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.

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.

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..

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.

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.

"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.

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.

"Off. He was pretty critical of dust here in eighty nine. And said that he was well lazy and he even used some harsher words than that. And this is around the same time that dusty was. Trying to get out of Dodge I. Think can head back to WCW. that a fair criticism of dusty working eighty nine what's the? Yeah I think. So I think dream was kind of going through the motions at that time. And I don't dusty wanted to work. Anymore that level. if he did, he wanted to be on top so. Yeah. Sometimes does does he could be a little lazy dusty wanted to do with dusty wanted to do. And to go out and beyond that sometimes. You'd have to push stream a little bit. Talk Man.

You guys had a great relationship with our Senio lots stars were there was a big part of my childhood Hulk Hogan Macho. Man Ultimate Warrior on on. But honky Tonk man here with Jimmy Hart. This is kind of cool deal for our Senio. What are you remember about him being on that show? Here's thing about Arsenio Hall are sending it was a huge fan. So Arsenio wanted to have guys on that. He enjoyed and Honkytonk man will somebody that Arsenio Hall genuinely enjoy is a fan watching him. So when you have that somebody that's willing to work with you. That's good. Shit honkytonk man was type character. That you can have fun with in hockey. Did Mind having fun with it? Great stuff one day at the arena. Hockey says he pitches losing to Jimmy Snuka to help get them over and Vince had really with intrigue tone. In hockey thought he was done and GonNa be jobbed out so. He pits this idea to work his way back up to. Make better money while still keeping a job and he said he really enjoyed those matches too because he snuck a work their way up from a pre limb position to higher spot paid more. In. Snuck even got a win over at Madison Square Garden at the end of September. and He defeated him by the Hugh on superstars on taping on Halloween. This avails like. A guy trying to make sure he can. Submit his long-term ruin and. Maybe back off of the stance that we've heard. He took before that I think maybe you still question a little bit. Well look I'm not questioning I'm telling you that as far as my dealings. With Wayne Ferris through the years. Haven't had a problem with the Guy Right. Straight Up, you knew where you stood. In, for me always did what he was asked to do and was of. A, good straight up guy. I think that hockey is. One of the most misunderstood. People in in the business and maybe he earns his reputation maybe he has earned his reputation difficult to deal with he didn't earn it with me. So I can only speak to how he was with me when I was around him, can you talk to us about his feud with superfly here? Jimmy coming back in. Jimmy. Needed somebody to work with that meant something. But it was also somebody that could. Get the most out of Jimmy and find out what Jimmy had left in the tank. So honky in an established, he'll was perfect for the baby face SNUKA and. It worked I. Think we did the angle on the brother love show with guitar. Snooker. Called Jimmy a savage or something, and then Hockey came from behind. Maybe I'm just in my head. You're making it up like you said, you didn't do. Maybe I did yeah. I didn't do shit. You're right no no no. He.

"No events was fine with it as he left the belt on him, it's not a big deal. The feud is blown off a few weeks before wrestlemainia four and at Wrestlemania for his next feud begins in of course, it's with. Bruce the fucking Barbara. Take. beefcake gets them a sleeper when colonel. Jimmy Hart causes the addict to save the title. The few continues until summer slammed, which was supposed to be beefcakes lash out of the title, and then a twist happens the late outlaw Ron Bass attack beefcake with one of his Spurs on TV causing a bloody scene that was censored by a big x and the replays and I gotTa. Tell you man as a kid. I was fascinated by this big x and wanted to see what was happening around it and I could pause the VCR enough I could see. Pretty ingenious stuff to do here in one thousand nine, hundred, Eighty, eight. What are you remember about this angle? Oh, I, loved it in the big X was we make sure the experts position in the way that is a camera move you got to see. Little Bit. Oh my God curbs said mask. And you just can't see bits and pieces enough to really be scared. Inches. Appalled that but. The same time it was so terrible we had to exit out. It's kind of like the the bar across the boobs in the old Newspaper newspaper print magazines. For one year two months and twenty seven days. The honky Tonk man was here continental champion. Their champion of all time maybe and they said it often enough that people believed it and with beefcake out of action on key has no idea who his opponent is going to be at Summer Slam nineteen, eighty eight, it's a mystery. And honky we man comes out doesn't Promo Madison Square Garden sold out huge pay per view. and. He says, it doesn't matter who it is just send somebody out and I'm going to beat them. And of course, Jim Johnston's famed. Warrior Music Hits, and honky loses in a super squash to the ultimate warrior who was going absolutely nuts along with the crowd I mean a gigantic crowd. The fans were really with where you're here. And he would even tell our friends John Oliver over cafe commentaries. It was a good payday. And he says, the payday was more than he expected. But wrestlemainia three was less than expected. He is GonNa wind up doing a handful of return mashes with warrior? And he said he was happy enough with those matches. Felt like he compost all the good. Any had some creative input. He says, I accomplished what needed to be accomplished I. got him over right away. He was an automatic store a star right away. It was good for the company because they needed someone fast to get over. Told Sean Oliver. It didn't hurt me to lose to the warrior. I gotTa tell you. I'm pretty surprised by this comments. I would think that anybody especially Honky tonk man is he's been over the years. When you talk about him losing so quickly. And allegedly being the same guy who a few months before didn't WanNa. Lose now doing so so willingly and so quickly. That's a little hard process. Well. Again it kind of goes back to what I said. And your word allegedly, right so I think rumor Innuendo and folklore in reality. Two different things. And honky didn't have problem and I think it was. The right thing to do for warrior obviously hockey grease that and it was right thing to do for business and it was good. But also tell you the the hockey didn't let him press line again after that and. Not Great or at least he didn't grabbed nuts. That's for Damn. Sure. Only did that one time? Here's the thing. I, want to believe you. I WanNa believe that Honky. Didn't try to protest losing the. Belt savage. I want to believe that. No, he is the guy that just willingly knowingly it was like, yeah I'll lose to wear a couple seconds. No big deal. But we know that. Eric. Bischoff says when he was TV champ. He refused to drop the bill tomorrow. Just I don't know I I tend to believe that hockey's the type of guy who would draw a line in the sand for the sake of business and his own livelihood and Sort of save his own neck. You disagree. Yeah. We had different experiences maybe I handled Honky tonk man differently than Eric Good. Handle on. Narco I. Don't know I'm sure you paid them more for.

"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.

A thousand miles away. By saying that, we've got the NFL Sunday ticket and we even serve beer in cans because you can't have. Glass on the beach baby and. 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. That's still get the beans, tatum haters Franks or beans and Franks, but he's I can beans, but I don't get the beans and Taylor Jimmy. Hart is is a lot like Tony Shabani.

One, thousand, nine, hundred, eight Dave meltzer wrote than he loved the Honky tonk man Peggy Sue Douro. And in in the interviews hockey town ran would, of course, put over working with Jimmy Hart that's back in the day but also to these days and shoot interviews and he says he has a lot of his success that Jimmy Hart for Pushing Him in Times that hockey would want to slow down he says Jimmy was always pushing him to do more. and. 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. And you talk about the snake pit from February twenty, first nineteen, Eighty, seven right before you come in is the most remembered moment of the rivalry and happens when Jake says hockey nearly killed him. 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.

Bobby Mackey's Music World
"Wilder Kentucky is a town of about three thousand people along the state's northern border. It's small very small, less than four square miles much of it is wooded. One might not expect at town of this size to have a nightclub, but it does. In, one thousand nine, hundred, seventy, eight, former farm and railroad worker named. Bobby mackey open to Honky Tonk bar off Kentucky route nine, the building it shows had a long history before mackey took ownership of it. Local legends says that in the past it was both a speakeasy and to slaughterhouse on top of being a hotbed for. Satanism. Today, it's rumored to play host to kind of spirits from full body apparitions, demonic portal's. Bobby. Mackie's checkered past and spectral present have the title of the. 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. Sharon paused and yelled at this area was off limits. The woman held Sharon's is and mauled two words. L. ME. Suddenly she sprinted down the stairs Sharon brace tourself expecting to be bowled over. 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. The manse bat on the floor told her he was there to help her. Take care of things.

Here's What We're Watching During Quarantine
"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 tonk" 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.

"In call down to the honky tonk hated you know Jake is going to be in a movie it's called the friend and it stars Casey Affleck Dakota Johnson and Jason Segal the last time but we talk to Jake they spoke about what it was like for him to act what you're no you're really supposed to know the script to know your parts and everything in case people that are there that are you know there is are relying it's like being it's like doing what we do on the road you know like I'm expecting that my birthday at that my bass player knows on this next song what notes to play because I'm not playing that's his job a plan and so that's kind of the way I felt they're like well here's his my part you know it's my part to do something and if I don't and I there was a couple times like I didn't do it right and we have to start over and yeah I know the guy shouldn't be here the but I'll get dog called the about that like the like everyone of them was so nice and so they're they're just they were really really helpful and accommodating and it I really like not saying this to tell myself or anything but the this movie is going to be amazing it really is it's a it's a true story get we tell them that the it's based upon so there's an article you can check it out read it really let you know more about what is news about it was published in esquire magazine by the husband his name is Matthew Teague and he wrote it about his wife and and it's in the in the article esquire was called the friend and this these producers and directors got hold of this and that and they're right what a beautiful story and and then they put all these characters together and actors and somehow or another I became part of it but try to cry yeah Amy when you asked me that I was like yeah you're definitely walking on like I know we need those but you need that yeah that's what I've learned with this movie is it there's lots of things about it and I'm like man that's really that could that that is touching her too deep but you need to feel that and you need the laughs in it and you need you need everything that this movie is is that's what that's the best way I can explain twenty five years Miranda Lambert with it all comes out in the one do a craft the jeans by a change in the the brand name yeah that the copy machine the all the way we almost made it from Maranda Lambert it.

"So to have such not even one fifth of the songs that were hearing on the radio be by women. That's a major problem, especially you have acts like Carrie Underwood maranda Lambert, Casey, muss graves things. Like that. And not only are there. Still few women represented on these lists. But the average age of women in country music is twenty nine years old the average age of men in country music, forty two years old. So basically once women hit thirty they disappear from country music radio, which is is just a shame in. And it's also deliberate. The men who run the country music stations. The DJ's do not play women on the air. And if they if you don't hear the women on air, you're not going to go out and buy their albums. So as a major problem that's happening right now. And once you dovetail that with little NAS ex and his song old town road little X rapper who recently released a country music song, and it was shooting up the country music charts billboard took it off of the charts. Because they said it did not have enough country music elements, and they would not explain what country music elements were missing from the song. I mean, it had a guitar talking about Horth and join it was just too. Yeah. As a banjo. I mean, it is it sounds like a country music song. And maybe we can play a little clip of it. Yes. And then what little not ex- did was go out and ask Billy Ray Cyrus to join him on the remix. And once again, it is it shot up to number one..

"So it's interesting that you kind of said like because there are so few women of color like it makes you not want to have an nemesis. But I have found it very helpful for me to peg white men as my nemeses. In fact, I think I've said this before on this podcast in in every job. I've had I've sort of made believe that I've had a nemesis like someone who I don't wish ill on. I don't hope they do a bad job. But like, maybe I think they got a little too, much leeway or a little credit for their work. That's not entirely deserved. And so whenever I go into advocate for myself or whenever I'm feeling bad about myself. I'm like what would that person? Do you know how would that person? Ask for a raise would that person. Apologize for missing such and such a deadline, and I've found it, very helpful. Especially the like, you know, go into whatever situation with the confidence of a mediocre white man not saying that any of my colleagues have ever been mediocre, but. Putting myself in someone else's shoes or like using their accomplishments to push me to accomplish more has been helpful for me. Yeah. I think I think people are just latching onto Roxanne's nece- is train thought train because you know, we don't we're supposed to be passed that at the point, you know, in our lives, if we're a little older where, you know, pass our twenties, or whatever we're not supposed to be thinking about other people are supposed to be focused on our own goals. And I mean, I believe that. Healthy competition is fine. You know, people will motivate you to push towards your goal. I just don't think that I have anybody. I care enough about to consider them an emphasis like I feel like the people that that I do have contempt for because maybe they I don't know they just seem to keep failing upward. I don't necessarily want. What they have. And I don't want to prevent them from moving forward. I'm just kind of like, I just need to get mine. Let me just focus on myself. Let me do my own thing. And I'll deal with it. I also just don't want to be able to trace any level of my success back to people that I can't stand like, I do not want to be able to say or to even think I've achieved this goal out of pettiness or out of spite, you know, like I want to have accomplished something because that's what I said out to accomplish. And that I'm good. Whatever. And the, you know, this is something that I enjoy doing and not just because I saw her over there getting this deal book deals on. Now, I've gotta get a book deal to know. I mean, I think it's I think part of it is deeply playful, and I think though, it becomes this like proxy for sorting out other business that I don't think Roxanne Gay's actually talking about. So it's interesting. So I think because she's such a, you know, taste maker and such a a cultural figure among certain group of people. I think some she'll do something. And then people take it in these directions and a tribute to her and it gets a little like weird and layered. But I do what you mean. I think there's sometimes like a lot of projecting especially on women on Twitter where it's like, it becomes a thing where it's like, how dare you rock San gays you have a nemesis. And I think he's so deeply on bothered by the few back clearly, and so I think I think what it does. It helps helps us kind of. Untangle are weird ambition stuff and are weird public ambition stuff because I think one of the ways that women grapple with ambition in my experience and include myself in it is that you're always afraid that people think you're up to something, but you are up to something because you're trying to take care of yourself and you're trying to succeed..

Yocum if he got him, and we do Jerry Jeff Walker with you on a Tuesday night, October twenty third twenty eighteen exactly two weeks away from election day in the mid terms more on that as we continue on the subject of the caravan before we get going, by the way, phone lines open too. If you'd like to hear some more famous people born in Kentucky, we could probably arrange that for a five one three seven four nine seven thousand one eight hundred eight four three two four four one first thing for my lovely wife. Christa two point. Oh. She'd text me, and I'm watching the news now keep in mind. This is a college educated. A college educated suburban woman of a certain age. Now, the senior citizen. And I have no influence enter politics whatsoever. If you've listened to me, I know you'd find that hard to believe, but I just you know, we talk truth to each other without any agendas and more of the not come up with same conclusion. She'd text me earlier tonight said talking about the caravan so-called, it's still making its way through Mexico. To what end no one knows. She writes, if you're so proud of your blank whole country that you have to carry your flag on this caravan, then blanking stay there. If you're so proud of Honduras, you're so proud of Guatemala, so proud of El Salvador. You know, either. Leave your flag at home or stay put in your country fight for your own damn country. That's what we're trying to do. Now. Isn't it fight for our country the sovereignty of our country the safety of our country. Protection of of jobs, all of that stuff. That came from my wife, again, a college educated suburban woman, which apparently they don't vote for Trump or they won't vote for any any Trump candidates or any Republicans? That's a lie. It's another fake news agenda. And Jim from Clifton has a caravan combat. You got to comment on you got to comment on the mob of illegals that are trying to storm. Our country's borders. Jim. I do. I don't know. How illegal they are. I mean, I know they're flying Honduran flag, and that's not a cool thing. But my question is why can't we just let the move to Utah. Decevante Orlando out there. Just settle move there. Well, I think the people of Utah would have some say in that, Jim. Why are you just randomly picking Utah? Because there's whole hotter land it. I mean, there's an expansive amount of land in Montana to. But there are too many liberals who are for open borders that wouldn't want them living in Montana, believe me or Idaho for that. Okay. But really noticing Gary Jeff seriously, really, I don't think I mean, not burn invasions of our country. But I'm picking some of these people, you know, to settle move to like you said, Montana or something. I mean, come by harmony really gonna do we can build like. I don't know big labor camps for sure they have some skills rights. Can't they do something? Low skill low wage jobs are going away. Just in case you have noticed. We we've got good paying jobs for people with skills and education, and these people have neither one all right? Listen, I'm gonna why would why would why would we want? Why would we want a whole whole generations of people with no education, no skills, who only squadron district here, we they have. I'm sure that. I'm sure that happened. Those people have some skills listening has one million jobs available in our state, right? Yeah. They're begging people jobs. These people are not qualified to to hold those jobs below educate people to work. So how much money are you going to pay for another nation's residents to come into the United States by win that big giant Powerball? Maybe Jim I I would I would hold you to that. Jim if if you would win the big giant Powerball, and you would pay way for like a thousand two thousand of the illegals that are fast approaching every border. I would give you an award. You would be man of the year. Jim. I can't wait until the numbers come in. I hope your numbers come in. And you can you can host them all at your mansion have a good evening. Sound guy? Chad. Chad what's going on what's up, man? How you doing? How's how's our friend? Megan. Well, I guess she's hanging in there. I haven't spoken to her in about a week and a half.
