"byron bowers" Discussed on WTF with Marc Maron Podcast

"You know? I don't know I don't know. Did you get the feeling like we didn't like each other? Would no I wasn't that I I just. I just respect the game nowhere and hopefully I will get to the point where we face each other like. We do now right to me. I don't look at IT I. I guess I've been disrespected. Ikea what I would call. Disrespect IT. So much really. Yeah that And coming from well Born in small time move into the city. Yeah that I learned that you gotta work your way to earn that respect. It was weird because I I always I didn't have any disrespect but I just didn't know I see around but by the time you were coming around you know. I was sort of moving like I was sure. Moving out of the alternative rooms. Yeah and then like you know. I'd see store when he start coming around the store more my God. There's a Byron because I didn't you know I felt like Oh man already. Well this is a Is Perception. It has nothing to do with you right. You're learning about life. It's all you know your own. You handle it anyway. Dramatically yeah projections in perception. Yeah you assume things based on your own broken brain true true but I recognize the pattern. I'm like if I get to a point. Yeah you know I like I just met Jay Z and really. Where'd you meet him at a goal party era after one of the awards show really the Oscars? Because that's where I say we gotta do the pockets and the red carpet. We're both standing there like a couple of comedians. Go and look at this fucking crazy crazy. So that's why I'm at the point where I'm just question everything because you Kinda like happen. Life don't happen as you plan. What happened with Jay Z? I shook his hand and he was just like. Hey but it was quick. Yeah it was one of the interesting handshake. And I'm like yeah. I'm a fan to the Jay Z. Right the way he's shaking. My head is not like a business person but this is like a fan right who? Yeah 'cause I've been through it so many times and then I got reintroduced to him. He's like yeah minimum already. So I'm like okay the same night the same night. Oh you're annoying him. Well part of it is but I'm like oh here we go to each other like we're going to bump into each other. Yeah because to me is like this little right just like when we were going to shows here when we started doing the same show. Yeah nerd melt nerve. Feel like nerd me first time. I saw you. Yeah started nerve Milton. I was in a corner like with everything life. Just watching it for the first time and then Emily Bliss Heart put me on to never meals and I remember when she booked me. And I probably sound like cocky. I was like maybe a good show. I told her that she like all my shows that good. Yeah now okay. I'm sorry right are probably always still did my my lane Yemen. Some wonderful shows hasn't been the same sense is still going on now but seeing the same to me. Just change well. I think that you know. I think that it was built on a faulty premise. To begin with you know the whole nerd melt alternative comedy scene. It had a crowd but it was a trend. It was a fad whereas like you go the comedy store. That's eternal that's true. Even a store was struggling. Destroy Struggle because it was dark fucking shit hole for a long time. But then everybody got proud of it. And you know I'm Brenton you got that social networking going got rid of Tommy and brought Adam in and then fucking Peter took over the place and we all were excited to work. I think we you know our excitement about the store. Brought the people in agree. I mean tell me I was there. I remember meeting Mitzi and shaking hands and you go that far back I mean I got in two thousand and ten or eleven and it wasn't it wasn't a moment that everybody else have getting past store is like is like watching my ex wife leaving a U. Haul and then getting the call that I got past like life is a balance is that will happen. That's what happened yeah. So let's go back so you you you say. Eat where you come from From Atlanta Georgia Atlanta. Yeah and that's where you grew up. I grew up in Atlanta here. Born in Athens Georgia Athens short.

But to I want the band footage. Okay. Footage of us playing nobody. And there were songs we've never played in. I don't think there's very little proof that I was in a band when I came down here. So it would be exciting to let them know. Can only imagine what I look like I'm gonna have to very scary to watch footage. Oh, also young. I mean, there's footage of us. We're ten years old. It's crazy. It's I somebody sent me something from eighty. Six. Yeah. Anyway. Ninety six ninety six in San Francisco. And I was like, whoa. What rep? Why is your bear on stage? So wait, so dated Farris would videotape. Dan cafe shots came big fans, and they came and they. Who dayton-paris big video directors? They are housed. The first one it's Konin Valerie sunshine, John Dayton, and they partner. Sunshine Oscar-nominated as well as the tennis Bhaskar nominated and what else did another one didn't they three films? They did the incredible couple. Have a big television advertising agency. Okay. Yeah. So they would videotape shows from those days they shot for like two years. And then we were sitting with them at the pilot taping of NewsRadio. Oh, sure, they turned and said, we've got some big news. And we like what we're pregnant with twins probably going to have to put the documentary away. And. It's bad in college bananas, and they have foot 'age they came not just to the show. But they remember we went to the great American music lives. So nervous about that.

"I mean, they have to be doing something right because they came up with his great character that you love. So you would want a mortgage quality for the sake of diversity. Here's my line. Just so, you know, I'm all for diversity. I am all for diversity doesn't just mean. Log into a second. I'm all for diversity by not going to get it at the expense of quality. I I people it sounds so dumb. We're talking about comedy. But it's an art form you other Sates art form or or you don't and I do. And if it's an art form. The different rules apply. Then just entertainment. Okay. Part of what matters to our form. Is what the artist wants to put out is more important than fucking what you want. You know, if if arcade fire wants to come with the fuck in Ireland beat and that's what they're into. You can't say you can't do that. Because that's why we want from you. You get what they get. You can critique I don't like it. But never like you shouldn't be able to do this. This is wrong too. If you're an artist your quality of your product has to be. The most important thing. It it. It cannot be mortgaged for no matter. What with that? There are still different things. You might wanna try like, I don't want just to hacky jokes. You know? I'm sure I have some hacky jokes in my repertoire just wanna do those. So I wanna like grow and do different types of things. More honest off more revealing more interesting this hour is going to be all about Judaism. That's something I'm wanting to tackle. But I cannot do that at the expense of quality. I can't just give serious sermon about Judaism for an hour. That's not quality enough for me that would be giving up quality for the sake of of of of something else. Some other my qualities laughs for sure. I can give up some laughs. If it's something super interesting. But you know, you have to think about what you're line is think about it not just randomly go into it. So I do want diversity and not just say now not just of race or gender. That's how a diversity is to me. When LIZA that our story on this is not happening. It wasn't so much as she was a woman, but she was also telling a story of young person. You know, really a drunk really what her story was drunk wreck. And it was great. I loved it. But like always. Black man who went to prison doesn't have that story in them. And. Let's see who else. Big j doesn't have either those stories and Andrew w k has a separate. Experience. So I wanna diversity of experience always a deacon Byron Bowers where they're both black men have very different upbringings. You know? Oh, and Gary Owens, excuse me has more similar upbringing. Two. Girls, a black comics what I'm say, he does black comedy. He even though he's white. So as race is not as interesting to me as his experience, Jim Jefferies growing up in stralia beating fuck and. Oh, here's a better example Solomon Giorgio who's talked about seeing as mom fucking slice. Open. A cow's neck in the story. I mean, that's a way different life experience. Then all these Dc going to prison and awaiting a of my stories never grew up in a rural area like that fucking Africa Jesus. You understand? So my race doesn't really matter as much to me. As different experiences. But. Those are sometimes linked, you know, the black experience, it's not all them. But it is some of them. It's many of them and they're different than the white experience female experience, though, some overlap. You know, a female basketball player in the WNBA has way more similar experience to a male basketball player than they do to LIZA. You know? But generally, you'll have overlap type stuff upper middle class Jews have a lot of similar experiences. Not all the same. But a lot of similar ones. So that's another thing that goes into a class. So I want that diversity also along with diversity. I the way I'm just saying this because I feel like every once in a while just wanted on record. Along with the diversity of experience. I also want I'm here to entertain that's part of the art form is entertained. I think that's what makes actual art is entertaining while saying your piece..

"They don't. It's. I mean, the museum like that is it's a research collection. It's like a library for insects, so it's it's a place to come for, you know, if you need to get something identified, we do stuff like that. I do a lot of identification online on different Facebook groups and things. Right. I mean, there's there's lots of people out there. Take pictures of bugs, and there are good places to get things like that identified. There's, you know, Facebook groups that do that sort of thing. There's bug-eyed there's I naturally, you know, there's, there's a growing community of people who are interested in nature and things like that. So I help where I can for a lot of that sort of thing. Okay. So, yeah, you were saying before that people should if they find an insect and they want to know what it is to like post it and tag you and then you'll chime in and let them know what. Yeah. I mean, if they don't have to tag necessarily, there's a lot of there's a lot of experts online. I mean, if you're. Got an insect and you can take a reasonably good photograph of it. There's lots of online resources for getting that thing identified. Right? Because there's a lot of misinformation. There's a lot of misinformation out there. Yeah, don't want people to to name things incorrectly. Yeah. Okay, sweet and Byron, you got something I've got a question. Like wisdom was the best zoo to go look at six. 'cause I was, I think, all Mahal and they had a dole as insect exhibit, and they had a aunt like air foam that went through the whole really insect place like tunnels are just ants going through as you in. You're walking unremitting everything you're in, and they got these big bulls and big Beatles grab. And they got a lot of very species of cockroaches from various small to them any Anna Joan size books as you that people eat. So like that to me, that's the best. Exhibited in the museum. So you got the insects use my pets and. Yeah, all Mahal was good. Okay, I'm how was good, but that's like that zoo is like a bite. They got a dome inside their tropical dome. Okay. You know, one like that. I mean, there's a number of places that have good insect terrorism in in sectarian and insects things like that. I mean, that's, that's something you have to find them. I mean, they're not going to be. There's not really an awful lot of them, but there's a growing number. I mean, if you Google places you type in something like insect zoo, insectary you can find out if there's some nearby they're, they're, they're actually not that easy to maintain. Sure, yeah. And for the you know, it's also, you know, people got bear in mind how much traffic they're going to bring in. You know, a cage that's got, you know, Tigers in it or display that's got panders or something that's going to bring in a lot more people in a something that's got an ant colony. So true. That's true. You gotta find a place that's got the right attitude towards public education and stuff that'll support something like that. This place also have roaming penguins roaming was March everyday, so they walk them through this on my God. I love that. So I was bird exhibit which is open lot of these places like when they don't like that. Yeah, yeah, bats and stuff was just flying around open a love it, but that Roach roads, things that roses look scary. That's not open. That's that's close. But it's so many of them, they they like on each other and they just kicking mean, but they huge like can't do that. I mean, I'll I'll go and look at it, but I would leave shortly afterwards. He's got to eat when you leave. That's the thing I would take some time. I would. I would probably just wash clean with the penguins, make me feel great, neutralize the whole situation. Okay. Well, yeah, but some you wanna plug buyer and some of the show. Yeah, I'm gonna comedy central this happening. So check that out. Also go to my website, Byron bowels live, and you could at Byron bibles on Google and it will give you to all my social sites. What does this come out?.

I mean, it's like they're colored like the cartoon bees are they're black and yellow stripes is almost no bees that are black and yellow striped like that. Now, the be color that that it's like a brownish it's like a different color, the yellow jackets, very distinct. Maybe that's why they got so famous because their moral renowned killers. They're, they're pretty. They're over a large part of the civilized world. Yeah. Yeah. A lot of people run into a lot of places. Also, what I'm thinking about is called a is called a black boss, I don't know is by name. Well, that one is that one that you're talking about is harmless. Well, those feed on caterpillars Katie did's. So there's like, that looks the scares. Yeah, that looks very harmless. Okay. So caterpillars in the ocean, they look beautiful, but they will kill you.

Why do mosquito bites each? You know about that. That's, that's your Munich system reacting. Okay, so nothing that doing. That's that's what his demeans our take. Antihistamines histamine other sign of the reaction and the you take antihistamines to make that reaction. Go away and then you stop inching. So that's, that's that's just basic biochemistry. Your immune system is like there's something going on here. We need to get more blood to the spot. Okay, so it's it's gets turns red more blood goes in there and itches than that because that reinforces the cycle. When it itches, you scratch at it and scratching makes more blood go to that spot, but isn't it bad inch, non generally. Assign that there's something that your body needs to fight off? No, I know what I'm saying. Once you have the bite and your itchy, don't they tell you not to idiot SCR. To. Yeah. Well, I mean, that's what I mean. Yeah, not discredit. I mean, your body's doing that for a reason. Okay. So you're saying scratch way of? We have medicine now. Okay. So take a taking antihistamine than than scratching is not going to. Okay. I was. I was recently in south Florida. I got bit like five times foot and I stopped myself from inching I from scratching, you know, just told myself like, okay, that's not good for it. Just leave it. It'll go away on its own which it did, but I didn't know whether or not I should scratch. It's so different like bumps that come when you in the south crazy like the size of a quarter yet. Huge. I was very scared. And it depends. I mean, you can also injure yourself by scratching if you're not careful how you doing it, so so a little scratches fine. That's your body's telling you that needs some help there. So, okay, maybe rubbing is better. Don't you like when you like do a little engine rub and like the blood come. Okay, so that's cool. That's pretty much all I got here I have. What's the most dangerous flying insect, you know, you know what that is? Well, in terms of in terms of statistics, it's yellow jackets, okay. Nothing kills more people than yellow jackets on on a year year to year basis. All the other dangerous animals in the world combined don't come close, look, yellow, Jack, thank you. That's all time. He said it was like a movie previous? Yeah, then kills more humans. Well, year, yellow want the statistics. That's the desists. Oh my God. Why do they? Why do they kill so many people? Because it's so easy to stumble into their nests and get them. Provoked. People do it all the time and riding their lawnmowers. They're breaking their yards. They're poking holes. They, they tr- there easily triggered. They attack and big numbers. They sting in large numbers of things at one time. People suffer like kidney failure and things getting large numbers of saying..

I mean, I look what happened through slavery and they pretty much bread very strong group of people. Yeah. I mean, would you wanna choose like stuff for your kid? Like would you want to choose the sex of your child? I wouldn't because it's other issues, like you said, environmental issues that could arise from that. I mean, like you could go through all that twos in which your child like and making his strong and stuff, and that person to end up not liking you. Sure. You just raise the very strong murderer. You know, we're fact factors you just can't in my mind just 'cause I watch movies like the flies stuff. Is it just that weird thing that I don't know what's going to happen? Yeah. Yeah. I would be afraid to choose because of, yes, some weird. I don't know regret that would come later. I would just say whatever happens happens. I guess. But I mean, you got the flip side of the coin if you can eliminate genetic diseases. And I mean, yeah, that's just all sorts of stuff that if we have, you know, if we use it the right way, there's all sorts of positive things come out of it. It's it's, I mean, that's like one of the big Hollywood tropes as you know, science gone wrong. Yeah, you know, if you do the right thing then. Yeah, I don't think that's wrong with that. Then, like you said, is that other side of life to specific, right? Well, people that's athlete. Yeah, I wanted my kid to have. Green is like read stuff like that where it's like, really, they're going to choose, but I don't know. Maybe, I mean, if you're gonna void disease, that's great. So. I have some really dumb questions here that I wrote while watching the movie. What's the biggest flying insect? Do you know some of the Beatles probably be the against heaviest flying. That's what we got around now. Right? Because we got there's certain limitations on that sort of thing limitations. Yeah, oxygen, o back in the carbon-free before they were even flowering plants there, the insects were way bigger. There was a, there's a Dragonfly that had a three foot wingspan. Okay. And the only reason that it could survive back then because the oxygen levels were much much higher because the way insect respiration systems work you, there's an upper limit on how big they can get because they have to get the oxygen to their tissues through diffusion while you know, they don't have a circulatory system that delivers oxygen. Okay. So that puts an upper limit on the size and that upper limit was much bigger back back then. And now it's gotten a lot less. So the biggest insight. Now, the longest ones only like two feet long walking sticks. And then the heaviest ones are some Beatles and Katie did's and things like that. So they don't get very big any more. Thank you, Lucia. Yeah, that's nice. That's good. Awesome. Shit on the missed the man like a big Dragonfly. Remember the movie, the missed? No. Man, you should see that. Okay. That was scary. Shit.

Like killing killing the female who might get? And I was like, man, this is some real like like politics? Yeah, go on in these and he's hives, you know, that's crazy. How often do like like insects like that kill each other? Does that happen? And it doesn't have all that often. Pretty special circumstances per for insects within a species.

You know when females are fighting, that's very rare kind of thing, not very many insects all Queen. There's gotta go down. Somebody laid it only be one later eggs. Don't they do fliers determine the sex also just like some insects determined. Six of the? Yeah, that's something that that bees wasps can do that virtually nothing else. Can they know that? No. Yeah. They, they selectively use sperm or not. If they if they don't use the sperm when they lay eggs, then it comes out mail. And if they do use sperm, then the offspring comes out female.

There's there's all sorts of good ecological reasons to want to have control over that thing. I mean, some of the animals that don't have control over their six ratio or have other ways of doing it, they they can be in trouble if something changes. Like a lot of the things like turtles and crocodiles, its temperature that determines what sex Ed has, you know what it turns into, and so they, you know, a lot of those species, they're having trouble because they're six ratios are getting screwed up.

Are there, are there examples of like what flies can do that displays their strength, even from that small size? Like do they pick stuff up and carry it to somewhere else or like what? There's not that many flies that'll do that sort of thing. That'll pick things up and carrying there are few, okay. There's some flies like carry prey items around. You've if you know what a robber fly is. It's type of predatory fly that hunt other insects in mid air, and they swooped in on them from behind Jeb, their their mouth parts into their necks and inject venom, and and you know, liquefy the insides of their prey. And so they will fly around with prey items that are almost as big as they are. Spies Russia's spies, they're pretty. They're pretty neat robber flies and some look like bees, you, you know, takes an entomologist. Some of these cases to tell it, it's not a be moral because things learn to avoid bees because I don't wanna get stung. Yeah, these flies will turn around and they will attack bees. So we've got an outfit to seek. Yes, so they're robber flies. Those are about the only ones that will go carrying things around, but that's because they're predators. Okay. And that's, that's what you gotta do for that kind of lifestyle. They should be like they should change the name. 'cause Roberts. That sounds like they sound to classic rock. Yeah. Nick? Yeah, spy flies or like, I don't know. He starts seemingly becoming more horny in this film after the Tele pod experience. So I was curious about fly sex habits will when you live for like a week and you got to reproduce within that week. I mean there there is some, you know, there is some truth to the idea flies got a do it or that you know, it's gonna lose its opportunity forever. Right?

"Tickets are fifteen bucks if you're a non member. But if you're a member of California academy of sciences, it's twelve dollars, and I will be there talking with Paul Scheer about blade runner. So that will be an extraordinarily funday for me and probably for you as well if you're there because VR is fun and there's some sort of aquatic dream vision quest that there. I didn't make that up. That's an actual event. It's part of the event which you'd be a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to that. There's also a virtual human emotion lab, which I don't know what that means, but I'm very curious and trippy applications of neuro sky electro found. I can't pronounce this stuff, but I promise you, it's very cool. I've been told it has something to do with holograms, which I'm very interested. In anyways, I'll see you there in San Francisco, August twenty. Third, if you live there and if not, you could drive there or you could fly there or take a boat if you wanted to take a boat on the water or you can take a boat on land, but it's much more difficult I've tried. So I'll see you there and now let's get back to the show. Over. Here we go. Okay. We're back. We've reupped on the receives as right, frozen receives if I'm not mistaken. So if you're listening, you wanna treat, go get yourself, seven frozen reseize, and you'll be prepped. For this? Yeah, a little boost yet a little little sugar boost, speaking of sugar. Perfect segue. Actually, I wanted to talk about that because in the movie he's becoming a fly and he goes crazy for stuff with sugar. He's eating donuts and all kinds of stuff. And so do flies have a craving for sugar that's more than anything else seems like that he did for the kind of flies that are going to be scavengers, which. One of the things that they, you know, you want a little bit of nerd rage their, oh yeah, they they even like try to show a picture of the fly on the computer screen was like just some artist's rendition of a fly. That was not an actual fly was not a real species. I mean, it was not. There was just that was not based. It was a fictitious fly. He himself mentions, you know that about the housefly so he knew what if one housefly was, but that wasn't a houseful that they showed in that graphic. So the computer in general is ridiculous movie. They speak very colloquially with this computer. He just types in random questions, which is kind of, I guess, like an old movie trope about computers. Right? Just asked him. Why is this happening computer answer them when you get. I mean, we have a house fly. They're, they're going to be scavenging on stuff like that. And yeah, they're, they're antennae or tuned in for things that they can get an his easy resources and you know, sweet liquid like that. That'll that'll certainly trigger them and get their attention. Okay. So is it like pooping though they like. That's depends on the fly. I mean, if it's something that lays its eggs in and then that's going to be the only thing that it can smell because it's whole life depends on smell in that resource getting there and lands eggs on just like the flies laid eggs on corpses. That's all that they're in. Tenure does just the smell of a corpse and they're gonna go straight for it. So so do you think like so it depends on the on the fly and where it was born on what it is going to need to reproduce. Okay. So I mean, if it's one that feeds on fruit, it's going to smell fruit, and that's all it's going to be able to smell basically. Wow, it's one that feeds on blood. It's going to have sensors for for tracking infrared and things like that. So they've got, they only got what they need. They don't have a lot of extra sensory apparatus..

So yeah, that was is some stuff down there, man, man. But yeah, they smart. They definitely smart. I've had no idea. We're going to get into this and I love it so much this great, cool stuff. Yeah. Okay. Here's one for you. This is a good one. Am I scared of bees? Wasps Hornets and any flying insects that are slightly bigger than a fly. Okay, is that is correct? I'd ask you for your specialty on it, but, but that's just something I'm scared of. I'm from the south from here. I'm from south Florida. Okay. So we got Hornets. Yeah, we got the big b.'s. We got the yellow jackets. Yup. We got the Hornets where you from. I'm from Georgia. So the Hornets in the yellow jackets, yellow jacket started getting to the scary Luke want you see a hornet. It's like it's like looking at a sports car, like a beefed up. Yeah, man. And that's when you start to scary fright nukes so aggressive in the way they move and they're loud. Yeah, can hear that buzz. I mean, if I'm accurately describing a hornet here, I don't know, but I've seen what I thought was a horrid a few times and it just totally freaked me out, couldn't handle it and they also have these. I don't know if they haven't been Georgia, but they had these like, I don't know what they're called, but basically they look like a cue cockroaches, but they fly also water bugs, wander bugs. Interesting. You know what I'm talking about. That's. American cockroach. Oh, really? Yup. I saw them like arson palmetto bugs. Oh, middle bugs. That's right. They got all sorts of things with that. Then things worldwide at. And that's a that's a past and they can get pretty big and like most most roaches fly. So it's it's only actually exceptional. The ones that don't see how does that to me. That's like a really. There's something just instinctual that it freaks me out that I see that and I just wanna get away from it. I'm so scared just like naturally innately scared. But you have maybe the opposite reaction. I mean, you study this type of stuff. So is there something that like when you were little that you like saw? I don't know horn, just all like that's actually really cool. And I like this. You just get used. You learn, you learn that there's nothing to be afraid of if you know what you're doing. Yeah. But if you know what you're doing, they won't do. They're, they're really not Jim. Well, unless you're Pocono nest generally not going to get attacked by any of those insects you're a way bigger than they are. And they are a lot more afraid of you then. Well, maybe then you should be right. I don't know villian. Yeah, agree to more. You learn about these different things you you become less afraid. No, not unless you make them aggressive, they fear something, then you know that it'll be a problem. You know when it comes to things like honeybees and yellow jackets, yellow jackets are way worse. You know, hunting behind, get this bed wrap. Most of it's based on people getting stung by yellow jackets, polka yellow jacket, hive. You're gonna get stung a lot and they can sing repeatedly honeybees thing once and then dies. So they to be real. That's right. They got muskets.

While I just know that those in that maybe yellow jacket someone is just more more of them out. Right? Yeah. I mean, it's definitely scarier when there's multiple. I mean, at least for me, get freaked out easy. I don't know why. I don't know if it's the sound because the sound kind of terrifies me. I think signed to do that. I mean, that's why they make the sound as the warned things away. They don't wanna have to, you know, sting an attack things if they don't have to, they can frighten you off..

I mean, even dinosaurs had an extra brain in their hips because they were so big once insects, insects, multiple brain. Yeah, there's lots of things that have more than one thing that would well, I mean, didn't know about this depends on how technically you wanna get about the definition of a brain. But I mean there there are things go ganglia and so you know, there's like three things in the front of an insect that are the primary brain, and then there's other ganglia throughout the body that run different parts of the body behind there. So like when if you tear an insect and have the the to have is can still move independently because they both have you know some brain stuff. That's connected to a physical. Virgil. Recently cars got six or seven brains in them. When they started in the seventies car had one brain, that's how feel behind a human, you know? Yes. I mean, our brain is very advanced, but if you split me in half, I'm not gonna. Yeah, I'm debt. How often? So wait a minute. If you tear insect and half, you're telling me they can still survive no period. I mean, they can the burn steel move you can. You can tear lots of, you know, depending not. I'm not encouraging people to go out and do this. But yeah, if you tear an insect depart different, you know, depending on how you do it, the parts survived for a while.

And if you keep feeding it and doing things like that, actually cancer vibe for a long time, it won't be able to feed itself without a head, right? But if you're doing it in a laboratory, you know there there are. Have you done that? No, nothing like that. No, but it's going on some laboratory which he knows about? No, there's there's reasons for doing that. I mean, there's all sorts of medical breakthroughs that come out or research like that. And generally speaking, people are happy when there are medical breakthroughs, you know, even if there is some weird things that go on getting there. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Okay. To kill the species. You gotta understand the species species. You gotta. You gotta kill to break it in head. Parts off and see what happens. See where the brains are at because you never know, could be hiding a brain and it's hip. Oh. All right, right. Rose specialists. If you know any Third Reich, Roach specialists. I want their names. I want that list Doug. According to researchers at NASA, the genes of fruit flies match. What percent of the discovered human disease genes start. Again, it's a confusing sentence according to researchers at NASA, the genes of fruit flies match. What percent of the discovered human disease genes. Diabetes disease, I'm asking for the percent you are. Right, but it is. It's a, it's a disease. I'm just asking, what percent do they match the genes match. For for them to even come out with. It got to be like a high probability like like ninety around ninety. We as you're seventy seven. Did you know that or was that that's that's I would've guessed a little bit lower than that. Okay, because there's a lot of genes fly that aren't in common with humans, bro. It's apprising that there's there's that much overlap. We've been. We've been, we've been separated from them by millions and millions of years of of Lucien. So there's not an awful lot that we still have in common with them. Right? So it's the pricing that there's still much they win though. Evolved the right way. There's a bunch of them. Apparently they use fruit flies in a bunch of studies, their reason for that. Are they closer to us than? No, it's because they really easy to rear in a laboratory and getting ill burrito. Super fast. I mean, it takes a week to go through a generation so you can do a lot of research and especially for stuff that has to do with genetics, they got their genome is pretty well mapped out. So it's it's a good. It's like having a Rosetta Stone, you know, tread translates to a lot of other things. Okay. So you figure that out..

Yeah, that's where that's from. And also it originated from Mel Brooks, Mel Brooks was the producer on this film because they couldn't. I get the funding. They couldn't get the the studio to fund the movie. So they said, listen, you get funding from somewhere else will sign the movie. And so they went to Mel Brooks because he had made a couple other, you know, like non comedy movies before, and he said he'd be down to do it, but he's not gonna tach his name because people will think it's silly. So it was like a secret for a while that he was producing this film. But while talking with Kronenbourg he said that that's how someone should react. Someone should be afraid, be very afraid those.

Pieces just area that was interesting, fingernails fall ear falls off and it's like his face becomes like a fly face. It's really, they did. They wanted to kademi award for the for the effects so.

He comes into the lab and he has a shotgun with him, but it's in pieces. So I thought it was so funny that like he doesn't know what he's encountering. He hasn't seen this fucking thing before, and he's going into this lab with dangerous creature. But his shotgun is in pieces. So we. To go in there and put it down and open it up and start connecting the pieces, make the make the shotgun and then loaded up and then so finally he gets it and he shoots the connector to the to the Tele pod. Well, that's after his arm. Good. That's yeah, I'm skipping over. So. Go ahead. No, I mean you've you should correct me. No, no, definitely. Yes. That stuff that flies user digest their food. It came out of his mouth and melted this guy's arm and his league. Shoes, which is good. Yeah. Yeah, thank God. He's still has nice shoes. And then he. Yeah, so that happens think he's out of the picture. I mean, it just had his hand and foot dissolve, you know, all right. That's the end of that guy. Yeah, he's not coming back. He does come back, saves the day. And really, we've kind of hated him the whole movie kind of seem like a jerk the entire time and then really saves the day, shoots Tele border cable. You know, he comes out and he's like, all fucked up and there's like a mercy kill. That's basically how the movie is that he is like he comes up and you think he's going to attack her, but he's really just so miserable and so defeated. And she, she points shotgun and then she like pointed away like I can't do it, and he grabs the shotgun with his weird fly limb. I'm sure you have a more preate term for that and pointed at his head like end me and she does, and it explodes hamburger, meat everywhere. All over the place. Yeah. The animal gome Joe. Oh, yellow.

Yeah, yeah, very strange. And so he comes through and appears to be fine at first. And so the movie is essentially a series of mutations that he goes through slowly becoming not not a fly, but a a fusion of fly and man he calls Brundle fly because his last name is Brundle, and so he kind of starts to try to figure out how to cure himself, but that doesn't really go anywhere. And then my missing anything ends up pregnant, and she drinks he's have. She has a larvae rights. That's one of the terrible scene gays. Oh my God. That's never going to leave my brain. And then he wants her to guess infuse. He wants to like, do something with her and the baby in together, right? He was a computer, tells them that the only way that he's going to do it as if he loots the DNA with more pure human DNA. Right, right. Which he tries I he goes to a bar because he like, you know, they get into a fight and he kicks out Veronica and they don't need you anymore. You're jealous of me some cause. She's basically saying like Ayman you're turning into a fucking fly something wrong with me. Yeah. Feel better than ever. And so he goes to a bar to try and get a human back to the lab to fuse their DNA so he can be a little more human. That's the point of that. And so. Was more like he wanted them to become superhuman. He didn't realize how screwed up. He was like, I'm better than ever shoot. I can do. Awesome. I want this. I want a woman who's just as awesome as I am and he wouldn't do it. And that's when he ditched her and went for the went, went to the bar lady and been broke, the guy's wrist armrest walk out with the tick. Yeah, yeah. So he goes to a bar and there's a lady that's like dating. I don't know if they're dating, but like she's with this guy and he challenges him. I, he's hitting on this girl which gets the dude upset, and then he's like, hey, you know what? I'll challenge you and if I win, I'm taking your girl girl and I guess she's like, okay, cool. Well, she wasn't that I, when he cared those stills, she's workout. I'm into this. Bard is wrestling anyway. What's up with that? I don't know. Yeah, they were just arm wrestling and then he challenges him and then just completely tears. His hand off of his arm like there's blood and he like, you can hear the bones breaking its way over the top..

"It is biz. Yeah, that's what I heard, and I put it. It was in the regular. It was in the original movie when they screened it and it happened like I don't know three quarters of the way through or something and the audience from there on just said, oh, fuck this guy. We don't care anymore. We don't. We don't want him to win. He's an asshole because he killed his weird monkey cat. So they took it out of movie. That's what they did. Yeah. Because girls, no, I think they love that gross stuff. That's Kronenbourg Gronberg wanna one. Okay. So let's try. Let's try and summarize, just in case people haven't seen it. So it starts off like right away telling you what's going on. It's it's Seth. Brundle who's played by Jeff Goldblum. And his then girlfriend in real life by the way, gene Davis plays Veronica. Who's like a journalist who's working for a science magazine called particle magazine, which is very funny. Is that a real magazine? Do you know about this? Don't think so. Okay. I don't. I don't really know her too. Yeah, I don't. I don't know many signs magazines at all, but anyways, so there it's right away. He's telling her like he's trying to hit on her, right. It's very flirtatious and he's saying I have something that is going to change the world and all these other scientists that you're trying to interview. Don't you know you gotta come see what I'm what I'm dealing with. The model come back to my lab school me to type. It's very strange very forward and they're in the car. He says he gets motion sickness. You guys have motion sickness a little bit about away in Kogaz out there. It's a nice of rawness driving. What when do you get motion sickness. As if I'm sitting in the backseat of a vehicle, you're not Notting like that happens to you to know. I mean, you wouldn't believe some of the things I had to ride in doing feel working like the jungles Guatemalan, stuff like that, you, you get motion, sick, your your break, but no, but no, but I'm all point that out that I got fear of heights. Something necessarily put me up on a ladder or top of tower may tree, and it's like now a little like like we're part of a roller coaster ride on certain card, and I'm gonna get a little. But if I'm driving, I do like no problem pummeled realm engaged. Oh, yeah. Yeah, humble break home bracket. Okay. Cool. Yeah, I don't really get motion sickness, height. I'm not afraid of heights, but it's not my favorite thing to do to be really like high up and look down. I'd rather just not look down. I guess, anyways, they get to his lab. Something really funny happens to me. He starts playing piano. He's got a piano in his lab, and he starts. Saying, like pretty aggressively, like right away. And so that kind of very like show offi, I guess, which made me feel like, well, it's our main character. I'm supposed to care about this guy. And now I kind of feel like he's a prick. So I also wanted to ask you is if you've ever done anything like embarrassing on a first date without realizing it may be like to show off. Yeah, of course. I'm being numerous times..

"I mean, this is we were all independent certain respects. I mean, he works on microscopic wasps. I worked mostly on bees and beetles and other things like that. Got you. Okay. So you found a new species of beetles? Like I have found probably like thirty or forty new species of beetles and about a hundred new species of bees. So yeah, fine them all the time. That's amazing. Yeah, get the name him. No, sometimes I mean, if I'm on the specialist in the group, but most of the time I just farm them out to the person who is the specialist. So if I find a new no fly, then I sent her off to a fly specialist and he names it unless there's no specialist in that group. There's their groups. I wish there's nobody alive who works on them so. And you're the specialist in bees and beetles. You said those are the two groups? I work with the most, but okay, now I pick up other things. Okay. If there's no one alive to work on them and I find something new, it's like, well, all right. I guess that's one on me. A lot of getting credit for species. They didn't even find. It's just handed to. Yeah. Like goals for rebels? Yeah. 'cause you maybe call one of us next time like someone's not around and we could name though. I'd love to name a new species of anything, but I mean, look, you look at somebody like David Attenborough. He's got like, you know, fifty species named air from he didn't discover any of them. There's people name them after him because they think David Attenborough's really cool guy. And you know there's a certain truth to that. I've had species named after me as well, but it's because I'm the one who discovered him, right? It's like, okay, well, we'll give credit to the guy who I found Credit's do. Yeah. Now throwing chain and Berl a little bit, but I like it. No, he's he's got. He's got a lot of good reasons to, you know, name things after him, and you know, pale little respect to him. Okay. But, but maybe you, I guess what we're saying. It depends on whether you're, you're big on the scientific side. Things are the buyer Nyerere huge on the scientific interested in it. Now, like the deeper, we talk about discovering species. Let's get into. I want I want to discuss the movie a little bit. I okay. We're going to get into some hardcore science stuff, but for those that haven't seen the fly thought we could try to summarize the movie. Did you watch it recently? Pretty much. Got a summary of in my head in your head. What does that mean? You talk to yourself. I mean, yeah, you know, you kind of know what goes on and you take that piece and then you run with it. Okay. Like a scripture like you read that one where I got it. I pretty much get the live. Yeah, yeah. So did you see it like earlier in your life and you're like trying to remember it or. I may I seen recently? Yeah, definitely seen recently, but okay. I remember saying earlier and it was like like on some scary like, oh, shit type. Yeah, I saw it like a longtime ago, just rewatch it for the pod and also was freaked out by some parts. I was watching about myself and did not expect. I know. I guess I just assumed the effects wouldn't get to me because it was made eighty six, but I was completely wrong. They are great. It is scary. Is the practical of this gear me? Yeah. Yeah. I love that. I barely noticed mosquitoes in a room like I would never notice a fly in Tele part. I mean, I, it seems like they should have checked for that though. I guess that's one of the big he was drunk. He was drunk. Yeah. Oh, good call. They only the monkeys talk. Yeah. A lot of lives would be saved. Did you see that deleted scene though? No, when they mixed the monkey with the, I read about that. Yeah, monkey castle. Now that was like. Recommend recently when I watched a movie and that was tough watch. 'cause he if I'm not mistaken, the thing he mixes a monkey and a cat because he's trying to find a cure for himself. And then it comes out of this weird monkey cat creature, and he liked beats it with a pipe. That's what basically what have is like animal cruelty..

Man, the Finns or the Miami Dolphins, say dolphins. With them since we go over, fins always say, Miami Dolphins says the New Zealand, the guy from Miami. Listen, man. I wanted to ask you about the fly with Jeff Goldblum you seen that movie. But one of my favorite song writers in the world is names Mike Loyola's, you know, references this movie in his new on his new record, but I've never seen the movie, obviously will what's the new record gold and also what's the reference? It's called the American Egypt. And there's a song where he's like, just like Jeff Goldblum in the movie fly. And he's like, I got pieces of the maybe pieces of the waterfall enough. What would he say? I got an ear falling off me maybe peace in my ear, fallen off me maybe does earful off in the movie? Yes, that's very specific reference to to like, say the actor's name and the movie, the fly. He goes pretty hard on the nose there, but it's great. Do you know any other songs that reference that movie fly? Like an eagle. Which is seal. A seal covered it, but who's the original guy. Yes, Steve Miller band. Now we just call a mill then night. We only say Miller band always say the Steve Miller band. No one goes them. Steve Miller. No one calls them Steve Miller. Brother, keep on, keep it on. I might. Did the movie, get it right. Or will we have to fight. All right. Everybody will go to bed science. I as always I'm your host, Ethan, Edinburgh, and we are here to talk about the nineteen eighty six classic David Kronenbourg movie. The fly joining me today is a wonderful comedian writer actor by Bowers, y'all. How's it going? Man? Not bad in this chocolate right now. Feeling good reece's if I might be specific, you know, advertise, but I guess we can't sponsor. We could get them sponsor now maybe. Okay. Well, yeah, reece's Mavin indiv- years. The only Kenny.

Eminem is is is the close second to recess? Okay. Now that that's clear, I wanna introduce our third guest. Our second guess I'm including myself for some reason. He is the senior museum scientists of the entomology research museum at the university of California. Riverside is Dr Doug Janaka. How's it going? It's going. Okay. I got all that. Yep. Am I missing anything? Did you discover something that we should all know about. Happens pretty regularly there. I got four million specimens and I've worked by plug my way through them all the time, and I average one new species discovered every other week. So yeah, that's about that's. That's just my own stuff. Just poking around my boss discovers like twice as many new species Elmaze though. Yeah, mentor to you, it's well. No..
