"ashley nicole black" Discussed on The Secret History of the Future

"Vaccines were still heavily emphasized, and the agency pointed out that we have a lot more tools to fight COVID now than we used to. But the new guidelines mark a tonal shift. I asked him who writes about COVID for slate to break him down for me. The basic gist of them is it's no longer, hey, keep your distance, try to do this, do this, et cetera. It's okay. The people who need to figure out how to protect yourselves. Everybody else, just go on with your life. It's part of a change from a more collective approach to weathering the pandemic to an individual one. Breather beware. But what I couldn't tell and what I wanted to ask Tim was whether the CDC was meeting a lot of exhausted Americans where they are, or just throwing up a tans. There's this joke that I saw circulating on Twitter from the comedian Ashley Nicole black. And I actually wanted to read it to you, which is a terrible thing to do to a joke, but I'm going to do it anyway. And she said, right now, the CDC sounds like when we would really get on our mom's nerves and then she'd be like, you know what? Do whatever you want then. And for like a second, you think you won, but you really did not. And I actually laughed out loud when I saw this. Do you, is that a fair assessment? You know, it kind of is. I think that people have pointed it out that there's this potential for a nasty, positive feedback cycle. So to speak, or just a nasty feedback cycle where the CDC just continues to meet people where they are and people just continue to do less and less. And so the CDC continues to recommend less and less and then people do less and less. And then they recommend less and less and pretty soon we're all doing nothing. So I think that there's definitely something to that and that's what a lot of people argue are upset about the CDC is that they're not setting a high bar, right? They're not setting what we should be doing, what's the ideal they are meeting people where they are, so to speak or where they think people are. At the same time, the CDC's head just admitted that they made some, quote, pretty public mistakes handling the pandemic. And called for major reorganization. So today on the show, with Tim as our guide, we're going to take a deep look at the agency that's become a political punching bag. Because maybe we've been expecting the wrong things from them all along. I'm Lizzie O'Leary, and you're listening to what next TBD, a show about technology, power, and how the future will be determined.

"What happened? It became The CW and it was all about Veronica bars. I mean, Gossip Girl and, you know, all those shows that I love too. But yeah, it's like all the black people. You know, homeboys and outer space. All disappeared. So let's talk about another character. And Trinity is a character that I love. This is Ashley Nicole black's spy character named Trinity, who's able to solve crimes, simply because people treat her as if she's invisible. And being overlooked and discounted is a reality for many black women. April Ryan, White House journalist, interviewed her on my podcast. She told the story of a time when misses Obama as First Lady of the United States walked outside The White House, you know, with no disguise or anything and nobody noticed her. And so way of talking about the invisibility of black women. Talk about the importance of Trinity. Yeah, and I think this character that Ashley has created shout out to Ashton Nicole black and her birthday tomorrow. Give her love. Social media. But she is a genius writer and a genius performer, and she came in season one with this character, and she said, basically, she's a CIA's top agent, not only because she's great at what she does, but because she's invisible because she's just a normal looking plus sized black woman. And I think we can't discount what, you know, larger sized black women in this world have to deal with, but also when you have the trifecta of being, you know, not a glamorous movie star. You're plus size and you're black, all of those things render you invisible. To some degree in society. And I think that her commentary is so sharp in the series. And it's so brilliant. And it's so funny, but so poignant. And I love the fact that she made her so good at her job that the invisibility just allowed her to take it to the highest level, but it's such a great biting commentary on society and how we treat people and how we other people and how we literally just ignore a large segment of the population. And I know she's made a lot of people feel seen. Yeah, and I'm not even a black woman, but as a black person, I totally get that. I mean, that segment, that sketch, always resonates with me. You know, The New York Times said that with each episode, or I'm sorry, with each season, a black lease sketch show has become, quote, less interested in lampooning the world than creating its own. So I wonder how has the show evolved from exaggerating the absurdities that black women deal with to bringing audiences into the world they live in? Well, we are calling it the BLC U, which is the black lady cinematic universe. We now have our own. We've created this cadre of characters who have come back season after season or skip seasons, but now going into season four, we know that we have this multiverse to work with, right? So there's different levels where, yes, it's not the end of the world anymore, but spoiler alert, if you haven't seen the finale. It is a world in which doctor hadassah was elected president, although briefly. So it's not the normal world that you and I know. And so in this cinematic universe, basically, characters started to meet, you mentioned slurred words, which was the Scrabble game. That was a sketch where none of our core cast was in it. And then after that we had a sketch called distraction where Trinity actually meets my character Octavia, who had never been in a sketch before, and they meet and team up in this black lady cinematic universe. So what's going to happen now? Avengers style is that all of these characters we know in doctor hadassah's mind controlled world can interact. And so I'm really excited. For those of us who are for those of our audience who have been on the journey with us for three seasons, but even people who have it, you're still going to be able to jump in at any point and get the comedy out of it, but we're rewarding the people who have been with us from just what seemed like lampooning to now creating our own universe, which was always my intention and I'm so lucky that HBO gave me the bandwidth to do that over multiple seasons. Another thing that makes a black lady sketch show so fun to watch is the roster of guest stars who you have come on the show. I was watching the scene the sketch where Nicole comes with her girlfriend and she comes out and Vanessa Williams is her mother. And she screaming about, oh my God, that's disgusting. This is spider behind her. Ashley, sorry, naturally. Yes, yes. And so Vanessa Williams you've had on. Ava duvernay, Michael leger Rodriguez, Michael ealy, just to name a few of the people who have been on the show, how hard is it to convince this they're seeing the spider. How hard is it to convince them to come on a black lady sketch show? Is it even hard? No, it's not hard. I think, you know, I mean, listen, I have people now who are threatening me with bodily injury if they don't get on the show because they've been asking me for years. And I'm like, I only have 6 episodes people, but no, I think I've been in this business a long time. Despite being very young. I garnered a lot as a writer and as a producer and also on camera, but mostly as a writer, I've gained a lot of fans because I've worked with people behind the scenes. And so it feels like to people in their homes. They might be kind of just getting to know me in the past couple of years, but I'm really entrenched, especially in the comedy world, but I don't know, like Vanessa Williams and I did a movie together years ago. We've done two movies together, actually. And so, you know, just through the smallness of the black community in the smallness of Hollywood, we all, you know, I just know a lot of folks and so I just texted Vanessa Williams and was like, when are you back from London? I know you're doing a show. If you want to come do this sketch and I sent her the sketch and she was like, yeah, I mean, that's kind of how it happens. Lance Reddick though, we got through casting through our amazing season three casting director Vicky Thomas, she was like, Lance wants to do a sketch and I was like, I love him. I loved him on the wire. I loved him on fringe. And he was so goofy. He was in that sketch with Vanessa. He's so silly and goofy. And we've become friends. I love him. And so it all just kind of comes together, but I have to give kudos to Angela Bassett, who was the first guest star we booked season one. Who we called colds, our casting office, and I wrote her a letter, and she said, yeah, I'm gonna do it because no one thinks I can be funny. And you know, she'd never been kind of asked to do anything like this before. So once we had her, it was like any guest star we would call. We'd be like, well, Angela Bassett's doing the show. You might want to do it. So, you know, that's, I think it's become a prestige moment for actors who want to come and text on comedy chops. They know we don't punch down. We're not going to make them look stupid. Everyone's going to be funny. Ava duvernay was like, Robin, I'm only doing this for you. You've got 40 minutes, like let's make it happen. And we did, and she was fantastic. And she was like, just so game and like, she's not a performer or a comedian. Like the fact that she came to do that was such an honor for us. And such a testament to the camaraderie and this community and how much people believe in this show and they've always been so cool. We've had literally well over a hundred guest stars in 18 episodes of television and they have all been stellar. Stellar. Truly, can we talk about you for a minute? Sure. How are you? How are you? How are you doing all of this? You're writing your story. You're acting. You're the showrunner. You're the EP. You're doing all of these things in the profile in our paper in The Washington Post. The writer said you get by on four hours of sleep. How do you do it all? Yeah, not a lot of sleep. Look, I think I spent a lot of years in this business being very broke and very bored and very not in demand. And so I think it's like, yo, when the time happens, I'm not gonna waste a moment of it. And people are like, what do you do.

"This has asked me another NPR's hour of puzzles word games and inflatable lawn decorations. I'm Jonathan Colton. Here's your host, ophira eisenberg. Thank you, Jonathan. We are playing games with two very funny people. Ashley Nicole black and Chelsea devonte. All right. Are you ready for another one? Ready. All right, so this one is multiple choice. You're playing against each other, and it's all about brains. Okay. Okay. Ashley, this first one is for you. How much of your brain is water? A, none. It's the original thirst trap. B, 30%, or C, 75%. I think 75%. That is correct. Yes. You know, I know that because my brain is full of water. Dang, you know what? I also learned is that my brain is 75% wine. And that occurred over the past three months. And it's been good for me. I mean, there is water in wine. Water into wine and who are we to go against Jesus? That is true. That's a great thing. That's a great point, Ashley. It's an argument ender for sure. All right, Chelsea. Yes. Your brain doesn't actually freeze during a brain freeze. But it still hurts. Okay. Which of the following remedies is recommended by an article on Johns Hopkins medical. A, eating a spoonful of salt, B, touching your tongue to the roof of your mouth or C, eating ice cream upside down. B, touching your tongue to the roof of your mouth. Yeah, that is absolutely right. Brain freeze is when something cold hits that bundle of nerves in the back of your palate and the idea is that putting your warm tongue in the roof of your mouth will warm up those nerves again. I had no idea. Yeah, it's a bummer I've been eating so much salt when I have braces. Fistfuls of salt, and then I feel really bad. I'm very susceptible to brain phrase. I don't know if that's like a genetic thing. But I don't really get it for you often. Well, are you eating ice cream enough? Is that a problem? Maybe that's it your body's adapted, Jonathan, your body. I mice cold inside, Jimmy. Dead inside. Study him. All right, Ashley, which of the following animals has the highest number of brains, a, the octopus, B, the leech, C, a man who just finished infinite jest. Oh, God. Definitely not see. Because I'll be asked the brain he borrowed from Barnes and nobles. I guess I'm gonna go with a leaf. Ashley, you pick correct 'cause it's the leech, the leech has 32 brains. 32 brains. It's like a con artist. It's like imagine having 32 brains and devoting them just to sucking other people's blood. Here's the answer or something. All right, Chelsea, this is the last one. What task is next to impossible for most people to actually do. A, multitask, B, believe that cauliflower rice is real rice. Or C, empathize. Did you say empathize? Empathy. Oh, I'm so scared that one's gonna be it. I'm so upset that it might for the last four years, not historically. Okay, so listen, I write hard for cauliflower rice. That is some good stuff, and you can't convince me otherwise. You put enough butter in it. Let Chelsea make food for me. Oh yeah, I'm also a very bad cook and I don't know how to do it, so don't listen. Okay. Okay, okay, so here's the thing. I think we can multitask. So I guess I'm gonna say see empathize. I'm happy to tell you that you are incorrect. The answer is multitasking. Most people can actually empathize. It doesn't seem that way, but it is true. Okay. When you say you're multitasking, you're not really, really what's happening is your brain is just switching back and forth very quickly between two things and for most people switching back and forth actually is less efficient at accomplishing those tasks than it would be if we did them first this one and then. I don't know though, when I watch TV and I'm on my phone, I feel like, wow, I'm really multitasking here. I mean, that's mostly tasking. I listened to a true crime podcast while hosting.

"Joining us today from his home studio is Glenn Weldon of NPR's culture desk high Glen. Hey, Linda. And also here from her home on the West Coast is ayesha Harris. Hey ayesha. Hello Linda. Well, I want to say first that I don't know if pages of calendars float to the floor anymore. I don't know if people still do that, but it is the end of the year and we are not going to do any messing around. We are going to get right to it. I am going to go first to Glenn, you have something you want to share. Yeah, it's a moment from a show called Succession on HBO heard of it. It's kind of a critical darling. Every Sunday Night, it drives conversations on one very thin slice of Twitter, so it can make it seem like it's a bigger hit than I think it might actually be. It's about, of course, a family of awful people who run an awful organization an awful corporation. I keep proselytizing about it because there are times I'll admit that I get what the naysayers about to show are saying. I delay watching episodes. Because I might not be in the mood for the dyspeptic churn of it all sometimes, but then a moment like this one I'm about to highlight comes along from the fourth episode of season three. When the character of Tom wams gams played by Matthew mcfadyen, gets to give a little speech to his wife shiv, played by Sarah snook. He is thinking he's going to be a kind of corporate scapegoat. He's going to be the public face of a scandal facing the organization. And he's thinking that he's going to go to prison. Now he's volunteered for that, but now it's starting to hit home. He's doing research about prison life, and this is what he has to say. I so I did a bit of research and I got deep into the prison blocks again. Oh. You know? About toilet wine. And it turns out you can make it from fruit and ketchup, but you have to burp the wine bag as it ferments. And I thought, what if I forget to burp the toilet wine? But the truth is, I'm not. What if I forget to burp the toilet wine? Is when I stood up in my couch and thought, okay, this show was for me, not just an I like this show, but this show was for me as an I feel targeted. I feel seen by this show and I love it. It's one of those moments when the writing and the performance work, not just in tandem, but in synergy. There's something special about that moment for me. It's the guy's Emmys clip. Guaranteed. I'm just picturing Glenn sitting on his couch watching that moment. And looking just like that meme of Leonardo DiCaprio, when he's pointing, his mouth is a game. That's exactly. It's from, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. That's me. Pointing pointing point. And before that, he says he has this whole thing about cold white wine, how much he likes cold, white wine, the first money he gets home from work, and it's like, oh, yes. All right, thank you, Glen Weldon, ayesha Harris. What is your first pick? Well, I'll turn us to a different HBO show. This is a black lady sketch show, which is a really funny sketch show that I think is kind of flown under the radar, but if you know you know. And season two aired earlier this year, the show, if you haven't, if you're not familiar with it, it is created by Robin BD and it features all black women just commenting on so many different things about black culture about social media about just our culture at large. And I think I got really, really smart this season in terms of pinpointing some very specific things when it comes to black culture especially. The clip I want to point to, it involves a debate, two women on each team, and the final question of this debate is which movie should Denzel Washington have won an Oscar for. The two teams have to make their case for the movie that Denzel Washington who has two Oscars, but you know he's a amazing performer. He is a legendary performer. He is Denzel. We just know him as Denzel. And so they are trying to argue for which performance he should have won for. And I especially love this moment from Ashley Nicole black. I want you to just listen to it. Okay, what's the racism? Remember the Titans? No, racism plus mustache. Come on, you know, remember we watched out your house at the time and we had to babysit your little cousin 'cause her daddy was gonna be home late for work, and we was eating bagel bites. We was watching a movie and I was watching and I was like, you know, didn't sound like mad fine in these post war clothes. Remember? Damn it a blue dress. So I just love it because I knew what it was, but it's fun to hear her describe her. And it's like the movie with the racism. It's like, that could have been. It could have been glory, which he won the Oscar for. It could have been the great debate. There's so many movies. And I just really, I encourage everyone to seek out a black baby scout show in general because with sketch shows there's often hits or misses and I think that this show is batting a higher average than the average sketch show. Most of the sketches really work, and even when they don't, you at least see that they're trying to do something interesting or provide interesting commentary. So my first pick is a black lady sketch show. You can find it streaming on HBO Max. Thank you very much. Ayesha Harris. All right, Steven, you have chosen first something that I also enjoyed that we talked about. Yeah, I think when we look back on this era in history, specifically the pandemic and the lockdown, we're gonna be looking for certain pieces of culture that really captured that moment. And I don't think any piece of culture that I have seen so far has captured the moment quite as effectively as Bo Burnham's inside on Netflix. Bo Burnham is a comedian and actor, a filmmaker, a former YouTube star, and so he made inside entirely inside his house during lockdown. And it's full of funny and silly songs, but also a lot of ache and worry and spiraling and darkness. And it adds up to this really fascinating viewing experience. And we're talking on this show about moments and the moment from this show that I have probably picked over more than any other over and over again is this moment from a song called white woman's Instagram. He starts out by just laying out cliches from the Instagram pages of white women. And so he's kind of just teasing like here's this throw pillow with a saying on it and here's this perfectly lit picture of my face. And so he's doing this thing where he's kind of lightly mocking.

"The next time. Also sweat check. How are we doing pretty good better than last year. We made it. Well thanks again. Oh we're almost there. We're almost at the end of the show. But first our chasers chasers are the good stuff that how the batch shit go down easier starting with do better white people where we highlight some anti-racism resources and other actions. We can take to make our world a little bit better berry highlighting. Since our last episode there was a horrible law that passed in texas. And i noticed that a lot of people were posting really great resources during that week and since then it's kinda teetered off so i just wanted to remind people that just because that news cycle might be over doesn't mean that the people who are in texas are suddenly having access to abortions. They're not And so. I wanted to shout out a couple organizations. There's abortion funds dot org. Which helps you find abortion funds that are local to you. You could also volunteer with them. Donate there is also an act blue link that we will put in our show notes which specifically goes out to texas funds And then i wanted to shout. An organization called sister song which is a southern based national membership organization That that is led by sixteen organizations of women of color from four mini communities so native american african american latino and asian american So those are just a couple of different organizations that you can reach out to volunteer with donate to and Yeah just wanted to shut those things out beautiful all right.

"Hair wrath law likes sick apology and all the comments which are mike. It's too late. We jumped on what you're apologizing for. This is so far. I love that. The apology is just so vague. That you don't even get a similar magic youtuber drama that i am so uninvested in but like their hour long videos of youtubers like fighting with one another and it's fascinating to me and i have no investment in the drama. I don't know where the like feud started. But somehow i am like ours deep into these these videos. This is where i start to feel like. The first time i felt old has been snapchat. Came out and i was like. I just don't know how what's enjoyable out. This and this is what being this and now someone once. I tweeted something that upset them and they made a forty five minute youtube video. About how much one between the at the investment of time. I can't even invest the time to watch this video and it's about me like what you the fact that you have forty five minutes to spend on once. Tweet that upset. You just doesn't compute with how life works for me or anyone. I know and riot in. That's the negative version the positive versions like tick-tock as he these amazing tax but they clearly spent hours choreographing and learning dances in editing video. And i'm like. I just can't fathom what it is to have this much time to invest in making thirty five seconds of content even though i love the constant. It's amazing right but like you. I've tried to learn to talk dance with once. Spent like two minutes. And i was like i'm not learning at. Dan is paid now. That is the difference. We're like the youtuber thing you know. They invest a lot of energy. And making like these hour long videos and going like through the receipts. Were they fight with one another. But also it's like heavily monetize and they probably make like tens of thousands of dollars just on on this video screaming at one another as a viewer though. You're like all right well. I just wasted two hours life. And i actually lost my didn't do work but yeah i'm i'm with you like no point in the last two years. Did i even at tempt a tick tock dance. Which is for the benefit of the community. I did admire you even for trying. That's the level of time that i had dirt kovin. Even despite the three jobs. I did try to death. Yeah i will also say one thing that i love about you is that there are so many there are so many writers and performers that i love and admire and i always their secret is that they're not on twitter but you are also on twitter and i'm like donner how you're able to hold that also in the things that you're capable attention to remind myself that twitter is free like twitter doesn't pay so twitter you're like non monetize thoughts say that is very true. Your pods like a movie about this at like fifty people. Respond girls lethal. Don't speak a movie your you just gave out a money. I yeah. I think it's mostly like as as like a audience member how just as a user As a consumer like going on twitter. I'm like this is taking up too much of my brain energy. Because now i am like i'll follow rabbit hole and get invested in some drama. But i didn't know existed ten minutes earlier and before you know what i've like wasted i've wasted my day. Yeah but it's drama is so it is. Sometimes we talked about this. Last time i used to work at ripon. I remember we talked about this by job. Was i worked in risk management and it would basically be figuring out if someone was scamming groupon and that was back when etorofu posting. Everyone on everything on facebook literally. Be like stoli's odds vended. It is now. I don't know how people do stopped out but it would literally just be like following posts in like figuring out drama like one time to call dated said like someone my credit card because they use by these group is and you look up the groupon in it's like a romantic dinner for two plus Flowers and champagne or whatever and then you go on facebook and it's like oh your husband bought this. He didn't tell you because he went to it with another woman. Like you could literally make your that out on facebook. And so i guess the down the rabbit hole twitter drama like scratches that issue of like if i could just get back to the original thing and find out how this app right so yeah i guess. I just have to find a way to make money from my internet sleuthing. And there's a way yet working for groupon. I really wonder how they do that job. Now because people are smarter. I hope about not just posting their crimes. Overtly yeah i guess so but i don't know i suspect that they're not i sometimes scare myself and this is completely me just telling myself but whenever i match with someone on like a dating app i am able to find them with minimal information and sometimes. It's like i shouldn't be able to do this. This should be. It should be more difficult for me to find someone who's just put their like first initial. But i'm like i have. It's like a compulsion. I have to know. Yeah i become that person in my group of friends like oh. This lady dropped her phone or whatever. I'll text ashley. She'll find her on the internet. It's a skill. the skill is probably just like has enough time to.

"Like every tv. I genuinely feel like. I'm just waiting for your credit to pop up every tv. Show that i'm watching. The whole world is having dinner with normal the now yeah. I really like all by cova anxiety to do for more work i might want. It seems like it's working out unless like you turn off the zoom stab your thoughts before. Because you can't take it anymore but it seems like it's working really tired. I put the zoo like my coffee table on the couch. Literally close a. I just wake directly back working person. Yeah i feel like. I'm inclined to ask the cliche question. Which is how the fuck do do it all. But i feel like oh my my my version of that question will just be like what what is your day. Look like what do you do you. Are you early morning person. Do you wake up and like do you have a routine like what is the. What is the routine well. After the first question it was covert. I do feel like i'm getting too much credit. There was nothing else to do. It's not like they're balancing like an entire family of children bustling socially but i have become an early morning person as aged And also because is hotter in la. You just wake up earlier because like it's just too hot to still be in bed by like seven a m So i like to get up early. That's like my only time to myself so get up early in walk. The dog go to the gym. If i'm like listen to a podcast or have like a ongoing text chat with girlfriends. Like that's when i check in on all of those like fundings and then i usually am if i'm in a writer's room on zoom from like ten to four and then i usually am writing like a feature or pilot or something else at i'll work on from like florida seven and then i take my brain out of my head in a jar. My brain is just like it's like a host like all the way sir sucked out all day i. I'm exhausted just hearing that i like. I mean i guess that is. The root of is the work hours that most people have and me. I'm just like i'm out on comedy shows even like the work is still like sitting around being like. What if this happened was like a fog right right right and i'm always like what if they can't like it's not it's not i i guess so. You know it's not like you know. Hemingway sitting down trying to write the next great american novel. Not that what you are doing. Not hemingway esque. I say this is at another comedy writer. i know. sometimes we're thinking okay. What if this elephant was on a unicycle. Completely valid like a lot of writers and some comedy writers are like invested in the idea that like writing suffering in. Let's say at work. So two o'clock in the morning and suffer for our and i do try to work with people who are just like this should be a good time like sometimes she's late and you may have to stay late. We may have to rewrite something. Something went wrong. It happens like for the most part. We can have a good time while we do this cancer right. I do think that. Also like back in my my buzzfeed days when i was in a room. Full of other people You know oftentimes like the best stuff is the stuff where it's like. You're just trying to make everyone else in the room. Laugh like that is the point. And that's like the best test for like whether something is good and funny is like our is our people in the room cracking up especially when you have that co worker. That's hard to make laugh and when you get them like there's nothing better than that feeling. That's true that's true. That is what. I've been deprived of for the past year because right now i'm just kind of working with the voices in my so i have that person i have the one. That's hard to laugh but that is just the voice in the back of my head but is constantly dogging on me shit. It's an interesting honestly. I have that that that voice is very president. I also was so you. You watched all the marvel movies and in the pandemic. Yeah me too. Yeah i think a lot of people did it was very comforting but had you've never seen them before not really. I think i'd like see one on an airplane by only memory was like you know you're on an airplane. I watch whatever and at some point. I dozed off. And when i woke up they were still having the same fight they had been having and i was like this stuff for me. Yeah i think towards the end like the last couple of movies or the ones where it's just like basically this entire movie and so if you haven't watched all of the first ones it's like why i'm not gonna watch a four hour five right. Yeah once you watch all the first one. It's like all right. I'm invested now all see these people beat one another. Yeah yeah i i. There's so much that i that. I sort of put off that. I feel like the last year i was like okay. Now is the time where we're just gonna watch everything. Yes save anything that's on. Tv there are things that like. Everyone's talking about at unlike. I'm just not eight actually can't invest in that. Just not gonna get it to that Dialogue at they have. It was like well our time. I guess i'll watch all the marta. Louise and then. I will know when people post like dano snapping. I'll know what they mean. John young. That was i know i feel like you have to kind of make the calculation like i am not going to understand everything like everyone at this point like the expectation is that everybody gets every reference and that like you need to be able to weigh in on everything and i. It is freeing to be like. I'm out out on this one but there is a satisfaction in being like i get that there is that it's it's so much there was a mean going around and i went around so much i finally. I have to find out what this is and it was like. Somebody's nest video from their house. Expected to follow the narrative of.

But even now. I'm like i remember even the last time i was on a plane which was like just as i that was like the beginning of things starting to get bad and i was like you. Just become intensely aware of everybody else's mouth in in this enclosed space and. yeah. I don't know i'll ever get back to not being aware of everybody's mouth on an airplane. Actually unrealized love to travel. But now all i can think about is how many people have touched everything like that. See here sitting in so many people it so many people have touched it. Their skin cells are all over it. Every inch of your hotel room is covered in in. Yeah there's something about a you almost just have to embrace the fact that we are all covered in filth at all times once you get past that hurdle. It's like we're all won. We're all part of the human community sherry droplets and skins right right. We're all absolutely disgusting or all. You know god's horrific creations spirit but you get you get Last time okay.

"Taty tidy tidy tidy tidy tied. Well my skin has been not popping a as the kids say as the kids. Don't say the combination of. I dunno alcohol sugar stress humidity. Mask-wearing means that my skin. It's been breakout city gases. Mayor this guy. I'm basically waging dermatological warfare on myself at all times. So i've been thinking a lot about beauty products. Skin care. yes because everybody in their mother has a skincare line. Everyone in their mother does have a skincare line. And my question is how are. They're still new products. How have we not reached the the the edge science on this. I don't understand that being said we will be releasing the unhappy. Our skin care line. They're all doing the same thing which is to make my face. Look like the belly of prize-winning pig just mood and a little wet looking. But here's the deal. There are too many products. Why do we need a fifty step routine a when you just squeeze all these magic ingredients to one bottle that i can jerk off onto my face. With that makes it sound like i'm using the product by jerking off the tiny little pump. Yep yeah do you want to rephrase no. I think it's a good idea staying by eddie way. Let's talk beauty products fast. Shut the fuck up with the word serum is. This isn't an apothecary okay. You're not selling romeo and juliet poison. So that they can kill themselves after hooking up literally once goals. God i just want an intense passionate so that i can take poison that i bought from the local witchdoctor. You're not you're not some mad scientist. Also some of these places. They put their little serum in a bottle with a dropper Like i'm supposed to feel like little chemists. What i have places to be time to manage the entire science lab just to get rid of my oily teased zone Why are there powders and creams. Can't we just decide on one medium for applying stuff to my face dry or what. I can't have both. I can't have both and then some of them are are literal liquids that i'm supposed to dab on with little maxi pad or cotton ball. Do you know the little circle maxi pads you use. Here's how i feel about all makeup and skin care. You should just be able to apply with your fingers. I think it's ridiculous Asked me to put it on anything else to then apply to my face and like no. What else are these boys for. I'm pointing to my hands. Then they're are those things i mean. There's brushes obviously and there's about a thousand different shapes of of makeup brush. Oh yeah and there are ones that like uv like fucking clean themselves. Because then you start thinking about like they. You have to clean the thing that cleans you Yeah you have a makeup brush sitting on your sink in the bathroom. Guess what shit particles alrosa brush now and then they have those little Foam plugs he has stuff yet. Which apparently you have to get wet first and then squeeze it and then use it. I don't know man. I've watched like to youtube videos. One is an astringent. Even i will kill your entire family. You're making i swear to god in astringent. Do you even know what that is. No absolutely not. I think it's like they The the the hairdresser keeps all their instruments. Oh okay spill on like maxi pads commercials and you're supposed to like it. I'm pretty sure which is an astringent And i remember when i was younger and i had like acme in high school. They were like yeah. You kind of rub some astringent on. It definitely made not help at all. It's supposed to be like witch hazel. Is what you use which is just the we heard his name. I don't understand. Why are we calling things what they call them in the fifteen. Hundreds didn't know anything. Was you bring up. The highschool acne treatment did. Remind me that like one of my dumbest moments of all time. It's like a moment that i it will just come to me like once a month. I'll be reminded of this memory. Which is that. I remember that like neutrogena or someone. Put out one of those They put out a face wash. That was marketed. As like waking your skin up. But i thought because the commercials that like actually makes you like feel more awake and my friends saw my bathroom was like oh how is it and i was like. I don't know. I like still feel justice sleepy anyway almost a memory that i would keep that being said there is room in the market for face moisturizer. That literally wakes you up. Yeah believe at this point like fuck. Rub coffee on your face. we're gonna show also. Yeah a speaking of high school. Did you ever use proactiv. I bet you dead now. Didn't i wanted to those commercials. Made me want to use. Yeah there is a day. There was a time when you couldn't go a single day without jessica. Simpson reminding you that your face looks like the bottom of a dentist aquarium. And you know what jessica simpson never mentioned in those commercials that you would absolutely destroy your mom's entire collection of bathroom towel. What is the ingredient in pro. It's like ben. Zoe peroxide or something the literal acid that you're just on your face to burn off you're actually you it. It will die anything that it touches. Good yeah so we. We had that in my house and my mom gets so mad. Because my brother and i would destroy literally and free towel in the bathroom every time because even if you like completely rinse off and then just dry your pay. It's it'll like sucks towels bucks them up. Why don't you say that. Jessica simpson maxed. Nobody knows what the hell toner does. Name one person who knows what toner. And i'll show you a fool okay. Oh you're eating it up aren't you. Aren't you folks out here rubbing toner all over your face like it's paint primer. It's supposed to make a difference when you lather on the rest of your shit. It's not doing anything grow up..

"We've had actually on the pop before we're so happy. She's back to baked with us. We'll get into airline travel feeling old stocking people online so much more. So let's get into it. Let's do it. let's start the show. Oh right horse things. I flat shot about the stupidest most ridiculous worse news. An eighty pound cougar. Okay skinny legend was removed from an apartment in new york city where it was being kept illegally as a pet. The idea of having even a large dog in new york city is unfathomable to me. Even though fat cat. I think is pushing it a little bit and eighty pound wild grown jungle. Cat is a cougar jungle cat. No it's mountain cat mountain lion as i don't think it should be in any apartment. No absolutely not especially new york. No i also just does it. Did it say where what neighborhood this was in for some reason. I'm getting like upper east side vibes. Sure like took my cougar for a while. Yeah yeah jock. Got to put on my pearls put on my tr. Cougar has a matching pro pearl. Caller yeah no. It did not say. But the cougar. Its name sasha was just eleven months old race. I don't know if they gave the nickname. Sasha after it was surrendered seems weird. Yeah it's like eleven months old. He she probably has a name yeah. She's headed to a wildlife refuge in arkansas. Now but yeah the the humane society. They quoted this guy who was like. Yeah it's always sad to see kuker as you know in. That's not where they belong but really it's sad for the owner so after who grew to love them as pets and now they don't have them anymore and it's like well. They knew they were fully adopting a wild cat. Just like a regular cat. You adopt a dog and it turns out to be an asshole like you fully knew that this this cougar was going to grow up to be a cougar right. Yeah he was like. I've also seen the heartbreak of owners. Like in this case after being sold noxious to wild animal but a false stream that they could make a good ped- who has this dream. No it makes no sense. It makes no sense the owners. Yeah i guess the owner was like sobbing took this. They're they're big away. It's like us what you this is going to happen. Folks i emphathize i understand. I wasn't like pretty similar situation. Because when i was little. My grandma told me that. I adopted anesthesia. Which was this tiger at. The brookfield zoo and i was like. Oh my god. She's my tiger. she's my now. It was just like a donation thing. Where then like you picture of the tiger. But i took it very seriously and i went to the zoo and i. There was like a kid next to me. And i was like that's like no. It's not like we all own this idea right and then i felt the absolute heartbreak so like i understand where this person's coming from but like anesthesia was at the zoos in my home. I also loved that. They quoted a department of environmental conservation. Commissioner named basil saito's great name love it and basil clarified. That cougars may look cute and cuddly. When they're young but these animals can grow up to be unpredictable and dangerous. I would like to reframe that sleight at it. It's not that these animals can grow up to be unpredictable and dangerous. It's that these animals will grow talked about that. Okay basil. i mean. I've seen born free. I get it but like the beginning of born. Free is a lion attacking. So i remember that at all. That's the beginning of the film. I don't know born free on.

"Ended up fully screaming at people on the street. Great i mean to be fair. He deserved it. I was biking. I was right at the end of my block. I was not paying attention. I went through red totally my fault. A guy was stepping off a like a middle aged white guy smaller than me. So i think subconsciously i was like i can take him if i needed to. He was stepping off the curb. I went behind him. I didn't cut him off in front. I went behind him. And i was like oh and he was like you went behind him less. I didn't even cut him off. I won't be hind him and he was like a red light and i was like. Oh yes sorry i apologize. It was my fault it was my bad and then he went bitch and i said hey and then he said bitch again and then i fully became the and i got off my bike and i was like who the fuck do you think you are like. No who do you think an we kept going at it until he actually physically ran away from me calling me white trash chase down the street. I did. I did. But i was like no. If he had said a bitch was a red light. That would have been fine but the fact that he won. I didn't cut him off to. I apologized immediately. And then he called me. I was like no no no not today and it was like seven years of being yelled at on the street just like and never doing anything about it. It just all came out but also it was the same week that we didn't have an unhappy our according so i think it was that pent-up aggression that i'm able to get off my chest john that i'm really get out there. It's what's important to the you. Don't keep it bottled inside. And then i mean but the man deserved it. I did immediately. I like went back. And i apologize to all the guys at the bodega i midwestern for my own. Good then i was like i'm really sorry about and they were all like no. You're in the right. We have done the same thing in this other guy. People suck. and then i started biking way in the night Started sobbing and i went home and withheld by my boyfriend. It's fine i'm fine.
