"Hello and welcome to Lights, Camera, Upkeep the podcast film about making, pop culture and and The Fast The Furious welcome to our very special episode Fast and The February where we're going to kick off... Uh sorry THE Fast and THE February because we have to make that distinction I'm so bad for always referring to this whole series as Fast and The Furious but it's Fast THE and THE Furious until the fourth one fourth. But i think the whole franchise is fast and furious because i feel like the fourth one was like when they tried a rebrand themselves as a franchise. You could so not to jump the gun too much on our reviewing of the first film which we both watched. I watched it today. This is fresh. They didn't know they were building franchise off this ad also knowing what i know about what comes later in the series they didn't know what franchise they were building off this. Yes permit is universal's largest and highest grossing franchise which is funny. 'cause like they keep trying to make other choices stick and they keep failing. It's like no this. Is your franchise live with it. And they're like we want something else. No you get the fast and furious and that's it. It's like that kid that we're fedora to school one day and then when he takes the fidora off comes in a scarf. Everyone's like you are not scarf. Kid you are fidora kid or tom for the rest of your life and you're gonna deal with that now labeled yourself so yes this is as you were saying in the beginning of a five month long project five months. We can't do all the films in that time that that's true but we are doing. What about hubs in shaw. It's a spinoff spin on this. Actually think we talked about. It's been awful lot but unrelated. Yes we are starting with the fast in the february the into due to march too fast which got march two furious. That's that's correct that we named these. We didn't india original movies where we're very confused. We're going by what we think. Sounds good but i will save the the second title. The second movie is phenomenal like that was marketing genius. It's also the only of the films that i've seen before we start this you. You've seen the second one that's interesting yeah. People told me that. Because i saw the second one. I was kind of really ruining my expectations for the series. But no i think. I was telling them exactly where they needed to be Then we have the fast and furious april drift where we will evaluate the third movie. Where they they really changed the naming like the you know that there was a group of people in a room that were like. How do we get three into this. Had we get the fast and furious but with three and they couldn't they couldn't figure it out. I bet you there was one where like one of the letters was switched with a three and they were like this will work and then for some reason. Someone is like tokyo drift. That is what we will go with and then we will finish off the watching movies with fast in may which is the worst idol of both of the movies and of our regards. Because they like. What do we do for the fourth movie. They're like okay. Do we stick with the whole colon structure and they were like now. Let's go back with reboot. And here's the thing. I know that they've gone through. Several directors throughout like their eras like. There's the rob cohen era or different people need. But i don't think that was like a reboot. 'cause that feels like a reboot like they're like okay. Now we're gonna be going with. The new director would go back to fast and furious. But now i. I'm going to imagine that it's more like the mission impossible series. Where there's never a reboot but you get drastically. Different directors like mission. Impossible to is a john. Woo film through and through and it does not fit with the rest And then in june which is the twentieth anniversary of the first fast and furious. We'll be doing a tropical cream of fast and furious. We're gonna evaluate all movies. We're gonna talk about them evaluate their tropes that they do. Boil down our thoughts in than really determine whether in the future there will be more willing to strap myself down for the final films just just for the tropical before that month. Watch all of the rest. Watch watch all of the rest yeah. Yeah we'll see. We'll see that that could be one of the discussions. We up watching all eight. I did not or maybe we both fall in love. Maybe by the time we're done watching the fourth movie we are. What is the term profess furious fan. I i thought that. I think it's the family. But that's taken is probably like i don't know two thousand kids were born in eighties.

We were kicked into this new journey into this adventure into this need for change because of suffering because we couldn't take it anymore because we're holding onto that glimmer of hope that something is better. Something is better out there. February is a right of passage. You cannot go to those big and beautiful places without spiritual power without something bigger and greater than you. There's reasons for this. One is because all of your human friends. Your lovers. Your confidence your companions. No matter how wonderful and beautiful and healthy they are they do not have access to your own divine path in your own divine mission. That's between you and where you came from. But also like i said before you need spiritual power to go where you wanna go to manifest. What you want to manifest. Because they're still the part of you. The can't even fathom the good. That is out there waiting for you. If it were up to you. If you were going to strategize system is in control it you would have kept herself stuck. So it's time to surrender. It's time to lean into lean on that enchanted forest. Your spiritual life so that you can be guided so that you can be inspired individual who is being carried to bigger and better places. Who's taking risks. Who's taking bold inspired action for what it is. That's on your heart. So how do we deepen and reawaken our spiritual life even by the way for those awesome folks out there that are daily spiritual practice people. it's essential in february do prioritize a morning spiritual routine. I want you to block out time in february to do seven straight days of a morning spiritual practice where you communicate and listen to the magic around you. I don't care what this is could be.
