All right so joey the other day when i was designed this game i asked you for a couple of Tech trivia categories guest. And you gave me three me retro tech tech personalities in gaining all right so i added two extra ones just to kind of things up for you. We have ancient tech as well as future tech. Then all right. So you're gonna have five categories even one fishing for mies category hours. Zooming your hands. But there is a little wrinkle Each category will be assigned random so each category has a so. It's a red yellow green and purple of that. Okay so you each time. I'm going to ask how do you give me a quarter colors and won't know what Category corresponding color and the number from one two or three hundred a guy. Okay one one hundred zero an easier question to be more challenging question The point of the game is to reach a thousand points so to the mathematically inclined. That means you have to have an average of two hundred points for question. So i'm pretty good at math. So if you get to territory where like. It's possible to win if you ask the question what you said about that. Impacts so Do you have any questions. No questions mount right now anyway. All right so. I guess to start off with and i'll be keeping score for you. Get my handy dandy cellphone here all right sunday to pick one of the colors so this basically the six primary colors except for orange okay. So we're going to do green read.

Paprika In Hungary
"Let's start today's travel. With rick steves with the role a little pepper from the new world plays in that tasty cuisine of hungary. Note that today's interviews on paprika galicia where recorded just prior to the global shutdowns pepperoni as the backbone of hungarian cooking as the crucial ingredient in chicken pepper. Cash and hardy hungarian stews from mild to hot. We'll find out why this spicy so central to hungarian identity. How to best buys and pepper on your trip and we're going to learn how you can spice up. Your own meals was well to get this education hungarian paprika. We're joined by to guide tonight studio from hungary. And leonard and george farkas anna and george. Thanks for being here. Thanks for having us thrill to be well. Thank you from coming all the way from budapest a long trip. And we're gonna talk about paprika. I mean when we think of hungary we don't know a lot about hungry sometimes. But we think of paprika. What's the connection actually public. A strong connection because it is actually from the american continent and it was The physician of christopher columbus or columbus who brought it to the old world to i not to hungary of course but to spain that through the commercials of the mediterranean sea it got to the ottoman empire and when the ottoman empire extended its political power to eastern century up. We glad to not only bad things that we also got things like the patrika. What are the coffee so paprika and cuffy came as your time in the ottoman empire in paprika actually from america via columbus actually us. So i like teasing are two members and americans who is. That's why to travel here. Righ- flying through the But i like my publisher hungary. There's something romantic about having paprika in hungary. And why does hungary embrace paprika. What does it mean to hungarian. I have great micro-climate lots of sunshine. And what is very important that when we got the paprika was a hot spice and it was the hungarians who grew the might version of it it is from the nineteen twenties when in a small. Get in sega. It was kind of discovered. And since then if you come to our covid market hall you can always buy tubers the mild paprika and the hot fabric honky now. George when i go to budapest i always go to the big market hall right. But it's the name of that. Hologhan bashar knocking hungarian big market or century. You can't miss it when you're a tornado in credits. The first one out of five actually that they built at the time. And what you're going to find is well everything that hungarian cook would want to find. But certainly find peppers. See when you look for the peppers in the market. Well actually. you're not looking for peppers you looking for paprika is already well there is. It is basically a huge difference because many people don't realize it in hungary. Everything is called paprika. Let it'd be around fat skinny red yellow sweet and hot so i'm a little confused. Then so because Is it a pepper or it is a but we call it paprika but we also called a powder paprika yes because when i think of peppers and my supermarket we've got yellow ones and green ones red ones and that all of that. We call paprika even if it's Any shape really And then you have. It already powdered. If you're looking for the paprika that you cook with powdered yes okay. So it's a very unique technique to powder because One of the things that you have to be extremely careful with how you approach paprika once you grind paprika after all the time you spent with it to become dry and ready to grind. You have to do it very slowly makers as soon as you pick up speed you burn the paprika and that remains throughout its lifetime because once you come to cook it again you have to be very careful with a not to burn it because then you just have to start over again tour guides from budapest anna leonard and george farkas are filling in on the importance of peppery cup in the cuisine of hungary right now on travel with rick steves. Okay so when we're talking about this have rica and i think it goes back the days when spaces were really important. I mean spice was big money in the early days of training today today at that time and originally now why was spaces in general very important economically for people well. It was a very important product. It was expensive at that time. It was not so easy to fly from one continent to other a trip two months of making food more interesting or is it a matter of preserving food actually spicy i got to the highest study stock chrissy those who had the opportunity to get products from far far away and paprika also i was introduced for the highest stock resi in hungary after people realised it is not poisonous because i it was considered a supposin and when they discovered that it has healing effect. You know it here the colorado and screw after it they started to make its production but it was a rarity and it was very expensive so at first who is just for the very wealthy and then you learn it. It helped as medicine against scurvy and cholera. Yes but also medication. Very often is a privilege of the wealthier class. Not available for everybody. Some
Xbox Series X review: A sports car with no gas
"Jump into this power at what cost. What are we getting the xbox series x. So i got my hands on this a while ago. This is a nice machine. it's nice it's i. use the word. Sleek people got mad at me on twitter. I don't really give a shit people. Get mad about everything but you instead could say simplistic. I like the design. This design works both vertically and horizontally. Once i put it in the actual receptacle for the stand and everything. I didn't mind it being horizontal. Vertical works as well. It depends on the system. Set up in place i will say it as one solid unit. That is for sure wherever you put it. You're not going to have to worry. It's also a fingerprint magnet. This thing will attract fingerprints from people not even at your house. There's a crime scene. The fingerprints will be on the xbox series x in fact. I'm not putting it out of my mind that perhaps microsoft's working with police on this because it is absolutely bat shit insane. How that thing can attract fingerprints from like fifty feet away. I burn my fingerprints off. They'd still know who who had it. So you get the system. Young package it you get your hd mike you plug everything and it's a fairly simple set up a rectangular box. What more is there to say. it's black. it's got a button on the front rejecting your disks and it's got a button on the front for sinking your controller with the bluetooth receiver. All of that kind of stuff. The typical stuff that you expect to see on a normal xbox system because this is a system like the playstation both are built a good deal on their brethren and were skin. See that win. I talk about things like backwards compatibility but also designed for the xbox in particular now in the back of xbox you have to. Usb's on the front. You have one usb. None of them are the us usb. C form factor. They're all just normal. Usb form factor you can plug in any external normal drive that you would have for usb and it'll see that also and the back you just got your hdmi you got your storage port for an extra envy emmy that you can buy and plug in and you have your power plug. That's it getting it. All set up is the next step. We're going to talk about so you plug this thing. In what happens. You have about a five to ten minute process where you take your old account and you move here. This is identical to what we saw with the xbox exits whenever you update and it's really not that difficult. Microsoft is made sure to make that onboard process. Pretty fricken easy you just sorta pop in and there's no issues there. It takes just a couple moments to get everything solidified setup and boom. You're in now. once you are in. You will adjust a couple settings for example like your privacy and so forth and connect to the net. That kind of thing. The wireless adapter in this i will say is probably better than the one in the x. The one in the original x there were some complaints about that including myself. I had some issues with it was just really susceptible to network interference. It was susceptible to other systems anywhere near it. And i have noticed with the series x none of those issues occur. That is a total boone. I'm not saying you wanna do this. Wireless and play wirelessly. You really can't beat a wired connection but that is a huge plus to see something like that on a system so onboarding. Fifteen minutes tops. You're in even if you don't have an account you just give it an e mail system and boom you're there now let's talk about the o. S because the os is important but we should all remember that. This is built on the backs of their brothers. Both houses for the new systems and assuming i switch three or whatever they're going to call it switch to switch to light. They'll all have some kind of basic backbone. That's the same and we see that with the xbox series x it's just the same exact a west because they don't really want it to be any different because they won't be people to be able to play on the series s the series x the xbox x. or the xbox one i think that makes sense including the x. cloud i think so you've got all these different systems are all basically set up the same way. They've gone away from the more horizontal kind of setup that we saw win. This system really came out and it's gone to more of a vertical setup as well as a nested kind of vertical menu. It works fine. Some people like it. Some people don't. I don't mind here. Removing pins and adding pins four games as quite easy so you go in. You can pick a game you say. Add to the home it pops up and now it also fills that with twitch channel streaming it and that kind of stuff some really good setup and very easy to overall just navigate when it comes down to it now when i say easy. I don't mean you're gonna find everything really quickly. I just mean that nothing is more than one or two or three steps away which i'm okay with even if it's a little bit cumbersome at first that's actually pretty nice i do get that some people just don't like that tile system and i absolutely agree i can see it not being the best but it works now here also. There's some customization that you can do for your background your screen. You can throw that up can take a screen shot of a game. Boom that can be your background all stuff that we've seen before this is also place where you can look at your storage. You can look at your sharing. What type of pictures you've taken. What type of videos but will get to that in a bit when i talk about the controller itself as an os. I went in. And i tested some stuff out now. First thing i did was. I went in and i wanted to see. How easy was it to move games back and forth with all basically identical system that we got with the original xbox it's lickety-split fast and of course even faster here because of the internal envy emmy which i'm gonna talk about a second. It's mind blowing. How fast this thing transfers and it can transfer games back and forth really really quickly so using your external usb even if it's a slower. Ssd if it's an actual normal hard-drive it's going to be basically at its top speed for transferring. Which isn't going to be bad anyway in writing out to. It's not really the issue anyway. Most of the time the more important thing is going to be taken a game off of it as let's say storage and move on to the actual envy me. Additionally this thing. I was playing different games. I was using quick resume. Which will discuss here in a moment. The os special features and i was using various different parts of the xbox series x the entire time. It didn't get warm at all. I know somebody said that. They burn their hand on it or something like that. But i have no absolute clue what's going on. There was no heat additions and it is not audible to not audible with anything else or above anything else. There's no jet kind of you know air coming out of this that we expect in some electronics. It's very nice. Super quiet may not necessarily have the best aesthetic for somebody who wants something completely modern in their home but to me. It's the way it should be now when you jump into the os and you start messing around. You'll notice a couple of things. For example you have the ability to support fourteen. Forty p ten. Eighty p and four k. That sort of a big deal because some people are going to be using this on a monitor and some people be using this on monitors or tv's which is a little bit less rare that support Some kind of free freesync. Which is your ability to have the sync up your display and your console which i'll talk about the second We found that competitor systems. Don't seem to actually use fourteen forty piece of fourteen. Forty p is pretty good. We've already seen one game. Jaka that supports fourteen forty p moat and supports it. Well probably the best out of all the different modes so that is something to just be aware of. I think fourteen forty p for a lot of gamers is sort of a sweet spot. So what you have is an os. That's fairly compact is not surprising. Isn't a big step up but does everything pretty much faster but we are gonna talk about some special features. That has the first is quick resume. Now this is sort of being big news. The big news. Everybody's been like attention. Alert at eleven pm. Forget the elections. Let's talk about quick resume. I told you guys. I wasn't incredibly excited about quick resume. I just wasn't. I didn't know exactly what i was going to get out of it. And i've had a lotta time with this and i can say that there are some instances where quick resumed surprise. Me for instance if you have a couple people in your family and your playing different games. That's great but that's actually not as important to me as just a person who may have two or three games. They play during a week. Not at the same day. So i don't mean somebody. Playing may be a single player game and then go into a multiplayer waiting for that to load up because there might be some issues there in fact with quick resume for example. He wanted to wait in the lobby to me. This is more important when it comes to just having a bulk of games that you may have loaded up in the last week or so about five to six current or next gen games and then a more when it comes to prior games. It's going to depend on the size of the game and you cannot from what i can see clear that quick resume and take it on board as more storage. Quick resume is an inborn function. I don't think you can turn it off. I could not find an option but what quick resumed does and this is fantastic as it takes a dump and of the game status and it dumps it onto the envy me. What does this do. Well this allows you to basically not necessarily kwiksave save. You can use it for that. But i'll talk about that in a second. It basically allows for you to save the state of the game at any point and jump to another game. It's also stunningly quick. Even really on games that. I wouldn't expect that that would be a big deal. I noticed that with quick resume. It was actually very nice. So if you for instance. Were playing a little bit of batman a little bit of witcher three which are games of tests on before you can jump into those and i will say four is a in particular is known for some agree just loading times so looking at the os you have free sink as well freesync basically syncs up your monitor and it syncs up your video card inside of your console and it makes it so that there's no tearing on your screen a lot of teams. Don't support g sink or free sink. This is a free sink machine and it will support that if developers support in their game so be aware that some games on the xbox ex did support it and the series x were hoping is that moves forward it continues to free sink. That's awesome that they do that. Not really helps especially in a console where you might be a little challenged for some frames especially as you get on longer in the tooth with these kind of systems and you are looking at two. You're looking at the xbox series s which this is not a review of but the xbox series s a different form factor because is cut in half due to the jeep. Houben half the size does the same thing and also has free support which is pretty cool when you think about it now. The next thing up is auto. Hdr hdr upscaling. Basically what this does is it can take a game and it can make it. Hdr or as close as they can get to color map it to hdr taking into you know various different equations than knits. The power that is actually being shown on the screen and your colors. Luminosity everything it works. Okay there's one or two games where sorta finicky but overall it's still actually works better than most. Hdr games anyway. How many times of the person who knows. Hdr sets a game up. Knows it's got hdr and still has issues with it. It really doesn't add any additional issues. It's just when it works. It works and when it doesn't you're like wagon can go back to a normal. Sdr game fantastic. I wanna see more of those kinds of systems and it was something that was very surprising. I think a lot of people did not expect to see this kind of situation pop up but what it does is it allows for those older games to have that high pop look and color that we get from. Hdr and we get from newer titles. Where didn't even exist back then. We'll see some improvements when it comes to the way they map that as they move forward so looking at those kinds of things i jumped into games and jumped into games both current and prior. Now when you look at the backwards compatibility slash enhanced slash four series. Let's talk about those just for a second. Basically what you have is backwards compatible games that are just guaranteed to run on your series x. They will run in the same form or fashion. Maybe was something. Upscaled via whatever's going on in the hardware on the series x. Then you have your enhanced games. These are games that microsoft is looked at and said to the developers themselves. Let's improve some things. Let's look at the engine. Can we get some extra frames. And they're sort of. I would say a grey area between those ones where there's a great deal of work to make it sort of be better. And we have that with some enhanced versions of first party titles from microsoft where some enhanced versions just have one or two things like maybe some increase textures may be draw distance. Something like that and then you have others where it's frame rate draw distance textures. That's going to be a little bit iffy on which game gets what support. The fact is most of them are free. So hey what do you say. Put it in see if it works. I have yet to find a backwards compatible game that was backwards compatible on the xbox that is not on this that means games work as well. I have yet to find any of my titles not work. It wasn't a while ago but there was a patch to fix the one or two games. That i actually had an issue with and they work stellar your main version though on your series x is of course games made for it and games made ported for it so yuccas one of them you can watch my review that can be a little confusing however one of the great things about the xbox series x and s and now your normal xbox will have it as a filter us going to your games and you hit a button and you'll look the filter and change it to enhanced for series s or series x hit one button boom the games that show up that are enhanced directly for our. They're very cool. That's the smart delivery kind of thing that microsoft has been pushing. And i got to admit when i jumped in here at first i was like man won't be no thing i know what games i'm talking about. And that got in there like the so many games and then there's game pass games which which versions do. What the cool thing about smart delivery. It knows the platform you are delivering on. So whether you're on windows and you're looking at your listing of the different consuls. You have if you've ever got a game on the windows store by the way don't because terrible or if you're in your system itself it knows what it's getting. It knows which system needs what and it gives you that. Now the only difference that might be as where the series x is going to play a backwards compatible game and there is no version of an enhanced or a port directly for it. You will get basically that just backwards compatible game but again you can hit that button. You can see that filter very useful worked fine and i got to admit i hope all systems in the future do that kind of thing when backwards compatibility is so pressured and so pushed so looking at the power this system. What you have is a massive amount of power in a small amount of space and it is really shown in two ways. First the speed of everything going into games and fast travelling and games is mind blowing even entitles that are no way shape or form as of yet optimized for the system which are threes. Fast travel is so fast. Regardless you'll see some video in the background probably I'll try to record some. That is so fast that it is impossible to read most of the longer hints. This also occurred in multiple other games that were in no way shape or form enhanced for the system. This also occurred by the way off of the usb external. I wanna make sure that's clear the usb external ssd. I did have that. I wasn't using seventy two hundred. Rpm hard drive or anything but the external was so fast that reading the hints was almost impossible. Actually had this issue on yakuza. Which is a game made for the system where we had a transfer of speed and this is something that all the competitors going to be doing something we'll see on. Pc once envy ame really takes off on pc as well. Where companies that do hints during their loading screens are going to have to figure out a new way of doing it. Which i'm okay with by the way. Because i think sometimes the loading screen was a chance for us to go. Take a pee right not anymore. They are blinding. Quick resume is also patched directly into this. I wanna talk about quick. Because though i discussed it a moment ago as a loading feature. I didn't discuss it in the. I'm going to now. Which is the actual quick resume itself. So not only. Do we see games. That really aren't prepped. For this being absolutely stellar when it comes to loading times when you jump in there with a game that is set up for quick resume it is phenomenal to be able to jump into and out of a game as quickly as we see here in a couple of games that are specifically made for this you can see that this kind of system and architecture and the jump to ssd is such a boon for the console industry. This is awesome. It is a huge difference. It is hard to even qualify this or quantify it to you guys without you seen it firsthand and playing it so jumping into all these games including games. That weren't quick resumed to see how everything loaded. We have some insanely fast loading times. We have quick travel times in. Which are that are in the one point. Five second a range. That's insanity you've got ones that are even a little faster depending on how close you are. I jumped in and out. I looked at quick resume. And i looked at the transfer speeds and i see the fps on some of these games upping especially the games. Unfortunately there's a couple of for that. I can't discuss but we see these increases in power and i think that that's what's telling about this console in particular. Is that microsoft decided. They wanted to on board people with a new system and new power. It's a little bit like reading your pc right but not switching out windows. You are jumping into a new ecosystem when it comes to the hardware but the front end probably won't be that much different and maybe you won't even notice it and that sort of the way microsoft is set this up for instance in a lot of games you go in and you just do one or two options. Four k or performance mode in yakuza. It was normal and a resolution mode. And if i switched to fourteen forty p than it was actually the performance mode so you had like normal performance and high resolution so you have these different modes that are sort of able to you. But it's not confusing. And i like that because when i talked about all these things these different types of software your backwards compatible your made for your enhanced your free sink. It can be confusing and microsoft has made it so that the things i talked to you about. You really don't even need to give a shit about because you will notice the moment you load batman and it's loading so fast that when you hit a button it's just the movies over and the game has started and you're sitting there going okay. That is the cool part of these systems. This new cpu power new gp our our gp power offer resolution. They offer the frame rate that we've been wanting as advancements in these consoles especially since we're getting away from mobile see pews but we're seeing it in a different way which is the loading which is very cool. It's not world changing. I will admit that it's not world changing. I'm excited about it. I enjoyed it. I think it's a huge boon but it's not world changing but at the same time it's improvements in a place we haven't seen before we have been tied down to that. Ancient architecture of old hard drives that have always just creaked along and just you just waiting for the spindle to start going on rare rare. When you're like oh my god it's dying and here with ssd it's just nothing. It just works. However i did have a couple issues. I wanna bring up the first issue other than some issues with the os is. I jumped in. And i use quick resume on three games. I know support. It and i bounced in and out about nine times in out into the other into the one into the out of the other one about the fifth time twice so i did this ten times about every fifth time i would load into a game and there would be a moment where the controller and the xbox didn't know i was there and and the character the game would be running the sound would be running. This is a small thing. But i just want to mention it because i'm assuming consumers are going to notice this and nothing happened and i'd be like whoa. We'll i'd have to hit a button a couple times and then it'd be like oh and the character move yet when i went back and forth back into it. It didn't happen. It's almost like the second or third returned to that game. There was a momentary issue. Not a huge deal but something you should be aware of also when jumping into and out of these games be aware saving the state. Okay so if the game is not quick resumed capable you could possibly end up having to save. That's all the way back at a quick save area. I would personally say quick. Resume as great but make sure game supports it with the icon. That's the filter. Because if you don't and you do think you're doing quick save and quick resume and you pop out and then pop back in. It's going to go back to the main title and you can end up losing whatever cover or whatever you know. Save that you actually had. This is also something. I noticed because in some games i would drop in out in the game would say we've lost connection with controller. A this is important. Because i know some people are saying i want to be able to play a multiplayer game and have it loading up into a lobby. That may take me a long time to get into and then play a single player game and occasionally go back and forth now. This isn't instantaneous. When you're quick resuming so be aware that but additionally you will occasionally have the issue where it just pops in and it's lost connection and it sort of has to be reminded that you're there with that caveat it still works really well and with that caveat of the frame rate being a little bit honky on the fourth third tenth try. It just works the way i expected it to work. It works awesome. The os does exactly what i expected. So when you look at this system. The next big thing is the controller. I don't know how long i'm going. What are we. We're at twenty five minutes. Oh my god. I gotta shortness up. Anyway i'm gonna talk real quick. I'm not so you've got your controller. Standard controller exports controller. Not the elite improved d pad. I like it not bad. And it's got usb c for power it's got your Normal microphone and headset connection. It also has a share button right in the middle. Now i gotta say something about the share button. The original power button on the xbox controller would do most of what the share button. Does i not a big fan of the share button on on the system in particular because it really doesn't do much that we couldn't have done anyway and there isn't really any type of twitch or facebook or streaming suite of any kind that i can find inside of the xbox to help streamer sort of share stuff. Anyway you can share to your timeline and that kind of thing but not really necessarily more quickly that button press also showed me that the time for recording for the length of videos is not very long. I think it was three minutes for ten. Adp that's pretty short. And i don't know if that as is actually extended somewhere else. I did go into the configuration settings and adjust that but it wasn't necessarily entirely happy with how that all sort of ended up a rolling out the controller itself. You have the basic standard controller the signal this works with all the xboxes and has what i consider to be one of the better batteries that you can actually find. Controller lasts a long time and well sorry. I didn't mean batteries. But i meant you can put your own batteries in there. It's got the hibernation that lasts longer than almost any controller now hibernation that microsoft uses that allows the controller to go into a low power mode allows for your batteries to last longer. I apologize so you do have what i consider to be one of the better input devices like the triggers. And i know we've got some competition out there with haptic triggers. That kind of stuff. It'll be interesting to see how those work. But overall i liked this controller of been a huge fan and technically. This is sort of exactly what. I wanted from their controller. Other than voice input. Which i've talked about at different times now when you look at this you've got your control you've got your system you've got to set up you plug it in and he start playing your games. Your store works pretty much. The exact same way as everything else and what you have with. The xbox series x is and the s in a slightly lesser way but the s also has the envy improvements. What you get is a system. That once again is sort of muted in. Its presentation of the improvements. They're there but they're not instantly noticeable yet. Open up the os and you're like. Hey this looks the same. You open up a couple options you like. Hey this looks the same. And then you load a fucking game. And you're like this is definitely not the same so you really do have to start experiencing the titles. The yoga's some others legion. Those kind of things within the ray tracing start seeing some stuff and be like. Oh i get it and i know that we all have differences and what we want. There are people out there that have no issues with thirty. Fps they want all the trimmings on some games they want him super high resolution super high amounts of effects. They don't mind the fps for instance. In let's say yuccas is turn based but then they wanna play their quake or something like that as a super high resolution as are super high frame rate. I think what we're getting with the series x is that ability to choose between all those and microsoft's making it pretty easy at least so far to identify how to do that or ninety nine. We're going to talk a little bit about price. Four hundred ninety nine dollars for this to ninety nine for the series s and this is not a review of the series s. I just wanna give you some prices in there somewhere. Is your ex as well as your original for ninety nine is a lot to ask somebody when you're not really offering some kind of brand new number of exclusives i don't think is actually and this is just me being honest i don't think anybody's Giving a high number of i guess. Ip's that our brand new that. I'm really excited for the first year. Maybe no neither. Neither competitor is but what we're getting is backwards compatibility and game pass. Xbox is going the way of value to what they own and have and making sure backwards. Compatibility is not just. There is improved in in automatic ways. For instance of freesync that might work for your xbox original game for instance. Hdr automatic for your prior games. That's a big deal and something that we're not seeing other people do. That's very cool about the series x four ninety nine. That's a lot of money. Then when you look at their pricing structure they also have a pay as you go kind of system where you can use them. Use their credit and you can get one for. I believe thirty. Four ninety nine which will also include game pass. I'll say that unless you're a really high end gamer if you haven't x. Right now that's probably okay because this system is offering improvements the x. Already offer some improvements for backwards compatibility and we can see how the first line and i wave of hardware actually goes out. We've seen red brings. But i've i've seen no hardware issues with this at all. It's been in fact. Phenomenally robust other than the fingerprint attack. But i think four ninety nine is a big ask from a normal game if your game. That wants the newest and the best. This thing is so many orders of magnitude more powerful than the prior systems. It's pretty mind boggling. Especially when you just take into account the gpu and the cpu and the ram. But now you're taking into account your ability to ray tracing and the ability to have that s in there and just move stuff lickety-split and improve every single game in some way automatically which sometimes it feels like even on a pc. You won't get that. Because maybe you'll put a video card in but it cpu bottlenecked or its hardware dr bottleneck and you need new hard-drive four ninety nine a big ask. It's probably a wait for a little while for four ninety nine unless you can do one of the payment plans. Or you're a premier gamer. You need the best of the. This is for sure it but it's a large amount of money in a certain economy. Where maybe that's not really necessarily what you need because these systems offer the same thing as you will get with their prior systems just way way better
Billy Joe Shaver, Seminal Outlaw-Country Songwriter, Dead at 81
"Well, Here's an interesting story. One interesting fellow that many this may not know about. You know his music Billy Joe Shaver. Seminal outlaw country songwriter passed away at the age of 81. He had no unspecified illness was in Waco, Texas. He's a Texas native. In fact, he burst onto the scene in 1973, a debut album entitled Old Five and Dime. Er's Like Me. I was known for contributing the Outlaw country movement. Who's friends with Willie once our shaver, as you said he called him the greatest living songwriter. His songs recorded by the likes of Johnny Cash. Elvis, Kris Kristofferson, Jerry Lee Lewis. His rep said his hardscrabble songs reflected his tough life dropped out of high school hitchhiked, drove trucks across the country, married and divorced. The same woman three times for him can't be too sure, and the 2007 shot a man in the face outside a bar in Texas. It was acquitted of the charges, claiming self defense had a heart attack on stage Andrada memoir about it 2005 and Title honky tonk hero. When he was young. He lost the top three fingers in a sawmill accident. His son, Eddie, died of a heroin overdose in 2000. He was inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame Year was 2006. For that was also a member of the National Songwriters Hall of Fame that that honor in 2002 Americana Music Association gave him a lifetime achievement award for song writing most recently last year, the Academy of Country Music gave him the Poets Award. So they both may wise Williams shaver together hard to be an outlaw crack shovel. It'll go right. And it's hard to be the only thing. This was part of it. I think this was in one of those TV shows that Kenny Rogers did those that called a gambler. And I think this song is willing. Elsa was in a couple of those with willing with Kristofferson was in One or two of them in that bunch. That song was in that

All right now, serious question honkytonk man said that Vince wanted to repackage him in nineteen eighty-eight. Did you hear anything about this and what would the repack have been that comes to us from Adam? The Falkland. Kitchen as he was just started off talk man if you've been there year two years. Never. J Maher says there was a pay per view or Honkytonk man came to the ring singing his Honky tonk man song he was really far behind the beat wasn't a worked having be off like that or was he unable to keep the beat oh? Just fucking awful. Is a fun story here that lots of people wanted to know about from Cape commentaries are man Sean Oliver sat down with King Kong Bundy. And he said that Honky tonk man used to dine and dash at restaurants without paying honky. Tonk man denied this. And he would even say the King Kong Bundy never left the tip for anybody anywhere. And then Honky tonk man says that well, that's not true. Or I'm sorry King Kong Bundy says that's not true hockey talk man. Says that He shouldn't have to tip. He's almost like reservoir dogs on opening scene. And think I'll talk man says, why should I give you extra money? Because you brought me my drink and didn't spit in it when I can spend money on my family or something like that. Dino about hockey talk man either dining and dashing, or being the world's worst tipper. I do not. There are a lot of guys that you view it that way. That's why would I see the steep shamming? Character, there were dogs slight. Yeah Yeah I've played that scene out many nights. Other. Never heard the OC. Dashed. In this photo says honky versus Valentine at wrestlemania seven would have been a decent match with a story line rather than just having Valentine job out to quake. What were the plans for Honky? Had He not left? I think he's talking about Nineteen ninety-one here. Me would that have been in I mean. Did you sort of have that circled in your mind's eye before he got shown the door Valentine? Versus, Honky. I think that's probably where they were going. Broke up the TAG team. Yeah. I mean, that's logical. That's what they built for all that time. But. Yeah I was I was shown the door Conrad is fire. Fire. I'm pathetically sterling pingree wants what would it sound like you? Honky, Tonk man saying with my baby tonight.

And she said wants to know, hey, bruce, how harass on a scale of one attended a look when haughey had to reposition himself in the correct spot for warrior to do the running splash on him. It is pretty bad. He was saving his own life is. was like God bless you man? You know here's the thing I think and we did sort of gloss over that because fans so familiar with it, but really brings up a great question. He says, has there ever been a bigger star making moment then when Haughey put over warrior at Summer Slam Willie says I struggled to think of anything even on that level maybe Kane's debut. But Dude I know we sort of poke fun at the Gimmick every now and again hockey had white hot hate people hated him people wanted to see him lose and for him to come out there and that outfit that's he and shit all over everybody all beat up whoever? And then the warriors music hits and it's so the fans were already digging the warrior and you could tell that they were getting behind him but this is sort of. Phase one of the big warrior pushed. That's going to make him the top star in the business in like eighteen months and I don't know that it would have been as big. Had honky not helped him light the match here. Would you agree? Oh, absolutely. Not In still to this day even if you don't have all of that background, do you have? It still goose bump inducing moment because it was just so big honky went out and set the table..

The old jumpsuit here and explained in a speech that he had a vision of the character he went to black hair and sideburns, and even described the character as a grease ball and he hoped it would catch on and give him a boost. said, he needed a name and driving along the Gulf coast here comes the song on the radio I'm a Honky, tonk. Man. He's off to the races. He thanked Hogan chance in the company and he said W did something haughey cannot do with the character they gave it life no promises no guarantees just opportunity. And he said quote, they presented this character to millions of people on every corner of the globe. They made this character, a household name because of WB this character will never die. This character will live forever and that's the power of wwe. Or all this I'll be forever grateful to WWe it. Really truly is an honor to be part of such an incredible family. I thought it was such a classy in great induction. In. Honky tonk man you know. Man Maybe I'm not communicating it right Bruce but I feel like at times you talk man as misunderstood individual because you see something like this anything man what a fall awful insightful appreciative guy. But then you see him Hammond up on shoot interviews anything we'll hang on who is that and then part of me has to remind myself he's playing a character he's trying to get future shoot interview gigs he's trying to keep the gig going he's working brother Wink wink right.

Honky tonk man wasn't a bodybuilder by any means. What's he ever put on any weight loss program or because? Elvis was overweight. Was it better for the character that he wasn't too jacked up? He wasn't fat hockey was in good shape he. Well, I don't think that's the insinuation I. Think the the inference here is he doesn't look like the ultimate warrior and we've always heard that Vince was quote Unquote Body Guy. But he made exceptions for big characters like the Honky tonk man right. Character you're an athlete, you can go it really doesn't matter. He kinda get hot on it. Do. Get hot about it. I can tell.

"These survivor series showdown we've got Bret Hart Painting Hockey and a one on one match, and then if the ninety survivor series, we see rhythm and Blues Partner with Ted. On his million dollar team. Along with the debuting undertaker to take on dusty Rhodes and his Dream Team, which is the heart foundation in Kobe. Beware of course, we all remember DB Ozzy was the only survivor from that team. And at the end of nineteen ninety. Greg Valentine began do what Unquote K. fehb argue with honky about Jimmy Hart interfering in their matches and the rumor and Innuendo was this was supposed to lead to a feud between the two both Honky tonk man and Greg the Hammer Valentine never wound up happening on TV. And I think a lot of that is because Honky Tonk me and briefly joined the commentary table with Vince McMahon and Roddy. Piper. But honky would complain that he couldn't get a word in edgewise with Piper there. So winds up leaving the company in Nineteen. Ninety A lot to unpack here pretty good little one year run for the team. It does feel like we're going to see them feud with each other. It doesn't happen instead he wants up at the commentary desk for a cup of coffee and then he's Outta here. What are you remember happening here with with Hockey Talk Man Greg, Valentine than him transition and commentary, and then immediately leaving. homeboy. We're looking for something for some different for hockey to and. We had roddy there we vince. Liked to three man booth. So the idea was basically try and recreate. Different Way. The Vince. Jesse. Bruno. With vents and Ravi mainly doing play by play and color hockey to kind of be the analyst. That was hobbies role wasn't to say a lot. It was to provide you know bits and pieces and still be colorful still be entertaining. But yet ostensibly to. Baby face announcers or a play by play guy color guy that's. baby face, and then your analysis, your analyst was. A heel. and. It just wasn't the greatest thing in the world and I remember one day. Being in in the play by play, and this was one of the infamous John Philip Kelly who was the executive producer who was guy responsible for my first firing. Response I was responsible. I was an Astle but it was one of our big arguments in in the voiceover booth because hockey. We just got done doing the cameras and everything and hockey has hair all slicked back all greased up and everything. and. Piper. made a comment. To honky after hockey had like made a derogatory. Comment to to hop I mean to Piper Piper goes. Yeah. While you agree ball man I think you missed a spot back there. In Filippini's shut it now. Maguire shutting down. He says, she can't call him a grease. Ball. He can't calm grease ball look at it. It's something that. He missed the spot with the grease right. In his hair, right? And he's like. What he called him a graceful said Yeah. Because of Greece's Harrison. Jamaica spot. Grease Ball you missed a spot fucking Greece's hair. In the fifties and they called researchers. Guy With all grease in their hair, you know. Is a no, that's derogatory to Italians. But he's not Italian. He's a southerner with fucking greasy hair. He's an Elvis Wannabe. Walk your you talion. No? Okay and I'm asking everybody I think most of the people in the room were tally said anybody here this offended by that? No one was offended because. Here's hockey talk. Man. With. Greece in his hair and Piper call increase fall hey, you missed a spot. That was the beginning of the end with the belly, but we didn't care for each other. But it just it just didn't it. It was clash I. think that combination with the he'll analyst just didn't really work. Do you think he wanted to stop wrestling he was tired of being on the road he was looking for something different was the pressures the home what made him think? Maybe, now's the time to try something else. Live don't really. I. Don't. Think it was really honky decision I. Think we went to Honky instead. Hey. We want we wanted to try this. This is something that that Vinson I had discussed. About the three man booth to to lighten Piper up a little bit. What I mean by that is you didn't have so much roddy. Right get a third Kinda. Even that album. Pro Hockey and Honky. Was Like L.. Try. When he wants up. Winds up after his release trying to leave. You remember. Feeling like man we're letting him go with too much meat on the bone or had the relationship deteriorated a little bit by this point was he just burn out what is your thinking when when he winds up leaving? I. Think. We've done a lot with honkytonk man and it may have been time I. Don't know what else we could have done more during that period. But. It was. Time to go in lot of respects. But you. You grow accustomed to the people and you liked the people, one way or another dislike of one way or another in. for me I was just got like like Wayne's rock and roll fairest to me just all coming racing recombination team of all time. We should mention that Greg Valentine believe it or not winds up leaving as well he doesn't live. I.

"Risk Okay. But listen, it's not people saying that on the outside it's the fucking Honky tonk man who says they want me to lose and I said, no no, let's just go down there. Maybe he did. Let's play that out. Let's play it out. So the original idea according to you was. He's GonNa drop the intercontinental to randy savage and then randy savage is GonNa go in the tournament and unify the intercontinental and world title and nine that at one time well, then I never I never heard I never heard that. He wanted hockey to drop the title. The deal was shoot the angle to bring hulk and savage together. So you don't believe that that Honky was asked to lose title here. I wouldn't surprise me if he was in that he refused I wouldn't surprise me at all I'm telling you that I don't know that and I'm not going to lie to you like Dave Meltzer. Jesus and tell you report rumor and Innuendo if hockey says that happened then hockey was there he would know if it happened or not. I wasn't there for that was I their early on for the idea of Radi savage winning the title at Wrestlemania Four. Yes I was I can speak to that I can speak to that directly because I was a part of that. I witnessed that I heard that I was a part of that in was I ever a part of hearing a story about hockey refusing to win the title in that the ideal was randy savage to win the intercontinental title indeed. To win the WWF title, no, that discussion did not happen. Not with me. Audubon. It. Ought about it because again, I'm not calling Honkytonk Man Aligarh that'll probably get out on the fuck it sheets also the bullshit and how people fucking misconstrued things that you say instead of actually listening to what the Fuck I say. And it's hang on to exactly what I'm not hang out listen when exactly saying is. Is that yes. There was a plan early on for savage. was there ever a plan for DB AUSSIE NO? was there discussion amongst the boys amongst people but what if it would? A great champion. Sure. Yes. As far as plans what we were doing at that time to put hulk in savage together to get to the fucking Hole Andrei Shit. wrestlemainia foreign the tournament and crown savage. That was planned early on. Okay well hockey talk man allegedly. Spoke to Jim Barnett. During this time, it was even considering jumping ship over to the W. A. Slash what's going to become WCW. And he says that Vince was furious learning this. And I think honky felt like he had no other choices because no one was communicating with him or telling them what the future plans were. And he says, he got a vibe from the office after this, he couldn't be trusted. So let's poke holes in it. Let's play devil's advocate. Did you hear? Of Honky Tonk man pushing back at all did you hear him speaking to Jim Barnett? Did you hear of there being a threat of him perhaps jumping ship? Did you hear events perhaps losing faith or confidence in Wayne? Ferris here. Yeah, totally lost faith intimate it was so horrible that we kept the title on him for another nine months. They think about that. If this lost faith in envinced in like him and didn't want him around and didn't trust him the why would he leave the championship on him for another nine months in build haughey as much as we did. That make any sense. Well. Okay. Perhaps sour grapes from honky. But it doesn't make sense to you. That's question. Does that make sense this guy? You cannot be trusted I don't like him. He's he's a malcontent he's all this so. I'm going to. Leave. My biggest championships and I'm going to feature him and I'm GonNa Invest, all this time and money in him. Because, he can't be trusted. Beat pretty straight up and a handful of months here very very quickly. And, he doesn't really do much after that. From from September until fucking the next August. No, no, no, no, no, no no we're S. that's didn't know another. No. No. Let's run through this. I gave you a hypothetical. I told you this happened on the main of where they did the double hefner bullshit and early eighty eight. So that would have been what February. March.

They did know this rod was in there. Right. Well. Let's talk about the feud here. It's going to culminate wrestlemainia three most people remember that or she had jake come out with Alice Cooper. Forehand honky would be interviewed by Mary. Hart. And Haughey's gone on record saying there are so many people in the building that day that from his perspective when he was in the ring, they all looked like ants because they were so far away. But he said that the schedule was so hectic that he had been on the road for something crazy like fifty days straight and I'm sure that's a bit of an exaggeration but. It was a crazy breakneck schedule. This is because that he couldn't have enjoyed this as much as maybe he would have liked to. But he did remember that was jake side. The have Alice Cooper involved and analysis was very nervous holding the snake and Honky was talking so much trash during the manse that Alice almost forget the jump in the ring as a reminder Jake would wind up on the losing side of that match. Honky winds are grabbing the ropes score that tainted pin. It's a big moment I mean is this the biggest moment in wrestling history? Do you think I'm not saying that to be funny but wrestlemania three, he's to be up there right? Off The wrestlemanias definitely especially for that time. It was the first and the biggest of those big stadium shows on a grand scale.

Key was originally meant to be a transitional champion the only hold the title bell for a short period of time until Jake Roberts failed drug tests following wrestlemainia because of that ocoee was booked to remain champion for what would wind up being a record setting run. Before we talk about the other rumor that everybody thinks we're going to get to and we are. Europe, this the case that the original plan was or jake to become intercontinental champion, and then maybe his substance situation gave Vince. Paul's otherwise. I don't really know and that was when I was first coming into the company. So that may have been something that they talked about previous. I know that the idea was to go with hockey and Jake Post Wrestlemainia. But you know hockey getting the Intercontinental Championship was kind of a fluke thing with steamboat. After Mania I I don't really know if they river planning on putting it on Jake or not. Eight. Don't think.

Of course we know Jimmy's favorite foods, her beans and teeters. So that was the special there. Canned beans containers. This is what your boy Jim eats on a pretty steady diet. So we freestyle that here on the show which I realize was years ago and it was a deep cut for you. But there was the double entendre of Baynes entails. Yes you're right. Beans tasers.

His first major feud boys a big one. It's with Jake the Snake Roberts and this is Ryan as Jake is turning baby face and this would be the first few. That was sort of set the tone for his run as a fan favorite.

Then got this cave like set to recreate Stone Mountain Georgia of the snake pit. And Hockey is GONNA attack, Roberts with guitar that didn't shatter like say up. Jeff. Jarrett Guitar. Ten years. Later. Instead, Jake appeared to take a very stiff shot and after staggering collapses. And Jake is even said that. I think Pat Patterson's man. Louis. went out to buy the best guitar he could for the segment. But they didn't really gimmick it. So two desks and his neck explode when he gets hit and you can even see the J. because idleness feet. And he said that his wife was even pulling fiberglass pieces out of his back. For weeks after that. And for better worst jake would even say that this is the moment that he started to become dependent on prescription painkillers. And of course, hockey disputes that saying that? The Guitar. So Gimmick he almost broke it with his thumb. Talk to me a little bit about this. I know this sort of predates you but I'm sure you've heard that story that. Man. This is what me in a bad way. Well. As far as determining gimmick wasn't there I heard story that they did give it the guitar however. There in most. Guitars least decent loans that you actually want to play they have a rod like a stabilized rod that goes right through the middle of the damn thing. And no one knew. To go in and take that out. To buy really cheap shitting guitar, the wouldn't have that in it. So. Win. It may begin beginning. But when Wayne hit Jake apparently this rod is what hit him with no given it. because. It's a stabilize. In that's what really fucked J. UP.

If events calls bill watts and says just want to make sure that dog is really finished up with you.

Most haunted nightclub in America. Sharon didn't like working on the desolate strip of road that led to Bobby. Mackie's she wanted to be closer to Cincinnati where there were always people around things got too quiet here. The silence left too much space for her own thoughts after the last song played on the Jukebox in the patrons had finally left. She mopped the floors wipe down countertops. The windows would shake slightly but she'd been told not to pay attention to that the regular joke that it was some vengeful spirit. Sharon suspected the cause was far more mundane cheap glass and poor construction Sharon unplug the jukebox took one last look around the place. It had never shined like the Chrysler building, but it looked clean again. She went through a small door in the back which barely clear head and up a small staircase to the tiny apartment above the bar she called home. Living and working in the same place took its toll. She had nights where she dreamt that she was trapped like puzzle winter. Tower. The whole world could change around her and she'd be none the wiser locked up above. In the light of day, those dreams seemed more than a little dramatic at night. However, they almost felt prophetic. This building held whatever pieces of herself she'd sewn together. If she ever dared leave, they would Holland raffle long strands pulling her into the strange dark well in the basement, a relic of one of the bars many other lives. As she claimed the steps. She. Saw someone waiting at the top for her. It was a woman wearing a faded dress. The intruders swayed on the step her hands clasped around her throat.

But just before they made contact but women disappeared into thin air. Wave of nausea overwhelmed. Sharon. It was hard to describe exactly what had happened. She had built something hut pass through her body. She suddenly realized she'd never heard any footsteps even as the woman was charging at her. She reminded herself that she was tired. It had been a long night of tending to customers. She was probably having a waking nightmare. Sharing continued up the steps. nauseous. started to dissipate the heat was long-on. Sharon entered the cramped quarters she called home. Then sat down her small vintage chair it had come with the place in certainly wasn't her style, but she may do. After a while the familiarity was comforting. She untied her shoes. Let her body relax for the first time in days. Sharon's head felt heavy she didn't want to move. She let her eyes fall shut telling herself that she was just taking a quick power nap. She'd go to bed soon. She woke to the feeling of serrated metal teeth pressing into her neck. Sharon's body jerked involuntarily the blade dug into her skin. She screamed knowing that no, one would hear her. There was only highway and the river beside the nightclub. She was alone. Horizon. Went. As, adjusted Dhaka's. There was a man leering over her. His hand shook with the weight of the saw in his hand. In. The haze of retired mind she wondered how he entered when everything was locked up tight for the night. She told him that there was a safe downstairs, but it was empty. He didn't want money.

"I've had for years box. Dvd set that celebrates the Chicago Bulls six championships in the nineteen nineties. The title is NBA Dynasty Series Chicago Bulls Real quick takeaways couple takeaways Scottie. Pippen totally underrated. I I mean. I know he's considered a legend and one of the top fifty basketball players all time. But but he's even better than that as far as the goat discussion. Greatest of all time between Jordan and Lebron James. All right I conceded. I think it was a year or so ago that Lebron has probably taken that title. I'm more than willing to be argued that I'm more than willing to be argued wrong as a Chicagoan but one thing is for sure after going through some of these. Dvd's Jordan is so much more fun to watch. I mean he just. He spent so much time doing beautiful things. High up in the air way above Lebron's had would have been so That's just a blast to watch now. You can't this is kind of a sneaky. Pick you can't stream this. Dvd set so. I'll take this occasion as an excuse to mentioned that. Espn's ten part Michael Jordan Doc. The last eight they move that up it was gonNA come out on June nineteenth. Yup the release date is April nineteenth. So obviously I can't wait for that listeners. I can maybe loan you my bulls box set because it isn't streaming but otherwise just look for the last dance this weekend on ESPN. I will be watching it. Yeah I have not seen the set that you are watching but I cannot wait for Sunday night. When the ten part doc starts it's been this mythical thing that's been rumored to be in production or potentially production for some time new house coming out and ESPN wisely bumping that up. I think it's something that a lot of people just like us are going to be watching my number three these fall under the category of blind spots and in this case there is a specific hook to Josh. Though it wasn't by design all explain it's my unofficial slash official. Bruce SURTEES MARATHON. So one day. I realize I'm kind of running out of options in terms of things that are really hooking me on net flicks and I know that there are some things I should get to real cinematic blind spots that have been mentioned on the show over the years that I feel regret about but they just seem heavy. I'm not ready for it yet. I need stuff. That's under two hours. I can knock it out and I needed to be reasonably entertaining but I do still WanNa feel like I'm getting some homework done. I do still want to feel like I've crossed something off my list that I felt for some time that I needed to get to so I went over to Amazon prime. And one of the things that popped up happen to be dirty Harry the first dirty Harry movie with Clint. Eastwood Don Siegel directed and right away. I realized how stylishly shot it was and so after I watched it I looked up who the DP was and I see that. It's Bruce Surtees. I think yeah I know that name. I can't really tell you what else he's done. I don't know much about his history's legacy at all but that is a name I have heard and oh I'll just file that away okay. So what's next? Couple of days later I go back to prime one of the film's POPs up. Lennie the Bob. Fosse directed film about Lenny. Bruce and that really is one for me. I've always been ashamed because I adore. Is You know all that jazz. Fosse's film I like cabaret quite a bit as well and in the TV series Fossey Verdon some of the making of Lenny POPs up in that TV series it. Of course POPs up in all that jazz as well. A lot of cutting to scenes of the fosse alter Ego Joe Gideon cutting the movie. That would become lenny so it was kind of just been a joke for me that I've never watched this film. I decide I'm going to sit. And Watch Lenny and. I'm watching the credits. And whose name POPs up is responsible for the Black and white cinematography. It's Bruce Thirty so then decide okay. Well this is just too convenient too much of a coincidence. We're going to make this happen and I'll give you just a little bit of background on him. Is He a name? That's familiar to you at all Josh. Young familiar with the name. I don't think I would have been able to identify any of his movies though right so he got his start as a camera. Operator working with Don Siegel and especially on Siegel and Clint Eastwood Films in the late. Nineteen sixty so movies like two mules for sister Sarah and Cubans Bluff and then his first role as a cinematographer. As the director of photography was Nineteen. Seventy-one it was the beguiled so that Seagal Directing Eastwood and then play misty for me followed that where he was working with eastward again but this time Eastwood as director that was his debut he died in twenty twelve and if you look at his. Imdb the early two thousands in the nineties were not good to surtees out of maybe twenty. Titles there's not one that really stands out as essential viewing and even at the end of the eighties. The decade closed for surtees with rat boy back to the beach and licensed to drive in the eighties for him was otherwise filled with a lot of eastwood's stuff prior to that so movies like Fire Fox and tight rope and sudden impact even honky. Tonk man his heyday really was the nineteen seventies which brought me to night moves. This is an Arthur Penn. Early Bleak Neo Noir starring Gene Hackman as a former football player turned disillusioned private. I would other type of private. I is there in the seventies and it's all set within the movie business so it's reflexive to in the mode of Altman's the long goodbye and then the one I most recently watched was another Eastwood blindspot. Which is Pale writer?
"honky" Discussed on TV Literate
"People's ultimate goal is to stop people from having abortion. So I was just thinking about that and I think like premarital sex to have the ghost that wanted to get an abortion or heard I wanted to get an abortion and then she died and then for have her try and kill pregnant ladies like definitely. It's definitely interesting and a little concerning that like the two big stories of this place are all like centered around someone being killed for for having premarital sex and getting pregnant like that's so yeah definitely definitely could see how that would just be like a cautionary tale for people. Yeah I mean I was just thinking about it. 'cause yesterday my dad was having me do ancestry research forum and I came across the story and he had said that his mom said that it was one of his cousins but it turned out that it was actually some family of the same name but not related to us and says like Oh you know your cousin. Brian He you know. Cross the train tracks and got hit by the train like and that was the stay off the tracks. Yeah Yeah touch it definitely at this. But Bobby Mackie's is the yet. Don't have sex until you're married. Early will be decapitated and haunt bobby. Mackey is for the rest of your life I wonder if ghost or God I hope not. Oh man also I would not want to. I would like Bobby Mackie's music world is like the last place I would want to heart. Can you imagine having to be around like drunk Kentuckians all day every day? No thank you also. It's like a Honky tonk country music bar and those are like two of my least favorite things have to listen to Bobby mackey. Sing that song. Joe Joe Joe. What music slaps harder Bobby mackey Joe Exotic Bobby mackey? Because he thinks it good point good point yeah. He didn't steal it from other musicians. Yeah he didn't just lip sync on top of a truck with police lights around him. Right right okay so to do you have anything else. You wanted to talk about Gross Adventures No Oh yes good. So there was one clip in there. I googled to see what other shows had covered bobby. Mackie's to see if there's anything else that we should watch. And so people have been talking about this haunting since nineteen ninety like they were on Jerry Springer in nineteen ninety-one onto stuff. And so that makes me even like even more reticent to believe them because like they've been working this angle for a while but for sure in the ghost hunters I looked for it and I couldn't find they were on the Geraldo Rivera show. Oh and ghost. Adventures had a clip of that. Look old time like Grainy TV. Look Oh wow and bobby mackey was on Geraldo and Holy Shit. I will have that now is going to be like. We had to watch this but nowhere pet sad but yeah I mean I definitely understand like I'm sure that this like all these spec all the speculation has been really good for business for Bobby mackey. Let people are coming. Obviously I went to a ghost tour and so people do the ghost tours. I'm sure people just go to the bar. Just like hamlet see we could see if it goes is gonNA come hit. Yeah yeah so I mean. I definitely understand why they would do that. Oh yeah that's just you know when when I want to believe that always crushes. Yeah it's it's hard yeah. It's hard being realistic. I don't know why I believe the people who are like I don't WanNa talk about it and have to be like bullied into letting people into the house and I'm like all right. I believe you the real yes exactly what I mean. It is a little sketchy when person as a little too like into promoting how Han at their places for sherm. Yeah I was just take that as more like grain of salt. It's going to be a fun. Cripe place yeah whatever but so. I thought to end things off. We should do some like showdown superlatives. All right So I thought the first one I thought that we should do is. What do you think was the most compelling episode that we watched and you can you can translate that however you want but what was the most compelling episode about Bobby Mackie's that we watched I mean? I'm probably going to do all the good things for buzzfeed unsolved but like it's so thorough there so like forthright right. I'm done to believe the MAG light flashing on and off from them than from Zapping. I definitely agree I think I might argue that. I would maybe give the most compelling episode two maybe Ghost Adventures just because it was the most bat shit crazy episode. And I think that in a lot a lot of people like really that in this type of show so I think I would maybe give most compelling to go ventures But what about the next category is what is the most believable episode Ghost Hunters Ghost Hunters. Yeah I would take. Ghost hunters was believable. Atwood say buzzfeed unsolved or both Pretty believes still think ghost hunters topped it for me because they did do the F. readings around all the exposed electrical wiring and that is true. They were very much looking to disprove versus looking for evidence. Yeah I can definitely see that. And they gave us some more of like a alternate like. This could be the problem. This could be like what's causing all the problems and none of the other ones really gave us that. So yeah I definitely agree. Yeah exactly exactly. You're GONNA haunt me. Give me an option. Yeah give yes please. Okay and the last one. I have is overall best episode. What do you think it was the best episode we watched give it to buzzfeed unsolved? I the best. I Love Ryan and Shane. They're my og wrote bromance. I just love US feed on saw because I feel again is so different from every other. Paranormal show Ila so that like even ghost hunters which I find to be more realistic than ghost adventures. I I find that there isn't as much like skepticism in that and there is a lot of skepticism and bus which I think is a good thing and as only natural to have but at the same time. It's not all like this is all bullshit like at the same time there. Is You know. Even Shane sometimes is like. Oh this creepy. Yeah a willingness to try right. Yes yes. It's the like the play in your space. Improv thing. Exactly exactly. Yeah I think yeah themselves because it very much plays to my librarian nece in so far as how well researched it is information you get like we got all the stories on the other ones but none of them were like okay. Here's the timeline of when things happened and this is contextualised and also like the buzzfeed unsolved episodes are only like twenty five minutes each so like you got all that information plus the investigation and I feel like the other. Two episodes had a lot of filler. I feel like just in general because forty five minutes is a long time to so I like I like the length of the field solves episodes as well. I think that goes in favor for sure. Yeah I agree with you. I yes I think BUZZFEED UNSOLVED. You are our winner of the first Spooky Show. Showdown congratulations buzzfeed unsolved. We are so proud of you. Hell Yeah Hell. Yeah Shane and Ryan. I know that you are the New Yorkers listening to us or maybe you live in La. I don't know where they live. Please yeah yeah yeah you know. We'll we'll talk to you. Yeah Unlike fucking Paul and Kentucky you stay town please stay in Kentucky with all of if Bobby mackey and everybody else please. We don't need your hair. What if we got Paul and Carini Mackie's Oh my God yes. Let's do it. Crossover episode did not know. We needed Elia Ninety days. Fiance haunted yes. That's that's the next probably the next series because you know they keep coming out with new ninety. I watch all of them. So I'd love a haunted won the same kind of thing to me like the sandwich at KFC with the two donuts as the bronze joking right that twenty years ago. But it's a thing now this may happen. Yeah you never know. The world is a crazy place it really is. Is there anything else that you want to talk about today? No Oh yes. Oh Yes oh announced one more follow up to tiger king yes. There's going to be one more episode. I saw that I am so excited and I think it's Kinda come out soon right. I think so. I didn't really look like a specific date but I saw that they were like shooting it now and it was going to become available like immediately whatever it was ready so. I'm excited 'cause I am just interested in what they like the information that they're gonNA give why they felt it necessary to add a new episode. Yeah Yeah I mean maybe it is only criticism about how they portrayed them as kind of stereotypes of themselves. Yes definitely I would. I'm really interested to see what they say in this episode So I think that's it for today. Yes thank you guys so much for listening. Let us know what you thought. About our first showdown we are excited to do more showdowns as well including other spooky showdowns and maybe some other type of showdown as well But yeah you can find us on the Internet We're twitter facebook patriotic and Suzette it instagram instagram which is at TV literate.

They Call Us Alan Yang
"I gotta say I mean I think all of us probably have stories that our parents have either told us reluctantly or other people told us about our parents right. Which don't jibe with what we know about them today. And then there's also the kind of moment where we either open a photo album or an old wardrobe or closer store and you just get this sudden blast like full on facial blast of nostalgia for a an era and a place in a time that never existed to you. That even seem alien to your parents today and I remember for me. Was that warder moment. Because at the back of my mom's closet were a bunch of outfits that again were very clearly from her late twenties when she first came into the United States and they were kind of swinging outfits. Like you know stuff that I'd be disturbed to to of us. Now she's GonNa I'm Gonna I'm GonNa wear these one day just going to see them or no. Actually those are dad's now I mean the classic thing on like instagram whatever's man like you know old school ghouls like your parents wearing seventies or eighties clothes or whatever. Yeah I have a few of my my parents for sure and they look cool is out. It's like young and attractive and Um wearing like belva really it was before they were accidental Chinese hipsters. They're just straight up Chinese after applying. That's the that's the real deal man though. Jesus enough you said earlier. This film is definitely not a money grab. I'm wondering if there but you did you face any kind of challenges trying to get this particular story made or are we in the time. We're like we can do it all now. You know or any roadblocks. I'm the luckiest guy in the world. So just a little bit of context when I started writing his movie and and even when I completed the first draft of the script. Keep IN MIND. This is before crazy revisions before the farewell. It's before you know. Bonds eun-ha when a million Oscars They're still having been Asian. He's made a long time when I wrote this. So it was kind of a crazy leap of faith. Writing script with adjusting exclusively Asian American and Asian cast in so Yeah I don't think it was a great climate to sell that script in but I very fortunately had a relationship with net flicks and and new tents around us a little bit who we sold master of none two years and years ago and so I was extremely lucky. I had drafted the script sense. Detained and He loved it and wanted to make. And so we made the movie. And I'll tell you that is not typical of the experience in entertainment. You don't usually get a movie script. May I usually take years and years and years so I feel really fortunate in that respect and then in the interim between when I sold it when we shot it and when it came out you know we had this little resurgence of Asian Feller? Not even research. It's just a surgeons because it does but yeah and I feel really lucky because I feel like you know. I think the public is shown to be receptive of movies with Asian faces in them and even reading subtitles as parasite show it so Yeah I feel like culture came around and in the process of making this movie in that time period. I hope people are ready to to to be receptive to this movie. Can we talk a little bit about the the cast because obviously one of the things that really has distinguished? I think all of your All works you've done has been a really deep and interesting collaboration with the actual actors either putting people on screen. Who Sort of serve as Your Avatar? I think in the past you've talked about and we've we've had Kelvin you on the show How you sort of served as your onscreen standing but the performances are a lot of really brings us. The stories are telling to particular kind of nuanced life. And I. I'm curious how you decided to cast this. And to what degree do try to seek out people who mapped out to the real world counterparts. Like is time of very much like your dad. Is I guess Angela. Yea essentially you know. I tried to hugh close to the characters and of course there's some overlap between the characters and the real people but you know. There's there's some diversions too. So you know what's funny is tie in person is is is not that much like characters very social in very talkative. And he's from New York and you know it's it's like He he's very different from the character but he's an incredibly skilled actor and he's able to portray that really well he's really reserved and and sort of a quiet and he does so much with so little in the film you know he he just by little word wise workout wise. You know it's a it's a quiet performance but it's incredibly powerful and moving in. That's because of the subtleties of exacting. And that's you can see the years of experience and you can see also that he has a hint of life in his eyes in that sort of a spirit behind there because that is embodied in the past by Honky Lee who who is a demanded to be incredibly charismatic. I mean the point of the movie. Is you see the change in this man from from his youth to to his the older period in his life. And so Yeah I mean Angela loosely based on my sister although it's very different because she's happily married and that's a totally different in the movie But it really was really just working with each individual actor in figuring out what they would bring to the role and I I do try to occasionally Taylor the part to the accuracy you cast and then you rewrite the rewrite. Some of that happens as well You know of in particular. The Taiwanese actors. It's very sort of a very very different casting process there. Were you know I flew to Taiwan and met with the actors? It isn't just a you know. A sort of a A videotape process like I went in there met with them and interact with them and and red lines with them and I did that with each and every person that cast. So I'm it's very personal personal
