"I'm trying to get in the house. My mom is sitting there. Drinking Caffeine looks dead in the face of what went on last night thank you. That's a really good question. Does she know something I don't and then. She tells me how she found me. Half in the refrigerator raider questioning of house alive or dead dragged me out of it and I guess I woke up and went downstairs and went to bed and she had to bring in the kitchen table a CO chairs and put it back together. Yeah fine this kind of funny. Thank God I didn't dire. I wouldn't be here ear to tell this story to hopefully spread this message to somebody who might think that taking three I've been doing some heroines is a good idea because we live in the two thousands anymore heroin hair on its fenton all. I've lost too many friends. We've Lost Chris Chris is she's not to seem game lot of gathering plan so those view dinner clean awesome and stick to what you're doing. Don't go back out those either coming back out going back in and going back guided. Just keep doing it eventually. It'll click but why it's yourself be careful. Don't mix these things don't use alone. Make sure there's never can't somewhere into stolen anymore. You guys from this disease and I think that's the un-american Gordon because they're probably gonNA start crying by the way there's took like ten times. Am Street court so I hope I got a quick enough. Dave sorry for the delay Miss.. You Chris and love Yaldo nation toodle. It only took me ten months to play. That's good one maybe longer that took me to play that is hot wheels dopey legend thank you for sending that in and my apologies and he was supposed to be on the thing but it was his birthday. Earth Day when we were recording Christmas yeah he was supposed to be on Christmas but his birthday was right around Christmas birthday. I guess I think the day before so but I'm sure we will hear from birthday. Happy Birthday and I'm sure we help from him soon. Now before you go or before we go. I want to tell you this retarded thing that happened thought very stupid thought giving. I was home and I was going to seven eleven to get cookies and I was thinking about not bringing my phone okay for a second thing. Is You know leave the phone. This is how addicted to the phone. That's the other thing that I'm fucking addicted to. I think you might have our leave. Leave the phone here. I'M GONNA go get cookies but the thought I have is what if something happens to me on my way to seven eleven like I pass out behind the wheel or I get hit by a car or something when the ambulance comes. What am I gonNa do for all that time gotTA connect. I absolutely yeah just the idea of sitting alone without the phone. Just terrorizing me. How funny is that. It's really fun. It's funny so you got stuck without a phone for weeks recently right well just a week right now. Is that it was. It was fine. It's hard because I wanted to be in touch with three with my daughter like that kind of thing but what's the real reason why that it was hard not have the phone well that and it was right when Nick Free Agency was about to happen and so I needed to also find out what was going to happen there. There was one I was in remote I know of Scotia and there's no cell service and in this like little cottage there was no there was no phone and Internet for the week so but there was one tiny corner of the porch where you could get like a bar sometimes and so I'll go there check in with my fam and then try and download all the articles that I could and then bring it back in and it was also really cold during that week and so so you're shivering. What's going going to have it well. That's another thing that Devon I share. Is this terrible obsession with the next terrible I honestly this is my my phone life. I look at dopey stats. I look at job emails. I look at work emails. I look at dopey social media. I have to do all of the work social media so that's those five things like one thing kind of it's all like dopey work right but it's just constant scrolling between these different things and then when I'm done with that I just there's a button on my phone that I've created that just says Knicks News and I hit the button and I want to see if the article's refresh and all these bullshit websites besides let's explore the David Lee sign and trade of nineteen ninety seven or whatever it was I fucking hate those those click bait sites for people people like me who are obsessed with mixed news. Discuss me the only thing that discussed me more than that is the knicks themselves knicks but maybe we're in a good moment. Will I'm not going to a whole Knicks warhol right now. Because I've got a lot to say well. I think we're going to call it a shorty and we'll call it the addendum send him to the two hundred episode and we will call it the time. Devon and I almost became famous on MTV. The for next time I come in there so we're just put a bookmark stories. I think we should talk about some plan. I think that I gain you doing obligation to try and kick story is where is worth telling. We didn't tell that story when you're on. I think we did all right. I know I've told the actual. I- Bogan story like three times so then my favorite stories that's what else the the I think we should talk about my dad because like I'm not afflicted but I grew up with a father who is an addict and he just died last fall and TV knows him so I think that it it would be worthwhile and you know how much how much of an addict do you think he was. I mean that's the reason that's the reason I didn't didn't want it to get into it because I wasn't certain you know how much of how much you consider him an addict data fanatic. He has his one of his his main slogan is Moore's more wow yeah he was he was he was a pioneer Devon's. His father was so out there in so many ways he just like he seemed more like just a larger than life character and somebody who was on the spectrum backstrom of mental illness say that with all respect and love and I loved Evans Data Immune Devon's dad had a great loving bond but I think we should i. I think it would be worth talking about that and parents dying. Go is good times and then there was a third there was a third thing oh when we took acid for the first time and I think maybe like our first real like both of our like I real drug use like before I feel like we're told told the story of the first time too but yet we did we went to the we went to Madison Square Garden and we went to see the grateful dead kind of with the just the plan to take acid. Take acid there because neither of US listened to what we were like. Oh that's where that will be like a nice safe space to go find and take your first asset well we could actually the logic was was we could buy acid from hippies as opposed to like who knows who in Washington Square Park ended up to so many T- orientational yeah well in Central Park. I felt like we bought it from hippies appease in Washington square park not so much anyway but she just the one story. I think I think we should UN bookmark for a second is is a job then we have. I think we should say that. We have to go just Taliban at black story real quick now. What do you mean just give it to them. At the end all right all right so parents grip Brooklyn. We're hippies the they were in especially especially my dad. My mom was kind of along for the ride a little bit but my dad was all in and what what album is painted black on. I think aftermath so that comes out which is when nine hundred sixty seven or sixty six that album comes out how it and my dad gets it immediately and taking acid and listening to it and paint it black comes on and he's like Yes yes. This is what we must do. This is what we're going to do and so so they go out and he I think maybe he had some friends over the. What did you find the year. I don't know I know they were born. In forty-five both my parents have rolled they were when that happened twenty two twenty three either and like their first one one of their first departments. My parents met in tenth grade in Tenth Grade High School in Coney Island so they get bucked. It's of black paint and they paint their entire. Her apartment black the furniture every wall the wood furniture the walls the fruits but in the end is listening to it over and over work on record so like putting the lag nineteen sixty-nine sixty-nine it says it song let it bleed but I don't feel like it is. I don't know what it's on. It doesn't matter anyway any kind of detail. You're not supposed to quibble about not quivalent. You were typing giant paint. It black is for anyway. That's that is a little bit of insight but but did they make the fridge. I was aftermath. They painted nineteen sixty six. I was right in the first minute. They painted the table of the walls all the furniture that they paint the painting of black black as night cold they do they really don't think they painted over the windows but I know that they had like like some like plexiglass. Things were painted and then like the next weeks and weeks my mom. This is probably really not the best idea that's funny. Did they really paint the fruit or the apples black now. I don't think so oh well anyway. I love that story and I think we finished it on an up note which I love and so we'll say stay strong DOBIE nation and fucking toodle fucking totals for Chris so you think the show is going. GonNa end but then it doesn't end and the addendum to the two hundred episode has an addendum in itself so this is the addendum to the addendum and basically Siklie. If you say the word addendum a lot of times it doesn't sound right anymore. Addendum what oh it sounds like some kind of dental procedure but the end of the show I I wanted had to play more of those voicemails because I love them and there were so many that I didn't get to now. I just WanNa be clear that means I will play a bunch of fucking voicemails smells and I'll get to yours probably so please don't hold it against me but here are a couple more voicemails before we go and before that I just want to remind you guys that on October twelfth it's Dopey Khan and dopey con is going to be a storytelling festival in New York City in the spirit dopey so send in your best. Ob Story on drugs addiction or dumb shit or all three or recovery make it funny make it compelling make it under under ten minutes and send it to Dopey podcast at g mail DOT COM..

"I just wanted to wish everyone a very happy Christmas Chris. We miss you so much dopey as meant so much to me. It's helped me stay sober and feel less alone nine. There are so many other fucking depraved archers drug fiends out there just like me. I needed this in my life and then so great great food here. Everybody's stories big shoutouts. Amy Dresner Dead Matthau Chick Jeremy Turner is in next donuts store blackout a chick the crackhead lawyer Poughkeepsie Rockstar Guy Hot wheels an audience guys and most of all today's before years of sobriety and for bringing us all together and then four outs themselves are in honor of Chris Todd and all the other fallen members of the dopey nation may be in our necks. I lives we can do lots of drugs together. Without all of the consequences love you all stay strong and tutorials recurs well. The last one just gives me. The fuck and chills does are amazing because I don't know if you know this about me but like I'm you know I'm very sentimental. Will it takes a certain thing to really trigger the sentimental thing. If I watch a movie I only cry like at the graduation duration or at the moment where people care do you know what I mean like. That's the moment that always gets me. You know what I mean. There's a lot of bad things that happen and I kind of just can endure it but when when people come together at the end that for some reason triggers me. It's like how you always love the the other more traditional. Christmas like episodes of everything right. Always you love that kind of stuff I do and so this I mean like I knew new how much I would love the two hundred episode but when I started to hear from people and like that woman who recounts all of these different very specific things to the show. It really makes me feel something. It's amazing. I mean it's amazing but the real thing that whenever it happens is when I hear anybody mentioned todd I like you know I had. I had a funny todd thought but I can't think of it now you you were around todd a bunch yeah any any memories of Todd. You'd like to share no. I'm just thinking there was an early early. I know that you do. I know that he made Devon's is an incredibly warm and sweet and kind and brilliant guy and he makes exp people happy to be around if you walk around the lower east side with Devon every person knows and because he works in schools down there but he also has helped out all these families so anybody not that's. Devon is happy to see him which is always very frustrating to me because I'm with them. I don't really like other people to to show up and you know what I mean. Yeah yeah anyway so I know that todd loved you being around because he knew you liked him and you made him feel that warm nice thing he you after you guys became junkies. It became harder for me like I had this this kind of warm fuzzy dummy kind of feeling around talk to which he would play up. He was retarded. He would do hard stuff but then after you guys became junkies together. I would twist like when I went to when I lived in Istanbul for that year right after right. When I I went to stop right before I'm moved to Istanbul you had that break up and then I was there and then when I came back you and todd had or had formed a heroin habit mm-hmm and then it was still snorting and it was still you know light enough but like it was regular and then and then it it got deeper and then after that once you were real on once he moved to. La Basically my my feelings about todd it became more like Geico ta Ta and you're going to die because of todd like because every time you would relapse would be with Todd Todd. Come around and then you you would you you would dive down and so that became a harder thing for me to have around him. It was the newest less enjoyable dot around but before for that I remember there was this moment when you were living you and Jim were living on Norfolk Street and todd was just smoking pot and doing cocaine that sounds right right and so and he really want to go buy some cocaine and no one wanted to go with him and I was like Gago if you todd and so he we go down and he's like looking around and like asking people. It's you know we were probably twenty twenty. One and these kids were maybe like younger longer. They were like seventeen eighteen and they see tied with is like you know big hippie beard and he's he's like hey dude you know and they're like yeah sure. Give me your money and then over. We're there in the under on the tire of that. Car is where you'll find the the the blow and todd's like okay okay and I was like wait todd. I don't know he's like no. No it's fine I find this to I do this all the time and so he gives them the money and they leave and he goes over to this car and there's nothing there's nothing on the real. There's nothing there that doesn't sound I mean this is very early. I had you events events and he was like Oh man. I can't believe the danger and so so todd guppy was that you tad's ads got beat infinite times but like I guess every time he would learn a little bit more one story he never told which was like the darkest time in Todd's life and I was clean and he didn't WanNa tell me about the stuff he was doing because it was so crazy but he told me he had befriended this crack dealer in in Harlem and he would live in her house he would because he lived on the upper east side and he would just stay in her house and she and this is so funny how how far it came she would go to the bathroom and he would jump into her closet open up her safe and steal her drugs so like he made up for whatever these kids stole on the lower east side and but it's it's crazy. It's crazy that that he died and it's you know with my dad talking about all the stuff that I didn't get away with but I mean like this is something I survive. Live this thing for now and you know I think the emotions are all very very high for me around todd and Chris Chris. This stuff is like it's still very built into weird sadness anger disappointment and just like I don't like to accept the whole thing with him with todd it's like ah my brother who died painfully and I've tried to unpack the emotions of this a billion times already and hopefully eventually I'll be able to now now interestingly enough we heard from dopey superfan pioneer hot wheels from fuck in the Midwest someplace place. I wanted to say Minnesota but maybe was Kansin. I think it's someplace out there. She's not saying that it's up Dopey Nation Towels Colin on that started so many of you wanted to hear so many so so much love during our loss over the twitter. I didn't know that many people actually frigging cared so let's see what kind of story can I easy with. I WanNa make a little dopey and also a little cautionary very so I came up with was the night that I fucked up with Coletta Pan in heroin. It was in August I think for for my spinal cord injury and my buddy pick me up my girlfriend. Go to some fucking Kager in the city where it was really doesn't matter Nah. I'm thirty three bags dope and on the way there the pills disappeared like any good attic form three two milligram cloud opin Farkas Doc. Id want garlic any good addict no never really big drinker but ahead of a few tried to lay delegate my three bags of dope to make it lasts through lake however long the whole cater was which was probably just a feeble attempt don't know night one always just a party and I don disagreement with the girlfriend. She went her way one or separate ways and in. Dopey your story maybe something to get your sometime later or whatever she's a dope and I don't think I really relegated them bags and smack throughout the night at probably just did them all on whatever no well long long story short. It's remember coming home and getting dropped off. I got out of the car in everything seems fine. I mean I walked up the driveway. I remember that it was fine and then I got to the back door and pull the keys out. It was like I could not get the a key in the hole in the door news like Dick. I never had sex before you put the cans slack you Turner. Dog couldn't get out somehow I got in thing. Guide business completely blacked out. I used to do this thing when it was hot out right. Open up the freezer for like a minute and just put my head down to cool off. I think while I was doing that I had this grain they did that you could halfway chrome the bottom of the refrigerator that probably so so. I dragged the kitchen table out in the backyard all four chairs put it together all nice and neat needs with the place mats and Silverware plantain everything ric down to the fucking fruit basket in the middle juice like it was in the kitchen cleaning off the bottom shelves thirty deductive reasoning the next morning. I think I was using my crack to hold lit cigarettes while I was moving stuff out of the bottom of the refrigerator. 'cause I woke up with the most massive suit burn across the top of my but like your butt cheeks start where I couldn't sit down for like a week. Yes I had to deal with who but rape deep doo jokes from all of my friends for like three four days and I couldn't even give him a good answer. I couldn't tell him to start here. I went to asleep in the refrigerator. This real doping of this story comes. Apparently I did make it into the refrigerator frigerator fall asleep because my mom found me sleeping in their injury but I didn't know this. 'til the next morning when when I woke up I could never fall asleep with my sacks shoes shit and jeans so then I got up you know soon as you pull the thing that move or your feet hit the floor and like down's shoes sacks sticking my paints the fuck out last night here so as going upstairs what what what what happened like I remember..

"The day I got clean and I said you gotta come on one right. Do you remember it yeah. Yeah I mean some of it was was like like decrepit old stuff that was like hidden up in your top cabinet but some was some was not no there's also so that like wax and there was all of that you had collected all this stuff well it was it was the end of a glorious we'd collection with a huge jar of one strain and then like six six jars of and other strains and some were like more decrepit because I had saved them because I wanted to taste them one last time. It was like that was my fantasy was to have a spice rack of different strains of weed. I actually did it and then I gave up. I gave all over the edibles to this dude at work and I gave all the bud to you. And how long do you think it lasted. You probably a while that's the thing I smoke very small announced over longer periods of time so like by the usually if I get too much then it gets it gets old before before I get to it by. The time from people yeah did any of that. Go bad probably for sure yeah. What does that what does adding. We're GONNA say just that. I'm really happy that you're alive that you've made it back. They were definitely a lot of time because when you're talking about like walking and looking being for dope there were so many like when I was on my way over here. Rachel's like what are you. GonNa talk about like all of the many many phone calls you had after all each of Davies relapses where like for hours trying to like talk him into like trying again and coming back to you. What do you remember about that. I don't remember that many of the of those phone calls but you know what I yeah. I remember I remember his like because somebody at work actually said to me if you're an addict and somebody says to you. Are you going to get clean clean water. You say and I feel like I would say yes but then just do it but I feel like I've been like we would talk and then I don't run you would like get all like riled up about you know not doing it like I don't remember weeping. I just remember saying I wasn't going to do it that it wasn't going to happen happen. One thing about me I would lie to get money and I would lie about not working and I would lie about this but I was always very pretty like a I don't know what the word is but I was pretty honest about not wanting to stop. I remember into the habit but also there there were times when you would come out of it for as well. Well like I'd have a day clean and WANNA hold onto. I don't know if we told this story when you were on last time was the ibew gain story. Oh Yeah I've thought about that last week. When I was thinking about coming to do this also aside know is really funny to be also just like what I mean funny. I don't know but like walking here to Your Dad's house off the train you know being in like the right train car to get out at the exit right by. Your Dad's and come here taps into so many old memories he's of coming here and then also memories of you getting me to come to meet you. When you were junkie and then like half of those times times you would then like disobey. You wouldn't be there really like calm and like there were so many times me here. Meet me there and like I would come and you wouldn't be there you also. I also got you to give me money a few times which is unlike you which was very unlikely to be able to give me money yeah. I usually don't have extra but you know you were the scrapping but to speak with total honesty you know it's been a long time I haven't I haven't done drugs in four years. I haven't done heroin is and eight years. How long how much do these kinds of things pop into your head? We've had a pretty we I actually went. When Linda left me I made the decision. Listen to move to the lower side for two reasons. Are maybe three reasons one was because it was right. Near where I worked to was because the apartments armaments there were exactly like the apartments I grew up in and I couldn't resist that and the third maybe most important was it was a stone's throw from where Devon lived so like we hadn't hung out in like a fucking decade basically except for like bursts when you would come in our right but I even remember when I came back and we started hanging hanging out it was like it was weird like I would meet you and your daughter at a playground and it was weird because like she was like to you know and you would be pushing around the swing and you hadn't seen Rian like fucking ever and it was like a little weird and it took a little bit of time to get back into the swing so now when you're sitting here talking about a bad memories how fresher they in your head not that fresh but but they were subject about right well there was something about coming at like a weird time for for me to meet you and have it be here by off kilter and that was like Oh yeah I know this feeling right having to meet me in a situation Asian where you don't want to and that's another thing you can say that I made you come here because I did make you go those places in the past. I don't think that this is one of those situations Israel. I love you and I loved Obi. That obviously don't listen all the time you know but like I it's amazing. It's amazing that donations dopey nations there and that this that this podcast is is what it is you know. Let's let's let's listen. There's a couple things that I didn't get to from the two hundred hundred so there's a bunch of voicemails that I stupidly did play from fans in the donation and of course then being in the dopey nation. I've heard from them and they're upset set that. I don't play them so I'm going to play a couple of messages from the two hundred now. You excited yes. Are you sitting on the edge of your seat. Look we're going to start with dopey superfan randy who used to attribute his whole sobriety to Dobie united yeah. I think he's got shit together a little bit yeah. This dude actually took me and Chris out to a steak dinner. I remember when that I didn't like the first the first six months of the show. He's a statistician for the NHL and he fucking has a lot of beliefs about the show. He's incredibly excited about dopey conned by the way. Are you excited about Dopey con very calm October twelve eighteen in St October Twelfth Eighteenth Street eight o'clock at night. What Day of the week is that Saturday Saturday October twelfth. Yes I'll try Saturday October twelfth. What what time eight o'clock at night. Why wouldn't you come. I found that in the city for visiting mom or something okay so if you're here here if I'm here I'll be there. You'll be with that. That's more like and here's Randi and a few more stragglers that I just didn't get because it was so late at night for the dopey two hundred you know so. I stayed up till three thirty in the morning that night to your your wake-up time. I know to finish the Christmas episode to Mason. I know a lot of work a a lot of good. Here's Randi and some more Dave. This is Randy Aka Billy Baru congratulations on two two hundred episodes. I just want to let you know how much dopey has meant.

"We didn't have have to do it and the donation the text of the preview now in Dave likes to play it a little cool sometimes in front of you but you know the the lead up to making sure you gotta be year. This is the time this is what has to happen well. That's true however I mean also I am. I'm really happy to be your. I'm touched to honor to be here right after two hundred and the two hundred first episode the first of your next two hundred no I mean I appreciate shipping. You're too. I totally appreciate that too. I know I pressure people do a lot of things the question but people never have to do what I pressure them into doing. I mean come on you. You know that now the thing about that Dobie story is it totally. It's so funny like kind of pre cell phones or maybe not even pre cell phones. If you get if you're sick and you get some connect and you don't keep the number like what the fuck do you do. I feel like I've been in speech kind on the situation similar to mix situation wondering around buildings that I've never been in to find the dope because you're it's like it's like a needle in a haystack in the first place place and how do you find a needle in Haystack. Twice is the question right and there's a clock ticking another thing that that made me think of like once in a while. I have these these dope dreams. You know where I'm looking for dope or where I find dope or I get to open. I put it in my pocket and I can't use it. Last last night. I had these dreams about bud that I was ready to smoke pot again and there are people at my job selling by and and they were selling a bunch of like Dank Indica and sativa and I was trying to choose what I want but I hadn't smoked in so long. I'm trying to figure it out and I wound up with bud that I didn't want but then I remember I had gotten the good bud to that was the whole dream and then in the morning when I woke up and I was excited to me. Devon this morning and my dad's that occurred to me that after I stopped smoking weed I gave all of my bud to Devon. You remember that yeah. I think I called you..

"I don't know like if there's any real reason to have that on the show but I think it's a pretty crazy story and it was a dream deferred. A dream denied nine years later the addendums well. There were many addendums because we kept trying to capitalize where like we can still capitalize on our connections there Dr Summer Guiding in college but I actually got to capitalize on it eventually. It was like the first couple capitalize awesome. Should he word why capitalism's like three spat. It means like you're doing bad things now. It does situation. I feel like there's no so what are you talking about. It was opportunistic. How's that yeah. No I mean I guess it is yeah sure go on. I mean I don't WanNa. GET DOWN TO SOCIO economic economic political conversation about the merits owning and drink more coffee or early in the morning non merits of capitalism but we did try to capitalize on it in the end. I ran into the sea the I was a food server on world yacht the CEO of MTV showed up there. Maybe it was a CEO Viacom and it was very embarrassing and many years later I kept reaching out until I had a different TV show and he was like Oh Dave Dave Endeavor Devon Dave both good and and when I went back they hired me on MTV too but when they hired me back at MTV to and I've told this story they presented myself as a real producer and I went back to we already on heroin that I was totally totally early. Fall on Junkie I had lost my job for going to detox shooting job and I was clean when I got the job though because I knew that I was in trouble and I got this job at MTV to which was actually in the another different MTV Viacom building but it was on the fifty seventh floor and as soon as I got my first check like it was like some of the biggest checks I ever got in my life and I got my first check and I was like fuck this. I'm going to get job and and I got a bunch of job and I I was shooting up and I was I think I was making like eleven hundred dollars a week or something and my rent was three hundred dollars a month and I still went broke rogue and I still couldn't keep up with and but the highlight was in the very beginning I was making a show for MTV two and I was like the fifty seventh floor and I had my own office. Yes and I would shoot heroin in my own office and the office face Central Park South and I thought to myself this is like I in my mind. I was miles Davis at that moment homer which descended into like me getting my nose broken helping out my neighbor and it's a good one and and fucking it all all up and and the last day I went in on a Saturday and all those promotional CDs that Devon was talking about was a Saturday I went around three three floors of the MTV to building with shopping bags and I stole the CDs off every person's desk right winner all of them from desk to desk. I left with like hands and hands in hands of shopping bags like discography of Miles Davis and John Lennon. Whatever whatever whatever the great CDs and I went straight to saint marks I sold all of them? I probably got six hundred bucks and I spent that in a day or two days so that was the end of my MTV career which started so promisingly and so innocently. It's funny. You know it's weird. Let's Adobe Story. What do you say yeah so this is from this guy. Mick this English guy he sent an amazing story about his journey to Hong Kong and a bunch of like terrible things that happen and and this is the follow up about what happened when he actually got there. It's MIC ready. Freddie MAC is a great dopey participant and Fan and new new likes sort of pen pal of mine so hey man I'm sorry I didn't play or two hundred saying maybe I'll play it now. But here's your voicemail Dave Dobie nation. Everyone's will mail chat with Dave the day and he said few people would mention Laudi or follow up to Mars Mars story of when I go to Hong Kong. She's a surprise to me because I thought train wreck of a job of sensitive bushnell smiling. It was terrible awful anyway as fair fair enough. I'll see what I can do so yeah so I'm rob had been arrested and detained in Hong Kong. Wait been released on bio with the proviso overseas to appear in court in Hong. I'm calm a couple of weeks following so we're back in the PU. managed to get our baggage. Go the drugs Bumba this point. Nobody sells well so I went out and talked to a taxi driver and said it was the best cheap placed to sty cy pay porn under towards Kowloon which is we helped on the train and off we went to Kowloon. We we go off books into a backpackers which was about fourteen floors up on this building that consisted of dodgy businesses selling knock off. Hugo boss suits roots fucking style electronics and go knows what else but it was cheap and there was a whole lot lockers. They're big lockers lock stuff up so we went to a I washable big pussy fucking padlock some stuff up and dumped onto bags fixing the room uh-huh which was Tony but you know for a fact that cost about I think is the equivalent of about ten bucks or something and add a bathroom as well so that was cool so we went straight down the local pubs in Kowloon and thought we'd check out a local scene. Si We found we found drugs pretty quick. Go second puppy win and we bought some. Hash we show I asked him. Where can we get something stronger and and he told us this comment sort of vague but I remember ended up in another pub. Would you saw like a poll post nuke clubs or place and connect their heroin is an Indian half Indian half Chinese dot com screwed into being was his name and he told us he's he's. He lived in a building the next building over a couple of buildings over from where we were staying in Kowloon and he said he could hook us our blight. He wasn't available Ayla he he was into it saves going to Jack Subway now. The day was Stein in Hong Kong was is part of what used to be cool. The walled city now that had had been part demolished by the time we were there one point and this was the most densely populated place on earth. it was just a touch will get full of opium. PIMM dens cocaine. Paula's and illegal businesses doing dodgy like I said you know stone dodgy electronics and Dodgy Tyler's set the knockoff Calvin Klein suits so this sort of thing so this this place was something else slob pretty well traveled. I've never seen anywhere like like this Park Allen. It was dangerous and it was full of drugs and fuller criminals and it was fucking awesome if you you now I mean relatives always in at the time it was awesome anyway so we met the vein lighter at his apartment Tom for one of a bad word Mr Spicy just two rooms connected together with a weight room bathroom shower and he hits us up and we saw what was the equivalent of a gram of heroin for what what would have worked out to be about thirty. US dollars and now I had a region dope habit time I mean a huge habit because I had a decent income and it was just a haul latics overspending on drugs so I had a big habit and I took on this stuff. which was you classic? China want and it just enough male. Moss was so pure now filtration acing required you could literally just put the pound at Arrow in the bow syringe shake it with called water injects it and it took me to about three hours to do my shoelaces up leave because I've bounced so yeah so we bounced around Hong Kong travel a couple of thoughts in a bar in a place called Wendy Shaw and we go the ran from the police there was an American aircraft carrier docked while we were standing in Hong Kong so we go into plan poll with all the all the US silence so yeah that was that was a fucking good night. I was in an underground bar called the Rhubarb Kangaroo Bobby Layman Chevrolet. She's between Kowloon and human shell show which was uh another one of the areas. We're in so that was fucking co we we moved after wall. We found a cheaper place near it went Choi so we stayed in a backpackers there and then we got into the beans. Might we've been born heroin off. He came to the room and and he he did in our room and just freaking out is all social he was dead and the room had a window in it but the opened into the inside of the building down John Sort of like chimney shoot thing that went straight down the middle of the building and Asaf Vice and we're going to check them out the window that that was the plan at the time when we dragged him socially was dead and we dragged him across so the we we hope hooked him up onto the bed which by the window and just getting ready to lift him a guy woke up saw my God what what is wrong with my I'm Charlie Scott. Out of the window. Fuck anyways thank God he wasn't he wasn't dead. Siwei yeah yeah and a whole lot of other things happened loss to find number for the for the connector. All within obeying are lost his phone number so I got the taxi back from Wenchong. Shaw to Kowloon just walk as you know Skinny Little English boy twenty years old walking around this. I guess our building in Hong Kong and I've got no number just remembered roughly which flora lived on it was either the nine hundred twentieth. I'm just walking round shabby now. Bane we know Bay and there's all these crazy fucking little Chinese fellows with tattoos and huge skulls on their vices and missing eyes and fucking Bowie. Are We knobs on that bill just by looking at me anyway. Eventually I found him somehow about two o'clock in the morning and go native. You did cy but anyway yeah we we went to Co acquisitive charges. We will find for the bright fun for the smoking on the plane and I am fond in the the the the fallen was roughly the equivalent of the bail money we'd pied side eventually burn out and I'd lost my bank card and all sorts of stupid shit blackouts and the Blair ended up finding my dad and he wants us the money for so after six weeks of just insanity in in Hong Kong we flew back actually London and and that was the end of that so yeah that's the the rest of Hong Kong dopey story. I suppose there's there's there's there's a whole lot of other share that happened while I was there but it's sort of it's it's all a bit vague amongst the blackouts. Go Nice what else the anyways thanks for listening. Everybody love. You'll stay strong. Thank you dive surface engine other one month. I Sir thank you. There's MIC. That's a fucking I mean. We have our stupid story about em TV. That's that's amazing and then and then you have this he almost through someone out the week who was alive.

Oh deed a guy named Ivan and he thought it was dead body and he put him in a phone booth. Yeah I remember that that was like Chris Favorite one and what a weird sort of caveat to that story story was after Kris died first of all thank you for the dopey story fucking killer bee story.

"He said he was fucking with us but he wasn't okay because he was a piece of shit. You know sorry Charlie. Whatever your name is but this Dude Orleans through Western. His name was charlie singer. If you guys want to look him up he's responsible for me going to summer school but anyway but I you although although I did forge a signature so maybe I was actually responsible in the end. I had to take all these extra cl. The reason I know it was before the end is because I had to take all these extra classes. We both had to take all these extra classes. They wouldn't give us credit for the for the internship anymore but I sometimes so which ironically I'm nearly fluent in now. Would you say that is true no anyway. I'd say I'm fluent in restaurants span ever told Mister maybe but hold on for his dad. This is my dad's favorite fucking story by the WHI- which which part but you'll see dad hello. I don't want you but it's it's tonight. Have you. On this part of the story we're telling the story of MTV and this is your favorite story. This is the story worry that my dad thinks defines my life right so lean forward. Come come when Devon screws up he doesn't get into trouble when Davies screws up winds up having to go the summer school and changed his life around but what I didn't have to go to school but I did have to take extra classes and interestingly when I graduated college. I also ended up scrambling last semester there and had to take extra classes because I got kicked out of something. The really really fucked up vindictive piece. The really fucked up vindictive. was that the principal not only you know. I had failed us on on this thing and you had to take an extra class that year and I had to go to summer school but I was in a play. I was directing a play and he said well. You can still direct the play but I'm taking your name off. The program and now is my punishment. What do you have to say. Welcome back to the show fan favourite Alan Fair favorite but I thought you didn't want me back here now but in any case what are you trying to elicit the fans for more or guilt support well. I remember going to talk to the guidance counselor and I was defending you and screaming and yelling at the guidance counselor and you said that compound tad calm down because I was trying to because I thought they wouldn't let you graduate they did they did they did and so that calmed me down that you did. He graduate with everybody body. That's a long time ago. Is that all you remember from the story. I remember being embarrassed that I was getting so angry at the guidance counselor food and it wasn't her fault about anything I mean maybe it was her fault. Maybe it wasn't my fault at all. Maybe she forged the signature. It was your fault for sure a fish or anything else you WANNA say no. I used supposed to get rid of me okay. You're sneezing a lot in there yeah. I'm fine all right. Thank you for thank you for the other thing. The other point was you always made was everybody else can get away with X. Y AND Z and I'm talking about like Devin Vigne did drugs and he didn't become a drug addict X Y and Z Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah but you always said that I couldn't not true that the things that David David did everybody else did but they did not wind up in the problem that David now so you know you know you're not aware I'm aware of it. I mean in terms of you know be making wise decisions. That's that's the bottom line making wise decision. Do you want you want to say anything about how great the two hundred episode episode. Oh yeah it was really great but how many titles were at the one hundred forty three rules. I think it was one hundred forty. Two Tudor count the Doodo. I think it was actually I don't. I don't remember him. If he said toodle is on the first episode or not maybe he did. I don't remember but it was. It's funny. Eh titles thing when Worcester sent me these clips and I listened to the clips and clips were very emotional for me to listen to when I listened to the totals clip. I was actually leaving this apartment and going to work and I left the door downstairs. I set out fucking toodle so it was what I was thinking and I hit tools and I knew that it was going to be a series of tools and at two minutes I'm like Mike. This is pretty funny and then at two and a half half minutes. I'm like Oh my God. It's still going and then at two minutes and forty five seconds. I said well I'll use two minutes of it and I'll cut it at two minutes and then I kept listening and I said wow this is just way too long to us and then I cut it I was like of two minds with it and then when it got to the end and I heard the last one I heard I remember that the last one was from the last episode and it was the episode where Chris and I were skyping and Chris was obviously high and I could hear it in his voice and the significance of it actually being the last time he said the word tutorials made me say I'm GonNa keep the whole thing and I also like I listened to that probably four or five times so that's like thirty minutes of turtles and I hated fucking tools but in the end I knew that it was great and that even if it was annoying to anybody very like it was necessary. I think it was important to play the whole thing. I think it's meaningful so you already at two hours and forty something minutes exactly exactly thirty seconds. Atkins are important tools that what are you looking at. I was just I was just fucking gazing into the distance here use different Tutto from each episode I mean it was all one hundred and forty two separate ones or did he repeat some of them. You have no clue. How could I possibly know I it was one hundred forty two different tools rules that can be on on your podcast Allen. You can interview about how many -Tudios they're actually work. The after dopey party is not going to be the any any allen podcast worry about McDonald's is going to have a podcast. Then probably Burger King is going to have a podcast. All of a sudden podcasting is big business is now I wanted to do a podcast from cats called the pod cats and and another brilliant did you hear did you hear all the names aims of Devon's not in the dopey nation group. God bless him but dopey nation group is literally obsessed with my father okay. There's a there's a post. The DOPEY Nation Group is Alan does a spin off podcast. What should the title be. Okay and then you have fetching with Alan. Then you have have do crazy which is my favorite and then the very the most clever one is is Alanon that really good senior in your dope wasn't so great senior job senior. Oh but senor dope could be great like is it's a play on senior. You're like Mr Senor. Dope and you're also the senior at senior though well well good. It's good. It's good that they keep you on your toes anyway. Thank you for coming in okay. Stay strong dopey nation there you go. Nice Nice Appearance Answer my dad and then the other thing in the end. We got caught from the day we caught but but we're like all right. We can't get credit for doing this anymore but we're still doing it. It's still on the rise. We're still they're using US in their shareholder. Meetings were about to have all these episodes and do all these amazing things out. It's crazy easy to have done those three. Things would have been amazing and like a couple of days before opening day at Yankee Stadium. We walk in. We like roll into the office. I'll happy happy and what what I really. I really felt like I was one of the Beastie boys at that point like I remember I was like I'm wearing shoes without shoelaces and fuck and dragon eye. I- scarves I was just a mess pre junkie junky. I was just I just had I. I had a style that was just a total mess like I would just often beyond on the ground. My clothes would be very I mean that wasn't the Beastie boys style. I I felt full of myself as though I was one of the Beastie boys but I had a very like want like my least favorite member of the Beastie Boys Devon ambulance to Devon has an uncanny resemblance to Mike especially when I was younger. No I mean he's just a little more scraggly than you now but it's still I mean no offense. Mike D when you listen to this that you were always remember but you you you know I met it. Mike D at catches and I told him how much I admired him and I think when I meet and I met add rob your cats too and I also told him and I feel you like when I meet people that I really admire. That aren't drug addicts. It's hard for me to I met Elvis Costello. It's hard for me to tell them about Dobie but when my cats is and his family is still there and I'm telling myself that I didn't mention dopey because Mike some big radio show in Hawaii so I take adobe card right and I give it to his like his stepfather some some father figure in his life and I said could you give this to my d. I don't know somebody might actually be listening when I come around to say because someone brought me to their like Brooklyn thing for their that big book that they did last year and it was really endearing oh man he was great. Mike D to them were great. I was moving because I have a friend who who's like new the beastie boys and stuff and he always said that Mike was Actually the Nice beastie boy and that he just gets a bad rap because of whatever right what anyway anyway it has nothing to do with anything so we were all in there and immediately like opening the door. You feel like there's the vibe live you just even before you could see anything. You could feel like something was wrong and then as like your is like two into what's going on. There's like weeping I don't remember that stuff into boxes there people crying and people and boxing their shit what I remember one thing that it was also so like the funny thing about MTV when we got to MTV in the first place it was like Oh you're at MTV Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah and then they take us to the kitchen and in the kitchen is a free Soda Machine Free Soda. This is the best thing ever and I remember thinking if nothing else you can have free soda all day and what an amazing thing and I think we got there in my recollection we get there the doors locked and there's a note on the door that says like where cancelled instead of care and then I go to the kitchen and the soda machine is gone and I was like this terrible memory of it but so the show was cancelled right before before we do other things so we freak out and run to the people who are hooking up our our situation but but what about the future empty me and they were like don't worry it's going to be fine. We're still GONNA use you. We're not gonNA use you for these segments because the show is canceled but this summer and this is how old we are. This summer is the Barcelona Olympics so as nine hundred ninety two. This summer is a Barcelona Olympics. We're going to send you and Dave to Europe a month month before and you're GonNa make your way and like with a very small amount of like money to live on enough for that. You'll be okay but not enough to live big and you're going to make secure way as we send us video dispatch things on your way to the Olympics and then be one of our live coverage people at the Olympics. I don't remember that at all either. Okay what happened that didn't happen. Why not they just started eventually ghosting us who is just like because they move onto the next big thing right. I think the next big thing was beavis and butthead to be honest this much it was cheaper to replace that it can really control those guys year than they can control mm-hmm so that was the MTV story. I don't know like if there's any real reason to have that on the show but I think it's a pretty crazy story and it was a dream deferred. A dream denied nine years later.

"Swede internship his family family had hooked up for him through like family friend why his father his father was a movie editor a sound editor really yeah. He did a mosquito. Oh coast and he did a bunch of movies and he had a connection. MTV and US being incredibly opportunistic. We were like well. How do how do we become interns turns. MTV So he he told us and we got the internship like that day yeah only where this guy actually did the stuff if he was supposed to do in the internship which was like logging tapes and stuff. We started just bouncing around the office and that's when my my whole like designs. Zahn success changed because I was just like if we get in front of somebody. All we have to do is talk to them and we do whatever we want and I love them. TV I I was like we should be on MTV growing up. I didn't have cable in Brooklyn where I wasn't Brooklyn until out out by coney island cheap said they over there. There was no there. We didn't have cable. I didn't have MTV growing up until like I was staying with you. Basically we had like what the hell is like their issue sixty eight which was like one of the channels on the past the thing that sometimes would show videos does and I think video music boxes are on there sometimes but like not regularly but anyway you when I when I started sleeping here. Dave would like to have the TV the on a lot like to sleep to me and just to have an MTV was on most probably right. I was very very interested in MTV when we were kids. MTV was it's pretty good. Though you know there was a lot of videos it was like the time of your TV wraps. It was like a good a good time to be interested in MTV. One hundred twenty minutes it was like pre bad. Reality shows and music videos were still pretty great and even before that they were better so like when we had the opportunity to be there and also like it was just just before all that. VH1 stuff was happening. I was obsessed with MTV as as just like rock and roll on TV and just like hip hop and the culture and uh-huh just I liked it yeah you know and so we basically started bouncing around the office right so we were working at this internship was at this like newsmagazine show it was it was a high school magazine show called like we care yeah and it was at like the subset subset of Viacom's major office not with all the mean. MTV people it was up by Columbus Circle closer to for people who would know man. Nobody knows nobody needs to know that but then so but basically it was like a fifth teen block walk down into the real one the the tower where all the like main. MTV stuff was happening and they needed people to bring back and forth tapes cassette tapes like big but bigger than usual size tapes. Weren't there a quarter inch tapes so we immediate or something else in tiered good for that because we didn't want to sit around a long tate and because we wanted to go to go and walk around and we would do that stuff they would give us they would give us two tokens tokens begins to take the train for their and back even those really close so we would pocket the tokens and we'd we'd stop and change the tokens at the arcade on the way for quarters and then we'd use some of the quarters to play video games and some of them to buy like pizza or something in between and then we'd go to MTV and we just like walk around and try and meet people and take the like free CDs freeze. ZV's the stacks of Promo CDs that were on every desk all around and it worked out and we met I mean this is going to be before most of the doping nations time but we wound up meeting Kurt loader and like hanging out with them he would smoke weed and listen to like burning spear and we'd walk in and hang out and feel close by. Are we talking story though I don't know I mean I don't know I think I wanted to tell the story because it's number one. It's like a great origin story. dopey story. There's no we was like our highschool. Drug use was not really attached to the are or MTV and we had this crazy. MTV like roller coaster ride that is like the next part of the story is this is especially as high school. Seniors was was crazy the rise and fall all in this one like year but it doesn't coincide with like our with any like high school well. I don't think there was much high school drug use at all periods you know the highschool drug use was like. I was very very very limited. You know I've talked about it. I smoked weed in senior year. I think you smoked weed before that and actually are drug. Argues actually started at the same time or do you had done. Had you done acid before now. I had not so also I mean my parents were had were stoner's through most of my childhood. They were old hippies and I think that that made me start smoking pot later than peop- deep than others. I feel like that was because there are people it all sounds like when I met people out in the suburbs who are like smoking to be cool or like they're like feel like clearly clearly presenting themselves as cooler because they were smoking and I was like well. That's what my parents so. That's also why you actually didn't become imus donor. I think I'm convinced that people who have parents that are totals donors rarely become donors but we didn't tell the Porn and the MTV story okay appointed porn on MTV story was that they put us on MTV. We became a little guys on MTV and it was cool. That's a whole story basically right well. A kind of it is it I guess so but it but it's that for that moment I mean and obviously I think blowing smoke people's asses is like a hallmark of of of like a lot of that world but there were at that time they were telling us there was that guy who is telling us you are the future of MTV they use our clips for their annual like Viacom stockholders meeting that year in Key West or wherever the whole thing was very troubling three hundred we I wouldn't say like the CEO of MTV and he would tell us it was very troubling and we were seventeen and it was really really definitely went to my head. You know big time because it was like it was all I had wanted and we came on air personalities for one episode. They had planned shooting a bunch of other stuff too. Now we did do the toy fair yeah. We did slaughter slaughter on areas. Their record release sats a little bit of adobe story because I think I was. I don't know why but we went definite. I went hanging out with slaughter. I totally forgot about it because it was made me so uncomfortable we we had to get to a hotel near up a storm in the other. They don't hear that and fucking. We went to meet slaughter. I tell yes he's fine. We went to meet slaughter at a hotel near Penn Station early in the morning unlike we actually didn't like slaughter so like I didn't want to go because it just seemed like such a bad thing to go and if you don't know slaughter was is a big hair metal band in the eighties and they had a song called up all night sleep all day and I didn't like them and I didn't like that seen why the unlikely care people thought it was funny to send us to do it because we weren't but that's not really funny of course -bility was not and we we went there and we had to we had to hang out with slaughter and think it was cool and I think it was also pretty uncomfortable for slaughter you know frankly and we we wound up in a limo with slaughter but we sat on the floor of the Limo because there were so many people in the bands that sat in the Limo right and plus the cameras plus the cameras so we sat on the floor of the Limo and sitting in the Limo made me so nauseous that when we got into a record signing in New Jersey and when we got out of the Limo I threw up in the story and it was like the reason it's such a dopey story. Because after are you know I became addicted to opiates. I was throwing up everywhere and when I would ever I would feel that insane nausea. I would always think of the slaughter not to mentioned slaughter in general just makes me nauseous. You know the whole thing was just like so weird and then we did we did a we hosted the segment at a toy show and so they screen tested us first they did like we did something in a studio. We did three little segments and they're like we're just going to show should show it to like screen testers. I don't I don't know what those and if you watch the bakery and test it was terrible you ever seen it. Yes you're recently now now. It burned an embarrassing and then they're like okay. We got back great reviews from the screen test. We're going to do two episodes. Don Live and we're going to see what feedback we get back from that and the air those two segments and then they said all right that was great. That went really well your next. We're GONNA. We're booking three more segments for you. We're booking Wesley snipes and Woody Harrelson at Madison Square Garden for White Magnon on the court of Madison Square Garden within yet to be named member of the Knicks Opening Day Yankee Stadium in the dugout. I don't remember the third one the third was big audio dynamite and Public Image Ltd concert and then to interview Mick Jones and Johnny Rotten afterwards tort that would have been pretty crazy fucked our heads up pretty bad and then we were ready to do all this stuff. I'm certain in my mind that it's it's all going to happen. Just like the whole thing you already like okay. We can't go to college next year. My Parent- My dad was like AAC is like if you take a year off from college you receive no financial support from our family. You know whenever you if you choose to go to college later he's like. You're either going to college right right away or you're not getting a penny from us and I was like we gotta do it do you. You're not GonNa do this but in my mind it had already happened. You know we had already made it big. We were rich and famous and you know fuck and Mick Jones and Johnny Lydon and the whole thing was happening and then we show up one day and the show. It's like days before the first one was going to happen which I think was opening day. Yeah it was the spring and we went to high school on the Upper East side of an and MTV was on fifty seventh street and Broadway meanwhile on a side note during in that time we get busted by our school for wasn't it wasn't yeah it was okay. I think so continue well. This is visit spring already and that was we had to take all those extra classes because of this now as it was at the end of the year. No no no no. No people don't like it when I quibble about details details that they don't want to quibble about your okay. I could be wrong. I've been wrong before so but also doesn't the story doesn't work as good that way. Well yeah why we're like right because that's the good part. Is that GONNA happen but the bad part was we had to like turn in every week the stupid i-i y log inter-college year log every week of like what we learned that the internship that year and then we were supposed to get our supervisor's eiser signature on it and we never we would always wait till till like Friday morning to do would like out sitting outside of school and then we'd sign the guy's name because we knew he wouldn't in care so that we forge every signature didn't I think the story that I remember was that at the end of the thing you have to turn in your whole I see why I log and we had done none of it so we did the whole thing the night before and he's supposed to sign the top of it and I was like and this is is the way I remember the story. I said I'M GONNA go over there and get his signature and you said well. I'm not going to go. I'm just GonNa forge the signature and I said you think that's a good idea and you said yeah. It's no big deal so we forged the signature. I don't know if this is true but I'll I'll.

'I won't back down': Trump commits to Syria withdrawal in call with Erdogan
"In December. Donald Trump surprised many, including it appears his own security and military advisers by saying he was pulling the US out of northeastern Syria, he said ISIS had been defeated and therefore the two thousand US soldiers stationed there would be returning home this caused a great deal of tension around the month bridge area, currently under the control of US, but Kurdish troops whom Turkey views terrorists talking non wants to take control of the area. President Recep tie other untold Trump in a phone call. Well, I login, yuck. Lee is a journalist based in estan Bush's on the line with me. Now Isla thanks for joining us. So the statement by Edwin follows two violent incidents in which US service people were killed tell us a little about that. That's certainly those episodes that you mentioned those that certainly has probably adding to US concerns about how long and in what shape this withdraw will take. We'll we'll take in northern Syria. President one blamed. The attacks on the Islamic state saying it's an attempt to influence the US. I would imagine he suggesting that I says what doesn't want the US to leave are one says that they are in a position to pick up the fight against Islamic state and finish it off. But the priority for Turkey isn't has never been as Llamas state, but the whi PG the Kurdish militia that spot alongside the United States against Islam state. So how far is unable to deal with the US in good faith. I mean, given the chumps advises seem to be rolling back the time line for troop withdrawal, and there appears to be little consensus between the president and his team. I mean who can do and believe in who is he dealing with? President devan appears to be banking on his personal relationship with Trump. The two men have spoken at least four times by my count in the past month, or so the Turkish president views the rust of Trump's administration with wariness he's concerned that they are not nearly as committed as Trump is to pulling out of Syria, and they want to impose certain conditions, don't they? That's right. I mean, there's key figures within the Trump administration, including the secretary of state and others have said that any withdrawal should be contingent on the protection of the white PG this Kurdish militia with whom US soldiers who fought alongside against Zomig. St. however, that is the the main issue here because for Turkey going into Syria as much as our says he's committed to cleaning up the remnants of Zomig state. The real focus for Turkey is the Kurdish militia there. They see a Kurdish entity on their turkeys occurred entity in southern border as a grave national security risk worry that it could stoke separatism among its own far larger Kurdish population is there room that for joint tuck as US operation. I think that that's something that Turkey has long pushed for especially for this town of members of flash point in northeastern Syria. It's where US special forces are still present where they faced attacks in recent in recent days, and which is under the control also of the white PG or the STF, which is a nother acronym in which the Kurdish militia makes up the bulk of the

He is at seven of thirty three Trevor ariza's kind of back to his normal rate at thirty four percent. But no, he really is not made a difference.

A three indeed type of player like this isn't gonna matter as much when you're just like so far below the Mendoza line of even being competent as a team that someone like that can get lost. And this is why I think there are a lot of players like this on good on bad teams. I should say that good teams should try to identify because I think there's a type of player who kind of the opposite of some of these high usage little bit more inefficient creationist, you know, your Carello Anthony's, your DeMarcus cousins may be guys who you know, offensively can kinda read your floor a little bit. But then you get them onto a good team in either not officiant enough and they take shots away from better players in. So maybe they don't help you. If you're good team. A reserve reserves probably an example of a guy who really can help you if you're a good team. But then if you're a bad team, you know, just can't really do enough to make much of a different.
