I'm not going to be around. I was like, no problem. And then we had to go get Bowe bridges lovely man. Glad I met him but certainly I wrote that role for you. Craig t Nelson my pater Nassar, my hero and Tom Arnold. He was spectacular, right? So good. Yeah. Funny. That movie was good person was great guys. I told you I says, you know, when you get her cracking up, it's just to me, it's just special so phone, you know, now that we have these two kids, I'm really happy that there's a little time capsule of us. When we were like five years today, he doesn't laugh them much anymore. No, no, my God. No. She hasn't lessened sixteen two thousand six. For me. At least other people still have our number as she grown taller. She has she's five eleven now. She's losing quite a few role, but you have one of the more bizarre stories and slowly got a revealed to me over the course of six years on parenthood. Right. First and foremost. Well, the first time I met, you I just loved you. I was just about saying the same thing didn't know who you were at all. Sure. I didn't know anybody what, what show where we doing. Yeah. But when I met you love you right away in, in a when we read the script, we had that cast raining. I gotta tell you just to, as, as a side note. I had this trainer over the house Saturday. Okay. And we were working on gluts shelf gophers. Yeah. And I'm really in something wrong. I've got something that goes up into my thinker. Okay. Hurts so bad. And when I heard across my legs like I know what I'm doing it hurts, and there's a paint and I didn't cry out just now. But inside. I think I'm bleeding now. Are you are you looking for that pop? Like sometimes it might low back in, in buttocks is real tight, and I cross those legs, I'm kinda waiting for op and then some relief of disown ninety four. You knew squad lunges, own my trainer, Adam. He's such a good kid and he thinks I can do things right. Right. Give me things to do. And of course, I'm not going to say. No, right. Because I wanna prove that. I'm okay. And then he's got these things we do. I don't even know what they're called. They're just so fucking paints. Hurts. And I came away from there. And I knew I'd done something. Just didn't feel right? When I was going to the bathroom at that. Going up into my fainter, right? That's a deep workout. Yeah. Yeah. So can I just really quick? So I have a visual what, what is your gear when you work out? Do you have like a little you have special outfit you put on or just stay in blue jeans? It depends on how I'm feeling and how cold it is. Because, you know, you've got to dress up when you get older. Yeah. And if I wanna look thinner, my have a thinner outfit, if I don't really care, because the dog comes in with me, and he looks at me when I'm trying to any kind of gives me the heads up, or the dog, does the heads going keep going, or I think you've reached terminal. So no, I don't have a, I don't have a really I little lemon. A long walk to find as Lulu women that really helps me my visual and story come out in, like just Popper head. And, and when she does do you get a little insecure or does he do feel Manco. No. She, you know, she's the one that pressures me to do it because I'm I'm a slacker, and I figure, I've worked out if I've walked from my chair to the kitchen, and that's a good out there. I never used to feel I because we were racing I trained all the time. Right. It's harder now to get into that rhythm of doing it. It's just clai. And I know I need to do it because I got a lot of things I'm sure going on that I don't know about I don't wanna get tested for him. I don't want to go. What happens is you get older. All you're doing is driving to see doctors. That's what happens and for tests. Right. And then they tell you stuff and it's like, okay listen, I'm seventy five. Do I care bright? And then it's like quality of life. Okay. Well, what quality of life? Can I have with this, or that or this or that, and thin you see stuff on Netflix? Like root cars and you realize and my experience because I did so many bad things. When I was a child that we're going to talk about last week. That destroyed my calcium in my teeth. Oh, and I had a lot of root canals, and they're saying in this documentary, route Qasr that root canals are basically dead tissue that you carrying around that carry bacteria, and it can cause Alzheimer's. I've heard right Alzheimer's. I'm telling you to access like the stuff that they're onto. Yeah. Can't breaks the blood brain barrier in basically infect your brain with, and you've got bacteria in your in your system. That's alive and well, well, I must have Nater nine. Anyway. How many pills are you taking in the morning only I only take supplements? Oh, no. You're not on a statin or anything like cholesterol. Oh, that's. I have to okay. I have one for classroom and one for blockage. Okay. And I don't like it because I've been reading about that anything like that in my system, I wanna be able to monitor my heart attack on my own. Okay. I don't need any kind of additional information, extraneous variables. And I'm not sure about statins. I'm reading about them and the cause and effect hasn't really gone. You know, boom. Boom, is improving so oh tonight, stop taking mine, take Staten, I have you even when you might want to look it up because there's a guy that sane and he's all about inflammation right in, in the body, and that if LeMay Sion's major cause for homeless anywhere in the body, he is saying statins are inflammatory. You know, and so crazy to hear that is the tipping point for me, I had been prescribed it, because I just genetically have high cholesterol, even when I've been like vegan, I have high cholesterol, and what I heard a doctor say, was that it has an overall anti inflammatory quality in that everyone could benefit from being on it, because it reduces inflammation, and now this Turkey saying the opposite. So who are we to believe that's the problem? I know you know, I mean really if you're a very physical person like I was, it seems like ridiculous at all of a sudden, you're susceptible to stuff. Yeah. Well, thing is do some of us gotta ask yourself now they can just find everything which isn't necessarily good surely, like forty years ago. You just never found that stuff. Maybe it was slow movie. Maybe it was fast, moving, maybe discovering. It just makes you worry about it. Which isn't helpful. It's hard to know. Really? Right. What you wanna know you have, and what she'd rather just not know about here. I'm pretty anti-death have been. That's my whim. Women save us, right? Because your wife makes you go. Absolutely. The thing. That is for me alarming in a way is that it's gone by Saddam. And everybody says it just it just went by, like, I remember very early in two parenthood, you told Peter Krause, and he repeats his to me all the time you said, buddy, boy, this is when it just takes off, like a rocket from your your current age right now is just a freight train. It's just flying down the tracks, and he took that to heart, and he's brought it up to me, several times, it blows my mind like, oh, I'm now Peter's age when he was my older brother, I'm parenthood and I remember thinking he was well into his life when we met bright. And then I always think about what you said, right? Yeah. But then I think maybe it's better to never even think about it. But you have you have your girls right now measure, that by and you can take that quality time and blah, blah, blah, and it's funny because you'll. Look at that. And I did in do. And thank you, now it's grandkids and great grandkids for me. Right. And it's what happened. Yeah. Get out of control. Lose your grip on this thing, of course. Yeah. Everybody else. That's you know around my age is going. Where's it going what's happening? Well, my theory on it is, when you're two years old, the year between one and two years old amounts for half of your life. So that year is very significant because it's half of your entire life. And then when you're Tenny goes by, and it's one tenth of your whole life. That's a significant percentage. But when you're seventy five years one seventy fifth of your life. So it just feels fractionally way, smaller totally feeling. It's kind of like what makes it feel fast is that it's in relationship to your age. Yeah. Well, waiting for Christmas when you're a kid is like forever. That's fifteen years. You're waiting or summer summer was like Masui years long. Oh my God for me currently at this pace a year's going. It's fascinating for me, because at seventy five you start reading meal bitch. Chewers more. And you're seeing only actors and the people that identified with, as I cons that are passing and you go. Well, let's see that guy was eighty four game semi. Take care of us. Yeah. What am I gonna baba and then it's like the mortality issues? Come in ten it's, it's very incredibly fast, but don't you and I now Ramar secret society that the real issues just thinking about ourselves thinking about our mortality thinking about how much time is left thinking about blah, blah, blah. Craig needs this Craig wants more years, the thing, that's helping me currently is that I'm so focused on the little girls. Then I'm not hyper aware of how much times blowing by for me and kinda focused on them, which is a big relief. But when they leave the house, I'll be stuck with myself and concentrating. Once again on my own voyage and, and lonely. Yeah, yeah. But no one can fill that void except spiritual. I think yeah, a play can't maybe at times music yet, for temporary right in distract you now, but being of service to people as the great distracter that helps me feel good guidance. Yeah. There's got some guys sponsor that are just incredibly diverse. And funny and isn't it a nice vacation from your mind when you're helping those guys? Yeah. Because it means that I have to put into practice when I'm telling him to do, right. Yeah. How to get through it. All I've had many moments where I was like an advising some newly sober dude. And I'm like you're such fucking hypocrite? You're not doing half of telling him. We are. Such motive anyway. It's action, so. Right. Right. I mean, that's the beauty of and I really don't feel like doing, and I'll do it anyway, because I know enough to. Yes. And I don't have to feel bad about not wanting to do it. Right. So we're going to walk through your life, which is a really fun and exciting voyage. You were born in Spokane Washington. Yeah. Mom was a dancer in dad was a businessman of some variety. He was a he did a lot of things he was too young for the first World War, and too old for the second. And so he worked in the Roosevelt administration in the CCA and civilian conservation corps, also. And he did a lot of stuff that I really don't know about, I wish I had had the time to sit down with him and talk. Because now with been great. Yeah. Did he die young? Yeah. He was sixty five and the ad emphysema. I think he was a great guy. I didn't know in that. Well, because of you. Because or both. Well, he was sick and he was in the back bedroom on oxygen. So growing up. I was ashamed of him, Cheryl. I'm barest by him. Yeah. And kind of scared in a way because I didn't want was going on. They don't tell you anything, right. In spokane. It was very secret everything who you were with the secret. Basically, I wouldn't say it was repressed. It was just Norwegian. The way right? You didn't talk about the neighbors or you gossiped about him. But whatever my mom was an extrovert very gregarious. My dad also had been a drummer and played with Bing Crosby, so they were all friends, and it would have the sing alongs at the house where they'd all get loaded in. They sing around and harmonize and was just wonderful because I can remember the kid being at the top of the stairs in hearing them singing, and then the smell of the booze and cigarettes. I had an older sister. She died when she was forty eight a look at that period with a fun this and in the sadness. Yeah, because he was my dad big Norwegian funny love comedy. So anyway, that was kind of the childhood, and you played sports growing up. Totally I was into sports getting recruited by all the coaches because you were big Dino. I was I was fast. And I love sports. I was coordinated it was. Was the manifestation is child of rage is a lot of rage coming out. Remember getting a lot of trouble for my temper, right? And it would seem to snap anything humiliating to this day. Right. I still have a reaction to that if you're in barest. Yeah. Or you wanna say more made fun of humiliated. And yet, I do it all the time to other people at the worst. Find myself saying something caustic and didn't really mean to go there. But when I hear it, you know, and the people are laughing but they're hurt. Yeah, it's almost like you're you'd if you're a comedian year utilitarian by design, you're gonna make nine people happy at the expensive one person, or one hundred people have the expensive ten and I watch comedy kind of shift to, to becoming more that fun of groups or people. And then it became caustic. Yeah. In the beginning. I mean, Ritchie prior to do it and do it in a way that I don't know was. Off-color funny. Yeah. Again, though, he's a guy who from day, one owned his flaws like no other comedian had. So there's there's an endearing quality to him because he's going. I'm real fucked up to make fun of me. Mike fun of you everyone. Yeah. So anyway, that's so going up. There was it's not a place. I enjoy going back to. Right. Because it's so a such a dichotomy. I mean it was so wonderful in many ways, and so ugly another. We must been popular because you you're outgoing and funny and you're an athlete. So I imagine you're you're popular and then probably felt not popular. Well, that's always going to be the case, isn't it? Yeah. It's never going to be enough. No tax just didn't have any equipment to understand anything. I mean, I'm sure people tried to sit me down and talk to me what was happening. My deck as you're watching this guy. Right. And I can remember some of my friends in high school say may and I really love talking to your dad. You know, because he's so smart. Yeah. And he's, he's so well, read, and I'm thinking really, yeah, so I had this feeling of departure and also a feeling of guilt about not being able to accept him because I didn't understand what was going on. Yeah, this is so fucking common. So Monica, whose parents, her father from India, her mother's second generation, as well, embarrassed by her really lovely parents who are supportive me embarrassed by my dad at all times, because he drank, sometimes aggressive with wait, staff, you know, and, and then mixed with all this shame that I'm not being outwardly loving to him and accepting and all those things. So it's like you're fucked on both sides, basically, you're, you're embarrassed. And you feel shame for all that. I remember you and I talking about it, and I think that you reconciled with your father will as he was dying. We really kind of. Yeah. Got I don't know that without the program. I dad ever come back together. You know, even on on his side on your side, that reattachment would have tried to have happened. Yeah, would've tried to make that happen. Right. But had he still been drinking? I'm sure it would have never I would have never been able to find any forgiveness or anything have, I was so brutally judgmental of him. I mean just more than any human being, I guess I looked at him and all the things I knew pretty flawed about me. I gave him credit for giving me all the things I was fighting wrestling, my ego, Myra Ganz, all these things I had attributed to him. My mom was an angel, and he was the source of all these things. I was fighting. And then, of course now years later. My also everything good about me is him. You know, be have going, and all these things that's him to t-. Yeah. It's a hard one. It kept me from really. When I got into the program of being able to I think, understand, in except a higher power, because any kind of relief. Ship like that. I was always instill him. I think to a large degree. I think I just had a hard time accepting any kind of control in my life because it didn't have any re- s right? I'd run myself into the ground and self well, so that didn't work any kind of relationship with a higher power was for me, kind of really very difficult. And at the same time I blame my higher power for taking my mom and my dad and my sister, right? And I didn't understand any of that. Why do they have to go so young? And here I am abusing myself to the point of absolute debauchery and worse. Yeah. And thinking him having a great time doing. Yeah. At times, I'm sure have a pretty good pretty. You know, gosh, the joy that is, I think, is that I saw in my dad, this wonder for comedy like on the Ed Sullivan show. He loved comedians, and he loved the most eccentric ones, and I saw his acceptance and laughter. And, and this wonder in him, and he was also jazz musician. So he did he loved jazz music. And we'd play records on Sunday morning and he'd get me to beat the pots and pans, and we'd have pancakes, and he'd be go to Trolla any lift up. The army said, did you hear that solo here that, listen it solo? Okay. Put it back down. He said, listen. Here. The beaten rhythm of the Trump guy in the back, or the drummer, or whoever it was. Yeah. And he'd say listen to be in the background wasn't in the foreground, and I thought. Wow. So this is all like kind of us Moses and bring it in, and I'm thinking, okay, I'm coordinated, and I've got timing. And those were the things that as I got into acting because I couldn't do anything else knows Kanada, everything. And really, I think I wanted to be that anyway. Because that would make my dad proud shar. And those were the things that were surfacing me was timing and being coordinated knowing when to come in right. And then being in the background because I love being back there. And then having my own little solo back as you. Sure. And, and you do that really. Well, for me parenthood was the best thing that could ever happen to me because I was not the star of that show. And if anything my storyline was probably fourth most time consuming and. All I wanted was to be the star of everything I was in, and I felt more joy in that experience than I had any other experience. So it kinda luckily still relatively early on taught me, the joy of like, oh, I don't need the whole thing. And you were always MAGS ample of that. I would always tell myself fucking Craig -til have one scene, to scenes, when I think, back on the episode. All I think of his scene, you tell in may Wittman in that junkyard. I don't give you permission to mess with my dreams. I think that whole season that's my number one scene. I think of and I just I would watch you and I'm like, oh, you can do so much with so little stop thinking about what real estate, you're claiming or anything, just be special when it's time to be special, and you'll get plenty of praise and that was the case, and what a great lesson to be forced to learn. Well, yeah, I mean that show for me was a turning point. Because I got a chance to meet you, Peter everybody, everybody on that show was so incredibly gifted, and they all had something to bring, and then for all those people who are basically, looking for stardom in some way to mesh and unite and become a team and let it flow was fairly remarkable. I don't think in it said this a lot. I don't think I've ever seen it happen yet. The miracle of it is all these people who in the past had been the leads of their own shells. Exactly. Right. And we all came in and everyone took a back seat at different times. No one was grouchy about it. Well, I was I mean I. Remember? I realized what it was. It was like max drive me crazy. Yeah. Because this kid playing this autism kid was pissing me off because he was doing so well. And he was irritating. We're in the scene in hospital, and I'm thinking, what am I doing here today? I'm I'm in the background, I'm just sitting there and like a partic- I think I had one line which was here have a Donut and he says, I don't want to, you know. You know, for some reason, it was a bad day, and blah, blah, blah anyway, the point is and went off. I remember this clearly, and I got so pissed off and I realized from Wong ago, the more pissed off. I get the more meaningful. It is be the more confrontation. I'm having with myself. And with the part, it means that it's meaningful. There's something going on the textually triggering real life crank, t- fears real life. Yeah. So what the hell is going on? And I need to get pissed off to hide that give me a moment. I need to figure out what's going in my life moment. Right, right. Yeah. Walking around going to quit do something, you gotta get me. You had an amazing change. I'd I remember you had totally remember. You were so wrong and. Anyone? Comedy and Gramma at the whole thing is confrontational. And when he gets confrontational when it gets real when it gets real is where the program and experienced come in. And that day on the set I realize that part of this whole thing is going to be sitting there and not doing anything because that's what people do. Right. So get used to it and quit your little pity thing happened because you don't even know why you're pissed off figure that out yet. Right. And what's going on? So just sit there and it did. Stay tuned.

So we had one where he walks in, and, and we had this guest director, and she's wonderful, actually she turned out to be really good. She didn't explain yourself very well. And so there was a couple of people I walked onto set somebody is confronting her. The director with something. Forget what it was. So I go over and I'm thinking, how do I go to this person to cast member? This. Let's just do this because it's like, you know, really Dax comes in. I don't understand what's going on. Why are you giving her and she's pointing to me, and I'm like, Mr. Anderson. I'm sitting there. Why are you giving her such a hard time? I mean she you know, she just trying to direct a scene. My god. What's wrong? Am I come up with the wittiest thing? I said was something you really hurt my feelings. Hurt. Your feelings was so true. It was like anyway, that's one. I remember it was really going to be around you, because you and I have similar triggers. So I would always like, if I was getting frustrated with a guest director because I often felt like oh, this person isn't really watched. The show they don't actually know what I do. They're telling me to do something that I don't do you know whatever it doesn't matter. I would feel powerless and then I'm worse side of me comes out. But sometimes the way I would distract myself was, I would like focusing on Craig, I'm like, oh, this person's from the wrong cabby driving nuts. Just distract myself by watching you. Okay. So back to Spokane eventually you go to college, go to of several colleges flunk out or central. I went to central Washington flunk out of there and went to Yakima valley. Got married flunked out of there or would have flunked out of there. And then my dad died. I got married three days after my dad died because this date was set and Baumann moved to Phoenix. Because my wife father was a helicopter pilot and he was a crop duster. Oh, okay. And so I was became a loader for him. Loading the helicopters. And then decides with pesticides metal paraffin to be oh, specific which is now would have been close to Agent Orange. Wow. There. It really was. And, and I didn't course you don't know it when you're doing right. My father-in-law's family had relative who's Sabrina court Justice of the state of Zona. So I applied to go to the university of Arizona through her, and she had some Paul and I got in, and that's where I found drama. I really, really quick, the planners peanut guy that before all this. I was in high school. Yeah. Okay. So please tell Monica what your what job you have. I was a box boy stages. I up in Spokane, which is really well known. But anyway. That's where my mom shopped and all the neighbors. And I walked in, and I used to steal a lot of beer out of there through the basement windows. Terrible anyway. So there was a guy there. He'd been a Green Bay Packer. I knew that he worked for planters peanuts. And he said, we're coming out with this new line of dry roasted peanuts, and nobody ever heard dry roasted peanuts, and he said they were just wet roast them. And they had a little sample. And he said, now, I've got a costume that you would. That. The planters peanuts. So they had this, like six and a half foot everquest show. Wade town with a monocle. With a top hat or little suit, and the monocle whole had a screen. You could see. Wore black pants and then you had your spats and you had your little Kane. To say, would you like you didn't you weren't supposed to talk, but I said, you know, violating the script would you like some? Improv master. You don't characters company into planners, Phoenix either, and, and I would go around and I was supposed to take all little kids that were there with their moms, and they were grocery shopping, and they would follow me around planner peanut handkerchiefs, and then we'd wave. So little kids. I mean. And they come up and grab my cane out of my hand. Poke me through the monocle. Screen on it. So it was almost like from inside your. And sure enough. This one little kid, kicked me in the Shans. And I mean it hurt. They're means guy says as he said, he found me in the back, I had to show off. Outta here. And he said, hey, listen, man, I can't get anybody else that fits. You gotta go out. These kids, look at take him outside, you know, wave at the traffic you don't have to my gem saying. Yeah, that's a great idea. We go out. And then we all got handkerchief. In a wave. It's traffic and sure enough. The cars are coming in a little kids, shove me back. And I go across the road. Yeah. And I got this shell on in which year leaning, you can't get up right again. The road screech people going, and I'm saying I am so outta here. Yelling from the peanut and the kids are laughing. I hated it from the beginning. In you Tucson and you, you end up in LA, and this is nineteen what sixty five and he's six. Now, I read this in now, I know your story, but I read this, did you meet Barry Levinson at the groundlings? No. I met him at at the Oxfordshire theater. Okay. I that didn't sound right to me when I read that do groundlings. I didn't. But I knew they've claimed you, which is weird anyway. Yeah. I'm berry. He had his Chevy Malibu, with air, Mus Cologne. He was living in the car. Come from Baltimore. And it was the Eddie cantor theater foundation, that's collar ship. So I applied got scholarship and went there that acting classes. So I did that kinda some place and berry was there on a writing kind of scholarship thing. And he was just trying to get started and doing stuff. He didn't know what he wanted to do really and we're kind of friendly. And he says, you know, up to me says you very funny. She wanted to write this comedy routine. I'm thinking what yeah. He will do this just work on some stuff. So we did started working on. We've got to set a half hour and I found out that I really, really liked and he was like extraordinarily brilliant, and wonderful funny and any we really good performance in. So that's we put together some material. And I think we had like an hour and a half and started additioning. We got the ice house, and he would go out because he wasn't working. I was working at First National Bank of Boston as a credit analyst, and he would go out and try to get us jobs is writers. Write nervous for anyone's credit you analyzed. But that's neither here nor there. Only course at I ever got knee and was a county in highschool. I apparently was just brilliant foreign do account. A feel for figures. In many ways. Really manifested itself, berry, goddess job NBC, which was radio team. And they had ninety minutes live show. We gotta do the show, and it was ninety minutes live on NBC and with local. Yeah. And it was like that was unbelievable sat right in your mind. Ninety bucks a week. It's awesome. I quit the Bank, they collapsed. Obviously, I don't see no of. Awesome. We got hired to do Tim Conway. Right. So that's now Tim had a network show. He had a thirteen week show in you wrote on that. Right. And wrote and performed and we add another variety variety that was a network deal. So that was a lot of money. Yeah. And then we had the old red Skelton offices at CBS television city. Yeah. And it was like the most famous writers in the world, and I got to be with these guys who were so quick and funny. And, and we were like the new guys on the block. Yeah. Did you feel like you belong there? You feel fraudulent totally out of place. You probably partied more than those guys to right? Not at that time, the guy that I hired to be my manager. Neil Anderson and he was without a doubt. The biggest criminal Angeles came my manager and he was shorter. I mean he was amazing. You know, he was the first guy saw that had a. A gun seat of his car, and it was a magnum, and he would have shot up place. Yeah. He was graduate of USC in psychology and philosophy. In had been a hells angel. Oh, that's a nice. And he was just really, really something man, and ran a lot of the heroin and cocaine was coming into LA at the time out of the Holiday Inn and. So any en Toan show business became kind of, like at the same time kind of a courier. Okay. Sure, sure. His dish in over at Olympic in third, and you're gonna drive right by law CNN third. So I'm gonna give you a little thing. Just drop it off on look in. It was so afraid to. I I was a love what we did. But at the same time I was obsessed with something and I think it was I didn't like just being a comedy writer, and they knew better Rudy and bearing knew better. They were so much emotionally smarter than me. And wiser and mature that I was still just, you know, beginning to experience the, the early stages of alcoholism, Ryan. And of course it's sixties later sixties early. Seventies, you got Vietnam. Got a whole bunch of reasons to go out and get loaded. She your heart or something. I didn't even know what was going on. And yeah. And I let a healthy chip on your shoulder totally. Yeah. That's right. Yeah. That's right. And then was married and had at that time now to kids. That's stressful. Totally. I was just so mature. So then you. Do the craziest chapter of your life, which is you completely quit show business, even though you're gainfully employed in met people that you can probably secure further employment. And you pick up and you move to the boondocks northern California round mountain was the name of area that I was at two nine east and flip a quarter when we got up there, and you can go west or you can go east and came up. I forget hedging whatever we went east. And you did five years out in the woods after having been in show business, correct? And it was dick Shaw. Valerie, Harper's has been give me a book called how to build your own log cabin but we went up about forty acres, and there was no electricity no running water. And now really quick in retrospect, was this at all an attempted a geographical cure for something that was going on. Yeah. I, I was doing a lot of psychedelics performing and loved it. And at the same time, new I was in real trouble. Right. Like you are in a nosedive, correct. It was like blue barrels, what they call it at the time, which was acid, which was really strong. And then I was on and you could function on a stage on acid. No shit. Yeah. Is daring is I've been I don't know that I, I would feel confident performing. Yeah. I dropped just before we did a set at the comedy store, and it was the three of us, and it was probably the best night ever have really. Yeah. Which told me something. Well, that's what Abadi to Jackie Gleason, as well. Right. If your first successful experiences are linked to for him it was booze. You're like I need this thing to be thing. Right. Just need a boost just to go out in front of people. Right. I needed something. Yeah. I not going out there a right without some armor on bringing that guy with me, whoever that guy is. I'll bring this guy. And they won't know who this is because this guy does not exist. Without. Yeah. And if you laugh at that guy that's only me, so I'm safe. So we said, gone kids, you take your kids with you where to then, and then Noah was born there in a built a house, that was a, a logger surveyor janitor teacher a bunch of stuff some of it not very good. Yeah. There was a lot of the at Phnom ex patriots are guys that have been psychotics and all bunch of stuff grown pot looking to get lost. Yeah. And they were. Yeah, it was an extraordinary time because I learned how to survive in general. Did you enjoy it up there? I loved you did. I just couldn't make any money, right? And I had to come back. I so I hit back and we'll while you were there. You had discovered all these musicians right musicians poets authors. Just people in general. Yeah. That had moved out of the city and state in the sim didn't come out and it was stayed back in ski I think survivor. Yeah. Yeah. You know, you did have those people Survivalists were some of my best friends, they were so willing to help you, it was an opening in, in terms of, of my mind and my dot processes about, who is what in judgements at the same time these were the same people would come up and ask me. To go with them and bring my thirty thirty down to Napa, because we're going to go protests Cesar Chavez, and they may want to kill him. Can we help you build you have? Right. So you got that thing going. Well, I I'm who am I you know, who am I member of what do I. Where do I belong? Because I'm not a hippie and I had known another world. And so John Byner came up to do a concert at Shasta college in I'd worked for John. And so I went to see him come in the dressing room. And I just wanted to say hi, and he says Craig gotta come back come out of the woods. Come out of the woods, my friend, and now is kind of the split that was. Yeah. I left the kids. And that was really hard my wife. She stayed up there. She did. Oh, and then you have the best story of getting discovered I've ever heard, which is you decide upon getting to LA. You're gonna make documentary about the many eclectic musicians around the country, you're gonna make money. Yeah, you're gonna go to Appalachia even. Yeah. And so you gather all these tapes. Right. You have a an office year in your office in your hammered, your editing and you're listening to all this music sixteen track doing there, just in some world of your own right? So you're blasting this music, and you're pounding beers and doing God knows what else and someone pops their head in the room, right? And says what the fucks going on. And I love it. He says, I love that. I had no idea who was Sam Peckinpah and he an office and he was doing a movie call the Ostrom in weekend. And I think I done Justice for all by then berry in Valerie Curtin had written a film Alpa chino, chino and berry came to the office one day and he says, in there hanging around berry. Hey, listen. There's a part you know, in Justice for all Val. And I've just written this movie. He says you go Titian I'm doing my thing. I'm doing. Sure shirts sixteen tracks. Yeah. Middle fiddlers. And plus, you know, I got O'Kane. I got a lot of happening. God knows what I'll miss if I leave this or it's all happening, and he says, wench dish out set up here. He says, you'll be great dog over meat. Norma Jewison, Al Pacino Patino and his come on in. We start talking about it. And he says, well, how do little improvisisation. And so I'm thinking, oh, yeah. Okay, we go. And I'm doing stuff. I don't know. And I get hired and we do I'm still back in office, and I'm doing my thing. And this guy watching the Armadillo. And so Monica sampack, most legendary crazy director of all time, you know, had a gun on his side, sometimes shooting and stuff. Right. All these great Western's just a renegade. Right. Yeah. Yeah. He was amazing guy, just another wounded warrior, really one of us who just couldn't express it, and brilliant guy. Yeah. So he, he says, do you want you come down to the end of the hall and read for this movie? I'm doing. Yeah. I just was so popped, you know, I mean, I was so up and. Amored and I'm thinking chewing, an enormous piece of Gummer something. You know, I'm gonna hide my breath from an alcoholic. Booze. Going down there. And sure enough. He says, well, why don't you read this? And the thought occurred to me. I, maybe I should read it from under the table. Sure. Wars. And he didn't say anything. Match made in heaven. You've been waiting all his life. And I'm reading it. And finally, he says, what are you doing down there? I take my gum out. I'm put on my son put my gun down here. They come back up. And he said, oh, good. So we continue his what you play this part, the problem is I'm gonna have to convince a whole bunch of people about, you know. Yeah. The guy down the hall all jacked up sixteen track. No. You never see. It was like, so amazing go to work and work with this guy and become one of his best friends Sam at a team around him. And you just either loved him or hated right? And he was not an a hard gotta hate. You know, he'd bring a gun. Sometimes. Loaded. God, what are we going to do? I want you to, to I'd like I don't know yet. Let me think about it. Any you say Sam, what are we doing? He says, don't talk to me now I'm editing. Editing. Entity. In the camera you fucked. In the camera. He would edit right up here. It was so much fun. It was dangerous because that's where I went really. Someone who's a highly regarded very successful and they're all fucked up. So you're thinking, oh, this can all be done while fucked. I'm not gonna have to make a choice between these things you can do both. Right. And I wanna die as a poet, anyway. Right. You wanna big romantic on fire? Yeah, maybe I'll make the cover Rolling Stone. If I'm if it's a spectacular enough that. Right. So yeah, it was a really dangerous times and axe. Those of us that are susceptible to that call that if I dedicated my life, and sold my soul so to speak. I could get. And all I needed to do. Just go a little bit further just go a little more Dylan. Thomas, a little bit more rim bowl, and I'd have it. I'd have that Jewish that key. Yeah. And I could be a Picasso also that little bit of positive reinforcement is enough to keep the sinking ship afloat. Right. As long as you're succeeding, on this other thing that, you know, you desire can help you overlook what a travesty your personal life is right? Yeah. It's just a series of coverings in what can I cover this with what can cover that with, you know, the thing for me that was so deceptive about alcohol and drugs was that I felt like I was abandoning those thoughts and those that those guilt feelings all I was doing was just making the more intense for the next time. Right. A little bit more to get rid of them, and and, and. That in itself is like you're getting further. And further away from the truth of, who I was and becoming something that I thought I wa-, which is like completely wrong. Boy, you know something's got. Something is. And I think it's going to be me, and I'm going down on so anyway, but you have a couple of really spectacular things before you visually go down. Find highly amusing one of them being you went and did that movie killing fields. Yeah. Which is setting Cambodia, but you are shooting in Thailand, right? Yes. I've done all right. Moves I got yelled at by the director. It was one of Tom cruises first films. I was completely gone all the way through the movie I was Johnstown, Pennsylvania might as well have been in New York, did you see in him? I'm just really curious. Such a great kid. He he really was. He and one night. He was asking me about acting and blah, blah, blah. And I don't know. I'm hooked up there can hear me over the headphone, and I'm talking about acting like I know what I'm talking about your Santa's law scheme. Clock in the morning. I'm loaded and freezing weather. And here's this great kid asked me, we'll do you think and? Malaysia that you know. So finally Michael Chapman comes over, he says, I don't want you talking to my actors always point pointing at. And I think he's yelling at no. And I says you fit. Fighting underground parking garage. And I got him on top of the Chevy town shit out of his hat falls. He's a rector anyway, we get over there. And that sound guy comes over, and he says that you got five bucks on any and this is. This is sell t for all the audio of. Yeah. If you want shit, a one anyway, so I'm coming off of that. Go to killing a good place to go. Get your Thailand. I get arrested in Hong Kong on the plane and because of the stewardess I says I got a headache. She says you have been drinking the entire flight. We're now just getting ready to land in Hong Kong. She says here, she gives me some value. Oh, that's nice. And whatever chemicals, I had in me when the valium had I had Bob Seger plan, and I tracked him up, and now the people in first class are going, you gotta get rid of this guy. So the police. Hong Kong police, come down the ramp. And I'm going, I says, can I go out and just get some air? Coming out, and they strip all my tapes, and that's thinking, what I got microfilm. I have no idea. I'm yelling at the Hong Kong. Police. Oh, God anyway, so we make that was just the beginning. Your role rolling. You can get anything anytime anywhere. You know, the next thing I know I'm on every drug, there is it's using all the time. Up down in. I mean, I don't even burn up my boombox because I plug it in thinking. Well, we're on the same electrical. Twenty near Bob Seger tape. Boom got stuff. I don't even know what it is. And I'm taking it and I get. So I'm gone. And doria. Says, I think on the phone, I'm gonna come out and see you and you know, this the woman that I love, but I don't know who she is. I have no idea who I am. She comes out to visit. And in the meantime, I've contracted this, this kind of allergic reaction to everything taking and I literally got the worst case of dysentery. You haven't ever seen. Story taking other things to combat that Charlotte. Things up with some opiates and the point being you've kind of forgotten at this point that Dory's coming, right? Totally I get a knock on the door. I think I've been with somebody sure. Missing three thousand dollars. Hotel security has been up there. And I'm in my underpants. Anything else on? I try to tell them that I don't know who was here. Somebody's gotta keep as rope something to be did. Next hang on knock knock. It's a scare open the door. There's story. Oh, she looks at me. And she said my God, what's wrong Craig? What this is your gray. I got then gave fever. Saying gave me we're. Yeah. Just here. I just love with my three thousand dollars. Then gave dang.

Poltergeist is where I come aware of you as an actor laying icy poltergeist when I'm young. And I remember every part of that movie in that performance in ever, I think of that movie, I think of you in the mirror sticking your belly outpolling in sticking out pulling it in before after you. Yeah. Before and after it was real enough that it stuck out, even as a kid, I was like, oh, I don't see guys do that movies, like, oh, this guy is acting like a real, dad. Like there was. There was some breakthrough thing about that just really was impactful performance in, in an I just loved the movie as every single person did. And then boy, was, I delighted when I got to know you just know what you had gone through on that movie. And then I watched it again after you told me those stories and that seem that I love with the belly what I had missed in that scene. Is that your pupils are the size of manhole cover? And, in fact, they're the size of manhole covers the whole movie. You are gaps to the Gill movie. It's incredible to me that you could perform that. Well, isn't that the lie though, in this case, it's not really, really brilliant to the performer as a lie as well? I can't do this now. Not loaded. Right. I've gotta have a buffer. I mean shit done. All this work what am do now. Yeah. And the big lesson for me was, so and I made a mess poltergeist. I really did afterwards. Will you had a heart attack during the movie, right? Yeah. Had attack Accardi and they said a virus muscle was attacking my heart muscle. That's what they said. It was, and I had been in that pool that we dug in the back and love up on it was all those skeletons and stuff. I don't know what I picked up and I have picked it up from somewhere else. But the point being it was time to get out of, of that. And then the real turning point, I think, was when I got with Toby Hooper, who was assigned at wrecking job in that in Toby, and I conspired to come up with this stuff about Steven Spielberg. That was just it was ruthless. And it wasn't right. And I did it. I realized that I was now out of control. Well, didn't you you were put in the hospital and then you're in your hospital down in you needed cigarettes? No, my son. My youngest came in and he was on the set of poltergeist all the time. I was in intensive care. I had my own my own bag. That had my come up still. Sure. Giving me stuff at the hospital. Right. And so I'm, I'm now just fine. Right, right. Where you need me. May. Smokes care at a hospital down on. So I well know as visiting mashes him. He's nine let's go over to sagebrush canteen, cramp smoke. Dad. What are you going to go this way, when we? Hey, how you doing the bartender, looks at me and goes, what do you do? Like back smoke is Jason. You're not dressed. And he said. Your producers are in the back room having dinner, I would get out if I were you. So he gives me the smokes. I go by the way you see your lead actor coming in and out of the restaurant you're in a fucking hospital gown to buy back. Panic. And if you're not an addict, can you really know someone's going through, they're like showing up and doing the job and all that really confusing? Yeah. Well, it's a lot like the stories you hear after you get sober about the other actors are stars or whatever that have gone on while I've been working. Yeah. Where they put their booze. And who knew right point is, is that I couldn't continue to keep doing what I was doing right. Dan was near. Yeah. I can't do that. And so I can't act route at yeah, well, that's it. That's terrifying. I've been hired to do a job. All my God. Right. This all my God. I forgot this, this makes me so high. So you thought you were doing a move with poultry. Yeah. Exactly. Oh my God. We were doing a movie of the week, right? But the contract said that if it did really well. Series attachment. It was a pilot in got picked up. Right. And everyone celery and Craig wait. I've thought this movie. Way, you're going to get sober income back to do something that you did drunk, right? And it came back, and I literally did not know if you could do it, so I could do. And did you find out pretty quickly that you could or was it a process? It was going to be different. I was completely of a stripped, January twenty first eighty four was my sobriety day. And I think we started in March than longtime. No, what do I do? Right. I am. No attachment to emotional recall. None other things that used I don't feel I feel fantastic in a way but I don't feel like acting right? So we get to the set in and it was a paramount and the director comes over, and he says, you know, shooting the scene, and he said, I'm not getting I don't know what you're doing. But whatever it is working and he was right. I mean I, I was playing it but I wasn't connecting in the same way I wouldn't you know. Yeah. And I knew I couldn't get there because none of that stuff. Was there anymore? Right. All of the angst. At this time, you know, I'm kinda. On the pink cloud. Right. Well, and I say this, sometimes the people who are curious about acting. I'm like, you know, there is a slight advantage when you're called upon to do in a motion scene where you're going to want to remember something that was very painful. And for a raging attic, one need only think back to probably that morning or the night before, you know, it is right there, you did something probably four days ago. You're hoping no on calls about. And then if you're living a pretty good life, you just gotta go back further and further and further, you know. So there is a little bit of an advantage to living in a fucking hurricane, and being an actor and you're living in pain anyway. And pain is your friend and pain is your enemy. And that's what you're trying to get rid of absorb more of I went over, and he says, you're not you're not doing as give me minimum. If you want me to do this, if this is what I meant to do. Can you help me out her right? Because I got a real problem. Can you help me out? But by the way, a higher power, not the act of being humble enough to say I can't do this does something in itself. Yeah. And that's been my key ever since. I really do have to acknowledge the fact that I'm doing this pretty much at somebody else nickel here as a result, I came away from that moment in onstage. And I went back to the scene, and I was able to do it. Director that was really good. I don't know what you did. But how really good this is all I knew was okay if this is a gift, I got to be really careful about this. Because if I start taking credit for it, I know where this is going to go. We're right. And I can't claim it as being something even if it's good or bad. I can't claim it as being mine, because it isn't all I am a vessel to do it. You know. And I've got my egos still running with me, still tagging along and hearing it like it's important. Carol. I'll say is that I was impressed with the fact that when we started that show, you, our guest, sixty six sixty five and you genuinely cared, and I remember thinking, boy, I hope I have the fortitude to even still care then, like I can imagine myself, just on whatever whatever gets us to lunch quicker as what I wanna do you genuinely were passionate about how these scenes should go, and how your character should go and stuff. And I think that's admirable. So how many years in sobriety before you got coach for years, four years. That's a great time to get that. The yank yeah, it was such a gift, but the whole thing's been back. Oh, yeah. But I'm just saying sobriety wise, like you've got a nice little foundation. They say you're, you're, you're thinking kind of returns at his five-year marker. They kind of say, yeah. You start. I started sleeping. Uh-huh. After two years, I think I started sleeping again. Yeah, I didn't realize I haven't been sleeping for like thirty five. Right. Right. Right. You know that Dan gay fever, boy, take a toll on your, your ram. You get coach was your ego in a good place. When you decide to do that show a redid. You have reservations about vacations. I didn't want to really do it. It was really good money. So I said, okay. And I felt at the time. Because I've been doing movies had done some television, but it mainly doing movies, I was working my way back up again into that kind of movie movie them. And I do I want to do on do the. Well, yeah. Well, that was also in an era where you felt like if, if I go do a sitcom my movie, careers done. So I'm making that decision your seller. Right. Which now, of course as an exist. But then it was there was this huge, it was real. Right. It was real. It was like while you sold them. Anyway, I did it. And we did the pilot your shows up. He's young kid from New York. He's been sports guy. He shows up. He's now the head of ABC. And he says, I, I saw you show. I really like it. We're gonna put it on the air, and then it was like nine years. Yeah. And in the meantime, it was an exploration being sober working with networks, and that hierarchy and my own self will. Yeah. In control rise. Now I'm the star. And now I got to be something and me and myself. And the creator berry Kempton not get along. And he wanted me to do things and I didn't want to do them. And plus we're now have this hate thing going, and I'm very uncomfortable. He's very uncomfortable. And it's promoting the set. And I'm exercising my emotional blackmail all over the place and I can make you feel bad by just looking at you. And I realize I'm in, I'm in trouble emotionally, right? And because it's starting to physically affect me, and then finally is snaps. They call me up to the black tower and this may be the second year. Oh really by go up. And I've complained about them coming down. We shot on Fridays to shows then after the fried the last Friday show you had pickups. They would come down the writers, and the producers come down, and they had their red paper cups with booze in them, and they would get loaded. And then we're there till one o'clock in the morning and they're giving direction about what they want in re-shoots. And I'm just getting more pissed and more pissed. Yeah. Smell booze. I don't like it can hear the right. The, the slurs starting at laughter over stuff. That's not funny. So my love us probably. They call me up in my lawyer said the only wants you want some not to drink on the set at work. He says that's unreasonable says. Okay. I tell you what I'm in the dressing room in the green room. I'll do lines coke and come out and we'll see how unreasonable this hall bucking thing is okay. So we make peace and the next thing I know it's four years in on the set and berry Neier managed to get along. And he comes up, and he said, I wanna talk to you, and he sits me nice. I wanna make you a producer of the show is you run it from the floor. So I do do you look back and think God, I wish I could have enjoyed that. I enjoyed it. Man. You did totally good. Oh, total. Oh, good. No. I see berry camp all the time we tried to do a reboot. Right. Right. And it just didn't work for whatever it's worth, I had so much fun. Oh, good. And that's when you got crazy about racing crazy about racing. Yeah. And that took the focus away from, as you know, because all you can do is focus on that. Yeah, it takes your money and. Your focus. That's pretty much. It was still so dangerous. Yeah, yeah. It hadn't yet gone to the point where these guys are like almost in airplanes now and they're as safe. Yeah. Most part. Yeah. Which is pretty remarkable. Oh, totally. Yeah. They're going to hundred and twenty miles an hour. And they're surviving all these crashes, survive crashes. And it's all about the safety precautions enormous, and yeah. I did em so prototypes. And I had a Riley Scott chassis, and two of them, two cars and Lozano four did the engines five liter. Yeah. Those five hundred sixty horsepower eighteen hundred pound cars thousand two thousand with the driver. Yeah, that's bonkers. That's real shit Monica. Yeah, yeah, that car will go upside down and hold itself on the road. It's got enough downforce. I mean it's a real. Yeah. It was. It was pretty amazing to go to Dato. Oh for the first time and you find out you really love something wanna do something. And you think you can do it. And then you realize you really are scared shitless. First time I went we went to a dry throw in track, and the raking on on the oval is so steep that I couldn't sit in passenger. I would like Lamey nowhere to an I'm looking up this, there's no way it's way, I can drive on. When you. Then when you do it at speed, and you're getting on it, and it's like your neck is like. You know, I guess, swollen it gets. You can't move after awhile. You cannot move your neck, so you have to wear a strap that's connected to your home it. So you can sense it up, as you going in the race as you're getting more to your neck muscles are fatiguing. In. Often Tri oval straightaway in my head goes Clark. Take my hand in lifted ratchet red hat. By the time we met, you I think I was like going to the track or something. And I was like, why don't you calm? Craig come with me in the track. There's going to be three cars air whatever. And you said, I will never go to track again, it ended up for you being nearly as serious as your addiction to alcohol and drugs. Right. Really became something you had to quit at poll Neil. Yeah. I love it. There's just nothing like yeah. Engines. Yeah, the appeal of it is not necessarily what you think it is. But as a particularly when I'm doing track days on the motorcycle, you cannot not focus on the task. You're doing in the present for even one second, or you will crash and the freedom from my thoughts for hours at a time. That's the real appeal of racing. Is it just requires one hundred percent of your focus or your, your grass? And that's what's so you fork about it for me totally, and you're absolutely spot on and until the ballet goes bad. Uh-huh. Is the most remarkable experience. You'll ever have. I remember being third at road Atlanta, which was one of the fast, scary trust scary. Try downhill under the bridge in the gray. Yeah. Over that I came over that in the rain and you come up top, and you do it about hundred and forty come up over the time you lift a little bit a little white, and it's off camber, and you're going oh shit. Get you get you get get it come through there. And it's like I made. Yes. Jumping from rooftop to rooftop. And he's got through just remarkable. Okay. So you, you, you quit racing. And that's probably for the best. I'm sure Dory was happy. And you got you went straight into golf with the same vigor. Right. You're you're as obsessed with golf. Now is you ever were? Oh, if you peel back that a little something well to me, the whole purpose of what I'm doing now is to get closer to that spiritual force that has kept me sober over the years. But I'm finding that five hours on a golf course with people that I don't really spend a lot of time with I don't necessarily have a great time anymore. So what are you doing now for fun? I'm writing with my son. You are. Yeah. No is a great writer. Noah has got a script that we've been working on for about a year, and we sold it for television, or for television, ten parter. Oh, great. And it's exciting and he came up with this idea about a year and a half ago and loved it beautiful to be able to share your work with your son, isn't it? Yeah. I mean it's like I'm Ana. Yeah. I can't imagine. Daughters. It would be the highlight of mine. It was his desire also to do with me. And I'm hoping that we get a chance to do it. Do you think, though that you could frame this as a, you know, were in the show in work business, not in the results business in ultimately gives a flying fuck? If you get to spend a year with Noah in process that, that's the reward even if it never goes on TV, or anyone ever sees it. Or if it's the thing you set out to make like the just sharing this experience with Nella is the destination. No, no, no. That is such a mature way of looking. To do I would say that in an interview. But to you, I will tell you no good. I wanna see it happen because what he came up with deserves to be. And I want to see him be able to experience that. Yeah. Because I've had that, right? And I used. But I did have it. And, and there were moments when we did parenthood, where it was like choice free. Yeah. And so that's one from your side of the couch, but for me, we didn't get many scenes. Together. See whatever reason I don't think anyone was conspiring against us. But when we add scenes, they were, I would always get to work, and I'd like look at the sides. Oh my God, I have with Craig, and we just always had so much fun horsing around. Right. You said to me once. Yeah, you said had my hair all messed up. And it was kind of longer then came in and seen with Bonnie and we're in the kind of washroom, she's doing his laundry and, and axes there and his Crosby. And he says, you look like he got in a fight with a leaf floor. Going home. I'm thinking about taking I knew what should've said in that. And I should've said, yeah, I want. Comeback. But he would do things like that, and make you think, and, and there was a freedom. It was wonderful because there's a freedom, that was knowledged and accepted encouraged say encouraged. Yeah. And it was like true play. Yeah. Yeah. I genuinely love you. I always felt so grateful that you're the guy that was going to play my dad for six years. Yeah. I just always fucking hit the lottery. It was so great. We have we're so similar very big noses tall or fucking weird. We move weird. Your hands are always dancing around making point my wife's like Jesus Christ. I know who I'll be married to. Yeah. Well, Craig, I think you so much for driving all the way for male. But did you do you have to evacuate in the fires or did fifteen days? Yeah. Oh my goodness. I went and lived with her for three days, and then I went out to the Hyatt Regency in west like okay, and they take the animal, so I had Gobert to cat and the dog. In a hotel room with all the other evacuees. And it was it was terrifying. Because some houses in your neighborhood, do burn down. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Our next door neighbors gone. Oh my God. Point Dume just like there's maybe eighty houses gone. Oh my God. It was on our property, and then within ten feet. We saw going, and, you know, for almost a week, we didn't know whether the house was gone or not. You couldn't get in and it was and is a really terrifying thing going through, and people that have lost their places are. You know, PTSD talked to a lady yesterday lost everything fifty years. Oh man. You know, we went and did the other day we went did this panel for incredible to right. Which, by the way, was spectacular. It was. So I took the girls. Oh you did. And we had a fucking party. I'm doing this panel, and they're screening the movie, and then ask you questions afterwards and it was raining that day, and it didn't wanna go, and it didn't want to answer questions. And I don't know what to say. And, and I'm sitting in this chair, director's chair, and all I can think of is sitting there is how the hell did I get here? The one who look at it, and I think this is meaningful really meaningful, because it's impacted so many people. Oh, yes. What are you doing isolating again? You know, in terms of where I was. Yeah. And this is like the rapid that you go through as you're sitting there, waiting to answer a quite right. And so I just found it interesting that, you know, once again, you have no idea of enrichment that you've been given. Well, also, it's this, it's this really tricky thing for you to navigate, which is, you know, that you better not sit there and take stake of how successful it is. And how much you had to do with that. And how many people you touch because once you're on that road, you're fucked right year? You're that's, that's not a good road for us. But by protecting ourselves from doing that. We also can miss out on shit. You can also not recognize that I act shepherd your friend sat in a movie theater for two hours with my children laughing squeezing each other's hands, looking each other and smile. And they'll remember that for the rest of your life. So that is happening to, and that's worth experiencing in feeling. And yet not heading into the fucking grandiosity of I on this. Center of this universe totally. I mean that's totally right on and you know what it's to be celebrated. Yes, I mean, my God, you know what, once in someone's lifetime with the end up like that, you know, so lucky Dax when I saw giant in Hawaii for the fourth time Doria and I are watching it and beautiful Kawai. And it's such a great movie. And I'm crying at the end of it go. I turn to earn. I go, you know, I would really like it maybe if I just do one of those two weeks later, I get a script in Hawaii called incredible. Hey, those are the guys that did. Hi giant, the. Yeah, that's suspicious. And I didn't have Siri. Right. So the connection. And there it is. Yeah. So do it again. Okay. 'cause I'm gonna take my kids. Listen, grandpa Zeke. Jack jack. His math. Well, I love you so much, and I'm very, very grateful. You came out so made the trip. Thanks for asking me. Thanks, everybody. And now my favorite part of the show, the back check with my soul mate, Monica. Pat man. Onto update you on my ear wax. It's such an interesting conundrum the paradox because as we both know through Twenty-three me, I have genetic wet earwax site. Disgusting. Your, we'll hold on. I guess I just have scabs in my ears on the airplane. I've hold a scab out of my year today flying from New York. Yeah. And I thought, well knowing until Monica, and then I thought everyone exactly what I thought and I was like, what will be the limit of how gross I am? Where people they just finally tune out talking about Putin, my pants, you know, I talk about the tune out on the fact check because of your scabby ear. I'm afraid they're going to not just puree. Forget the fact the scab it was the size of half a piece of rice, uncooked rice, and tell you honestly, it looked very much like a piece of on cooked, right? Was it, it wasn't like black wasn't a black. Gap. They sure wasn't just here wax. That's what I'm saying is the paradox. I must have co dominant. Gene more. I have. Yeah. More. I have to so blessed, so blessed, I think I have dry and wet your wax Monica, maybe the wet wax some of that dried up into this piece of rice, and now you're making rice in your ears.

It was fucking beautiful. What you're in faction. And then it was just as beautiful cobalt blue. You're making she's making like rock like stone. She's making Ignace rock blue Ignace. It was so beautiful Terry. I don't it's so weak. You. Well, beautiful becaming a counter top out of it. Oh, okay. Yeah. Anyway, he's making precious stone. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. Kind of her, I wouldn't say aquamarine that's the wrong description, because it was Cobol. It wasn't a soft. Looking brothers, beauty is. Yeah. Not shit. Yeah. Yeah. Dax got some new fancy shoes. More accurately Monica bought me fan. Pair of Jordan fours bought them for you, because you try to buy them yourself and you did a bad job. We order got cancelled. Yeah. Yes. I found a way out and they're gonna shopping you're really great at it. I just gave you a compliment in your absence in New York, someone's talking about how they're good at finding stuff on online. Oh, I know what it was. I saw your friend, Rachel our second times aren't hotel lobby last night, and her body was talking about how she can find things on the internet. He was saying that she had found a warehouse, that's still had, like two hundred thousand bottles of the perfume mine for like twenty cents on a dollar. And then I said, you know, he's great to find stuff on the internet, Monica. Long. Walk for me to tell you that I was talking about you, New York. But I thought it would make. I thought it would make thank you. Tonight's compliment. I don't know that I deserve that compliment to take take the night on the ones that I believe in. Okay. I wish we'd both seen bless this mess last night. So we could discuss it. I have a bad feeling about it. I'll just be on us you. But you had that about good place to use a bad stealing about yourself and stuff. Yeah, you had a bad feeling about chips to be. Yeah. Yeah. So it's just, you know, to certain point you go is the pattern listen to it. Maybe or hope you'll be happy to know my manicure still going, great news update. It's held up it. Still looks great. It's still getting compliments, those comments, I can take because I know it's true, right? This current manicure looks good. Right. It's not a brag because it's not my nails. It's the manicure it's what they did at the place. The manicures is getting a compliment. It's kind of like when people say, I loved parenthood nine I always feel weird saying, thank you. Because I didn't make. Parenthood. Jason Kadima's made parent. So I'm always like that's his. Okay. Telling you that they like the what you did in that way. You know who I saw on the airport today? Vince vaughan. Talked for about twenty minutes this morning before my flight. And then I got to say him. Oh, Justin long was on, and he told the best story and he does such a good impersonation of you. And he said, I said, you know, he told the story about being at the Chateau and how you go like a lot of guys when they get their hands on you, they'll be so lucky. You know he goes, he's like, yeah. Did you have a thing that you are you turn girls away with, like did you have like a strategy? I know I was like, is there a bathroom here? We can fuck cabinet on the opposite. Yeah. Did you expect that was going to say, do you think I had a method of getting rid of girls that you do? Yeah. Did he have a reaction to that? He's lab. Little. I wanted I wanted more, I thought he'd be like, oh, he's on us but. I told him that I have grossly your wax. It was shape of a rice, by the way, he looked. So fucking good. Look, he did. He's better. Looking really growing with a we'll just his skin. Look beautiful. He looked slim and healthy. He looked great. I was looking at him. I was like, you bet your ass people were coming over to his table as cigarette. He's so gorgeous. It's crazy really? Yeah. He's really a FOX get him in here or would love to I'm interested in getting him in here. Yeah, we would it was going to say when people say like parenthood and you don't know how to say that. But they are saying that they like EU. 'cause they're saying they like what you've done on that show. I feel you know what your same. And if they said, like, oh, you're, you're, I loved, your acting on parenthood. Oh, thank you. But when they just say, I love parenthood on, might I didn't make it saying. I love parenthood. You're so good on it. All mainly. They say that no. So good. So tall in real life. Anyone says to me in real life. That's like I posted a picture of my mom and me to this week for mother's day. I don't know if you saw it. I posted a picture, all show you right now, kind of my mom and on mother's day. Oh, my look at that Little Brown baby on your mom's left. Okay. Well, two things about this picture one but I was gonna say is your thing about nothing able to take complement Eric said your mom's teeth or so white? And I was like, I agree. But I felt I couldn't say thank you tease exactly the same thing. That's exactly what I experienced a lot of people do that with my fake mom to like if they all love Kristen, I to girl. I know listen to actually do a lot of people said that this week week about you. I went to different parties one for FOX for spin the wheel comes out June twentieth. Watch it. Yeah. My game show you could win twenty three million dollars. It's, it's spectacular Swick back here being a game show host it'd be weird on top of it. Real, the second party, I went to Tuesday night last night was the ABC for buses mess. There was eighteen hundred people at that party, I asked the organizer the the night before it was even more people in. So I have to say I met at least seven hundred of those people if I'm being honest, I think I definitely seven hundred a lot of people and to your. Point. I love your wife which is so nice. It is. Nice. And then one woman said you're going to hit me, but I like your wife way more than you. And I might I do too. But that's what. It's totally fine. If you like her more than me, you don't need to share that with me. I'll be just fine. If people could just turn the tables on themselves. If somebody said, I like your husband's so much more than you. That's okay. No one thinks it's okay if you're saying that person on the street. Why do they think it's okay to say that to a celebrity your point, which always point out in your smart to do some people? They're nervous. And they don't know what they're saying. So I understand that as well. But anyways, crag cranky Nelson eighteen love him so much easier dad dad, my last living, dad. Oh, yeah. No. You've had some other dads, father-in-law Tom bell, who ever in father-in-law. Tom bell, who we love? You have show bridges. You have my You have what other dad, have you had in movies, Tim. Robbins was my dad in thera. That's it. That's that's status. Yeah. He's a great. He's. Oh, tell me more about your dad. I wanna meet that. Crag is, is my real, dad. Yeah. Six years, is my dad, you know, there was one scene where you you're crying, and you're hugging him. What, what had happened? What happens? What did happen was? Because you, you had really ruined your life. You are coming out of jail. I know exactly what you're talking about. I get out of jail, walk to the car. He's standing there. I now remember I can see where we were at an in real life, the universal lot loading dock. Yeah. That was a cool night anytime I got to be emotional him. I really liked it. He was he so. He's a great lesson. If you're an actor because he never tries in all. He just knows it will happen. These patient and happens every time. And he can bring it out of you. Yeah. Which is so lovely. Ethan Hawke type rare birds, precious stones rushes me. Psych brio ball, flew affection. I love Bree. I hope she doesn't mind that I'm talking about are cobalt. I think she might. Yeah. Who wouldn't love what an accomplishment who met that made cobalt blue center near canal? I wish I had that was huge and she brought it back in, like a fucking plastic test tube. Lodging there, I'm not ruin anything else using Guatemala for three months living in like a hostile who knows what she picked, maybe some exotic bug burrowed in your ear. And then, like that, that's the source of the cobalt blue nece or something. I wonder if she still has it. I can see where she would you mean the peace? Yeah. Are still -ation because if we could bring into live shows do a little tour with it. People get up and take their pitcher with. Cobalt blue meals infection. Okay. Craig Craig asked if Kristin had grown taller, and you said, yes, she's five eleven. Okay. Okay. So she's not, she's not grown any taller. She's been five one in. I think she claims five one in three quarters or something. But maybe. I think I think she's one inch taller than you, right? Or is she an inch and a half taller your five for? Yeah maybe she's only one inch. Maybe. Anyway. She's between five one and a half and crazy. Difference in inch makes though, you think she's way taller, seems a few inches taller than, you know, I don't like that. I think it's the same for me and Jess, we're really only two inches apart, which is hard to believe because he's infinitely taller than me doesn't seem like he's six inches taller than me, only two I'm six three and he's six five or six. I think he's a taller than six five. Okay. Well, let's say at six six doesn't seem more than three inches taller than me. Yeah. He seems he seems way ta but three inches is a lot like three inches is a five four person next meet that is that's taller. Anyway, the reason I said that is because 'cause she probably appears taller because she's that's how she carries herself going to I have a different opinion. So. Your hair is black soon to me, your height stops where your forehead stops her hair is bright blonde. So there's like an extra inch of hair that I'm aware of her being your height in my mind stops for your hair. If I, I do see, but let me take a picture of you right now. We'll look at that weight taller than Kristen's I would say great. But it's not it's invisible what your hair's invisible? Hair is invisible. I can't believe I'm the first person telling you this. Let's see look at me. Yes. So can you understand that like, where your caramel skin stops is like where you stop? No. On that head your sweaters, black in your hair's black. So to me, it's all just sweater in you are the face. Okay. We're gonna have to post this picture. Maybe it suppose announce this. View me with no hair. I have so much. You do have so much. Does it make any sense to you? Like, if someone had bright pink hair, you would be so wear the top of their being. Guess they have very dark hair. Look, I'm not suggesting anything controversial here that darks harder to see them light. Heads, not here. Illich black cars. Get people pull out in front of black cars more than they pull out in front of red cars cowboy no, it's how you carry yourself. I often get the compliment that I don't seem as short as I am. They find out I'm only five feet and a half inch. Right. And I like that compliment. But then you're giving me the opposite insult. I like miniature. So this is all the compliment. Well, I wish you were three foot four. Yeah, I would love it. If you were that side. Okay. Would carry you of re where I went. You wouldn't even have agency anymore. No one gets older. A full control. That's right. You'd sit on my shoulder. I would never put you in my back pocket. Those out of fear of sitting I knew in pain kicking you. So do root canals cause Alzheimer's. Root canal. No infections in the gums was. But then it was like, then there was a conversation, but do root canals caused problems, okay. To okay can both? And then you said when the infections cause breaks blood barrier and can affect your brain. But two things were happening. Okay. At one there is no valid scientific evidence linking root canal treated teeth and disease. Elsewhere in the body data showing that ninety seven percent of cancer patients had root canal treatment has not been published anywhere. So I think there's like some thing I'll like fear. Yes. Okay. There is no causality between root canals in cancer, just because a person has experienced both doesn't mean a cause and effect relationship exists claims at root canals are not safe are based on research. That's nearly a hundred years old has long been debunked as recently as two thousand thirteen study published in a journal of the American Medical Association found that patient's risk of. Answer doesn't change after having a root canal treatment. In fact patients with multiple Endo daunting treatments had a forty five percent reduced risk of cancer. Okay. Okay. So that's like, they're encouraging people to get root canals. Yeah, you're on the fence about getting one for. Trigger scientists, documenting an increasing number of dietary lifestyle environmental and systemic causes of memory loss. So this is now moving onto Alzheimer's both research an individual experience show that natural approaches can be effective in restoring, cognition. Sometimes completely Scharping it naturally in its medical and dental advisory board have identified ten factors to date that cause or exacerbate memory loss. So called silver amalgam fillings, contain fifty percent mercury and that mercury can create vapor crossed the blood brain barrier and destroy neurons, even without contact safe removal as key along with minimizing our exposure to large steak fish, polluted air and vaccines. Remove that part. This was a dot org. That talent goes dot org. There's no I don't think or com makes any differently. It does it does. I don't think so. I think it to get a dot org. You have to go through a lot more of a process. You can't just like be dot org, right? Yeah. That's right. That's why you are supposed to be able to trust dot org sites, much more now dot gov. Sure now government, I'm less. I'm on. Wow. You're so skeptical get anyway, I don't know what to do about this. I can't I can't. No, you can't read more perpetuating any fashion. Apparently, anyone can get dot org since two eleven. Oh, I was in school before thousand eleven in your knowledge stops there. Yeah. I just know that what I know the reason I knew it is because I've, I've shopped for domain names, post two thousand eleven in all the domain names, I wanted I could have if I was willing to do dot org, and I didn't want dot org. It's just on the options of you type into available. Since two thousand eleven blown. My mind is blown my world is imploding. Wow. 'cause I don't like that. Because now I don't know what's real, welcome to the problem with the internet who allowed this like this. That's crazy. You're really upset by this that checker what am I supposed to do? I know but I've never had the association with org that you had. So it's hard for you. You trusted everything you read on dot org. To go through all the fact checks. Now. We're gonna come through every single one. Okay, whatever this next fact I can feel confident about. He said there's new science about statins, causing inflammation in the new said your doctor said, statins reduce inflammation. So I emailed, doctor, Eric Topol who they did. So I can knew he is the real life dot org. Pre two thousand eleven you can trust him the G dot org. Yeah. Okay. So what did he say? I'll read the whole Email. Yes. Did you love being in correspondence with your pretty attracted decide? Hi, Monica, statins, reduce inflammation overall in the body, which is why they are even helpful outside of heart disease cholesterol, build up works, even with low cholesterol even possibly in other unrelated conditions like multiple sclerosis. But there is an unusual curious still mysterious inflammation that. Stats induce in muscles and the pancreas, not common so DAX's, right? Parentheses again. Sounds like sounds like crushes are going around in a circle here. But there are a couple of exceptions, albeit rare that are not yet explained look forward to our smartphone ultrasound sessions, someday Miley base best, Eric God. I love him. So that makes sense because in a very rare percentage of people, and when I got prescribed stat may warn you about it some people experience, muscle pain, very low percentage. It's so happens that my uncle Randy experience. Maybe my dad either. My dad are now. I think it was my dad, my dad, my biological dad, but it gave my dad muscle pain, and he got off of it. That makes no sense that, that pain is coming from inflammation. But again, very small, I think, I think Craig was wrong as my conclusion. Yeah. Okay. Good is so great. When was on confessed his father. Share Shakespearian complicated relationship. Father's always always, even when they're fake. Okay. I try to look up, what was before dry roasted peanuts, like what were they before they were drivers to peanuts? And I think they just weren't roasted boiled in oil. I mean, that's that is something people do boiled peanuts. But that's boiled in water. Now stop oil. The word Boyle has oil in it. So here's all boiling should include. Well, look, all boiling includes oiling. No. Yes. Now, you can't spell boys oiling. You can't spell funeral without fun. You know what I'm saying? Yeah, I I it's confusing share they should have made the word fry linked to oil in the word boiling to water. So it should been watering in foiling. That would make way more sense. Watery. Bring about eight quarts of water to a border and. Oh, okay. Barry levinson. He comes up in this episode, but I don't know that people know who he is. So I just want to say he's a filmmaker diner, the natural. Good morning. Vietnam, Bugsy wag the dog. He winning cadmium award for best director for rain, man. Yeah. Oh my. So what a movie okay did the Bank of Boston collapse. The Bank of Boston corporation was formed in nineteen. Seventy is the first national Boston corporation, a reorganization followed that merged First National Bank of Boston, and old colony trust company into the newly formatted -chusetts Bank and a which then assumed the name First National Bank of Boston. It was renamed the Bank of Boston NA in nineteen eighty two. Non alcoholic not available. What the fuck does. That mean. Hey. National something probably, and nineteen to McCain Bank Corporation in nineteen ninety seven after the company was acquired in nineteen ninety nine by another leading New England banking firm, fleet financial group the newly-formed company, FleetBoston financial was acquired by Bank of America in two thousand and four. Wow. What a journey such journey. It was making me think of, like when you have to practice taking tests, and they make you practice getting rid of extraneous information that's meant to throw you off like using the word sing out. Yes. Like it's not pertinent to the actual. I heard Boston, Massachusetts, so many times that I got so confused, I didn't know what you were talking about. And then it just finally ended with Bank of America. And I felt like oh we've arrived at the point, what was the point. Well, it's. It's no longer a Bank. Yeah. Oh last thing. So you said addicts have sometimes they have an advantage in playing an emotional scene, as an actor because they can sort of pull on some recent bad experience. Sure. Which is true. But that's also only one method of acting is us experience like since memory, but a lot of acting schools are not fans of that. They try to get you to do other things because you can't always rely on that. And again, Kristen has is not an addict, she can be very emotional. Yeah. But she's also very motions, period. Yeah, it is people to get nervous who are like young actors who aren't addicts. Like, that's not the only way. Yeah. And again, anyway, I'm not Brad Pitt don't get me wrong. There's bigger things to strive to be. But if you're a young actor in the worst case scenario is you end up me because you're sober. That's okay. That make any sense. Now what I'm almost fifteen years sober. Yeah my career's plenty good enough. That's my point all like you can do just fine. Not being being an addict. Oh, yes, those my point two. Yeah. Same point. But not unlike the Bank description, many ways to get. Well, look, you're wearing one of our new pieces of merge. It's which is miniature mouse maximum facts. And rob got a cartoon artist do miniature mouse. It's so cute. I can't stand. Should be on the site by now. Not right. The second. Okay. So should be. It will be on the site. Okay. Vailable although they don't we don't have this in a sweatshirt. I got the only limited edition sweatshirt as I have a brick shit house hoodie so bratty exclusive, maybe we should sell your shirt for like eleven thousand dollars. Come with fatuous juice on it.

We are live at Largo at the corner theater in Los Angeles, our LA home, and we are so excited to top tonight about a classic action. Jackson, Carl weathers, this is an amazing movie movie that I want to seek before. And we will get into all of that. If you told me that Craig t Nelson was going to be full on doing karate in this movie. I with a get the hell out of here. But no it happens twice. Joining me as always to break down this film. Please welcome. Mr. Jason, man. What? We do and everybody. Oh boy. Jason ball. I feel like this movie falls in the thank God. It got me. Yeah. I think I saw this movie when it was like a VHS, rental righty. You could watch. That was exciting question. Mark. And I really watched it today. And it's just as good as I heard. Wow, the raw charisma just being off the screen. Well, it's got everything. I mean, it's got. With vanity. Yeah. This is our second vanity film in there. Very Serpia time. I think we're actually exposing her to a brand new audience. Let's bring people in I'll take that's great. She's saying in this one which was to riffing twice. And I would I would argue that we get into some more serious acting here. She plays series. Yeah. You know, very serious acting when he opened up the jewellery the necklace box, and it was just a syringe. I was I was like what's happening. Now. This is why old I was going to say it was on the level of requiem for dream. Oh, what do you mean? This arranges the syringes. Action Jackson, the requiem a dream of its time. We're really going to get into it. Cannot wait, Johnny. Yeah. I mean, there's a lot. Oh, I have plenty of nine. You have a quote that. I just have quotes around keep your dick on kid. I that's a line in the script in the movie yet an actor. Then said, oh, keep your dick on. If I was if removing one's dick as a child was possible. And that a warning might be needed to to. To keep it on. I would say that the number of times the Dick's are referenced in this film. Yeah. At an all time high for a ninety minute movie. Yeah. Here to talk to us more about this film is my other co host please welcome June. Diane, right. Hi, gene. How are you? I'm good. How are you Paul? Very good grades. You still quickly? I felt like I I had to think about every man's dick in this movie. There was not a male character that showed up on screen who I couldn't. I there was not a moment's peace for me. I had to be reminded. There wasn't a moment with not a single peaceful. Dick bliss moment in this entire. It really does. Everyone's dick is talking about what he can do what it cannot do. Just when you get to a point where digs aren't being mentioned Jarfalla ball. Which I told Jason backstage when I was a kid growing up. I had heard that this movie is the villain cuts off people's Dicks and keeps them in jars, and I've never forgotten this. And when I watch movie is when is it going to happen? I didn't finish is created. I only have a four and they're collectors issues. They're they're cool. Ebay history is real weird. Joining us to talk about the film tonight. Somebody that the first time they've been on the podcast. Please welcome. Seth rogan. Welcome welcome. Seth. Thank you. Gets it. And you you have seen this movie twice now. Yeah, I watched it. I watched it last night. And then I watched it again today during the day. Just to really dig in. I actually quite liked it. I got it. There was a lot. I like, and I didn't get it. And so I thought I'd watch it again, and it didn't help that by. I was there anything the second time around that you were like, oh man that subtext I'm really picking up. Now really is delivering I ought to. I thought honestly I thought Craig t Nelson's plan was actually pretty good. That's what I remember especially as a Cape and it played off of racism that was. That was. I was like, wow. That's pretty interesting of him. And he was bad. That's what I was. I kept writing Craig t Nelson is bad. Yeah. He really does thing. This. Shoots his wife kisses her. And then what so crazy at the movie, it it goes dark, and then it's like comedy comedy is like, whoa. Wait a second. You just dying wife hard on the with dead. She wasn't even diet. Yeah. She was like dead, and he like fringed her. Like the sexiest part of the move. But also, the the the what she could have done was already done like why kill her at this point. Did she still think he was trustworthy? She had so much evidence against him. And then leaves the note for action. It's like, hey, I'm going to confront him about everything. I can't imagine. He's part of this cut to like, he's all of this. And he is gonna shoot you. And then his guys come in. And he's like. Get rid of her with a cigarette or whatever I was like what's going on? Here is also there's a lot of cigarette acting in the movie. Yes, Robert dovey. Who is great good. Yeah. He's he's the buddy that action Jackson goes to visit him. Oh, yeah. We're the fuck did you cover? It was called him. You told them to come coming. He does. He does. My favorite old movie. Because he's like paranoid because he's works for the unions. And he knows too much. So he's barricaded himself at his apartment, and he calls his friend action to come over. And then he tells them all this shit and actually leaves leaves the door unlocks completely as he founded. Yes, he founded. But then so the bad UPS guy comes first the package to Robert Dhabi who suspicious. He's so happy. Going. Well. A package. All this terrible shift. Oh, it's time to send me a package. C o d which is cash on delivery zippy delay. Shoots him. Like, that's a good last line. But I also was I want to the UPS man because the UPS man really took that part. He had a cart. He hit a fully fully signature lists like other. Other season working there for months into to get this level of excess heat became a UPS, man. Four year. He's deep Daniel Day-Lewis theme. They shot him in the chest. He say that they think you might be your suicide. Coroner says suicide. Justin dorm like three feet away. Who's clipboard? Let's let's start at the top of this movie. Keep in mind action Jackson has a degree from Harvard. Is on display during what? Straight talk in low with dudes parties like arguing case law at a function making good points to it was. But it wasn't like it was exit. Jackson was like a nerdy guy who had a violence is like he'd violent side. Always like is. He was ripping off people's arms, and he was a person. You would think he wouldn't use extra force because he could always go fall back on the law. No, no because he's psychotic. And I kept writing I kept writing he's suicidal. I wrote that because he kept going crazy and being what come on? That's why I think there's a real backstory like I watched. I watched one hundred. Something happened. You think in those two years when he's been behind a desk. He's gone insane. He there's a whole key thing. There's a whole kitchen. But the beginnings amazing. It's a great cold open. Yes. So this cold open. I Joel silver movie, which I love all of them. It's so great Herbie Hancock to the music. Yeah. So you open up on this Bill. It's amazing. I used to break dance to rocket all the time. The opened up on the scene of sorry. June to bring up break. I know that you want me to be impressed. No, no, no, no. I could do. I would I would break dance to that song in preparation around on the ground operation for break. Dancing at bar mitzvahs. I would practice this opening scene. It's. A man of power of some kind is is talking to his number two. She's doing grammar checks on a speech as he's he's a letter to. He's dictating the deaf the condolence letter about the death of another union leader because already started where is the guys doing? Like all good stories were starting in the mid. So bold choice. Because again, you don't as a first time viewer. No idea what's going on. You're like this is the main bag. I thought I was like these must be important people. These most beat Nope. Nope. Okay. Got it got it. So I thought that they were I thought it was a letter from the union, but it was going out to a factory worker who had had a very misfortunate accident at the factory. Every night. He does that. All right. Let's go through the maiming. All right. Dictating letters of like, your husband got most. Thirty with your husband pissed condolences. I knew said, it's okay, I want so. Dictate. How about a back rub? Because I'm also a creep. So how many union leaders died in this movie around eight? Movie is very anti union. It's basically. Like just to be clear. The plot is that that coach is gonna kill everybody. Who's in line to become the union leader of the auto workers union right until his one guy that he controls can become the leader. When you just said that if finally made sense to me, but like, that's basically like, okay? The guy that I bought is like the is like housing and urban development secretary. I mean to kill every, but from the president all the way down to it's too many people to wipe out get somebody closer in line. I think yeah. Get your bribing done. No. It's a designated survivor union. That he's doing. Yeah. It's a we. But but he's doing it. Yes. Doing it. He does he doesn't. He was success. This is what else about this movie. This opening scene is amazing is amazing and starts this thing that I love which is these bad guys. Go through so much for simple killing. Think of walking. Bam all of Kim IX, crazy gimmicks. Butterfly nice. This live four. Butterfly knives. Throw sufficient ever goes in pulls it out. He just has another one they fly a helicopter these guys repelled down from a helicopter and then give June. The biggest jump scare of your life. You screamed you screamed as if it was the biggest har- reveal first of all I could barely see the TV. And what I thought was happening. I knew. The foot of band. I could barely feed the TV. Oh. You make you make your watch through binoculars. I'm gonna put it on on the neighbors. Bird-watching killers. I do I don't even think I knew the title at that point. And I thought when I looked up I thought there bunch of giant fighters. Thought. What you thought this moody was a giant spider movie? Wait a minute. Second. I would so doing thing. I was listening to move. The man dictating the letter. At the factory, and then spiders. This is the thing about a cold open. You never know. I don't know. I'm a long for the ride. My mind is totally available filmmakers, and when I looked up what I saw with these is was like five giant, spiders, hurling them. Ropes repel. That was there. And when you realize that they weren't spiders that was like how deep into the movie. But they really like that that elite team was dispatched kind of unceremoniously like I felt like like blonde wig guy. Everybody like kick. A woman to death. Yes. I'm into like this ghost team of assessing. But then they just kinda go away, by the way. How were they go? They broke into a small office four of them union leader. What the fuck today go. But there's like the four walls in the. That's why they're scared. That's why this whole thing is he kicked people. And yes appeared also was like they were not. They were noisy there. Arrival. There was like the forbids do here that I think it's she kept saying boyfriends here. Paid less sets the second happy. Heavy footed boyfriend. That's just Herbie. Please stop giving me a back. Rub. My boyfriend is I have a. I have a boyfriend please don't giving me a bag by the way before they before when he's trying to figure out the TV if you've noticed it's rocky to incur weather's, isn't that boxing scene? Yeah. Yeah. That is a weird that a reality. Ballsy choice. Let's put our star in the TV looking in the same exact way that he is now, but they come in, and they could've torture him a little bit frightened them. And then they shoot him with a weapon that I am still not sure what this weapon is a flare gun. Griego Grenada Burt person you went to flames everybody grenade at you which explodes and then also blows out the entire floor of that building diehards at all. And then he falls into a restaurant full of people eating. Straight to like since pop. Bye. Chart corpse falls into a restaurant. And then it's like bear. This is an amazing train. I loved it. I thought it was so good. Well, you cut into these two cops. And this is where I thought the movie was going to get a little bit weird. You see this like Robert fees like scope and people out on the street, and he scopes out this woman. And I put woman in quotes. Because if I when I saw I was like, oh, okay. That's I guess it's a woman it looks a little bit like a man, but I'm not whatever. And then I did some research. It is a man. Of course, it's a man Paul was man from the first shot. What? Is it a stunt man? Well, I mean when he I wouldn't. That is a man. And. But yet not revealed to be a man within the narrative of the film. That's a woman. Yes. Which the choice to open real like, let's see. Let's like it's a czar. Do you think that's Robert Renault? Do you think they grow who wrote demolition, man? So he's good. He knows. Four or after this way. I want to just say for like that's lawns. By the worst movie looks good. I think it is shot. Well, I think the DP who shot it is like a famous DP. There are things about it. I very much I felt very conflicted because I really liked. I genuinely liked a lot of feels like I feel like what the fuck is happening right now, totally. They don't know exactly what they wanted to be like, my gut was like, it was a total thing. They were like we Beverly Hills cop is big. So let's make our version of Beverley hills cop, but they're like, but we'll be funny like in a weird way. But then we'll make like it's like they tried to capture that have the other side of it really didn't have like they basically just had 'cause curl. Weather's is really only capable of intense cop. Then they team up with a woman who's in heroin withdrawal. Then they give them like an Eddie Murphy as character piece when he plays the preacher. Why like that's it takes place in Detroit. It's like they're doing things. Like, yeah. Yeah. They'll eat this up. It's like someone like just like we'll do another one. It came out in nineteen eighty eight by the way, just so you guys know eight nine hundred eighty eight I would say that the number of civilian deaths. Take place in this movie is with the five hundred. Car chase. It's crazy. Like when the car flies into the explosives in the explosive struck blows up like at least three children die in that. Without a doubt, everything in this movie blows the fuck. I mean, it is this is like one thing. Chases down to cab on foot. Cap on foot him in the street on the sidewalk dis not chasing down. He is running parallel to as there is no track and field. Best track and field stars in the world. Could you jump up? Yes. Could could you jump? Jump up and over car flip up. Is there any way in the world? Yes. Chump up. I think if the car was running driving at me, I could run and jump over it. But. But didn't. Here. Let's do it outside. Let's take it. Whoa car. But it doesn't even seem like he has a running start. It just seems like he kind of just jumping. He. I thought he was saying get out of the car cO bite me. And in fact, no he was like I'll fight the car. Anyway, but the guy lives. Leaves because a huge part of the plan is that he's a lookalike for Carl weathers the plan is we're going to put a red shirt on this guy. Then everybody's gonna pick at you. At a certain point is like the plane could be we have vanity kills the guy or we kill her, right? That we're going to black man, we're gonna make you do this thing. No. This guy's gonna put your shirt on. And we got your cold. Weather's was just going to stand up. It'd be like it's not being. Tree and part of that plan where here where famous red shirt. Part of the plan was also that they would find his charred body somewhere. So like he would go. How are they going to get his body to be charted? Anyway, we're going go to crash during the escape. That flame thing that bring the gasoline in a year. And then they've got some sort of flame thing. It's a Detroit auto building to before he uses the flame thing to kill a guy. He says chill out. So the the main bad guy, this is it almost plays like a sequel because I guess at the end of the first interaction that he had he'd beat the shit out of them. He basically beats the shit of Elon Musk. I mean know, no. Because I wrote it tell ya Wade. He thinks he's he's a sexual psychopath. The whole movie. Whatever does that mean he says he sexually woke psycho fan. The he put the kid in prison, right broke his arm. And he said he has another one, but he's a sexual psychopath. Why is action Jackson? Why is he being like at all on the police force being derided or like joked about or anything like he seems to be unequivocally a hero capable and like also a Harvard educated lawyer, and everybody's like what a fuck interred? But everybody was like this guy. Whatever what's this like this is like just unequivocally hero is a superhero? Has not. Armed sit photos for you. But then but then they built him up. And I thought that this is where the movie like I enjoy this movie, but it goes back and forth but being weird because when the two cops are like, oh, you're going to get to meet action Jackson. He is one of the lines. I was molested by Bigfoot made. Which is craziest origin story. And what I assume the first movie was about. Periods of period piece. Is about a woman who gets Melissa Bigfoot Bigfoot sniffed around. Yeah. One of my favorite movie tropes is like the introduction of a police department like the opening shot where there's like a prostitute in a crazy guy walking by and in this opening shot. There's literally fifty people walking at the same time very dynamic. Every single person on the set is walking. And then and then the cop who comes in with the bad guy is like goes to the prostitutes like hell much for a hand job. Like, you know, what's going on here? Like because it didn't seem like a joke. It seemed like he thinks that twenty is like all right. Let's go like, but I like the like how about a foot job and then kicks him in the nut. Yeah. I was like good for you police officer in a plastic not going to be a great thing. But I like that she did it. I wrote down protein pickup that was in. The what was that was like that was a lie again a line a lot of dick related and not as jokes more is like you have a dick. And here's the thing about your dick. It's like. Rockstar games, the creators of the critically acclaimed and record-breaking grand theft. Auto series are back with their latest blockbuster. It's called red dead redemption to oh my God. I'm so excited. I loved red dead, redemption one. It's it's like one of the most mind-blowing fun games. It's like living in deadwood. I love it. And this one looks to be even more epic. It's a tale of honor and loyalty set in the dying days of America's outlaw era. It's told across the deepest and most expansive rockstar world to date, you can literally go anywhere and do anything at setting eighteen ninety nine you plays. Arthur Morgan, and you are in senior enforcer who must rob fight and steel across America in order to survive. And as Rockstars first game built completely from the ground up. This thing is guaranteed to blow your mind at using all the power of the new consuls to create an experience that does not open. But deeper and more immersive and more interactive than ever so experience a new kind of story as you live the life of outlaw Arthur Morgan and red dead redemption to out on PlayStation four and XBox on. I wanna copy I wish I would have sent me one by now at rockstar games dot com slash red dead redemption to you know, what fuck it. I'm going to buy it rated m for mature people. Look life is stressful. We lose perspective on what really matters. I think we can all agree with that. And I think in the attempt to achieve the things that we want in life. We forget about enjoying the things that we're actually doing. And there's no better way for me to kind of check in with myself, and my friends then when I'm sitting around opening up a cold Heineken sitting talking laughing and relaxing. It's the only time where I'm not worried about my phone, and I'm just worried about the people in front of me. And that's why Heineken encourages all of us to live. Like this live spontaneously, you know, embrace the. Unexpected like explore these new parties enjoy summertime watch soccer matches. And celebrate the holidays, you know, and just do it all with a nice cold bottle of Heineken. You gotta be open to experiences to have experiences. So enjoy a refreshingly cold full-bodied Heineken lager today with its deep golden color lightly. Fruity, aroma mile, bitter taste in crisp clean finish. Cheers. So actually Jackson's than behind the desk for two years. And now he's back on the case. And he's doing guard duty for Craig t Nelson's winning man of the year. This is where we meet Sharon Stone for the first time for the life of me don't understand why he was put in that position. I think I think it was a test. I think our roster. Yeah. Yes. So that he that's his. He's been promoted had it gone. Well, baby. My question was because Bill Bill Duke, right? The jets fill too because like I can't go to this party because I know. Cheesy night. Not my wife. A euphemism for sex, right? Wayside wife spurt cheesy night, and you so now you gotta go be at the event of the man whose son's arm, you almost ripped off who son you put a jail who's the reason being demoted? Like if you're Bill Duke, you're basically setting your guy up right to fail also sharing. Is not the mother of the son who's the sexual psychopath. Right. No Weirs his first one, though, he mentioned it at the very mention it. Mentioned. That for financial reasons that his his partner and his first wife had to go. In the first action Jackson movie. We have to do a prequel come on in a prequel. Would it be maybe a basic and? On bigfoot. Go to camping site. Jericho? No, more like action. Jackson. When you first meet, Sharon Stone. He's unstaged giving the speech and insurance stones in the hallway also watching, but he brings up on state like it's a weird moment. Tintri like, I don't know. Maybe I'm just nitpicking thing. That's stupid. But like why would she be so far away from him when he's about to give this speech Embraer introduce her to everybody and my wife come on. Let's go, but I was going to hang on this hallway the entire time. She'd be at the table. But I did want to talk about the names to Armbruster whose name shop, doc, Sean, della planes, Tila, playing totter well, Kornblau great. Story. Could these are all great name whole cool name? This is like a high schools worth of great. Can we talk about his apartment Jackson's a permanent action Jackson is very hard to say. I don't know if it rhymes. By the way, they came. They came up with the name action Jackson. So Carl weathers came up with this entire idea on the set of predator. He told Joel silver predator crossed Bill Duke is in both. And there's a lot of die hard. A lot of this is this is everybody amount of the entire cast of diehard is in the movie these like, you got this guy. Yeah. You got you got the. I scream. I've never seen our guy on anything. You got on head of the class. And then Robert W was the FBI was Johnson. And there's another there was the blond, dude. Who's one of the bad henchman guy was the guy who kills the desk clerk in die hard. And is at the desk, the whole Lau and the the first guy in the opening scene is the drug dealer that Mel Gibson takes down and lethal weapon. One with the Christmas tree. We'll it's because stunt man directed this movie. Oh, really? And that's and that's it. It's all these guys are in it. And he's from stone family like a famous family at I I know because I was I was I that I was with Watson. I was like, oh I watching action Jackson. He's like, oh, actually if that movie. Royalty there. Like, there's there's like thirty of them. Yeah. And that's why everything is blowing up and people are like falling. Whenever you see people falling like a good stunt because it's hard to do. And it's like real bodies. We don't do windows into other than. Yeah. Throws the cross. Yeah. It's fast and furious. I kept thinking and like the rock kind of like he's kind of a sexual like the rock. He won't fuck. The woman like the rock like like, the rock would never fuck. A woman like. He wanted and his movies. He his wife and daughter said he never fuck either them on the head. The best surgeons from the writers. Jason safe in good, a fucked her like the heroine lady, but at the rock wouldn't have. And I was like he's kind of like the rock. So the car weather is on the set of predator comes over this idea. And they start telling the they're telling the idea this Australian crew member and the crew member says, you do you want to be a part of it? And he goes I'm in like action Jackson, and they go that's the title. So that would that's other game. Just so stupid thing. Austrailia and say. Could it be called shrimp on the Barbie? But it does make you go like that level of decision making about what every decision went through on this movie. Got it go she'll out there. Fuck it. Go. What should I say? We've already got a big thing that shoots flame. What if somebody walked in with a can of gasoline? Great do it. Let's blow that guy up as well. But junior wanted to talk about action Jackson's apartment okay in his apartment. There is a lifelike figure. The early show. By the way, shoot second. Joe scare of June. Fuck. What is it? Hereditary? Creams, and I said Paul what the fuck is. That thing. Thuc is that and he kept on saying over and over which was infuriating. It's a dummy. He has a dummy. What do you do that a made statue that dummy came up with the idea for demolition on the set of this movie? Crease what is to have in your house? It looks like a made dummy. So you probably go. Oh, yeah. The maids in or something. Door for. Oh, it'll be. Buddy. If he. I would too. When people ask how clean by why company? I'll say, oh, the maids. Paul don't wait. You kept on saying he has a dummy like dummies like you. Every. I went to the Michael Jackson like, whoa. What? Are you saying honestly are you saying now? No, it was very disturbing. They were auctioning off everything from Neverland ranch at Sotheby's, I went and walked around this thing and Michael Jackson had tons of these dummies can they're like waiters and butlers. Like, maybe that was the thing in the eighties. Like, they have like a dummy in your. It wasn't too thing to have life life sized dummies in the hope not a thing from. People. W w with your friends look at the dummy. Do you pay to save up for dummy? Wait a second. This is like my buddy. This is like, you're my buddy. Are you? Kerr. You know, what you think that is? Yes. Like a little a little thing. Like this big that like one of those bronze things that hold your keys. It's got a little effect top. You throw something on posters on that. Tennis skirt. Are they not? Hairnet tennis, skirt and white shoes. What's going on? Is it? A scared tennis player in the way, something happening to three minute of baby situation. What kind of this ghost? This is not the only shot of it, by the way, it appears when they kill Sharon Stone in his house. They walked by it again, really briefly, you can get a better. This is the best wanna talk to put this together. Anyone know what that is? That was eerie. Well, here we go. Episode of the podcast here. We go. If that's. He's sitting next to three. Audience is dummy. Paul just turns back at us with with a big knife. It is like this is the last episode. We all have dummy. Sir. What does that dummy? It looks like valet as towel and a shower cap and slippers like change the nets woman, first of all. You're saying it's like it's like address make caddy caddy. I don't know. It's not an answer. Manner. Just guessing like we're getting. Audience person. So your guesses even more worthless than. Speak you pay to guess paid. And no. So we don't. On never forget this. Well, this this is this body. Also makes me think of that other section in the movie where they talk about bodies you remember that when they're on the boat. This is I forgot almost forgotten joke joke run, which is the joke. Run. Guy with no arms, no legs on the floor that okay? And then. I love going back and forth. And the guy knows all the answers. Right. So it's not like these are not riddles these are jokes. But they know them all. Yeah. So they're presented a way that when you first hear it just seems like one person doesn't know how jokes work. Bob. Okay. Oh, but they're not laughing at it. He's studying for a test of some sort. You get enough room. They're going to do some you got to know. Thing. One last thing about this Demi. Yes. As I spend some more time with her. She's not like in a position of servitude. Like, she's not frozen. She's there's something very alive about little boy. Physician. I don't disagree at all. Maybe that's his ex wife that we've heard about. But. Theory that he psychotic and that he's suicidal. It is based off in his living room. And he puts his keys owner. What is weird? That it's really probably like a stunt, man. Made the movie who lives dummies more than stunt men, and he cry like throw Susan in there. And that's what they call her. He's been working with her for thirty years. Let's give her a cameo because at some point someone like the script. He must have been like, oh, by the way. There's a we're human body in the shot. Right. We want to get rid of that. No, no leave. It looks great. It really fills out that corner of the room. That's people are looking at Carl. They're not looking in the background, whoever or whatever might be in the shod. But like car weather seems to make a good living as a police officer in Detroit. Like, I mean, this is a nice looking bar, except there's a w can't move. Would weird thing about the apartment action? You're who? Oh, man. Oh, man. There's so much. But when they jump out a third floor window and land on the car's roof, you know, mattresses and totally fine. Yeah. But that you could see when they land through that roof that it's just covered mattresses. They land like part of the black like taping around pulls off and you see like white mattress. I also loved that in. He goes to get information from his guy, but his guy is dead. That's the scene where they try and cut his balls off when they offer. They have him a blanket party. I was like what the blanket party. That's the other funny part that really be laughing where the guy acid have you ever heard what it sounds like what a bad gets balls cut cut off at actually jackets like, no guys. Like you have. He's he's he's Jit. You shocked that he doesn't know what it sounds like his balls cut off. More messy operation it would be much easier. This is cut off your dick embolic you'd have to get in there. Little bit more surgically sky. They say taught dog time. So into it. The one guy also says take a little Tom slick like you and have a little blanket party line in the movie. And I was like what is that? Just going. Nothing happens. Like he comes back for that seat. It goes Papa Doc his dead at the old bucks. Or like. Oh, yeah. I told you that he's dead. Goes d. He knows everything. Like. It's like, oh, I read the script. So let me just tell you. But every word starts with d does she knows the intricacies of the plot? This nut just like oh. She knows. Go move visit from the Greek court. She was also when she came on screen it sounded like started. A real crunchy sex out came on. You what d- do that Papa ductless said so many times that seen the power movie? I don't know. Doc Duvalier was the Haitian, right? Baby. Doc Papa Doc, right? Doc anything. Daca, eight mile. There you go. Thank god. These guys use a lot of bombs and funny ways. When they. Today handcuffed the bomb to the guy. What's the point? And by the way in seven seconds. Those people get so fucking far away from that boat. Like if that was your whole plan. Give yourselves a little more time. Did anybody else think the guy with the blonde wig was Sharon Stone? I was like oh cool. She's part of the assassins. And she's his wife. I loved that. I love that. Like her thing is going to be. She's the leader of the ghost assassin team. Nope. Test the guy. See meanwhile, like is she I was shocked that she believed coach was good. And then she's like I'm going to hang out with action Jackson and was like to the Butler like eat a dick, bro. Like, what are you up to? She played it all wrong. Right. I was surprised. She was killed so early as well. I was like oh don't at the beginning of her career. Like she gets. She gets killed early over and over totally call. She gets killed pretty early. I think that's what I like the movie was genuinely unpredictable made no sense. Just like the end of the movie when he's a symbol this team that we have been not a part of like, we did not know pickpocket. Fainting. Every time. He sees you a part of your team and then. Head and Mr. say that Hello. Out of the Rafter does the ghost. I was a hundred percent sure. I heard him say goes Hello. I'm paying baby. He's dead. Identify yourself. And where you are if you're trying to sneak up on people why that would be the worst. He made like, Mr. Ed. Put it in actually go a man who say something in the movie a gigantic person has somehow managed to get into the rafters. The Bill didn't even understand why that guy would be friends with actually Jeters one shot. Okay. Early on when Christie Nelson is Sean della planes being mean to vanity right? And mister Ed doesn't like it. He's like fantasies bodyguards show. You want me to come with you and coaches, like don't know who pays you? Right. Right. Did they just had a mutual respect? And by the way, by the way, he's name is Ed in the movie, though, he was. Yes. What according to close captioning. So he was he wasn't even making a joke. He was saying. He literally was announcing his arrival, Mr., Ed. Yeah. Do the fight. No. Yeah. No joke needed makes sense. When he said it it's a way to fight. But there is. Yes, I guess he wants to he would wanna see vanity. But it's also like action Jackson beats the shit out or it doesn't. I guess he's tackled him. He he punches him in the face. He keeps him in the leg. The guy is unfazed in any way. And then tackle them in lease unconscious on the floor. That's my friend. The best though is the heroin needle. That's crazy that guy so excited that he's gonna kill action Jackson. By the way, the heroine subplot in this movie. So vanity is is Craig t Nelson's girl on the side. She's a singer and the opening scene where she sings a song. Right. She's always this is the second movie I've seen her and she's a compelling pervert protege. She's amazing and songs are good. She sings he sons, and she's like I thought I get a standing ovation to Craig t Nelson's like you are at other dick. And it's also Duffy nothing. Like nothing shows. Your bad guy bore that be a load like a nightclub watching a cigarette. Practice. That's like the most common thing a bad guy. Does. Form to watch Perv out. Fucking smoke loan at a table in a nightclub that is empty watching a singer onstage in the day. You're a villain at if you bought hairs in your Joshua action from like the weapons. But they also the what's more uncomfortable being the person that they're singing to or the person that has to fit like like, it's governable for both Patty. So awkward. No is good in this movie. His Bank guy like thing that I thought was great. It was like he doesn't blink. He says is like why is like lock. It's it's it's like, you know, he was I loved him. I loved him. He he reminded me of like, even though late in the movie in it is it's a it's a crazy plan that he wants a voting block is what he wants out of this this Jimmy Carter. Basically, the unions gut the peanut farmer into the presidency. He reminded me of of the bad guy in roadhouse. Kevin. Hi, right. What's what's his name though in roadhouse? His actual name is it's Ben Khazar. Thank you, like those steaks. It felt like just local bad guy. Villan stakes until it was like, oh, no. I need the unions. So that I can have votes. So I can get in that. I was like, oh, this guy kind of smart. It was good. And he's like I kept on trying to understand did did he actually love and care about his son the second he didn't give a fuck about Kenny. He doesn't give a fuck about anyone. Does he care about action? Jacksonville four. I work says it at the end and there's a power action Jackson's tied up. He's like ask me anything. Yes. Do you that plan is anyway here? Deed in clear up your little thing. 'cause oh fill in those holes. He then is like his guy is engine is gonna SAS eight the guy at the party. Yes. Then he's going to go. But the whole thing immediately goes awry, right because action Jackson shows up everything happens. He just tells the pickpocket to run. Yeah. That's their whole plan. Run who still goes grabs vanity in his trying to give her the OD. But what are you doing man that son's side plot where the woman comes up to Craig t Nelson goes, there's no parking the car. Oh, yeah. By the way, that women the actual line was. I've been waiting. Nobody to take the car. There's no. Thank you. She goes truly. I watched it. I rewound it. I watched it a few times because I was like these words could never come out of my mouth. I would literally it's the performance of a lifetime. She delivers. So seamlessly the lines. I'm scandalized. No one was at the LA. Scandalise? No one was real. He's like infraction lady, I'm trying to a pup China plan and. Let's let's go. In our car. Wonderful. Just showing that his friends are piece of shit. Create. Do with anything the what it's illustrating is that they. Those guys are there and have eliminated. I do. Henchman? They gotta go baby pronounce Howley or Haley. Alias comment. Oh, yeah. Right. Keep going. They'll cut fucking whatever. I just realized maybe the valet is the person in his house. That's why the valley is in there. Drives the car into the house. No valet that dating in the background of actor, Jack. He's like oh debit. You're going to be late for work at the party. Love it. If you just have talking to the dummy, dummy, sidekick roommate valet w LA. I didn't fucker she's got a sweet to by the way. So when Craig t Nelson, you think that they're going to have sex. He's like, you know, give me a reason cheeses, I'll give you two she takes for top. And then they look like they're about that sex, and then shoots her up. And then if they're gonna have sex with their unconscious, I wrote out he consensually Cosby's her. I don't know if that works. Kind of what happened to see like she was like knock me out. So you later he's makes with dead Sharon's. So he's gotta thing. He's got a bad. He's very bad. And so is that coroner who sees Sharon stone's body Jackson's apartment, and he's like, I only get to see women like this when they're already dead, sir. A human soul has. Beautiful woman. Blown out seem in action movies is like gross men commenting on dead women. There's a lot of that. You could do a super cut of that. Please don't. But if you do send it to just my personal Email. Dangelo in the background. Hot corpses. Sixty-nine? Well, right. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. What am I other funny favorite like men and women's scenes in this movie is cold? Co. Is one of those men and women scene. This one's a multiple men scene. Woman is a man, and we'll be wounding one man seen fading men and women seen man is dressed in men. Close woman woman close man in man voice says woman, it was one of those men and women seems what are you talking about you work in this business? Right now. Like, a plastic classic man woman theme. Yeah. Notice men been scenes. I love a good romp. Gone with the man. Today. It was good. We did two men women. And then. Then we got to a man three women and a dog seen. And then we thought we were going to get to the man drives the car scene, but we didn't. So he pushed it. When what what else? Action Jackson polls to to Craig t Nelson's house. He's like he's walking up to the door. And then shared zone opens it and in the basically, what did she say? She's like she's like. Yes. I just while you're walking in. He said I'm just coming to see you just as going into town. And she's 'cause the chauffeured or the guy Butler. I don't know it just said do you need a ride or whatever that's what she's busy like each shit. You turkey. June. Men women's really God. So crazy. Break it out call she. Today. Starting with a bed. We'll see. We're going to move to the woman woman. Woman scene. And then we'll basically like a porn breakdown. All I see is. Care. One of two. That's all I care. Anything buddy who just see male? Everyone's like the door of a bathroom too. Have legs or try go skirt, and that's really fair. He was really good when it was a man woman. But then it was just a woman thing for a lot.

It's more of an observation, but it's built on the mannequin in the apartment. So before that he walked by. Taxidermy parrot in a cage. And then also later in the scene where and they go to a bar. There was a bathtub with a mannequin. Here's another this is actually the best kind of feel like we're seeing something going on there. The set deck person probably had some issues. I also did the movie mannequin. That was like my question like is this some how in the world of the movie mannequin kid? This is three action Jackson. Takes place in in the mannequin university. EMC you. Kids cinematic. Andrew. Andrew McCarthy should have been in this. This is a bit part. He's the agent Colson of this. Oh, what was the guy's name from designing women in the movie. Yeah. Hollywood. Oh, yeah. Hi, how are you? Dan. So I guess it was more of an observation the two cops. So we not doing questions today. Did you all agree? No questions. What the intrical part of his whole thing is that rich people can't tell them apart. Okay. Like his whole part of the red shirt wearing. Wearing everyone banking. One was the two cops were my favorite dude things. They said that I loved was I have roaches in my apartment that tell jokes better than us. At the end when the bad guy dies. He goes, that's one dead piece of shit, car builder. You're right. The end of this movie is wrapped up as if everyone also heard the script before they walked through the door. Yeah. There was no. There was no communication. Hey. Great. Great job. All right. We did it. All right partners. Let's go. All right. It was it was like action Jackson's ex partner is like he's like what are you going to do? And she's like Jackson. Vanity screams from the window. And he just tosses him a gun like go go getter. Like, I did like he goes he has. Fuck it. Ma'am. Your name your question Lynn, this is more of an observation. What are we doing? I just wanted to talk about how vanity apparently goes through withdraws and fully recovers from heroin addiction, twelve hours. We'll take the cold Turkey decides. There's but we were she chooses to be over her hair. It's true. That's true. At the end of the movie where she's just like mind over batter. I I like the way she played cracked out on heroin. Like, I that was a real bull choice. Like also thought it was a restrained performance in a way like good. I didn't know where we were going to go. I like scene where he comes. And she's not in the room, and he has to find her in the dealers room in that fight happens. Like, she really like. Yeah. I liked her that that like like she can't not. I did have a logic question though, about how she found that dealer because like. Outs. Like choose this in this weird like hotel like start junkie hotel. Don't understand. You don't understand don't understand that. I think of the hotel was kind of nice like it has room service. And even though it served by. Good. Did it had like it had like a saucer for the coffee Cup. It was actually that's the kind of breakfast. I always want. It looked like a breakfast. I don't know how the pickpocket started working there for the life of me that pickpocket was like the squirrel in ice h. Everywhere. All right here, we go. Your name your question. Sarah is it cool in one thousand nine hundred eight thorough party like two days after your wife dies. That. Birthday party. The answer is yes. If you're a villain absolutely thought. After your wife died, it's after murdered your. Tide. That woman said like, hey, there's no one to take the valet also society about your wife. Do people. Maybe not. No, no. It's on the new right, right? His wife. He's free actually actually Jackson had. Nobody's talking about. The fact that dude, I can't believe your wife was recently murdered. Well, why who put your son in jail, and by the way, they were married where they yes. Dela plane, but now della playing of the plane, so. Of the plane maker of cars. By the way, I love della plain style when he did his kung FU he was wearing a polo shirt and a sweatshirt over the polo shirt, just to do some sparring. And we were saying I couldn't who was teaching. Lessens over. I thought that goes. Is he the censeo or not? I thought I thought it was like I brought you to make me better. But guess what? I'm better than you lessons over thought. It was a real dick move. And he started doing karate. It was. It was surprising that that wasn't amazing. Like, yeah. Like, you never expect. We'll see. And Carl weathers and Craig karate bed. See I assumed that was coming because he did karate in every episode of coach. He wasn't karate coach right karate the first two seasons. Karate coaches. You gotta keep your diesel bet. To be like I remember growing up thinking like, oh that's middle age. Just like that's what that is. Oh, this movie do. Oh, he's he's like forty eight right? Forty in this movie. He's thirty seven. That's crazy. Shocked at how did they die his right now? Eyebrows. Dark dark in his hair shock of silver hair. I thought hair was wont. I could be wrong. I don't know. We we do have to break down the car already four forty four when he made this movie. Wow. All right. I know that he was born in forty four. He was born in nineteen zero any was eighty eight. He was. He was. Don't keep me. Math to do. Just give me fucking answers. Okay. But it was a leap year. So anyway, now, go. So your name your question, I'm Mike. So when Carl weathers gets the posted from Sharon Stone and says, I'm going to go talk to my husband. He doesn't run after her. He goes to watch vanity go performance club and do that dance. Paula Abdul choreographed where she liked Turks or shoulder a lot. That was good. Yeah. And then why doesn't he he's been suspicious of Craig t Nelson since like minute one and doesn't run after he doesn't go. No, she's going to die. It's very obvious. He runs to him. When he's in that restaurant and doesn't say like, hey, you're you're saying that action Jackson the bad cop. Is that what you're saying? Wow. Son of a bitch. So you so you hate action Jackson. Well, so actually. To see a concert take a break from work for a second. Well, and but funding of you say that so I work with Carl weathers and I texted him because I'm coming here. And I say, oh is there one thing that you want me to say he texted back all I remember is wanting more time to make a better movie. Stuff that he wanted. There's probably more stuff. He wanted to do or get done as ING. Yeah. I would recall. Good question. All right. I do. I am amazed at the puns because the puns are so bad. When he does take the car, and drives it through the house, and and again, there's so much to get into this. But he drives the car into one of the bad guys. And then he says to him you lose. Through as if earlier they'd started a game. He also before he blows up the bazooka, dude. He goes, how do you like your ribs? Which question you ever get? The. The answer is like with a grenade. Like, I don't know. Burger you can't have it. Like, my rips rare. Who is? Asking about like, how do you like eating ribs? Or how do you like your own preparation related? No, it would be like, Terry. Eight or spare the? The choice to make the car. Go up the stairs. Semantic? And then a hard turn through and think about think about every hallway that you've been in in your life and how we take a boat. Give them a minute. Because everybody. Everyone including like, but like. The reality of hard drive down to the podcast pause. Really think about it. You're the hospital you were born in. Go from there, the home that you grew up in the schools that you think of all the hallway if you ever wanted a field trip. Maybe you went to feed rooms you've been in. How'd you get there? What was between them always? Fucking living in a world of hallway. Remember them all did any of them have a car driving in it? Every time. I was like they laugh is. Oh. Sorry. Good. I'm good. I'm good. The thought that he never gets out of the. Too dangerous. He never gets out of the car. He just dries it and keeps on making left. And right turns at any point. All right. I'll get out now. How to get there? Right. And then he needs a least thing the line from the commercials hotter. Hotter holidays because it was in the commercial for the Haley's comet. No, the car got it got it because he has a huge. Paula that Argyle? Yeah. You're doing your question. When action Jackson punches Mr. Ed and a face. I don't like that. You just like action. Like, you'd be impressed. It's action Jack again. Embarrassed actually Jackson punches Mr. Ed in the face. And Mr. out says that he put himself through medical school through this work, and that it is against his religious belief to hurt people because he's Muslim. But then in the end of the movie, he definitely hurt some people. I was raised Muslim cell would like to know, what is this movie stents on Muslim? Legit. So did not check out to you. I'm not sure at first I thought oh, thank God. For once in the movie, we're not evil kings. He was good though. Yeah. No. He was protecting vanity. That's why he hurt those people. Right. But he's still hurt people. So then I'm like, okay. Muslims are still shown as people who hurt people only if they have to. Protecting only when protecting all right, sir. Your name you're pushing my name is Joe. And my question has to do with the pickpocket. That's just like from the minute. He sees action Jackson. He's scared shitless like, but he's never seen him. Do. Anything spills cops told them all those stories. Well, he's a pocket in the streets of Detroit you I mean seeing some shit. You know, he like walks like breakfast, twos room and drops streets. Have not hard intendo. He seems off. Fear. It wasn't cut out for that work. And then it's a second pick Wally. Right. It would all world. We're big pocketing is very prevalent is really like those central crime of eighty eight era, Detroit, and this movie has a yard because the next scene. They're just in their in a sterile, vanity, take my wallet. Like, yeah. Fillings while happen. Yeah. Why it never never comes back? Did that was that necessary at all that he not have his wallet? And it's not no it's not like coaches guy, stole his wallet to landed on the fake guy. Something really never comes back. The second time. I watched it. Quebec. And I was. Parts of the movie that don't add up which is. I felt like I was in good hands. So your name your question, Philip. My question is do you think that he uses his law degree to basically handle all the open suits that are against this horrible police department because he's he's been doing them for about two years, and there's a scene where arm brushed her chewing about in the beginning of the film. And he says if you look at job, you'll get your Lieutenant strikes back, which I think are a real thing. And he says it like fifteen well he's been demoted. He wasn't Lieutenant. And now he's been demoted back down to sergeant as a result of almost ripping the arm off of the sexual psychopath at and he's a cop who who's I don't know if you compete cough. If you can't have a gun. What do you mean? Can't he's not to have a go. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. No, his his weapons like permissions have been revoked you think that would get you fired. But I would argue that his body is a weapon. Oh, he's. Shirtless. He is. Yeah. You don't you? Don't see the layer of layer of muscles shirt. It's crazy. Roden has so explosive inner change. It's like, it's really it's crazy. What's crazy about the taxi cabs when he's out running a taxicab? Is so by onic. And so I could watch that man run always say, it was cinematic you folks. Action stuff, and I'm not supposed to find out. It was a stunt person. That missed drifted the action stuff that seem especially he's good could action set pieces that work would doesn't work is like the the bullpen cop. Come rod ary. And even when actually Jackson says like sometimes it doesn't make sense coming out of his mouth says like six of one half a dozen of another. But I've heard that a million times, I know that the phrase, but the way he says, it doesn't even if you say it like it doesn't feel like he's ever heard like he just slow like six of one half a dozen of another like oh. The only time I've ever heard it that that. Stream heard. All right. You you said it was worth it to come to you for the last one. So here we go. So your name your Zane. Yeah. Unfortunately. I've already got worries. I was going to bring up the point about the wall are using Malik. Man. I wish. No, okay. So sorry. So the other thing was whenever they make the sequel or prequel either reaction or pre-action Jackson. Do you think they should cast Michael b Jordan in the role? So that we can continue this thing of him playing the role of his father car weather. All right saying. I would love to see an action Jackson sequel with Jordan food, a reboot son because I think in. Weather. Action Jackson junior. Yeah. Get more tongue. All right. So obviously, we had an opinion about this movie. But here's son, you're just a fraction of action. Guys on fire today. We had an opinion about this. But there are people out there with a different opinion. It is now time for second. Opinions. I saw film on Mazzone on a most confounding contradiction. But it's true fans will carry yo they hold the truth of their convictions. No they man the rookie. Do what people say the Thai of poor. If you we don't care. We'll pass you don't like it. Then your. Give it all five. One. Do sim me Kim in the first. This movie is fantastic. Just. He's. News can go off and boil their heads. Gave the Osco. Are you hearing what I said? No is this my son. Down. Enjoy this poster. These are five star reviews cold from Amazon dot com. There are one hundred twelve total reviews of this film. Fifty eight percent are five star. And they're all little weird. This one is by Joseph. It was written in two thousand fourteen and it starts like this. This movie shows of very good range of acting. I always picture Craig t Nelson as a very positive influence in roles as a football coach in all the right moves and in the TV series coach. He played a great villain. I do not know he could act as a bad guy. Five stars. This one is. This one is from chills. Two thousand twelve it was called the titled fund and active. Active. If you like speed and action, then this is for you with this. You will see lots of running and bullets flying. You will think one certain person is actually the sucks, but he isn't. It's really fun, dramatic and active all in one. Person. Just the village there's the movie to the theory. It was actually. And then this one I just read it because it's weird from Juliet this is in two thousand sixteen. Sorry. I didn't know I wanted this movie. That's all five stars. Favorite thing about these five star reviews is I know from hearing enough of them now that some people just think they're contacting customer service. And then we will end on this one by coup say Adachi this in two thousand fourteen Sharon Stone was young and serious. Why their voice? What's this? Sharing sharing students young and serious. Another her charm and beauty to see. Here is nice experience and a dream of a woman five star. None of these efforts action. Yeah. That is it. And then there's one worth reading the whole thing was Timothy. Yeah fridge. Wow. This is this is Jericho Jackson is almost a God. Carl weathers plays the washed up cop whose reputation gives him nothing. But disrespect that's a characteristic of a mortal five stars. I don't know eight starts with the God. But then it calls him immortal. But it's still worth this person to motel Tim O thima day review to show me wrote this review because they feared people might watch the movie and think they were seeing a God and tape editor right in to make sure we understand this is Maury, certainly mortal. He is certainly mortal this movie came out in nineteen eighty eight. It's budget was oh seven million dollars bad and the opening week was five point four million for the number of stunts that are in there, by the way. That's like. Yeah. Pretty well. Big gross twenty million made money it came in forty ninth out of all the movies made top three movies eighty eight Rainman who framed Roger rabbit and coming to America, those are much better. And this movie this movie beat my stepmother is an alien bloodsport MAC and mean monkey shines. All what you've done in the podcast this movie beat those movies. Yes. Came in good. No here is the tagline which I like that's name. Jericho Jackson nickname action home, Detroit profession, cop education, Harvard law. Hobby fighting crime hobby biting crime, so on his off hours. Yes, also weapon, you're looking at them. Oppy his job should be. Well. You're in the right line of work when you're. I would love it. If it was like hobby like paper. Making mannequins. Book bullet journaling? I mean, I do think actually Jackson brings it in this movie, Carl weathers, I love Carl weathers in everything. And I think even that moment where they made him an Eddie Murphy esque character is the preacher like he went for it. Like he really for it went on for way too long the score helped. Yes. Yeah. You could tell they were editing. They went to the composer. Can you help us through something? She comes in. And she's like she. He's basically they're going to cut his nuts. Indica? They've time. They're like a party the men's room at the pool hall. Yeah. Or they even intimates or they just pulled back area. Yeah. There. Yeah. She is like, oh, it's my brother, and he got hit in the head and the preacher. And and it's none of and they seem to immediately. Be like, oh, cool. Cool. Okay. That's bad. Sorry. We don't have to go to. We hate that. I've told this apology for an in the back of my mind like this is always my plan of action. Like if things go south. Act completely fucking insane. So when I saw it I was like, yeah. That's exactly right. Exactly. What I would do fronted by anyone on a street. Everyone should know I ship. Go say four. Exactly if you wanna cut my dick. Yeah. Here. Knife after. Because taio. The whole thing. I would argue the junior MO is to fully. That's correct. Takes off. My next move is like just go, and here's a taste of car. Weather's going bananas just too. And here we go. There's a lot more than Roberts. Two. I was to plead. So it's still. Straightness? Fucking crazy. And then it goes to fight weird move. And now, I move up I room as the guy's hand with the glad you I would be afraid. My hand. Of course, are we to believe the vanity does become his partner in the next movie. Yeah. I would definitely they're a great pair. That's the thing. That's what this movie was missing. For me is like he should have been part of a team. Like, I feel like that would have made it a little bit better needed as Joe dried, hold if he he is part of a team, and the joke seems to be that he's with a woman who's in here when withdrawal. Yeah. They like lead them dynamic comedic like it several points out the movie Krieger do good cop backup hookup. Yeah. Good Cup drowsy Cup. Partner to come in here. She's off era with. She's falsely second. Where were you? Don't make me get out this Drennan shot to get her back up. Jason would you recommend the movie would? Yeah. Yeah. It's really I thought it was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it. Home run. My history of not by of not renting buying. I'm mad that I rented this because I would have liked to own this movie. Yeah. I would I would watch this film again. That's amazing for me. That's like maybe the first time you've ever. Bowling you watch a movie do you make a little note in a notebook like man woman seen like followed by what was the breakdown? Yeah. This is an interesting one hundred thirty one and it was fifty two women movie. And for that ratio. It was really good. It was a really. It must make like big open street scene, really hard. Oh shit. Man. Man, man. Man. Man woman. I'm like oh shit. Okay. So my patient for this scene is sixty three men walking this way. My scripts when you read my scripts that is dense than men women seems and then you can you break it down and race and go there and very specific. I get into every clothing type shorts. There's short shorts law. To cool ought seats. So in this scene in the restaurant. The restaurant has ten tables at table number one is a four top. There is two couples on a double date. This is the second time they hung out together. There is a man wearing a polo shirt jeans, do but when Christopher Nolan came up with the one man superhero movie bad, actually, he called it one, man. Batman. So we came. Well, you wash it twice. Twenty four hour period. So clearly, I would recommend this. It's fucking crazy. It's great. It's great. It's really fun. If you like this is like an eighties action movie that kinda just bypass me. It's so it's up there with all the ones I think now that I've loved in the past quintessential eighties action movie I've ever seen in some way. It isn't that? It's kind of shitty like the eighties were. As a decade, and like, it's very rip. It Herbie Hancock that like it's more eighties than diehard even 'cause diehards good. So we doesn't belong in the eighties. No, one of the rare eighty movies and maybe wrong saying this. But it doesn't make you feel like ooh, that's a little like, you know, it's it's not totally off base. One of the least do she eighties. Civil and they're all cold weather is kind of like a sexual the raw. There's still there is like critised nudity. But also like the eighties time. I remember watching movies. Just like, oh, I guess I'm gonna see naked body. It's like that's eighty recipe. When you could see boobs in a PG movie. So it was different. But thank presented presented for the most part on sexualize way. Like, Sharon Stone is. I did right in my notes like, oh, remember, real boobs real boobs in movies? These press were refreshing. Yes. Yes. I agree like like glass of Rosaiah on a heart summer day. These refresh either frozen either prosaic t shirt, these boobs were. Jason everything the puck. Nothing to plug it. I'm good. Okay. I mean, I have been watching ninety day fan say. What is this a television program heard this season of it? I don't know about other seasons is this season that we are watching is unbelievable. It's a duck series of about seven or eight couples that are all trying to get married and mail order bride people little bit of that. But a little bit of not to say, it's a it's a real mix. Makes it interesting mostly men women. Watching it when you to June. Do you have to break it down with all missing ball? There's a man and see it clearly. That's why I mean, I get show about him. Four men or women docked show. Great. You would like to put my single that's on. Spotify. Life is a hallway. Charge way too much for hallway to the road. Okay. So it's a name to be side life.

Look I'm I'm as Boorda's everyone else but I feel like I wouldn't go to that I would need to solid gears of inoculation. And some guarantees yeah, also just. It's kind of thing. It's a that's a good point because when I saw the story I was like, oh. Yeah. I. Was like a Pool Party never never. Be Unless it's my own private. Yeah. Be like a nighttime pool party, which is like every horrible La Party you've ever. A good idea. I. Showed Up. You're like this. This is a Zombie I wore the wrong thing. No matter what you are. It was the wrong fucking thing. Yes. and Where you stand you're in a bad spot right and there is no we also don't. There's not immunity to this yet because just because you had it doesn't mean you're now immune to it. That's not health diseases work. No unless unless it's being kept from us, we don't know anything about these works whatsoever feel like a pool party is a little premature, but I am not a doctor nor have I ever pretended to be one hold on why do you have that? Medical. Advice podcasts then it doesn't make sense. Why would you open yourself up the amateur like medical advice podcast back teen on it Oh, spent on it. and. Puts them back team in your mouth and spit on it. You know what you need to do is suck out the. Bacteria and put in. A snake poison. Yes. Fitted in. Yes. leaches from every wear from head Lito Lee at your shit and then here comes the merch that says late shit on the front of it people don't understand what it means. Your mom's upset your cousins asking questions we're doing it again. We're having at it. Has We tend to do going for it. No, we don't know where you are right now while you're listening to this mental listener. Mentally. Literally. where I am personally, it's one hundred, six degrees outside. Which is not common for California. especially US Angeles we're having this crazy heat wave. But none of us are leaving the house anyway. So right it doesn't matter way if you're okay with, it's just like my there's no air conditioning duct into the bathroom. You, go into the bathroom and it's like muggy. It's like a Tropical A. In place for air conditioning because blow drying your like the thing of getting out of the shower and immediately sweating again is my fucking least I remember last week I postponed a meeting we were having because I was like I'm sweating out of the shower.

Please, cancel you Love Day Love Yes anding my laziness or my whatever. It is your needs you. It's you choosing to have needs and just declaring them I. Think it's important.

I'm Jay some tea. And water. A little bit of whiskey and we because it's what's that drink called Georgia's having a day. Hey or just having a day, put it in there. It's that feeling of I've been doing some when the commercial comes on where there's a bunch of people standing in a bar a starting to have a fake funny conversation.

Some of the things I like to do my day. Little little exposure. Is I'll go ahead and put in the old ear buds, and then just I'm now the lead singer of the or whatever. Do Court actually if you're by yourself. The freedom I just have to go around make sure all the windows doors close I've definitely done that where it's full concert and the side windows open and I'm like it's such. It's so early in our relationship from my neighbors to be like, oh no never time for your neighbors to hear you singing. So the other day. And I'm pretty sure it was. Way. By the A. C. Alec I love APPs Matt. Thank you such a good like weight maps by the a as really delivering that. And I turned around just like the the dog did something in the mail person was just standing there staring at me through the Window.

But to me, it just look like a standing staring with their mouth open like what she's just. So disappointed in their in their lives because of what happened when they caught you, they're like, where am I going? People singing this job. Yeah. Exactly. I mean. I.

You were going to say we want to hear what people are doing to fill their time during the day to make them selves not crazy and aside from watching TV or listening to pocket let's Sidra media. How do you fill those additional hours of the day? Like for example, Tommy you see you give A. Three to five thousand person concert as. As the great lead singer of a band that's never existed or something along those lines like this, I know this'll eat up a half an hour if I do this for a while. I don't even know what I do. Here's what here's what some people are doing back into the media today because we're recording us on Tuesday, the eighteenth today was the first day of the hearings of the Golden State killer trial where victims got to come and give either their own victim impact report or that of a family member who couldn't be there amazing. They're doing that until Friday when they sentence him Faulk yes I love it even though he pleaded pled guilty he we. Still get to here and the victims still get to speak their fucking. Lives and their trauma. So yeah, like I love it. So part of it, it's so important and that's great I want to hear everything about it and Paul's there right Yep and. That's what he said in the email.

It's very well it's also just like the conclusion the thing I never conclusion of a thing that no one ever thought was going to have one and it's happening and. You know. Yeah It's never going to be it fulfiling. He'll never speak about it I bet he such a piece of Shit. He'll never caught up to the cop to the fact that he is pretending to be a feeble old man right? We all know is bullshit. I think that is well known well known rumor that he he and his private time is in no way feeble old man. But that's the rumor. That's the kind of thing that a absolately would kick up around something like this. But yeah, still it's great. You love hearing it because you're just like, yeah, and also it's the thing we were talking about last week. We're just like there's no not going to have a crisis of conscience and then say something satisfying none of that is part of it but but it doesn't matter because none of out patient. Yeah.

But that sense sundown fucking towns and their wedding guidebook for black people how to travel across the country without going to the wrong places, which is so heartbreakingly awful. But it's like any room it's just strange secret I believe a lot of people are very upset because it was such a white washed version of that story. And that makes perfect sense to me. But the idea that we're just learning about that, I mean like I'm just talking about that in you know in twenty whenever that was eighteen or nineteen it's just so crazy. It's just like it's yeah it's the second day walked into that shop. First of all, I got teary eyed because I want to go into a store and browse again just really lame. Immediate like fucking like immediate is shopping I miss I. Miss Going into a store that setup. Cool which is that I store he went into that had the green book in the Front Window. I never saw that yeah I was like right at a guy inning and he was going to talk to well anyway it doesn't sorry I thought you meant green book yet. Okay. The sorry in the in the country and there's just the it was. 'cause it's supposed to be the fifties I think it's like, oh, it's like right? It's real late forties because it's super post. Oh No, it's post Korea. So yeah, you're right. So probably mid fifties or early sixties no fifties Jesus's. Korea if I know in Korea was. Career was in the fifty S. yeah. Okay. So it's fifty that from Mash it doesn't matter. The point is that he's in this beautiful store that is because they made it look like the time. So nothing in it looks like vintage shop it is. Then it has all these windows. So it's like the regular front windows but then they also have the top line which there's a bunch of stores in my hometown that have this to it was like store if you're store faced. The the West. Then there is extra windows at the top that brought in even more lights so that your light wasn't affected by the talls. Building. Across the street anyway the whole thing was just very like yeah I remember when we could just go go into a store. And stand around and not think about anything. Yeah it's good. It's exciting. It's like I fucking Love sci-fi to begin with, but it's also like an adventure story Yes. So you know that hurt bringing it's beautiful. Yeah.

So we have so many live shows that we've done I'm course we've posted a lot and then we have in there all these fun shows we had the best time at then we have some shows. where? Either we did then the night before. So they're kind of repeats in the beginning, but the stories we did our. Murder Stories. are still you know mean a lot to us and they were great and we still want to play them even though we camped at the entire show. So we we yeah well, I was just GonNa say there there's also the piece of it to where we used to in the early days and some of you remember this. We would we would do two shows a night, and that almost always meant that it was basically the same we'd never do the same stories for both shows. we learned that quickly when we did that the first time in Seattle and saw their the faces in the Front Rug oh. Oh why did I buy tickets to both the people in the meet and greet like are you GonNa do the same thing Oh and I was just like, Oh, now that's true. This is to separate shows. Increasing our homework low. Yeah. That much more. But so yeah. So some of these are. Some of the shows are it reflects directly that we this we are now on our five of performing. We'll just say that there's no judgment. There's always people that are like. My City didn't get posted and that means this. It's like, no re release the story line of whatever reasoning you think it is right. It's usually something much weirder and more specific than that. But what we WANNA do is get the greatest hits out of there. So that's what we've done Stevens gone through and listen through and pulled the stories that. are like this one's great. Yeah. He's a these are usable stories and then so we're going to almost like you said today like a quilt towards like Karen Story from the city and my story from this city, and that's really great hometown. That's so sad it's anguishing like it should be because there's so many great hometowns nab posted except this week or Maybe the worst hometown we've ever high I argue I argue, say the best hometown we've ever had the simply the best hometown we've ever had. Introduce, we'll get to. So my story this week is from North Charleston Show in South Carolina it takes I did this story on September Twenty First Twenty eighteen which actually was the first of our full tour that year and Hurricane Florence was going on. Time, and so there's flooding everywhere. So we had done during the night before we were supposed to drive to. North. Charleston ended up having fly because all the roads were closed yet right I. Remember that I do and it was really great theater. And I did the old exchange and provost Dungeon Story. So there's a bunch of like people who had been jailed their ghosts that people saw lots of creepy stories from which is one of my favorite things to do is just like take a place like Disneyland or whatever. I'm be like here the fucked up stories from it. That's what you guys are going to here today. North Charleston Pacific Arts Center. So this is from the North Charleston Performing Arts Center on September. Twenty. First Twenty eighteen enjoy. This is so comfortable. All right. Well, I'm going I tonight, right? Yes, you are. You Know How much I love American history. That's one thing everyone knows about. This is just my thing. So. In that with that I ain't going to do the provost Dungeon. Is it a historic? It's so. And hysteric. Let me let me history lesson please and I bet you guys have heard this story in elementary school for some because it plays about it and every everyone had to be a thing and everything happened. Please about a dungeon. History it's just a stoorikhel historical. Yes. It's historical. So like everyone to place so but we in California we don't talk about that this stuff. So we inches all. Stuck. He got a surf class you go to high extolling her class. Snack class. And, then you go back to class and take a nap. You. Stand by a tree. So but it turns out that no historic landmark in Charleston is as well recognized as the old exchange and provost Dungeon Karen Okay at the intersection what? Let me saying it wrong. Good. The intersection carrying cash later of broad street an East Bay St. Is the departments now do you guys live there? The exchange was constructed on the site of. A half moon bastion. Which is where they had all this shit up Just, where they would like shoot people from like this bastion. That's right. Okay. Get like with cannonballs Oh. The exchange was made in seventeen, sixty seven as Mercantile Exchange and customs house, which is basically like. Do Your city stuff like mail letters and stuff. This is long ago before they had stores and ammo anything mom. Theresa. Caputo. There and she's pit. So beneath the fuck where people are doing everyday business though is a fucking legit Dungeon Mike. How often DC done I mean you guys see it a lot. It's been called. One of the worst prisons in US history prisoners were subject to the anything that happened which would be contagious diseases. There was no fresh air contaminated food fucking rats hanging out always rats. and. They were attached to the not the rats with the people were attached a heavy iron shackles and they were just. Cute. Little. Shackle. God. Seven paperclips. Legal Ring. Okay. They're and they're left to suffer there in the dungeon and tell their execution. So it sucked. Let's see. Oh, I have a photo of it. Let's see. We can figure this thing out but we can. I didn't bring my glasses active look closer. As Space Street here. Just kidding shoes asking me just getting I. don't care. So, as we always say when we look at these beautiful historical pictures that are like Oh, my God, it's so incredible is what did it smell like at that moment on this street with the smell I? gotTa wonder. Well, there's a pile of donkey shit right here the foreground. But it does look beautiful and. Then it's weird when you see that and there's no electric electric poles, there's no wires of any kind because they were underground now. Yeah. Totally okay. You're not that into my observation. Yeah. So this majestic building, as you just saw, that's the old exchange spill by the British and seventy seventy four to accommodate the needs of the trading and shipping. Business. Sure bartering. Sure. I'm that flourished harbor bartering et cetera pelts. and. It. Service. Spices. Spices of kinds, T-. That play. The t they lowly and durant Iran was always there. Also, the cultural center of. CHARLESTOWN IT I'm not saying it wrong. But from now on, we'll call it Charleston comes don't WanNa get yelled at. But at the time it was called Charles towns but it says with an e. on the end of town. Can nurse. House. Smaller. Your glasses, Ben Franklin. Air. So the building has a shit ton of American history as the. That quote from History Book? Where the Declaration of Independence was publicly read the South Carolinians and where is that real? Carolinians man. Sorry Lenient I've never. We've never heard of anything heard anything. New. Walk on stage here thinking. And where South Carolina ratified the US Constitution George Washington used to fucking chill at banquets. And like dancing stowaways leaning who's just like. Filling But underneath all this lovely shit going on is a place where prisoners were subject to fucking unspeakable torture that I'm going to speak about. Just sleep below like one floor below three floors and it's Nice floor we're. Coming out here, fucking torture. And let the rats. I kind of love that it's all in one building. It's kind of like an early mall. That's really convenient. Also, it's also that it still exists. You can take tours of it including the dungeon being like we're gonNA pretend that this didn't. Just not opened that floor. It's like, no, no this whole it was great. But for a of people yes to lot. Like today. So. So the whole thing of course is is haunted. I'M NOT GONNA say allegedly. BELIEVE IT I don't. Go so they say the ghosts upstairs. Goats. So the dotes took over the third floor. And they started arresting everyone and sending them stuff done pont now they harm. The Ghosts are the scariest also Mike God. I've seen ghost horns on those goat some. Really Sharp. Of course, on the top two floors that are like nice and classy and shit the ghost like nice and classy and shit. So so goes the floor and they like this they walk with except for George. I wrote the. Big Goes upstairs. You'll exchange are typically less pissed off than those in the former dungeon, I would imagine imagine. Like I'm going to spend eternity sipping tea. Cup. Trying to scare you calm down, they don't do that. Now, the whole thing is now a museum operated by the daughters of the American revolution they bought the building in nineteen twelve and they were like, let's make. Let's let people look around. And the stat. Revolutionary Period clothing line, which has to Suck I. Bet they get paid minimum wage well. 'cause you know. It'll be interesting to know that you just get the outfit. That's there. Unless you can make one yourself. It's like when you work at like a theme park and you have to put the head the like the head of Mickey Mouse on that someone like you don't get your own Mickey Mouse. and. If nine am to twelve Mickey Mouse Eight doritos your fucking Doritos to it's right. It's that feeling but the weird pilgrim draft. Yeah. Just like all the women have to wear the shit that uncomfortable my I had a job once where I had to wear overalls and let me tell you that sucks. Waitress I thought you were a farmer. I was a cashier farmer. In tell you I was like a ghost farmer. Hurting, goes it's hard to say my overall it is it's harder to deal with. They were nineties overall like describe them. Okay. This is I was so fresh. Orange, county that they were dickey's overall anywhere. which is like mechanic like people listen to social distortion on organic, which is fine great. I didn't look on me. What. Kind of a restaurant makes you wear dicky's overall. Country themed country themed in Santa Monica. Country is country. country. Though. They know country. They blueberry fucking pancakes. So they thought it was a country things. Did you those overalls on the bottom probably what kind of a do you wear? Just. Like I'm stressed out like now I have to wear rose which you think they look down on you simply imagine can you imagine if farmer logo decision to dress what we were gonNA wear for this for live shows because we were like what should be where we got this guy that let let's just wear black dresses it's easier. Between Black dresses and over night bought really hard for overall. None of us would be here tonight. It'd be like three of Theresa. Caputo. Future. Can't do it without the podcast fell apart. So the staff, they were revolutionary revolution period clothings and so some bitter visitors. Approach being approaching someone that they thought was a staff member excuse me can i. can you tell me where the or whatever? And then. Only to watch in horror as that person within disappeared. But if that exchange happened in front of me, I wouldn't know who the ghost was fucking says latrine. Your husband is. Between. Is He real? Just fucking go crazy. And then I wrote not sure if they were on mushrooms. The person who saw the ghost that would be? It was just we were touching they weren't touching. They were just asking a person they thought was in period dress a question allegedly allegedly, and then that person. Like I still have to P. When they put you on hold just disappear. Terrible music okay, so let's get into who the ghost would be. Ghost there there. Definitely are our the sake of the story. So. Charlestown Aka Charleston was a mix of wealthy socialites, poor immigrants, levers, slaves, and pirates. And so. That's my bet they smelled so. Yeah. No just salty. I mean loop. Hangings. We're super popular of course in this era. Yes. They were and not everyone who was sentenced to death was guilty. So that is like right for ghosting like haunting I'm pissed off it wasn't guilty. Sure. So that's must be true. Ghost. Logic. So, there's of course, legends that in the early eighteenth century black beard. Would fucking get locked up and chill out there. Of course, you know that pirate yes. The living pirate. When he was alive, you're saying yes. I just. Love. Ghosts? Thought we were. As full form human being that didn't disappear she. Allegedly black there came here. Was He American No No we'll talk about it later we'll. Jesus, Why am I asked? Yeah. He came here because it was like a harbor and Shit. You know. So he was imprisoned in provost after blockading Charleston Harbor, taking a bunch of local citizens hostages because he wanted leverage because what he needed was medicine because he needed these his parrot friends on a ship, they needed medicine because they all had fucking crazy dis oh. You're just going to say scurvy. Now, they weren't attending they downstairs scurvy. We'll help you there my friend. I just realized how much this telling sounds like an episode of drunk history and I'm not. I didn't take a big old gulp of that. Yeti. A Brown liquor. Uber. I know. Taking a long pull off that thing. But eventually, the time was like all right just get your fucking Vdi meds and like let our people go. All curious DVD's. Wow. Really embarrasses they were taking hostages. Could you please come here and help me just like really itchy. So, one of the people that everyone says is a ghost here is dude okay and seventeen eighteen dude who was quote a gentleman pirate and I was like I don't know what that is I'm GonNa look it up and you think like he wasn't a Dick to like his the people he captured. No, he was terrible. Pirates in history and it was because his name was steed bonnet. Steve. Steve Bonus steed. Steed. Cooler than I went to High School Steve Bonnet. And he was a day. So he was he was initially this kind of wealthy landowner. His came from a good family many got bored married had kids and was like I hate this my wife Nags me all the time I'm going to build a pirate ship which you don't do it. You're supposed to steal a pirate ship. I'M GONNA, pay the PYRE, the my friends on the pirate ship, but you're not supposed to do. You're supposed to like divvy up the goods the. And so no one respected him and he was like this like it's like when When Rich Kid we're rich kid wants to be like a punk rockers and just get a bunch of tattoos and panhandle and they're like, Hey, can. Sense and I'm like I have three jobs and you have more golden your face. I've ever seen in my life pawn something. There you go. Exactly On something. That was me living in the upper haight in San? Francisco Getting off the bus from my job at the gap to get on the bus to go to my job at bare essentials. Early days. Thank you very essentials and wonderful mineral makeup product. Thank, you ideally spent an ad placement invented there always be like nineteen year olds Marin County. It'd be like, Hey, man dollar and I'd just be like you motherfucking astle. Audi get into it and drive aware. Okay. So he eventually blackbeard took him under his wing because he felt bad for him the gentleman pirate. He was like fucking idiot. Let me help you out. And they got caught, they got caught escaping. The Dungeon and they were brought back and then bonnets crew was imprisoned in the dungeon. But because he was a gentleman steed put in the town marshals house these rich. Yeah. Essentially. But the twenty nine dudes fucking sailing around with you had to stay in this Shitty Dungeon Oh photo. No you're ready for this. Yes. There you go. What? Is this that play you guys. Look. Shit. George Washington on the left. The guy looks really bored of his head in his hands and tights on is steed. And everyone looks pretty bombed that doesn't look fun. This is when you take a tour. This is what it looks like. Love it I know, right. There's nothing worse than a sad pirate I'd rather. I'd write in. Her I mean, it just looks and you have a BB. Yet, that's such a bummer. They're just like we're just down here with our gonorrhea. We're never going to get out this. This sucks. We miss the Ocean. What if that night when everything closes up those dudes come to life. Just. Really pouty. Don't do anything. Being digs downstairs. So, they're all they're. All, are the twenty-nine executed by hanging. After they had been stuck in the in the dungeon and steed a sentence to be hanged by the neck until you are dead. In he wrote to the governor at this point, he was like I'm done with this little game. I'm playing when I go back three nagging wife I'm not calling her nagging called her nagging. I'm sure she was lovely. and. So he wrote to the governor begged for clemency mercy and he said that if you let me go all I swear I'll even cut my arms and fucking legs off to ensure never pirate again. That's how. Heat what a big liar he was. ASSHOLE. Yeah. Did it work? No December ten, th seventeen eighteen he was put to death. So good goodbye now. If you're hung with an S. T. D. do you have as a ghost? Do you think these are things that we could have trees if she would attest to a double bill with us, which she says she won't do. What could? Theresa's. Live. Paper already. Sorry I feel like it's the first time that's ever happened. On onstage I. Think I've done it a couple of times. Yeah Okay let's let's move on children I'd love to. Okay so. Then the British took Charleston seventeen eighty and under British control. The Patriots were like you know we don't want you here. They put him in the dungeon alongside the pirates and raiders and like so they're like these like normal people when they're scary pirates and heard pirates or scary. And their elected either from disease injury parasites and rats, and because it was below the waterline and right there on the harbor, the dungeon would flood sometimes and drown fucking capita. Oh my gosh I was like I would haunt shit out of that. I would rattle some window exactly there weren't we know. Oh. Shit I'd go upstairs tea room. Shit and often they would just leave the dead there in dungeons with the living really. Geez. It's almost like it's a it's almost bad. Soon after the British government locked up a local trader in Casper strobl, he's a sixty three year old dude. His only crime was at his two sons fighting for the rebels meeting our side. Him and in retaliation he was detained in the provost dungeon where he remained in he quote remained unchanged until he was insensible and then he was released the died that day from madness. That's how crazy it made you there. Wow. The exchanges most. Notorious execution came in seventeen, eighty, one with the advent of the American. American be American revolution. This is where you guys at the play I. Bet. Is a cain was born in seventeen, forty five. Pretty well off family. He married a woman Melissa Hudson? They had seven children.

I was in Bloomingdale's I thought it was gonna be so crowded that. It was the mall and it's just a the store attached the mall. So I thought it was going to be passed and I. Was Walking through and of course, hardly anybody there because fuck at bloomingdales isn't where everybody wants to show. Family Labor, and everyone's like he know where I really WanNa. Spend Labor Day. Just maxing out my credit card for two years issues. But as I was walking around I looked over and there was a girl that was just stand. It's like the thing that never happens we're at least in. California. At macy's you know macy's you can't get anyone to ring. No, it's just like you have to chase people down here was just a girl standing at the cash register like waiting for someone to buy something and so I meant to ask her like has it been busy this weekend. But what I did was yell across the store. Are you busy this weekend? The cashier out. Are you busy this weekend? And she's like. got. Just started laughing. Okay. You can't explain it. It's out of your mouth as a full sentence. There's no. There's nothing else to be done. So. Now I'm dating this fucking. I love it. You get the discount. Discount Friends, family baby. Sitter. Was Pot involved. It was the weekend. Spot. It's California where we have to do. They make us mandates you the mayor comes around your house and makes you they give you your your rations for the week. Smoke this in the mall parking structure before you go. And then have a real good time. And then ask out whoever? I don't think I've ever asked anyone out in my Lila no I want you to never. I'm GONNA make you. I'm, not. Fucking Brent I'm GONNA fuck it. Out. I mean it worked the last time. You just breakfast. Okay. It was just so loud. Okay. So he lived in, he lived in a mansion and all this shit he was super rich we're talking about is Cain? Yes. Not You pay yellow. Jacket. By. Seventeen seventy, six in the middle of the revolution I were hey, he becomes a captain in the Patriot militia. He's like let's do this. You know like he's You know he's a patriot. So called that guy talked like A. Good. there. Wanted to defend this country? You know the British they're coming. TIMES, I've to say. The British. Sita. So then British commander who captured the town Sir Harvey Clinton which I'm sure was played by the kid that everyone hated elementary school. A. He captured the town in the siege of Charleston. He threatens to compensate the property of anyone who continues to be. Loyal to you know our town and he's like you can't resist the royal anymore. Yeah. Take your fucking shit and so but he promised protection to anyone who would support the British. So of course Hain he's totally a Patriot but he's like I don't WanNa lose my shit but also his. He got locked up in his wife and his children were on their from smallpox. He's like I just don't I can't lose all this shit I'm just going to sign it and he signed it and he was like he like there was this agreement he was like, okay I swear on side while you're here. But when you're not here, anymore won't be on your side more. Still. That's that's when it counts the most. One there there doesn't work like. One hundred percent but like they're great. So. The of it, the Patriot forces push back. They get them out of there and he is like great I'm not in the abolition. The success of the Patriots allow them to believe that they were gone. So he wasn't he didn't have the obligation to. Yellow about how great they were anymore. I. Love. Stuff like that. So. Look, but then a few months and later he's captured by General Andrew. Williamson he's an American spy working for the British Aka a snitch. House come on. Be Cool. We mean a second because I is not cool either no which one andor Isaak's no no, he's we like we do. Know he? He did what he had to do for his wife and children were dying right and he was like, but also like I also like won't be on your side. When it doesn't count right. Right okay. But the really bad guy, the really bad guys like I'm just secretly be this guy and I'm not sure that guy he's the snitch. So they started to fear that the they catch him and decide that is a canes should be made an example what happened to those who commit treason so like all he did was tell them he was going to be on their side then he wasn't, and then they're like we're GonNa send example of you know that's treason. Okay technically. Yes. Technically. To people who know nothing about history now fighting about history. It's such a great place to start the new TV show. On history channel. So he's in prison in the Post Dungeon in he begs, officials seldom sees children last time, but they're like, nope. Day Execution, which is August four, seven, hundred, eighty, one, all the citizens go into the street. He's escorted by a party of soldiers to the gallows hands tied behind him and he's hanged until he dies. Yeah. Okay. So he is one of the most prominent Americans to be executed by the British during the American orbit dependents and he probably is haunting the dungeon maybe. So the old exchange. Dungeon spent spent the twentieth century under the threat of redevelopment. It was say that like I told you about the. Relation. In all records identified at least one hundred and twenty South Carolina residents or patriots who spent time as prisoners on site. For treason sedition sedition and rebellion speech and down in the Dungeon, or you can still see what's left of the original wall visitors and staff have reported that they hear Buchan Ghosts and shit all the time as well as moaning. Pain there's rancid odors and go at will, which is like those are the costumes those. We went over that already. and. Visions of apparitions in period clothing with blank stares, we'll walk aimlessly through the halls. Can I just tell you something? That just reminded me of one time I was at work and I kept smelling this really bad collect cologne or perfume is really strong. That'd be a ghost and it was really grounds and I kept going was wearing perfume. Dismissal about. It, I couldn't stop saying, I walk up and smell people and be like I really wanted to find who was wearing this terrible and it turned out it was. I switched normally I wear secrets shower fresh and I switched to spring fresh or some other flavor of fresh and it did not agree with my armpits and created a smell that was like it was like. It was like dirty thirteen year olds like dot ready for dance without taking a shower but it was on me all day. You're alive. was haunted myself. And some of seen chains being potent and stuff and dancing orbs reported cold spots and a few visitors are reported to be pushed and shoved by invisible hands WHOA and like actual hands coming out of the air I. Mean it was probably seven-year-old. Suzy who just likes to get attention. These hands come up from really low. You're like, what do you want me to lean to? What is reaching? Some ice on ghost and. I got shocked by. susie. It's all the ghosts of those were left to suffer in the provost dungeon and that's the pro. Like learning. Doubt it.

Did I knock it out of the park. I'm sure you did you must probably did a great job. Thank you hear. Now we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA. Then go back in time even one year before is my story on today's podcast quilt is from Kansas City. and. This was December ninth twenty seventeen. So this was basically the one year anniversary of when we first started touring holy Shit. Really. Yeah. Because our our first technically I live show. Like on the road was the Bell House Show Brooklyn which was in December and the Bell House held three hundred people many more than that wanted to go. We didn't understand that. Again apologies to the staff and management of the Bell House who absolutely have our faces up the check writers That do not. It was people show here again, Pierre Insanity also that was back when I was the tour, the tour manager. I'll take care of it I said to. Georgia's so. anyways, this is one year. Later, WE'RE IN KANSAS CITY? which we Kansas City we always have shows there. Are fucking nuts. So this was a night where we did two shows in one night and my story was the last of the story the last story on the second show. So when Stephen put this on the list, because Stephen Pre listens to all the live shows. Takes knows because we. I'm so sick I'm so sick by. My voice. And everything around it. So he basically says, this is good. Myers everything around it is my voice so you're my worth. This isn't about. So, and so this is the last. So when Stephen put this on the list of this was a good one I said, how is this possible I remember doing this and feeling physically ill yeah and then when we put it together, Vince just trying to think of, Hey, do we have any stories like you remember from this long ago and we were just saying if If it was the second story on the second show. That's what the bad feeling was not that I didn't have a good time but that we shouldn't have been doing two shows and we stopped doing it. I think after that tour because it's like four hours on stages too many hours on stage just like drains you mentally and you just don't have the heart. You can't I mean God bless musical theater people and people who can actually do Zach Broadway. On. Sunday fuck, we're not even singing. I do sometimes but. That's. Very, low efforts wrath. Br We want to do the best show and so we stopped doing even though we could make a shit ton of more money. But we're going to put out a shitty product. So we were feeling also because the energy and those were so intense and so big and so much like to doing to all of that in a night I couldn't even imagine doing that anymore was we it was pure ignorance so we were able to do it in the first place. Anyhow. So please enjoy this is at the Midland theatre in Kansas City Missouri and one of those big beautiful old theaters that is so insane. Look I just took a tour of it online today just to if I could remember any specifics but you know twenty seven, thirty, seven years old, it was three years ago. It's it's crazy. It's so funny. So anyway. All. That in mind please enjoy my story of the Stole Cemetery. Mine is slightly away but this this place has been of interest to me for such a long time and I was so excited because it's only an hour away. From where we are right now and it is apparently according to the Internet the most haunted evil place on earth it's the stole. Cemetery. Bride Cutler. Ghosts lives. Here you should be you fucking should be. Because guess what? The. Devil comes out. Twice, a year to visit his child's grave. Somewhere in the cemetery and I believe on the headstone they say the name is something it looks like witches but it also kind of looks like it could be someone's last name and so apparently the devil although he is the Anti Christ in in the Lord of all evil also cares deeply for his dead son so. Apparently that's the story. Right. Stole is a city and Portal knowstone with a T oh. That'd be fun. Skull. would. Be Fun. But then I, it's a bit on the nose. Don't you think? Yeah it's. It's Thacheray. Oh again. So we'll go one letter on we'll call it still it's an unincorporated community I said city it does not qualify city. Also, quite small smaller than your. Buck salary I wanted to win. This is it's in. Douglas. County Kansas. Representing. All here tonight. Yeah. All of us here and I'm so happy to hear you make that noise at US Kansas because when I discovered. So basically, I had a I had what I thought I was doing and then I changed my mind. Yeah. So I had Stephen, can you send me creepy things I WANNA do a creepy one for the second show it's more fun and so he sent me a bunch of choices I see still cemetery and I'm like, yes, this is it. It's my passion. Not so much so that I know what state it's in. Like six PM. This evening saw that it was not. In Missouri? I was like pouring sweat at the desk. I was just like Holy Fuck and I texted Stephen I was like. Yes Oh. That's not actually where we are. So I need a new story fire season, the I fired him. But. Then rehired him at a lower rate. So. It's fine. Thank you. Here. You know what's actually but then when I looked at it on the map, it's so fucking close and I was like whoever's now did this fuck them and then I always forget. We have such amazing listeners who drive for hours time to come to these live shows. Let's journey to hell together. Founded in eighteen, fifty, six stole was originally known as Creek, but it was renamed after its first postmaster Sylvester. Still. Now some say it was renamed the city was renamed after him. But some say that the post office if a town was unincorporated town if area was unincorporated and didn't have a name, they would just call it by the post master's last name that was that they used to do back. Then that's easy. So either way here's Silvester stole a haunted fucking name right? There I know. Them. Stali. They tore the post office down in one, thousand, nine, hundred, three. I don't know why. They were they were mad about mail. Stamps. So, this area was settled mostly by Germans in the Pennsylvania Dutch Aka the Amish. Guys. What are we gonna Big Amish following and they have to leave like three months before a show because they're they have to go by carriage. Alongside of freeway, all slow the reflective triangle on the back and loved the Amish. Magin they bring us like homemade. Homemade well that's everybody does he adds To imagine that. Okay. So, eighteen fifty, seven, there six families that live install. Love. So the same year, they construct a stone church on land donated by Jacob Hildenbrand. Later called the Evangelical Manual Church. And then in eighteen fifty, nine hildebrand donated more land for the cemetery area until one thousand nine hundred sermons. County Chapel were preached in German. A gorgeous. Language. This small community never grew larger than fifty people. At the time. Now it's up to two hundred congratulations to. Keep it out. There, all every single one of those two hundred people as pissed about how many people try to come to the Stall Center cemetery and around eight it. Okay someone named Chris. Christ craft. This got to be right. Right. Let Christ knows select from Nevada. It's Christ craft and inhabitants of the settlement. During the twentieth century we'll calls that life in this small town was quiet easy sometimes even boring. Shit. That everyone here right. Until. So this is all directly taken from a website called the weekend. Weird. And this guy that writes website went to the cemetery. So a lot of his stuff was first hand. It's really hilarious because he's like I got there and there were fires in all four corners of the cemetery and I. Do are you. Sure. Okay. So he writes for over a century. Still Cemeteries been linked to countless legends involving Witchcraft Satanic, Cole pointing at me because you love it. I love it but I'm making you love it. Okay and of course, the infamous gateway to hell have you ever heard about this now it's the best is a gateway to home it is. It's not a highway to hell ACDC owns that. They have the copyright according to legends. Lucifer. The Devil? That's who I was talking about earlier. He wants used this. Church that was in the center of the cemetery. Then it became abandoned and he used it as his own personal doorway from the Netherworld. Install where? Rouse the spirits who had been buried inside the gates of the most evil cemetery in existence. Sorry people who are buried in the summit. I don't know what you did. Wrong. Bugging fucked up Amish people. Alienate. Listeners that's. Guy. Hand Crank podcast this she. Plays podcast and makes butter at the same time. So good. They wouldn't go to the double. Kansas I feel like he'd be like. Transylvania home I mean. That's against Kansas. It's like you know what I mean. It's too late. It's better than that. Better, the Transylvania. Insulting the Transylvanian listeners. SACK DIANA CAPES STANDING Slick back. Oh No, he's livid. He's putting his hands out and walking really slowly toward. Not Scared of you. Scared okay. So this is really awesome. So this church in the center of the cemetery is like basically the center of moments, evil doings and all this kind of stories around it. So there is outside of the church there is A. There's like a platform and underneath it they said like. Grown over it. But if you lifted up, there's a set of stairs that go down to nowhere. No one knows where they go to for real for. Look. You know it's like we're like half creepy realness right now I would say got it. But they say in those who have done it no names no. No dates no nothing verifiable. Those who have walked down these stairs say that adds you walk down as very strong force tries to pull you to the bottom of the stairs. Amy Don't fuck up are scary story was science. Got, a lot of sugar today. The one person started walking too fast at the top of the stairs and they like went down there like that devil making me Oh. He did what I did. The opposite of why did earlier in tripped up upstate I tripped up a step today young can he? He fell gravity right? Yeah. Did you just fall all the way down on the ground when? It was really in front of people don't worry it was in of people. Valet stand. Yeah. So no one tried to help me. That's best when I fall all the way down, I want everyone to leave me the fuck. Okay leave her to look away. Look away her have her shame alone. One time I fell quick sidebar I fell out of a cab in Chicago. Very odd. It was like I thought I had it. I. Thought I had it like getting out of a car I'd done it before. I thought I had this shit on lock. Talking. Now rain the devil tricks does the devil polls you down. You don't need stairs weird. Force I fell down in front of this busy movie theater in Chicago. Out of the CAB, it didn't make sense like give you. It's seen. It would have been like you're supposed to step up out and I just like kind of came out in down. And I did it where it was like heart is like my toe caught on this curve that I didn't see or whatever. So I went spoil full splayed long and then my stupid toe PAG. Fell in front of me. So all of my things just went like. And then so I was like, okay. I don't really live here. So I'm GONNA survive this. These people again. But the saddest part of it was an old lady came and helped me. You did this to me. So any house. But here's the twist. Ruby stairs. When you turn around to come back up the stairs, it takes longer sometimes two weeks. Bizarre set. To get back up the stairs now you know at the time you're you're walking you think, oh, that just took me four seconds should have never gone down dark stairs where they go to why did I do that to begin with then you come out and you're like two weeks later. This impacts my life in a very minor way. And this favorite murder live. I didn't the garbage out those two seats are at their. Down to swap place also, metairie stairs. Murder, they'll do God. Damn that devil. Man I love that. No one talking about going up or down those stairs reports that it is hot or any? There's no hellish. Aspect that I've read there might be in there. I haven't Doug hard enough to the stairs. Okay go on. So these are apparently the stairs. The devil comes up out of every spring equinoxes and Holiday Inn to visit his poor dead son who was the devil's wife? When did they have kids? I have so many more questions now that I'm done reading storing not done. Okay. So. The most widely accepted theory behind the origins of Stolz. Evil reputations again word for word from the week and. Weird Is. Tied to a large tree, which once stood in the cemetery and an old tombstone? Oh, there it is described with the word wit. So it's W. I. T. T. I C. H.. No? That's not a word. I, T I see. Genetic Lightly misspelled, which I guess now that I look at it, it's not that big of a deal. Now, the tree is said to be the hanging tree for the condemned witches. Who are put to death there by torch wielding townspeople so like this seven Amish people got together. You make candles we don't like to. Earth thing. And then the the tombstone with the word rich engraved on it is none other than Satan son himself? who was legend says was born deformed and covered in Wolf Air. Maybe. That's just a dog. So a couple sad things that have happened in stole around stole in the early nineteen hundreds of boy was accidentally burned to death by his own father. Look Weird turn could have been now keeping that could have been the devil and his son that's why he said visits him so often. In, the early nineteen hundreds a local man and stole was reported missing and he was later found hanged from that pine tree in the cemetery and. The Old Church and stole is believed to have been built in eighteen, the eighteen, sixty, seven, cut and paste. But. Then in the early nineteen hundreds, it fell victim to fire. Okay. So Here's some. Here's some other. Thanks. One story tells of two young men her visiting still cemetery one night they become frightened when a strong wind begins blowing out of nowhere. It's called wind isn't that how it works Doesn't start by going. Wait, hold on I us out of nowhere I hear the cry of. And that means wind is coming. So, they run back to their car only to find that it had been moved to the other side of the highway and it was now facing the opposite direction. That's creepy. That's something only the devil can do. Just play these practical jokes. Let's. He comes up those stairs. He's ready to have some fun. Yeah. He's been bummed out by the death in the family, and now he's like, let's fuck with some people's cars. Okay another man claimed that. About the same that seem mysterious wind that he was in the church. And he said that the wind came up, knocked him to the floor and held him down on the floor for some time. Sometime. He was drunk. I Don. I I was GONNA say that, but I don't WanNa like this now. Every single time maybe there's something spooky I'll let let one of these things land. Okay. So you're gonna up all the things you could pick your picking wind kidding to the ground. Pick there's no going back. Okay. All. Right. No matter what I come up with later. Okay. There's something good. Okay. No I love this like. Would go to this. Oh, I mean in one second like they don't want people there and I think it's very hard to find. Great. Let's go right. Okay So this church. It's been missing its roof since the twenties and they say anytime, it brings it never rains into church. Of A new roof. Invisible wonder woman ruth. No. Water ever drops inside the square of the Inside Church K. Not blowing your mind the way I wanted it to Iraq. Sorry Oh my God. There it is. The people would see this. Firsthand. With their eyeballed. awestruck scissors would report that the tiny church would save bone-dry. No matter what time of year or the weather conditions. Reminds me of like depression commercial a commercial for a pill for depression when it's like the little thing. Only as. You all Gross Adam and then he gets his pillow and he's happy again what if? What if the devil just looks like that a little blue circle rolls around with depression. That force in Balta. Balta this about to circle is that a heart attack medicine could I don't know? What I mean So Loft. This bitch knows. Let's see. There's a wealthy to appear being like. Right this what can kick it off? Murder. Business Expense go they say that? Supernatural attributes. Of the time the town finally gathered together to take this church apart because of all these creepy things are happening and people saying things are happening and then people coming to look to see if anything's happening and they're like fuck and take down burned this church till the ground. But that destruction made the speed it's angry you know and so that's when the huntings in the graveyard flared up. Why they just put a fucking roof down church. oops I probably shouldn't say Goddamn. Church. Jewish Jewish it doesn't matter. Your Pat. Everything. I don't Care Samat Real. Okay said that this is this is one that you may wish you'd picked que they say before the church was demolished if bottles were thrown at the walls, they would not break though he's throwing bottles up the wall and also scary. Especially devilish also like. I mean like. I don't know. Who? Angry. Very, me is like. Bubbling to the surface. Well. They say that if the bottle didn't break, you're going to hell broke you're going to have it. So then they all didn't break. We're all the hell. But at least we'll be together. When Pope John Paul the second visited Rocky Mountain. National. Park in Colorado for world, Youth Day in one, thousand, nine, hundred and ninety, three member. How Fun that was. WHO Like who plan that was like you know who you should get for world, Youth Day, you know who the kids love the youngest man on the planet Pope John Paul the Second. Let's get him out here. He loves you and the blood of Christ. Okay. So they say there's a rumor words. Whatever that when he he is. So scared of stole that he made his plane fly around the area on his way. To Colorado. which is I guess he's the Pope and he has probably the most power of any religious person, but do pilots take requests. That I wonder. Could you go over to the left about seven thousand feet for a little while devil? Do. Now I'm in the middle of the stupidest one I've ever done. But also the best or the best the best elite it was in. The urban legend would site a Time magazine article stating the Pope John Paul the second requested his light his plan fly far around the section of Kansas. Because the OCCAS HE DIDN'T WANNA fly over unholy ground. But it's sounds like what they're saying here that article never existed. This is a comedy Patton. We never promised you. I like doing gossip more than facts I. Think it's just it's better. This is now a true crime. Broadcasts. Also says the pope's plane was nowhere near Kansas during. Their don't even making me try to nation. Here's the thing about stole is you just have to you have to believe no matter what I tell you. No matter what happens is okay. So in October Thirtieth Nineteen, Ninety, eight, the pine tree that the hanging our number that was you do remember okay. Good from it was cut down. And then. A man from the Lawrence Journal World puts the. Is that the best newspaper ever. Whatever happens now has to be true. And it's up to the wrong it's. His fault. Because we believe you what what does he say well. He quotes the official heat everyone says. The rumor is that they took the tree down because which would which would go dance around? And do fuck in which he thinks and black masses and stuff like that. But Kendrick Blackwood of the Loris Journal world quotes the official position of the town citizens on that tree had to be removed 'cause it had died. But then it was buried in a grave with a Tim Stone. Mark. So. Now the tree is related to the devil on Halloween Night Nineteen Ninety nine reporters from local newspapers and TV stations went to the cemetery to join all of the Lakers because everyone was there to see if the devil is going to walk up the stairs fucking party. I WANNA be there with a blueberry and fucking long island right. The. Devil No. Sneak up and you come out of the big. How you could on those I went down three weeks ago I was ready for this fucking master prank. Basically. They let people hang out with the sheriffs were there but they were letting people hang out show up until eleven thirty, and then a man who was the representative of the owners showed up and insisted everyone leaves and so then the deputies had their choice but to honor his wishes and make everybody including reporters leave well, he sounds like the fucking devil party Pittsburgh. No, that's his hair slicked back and he was wearing a red velvet coat indicate that was the devil posing his the landowner. Rules. In nearly two thousand and two large crack also opened in one of the stonewalls after the church was struck by lightning Wayne. I thought the Church had taken apart. It's the new church. It's the church never letting Stephen Right. My thing again. Not really what kind of. Punish for. Picking. Okay, I, get it. It was. It was it was still up because then on major on March twenty, nine, two, thousand, two, it was mysteriously torn down this for real this time though you guys I'm serious. But the man who own the property here it says that man is named Major Weiss. Said, he didn't authorize that demolition tate do. All there hasn't been a church in one of flu. That used to be more of an old miner, but I just turned it into like blanche from golden girls. I. Don't know what is doing. Change and Excited he just sounds like a fucking episode of Scooby Doo. This is the Scooby Dooby is story I've ever done really is. No Mr so and so it's the devil. Feeling now that I'm reading this out loud I feel like the key to start this story especially in stories like this is when you're reading it on a website that has black background in the writing is Green Only, lives there to pull it off of that. It's all ruined because like you know what? The banner top of almost every website overseen about the stole cemetery it's like a dead tree and fog, but it's nighttime. clashing. The devil is on earth and now I'm saying out loud and I sound like a big dom. Business Superdome in twenty-six team. In, hit Kansas. Big One right. So, there was a picture that was going around on the Internet that said, this is dull still devils storm torn stole apart or whatever, and it was actually a picture from Christchurch New Zealand when they had the earthquake and bear roads were like insanely torn up. So people like look at stole dead yeah, truly the devil is with us now no. Okay this is the last and best. In twenty thirteen. Arianna Guerande did a show right here at this theater on this stage with this same audience. She did a concert stop here the Midland and then. She they knew about stole already. So they decided they were all going to drive there and they're big Arianna black SUV's. Guerande Arianna whatever I find her to be very talented. She's she's done at all. She's very, very good at what she does when she hosted snl she was awesome. So. I just want that's preclude everything I'm about to say by saying that I however however. She has her bodyguards carry her around like dog and it's so funny. Maybe they want to do that. Maybe they're like you're so cute ninety can carry you. Well, she's like care. Tired I worked really hard. Here's something I. Love a guy that I follow that super funny on Twitter Jessie a believe his last name is Maclaren and he did a thing where he tried to reenact Aria. Album cover where he sits on a stool with his feet tucked under and he was like basically pretending to start a thing saying this album fate. Because he couldn't sit on a stool like that, and then it got around it was kind of became a little bit and then she fucking central a picture of herself not being able to sit on the stool like she got in on the party herself girl, which makes me love her I ain't GonNa do it. So I also love her because she went to the stole cemetery. So here's what she said. They carried her. She said I felt. Sick overwhelming feeling of negativity in the whole car. That's your makeup artist dude. She's a real be. She's my serve only you ever. She Arianna says we smelled sulfur the sign of Demon to Fart. Everything saying again but think of farting from the beginning of the negative. I felt a sick overwhelming feeling negative negatively car and then the next line, and then we smelled sulfur which starry. That's the sign of an internal Intestinal Demon D. You. Saw It here I wonder if this also support your theory. She said, then there was a fly in the car, also the sign of a demon. Bligh in the car suddenly a fly out of nowhere fly. You know normally you know flies are there you see feel them. This one this was a surprise black. So. They got so freaked out that there were signs demons in the car when they got there that she rolled down the window and said to the cell cemetery we apologize we didn't mean to disrupt your piece. And then she took a picture. Artists Man. Feeling negatively. Hooking apologizing dispirit. What. Am I just got struck by A? Die. Fan. Welcome. So many pictures. Tomorrow, crash, she takes a picture and then says, there were three distinct races and she said quote, their famous their faces of textbook. Demons. and. Then when they interview that she was telling the issues telling a reporter about this and the reporter says it can I see the picture and she goes I deleted it because I gave it to my manager Upload and he couldn't upload it and then when he checked, it had six hundred, sixty, six megabytes of him. It was to the file was too big filled with demon faces. The demon was like I'm going make this. Truly, sainted. and. That is the worst retailing. The Seoul Summit terrier buddy. Exemplary looking must wow, that was amazing. CAN YOU BELIEVE I? Say this thing all those things things you were here you were there. We all laughed. Now let's get to what everyone's been waiting for, which is the hometown. So where you see now, the point here is where we've cobbled together a live show with all our favourite live show moments without having to have you listened to three you get best of yeah. This is a hometown that has gone down in the books. It's legendary. It it's an example of what not what be everything remember how we always go on stage and say here are the rules and everyone's everyone we know the rules well, you don't listen to them sometimes. So we have to actually tell you them every time. Yeah, and Euro responsible for other people in your town as you as all murderer murdering as well. No. After the first time we were like, yeah we kind of get heckled too much and the next live show he did. You could hear people just going. Like I want to be that allow you sing. Totally self policing, which is so such a murdering quality that I adore it's just like nobody's going to be that person ever and won't allow you. It's incredible work. So this was absolutely anomaly. Someone snuck through. Tech, it was all on me. I was picking at the time and it's always on you or I always put it on this girl seemed really enthusiastic and she was really close the stage, which is helpful. We're in Washington DC, right?

Let's do some fucking her as then it's do it go ahead This is from Heidi joy wind on Instagram my fucking Hurrah yesterday my fifteen year old than I had a one hour car ride together just the two of US been awhile. He decided to Dj, the event and what followed was an hour of a singing at the top of our lungs. Simon CS, Ny Bjork Peter, Gabriel, and the guerrillas. Both of US had goosebumps. We're near tears. Several Times. I had this overwhelming feeling that I had done. My job is a mama well that he would be okay and that I couldn't feel more love for him or the life he has ahead of him. Teenagers there so hard. That's. That's very. Okay. Well, then this one I'll read this kind of coming the other direction. Teenager is that what is? Where do I drop this one off? this is from someone named Elissa. And they say fucking hurry my stepdad adopted me last month. He's the most wonderful man to my mom walked me down the aisle at my wedding and he's loved me unconditionally since he and my mom got married over ten years ago I'm an adult and married. So this really is only symbolic, but I got a new birth certificate and a new maiden name without going into too much detail. My biological father is trash and I don't wish to be associated with him and we haven't spoken many years. I was worried Kovic. I've waited for for so long but via zoom in a lawyer's office, it was made official and I couldn't be happier my new birth certificate arrived and I've never felt more free much. Loved my murder girls level Issa. That is so beautiful. I've seen a couple those where it's either like adults or teenagers present that to their step father the ones I've seen are stepfathers and it is the cutest. Like, they immediately burst into tears and like it's so lovely I love I think symbolic acts of like stuff like that is so important too because even. As anything. Yeah. But something to you and you're able to move on from this past that you don't want, and it's also that thing of I think step parent thing where it's like. Whatever stepparent you might be that you're always kind of this outsider, an enraged or and so how much that would mean to the parent who parented As. She says Elissa said like parented her furtively her actual life was her real father at it's beautiful. I love it. Okay my last ones from mortgagee underscore why my fucking her a is that I just finished as a marine animal rehabilitation and environmental education intern at the National Marine Life Center and before I left, we released four harbor seal pups back into the ocean. They were separated from their moms due to human interaction, and it was one of the most filling things to see them successfully rehabilitated and going back to their homes. He would fall. That's so good. Did you see the story of the man who punched the Great White? Shark. Yes. Has He was attacking his wife I saw it on the bananas Instagram Feed Actually.

Podcast i'll look forward to hearing from you when you have the time today. I'm going to be getting into the second part of his three part series looking at the poltergeist films of the nineteen eighty ease. Of course. I did poltergeist from nineteen eighty two on the previous episode going tonight. Nine hundred eighty six four. This one poltergeist to the other side poltergeist to is a pg thirteen rated film does have scary images violence and language run time. It's about an hour and thirty one minutes. Craig t nelson williams heather o'rourke oliver robbins and zelda rubinstein reappear. Julian beck will samson and geraldine fitzgerald are newcomers to this film. Brian gibson. this time out is the director. Michael gray's and mark victor. The screenwriters now poltergeist obviously was a pretty big success. In nineteen eighty-two a sequel seemed of course an inevitability especially for the financially struggling mgm and gm's president at the time of poltergeist freddie fields. He regarded the property as this check. Just waiting to be cashed. Toby hooper steven spielberg day. Actually for a short time discussed an idea that they had for a followup would involve the national guard quarantining cuesta verde and they would bring in the scientists to enter the realm of the dead. It would be much more science fiction based this time out then it would be a horror film but financial troubles did put mgm into turmoil. And by the time they started to get some of their bearings spielberg in hooper had already moved on to other things and they really couldn't come back for the sequel now fields did step away from mgm in one thousand nine hundred four and he became an independent producer but he did remain as the poltergeist sequels executive producer nonetheless because spielberg was unavailable fields decided to pursue the credited co screenwriters of two guys michael gray's and mark victor to write a continuation if they desired grazing. Victor they had been working on the jerry lee lewis bio pic great balls of fire when they were approached to script poltergeist and they said anywhere except on one condition that they could also be the producers as well as have carte blanche to do whatever they wanted with the story including ditching. The feelings as starting with the different family. If those actors were not going to accept returning this was deemed. Acceptable and the writers decided to approach. Joe beth williams and craig t nelson however as expected. Neither seemed very interested. Nelson was busy with his tea series. Called call to glory. He didn't really want to interrupt that to return to this role that he considered fairly superficial williams declined. Because she felt that poltergeist. Had been typecasting here. in hollywood. She was getting offered almost nothing. But generic mother roles in films and tv shows so and victor felt that they should entice williams and nelson. They would allow them to shape their own characters if they would accept returning so they discussed with nelson. Some of his ideas nelson talked about a time. When he had once been broke he had quit acting moved his family to this rural area near mount shasta in california and he had gotten to noah shaman there that he felt that that would be kind of a new twist to bring in a different spiritual guide that they could build the next story around now. Grace coincidentally had been somebody who studied shamanism and he'd read numerous carlos castenada books on the subject and so he decided to incorporate some of nelson's anecdotal interactions that. He had with some of the things that he personally knew from his studies. So when working in the first draft the writers felt that to make it a little bit different because the mother had been the one who did the saving in the first poll guys that this time out it should be the father and the father would be suffering a lack of self confidence so severe that it was spurring the families trajectory of downward mobility the story. Arc would need him to find a way to take charge of his family once again. The plot here is built on the premise. That the father's life is falling apart because he thinks that things are beyond his control. Now it's the women in the family with the power and st freeling must manned up and take charge of his family by destroying the evil before the family gets seduced to their destruction. Now jo beth williams. She had recently lost her grandmother and she was strongly feeling that component to her thinking about the afterlife. And the more the inc her suggestions as well as nelson's into the new script the more invested these actors would feel in the final product and less likely to say no so the got to work on completing the script featuring the feelings without actually knowing if this was really a sure thing and they determined that making it much more personal to the actors would result in a deeper more enriching story instead of just a rehash of the original formula although poltergeists had not been made with sequels mind per se grayson. Victor did realize that the underlying reason for the ghost attacks really was not resolved at the end of the first film. It really ends with feelings. Moving away from their home inquest verdy. But the bodies in the cemetery are still there under the housing complex so the drew a lot from their experience in working with spielberg on poltergeists and they said about scripting their sequel beginning with putting some background information in that was meant to be put in the first film but didn't really make the final cut the not included such things as the restless spirits their nature being settlers who were massacred by native americans back in the nineteenth century that changes a little bit for the course of this film as well as some character touching other reveals that they plan to put in the first film but they never got around to it. The writers devised that the youngest child in the freeling family was wanted. These spirits and spirits would be coming from this colt which would be headed by this minister named cane. He was actually called boat. Ride some of the early drafts but kane manifest himself in human for him and he's very tenacious in pursuing caroline trying to get into where the family is currently residing. The grandmother jesse's house in phoenix arizona. Ten gina baron. The paranormal investigator from first film. She sends out this native american shaman. To help protect the family after discovering that there's this cave under cuesta verde where cain and his followers died. And that's really what's causing the great disturbance. Now craig t nelson like this new script especially that. The incorporated a lot of suggestions for the structure of the story. They were gonna infuse so much more spiritual journey here. In fact nelson thought it was better than the script that he had read for original poltergeist and it was sufficiently different that it could work really as a standalone film so he signed on the also pursued the child actors for the freeling children. Hetero rourke and oliver robbins robbins eagerly signed on just to get out of school where he was being bullied constantly. This was a great respite for him. Hetero aurora was also an easy sign on as well but yet they were still jo. Beth williams that still had side non so freddie fields and the producing team made several trips to nevada where williams was busy shooting. Another film called desert bloom now. Although the new script incorporated a lot of her suggestions she still at that. Point was unsure but she had a lot of friends who were encouraging her. Go ahead and take the role. The money offer was much more generous than the first time out and they truly did want to know what happened to the feelings. After the conclusion of poltergeist. So this was something that the fans would appreciate now with the other actors returning williams determine that really. She couldn't stomach thinking about seeing another actress. Replace her in the role especially since she essentially created a lot of. What's going to be happening in the new film with the revisions that incorporated her ideas. She felt a strong proprietary interest in seeing. It happened so she finally accepted. Now poltergeist. richard edlund return to handle the special effects along with over one hundred of his technicians from his new venture beyond industrial light magic. The boss film company. They began work before the script was even finished. And after reading. the script. Ettlin estimated to grace and victor that it would cost about twelve million dollars to perform all of the things that they wanted. And that actually exceeded the entire. Budget of the first poltergeist. So this was not going to work. Mgm was on its way to bankruptcy so victory and grace revised the scripted had to get the special effects budget down to below five million dollars and the overall total budget was set at eighteen point. Five million now for the director grayson. Victor they didn't want to copycat hooper in spielberg's so they met with a number of potential directors and they were really looking for a new and innovative approach and eventually they settled on this british documentary director. Who wants made medical scientific documentaries while he was with the bbc. Brian gibson now. Gibson's only prior feature credit. Was this little seen. Nineteen eighty new wave music. Riff on a star is born called breaking glass. That really didn't fare so well financially or critically but after this career was relegated mostly to directing commercials music videos and gibson had been hired to work on another film that fell through and that's when this mgm executives said. That grace and victor should meet with gibson to see if he perhaps could work with them. They found him very agreeable and very easy going and gibson won the job because he came in out of all the other people that they talked to the most prepared the most knowledgeable and really the most enthusiastic about doing the movie now gives him when he came in. He ordered major changes to the work that had already been done prior to his approval. Mostly having to do with the effects work now. Some of the crude walked out at this stage due to these changes including production manager. Austin joel who is frustrated by the lack of experience especially by grace and victor. He was replaced by ted howarth. Who worked with the producers on death hunt before this gibson revised the climax. He thought it was too highbrow and ultimately too expensive the effects crew despise this because they thought that by changing it he was negating the endings emotional impact where the freely family is going to vanquish the demon through the power of their love for each other. The love aspect would be changed to the shamans. Ceremonial spear that steve hurlbert onto the body of the great beast to steal his transformation. Back to being the head of the family now. The laid back brian gibson. He really had experience working with actors but this was really his first time working with effects technicians and he didn't realize that if the technicians really need concrete instructions which is something that gives rarely gave because gibson preferred to have all his options open. Ettlin started growing sense because ultimately whatever gifts and seemed to shoot didn't really match with what the effects crew had been told was going to happen and that would either force complete reduce of the footage that gibson had given or the weeks of work that the effects crew had put into each scene which caused obviously a lot of groveling. All around gibson was also infrequently available to answer questions in that resulted in the boss film team consulting either freddie fields or editor. Tom noble further creating inconsistencies with the final product. And when those people seem to be unavailable the boss. Film technicians decided. Well maybe they should just make their own decisions which made the producers ultimately very furious now. It gives an obviously was a surprising choice. Not only was he knew he had no experience with doing anything in the horror genre and he wasn't particularly a fan of it either early in one thousand nine hundred three though gifts and had sought out this psychic advisor named jill cook because he was desperate for any sign of life to his struggling career at that point and cook told him that in the autumn of nineteen eighty-four that gifts in would be offered a feature film with a spiritual subject matter that he should take the offer to helm. Poltergeist came unsolicited in his mail. In november of nineteen eighty-four. So this was the sign he was looking for and gibson was so amazed by jill cooks abilities that she was hired by him to advise him on problem. Solving throughout the production of cooks greatest contributions was in helping to cast will samson as taylor. The native american spiritual guide samson happy realize shaman for the muskogee or creek tribe actually several different tribes. The producers originally. Wanted harry dean stanton to play that role but stanford didn't really like the subject matter. So sanson was hired and he advised to writers on such things as voiding dishonest native american. Stereotypes so he really did come in handy. There grace had wanted to cast julian beck in the role of reverend cain race beck. When he had attended his living heater while in lima peru. now the studio would not ensure back because beck was gravely ill at the time but the psychic joe cook advice gibson just go ahead and cast him because she says that he was going to be good in the role any needed poltergeist to in his spiritual journey to accept the inevitability of his death beck would die from stomach cancer within a few days. After the film's rap at the age of sixty to the surprise of his co stars to whom he never revealed his illness and he'd often talk with them about his future plans plans that he knew. We're probably not ever happen. Voice actor corey burton came in to provide the voice of kane as needed in the post. Production looping the eighty our work after the fact the writers came up with the character of cain. The vision kind of jim jones type a preacher. That was going to lead to the demise of his flock but he would also carry the demeanor and the appearance of robert. Mitchum as reverend. Harry powell the film night of the hunter both cain. An powell sing hymns as the approach. The family house cain also wants caroline because her aura shone brighter than anyone else that had entered the astral plane grace new as soon as he inhabited reverend cain. Everybody was pretty unnerved factor. O rourke cried the first time that she saw jillian back because he he looks so menacing. Gray said that beck's performance in poltergeist is so masterful as the agent of evil that if somebody watches this movie and remembers nothing else they would always remember beck's presence within it now. Brian gibson director was not as open as tobe hooper steven spielberg on letting his actors improvise. He preferred that the stick with the script and his vision but there are some changes that needed to be made for instance robbie was originally scripted to be attacked by bees during one sequence as their bedroom gets filled with several feet of goop after the lava lamp. Overflows oliver robins was allergic to bees. They concocted a different sequence where he would be attacked and cocooned by his own braces on teeth now. Robbins didn't wear braces personally so he had to wear a retainer to look like he had real braces but he could not speak without lisp with the retainer in his mouth so the hired a vocal acting coach to work with robbins through the issue but still much of the list had to be cleared up with agr seat. I guess you don't really hear the list in the end anyway now. One original cast member. That does not return here from the freeling family was dominique dunn. She played the eldest freeling child done. Unfortunately she was murdered by her former boyfriend. Shortly after the release of poltergeist poltergeist to is dedicated to duns memory. Although curiously there is absolutely no mention of her character within the film it's presumed she went off to college. But we never actually learned from any of the dialogue within the film as to what happened to that character. As with the first film the experience of making poultry guys to was extremely physical and draining emotionally. As well jo. Beth williams did find the experience very exhausting. The effects weren't really in place for some of the emotional scenes so williams had to conjure up emotions by imagining very painful things happening to the people she loved. Most she especially disliked a particular sequence where she gets violently thrown around for kind of a would be rape sequence involving kurt. Demonic possessed has been christie nelson also found the sexual assault attempt uncomfortable to have to perform you know for days on end. His character is drunken state also. Hit a little too close to home for nelson because nelson had recently gone sober following quite a few years of alcohol and drug abuse. The job with williams grew unnerved after learning that they used real skeletons that were purchased from a medical supplier in india for the cavern sequence in this film something reportedly that was also done. Although she didn't really know it for the first film will sampson the real life shaman. An actor initiated a burial ceremony to try to quell the spirits of the real life skeletons and interestingly things. Calm down on the set. After that. Now joe beth williams was disappointed that some scenes guy cut out including her favorite scene from the finished film. It involved diane and steve. They were making breakfast during the scene. And then there are startled when the toaster begins floating in mid air. Steve jams his slices of bread into this feisty toaster and the toaster flips upside down dumping the slices on his head kind of a comic relief segment. There in the middle of this film williams did enjoy very much working with nelson so that was at least some relief for her and she hoped that they could contribute a much lighter film down the road that did not involved decomposing skeletons. Although unfortunately that never came to pass. I mentioned this film was also physically exhausting to the actors had to hang in harnesses in front of this blue screen for about three and a half weeks every day all day long while somebody was shining a flashlight in their faces the harnesses were time consuming to get on so the actors had to go all day holding from going to the bathroom up to seven hours. A day really lambswool was there on the straps to protect some of the sensitive body areas but after prolonged where they really started hurt anyway especially when they were being lifted upwards. They really dug in to those sensitive areas. Gibson also hired swiss artist h r gear for some design. Work if you know that name. Giger is famed for his zeno. Morph designed for nineteen seventy nine film alien. Geeky had worked with gibson before on the science fiction. Horror project called the tourist that universal pictures was going to do but then it was scrapped when they decided to make e. instead gibson told he wanted him to design something that would scare him personally. Most so geeky had this recurring. Kind of nightmarish vision of worms. That were growing under his skin or living inside his body and at some point he would just throw up and it would just be worms coming out so spinning off of that. The writers designed that steve would be able to ingest worm by drinking a bottle of moscow in his depression now was not going to be available to be on set all the time he made. He can make a couple of visits but for months on end he would be in his native switzerland so he sent his friend and director. Cornelius connie the freeze to advise the affects crew for the worms metamorphosis into what would ultimately become the great beast that the nemesis during the film's climax originally. The beast was to be this ghost like monster that has all the spirit energy surrounding him but the effects team didn't have the budget to make all of this because it would require like ninety optical effects to achieve so they decided they were gonna make it much more of a mechanical creature and they would have to simplify a lot of those complex. Giger designs noble. Craig he was a paraplegic actor. Who lost an arm and both legs. While serving in the vietnam war he was put into a physical monster. Suit dubbed hear the horror baby had the face of kane now fans of gig and of alien will note similarities to the zeno more life cycle in alien and the worms ten into the great beast within bolted guys to and coincidentally both films feature a character named kane as part of that metamorphosis eager despised with the effects crew did with his design. Many of his designs were not even used in the film and he says that one of the main problems is that his creatures are terrifying if you put them in the realm of reality but the makers of poltergeist to threw them into a fantasy realm where they really weren't as scary as they should be poltergeist who was partially filmed in chatsworth california. That's where reportedly the ended up shooting atop a real life native american burial ground. They were a little nerve to find out that later but luckily no strange incidents did occur there but they did experience those recurring difficulties while they were shooting at the studio. A lot of lighting. The camera equipment frequently had mishaps the crew felt. There seemed to be bad energy all around while they were there as if there was this unseen poltergeist them that was causing all this trouble so samson volunteered to visit the set at four. Am each day during the cave sequence to perform his shaman purification ritual. Few knew that he actually did this. But notably the producers do report that the vibe changed immediately when samson started doing this and the production did run remarkably smoothly afterward a private residence in altadena. California served as the exterior of grandma. Guesses phoenix abode. There was also a full size replica of that house constructed on the mgm lot to allow the pitching and shaking needed to simulate the hunting experience for the house. The house is second story in fact was built atop this device that rocked around like a mechanical bowl and a miniature of the neighborhood was created for a lot of the overhead shots that they would use to add special effects to later. Unfortunately many scenes were excised from the film some directly from the final script and some cut out from the final cut. One involved this subplot. Cain first appearing in caroline's dreams one where he tears into his chest to pull out his heart for her to touch and he gets stopped by. Taylor who can also enter dreams we find out others involved ten genus obsession with cuesta verde getting the assistance of dr less from the original poltergeist to excavate. The freeling lot discovering cave system in need of markings underneath a doctor less and her assistance would soon enter too far within the cave system and they would venture into the so-called side of the title and never return. It was also more backstory in the script for taylor's character about his tribal ancestors who once believed in kane spiritual mission becoming disillusioned and then leaving prior to this doomsday spewing. Cain trapping his flock within the cave. That would lead ultimately to their deaths. The staff that kills came at the end is supposed to have been passed down from those ancestors and much of the story line. If you're really interested still remains and james caan novelization that was done from one of those early scripts. Jerry goldsmith also returned as the composer for poltergeist to goldsmith grew frustrated though with the iraq decisions that were causing a frequent post-production changes every time they cut something or at something that that would require a lot of re scoring and resulted in a lot of rushed compositions mostly regurgitating some of the themes that he used in the original film. He was especially saddened to see many of the sequences between caroline and grandma jess were cut from the final film. Because he thought that's where he was delivering the strongest emotional compositions. Those were all completely removed. Mgm it. They were deeply in debt and they really needed poltergeist to to be a smashing success. Gibson had turned in this one hundred and thirty minute rough cut but it was deemed by the studio to soft and it really lacked a lot of scares. They felt so empty. M ordered re-shoots with additional jolts placed in at periodic intervals. Gibson was very unhappy. They were going to do this. He didn't have any part with you. Re editing or the reshoots. The studio had boss films art supervisor. John bruno film additional jump scares to be put into the movie and the effects drew added additional scares including a caravan in the astral plane and momentary zombie attacks imagined by the family the also trimmed the runtime ultimately to about ninety one minutes to maximize the ethical showings upon released. It really recoup some of their money sequences giving more relationship with grandma jess and tailor. Those were scaled back significantly as well as confrontations that occurred between kane and gina and taylor and many scenes during the editing process. We're jumbled chronologically in the process making it somewhat continuity wise jump around for people who really pay attention to those things. Mgm did invest ten million dollars advertising campaign to blanket the american market but despite a big opening week public is to did fate fast and it only made forty million dollars domestically although it did make a lot more money in european markets as with poltergeist the visual effects earn the film on academy award nomination. Here a dubious award nomination did go to zelda rubinstein who received eight worst supporting actress nomination for the razzies of that year. As far as what. I think about poltergeist too. I do think that it's it's not nearly as mesmerizing as a scare. Fast as the original poltergeist. The sequel does find some new and interesting wrinkles. I don't think there's quite enough fresh material here that to really say eight those who are hungry for the spielberg heights of the first film. But i do think it still has a very solid cast. The special effects here is still very top. Notch for a mid-nineteen eighties. Release all of this practical effects. The creep factor is certainly high during certain sequences particularly when some of the gory affects. Come into play late in the film but director. Brian gibson. He he's not quite able to generate the requisite suspense and the to make this anything more than occasionally uneasy. Shocker and that's despite. Some of the jump scares that were thrown in in post production by mgm. So if it's not that scary now it must have really been not that scary in that original rough cut not bringing back. Michael gray's mark victor. It does keep the characterizations for consistent with what we knew in the first film. But without spielberg's as a filmmaker. I think the delivery four poltergeists to is not nearly as remarkable and while poltergeist easily featured a handful of memorably scary scenes and real moments of intrigue poltergeist to really stands out ultimately for beck's formidable performance. His gaunt phase imposing demeanor really makes him a good foil for this naive family. Very creepy to observe the effects here ultimately are the real show and while there occasionally gruesome. They're not really always terrifying. Sometimes it's hard to watch not because it's scary but because some of it is kinda nauseating chainsaw attacks to family station wagon. That seems kind of silly. Robbie's braces come alive initially. That's but you know. In retrospect it's kind of silly idea as well. There are other mile jolts. But i don't think that most people are gonna cover. There is out of fear with the exception of that. That giger designed vomit monster poltergeist to a dud. Personally even though most people consider it a disappointment. I do think it's really only if interest for curious. Fan of the first film's backstory. You're going to get some of that here. I don't think it's as bad as its reputation. Would have you believe. But i do think that if anything it does prove that the grass is not always greener on the other side. And that's why. I give pulled the guys to the other side three stars out of four three stars on my scale. I mean say it for people who like this kind of movie. I think it's acceptable fair for people who like the first film and want to see more of these characters and to get more of that backstory. I do think active there but anybody looking for that roller coaster ride of thrills and horrors that the first film was going to be disappointed that it doesn't really generate that momentum here julian back though is worth watching and i think ultimately what makes this film recommendable for me is that performance. Unfortunately he died within days of finishing this film so we never got to see that big franchise that would spend four from julian beck in the short amount of time that he appears in this film he becomes one of the great whore villains of the nineteen eighties. I feel so three stars out of four is what i give poltergeist now. Obviously i'm going to be continuing on this series with poltergeist. Three from one thousand nine hundred ninety eight on the next episode and if nothing else poltergeist three really does make poltergeist to seem even better. But there's a lot to that production that is worth investigating so even if you're not a big fan of poltergeist three. I do encourage you to check out the next episode covering the nineteen eighty-eight phil if you have your own thoughts on poultry guys too that you want to impart me.

All the Right Moves - A Podcast Preview and Supporter Poll

"Here's the situation you guys are going to go on. Your lives are GonNa Choose. Great successes nine hoping praying but no matter what is going to bring the seldom going to be a moment like tonight when you hold off when you can achieve something together. They never take away from your friends. Your family a win tonight is going to give them something to be proud of something naked believing the next forty minutes are going to find out who you are and what you may not and you're GonNa make me proud. Hello now Blang listeners. This is Arnie coast now playing. And I'm here to let you know that. Today we released our third show in the Tom. Cruise retrospective series. It's all the right moves. Teenage football drama. Tom Cruise plays a high school students in a Blue Collar. Pennsylvania town. He's trying to get out on a football scholarship but his clashes with his coach. Craig t Nelson season put that in jeopardy. It also has Leah Thompson as cruises girlfriend. And here's a clip. From that review was there maybe ad-libbed referenced who chose Three D. Because when they're in his room. Lisa's like what's that and Lisa played by Leah Thompson? And he's like oh. It's an undersea dome. It's the first thing I drew. I like the fact that she complements and like. Oh it's great. I'm like you'd have no idea like literally. Do Not know what you've never seen drafting. Yeah Engineer Drying. Yes with this work or like. It'd be like me trying to talk about sports. You're trying I don't know so let's just move on. You WanNa get to the football game. Is that what you WANNA do? Well I wanted to understand what was going on characters because like I said I like sports movies when it's about other things the fact that we're dealing with teen pregnancy and poverty. I can go with those concepts. The fact that it all hinges on the winning the game. Okay then what are they going to do in the game? And how is the relationship between coach and cruise so vital? I think what we're all saying. Is it really isn't and cruise. Doesn't even really care about while he just wants to do something else. And this is the only way out and so it just kind of changes the importance of this game and the fact that it comes in the middle also just makes it seem like this is a different kind of football movie. Yeah again they have one other game after this. They don't really call that out till act this thing. How can this not be the last game? That's so bizarre. It makes sense. Your last game is the climax of the film. You have a game you lose you learn something and then you buy that to the last. Yeah that's exactly the sports movie tropes. That's why say this really isn't a sports movie. It's a drama in which the character plays sport football game in the middle of it. It's a trope is. We're down to the wire. We only have two games left. We have to win these and then the big climax is will they make the play here? It's like we have two games left. I'm like Yep there's the trope Oh we never see the second game okay. I guess he does score during the second game. But we'll get there. Yeah let's get to the only football game we're going to see. I say that in air quotes because even though this is done by really good cinematographers not only Michael Chapman in the director's chair but John Dupont. And one of his early movies cinematographer of Diehard Director of speed. Yeah not a great director. But I don't think many cinematographers are. I'll just throw it out there. But a great lensman. This movie looks really good. It's got again you Dec- sentimentality coming out of this. Every time we see this town there's sort of a foggy that makes it feel like the natural or something like that there's some nostalgia and some magic to the fact that these people are playing this game amid all of this gray rust. And so what's going to happen? I can't tell what's going on and not just because I don't understand football but because it's all being done in montage where crowd reactions and a scoreboard telling us how it's going and not the actual place which is kind of how sports movies go. Yeah you never watch the whole game or that would be the entire movie which would be an interesting thing. I'll just throw that out. There is an idea a real time sports movie that takes place during a game. I kinda wonder this film was going to do it because like I said this is about forty minutes in and I'm like Oh. This is the big game against the undefeated team that his scholarship is writing on. They're just going to show us the whole game. I guess because there's an hour left. I'm surprised how much time they do. Spend on this game given that it's mid point in the movie but yeah montage of the game and seeing the score and bringing it in only at the end for the important play. No let me be clear. Montages of people's faces in the crowd smiling and cheering and the scoreboard. We're not seeing the field. I understand you don't show real time the game but I want to see a move. I want coach to say. Here's the play you're going to do know what that is and then see it executed. Well he already told us what he's GonNa do for defense and I think what they do show us. Is that defense. And if you don't get it like I think we don't get it. It's like okay. That's just people playing football. I don't really understand what's happening. I saw extreme closeups of people running into each other in the mud. I did not see anyone. Throw the ball catch the ball. That's just during the end of the game because most of the game. It's not raining. It's not until that last quarter or whatever when I guess they make. It rained ramp up the tension and the mud and just make it real tense. This is standard stuff. Yeah it feels pretty standard. You're not going to see the coach. Give every play and then see the play executed unless it's an important moment where succeeds and it's risky or it fails and a character is demolished as we see here do not want to see their talent on the field but this film's not about that. Stewart no yeah. I don't WanNa see it in this movie. No I don't because I'm already told they're not talented. He's not GonNa make it in the NFL. So He's the engineering scholarship. They spend too much time on this game as it is. I feel interesting. I think they cut the whole film. And they're like okay. We need twenty minutes. Make that football scene twenty minutes. I think you're right but to me someone that doesn't know much about football. I wanted to see more. This is that the movie for you then. Go Watch a football movie. This is drama about a steel mill. Worker go watch the waterboy with Adam Sandler. Lots of football amount one. Yeah okay well then let me ask how you feel about this movie. How do you like the movie that you're getting so far? We're halfway in. Every penny that is donated from listeners. Goes to making the show the best it can be and making sure we're able to keep the show's coming out as regularly as we do.

And right now the people who donated so far in this donation drive. Get to pick what that series is going to be.

While the house caves in on a cell phone sucked into another dimension to my favorite lime in move the headstones. But you'll have bodies didn't show. This movie has a ton of great references.

I get it but the lunging coffins bursting out of the ground right. I was like whatever but so so okay. So has has the famous line. They're here which is all yeah with Caroline. Front of the T.

Grab your coloring books and grab your dog game. Put Down Your App House and your apple tones so back in the day all right. Tv's not run twenty four hours. No they did not. At the end of the broadcasting day they would play the national anthem along with Like a montage of like eagles. The country and shit was national anthem or it was the okay then. It would go to static. It'll be static the whole night until early in the morning when we pick back up. Okay now that's different from now because now everything is twenty four hours. A world doesn't shuttle no it stays on constantly. Let me tell you growing up as a kid that was my. I mean. That was my white noise of all to and watched absolutely a super lay on wakeup mill. Night with the the snow going and it would be very calming relaxing then. Nineteen eighty-eight happened and this fucking movie came out in this movie. Had Carol Anne talking through the Ghost through the snow and the ghost entering the house to the TV of the snow. And from that point on I no longer sleep with the fucking snow on TV. Because I was scared at a my nine year. Old shitless pants now. Are you talking about the age of the original? Are you talking three on the original busy? Rich eighty-eight full.

So then you've got the actor who played the co-leader Cain Julian Beck who died At the age of sixty when he lost his battle with stomach cancer in six five sixty. Are you hitting me now? I know he was sick but during the filming of poltergeist to he looked like he was ninety years old or guy stomach cancer. Does it have ripped him to shreds. But I've always joked about how creepy looking was and shit and then I found that he was sick and I felt kind of bad for about five minutes about five minutes but then but his character was snow. Creepy man area. She is you scary Shit. So the net the third death As do with an actor by name a will Sampson who played pastic actor by the it goes Taylor in the second film.

Heather Rourke it was also it was it was most track because she was the youngest and it was also. Strasse a unexpected. It was it was. It was one of those deaths. Just come out of nowhere. Yeah and we. We did a little reading on it and found. I thought she had died of cancer. I right wrong I was wrong. The portal thing actually died of a four-inch swollen intestinal block and she died during surgery. Right die during surgery. She had. I believe a form of disease And Wall in surgery she Fortunately passed on at the end. I'm Lee was during filming. If I'm not mistaken no because she just after. Yeah Yeah. 'cause she died. February first nineteen eighty-eight so like formats for the film came out so then she was one kid in a movie actually didn't aggravate me. Yeah no she was actually great. Actually it was cute. Yeah adorable fortunate. She was twelve when she died. So that's that's very sad but yeah. So that's that's Is what gave rise to the poltergeist cursed and rightfully so because it use row bones and in the scene in the first movie and who yourself is just so the I want itself I I is is Great. Because it's it's sort of a slow burn But also has like digest enough Moments in between to keep you on edge to you. Get to that finale. Which is just horrified cheese young. 'cause like you said it's a that's a very good term for it slow. 'cause actually start out everybody knows getting a kick out of it. There have fun with it. I mean there were like the chair going across or they got it all marked on the floor. Yeah so senior Senator and then they have the scene that that is. I mean there's quite a few occurrences in the film that that we as peril skaters have have heard of in real life cases like chairs moving but also that scene where she she leaves a room. The kitchen she comes back in all the the cabinets are open. Here's stack. That was awesome. Yeah and we've had people who've had cases like that actually happened. Oh yeah yeah so I mean it. It's little things like that. That just build up build up to it yet. So she did. It was triangle. Yeah she gasps and turns around and that's it yeah and I'm like okay. That's yeah I mean. She's acting awful calm for somebody who's chairs this all stack themselves and like seconds. I know it was cool. Why she's playing with I because it. It didn't seem at the time that it was going to harm. The no it was it was pure. I mean especially something. Like that is so benign. Don't blame the tree for trying to eat the kid. Yeah he's annoying little bucks when I tell you what that clown and Holter guys is. What scared me from clowns? When I was a kid I think the iconic moments in horror movie history to be honest with you. Yeah that you know trying to throw the blanket over not even that not even that just when he looks and it's gone and then it cools fuck in you hear the bills you hear the bells. Coaching looks and it's gone. And you're like Oh shit. Yeah so that scare me as a Kid. Not It But I got over my peer clowns longtime ago. They're not scared they're they're sad very sad so all right. The sequel poltergeist to Was directed by Brian Gibson and released on May twenty third nineteen eighty six and his city year following events of the first one and offers an alternate explanation for the ghost's origin now the film also develops the identity and backstory of the beast who had lived in nineteenth century as a religious zealot named rent. Reverend Henry Kane Played Julia Beck. Cain was leader of Utopian Colt. Who in anticipation of the end of the world had steeled themselves in a cavern located directly below? What later became the freelance property? Execs are just going to say that the skeletons that came up in the pool came out of the crypt. Right are the I get the crip or the county ground cavern. That had locked everybody in so I was like Nah now. Cain is anxious to possess Carolina in order to continue manipulating his followers. After the goes follow following attack the free leans at their current household. Aided by an American Indian Shaman named Taylor Will Sampson The failings managed to escape from Kane and his followers a second time now. That was neat. I liked the fact that they involve the whole native American Thing in this movie the meditation the facing the beast and all that I mean yes. Poltergeist to was a huge step down granted not nearly as many cool effects right. The Tequila worm seen was stupid. A look for for a seven year old kid. That was creepy. She was there. Yeah the way. Think grinned ship. Yeah Yeah but down and let me tell her. Seven year old kid. Cain was a scary motherfucker to. Oh God Hain was creepy issues. Yeah I was already shit. I was in eighty eight. I was already Eighty six I was already in service. I was eighteen. Nineteen years old at that point and I saw that bastard and I didn't like him. Jesus scary when the fucker. This is where you need to keep his little song. Okay Yeah I'll put an insert. So what about the guys three all about? Well let me fucking tell you you greedy bastards. Okay they're back again for the third fucking time that inside the box that is put that in there and they're still looking for Carolina had rourke in this riveting and climactic finale to the poltergeist trilogy sent by her parents to live in Chicago High Rise with her aunt. Nancy Ellen Uncle Tom skerritt and cousin. Lara Flynn Boyle Carol. Ann Lewis Faith demons more frightening than ever before as they move from invading homes to taken over an entire skyscraper while Wong the hell the ghetto. Yeah I mean what is ghost in the machine and she said Oh even more terror. It's A. It's a Damn high-rise a high-rise yeah. You know you go from suburban America to know to fuck in the trump tower effort but yeah all right now. Let's let's the real quick The rotten tomatoes score on. This is a eighteen percent from eight from seventeen Critic reviews perfect twenty two percent from seventeen thousand seven hundred twenty two shit that's a lot is a stinker stinker Once again our ratings system go check it out episodes about it. We'RE NOT GONNA go over here so that being said let's get into the review. Show absolutely do what's his piece of. Shit I'd love to okay. We Got Egg Sausage Bacon. Be Oh I cook you set. The table has caroline. How would you feel if some Klaff Toji had supernatural powers? How do you feel deep down inside? One word only maybe He's able to create some sort of mass hysteria. It's foreleg BASCUS. Always a great act. Charolais creates the priority to you. You made her talk about the and he made hover. Men's lots and you feel too cold is devouring going to count to Three Carolina. And when I snap my fingers you will awaken one two three all right well. Holy Shit that. Yeah definitely that would you. You made a great comment. This is halfway meshing more than part way through it. You said that this is worse than you remember. Yeah this is worse than I remember for. Sure I didn't even. I didn't even remember the movie correctly. I didn't either but then I that promise earlier wanted to. It was all blending together. Yeah but yeah this one one and two. I remember very well because one I love to is to me was okay. Yeah it was all right. Yeah this one here. I didn't see but maybe twice. Maybe yeah armor but then I thought certain things that I completely forgot almost everything about this movie. If I felt like you we take one. Two and three and in one on itself is completely awesome. And then we'd take the better parts of two and three in this merge them into one make one whole convenient cohesive a movie you know. Yeah but see they sit there and and I guess they So it off the bat we are introduced to caroline in a building In Chicago what I guess. It looks like the John Hancock Bill. Too Big antennas on Herbie Hancock Building. Hurry Herbie Hancock. Yeah so you don't even see like any scene with parents discussing sending her away To make her safe eighty that just cut. She's already fucking just there. He's been there and she's watching a window. All men out there washing a window and then she looks away. She's playing with speaks bill. It which first of all fucked that because he just no do squeegee and they live on the seventieth floor movie yeah and he's just outside the window like screeching is A. There's a cloth hanging over the rail. He's on seven. Slorc should be windy as fuck. Yes and there is no win that motherfucker know it and first of all still fuck that. Yeah so he disappears and then she's like you know whatever and all of a sudden he goes towards the window and in the there's nothing this whole fucking building. Every opposite side is building every hallway every office side of the hallway or is opposite of the room as Amir Florida ceiling mirrors. Yeah Florida's annoying department store changing store searing failing mirror type of room. That she's in one side is like three sections and it's Florida's ceiling mirrors and the middle section is the inside of her fucking door for this room. That makes no falcons and it is the seriously ugly. But it's it's it's you know par for the course from this piece of Shit. It set up that way so they can do all of these stupid ass creepy scenes later on where the mirror show something but the real world doesn't and this is. This is the reason. There was no poltergeist. Four right I mean it just couldn't have got any fucking worse. It's not scary when you show it every five minutes. No it's not all right so she she. Did you tell these? Nice folks that you know. She's looking at the window. Washer do when he goes down. He looks at it happen. Yeah so Yeah so she looks when the Washer goes down she goes to the side to take a look at him and when she looks down she sees Cain there instead. He's already there he shown up and he is a doc. Dr Emmerdale Brown. Look him up like this is not the. Canes Movie Gentlemen was dead. Yeah this is. The poor guy passed away. Miss this guy here. Oh man lie he he looks like one of the golden girls is horrible. Yeah so then Her aunt uncle come in the room. And there's talking in the Viper Uncle Viper Yeah Thompson. Eric Tile Scared Miyama Viper in is moving and then we entered a whole bunch talking. Yeah talking about the party. That's going on tonight. There's some party going on the are going to go to a daughter. The VIPERS DOT COM which is a Murphy's on sorry Not Murphy what's Murphy's partner name? Oh Louis Louis Louis Louis. Step daughter She wants to go to a party. And while it's going on all of a sudden like again mirrors everywhere all the elevators where where the buttons are all mere sections all of a sudden. They start cracking all the way up to the middle all off floors yet because Kane is now any the building Berlin literally in the building that in in the bill he is in the building. We cut to them To apparently Tom scared is the property manager of the building. Just he goes to work in the building. The wife tries to take the kids down to meet their ride for school. I know I don't know if he's the property manager or he's liked the architect in this bill because this place is under construction right as we noticed in several scenes when they walked through these halls. Still the DRYWALL. Fricken Trim and Shit. I don't think the architect actually lives inside the building walls being bill. I don't know I don't think so. I think he's appropriateness. Yeah who knows it's AIDS. They're all doing fucking coke when making movies like this. It is a necessity. No wonder why. Yeah Yeah so they. Finally the mom gets the kids school and then she goes to her job which is part of the. Oh we can't forget though they sprint down seventy floors throw them all and managed to cut off van. That is already being the parking garage and not even tired. Not Tired no sweat. No NO NO NO HARDEN NOEL. Lack of breath nothing. They're just Oh. Hey I caught you. Good let's go yet. So they drag these little shits to school and dropped Carolina off of course and she is at a gifted slash emotional support. Our problem openly challenged school Yes yeah basically for kids that have gifts but are fucked and him. Yeah and every course everybody. In the school she gets other dismissing Little Shit kids who all reaching a hands out making fun of her saying that she see a ghost and all this shit. Yeah in. That's just typical fighting Brett Shit as kids and so at this point like apparently all of the all of the Teachers staff at the school know about the whole incident and Caroline's house from the first movie. Yes how they know. I don't fucking know that there's no explanation no way that there's not even an exposition dump at any point in this movie. That explains now why she was even brought all they know. They said they sent her there. Yeah but they never said why now. Why is she going to the school? They they kind of explained it because I guess they think because she has been on the other side. Got these gifts. This bullshit fucking snow. The the headmaster's a psychiatrist so there to help the kids through their trauma whatever trauma they suffered. He doesn't believe that he that she's you know went to this is she did. He just believes that she she comes from a broken home and then she's got this a power mass hypnotism as she can make people believe what she's saying she seen yeah But yeah that'd be like imagine y'all emptying your wallet and giving me Yo cash. Give me your dollars go. Shit I'd be like Gimme some. Yeah and so Yes then we get scene with. The MOM is at her job which that museum Getting the part of the area ready for the party tonight yes And then we cut to a scene where one of the janitors goes to Tom. Skerritt tell that there's something wrong with building viper. We got a problem fiber Incan Viper. And take him to the heating air conditioning duct area and there's ice everywhere because Isis fucking scary. I mean that's knows scarifying ship my pants when I saw the house. Holy Shit because I was thinking electric bill now Yeah so she's at school. And you know this whole scene with the head doctor telling like some visitors all about the school and what they do and he's real. He's asking them in a glass in a room was see through glass and they're watching him more. Fuck Amir's right and watching these kids like they're little experiments exactly right and it's pointless it's just talk pointless. It's just it's sucks it really does. And so From there we go to we introduced. Oh Let me see. John could have so while that's going on so that's going on While they're in a glass case and absorbing observing alert thou observing Caroline She sees came through the reflection in the glass again. This absolutely has no emotional reaction whatsoever. She's just like she's cool complex. He's like Oh shit again like who is that is that is that DOC Brown. No no cane faulk and While after that happens we cut to Zelda somewhere who nowhere other side of the country porn t donaldson. She has an attack because she somehow senses. She's got fucking jet. I four yet as we say. She's using the forest. He didn't before feels a disturbance. Are you are you like driving with your eyes? Open are using the force it but she senses that. Cain is founder so she over pours her T- tells old hag she's with a C. You later you've to go and fuck on a plane and goes and gone so then then we're in a therapy session with caroline doctor. And he's trying to help her through with some hypnosis and Shit And and she's reliving stuff. That happened the first two movies. And he's like I didn't see the first two movies. Well Fuck you and yeah no shit. I didn't see the first two movies like I know. What the fuck did. Yeah so then she leaves and while before she leaves she's like staring again there. There are the the guests are behind to a mirror watching from the room. Yes and she keeps at him and he keeps running back and forth. Look in the mirror to look in her looking at her and then she leaves and then she she did leave before the thing went right. Let me see hang on. I don't know if she left before she did. Oh and Arnaud happened okay. So he's looking back and forth and then all of a sudden in in their she sees a come up to the table so she takes often leaves and he is like what the Hell he looks back. He sees the hand in in the glass in the mirror. The glad that the fucking the ham piece of a fucking Coffee Cup Chuck's at him and breaks the the part of the two way mirror. I mean bust the fuck like that. And then he acts like. Oh She's just making me bill. Just imagine this shit. Yeah this this doctor. So he's a heads up his ass that he's he tells guest that it was another incident of mass had hypnotism where posts hypnotise. She made us all think we saw the Cup flying and then she made you take Your Cup and smashing. Air Post. Hypnotic suggests shooter. Yeah it's it's dumb fellow. She keeps looking over there. Like what are you fucks looking at? I love that part. She just kind of staring leans over. Looks around says what in the hell these motherfuckers doing here? All y'all fuck off. I'm out so we cut through that night and the parents are getting ready for the party. And they're talking some of the bullshit. I love like you can hear the plane going down folks more like grabbed parachutes time to jump. Yeah more interaction with the kids and then they take off and then we get this stupid scene where the parents are walking down a hallway and again once the Hallway has spoken. Mir's Oh either. Side has three doors for other apartments. That are going to be built or whatever walking down the hallway and then you get a shot whereas passenger door in the mirror. The door opens and a cane. Motherfucker comes out. Yeah and what's the point of all right? It's supposed to be creepy. Because these and they don't see them they don't they don't see him at all the doors on in the real world don't actually open. Yeah and so at this point is like the this like this second or third time. This has happened with mirrors yet because there was another seen earlier where The the when the Tom skerritt and Lewis were talking. He was looking in a mirror fixing his ties. Bow Tie and then she was talking to sitting facing him talking her back to the mirror and then you he takes off but in the Mirror. His reflection is still there. Yeah that was pretty cool. And she turns around and she turns around. His reflection turns around the walks out. He's already walked out so she's taking but yet still no panic. No no mum in the Real Guy. Damn world anybody should happen. They're pissing their panel screaming. You're shitting a brick and you're hauling ass and like people are like men these all people act like they're on crack and you have to get off crack because they're seen shit YEP because they're entirely to their entirely too mellow for this embraer thing and at that point that's like again when the scene when the walking in the hallways a third time this has happened and I was Kinda creepy second time not so much third time. You're like okay I fucking get it. Yeah Stop It. We get it every time you turn around. And there's a wall somewhere that nobody's looking at Canes GonNa Stick His fucking at top. It's whatever's not scary to knowing this shit So then we cut to a scene where the two girls are talking in. The Carolinas tells her to go to the Party. Moesha's want to and they do and then they do another seeing the same fucking seen the bitch ready in the bathroom and the shot is of her looking in the mirror and then in the mirror. Carolina opens the door. Pops her head in says. Hey you great Yada Yada Yada but then when the camera turns left the doors closed doors closed you open the door and callans right there and she says the same thing she said in the mirror. Yeh but yet again not panic. No no that's scary. No panic yeah the case that the girl just Just see at this point. Everybody has had a mirror like issue or mirror problem. And they're just like Oh. This happens every fucking day also started having these these encounters and shit and no reaction whatsoever the nineteen eighties mirrors full of like. We'll see back in the eighties. Everybody was bad ass right. So no fuck that we got Demon Mare island. Give Shit Fuck so cameron bitches name. Was this girl's name. What's her name again? The daughter Donna. Donna Donna goes the party The bunch of hipster kids. They're a bunch of eighties hipster kids. They're the parents in the there so they don't really have a party and so they're trying to figure out where they're going to go to Party. Yup So then Donna's like hey. I got my Dad's keys to the building. Go Fuck some shit up. We're going to the pool go so this is going to go to the pool. Meanwhile Caroline's backing her part in her room playing with speaking spell yup the most evil of toys ever of course it is And she keeps sensing she's got this spider sense going on that she keeps sending something going on and she thinks something out the window she goes over to the window and this is where you start to the idea that he is controlling all the mirrors in this building. Yep because as she's walking towards their if you notice Her reflection is not doing things the same time as her net and the thing is what it is the mayor behind her shows his reflection as he's walked like when she goes toward their and it shows him on the damn lift again and then she's looking at the the real window and nothing there right so yes he lives in that dimension in the Mirror dimension so install you paranormal people out there who believe mirrors our dimensions. I think that's what they were trying to do with this fucking movie since she walked back towards a mirror to see what's going on and she puts her hands on it and all of a sudden other hands come out of the mirror grab her hands and she looks at her faces an all full old foe face and she's entirely to calm she's like let me go bit Jeff. He lifts her up. And she screaming and wiggling like let's go and then she she trying to get out all of a sudden she hears Rubel Rubel or Zelda's voice. Who's on a plane? Rubel Zelda Rozelle. He's on a plane and she's mentally projecting this thought to caroline to break the mirror break the mirror and so she breaks Amir Caroline. Use The foles. Yes the force be with. You Always Carolina. So she breaks a she gets out and from that point on. It is just one nonstop run like race to get away. And buccaneers. It is it is fucking stupid Then we get a shot After ten GINA WARNS OFF. You know wars. The kid tells her what to do to get out of the room. Then we see her calling the doctor and bitching him out saying mother. Fucker is your fault. Yeah you made a talk about it. You made it remember it. Nine knows where she's at. Yoyo Fatma Fugger now. All get there beers. Meanwhile this awesome a plane. She's not fucking happen. Exact all she doing all this from a plane because she is a bad ass as so Carolina's in the apartment freaked out trying to figure out what to do. Meanwhile Donna and her dumb ass friends are trying to break into the pool. They break in and then dominant entered in her GIUFFRA. Dude leave to go to to the Went to security room gay room to 'cause they saw officer. Krupp he runs off guard. Goes off for some reason? I think he's called off so they go in there to fuck with the cameras. So what does she do? She does a typical thing. It was put it on a loop and Blah Blah runs about two hours puts it on loop Yada Yada Yada. Meanwhile Caroline's running out of the apartment And she goes the elevator but then Kane is in the elevator window so she can't go in there and you know freak out she just kinda stairs yeah. She's very calm about just like oh I gotta get away. Can't do it So after they do the loop her juif boyfriend is like hey. Let's go to the supermarket supermarket. That gets this fucking building.

Meanwhile care still trying to get away and and she's running down the stairs to get to the parking garage The boyfriend Giuffra Pharaon. Donna Done Jack. They've done Jack. Two six packs beers also would ask chips and Shit and they go tag and they go back to the role things or interrupted back to security room right. Start fucking with her friends but then they see Carol land on fucking monitor parking garage and they're like Oh shit and so they had to run down the grass go gator and apparently canes chain Kane Kane is chasing her yeah either other dimensional somewhat but you hear his voice and he's like don't run away we love you. You can lead us to the light and Blah Blah Blah and all this shit And so he. He's running from him but then she does this weird stupid ass backwards. Run RUN is not even a run is kicking up perfect. She's like back back back. Turn around go forward. Yeah I'll try to go back and then I'll turn around and go forward. And she goes down by this puddle. Yeah this funding puddle. That has no business being in here. This is indoors and I'm guessing they're thinking you know you look up and think. Oh it's just a leaky pipe. Whatever maybe it is because this building has all kinds of fucking problems now because Cain is fucking up and she standing in this water and here come these fucking hands. Yeah and it lights up and you're like Oh Jeez and it turns into like a pool like two foot glowing glowing fogging pool on the ground. Yeah and tweedle dee internal bits come out right giuffre. Oh boy and you throw Donna. Yeah can you for oath? Oh Lord come running around here and they see her struggling in the world. They actually see this. Yeah and they. They're they're actually way to calm and then they finally run over and try to help her and everybody gets bone yanked to fuck in the pool. Yeah it's like getting the pool bitch. It's a good time that's right and I'm sitting on you. See these green fucking hands all old and decrepit. I mean Jeez and the thing is at this point And they're only still there because they white right okay if any other race and it world they being gone. They'd be like fuck this. I'm out. Yeah yes but they'd been gone when I seen him fucking America. I'm out I'm done by people. Why why people stay in the house when it goes in house. That's it that's what is that what it is. I'm not then we get to the same or viper is interrogating the stupidest teenagers. Yeah he gets called into by security because they found the kids there but founding fucking kids in pools eh got a bunch of kids in here fucking in the pool and banned the pool fucking origin going on the poor guy. Clean the pool the pool now because there's a dummy took a shooting pool. I don't know why Eddie Murphy had so many good references. I don't know it's awesome so anyway. So they tell them that they were they. Were down there with Donna. And so he's okay. Well Don is in trouble. 'cause she should been watching caroline so he goes down to the pool himself and while he's in there again he's looking in in their reflection where with the pool behind him yet and then all of a sudden. Here's something around. Flash LIGHT TURNS AROUND IN THE POOL was fucking frozen fucking frozen asked. Pawn is crack looking and shit and in fact yes he gets thrown the fuck out Jack in the box. Throwing the fuck out Jack in the box for all comes hopping out of things. And he's covered an eight covered completely in ice. It was so stupid. Yeah I mean you said it. Looks like you got gist. I mean head to toe. Ge- is covered in sperm and shit. Oh that's gotta stay We're GONNA call them semen to fro.

It looks like a balloon that is being overly inflated. It's like puffins out and shit and it's got like holes in it. The light coming through. It's like it's all it's like. I guess the best way to describe it is like when a film melts as starts to come apart. It's the same kind of bubbly look right and so they go over there because they see this fucking hand sticking out. Yeah so they run over there and she tries to help her and grabs her. And in the meantime O. Viper that devil doll he get himself some ask right well. He's trying to pull her. You know he's trying to pull back the whole he's competent feels like a fuck field and all of a sudden here comes old Zelda. She's like she's watching this sexual action going on.

But she warns them she just shows up battle fucking nowhere. I don't even know how she knew. What building yeah. But then again I I guess she is because yeah if she could astral project her sorry. He was using the forces from thousands of miles away on a plane. Twenty thousand miles. A I guess she can find them address that she knows how many how many pupils he has all the way she gets in. There gives them the usual change.

Yeah get away and so. They're the psychiatrists is enticing. Ju- fro and asking him. What happened and he finally realize. Finally I'll eventually quit laughing at him. He finally tells them that. They fell into a puddle in the parking garage. And so they all go investigate the puddle and while they're doing Zelda apparently can hear caroline through puddle and God bless the poor thing she has really put it on. Oh my gosh. That's the first movie. Her head is enormous Pumpkin. Pumpkin head it at I was making Kennison reference that she kind of looks like a friend of mine But then I started looking at more of like now that was same. Hif- yeah say hi same kind of general hairstyle saying Holy Crap. Yeah same same annoying manner. Yeah and so. She tells him and the psychiatrist that You know it's real what's going on. It's happening Israel looking you hack for you. Don't know what the hell you're talking about. Yeah you make things worse actually by And so they get the elevator and they head back up to the apartment and while there she gives some grant speech about some. I don't give a fuck. Who Cares? They opened the door but in the reflection is back in her room playing with speaking Spanish speakers. Bill they turn around and and they see her they did they. Also you're sitting there. They can see her but yet they're not doing. The psychiatrist sees her in the mirror and sees that she's not there and yet nothing. They all see her. Yeah in the Mirror Ho that's peculiar as Zelda's trying to coax her back over to the side in the mirror and disliked five minutes of her saying the same shit and it's like the happening so then finally I think I don't psychiatrist or the DAD that tries to reach out for her And Zelda says no and goes to push him in up jumps against the mirror turns into beef jerky well so what happens is when she hits the Mirror the the Carolina. The Mirror is not Carolina. It's Cain as came and reaches out and touches her reflection which turns into beef Jerky Yup and the cracks and she falls on the ground. She's No Skerritt grabs her and those are on the ground like he's trying to save her but it's too late because she's be fucking Turkey and so she's crossed into the other dimension. Yeah she's into the as he hits the ground and splits open in the Donna. Donna COMES OUT SHIMING POINT. Conventional Article Conventional Conventionally. It's pretty cool. Singley like you know. She's coming out in like in in in Donna's does falling apart and looks like Bockova and actually a pretty decent screen. Yeah I mean. This wasn't a well acted scream for for a chain right So somebody was actually showing little terror for once right So then GonNa wash all the Jews off over. Yeah shower down wash off. She didn't have this year Something else but burgers man breath snotty nasty shit pretty fucking growth. And so then they. They're trying to like get her to calm down but like something happens here that we like commented on earlier is the eighties is different times. Whatever but like earlier in the film when Tom Scared leaving for the party and he's talking to his daughter Donna and tells her you know to what to watch care. Land you know Blah Blah Blah. And they're having a little fund daughter Dad moment but then he goes to kiss her goodbye and kiss her lips at thank lower. I think Viper and Donna had little thing and I don't know we're like right. I mean offscreen. You're you're like girls. I'm like it's eighties. People you know drug more accepting of that. Whatever is what it is but then after in the scene after when when he's got him to obey trying to calm her down you know he's telling her she's okay she's okay. He's got his his hands on her head very uncomfortable and then he means lips again or like stop doing that. And he's like all up honor and shit and I'm like Dude you're you're kissing her lips not gonNA comrades down. I said I know this. Just a movie but you know there's some insinuation going on here. Yeah and and so the mom the MOM freaks out can't take whatever and Louis what's up. She's uncharacteristically panicky in. But you know as her character I get it. Ain't Louis the cops know she's not telling she's a flake she's funny. He's weird and she's questioning whether or not she's even you know was even smart to bring. Caroline. There doesn't really believe all this sanctioning China come to grips with a Moronic. Yeah And so then While doing that Tom Scared. He's Carolina. Leave the apartment on the hallway so he tastes after and and Louis Hayes after the taste is after him. Because he's like what the Hell's going on its own psychiatrists like tell he's still there he's telling Donna that she's okay and he says he'll go find her parents and he goes out and then she sees Harlan. Run down the hall. Yeah and he's calling for and he goes over to the elevator to where she You know he opens. What is it down the elevators closing? He sees her in there and the door is apparently are trying to force close on so he's trying to pull it apart and you can see she's in the reflection and she gives us shitty and and smile that she opens door. It's an empty shaft and dial out of nowhere comes and push this motherfucker. Thank God finally pushes his ass in end of the elevator shaft and he bends his bent over this fucking and he's dead he did he. Damilola these When on Alvear comes up then incomes out ju- fro who's riding in the elevator car that the guy just landed on but yet just like the rest of the moving didn't notice any third. Well no reaction no nothing. I'm an she killed. You know. She just killed him. Yeah and then. She's kissing this and then she tax system. Well it's because they're not donna in Jiu phony more. They're the two of those demonic right because as they're sitting there kissing like he pulls her face off and as he does that their hands like discount on their hands arts come off yet and then she just no reaction. Now you know you. Just tell them face motherfucker know nothing like that this okay here. We go so. They're walking down the hallway and they start laughing because they're like. Oh they thought I was her in those little poultry goes poultry ghosts. Poltergeists demon little giggles and dry and with kind of a cool effect like. They're walking down the hallway and You see them and you see the reflection then as they as they keep going they they disappear off camera and then when but you still see their reflection but then when the camera turns more toward the hallway. They're actually not in the hallway. Yes they disappeared but the reflection still there. Yeah so I was kind of cool. Little little trick. I mean you know. It wasn't be scary. Just want to be more like and I love the extension cord that just leave in the middle of the floor said anybody GonNa pick. That Shit is plugged in twenty four fucking seven. I guess so. I think that the extension cord power the whole building. Yeah so then we got seeing were Scared is chasing caroline upstairs and wife is like well. What's funny is the yells up the stairs. Carolyn up there and then we get a single flash of a red light. Yeah out for no reason. He buys it. Oh it's hurt her so they run up there and they end up somehow locking themselves in a fucking a fucking walk in freezer. Yeah it got all these animals hanging upside down. You know frozen a big. It looks like a goose or some shit but you said it looked like a down pleasure soil. Lock Mosser fucker. Well of course they get locked in and then this hose cuts on and the damn thing starts to flood at an incredibly fast rate super weird ass looking green fucking and what the hell sewer. Where's MARVINS INLAND YACHT? Jane Tamara Zinger. You know Google is yeah and Tanja looking like she's taken an enormous shit comes out of the water straining actually and hands scared. You gives viper the necklace. Yep saying outside in outside in the bench that's right handed off that she vanishes retakes and and you're sitting there going. You gotta be fucking Shit me and this is the scene what I got wrong because when when I was talking to you before we started watching it. I thought she came through a mirror. Erin Gabe at some point but she does. Yeah she is in the mirror later but not you know not down now now once you give them the necklace not riots important anyway moving on here. We are sending the Dow last four out of nowhere. They end up in the PUCK and parking garage parking garage and everything is fucking a foot thick and ice and snow everything and all cars for some reason go. Christine. Yep Not even cool though and they they very lazily very strongly very slow and lazy. Try to run them over. One car has a hole in the windshield and a real bright light coming out of it. And it's Fucking Cain. Who The hell are you burn? I'm the parking attendant bitch as for what. Oh Oh yes. So but that okay. So this listen goes on for like ten minutes. Where they're just dodging cars around shit and then Tom skerritt realizes that He has the necklace and that will protect them and then as going around being chased by cars one flips on his side the other car another car hits it Lousy Yeah and when it hits though it hits it in the gas tank and split it open gases going everywhere pink guests. It's pink gas the fuck but Didn't Tom skerritt pulls out his his lighter because he's a smoker by the way it's Viper. Dammit whatever and throws it on the ground and then blows everything up. I'm trying to cool this thing up just a little bit. You can't even even Tom Scary. Can't fucking cool now I mean it. It's so fucking lame retarded so they blow it up and then all of a sudden like there's a flash and then there in the garage. He sets off fucking car explosion in his own building. Yeah who you know. I guess he did it to set you know the sprinklers off. Whatever he did it to both the cars he didn't know I was GONNA sprinklers. Tumbled cars up because what happens is when when it blows up as a flash and all of a sudden. They're doing the parking garage but all the cars are back where they were this. There's no destruction but all the sprinklers are going off. But there's no destruction at all but there's no mirrors how the fuck is happening because movie. That's why so. At that point he realizes Holy Shit outside in. I know what she means. She means that he controls the inside. But we need to get into in from the outside exactly because everywhere. He looked on the outside. They can get to him that there because right he kept looking in through the windows and Shit and so they they go up to the top of the building. They find me Oliver. They see Jerky Man Jerky man. Yup and he's completely routed out like you've been dead for three thousand years. Yeah not not ten fucking minutes. Nope and you know skeleton and once again The Viper just kinda raise them up looks at them says he's in cleaning or do they get in the same elevator and Galway the fucking top of the building and get on one of those little window washing. Yep Yep because I like fuck that ninety eight floors up on a window washing platform. And you're like no. No no no should use a water candidate helicopter. Fuck that I know. What heroin a new you but Yang Yang Bitch and once again I've noted several times for some reason and all the movies been watching lately. There's a personal space issue. Yeah everybody's all up in everybody's grill it's up in his wife Grill which inching like what the things up and his daughters grill constantly degeneres up in his grill. Tom Your Pimp. So they're outside so he gets a shovel That he snatched out conveniently out of of a wheelbarrow on the way up there right and smashes the fucking window and get sucked to fuck in yet and then Carolina comes out who is not really Carolyn O. Course no fucking came talking shit again. I mean you could see coming at this point. Obvious she's telling you don't love me. GimMe the necklace and just fuck off. I'll give you back Donna and Ju- fro- and you know what you have all these back. Just give me the neck. I'll go with Kane. You don't love me case anyway. She finally fucking confesses that I love you and Blah Blah Blah. And all this shit. You know 'cause she'd been doubt in her love right and decision and all this crap like she didn't act like her aunt and I think this is her mom's sister not day anyway. Yeah so she sits. There says I ain't giving you the fucking necklace you know. Kiss my ass. Of course here comes Kane face through the kid again right and runs off and so she jumps in the windows to why not everybody else is in here. Let me get some of this. Damn selves goes in there. Everything's frosties frozen. We are obviously on the other side of the mirrors. Now we are in the other dimension. The other are as the paranormal activities. Called the ghost dimension and so Yes so she's in there by herself. She's trying to find What's going on in? Cain shows up and she takes off for the shovel. He Sal with a shovel which is talking. Shit is fucking hilarious. Knox's head off. The head starts disintegrating coming apart. And all this shit and then here comes came again again so I was like no. We didn't we can't kill. Cain NAT easy and so he tells her that That he wants them all because he wanted the he needs to go the light here caroline go to light but then on the shows up Velva and sells him look Kane. You don't need care. Land Go Light Atkin take you to the Latte and then there is peace and serenity and the lie and he and he goes this motherfucker. Who's been Africare Lampitt? Three fucking films decide. Okay I will go with Zelda for no fucking reason other than I'll give up the youthful high energy child for a wrinkled old danner pound hag. Yeah who's four foot nothing and six? Chins? Here's one of the things. So so they go in and he does give back the the daughters and scared and he doesn't even put up a fight. No see you're thinking coming to a climactic battle no but it basically just shut the fuck down. Yeah you and he just goes. He dropped his arm and he starts walking kind of like Doc Brown did when he dropped his hands and had that hopeless. Look on his face when he blew up the delorean. Trying to use booze. Yeah to start to motherfucker. This still delusional thinking. He's going to Heaven after all these fucking people he's killed. Yeah you know. He's kill all these people and he's he's hot he's he's fucking tormented this family for like three movies and he still thinks his more focus going to heaven. And we we we know damn share that Zelda is like Yeah come on King. Let's go take it to light. And as a leave and once he gives back the family and they go a little bit further and soon closed door e she grabs his essence though assassin hill as rhino. Because that's the health and then you get the fadeaway. Yep Shows the exterior of the building that they're him and then we got big old. Lightning Flash. This is after they're gone. Yeah we get lightning flash. I'm here Cain stupid. Little laugh again then the credits roll. Not it it. It's the one of the most anti-climactic Indians to a movie. Ever try to stretch this a little bit because there were literally patches. This movie that went fifteen twenty minutes without anything. No nothing happening. A reflection was about all you were getting. This is not. It was not scary. I mean it was nowhere near as powerful version. Nowhere near well. Of course you ever Eugene. If it was anything like the first one it wouldn't be on a show in Fuck. No absolutely not okay. Well as far as I'm concerned the acting was middle of the road could have been worse but it wasn't great the script you know the dialogue was okay typically shit The story itself was not explained. Well there was no premise. You had no idea why the fuck she was there. It didn't say anything but there were flashes of it. That were okay The effects there weren't many the the the pool. Jisr was Hilarious guys The the the constant freezing of stuff you know it was the reverse film. The smoke that was coming crawled back up the stairs. Yeah I mean it's obvious these effects but there were really any practical effects. There was no blood knocking head off his lousy. I'm just GONNA go. You know out of respect for Heather. Okay I'M GONNA go middle of the road on this when I'm GonNa give this one three two or three are I'm not gonNA be real mean to it Not was her last project but it really didn't have didn't have no just no just no just no all right well Yeah I agree with you on most of those parts The acting was wasn't too bad there was The psychiatrist would be pretty horrible. Actually a pretty terrible actor. Yes everybody else did okay For the most part. It's pretty believable. The script was scripted was just I mean those terrible just terrible I mean they make any sense people. People are acting like fucking media the whole time. Nobody had the correct reaction anything. No the story. The story was dumb as hell. Because I'm sorry a ghost haunting entire building. Get if I get if I won. His spirit is attached to his bones. That are only the House Yep knowing that he has the bones in the spirit of the other people that were in the cavern with him. Yes kept at that gave him power. Okay now this is years later. And it's a fucking building in a whole different city. Yeah so he should not have this power and then again that Dr fucked remember. She thought she told him you let him here anyway. Stupid Story The effects were cool. That there were I mean the girl Donna coming through Zelda's corks really need The mirror effect. It's pretty cool to the bench. When it grabbed Caroline's hands was pretty Other that they weren't too many other effects they weren't really. I mean I'm trying to think how many actual kills were in this fucking movie. Obviously your thing was just the one that I can remember. The Guy Falling in elevator. Who else died Dell died? How the fuck you didn't really die. She went other dimension. She's dead her body is has other east living dimensional. He's an ex person. She did not have well she she did. Go jerky exit person. Yeah so maybe two two people okay. let me see the boyfriend. The GIUFFRA comebacker. You know he came back So yes just as to to two people in this fucking movie to did YEP anyway so It didn't have any of the suspense or the thrills. The first one nobody died either and the second one. Nobody died they accept grandma. She died of old age. It's too scary though. But yeah he's going to me but nobody died. So yeah this is a step up in the death count but my way. Yeah Yeah Honestly this movie was Pretty Boring I would not watch against. I'm going to go five on this. Damn Yeah I'M GONNA go five recipes recipes. Look it's been like twenty years. Okay we I think we can get you know is definitely not too soon so whatever I mean. It's still a movie five. Wash it once. Get rid of it afterward but at least watch because you got to watch a little trilogy. Yeah you watch the whole trilogy. I mean it's like Indiana Jones. You know I mean crystal. Skulls sucks yeah and and Timbale. Doom is fucking great. You know yeah. That was like a sine wave raiders. Way Up here frigging excellent temple. The doom came down a little bit because back up with with last crusade was awesome. Yeah that was almost raiders owes almost and then came back down a little bit way fucking Down Crystal. Killing was pretty. Cgi was shitty. Show was terrible. Character fucking Russians versus Nazis is no questions wherever by the way we do this straight other shit because what we got presently to talk about the same so but yeah but you gotTa Watch trilogies.

Bonus: This is Sus 2: Council of Dads feat. Lucy Biederman

"The everybody Welcome back as promised another weekly episode but this time a very special episode of this is Saas Very special guests today because we're doing a very special show. This week. I began watching council of DADS. Which is a show. I only caught window because my friend. Michael added me with a clip. That was on twitter. That the show account posted as if they were proud of it It was the most insane fucking thing I've ever seen so you know I still watch. This is us this week. And depending on how long this goes all have the recap that in the back end but I might just save it for next week because council of DADS was so fucking disconcerting an evil that I decided to bring in an expert and decided to bring in my sister Lucy. Hi Felix So what did you just get into the recap episode? But what did you think of this awful thing I made you watch? You told me how bad it was like before I started watching it but it was so it was bad beyond my wildest imagination like I couldn't come up with an idea of something that bad. It's like the ways it was bad. I can't even wrap my head around. It's almost like it does follow the NBC procedure of unthinkable tragedies and hitting your audience but it's worse than anything they've ever made. I can't imagine I don't think I've ever taken in a worst piece of art like it made me feel so and it was like glossy. I was surprised when you said it was really bad. I thought it was going to have like a like a low production value. It had a very high production value but it was like I mean even like little things in the production of it would just like so off like they had those drone shots but the drone was always like too high or too things like that where I was like this. This is just like they hate us like they did that because they hate us through like. Oh the drones to high who cares. Just run. It. It's fine like made for me to watch by someone who hates me. That's exactly it that's exactly it. This is like with us. There are human dimensions to it where I didn't like the writers producers very cynical but they're also assholes through Hollywood households were like. I'm making a good thing. I doing a good job on this Shitty show for idiots. Yes I'm a great writer but no one who made this thought this this just like shoveling slop into like what you think of the actor like. I just like they were like there was like so low effort into it but like it wasn't the league. They were enthusiastic and energetic but like they didn't like their their brains were intended or something. What would it be like to be an actor on that show? It's like humiliating. Yes it's could be the lowest thing that you could achieve as an actor it could. This is what will bring actors back to like Byzantine Times. When actors were thought of as the lowest of like below subtype of professional professional pedophile would be an actor like. I don't think I would take the part like. It's like the parts of their offering the lines that they had to read. It's not worth any amount of money. No there the lines are. I guess explained the premise of the show. So Council of DADS. It's about a guy who has a family non-conventional family that's made up of every demographic that yeah and literally everyone that Hollywood sickos pretend to care about but would have their organs harvested to extend their lives The father the Guy Scott. He's just like a nonspecific class guy. There's stuff alluded to in the pilot of him like giving up his dreams and working art for his family but he could just do anything like he could. He could be it executive for Monsanto the lawyer who knows right. He lives in a big mansion. Too Yeah Yeah it's well. Yeah the the writers producers Y- Sherzer Evil. They're like he's just a regular average. Joe and his house has like fifty bed repair. You don't like it. Looks like a bed and breakfast is yes yes this so he has biracial daughter from his first marriage whose mother has just disappeared. It's I hate that because he they have like a really brief conversation about your mother wasn't ready to raise. A child nodded racist. Way You can tell there was probably written in by the sixty year old screenwriter. At first it was like she went off to go smoke crack. And like you can't do that. Oh she wasn't ready. Okay so somewhere along the lines he met. Charlotte WHO's Obgyn ad because just like the only way characters can have worth if they're complete overachiever? Strivers Yeah Yeah. They had a son named Theo another name. Jj Scott gets cancer like the second character gets cancer. That'd be Z. show the doctors just like. You'RE FUCKING DEAD THE O. K. E. R. Ghana. So in a moment of clarity he goes. You know who should raise my unconventional family. My friends if I died a council of my friends will raise kids and so the show jumps around high like this is up us but this is us jumps forward and backwards and forwards and time. It's very very ambitious. It's like a bad story video game but this is it. Just only move super forward. You'll be watching. Everything moves at a normal sort of a family. Melodrama pace of few few days at a time few weeks and then it will be like a two years later yet. They can't write the sea in there like it was next fall. Yes they have to do that to fit all the tragedies that I wanted yeah and they couldn't think of how to write the scene of like there's something so they just have like next fall. I had Davis morning. All right. So I'M GONNA recap the plot like jump in with anything horrible that I missed okay. Let's get through this piece of shit. So the show starts with J J the youngest son of Scott's family. He's afraid to do a rope. Swing over there. Lakefront property that real life would cost three million dollars wall. Not even a real train song. As it's like a fake train song we get narration. And it's from Luli who's Scott's first daughter from the marriage where the mom is just like. I'm not feeling that this kid has bad vibes. And she explains their family dynamic. She's also waiting on a phone call from the New Yorker. Oh I hate that so much. What we don't even know what the communication with the New Yorker is like. Maybe she just called about squishy. Why this would be like something. She's just one of those people that complaints about David Ram. Nick knaw talking to Michael Bennett. Enough Yeah has been the editor for like way too long and I lose fucked up during this. I had no idea what the age of Louis was supposed to be. Anywhere from fifteen to twenty eight to know. I thought CI was his wife. Thought she was his new wife and they had like a blended family or something. Yeah just lake. I think that was it a better show like they would have explained that like explain later. She's waiting to diverse trade things. She's waiting for injured ship with a fucking New Yorker But the way they explained it like you're just supposed to accept like you're supposed to pick that up completely. Yes yes so Charlotte the obgyn wife coaxes JJ accepting. It's okay to not do the rope swing today but JJ gives this fucking insane anxiety field. It's like a but but if I don't do if I don't do the rope swing now. School starts tomorrow. And they'll never do. And then it'll be nine and they'll get and it's like another case of Hollywood writers thinking literally everyone including an eight-year-old boy thinks the same lake harried. Sa- sort of false quirky tones. That they do yes. Yes yes yes I I. It's not very nice to save a child. I fucking hate. Jj You you go through it. You look at the disgusting. Like he's smug even though he's eight years old I hate you. And then he'd like. Oh he's he's like condescending to his parents he's like I Kindergarten was shit. Show today but then like as. I'm sure you'll get to we find out that we're actually the asshole for hating. Jj Oh God dammit. Yeah I'll get to that part later. What it's we get a very bad scene that was astounding. I can't I couldn't even believe what I was. I was like okay. Yeah we'll get to so Scott like to show that he's the type of dad like the carefree but gives us his lessons adds he goes on the ropes from. Jj and it's a big moment. They you know they swim back at he gets a call at you. Know He's like Hello New Yorker is my daughter. Is My daughter going to work for Leon? Wieseltier for they're like this. Is the cancer doctor. You'll of Kansas City then waist high on this one like this and this is us it just like sorta sort of like soy dialogue for thirty minutes in the first episode. And then they're like all right now. You can have cancer but they. It's not even four minutes in. They're like no this guy's I e completely. Yes yeah absolutely okay. So Scott. Next in he's in the hospital he's waking up from surgery Describe how they see the opening busy whereas waking up in surgery for late for late cancer he walks through the door after his surgery and he looks like Shit like obviously been horrible like horrendous horrific surgery and he said he's like Everybody a home. Yeah yeah that's yeah So the Doctor. The doctor did. The surgery is because everyone knows each other even though America just like zero community or friends. Yes just like every person. If you're a good person you have five hundred friends including like the chief surgeon of the hospital. Yes yes yes show shows you pictures of your cancer leg on his IPAD. Which is what this guy does. And he's like breaking the hippo like he tells the wife all about his diagnosis when he hasn't told the Guy I. It's like you should be disbarred. He's like in the running between the cancer ward of the OB Guy Ward. It's like surp- please no doctor in the NBC. World would last a hospital even during a doctor shortage so they there's the Zoysia in with the doctor so they go whoever owned goes home and we see the assortment of Scott and his family's world. There's the doctor. There's another guy who I forgot about. There's an old like an old surly guy who in the real world he would just be like this. Cunanan guy that ever hated. He's like a kind of like a like cheaper like kind of like low rent. Craig t Nelson. Yeah he's very old very offering like in real life he'd be like did you hear that. Bob Lewis Secrets chance acuity today like Larry. Stop it. But they'd be friends with them because they read like they read a tweet store from. Danny's occur about. Oh you should be friends with people. You disagree with right. And we know that they're real. They're like super liberals because he chance are socked. That was her like literally my eyes water during the show so he ever party. It's supposed to be like. Hey you know everyone just. We're just trying to figure out this thing called life crazy. Things happen like the dog will eat are welcome. Home cake was done right in the first life. It just what? Nbc producer thinks. Normal person's. Life is in your fucking three million dollar mansion. Yeah all their friends are doctors. Yes and they're always stringing lights from the garden or whatever. It's like no human being would ever do this kind of stuff and the like. Scott the the cancer like the way he's looking around about teenage like I'm just relishing my family and they're beautiful. Good time like everything is like this kind of super sappy sentimental song sequence like there's no nothing is in seen like it's all like kind of glossy like like commercials sort of that. They're that they're populating. That's a great way to put a notice a note. I made about three quarters of the way through. I noticed I did the math on one. Five minute chunk. Seventy five percent of the Audio Hata Song playing over it. Oh my God I mean. It's exactly like what you said. It's like you stupid idiots. Here's where you're supposed to think. This is an exciting seem. The guys learning how to drive. Thank you leg. It's so fucking like you would only do that if you hated every person which people do. It's like you fucking moron. It's sad the guy has cancer so we'll play a sad song. Don't you get it? It's supposed to be sad. It's like well maybe it isn't sad it's because the show is like her written like there's no human being in this entire episode. No one has any human reaction to anyone else. Yes so what did you. What did you think about the writing in this? The families interplay between each other. Oh like I think the worst was the wife like shit is I mean. I don't know it's hard to say. Who is the worst? Because none of them are real at all like they're just kind of like cardboard cutouts going around each other but the wife is like really really bad. She's like an Avatar of like a lake. You know forty year old woman like serious forty year old woman professional loves her family? You know we'll do anything strong mom like and the way she's like. I I don't like the way she interacts with the dad. That's when they they come up with the Council of DADS right on the porch or seeing there like beautiful family and all they have and he's like So I'm thinking of doing a conflict ads and she's like you're crazy. And he's he's like I've just convinced you and she's like I think you're dead. He's not she has the least human qualities it's the type of like woman character that a mat like in our BG funk pop liberal Man Rights. When he just doesn't he doesn't actually like like or not like about women Places like he's just because he's been in Hollywood for so long that he can make an NBC show at least like half. The guys who knows probably rapists but yes women eight men a tip for men if you WANNA learn how to do something right at least to a woman. So they're just like these deeper is avatars of competence and not human beings exactly like she doesn't her exactly like it's like like men. Let's all thank women. They can do it all there in charge. It's like why did you get three men to support her like Baker life like? Yeah WHOA WHOA all right. So after the really bad families seen Seen were loosely isn't a cancer support group and hate saying this is really shit. This part's really shitty at his He he's a handsome young african-american character and he's sort of does like the like. I guess you would call it. Like tech talks all flirting where it's like. Hey still thinking about me is school crush. We're just sort of harmless teasing and it does nothing for me to solve the math of how old these girders must be for me at all. You're absolutely right like when was high. School was it last year. Because she's like ear he's like I was free class and it was that ten years ago or was it like last fall no indication because this scene it's written like I it's it may as well be like so many seasons show. It's like a commercial for LEXA pro. That's the level here. Yes and that's what it looks like like visually. It looks like a commercial for lex like the this like the glossy outdoor scenes and stuff like the whole show. Looks like a commercial like a like it looked like the medication commercials that they were advertising in between the breaks. Yeah I noticed that I wanNA talk about that later. The ads I saw for that like because I watch it on Youtube. Tv and I assume the answer the same forever going to watch the show pretty much but we'll talk. Awesome three quarters of the way Ed but So you know that's that's Chekhov's God there there's GonNa be there's GonNa Guess Acute Romance. That becomes very dramatic. Yes yes and like because you're such a stupid idiot. The needs to be with in the same like that needs to be like within the same episode. Like you couldn't like some. It would never be later. You know that would never happen like you're you're stupid brain can't hold something over the week like we'll just shoot the gun by the end of the episode. That's exactly yeah. That's so much happens in. This episode is a product of how much the writers hate the audience. Yes in any good show. Like PLOT ARCS deadwood. Some of them are like we're we have to kill this guy and some of them are like we're trying to build a hardware store and they all take head episodes the characters and writing or strong enough to carry this thing throughout or like a more less proceed show justified. It's like yes. They have episode zero stories of like. There's a different villain of the week but long running things throughout because they think they're strong enough story lives but this is your fucking stupid idiot like fine. We'll give you the romance. We'll give you the death which you right here. Yes yes. Then there's like twenty big reveals like I'm thinking about Jj again like it's like anything that we would possibly need to know about. These people like we get like a huge stupid monologue multiple huge stupid monologues about who they are and why that matters Lake. It's like another reveal the Craig team like the Penny Lakes in a with him. I don't know why that's presentative. Is this huge? Reveal but like through like every scene is like that like the gun. Shoot it off. It's like you thought he was just a neighborhood crank but he actually is in a very old those. Yeah just completely exclusionary fields but Yeah Yeah so Scott and Robin in the backyard and they're talking about Charlotte Their House Robin. They'll be live. Oh okay all right in. Charlotte is the dog. Charlottesville fucked that up. Charlotte was the wife. I'm sorry Scott and Robin WHO'S HIS WIFE. Mistakenly Charlotte charges it in adopting daughter. They have they're talking about how Charlotte is to withdraw the daughter because the first thing we see. I don't know what the fuck this was trying to apply. But when Jesse was on the rope swing she started talking about Anne Frank and how the Nazis I don't know what was it supposed to show that she's smart or that she's obsessed with death or what was so fucked up? I know he literally like maybe the second line of dialogue was like in the Holocaust and frank was like chased by Martinez. Because it's like again deserve awful contemptuous people who make their also really stupid and they think it's just literally just vomiting it out like a child does so yes and like it. That's the book that because of course that book comes up later like in a beautiful scene with one of the Council of DADS and Charlotte. So it's like the people who who were like you know okay. Book Book will have a read a book. What to book Catcher in the Rye no no to to body on the Van Frank? It's like it's like when you Google book the Dire. So so yeah. They have a they have a bench. Just wrong laugh. Were Scots like yeah. She's in her closet all day. Like in frank and then Scotch like Oh yes. Oh yeah that's that's okay. Yeah Yeah Okay. Yeah. Yeah Scott shows off his new leg daily took off his leg for cancer reasons. Now one yeah. There's just no reason for that to happen by the way I think it was like. Look you look at all. This awful should have this guy and he's still he's still has a good attitude fucking pieces of shit exactly right like except your lot. This guy doesn't even have a leg. Yeah Alright so. We're immediately a mansion in one leg workers have more money than you could ever dream of. No one of the. Oh wait the wife works. It doesn't seem to work. Yeah Yeah Okay. So after this were given a treat you know we had our VEGGIES STANFORD DESERT. We have a character. We'd never see it a family melodrama accommodate. We have the cool best Fred's slash uncle character. Who's like a handsome had some swath man with a beard? But he's like a little wacky like you yet so the kids he's like. Let's go to the crab shack all K- kind of guy. This guy got a wild side. But he's nice to kids look out for him though ladies. Yes yes we're now. Give an awful scene at the entire family and their friend go to the crab shack and it's called Crab Shack. We have to learn that like several times like in the scene before I should have these like. You're preparing dinner and the DAD's like I like one two three and then everybody else crab shack to a building that says in huge letters crab shack on it and then we see them sitting there and they're like we're at the crab shack. Yeah like this. This is sponsored bit or something like what is it. It's like you know like we we all like. We'RE TALKING ABOUT AMERICAN SNIPER ONCE. And how could have been a cool movie if it was like? Oh yeah this is. The Guy who's really navy seal that he lied all the time and he was a bad person like yes like if it was like yeah like if it was a comedy. Yes if this you made this show but it was like. Yeah there's a curse on my family where we all behave like the mythbusters brilliant. You're right do we have to stop behaving like the mythbusters before I die. Yeah exactly like these people search shit like they're really like it's like the way that they get along so well is repulsive like you know the the like it's like when he does RPG chant rich like you know we'll talk about obviously like the the Charlotte just smiles like cut like warmly like this is like a thirteen year old girl and then his son is like all the like everyone in the family is compliant in obedient. Even when they're trappings. Are this rude son. He's a rebel or like this is like a Charlotte girl on the edge of puberty. Like it doesn't she's. She's struggling with Holocaust. Related issues doesn't like none of those things like bear out in the way they like. React to any anything anyone does like. They're all like they're only personality. Trait it when in their interactions is how compliant they are. That's a great point. That's a great like even families where it's out leg. They're being ravaged by cancer. Like kids are Shitty. And don't listen Energy just like feel bad for seemingly no reason yes. People people have insane like siblings will have like insane hatred of each other when their kids that grow out of almost like it's like there's a lot of French this is this show is all. These shows are tragedy without friction. It's so weird S Oh my God. Yes it's like. They're just lying down and take it like yes it's like they. I mean when the like the sun is like the sun is like crying. Maturely at the at the DAD's funeral it's like these aren't human like and so we're all the other like you know it's like it doesn't there right. I mean the lack of friction. That's such a good way of putting it like these are people who like apparently are on the same family together and they're not relating to each other at all in any way like they're not relating to each other in a way that anyone wouldn't just like standardly relate to anyone like yeah that's a great way to put it. Yeah they have no special understanding of each like. That's why family dynamics are right for drama. Because it's the only way in which incredibly different people will can relate to each other past even what like a friend or like my partner can't and there's they're like clones like each other. Oh my God exactly like me and Tammy we're talking about that. I was you and Sam like you Felix and Sam have more like you have like a cuomo brothers dynamic and like me and you have more like a like a word like more similar like we don't have like I don't know it's just like each of us like relates very differently to each other you know and and I are like similar because we like you know like we're like similar and different to each other in such like wide interesting variety of different ways like wouldn't there be like I mean the first thing that the what is what's a the first thing that Lulea says to us like in her weird narration. That never comes back until the very end. She's like Charlotte adopted. Like this is their giambi. Why is she telling us that? Like you know like so Charlotte's adopted and she's from another mother. Would they have some kind of like would? Wouldn't that influence their relationship in some way? I don't know how but like I don't I never even see them. Interact in any way. No no never. Never because they're ju- it's like it's almost like they work in different divisions of the company that is the family. It is so much like a company like. That's exactly what it's like. You're right Oh God okay. Yes so the crab shack we find out. That Lulu turned down a fancy internship in New York to take care of of Scott and she actually works at the crab shack and she works she. That's how we know she's a good. She took a low normal person Shaab. Instead of writing articles that are Would Bernie Sanders is opposed World War? Two and we also learned. We learned like the swag best friend is a restaurant tour. That's what we wait a minute. Danton New Yorker. Like why is she like we? Did she get a call from the New York or not? Like how do we know? It's never like it's never explain. I almost think that like the time. Moving forward thing is a function of them like they did like a bad job. Descriptors there's pages. This sound should have been like Ted episodes. Yes I mean there is so much and you're like I didn't even cross my mind like and that was like the same season or whatever you know she's just going to move to New York without having heard from the. Oh I'm sure I was accepted. Scott Scott says her like you need to chase your dreams go to New York to become a writer and I that just that was very revealing. Because it's like that's what the children are the producers of the show are doing is yes they're like oh it's like a noble profession for the public right right. Thank you so much for like right writing blog posts for a refinery twenty nine. That's beautiful I this literally just made me realize I think that the push for us to respect journalists like we were supposed to respect troops to does warn interesting because it's because it's like the only job that the children of Hollywood's cues. They're they don't work hard enough to become doctors or anything in this is the only thing they can do. So Hollywood sick like actually. My children are heroes. That is so true like you don't understand. They're going to work like four days a week. It's really go outside and talk to people like it's amazing what they're doing. Yeah yeah so the daughter like in one of the most into saint snap turnarounds like the no dad. I WANNA watch you die but she gets five steps out. Turns around one hundred eighty degrees goes do you feel like sidetrack your life? Oh my God. The Dad Goes No. I'm so glad I had you that. Your mother left that I have my unconventional life. Yes I mean. It's you're right that that conversation is really weird. Like she's like for some reason even though like she's like presenting herself to us as an outsider in the family and then she presents herself to her dad and but yet when we interpret her as an outsider in the family. That means that. We're racist like I don't know there's some really grows on their like she is like she's the narrator that she and she's like you know. How did I get to be a part of this family? I'll tell you it's like well. Why are you assuming I wouldn't think you're part of this? I think that's the key to this being written by a very old people because like if you saw like you know if they had done better job with the wardrobe we would have picked up immediately that this was the daughter. And that Scott's her debbie like Oh yeah like. The mom was biographies adopted or something. But it's like because like a sixty two year old. Little White Guy writes this. Who thinks he's just at the forefront of progressive politics because he reads the route he's like heart. You're probably thinking this is just a homeless woman. Whose family right you know. What in retrospect like by I thought when she was sitting on the steps like smugly watch Huma Family. I actually before. I thought that he was her new like she was his new wife. I actually thought that she was. The baby. Is THE RAISES LEAGUE. Fifty away from the family. And she's like not old enough to be their Mama really his wife but not young enough to be part of the. Yeah yeah no that was definitely what I I fought like and it's not my fault. Why did you think visually presented her? As yet literally. Yeah you are no fucking idea. It's like this. Is this show. You have to read Wikipedia to figure out completely but all right so also. It's Christmas We know this because the Q. Non Family the Christmas tree and again like if you wanted to make this show about like actual human friction and how people have very different figs cub together. Like I'm sure there was a reason that he barges in with Christmas. There should've been something that's like you know. Oh like trump made it okay to be Christmas again. Like I don't give a shit if your family's UNITARIAN were celebrating it but like I because this isn't completely defanged friction list. It just like this completely silent. Old Man gives them a Christmas tree. And that's the end. Say words like who is that guy even so like shoddily. Because you've ever like wait. Who is that? We look at Christmas and runs out like you think. He's sort of like a boo Radley. Figure something but then later you find out. He's like integral in the family. Like like in the family like fabric. I like you. You wouldn't have known that in the first because they're like there's that weird old man again. We love you in the part. That moves around. Like by years was like wizards scene where he liked held them fix it gun or something so the next part the did I. This is why I think there was a thing that someone wrote. That was like you know sober and Chris again because the next seed is this terrible thing. Where Scott's giving Charlotte source speech about God vaping and he goes Ruth Bader. Ginsburg wouldn't fate and he leaves the room chanting. Rpg at it's like first of all they should allow you to apply for Alabam membership your Roco. That's what I wanted during this. I know and that was like the compliance like docility of the children was so evident that team because he's like walking around the fucking food and thirteen year. Old daughter just like smile. She doesn't even smile indulgently like she just smiles. That's not a human response to like this. Do Father be like Oh. Bg That's not like no one would do that like yeah. I'm like I can't even imagine the view any person who is a fan of the show being like cool like that was just repulsive his behavior right if no apologies I think maybe the NBC people like our BG's because she's been dying for like fifteen years. Oh my God you're right and she's like I broke my rib all right so That's probably when the cancer came back. All right so at Dinner. Scott continues to be incredibly fucking irritating. Gives his kids like quick. Quick Shitty Terry Second Life Lessons Charlotte Berry subtle subtle writing. This is what a mom would do a dad. If you help scares he goes Scott. You're going be here for a very long time. Your daughters are going to need you. You're not dying and he was like. Oh Not Charlotte Robin Roberts and and Scott is lake. And she's like I. I'm pregnant with a girl okay. It's this is the scene that Michael Michael set me. Wait is this when they're standing in front of the mirror so we get the most insane fucking seen ever written here. This is the thing that got me to watch this. Show this scene in front of the Mirror. Oh and it's like again like visual. It's like inch visually insulting. Like how many times have I seen like Shitty of the husbands holding the wife in front of the mirror and they're talking to each other in the mirror like no human in real life has ever done that? Said you were throwing up. Are you sick? Remember all that life-affirming sex. We have been. You're I tag most affirmed life. I'm pregnant which is so crazy after. You got diagnosed. I think I probably forgot a few calls. Sorry I'm sorry that I didn't catch a cancer doctor. You might have been limping. And I just missed it. I hit that some stupid blood tests that you took for insurance caught it to sorry me. Getting cancer is in. Your phone is in your fault at all. You being pregnant is in good learners. It's the best. Yeah no I mean. You're now married with the kid right. No all right. I'm just GonNa Save the euro for the scene at just because there's no way either of US could describe this. That doesn't justice just a little more seed ever reported. It's she's like I'm a doctor. First of all he knows that he's your fucking husband and she's like cancer like with what like our home. Caveat Scams fucking sue holy hit it so bad so horrible shitty owner. God I the part that life-affirming sex it was like. Oh He's wearing his in his house and he's wearing a skullcap totally just like have his bald hair in that. Like bald headed in the house about this is so fucking unnerving. It's like a catoon thing where you lose. Billions have play the game anymore. Holy Shit I fucking hate it but okay vaguely like after. This is the most insane thing that's ever been on TV but after that. They're in their backyard. Why does he need a council of dads but like I mean should the baby? The the existence of the baby means that there needs to be cancelled as to. What about the other kids? Yeah oh no that they. I owe the conflict notion precedes. The baby doesn't yet. No no no. It's after the bay. It's like after after like they have the Shitty dinner seen an RB juicy. He's like that. Yes off. Gentlemen I use that term loosely are going to raise my kids but I I look but it was like a weird it was like a niece has thing. It was like a trigger point. It's like you're on your own with with my family after I die but now that you have a new kid get fucking abortion so many kids die like God forbid Dr. You'd like this is a fucking disaster. Yes yes and right until then wait to what happened because abortion even for the fuck it lives in Charlotte. God forbid any abortion. It's just a thing or no like good woman would do that. Yes like instead you need to like like Jerry. Rigged is like system of three men to look after this girl like this is a mess like lately right like. I don't like her life like you know. She's the strong one like her life is inconceivable. Okay they have tons of kids. I can't I don't even know how names I I don't know how they were. Like what the fuck is going on? They live in a gigantic mansion. They seem to have no like help with the house they she is a full-time. Blake obstetrician like this. Yes she is. Yeah she's she's a is that right like she. Yes she delivers babies. Yes okay. So she's a fulltime obstetrician. It doesn't seem like any for family. Lives in the area or anything. Like this is a nightmare. Yeah Yeah it's a there. This is like this is a family from like a New York. Times tread base of people who like the moment the economy turns out there like yeah works for seven hundred fifty thousand dollars in debt. Yes yes yes completely when so robin like similar to Mary? Queen of Scots. Like you serve some shit. She becomes the head of the Council of DADS but later next Louis in the guy from cancer club or hanging out and also. There's a sign in the room that literally says Cancer Club. They don't want the choices they make are so weird. Because it's like this is one of the actual for like. Oh this is a cancer. Because that's in the dialogue but they'd be over the head with that but with everything else wiser just like multiple seeds with this early completely silent old man that is explained for like forty minutes until it is what they think you deserve to know and don't is so. Yeah it's like okay. For some reason they need to label this room like like a kind of strange haunting figure bursts into their Christmas tree and runs out Lakers. Yeah they're having another terrible scene in their beachfront paradise those appalling in love with you and she goes just stop talking to I. That's the TV show confusing because her response is she doesn't just say like no. No thanks she like. I had no idea how to read her reaction because she was like. I I okay. I knew a is was so. Am I supposed to think that she's saying she loves him? Also or is she breaking up with him and then she was like she had disgusting. Line that it's like there were so many lines of that like the Stock Photo version of lions. Like she was like. Can we just be quiet together for a while like something? No one has ever say. Let's just not talk. And so then they just like I guess like snuggle up against each other and like apparently she's just like horribly rejected him but he's like really me. It's like if if it's that in Gustav you might as well not just have it. Yes like there's no point. Yeah so our next are. We're finally. Oh of another thing. She's in the she's again in the baby sitters position like the whole family is having this party. And she's like in the back yes she's never like it. She never is any interaction with family and again. This was a better shitty show. It would have been like there would be like. There's some racial character to this where it's like. I like sometimes like I don't feel like part of the family. The that's the thing you export. They would export horribly because they can't do anything right but it would be something but it said they just like they forget to write her allies. They're like no you're in the scene. It's like mill aroused Dory grabiner. Don't approach you love it or a huge part of you love so much that you. It's your job to narrate the you never you're just like Out there so our next awful said It's Larry the old man and yeah and the COO the rebel. Yeah he's like he's the one who's pissed right even though is completely compliant. Yes nice and fine. It's just like he gets mad sometimes but like again if this was a better show like Larry would not really be teaching him how to drive like not giving him good advice. But he'd be like Ed. You know Chrissy teigen posted. Yeah twitter about. Our flake are redirected. You know that is she's a federal marshalls got her for Pedophilia and JFK. Junior faked his own death with Donald Trump in nineteen ninety nine donald trump's and working against these forever at the pedophile is around the world. But there are times over at would be like Whoa. You might be like stealing like drugs from the guy's pocket or something else. Yeah he would be. Ti He'd be like Chinese invented global warming and he ripping just fucking dripping propane all out at some high. They like. He's doing a bad job at various Larry's an asshole. And Larry. This is when we find out like after they have an argument with us like stop. It Larry is two things. He's a nonspecific businessman. You're right now you know. It's good to like him because he's successful right. He's contributing to society. He's not right. Yeah not just like an old leach. Christmas wasn't the only but he contributes also take a business. Yeah just he's like I'm a businessman. I know it works. What doesn't you're you're sad because your dad has answered it's like wow. I'm just really. Yeah you guys really lucked out with the family friends. Nothing eludes them. That's great and he's also like I'm in alcoholics anonymous with Scott and and the boys like what that wonderful I had no idea. It's like looking fifteen year old. Be Like Oh my God. You're in recovery by got it was so fucking right and it's like why have the family like just compliantly accepted this weird man whose name they barely know for unto you. Why why couldn't the the guy say? Your Dad is my sponsor your like the daily would they dad never drake's yet has like some like what would be more alarming. Your Dad being like yeah. I used to have a problem with alcohol and I don't drink anymore and I'm part of this thing my friend forward or just be like. Oh yeah no this this fucking this completely more bundled man is GonNa come by every day and not talk to you this Christmas trees. I know like why was it? Why would that have been a reveal? Like I really don't understand. Especially if they're going to do this funky patchwork family. Thick layer it so insane to me it just like maybe it should have been at the show. They wanted to have the scene. We're Larry so Larry is like run laps around the parking lot. 'cause you're mad and Theo screams and it's like okay good. He's done with his grief. Yes that's right. He's fine. The only time the subtext here the only time you should ever feel rage when someone gives you permission. Yeah Oh my God like the right. You're right the boy is like like he's so compliant in actually in seems like pathological or something and he's the rebel and so in that scene the the guys like teaching him how to drive. Which again lake wouldn't you be like? Why who is this man? And why is he teaching me how to drive like who you know and the show? He like the thing that the boy does. That's really bad. Is He? Hits on the brakes. Yeah that's right. Yeah that's like. That's the completely unacceptable thing right. No you're supposed to go slowly around the parking lot and he like slams on the brakes. It's like what a coup who'll do like really got a rebel on our hands. Yeah that part. That part's awful and also like Larry should be. There should be like a beep. Lot where Larry's training. Theo the cool son to murder. David Hogg by your. That's what the real guy doing. You're absolutely right. It's like Sun. We got the ammunition in the back of this truck. Like we'll tell your family were teaching you how to. I know why you're I know angry. Son Joe by state or trying to take away our rights we got all these crisis actors just about your age. Dc sniper situation where like beguiling. I wish that everything our these two like. How did they meet each other like? Yeah you would be exactly like that like Oh that would've been so what a missed opportunity but like because the people who are at the show just everyone's life has expendable to them. Yeah that would have been like a wet like if if in this episode they would offended in this episode somehow did they did a DC sniper struggled spree killings. Scott would be like. What did you do with my car? You did what your beyond grounded and killed like twelve people. Yeah that's got. That's exactly how they talk. Yeah I think it would be easier for you to count the number the number of days until college till you're not grounded just fucking insane manifesto out there that they wrote completely. Yes okay. So we're like safely done with the bad truck seen But were we're back? We're back in the hospital where this show really comes alive. And so they gave Scott add an which causes him to act. Even more annoying is telling everyone he loves them. And he's like I don't know you but I love you to God. I fucking hated this part. So so robin is there with Oliver. Who's cancer doctor and Robbins is specified for Middle School? And there's like a really fucking weird lied where Robin she refers to. When Oliver was straight in medical school tried to kiss her the conflicts. I completely agree like that was incredible. And you know another thing like Oliver Talks about his husband and his family a few times and we never see them for some reason like I know that supposed to make us feel like really hard like you know. Oh you know like he's gay and he has. We think it's wonderful that he's gay and he has this family tomb but he's somehow invited and compliantly enthusiastic to join this other family instead the council. It's like what about your own family? Like Yeah Yeah. It's it's literally like alright. Well you're the gave Halley and that's like yes. Didn't they do that right? It's like and that's they lead us to think that and then punish us. We're not as liberal as these are. Bg Lovers. It's like no what you're presenting us with is in humanizing to these characters. Yeah no everyone is. Just there are no human characters this everyone is just like a vector for tragedy and positively. I in the message that you should never feel rage or anger. It's all dirty more. There's just like a vector for you to feel good about yourself for accepting this character that has no human qualities or frictions. Right exactly yes. Yes so The Wall they're having cerebral coversation. Robin immediately starts giving birth. That was insane like you know. I'm very sensitive to this because I gave birth seven weeks ago and like this isn't exclusive to this show but the thing of like what would it be like my water broke? I'm giving birth. It's like that's not how it happens at all like your water breaks like somewhere log malign like not like really really breaks where like minded like seventeen hours. Later you give birth like. It's not like that at all. I never knew that but that shouldn't surprise me that the they've just got this. Well I guess like no screen writer has ever been there when his wife gave birth with Bryan Singer. Come to see another yes completely. Yeah no I know. It's like the way I mean you know I'm really like like the way the whole pregnancy was depicted. And like there's I don't think I've never seen like a film or even like literary depiction of like what it's actually like. But this stuff of like where you just like slyly. Dropped your husband that you're pregnant or like what sex. The baby is like those. Are Things that like. You would have a conversation with the person who you're going to be raising this child about like what I don't like I guess that's like the strong woman thing. She's got it but like this man isn't he's also supposed to raise the child with you. Why are you like? We're having a baby girl it's like. How long has he been pregnant for? Its yeah so the we were not treated immediately birthday. We've gotta wait for that because we're We're back with Louis and all the grief guy and she's like I can't be in love with you. I'm just doing temporary thing while my dad has cancer. They use it disgusting phrase that I'd never heard before I don't know if it's made just for the show or if that's something people say on Tick Tock do you remember. No what is it. It's like so I guess I'm just your brief buddy. Oh fuck that really sucks. They're really fucking saw. It comes up again later. He says it again or she. I think she says it again. Yeah Okay Yeah I think yeah. Okay so I can. Yeah they just give us at like little sprinkling of Shit but we're back in the hospital right. It's very short right. Yeah just a very short shitty so they end the baby girl Scott probably going to name her like our BG persist for Orange Mad slayer chuckle. Focused wonder woman Scotland he leaves for some reason. Oh my God i. We're going to go away the baby the baby I mean. Obviously they're not going to do like any kind of realistic birth scene. But like why was he the baby to be weighed? Like the outside. Who has been sterilized? Yes that's terrible. The navy like has new immune system so that leaves Scott or that leaves Oliver. Add a robin alone. And Oliver's yacht don't get attached. You'RE GONNA die. She was after he said. But she's like Oliver. I know you really well even though you're gay and like I you know I can tell when something's wrong and he's like yeah husband. It's curtains like again. Seamanship violation massive. This show would be fired. Yes like all like Larry would be fired from. His job is like what like private equity guys because he literally? He can't say a word that anyone apparently until like a boy Yeltsin yes. That's like his trigger. That's I guess I could come alive. Scott is just like the most annoying fucking man ever any job. He could work at now. The restaurant tour brother League. His thing is just like get Busey. So I guess you could imply that like we just apply in fact. No-one who's not in this family is in the show. The only people we see our people in the family. Like if you include the Council of Dads like the hospital is completely staffed by the family the crab stat at least outside the family like there's nobody who appears at all in the show like these people have no friends they don't know anyone like it's only the family no. Yeah that's yeah. I never thought about that. They're literally the population of this entire. It's amazing yes yes it's like a dream when you have a dream like I'm at Costco. But everyone who works there is like you know it's like my cousin Polle. Yes Oh my only faces that you can quite recall that moment. Oh my God yes yes yes that's right it's like I mean it must be the same reason like you do it in the dream that they did in the show like your imagination can't come up with anything except for the million people and that's what they're doing they can't staff the show with enough people like there's also well then is it for lack of money like the show is very high productive. I could have hired extras but there were no. This is the family company. We would confuse the viewer. Very facial recognition. I actually recognized the dad when he had cancer like. I thought he was a new character. They're perfect view that he's bald so after that Louis and the guy looks like alright. While you're more than a grief buddy. Oh is that what you said? Yeah Yeah I expected both were to be like. I'm dying at this point me. Get both of them cancer. She runs into the fucking see. It see this is like a tear terrence. Malick like dropped as an adult. A really bad about it's yeah. It's like a fucking fancy schools that are film classes. If you were like yeah just have a fifteen year old deal of fucking Malik scene with full production like God. Exactly what wait that like? I've been part of one of those like I was taking a walk one day like in beach which is really fancy. Suburb of Cleveland and these two wonderful teams stopped me and they were like and it was like a really snowy day and it was like down this path that you'd see in like something like this could you do. They really fancy cameras and they're like could you walk slowly away from us and I was like it was like a heart war. Good luck with your future guys like. I'm sure everything will be great. And they're like thanks. Ma'am like like that. They could have shot like if they were in Georgia. Or wherever this takes place like they would have shot that. Like the woman running toward the water in wonderfully freely jumping in chasing after like. Yeah they probably would have done a better job but in the water. She's like my dad. Died this board. It just ends. It's fucking off all right. So he doesn't say like these people have no friends like my dad died this morning at the. La Too long just used to the SAL resist until they're talking about turned may respond by being like my dad is still alive. Like couldn't right. They couldn't think of anything to write for the just adds no. Yeah they're like all right. We'RE OUT OF CNN. So we're thankfully like ridiculously in the last quarter this so it just ramps up to get worse as it is right and as we get like as. I told you that. Cnn is like an like it's like a relief like the the way that they've set this up because you know there's going to be a council of DADS. You like rooting for his cancer to come back then. I looking so evil like but it's like well you need this plot. This council of DADS needs to be up like a like you know. It's horrible like liquid. Every character they put you in like a disgusting position. No yeah well yeah. It is the NBC Theory. That all tragedy. I mean like okay. You take like the MIS attributed Stalin quote a million statistic the as quote would be any any tragedies just a plot device tragedies just something that happens that you put your character is like just annoying supposedly. Funny Lines come out. Yes it's like I can't think of anything else to do. So this guy died of cancer like I can't think of anyway to make these people seem human except for through through illness and sickness. Yeah it's the only way they can characterize me. Yes so he writes these. He writes like these. Alva letters thanking the Council of DADS the Future Council dads and I thought it'd be funny of his letter to Oliver was like well good work but I'm dying. You're the league use will become. You're the only one task keeping me from dying from cancer. You screwed it up all over your got your right. Like Oh God. And it's like they can't think they couldn't think of another character to be as doctor. The doctor had to be his best friend and look at this. This family wouldn't pass like an annulments clause investigation. It's way too many conflicts. You're probably you're right so Right tweet each data letter. Yeah so there's a look after the family for at least a year. Which like what like after a year like a baby. You've no issues the baby it's all right. They can pretty much take care of themselves after that but yeah so retreated to. The baby is growing very fast. Another thing I noticed it like three somehow was low about the size of a one year. Old Baby Yeah. I mean who knows maybe they like microwaved it or something but we were treated the individuals of the council beating with individual member of family. Like we get Oliver. He talks about Anne Frank with Charlotte. It is horrible name. Larry keeps continued to groom Theo. He's like to like just garbage shit like that. So all right coming up this whole I like that Larry. Field think is incredibly sinister like they. They're they're seeing is a recruit visual recreation of the worst. Seen the Michael shared with you of the wife and husband since standing in front of the mirror like he's doing that with who thinks he has armed Arou- type tied. They're both facing the mirror. Oh fucking garden because all these shows so fucking Dr Singer probably produced it. Holy Shit relationship develops the teaser for next on. Never asked you to become a part of my life. Do Jews liked you all right so like yeah so after that there are a lot of their like four scenes I could say contend for the worst seen in this is the last of those is so during the funeral scene. We find out. Jj is a trans boy and this isn't done with like zero fucking care for Trans People. It's not that they think this is interesting character. It's not like Oh we're GONNA like we're GonNa talk about like how family would would take on like the challenge enjoy of this. It's just like The grandma makes makes them wear a dress and then every character gives a speech about why she shouldn't have and it's just like it just a waiver. The writers show this now like every identity is just a fucking prop. Yeah so fucking insulting so God. They're fucking insulted. He's so fucking insulting and then when we find out what their their special identity is quote unquote. That's all they are and will ever be like. That's the end of their trajectory as a character. It's like so gross. And I see him as a specially offensive to me because that was the mom from freaks. Geeks use what a fucking misuse of an amazing like you like. She didn't have to do that. Like oh right and then right and JJ gives a like a like a really gross speech. He's like it's okay grandma. I know you're from a different generation and you just don't understand like I mean their reactions. It's like they have to be good for us to to want to follow their plotline or something like that. Right exactly exactly. No one on this show has your grandmother. Miss `gendering you and making you do like one of your own fucking father's funeral in front of your entire fucking family but because the writers have to show that you're morally ever display any rage because this is the dirtiest thing you can just. Yes any anger folk and discomfort. You have to be Jesus Christ all. That's what every normal person do. The normal person has to be to have any rights. Yeah forbid they angrily demand the human dignity to which they're entitled to. Yes absolutely yet right. It's like right the I'm like generic Craig t Nelson didn't give the give. Jj permission describe in the parking lot so instead he's just going to be politely compliant and go along with it and he looks terrible. I know what was happening. I thought it was like she was dressing him. For like some kind of communion lingers it was poorly again horribly done horribly introduced horribly fucking everything. Yeah but this was just like the other seeds are horrible because they're poorly written and poorly executed. This is horrible because it's like insulting yes so like a lot of people and JJ is a very unpleasant character and like nothing to do with his identity because the writers bad yes like. He's always like you know in weird places in the house like kids like like in a funky position on the land or whatever you know like just yucky stuff and then and right and then it's like oh you hated him. Well he's really wonderful kid. Who's you know dealing like in a extremely like perfect way with being tran? Like so you suck. It's like am so Louis in the awful end this awful awful pilot Louis gets master married to her cancer home with the help of Soya luminosity They do their wedding. I guess we flash forward five years. Oh three months later and just like you. I was thinking she was like fifteen. Because the DAD said you know. I'm worried about this relationship. Oh my God wait. We didn't talk about the song that they sing together when they first met like holy. Fuck I literally. I think I like I blacked out that boy. Please please look under the okay and this is like this is so racist. I don't even know what I mean. But it's like raising like you with a half to like I don't even know I mean it's like okay. They're standing against a brick wall and he spontaneously begins and he's done a graffiti of a crab I think corporate graffiti that he voluntarily did for free on the and then I don't I can't even it's like my mind couldn't even make sense of what I was seeing like. I think this is supposed to be a realistic show. You know. They're trying to make it realistic. He but just spontaneously begins to kind of do a kid rock style rap lake then. She joins in and finishes out the rap. And I think that's when the dad becomes a like concerned about her future because they're doing street stuff like like it's like this we're like I mean they're they're song is like something that would be on sesame street like that's like the kind of tone of it like there in front of this fake brick kind of suburban. St Style Brick Wall. And they're doing like A. I don't know what the RAP is. I was too mortified till this into the words of it but I think it was something like hey girl I mean to you girl you in to be like something a little bit like that. And she's like hey brother happy to see that you are into be like it was that. Yes yes it was that fucking shitty. It was. Yeah it was like nine thousand nine hundred eighty three yes. Yeah and they were both doing blue slake right and I don't know that this show that the I don't know that they're not maybe not from the community or something but the everyone like accepts anyway and that was right before the conversation that she had with the dad where she was like. Did I ruin your life? Dad like you would have ruined his life. Who saw what just happened. I Yeah I can't believe I forgot about that. Actually I know. You can't keeping your. Hey Boa okay. So wait the whole. The reason I brought up team was she said to the dad after that. You know I kissed a guy and you flip like so. It's like to me that you know it's not like she's sleeping with him she just doing like urban smile talk with them and that was what was in the script like when they're blocking you know they were like Louis in the guide urban styles. Mating Ritual Romanticism. It's exotic all white writer's room completely. You're right it was like urban style. Bathing ritual completely. Yes Oh God that was so if I went in the end the dad walked in on them. Doing it right. Oh God oh my God. I am really glad you remember that because that like ads so much subtext like I ruined your life like you introduce urban family. Is that what we're supposed to read it like we have you stand five hundred feet back from the family at all? Social Christ so when she was like I kissed I watched the big deal that made me think this girl is fifteen years old but yeah but she gets married. I think about three months after. That seem so. She's a twenty one. Yes yes fuck God damn it's assaults. Yeah that's a great idea for marriage. You just known this guy for like five months you get buried just out of grief right fucking great. I like there's a lot of contempt for normal people and the people who via the show but that is probably the biggest. That's like very subtly the biggest. Fuck Yo because it's like if you the message of this show and the message of Li all these shows and all this kind of culture this coal to positively. Yes is that it's absolutely filthy and discussing the feel any anger at the site of the world. Any ambient shitty this feel. It's odd that you live in a country where people fucking kill themselves because they they can't afford health care that you murder suicides has his wife. They're afraid they'll be burdens on their family that we did that. We fund terrorists militias all over the world in destablize. Anything good that happens just this. There's this constant baseline of unfairness in evil and that. It seems like nothing really seems to get better on a macro scale lake. If you feel bad that you haven't done enough self care that you're not you're not grateful enough of your friends and family and yes that's right. You're not smiling like sitting slightly back at family functions just like taking it all in smiley like a Boron Lake Right. You need to spend more time doing that. Like doing Hashtag gratitude at your family functions. Yeah and it's literally like Scott. It's like no no. Don't worry if you can't afford it literally. The mother leaves no explained. Reason like just have a kid. Let's continue this empire. Keep growing the tax base. Even though you can't afford to you'll figure it out so you love your family right you fucking piece of shit. Yes that's right. We have to cobble together. These like the only people we know to help raise this child and you know what happens after a year like. What's this woman supposed to do like this is horrible? It's one of the most catastrophic things that could happen to somebody if this real but because it's one of these shows it's like not great now you have more opportunity for gratitude like God. Look you suck you like the people who fucking right. This show. Don't raise their army with a staff of twelve. Like yeah you yeah I mean who is cleaning that match like like? I struggle very very much to clean. Our apartment has like two rooms in it. Like I don't like you know who's doing that. Yeah this is this was. I was happy to go back to this US after this. I'm going to START GONNA be going back to wreak. Having this is US next week we ended up doing a lot of time on this. Just because it's so fucking repellent. It's the worst one of these I've ever seen. I would doubt they would really have to like really grind to make some shittier than this. This really really was bad. Yeah and the wedding scene was repulsive like that looked like a some kind of medication commercial to it was like a kind of anthropology like setting thing really really grows. Oh my God yeah. It was like a pinterest. Yes only leading the whole aesthetic of this very pinterest. The whole thing. Yeah so yeah. The wedding ends. They get married. Luli gives like Eurasian about how her family so great but yeah this USO. Oh yeah the thing I was GonNa say the commercials you notice to like how every ad was either for a medication. Only medications that are covered by Medicare plans like the only people in America who can afford medication. Old people who have like the only socialized medicine in America and the army. You're that you America makes empire and fucking pills truth things while this fucking Shitty slop made by free like sex maniacs and freaks plowed into our heads. Oh God you're right and like I mean those commercials do the same kind of like identity like you know this. These are these people we look. They're diverse. Thus you know you're a good person for like what accepting this on your TV or something. Yeah Yeah it's fucking. What an awful exercise. Oh God God like I felt really depressed after it was over like. It's just like it's like serving up this like like grievous narrative and offering new only like this like pinterest boards in like understand it with. Yeah Yeah No. That's exactly it this was. I have to even know what I did. I think hitting the rampage on Wikipedia for like an hour. After I watched the stress I was just watching your eyes and mouth out after exposure to chemical. Yes yes I know it. Oh my God it was so bad. It was so fucking bad. Yeah that was terrible. Well I'm. I'm glad that I'm whether you were able to hope through this because Yeah Holy Shit. I'm probably going to do it again another week. Because it's I mean it's unavoidable. I'm GonNa Start Thinking about it if I don't view it for over two weeks home I got to. You're going to continue to watch it. I might I might have to be. It's going to be cancelled like I don't feel like anyone watches. This is like it's like this is us. Why would you watch this you to watch it because I love? I think it's like if I only do every two weeks. I won't get like a talk with exposure. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. I've seen some pretty bad stuff in my life. So Oh my God. It was pretty bad media shoe like you have a higher tolerance for it. I think you're right. You can do it. Look as long as it's going on. I'm watching these fucking terrible show. We're doing an amazing service. I like Oh God all right well. I'm really glad I'm really glad you could be on this one.

Wonderful! 156: Wonderful Teen Tournament of Champions

"Hi, this is Rachel mcelroy. Hello. This is Griffin Macaroni and this is wonderful on this show we like to talk about some interface stuff and we like to get bodacious about it and you might think why are they? So in my face about it, the I feel like I'm watching some Edgy Program on MTV spring break or road rules or Nick News I know that wasn't on MTV, and it wasn't really in your face although I felt like Linda was Kinda confrontational from time to Tinley no, she was brave she was brave for sure brave and bold Kurt loader is another person who's the number still very brave fill breath but on this show typically we do take a little bit easier on you and your ears and we give you what you need, which is a little bit of. Tart soft tarts a little bit pop. Can I interest you in a pop tart these trying times do you have any small wonders? I WANNA I wanNA talk about things that I did that I'm very proud of okay I already. Got Online at for Grocery store and I ordered our Thanksgiving dinner. Oh. Yeah. And I have never planned so far in advance for Thanksgiving and to know that this dinner is going to be made for us and available for pickup. It's incredible. Don't get it. I'm still making the sweet potato casserole I'm still making pecan Pie to sort of road dogs griffin will make the sweet treats but the other staples will we just don't even sweat it we yeah. You know how we feel about these foods we've talked about it but. These trying times it is nice to know. That I can take a little stress off my plate. Yep and put a little food on my plate and just sit and watch your fucking football. Watch your buffalo bills do their thing out on the grid. There I don't think. It's football here is how are they playing football now is this is what I'm. I'm not touching each other I'm guessing I'm detached from tweedle and I'm detached from professional sports to the extent that. Gun To my head. Don't even know if they're still doing football I feel like they're not. They should do the flag football is what they should do. Yeah. I know hockey could figure it out. Anyway My small wonder I have taken my first trepidation steps into the world of as Amar. Because I have I have so much trouble sleeping and it has been recommended to me that it may soothe me in a way that will make sleep a little bit more possible. So I've I've. Last. No I did not try and do it last night but I have I have taken a few anxiety naps. And just sort of thrown the the the all ear buds. And a big hold out those of you familiar with the mcoy family will know that Jason and Travis are big proponents but Griffin's always been kind of the rebel. Yeah. I don't think I really understood the. Genuine kind of therapeutic effects that it has on the brain. Especially, a brain as sort of A. Busy and horrible as mine, and so it's it's I, do this for you griffin have to turn to the Youtube for for real you do have a very, very pleasant voice. I could just I could pull out one of my own poetry books and just sit next to you and quietly read it. I'm more into like just sort of like people scratching a Mike or people just like squeezing a microphone interesting like raindrop sounds I'm not big on talking because then it gets my dreams and I don't like I ain't trying to get accepted because I saw a movie about that once. And it can get really complicated. Do you WANNA. Tell me you need a chair. You need share. Let me see. BE A kick. Someone does a prank on you to get you out and Ellen page has to be there as far as I know like if Ellen, pages and there, then you can't even do it. And she's always hanging around. Do you WanNa, do your first thing for me. My first thing is something I was thinking about yesterday that is kind of a relic of a very specific time period and that is the flash mob. All Man. I kind of forgot about him obviously now, they're not really happening for many reasons why a lot of people who don't know who? Think of something scary. Yeah. But it's not it's dancing from house. So, this is something that I believe I became familiar with with the two, thousand, eight grand central station. That was a big one. That was cool. That was one of I will say one of the cool once yeah. From like two, thousand, eight to two, thousand, ten, two, thousand eleven. These kind of blew up. Youtube. and it was a seemingly spontaneous assembly of strangers. All kind of doing some kind of choreographed movement without any kind of advance notice. So a lot of people would kind of it'd be in a public place and a lot of people would stumble upon it and be like what's happening this crazy I remember the name Improv everywhere or Improv anywhere Improv everywhere did the grand central station okay. The the origins of this. Everything I found said two, thousand three. There was a senior editor at Harper's named Bill Classic who a Organiz, his own flash mob where he created an email account a yahoo account just to give you a sense of the time period. Called the mob project that he sent a message to himself. And forward it to forty or fifty friends pretending like this was the cool event he had found out about and it was getting people to go to a ninth floor rug department of a macy's in New York, and approaching the same rug in anytime. Any kind of sales assistant came by they were to say that they were shopping for a love rug for their commune and that they made their purchase decisions as a group. and. So everybody he ended up getting like forty or fifty people there to participate in this. Yes. His intentions for this were a little cynical. He was kind of making fun of hipster culture of like Oh. This is you know like look everybody wants to be at the spot you know everybody wants to do this like crazy hip thing in this is like a commentary Blah Blah. I would say this trend was not especially kind to our retail workers. No, actually when I was researching this, there is a particular flash mob that led to significant damage. It was a a pillow fight in San Francisco two, thousand, nine on Valentine's Day they did an annual mass pillow fight the caused more than twenty thousand dollars, damages where at. A store in a park in apart how do you do twenty thousand dollars worth of damage in. Those feathers stewed. These guy do it. The more. Harmless ones. The ones that I always found really great or the choreographed dances yes. There have been a lot of performances of thriller. Throughout the country. There was a performance of single ladies. In London's Piccadilly Circus where a hundred women performed the choreographed dance together Ohio State University did one in two, thousand ten to don't stop believing. And it of course, like lead institutions everywhere to be like should be doing this. College is going to do it now should we do one I? Think the office is the one that kind of. Shake right? No. They did the walk down the aisle to like the the one song that was like they. Also, they're all they were trying to do their own viral. Yes. Yeah. They they did a lot of that. This was the thing The. The record was a performance of thriller where they had fourteen thousand people in Mexico WHA- forming the thriller dancers the largest flash mob that's intimidating. I feel like if I saw fourteen thousand people all starting to move in unison I would just like I would open a manhole cover and just jump inside in hide and wait the cat I I. Don't know if I would ever actually want to participate in anything like this no way. But watching the videos is so charming because it I don't know there's just something kind of beautiful about all those people working together for a particular goal. That is kind of silly but it is fun and and Nice, to see the dance one never did it for me but you mentioned we haven't actually talked about what the Grand Central Station on was. It was easily over one hundred people. It was it was. Do you know how many people were involved with a hundred people? Two hundred people were involved with that where at a specific time? I. Think there was some sort of signal. All of the people froze in place like like mannequins and so the people who are not part of this would just be walking in the world froze around them like that's the kind of thing that I think is really fucking cool. It is cool. I. Mean It's like a very busy noisy location and to just watch this video of people walking through in the silence like just staring at these still people. Yes. Very incredible. I also recall they've done a lot of stuff obviously subways in like public transit systems are kind of perfect for this because it's like a captive audience. I remember one where they got a bunch of twins, a bunch of sets of twins and. One. Part of the twins set like fifteen people all got on this train at the same station dress a certain way, and then on the very next station, the other half of the twin pairing. Scott. On dress the exact same way and sat like the exact same way opposite they're twin without addressing it and the other people do trade we're like what the fuck is going on. Improv everywhere is a little different like a lot of what they do comes across like a flash mob but the purpose of a flash mob is more than it is it is strangers participating in this either whether it's like emailed or text like this instruction that everybody is following whereas Improv everywhere I'm sure is a little more out in coordinated in advance got. This is this is hurling me back like an Internet whole there was. Like early arts group called. PRANKSTER, group. That did like really early versions of like this stuff like there was a musical that just broke out in the middle of a library about how much they love reading. Oh, my God I was like obsessed with them. This was like early ass Internet stuff. I'm not familiar with this one. Hey can I tell you about my first thing? Yes. My thing is I'm a little bit embarrassed about. Is We've talked about top chef before on this show and how much we really really do enjoy that that that program well, today I want to talk about the opposite of top chef which is chopped. Chopped chopped is the opposite I think in almost virtually every way it is a show on the food network. That there is about infinity episodes of yeah. Like our hotel room go. So Yeah we've talked about that before about like hgtv is a channel that has a bunch of programming that Rachel and I do not watch unless we're in a strange place, an a hotel room and you know we don't have access to our usual streaming shit and it's like well I guess we just turn on HDTV and watch whatever is there chopped is like the hgtv of television shows because at some point? Chopped at on some channel, there's going to be chopped chopped his airing right now I bet. I have no way of proving that except that food network run like food network shows one of their shows and then gives you a pallet cleanser of chopped before it gets to its next program. I don't know that I've ever turned on food network and not seen chopped. Yes. So there are nearly Well I guess I kind of reveal it there nearly six hundred episodes of chopped there are nearly I would've thought there are more. That's so many it's been. It's only been on the air since two thousand, nine eleven years they have produced six hundred episodes of the television show I mean they could definitely film a few a day. So they actually shoot four seasons at a time Oh my God, which is wild because show is a pretty brutal shoot. It is a twelve hour day roaming this program yeah. I mean I guess they have to clean and reset every time, but it seems like I mean the show itself seems like so fast paced I mean that is not super uncommon for a television show I feel like twelve hours to shoot a whole episode front to back with like very little. They don't need a lot of extra be Roller Shit like that like twelve hours especially wild except you consider that they're shooting four seasons at a time. It is one of the more grueling production schedules of a television show that is on online. I've seen some horror stories actually from contestants. Just, like, yeah the craft services like they gave me too rubbery eggs to. Allan. Allan from. Queer eye for the straight guy the original right isn't that what he is from? Has said that he isn't allowed to sit down. Always standing is always standing up that's typical. So if you've never watched chopped, which seems unlikely, it is a cooking competition show where each episode, there are three chefs. Who are no there's four shafts aren't there who are competing? I. Should really know how many chefs there's four There are three rounds that they are whittled down over. So yes, there would be four shafts. There is the appetizer round, the entree round in the desert round and each round they have mystery box that they open up and it will have a wide array of garbage that they then have to make a dish out of they have to use all the ingredients to all the ingredients they get dinged if they don't So usually the ingredients will have some sort of weird outlier or to them. So it'll be like here is some A. Pork ribs and some barbecue sauce and some chocolate ice cream and some like boisterous oysters in some atomic warheads. And Good luck chefs have fun and so the odds are. Stacked against them that judges. There's judges who celebrity chef judges right? Who then tear these meals usually. The odds are so stacked against. That makes genuinely exciting when somebody cooks something that looks even remotely palatable. Those are usually the people who who end up winning and like there's a lot about the show. That's bad like the it has a sort of manufactured over dramatic tone that is like absolutely repellent to me. But like. It's always there. It is reliably it is reliably hitting six to seven out of ten. In a way that. You're talking about a bad relationship like you know it's not great but it's consistent. I mean it can't hurt me chopped can't, but it can't be bad but it's never. So I've never hit the threshold with chopper Mike this Sclera it's always just it's always there well, and it's variety of it right? Like the three meals the three baskets, the different contestants every episode, you can set your watch by chopped. And it switches up so much. It's like I was saying it's it's relatively fast pace. So like if you're like, oh I don't like you know this basket there's another basket coming in like seven minutes to round just around the river Ben. has had some sort of positive effects. It has launched a lot of chef careers it as each episode, the chefs usually hail from a restaurant in various parts of the country and they do a little feature on that restaurant and it's been for the most part like pretty positive for the businesses featured, which is which is nice but it's also created this weird subcategory of professional. Who are known for appearing on chopped because chopped his head so many different kinds of seasons. Data I'M GONNA I'M GONNA list all of the season's okay. All of these are real. chopped. Champions chopped all stars I guess that's different than chopped champions chopped grill masters chopped tournament of stars chopped ultimate champions. Chopped impossible the the oddly convention breaking. Teen Tournament. That's all it's called. Tournament chopped after hours do chopped starpower chopped sweet showdown. And chopped beat the judge and there's also been a ton of like how specials one offs. Yeah. There's an there's so much of this show it is wild to me. I cannot think of a show that there is more of it except for maybe like daytime soap operas and talk shows and things like that. You talked about the sort of consistency of it, and that is one of the the more appealing aspects of chop. But Ted Allen did an interview where he talked about the show's unaired pilot episode and I would like to read. A little bit about the unaired pilot episode because it is Bonkers, it was filmed at the culinary school at the Art Institute of New York. And according to Alan, it was originally a lot more elaborate was set in a mansion. The host was a butler, the Butler held a Chihuahua and win a chef was chopped. The losing dish was fed to the Chihuahua. Food Network found the pilot episode. Quote a little too weird but decided to the general premise of the show and more straightforward competition format. Guy Sliding sliding fucking doors salad have been incredible. and kind of like a murder mystery. I mean, we're thinking about done. It elicits images of who done at the very short lived. Knock Great Reality Butler. Mystery show. But yeah. It's an again not not my favorite show but in a lot of ways, it is my favorite. It's my favorite one of my favorite things that I know is just GonNa be there there's always chop and I don't know that I've ever seen the same episode twice because the law of large numbers would prohibit true. Yeah. There's so much fucking chump there is teen tournament. Can still your. Yes. Can we talk about hair care? We can I don't get to talk about my hair enough.

Can't tell about my second thing that look on your face tells me that you're a real stinker about it and it's something you think I'm going to be really into what you got. Okay. So this is a trip to the poetry corner now I? Know I've been spending a lot time in the poetry corner, but it never laughed I feel safe right. I was born in a poetry corner. The Room really is just a room with one corner now, and that is the poetry corner in that is where I always am it's a weird almost sort of light bulb shaped room with one corner and the rest of it is just sort of round edges. The reason I am particularly excited is the poet I am bringing is one that I know for sure Griffin knows about because it is e e cummings. Is Your heart I carry in my heart yes. I'm sorry babe. I didn't mean divers jer. Poetry. Bubble. Now I expected you to come ready. Okay. This is to be fair. You've said like Griffin knows a lot about e cummings, I know this poem. The style of e e cummings otherwise I know nothing about e e cummings the. I have often notice that when Griffin has to call a poet or a particular style of poetry this is who goes to or Shel Silverstein. It's one of the two. True. It's either Sylvia Stout taking the garbage out or it's e cummings and his crazy lines, crazy words and his mini mini, commas, and periods. I have never been a huge fan of e e cummings but I thought this would be fun for both of us because you could get a little more background on this guy. You're always shouting out. Yeah and I could kind of figure out what the fuss is about arguably the worst. It to read their work over an audio medium because it's your comings work is also very much about how it is is hard to ranged and laid out, and it has a sort of visual element by virtue of of how it is organized on the page i. a lot of people know about e e cummings just because he was kind of head of the class on on creating poems in this kind of crazy spacing and punctuation and lower case I learned about him in school like I can't I cannot remember too many other poets were like obviously learn about probably Robert Frost and my Angelou, Angeles yes. But like e Cummings think stuck with me for whatever reason became became my go-to poet reference because of. The uniqueness. The visual unique if I don't have an ear for poetry but I have an eye or like word lay out and that's what e Cummings has. Yeah. So He Was Born in Massachusetts Scott his be a and from Harvard and was writing in the very early twentieth century and so that that's kind of interesting I. Think Given the time period to be this kind of avant-garde in that time period he started writing poetry very young. The article I read about him said that between the ages of Eight and twenty two, he wrote a poem a day well. Were they all good though? Of course not I'm sure they were but just the practice of it I think a lot about you know that that thousand hours or whatever it is like. Ten thousand hours oh well. That's I have a little more to go. But it just investing the time creating a practice out of it says a lot for kind of became who he was He was in the first World War and then returned home. He did. He did what? Apparently a lot of people were doing in the time period which was volunteering for ambulance service which was a popular choice among people who were pacifists. So it's like that would hemingway did. I duNno I thought. That's what Hemingway did. I don't know but so he Once, he came home from that. He resumed his long affair with this woman, Elaine Fair who was married to his friend. Here's the interesting thing. His friend knew about and approved of the relationship Elaine ended up giving birth to e cummings. daughter and then. Fair got divorced from Elena so that she could marry e Cummings and then a year later she divorced e Cummings and were an office somebody else So it's kind of an interesting with tragic love story that he like carried on this relationship. Yeah. Kind of in controversy for years, and then they finally together and she called it a sounds like they were all like pretty cool with it. Everybody was on board. I, think a just you know ultimately, it wasn't meant to be but I think it informed a lot of his poetry because he wrote a lot of love poems. Sure. The thing is interesting about e that I didn't really realize until I started doing research. So he started kind of experimenting with form in the nineteen twenties. and those kind of experimentation actually got him an Award Nineteen Twenty Five Dial magazine chose him for their annual word of two thousand dollars. which was a full year's income for the writer. Yeah And then he was able to publish an additional collection kind of furthering his experimentation with style But the thing about e cummings is that what he was writing about was not particularly avangard. His experiments with language were more about getting you to kind of rethink these kind of standard topics in poetry 'cause he was writing about. Nature and Childhood and love right in kind of a way that was pretty pretty typical the poetry at the time well, in pretty explicit like there was never. I don't remember reading any of his poems and being sort of confused about what they were. Picking up e Coleman's book at the Library and thinking like Oh this is a lot more accessible than I was expecting. Yeah. A A lot of poets talked about his work and said that He had a this is. Richard Blackmore who wrote essays about craft and he said that e coming to the fine talent for using familiar even almost dead words in such a context as to make them suddenly impervious to every. Sense, they become unable to speak but with a great air of being bursting with something very important and precise to say So he he wrote a lot of as I mentioned love poems, and The one I was Gonna read is the one that you you caught on her kinda read all of it in the span of about second half. So don't blink or you'll miss it. There is so this poem. I don't have any real sentimental attachment to it, but there is a line towards the end that has always stuck with me. was there more to it than what that just that one line. Oh, yeah, I know I always thought it was just that. Sort of like half a Haiku us, there are a lot of brackets in parentheses and line breaks, which is not necessarily going to come across in my reading but I think it will kind of communicate what I said, which is that you know he's not writing about anything particularly experimental and so you you develop a connection to him even if you may find the punctuation a little intimidating. I, carry your heart with me. I carry in my heart I. AM never without it anywhere i. go you go idear and whatever is done by only me is doing my darling I fear no fate for your my fate my sweet I want no world for beautiful. You are my world my true and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a son will always. Sing is you here's the deepest secret nobody knows. Here's the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life which grows higher than soul can hope or mine can hide in. This is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart a carry your heart I carry it in my heart was really good but wonder that that. That line keeping the stars apart like a head to Gulick are people using this line did this line really stick with me for over a decade and I think I think that's what what happened. I think I remember that I remember Justin saying that I think it was part of I think maybe justice anyhow as part of their vows or something really. Yeah. It's it's a very good line. Yeah. No kidding. A I I don't know. I eat coming. Not Somebody that You know I keep on my bedside table. But it's it's admirable. You know he was like it's not like I have to write about something crazy and abstract I don't have to like take a flour and make it sound like it's the Grand Canyon you know. But if I if I do some work with the spacing. About. Kind of the cadence that most people read with you know and put something inventive on the page it will make the topic new again. So school. Can I tell you about my second thing? Yes I'm really excited I struggled a long time with what to what to talk about here because this is our last episode before Halloween and I like to talk about like classic horror movies that I like because I really love this genre whole lot. But I couldn't think of one that was exciting. One that got me excited enough to like really want to focus on it. So I've talked about like the alien franchise I adore the thing evil dead like they're classics. I. Want to watch every year around this time and I, just remembered another one that I love talking about it's the movie poltergeist. Seen poltergeists. Yes. I have fucking poltergeists is so good. It's got everything that's t Nelson right it's got the Craig t Nelson you've gotTa have coach you must. Have Coaching, your movie this this film if you have not seen it is like the ultimate Trojan horse of horror movies because it was written and produced in part by Steven Spielberg and back then it was released in nineteen eighty two, which was two years before the PG thirteen rating was invented and the motion picture association originally gave this film in our rating. Steven Spielberg and the director of the movie went to the CIA and like appealed that and pushed for a lighter rating so that more people could come see it and because there was no PG thirteen, they're like, all right. We're GONNA kick that right down to. Right on down to. And this film is fucking terrifying and it has some genuinely like gory practical effects and super scary practical effects. I. Saw this film as an adult. I'm glad I did because if I saw it, it's a kid it would've ruined my life a lot of a lot of children in danger a lot of children in danger a lot of. Dead activity visualized in Gooey days. It's it's a ghost story about family living in this sort of planned neighborhood that has been built you find out throughout the film sort of unceremoniously on top of cemetery, and so the spirits of that cemetery are. Haunting, this one particular household and You Watch this film and you kind of think you know what is at certain points like you think it has reached the threshold of the horror that it is going to present, but it just keeps escalating more and more and more that by the end of it, I genuinely was in shock. that. I was watching film. Yeah. That's a good point because a lot of Halloween movies they like they have their villain and there the whole movie is just the villain chasing people until you kind of like we're like all right I know this and okay that's going to happen. But this one surprises you with different approaches it takes I think because it is. Think. You know it's a ghost story and you think you know like what that means and that's what's great about this. There's so many things that are great about this movie but what is greatest had it plays into that expectation at the start of the movie, you get the little girl looking at the TV screen static and there's the earthquake and the little hand coming out of the TV, and she looks at the cameras there he error and then the next day these parents are like responding to chairs moving in the kitchen with almost asserted like a sort of. Curiosity the like isn't this Delightful Watch watch the chairs are moving. And you think like so it's going to move stuff around and sort of scare them that way. But then it gets pretty wild One of the little girl is sucked into the house by the poltergeist and there's a beast demon that. Pool seeing the backyard pool scene at the climax of the movie where on dead hands shoot out of the pool. There's a tree that smashes in through a window and tries to abduct a little boy. There is there there is a scene that is one of the scariest things I've ever seen a film where. There's a team of researchers that comes to the house and one of them stays the night and goes into the kitchen for a midnight snack and sees a raw steak like explode from within itself like regurgitating meat from out of its body, and then the drumstick he was eating has maggots all over it, and then he goes to the kitchen or he goes to the bathroom to wash his face off, and then he washes his fucking face off like pulls the skin off of his face. It's fucking. I watched it this morning till like rem it is fucking grotesque and horrifying in a way that like caught me in my late twenties off guard. Yeah. It is. But at the same time. The the nonchalant way that the parents sort of respond to this spectral activity in their house slowly blake transforms into this weirdly practical rescue mission of their daughter who's been sucked into the ghost world, and that goes world has an internal logic and a rule set. That is absolutely my shit especially in horror movies and they bring in the spirit medium. WHO's like, okay we need to figure out where the entrance the portal is. The exit, the portal we need to find out who's got her, what they want we need to figure out to communicate with, and they just like go on this mission to save their daughter and tire rope retire rope to the MOM and like center into the goes like and I love that I love when the the victims in horror movies like become proactive. That is like the entire concede of the final girl in Slasher flicks. Which I love that shit to. But this is a different take on it where it's like the whole family is is like we're terrified of this obviously horrifying thing that's in our house but like. Like fuck it. We are going to do whatever it takes to save our daughter and it plays with this balance of like yeah, guys. Yeah. Coach fucking get him and also like get. Coach it's so bad in their coach such perfect casting I. This is one of this criteria Nelson's like breakout film I. Mean It is his break. It is like I feel like the only film that that people regard with a lot of admiration that stars Craig t Nelson. Is seems like such a practical. Dad Yeah. This film you know so you're watching him and you're kind of like, yeah, I mean that's what person would do because it's Craig. But what's great about this also is that it has a false ending and at one point, Craig t Nelson's like all right. We need to get the Fuck Outta here I'm GonNa go talk to the manager I. Think one of the kids is like on a Date and like the Daiwa has happened and you're like Oh everything's fine and then the poltergeist strikes back in this huge and terrifying way and like it's just the wife and the two young kids at home, it's like Holy Shit I cannot believe it's like a second way forgotten about that the movies brilliant structured brilliantly and it is like a fun watch like it is a fun. Hornby I think about. Yeah I. Just I really like this movie I think it hangs with like the thing and and the Alien Flakes Spielberg Classic Horror Film Spielberg another sort of it's like, Oh, I. Think we're GonNa have some fun E. T. Action and it's like, no we'll learn a lot along the way become closer friends. Yeah, it is a it's. The House is the sole setting for the film and is a haunted house and like that's cool because you watch it deteriorate over time as a lot of really memorable characters like the spirit medium who comes in and saves the day. Man It's a great flick if you've not seen it. and. You have the stomach for I would highly recommend tuning into it this this this hallows eve. Glad you brought that I feel like I have kind of shied away from the scary film. The seas, I would watch poltergeist tonight for sure. Sounds. Good. Yeah. Can I friends at home talking about? Yes emily says seeing lost nerf darts my partner and I don't have kids. But we've been spotting these little blue and orange starts in yards long our cul de sac lately while walking the dog, it makes me smile to see the remnants of kids having fun. I think I've probably spent about ten percent of my life looking for NERF darts that I fired off. We had a NERF gun before we had Henry specifically to keep our cat in line and I remember we did not shoot our cat with nerf Dow there was the suggestion that it would. It would de incentivize some actions we didn't like it was a water gun it wasn't like we weren't sure shooting NERF garments. Dark on we definitely had a NERF DART gun because I'm. Fine, finding those darts under the couch. Okay. Well, I think I got him for Goof ups and Griffin just had a good time gun. Yeah. A good time. Radman okay. Michael Says Keyboard shortcuts I. Do a lot of digital art for funding has a job and being able to switch between tools quickly as wonderful I remember when I discovered keyboard shortcuts. Four years and editing shows probably even later than that and it like have my editing time because I have all my shit. So so specific. It's like it is the first thing I do when I get a new piece of software I've started using Abelson instead of logic for for all my music composition stuff, and it is a whole different set of keyboard shortcuts I spent so long learning in in logic and I'm having a deprogrammed my brain, but it's Love it. You know what's funny is that I know copy and paste in my in my Microsoft word. I don't know cut though never memorize that one. Game I know it's just right next to it attacks it's it's control ex I will go up will copy something with my little shortcut and then I will go up to the edit menu and I will select Know, you don't have to copy uncut it right All, now. When you added it puts it on your clipboard so that you can paste it I. Think I think I think I knew that I think babe. The way you're looking at, me makes me. Makes you question? That You should learn I recently learned. Me And dad have been doing a lot of writing. And I just learned all the Google Docs keyboard shortcuts. There's so many and so is invaluable to know that stuff. Hey I wanNA thank and this is an important one blow in and a gun. For the use far theme Song Money Won't pay. This is the song.

The Various Types of Hauntings: 99 Problems and a Slimer isnt One | 140

"Hey, animal lovers on Kate. Golden, I studied psychology and evolutionary biology, and I hosta comedy educational puck has called creature feature. The podcast delves into the most unbelievable animal and human behaviors on the planet every Wednesday kissed comedians and scientists delve into the minds of the craziest creatures. Evolution has concocted. We ask are we really that different from our hairier cousins? Iheartradio is number one for podcast. But don't take our word for it fine creature feature on the iheartradio app or wherever you get your podcasts. Disturbed from city to city, an incredible historical panic. I think we're getting into a weird area. Stereo, you can't handle the truth through this is steriods sixty one. The truth is out there. But you won't find it here coming for you. Look that has one of them now. Welcome in hysteria nation. The podcast hasn't seen every type of spirit out there mostly because we don't Bizet museums. This is a stereo fifty-one as I explained before we think the spirit of a seventeenth century Moldavian tyrant is alive and well and a painting at the Manhattan museum of art. I've sampled every spirit out there that I think that's the first thing he said he's, he's knocking on all cylinders. We are broadcasting from the lower fourth dimension, otherwise known as Chicago. We are your hosts and lead researchers in this paranormal pursuit. I'm John go forth in this. This is Brent hand. I have one question for you. John. What's that? Do you think we'll discuss any spirits today? Capable of possessing robots sounds like a fun field trip. That other voice, your here ensures cross. Is the third host of this show? And the only one who might actually get nicer, if they are possessed by an evil spirit. He is the one the only conspiracy but I don't think we'll have to worry about that. I have standards. I have built CBA in my lab to help producing the show. Instead he sits Reynolds, eight drinking and thinking about things like the end of the human race or how to get possessed per se by evil spirits. Hey, I also kill the occasional neighborhood cat. He's, he's not lying about that Brent. It raises a concern for me over the years we've struggled with Seba, it's anger level, his homicide, tendencies shrew, even his absolute lack of anything resembling empathy. That's that's fact, is it possible that he's already possessed, I guess anything's possible, but don't you think evil spirit would be probably smarter. I'm sitting right here. I mean it's a good point. They'd also probably be better at, like creating in causing havoc. I mean, his escapades are, what would you use juvenile at best or escapades cheeky, again, I can hear you guys plus a real evil spirit wouldn't have him sitting around a like a useless drunk toaster. He'd have a job to afford all the evil escapades he'd be he'd be out doing things making things happen sharks with lasers on their head don't by themselves. It's a tough job market for evil robots. These days. And I have to imagine a real real evil spirit will actually be good at killing things. I mean he's failed at killing both of us. I mean, the best he's been able to do as neighborhood cats and let's be honest, even the ones even the neighborhood cats. He gets the just the fat ones. I'll put six seven eight nine ten anger dummied sacks. One two, three four does not compute danger will Robinson. And there, there goes didn't take it didn't take as long as oh. And now I thought we'd have to go on for another segment or say, absolutely. What the hell are you talking about what just happened? But we need to make one hundred percent share. He weren't possessed by an evil spirit. Brin came up with the idea of making you so angry, you'd overload and reboot. I mean, we figured if you're a possessed your eyes would turn red, and you try to go on a killing rampage or something. Yeah. But since you didn't we know you're the lovable robot. We've all came to tolerate. That's the right word. Yeah. Yes. That is correct. No possession here. Carry on meet sex. That was awfully agreeable this week, we are talking haunting 's, and typically the types of huntings that are out there, ask around, it seems everyone knows someone or is someone who's experienced haunting or a paranormal event in one way or another be it something you saw the corner of your eye. You hear sounds like footsteps laughter whispers, etc. Stuff like that things move on their own, like doors opening and closing or things citing across a table. A touch so far everything. You've references just having children. Right. That's I mean that's. And then the last one, I was going to say a possession, which, you know, days, there are so many types of occurrences, that the list could go on forever, like when goes poison people and robots get blamed. You use literally admitted that on this show. We can pull the tape. Yeah, we know it was you. But this week instead of looking at one specific haunting or once civic case, we're looking at all the different types of entities that people could actually be having contact with when they have these experiences spirits. Think of our alien species episodes, but with the dead or demons truth ex-. Yeah, yeah, that's true. Or not Joe does that too truce in one to two truths at ally. Combing hundred forty episodes meaning, but he makes a good point that all haunting spirits, paranormal reach outs aren't necessarily just dead people. Right. Not necessarily. So before we start John, what do you think the scariest type of haunting before we get into the list, a person could go through? What do you think is the worst my? I've never been through one but to try to relate it back to any of my personal experiences. I have to imagine when people talk about sleep paralysis, but truly believe that a demon were some sort of evil. Apparition is in the room with them. And they, they can't do anything about it has to be truly frightening. I it wasn't that long ago. I had some surgery and they put me under for the surgery. I've been put under before and never had a problem with it whatsoever, this time around, you know, when they put you under general anesthesia, they, they intimate, they put the tube down your throat. Right. And I woke up like before I was supposed to it. Wasn't like one of those where you look down. And they're still cutting you or anything. But I woke up like before I was supposed to I still have the tube. And I was, you know, how that stuff really just shut your whole body down. I completely had sleep Ralph's meat. I couldn't even open my eyes yet you had. Yeah. Chemically induced chemically induced, sleep rallies. Not the normal type not your normal type and. If you've ever had a two dining throat. It makes you feel like you can't breathe because it's, it's essentially breathing for you. And, and so to lay there, not even have the control over your is much less pulling the tube out. Or but you have no control over your surroundings and not be able to communicate that to anyone and having something go on around you. That is, is not something you necessarily want to happen, admittedly mine, wasn't a, a paranormal apparition or anything like that. But I have to imagine I mean, it was frightening for me, and I and it was completely explainable. I knew why I couldn't move. I was still terrified, so. Since I've been with Lisa, I've had, so you're saying, that's the most terrifying is her having to be with you, right. Yeah, six surgeries. I think. And so my big thing is I wake up in surgeries since I was young. And so they tell me every time when you go and tell the allergist tell the doctor gonna wake up and every time you tell the doctor they go, they, they laugh that doesn't happen or so. I had my I had five hand surgeries. When so long story short, I, I actually had to have a finger reattached. That's not just a colorful play on words. Mr han. Yes. So I actually ripped a finger off. It was very painful. I crushed my hand. They reattached the I had pins, all this stuff five surgeries, five cups and surgeries. Middle of them, cutting on me now, I don't feel anything, but you wake up every one of them said, oh, that's not going to happen. That's not going to happen with the different anesthesiologist and I woke up. So then I had the thanks to see about ahead to have my gallbladder removed. Which I had, so my call butter ripped open, and I had sepsis and everything. So they had to open me up and endure thing when I went in before I'm like I wake up in surgery and they said, what type of surgery and I said, all surgery may go. Well what surgeries were your last ones? I told him a hamster that's different. That's different. And I go, but I've had you know, I woke up during my appendix. Yeah, I won't give me me me me, I woke up with the tube down my throat like you. But unfortunately I did move and I collapsed both by lungs. So I had to be put on them when I came out I was in the ICU and I was on a breathing machine for a while. Because guess what I woke up during surgery and then moved. And, you know, and jerkin claps both my lungs, and it is a terrifying thing when you can't breathe, and that feels like you're, I guess is breathing for you like you said. But all you know is I'm, I'm dying. I'm dying. I can't breathe a Cambria with doctors are great. And sometimes they're also the low full of themselves where you visited by spirit during this. I had a oh, I'm sorry. I only get operated on by ghosts. Oh, so that's how this ties in God. It got or the possessed. It's part of I really shit insurance scalpels Greenpeace soup. Oh man. I think mine to not be the one getting possess. But if someone was truly possessed, and they're levitating, they're speaking Latin, and all these things that's gotta be absolutely terrifying. But also, the, the whole poltergeist of things slamming you ever watched. Well, the movie poltergeist, but which is Caroline Charolais movie holds up. It had fantastic. The other one, thanks to Tom Skerritt. What is the, the what are all those haunting movies that? They're done like found footage. What are those called the Blair witch project? No. The paranormal activity. Yeah, yeah. We're like things are moving and things that are happening and stuff like that, that you have no control over. I think that would probably be a little less scary than like this was literally, a demon or the devil. 'cause you can leave. That they radically. I went with mine because you can run out of the house. Well, because people have to stay in those houses. Oh, baby. This is beautiful. Chandelier hanging up here, kids, sl plane is a beautiful neighborhood being. I really love them. This is really nice. Too bad. We can't stay you can get out y'all. Stay. That's so true, though, like in even in these shows and then people go, this is my house. Well, it's also there. They think they seem to have the same constitution that you do. So, right. Right. Better invest in some sage in salt. So while we're on that note before we get into the heart of the matter Sebok. What do you think the, the scariest type of apparition or, or spirit, or haunting is, I was watching this show where this house was quote unquote haunted, anyway, the ghost was smashing? All these bottles on the bar. You anytime that breaking bottles of booze. It's the scariest why can't they just have drinks with me? I'd love to have a pet ghost or demon. Yup. Yeah. Or how about all the cats you've killed comeback, too high. You never happen. Why I take their souls? I think we might need to shut him down on that note, we're going to go to break when we come back, we're going to talk the types of haunting you can actually have coming up on hysteria. Fifty one.

Of not being able to communicate with us of my way. I gotta get to the bathroom. It's like the ooh they were really just trying to say, like guys, compla- excuse me. Had a frog in my throat. Yeah. You know what if the, the veil the thin veil that separates us, also gargoyles the, the, the whole meaning behind it all? Or maybe it's like spoiler alert. Skip thirty seconds. If you haven't seen the movie the others, but we're, they don't know they're dead, or we're there ghosts vice versa. I haven't seen the movie the others. Well, guess what? You're screwed now. I think twenty plus years is a safe amount until you could kinda talk about your defending yourself over there. I wasn't even complaining. That to our listeners home that I never seen that either. Listeners. Go ahead and be mad. I'm it's okay but yeah they walk up behind you. And they're like, hey, watch out for that tree branch, you're about to run into, but it sounds like we're. You're like. That was the tree branch. Yeah. So let's break them down. John, let's Dame some of the types of spook, Specter's, ghouls, ghosts goblins, and things that you can run into out there in the world of the weird in paranormal, there are seven of them. Yes, there are seven basic types of haunting or ghosts. What are they intelligent? Residual demonic demonic possessed intelligent human entity. Say that five times fast poltergeist shadow people and elemental earth. Fire wind water heart. Go. Lord have mercy. So let's bring it down and start with an intelligent haunting. So what that says, is this one you're dealing with an intelligent ghost. This can communicate with you interact with you. It seems like it has an intelligence of its own. It's not just slap in walls, and pinging babies. It's, it's doing things that are actually those type of ghosts all a slow bench. Maybe the old baby Pinscher, which are manner. I don't know if you're familiar with that one is very hard to research. So the paranormal envious. Hello. Here s pick up the phone. We've got more. Here's the other line. Okay. Hello, paranormal us. My baby got pinched. Okay. Anything else also my wall sound like they'd be slapped. Oh, goodness. You're dealing with a spectre level four, a paranormal, intelligent, maybe pitcher, wall, slapper some priests was right. Okay. That's a lot. I'll call my shaman though, just to gaze. Paranormal MD. It's this website and they broke it down as saying. And it tells me goes Honey is best described as responsive usually human entity. I love that usually with whom you have interactive intelligent, communication, this type of entity is seemingly the personality of a person who once lived, and who was either trapped in our world, or in between ours and another realm or who has already moved onto the next plane and can now freely travel back and forth between our Roman. There's and are presumably will sway. That's really frightening. Forget the, the haunting part of it. There are there are like there are formerly human entities floating around out there watching things you do. Behind closed doors. Right. Which is why I always pick a spot and stare when I masturbate just in case ones. They're okay head to go straight there. I didn't have to go straight there. I chose to though, like just, you know establish dominance. Would you hear a bump in the night, bump? Back louder established dominance. I meant thing. Yeah, you're like I go, yeah. Take it. Good. Lord. Take it. It's like when we were at the congress hotel and Gioja started, very, very expletives. Bliss at Zo. So, yeah. Literally, I have video of us. It's just our hands on the ouija board and the plan, Chet in jobs like fucking pussies. Come on. Take me take it come on there. Just sitting there for another twenty minutes moving. You didn't really work out. Oh well Joe texted me last night, he was at a night ranger concert. Oh my God. Did he get a signpost of the weekend at the have done at the frame store, and they played high enough? Damn Yankees enough of Nitra. Well, yeah. Damn Yankees were them and the new the news. Something I wondered is can you take me high enough? Let's never over rope. I just love Ted Nugent in eighties, Oakley's chewing, gum, just, like I don't even want to be in this video. Yeah. So there kids, there's the singing for the episode. Also getting back to these intelligent haunting me saying tells it goes are not evil or dangerous. Others completely disagree with that by fight. They do. They have on read it spirited discussions on rail. Yeah. Think human personalities. And if this was a kind person, they're going to be a kind ghost, if they were a Goforth douchebag, they're going to be, I'm sorry. That was rude a to do banks a no. They were an ass at in life. They might be an ass hat in death. No one's laughing. They're all listening, because this is a live show. I don't know if you know that or not, those are just cardboard cutouts, John saying, as they, listen, they're not laughing, it's, it's heading humor. You gotta think either thinking. A lot of these ghosts. They say are doing these things seeking to get the attention of living, people for whatever reason to get attention. They might turn on things. They might turn off. Things they hide objects, move, things make noise or any other type of annoying nuisance behavior, why maybe they need help to pass on the other side while help them get to hell not necessarily, what they're referencing about. But okay. Or maybe maybe to finish a task left undone like sending their enemies to hell. I mean at least he's on point. He's, he's, he's got a solid. You know, he's a line, he's going for I would I would hate to have been his third grade English teacher. When they say you don't give me a sentence example, and then diagram it sitting Easter. Well, I'm technically he wasn't in correct. What's while the entity they say is stuck in a death state does not know they are dead in a simply continuing with life on its own? Spoiler alert skip thirty seconds. If you don't want this. I see people Bruce, Willis, he was stuck in a destined didn't know you. Nice Trump in there. See, but twelve seconds late. But. Yeah. He didn't know he was dead. Same thing goes has sometimes they've been known to be trapped between two planes of existence and are unable to move on over more times than not. The entities. We come across are able to move freely coming and going as they choose fuck yet. Do whatever you want forever. So, John, the key factors, an intelligent hunting just summing it up the interact with you communication respond to noises. They can make noises. And if it goes does not notice you or other human beings and cannot interact communicate with you. It's not an intelligent haunting. One of the cool things to think about when you talk about ghosts your own death. I'm ignoring him of just ignoring him. One of the cool things to think about we talk about ghost is, if they exist, if ghosts are real in, they are able to be seen heard or interacted with on our plane of existence in one way, shape or form. They would have to obey the laws of physics on our planet existence. Right. Maybe not. But maybe, maybe not I don't know as far as everything we know from scientific perspective, even things that are out there unusual weird half to follow the laws of physics, as we understand. Maybe they've mastered, anti-matter or dark energy, and that breaks her busies maybe that's what they run on. He plays devil's advocate on everything I say, but keep going everything. It's okay. It's okay. All right. So, so the point I'm trying to get to for a really interrupted is if they if ghosts are real equipped, be something, like where their, their makeup is like on the quantum level. Meaning they say things that are there on the, on the quantum level can be. It's poltergeist because believing right? Right. That's exactly what I'm saying. When you think about it. They say the things on the quantum level. Can you know, accidentally escaped they, they, they've built things that are on the quantum level like they can't keep inside of, of the places. They tried to keep them inside because they pass through walls, what one of the things about ghosts is that they, you know, supposedly pass through things it author, so small they can still interact with right. Or maybe they've moved on. Well, maybe they're in another universe of their own that has completely different physics in ours. And that's why when they interacted it, it messes with ours, maybe also messes with there's maybe it's like, like we were talking about when they don't know, maybe sometimes they don't know their dad or we are maybe they're the scientists that are interacting with us. They're trying to figure it out on their plane of existence of the not really dead. They're just an another. They've moved on demotic possessed human entity. Intelligent, the mouthful that one. John was a new one to me living. Humans can experience a negative demonic. Like oppression or possession. But here's the big, but the demon or negative energy. Lie. Yeah. You gotta brothers canton. It's after the soul energy conscious this negative force does not possess the physical body. It's after the energy soul and consciousness but they can control it while it's still attached. The human sinner conscious energy. Soul. That makes the person who they are. So maybe peck is a dick because he secretly has a demon attached to him. Yes. Now, I think he's just a dick. There might be I don't understand anything you say, meaning what that said is, they don't possess your body, but they latch onto your body 'cause they're consuming your soul your energy in your consciousness, they can feed on that. And kind of they're like, vampire, kind of, but they can influence how your life goes in the choices you make. But they're not physically inside, you controlling you this just sounds like one of those things you blame when life doesn't work out. Why am I fifty years old and still demonic possessed human entity? I knew that was the answer. So these type entities can have greater capabilities in strength to accomplish more than your ordinary intelligent human ghost you because they're deemed so they can literally instead of like bumping into walls, they can make, you quit your job and beat up your wife and you like you said, you had a horrible life. Well, it wasn't really you. It's this demon podcast in. But here's the thing to keep in mind. They are just as dangerous as regular demons regular being demons possess people due to their possession of the soul wrong. They are big pussies. I think he's. Accents. They're trying to get possessed they can easily move objects hurt people in pets and oppress, and possess, the others around them. But it's like a, a black cloud over a person's life so far. We the first one we're talking we're talking about most of the time he formerly alive person that is expressing the their next phase of existence. Overtly to us. The next one is, is essentially, some sort of other organism that is becoming a almost like a symbiosis. Exactly. It's not it's not possessed. You you're not looking at them. You can't. Vomiting p soup and, and things that you think of, but you are it is draining your energy destroying. They latch onto your okay. Got it in the shooting. The third type is residual haunting. And this one a lot. I learned a lot about this, actually watching over the years dead file. Yeah. I mean, if you if you want proof of residual haunting get a black light and next time you're staying in a hotel just look around residual haunting. Jewel jackson. Pollock painting. Okay. But seriously on dead file safe talked about this. A lot dead files is a fantastic show. I don't know if you've ever watched it. It's interesting. So they have like a psychic let's be honest, you know if I've watched and they have a New York City retired detective. They both go to a location. Separately that has had quote unquote an experience. She goes in and does the normal, you know, I'm a psychic medium. He just looks at the history like a cop would if the murder something happened there. But he goes into. Oh. Does. Was the corpse fucked? I think that's how oh New York City. -tective. Bo. I was raped moded here. Do you think he was hungry while he was there to, you know what I'm gonna get me a sandwich? Hop in my car. Let's go from. I guess we were that graph thinks about. He looks research is the property. He researches what has happened there, and then a lotta times, they overlap, like, okay? Well, she says this is an older lady in Bubba von. He'll be like, oh, there's women lived here, and she died here, and it's just an interesting way to look at the things from a different perspective, say, is the most common type of reported phenomena around the world, and it's, it's really fascinating unexplained. And they say it may not be ghosts at all. It's not it's this is seen as an image or a scene, like a loop from a movie over. It's like a second carbon copy of an event this energy, especially it happens a lot with anger or huge outbursts. It's traveling to place and it's on a loop. It's over and over, but it's not until hunting is just this residual energy and the invent imprint itself on the atmosphere of a place and it doesn't cease to exist, but only changes form sometimes so this key. Going going, it might morph little bit as, as time goes by the energy may dissipate from one place in appear or exists in another or a change its form. But it's not intelligent. It's not evil. It's not anything that's actually out to hurt you per se. And they're often replayed astound noises that have no explanation. Think of footsteps, walking down phantom footsteps down a hallway and a lotta times. It's not just things you sense with your your basic. Outward senses. It's also have an emotional impact on your right? And they say cements feeling of dread called a psychic impression was left. And that's why these people that are susceptible to it. They say can feel it trauma emotions the folk these things, and they cause a lot of these, quote unquote haunting when truly it's just an energy, and they can, you can get rid of it. They say if this is something that's happened to you. There are ways to move it on our cleanse that if you are being affected by residual Hyundai. I like to tell people that lots of things all around our haunted, just burn more sage that smell the swell, that's because your family has owned that large sage plantation for a long time that you say, Jin twine, the twine industry. Really into big twine. That's who we are. All these empty shells from the sea. I know tell me gotta put your sage in it when you're done because that's another. If you say Britain kit, it comes with the shell and the best jokes are the ones you have to describe, because I figured you don't actually understand what it means to smudge a place. Our STAN, literally when you go downstairs to on our intake, we have smudging kit, sitting there have no doubt. I have no doubt. So my feather from an eagle one possible explanation. This could this could go along the lines for a lot of the different type of haunting we're talking about today. But I think it is especially poignant on the residual is. I read a really, really interesting article about this infra sound. So for if not familiar Brown zone is, is basically just sound that you, it's at a wavelength you can't really here, but it still can have an effect on you. And there are certain types of infra sound that are proven, scientifically to cause emotional responses, make people perceive things that aren't necessarily happening. Just use an example. There was a case of a, a haunting, but it was it was definitely thought to be one of these residual things where multiple people unrelated unbeknownst to each other would walk into this particular room in this particular place. Having overwhelming since of dread, think they heard certain things maybe even see something. And it was explained. They figured it out this, this one, this particular when they figured out there was a fan in the building that was like, you know, something in the motor was off or whatever that was spinning. And putting out a sound at such a such a decibel. Pull a wavelength that it just made people feel like crap. I it was they got that sense of dread and was soon as they turned it off poof haunting gone this, another thing where they've done with, you know, people that around power lines or power plants and stuff. It has same it has the same effect. And I also like on some of these shows where they've, they've talked about this the caught side. And they're like. Yup. See these power lines. They're, they're, they're putting all this EMF. It's making you feel like things are in also it's another thing EMF can make you see things because it causes like blips in your eyes. Right. So you'll see, like you think you saw someone walk by you. Well, that's terrifying. But all it really is, is a natural phenomenon natural because we've manmade it's. I used to work at a bar in Springfield, Noyo is at the top of the Hilton at the time now so win them and we used to go up on the roof every once in a while in, there are tons of tau satellites and radio frequencies in, you know, in an intense and stuff, south Houria. And it says up there like EMF like you can't be up here for very long or you can like hallucinate and stuff like that in warns you about that Stein can fry your brain a little bit. It explains a lot Brent. It explains does it does break time, John, I think need to go deep, fry my brain. But we come back more types, including type for my favorite scary movie I talked about earlier poltergeist. That's coming up on a stereo one. Your akiko.

He was the bad when the first one what a terrifying actually died like in the making of the third one. So they used the different person or whatever just a terrifying. Actor better Tom Skerritt movie, poltergeist, anything or throb gun top gun pulled guys threes, crap. It's terrible even even criti- Nelson in the rest of them. We're out on this. Two thousand. And if Craig t Nelson says, no. Then we're out. Well, I mean, I think that's a good kind of Reagan in that coaching weight. Live your life. That's true. Just, you know. You know what would what criteria do what, what Craig team Nelson do he was here right now? So polar guys are always ghosts. That's what it means. So noisy goes, they have commonly been blamed for any violent or destructive activity in a haunting. But in a poltergeist case, there can be a variety of things taking place when I think of this type of haunting, I don't think of the movie poltergeist, I think of silimar from Ghostbusters. Okay. Mischievous ghosts that it's not like it was a person. It's just this. That's it's funny 'cause there's like think of tapping noises knocking on walls sounds with no visible cause disturbance of a stationary like think of things flying off walls, you know, things falling down furniture, toppling over, or moving getting slime d-, or slamming getting slot. Yes, that's a level four free floating remeber, whatever the lights turning on enough fires breaking out being pushed or scratch leasing I registered Jamaica. This last week, and it's funny one night in two times during the night, the TV and lights came on a room and I wondered if maybe like the power blipped, you know, and it just like turned him on. But that's always a freaky thing when those in the TV in the lights are on. And I'm just the type ago. Oh, yeah. Whatever what the hell's going on. I don't know. Maybe go sleep sleep you walk out of your room and there's like there's somebody from the island, who's at least eighty years old. Get out on. UB into Lopez. Yeah. The ice machine. Where's that at again? So here's the kicker though, people who researched this stuff don't agree on what poltergeist really are. You know, there's a lot of conjecture some cases, the actively can be connected to ghosts in some cases. They say it isn't, and it certainly remains paranormal, you know, in nature, they say, but it's also because of its unexplained in very controversial in those circles, people a lot of them will say poltergeist were never ghost. They were never alive and other people go. That's not true. They work goes in. Really choose your own adventure on that one there, we're going through in defining all of these as separate entities. This is just a are human need to categorize things. Yeah. I certainly there are I have to imagine bleed through between the various types, and one could be a poltergeist. But it also could be a residual haunting. Or could it be both? Yes. You exactly. Can the energy from a poltergeist 'cause residual? Haunting. Or is it all bullshit paranormal, MD back to them, though? They say the currency where I get all of my, I don't use web MD I go to. That's exactly right. Because sometimes you have to perform surgery on a ghost. Where else he can learn footers, you got unicorns in your blood. Due cocaine about. But current theory, they say on a D behind this poltergeist like phenomena, is that the activity is caused by a person in the household known as the human agent. They hall is coming from inside the house. They say it's not actually ghost. The agent is usually an adolescent or teenage female usually and believe that she darting this is starting to really sound creepy. And she unconsciously manipulates physical objects in the household by psycho Caniggia's think PK or your PK e good thing. I brought my PK a meter right? We're getting our readings. Here we go. UK come through. Just masol. No, it didn't say that at all. I was holding it. You don't know what said I know exactly what it said. And it said that your national psycho can eases the power to things, but energy generated in the mine this type of energy remains unexplained, but even some mainstream scientists are they they've exported, we know that the government has we've talked about that think of the men who stare at goats and things like that they were wanting to there aren't mailing move things explored. But explore load Kyle's and make people die by you know, staring at they've explored their feelings government has exported. That's true. They go on to say paranoid, empty is unknown. Why this energy seems to appear in females around the age of puberty, but documentation of is existence is starting to appear as more and more case studies have become public. It seems that when. In the activity begins to manifest. The girl is usually in midst of some emotional, or sexual turmoil. Okay. The presence of the energy is almost always an unconscious. One is rare when any of the agents actually realized there, the source of the structure, Bob, I goes on to say that boys can be this, the 'cause it's a much more rare. It's usually girls in. It's usually something bad has happened to them when they explore these cases. And maybe it's the way that they manifest that out, you know, they put up walls, and then that's the way that they deal with it, sir. So as you sit here in front of the judge can you explain your behavior? I listen, judge. I know it looks bad. But the reality is that it was being spurred on by this girl and her and her development uncle. And it's just really it's a poltergeist. So really, it's Jean grey think Jean grey in x men because that's what's going on. It's one of those things where I don't like the. These things where everything's such supposition and the and they come in. And, and all of a sudden, it just gets that creep factor that one isn't nearly as bad as the one I've talked about before where they're like just because you think your relative rape you. Maybe it was an alien. And why don't you explore that before you tournament of the authorities? Not so much old lady would speaking that Leeson. I walked out on I felt meanwhile everyone else has their their books. Oh, yes. I know. I know that's actually similar right? Because none of this stuff is, is scientifically observable in repeatable and, and all that all the scientific method, but the sound like it is in this one. No. That's what I'm saying. Like why do we have to go down that path? Why couldn't it be? Like why do we have to say? Well, you know, it's, it's puberty level girls like, well, come on. Hold on, stop it. Hey, I don't know what happens down there. You know. Okay stomach. Evil lurks in the hearts of men and in the puberty of women. I'm just saying, like, hey, it's slime. It's not girls going through puberty. Hell, hath no fury, like Pugh Bessette woman scorn. So, you know, next one's Ostad one, John, we've talked about on this show. You think you're exhausted, think about being a girl going through puberty and manifesting horrible poltergeist in our own home. That's exhausting. More exhausting, though. Demonic huntings demons in the house demons. Possessing you is those. Oh, your head spinning around vomiting p soup, the crucifix turning upside down. You're speaking languages, that you didn't know like pig Latin or profanity, and sign language you have the strength though. So that grown men can't hold you down. It takes multiple. Admittedly. That would be less scary. You're watching. You're watching the movie about the ghost, and instead of the ghost, like starting to speak in tongues, all of a sudden, it just start signing at you. Holy cow. And I'm pretty sure that was rude, because you what more time. I wasn't watching. So, yes. That is demonic sounds just like think of Linda, Blair think of that the exorcist these things and. I don't know if you saw this, but the Catholic church is hiring. They have a one, a shortage, a shortage of exorcists, and more importantly, than that more importantly than that canneries recently said that he would love to be John Constantine again. He's actually said that the, the try to get it to go through, and it didn't go through. But I tell you what, the guy Matt, whatever his name is that place him in constant which is coming back is really good. And that guy has gone onto voice him. So, John, this is during the John wick three tour. He brought it back up. And he says that, that, that, you know, it could happen or whatever my point is that I really think the canneries is mankind savior. So I'm looking forward to it. Save you cattle Reeves. Well, I know mystical magical arts of the demonic. Then exactly roll off the time. So demonic huntings. I mean I it's Kali would loves it. You know, that is what now not the possession side. But if you look at the Ville, they said that they were haunted by eight a demon. If you watch all the conjuring movies that, that whole inter looping through the none of the none. Yeah. Alec is the name. Oh shit. I said, you said Valich. Don't forget those. Oh, how can you forgive someone actually said, on his Sarah nation recently that their daughter had been playing with the ouija board and spoke with those? Oh. So. That's frightening. It make sure you'd vitamin and have cookies as say they must have offered better cookies than we did. I know we have lots of booze though we must not be a drinker. I called it huge pussy. That's right. See the next one John one that we've also tackled shadow people shadow. Glowing eyes without the going is the man with the hat, shadow people. Another thing that lurks, shadow, people sleep paralysis. Yeah. They're kind of one in the same very rarely. Are there shadow people viewings visitations that aren't somehow tied to sleep there were those ones that supposedly they see in the forest and their, their own kind of entity? But the thing that interests me the most when we got into shadow people, they don't know what they want. But there seems to be a method to their madness and people see the same shapes and especially the man with the hat. It's almost like is it an alien entity is a demonic entity. Whatever it is, what are the rules? If you're a ghost what governs you like you're talking about. Do they follow the rules of they have our own constitution of the United States have ghosts? What is you're going to die, too? They set you down and give you a brief introduction to how you can haunt. Oh, absolutely your level, one flow, your free, roaming repeater, so you can do. This that and the other now no work on your tasks finished, some quests, do some side quests, you can level up and one day you might be a poltergeist it'd be on a later not-i'm actually, what they give you is the is the, the booklet the, the handbook for the recently, deceased. That's what they give you draw adore. Three times three times. I wanna see Beetlejuice is on Baradei now in suffer. Tony. I wanna see that end. And their sequels coming. It'd be made. And it it's, it's all of the original actors minus the dad, who got caught like literally, like dill, Diddley, children or something fuck. Yeah. Terrible douchebag. So anyway, shadow people's one that we've talked about a lot, and it's one that is not very well understood, but it is a phenomenon that happens all over the world, and that's a crazy thing that so many people have these these same entities. You know, it's like, the, the, the sleep guy, you know, the they say, you know, the, the people that in your dreams are always a face. You've seen yet there's the face that people see in their dream that isn't a real person, and people draw all over the world. In the same guy that Squatty headed balding weird looking guy. It's always has a ominous feeling when they see him, you know. Shadow, people also, if you're looking for an explanation that isn't paranormal they also say that, you know, like right before you sleep fall asleep, and I'm certainly experienced this, you fall into kind of, like that hip Nagai trance and, and. Trans was one of my favorite bands when I was no doubt. So when you're in that, that's like, when you, you think you're still awake. You hear something that didn't actually happen in the house, or, or things like that? And, and when folks go to explain shadow people often it can be tied to if it's not a demon it can be tied to that hypnotic trance where you think you're still awake, but you're, you're hallucinating. So it's funny. Produce lease is going to give me a wink his. I can fall asleep very fast not on purpose. But a lotta times I fall asleep sometimes within like thirty seconds. I'm out, we will go to bed, and we'll be talking. And we are having a conversation and I will fall asleep. And I will answer her in. It'll wake me up and I realized what I heard makes no fucking sense. I'll be like she'll be like, so did you go to the park to park is on fire? Saw three dogs. They all died. What, what? And I'll be like what, what, what the oh, I don't know where that comes from. But I think that ties in with that. It's like I don't know where like your subconscious fills in those gaps of producer, Lisa says, hey, do you think we should pour checks for dinner tomorrow? Responds I wanted to, and I hate you. A. Yeah. Pork chops. Sorry. I have my Freud dream again. The hip Nick. Trans can't be helped the gag not, but for real, though, like there's gotta be some and I'm sure that's not everything, but that does tie into a lot of these things. And if you don't realize that those things that can be real. We're talking to a guy we both know Neil who lives in Thailand. He's talking about how he said, sleeper alyssa's whole life now. He has never experienced anything, but the horror that is sleep paralysis. You know, over time you go, okay? Well, this is happening because your body secretes crap that tells you muscles and stuff that you are paralyzed. When your sleep and don't jump off the Clinton. It's happening in your dream, your mind wakes up in your body doesn't and then you gotta wait there until you fall back asleep, or your body. Finally goes oh, wait crap. Yeah. What a terrified. And that's and that's one of the problems ultimately with all of this is that except for in some cases where they, you know, you seen pictures that are supposedly a ghost in the background or something like that. But in most cases, the. The only reporting instruments that we recording instruments in reporting instruments we have our own senses. And those are probably the least accurate instruments in the entire world, like, but I know what I saw. Right. Well, in a lot of these things, unfortunately, we don't you know, in what for one reason, or another back to shadow people. You know what do they want? We don't know it's kind of like the men in black. If those, you know, are to be believed and stuff like that. They are seem to have a purpose where that purposes we don't know they wanna sell you insurance. And finally, we have elemental and this one, I think we'll probably be its own episode. One time, not gonna spend a ton of time on this. But elementaries are fairies elves gnomes nymphs, go force. We folk and gin. What was the we folks fourth? We folks fifth nymph. Goforth. Oh, yeah. I don't think that I'm not a I'm not a fantasy creature game. Though. Let me regale you could be elves gnomes nymphs. We folk and Jin. If you read fantasy books when you were kid, basically all of the non human entities. Right. A lot of these thought to originate with Celtic mythology. But some say it's Greek or Tony and cultural roots that gave ferries and a lot of these things, you know, the their start. It's all conjecture, but they've been around a long, none of it was mythology. If they're real that is true. Maybe maybe it's pathologies because they were around then, and then they went into hiding I really do like this doesn't really go to haunting or things that are happening today. But I do like I don't know if I believe it, but I enjoy the idea of so much of our mythology when it comes to other types of creatures. So a goblin of unicorn coming from some sort of place of, of truth like. Have you ever seen the movie night, nurses from jersey Noah with? With gladiator foots name wouldn't say this guy. But he's the one that made gladiator. Got a lot of flack, they did actually enjoy the movie, but you know it's pre flood and there are creatures that he's sorry on the boat. Like think about it, you know, let's goblins existed. They didn't make it onto the boat and poof gone out today. Yet dalley every day. Time. Gary our. One thing to do. You had one thing to do. The unicorns parked outside ready to go, where light, let's see here. Thirty days has September April June, and dammit. So they are generally almost all these are described in appearances as human like now, different sizes, but they look human, but they have magical powers and their origins are less clear in the folklore. I actually think we just explained it being variously dead or some form of demon or a species, completely independent of humans or even angels. I mean, they're, they're, they're all over the place. These beings are equally known as mischievous and tricksters, and they take on or move things refund. And here's what the to sum this up. They always say, never make a wish with genie and never works out or the devil fucking what, what, what nothing a monkey sitting around somewhere actually say that I have literally to hang up my microphone. Right here literally to monkey now isn't that second one, a big football. If it is a small big fund Representative. Oh. Guys got some splendid to Sola to me. Nepalese my ass. So anyway, Jen, you think of like those are your genie's your, we folk are your tiny elves your gnomes, your fairies, the water, folk, the nimzo all these kind of fall into elemental think of leprechauns, and anything that is done that I'm the Liepa. Damn Craig kinda one. Hey, you know, I'm, I'm no is Wayne's world in you. Thank you. It's a really good way to if you sell things to avoid returns sell them at the top of Everest. I mean, not many people are gonna come back and say, I want my money back. Well that is true, though. There are people have skilled five six seven times that just like flirting with death and be like fuck you go fuck yourself death that now we know all these sherpas are rich everyone, not a day goes by here about another sherpa by another man Gainey. Yeah. I know. Man sherpa. They make the world go round. This is not though. And this is something that we, we need to we, we've had, this is not a comprehensive list makes up the majority of the cases out there orbs, midst shadows center, they all usually fall, under one of these categories. But what are we missing? That's your homework this week. What else is out there? It can even fall into these categories. Let us know what have you seen? What have you heard of what is your favorite type of haunting the? Put away at such a butthole wits haunted with a lot. I'm sure yours is with a lot of dead things. So I believe see about. He's talking to you. Let us know what type of haunting or even a specific haunting you would like us to do, where can they tell us, John, I'd hop on Facebook and go to our Facebook discussion group hysteria nation just typing that little search bar staring. That is right. You can also go to Facebook dot com slash one pot. That is our normal page at hysteria. Anyone pod? If you want to tweet to us, we are on linked in. We are on red it.

What movie am I talking about? A percent in Nia, facebook group, and now onto this week's. Guest Sam Springer welcome everyone to the relax dog podcast I. Am here today with Sam and we're going to talk about Quincy. Yes. Prospect, into. Why or how way did Quincy and you connect? Okay well actually we gotTA. GotTa go back even further than probably good ten years prior to when I got. Quincy and land gone back and and. There was a TV show when I was growing up called coach here in the United States and. Craig T. Nelson was the coach. American football coach and a his assistant coach had a dog, and it was a basset hound in quincy and I loved. The character the assistant coach interacting with the dog and. I told my mom that day. That of that episode that I saw was my first dog. That I own as an adult will be a basset hound, and if it's a boy, I'm naming him quincy. So, that's kind of where the seed was planted because fast forward when I was twenty, two getting ready to turn twenty three. My Mom tricked me saying that at my brother's house that my brothers dogs head got stuck in the in the fence and I'm like well just with fence. It's chain link what? What is it that I need to do to do this and? she said we're just really worried. He's GonNa. He's going to get hurt I'm like no problem so I I worked in a factory and I was coming home and I walked to the back yard. And that's when my mom turned around and Quincy was with her and So, so I that was that was my dog. You know so. She had rescued him. There was The the animal shelter close by our home at A. She worked in the with the city government and the. The animal shelter had contacted her because she said if you ever get a full-blooded Basset Hound. That's what I WANNA. Know So. They contacted her and. They waited the seven days that was required, and then they adopted quincy for me so That's where we made our connection. not that DNA roughly how old quincy would have been with We took him to the vet shortly thereafter because he was in sort of rough shape he was, he was a little mediated, didn't. Hadn't eaten very extremely well, sue's kind of thin so we wanted to make sure he was good health wise other than that, and and so we took him, and the doctor, said he he was about a year and a half to two years old at the time we got him or car not, and it didn't have any other, the dogs or or other pets at the time. No, it was just my momma. May that live together I was justed had stopped going to college for a while and I was trying to Start working in the world saw still living at home, and so we hadn't had an a pet. sense. You know probably when I was in fifth or sixth grade, so had been four or five years the. or at least a little bit more than that shoot. I'm backdate myself about eight or nine years I guess since we'd had an an a pet, so we decided. She decided that she would allow me to have. A dog at her house, so. How the the few weeks and months of Quincy's arrival in the household. Oh. My you know honestly the. He spoke to me right away. He knew I was is owner. I guess I was his his lead dog, I guess because As soon as he came to me, I walked him home. From my brothers, we were only. Half a mile away, so we walked and he tried to sleep on on the couch with me like he that day. that we brought him home, so I think I. Think it. Honestly, it was one of those that we Kinda knew that we were each other's We're each other's bodies from the get-go and rather wasn't. There wasn't much. There wasn't much of a kind of feeling out process, either we just we just Kinda. Really just we knew we were. We were meant to be with each other. Ruin off that I'm in saw. Oh, outside dogs from the start, and that changed inside inside from the get go I personally I don't. I don't I don't have any use for dogs outside of them. Being my pet so personal. My personal feeling is my dog going to be an inside dog. He's GonNa Sleep on the couch. She's going to get on the furniture This is his house. You know and that's the way I treated it with Quincy was. This is my house, but it's yours, too. You know, and so we we. Never went into a cage when. I had to go to work I didn't have to worry about him. He he was a crazy dog, but I'd never had to worry about him in putting them in a in a cage because I thought he would hurt himself or get into something that would. Would would hurt him stuff. He chewed. He was young at that time. You know when I first got him so I knew there was gonna be a a some process Working through that, but other than that I I knew that he he, he understood everything was his I lived with him. You didn't live with me. Not much fun. Joel Austin No, no, honestly the funniest thing that I ever had with him. When it comes to destruction is an surprised the world out of me because he didn't actually eat it. He this is when we moved in when he came to live with me and my wife once we got married in a to our house. he, he would grab the bread. While you, he would take a loaf of bread. And, he had free rein through the house, so we have a spare room. He'd take the bread up into the spare room and hide it behind the door and then close the door. And so. He, So he didn't destroy and you know honestly there was. The bag wasn't even broke. That's how gently I think. He carried it. He Won. I He I'm Andy, he did it destroy a five five pound bag of sugar, white sugar that took a while to clean up, but he didn't just devour it as in eating it, he grabbed hold of it because he thought it was a toy and it broke open, and all the sudden stuff started flying everywhere Yeah, he. He provided me with a lot of good times. Interesting out at Diamond Molly sometimes would be sitting in the in the Landry and if she won that little bit extra attention. You mentioned the bread Joe go into the kitchen and do bicycle the same thing she'll. Not that she just doesn't count a surf normally, but if we leave something, go like the bread to class every now and then you. Pick it up and bring it back to us and then just put it down to say. Of this now gives me a little bit of attention and same thing night punch now. Ripping into it just yes, now you've got to know at least acknowledge that I've done the wrong thing. At least tell me no, because then you're giving me a little bit of attention. You'll pat me and there. We Go Clinton. From what I understand in though this was in the time before Before Internet cell phones smartphones extreme. I had a one of those old phones a you know. The first cell phones and so there wasn't Internet, so I did some research, and I found out that Bassett's normally have a little bit higher of separation anxiety, then I, from what I understand, most dogs have it, but for some reason basset hounds are at a at a level that it's more a little more hyperactive to where they absolutely think. You're never coming back so I think once. He was just taking it for. I mean to hide this for later I. Don't know why he didn't think we were coming back. He's the only dog there at that time. So I really don't know why it was on the Brett. But I maybe he was hiding it for later and I just. I looked at the counter and said I know. We had a loaf of another loaf of bread here. and. Looked around looked around and I walked upstairs, thinking why in the world of my coming upstairs? And I don't know why, but I walked into the spare room and I'm like. Quincy does like to hang out here because the sun will come in the window and he'll lay in the in the sun. He loved Landon the son and I'm like. I turn around and see the door shut and I'm like I know a and I'm talking, shut as in. All the way open, but leaning you know hitting the hitting the wall, so there's a little triangle corner. In the corner there and I said there's no way he did that. Because I always leave, it left a wide open and never was closed. And I sure enough. I pulled the doorway, a nurse, the bread in the corner, and so he had nosed, it open took the bread in late it down, and then the door shut back. It was it was I. I laughed very hard with. So we're about the. Way, you live there a rural semi, rural city or well. We live in a city that's about twelve thousand people so it's it's relatively small in the grand scheme of what you would think of a city, but it's it's bigger than the PL-. It's about six times bigger than the town that I grew up in so a which is where quincy started living with me, was in the town where I grew up in, and then we moved. To where we are now and Shoot. I want to say Quincy was about. Six years old when we moved here and we've been here fifteen and he he, he made it. Here in in Auburn with us, he made it. Honus say ten years. I think so I think he was almost seventeen years old when? when we had to put him down. I'm with the the transition The guessing, which out and about more when you're going for walks and things like that in more of a rural area, and then had to adapt to a little bit more city law for unfortunately or fortunately, no, because we lived in town at least even in the smaller towns, so it was an adjustment in the aspect, there was more traffic more people, but he still had that. that city feel that town feel least aware. He knew traffic and he knew you know how close cars could get. He'd be okay type thing he didn't have to. To kinda learn, the bigger city life, because it's not while it is six times bigger. It's still kind of a rural. Town city or a bigger rural. Town has A. Fiber works for fibre areas that you're talking. Oh, shoot! Yes, and he We we have a a cemetery. It sounds Kinda Morbid boat. it's it's all enclosed, so we can actually take our dogs, and you know respectfully, but at least give them some area to run on because we don't have a lot of open, just open space. That's fenced him because. especially with with Basset Hounds they take off. You, know they get a cent. They take off which there are plenty of good stories about Quincy taking off on me, but the. I can share that in a little bit. There's a there's A. There's a funny one that deals with were the town that we live in this House that we live in now But the but the cemetery he really liked going the center not not that he would hike his leg or do anything disrespectful. Sniffen, and so he would just walk up and down those aisles just apart because there are visitor, so there's different sense that come with each of those have those stones and just really loved the cemetery. COULD BE I yeah different sort of connection there as well yeah yeah. You can spend. That He. Did the occasional running off. Yes. We have a a a latching and gate system that Kinda it's kind of. It gets caught. Sometimes it will match just right. It won't shut, so you think you've got it shut, but it won't latch all the way and Quincy was one of those that he wouldn't try to push doors open, but if he was sniffing and his head hit it at open. EAT GOPHER walk. And There was one night, and so we always made sure we we would tell our guests, and and even ourselves make sure you get the gate shut. Just make sure you get the gate. And this before we added are our Second Basset Hound. So Quincy on was the only one I had about it over, and it was a an evening that we we had some beverages and we were. You know kind of just joyous and stuff My Buddy didn't get gate latch. So we went. You know probably a good thirty minutes before we realize. The gate was open so. Okay, here I am couple too many so I'm not gonNA drive, so I've got to walk and find him. That's fine while I. Always put him on a chain like a his collar was a chain. And a he'd have the a dog tags. The jingled so I could hear him anywhere. And his favorite spot was the back side the the street behind us. So, I immediately went to that street and I'm walking down the IT's eleven thirty twelve o'clock in a night so you know. On the twelve hour clock bottle about midnight and So I don't WanNa Yell saw my eight. Clan. Sake and I can hear his G. is is college England. So I stop. Looking around. Is Jingle stopped. So I start walking a little bit more y'all or you know yelling, use air quotes with that yelling. Quincy Quincy and I can hear the jingle again, so I stopped walking in and stops, and I'm like where the world is as dog. And I just happened to turn around. He was following me. On the street and he's just looking at me. Like well I heard you call me, what do you mean? So. It, was he? He was and I couldn't do it. I couldn't be mad at that. As soon as I realized he had walked by we as like. Come on, let's go home and he followed me right right in tow I. It's it was amazing. It was one of the funniest times I've had as a dog owner and I've had some pretty funny dimes. Funny things that have happened as as dog owner like my dog now one of my basset. Hound has a facebook page I mean I I. Love My dog, so but quincy that that episode with Quincy was probably the funniest one that I've had. So decides to what costing back win to your original. Luck off these and when you saw the episode until you bay with Quincy. I think you could draw any parallels with the TV Quincy to yours. Yet well, yes, because The the Basset Hound on the show whenever the? Coach would leave the room and it was funny. The reason why it caught me as I love the the legs along ears, but Luther which was the coach of the assistant coach in the show would always pull them around in a red wagon. And so you'd only see about this. The various Chin up most of the time from Quincy in the in the show, but luther would leave the room in quincy would be in by himself in the room by himself, and you'd hear brewer. And then you'd walk in or they. The character walk back into the room and the room would be trashed and there's quincy back in back in his in his. Wagon. Mike Quincy was very similar in the aspect of that's where the broken bag of sugar you know he. He was running he whenever I'd come. we lived in a in a mobile home which you walk in about halfway into the into the the mobile home and he's got eighty feet. From one end to another and he would take, he would run five six times at full speed, just bellary Moore back and forth as he ran off esteem like he was so happy to see me. Oh, he demolished the bag of sugar. While I was gone at work, so I can see that parallel that they did it very well. They had they had Bassett demeanor down very well. quincy have any favorite toys and you know He. He was not a toy dog. I have a couple of pictures where he had one of the rope bones that we bought him in the past and things like that, but that wasn't even he wasn't playing with it when I took those pictures. Just, to play with it, we had already had introduced are second bass on Quincy was about. I WANNA. Say seven years old or so when we introduced Wrigley our second basset. Hound will Wrigley loved toys, so he would go around and grab every could so I have pictures of Quincy with the toys that we bought him a few years earlier. In his mouth simply because he didn't look Wrigley to have him you, he was us. He was funny in that aspect. He wasn't being mean about it. He was just like no. You're not gonNA have this rope bone. This one's mine you know, and then after Wrigley owes like okay, I don't get. He would lay back down and walk away from it with no interest. Just Kinda do to kind of save. This is mine. This is my house. Understand that these toys R. Mine, even though you're playing with them but at the same time he he would play with Wrigley, so and Wrigley was just one of those, and I know him introducing a second one, but the Quincy was the only dog that Wrigley loved. So, that's why I brought up Wrigley in that aspect is quincy was. There were dogs that. Re like I said Wrigley didn't get along with any. My inlaws have dogs that hated Wrigley. Quincy. Quincy was like. The just that that dog everybody loved cats weren't even afraid of him and Quincy wasn't matic cats, he. He's just like. Hey, you know what you do your thing. I'M GONNA. Do my thing, north and light back so I'm guessing now and I wish us when when Wrigley was introduced into the household. Well, we we kind of did that slowly. we brought him. Home Wrigley was another rescue in the aspect that he was a foster dog and and we had to rescue. We had to rescue him we. We rescued him through adoption. and. So we brought Quincy, We brought quincy outside to him to Wrigley so he could at least meet him. There and Quincy was a literally sniff them. Licked his forehead turned around and watch. It was kind of one of those that we. We assumed that if he didn't growl and Bark Adam and try to you know hurt him. That I think he was going to be okay with them and and Quincy. Never they never actually had any fights. It was it was? It was always kind of well. And I I had I had a a son a young son. They were basically a my son was born. July, ninth and I got Quincy on July twenty fifth. So. They were kind of born into my family. Are about the same time so whence? He kind of knew how to be gentle with young. Younger beings so I mean he he would allow you utilize. Allow my son to Yank his ears, and and things like that. We only had one time ever that we We had any issue and it was because I surprised I was holding my son. I was surprised when I sat down next to him, and he snapped at me and we had that was the only time we had ever enter any issue and after that he realized well. You know a little boy. He's holding his pretty important and from that day on. Never had any issue whatsoever with Quincy Ma Really Good Day Him with a double whammy. Hey, I've got a new four legged friend and right leg at the house right. Happening Oh. Yeah, and he he was, he was great at taking taking things in stride. I think he's send. If if I was okay with it and I think that was the connection that we had. We had that connection right at the beginning. That kind of he trusted that. If I was okay with it, he was going to be okay with two. Very light back did I have any we'd habits or anything like that at all for that, you would think for. Weird habits. I could say he. He was prankster. I really can't tell you that there was a couple of different times. And the one the one that really stands out other than the bread We. I was single. Still Work, you know I was still in that process of still living at home with my mom and everything, but he would occasionally he would need to go outside so and at this At where we lived, we had to take him out and so I had to get dressed and take him out on a leash and everything so when he woke me up, I knew. He had to go so I think he realized that every time that he did that I. got up snips just as quickly as possible and He did at one one. Late night, it was probably two o'clock in the morning and he woke me up. Sixty good pounds. He had his front paws on my chest, and his nose was right close to my nose and he he didn't growl. He didn't wine. He snored so I hear. And you know it's happening right in front of my face I wake up. And I'm like. Wow, and he did it again. I'm like okay. He's got to go to the bathroom so I. Put on a sweat shirt. Put on you know. START, go go out to the living room to put my shoes on. Normally, he followed right behind me. I'm looking I'm like. He's not here, so I walked back into my room and he had decided that was when he was going to roll around in my bed. He just wanted me to move. He didn't WanNa go outside. He realized that every time that I got on my chest and snored at me I would get up and take him out while he wanted me out of the way because he wanted to roll around bet. And so I I looked at him Oh no, and he he he kind of looked at me like Oh, in trouble I just lay back down. It was two o'clock in the morning. I was ready for bed. Sleeping already so but the other one time, and this is why I think he's a prankster. I totally think he did all this on on purpose. He never would sleep under my blanket. He would always be overtop. One time. He decided he wanted to be under under the blanket well. He laid on it and it Kinda wrapped under him and I'm like. And, he was already snoring. So I'm like well. Just cover up and. I woke up about I. Don't know how much later after into the night I woke up and he had wrapped himself like a Burrito in the blanket and I had had. I had just a little. Corner of the blanket over me. I'm lacking and he's again. Is knows sticking out the end and he snoring. He's, but he's storing because he's sleeping he just. Watch he's. got a different blanket because he would. He was a he was a funny. Funny Dog I think. That was his unusual I've never met a dog that had kind of a personality of being so playful, but kind of like almost the equivalent of dry humor because he would do it at the most inopportune times like you wouldn't think he was doing he was doing. It was just being funny. Or? Maybe I'm over thinking I don't know I I truly think that dogs have personalities in the aspect of having sense of humors too because. I i. just think they have to. Why not do that at all, or at least that with the interpretation of humor, and they just think right? Yeah I'm just I'm just doing it in a right right. It's funny to us. And, so you gotta think that you know they're playing so whether or not. You? Know I guess if they they play and they yelled out. They understand that that's not them playing anymore. I guess I don't know but I. Just Quincy was so funny when it came to that aspect of. A. He knew when to I'd be talking to him or something and he. He didn't like touch too much. which was kind of kind of what I wanted? I didn't want a dog that had to be a lapdog, but would be once in a while I, guess you know to be able to come over. See me hang out and would rather sit next to me then on top of. And That was exactly what Quincy was he You knew when he was on you like if he came up to you on the couch and like I said. You know with all my dogs. It's their house, too, so they. They get they get. A, free reign of being on the on the couches to and when Quincy would come up and put his front paws on your leg. You knew because he was a little heavier. He was a lot. He was very compact for his size, but yet you knew you okay. Go out and most of the time. That's what it was. He was just come to let you know I need to go. Okay. Let's go most of the time though he'd sit right next to you and that's that's what I love about it. Some people have concerns with cy breeds like Bassett's. Because all of lodge ease it. Quincy ever have any sort like medical issues is or otherwise. The medical issue here in into and I've found it with basset hounds, because Wrigley are are Basset Hound. We actually had to put down before we did Quincy because. they have long long spines, and their legs are short their masses so heavy that they they have the tendency capability of rupturing discs in their back. Easier so if they if they jump just right even I mean it happens in Schnauzers or Weiner dogs, or whatever as well, but but Bassett's kind of the same build, but just in the bigger size, obviously and That's what Iran in with with the first two. Is Quincy hurt his back once? And he learned from now Wrigley heard it. Head had hurt his back to where it was Kinda hurt him. But he? He assumes it started to feel good. He'd be back to his normal. All over the place. But Quincy once he hurt his back, and he got to feel better. He went into slow motion and I did not hate it at all because he he taught me patience. When it comes to we have we have an upstairs is where our bedroom is in, and when whenever I would, quincy would go to bed at the same time we did. We normally would just let him sleep downstairs and them. Whenever he was ready, he'd come up if he'd go to bed. I'd always follow him up and he took his time. And in what he taught me patience because I never ever said. Come on, let's go because I knew that. They have bad backs. Because of you know being in a hurry or or moving to too fast when they're not ready to or whatever, so he taught me that and Clark. Who is my my current male? He's an eighty pound Basset Hound, so he's even heavier, and he's slower and more methodical and I looked at MSN Quincy. taught me to be patient for you, Clark. That's what he did. I truly feel that the all the things interconnect and Quincy taking his time, you know for the last seven years of his life helped me understand patience of making sure. The dog can take his time going upstairs, and so Clark has has that. Of. Quincy to thank I guess for that lesson for me to have learned rather than going come Clark. Let's hurry up and go upstairs. You know I can take your time. I know you'll get up eventually and I'm right behind you. Simony subtle things that I do teach us that. We don't really think about kill light. Up. And It's unbelievable that every one of my basset hounds that I've had I can see some aspect of quincy in each of them, and the thing is all three of them at all three of them other than you know. Why have had four total? But all three had significant time with Quincy so I think they learn those things in those times that they had with him and. I honestly think that Quincy is the reason why I've owned for you. Know a absolutely because I I, can he he. He bread that love of that style of dog. gather messy. Yeah, they slobber There that's nothing that some paper towel or a junk towel can can clean up you know. Wipe off his face or wipe off her face. because I have a male female now and it's just. They're they're so loving. That's why I love them and in Quincy, set the bar so high, but made it possible for me to say okay. That's all that in Quincy one when he was no. Clark sage or whatever so Clarksburg Quincy! Started a trend in my family that. he actually. Got a Basset Hound because of Quincy one of my best friends from from my childhood He had a Basset Hound I. mean the and it was because they saw what type of dog Quincy was. That did you become a member of any sort of like bass, clubs or anything like that for the quincy sort of just hang with any bring anyone and everyone. Quincy hung out with every single animal that he. All of my dogs other than Quincy Bark at people, walking by Quincy would just sit there like. If you didn't know. Quincy was standing at the door or like on the on the fence line. We have a picket fence right next to the sidewalk. You might be scared because you didn't hear him. You like him and go like what is that? And then you realize it's just quincy standing there. Sniffen, so he, didn't he? We didn't. We didn't have an see. That's the drawback of being in such a small town. In the aspect of there's not a lot of people that have basset hounds, nearby and so it and this was. facebook. Groups didn't really exist where you can kind of coordinate meetings or anything, or if they did, I didn't pay attention to him until you know well past Well past that time I. I mean they they exist now, but my two dogs shoot. They get along with every single dog to they just bark at him though. So Quincy, wasn't he? The very first time he ever got out. He ended up befriending another stray dog. Walhi was out and they ended up at some ladies real estate. Office Like ten blocks away. and. If, there's any north a block little into I guess. Maybe a dog park was in mind. I guess I don't know, but yeah. The she called because we again we had. We had his his rabies shots tag and tag and I had my cell phone number on it and she called me. She said I think your dog. And I said it is a basset. Hound, he said her, the lady was like well. We've got a Basset Hound in some other family. I don't have another dog. I said I. I have the Basset Hound. I said the tag should say Quincy on it. And she said Yep that's him. She said he came wondering up with this other dog I'm like well. You're going to I, said. I can come get my dog, but but yeah ten blocks away. He ended up just wandering and meandering back and forth, and and ended up that the that's the crazy thing about Bassett's is when they get out. You don't know which way the sent they grabbed took them. You know and the and the crazy thing about that is. They can be on the one sentence go. Oh, that's better, SA-, and go into totally completely different way and I've lucked out in the aspect. I have not lost a dog yet. I know that I know. I know that solid. You shouldn't ever lose. Don't well. Basset hounds are a little bit a bit. Little bit crazy. They they have a very. High sense of smell and they, they have the crazy. I'm going that way. I'm going that way on any sense get. Did you utilize any sort of? Training videos fees if you so. You don't i. didn't you know and and the thing is? I didn't even think about it on my current to. THOUGHT WOW! It's really probably too late now. They're. They're seven years old. Well, well I guess I mean in the aspect of having them just trained from the get go, you know. They're seven years old I. I've actually considered that because these two are a little crazier than the other two but they they're really good dogs and so I. Haven't I haven't actually done it, but I have considered. Rakai. Hollis stuff that you can probably look as far as getting the dogs to use a noses. Writing and all sorts of fun activities. You can do with that. Yeah I Like, I said I I've I've considered a lot lately because. They've got now we've got. Four boys here and ranging from thirteen years old to five. And they don't always get the gate shut so. Luckily, we normally find them and catch them before they get two blocks away. The dogs, but but. I've given it a thought because of them, not being able to Gate shut all the time. That was a quincy. A grooming was enjoy having a bath. Let's say it this way. He didn't like getting into the TUB. He didn't like getting into the TUB, but he loved the warm water especially on his back after he's had a walk or something. You know that that back. It was sore for him the rest of his life and he probably. Probably hurt his back I'd been married maybe two or three years. and we're getting rid so for about for about. Eight years in his life of his sixteen and a half years He had a bad back and it was sore. If you picked him up the wrong way, you know and just tweaked it in the wrong wrong way. You let you know hurt. You would nip at Ya but he he'd let you know, and so you know you really gotta especially with Basset Hounds and the guests. Those longer dogs have longer trucks. You gotTA. Make sure you support that back right near the back haunches. When you're picking them up, because if you don't then you're putting that on wanted pressure on that back and occasionally I would not get it in the right spot, or maybe I twisted him just right whenever as picking up to put him in the in the car because we. We take our dogs. We take our dogs to the in laws, so quincy would always make the trip. He loved riding in cars. That was one thing that he loved going on just. county road rides so. The open county all open The open back roads he he loved just riding, and it used normally a buddy of mine and me that would go to chase storms or whatever you know, just you know whatever? You know. We were doing i. don't even really. JUST RANDOM! Hey, we want to pass some time with chase. This storm in Quincy would ride shotgun right in the middle between us. Just cruise along and he. He loved watching watching the world. habitable. Oh Yeah, yeah. He was a special dog and and. Even even my buddy and my mom and My nephew, who was really really close to. We still talk about Quincy and. He's been gone for about I. Think three years with this past. May I mean I remember the date because. He was He was around before My wife US around before I met my son, my son was born, but I didn't meet him until he was about a month old and so like he was around when those monumental things happened. And he was more than just a dog. or a pet? You've I. He was he was my buddy. He was my number. One Guy, you know. We hung out There were days that you know and I'm not be moaning. The fact I would have anything to do on a on a Friday night or whatever when I'd hang out. Watch TV or we would you know sit out on the patio together? You know he was. He was my buddy. Absolutely like sign many of them are. Sorry Yeah, yeah! No, yeah, I it to this day. the I'll have I'll have dreams that include quincy and I think that's. The, the the cosmic way of of basically told me that he's still around his. He's there with me. And you know that that never will change and so it and it's an and their subtle occurrences in in my in my dreams, it's not the he's the main character. Of My dream, but he's laying on a dog bed in the corner and I know that's Quincy. You know He had one little white SPA. He was a tri-colored hone. He had one little white spot on his back right in the middle of his back down near his tail in the middle of the black I. so like that was there was one time that I lost him or that he got now, and I couldn't find him, so I had to end up calling the police to let them know to be on the lookout for him, and they said the have any identifying marks I said he's got one white spot in the middle of the black for nearest tail. So I mean I knew I've known in my dreams that that's quincy because of the white spot, right on the tail. End Excel police. No, honestly like about ten minutes later somebody called because they found him, and and they found his in quincy didn't run, so if you walked up to him, he was going to. He was going to just come see. He's GonNa Sniffed Foot and then you could look as his tag in that then they called so. We know. That's right. He didn't have any any time in the clink. I'll for more guests if you have to complete the sentence, I can't believe my dog bite. Oh well I can't believe. My dog ate my snickerdoodles and there's a story buying ness are sorry. SNICKERDOODLES. Oh Yes snickerdoodles. There sugar cookie that is. Ben Rolled and cinnamon and sugar. Okay, and then baked so then the cinnamon and sugar bakes into their one of my favorite cookies and I had brought a dozen home from my mom's house. And it was one quincy was still kind of. Kind of He didn't like jumping up too much, but he would jump up if he if he knew there was some food well, it was in a plastic handle bag on the on the table, and evidently was too close. He grabbed that bad boy and ripped that. Open any my snickerdoodles. Happy. He ate cookies. And? You'll affects from from that. You know honestly I was waiting for him to to vomit or something new not a bit. Quincy looked at me and while I. Am what of it? I didn't I didn't run into anything other than Mike contempt for him eating my cookies. He was he was I. It's amazing that you can have. A love for an animal not not that impossible. It's just that and you can. You can totally know that they. They love you back. Quincy Quincy taught me a lot of things growing up, and that's what what I miss greatest about is we We learn from one another. Patience? I learnt patience from from Quincy and I think he learned that the. That, unconditional love and I. I think he knew that I cared about him. And I cared about my son, so it was kind of the transferred. If you love him. I love him too, and that that's that takes you a long ways in the world, and I've kind of learned that through the through the process of of growing older with with with him around, and then you know, since then is young. If somebody finds some greatness in. Somebody you love than. You know if you think if I love you and you love them that much. I can love them to and Quincy's done that. He's got me through some some hard times with with that kind of thought process I know it's Kinda deep on. Maybe. Maybe even some people think that's silly, but. I think dogs are are a little bit more receptive than Than what a LOT OF PEOPLE WANNA! Give them credit for. Absolutely I. Definitely think Ed a lot more people should take a lead from the sentiments that you just said. If there's a that doesn't need to be. A specific reason for love, but if another being. Shows that then then follow and ninety be much bit applies. Oh, absolutely now, that's not to say I. Don't think there's a lot of good things happening in this world, but They're still things that we need to learn you know and you know. Why can't we get that off of of a a dog? while they are an animal. They're still part of our family. We should. We should be able to learn from from anybody or any being or anything Life lessons so i. wholeheartedly think that dogs are are here for that reason as well absolutely well. Thank you again very much for sharing the no problem see. Yeah it. It's not often. That I get to sit and talk for an hour about him, and it's it's. It's great because. I, honestly, if you. If you had more questions I'd be able to talk longer, but I. I I think you probably got a lot more going on on a Saturday than listening to to to talk about Quincy but Yeah I appreciate. You. Let me come on and talk about him. It's always nice to be able to recall great friend, and that's exactly what he was on our show. The Pleasures Martin I'm sure, is there. Anything that you want to.

Episode #309 Book Club

"On this episode we discuss Book Club. The chilling tale of four people getting together in the same space less than six feet apart. Who'll hey everyone? Welcome to the Flop House. I'm Dan McCoy. I'm Stuart Wellington and I'm Elliot Kaelin and Dan. I hate to be to fall into my stereotype as Jewish one. But why is this show different from all other shows? Well for one thing. We're all more than six feet apart. Meaning that we're all their respective apartments. Yes the covert nineteen colloquially named as the corona virus has a sitter scattered to the winds Normally it was just Elliott scattered them. That's pretty much my reaction to it. Yeah well we are doing our best to try to keep up with what the government tell us to do We're setting an example for the young people out there by keeping distance from each other so as to not create become disease vectors Dannon Stewart or feeling a little under the weather. And I'm I'm I've just dealing with an overdose of California Sunshine. You know there's just too much too much bright sun that I can only escape by staying in my house twenty three hours a day. It only occasionally venturing outside to peer into the light like a mole man or a vampire that cut tricked into escaping his coffin. Too early so this episode might be a little strange because we're all in three different locations but podcast is ever done this before right now in the history of podcasting and my and my levels are all crazy so this might be the weirdest sounding Stewart ever here. Hopefully it's extra loud. I haven't the easiest of all three of us because I'm not as sick as Stewart nor do I have to. Shoulder have the easiest of most people in the country. No I know we weren't. I was comparing to Youtube. Was Okay okay. Let's get into how privileged I am Which is but all right. Don't rub it in Dan. Dan is recognizing his privileged in a very positive way. Well I mean what am I supposed to just caught my lucky stars? I Guess Yeah you're Purple Moon. Green clovers too. So this is a weird way. So so Dan what we do on this podcast for anyone who's who's stuck in home looking for entertainment and they stumbled on on the picture of US and they're like well. I like chicken legs and beer and remote controls all check out. What do what do we do on this? Podcast this podcast where we watch a bad movie and we talk about it now. You were very interested we. We had a short vogue for theme months. And you're GonNa do what you call mom you area where we palms let me. Mommy was was for me. I want to do with the month of because let's face it we're DUDES WE WATCH A. Lotta Dude movies which a Lotta not to not to Gender stereotype there but we watch a lot of traditionally dude movies harm movies action movies. SCI FI action. Har- HORROR SCI FI action. Fantasy horror horror. Fantasy SCI FI. Action and action horror SCI FI fantasy action and we don't there's a whole world of movies out there we don't really touch upon usually that. I would call generically movies. My mom watches and so I was so I wanted to see book club and Palms and it would double as also. What is going on with Diane Keaton? These days month because Diane Keaton who is I don't. I don't think I'm going to have any opposition on this national treasure and one of the most charismatic actresses in probably the history motion pictures delightful instantly likable. Where can wear the hell out of a high collar and a hat? Oh she hurt her style. I mean there's a reason that the anti hall look took off like a wildfire this movie where They're a spoiler alert. Diane Keaton is on a large inflatable swan and a pool and Audrey said why. Is She wearing a hat? I'm like because she's Diane Keaton. Also it's nighttime huge. There's a part where her her girlfriends are. Trying to help redress for date and and Jane Fonda is like open up your collar. Show off the girls a little. And she's wearing like a turtleneck underneath the shirt. That's the way the girls are getting anywhere near being shown awesome. No but she looks great but so yeah no. She looks tremendous his. She's also a working actor and so for years now she's been doing movies like this or something's gotTa give where I'm like like Diane. Keaton like what happened to the Diane Keaton? Ribs you know or the Diane Keaton of The we allen movies that she made like. There's there's part of me the light Diane Keaton. You're better than this. This is going to double as Diane Keaton. You're better than this month but mostly it was movies that my mom watches and unfortunately. I don't know that we're GONNA get to palms Because there's so much else going on right now but he's GonNa skip right to a wild poems the TV show. We're part of the national conversation while inevitably inevitably when things start going south. Socially people start out the Oliver Stone television short-lived series of wild palm. I will say Elliott my. I know for fact that my parents saw club and their reaction was. You know like look. We know it's But you're you're elderly. Parents had a good time. Yes I mean this thing is this is. This is a comfort food movie. Maybe at this time In in American history we only little comfort food but a guys I wanted to talk about. We're this movie goes wrong because it is so much right wants number one. It brings together an amazing cast. This is Danke Jane Fonda Candice. Bergen Mary Steenburgen they're all great And also you got Don Johnson and Wallace Shawn and Richard Dreyfuss and Ed Begley. All-star older star cast and Alicia Silverstone in as far as I know unheralded performance in a supporting role but and so it gets so obviously gets that right by getting it. Are you saying like a little guy? Lawsuit didn't come out and like tell everybody the leash yourself shown was showing at the beginning of Frankenstein. A man comes out and he was watch out this movie. Maybe to a horrifying for you. I wish that he had gone out and said it may shock you to find that. Alicia Silverstone is in this film in a very small role will also. Are you saying that Andy Garcia and Craig t Nelson are chopped liver my friend. I'm saying that Dan I'm saying that there are so many stars in this movie that the heavens were dark and I can't even remember all of them. So there's a lot of stars in the movie to it taps into the national zeitgeist because it's all about the fifty shades of grey craze which was only seven years old when this movie came out and so the only way they could have fixed that as if the movie at the beginning there. Was this montage of things that happened in the year. Twenty eleven that they were just like that just to set the scene. But here's what this movie does wrong now. Just spoiler alert. I'm going to do a general thesis statement about the film and then we'll get into the the summary of it this. Mary is essentially a Sitcom episode that has been expanded to the length of a feature film and that Saddam is called golden girls and this is essentially a backdoor attempt. And I. I don't mean back in a sexual way. Even though this is a heavily fifty shades of grey movie because as we'll get into it totally just it just eliminates the promise of a of a sexually charged elder movie. But it's like if they made a golden girls movie and they forgot a very valuable ingredient. Because let's take a look at who the characters are in this one. Okay this is a story about a book club. That's been meeting frequent a meeting regularly since nineteen seventy four Receipts to prove it right. Yes because we're introduced to them with the most incredibly fake photoshop photo. I think I've ever seen in the history of film featuring young Jane Fonda Young Candice. Bergen Young Mary Steenburgen and young Danke. And we'll talk about their characters in a moment Jane Fonda. She's just WANNA say. There's a worse photoshop job to come. But which one is it? Is it the junior photo junior? Yes we're it was going to be a plot point that he was faking these vacation. I it looks. There's a part where later on candace. Bergen is looking at her ex-husband. They'd be juniors vacation photos and it looks like he and his fiancee went to the mall and stood in front of a green screen alleged. Carl and had like a fake fo- photo made so Jane Fonda She's Your Classic Lifelong Bachelorette refuses to settle DOWN LOVES TO HAVE SEX AND OWNS. A successful hotel. She's obviously the Rue mcclanahan in this scenario. She's she's the blanche she is very sexually active. Does NOT WANNA be tied down by a man and also has kinda similar hair to blanche. Then you've got Sharon that's Candice Bergen. She's a federal judge and she is very ultra proper. And she's very repressed. She hasn't even dated a man let alone had sex and she divorced. Her ex husband. Had Vaguely Junior. This is clearly the who she chose to divorce who she chose to divorce. Yeah this is clearly the Dorothy the author you know just kind of like the one who sneers that. Everybody else looks down on them. Here's where the problem gets in. You Got Mary. Steenburgen as Carol. Who's a chef who married Craig Nelson and kind of? She's just a kind of a lady who is upset that she and her husband to aren't intimate very often. And you've got Diane Keaton. Who is a woman with two grown daughters? Who are treating her as if she is more fragile than she is because of her age. You've got to rose's right here you got to Betty White's there is nary a Sofia to be found in the film. They're missing an Estelle Getty and this throws off the very perfect and very essential chemistry of the golden girls experiment where you had won the sex pot to the goof. Three the uptight one end for the sarcastic. Mom of the uptight one guys. This movie needs an older old woman. Even grumpy. Old Men had a grumpy Olbermann. In the form of Burgess Meredith. This movie you've got to you've got to roses and no. Sofia's and of the roses stinky and it's by far the better rose They don't give the roses as much comedic lead to do. As the Rosen golden girls. Golden Girls is also great. That's the difference. Sells the gold rose. Great and club is kind of like It's just kind of running through the motions. But let's explain okay so you've got the so you've got these for indelible kind of feel like they're a little bit closer to the the four women in the sex sex in the city or sex and the city series called the sexy city. It's called sex even sex and the city because there's an anchor sand isn't there you have it that stands for Awhi- sexy sexy the city sex in the city. Let's look at how sex and the city sex and the city guys sex in the city. It's an the city where Dan. Okay so how does it map on these characters onto the sex in the city characters? Let's see so there's Charlotte okay. She's like one of them okay. She's like candace Bergen. Because she's the uptight one and she's a lawyer and Canterbury and his federal judge there's Miranda okay she's like one of them is Miranda the Kim Cottrell Jane Fonda Kim Cottrell. There's court me Courtney you're thinking of the friends. That's Courtney Cox name. Yeah I mean it is moving Diane. Keaton is playing Diane which death. That was very funny. I discovered that it is sex and the city but there is no anchor sand. It's written out so I totally misremembered that I'm Sarah. I WANNA apologize to everyone for that for get tweeted that Dan. After soon that you've been watching a some kind of like bootleg ripoff called sex and the city they're very generic about what city it is because they don't WanNa get sued but it probably is Cincinnati I hear yet no no. It's Cleveland where it's hot Dan W Karppinen Cincinnati is yeah. It's very woke up in Cincinnati. Did there was somebody at the time. It was like look up and Cincinnati. What is this science fiction show room Typo and the old TV guy? I'M GONNA assume it's called woke up in Cincinnati and it's about somebody who fell asleep on a bus now they gotta get back. Well I guess I'll I don't need to watch the show because I'm not interested in that premise. And he missed out on one of the classic sitcoms of the Nineteen Seventies. And he's never going to get to see it because of the music rights at least not in a very cut up form. So yeah this is the show because they can't play those scenes that have the old music in them. Yeah so guys so you got these four characters their sex in the city golden girls and they each have their story the very much like a Sitcom they each have their story that they're going to go through but they're all friends and they still meet every week for Title Card Book Club now. I want to mention before we get into the plot that the soundtrack to this movie is bonkers. Like I think Austin powers more subtle soundtrack than this one like. If you just listen to the music you'd be like what kind of crazy cartoon hijinks are going on in this movie. The score you're more than this by Roxy Music. No no no. I'm not talking about the pop song soundtracks the because they also those are. There's a part of the end where they play a meatloaf song. Everybody acts as if it's the craziest thing they've ever heard like Okay so These these women when they get together. You better leave. They make lots of sex puns. Oh boy the innuendos are flying wild The of just speaking of they've just read the book wild and Jane Fonda did not like it. They mentioned that. The theme of this year's Book Club is bestsellers that were made into movies. Which is kind of a silly theme for club because they probably would have read. These books already But Jane Fonda like hey ladies. Here's the book read fifty shades of Grey. And they're like Mel. Come on come on and she goes. Hey started out. And Kim Spring says we started this to stimulate our minds and Giovanni goes. I hear it's quite stimulating. That's the level of dialogue. Great for me Stewart. The person watching the movie because I know those stories so I know what they're in for. Yeah that was. The funny thing was watching it. Having seen having seen all three movies straight PODCASTS. There were times where I'm like. So how are they going to deal with the part where he they think he's died? Helicopter crash is that something that they're going to bring up like. Are they going to bring up the whole subplot with the guy who wants revenge? They don't can I? Just I know that we've a puzzle up before getting into the plot but can I just say you got to make the rules. Look it's corona virus time. We make the rules. Things are crazy. Just say what you want. Say Do what you WANNA do. Stop A friend addams family. Well I just WANNA I wanNA talk about how linked this movie is to fifty shades of Grey. Because like all right. I don't want to deny at the time there were all these articles about. How like you know like Older women or women who like maybe sort of settled into a married life where like rediscovering like Sex or whatever because of fifty shades of grey or whatnot. Although I believe there was a run at the hardware store is on nylon rope because so many women were begging to be tied up. Well that's one of the things though like I feel like all those stories were more about. How like women who? Maybe were from an earlier generation where they didn't like talk so much about their needs Were like connecting with like. They could be honest about Kinky or not or inject new elements into their sex life which is not what this boras new elements like four hundred. This movie is much more like it's just like these women are like. Oh yes sex tape. That was one of the things I feel like. This movie makes a promise early on that we are going to see some older women getting invested in bpm play and that never happens. I'm like this movie promised me implicitly that I was GonNa see Diane Keaton in a leather mask and that never happened. I was buried disappointed. No never crop. It's this like when does this movie about you know? Yeah but also I think that it's I. I personally would have preferred that. The movie just make up like an erotic book bestseller rather than tying it so specifically to fifty shades of Grey because the movie feels like this giant commercial for a lot of things. There are things if it was like a commercial for but earplugs. Well do you think of this movie been made like twenty years earlier it would have been a movie club and they were watching basic instinct or something. Yes yes. They don't just read the first book they like. Throughout the course of the movie they read the entire fifty shades trilogy and like I mean maybe it's just because I've picked up fifty shades of grey and read some of it and know how horribly written it is but I would prefer they just like you know like good good on you. Go read some erotica if you want to but like God damn there's there's much better Roddick A to be had. They never make any jokes about the writing in the book which surprised me that. I wonder if it's because they don't want to alienate or life books. I don't know they don't want to alienate the people seeing this movie. Who were like? Oh I read those books. Those were good books that I really love them a lot. It reminds me of a there was a time. When Oprah's book club they pay one hundred years of solitude and then they were picking into some other book and I remember for some reason he was on at work like seeing a little of the episode. And she's like okay now. I know the last book was a little difficult for some people and women in the audience were nodding and I was like one Hundred Years. Old Is Beautiful Book like. I love it. I love that book and it's ended. I remember at the time being a well know at the time being a young callow jerk and being like. That's not a difficult book like it's a beautiful book and it had to be pointed out to me by someone else like not everybody is like a reader and I don't mean that in a condescending way not everybody is just going to pick up Gabriel Garcia Marquez. And be like. Oh Yeah I really get so for a lot of people that probably was a much more challenging than there used to and they might be the kind of people who when they read fifty shades of grey. They're not like oh. This is so horribly written they might be like at. This isn't the best written book but I'm enjoying it so like I wanna see it from the point of view of people who. Maybe don't have such snobbish standards as me right and I also want to say like we are aware that we are all Middle aged men and so approaching middle age speaking as a as such You know we can't necessarily speak to older women's desires and hearts no. I think we all come to this from a very from a place of like older women. Sex positivity no definitely okay so getting into the plot basically Diane Keaton. She's has to go visit her kids. They all live in La her. I think her kids live in Arizona. And she's going to go visit them and she has a meet cute on an airplane with Andy Garcia and flirting and then she accidentally grabs his. Dick for reasons. I couldn't quite understand he. Also Eddie Garcia a from seen one till the end of the seems drunk the whole accent that I couldn't quite pinpoint. I thought he might have been Greek. I'm not sure I I will say having watched this movie with Audrey. She was like showing the screen. She did not like Andy Garcia because she felt like he was a cocky guy who is constantly like sort of assuming that you. Diane Keaton could drop everything at the at any moment to like. Come see him in another city like there's a later point where he sort of ignores her fears. I mean in the interest of trying to push past them but like in a way that Audrey really didn't respond to and I I I get. I think he's being presented as like this romantic type. That may have been better in previous age. Where he's leaving he can. He can still drive himself at night. He's he's the most Christian grey like figuring this and that he is a millionaire. Who has nobody else? In his life and can indulge just whatever desires or fantasies he has and who also very early on has a sense of possession and ownership over Diane Keaton and this is not explored because he's just a fantasy figure of a rich handsome man who is available in shows interest in her. There's he has a certain amount of Charm because he's eighty Garcia but like he also. I think he's being presented as a figure that will push Diane Keaton past her neuroses but just from audience perspective watching it. She was like well. He's a little too controlling and thinks he knows better. I mean later he hits on her. She doesn't know he's a pilot and she's flying back home and a flight attendant calls for up and it's like oh I need some information from you. What's your name and your phone number. What's your address? And what nights are you free? And then the pilot eighty or see a walks out. And he's like I'll take it from here and the flight attendant. Has this look on her face. Like Eh glad I got to be part of this Luna Frank and that they really would have on their face was just like don't involve your in your stocking and then in alarm goes off in the cockpit and he refuses to answer it until Diane Keaton agrees to go on a date with him and it's supposed to be cute but it's like this is scary and if he's set off the alarm on purpose as like a part of the prank which. I ASSUME HE DID. It's like that's worse like he's he's a. He's playing mind games with her in in a movie. That was more keyed into fifty shades of grey. That would be like acknowledged as creepy said. It's supposed to be just cute here. You know one way. Meanwhile Mary steenburgen Craig t Nelson. Her husband has just not been showing interest in the bedroom. And we see her she. They go on their anniversary. Dinner and crazy Nelson gets her environmental gift. Two sets of earplugs so that she can watch. Tv shows while he's sleeping and his snoring. We'll keep him up. We'll keep her up and she gets him dance lessons because her annual charity dinner is coming up and it's going to be a talent show and she wants to dance. Neither of them are happy with the gifts. She starts reading the book. While watering a plan and we see the moisture meter on the plant go too high and it was like come on everybody. Look what are we doing here? Like what kind of Benny Hill level I mean? I expected him to cut to shot of like the Great British Baking. Show and have Mary Berry. Be like that's a soggy bottom. There's a lot of those types of funds to later on creating really gets into his old motorcycle and there's so many lines about like. Oh Yeah I got a Luba up so I can milder and I can climb on top of a rider all night and she looks at camera. Basically what about me like that? It's it's like sexy. Andy CAPP IS. I want to get on my motorcycle and squirt out Kiessling. Can't I just can't wait to insert my Dick into this motorcycle and pleasure it all night long. I found some of that funny Out Because the gag itself is funny but because like all of the women are in a room and they know the problem that the two of them have been having. So they're all kind of like reacting to it and sort of trying to stifle their reactions and this is going to be a running theme in the movie the materials bad but the actors are also good. They managed to sell a surprising amount of. I mean it's kind of like sex in the city that said he was so full of dengue pines by but like the performance in a good performers. You know there's a there's a line that our old boss at the daily show. Tim Carnevale used to do which was his version of sex and the city about old women it would be. Meanwhile on the other side of town estill was having some assisted living of her own. Kind of what this movie is. Is that line that joke in like a pumped into a whole movie. All the women they're reacting super cartoonish. Read it like they're Tech. Savory wolves their eyes are popping out of their heads. The turning into steam whistles and the soundtrack like I said the score is so cartoony in my notes. I wrote that it's like the whole movie is swing band in a car. Chase like that's what it sounds like. At Times Jane Fonda is old Bo- Arthur played by Don Johnson. He shows up and he just will not leave her alone and takes her out for ice cream. Talks about how his wife left him and they ended up waiting in fountain for a Lucky Penny because she made a bad wish on it. It's all so adorable. And a security officer on a segway comes by and takes a picture of them and there are a couple of security officer or cop moments movie and I just kept imagining. The auditions were Improv actor. After improv actor came into like audition for this role and they'd be like. Oh yeah yeah well we shoot it. You'll make it into a bigger role with Improv. And that doesn't happen. I will say bad regarding Johnson. I know that this is. I mean maybe swing. His name is a pun for peanuts. That's the other thing is like it's like. The movie is so full of Puns. That even the actor's name in the credits as a metaphor bleeds into reality in the mouth of madness that way. Maybe this is just turnabout is fair. Play because like a women so often get underwritten roles in this Sort of movie. But I could not tell you anything. About what the character Don Johnson was supposed to be other than he likes Jane Fonda. His personality was he wears a kind of a funny hat. He wears a funny hat. He used to be a radio. Dj and he likes Jane Fonda. And that is the and I don't know what he does for business now he had to find to La for business for maybe a radio convention but he also seems to be genuinely rich like everybody in the movie is now. I haven't watched all the special features on the Bloomberg Com. Assuming there was a scene. That's on the cutting room floor. Where Don Johnson's character is talking to Jane Fonda attorneys like? Oh you're in a book club. What are you reading right now? And she shows him and it like cuts to his eyeballs like a movie and his blood runs call because it makes them think that's his daughter in those movies. That's probably exactly. What do you think that a family that he was like? I'm making a fifty shades movie too and it's family stuff we can bond over this. That's a really good. Don Johnson. Impress me charts and we were GonNA part of this area so Donald Johnson. Yeah we'll make in one of these fifty shades just like you wear like daughter. Like Daddy. Yeah you Daddy. Fifty shades movie. And she's like. Please stop saying that. Call Me Daddy. More meanwhile candid camera. She's cyber stalking her ex husband. Who has his Kamerun? Sorry Kansas Birth. Been waiting for that. Fuck you you know what's going to happen and you got me candace Bergen She is cyber stalking corrects husband. And she finds these what we mentioned. Forward the worst photoshopped pictures. Maybe in the history of photoshop away. I think they're deliberately bad-looking because they're so silly they have to be like it literally was like a photo booth at a wedding like that's what it looks like. Now I want to object to this a scene because like all right so as a L. Also she gets caught by law clerks. She's doing this at work and anyway but Dan as a previously unattached man this Originally confused me a lot. This is before this before you were turned into a human centipede. Now that you're attached. I'm attached That I can still talk with my mouth sounded. Someone's but but I assume you're the front but I didn't realize either middle or you the back I'm talking into the but the person in front is saying what I'm saying with my voice like a kind of gratitude we pull the hair and make the guy moves sort of situation and I think that's the first time someone's compared human senator ready to shore I mean he doesn't even the middle or are you in the back. What I'm in the The second best position which is the middle now. I wonder if not at all not at all sir not back is the little bit of freedom and then you could just poop there you really into the air. But you've got intend April's poop there's bless poop maybe by the time no dad once. You're eating one person's poop you might as well throw the person's pimple on the plate I mean I don't I don't think we. I don't think there's any contests the front is the best because he words you have somebody in your ass all day long a second best because you can prove whenever you want and you get to eat someone's ass and the second episode so I I. I'm wondering if what if this movie came out a couple years earlier it was called movie club. And it's these four women who watch human centipede and they're like I guess this is what people are doing now. And they make themselves into human centipede reinvigorates their their lives more. What I wanted to say was there was a period when I was using dating apps so this bumble thing confused me for a long time because all right first off earlier she goes on bumble to find this stuff. We should it was. It wasn't clear that that fumble is dating APP for bees right. Could that's why you were dating so many B. is for a while I'm speaking earlier or clumsy people. Yeah let's fumble. That's our fumble. Is the dating APP for people? I'd see realm forty year old virgin who just keep having clumsy accidents that get in the way of their love life. Yeah so I. It was not grumble the dating APP for people with Brandy. Rooney's now Dan. You were saying bumble. Here's a here's a look behind the curtain. I like to talk until Dan irritated that. He just starts checking his phone when he picks up his phone. I know it's time to let him talk so Dan Yeah. It was confusing to me for a moment because it looked like she was doing this on her desktop. And I'm like okay. Well first off bubbles an APP so that's weird but then later on it becomes clear that she is using a tablet to do this but then secondly little red glad that plot hole got covered up with cement. The that's how my mom does most of her competing. Yeah so but secondly she learns that her husband is dating the much younger woman by the bumble things like like. Oh matched and I'm like what you can't see other people's matches on bumble but it turns out that I guess it's an ad for bumble. That's like Oh these. Two people matched you could to like suggest the question. Why is her husband showing up for her? In this ad I mean she was Google Liam right before but like he's not going to be a key word like advertisement for bowl. She has learned that her husband is dating because her son calls her to announce his engagement any mentioned that so she goes on bumble and his confronted with this ad and I have to assume that as in the song there's always something there to remind her bom Bom Bom Bom Bom and in this case it's that she's just have to ask existence where she's confronted at every moment with evidence of her ex-husband's life. I assume that as a judge she deals a lot of cases that are generally related. Her ex-husband which again is a conflict of interest. She should be recusing herself from those cases. But it's I think a movie logic Dan. We're like someone will turn on the radio and there's a news report about what's whatever's going on that's important to the plot so but you're right. This ad comes up that's like bumble health. This older man to get with a much younger woman isn't bumble right for you. But she gets caught by her clerk and she doesn't want to get involved. She doesn't want to dipper toe. In the radical revolutionary world of Internet. Dating which Al Al mentioned again is how I met my wife fifteen years ago but this is a scary for her. Is that candace? Bergen character is hungry. She needs a slice or something. I think she needs a slice of Dr Richard. I haven't I haven't thought about slicing applying pointing sixty nine year old George. We'll get to that. We'll get to that because she hasn't put herself out there yet but she has anyway. I don't want to spoil it for everybody. I know everybody's waiting for Jewish show. I mentioned Richard Drivers in the beginning. People were like who does rich Dreyfuss play Richard Dreyfuss I mean. He hasn't been on on movie screens that much for a while. I mean what was the last time for a lot of people still Max? Bickford or KIP endorphins. And he doesn't want a new character to to rip indoor Dorf. I'm sorry please remember my anthropology minor at school that it was croup. Indoor who discovered that tribe it turns out he has been working much more than you would have thought like. He's been in movies over the past few years but they just haven't been movies. That people have seen you played thanos employees dirks now that was so he was two different characters in avengers. Gi So it was a it. Was A dead ringers type scenario. I guess the last thing I think I remember seeing him in was that movie that we watched was what was when he was a lesser instead. What Piranha Three D no? He's not in that right. He's at the beginning. He gets eaten by Piranhas drives. I forgot about that but we did a movie for Flop House that he was in years ago but uh so Diane. Keaton is visiting her daughters again. They they're treating her. They're really bathing her. Mary steenburgen calls. This relationship is was the one that made my wife the most angry like the tween daughters. I N keep me to treat her like such a weird child the whole time. And it's like dude we're at fucking PUKE BEPPO man. Just let me take fucking phone. Call like she leaves. She leaves the restaurant to take his fucking phone call and both of them leave the table. And it's like you can't leave your fucking idiot husbands at Buca di Beppo all this shit we left. That's expensive over your children to be her. Children are horrible meddlers but Diane. Keaton also treats it like this. Is the sitcoms plot because for reasons that you know. Maybe if I'm you know maybe if I was in older mother of adult children I would think differently but I'm like why are you just talking to your children about what's going on in your life? You feel the need for the whole movie to hide. You're a damage as as the son of two parents who often don't tell me things about their personal lives that you'd think would be useful for me to know I can. I can speak to that. Which is part. But she's not just like not thinking about it. She's actively hiding it away like she makes up a lie to run off with this guy and then doesn't answer her phone as they get increasingly worried about her hanging. You've got to hide your level. Damn sorry yelled hey for that just for that but it was really route is like I dream of a day when like a Honky Drunk Arizonan Pilot X. Dad away it'll has just got to make sure he gets out there. Also your parents are still married. I believe you're she's chill is very cool new. Very cool mom. So steam version calls an emergency book club. This this is the part. I didn't believe she goes. I have to call an emergency book clubs so we can figure out if sex banking thing because this book has got me all turned inside out you have to fly back now and she crawls evidence lesson from their very stern dance teacher and he is not enjoying it So Candice Bergen. Meanwhile she goes to the vet with her cat. The doctor refers to it as a lethargic pussy and reliable. Yeah Yeah we get it okay She has an elderly cat and We already mentioned that. Andy Garcia hits on Diane Keaton playing her fears of flying and being a creepy stalker. Dude they have another book club scene. And didn't Diane. Keaton is like Only that's later on. Sorry I have to go into my notes here that we're twenty seven minutes into the movie and that was when Danielle quit watching when my wife walked away and said I can't take anymore. This movie hoping for them to spend more time talking about the books right Yo. I will say that the movie is one of the Times of the movie. Works better than others is when they're all together at Book Club because then you get to see these great actors like interacting I mean other than like there was some parts where like I was annoyed at the movies. Like script because it was just like let's reiterate exactly what's going on so the slowest members of the audience will understand. Exactly what's happening? But but the interplay was good and a lot of the scenes. Just feel like delivery systems for these women to walk from one well appointed snack spread to the next. I mean this is. This is in that very in that. Very Nancy. Meyer vein of like It's a certain sort of pornography about how beautiful kitchens and ease of having everything that you want at your fingertips at all times. I actually have a voice memo from Audrey about this book club that I feel like this is the time to play. So I'm going to just Pump up my volume on this and here we go now all right so that was the wine club. You said more of a wine club. I mean most clubs. It feels like to me are excuses to drink with your friends but like structured setting. I mean just a way to force you to get together with your friends regularly so you don't lose track of them right. It's not gonNA shitty gas. We've been tuned forever anyway. Now we're going to enter into what I call the dating sequence where everyone goes on dates. Diane Keaton goes on a date with her pilot tells him the story of her first kiss which also involves a man grab shoe and she's a teenager and the teacher grabbing her head and then planting a kiss on her which she calls very romantic but which felt like again like a story whereas like that's not an okay story. That's that sounds creepy to. She tells that story when they're out at dinner at a table. That is very far away from the edge of this outdoor seating area. I've been to outdoor restaurants. They kind of pack them in there so they can maximize space but no dice at this. What a movie camera equipment and stuff. Probably the others have goaded candice Bergen into online dating. She finally joined. She sets up a profile with a picture of her with a face mask on for some reason. Like one of those nighttime face masks for some reason. She can't figure out how to operate the APP so she takes an accidental picture L. VERSUS. They're just going to. I'm going to skip ahead a little bit. And just say that she goes on this. Let's well I'll just say very briefly mercy merchants. She tries to seduce creighton ellison with her old waitress uniform. She looks amazing and he is so much more interested in his motorcycle. He does not interested in it. They try to buy Candice. Bergen a sexy dress. She seems to be unable to put dresses on. She ran over her clothes. Which makes no sense to me like or maybe it's just a very elaborate kind of spanks undergarment that she's wearing that. Looks like a full suit of clothes under her dress. And and this is important for later. Jane Fonda Slips Mary Steenburgen in her hands not to not use gives her a Viagra pill to slip to her husband later because as she says. A lumberjack is happiest when he has would tangle with that. Is that true lumberjacks. If there's lumberjacks listening tell us your happiest when you have would because to me. It seems like that's your job. Maybe you like it. Maybe you don't but Right in that. I feel like if there's no would means no work you know. I assume I'm not necessarily at my happiest when I'm at work. Elliot very good point very good point in fact I would say you're at your unhappiest which would make it difficult if say someone was trying to supervise you and get you to do some work but I cutts so but let's skip ahead to where the date. This is a real slice of Dr. She's got Stewart. Why don't you set the scene for this? I know you're raring to talk about Richard Drivers's indelible conic persona as George Okay. So they're like in a restaurant and George George seems like a normal guy like he doesn't seem like you know he has Has a brooks brothers shirt on and yeah. It's a nice little date you know. They have a really pleasant first date. That for some reason it's written so that candace. Bergen character thinks this is a disaster at every moment. It's like they're both nervous. They get over it. They talk with ease and calm by the end of it. They kiss she kisses him and then they have sex in the back of her car and the lesson she gets from that is I. Do Not WanNa see this man effort again and I'm just GonNa date other people now which makes no sense to me. I don't know what happens there like I. I wonder if there will be cut from the. I have no idea the whole movie like whenever they went back to candace Bergen like. Why don't you dating Richard Dreyfuss Tell You why? Because she goes back home and she's got more messages in the first one we see is from. You guessed it Wally Shawn. Oh some man candy was. Somebody's not having dinner with Andre Tonight because he's taken as Bergen out for a day and it was the moment I saw Wallace John. I was like thank you movie. Yes this is exactly what I needed right. Now is to know that a little bit of this movie's budget went to paying Wallace Shawn's that he could write like the most scathing like unpleasant like wonderful. Play about how. Modern Society is built on the back of exploited workers and bloodshed. It makes me very happy. You know that Book Club has has contributed to that in some way by employing him die. Keaton she runs off from her family. She makes an excuse and says that her house was robbed and she has to leave but she doesn't fly home. She flies to her pilot's house and this way I realized that he's probably a millionaire because he has an enormous house and he takes her rioted some plain thing right the invented some kinda engine that has less drag or something. I don't know it's like a Tuscan villa. Yeah it's Nice I mean Tuscany. But it's the style it's an Arizona Villa and he takes her in a little prop plane and she's like no no no. I'm scared but she takes. He takes her in it. And this is when it's the most like fifty shades of grey movie because the whole scene is just just crane. Just just helicopter shots of Arizona Desert and then shots of them in the cockpit going like wow look at that. Whoa like and the whole point of the movie is over. Life is wonderful if you're rich and have your own plan and can fly around whenever you want so very fifty shades of grey in that particular and she says hey. My marriage actually died along. I forgot to mention. She's a widower Danke and her husband died last year. She was a winning justice right. This is a two correction show for me. This is Great Dan. You're on top of the world has been turned topsy. Turvy what if I can? I defend myself. Say That I was saying she's a widow could be could be no. Caesar right history okay. Abraham Lincoln lived and the dinosaurs still around trump. Didn't win all right. Let's go now guys in details. They never did rewrite history. Did they know occasional mysteries? Yeah let's say wasn't really a duck blur no. Was it like a hurricane though Berg specifically okay so she says I'm marriage died long before my husband did which is a cruel thing to say. Oh let's get back to candace Bergen because while waiting for her date with Wallace Shawn which I have to assume is like how many that's everybody's dream is to have a one on one time with Wallace Shawn. Where's it is a lovable guy you know and I think this movie missed a beat by not having a Alicia Silverstone interact with them in a clueless reunion. That would have been wonderful. Yeah that would have been great. While she's waiting for him. She runs into her ex husband and his much younger fiance because they live nearby. I the whole thing. I was so confused by her relationship with her family members. A son who she seems to have almost no relationship with doesn't show up in the movie until the very end. Well this show up. Looks like the guy from love on a leash when he manned. Yeah Awesome Dog. Also this scene. Bergen Candice Bergen seems to be learning for the first time that her ex and her son or having a joint engagement party. And I'm like okay even if you're not talking to your ex like you should this from your son. Probably that he's having an engagement party. I mean it seems like she has really cut herself off in a big way from her family her son calls and says he's getting engaged and she seems to be surprised even that he's in a relationship like it really feels like she is your dog during the day. Mom I love is on a leash now. I want to say that we thought that the much younger girlfriend was real scene stealer She had a really funny reaction in a later scene that I I WANNA highlight. But also the way she's just overly friendly to everyone and does like a little bent over hug as she's meeting them. It was pretty funny. I thought so you say this is Believe this is mercy. Monroe is her name and a lot of stuff but mostly you know one shots on TV. Yeah apparently coordinator Kapadia. She was in a movie that was a parody of movies that I've never heard of before but anyway so the Shia so walsh shows up and candice. Bergen was like this is weird while Sean Ed. Begley junior and Cheryl the fiancee's proceed to have a very pleasant normal conversation. There's nothing weird about it. No one is awkward even when Wall. Sean mentions that he is a DJ in addition to being a doctor. He has a great line where he's like. I'm Dr Dan you can just call me Dan. That's my name or something like that. It's he introduced himself as a doctor or doctor. Derrick he's like I'm Doctor Derrick. Well you can just call me Derek. Which is a funny me. But the everything seems to be going super pleasantly but was she decides is too embarrassing deactivate. My bumba count. Decided to whatever's going on downstairs. GotTa shut it down. I think the implication here is that Ed Begley Junior. Her ex husband shows up with this. Like hot young fiance and charms. Even better like every me. You don't have to sell me. Can't tell Candice Bergen that. She should be lucky to be with Wallace shot. She should be brilliant. Wallace Shawn Hilarious. What are the pillars of the New York theater community in the passion you now? That's wild orchid or wild orca to situation nine and a half weeks or something. Yeah she was ready to be real shades of gray thing and she suddenly be just be a creature of pure bure list. Okay Jane Fonda she has a date with Arthur. Don Johnson She manages to take a moment. To Debunk Popular Reading of a Robert Frost Poem. And then they fall asleep together with her tickling her arm and then listening to a full album. All the way through the fantasy is that they shared each other on the Robert Frost. Thing me early on. There's a like joke about how You know someone's Vagina is not getting attention. And they say they reference Cave of Forgotten Dreams. The hurts as like WHOA WEIRD LINE. It's a fairly obscure it's not. I mean Verner. Herzog's is much better now than it was but that's not one of his better known movies instant movie of his and this is the most widely pitched as you say. Sitcom comedy rats they should have. The reference should have been grizzly. Man Then is what you're saying. I mean are real grizzly man. I wish and that would lead to a hilarious waxing. Seen sure I wish they'd gone further with that. Then all I can think of is a scene. Where they're they've picked like a Kelvin. No book for the Bulk Lemon. They're like I'll tell you. My life has a non-existent night about it people China's an invisible city. I thought you were GONNA. If on a winter's night driver s I thought you were going to go with more hurts. They're going to be like little needs. Some six of you know what I mean. That's that's I could use a raffle God down here. Where's the MIC at the end of the world? Let's move on counters at my end of the world. Now I'm trying to think of it now I trying to think about the verner hurt South. They tell you even start out small. I'd take that right now. But okay so they she she leaves it and Daikin's kids call the police to track her down. They track her phone to the pilots house where she falls off the aforementioned inflatable swan into the pool. It's it's also charming as as I mentioned on it. The previous podcast. Andy Garcia falls in the pool and my first thought is. Oh no his phone. Mary steenburgen finally puts that Viagra Eighteen El-Shams beer and he is not happy about it as I wouldn't be also if my wife did that to me now. I don't like being drugged. They get pulled over on the way home and the lady cop makes him stand up and then she lets him go so that they can go have sex but they do not have sex instead you wake whereas like you'll have a good night and she goes into Mary Steenburgen and you have a good night on weeks Adam. You know. It's a good performance. I guess but they have an argument where which was kind of strangely real argument to me. It felt we're creating Nelson's like ever since I've retired. Kinda don't know who I am and I need to figure out who I am my relationship to my life and my own body and this is an you. Putting pressure on me is not helping. And then he walks away and bumps his dick into the wall and goes out there. Having a serious are even throughout the entire argument. You can see this huge chances. His pants which I am ashamed to be about. I did find that funny. The contrast between the two I I WANNA say like maybe we can rate the movies Story lines at the end but this was my personal favorite. The storyline the Mary Steenburgen. Craig t Nelson One because it felt like it had a certain amount of actual emotional honesty like I had an idea of who both of the characters Involved were supposed to be and what their feelings were You know am I like Mary. Steenburgen a lot. Anyway then you get a sense of what? He was back in downstairs. Yeah A lot. That's there's a reason. He's coached owner through fruits and Khakis I mean it's not to poltergeists too much but it's here what's incredible talk about Mr incredible. There you go okay great And that's the Craig t Nelson Bit that. T. stands for tent in his page Turner. That hooch on that is he. Maybe I don't remember. Is He. Action Jackson I mean he is now. Now that's jeopardy Jack Flash. Although again this Jack Flash is jumping. Okay Stuart. Dan both looking up. Craig t Nelson's credits on their phone. Yeah Craig. Nelson was in action Jackson. But Jackson was Carl weathers. Oh so bad guy in that too. I'm sorry stir that jets out to Craig Nelson. He did do the voice of a monster with a huge Boehner in Flesh Gordon. What so he's coming back to his coming back to his roots that was early in his career. Hold on let me double check that to make sure. I'm not Mr Memory Just Google Criti- Nelson Flesh Yeah Flesh Gordon. Eighteen as the monster. There's this kind of stop motion animation monster with the peanuts need as the voice of it so you know what he saw when they said Hey. Are you ashamed about doing this role he was like? I'm going back to my roots. And they said please no more Venus buttons so anyway but so. They're they're upset and she says okay. Fine you don't have to dance with me at the charity dinner and Don Keane says to sustain Andy Garcia. I have too many responsibilities with my kids. I can't be in a relationship with you and and Jane Fonda is like this is too much pressure. Me and Arthur. I can't believe I fell asleep next to a man I've had sex with lots of I've never slept next to one. I can't handle this and as mentioned candice. Bergen his like while John. Too Overpowering I. I'm I'm a beast when I'm around him I just can't control myself. I become an animal so I've got to stop doing this. So the book club. Everyone's at their act to needier. And I Keating says you know what I'm moving to Arizona not for the pilot but to be babied by my kids. This is going to be my last Book Club. And it's like Oh no you can't break the Book Club you've been meeting for forty some years ever since he first read fear of flying which is ironic because she does have a fear of flying. But that's not really what the book fear of flying I think like did she pick it up thinking like it was a self help thing they sit around and drink together and they kinda snipe at each other about their life problems and then they're you know what they say. We have to read book three. That's the only way we can get out of this. And they tried together and my note here says they all go forward with their lonely lives. Arthur he confronts Jane Fonda and he says Hey I love you and she just kind of brush off gives them the cold shoulder and Candice Bergen. She goes to her son slash husbands to different people. They're not the same person. This is not that kind of movie. Her SON AND PARTY THEIR ENGAGEMENT POOL PARTY AND AT ONE POINT. She gives a speech. And you're like are we about to hear. Give a speech about a character. We don't know it all and she gives us speech while standing next to a surfboard. That has this is art. Written on it was very confusing. I was meant to be an example of the kind of crazy things that this young woman is bringing into her ex husband's life. Yeah I kind of like the speech because I think it it has like you know four movie that is a Sitcom e it has like some General J- genuine Wisdom and heartfelt content and most speeches like this in movies. End Up being more about the person who's giving them than the people she supposed to be giving the speech about but in like a really obvious way and this play the thing I think it went down the line kind of nicely where it is like. Clearly this is influenced by like the lessons. She has learned over the movie but she is still making it about them rather than herself. Now let's give me the gist of the speech. I know she talks about. How love is the thing you have to create or something. What was it something that you know is given meaning only by the People? Who are meeting. It's like it takes bravery. I don't know I just remember. I don't remember it's I just remember my. He's thinking okay. I thought maybe he memento did. I don't know I was when I first saw her digging her glass to make a speech. I was like uh-huh I know what happens when someone in my family gets up to make an unannounced speech. This is going to be bad. It's time for the for the for the grievances to be aired but it was a nice speech all about love. The next afternoon Jane Fonda is depressed. She couldn't even get up and get dressed and the other book club. I guess they couldn't get her on her phone so they they're book clubs sense was tingling and they knew that their friend was in trouble they just show up and she is like I said no to Arthur and now I feel terrible. And they're like you have to go after him run to the airport. They go his latest leaving in an hour. Go get him. It's like she's never going to make it to the airport in an hour. That's crazy. He's already past the security gate and the like rush to the airport thing doesn't have the same weight it used to because like you can text them on the fucking while he's like on the plane you can facetime with a handsome security but like. I just didn't have the tech. This didn't have the tent stakes that the run to the airport seen in little Italy had which is saved quite a lot but then she owns a hotel. She can just fly the fucking New York and see him there. There's a couple of things I want to say about this scene number one. I feel like illuminates one of the big problems with the movie which is like it comes to life more when they're all together and they're together very rarely and this is one of the few times they're together not just for book club. They're like doing a thing which is supporting Jane Fonda number to help her get dressed in something sexy everything she owns sexy and then they put her in kind of like the kind of standard blue dress that would imagine a waitress in the seventies wearing in like Like Alice doesn't live here anymore. It's not that this is not the the most provocative thing that you could throw honor again. I want this to be about the erotic awakening of these four women. Disappointing me that it's not a Dan you saw. I also think that like so throughout the movie I feel like Jane Fonda Destroy Line gets shortchanged the most I kinda like yes and I'm also sort of threat. The movie baffled. Okay what is her deal. She keeps everyone keeps talking about how she's like afraid of commitment. But there's like it's just sort of spoken about and this is the first time I sort of get what's going on. Like she is pushing Don Johnson away because she is afraid she is too afraid of losing him again to even give it a chance particularly as an older woman who is scared that like he will lose interest and just run off with someone younger and Jane Fonda Is. You know a great actor and she like really sells. This and I have to admit guys I started crying at this point and I think it's because I think because like one thing that connects with me I don't know why is someone later in life. Sort of making an emotional breakthrough and She's opening yourself up to something scary and I was like I was crying kind of what you're doing right now by revealing this emotional honesty to us. I'm tearing up a little bit. There's there's another part that also made me cry. I think it was primed to cry because I was already crying from the scene. But I'll tell you when we get. Okay Wow dan I didn't. I had no idea it had such an emotional impact on you and I'm really happy that That you manage to get around to watching the movie this morning about it. I mean like I fall asleep during movies before so the so. I want to hear about the other thing. That's going to be crowded anyway. She she goes after him and she rushes to catch Arthur at the airport but fails to catch him there. Meanwhile at the talent show at the charity dinner and raised emerged. As like. I'm just GONNA dance without my husband. Wanted to my old little kid tap dance routines Red Red Robin but the wrong song starts playing. It's MEATLOAF's which is it. I will do anything for love for love and the guy backstage which is like the most comical ooh and everybody is everyone's like she's dancing to meatloaf and she's making it work and it's like this is crazy as it. What she's doing is insane and yet somehow she's she's made to do it. And then who shows up Craig t Nelson and I'm not sure if it was like that he put the wrong on purpose for this where he just managed. I think he rent. Does he ride his motorcycle into the room? Just magic you. Just imagine it that way because he runs with his motorcycle helmet on and eleven because it could have been. It could've been a Improv shorthand for yes. It could've been antipathy to the scene in rocky horror where meatloaf rides his motorcycle into the room. But they didn't I guess and this was the time I cried. Not because like it wasn't like I mean there's utterly predictable that he would show up for her big moment but they had done the work again like I feel like this is the most emotionally grounded. One that I'm like Like their reconnecting. That's nice. Yeah I mean but this is the kind of story that usually take about nine to ten minutes of a twenty two minute feature it was. It was pretty emotional for me. Because you know there's a great song plane had just made me think about how meatloaf is a climate change denier and appreciate enjoys music anymore. I mean you also have to ignore Nelson's political views. Yeah I remember. We used to play that clip on the daily show a lot when he was on Fox and he said I was on welfare. I was on food stamps. Nobody had offered me a hand out. It was like hold on a second life. The and they are so turned on that they rush home to have sex on his motorcycle. I mean they're rushing home on his motorcycle. I don't know where they had sex. Maybe cycle on the motorcycle because for Crazy. Nelson that'd be a threesome at that point. He loves them motorcycle. I guess so. Do you think she that era. We don't see the scene. But do you think maybe should I take it that he was lavishing so much attention on the motorcycle? And Not at her. What do you mean? We didn't see those all fucking we didn't know. What did you see? The book loved. I fell I fell asleep watching this and a crash came on the TV afterwards. Merged THEM IN MY MIND L. Fair Fair. And what channel is this. That was playing both movies. Too Damn was distance you reading a Penthouse magazine and fell asleep on a story painting. Dan was watching the cognitive dissonance channel. Or CDC Dan that's not the CDC. You're supposed to be getting your information for her. Jane Fonda. She goes back to hotel. Hey Guess who's there waiting for her? It's Arthur he didn't get on the plane. He needed her. They kiss and thank Keaton. She's with her daughters eating pizza in Arizona and I was like it's just the three of them eating pizza at a table and I couldn't help but think like the rest of their families like the grandma just showed up. Why are their kids and their husbands? Not There for dinner. It was strange to me the husbands are like I'm assuming out the yard drinking from a bowl and eating slop is that your married life is like what I like about. This is one of the daughters goes. Does anyone want a piece of Pizza? And my wife. Audibly groaned at the term piece of pizza and then Alicia Silverstone lifted up these slice of pizza and her hand goes. I already got one. That's all that's a little story in miniature. You know there's a set up in a resolution one. There's Pizza Acteal. The the question goes out there. Pizza Act three. I don't need pizza. Thank you but it's a theory. That is her daughters proving that they don't need they don't need their mom in their life because they can provide their own pieces of pizza. I mean that wasn't that wasn't really the I think the lesson was more that she doesn't need them to take care of her but she does it. Read to provide pieces of pizza hungry bird. Now how is this map onto a Dan Harmon story CIRCLE THEIR ZONE OF COMFORT? They have their mother with them. Then there's a problem pizza eventually. They they meet the goddess who I assume in this case is Diane Keaton. And by the end they are back where they started that zone of comfort but they've learned a lesson. Which is that Diane? Keaton needs to go live her own life she i. I don't remember what it is that causes her to finally snap. Maybe it's the busiest saying saying piece of pizza. But she goes. Hey stop taking care of me. I have my own life to live. And I'm not owning it and she drives. She shouldn't have driven all the way down herself. Radicalized someone because she's a because she's such an old person driver and she drives her u-haul over the pilots house and he's like what's this and she goes my overnight bag and it's like jkm's. I'm moving in I. I live here now squatter. This is just like this is less dislike the servants. I now live here. This is my house I take. I control it and candice. Bergen guess what she reactor online dating account and reconnects with George Richard Dreyfuss. Just like she swipes on him and they match them like wait. They matched before the fuck is going on why he might have changed enough since that date that they that they don't match anymore. No I mean I guess also has Like a run out over time but I don't think it's been a long enough time in the world of Book Club for that to happen. I mean at this point also you can assume that she just call him. They probably exchange things. Yeah but guys the next thing. Is You know what I mean. Don't explain it sir. Can you explain that in clear terms? Okay so imagine. Life is like a piece of pizza and life begins when one piece of pizza and Pepperoni empowering me. Okay I mean my mom always said life is like a box of chocolates. This is very confusing to me. A piece a piece of pepperonis Wichita single payer pizza Peru only a single piece of pizza. Yeah what's the next step of this? Podcast okay then. Pizza sauce is probably involved right. Credits is the next step. Then there's and then during the credits where there's there's this little scene we see the ladies recreating their old fake photo of how they're posed in a bar together and that's it there in the book still. I guess I thought for sure. They're going to be some loops but there are no blue there were no blue Keno. Why because there's such flawless professionals that they got every line right on the first take and so there. You have it for ladies. They read fifty shades of grey. There realize what's wrong with their lives and they take minimal steps to do the obvious to achieve success and satisfaction. Look won't you yeah okay? Well it seemed like they had a law. Now they do over here. That's the slogan on the first. They thought they had at all dot dot dot and now they do. I mean do you think. The tagline of this movie should've been joined the book club or the tagline was. The next chapter is always the best. Oh so it's the next chapter in their lives Let's cool categorically untrue. It's not always ex chapter. That is the best but sure. I'm Dan with a nihilistic view of Reading Hey right now this chapter is probably the best. The next I probably look at the next chapter could be the best but let's not making the assurances. Let's not writing. Checks are but cash here. Dan. Why is your but cashing your checks. Dan What I said. I said you needed to get someone to have power of attorney. Not Power of Butts Ernie. I think you misunderstood doesn't even sound alike anyway. Let's go onto final judgments? This is a good bad movie. A bad bad movie movie camera liked. I gotTa admit I kinda liked this movie like it is not. I mean it makes you cry twice Dan. I think he likes this movie. The movie here's my take on the movie. This movie works in spite of the script and direction that poll quote on the posters now. This movie works. Dan McCoy the best like it works entirely on the fact that this is. These are old pros. They're great lake. You love seeing them. Interact you love seeing them in a movie and it just proves that like there should be more movies featuring it should be more movies. It proves that there should be more movies featuring older characters featuring older actors specifically older women because like if this movie can squeak by and work on me in with bad material imagine the saint cast with good share hill. That's by take imagine if it was the best exotic marigold hotel you know. Yeah the Mediocre Dodig Dan. I'M GONNA I'M NOT GONNA go. Savar sits movie analyzed. Because I didn't like it but I will call it a good bad movie in that Europe throughout the movie. I just kept being like all right movie like I couldn't. The movie was so like exactly what I thought it would be it away that I found comforting. I guess but it also just every time watching. I was like there's a whole world of cinema out there and I'll call cinema that I don't see normally and that most of America sees and like it's good for me to recognize that but also pretty dumb movie I I could see watching and just groaning with people. It's not the kind of movie where you're GONNA BE MAKING SNIDE comments which we're gonNA grown at it. Could you say that in a more coastal I can't I'm Costa Leap. I watched I watched it in a condescending way. I mean I don't know if I'd say coastal because my mom who also lives on the coast. I think would love this movie but I guess it's more generational condescension. I will say this just looking at it right now. Looking at the ages of these women in the movie Mary Steenburgen. You can tell us. The is the youngest of them. Jane Fonda. I didn't realize corner. Wikipedia eighty two years old and she looks amazing in the mood. Everybody's talking about Jane. Fonda is amazing. Everyone at J. Lo at fifty Jane Fonda at eighty two is much more present. And she's like you'd never for a moment. Do I not buy that. She is a an incredibly like sexually active and attractive woman. And I think that's attic also been like she's also been like putting up with bullshit for so long. I both agree with you Elliott. And I'm glad for her and the we probably shouldn't spend much time talking about these women's looks Dan. I want to celebrate the beauty of these women. I'm just saying that beauty is ageless. Okay sure what do you have to say? So I'm going to say this. Is You know there's stuff going on in the world right now and the idea of watching a movie that has like basically no tension or drama or thrills. It's comforting right now. He was good to watch a movie where everything went wrong for these characters. They would be fine. Yeah it's not like the other movie. I was watching that. I've been watching spread out over the last couple of days. I saw the devil which is horrible. Violent L. Yeah that's A. That's a work movie. Yeah but it's still great but really good but it's yeah that's that's a that's a let's say polar opposite of the movie were so. I I I'll go as far as to say it's it doesn't necessarily fall under the like good bad criteria but it isn't necessarily like I'm not mad at it so it's kind of inbetween good bad movie on fine with okay. We allow it. Says Judge Wellington? There's nothing quite like sailing in the com- international waters on my ship the s biopic. It's actually pronounced bio pic. No yet dangerous. Wyopreps says it's by OPEC because this was a word five biography picture all right. That is enough a Hoy. I'm Dave Holmes I'm the host of the rebooted. Podcast formerly known as international waters designed to resolve petty but persistent arguments like this. How by pitting two teams of opinionated comedians against each other with Trivia and Improv Games of course winner takes home the right to right? What podcast be this skull troubled waters where we disagree? Two Disagree Macho man to the of flying up. Oh the cover her. We've got a new chimp. Yonne here with Macho Man Randy savage after his big wind. Become the new champion. What are you GonNa do now match? Listen to the newest episode of the fights. Podcast will year. Tell us more about this podcast. It's the podcast. The power to sweet to be Sour Funky like a monkey woop discussions man and jokes about wrestlers fashion choices myself excluded. Wait to listen either. Can I find Saturdays on maximum fund? Get letters our next thing. Normally we would have some sponsors here. Originally this was going to be in sort of the Max Fund drive zone. So there's nothing scheduled but and I want but I do want to take this moment. I could talk for Awhile Again. About how attractive. I found all the women in the movie. I mean that's been kind of working so far right. Let's I do want to take this moment to say i. I think it will surprise no-one to know that the Toronto show has been cancelled as that entire film festival. We hope to be passed this pandemic as everyone does soon. We hope to be back out on the road entertaining folk ourselves. The big worry about this. This pandemic is not. When's the flop house going to get back on the road but it is something that we will do when the Times ready. Yeah but let's move on to let hers this first. One is from ally who writes howdy. Flappers I'm going to skip over this part where he tells us that we're great and go onto the question which probably doesn't feel that way anymore after listening to the episode. Anyway I'm a creep. He thinks Dan is rude to people who write in letters and still like still. Yeah but Eli Rights. I mean that's the way it goes away rights with the success of the purge. Tv Show what movie have you watched for the podcast that you would turn into a TV show? Hopefully it doesn't take two years for this email to be read. Aro. Ck In the USA. Eli You know you guys got US jabs in at the end even those or he got you know he was nice to us you. You described it but I didn't get to hear it about how did not worthy or some some nonsense. Yeah I feel like I've been watching. I watched a couple of series that are based on movies. I just watched the high fidelity series on who which is basically just like a slight Palette swap. And I don't I don't quite buy some of the choices like I don't really buy Zoe Kravitz. Is this unlucky in love jerk. Because she's one of those beautiful women in the world so that's weird but the and then I also watched the outsider on. Hbo and in both cases which I guess isn't based on a movie but feels like a horror movie just strung out into ten episodes and I feel like in both cases just took material that would normally make one movie and they're like how can we turn this into a ten episode series for good and bad like I mean You know like stretching things outlet you add a little more depth. And so what? I'm going to the way I'm going to answer. This question is looking back at our recent movies. I think they should make a TV show out. Potters Ville turned into a thirty minute along Sitcom now. Tell us a little bit about how they would do that. Is it a long running? Is it like a long running thing about bigfoot or is there a new adventure every every week I would say it's a thirty minute long? Sitcom it is the big thing stays there. That is a consistent running thing in the show. There's no arc. Each episode can be taken entirely separate from the other episode. Like you're trapped in this like this endless cycle of potters Ville Christmas always Christmas in every episode. Yeah Yeah Okay all right and I don't like about a series of thirty minute hallmark movies calendar but there's a little bit of twin peaks about it certainly a little bit of twin peaks about Serey For some reason picked up a a series of thirty minute hallmark movies and thought that was the thing that I wanted information about. I guess it's on. Yeah I say I know every they just WanNa about Barnesville. So it's it takes place. I don't I assume like my Shannon's stores central set of course and now is he is continuing on from the movies. He now in a relationship with Judy. Greer or is he still married to Christina Hendricks. It's I mean it's going to start all the way at the beginning L. So he's he's going to begin married in some episodes. He'll be married to Christina Hendricks in other associates. Going to be dating Judy greer. And you don't know how we got from point eight that's fair you can't tell if you're like somebody just took the episodes and like shuffled car now. Stewart. Why is you know? There's no path like some places where there's like. There's a character of the broken arm in one episode and then in a completely different episode. He breaks his arm. But it doesn't track with the marriage plotlines. What is happening so this is so traditional. Sitcom if I if I can interject a traditional Sitcom there's an assumption that the episodes take place in some sequence one after the other even something like the simpsons there's either slow development over time or it's just well this is another day. What you're suggesting is a radical new reinvention. The sitcoms were takes place in an alternate reality from a previous episode where it's the same character situation. But they're in a slightly different place and because their existing in a parallel dimension there is no sequencing continuity. It's almost like each element in the in the story whether it's physical like set decoration items or people's lives those all run completely different trajectories at any given time so you don't know what point in. Potter's Villier at ten minutes of each episode is more just getting your bearings like what's going on in. Potter's villain this. I twenty five minutes. You're like what is the first twenty five of the thirty. You're trying not to vomit because your mind is just. You're trying too hard. So you're saying it's less about like alternate realities. More like potted. Villes come unstuck in time but individual helmets of it. Maybe like differently unstuck in time exactly. You're perfectly your problem. I just resonated. I don't quite understand the creative choice. Making the the he is a radical reinvention. The normal purpose of a Sitcom is reassurance. It's slight education which has led to Catharsis of return to the norm but suggesting instead a sitcom that aims for the opposite objective re unsettles the viewer and introduced leaves them teetering on the brink of madness as they try to just though experienced squares the past experiences. Yeah Yeah I mean. Luckily a pitch worked pretty well. When I yelled at Michael Shannon. We are crossing each other on the street. My neighborhood the other complex idea to get across just yelling to Michael Shannon as you're crossing past each other Surrey Bothers. Ville but crazy yup gave me a thumbs up. I mean participle. The movie is already a little crazy. So you probably thought you said Potter's villages crazy and not. I don't think that's him green-lighting the series though that I think he might just be indulging What are you a fan? I don't know it seemed like the behavior of an executive producer credit. Okay The president of HBO. Max was walking with Michael Shannon at the time and also give you a nod right. Hbo Max is that the HBO. That's like a little bit too hot for comic books. Now it's what it's maximum the maximum. Hbo But I think this is a great idea. Dan What are you GONNA do? Let's show I won't talk at length because nothing can top that I was just like this is a bit of a cheap because this is a movie like that we based on you know. There's a movie that we enjoy and we did as a special episode but you know a tango and cash. Tv show. I would love to get the original stars back as An aging tango and cash just adventures every week. Not Not to reveal too much. This is something that a former podcast. Guest Brennan Hey and I have talked about before and in looked into and the rights to that movie are so mixed up that allow that where it was but it was something that we were genuinely thinking about. Developing and pitching was the tape cash. Tv show. And I'll just say I would make a TV show to book love. They already did it. It's called Golden Girls Boom. We're there all right. Well there's one more I was considering maybe a TV. Show of Valerian and the city of a thousand planets but that was Kinda just turn into Babylon five right. Yeah yeah probably so there's One more letter. It has no question but delightful anecdotes. It's from David last name withheld and Wright late so is it. We'll just hear it. We'll we'll see it's not your brother. It's not my brother okay. Okay David it is David Company. You guessed it okay. David Company is Rights Wall Mr Payback. It's ironic because on Red Choudhury's people were writing to David Duchovny. Now he's writing to us. Yeah wait right until I'm starting the letter to Wa- Mr pay-back has come up several times before on your show. I didn't realize until the discussion on your virata episode that none of you had actually seen it. I've not only seen Mr Payback in theaters. I've seen Mr Payback please. Mr Payback is my father. Call Me John. Payback have not only seen it in theaters. I've seen every branch of the interactive movie in the theater and I did it by ruining the film for everybody He explains I was working at a place. Where one of the theaters had to be converted to an all. Mr Payback Cinema. The large the large controller armrest and the new digital projector meant that the theater could not be used for anything else and we had to keep screening half hour longer film for six weeks even though there was hardly anyone ever in it We had anyone in the theater. Not Hardly any in the movie because the movie it's it featured Christopher Lloyd. Add and lots of people were in the movie. And of course billy warlock as Mr Payback. Yeah we had an employee screening before it opens. We all knew it was doomed right from the start but the bad movie. Fan got the idea of trying to watch all the paths so for the first week I would slip into the theater with the five or so patrons walk Janet and just go along with them then. I made a discovery. The voting mechanism did not work properly rather than letting each seat vote wants. Mr Payback counted each time. The button was pressed as vote. Once I discovered this I began stuffing the ballot box in all of the Mr Payback screenings. So I can see the bits of the movie I hadn't watched yet. People would be sitting alone in that theater and I'd come in the back and voted dozen times on the part. I wanted to see. I wonder how many of those people left thinking that the Mr pay-back voting was as rigged as Mr Sardonicus twenty five years later. The only thing I remember about Mr Payback as a movie was at the biggest celebrity that he get for it was frank. Gorton keep on flopping David last name withheld Francorchamps are pretty big star right for us. Maybe oh that's charming tale of cruelty towards others. I just really love that. The theatre had to make such an investment in Mr back like that was an all in risk and if it had paid off they'd be look like geniuses. Pay Back if it was going to be the future of cinema. Elliot's was going to be the future of sin. So have you guys ever seen an interactive movie that you really liked like that worked for you because I feel like every now and then they try it like they had that Black Mirror episode and I feel like when I see a movie? I don't WanNa have to make choices. I WANNA be like in the world the filmmakers creating and I want to see where they take me but maybe you guys feel differently like having a sense of control over the narrative. I feel like Video Games. Have taken over that space right. And I'm point a game player so I wouldn't know you and described herself as Gameboy. I would not okay but then you were so into Gamer Gate. At the time. He said that ethics and journalism was really important right. Slander ME EVERY EPISODE. Dan. I've been such a creep in this episode. I just got to make someone else. The bad guy. Yeah that was a great story. Thank you Dave for writing in. Let us move along to the last segment where we recommend movies that we watched recently or not so recently that you should you know why not check them out? Maybe maybe your self isolating and you got to fill the hours who knows. I'll go first so I will admit that this may be a very specific reason. I liked this movie I club. Yeah no I had taken part of an edible to deal with the exile of our current world and it kicked in Dan. You mean a piece of inedible. Oh Yeah Yeah. Remember the peace thing. Dan Give peace a chance. A piece of pizza that is working on. Its stolen my now bit. So the edible kicked in right when I happened across the very beginning of Tommy on television and I'd never watched Tommy and Oh boy you know if you happen to be in that situation. Where you're both mildly stoned and D- just want something that will wash over you and you don't have to think about that much. Tommy will fit the bill because it is a crazy rock opera by the WHO about a kid with psychosomatic deaf blindness who becomes a pinball wizard as we all know and becomes kind of a messianic figure. Is this the movie with Chris Farley? And David exactly me boy. Oh this is the one with Oliver Reed who cannot sing an and Margaret who can and it is directed by Ken. Russell been master of crazy excess and bad taste and it explodes all over the screen and I will say I don't know whether the A it was just like a weird airing on the channel. I was watching. The vocals were mixed so low in the explosive who soundtrack that you know they might might as well not have been singing so I turned on the closed captions. That may be something you need to do. But it's just a sensory overload so if you're in the mood for that it's crazy and Weird and fun and Tommy Tommy Boy. Yeah that's GonNa leave a mark anyway. I'm going to recommend a movie starring one. Elijah Wood called. Come to daddy movie about a young. Dj WHO IS DJ? Sorry I thought Your Damn. Why are you real time fact correcting recommendation? Sorry go I'm I apologize. So he's and he wants to reconnect with his biological father who he has never had a relationship with wait. Wait wait now Dan can you? Can you verify that for me? Yes sorry I can't verify this. Thank you and of course. This reunion does not go exactly as he had hoped. And it's a weird thriller that starts strange and then spirals into weirder and darker places than you'd expect and it turns into a real showcase for a lot of fun character actors. It's fun in gross and funny checkout come today yeah it was kind of like. I feel like it has like the it's a Canadian New Zealand co production and it has. It's got that crazy. Sorry I shouldn't see his criticism of the guy who did the greasy strangler made it. Okay Yeah it's it's got that weird vibe It's like a much stranger goofy version of like Jeremy saw Sonia a thriller. I feel like yeah I can see that. Sorry Elliot what were you GonNa say nothing? I have my recommendation if you ready if you're done you're done providing the Pinocchio for Stewart's first nations God the frustrations coming out right at the end of the. I'm going to recommend to movies. One of them might be a little on the nose and the other one is more of a comfort food movie so movie that I saw recently that I liked more than I thought I would but which may not be the right one for movie right for people right now is a movie called the world. The flesh and the devil this movie from Nineteen fifty-nine starring Harry Belafonte and anger Stevens and welfare about a a It's an end the world movie where Harry Belafonte for. Awhile thinks he is the last person left on earth. There is There's the use of atomic poison. That's wiped out most of humanity and the strange thing about this movie. We never see anybody's. They seem to have all disappeared and a lot of his Harry. Belafonte trying to make his way thinking he's the only person there and then finding a woman alive in New York and trying to figure out how to kind of like shake off the like limits. He feels from where his place was in the previous society. In the thing that I found really interesting this movie that they don't play with as much as they would have liked is the idea that he doesn't necessarily want to return to the way life was before because for a black man in America in the nineteen fifties. It might be better for him to now be on his own and self sufficient and in control of his surroundings rather than part of this institutional culture in which he can never have everything he wants always going to be kind of a second classes and so they do a little bit with that in that it found really fascinating and eventually turns into kind of like a weird love triangle that is not super successful. But if you don't want to watch a movie about most of the people in the world dying which I understand is not the thing you WanNa Watch right now. I would also recommend one of my favorites. The music man. We recently got a record player and hooked it up in our house and we got my wife's parents old record collection and my son has been crazy about the soundtrack to the music man. And we've been listening to it a lot lately then just reminds me what a like for me feel good movie. That movie is I love the Song Senate. It's really bright and colorful the dancing great. The performers are really great. And I just really love it so if you want something that just GonNa make you feel good. I'll recommend the music man if you want something that is going to tap into your anxieties than perhaps the world the flesh and the devil. There's some line line readings that Robert Preston gives in that that I find so funny like he just knows what he's doing the only thing I will say about the music man is. There's one song in it. You can probably guess which song it is that I do not like. It's ship Poopie. The the song is basically about like if a girl is not interested in you. Just keep pressing your case and eventually a winner over and I don't like that song I both don't like it as a song. I think it's gross but otherwise I like the rest of the movie a lot. Well guys I think this was fun. It's nice to see Dan and see how nice to see people out in the world. I mean you know. I've been sick for a couple of days and I just thought like if I'm GonNa go well you know. I want to be on mass jokes about book club. You Yeah Yeah Yeah I think It's nice that we can still use modern technology to interact with each other and I had a lot of fun talking with you guys about book club and I Apologize.

Assets grow visit mastercard dot us slash b. of a small business to learn more together. Let's start something. Priceless back on the wells gas very excited to have a man who literally has done everything but now gets to do the greatest thing phil rosenthal of somebody feed fill which is be on your show. Yes exact rate thing nobody ever. Oh no it's going to be happening a lot more. You're gonna see after this thing off. Wait just you wait. You know i come from the reality. Tv world nive pitch shows left and right. And i think after boarding past everybody wanted that gig. And i feel like your the one guy who got the greatest reality tv gig ever with somebody feed phil. How did this come about. You're right that is the greatest gig ever. I was doing it while. Gordon was a with us but i will say this. He was the number one influence right. I mean everyone who travels are each not just on tv but in life owes a debt to mr bourdain. Here's how i sold the show by the way with one line. I said i'm exactly like anthony bourdain if he was afraid of everything and and i've been wanting to do this show for a long time and i was doing. Everybody loves raymond. We did an episode where we went to. It'll and ray did not want to go. That was actually the impetus for the episode was. I asked him where he was going to go on vacation in between seasons the first year and he said i go to the jersey shore and i said well that's nice you ever been to europe and he goes why not. It goes on not really interested in other cultures. So that's what i thought. We gotta do that show where we go to. Italy is culture that he's not and we send them over there with that attitude of a mom really interested and we send him back as need someone excited about traveling and especially it'll you come on. So righty episode about ray. The character getting woke guy when he goes to italy. And what happened. Was that thing that i wrote for the character where he gets it. I saw ray romano get it when we were over there. It was like. Oh my god philip. You tried this july auto. It's unbelievable have you tried the pizza. Pasta it's crazy. I'm like yeah that's why we go. What it so now. He's changed. And i thought this is amazing. I love doing this. I love turning. I dare say that's why you do what you do. You like turning people onto stuff you like right and so that's that that feeling got in really deep with me and i thought wouldn't it be great to do this for every baht and so since then i'm talking about twenty years ago. I had that experience with ray and ever since then. I want to do this show. Raymond ended five years after that and from that time it took me ten years to get the show so it wasn't just like i can do whatever i want. Hey i'd like to do a food and travel show. No it took ten years of really trying to sell this idea to people because they don't just hand these out shows like this. And i had to convince them. I made little tapes. I've made little videos and stuff. It took a long time is was it worth it. He has yes. So did you go film essentially a pilot episode to pitch two different networks. It worth things. Like i got asked by american express. One time was putting it out there. That i that i wanted to do this. They said well we saw you in this movie. I did a movie called exporting. Raymond where i went to russia and because they wanted me to help them make raymond over there. They wanted to make. Everybody loves culture and so at movies documentary about me going over there and trying to help them do a citgo which they don't usually do and so that was. That was my first time on camera. So american express when they heard i wanted to do something in the food and travel space. They said hey do do this thing for us for our platinum card members. Whatever go to london with a famous chef and will film it for a week. We'll have these snippets to you. Know we'll have this film to show our cardmembers and have dinner around. There's some for rich people. This was going to be the pilot for a show that they were gonna sponsor note. They just wanted these clips for richmond. But what i did was. I made my own clips of that and that was my kind of addition that was my kind of pile right and i walked when all over town trying to sell it and it wasn't until pbs. Said we'd been looking for a food and travel show with humor for a long time. And i called my brother. Who's a producer for other tv shows and commercials. I said i got this. I got this job. He goes what i said. Pbs is going to give me six episodes on the air where i go around the world and try to get you to travel by showing you the best places to eat. And he said really. They're giving you that. Trump has said. Yeah because or the mikkola show. The lucky best. And i said quit your job. Richard and produced the show with me and we'll call our production company. Lucky bastard. that's what it is. That's what it is and that show was called. I'll have which fills having. I'll have what feels having you can see that on. Itunes now our amazon prime and then netflix's saw it and they said come to netflix. And do do you have to change a title. All right so change it to somebody bill. I got lake street dive to do theme song which was nominee for fernando. The theme saw very proud of that. I wrote down some lyrics. And i sent it to them. I knew the band and they expanded on the lyrics and change them a little bit and made that tune which is like the most danceable theme. So it's so good. I'm so proud of it. I'm proud of them so great. It's probably ninety percent of the show's success is the theme. So when you look at like some of the great shows of all time. The theme song is definitely iconic seinfeld with the base. You know friends would obviously yeah. I did know lake. I love those guys. That's that's amazing. I would tell everybody if you if this is the first time you're hearing that name. Go on spotify go on i tunes and just download some of their records because that they are fantastic so you guys are in year. Fourth season of somebody feed fill. It did hawaii. Rio de janeiro san singapore and the mississippi delta which i love by the way i'm from california but i went to school in mississippi so i used to go down to the delta lot with some of my friends and see where they grew. So did you go to some of the places that that are in the show. Not where you went. But i've been all around you know in green wouldn't rosedale and cleveland all those like mississippi delta towns. You didn't go to does eat funny. Say that because there's a dozy place where i went to college in oxford mississippi. But it's not it's not the original one which is i didn't even know they were multiple locations or at least another one. I didn't even know that he'll recently. When i was down there i thought this was a one-of-a-kind by the way if feels one of kind i must say that that is the original and it is spectacular. It's one of the best steakhouses in the world. Oh yeah for this. Most recent season. Did you have a favorite locale. That was one of them daily mississippi delta because it was such a surprise. I thought listen. I'm a nice jewish boy from new york. I don't go to the mississippi for me. It was like going into deliverance. They would take to me right. I thought i thought it was going to just going up to be honest. What's presented on tv in the media. It's like redneck central right. I didn't know where i was going on. And how would be treated. And you see the trump the sweetest nicest greatest people so inviting so warm. Was that your experience when you went to school there. Obviously there's some history that's kind of hard to get around for the most part. Everyone was super nice super hospitable. I was from california. I was one of the first people from california to go to ole miss. They called me a yankee. And i was like you guys are there. You have no idea what maps look. I am the actually from a yankee. Then you are to be fair. But no i loved it and i did love you. Know the delta. I have an emphasis in blues anthropology. And so i would sit in the mezzanine in our library and i would listen to old blues records records that don't even exist anymore and then we go down to the delta and and we'd go these juke joints and watch. These old timers play absolutely amazing blues music in these ramshackle pre civil war era. Juke joints if you had a chance to go back. You should go to a place called paul monkeys. It's in miracle mississippi and it's one of the coolest pieces of americana left no world you'd love it. I'm glad that you had a good experience down there as well. Those wonderful i another surprised at like the maternity of the food as well. Yes you have your greatest hits your your your fried chicken and ribs and all that great soul food and i had like stuff like chicken fried lobster tail. Which when it comes to the table. You're like really people. Do we have to chicken. Fry everything yes you can't. Can't we. Just have a steam lobster note. What i realized was when you chicken. Try that lobster. Tail took that amazing seasoning. That better but it seems the lobster meat in the shell surrounded by the banner so you actually get the perfect steam on it. It's so tender and juicy and as the flavor from the batter lobster is how hands on are you with the production of the show. The bits inbetween where you're going. Are you able to see like how listen guys. I don't wanna do that or are you like that would be funny. Let's do it well. Since it's my brother producing it was my brother. He before with me left and right. That's why i asked the question. Oh then you already have the anti. That's exactly what happens. And he'll say for instance in vietnam and say okay tomorrow. You're getting up at four in the morning and we're going to go to this island in the middle of the river and in the middle of the islands a swamp lake. And you're going to go in there and hip waiters and you're going to pick lotus roots with the family and pict- nails out of thing. I'm like you lost me at four. Am i'm not doing that. Nobody needs to see that. You know it's not fun for me an end. It's not fun for the people watching because you're doing it. I'm like i'm not doing it. I don't want to do it. i'm old and i'm not going in some late. That what's in their shirt enough. I did it and it was one of the great experiences of my life because it was first of all funny second of all the family the family the family. It's always about the people be right in the experience and it was gorgeous. Because i was there. Why but foot before before sunrise and got to see the sunrise over this thing. If you see that sequence it's kinda spectacular and he was right. Don't tell him he was right but ninety percent of the time he's right because he knows me and he knows it will be. I will funny and second of all worth doing because i'm stepping out of my comfort zone. Which is all i want people to do. You know the shows for people who don't travel not two thirds of us. Don't have a passport america. So if i'm trying to get you to travel i'm starting with what i think. Our earth greatest hits the stuff that's going to be accessible where a lot of people speak english there and there's gonna be a hotel you don't have to sleep in a tree right. There's gonna be restaurants with food that you recognise right and yet once you're there you might be tempted to try something new. So that's why so. If you see me going out of my comfort zone if you just see. I think if people say if that puts can go outside maybe i can't to write. I love that man. And i do. I love the travel as well. And i like to do weird and eat weird stuff. I'm definitely like a win. Rome type of guy but i guess i have my limits. I heard that you don't eat before you film. You know how they make a dog for commercial. They don't dog until the commercial so the dog looks excited to eat. That makes practical sense. Doesn't it if i went to vietnam and they said here's this guy makes this day. She's been doing it for sixty years and here it is and i went to right. That's not a good show is now acting. I really do feel excited. But i'm extra excited baby because what you see me. Eating need scene is probably the first thing i ate that day. So it looks like i'm a pig and eat nonstop but you're seeing a week's worth of filming condensed into an hour and that those scenes there's maybe one or two of them a debt. So that's it. And i learned by the way from doing that. American express lane in london. They booked us on that gig. They booked us into twenty seven points in seven days. And because i was with the famous chef they were all like white tablecloth. Fancy meals so when the food was coming i was like. Oh no like. I have to eat again. You don't want that wanna go. Oh yeah not enough so that i learned you pace yourself. You don't finish anything. I have a crew there. Who's looking at me like this. You know A meeting so be cruel not to share with them. I love sharing it with them. 'cause it's fun to see their faces light up and what that also does is. It saves my belly for the next thing. I'm gonna taste right. So i wanna taste as many things as possible because you never know where that home runs going to be right. Somebody said it looks like phil likes. Everything doesn't mean not like an yup. you don't see the new show like it. It's not the show. I'm trying to get you to travel. I'm trying to show you the best stuff. There's no reason to show you the stuff that's just okay. We're bad right if it's really bad like the thousand year old guy eight in hong kong which almost killed me then you hear my brother laughing on the other side of the camera. We leave that it. It's funny that i almost got to do. You have any limits if it's so disgusting and by disgusting. Everybody has their line for discussed right. So i think. I'm like most americans who don't wanna eat bugs and snakes addict that's fair to say right. Yeah and that's an american thing. In other cultures and other countries you know they do might friend told me he was the guest of honor at a in a rural dinner in china and because he was the guest of honor the american they brought over a poisonous snake to the table live and held it up next to him and took out a knife on cup. Open the snake while. It's along pulled out the gallbladder of the poisonous snake- and squeezed the gallbladder into a glass and gave it to him to drink as the guest of honor to which i say. Please don't me. Because i would faint in that situation. I would faint first of all. I would run screaming out of the restaurant at the site of the live snake. Yeah cutting it open. Fake third squeeze the goal faint. Give me the glass faint. I would never recover from this. I asked my friend So why don't you just say you know i physically can't i'm gonna be the he goes. That would have been the greatest insult to them because they were doing this special for me. I had to end goes i drank it and i go and he goes. It was much grocer than you. Well then that is off the charts growth. Because i'm thinking it's gonna be really groped. He goes you know the worst part was it was warm worse. Of course it's war is really so i see your face i know so. These are things that most people from america wouldn't do but in another land in another culture not disparaging them at all. That is their thing. That is like the height of. I dunno for really honor for you to have that thing. I don't know what i would do in that situation other than not get myself into that situation. Yeah i so that. I don't have to insult anybody. 'cause that's the last thing i wanna do. I have tried a bug or two in the show when pushed right. I gone a little out of my comfort soft and i can tell you that i'm eating. Were to right because it's been served to me this way. This one japanese chef said try this end. It tastes like lemon to which i said in that case. Could i please have lemon. And he said. I want you to try his hand and because the person i was with this nice lady did it. I mustered up all my courage to take that. And and put it in my mouth with all the coverage i could muster bite down and then damn if it didn't taste like london and so now the questions. Okay chef what did you do base this and lemon so that it tastes like know. These ends not every aunt. These particular ants from this particular part of this forest in japan tastes like lemon. Who was the first guy to discover that but this but that was interesting and it didn't kill me and there was something cool and story until you right. The gallbladder story it. There's a part of me that thinks that they're like hey. Here comes a stupid american. Let's let's see he'll do it. Nope i know that's what it must feel like like a prank. Yeah but a really that you know again. We can't disparage to can't can't say or judge because it cultures are different than we. The whole point of the show is to be more accepting and understand this. Just things that i know that. I'm a wuss. And i'm not doing. I mean you've been all over. Where are places that you've kind of pinned on the map that you want to go for. Future seasons only have done haven't scratched the surface of the earth. Yeah right so we've done twenty to somebody feed fills in six fills having that's twenty eight places. There are one hundred and ninety countries and thousands of cities in those countries to see so. I haven't been to india yet view now so courtesy that i've been to australia to sydney once in my life but not on the show so i got that. The rest of australia is spectacular new zealand. I haven't been to greece or turkey in my life got to do that. I could keep going. I mean there's there's million places to go. I just need netflix's to let me keep doing it. And for covert to be over. So i can go. I guess logistically. Do you film this last season right before. Covid right before we finished a mid january just under the wire really fly. I mean if you look at that rio show that was mid january we filmed that and this five hundred thousand people out on the beach. Dance for carnival man. I'm so jealous of view. I also wanted to talk about how your charity somebody feed the people off. Thanks that's great so somebody feed the people dot org. I started because i saw it started from. I guess you would say it's political but it's not. It's just human people being forced to wait on line because they were shutting the polling places which is not right. We have a right to vote. What makes us america. And i thought what could we do to make this these long lines more tolerable. What if we fed the people so started somebody feed the people dot org and we were getting with the world central kitchen and other organizations food trucks and restaurants local restaurants out to feed the people online. That just a small act of kindness. But then i thought wow this was going on you know after the election. There's a lot of hungry people not just because of covid reasons that people hungry. So i'm gonna keep this going. And i want your your listeners. Central that if they go to somebody feed the people dot org and contribute to world central kitchen through that portal. I'm going to match their donation. Wants what i wanted to. So that's that's somebody feed the people dot order. Go give. I'm gonna match it. It's a nice way to help people in this terrible time. That's amazing man and also is a tree right in a book. I mean it makes sense. I suppose people need a blueprint of where the hell go. So tell everyone about the book short. While they have a website called phil rosenthal world dot com and you can get merged their that net goes to charity as well. It's also practical because it's a website that has everywhere we go on the show not just place but everywhere we ate what we ate and the websites within those of where you can just now have this instead of watching the show in writing stuff down right and then now and true stir asked me to do a companion book to the series. Somebody feed filled the book. That's going to have story and behind the scenes photos and most importantly favorite recipes from everywhere we. What have you tried to recreate some of these weird recipes. I cannot cheryl. i'm not a chef. What i do is sometimes if there's like a condiment or some item that i didn't know i can bring that home and remind me of the place. I love doing that. Yeah and the other thing about traveling is you must do this to. Let's say you go to thailand for instance and you have like. I had this dish that i didn't know about cows zoellick this incredible fresh hand pull noodle bowl of coconut curry with whatever meat you want a narrow and then crispy noodles on top of the best things i've rate and it costs a dollar when you're there so i wrote down the name of that dish cowboy k. h. a. o. s. and when it got to los angeles we're lucky to live in los angeles why we have the most diversity of injury any other place on her more people live here outside. Their native lands an anywhere else on earth for example have the biggest korean population in the world outside of korea. The biggest chinese population outside of china the biggest mexican population outside of mexico. It's here so. I go on google cowboy los angeles fifteen places at least that habit. So that's how if you ask me. Do i cook from the think. no i find. It takes well. These are thai people who came here and make counseling for me.

What brings you brought you more joy being the guy who created an iconic sitcom or being the food guy. I'm going to say both. And i know that's a cop out. But here's the thing at that point in my life like thirties and forties making. Raymond was the absolute pinnacle of my life. To that point it was phenomenal to be part of something like that.

Or wherever you get your podcasts are back in the wells cast very very happy to have the star of somebody feed fill. Which is on netflix. Right now they're in the middle of season for to show. You absolutely have to watch. Phil just going over your bio it's bonkers. You've literally done everything in show business. I need to know how the hell this all happen. So let's go back to the beginning. Fill where you from. I was born in queens new york jamaica hospital you also from jamaica. Donald j trump no. Yeah yup that's why. I'm exactly like then lived in the bronx for awhile. And then rockland county which is a half hour north of the city and then i went to hofstra university on long island and then moved into manhattan and tried to make it in new york and it was horrible for me because it was. I had nothing but odd jobs and terrible experience. I'd love to every second of it by the way. Because i loved i've talked about this. The pursuit of happiness is its own thing right. We're lucky to live in a land where we get to pursue what we want. Imagine living in the country where you'll do what your father did or you do what your mother did. And that's it. You don't have a choice right. Look i was happy having really crappy jobs in new york in my twenties out of college. Why because i could at least pursue what i wanted. What were some of the out. Yeah first job. Being a theater major. Right i sold farm and implement cleaner on the phone in a boiler room park avenue south boy the room as a giant room of schmucks on phones. Trying to south as what i did did that lasted about four months then. I was a guard at the metropolitan museum of art. A guard and at one point. I was working the midnight. Shift midnight the graveyard shifts. They call from midnight to eight in the morning and i was fired. You know why they found me at five. Am asleep in a gallery on a three hundred year old bet. Yes that was terrible moment in my life and then i was a i managed adelie per year. That was better in fifteen pounds doing that. I was attempt. I was a bartender i was. I worked in offices law offices putting a legal inserts into the books. I did all kinds of crappy jobs. But in the meantime i was also trying to get an agent and being plays and duke. Do the new york theater thing. And it wasn't until some friends of mine. And i wrote a show for ourselves to be in that it occurred to us that you do write your own ticket and that became successful and that was my transition to writing and then i moved to hollywood and then i started writing sitcoms. We're working on other people's shows. And then finally i got this tape of this ray romano fellow who had been on letterman and they letterman said. After six minutes. There should be a show for this guy. So they look for a writer to create a show for ray romano and i met within and we hit it off and that was that. What were some of the sitcoms you wrote on before. Everybody loves raymond. Have you ever heard of robert mitchum forties and fifties. He was a film more accurate. Played like philip marlowe in movies. He was you know a tough guy. He first actors to be arrested for smoking. Marijuana in in the fifties he was really cool and really tough however in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine when i first got to los angeles. They were doing a sitcom for him. And i got hired. That was my first job was being a staff writer. On the robert mitchum sitcom it lasted seven episodes. And i learned a lot because what you can learn from i show you can learn from any show and so i learned at least the workings of a sitcom i went from to the tv version of look. Who's talking. remember that movie. The baby talks. It was called baby talk. I met an actor. There who was it was his first lead in a sitcom and his name was george clooney and we started there and to this day when we see each other we hugged. And we say we survive babytalk. I also read that a lot of the dynamic between brain. His wife was real life situations that you dealt with because the writer has to write you know what they know and this was a perfect show to do that. For carl reiner. Who did the dick van dyke show. He would ask his riders. What happened at your house this week because he was doing a show about a family and i thought this is how we're gonna them. This is how we're gonna do it. We're going to go home every night for dinner. We're gonna make sure we're home because that's where the stories of you worked for me. Your job was to go home getting a fight with your wife. Come back and tell me about because that's where the show was coming from. And so. I used everything i had an. Ib right used everything and right to and so. That's why the show seemed real because it was. Well i mean you've done everything. Projects like spangler by the way my fiance's brother was in spanish curb thirty rock. Obviously you are now an author. You're doing this travel reality show. What's been the career highlight for you this right now this. Yeah yeah is. It doesn't get better than this. Because an i'm only half joking because you are reminding me and we're talking about where i am at this moment in life and right now is the best time as awful as this is cohen. I have a lot of hope. I have a lot of positively about the future. The vaccine is here. We're all gonna get and the world will be returned to us. Here's what i say we're gonna appreciate the world so much we're going to be so grateful and so happy and that feeling is gonna last two weeks you all go back to complaining. Hey this coffee's cold phil. I know i gotta let you go. I could literally talk to you for hours year. An absolute delight before you go. You have time for some rapid fire questions. Anything you want my friends okay. Rapid fire questions with phil. Rosenthal number one. Which pair pizza topping do you ever book. I just read. Woody allen's autobiography it's hilarious.

533 - The Hound and Arya Stark vs. Helen Pierce and Ruth Langmore

"Hello. This is Penn Jillette. Actually, listen to the liberal podcast featuring host Jordan Maywood I could potentially enjoy. The libra killed bad as a contest. We haven't heard yet might might be terrible. Broke you can catch with. Our here we go, this comes to us from our good friend. Jordan Maywood. Class. Hamburger, steamed ham do. Hello welcome to the Liberal Cube. My name is Jordan, may denying the lackadaisical liberal Kubrick this show is a journey into my brain into those great gooey folds do. It is a journey in which you will hear of all the media I have consumed which I will admits on this particular episode is not very much. We got a short one today. which is good because I got a lot to do? You may not have consumed some of this media yourself, so I warn of that plus oppose pot hair, possibility as I could. Spoil things for you and I don't want to do that because I'm not a bad man by any means, while maybe some means I am I'm not a mean by any means means means. Beans, beans the musical fruit. The more you eat, the more youtube to the more you toot, the better you feel, so eat beans at every meal. Monologue. Today's movie monarch sponsor is good, good, good good. Thank you for that sponsorship a William One movie yet. She's grace pretty a pretty sad state of affairs in a movie monologue. There's only one movie monologue about that movie. As poltergeists from nineteen, eighty, two, I was born in eighty one, so I probably didn't see this when it come out. Maybe I did and I. Just don't remember. Oh, very very short Himba, fish. I don't know if it's the shortest MTA I've ever seen, but it's got to be up. Their family's is haunted by a host of demonic ghosts period. End of sentence description. Yeah obvious I. Don't know if it's obvious but Yeah, probably if you listen to enough episodes, obviously I've seen this movie It's just a came up. I forgot how or why but somehow the the someone was talking. This is on the TV show or something like that, and the MRS and I both sort of. It's almost like we looked at each other and said Yeah. We should watch them because she as you know. Don't know is a huge horror movie buff. So that combined with the you know I. Don't mind the odd horror movie. especially a an eighties one. There's some there's some good, and there's some bad and there's some so bad. It's good. This was it was interesting to? It's been so long that I've seen this. That I thought it was a so bad. It's good style horror movie. But I don't know if that's the case. initiate say also that it's not scary. It's almost. I don't know sort of it's A. maybe it's something to do with written by Steven Spielberg. He didn't direct it now. written by Steven Spielberg which I I I'm fairly confident I didn't. Remember that fact We got some criteria Nelson. which is a name. That you know coach. He hit in the television show coach. Craig t Nelson. Played the titular. Coach. You may remember. Heather O'Rourke. Yeah, okay, You know I've got to look into it. What don't I just do a very brief just because William? Poulter, case movie curse I'm going. 'CAUSE! The polar is rumored to attach his trilogy, and the crew derived from the deaths of two young cast mothers in the six years between the rest of the first and third films. Okay, so yeah I think there was like a bunch of stuff including deaths of some of the cast members not during filming, but as it says here between the filming. Filming of I didn't know there was three I knew there was too I think. The Mrs and I are going to watch the second one. Which I think does fall more into the so bad. It's good category compared to the first one which again I'm still trying to pinpoint winona throat. My rating that I don't know what I'm going to say. No for yeah, it's a three as we all know is for enjoyed by watching, but probably wouldn't watch again on the fact that I've seen this probably a third viewing if I had to guess over the course of a lifetime. It's a yeah. You know they're here. That's the fun part. the the the little old lady very little, Old Lady I think she might be a little person in fact, Fairly confident of that She's great. What is her? Oh Yeah. The MRS said like her favorite line of the movie is when the the the little sort of psycho lady who comes to cleanse the house and Save the little girl. she says you're jam jammed. My frequencies and I'm trying to convince the MRS to just start throwing that in to like sentences throughout her day. to people, because it very much personality, and the fact that her favorite lion doesn't hurt either so yeah, that's what I think of poltergeist You know what's what am I pushing which which button on my pushing next this one? Television Talk. Today's television talk sponsor is lake of the ozarks Hyatt Regency Hotel. Thank you for that. Sponsorship which we're talking, overk- season three. Jesus Christ. This was an amazing piece of business. As Jimmy Pardo might say Yeah, this was a love season. One love, season, two but season. Three of the show is one of. The best just television seasons. I, think I've ever seen I really really incredible up there with you know you're breaking. Bad's your your shows of that ilk like just incredible highs and lows and I I think something that amazingly well in this comes up. An all forms of media on this podcast is I from one moment to the next, basically had no idea what was going to happen and you know. Sometimes I've mentioned this while the fact that you know if I watch a movie and in the first five minutes. I predict exactly what's going to happen. Sure that feels good because I feel smart for doing so. But I'd rather. Actually rather not have that feeling I'd actually rather. Feel dumb throat because I have no idea what's going to happen. That is a a just in terms of media consumption. Actually a more enjoyable experience for me, and this gave that in spades very very much Let me just read the. Have a look at some of the. Episodes, at season two. Okay, so if you're unfamiliar. stars Jason Bateman as a father who. Got Sort of. involved. Yes, shirtless, choose outward. With a Mexican drug cartel as you do. He's a money launderer and This show revolves around the sort of INS and outs of that interactions with family his wife who is also sort of entrenched in the life as well. There's always that sort of feeling in this of. Do, they really want out of this life or do they secretly kind of like? It's and it's almost like a husband and wife sort of vacillate back and forth where they're never on the same page, one will want in a while the other one wants out, and then one will want out. Will the other one wants in, and it's really just. Who okay. Wait wait wait This is not a huge spoiler but one prediction I made which. and it was from the first episode is the son. Jona gets a drone with a camera like as a gift. And you know played with it a lot and it was like a checkoffs drone basically. I guess is how I thought of it. I said Okay Somehow someway that drone is going to play a huge part and know end up saving the day sort of thing, and it does I think the last episode of the second last episode. Something like that, so that was one prediction, I made that did come true. Because why would why else would you give a kid a drone an show about? Mafia in. Drugs and money, laundering and FBI and unexpected deaths, if not to use it for something for something Oh we had the addition of. what's your? Charlotte gives Joan. Drone. Charlotte is the MOM right? I am horrible names. Charlotte gives a Charlotte's brother shows up. Which is You know you think it's going to be sort of like. just a element of Oh. We have to keep the secret from the sky. which they don't manage to do. I did give a spoiler at the top of the episode. You will recall. but then it takes a further step where he's bipolar and goes off his meds. and I think maybe that's where some of the fact that had no idea was gonNA happen next. Because when you add a someone who is bipolar off their meds, really any anything is possible. Any anything can and will happen as does happen in the season. I don't often and I know I've done it for books. Maybe Games, maybe movies I don't know if ever done it for TV probably for some star Trek stuff I. Have But I'm going to give ozark season three a six of five. Yes, the rare. The rarefied air for Ozark of a six out of five social very good cannot praise at highly enough. What Button am I pushing next? Okay, this one. Game. Today's game. Gabon sponsor is the ocean jere construction company. Thank you for that sponsorship. Okay we're talking raft short title. Longest Game I don't know what that means. Yeah may have seen this It was fairly popular. Still is to some degree I think it's still in. Is it still in Beta no, Oh, yes, still in early access. try to avoid early access for the most part ever since I. I got rust and loved it so much, but bought a bunch of games that were similar to it and were disappointed. a bunch of early access games. This sort of Kinda SORTA Kinda sort of. you could say rust on water. It wouldn't be accurate if he set up, but you could say it so basically you start the game. Where you're on this little like like like five foot by five foot raft made out of logs, and the some plastic, and then and just crap. and you're in the middle of the ocean. There's no land in sight, and you're given no instructions, and you have no idea what to do, and it's a little scary. Also there's a shark falls you. We should mention just a on the note of that. and and it gets dark at night in the dark dark waters where you don't know what is below is scariest for the same reason that Subotica is. A horrifying the depths of that game. You can pretty sure go on Youtube and watch. People will be in fact I think I have done this see people be horrified by some of the the deep sea creatures Subotica. This doesn't have that yet. It's still in the early access. Say So. Maybe they'll add some of that later. Yeah, like I would like more than just a shark. That's basically the only animal you ever really see in the water. Other than the fish that you can catch and cook. on that note the sort of goal of the game is as you're floating around. There's just junk. Just junk floating around known in the ocean, so that's somewhat accurate through the actual ocean and you'll have the sort of claw at the end of a wrote that you'll throw out and try to reel it in You then use this junk to make your raft bigger and. Can add things like a like a little, Cook Pot and a little water purifier and a eventually. You're building Goddamn. Engines and a giant mast A. Steering Wheel, batteries in China or yeah. This is where the sort of the story element comes in which is there eventually you're building antenna, 'cause you need to bill three, which is something they don't tell you. That wasn't a yeah. You know what on that note I should say of raft of there was on several occasions less than five, but. Somewhere in that neighborhood, I had to go on various websites and look what I was supposed to be doing. Because I had no idea they they certainly don't hold your hand in this game. which is you know one? Some people like that, and then sometimes you don't when you have to go on A. On a wikipedia and search for answers for things. Like why my antenna isn't working. And you once you have those antenna. You can sort of input. Four digit codes that will let you pinpoint things, and then you can sort of a once. You have the ability to steer raft which you need A. Mask to do so you can sort of head towards that. That the sort of blip on the radar and that's where story things unfold as you sort of move between blip and blood Ben Blah I made it to the last blip and then when I input the last code. It's a you know a coming soon and then I realized. Oh wait a second. This game is still early access. Isn't it so one thing? I will say of that I. Have this game now when it is complete I will go back in and I don't know if I'll play it from the beginning or use my save there, but I have a lot of fun. It has things that I very much. Enjoy exploration building you know I. It's fun to build your. You know like a little hot or Built into the sky like a a a thing where I could go up and get my binoculars, one thing that didn't really make sense to me actually. You could stand on the deck like right at water level, and you can go up high, and it didn't really seem to change much of what you could see Ditto with your. A binoculars it just sort of made the the the mist in the distance, a little closer I. it didn't really seem to like pop in an island as the other thing, you're sort of when you're not searching for these blips, or in between these blips like saying blips apparently There's very small little islands that you'll sort of come across where he can. You know Cut Down some trees. I. Get some flowers. Maybe some pineapples do some diving off. The Island got to be aware of that chart though. just to get resources I. It is a resource management, so there's a lot of that where you got to. Consider building things or building things like a to keep you fed verses to help you get to the next island like there's a you're always hungry and thirsty. You GotTa Watch out for that. And then the Goddamn Shark which I did kill once. Was An easy, but I did kill it. and then it just comes back again. RAFF rating solid for yeah, yeah, solid for two five I, think when it's done. And when the stories complete, and when they flushed at the world's a bit more I think, maybe even role Guetta. is a thought that I have. which button now this one? Bit, Internet intercourse. doorbells. Today's Internet integral sponsor is lose oven fries you for that. Sponsorship. Right get a few things here. I is indies for NERDS, which I haven't spoke of for a while I tend to every time. I finish listening to a arc or in this case I. Guess It's kind of a mini arc We'll bring it back and just briefly. Talk about it because it's so so very good of the D. podcast I listen to. It's not many and I've tried many. This is what I need this. This is the breakdown and I like to give it when this. Subject comes up. I need the not one hundred percent rope play one hundred percent of the time. That I do not enjoy. I need some cross chatter I need some you know. Actual life talk maybe sure. it needs to. Have some of the rules of some of the roles in the numbers in the the Monster Sa- in the in the game stats and I wanNA. Know your class abilities in Europe, your racial traits, a little bit like I I like the the Act I'm listening to your podcasts because I like dungeons and dragons, so give me some of the actual game. Last night needs to be funny, and this has all of those, so you know that's why I like it period full. Stop Stop talking about it. No, because I wanted to talk specifically of fall from grace. Is I think it was like six episode Little Little Arcane here, and it was sort of a a prequel. And I. It was cool because I don't know if I've ever listened to one before I don't think I have all it was was a DM in one player. Yeah, so I've done it when I was first learning to DM I use the MRS as a Guinea pig and ran through. You know a little session well dungeon and. It's fun I met Cova actually just put out a video or a has been working on sort of a series of videos about one player, Wendy, m and the advantages and disadvantages of that and I gotta say It's a lot of fun is probably. Maybe for the DM, it's less fun potential. Excuse me potentially on some levels. But I'd say almost definitely. It's. Never good. Use The word definitely actually, yeah. But almost possibly maybe. There you go really backtracking there It is more fun for the player because they're gonNA. Have you know one hundred percent of the attention and story and everything focused on them. which you know feels good. this one was about as called fall from grace. And, town besieged episode details. What if I click on this? I don't know if it's going to give me any story stuff now. I don't think it is, but that's okay, because then I won't spoil it So. It's a story out today. Read anything down. My notes notoriously, not good. okay one player, one damn fighter night. Okay, so he the the character. The PC player character was a fighter slash night This was his first adventure night, and it involved a HAG stealing children. Okay, and that that's as much as all say other than it was an ns hag. We're the word comes from when it comes to Hague's. Let me see if I can run him down. He Got Sea Hag. Green Hag. GREENHALGH appreciate. Green, egg and NS HAG which is like the dark. Black Evil One. The creepiest of them may be and they're. They're usually sort of free. He to look at like all sort of melted skin, and really gross of of of all the heads that are all gross looking I. think the INS Haggas from my point of view the grossest of them, and you know stealing children as well. That's very nice so I recommend that had. If ever thought of running a DM and one player session, or or being a part of one. Why not listen to this? Hey? Hey Do it. We've got too high in my colon of WHO ended up with the corner. I like to run a colon every once in a while fantasy novels with Jared Logan Yeah, if you're unfamiliar with high and Mighty, John Gabriel his podcast where he'll have on, you know guests to talk about whatever they're passionate about in jared logan as passionate about fantasy novels I listened to every episode of the podcast regardless, but when it is of a subject that I also am passionate about like fantasy novels Of course I'M GONNA. Bring it back here to talk about it and I. Highly recommend you listen to it. You know what I like of this podcast. high mighty lettuce is it's people sharing things. They are passionate about which is I I I kind of feel like. If you break down like a if you say oh, man goes a real nerd. that quite often to mean means they just are passionate, a boat a specific things. be you know fancy novels? Star Trek Dungeons and dragons, these are all my a nerdy flavors this one you know, and and the other thing I liked this episode. It. Even wrote a note down. To who the to do where he spoke of jared, that is nineteen sixties fantasy. They were sort of more pulp novel things found in the back of or found in Comic Books Comic Book Serials. That that sort of thing Sifi. Want sort of delve into that world because it sounds like. Those stories were written differently than even ones in the eighties and definitely ones from today so. I made a sort of a mental note to look into though soul. Tell you what audience participation which I try and fail to do on a semi regular basis. If you can recommend any fantasy from the nineteen, you know like in the sixties of the sort of ilk where it was, you know. Maybe it was in the found. In a serialize dungeons and dragons, book or something like that like A. Sort of a very specific type that he was talking about so if you have knowledge of fantasy novels. Fantasy literature of this area. Hey, let me know to places in located in the show closing. ECHO. Seamless. Moving on to dough boys with Jason Man's Zukas. Yes, so so very good love Jason of Doboy, spoon both together at. The Hiller. This is a great episode just because they're all good. But I think what I like most about it. They reviewed fries like a homemade rise, but if you're unfamiliar with Dope Boys I should say it's a show in which they review chain restaurants, but. Because going out to a series of chain restaurants right now. Probably not the smartest thing to do they are instead reviewing like frozen foods like last episode. They did frozen pizzas. This one was like frozen fries and Tater tots and such. So this one Good for that reason, because was just sort of dumb and interesting to do that and I I like to build a podcast around cooking and eating. Fries. can still good so but but but what I think I like. Most of this episode is the fact that Jason Men Zukas so so very clearly a fan of the podcasts like a regular listener, not only just because he says it. A couple of times that he's a fan and listened to every episode but also because his sort of enthusiasm is high You could tell he sort of excited to be there and it really sort of seeps through to his going, say performance, but just his being on this episode and I want to hear it so I bring it back here and that's what happens an internet intercourse lastly. spoke very briefly I think last episode. In a kind of feel like I didn't do them justice went down a fred. Willard Rabbit Hole, which is easy to do on Youtube and I highly recommend it I, think Fernwood tonight might actually be on you to I think that's where I watched him, and I could be wrong, but the regardless just go watch some of his interviews You could start with if you wanted to do. A real good deep dive Kevin Pollack's chat show. watched his episode. Just everything he is in people speaking highly of him. He's just sort of a comedic genius, but didn't believe that he was the clearly. Just study was sort of a guy. You know doing a job. A being funny quitted. Is One thing which he hadn't spades, but also just sort of a depth of. Explain it. It's like he had a never ending. Ability to pull different things. Pope pull funny out of the Air Yeah Yeah. Yeah Okay let's let's say it that way. Fred Willard had a unending ability to pull funny out of anything. Yeah. Okay. With that we're GONNA end shortish episode which Kinda saw coming doing to the fact that we had. Not much to talk about. How talking duration works. God good grinding because I am John. Folks. It's Nice to be Nice Oh God. Where's the button to be nice to nice to be nice to the is? This is the end of the show. Sincere, thank you for listening. Time to plug something and I do not mean. But.

Episode 27-2 Speed Limit 2: Cruise Control

"Hello and welcome to rhythm and pixels a video. Game music podcast. This episode twenty-seven dash two and we are your hosts my name is rob nichols and i'm cornell it. Every week we listen to great video game music from all consoles and all generations. we pick a topic. We discuss it talk about it. We talked about what it means. Maybe apparently eight eight thirty. Which means i rambled so was long probably about the end. Look try. I'm not trying to push patriotic. But we record a prequel episode if you are a member of our patriot on every week and you can listen to it and i. We didn't have one last week because we ended up recording late with the guest and guest isn't a completely different times on different side of the world and honestly it just a map and there's a lot of stuff going on if you want to hear about all that life stuff you can join her patriotic and and get all that there's also cool things you get a bonus role discord and he also get a monthly livestream recorded episode. Save it for the end of the show just letting people trying to push it all the time but you know. I got a new t shirt ideas. I'm putting out. There and i did make some facebook ads and put a lot of money into it. But i'm just saying. Hey got some t shirts to kinda cool making some sound team t shirts. You'll have a foul calm down. Team t shirt. You're gonna have kanani sound team. T shirt you're gonna have essen case at t shirt if they'll let him sell them. Yeah i don't care. What team are you only now. John pound the garbage kit artists is listening. And you like. Hey man i wanna make art piece of no rob. I would pay you for that. But this that's pipedream because i always wanted to garbage kit made it myself. It's never going to happen but if it did it would be on a shirt. You keep drawing on post it notes and you're throwing on the fridge but it's just not the same if it's not official art do we. Do we give this a. I mean. I'm sure if you're listening to the episode now you realize we'd give us episode of title but we didn't really gives us a title so we end last week's episode having more music than we played because we are interview ran long. That was really really fun. And so we had some extra music so this could be either like partout or arpaio speed speed to the bus. That wouldn't slow down. Which is simpson's referees. I wrote down speeding again. Speeding again was what was the title of speed to counter reeves. Canneries was in it. Was you know it was sandra bullock. I know that crews awfully sandra now must be to cruise control that was a title cruise. Control speed two cruise control right because at the very beginning of the movie. I can't believe i remember this. Because the end of speed the speed universe s s. Because there wasn't there was no time honestly for like a relationship that developed but she makes out with canada reeves and said you know we can have a relationship built on adrenaline. that's based relationship on sex and at the end of the movie. And then the next movie she's on a cruise without kiana reeves because that relationship didn't work out and actually referenced the first light but again it's a boat is a boat giant cruise boat. They couldn't stop. Oh that's why we called cruise control. Yeah it's horrible so bad. I just laugh at the idea that someone thought people love the first movie which i i can knowledge that at least two like people love the first movie. How do we make this happen again. How do we make this absurd. Priddis happen twice to the same person. willem dafoe is in this movie. I forgot and he makes them crazy. Faces seth you want some nightmare fuel. Look in the discord chat. Jesus that guy crazy. Yeah he that was in cruise control. Apparently jake athletes. I've seen that face nightmare always like. I genuinely tend to laugh when films do that when they repeat premises because they were popular with the same cares taken films. The fact that same guy is in three films. Terrible fox terribly bad. Dan like crushing rephrasing. He's a good dad for all the stuff. He goes through to save the caterer satires up. There's a crack in the works if he loses kim three times and has to retrieve from various psychopaths like they should have been one taken movie and beyond that. You should have put a big sign in front. I'd kill people who kidnapped my kid. Don't test me or something. Deters them hammering. I'd might house has a ring now. I could see you enter my door. People tony to put her One of those camera ring things outside to see us taking their signs. And i'm not gonna do that. I'm not gonna put cameras around. I was thinking of putting Warning signs lately we have cameras with is. Now you're just testing people at that point. I mean admittedly cameras at one cameras fairly cheaply. Yeah not all my side. Great what am i gonna do about it. Bam next door. I'm gonna take my shame walks. Dog poop all signed a peace. Now now the sign is covered. And now. you just shouldn't have been thinking about this today. Getting a blueprint map set up like okay. A flow chart thai's to see the be clearly means that w is donkey like no. Don't do that. We like an extra sign up there. That says if you take a sign then we're going to put another one up donate fifty dollars to do but to so. That's the that's the way. I was see you doing at least like that. At least makes sense. I a double down on the signs and just have like like having like extra flags and things and like. Because i don't know man people people need to wake up around here. This neighborhood is not. We're not in the sticks. You got a bunch of little suzy's and they need to wake up like personnel man. I don't know where these lyrics floating around in your head somehow. Just pluck them. I mean if. I'm if i'm able to understand guards bill kid name references. I should be able to pick up some song lyrics here and there to is part of the tree so this i love how listeners like they haven't even gotten to the topic. This is normal for speed two cruise control last week. We had mataya melodist. The nick and got nailed it. His name isn't that hard. I mean it really. Is it granted type. Two billion times on the website. Everything else but Melodist mataya composer of the of the indie game speed limit was on our show last week. Really cool game. Fast paced action packed. His soundtrack is a lot crazy super fast. I'm really into it. And i chose music from games that were kind of that. This game took inspiration from. And i'm going to do more of that. I think my keys speedy stuff is works for me. Yeah speed stuff. Speedy speed speed. Stop as they would say in working speed speed lover. Game's not over throwback. A barrel of i won't be buried children. Bundy will baby whoo mercy. Mercy office as awful as it was it was it was actually gene. I never watched it i. I never watched that show before like when it was on. I was like young enough or my family was like no. That's not for us and we never watched it when you really laid out on. The table is an amazing show. Not everybody likes it because it was very low brow but for the time it did what no other show on. Tv it was like it was like the anti family show kind of like how the symptoms like that to bear with children's live action and it was like the anti family show where it was just like the this is a family and yeah they do have each other's backs sometimes but they're actually a very low brow family. The al and his wife are not particularly in love with each other. The kids are bad is not good kids. They're not teaching any moral lessons on the show and yet somehow it works. It works very well because not every family is perfect and not every family is like trying to teach other families on the block. A lesson everywhere. It's just this guy likes beer. All right. I want to watch the show them. We're we're we're all bad. We're all that just degrees of bad and also tv show come on and also michael jackson was a good thing. He was on He's in a new show. The guy out bundy what's his name. He was on modern family. I don't know if that shows on. I think it went off the air for a long time. He was funny on. I much as i watched that show l. Nielsen good act ed. O'neill thank you ed. Ed o'neill all right. Tell me this comes up all the time. I don't know why. But kirsty always thinks of this name when we're trying to think of somebody else you know who it is. Craig t nelson from coach coach. Yeah all right. Cool all right. I'm glad we got that figured out. Glad you're on the level. Yeah i know about them. All eight hundred and ninety so look when i worked at fun scape which was at the big arcade Entertainment center we have this this movie theater. They kinda movie theater. You would sit in. The chairs would move and we call. It was called. I forget the name. The cyclotron thing them was like it was like. You're watching top gun in the chairs would move and but one of them was racecar driving and there was a little. Tv time this whole story. I'm gonna leave it all. There's a little. Tv that sat outside the movie theater. And it was non-stop which is loop playing previews of the movies. And one of them was hi. I'm craig t nelson actor and race car driver on louie over. I was interested in this ride before but now oh baby raised with craig t nelson has even back. He wasn't special. I remember because when you exit. The theater exited into the the the lower level of the which is all redemption games. Dr crazy trip just picture a person who's like his name has to include his middle initial for starting high. Rob mickelson your scifi writer. And you have to have to middle initials are george are martin revolving reverse remark all right. So i'm gonna play some music from some really cool games. That speed limit clearly adopted the game styles rump. So this is a song from the game super. Hang on this is this is from genesis. Because there's an excellent part of speed limit in which you just jump on a motorcycle and you're just running people off the road trying to get away This is called outright a crisis composed by koichi namiki katsuhiro ashley. Chiro ogawa back. You're listening to the song outside of a crisis from the game. Super hang on. This is from the sega genesis by coaching. Miki katsuhiro hayashi such ogawa. Yeah what's let's we hit that keyboard solo and His cords man the the chords and the court changes in the science. It's emotional. this is an emotional bike ride. You better hang on cry. You hear up it's good. It's really good agree. I was joking with also kind of serious in the break. Where i was like. I think this may already be the pick of the episode. Yeah it's music like this makes me think like if this were composed on the super nintendo would wouldn't have that same feel to it. Just wouldn't be the same clarity of these of these sounds of these keyboards bass sound is a little party. I gotta say it's a little squelch like kind of sound too many beans. Yeah it's it's just too much distortion or something to it could be legumes. I me this is the genesis they could've done a deeper base. You know they they they have. We have the technology on low gobert job during that back that solo when it moves into a key change during the selo. It's just it's just it's awesome. it's just it just. yeah. I don't know mean. I've been thinking about this online lately for good reasons. I was never good at these motorcycle games talking about that. See where you're saying like how do you. How are you ever supposed to get a time extension. Sometimes like what like. What am i doing wrong. But it's not just like let's say for example somebody playing super hang on and it can be crashed into cars and stuff like okay. Maybe next time play. I won't crash in the so many thing. That's one thing but and these guys engaged theoretically you could also have run where you crashed into nothing and you feel as though you're driving supposed to and you still don't get enough time because apparently maybe just weren't driving fast enough or something but the problem is of becoming. It becomes hard to even get what you're supposed to do because you're like i'm doing all right. Things not crashing anything. I'm hitting overturned. But i don't make it in time. What am i supposed to do. It's such a weird thing. And i've never been the guy to finish any of these games over the course of a racing games in three dimensions. I can understand hitting the apex of curves of turns that i have like maximum speed going into corners and or like in daytona usa. To which. I played the tunnel being able to drift and drift from corner to corner but in games like hang on and out run where it's it's not really three. It's hard to know what they expect. And i never cracked coke number got super into it but the last mag vest that we were at. I guess it was twenty. Twenty really played I think it was outrun. I played out run there. They had outrun and it felt really really good to play. That at four car didn't even know what was coming flips over all the time. Yeah lucky i was thinking like you know what i'm probably going to get every disease known to man. I'm gonna sit in this car. And i'm going to play this kid. You convention you just gotta accept that you're gonna get sick. No no one. No one knew the extent of which that would turn that is true. It makes me wonder how much if it was going around much at all that weekend. Even i was listening. I downloaded an old episode of the podcast retro dots. Because they were talking about parasite eve old enough where the hosts of the show talking about going to pax and how half of them caught the swine flu and they're like yeah and they're all laughing. How sick they got palo. You need to wash your hands. I'm like ooh this is different. This is very different now. This is a different feeling. Well i always stand behind the belief for better or for worse usually for better thankfully in this case where as long as you come out esta important book. You've got to come out on the other side right no matter how bad you have the situation. Well i mean i am. I going to say that because sometimes it can be that bad but there are a lot of bastions. You could find yourself where you you fight through it you suffer through it and all this stuff occurs but they want us done and like a month's gone by it becomes stores you tell people and now it's not oh no one's gonna do to pay this bill like man. We couldn't even figure out what to do the pay bills. You know what i did. Do you know what i did. I built a lemonade. Stand and i sold it for pennies on a dollar. We made the money you know. Like i had a buddy who was caught up in those snowstorms down on the texas snowstorm and also like it was like alabama actually snow neighborhood locked out. They had no power for sixteen days in alabama and they powered. Everything had with three car batteries and a converter box. They were struggling. And now we're talking about like you know it was rough. It was really rough. I'm even a little traumatized by but she still tells the stories with like a passion like you won't believe this crazy thing happened. There was like boom due to and i was like. And that's just how it goes. It becomes stories of your life but the important and challenging part is persevering through the experience to get to the cy reconsider. Say i beat that. Yeah now it's a story and we're gonna we're gonna be be. We can beat any anything we are going to get. Beaten is going to happen. I like we got positive cornell. Today it's pretty nice. He's always in there somewhere. Just failed dating outings. What's on standby that's all. I don't blame you. I don't blame you but we got. We got get out here every once in a while. What's here first. Track all right. I'm gonna pick this track because this is the replacement for the one that i was cracked already picked one for the show but thankfully this bad boy was waiting and raring to go. So this comes from the game retro city rampage and it is called blooming super or becoming super liberal. I love the name because it reminds me of that simpsons episode super liberal. Heavy home is composed by jordan. Ray oh all right. We got some good music coming up You sure the navy matt creamer right. yep took welcome back. You're listening to becoming super lemon. Joined the navy by nord. Brad for the game retro city rampage. That's good. This is good that that kick drum is doing some work in this track. Let me tell you. I think it really is man. This is going to have people breaking the steel. I like retro z. Rampage was always was a great gave hisself to really the only faulted even added that had all kinds of cool and lockable but you see most of them because the sprites were so tiny but the play was solid as a rock in the music to match my god. I was so glad. I you know i was like like when i'm really stumped work track track you think of a game that would have the beats. I want for this episode. I just go to room how ow spin around. Look at the shelf. God that attracts for this episode. And it was retro city rampage. Let me go dig. Don't dig into cracks. See what i can find and who boy. This track is a boomer like that way we have a we have a topic. You're like digging in the crates. You're going in looking through all the games in the crate. Digging through cds and the carts. Yeah it's fantastic and that way because like this. The downside to that of course is like if i get to that situation that means that might be like any extract for me. He goes for me to do. Any digging would require me to dig out a deeper box or even hit my emulation station but like as far as like anything from the super nintendo up. Oh anything i owned ever still have it sitting on the shelf in here somewhere. There's gotta look at this soccer really easily be way too repetitive. But throws in that really cool sola with all this pitch bans kind of a bit of the way through. And then he does a separate solo in the bridge back into the loop at that second. Solo is crazy. Cool like it's really clever. Track man he's really mastered this Composition composing solve the software are. This can't go. I love it. Yeah whatever he's using but it's it's really need 'em really really into that it's it's not relying on. You know. sounds that are common or tropes of like you know they are area affected this and that but like it's just really fun really cool music using the sow also for those who listeners. Like oh yes no interest rampage. Don't forget there's also shakedown hawaii out there to forty to dabble into which is like a pseudo sequel s it is a sequel to this game. I forgot it's the same guy but he is old in his. His son is like degenerate in all kinds of stuff. But so i don't know these these. These are kind of like it. Looks like great. That's exactly what they're meant to be there like the old the top damn grand theft auto games. Okay reagan great. I like this. I i play this a lot. I remember being like wow. It's fun in violent without you know but it's so pixellated in small. That goofy fun have matches. Multi-player max word like we're trying to hunt each other in the city but he's helping to these crazy multi car pile ups to block the streets of the guys chasing me. Come around you cut the corner and they slam into the quality cars. You left waiting for like what the heck of carson gotcha sucker is over. It was. It was an innocent time type of funded frolicking with violent but not visualize just have revived just for fun just having fun in our friends with two d cars. A good lord. Things have certainly changed seven Let's go back to To another time. Back when you know america was at war but we were still having fun with it. This is a jungle strike for the second genesis. This is a helicopter action game and brought to you by tops gulf war trading. Yeah right. I think this is a a desert strike. But there's a whole strike series mrs jungle strike and this is from electronic arts. The song we listen to this call tonight. Strike it's composed by. Brian schmidt surprisingly no picket lines. Yes surprisingly we're back. You're listening to night strike from the game. Jungle stretch for the second genesis strike composed by brian schmidt. Strike drake actually in speed limit. Your writing on your motorcycle and you fly off or motorcycle. Land into a helicopter. It becomes like a helicopter action game and a very much uncle strike. So i wanted to pick music from this game now levels rough. Hope shooting from water rights in bridges yet. It's all over the place. There was a team for the atari called river raid. They kind of reminds me. That trivia statement river rate is the only game. My father would ever play to really. Yeah he would she was. She would always try to track down like an. Es version of river that didn't exist. That was a fun. Gun is essentially as essentially a vertical shooter but like it was an and river off the side of of the banks riverbanks forever. And you're going up and just see how far you can get all atari games. Were score attack. But it was really good. It was really well ruled. Well done at the end of those games. He had to be have to lie closest window because to fellows staring. Why are you do that. Just just pose another picture. He'll just bumped up hill. Bumped up under the dome the discussion window so we use on microsoft teams at work. And if you put your chat with somebody and you put like a funny jif in the chat and then like in the conversation ends. The doesn't go away so you'll see a stop talking suddenly like you'll go back to the chat like what was what was such and such saying. Oh my god is huge picture of kermit. The frog like oh now. That's my kind of choosy moms. Choose good gifts. Microsoft's a safe search for gypped so that you could anything right. You wouldn't want looping over and over again at work I never played The strike series. I want to say that. Maybe tried. But at the time when i was younger all i wanted was i kind of instant action acquittal. Remember two games like thunder forest but not jungle strike. I was a little less cobra. Command asi media. Go back and play that somebody. That was my jane cobra. Command was a game that my dad tried to buy because he hopes it can be like a river read. It wasn't for him. I love is the story of your father like chasing the high of river. He never found it which blows my mind. Because i'm positive. There have been plenty of gaze of improved upon river. Read a yet. it just didn't happen for but thankfully his search did lead me to cobra command which was go our covert commander to look it up at some point. Because i'm like he's national name any s it was. You were a helicopter pilot. Amy were flying from left to right sometimes. Right to let anger. The whole purpose of level was to save all the hostages. Sometimes you blow like stations at least underground like secret. Depots the heli tanks and stuff more hidden hostages. But you're that overall goal on every level you could sometimes get missiles and firearms. It was cool. That sounds familiar. It was it was a lot like a like an updated shoplifter like a really like chocolate or extra up which was really lot just defender left right. Rescuing people down. I do because. I feel like i'm confused me. Nope it actually was called cobra command as the ray game and just threw me off. Because i'm mike. And mike infusing cobra commander from gi. Joe with the name of a gang. Call cobra commander game at similar title. I like i'm just picking music from these games. And you're like going crazy on crazies interludes between crazy music kind of chilling up got more of a show by this first time mission undercover net. Stop you grab a net zero okay. Sometimes she'll yeah trust me you we i feel you buddy we we need. We need some. We need some relief. I asked really. I did i went. I went running the other day. And i was like five miles and then i went running yesterday but only two. I was doing sprints. When i got there the park. So like a mile out and was just sprints back-and-forth on the clockworks Because you know no one's playing ask simple silent. It's so different doing that. Level of running compared to distance running is. It just wears me out. I can really feel it on my wife's run like ten miles and not feel it the next day but like just doing sprint for twenty minutes. Meanwhile my full self is fighting to do like one or two miles now because that previous outing has hit me to the like. Maybe that's why it didn't work. I need to be able to run me so now mike trying to make myself run out of. It's it's like. I i really enjoy it. I think i think people figured out. Everyone's got different opinions on how to make running comfortable or how to get into it. You know people who are happy to have a lot of pain. I think because everyone is built differently. Everyone's going to move differently and it's important to understand how your body feels what's good pain and what's bad pain measure in remember folks so i mean i. I'm also talking to you. You know he 'cause at this point you've been you've been exercising pushing yourself long enough. You know what's good painting with that paint true but being able to adjust how you do something to not have pain. Think super important. And i was able to figure that out. Now i just kind of figured out you can kind of walk into these are and remember. Just go go for a run. It's nice outside spayed and new your pet. There are worse things to do that. Run trust me okay cornell. What's your next traffic are. Se this is the on that loud. i think about it This comes from a game. That i also surprised. They didn't pick for the show yet. This is called velocity to ex in the track. Titles yeah i did velocity ultra which is the first game and there was a remix of that of egging not originally this track titled boost and is composed by joris demand boom back. Welcome back boost from the game velocity two x released another. Ps two in vr. Ps four and the bidet. At least maybe. Other systems to composed by george domain i have always been a major proponent or major on fan of the blossomed games i feel like they belong in an episode devoted to speed because the entire premise of the game involves you blitzing through levels to beat the good times but using warp speed white in the ability to teleport through like physical spaces but then velocity to x. added an added dimension. Where sometimes the ship would have to duck in space stations. And the you had to get off the ship and then run through the space station like shooting stuff and sliding dashing across the environment exit. It's got such a cool style. Plus game is really neat. It's very frenetic and it's addictive in the way we're like one more go. I can get a better time on this level. Do better than this. And it's just it's so good track. Oh gosh probably to me is probably the best one on the us. Music is energy has got a ton of energy from the i do not. I recommend this game wholeheartedly. Purchased a physical copy on. ps four. And i was playing at originally on because ps in pla. Ps plus or whatever. But it's worth it worth every penny by play. I'm not paid by celery to say this. It's good though. Oh yeah just go get this one. Just do it. Trust pernell trust personnel. Now he wouldn't he wants to you. You were running for mayor. I'd vote for he. Vote for you. I mean your best friend. Right now. I just i love that base that kind of that that really like it's full like it takes up a whole sound when you're listening to the music like the base is all around. Yeah i love that feeling. It's great. I love this peeling. You've lost that love and p tell us all about frigging All about gum guitar freaks references. The guitar I was watching footage from dance. Maniacs yeah no no. I'm sorry it was It was it was the wrong be monte game on the wrong system unian set was like someone was playing. Dr on guitar freaks machine like it was like this weird stuff. People got hooked up bronx up to the television screen. And i was. I was looking at old guitar. Freaks machine owner back still surprisingly still okay. But it's not as fun as i remember. But it's still okay. I feel like they had to adopt what they did and guitar. Hero rock band in order to sort of like right. That's how you do to make it fun. Yeah well that's the thing. Though like the whole framework the framework was there. They never aptitude like guitar. Freaks was coming out and red. Octane was releasing knockoff. Controller that you could buy in america the import game which is what we then argue. Trollers had five guitar. Free us three. And you're like well. I mean that's just going to add more but in virtually rock guitar hero. Came out with five buttons like it's not just the buttons. It was like in guitar hero. It was like there's only five notes but we emulate what it's like to play all of these notes and and in some of the some of the didn't have strong you can hammer on. it was just. It was much more technical but original guitar freaks was like you know what let's make beat menia on guitar controller just like hitting that the the strum bar over like as fast as he can just keep any of that. He had the hardest songs. Were just a nightmare alley. It was it was almost like proper. The rap like where the hard ones were like kind of out of saint and you had it smack the x x putting as fast as he could but but then later you just learned with. Perhaps the rapper. That you didn't take the expert in twelve thousand okay. I just need to hit it five times within the rhythm and more points than if i hit it every twelve times. Yeah exactly such a regain. Holly scored i know. I just wanted to sound good. I didn't i didn't care how it scored but you've got it to sound good x. To crack in the boat right my last track is gonna come from grappling. Rapper scored on after burner after burner to for the arcade. Harder guy keep up with the sega keeping up with the sega. This is the final takeoff. Composed by hiroshi kawaguchi Matthew eappen nothing. Nothing happened report. A you're listening to finally off by kawaguchi. Burn and he got real synthesizer south saturday's her mother again offers iceland. Count so ohno that. I played on the this could be the i heard. Firm firm firm firm bird for and it sounded great to do like that. Beat the obviously afterburners a franchise that needs to come back but i think they actually did have. It was like after burner. Six constant was one of the leader consul. After burn three was on the megacities cd and on the f. m. towns ellen. I thought there was like a more recent one than like in like really later later. I don't i don't think so. I mean i was surprised to see there was three honestly but now that was not an north american game. Oh you're probably thinking about. I'm thinking about a different. Yeah yeah i think so maybe maybe something else but Definitely combat combat with a new with an i remember playing after burner not one not two but the fresh no one thousand nine hundred dollars. Right what i hear you max. Two thousand six not number six auburn reuss after brenner. A black falcon and then after burner getting some coffee after burner a job interview after it catch a break. Man cannot is just trying to get an another job. Yeah you know like just because the company folded and he lost his last job. The he's he's he's in the office right and you look man. I'm really a great typist. I i'm really good with excel spreadsheets and the boss is looking at a managers looking at him and he's saying but you are an airplane. Hey did i mince words. I said i'm good with spreadsheets. Take my word for it or not. I think you're going to be distracting to the other helicopters in the office. Socially so helicopter spray. She's been playing. But i fighter. Jet can the fighter jet goes you know what are away now. Need any of this better than this jet. Jet fuel is very expensive. Isn't just like a bird can pick up and go bathroom. Sad sad burner dares your dead job for the day. I might do that. Might that might be a t shirt after burner job interview. Sabir said all right. What is your your third track now. Sure and gooden because this might be my third and final use of attract from this game but who knows. The sky is the limit love. This might be the end of the game. This might be the end of of of the cornell. Help me played tracks from this game. We'll see But this is the game hyper voight. Which i was getting reminded of because somebody referenced. The game from the sds call hyper zone recently. That reminds me of hyper void. Anyway hyper zone was a game. I played a lot back to or a little bit my head. i'm digressing aggressive tangent per. Now that's what i do anyway. Track title is called. Discard is from the game. Hyper void is composed by camel bush Whoa third welcome back. You're listening to discard from the game. Hyper void a fantastic fantastic could pose by camel bushwack. It even was an inspiration from you trying to make dialogue of conversation on like a web solid rhythm and paypal chat recently. So i was like. I wonder because people seem to associate like difficult games like in the sense of like i picked hard move. That guy's nightmare mode for ease or and this is i was trying to get people to say. Hey you're just playing a game willy. Nilly no difficulty settings nothing of the sort. You're just playing a game that you like and then you hit a part of the holy crap is tough and you persevered through it and you knock it out. And it doesn't have to be difficult on like the internet's definition of difficult. Just it was challenging for you. And you surmounted the challenge. You know like i had one person come back and tell me a couple of my other game to get both response in the guy. Go i meet this boston. Dark souls without a weapon. Mike barehanded might not what i'm asking you show. You made that challenge up by boston. They're dark souls. You chose to do that. This wasn't a hard game. You've made it hard right. You've made it harder. Like that doesn't count like i get it but it's like i wonder how many people even even when you pick a game up at. You're like i just wanna have woman because you are your every because that's s one half this game you know even when you do that you still have difficulty spikes and games unexpected times really. Whoa i only modified. This probably tested this practical difficulty spike at unnatural. But i like the game so much. I'm gonna surmounted. I'm a bigger. You know stuff like that. I think about I lost my train of thought. You know because. I i immediately started thinking about it right. I remember playing street fighter. Two when i was a kid and being like bam after the fourth fourth or fifth character the game gets really difficult. Siro ramp it. No i'm a very I got an xbox three sixty. And i understood what achievements were And then playstation three acres had trophies and. I'm being really interested in that because it felt like there was a meta game like i was playing a game but then there was also something else behind the scenes where it's like. Oh i can finish the stage. Or i can try to do something extra a little extra trophy to get through it and it seemed like a really good idea to do with like retro games or with classics. That came up not realizing that in the end it was. I don't think being used that way. Now it's like you've finished level three. Here's an achievement. Oh chievements at their core at their base concept. They word ingenious idea. But it's like you were saying they go to different extremes. You'll get things like like you said that the simple ones like you played the game. Here's a trophy but then there's also worse ones. I think where it's like. Here's is absurd. Time sink of challenge. That is less about fun. In more about completions star ocean force like you completed the entire item. Compendium something you never ever reason to do like there's none. You won't even use half the crap in the compendium. it's just a say. Did it like so like on the playstation two. I one hundred percent both kingdom hearts games but there was no achievement for that it was just a little a little Progress bar in the start menu. I'm like now it's there. I take a picture of it with my phone. That game was so fun. Those worth completing. I've loved parts to time. It still doesn't make any sense but man that was a fun game All right so we are going to turn this track down and we're going to get into the bonus round only stream sore. Do this locked boat israel. I don't like really. I think about kingdom hearts i think about breath. I don't why. I honestly what rather keep the bars now. I just think about final form in having to key floating in the air for some reason to telepathically. Why got it in. That's what the best board was. Never talked it. I didn't know what to watch on netflix. The other day and there's they've been replaying wheel of fortune like new wheel of fortune on net flicks. I love. I would watch jeopardy's like let's let's let's check out wheel of fortune. I'm watching fortunes. Thousand younger surprised salon on. It's still pat zajac vanna white which is crazy and and at the end of every episode. There's like a a they call it. The bonus round say i e rate the play the bonus round and i'm like all re-lane for some remixes we took this old puzzle and remixed that was backwards one final spin of the wheel. And there's like one last puzzle in the game but ours but ours. I find it funny that that wheel of fortune probably for me not just for me by bet tons of other people. We were fortunate to find how you play word games. Yes forever because you always focus. Rs does time to buy a were a by a letter or a letter or knock. Its michelob. people can't use letters in the bonus round you you get like four or five letters to choose. Yeah they give you ours changed it. Yeah they know they give you those now. Getting always gave you or they. They didn't always back circus like in the eighties and nineties did back in the eighties and nineties. They started that but before that they didn't. Wow so i guess that's probably what people were like. They probably took the most commonly chosen letters. Just take the dr letters. Anyway are bonus round where we play covers and remixes and arrangements on our theme. And i'm going to go back to the episode of wheel of fortune now. I'm going to go back to spy hunter. Because i think though the race the car chase scene and speed limit isn't exactly like spy. Hunter is kind of close up. It's a mix between spy hunter and an original grand theft auto. Which i think is really cool. So this is really helps. Identify multiple towns right crashed into the back of a truck. Yeah there's a lot is a lot of crashing into trucks as what but this is again An arrangement of the original Theme from spy hunter. And i can't remember the title of the music off the top my head but it's not from the games by hundred bits from television series But this is a track called second chance from spy hunter from two thousand twelve. Which i believe is based on the movie that dwayne the rock johnson was in. I'm not sure on that one. But this is from the two thousand and twelve spy hunter. This one's arranged composed by ryan status into this whole song. I can't help it. Has one of those beats where you just kind of water. Doot doot through a perfect. Yeah i completely forgot that this was. This is more less bus by more jet set. Radio do do yeah. This was a second chance from the game spy. Hunter from two thousand twelve that almost composed by ryan hunter and some samples from the original theme. Which was the theme to. Peter gunn composed by henry mancini but less of an arrangement and more of a more like a sample new dot dot dot dot dot dah. Data gathered advocate. Definitely a chasing going on with this track. I have a weakness to this sort of thing. When was dot dot dot and i'm gonna do is just how it goes up now. Madoukh it up. Hey dude crepe. I heard i i was. I was on youtube. And one shared the pete and pete Theme song again. And i have one of the best of all time. I haven't heard that. In so long. And i i listened to it. I was like wow. This is still a great song. Polaris i still know off the top of my head and to they they be considered shoe gaze. I don't think so. I don't think that's shoe gaze. But maybe maybe the ban has some tracks like. But i don't think the pcp theme song would be okay. It's mighty strange. Do you live in happe- lead do got a bunch of were tier is really good. It's a great somma. let's do it again. All right What is your bonus round track. I really wish it was the pt theme song. But since this is a video game music podcasts. it can't be so may maybe the ending agee be close out track who the heck knows mental of the pete and pete theme saw appleaday wrenched on the previous speed episode. Originally was shopping around for a overdrive. Ostry makes said screw that. We'll gators better in this instance but tis we decide to fold a complete the actual topic as a whole. I figured i had a second shot at this. So i'm going with this overdrive ashes arrangement done by the artist res or view reserve. I think it's burris varez. There you go. okay. I'm sticking with it. I ve arrays Room right i love that though. As dow's great yes did overdrive ostrich all kinds of justice so that was the overdrive ostrich arrangement from the game. Mega man x two remixed arranged by ras raise view. I was saying ribs. I had to be. I had to say yes. This blew my mind when i heard it for the first house again. Go with this. This is really good. He like you mentioned earlier. I guess he plays at the time in the way that some really high would not have seen come and you can Find more about him at a view res- if the u. r. e. z. Dot com and they have a lot of arrangements from games. I wouldn't expect abba. Docs tnc surf designs. Thrilla gorilla baby. Yeah that's amazing out. Of course that is really So go to that and and the website is very simple. It's like here's my music. Download it it's i love that you also of course. He has class of debate because went off. Yeah team has awesome right. You know but like thinking about. Tnc surf designs. But of course of course of course glass teammate. Everyone knows it. But for more information on the bonus round and for more information about these artists rhythm and pixels dot com. We'll have links to all of the artists bank camps and some clouds in their websites everywhere we can go and get the music by the music and support all of these artists. Talk me into. It's so good. Thanks for joining us on episode. Twenty seven dash two of rhythm and pixels. This is our speed limit to cruise control on the topic twice in a row with the same cast. Same same cast but like some of the main actors. Look a little different. Maybe they were this stunt doubles from the first movie. The stunt double from the first podcast. I think the glasses. But we're not We're not ending on video game music. We are ending on on. Hey sandy by polaris. So i'm sure some of you will enjoy this music but to have this kind of role in the back wonder if anybody how many of our international listeners know this song how pete air out of the country or not i was. This was this show. Big was a big. It was big issue in the states. Like i didn't get into it so much. Because i just hate it. Live action shows back then was the guy was like if it's not a cartoon i don't care but it was a me later. It was so strange it was so like it. Just as who were living happily the rains and everything was craziness short. It was very very short and then This theme song was really catchy. I remember there was like a cheerios box or something that i was able to send away for a cassette tape of the song and i think keith from the bgn jukebox from back in the day. She she back in the day throwing the old podcast which go. Definitely if you like video game music and podcasts. Check them out. She did the same thing where we talked about this. And she was like oh. I haven't seen cassette tape. I'm sorry i wish i knew where that was. Never find it again. It was so awesome though. So i got back in the day. 'cause you'd think about now. Most shows even have theme songs anymore. Now's scottish was the most memorable part. That's the exact same. That was exactly no no. I was saying that not this morning when i was listening to the song. Bow saying that Two nights ago when we started watching the nanny on on this plex. Ever which i haven't watched i watched it when i was on hair but the nanny drescher that even something that needs long theme song like three minutes and it tells you the entire story of their lives. No wonder she's become a navy. You'll find out every week they do not. It's not a bridge. It's just goes and they don't do that anymore. Young to get that. We don't get mr belvedere dropped kicking jackets like we used to now. Just erie go next episode. Start this thing. New more invigorates even root for advertisement. 'cause half these shows just go right like netflix. That there's no there's no commercials they're still commercial breaks for some of these shows us because it's nice to have like set pieces in television shows i. Here's a senior team. Probably commercial in between but commercial. I catch like athletes messages. Those be right back just wiped off the screen back to bone. I'm here guys couldn't outta. Why are we watched a lot of that show and it is a lot of. It is not good for me but that one guy from actor i never remember his name from freaks and geeks the kid he played a he was on the show for a long time and now played the love interest now. He plays a psychologist criminal psychologist. And he's really really good and he's really good in the show he carries show from for me anyway.

Chances are unless you're some sort of savant or just gifted in that regard. You're gonna fail three times in failure. Frigging sucks it burns. It hurts it makes you want to eat. You know doreen fruit as retribution for the frustration. That comes with it but no day is worth hanging in there for something you genuinely want because it just makes the eventual success that much more. Gratifying i guess is a good word for. He'll great to succeed. After much trump much after many trials and tribulations they'll obviously succeeding immediately also really awesome. But it's something to be said about. Just like i said earlier in the episode about you know starts out being a pain in the butt and then we you succeed. It becomes a story lake man. I had this really bad attempted. This thing was sucked but then success baby. So star south frustrating starts out of paying the but it becomes a story and hopefully with a happy.

Let's make some noise. Everyone's talking. Illo burden about me and him speak. Skeoch? It really gets inside him. You say that this voice that you think you're hearing is coming to you from your genital region. Even speaks French. It shows it's on their minds. Thank Jared fakes orgasms, pardon me. What let's real nice sure was earth. It's about communication. So glad you called. I grew that BUSTER it's about reaching out. Everyone needs a little Pat on the ass now. And then. You really see what men seen women? It's not sick. It's not saying, it's so honest if you even soon. Don't you look special incredible for sure here? If you keep it up how it shows how sensitive men really are push comes to shove thumper. Did let me take you for a ride. It's touching. It's moving. He really opened up. Griffin. Dunne Carey Lowell. Me and him the comedy that hits below the belt. All certainly will look my boyfriend differently now being here now available on videocassette, all my friends have to see this, absolutely. Time is Mr Adam Spiegelman. You can't keep me down was that you or was that your penis talking? He will find out this week. We are looking at me and him directed by Doris Dorie and released in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight the film stars Griffin Dunne as Bert rutan z a man who has a very active relationship with his penis on the day of his thirty fifth birthday. He begins hearing directly from his penis voiced by Mark linn Baker cousin Larry himself. Burt is an architect who's trained to get his plans for new marina belt. He's overly dedicated to his work while his penis tries to get him to care more about the carnal pleasures in life. I'm not sure if there's anything to spoil in this movie or how easy it is to find these days, but consider this your spoiler warning. So Adam you actually requested that we do this as an episode. I'm very curious. When was the first time. I saw this. And obviously, you must have loved it. Yeah. It was the eighties on VHS video store. I think it was last time on your show as showed a lot of weird movies. But I think mostly I wonder one time, and it was a salesman pressuring the guy behind the counter to buy all these bad films. So I think that's why they had so many cool alternative weird films. But me and him kept showing up on all these publications. You get the video store upcoming movies. And it was like a going to be a big deal. This film is coming out. I think I might have been the only person rented it. I know it's supposed to be bad, and I do love bad movies for being bad. But I thought it was good. I mean, there's a lot of bad parts, and we can talk about it. But I really enjoyed this movie. I really I think this is a sixteen year old. Holy crap. I relate to this thirty five year old guy. I think more than than I could when I was thirty five seventy and Heather I heard a rumor that you absolutely adored this fell. Rumors are false. Oh, I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I totally love your backstory with this. 'cause you know at IT is the child of of the VHS aid someone who came of age like I was all about just finding weird. You know, the weird or the batter and there are some like lowbrow type movies absolutely doors. My, you know, we've covered some of them together that, you know, my quote for this movie is snoop Dogg once said that he has no love for hoes. And I actually have a lot of love for hose. But I didn't have any love from his Mathie load over rose. This could be a cool cat a point counterpoint, like a totally respect your opinion. And I actually am looking forward to hearing like your take from it and your sue Mike sucking. I think this could be very healthy experience. While I think what you said Adam is kind of telling us for as as a sixteen year old you enjoyed this or could relate to it a little bit more than you could as. At actual thirty five year old. This reminds me a lot of the Netflix series big mouth where the young boys. The pew Besson preview Bessant boys where and girls there urges are personified by these Harry demons of did you just go me, the hormone months to. I'm not a fairy. I mean sure folk around the dudes, but I'm not a fairy. And that's kind of what it reminds me of the humor and everything is very adolescent. Let's say so probably as you all maybe to necessarily identify with Griffin as much Griffin Dunne sex machine. Apparently, he can bed any woman in the world in this movie, which I just find remarkable when I think of sex usually Griffin Dunne as the first person who pops into my mind, he's just dripping with it. What do you think of sex Griffin? Don is the. Best friend of the guy, you think of it. It's so crazy that he turns on his libido. And it just turns out either since he turn on his libido. Everyone wants to sleep with them or women have always wanted to sleep with him. He just didn't know it might are. You are you saying that you feel like Griffin Dunne should have been the original choice for big Jim Slade and Kentucky fi movie. Oh, yeah. He's that kind of sex machine. Like, he just parsley the wall like a collide man look at low Moluccan. There are two things that got me to watch. Maybe I'd never even heard of this film till my two might you. Brought it up to me. And I was like I love Griffin Dunne, and it's gotta talking weighing in at. I'm like okay on sold like at Griffith done. I mean, he's great. I mean, I think he I think he gives it his best in this. I kept thinking they're like sex machine. I kept picturing like different actors though in this role watching it like I thought like it will point like what if Charles Napier was how ethic that have been. It would have been completely. Bay. But yeah, you know, be jealous. You're the good old boys. Yeah. That's right. I'm talking about Gilroy lead singer drive. The one of urban interesting. I mean that guy is like a gruff, dude. One of these guys always plays the heavy the mafia guy, or you know, the name four, sir that would have been different 'cause you don't expect like it wouldn't feel like a goofy fun rom com. It would it'd be like a guy woke up one day and his penis have get out there. Maybe darker should nNcholas cage being the remake. Oh, wow. As the penis asked. The penis be like Eric Roberts should be the voice of the penis. I don't know if you've ever seen a talking cat question. Mark. Oh, yeah. Does the voice of the talking cat? But it sounds like he did it into his phone at a bar, you know, last minute and send it in. Basically did I mean not at a bar, but at his house, the director came over and just recorded him talking the role Hoover talking. Yeah. Yeah. It shows you can talk. But only once I don't make the rules film. But let's this movie the same thing. Mark linn Baker obviously, not anyone's first choice. His audio is. So it's kinda like a talking cat version. Like, it's so not instinct with the movie, do you know what I mean? It sounds like they was an afterthought it they know effort to make same track. Gopher it's always good. When you've been fighting. Refining. I couldn't tell I thought the fight was over. I'm not a salad bar. You can help yourself to whenever you get hungry. He never shuts up. Okay enough. Can we have like five minutes without you talking? Maybe he was the word late. He he sounded he had the moist of a penis that should never get lay. Like he does not deserve to get lay ever at times. It angered me. Like, I literally got angry because I'm whiteness, man. You know, fuck this guy like he's terrible late. Yeah. Griffin Dunne's like knives. And he's charismatic you Weicker Fontan Martin Baker. Maybe he's done some good stuff. But I'm like he was the second banana and perfect strangers like count cousin Valk would have been better choice will move every year is a great movie. He's mid I just don't know. You know, obviously is what it is would bulky not available. I mean, he could have done it that would have been more fun. I if my penis talked to me, I don't know. If I wanted to be whining, dude, you have a great life. You clothes all the time. You're you're supported all the time. He's only taken out once in a while, you know, your wash. I don't understand what the way you complain. Who would you want divorce your private part like what actor maybe Sam Jackson, though? It'd be good. That's ragged. I'd have to get season title. I wanna show you violators. Nash defeats beat that. I would be honoured. If my lady parts at the voice of says, it's not almost wanna change mine to her relish as but I won't be army zombie babies. Oh my God. How about you, Adam? Well, I'm blanking on the name because I'm a hundred years old. But in the stars born who played a the lead, Bradley Cooper and who's played his brother. I mean Sam Elliott. So you know, he did like a Sam Elliott impression. All time. Yeah. I would want him doing the Sam Elliott impression because I feel like Sam Elliott was voice. My penis be way too intimidated because that's like a real, man. But Bradley Cooper doing it a person Asian of him that that's like on a good level. Like a reminds me of him. I feel cool. I don't feel uncall-. You know what? I mean. I still rule everything my brain could still take over. But yeah, I think that be Bradley Cooper doing that impression. When are they going to do the remake that has Kevin Hart with the rock doing the voice of the penis, Kevin Hart gray narrows, it could be so physical just keep thinking of all of me. This is like a perverted all of me with Steve Martin. It is so much all of me, especially the. Arguing with the voice that only you can hear. It's so weird that he's talking out loud. But the Pena's isn't voices in his head. Yeah. So why does he do that? Yeah. And in the script, the he talks out loud to the penis all the way through until right around the third act, and then it becomes Burt in over talking to the peanuts. And I don't think that ever happens in the movie, he always talks out loud to the Pena's. And then not too often. Do you get like hilarity ensues where there's a couple scenes where he will talk out loud to the penis. And then other people will be around like he's in a bathroom and somebody's in a stall and comes out, but it's still not what you would think as far as like who are you talking to or you know, who does number two work for those kind of things you don't get a whole lot of that kind of stuff which is weird. You would think that would be maybe the third joke that you go to didn't dig advantage of that. You're right. It'd seem like a loss moment is almost like somebody said, hey, if he's being alive, wouldn't you get caught? And they're like, oh, yeah. Level it's fix that. And show that is not a big deal instead of making it part of the movie and making a funny scene is people don't care that he talks himself bird isn't the high-powered job of being an architect, which I think for why was the number one movie profession that you could possibly do. It's really funny because next week we're going to be talking about a movie called heaven from New Zealand that came out in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and our main character, and that is an architect. So that's like the thing that you do if you don't know what your main characters gonna do you make him an architect? And then you also give him the big pitch and have hilarity kind of ensue around that. I mean, as I was watching this movie, I just kept thinking of other movies, but I couldn't really put my finger on exactly which movie I was thinking of because I just have seen. These story beats being. I used a lot in other films. Be it's like the whole idea. He gets up in the morning. He makes this wish for his Donna's cake. His penis starts talking to him. I'm guess I'm thinking like a freaky Friday or more of a vice versa, like father like son or eighteen again, kind of thing happening there, and then goes in and he does this pitch. He kind of lets his penis takeover a little bit. So I'm thinking maybe how to get ahead in advertising. And the he comes up with this whole whole idea of doing a like Venice by the the south pier. I guess in New York and talk about uncomfortable. Now in retrospect, there are so many shots of the twin towers in this movie almost like all the scenes of them looking at the the area where they're going to build this this new marina, the twin towers are behind them at all times. Working go wrong is what you're saying. The thing that I did appreciate this about this movie. A lot is the supporting cast in some of the faces. There are in the supporting cast. I mean, of course, we've got Craig t Nelson as the big boss, and then the very attractive Kelly Bishop as his wife, if you look at we covered another movie with this gentleman, the American astronaut, but Rocco Sisto professor s has from the American astronaut is one of his co workers, and then Blinken you miss him almost as David Alan Grier. As the guy who gives him this apartment before he moves out of town. And I would think that David Alan Grier would have been a huge presence in this movie. But I guess this was just too early for him or something, but he's in and out of this movie in five minutes and actually made me a little sad because I love David Alan Grier. And he's sumit's Brighton. Everything. I mean, you would have been a better choice for the penis voice. Like, he's funny. I mean, that's the thing about this film is one of the things I will say about it is like I mean, most of the cast right main. And supporting I mean, you've got some fantastic actors known on Ellen Greene as verts wide. She's fantastic Ellen Greene. I always liked and stuff, but she was just never in enough things. Like, I was so happy when she showed up in pushing daisies a few years ago, I say a few years ago, it was probably like ten years ago, but I really enjoyed her. She was fantastic and things like little shop of horrors and the cooler just everytime. She's unscreened like her. And I wish that she would have been a bigger actress we're going to independent film when I knew it was a cold states control. And she was in it. It was a low budget movie. And it was a weird thing where they part of the movies dirty Polaroid's resolve. And if it is I just remember him making such a big deal. Outta me getting these handing them right to him that they wouldn't go anywhere. The dirty pictures of Ellen of her. But even though it's using the movie. So anyway, just so weird to see a big movie star like that in this low budget film. But yeah, she's a great actress, I don't know why you know, why she's bigger as well. But as she gets these roll the only role she got are these like the whiny wife roles like this role is a thankless shitty role. I mean, even skip to the end he doesn't realize he loves his wife. He realizes he I if you optimistically, he realizes is not about fucking every woman in Newark, it's about his wife, but he never find that out is just like everyone dumps him. So he goes back to his wife. And so she doesn't she never gets that sexy role. You know, I I think that's part of that's probably part of it. And maybe she'll pushing daisies. It seemed like just such a perfect spot for her. And I don't get why the penis can't remember her name. He keeps calling her Anita. But a real names the net. I love that. Because he doesn't wanna fuck her. He wants to fuck every other woman around. He doesn't want to sleep with one woman that he's supposedly with he wants to screw around. So he doesn't he doesn't mean anything to him. And they took out the one joke. There was a running joke in the screenplay that was whenever the Chinese delivery man shows up that birth kid burnt junior BJ, and they never make a joke about BJ that BJ would go running to the door yelling daddy. Daddy. Daddy in that the kid actually looked slightly Asian. They cut that joke out, which I was like, okay. Well, if it's good for the goose, it should be good for the gander. But no, she is just this woman who stays home and pines for Burt through so much of it. And when ever she shows up she is upset and she's treated like shrew. And it's like, yes, she has every right to be upset about this whole situation. The way that he moves out in order to work on this pitch in that every time she comes over. He's up to no good. And when she finds the earring in his bed. It's she blows up. And it's like, yeah. I completely understand. Why she would I don't think that she's a shrew or a heartbe, but that's the way that she's portrayed in the film. Now home bag of the you know pain is not getting a name. Right. She's high. I mean, it's not just that. She's I mean, she's also like this great supportive partner that puts up with him whining, and he leaves reload with their little shit or kid 'cause that kid his hair are bowl. I kept hoping that there'd be this like this twist. Rely all of a sudden might her vagina starts talking to her. And she's like, I'm gonna get some. She goes on this big mess, Selena like style like sex bankwest where she's like, that's right part. I'm banging every hot delivery guy on this boulevard, buddy. Like that. And it's just like an ends with him crying. Like, I dunno. That's that would have been my version. She is in the given her something more than just like what comes to the apartment that. Oh, that's a great turn. She's so sexy and realizes she sex him. He goes back to her. But of course, we had another forty five minutes to kill who couldn't do that. I'm glad they didn't do the Chinese food delivery joke district. It seems out of place. Like, it's funny. But it would just screw up the plot of the film, and I feel really really weird that they would put that in because you just changed the whole dynamic of the movie his Pena's wakes up and says, hey, you should start cheating on your wife. Who's obviously been cheating on you. He's he he can't be forgiven for what he did. You can't have an out like, you know, some movies. There's Sandra Bullock, whoever it is. And they made the other guy even though they have a boyfriend and they fall in love, but they make the boyfriend or the husband abusive or alcoholic or something. So you can forgive her for cheating on him. So I don't think he deserves an out like that. Or if you're Meg Ryan. The other guy has allergies or he might mispronounce a word or something. And then that gives you perfect right to go off with whoever, you know, Tim Robbins or whoever that other guy. She is high standards. She's the worst she thinks she's low maintenance, but she's actually high maintenance. So the whom I you know, what I would have what she's having not the other person. I was very surprised to see in here is Robert Lazardo and people, you know, who Robert Louis Suharto is you just probably don't know his name. And in this movie, you wouldn't recognize him because this is before he shaved his head and has neck tattoos. He shows up in so many things now as this like really mean shallow kind of guy beautifully a drug dealer. He was in a lot of oh gosh. He's been a ton of TV stuff, and he shows up in movies and in here. He's the office guy with the white shirt on no visible tattoos. I don't know when he got his said twos. And he's like the crude young office guy who's talking about pumping and dumping girls. But yeah, believe it or not he is the guy who. Looks like he stepped right out of I don't know anarchy, what sons of anarchy? He's the old. I never thought he was at old. I didn't realize either when he started talking. I was like his voices familiar and then. Yeah, I I looked it up. And it's like oh sure enough. That's the same dude. Look at the eighties movies who's in hard to kill panatela. Get killed renegades. True. Blood mean him I was in short circuit to and moving another terrible film like he just he had all those films. He said, I don't care put me in it Waterworld. I drop zone. Waterworld automating he's slated to be in like a dozen movies that come out over the next year and a half. Yeah. I saw I am debate is all red with pre production post production, filming. That's amazing. Braille flowers push comes to show they come from. I'm over. He'll play stays. There's really not any nudity in this movie, which is kind of weird because I mean, you the eighties were kind of Scott fertile time for sex comedies and a lot of, you know, have like at the very least awful snus. Like, yo ends. This is Tammy for being maybe about a talk in Pena's pretty tame hovering. Louis this up. It is a good Wayne. Of heads in nineteen eighty six when I saw this film. I rented a movie from the video store called me and him about talking Pena's. I bring it home. Nobody's home to watch. It. You're sixteen years old. There is no nudity in this film. What is going on that is not fair in the first half hour of all these films. There's some kind of nudity for no reason. And then you keep watching hopefully, they'll be more nudity. That's the it's an agreement. We have I pay three dollars for a terrible film. And you give me a little nudity. That's it east at least get a single do. I mean at least boob. Yeah. That's all. I'm asking for forum. Sixteen years old Abu would have been fine for about a week of it. Okay. And also like, do you think you're watching something good, you know, a German director o- German director, and then, you know, you get a little nudity, and then you go to bed, but no, no nudity. It was a real film. Can you fucking believe it? We had the penis has certain superpowers that it reveals as we go along. It's kind of like the the suit in the greatest American hero. Like as as we go along. We learn more powers one of those is to allow Burt see everyone or every woman, I should say. In lingerie. So yeah. No nudity, except there's a nun in the scene in. Apparently, the penis doesn't wanna show what another looks like lingerie I found that really strange quickly responded that first of all describing your is is like the suit in America's American heroes. The best description I've heard who over time in your life. You learn more uses for it the reveal do, that's that's brilliant. I took that seem as again at a sixteen year old point of view. Your imagination puts everyone like he wasn't really magically taking it once close up he was leading his imagination encouraging his imagination to look at everybody naked. Then maybe I was just projecting. But that's what I saw the pain is like just imagine all these people naked. I can do that for you not naked. But in lingerie. Oh, yeah. In luxury sixteen and then later on he reveals that he knows every woman's name, which is really kind of strange to that was. I hate it. Is this Dom? It's like, okay why? Sure, whatever dude, you know, their names, like don't know, Ellen greens. Yeah. Hot s you don't know her name, you you don't see you don't give us nudity. His come on. Like, if a penis, you tear dudes lie admitted women are saying like if you're like looking at somebody like Alice's personality, you're not going to be tasteful about it. It's gonna look like a hustler spread probably at the very least penthouse minus the vassal lean winds. But you know, it's just it was just the whole NATO. He knows their names. It's like, okay. Whatever like this is, you know, I I started that this may be just a camps. But did he know their names didn't Hilo wounds? Name those wrong the first one. But then after that it was right every single time. And then it's basically it was just a bridge to get us to the the the the boss's wife. And then take us off on that adventure, this whole movie if feels very much like it's like little vignettes rather than necessarily a full plot. Because it's like okay now, I'm over here, and I'm going to have sex with this woman or now I'm over here. And I'm going to have the the flirt with this woman. In it, occasionally, these things will meet up like that. He meets this woman Janet in this records room, and he starts giving her a foot job, which I it's very very uncomfortable. Her outfit is very uncomfortable. It's very nineteen to ABC's fashion. And yeah, he gets his foot Kashi clamps his foot in there in. Yeah. It's it's it's not good. But in she shows up later on and she will show up in his fantasies. We get several fantasy sequences again. Nobody's naked. It's usually just you know, like, oh, hey Burt. Your wife's on the phone. And that seems to be the recurring joke when it comes to those. She ends up being with Craig t Nelson. So Craig t Nelson is cheating on his wife. And then when the wife wants to cheat with Bert. She has this the wife has this whole thing of wanting to role play and apparently. Role play is a bridge too far for Burt. He cannot handle that though it is. I wanted to the peanuts. All of a sudden, it was like ages or you're older than the peanuts have standards, which is weird because it's a penis. Isn't that what this whole movies about doesn't anything angered me? That was many one of many things that angered me in this movie was that, you know, he's been you know, just weighing in and banging random ladies at homey. And all of a sudden now like this beautiful woman, who's maybe all wet realistically probably ten years older than Burr like she's not even at all that older. We've had him make menopausal jokes. She's like, oh it gets hot in the fall. And like that's is she going through menopause per in. It's like you. You saw your terrible penis. And then all of a sudden he's like, oh my God. She's her if she's wanting to do light role play late pets, you know. It's not she's all like, hey, take a dump on me per light. You know, like, she's just I can't I can't rip this movie that penises. Terrible. And he's a he's a shame. Shame the penises of. Did you other the scene was funny? The music he comes in there. They they build it up with the music, and he's got the outfit on and they made like that was a silly thing. Like would seem like the film directors like oh limit is fun here. Finally, well, and it was fun at first. And then it's like WALDO, no, I can't do this. I know he should have just done. It did not do it because he loved his wife, at least that would have tied into the ending. But he didn't do it. Because he's seen as too good for all of a sudden right because he's having sex with the girl from the aerobics studio he's having sex with the it's not it's like one of his assistants at works of get the nice sexual harassment stuff going on there. Does he ever nail Janet? I can't remember. No, he never he never sleeps with Janet. Because. Right. I first he tries, but she just wants to be friends. And then when he finally tells us penis to the buzz off, and he gets. Libido any acts like real human beings are at treats are like human being then she wants to super them. And then he can't because that reminded me of the movie bedazzled where he just he can't close the deal be dazzled with such a better movie. Besides being a much better movie. And of course, I'm talking about the brand new Frazier version. Whoa, that's cruel. How dare you? I'm very curious. Adam how many times have beautiful women asked you to just sleep with them in by that. I mean, just sleep with them like be in the same bed with you. But NAT actually have intercourse hurriedly. I'm the only person has happened to cause. Yeah, that's happened. And I thought and I thought I'd seen as realistic. 'cause you think like I really should try something. But there's not try something. Should I try something? I jerk non for trying something. And then you wake up the next morning. You guys tried something? Or I moved to New York after college. And I was in this comedy troupe. At news is beautiful woman. We hung out a lot, and she I was living in Brooklyn. She live right in mid town. On right on Broadway. Right rolled Abro theaters. Are as she called me up at like ten thirty at night. And she said I want you to come over and sleep with me. I'm alone. Scared lonely, whatever. And like sure she's you know, I sleep in the nude, and but I just want to sleep. And I was like, yeah. Right. I got there. See greets me at the doors opens the door by the time. I get into bed. She's passed out asleep completely naked. And I just like I'm like, I can't believe I just took an hour to get here because it's the train. And I remember this is a good look at her. And I think in I've fallen for this twice. There's something wrong with me. And then just went back to bed. I either that was another funny legit scene where it's like one part of us says, oh, she doesn't want to sleep with the other side says why would you have you over, you know, you got to at least try? So I don't know Heather has been at issue even over never met. If I can ask you about that. I would feel weird about being like a teddy RV set certainly get like, hey, platonic NAN hell with me, Venice Lear sexy. Outfit, and I've never done that to somebody. I wanna judge anybody. That's done it. I will save at that saying I thought I was kinda like my grandma. This is you know, I mean like if she was wearing like, dirty sweat hands. And like Garfield teacher, then I'd be like, okay? Yeah. She's new to the city. She's just mon- company. You know, maybe some creepy. I was falling early. You know, like I could suspend disbelief, but she's all this Mary pretty light blue suit of painting and. We're not going to judge. But it's weird. But then like she's sleeping, and he starts trying to touch her. I'm like, okay. His Dixie gamer gator, basically sticks a future. Like if it's if this Pena's was a personality would have a fedora in a neg- beard. Terrible terrible you'd be harassing women on Twitter at had been like a tip my hat to you Milady. You like that? I've terrible. Would she also knows? This guy's been a pig since he met him day one like the they don't mention that. They she grabbed his foot, you know, when they're in the library when she meets at work. I don't know. That's just because there's a plot device rose in eighty single. She just didn't feel comfortable there. I don't know to seem like a weird thing disturbed nor and then vertebrae go yell go out with you. Yeah. I think they're supposed to be a lot more sexual politics going on with this. I mean, really this could be a really good plot here to have the way that she vacillates between Bert. Maybe she finds him attractive at first. But. Then when she learns that he's only a peon at the business. And then, you know, she's going to go for Craig Nelson who's the Voss, but then Birt's on the upswing. So maybe she'll go for him. It could have been an interesting character. Like kind of a, you know, like a star fucker kind of thing. But that just never really happens in when she comes in. And she finds Bert shipping. cO resign. It's like, okay. Is she upset if she not upset what's going on here in the way that he ends up like because the the the dick obviously just keeps talking to him and saying like, hey, you need to fuck in order to have creativity. And you know, let let's go out and let's fuck now. And there's one part where he's like, no, I really need to buckle down. Here. I need to work on the stuff, and then he ends up having sex with Corazza on. And then he is blowing off this really important meeting. And you would think that that would be immediate grounds for dismissal. But he ends up not getting fired for this really is kind of strange like there are moments where like even earlier he's talking with Eleanor, and he refuses an advanced by Eleanor, and you think okay. Yeah. Now, he's going to get fired. No. Instead, he ends up getting his own office. It's like what is going on here? So they are moments in the film that just don't I mean, we're talking about a movie about a talking penis. But you would think that still they would kind of abide by some sort of logic. As far as you know, if you punch somebody in the face, then they're going to get mad. But in this movie doesn't necessarily act that way. Now, there's a lot of things that get that don't really get explored that you think pay one or maybe if they should've maybe this would've been a better movie late Adam to your point. I thought that was kind of weird to you that the whole way, you know, when they meet officially I can think okay, she got to confront him. We're paying or you know, what it's like now. And then like, then, you know, not too long to that. She was like, I was stay the night with me. And it's like. This dare just tried to put his foot in your area, which is gross in a you know, because you don't know this man over his foot span it's been sweating in Hugh, New York City. You don't want that in your business Carl grows, you know, a it's I think that was just like one of my main one of my many issues, this film is that there were so many things that could have been sorta further fleshed out at like, you said like the politics. That just it's kind of half ass. You know? Yeah. I mean, this is a good time to speak about this nineteen eighty eight. I mean, I'm trying to think of when something like a working girl was was out. But like the idea of. Nineteen Eighty-eight actually. So it seems like this would have been a good time to talk about women's liberation and women's place in the office and made Janet almost more more of the main character or Eleanor, but these three very what they should be strong women characters Annette Eleanor, and Janet they end up just kind of falling by the wayside and really births. Peanuts who is an unseen character, basically ends up taking center stage. So it's really an odd. Mix of things. What does he trust in ready? When the last time she met him who's trying to put her foot foot up her skirt now, she's like, oh, you'll see my bed or not trying anything. Yes. She's a little foolish that way. She's good for plot. That's what she's like what works to move this plot alone. I'll do it. We never do to your point. Heather we never hear women's genitalia in this movie at all. And there's even a moment where right at the end of the film. The penis turns on his other superpower, which is to allow Burt to hear all of the other penises that are in the row, and I was thinking he's going to allow you to hear all in the genus. But there's even one point in the movie where Burt ass the penis if women's vaginas talk as well. And he's like, I don't care. Wow. Okay. Thanks a lot. He's horrible is terrible ever that peanuts has a good penis. I think it'd be all like I want to hear my lovers. So we, hey, we know we're like, it's a communion. We are having a great time together. Ever. It is fantastic. And this guy is total pump and dump it leased the character. That is the actual pump and thumper. He's honest about who he is that man. No seeing this. You know, he's just like, hey, it is what it hasn't yet. Don't tap that women. But Elliott, he's kept me warming. You know supposed to bird, but literally a dick dick. Yes. So yeah, he doesn't care. I thought that was I thought that was funny that yeah. You know, he just cares about himself. Just drop dead. Fred for adults album trap to see if Rick mayo had been the Pena's met funny. That's I think that's been disconnect. I'm actually I'm glad you did bring up my my fantastic year because Baker is gonna now. So, but he's not this is not a good fit for him. And if they pick somebody funny 'cause you can burp people like pull off really crude unlikeable characters to wear or stole their funniest hell, I just don't think that's happening here. There's a weird moment to where he exercises. His demon where he takes a one of the earliest known dick pics with a polaroid camera and sets it on fire in that. He doesn't hear from his dick after that. Until he tries to get it back in the has to in order to successfully get his penis back. He has to expose themselves to this woman at church, which is sexual assault. I mean. It is also the one of the only black people in the movie teaches him voodoo all of a sudden. All right. And Judah weird character to I mean, I guess that scene where she hates him. And then comes back in love them. I guess because he was being east are making a jerk that she cared about him when he was at the bottom. I thought it was funny when he finally was able to exercise his demons and get rid of him. And then he was a different person. Then things worked out for him again, as I thought that part working the movie, I just remember when I came to a point where I was like, I don't know just kind of put my brain. I and you just have a different your whole world opens up as nineteen years old. I went to a yoga retreat, and they said you do not have sex here. You're not if you're a couple on your marriage, please on of Saxon. If you're single in hair, please do not have sex. And I think that was the first weekend since you know, thirteen that I did not think about sex, and it just changed my life another totally different weekend. I didn't things because they seemed interesting that because as one that can get me laid. So that's that part made me think of just growing up and getting. Over it. I'm embarrassed exposed a lot about myself to people on Skype, but to me all the time usually with Cameron though, that's kind of. That's gotta be interpersonal experience, especially when you're -veloping because your hormones are all my. Yeah. They are large in charge at that age. Somebody we've come invasion the eighties in in ninety. I mean, we we set through a lot of bad movies on Cinemax for just a clumps of nudity. I did it. I'm not shame. It's what you did Bank. We didn't have the internet model. It's every fifteen dollars a month for a little glimpse. That's why kids knew how to set the timer on the PC are. That's true. Yeah. Because I never found always heard about the late mythical piles of like dirty nagazine in the woods. I never settled upon. But I had a male friends that tell me about finding like an old old nudie MAG going back to that whole idea the voodoo and stuff I did like the one article that I read about this film where they were talking about how the penis being clothed not being seen in this movie really helps protect Burt from castration anxiety because there is one. One point where he it looks like he's contemplating castration. But then he goes for the camera thing and the whole idea of capturing the the the dick with the camera lens of just the polaroid. And of course, we don't see the polaroid or anything. And then reversing the spell by exposing it to the the woman who then also we don't see her POV. But you know, she's the one that's exposed to the to the dick. So I liked that somebody actually was bringing that up as far as the power of of the gays in this film because there's not a lot of scholarly articles that have been written about me and him over the years. Unfortunately, though, I think that this movie does like I said, it does talk a lot about sexual politics albeit unsuccessfully, but it opens up where a lot of people's minds were in eighty eight. But then again, I tend to over think things just made it a point that is so good that the smell doesn't. Serve. I'm so I'm so sorry. I know you love his film. I I I wanna apologize. I'm being no pun intended. The about it because there's plenty of movies. I love that. I've you know that are definitely not fan favorites. Oh trust me next week. When when we talk about heaven, one of my co host does not like that movie at all. I'm basically goes on like a whole rant about the film for just about the entire running time of the pad cast so people at home you have that to look forward to what don't you like about the movie in terms of? No, I don't wanna get get defending the film. I I know it's a bad film. But I know watching is like that movie shock corridor. It's a terrible film. But there's so many good parts in it. They feel like it's a good film. But we're gonna talk about a bad part just for this the filming of the actual cinematography. I guess as her husband now, she met him. But it's terrible. It's like everything is dark even within the park stark during the day of stark in a bright room it start. It is weird for the bathroom. The fluorescent lights are dark. It is weird kind of feeling. I did you guys get that kind of like CD kind of feeling from the phone. It looked more. It was shot for television. That's how it kind of seem to be too. If it looked properly CD, I think it would have been a little horn s may bet. Yeah. It just felt that's that's gonna taking the kind of hurt is that even some of the technical elements because I didn't I didn't even like the music the to the end, it is very amusing is kinda like she's E T V, the Rhys Mike, you just nailed something. Like for me. I think because that's a lot of this is very just kind of like TV TV troves, but not good TV like bad TV troves. And you know, which is which is too bad yet. There's for whatever reason speaking of music, there's that instrumental version of strangers in the night, the plays a couple of times in here in think there might be a vocal version later, and I don't necessarily understand white strangers in the night. It doesn't necessarily play into what's happening on screen. But and then we'll. Talk about. We'll talk about the end is seen in just a moment here. But wow. Wow. But I did wanna talk again about the the moment when the dick allows him to hear all of these other dick speaking, I don't know if it came through in the movie, but there's in the script. There's this whole thing about how one of his co workers is gay, and he doesn't necessarily know it until he hears the dick talking about it, which again would have opened up a little bit more stuff. And I think that we're supposed to get that from a lion that one of the dick says about or one of the people actually says that you can't even smell the fish anymore. And then the other guy says I hate that smell. And I think that's supposed to be the gay guy as if implying he doesn't like vagina as what I got hardy Har Har leave is I'm I'm trying not to be mean of of you talked to the director, and I'm C sounds lovely. And I just. That was awful. That was another awful mainly get it. He's gay when fish. It's just it just yet. The I would've there's so much potential in this film. Now, there is so much. Maybe that is what upset me because I think Mike you want said, the most brilliant thing ever because you went told me the worst movie in the world is one that only the filmmaker and their mother has seen. I think it's very true. I don't even know if I can take credit for that that might have been skids that said that one I I'll make it. I'll give it to your mental skits. I'll get to Bellevue because he's halted. But so yeah, there there's potential, but there's like pregnant potential film. There's you know, and yet what if the ladies what else on he hear like the women talk to you. And to be kind of like a cool eye opening thing. Good point like a he cared. Great. So I have a supervisor or you can hear other Dick's talk. So how does that help me? If you're gonna get laid how does that help him if he's not gay and he says, all right? Can you hear women's body parts talk? No one's here that I do. That's what makes it a good superpower. This a lame superpower. You know? I could open jars fantastic. I can open doors. Not a superpower. I assume what other people's Knicks are thinking. I don't you know, doesn't help me at all get lead. At all. I don't know. If felt like they were just filling time the second time and watched it. I think the first time I just thought it was fascinating. But just recently went to watch it for this. It seemed like they were like what else? Can we do? Okay. What else? You know? What else? What else? We've got. We're up to eighty eight minutes, we need ninety minutes. What else? Can you do? Well, I'll tell you. What else you can do Adam? How about we have a musical number? Controversial. I liked it. It's okay. To like it. How else do you end a film about a talking Pena's? But with a musical number. Let's have all of and apparently all of these women are secretaries at the new. Otani tower, which obviously is dick shaped though to be it. Looks more like a tube of lipstick with the lipstick coming out of the top. And that's not supposed to be like a dog dick joke or anything. But yeah, these women are supposed to be secretaries in the they start singing the Bob Marley classic. No woman. No cry and then they start to build up and start doing like dances. And it's all crazy, Grafton, everything, and that's how we end the movie and yet to your point. I don't really know. How else you could end a movie like this where leaders? This go crazy and just do it. But I don't know why they chose the secretaries that me you seem way. Like, they're all objects have just women you you sleep with is that what they're saying. And why are they saying no woman cry? I'm not sure, but you know, like the end of some dog millionaire. There's that great Bollywood dance thing like what it would men and women characters in the movies in in not that might have been better. I don't know how you could -sarily make it a worse ending the nicest thing you've ever said. Well, thank you. On one hand. This is terrible. Part of the kind of like almost respected at just the, you know, just had a surrealist move lateness kind of almost kinda dot move of ending. And so I I will give props through that the musical choice. I don't yet that was but there's a lot. There's a lot of lack of logic in this universe of Manhattan. That were present too much interesting. Are you guys? Let's go ahead and take a break, and we're gonna play an interview with director, Doris Dorie, and we'll be back with that. Right.

And you're listening to the projection booths few like laughing after listening to some serious illness gushing, and I'm over in our shed WHM podcast dot com. Every Tuesday new episode drops us, ragging bad movies. Whereas the concerts here at the projection booths talking about good party cinema related stuff here for the cinema. Come to us for the last afterwards, we ate movies every Tuesday. I know that you were born in Germany, how did you end up going to school in the United States in stock novel places, the yeah. Because of a movie by on Houston, and I hope you know, that movie it's called fat city. Joe yet, we just did that recently. Really, okay. If you could imagine a seventeen or sixteen year old in head of our Germany watching the movie kitty, and then deciding to go to Stockton to go to school there. Yeah. That's only a a juvenile mind can pick a city like Stockton. Because as you know, fat city is it takes place in the completely run downtown, which is stuck in. But because I loved the movie so much I figured I what I what I thought. It's really, but I just wanted to go to that town Stockton. And then it funny instance, that was a cedar group they performed in Hanover. And they happen to be from the university of of fic- in stock. So these two things came together. And then I thought well, that's it stock it is. But you didn't go into movie making right away. No, no. It was too far out there. Somehow, I didn't think it was possible to become rector, but to become an actress was something that was much more imaginable, much more possible. But then I realized very soon that I was never going to be a good actress because I'm way to shy to stand up on a stage and perform, but yet as a director you have to be behind the scenes pretty much doing performance. Oh, yes. Very well. Put that's true. But it's still not your body that you have to put out there. It's something very different. When did you decide to become a director into get more into filmmaking? Well, at dropped out of school in California went to New York City studied a bit of strange things at the new school. Like semantics and symbiotic, and it'd been a psychology, and I don't know what. And then I wanted to go to school to NYU and it turned out to be way too expensive. So my mother she kept sending me the education forms for the the school Munich, and I didn't feel them out for about a year. And then I had to give up a New York because couldn't make a living couldn't go to school. And it was just too hard. So I gave in and gave up and fill those forms and got accepted at the uniform school, which it turned out to be a blessing for me because I'm really a writer more than maybe filmmaker. And it was the perfect disguise for me to be writing screenplays. And then you have other people say the lines and dialogue and turn it into something else. A movie so was your mom being supportive or was she being more get back to Germany. She was just being supportive. I have the most liberal parents. It's wonderful. I know that you were making movies pretty early on. I mean, you were pretty young when you were making your first films. Twenty one. Yeah. I always thought that I had to Hari up and be fast, which of course, has to do with the fact that I three sisters, and I just knew that my parents had to pay for their education as well. But I just knew that I had to be fast with the finishing meditating which came first the short story of men or the film of men the short story since nobody taught screenwriting, Germany. It was just unheard of because of the author's a theory of filmmaking. I just try to invent a kind of writing that I that I could use for screenwriting which meant that in prose writing in the first person, I could get into people's heads and souls, I discovered that for myself as a way to write my screen to write short stories. I get to know the characters and then write a screen because I didn't know the technique screenwriting not of the craft because it was not being taught. So that. It was my way of. Yeah. Writing screenplays, which in turn out to be another finessing because in I think it was in that was before I shut me and him. I think in eighty seven initially didn't as it six can't even remember publisher, the the best publisher in Germany, which contacted me and wanted to see those short stories and ever since then the company he died seven years ago became a publishing house, and he encouraged me to write moguls and short stories and not just as a means to write screenplays. So you to separate these two things pros and sweeper. I think now for what I understand men was really big hit men was a very very small movie that we did on a shoestring it cost four hundred thousand dollars, and I turned in my salary and put the money that they would have paid me. I bought. Thirty five millimeters instead of sixteen so we could shoot thirty five. So that was my investment in the film because I just wanted to be on a big screen and in reverse, I got not the rights to anything. But they allowed me to show the film once a defensible just a once and that turned out to be the whole film festival tiny festival and it became such a smash hit at the festival that then Studer decided to disagree with. I think five prints and it just becomes again ticket. Those elevators I've never seen. Elevators like that before they still around there called hot Nostra, pater nostrum elevators, and they're actually really smart energy conserving entity on a sword. Elevators they run mechanically. So they don't need other trysofi they run mechanically. And in those. Old office buildings. You still have them or those in the short story or did you come up with that later? No, no. I came up with that later that happened to be the elevator in the building of a biggest newspaper to tight on that. I was still working for some critic. And I was always terrified to jump into the cabins of those of the elevator. Because you never really knew who you were going to meet up with because he had just just. When the cabin comes. You have to just jump right into it. And I was terrified of, you know, getting into the same cabin with my boss, which was really embarrassing. So after men is such a big hit. I mean what happens for you? I became very famous which is very scary. Yeah. Because when you're not prepared for it or not out for it either. It was just something that I found very difficult to deal with because I was living in a commune. Nobody had money. I did any money with the film. The producers became millionaires. It was all a bit strange to say, the least, and then it also became quite absurd. Because in my commune, the telephone kept running a upbringing and people from Hollywood with call and people in the commune got really upset because the phone was ringing mostly at night because of the time difference and they refuse to answer the phone after a while. So we got an answering machine that was the first big investment for those calls from Hollywood because nobody wanted to ask the phone in the middle of the night. And then I I became very wary of some. Yeah, everybody, of course, wanted to do a sequel or wanted me to do something similar, and I didn't want that at all. So I turned around and made a really strange strange film after that call paradise, and then the biggest German producer icing was always been very generous with praise and he had called me up right after the big success of men into congratulated me and had wanted to find a project together for me or together. And then he found about a modem via you'll illu e me and him which was a smart move on his side. But it didn't really fit. I hate the movie, but it w-. A big hit. I can't stand it. It is one of the very few films that identify it. I think I only have two two movies that one in a German crime story detective story, and I never never really got inside the characters or the commercial idea. And frankly, the only reason why accepted to do that was because I wanted to go back to New York and see my my friend, my woman friend from college, my best friend, and that was my ticket to go back to New York and see my friends that was more important to me than anything. And the movie got me married because I got married to the DP who again, you know, friend of mine, and he had sought men, and he was the only person that I was loved take with me to the United States. So movie did pay for me because I got married to the most wonderful men in the world. But as a movie, I don't think it's a good movie. It's a strange turn. In for you, though. I guess I can see as far as looking at gender politics that there is a little bit of a dotted line between men and me and him. Yes. But then, you know, the the original level was all about on our Kizza versus opportunism or versus well in those times. It was really about on occasion. Yeah. I can only repeat myself, and it was not about gender politics. It wasn't about that. It was about a political movement. And that of course, got very much water down in in this movie version because bound Icaria and David Puttnam could have pictures. They wanted the whole thing to be not political that turned out to be a big fight between them and me between Aiking Putnam and myself because I didn't want to be pushed into the sexual connotations of the whole thing as much as it is now. Now. But anyway, it became a big struggle really really awful struggle, which again, I was not used to because before and after I've always just made the movies the way on it to make them. And that was the only time where I had to negotiate and into stuff again, and again, and again, the content of the film, and you know, every line of film, and so on and so forth. What was more your original vision for it? It was much more artistic much more free-floating and was not as as commercial. But of course, I mean, the producer, and he was right in the India seeing the whole thing from his perspective because the film made a lot of money, which I guess is kind of the name of the game at the same time. You wanna make something that you can enjoy in that you look back on and be proud of. Well, the name of the game for me, something different. It's not about making money. I can make money working. Mcdonald's which I did at that time still work for five years at McDonalds to be independent and to just make the films that I wanted to make and write the stories that I wanna right. And I'm still doing it that way I mean now, I can I cannot live a filmmaking, but I can live an professor a key to have. I'm the head of the chair of critics the credit writing department. I write my novels. Enjoy stories I make a movie every two years. The combination works for me. But my movies are still completely independent. Well, my news one just came out last week, and it's more experimental in and wilder than anything with before it's called cherry blossoms of demons. She wanna look it up cherry blossoms and demons. Listen, really weird for you to to be working on me and him and have it be pretty much American crew. And then all of these American actors must have been such. Difference between what you had been used to. And the biggest difference was that everybody was afraid afraid of cutting fired the actors afraid of of doing the wrong career move done was terrified that that was the wrong move for him in his career. And it's maybe hard to explain to you where we were coming from filmmaking was not a career. It was something that you did when you were completely insane and out of your mind and artist, but not a career, and we were very fearless. Because of that because we didn't want to get anywhere. We just wanted to do our thing. It was more like punk music where we were coming from. And it was not a business. It was not a career. It was not about making money. It was strictly about making art or doing your thing. Again, could only compared to punk music do the right thing likely. So that was a big clash of. Of course. Because in in the states of, you know, filmmaking making a business and people were doing the job which for us with two very very weird to be in the film business. Again, you in the film business to be making films as a job now. You did it because you were outside of society because he wanted to get to something very very different did meet him do anything for us for as your career. Or did that just not even matter for you? It did lead to of interest in decisions because I got a five picture deal with Glenn be pitchers, and I found myself sitting in in Hollywood and waiting like like almost everybody waiting for. Projects get we knighted waiting for meetings waiting for all kinds of things would again, you know, I was not used to. 'cause that's not the way things are done here, you somehow just do them. And if you don't have the money, you still just do them sort of it's very very different. I was making money, but I was waiting around. And I was not really doing my thing anymore. So after about a thinker year fat or maybe unionise my husband, and I we decided to go back. And also what I found really disconcerting was that. I was losing my language. I couldn't write and German anymore. I couldn't write an English 'cause I felt too insecure writing in English, and I somehow lost my mic round, my my language so to go back was really the right decision. Because I don't think I could have written. My my. Stories my novels mishmash stories, if I stayed on in in Los Angeles and also at couldn't have made the films that I have made never ever. I couldn't have done all the stuff that I started doing since nineteen ninety nine where I shot a movie, and then wanna story in Japan. And I discover the digital technique, you know, moving around with very small crews and their small cameras, I couldn't have done that either. Which to me is the ideal of willful making never work differently ever since we you said, you're making movie every two years though. Yeah. Well for the past forty years thirty five almost forty years. Yeah. How do you go about funding? Those or do you get funding through the German state or yes, it's a combination. It's the it's the way that the only way, and we all have to go the same down the same path. It's a combination of. Trying to get TV money, which is the most difficult, but also the most important part because it's connected to then being able to play for funds TV money for to be able to apply for funds then. So you need a TV output deal for your film, then you can apply for funds, and then you can apply for state funds, but also for local funds like the Bavarian film foundation. And then you try to combine it with the general state foundation or another state within the union, you know, within Germany with Hamburg some foundation, it's a very complicated time consuming way. But it's also quite efficient for certain kind of films. It's impossible to raise big budgets that way, but you can get your films made smaller films like I I never go beyond three million euros as a budget. I have to tell you. I saw happy birthday Turk. And I. Really liked that. Thank you. Thanks. Yeah. That's the only other film that I adapted from from a novel and never adapted. Anything else? Not true. Not true miss. But was this. It was different because I wrote the screen at the school was very very different from the short story. Why notice that when you got back to Germany after me and him that you did one of your own short stories as adaptation with money. Yeah. Right. Which got remade in Korea and China? Really? Yeah. Did you see those? What were they like? No, no. I never saw him all EM curious with me and him. Did you ever watch the Italian version of that? No never. It's it's not an easy one. Yes. You'll e Louis I think it's called. Yeah. That's the title of the novel. Yeah. From seventy three a, wow, I didn't even know. I didn't know there. If this is you sure because I talked about idea the author. The novel. Yeah, I'll send you link. It's on YouTube right now. Oh, wow. Okay. Thanks sounds interesting. And it's unworkable you're saying or difficult to watch. It's a little difficult to watch. I mean, just the, you know, the sexual politics of Italy in the early seventies were not as enlightened as maybe they could have been. Oh, no, certainly not how interesting, but nobody ever told me and before the internet. There was no way to find out. But even Abby didn't tell me a while. I don't think anybody knew that. I certainly didn't know. Oh, that's funny. Yeah. And yeah, it's very close to it because I'm reading to phallic novel right now. And seeing you know, it's it's lining up seeing perceiving. Okay. All right. Oh that really sounds interesting. Will thank you so much for for the time today. I really appreciate this. I'm hoping maybe we can talk again sometime that you are your career is just so. Fascinating. And I've only been able to track down a handful of movie so far, but everything I've seen. I've really enjoyed. Thank you so much. Thank you. And thank you for your work. I it's a salty earth. You know, people who love movies and are interested in in finding out more about them, and the filmmakers, and thank you so much for that. Entrenched. Yeah. Okay. We talk about real quick Griffin. Dunne why he didn't do the show? Eric. Let me see if I can find that exact Email, so I don't miss quote him here. So you each him himself or his people because Griffin actually was on the show. He was on our chilly scenes of winter. Yeah. And I so I have as dress and I reached out to them. Okay. Wanna be on this? And he said making this movie was a low point in my career and nothing with thrill me more than if the whole experience was forgotten podcast away. But not with me. And I love the way that that interview ends where our director did know that this was actually a remake or adapted from a book the head already been adapted. Let's say as a film, cold Yui Louis, and I don't know if you guys got a chance to watch this. This is one of my favorite things where I love to drop movies and dropbox that have no English subtitles to be found ever. We just did the sun the body dip Assode with a Bollywood version of Bali body double. But here we have an Italian comedy, which is aimed at the same story. But a little bit different. I watched part of actually what I what I can see obviously, my town is not is not really. But when I'm like, you I kind of like some kind of fun to watch a movie. Without the subtitles just pissing films. A visual medium just makes you kinda work. Lars, if you were down with, but it looks better than being him the prints, obviously the print we'll add access. You wasn't wasn't a great. That's nobody's fault. It's just the nature of it. But there was obviously some weird, collars, composition and nudity or want to. Would. All right. He's a director and good. It. What I what I saw that. I kinda got it. I feel there's a little more of nod to female sexuality to which I thought was cool. His like the females mean him just seems very. Utilitarian, you know, it's kinda like the women at are kind of latent Burgess. I mean, they have about as much they don't even seem like the really that turned on by him. It's just kind of they're like like a video game. Character more seven like a person, which I'm fine with the film had been completely just like eighty Dr filming on that route. That would words, but but obviously didn't but. But what did you think about EEO Louis? I watched the opening than some scenes and had it looked leave it to the talian to put nudity in a movie about sex. Thank you for that talent. Not that hard. Why love that at the beginning? He's practically drowning in pubic hair that was pretty Nate as a little much. Yeah. I I watch on betting too much into a better data. I thought it was interesting director, right? It hadn't heard of the that. It was a movie why didn't anyone tell her that those another movie based on this book a waiver to tell you? I didn't that she didn't even know it was a book. Yeah. At least she'd met Maria and knew about two phallic novel. The movie is actually pretty faithful to Moravians book. It begins almost the exact same way with our main character having this dream and this woman. Apparently, it's it ends up being his wife her crotch, and he just does not want to have sex with his wife, and in this one in the book, at least the wife is a lot heavier. She's had his child. It's that whole I don't wanna have sex with by wife after she's had our kid, and she's put on a little bit of wave that kind of thing. So she does not look in the book nearly as attractive as Ellen green. The woman who is in the movie, I think she is very attractive. So again, it's one of these problems as far as like, hey, you have this really tractive woman. Here why aren't you interested in her anymore? So that's always problematic, and he ends up humiliating her in Ilian Louis and also in the book where he makes her act like a cow, and then rather than having sex with her after he makes her act like a cow for whatever reason he just ends up leaving her. So there are. A lot of beets that are similar between the film and the book in. Yeah. I I was amazed at how much of my talion came back as I was watching this. I was very happy with myself. He made the the wife mccown or the that was the his wife weird. Yeah. The scene of her dressed up more like a schoolgirl that wasn't in the book that might have been later on in the book, but yet goes from like her dresses, a schoolgirl to her moving like a cow and then him leaving her and humidity humiliating her into doors is point. There was a lot more idea of communism in the book, and in the movie to which was interesting, and there's a scene also which I appreciated where the director the screenwriter. He's a screenwriter who wants to be a director and his trying to find that perfect screenplays trying to get inspiration in this way. And where he. He allows the dick to use his mouth insofar as he allows the dicta talk through him. And there's a scene of him seducing woman with the Dick's voice, which I've found interesting. So if that's you know, that would be another superpower that the dick could have had a me and him, but they opted to not go that way. That's asinine thing to that. Granted own see Mark linn, bakers points, come out of Griffin. Put also like that that would have made sense that would help the plot alone. Not just like I can hear their penises. I can name women's names. The again trying to kill towers. I do the name game doors Boras. We boarder savannah of heavy voyeurs. He's just like the Pena's reciting a dirty limericks or something just we're at eighty nine minutes or almost at ninety come on. What are you got? Yeah. Had it said let me take over for a little while and given over to the deck and just let the dick have the voice, I think that would have been kind of an interesting thing and at the end of the day after watching both of these movies. I all I can say is why don't these guys beat their meet a little bit more. So the Pena's asking a little tension. That's all it's always saying, look, the there's so much potential humor with that. Because you can have light word Venus's lightning break. And he's like oh, God not again. Like, you know, and yeah. Yeah. That's like it's out. I've taken probably a weird place, but we're talking pain asus. It's already there. There's no Bester bation. Which is that's at is really weird. That's a pretty human Metron. There's a lot of your comedy when he does find in in uey. Louis there's that same sleep with me seeing that we're talking about the thing that atom actually got through experience in that scenario plays out that he wakes up the next morning and the woman is masturbating. So it's like, oh, okay. So it would have been kind of almost more of a dirty trick Adam woken up in that woman that you weren't sleeping with was there, you know, jacket off without you like I could have been a part of this would have been terrible. To do. Yeah. You Louis was really hard to find for a lot of years. Because today, I know about that movie. I don't know if I knew about that movie, or if I just couldn't find that movie when I wrote an article about talking genitals a few years ago for para cinema magazine because that that was like the it took me probably like three years after I wrote that piece until I finally got my hands on that movie. But yeah, I watched a lot of talking dick movies and talking vagina movies while I was doing my research for that to the point where when you brought this movie up Adamos, just like, oh, yeah. Yeah. I'm familiar with this one. So the only way you would know about it. So when paid you to watch it or told you to watch it now, I volunteer for that. You know? It was one of those things whereas looking around on my shelves here at home. And I was like man, I've got a lot of talking with China in talking penis movies here. So I should films mostly or they foreign a lot of French films. There are two French films called pussy talk. And then there's chatterbox which is a US film. And that's where the the vaginas more of a. Kind of more like vaudeville type humor kind of thing. But I what I really found. Interesting is that penises only talked to the people that own them, but vaginas talk for the whole world to here. So in all of the talking Jinan movies. Everyone can hear those vaginas and in pussy talk to the vagina is actually are staging a little bit of a revolt, and they want to take over the world, which I found to be kind of a nice thing. Chatterbox is more comedic, but it still has some funny moments. And then I can't remember people can hear lulus talking asshole. But I wouldn't necessarily consider that talking genital film. How my camman? That's it's just Franko. It's Lina Romay. It's called loose talking asshole. This knowing that exists makes my heart happy for some reason, and your article was brilliant, by the way, I hope you may. I hope you wait to it. When you have because it's intimate Hasek article. Thank you. I appreciate that. Ojos Brown eye opening little Oscar Jag. I don't I don't think we should spoil. We want people to little Oscar in the piece about that was very funny yet. And then this whole idea of a talking penis has been done. A few other times there is a Thai film called talking dick. There's two German films. One. The first one is called ants in the pants, and I don't remember what the second one was called. But it was renamed porkies college or something like that. And then the first one got renamed as perky college to which made no sense that the the first one followed the second one, but these movies are from all over the world. I was very happy to find the Thai version the talking dick movie. So yeah, the these are familiar things then there while I was doing my research finding going back all the way to cash I wanna say like the eighteen hundreds. There's a book called the indiscreet jewels. Which was about the the women around the court of one of the Louis neon Louis the fifteenth or sixteenth, and that all of their genitals could talk, and then I think Heather you, and I were talking a little bit off line as far as one of my other favorite talking. Penis movies is the the film marquee, which is the whole story. Murky decide all told through. Puppets. And there's a talking penis. And that which ends up getting I think the marquee fucking wall with his penis, which was pretty great. That movies amazing. I that's not available Blu Ray in this country. A on it really should be his murky is it is a site the hall, especially Pena's like the Pope Innocent, so cute. Like this little phase petite phase in the OEM emotional on his. I saw that in high school at I was a blew my mind, you have arcane should be out. That's that's no. That's a great fell. I we should have been talking about. Would Marlin Baker in marquee. I'm sorry. It's Craig Nelson in murky now, you waste, David. Alan Grier Marquis. I think I actually mentioned marquee cash probably about a year and a half ago because we were doing the tenant which was written by role until poor and to poor ended up doing some puppet work doing some some writing of other things with this guy. Unreal. And I'm gonna screw up his last name, but Jono or something it's ex H L N E A U, and then they decided to work on this movie together. So to poor who wrote the tenant, and in in many, many other things was part of the paddock movement with hotter outscored around. Yeah. Yeah. Back then he was doing this stuff. And then ended up in nineteen eighty nine putting out marquee. So it's got a good pedigree. S pedigree, any it's it's marquee to saw in puppet s-. I mean, I don't know what else could sell somebody on film. That's Geoffrey Rush. He didn't know Caja, but he's not doesn't have a talking penis. No an talking door weirdly door. It's cute. But you're like, this is a pain. It's like a punky Pena's like Pokemon betas the doors. So I did have one weird question for you guys. Which is and I've always been fascinated by this do you guys have names for your genitals. 'cause I know some people name their genitals, which I've always found to be strange. But if if you do have names, I'm not casting judgement on you. I don't I don't know. One thing. Emit too. I wish I did make funnier I did have a name for my cell phone that while I was on a date with someone who is back when he flip phones and she put in my name prince, Adam. And I was like, no. And she thought she'd being fun. I will back now. King speaks my last name. And then we laughed about. And she's like, oh, you think you're the king? And then I left myself, then was in a meeting, my boss's office, the ten other people in calls me back in because. And we left your cell phone near. Oh. So everyday, right. When I get the doors as king's figues. Might as well. Call my peanut how about yourself Esther role. Damn. How many get haunted by her house? Like you. Let's talk about naming your China. No, I don't the navy. I don't again pay you know. No judgment many. It's the okay. You know, take care of take care of your body. You don't need the name civic parts of it. I know what this thing for sun guys to name the genitals. Have you ever heard of a lady naming her genitals? Hey, I'm having a member. Passing me upside of a was because friend of mine a college she was hanging out with a girl that she's bartending with. And this girl was kinda crazy in light. My friend was only out this girl had this one night stand with the guy and she scared him off 'cause she kept talking to his tick. And she kept calling her her lady Parr name, and it was I guess too heavy of a scene. I can't remember. Was it depends with all the right like if she called it something Esther, always McCue like this one. They would like come on Hitler get. Yeah. Little mussalini. He's waiting for you, baby. It was a. Poland to give it up. The belt. That's not right. Oh, I can't. I it was something like it. I just remember the name of something you would give to like a fluffy dog a little poodle like camera was that. It was weird. No judgment. But you you probably if you have no one stamos somebody you probably want to make that a second nightstands or nightstand. Kind of introduction. So tips for the listeners.

Still Buffering: "Troop Beverly Hills" (1989)

"Uh-huh. Alot welcome to still buffering a cross generational guide to the culture that made us I am Riley. Snarl. I'm Sydney Macaroni and I'm Taylor Swirl Well school has started here. I mean it's sort of it's been started for me for a few weeks now I mean in this house. Okay. In this in this location this house. Yes. How's the the digital schooling? I mean it you know could be better. I mean mind suck. So I imagine Charlie's. No I mean the the teachers are doing their best. I don't want I. Don't want it to sound like I'm throwing shade on the teachers because they are trying it's a kindergarten class I can't imagine. How much tougher it could get then a bunch of kids. Like in that age range trying to use these devices at home that maybe I mean they the district was nice enough to provide us all with devices, which is awesome but there's also a learning curve. Out How to use if it's not something you've ever used before you're used to a different device or whatever, and certainly, all the APPS are different. They use teams, I only know zoom I know teams well, I use teams for college I'm learning teams it took me a while to figure out like on zoom there're pages you can have like if there's more than a certain number of people. Yeah. Teams you just you you see the nine you got and that's it. I was so confused I, was like, where are these children she's talking to? Soggy two kids I can't say not great. It only shows you nine people at a time which means in discussion based classes in college. When you have twenty five classmates, it's like, how do I know if someone's about to talk or not I can only see eight of you I'm just going to talk and hope oh no, all of you were talking at the same time. Okay never mind. They they. Foresaw that problem with six year olds and have them all muted all the time and then only when the teacher says your name and says very clearly, you can mute do they me. That's a good process. Yes. there's a there are two Charlie's though. So this is throwing us for. There's never been another Charlie every time the teachers has go ahead. Charlie Charlie looks at. ME. and Go I. Don't know. One of them needs a nickname I. Know I know I'll tell her to make one up if she wants if she wants. It's been watching them before the teacher signs on and like everybody's kind of logging on a few minutes early to get ready watching a bunch of kindergartners try to figure out what to do on on A. That it's it's the same as adults though like anytime, I log in for any of our meetings or anything, and it's just a bunch of people kind of awkwardly like trying to work while also aware that people are looking at them and then like looking at periodically like should I say, hi, do I do I talk to you right mark It's so it's funny. Yeah. There's this weird thing in teams I don't know if you've tried it yet but it's called together mode and it cuts out everyone from their backgrounds and makes it. So you look like you're all set up in like stadium seating so It's everyone's cameras but like cuts out their background. So it's just like your head and like your shoulders in like these rows of stadium seating. So you look like you're all next to each other it's it's a lot. I don't think I like that. What my teachers likes us to do it so that we can all see each other. We all have discussions and all like look when we're talking which I share, that's what I like about zoom at least. I can see everybody's guess this is the way to do that and teams, but it's very weird. Some people are closer and some people are farther says some people really tiny. Some people are really big. It's a it. What's great is throughout this entire? Everybody's still trying to figure this technology out I understand that, but there was one Parent Caregiver One, one adult everybody's grownups. That's what that's what we just we have grown up. Yeah. Yeah. I have a girl. Yes. Get Your grownup grown president was someone's up was. Just every few seconds going. Hello. Excuse. Me Hello and I did. I don't know I can hear them, but the teacher was responding. So I don't know the teacher. It was just like every few seconds for the entire we were on there for an hour and forty. Hello. Hello. Hello how would you not at that point? That's when you hang up and call back like in my my good now or Looking at me going what's that? was that. Pay attention to the counting I. Wish I could've Seen Charlie and Sydney huddled over the IPAD getting it figured out this morning because Charlie of course is six but Sydney also is now having to be in kindergarten so I wish I could've seen just the interactions between all of it watching Sydney have to struggle through the kindergarten education learning exercises not helping Charlie just watching. What's going on? It's really hard because I don't WanNa help but I also see moments where Charlie's like like at one point she looked at me and said I already finished all this but I'm not going to raise my hand answer anything and I. Why and she said, well, I'm GonNa, let everybody else have a turn. Thank it which was very sweet very kind and not not. CD would raise your hand for every single question even she'd just answered all of them. Yes. So it's hard for me to just sit. There you go. That's fine. That's fine. Good. Because, you're not allowed to raise your hand. Child. You can't make make your voice higher pitched and pretend you're speaking for Charleston five soccer balls they're five soccer balls. Interrupt you all here because all you kids have the wrong answer and Child has the right answer just feel like it needs to be shared. I know I. It'll be better Justin's better at like being in the room with her but not really interfering I feel the need to encourage the whole tar Part of that was on me. I came in half way through and I had gotten Charlie Donna and I just sat it down next to her and Didn't think that a six year old would then donut not be able to focus on their. And be like, forget this. Quick Quick Donut and I'm like Stop Stop Stop that is that is it happened that is when the shift from paying attention to just skipping enters happened was magically when I appeared in the room with a donut. So, hard as this distance learning is you all are creating even more hurdles. REALLY IMPACTING HER FOCUS A. Even built her a desk and a chair and we still didn't pull it off. It's kindergarten though, right it's going to be like a passer fails situation like I assume, do you get grades hold on? Do you get crates in kindergarten? You know I don't know I don't know what this school I'm. I'm I imagine it's different everywhere but like maybe they still do those and S.'s and get crates in kindergarten. That's that's a wild concept. If you do it was that's just like how do you in pre k. they get the SS in the Os and then the I don't know what's what's under the S S in. For Su- satisfactory. Dan Dean. and. Loops you or I don't know something needs improvement. There's another letter. I see what you mean or well, there was two different creek as we did the other one did M.'s for mastery, and then there was like. Something below the M. which meant you're you're getting it and then there was something below that was like you're not getting it but I don't remember what they were, but it's basically also like ABCD. Yeah. Why it is similar but it's it's worded in a way to make it just sound like they're not quite getting this yet to improvement. They're almost there too. They got it. Yeah. But but that's also like you gotta understand on a Pre K. report card. It stuff like puts on pants on. Or like. Can. Know turn off a light switch like it's a little different than. Reading and math I mean I'm not a I'm getting over oops putting. On. Hands. I can't I'm not going to judge that. I wish let's Still. Sometimes those things are hard. Really hard. We'll see we'll see I I just wanted she loves math, and so a lot of this morning we'll say. Hey. And I wanted her to I. Want Her to show I want her to get engaged because I know how much she loves it at home like she will do math for fun. That's true. I've witnessed this. and. I think. It's GonNa be hard and again, this is no shade on anyone involved. It just is the nature of it. I think it's harder when they're sitting there remotely Oh. Yeah. You know on an ipad trying to piece together. I. Mean it just pay class. I'm in a college campus and it's hard for you know a bunch of adults in classes even professors to sit there. I. Have a class two and a half hours long to sit there for two and a half hours staring at a screen trying to keep a discussion going is mentally exhausting. So yeah, I'm sure it is and. I know everybody's going through I'm lucky I should I should say this I am very grateful that our school district and our T. in our school in particular school in our classes and our teachers have been. So supportive of this have created a virtual classroom, all their own that allow the kids to see each other that our school district gave us ipads. There are meals available if kids need them, you can pick them up every week. They've really they've gone above and beyond to try to fill this need. I mean the major shoutout to anybody that works in education right now because just had to create an entirely new way of doing your job with like a month's notice. I don't know like people are being you know having to actually go to physical school spaces with all sorts of new precautions I just can't I can't imagine the. The struggle for all teachers out there right now. It's tough. Yeah especially, I got all these professors and my school that are like you know going into like their fortieth fiftieth year of being a professor said like they're Kinda getting up there in age and they're having to figure out how to do a virtual classroom for the first time in their whole educational lie look. I'm sitting here thirty seven and I was so lost. Now. I know is like the professors that have like. Not even like use technology for like grading. Yeah. That have just taught from like a lecture they wrote down by hand and just like you know deliver the lecture then leave those I have one of them the semesters, poor professors they don't know how to. Do Meeting I will say, and then we should talk about what we're going talk about I will say it's also really hard. I've done a grand rounds this way through zoom for our department. Not, being able to see people and feed off their energy when you're doing like a presentation, 'cause like I try to do it I, try to not just think about the information but like be a good speaker like engage you tell you. PODCAST. She takes great joy in her ability to captivate an audience. I do I love I, love public speaking I adore public speaking and I I really get like how am I getting engage everyone not just how am? I GonNa give me information but like how will I draw them into this and doing that on a computer screen is so hard. Yeah You can't feed off that there's not the give and take you know. When you when you turn your Tehran and sit backwards in it like a cool person nobody can really see that so. The same impact. They can only see the upper half, but they can't see how cool you are with your arms like one on your Chin resting across the top of the chair like they can't see all that when I take off my white coat and loosen my tie. Yeah to show that I'm really going to get into it they they can't. They just try to tell them what you're doing, and that takes that just ruins everything. Your actions. Just losing the old title but. I have no segue. Did you all enjoy troop Beverly Hills? Is A WORD TO USE Charlie did I not surprised join it? It was very silly lighthearted movie. Several. Fashion choices in it that I wish I could I should have been videoing Charlie's responses when like. shelley long comes on in the at the Party with the pool she falls in. LIEU GET UP. I Bet Charlie, the she turned to me and win. Oh I've seen the dress of my degree lie favorite description of it was when I got here today and asked me what I thought of it and he said You know most movies are about the scout troops that like actually do the work and then end up having to like fight with the scout troop that gets paid. You know like lots of money doesn't really do anything and their parents paid them all off to like be there or whatever, and you're rooting for the underdogs that don't have all the money he said but this one you know it's like some corporate executive that was like my daughter's been bullied for being too rich before making movie. Yeah it is. A is a weird set. I will say that because the whole concept is here are like the rule of the rich and. We're supposed to have there are underdogs. Yeah. Sympathy for for all of these, very, very rich people that. Haven't had that develop skills of like empathy and communication. It's one step away from a dystopia novel where like the rich people somehow been overthrown and then become the outcasts of society like it's it's so so rich accepted. They're still rich like there's there's there's a moment. Kind of go all over the place but this quote where like shelley long scatters one of the kids that like can't pay some dues because her father's and out of work actor at the moment and she's like you know what's more important than money friendship and I'm like okay is that is that where we're going movie and then and then like whatever friends gives her money and she's like an even better friends with money and I'm like, Oh, well now we're back on tra-. yeah I. It's weird. So okay. The setup for this film if you have not enjoy troop beverly hills is a an end. It is set in nineteen, eighty, nine I should add IT IS A. They're not girl scouts wilderness girls. and they I guess they couldn't. I guess the girl scouts we want nothing to do with this. It's probably true. You Girl Scouts. has nothing to do Beverly Hills. Thank you So the wilderness girls they usually don't have an entry a troop that is really participating from the Beverly Hills Zip code because they're rich they're. They can't be bothered or whatever, or their troop leaders always quit in any way shelley long is going to step into this role Phyllis neff ler. And Be. The troop leader that will that will bring the troops from Beverly Hills to prominence. allow them to really participate be real wilderness girls and then compete and win hopefully in the jamboree. At the end right, which is like a hiking trip really overnight hiking excursion. It's the big finale plot device to test their. Their development and of course, since they're rich and in Beverly Hills they're going to do everything they're. Going to be a little different. And it's all set against this I cracked the code as to why this movement. So much to me it's all set against the backdrop of Phyllis and Freddie Netflix. their divorce. So this main character who is the troop leader and her daughter Hannah they are their family is going through a rough period where the are getting divorced. and. this is phyllis his way of proving like. She. Can do something is somebody is capable. Yeah. I of Independence Finding herself and I realized watching Craig Nelson and Shelley Long. I think I liked this movie because it was I, felt like it was about our parents. Fair Mom Call me this morning and she said that you'd felt that way because it's been well as I see the movie is that a bad thing without an insult. Character and. That was. My answer. I mean, if fell it felt that way to me as I was watching it. I was like Oh hey, mom and dad and like. You know they end up back together in the end remarried. Is. Fun House. Mirror mom and dad. I will say that there you go. It's it is because like there was the joke mom does like to shop but like But mom doesn't like spend millions of dollars. Yes. Rodeo drive. Likes to Shaw. She's never been Rhodesian. I don't think so. But the I mean the. The close though yes. Back in the eighties mom And then Craig t Nelson wearing those pants up. So hollow, those Paolino's pain still wears pants high. Anyway I. think that was part of why it's. It's weird too because it reminded me like and I, feel like this was true I was really focused on the parents. I. Think because I'm old now. They've fight because they're going through a divorce and so they they fight they fight with like. No holds barred like bare knuckle. They say the worst stuff to each other. For like a married couple I mean. It was really raw. I was watching that I was like, Oh, I, did think that was a lot for a movie that I I figured was meant for like children. It's it's in front of their daughter, a lot of times too, and it just kind of it's funny. How like in the eighties? So like Oh divorcing couples and the kids are like opie up there at it again but I think we have an awareness now like, oh, that's really bad for that. Whitney, you're. You're right like that trump was definitely there like they even make the joke at some point when she falls in the pool and he looks at Everybody Party and is like we're going through a divorce and everybody's like oh obviously. Hilarious we've all been there. Before. But Yeah but they they act like this kind of fighting I mean she's like. Is there somebody else and he's like, yeah, a girl I met a long time ago. Basically, it's like a really great girl that's not you anymore because you took all that and went shopping. And it's like. Whoa what is happening? Idea wish that there had been a little bit more explanation and this is it doesn't help the story but I, they have a point about. Well, she like coupon clip to get him through law school. But now he sells mufflers and now he's rich because he sells mufflers and I didn't understand the that I've missed something there. I don't. Well, that's my career plan. I still go. To Law School and then selling mufflers. Not. Weird hangs hangs attorney. What is happening It was one of the one of the many things in this movie that made me posit for him and just think like die. I know it wasn't like paying the closest attention, but did I miss something? I need to talk about the spiritual journey of the actual members of troop Beverly Hills. Do that check the group message?

So back to troop beverly, hills so yes, it is comprised of collection of young ladies who have money for various reasons. We kind of get like little sneak peeks into an and it is it is really weird to see a movie I think in especially right now in twenty twenty where like. All of their situations are meant to make us feel kind of bad for them on a hall of them but a lot of them most of them. Yeah. Yeah. Like. One's parents travel a lot. Say it that way. She's Her parents like are never around they? They actually they they have a trip on her birthday and there's that wonderfully delivered line where this very rich little girl stands there and goes. Monte. Carlo. They, there's another one like you said, who's who is not they're not as rich at the moment or like their their wealth is threatened perhaps because their dad can't get any acting jobs which phyllis helps them with. That's the thing you gotta know about Phyllis Nadler isn't that She's all about Altruism chur she helps him get a job as the Godfather. A movie about the. she. I I guess has a heart to heart with Chico parents about like hey, you keep leaving her and she said. I. Don't know. She makes all these parents realize error of their ways. in saves her marriage in the process, of course. She really just doesn't all. I always loved the fashion of it used to fascinate me. The fashions in this film especially once they do the So instead, they need to find creative ways to sell cookies. And one of the things they do is a fashion show. Where they take all of the Wilderness grow uniforms and Make them fabulous and I used to be obsessed with that. WAS, so. Fascinating. Yeah. I. Bet. Charlie liked that part that part and she loved the both her and Cooper dance to its cookie time Oh that's good. That's good. Damn good jam on down it's cookie. I did not realize that song and embedded itself somewhere recesses of my brain because that came out. I'm like I know every word this song but. Don't remember this movie. That and every once in a while where you're just standing there and like spacing out and then you're like. Through What am I doing is that a universal experience? You think a lot of people say isn't it? At least if you had an older sister that was obsessed with troop beverly hills and it was constantly played. It's really weird. I don't know why because other than like the story of the parents getting divorced and then getting back together there was nothing in there for me to connect to We didn't grow up rich and Beverly Hills I. I went to. My middle school was called Beverly Hills but. I did for a long time growing up I thought that song it's like Beverly Hills. That's. About that was about the middle school here because that was where I was also supposed to go to middle school and it was like, well, that's Kinda crazy. No but they did they did have we did have sweatshirts back then that said Beverly Hills to five seven five. Anyway But I didn't I couldn't connect to that the as far as like the characters there was no like one character in it that I felt like I was like Hannah the main character what do we know about her? She's good at gymnastics and she didn't do us no, and she's into girl scouts and I wasn't either of those things so like You know there wasn't fit. Whereas my Marianne. Because you you never did you ever do girl scouts either view. I did you did I did when I was in elementary school for two years but our school had a troop. So I I only remember selling the cookies and we went on a ski trip. Once and I hated it because I was horrible at skiing and I just like slade on my butt down all the hills on all the slopes that all the older girls were better at it and then i. just stayed in the lodge after we went to being 'cause I was okay at that part and drink hot chocolate. And then I quit girl Scout this is this is something that Justin and I have connected on we both went to exactly one will for him it was cub scouts and for me it was brownies meeting exactly one. I went and at the end of it, they treats up at the front and I was walking along the table getting. A treat you know the story no and I. so remember this like it was yesterday the a girl in front of me was having trouble deciding which one she wanted but I knew exactly which one I wanted it was a Brownie and it had the little silver balls on it yet whatever those are called and I reached to get it. and. The girl had not decided what she wanted yet, and so perhaps she wanted I guess and I reached to get and the mom behind the table was like, wait your turn. And that was, why said he never wanted to go back to girl scouts? Yes that's. Still in your met. Wow. I felt so embarrassed because I wasn't trying to skip I. was so embarrassed at the thought and that someone perceived her to be breaking rules that she could never return I never returned. Why can't I did a little better than than you I went to I think two weeks of girl scout meetings The first one I remember we made that banana pudding with the Nilo wafers. That was a good memory, and then I I only joined because I wanted to go to the Mall Aachen and then I quit quit at the Mall Aachen, because I was there for the sweet sweet world of science shopping after hours experience. Yeah I don't blame you there we also. We had a lock in, but it was at Cosi. Oh, even better didn't walk in and Co man. I did a lot of stuff in girl scouts and is remember joining his dad was like no fee joining. Cookie. Cookie. Along the cooking. So that and I. I don't remember I mean well, when you get older I, guess the Jamboree. I against you that. Yeah. And it's pretty intense in the. So in the film, the the climax is. The teams that sell enough cookies get to participate in the jamboree. And of course, troop Beverly Hills sells. For. Everybody else. Yeah. because like I don't think they highlight that enough because one of the parents like if you want them to sell these cookies, why don't we just by them? Phyllis? We're all rich people. Yeah. We're in the room together. Doors are shut. We can just say it out loud. We'll just. We're all rich here can't we just buy the cookies or whatever, and I don't know and she's like well, I'm trying to get the community involved and then proceeds to like sell them to all the rich people. So yeah, like on Rodeo drive or the fence fashion show or Not for. The other girl scouts might have. On a yacht whatever. so They do they sell all these cookies and so they go to the jamboree which like I said all of the teams compete in like an they hike somewhere camp overnight and then have to hike back. Basically is what it seems like and I would say a fairly intense looking experience that they all have. Yeah. I liked I don't know if you notice this but in the early, there's an early scene in the movie where they show that they have like a gymnastics room in their home because they're fabulously wealthy and Hannah is on a balance beam in that scene. And then later in the film. That the other the their rival troupe of. Of wilderness girls, the red feathers as they're called they decide to like Taj them in the jamboree by cutting a rope bridge so that they can't cross it. So Phyllis has across it walking on a log. Cross this big scary and Hannah comes with her and I realized like Oh this was foreshadowing we know Hannah can do this. Oh, gymnastic because we watched her walk that Balance Beam early in the mills even thought about that. That that might have one level four thought. That et L.. Intrudes Valley Hill Is Truly Mind blow I think I think I didn't really hone in on the balance beam seen because you're getting the interior of the house that Phyllis proudly. Oh Wow it's. It's just a time capsule of it's like a weird that Pastel floral laying. Thing like are living. Exactly, but that was just distinctly bad eighties. Seeing things like that. Still I just can't. Process I can't fathom there's never a point in my life where that was my reality. So I, still look at it like So many colors. So Colorful Blues Greens yellows. -joyed it thoroughly, but it just you know So they, they win the jamboree because they The red feathers abandoned their leader. Valda. Lender. Yeah. because she breaks her ankle and you have to cross the finish line with your old troop including your troop leader and so and isn't that just a statement about? Togetherness and they create a they. They have like a makeshift stretcher and they collect Valda. To Beverly Hills does and they drag her back to the finish line and therefore win. The Jamboree and they get the the the you know the the. There is like look they played fair and we're good people, and so they deserve to win and the red feathers cheated their whole way. But once again, a little tainted by the fact that it's like well, you know in the real world when you grow up crazy rich, maybe it's a lot easier to you know never have to hustle and figure out a way to cut corners or get ahead. So I don't know it's a little awkward enough feel bad for the red feathers I. It's definitely true. I see all that now because the the message is just play by the. Rules and everything will work out for you and it's like well, no. Yeah. If you're already really rich, right the rules were made for you but for everybody else no I mean like if you just play by the rules, it doesn't necessarily work out. It's it's it's like the bootstrap idea like we'll just you know work hard work harder next time red feathers I feel bad. I. Was Thinking about that and I was talking about the character of plunder who is like what a name, the other troop leader who's trying to undo phyllis because she hates everything she stands for and. She's like the real deal kind of. Survivalist Yeah Wilderness girl basically Sydney is a troop. Well, you find out early on she says that she's she says, introduces herself as a widow. And her and her daughter do this together and she super intense about it. There's a whole other story here that we don't get that like I really felt sorry for Valda. Done. Daughter and and their troop. Fit said once once a weekend but for Velvet Splendor is overstated. I really felt like there was a whole story. Now we're like this is what her and her daughter had had helped them like like they had faced a world that was hard and not built for a single mother trying to make it on her own and she found a way to survive and. Hard and tough, but she had to be and like there's this whole other story but we don't get that. We celebrate Phyllis instead and I I'm not saying, Phyllis, is nice but come on. Yeah that's not right. So weird because. The when? This movie made me think of like pretty woman and habits? You know we're kind of. Romanticizing this billionaire as like you know always. Like the good guy in the movie, and this is another one. It's like don't we just love are billionaires in the eighties just make these movies about how they're secretly just charming and relatable like what was that? We wouldn't do that now. before we finish talking about troop Beverly Hills, because I i. do like I said I genuinely have like this old affection for it and I think a lot of it was just visuals. It was very eighties like even like it has the animated titles. that. So yeah. But such an eighties thing I i. Did look at the parents and because they had this like split up and get back together story did kind of connect them which we have said that like our parents did that before I was around but yeah. Yeah. So that's yeah for for me I felt I feel like, okay I. I understand who these people are. Yeah there my mom and Dad. The fashion was fascinating to me. I thought they look like dolls like everybody just looks like. You know adults owned i. mean I liked the. The different way like I think those kinds of eighty movie eighties movies where like a bunch of kids like we're going to reinterpret a campout to stay in this fancy beverly, Hills Hotel and stuff like that glancing. lamping thing that these were things I, it was a world I was not part of and don't know anything about, and so I think it was all very fascinating to me. So I have all this affection for it but like it I think if you're going to talk about the movie at least half to. The, class issues, right sure which to finish that out like the the the Nemesis Valda is punished by having to work at Kmart at the. Joe. That's that's Kinda. Well to say like. The you get punished by being gainfully employed. Yeah. In a job that we do not deem worthy because we live on Beverly Hills why does she even lose her job which he do I? Volunteer thing yeah also, yeah. She part of the organization to some level because she wasn't just a troop leader And I don't know. But clearly, he was very passionate about that. She lost. You know. Yeah. I mean I. Thought I thought all that was not I mean obviously, there are those class issues but then they're also, of course, there's an extended unfortunate seeing. In which Phyllis, neff Ler has constructed a teepee in her living room. Yeah and as wearing a headdress and obviously that is very bad. Very inappropriate totally inappropriate and I. Think there are a lot of little. It's very like. it's a movie again movies of the time it's almost almost completely white. There are people who aren't white within the film, but it's mainly white people centered in the movie. Yes and any kind of mention of people who aren't white in the movie is very, very brief very stereotypical very much caricatures. I mean, all those things I think can definitely. Well that's what you your your your people of color are the housekeeper the gardener. Yeah. Yeah. You know I think there's one or two members of the troupe who aren't white but That's pretty much it. Yeah. But yeah. So I mean all that I feel like it's always I mean. It's kind of obvious to say that but I feel like you do have to say it when you talk about movies of that shined period is like clearly a troop Beverly Hills Sutton twenty man now being very different story, it'll be very different story. I don't think you could do through Beverly Hills on twenty twenty, I think in two thousand, twenty, a good troop beverly hills will be focused on the development develop lindor story. I want the Vela plunder strong. Beverly Hills would be the bad guys because they're they're the rich. They're the one percent. They are they are they're the one percent and they come into this wilderness girl world, take it over and make it. They twist it. And it's all like it's all that like you have the privilege enough money gives you the privilege. Of, being nice yeah yeah because you don't have to fight for anything you know what that's like and you're just like, I don't know what's wrong. I'm nice to everybody and it's like no but that's not how the world works for a lot of us, right? Well, even like there to to moments in the in the movie where they give back their patches because they basically they made up a bunch of easy to earn patches and then had them and also at the end when they win the. Other red feathers had run away with the trophy like we don't need a trophy. We don't need patches and I get that. Those are symbols look how altruistic and these people are. But really it's Lik. Know when you when you're a kid like those things mean a lot to you because you don't like. Yeah. That's a symbol that you're something but I guess. So it doesn't mean as much when a bunch of people are giving back something that they could easily have made for them purchase for them. They also said that those patches cost seven hundred and fifty dollars. Oh Yeah I mean they they keep saying seven fifty and I mean the two options are either seven dollars and fifty cents, which seems pretty low or seven hundred and fifty dollars more right. I assumed it was seven dollars and fifty cents just because the girl that gives the other girl money gives her a ten dollar bill. So, seven dollars and fifty cents. For All those passionate I don't know maybe it was seven, hundred fifty maybe the ten dollars was just symbolic. I don't know. I have no idea. No, you're right. There is a ten dollar bill. It's probably seven dollars and fifty cents well, that makes more sense throwing away seven dollars and fifty cents not that you should ever throw away but you know what I mean like. More sense to me. I was watching it. I was thinking are they all just throwing their seven hundred fifty dollar patches on the ground like I don't need these I mean for them they probably could. Well, that's true. Anyway. I will always love troop beverly hills what a thrill. Shelley long and Craig t Nelson early, just putting in the performances of a lifetime and I will always love him for mom and Dad Yeah matter how much the real world applications or the movie are are not delightful. The movie itself is it's it's fun. It's spread colors. Yes. Yeah. I can understand I young Sydney would've loved this movie And that's why a charlie loves the smooth exactly the. Story will becoming story starring Cindy MC-. Winter Revenge of. Tae was next. Well, I was actually inspired by a troop. Beverly. Hills, with my next choice because there is a young. Jenny Lewis in this movie. Who is Known to younger generations is. The lead singer in the band Rilo Kiley. So That was a band that I loved very much when I was a teen something So I wanted to talk about their a lot of their albums I really loved, but I specifically want to talk about the. Of things because I think that I think that would be my favorite album of there's. All right that's. Perfect perfect segue from Beverly Hills also basically named after me. So I've always called you RILO because of Kylie. Yeah. All right. Well, thank you both for indulging me. Will enjoy a Taylor's much more quality offerings and. It's I like I.

Anyway that's all he had to say I just want to give us all low shot to other things that we're doing. So it was lovely. Let's go into the show teatime is check in with some celebrity chaos. Guys came here for this is why you listen every week. Some Weird Shit have in this week you WanNa, take it away I do. So we've been talking for I would say a long time, but it was a two month relationship. So it's not that long about Demi Levato and her fiance Max Eric. I think it's Eric and I felt bad about not knowing how to pronounce his name, but he's an asshole and he's not relevant so I'm never gonNA wear I don't feel bad. And ended their engagement. They had this. You know everyone was happy for damning. Obviously she's had difficult past couple of years difficult life honestly love and everyone was really happy. She had this very public engagements to the sky that nobody really knew and it just crashed and burned. It went bad. So fast got so messy There have been old tweets that have resurfaced whether they're real or not. It's hard to say but what has become very clear as he was very thirsty for fame. Base. Other. Hot starlets. Yes. It came up all these times he had commented on Bella. Are Gomez or all these other women basically trying to do the same thing that he did with Demi and like. Four push forward his career through them, and unfortunately he almost succeeded with Demi. Obviously, she nipped it in the bud, but just all these things have come to light about the way that he just had these intentions of trying to use her and all these sources on TMZ and cosmopolitan say that like it became very clear when they got engaged like he a lot more emboldened to sort of push himself and they kept calling it his career it's whatever thinks he's doing even when he was talking about their break-up plugged his movie that he was shooting. Yeah. He's now turn this so bad he is so sour about this break up, he was on instagram live didn't catch it. Thank God but read about it later he's comparing this break up to Arianna Guerande Pete Davidson relationship which like is never the one you want to compare it to and. Not The thing you ought to relate. No also Pete. Davidson is a person who is famous no one knows who you are very true and then he seemed like I was in love the whole world you fucking now i. hope the song is number one. If that's what someone wants in this material World Blah Blah Blah it's like that's what you wanted. He's just milk it's so weird it's awful and he even He even compared the break-up to Jeffrey, Epstein? Stop recently, and so what happened is demi was so fed up about this. Apparently, she released a song that she'd written a while back. She changed the lyrics at the last minute to reflect their break-up. It's called still have me and she released it going to TMZ. So fast that her team did not know it was coming. On twitter, the team had to scramble to get it on streaming get on apple spotify etcetera I streams because she like. Fixed it recorded it about him and dropped it like nowhere because she was so pissed at the way that he had been up. So it's just a huge mess and I just I. Oh, yeah yeah and. But I really want her to be happy like she really just has had some really rough breakup and relationships and I worry for her mental health in her happiness and just want her to be happy. Wanted to find someone good I agree. A sucks. Really. Speaking to someone who sucks Amelia? What's the next thing insular? That was a good transition but also. Novice think he sucks I. Don't like him well, just think. About. armie Hammer's divorce photo shoe. He's got like a Moustache I. Bright Colors do something for me. I swear to God, I almost thought Robin Thicke looks. Really starting her I was really dark given my history with him but. No He's rocking this like what was it? A Fu Manchu Moustache handlebars gambled bar. Yeah, Lumen. Shoe. Mustache Beard Hybrid, I'm sorry but. I would go for a ride on that mustache. Process what you just said. That in. I so disagree. and there's been some shade on social media someone tweeted about this and was like no one has ever looked more divorced with this photo shoot. Hilarious Elizabeth Chambers Hammer the ex wife in question liked the tweet. So like there's a whole although we have to say we are pro-am army based on the rumors we've heard for the reasons for the divorce. Right are supposedly allegedly political. We are technically on army side that. We'll see he's just going through something right now clearly lose it was the mustache. If he lost the mustache. In but you don't. Know, okay. Oh it's. About our hammer he's like a wealthy white man whose. Anyway, let's move on the next one. Another rugged man up to eight. Am really sorry to do this because I know he just recently talks about singer but guess what as maybe some of you've seen the promos for Tuesday night's episode I think they were like Oh my God this is never been done before and everyone was like oh And Nick Cannon was like Oh my God men in black. Helped me Oh, my God what's going on? Someone having like. Someone. Shit. On the stage we don't know but then we found out it was the Gremlin who really he got shortchanged with this outfit because it was like a free outfit that they had found like in the closet and they decided to put on some. Really makeshift like eyes and fangs and it was just like that's okay. No one cares about they knew that he was going to get eliminated or he was born eliminate himself. That's part of my whole theory but anyway. He was like I'm hot take this thing off and they were like. Grandma. And then he took it off but they went to commercial break and I was like Oh my God and went back on he was Mickey Rourke, oscar-nominated actor and former boxer. Wasn't. Really, for me. Is the pool of Massingir condensing. There's literally everyone on the planet I. Understand I can't find a through line for any of these people besides they are human being with a BDO. That's that is yes the. Topic. I was GONNA say 'cause. Fits that true I will say this I think because it is very adjacent to dancing with the stars. But what is great about the mass singer I think is that I wouldn't consider we'll make York I personally he's not to me, but he is like b-list has been nominated people know who he is. And he's like, not Donnie. A Osmond No Funds Donny Osmond but they and they did this with the previous episode where are not episode season where they had Lil Wayne on who is a list? What about the? Okay. Well, he was on. The show personally is that they can have these like bigger stars on and they don't. They can only stay they just one episode. Where's the stars is like it's a whole process you have to learn how to dance singing is not as difficult as. Per Se you're good at it or not yeah, exactly. Yeah exactly. So that I respect that about the blessings that they can pull kind of the bigger talent maybe AETNA. Yeah. Well Yeah. I. Think Carol basking shoots that out the window, but you're absolutely right where the stars have some ability right dance before him. Last one, wrap up this chaos just adding more to it because it has nothing to do with anything we've talked about, but it kind of goes into our next category. Anyway it's October you guys I'm extremely excited. I've been tracking the HOCUS pocus. For my whole life basically with that movie, it's the nine hundred ninety three classic it was Sarah Jessica Parker Bette Midler. Anyway. It's a phenomenal movie. Watch it. If you haven't sure all of you have apparently there's a sequel coming all these years later and Bettmann there was recently interviewed about the status of it and she's absolutely up for reprising her role, which is truly iconic. I knew about her before I even knew like Bette Midler and who she Really was and she says, she can't wait to fly again which the woman is seventy four I am scared I e them to turn out this sequel and get started on production ace. APP Time is of the essence because those stunts are not easy because I just got me excited about Halloween the month of October anyway that this is coming on Disney plus I would love if everyone reprised the role even Kenny can we get Kenny Ortega to direct again? Anyway, this perfectly dovetails into our next category. I am so excited we're bringing back Amelia's you ought to know this is where she shines Amelia. What are we talking about this week? Okay.

Cool Guy Movies likes Halloween yeah he does he also loves a Gold Hoop. Hearing. One of only two men who can pull that off him and Michael Jordan? Harrison. Ford met Callisto Flockhart. Who played ally mcbeal if I mean I, never watched that show but maybe other people did I. Don't know at the two thousand and two Golden. Globes and she had a young child at the time. So they were together for a long to other still together got married I think in two thousand ten and obviously we have a young child it means dressing up in Halloween costumes and we've seen this in. Previous years with Sandra bullock dressing up or you know Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel that was a bad example stock but. You know just stars with children. We'll a stars in general, but usually stars with children love to go all out with how ING Kylie Jenner also bad example, but she got way out. So did a crash in general yes it's true and they Kim has actually some really great family. We should delve into that. We should I would love to put a pin in that one for. Now But I just want to name off a few of the best hairs. Ford Halloween costumes in two thousand eight he went as ps like the man drew up like. Drew Green Pain on his face and came as a peapod and he looked amazing incredible I don't know if you've ever seen a picture. Right now. You guys. Doing and look it up Oh my God.
