up. Believe your friends like ask Pichu yes there. You'RE GONNA get message anyone with team. Who did he win with all the Japanese name? You're you're going to go over there. There's going to be a tickertape parade for they're gonNA rename the airport number two on the report. What show the pictures show the pictures here ago? Uh Gary fucking there are eight badges to earn encounter. He got ten of them. Don't even make sense to Kevin Gimme exhibit be told you. You said he's not driving. There's another there's a woman behind the driver. That's his seat belts. I mean it was a different time back. Then number two other upper four final fantasy seven remake is going to have a classic moon. This is Michael Mc Ward or over a polygon final fantasy seven remake. We'll have a classic gameplay option for players who prefer their role playing games turn based just as the original final fantasy seven was back in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven at Tokyo game show on Saturday producer the producer of the game confirm that the remake of the classic Jr PG which updates the game to be an action RPG will offer an optional turn based battle mode where players can select attacks in other moves from a menu interface according to the translator recap of the final fantasy seven remake Tgif stage show from the game official twitter account classic mode will recreate the same style of turn based Gameplay from from the original while the standard of play will automatically fill the players ATB gauge as they attack enemies quote in classic mode. This aspect of gameplay is handled automatically the player or does not need to do anything and the character fights automatically charging up their age players who offer classic mode won't have to quote worry about the action side of the combat system scoring Ed said and Kennedy said focus on selecting commands making it possible to play final fantasy seven remake as if it were a classic menu based RPG of course this comes out on four March third twenty twenty mega heavy. Are you into this. Are you paying attention where you fall with the final fantasy. I'm a fan of the final fantasy now f f seven is my life. I love this game to probably twenty times. You WanNa know every time it comes out of have to buy it so but I don't really care about the classic mode I really. I'm okay with playing it and the action mode of teen was that because you've played it twenty times in in classic mode yeah. I think I'm ready to try something new. I'm totally fine with it played the demo and enjoyed it granted it can be a little tough concentrating on all your commands in your items and stuff while Oh you're in the middle of a battle share but it slows down so it gives you some some time to think about it and also that's always the thing with demos. They're dropping you deeper into the game we get it and you slowly starting locking stuff in getting things you're walking before you run on that one absolutely and I don't know I think it'll be more fun to watch. I don't WanNa Watch guy. Just sit there to to to to yeah what up and then come back to. You know it's not really that funny anymore. That's not that's not eighteen NARDA. BJ Bernardo right say the Patriots Dot com slash kind of funny games it says at the Tokyo Game Show was announced that there will be this classic old school battle Menu for final fantasy seven remake so can be like the original turn based game at first. I was like no thank you. I got to thinking about it. Do you see people using this old system if they provide really really Uberpool animations to keeping an entertaining could vis old system be new again. What changes would you like to see him and you interfaces for you to use it? He knew we were going to be here. He knew Gosh. We're right on on the same track here. I do need. I think cool animations but I don't even know how could they could be. I think I wanNA have a little more control so I I WANNA do through less watching and playing okay so I think that that will keep me engaged plus. When this constant random battles you're constantly trying to level up? You know I went new stuff so being able to run around dodge attacks and things in real time might make a lot more fun for me so I don't know what they could add. What do you think the classic classic mode for me? I think speaks to a few different things. I think more than anything it's going to be for your second or third play through I think they're I think they're giving you this final. Fantasy remake make right. They've already said it's going to be multiple games. They're gonNA tell the entire saga that way. I think it's that idea of when you're hankering to go back to it and we are getting ready for the next installment Tom using why play it again. Hey do something different right. That's always the cool thing about new game plus additional mode or some kind of different ways to play the game is the idea of like you know. The Arcade Games are always so great. You Ain't plus of jumping okay cool nominal play on the hardest difficulty. No you know bat sense going off on any blog. I think that's kind of what they're going for here. I don't I don't know how many people will start off that way and then ever GonNa WanNa see the new bells and whistles but eventually you're going to want that clown. You're GonNa want that classic thinking okay. I can see that yeah all right number. Three in Ohio Gamer has been sentenced to fifteen months for swatting this is Roxana Hegg MMA at the Associated Press in Ohio Gamer upset about a one dollars fifty dollar played a dollar fifty cent. Yeah we don't none of this type of this is GonNa that makes sense or be uplifting. While playing call of duty modern warfare to online was sentenced Friday to fifteen months in prison for recruiting prankster to make a bogus emergency call that resulted assaulted in the fatal shooting of a Kansas man by police Casey viner nineteen of North College Hill Ohio also is restricted from gaming activity for two years while he's super on supervised release after serving his prison term U S District Judge Eric Mellgren said in announcing the sentence viner repeatedly gulped and appeared Crestfallen as the judge announced his sentencing indecision he glanced into the courtroom gallery where his parents were seated his tearful mother got up and left the courtroom his father in Ohio Law Enforcement Officer put his head in his hands viner viner pleaded guilty in April two felony charges of conspiracy and obstruction of justice in the hope that he would not be sentenced to prison viner admitted trying to hide his involvement in the two thousand seventeen incident when he realized the antic had gotten someone killed in a brief courtroom statement viner told the judge he is awfully sorry for what happened quote. I never intended for anything to happen. I think of it everyday today prosecutors and defense lawyers in their plea agreement had recommended a sentence of two years on probation with the added condition. They've honor be confined for six months to his home home. Unless attending school work or church they also jointly recommended the gaming restriction but Melbourne said a prison sentence was required to reflect the seriousness of the offense in give the public a sense that the criminal justice system is working. It was foreseeable that something bad could happen by calling an armed police force to respond to what police believe was an escalating situation of violence he said quote we impose sentences not only for what people intend for but what happened Melgren said the death of twenty eight year old Andrew Finch of Wichita talking is this drew national attention swabbing a former retaliation in which someone reports a false emergency authorities particularly swat team to descend on address viner himself self image swatted just twenty days earlier to Kansas incident his defense attorney Jack Morrison. Jr. told the court he said Viner is remorseful. Noting that he lost about twenty pounds in recent months is quote on reflection of the gravity of what occurred as a result of what he believed to be a harmless prank unquote authorities said viner recruited Tyler Barest to swat an opponent then in nineteen year old Shane gaskill in Wichita but the address that used was old leading police to finch who was not involved in the dispute or video game gaskill who had previously sleep giving his old wichita dress to viner was charged as a CO conspirator co-conspirator after knowingly giving bears this same former address and taunting him to quote unquote. Try Something Barris of then twenty five year old Los Angeles main with an online reputation for swatting called police from Los Angeles on December twenty eighth twenty seventeen to falsely reported shooting and kidnapping happing at the Wichita dress. FINCH was shot by police when he opened the door to see what was happening outside. Holy Crap fucked up man. Wow it's one of those I mean we've talked about swatting before. We've talked about the repercussions of it as they've come to see this. It's one of those after agree with the judge if not even more time should be given given to the Catholic more time I mean you're an adult yeah. I would say a few years at least like literally the worst case scenario. I'm totally yeah yeah exactly because it's not it's not even the guy got killed wasn't part of the argument it wasn't part of the B-game just heard commotion outside winning and Got Shot. You know what I mean because the fucking Swat teams on his front lawn or in front of his house where he's his and that's the thing is like such a terrible terrible fucking situation but to get to the sentencing part of it yeah. I feel you have to give a a media hefty sentence to this just to make sure people understand. Don't fucking do this yeah seriously. It's never that serious say like a harmless prank like what are you going to happen when you report a shooting. It's that thing I don't know if you saw it. I don't remember his name dot com slash. You're on the kid who won the fortnight World Cup. Remember the few million dollars whatever and he's like fifteen eighteen. Whatever yeah like two weeks later he got swatted the only reason it didn't go bad right was one of the responding officers like new neighborhood like that's like a coin flip of how bad this stuff can go in the twitch breakouts? You'll see the people get swatted coming back into the house like interiors to talk to the camera they fucking. I remember the one of them. They pointed talking to my sister. You know what I mean like doing like why would it. Why would we keep going like this? leanna this is ridiculous. I think there should be automatic jail time for anybody one hundred percent in a hundred percent and it was Yeah Kyle Gerston bug. That's the one thank you very much your own and not really much to discuss. This is fucked out. This is horrible herbal I would I would be totally on board with more prison time forever. I'm awfully sorry fuck. You guys dead twenty pounds yeah okay. It was not on the Internet yeah number four. Let's cleanse your pallet with some stats from tweets Daniel Ahmad. you know an analyst we talked about here at Z. Huge had some numbers he put up on twitter over the weekend on number one is this playstation four sell through in the US is now surpassed thirty million with the market accounting for approximately thirty percent of total playstation four sales other top markets include Japan with eight point three million Germany seven point two million and UK with six point eight eight million step your game up UK expected more from me you know thirty million thirty percent of the sales all in the US for remember. Do you remember ps three three sixty generation. We're like I'm an probably one more generation and it's all going to go completely over yet arisen rolling in money making those happen around the Microsoft side not causal sales commod had this to say we're now two point where package sales in the UK for Microsoft titles are a tiny amount that are no longer important in its first week gears of war three times more package units than gears of war five and years of wars four sold four point five times more digital download and game pass are the majority by far this leads to from the NATO biologists and he wrote into Patriots Dot com slash kind of funny games and says UK sales numbers are in gears five has done very poorly with physical sales compared to gears for. Is this a cause for alarm for xbox. Is this the final nail in the xbox one x coffin or is this a sign that game pass slash game pass Pc. ABC's and digital are starting to really be the brunt of sales gear. Five is the Second First Party game to be released day and date on game pass but it also seemed to be much more anticipated than Forza horizon for an from the sound of a game pass is why people are giving gears a shot especially with the two dollars for two months deal. That's going on at the time of release. Do you think this report the fiscal numbers will continue to occur much more frequently. How did you think and PD numbers will handle years in game? Pass release numbers in the grand scheme of things so it doesn't seem like xbox is just failing compared to playstation four game sales so it's breaking down all right mega yeah. Are you worried for the health of xbox for Microsoft with these gears. Five numbers not feeling physically I don't know I'm a little worried yeah but I mean the numbers in comparison to playstation are not not great but I don't think I don't think they're going anywhere anytime soon so I'm not necessarily worried like it's about the over like the going belly yep but I do think the game has a lot to do with it and and I think that a good thing it was a good way to get people into it. It's a huge title but it's interesting to think that what was it five four point five more times gears award sold then five Twenty Times more twenty times now of of course different oral different times in your wrong some information coming in at jump in here matinees guitar and other analysts we talk about all the time here says this player counts two times gears of war four at three million so it's in terms of package gears sold four point five times more however in terms of player counts. It's up. It's doubling what's double gears for. Did you write that's big data important. You want people playing the game so my whole thing about this is I this is to be expected. We had a conversation last week right of does NPD really matter anymore. It's a nice thing for us to talk about on the show. I'm sure it's a nice bellwether to see how things are in terms of popularity but as we move more and more digital future and subscription services. NPD becomes more and more data yeah. I don't think it matters as much anymore. Like your question here right. An anthropologist is like what what are we gonNA handle those numbers. APD Won't handle it but Microsoft will continue to do this right in our go. The Microsoft wire thanks to the incredible support from our fans gears five kicked off off the holiday season strong attracting over three million players in its opening weekend setting new records for xbox game pass they go xbox knew what they were doing. When they put their games day and date on on game pass the first party stuff in the idea was there to get you in because sure they can get you for sixty dollars on one game or they can get you for two bucks for the first two months but ten dollars a month right for how many exactly is this that thing it's I I have who for handmaid's tale and I never watch anything else on it but I rarely early remember to cancel who sits there getting them money oh more and more exactly and as we get into it? That's what it's going to be about for them and I think how you NPD number that'll be something I'm sure playstation and certain games will beat their chest about to show it but Microsoft will continue to tout their own horn in come out and say this right. This is what's happening. This is the real thing happening opening with with physical music sales. I remember them. almost like calling it a disappointment. When a certain artist A buggy put out an album? They're like Oh it only soda hundred physical copies in the first week and had like twenty million streams right so it's like all right. It's time to think about these sales number metrics metrics don't matter you have to understand like how you're comparing in what you're talking about and that's the thing is I I it will be interesting in the long run. You know game passes still a gamble for xbox. They are doing in a very different way. We look at playstation playstation now playstation five like are they going to try to do something convenient level when they don't have to. I think the one that has to be crazy and has to be bold and has to make these moves and again. It's getting you to subscribe a game pass and even if you're just using it once every three months but you're paying them every every month. Let alone that if one day they do want to break off and go away from the console it's on. I'm sure they'd love to get an on switch with streaming X. Cloud next generation is going to be the most was fascinated generation in a long time of how do we launch and what is everybody saying absolutely I digress. Guess what that wasn't the only. Let's talk stats via tweets thing I had for you. Raise PITCHFORD tweeted tweeted over the weekend Friday fun fact this is him outside on Friday he tweeted fun fact on ABC. The data is that the launch day peak concurrent players of borderlands three is about twice as hi is all time peak concurrent players for borderlands two wow you guys are great. Then Sunday another tweet somehow today's concurrent players player numbers are higher than in yesterday's record breaking numbers this greatly exceeds expectations and our systems seem to be holding strong. Wow interesting wrinkle again of course because this is another one of they went to the the EPA game store and people were like not happy about that as people are often not happy about the game but you see people are playing important are you. Borderlands Person Not really yeah. I played a little bit of the first one m a second one but yeah I just didn't have enough time to jump into to share but I would be open to jumping back. Go Okay Yeah we we played all week in either. I kept up with that place Jim but it was a good time had by all of course I remember the borderland show the the show were pretty four. It's UK of course grain of salt with my opinions of liking the game but this week on YouTube dot com slash borderlands game but I'll I'll tell you what that premiere of the show Mega Wednesday is still so far away.

You can wash now kind of funny dot com slash packs tournament. There's also much games we play sonic at the Olympics Olympics the Olympics. There's also bodily harm daleks ruins the rams so if you WANNA check that check that out. Let's get you some questions so let's do this. What happened readily? What's going on? Oh something's phone is this information. I need to know okay. This information is information. You need to know what's happening or what don't tell me. I'm trying to make sure everything you know what again we understand that this is a different kind of show today. Nobody's mad. He's my twitter token. Everybody sitting there. It's done Koy. NC writes in the Patriot dot com slash kinda funny games is hey greg and Megan Iran prince. He's happy to have you on the show mega last week Greg Tim mentioned how they were were mentioned how there are quite a few big games on the horizon that snuck up on him. Star Wars jet iphone order was the example us but we have POK mon sort and Chu Siu demata warfare the our world death stranding all on the way before Christmas followed faulk quickly by Animal Crossing cyberpunk twenty seventy seven final fantasy seven remake in watchdogs three. This is an amazing lineup of games but Walter only so big and gamers only have have so much time in the day. If you're going to predict which games we're going to meet or rise above expectations in which teams are going to fall short. Which would you put your money on? Which Games do you do? You think are going to be great but won't get a chance to shine because of the stiff competition interesting question Meghan and isn't it says you see we have star wars. We have pokemon the show modern warfare. We've outer world death stranding right. I don't even WANNA get into next year. Let's just stick with that all right. Let alone animal crossing cyberpunk mobile so from from that one and I heard to say but I bet and I don't know how what they expect. There's always the thing you're working on the publisher developer. What is your expectation? How many units do you have to red cell the break even to provide? I worry that poor. They're of outer worlds yeah. I can't wait for our world. I'm playing Borland's right now. Get a funny question chocolate at my on the worlds coming up and that's the thing is going to be choice and this that and the other yeah that would be my pick too. I think that the speaking about sales wise not necessarily about if the game is going to be good enough to meet up to your expectations so these Games are great yeah if they're all great sales numbers I would say outer world might suffer the most being impact packaged in with all these big big titles around that same time and then from yeah and next year. I think watchdogs three yeah yeah I feel like cyberpunk. cyberpunk is going to get all the attention and crossing over here final fantasy. Seven People Love Insulin Yeah watchdogs lesion which I'm stoked about. I love watchdogs and I think it looks really cool. I still worry about messaging that game. You know what I mean like. There's no protagonists the protagonist whoever you wanted to yeah which is cool but it also then is going to be hard for people to connect with from a trailer because the trailer like all these different people in greenies and stuff like who are we relating to exactly exactly as a watchdogs fan boy. I'm super excited about it but we'll have to see and again. These are all assuming these are games like I'm not saying it's a quality she was much as a messaging issue and competition. Yeah stiff stiff competition there there you go. Everybody Marion said it himself. Don't buy out a world's or watch them took this is one. That's a a question that requires you to know things so at the end we put the knowing of the things we're start with Geoffrey Pilon who wrote a the patriotic dot com slash kind of funny games good Morning Greg and mega ran in practice. It's really cool to see on the show Mega. I'm sure you've seen the news about Kyuko. I'm going to say how you'd say Q. U. Q. U. C. Oh yeah Argonne kyuko being suspended from twitch for sexually suggestive content activities. Did you see this. I did okay sounded ridiculous. Let's give more I didn't. I didn't see the stream but just from the screen shot on Cacao. It doesn't seem bad at all in my humble opinion. There is nothing centralized about that outfit. I get why these guidelines are in place. We've seen egregious offenders vendors on twitch before but I don't think Kyuko is one of them. Am I just taking crazy pills year or am I missing something here. We're going to jump into the article. Cecilia wrote got it over. I'm going to just re snippets from an of course go support. Our Cuba was a small streamer who often draws pictures from her favourite gaming franchises live on twitch yesterday she he was wearing Chung lease a signature blue blue. How would I said Cuckoo cuckoo capacity and bunkers and soon after she received you've noticed a three day suspension for sexually suggestive content or activities according to an email from twitch posted to the ad features a high thigh slit that sometimes is considered risque quote? I actually bought one size up to ensure. The slit wasn't too high said Cuco in an e mails Kentucky. The slit of this dresses cut lower than some runners shorts I own the video in question has since been removed so it's difficult to tell if there was a particular moment that may have been flagged by twitch twitch did not respond to requests for comment by the time of publication sure twitch previous leases Benkoe after she calls played May Sharinau from King of fighters cue co wrote on twitter that she was banned because because of because because she was report brigade by the popular suburb at livestream fail quote I was sexually harass. She wrote in Natalie tweet. All I wore was a make is is play while I was drawing. CUCO believes this recent suspension was also due to quote a group of trolls who have been targeting me for master targeting me for mass reporting for a while. I am immediately reported because I've been branded a thought pronounced that right thought pat. She said adding that she doesn't do physical activities like squatting or dancing onstream Sudoku saw one now remove comment from livestream on livestream fail in which a user said quote L. M. A. O. saw her streaming again today. Instantly reported the thought although we weren't able confirm whether she was brigade now back to Jeffrey's email right it just blows me out to see a fan of a fan doing something that comes from a place of passion Russian and getting punished for because of mass reporters by angry Internet mobs but hey maybe she should just change your mo to streaming porno like on channel. I hear that's okay to do these days. Thanks taught thoughts Jeffrey. Thanks every it does sound like she's being attacked like it's it's happened before from from this report. She got a previous suspension for the other cost. Play right so I I don't. I don't understand twitches reasoning his the photo okay so we don't show it. If it's getting pan for we might get bad. I mean you in this of course one of the I don't WanNa say many but it's one of the things that happens right that I don't have is because I don't I don't know Cuco. Obviously you're looking at this shot that you can go down Kentucky when see right now again like what a higher Thi- I don't even think that's the issue I it does sound like the issue. Is that if she wears a costume the people mass reported it flags which things she gets band right down. There wasn't a person at twitch looking at and doing this and that's that's the the shitty thing about it where the Sig- with me stick with me everybody is that there's a flaw in the system that clearly and they need to plug but so you would say probably right that the system works I mean she got band or whatever she got at least punished for the last one when she was right but she was previously suspended it doesn't talk about the part I have here doesn't say if she was reinstated just over time or if it was because nobody somebody twitch Saad right like if right now. She has a three day suspension so maybe okay. There's a picture of this wait a minute. This is a different guy got her band. Okay Okay Okay so you don't show this one because right this is this is a little much. I mean okay. She's leased camera. It's a very low cut out. There's also there's a lot of underwear being the other king of fighters thing right yeah. I don't know yeah but I mean I don't know. This is whoever fighting fighting games daily has twitchy Makiko got banned from twitch for showing her underwear most Perot. I'm sorry frenzies most probably there isn't a response from her. Yes we can't really clarify mm-hmm yeah like I mean this is what Cecelia's article talks about as well is that twitches rules and regulations about what is sexually explicit is pretty vague yeah so it is that thing of you drowsy. You're touching the electric fence I guess in figuring out what is in it yeah and if she's been previously flagged yeah. You know you gotTa know that you're when you're on thin ice. Yeah gotta be extra and that would be the thing is like the Kentucky again a photo they have ever in the Chung outfit. You would think looking at that again as Celia Huey points and I want to give hats off to see reporting on the issue where she is very much like hey. This is what she's saying is happening. We can't verify these certain parts of it but we're telling you what it actually looks like I would say the Chung outfit doesn't cross the line or doesn't skate along the way the other after we just saw desert. We didn't see we didn't see the video we see happening. I the thing about back to it is if it is just a bunch of people trolling or whatever and getting ban I was going back system working of its it works in the way all right well this person and that sucks right now it is that there's an there's cacao article about it or if you which will lead to you hope a follow up from twitch. That's going to say hopefully yes. Yes no whatever but and it's only three days. They didn't delete her account. They like you know ban her completely hopefully they will go back through it and review it yeah exactly and that's it's what you hope happens in. Y You know again it'd be like why does real journalism and games matter because they'd fucking guess lobotomies Shit like this so it isn't just see the headline because again the first after we saw actually understand maybe why the line again are vague policy from twitch. I'M NOT GONNA sit here and be the guy who was like yes or no in terms of what's okay or not a twitch because one time I put my logo getting fucked by another logo and we got in trouble. You know what I mean. You can't show even a drawing of opinion. It's going into the Kinda funny mouth. That's I tell you freedom of sweet wasted bandwidth right saying the Patriot dot com slash kinda funny games and says important date in history the Simpson's hit and run terms sixteen today it's now old enough to get a driver's permit in the US round of applause that sixteen you can get your license.

That's hashtag the number four the letter a cloudy hello and and welcome to another episode of negative sent. I am one half of your host danny fernandes and sitting across from me if you wanna weigh how's it going anyway and you can't see but he's he's in margin bill. These are some shorts. I picked up <hes> whiles in new york <hes> at the billionaire boys club <hes>. It's the ice cream shorts and i was like oh yeah. I like it yeah and today we're joined by one of our dear friends. We've known them because if you and i were hosts at hyper p._g. Gee where we met matt. Who's also hosts there. He's a host and producer. It's awesome. Hey guys thanks for having me. I gotta say i love the modu. It looks real. Good look really good if he. I don't even know what you would call this but i am color coordinated magenta is and yeah and i'm reading your info come on uh-huh a unique low <hes> book shirt so yeah so we normally start our podcast what we're geeking out about but since we're covering pokemon and it's such a huge topic i thought we would dive right into it but i do know that when we ask for pokemon people like so many people taddeo and it made sense. I think you were supposed to come on our nintendo handle episode but you couldn't because you're also big nintendo head does like my is my forte. It's what it's literally the thing. I'm most passionate about anything. I don't know if i'd ever want to work for nintendo because i love it so much. We don't hosting for them over them like that's like about the extent of oh yeah. You have yeah yeah. That was really fun but i they're just. I know i feel i love about this. Company is that they just focus. It's just so positive if you like like all of their content and all their game is all about bringing people together and i is really latch onto that yeah so is that something i mean i assume that's how you got introduced to pokemon was from the games the games and i i was real young man i was i was in first grade when the game came out put him on reading got for christmas along the gameboy color and i just i those before the show i i think the show came came after the game is what got me hooked on. It and i just remember like that's the feeling of opening up christmas morning and you know putting you hear the dean in you know in in the deterrent and just a sense of adventure those happening and from the moment professor owed asked me like what my name was ah. The name part is. What are you a lawyer girls customization. I think our friend kyle bears the voice of professor oak. No way oh you would know because voice of adult gone. That's right yeah yeah well. He's got a great voice. He does yeah yeah. It's done so many game on that's totally him because pokemon was like kind of at least for our our generation this like smash hit and like everyone was polka crazy. You know we ended up leading to have in the movie and it just kind of took over everywhere everywhere and it was a thing that we thought would eventually go away with the nineties and it stood the anime kept running kept coming out with new versions after it seems like there's a whole new generation of polka fans yeah. I feel like what they've been doing. It's been soak gray because you know they had the games. You have extending from the games on the show comes out and it's like oh. I are we done with the game. Oh here's a new game like the pacing with releasing content is so dang good kind came out like a little bit after but kind of around the same time time and it just hasn't definitely still has its fans and it still has you know things that are coming out. <hes> i know. Did you venture well it. It hasn't latched on the same way or blown up the same way. That pokemon has yeah. I think <hes> i love john. I think what happened was to <hes> you know american american audiences at least because it came out around the same time pokemon chemo and it has a similar name a kind of like became. Oh it's a copycat of this but did you want is a complete we which is like you know. It's it and i don't think i don't think the games are nearly as good as pokemon okay yeah. They're more traditional j. r._p._g. Style kinda games yeah yeah. We'll poke more user friendly. I think yeah oh yeah well. Also you know. I feel like i've said this before. The demand anime is way more solid than the pokemon anime. Look the pokemon anime you know. There are some stands for it but i feel like you know digital had beat <hes> every time the design was cooler but thus alas pokemon is the one that i mean he's got one of the best dub theme songs ever made i will say that because you know just dude eamonn digital monsters did you or the champions ultimate monsters and we have pocket monsters monsters <hes> so let's just hop into the history of pokemon so is created by sabotage to jerry and he actually when he was growing up he had a fondness of catching catching insects and tadpoles near his home in suburban tokyo so he essentially wanted to make a game. He actually had a magazine. I don't know if he actually had a magazine kazini that he made it was a gaming one called game freak that he did with the help of ken to the maury so they did that and then went to jiri discovered the gameboy then he had this idea to to move essentially he actually was inspired by ultraman ultra seven which is a fantasy television show in in which the protagonist us giant monsters contain small capsules that sounds familiar and so when he made this new game when they made the new game they called capsule monsters but then due due to trademark issues. They ended up changing to pocket monsters. Has we know now pokemon now which is so awesome. I love that even represented in the game to kinda see like like not only is the l. catching but also like you know he liked to catch bugs in. All the podium on cancer of the trainers like i'm book catcher. Oh yeah i'm fishermen definitely shouting out those bug catchers throughout the whole thing yeah don't sleep on the bug catchers man. I know they keep popping off but yeah we're talking about you. Pop it in the first one and as you know the franchise began as pokemon red and green which was in japan but we knew it as pokemon red and blue. That's right hand. It was a pair of video games for for the original game boy that were developed by game freak and published an antidote in february which was my birthday which is probably why is able to get it in nineteen ninety six knicks making that <hes> eight years after me danny <hes> oh my gosh well well well yeah the game in japan pan and then was so popular they were able to have it come out in right else so interesting too because it was two separate games but the same game which whoa i mean now fire emblem is kind of doing that with the houses but they had fates and birthright the one before that and that is like a different energy energy to kind of capitalize on craig's because not only do you customize your character in the game the names of your pokemon but also you can have a choice of which version can you won't have and the pokemon you're able to catch yeah changes between that and there are you know as you said there were the are exclusive to each game and back then it was like a way bigger deal. Yeah i catch them. All you either needed the link cable. No one had yet or you needed both copies of the game you need a friend with rich parents who bought them every accessory for the weird reading wood reading light man so you're the rich i guess i yeah yeah man like i know it was like now it's just easier with with online and everything is so much. You'll feel like you need to get the other ones. I think if you're talking about fire emblem like elliott at least with each house. It's like different stories a little bit like you're getting different sides of it but at least like nowadays we do pok mon. You can just trade interest-rate if he's like. Oh you have an exclusive minke on your i'll go to you and we'll trade so yeah. Can you walk people through what those first games were like. Oh man so the first game well. It's what it was like. The just the overall experience yeah or like you know playing on the gameboy essentially was your goal and the the characters that you ran into i'ma. I'm a transformer so i'm going to go back into the shoes of seven-year-old matt and my experience and yet it was the first time for me that i was the one it was like my journey. It was was like matt is in this game. I named matt and you know i was going on this journey and i got to go and make new friends and allies and rivals and it was just this discovery covering growing not only with myself with my pok mon who became my friends who had named after my friends <hes> back in first grade. I'd name like oh this is patrick and this one's like steven or whatever however <hes> but it was like my party of friends that we like we grew together <hes> but at the same we're not only not only are we like trying to be the best. We're also uncovering like a mafiose feo plot going on and like fording like bad guys at the same time. <hes> you know in in the first game there's team rocket and team rocket is doing this whole thing where they're trying to new you replicate mu which is the first ancient poke mind so they created you to they did a bunch of shady stuff and you're just ten year old kid going around busting their chops and that was like real real cool so i don't know man it is. I just get so happy thinking about it and say what school to you know. It's a solid formula because it's kind of repeated in every game and there's minor tweaks here and there but you know you have your hero character. Which is you <hes>. You have the professor <hes> you always have a <hes>. What is what whether they called at. The pokemon center is it nursed joyce. Jenny's got nurse joys officer janice chan leaders and and you have the lead four and you have your team rocket or it's changed over the years you're you're antagonised gang and then of course you rival and now they've kind of added <music> buddy to take that like last pok mon yeah not the buddies. He's cute cute well. My you're my bribery him up so who's boss <hes> but you know even though in the first game like i wasn't aware i think the main weakness has made sense like fire beats grass beats water water beats fire but outside of that a lot of discovering of like oh my gosh like what it defeats rock and what does it you know and it was just this officer fighting yeah so like that for especially that first time through is just like really just figuring it out you know now now. It is funny the the types in the weaknesses because it all starts at feel like it was pretty like i can see why water would be again why fighting might defeat psychic but now we're got we got ferry right in very is a good against dragons yeah because dragons were p for a long time. They were very they're only to dryden. One was the guy you know. Lance was super bowl man. I love lands dragging elite glance just funny so cool. I wanted to punch his face. I was like you keep beating me and i'm going to end you yeah. I like talking going back and talking about like a first time through. I'm remembering every now. It's kind of subconscious that i know all these pok mon. Could they bring him back. You know the first time i every single time you pokemon. You'd be like oh my gosh. What is the i used. I used a master of all the first time on a ditto because in the show that was like oh well did he can transform into anything else. I you have to catch that ditto yeah. I was just so excited. The first time i saw i was like oh my gosh. This is so rare on never again didn't even try to weaken through my master salako and on this ditto and had when i got to mute you i was just using ultra ball's backwards and yeah but you still call me too so there you go yeah so this year so nineteen ninety-six at the games came out also saw the release of the trading card game which huge by the way it had had <hes> one hundred and two cards and was super popular. I was like the person that had all of my cards in the little card holder and then i would just like take him to school and i just like looking at. I just thought they were so pretty that with all of my anime trading cards just thought i just didn't want to give them a i totally. I'm totally with you on that though because they want anything to happen into them same for me. You weird me and my cousins. We didn't play the card game until later. We just collected cards. It was v doing. I had a set of pika chew i and it was the speaker chew toy. I think it was like the hear-no-evil-see-no-evil. I don't know it was something like that and i literally did not take it out of the box. I was that kid and i just left. I thought my patriot was so pretty and i didn't want anything to happen to it and i just left it so in the starter set where you can can where it has the window so you can see the card in there yes he. I never had that my my parents would never invest that much money into a thing. I liked so i always bought brewsters and if you aren't aware boosters don't come with energy cards. They just have other pokemon card <hes> so what that means is at had a whole bunch of pok mon yeah <hes> but no way to play him so i never was able to play the game meanwhile by best friend weldon his parents were taking him to waldon's book to compete in the polka poke among the local pokemon leagues where you would play against people and then when you would win. You'd get a badge a physical. You actually got badges. That's like a dream. Come true man yeah. They missed out on it. We still have them that. You could go to the the league is still going strong. They go live on twitch quite often yeah for the championships but that you know we'll get to this later even like watching like pro. Poke him on fight wake. It really seems like the strategy. Two one shot every poke so it's never that exciting to watch because it's like all right. This guy has the thing to one shot yeah. I'm just trail. I never got into the competitive aspect of the game like that. <hes> because of them like well. We're just going to keep you know trading in like you know returning pokemon and the ones that's going to match that type. You know but it's kind of like a gamble it's like oh. I hope he throws out this but there are crazy combos that you can't delay. There's there's moves that look like can you can. I forgot the name of this move but it would return the other other person's pokemon to the public ball and they have to throw in the next party and there's like there's combos you can do and stuff but i never got that deep into that because it was mostly just for me yeah same same. I'm here yeah y'all nine. Hundred ninety six was a huge year because after so they have the game release they have the trading card released then they have the manga released november nine hundred ninety any six and then finally this is when i really got into it finally the following year april first nineteen ninety-seven is when the anime series premiered we had pok mon traders to tashi who was later dubbed as we know as ash ketchum who's named after <unk> the creator based on red and and another character introduced in the first episode was his rival who was later garry oak based on blue carey so yeah the the anime is i mean i will be very best. Wines banded mobbing to train them is my that's so iconic. Gotta catch oh <music>. Teach me how much we can really play in turn and it's backed us play the first ten seconds okay so talk us through some of the the main characters here who team rockies so you touched on them but we didn't really talk about you know who they are. Ask the team. Rocket is a corporation that basically they're trying to take a capture strong pokemon for their own purposes <hes> and the ones that we see primarily. It's it's ran by the eighth jim leader spoiler <hes> which is giovanni <hes> and he uses normal type pok mon to fight but <hes> giovine a mob guy and like and the people that we see all the time or two people one named jesse james in the american version <hes> can't because there's no like jesse james <hes> and they have their mouth that talks. It's i'm talking documents. That's right <hes> and they're just trying to speak of june and ashes beacon. She was pretty special. It's i like to think of it as like a shiny pichu because it is very powerful and they're always trying to capture the pitcher for the boss because they're jesse james. Were there like meant to be like one of the top grunts but like they kept getting by asha now. They're kind of like fools because there's like vendetta because of that. That's why they wanna katrina like you get there. Get it yeah. That's always been funny because like bigotry was such a a whatever pokemon yeah <hes> you know you. It's cute. It's yellow. It's a mascot but <hes> yeah one of the <hes> the mottoes of team team rocket that you can see on the walls of one of their facility in the game steel pokemon for profit exploit pokemon for profit all poke him on exist for the glory ory of team rocket. They would just put that. We're bad boy in case. You're wondering who stole it we did it was two rocket. <hes> yes so i mean it feels weird like being like explained could chew who's like the you know the most famous ever but let's dive into some of the polka monceau pika choo arguably one of the most famous the mashhad iconic onic pokemon we had i can say that officially because we have detective so yeah he's the his name was on it so he is they'll go i mean they <unk> created a whole version for pichu because there's red blue and then we had yellow birch copied them <hes> anime and you're able to walk around with pitchers aside and there was a big surf mini game that i was never able to reach everyone talked about it. I could not find the surf mini game where was that with as a rule knows where i don't remember that was i was really. I don't know matt remember how i said i did. That wasn't many game. I remember playing it like nine hundred hours. He didn't get there. You know i did not unfortunately can can you describe like starter pokemon yeah and then how they level up so every game has there's three starter pokemon and the standard is fire grass and water <hes> <hes> and so in there's any for every generation poke him on their different types. You know there's literally a new generation pok mon in the original we have charm anders scored and <hes> boldizsar <hes> and those evolve <hes> you know as as you train them you get to a certain level and the gain x. p. and you can kinda like like focus that x._p. If you want to gain you know. Maybe you want this one to be like have higher speed like tel aviv training which we always kept that because that's very deep. Let's let's super deep but we we can essentially <hes> just if you're curious. Training is basically essentially hunting for specific pokemon with like these hidden didn't stack and you have to like certain like qualifiers you have to do to train each of those very very deep in the game name and yeah i remember it was explained to me and explain how to do it and i was like yeah i do and all that yeah so with your starter. You choose one and you get to name it. You know own name your best friend or just leave it as oregon something funny so it's every time you throwing it out says something funny <hes> but you as you go on your journey you battle a wild pokemon that you encounter <hes> and you battle trainers and the experience and when they at a certain amount of experience they level up <hes> when they get to certain levels the then evolve into their next forum <hes> traditionally there are three forms are to other forms that they have to <hes> so usually level stars. Usually i think it's eighteen they've evolved into the next forms like charm enderle of ultra million and they believe it's thirty two evolved to charge card but you can hold off on that if you want if you hold the button when they're about to evolve because if they they actually learn moves a little faster and gail more x._p. If they stay in that form longer so you might be a strategy to hold the b-but in love love and learn some more moves before you evolve a snap forget infocomm on yellow. If you evolved your peak at you it can no longer follow. You and i had so many friends. I was like well. You shouldn't guest and it's a walk. I'm on boba pedia which is peak achie- poke him on wikipedia. A two it is says q. is a short chubby rodent. Come on it has a small mouth descriptive they are with this one to know is that ashes pichu stays outside of his poker ball. There's probably why it's so fit because all normal tweets are really really cute and chubby so kyo just looking at it and my little girl self is like knows why i didn't take it it out of its box.

I think this is all about people's personalities you know but for me my favorite pok i have a few. I have a lot actually but my all time favorite i'll start there. My all time favorite is this <hes> <hes> giants sleeping pok mon name snore lacks yeah yeah and when you encounter in the game it's literally a roadblock in the game where you need to wake it up with an item item you collect from <hes> the lavender town cemetery tower cemetery tower color pokey fluid and then you need to play the wake it up and his cute just like our don't really know how to like a bear like a panda look like a half panda looking giant green and white bear certainly green and its stomach is white. I love it because he just wants to sleep and like just let them sleep you know and i totally get relate so much yeah yeah and he regains health with wally sleeps real cool and he has the psychology effect where he yawns. It makes other people sleepy. I dunno one of my favorites. We'd love to yes <hes> <music> any pass now. You got to chime in if he with yours all time favorite. It's always going to be toxic. Ni- croak is topped your pokemon poisonous as blades on his hand looks brolich. You know ali definitely looking but you know who set like buff cloud dude not. He's like a legendary now right. I'm talking about thunderous. Oh oh gotcha yeah. No this brought up some bad fricken d._v._r. For me he said i've typed in buff polka mine. Who am i and it's like a thick. Oh pika chew and his veto who is he. I'm glad i had you search that just for that reason oh my gosh. This is rough babe. That's amazing that it's got to be. That's that's one of the big twelve pac man. It was yeah i. I wish you could just have seen what danny was forced to see. It was like it's not going to be the footnotes like you know to stumbled on something. You're you're walking the path when you look at those walk into path okay anyway. I don't feel good it does. I can't look away. Oh i have seen the magic carp you that one the dude where like they just wear the little fish right super bath. I've seen that 'cause play. That's a character in the game isn't like a magic harp fan to fan and you could find him and he's just so weird weird. He literally wears like a magic carpet like mask. Thing would be all is a <unk>. Listen bob and you have item. That was a one of the most fun that's also like. We talked about being being excited about seeing the different pokemon but the different trainers you encounter are superfund too yeah yeah and the different gyms. You know what i love about the gyms that there. I don't know i only mention this but your all your journey you're trying to collect <hes> to you're trying to be the pokemon champion in this region so in every every every game there's different regions so that's why they're different pokemon right exactly <hes> so the first game during the region <hes> and in in this region you're you're you know in all i'm trying to get to the pokemon league an order to which is this a top four elite elite for if you will literally call the four <hes> of trainers in this region that you you have to battle in order to become the pokemon champion <hes> to get there. You need to go through different towns in fight going to gyms that are specific type gyms like a rock jam a._m. Or a water jim etc and had to fight the gym leader there and if you beat them they give you a badge that depicted you showing that you have defeated that jim leader and you're worthy to move onto the next jim and also every jim has a singular pokemon type which is very important and interesting because you can scuff if you run if you pick a book iman as their starter who is weak to the first jim <hes> for example. I think the first jim <hes> was brock doc yet which is rock <hes> and it's the week against leaf so if you pick the bulbous or you're you're going to serve that person up yep but it's <hes> it's strong wrong and water so squirrel. You're good at a strong against fire so you're gonna have a tougher time when you rock with the charm under yeah exactly man exactly so it's an in the early game. It's like what do i do. What do i do. What have you done to mabel them all but there are some really great trainers out there man the gym leaders are so cool cool like lance. He's so cool. Man you come back to land got cave. It's great atlanta was like one of the cooler designs. I'm excited about all the new new designs a two and the new the new pokemon <hes> the region. It's called the gallery and there it's essentially <hes> the u._k. Region similar it represents like the u._k. Basically so it's all like it's like like stone stone with brick in other giant windmills and it's like the countryside of the u._k. It's really cute <hes> <hes> but the leaders in this this this new game sorting she'll which is the new pokemon game coming out the in the november for the switch. The gyms are giant can't like football stadiums yeah. It's like an bet. It's like it's the first time i feel like it actually like a big big deal because i feel feel like that's kind of just finally taking the note from the anime because i feel like an anime. The gyms were such a big ordeal in the games like it was cool like you usually every jim starts off with a puzzle you figure out before you get to the gym leader so if you solve the puzzle most times you fight less trainers <music> but just fight all so. I'm like high enough level you get more x._p. For fighting trainers than wild pokemon y'all to beat them up yeah and and i just love the in this new one. You're seeing some really cool guys like there's this guy who looks like mirrow basically are like archie like he's saying he's he looks like he canadian like yeah ranger hat and stuff and <hes> he looks really cool yeah <hes> we can talk in this little counter to help us speed along the games just because <hes> but really for the so that the one other thing we're missing from pok mon that is across the game is there's usually a legendary in the first red and blue in yellow. It was the three birds zap dose multipurpose and are two now. That's right and no matter which game you had you're able to get all three as a if i remember <hes> and then it with <hes> and then after blue in yellow which was just red and blue you had pecan chew on your side. <hes> i'm trying to see what what the next runwell silver and gold silver and gold which and that was the first time they split because you had silver you can catch lucia gold you can get hojo and that was a big deal because now it's like you. When you choose use a game. You're choosing like i know for fact going with sword because i want a dog with a sword in his mouth. That's literally narrates this huge. Yeah i just a huge oklahoma vibes. You know so so that's so that's kind of been the deciding factor going forward after a red and blue blue to which game you go with. I like ho ho a lot if you have ever seen the first episode of the show ho is the is the mysterious golden bird word like the c. p. q. after he stays pika chew <hes> from a swarm of like be drills any see fly over a man. It's like the the the first sign that you know like it's such a rare sight and you could catch up you want in the second game. That's the legendary gold and great yeah so one. One big thing that little danny remembers was pokemon. The first movie had many movies but i remember the first movie which came out in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight it actually was released in japan july tenth nineteen ninety eight and then. I think we got it in nineteen. Oh yeah i was really fast. Actually november tenth nineteen ninety nine november <hes> it was really interesting so in japan it was me to new to our read that too quickly youtube strikes back which was positive in japan but for some reason for us it says that got largely negative reviews which little danny does not remember at all these are these are adults writing this who don't enjoy fun but it was apparently film critics had a lot of criticism pointed at the anti-violence message in the film about boko. That's hilarious that americans were be like. It talks too much about anti-violence. We don't like that we love violence and it ended up grossing grossing one hundred seventy two million worldwide at the box office and sold ten million home-video unit in the united states actually very much at all. That's probably because kids were streaming. You mean now. I'm trying to think of what i was using at that time livewire language another one before line wire too. I can't remember listen. I checked it out from blockbuster <hes> but yeah so we focused on the first movie. Did you watch all of the anime. I want you. I watch most of the actually i watch all the way up through. I wanna say when make him in. That would be sancho joe toe so they threw judo. I watched like a lot of man. Yeah yeah <hes> and i i love. I've watched those movies too and those are so cool because <hes> look at ketchum might be the goat because you might say the bachelor but this guy this guy. I think it's amazing trainer and he stops ruled ending like ending stuff. You know he's a savior <hes> and do you remember over in the first movie always get a card exclusive on car i would i remember that i was the first one second one that had the ancient new card but one of them you got an ancient should new card and was so cool i was so excited to get the ancient mu card and look like all like hieroglyphic and stuff like that and it was yeah awesome well. Let's ask people might say he's a bad trash is us usually don't accept it like this is how we would be if we were put into a world where there's little monsters that you can capture yes exactly actually you know what to do and you'll probably make best friends with with one that you're supposed to be using but instead you have them out like a pet dog yeah all the time <hes> and i asked about ash ketchum first off. He's ten years old y'all so i don't know how time works in this universe by. He's ten years old. He's gone through multiple. Pokemon leagues ends up a one and he's won the low lynn not it's not like they're tournament and a lola which is uh less the sun and moon series and he's like made to the finals multiple times so he's a very the trainer <hes> but ashes that he teaches us that there's more to pokemon than just fighting and you know it's about the bond and he teaches us how to how he sees a friend of the show he sees his friends who he he needs to go in order to grow and he's okay being like it's okay you go. Oh you grow you do what you have to do and like the pokemon remember that even come back. I mean he lets his first one. Let go and you know you're talking about in a way opposite of most people. I know everyone was like he's an idiot. Yeah that's true people did say that off lack for that oh yeah but even as chartered like his char- got really cocky. His chart discharge was fun because it it really was the show implementing a game mechanic and it's and it's a good opportunity to talk about something that we miss because as you noticed the link cable we talked about it. You can trade pokemon so you might be asking why don't you got a a friend who can just trade you all the best pok mon and it's because you you're pokemon also for some reason respects the authority of the gyms and so your pok mon will only pay attention to you up to a certain level based on the badges you have yeah and there is a added thing because you might be like okay well. Maybe maybe a few levels higher traded pokemon level up way faster than <hes> normally caught poke him on so you are also racing against the caught pokemon on speed so anyway in the anime chart wasn't listening to ash because he wasn't a high enough badge level exactly and he let go he'll go and and then dumb move number two but it wasn't because i got to grow and then charge that was his last evolution matt. Will he experience. You've got to find his own journey to find. You didn't have to be encapsulated in a zoo. You know <hes> maybe it was a social commentary. We'll i'm still catching them. In this world we gotta catch but tara comes back in the show charging back to ash and they kick butt together yeah. They rock came during the elite four right. If i i remember you know i was laughing because sorry i was laughing because i wall. We're talking about peak at you. I just wanted to sum up some of his the things that he's accomplished but one of them he was no. I mean he was listed. I saw that he was listed number eight on the top twenty five mae characters of all time like number eight who's number one a who the heck do you think is number one if he better be go yes you're on out here talking about how ashes dumb and they listed one of the most naive characters time you know we love because he has a big heart wake ash ketchum. It's one thing to be dumb and strong chip thrown away. Poke <unk> goku at least like he's like well about goku is that he never you know. He doesn't and change who he is. You know he's an immigrant and he doesn't change to adapt. He's like me we deal with the. I love that you know i know yeah but also that'd be <hes> if i was who i don't let my nigerian friends call me if he should khuda if yeah just touching on some more things from from p._k. To to he's appeared in the simpsons many times <hes> he's also a macy's thanksgiving day parade early loon since two thousand and one also into pika kansas the mayor rename the town own topeka chew for a day adorable he is known as japan's answer to mickey mouse <hes> <hes> and then <hes> in two thousand and three forbes ranked pitcher as eighth top earning fictional character of the year a year he was also named by time magazine in one thousand nine hundred nine the second best person of the year yeah yeah now movie and now he has a movie movie. I don't know if we wanna hop it. Do we want to hop into that. <hes> we just hop into that. I guess at right after these messages and we're back at the ron. Burgundy podcasts do baby carolina. Here is a pathological liar okay. So what does her brain look like. I normally would disagree with this but i made a pact with run earlier so yeah. Let's go with it. Wendy brush your teeth. Whenever one else does on holidays and sometimes i forget i'm not perfect smell of your breath the smell of rare steak and aged whiskey no no carolina that doesn't bother me. You're bleeding a little bit of the back of your shirt at means. It was a good waxing. They got the entire hair follicle. If you say ace i know so. How long has it been bleeding. It's been bleeding all night. Long shouldn't cheat on accent had to throw my sheets out this. This is ron burgundy until next time. Don't use public restrooms. Listen to the ron burgundy podcast on apple podcasts or on the iheartradio app or wherever you find your podcasts we're back. We're back. We're talking about pokemon before we happen in the movie. Though because this kind of lead up to the movie we have to talk about the phenomenon that was polka mongo rear. It was kind of cool because it's like so many people even even people people that don't normally play games got into. It and i think that's really cool. It came out the week and my birthday and i remember i was working at the post house <hes> as a p._a. My friend was an editor there and and like that was kind of a rough for us and then towards the end of the night he was like you wanna play a go at the santa monica pier and like yes and we went. It was like the first week we went to the santa monica pier. We put phones out and the pier was nuts but it was with everyone on their phones playing pokemon. Go l. never forget a war. Turtle schroeck showed up and everyone was like who are title and ran over to the end of the rollercoaster with awards hurdle was and it was like it was like world peace for software so yeah no it was so i remember it came out like right before comic con so member plan on it at comic con yet july twenty sixteen until like there were things that were popping up at comic con that were so cool but i just one it was funny that it tricks people exercising and they felt ah i walked nine miles today wow but also just yeah it was such a community. It was so cute to see like mom's an and teens and running around together and like going and groups and stuff and also spurred. I'm in pokemon. Go facebook group group. It would be like people would be like oh. There's one here and people would you know for safety and whatever would walk together at night all night trying to find them. The antic is a really good job of of their community building. 'cause even to this day. The pokemon go communities. It might be like it's quiet down unlike the macro but the you know if you look get it on the inside. It's it's still really well. It's funny because one thing that was <hes> wild about pokemon go. Is you know as much as people wanna be like so you wouldn't have people going to sit back and enjoy the moment you know it was creating these moments for people to interact would never interact. I remember when it first came out. I was was at the gym and lake of standing in this place fighting and then like some some kids walked up and then we didn't say <music> anything for it and then eventually we were like y'all plan poggi mongo and then we just had this conversation and it really were these kids who probably never my life would have interacted with but we had this nice experience and went about our day. I had the so many similar experiences like prayer it literally brought us together you know and it was cool as like pokemon in the real world yes like oh you're on the air stuff and augmented reality and that means like when i'm looking at my phone. It'll use the real world picture then we'll be a pok. I'm on on my phone like in the yeah the the the argument of v._r. Verses a._r. V._r. is a immersive experience that kind of close you often puts you in a specific zone on air uses the world around you to implement things. <hes> you know <hes> we we could do a whole episode. I have lots of thoughts on one versus the other <hes> yeah. I think they both can exist. I think was going to be used more as a tool in the other. One will just be retainment. I'll let you guess which one which you can also check out our v._r. We are episode. Oh yeah we did do of your. We're is extremely education. Seventy one episodes in we are going to do for episode one hundred. I think we i should do a tree of life. Live <hes> yeah <hes> detective <unk> jail yeah remember when ryan reynolds reynolds was announced as the voice of gio did and i was one of the only people that actually played the video game and i was like that's interesting <hes> by really but it was a great eight move though because he got a lot of people's attention he got like a lot of the people who don't know this game to pay attention to this is someone who didn't play what was the video game about a a similar premise of the movie <hes> the video game is about it's more of a visual novel kind of like very miniscule puzzles is not as you know strategic as professor late in but it's like got that same kind of vibe where you're going around and interviewing people but you're this character named tim goodman <hes> whose father it goes missing <hes> name henry goodman and tim <hes> <hes> all the tim knows that you know he sees pichu and this because you can talk to him and he can only talked tim <hes> they don't know why <hes> and they decide to work together to try and discover like what happened to his father by doing so they meet a couple of friends in in the game the work at g. n. n. Which is the news network and like they kind of work together to uncover not only the his the mystery of of his father but like like also of this <hes> this drug called our that is making <hes> you find out you know mixed pokemon go crazy. It's like a it's like a very joe kary like oh. We're going to put it in the balloons. Zanskar pokemon go crazy <hes> so you're working together to uncover the mysteries but in the game a bunch of micro mysteries in each chapter is a different like ooh like like got. You know who stole this or you know. Where did the missing. Where's the missing cliff area or whatever and i really enjoyed that aspect. So is it similar due to the movie in the sense that one <hes> i mean the movie's been out of long enough for spoilers but yeah the spoiler has already been set so he just going to say but we already said it. Here's what we're going to do. Okay we're gonna bleep the spoiler out and then this isn't going to be a spoiler but it's it's it's it's implied but not confirmed in the game correct. Okay yeah but that's all there. Is that the creature. If you guys see the show up and the game gives piya chew an option to do something you don't know what it was and he stays pichu. Whatever that means. I still spoiler ryan reynolds injustice smith yeah you would know from the get down and drastic world. It's it's funny because that's the second time that's happened and that <hes> i'm. I'm loving movies using that but i wonder when it's finally not gonna work but it's the <hes> the mixed family fake out. Were they present to you. A white person and the child is black and so you're not you're there being related as not on your mind and then they you find out they are and they're like oh yeah under percent like in a homecoming like that's the whole like the only like vulture for a second wasn't even on my mind being related to m._j. At all not at all and then you see it and you're like oh pay so that's a that's a fun fun feature. Now who are some of the pokemon that you like saying in the movie see there's so many and i love about this movie in particular is that people can leave that movie being like that was my favorite pok mon like at this point like each has its own distinct personality was like that i feel like that was the the obviously the push of it but every single pokemon was so unique to an audience may never see him before yeah. I thought that was awesome so for me in the movie my favorite hook him on the move is gonna be the bubble sores because they are just so precious precious and the i've never see them just like you hear the little real little like grunts and they helped they helped they helped pichu and tim and i i just i think they you did like the they're just so cute. They're so cute in that movie. My favorite thing about listening to you talk about pok mon is that you talk about them as if they're your children accused door. Will you just see dislike so proud of them. They're getting so big and strong enough to grow forget. Let me just leave me. What do you think the future pokemon is. I mean you talked about the next game. That's coming up. I mean this. This movie did <hes> ah was four hundred thirty one million worldwide the tenth highest grossing film of twenty nineteen second highest grossing video game film ad- adaptation of all time yeah <hes> <hes> that's a great question and because i feel like pokemon i mean it's always kind of it's always been so strong and i think the future of the movie was a huge a it's a huge bookmark in pok mon history because that i think what's going to happen is like the taste of here's the world and they put it in this in the city. The setting is is rhyme city eighty which is the city where pokemon and out of their poker balls and they don't. They don't battle battling his legal ryan city. I think that was a nice way to introduce to everyone what exactly pok i'm on our and what does that mean in this world <hes> and and then out of this will actually get more traditional pokemon movie. I think i need to tell y'all something that i just found a little. Danny was not wrong. Little danny was not wrong for putting all of her cards in her little collecting <hes> sleeves because mint mint condition set of pokemon card sells for over one hundred thousand dollars old. You still have it. No maybe my mom yeah. Maybe i don't now. That's a lot to go through. Go through my mom like a storage unit where i'd have to essentially like go through. Relive the trauma some of my parents divorce to like but you know. Is it worth one hundred grand. Maybe maybe i'll just go back in there. <hes> i don't know if i have them to be honest. I feel like it was something that i would have given like sold when i was in high school or something yeah holy cow. I hope you find him. Hopefully hopefully those pop up when you need it. Most well yeah good friend of mine most of them in a corner on it was gonna write the next korean. The cards all run out. No there's so many pokemon to touch on in. We didn't <hes> oh when i was a nanny a <hes> my one of the kids that i- nannied for i bought him this was back in. Let's see like would have been two thousand and five so there's even newer pokemon since them but i got him one one of those like posters. That's like all of the pokomo knife yeah. That's often the massive and you're just like framed it in his room. There's too many i think especially with the new game i think last before the new year was seven hundred forty three pok mon and now the new york even more so they hundreds. Maybe i just gave him the starter. Ones have probably that was the one fishing one <hes>. Let us know what your favorite pok. Mon is clearly can't touch all nine hundred of them too many poem on to touch on so let us know your favorites and will judge you based on that yeah. I i do have to say my favorite is always the video of the peekapoos in their costume dancing thir- so great there's so funny i love it and oh my mom was really excited sighted because she got a picture with with pichu at s._e._c. play first time well. It's not a first time he'd summer bigotry those run around. Yes midsummer yeah. No that wasn't it but that is wild. That's funny. Well wait wait. What are you talking about. I'm sure your picture okay matt. Where can everyone find you guys. You can find me at the amount also vado on everything. That's that's it. No no the administrator of course oh sweet <hes> we show where we talk about like <hes> all characters including ask on on the ultimate fictional character podcast where we pull for care from a bucket from everything manga commercials tv movies and we it's not a strength battle. It's more of like a a discussion that awesome on who is the who. We think it's the best character what makes them great. It's more of a celebration of them and we like. It's like bracket salam nascent style and we already have a winner for one so fictional character podcast podcast fun. You know me if you want to weigh on twitter and instagram i f. y. N. w. a. d.

"Hey everyone today's guest is the brilliant comedian Melissa via Senor. Who you probably know from Saturday night live? She is just amazing and I had the best time talking with her her before we begin. There's something I really want to say. And that's thank you. Thank you for listening to this podcast. Every so often I get approached by listeners and it kind of feels like we have this secret crit society. You guys are just so generous so kind and I'm really grateful. I want to read a couple of your letters. The first one is from Kate to Katie. Who called on our last episode episode with Fortune? Here it is dear Katie. Your relationship sounds so much like the one I was in for six years. The sex was nonexistent by the end. He was grumpy and uninterested interested in me it had been good at one point in the decline was gradual so it took me a long time to realize how bad it was. Don't just hold off the wedding. Get out now. You will feel an instant weight off of you and wonder why you didn't leave years ago. My current partner is so loving and affectionate and genuinely wants to be a partnership with me. He's also smoking hot. I I can't believe I put up with such a lackluster relationship. For as long as I did. Thank you so much kate. These are always incredibly difficult. Impersonal decisions and I so appreciate you caring about each other. The next letter is from Leanna. who was a caller on the show more than two years ago Leanna rights to tell us what her life has been like since we spoke? Hi Ana I just wanted to send you A quick update from when I called unqualified my partner of seven years had bought a ring and didn't proposed me for over eight months. Well we're married now and have just gotten back from our honeymoon. Going on. This show is one of our favorite stories and I just wanted to say thank you again. Leanna I love this. Thank you Liana and thank you guys so much. Thank you dear listeners. I love you and now here's Melissa visas in your Ladies and gentlemen you're listening to qualify Melissa via senior is an actress. Stand up an impressionist growing up in Whittier California. She started her stand up career at the left factory. Comedy camp at Age Sixteen her incredible talent for impersonation soon landed her as a semi finalist on season. Six of America's got talent and later as a cast member of the forty second season of Saturday. Night live her other credits. Include the animated shows. Okay okay. Oh let's be heroes and adventure time Mussa. Your gene was that good that was a prepubescent I know it was a little Ash Ketchum. I'm aware sure. Yeah that was what helped me at the time. Get Out. Just give me a little like winter in scary movies and hot shoe. The Guy was always asking questions. Actions my whole dialogue every single line. I had was like what's going on but I don't understand. But how could this happen but the way you delivered every line it always was was genius to me inadvertently because I was just like. I don't know what the fuck I'm doing here. It's so good your time everything I know. Maybe you don't see but for me as like growing. Yeah Posing Museum now. This is. That's comedy I mean when the cat like beats you up and I love it. Training sessions Russians with a puppet cat. You said something really interesting though care. What interview it was where you talked about how your vocal intonation became sort of a defensive move asked me if I know that I'd been sharing that more on stage of like how I started? Stand up at seventeen out here from here and I would go to open mics in Hollywood and like Oh. There's nothing but older men around me and I felt like I need to find something weird word to kind of make a shield so I don't feel just like Oh yeah hot girl around here so I was like well. Maybe I'll just push my voice so I kind of made. It pushed it to to be kind of weird but now it's stuck but then it kinda toned down but I remember. There are a few years in the beginning where I was trying to find out what I'm supposed to be on stage. I completely completely understand that. I'm not stand up like I hide behind character. I was a kid growing up you too and I think that most performers are. It's like okay. It can perform because I have this character that I'm supposed to do whereas standup feels defensive. And honest at the same time it is but I feel where where I'm at now. It's like twelve years of his standup. I feel like I set the stone of an honest thing whether it's my family or something and then I'll make it really really silly so then I go into some character or even my own voice onstage now as a a nice grounding but I feel comfy in my voice now yeah so when did comedy. The clock in thing is like started with my dad. He would always play like ace Ventura movies but I didn't didn't realize I'd want to be a comedian until it started doing impressions when I was thirteen. But did they laugh at you. Were they like. Oh my gosh. We have never known Hell Hill. Now how do you audition for fucking America's got talent so I realize now it was really into Queen's bubblegum pop when I was like thirteen brought Britney Spears and Christina oh I could go through all of them with if you want but I really loved them and then realize oh one. I could sing and I could do impressions. Sion's singing impressions and then I shared them with classmates Ramona convent and everyone would laugh. And that's a nice feeling. I haven't felt that before and then I just started coming out of my little shell and I did my high school talent show. I've always wanted to do a talent show. Even when I was in elementary school I remember like seeing girls sing. Selena whatever whatever songs and I would be in the crowd. I do that. I could sing and then sophomore year at Ramona. I did six impressions. Singing Impressions Ever Levin Britney Christina Ashikita. Ewan McGregor someone else did you. Even McGregor was Moulin Rouge. He Sang in that movie and he had such a good voice. And I have a I could go the two pretty deep place at my voice and it was like. He covers your song by Elton John. Ma Gifted Song or whatever. And this one's you New Della robotic this is you song he likes sang like that and I was like oh Dan but anyway so once yes I realize I could make people laugh with impressions. That's when I was like I'm going to be a comedian. I got very determined and did the laugh factory comedy camp that summer. I didn't care about highschool anywhere else. I like great. No they still were like well. This'll phase out. This is cute. I guess and then after high school I started doing open mics and went to the hawk. CAFE FA laugh factory all of them and they didn't believe in me. Now I was going to Fullerton junior college just to please but I didn't show up and classes like I just WanNa do stand tip. You know one time. You're at a comedy star open mic on Monday night and you're sitting in the front and no one was even there. I was like what the she's coming to see open mic comics comics. Yeah I perform in front of you when I was like twenty or twenty one loved that I think I made you laugh on blessing. It was really cool. I remember like I like to laugh. Melissa cool that is Jim Nice compliment. Yeah that's true all the comics like they're freezing if you try and but I think you should be so cool. I don't know if I could do it. I don't I don't know yeah. I don't know how you guys do it. It gets better. It's cool and then get to a place from like boy. I can't ever stock like if I go few weeks without being on stage I feel are missing something but there is a the other thinking yellow and that's when I know I'm Maria getting tough on myself come up with new stuff when really it could just be like. Oh I come up with something that recently. I was like when I said my parents house. I forgot my toothbrush and my dad. Just it's like grabbed that's been used. It's like no it's brand new gear liar but it's just like it's just WanNa talk anything. Ah Okay now. You've talked before about your favorite impressions but do you have like a secret favorite. My favorite one I think right now is stupid shammy. The voice isn't perfect but like making his facial expressions. I have a bit about why I love me so much by. He just goes with the flow of life all his characters actors. This is it. I guess we'll do that and I was like damn. I just love that to this news. I Have Ed Donahue is doing for their face right now. She's like backing away from camera. She's taking it all in. She's like arching her eyebrows but not really net without like a ton of investment. It's amazing yeah. It's my favorite bit too. Because it just makes me feel good embody Bush Emmy and my soul and my heart when people make me feel bad for not living up to society's rules like when people say why would you agree hair grown your banks. I'll go sometimes want to look like a skunk and then my my mom if she's looks at me and says hey take care of your mustache. It's growing in. I'll say like fine. I'll come it. Will you help me with my. Hi Gwen Stefani. Oh Yeah I've never done this out. Don't speak a no just being this thing. Help me help me help. Help me please. My answer machine is really down. Speeds pig would juicy pleased up. This blend Donald Hoods no no salutes. Big Chill schedule reasons. Because uh-huh oh my God that's okay. That was one of them. Oh that's one of the impression I did. Yeah no Gwen Stafani man. That's my yeah. You're right because she it's like this void sexiest cold. Yeah that's what it is like. Tam How does somebody get a super fucking sexy cold domes week the underneath to love but I also like the old like their first album. No doubts I sell more. She was like that scarlet shoes. She had love you. Data Open the total hate with sublime is so good but didn't hit the frustrate like any guy at a crush on. It was like he was in love with Gwen Stefani. You know I was just like she took it she she took it all. But it's so crazy. How before there was no one like her to come up with something? So like this is you. That's weird amazing amazing but did you. You have like posters on your wall growing up. No why no see I wanted to but my mom was so strict. My mom was Ju- she was like you're not going to be fan girl. You were put my Gwen Stefani poster in my closet on the door so facing my clothes I had to listen to Whitney Houston like in private Cindy lauper Berg in private school no just went to the public school down the street but yeah but strict folks. My Room was all pink which I don't mind. I now have a pink room Wehrley. WHOA but as a kid who is so fancy my comforter? You know my mom was like I paid a lot of money for that comforter. So don't lay on it during the day so I had to take my naps on the floor. So then if you have ah crash on a guy you couldn't tell her oh like Lance Bass. Yeah that was my crush. No she well knew but she made me put all all the posters under my bed in it tupperware. WHO's making a proud daughter? And she will not lose her virginity until she's thirty seven. She well my parents were pretty pretty strict. Like I didn't have a bird's be talk my mom the only time she was like. You're not doing that stuff and I was like no no and that was it but then where you kind of do not in high high school I really felt like I didn't know enough to so you didn't go to any case or anything. Oh and then every year that feels I think whittier definitely had some good so my the school. I went to Ramona convent. All Girls School got now Hambro so all my friends from the school were for over there. And that's like forty minute drive but I was really at home lodge. That's why I felt like finding impressions and SNL like in high school felt. Oh well well this is my thing now. Did you didn't go out a lot. Would you describe yourself as kind of a lonely kid. Yeah I think so even though I felt like my siblings are I'm real close close to them but in terms of school stuff like singing about it the other day I didn't have anyone just called up and like chatted about the day our boys I didn't have anything like that. I felt it was weird. If someone called my house was like or do you want. I don't just sit here in Chad. I didn't have that. I think there's a total correlation between loneliness and then like adolescence. There's no way you could be normal human if you didn't feel we're all weird. Can we talk a little bit about. SNL Yeah I'd love to so you've been on on the show for three four years four season so I I've hosted twice and I say this with a lot of hesitancy took ten years off of my life I just I was so terrified. Greeley Oh yeah. Do you feel that. I'm surprised that I could handle it. I mean my body goes through a lot of weird stuff from mm that schedule and not getting like was that Oak. Yeah that's that's the thing no one will say like. Oh that's good or that's not working. I mean it's really really just you have to go there which is difficult for a needy person like myself like I wanna know like did that work in if it doesn't work them what can I do to change it and Hardaway. How do I negotiate these waters and trying to cling onto a cast member? Please you can back off. It's all right. There was some crafty after you down there or whatever just like oh but because I know that the cast they do the heavy lifting. How does that process? Where because as a host I was just like in and out and somebody was awfully me to a room that nobody was in and it felt like Would agree of collaboration. Is there for amazed because I came from San Antonio come from scattering so this show is always. The first year was really hard because I was like. I don't honor right sketch. What the hell am I doing here? Though because you have to really not array array. But now I've gotten a group of first of all. I have friends now that I liked to write with and that laugh with me one writing I try to always have to ideas and I kinda tackle Michael Down a writer that works for the sketch that will be like. Oh He'd be a good one to write that with her she'd be and it would be great right. Jaylo idea the hoop earring. Once you know like there's there's certain people that have their strengths of what they're good at. I had that little kid one from I was watching those kids geniuses on Ellen and I was like boy they're pissing me off and I was like I just WanNa replay when those little kids in the periodic table it it Galileo is. That's that's what he convicted and there was like. I don't like that kid. I just kind of like exaggerated to what I wanted to watch at least twenty times. This is girl who who the dirty time law. No law and order. Oh yeah that's drizzles character. Yeah good man. Those are favourites of love that I know of that so it was like it was just brilliant. It was it was a good one. I love that one okay. You don't have to tell. Listen if you are single. I am Okay and you know what I'm Lovin it. Okay here are some dealbreakers okay. On the second date he tells you his sex's pregnant. Oh I'm gone really. Oh actually no no. I don't mean to challenge. You think it's perfectly valid. I mean it's a lot I don't want to hear that I don't WanNa hear it. Yeah all right okay okay. He says he only likes TEX because his face is more handsome than his voice so he doesn't want to talk on the phone. Then I'm gone. I need to hear the voices. You need you. The voice guess okay. I've showed up on dates. Where guys villa? Oh my God. You're so great and then unlikely Mike World it this is not gonNa Work Voice Lady. Yeah you're a I think voice is really important I do is I also think with mine like there's been times I've if it's like a instagram I'll slide into guys. DM's I'll tech some of. I like the voice message. Text do you ever use the microphone. Nobody you did it with Michael Sherman. Oh yeah because so I just one safer on driving and also. I like that people can hear my election totally know that no my thought. I've been mad at many times when of course I haven't it's just like I don't. I'm not using the EMOJIS. I don't really know a guy like just general vibe. And what's their humor more when they speak. You know mines filled with that color of like you know Luna these silly okay. Every relationship he's had has ended with him getting cheated on. I don't think that's a deal breaker. I feel empathy for that though. That's a turnoff. He got cheated on. Yeah the reason why it like this one is because it is Kinda challenging. Because I don't think it's a reason to not be with somebody at all. Of course like we've all been cheated on his Co. but is he mopey with is he presented himself as a victim I'd give him a chance. I'd like to hear about that. What you want in a man I want rent a funny guy that I think is cute? Doesn't have to be Mr Hyde. I actually it would be a plus but I think just attracted to funny the loves to hang out with my family. Just want someone that feels like like a home like how I feel like with my family. Were joking around and haven't had that yet where it's just like. Oh Evan Evans. Yeah I don't think I ever I don't think so. We really have been. I don't know I don't know to be honest. I don't know well. It's been so long since I've even when hen relationships the first hard crash that you had in person like a dream I had a boyfriend when I was like twenty twenty one and I thought thought he was really sweet and cute. I liked him. So you guys were in college and that was at the comedy store. A comedian did a lot of COMEDIANS. I don't mind saying that I like funny guys. I've gone on on dates with snoops fists and I'm bored. I'm the only one laughing. It's very I think just looking at you. I'll just spilling it. That's fine nine. Yeah you totally were on me. I actually made a list like Whitney coming. Sit In her book. There's a lot of things the top five things be. I mean funny. Not Funny is all over the place and I'm real picky though. I guess you're right. I don't like a force boy. Do I ate a force funny so tell me though who would be your dream person than I mean I've had crushes on like oh I would love Donald Glover I would love Havi are barred them. Yeah it gets you can make it happen. Farris let what's dating like well for me. I'm not on any APPS. I'm I'm not seeking out a relationship just because I I did realize I have a lot of love and I'm very happy with everything in my life and grateful. I don't feel like there's was anything lacking I only feel that when someone kind of pins me and says like what's going on any guy or any relationship or a family members like any boyfriend and then I feel kind of bad but then I'm like actually feel full. Do you feel in your family to not so much now. My parents are awesome. They're like on board like she's a rock star comedian. Fuck yeah she is but yeah I feel feel good and I just feel again. The flow of things creatively and Cillian. I sometimes don't want anyone to mess with that. Yeah and I know there's a certain guy that has that poll of or I get anxious attachment. Then everything gets pushed aside because it's all about him and then that's where I get scared. So so I'm I'm actually kind of Nice. Don't mess with that right now. It's really wise. Yeah Yeah I want to say. I'm not closed off to love. I WANNA laugh with someone and share but but I. I don't know when that timing is yeah yeah.

Okay I feel like you would brought my retainers Tanner's now don't touch him. Of course you can hold the box I had my mom pay extra for the Rainbow retainers. They wanted just a classic. But if you had options they were like yeah you can also get rainbow or stars. But that's extra and I was like well I'm GONNA do Rainbow. Just don't you know just slip added to my mom's payment use we use to pretend my retainer could talk and was excellent at math and I wasn't and so I would sit in front of the Bathroom Mirror and I and my retainer. Would you know pretend that my retainer talk we on talk shows okay. I'm the world's like I'm the only person who is the world's it's only talking retainer and together we're just we're gonNA take on math or whatever I love it beloved you brought your retainer. I use I had the also the headgear that wrapped and then that it was like at cushion in the sweat would go. And then I would smell we're Out retainer in each other you or your school and then Lacy Newman was like. Oh I hate Lewis Lacey. Lacey was cheap. She May. I don't know I don't know I wish I know she was like Headq- girl leader. You could have just taken off and then it comes back from where I need to be. Good Pal I was always wandering in high school. I didn't have like a group to sit with. I was just like Melissa. Comedian this this free Gal and I would sit around with all the different clicks and I was just like. I'm just going to be funny and I loved that I had that like little special I was like embracing that hape more. Yeah okay so we're about to call people yes we're going to call Dina. Yeah now Dana. Hi It's on affairs and Melissa View Senior High Guys. We tell US Dana. What's going on? Yeah Yeah so me and my boyfriend had been together for about eight years and he started doing this traveling job for the last three years and he travels a lot he mostly works on the East Coast and he can be gone anywhere from like three days to up to three weeks. That's happened before many usually only come home for like about four days at a time. Sometimes stints where. It's a little bit longer but I mean it just flies by off to his next job again and and to me he's always been a problem in our relationship ship like I always wanted to get intimate and he'd never really does especially with this new traveling John where I'm alone all the time? I have been feeling very unwanted lately and we've had talks about it. You Know I. It was like his anxiety and he wanted to go to a doctor. Now it's he thinks testosterone bat is The problem But he hasn't actually done anything to fix that and I told him my K- my doctors taking patients but you know when he gets home he doesn't really want to do anything responsible. which I understand and and you know we don't get anywhere with that so being you guys probably trouble and maybe I can get a perspective? Maybe I'm being an asshole and you. Yeah no no. I will say we get so many calls about women that have a higher Libido uh-huh than their boyfriends or men or whatever and how it makes them feel bad because we're socialized to be like. Oh yeah the Manche be wanting us all the time. So have you been able to have a pretty frank discussion with him when I had talked with him when he was like. Well I WANNA go to doctor and check check this stuff. I'm like well you know I've heard all this before. This isn't the sex life I want any kind of went off the rails and said I was being insensitive to his condition. I'm like well you never really been to the Doctor Dr. So how do you even know what your condition is. I mean he's a wonderful man. I love him to death. Nobody understands me like he does the hard worker he takes care of the house like we could almost have it all. If it weren't for this one one little thing which is turning into a big thing. Yeah that actually makes so much sense because I do think that when we have high sex drives it is complicating for men. I do and I think most women do so. If there's any rejection element feels like okay. What did we do wrong? Or uh-huh might not sexy enough but I wonder how you guys get close again. But it shouldn't be your responsibility. It should be him. What do you think Alissa? Well I don't have a lot of experience with a long relationship but I I've dated one dude. I had a boyfriend last year and he had trouble getting intimate. And I I feel for you because I felt unwanted and not sexy and I just felt bad and I didn't know what to do but ultimately it wasn't a long thing but I could really sting. Yeah Yeah I think you should both try to work on this. I think I don't know that's all I can say I. I really don't know what else to offer but yeah I don't know either the Melissa. I do think that you just said is something that most everybody can relate to the being the student we had everything anything laugh sense of humor. I mean we got a long and the one thing was he had trouble with you know and I was fired up. I'm ready to go. You know but he just couldn't Do you guys talk a lot on the road. They get little Never tried anything like that. We talk every day. I mean we face time when he's gone and all that but never reached out that way there has to be a reach out with a partnership if we are going to describe our relationships as partnerships ownerships. Then that's what they should be should be a two way street. Yeah I mean it's always one way with me. It's always me initiating. I think last time I had basically drug him to the bedroom. Like nope. We're doing this but then it just feels like an obligation right. Do they have a slaw where you are at sex love addicts meetings. I'm not suggesting that it's just a really nice supportive group here. I don't know if there's one in L. A. New York then you go online to and I love the women's meetings the gather in everyone's share or stuff and it's pretty helpful. It's really good. I haven't gone in a bit but I went like while I was Dana. Do last year a lot because I felt a love addict type of person Dan and fantasy addiction. So it's nice to be a part of haven't looked into that. Yeah they'll have a bunch of meetings located around every day Dana Dana. You know what I think the big thing might be to ask people you trust in your life but only one or two like if you trust your mom or you trust trust your sister you trust your best friend but also do you see your boyfriend. A newly having a long future like yeah we were actually engaged at one point and then and we took a year off and got back together so I told him like when we got back together like Oh this is it. We're not dating anybody else after this when was sixteen is when we took our break. Do you guys still feel the same way Tina. I wonder if you've moved away a little bit I wonder sometimes you know. Do you want to marry him. And you feel He has to take care of some things before we get married. So you know after that I'll say yes but like what do you my masking asking credit stuff like that. I don't think Gotcha. Gotcha I think the biggest thing is. Are you guys happy. Are you happy. Yeah yeah this is one thing.

Pokemon: The Movie 2000 (The Power of One)

"Everyone has a dream that fills their heart a journey. They must take a destiny to kill as close as imagination exists. Magical place when wondrous creatures with incredible powers help make dreams come true. It's the world. Welcome to now playing Pokemon retrospective series. You ever see a double? We're on the big screen part of now playing video game movie review series. Not that the game. Hosted by Arnie your dictum to caffeine. I could stop whenever I want. These are just choices another round extra shot. His. Thank you, sweetie. Justin. Ed Stewart, then this is just one more challenge. They follow their hearts that what set them apart and will make them talk. My master. This podcast may contain detail. Lots boilers and mild language. This is what a French Lynnwood, call caveat fees. Listener discretion is advised. We're going to do this. Jets. Today, we're discussing Pokemon the movie two thousand aka the power of one aka revelation, the ouija, aka marash, Pok mind, Louise's, explosive bird. It's my favorite one. Yeah. I like that. Low very. Starring Veronica Taylor, QE Otani. Rachel lillies directed by Kunihiko JABA. This is Arnie s your mythical podcast mon- host pickup pickets to wondering what I won't do for Pika chew. And this is Justin still trying to figure out who thought it was. Okay. No matter what culture to market something called pocket monsters at children. I can't believe I didn't even realize what pokey want stood for before this retrospective. I was like, oh, that's what that means. Puckett? My why do they put the hyphen over the ego? Oh, well, they're Japanese. I'll just chalk it all up to that. But welcome to an era of the world where everything was better. If it ended in two thousand windows, two thousand office two thousand movies two thousand the chronic two thousand and deed, and this is really where it kicks in. We're seeing the multimedia empire. Like, all right. We're gonna have a game out one year. We're gonna have a new season of the TV series. And we're going to have a movie repeat nineteen more times until we catch up to present day. This thing is a factory. It's amazing. How consistently they put out product for their audience that's hungry for it that never tires of it. Yeah. While it may be a factory, though, Pok Mon golden. Silver for the GameBoy color which were coming out around this time game freak intended that to be the end of the Pokemon franchise. It was like we've done all we can do gold and silver and crystal for the special edition for the color. We're done. Wait. How many units did it sell? Okay. We'll keep doing. Yeah. Slapped. Slapped. Have you know, we kinda already talked about the Game Boy games. And you've done a good job explaining it to me, I think with each consecutive Pokemon show. We're going to look at a different style of game. I think this time we really need to look at the phenomenon that came eight months after the first video games the trading cards. Oh boy. I'll never forget Christmas nineteen ninety nine. It was the year. I started to realize that my nieces and nephews one half of them were really good. But the other half were really brats. And you guys remember mortal combat how I had to go beat the certain few bat. I very call. Well, it's Christmas Eve. That's when we'd have the family Christmas because all maze sisters had their own kids at that point. And so they'd then retreat to their own homes for Santa to come that night and have their own Christmas morning, so Christmas Eve, and I just wasn't feeling christmasy that year, we stopped buying gifts for each other. When we're doing this that secret Santa. Put a gift in and you could steal it three times. I bought one hundred dollars best buy gift card and yet. It was the best thing in there. So I walked out with my hundred dollar gift card. By myself, a gift, well, you know, somebody stole it. And then I stole it from them. And I'm like, I'm keeping my gift card. I don't want. No photo albums of us. But it gets to my nephews and this year they were way into the Pokemon card game. And this is when it was all over the news. There was a card selling for one hundred thousand dollars. There's one card like thirteen were printed. And nobody knows how many are left, and it's one hundred thousand dollar card as so everybody was going crazy for the Pokemon cards and for Christmas Eve. That's what my sister got her children, one of whom was the one I had to play in mortal Kombat, and when you had to beat his ass. Yes. I had to teach him a lesson in mortal Kombat, apparently that lesson he learned was not how to share he was eight and he had a little brother who was six and that little brother opened up the Pokemon guards. And I don't know which one it was, but he had like some super rare card and. The eight year old bald just couldn't stop crying because his younger brother had a better car than he did as so my sister in an active who surprised parenting took it away from the six year old allowing the six year olds the ball and gave it to the eight year. So the eight year old was now happy and the six year old was crying, all the way home. That is all I do about the Pokemon card game until recently, guess became aces card sharps. We were awesome. I've never done this before. And I don't recommend it. But went decided to learn the game in about forty minutes. And then inner ourselves into a tournament of lifelong players it just so happened Marjorie stumbled upon a gaming store here in town and text me from it. Hey, there's a Pok Mon turnament next Sunday Super Bowl Sunday. You guys could come and learn the Pokemon cards and sixty dollars to enter and I'm like, sixty bucks, no way. But let me just. I'll as a goof tell Stuart about it. Stewart we go sped sixty dollars Ezra poking menteur nement. I really thought we'd be talking about this show is on Amazon. I bought something called the Pok Mon trainer, which that everything you need to learn to play Pokemon. I'm like, we'll just learn to play it. And then we'll talk about the guard game. Suddenly Stewart's calling my bluff we'll go. And then it turned out. It was not on Super Bowl Sunday. It was Saturday, which makes a lot more sense only twenty five dollars. So now we've decided to go within three hours of registration for the tournament. I'm in the shower getting ready while YouTube videos, play outside the shower on an ipad as I'm trying to cram rules into my head like powers and level ups and Volusia and hit points. Yeah. It would be like, hey, my baby learned a walk. I'm entering it into a marathon. I mean, I just want to color the idea here. Never to this moment. Still not played any of the games had seen one episode of the show. So had vague 'understanding. Never played a card game other than like, a Hoyle deck, like magic gathering didn't know anything about any of it. Thirty minutes of trying to understand the rules and then driving to the store to enter a tournament. Because this is like the biggest loser version of rounders. And I learned I mean, obviously, I didn't do. Well. But I did learn a lot about I think how the game might work. It seems like they're pretty similar is that fair to say the cards and the way you throw down are similar to the way. You would if you have the GameBoy. It's really interesting how they did. Adapt it now, my understanding I've never played magic the gathering. But I found a lot of similarities between this an a marvel card game. I've been playing lately from upper debt called versus and it appears from what I can tell that it all comes back to magic the gathering, and they're all just various ripoffs of that rule system. But with Pok Mon what got me was how they had the same things as in the game. Like, you could carry six Pokemon one at a time the rest, you couldn't and you did an attack and the attack may work the attack may fail, and you can up your defensive everything, but the car game adds a level of randomness because you have to shuffle your deck, and you. Know what you're getting also in the GameBoy game. It's interesting because you can only attack so many times like you get twenty five times that you can do a tackle. Then you gotta get back to a pokey center and recharge so you can tackle twenty five more time. Okay. The way they've done this in the card game is by having energy cards. You get it energy card, and you give it to your poke human. And then you spend the energy card to do the power. And I found that all really interesting, and we're get there to this gaming shop where it's literally every stereotypical gaming. I mean, you just there was the bald guy with the ponytail. There was the dumpy girl with the curly hair. There was the guy who still had eighties metal hair, you know, in dazed and confused. Matthew mcconnahey said I keep getting older they keep staying the same age. Well, here we all got older. But what I'll say is the names changed, but the people stayed the same. These are the exact same people. I saw a gaming store when I used to hang out in the nineties. It's just I didn't know any of them. But there was still ponytail guy. That was still token girl. There was still one African American. There were still one child. It was just and they were all there eating pizza and burgers and ready for Pokemon when we walk in. And they're so happy to have us that we couldn't bring ourselves to say we were on a sociological expedition there like we do this every Thursday, I'm going to invite you to like our Facebook group. That's good to hear that could have gone one of two ways. You guys have been the assholes you were crashing their little private event or they could have embraced you. And it sounds like they did they were very polite. I don't know that they wanted me to come back next Thursday Arnie, I had it was pretty obvious within seconds. I couldn't open two packs like like, all right. So here's the set. We're gonna give you thirty minutes to stack your decks. I'm sitting there pulling at the ma- my lar-, I'm going to either have to rip it open with my teeth or like disappear into the bathroom. Like, I can't. Even open the decks because it's not that you bring your own. We couldn't have played. If it was bring out your treasure trove, pokey cards collected for thirty years. That's what the entry cost really was for. Everyone's getting six packs sight unseen, good luck, opening them. And then yes, you have to organize them into a stack of forty that will be your arsenal as you face off time and again for what five rounds four rounds. It was four rounds. It was endless defeat for me. I can tell you that. I did feel kind of like your father as I reach over like Stewart. I'll open your hearts. It's very very, yes. Humiliated. Did you cut us pizza into bite size pieces? I really needed that people were like are you brothers? They were questions about what was going on there. And why someone to didn't look like they were having a lot of fun might be subjecting themselves to such abject humiliation. Okay. I just figured they thought you were my boyfriend, and I brought you. So they thought we were brother who's okay, I'll go with that was where they said to me. But yet I got a lot of scans look, but they were very I mean, I I want to emphasize at no time did they make me feel lesser. I just continued to live down to the worst expectations of a new player. Again, only vaguely knew the rules, and one of the one things I learned about playing this game is only mentioned it's all about power. The first time. I went up against a player. I had a Decca forty with three power. What that means basically is it's like the ending of the last movie. I put my Pika chew out there and the other Pika chew slaps me on there. And I'd stand there and say, please, sir. Can I have another until I am Dead Sea. Whatever was Stewart was very into his cards. I was hanging on every word of everyone around me because I know I'm going inside on and I've been in a couple of gen con game tournaments. I know how bad this can go as so I'm listening. They're like Heure cards of energy come up and get as many as you want. And I actually get a pretty tough card, and I show it to this guy there who tried to sell me like illicit cards. He's like if you need any Pok, Mon you talked to me, I got every card you want it. You don't want to buy from the store. Meanwhile, behind the counter the owners like I banned people from the store for selling things in here because I don't get any money. I could barely make the rent and this guy, here's got all the cartoon one. I'm gonna save you a lot of money. You just talk to me. I got whatever. Approach me Arnie magin that. This guy's looking at Stewart's Dak and being leg. Okay. Okay. Okay. Finally, this guy is just like let me show you what to do. And these are maybe the characters you might wanna fixate on. I didn't understand I could go and get power to make them fight. So I could literally do nothing, but watch this ten year old child beat me to a pulp round after round with no ability to do anything. I meanwhile, put fifty percent power in my deck. I've sitting across from somebody that I'm like this is my first time playing. This guy's a hard core player at he's like can you roll your further please that wasn't random enough. We're in a small cramped area. There's like three games going on per table. I don't wanna shoot it like, it's craps. So I'm trying to just be polite. And he's like could you roll it further? And then the guy who tried to sell his cards on the DL gave us card protectors said he's giving back to me again. Well, I'm not gonna like put the cards at a protector of the spend the time taking them all back out. So I just by some cheap. Actors. So that I don't offend anybody. Started the game I didn't have time to put them all in this guy across from me things, I'm cheating. Why are some of your cards and protectors and some not I'm like because I'm out of time saying, well, you shouldn't do that. I'm like, I'm not cheating I plan to badly. Cheaters. My exact words were I don't care about Pok Mon enough to screw my karma by cheating at it. Records scratch. No surprise you. We're not asked to leave. I won my first game ever. That's right. This guy. I yeah. And I was glad he was a little bit of what he was polite too. But yeah, there was a little bit about. Yeah. You're not rolling it correctly that he came at me later with lots of advice unsolicited, then round two I was playing against the guy who offered to sell cards on the deal. I got my bass handed to me. The second round was interesting were kind enough to say, okay, go and get some energy because you can't spend all day just being brutalized. They let you cheat. This was an official Pokemon ornament. Yeah. I know. I mean this at the Pokemon software determining the matches and everything this was a regulation tournament for ranking is a national Pokemon league. And they feel so bad for Stewart. They let him cheeks. I mean, I had reveal who I was the next thing. I learned was not all of these characters fight. Like, I was like okay now, I got power. I get the black faced Pokemon. Remember, I mentioned that last time with the controversies. I'm like, oh, he's cool. And he could with little bit of power. He can do his thing. He can't hurt them. Powers to make them dance. So literally denote sky all I could do keep making them dizzy. I get hit points on any of them. So like now, I'm a black face. They turn them into purple bass. But I'm a black face dancing around after having one round of completely following on the mat? Now, they're just getting dizzy, the go up against the ten year old you're playing this kid had a remarkable resemblance to Arnold drum it. Yeah. I get there. And I think this kid cheats because I get there. He's got all his cards laid out. Now, I know from the stickler from around one I'm supposed to be able to cut. His dad was seem shuffle his deck. He's there. Everything's out. I'm like, I don't think I feel good about this. And so I actually like ref. He didn't shuffle in front of me. So I force them to shuffle. And I cut the cards. I'm the only person who beat him that whole day. But I'm the only person who was a big dick to say I need to see you shuffle. I think the reason he everybody else that kid sheets. Yeah. You know, it's a ten year old. So he's got that going for him. Nobody wants to like get to bid out of shape that he might be, you know, counting cards or whatever the hell you're doing to cheat at Pokemon. I finally did get around where I did do damage by the third round. I was getting a group. I was at least holding my own, but it didn't really change another thing. These deck sometimes have these super cards have this shining. Holographic quality. It means. They have two hundred hit points. So yeah, you can go in there. And. Do thirty points of damage. They're still going to kill you long before they're ever going to die. And so it was my ass handed to me every round I came in dead last from the competition. No one asked me back. But no one was rude either you won one game because there was an odd number of people the computer decides who sits out just gets automatic win. And Stewart was after two rounds the like, well, it's obviously this guy who sits out. Yeah. I won the round where I played against no one. I two into which I think is pretty respectable for having never played before an invited back many many times. And I felt that here's what I'll say the card game was actually fun. I enjoyed playing it based upon the rules. But the fact that it was a gigli poff, and Pokemon and clean fairy. And all that is relevant. It was this card hurts you. I enjoy hurting you in a game. So we're going to play and I have fun strategizing. The reason. I'm not playing anymore is I have enough money sucking hobbies that I don't need to choose to get addicted to a blind packaged game where I have to spend hundreds of dollars on cards and hope I have good enough ones to win. Well, let's talk about that. Because this is a nice way to segue into my pokey controversy for this episode all the problems that stem from this card game, largely it was a class action lawsuit that parents eventually got very tired of seeing their kids shoplift and literally get into physical altercations and lie and cheat to get these rare cards is it gambling. That is what they came at Nintendo and said their lawyer insisted Pokemon cards have all the elements of gambling game. Which of course, minors cannot participate in gambling and any state in this country. There's a price for you to enter in play. There's an element of risk, and there's a potential payoff because you can get these rare cards you can turn around and sell for fifty one hundred thousands of dollars. I will say after having played this game. It does not feel like a casino. It does not feel like you're rolling roulette wheel. And seeing what happens their strategy. You're playing a game. It does involve skill and you can play with the cards that you're handed with. But if you were not going to play the way, we did which is everyone opened six new packs, but bring the ones you had the only way to truly win that is to have invested again Packer, what five eight dollars each you're going to have to spend what these kids were doing two thousand three thousand dollars in order to be competitive. Is that gambling? I don't know, but it is morally questionable the courts threw it out saying that it's not gambling because you can't lose anything. What's happening is you're purchasing cards. You are paying for cards. There's no chance to open the deck, and you're not getting cards the chances you might get a car better than others. But that's not gambling. That's like saying that in Charlie and the chocolate factory. The magic ticket inside the candy bars was gambling because you'd buy a candy bar and hope there's a magic ticket inside. No, you're paying for the candy bar here. You're paying for the cards. The court said absolutely not they were suing under Rico statutes, which is specifically mafia organization and the courts are like, no, no, you're idiots. Go home stopped wasting our time. But you know, what there is an addictive quality to anything. And yes, it is truly if I could just go on Thursdays and play Pokemon and not spend more than twenty five dollars a session. I might do that as something to do. But I not going to because it's not twenty five dollars a session. It becomes hundreds and thousands. And I can just play other games that are cheaper the ultimate the problem is I would enjoy playing this game. If it didn't require me to make it an investment. But that is what it is. And if I were a child trying to play it, it would be very frustrating. Apparently, I did get a good car. There was one guy. No one asked me to. Come back and play, but someone did want this rare card that I did get in all of my stacks of useless non-fighting dancing on and no power cards. I barely did have one cool Ray card that he was willing to offer thirty bucks four. So it must have been something. Good. That's too much. That's too much for a kids game for sure. And to rich for my blood for anything. I just don't have that kind of money to throw. I don't do poker nights. Because I don't like losing hundreds of dollars in an evening. It's just not fun. What's funny to me is with me? They're like that guy. Trying to sell me like, you know, we'll have to trade, wink wing. We've you know, you're not come about. Here's thirty. It was pretty obvious. Yeah. I mean, I'm glad they didn't come down on the fact that they taught that was gambling because you know, it's no different than baseball cards. If we're going to teach kids that collecting is. Okay. But once it gets to a certain point, then that's bad because it's gambling than I think just comes down to his that lazy parenting. You don't wanna keep an eye on? What your kids are doing keep in mind? This was the nineties I feel like everybody getting a rare card was the Pokemon version of participation trophies. Yeah. I don't know much about the cards. I just remember Tyler in his room. Had a few select ones with holographic stickers in the corner that he had propped up in a pokey ball display, and I couldn't even tell you. What was on them? But I'm guessing that at least some sentimental value to him. Well, if he had one of the illustrator cars, I mentioned there was a real rare card last time the illustrator card is the rarest of all cards thirty nine we're distributed. What's funny is it doesn't even help you in the game? It is zero value for playing and yet it sells on EBay for one hundred thousand dollars. Fi has that one. I'm gonna call him. He's going to college. The only other controversy I could find specifically about the card game was that some of them were printed with swastikas, and that was just a cultural misstep because in Asia India specifically that is a sign of good luck that symbol has lived on longer than the Third Reich and it had different connotations, although the jeopardy's participated with third rag. I mean, I don't think they wouldn't know what was in modern understanding, but there were Pokemon with swastikas symbols. And they did have to go back and reprint those deck. So I imagine those are probably wear something to because. Well, we just are uncomfortable with kids playing with Nazis they can play with hydro moving on. I mentioned that there is a new season of the TV show as well. Moving into gear. And that's where this movie is going to be based season two adventures in the orange islands kind of tweak the formula little bit. They changed. The rap at the beginning. The animation got a little bit better Ashqout, some new friends. There's this guy named Tracy sketch it who's imagine this sketch. Artist? And he kinda replaces Brock for many of the adventures and they're riding around in aquatic settings. They replaced Brock because Brock had slanted eyes. They were scared people were going to be offended and call it a racist depiction of Japanese people and then people complained because they missed Brock. And so they ended up bringing Brock back and realizing nobody cared about the so I didn't know that was the real reason Brock disappear. They gave some reason that he had to go somewhere else. But maybe it was collecting swastikas who knows any rate. They also have this nemesis. Garry oak who is the son of professor, oh, hesser oak is the mentor throughout all of the Pokemon series. And he becomes a much bigger deal as they build up to a new contest. It's the orange league instead of the indigo league. And in this one ashed does get to win some he is much more of a hero. But by large it's the same show same idea instead of walking on a road they're sailing around in a boat. That was basically the change that happened and Tracy's going to be in this movie that we're here. Talk about and professor rogue, son. By the way is from the very first game. When you get your pokey ball from professor professor Oakes. Grandson is there and saying smell you later gramps and he just pops up throughout the game. And I'm better than you. And then I keep winning. And then he goes, there's no mayor I'm gonna go train more. But he's just this antagonistic little jerk kind of like, my nephew cries when he exactly your nephew. He's the kid you most want to hurt when you play Pokemon. But he's not going to be in this movie. I mean again, they designed the TV series. So that usually the movie comes out mid series. And there's no narrative tie into. You gotta go to the theater to get the ending from the show or anything. It's it's almost like a stand alone episode and again in America, it's coming out long after it does into pan a full year, and Japan, it was nineteen ninety nine and that was probably when it was known as legion explosive birth, but here in America as Arnim pointed out year two thousand that was the selling point why two k and all of that represents was something to build upon. This was p two K. I actually think I remember that from leg some advertising slogans. Was the TV series in closer step to what was going on in Japan over America. Or was it equally off? You know what I'm saying? Like the movie was a year late was the series a year behind over here as well. Yes. Okay. It's not like they were current with the TV series here. And then getting a movie from last season. Yeah. Nobody's going to be shocked. Brock is gone by going to the movies, and then going home and turning on the TV. They would've known by that point. But yes, they are about six to eight months behind what Japanese kids are seeing. All right. But before we get into this movie. There's another godawful short that we must discuss. At least interesting because I feel like it tried to do what we talked about. Why don't you make something without narration without dialogue something that's going to be musical? It kind of feels a little like Fantasia, if you know, you think the Chucky cheese house band is like the Disney animatronic a comparative. It's a chintzy version of that Disney. Let's explore music through animation. Classic. I missed vitamin C rescue. You gotta rescue me. It's not awful. But it's no I need vacation. But by and large the only thing this had above the Pokemon vacation one is it's half the length is it feels attornal, and it is just a parade of dancing Pokemon plot. If we must discuss that is like the humans go to sleep. What's interesting about the shorts that they completely throw away the human characters, and it's Pokemon playing with each other that doesn't ever happen in the series. But this little egg Pok Mon. Irritating falls down a hole, and it's a chance to go to a land. Where I dunno. Everyone's dancing around for some reason, they just wanna dance around. This really throws me for a loop. Because like you mentioned last time Stewart, you said if you were seven eight years old you could see getting into this. And so I- coming into this new and trying to get my footing trying to figure out what age I'm supposed to be to enjoy this. And after last week's movie, I'm like, okay. So it's pretty clear they're aiming for twelve thirteen fourteen year old Justin. And then the next thing. I see is this which feels like it's pre K naptime Justin that they're trying to grab. So I'm still not sure who Pokemon is aimed at and this is not helping the cause other thing to point out. And it was kind of a segment I wanted to bring up last week, but it feels more appropriate here. There's so much merchandise. We can't mention all the things they make. But I do want to try every Pokemon show to highlight something unusual something that you wouldn't think a normal franchise would get to do. You'll notice this little short ends with all these airplanes. Right. The credits. Go and we see a Anna airlines. Yeah. It's because AMA airlines created a Pok Mon themed flight, you could literally get into a Pika chew plane where all the seat covers and all the food and all the stewardesses are dressed as characters and you can just go anywhere in Japan in this commercial airline or to America it actually flew to LAX and back strange to me because the people you would think that would be appealing to could not afford a plane ticket could apparent justify buying a plane ticket with Japanese prices at that just so that their kid could have a toy. Wow. Arnie? Would you do that sounds like Marnie would do if he was into it? Yeah. If it were Star Wars could you just fly to the cheapest airport just to get the souvenir once upon a time. Yes. Okay. How ever? I learned with the Star Wars Burger King tie ins that it's actually cheaper to go to EBay and just by the titans than it is to buy the Burger King food, and in the cases of this. It's usually cheaper, for example. There was a rogue one helmet that you could only get if you bought a Nissan rogue, you can actually buy the helmet much cheaper than you could buy a car. Just go to EBay, and that would be my what I would do. But you don't get the experience of writing on a Pokemon theme plane. Yes, I agree. It's not just about what you're you get a goody bag. But again, I think what they were selling in the advertisements even in this little short, the ideas that you could fly to canto and live this. I mean immersive it feels a step beyond what I would expect children's entertainment to do. And certainly for that price. It would require I would think very rich and guilt ridden parrot to buy a plane ticket for their child to go to pokey land. I guess it depends where you're going. I mean, there are marvel cruises and how much different is it than international people going to Disneyland because their kids one. To go, see Disney. I mean, it's all relative. Yeah. I was gonna say a cash grab. But okay. There's marble cruises. Yeah. There's more cruises. Well, we'll have to discuss that. I mean, just had captain marvel. All right interesting. Maybe way, let's get to this movie. Arnie give them the plot. Let's get through Pok Mon two thousand Pok Mon collector, not just a trainer, but a hoarder named Lawrence has set his sights on some of the rarest Pokemon on the planet per an ancient prophecy about lightning fire and ice Laura's uses his CGI flying ship to capture the Firebird Pokemon multi use the lightning birds, zap dose and the ice bird Arctic. No, all of whom live in the orange islands and doing so upsets, the natural order of the planet and threatens a global flood that will kill all life on earth. Didn't we just have that lasted anyway, pan water isn't always a threat? Soon. But as if by fate Ashkenazim the ten year old Pokemon trainer along with his friends, Tracy and misty and his trustee Pokemon Pika chew are taken to the islands during a storm caused unintentionally by Lawrence, capturing moral trysts, and there they meet melody an island native who's the maiden of the island ceremony that annually pays tribute to the three birds. I think legends in some vague legends. Okay. As part of a flirtation melody picks ash as the festival's chosen one to go to the islands of retrieved glass balls that will be taken to a shrine ashes so excited to be the chosen when he goes immediately, but he and his friends encounter zap dose who's come to fire island. Now that mole trust is gone at you, try to talk to dose when Laura's arrives to capture the lightning bird also captured her ashes friends who discover Lawrence's plan and as Lawrence tries to capture Taku, no Ashra leases app does and mole trips. Thinking it will help is did the three powerful birds. Go to war fighting each other which breaks up Lawrence's true target Luzia, not Luigi Luigia, not Robert loggia lose. Although it should have been voiced by how. How? Gotta do you want me to slap Eileen? But Lucia Pok Mon beast of the sea Luzia is prophesized to appear when the three powerful birds fight, but lose you cannot stop them. He says the only way to stop their fighting, and the destruction of the planet is for the chosen one to get the three treasures to the shrine and ask just isn't the chosen one for the ceremony. But in fact, the chosen one of prophecy, he gathered the three totems of fire electricity and ice aided by evil team rocket members Jesse Janson meow lift who've decided they want to be good guys to help save the planet. Lawrence uses chaos to try to capture Lucia, but lose you destroys Lawrence's ship and returns to his underwater haven Atkins, the todos to the shrine, which is guarded by talking slow king, then melody has to play the ceremonial tune which gets the power birds attention, and they stopped fighting and the birds return to their islands and Lucia writes, the secrets that have been threatening earth as credits roll. Wow. So much prophecy and ancient scripts and well, the last one opened with MU two and really just pulled me in with its human drama this one feels like Pokemon director by Shamlan. Complicated too complicated by far. I agreed that part of the problem with connecting to this one. Is that we have a villain. I've never seen before or since Lawrence third have presumed. The third is to signify that he's rich and therefore greedy, like Winston Howell. Yeah. I liked that they're making this villain. The interesting nuance, you pointed out and your plot summary was that he's not a trainer everyone that we see that loves and collects Pok Mon in the show are breeders trainers are people that have a vested interest in seeing those animals get better at whatever it is. They're going to do this guy just likes to amass a collection. And that's quite a thing to put on to criticize collectors that's pot kettle. You're black. I mean that's hypocritical. There's nuance in nets though, because even amongst collectors there's a code don't buy more than what you need help other collectors out. Don't just have a basement full of Tupperware containers. Hoarding the most expensive rare stuff. Just so you can be the coolest guy how expensive are Tupperware, by the way, my mom might be sitting on the Goldman. To me. This was the message that kind of drew me into this story was like, okay. We're teaching kids. You got to catch them all teaching kids? Something's a rare some things are more expensive than others. But don't be an a hole about it. I kind of like where they're starting off with this. Yeah. I didn't see that watching the movie because there are so many moving parts, but if that were something that they drilled down in and emphasized if I knew much about Lawrence, and he was really a character. And we got to see that lesson being taught I think that would have been helpful that would have been relevant as relevant as the whole genetic stuff. They were talking about last movie. Yeah. My go-to was he's one for code away from benishi del Toro when guardians of the galaxy. He just wants to have this menagerie of rare Pok Mon for the sake of having a collection. And this is where I do see better animation. I complained last week that the animation was not as good here. I didn't notice CGI doors and things last time, but this guy ship is clearly three. Eighty rendered. It looks like nothing else in the movie, and it's kind of cool looking you sell this a lot in the nineties where they were trying to bring in that new look and side by side, and it isn't seamless by any means. But at least I appreciate that the trying to give us a bigger theatrical experience and they've updated their color pellet to that last movie seemed kind of toned down. But this one they're getting more vibrant with the moving parts their backgrounds or seem to be a little bit more detailed in the hand paintings and stuff like that. So there is a step up in the production value here, and there's three very colorful birds what he's going to eight on or multi-race zap dose and Arctic Kyun, no Spanish counting. I noticed that as well. Three to one it made me think well, Pokemon two thousand that was kinda thing. Right. Like there was this whole as tech like into the world prophecy. Yeah. I wonder if they were trying to. I mean, they call it onto thousand because it was the year two thousand, but there was a lot of anxiety about apocalypse, and I do think that with Aztec, and I don't know maybe I'm over reading counting down from in Spanish. But what we do know for sure is that as these birds are taken out of their elements and their islands. It is upsetting the balance and causing the world to yet again threatened to be flooded. And so yes in hoarding this collector threatens us all I was surprised how quickly he catches mullets here at the beginning. Because I mean, he's talking to some Pok Mon just who is there simply so he can espouse his evil plan to us the audience, and he's like, well, we'll get this. We'll get this and we'll get this. And I think that will be the whole plan of the movie is like he's going to one. He's going to the other and the climax will be around him getting the third right? He's the villain. Not like. Boop. I have the first one. Let's go after number two. Now, that's all in the prologue. I was like, oh, okay. That. Didn't take much time at all. It doesn't seem like it's hard to get these birds. Yeah. Again, a big problem than have with this movie. Is that Lawrence is just not developed. I wanna feel like he's capturing them because he's got an edgy. You know, their legendary nobody else has been able to do this. We have all of these Pokemon hunters roving the islands. And this is the only guy that can do it. I want to know more about him. And it's just very perfunctory the way that they're going to go down, and we're very quickly cutting to the boat with our heroes are season two heroes. I wanna point out that this is. Yeah. Ketchum misty. But with the new guy Tracy and with some girl with green hair, I've never seen before since Barron down here. I had a problem with the animation. Did you guys notice that when you have a far shot where the people's heads are really small? There is a really vertical, and it almost looked like some weird kabuki mask like there is we're going halfway down their cheeks and just like this black this. I thought. It was almost like a VHS tape warping or something. But I was watching this in HD. So I'm like, that's just bad rendering? I think the flash software didn't do. So. Well, I mean, you are aware anime big is that's the thing. Right. When it's up close it looks normal when it's far away. It looks like they're pupils melting down their face. I did not notice this. But I take your word for it. It wasn't a problem for me. Basically. We're meeting the whole game. They're opening their balls in every Pok Mon they've met and captured in season two so far is swimming along with them when they get hit by see storm being caused because mole trees has been captured and they wash ashore at Shimoji Islay. I do like one joke here they're opening up and releasing all of the Pok Mon and asks releases a store ax. Which is this giant panda. Looking thing that's always asleep. And he lands on the boat. And he so heavy the boat starts to tip and ask us to put him back in. It's all in the background. But it was just. Little visual gag that. I enjoyed seeing plus Howard decide his back. So I'm happy. I got that too. It was just a cute little montage at the beginning to show. You know, things are good for the crew of that we've been following for half a season now, and it's time to let the Pokemon out to play in the snow wrecks just pops in out real quick. So I enjoyed that. But my question is at this point, not knowing are we meeting new Pokemon? Now is this designed for us to be excited about these birds or they new characters. Well, some of the people that he's pulling up the Lapress the monster that he rides a lot on in the season two is is there there are new Pok Mon to be excited about just as the game is introduced one hundred new ones there as I don't think one hundred but there are new characters here along with classics like Pika chew. But the birds are the big deal. Yes. Those are the ones to be really excited about they haven't been seen before in the cartoon. Okay. So at least they're showcasing new characters in the story. A degree. Yes. And they get to this island where it's very important to the culture to tell basically the plot that act needs to follow that if there is going to be balanced restored. It's going to be for him to go to each bird island capture. A crystal ball and put it in a silent know kind of like a quarter eating arcade machine. I don't know that magically does something. All right. I got a lot of questions here that this movie never answers and frustrates me. But maybe you guys can help first of all. Where'd you do to this new girl? Melody, and she's too cool to be wearing one of the island outfits, even though she's the maiden of the festival this year, but she's not going to wear one of the masks and things, but she sees ash, and she's immediately asking misty, are you his girlfriend? No, okay. And she's like kissing him on the cheek and things there's a transient. I think okay. This is a movie what is setting it apart from the series. What is going to make this worthwhile? I think what's going. To happen is even though they're just ten it's going to end with Asha and misty revealing their feelings for each other never happens. There's a lot of is that your girlfriend is that your boyfriend talk so much. So that like is getting back into that kindergarten first grade humor that gets to the point of annoyingness. Yeah. It is a scandal. Right. And you know, you have a crush on someone at ten years old. Maybe something you don't want everyone to know playing with that embarrassment. Feels right and yeah, exploring something about misty who is just this constant third wheel that never has much to offer other than her repulsion to bug Pok Mon I can't think of anything that the series has told me about her. Why not explore a love triangle where this new character threatens to move in on her, man. It would have been nice to do something with her. They set it up. Very, well, it's not breaking new ground here in storytelling terms. It's a stereotypical story. But the stereotype always ends with a resolution and here. Here. It's just like, okay. I'm no longer going to try to come between you and misty. Even though you two aren't an item. That was very frustrating that you have all of this setup with no pay off. Yeah. The second question. I have is. Okay. It seems like this is an annual ceremony. They have because melody says she seen her older sister. Do this routine so many years, but now she's getting to do it as every year somebody has to go to these three islands get these glass balls put them in the train is somebody then taking them back in hiding together for next year that crap cab that stick, but. Yeah, short straw. You. Haven't been parents and Easter rolls around every year and somebody's gotta hide those aides. Yeah. It is like ashes trouble getting the fire or about could choose like, here's the fireworks. But ashes like pulling and pulling I think he's going to break the glass, it's like he is at the beginning of raiders of the lost. Ark. What you see the gold idol. Oil and India's taking the gold itl, and nobody has seen the gold idol since the days of the Incas only here this happened again last year. So it's not really that big a deal. I don't think it is a big deal. I mean, I think what makes it a big deal this year is that Lawrence is actually upsetting the balance. This would otherwise just be a play a staging of ancient times and win some hero did have to do this for real. But I think when they go and get the balls before it doesn't do anything this year, they actually need them because as the birds disappear the get more treacherous. But to continue with my Indiana Jones, analogy the super like using the car's stones from temple of doom as a paperweight. You know, it's an Easter egg hunt for the cars stones that actually could allow me to rip people's hearts out have severe mystical power. It's still had dropped one of these glass balls the world would be doomed, and they were just treating it like a goof. Yeah, they should have had a play in which someone. Yes, has construction paper crystals, and they can just show everyone eating dinner. It's like dinner theater. They could just do it right there. And enjoy it and have a meal and now we're done with our festival. The fact that he actually has to go to these islands is convenient because we want big excitement, and we get more. I know it's again better than the TV series kind of action with these tidal waves and boats flipping and team rocket coming up. They're always liking the dress up. That's a big part of how we laugh at me out thin Jesse James here, they're writing and a giant carp submarine and end up washing ashore and fire island only, that's not carp, but some kind of Pokemon, right? Because from what I understand there's no re-lane Ables in the Polk. On world. So there's no carp like we would have in the fish like some carpet, tea or something that would evolve into carpaccio lists. Yeah. I didn't guy that deep, but I'll go with what you're saying. And it takes fire island for James to finally come out. I thought this was a big step. He wants big the movies. Like, it's mentioned that when you get involved with the opposite sex. It's trouble. And he says, quote, that's the kind of trouble. I stay out of. So there you go. There's reveal. Yeah. It gives a funny thing of like these to each other. So they don't need the opposite. Yeah. He's weird place. Okay. Let's let's stay like my mind needs to just get down. We're talking about birds here staff does is about to be grab, let's fixate on the plot. But there's another weird line that misty says because ashes like let's go to the island misty says if you want someone to do whatever you want win over you want. You should get yourself a girlfriend. I'm like, that's what girlfriends do. Maybe you should get yourself an escort. I know girlfriends just don't go on your every women fancy. Yeah. This is not with current mindsets. We'll just leave it there. Or written by a fourteen year old who's never had a girlfriend once again, I'm wondering who this is aimed at. Meanwhile, they cut back to characters that you haven't seen in the movies yet, but are fairly common in the TV show. I'm wondering how this translated for you guys when we cut back to pallet town, we meet professor oak who again is almost in every episode of the show, and we meet Delia who is ashes mom her very permissive like should be arrested for letting her child wander the countryside bomb. Well, it is different in Pokemon world. It is specifically said in the game that at the age of ten children are mandated if they become Pokemon trainers. So it's kind of like Stephen king's the long walk. You know, the kids can go out there and be shot and do whatever. But as long as they're in training. But for me, I looked at Justin for this. Because I watched the first episode by this point, I knew both these characters from both the game and the show, Justin. How were you flowing? I think they did a pretty good job of may. It clear that this was ashes mother. So it wasn't that confusing of a scene. I wasn't exactly sure. Geographically where we were. And how far away they were from home at this point. But I think it was pretty clear that this was home. These are people that know Ashish and are worried about his well being and are being impacted by the same storms and weather conundrums that they are. I love Mr. mime in this, by the way, Mr. mime, the rain's coming in Mr. mom runs away. And I'm like, oh, yeah. That's a mister mind thing to do. I'm afraid of the rank. He goes back out with an umbrella for the mom not for oak. But the mom, yeah. I had a Mr. mime card in the Pokemon card game. Not you wouldn't love him. If you had it Stewart is not ready to reveal his favorite Pok Mon yet. But I'm gonna tell you right now, Mr. mine is my least favorite. He freaks me out. Yeah. He's he's very happy to be a slave. There's something very unsettling with his willingness to prostrate himself or this woman in her guard. I had a problem because he's a mime yet. He says mime mime your mind, you're supposed to just pantomime. I just looks like a Dany veto experiment. Gone awry. It's just the nannies all wrong. It's creepy and they get on a plane because the news is wanting to let everyone know this phenomenon happening. They will be presenting a lot of the back story on what the disappearance of the birds means, and what we can expect and this giant river current that is flowing out of the orange islands and causing everywhere to go radically from rainstorms to snowstorms to what have you freeze the ocean over? I mean, that's pretty radical for weather and another CGI graphic here, we see leg specific currents of water flowing in a certain way that is causing this problem. But then we cut to slow king who's talking at the same like, I could really use pants slow king. Yeah, they tease him for a long time. There's just this pink hippopotamus that just standing outside a relic with a shitting grin on his face. I don't know what's up, but he'll stand through the weatherman, sleet, snow whatever's going on. He is standing guard of the place where you bring the magic ball. So this is essentially the finish line for his quest. If he goes to fire island, lightning island, ice I land, and successfully retrieves the glass balls, they can actually be used to help with this real weather problem and the second bird is being grabbed by this point. It's a round this time that I finally realize what this movie is. And it's something I liked which was a surprise because this is not a movie I really enjoyed so far. But this is a God syllabus movie and God Zillah movies ways to hell time in the first hour where people from space, come and grab other monsters. You don't care about and haul them away for unknown reasons. I'll building up an anticipation so that when you finally get. Your big it's exciting. And the main character of this new movie is not a monster. But in fact, Godzilla a monster that is meant to put other monsters under its control the great guardian Lucia. I thought he'd be a bad guy because beauty was kind of a bad guy. But no he is someone to get Rodin under control. This story is so convoluted and the way it's told the way we see oak talking to the mother, and we see Lawrence saying what he wants is to find this rare beast of the sea. I'm having trouble following it. I did and watching this movie one and a half times. I watched that the first time at after thirty eight minutes, I could bear no more. I walked away. This is about the time Stewart's texting me, can we reschedule recording. Yes. So I could turn this thing off 'cause I'm lost. I'm trying to cram it in before recording. So then return to it with a cleaner, mindset and. Even with the clean mindset of like, I understand kind of what's happened in this guy. Stealing birds that's bad for the youth might but I'm not following. All this prophecy chat. They're doing I one of we haven't done this series. And we may never because it's so enormous. We cover the only God Zillah that's not like this pattern. But if you go back to those original Japanese movies, it takes an hour for you to see Godzilla. And meanwhile, you see these two inch little girls that come out of a coconut Lou, and you know, monster island, there's always these other monsters and people conspiring they are building up the idea that these three baddest birds that we don't like and that we need somebody to corral them and put them under control. And at forty eight minutes that character finally pops out of the water. I don't know why it takes this disruption. But he's coming out to do Godzilla like things with the other big birds. It's not as thrilling for me. Because when you're watching train sets be stomped on by men. And rubber suits that just has a vicarious thrill. That's a lot more tap into my destruction needs a lot more than this. Crude animation could is not satisfying to watch these bird fights. What's also weird is the way the story is unfolding ashes going to get the glass balls before he realizes it's actually important, and he ends up with two of the glass balls before he realizes that its earth saving and the only real quest is to go get the third one. It's just you know, what I'm not opposed to breaking convention. This does not need to satisfy me to follow. The wrote beats of this happens at the thirty minute Mark this happens at the sixty minute Mark this happens at the climax. But it's just really making it hard to follow somebody not deep into the pokey mythology. Maybe if I'd been watching every episode, I just be like, oh, yes. Of the see I know him because I bought the latest game. No, you wouldn't know these guys. This is all new. It's not predicated on you being a superfan. I think that it's supposed to be cool to watch electric bird fly in and have zap fest with Pika chew. I think it's just a God zeal of movie you introduce all the subsequent monsters in anticipation of the big I finally showing up and the human characters always do struggle to stay in the plot. Ash I feel for him because there's nothing really for him to do other than. Yeah. They give them this go. Collect the crystal ball things that seems to matter less than having a down with big bird. And I do think that's maybe the disconnect here is you want ask to be more involved with the fights. We care about. He's not pitting his Pok Mon against these legendary Pokemon. It's all for Lucia to do that. I think that is probably the most disheartening thing to learn about this movie is because you're right. It is confusing despite all of the exposition they're giving us with newscasts and talking to slow king. Giving us bits of information and the islanders who have parts of the information. I was kinda hoping like Arne that these characters were things that kids who follow the series and play the card game. Understood like, oh as soon as Lucius shows up this is going to happen. But it's as it turns out. It's just pointless quest that is set up to take forty five minutes for no reason other than, hey, this looks kind of need on screen. I mean, if it were Godzilla movie, it would be fun to just watch these things simply bat into one another. That's just man in suit going at Mannion suit is always fun. But crude animation battles in the water. Not the same thing. I mean, yes. The city in the sky crashes, there is some destruction. But I just don't think it's thrilling in the same way. Because it's in a different medium. I just don't think you can make an animated Godzilla movie. I wouldn't wanna watch that there. Wasn't animated TV show didn't watch. It got Zouqi. I remember it. I liked him any here. I agree. It's just. Not very compelling to watch this story unfold. I just don't feel invested in any character the way I felt in MU to and again trying to view this dispassionately not what do I enjoy? But is this functioning the animation while they have some nice CGI stuff? Let's keep my we're one year before final fantasy the spirits within. So they're not breaking any ground on CGI. And this isn't living up to anything. We've seen already at this time like bugs life from Pixar monsters Inc. I think this came out the same year as finding nemo. So we've got crude animation, and storytelling that's confusing and characters that aren't properly introduced so so far from a purely analytical standpoint, this movie is failing. Well, how do you feel about team rocket trying to save it with some comic relief because they decide to rewrite the always comedic villains, but always villainous characters to do a lot of Heroux IX here and that will be surprise for. Fans of the show that they decide they want to be heroes. Just for one day. I don't know what the Bowie references mitt the true or not. But that's what they say. They're going to go and bus the birds out and try to get Pika chew and ask across the battleground. I mean, we see them taking an active role in trying to help the plot. While meanwhile, every other Pokemon on the planet is also making the pilgrimage there because I don't know we just need a cheering section. There's nothing for them to do. They have no plan. But they since the end of the world is near and they wanna be there to do what the Candice stop it. Even as the newbie. I got the sense that team rocket being good was a big deal. I think what they dialed up. Here was the extra streamed rhymes and all that stuff was just coming off way way too corny for me. I mean, it was cringe-worthy almost every time. They did their little back and forth rhyme scheme. Yeah. This one. They went. Little bit meta which prepare for more trouble you've ever seen and make double we're on the big screen and ashes something very prophetic. I'll wait for video. Yeah. I mean, they've been known to do that. Then we're even episodes of the TV series where they were cast in a Pokemon movie. And they're aware that they're in a different medium and have called it out. And I think that can be sometimes fun. It's very deadpool of them. I mean, close as you're going to get in this. How about that? They have a Weight Watchers joke that got me to smile, but for the most part they are humor dialed for the youngest members of the audience. And I don't think you're as an adult going to be rolling on the ground holding your belly had to wonder speaking of holding your belly that Weight Watchers was a product placement. I don't think so I just literally think that they were like, well, you wonder what the original was. Yes. That's always the interesting thing is that we know that they're probably Weight Watchers in Japan. So what was the original jokes? What were they actually saying? And why did it become that? I would like to. Actually have seen a bonus feature with the translators. I had that exact pot in the first movie when they made a Minnesota Vikings joke. I'm like, I wonder what that was originally. Yes. I don't believe the original writers and creators in Japan would have had that savvy for American audiences in their head. Anyway, lots of bird fighting not doing a whole lot for me. But I'm trying to enjoy it. I don't like birds. So seeing them get beaten is kind of some I sense fine. They don't ever have a hand up. It seems like this attornal sisyphean battlid. I feel like they battle for good half an hour. There should be somebody starting to win. Yeah. That is the weird thing as we get to this. They're going to do the same thing they did with MU to where kind of the fight to stops. Like in this case, it takes melody blowing on a sea shell and Ashby pudding. The crystal balls in the slots, but like Godzilla movie, I wanna see one of them lying on the ground. Not getting up at the very least I wanna see Lawrence getting defeated for having caused. Imbalance? He walks away from the free. He mentions the fact that he was a car collector. I his last seen as we see him grab a MU card and walk off unpunished like that's just wrong. He loses his ship though. The loggia crashes his ship. Okay. Did he lose his collection? I mean, I guess one new card is hurtful for a collector that would hurt. Yeah. He's he has to start over. It's not enough. I wanted the moral to be underlined. I wanted for young audiences to understand that he was the bad guy, and he had been wronged and victory. I wanted to victory not of musical sequence. Which is what we get are you suggesting he needed to die for this. I mean, it's now again, I would argue it is for all audiences and kids cartoons have death in it. I think that yes, something I'll Jiang is when I watched a Godzilla movie as a child I love seeing Rodin lying on the ground. And that's what I want here. If three birds are going against one I want somebody not to survive at the end, but it's all about balance, and harmony and Zan was blocking hippo for some reason, they never used the talking hippo to its potential. He's like my favorite character. This whole. I don't know what he's the king of Allbaugh him. The closest thing we get to shocking death year is when Lucia is shot from the sky while ashen pitcher writing him, and we're supposed to believe that he's drowning. I mean, he's a water creature. Right. The play this all dramatically like, oh, no luge is what going to wake up in a few minutes. I didn't understand that. What about the fall sacrifice of team rocket who were hanging onto you? We're waiting him down. We must be good people. Let go and fall into the water and do a sacrifice again that was the Weight Watchers jokes. It was worth it for that. But what I'm saying is this one feels more battle heavy it has less science fiction concepts that are made for adults. You will have less to explain to a we one you won't have to explain procreation. And where you come from and uncomfortable subject matter. So why can't we make the battles more fun? I guess they're still trying to send the message Pokemon is not about fighting. Which is talking out of both sides of your mouth TV series is all about fighting and having fun with the fights and coming back stronger after getting beat down like rocky, and this is all about don't fight and take rocks to a certain place, and I just very unsatisfied with Ashby. Ing the prophesized chosen one like Anna can Skywalker here will this play out in future, TV episodes. I don't know the will ever know, maybe our listeners could tell me if this ever plays out and his chosen one status becomes a ongoing thing. But here it's schist again. So perfunctory ash, you really are the chosen one, and you must go do this. And he does. And then what is he bringing balance to the Pok Mon, I wanna know all I know is we're definitely on fire island 'cause disco Queen Donna summer coming in with that end theme song the power of one which I just got to say the best thing about this movie. Is this song? Do you know that this song inspired presidential campaign? No. I was wondering when this is gonna come up. This is it is totally awesome. It can always be thrown into the unusual merchandise. Pok Mon had a president candidate in Herman Cain, Godfather's pizza tycoon with his wealthy nine nine nine tax plan. You might remember him from the lineup of two thousand twelve Republican candidates. He ended one debate by saying quote, a poet once said life can be a challenge. Life can seem impossible. But it's never easy when there's so much on the line. Well that poet is Donna summer in this song. And it didn't stop there on the campaign trail all of his stump. Speeches featured lyrics from the power of I believe it was Rachel Matt. I call this one. Are you doing why are you the Pok Mon candidate and paint kept saying, no, I'm quoting music from the closing ceremonies of the two thousand Olympics. No, it's. Herman. When he got caught like, his infidelities came to light. He had to drop out. Did he finally come clean and in his farewell address to his fans? He doubled down and said, I believe these words came from the pokey mum movie. And then went and did two minutes of the Kim sun. I believe him the song whatever it came from. This is my message. I actually really didn't like this Donna summer song. But it was just too dazed confused, and perhaps having an epileptic seizure from all the flashing on the screen. So the credits continued to unspools in front of my glazed is when all of a sudden weird Al shows up with his poke Lamont song that to me is the best part of this whole movie. I knew you would love it weird Al fan. And yes, I guess he he did it for this film like into something they bought that. He had done on an album like he did poke Amman because he's a polka guy. He plays the accordion, and that's stick. I mean, I have all of his albums and on everyone. He does a polka medley where he does all the hits of the day, and he just doesn't in poker style. And it's actually sometimes the best track on their versus his parodies about food. And so yeah, here this was on the soundtrack to go. Get your Pok Mon song, Herman Cain, loves it. Gives it a nine nine nine. It also seems to be hitting the target audience properly. Right. I mean, what kid in two thousand gives a crap about Donna summer. But we're now he's still relevant and might be something fun to have on your CD player. But is this something fun to have on your DVR or in your DVD collection? Johnston Stewart do you choose recommend or not recommend Justin? It's becoming more and more obvious that the things I think I want from Pok Mon are probably just in the episodes that were not reviewing because what I want is. I want just quick half hour ventures where we meet a couple new Pokemon. We find out what their powers are. And why it'd be cool to have them in your deck at home. But that's not what we're getting here. We're meeting new Pok Mon, but the ones that we do know we don't get to see them fight and the ones that are fighting aren't really fighting. They're often the distance shooting lightning at each other. I'm not learning anything about their powers or what makes them cooler. What would make? Me want to have them in my collection. So basically Pokemon is just the setting in this movie. There's really nothing super-duper Pokemon about this. This could have been any movie with any style of animation and went to changed anything. This almost makes me want to go back in change the last review two little bit more positive because this is a major step down from that last movie that I did not recommend. So I'm a little scared where the future is gonna take us in this series because while the production value was up a little bit. And it was a little easier to watch it's not sucking me into this Pokemon. Lord, all I just feel like they're saying, hey, you either love Pokemon and know it and you wanna come along for whatever seventy five minutes, we've been able to string together. Here's a story. This is for you, otherwise Zia next week kids. So yeah, this one is a major step down. And it actually makes me a little weary about going into next week. So this one's an even bigger disappointment. And a bigger red error for me, Stuart what's your haiku saying? Yeah. Well, you know, I love it. It's gonna be a recommend collecting is evil. And we'll destroy earth's balance. Ditto your wallet. I choose Godzilla. When I want to see cities turned into ashes, I choose Donna to make laughter out of Kane. In a pretty song. Does good really happen? If by Sanders, do not see the power of one a mild green arrow for those who fear earth will drown in large bird droppings. I fear that in your haiku writing. You've given a green arrow to a film completely undeserving of such an award. I love it. It's own. That's your stick like Zillow movies in. I do think that this is not is not the word mild was used. I said green Arrow's glow last week mild. I can give this a pass ideas a step down. I'm we're all on the same page. This is much more of a muddle. It's not a great way to begin a millennium. Good good thing. They have nineteen more films to change my. For me. This is what I expected. It's funny because it's like I came in. And I expected this movie, and it gave me something actually a little bit deeper with some spiritual themes and things that I think would really inspire younger people to think the last movie. Yes, not this one. No, I expected this. And then they impressed me with what the last movie had then I feel punked like you expect that again, full you. Here's exactly what you expect. It's like if I went to see carrot top. Just let me go. Okay, ready? I'm having a major revolt. If I go to secure, and Tom, I expect prop humor, and he starts quoting Nichii. Yeah. But then he puts a pie in my face. It's like I knew I was in for a bad time. And then you made me think there was more to you than there was and now I realize I just have pied my face, right? So it's a not recommend and it. Makes me fear. What the next three weeks have? But at least there's only three more. You know, we're we're nearly halfway done already. I mean, there's four if you count the live action thing the live action thing I would actually see with without now playing Ryan Reynolds is peak chew count me. In is this animated stuff, that's truly. Now. I don't know what to expect X week. It's like a game of Russian roulette am I going to get MU to or am I going to get two thousand mess? Don't know. I mean, I think maybe part of why I can be kinder is I've been saturating in the TV series. You guys are seeing two lumps week apart. And I'm having to watch long runs of show. And so this one feels a little bit better than average hints the mild recommend, but it is a step down from what we got. And maybe I am expecting to little out of a Pokemon movie. Maybe they should try for more. Maybe they will fix the balance when we get to poke him on three next week. Meanwhile, if you want to watch something, very different. Why not the man with no name trilogy, which we're going to start as part of our silver level spring donation series this Friday with a fistful of dollars. I can't imagine the person that loves both movies. But maybe that will fire if you didn't Pokemon two thousand I guess, it's you because you green arrow this. And I can't imagine we haven't recorded as of this. We haven't talked about it as other than I can't imagine you've read air wing man with no name. I'm not going to do that. There you go. You're the person you can't imagine. I can't imagine people giving this movie agreeing either. I mean, you know, but yes, it is the start of our spring donations series fall. We hardly new year.

We're back at the twenty five dollar Mark where you get seven nineteen eighty nine summer films all the one offs that. We've referenced time and time again because we've reviewed so many movies from nineteen eighty nine at this. Point, but some of them weren't franchises. So let us talk about when Harry met Sally and sex lies and videotape dead poet's society. Honey, I shrunk the kids the abyss do the right thing. It was all in one summer and many of these films were similar would set the tone for so much of the films of the nineties and beyond. It's really incredible. A peak really in film summer movie going, and I think that it's fun to have the thirty year anniversary and reflect an all the different kinds from family movies to action films, social dramas, they were all happening in that summer, and we're gonna try to encapsulate it all including the action franchise of the summer, which will be our platinum series lethal weapon. Two came out in one thousand nine hundred nine we're going to cover all four lethal weapon films. If you can go above and beyond for platinum donation, and then we've got two levels above that.

Using your iPad to win at Zoom video meetings (The Daily Charge, 4/17/2020)

"Hi there I'm Fox Allen and I'm lance cartel and we're TV guide survivor brothers. Join US every week throughout survivors season forty winners at war as we speak with you. Green interview with survivor legends strategy. Talk Analysis and more bequeath. That's fun to say next year is. Don't miss a single moment of this most height survivor. Season of all time subscribe survivor. Brothers on Apple podcast. Google podcasts spotify. I Heart Radio Stitcher. Basically anywhere good. Podcasts ARE FOUND. Everyone on lockdown videoconferencing apps like zoom or than ever. But how does one presume call our change? This is your daily charged with me is seen as expert on future tack Amateur Magician Scott Stein as got. Hey Harry Archer. I'm sure I'm sure like me. Your life is consumed via conferencing whether zoom whether it's skype or facetime GONNA ask. How often are you a video A lot a lot a lot a lot. I think we all are now right. So Roy getting pinged by a by zooms in house parties and hangouts facetime in just like life. Now I'm such a lot less social than you are Deathly more Ibert when it comes to at least in this lockdown environment. So I actually don't have I haven't had as many as Are Work related but you you are like living life on video basically Ryan Lahiri interacting with people personal family friends colleagues. Everything's on video now right now. I have to say to that. I am outgoing but also apartment. That's very introverted. At the same time so I know what you mean like there are times. I just don't want to do it. And that's also any mention that the story but that's okay like we're all feeling moments or overwhelmed like there's a new weird commitment. I feel like to to join the their exhausting to join You know families zooms in house parties for sure. I think that that's why I wanNA talk to you about your story today. You have peace looking at how to make the visual presentation of the video conferences. A little bit better particular like using your ipad which I imagine folks doing. We use our IPADS conferencing all the time. And so you've you've come up with Jackson's and a couple of times Are Walking through like what What are some of the things to consider when using your IPAD for videoconference? Cheryl this popped up. Because it's just you know something like I don't know if I've all the greatest suggestions but I know that I'm using it alive and a lot of people are because it's bigger than an iphone and it's more convenient than a laptop but the first thing you notice when you grab an ipad as it should be the best tool but the cameras in a weird place and meaning like most of the time if you have a case to prop it up the cameras going to be on the on the left edge right because if you're on a landscape mode it's it's yeah it's on the left. It's it's weird angle right so all of a sudden your face looks like it's not looking at directly at the camera. You have this weird. You have to adjust for that. I find that it's just helpful. Like kind of cheated a bed and like try to look at the edge. But that's also weird or just relax tilt the ipad. Just like let go and say whatever but it's weird because I'm trying to look at people at you know. Some of them lighted drag. The the view zoom is not that flexible in NYC had. And it's also I didn't even mention you can't multitask on it so it's not like you can bring in another pain right on the IPAD but I'd say like the cameras the one big thing to account for the second which is like another kind of dumb but important thing is how you prop it up. Yes a laptop Yelich. Laptops are great for that I PADS ARE NOT. Because the angles wrong most ipads the cases angle upwards. And so you're you're all of a sudden getting like a lot of Shannon. You're getting a lot of like the ceiling. I mean we have a stand that we use and the angle is just. It's too low right day. It's the angles who small so it. You don't even get the head. The top of the hand is particularly annoying for For my son. Who USES IT as a Kid? He kind of sits low anyways. So you get like a bit of hair. Yeah basically on the screen that said you and basically we've had to use everything from toothpicks to other pieces of paper or book to Kinda prop up the back of the ipad ankle at correct cabbage. I like books if to be careful as you perhaps something up to it too much of an angle of magnetic case or selling a good fall. You don't WanNa break your IPAD Birdie. Got One crack. Pipe Pat around the house. So like he you could. You could push books together. Wedge between. It's it's weird stuff like that also realized like you know we did a Passover over Seder Seder Seder Via via zoom And also be a house party and to get everyone in frame is the other thing Assuming it's not just you that if it's a family you're GONNA have to get really creative with the angles. I find that you know unlike the weird cameras on iphones and things like that. They can go wide angle. There's not there's not much of an option on an IPAD for that you have to push it back to push it back like a few feet and just make sure everybody was kind of all artfully composed that we can all see each other. So there's there's also that frustration Symptoms I find tilting. Portrait and landscape is give to try to find the one that works best for shot. You're trying to get right right. You talked lebow lighting to rent like actually that comics difference particularly because that front facing camera. Isn't the best camera there? Yeah it's it is important in Brian. Cooley it's Given a lot of tips on her side about how to light yourself well for professional stuff that certainly important ethics typical things. You'll talk about her of avoid doing right now which is sitting behind a brightly lit window. But it right. But that's what I what I have at the moment. And that's the thing is sometimes you'll have things you just can't avoid so. I think everyone's more forgiving now in there. Also you know there's a certain great to the world that like I would say. Don't worry too much. Just roll with it but I'd say don't be backlit. Try TO BE FRONT LIT. Obviously you know. Check your hair and stuff like that but there's also some things you can do. We're all sitting in weird spaces and feeling like we're vulnerable personal lives exposing that you can put a virtual background on which is like what everybody seems to be doing. That's helpful It's easier on ipads. It runs a little smoother. I found a laptop sometimes. The graphic requirements prohibit you from using virtual background but IPADS. I find good luck with it and you could put yourself in whatever something for your Photo Library. Or one of the presets ever space right and other previous zoom. So that at least allows me to you. Know Mask the background in not me. And then the other thing is helpful which is not a camera. Thing is to put on headphones. Because everybody's all around you and you may not want people in the room like friend. Zooms were psychology friends in. They're all saying whatever gala craze rowdy gala routing with your yeah so cricket. Yassin to that Anyone Room Privacy. I will say go back. Your virtual background like I've become fathom that because I'm a fan of virtual backgrounds but it it's a good way to hide the clutter. Yes mess around my house because it is a message. Complete disaster right now. We have barely everything under control so babble like put a Nice beach background on or at least my current favourite is just having a baby. Yoda behind me hovering. And it's it's reassuring I think it is it disarms people they see that back on the guy like is not yet. It's comforting is fun. You know he's yeah. Yeah so that's why as one of those things. There aren't headphones. Gripping what than the other suggestions you have You know turn off notifications you know if you find game. Pink tremendous systems as can block things out This is the biggest ones I would. I would say that like getting used to the weirdest of the individual Getting back to zoom is not multitask friendly so like if you hop out of it which again it's fine. It could still talk in the background. Or you're just not going to be like Visually present Have to get used to that There's deeper stopped like we've given zoom tips on on scene it about like a recording. Zooms if you're if you're doing that which even gotten them into yet crazily enough on sharing screens which a couple of friends that are really into socially Getting used to doing that. That has its ups and downs. It's super important for professional angle but like when friends do it in a chat. It starts filling the powerpoint so he kinda like a like a seminar. Now I do feel that like I was talking to somebody else unrelated to this about how creative right. Now when you're trapped at home all these things it's important. I think to celebrate the limits. Which is you? Think about all these extra tips and tools. But it's also okay to not use those and to just do what you've got and and it'll be fine the communicate so I think that's also being easy on yourself with this and not panicking. About what do I need to do is all right? Nobody people are more forgiving. Now that about you showing up in whatever and not being lit well than they ever have and I think that's true across the board I mean look we have like TV shows. That are at night live. Or you know Colbert in an It's like it's like a new charm in in the world which is like the you know it's almost like to show to show the real you in all of its like we regret is like it's it's maybe better in some ways than trying to be too professional absolutely. I think there's some other be said about a showing that authenticity in the experience. Either one more thing which is like. I think this is obvious but I forgot. People don't know about it. Just guarantee gallery viewers Sakda view if you've never used zoom before just remember to tap that button which is a little confusing. His can be gala reviewing the other one's active speaker basely vacuum speaker. It's it's great for a couple of people so like the main person can talk and fill the screen gallery turns you into the Brady Bunch. Where like everybody's a little Hollywood square? That's great for for big route family reunions if you have sixty people it's a little weird but it's a great way for like eight or nine. I feel like it's a fantastic way realize who's in the room and acknowledged that people who aren't talking okay. That wraps things up you could check out Scott Story on. Cnn Dot Com if you have any questions. His twitter at the daily charge or leaves voicemail at eight six two two zero five zero one three for the data charge. Roger Chang.

08/06 - Microsoft pauses iOS xCloud plans and Final Fantasy VII HD is coming to Game Pass this month

"Welcome to the gaming ride home podcast for Thursday August? Sixth. I Kyle Hilliard from here's a whole bunch of video game stuff that happened recently ex cloud Microsoft game. Streaming Service. Is Not, coming to Iowa estimates at least not near the plan to launch dark siders genesis the original final fantasy seven and more are coming to gain pass and Microsoft and celebrates team's leaving the subscription service of the we're unexpected song super smash brothers ultimate added a new minor stage with the latest update and epic Games store is experimenting with a free weekly video game sick. XBOXES X. Cloud streaming service is probably not coming IOS. I- commiserated recently about how ex cloud the streaming service that will optimistically let you play xbox games on any compatible device via online streaming technology was not announced for IRS devices. Of which I am a user of, while I type up this script on a Mac book while listening to music but air pods apple has always been stingy about third party companies releasing streaming like software on its platform. It was an issue on live struggled with when it was trying to get its early attempt at st into the hands of more people and even today despite being fully publicly available. There is no Google Stadia IOS APP apple has just clearly not comfortable. With game streaming for some reason and resort, it seems Microsoft is abandoning its efforts to release x cloud on the APP store. The Verges Tom Warren reported on the unfortunate turn of events and wrote Microsoft has ended its ex cloud game streaming test for devices. Today, the software giant has been testing X. Cloud on I us in a very limited way over the past few months, but made it clear. The service would only be launching on android earlier this week Microsoft had. Informed X. Cloud testers that the preview would end on September eleventh, but only the android preview will continue. Until next month, our project X cloud preview test flight period has ended on IOS and we are focused on delivering cloud gaming as part of xbox game pass ultimate to android customers. Beginning September fifteenth says a Microsoft spokesperson in a statement to the verge. It's our ambition to scale cloud gaming through xbox game pass available on all devices that stories linked in the shouts. It's really disappointing for me as my plan has always been to use x cloud on my phone I'm very clearly a pathetic apple fan boy. So I'm not ready to wholesale switch over to Android as a result of this news, but I would consider potentially buying an android device and using it like I would a hand held gaming machine. Maybe basically make that it's explicit purpose I doubt it will come to that. But I do hope that apple relaxes a little bit and. It up for more streaming options. In the future, I would love to have both stadia and ex cloud on my phone. Also, thanks to at assumed Gamer for pointing me toward that update on twitter I appreciate it. Microsoft is bringing final fantasy, seven dark siders genesis and others to gain pass this month. Microsoft has announced the next batch of game pass games and there's some really good stuff in there or at least some stuff I am excited about dark siders genesis and the dark pictures anthology man of Madonna or coming to xbox console game pass day I actually visited the Developer Syndicate for game informer before the announcement of dark siders genesis to check out the game and it was cool trip I liked the dark siders series a lot. But I have only played about an hour or two of Genesis. It's one that's on my backlog, but it's near the top of that stack. The dark pictures anthology men of medicine I played with my wife and we had a good time. It's a game that is well suited for Co op but not in the both players are holding a controller kind of Co op more the One person playing. But you're both making decisions kind of Co op I definitely preferred the developers previous horror game until dawn I'm actually more excited about the next dark pitchers anthology entry but man of Madonna is worth playing. If you're looking for a good horror experience, it lurks below trail makers. Undermine and Zeno crisis are all also coming to gain pass console and PC today I'm not super familiar with any of these. It lurks below is a little like Tarare in that. It is a two D platformer where you can dig and explore a randomly generated environment. Trail makers has a bit of a banjo nuts and bolts vibe to it where it looks like your exploring some kind of alien environment as a crashed astronaut but you can build and tweak a vehicle essentially made out of Lego parts in order to achieve various tasks. Undermine is actually out today and it reminds me of enter the Gun Jin. It has an overhead perspective and follows characters fighting their way through a series of mines despite the name Similarity Zeno crisis has nothing to do with Zeno Blade or Zeno Gears, but rather is a throwback twin stick shooter that is basically a game based on the movie aliens. But without the official license, you are fighting monsters that look suspiciously like Zeno Morphs as Marines who look suspiciously like the Marines, from the movie aliens, it's a very old school very Super Nintendo Co op shooter arguably the big one though is final fantasy seven HD, which is coming to console. And PC game pass on August thirteenth. Now, this is not final fantasy seven remake, which is coming to xbox one at some point. This is the HD port of the original final fantasy seven, which has all kinds of awesome bonuses like the ability to just give yourself a bunch health in the middle of a fight or speed things up I. believe it also has achievements, which is nice as is always the case with game pass updates. There are some games leaving the subscription service serving as a stark reminder that when you consume media through subscription services, you do not own the media and it can be taken away from you anytime without notice. But Microsoft is nice enough to at least offer some notice. In fact, they're weirdly really leaning into the whole idea of games leaving gain pass something comparable like netflix never celebrates movies and TV shows leaving its service choosing to let subscribers assume their favorite media will always be available on the service but along with detailing every month what's leaving? Microsoft released this song today, which I will play in full because it is weird. Sank. Sees. But sometimes. Choice. Do this. Play before it goes. Up for leaving soon, supported that you know. I. Ask. Your favorite game and play it for the. Fan. Goodbye game. Love you love. That song was released today on xboxes official Youtube Channel at the time of this writing it has over thirty four thousand views. It's very weird but back to the main point, all of these Games are leaving xbox Game Pass on August Fourteenth Devil may cry five on Console Yoku Island Express on Consul NPC, which serves a good reminder that I need to play more yokels island express kingdom come deliverance is leaving on Console NPC's space. Hulk tactics is leaving on PC and where the water tastes like wine is leaving pc on August fourteenth. There's. Actually, a great post mortem from the creator of where the water tastes like wine John. Nord Haagen where he talks about how the game unfortunately did not do well release. It's unfortunate because the game is an experimental generally well liked game. It just wasn't a commercial success but the nice thing about Nord Huggins Post Mortem is he was very honest about why he thinks that was the case and it's interesting to hear about the trials and tribulations the game experienced I have that postmortem linked in the show notes if you wanted to check it out. The Super Smash Brothers ultimate has been updated version eight point, one point zero and it added a new stage super smash brothers ultimate got an update recently, which is not uncommon. It happens often as the developers add new spirits and apply various balanced patches I mean it's up to eight point zero. At this point, the vague patch notes usually read something like the online user experience has been adjusted, which is one of the notes in the recent patch. But this one did have a little something extra in the form of a new stage called the small battlefield. I grabbed my switch downloaded the patch and sure enough there is a new stage called the small battlefield and guess what? It's small. It's actually not that small, but it's basically the stage battlefield but without the third higher up platform, it's a small update, but it's nice to have that as an option for stage selection. They just need to add polka floats now, and we'll be all set. Here's what released today along with some other various tidbits. D First episode of a game called three out of ten surprise released today on the epic game store exclusively, it's not totally clear how the game play works from the trailer, but it is narrative driven. The press release describes the game as a quote episodic, playable Sitcom about life at the world's worst game development studio, it follows a fictional developer called shovel works that is. Desperately trying to release a game that reviews better than its current surge of two out of ten. It's an interesting idea and premise for a game that looks like it might have some tell tale inspirations maybe some adventure game inspirations, the developer terrible Posture Games actually create a tower of guns and mother gunship. So this is definitely a new unexpected Janet for them, which is exciting. The plan is to release new episodes every week. Until September third and the first episode is out. Now, the whole series will apparently be free, which is impressive. I. Guess Epochs sees it as a good way to get people to return to the store front I'm curious to check it out brawl Hala. The kind of like smash brothers Platformer brawler thing from ubisoft that has something like fifty playable characters including entrusting guest characters from cartoon network shows like adventure time and Ben Ten. Is out today on both android and iphone it seems like the kind of game that would be hard to play with touchscreen but it will have controller support, which is good. If you download play the mobile version within the next two weeks, you will get a free skin doom eternal and the elder scrolls online are both coming to xbox series accent playstation five. This isn't too surprising I imagine a lot of these current Gen. Games will be making their way to the next generation, but there have not been a ton of announcements yet from the press release players who own or purchase either title on Xbox one or station for will be able to upgrade for free to the xbox series x and playstation five versions respectively when those versions are available additionally, our teams are working hard to ensure both titles will support backwards compatibility when the new consoles launch. The press release also says they will have specific details about what upgrades those games will receive in the future and though they are not ready to announce which other games will this treatment. Bethesda did write quote we can confirm we are committed to offer free upgrades for current generation console owners of existing but those titles we bring forward into the next generation of consoles I think the big surprise there is that the elder scrolls. Online is getting next-gen port before Sky Room I suppose though that if and when skyrocket does get to playstation five series ex but FESTA would probably want to give it a pretty significant overhaul or maybe they just want to focus on the oldest girl's six right now which that would be great too serious. Sam Four has released eight for Steam Google Stadia? It is releasing on September twenty fourth and then also finally out today. which isn't a game but is game related. The final episode of poke on twilight wings is online. It's an animated pokemon series that is separate from Ash Ketchum ongoing adventures and takes place in sword and shields. Gala region episodes have been releasing on. Youtube for free about once a month but today marks the conclusion of the series. My daughter has been watching them so I. AM excited to see the show come to its conclusion. That's it for gaming news today it's sort of by the time you're listening to this Sony's state of play we'll have aired is airing or maybe is about to air. So if it feels like I am ignoring some potentially interesting playstation news no that I, got this episode out the door before it went live feels kind of silly considering the time line of the episode to make predictions but. I don't think there will be any huge announcements. There will be some exciting stuff probably related to smaller games or games that have already been announced. But Sony has already kind of set the expectations low. I will have a full report on the stream tomorrow. So look out for that. Also I guess Dr Disrespect is back online streaming on youtube or something at the time of this writing, it is just a lot of teases. So nothing is set quite yet. Still, have no idea why he was banned from twitch though I made some more progress in paper Mario the Origami King last night beat another boss solve some puzzles the more I play it the more I like it. But I, I still don't know if I'M GONNA make it to the end I am tempted to start playing cross code, which I hear is very good and then just let those two games kind of Duke it out over who will receive my attention if you. Have corrections or just feedback in general, feel free to send me tweets or em's to either at Kyle Hilliard or at gaming ride home or you can send an email to kyle at ride home dot Info P-, and please consider leaving review for the podcast wherever you listen to it you can also check out my twitter Account Kyle impersonator I am playing through metal gear rising for vengeance.

"Hello and welcome to the polly gun and show and i'm here with allegra frank. Hello chelsea start. Hello wow another week down getting up into the game of the year season. Everyone is busy playing so many games chelsea. What did you do this week. I unplugged when i went off the grid and i went to the catskills and i didn't play a single goddamn gay. Oh shit franken swerve baby and you know so great. There was no cell reception airbnb and tell me about it. How was it was magical. You okay so first thing yeah. It was beautiful forest. It was seventy d degrees five perfect temperature. The perfect temperature i went to a farmer's market bought tomatoes and pesto and a bunch of cheese though yeah and then we went to new york's tiniest creamery which specifically yes. That's what it will. That was that's it's title because the name of the creamery creamery is the dirty girl kramer thirty. I was like who's the dirty girl in this situation but i got pedal realized you went to my house and we in your high really so many goats i hate i pet so many goats and a good dog and a goat cheese and yogurt and goat milk. Oh my god god that sounds absolutely perfect and i'm really really jealous. I had a horrible realization this weekend that an entire summer has gone by it is now september and i did not spend a single evening watching the firefly's in central park and i don't know how it happened except of do know how it happened. It's called rehearsal will and being really really busy for the earlier part of the summer but i'm mad about it. You guy not over yet. Yes summer's just because labor day has happened doesn't mean the firefly's just disappeared. I'm burning on my white clothes. I'm no longer the may queen <hes> you're right though the firefly's might still be there. It's not cold yet. It's definitely not cold yet. Anand's next week i will have evenings back so maybe i can go to the park but who knows who knows if three years now three years running i've lived in this goddamn city and i've said i'm gonna do something fun. I'm going to get out of the city for the summer three the years in a row. I have not done it failure. You went to italy. That's i'm taking a weekend trip upstate. This was look at a lake and eat goat cheese. This was literally the first time i've done this by the way and i've lived in nine years in new york. I'm glad that they're still there is still thirty. Wow ouch geez and why did it have to go. After thirty <hes> i could have lived in new york nine years and still been twenty five who knows but i'm not i'm <hes> and yes it was really fantastic and i just was like mad that i had to come back because why why do i need cell reception when acute dogs to pet. I read a piece in the car today. Were they were interviewing <hes> my isaac and tolentino tolentino and ashley feinstein about how the internet has broken their brains <hes> and it was very i related to it a lot because it's all about like the ways that they're thinking thinking has changed and their memory attention span has changed in their years being online <hes> and also their guilt about like building careers online as well because they're so inextricable from the internet and i was like damn i locked out of twitter immediately. I feel that completely and i felt like a you know it's just sometimes twitter is such a depressing place. I have this big struggle of like. I should be on twitter morio. I mean everyone who follows me knows. I don't tweet already but i like. I always want like i should be on twitter more. I should be the active and saying things and i'm like no everything say is stupid. Just like everything else. Everyone says on twitter and it makes me unhappy to be there. That's all a waste of energy <music> like waste of brilliance waste of brilliance and it was just really nice to be like oh. I don't like nobody can reach me if they need and and i don't have to deal with like looking at shit and i was like all right and i made i made a bunch of shit. I made it very good. <hes> custom simple syrup for some great cocktails. I made it was like really just like oh. I'm going to kind of relax. That's awfully their thing to do. Sometimes is just put my phone on airplane for like twenty four hours. Which is my attempted simulating this experience but i think a crucial part of it is also like just not being in the city yeah which part word really hard <hes> i mean also like i i you can do this on a train technically but i can't drive so i had to find and people who wanted to drive <hes> yes the other crucial part of vacations while the rest of us stayed inside all week. I'm so proud of i mean you no. I'm not trying trying to show up here like some holy being like you guys the woods. Chelsea is projecting in on a beam of light. She is still l. in the woods but she has mastered astro communication forget. She has no service that'd be great. Telecommunications like telecommute now just come to the office projecting absolutely perfect perfect. Well allegra <hes> you something that <hes> i have desperately wanted to do this weekend. You watch the new cristal series on netflix i did i started started. It and i actually watched the movie. 'cause i'd never seen it. I'd never seen the dark crystal <hes> because i mean i i like the the muppets right and i like sesame street but this is only very tangentially related to that in the dark crystal and yeah so it's a jim henson in produced feature film from nineteen eighty two. It's my friend was describing it as like jim henson trying to do a weird puppet version of star wars and the lord of the rings. I guess yeah i feel it yeah. It's like a dark christo was. It's like a dark ethic. Fantasies end to see sort of where you know. Everything is puppets and it's about this world called throb that has been subsumed by darkness because they're crystal. Which is there sort of animating life. Force has been tainted by evil specifically sc cs. Who are these really cool like grossberg bird things who are basically taking the essence out of the other dominant race in the world which is the gulf ling and they at this point can have pretty much killed all the gambling. There's only we think one gulflink left <hes> like the dirtiest thing that you've ever cuss soon. Okay so that's the thing right so i you hate fantasy. I hate fantasy so i've been trying to reconcile why i liked. I liked the the movie okay but i love the show which works as a prequel to the movie where there are lots of guelph ling and the sexiest aren't while they're evil but like the gulling don't know it yet it because they haven't killed all of them yet <hes> but yeah i was like why do i like the so much there's creatures this lore. There's weird made up language. I hate eight lord of the rings type stuff. I don't. I hate game of thrones type stuff but i think it's super. I really like it in that. It's this this very simple and kind of easy to understand setup. Honestly it's like there's one good guy race and one bag. I race and then like okay. I get it like it's not like. There's like oh and then also the still rocky language and the blah blah's and the white walkers and the shit and i'm like yeah. I don't understand this is crap but in this it's just like there's these guys who look kind of cute they have like cute elf ears and they don't look like gross ugly humans like their kilo puppets and then there's is these guys were ugly the funny looking and they're all animal. How do you feel about star wars all the things. I love star wars but that's jess space. That's the other thing. I love space operas but i do not like <hes>. This is so fancy so anything that's like high hi l. the thing i think i was watching what i was saying my friend while we were watching the movie and the show especially the show was this is like a p._g. Would wanna play because i love j. R._p._g.'s to ray so fan which are also fantasy like i love j. R._p._g.'s and honestly i think it comes down to like aesthetic for me like i liked the dark crystal aesthetic just like i like jay r._p._g. Aesthetic because it's like more cartoony it's not like super her <hes> realistic and you're trying to get me to buy that there. Are these like humans with british accents in year eight hundred we should get you to watch the lord of the rings animated made movie from god that he didn't know way. I liked the hobbit one. I watched that in third grade. It was great. Here's what i like about the dark crystal. I i saw the movie was a few years ago fizz gig yeah. We'll see he is a small hairball with a little round is we'll round yellow eyes and a big mouth. They yeah three sets of teeth. He can really okay so he is simone. Yes he's very loud. He's very good and what i've seen of the dark crystal the series i saw video the had multiple fisk aches and they were all yelling at the same time. Yeah not made me very happy. They're really cute. They're cute and it's honestly like a funny show to like freaking dark because it's about the impending genocide of this race. It's also like the characters are very likable. <hes> most of them are mostly. Heroes are women. I'm in which is cool. A women are actually inherently more powerful than the men because they can fly so i like that and there's this wildly all-star cast like jason tonight. Six simon pegg elise uva cans irate. Jason isaacs back up <hes>. He's the emperor me remind myself that. I am in fact thinking of the same yeah malfoy. Tell me about how jason isaacs is the emperor. The sounds amazingly. I have have the best ask voice cast mark. Hamill is the scientists <hes> he's really good. I mean yes mark hamill's just bringing but best voice actor simon pegg though i was like because i had ended a thing for vox dot com about how great the schedules are and we called out <hes> simon pegg as the chamberlain but i was like wait hey which one's the chamberlain while i was still trying to figure out there because none of them's online peg you would not believe it scientific like he's doing this amazing creepy villain voice where i'm. I'm like why that simon pag. It's so good aquafina zona. She's great iron eggerton. He's the main. Karen sandberg isn't it. Apparently i haven't gone through <hes> so yeah. It's like really fun to watching the sets are all beautiful because it's mostly practical effects right like they actually built it because it's still mostly band crush jason isaacs and my boy crush taryn eighteen ah yes it's so good. It's really really fun and i'm glad they went with the practical effects. Though since as with jim henson was all about yes a human it would feel wrong. It was a big c._g. Yeah yeah. I can't even imagine that 'cause the puppetry is so crucial to that aesthetic. I don't know if would translate as well into c._j. Or animation can we just back up an unpack the fact that you'd like this fantasy series because it has a binary stick racial sister. I didn't know what he's talking about. I was talking to my friend and i was saying the same thing because i was like you know. I don't really like fantasy listen. I like that. This is a really simple setup of one race. Good one race batter then. I was like holy shit. That's not good. I was just like feel to be fucking walking. Cancelled allegra differed well that is literally. I mean yeah. I was just going to let that live. There are also different species. Okay species est. I like i'm better than on insect. Sorry i am i what you can you can say is that you just like something that is less complicated than game of thrones or lord the rings which both of them are very yeah. It's that it's not that it's a binary. Racist system are more. It's a lot less complicated. We all all the different kinds of thinking that led to the extinction of the dodos allegra frank in you should be ashamed roussell f- moving no not really. I think it's funny. Hey i'm your editor in chief. The verge host of the verge cast we revamping the more and more lately and coming out that besides twice a week sometimes even at third bonus episode on tuesdays and talked to influential people around the world attack like microsoft founder bill gates and other tech exactly founder of lime scooters the c._e._o.

If you subscribe to the virtues wherever you get your podcast bluff listen and join us so again subscribe to the virtuous wherever you get your podcast. We'll see they're all right what i did all weekend. Tell me i want to hear all about this. I played congenial insurable well. I watched someone play a little good. Were excited to hear your control. The game that polygons entire staff is obsessed sussed with. I'm going to start playing this week. We all losing our shit over it so this is a game from remedy remedy entertainment who made the max payne games lameck and the day <hes> and it is about alan wake have you never i miraculously have never played alan wake. Even though i believe it is a lot like twin peaks but it isn't like the extreme stream thing that would be your shit because it's about an author extreme thing that would be my shit. It's the most serious and author in. It's about this kind of evil force taking over town. It's very twin peaks. You know it's about kind of like driving out. This darkness got this amazing. A villain named mr scratch. Isn't it northwest to awesome. That sounds very much. Shit is just like deeply weird and unsettling and remedies atmospheres. I'm sorry you're alien actually because alan it's good. It's an old game though really her effect because the other thing that i have been doing this week is <hes> rewatching twin peaks for the i counted the fifth time <hes> because i was editing a video and i just had it on in the background because i'm a monster and now i'm like halfway through season two again. If you really watching something simone. Do you continue like how well do you rewatch something also something in the background if it's something you're invested in twin peaks <hes> with twin peaks. It's pretty easy just because i've watched it so many times i probably wouldn't watch something like miss fisher's murder mysteries as much as i love that as much as i've also seen that like five times just because it's each episode is a little bit more <hes> engaging on like a scene by seeing level because there's always something going on and there's always chemistry between friday and jack whereas twin peaks like this lovely up and down flow of aw cooper is here. I'm paying attention. Oh we're back to at nadine. I'm zoning out now off off of lovely peaks and valleys actually kind of enjoy nadine's from season to but <hes> it's so dumb peaks than valleys of <hes> attentions. I find it very <hes> really lovely to have on in the background actually and totally control all is very similar to that control is game about a woman named jesse who walks into the federal zero bureau of control one day looking for her brother and finds this mysterious organization in a complete lockdown and people have been possessed by this force called history look super creepy and they're hanging out on the ceiling <hes> and her journey through that space and <hes> finding a place in that organizations and she's also been touched by the pera natural <hes> and that's about as much up the plot as i'll say that's kind of what becomes evident in the first <hes> session you'll play in the first twenty minutes or so <hes> and in this it's similar to twin peaks in that so much of what is <hes> paranormal is left unexplained and just completely outside <hes> our her ability to comprehend it as human beings and i fucking love. I love it so much because one of my favorite favorite favorite things about twin peaks is just it's like. I'm setting aside the return here because they don't give a shit about it anymore. Sorry the original. Two seasons are so much better. <hes> is just that it becomes very clear at least to me watching the show that twin peaks is a place where there is our mundane human world and it is nestled up against this strange unknowable magical world and sometimes those two overlap in ways where people can pass from one plane to the other without realizing that it's happened and encounter beings that are in human <hes> but appear to be human and is just kind of never never really explained away. There's no reason for it's happening here happening in now or why these people are taking the forms that they do and i love that so much i love how surreal it is and <hes> it's. That's a fucking delight slots. I feel about control and twin peaks at the same time okay. I just wanted to go back to what i describe. What because i think that was the most it was like the most shrill allowed us what i've screamed at a long time and it's ringing in my head and i'm like what forgotten baby sean at me. <hes> i actually actually in chelsea. I'm eager to hear your thoughts and questions because i was playing through my avatar which is patrick. Gill is is letting him play while i watched which was how i've played lost games and <hes> i think a lot of what you're saying resonates with me and like obviously obviously i really liked twin peaks too and i like the sort of like unexplained supernatural <hes> impact or effects especially of twin peaks but there's something about this game. It's just not really clicking with me right now. We played about two hours though so we're not not like super i think i know this is actually one of those games where i think you need to get hands on allegra like actually playing so so my experience i i did see it a preview event egg d._c. Which was a very weirdly run because it started with fifteen minutes of the design director. You're telling me about the three pillars of the game and i was like this is terrible. Do not do this. I sorry what were the remote <hes> because because that's not a way to present a game where human can understand it and so then i started watching some and i was like this looks cool but also weird and then i played it and i think what soma like there's a lot of really amazing textual stuff happening in the game but also just the way controls like can flying you. You have all these psychic abilities. You can fly up in the air. I kept apparently the developer. I found it very weird that i kept using the malay punch but it was so cool because the the his have a way of when you kill them they exploded and all these crystals which is of really cool graphical effect but like punching so they explode is so fun. Yeah patrick wouldn't do that that much and i was like why felt so good and they like like put you should shoot them. I'm like but i can punch them. Which is is it. He requests to get kills with the service weapon. No i think he just like when i think thing for a lot of people when you have a gun. That's your shirt use that right and it's supposed to getting up close and punching someone but you know how i play things but i think that's actually an interesting point of like it feels. This game feels amazing like that. That feeling of flying jesse around is actually one of the best mechanics look similar to the swinging spiderman yeah. It's like i can clearly see these things happening and i was watching like the cruel of these powers early sort of like learning you know going through them and like oh now she can fly now. She does this thing and like. I think she can like sort of control things with her she can can she basically has yet aleka nieces very strong telekinesis though because she can fling stuff at enemies yeah she can pull pull all of their attacks and hold them in the air and flying coming back so it was interesting watching that's because patrick he had like a separate playthrough then started on a different profile so i could see from the beginning but he wasn't like learning with me eh then because he already knew how to use her powers so he was like very quickly moving into like i've got now. I'm going to shoot okay and flying now. I can do this now. Versus gaffe ironically replaying. I would probably get that immediate sense of like oh my tactile abilities are increasing and figuring them out but she has this like extremely strong <hes> sense of <hes> power already yeah. I know it roll over them. I know i advocated last week of having someone else drive games that are hard but i think control you would like if you played it yeah because i am i am very i think the cinematography and art direction of are really interesting. Yeah i love every time a new area and it shows you. The scare taxed the skier texts that does scare text when a new area that's huge giant that you and i i kind of love and also thinking in the very beginning when you're still walking around and it's really you're on this one floor but he'd go. I think in a room and when you come out like the lake floor basically flipped yeah architecture. Just kinda changed a lot in very subtle ways. I think that's really cool to and also you're supposed to. There's an article on polygon about reading all the notes memos. You can double stroke spic the laura so good good. Yeah that's amazing. The remedy has done it again in luzon it again. It's nice because they the last game that they made was. It's not great quantum break one break. Yes not replace that one. It was extremely ambitious because they were trying to do a t._v. Show with an xbox games you would. You're supposed to play play a chapter of the game than watch section of the t._v. Show and i can't remember the t._v. Show made like i don't think it re- like they're very very difficult because i do also like along things like arsenic because you mentioning the t._v. Show reminds me that another of the things i did like in not find willfully obtuse was the little old like video segments darling yeah read those early fully. I heard very lost esque. It has all of these <hes> mm actual video like filming a real live human being segments with scientists where they're giving exposition on some of the freaky stuff that's happening <hes> while the magical objects and nobody understands and it's just it's so cool to stumble upon that <hes> f. m. v. esque video in the game aim world i ab. It'll be like being projected with an old film projector onto a canvas and you're just watching it as the character. It's so good <hes> <hes> it is for me like it is right in the middle of the ven diagram where it is aesthetically one hundred percent my shit and then like you said chelsea i love the way that it plays and that <hes> is not necessarily something. I got out of it either. When i saw the three demo a couple years ago and then even this year when i <hes> i was like posted the footage on our guides channel of our game capture for me three and i was like this looks but playing it. I'm just like oh. Oh my god. I need to go back and go back for more. I love this yeah when i first heard the name. The federal bureau of control of is like this is dumb. Show yeah like i was just like what i don't know how it works. I'm really no i'm gonna. I think i'm going to start this game tonight. And then we can talk about it next week because i really i think i think like ten people in bali on a plate it in new orleans losing their mind. There's like yet clearly game of the year your level stuff very excited. What's your favorite like small detail about this game simone. <hes> i love the videos i love the architecture. I love man. What is my favorite small detail. I think it might be also like all the weird old technology that's around and the videos that you find are very very fun is the doctor darling is that that's played by like a recognizable actor. I don't know his name but i've you boyfriend okay. Is he gonna look him up definitely dubbed over right. I love when they do that. That's so good. It's like a creepy effects which i thought it was supposed to be someone recognizable. It's not as cute as himself. Sorry sorry no <hes> yeah. He's not any one recognizable but he's very good <hes> so yes play control is very good. It's undoubtedly going to be on our humidity your list <hes> <hes>. I'm very confident saying that <hes> but we'll see we'll see how it all shakes out. This is cara swisher. I wanna tell you about out my podcast rico decode every week we have candid in depth conversations with people like elon musk nancy pelosi and kathy griffin we talk about how they got to where they are today okay and how their work is changing our world. New episodes of rico decode are released every monday and wednesday and we often have bonus episodes on friday. Subscribe for free to be the first to hear them on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast app allegra final thing you're. You're also playing pokemon masters this week. Yes that's the mobile game right is up in arms about it well. Those people can put. They're freaking arms down. Please because i'm enjoying it so it's love latest nintendo d._n._a. D._n._a. <hes> collab- and it's the first real like pokemon game by the pok mon company that actually like isn't just you know a match three year. Whatever the mobile noble game <hes> so poke on masters is it's less about the pokemon and more about the characters in polk amman as in the trainers so you start up the game and you create your own trainer and then you pair up immediately with brock and misty who probably know from the anime or from the first frigging being pokemon games because they're also in the games and not just the <hes> but it's cute because obviously it is a nod to the cartoon where you're basically the ash ketchum of this group. Wow how bold yeah ash ketchum could be replaced and you have to do so every basically this game is based around this thing called sync payers where where it's like a trainer and their partner pok mon like you don't like a crew or grow a collection pok mon. There's no catching or anything like that. <hes> <hes> everyone kind of just has like one partner so like rock has an onyx and that's his partner and the way the game play actually works is it's three on three battles. I don't actually love the battle system but it's three on three battles and there's like a gauge that goes so like when it fills up up you can use an attack like a special attack and you can choose your enemy target and there's weaknesses. That sort of thing is the same but it's all based on a gauge. It's not like the traditional turn based thing but when the <hes> when you have attacked enough you fill up the sinkhole to sink meter and that's really fun because that's when it shows the whole conceit conceit of like it's about the character and their partner pokemon so the sink moves that you then do are like misty's is called like like tomboyish water beam or soiling. This is beautiful quick cut scene where to her and her. I think she has a stormy and they're just doing some weird like dance kind. Anything and sarmi does the attack while this is like the fusion dance gin you force kind of team rocket shenanigans. It is it's like there really is so much charm to it and the animation is beautiful like it looks so good these characters in all the models are just so good and it has like a little a bit of a firearm womb feel to it <hes> probably more so fire them heroes than a real firearm one game but you can you basically collect these sync pairs which are the characters characters and you do these little side stories where you can get to know them better and so everyone has like a pretty developed personality and there's a really good sense of humor for because you run into all these other trainers kind of scattered around in like the main base area would just like a big pokemon center type thing so i'm really enjoying how it's deepening the the personalities and whatnot of the trainers because in the pok mon games like the traditional ones they're pretty much relegated to like three lines signs of flavor texture. Yeah they're cardboard cutouts kind of yeah but like sometimes the lines are really funny or like the gym. Leaders have like a pretty distinct trait eight or something but you just fight them and move on but now like the gym leaders can be your partners like i am <hes> my favorite leader from pok mon silver from joe is whitney and she's actually one of the first like characters you get for your team so now i get to like get to know her better which is really cool because i love her as a character later. Is it safe to play if someone's already into pok mon. Go <hes> yeah because it's like the two this pokemon go which has no personality galaxy or anything big. One is a checklist of a video game is deeply boring. I it's a very fun checklists. I was literally late to work today. 'cause i was walking around and playing football. Don't worry but <hes> yeah. It's like that's all about the collecting yeah but this is all about the polk on this is all about the people behind that okay and i remember i wrote this article for polygon about how you should name your poke them on and they they don't necessarily do this in the game but i like that like all the pokemon clearly have their own personalities like they're gendered as opposed to just being referred to as objects like you know whitney the character alike. She's like oh yeah. My girl tank over here. She really likes playing outside and and she's at the beach today because she brought me here because i'm like well. Yeah you're fran. It's really sweet you. <hes> i think the thing that people bowl are up in arms about is it does have a gotcha system. Yeah julia was mentioning lack. She's really into gotcha game so i do believe in referred her on the stuff but <hes> you have to kind of like roll for the let's. You just can't sit still ooh. I'm sorry but you go play pastors to roll for new like sink pair characters and you know if you don't get the one one keep rolling. Can you buy the ones you want. You can't do anything. No wonder people are mad. Yes so you can spend like you can spend in game currency but you're obviously not going to get a ton and i think there's a limit to how many times you can do that a day or you can use paid crystals or whatever the heck recalled and again. It's still randomize skin. I play this off line. Do i need an internet connection. <hes> you know no. I i think you probably do because all the nintendo games need internet yeah i. That's how i feel too. I haven't really it's like a kind of game. I wouldn't play on the train or anything though like i literally play it on my couch while watching t._v. So but what if you read the fairy you have internet on the ferry banu. I'm just saying i don't know it's you play it in a house. I would say it with about in your bed. There's also we're dead spot in the middle of the water in in the dead in the dead. Thank you for helping complete that ryan <hes> but yeah i like it. I don't care about the gotcha stuff as much 'cause. I'm cool with you know. Just just take him up. The game gives me. They also give characters <hes> and i. I don't know i've just started so it's not like i've been rolling that much getting annoying characters <hes> <hes> how many characters arthur. I don't actually know yet but i have a feeling probably a decent amount because it's like all the gym leaders all the elite four other trainers yeah so it's yeah i like it and mostly. It's just really pretty to look at. That's awesome yeah weights. Perhaps apps ogun noticing speaking of gotcha characters. Did you see they're adding baby. Mario to dr martin good headline mo's like dr mario world update date allows like two babies to be certified medical professional surfers mario and luigi <hes> i mean there's as a luma of the doctor in that game. Anything can happen stone even angry country every country with free medical degrees for all. Oh well. Thank you so much everyone. This has been our show for the week.

A referendum on Netanyahu?

PRI's The World

46:24 min | 11 months ago

A referendum on Netanyahu?

"The following was recorded at four. PM Eastern time it's election day in Israel. Some voters fear that their secular way of life is under threat so we are scared scared evening tel-aviv. It's the beginning of the process and we don't stop stopped here then down the road. Why didn't we stop it there also the US and the Taliban were negotiating but where do you go to meet with a group that isn't internationally recognized iced. They also agreed that the Taliban should have an edge just where they can find them where they can meet them and Sarah Thomas this becomes the first person to swim the English Channel Four Times. The current pushing all over right now is totally raw water. Just wow I'm Carol hills all those stories and more ahead on the world. I'm Carol Hills and this is the world it's election day in Israel early. Exit polls are coming in and it's looking like a dead heat between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his main rival Benny Ganz both Netanyahu against his party's look to be on track to win just more than thirty seats each in parliament's. That's far short of what either would need to form a government on their own. Official results are expected. Tomorrow is the second national vote in less than six months. The Roads Matthew Bell is on the ground in Israel and has been talking to a range of voters. If there's an emotion that captures this campaign season it's fear and loathing mm-hmm that is a last minute plea on the morning of Election Day here in Tel Aviv against Benjamin Netanyahu. It's an SUV with the giants speakers on the roof signs on the side that say crime minister in an Israeli flag on the back that says I have no other country full disclosure. I'm going to simplify generalize here but let's break down the handful of major political camps and listen to what they're most anxious about. TEL AVIV SEBASTIAN FOR SECULAR LIBERALS THEY call it the bubble beaches nightlife cafes but lots of Televisa's feel that their way of life is under the threat from the religious right Gol and may tell Havi worry that freedom of religion especially the freedom to not be religious is slipping away in Israel along with basic human rights for Jews and Palestinians staff. We are scared scared even in Tel Aviv. It's the beginning of the process and if we don't stop it here then down the road. What would say why didn't we stop there? One of the rising political scars for the secular leftist stub shaft fear. She was surrounded by supporters when she showed up to vote at Tel Aviv polling station. Shapiro told me her her supporters have plenty to fear to have you know gay marriage divvy marriage public transportation on Saturday freedom to leave your life life. Live your religion spirituality or non religion the whether you want the government is doing something completely different and slowly people start to feel that it's becoming insane. The the ultra Orthodox religious camp is scared to a campaign message from Shos. One of the two big ultra-orthodox parties says they won't trample all the sabbath. Give them an answer at the ballot box. Shos activists Avraham Yitzhak off pointed to a group of left-wing activists across the street waving being rainbow flags and said they are the problem. Seattle team Hobday adult Ma'am Ma'am they don't want Judaism. They want to erase choosy. Judaism some but this is a Jewish country. The next political camp is made up of National Religious Jewish Israelis. That's a broad group that Netanyahu has relied on to stay in government for thirteen years it includes supporters of his Likud party along with hardliners from the far right who favored tougher policies he's toward the Palestinians and annexation of the israeli-occupied West Bank. Whatever the the the election results are tomorrow. maybe the best thing for the nation of Israel for the state of Israel and for the world speed Newman is an American born Israeli who's been living here for thirty years. His biggest worry would be a left-wing government government coming to power and giving the Palestinians a state of their own on what he considers to be God given land. There is no more central place to to the land of Israel then Judea and Samaria that's the core of the land of Israel and without that came as America basically giving up Arlington National Cemetery in Philadelphia and all the the central places that that wh where America was born the other big political camp would be those people of of Palestinian descent their diverse group to several million of them cannot vote because they're not Israeli citizens in the defacto Palestinian capital of Ramallah Hala. Abdurrachman tells me that she remembers well the last time she was able to vote in Palestinian national election that was was two thousand and six sure sure you feel enthusiastic. Pope I feel I have a home can me. Are you jealous in Iran inefficient antibodies that we have no elections through what we have been. Do you think you'll have a chance to vote again in the future maybe are are you hopeful about that now. No Automated Hanoun is an official with the Palestine Liberation Organization. He says whether they like it or not. Palestinians in the occupied territories will feel the impact active Israel's election nephew who an yoed Netanyahu. We're in the worst possible scenario. Hanoun told me Catania who was talking about annexing one third of the West Bank the Americans seem to be willing to go along with this and if Netanyahu wins Hanoun says it's a crisis for us as for the one million or so Arab voters inside Israel many of them feel targeted by the Israeli prime minister her Netanyahu's supported legislation that downgraded the rights of Israel's Arab citizens. It's called the nation state law and Yasser. Fella a dentist in Nazareth worries. It's only going to get worse. If the right wing camp stays in power here where you'll was born and your grandfather there was born. It's not your country and your land what you want more than that. This was a good blow to make aww people lose the faith philosophy. He's not willing to lose faith. That's why he was offering a ride to anybody who needed one today to get to the polls and cast their vote for the world. I'm Matthew Bell. Jerusalem democracy is messy but activists in Hong Kong. Think think it's worth fighting for that's why Hong Kong lawmaker traveled to Geneva this week legislator Tanya Chan pleaded with the UN's top human rights group to investigate police brutality against pro democracy activists Chan says police abuse of protesters and ordinary citizens in Hong Kong is rampant for example a female first eder she was shot by the police with beanbag rounds and blind one of her eyes and recently we can see that even even underage schoolboy just a bystander beaten up by the police with batons and suffered serious injuries juries because I visited him and so far after fourteen weeks of protest over one thousand four hundred people were arrested over for two thousand five hundred teargas cans were used causing serious injuries to a lot of normal civilians as well as protesters so so going back to your request by the U N how did officials at the UN respond to your request. I don't have very encouraging response yet but at least is a start and we'll we'll do more especially as a legislator will do more to communicate with the UN Human Rights Council but for the time being. Isn't it correct to conclude that right now now the UN officials are basically saying you know you're on your own. We can't really help I. Of course I would say is that uphill battle so basically saying we're going to be polite and let you talk talk but we're not that interested. China's diplomatic mission wrote to the United Nations in Geneva asking it to deny you credit nation. They called you a convicted criminal a Oh why I'm convicted due to my participation in the Democratic umbrella movement. I'll cases now waiting for appeal. Will we be heard in February the weekend protests in Hong Kong. They tend to start out peacefully and they break down into chaos and when we saw the photos this this weekend of masked demonstrators throwing petrol bombs outside government headquarters. Do you think this is inevitable that the protests become violent or is it a tactical decision to up the ante after all these weeks and over one hundred days of protest the Chief Executives Carrie Lam finally withdrew the bill after all these weeks and and the extradition bill exactly like strategic night at these protests first-place exactly and at the same time time. We have all four other demands. which is I think very reasonable? So what about the issue of protests turning violent. Do you worry that the protesters are going to alienate supporters if her tests continue to be violent there is no Ledra most of the protesters of very rational they do correct mistakes and learn from the experience and the most important elements is that support from the public so you if the kind of violence or disturbing scenes increasing that would be more difficult for them to maintain the support but at the same time or these can be stifled a government response to our demands positively so what what is the endgame here. Do you feel like the protesters should stay out there until the demands are met even if it gets my aunt well frankly speaking is a question that I've asked ask my friends and other legislators and I think the end gain hopefully is the government can answer our demands positively positively but I wasn't home. I mean they. They certainly haven't her except for the extradition bill. I do agree that we have a we are facing a extremely difficult difficult uphill battle even if they can settle keynotes with quotations settle the protests now. They can't keep the piece for too long. Tanya Chan is a legislative councillor representing Hong Kong Island. She's a founding member of the Civic Party. Thank you so much thank you. Keira hers is an accomplishment for the ages. Yesterday we told you about American Ultra Marathon swimmer Sarah Thomas and her attempt to be the first person ever ever to swim the turbulent English Channel Four Times back and forth back and forth between England and France nonstop. Thomas completed this astonishing astonishing athletic feet overnight the details of her swim are told in numbers fifty four straight hours in the water one hundred thirty four miles one jellyfish interesting to the face Sarah Thomas to talk to the BBC right after finishing in the dark last night coming back from France last time was definitely hard took forever and the current all over right now it quarterly rough water a GPS tracker made it possible for fans to watch Sarah's steady progress. Novice swimmers may have been a bit confused by her route. The currents made it impossible to swim the straightest shortest line Sarah's I four channel crossings look like sweeping parabolic curves and resting during those fifty four hours not an option. It only have ten minutes when you hit each side right but each time I got the other side there wasn't the beach so I just had to touch her and then try and tread water in each something really quick and then start back off off-again. Thomas wasn't alone on her quest. She had a team boating alongside including Elaine Howley herself. An ultra marathon swimmer Howley says five miles from the finish the current shifted and Thomas had to swim directly against it. All the crew could do was cheer on their swimmer. She's hired but David she didn't. They got huge our current. There's one more thing that makes this English Channel record extra extraordinary. Thomas was diagnosed with breast cancer two years years ago. Elaine Holly says that was part of Thomas's motivation really why to prove to ourselves that she was still Sarah Thomas the ultra marathon center despite having entre cancer and Chemo and sales at says she wanted to make sure that it was still something been Shaka do unless you think thorough. Thomas must have immortal psychological powers to persevere she too has human doubts unless you're GONNA go back. When I got back to England I but I should just finish in quit. What am I saying get what you can do. Better you can keep going indeed. She could keep going Sarah Thomas the only person to ever successfully we swim four laps of the English Channel nonstop just amazing. This is the world I'm Carol Hills. This is the world the violence in Afghanistan continues. Afghan presidential elections are coming up at the end of the month in the lead-up has been especially deadly today. A suicide bomber killed at least twenty six people at an election rally for Afghan President Ashraf. Ghani dozens. More were wounded. The Afghan president himself self was unharmed. Ghani actually continued delivering a stump speech after the explosion which struck just outside and open field where the campaign rally was held. Ghani Ghani is seeking a second five-year term. The Taliban has pledged to step up violence to derail the election and there was a second attack today this one in Kabul the Taliban Alabama claimed responsibility for both of today's bombings. This witness described a horrific scene in Kabul mcdonagh in Europe. It's got us around one o'clock clock when suddenly a blast occurred at the entrance of the army recruitment center near the US Embassy. I saw people in human flesh in the Air American forces alongside their Afghan counterparts art have been aggressively attacking the Taliban in recent weeks. This violence has all been happening as a peace plan to end the eighteen year war finally seemed within reach president trump has long said he wants to end American military involvement in Afghanistan. US negotiators had been meeting with Taliban for about a year but earlier this month after an American soldier was killed by the Taliban. The president said that negotiations were dead in terms of advisers. I took my own advice. I like the idea of meeting I've met with with a lot of bad people a lot of good people during the course of the last almost three years and I think meeting is a great thing I think that meeting with there are meetings with war otherwise wars would never end you'd have them go on forever most of the meetings between the US and the Taliban took place in the island highland nation of Qatar in the Persian Gulf American negotiators have come home from Qatar now but for some members of the Taliban Qatar is home. How did that come to to be given that. The Taliban is mainly an Afghan group. The world's shrine Jafari has our story when they in twenty thirteen a group who've taught by men stood around the flagpole in Doha the Qatari capital they raise the Taliban's black and white flag then lined up to pray in this was a big moment a moment that changed how the West negotiate with the Taliban the US others had I tried several times before to sit down with the group says Christian already said of Rice University in two thousand nine there have been attempts by day you too and US officials to establish context with Taliban representatives in Afghanistan leader in two thousand ten the British and Americans reportedly spent a year cultivating cultivating context that could lead them to high ranking members of the Taliban with the help of those contacts they ended up identifying a man called Mullah actor. Mohammad man who they thought was a top todd on either. They paid him large sums of money to keep him interested in the negotiations. Afghan Afghan officials met with four times at the presidential palace in Kabul but shortly after those meetings they discovered that mental was no high-ranking high-ranking Taliban leader it turned out he was a shopkeeper from Pakistan he took the money and vanished those contexts had effectively fooled and the US NATO officials into believing they will representatives. Taliban walked away with large amounts of money by twenty thirteen. The Americans realized that if they were going to negotiate with the Taliban they needed to know who they were talking to many times they were deceived. They didn't know who the presents the Taliban and who is not a real Taliban and that's why they also agreed the Taliban should have an address where they can find find them where they can meet them. Doubled Ademi is an editor for the BBC in London and as reported on the taller about his US came to the conclusion that the group Hoop needed a political office an address really could be found and he had to be outside of Afghanistan in neutral territory. Now you might be thinking taking what country would let the Taliban come in and set up shop. Many countries were interested to host the Taliban or the Taliban political office Turkey United Arab Emirates Qatar and Saudi Arabia what keen to host a group of Taliban why keen on hosting the Taliban as it's because it's a political investment helping America's negotiate an end to one of their longest wars could really bruce a country's image both in the region and in the US but it wasn't a given for any of the countries Turkey was a dejected because Turkey is a member member of NATO and he told the Arabia were considered too close to Americans. I was neutral enough for both off-site and so the Qatari government offered the Taliban fans de Villa on the outskirts of Doha Picture Tan walls large arched windows Islamic Islamic architecture. That's where the Taliban men were raising the flag. When they launched office. I was here ear covering the story for the BBC. It was a big moment and they told me that they hadn't seen this venue before and they were brought coach than what told the this is your new office from the moment. It opened in two thousand thirteen. The Taliban's political office was controversial. The Afghan government was outraged after the group raised its flag that says officials in Kabul feared the Taliban was forming government in exile but the office survived the controversy and became a place where outside negotiators can find the real todd so the members of the political commission and the negotiators. Oh she does have been living in cutter with their families for the past many years joining them in the latest round of talks was caught up on deputy leader Muhammad. Uh Up to a Garni borrowed by that was in prison in Pakistan says job aid who advises the trump administration on Afghanistan he was arrested but the Pakistanis studies for a starting secretive negotiations with the then Afghan President Hamid Karzai but now the Americans wanted him at the table to make sure that any deal would stick the talks collapsed. President trump called them off earlier this month which makes me wonder what's going to happen to. Baroda is the deputy head of the Taliban going to remain a freeman in Doha. I ask Almond is at the moment in Qatar. As far as I know end accu remained areas for the foreseeable future the talks are not necessarily did the talks will very likely resume. The question is not what s it will resume but when it will resume and if the talks to resume at least Americans know where to find the Taliban for the world. I'm sharing Jafari for she'd tahoe still around. He'd want officials to keep talking. The algerian-born Jereon born rocker was never afraid to speak his mind to how was a punk rocker for social justice he spoke out against policy and anti Arab bigotry from the clubs in Paris where he lived to the stage shared with rockstars like rubber plants and Patti Smith Taha also highlighted his north African roots or she Taha died last year at the age aged fifty nine but his label just-released the posthumous record your sweet up week on I'm African. His tune onset takes us to the break a the phone in extreme heat waves and drought crop failures. They're getting worse as the planet warms scientists say we have to act fast. If you do not change course by twenty twenty we just missing the point where we can avoid runaway climate change. We disastrous consequences scientists warn. It's time for action coming up on the world. I'm Carol Hills and this is the world where a CO production of the BBC World Service W. H. in Boston Pri and Pyrex. The clock is ticking faster than we thought if we want to avoid the worst impacts of climate change scientists say we have to make some serious changes. The world needs to slash global carbon emissions nearly in half by twenty thirty. We just eleven years to make those dramatic changes sounds awfully soon but the deadline is actually even sooner all this week will be tackling some key environmental questions leading up to next week's. UN Climate Summit to kick off our special coverage today the world's environment correspondent Carolyn Bieler explains why we have to act faster than we might think uh good good morning last October nine scientists sat down at a table armed with a powerpoint presentation welcome to this press conference of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to present the special report on global warming of one point five degrees. The presentation was pretty dry but the content would end up making a big splash. The scientists laid out how much better off the world will be if we can limit global warming to one and a half degree. Celsius instead of a longtime international national target of two degrees Celsius. Every bit of extra warming makes a difference. This is climate scientist. Hans auto partner one of the panelists that spoke that day the proportion of the world population exposed to climate induced water shortages would be up to fifty percent less one and a half degree Celsius Celsius or two point seven degrees Fahrenheit would mean hundreds of millions fewer people would face extreme heatwaves up to ten million. Fewer people exposed opposed to the risk of rising seas. Some of the world's coral reefs would survive crops would do better to the scientists also found that limiting global warming to one and a half degrees actually still possible but the world would have to cut carbon emissions roughly half by twenty thirty to do you it. If we don't achieve that target it gets really hard. This is Penn State University atmospheric scientist Michael Man if we don't get to that first critical reduction by twenty thirty it becomes very difficult to see away that we can limit warming below that dangerous one and a half degrees Celsius after that u n the report was released last year. The world had a deadline and we started to hear politicians and activists talking about it. We have no more than twelve years. Here's to take incredibly bold action on this crisis. The world is going to end in twelve years. If we don't address climate change are less than twelve years away from not being able to Undo our mistakes that was twenty twenty presidential hopeful Aurora New York Representative Alexandria Oko Cortez and sixteen year old Swedish climate activist Greta Tune Berg now if twenty thirty which is just eleven years away now is the deadline that nature has that we humans have set another another one and it's even sooner twenty twenty specifically. UN Meeting in December of Twenty Twenty just fifteen months away twenty twenty. Wendy is an important year on the path toward global decarbonisation. This is former UN official Christina Gareth's. She presided over the negotiations to reach a global climate pact in Paris in Twenty fifteen countries made promises then about how much carbon they would cut but those pledges don't get us anywhere anywhere near that one point five degree goal and next year is when leaders are asked to make their next round of pledges so twenty twenty is the first time since the Paris agreement that countries will come together to assess how much they've been able to do and how much more they can do in twenty twenty twenty. Most countries are expected to submit more ambitious carbon cutting goals for twenty thirty or say. They're just sticking with the ones they've already got. That's gotten everyone from Prince Charles. Do the secretary general of the United Nations Antonio Gutierrez to name twenty twenty as a make or break year for climate policy see if you do not change course by twenty twenty we missing the point where we can avoid runaway climate change with disastrous consequences for people and all the nets will systems that sustains. Gutierrez is hosting a special Clement Summit next week in New York. He's aiming to get leaders to commit to ambitious new carbon been cutting goals even before that key twenty twenty meeting of course here in the US. There is another reason why twenty twenty is a big deal for climate policy policy. You might have heard something about it the US presidential election even abroad climate experts are paying attention lick scientist Nicholas Huynh A- at the Ronning haning university in the Netherlands we are looking at the election very closely president trump announced two years ago he plans to withdraw the US from the Paris Agreement but at different administration could get the US back in and take a leadership role in future climate talks and that's why I think all international observers are looking very intensively into the US elections because that will determine to lodge pod what will happen in the US and therefore also determined mm-hmm the appetite of other countries to do more or less if the wealthy and powerful United States won't cut its emissions by that important twenty thirty deadline other countries. Will we'll have an easier excuse for why they shouldn't have to either for the world. I'm Caroline Bueller Caroline will be reporting all this week on climate change as has the UN General Assembly opens and tackles the issue in addition to the usual gathering of world leaders in New York a teenager whom caroline just mentioned will also be there Greta Tune Berg the Swedish sixteen year old started international campaign of Friday protests where students walk out of school each week to demand that adults do something about climate change tune. Berg has been spending her fridays for more than a year outside of the Swedish parliament today. Amnesty International presented her with its ambassador of Conscience Award Activism Activism works the so what I'm telling you to do now is to act because no one is too small all to make a difference more than a million young people for more than one hundred nations have taken part in recent school strikes for climate action as guests entered the opening of a new exhibit museum in the Netherlands. They stepped over a red carpet in the shape of a swastika it striking certainly and that's the point the exhibit at the Design Museum then boss is called design of the Third Reich. It shows how design helped spread Nazi Ideology Museum curator's say they worked closely with the Jewish community in the Netherlands to address potential concerns and they've taken pains to make sure the exhibit doesn't glorify Nazi propaganda. Visitors can't take photos photos. There's extra security and free audio tours still for some. That's not good enough. The Association of Dutch anti-fascists has condemned the exhibit. Honolulu is the director of the Center for Information and documentation Israel. She joins us from Amsterdam. Hana critics say the exhibit which includes Nazi propaganda is provocative live and should be shut down. What's your take well. I don't think they should shut it down. I think they've done their utmost to keep the exhibition I say under control troll with the anti-fascist are really concerned about is what we were concerned about to start with in the first place which was nice could. NATO Nazis make use of this exhibition in a way that we would not like you feel at this point that that they're doing enough so that neo Nazis can't kind of appropriate this and use it to their advantage what I don't know I don't know this is always a question on this is a big risk which they've taken and they'll have to make sure it doesn't happen but you know whatever they will succeed or now. I hope so I do hope so because I do think it's important for everybody to to learn more about the Nazi not superior. Why do you think this exhibit is worth having. Would you think can can teach people well. What I am hoping is that it will teach people exactly the question. How did the Nazis manipulate nicotine to to support them. How did they impress them him. I think it's quite well known that the Nazis did for example with propaganda with speeches but they also did that with architecture they did that with lots of manifestations at and I think we have to understand how these things work so they will not accept being many related again and I think this is something that not he's mastered very well and I'm afraid we are still suffering under the same risks even in our modern order in time in spite of the history we all know in what way in modern times we know the fact of manipulation of big leaders we know the effect so many cool right but the results so many relation of an even churches you know churches which impress people because they are so it's morning a huge building in prices you to to respect God in a different way and not a daring churches to to the Nazis in no way but the methods methods over impressing people making people want to be loaned to group making people want to be on to something that feels nice feel beautiful it feels promising is is danger we face every day we reached out to the Director of the design museum then boss his name is Tim O. Deryke and he told us this. If if you wholeheartedly want to be able to say never again you must take time to analyze how the influencing processes worked at the time he went on to say that the museum makes clear from the the very beginning that it deals with a racist ideology so if visitors to the museum know what they're seeing as racist is that enough. I hope they found some ways of measuring how people what people learn in such in such an an exhibition and I think that's very important that we you know we keep checking in to what extent the goal is being reached because the material by itself for non professionals. It's just you know just artifacts. Do you think more museums should be should be having displays like this one to to illustrate kind of tough historical lessons well I. I think museums have a very important role in educating adults about a teaching adults in educating adults about different aspects of our history which people know too little all about but. I don't think it's easy. I think it's a big challenge. Maybe I can tell them what they said. What are the risks but I do know that it's Gordon for for society's to to make sure people have accumulated more knowledge about our history our common history and especially about the dock at chapters from his for me because the neighboring gin is a very important message. Honolulu is the director of the Center for Information and documentation Israel. She's been speaking to us from Amsterdam. Thanks to let Hannah you're welcome. Thank you very much. Snakes are scary but for most of us. The fear is more hypothetical. I've I've never come across one commuting into Boston for example but in many places in southern Africa snake bites are a real concern puff matters black. Mambas spitting cobras all produce produce deadly venom and people who get bit need to be treated quickly now. Kenya has a motorcycle ambulance service to help people in rural areas the BBC's Tulip. Mazumdar car has a story from Nairobi. It cites o'clock at night and Joffrey Moranga from the Kenya Snake Bite. Research and intervention centre gets a cold. I was terrified to a man in a nearby village has spotted a Cobra portrayed good. We're on our way. Let's say Joe Free is with a colleague from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine in the UK professor at case well. They want to find venomous snakes. Take back to their home in Nairobi they take their extendable hooks and thick gloves and head into the village so I can see the snake now very long red snake commits quilt around branch the snake onto the ground now so you guys are literally stood there holding this what Spitting Cobra Kirby common core's along with this community is very lucky. joffrey Nick managed to catch the Cobra before it could hurt anyone in a nearby village martyr Zaza Malaysia fits under a beautiful old tree with her nephews and niece she was bitten by a puff adder four years ago losing her left leg from just below the knee and consequently her livelihood earning Ingraham hours on the farm digging in Twenty fifteen when a snake bit me on my uncle on my body was completed one. Anton turned block. I was told I would have to have in my leg amputated. I can't walk fend for myself anymore. Her experience is a sadly common one here. She wasn't table to get to a hospital which could treat her fast enough but it doesn't have to be this way. A pilot scheme is underway away here testing out new snake by ambulances which can get into difficult to access areas quickly and get people to hospital fast it almost always the because problem that leads to loss of lives and lots of teams is because of the distance that Cecilia and gare she's a nurse from Kenya's his new snake bite research and intervention centre a major part of Cecilia and her team work here is ensuring communities know about the ambulances and teaching and people basic snake bites. I ATE A it's a sunny Friday afternoon and about one hundred people have come from surrounding founding villages to learn all about snake bites setting to me what they normally do. This woman has taken often often tied up around her do that to prevent the venom from going up. Which is the wrong thing to say next to Celia shows the correct correct way to give snake bites. I eight saw this show to immobilize the whole limb and then to sticks on both sides of the leg. Just it is completely mobilized when we have developed to move more into the system today has been a success to see and had head team handout their mobile phone numbers to people can call them if someone is bitten if the pilot scheme which is funded by the UK government is a success it could be rolled doubt in other parts of the country very soon the BBC's Tulip Mazumdar reporting there you're with the world now for an historic first in the world of sports fans of the NBA champion Toronto Raptors basketball team can walk into the official merchandise store and buy t shirts hats jerseys and hit jobs. The Raptors said the new gear was inspired by our local sports club for female Muslim athletes. The club is called the hegemony ballers they organize weekly basketball nights smell tennis classes and other programming in the Toronto Area Amorim. Kadoi founded the group. She says she got the idea after she started playing rugby and didn't see other players who looked looked like her over the past five six years that I played rugby. I didn't see a lot of people that were her job. Especially older people like look up to as role models in the sport and just in other sports general and that kind of made me curious as to if there really is a community of Muslims email ossets Toronto and of their Intel can be connect them together so we're not all outcasts in their own little communities so I started hegemony ballers was just a way to connect Muslims emails in Toronto Police Sports Works but the response was overwhelming that as we grew on as people found out about us there was demand for sports programming that was targeted for Muscleman Samoan and just you know a space for Muslims emails. Can Police Force feel comfortable. See Waltham and Nazi like you have to give up their identity to play. What was your response when you you heard the raptors were now offering a job. L. Is is positive they reach out to me before launch and really wanted our group to be incorporated corporate into the launch of the Raptors Nike he job so it's really says from the organization like we see you support you. We want to create a space. Where are you feel welcome. What does the raptors branded Hejab. Look like it's a Nike job with a rockers Lana. The sing with Aesthetic Hejab says it's men to you. Stay secure on the head without pins or anything that can injure the athlete while playing specially contact sports so the I mean the raptors embellishment on the his job is pretty cool to any kind of makes us productivity rockers. Fans may surprise me. Muslim makes us to be athletes. I'm curious the kinds of challenges oranges Muslim girls and women face when they're looking to get involved in sports because I know that sort of motivated you to start the job ballers more on one of the big challenges that must but not just Muslims but like a lot of immigrant newcomer families faces is accessibility to sports in terms of financial accessibility mostly but also just access to knowing where sports program is held things like that and with John Waller we try to create sports events that are financially accessible that for most of them are free and it's creating a space where Muslim females comfortable and welcome to go play another thing that a lot of Muslim communities face I think as is cultural taboo towards girls fleece fords and just rolls and is that taboo among Muslims in Toronto or is it more perception option by non Muslims that if someone wears a hit job they may must not be interested in sports those two things there's a perception among like the older generation of Muslims in Toronto Toronto that you know they're Canadian dream of coming to Canada and having your kids go to school in all of that late that didn't include sports. It's still further all like why aren't you studying a line Japan schooler. Look Sports isn't seen US nothing valuable so there's a perception worship a change in we're really trying to incoherence in the conversation of why sports is beneficial to kids and adults everyone really and then the other perception of non on the Sims towards Muslim females wearing job. I think that's more so this idea that like non Muslims are just people that are not part of this Muslim female athletes community. They don't look there are Muslim. Jarring athletes please. Ford so they automatically think all that person must not be good or They're doing and like dot can perception zone. There's two different ones I think. How important is it for young athletes to see other? Muslim women role models in sports so so important I think markers resolution is the most important thing for young people to see growing up in even older people. Honestly I think representation in sports. Media is one of the key things we we can do as a society to grimace females in sports in all that saying you can't see it. You can't be it right so listen crossing to see other missiles play sports. It's for them to realize that that's really can do as well am. Rancagua is the founder of the Hippie ballers and Athletic Club in Toronto for Muslim women and girls. Thanks a lot marine. Thank you so much for having me. If you don't have kids or haven't been a kid recently. Let me initiate you into the world of Pokemon.

Black Widow On Serial Box

"Now another addition of Tony Tomato on cy cy talk. From Lord of the Rings. Abraham but I remember. votes. Join sounds as creepy man. Who Your Mazda. Someone I to the hat. Wow Hey. That's great appreciate. My guy the Archangel Gabriel is. Really. What is most important? Is that Burnham forgives herself. Because as burn my carry a tremendous amount of guilt and shame on name is Alex. Zahara played read. God's Zales to. Iron shirt the one eyed onus, Ricky! Allman coca were not. Saifi Talk. Papa typical. Behavior? Effects what's it like for you both to kind of two? The things that aren't there well, you know sometimes you have an experience anyway. Day. Gone? In part because of the hopeful nature of genes vision, but also because of its message of diversity and inclusion. Long and prosper. I the sci-fi, talk and Tony Tomato, and if you're a marvel fan and you particularly like the Marble Female Superheroes and Cereal box has done a really interesting thing. They've actually allow you to not only listen to an audio version, but also download or access at least and read a read it as a book and right now we're talking to the people involved in a new black widow story. It's exclusive just for cereal box, black widow, bad blood, and that is Lindsay. Smith she is a writer head writer on this project, and then also Saron Natto Channy, who is the voice of black widow, and also the narrator, welcome ladies. It's great to talk to you. Thank you so much for having us. It's my pleasure. It's okay. Everybody talks over each other out here. But but this is really cool. Lindsay from your aspect to do it as a dual threat, a challenge, but obviously the fans love the versatility of it. Yeah, it's been really great to see and that's kind of the cereal box standard to is to have both the the e book version, and then the audio version simultaneously I I know when I listened to cereal box, able to kind of switch senior seamlessly between the two. Depending on what I'm doing I'm. This is my third series working with them I think they're wonderful company with a wonderful format for presenting these stories and I just love it Sarah. You're voicing really. She's become iconic character in the marvel universe because of her cinematic life enter comic life too for that matter, but the characters really taken off and. Play a lot of young women. Are, and maybe some young men are also caused playing as black widow. So how do you approach I? Guess you. Kind of have to look at it with your own eyes and not be influenced by anybody else's performance. Yeah, I actually didn't look at Scarlett Johansson performance of before approaching this character. I'd seen it before, but it had been a while, so it didn't really influence me at all. I see the narrator as an extension of massage. Romanov and she's definitely kind of dry, and she understands irony and she's. She's just a really cool character, though that kind of came. Pretty naturally to me. I guess I'm not as cool as her, but. She definitely to me in many ways. Yeah. She's just she's fabulous. She's actually my favorite character. That ever played cool Lindsey. What happens with this is the widow teams up with Bucky Barnes. That's an interesting team low. We've never seen cinematic -ly, and maybe it's happened in the comics, but I'm not familiar off with the top of my head. What was the thought process on teaming her with Bucky? Well, the they've interplay so well together, and that's kind of because of their shared history through the KGB and the red room and. Yes. We were able to kind of. Even, though that's happened in the comics hinted at in the movies for our universe. We really got to dictate how that tests had looked for them. what sort of. their personal relationship. They had their obviously very fraught one because Natasha, at least to some extent, with working semi willingly with the KGB or at least she was in. She had some autonomy whereas bookie was just completely brainwashed into the. Your personality. She has deeper memory of what they looked like when they worked together with the in the KGB and in the room, then he does now so there's really interesting back and forth between them, and they're trying to figure out how they were together now that they're free in their own respective way cool. So Lindsey when when you're putting together something like this. I guess you have to you do a long story arc first and then with your team kind of you know, get into the trenches to speak and start writing this pacer, or was each episode or portion kind of given to certain members to work on I'm here for the. Tendency roebuck method that we have is what we call the writer summit. In in preparation of the summit, the lead writer, lead writer in had editor in this case myself and Taylor Stephen. developed. Our General Pitch for what the what we wanted to season to look like. and really refined that and sent that out to the writing team in advance. and then we all met together in New, York, city this time for a long weekend, just spent basically in a writing together hashing out the entire season down to pretty much by beat and dividing it into episode. with with the whole team, and it's always wonderful to see the way that it comes together because it starts off pretty chaotic, and then by the end of it, everyone's just really synthesize well together. You can see what everyone's individual strengths are storytelling, and how they're coming up with these cool elements, and then everybody. By the time you're done. Everybody pretty much has these episodes that you can tell that they're really gravitating toward that? Really speak to them and their storytelling subdivide it up from there, and then we all go back home and start actually doing the writing process. Sarah was at ease you send. It was fairly easy to find who she was for. This version vocally. Did you do anything different? To distinguish her from Odyssey that you're narration. Pitcher a little bit higher because my my natural ranges. Low and I also have to play all the other characters so I wanted to. Thank you without being too animated because I I come from animation background. and. So that that was a you know a very small hurdle, but one that we had to address with the director. Amanda Rosement. Basically like E, I have to play all the characters. They all have to all be distinct, but they can't be distracting so that the reader and the listener don't kind of get taken out of the story by. kind of almost wacky new voice that I'm doing you know. So. But there had to be deaf differentiation, so my narration voices kind of in the middle of my range I. Put Natasha a little bit higher and I tried to differentiate them just by making character choices Bucky I. Think is my well this Can I? Can I say this goes? I can say this. For separate food Yeah Yeah! this goes is probably my strongest acting choice. and Bucky is has the most longevity so far. so sorry. That's my cat so he I had really strong choices about him because he does have two personalities and I wanted to do justice to that. And then. Talk show a lot so I had to make sure that. Really quite different, and that you know who speaking when they're speaking. When you're into booth, you know doing this How much direction do you get from the director, or do they let you do several different versions I know it's you're you're you're talking a lot so obviously you can't. riff on too much but But what? What's what's it like for you when you do that? Yeah, there's no riffing. I'm reading exactly what's on the pay? Unless, it's like the Russian stuff, and then because I speak Russian. It's my first language I. I, just make you know just the corrections that need to be made. There are very few. This is so well written and the Russians great she actually W- so we start out I read the title I read written by Lindsay Smith and and all the other writers and then I get to just reading the whole thing, and sometimes I make a mistake and I stop. Stop and I go back a few sentences, or she'll stop me if she feels like. I'm losing energy or something that's happened a couple of times, and she just says okay. You're GONNA hate me, but go back. Go back to like a page ago and I'm like that's fine I want this to be as good as possible but we do. We do one. Take the whole thing I. I've never had to Redo a whole episode IV redone like a page, but. No Never And starting with Lindsey I I mean which gratifying with this, and also with the Jessica Jones cereal box is that there's a lot of women involved? That's pretty neat, and that adds public different spin if it was just guys writing for women, which hasn't been done for ever. That was very much goal going into this. Just from the START I definitely want to make sure we have. Women will represented on the team and so boxes fantastic about that. And making sure we just have wonder wonderfully diverse within that shoe, and really bringing to life the Tasha kind of in a way that we haven't really gotten this here because she isn't often written by women so being able to draw that out and really talk about what speaks to us. Personally about Natasha spent like a good hour, the beginning of the writing from an even just hashing through, Oliver. Natasha field for lack of a better term. That out there and deciding what kind of the Tasha we wanted to represent, and what was important to us and that telling. And Sarah. What's it like to know that the words you're reading? We're also written by women and it's a female character obvious. Oh, it's Liberating is the one word I can think of. No. It's very very cool. Why don't we take a break? We're talking to to the ladies involved with black widow. Bad Blood, a new audio and also series. You could read on cereal box and we'll be right back. Hello I'm Doctor Rodney McKay David Hewlett. If you from target Atlanta and you're listening to you. Talk back on Scifi talk with Lindsay Smith WHO's the head writer of black widow, bad blood, and we have the widow herself. Sarah Natto Channy, who voices are, and narrates not only that, but she does the voice of Bucky Barnes who plays among other characters who plays bucky plays a very big part in this ladies. It's great I have to ask you. Lindsey was. How was marvel with this where they hands on, or did they kind of let you to your own devices, and they've been really supportive every step of the process you know understandably. They're very protective of their characters who have been around decade. Honestly I think Natasha's been around since the fifties in the comedy day been really good on working with a first of all kinds of letting. Letting US have our own little corner of the black widow universe that we can adjust, tinker to whatever we needed to tell the story we wanted to tell and then they've been really good about kind of setting good boundaries as to what sound good to them in terms of a trail. What maybe doesn't what sort of stories they're comfortable with us telling night and finding what? Release sits in while still letting it the our project. That's great to hear that I, mean they. They've done a great job with the movies and obviously in the comics, so that's great. I I don't know what it has been. But there was actually I kind of started the year with a more women on my podcast and men and I you know I just kind of went with it I wasn't consciously trying to even out the balance, but here's just a lot of really cool projects that women are involved in. Do you ladies from your own sense? You Know Sarah Work in animation as well that the women's roles really this year. It really have started out very strongly. Maybe maybe. I I mean I'm trying to think in my in my own life just out of my friends. I know a good friend of Mine Lawrence six. She's a female director and she's. She's booming this year I. Don't know if that's the I. Don't know if that's because women are booming or because she's just booming I don't know we think Lizzie. I know on the SCIFI fantasy literary side I think I personally have been making a big effort to try to read. Any writer other than men, and it's been a great couple of years for that sort of fiction I'm currently reading But called docile by Kate employers, who is a transplant out of Baltimore, and that's kind of where the setting is more Sifi setting of Baltimore That's fascinating There was a great book called and Gideon Midnight. which is this wonderful Lesbian Space Necker Mansor? Her story so yes, and it's been a great year for a couple of years. Really SCI FI and fantasy for that I. Think more with your friend Sarah I think. Women are being hired as directors, not because just because they're women, but they're also talented and able to do the job and. I just I've been covering a show called. Motherland Ford Salem. And it. The CAST is primarily women. You actually see more men not come into the series until the third episode. And a surprisingly surprising. You don't Miss Them. He has a guy did miss 'em because. Regardless of anything if the characters were strong, regardless of whatever sex they are, you're going to hook into a series you know and and lately, Jennifer Connelly is the lead in Snow Piercer. Job there yeah so. It may be the opportunities are there maybe it's changed? Or maybe there's just a lot of talent out there, too so the female talent has always been there. It's just a matter of of seeing that and developing that and allowing that to be the main voice in something. That's once I think being allowed more and more now, which is great and. And? What what about the appeal of black widow? Why has she lasted so long from the fifties and Linda? You can start us off. Yeah well, I think from the fifty ish kind of more of A. One dimensional. Type Personality but. Gee was. A villainous, honestly I. If I, if I'm remembering rate, but she's really developed to encompass all of these conflicting archetypes in. She's a bit of a mystery, even to herself the because the way that she was raised in the red room to be this super amazing by top notch, assassin and everything it just means that she almost had to completely wipe clean her own personality. Trying, to suppress it, but when she gets free of the Red Room when the KGB, she has to kind of figure out who she is and how that? Works What? What does she actually want herself? And how? How does that change your outlook on things when she's doing things for herself instead of for the Soviet Union, or whoever the case maybe hydro. On or even working for shield versus working for herself. She's very versatile in that sense, l. but also. I think deeply conflicted because of it. Oh, yeah, no. There's a lot of layers to her. That's one of the things I love and I'm glad movies in. Limited time You know that she had she. She used it. Well unfortunately. It took her to die to get her own movie. Which I thought was. A little too late there, but you know. No spoilers, but I think by now in games out there and everybody knows what's going on there. And Sarah I'm a little jealous. Because as an actor, you kind of get into her skin, a little bit and kind of see it from her perspective. That's you get to know where in a way that most of us don't get to know. And I'll die with those secrets. Sorry, not telling you. Fair Enough Fair Enough? So it is. She somebody. You'd like to revisit sometime. Oh thousand percent I player for the rest of my life. She's fascinating. Fascinating no doubt about it. Well, this is a great series. I love with cereal boxers, doing an and sci in particular a lot of Great Arthur C.. Clarke stories have been adapted as well and I. Mean it's just awesome as we record this. 'cause you don't tape anymore of that. See were at the last episode was episode five flashback city and on my birthday. A trap with the view is the next episode May Twenty Six, and that'll be the next one that's. Just as a housekeeping thing, the season's only ten bucks and I mean that's nothing. It's cheaper than going to the movies and folks. We can't do that right now, so This is not a bad alternative. Plus you can carry it with you, which is great, I wanNA thank you ladies. For each of you. What's what's coming up next? Yeah, so finishing out the. SEASON, I think we're going to be running probably through August if I recall correctly I, don't have big day in front of me but then in October. My next novel comes out. It's a young adult historical Sifi. called the shadow war, which I'm kind of catching as inglorious. Meet Stranger thing. so. Or to. Well we're to with demonic dark powers from an alternate universe happening in it so yeah, that's what's next for me. Very cool alternate universes. That's really nice. And then Sarah, what about you so? I play Ash Ketchum on the show Pokemon and poke him on jury. Dropping on, that's like on June twelve. The last degree of Kevin last degree of Kevin Bacon is now out on spotify. That's ten episodes comedy I play like ten characters in it starting here. Sedgwick Kevin Bacon Walsh. l'amour Lauren worse. Dish nettling morale is Rob Reiner. It's directed by Josh. Ruben, then, tastic, very proud of it And I think that's it for the moment. And this obviously. You know that's the thing. It's like come in acting standpoint. Things have of dried up a little bit, and you're not alone. Nobody's working right now. Yeah, it's weird at the director podcast than that. You know. I want everybody in the same room. So that's being put on holes. There are a few people who. Do stuff remotely and we're working on that and working on my own show, so we'll see. Yeah yeah, it's. Yeah. This is an had a major adjustment and I mean New York is closed now until the middle of June is to stay at home order so It's GonNa be a very weird summer already, so I can just tell you. And what is getting warmer and you know people are? kind of taking chances I shouldn't but. What are you going to do? It was very strange very shrinks time right now. Yeah, but the main thing is to say safe and healthy, and so that you can keep on keeping. Yeah exactly you too happy. Instead? Yeah Yeah Yeah I will I will I. I don't know I don't have a lot of options. We were supposed to go away and. Those plans really fell through, so I was at the beach and you know is. The closest body of water is these rivers about all I can see right now, but that's the way it's. SORTA. SORTA Got Charms. It does have its charm. I was I love New York, though I do I love living here. It would have been nice to get away. Thank, you ladies again. It's black widow. Bad Blood! Thank you for being on the podcast and again stay safe. Thank you so much. Thank you. Thank you for listening to side talk, ask for help. We all take care and it's black widow bad blood until next time everyone Gillian. Murray and I'm starring in wild things and the grave. And you're listening to I talk.

Nerd-Cane Adventures: Anime North 2019

"'til your way in the world today takes his comes to us from Jordan. Maywood begs that we have Jordan. Who's GonNa Tell Georgia Ah yes would help this is petula? The possibility exists that if I were to actually listen the liberal Puke Park featuring host George Maywood I could potentially enjoy arena arena endorsed potentially joy this episode which will start after the other half by Metro comedy won't tell her gives us a countdown. Take it away dollar. Hello welcome to the liberal Cuba. My name is Jordan. I the lackadaisical liberal ridiculous. This show is normally one in which I will go through the media. I have consumed in a hopefully entertaining fashion however from time to time I will go on a adventure specifically a nerd Cain Adventures if you're unfamiliar for this is your first time listening which is possible for the reason that this is my first time attending this particular convention what I will do from time to time usually once a year twice this year I will go to a convention like Your Fan Expos Your Toronto comecon now your anime North's births. If you're unfamiliar with these things in General Sandiego comecon usually I think the biggest one question mark facts out of my but I am throwing so I'll go to those sorts things are in a long time back. I realized <hes> when I went to them I would like to get the autograph of a nerdy celebrities and what could I get them to sign just a picture of themselves now. Come on <hes> originally I thought maybe I would bring globe an actual globe and get them to sign. You know maybe where they were born or were they a place. They like to be something like that. Then I realized hey then I'd have to carry around a global day and that didn't sound like fun. Then the combination of having a bad back and waiting in line meant having something to lean on is very helpful so I thought Kane and then and then but wait there's more I decided to have these celebrities autograph this Kane this cane which filled up with autograph so it's had to have certain adjustments to it over the years to make more room and it has become an adventure her in which not only does that happen but I will also hand said Cain to people in cost play and take compare their picture. There 'cause play picture. That's the that's the word I have just phrased there. Come picture <hes> <hes> there 'cause picture <hes> they're often confused looks like why am I holding this Cain and a picture and all of this is neatly tied up in this podcast. We're all go through all the pictures I took N._C.. Foot sparks any memories and that's that's basically what this is doesn't sound like something you're interested in well. I'm surprised you made it this far. You Weirdo three minutes and twenty five seconds then I did that right on the nose okay so I picture sure and the line yeah <hes> so I got their doors open a ten. I got there like right at ten because it was a hard to find a parking spot <hes> one interesting thing this takes place at the Toronto Congress Centre ably with it's called which is kind of funny because I have been here five times. Maybe he's quite a number of times <hes> because I used to work at a place that would go to conventions here for like healthcare stuff and I used to have to go and help up set up booths and <hes> it's funny to have to go to that and I used to hate those because it was me and basically a bunch of sales people who had to set up these. Booze and and I got to say if you have to do any sort of manual labor <hes> sales people. This is not a universal truth. This is just the truth I have lived. See People are horrible. The prime example I have is I was up on louder on this one girl like she was helping me assemble booth and she's like Oh okay. I'll be back in one SEC as I was up this ladder waiting for her to help me set up the booth and then she disappeared and never came back fucking ridiculous. I was passed so it was nice to be in this building and actually have fun and not have to sell anything up <hes> despite the fact that there was some winning outside in the rain to get in <hes> I should say just on not notes <hes> this convention is Friday Saturday and Sunday <hes> only what the one day just because <hes> I actually recorded the five hundred episode of my podcast yesterday it sort of coincided with this unfortunately so I had so much to do this week and I just didn't have time to enjoy all three days but I packed a shit ton in if you'll excuse the swearing <hes> so <hes> that was the one negative side and it didn't even rain hard just a little bit of drizzle while we reading outside so <hes> okay. Here's my first pick <hes>. I like to get a little bit of a panoramic one just to to see you know on the note of this pick surprised how big this was <hes> when I used to set up for the convention and it was just maybe like one third probably of this hall whereas I'm pretty sure this thing took up the entire building so it was quite impressive. I I didn't think it was going to be as large as it was. <hes> okay so I picture with a <music> sailor moon character or okay now this comes up every nerd cain adventure and it's the fact that I do consume a sh- I say this time a poop ton of media like I watch a ton of movies these T._v.. Video Games. I do enjoy animate. My intimate knowledge is not of a depth that I am proud of. Let's say so <hes> particularly I have found at enemy north <hes> <hes> I will not know what every character is that I get a picture with so I'll describe it and <hes> I if you're watching this on youtube because <hes> I do an audio only version which maybe you're listening to the Audio version or you could go to youtube where her <hes> it will be this podcast with visuals over top although they're not sinked perfectly by any means but still <hes> maybe you'll recognize some of the people so <hes> a girl in some sort of sailor <hes> this <hes> this doesn't happen as much in my previous ner canned adventures just because anime you can go you can get some real deep polls and combined with my knowledge is is not great. I'm not going to know a lot of these like this. person dressed arrest all white with flowers on their head. I don't know what that's from. <hes> Cool Night Guy <hes> evil looking you know any kind of looks like the <hes> the Necker Manser from Diablo. I don't think that's wooded as but he's got some really cool detailed armor. If he made himself super super impressive his sword was good as well and I was like a picture of near cane in one hand and a sword in the other so this was a cool on the helmet in particular very very detailed picture from afar of a furry yeah there was quite a few <hes> freeze walking around which I didn't know enemy north and freeze sort of coincide with one another apparently <hes> it's not something I think it's something I've seen at fan expo before but <hes> it seemed to be in more abundance here. Oh Oh yeah okay so I stopped by and said hello to a cause players of Canada. Koss player can't can't ship. I didn't get his car 'cause players of Canada Yeah. That's it is <hes> Super Super Nice Guy since my very first nerd can't adventure has always sort of about <hes> bounced into whatever that means I find if you go to enough of these things you start to recognize people who take pictures of college players like there's professional ones of which I am very much not <hes> so he even has his own booth and set up here so people can sort of come and get their very professional looking pictures taken unlike the ones that I take which. Which <hes> we should sort of discuss a little bit like there's different routes you can go? There's <hes> his professional ones and their own booth and then there's mine which are Cillian dumb and don't look as good but I hope and feel you know and hope and feel that they're both valid ways to do this thing this taking pictures of people and caused play for the reason that we appreciate cost play right question mark. Perhaps <hes> okay so now we've got a pika he could chew ones the with Darth Maul Mascot so that right there you know I just enjoy that period and then some sort of princess with them sick like a gizmos ears from the gremlins franchise but I don't know what that is a bunch of <hes> larger guys <hes>. I think that was maybe from if it wasn't them they were definitely there the Medieval Times dinner and tournament. I actually don't think it was them but they were also. They're very very cool and details. Pick a good dragon ball Z dude Super Zan. This one girl with a mushroom honor had an Elf ears again. I don't know she did the classic Nerd Kane as gun unopposed. Oh okay speaking of Furry. He's he's are the scantily clad big bosom freeze if that is a genre furry. I don't know like anime. My knowledge of juries is not fighting cleans deep <hes> they were fun and interesting and handed me a car. Oh Shit Yeah. I wanted to give them a plug. <hes> okay so I got the cart here first of all sorry. We couldn't talk right now. Yeah they wouldn't talk. I guess they are quote unquote in character so that added to I will admit a slight creep factor the not talk not blink because they have these big anime is on staring at you and they were tall too do I'm six one and they <hes> they were taller than I was. <hes> okay Sir we can talk but if you have any more questions of boats and Amigo Jeez I'm going to butcher this and Amigo Kigora Anami or our masks. Please visit US online and then on the back. It says thank you for stopping to take a photo. I would really appreciate if you could please share this memory. <hes> which I'm doing here with me an email a copy when you get a chance to okay Chris offer remember that <hes> and you can visit their site of the W. Dot <hes> a spell it kate. I G. U.. R. U. M. I. O. N.. L. I n.. The E. Dot Org dot org fancy <hes> in twitter other Nico Nico C-i-s-g so check them out <hes> very very <hes> interesting to behold. I will guarantee their <hes>. Ah there there 'cause play. Is it still a costly. I don't know <hes> is interesting moving onto Oh yes couple. I don't know what enemy this is from where it's like a necklace made of mouth God that sounds weird describing ascribing it. I actually don't know what it's from but I saw a few people in fact when I was taking this picture of this one girl with this moth necklace thing another one in the same 'cause play came up when they started chatting which is which was funny <hes> yeah <hes> so this is probably a good spot got to hang out <hes> and I probably should've spent more time here. There was a place <hes> where you could like go in like touch up your cause play like if something fell off of it there was like glue guns or or stuff like that <hes> 'cause play medics. I think they call something like that. 'cause play lounge so I hung out near there because obviously there's going to be because player but I did not I moved around a fair amount. Oh yeah that was interesting. They had like these three sailor moon ncaas players <hes> doing like the Cirque du Soleil like hanging from the rafters like swinging and doing acrobatics and stuff that was pretty insane no Matt's either which was someone who doesn't like heights some sweaty hands moments there. I'll tell you <hes> also in similar area. They had <hes> intimate chess where people would stand on a board. I don't know how they determined or was it checkers. I actually don't know I don't know how they determine what character was what chess. Recipe's but it was with actual human beings playing the chess pieces so that was interesting a friend of mine now seen him <hes> the last three cons. I've been to in a different 'cause play this time. I don't know what it's from. It's an anime related one. I'm sure <hes> that was nice to catch up with <hes> because I got <hes> the the skinny I asked him for all the enemy North 'cause play tips and tricks because I I have never been there before and he gave me all sorts of <hes> good things to look into for next time I should say because one thing about this one which is interesting and I don't really know how it works. It doesn't just take place in this building. It takes place in multiple buildings like where you like blocks apart. I just went to the one I guess. This is the biggest one but maybe next year I'll planet a little better and I'll try to visit some of the other ones <hes>. We'll see. We'll see Kay we've got what's a lady four slash storm sort of luck here. Let's let's a cool one. She looked a little familiar to <hes> from from previous ones. We've got sort of a a French maid outfit with a he <hes> would is that Michael Myers mask so that's a that's a good Combo. I've got a <unk> man. Oh which I don't see that movie lately <hes> couple of enemy one with a big pink pink feather Boa they were Nice. I remember I'll have to skip some that. I don't know like this one free. We got a threesome here from an anime. Wow I feel bad that I much more vague than I normally am. Because I just don't know okay. Here's one I know and this will demonstrate the depth of my enemy knowledge which is not so DEP <hes> we've got to Akira from the movie Akira along with a <hes> <hes>. I'm not sure someone from another anime Akira. I do know Oh yeah <hes> in other of those I would say french-made while I don't always say french-made but I think it's called Lolita when they dress in that sort of luck and there there's a group who were all sort of <hes> dressed in the same one. I think there was like seven or eight of them now. So that was some good pictures there one punch man see I know one punch man not great of my intimate Knowledge Death Camman oncoming some slack <hes> that was good. You know what I could do that with the shaved head 'cause I have a shaved it <hes> two ladies we got an Ash Ketchum and a what's the girl from pokemon and <hes> yeah see pokemon was a little before my time <hes> or a little after my time I should say <hes> like I feel. I'm thirty eight now. I feel like if I was like thirty five. I I probably would've caught it hard but <hes> it was just a little I was a little old for and I did watch a fair chunk of it. It's just it. It didn't grab me like it did a lot of people <hes> that girl had like a really cool helmet on Oh shit wait is the helmet from Zelda the barbarian one. I think it's called from breath of the wild yeah okay. I think that's what she stressed us. That's that's a cool helmet cool said of armor <hes> Asian Asian girl with buddy years in a very cool looking black dress not sure what that's from <hes> this is I steam punky version of <hes> night crawler and Jean Grey from excellent. ooh Okay see I do recognize some things <hes> yeah. This was a speaking of cm punk. <hes> this girl had a very cool steam punk address an lose all lights on it and she had the the the welding goggles as you do and they like lit up green girl she was nice to every once in a while and it's nice and I like to do it. <hes> people will ask questions with it's almost surprising that people don't ask questions that I'll just hand them the strange wooden metal cain thing and asked to take their picture and they'll just go with it which I appreciate but does sometimes <hes> before or after or during people will ask questions. Wins about it <hes> and this girl dead. She was very nice so I thank her <hes> not sure guy making a funny face in a picture which I appreciate objection <hes> yeah so what's out from <hes>. It's a lawyer <hes> Sh- was it ashore videogame. I'm pretty sure it was a video game where people would say objection yeah that one who's just as that I forget what it's called. <hes> Oh okay so here we have a dark link and I really intricate Zelda Princess 'cause play that one's cool those two there were good team or a nice family one <hes> I don't know what the enemy is but it's a family <hes> two kids and <hes> mom and dad dressed as something. I'm not quite sure which but the cool to see family come to a thing like this together so I I was like getting the family picks like that. Oh Okay so <hes> we've gone to something. I've never done a con on <hes>. I certainly did this on a whim like I wasn't planning on doing it but I thought he why the hell not this. This is the first time I've been to enemy northland WANNA. Try something new <hes> I if you're a long-time listener of the actual podcasts not these special episodes you well no D. and D. comes up a lot a lot dungeons and dragons if you're unfamiliar <hes> but I had never played at a convention on normally I'm sort of too focused on the whole nerd cain picture taking thing but I thought hey what the hell so I signed myself up and played for a couple of hours played sisterhood of the blade. Oh you know what I got. The guys information here <hes> Andrew Basinski he he was actually the creator of the module that we played <hes>. We've only played we we started dipped our toe into it for a couple of hours but it's like a full. <hes> you know what I didn't ask a what levels it goes through <hes> but <hes> was. I very very fun <hes> so it was me and three other players and the D._M.. And it's interesting to have the D._M.. There of an official Adventures League module run the actual thing for you so so we got quite lucky with that <hes> the players the players are the we're good the well you know what the Hell I'll. I'll just say I didn't I don't normally say negative things on the PODCASTS. There is lose me who've had played a lot and there was another player who who like me sort of obviously knew what he was doing and was sort of getting the role play and he's the type of player I would like to have at my <hes> my table and then there was another guy at the end who was also he was good but he was at the end of the table and if you've ever been to a convention it was it's very very loud. So I couldn't hear much he was saying but he he seemed nice as well <hes> and then there was another guy and I it's not that he was a Newbie. I I've said this on the podcast before I love newbies I love. I love teaching newbies it. It was the combination that he was a Newbie. <hes> also didn't pay attention so <hes> you you cannot pay attention and know what you're doing and when the turn comes to you <hes> do something or you can be a Newbie abby and be paying attention <hes> and then sort of learn as you go and get into it but he was neither of those things so he kind of slowed the game up a bit and <hes> I think there was some shared looks with the other players like Oh boy i. I've tried to give him a chance like <hes>. There was a magic item that we we got <hes> that we were probably going to need to finish our task. Let's say without giving anything away and <hes> <hes> I sort of suggested that he take it. <hes> you know to try to get them into the game a little bit more and something I like to do with newbies is give them a chance to shine if you will <hes> so we got to the point where where we needed it and me and the guy who was really good we were who has it and the guy didn't say anything he he forgot he had it <hes> so we had to explain to him he had it and what it does and where we ought it so kind of aside that that happened <hes> the other sort of <hes> disappointing thing. Was We ran out of time. Maybe it was because of things like that. I don't know <hes> So we played for two hours <hes> but apparently <hes> people were waiting for the table so we went a little over time. <hes> wasn't the fault of <hes> the G._M.. By any means he didn't know that we had to be done like at three o'clock sharp <hes> which apparently we did so <hes> I do recommend the other interesting thing the one thing I wanted to mention that I liked as well of the adventure venture that we just sort of dip our toe into <hes> was the fact that it started with a going to a training facility where trains adventures now. The reason I like that is Nostalgia Algebra on one hand because the first time I ever played the <hes> The D._M.. Did something similar where we went to a training facility also the first time I ever D._M.. D- I liked that idea so much and I did a sort of Oman is to it where I started where the adventures <hes> had to go to a training facility as well <hes> to determine whether they would be a right to join the secret organization and that's exactly what what happened here so <hes> victory cool my my first time playing my first time running my first time playing at a con <hes> all involving missions to join secret secret underground sisterhood of the blade a organizations through the use of a training facility so so very very cool checkout Andrew Bisky B. I. S. H. K. I. N. S. K. Y.. <hes> and trick sisterhood of the Blade Right now. It's an adventure leak but he was telling me that after they run it their hill publish it on D._M.. Skilled so <hes> you know check it out there. I will verify it's fun nece <hes> okay last last thing. I did <hes> so I did that and I knew when I was done I was gonNA head home. <hes> it was a long day but I saw they had a caricatures so I decided to get. I saw one <hes>. There'll be a picture included in if you're watching the video it'll be nearly end their Hasso. Would I did was got a picture of myself like a sort of a small version of myself holding nerd Kane who's like giant like towering over me so all in all <hes> very fun. I'll think I'll go back. The other nice thing is when I go to fan expo. I spend a shit ton of money on hotel autographs and the and I get V._I._P.. Ticket when I go that because of the lines in the back as I mentioned <hes> whereas here <hes> the tickets were not that expensive it's close enough that it's like a half an hour drive away from my home <hes> so I don't need to stay anywhere in the only money I spent the entire time parking was free. I should say the only money I spent the entire. Time was <hes> twenty dollars on this caricature which came out very well so hey I other than the ticket have a ticket so I think it'll go back <hes>. I'd like to go back you know what ahead <hes> friends and <hes> again if you listen I I feel like I've said this lot. If you listen to the regular show you know I play or played customer Dean D. With a a bunch of girls who also go to this but <hes> I never bumped into them so I'm curious if they went or when they went <hes> maybe I'll try to go with people next time. Maybe that'll add some fun and or excitement to it's we will see what else will we see not much other than to and this episode the same anyway I end every episode which is to say that it's nice to be nice to the Nice. This is the end of the show sincere. Thank you for listening time to plug something and and I do not mean but you can like us on facebook you can follow Jordan underscore maywood on twitter.

I remember member what a young swamp wasn't honoring Bart Starr all how time passes packers forty-one hi. I'm the cool I have direct ATV and on the titans and I have raised. It doesn't look like my favorite will be cutting the cord on his penis anytime soon. After the titans coughed up a late lead in Nash Vegas on Sunday Jacoby Brisket burt the tight ends and left shaped like a dry room and the ageless wonder Adam Venit Terry adds. It's two hall of fame career with an extra point. This guy's never gonNA retire colts thirteen titan seventeen. This is what the fishermen of tie she in Japan. Don't want you to see the world's most intelligent animals gasping for life as hunters hunter's watch on more than two minutes this dolphin struggles to stay afloat finally distressed an exhausted it can take no mold it gives one last thrash of its tail before its captors dragged away to be slaughtered mm-hmm Patriots Forty three hundred zero in Washington home of the Russian box where Prescott was a USSR. You don't know how lucky you are. Boys Boys Jason Witten to Bazi odds of Blake Darwinism as he proves yet again at survival of the witless for the tighthead Adrian Peterson who was a healthy scratch last week in talking to US perform form of child discipline stumbled bummer to forty five yards on the redskins. Fans aren't so keen on their playoff chances inches after to start cowboys thirty one twenty-one meadowlands where the Jews went up against against New York's number one team the Buffalo Bills Josh Alan Dershowitz was racking up the barely legal bills scoring on the giants who are stuck at fourteen saquon saquon means Business Barkley was the lone bright spot for the giants with one hundred seven yards and a visit to pay Dr but these aren't your father. She meant there the ghetto settlement and they stink. Hey teach boom no one circles lag as like the Buffalo Bills Bills Twenty eight G. Men Fourteen New York football giants. They're not cool to gut and mile high where Michael Michael Vic Fangio turned the dogs loose Mitch Trubisky all afternoon long as drake famously said as I said only partly I only love the high end aspire rose. I'm sorry and pairs left wondering imagine if i Never Mitch Trubisky so to quote the famous Panero his game winning kick was God's Plan Plan God's plan for Sixteen Brooklyn Fourteen to Los Angeles where the saints found themselves on Teddy Bridge over troubled water as Jared Simon Simon and Garfunkel carved up the saints defense without drew brees. The New Orleans said I got an Alvin Camera. I love to take off old or grab so mama don't take my dogs we ALMO- way as they head to Seattle for another road tests before heading homeward bound twenty-seven saints nine roughs seven we finish an Oakland for the final football game baseball field and the always electric Patrick mahomes lighting up the scoreboard.

Did you see that God just like andy and the crowd whole caps that cows cow's tickle my funny bone man. I tell you who is Neil mosquito to see coach in the black hole because just about every time I see him. He's consuming the Milky Way people forget in the draft the Tripolsky with the second overall pick well. I was still on the board but Heke it looks like they made the right decision. Because Mitch's bone out today shoot out for the good jobs win win win all around all right week to in the books while we saw Monday night football Apollo but week to mostly yeah I mean it was a wildly too. I feel like everyone got injured. We have a million injuries. We did that that tweet that everyone loves to do like it's only week two when we've already lost and then just list drew brees Ben Rothlisberger Sam Darnold who is he injured his nucleus to nucleus is you don't have one so we're going to do the we're going to recap of the entire week to know guest again and everyone loves it last week. I do this every Monday. Get to touch on every game yeah just me and big cat fucking of football for today's episode says also after we to you you have to say there are more questions than answers these teams big time so actually. Let's do this before we hop into the Sunday afternoon games. Let's just do the game. We just watched watched the Atlanta Falcons. I think are now eleven in one in home openers in their last twelve. I finally get paid back for always betting on the Falcons which I've lost way more money than I one tonight but it felt good and newsflash. The Eagles are like insanely injured already in week two yeah. Everybody took a trip to the ten today today. It was kind of a crazy game. I thought Eagles were going to win. It at the husband made that catch I thought when I first saw it that he made it to the line to gain but it was a parallel angles angles Carson wentz. I think is is still pretty good well he. He does this thing where it was like the Perfect Carson Wentz game where he wasn't very good to start start. Everyone's like this guy. He's the league. He's supposed to be league. MVP then he gets hurt then. Everyone says well. He's hurt so that's why he's playing bad then he played great and almost brought them back to victory like in two different drives when the game was on the line and you look at it and you say Oh yeah that's why that guy is so good and everyone thinks highly of them but but now we leave week to and be like okay. Herders not hurt right. It's crazy to watch the falcons play because if you were to compare this game to what they did in Minnesota last week. It's like it's a schizophrenic. It's a first team dare to personality Dan Quinn he wants to kick a field goal on fourth and short or fourth and Long Matt Ryan. I don't know what it is he just when he gets to the red zone he he just decides. This is exactly where I want to be thrown interception. He threw three picks. The Falcons are lead the league in this as a stat. I haven't looked up but I'm just GONNA say it lead lead. The League in fucking up in the red zone yet advanced analytics that I came up with the Falcons lead the league. I'M GONNA one up you say that going back to two thousand fifteen they lead the league in fucking up in the red zone. Every single falcons game comes down to them fucking up the red zone. That's why they won this game because they didn't even get in the red zone. They just threw a three three yard screen to Julio Jones and let him do that. More often. Throw a seventy five yard touchdown. Stay out of the red zone entirely like from they better when they're inside their opponents red zone right which would be what zone is that the browns zone yet shop zone red zone. Whatever that is the color spectrum who is no orange Pantheon check on that all right well yeah either way? The Falcons are back and eagles now like you said more questions. I think everyone on the team is injured. Yeah everyone's injured with the Falcons. I also Jeffrey retired. I think the Falcons are in the catbird seat my favorite term of the NFC south because that division is hot trash contrast. I'M GONNA dangle this out here for right now. I'm considering putting the Sunshine on the panthers. ooh I mean that's that makes sense because the panthers we talked about on Friday Kenyans broken right and their whole systems broke. They don't have anywhere to go without Cam Newton well. Maybe what's his name will greer. We'll leave your that's right okay so let's do. Let's start with the the one o'clock games I want to start with the forty niners and Bengals the game. The Hank was most looking forward to the story here is did you see the video where someone captured a bengals fan sending sending text to his friend from the nose bleeds and the text read fucking Andy Dalton I hope he dies on the field in the second half so I can run on the field and stop stop on his corpse. That's pretty strong. Yeah I mean. I don't think he really minced any words there. I'd like to see him. Try to get on the field to stop on his. I feel like if Andy Dalton dies on a football field I see his point because they should just like let him lay there right for a while. They should just let nature take its course have them decompose slowly on the field. They probably won't probably better facilities than the bengals have anyways spend money on on undertaker's and coroners in Cincinnati. Here's a fun fact though for that guy who wants to murder murder Andy Dalton League leader in passing yards through week to Andy Dalton. How many yards is you have today? He had I think he had like four hundred yards or something three hundred yards he had four hundred yards week one in three. He's leading the league with like seven hundred and fifty yards or some- somewhere around there yeah they're never going to give him up. No the any needs to beat lead the Bengals quarterback in perpetuity until he physically can't do it until he does die on the field. It also was one of those classic Games where all three hundred eleven yards say all the problems. The bengals had last year after week one everyone's like Oh. Maybe they're fixed turns out. None of them are fixed. The offensive line stinks thanks and the defense really defense isn't very good at all I. I don't know what to make of the Elliott I'm trying to I'm trying to get a vibe on him and he's a tough guy vibe out on because he's like he looks like an assistant coach on the sidelines. Yeah it looks like the guy whose job it is to catch the passes for the quarterback and then hand the quarterback the ball right. He doesn't pop pop on the sidelines. He doesn't have a thing yet. He needs to figure that survive he. It's a I would say I would go as far as he's got a sketchy vibe so he sketchy he is sketchy she because you just don't know what he's doing. He's one of those guys he shows up at a party and all your friends that are girls look at each other with like the side glances is this guy is he going to let any the quarterback all year now weird vibes yeah this also is Jimmy G. Game because he actually played a good game which everyone's been waiting for and on top of all that I love when we can just count on things in the NFL and because Kyle Shanahan Mike Shanahan Sun we can now count on the forty niners always having a no name guy be awesome it running the football yeah well Prideaux. He's not known him. He's pretty good. It's still the he will plug in anyone and they will. We'll get one hundred yards starter got injured. I might be wrong on that. I think he got he got banged up and then Brita is the guy that's he's always been the fancy football players like go. If he just got more touches he's made he's like the new Duke Johnson. Essentially they had three guys who had over ten cut touches Rahim most hurt. Am I saying that right yes Wilson Junior. He sounds like a race car driver and map Rita and they just ran the ball and ran the ball two hundred and thirty four Russia's between yards between those three guys and I just love it because it's back to old school Mike Shanahan. We're like whoever they put in that system. He'll just he'll just rip defenses zone blocking one Uconn yeah and you can when you can when you can like go to sleep knowing these things it feels good. Yeah put your foot in the ground. Get Downhill Alfred Morris can do you can do it yeah yeah. It's like collor. Shanahan and Bella check are the two guys that come to mind that fucking hate fantasy football owners so much that they almost get sick pleasure is your sick perverted twisted pleasure out of not like nobody being able to guess who's going to get the lion's share that touches in the backfield during any given game with bell check. It went so far that he was like. I'm GONNA put Aaron Hernandez back here for a game. I'm like I'm GonNa let the murderer get four point. Five yards per the guy's name who had like four touchdowns Johnson then got cut gray no yeah no no the guy who went on he he was on the cover of sports illustrated it was great wasn't great join US Greg Jones Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah and then he like look solid check wrong team plane. I love that can't do that the forty niners or classic team through two weeks there too. L. And I have no idea Thurgood. Are we sure that they're another record says that they're good but we're not sure if they're good next week. They get to play the steelers which I also don't. I don't know at home bad or good yet home so we won't know until probably till the rams week five all right next up. We have chargers at Lyons Anthony Lynn Your fucking idiot. That's what I wrote down okay. Anthony Lin went into this game without a kicker and had his punter kick field goals. He missed them in both the same motion and they lost by three and he missed the thirty nine earned a forty one yard and it's like what what are you doing. I also the other thing I noted was matt. Stafford is like a junk yard fill rivers. He's like a less accomplished fill rivers. They both have the same vibe where they could throw an horrible interception or they could bring their team back in the fourth quarter and like with withstand multiple injuries and in hardcore sacks implying sites they never see the blindside sack coming right and they can throw the ball around the yard yeah they don't feel pain and what I'm really enjoying about Philip rivers at this point his career is he's always had that weird shotput motion ocean where he starts from his shoulder. It's getting further and further away from his. He has no like he doesn't bring the ball back at all. It starts in front of them. It's like a chess pass every time he throws and he can make it go forty five yards needs to yes but he's fucking fun to watch and he's seen with us the nuns in the front row in the pre-game DA- Pingelapese Solidarity Y'all I'm. I'm not gonNA score just for y'All yes also lines fans lines fans. Are I think to behind raiders fans for most hilarious costumes that they all wear on Sunday's okay so and it's just a whole section of that just thinking completely normal to dress up like lions. You're forgetting about Mister Cat in Carolina again Dan Guy I'm talking about the Lions Fan because now not to Brag but we have direct TV at the office we actually to watch like the live feeds of the Games. There were so many shots I couldn't get my phone out fast enough of just lions fans dressed up like animals and and or looking like the Kiva blow job to a robot and dressing all silver for and Weird Shit. I like that I love like the in Detroit. That's how you just go to a game you. You don't go with like a work group or anything to the game game. You've got your hardcore die hard season ticket fans that you've your family has spent like being neighbors with every Sunday or eight Sundays a year for the last forty years and so so they only know you as your name when you're dressed up oh bucks fans are sneaky like that are too but the the all you need to know about lions. Fans is that like season ticket holders for the Detroit Lions think about this have spent every single Thanksgiving with the Detroit lions and not their family that says that is hard core you can get. I'd rather like now. I'M NOT GONNA do anything with my family. I'm just going to go watch the the shitty lions be Shit right I'd rather get noted on by C. Three. Po and put my gold glitter over my face show up at at a game and watch the giants lose or the lines lose by thirty points the other thing Melvin Gordon not a great day to be you again. nope Austin I snack later had him had he fumbled but he had a pretty good game and so- Melvin Gordon paid off or you pay the chargers update his now paid the chargers orders. I think six hundred thousand dollars and they've paid Austin Eker seventy five thousand dollars so they're just they're happy with the situation because they're making bank. The a fumble was very big and ball security is job security so if you're Melvin Gordon you're just rooting for him to continue to fumble if if the term fumblitis gets attached to him yes he's he's got the fumbles then you can make a case that you need me back Barstool goal dot com slash. PMT IF YOU WANNA watch all of our episodes barstool goal dot com slash PMT. We've got a guest coming on Wednesday. If you WANNA watch that it's an awesome warning pig and grow taller than Gronk Vikings packers. Yes dalvin Cook is awesome. The Vikings things went away from the playbook that we told them works. Don't let your quarterback be a quarterback. Don't let kirk cousins throw the ball more than ten times in a game. He threw thirty two points. That's almost four times more than ten. How many completions do you think he had a thirty to seventeen fifteen fourteen fourteen fourteen completions out of thirty two with two interceptions the vikings just run the ball in play defense and their defense figured figured out Matt Aaron Rodgers and Matt Leflore in the second half because the packers looked unbelievable in the first half and they completely shut them down in the second half but they had kirk cousins who had to bring them back and you can't do that you can't you can't let kirk cousins who you pay a lot of money to throw the football? Throw the football yeah. Nothing in this world will break your spirit faster than having to be a fan that gets excited for Kirk cousins on Sunday because you have to talk yourself into it. If you're vikings fan right you like he's GonNa put he can win this game for us. I I tried to do this for two years in DC and it is so depressing being like Kirk is going to win this game for us and actually like believing in them going into game and he's the worst kind of quarterback because he's the kind that's good enough where when he fucks up it really hurts you you. It's not like he's Nathan Peterman where he throws interception. You like Let's say Peterman. It's funny his fitzpatrick where he throws a pick six and you're like hilarious. He's still league. He is good enough to give you enough. Hope where then when he fucks up he totally totally like drives you into deep depression. He's he's like magic I back in the day when we had the magic ibooks and you just have to cross eyed to to try to see what you WANNA see. MHM You have to cry. You have to go cross eyed every Sunday morning. If you're a vikings fan to try to see a quarterback yeah and you just stare at him for long enough and you think that eventually quarterback will pop out and you're like no. It's still piece of Dog Shit. Yes another one shitty okay. I'll turn the calendar to October. Maybe it'll be quarterback then not to break character or break. Break the show up. But how much computer battery do you have because I'm about to die thing here you go you got you got more than An. I'll give you some juice all right yeah. I'm swimming in power over here. A show that shirt as a as an all time shirt the Nathan Peterman shirt yeah Peterman fake fuck you hank also breaks also not to break the show up pink Whitney's the niece. Let's talk about him. Real quick for any stories out there. Who've been off the grid for the past few weeks we teamed up with our partners at New Hampshire Vodka to make our signature drink the pick pink Whitney NIA official after rounds of taste test we came across seriously smooth blend of pink lemonade flavored vodka and we knew we had to bottle this one up the the pink Whitney's perfect over ice shield is shot topped off with a Little Club soda either way this Game Changer on deck for Tailgates and watch parties is fall and if you can't find a bottle auto yet tell those pigeons at the liquor store to get some cases in stock brought to you by our partners at New Amsterdam Vodka's the official vodka the NHL? They're on a mission to help you find your wins ends. All season long. Pink Whitney's actually delicious. I like he's had some good Freddie. Indonesia's has a drink named after himself. Can you believe it not cried of scituate with Massachusetts gas in Whitney's and chuck. That's what they do. Leave -able that he has his own drink pink Whitney's. Check them out New Hampshire and vodka okay colts titans. The field was on fire. Yes the speaker caught fire pre game. That was awesome. I love this happens every now and then wasn't there. Would there's usually dumpster fires. I think maybe the lines were. Maybe it was the saints there was a dome that had the turf on fire couple years from like a pyrotechnic. This was a speaker that was completely engulfed in flames only explanation. I thought Oxford Ha they handed handed swag ducks scored Swag Kelly Pumps Shit pre-game. He had that spotify lists going absolutely it was a viking funeral country music basic so the real story here is editor. Auditory is GONNA retire tomorrow. Well are we today's reporting. You don't think he's got that press. Conference I would assume Terry could be holding a press conference in in calling the media together on a Monday morning for any number of reasons. We don't know that it's going to be like hey I fucked up. I'm sorry guys hey let me ask you this avenue -Tarian going in the hall of fame mm as a colt or as one of ours Patriot Patriot one of us thinks more rinks more rings. I don't even no longer be Klay longer indie though right and all the ten thousand six I think but you don't there's no memorable Adam sanitary moments on the colts. You want a super bowl forum. There's nothing nothing printed in your memory of like game when kick of the rams here's what I remember from time in Indianapolis when he made a field goal and then Tony Dungy Anji said that guys on the sideline he's like I've got a guy he he's GonNa Retire. His money is would miss what he missed. Two extra points in a field goal Miss Sexual Point yesterday or last week to one so that's got to count for something and the titans they are a classic team where you think you don't they are but I know exactly what they are and they just play ugly ass. Games and Marcus Mariota is most frustrating quarterback in the world to walk. There's a gentleman's agreement between every team team in the NFC SOUTH AFC south that says we're never going to play a fun game to watch together yeah. It's all going to be but ugly. Shit fests and we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA win in twelve to thirteen. We're going to win seventeen to fourteen and we're GONNA do that every single time we get together. No one's going to like it and then when the playoffs come around no one's GonNa know how to I bet on us. I feel like Marcus. Mariota is allergic to throwing three hundred yards he can't do it. I think it I think that's fair totally fair to say that I also think the gym is going to go hog ugh wild down in Nashville tonight after winning a game there by like every single guitar and oprey land that Jim irsay outfit that you tweeted the other day when he was wearing a suit coat and under under armor sweatpants and sketchers Holy Lash Air Force has got style know asking God that's gotTa be so awesome though to be so rich which that you can wear whatever the fuck you want and no one will say hey man you look like an Asshole Robert Kraft shirts for years. What I mean look a dollar? It's a ridiculous ship but because he's Robert Kraft. No one's going to be like kraft. Why wouldn't you just get a collar? That's the same colors there's your shirk as Mr Craft exudes excellent his aides models in the fashion which clearly you know nothing you're right. It's unreal. If you're this rich you can just wear a sweatshirt and be like well would actually cost two thousand dollars if you hate on it. If you're wealthy then you can just wear the exact same thing every day. Steve Jobs did that. That's true lady from that Scam Company took your blood did that their nose Elizabeth homes that every successful person's own billy billy McFarland he wears an orange jumpsuit every single day yeah only very very wealthy people can do this. It's the really is what as they say goals to to someday be so rich that you can dress. It's like an asshole and have no one say a word no ass no ass no ass whatsoever. which by the way I there's a picture out there floating meet today at asked I gotta I gotTa do some squats? October's come around the corner no asking oversight what would it looks like Shit just falls out of my what is sir mix a lot say verdict asking do all the side bins and sit ups but don't lose that butt big. Ah I need squad Tober needs to get here. I think my butts bigger than yours yet probably I have. I don't have a big dumper. I got two big old chunky. Yeah Okay Thank Patriots forty-three Dolphin Zero actually. I don't know why I said Hank. Pf because you need to answer my patients know your dolphins your dolphins are going to go down as the worst team in NFL history and you said they were GonNa win. Seven Games I would rather I would rather be on the wrong side of the worst. Take of all time then be on the wrong side of like a mildly bad take because I've been I've been in in both situations before more often than not but getting something so oh colossally wrong as the dolphins going sixteen the reverse seventy-six that would be I would be proud to have an all-time bad taste like that and you thought it though Ooh that's the worst part is you actually did think you're like Ryan. Fitzpatrick's going to get him a few wins. Only the great ones can be so confident and something so wrong and not willing to get off that that hill before they die out. I'm going to be like Andy Dalton on the field dying on this bad take. I think okay did probably won't go seventy seven from here on out. Mika Fitzpatrick is looking for a trade and and they're trying to train them which is ridiculous because first round draft pick last year they've got. They're trying to trade Kenyan drake to try to trade drake. Okay yeah get tricks often. Are we're going to break. I think they are going to break record this year for biggest point spread. They have right they will they play the patriots week seventeen so that one might not count put. I'm looking looking at it right now like the next next week. They're playing the cowboys at Dallas. I don't probably going to be a probably seventeen eighteen as the spread yeah and let's just say one of the one of the pick sixes today wasn't entirely fits. Magic's fault tells were so okay so I have a statue I is the dolphins opens are being outscored one hundred and two to ten. They're basically an F. C. S. Program trying to play in in the F. B. S. It's it's getting bad. They are I don't even know what like Jacksonville state or someone who's trying to WHO's trying to play Bama every single week yeah so this this might actually get to a point where I'm GonNa start believing the Alabama could beat the dolphins if they trade enough of their guys so there are one hundred and two to ten is is their total points this this year so so far through two games the Patriots scored more points on defense in a one minute and thirteen stretch during this game okay then the dolphins have in one hundred twenty minutes on offense okay so that tells me is that by being so vocal about saying that I'm going to bet on the dolphins cover the spread Fred. I motivated the Patriots they feed off the hate. Well so the other the other good thing the only silver lining we have for the dolphins season at this point is Brian Flora's continues to put in Josh Rosen and give us Josh Rosen Stat Lines Josh Rosen sideline seven for eighteen ninety seven yards and an interception so thank you Brian floors because we can keep the Josh Rosen stat line bit going when you just throw him to. The wolves is so weird because he does it in these blowouts and he's he's like yeah. This is a good time for this guy to learn to yeah no with no pros on the field and a team that just wants to hold a shutout. Let's throw him in there and see if you can make some magic magic it's awful. It's awful the time of the Hank would he get the funniest part about that game was the end that last drive like the game was over his forty-three nothing in flora's and Bella check recalling timeouts like stop the clock like ballot check score and I think it was just like an old buddies going against each other like even though it's forty three nothing and everyone's just WanNa leave. We're not letting this game end. I think bellichik hates flora's now. I think that ever since he left he's like you're not one of my guys. You're not loyal. Only the only assistant that bill actually likes is Josh mcdaniels he because he's the one that was so loyal that he turned down a job he fucked overcome pass caught suits abandoned bronco he absolutely loves Josh mcdaniels because he ruins franchises sizes that are rivals with the Patriots okay so in Bella check fashion Hank because the Patriots are obviously unbelievable and they're going to offensive porn born. I mean it's unbelievable. Antonio Brown like them targeting Antonio Brown to make him happy three or four times in the first drive was like come on but because because ballot check you know he's GonNa sit down and be like you didn't do well. What are you GonNa do about Stephen Guests ASCII because he always extra point? He's terrible Miami and he missed fugel. He looks like he's like ninety percent in all time and he's like seventy percent in Miami so that's just a Miami thing. Just the real problem is a snapping. That's the the only thing that I've noticed watching the film as you can tell that David Andrews is not not playing because there's the shotgun snap are Kinda. Kinda slow okay so there's a there's an issue got center that we have to address okay braiding chef a couple more thousand TEUs US solve important bills the giants bills so let's let's start with this Pat Shurmur last year said about Josh Allen. He has a chance to be a starter denied Shammar. Your fucking idiot idiot disrespectful. Pat Shurmur is still starting Eli Manning Eli Manning didn't have a completion until the second quarter and Eli Manning. I'm woke to this. He's putting up enough stats that. If you look back at his the box score you can reasonably say to yourself not that bad he threw for two hundred yards arts and a touchdown couple of interceptions but if you don't watch the game you can basically sell like maybe it's not just allies fault but if you watch the game it's allies fault. They basically just ran the ball. The only time they had success was the first drive where they just ran saquon. Five Times scored a touchdown all by himself. We should all be hoping the giants win as many games as possible to get Eli to stick around as much as possible because as long as you're in the playoff hunt there still are still not mathematically eliminated yet. I'm not a math genius fitzpatrick but I do know that they're not eliminated after two weeks. The dolphins are the only team that's officially mathematically limited but yet they should absolutely we should be rooting for. La Manning to play well for the well not necessarily from to play well just for the giants to win just for them to not games. They'll beat the redskins they'll be maybe they'll beat them at home and then on the other side Josh Allen. I'm doing a torch update towards being pass from Cam Newton to Josh Allen Love Him has the best running quarterback shut all the haters of which there were many Yup Josh Allen Israel and he's spectacular impact Shurmur saying that quote and Josh Allen going in and shoving it in his face fuck yes dude and that's all I'm gonNA say Fuck Dude Josh Allen to the reporter asked. What do you think you showed New York fans and he's like were in New York right now? We're in New York teen. WE'RE ACTUALLY OVER ONE NEW YORK. We're actually in New Jersey right now. He won on the State Championship. Do you mean the people watching at home. The New York The New York State Championship goes to the buffalo bills there to know in metlife stadium. I wouldn't mind making buffalo the capital of New York. I'm down to do like that. I if the bills are the better team then buffalo boom immediately gets all the state documents the charters all that all these lawmakers have to move from wherever the capital of New Orleans Albany they have to take the train up to Buffalo. Yes no maybe not Albany Syracuse and buffalo those things that like they're all the same but they're so far Albany is buffalo without a football team and without wings yeah so it's like you take the only redeeming the Great Danes the best parts retains the Great Danes where the University of Albany Okay great danger there. Yeah that's it. That's I mean that's great mascot. That's all you got. You're the best thing about you is that you're not New York City purple and something that's the basketball team Albany University of New York Albany pretty sweet named for for team retains eighteenth. Can I ask you a question. Are We sure the Pat Shurmur could coach because I think he fucking socks I think I think he's just got. He's got a pouch in his back. That Dave Gentleman's hand fits directly into so we can make him do whatever he wants. This is awesome because Pat. Shurmur is a classic coach where there's this management owner her weird like fight and you have a guy who onto super bowls and who's going to be a hall of Famer manning so everyone kind of glosses over the fact the patch Shurmur might actually just be a terrible coach yet. Give me Ben mcadoo back. I Miss mcadoo at least had the ball. He had the ball substantial yeah game that really made no sense but he did it. He went out there and did it anyways. He had the weird haircut. I don't even know what Pat Shurmur hair looks like. He always wears a full ball cap. I don't know what he's got it. He might have a Mohawk. It's it's just funny. Be might be totally bald. You get these coaches that they put in these situations where no one will blame the coach. Even though that seems like what we should be saying because he he is the one who keeps starting Eli Manning Gettleman in Mira and Mr Mayor Sorry but yeah Pat Shurmur like what he's he's GonNa. His record is going to be insanely bad if the giants keep losing like I think they will. He's GonNa be yeah but he'll get. He'll keep his job. Because it'd be Daniel Jones Guy. He seems like a guy. That's going to transition transition very easily into being a assistant general manager somewhere. Yeah I feel like Pat. Shurmur is a good football coach. If you take out all the elements of coaching football right he looks the part on. I was pretty good at Vanderbilt. They covered against Notre Dame. I won money on there. He goes so he's he's got that I like him. For that reason he just he seems like a guy that just just as destined to spend his entire life at football facility of some sort just punching in punching out also shurmur probably the boringest name yeah football wise in the league. Yeah I'd say Shurmur Shurmur just yeah it had Pat Shurmur at Shurmur sounds like I'm having a stroke and diarrhea at the same time at Shurmur. Would you say or do you stutter Pat Shurmur. If Eli Manning was a name also Pat Shurmur he also that extra are in there. It makes you think that you're saying it incorrectly correctly Pat Shurmur. You're making me think more about your name that I want to fuck spent. We've spent too much time talking about stupid fucking name already already yeah poor saquon. That's the only other note poor saquon hey been it. I know I know the elbows in the shoulder. Bone Buddy connected to the mall looks like faunal bone. They're gonNA WANNA throw on this poop. I'm pretty cozy. Just just toss it on that little photo bone injury just goes away. They knew I know your your elbows tinguely wing Li like to help you make a few good or if you're a new listener we're talking about the seahawks and the steelers game and Big Ben Getting injured for the billion Cillian time in a row. This one actually thinks I think it's real. He thinks it's real too he definitely no Hilton was weird looking at it. It just didn't really even see what happened. He he just looked like he hit his funny bone and he'll put on his walking boot and he will get in front of the media and he'll say over my fucking walking dead body just Mason Rudolph get to play anymore going out there. Even if I'm hurt which I might not be because I'm a dog that just yelps every time you know something someone drops the key issue any time a skateboard comes near my aw away you make and we have to take you to the vet and it's like seven hundred dollars every fucking time. Can you fake an injury big. Ben Actually wouldn't be shocked if the steelers just have a vet on call forwarding for Big Ben Bribery probably do listen. We we want to give you a real doctor but we actually have a lot of players here and they need medical attention so we're just gonNa have you see the vet every time and he'll give you maybe a little treat. Have you sit and then send you on your way to tell you what this is. This is going to be your individualized trainer's name Caesar Milan and he's just GonNa make Conan calm assertive leader. You'll be fine. He had the quickest trip to the training room of all time today. Before halftime he went in and came out in four minutes yeah so he left he goes into the tunnel. I I think the Vet Guy I think all that can happen essentially walked into the training room farted and then walked back on the field was like I feel better baby burping yeah and then they're like no we need to have. Somebody's got to go. Look at you and what it looked like was the Tommy John Is. What is that what the ligament? UC L. Did Linda come in the grip. The Curve Ball Upright citizens ligament but yeah he's like. It's all tinguely and he can't grip eighty can't throw it if that's actually the case probably going to be out for a while if ben actually really does feel pain which the jury's still out on if it's not all phantom stuff but yeah that would be something I've Mason Rudolph who big Ben notoriously did not trained and to take over his job if mason has to come in for him and then Mason in his post-game comments was doing the thing where he was given all up for Ben. He's like you know I'm I'm ready to play if Ben we'll let me yeah yeah I'm so scared of Ben Rothlisberger what he'll do because Ben Roethlisberger's in that weird spot similar Eli Manning where the the what he's done for the franchise just keeps carrying over whether he's good or not and Big Ben's better than Eli obviously don't get mad steelers fans but he he can get anyone fired at any moment. You could just creek it just well. He probably can't snap his fingers because you can't feels arm anymore his left hand but yeah he would like. There's no way he knows how to do that with. His is left but it'd just click with his tongue. They fire that guy. He's probably so psyched to have like a numb right hand so we can go home jacket constantly. 'cause I got entire weekend on on a date with a stranger fellas I just imagine him going into the locker room and the doctor like grabbing his arm and just wiggling it and he's like Oh my God. Are they going to have to amputate talking doc in the bed you you every time you an extremity is hurt. Yeah Ben you just you just twisted your elbow little. Do you WANNA go back in like no. I don't it's probably GONNA lose steelers. Though is this the end of the Mike Tomlin steelers because their own to now has he lost the locker room. Their defense does not look good and they've invested a little but in their defense and Big Ben is I would say at the end of the road fair I if it is the Ucla if it is the Tommy John Thing then there's no chance you'd be able to. I know Josh Allen had a similar thing last year yeah where he had like a pinched nerve or something weird going up but if it's bad then I don't think he's going to be able to play. I think that this could be the beginning of the in forbid been which I'm very very upset about it. Mason Rudolph wasn't that bad no he wasn't he was decent so you get to the point. Where like okay well? Maybe Mason Rudolph is the guy either way the seahawks now to know they're for real. They find ways to win. what's his name lock. It is the new Doug Baldwin Russell. It wasn't just throws it to him. Whenever in trouble whenever needs a first down and it works and I mean it was I think it's more an indictment on the steelers and 'cause Week Guan? We said the Patriots are just that good and Mike Tomlin just can't ever beat the Patriots but then to have your home opener and the seahawks come in and it feels like it's a game you should be able to win. I don't know I don't know where the steelers go will. Decay metcalf is pretty good too yeah so it looks like he's going to be good red zone target. He's like he's he's. He is big as Fox Kelvin. Benjamin was went Keto for like two months. He's got that Aesthetic East Kelvin Benjamin I'm GonNa call them from now on his cut up east cut up and he can run different routes that I'm told because I've seen a lot of videos on the seahawks main twitter account that show him running like a dig route that absolutely sucks with their but they say like well. Oh you can do other things of Tom. Brady right yeah that was that was what it was can't turn and that's fine so yeah I think and James Connor got hurt too so so still some trouble yeah. Their medical staff is working overtime. Slash vets also Russell Wilson sucked at sliding today. I don't know if you saw that he was terrible. It usually is one of the best because people forget he was a baseball player Yup so knows how to slide but he was terrible. He was getting his foot caught in the turf. He was like diving Ford Field. Though it's Heinz field you have to yeah but I was thinking who are the all time worst sliders history quarterback is I got a flat goes up there. FLACCO dismember the time that he just shattered his his knee brace forrest Gump Iwo ally was my number two looks like he's going to tear every every single bone ever break every bone terror every single minute in his legs whenever he tries Slot Ben Rothlisberger is pretty bad attitude because he just kind of fall. He just puts his face for yeah. That's where I want to go to that blade of grass quick way to get my landing putting my face on it yeah and then. Rg Three obviously are every time he slides. I just think I actually think he's going to explode speaking of Rg three the cowboys and Redskins even though he's not on the redskins anymore four but he'll always be Jack continues his you should pay back. tour paid out. Kellen Moore continues his. I'm actually a real offensive coordinator Jason Jason Garrett what is even do here tour and I don't know the redskins are just one of those teams that are just floating in nowhere floating aimlessly have role identity entity. They have no like their coach won't be their coach for very long. Why aren't they playing Dwayne Haskins? That's a good question why well because he trade for case keenum in case keenum is Jay Gruden's ideal quarterback. Why why when you draft a quarterback in the first round I mean it's the same thing with Daniel Jones? I don't know why just don't it drove me crazy and we'll get to Mitch but it drove me crazy when when the bears did that and it was like just play your guy because my my Sean Salisbury actually changed my mind with that because I always was of the belief that if you put put a guy in early any any fails he'll have you know like who you'll see things in and it won't work long term he can get basically scarred but but Sean Salisbury said if if guy get scarred he'd never was going to be the Guy Anyway right. You're being like you either have it or you don't either have the ability to overcome you know getting beat up and taking your lumps or you don't so might as well just do it now because if they play case keenum all year then now Dwayne has a rookie next year. What's the point I actually you think there's something to be said from like a GM perspective to not playing? You're your quarterback his rookie year because the person golden ticket well he won't take it which which is like Job Security Number One Jeff Fisher todd is set for longtime oh yeah but also it's less likely to be labeled as a bust if it's a second year player coming in for the first time like right now if Dwayne Haskins was in an absolutely suck Dick. It's real easy to be like hey that's a bust insider yeah but if he comes in his his sophomore year or second year and he doesn't in play well it's like oh he's not gonNA work out. He's not the future but he doesn't get the bus chain put around his neck like he would if it was his rookie. I just don't understand why you wouldn't if you have no identity as a team when you have no playoff hopes and you're just kind of floating aimlessly at least give your fans some hope with a guy playing we do have an identity as a clown car full of buttle yeah it sucks and the cowboys are good. The cowboys are permission to go there. Dan Snyder Yeah Dan snow celebrate owner. Dan Snyder sell the team. I'm talking to you right now. You're you're great owner. Whereas Stephen Jones has thirty one other? NFL owners will tell me you are a great owner and they love having you as a part of the leaks they kick your ass all the time but sell the team your guy that grew grew up rooting for the words you care very much about them right now. Your legacy is going to be the person who destroyed the thing you love the most in life. That's actually in cool legacy. If you sell the team then you have a chance to be known as the person who saved the thing that you grew up loving the most. He likes he loved He. He loved the Redskins so much. He hugged them so hardy suffocated them. Yes that's kind of cool. He loved his how much love you have. It's cosette crawling under Christopher's but but Yup Little Cosette Christopher was high on Arizona's dog yeah because he was so high on H. On the junk and then they tried to save the he ah crawled under bought for three four and it was probably yeah I don't know typical shapes deep on eternal started nagging him about killing killing her dog up woke up one morning and there you were with your hair in the toilet water disgusted no Silvio's intervention. Dan siders sell the fucking team. You have a chance to be the person who saved the redskins against by instilling yourself by yeah yeah either sell the team or just like jump out of your helicopter Poku. Yes Cammisa Poku or do the the old chalet delay in a revolutionary trick and throw yourself out of the helicopter okay so cardinals Ravens Cuyler Murray. Pfc Don't get triggered. earmuffs color. Murray looks even shorter like every single week good. He's getting shorter good. I take him like man that Guy Short he was a show off when you went to the combine and clocked in at five ten he's short yeah he's very short and it's also got a big helmet which because he's so sure he's like a walking bobblehead and it's kind of cute watching them play back there. He didn't really run the ball this the backyard baseball guy that's exactly we will blow looks like Pablo Skoda's in in red and white and Yeah I. I don't know if he's is good or not yet. I think that he's better than he looked in the first half. It takes some time to get cliff. Kingsbury system works well. Here's what I don't understand about cliff Kingsbury and I hate coaches in general we you know we talked about the the Eagles Falcons game. I Love Doug Peterson. I've said it many times he goes for it. He takes moments and he grabs me by the balls he's like yeah. I don't Care Cliff Kingsbury. You're supposed to be this offensive genius guy. You're supposed to bring up this UPTEMPO. You can't beat US offense. That's why you were hired. MHM The cardinals in the red zone fourth and wanted to four field goal fourth goal at the three field goal fourth and goal at the two field goal what the fuck dude. You could've won this game if you just if you just said Hey we're GONNA go. If you go for it and you get two out of three of those times you you win the game and I think that my math is right yeah. My math is right. They lost six. They ate more points so you just need to get two out of three of those converted. Maybe that Matt doesn't work either way. Go for it. Go for more often or you're saying. I don't understand if you if you have four. If you can't get one yard then I mean I would rather die. I would rather lose trying to get one yard on fourth and goal on the one then just slowly die kicking field goals every time you get down there. I think he's just terrified going up against defenses that don't play in the big twelve so he's like. I can't get a first down here. It's not I'm not playing against TCU anymore playing against Baylor well. You know what I mean like. Just just if you're we're supposed to be this guy. Why are you turtles so much and you have color Mur you can't you can't get collar Murray into space and let him get you a first down? It seems crazy so your name can't be cliff Kingsbury and be a pussy when it comes to going right. You're constantly. You're hot. You're on the sidelines. You're wearing your sunglasses. Erase looks hot no matter who you are if you put on a pair of shades it yet you should be going for more often. I agree with that. I also had written down here that Larry Fitzgerald's Never GonNa die not not his big butts. Somehow gets wide open. Guess what Hispanic Bucket Wide Open on a fourth one yes box out him out. He's a guy that has the exact opposite ass of you and hang commercial and Jim Ursa Yup. He's got a little bubble but he can just stick out there and get some separation. He's the guy that no matter how long you plays in the NFL I will always be able to identify Larry Johnson just by his shots just from his body type. Yes his body type is is very unique to any other player in the league with with the dreads in the in the bubble we even if dreads weren't around yeah. He just looks different as wide receiver. I don't know what it is about Lamar Jackson get ready because we five we're going to get into it will be deserved if he keeps playing the way he is. We'll get the Lamar Jackson for MVP talk yeah because he had almost four hundred yards rushing and passing through everything he ran for one hundred twenty yards he was slicing and dicing them up so get ready for Lamar. Jackson is the real deal. Is it time to say that maybe Lamar got better this off season because they got rid of their diva wide receiver Joe FLACCO interesting. We'll get Joe FLACCO. He stinks we will he thinks he stinks art. Jaguars Texans Doug Marrone is fighting his players and we lost it was it was a ver- is disagreement on the said afterwards that he doesn't even remember it. He doesn't recall the very football guy thing to do. It was over-challenged so Ramsey wanted him to challenge a play in Ramsey shoved them. Yeah coming off the field so -t's Doug marrone had a right to be like hey man. I'm the coach I will also say Doug marrone going for two on the road love that yes I love that movie so that's the thing like if you're at the end of the of the game in its one point and and you just scored a touchdown. I always say like you're on the road gopher like what what do you have to lose gopher to try to steal one on the road but then if it's at home I always say go for it. You're at at home. You've got the crowd behind you. Always go always go down by one at the end of the game. Just say fuck it and go for it because you know what this is. This is one of the situations where your team will love love you for doing it because there's nothing that a team hates more than you putting your faith in kicker right and garment. You had an awesome drive to. I used to get within one. I'm a big believer in your offenses humming. Why would you take them off the field? Let them go for to let them try to win the game right there and Got Gardner Menchu I mean he is. We're going to get to in football guy the week he swaggie yeah. He's awesome and I'm excited to watch them every single week you know I I love Gardner Menchu's because he always looks like somebody that's dressing up as Gardner Menchu for Halloween yes he's got all these hostile who's got all these different looks about them a- and they're all equally swaggie cool and weird and every single one of them you could go as slutty garment shoe and pull off a Halloween costume. No problem also his dad pretty easy on the eyes. I don't know if you saw him. In the stance that is a diesel good-looking guy meet bill is he's a big time Delfi that he had a visor on the hair was flowing yeah good. Is it time to ask does Gordon You have the hottest dad of any. NFL was again Flint Flint change it to Gartner because his son also the second I also Linford that sucks yeah he does but we already knew that but now it's official he sucks he approaches the line of scrimmage like Levy on bell with mono young take a sweet time in the backfield takes five steps and then try to make it as easy he will average two point seven yards per carry every single season until he's out of the lease is Trent Richardson passing the torch gotTa than that I know he's better than that but in the similar vein of just kinda getting to the line and not seeing holes in just getting tackled every single time after work. Maybe he has phobia. ooh He's terrified of seeing holes yeah. He can't see a symmetrical. I'm going to go with that. That's what it is I before I label him as officially having triple phobia. I want to see some screen shots like we go Trent Richardson of Hey should've gone here this week. In Oh my God the Texans are ruining Shawn I. I can't believe this. Please get free Sean from Bill O'Brien three tweet me re tweet reunion retreat me. Shawn Watson has been good news segments. It is because segment I I mean. I can't stand these people. It's they pretend like this is the first time a quarterback's been ruined by a coach welcome to the NFL the National Football League. each regains for more more sacks. That's a record. It's not great. Lakes Yikes to Shawn Watson gets his ass kicked every single week. chiefs chiefs raiders just chill out Patrick Mahomes. It's too much east showing everyone up. He had four touchdowns in the second quarter ready for this. This were his last five passes in the second quarter forty two yard touchdown pass thirty two yard completion forty three yard completion completion twenty seven yard touchdown pass thirty nine yard touchdown pass. He threw three touchdowns in his last five throws in the second quarter and he had every single completion over twenty seven yards so many put together the stats of if if Patrick Mahomes was not allowed to play inside the thirty yard line how many touchdown passes he's avenues avenues career. It's insane how Andy Reid get so many people and how many games he would win if he wasn't allowed to play inside the thirty it's crazy he is so goddamn good and and yeah I mean he's just I don't know it was it was it was just perfect coincidence that the bears just can't score touchdowns and Patrick Mahomes had four and one quarter is that it was was just a weird coincidence same time. Let's talk about doing where Mitchell was drafted. Jon Gruden Derek Carr that is going to be a messy messy break Dirk Dirk Kars nuts it happening. He's not good Jon. GRUDEN is going to have a stroke on the sideline and the thing is you're not going to be able to tell when Jon Gruden has a stroke because he'll always does the scowl with one side of his face face anyways Yup and so no one's GonNa no. He probably has already stroked out a couple of times. I so Derek Carr is so weird to me because I don't think he's good but when he is good he is like a gunslinger and you gotta let him loose in. It feels like Jon. Gruden is doing the opposite sometimes where he's trying to get their car to not make mistakes. I think there are cars that type of guy. You just have to tell him. Just go do it and yeah there'll be a couple of mistakes but you also be able to throw the ball around. gunslinger feels like a rebrand that Derek Carr put on himself he probably did he probably got that media. Yeah it's not a bad narrative out there. If you suck enough quarterback just like whispered to reporter like Tacoma the gunslinger now throw seven interceptions. It just feels like he I don't mean the relationship was never gonNa work and we all know it's not gonNa work and it's going to be extra awkward. When Derek Carr has the House that he's building right next to Jon Gruden in Las Vegas like way to go yeah? It's GonNa be Weird living in his pool house. Go over to John gruden's house asking for a cup of sugar yeah. It's it's not good and Derek Carr. I feel like he is. He's got too much pizzazz for Jon Gruden to fall in love with him his quarterback yeah like he's a little bit too exciting and that's saying something about how Jon Gruden Lexus quarterbacks he likes his quarterbacks to be just like a blank slate like someone who's either been around the League for long enough that they're just burnt out and hate everything and don't have any passion one way or the other like your jake plumber at the end of his career when he was down in Tampa Bay right He. That's what he likes. He likes rookie that he can mold into having that same person he doesn't like Derek Carr because Derek Carr has been established in Oakland. Yes Sir you know quote unquote the franchise quarterback for the raiders in so it's kind of his house you're coming into so John GRUDEN'S GONNA definitely kick them out of the House. and it's happening sooner than later. Nathan Peterman Peterman is GonNa play or Mike Glennon He's GonNa play as well. I'm excited for that. I'm excited for the messy messy. Break up a quick word to the NFL fuck you for the four Oh five star. I can't stand it. I didn't know this game was in Oakland now. A reasonable person would say hey big cat. You had literally all week. You had actually like six months to know. This game was being played in Oakland because there's a schedule you can read it. You can do all that and I I say fuck you because I'm always at the four o'clock witching hour time. I'm like losing my brain trying to win. Bets trying to hold on and then I'm trying to put in new bets while the old vets are still being played out and I don't look at those Kinda facts so I thought this game was being played. In Kansas City. I said Kansas City City Kansas City minus seven. That's stealing known goes into Arrowhead and beats them yeah and then boom turn on the game. There's a baseball field and I was confuses uses hell so the says made a whole lot more sensitivity. Make him the same interest that one game that you have to be like Oh fuck. I gotTA rushing again this bit in. We're not in Kansas anymore. Is We should have said that but yeah I I want. Propulsion agreed just like there should not be a four or five start time in general yeah. Every game should start at four fifteen. Yeah it's bullshit. Oh Shit. It's bullshit. Give me some some some time of bathroom uniformity. Go take a shit after the early games are done because you know you put on pants for the first time at four oh five there are still three or four games that you bet on for the one o'clock games that are completely up in the air. Give me a second to feed the dog that I forgot to feed his breakfast. When I woke up in the morning yes gives like a brief response from also somebody tweet at me? I don't know who was I lost the tweet but had a great idea which is at the at the Las Las Vegas Facility for the raiders at their new stadium that they're building. They should have on the field turf a baseball diamond like it not not the actual dirt but the color turn into the field term. I think oh I think vanderbilt does that. Vanderbilt has not dirt put it's I think it's colored field turf all around. Maybe that maybe I made that up. Whatever the the warning track is not dirt then what it is still feels like a school that would like try not to get its players dirty at all yeah overrun to Penn State Dude? That's fine all your problems. They'll cover up problems there. okay Lewis doesn't a dirt warning track kind of defeat the purpose of having a warning track that you can feel underneath your feet that it changes as we we never warning track yeah. I don't have dirt worrying trend. They have a color. That's what I'm saying. Yeah feet the point correct. I agree okay. Let's talk about the bears offense before we do that. Let's do Velveeta fell.

Thanks to Velveeta the cream team chess pass the bears offense. Let's talk about a big cat. They're doing a lot of ARPAIO's. This is first of all we want. There's one one on a win is a win win in this league ugly an ugly win is a win okay. Winning ugly still counts winning meltdown avoided the bears are a parody of every bears team that's ever been created and that means the defense is great and the offense just makes you you want to cry Puke do everything except watch it and it's so fucking frustrating and I don't even know at this point like we go the bears. There's go back and forth. It's one week week one. The bears don't run the ball Mitch throws it forty five times and you say how the Faulk is ever going to work then you go this week where matinee doesn't trust Mitch whatsoever to throw the ball even ten yards down the field and guess what you can't win like you can't move the ball when that happens so you end up with Mitch throwing for one hundred twenty yards and running the ball more than you pass it just figure out what the answer is and I know say we'll Mitch stinks. I listen I don't. I don't think he's thinks I think they need to just figure out a way to win with using the things that he's good at. I always think that if you have a dominant defense it actually hurts your offense because your offense gets solo home run being a rally killer exactly get so self conscious about yourself. You're like Oh man. They're so good and we're not as good and then you play worse because you don't have the same confidence. Guess what though you gotTa kick we got kicker. Eddie Pineyro unbelievable God's plan. He doesn't make that anywhere mile high but I don't give a fuck mile high by three yarder and the bears are one on one and I think every single game is going to be exactly. Yes pain awful football game where the defense is like Nick Roquan. Smith is a Stud Eddie. Jackson is a stud cleal mce Stud and I know what Broncos fans are going to say the Chubb roughing the passer Sir was bullshit fine. If you WANNA say that that's fine but guess what they called it like that all game because the Leonard Floyd roughing whatever the I don't even know what the call was. He had one that was equally as she landed on the yes so they were calling a shitty game and guess what we ended up with a better call at the end. You can't really blame it like it was pretty even evenly poor officiating throughout it was consistent and Dick Stockton works. We're getting so pissed off the booth mercer. If you WANNA do wants to fight Garrett Bowles he he wants to go down there and fight him because he wants to be like you don't know how to play this position he wants he wants to fight him. He also wants to fight Roger Goodell. He wants to fight everybody him and Dick Stockton. We're basically he's standing on top of each other. In the booth. There were so close side by side their nipples. We're touching. I don't know if you saw that there's just like they had their arms to the whole time. Just lamenting about how this great game is going to shit and it was the officiating did kind of suck especially on those two calls one of them. I thought the one against the broncos worse though because it was as Mitch was in the act passing and he put his foot coz bullshit gear polls was so bad that they showed there was a holding on the Broncos and they just put Garrett Bowles on camera and they're like actually was on a different guy and then slur was said will they show it was on a different guy. Polls held to Yasser held he was also holding you can call it on every every play. The KOOL aid is fucking launch and I'll ready. I'll say something nice about Joe flacco. He won the game. He stinks but he he had a nice drive at the end. When the bears were completely gassing they used the whole altitude achieve which was real but then you use you as cheat on your kick? It is true so it goes both goes both ways even though it literally just goes up but yeah it was we flacco. He's never been excited in his life. He's never been upset and his entire life. He's just kind of always there. Joe flacco is is the lead leaguer in being the league leader in being there. He's a ride times. He's always hanging out. You know that you can count on to put together one good driver game but there's nothing that he loves more in this world than throwing a ball into the flat. Joe FLACCO has a fetish and not well for three yard out. It's not well. It's third and seventeen. He sees a guy in the flat. It's like verbal meam. Joe flacco is the boyfriend and the girl next to him. That's his girlfriend is completing a pass more than twelve yards downfield on third and long and then the girl that's walking by is inaccurate dump off pass to the flat fucking fucking loves it and he's you're right. You'd think that he would be better at it for some love so much but he's not that Guy Lafitte some guys love leather. He likes throwing a ball to WHO's tight end that will get tackled for yards. It is true. He is always around in like the Creator. NFL narrative season to season. He's he's like your fifth friends so you don't really want to hang out with but you know that. If you have to find someone to go out with you can always check somebody like yeah. I'm in yeah. I got nothing. I never have anything going on. Appreciate appreciate calling me. Yeah I four friends that you actually like and then the fifth one comes up. You're like Yok all right well yeah. I guess we'll Joe Night. Let's do it his dad's rich yeah fuck. Eh also my other note is Vic Fangio had an all-time outfit on the side unless they built gets yeah higher and higher. It's getting it's he looks like Paul Chris Chris Stepdad. You can't win like fucking boring not win like that Vick you got. You got to change your look. I know you don't think it matters but it does yes so the bears it was a win that it was exciting but also left me being like we're Kinda fucked because I don't know how we're going to keep winning games like this when we play like the Broncos aren't good and the bears barely beat them good news for you you know next week the redskins exactly slaughter back to my house. The was the what's Anti Bernard his own appearance Beers back to my house quick nap boot rally yeah. No you take quick nap before Monday night football we'll do we'll do mares bet on this game but I have zero confidence congratulations on being tune one who feels good okay last game for we'll get to WHO's back in some football guy the week Saints Rams drew brees is hurt and he's hurt baton and he's going to be out for a while. I think he's going to miss half half the season. ooh Yeah weeks thumb thumbs not not good. It seemed like it was similar to what Jay Cutler had a few a few diabetes know thumbed there you go. That's what he had This is going to have to have thumb surgery. I think I don't think he's GonNa be only WanNa see drew brees for many weeks and if we do see him and he guts out and he's like I'm just GonNa play. He's going to be bad yeah. No you can't grip the ball like that so he he basically got hurt giving a high five at high speed to earn Donald Right. He also got her who also got hurt later on yeah so now teddy came in and Teddy's one of those guys where you want him to play well because you wanna get that whole stink of him getting hurt and the Vikings he's puking on the field on the practice field and Rudolf crying all that behind them put all that behind him and I want teddy to be back and be good quarterback because it seems like a nice guy and he seemed like he was on on the verge of being good when he got hurt but when I watch them play it's like watching the Linda brothers do the tight rope thing yeah where I'm watching and I'm excited but in the back of my mind and I'm just I'm thinking that the worst might happen. Yes every single at all times also sucks to be tasteful hill because essentially you are Sean Payton's Ghouma and keep saying hey. When are you going to divorce your wife and settled down with me? guess what he's not. He's not going to do he's not going to he's not going to are still going to be his tastes. Hill is a slam piece. Yeah you aurigny nights for grandma. Nothing less yeah. No what you are and be happy with it. He must be upset. He must be pretty pissed off. Yes Oh such and champagne has definitely been saying in in conversations behind closed doors like tatum. You're like I love you more than I love drew someday. We're GONNA. We're GONNA get a place together. Run away. I'm going to I'm going to get this marriage annulled withdrew and we're going to get married and we're GONNA make this official have kids and everything and then this happens. He's like what what happened. Yeah Oh. I'm your Ghouma okay. I know where we are. I know where he's a guy you fuck. He's not the Guy Mary Yeah so sorry tatum the rescue the saints so he's The guy you soak. Yes yes for the rescued. The Saints Again Yup so that's fun that we get to do that again. My Favorite Move Sean Penn did was he. He does this a lot. He'll throw challenge flag on a play that he can't challenge just to make the refs. Watch more replays and fucked yes. It's a great move. I just get like a little extra like five to ten minutes of Berating official to their face. Why do they blow it? Dead never blow it dead. Don't they're tired. Let them play. They're tired. They just WANNA break. Yes Oh the rams. Gut it out. I know they actually kind of dominated but I don't know how you judge scheme without drew brees so I don't know I mean drew. brees is going to be this might be. We said that before the season this might be the end for a few of these quarterbacks. It feels like the end for you like well. Eli might ally actually if you said Big Ben and drew brees and ally who's the safest Eli probably he's healthy is Z. Because he always goes self sacks himself. I was asking hank this earlier hank between between the fan bases the Patriots and the saints it was probably the two ones that have like the biggest gripes biggest rivalry against commissioner goodell in the NFL. Would you say is Goodell's big rival. I think the saints are because the Patriots Fans I was lucky enough to be there twice had been there as the goodell has had the a hand than the Lombardi trophy and then get the boom which kind of gives them dominance over cadel. The saints haven't had that you know that come to Jesus moment they haven't got to like laugh in in his face and rub it in his face so they're the ones with the fire in their belly. They're the ones that are still like they have something to fight for. It's not a rivalry if if it's one sided right right right right so until Roger Goodell Suspends Antonio Brown and the Patriots for signing him and Robert Kraft for getting hand jobs then and at that point you'll still have the domination over and being like what are you three and one against goodell something like that to know since I mean deflate gate deflate gate two zero six to two one. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA okay to once deflate gate so yeah you guys are dominated. The saints are basically Goodell's whipping boy. Whenever goodell needs to flex his authoritarian muscles he calls favorite to the refs against the saints? Make sure fuck something gets off on it okay. Let's do who's back. Pfc Before we do that.

She was cursed. Go Go. He won the Alot Hawke Cup first place champion peak choose on his back. I mean honestly like one of those things where he's been. He's he's been going at it for so long. I was such a kid when he got in the League for him to finally would be a huge. I can't wait for the e sixty on that. Tom Rinaldi crass catch him.

Oh why it's pitchy fallen off you know he's just like a glue guy. He's ashes you yeah okay Gotcha so it's the best cards are are Black Lotus then Mutu. I'm so fucking lost bulbous or scored with turtle the Africa the score skurdal's like the lowest all Carmen Shit that squirrel the turtle was so cute blast toyed goes it goes skurdal than Boldizsar. Thank income last toyed where did Cassius marsh finish in this tournament. That's magic the gathering different tournament other who's back the same thing. The Bulls are back in the news because if you flipped look upside down it looks like a crab fucking a robot fucking crap yes. There's some positive news for Chicago. Their logo bears are one of one asshole. Take the Bulls logo and flipped upside down like a robot bang. Yeah this goes viral like every five years. I was GONNA say it does look like a robot. fucking crab is basically what Jason Winded indeed the Redskins this weekend in Maryland fun fact ready for this fun fact the Chicago Bulls are the only team in NBA to never change your logo. That's it's really fun. That's a fun fact great. Maybe should know there's interational. You've never changed. It just fun fun right yeah yeah things that were cooled back in nineteen. You said it was a fun fact right today. Fun Fact Fun facts called history PFC You're my who's backing the weakest Tim Tebow so Tim Tim Tim Tebow think he said all time records for me and who's bet he's been back probably like seventy times in the history part of my dad take. Tt Tim bad take Tim was back on Friday he was on I take or maybe get up one of those shows and he was talking about the AA and he was saying basically that the NC double a. a players shouldn't want to get paid. They should want to be there so that they can provide joy to the university enjoy to fan base and there's too much greed in this world already and and so paying the players would add to that already pre existing condition of people wanting to get paid. Does Tim tebow realize that not every player actually in fact I would say ninety nine point nine nine nine nine nine nine nine nine percent of NCWA football players do not win in a national championship as the quarterback and become like darling for an entire state and basically have money forever purpose of that. If Tim Tim tebow drank he would never have to buy another beer in Florida. It's insane that he can't for one second. Hey maybe it's not sweet for everyone. Everyone else and do you see rebel got him or would he say he got him good. Tim Tebow in his famous speech like his promise speech. We who who's had less sex Tim Tebow or dinner reveal who because you have to imagine that we caravel like every time he's had sex with his wife. I think he's only one you you can only count by children because I think he only banks to procreate yeah. Anything else is a waste of time yeah. That's just having sex twice fast yeah so Tim Tebow on his famous promised speech was actually wearing his logo that he was then GonNa make money off of as soon soon as he graduated from Florida so he was already like playing himself to brand himself and make money off themselves which goes completely really hip hip hypocritical to what his whole point is like you got to play for the team and just love it and love dude. Tim tvos thought process on that was essentially like nineteen thirty yeah it was listening listen. When Tim Tebow played at Florida he had a team full of selfless players around him like Cam Newton and Percy Harbin air and Riley Cooper okay so well while they were there focused on one thing and that's football and that's making the fans happy I do? I do kind of acknowledge one part of this. which is if you're if you're diehard Florida Fan? There's probably part of it that sounds kind of cool who for one of your players to have as much at stake in the team as you put into it words like fucking weird. It's like this guy would play for free and your sucker career. If you say like I would willingly not take money if it's being offered to play by the way. Can we imagine what a recruiting trip must have been like for Urban Meyer to be visiting Tim Tebow and like urban leaves the house and thirty minutes later. Tim Tebow is like a hey coach Meyer. You left a briefcase with thirty thousand dollars. I would let you listen to the police. You left your briefcase here. I wanted to make sure that you've got it back before you got on the plane to the NC double A. conversations socks because it's essentially either people saying that college athletes is is like indentured servitude which it's not or people saying there is not enough money when they're clearly is just figure at the fuck out yeah I figured out it's one of these more than enough money and it also is pretty. It's pretty good deal right now if you get to you know being a college a d. One athlete is probably sweet for other things things but this should probably get paid a little too if you say they do get paid because they get. That's all that's a his kid took a trip to Italy right yeah well then just pay him all right. My nephew play for Tennessee because you're volunteer there in the title. That's contract that you signed kind of kind of related my who's back. I have two of the whose back is urban Meyer because Meyer City Mrs Football. Oh you think that actually could be that because he's definitely going to coach so shout out all the people who said that he actually really was retiring for real this time. You're an idiot and then my other whose back is forgetting that baseball's on on Sundays in September September is like total no-man's-land for and I watch probably eighty five percent of cubs games but when Rizzo sprained his ankle today I was like fuck. I forgot is he does. He looked like he died. Yeah I know that picture was it was not funny but it was funny. High Ankle Sprain was yeah that sucked I mean the cubs snake bit and this year but it is one of those things where you forget get it Sundays every other day I know like cubs plan everything like that Sundays in the fall when NFL is going on you just kind of forget that baseball's happening October comes back because no one forgets playoff baseball but September like there's just think about that. There's just like fifteen sixteen other sports games playing well. NFL's NFL is going on and we try to stand out. They should do color rush on some. They should end the season September first. They tried to do Color Rush David. That's how that's how bad mobias they fucked up color rush. Yeah there Colorado was taking away. All the colors yeah yeah very stupid.

Sore nominees are WILMA's champ. Okay coach of South Carolina who after at Halftime Against Alabama was asked about a challenge flag or some the controversial play and he told the silent reporter. I'm not gonNA comment on that. I'll get fired for the rest of my life if I comment on that which which in itself is the comment on that and it's a craftsy football guy move saying wait. Was it find you said Yeah I'll get fine. I'll be fine sorry fine for the rest of my life comment on that okay yeah. No that's great. It's like I'm not touching you. Yeah it'll get yes. I'm not gonNA talk about it but here. I'm I'm so mad about it because because it was so bad that I would be fine for the rest of my life. If I talk about it. Here's a list of all the things that I'm not gonNA say and I'll start with most egregious violation and I'm not gonNA comment. If I were were to say the refs are absolute buffoons and totally fucked us over. I could say that but I'd be then fine so I'm not I'm not going to sell concern. Doc said he strikes me as a guy that has like his bedroom at home. He just writes on with all the things all his grievances are just scrawled sharpie across everyone well. We've said it before he's just always he looks like a sweaty dog no matter what he's doing he is your sweaty and just a mess just always turning bright red. He's on his collars. She wears golf shirts. Put his callers get fucked up there like you know when when someone really wears golf shirt and you take a couple of buttons down and then the collars are so far more part the how did that happen. He's got bacon neck on on his pollution. Fight your shirt trying to put it on this morning he probably does you gotTa Start Your Day off with a little competition. What I see him doing doing is almost doing the hulk every single time he gets pissed off so he grabs and he starts to rip but then he hears his wife's voice in the back of his head like we'll don't tell your shirt tasing promised wouldn't all right next up? We have Bill Bell CHAC. WHO said if you don't let them score you can't lose that's fact that is a fact that some analysis us for all the people at home? You WanNa Win Games. They'll let them score. That's going to be big Ben's new take next week yeah. That's that's just the smartest thing half the weight. Can we check half the teams lose this week. Have the team loses not yet. We haven't had football direct government you just for being Gardner Minhsiu. He was looking unbelievable getting off the plane he did his stretches in his Thong beforehand confirmed in an NFL locker room talk strap jockstrap so yeah Gartner Minhsiu just being guarded permits you get some on football guy the week and then last one Andrew Yang who is running for president correct yes and he said why would the Democrats have a the democratic debate or Democrat debate on a night where there's football because when we say football thing like voters watch football too yeah which is a fact in fact yeah. I mean I would say that. It's probably better to do it then because then like you can't no one can say hey. You're an idiot or known can watch Joe Biden's teeth heath fall out of his mouth right so there's a lot there's a lot to be gained by bearing yourself underneath ripe broadcast because you're not going to lose the presidency in this debate or you're not GonNa win the presidency. NC In a Thursday night debate but you can definitely lose it if enough people are watching and so yeah if you've got if you've got pink eye if you've been eating ass are you had your lower dentures fall out into your wife's butthole then it would be a bad thing for people to see you on live TV. Andrew Yang is a football guy though I think I think he's got like the turnover chain fan except for taking your guns Yup like Hugh Jackson Elfin a big. SNL Guy he's big universal basic income guy to Oh oh. I don't know salary cap for America. Everybody gets a thousand dollars a month. Oh fuck yet when I interviewed him told him like if you gave me a thousand dollars a month I would spend it on the most ridiculous shit of hand. It's my boy exactly I would. I would just sport bet a lot more on sports and it would buy multiple seduce.

Yeah there you go that seems about right. The breaking news is brought to you by chocolate milk for tastes real good all right sewer respect the Biz for the Washington redskins because they have the worst press box in the world as Edward r pointed out amongst amongst several other correspondents that were in DC for this game right. It's just it's stuck in a corner and under underneath and onyx Snyder you should be thankful that Snyder gives that for free because Snyder usually makes you pay eighty to one hundred dollars to sit behind a pillar which by the way those obstructed views teach should actually be going for more than the seats where you can get a clear view of the redskins sucking ass every week favor yes. That's actually an Amenity Fedex field yeah you don't see what's going on. They should just give you a seat where you get punched in the face until you blackout and don't get to watch any of the game and you forget that even happened and then somebody steals all your clothes off. You don't look like a loser wearing redskins gear. Just shut up like your diet coke. It's free and probably not actually probably not it's probably not well. It is but it's just expired by ten years okay. Let's finish up with our Monday reading this one is from the New York Post and it is called what it's like to be married to a COMP- TO COMPLETE PSYCHO SKIP skip bayless and it's by Ernestine bayless that's right. She's written a book. We are members of the earn hive on this show. Here's a crazy thing thing they look like yeah. It's very bizarre. I needed her to be like look much more like an old bag. I was hoping it was just the trashing attractive but she looks like skip bail in a way that she yeah as attractive skip bayless could be a woman's woman. That's Ernestine. I I love it because skipped SAR and and it was like I don't know what it is about this woman but I'm absolutely drawn to her. Yes because she looks just like him so so there's a little back story they do a little flex where it's like what bail describing his how he watches games in he and his wife's five thousand square foot condo that has three rooms seven TV's cool flex but anyway so we're going to get to the good stuff here so when skip met Ernestine fourteen years ago this is where we pick backup that's it yeah and they actually were engaged. They they dated for eleven years and then got married three years ago. They've only been yeah you think early young lovers you think artists can you you think they've been married for sixty three years and skips only like sixty five okay so she says when they met and they were like courting each other. This sounds very romantic. Mandic skip said I told her I'm married to my job. I always have been and I had this weird feeling. This could go somewhere. I told her if it ever does you'll always be a one eight to my job. She hates me telling that story but it's the God's truth. At least I had divulged myself up front which I think she grudgingly family appreciated that like I said love is not dead. No keeping Ernest I liked that at least he was being honest. I mean if you're getting into relationship with skip bayless. There's probably probably a lot of things you need to know ahead of time but he definitely needs to know that at any given moment skip might just flip out and start ranting about Lebron James Kawhi Leonard Tim Tebow Yeah Yeah all right so for for this story. She emailed the post to promote a new quick read book titled Balls How to Keep Your relationship alive when you live with sports obsess US guy. This is a parody book title. I love it ball. We gotta get Ernst Show Paul's I can't believe I can't believe she beat Mike Greenberg wife to this one point eight balls like that. That's the upset of the century. Isn't it yeah this. This should be written by Mike Greenberg well. I don't think that she would use balls. Title title should have like testes no took us. This took the thing around the other side of the Tuchus scrotum took it all right so she earns I've seen says we don't have a moderator who lives in the House. I'll get it like they always moderate on the you know she says says they do not argue all the time but she also fits her life around his games in his two. Am Weekday wakeup calls though they sleep in separate rooms during the week his treadmill Ed mill workouts can be heard from her bed she wrestles to fall back asleep but always rises a little before four to see skip to the door and wish him luck and his verbal TV battles Shannon Sharpe that this is really truly romance. She makes sure their afternoons or setup so skipped not miss anything in sports. Sports is in sports parts in his veins Ernestine said if you cut him little footballs basketballs will come out. That's pretty sweet skip. The sports guy skipped doesn't miss a game skips skipped a children's. I feel like it skipped broke. Denise skip of He loves sports. I think because paragraph and this is the most endearing version version skip I liked it. They sleep in different bedrooms during the week during the week meaning on weekends. It's fucking is your long distance girlfriend in college visits. We're talking like some walls are getting blown up about that for a second. It's a weekend skip. Bills is fucking Ernest. Yeah is it is it is it Friday the past five o'clock on the West Coast because right now skip is ball's in her all in one of Ernest various orifices falls or crevices a AH good for them. They have a relationship that seems unconventional Yup but it works for them just probably a lot of times when they're trying to faulk. Maybe if this is like around eight or nine on the weekend she's like what's the matter skip you can't get it up and he's just that Damn Mason crosby Gulf crossbar attorney gone in it started out going to the left and then turned to the right all right so when they started dating her mother Evelyn told are these people just all named seemed like from the nineteenth century. Ernestine Evelyn told her she had to make a decision about these games. Is he worth it. She said she decided yes. Fourteen years later she he wrote the book to try to help others deal with significant others who are addicted to sports or skip puts it a bit nuts about games. I lose it said skip. I'm a psycho GEICO. I vent I say words. That can't repeat that I'm ashamed I say Gosh Darn. Gosh Darn it good yeah. This Lebron guys not that bad but it's jinx's where skip is completely psycho in his words. Everything has to be just right because he evidently has cosmic powers. I believe in God but I also I believe in Jinx's said Bilas answer a question that did not include God in it I inner marshawn Zo good at this little pig it turns out last year during the AFC championship game when Tom Brady was intercepted in the end zone by the chiefs Reggie Ragland it was caused by Ernestine ruining skip zen did that because she stuck her head into ask me about something that was completely irrelevant skipped set of Ernestine asking about a letter he had received this is crazy that all like think about this Hank Brady's goats status is literally all because of pails yeah the guy behind the guy is because whenever Tom Brady is playing well it means that Ernestine is far away from the scene staying in her bedroom where she belongs doors and between myself and Ernestine Tom Brady's Brady's planner fuse can be shorter than mine and we had a battle all night long we kissed and made up. I'm going to add this and went to their separate bedrooms. we kissed and made up at the end of the night. I said I'm sorry sorry but it is just the jinx rule that you have to honor this. This is truly psychotic. Do you think skip in the middle of the night feels. A little randy sometimes makes walk tiptoes down the hallway and knocks on Ernest door before treadmill workout yeah they usually honor Friday nights is date night unless there's a particularly big a game. It's all about compromise Ernestine said I don't think it yes I mean it sounds like a lot of compromising coming from youth. People both agreed to compromise with skip. We both agreed to yes sleeping in different bedrooms she's learned to make it work. Which is the point of her book? She has the greatest thing she's he's. The greatest thing that's ever happened to me. Skip said I get emotional about it because she's so real so true so loyal. I don't know anyone who could put up with me. She has from day one. We're not we're not just good together. They were great together. Damn that's love. That's so sweet love. I love all this is like a story about earnest's book and she's quoted like three times and it's just also says quote so they know it sells they know the sizzle skip would do the interview for Ernest they compromised and said skip would would give all the quotes for this one I think in theory I'm thrown out there skip the second family Stephen a Smith during the week yeah that's why he makes her. Stay away from him. Instantly put a separate. I also liked that. We have a whole story a whole a whole book that was written to explain why skip bill is is a psychopath like we didn't need the book we knew while looked at his twitter although in skip bayless realises mind this does this book serves to humanize them a little bit this sure it's like anyone it does. Give me hope if skip bayless can find love anyone can find true. That's true of a man Dan who if you cut him ball falls pop out just balls everywhere. It's like it's like opening up a bag at a gym class. In third grade balls everywhere God bless him. Yeah Okay Watches skip sex tape though oh for sure it's beyond both are in very good shape. Yeah watching those like that's like one the first thing you would want for watching a sexy they should they should absolutely do one where he's on the couch watching a game and she pokes her head in. He's not right now. Tom Brady is playing. My cowboys are trailing in the fourth quarter and she liked does little strip tease. The sex tape doesn't actually involve any sex at all. It's just her trying in to initiate sex getting naked skip hails ignoring her and then her going back into a room with an eight by ten of Stephen All right. That's our show. We'll see everyone Wednesday huge huge guests bigger than gronk very big. Yeah love you guys in two Ah uh-huh the you all things things in common with any laws really Pardon my take

Rough delivery welled roughing everywhere rocking everywhere our HR was going on we back during the Corinthian special. Today's episode is titled Corentin Dreams. The main reas- isolated from the world. Because of this pandemic. There's absolutely no reason you shouldn't be creating right now. Aspirational COME FROM. A quote by Steve Martin. That says it is your belief that you are giving Hale back the whole back obviously corona virus. You know the world storm right now. Everybody locked in a house curve clearly. The Corona viruses on tour international tour. You know something. I aspire to be on at some point in my life so we can learn something from the corona virus and then you know just inserts a realization that at this point nothing is holding us back. We on lockdown where. They won't let us out. You know at some point. I feel like we might go outside. Go start shooting at our feet. You go to our I so I have a guest one of my favorite guests. That's come back to bless us with her boys. You know so. State your name who you are where you from. My name is Chelsea okay. The people know me as cello. I I am from Portsmouth. Virginia but a counterclaim. Houston so right because you thought the ages in every I don't know I don't uploaded in Saint Louis. Don't do it. The whole rally with stopped the whole Saint. Louis go cover me. And he'll be army guys and take all our so when you hear the word quarantine. What's the first thing that comes to your mind lockdown our right? When you hear the word pandemic not out was planned to mandate I but when you hear the word pandemic will come to your mind Like a really plague. Okay like the bubonic plague or the you know the ring around a rosy sign was based off of the The black plague. Thanks so sad. Yeah that's what I think about. 'cause that's the only thing allies about as far as Boob on a ring around the rosy posy ashes ashes we all fall down. I playing but she does so then. When you hear the word lockdown we'll come to your mind. I think I think of like beyond scared straight lockdown facility jail So we go outside. Corona. Go start yelling in getting real getting real. I'm setting Seattle all right so defined quarantine which says I stayed up period of is Aleisha in which people are animals that have arrived from elsewhere or have been exposed to infectious or contagious disease. Place and if I isolates as far away from other places buildings people remote so for those that you know offset is probably every episode some way before Mama teacher now teaching remote you know with my zoom now today in days prior my computer caption down on me so I will use it as used to retake my restarting it so in that way I can just Kinda you know. Go to the bathroom tile on the phone that kind of thing come back old. Shut out but does that so I went in are there. Some researchers always did and I found this website and it was an article titled Twelve. Holding you back from success now because of time. I'M NOT GONNA do twelve but I'm GonNa do like seven and we're GonNa Kinda give our impressions of that Muslim. Do you might as all right so the first one that says you can't compare yourself to others. So do you find yourself various other people absolutely I Louis Auditory and we are. I think that's a natural thing. I think that it's natural to compare yourself to other people wherever you are in life like there's always something that you compare yourself. Soliders finances looks hair. Whenever the case is you're always gonNA compare to well. We don't have this. I don't have this but you got XYZ. I think that's natural rubber The other which I think is a big one. Is You wait for permission others? It says you want those. You care about approve. Create a story that their approval means you're on the right path. You don't want to disappoint so you end up stuck in paralyzed by flip. It comment uninfluenced Reaction so I know from experience I will tell you know people close to me stuff sometimes parents and they're just get quiet and I'd just be like an Easter night. Maybe not do but at this point. I'm so confident what I'm doing. You really can't stop nothing so for me. I feel as though it's kind of like a bondage thing. Do you still feel as though you'll be in a position where like say your best friend. Who Don't approve of what you do on Eastern. Maybe I shouldn't do it. He just don't say you just don't see the beach I think I'm now at a point where I'm like. If you don't see an AC- I'm willing to be wrong instead of not doing it right. I'M GONNA at least do it regardless of whoever's approval but I'm not just going to be like oh they don't approve. Let me just throw the whole thing away. Now he fails it fails. But I'M NOT GONNA say I didn't do it over here. I like the so the next one is simple as you wait for the right time. I know people signed those leaving silos in two years. Three years it's been five years since they say they stood out next year. Come home this year. And as even use as everywhere. It's always you wait on the right time to leave or wait on the right time to start. Let me tell you something. You are on lockdown. There is no reason that business plan should be drawn out. There's no reason that book should have been started. There's no reason that you know video games. Should we start whatever? It is so many things that board game you WANNA create. Whatever is resistant decided not to eat and sleep through the next one. Says you expect instant results. I feel bad people because it's like they want something to happen right away and I at this point. I don't care how long it takes as long as it happened. So you expect something to happen instantly unless you go you know. Say especially like you feel your body now. Of course you can pay thousands of dollars to get the surgery from Dr Miami but you know Dr Colombia or Dr Columbia. And then you're going to be later on scissors and your booty a marshmallow stickers. A plastic aluminum foil wraps and it'd be wondering why you can barely walk home. The fifth woman says you listen to everyone budget yourself so everyone tell you what they think you should do. All you do this and I remember at one point in my life. That's kind of odd because our here like. Oh you should be a lawyer. You'd like to debate. Okay will do that and then got my senior college and I was like you know which I think was a blessing. 'cause I got work. Study my senior year like who does that and got work study worked at the law school. And I'm like I can't do this you know so. I applaud anybody in law school. Because I couldn't do this next one. I like. It says you create fake business so it says this is my favorite. By far. I spend my hours. I spent hours tweaking. My website read another blogs for research purposes. You know put the fingers around playing with new APPS. Days have gone by still stuck in my desk for our being very busy doing nothing. If you know you're doing the same thing steinbeck anxious Actions Lead to the not leading to tangible results. That you know you need to spend your time doing something. So that just kind of falls in with distraction may be a cello. Bow To her assignment. A right so she said let me see what time if flight still open overflights. That are running the poorest nations. Oh well okay not open. Well let me see if Women next favorite show come back home or Oh let me see you doing you create fake stuff to just you know. Stop you from doing what you need to do. And I do I do it all the time. Do not on purpose it. Just kind of have a chain reaction cycle. Okay let me do this turns into this this and this and this you did so much nothing that three hours. Don't win by. He would go right whole bunch enough hours in the last one. I liked says you assume talent and now persistence the key to success so you can be talented all day long as great. You can be talented all day long. Oh I got this talent. You know I'm the best word never seen at ABC. But you have to. You know working. So I was listening to Bank was more of a speech. Divi Frank and he the episode of thing was titled Mama Mentality so he started talking about Cobo. A is the copy. Got The idea for Mama Mentality. Ink BLACK MAMBA FROM KILL BILL Dermot. That was her her coning. And so AH BLACK MAMAS WHITE. This is like sneak up on your strike you. He said that was the his what he wanted to be his persona on the court so in eventually that's what it became so but he worked at it. He was already naturally talented He spent hours in the gym. He's been I was practicing all these different things so it just goes to show. You can be talented. But if you're not practicing that you WANNA get so far you don't get there peaking in S. eight instead of breaking off their box of me limitless. So do you find yourself whereas like you not work this off? You know. You shouldn't yeah. I think that's where I'm at now like I haven't saying to myself like oh I'm going to restart my blog and then I found myself. I'm like okay. Well I know that I can right like I know that I can write. I'm a writer and then I'm like well I'm a I'm a figure out when I'm right about one day like or think about it me see what I want to write about. Not just like I'm like okay. I know I can do it but I'm not taking the time every day to think of injuries and I'm not taking the time every day to think of like what it is i WanNa talk about. 'em DISLIKE OH I mean if I want to pick it up I can still pick it up because I know how to do it. And it's like okay. Well you have to put some kind of work behind it like even if I blog about why the sun is is is bright as I have some kind of content. I'm putting something out versus not doing anything at all so with that. I agree with the initials. Kinda like an is like you. Don't want to as a writer. I know that you don't want to sound reminded me. Basically 'cause she can easily talk about you know the krona buyers in his Li- okay. What are you going to say it from because everybody everybody talked about the same thing Yes why can't do quarantine dreams because these are the dream should be had? Why are you on right so now? I WanNa talk about other things so I wanNA talk about Edging on Kinda I guess you could say at times. So it's a show is anime. Call attack on Titan Right. These people were locked in town. Right where we where church stinking with me. Stay with me all right. So it's so it's my mic right now on attack on site and if people are basically quarantine in their city. They can't leave. It's like big old Barriers around the city but they are so used to living a life. They never thought anything of it. That's all they know. Is that so one day how to show starts off. If these big old creatures they giant they titans they come through as thought wrecking havoc on the city and a break the barriers out and as the show goes along these people learn about the outside world and learn about differences and understanding that they don't have to be just bound in a seat and granted they going around killing the titans. They still are traveling doing other things because they get out of eight companies that sound like a good show yes show then the other one. I want to talk about this other game that I play and it was his Ninja Games here and with the other one is a show and so he got stuck under some rocks. He got stuck on some rocks. He was about to die. He was about to die. He had to have He added make a decision so it was either used his soul because it's free hand to cut off his arm so he could get out or so. What do you think he did? He cut off his own share. He cut off his own where he was like a Cyborg magazine of getting replaced later but he had faced the believe that he was going to get something repeating no. He was getting a replacement but he getting one. Okay so see what I'm saying. He was holding him back from living. Your own stay with me now. Multiple said Gonna. Just die although less extreme so easy way out exactly but it's easy way out but although there's an extreme point whatever was holding you back that might be something you'd think is normal from going where you need to go. Who is holding you back? I think to myself. Oh it's not I think I know I know it's me I know it's being and then at least two other when I got another one as Milan within east but at least it is this the Kinda will be going full circle and Kinda go back to what we saw earlier. When we say you know we worry about the opinions and other people in and other people will stop us from doing things that we call to do. So if we talk about Ash Ketchum we know. We're so he from POKEMON. Yeah ask him saying he was going to poke him on his name was. He said he was going to poke in my league. Nineteen night said he lost every two but in twenty nineteen. He warned. That's twenty two years. There goes the so. You've gotta destined to do something. Don't matter how long it takes go half inch fifty seven so again. I'll say I'll say this. You cannot allow various to keep you from doing what you supposed to do a lot of times. We need different scenarios. We see whether it'd be very of that. The first one was the barrier of you know their own limitations and then asks it was what people were saying but either way those are still limitations and berries that we can allow keep us bound up and now with this. Korte going on. You have no choice but to work on what you need to do every every so now I don't know if you had a real revelation dated maybe as you like you said Did you realize that before? The day was your Now it was before today. I think like even stuff as like school like school in work and I think I just. I don't know I just went other people. I don't believe that I had the potential that other people see. I don't always see it so it's like when I hear stuff and it's like I think I was at a couple of weeks ago two weeks ago. The People's champ sample of places to go there and One of my friends and I'm still waiting on that book and I was like Shit. I'm still waiting to see what people seeing us where we don't always ourselves and that's good to people like that around because people can see the greatest thing you've made two seven that's Kinda why sometimes people may like you know. Bash your criticize you. 'cause they might see the green goodness in. Usc What you can't do and they hope you'll never get to because typically your enemies know that you can do. Is You have a hard time. Believe you can do so. They're trying to keep you. You know it's definitely something. I've been kind of struggling with probably since the semester started and see see. That's another thing with you because you might say own way with school. Will you wait on the right time when when I finished school? Then I'm GONNA start note next door today with the do which was the day they do your fascinating by. You keep questioning maybe next. Maybe not do this but he still do right now or I got another thing. This is how to identify conquer. What is holding you back from Corporate Dot Com? It says you are the only one who has the power to either move forward or hold yourself back. Let excuses all your unconscious mind prevents you from. Recently your goals follow these tips. Identify move past obstacles that are keeping you from the life that you want so the First Section we talked about what happens when we forced into quarantine the forced into being held back in another somehow. Identify things that can help you to get past it. So the first one that says identified obstacles. Sometimes it's easy to spot a pattern of negative emotions or excuses limited behaviors because it permits your conversation thoughts so anytime you identify some negative it kind of goes until your conversations that goes to what you thinking about and she might be saying. Well I can do this book. Maybe maybe I need shop in my writing up. And it's like you're gonNA keep needed. Sharpen up shopping it up but it's it's time is now you know even with Joe Book and we're podcast. The I went as far as book wise. It might not be terrible but when you create creating them books you look back at the ceremony. Even though it may not be terrible competitive you know what you grow to so it said it. This can be particularly difficult when there's evidence that proves that your limitations your argument for so again if the limitation has proven like okay. I can't do this then is when you probably had to get into the state where Eli got. Approved myself in this work the limiting beliefs. So it says it's going to be resistance but is there tried journal in the area. Live where you're expecting a where you're experiencing some frustration where you haven't been able to achieve something you desire. Say I think that's a very very important one like I was listening to this. Podcast call like soul something. I can't remember the name of it. But they were talking about like Pivoting through your emotions so she was like a try for the next thirty days to get a journal and to whenever you have a negative feeling about yourself like write it down and figure out like why you're feeling that way. What is it that made you feel that way How you can kinda change the thing and I think changing the narrative is really important too so when you write it down you're able to see like what exactly is bothering you and you can change the narrative of how you're looking at it or either change. Change it altogether. 'cause sometimes I know with me like I've had people have. Oh you're selfish. Oh you devil all you did that and it's like one of those true but either way I feel as though I'm not going to this one of my life. I'm not going to sit up explaining myself to know it's like this. No it's like that when you probably don't care listen to a no way so you already got a mind. Said it is what it is now with a kind of goes to. The thoroughness says assigning a negative meaning. It says like most of you probably have a negative voice to try to tell you what you can do says when you listen to the voice negatively may tell yourself that because this happened or that happened or I'll never have. That is as look at what you've made. Assumptions created story around something that may not be true in. Denison challenge yourself to assign a new empowering meaning to the experience of the situation so with me outside like if something bad happens. Avi like maybe that happened so that I'll never do that again or maybe it was just a learning. You know something like that so that I'm just not bound by it because you'd be bound by you'll be fearful risk the of some happiness six. That's dental trauma to yeah. That's a whole nother news. Somebody's going to be on his podcast trouble. This didn't do shit about to cry for the fourth. One says the way see syndrome. Have you ever been excited to jump on an opportunity because it fell right into may logical sense but there was something screaming that you just hold off and think about it longer so that's called the wait and see approach and it's based on fear in his filter through a person's negative emotions limiting beliefs? When you take the wait and see approach will eventually stop seeing opportunities. That are right at funny. So that's pretty self explanatory a lot of waiting. I told you that weight number. Just wading we all see you know you're going to be ten years past. You know like spongebob. Twelve hours later is going to be like that. Voice is low key mute on twelve hours twelve hours. The next thing you know you just put it off and and you know what I get a great idea to they kind of my head or an example you've ever seen the movie acrimony So the dude in the movie he killed fighting for his dream and he never put it off and he kept on trying to make it work. Years passed by never made it never worked and kind of fall into the Ashton because he kept trying kept China ventilating the work he ended up being billion. So it's Kinda like they if he would awaiting it seized in waited saw. I don't know if there's right but you know it will never will never went through. And then the last one which is the test. The water tactic is hanging out in Graz creates confusion. Conflict is a stink about. You wouldn't come up against obstacle issue or close to achieving your go. We'll put you in. This position is low. We'll get you out of this situation so that kind of goes away. She said earlier when she was like. I rather try and be wrong. They not try nothing at all so test the water in a way to see syndrome. The I'd rather be a test. The water person than way to see 'cause wait forever. You won't be a skeleton that you a skeleton Day that's what you're GONNA be like you're right and I think I'm at a point where I'm like Life Gedeon any moment. Something could happen and I'm like I don't WanNa be in a hospital bed thinking it's my end and I got all the stuff I should've they don't want it to do and I do it because I laid XYZ stopped me from doing elongate. Your this corona is real. All right people are dying and even if they not. Donnegan stuck in the hospital for two weeks at least two weeks. Use Them two weeks to work on what you need to be working so. I don't know who needs to hear that but yeah tiffany my college students as far as you know. This is the time appointing your life.

A. and I'm sure that my partner will want me to go to La two we discussed to have long distance Loath until Banks permit change. But I'm definitely going to La. And I'm not going to be with anybody that's not going to allow the same thing. Okay so you have designed to work certain alphabet. Your Diet is holding back what you do come. Let my dad do you doing? Are you WANNA get some work under a Corinthian but you keep getting distracted by your TV. What you doing turn my TV off. That's not what I gotta do. Our right you're passionate is calling an butcher required by contract to keep working from your main job remotely so your job is getting away which you doing and will probably allow my job to help vet or both. Whenever I'm done working remotely Aca Ges do my pageant. I can hear put his economy. I might lose out on sleep. That's fine but I can't lose. I'm getting vintage. Donald Trump. Said you can't you can't get it. We'll fuck it. Having been commission the money is GONNA use mix it on top of that which a major contract is due to burn minimum. Exactly the bear. I'm talking about the fair for so maybe give me compliments. Oh you doing this. She's taking our last. You'll tinky song but you need a nap. Which you know take them what. The oldest can make a peanut butter and Jelly Sandwich. Until I like my sleep is important. Okay I'll care that's why keys because I know all right so we ended up with the question of challenge. What is one thing that has held you back and light and then now I want you to tell me what it was explain? How held you back because it was you know and I want you to be descriptive with okay. Now let me explain something to you because you're actually the first person shooters on starting this month because this is not April. I'm starting to give away monthly You can tune into the my videos on my page to see if more details. I'LL BE GIVEN OUT GIFT CARDS RIGHT THIS FIRST MONTH. April. I'm only doing three of them. It'd be to ten dollars. Twenty five dollars one month's Going FORWARD IT'LL BE FIVE GIFT cards three ten dollars to twenty five dollars. A month is basically how was going. Work is to get a qualified for the gift card. You have to answer the question of challenges that I do and you have to post them in your story and tag me and the products for the station's page all right. You have to do it the whole month as long as I drove episodes but among once you do that. I'M GONNA put the name of people in a drawing like in the thing they do a live on my story. So you're not doing triggering and I'm GonNa pick the name in assign you a car so it'd be granted what card you get in. It'd be random you know who I pick but the only way you get drawn is not just by answering the questions you have to. I have to feel as though you put some effort into so you know you post my name in the project. What vegetation's name? I opened a do it on live on my story. Boom you get a car knocking military if you live in Houston so you got any closer more I think that I just want to put some emphasis. I don't know how long this Corentin is. GonNa an or last but really take advantage of what you be an offer like this house crazy. Some people I know like my mom is like I usually say in house now for saying how is it so much opportunity for you to read to learn something new to listen to a podcast into a audiobook?

Guillotine

"The most serial killers don't make any effort to involve media or best Gators. They're very secretive. They don't want attention. They almost want their crimes to go unnoticed, but the idea of committing a crime, and then calling up the police and bragging about it. That's a whole 'nother level of terror. A man who wore a mediaeval style executioner's hood who has baffled the police and baffled the media. He seems to crave publicity. He sent letters and Ramsden newspapers. And the beliefs subject stated, I want to report a murder. No, a double murder. I did it. Here. We are fifty years to the first sodium killing in today's world of forensics old cases are being solved who doesn't wanna know. How it turns out? From the creators of Atlanta monster come season two. This is monster vizo yet killer. Listen as subscribe at apple podcasts or on the iheartradio app. Hey, welcome to invention. I'm Robert lamp, and I'm Jim McCormick. And you might know Robert knife. From our other shows stuff to blow your mind or other show in the house Steph works network, but today, you apparently have somehow wandered into our brand new curiosity store of inventions, where we explore human ingenuity for good for ill, all of the stuff that comes out of our imaginations and becomes the technology. We use every day or maybe just read about in history books. Yes. The hallowed halls of technological systematic and cultural invention, the very human machines customs and systems that altered the course of history. And today we're talking about one of the most useful inventions of all time. It's got to be an Robert before. I say do you say like a French guys name or like what a fish breathes with? I go with guillotine because it sounds a little more like an open face sandwich that way. And also, it has the key has more. Sound to it? Yeah. I like how it sounds kind of like the the Minna tar the guillotine. Yeah. But but apparently guillotine in English is also somewhat acceptable. Pronunciation, I I don't think there's a firm ruling one way or another from the lords of English pronunciation now one thing is for certain as we venture into this world of the attain a beheadings themselves are just a time honored way for one human being to kill another. It's a wound that still can't be repaired. And it is without question. Certain death. Now one thing I was thinking about deliberate. This is what would you even say is the quote cause of death in a beheading? So well blood loss loss of oxygen to the brain. Basically it just cuts off it cuts off your all your plumbing systems from all of your your your your thinking systems. Yeah, it makes it makes you think about how often when you hear phrases like clinically dead that can refer to something about circulation like the cessation of heartbeat. But yeah. So when you separate the head from. The body. I guess you've got to be really rigorous about what you mean by dead though. I guess it also happens pretty quickly. So you don't have to worry about it too much. But yeah, all the blood comes out of the head immediate loss of blood pressure. Which means the brain can't get oxygen, which means the brain can't work. Yeah. And it's something that's just cemented inner mythology as well. Right. I mean, you want to kill a vampire you want to kill Medusa. You want to kill a Highlander. What do you do you cut their head off? There is something just super naturally potent about this form of death. Well, I think that's absolutely true. And you see that in a lot of archaeological finds of beheadings from human history. Like, here's a kind of strange fact, a lot of times when you find beheaded humans from ages past there appears to be evidence that the people were beheaded posthumously, why did that happen? There are a lot of ways you could explain it. I mean that you would take a dead person and cut off their head. Maybe there's some sort of ritual function going on here might be human sacrifice. Maybe there's some kind of symbolic form of judge. Justice being done if it's the corpse of a criminal or an enemy or something. But a lotta times it appears like it might be a form of APO tro Paic magic kind of magic you would use to ward off evil or bad spirits in the same way that you might find a skeleton from hundreds of years ago with an iron rod driven through its heart or with a brick in its mouth and say the tombs underneath Venice. Yeah, there's like a dismantling of the of the individual that it seems evident in these acts. You know, and we we see acts of ritual decapitation dating back thousands of years. For instance, there's evidence in Brazil that dates back to at least nine thousand BC. And it's a in it. We find a human skull draped in amputated hands palm side down covering the face as if as if in grief, that's from place called Laba DOE santio in in South America in Brazil, and a lot of bones have been discovered there. And it's not always easy to determine how to read the intention behind. What you see? In these people. But the yeah, there were all kinds of forms of of apparent posthumous mutilation going on in the way these bones arranged, for example, sometimes you'll find skulls they're full of finger bones inside the skulls what was going on. What made the people wanna do that? It seems like it may well a foreign to some kind of magical intention, but what was it? Indeed, we can only guess no another kind of significance that beheading his often had in the ancient world was that it was one of the many forms of execution practice, of course, in ancient Greece and Rome, and in fact, our terms decapitation and capital punishment. Both come from the Latin from capit- meaning head so capital punishment is punishment of the head or that. You you pay you pay for a crime with your head by separating it from the other stuff, and there's some evidence that the ancient Greeks and Romans viewed beheading as not a particularly harsh punishment. But more is particularly. Noble and honorable form of execution. And you can see strains of this thinking carried into much more recent times like when beheading was deployed as an execution method throughout the history of England, not always, but it was most often reserved for the restock rec-, while common criminals might more often be killed in. What was considered a less dignified way like hanging? Yeah. I mean, obviously beheadings in general have probably been occurring as long as we've had weapons fine enough to inflict, the blow, you know. You know in its long as we had something that could knock a head off. And then when you start looking at these the the use of the sword or an axe and execution a lot of it comes down to the craftsmanship of that weapon. But also the skill of the individual using it. Yeah. That that's a real kicker, isn't it? I mean when you contract somebody to do a job for you a lotta time if you don't have a previous relationship with them, you know, you don't know what kind of work they're going to do you wanna find those people you can trust? But it's hard to find a trustworthy executioner that you know, is going to cut your head off. Right, right. Like, you really got to put yourself in the in the shoes of the condemned here. Right. You know, obviously, you don't want to be stoned to death. You know, we don't want to be thrown into that burlap sack with two wild animals and thrown into the river. You would probably prefer a nice clean beheading. But nobody wants a less than perfect beheading. If the local warlord is doing it. You know, that's one thing. Unless how ever you're worried about the warlord infl-. Flitting and intentionally less than perfect stroke. You know out of personal malice if it's a professional executioner this doing the honours. Well, that's either really good or really bad depending on how you look at it. Like, the idea of a train specialist doing the the D that sounds good. But on the other hand death via the sort of person who either seeks this line of work out or is not suited for any other form of labor. That's a little frightening. I would say plus do you really want to be toward the bottom of an executioner's list for the day after they're tired from swinging that big old acts like it's your turn on Friday afternoon. Yeah. Like, you kind of I want to be up there. I would want to be up there. I let them get that that I blow in on me. I must admit I don't think I'd ever much considered the horrors of a week strike from the executioner until game of thrones came around. Oh, yeah. And then the I suddenly began to think like, oh, yes. This could go very wrong, but George Martin did not make up this concept. Obvious. Asli of of being weak, it swinging the executioner's sword or the acts history is replete with stories of botched beheadings, and they are horrific and unfortunately, sometimes kind of funny I wanna tell you a couple. This one's not so funny and this concerns Mary the Queen of Scots so during the reign of Protestant Queen Elizabeth I of England in the sixteenth century. There is obviously a lot of anxiety about succession because Elizabeth had been born to king Henry the than his second wife in Berlin after Henry's first marriage to Catherine Avera gone had been annulled, and obviously lets people at the time especially some Catholics had opinions about that. Right and Elizabeth's cousin. Mary Stuart was born to James v of Scotland who was descended from a legitimate Royal line. And so many Catholic supporters thought will maybe Mary actually has a more legitimate claim to the throne Elizabeth does. And so Mary was eventually implicated in an assassination plot. Against Elizabeth in fifteen eighty six at least she was allegedly involved in and she was sentenced to execution in fifteen eighty seven. So you've got Mary Stuart Mary Queen of Scots going to her execution, and the story goes that she's blindfolded and she gets helped the block and the executioner wearing all black raises up his axe to kill her. But instead of cutting through her neck he misses and he hits her on the head. And then some report that she murmurs sweet Jesus in shock before the executioner raises. His axe a second time, and then strikes again and still fails to cut her head off completely. And finally he quote, just sawed through what remained of her neck. Oh, that's that's that's rough for Mary. Yeah. And this, you know, this is presumed main event beheading here. So this is before a Royal audience. Right. So this would have to be either an act of just just just an utterly in net executioner or one that is intentionally doing a bad job at of mouth like. Seems to be very little room in between. It's hard to understand what happened here because we you know, we only have accounts from the time, which may not even be fully reliable. We're relying what people told us they saw their right? And there could be some objective in crafting version of the tale that sounds more inept than it actually was. But it actually gets worse. Because apparently, so it's described sometimes that the executioner appeared horrified. What was going on? But the heads men after he got her head off. He took hold of the severed head and he held it up in front of the crowd. So we could hold up the severed head and say God, save Queen Elizabeth, but he grasped Mary's head by the hair, and it turned out the hair was a wig. So the head fell down and rolled away leaving him holding only a hacked up bloody wig while proclaiming his true Queen and then another part of the story. Maybe maybe not to be believed is that after Mary's head rolled away. Her lips kept moving as if she was talking or praying. We've okay. Some of that sounds like it might have been imbalanced. But it also sounds like this guy was a real hack, no pun intended. Well, I got an even. Worse hack for you. Because there was a seventeenth century English. Executioner named Jack catch catch spelled like catch up catch. Yeah. Or like wha what's the the kid in the pokey man's? I have no idea. Are very knowledgeable producer Paul just tells me it is ash Ketchum. Okay. I guess he's got to catch him. All right. So Jack catch him, right? The rider. That's what comes to my mind. I don't well. Any this is Jack ketch. Okay. K E T H so jet catch birthdate unknown died in sixteen eighty six who was notorious for being a complete screw up at his job and bungling executions a couple of examples in sixteen eighty three catch perform the beheading of William Lord, Russell who was convicted for treason in his role of an his role in the rye house plot which was against king. Charles the second of England and catches beheading of Russell was reportedly just this clumsy horror with catch waxing Russell again and again with the acts but repeatedly failing to get his head off. And apparently after this catch defended himself by complaining that Russell wouldn't hold still. And then you got the second one later James Duke of Monmouth he went to. The block for the Monmouth rebellion of sixteen eighty five and he tried to pay catch not to screw up his execution. He's recorded as saying, quote here are six Guineas for you. Pray do your business. Well, do not serve me as you did my Lord Russell. I have heard you struck him three or four times then Monmouth gave three more Guineas to his servant who is standing nearby and told a servant to pay catch only if catch did the beheading correctly. And then catch said, I hope I shall then. Monmouth asked to feel the axe played and he did. And he complained that oh, this is too. Dull and catch said, no, it's sharp enough. It'll be heavy enough. So Monmouth got down in place to accept his fate. And catch brought the axe down on Monmouth. And at this point it is reported that after he got hit Monmouth lifted his head up and turned around and glared at catch angrily. Then he got back down. So catch could hit him again. And catch hit him. Several more times failing each time to behead him. Then catch got frustrated and tried to walk away and quit in the middle of the execution while Monmouth was still alive, but the crowd yelled at him and told him to go back and finish it. So finally, he went back after some more blows and the use of knife. He finally managed to get the dukes head off. Well, that's awful. This guy is a true hack wonder if that's where the word hat comes perhaps. Yeah. So you had people whose job it was to administer would. I guess was supposed to be the more humane form of execution at the time. I mean, this is different than being, you know, tortured and hanged drawn and quartered. And all that. But he this obviously, not going the way it's supposed to and if we're going inspired by the Greek and Roman model, something is obviously wrong here. Like, not only is it unnecessarily painful. Does not really seem like an honorable death. The seems humiliate. Yeah. This. There's nothing noble about this. You know, this is not a finally craft instrument wielded by a by by an expert practitioner. This is just clumsy exercise in horror. But what if mechanical controls could be set in place the same level of perfection, regardless of whoever happens to be wearing the hood how tired they are what sort of weapon they're using. Or what sort of six stuff they're into a machine that cannot get tired? It can't hesitate or engage in unfair punishment. It's not going to judge you based on your your Royal or commoner status. A good blade some gravity in a simple frame with the neck lock. Will that would be the guillotine or we're gonna take a quick break? And when we come back, we will discuss some precursors to the guillotine and the guillotine itself. It's finally complete all ten episodes of the addictive I opening mind-bending podcast series the end of the world with Josh Clark. They're all ready for you to been. So y'all know Josh Clark. He's co host of stuff, you should know. And for the end of the world, he dives deeply into existential risks ways, we humans might accidentally wipe ourselves out with the same technology. We're developing now to make a bright future for ourselves. How a haphazard physics experiment could end the universe or why artificial intelligence could take control of our world or how an artificially mutated virus could escape a lab and create a global pandemic. Now, this is heavy stuff. But the end of the world delivers the fascinating science behind existentialist through an immersive experience with the beautiful original score in cinematic sound design that takes you from say a spacecraft trying to navigate interstellar space is even side your own body to the far future where humans evolved into a post biological species who live in digital form if you're a curious person who gets jazzed by fascinating science.

So the guillotine of late eighteenth century, France, which I'm sure you've heard about before that was involved in the French revolution. The reign of terror the first French Republic that guillotine was not the first human head removal machine. Not by a long shot. And we're not saying it was you know, that it was predated by people swinging an axe restored with their hands. Of course, it was. But there were organized machines for doing this job more efficiently. And in a more consistent way before the guillotine was instituted in France. Right. And they worked along the same principles. They maybe they weren't quite as refined. But essentially the idea was there though, we should say that it was only in the aftermath of the the French revolution. That people began referring to decapitation machines as guillotine. That's where the name comes from. Yes. They had equally less refined names. They had more grisly names. At one finds. We'll meet a couple in a moment. So as for who invented the I Jin. Decapitation machine. This is totally unknown lost to history. And in fact, we don't even know for sure how many societies used a device like this there are there are a lot of tales. But many of these tales might not even be true. We don't know for. Sure. Right. And then how often is the individual celebrated for creating such a thing as we'll discover the naming of the guillotine doesn't really relate to the individual or individuals that created it, right? I mean, a lot of people who create execution devices don't want to be associated with right? And when you find the people who do want to be associated with them or don't mind, you got to kind of wonder about those. So there are a couple of known mechanical beheading devices from England that predated the French guillotine and one is known as the Halifax Gibb it. So how how a fax is a town in West Yorkshire in England, and it had this infamous beheading machine known as the Halifax jib, which was allegedly used mostly to punish petty theft. So people would steal some small. All some of money or something worth not very much, some cloth or something and into the Halifax jibbidy. They would go. It was described in eighteen thirty seven history by an author named William White in the following way. Quote. The executions always took place on the great market day in order to strike the more terror into the neighborhood when the criminal was brought to the jib it which stood a little way out of the town. Where part of the stone platform may still be seen on Gibb hill. The execution was performed by means of an engine which was raised upon a platform four feet high and thirteen feet square faced on every side with stone and ascended by a flight of steps in the middle of this platform was placed to upright pieces of timber fifteen feet high joined at the top by transverse beam within these was a square block of wood four feet and a half long which moved up and down by means of grooves made for that purpose to the lower part of the sliding block. Was fastened an iron axe of the weight of seven pounds twelve ounces. The acts thus fixed was drawn up to the top by a cord and pulley at the end of the cord was a pin which being fixed to the block kept it suspended till the moment of execution when the culprit having placed his head on the block the pin was withdrawn and his head was instantly severed from his body if the offender was condemned for stealing an ox, a sheep or a horse the end of the rope was fastened to the beast, which being driven pulled out the pin, and thus became the executioner. In other cases, the Bela for is servant cut. The rope and allowed the axe to descend so little unnecessary complexity involving farm animals, but otherwise the basic principles of the teen is we've come to know it. Yeah, it's more or less there. There might be some design refinements we come on later. But this is the idea it's it's a reliable consistent machine. That's not going to mess up. Right. Of course. It doesn't sound like it was necessarily accustomed blade or maybe it was, but it's very much based on the design of an axe played. Yeah. And when you see Australians at looks like just a large axe head on the bottom of a huge wooden block. And so this beheading machine of Halifax was famous enough that the English poet John Taylor referenced it alongside the notoriously tough police of Kingston upon hull in a poem. The thought was pretty good. He writes, there is a proverb and a prayer with all that we may not to three strange places full from hull from Halifax from hell. Tis thus. From all these three good Lord deliver us at Halifax the law, so sharp doth deal that who so more than one three Pence doth steal. They have a Lynn that wondrous quick. And well since thieves all headless unto heaven or hill from hell each man says Lord deliver me because from hell can no redemption be men may escape from hull. And halifax. But sure in hell there is a heavier tax sounds pretty grim. Well, like how it sort of captures two themes there one is that how the Halifax gibbered is deadly something to be feared. But it also contrast it with the supposed tortures of hell, I guess again emphasizing that well, it's not as torturous as many of the other methods that are being used as almost describing it like it's a like it's a plane ticket to to greater rewards or suffering depending on how one supernatural revenge fantasy is playing out here. But on the other hand, I like that it is to a certain extent farm animals. You know, no standing it is to a certain extent, saving the horrors of an afterlife for those imagined after lives and not trying to embody them too much in the act of execution itself. Yeah. Now, whether that's actually a good thing or not we can discuss later, but it does seem to be there's at least a there's at least a superficial kind of humaneness to right? Even though it seems to be being lumped on people who who committing extremely acronyms and not in no matter what you think really probably a deserving of death. But there's some strange stories about how people reacted to what happened with at the Halifax Gibb the story and Thomas right tells a legend, quote of a country woman who is riding by the Gibb it on her hampers to the market just at the execution of a criminal. When the axe chopped his neck through with such force that the head jumped into one of her hampers or as others say seized her apron with. The teeth and they're stuck for some time. I I don't believe that's true or at least the teeth. I don't believe again. We're coming back to the sort of inherent comedy. I mean, true gallows humor that comes with the heading executions. But there's an interesting observation from the Halifax historian John Crabtree who has sort of attitude about what stories like this mean. He writes, quote, it is useless employing words about this fair, but the circumstance may serve to show with what apathy the country people regarded this mode of punishment. Their minds were evidently hardened by such exhibitions. And the fact develops the inadequacy of such awful administrations of Justice to produce that proper moral and salutory effect, which might have been intimidated such scenes off repeated appear to harden rather than soften to stupefy rather than awaken the sensibilities of man's nature. And I think we should come back to that thought later. On. Indeed. All right. So what else do we have in terms of proto guillotine machines? Well, a quicker story is just a copy essentially of the Halifax Jimmy known as the Scottish maidens of James Douglas fourth Earl of Morton who was the ruler of Scotland from fifteen seventy to fifteen seventy eight he was alleged at some point to have introduced the decapitation machine to his country of Scott's inspired by the health X Gibb it allegedly he at some point traveled through Halifax. And he was so inspired by the Jimmy that he thought I should share the same technology with my countrymen. So a similar machine was built out of oak, and it can be transported around the country to perform beheadings wherever but it was often accepting the condemned at Edinburgh, and according to the national museums of Scotland crimes that could get you sent to the Scottish, maiden included murder, incest, stealing treason, adultery, forgery and robbery. But there's an ironic twist. So James Douglas that URL for thorough. Oh of Morton was a supporter of James the sixth and Morton opposed the Catholic faction of Mary Queen of Scots who we discussed earlier, Mary Stuart. And he was visually implicated in a plot to murder Mary's. Second husband Lord Darnley and was put to death in June fifteen eighty one decapitated by the Scottish maiden that he brought to Scotland there's your poetic Justice and legends of that kind will appear again. And again in this episode, actually, yes. And even beyond this episode because this isn't that a common theme the the man destroyed by his own invention by his own machine. It happens enough in the movies that you should think it happens. More often in reality, though, in the movies is especially common when that invention is some kind of hybrid animal, I created a shark ape. And you know, it swings from the trees taking bites out of people who who could have known my shark would turn on me. And he ended always happens. All right. So as we've been discussing. There were similar devices already used in Europe and had been for centuries before the team came around. But the individual who is often credited as the inventor of the eighteen is French surgeon and physiologists Antoine Louis who lives seventeen twenty three SU seventeen ninety two. Yeah, he is often credited as the inventor though, based on what I was reading it appears to me was maybe designed by some sort of committee of which Louis was the leader. Right. And this is actually all the more fitting when we really get to the heart of the KEA teen here because it is this this thing that is it is this utilization of technology in this. There's there's an air of civility to it. This this taking something that is kind of just rather barbaric and making it a little less, so well, it's bureaucratic violence. Yes. Exactly. It very much embodies the idea of retributive violence by the state taken out of the emotional hands of the single executioner and placed into the hands. Ends of a disembodied machine. That is created by a committee through drafts. Yes. You know? We have another episode that we're recording this week on vending machines. And it's amazing. The similarities involved here this this these symptoms. These struggles over. What exactly is happening when a machine does the bidding of a human give a machine is vending say blasphemous, literature has discussing this other episode then who's at fault for said literature sale. And and there's a sense of that here too. It's like the bureaucracy has condemned you to death the machine is actually doing the execution. We're just merely pushing the button pulling the string it cetera to carry out this judgment, right? But we do at least have antwon Louis to associate with the creation of the machine. Even if it wasn't just him alone because of his association with it. It was often early on. It was called names not the guillotine yet, but names like Louisette or the Lewis zone, which doesn't have as much of a ring to it. Oh, I kinda like it. I I could see executions by the Louisette. Yeah. I guess it would have grown on us. But it it any rate later. It definitely came to be named after Joseph Ignace Aghia tan who lived seventeen thirty. Eight through eighteen fourteen. He was a physician he was a national assembly member any played a major role in passing legislation that may death by machine the law. The loose idea. Here is that it would kind of legislation would provide the best possible version of beheading to all classes of society. And we do have to point out that despite some urban legends out there. Guillotine himself was not killed by his own machine. And he wasn't actually a huge fan execution either. It's not like he was a huge execution enthusiasts. We'll know exactly. The opposite Gaston oppose the death penalty. He wanted the abolition of the death penalty. But he didn't think that he could accomplish that directly. Right. This seemed the the best reasonable next step. Right. It's like if I can't we can't Aratu Kate it we're going to have it. We might as well make it clean and fair to all involved. According to popular legend photon was born when his. Pregnant mother was out walking one day, and she overheard the screams of a condemned criminal being broken on the wheel and breaking on the wheel was, you know, a classic death by torture type method where I person- would be stretched out on a wheel in kind of starfish pose and they'd have their limbs broken with an iron rod or with a club just insane brutality. So he was very much opposed to that sort of thing. Not only just the the barbaric nature of the execution. But the public nature of the idea that that women and children just innocent bystanders might just walk through town and witness such such horror. So he was thinking maybe if less children end up watching this the better. Yes. And make it yet. It's more systematic. It's more. You know, the act itself is is less flashy. And then we're just going to make it less for performance. So Ghia Tom was not out there lobbying to get this machine named after his family. You know, it just it ended up stick. Now, a little fact here that sounds like something right out of an Allen more comic book, but along with Benjamin Franklin guillotine investigated, the work of friends Messmer of mesmerized them. You know, the the the form of hypnotism that we had back in the day. And they investigated him on behalf of king Louis. The sixteenth league of extraordinarily gentlemen. Exactly. So another way of thinking you you alluded to this a minute ago. Robert like, the idea that it would be the best method for all the classes. So another way of thinking about the motivation for the institution of the teen at this time in history was that it supposedly extended the democratic and egalitarian principles of the French revolution to common criminals, essentially extending them, the courtesy of the honorable beheading. That was more often reserved for nobles and aristocrats instead of more shameful and common and painful deaths like hanging burning or breaking on the wheel, which you were more likely to get if you were just some lower class petty criminal right now as for the idea Gaston had thinking that this would shield children from the gruesome practice of execution. Unfortunately, this did not work out. I was reading a section from a book called children's toys of bygone days. A history of playthings of all peoples from prehistoric times. To the nineteenth century by Karl Gruber published in nineteen twenty eight and the authorites, quote, the worst monstrosity of the kind was the outcome of the French revolution. Which indeed was over rich in aberrations of taste the toyshops put on the market little guillotine 's with which little patriots could be head figures of aristocrats. They're still survived some specimens of this pretty in diverting machine. One of which bears the date seventeen ninety four and he's got an illustration these were not models, but pure toys and in proof of this. We have the kings evidence from one whom we should never suspect of wishing to give so bloodthirsty toy to his little son. And here, the author is speaking of the romantic, poet, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, so good Gruber tells the story and that in December seventeen ninety three Gert wrote a letter to his mother and Frankfurt asking if she would buy a toy guillotine for his little son. Son, and she replied, dear son, anything I can do to please you as gladly done and gives me joy, but to buy such an infamous implement of murder that I will not do at any price. If I had thority the maker should be put in the stocks, and I would have the machine publicly burnt by the common executioner, and I guess this is sort of the seventeen ninety s equivalent of like asking your grandmother to buy you a copy of doom for Christmas and the nineteen nineties. Yeah. Well, I'm glad that you brought up doom here and just be because it's easy for us to look back on this account. And thank all these children have more Barbara's age, but go to any toy store and look at the machine gun based toys that are on display there all the various guns true true murder weapons in not even netted of bureaucratic execution, but weapons of just wanting violence. These are all represented in toys even today. Likewise, I can't help but think back on. How much I wanted the slime pit when I was a kid. I do what does that? This was a masters of the universe play-set that device in basically, you would lock he man or some other figure into the machine and it was like shaped like a skull. And then it would dump slime on top of the head of the poor hero. And it was I think maybe the actual lower. It was like would make them mutate or something, but it was very much. It was very much like a guillotine except instead of a blade. It was slimy. It was clearly an instrument of execution of ritualized death for your toys. So you're ranging an execution for he-man. Exactly. So, you know, the the idea of a toy guillotine, it makes perfect sense. We can't we can only distance ourselves from such an idea so much though, I also have to wonder I somehow detect between the lines. This could have been one of those situations where an Robert I bet you're familiar with this where a dad buys or requests a toy for his child because secretly. He wants to play. Oh, yes. In fact, Gert to wrote in Faust, quote ages, no second childhood age makes plain children. We were true children. We remain again much. Like it is today. And we mentioned the guitar was responsible for introducing legislation that would eventually lead the French National Assembly to say, okay, we're only going to be killing people by beheading machine. Now that that's that's going to be the new method of execution. That's what's humane. That's what the states should be up to. And so I think in just a minute we should turn to the machine itself. But I just wanted quickly before we do that to discuss where it is that this rumor came from the Ghia Tom was killed by the machine that he recommended putting in place for executions in France. And I think I know maybe a few threads of where the story came from. Obviously, we had that ironic story of the Earl of Morton earlier, right, right? So see how that might have influenced confused. The telling right. But then there are a couple of other examples so doctor Antoine Louis. The secretary of the academy of medicine and physician to king Louis, the one who we talked about earlier chairing that committee that designed the device he was actually temporarily condemned to die in the machine that he designed or helped design though, he escaped this fate basically during a change of power. So he narrowly escaped going to the teen himself and then king Louis. The sixteenth who was interested in mechanical engineering is said to have made refinements to the design of the Gatineau like recommending angled blade while he was still in power before the device was eventually turned on the king himself in on his wife marie-antoinette. And so there's another kind of creator and then killed by his creation irony there since he apparently, or at least allegedly offered refinements to the design or I will on that note. We're going to take one more break when we come back. We'll discuss the machine itself in more detail. Sale. And we'll also discuss its. Most serial killers don't make any effort to involve the media or investigators. They're very secretive. They don't want tension. They almost want their crimes to go on notice. But the idea of committing a crime, and then calling the police and bragging about it. That's a whole 'nother level of terror. Dear editor this is zone. Expe-? If you do not print the cipher by the afternoon of Friday first of August. I will go on a kill rampage Friday night L cruise around all weekend killing people in the night and move on to kill again. The best part of it is that when I die. I'll be reborn in paradise. And all that I have killed will become my slates. From the creators of Atlanta monster come season two. This is monster the zodiac killer. Listen and subscribe at apple podcasts or on the iheartradio app. All right. We're back. So now, we're at the machine itself, the French guillotine of the seventeen eighty s and onward and the question is was it actually built. We'll of course. Yes. This one was definitely built some of the inventions who we were discussing this show. You know, maybe didn't get out of the blueprint phase. The this definitely saw action. So after the legal standard of execution by machine was approved by the national assembly in seventeen ninety one the construction of the machine was delegated to a politician named Pierre. Louis red ari'el who I'm always going to struggle with that name. So I'll just call him Pierre. He apparently had trouble finding a contractor who could build the machine since. No one wanted their name associated with it. And eventually found a taker is take her from Germany, and so the guillotine was constructed by a German harpsichord maker named Tobias Schmidt. Apparently, he also. Applied a leather sack that would catch heads. Now. You you just gotta wonder about to bias. I can just imagine the scenario. It's like so Honey, what are you working on today? I this new contract it pays. Well, it's going to really help us out next month. Oh, who you putting hot harpsichord for? Well, let's not quite a harpsichord while I'm just imagining you in his shop while he's working on the guillotine that harpsichord music is playing dainty. Anyway, according to the memoirs of the French executioner on re Clements sandstone in eighteen seventy six cents on came from a line of a long line of executioners. And he so he has these memoirs about his family's exploits cutting off heads and performing executions in France, and his memoirs are considered probably only partially reliable, but is up close description of the workings of the guillotine is fairly straightforward. So I I feel like he's probably on the right track here. All right. I'm going to read part of this in. I'm to go for an executioner voice. He'll do it on a scaffold from seventy eight feet high to parallel bars or made fest and one end their top part is United by strong crossbar to this. Crossbars added thick iron ring in which is passed a rope which fixes retains Aram, this perpendicularly armed with sharp and broad blade, which gradually becomes broader on all its surface. So then instead of striking perpendicularly it strikes sideways. So that there is not an inch of the blade that does not serve the ram ways from sixty to eighty pounds. And it's Wade is doubled. When it begins to slide down. It is included in the groove of the bars of spring makes it fast to the left bar aband- of iron to sins along the outside of the same bar and the handle his locked to a ring with a padlock. So that no accident is possible. And the weighed only falls from the executioner interferes two-way plink, strong straps fastened. By which the criminals attached under the armpits and over the legs. So that the body cannot move as soon as the way playing goes down the head being between the bars you supported by a rounded crossbar, the executioners assistance, lower another rounded crossbar the head being thus grooved in a perfect circle, which prevents it from moving in any way. This precaution is indispensable. In regard to the terrible inconveniences of fear the executioner than touches the spring. The whole affair is done. So quickly that only the thump of the blade when it slides down and forms, the spectators that the culprit is no longer of the living, the head falls into a basket full of brand. And the body is pushed into another wicker basket lined with very thick leather. Huzzah, a heck of a reading Robert. Yeah. This is going to do a number of my throat, but I'm sorry. Maybe I should have taken part of it. But I was just enjoying listening to your Anri Clem on. Well, there's a precision in his in his description of the act that I felt like I had had to capture now, obviously. So he's described how the device works now. But they had to test it out before they could make sure to to try it on a human, right? So right. I, you know, you always wonder like how do you test guillotine you put a watermelon in there? Do you Gallagher it well, especially could. But it's kind of a waste of a good melon. And ultimately you want to test it on the real thing. Right. So they use dead bodies. Oh, yeah. Also farm animals, like sheep and calves. Yeah. 'cause I mean, it makes sense. You wanna make sure you're cutting through actual vertebrate tissue there, most notably the neck and then on April twenty fifth seventeen ninety two officials installed and use the teen for the first time. Right. So the first victim of the French guillotine was nNcholas jock Bill ta who was a highway man, and he was executed where the machine was erected at the. Plus digressive, and there's so large crowd came out, obviously to witness the first execution by the new machine. But it was reported that the crowd was somewhat unimpressed, and they found the efficiency of the killing less entertaining than the forms of execution. They were used to even the more classic beheadings, nevertheless overtime, the executions at the teen became a very popular spectator event during the reign of terror, and you know, in generally afterwards when the team was used people would show up to watch. So we'll see a little success here. Like, it was clearly less dramatic. There was less theater in the act and yet at the same time few things are more dramatic in life than the ending of life. Like, this is the people you can understand why people would still turn out even if you had made things a little more precise. Now, putting aside the question, I guess we can talk talk about new minute over whether it's ever humane to just execute. Somebody was it actually. True. The the the guillotine was a more refined more humane version of execution than what came before was it was it an improvement. If you were somebody who is interested in reducing the suffering of humankind. Yeah. I mean, you could again you could say the concept is inherently controversial. But still others took issue. Just how humane it was so oppression. Doctor Samuel Thomas summering who lives seventeenth fifty five through eighteen thirty. He studied the cadavers of guillotine victims, and he argued that severed heads we're still capable feeling and since any wrote an essay on this in seventeen ninety five. So he was something of a polymath. In addition to naming the twelve pairs of cranial nerves. He also invented telegraphic system and made discoveries in paleontology specifically with pterodactyl fossils. They're not dinosaurs, folks, different thing. So this was this was not just a wasn't just some crazy guy coming up in Santa the heads are still alive. He was he was making a an expert argument that like I'm not sure that this is great what we're doing. Maybe it's a little it's almost a little too precise. Yeah. The core takeaway of his essay on the inhumanity of the teen was that we can't rule out that it's possible that a severed head could still be having experience could experience being severed. Now, we know there were a lot of tales of this happening right of of people running to check out the heads of the decapitated in various doctors checking in and seeing what was going on with the is. There was a lot of interest in this in determining a what happens to consciousness at death. Like, this was a perfect clinical exercise of for for weighing in on it. Yeah. The classic tales about this thing, it repeated the most often or like seeing someone's cheeks flush with anger when they behold someone who who someone who mocks them or something like that or or who slaps him in the face or thinking that that a severed head would be. Looking at people as if it recognized them. Yes. Something like that. Yeah. Obviously, there's a lot of indulgent with these stories, but we don't know how much addressed them. Yeah. We really don't know how much trust them. But we do know today that that any kind of activity seen in the the heads after death. Most of this is going to be reflective twitching of muscles. So. Basically, coma and brain death are probably going to occur within two to three seconds of decapitation due to interruption of blood flow to the brain. So just the massive sudden drop in blood pressure. Yeah, that's going to bring it. Yeah. So any tales of like confronting the head having any kind of like moment of human contact even just in the is it's pretty clear that that is all just embellishment of stories or just wishful thinking on the part of the observer. So what is the legacy of this machine this machine of bureaucratic violence? And if we try to look at it from with our perspective from today with our hindsight, and you know, with the kind of value, judgments, we would make was the guillotine a step forward or a step backward. Was it as Gaetano envisioned a more humane way of doing business when the state was just couldn't be convinced not to kill people or did it perhaps? Enable a worse state of affairs where more people could be sent to their deaths with impunity than would have been the case otherwise. Yeah. I think he could probably go either way on it. I mean, one thing's for certain it. It changed the way executions were performed in France for nearly two hundred years. He was actually used in France up until nineteen seventy seven. That's when the last execution occurred the team before the outline of capital punishment in nineteen Eighty-one. It also took on symbolic way is just this this symbol of the reign of terror and perhaps to a larger extent a symbol of systematically, violent rebellion. Yeah. I read one author point out certainly not in defending the teen or the use of the teen. But it just pointing out a kind of strange irony that the guillotine now to us symbolizes, this this horror this horror period of bureaucratic violence, which it certainly was. But we look at that. And we think of that period as a reign of terror, but don't think the same way say about the Napoleonic wars which killed far more people than the guillotine. Did not that that makes the killings in the teen any less horrific has true. Now, you know, one of the one thing about the the weirdness of this whole situation that stands out. I mean aside from just the inherently weird nature of beheading machine a machine that cuts off heads. There is still something highly symbolic going on here. I think to the means of execution and you'll typically see an expression of power involved say, it's a physical strength, or you know, vengeful spirit or increasingly a culture's greatest, technological achievements. Isn't it weird to think about how these methods climbed the tree of developing technology? So starting with varying levels of tool proficiency axes and swords weapons weapon. Crafting then we go into gun powder know, firing squads electricity and the electric chair. It is weird to trace through history execution methods. Just sort of like tracking with whatever's. The most interesting new technology. We have avail-. Yet chemicals pharmaceuticals may why an electric chair that is just such a strange idea to even come up with. Yeah. French philosopher, Michelle Fuko, he he weighed in on this. And he pointed out that penal technology is, of course, an expression of power, but we also have to dwell on the fact that it does this through every day technology, ubiquitous technology. So if it's something like electricity, or you know, or even far Masuda chemicals, it's taking aspects of everyday life and turning them into the the system the tool of of Justice. So like, our everyday use of energy in the consumer economy, constant reminder of the methods of death that the state can inflict upon people if they if they don't say in line exactly now a one small area of the legacy of the guillotine comes down to its use in medical terminology. So there are two primary means of. Amputation in terms of like, you taking a limb or whatever you you have flap amputation, which flaps of flesh are left. So that you can fold them in close, the stump of the wound. And then they're guillotine amputations, which which are more of a straight down affair with no immediate concerns for flap tissue. So in guillotine, amputation. It's more about cutting out infected tissue and making sure drainage proper drainage occurs. And then secondary surgery is performed to create the flap tissue to close everything off into a stump. But obviously that's like a secondary Appalachian. You wouldn't you wouldn't have called that guillotine cutting in the surgical since before the teen. Right. But is certainly an example, where if you're you you encountered this terminology now in in medical science, and it's from the use of this execution device that being said, there's a lot of medical terminology that stems from their weapons and so forth. Of course. So I wanna come back to this question that. We've been teasing throughout where you can't help. But wonder if Josephine yes, Kia Thanh pushed us in exactly the wrong direction, if he was actually against the death penalty and trying to institute more humane treatment of criminals, I you know, it's hard not to notice that by sanitizing a horrible act. It often seems like you make the act easier to carry out. And I mean, just think about how this applies to modern methods of state-sanctioned killing everything from lethal injection to drone strikes does the sanitizing and distancing in de personalization opportunity provided by lethal technology. Encourage us to to make ourselves able to kill more while feeling less about it. Yeah. I mean, ultimately is the the botched execution that we've discussed already are those not maybe a more honest depiction of what's going on this this this. Fallible barbaric, human effort, not this precision of the holy blameless machine. Well, I mean, obviously, we're not going to sit here and advocate, brutal botched executions, Jack ketch hacking at us with a sword or an axe. But yeah, at least with that. I'm not saying that's preferable. But I do see what you're saying that it's at least there you're acknowledging that something brutal and weird is going on. And you can't just, you know, clean it up in your mind and ignore it because you're hearing the screams and splattering on you. And it's so brutal that it's almost funny. You know, it's interesting, you know, in the show, we talk about innovation and inventions, and how how they changed the world. And and so often he's heated that people have to look back in try to figure out what changed and how it changed us. An here. We are hundreds of years later looking back and saying, well, what did the guillotine mean? What did it do? And what are the ultimate ramification? Of this advancement. Well, I posit that maybe one take away from it is the the truth is it has showed us that. There is no good or clean or sanitary way to kill a person, and any belief that there is in fact, turns out to be a kind of brutalizing and dehumanizing Lucien. All right.

Pokemon: The First Movie (Mewtwo Strikes Back)

"Everyone has a dream that fills their heart a journey. They must take destiny to fail as close as your imagination insists magical place when wondrous creatures with incredible powers help make dreams come true. It's the world. Welcome to now, playings pope Amman retrospective series. That you ever see double rear on the big screen part of now playing video game movie review series. Not that the game. Hosted by Arnie your dictum to caffeine. I could stop whatever I want. These are just choices another round extra shot. Thank you Sweden. Justin. And Stewart then this is just one more channel they follow their hearts that what sets them apart and will make them came on. This podcast may contain detail. What spoilers and mild language? This is what a French would call fees. Listener discretion is advised. We're going to do this. Jets. The first movie, I choose you. Starring Veronica Taylor. I IQ Tani Rachel Lewis. Eric Stewart directed by Kunihiko Yama, take that back. You'll jaba. Don't we talk about my mom? This is Arnie us. Your mythical podcast host and bicker bicker pickets do asking why am I here? And this is Justin, and I would be lying if I said that nobody's ever accused me of being a pocket monster. So I'm here. There's monster and my pants. Oh, I know that song. So welcome one welcome all to every retrospective. We've ever done. Somebody has had a finger hold. We usually have the fan who's going to be the one who guides us through this world be it Stewart with these Scorsese Takako stuff or even me with the mutant ninja turtles. But I think this is our first time where every host every single host, even the ones not on this, call would be virtually entirely out of their depth as we weighed into the waters that are poking mon-. I think it's like a performance art version of three men and a baby we're just gonna be passing the ground. Like, how do we change the diapers? I don't know how this works. I fully admit I mean, I think if you've listened to me talking about this upcoming wing of the now playing arcade, the reason why we're doing it is it's a video game. And we need to cover all of that. And you didn't even know that you thought for. Sure, we were getting out of it. I don't nothing. I think I knew that they translated as pocket monsters, but beyond that, I knew nothing, and so my attitude approaching this is I have to just leap into the air and say, I love it and just embrace every creative choice as something that is for me because I can tell you if I were being completely honest. This is just nothing I would ever think that I would need to go. Seek out that said I will say I've learned a lot. And I've been surprised by a lot of what Pokemon is I'll agree with that. I have approached this almost as an anthropologist going into study, foreign culture, I have genuine curiosity. Like, I said Stewart had thought the started as a card game. I was like no it started as a video game. Unfortunately, I was right. So here we are. But I had genuine curiosity as we got here. How did it start? When did it start? What are all these various games that? I hear people talking about Pok Mon diamond and Pokemon black and Pok Mon fire and all of this. And I'm like, I really want to understand that legitimately. However, like, Stuart this is never something. That would intentionally go in my Netflix queue. And in fact, I'm actually disappointed watching this on next flicks is going to skew my suggestions years to come get Keough recommendations dragon ball z is already taken over the home screen with that said, I think it's the job of every critic to be able to say whether a film is good or bad whether or not it's for them. You know, I don't think Michael Medved is very good critic because he'll never give a horror movie a good review because he just hates horror movies. I think that's the difference between a good critic in a bad is one who can examine the arts and the technicality and the writing and not just go. I would never choose to be here. So that's my approach to the pokey movies. I think. I think that's fair. But the start of this conversation is making me wonder now, if I was an absentee father while my kid Tyler was grown up because he was way into Pok Mon, but guess what I never had to sit down and watch any of these Pokemon movies. I just knew he had some the cards. He had some the toys and stuff like that. But you know, I went back and talk to a little bit and he's well versed in all this stuff. So either I wasn't around while he was watching this stuff growing up or just kind of lucked out and just missed it. You know, I don't think it means. You're bad, dad. I do think that people can indulge their children without knowing what they're giving them like they're just the call you like this. Let me just by these things. I mean, we can all remember being bought presence. We didn't want because the adults thought, oh, this is part of what you like. And it was like, no. This has nothing to do. You bought me? And then television cartridge play Tari. Well, never forget, my mom. Buy me, the go bots play sets. Yes. Is she thinking, but yeah. No, that's no reflection on you. I get a lot of surprises starting with for me. Yes. Chicken and egg. Where did this all begin Pok Mon was developed by game designer? I assumed it was like Hello kitty or Kim Kardashian Pika chew was just famous for being famous and COPD up on brands just all at once. It's a lifestyle choice. If you want a water by pokey water, like it's just on everything. I didn't think the video games were even to selling point. And yet this is really surprising to me. The Pok Mon family of video games is the second best selling video game franchise of all times. Then surprise number two. I was stunned by I reread that sentence twenty times second only to the Mario family of games and Mario has a fifteen year headstarts. So that means that odds are Pokemon will overtake Mario in the neck. Decade how well we'll see, you know, we never know with trans. I know they're working on Mario movies. So maybe that will happen. We are of course, building up to detective Pika chew a live action. Sordo one of those half animated gotta to get some child actor to walk around. With Pika Choo voiced by Ryan Reynolds this summer, I think of no movie better for you Stu than Ryan Reynolds. He could shoot everything. I love it. Again. That's mike. Would. I have no other words. I love it. It's great. I'm such a pokey fan. I really thought that when I saw that trailer was going to end with like college, humor stinger, something the onion. Okay. I get it. But no, it's real right? It is really happening. It's something. I did neither Pokemon did not go on our calendar. Many times we're out of order because this game premiered in ninety six and we've been covering games premiered after the millennium again, I did not believe this was a game franchise. But not only is it. It's one of the most popular revolt. I didn't necessarily know either my experience with Pokemon in the past comes from nephews. And I have a couple of friends one of whom I talk about on the show. He went with me to green lantern anyone with me to aqua-, man. He has a whole pokey side of his life that I choose just to not acknowledged because I will I felt like before this deep dive. I'd respect him more. If I didn't know how into Pok Mon he was. I mean, we all have that geek side. I mean, I feel I. There's just things that no one else is going to understand you that the common people, you just you have a private life. And so, yeah, if you're into Pok Mon and you're over twenty five. Yeah. You may not share that with everyone in your circle of friends. What's weird is thinking about when this hit big in the states though, the late nineties when my nephew's were very young. And yeah, I watched perhaps half an episode of the cartoon series. I found it to be headache-inducing. Just because of how out it seems like they were always shouting. I like could you not speak in a normal tone of this is when I realized I was being an old, man. I was twenty five, but I was feeling really old when my nephew's were just glued to Pok Mon, and I saw them have cards and things, but I started toy journalism in two thousand five Pokemon was only seven I have been at so many events with Pika chew. I have photos from over the span of years from two thousand six to twenty fifteen of Mario when p. Shoe posing together, not you you didn't jump in there and photo bomb the cameraman. Okay. Poke Amman seems like once it's been here. It's never really gone away. I mean, sure it's ebbed and flowed popularity and even before like Pokemon go came out and took over the world there for a few months. I would still remember like seeing releases of two games at a time a red and silver and not really understanding what was going on. So the game has always been there always had a fan base. Here's another surprise. I had and it's a doorway into talking about how the game came to be Pok Mon spring strum the craters love of entomology. He was a young man in a forest area outside Tokyo growing up in the seventies. Who got the nickname Dr bug because his friends knew he liked to go out and collect critters, and this is an extension of that his original idea when he saw the GameBoy was wow that link cable could actually be used to transfer one bug. To the other. It's just a natural progression for his love of classifying, insects and files and all to have all of these little monsters, and I think for many people bugs are gross and monstrous for him. It was a passion stemming back before he was even into designing video games. He did have other video games before Pok Mon. I wondering if you guys know Mendel palace. Most of these weren't released in the states. Now that one's in NS. Okay. The no, I don't know that one. But I did look him up and the majority of his games weren't released. There's two that came in the states Mendel palace. I've never selling it. I was in the electron IX. But they stuck me in toys. I ended up selling quite a few copies. It was a puzzle game, and then Yoshi Mario's dragon dinosaur, whatever he is. I know I mean, I remember Yoshi showing up at a Super Mario game. And then he got a spin off of his own. I know of it. Yeah. It was his gateway into GameBoy. I realized that only have never played Pokemon. I've actually never held an intendo GameBoy. I've never held. A portable game system where those good my sense was that it was always crap when you reduce video games to that size, and that level of design their original GameBoy was basically just a tetris player. I mean beyond that there was no color, just a gray and black LED screen. That's what I remember about it. Its biggest game was tetris. I never owned one so prising -ly, but I rented one there was a place in town that would rent you one. And I wanted to try it out because there was a Spiderman game on it. And I was really into comics. We're talking nineteen ninety ninety one. So I rented it played it for a week. And I remember thinking that it was kinda slow the graphics were small and black and white and hokey and it was completely front lit. So if you were in a dark room, you couldn't see any oh interesting. They actually ended up selling an adapter of flashlight that snapped on the front that would shine a light on the screen. So you could see it in the car at night and things. I actually went the other way, I got a Sega game gear, which very ironically, it's touting you can see us in the dark, but you couldn't see him in the daytime. We'll get one for the day. I ended up getting my first game. Boy was the GameBoy advance. Which was like the third jet had GameBoy GameBoy color, then they got to the Game Boy advance which would still play all the old game. So I got that. So that it would lay some of those games for me. And now, I find myself the owner of a three D S specifically because of this Pokemon retrospective series because I need to play some Pokemon games. And this is what they're on. Yeah. They were made the thought was it needed to be a handheld system because you could go out in the forest and collect them all and there is something about just the classification when you start to learn about Pokemon as I have you find out it's very particular to region. Did they come from condo? Do. They come from the orange aisles. And there's also a type like there's eighteen different sources of power. You could have a psychic one fire one dragon grass. I mean, it is about being nerdy. And specific and naming it that. It is part of the thrill is to know that there are one hundred fifty different monsters out in the forest, and you've got to collect them. All. Yeah. You learned that the hard way we'll talk about that next week. That is the one thing that I have always known about it, though is that growing up in the age that we grew up the collect them all came from Kenner in Star Wars. So that's that's what kind of created our generation's need to go out and complete a collection, and I could see from very early on. That's what Pokemon was doing to even if I didn't understand it. I knew that they were trying to get kids to understand each of these characters and some of them are more special some were less powerful. But you had have a collection of all of them surprise number four. Did you guys know first of all Justin did you play the game ever? Like, I know you weren't into it. But did you even give it a whirl? No, I didn't tell Pokemon go came about. I had never touched a Pokemon game to even try it out. So I was completely in the dark on it. I had no idea that it was a role playing game slash fighting game. I assumed that it was kinda like Tom Gottschee member virtual pets like the whole thing was like you grow nurture them. And you if you devote enough time to this little battery power. Device. It will grow up into something that doesn't cry all the time. I knew Pokemon got bigger. I assumed that the fund was to catch a Pok Mon classify Pok Mon and make it your friend. Now, I knew there was fighting. I mean, just what little I knew I knew there was the combat. So I knew it was a fighting game. I was surprised though defined. It was a role playing game of the three of us Stewart did a deep dive into pokey culture. I took it on to explore the world of Pokemon video games. Do this day. I still have not played a video game. I let you do all of that. But I love it. I started off with the original Pok Mon red which came out with Pokemon blue now to me. I'm like, okay. At least they came out during the GameBoy color. I mean, why else would you call it? No, actually, they didn't these are black and white games named by colors, which just seems like a horrible tease. You want rag? You want blue all you've got his gray. Same part of the success of this. When I was looking back on the history of the creator satori to Jiri. It seemed like the stroke of genius. Here was that he got people to buy it twice or in some cases, multiple times multiple iterations. But that there was one hundred fifty monsters broken up between red and blue you could only get seventy five and one game. I think it was eighty there was a crossover period of it. There were some in both. But yet if you wanted them all what you're supposed to do theoretically because it's the same game. I played red. And then I played blue you are the same character. It's the same levels, though difference is the monsters in it and come to think of it. I played pretty deep into red and pretty deep into blue. And I haven't noticed a huge difference. I mean, they both have Pika choose. Okay. And they both have that was my question where these characters that. I know from having watched cartoons all there in the original. It seems like all this going to be there. I believe so now I played a lot more blue that I played read, but I played deep enough into read that I started to know the types, and I knew the combat and all of that. So the intent I could look at this generously or crass crassly crass viewpoint would be you have to buy the same game twice. Generously. Would be you can buy either one. And then you just literally yet, you trade with your friend. And how does that work? You literally a Game Boy cable, and you can hit a button, and it goes like Email kind of. I mean, there was a game link cable before this came out. It was what inspired this game. And it was so that you could play head to head place like street fighter, for example, and fight each other and this game link cable would allow you to do that. And in the game. There's a little counter you go to do trading from other color, you're using the word trading. My thought was I knew that there was a little bit of fighting. But I kind of thought it was like another nine. Nineties game. Pause. Remember like milk. Down. And whatever flips over I thought it was like you hustled, each other winner-takes-all, and you take no trade, you take somebody's Pok Mon away from them. Is it not that aggressive? No, no. And I thought the same thing about magic the gathering back in the day is that it was like gambling. You were gambling your cards. And if you lost you could lose thousands of dollars worth of cards. No, I mean, you do not steal from other players even NPC's in the game. If you're going up against Brock Brock is actually the name of the first trainer in the first game. Okay. She's also in the cartoon, that's where I know him. Of course, what of our co host. He doesn't like to talk about his Pokemon. But when I'm fighting Brock in the game. It's basically a boss you have to pass the moss in order to move on in the map. So if you don't have friends to trade with they have virtual friends to fight. Well, you have to fight the virtual people to go to new areas and get more Pokemon because there's you have to get to the mountains to get the rock Pokemon. I've gotta get to the water to get the water Pokemon. So fighting against an NPC in the game. I can't steal their Pokemon, you only steel Pok Mon in the wild who are unknown d-. And is there any part of the game that is just about you lifting up rocks and looking under bushes, and literally finding the monster. Like is it hard to find them? Or is it all about two people have found one? And now they're going to fight for it. Neither let me let me explain the game because I was a little surprised and unfortunately, the game measures how long you've played it and tells me how many hours of my life. I have spent I have spent about thirty five hours. Playing Pok Mon. You're going to tell me like you'd sold. All your Star Wars stuff was all in. So you're just this character ten year old whatever you name yourself, ash Ketchum. That's one of the default. Ames's ask I just put in the name of Arne. Okay. And you at the age of ten are able to leave home go out on your own and become a Pok Mon trainer. That's the story of the game. And it's very much like the very first of the cartoon because I watched a few episodes of it. I was surprised how much the cartoon was starting the same way as the game. And you'd go next door to a professor's house, and he'd give you your first Pokemon, and you could choose between a squirrel a Boba sore or Sharma nder, then you just go out, and you wander around, and if you go into grassy areas, then Pok Mon popout attack. You it's not like you're fighting over who can get that one. You're just wandering through the grass and basically the program will say. Okay. Every time you move a hacks. It's rolling a die behind the screen. Does one pop up here. Does one pop up here. There's one pop up here. Oh, okay. And then you walk enough in the grass one pops up you fight it to weaken it, and then you can throw a pokey ball and catch it got it or you can defeat it. Okay. So one vite is really you and the beast, and then once you catch it you can pitted against somebody else's, right? You never fight. It's beast versus beast you as the trainer choose which beast goes out. And what moves they do? Okay. But here's what's really hit me. I was shocked to hell. There's another game. I really got into as part of this video game retrospective series that this not just reminded me of but ripped off. Okay. When I played what is it? Final fantasy. Oh, well, I definitely played that final fantasy part. One was a role playing game where you picked your class of people at the start, right? And you walked in the forest. I know exactly what you're saying. Now. Yes, there's a lot of wandering game. And you just wander in the forest, and then monsters will pop up, and you fight the monsters, and you get experience points, and you level up and you get new powers as you go. I'm like son of a biscuit you guys ripped off idle fantasy, and then I ended up reading, and it was the designers love bug collecting. But he also loved final fantasy. He literally took the final fantasy Game Boy game, and we're gonna make this with bugs. So it is final fantasy part one with the only difference being when you're fighting someone you could out capture them and bring them as part of your squad. But to a T turn based combat and I played a lot of Pokemon. I started with red and blue that I decided to try out what yellow was to see how that differed. It was for the Game Boy color. This is where they rewrote it a little bit. Now, all of a sudden, you have a Pika chew following you as your first Pokemon, and he won't go in the ball. Does that sound like a certain cartoon story? So they with yellow just redid it. And now Pika choose a main character, which was actually completely bad because peak it she was so damn tough that it makes all the early combat way too easy. Surprisingly though because I liked final fantasy a lot. I found myself playing this more than I had to for research purposes, myself in the game. So I am kind of right? You are thinking about collecting getting some more. No. Here's the thing about Pokemon is. It's just a little too cutesy where I would never be seen in public wearing a Pok Mon shirt. It's just too cute. And what I see cute. I think of two things children and women, you know, because women can go out in pink, my little pony shirts. And that's fine. That's cute ever. Man goes out in a pink. My little pony shirt. You're going to get some looks. I'm not saying you should get looks or shouldn't get looks. But you're gonna get looks no matter what. And I totally get that. And you know, what's interesting reading the history of the game. There was a real discussion. Like this came out in February ninety six in Japan, and it took till September ninety eight to make it to the states. And the reason was there was a real debate about baby. We don't just translate the text. Maybe we redesigned the monster. So that they are more monstrous so that they they aren't seen as Wimpy, and you know, Japan nation, if isn't always translatable to America, there have been instances where Astro boy or Hello kitty have gotten a toehold here in this country. But by and large at that time, I think it would have been an open question as to whether p chew would've been cute are too cute, frankly for gamers in the states. It was too cute. For me. It tarnished my entire reputation of Pok Mon thinking of it only as a infantile property, not just kitty. But literally like this game should be played by kindergartners. Again. I didn't know they were games. I thought it was a children's character Barney or Teletubbies I thought it was. Made for children, and then it just found its way to everything that children touch. But I'm surprised how much I actually did. Enjoy the game because it is a final fantasy rip. The only thing I can say is final fantasy makes me think a little bit more this game. I realized after playing it got mindless, it was literally like I could watch a movie while playing and pay ninety nine percent attention to the movie and literally just like mash, a wander through grass mash, a it takes zero brain power, but it is a little bit addictive. As I I didn't want to collect them. All I certainly don't want to buy a second system. So that can transfer them from a different game. But I did want to explore the map. I wanted to see all the different regions offered. So honestly, I no longer will judge my friend who's constantly coming over with his three DS to play the newest Pok Mon the games are habitual, and they're fun and they're role playing and they're not as silly as I thought they would. Be one question that I had certainly as I was watching the cartoons and everything else. I know they fight. I know they lose they get collected and repurpose they go to Pok Mon hospitals sinners, I think what they call. And there's joy, we'll take care of them. But can they die in the game? Is it like atomic Gachi or other role playing where you can beat on something long enough that it just goes four legs up? No, the specifically it says they faint they don't even get knocked out your Pokemon fainted. It is kid gloves when you lose combat, and there's no training that was something that actually dissappointed me as your called the Pok Mon trainer. I thought you'd actually have to work with them going in I expected tomah Gottschee. I really did. I thought I'd have to remember to feed Pika chew every few hours or something. No. You're the trainer. But there's no training. Just you fight with them. They level up, and that's quote, unquote, training them new power. You also can pick up power ups and train them power. Just by pushing. One button. But there's no care and feeding of these things very different than a virtual pet. Yeah. So I was surprised how little of that. There was in the yellow peak. You doesn't like you to start to mirror the TV series. And so you have to talk to him, which means just face him hit a and then you'll see his face, and the more you do that the more he warms to you. And then once he smiling. Okay. Whatever I threw him in a computer because he wasn't even helpful when fighting Brock. So you just brought up something that has been a major question for me while sitting down watching these things obviously the game came first, but how close was the game and the TV series like was the TV series years later or was that something that they kind of drove each other one year later, and it it kinda hit everything like to put it in perspective, February nineteen Ninety-six in Japan. We get red and green actually those were the colors in Japan. And then they released subsequent one that you could get in through mail order in the fall, they introduce the trading cards with the same. Characters. They just kind of wanted to see is this going to fly huge success huge numbers. So by March April they're able to have a comic book and they're having an entire season. The indigo league I think what's probably considered the Pokemon cartoon are the I eighty two episodes that will run from April ninety seven all the way through this movie. We're here to talk about and beyond it won't stop until January ninety nine and while they have series in them from what I could tell the Pokemon TV series is like the Simpsons. You forget it. But it still going on. It's been going for twenty years hundreds and hundreds of episodes that indigo league they call it the first season it was broken into two seasons here over eighty episodes. Wow. It's huge. And I did my best. I couldn't catch them all and they're not even readily available, but I did do a deep dive to just try and understand the phenomenon from the. That side of things. And so I watched probably twenty episodes of the series are half hour made for kids. God help me. I was like this is really going to hurt, but I instantly saw the appeal and it brought up a semi embarrassing story already. You may want to throw a book at me here. But it reminded me of a certain point when I first met you second grade. What did we like to do we wanted to play dungeons and dragons, but my brother had all the hundred decided ice, and I didn't really know the rules. So I made up campaigns that were filled with hundreds of cats for some reason like you had hundreds of cat like if if I decided to take the campaign underwater here comes scuba like some in scuba geared of the swim-down like GI Joe hats. We'd call it a role playing game. But it was basically a choose your own adventure thing where Stewart would create a story at I would be a character in that story. And I wouldn't be you know, we play a little dungeons and dragons, and I'd be a magic user, we did lots of campaigns. But it seemed like we always went back to the cats. Well, what that was was. We started off as a fantasy where my parents died. I don't know if we should tell this. But I do remember having fantasies, and they left me millions of dollars, and I stayed in that house, and you moved in my roommate sky and then five catch showed up on the doors, and he turned out these were talking magic cats. Yeah. This is like a Disney movie on horribly horribly wrong. This is worse than Pokemon ever. Could it be you capable? And then these five cats were like Smurfs popular, I think that's what I was ripping off. They were all head like hardest. Merv cats were virtually clones. But it wasn't just cats. Come like an entire zoom. By the end. We had a moat around my house for the alligators back Tigers. And there was a ferret who would constantly steal for me. I'd say we jumped the shark early space alien came that we really like overdid it the Al by no QB. Anyway, it was fun. And it passed second grade recess quite often. If I were that age watching indigo league Pok Mon I would be in it. I would be into it. I would be collecting it. I would want to participate in that. That is the mentality. I used to digest those episodes, and it helped it also helped that I've always had Asian dogs. We have Pekinese now I have pugs and there's just something about Pika chew. That reminds me of that animal, although surprise number fourteen peak is electric mouse. I had no idea that it was a rodents. I thought it was a dog. I just thought it was its own thing. I didn't even realize that I didn't go as deep as you. Did I watched five episodes? I wanted to watch the first arc because I realize these movies are all in with the exception of the live action one they're all in continuity. It's all the same characters. And I felt like going into the movie what I was expecting Smersh was very much on my mind. I felt like I should see the good episodes of the Smurfs before. Johanna and p showed up in the movie, I decided to see the origin of how all these people came together and how they got peak chew and all of that. So I watched five episodes. I learned team rocket was I saw Pika chew not like ash, and then come around to as I saw him pick up misty and Brock along the way. And then I was like, okay, I've had enough of this. But I was thinking this is not a TV series that would've ever appealed to me. But you hit me seven years old second grade. Yes. The age my nephew's were around this time when this came out born in ninety ninety one ninety two you're right. That's the time. I was watching Smurfs and things, and if I was into Smurfs I could have very easily gotten into this, which is like Smurfs combat and shows had a overarching storylines, they'd leave on clipping or sometimes and you'd have to watch tomorrow to see what happened X wizard of Oz quality, it's a road quest in which. This ten year old boy is going to town competing in these matches trying to earn badges to become Pokemon master. That is the ultimate goal that he will not achieve by the end of the series. The shock is you think? Well, of course, if I invest into eighty two episodes, I'm going to see him become Pokemon master. He will lose the big contest. And not only will he lose the big contest. But the person he loses to won't win the championship either. Like, he's not even coming in second the adventures of fourth place. Just watch clear ash is ashen America. But he Saotome she and Japan because the creator Toshi saw it as a young version of himself, but also gave him it's a cartoon series. That's been going for twenty one years. Now, he still hasn't won the tournament nor advanced past age ten, but you've skipped ahead. Thanks for ruining it. Now, I guess I won't watch those nine hundred hours of shows. Guess thank you. And according to a YouTube a hundred seven things you need to know about Pok, Mon, okay? I think number eighty two was he never got even past the semi-finals. So shah. Again, you always think Rockies eventually by rocky to he's going to win like set this up as chump. But this is going to bring me to a segment I'd like to introduce every time we do one of these Pokemon shows the pokey controversy because I do think part of the fund that I have as an adult looking into this phenomenon is seeing where it goes wrong where it might be a little too Japanese American audiences this week. I wanna look at this first season and point out some of the controversial episodes the ones that did not air in America. This'll be fun. I know there's one with blue there is and that did air in America. But with that snipped out today did what you're referring to is beach blank out Blasco. Misty misty, the cute redheaded side kick that always seems to be really kind of a tomboy with no sense of sexuality as made to parade around in a bikini to get money while men cat, call and feel chassis hitter. And you know, she even weirder team rocket. We'll talk about a more when we get into the series. But it's Jesse James they they almost seem like twin siblings, but the male decides to get silicone injections and his walking around. That's the boobs in question. It's actually train spooks. Several layers of apprise didn't make the cut in America. Well, if Bugs Bunny could dress up like a woman sure, you know, but did Bugs Bunny, get silicone? Stuffing abroad is just a little bit different. What I didn't realize speak. No misty. Justin. We go to Comecon every year. I didn't realize this is a huge Qasr play thing. I thought the girls in short shorts and yellow tank-tops just that was their fashion. No, they're actually 'cause playing this redhead. I no idea. Yeah. I mean, a lot of this stuff just kind of washes over me, especially when it comes to the style animation. And if I've seen those girls around too, I thought maybe they were like a sailor moon person or some of the property, I'm not aware of. But. Yeah, now that you mentioned it. There are quite a few of them walking around every year. Three more episodes. I'm going to briefly mention episode thirty five would love to have seen this. I saw clips, but apparently they get to one safari zone. Where a Clint Eastwood style guy has its packet heat like he points gun at actually it's face and shoots him. And then later, I mean, it's untranslated they never even thought of airing it in America. So I couldn't I didn't know what was being said. But meow is actually dressed up like Hitler. Like, I don't know what that's about. But I'd love to. And I don't know that they can explain it to be but the Hitler or the gun being shot at children got it banned Christmas Pok Mon mostly in offensive. It was a story line in which team rocket tried to kidnap Santa Claus. They're always up to hijinks. Well, this time they were up to jinx. And this is the black face Pok Mon there was actually a Pokemon that looks very stereotypically like something you cannot air on American television racially insensitive. And I understand that jinx got elected to Virginia governor, but probably nowhere else in America. Would he be able to air on television? And then, of course, the most notorious episode Pok Mon of all the one that I knew about before I even had seen anything cyber soldier Pori gone or electric soldier Pori gone, which in of itself is kind of controversial because the translators were clearly doing something with English. Because what they're talking about this polygons Pori gone is a electric soldier Polly gone in Tron world of computer animation. Ask get sucked into a computer. And they decided it'd be really cool to have all of this light Strope ING affect and sin. Six hundred and thirty five Japanese children to the hospital with seizures giving them epilepsy on December sixteenth nineteen Ninety-seven. What's funniest about that, according to the hundred and eight things you need to know about Pok Mon is the Pok Mon in question. There has never been put back in an episode like he was band, Oregon. Yeah. He's he's aided the country, but it was peaking to who did the flashing. Well, they thought they were a computer virus? And so they shoot missiles at them. And yes, Pika chew blows up those missiles, and it's only six seconds as a fully grown adult looking at it. I thought it looked cool. I can almost forgive the animators for thinking that this wasn't going to be a big deal. At six seconds long. It's not like poltergeist which half the anytime, you're in the room with the static TV. There's a Strobe affect in that can really screw up some people this. It's such a minor part of it. But it was enough. I mean, again, six hundred thirty five kids is a lot. It's also a controversy that had further reached and just cartoons made video games have to start looking at that and put epileptic seizure warnings on the beginning of games and stuff like that. So hen when I went to see glass there were big signs on the door about the Strobe affects every time James McEvoy, changed personality. I didn't even notice that. All right. But yes, I I agree. We were not sensitive to that issue. And I think in Japan culturally kids were just sitting really close to the television screens. So they're really getting a full face of it. I mean, I guess that was part of the problem a three year old with not fully developed ocular abilities sitting that close and getting six seconds of blue and red that fast did a trick. I mean, have you seen Tokyo apartments, they make New York City? Luxuria? There's not a lot of room to sit away from the della vision in anyway, let's get to the movie we're here to discuss why it's. Everything else. That we can start with like my nightmare. Like the worst thing. Pok Mon that I saw if it were like the show I would've only seen one episode Pika choose vacation, which ain't got nothing on Chevy Chase. And Beverly the Angelo. I mean, this is not a vacation you wanna take. I kinda dug the theme song that was kind of a beat. Yeah. I was really into the theme song repeat. After me. I need a vacation. And then I cut it was vitamin c o. I'm glad that she went on from that one hit of graduation. So you know, they used to do this in the old days. Certainly if you want to Pat a feature that's not feature length. You wanna throw a short on and for American audiences. They put twenty two minutes of a gang war between to try to Pok Mon going to theme park. You know, it's narrated by the pokey decks, which for the uninitiated. The pokey decks is something you have in the game. That is. Basically like a palm pilot. Now, it's a Rolodex. And you know, what that was it used to be wrote down things on a card, and then you could pull up someone's phone number by thumbing through it, the idea was it was an encyclopedia of every Pok Mon, but shape and looking like a GameBoy. Yeah. And so it was a digital device that would allow you to keep track of them all and keep stats of them. Well in the cartoon, they can talk. So it's narrated by the pokey decks because with the exception of meow with who is the cat on team rocket. Yeah. Pok Mon can only speak by saying their name. And each syllable is a word. So you can only say p chew it can go in any order Pika Pika. Chu CHU, whatever. But that's all I can say so it has to be narrated to us by the pokey decks. So that we can understand what's going on which I think is actually a crutch because in looney tunes. There were a lot of Jerry's where they never said a word. But I got that story. That's exactly what I would argue is like if it's about language, let's not have any. Let's do physical comedy. This is actually being released in the states. By Warner Brothers, the home brand of looney tunes. This ain't no looney tunes. I mean, this is well one the animation is crude I was prepared for that. Because I had seen the TV show. And they really that. I season is sometimes they would just show a single still impact. People talk over it for five ten seconds. I mean, they really stretched that animation out here. It looks a little bit better. But this is not any polish, and certainly has none of the style and physical comedy of a classic looney. Tune the big thing for Pokemon vans is this was the. The first appearance of Meryl in the animation. It was already a big Pokemon in the games. But apparently, this was the first of many peeka- chew only shorts play by Meryl Streep, of course after her. It's best roll. And in each Pok Mon shorts. They introduce a new Pokemon from an upcoming game marketing thing now peekapoos vacation, I'll say this. It's too long. It's twenty three minutes long. And that is too much for silent Pika chew antics, but it is like to gangs of Pok Mon show up. There's ashen his friends release their Pokemon onto a beach some pokey monitor. They're already in. They're like, this is our beach and peach who gets in between them like, no, no, no, let's not fight. Let's have sporting competitions. It reminded me a little bit like laugh Olympics. Remember laugh Olympics by Hanna Barbera? Yeah. And that can be fun. When you just want to see a bunch of your cartoon characters get together and compete in some way, here it's swimming and running and bubble blowing. Yeah. I mean. Okay. I'm okay. With a lot of that stuff. I think you guys ready set it this padding out the. Runtime of feature movie we haven't seen yet. And inside of this padding out there's padding out these show ten seconds of each Pok Mon in some weird like screensaver. There's like dancing around. I actually thought that was the most inventive part of it as I was like what in the world in my supposed to get out of this. Yeah. And there seems to be some backpedaling, and it made me think about the phenomenon again, if you're aiming for a child audience and your video game is all about fighting. Well, that's not necessarily something you want the children in the audience to emulate, you would be afraid they'd leave the theater punching each other playing Pokemon here. They tried to end on this very false note of all right after we beating each other in the contest, we're going to build a playground together because Pokemon collaboration more than they like confrontation. I bet you there's never been a game where you build a seesaw. I haven't played them all, but there's also the where they all come together to save a dragon that got his head caught in a tree assume. Or drain. I thought if there's a lesson here, it's this should have been called. It's all fun and games until a sharp. Andrew gets his head stuck in a pipe. Indeed. And they try you know, I was thinking about like it seemed like foghorn Leghorn have that little chicken egg. Like, it would be like an egg with feet or something walking around. They try to do that with this baby Pokemon eggs saying that can I just wanted some physical comedy. That's all that. I really needed to connect with was if it were just funny to watch these guys fall over, and it wouldn't even matter. I wouldn't get mad of the confusion of who's who. And what's going on? But it really isn't going for that kind of laugh. I'm not sure what the appeal is supposed to be other than here's those video game characters on the big screen. I think that's it. I think it's just that. I mean, I think about every time we go do see an animated movie and theaters be at big hero six or be. It's incredible to there's always a short at the beginning. And Toy Story. They had Toy Story shores Pixar brought back a lot of characters for shorts. Disney. We saw Balbo. So it's. I think just trying to be that only with the same characters in universe and with that vitamin c song. And it also introduced me to my absolute favorite Pok Mon character is in here. The sidewalk. I just love the side. He's got like these big bovine is. But yet a duck billed platypus build. So it's like between Sida eating the apple that was intended for the crying star egged thing. Again, there's a way of playing that where that does feel like a classic comedy bid of like the baby's crying. And you just ate it's food could have been played so much more. It's just some of this cultural. I do feel like the what was supposed to be funny. Was that the baby was crying? I guess and that just kind of annoying and they didn't want to elaborate on that too much. They didn't milk that for all. It was worth. Yeah. I mean, you could have had the entire twenty minutes. Sure being about trying to stop the baby from crying or wandering away at one point. It goes away on a log and gets lost it a theme park, and we can imagine all kinds of hijinks where you're trying to chase after a baby and payroll, and it doesn't know it's in payroll and walking at great heights. What have you insert cliche after cliche? That's all I wanted and this thing failed. And I wanted to say twenty episodes of the show, there's not. One of them. That's nearly as bad as this. I don't know. This isn't the worst thing I've seen Pokemon so far. But it's not the best either. I did end up watching it twice this record. It was delayed. We were actually going to record this on YouTube birthday YouTube was born on February six. Oh, so we were going to record February six we punted. And so we're no longer on YouTube birthday. So I re watched all this stuff. So that it was fresh for recording at watching it the second time it's ineffective, but not something I'd ever choose to turn on. Yeah. I'm not going to say, I love it. And again, I'm trying to get in that mentality of I love these characters. I love this phenomenon. I love the fact that they're coming to the big screen, but this is a sub-standard episode this wooden fly as a fan of that cartoon. I think it's great that you guys sat back and kind of looked at it and held it up against some classic American type of cartoons. But for me, this is pretty much my introduction to the show. I have not seen a frame of the animation. Oh poor. You. So you've never played the game. You'd never played the card game. You never saw the show. So this was really like your first exposure to Pok Mon how many years, did you cry? My head was spinning trying to figure out all these different characters. You know? And like, I think I got stuck in some sort of Luke finding out that there's an evolved version of peek itchy, and I was like, whoa. I thought he was a one of a kind of dude. But no, there's a bigger batter. Pika chew. That's a big part of the game is when they level up they evolved. So there's three stages. So there was a Caterpillar. So the Caterpillar becomes meta pod. And the meta pod becomes a butter free and Caterpillar to butterfly got it. It's not that. Really? Well. Really, chris. Got it. I have some of that knowledge from Pokemon go. And that's the biggest base knowledge for me when it comes to this property so trying to reverse engineer some of that stuff into here. I wasn't sure. What's what? So my brain is spinning. Oh, that's right. So you did play Pokemon goes. So you had some exposure to the species. Yep. And might be questions coming into this. And I I'm sure what plenty of time to talk about. It is the idea of rarity. When did that come in was that more of a manufacturer's thing card playing thing? Or is that always been part of the cartoons? And to me at you as always just kind of been like, the rarest of Pokemon, or maybe he's just the Mickey Mouse of Pok Mon, I don't know at this point. I think you're close with that second one. I definitely think he's the identifiable icon of the entire brand. But he is the obsession of team rocket when we get into this movie, you'll see Jesse James and meow are always following our heroes. Maybe it's not so clear in this movie as much, but certainly in the episode of the show the dynamic is that. There's this crime syndicate of a bumbling buffoon thieves. They're obsessed with getting Pika chew. They have been since the earliest episodes because even though he looked Wimpy. He has an incredible lightning strike power. He can really zap you. And they said he's a special Pika chew. There's a lot of peak at you. And here's the thing that confused me is, you know, if you get a pet say you get a German shepherd and you name him German shepherd. That's about how clever ashes because other people nickname. There's but his Pika CHU is just the species Pika chew. His sidewalk is just the specie side. So it was like he got a dog named dog. He deserves to be fourth place. So that was what confused me is that the world lot of Pika chew like say, there's a lot of rabbits. But everybody else gave their peak at you names and his peak at you. There's even a Nep Assode. It's actually one of the most beloved, it's a tear Jerker one. I'm going to warn. You goodbye Pika chew where he goes into the forest, and you meet a whole, I don't know. Are they pod pack a bunch of these Pika chew and assets and free and they're going to part, and they even have like some kind of pop singer come in. And you think for about thirty seconds that it was a friendship on the outs. And then, of course, Pika chooses ash, and they continue on. I look forward to that moment where it's I p choose you the thing that I had to know coming out of this laugh Olympics vacation segment was not only who some that really jazzy song at the beginning. But a Pok Mon talked. Why is this Pok Mon speaking English I had to look this up and I've out meow with who is the team rocket meow with. So they're not very good at naming them either. He sort of the Azriel. I mean, he's this villainous cat that he can't talk like Jabber draws. It turns out they gave him a whole back story. I imagine you didn't get to this episode Stewart's. But what happened was there was a female meow with that meow with really wanted to impress me. I was like, I don't date Pokemon. I only humans so always learned to walk upright and learn to speak and did all this to impress girl. At the woman said your way to human for me to ever be with your freak. You're no longer even our species so meow with has a tragic, ROY. Romance in his past which is why he can speak English. Now, here's a dark character. But they're darker still is mute too. And he is the subject of the movie where you're discuss. And I think we can also talk about this other short that ended up not being in the Japanese release. They didn't have this it ended up going to home video on a sequel to this movie, they saw origin too. But I think if you were in theaters in November nineteen ninety nine in the US you are going to see this short. It would have been a reason for Japanese people to fly to America because we were the first ones to see an origin story for the complicated villain character of this film mute to now do my understanding and doing the research is MU was Easter egg in red and blue Pok Mon they said there was one hundred fifty monsters you could collect. But if you dug deep enough MU was the one hundred fifty first MU was supposed to not be collected. Able it was like the final boss that was my understanding. I've not beaten the game because we're talking about little MU this little barrel, white mousy thing. Yeah. Like if you got all of them, you could fight MU. But you were never supposed to be able to catch me you just fought MU. Okay. But there was a glitch in the game that actually allowed people to catch him you if you remember her like if you played Super Mario. And if you just go so far the screen, then run backwards than jump turtle and go up some glitch. It was a lift like that that allowed people against the creator's wishes to catch MU right and MU gamers would have had some knowledge of him coming into this. The idea that there's a mute to would have been the hook. It was like, oh, I've never heard of MU to we're going to see his origins. I in this kind of redundant. If you see the movie, I think you get everything you do in this fourteen minutes short, but MU to actually was in Pokemon, red and blue. Okay. So you would also. So have possibly known MU to before MU from the games, and before this movie, that's not a tongue twister at all. Yes. So this would have been the first time to at least if you were falling animated series as I was you wouldn't have known about this. And so here what we see is team rocket basically funding archaeology expedition into the jungle where they asked this geneticist, Dr Fuji to find what looks like a little fish bone. But it is a fossil of the first Pok Mon he's like the missing link the genetic forebear of all Pok Mon is this little mouse MU everything stems from him it's presumed to have died off. But in fact, because it can turn invisible it's just hard to see no-one there. That's at this temple collecting, the new fossil understands that it's watching them. They go back to a lab and create a mute to trying to get it back into life. I cannot imagine being in theaters especially with six year olds watching Pika choose vacation coming into this. This is unlike any Pok, Mon I've. Ever seen which admittedly was a small sampling. But after watching five episodes of the cartoon of Pika, choose vacation to semi be like this, Indiana Jones leg thing with a scientist whose Spaloni king to try to find a fossil and that it's like doing a Dino DNA type thing there's enough DNA here, we can create it again. Maybe if they saw Jurassic Park, they'd know. Thank you. This is like, hey, I'm coming in virgin is this is complete whiplash for me. We just watched this cutesy get to know Pok Mon cartoon, and now we're dealing with a doctor who took a job on the low key. So he can save his daughter who seems to died in his in purgatory. And he has her essence like what is going on here. I love it. I say that ironically many times, but I actually love that these existential themes are like being get it is suddenly parents are going to be like, I was tuned out. I was looking while they may not have had a cell phone back. They certainly weren't texting. But they were all taking a nap with their kids, and suddenly, mommy where does come from. Where do I come from? What's DNA? These are questions. You didn't wanna have to answer when you took your kids to the Saturday matinee and what's surprising. Is it does remind me I'm not an anime guy. But I've seen some like I saw Princess Muna gnocchi because it was reviewed on the show. I wasn't on that show. But I wanted to keep up and from what I know about it seeing a little bit of ghost in the shell and avatar the last heir bender. There's a lot about spirituality and life and death and essences even the final fantasy movie we discussed had some of that about the souls coming back. And so it doesn't surprise me that Japanese culture would go from Pika choose vacation to this. But as a American born and raised this is like, wow, we are suddenly dark. I mean, this is advertised as Polk. Him on the first movie, if you're watching it doesn't say this Mutubu strikes back and this is like The Empire Strikes back of the Pokemon movies. Dr this short, the origin. So you to is created, and he starts to think it'd be cognizant and he's in this cloning VAT and around him or other Pok Mon as well as this doctor's daughter all attempting to be cloned, and they have a psychic convergence of conversation where he's talking to the doctors dead daughter spirits, right with the idea that she's going to show him what life is being alike, and then no, actually squirrel and all of them are there molecules are just going to break apart, and they're going to die before his eyes. And he will be the only one that does not fail. It's like honestly, a treatise on death. Why do you have to go? I don't know. I just have a feeling it's my time. This is death. What are we doing? And it's not like, hey, they're not hinting at this stuff. I mean, there's a scene where his wife leaves him for being to involve trying to bring his daughter back. I mean, this is heavy heavy stuff for an animated cartoon. Yeah. I need to be very clear. We're not discussing subtext. This is taxed. Yeah. And the other thing to be clear is while we keep talking about children one thing to understand about Japanese popular culture is those lines are very blurry. Adults play with toys, and re comic books and do things that we associate with childhood, excuse me and become more. But you know, what? I mean, it is very culturally supported that. That kind of behavior is done like, it's just not rare. And likewise children are exposed to these kinds of things. I in fact, I can't think of any anime that I would have seen that doesn't have adult themes. And again, we know that sometimes it makes us comfortable because yes, there could be moments of nudity and tentacle rape. And what have you, and it's like, well, I wanna protect. My kids even Pokemon which seems geared to kids will not be entirely for a juvenile audience. And this short is what announces that? I'd like it because I feel like it's up and it's game. And it's like, okay. I don't need to pretend that I'm five years. Six years old. This has something to say to me now exactly my point too as I was like, wow. You've actually invested me. I said at the start of this podcast. I'm gonna have to go in and just analyze something that I would never watch. And I would never watch this. But you grip me with this. I can't even imagine watching this movie like they did in Japan. Or if you just got it on Frick and Blu Ray this short isn't on the Blu Ray. So this prologue to me is a vital part of the Pokemon the movie experience to see this origin. I think if I hadn't what's going to transpire in the movie, I would not be as empathetic to MU two's arc but having seen this. As seeing the origin immu to it really has me empathizing with this creature of abnormally birth wondering its place in the universe. Yeah. It feels a lot like Frankenstein. And again, we pity that monster in that he isn't a monster. And so I think we should get into it Arnie. Why don't you give them a plot summary for the first bogeyman movie? Yes. Or as the titles just pushes in your face. Mutsu strikes back. I can understand why in nineteen ninety nine. They wouldn't want you to strike spec. Especially November fan of medicine come out that year might seem like a little bit of a Star Wars rip off. But one of the rarest Pokemon ever is MU it's so allusive. It's believed extinct, but a scientist named Dr Fujii has been researching cloning in the hopes of bringing back his dead daughter. His research is funded by Giovanni, the leader of evil team rocket Giovanni doesn't care about food. Jeez. Daughter but wants him to clone powerful Pok Mon and modify them to be even stronger. So. When food finds a fossil with the DNA of MU he clones it into the even more powerful MU too. But Mutubu is so intelligent. He begins to have an existential crisis about what is life means since he's a clone made by humans. He destroys the lab, we was created then Giovanni provides MU to armor that helps focus his psychic powers, but MU to realize Giovanni just wants to use them. So he flees and plots revenge, he decides the logical thing to do is to take over the earth and kill all humans and their enslaved Pok Mon, but leaving the free Pok Mon the rest of the world to do this. He starts by inviting the best Pok Mon traders in the world to his island under the guise of tournament included in this roster is ten year old Pok Mon trainer ash Ketchum who brings a as primary Pokemon Pichu as well as his best friends misty and Brock there followed there by their team rocket nemeses Jesse James as well as the talking meow live, all of whom think they're missing out. On a great party. But once on the island mutune reveals his true plans, any clones all the Pokemon. Brought to the island astroid the clothing machine and freeze the original Pocos who go to battle against their clones. But the fight is a brutal stalemate and the real MU reveals himself and tries to stop you to. But that battle appears to be evenly matched as well. Finally, ash Pika chew and team rocket all separately. Come to the conclusion fighting is wrong. A weird message for her Pokemon tournament game at tries to stop the fight between MU and MU to by putting himself in the middle where he's caught in an energy blast and killed his sacrifice makes MU to realize humans do have compassion for Pok Mon that he was rash in his plan to destroy the world, and the Pokemon gathered more Nash, but their tears have the mystical power of life and they revive ash from the dead Mutubu flies off to contemplate his existence. Decides memory is too much for the humans. They're poking mon-. So he wipes their memories and puts them all back on the mainland as credits. Roll. Wow. This is you know, I will say it's not like all the episodes were kitty. But I can't think of anyone that got this deep. Yeah. I do feel like this is a new level of sophistication. And maybe one meant to widen the appeal to teenagers gamers, people that didn't necessarily wash the cartoon because I'm assuming you don't really need to understand the cartoon lower to play those Game Boy games. No, one of the things. I can definitely say about the game. Boy games is it was fun in spite of not knowing the Pokemon. You know, I don't have to know the evolutionary pattern of a clear fairy in order to know that if I fight with this thing, it levels up and becomes a bad ass, you know, as was just combat for combat sake. I never really got into the species. I got into the game place. No the game came. I I would never have had to a watched any of the cartoons. And I'm not even sure that watching the cartoons deepens, my enjoyment of the game at all. Yeah. So bringing those people in it's always good for a franchise, right? If you can get people to eat at the same place that they're playing, and you just want to have it all in house and not outsource anything. You've got converts total cultists people that are going to drink the Kool aid. But you guys helped me out with the beginning of this podcast with a little bit of the history here. But this being the first movie that people are going to come out and see, you know, people have seen the show or anything like that. I was kinda hoping and expecting a little bit of backstory for our main characters. I mean, we're just kind of thrown into this expecting, you know, who ashes his relationship with Pika chew and how these Pok Mon work. It doesn't give you any of that. It says catch up or just stay behind as far as that goes. I think the focus is on to. I mean, again before we get to any of the main characters from the show and gave him mine this mid so not everyone's even seeing the whole episode jet. It's just another adventure for them. The focus is on this Mutubu like Alrighty strike in back. What does he wants? There's a real easy in for me. My first anime that I ever saw was a Kira? And it was about a psychic ten year old who was genetically modified and really comes back in a really angry way when he's revived and it becomes super trippy and violent, and that's kind of what MU to feels like he's like something that should be cute. This young cuddly character that got turned bad. And now, there's something very not cute as he bust out of his jail cell and Rex havoc. Allegri I think the delay in recording. Gimme a benefit because I watched this movie before seeing any of the TV series. And that's when I decided when we delayed. I'm like, I think I need to watch some of the TV series because I want to see these characters come together because you're not giving me that here there were questions that having not seen the TV series. I was really frustrated with like specifically what is team rocket who are these rhyming twins and their talking cat that keep following around. I mean, don't get me wrong. I'm not an idiot. What I quoted them to was the misfits JEM and the holograms like, yeah. And his team were Jim at these bumbling, bad guys were the misfits that I didn't know where they came from what their motivation was or anything I knew Pika chew and ask for a team just from general, pop culture. But I didn't know how they got together. But this isn't going to be their story. It is Mutubu story. And if you didn't see this movie, and you were watching the TV series. You're not missing a beat because by the end of this movie. All the characters from the TV series. Don't even remember this happened. Right. They fit it in within continuity, wherever they were the one thing you might need to know is that while the label team rocket usually means two similar looking bad guys and a cat. They're actually just part of a larger syndicate and that syndicate is run by Giovanni, and we're introduced to him in these opening scenes after food G realizes that his creation is not going to perform tricks for him. And instead blow up his lab. This man gets off a helicopter and tries to imprison mute to in a mech suit and say, I am your master this Giovanni. This is the baddest of the bad. I don't know. He and the games that you played. Yeah. This guy and team rocket is in the games. And it's not these two you just keep coming across these people that are bad kids, and they're like you're gonna be team rocket 'cause you're going to be part of us. And we're going to take over the Pok Mon stuff and you fight them in Pokemon tournament. If you're good you beat them. And then they go away, you know, but they are a bad influence in the game. I've never gotten to the end of the game where this all might happen. And I never got some you to in that game. Either. All this backstory Mutubu is in the game from whatever. Oh, okay. It sounds a little resident evil you run across the doctor's notes of cloning MU too. I mean, I guess I'm not complaining, and there's not enough backstory for these main characters I'm just expressing what I was kind of expecting coming into this. And being thrown into story this deep with seemingly so much law behind it. Did of make me wonder what came before? Yeah. Having the credit it's treated as opening credit sequence. When we get to ask at a picnic again. This is a ten year old boy on a eighty two episode quest to basically go throw bond Scher's into an arena and see who wins. We just kind of see how the mechanics of that work here in the credits. When some nameless guy comes up and challenges him, and we see all his best. Pokemon. He's not a plant of MU two or anything. Right. It just he just happened to be coming around and U2. is watching all the people who fight Pok Mon. So he sees how good ashes it feels very much like this show. And always there spontaneous random people you run into watch fight happen. It's just what people would expect coming. They would not expect this first ten minutes at all seeing some character. They may have played in a video game. Get thrown into a mech suit burst out and vowed to kill everyone on the planet is not something I've ever seen on the show. But this picnic is every episode of the show to some extent. And again, it sets the ground rules. You throw a ball out outcomes bulbs over outcomes char mandour outcomes Pika chew, and however he does against the guys that your competitor is storing out is the match that's the video game. That's many times the dramatic climax of the TV episodes. It should be what you expect to see in the rest of this film and here. We also we've talked about the little bit have misty and Brock who just formed the triumvirate of ashes posse. They're just friends. You know, he just picked him up along the way on the road and the series. But it's not like they're a team pokey team or anything. And it seems like really only ashes the one trying to be a trainer the other two. They have some pokey mom they come along. But they're not like internment mode or anything bright. They are functional side characters Brock is mostly there to cook the meals and misty not even sure you know, it started that he stole her bicycle. And I just think that she had nothing else to do. That's how it comes across. All right. I'll just follow you for eighty two more episodes. Eighty two again, hundreds of half hour again. I've always seen them first season. I don't know where it goes. After that. I think it also is here to say girls can play Pokemon to the main character is going to be a boy surprisingly making this a boy's property by doing that. But my nieces were into this as well. And so saying girls can play just as well as boys can, and I do think her tomboy nature, while also be fitting any ten year old girl to not really be gendered makes it so that it doesn't really matter what their genders are just three friends with a bunch of little beasts, and I think because there are one hundred fifty different characters in this generation one monster. I do think that there are ones that may be boys might gravitate towards more than and some for girls. I mean, I think you can find whoever you are. And whatever your personality is you could probably find very good point because you're right in today's age. Or even throughout our growing up. Well, we know as far as gender type of properties is basically Disney, Disney has their girls properties. And then they tried to do stuff for boys, but Pokemon from the outset feels like it's just kind of non gender. It's for everyone. It's for kids and people who want to collect. I think it's a good instinct for them to bring this out this way, and they're being watched by a bird in the sky. That's got a camera collar on somebody behind a chair, you might guess it's MU to you may not. I mean, it may be some other supporting character from the show if you haven't seen the show, you might disfigure it something else, but someone is watching them and sending them an invitation to come to his island to I don't know. It's not very specific come on hang out with the best Pokemon players, trainers breeders. There are and team rocket is there as well. Always again. That's a staple of the show is that they're always trying to specifically get Pika chew. They don't wanna be left out of any cap Ning. That's. Going on. So they're going to snag a carrier of the invitation and trash the party as well. They really don't have much to do in this movie. I feel like they could have been left out completely. And it would have tightened the script. Yeah. They could have except you just I can't imagine an episode without there there must be some. But I just they are such a constant. I mean, it would be like Smersh without Garg amount. I mean, they just you need to have that it happened. I agree to as much more compelling and interesting, and that's where you wanna find out because he is essentially creating a biblical flood that is going to wipe out as it did before like in a story straight out of Genesis. It sounds like Noah there was floods. Once legendary storm called the winds of water that washed away just about every Pok Mon except I dunno. Some lip service is paid that tears were able to bring the Pokemon back from extinction. But basically that. Storm is brewing. Again by his magic power. We've seen that. He has incredible command of weather and telekinesis now, the storms are shutting down the harbor, and it's going to make it very hard for anybody to get to his island, which is the point. It's can conjure the weather. We see this very early from his very strange fingertips. And for whatever reason they felt like we needed to really get the idea that he's doing this because they focused on his hand for a good thirty forty five seconds. It was it was really intriguing speaking focusing on his hand, I will say that having watched a few episodes of the TV series and watching this movie this movie seems like it's slightly better animated than the TV series. But this is not nineteen ninety eight nine hundred ninety nine theatrical level animation. The mouth was aren't matching the words their lips are flapping like Muppets the tweeting. You know that word isn't working. Right. You know, it's just you can see the frames they're moving very stuttering. So this film does not look good. Some of that. I'm gonna throw out his cultural. I mean, I just think many Japanese animators go work for Disney and create products that look Americanized. But when you see Japanese animation, there's some obsession with stillness. I think that it's just something maybe in the way that people carry themselves, even but there is sort of a zen calm to the way characters move. And yeah, they're just not a lot of detail. Tale to the way that characters talk and move maybe by design maybe by budget. But I don't know they had a healthy budget for this. You know, there are certain times, I see them using computer graphics. That's where I see them breaking out like, hey, we'll show a door opening and wow, isn't it amazing because it's three d modeling. But by buying large going to stay true, not only to the TV series animation. But just to the spirit of how Japanese anime works. I guess my thing is if this is a TV series, and we've discussed this with X files and we've discussed this with a couple other properties if you are an ongoing TV series. What is it that gives you the balls to go to the big screen? What is it that says you are worthy of paying for what I watch on TV for free? So I'm looking at this. I think the story is a step above I think MU to and the hefty brings is a step above and makes it theatrical worthy. But the look of it in my mind, I of hear both of you. And my thing. Is just the inconsistency in the style the style sheet if you will like an animation like this Ernie property like this is going to need somebody an art director to sit down and say here is the realm in which we can create things and what they should look and feel and act like, and this might just be a bigger problem that I have with Pokemon in general, but I feel like there's ten twenty thirty different artists with different styles of their own that are all kind of doing their own thing. And then they all kind of just get pushed out here. It's like, oh, well, it doesn't really make that much of a difference because there are such diverse differences in each one of these creatures. So to me, it's just kind of a visual miss mash of what's going on on screen, the on just being not that great of anime style or trying to walk that line. I think between anime in American style. And it's not doing either one of them, particularly. Well, yeah. I don't think anyone is going to be made a fan of Pok Mon because of the. Way they've animated it. I don't think that it will win over converts to people that like cartoons. I just don't think that the animation is strong enough and agree as consistent enough scene by seeing. Yeah, it's not movie theatrical level quality that I would expect a pay top dollar for dollar, of course, in nineteen ninety nine different than it is now, but still you're showing that for your kids. I'm sure he gets expensive to bring them there. And they want popcorn and they want drinks. But I think there's exciting. I mean, I do think that once we see the storm and them trying to swim across in stretchers waters. That's always a you see a lot in Japanese animated films. There's always seems to be a sea storm. It's an island country his point of reference to bring up the see I always want to see how that's dramatized. And it's pretty exciting that they got a traverse this rocky waters in waves that may in fact, be drowning all life on earth. I didn't find this to be that exciting. I wanted them to. Get some YouTube again, this whole thing in the water. I was like, it's noise. It goes fast. This whole movie the reason why there's two shorts in front of it for you as audiences. This actually does it even meet the length of what we consider feature. Usually you have to be eighty minutes. This thing sitting at about seventy five with credits and opening company logos and everything so nothing here feels elongated. But this was whatever to me them getting to the island ends up being like this is another test. I don't know if he's flooding the earth. He just only the best trainers were invited. But then those best traders have to be able to come in through the squirrel storm. You didn't hold your breath. I know that's the thing for you and characters go underwater, y'all breath. I don't know that I've ever done it for a cartoon. Yeah. It's a different states. Isn't it? My point is certainly from the cartoons perspective. This would be more intense. It's maybe not blue and Strobe light intent some falling on the ground with epilepsy. But I think that. Fans of the cartoon would be satisfied seeing their heroes gift to the island and get to to who quickly reveals his plot. He's first of all turn this joy and to his henchmen, which is kinda creepy. I mean, she is the character that you go no matter where you go in this world if you walk into one of their Pokemon centers. She is the one that's going to take care of you. And he'll you and she had the game. Well, it is. It's actually I find this to be very amusing. And I didn't get it. When I watched this movie because everybody's like she looks familiar, but then after watching a few episodes of the show every pokey center you go to the same in the eight bit game. They're not gonna waste extra bits. And so the person behind the counter is always the same graphic, no matter where you go. They smartly brought that into the cartoon and made it a little meta. And they all look alike are they clones are they sisters? What's going on? But yes, it's a running gag that. Everyone in the pokey centers. Always looks like this, and it stems from the fact them not having the money or the time to redesign each one to be specific. So out of crude graphics comes continuing joke. This is a character that I think fans of the show would love the idea that she's under the control of this Pokemon. And the fact of this Pok Mon wants to control other poke Mons feels pretty new that's ashes big thing is a Pokemon can't be a Pok Mon trainer. But it isn't very long before combat begins and MU two is there, and they're just going to have Pokemon on Pok Mon tournament where if MU two wins, which he does he's going to take their Pok Mon away from that, man. He has the exact same ones that were in his spirit world, right? He's got the bulbous sewer. And he's got the squirrel. Just like he did when he was with the dead girl. I don't know again if that short had been animated by the time they were making this. I think that came later. But because the movie came to America so late they had what was being made for a sequel again. But yes, I think these are the classic ones because they are what asked tends to break out. You know, they are the earliest monsters that he finds and they are fun in that they're of different types. Some are grass. One's got up flower bulbous, oh were growing out of his back. You know, ones water. So it shows the different varieties. So nice menagerie. Good beginner set if you will. And so the fact that yes, they are going to get cloned and better. I mean are they enhanced versions of them? The fact that they're going to go through some mechanical process and come out stronger and on a fighting line to wipe them out is a little purple Smer scary little ones are going to be a little creeped out to think that there's an evil Pika to that might. Yeah. You have the same question. I did then too. Because this left me a little more confused than I was coming in seeing. This laboratory where he's I guess just straight up cloning them. I thought maybe this was some part of an evolutionary thing. And this might be we get to see how put him on do become to the next level of what they're supposed to be. But it just seems like they were just grumpy versions or Drumcree. Clones that he had made. Well, you know, that's the debate about clones in general. Even in our world is like part of the fear of them is because if it doesn't come from God, maybe it doesn't have a soul. And so they're preying on that idea that the reason why we would fear genetic replication is because it is not natural. It is unnatural by definition. These things should not exist on this earth would not exist on this earth. If man didn't try to play God. So we should worry about that kind of thing. And the idea that you have adopted ganger an evil version of yourself that wants to wipe you out keep in mind. These things aren't just here to battle and have fun. We're going to have genocide. Side Pika CHU is going to die. And so is every other Pok Mon trainer and their Pokemon. So that MU to can just recede the world with Evelyn copies that are better. And his mind. He is better. He is more enhanced he can do more. And that is going to be a challenge for the real knew who we should mention has been floating around in the background this whole time blinking in and out of the seems more with team rocket than anything else. Team. Rocket is stocking ash and MU is stalking team rocket? But this is really where it gets interesting to me is like Mutubu is like this, Malcolm X type person where I know there's eugenics involve, but he wants to kill all the humans, and he wants to kill all the local Tom Pok Mon that enable them. Yes. Exactly. He does not see their loyalty. He does not see them as in slave and needing to be free. Let's break their chains. And you'll come worked for me. It doesn't make an appeal to them. I'm going to take a follicle of your hair running through the machine, and then I can just kill you. Because I have the best of you and can enhance it. That's pretty intense. I don't know. The trains were was movie. Remember, they all start wiping out all the autobahns. I wonder if there's some kids of the nineties who have similar paying Zayed's and confrontation the reason why it doesn't feel as scary to me is because they don't get Pika chew. They have this whole chase scene where this ball is trying to grab him and he runs up a staircase. And if they got him and threw him in the machine, and we saw evil Pika chew and thought they had one that would be very upsetting to think about. But in fact, act never lets him go into the machine, and they're able to free all the ones that get caught in the balls pretty easily. So they don't prey upon the nightmarish -ness of the scenario. It's really only as an adult where I'm thinking about how unsettling it would be and the transfers actually killed those robots. Whereas here they're just threatening to in fact, I find it a double take that view to was like I'm going to kill all of you. And then he immediately turns around I'm going to put them all in pokey balls, and they're black Poku balls, you know, they're evil, but as. Like, he didn't do the murderous nece that he was talking about just three minutes before. And they're lining up. We're now in this arena. Again, they try to break out some computer graphics to make it look expansive not just that they break out a lightsaber sound when the lights turn on the arena. It's it's a sped up Lucasfilm lightsaber sound. I know that anywhere. I would catch you to catch that the thing that I wondered is I've noticed that this soundtrack. I think we're at some of the money for the budget went is that they have real legit Popstars. I'm like is that really Britney? Yeah. It really is Britney there's really Christina Aguilera. I'm like is that Lenny Kravitz that they're playing when we're seeing this massive tax of original Pok Mon versus clone. Pok Mon and you're hearing this sad rock song about brothers attacking brothers. It is blessed union of souls. Remember them. What? Credit Pallone clone. Like, you're gonna clone Olympic gone to jail. Meanwhile, my brain is trying to wrap around why new to has gone to the trouble of his whole ideas. Whole plan is world at Islay and starting over. Why is he luring them into a fight in a stadium that he's made with chalk outlines and a court and stadium seating? And light. What could be on the beach? I don't understand like why they need to be a stadium or why he needed a stadium. I don't think he built this. This is the lab where he was created. He started by destroying it. And then after the Vanni thing he went back there. That's why he has the cloning vats and everything so that could have been there from when the last scientists were doing all of their cloning. Okay. I maybe I just gave him powers beyond what they showed. Maybe I just assumed that he had recreated all this stuff with his knowledge. It's a little confusing. The first time I watched this. I did just think this was his layer. He just had this machinery. But the second time I'm like, oh, those arms. Tried to stop him in the beginning. Try to stop at later. It's the same lab equipment. I think it's only been a month because it's mentioned that nurse joy has been missing for a month. So I think he's been putting this whole plan together. Whatever he's done to this lab. Yeah. He started with something. And he's tweaked it I do think he'd made it a little bit more of a Pokemon game. Maybe by making it this arena. But I think he thinks that there's no way the clones aren't going to take every original. And it is fairly matched up. He could chew is not gonna fight some other kind of Pok Mon its Pika chew versus Pika chew and Bubba Zora versus Boba Zoar. And and so on right down to MU versus Mutubu. And. Yeah, this is where MU comes out from the shadows and tries to appeal to mute better nature, and it just ends up being another fight. I don't like you can. I just say there's something. Yeah. He's to rodent like, and it just feels like, maybe it's just my dirty mind. But like new just like a. Castrated version of YouTube because when you see new to like his midsection is bogus like he has these giant testicles? And so new just feels like rated version of the bad guy. That's just not a good fight to set up. When you're like, you're the castrated version of the thing we're going to fight, except it's actually they took the peaceful kind kitten ish MU and turned it into the balls EMU to. Yeah. I mean, I understand I just again because I do wanna see fighting and presume that that is what the substance what we've been building to where now like fifty minutes into this seventy minute movie time to get down and Throwdown. And this fight just is not one that I want to see and every other fight is kinda get thrown. We're going to see Pika chew and meow. Be the ones to really say. I'm Gandhi, and you're going to slap me, and I'm not going to slap you I think the expression that they say that my mouth drops agape Pok Mon aren't meant to fight. Yes. I mean because the games into every episode. I saw like you're gonna tell me this. It's like the Audubon arguing for like carbon emissions that you want. The bus. What are you talking about the way these is they're not to not like this? So they're meant to like, okay. I the way I viewed it is then Pokemon turnament are like karate matches. So you're supposed to get in the ring with the wrath and gandules can go up against Johnny. But you're not supposed to have Johnny and the skeleton outfit, breaking Daniel San's kneecap outside the school dance. Still troublesome though. I mean that analogy is still troublesome because. Yeah, you can't sweep the leg. Kick a dude in the face like what are the rules in this Pok amount fighting world, and I get it this is aimed at a younger audience. So let's just put a big button on it. So that it's not going to go over anyone's head. How can I trust you? You was born different. Now. I mean, whether it's the current immigration, discussion, racism or homosexuality. This is now a big thing of acceptance. And that's what it's going to be for the rest of it. I mean, the beauty to big epiphany is the circumstances of one's birth are relevant. It's what you do with that life that determines who you are. And that things well that's not necessarily true because you could be born in negatively impacted socioeconomic scenario, but you know, for cartoon that's pretty deep. Yeah. You gotta have a moral, and it does feel a little bit like you'll get a car and you'll get a car. I mean, it's very Oprah speak. What they turn to the idea that we don't wanna fight and we don't want to see the differences as things to attack. I mean, that's not true playing the game. I can't imagine that that wouldn't be the appeal of the game of Ken my little, dude. Take on your dude. And what is that fight going to look like, but if you have impressionable children that are going to walk out of this theater and mimic the horse play that they saw on screen ending this big fight by saying don't fight is probably why. We don't want more kids going to the hospital after but let's face it, the fighting year is so stylized they suit watering each other. They should bubbles at each other. And when they are doing punches and lightning strikes. It's super anime style like voltron level everything in the back. Just turns one color, and they're like frozen pose with the moving lines around them. This is so non realistic violence that kids would have trouble doing anything more than pants rain. And even at that. I'm not seeing any fighting moves, really. I mean, it's not like the Power Rangers. Where parents were like, oh, jeez. My kids are out in the backyard hitting each other with sticks and Crotty chopping each other. This is like well, kids, don't go home and try to float around and shoot lightning at each other. Yeah. The closest you get as Pika chew to slapping peak. It's you across the face. And that's that's realistic. As it gets and peak itchy one is just gonna turn the other cheek like Jesus, and like Jesus we'd need to have a martyr. And in this case, we gotta give the human something to do. I mean, this really has not been a movie about ash. You guys have wondered his back story. And this is not the movie to elaborate on that. Go watch the first five episodes of the cartoon, you're gonna learn a lot more about him than anything that this movie is going to share. But he is going to sacrifice his life by coming between the laser blast of mew mew to and turning the carbonates. I don't like they don't want to say dead. So they just have him colorless lying on the ground like a stone statute, and it will be tears the same ones that I guess Elliott revived with to make floating in a light show. I mean, it's it's quite spectacular. It was a line from the beginning. The origin immu too short that like Pokemon tears ca generate life or something. And so it's because MU to was crying at the depth of the little girl that he got life. And now here they're going to have all these pokey tears resurrect ash who. Yeah, according to the Wikki description, he was merely petrified. But come on. He seems kinda strange in this and off tone for the movie that has dealt with death and destruction to kind of cut this short. Why not make it so asked was temporarily dead. But I mean, petrified dead. Whatever I mean, it's either one or the other. It's not that big of a deal. But yeah, the tier seeing really they're really going for get close ups of every different Pok Amman crying. And even that's not enough it takes special special tears from Pika chew to finally bring him back mentioned in the legend that that was what stopped that storm long ago when almost all the Pokemon died and. It's something for everyone to do. If you want all the Pokemon to participate equally in the fact that they can all throw in a few tears and revive the boy clear. The storm clouds, and you've now have changed the heart of our villain. There are no villains anymore. Mutubu understands. True power is that birth is relevant. And so the only question is how are we going to get back into the show where they are going to fight in the answer is an mesia Emmys for you, and for you, and for everyone that's going to be on the show next week because you're gonna fight and I don't want you to be passed. I can see where that would be a big sticking point for somebody who who has been a fan of Pok Mon and has invested time and energy into games cards. The shows to have this albeit dream essentially for me personally. It didn't affect me at all. It's like, okay, whatever. But that's kind of a slap in the face. Isn't it like everything you just witnessed doesn't matter? Nobody learns that nobody grows from it. It's not an experience. I love it. When movies are all at dream or something. So satisfying to think it was all a waste of time. But better than a dream. We still have MU two's are here. Mu to has changed. Even if the others don't remember it and YouTube is who I'm connecting to in this movie. So that mute to has this change of heart and comes around they have made him at Dennis surprisingly good job of doing this of making him a sympathetic villain. He wants genocide and yet because again of that words short and everything else. I. I don't hate him at the see him come around at the end and have this epiphany is satisfying. Even if all the other characters who didn't even really matter except as an instrument to help you to learn the lesson just forget it ever happened. But we forget it ever happened. Justin, Stewart do you choose recommend or not recommend this whole series is going to be hard to recommend or not recommend. I mean, are you a fan of Pokemon already? And are you going back and seeing if your childhood was ally? Or is it something you're hoping still held some the Stahl Jeff or you or you an adult like me who's always kind of known Pokemon. It's been around, but never really checked it out much. So it's very much depend on your own personal circumstances where you come down on a movie like this for me. This is my introduction to the animation. Like, I said up front I've played Pokemon go a little bit. I have a son who was ripe for this. Like he had some of the games. He had some of the toys he had the cards. But it never struck me. I never liked the style of it. It felt very much like a hobby more than entertainment to me. So it's just kind of something that's always been there never really grabbed me so coming into this. I was kinda hoping for some history, I was kind of hoping to get sucked into this lore. But I feel like this isn't the movie to do that for. So if you're like me, and you want to find out where ash comes from, and why Pika chooses buddy, this is obviously not the place to start. This is a confusing jumping off point for people who are ready immersed in this world and are looking forward to seeing you to for the first time onto extreme whatever that means. So if I'm looking at this just as entertainment as a movie, I'm glad it was short. It was pretty breezy. It wasn't a -fensive. It's pretty wrote. You know, there's things in here that I suppose we talked about can be a good lesson. Which is fighting isn't always the answer. Let's get along. But at the end of the day, this is nothing I feel like I need to come back to especially since it doesn't. Even stick to its own lore. Where this is going to be something that you need to know about going forward with the series. It just really kind of puts me on that teetering side of it's not recommend because it's not necessary Stewart now, you know, I'm the super fan. So I love it. All it's terrific. I decided to go more poetic route. I decided I'm going to give my summation as haiku if you know, the Japanese poa, art form five syllables seven syllable, five syllable, brief thoughts to just sort of encapsulate everything that I feel thinking about this first movie. So a clone of immu will always appear tiny next to Akira forever resent, the fact that you are a copy of arrogant, God, those with the balls may see themselves as masters yet cannot score till the purpose of life is to train all the monsters, but never allow war a green arrow glows only for those who dream of. Pokemon slavery. Thank you. I think it really does. I need a little clarification. I green arrow glows Arnie. Yes. But only for certain people. Yes, I'd say red, and for me, I'm actually surprised, you know, I honestly just figured we got five of these animated things, and I figured each of them would be more torturous than the last and five rid EROs. I thought I was going to be longing for the heady days of children or the corn. But no they had stuff in here that actually appealed to me not me pretending to be a child or anything else. The Mutubu stuff was surprisingly involving I actually wondered how that would end is something that I would've thought my life was empty if I hadn't seen. No. But did I actually enjoy watching it yet did so yeah, I'm actually gonna give it a recommended? If this is what it means to be a Pokemon movie. It is so much better. Than what I saw the Pok Mon TV series. I'm optimistic about the next five weeks. Well, let me tell you. Then there is a sequel, and it is one that we will not be covering because it is a one hour. Non theater TV episode that came out in the third season. I did watch it it's called byu returns. And basically it's going to wrap up everything that was left and bigamous when MU to floated away with his clones. And you wanted to know with burning passion, what was he going to do? He's going to go soak in a mountain that is very inhospitable to life that has really changing climate that no human can approach and he's filled with self hatred. He's brooding that do. Clones have the right to share the air with those that were born in this world. And so I'm thinking he might be opening vein here and both ask and team rocket through complete coincidence. Discover this mountain at the same time, and there's another big battle Giovanni comes down to use his high tech. Back and try and get him back. It does have more exciting action, then this movie, but ultimately, it is less satisfying. It feels like it has less fresh Mutubu is kind of more of a pill and this time he dies instead of ash. He's going to be the one that gets aft, and they have this magical lake that brings them rather than cry. Because no one's feeling anything there Strom in the water for ten seconds. And he's fine. I don't think I need to see that. I think I've happy with MU to just flying off to consider the meaning of life. Yeah. I wish he would give 'em nesia. I don't need new to returns. But it's out there if you just wanna button on what might have happened. It's just funny because I just look at this. And you know, the payroll that kept coming to my mind is Star Trek the motion picture and house Spock had that mind meld with Vija and Vija was having this existential crisis. And is this all I am is there. Nothing more at to see that done here in a farmer Ekka. Comical way than was ever done in Star Trek, the motion picture, I was happily surprised there is a olive branch to people that want to think about the deep themes of science fiction, if you like science fiction, I don't know that it's four you. But their stuff here that you will at least like considering and I do think that. Yeah. If you like Saifi consider being a donor as well.

55:48 min | 1 year ago

Episode 25: Our Very Special 25th Episode!

"Hey, everybody. Welcome to episode. Twenty five of the never growing up podcast. A Disney parks podcast for adults, I can't believe it is episode twenty five so Brady and I decided that instead of going over our daily news that we normally go through with you guys. We thought we talk a little bit about each other kind of our favorite moments of the past twenty five episodes, and some of our Disney parks, favorite tips. Restaurants, were rights, what have you. It's going to be a super fun episode. It's very special episode, and we're so excited to share with you. We're being one bit. Leave back. We actually just recorded upset twenty four but we back. Right. Greedy. Tell us why we just record. We're also recording upset twenty five today, Joe bitch going to DisneyWorld. Like I won the Super Bowl except for far less extravagant of a trip. I'm sure it's like kind of extre. Hey, they go to DisneyWorld after they win the Super Bowl does. What I'm saying they go to this recall, after they wouldn't go to Disney after the Super Bowl, but I have like millions of dollars less money than they do. So it's all like the WalMart brand of their trip. I am the great. I am the great value Tom Brady. That's okay. That's okay. You're way better than time. Hey, Tom Brady. So it's your way better we've talked about this. I hate like. But yeah, guys. So it we're celebrating episode twenty five year so thankful to have all of you enter lies. So before we start chitchatting. My name is Anne at W W collective on Instagram, Twitter and my fabulous. Co host at episode. Twenty five is hard as I'm Brady mccleary, also known to you, as Brady Cam on Instagram yield. Yeah. So I made a drink. Did you then? But for I mean, I had a drink last episode and I made a drink for this episode, and I use my cranberry juice, and I let the top off from a while ago from last week's episode and I don't know if that's like a little bit of mold in there. But I'm drinking that cannot be fresh. It's not. But it's the only juice I had. So I'm just kind of picking it out. Oh, god. That is so gross. I didn't get a refill between our episodes because Nick left for work event, and I feel like going up stairs. So. There early bottles of booze around me. I mean it just didn't feel like drinking straight up vodka. But. Was it that we took shots? God. I don't know. Maybe I wanna say maybe twenty or nineteen I dunno was a teen years. It was in the title of the episode so we did do shots. I mean I could technically do a shot, but then I had to get up. And probably not gonna finish this drink. I shouldn't have looked in. I just kept going, okay. Okay. So. So guys, he wanted to have a very special episode with you, since it is a milestone episode episode twenty five and since Brady is going to be DisneyWorld next week. We are recording. Today's up says if you heard episode twenty four we actually record the same day, but we wanted to take just kind of a special episode to talk about the podcast. What our favorite moments have been where we kinda see it going. And it also just sharing with you. Some of our favorites with images, ni parks, and we just that'd be a nice little break in a nice little a tribute to our past twenty minutes. Yeah, that's perfect this beautiful beautiful. Speed falls could be a nice little Swede episode. So. Bucket. Ruse go up. So we're just gonna go kind of back and forth. We just want to check in with each other make sure that you know insane JD the Denver favorites. And, and help you guys out if you're planning your next Disney vacation, whether it is, just as a Dulce like reading idea, or if you are happening to bring your family, just so, you know, we do a lot of drinking just say, no. But we both have gone with family with kids. So we, we are well-versed in either direction of your vacation you wanna go. So if you find some kind of, like I dunno like Uber, babysitters or whatever, you know, hey, I need a kid sitter. That'd be a good idea. And also really creepy. But, like also, like, like, hey, I need a babysitter now than somebody comes like door. The Disney parks to do like a babysitting area. I know they do it on the cruises. Now still, but they used to do it with everyone like in the in the, the whole the resorts, but I don't think they do it anymore. Well, I know the water part, I work, that was attached to like a main theme park is called kings island in Ohio. Love. We kinda had a babysitting thing. But really, it was like parents, quote, unquote. Lost their kid, then like the lifeguard supervisors me had. We literally, we call them duck tales because we had luck around than a line of kids behind us would be following us looking for their parents just like walk around until people that's mine, then pick them up like me we're off for the rest of the day, like so let's start off kind of NF. You guys have listened to. If you've been a loyalist inter since episode one for seven Cape, Leila, snaps on what, you know, what's so weird episode one hit, like, well over two hundred downloads, and I'm like, why? I haven't even listened to episode one since it aired scared. Yeah. Those were. So thank you guys for, for doing that even though the audio was garbage. That's probably why known will suit anymore, but. We, we did cut talk a little bit about ourselves. And you know why were part of the dizzy community and kind of how this all got together, but we wanted to with this landmark kinda reiterate what our vision is, and kind of go from there. So what I wanted to ask you ready as why why did you join the Disney community in social media? Are doing the Disney community because it was just kind of a natural fit. It's something I've always been kind of doing anyway, like, obviously, I wasn't I didn't have a Disney grant if you will. Excuse me. But when I went to Disney took a lot of pictures in. I know I've always been going to Disney if I discovered that there was a, an niece of Disney, Instagram IRS. I said, you know what? Why not give that a try here? It wasn't in hopes to get like thirty thousand likes or anything like that. That would be nice. So go back through guys in like all my stuff, but it was more of like. I don't know. I think I'm super finding original and interesting. So I thought maybe people would like to see that they have somebody to relate to, you know, because obviously, we all have kind of like somebody who's Instagram. We kinda modeled hours after like. Oh, so this is how they did that kind of set mine up this way. So or I'm gonna go in this direction. And so I'm hoping to kind of be the direction. Somebody wants to go in the future. In kind of I don't want to say like a role model but like somebody that somebody can come to. In fact, as we know if you listening to our previous podcasts, I'm in a same sex marriage and through my journey. I'm not shy about that at all. Like I got the ears we go hold hands. It's like the one DisneyWorld is the one place feel safe doing that. Right. In what I'm getting at is in all this. I've actually had people message me saying, like, hey, you've given me a lot of strength in courage. I'm coming out to my family next month and I just wanted you to know it's because I see how great you are in how well off. You are that in how unapologetic you are. I wanna feel the same confidence to in like that is something especially in today's world where we're back in nineteen forty two. That makes me so happy to hear because with all the scary stuff that's happening. And PS congratulations Taiwan for allowing same sex marriages now. Yeah. Asian country. Yeah. I'm just glad that. I don't wanna be like the idea have some people are using. Oh, hey, this is my friend Brady. He's gay. I'm more than just gay. And I hope people see that, too, in my social media, but I want them to know that. It's okay to be gay like be you and be the, the realist. You like, don't worry about what other people think to extent, even and I'm guilty of that, too. I'm very self conscious, but I'm just glad that I have this platform is kinda getting too. That's why doing it like I want people to see me, and I want people to relate to me. Think I'm cool in relatable, you're a good time who? He's like good time on that. I love that. And I totally understand it. Obviously, that's one of the main reasons why love Disney, too, because they are they have always well, at least for, you know, since I've been regularly disease, always been so welcoming to any community. And it's it's amazing. So I love that we talked about that in one of our episodes were the thirteen years in a row. They won the equality standard laid the highest rating that they could possibly get that you got a business could possibly get, so it's not just us saying that guys like it's, it's, it's relax its actual really bags where bringing the receipts. We are bringing the receipts every teatime everybody sip sip on that T everybody. But yet, so that's why I want to do. That's what brought me to the DisneyWorld. What, what made you decide? Like, because I know just like me, you had an Instagram going. What means you go towards the Disney Graham. I'm so I've always been a big follower of a lot of Noni them like the Disney influencers more so just like just dizzy accounts and things of Disney like the happenings of Disney. Like what was going on? I always try to keep to the pulse of Disney and honestly, it's not a great story like yours. But like one of the main reasons why started my restore is a great story. I know but maybe this inspires someone who gets like shit like I used to, but, like peop- people, including my husband used to get so annoyed that I would post like a Jillian. Disney pictures on Instagram or Facebook, whenever we would go Disney and we go to Disney progressively, for living in Ohio, so. That was like, how did the main reason that I was on vacation with a group of friends this past July? And we were you just hang out, and they're like, why don't you just do this low, and she started blog and why don't you start like just, you know really kinda going for the Disney Instagram style. It, it was even well before I did like any real research into, like, what the Disney Instagram community men's. And I started my blog WW w collective, which really now is not so much of a blog, I've kinda turned it more until, like a mini blog on Instagram. And that's purely just because I have a very busy job and I can't dedicate the time to like a full-time blog. So I've turned into more of like a mini blog and slash brand. I guess you could say. Early on Instagram, and I've just found such a Greek community because I really didn't have the connection. I mean like everyone like says, like, oh yeah I love Disney blah, blah, but no one could go, like full nerd. I didn't really have anyone who had a full nerd doesn with, and now I have an entire community and obviously, I have, you know Brady. I have you. And I also like I also I always listen to podcasts, like, oh, back in two thousand eight or whatever when Luma jello kinda I started his podcast. I'm real listening to when I first started my first job with my current company that I'm with. I mean, I was kind of an early adopter of podcasters in general, not just Disney so that was something I always wanted to get into. So it just worked out so, well, that you and I clicked, and we were able to create this together. So the Esme a story of a story. So what has been your favorite episode that we have that we've done so far? Oh. I'm going to see a two parter answer, I'm gonna have to favorite episodes for two different reasons. My, my first favorite episode was our first episode because. If he is go back and listen to our first episode, the sound quality is not there. I mean it's rough. But what a lot of people don't know is that's mine in. That's, that's our first conversation that we've had using our voices easier voices. Yeah. We've, we've chatted, you know, on, on Instagram in, like Drake messaging back and forth. And like we had that we have that collaborative Instagram collective camp together. Through that we decided to like, we chatted. Why don't we just do it? Let's, let's just do it. We didn't have the greatest microphones. We were just using our headsets and we. We were determined to make it work. As far logistically make it work. But the fact that we had never had a real conversation, and we were able to speak to each other for an hour over our, our love for Disney and that blossomed into what we are now. Like I we talk every day, maybe not over the phone every day. But we chat far more than we than we did even and we've become really good friends. And I think that's so cool that it started. You know, like Disney it all started with a mouse, ours. All started with shitty sound quality. And I think that's, that's my, my first episode is my favorite episode is the first episode because it was the seed of, you know, then, you know, Mewa are not mwana, sorry move on, you know, a flower that blooms in diversity. You know, we didn't have great sound quality in now we have over two thousand five hundred hundred downloads in our first twenty three episodes starting. That's a pretty good mile mile marker. My, my second episode had to be that one that we can't remember the number. But the one that we did shots because. Says in front of me, and we were so relaxed and more teen that was up. I news upside forcing I wanted to say, but I wasn't sure if is absurd fourteen or fifteen but episode fourteen was definitely my, my next favorite because I think we just had a blast religious taken shots. It is having a good time. And I think that's my second favorite one. Trying to think like what I we obviously we've twenty five. So it's hard to it's Hodge. Choose the children. But I did. So quick. What's yours? It's any episode where we followed our agenda. There's only one episode with you. There's only one where we didn't follow in Jeddah. But. So it's so hard for me to choose. And the strange thing is, is that I think by favorite episodes are the ones where we really started to get sidetracked. And I think that started because I think it like proves are ease of conversation, and I think it, it, we were talking about this earlier. I think what I love the most about our podcast versus some of some of the and while I listen to a ton of Disney podcast, a lot of polyester general. I love our authenticity. Where you in. Just are kind of a mess. But it seems to resonate people. And, and I think what's so great is the authentic that we bring in terms of just ourselves as people and being able to bring that, that every week like I just like where you were you like dropped a bomb about, like fast passes. Oh, yeah. You're like what? Or when I found that you or the original person that invented Oku. Oh, in real life, y'all Cardini, so. But it was is just like it's those moments where yes, we do. Get sidetracked. I'm sure they're probably noisy people because they wanna hear all of the Disney hot gas. But, like, honestly, it's just it, it makes doing this the best part of my week. So it's so much fun. It's so fun. We have such a great time guys. I just wish we could get the whole video thing down. So people could see, like but at the same time like again, I'm sitting under that I haven't splits. Yeah. Although I do have make today because I have meetings earlier. So I actually do look at human being. But so, so what's, what's your vision, it for the like, what you see happening in the next years, though? Honestly, it's not even really a vision of what I want to see or anything like that for me. It's more of a prediction like we have so much fun doing this. And, and like you just explained we have such a natural flow about our show, like, yeah, we have our agenda. Yes, we get sidetracked. But we still cover everything that we want to talk about and everything that we said, we're gonna talk about every now and again when we were doing the Broadway series, we were able to, to to get to it. But those were just like odd weeks that had a lot of news coming out. It has like, and we talked about that last episode. There has been so much going on in the last couple of months. And I think it's all gearing up towards. Mickey's secret park their opening. Listen guys for that. But my my, my prediction is, I think we are we have what it takes to attract a lot of attention? And I, I don't think it's going to be obviously in the next ten episodes. But I think we. I can see us sitting at a park and the new whatever the new galaxies edge type opening is gonna be we're sitting there at a little desk, just talking to each other about the people that are coming by, and we're at the parks, as you know, Disney PR discussing the event, I can see that even if it's like a Akkad even see us doing red carpet. Could you imagine that? I would try like never growing up dizzy parks podcast for adults covers the red carpet for parts of the Caribbean. Forty-six like. Happen. So I totally see that. I think people the fact that people message us when we don't put out an episode for the week if you have a business trip where I had that surgery or whatever happened people messages like, hey, what's going on? Where's my hips owed, you know? And I don't think if we didn't have what it takes to be a part of that in like, who else is doing that. Is there anybody on the run carpets Disney, are you listening? I'm giving you the free trying to tell you try to tell you. Oh, god. I could just see it. We're just sitting there basically like. Pitch perfect. Yes, the answers for, like the guy and the girl announcers, just just bickering back and forth talking about what's happening on the stage in that's us describing, ironman, forty two like. I think I can see that. That's my prediction. Yeah. I love I, quote unquote Z seeing where the show is going answering question that would be that would be so amazing. And I love I love when our show is going. And I love that, you know, we're really trying to diversify and I'm hoping we have more time now to work with other podcasters. In other people, the Disney community, I think it's hard, too, because you, and I both have fulltime jobs, and it's hard for us to kinda like get prepared to bring other people on. And I'm hoping that in the future, we have more time to do that working with Disney influencers work. I mean obviously the goal is to, to work with Disney itself, and, and get to that level. But I, I hope you guys like what we're doing more looking at dizzy from a different angle from the minority, you know, although I think it's starting to really grow as people going who. Have kids millennials now as we age or having less children? So I think it's we're just in a really cool niche niche, whatever. And I'm just so excited to, to see everything girl from here. But let's talk a little bit about our favorite parks stuff. So hopefully, this guy's held this helps you guys when you're planning, your vacation coming up the next year some of favorites, especially if you are going with just the two of you or just a group who are a group of a grownups of the grown ass of the grown as folk. Favorite? Like a must do like what what's your favorite part tip? Like went like just like it could be about anything. Like what is like the one piece of information that you've gotten where you're just like this change the way? I vacation at Disney. Well, you can't do it anymore because they've changed the way you get child passes. But what man, I used to do is, we'd go up and say that we have a kid that sue scared to ride the ride get a child pass. If then go back through all you got the buddies. Yep. So that's not that wasn't me. But, but they've made it a lot harder to get those like basically have to show them your child in order for that to happen anymore. So now I would say my favorite tip is. That's a tough one. Oh, even if it's gonna rain that day, just go because, yes, obviously, a lot of the attendance at the parks are people with children, and they don't want their kids to catch a cold. So they they go away for a little bit in Florida. It's gonna rain often on in this works California when it does rain there, too. But it's gonna pass the Pasha's are seven bucks, like get upon show in hang out, especially the animal kingdom, when it's raining makes me live like I read a rush because it just like adds to the ambiance. And like the crowds die down a little bit. So you can run off to some of the rides that are usually crowded. But I mean that, that's my biggest if it's raining. Stay put it's gonna pass. Yeah. I think I think that's a really, really good point. Because I mean as long as you could stand it, there's a point where yes in the summer. Sometimes you get these crazy, downpours, or even sometimes where it's just like annoying. But, you know, watch the weather just kind of know what's going to happen. Pack appropriately. Right. If like. Like, if it's pouring in your cotton, it, you're already wet like you're not gonna get less wet. So you might as well just like let it happen because we all know I will wear. I'm the kind of percent will wear my poncho on splash mountain. I have photos of it, because I don't like to get a little wet if I'm gonna get I gotta get. So it's like it's gotta be pouring in get wet. But even I can just like let my my, my we've down and what it happened. Because I don't know it just adds a whole element in, like rainy day, Disney's better than a sunny day at home. It's true. It's true. Trying to think what my favorite particip- is been. I think what's really what has changed. I think Nick and I going because it's usually just us. There are times we go with. I ain't even if it's just me and one of my, my friends. So I think what, what is really changed? And this is something that we just started maybe recently doing in the past five years in. It's amazing that it took us. This long is using the single writer. Because it's so basic. But like you guys if you're just going as a dull tes. Get on the single ride at all. You don't have to sit together because lines so much quicker. I'm talking like TASR track. I'm talking Soren. I think he can do single rider, to, like, I mean, a lot of the big, big rides up space mountain at even. Oh, yeah. Everest and yeah, oh, that's a really great point. Because when we were there about a month ago. We did have a fast pass forever, but we wanted to get dizzy springs earlier, because we had, we had brunch at Weinberg George in so Nick or. Exactly. So he took cigarette line got through way faster. And you guys just if you're going, it's probably my number one tip is utilize. You do not sit together. Unless they're even did that for protest track. Yeah. Go on it. But the line was ridiculous in like let's just do this on our team. Yeah, I wish they had single writer for like frozen. What else they wish they had single writer for, they don't have it for mine train either, which is annoying. I don't know. Why aren't drain ride is kind of annoying Binion. It's a whole thing in flight a passage. They don't have single writer, which is also dumb. So here we are they need to make reservations surf Asians. I'm hoping it like lessons. Now, if the galaxy's edge of aiding soon, 'cause is, is nonsense. Get heart palpitations every time, I think, galaxy's edge to be honest. It's on. So what is your favorite resort in? Why? Disneyland or Disney World. Can it be one? I've never stayed in. Yeah. Then the beach resorts. Oh, nice on the board wide, because I wait which one the beach club or the boardwalk, but that's on the boardwalk right like you from it. Yeah, it's a cross as as area the same area. That's, that's my favorite. Because I love it so much. All of those would be kinda my favorite. She's the Epcot resorts general resorts in general. I mean, technically the Caribbean beaches, a cut resort, and it's still not got that kind of access. So it wasn't accessible cigarette. The ones that are accessible from that back entryway, arm ones that I would like that. I wanna go to like I, I would love to be able to walk back to my resort after data. I really want to do more walking because, you know, me, I'm a all day kinda guy. But I just I would love to stay in those, that's, like my dream place to stay. It's them because I do not so much in hopefully one day, I'll be able to stay there with an Epcot view. It's, it's I've been very lucky to stay at all the Epcot resorts, and it's hard for me. So my ultimate favorite resort is grand Floridian, because it's just it's the flagship dizzy resort. It's stunning. I mean it's our favorite place to walk around at night. There's something so peaceful beautiful about it, it, you know, especially going as a dull Disney resorts can be pretty wild. But you know, there's something there's something very calming about the grand flurry, and it's just absolutely absolute- stunning. And so that's a magic kingdom resort. It's a monorails or but it's so hard because we don't stay grandfathered in a lot because it sells out a lot. It none, as I say, sells it sells out like the, the normal price rooms, like usually a lot of times. It's bad. Because naked I just book. To close in advance. So by the time I go there, it's like seven hundred dollars for room and I'm like, I'm not. But so I mean obviously our favorite park. My husband and I and my friends is what I mean. A lot of it's just because we older and we like to go partying cut are the resorts. And so my second favorite in. I probably in terms of the resorts is is the yacht club. So I actually prefer yacht as opposed to beach it has one of my favorite lounges in there. It's nice. The pool is obviously the best pull on Disney property. A storm is long bay. Yeah, it's just unbelievable the pool there and don't even try and sneak in that will because you have to get another armband a wristband to go into the pool. So they have to scan your magic band to confirm that. You're staying at at Yang beach. And then they give you another wristband. So. It's real strict, but it's nice. There's a sand bottom area, and that's really awesome. It's just it's just awesome. So when you say that's where I mean, I've stated beach to just like y'all better personally. I like the seeming better. But it's it's awesome. I love it. But either one of those either one of the rate, and honestly, like I've always wanted to state animal Qena, but, like I don't wanna stay that far out. Like I'm very in. That's like the all stars are nice and cheap. But their way that they're right up the road from animal kingdom, which is kind of annoying. So I wish I wish that we'd do a value in each area. That would be nice which I guess I I get why they don't. But then it also kind of. Kind of makes you think. Okay. So do they think that animal kingdom is their value like? I don't I don't think so. I would think that's probably one of the most expensive ones with all the theme ING and whatnot. So it's so intense or is there is there, a moderate magic kingdom resort? Not. So I guess you consider wilder are now what are for wilderness would be considered moderate, there's the new nature one that's going to open like in the next year or so I think that'll still be considered deluxe, though. Ord stevie. See, I don't think it's going to be moderate, though. Well, I'm a need. A mini them to have value in each area would be nice that would be great because then everyone can experience what it's like to stay you know, so close to the magic kingdom. I mean there is moderate at Epcot. There's cribbing beach, which now it will be acceptable by the skyline skyline her. But yeah, no I totally I totally get your coming from. Shall see Disney. Once again, I'm telling ya. I'm giving you the keys, higher ER and talk on your on. Your red carpets in make dire resorts in each section. Give me be successful. So what do you always pack? When you're getting in this is coming up for you, very soon. What do you always pack when you are going on a Disney vacation? Okay. Let's see what do I always pack. I definitely always pack my portable charger. Yes. And I pack. I'm just trying to get something sprinkle fill like. Oh, yeah. And I only wear sunscreen every now in, in your so fair. You shouldn't be doing that. But I'm part Mexican so I'm half Italian at night. Gert show really burn, but still. Yeah. Matt's fair, Matt needs some sunscreen here. I don't know. I pack might might my battery pack. And. My. Over recently might like the like the golden powder for, for after the parks, just shower sprinkled Inc. All that over the place than. Call it a night. Yeah. So I agree with you. And I think that's probably like, what especially these days like, if you're going, and people, especially Instagram, IRS, or people who just post a lot in social media are taking a lot of pictures. You have to bring a portable battery might use is the Jack ry. So may Jack rate, but like it's portable battery I've couple of them, and then you which brand do you use use the Ravs power? Or the power pack is Scott. Got like four USB ports on the top. But, like, I, it'll charge my charged when I had my iphone seven, plus it, it charged it four times from zero to hundred in a day and still had power. Yeah. I trust it. It's one that I know that I'm, I'm gonna have for a while in. I love it. I even talked about it a lot during my metro August about it. A lot is just it really just would would charge it quick. So you that seventy might might go to buy go-to rand night. Have that ready to go for this, this coming trip? Because now I have to take a thousand Gillian trillion pictures. Lost all mine. So, and I also do a lot of withing, like I do I go are not lighting. But I do lot of stories when I'm there and constantly having to do that takes a lot of battery this time I might hop onto the wifi. I don't typically like to do that, because anybody can sneak into your phone, but it will also help not kill my battery because it won't be searching. Yeah. And the WI fi in DisneyWorld is, I mean, the WI fi Disneyland is like not. It's like they say there's a WI fi is garbage. Don't use it, but the wifi DisneyWorld, it's so funny like a Sita's we pop in there like for our first day at the parks, whatever just like recognizes that which little epi. Personal information that kids don't be dumb. Protect yourself for your wreck your soap before you write yourself a pretty self. So what's your favorite? What's your favorite Disney restaurant? Favorite Disney restaurant would have to be it would be peco's tall tale. Whatever by parts to care Bian. I love that. Choose. That's a classic the that's going to be my favorite. Well, I don't know anymore because it doesn't get the guacamole in the bar anymore, but like it's just all the food there is very. Oh, no. I take that back. Sorry, I take it back the new restaurant in the Pandora area, the, the salty canteen or something like that plays is up on. I've heard nothing but amazing things all the stake inside their bowls is so tender delicious. The chicken is. So it's not drying. It's just so good. Yeah. That place is my favorite. That's awesome. Awesome. What's your favorite place to eat? I know I know ladies, she's gonna have a one of those restaurants with the quadruple dollar signs. Sorry, I'm a fine dining nerd. California girl is, is my personal. Favorite foods foods musing, it's, but a lot of it's too, is just like it's such a quintessential, Disney restaurant because we don't know the girl is on top of the contemporary resort, which is a magic kingdom deluxe resort. You can walk to the magic kingdom from from the contemporaries, like a ten minute, walk not even and it's on top of the temporary. So you overlook the magic kingdom and it is just the view is just spectacular when you're having dinner, you're able to always keep your seat because then you can go back and watch the fireworks at night. Like if you have it earlier reservation mixture you're always you're able to do that. I think I think that's that's, that's my favorite. Cruces in Ohio, really good too. QC's is well. Arcus, always in as always the favorites, another great view of the fireworks from narcos pumped music in there as well. The happily ever after music music, or whatever fireworks shows going on that time of year, trying to think any of like my, my second favorite though, is Sinaga, which is over in kingdom lodge KC village, which is the DC part of animal kingdom lodge, and it's like an African Indian Asian fusion type of restaurant in the food is insane. And you do have if you if you're there before the sun goes down, you do have used into the little mini savannah. They have in the middle of, of the resort, which is really cool. But I think that's probably like some of the best food on Disney property, the bread service, y'all. You don't get the bread service and you go over there on what you do with your life. ACO off. You don't get the bread service. Really good. I've never been to a HANA. And if if, if Nikki listen. My husband listens to this he'll be so mad. Because like I don't want to go Lana, I'm one of the few people who just have no one to there. And so you save. He'll be like see we could go do you like chicken? Yeah. Do you like shrimp? Yeah. Do you like state? Yes. The Newell level because all you can eat all of those. Right. It's kind of like those Brazilian places where like they have Rhodesia grill. Yeah. Right. Yeah. Yeah. I've never I've never had it. I've, I've got a tabby lounge is excellent. I love going to Tammy lounge and pump in the music for the fireworks to so it's cool to go there. But yeah, I would be one of your your new experience. Is it? Yeah. Last week, we talked on art, actually no the two from when we recorded what we actually post this ups owed, but on episode twenty three we talk about we need to break our cycle all the time, go to different actually had a dream about that. Did you really know what those it was? It was all of it because remember I told you, because my foot is still is swollen and it's hard to get in a shoe of doing that. You're I finally got him Bose inside tennis shoes right now. But it hurts after a little bit of time and I had, I told Matt and I told eat drink travel dream who we're going with next week that I'm gonna try really hard this trip to not freak out if we don't spend open close at the parks, if we go off and do other things or like sit around and go somewhere else, or like you know, step out of the parks for a little bit, and relaxing outside restaurant or something. Because my foot like I can't push myself too hard like I'm still kind of recovering, you know, so I had a dream that I was totally down with it. And like it was all fun in gravy, but I ended up not going to the parks at all. And my Evan my vacation was over. So I was so sad, and I woke up so sad, 'cause it was so real. And so now I'm really scared that. When I go, I'm just like getting missed all of my time there. Oh, no. I hope it that is not the case. I think you'll be fine. I mean I've got like I said before I've gone there with foot injury, as well a couple times. And even now when I go now it's been like, it'll be almost three years since I got hurt it's still swells when I'm on my feet along time or if it's getting hot, it's like weird. It's while all time. So you'll be fine. When there's weather coming when the wet honest to God, my, my, when, like there's weather coming like acts all weird. Such a lady foot. My foot is like thirty years older than I am. Same. So what? What is your Disney dream? So like what is your alternate bucket list with the Disney parks? I mean, there's, there's a obviously, I would like to go to each of the parks in the crews. But honestly, my, my Disney dream is to. Hide in a bathroom after closing in spend the night in the education, that's isn't it. They're like books like that kingdom keepers. Y book site of a read them, but is that what they do? I know there is a book about these, these two kids who are trying to run away and the class goes on a trip to the museum. So they, they hide in the bathroom at the museum in kind of like stay there for a couple nights or whatever. But as far as the actual education goes, that's, that's wanna do that. But there, yeah, I think I think that'd be thing assuming that all the lights are on, because if they'd turn off all the lights, I'm gonna be on scared. Oh, that would be to I'm terrified of the dark would not be. Euros. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I think I think that's a really good. I think it's a really good Disney park stream. What is your Disney parks dream? Dreary. I. I wish I get to a point where like I could just fly down there, whenever I want and go whenever I want. Maybe that would be amazing. But I don't think that's ever gonna have it. But. I, I think that honestly, think that is gonna like what my, my dream is. I honestly wish I could go more than I do. And I maybe four times a year, and I don't want to be local because new fence. I don't wanna live in Florida. I like my seasons. Sorry, my seasons and also just not here for central Florida at all. But no fence guys. But I just I would wish I had more time. Maybe this is what happens when we get a little older, or just need to bracket, more points, or I don't know what with delta, just so that I have a little bit more time to just go down. Like whenever I want spend like a quick weekend. Then come back up. I think that's like the dream for me. Like I don't wanna live there, but I do wanna be able to go there anytime. I can't I can't because I get so sad. When I see not sad. I mean it's like thing, but like some of the new restaurants that are opening, and I don't get to try them right away and some of them I do some of my do 'cause I do. About four times a year, which is way, more than most people anyways, but they're just so many different things that I want to try, and I feel like I don't have enough time to do it. And so that's, that's the dream is just to have a little more regular access, but not live here. Actually, I take my dream back. I, I wish I wish my Disney dream is that they opened up a damn fifth part. The. The fifth gate it'll happen it'll happen. That would be. So, so final question Disneyland or DisneyWorld. No. Oh, no. This isn't even a fair question, because it's been so long since I've been to Disneyland chair. But I would have to still say, I think, Disney World now if you were gonna say, Disneyland magic kingdom. I would say Disneyland, but as far as the to resort parks, I would devastate DisneyWorld because there's more to do as an adult as a kid, not so much Disneyland because. Disney world. There's a lot more learning experience culture in star, but I love I love Disney World. And I think that would be my favorite place. I think I mean, I'm gonna choose DisneyWorld because it's it's truly my home. It's my brand my brand coding vote is WW collective. So that's, that's my home. Although I've really been lucky lately, too. When I go to Disneyland. It's a very different feeling. It's it's very much. Like I feel like I'm doing like a pilgrimage that, like I feel like that sounds very dramatic but like it really is. Because this is like the place that will actually built in walked. So when I'm at Disneyland just physical, Disneyland out. I love DC wrong. I think so much fun. But there's something there's, there's details at Disneyland the rides are so much better Disneyland so much better. It's actually embarrassing. Like when you go to Disneyland, and you ride the rides and you're like what in the hell like our rights are so much shorter and they're not as detailed even the shops at Disneyland or so much more detailed. But I just feel truly at home in, in DisneyWorld when I go there, it's when they tell you this is really corny. But when they tell you come home, I'm like, yeah, I'm home. This is where this is where I belong. Thank you. But I love Disneyland Doug on. And I think it's, it's something that any true Disney fan really needs if he can hopefully you can make the pilgrimage and go there, at least once, but I do love going to Disneyland and it's, it's, it's just a different level of fantasy but Disney World will be my home forever. Forever ever ever. That's, that's all we got for episode twenty five guys we just wanted to level set with you just talk a little bit about our favorites. Reminisce a little bit.

McCormack and you might know Robert Nigh from our other shows stuff to blow your mind or other show in the house. Steph works network, but today you apparently have somehow wandered into our brand new curiosity store of inventions where we explore human ingenuity for good for ill all of the stuff that comes out of our imaginations and becomes the technology. We use every day or maybe just read about in history books. Yes, the hallowed halls of technological systematic and cultural invention, the very human machines, customs and systems that altered the course of history and today. We're talking about one of the most useful inventions of all time. It's gotta be. And Robert Before I say do you say it like a French guys name, or like what a fish breathes with I go with Guillotine, because it sounds a little more like an open face sandwich that way and also it has. The GAY has not sound to it. Yeah, I like how it sounds kind of like the Minna Tar the Guillotine. But, but apparently guillotine in English is also somewhat acceptable. Pronunciation I don't think there's a firm ruling, one way or another from the Lords of English pronunciation. Now one thing is for certain as we venture into this world of the guillotine beheadings, themselves are just a time honored way for one human being to kill another. It's a wound that still can't be repaired, and it is without question certain death now. One thing I was thinking about to illustrate. This is what would you even say? Is the quote cause of death in a beheading so well? Blood loss loss of oxygen to the brain. Brain Basically it just cuts off. It cuts off your all your plumbing systems from all of your Your your your thinking systems. Yeah, it make it makes you think about how often when you hear phrases like clinically dead, that can refer to something about circulation like the cessation of heartbeat but yeah, so when you separate the head from the body I guess you've got to be really rigorous about what you mean by dead. Though I guess it also happens pretty quickly. See off to worry about it too much, but yeah, all blood comes out of the head, immediate loss of blood pressure. Pressure, which means the brain can't get oxygen, which means the brain can't work. Yeah, and it's something that's just cemented her mythology as well right I. mean you want to kill a vampire? You WanNA, kill Medusa. You WanNa. He'll kill highlander. What do you do you cut their head off? There is something just super naturally potent about this form of death. Well I think that's absolutely true, and you see that in a lot of archaeological finds of beheadings from human history like here's the kind of strange fact, a lot of times when you find beheaded humans from past there appears to be evidence that the. The people were beheaded posthumously. Why did that happen? There are a lot of ways you could explain it. I mean that you would take a dead person and cut off their head. Maybe there's some sort of ritual function. Going on here might be human sacrifice. Maybe there's some kind of symbolic form of justice being done if it's the corpse of a criminal or an enemy or something, but a Lotta Times. It appears like it might be a form of APO tropic magic kind of magic. You would use to ward off evil or bad spirits in the same way that you might find A. Skeleton from hundreds of years ago with an iron rod, driven through it's harder with a brick in its mouth and say the tombs Underneath Venice. Yeah, there's a dismantling of the the both the individual that it seems evident in these acts. we we see. Acts of ritual decapitation dating back thousands of years for instance there's evidence in Brazil the dates back to at least nine thousand BBC and it's. In we find a human skull draped in amputated hands palm side down covering the face as if as if in grief that's from place called Lapa Dough Santo in in South America in Brazil, and a lot of bones have been discovered there and it's not always easy to determine how to read the intention behind what you see in these people, but yeah yeah, there were all kinds of forms of of apparent posthumous mutilation. Going on in the way these bones arranged for example some you'll find skulls. They're full of finger bones inside the skulls. What was going on what made? made the people want to do that. It seems like it may well of foreign to some kind of magical intention. But what was it indeed we can only guess now another kind of significance that beheading often had in the ancient world was that it was one of the many forms of execution, practiced of course in ancient Greece and Rome and in fact, our terms, decapitation and capital punishment both come from the Latin from capit- meaning head so capital punishment is punishment of the head or that you pay you pay for a crime with your head by separating it from the other stuff. And there's some evidence that the ancient Greeks and Romans viewed beheading as not a particularly harsh punishment, but more is a particularly noble, an honorable form of execution, and you can see strains of this thinking carried into much more recent times like when beheading was deployed as an execution method throughout the history of England, not always, but it was most often reserved for the aristocracy, while common criminals might more often be killed in what was considered a less dignified way like hanging. I mean obviously beheadings in general have probably been occurring as long as we've had weapons fine enough to inflict the blow. In its long as we had something that could knock cut ahead off and then when you start looking at these. Th the the use of the of the sword or an axe in execution. A lot of it comes down to the craftsmanship of that weapon, but also the skill of the individual using it. Yeah, that's that's a real kicker, isn't it? I mean when you contract somebody to do a job for you a Lotta time. If you don't have a previous relationship with you don't know what kind of work they're gonNA. Do you want to find those people you can trust? But it's hard to find a trustworthy executioner that you know is going to cut your head off right right like you really got to put yourself in the in the shoes of the condemned here, right? Obviously, you don't want to be stoned to death, you know we don't want to be thrown into that burlap sack with two wild animals and thrown into the river. You would probably prefer a nice beheading, but nobody wants a less than perfect beheading. If the local warlord doing it, you know that's one thing, you know unless however you're worried about the warlord inflicting and intentionally less than perfect stroke out of personal malice. If it's a professional executioner. This doing the honours well, that's either really good, a really bad depending on how you look at it like the idea of a train specialists doing the that sounds good, but on the other hand death via the sort of person who either seeks this line of work out or is not suited for any other form of labor. That's a little. Frightening I would say plus do you really want to be toward the bottom of executioners list for the day after they're tired from swing in that big old acts like it's your turn on Friday afternoon. Yeah, like you kind of I want to be up there. I WOULD WANNA be up there I. let them get that that I blow in on me, I must admit I. Don't think I'd ever much considered the horrors of a week strike. Strike from the executioner until game of thrones came around. Oh, yeah, and then the I suddenly began to think like Oh. Yes, this could go very wrong, but George Martin did not make up this concept obviously of of being week it swinging the executioner's sword or the acts, history is replete with stories of botched beheadings, and they are horrific and unfortunately sometimes kind of funny I. WanNa Tell You a couple This one's not so funny. And this concerns Mary the Queen of Scots, so during the reign of Protestant Queen Elizabeth. I of England in the sixteenth century. There is obviously a lot of anxiety about succession, because Elizabeth had been born to King Henry the eighth and his second wife in Berlin after Henry's first marriage to Catherine of Aragon had been annulled and obviously lots people at the time. especially some. Catholics had opinions about that right. And Elizabeth's cousin Mary Stuart was born to James V of Scotland who was descended from a legitimate royal line, and so many Catholic supporters thought well, maybe Mary actually has a more legitimate claim to the throne Elizabeth does, and so Mary was eventually implicated in an assassination plot against Elizabeth in fifteen eighty six. At least she was allegedly involved in it, and she was sentenced to execution in fifteen eighty seven, so you've got Mary Stuart Mary Queen of Scots. Going to her execution, and the story goes that she's blindfolded, and she gets the block and the executioner. Wearing all black raises up his axe to kill her. But instead of cutting through her neck. He misses, and he hits her on the head, and then some report that she murmurs sweet Jesus in shock, before the execution raises his axe a second time, and then strikes again, and still fails to cut her off completely, and finally he quote just sawed through what remained of her neck. That's that's. That's rough for Mary and this you know this is presumed main event beheading here so this is before royal audience right so this would have to be either inactive, just just just an utterly napped executioner or one that is intentionally doing a bad job at of mouth. Like seems to be very little room in between. It's hard to understand what happened here. Because we you know, we only have accounts from the time, which may not even be fully reliable relying on what people told us they saw their right, and there could be some objective in crafting a version of the tale that sounds more than it actually was, but it actually gets worse. Oh is. Described sometimes that the executioner appeared horrified at what was going on, but the heads men after he got her head off, he took hold of the severed head, and he held it up in front of the crowd, so he could hold up the severed head, and say God save Queen Elizabeth, but he grasped Mary's head by the hair, and it turned out. The hair was a wig, so the head fell down, and rolled away, leaving him holding only a hacked up bloody whig while proclaiming his. His. True Queen, and then another part of the story, maybe maybe not to be believed, is that after Mary's head rolled away? Her lips kept moving as if she was talking or praying. We've okay, some of that sounds like it might have been imbalanced, but it also sounds like this guy is a real hack. No Pun intended well. I got an even worse hack for you is. There was a seventeenth century English executioner named Jack Ketch catch spelled like catch up. Catch, yeah or like. What's the the kid in the pokey? Man's I have no idea. Are Very knowledgeable producer Paul just tells me It is Ash Ketchum okay I guess he's got to catch him. All Right, said Jack Ketchum right the harder. That's what comes to my mind well any. This is Jack Ketch. Okay K. E.. So jet catch birthdate unknown died in sixteen, Eighty, six, who was notorious for being a complete screw up at his job and bungling executions a couple of examples. In sixteen, Eighty three catch performed the beheading of William Lord Russell who was convicted for treason in his role of in Israel in the house plot which was against King Charles. The second of England and catches beheading of Russell was reportedly just this clumsy horror with catch whacking Russell again and again with the acts for repeatedly failing to get his head off, and apparently after this catch defended himself by complaining that Russell wouldn't hold still. And then you got the second one later James Duke of Monmouth, he went to the block for the monmouth rebellion of sixteen, Eighty five, and he tried to pay catch not to screw up his execution. He's recorded as saying quote. Here are six guineas for you. Pray do your business well? Do not serve me as you did. My Lord Russell I have heard you struck him three or four times then monmouth gave three more guineas to his servant, who was standing nearby and told A. A servant to pay catch only catch did the beheading correctly and then catch, said I, hope I shall then monmouth asked to feel the axe played. Any did any complained that this is too dull and catch said no, it's sharp enough. It'll be heavy enough. So monmouth got down in place to accept his fate and catch brought the axe down on Monmouth, and at this point it is reported that after he got hit, monmouth lifted his head up and turned around and glared at catch angrily. Then he got back down, so catch could hit him again and catch hit him several more times failing each time to behead him, then catch got frustrated and tried to walk away and quit in the middle of the execution, while Monmouth was still alive, but the crowd yelled him, and told him to go back and finish it so finally he went back after some more blows in the use of a knife, he finally managed to get the Dukes head off well. That's awful growing. This guy is a true hack. Wonder if that's where the word hat comes flying, perhaps yeah, but so you had people whose job. Job It was to administer. Would I guess was supposed to be the more humane form of execution at the time I mean, this is different than being you know tortured and hanged, drawn and quartered, and all that, but he this is obviously not going the way it's supposed to, and if we're going inspired by the Greek and Roman model, something is obviously wrong here. Like not only is it unnecessarily painful does not really seem like an honorable death. The seems humiliating. There's nothing noble about this. You know this is not a finally craft instrument wielded by by an expert practitioner. This is logistically clumsy exercise in horror. But what if mechanical controls could be set in place? The same level of perfection, regardless of whoever happens to be wearing the hood. HOW TIRED THEY ARE! WHAT SORT OF WEAPON? They're using sort of six stuff there into. A machine that cannot get tired. It can't hesitate or engage in unfair punishment. It's not going to judge you based on your your royal or commoner status, a good blade, some gravity in a simple frame with neck lock well, that would be the guillotine or I. We're going to take a quick break. When we come back, we will discuss. Some precursors to the guillotine and the Guillotine itself. This episode is brought to you by IBM Today.

This episode is brought to you by IBM Today the world looks pretty different, but already new problems are being met with new thinking. Researchers are using supercomputers to discover treatments faster. Retailers are turning to the cloud to restock shelves more quickly. Teachers are working with ai to rethink the classroom. It's not everything, but it's a start. Let's put smart to work. See how IBM is helping at IBM dot com slash covid nineteen. All right, we're back so the Guillotine of late eighteenth century France. Which I'm sure you've heard about before. That was involved in the French Revolution, the reign of terror, the first French Republic that Guillotine was not the first human head removal machine, not by a long shot, and we're not saying it was you know that it was predated by people swinging an axe resort with their hands. Of course it was, but there were organized machines for doing this job. I am more consistent way before the Guillotine was instituted in France right and they worked along the same principles, they maybe they weren't quite as refined, but essentially the idea was there though we should say that it was only in the aftermath of the the French Revolution that people began referring to decapitation machines as guillotine. That's where the name comes from. Yes, they had equally less refined names. They had more grisly names. You want fines. We'll meet a couple in a moment. So as for who invented the first general decapitation machine, this is totally unknown lost to history, and in fact, we don't even know for sure. How many societies used a device like this? There are a lot of. But many of these tales might not even be true. We don't know for sure right. And then how often is the individuals? celebrated a four creating such a thing as we'll discover the naming of the the Guillotine doesn't really relate to the individual individuals that created it right I mean a lot of people who create execution devices don't want to be associated with right, and when you find the people who do want to be associated with them or don't mind. You got to kind of wonder about those. so there are a couple known mechanical beheading devices from England that predated the French Guillotine, and one is known as the Halifax jibbed so the how Halifax town in West Yorkshire in England, and it had this infamous beheading machine known as the Halifax Jib which was allegedly used mostly to punish petty theft support would steal some small, some of money or something worth not very much author, something and into the Halifax Jibbidy. They would go. It was described in eighteen thirty seven history by an author named William, white in the following way quote. The executions always took place on the Great Market Day in order to strike the more terror into the neighborhood. When the criminal was brought to the debate, which stood a little way out of the town, where part of the stone platform may still be seen on Jim Hill the execution, was performed by means of an engine which was raised upon a platform, four feet, high and thirteen feet square, faced on every side with stone, ascended by a flight of steps in the middle of this platform was placed to upright. Upright pieces of timber, fifteen feet high joined the top by a transverse beam, within these was a square block of wood, four feet, and a half long, which moved up, and down by means of Grooves, made for that purpose to the lower part of the sliding block, was fastened an iron axe of the weight of seven pounds and twelve ounces, the axe, thus fixed, was drawn up to the top by a cord and pulley at the end of the cord, was a pin which being fixed the block kept it suspended till the moment of execution when the culprit having placed his head on the block, the pin was. and. His head was instantly severed from his body. If the offender was condemned for stealing an ox, a sheep or a horse, the end of the rope was fastened to the beast, which being driven, pulled out the pin, and thus became the executioner in other cases, the Bela for his servant cut the rope, and allowed the axe to descend so a little unnecessary complexity, involving farm animals, but otherwise the basic principles of the Guillotine is. We have come to know it. Yeah, it's more or less there. There might be some design refinements. We come on later, but the is. Is the idea it's. It's a reliable consistent machine. That's not going to mess up right. Of course it doesn't sound like it was necessarily a custom blade, or maybe it was, but it's very much based on the design of an axe blade. Yeah, and when you see illustrations, it looks like just a large axe head on the bottom of a huge wooden block so this beheading machine of Halifax was famous enough that the English. Poet John Taylor referenced it alongside the notoriously tough police of Kingston upon hull in a poem The the I thought was pretty. Pretty. Good, he writes there is a proverb and a prayer with all that we may not to three strange places fall from hull from Halifax from Hell. Tis thus from all these three good lord deliver us at Halifax the law so sharp doth deal that who so more than one three pence doth steal, they have a lynn that wondrous quick, and well, since thieves all headless unto Heaven or Hell from Hell each man says Lord. Deliver me because from Hell can no redemption be mid-may escape from Hull and Halifax, but sure in hell there is a heavier tax. Tax Sounds pretty grim. Well I it sort of captures two themes there one is that how the Halifax jibbed is deadly something to be feared, but it also contrasts it with the supposed tortures of Hell I guess again emphasizing that well, it's not as torture s as many of the other methods are being used as almost scrubbing it like it's a like it's a plane ticket to to greater rewards or suffering, depending on how one supernatural revenge fantasy is playing out here, but on the other hand I like that it is to a certain extent farm animals. You know standing. It is to a certain extent saving the horrors of an afterlife for those imagined afterlife, and not trying to. Embody them too much in the act of execution itself. Yeah, now whether that's actually a good thing or not, we can discuss later, but it does seem to be. There is at least a there's at least a superficial kind of humaneness to right, even though it seems to be being lumped on people who who committing extremely crimes, not in no matter what you think, really probably a deserving of death, but There's some strange stories about. About how people reacted to what happened with at the Halifax it? The story in Thomas Right tells a legend quote of a country woman who is riding by the Gibb it on her hampers to the market just at the execution of a criminal when the axe chopped his neck through with such force that the head jumped into one of her hampers, or as others say seized her apron with the teeth, and they're stuck for some time. I. Don't believe that's true or at least the teeth I don't believe again. We're coming back to the sort of inherent comedy I mean it true gallows humor. That comes with beheading executions. But there's an interesting observation from the Halifax historian. John Crabtree who has a sort of attitude about what stories like this mean, he writes quote, it is useless employing words about this fair, but the circumstance may serve to show with what apathy country people regarded this mode of punishment. Their minds were evidently hardened by such exhibitions, and the fact develops the inadequacy of such. Such awful administrations of justice to produce that proper moral and salutory effect which might have been anticipated such scenes off repeated appear to harden rather than soften to stupefy rather than awaken the sensibilities of Man's nature and I think we should come back to that thought later on indeed all right. So, what else do we have in terms of Proto? Guillotine machines well. A quicker story is just a copy essentially of the Halifax. Jimmy known as the Scottish Maidens James Douglas the fourth earl of Morton. Who is the ruler of Scotland from fifteen seventy, two to fifteen, seventy eight, he was alleged at some point to have introduced the decapitation machine to his country of Scott's inspired by the Halifax Gibb. Allegedly he at some point traveled through Halifax. He was so inspired by the it that he thought. Thought I should share the same technology with my countrymen, so a similar machine was built out of Oak, and it can be transported around the country to perform beheadings wherever, but it was often accepting the condemned at Edinburgh and according to the national museums of Scotland crimes that could get you sent to. The Scottish maiden included murder incest, stealing treason, adultery forgery and robbery, but there's an ironic twist us so James Douglas Earl for thorough. Thorough of Morton was a supporter of James, the sixth, and Morton opposed the Catholic faction of Mary Queen of Scots who we discussed earlier Mary Stuart and he was eventually implicated in a plot to murder Mary's second husband. Lord Darnley and was put to death in June fifteen, eighty, one decapitated by the Scottish maiden that he brought to Scotland There's your poetic justice and legends of that kind will appear again and again in. In this episode actually and even beyond this episode, because isn't that a common theme? The the the man destroyed by his own invention by his own machine. It happens enough in the movies that you should think it happens more often in reality, though in the movies is especially common in that invention is some kind of hybrid animal, I created a shark ape, and you know it swings from the trees. Taking bites out of people. Who who could have known? My Shark would turn on me and he. It always happens. All right so as we've been discussing, there were similar devices already use in Europe in had been for centuries before the guillotine came around, but the individual who is often credited as the inventor of the Guillotine. Is a French surgeon and physiologists Antoine Louis. Who lives seventeen twenty three Su Seventeen, ninety two. Yeah, he is often credited as the inventor though I based on what I was reading. It appears to me was maybe designed by some sort of committee of which Louis was the leader right, and this is actually all the more fitting of when we really get to the heart of the Guillotine here because it is this this thing that is, it is this utilization of technology and there's there's an air of civility to it. this this taking something that is. Of rather barbaric, and making it a little less so well. It's bureaucratic violence. Yes, exactly it very much embodies the idea of retributive violence by the state taken out of the emotional hands of the single executioner, and placed into the hands of a disembodied machine that is created by a committee through drafts. Yes, you know. We have another episode that we're recording this week on vending machines and it's amazing. The similarities involved here these this these symptoms these struggles over. What exactly is happening when a machine does, the bidding of a human machine is vending, say blasphemous literature as we're discussing his other episode. Then who's at fault for said Literature Sale, and there's a sense of that here, too. It's like the bureaucracy has condemned you to death. The machine is actually doing the execution. We're merely pushing the button pulling the string etc to carry out this judgment right, but we do at least have Antoine Louis to associate with the creation of the machine. Machine even if it wasn't just him alone because of his association with it, it was often call early on it was called names, not the guillotine yet, but names like the Louisette or the Lewis Zone, which doesn't have as much of a ring to it. I kinda like you I could see executions by the Louisette. Yeah I guess it would have grown on us, but it at any rate later. It definitely came to be named after deal South Nass Aguiton. Lived Seventeen thirty eight through eighteen fourteen. He was a physician. He was a National Assembly member. Any played a major role in passing legislation. They death by machine the law. The loose idea here is that it would kind of legislation would provide the best possible version of beheading to all classes of society. and. We do have to point out that despite some urban legends out there. Guillotine himself was not killed by his own machine, and he wasn't actually a huge fan of execution, either is not like he was a huge execution enthusiasts. We'll know exactly the opposite gear. Thanh oppose the death penalty. He wanted the abolition of the death penalty, but he didn't think he could accomplish that directly right. This seemed the best reasonable next step, right? It's like if I can't, we can't eradicate it. We're going to have it. We might as well. Well, make it clean and fair to all involved. According to popular legend Guillotine was born when his pregnant mother was out walking one day, and she overheard the screams of a condemned criminal, being broken on the wheel, breaking on the wheel. Was You know a classic death by torture type method where a person would be stretched out on a wheel in kind of starfish pose, and they'd have their limbs broken with an iron rod or with a club. Just insane brutality. So he was very much opposed to that sort of thing, not only just the bar, the barbaric nature of the execution, but the public nature of the idea that that women and children. Just innocent bystanders might just walk through town in witness such. Such horror, so he was thinking. Maybe if less children end up watching this the better and make it yet, it's more systematic. It's more you know. The the act itself is is less flashy and then we're just GONNA. Make it less for performance, so gear Tom was not out there, lobbying to get this machine named after his family. You know it just. It ended up sticking now. Cool little fact here. That sounds like something right out of an Allen more comic book, but along with Benjamin Franklin. Guillotine investigated the work of Friends Messmer of mesmerized them. You know the. The the form of hypnotism that we had back in the day, and they investigated him on behalf of King Louis The Sixteenth League of Extraordinary Gentlemen exactly. So another way of thinking you. You alluded to this a minute ago. Robert like the idea that it would be the best method for all the classes, so another way of thinking about the motivation for the institution of the Guillotine at this time in history was that it supposedly extended the democratic and egalitarian principles of the French Revolution to common criminals, essentially extending them the courtesy of the honorable beheading that was more often reserved for nobles and Aristocrats, instead of more shameful and common and painful deaths, like hanging burning or breaking on the wheel, which you were more likely to get if you were just some lower. Lower Class, petty criminal right now as for the idea Gaston had thinking that this would shield children from the gruesome practice of execution. Unfortunately, this did not work out I was reading a section from a book called Children's toys of bygone days, a history of playthings of all peoples from prehistoric times to the nineteenth century by Karl Gruber, published in Nineteen Twenty, eight, and the author writes quote. The worst monstrosity of the kind was the outcome of the French Revolution, which indeed was over rich in aberrations of taste. The toyshops put on the market little guillotine, with which little patriots could be head figures of aristocrats. They're still survive some specimens of this pretty in diverting machine, one of which bears the date seventeen, ninety four, and he's got an illustration. These were not models, but pure toys, and improve of this. We have the kings evidence from one whom we should never suspect of wishing to give so bloodthirsty a toy to his little son, and here the author is speaking of the romantic poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. So. Gruber tells the story. that, in December, seventeen, ninety, three, Gert wrote a letter to his mother in Frankfurt asking if she would buy a toy guillotine for his little son, and she replied dear son, anything I can do to please you gladly done, and gives me joy, but to buy such an infamous implement of murder that I will not do at any price if I had authority, the maker should be put in the stocks and I would have the machine publicly burnt by the common executioner. And I guess this is sort of the seventeen ninety s equivalent of like asking your grandmother to buy you a copy of doom for Christmas and the nineteen nineties. Yeah, well I'm glad that you brought up a doom here in just be because it's easy for us to look back on this account and thank all these children of more. Barbarous Age, but go to any toy store and look at the machine gun based. Toys that are on display there. All the various guns true true murder weapons. In not even methods IDs of bureaucratic execution, but weapons of just Walton violence, these are all represented in toys even today. Likewise I can't help, but think back on how much I wanted the slime pit when I was a kid. I do does that. This was a masters of the universe play-set that device in basically would lock. He man or some other figure into the machine, and it was shaped like a skull, and then it would dump slime on top of the head of the poor hero, and it was i. think maybe the actual lower it was like would make them mutate or something, but it was very much it was very much like a guillotine. Except instead of a blade, it was slimy. It was clearly an instrument of execution of ritualized. For your toys, so you're arranging an execution for he man exactly so. You know the idea of a toy guillotine. It makes perfect sense. We can't we can only distance ourselves from such an idea so much though I also have to wonder I somehow detect between the lines. This could have been one of those situations. Where Robert I bet you're familiar with this. Where a dad buys or requests a toy for his child, because secretly, he wants to play. in fact Gert Road in Faust Quote Ages No. Second Childhood Age Makes Plain Children. We were true children. We remain again. Much like it is today. And we mentioned the Tom was responsible for introducing legislation that would eventually lead the French. National Assembly to say okay. We're only going to be killing people by beheading machine. Now that that's that's GonNa, be the new method of execution. That's what's humane. That's what the state should be up to. And so I think in just a minute we should turn to the machine itself, but I just want to quickly before we do that to discuss. Discuss where it is that this rumor came from the Tom was killed by the machine that he recommended putting in place for executions in France and I. Think I know. Maybe a few threads of were the story came from. Obviously, we had that ironic story of the Earl of Morton earlier right right so and see how that might have influenced confused the telling right, but then there a couple of other examples so doctor Antoine Louis, the secretary of the Academy of. Of. Medicine and physician to King Louis the one who we talked about earlier chairing that committee that designed the device he was actually temporarily condemned to die in the machine that he designed or helped design, though he escaped this fate back during a change of power, so he narrowly escaped going to the Guillotine himself and then King, Louis, the sixteenth, who was interested in mechanical engineering, is said to have made refinements to the design of the guillotine like recommending an. An angled blade while he was still in power before the device was eventually turned on the king himself, and on his wife Marie Antoinette and so there's another kind of like creator, and then killed by his creation irony there since he apparently or at least allegedly offered refinements to the design or I well on that note, we're going to take one more break. When we come back, we'll discuss the machine itself in more detail and we'll also discuss its let. iheartradio and state farm know the graduation stage is the first of many and wall.

VISIT LEXUS DOT com slash people I to find out what Lexus is doing for their guests, their employees and for our communities. Are we're back so now we're at the machine itself. The French guillotine of the seventeen eighty s and onward and the question is was it actually built? Will of course yes, this one was definitely built some of the WHO were discussing this show. Maybe didn't get out of the blueprint phase. The this definitely saw action so after the legal standard of execution by machine approved by the national assembly in Seventeen Ninety one. The construction of the machine was delegated to a politician named Pierre Louis Red Ari'el who? I'm always going to struggle with that name, so I'll just call him. Here, he apparently had trouble finding a contractor who could build the machine since no one wanted their name associated with it, and eventually found a taker is a taker from Germany. And so the guillotine was constructed by a German harpsichord maker named Tobias it Apparently, he also supplied a leather sack that would catch heads, and now you just gotTa wonder about to bias. I can just imagine the scenario. It's like so honey. What are you working on? Today I this new contract as well. It's going to really help us out next month, oh. Who You bring hot Harpsichord for well. It's not quite a Harpsichord while I'm just imagining you in his shop while he's working on the team that Harpsichord music is. Playing Team Dean Dean Dainty. Anyway, according to the memoirs of the French Executioner Enrique Lamont San Song in eighteen seventy six cents on, came from a line of a long line of executioners, and he so he has these memoirs about his family's exploits, cutting off heads and performing executions in France, and his memoirs are considered probably only partially reliable, but is up close. Description of the workings of the Guillotine is fairly straightforward so I feel he's probably on the right track here all right? I'm going to read part of this in I'm going to go for an executioner's voice. He'll do it. On a scaffold from seventy eight feet high to parallel bars are made fast and one end their top part is united by strong crossbar to this crossbars added thick iron ring, in which is passed a rope, which fixes and retains Aram this perpendicularly armed with a sharp and broad blade, which gradually becomes broader, all its surface, so that instead of striking perpendicularly it strikes sideways so that there is not an inch of the blade that does not serve the ram ways from sixty to eighty pounds, and it's Wade is doubled when it begins to slide down, it is included. Included in the groove of the bars, a spring makes it fast to the left Bar aband- of iron descends along the outside of the same bar, and the handle is locked to a ring with a padlock, so the new accident is possible in the weight only falls from the executioner interferes to wavelength. Strong straps are fastened by which the criminals attached under the armpits, and over the legs, so that the body cannot move as soon as the way playing goes down the head, being between the bars, you supported by rounded crossbar, the executioners assistance lower another rounded crossbar. The head being thus grooved in perfect circle, which prevents it from moving in any way, this precaution is indispensable in regard to that terrible inconvenience as a fear, the executioner then touches the spring. The whole affair is done so quickly that only thump of the blade when it slides down, informs the spectators that the culprit is no longer of the living. The head falls into a basket full of brand, and the body is pushed into another wicker basket line with very thick leather. Has a heck of a reading, Robert. Yeah going to do a number of my throat but I'm sorry. Maybe I should have taken part of it, but I was just enjoying listening to your Enrique Lemond well. There's a precision in his. In his description of the act that I felt like I had had to capture now. Obviously, he's described how the device works now, but they had tested out before they can make sure to to try it on a human right so right I. You always wonder like. How do you test a guillotine? You put a watermelon in there. Do you gallagher it well especially could, but it's kind of a waste of a good melon, and ultimately you want to test it on the real thing right so they. He's dead bodies Oh. Yeah, also farm animals like sheep and calves. Because we I mean it makes sense you WanNa. Make sure you're cutting through actual. Vertebrate tissue there most notably the neck, and then on April, twenty fifth seventeen ninety two officials installed and use the eighteen for the first time right so the first victim of the French Guillotine was Nicolas Jacques Beltway who was a highway man, and he was executed where the machine was erected at the plaza, de Greve, and they're so large crowd came out obviously to witness the first execution by the new machine, but it was reported that the crowd was somewhat unimpressed, and they found the efficiency of the killing less entertaining than the forms of execution. They were used to even the more classic beheadings. Nevertheless overtime! The executions at the eighteen became a very popular spectator event during the reign of terror, and you know in generally afterwards. When the Guillotine was used, people would show up to watch, so we see a little success here like it was clearly less dramatic there was less theater in the act and yet at the same time. Few things are more dramatic in life. Then the ending of life like this is people you can understand why people would still turn out. Even if you had made things a little more precise now putting aside the question. I guess we talk about new minute over whether it's ever. Ever humane to just execute somebody. Was it actually true? The the the guillotine was a more refined more humane version of execution than what came before was it? Was it an improvement? If you were somebody who is interested in reducing the suffering of humankind? Yeah, I mean you could again you could say the concept is inherently controversial, but still others took issue with just how humane it was so oppression doctor Samuel Thomas summering who seventeen fifty five through eighteen thirty, he studied the cadavers of Guillotine victims, and he argued that severed heads were still capable feeling, and since any wrote an essay on this in seventeen, ninety five. So, he was something of a polymath In addition to naming the twelve pairs of cranial nerves, he also invented telegraphic system and made discoveries in paleontology specifically with pterodactyl fossils. They're not dinosaurs, folks a different thing. So this was this was not just a the wasn't just some crazy guy coming up in Santa. The heads are still alive. You know he was. He was making a an expert argument. That like I'm not sure that this is great what we're doing. Maybe it's a little. It's almost a little too precise. Yeah, the core takeaway of his essay on the inhumanity of the Guillotine was that. We can't rule out that it's possible that a severed head could still be having experienced could experience being severed now we know there were a lot of tales of this happening right of people running to check out the heads of the decapitated in various doctors checking in and seeing what was going on with the is there was a lot of interest in this in determining. What happens to consciousness at death like this was a perfect clinical exercise of for for weighing in on it yeah, the Classic Tales about this thing. It repeated the most often or like seeing someone's cheeks flushed with anger when they behold someone who someone who mocks them or something like that or or who slaps him in the face or thinking that that I severed head would be like looking at people as if it recognized them. Yes, something like that. Yeah, and obviously there's a lot of involvement with these stories, but we don't know how much to trust them. Yeah, we really don't know how much to trust them, but we do know today that that any kind of activity seen in the the heads after death. Most of this is going to be reflective twitching of muscles so Basically Coma and brain death are probably going to occur within two to three seconds of decapitation, due to interruption of blood flow to the brain, so just the massive sudden drop in blood pressure. That's do it. Yeah, so any tales of like you know confronting the head having any kind of like moment of human. Contact even just in the is It's pretty clear that that is all just an embellishment of stories or just wishful thinking on the part of the Observer. So what is the legacy of this machine this machine of bureaucratic violence, and if we try to look at it from with our perspective from today with our hindsight, and you know with with the kind of value judgments we would make was the guillotine a step forward or a step backward was it as Gaston envisioned a more humane. Way of doing business when the state was just. Couldn't be convinced not to kill people, or did it perhaps enable a worse state of affairs where more people could be sent to their deaths with impunity than would have been the case otherwise. Yeah. I think he could probably go either way on it I mean one. Thing's for certain it. It changed the way executions were performed in France for nearly two hundred years. He was actually used in France up until one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy seven. That's when the last execution occurred the team before the outlying of capital punishment in Nineteen eighty-one. It also took on symbolic. Weight is just this this symbol of the reign of terror, and perhaps to a larger extent, a symbol of systematically violent rebellion. Yeah, I read one author point out, certainly not in defending the guillotine or the use of the Guillotine, but it just pointing out a kind of strange irony that the guillotine now to US symbolizes this this horror, this horror period of. Violence which it certainly was, but we look at that, and we think of that period as a reign of terror, but don't think the same way say about the Napoleonic wars, which killed far more people than the Guillotine never did not that that makes the killings, the Guillotine, any less horrific true now one one thing about the the weirdness of this whole situation that stands out I mean aside from just the inherently weird nature of of a beheading machine machine that cuts off heads. There is still something highly symbolic going on here, think to the means of an execution in you'll typically see an expression of power involved say it's a physical strength, or you know vengeful spirit or increasingly a culture's greatest technological achievements. Isn't it weird to think about how these methods climbed the tree of developing technology, so starting with varying levels of tool, proficiency, axes, and swords, weapons, weapon crafting then we go into gunpowder. Firing squads, electricity and the electric chair. It is weird to trace the history execution methods, just sort of like tracking with whatever's the most interesting new technology. We have available yet. Chemicals Pharmaceuticals may why an electric chair that is just such a strange idea to even come up with yeah, French philosopher Michelle Suco He weighed in on this and he pointed out that penal technology is of course an expression of power, but we also have to dwell on the fact that it does this through every day technology ubiquitous technology, so if it's something like electricity or even you know even pharmaceuticals chemicals. It's taking. Aspects of everyday life and turning them into the the the the system, the tool of of justice, so like our everyday use of energy in the consumer economy, a constant reminder of the methods of death that the State can inflict upon people if they if they don't say in line exactly now, one small area of the legacy of the Guillotine comes down to its use in medical terminology, so there are two primary means of amputation. In terms of like a limb, or whatever you a you, a flap amputations in which flaps of flesh are left so that you can fold them and close the stump. Of the wound and then there are guillotine amputations which which are more of a straight down affair with no immediate concerns for flap tissue so in. Guillotine amputation it's more about cutting out infected tissue and making sure drainage proper drainage occurs, and then secondary surgery is performed to create the flap tissue to close everything off into a stomp, but obviously that's like a secondary Appalachian. Wouldn't you wouldn't have called that guillotine cutting in the surgical since before the Guillotine right, but is certainly an example. Where if you're you, you you encountered this terminology now in medical science, and and it stems from the use of this execution device that being said there's a lot of medical terminology stems from their weapons, and so forth of course. So I WANNA, come back to this question that we've been teasing throughout where you can't help, but wonder if Josephine. Yes, Kia. Thanh pushed us in exactly the wrong direction if he was actually against the death penalty in trying to institute more humane treatment of criminals, I, you know it's hard not to notice that by sanitizing a horrible act, it often seems like you make the act easier to carry out and I. I mean just think about how this applies to modern methods of state-sanctioned killing everything from lethal injection to drone strikes, does the sanitizing and distancing and de personalization opportunity provided by lethal technology? Encourage us to to make ourselves able to kill more while feeling less about it. Yeah, I mean ultimately is the the botched execution that we've discussed already are those not maybe more honest depiction of what's going on this this fallible. Barbaric human effort, not this precision of the holy blameless machine while I mean obviously we're not going to sit here and advocate brutal botched executions Jack Ketch hacking at us with the sword or an axe, but Yeah! At least with that I'm not saying that's preferable, but I do see what you're saying that it's at least they're. You're acknowledging that something brutal and weird is going on, and you can't just clean it up in your mind and ignore it because you're hearing the screams and splattering on you, and it's so brutal that it's almost funny. You know it's interesting you know in the show. We talk about innovation and inventions, and how how they changed the world and and so often he's. That people have to look back and try to figure out what changed and how it changed us, and here we are hundreds of years later. looking back and saying well. What did the Guillotine main? What did it do? And what are the ultimate ramifications of this advancement? Well I posit that maybe one take away from it is the the truth is it has showed us that there is no good or clean or sanitary way to kill a person. Any belief that there is in fact turns out to be kind of brutalizing and Dehumanizing Luge Alright so that's it for this week's episode of invention.

I think like it'd be like measuring like the area of your house than adding like this shed to this alright livable we think that Lino the later in life the more you need to know well I think I mean in that sense I feel like are we doing displacement you're including on so we're talking like a milliliters yeah what's the metric here this Mela leaders is the metric right I can't because I'm earning to allow me to introduce the girth commoner folks brand new truly only way to measure actual eleven milliliters are eleven fluid ounces of Cock but different looking Cox right but I think the the women and men out there ah package you think in terms of milliliters yeah what's Coke can you what is a cocaine probably with shock wave fame and freestyle love supreme check out there on Broadway Broadway just texted me are you guys doing a Halloween show this year it didn't even dawn on me to do homage initiate you know the people that are sort of they're cut short because they you know these people that are maybe five the the growth factor because then you get the percentage of the Delta the Delta Yeah that's pretty fun the grower showers and the deltas actually super important saying it should be separate right I think separate yeah new products like down the line after this one point on the same line because you're different line obviously but yeah you don't want yeah that's what I'm thinking all of a sudden you know phenomenal babies by in back biting back so that's the girl more than a week out right now it's on it's on a Halloween is next Thursday yon it's a little tough made me have to save this idea but and what is his apparatus look like looks a lot like when you're a classic measuring Cups Jeff but there's it's going to be more of an insert knbr like no leaders that'd be way too high right be like well but that could sound cool though well short and stout and long and skinny could end up still being a like you know alone I am in Life Crisis Cups it's fun for the whole family just like your ears and nose keep growing while you're on the same side yeah the right to to Dunkin so you're like planking into it you actually do after plank right which we actually find helps with blood little or big kits for at home and essentially their water displacement of course I love I love that commoner kits are the only oh and we're we're moving away from inches centimeters no-one no-one likes that kind of stuff we need to we need to know what your packing Sola and people are hitting a lot of their maximums when they're planking I find I find like so Sayer planking in almost like you need another buddy to look at the measuring Marlin the buddy system if like it held the the highest volume that you had you know like you know like almost what would be base that isn't a livable space but it you know it's where the heart comes from it's where all the juices come right right so that's the dominant sample of that like like your fastball. You know it's just show it shows the Max speed you know like whatever it holds at that range whenever you whenever you get it and I would like if you can do it standing up or sitting down to be honest yeah come to think of the planking makes it difficult a two on the Internet and they can't get a girl because girls might say I don't WanNa date anyone then all of a sudden he's got seventeen fluid You know I think I think people have been looking for this people want this they need to know you know there's ways to measure saucers ways to measure when it's in yeah probably like probably like twelve well right because that actually makes it easier than you still Josh how do you how do you folks how we doing out they welcome to to innovation podcasts for your schemes dreams it is it fluid ounces of fluid out on her and lost both yeah you get both blue would alice's I need showed like stay and of course the Hart State we're really excited heart state or are you volumes no but I think when people say you got you know boots you know no I hear you I'm worried muddled up the earns right to test how well you're doing in life did say that I did say that nice or the single user and the tweeter who might want to do it in their room super maybe some type of Silicon Gel silicon cylinder that I think you Kinda just slide on I see what you're saying right good head on your shoulder and try some dimes and that what have you yeah linked in You know employers care about that kind of stock live this is like an old timer yeah it is it's an all time. She deceived it for Halloween Wow that is fantastic I just think you know I was thinking about you know there's all these different cup sizes for women and their breasts and whatnot ashqarq share the change mark spare the change that's the dominant man I think I think people are GonNa love it Dick would use some sort of you know pliable right soft plush low drama if you will around the horn but I'm curious on if you have any questions if you're curious what what would happen if you were a high school girl and you walked into someone's bathroom in Russian came from you know thinking how Howard Stern can be all you got thirty two double ds but some guy can't lock in with eighteen fluid ounces right now right scene three four what do you think are probably not gonna be able to put that together in a week think your child reach out why don't we just do not have the base on back to the Commodore Yeah now with office new iteration of it I think it can sit on you and the natural sitting position it's absolutely fantastic such a fan of it you know and I think the people are ready for it I don't have much else to say about I guess I I WanNa see the the cops yeah but it's like I don't know this is has to be a little more precise than a bra and just seeing the you know the I B yeah no not want the Super Gulp right Oh I get what you're saying you want the visibility of ability and so obviously it just goes to actor like zero that's cool but if while it's in it measured it like a digital scale that might be better that we don't put it in right we'll sort of clear all the yeah it's digital yeah it's digital this point and then he was sure that to facebook twitter instagram engineers out there and then we got our chemical boys out there speaking Falco but if we you know like other types of Engineers Mechanical engineers the God it's not like is there a kid side you know always picturing this almost more like one of those like things of all the needles where it's almost like an etch a sketch your head we'll take a civil engineer at this point we need all the engineers to get into a room together and dip into some liquid nitrogen yeah maybe we'll reach out to the Lou id right and then you can just sit down even on all right this is why you haven't got the good idea yeah it's like a little like metal rods on your uh-huh That you know maybe we add some of the volume the volume on volume but but I guess how many also down kids got sixty flew announced the tit will a bra isn't measuring injuring it could gift Yeah Yeah I guess that's true I guess yeah we're doing blue it's pretty mm-hmm yeah like a teenager still in this every couple days yeah yeah there's probably and then you can track it over your lifetime so maybe it is a keeper so every six months huge massive fan I'm I'm such a huge fan I might be eighteen fluid ounces of the fan thank you Jennifer to have you aboard Ana it could be on November Twentieth True Yeah Alright Show I'm GonNa look into that what do we think of last shows that our success we got Chicago Chicago in your hands back kind of interesting you're playing in measuring that's what could be any how it goes of it I think that goes without saying that this product wasn't made for me I really don't have any for your boyfriend through your phone like you're you're at the Carnival and you're doing like the the strong man like China like the hammer on the bell you know you can you can get bigger earns is different than just like like you know you get your day especially a teenager I saw family kid of bathroom sink that would you find that appalling I would find that absolutely appalling Alamein that is Halloween that's after until we yeah that's Halloween right right right but I'm saying like it doesn't have to be within the next week like for Halloween I'm doing to see for adding you know who's to say when when you carbo loading it doesn't it goes to your thighs it goes to your stomach maybe a little uh-huh so I get each member may be using a different commoner because you don't want to like share dad why do you need is like dad size different because it is displayed eight maybe all of a sudden doctor I'm calling the doctor I'm seeing you know how I can fix my health that's what I'm doing I'm taking it seriously visual measuring up folks are you in on the Girth almoner I'm GonNa send it around the Horn I'm a customer investor hey if we have any mine thank you next stuff in the pig pen he's the little squarely or at who who has aw little goes to the I think so and it hasn't been proven but I think this can be used for something scientific studies where people don't just like I three pounds pounds in the last week doesn't bother me but if I lost to flu announces right Canadians who who are working on a project some months band maybe this could be a graduate school this right we'll bring into the lab I love it no our last Halloween your thoughts so you had that fantastic thank you yeah that was I don't know how you're going to measure up to that anymore one US product well that that's that's definitely not true and not true because like it's like weightlifting or even yeah I think we'd go back to the polls we take the most voted on idea and we get someone to drop and then posted yeah and then like halfway through when it switches that chopping sound you're you're suddenly on the in the car serving the meal as the chef this is a gift t shirt this there's bigger you can always get changes got a joke yeah you got a joke for your big dead donkey deck that Dave does or you can you you have a robber the bar is the bar making money with me waiting in line to go to the bathroom if anything I'm I'm clogging up the hallway clogging up the the entrance to the oh how much it changes over time depending on your diet maybe you're eating too many fibers or maybe you know backyard maybe in more often than I I don't have a drink in my hand is a total what do they call it when you when all you guys allow me to introduce my idea for this week please do Jeffer- I was telling a story about a famous woman's daughter it says five right and then you know dings four it'll deli counter right like a deli counter or like you know buzzing a shame a lock system okay when people charged their phone right to a degree yes but hear me update you sent in from your phone and it gives you a place in line so does it wants to door vacant you know the lock is right of occupied vacant so our primary system knows when someone is in the coats for everyone brilliant brilliant though the buzz room yeah it's not a great name maybe maybe something else with the locker joining me in line right allegedly and and you get to thinking waiting in a line right I'm waning a line to go to a bathroom is this good for all right so if you miss your window thirty seconds you you know you you drop back to three spots right and the next person gets bumped back at least go in Chile technology so when you when you gotta go to the bathroom you sign in from your phone okay so so this is a proprietary Russian Marwick got about twenty two fluid ounces on like all the best ideas he's L. Hefei the Shafei Chop it up jeff to to to to yeah yeah of course of course of course okay so what if I were to tell you we're taking a little bit of the that Chile's technology okay oh is like a a short lake Panera five-second like no that's one that's one we should get on fire I'm going to get back on fiber that's fine ninety nine everyone who goes into the bar all of a sudden has to buy this up right if you want to go to the bathroom of course you do yeah I mean it it seems squarely pitted on bathroom issues so I don't know if bathrooms should be in the name of the product itself what happens if Ligo dude the in between it was kind of chugging also chopping really good idea for graphic it's like you're you're on a train on tracks and you're the engineer you're like the conductor and we will be a walgreens in the Denver area in a couple of weeks price plan on that day it was nineteen ninety nine nine thousand nine thousand nine hundred worth of course huge check so buzzes when you're next in line and your spot is ready it gives you a code for the door for digit code for the door unique to you love that occupied pooh-poohed I never called occupied but that's a good name occupuied Accu Tude dude through 'cause it can tell when the doors locked from Newton said yes I feel like you know a lot of European bees have that kind of tech to these days right where you can like how how is every if all you have to do is download the APP and then you get the bathroom code that people would come in to use the bathroom and not by drink able to close the door behind them no matter what this would okay so let's say that if I'm the bar I'm considering putting this on my bathroom I would be concerned about Ed funnel deal I can't think of any more net yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah do we allow it you know we don't encourage it but we're not a whole system to a degree yes it would mess up the whole system or Digit Code Ryan Lock the thing that's pretty interesting and this essentially would would this stop you from getting cut though if you open the door and some remotely let somebody in this really of course of course now I can't along the APP the APP is five ninety nine heck is is rarely used the bathroom more so than they would normally trail if anything you'd want to place that didn't have this van loving way to measure your penis is three and tastic there's a game it's a game changer Thanksgiving game child clip it out for me and and bargain to cut too so the bar's making money when people go to the bathroom to APP ship possibly be two dollars two dollars yeah we'll go to ninety nine because you spend five dollars yeah holding up a bunch of different Kurds and it does remind me the Citi bike where you go there you tap your there and it gives you that four on sake and a big old duty though and takes them ten minutes our the air the next person going to get buzzed in get the code all someone still on the no so they only get to use it for the rest of your life right because then you log into each bar or it knows were what bar you're on based on your gps what about instead of someone's doing h in the bathroom which I've seen before you know you have to have Ron Yeah and then you have to like bang on the door and shooting apparent garth you're not allowed you gotta go go now to drink but they don't have a cell phone there obviously the bartender has a cell phone he can the place in line whose cell phone like the Borat type of person so that's the idea we're calling octopus I guess dollars to install store not bad no now gray and in case you know say some people are in their money and ten dollars the bartender can remotely lock order bath we would have to be an emergency would make me mad and I would almost WANNA leave go spend ring at one time the line illegal actually you're spending at one time how far where I worked at the kick them out we were actually pretty tough L. people though I imagine ooh that's scary jeff so what happened if that person woke up in the middle of night there would they be lot it's two children in a museum really yeah from nine of the museum they don't come the things don't come alive heroin involved in it But when they do that anyway I guess they really need to go to the bathroom yeah I mean I guess that's true do never went back there we actually almost did lock one of these guys in overnight because we didn't know he was in the bathroom and we were about to close it's a great idea jeff this is something people need not only do people not like waiting in line but they don't like waiting in line when they have to or damage in their backyard but at that point they'd have to climb over fences to get out into the bar itself and drink all definitely live won't they okay it's understandable with with our system to great question yes and we're glad yeah I'm glad I did too honestly you know they're the afterwards but my four other aggressive why it wasn't me I had someone else take them out our shook the the the Deli counter style with the the number that silent how the ticket actually shows up on your phone it looks like one of those Deli counter tickets Ooh Juris anyways what do you guys think of the idea I I for one thing interesting I like that and I had another idea do like a drink ordering you could mix in a drink ordering system yeah sounds like a like an octopus with Nelson is holding up different codes and stuff often based on your occupy upon So yeah the the t the tech itself is gonNa cost the bar about two hundred ninety nine hi this is why we should have recorded ourselves always say I said it last week live on this episode lives go right it's it's tough to you know stand up in squeeze your butt cheeks versus sitting down in squeezing her but she Unusual from out of the country is occupied and asked to go to the bathroom the kids have to go to the bathroom Goddamn Tom that is how I thought of the Commodore All right guys thank you I appreciate your coming right like with this be like I don't know I mean it's good because you pass to take shit we don't know what this is brutus an idea or a product schemes injuring I have a very good friend that both of you know team team Oh yes adore now all of a sudden you know our income asylum is open and all the doors just in someone's passed out maybe and she is the queen with the most beans she's Queen Ana folks you've heard round of applaud show the bartender your fly do drink through a glory hole to turn it sideways to get it in an oil spills on your God on thanks so I have a bit

That would have been a good blow for them and they missed it all right a quiet place to I didn't like the first one now. I I liked it. I didn't love it. Yeah it's I wasn't a fan of how the defeated the spider to demagoguing. It's just because of how how long they had that. They took an over. That took them this long to figure out that when they don't like when they they hearing sentences that sense of high pitched voice will kill. You think somebody one of these even even think they can hear really. I don't know the person wise stupid first movie was pretty good. It was intriguing. The way they did did it with the whole silence kind of gave me like the theater. Experience was a little weird because I didn't want to eat my popcorn. They're like here you. Yeah I know I was just waiting for someone qui- please make noise or whatever and that was part of the experience but it was a good enough movie. I think this will looks pretty good too. It's a a very very popular minutes shit money things like a February release. It's not the worst sequel that they could have made well the winning today though Danza. They're pretty well. Those those are the satisfying ending. Wasn't expecting second actually. Yeah I kinda liked it. If they were just ended there but I made a lot of money. Krinsky had a good director debut. Emily Blunt Great Zoe Zoe. So you see us in a new one who you boy chill lacks Murphy. Yeah Bush's Guy's name chill accident Yeah he didn't even look himself in that it's so weird not to see them all. Cut Up an unperfect Chin. Joel Line really is Joel on wasn't pronounced now. She's got a beard beard in this. I didn't even know we can grow beard and either deny that's gotta be a wig. No way no way not perfect. I'd kill for a nice like three inches long beard beard. Yeah Grizzly I can't grow my beard for long because I didn't grow hair in some spots and he has embarrassing. Looks the same way you gotTa team your. You GotTa team you have that problem too so I was the only thing I I'm jealous of you. Guys you guys have sick mustaches.

The guys like are can't grow. Why do you only just realized what they stole? The whole premise for Mars attack place. Actually they did the loud pit all my God. He's the Martian Russian. Yeah Krzyzewski is a fucking hackers. No I respect that because he watches movies. And he's it's a callback you know and you know what he did he took it as a serious manner whack whacking say. What if this really dumb idea was actually different? You guys think when you walk out of personal how long last quiet place in Mars attacks the only t movies or sound sound defeated the enemy in science water and Was it of us wasn't water now. Inside there was a baseball bat to the. Yeah she went to belts. Oh Yeah you went toe to Toe Annapolis Kinda stupid Joaquin Phoenix Right. Yeah Mel Gibson's brother. Great casting for for those two. I was confused signs and scary movie three. I always thought there's a whole bunch of movies. Scary movie just messed up bright enough. It's from the garage. The jury scary movie like wore. The world's yeah. I've seen the movie when I if I think about it right now I think of what song do they play. I I forgot. That's going to bother me so much. That the woman zombies like grandma. I think I think that's where Kevin Hart Kevin Hart and Anthony Anderson Doing. Yeah yeah the the debate about the rat the general philosophical. Yeah you live on this side. But if you're living over there what are they going to make the game. I'll tell you what world what's that movie called we're quietly sequel. Make another scary movie actually. Yeah you know it's a funny spoof. They did you mentioned the other day. the boys in the Hood Spoof. Oh yeah it'll be medicine in south central while I watch the last night the scene where he's filling out the application sex the basic income one million dollars so pointing like those movies. How scary movies ones where? What's your pretty funny? But then they were like like epic movies spoof. Movie is truly dead. It's I think it's because of the Internet. Everything's being spoofed constantly. Can we do it. And I'm like to your backyard. Something no we already tried that and it was terrible but every movie no we're not doing a spoof movie. I thought you said you didn't want in your backyard. We tried to film something in my backyard. Took like three days three days as avenue to our street and it all amounted to nothing. I had two bags of subway that I couldn't so hungry the end of the night. They log now. I know but the Internet's kill the spoof movie because everything's always being parodied constantly on twitter Vine Youtube looking topical Reference Vine Reference. While Tick Tock now you see about the the whole tick tock now with any American like secret service. They can't use it. 'cause it's a Chinese based website as seen as a cyber threat tick tock secret service it should be on. The military is a weird place man. I was just doing dress on something else. That's good because when I took talk like when I came matter just a bunch of cops and army people being way too horny on the APP. They're like doing like third SCHRAFFT's and everything not just not on tectonic. No no just with the whole thing just real quick you see the whole. NBA All star voting. Yeah Caruso and Taco Fall. The whole thing is just kills everything Talka- The falls played eleven minutes. I think that has happened before in the NBA. Yao Ming shouldn't have been an all-star his rookie year and he was he was a starter. It's because the entire country road form. Well we'll hockey. John Squawk voted and he was like perennial fort. Line healthy scratch. It was like a fighter though right. Yeah Yeah and he ended up like and he won the MVP they did. Your goals yet happens sometimes even when Kyle Korver made it a couple years ago I was like okay all right so so Yeah we asked who would turn around tagline turn down the volume we started talking about adequately soon ended with Kyle korver making. How the fuck did we get on there to that? Talent brought up to smooth movie and then we just listened to the podcast. Let's just move forward here to Wanda Vision. WanNa Vision the Disney Plush L. Starring Scarlett which end vision is being moved up. That's why they call it that. Wow that's both of their names. Yeah it's been moved out to to Twenty twenty this year. It's coming out this year. Money Hungry Right now. I think it's an answer to the mandatory and Don and everyone's like well. Why do I have this at full of kids movies? No no no no we wanted to visit. It's coming out and that's is a big appeal. That's the big draw. That's got to be a good sign right. Usually things are pushed back because they're not coming out so well so maybe this is just been full. Steam ahead the wrapping it up. They have to be so they're probably going into post production soon and this is a show. I'm excited for it because it's going to be connected to doctor strange to so and we've had kind of a drought route for marvel stuff right. What's the last movie Spiderman Spiderman. Yeah so it's going to be about six months or any. I'm excited to see vision because I feel like we didn't get enough. Offer him in movies and certainly nice to see him in this. Yeah they say that. That relationship is very underdeveloped. So is this going to be when they left. I forget I think it's GonNa be Postman. I think it's GONNA be post. Because he's not dead that they could definitely bring them back and some way she has to be shit. Yeah she's powerful enough. He's got to be in school and Viz mashes the boss us Wanted Envision I'm interested interested to see how like the structure of it all because everything coming out from it so far it's like they're saying some some of the scenes are are GonNa be in front of a live studio audience so seven is going to be going to be like czar. Yeah I like the ultimate reality the sound effects and everything. Yeah that some scenes are going to be like Sitcom. But it's an all-powerful. which and a robot? Maybe maybe it's vision again. The job his job while there's a comic where vision creates his own and family he builds an android family. And it's like that it's like them trying to be a middle class family in Washington. DC Hi five hundred percent going to be seen. He's in a comment. After a long day of work briefcase hang up at home. It's good and the kids. Say something like mom meatloaf tonight. It's like Oh thank thank God tastebuds there's some noxious person you can hear. The neighbors have like Awadhi neighbor. That comes in. Yeah all going to be all the shovel then. Yeah who's the neighboring failure. Parents did think Oberg birth. I just thought of that. When you said the burst let me show you need a wag? There's Flanders Dunkelberg the big heads in Rocco's modern life. Yeah I think Bo Jack does that the best when they do. The flashback axiom when he was on the Sitcom and they always have those punch lines. Visions daughter's going to have a catchphrase too much man bought and then the crowd just laughs. Yeah and then the closing credits come out like really like just go straight always Philidelphia. Are you guys considering describing because Lawrence over. I'm considering it yeah. I wonder how much they lost. I think the simpsons is keeping me on not lizzy Z.. McGuire in Illinois. I'm intrigued yeah I might give it a I might like watch the little review when you scroll on something and they give you like a preview. I am obsessed with doing the auto I do on. Fox Scroll through and watch all the highlights. You don't need to wash. That was true. You know you see everything you need to see right. I was actually watching. Revenge of the CIFS jailer. It came on like my youtube recommendations so I watch it because I like to watch old trailers. That's just straight up. Give you the whole movie in that one. Well you know what you're getting. I know but you can still leave a couple of surprises prizes. They give you everything new. It's a crazy time back in. Why flop did now? Thanks to the most critically. Yeah that's why was a disaster. Well apparently we're also getting Falcon and the winter soldier this year. I'm excited for those. That looks cool. I love extension of captain. That's in America. The winter soldier movie just kind of that kind of what the Fuck Street level. Yeah Yeah Like spy what I want to say. I've had the word I know. I know the word Roller no Ninja. No start with Onomatopoeia. Did he bob. What wow? It's a fine. I'm like reaching in going around. Looking for the word WANNA espionage thriller. Daughter is going to be better. There's GonNa be a better word. It's a good word now. Brian is trying to tell Jerry. The family guy. Brian was trying to do that. Somebody got somebody pregnant. And he's like we're owned by Disney. Now so I'll just say that they wanted the Little Mermaid think think that is so disgusting. Oh No it's GonNa be funny to see these properties how they adapt to being owned by Disney. Because they're saying deadpool three. Oh Yeah Reynolds. Dr Deadpool's mouth. I guess right. You have to man Nash with the Deadpool Shirt you have to trust shirt thank you. Where'd you get? That GONNA says a Christmas gift and I got a flask with deadpool like ripping his shirt off and Nash Paul. I just want to know before we go back on. Your Christmas is presence Teddy think they have to go to door. I liked to go. Radar is just making sure. What else would you get for Christmas? Besides your deadpool merch not much. It's really I actually got everything I got him with everybody here I can make my own toys. That's one one of the funniest things. Well there any other Disney plus shows that you're looking forward to that are coming out Lizzie. McGuire anything else. Space travel stuff right now. They're not gonNA put out like a Netflix type. Original drama looking for but why not the young luke further Canoga. Yeah Wow really everyone saying Sebastian in San. I don't think it's going to be what they're looking for like ten year old. Luke yeah like an eight year old Jacob Tremblay somebody said the kid from Joe Rabbit. We always go jake. Jake always brought up the kid from Joe Rabbit. That'll be interesting. Yeah Paul houser. Yeah you're big Paul Walton House. I think that the Guy Mitchell but I do know Guy Night Tanya I could see him showing up in Star Wars. I think he does have a name. So that's the first one I want for him but that would be a good casting yes really all excited for. Ob won the Disney. The marvel shows they're not gonNA make a fucking I don't know whether the kids like these. Days watchmen breaking bad on Disney plus. That's never going to happen happen. So that's what Sucks Man AG. netflix keeps fucking shit out. Hopefully it sticks and matching it says he was like now we are going to make a combat that could be like united. I did that with Moon Knight if they took the serious dramatic approach with moonlight. Because that's a character you go with. And that's actually our next story of Daniel Radcliffe is being eyed to play the character so thoughts it's on Daniel Radcliffe playing night and just moonlight overall nationally. Are you familiar moonlight. You probably not. I'm not he's like morals Batman but he's mentally. Ill apparently is like multiple personality analogy disorder. He's got a lot of stuff going on. I just read up on it for the first time in. He's fucking. He's interesting yet no. He's a very fascinating character. I always wanted him to get a movie because they mentioned him in winter soldier. We're actually when they mentioned what the rhythm who the algorithm is targeting. They mentioned. His name is mark. Spector will radcliff. I'll a bad actor I think he's great eight though but like the casting. There's news that they wanted a Jewish Zach. Ephron type you know as a Jewish Zac Efron type you Zach Ephron sack doc Ephron thank you ted. High praise to hear what happened on. English is freaking. Wait what happens. He's filming a documentary. Where in some kind of trying to kill Zach? Ephron was the name of the documentary or killing. Zack Ephron Wall. That's like some biggie. Yeah died died life after death and got hit by a poisoned something. I don't know I don't know I saw the twitter moment and I'm like yeah. He got some now from what I heard. He got some bacterial infection and he had to go on a life or death plane. Yeah Yeah Okay. Yeah Yeah I don't know if I'd rather others acuff Ron and Daniel Radcliffe. They had the perfect Zach after like we need like Kazak F rom type interest free. If only there was another second ron on a room for Charlotte Bom to that will be the Catholic. That's a guy. Go with Oscar until her job. I really liked Charlotte. Both I like him like in the Shiloh buff but this would be perfect for him because he's out of his mind so as Muna naturally shallow. He's good he's great with his face. He's we saw twitchy watching child. I always feel like he likes whatever he's doing. Yeah Peanut Butter Falcon. You just saw that and that is the Charlotte buff movie. He's also scrubs absolutely not a lot of talk for that for Award season did that was really fucking good movie I think towards the end maybe but yet DEIDRA. I don't think he's bad. He's got the Costanza effect. See the Moon Knight. Yeah don't do I see him and say I don't know I don't I see Radcliffe. Is more the Harry Potter. He'd be great. I only know him from the Harry potters and women black jungle. filmography while you're at it. He's got a pretty big one. Yes Broadway succeed in Business Steve Shemi. TBS Vehicle Yeah. Don't don't say that sentence is awful. The Stephen Chevy TVs. Yeah he's Stephen God. Well now. It's like an anthology now. They had the same cast. But now it's totally different story. Yeah so Steve Shami though does he carry over though maybe he he's still he's not God but he's the same way. That's a new story with American horror story type deal. Oh like the treaty Texas opposite had fish Emmy what a career American horror story. CanNot dammit. Why anybody else WanNa see as Moon Knight? We'll go. I mean I think he could be the best thing that Disney does take a real serious approach because I mean the award shows. They love stories like this. They love when people deal with characters with mental illness. who were trying to battle that and it's better if you put it within the superior world? That's the interesting thing with Moon Knight because the comics they play with is he mentally ill or is he being possessed by an Egyptian God. You don't know fees. Does he have superpowers or is he just out of his mind. God come from as because part of his character he was like in the two of them right and they found him and like to life he was pretty sure he was like an explorer. Something like that. But he's also he's a billionaire like Batman he's got the playboy personality. Ah Personality Mark Spector. He's also got like a personality where he's an actor randomly. A famous actor goes out of his mind. What about the kid that plays Jonathan and stranger under things? Charlie Heaton I see that yeah. He's kind of got that like no offense. Yeah he's got a weird face. He's good looking team buddies unique looking like Adam driver. I'll take that ooh that'd be that'd be interesting casting. I said that I address. Yeah congratulations you put in two of your career performances and finishes saw war series. What do you WANNA do next? I'm GonNa Play Moon Knight on. Why not doing it? Tell Edison's doing Loki. If he's not doing an Oscar this year no but Tom Medicines a good actor. Good I yeah. I think moonlight would've in yet. I would have been a better movie for me. Yeah I think he's a perfect character. 'cause I hope he's in the movies but it looks like these Disney Sie plus shows are going to cross over with the movies rather than the Netflix shows. Yeah they never did. They never got that chance. WE'RE GONNA Cash Dracula that's like the famous. Why famous but that I was kind of like the clip going not clip comicstrip famous comics ship? That was going around. When they said they were making a Moon Knight Series and it was the Dracula? One right what does he call them. I remember it and it's famous some famous clip. It was good Jacqueline Woodson recalls recalls. Jackie like a punk bitch or whatever like that's cool now they're GONNA WANNA Cash Dracula. WHO'D YOU GET DRACULA ALL GABE from the office? Luke Evans I I love. That came from the office. Yeah I forget he's In Silicon Valley Chad. Okay terrible you mean you know he's a walking dracula you really know is. The walking. Skeleton Jackson told sucks but God Charles Charles Dance and that is a scary I was he dracula usually usually me. He was one of the traffic. You Know Luke Evans was Dracula. What dragons old isn't that? The new one thousand one. That was supposed to kick off the Monster Evans. I know but Charleston. Charles Dell's dances in the movie. And he's like another dracula. I think I feel tutor. Do Jacket when he was like Dracula like tooks he was resigning. They say. God presents a neutral. You Watch yet. Yeah awesome right yeah. It was very good. I knew you'd like that. I wish they would have got an Argentinean actor. Though but Jonah. The price price looks so much like Francis this perfect China the price and Anthony Hopkins going back and forth. Yeah they had some really good scenes. I was surprised by how Good how good the dialogue log was. Yeah there's a very good move and the politics of the church. What a place I'd be? I'd pope up no way. I'm trying to see you like like the whole thing with the Ghetto Gills Pope Francis buckets too much. You always not walking on ice. No he doesn't walk with ease on iced out anymore. Oh ice barrel he really. Yeah so he's cooking up something vehicle fresh though the Pope Mobile. Yeah Oh my God. I wrote down that old. Fresh strolled the streets. Now what's the gas on that. Are you kidding me. You got gas unlimited again. You think they care that thing you have to. What's the mileage on gone off that blood of Christ flipping around the pope mobile they feed G? Well don't talk about abuse. Come on all right. Let's move on. Don't kid around cats. Let's talk about cats. Do we have to. Yeah it's an abomination that everybody kind of agrees is an abomination. I I WANNA see it and see how long it takes for me to walk out onto a game yeah. I'm we should do that. It's like holding your breath it's got to witness it and all its have you seen it.

Were that's a great video game. I'm a how you fucking botch that. That's but cats what do you what do you think and I. I just know the story in just know from what I've heard about the musical like that's not something you adapt. I don't even know what the musical no one does. But as far as just like the people they picked to show like people have said the musical Nicole is horrifying to watch and not no not that scary but that it's just the visual detail. Bizarre mcclay Ms You understand like even like Hamilton like if they ever what to doing in the heights. Alex Awesome because before I saw that trailer. I'm like Hamilton. Like if they ever do make a movie out of it and like how. How did they do that like just trying to? It's a totally different first thing but now they're seeing that can it's very similar and very Lin Manuel Miranda. I mentioned that I saw Hamilton.

And they said like in a tweet That's the most surprising thing I've ever heard in my life like I was fully expecting this movie to be two and a half hours. I'm like Oh shit so as I. It's kind of disappointing but when you think about the story how just kind of one little adventure that can fit all that in there this little adventure in World War One. We're going to bench. They got a little out. Here's what universal pictures. Well you were selling me on them until you told me about that too little. Yeah what do you do to lose his PhD. Because Eddie Murphy. He's Dr Dr Dolittle and doctor on this one but that even give him the respect and the knows he's Dr Dre and this one funny and I don't think he's got any degree mccollum own doctor Dr into trail but it's funny nickname. Dr Drew Eddie Murphy. Got In like Dr Doolittle. That's that's the title the titular doolittle go to college. I'd kill for that power Totally animals fuck. You sign me up for that. I feel like that takes it all the way it goes from your pet to like. Fuck a buddy how you got a conscience conscience and like it's weird. Listen to somebody else bitch about that problem. This is okay like I kind of keep you in this house all day and kind of against your will and you. Are you enjoying the whenever I tell you can be on the street and euthanized by the vet shelters. We think they've been in a house warm house. I already talked to you. Sounds like a conversation. He added in seventh grade roof over your head right food in the fridge. Who the best character fictional characters they can talk to animals along? Yeah he's still mine thornberry. Who else can do it Faulk dolittle Rohingya do A lot really. We're missing so can anybody in Well every Disney princess rocket can rogatory animals memorial I don't know like marijuana as she talked to know the chicken. She goes to the chicken back now. He knows what's going. They talk a little stupid. They understand like entangled little lizard then Ash Ketchum catch him well in the movie I should say so so the animals that he talks back talking. Yeah oh no yeah this animal tall packer. Yeah Oh really. Yeah it's going. Who are let's move on to questions here? Fan Questions first. Questions of twenty twenty so we hope there near the better be This question from Laura Nuno Helu at underscore official any new year's resolutions. Well we did kind of address that in the beginning maybe retouched up on. Yeah you guys completely shot down the entire dear Idea aquaman and Potter but they don't talk back. Tarzan that was does he does talk back these things. He speaks of Moulay Acer if I really had to put maybe a resolution on it twenty twenty boom put it on it put it on me. Let me lay it on. You know because I really don't care but my new year's resolution last year was to be meaner honor thing. I want to be nicer. Such a prick as two dozen nineteen was pricked bow. Okay I'm just going to be cuddly. Will we'll go ahead and little cuddly. I don't know lose weight. You've been doing athletes ten years now. I think I think we're going to do this year. I don't know what what most people do for. Revolutions floss more like like with jewelry or their teeth outta falls awesome more than twenty five thousand four. This question here for Mr Balloon. Hands are the Knicks back. Yeah no full force three in a row right. No shot storming towards the playoff games out. Hey eighteenth coming home suck with the next like if any other team. I like a nice stretch like this. I would jokingly say they're back or whatever with the Knicks. Just there's no shot never. They won't be back until next. Signed big free agent. But I'll tell you what the daily ever since Fidel did go and I'm already talking myself Donnez. Never don't do you never learn. What was the deal that I made the other day for like Lebron's into Brian comment that if we don't get you honest we'll get odd if you don't get them we'll get Lamelo? I figure them and brownies still on the table. Brijuni or we're GONNA sign Jaanus Brian. He's GonNa going to get drafted by us. And Lebron for last year was careers income to the next title. Can Knicks drive like them. We'll be does now. I'll do what I can knicks draft Brownie right now. Next year's pick now unfortunately not we shot Hebron Lebron's skit. They responded well to Mike Miller. All right this is a good question here. Actually from Mick hot MIC. Do you guys think that Disney has to cut ties to their legacy to ever change. What fans will expect from from their movies? I guess this question is basically asking us. We'll Disney ever kind of let go of the family friendly entre nausea. Why would they have you seen have in the box office numbers and they're kind of they've shown over the last ten years or so that they do they'll move away from them because some of the MC does get pretty dramatic matic though because they'll drop it or shy like they may experiment with Dutch will do stuff like that but their main bread and butter will always be Disney Zinni? They've been around for so long and that's the thing they've been such a successful studio for so long that I think that's that's what they sell. That's the product right. That's the brand Disney family family friendly and if they do make that pool there to make sure that everybody knows this is Fox Joe Rally. They'd Bryant touch that. Yeah Yeah exactly. But that's you know Disney made that you're not going to see the Joe Joe Rabbit theme park ride. I would hope not oh also says. PS Aaron suppressed suppressed. Asa Hug from me a hug him and Hellene on the. I'll take that evidence. I'll talk about my feelings. That shit bottled up. We all you know I swear to God man to suppress everything ski pushing it down eventually will come up. And that's how serial killer start. Huggy kiss me I treat you treat you real good. New Year's VOL draft. You kissed them. smooch them right on the old smackers jealous. Just one ellipse. I'll SLOB. Cheek set the fuck. It I try to give a few stepmother of dragons at at Cheam. Beam that Mommy. Have you watched. The witcher wove said the process. That if so what do you think if not do you plan to. I'm working on it. I like it so far. You've watched the whole thing right. Yeah it's a lot of problems with the but it's It's fun and entertaining. I guess seven yeah probably like a six and a half seven. I ended up giving it a seven because it's weird like reviewing viewing movies versus TV. Because I feel like if this was a movie and had all the same problems probably would have been like a fucking four but because it was a long gated and there was something that kept me there to watch each for eight hours in a day. You gotta you gotTa give it up to that for that and it is intriguing and that whole world. Even though they could've done a better job explaining the world for someone who didn't read the books play the Games but it's fun the witcher maybe saying nine people are going into it. I try again Elena to watch it and she wasn't a big fan of it. Let's like this like you know. Enhanced mutant night guy and all these monsters and medieval fantasy world and Dick Shit like that Even though it's not technically all that well speaking of fantasy this questionnaire from Derek at dijon seventeen what are the odds we actually get a winter and twenty twenty come on then. It's funny whenever I get depressed about this. I go back and just read the time line of events of all the announcements that. He's made the wikipedia founder like winter. It's like two thousand and It's a time line V fourteen. It's like two thousand two hundred pages or done. Yeah I think two thousand sixteen was the year where people thought it was really coming. Because that's when he was the most outspoken about four years later working on it. I'm working really hard bro. It's fucking twenty twenty. It's GONNA be nine years Strauss. Twenty eleven yeah. Some are twenty. Eleven's could be nine years. How fast do you think he also read that when it comes out if it comes oh yeah a couple days? I think that's going to be like at least like forty percent of the fan base playing what happens when he drops like that. Just GONNA Open Up. Game of thrones again in terms of like shows and in general this is going to like the last big book drops like this where Harry Potter and I don't remember what that was like. Because it's kind of like the argument when Netflix drops in entire season near the show doesn't have that staying power whereas men Lawrence Week to week. It's been two months of baby. Yoda memes and Mhm People speculating on where the stories go when you drop like a book. I don't know I don't know how long that's going to hold the conscience of the Zeitgeist. You're the show like last year and now that's done on. My Kathy dropped the book. Like what do you do now Mike. We used to be started Book Review Book Club. We might talk about on a podcast definitely will not be angry. I it's gotten to the point where he is seventy years old and you have to wonder how. How much does he have left in them better life? But that's fucking bugs. There's no way we're getting the second book. The last book is never coming out. There's no way I kind of though the the dreamer spring than ever comes. You know what I would do. I'd say that he has a book son. He's waiting till he cracks me as well to put him out now now way. That's what I would do that. Theory's been really but no no way I'd be such a move yet die so you can't enjoy the riches that these bless bucks we'll give you this also the theory that he's done with both of them and He wants to drop them on on a certain birthday. Or I don't know Gillis who knows this question here from Nighthawk. Most anticipated movie of Twenty Twenty. Can't decide between Dune or tenant Dune I would say doing all ten. It looks like it's GonNa blow our minds. Yes I feel like ten. It's going to be like the better movie. Not even yeah I know but I meant like in the sense. That like Dune is just kind of know what. You're getting from Dune where it's GonNa be a fantasy epic before and if this can be done right it'll be cool because we expect what it would it could be. We know it's potential tenant tenants can can win. Best pitcher dude can be like a blade on twenty forty nine where it's fucking just. An absolute spectacle Scott Spectacle to the sectoral and and played around twenty forty nine man. That's almost a perfect movie. But I don't think it would get like the. I think it could be a very similar situation where it probably doomed could possibly should or might be Oscar her nomination and won't get it. Where something like ten it will Nolan? Ville new going head to head this summer. Awesome twenty twenty. What else is coming out soon to gentleman and the gentleman? There's actually a lot not dies coming out. I'm excited for that The woman in the window looks good. Amy Adams Sewell boys for life as she got in touch with you amy Adams yeah what do you mean. 'cause I mean you hit her up along no like he you speak on her a lot. I figured she's she's got to be a listener of this shell right no. You don't think Amy Adams Show you've ever been on twitter my thought to be popping. It's like King Kong. It's like released a snyder at this year. Twenty twenty I think back back whatever. But that's what it's like releases slider undercut Timothy. Shallow may then Amy Adams Gal Govern Oscar those like the three like fan base pushes for films while jail. Major Survey shellman release the. Jj cotton now no ship. You didn't see that no is ready post. They're saying that there's a JJ cut out there. That I think if I go through another one of these. That's what I will. Oh yeah somebody accommodated. They're like please God faulkner not this again Shit and but it was some random reddit user. Now it's trending on twitter the Star Wars fandom. Yesterday with John Boyega he saw that. Now I heard you going scorched earth. which they're going crazy dude? 'cause he was commenting about somebody. He commented on his instagram. Saying that you know all you ray. Lows don't realize that he died Ben Solo died. So Finn Probably got with Ray in the long term and John Boyega responded was like exactly. This person understands that it's on about who gets the case it's about who lays the pipe. Oh my God that everybody was like all the rails were like you're so sexist. You hate women women. Why would you make that comment? It's like this whole fan base that has shipped ray being with somebody. That's tried to killer twice on her takes control of her. And it's like fin the person that's been criticized for being overprotective makes common like that. I love when actors are done with like you could tell like we did these for five six years. Probably what filming getting the role and all that having having to deal with this fan base and finally being free of that and I think for him it is a little personal because he had all that backlash in the beginning when people were like there can't be a black stormtrooper which which was probably the dumbest out. Yeah he was asked aggressively go. Would you ever be like Fin Disney plus out fucking Disney plus Oscar who said the same thing and Oscar. Isaac has been complaining saying that he pushed Disney to make Finn Impo in a relationship and he was like they. I wanted to hear nothing about that. So yeah I mean. It's it sucks for the actors because regardless sleeve daisy readily like. She had to go through people. Like if you tate the rake actor. Don't like senator things that's fine. That's your opinion but when you bring that over to the actual actor themselves Kinda like well casting passing Jala girl was getting after he was a cast i. She was getting so much shit for not being. Yeah so you feel bad for him she she just landed the job of her life. Yeah that's the thing thing. John Lewis I mean. He's one of the main characters and nobody's ships him in Ray. It feels like no all. The focus is on Ray in the villain so he might feel he might take that little personal. It's a weird fan base man it. It sucks but they got mad at the rock for not being handicap. Oh yeah remember our very upset about that at all Bill Burr does stand up it. They're like can you jump onto the shallow end of the pool to play. This dine can we. We should blame star wars fans for like getting upset about things across other phantoms. That have no connection stands really upset about at the Shana Lynch since the worst thing he's Michael Jordan and fantastic over politics. You like Star Wars fans very upset about what the trump trump had to say today policy. Yeah we should do with. Spongebob like he looks like the duck. He's like this and sewers fans mad about so mad about something else. Capital Lower Kenya where stores fence this question ear from CAL Corner Kyle Corner. WHOA most no most embarrassing Teddy Story? Go ooh The hell time he graduation pleasant party and he threw up in my closet. Actually at all I think I think I covered it up with your pillow. They're trying to make it. Look at throw up in there but it was everywhere. Yes I recall. Call all MCI remember when I gave You I was going to get a water bottle and it was vodka. You accusing Moore. Yeah went to go get them water because he was puking thing and I just grade the random water bottle in the backyard and gave it to him and he drinks. He starts jacking acking again. It was it was actually so funny but sorry did that water bottle of vodka I high school party and said he got so blackout and ride home. He he couldn't tell them to get home telling them make a left. That's when I got. I got grounded for like for four months. My Dad beat to Shit. Adamy pupil of this girl's car at a buyer. Meyer knew my daddy pay for a new interior. Wash brand new to the mom didn't want to take me home for the go kept saying no no we have to. We have to hold in a playoff game not hurt. That'll take all what about J. Basketball when we're we're watching petty planning on this one and he has a breakaway and he looks over starts laughing dribbles it off his name. That's funny man you you're gonNA team right. Yeah I don't I remember that. Yeah all right well that does it today for the new two pockets coming on and our national peer pressure alcohol called my story ever is We're real yeah. I thought he was laughing. He's just laughing when you're talking about which one in the coach right right effort varsity basketball train all year and the coach says The hardest working players make the team. Doesn't yeah I understand energizes like you work. The hardest out of everyone talk you. Both teams without a doubt should have made that team we. We did this drill. Where stony describe the drill Jamie the bright on two weeks they socked? It really sucked doc. Being five cents more corrupt than high school sports.

So you're so we will do this. Drill Stony Brook's in the goal of the drill as a team was to get one hundred twenty points shots and layups three three three lap. You timed timed three minutes.

Get, along Little Pok, Mon yet allow gotTa Watch as part of the pump professor network and today Saturday June sixth, two, thousand and twenty, one of your host Ken Pescadora joined by my co host Adam. Tuttle Adam Hi. What's up? POKEMON are the best. They are. Yeah man gotTa Love Your. Kind of love them. All Man Love Mantle poten-. Love it'd be like. Traits, type or water type gotTa Love Them All. The fire. Will Burn you. Burn you, but it's so came in the water. Types of cool. You Damn Man. All right well. We got some stuff to talk about this week. Some exciting stuff, actually we had a new and shield deal. See trailer. We have our release date for Lavar. Break all that down and build up some hype because there's some really exciting stuff that's happening. You know that we kind of caught a glimpse of and It's really really fun and really cool and some new information so definitely. Break all that down we also have the gigantic Max Festival. Come in the sword and shield for the entire month of June, so now is your chance to get caught up with all the existing gigantic Max Pokemon. We'll talk about what to expect in both games. The TC G. Battle Academy is going to be coming out. This is a cool new product aimed at new players, specifically the table, top or board game community so making it real easy to jump into the TC. G.. It's pretty cool, actually I kind of like how they're doing this and it's very very value friendly, so we're talk about that. Twilight Wings Episode Five has been released. This was another really really good episode. Phenomenal storyline, really really exceptional storytelling really enjoyed it and we're gonNA. Continue to recap the CELERION adventure. And then we'll finally do our rewatch of episode ninety seven. Get along little pokemon. So, let's start with a sword and shield. DLC trailer, so we. We kinda got these teaser. Matsch's from POKEMON DOT, com, or on the POKEMON social. You know saying June second, and it showed the sword and shield logo is so you kind of knew where the silhouettes of like I'll of armor and Crown Tundra, so you knew we were getting new information. Typically when they do like a trailer drop. where it's not like a direct, what they would do is you might see the the trailer hit the Japanese Youtube Channel I than in shortly after will the US trailer. So June second, the Japanese trailer comes out right and I have like a tweet ready to go like ready to fire the tweet off just waiting for the US trailer link to come. And it never comes. Not for three days, which was totally bizarre so I, ended up holding off on watching the trailer because I didn't WanNa watch the Japanese trailer at first I was let me watch this for the first time in English, but then I had to break down and watching the Japanese, because I couldn't even get it. But we do we do now have a American trailer or an English trailer, which is really really cool, really exciting. And, we've got a ton of information, but most importantly we have a release date for Lavar June seventeenth. So, we're less than two weeks away because that's pretty quick. Yeah, it's coming up really quick, so make sure that you get this because there's a lot of really cool stuff saw. We're just going to run through some bullet points here of what you can expect and the new and exciting stuff that we kind of pulled away from this trailer and from the press release. So I'll lavar glare Ian Slow Bro. Really, cool design poison psychic type. It has quick draw ability that's announced. We see gigantic amax Venus sore and plastic toys, both with g Max moves. That are gonNA function sort of like charts where it will have damaged that lasts multiple rounds for black toys like against poke him on. That aren't watertight for Venus for against pokemon that aren't grass type pretty cool move. We see her shoe. It has an ability called unseen fists that allows it to deal damage through protect so even g Max like as GM g Max moves. You can deal damage even if your opponent uses protecting. Still get past that really exciting. We see the cream O- Matic, which is this new item that will allow you to upcycle your unwanted items to earn new items like polka balls and some other stuff they promised. Maybe some rare items can be generated through this way as well. This is cool like you just have a surplus of a certain thing. You don't necessarily want to sell it you can just you know kind of like? Change it into I, think up cycles, probably the best way to talk about it, but upcycle into some new items that's coming. we have rate or we saw this in the code not too long ago, but now we have confirmation. This is what you're gonNA. Do you'RE GONNA use to learn tutor moves? We have new moves burning jealousy new fire move. We have a new grass move grassy glides a to new moves I. Like the sounds of those here right burning jealousy. It's sweet sounding. Move Grassy glide to sounds. Cool sounds. Good dance move. And then we have another really cool thing called Max? Soup took what the heck is that they show like this long dinner table with this big super bowl in the middle. And, this could potentially be something like the curry mechanic where you're actually making it like actually getting ingredients and cooking. But, Giving a pokemon Max soup will allow a pokemon. To Gigante Max. So what this, this is big because previously. If you if you want a gigantic Max on had to to catch it from an existing g Max Raid Yep meaning. You couldn't trat. You couldn't pass that g MAX trait down through breeding. But now however. When you give a poke him on Mac soup, and it picks up that ability. You can now breed, so let's you wanna run like a trick. Room him on, and you want zero speed. Pok Mon. You couldn't necessarily get that from a Max raid because there's going to have good IV's so now you can breed for like a zero speed POK. Mon Get the Ivy's that you want, and then give it max soup, so it can g Max. It's pretty exciting so that that's going to be a whole new mechanic. Definitely have ramifications on the competitive scene when it comes to breeding and gigantic spoke among. That's exciting. All that stuff I love armor June seventeenth. Now we have Crown Tundra. This is coming later in the fall. We don't have a date for this yet. But we see a lot of really exciting stuff in the form of new legendary Pokemon. To. New Reggie forms so brand new. Reggie lucky, which is an electric form, crazy, looking thing and in Reggie, draco dragon type Reggie Wow. It looks like a me ball inside of HR's art skull. That's kind like what it looks like really cool design now. Did they give up those names? I didn't see the names. There so the names aren't in the trailer. POLKA DOT COM. There's actual info landing pages on it. They give the details okay. Yeah, so and from the press release. So this is my time and their names, and that's okay. It's Reggie, lucky for the electric one and Reggie Drago. The dragon really cool. Then we see the legendary birds. arcona zapped to smoke zapped. Oh, smoltz galeria informs with new typing. It's Pretty Wild Arctic is psychic. Flying type ZAP does is fighting. Flying type and multipurpose is dark flying type so really cool typing here. All of them also have new signature moves. And the animations on those moves phenomenal looks amazing. They're all they show them on the trailer, really really cool. we also see a couple of new features including the dynamex adventure, which I think is going to be like. I don't want to say a battle tower, but something where you're. You're bringing a team to go up against lots and lots and lots of dynamex pokemon. we see something called the Glaring Star Tournament, Oh, and another really cool feature hidden ability. Starters are now available through mystery gift. Via pokemon home, so you transfer any po-. Come on doesn't matter what Pokemon. It is from sword and shield to home in. The from the switch. Then you log in in the mobile APP. And you open your the mystery gift in the mobile APP and you can get your hidden ability starter in an ultimately. Push that out to your switch, so you have to kind of use the mobile APP and the switch version, so it's a little bit funky but that's how you do that. So tons of information here tons of exciting stuff. On I got to get on that, yeah, I, mean it's. It's really exciting because. We have the date it's it's here. It's pretty much upon us for olive armor. New pokemon new G. Max new abilities new items new mechanics very very exciting. I think that this is really gonNA breathe new life back into sword and shield mean sword and shield has done a really good job of. Updating. Max Raid Battle Pool. A good job of keeping people engaged, but I just think this is gonNA. Turn it up to eleven and people are really going to jump back into the game and you know it's going to be fun. Little Renaissance of having everyone maybe put animal crossing down a little bit, and come back to sword and shield. We'll have. Definitely, it's like I animal crossing has dominated so many switch players time it will be interesting to see if this will have the power to pull people away from animal crossing. We'll have to see I. think it very exciting. I think it will. You still plan on crossing. I've Kinda stepped away, yeah! It's tough like I I WANNA get back into it. It's like you know I kind of picked it up and then I stopped playing like two days and I'm like Oh man. I missed all the stuff like by the time I get back to my, and it's going to be covered in weeds. Everybody's going to be mad and WANNA. Move Out. From what I what I've seen like? I Don I haven't played it, but it's either you. You go gung Ho from the beginning or Jump, in your Gung Ho, and then you kind of drift away, and then once he drift away. It's really hard to to get back in so. I'm definitely not shield got jailed, so you're good. Yeah, just a couple of weeks. And like I said they did announce the gigantic Max Festival at. You want to run through this really quick. This is a really cool opportunity for people to get caught up. We learn about the gigantic Max Festival, which is a new in game event happening right now. featuring just about all of the g Max Pokemon like Ken, said everyone that we've seen so far in in sort we're GONNA get Gondar Kimbler lapis garbage Moore Korva night. Appleton amp for. Forget that he has two forms toxicity sententious scorch grim snarl, alchemy and guerrilla don, and if you have shield going to be chartered butter, free, a champ or beetle, dread, Nah whole, Lonzo Flagpole Santa Kanda low key form toxicity. And Halloween and Cucaracha. So if you missed any of those, now's the time to get them. Absolutely or makes them, too. Yeah Yeah. What's? Once I-. lavar comes out for sure but it. This is cool I know I missed. Gang are so. I'm kind of excited about this to get back in there and get gang are so. Very very cool all right? Let's shift gears Adam over to the TC Jianye guys talked about this on special conditions last week, but tell us about the battling academy, and then you know, break down what it is, and then I'm very anxious to hear your thoughts on on the product itself. Okay, so the TC G. Battle Academy is new product designed to welcome new players, and it's like you said earlier. It was specifically targeted for Board Game Community. Just to introduce them to the G.. By, not only giving them three complete decks to choose from. A game board tutorial guide, an advanced rulebook and accessories They make. It seem like a board game. which will probably make it an easy transition from other board game players into a card game, but this is a POKEMON T C G. Yet, so it's it's like deceiving. It's like hey, we're gonNA. Put you in the game section. But. It's actually a card. Even the box looks like a board game box. Yes, I think that's that's the you know from a gift perspective I think that's where it could really do well, because it looks like a board game, and it looks like this kind of all inclusive self contained game and I think that's what. Many board game players are intimidated by car games because. Most board. Games are inclusive. You buy at once and you're done. Everything you need is in the box. You don't have to buy anything else, but with the TC G. it's very intimidating because you have to keep buying in buying and buying. So this gives you everything you need to play and sets you up for that long and continuous spending, but not you know it's not necessary exactly. Yeah, the three deck options that does come with is Pikachu Charles M. You to? Make it very easy for new players to recognize the characters. Each comes with the guidebook that walks you through how to each list, but they look like the xs that come with them or g XS. You've got. Like just had to get them you to chart, and it does come with Rai to for the other one They're all from hidden fates. which are all in ten, so it's? Like. It's just kind of weird that they're putting these ones in there. There's a limited exclusive release for these at target being available on June twenty first and then available everywhere as of July thirty first. The best part about this is that it's only GonNa Cause Twenty Bucks. That's solid. That's awesome. Twenty Bucks for the whole package like that's That's a pretty rock solid price point I mean even for a board game. I think that's probably the going rate for a board game. Even if you want to buy like monopoly or something like that, it's going to be fifteen twenty bucks, and it's got solid cards. You're not getting generic run of the mill cards. You're getting known cards that are competitive, so it's pretty exciting. Yeah and so like. The board that it comes with a swimming. You know what I mean like a Standard Board Game Board. This is probably going to be like you know. Fold it. Up Into Square. You can fold it out in. It's a two player. Platt affect. It's like it's like the paper plane match that come with the decks, but in board game form which is Pretty Rad actually yeah so twenty bucks. If you think about it, you know. A structure deck is around twelve bucks so. For Twenty dollars. You're getting three structure dex. Andy Very High Quality Board. I'm interested in picking it up I just. I'm just I want to know what other cards are in it. You know I just WanNa. Know I just want to token I think you're gonNA see like some high level competitive cards in here. No, no, not at all but I just WANNA. See like you know if the poison and burn counter are those because I did see pictures, and it's like if those are metal coins like those would be so much cooler to use than the acrylic ones from the trainer boxes right right, so it's like asking the. Token is like metal. That'd be so sweet well. You can get that in the tent. Yeah, so it's like. It's just a toss up. I don't know what the actual contents inside will be. So I I WANNA. Wait until I see. Somebody opened it up on boxing and then get hyped for it. I mean I'm excited. But I definitely want to see what's in IT I. I mean the way I look at. It is for twenty bucks. How could you go wrong? You know what I mean and. You know I have a billion cousins like a billion younger cousins so I look at this as like. This is a solid gift like this is a rock solid gift, so you know I'll probably I'm sure these will be pushed through the holiday season, but I can see myself like picking up. Ten of these things and giving them out to all my cousins. All my nieces and my cousins kids. You know like just bringing him for everybody I could just see that happening I. think that'd be really cool, so yeah I. Mean Twenty Bucks an easy easy gas gift, you know. Yeah, it's awesome. Great Price, point, great, great price point. All right. Shifting gears here to twilight wings. This is the monthly series. The animation series seven episode mini series. This is episode five. simply called Assistant. which is a pretty weird name coming to you know that it really doesn't give us any context, but the episode begins and I I mean look. We had the whole Nessa storyline. Lots of action. This episode! Is All story. And I gotta say the episodes. Just keep getting better I. think this might be my favorite episode to date just because it kept going. I mean these things are only six minutes long. But it's just story after story beat after story after story beaten. It's like man. Things are starting to finally come together, but let's break it down. We we start by seeing a lab. Someone's like furiously typing away to computer young woman. And, she's likes spouting off calculations. There's the scientists who the clipboard trying to keep up. We see a cute little trobisch kind of looking on. Then we see a young chairman rose walk in. And says to the scientists that was typing like you know this is exciting. We have a diamond in the rough. It's It's been hiding here. You know all along. And, he says Oh, who are you like? What's your name adding to the scientists? and. Then it kind of fades out and we see the. interoffice her office on her cell phone. And you see your like agreeing with so much. Yes, yes, yes, we'll take care of it, and then she's pulled away. and. Then we hear like a loudspeaker announcement like a the chairman won't be in the office today, and the place just starts getting all hustle and bustle. And you see Leanna just go to work. You see her on a job site. You see her in the office. You see her in the field like she's just doing like where a million hats and getting it done and rally the employees. And everyone's like really looking up to her. Like what are we? They cut it in like this. This montage with music and it's like so well done. It's like this is very cinematic like it's very reminiscent of what you'd see in a movie. and. It it's just she's demand. Everyone is is looking for her. Everybody wants her attention and she pulls it off like you could tell that. She is really the mastermind of all the goings on and galar. Necessarily chairman rose do I. Don't know, only still don't be. Dude totally totally be especially in this episode. Like if I think one thing. It's like. I? Don't know I feel like it was. It was subtle, but there was definitely some some hints there. Well I'll get to that right now. So in the next scene we see the glaring downtown area. We see a glaring mouth walking which is very timely. Considering just been added spoke, pokemon goes. It was really cool to see him. We see this phenomenal galeria mister mind tap dancing to like a street musician. You know playing the accordion, which is awesome, just animated super well, isn't it? Mr Mr Rhyme. MR RHYME MR I'm. we We also catch on well. If you saw this, there's a quick cameo of. Walking in the back yes. Yes, I saw dark type JIM leader, so he's walking in the back room. It picked up on that. Then in the background Then we see Ileana Meetchairman rose. Who is again? Adam like you always say the connecting the dots the coronate taxi once again in the episode and we see chairman rose standing there next to the coronate taxi sees Leanna, says hey. I'll give you a ride back to the office and. Once they're in the taxi Leeann is shuffling her papers together and on the top of her papers that she has. Is that same drawing? The kid in the hospital gave chairman rose in the beginning of Leon Char's art. Yeah then we have that tying it together. and. Chairman rose even makes a joke like Oh. You know you did a really good job with me not in the office today. It's like it seems like you really You're the one that's running the show. It's like even jokes and alludes to that. And then he makes this kind of like. Creepy like thank you and like stares at Ileana in like a super creepy way, he very creepy, and then she like almost rolls her eyes, just Kinda like looks out the window like yea. I'm stuck in this taxi with you seriously exactly. She's like Yep. Everything's done now. And then as they're flying, they come over a pokemon stadium, which is really cool. There's a dynamex going on dynamex battle going on between Labrador and a colossal. Taxi driver, even comments. He's like Oh man. This is amazing. You know look at these dynamex. Pok Mon and Oriana starts spitting off facts and she's like actually. These are gigantic spoke on. And as she's like spinning off all these facts, we see this really cool fade in. Back to the first scene of the episode of the scientists in the lab that was typing away, spinning off facts to the scientists was in fact, Oriana. So? We just got pretty much a complete origin story for only Anna starting in the laboratory as young worker. Being on top of her game, then knowing all these facts, other people couldn't keep up with her to becoming pretty much the person that's running the nuts and bolts gallery. To the point where she just knows everything, she knows how to run everything and she knows information about the poem on everything I just thought that that transition back to that I seen was absolutely phenomenal, also very creepy, thinking back to it now like that chairman rose was like Hey, who are you? You know what I mean like. The roof exact turn you into a diamond. That was very creepy. and. Then she finally, states like look to the taxi driver like just let's just move on like I'm exhausted. Like I've had a very long day. so it kind of wraps up like that. So the whole episode was really devoted to this character development of leanna. But we don't know why. It was just to prove that she's really the one. In charge of gallagher, or is there something else at play here? I don't know I loved it. Don't get me wrong I. Just don't know what the relevance of. Knowing, the important role of leanna is. And then like they do in just about every episode, there is a teaser for the next episode cuts to like this really ominous. Cemetery scene where we end up seeing Alastair, who's the ghost type JIM leader and the whole gasline ghastly hunter, Ganger kind of crowding around him in this like really quick two or three second tease and boom cuts out credits. So? Very interesting episode. What are what did you think of of of the storyline itself I mean. Literally liberal very well done. On the only thing. I don't know maybe I'm nitpicking but. where you saw the gigantic Max, pokemon battling. The animation just seemed like a little off. And I don't have to explain it other than like. It almost looked like it was like. Choppy. Yeah it was stylized is definitely didn't have the same flow of the other animation in the episode, but I don't necessarily think that that was a concession by the animators I think that was just the style that they chose to depict it. Yeah I mean that's just the only thing I was kind of like. A kind of it kind of like lost me right there, but do you know? Were you able to find a reason why they're telling us so much about Eliana are her backstory like? Is it, just further confuses about chairman rose like that's the only thing I can think of. It's like something's GonNa. Come to a head with Chairman Rose I. Mean obviously you played their sword and shield, so you know. Really, you know what what roses all about, but. It's just bizarre that we only have two episodes of the series left and we kind of have this super funky thing going on I don't get it I. Don't know very cool episode. They'll have very little answers. Yeah, but I thought it was cool that we we did see the coronate taxi I saw I thought it was cool that we did have again to throw back to the original drawing of cars. Are Leon. It's. An Is Alastair going to be the next episode like something around that or Will it be somehow here's? How? We have to wait a month. A month. I know we'll have to see this just came out. No I'm just joking. All right well, we we have to wait a month for that, but we only have to wait about thirty seconds to come back from our break him again All right, let's take a quick break. We'll be back right after this. And we are back from our break. Thank you guys so much for that. We have our Amazon.

The party started our do learn up in three two one go. So. Where do where did we leave off last episode it was. No battles whatsoever right like I remember. They were saying something to the effect of. He's got to you know. He wanted to get get his next orange battle in, but. I think it's been yeah. It was initially was the Tony Tony in Marietto. Yeah. But like it's been like three amid might even before episodes since he last had any kind of. League Challenge League battle. So. I'm anxious to see if we actually get something here in regards to the orange lead, obviously the GS ball. Only comes out every couple episodes to be polished, but that's about it. But we'll have to see. I mean I'm ready for some battles I I've had enough. My patience is wearing thin ash ketchum. Battles, isn't it always? Misty. Seven zero tolerance for Ash. We have battled Music Vita our heroes find themselves trekking across. It looks like they're in the desert. Right so travolta is where they're headed. That's where the next JIM is so Tavita is where they're heading there on an island, but this is like you said. It looks like they're desert, which is a demet Jr departure from what we've seen pretty much. Every island they've been on in the past. Like ten episodes has been like blushing green. With the exception of the pink fruit, but like forest. You know just looked like that here. We see like lofts and canyons and. Now it looks like. Looks like a desert so definitely different than what we've seen. Out Misty being over dramatic. To their kids, they haven't eaten. Why don't they ever like grab food to bring with them? We didn't bags. You think if they. Tell their procam on to hold their food, and then put the pokemon into the POLKA ball it'll. Like hell. Hold. This bag filled with food in. Put Him back in the book. Just tie it on them like a like a bowl or something. That'd be funny. Gay. Could have. Some saying you can give them a champ four bags of groceries the holder. The teams Kado thunderstorm rainstorm and Toga fees just love it. that. Toby's my spirit animal, because through all the madness doesn't matter. It could be like. Walking on a thin piece of steel. Frame of a building twenty stories up like a fall to his death, and he's just like the alliance. So He. Really took care of. Yeah Right. It's like you know stoler Scott gotTA. Make it up to her somehow. Shape units located outside. I want to receive this cluster of Magna my. Kind of. You know. Getting struck by lightning. and. I know it just seems like they're all in position to. Be Hit on purpose. So guilty on I. I gotTa Say Jolting Cry. Here is absolutely hilarious. Just think it's funny though he's like Joel, Joel. Begun like needles that are fired edits opponents, it absorbs charge. So ten thousand volts of electricity say what now. Pilgrim's so how how out of places this like? It looks like a desert and everything but like. You've got a a barrel wagon with cowboy with to the Oregon trail. It's straight up Oregon. Trail. I see Green. Ranch Yep he belied falls. Why do you having? Why do you have a southern accent you? He's from the southerner are involved. From the Southern Orange Islas. I bet chasing after lightning storms must be a really dangerous and exciting job isn't. Who You you bet it is kids? He's like with my rubber tires. Max deal, he's got like a dog whistle. For the Magnum, He's like yeah, well I. Don't have to feed them. I just let them get electrocuted by a thunderstorm. About. Sixty percent chart. So he's like. Taking electricity out of the Magnum ice. He's likes using them. To capture and store. Electricity from the thunderstorms. Animation here so funny. They look they have noth. Think. He's pretty much saying that you know. He's a farmer and he's a farmer. And ultimately electricity farmer. Joe Is, is the is the. Sheepdog the. Catalog. That's cool, though because Magnolia contract with Tila. Like. Please and just they wouldn't be sparked up a little bit and. I had to get them out of pokey balls. Every time we'd missed the and you only have nine of them rant. Zoe nine have nine polka balls. Missy, but it's better forms, and I like the I mean he keeps corner, missy and it keeps triggering because it's like. If. You're going to go through the whole thing of saying missy just her misty. There was more than nine. Magnates. Come on. A straight up like messing with with pitcher q here and like. Poor pitchy like obviously he's distressed, right? He's magna mater like overtaking him. Look how stressed out he is and good ashes reaction. Here all right buddy. NO DUDE HERE'S A. Storm Link What are you talking about? Above. Disney remember that one episode where? Like charged up in my fellow I wonder how many right? Tough. How many times? Just think ash has been shocked. In the enemy like we're, we're one hundred almost one hundred episodes I bet you fifty episodes. He's I was going to say higher because the eighty percent of episodes. Because, it's a common occurrence like. It maybe not directly, but indirectly. House. Urine look I got some beef jerky. It's made out of metal. Metal Jerky. Great. are quit that Sir stuff. He quit that. Sir Stuff, will you're with that missy style? Call me by my name Ethan. So this is funny like he's barely doing anything with the reins of the tutorials, but like the second he gives the reins to ash. It's like a nightmare. Such an amazing ash thing to do. But doesn't have like a million tourists should understand how I know Alvin Bhai now he's got thirty of them. Can we go back to the Safaris on again? That was that was in the the broke the time space continuum. Oh, just like the palm trees in the middle of the desert. Man. It's IT- lightnings way too often. Only happens on this one island. Yea what. Where where's Labrousse? GET HERE The one episode, we don't see lapress. This huge desert island! About to rustle ups right so. WHAT ARE WE Almost ten minutes into the episode before we see team rocket for the first time, and of course they're just spying. them to the bus, but after we aren't they hot. Don't they need? What do you mean juice now man? They got a per diem from the company. Selling their electricity, we just have to figure out how yeah, which is have to figure out how. On let's get just need that. Get Rich Quick Scheme. That's that's team. Rocket Way the get rich quick scheme scheme. Black out there they're saying hey, man, a bunch of Magda might together else. That's easy money. Chance like in a panic in the background. What is it what's happening? They're completely out of power. I was like I was waiting for the phone did. What happens if they don't have? Telephones are electricity for the hospital. They all that. They all faint for real this time like. Did you notice that? He's just in the back of his trailer wagon car thing he's got the video phone. That's like so funny. What's IT connected to Wifi? Scott Electricity look. Told Jolt. What entire nations I know, he actually said Tarnation, which is fantastic. What are they gonNA learn about this off. Balloon Sleek, not a good look, but look at the fantastic. Like roadrunner and Wylie coyote acne brand giant magnet. Where did they get that? You don't even be like. Did they? Just come prepared every single time with every single thing they have. Great! Have the company credit card. What they just bite on. They just were looking and all of a sudden. They must have Amazon fire it. You know it's the which the same day Amazon Delivery Amazon now or whatever? Like man. That I need that giant magnet. You're in luck. And like, don't they know anything about like? Trying to cast, stop there, not just stop there. Don't they? Know Anything? No, the answer's. It doesn't matter what it is. The answer is no. Oh perfectly. Can Dodge a quick attack, but can't can't dodge a slow moving grappling. Got You. GotTa let it go man. It wasn't even squeeze tight. Shocked. Shocked, proof grabber thought it was going to grab ash. VR. Don't. How Pin is. Never thought that attack would work. That see the pin missile should have been. Left. To draw mashes on the ground, but the that pin missile should've shredded the balloon getting. One hundred percent. Is Pretty, funny to the same fate as Pichu at you. It's like arbox falls to the ground. No. It'd be. It'd be nice if he is like poison, needle or pin missile himself. Joel note tackle. Let's just attack. Biggest I know you just got slammed to the ground until I know. Yeah you just fell five stories from a balloon onto the rock ground, but A. Thunderbolt a hole into the balloon, please. It's used up a lot of one attack that. Bach. On I guess he probably never attacked with Jodie. He's traveler he. He's had to defend himself. Yeah I just I don't understand how guilty on was not that strong. It's a level fifteen. Charged up to. Siam tarnishing. Doing ashes taking the initiative those matinee my. Only wish I could make the trip myself. I only wish I want, so we're like. Doesn't he? Need a doctor? Can't just tell the magnum to fly themselves back. Just jolt knows the way. Go. I like though how you could see how big Toro says. cohere. Reminds me of the. Ultrasonic ruling could ride. Your your Toros. I like this. The music here is very Say Majestic or it's like it's like.
