What We're Watching: The Voice Finale and Baby Ballroom

"Hello and welcome to round to the parenting roundabout podcast. I'm terry moro. And i'm here with catherine echo. Hello usually on this podcast. We talk about parenting issues. But once a week catherine i liked to get together to discuss tv movies books and other entertainment topics. Because it's nice to talk about something other than parenting for a change this week. We are wrapping up our two. Most recent reality show watches be ballroom season two and the voice which wrapped. I don't even know well. They wrapped up their latest season. With a whopping five hours of the top five and many many other people. We talked last week about the to our top five sing for their lives. That was on monday. And then our podcast dropped on tuesday morning tuesday evening. We were to find out who actually won now since the voice has been having Results shows from eight to nine on tuesdays. I settle in front of my tv at eight o'clock and notice that they were just retreading the stuff from the night before playing it again and i thought well i guess i guess it's nice to give those performances and other shot and then they were replaying the judge's comments and i'm like i didn't even want those the first time i got again twice and it kept going carson. Daley kept saying something about. We're finally going to go live. And they thought we'll maybe half the show will be live in. The five is the last five minutes and i'm like when we going to find out who won this thing and then since i've been watching it on the dvr. Just stopped. and. I thought i watched all of this and now i'm not going to know my husband comes in and says oh well that was just the first hour. There's two more hours taped. oh okay. so who's eighty three hour palooza with all the padding you could possibly desire. I mean more faffing about than we have ever again because they had. I don't know eight different performances from other people completely not part of the show. The the finalists do a duet with their coach. Which most of those were pretty nice. Those were nice in that in a good use of the time right but then they had just. oh now. We're going to hear from dan shea. Oh now nelly are for nelly is coming on I was happy to see. No isn't happy to see nelly but everybody else lake come on down and shea just fine but they looked they look dorky out on that like fake main street seconds. It was like a veritable. Macy's thanksgiving day parade of popular people. You recognize lip synching. It was just possibly not necessary. Possibly definitely not necessary. And you know like we could wrap with some twenty nine people. Pink was performing as like a hologram. Sh with i already forgot who he even keith. Irvine thurman sorry keith. Urban and knows where he was. Were any of those people. Actually in the same place as the judges are was all from rotely. It was very hard to tell it. Looked i mean they all seem to be on that weird fake cetin they some yeah appear to be on a stage but i you know. I think probably keith. Urban and nelly have access to their own flashing lights stage. If they wish they'd have to come to los angeles or wherever it is the super hygienic. Set buried deep in the mountains someplace. Yeah oh very fathy. I will allow all of the singing. that's fine. there's not enough singing singing good. Let's have more singing. What i could have done without is all the heartfelt talking. I think we need to be specific. The voice replies to singing waste not talking voice. This show would be one hundred percent better with no talking. You know you can applaud. You could thumbs up you can cry. You can smile. We don't need to have yet another round of. What would you like to save your coach. What would you like to say to your different from what you said last week and the week before and the week before that. It's asking a lot for people to think of that. Many platitudes i just. We don't need to hear it. They don't need to say it. It's it's a lot of pressure. Just sing dedicate your song to your coach and sing. Don't serve a fifteen year old. Have a romantic duet with his fifty year old. Like yes yes even if you say sitting across yeah and what that then there was there were skits which had severely diminishing returns and there was some little conceit of the coaches and finalists before they sandwich singing. Good pretending to decorate a fake plastic christmas tree shape really boy and now this is what happens when you give people three hours of network time to fill and also so the the five hours that you mentioned were the performances. Endless stretched out finales says the next day they replayed their voice holiday special that had already aired like two weeks before so that actually brought it up to. I believe six hours. Only you really have nothing else to put on the air being. I'm ready for the next season of the voice to start on monday there. Just like only we've got all these cova tests slobs we're going to keep us using oh man and then eventually inexorably we get to the results. Which as is so common with these shows they save for leg. You know when time is running out gus. Although they still did manage to milk a little bit by this is the one thing that's good about dancing with the stars. Running out of time is that they don't do the and you know of all the winners you are the lowest about the judge named the winner and everybody then later on gets to figure out where they placed amongst the remaining. They did the fifth place. Walk off the stage fourth place. Now you go until they got down to two and then they named the winner. Who was the kid. Eighteen year old was adorable and sang very nicely. And i feel bad. Not being overjoyed that he won you. He's a exciting. But if i were one of the four older people who have been scrapping to make a career in music for all of my life. And then i lose to a fifteen year old. I think i'm just gonna you. I hope they had a sterile room for them to go in and get drunk afterwards because yeah that was harsh and you know just the way that they place them five. Four three was a real. Bummer yes like it was y- you know you've you've stretched out the suspense for two hours. Already or three count the recap thing like we don't need to stretch it out even further by bringing it from five to. Yeah not just is a bummer. For the people who are who will out. I yeah and for their fans. Yeah which we are. Because john day our pick loss wanted to go and now is pretty sure he's gonna win so scott was disappointing and really i think possibly with maybe one exception at just flip those results. That's about where. I was thinking but Oh well i think they all get to have their singles released and they all get a boost from that and there's plenty of people having a successful career in music who were second third fourth fifth on a show like this so yeah i and i think it was on. Go fug yourself that they pointed out you know if you're the winner you're locked into whatever contracting true recording contract and if you're not the winner then you've still got the exposure but you may have more rights ability in what you get out of it. Yeah yeah we'll try that way. I will be checking my country radio. Liz son apple music for jimmy to show up because they just seem right across the lake country voices to me. Everybody was like. I've never heard anybody like you'll before you know. Let us the apple country music list but that means that they should if they have some songwriting chops or some good taste picking songs they could turn up taken your them. They can call that. Jean jacket guy. Yeah see what he asked for them home or maybe not jim is life. I need a song. I can sing on a big rock. Yeah what a good. When i was on the big rock. Make sure it's appropriate for a big giant moon raw. Well i had never watched the voice before. I think the way we did it which is to come in late. Once they were already wittling people down is the way to do it. Yeah i don't think. I would want it to go through a whole bunch of auditions. 'cause the coaches have a really really cute stick but you only yeah it has. It has a shelf life. And i don't think i would have wanted another. I think i had just enough of it. Wouldn't really want another five or ten weeks or however long this thing went right you know i felt like i just had just. The right amount was fun and it was mostly enjoyable. Yeah and you can't blame. Nbc for milking it as much as you may want to. It's hard to produce things right now. Yeah so speaking of saying goodbye. Oh we also came to the end of the second season of baby ballroom which i am. Sad to learn is the last existing seat season of baby ballroom whether there will be more. I do not know. Probably not trying to but i for some reason thought there was a third season and so was wondering what these tiny little dancers would be up to in another year but we shall not know unless we go on instagram and look them up and see how much they have grown up and how much make emily now wears. Oh my goodness honey honey. She had an instagram post asking for sponsorship for lashes no twelve year old. shut us sponsor for lashes. I want petition. It should be banned. Watch the last three episodes just to finish it up and He no maxwell and livy up stand together and tall girls short boy. They're still together Jamie and parents nearly stillie. So tiny. I mean they shoulder next to like. She's like their size. Yes yes that's what i think in coulda what's i still say what happened to sub for apartments like a one hit wonder he was only on for one time but yes she is quite tiny and i don't think that she's going to grow. To the extent that would be necessary. So those those will they stay together dramas kempton nothing and then out of the blow out of nowhere. Just like jamie and mia suddenly maximum libya no more. They did at least do some very unconvincing interviews with them where they were just you know max said she broke it up and she said i don't even know what she said but something very coached and then the parents were like max max's. Parents were extremely diplomatic and tellingly. They were the. They were the only parents that disgusted. The the i think olivia's parents also said. Oh you're right. you're i thought. They said she wasn't being pushed off or something like that. Yeah but you know. It's one of those things where you know. There's more of a story. Oh yeah there's more to this and gosh documentary. Un's you'd think you might wanna dig into it but no so. I had kind of been spoiled for a little bit. Because i looked up. Olivia discovers instagram page. And she's had at least one and possibly two partner since then i think just one I think there was one for a short while. And then there was maxim now certainly guy's name with xs in their name are important for her but She's i think she's still dancing and good for her hair's very long and she is very adorable but not quite as cute as she was when she was a little pixie. Yes but i think. I think if we need a theory as to what could possibly have broken max livia up at a time when they were talking about. We wanna win all the things we want to go to all the contests and when all the things. I think we can pin it on max hair. Don't you yeah like. I think she said okay. Polio's what is going. Your hair was always weird. But now it's taken on a new dimension. And i just can't i can't i can't i can't agree we ask. You made the right choice. I don't know if the timing was this way in real life but show They showed them breaking up right before. Blackpool like this. Yeah competition right. I don't understand why they wouldn't have just done that. One more right. Yeah they were talking about how much they wanted to win it and then they just decided not to do it at all. Also it was like it was like a divorce where you can no longer see your mutual friends anymore. They they were gone from the show. That was it. Didn't go back to zigzag. Apparently neither one of them. They didn't go to the big holiday party. They were just and we never saw him so that was kind of sad. Because i enjoyed them. Yeah i also have to once again. Protest it's too late because they're not making these anymore. But i do not approve of storylines in which you see jack floating around in the background. But we're supposed to forget. We know him and root for other people. This is not right. they're making a big thing. It's arjun and it's our law. Which ones will win and like jackass is right there. What is doing however when arjun did win. Yarden izzy did win. Jack was thrilled. Like an emily up and down and it was super cute. Now door was in the background. It was very sweet. Yes i would have liked to been in the foreground because it was adorable that yes we catch glimpses and yes. Emily and jaguar both thrilled for them. And it was so fun. And easy as delightful. She is she's her reaction so cute and and arjun is just adorable in a very good dancer and if they lose him to cricket it will be a sad thing they really. They really made that a major platform shoes for dress up day at school dancing or curriculum out busy. They're taking they're talking. What if you choose something else. That's it we're dancing. It's like it's jus- career day at the school right as not like they're shipping them off to cricket school after this season like i mean no one's asked will. This is a whatever lifelong commitment right. Now whatever costume you pick this day man that's it for the rest of your life So pick carefully. I gotta think the mothers looking at them in the cricket going. Do you know how much money. I'm spending on downs lessons. She seems she seems cool. She seems to enjoy it so And when they had a christmas party that the last episode once again with a party with beefcake guys from the gym although this time they didn't get much mentioned that were kind of their yes And there was some hold trumped up competition which is just seemed to be an excuse to put people in stupid costumes. Well as we know. Warren is the most extra of yes. I knew i need snow machine. I need live reindeer. Chinese people dressed up like christmas crackers. I particularly in that last episode just sort of fell a little bit for or who would always seemed sort of icy to me before and just the the one girls dance partner and not romantic interest. I think but he in this episode. He kind of had a son-in-law vibe. You know definitely your father-in-law is just. He's just extra and you just gotta roll with it and he's just sort of like you know he's got his baseball cap and his stubble so it's sort of hard to recognize that he was the same guy from the dance floor but he was just. Okay we're moving the tables and engine. Carol who is the partner of the other. Dancing triplet was there. Also kinda shrug in. It's like he. What are you going to do. And then The triple who's been abused throughout the non dancing triplet actually wanted to do a dance for her dad which was very sweet and leads me to believe that all the awkwardness is trumped up. Yeah because i noticed that her sister one of the sisters went and south dad and looked really happy that she was doing it and so they did. The dads and an ocean of savannah was dancing with her boyfriend who is also an audit the answer. They did a little cute excerpt on a amount of them. Getting ready to do it and four was saying look at that guy. He can't dance to save his life but he's out there doing it and i thought there is such fellow feeling amongst these three dudes to be in this very weird family. I wanna sitcom with three of the the three of them. That could be the next extension. You know you're living with your dance partners family and you have to put off all with all of this stuff even though you're not really related but you're just as is just the way it is you just gotta do this stuff and then the third guy is not a dancer at all. 'cause he's the boyfriend of the sister is not a dancer all but he still has to deal with this family stuff. I think it could be delightful. I love it. I wanna see it. Yeah the moment i saw. They were watching the fireworks. And i think jack was on. His dad's shoulders and emily was on his shoulders and i thought for. You are a softy. All along new three sizes. That is the most adorable thing i've ever seen. So so make it so net flicks find those guys are out there still dancing with those those triplets but I think. I think you got something. There made me happy. I love it well. Goodbye baby boomers. We will look you up at our own risk on instagram on instagram. Both the is on instagram. And it's every bit as traumatic as you might expect. Yes they did not. They did not go backwards on the makeup thing. They went full speed ahead. But nia and andre are still together. That's nia and andre appear to be still together. And i think the as dance partners. Yes i look at the pictures of the madonna dance partners and she looks about thirty and he still looks like a kid to me and i went to look at their instagram pages and her instagram pages. All of her looking all all made up and and weird and his his instagram is private. So like this is exactly this is a perfect illustration of the fact that maturity and fame. Wise they are in two different worlds though they dance together right andrei keep it private man. I support you adorable anyway. Good luck to the mall especially jack well so now that we are bereft of our to reality show watches and things that we may want to watch again are have not started yet and we're just not holiday.

12 - Ride it like an Equestrian

"Call him. Daddy. Do I call her daddy hall her daddy? Daddy, gang. Another episode of call her daddy presented by barstool, sports or it. So before we get into a recap of our thanksgiving Sophia. And I want to talk to you guys about something that we both have started recently using I think so feel you really turned it on to me more. Yup. My natural CBD oil. I've been starting to use his recently you guys and it has been like a game changer for me to be completely transparent. I suffer from really bad executives, and I've been using this. And it's really really helped what is CBD oil. It's a natural remedy, and you can use it for so many different things chronic pain, arthritis stress exiled, like I said PTSD excetera is pretty amazing. I I always see Sophia walking out of her room for two goes to bed and she's like lube oil. Right. I think also another great point dimension is that it is legal in all fifty states. My natural CBD. It's non GMO formula. It's one hundred percent natural with no synthetic chemicals or stimulants and the best part about my natural CV products is they're grown in process right here in the US vape e o on Mary. Daddy, gang the oil. It's discreet, it's easy to use. I mean, and I have been adding it literally to everything I put it in every meal. We'll put it in our smoothies or coffee. You can really put it anywhere. I mean at this, Alex, I'm this CD oil to my goddamn voodoo clan. Oh, I loved creativity. You guys my natural TVD is offering a ten percent off discount for barstool sports with a code sports. I repeat code sports. So go to my natural CD dot com. Get your first bottle, and let's CB d it up together. Let's get CBD people sound sexual all right? Wow. While. I'm fat. It's hell still floated nauseous in wanna die. Everyone's out work right now going to work coming home from work, and we're all miserable break is over. I hope everyone sayings giving were bomb. I'm ready for Christmas break like I or a sugar. Daddy, I just can't either or how was your break. So that was the longest we've been apart for while. I miss you so much. We got our FaceTime in. We did to those req-. Alexander will put FaceTime on in fall asleep. Not say. AM art. Okay. Okay. Were kidding me? Anyway. So yeah. So my thanksgiving was pretty good 'cause I got to be with my immediate family. I mean, obviously over thanksgiving shit was fucking weird. Like, my Dada. I think is trying to embrace the podcast. I wish he would kind of just not talk about it. But instead this thanksgiving break, he and my brother would make little jokes race sexual jokes about my podcast, and like us my lines. And I'm like, dad dad, please fucking dull put me through this. Me talk about the Gluck Gluck. No. But my brother said something about the Kuch cobbler. And then like, I just I can't that's not hear your relatives. Your blood talking about that shit as far as you're concerned. But that's not my job. It's kind of amazing. That's cool though. They're supportive. Yeah. Meanwhile, I'm in Mormon Ville view Taw, tell me fucking bum fucked Timbuktu, Utah love it. And I you're just with your immediate family. That's a blessing. I was with like my extended family, and there were definitely a few aunts and uncles that did not say Hello to me. But Ewings hitting. Did anyone call you out? And be like what the hell? No. Well, my grandma she was like a little bit concerned, but we're brought her down a planet earth than assured her that you will not be doing porn like your MAMBO, you're going. Yeah. No. I think a lot of people like we always say people are so fascinated by our family life. They're like what do your? Parents of the podcast telling people, but I don't think we've ever really explained it. I'll just reiterate again, I guess my family is really supportive. I think I know it's easier for me than so FIA. I've my dad is in the entertainment industry. He's a television producer. So he gets it. I've been doing this my whole life you on the other end. This is all new to you. The nine eleven make corporate job, right? If you months ago, so they're like, so this kind of does look like. Well, have you completely lost your like I did a complete one eighty with? And I wouldn't take it back for anything of not. So over thanksgiving break like we talked about I think our last episode. It was Wednesday. And it was the night everyone's going out to get fucked up. And so I also went out over the weekend with my brother in MRs friends, and it would guys. Okay. We have talked very very briefly about what guys should wear what guy shouldn't wear when I tell you. I went home. And so I literally Texas ofa and said we are fucking talking about this on the podcast because like literally they're wearing khakis and polos to the bar. And I'm like, this is exactly why people need call her some of the stuff that I saw guys wearing when I went back home. I was mortified terrified. I was like how the hell do you think? It's okay to wear a fucking polo desert with jeans that fit you discuss. Thing. There is. Okay. Flood genes are horrible. Okay. I don't. Yeah. And when you said the poll, I don't care how big your, arm muscles. Are. I don't wanna see how tight Apollo can suction Cup your bicep. I don't give a fuck. I don't want you wearing a polo. So if you guys follow us on Instagram a couple of weeks ago so few and I basically offered on our story. We said guys comment on our post hashtag daddy gang. And we will go to each of your pages, and we will heart any picture that we think you should delete. Right. And you guys Alex laid in my bed four hours, and we went to know exaggeration, Nogues Adron, hundreds of your files, and they just kept coming in and coming in and it was getting into the thousands. And we were like holy. There's just no way that we can get all these people. So what we decided is we're gonna make a post, and we're gonna put a few different outfits on this post of what is hot for men to wear your. I think. We should pick like five to ten basically like go to outfits, and I also wanna clarify like guys we understand just like girls guys all have different styles guys in the south. We get it. You are naturally preppy. That's how you're raised. We have the Cowboys boys. We have the northeast boys. We get it. However throughout all of those looks there should be a very specific trend that runs throughout. And there are also knows that run throughout so Sophy, and I will post about five ten pictures of outfits that are call her Dadi approve. Yes, I think I'll be great. I do though. However like since we're talking about it. There are few Staples that I think are so hot that. I see some guys where okay, I think it's so sexy when a guy wears a light wash Jean jacket. Yes. Get so hot or when they have like the sherpa on the caller Jean jacket. Can I also clarify though that I hate when guys where Jean jackets if it looks so fucking cheese. There are guys that have on Jean jackets that looked like it's from fucking lands end. Don't let me know at your Mamba 'cause you're from Utah people in the east coast note. The fuck lands end is and you should not be caught dead. If you're over the age of ten wearing lands and also that goes the same for the leather jacket guys. Look so hot and leather DACA, and like a big black scarf tucked in a leather jacket or leather it with a hood not. If it looks like it's five dollar right girl. Don't look at cheap leather jackets. Neither do guys so sucked out moving forward. I also think listen there's a big controversy over the Chelsea boots 'cause girls have now deemed them like basic guys say shits, basic for us like the flannels around your fucking ways Chelsea boots have been deemed basic. But I personally think that guy's wearing Chelsea boots to a bar. You really can't go wrong. Yeah. I think Chelsea boot is so hot totally fine. I do get however that there are guys listening to this. That are like you guys can fuck up fuck off. I'm not wearing. A Chelsea boo and a leather jacket. You know, what I mean because that's not some. Yeah. Into those guys. I say get like a wealth hitting hoodie. Sick dope. Hoodie, and where it with like ripped jeans vans because that look is also hot too. I think vans on a guy are so fucking hot. Yeah. I think that some guys don't know what shoot aware I really do think any guy can pull off a good ban like the black van with the white totally fine. But the hoodie cannot be like your school hoodie, like find a cool. Yeah. Lack gray hoodie. That's kind of like a universal Goto. Where that I am also approve of hats. I approve of guys wearing hats to the bar not on a first date. Let me clarify not on a first date. But I do think hats the club or hats to Amar's, totally fine. Where joggers if you're just chilling joggers? If you guys are going out like grab food, and it's not like a official. I ate joggers are so hot on guys. I only with sneakers I agree. You said earlier if you're gonna be doing like. Leather jacket or Jean jacket. I mean, this this really applies anything genes as well. It's not that they necessarily have to be expensive. But they have to just look like they're good quality in the art expensive. Yeah. So some brands mention yet guys listen up, I know this may not be in some people's price points. But this is what you should be basically replicating your outfits office off of for example, All Saints so hot ragging bone off light. Those are perfect examples. There are so many outfits in All Saints that literally you just replicate. Do it a little bit less expensive. Right. We get if you count afford that lately. Fuck I can't afford absolately. Also, guys, we have we totally understand what the hell guys. Do not have diversity when it comes to what they can wear to a bar, pant wise, you guys literally can only wear blue jeans or black jeans. Let me say though, invest in a good fucking pair of jeans should not be able to shove a baseball bat up your fucking pants. They should not be that baggy. Okay. They should be on your fucking lay its jeans a little flair, and I gotta go gotta jet. Okay. Like, Cody, Cody mad at us. Knock it off the genes, they're not even floods but just short enough that you can see the guy's ankle. I- I- Dr not getting one job. You've one job is to get a good pair of fucking jeans. Why can't you just it's not that hard ended entire Sunday? Going shopping for one pair, no girl is gonna know if you are wearing the same pair of jeans on Friday night for Saturday. Right. Okay. Yeah. So I do like a rip in gene producer. That's totally fine. Totally hot obsolete. You rock that. You're good. Okay. So moving on. Yeah. We'll we'll post it on our story an honor Instagram, let's move on. So because I have a very passionate topic. Hey, guys. It's time to talk about girls on top. We've talked about eating out girls. We've talked about the blowjobs. There's always more to come on those aspects. But we really haven't talked to girls are home girls are daddy gain about what the fuck to do when you're on top of dick. So good morning. Hello. Daddy, girls are here to give it to you. We're here. So first and foremost, so yeah, we have had a lot of girls right in saying that they are insecure sometimes if they've been having a bloated week or if they feel like they've been gaining weight. They don't wanna get on his they're afraid of what their body looks like the guy girls. This rent is a don't flatter yourself. Don't flatter yourself thinking that this guy is looking at anything other than your tits and ask while you're writing and your whole don't get competed. He's literally looking at your tits. You're asked your vagina your whole your mouth at the end of day. You're just three holes and you're trying to figure out where he's gonna come. What he's going out night. Okay. Would it's true though. I hate to say black girls, you just you don't need to worry about it. You know, how many times I'm like, I've you'll so bloated. I feel Sogo. I don't wanna get on top of the sky us coming back from thanksgiving break laundry hip over here, and I'm gonna get fucking on top. And write it like, I'm a goddamn, supermodel. They don't care. They're not looking at your blows weeds or not. They really don't give a fuck. They don't like we said guys can buck a couch cushion, so he will. Absolutely fuck you. If you've got a whole so who girls now that we've all gotten passer insecurities as get up there and ride this thing out one little ob- -solutely if you get on his day, and you're confident about it. That's the hottest thing guys. If I try and mushy, it just is does dude when a guy like grabs you and puts you down in looks like he knows how to fuck you. Yuck. I feel the same way as you literally are getting fucked by him, and you're like I want to get on top and you shove him down. And you get up there. He's like. Holy shit. I'm ready to watch. It's go girl. Go to he's like, I don't care if I'm fucking fuck in heifer. No maranda. Oh, he's like around issues. Do it doesn't matter. If you're eighty pounds two hundred it doesn't fucking matter. Enjoy yourself because at the end of the day girls, we know when we're on top is a lot of times mostly when we enjoy it most. Yes. So let's get into the dirty details. Daddy, gang. There are couple positions that we wanna talk to you about because we've also talked to you guys about if you've listened to the Kuch cobbler combo episode about how basically it allows you in this position to come easiest because we can stimulate the clip we can control the by. Everything's working for us up there. So you ride his dick like your skin in chairs, you're saying. Yeah. So your whole you always talk about the scooting in the chair. Why don't you talk about that a little bit? Okay. I think this is the best position of your trying to have your Clint stimulated. Yeah. I think it's also enjoyable for the guys well -absolutely. I mean, it's pretty like self explanatory. You're humping. Being or grinding. You're going back and forth. You're not going up in down. Yeah. And it's kind of fun because you can also like bend over and kisses Nak or out with him or whisper seven his year. Well, that splits that specific position. I would also like to clarify guys. I think it's girls. Sorry, said guys girls, it's so hot if you are scooting in the chair kind of thing and you lean forward, and you're like kissing his neck and you start talking dirty to him. And then there are two things you can do with your hand. You're either gonna be cut him in the face. You're going to grop conducting and choke him out. Noah's it shredded nano, I do always get. Okay. Either you are going to go down, and you're gonna touch your clip while you're talking him, he'll feel that. And that's feels great him because he knows your pleasure in yourself or two you are going to put your hand behind your back, and you're gonna go for his balls, and you're going to basically lightly massage and fondle his balls while you're fucking him. And while you're talking dirty to him in his ear girls. This gets guys all the time. I've literally this team I, but I've literally done this in one position and not done anything else and made a guy come because I was being nasty and his ear saying things and my hands were on him. I'm still like, it's great. Maybe you could even like put around his butthole, you could absolutely could fingers, but to you you could go down go down south around abandoned position. So that guy is a great position. However, I am convinced I've seen it like you see it in their is. They're like, no she fucking didn't girl. Nls. If you wanna take things up not, and listen, I know some girls may be like, yes, we know this, Alex. But there are some girls that don't swim. I'm you know, informing the daddy game spread the love when you're on him guys going up and down when your knees are on the bed and you're on top of him is just like child's play. Like, we're not fucking around with daddy. Getting you don't go up and down on your knees. You're getting your squats in like I've said in the past. And I'll say it again, you're getting your squats today. Ladies, and that means your feet your toes, and your he'll are on the mattress on the bed. Okay. So you are literally in a full-blown crouch squat position with his we inside of you. Okay. So you you start on your knees? Like, he's inspiring on your knees. And then and then you literally put your hand on his chest. Look at him. And you put your auto. You're literally Waddell your way up and you are squatting on his dick damn when you do this. I swear to God men will fall in love and girls L, though, it is kind of a workout which is great. Yet, our workout in. Yeah. It's a lot of word knows. We're not going to the gym. I know but guys this position. It's it's definitely one for the boys and girls because you're we're both feeling everything at that point going up, and you're going down, and you're going all the way fucking down. What does that right at a fair where you've got thrown up? And then you go rock rocket is a rocket. This is the raw this is the rocket. I rocket not the reverse rock yet. We're gonna get there. This is the rocket. You're facing him. So while you're doing this guys. It's so important that you switch up. Your speeds. You're not fucking bouncing up and down. Like, a psycho starts slow. Always have like maybe your hand on his chest and the beginning. Okay. So we're gonna have like your left hand on chess other hand may be touching your tits. Whatever it be touch your hair. I don't give a shit as you start to progress with your how the speed of it, you're going faster. It's really fucking hot. If you go no hands, and you just kind of let your hands fly, and you're just kind of look mono hand. Look look on. No hand, Paul. No. Now, basically, that's what you're going to do. And he's going to be like, I am ready to come all up in there. And you're not done yet. Ladies, you're really not done. So that. Yeah. So we're going to call that the rocket which should you should all be doing. If you're not ABS daddy game. Get on the rockets. So you're doing that. Also, you can be doing the same thing. Always touching your clip today yourself hut. Your boobs whatever next position where we wanna talk about. We're going to call the reverse cowgirl cyclone. Oh shit. Oh. Fuck okay girls. We all know what the reverse cowgirl is. We've all been there. We've all done it. And if you haven't don't worry, we're here. So reverse cowgirl is pretty self explanatory. You're on him and your first you're doing what we just explain. Yes. But back, then you can always do you can be on your knees for that. And you can also get in the squad position, which is really fucking hot. My suggestion for the reverse cowgirl cyclone is girls. This position is enjoyable for us. But I want you guys to think of sometimes it's like when I tell girls like how oh well fuck on porno ish when I tell girl suck dick I want you to just like imagine you have a penis. Right. Like, do you know what I mean that sound weird? But little I I always imagine. My peanuts. I'm honestly, I do I'm like I obviously thing about what feels good for me. But it's like it's like how would this feel car doing it like the sloppiness to wetness you can kind of envision right? It would feel. So when I tell you guys when you're in reverse cowgirl at one point, I think a lot of the daddy gang. Members are going to get wiped up in married, if you pull this shit now, you are on your knees. You don't have to do this in the the waddling duck upward squat position on your knees. You're riding him you're scooting in your chair. He's looking at the beautiful view of your ass. Now, again, about the whole self conscious thing before I tell you guys with his girls. There are so many girls that are my God. He's gonna see my asshole. He's literally going to be like, oh my God. That's such a weird view. No. This is what guys dream of this is literally the position everyday want. Guys. Don't look at anything on a girl's body and say it grows when he's inside of us specifically. Clarify that. So basically, this is how I'm going to try to explain it. I I can't get on the top of the table and explain it's a really gonna try to get descriptive. Okay. He's looking at you your fucking him verse cowgirl, you're gonna lean forward as if you're like like stretching out like in a crawling position almost like our bedding for your arms going arming crawl. Yes. Okay. So he's still in you. But you're kind of like bureau chest is bending forward towards the bed away from him. Okay. At this point. His dick is inside of you. I figured love that you're gonna have it basically come out halfway. Oh. And what you're gonna do is this what your legs can be. Like, your knees are on the bed their little spread apart. And you are going to basically shift side to side while his dick is halfway in. You know, you have a shaft is out half of a shop is out the rest is n you're kind of almost like grinding back and forth. Like like shimmy like, yeah. Like back, swaying, your sweat, got it. And so his view as he can see it in there. But he can also see some of his two, and it's a great view. And then what you start doing? Is you start kind of doing circles, and you go back you lean back on it? And then you go out of it forward. I. I like thinking about like a figure eight almost do that right now my chair. Okay. And I I totally. I wanted to know guy on the I thought I was like, total savage. I've really have never heard of that move ever. And I'm like ready to give sound so hot. I listen. I know this is really vulgar. But I'm just trying to spread the fucking love to the downing. I know it's really out there. But like this shit is so fucking hot. I remember one of my ex's was like where the fuck did. You learn that right. And I don't know the day. We're all trying to fucking excel here. Exactly. And that's what it comes down to girls get into it. And try, and listen, I will be honest. It is difficult if his penis is a little bit smaller to do. So because like you're trying to get off of it a little bit and start the motion. But you just gotta literally get creative with it. And if especially if you're pretty close with the guy that you're fucking like babe, I wanna try something. Yeah. And you just don't use to be as pulled out. Exactly, you know, what I mean, obviously more of him in. So think just you got. I think I am the day. What I take. What is the dick want? So girl, you have the rocket. Now jet your squats today. Ladies, that's what you're going to all your friends. Did you get your squats in tonight? Okay. That's the rocket and then the reverse cowgirl cyclone, you are gonna be swaying back and forth, halfway L. And you're gonna go to tangles. And also if you wanna really added in you, can he can see you with your hand, and you can be like touching your while you're doing guys usually Clinton position. Also, if you really all let again handcuffed. Okay. Okay. But also, and I contact I think in that position can be hot. If you just like one look back. You don't need to do the whole time. But one icon, that's always anytime you can look back at the guy heard that. So I may saying so I hope you all had a great time at sex Ed with Alex Cooper thankful for Alex Cooper. That's what I was thinking about during this like God damn be without this girl. Doing the glass. I told Sofia that I had like a little segment I wanted to talk about in the podcast today. And I tried like low key explained to her in our apartment what I was gonna talk about. And I am like your come to my bed. Like, let me show you, and I didn't go out and just save it for the fucking podcast. So I can only imagine me trying to show Sofia that in our in our say are. About say oh. In our apartment moving on UNIFIL Dicks on the topic of dick Lovett, dick pics. Okay. So FIA we've had people write in. And they are like how in the hell you guys have talked about. How guys can have for new than tip? Pigs picks. How the hell do we ask is for deck picks you say can I get a picture of your deck? I take legroom. Wells, would you know? Okay. But sure Dink of some girls, I know we have like some people are of the younger audience. I get it. There are some girls that are gonna be like a little. I don't know. That's like a little forward to just be like. Hi, can I have a picture of your dick? Yeah. The only reason I say that is like just asking for picture of his dick. 'cause like it's a guy like they're always right show off their day. I personally think girls if you don't wanna be that forward. I would just say, hey, like, can I get a picture of you? Can I get a pick? I think it would be so hot, right? You know what? I mean. I mean, I think guys would obviously know you're talking like God just tell a guy that for anything that'd be so hot it be so hot. You bought me a pair of Chanel, so basically sake can I get a pig. I think it'd be so hot. And if he says of what literally just say of your day, but if you guys want to like get a little bit more slutty with it. You can always obviously pull the whole I wanna touch myself writer and think about you send me a picture of your dick always a good one classic so girls, I know we've had a lot of people also be like to dick picks. And like, I only think first of all I have a lot of dick pics in my DM's, which I don't fucking appreciate. So if you're that guy. I I don't really get. It must be for attention or they get off on that ship guys. At dick pictures unsolicited in the DM's, sparking stop unsolicited picks in general. Yeah. I think are no. Unless like, you're dating any like sense go for it. But if it just like a guy guys if you're just talking to a girl don't fuck in whip out your Dickinson. I don't care how hot your dick it. No. We don't want have the girl ask for it. But also girls, I don't think you should be like dick pic or gross. If like, you have friends that want dick pic center, like, okay. If he's going to be sucking you later, obviously, you wanna see what what you're working with. Or if you're missing it. Whatever the fuck it is like if you're dating it's hot. He's like, babe. I'm thinking about your right now, obviously. And so is he. Victory over there. He is. Okay. I want to get into one of my favorite topics ever. I love when you get excited about topic. And it's not just me talking about how to within crews your vagina, dick. This topic is going through your partners phone, so many people have been writing in and asking if that's okay to do. I am going to say something might come. As a surprise considering that we are the podcast call her. Daddy media. I think that it is not okay to go through your partners phone unless you are almost one hundred percent certain that they are up to no good cheating. What have you? So I agree with that. And I think you can agree. We don't condone going through their phone unless you're almost positive that something's up right? Yeah. Because listen, I think I mean, I think you and I have both done this you too about your eggs. I mean, you were in and around his all my God. I used to like get on their intrigue. It was my phone. His friends would text him. I'd be like, no, Brad. We won't becoming dinner. I didn't give a I didn't give a shit. But like, yeah. That's what I'm saying. Like it. Your relationship is going gray. And you guys are in such a good place. Don't go for the phone and just try to stab Todd shape. Because that's what I would do y'all would be totally great. And I would still go for the cause Jillian also think like human nature the minute. You do look I think personally it got so addicting, and it's like one minute you're looking at the tax and the next minute you're in the snapshots and the next minute you're in their photos, and it just keeps going in there. Every time he goes to the fucking bathroom your checking God damn phone and it's unhealthy, and you just can't help keep doing exactly. And then at that point you start to see things that are going to hurt your feelings. But things that are perfectly, okay. For him to be doing. Yes, he should be allowed to like vent to his friends about like what a bit you're being that day for. I mean, you're gonna get on there. Maybe see text from his mom saying, you know, she's upset at you about something. Like, you're going to see things that are going to hurt your feelings, and everyone has a right to other private will also. Oh, I know just from experience like things can absolutely get taken out of context you fucking Winky face or Smirke face. And you're like Kay bitch. You're cheating were done. And it's his fucking cousin that lives in Wisconsin. And you didn't even know. And he's like, it's just you guys. Listen, I understand. It's tempting it's twenty eight teen were all it's so easy to cheat. Nowadays, it is so easy. And it's terrible. But at the same time if there is no trust in the relationship than what you're wasting your goddamn time. If you feel like you have to check his phone twenty seven with that. I think we both when we're going to turn it around said if this person and were saying guys this go for guys on yells, if you are almost positive that this person is being shady in. It's not just you being paranoid. I say go for the fucking. I was gonna stop you. Because you knew is not the cut it, ladies, gentlemen. The fucking phone is child's play. Don't even ask them for their phone you walk into the room you put down their computer or their ipad. And you say babe in order for us to move forward. I need you to open this right now. Yep. It's called the motherfucking. I cloud bitches. You think if he's being fucking shady if she's being fucking shady she's gonna leave it on her phone. They're not leading every single thing. They're changing the names from atom to Andrea, boom. Andrea. If the goddamn true. Yeah. So I have personally had experience with that. I talked about it in an earlier episode where I knew this guy was being shady. I he had literally would be so open with his phone. But I was like what the fuck is wrong. And then it occurred to me my guy from was like Cooper, the fucking ipad being D, And I was like gold, and this is the thing girls and guys you have to decide though before you bring this to them what you wanna do because there are some girls that are going to bring the ipod to them, and they're going to open it for you. And you're gonna find everything and you gotta have game plan. Are you not even what do you do? So when I tell you I sat down ahead in the ipod. And I said to him I need you to open this right now. And obviously, let me also say that he and I knew we were having issues like this out of fucking nowhere. And I think that's just a the best way to do it because you're not invading his privacy a-. And you're not like doing it behind his back. You're saying you really think there's an issue honest. With your partner and say, I'm really really struggling right now. I need to see. And also I hate to say but guys half the time. He doesn't even need to open it. You'll be able to tell the minute. I remember the minute. I pulled that thing out the guy turned casper. The fucking goes. He was so pale. He was shaking, and he was like what? And I'm like your thumb puts them on opens the ipad. And as I'm scrolling and seeing everything he was like mortified, but then he tried to play off. He's like what what? And I'm like, what do you mean? What the fuck? I love it was. Yeah. It was mazing bug guys. So yeah, I personally say bring out the ipad bring out the computer because no one's fucking cleaning up that ship because at the end of the in their mind, they're like, I'll delete everything here. And then all the news and all the tax will be on my computer, and they don't think we're fucking seven. But they don't understand daddy gang. We are all savages and we've talking no the game. So guys pulled the ipod in the computer, I'm used but use it sparingly. Absolutely. And also understand that people are gonna fucking change names. Yeah. But actually guys I was gonna say this this applies to guys and girls. No. 'cause girls are never on the wrong. Our last night. Dot wait. A second never go through a girl's phone ever. All's you can go through your man's phone. But don't go through rules fall. She didn't do anything wrong. Okay. No. You did. What did you do? Word looking we're on so FIA you had a story ideal. I love so storytime story because you know, being shady is a common topic. And I remember this story. I was about to tell Alex I wanna save it for the podcast. I'm here. So I started dating this guy. And he told me a story about what he had done in the past to his ex-girlfriend's. Okay. He was cheating on his girlfriend. He was in his room balls. Deep into the side peace love that his girlfriend shows up. No sounds like it's going to be a classic story. A classic getting clash then story mino-, he hears his girlfriend. So what does he do? He throws the side bitch into his closet. Okay. Expect the mistress concubine goes where she deserves to go any tells her to shut the fuck. Yup. If she knows what's good for her. He probably duct taped her mouth. Don't. So she's in the closet, and he knows God down while his girlfriend's downstairs, his thirty seconds to Texas roommate and be like, I don't know what the fuck to do can you stall my girlfriend who's at the front door. His roommate. I wish I could have shot is one of the shadiest characters I've ever met n came up with the most brilliant idea I've ever heard. Oh my God. He said let me grab the side bitch amd pretend that she is here for me stop. Yes. So my boyfriend goes downstairs and grabs his girlfriend says babe. I'm so glad you're here. While banks for surprising me like I wasn't expecting you. And he takes his girlfriend into like another room. So that his roommate can go upstairs and grab this. I out of the closet. She's tokyo. The roommate goes up stairs grabs the side, which and takes her. On stairs and introduces the girl to everybody, including the girlfriend who pretty much has no idea has no idea, and doesn't know that her boyfriend's dick is still wet from this nearly that they were just introduced I mean, how fucked up so this poor girlfriend is probably being the nice hospitable girlfriend. She is she's probably like, hi. It's so nice to meet you all my God, your boulevards roommate. Right. You're hooking up with him. Like, I love that. You have that for you guys are so cute. Hi, nice to meet you should date. Meanwhile, your is like literally wiping his off like, ooh, I'm still wet from her fucking come right? What what I I sing is that how gross is that? And I mean, this guy had the the nerve gas ity to expect me to trust him. When we started dating after he told me that story that brings me to a really good point do not divulge this shady shit. You done in your pass to someone you're planning on dating because it will fuck with their head. I never trusted this guy after he told me that story ever. But you went on dated him Ida date him for like two three years. So but I trust him. No. Because that I mean, dude. Okay. There's two sides one not the call her. Daddy side is that takes some type of fucked up person to literally be inside a girl girlfriend. Joe's up walks down. Literally introduces the two of them to each other and has no Vakhin issue as it off like like the call her. Daddy side of me is like what a fucking genius holy shit. How the fuck did they come up with that? Because I mean, I've had my shady fuck in moments of and I've tried to like dip and move in this ship. But I never once would think just act like fucking person. I'll why do you think Dave in for two or three years because he's a fucking genius. He might be cheating on me. But holy shea. I need those genes for my kids are oh my God. That's I mean, that's an unbelievable story. I would love to hear other people's like possible. No, my God is that where are we encouraging behavior? I just drink. I would just love to hear other people's stories because I've done shady shit. But that is. Different level of genius. It is. I mean, Alex if you're ever in that situation bring the guy over to me, I will play it off. Like, he is my boyfriend. I love that. I also think it was a good point. You said was a lot of people have this problem of boundaries. If you are going if you're an over share if you if you like to talk about yourself, a lot don't fucking share with someone all the deep dark holes of your pasta all the time. They don't need to know that especially kind of pursue this person dating. Sometimes I think people feel like it's so good to be open and honest, you have to be aware that there are some situations that need to be kept to yourself, and you do not need to share that with that person one hundred because if someone like you said, you could never really trust them that story is always in the back of your head on the podcast telling it right now. I'm like, you everyone you're introduced me to like was he just inside of her. I don't know. Well, never know. Let's talk about questions. Yes. So I one from the data gang members. I saved a nude from this guy hooked up with and it was from two point five years ago. Is it me or is it seriously longtime to keep a new like is your dick so unphotogenic that you can only get a nice picture every two years? Holy shit in a half years. You guys never heard our fourth episode just to give you guys a little background on why this person's writing if you haven't listened all episodes in our fourth episode. We literally go into detail and explain to people everyone has their fire nude if you're going to reuse nudes. You need to make sure you screen shot it and send the screen shotted nude or else when they save your picture if you sent the original that was taken back in March. It's showing that it was taken in March, not in November brilliant. So you guys girls everyone's getting fucked because now guys are all saving your news in scrolling. All. All the way up. This will take six months ago. Save yourself screen shot. You're nude son the screen shot be good. But I didn't even know like guys at so easy for them to take dick pic. Why are they reading cooked? You wanna half years like, I get it. And I will be able to forgive you. It's like a few weeks, maybe a month. Yeah. Two and a half years kinda scares yellow what's going on down there now. Okay. So next one is. I have been fucking with this guy with a girlfriend for a while now. But obviously, I'm out exclusive within because he has a girlfriend no ship. So I went for my annual checkup thinking, it was no big deal. But then I got a call few days later, hang I had Claudia, obviously I had to tell the guy because I figured there was no fucking way that he didn't have it. Also. I'm also over here being a crazy happy bitch thinking he's gonna have to tell his girlfriend that he has Clemencia and he'll break up with her plot twist. This dude gets tested and tested negative. Apparently, this guy is immune to the clap or something, and I'm pissed was damn near thanking Clemenza forgetting him to break up with his girlfriend on the plus side. I clearly have the do clam because he still fucks with me even though I had a Clemencia scare. Okay. Okay. I couple issues within each to. I have a few unless I don't wanna shit. I don't wanna shit on guys. 'cause we appreciate writing in. But there is a couple things wrong. Right. Buchan story. Okay. I think the number one glaring issue is what is this girl have against the girlfriend? Why? Yeah. Why are you being a bitch? And being like, I wish you got limit. Yeah. Yeah. It's all about you being pissed the guy won't break up with her. But at the end of the day, it's like so you literally will this is the second point. You literally wanted this girl the get Clemencia. So they would break up and what he would just. End up with you like your default? Like, oh, fuck she broke up. Now. I'll leave her. It's crazy. How much these side bitches? No offense. Call you bitch. But these side girls, they feel so entitled and they're like talking shit on the girlfriend. I'm like at the end of the day. She's the girl, right? And you're on the side. Right. She's the one he takes to advance. Okay. You'll want you're on the side. She's a Turkey and near the coleslaw on the side. Right. So you have you have no reason to ever be like fucking mad or mean to the main bit. I I don't get that. Also again, I don't mean to be rude. But like he's still with her. So clearly, she's got something you don't don't be at bitch to her. She doesn't even know you exist and also don't be a bitch and try and go tell her through what an S T D. Yeah. It's fine. I mean, you should really never wish the upon anyone. Yeah. Especially girl. That's literally has never done anything to you. Right. So I don't know about listen girlfriend. I'm glad that you got over your scare. I'm not gonna comment anymore, and what you should or should not be doing with a guy that's in a relationship. But I think what we would help you out here is just kind of be weary of don't fuck in be bitch to someone that doesn't even know about you and has never done anything to you take it out on the guy number three choking. So I need to adjust choking, please. This is from guy. I've had some girls who demand choking in the bedroom. And then some who are turned off by it and others who turn and try to choke me. Why two girls like being choked do girls think that just because we they think we like choking them that they'll like it? 'cause that's just false Sino. Also address the craziness who'd want to actually be choked hardcore d- slapped always weird to encounter. Okay. This is so interesting to me because do guys even like that for real. I want guys to let us know to get ocht. Yeah. I think if they like choking this. Is my thing. I think a lot of times on this podcast guys. We are talking about situations. Sophie, and I both fuck with or we don't fuck with everyone has their own fucking deal. Some people thought kinky some people don't and everyone has their own shit with regard to choking. I have been with some guys who are into it. And I've been with some guy aren't into it. I think it is very situational. I think there are some girls that just like, oh guys like to be choked. So now, I'm gonna do this. And it's fucking awkward 'cause they're forcing it. And you know, I think people can really sense that hell when you're forcing it in your faking it like y'all just feed genuine if you're gonna like try some kinky shit, y'all. I agree. And I think also girls are the same way. It's like there's some girls who liked to get choked. I have been but then they're also times where it's like taking a little fuck into far. Right. And I also think how comfortable you are with the person sometimes it can be fucking hot in one night stand. But if they go too, far, it's fucking scary. 'cause you're about to die. You know, it's all about balance. And it's also all about who your partner is at the time. And what you guys know about. Each other and feel next one. So okay, I told my husband to fuck me like I'm a little whore. And he told me to stop trying to act cool. I literally went to bed help. I actually love I love that. I'm so sorry. Because again, just like what we said not everyone is going to be down for stuff. And I can just imagine. Her husband looking at her and being like shut the fuck. I'll just stop it. Okay. We have we have three kids in having the same sex for seven years not nowhere. You're about to ask me to call you a whore. And I it's rolling over in bed. Like fuck. I love when we tell people things were just like it works every time you have to say say your little slut. But I do think it's one thing to go right after it. If you're with your husband and your out of nowhere like, oh, you're I think maybe have a drunk night. Maybe say something a little less aggressive, and then slowly ramp it up I think sometimes people whip out of nowhere and the guys like if it looks like she's trying to be a porn stowed. You know, you've got a really ease into it. If you wanna make it happen. That's why we have suggested in past episodes get fucked up. Do something crazy when? You're drunk. So then it be can become normalized when you're sober. Yeah. Next one. So I've been with my boyfriend for year and a half and he loves to fuck with the lights on us. Nice. That's a compliment. But I think there is something that makes me more comfortable to get down and dirty and try new things which will hopefully make me more comfortable with the lights off. I totally understand what she's saying me too. I think that they should mix it up on and off. I mean, I personally like especially like, obviously there are times that it's hot like morning sacks or something. If it's like the lights are on. But I think you can definitely get freak your girls naturally are more insecure with their body and what they're trying to do sometimes. So just turn the lights off your girlfriend. I noticed like when it's really dark almost pitch black like all of your other senses are high end, and you kind of feel around more in LA almost be more like central with your body.

ARRIVAL w/ Jeremiah Watkins

"The show the government folks, the same government who've ruined our out Garin bankrupted are Noah Terry, these people most of them don't even have guns. We could be facing a full-scale invasion at our president is just willing to sit back and let them why Woodforde you watch some there and the laptop oh private Johnson. Yeah. You know? I was thinking, you know, we've got these aliens outside. Yeah. Sure. Big in unimaginably powerful. Yeah. I mean who knows what they're capable of who knows what they're capable of. But who's in charge of deciding what we're doing with the liens right now, the government same government that bankrupted our health care and. Yeah. And defended the military something. Well, yeah. Yeah. So I've read that. So here's what I'm thinking shot across the bow. You and me get in their light a bomb off flow get out. Okay. Let the bomb explode kill the aliens. Okay. But there at twelve different sites. So we're going to kill the ones here. These only the ones here show a force. Let. Show everyone know that we can kill then he's alien, and I don't want to be a naysayer here, but a party pooper going on likes a naysayer nobody likes to party pooper, but negative Nancy. But if we blow up just this one, don't you think the eleven other really highly intelligent alien spacecraft's will get revenge. Don't don't you fear that they'll come after us or I think if they see the power of America, it's gonna freak them out. And they're just gonna leave and go back. Yeah. You convince me that's true. So let's do it. You wanna do it tomorrow? Or when you think tomorrow would be great. We have a bunch of bombs were the army. Yeah. Yeah. And it's all rival. So we can shoot, you know, if they come after us we can. Yeah. And Tillerson ourselves run up there. Yup. Blow it up. Yep. It's show force. Joe force out of here. Yeah. Yeah. Let's protect this country. Get the aliens out, right? Okay. I love it. Great. I'm glad you're on board. No problem. I was worried that this was a really dumb idea no confidence that this is definitely the move. We had. Thank it is the move. I think it's going to work, and I was just going to go. Get a burrito or some if you wanna come. Oh that sounds really good. Okay. Let's do that. Let's go. Did get it. Right. We'll we have to fight. Hi, everybody. Welcome to another episode of bad signs. I'm your host Ethan Edinburgh. And today, we are talking about a fantastic film called a rival every now, and then the films, we do are a little more. Let's just say annoying. But this film, I felt was absolutely fantastic. And I have to absolutely fantastic guests. I, you know, him from the Jeremiah wonders podcast. It's Jeremiah Watkins. Hello w anima scientist, and he's an expert in saxophone. Yeah. The saxophone scientists cool. Yeah. It is. We've never had that on the show. Oh, happy to be here. Happy to have you. And of course, you know, her from her book, secrecy literacy and perfectibility in indigenous New, Mexico, it's Dr Aaron Devonport. Hey, thanks for having me. Thanks for being here. So you're you're I wanna say this, right? It says here that you specialize in linguistic and sociocultural anthropology. You're interested in technologies of language circulation secrecy and in visibility the in Berendt ac-. So I wanna ask you about that in in digit. Why do you say this word indigenous not indigene indigenous and sovereignty sovereignty was blowing and leaks and critical language documentation? That is all correct. But boy, I really need to work on streamlining. On sane say, I'm instantly intimidated. I'm intimidated by your saxophone. But I didn't bring my sacks with me. So there's no tangible way like you have your knowledge. It's all right here. Yeah. So obviously. Yeah. A little bit of a long winded explanation of all the things you're into. But maybe you could take me through some of them because I don't really understand it all so what about what my my main point where I'm zooming in. Here is secrecy and invisibility. Yeah. Simul linguistic anthropologists, which is we'll get to this. I'm sure a little different than the linguists in the movie. So we're really interested in language and its relationship to culture. So how people actually use language like the idea that you can't study it outside of culture interaction the secrecy part. I work with a group of an indigenous group to New Mexico and one in Texas Ahler speakers of this language called. Well, I'm actually not going to say the name of the language because in my I know someone's right? Language, kind of is. So these are folks who are losing their language to English and Spanish, increasingly like a lot of other indigenous people worldwide, and they're trying to reintroduce it by using literacy for the first time. So it was an oral only language, and they're very concerned about it leaking out to non tribal members or even within the community. So I use that as a way to understand why we keep secrets what that does socially wouldn't be good to get the word out and spread the language and keep the language alive. Yeah. Good question. I mean, they very much want to keep it alive, but their language is very tied to their religion and to their political system. So for instance, if you know, let's say a healing ceremony or particular word or a particular song that you know, is just for your clan and someone else hears it, then it could ideas it could upset the whole balance of the political and religious system. So. Kind of like, you know, when you read about other secret societies like, the Mason or any number of groups that really their power comes from holding onto particular kinds of knowledge. Gosh, you very cool. You have any secrets Djerma. I've I've got so many secrets layout shirt channel. Was one of my secrets is has to do it today is I showered and put tie like time into like getting ready for this. Because I thought it was on video. And then yesterday, I did a podcast. Thank you should have told you. I know then yesterday, I did a podcast where I did not get ready at all. And I was just love and that was on zero for zero right now. So we can see you looking like sorry, dad podcast Ryan dunes. Great guest. Yeah. Well, we'll take a picture. So people can pretty you are. It looks fantastic wife Jean jacket. I came in with white Jean jacket confidence to a podcast confidence. It's pretty scrolling. It's pretty strong. I'm glad that you did. It's giving us confidence. I can tell thrown Cologne for you listeners out there. I usually don't do that for Bod gas, but I did read and I love Ethan all of you do Jeremiah and listeners sniff. It up sniffing back alone. Okay. So let's talk about this film for a second. Did you guys? See it in theaters. What did you think of the film? What were your first impressions? I saw originally a couple years ago as a screener like a like a like a sag schooner. They got sent to me in the mail. He's he's important in the industry. Go. Hello. I am I scrub through it for about half an hour on who last night did just catch up on it. And be like, okay. I remember late. The different beats and stuff like that. I don't wanna be like I saw two years ago. And then you start saying stuff, and I'm like, I don't remember this movie. But so I saw at home and on my Devi. And it was I really enjoyed it. Whenever I watch. It was one of those things where you know, by the end of the movie where you know, the region spoilers on this. Yeah. Yeah. If you haven't seen the movie first of all, you should definitely stop this. And go watch it right now. Sometimes I will say don't worry about it. It doesn't matter. You know, the movies great, anyways, we're going to spoil the plot. If you haven't seen it, it's fine. But in this particular case, I really do think if you haven't seen the movie, I don't wanna ruin it for you. Because it's so good. Don't make sure you watch it. I I can't stand telling people not to listen to the podcast, but I would stop here watch the film comeback, and then Jeremiah going to spoil it, right? Yeah. So whenever the bigger veal the end. But basically in all about time, that's still nuts. Spoiling too much. No. He's keeping secret keeping secret. She sees the future guys. Okay. That's what's up. But I got it was that moment for me. Whereas, oh, this is so cool like and that made me start thinking like is this like a pot like us whenever you see movies? Like this. It makes you question like is stuff like this possible? Which is always like kind of an exciting feeling, right? Like whenever she's talking to the aliens. And they're kind of figuring out the language, and like it gets to that point in the movie where she is starting to understand where so well that it showing subtitles on the screen for us. That's like like for me as a breakthrough on my, oh, this is like this. What what if this could happen? Like, what what if there are liens out there that we could get to a point where we're communicating where we have their language down. Yeah. And they have Arlene which down and it's open conversation. Those kind of exciting. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I agree with you. I really liked it. I saw it in the theater. I mean, so many so many of my friends and colleagues told me have you seen a rival? And you know, this is something you podcast. Listeners can't see, but I have red hair. So it was that, you know, the moment for us red headed linguist. It was very exciting. I know, hey. Partying on beams coming in. Yeah. It was very exciting. So I saw it on that. And I really liked it. I mean, of course, there's a few details that I would love to pull apart with you guys that I take issue with. I know. Yeah. But overall, I thought they did a great job. And I'm with you like, it's such a provocative idea that the language that we speak or understand really can have implications. And the way that we see the world. And in this case the way we experience the world. I really liked it. I watched it last night too. So same reason. Yeah. I watched it yesterday as well. Loved the film thought it was great. And before we get into your of hip heaves with it, which I know I want to hear them very badly. I do want, and I usually don't talk about this stuff. But this picture was nominated for eight Academy Awards, none of which were for Amy Adams Amie, Adam for some reason was like snubbed and not nominated for an Oscar for her performance, which I thought was awesome. She's so good in this movie. And it also reminded me of another snub, which you might know about you were nominated for outstanding teacher of the year. But the university of New Mexico in two thousand fifteen and did not win. What in the fuck? Fuck. Indeed, I can give his contact information for you know, people who are probably involved in making that decision. Little I might have to compose myself on air. Bringing bringing up this. You know, terrible tragedy in my pass might get a little misty here. But speaking of tragedies, we've got Jeremiah Watkins comedy career. How do you feel about that? You have not gone the last few jobs that you wanted to remind. Now, let's talk about that. Where are you at mentally with this? I really like that segue, by the way. Oh, segues with these new show actually segues never actually get to the meat of anything. Of anything really saw if you have a chance to to get Aaron by the way, misstep import MRs Devon barter. They call you like students mostly they call me air and really act. Act progress. I usually tell them whatever they're comfortable with some students. I wanna say professor debit. Well, yeah, if you can get her then great. She's got a four point nine on rate my professors. So that's pretty close to perfect. It's probably just one who was having a bad day. Oh, so shout out to them wake up. So. Yeah. Let's get to like what what was wrong. I have. I have a couple ideas like guesses, but but just lay it on us. There's there's one part. I'll just say where he comes in and plays her a like a recording. And he's like, hey translate this. It's like towards the beginning forest Whittaker comes in and tells her like what does this mean? And she's like, well, I can't possibly tell you. And so I thought maybe that's like a linguistic complaint. Yeah. That was I mean, really he's expecting incredible things from her. I did that. She's a translation expert. I was like, wow. I want to be that, you know. I don't know if anyone can just, you know, given a recording certainly no one, I know certainly not me usually you would call in someone who was a specialist on a particular language, right? And I think he would have called in like a whole fleet of linguists. I mean, everyone I love the idea that there's only one person like she's going to save the world, you know, she does a great job with that. But there is this idea that one person she's the. Sort of like unicorn who can he, you know, easily apprehend and later in the movie where she's speaking Mandarin to general linguists will focus on one or two languages. I mean, some do comparative work, but that doesn't necessarily mean that can speak chooses. Oh, you see this is very disappointing. Supported by. I'm pretty good at Spanish and the language that I work on that. I refer to as Kayla in my. That's the secret language that. It's a Kiowa to know in language. So there's the language family. Big spoiler, right. So yeah, I'm pretty good in that language better at writing than speaking. I'd argue Joel of Jessica Coon, the lady that this is based on 'cause that's pretty sweet like they've base it on this girl who's a linguistics based Amy Adams character on her. And so she does have lunch with Amy Adams and talk to her about it. And I don't know all this kind of stuff so unfair so unfair. Yeah. Another snob. Can we please keep track here? Yeah. I read up on her and her training. She's very well trained and her work looks really interesting. She does let us stuff on ergotisms, which was the super nerdy phenomenon in language that I'm not gonna talk about. We'll just because. It's languages of the world differ in the way that they Mark subjects and objects. So the different grammatical roles. Okay. And linguists really loved to divide up languages, according to oh, you know, things like their grammatical differences there sound differences. So she works on really interesting stuff. And it's done a lot of comparative work. She also apparently has done fieldwork. And that is something that I like about this foam a lot because it four grounds actually working with speakers in this case the help to pods. All right. So you're you're there with them. She does come from a slightly different training than I do in that she is definitely aligning herself. At least in what I read with Chomsky in linguists. So with Noam Chomsky and his ideas about language are different than how I was trained. So more of a focus on what is it about us that we're born with that allows us to speak and the chumps. Skin sort of come down and more of a formalist view that we're all born with this innate ability, whereas folks, like me linguistic anthropologists sometimes characterized as like, oh, you guys are crazy hippies over there. You're not really being scientists as I mentioned before we're very concerned with the relationship between language and culture. So we think that language really can't happen or we can't understand it outside of understanding society. Got you. Okay. Vague created a logo Graham bible which included over a hundred different completely operative logo grams, seventy one of which were actually featured in the movie, so I wanted to just ask your view on that did that seem of cool legitimate. Was that interesting? Yeah, it was very interesting. And I always appreciate when a movie goes the extra mile, for instance, the revenue like I have a friend who worked on that movie is vocal coach, they really, you know, research the ereck era and the and caddo and went for it. And the same thing here. I mean, almost like Klingon or you know, you read about game of thrones. They did. Lot to I think create a rocky language and worked with linguists. So yeah, this is definitely the way some languages would work where you have a particular sound. I mean, sorry particular visual image for one concept. So yeah, that's how you would go about it. They were talking about a movie like you would have to know the entire thing first and then like right with your left hand and right hand at the same time. I I don't know about that was I think I missed opportunity to explain where they were trying to go there. How would you explain it? Oh my God. Well, like that part of this group right now. I don't know. I mean, one thing that I think instead of answering that I think the missed opportunity. Yeah. Divert is that they didn't get into. I understand why it can be quite complex, but the different ways that alphabets can work. So if you think about the English alphabet, we have I mean, even though it's kind of a crappy imperfect alphabet with things like silent L and all sorts of weird things. Generally, the ideas that you have one symbol for one sound. And then we get to combine them, but there are other ways of doing alphabet. So you can have like this alphabet where there's one concept for one image. You can also have an alphabet that is syllable based eat Cherokee is like that. So you can have a particular image or symbol that stands for a syllable in the language. And so that was a missed opportunity the whole going from both directions. At once I think was an attempt to tie in with the way time was depict. Clayton's? I I would not know how to okay. Yeah. That was. Yeah. Are there? Like oh. This is talking about missed opportunities with there was there other things in the film that you were like, oh this not cool with me. I mean, I didn't have that strong feeling the whole. So it's built around the film is built around the Sapir wharf hypothesis and poor Amy Adams. She was told to say, it's the sapper Warf hypothesis, which, you know, no disrespect like that's most of graduate school is you learn how to pronounce these folks names correctly. So the Superiore FAI fath- assists is the idea that and she just that even I really don't I thought she was wonderful method. You met with the wrong lady. Amy good. No, I'm sure, you know, it was director Oskar committees. Like if she would have pronounced correctly. She would've got that. Oscar green agreed. That's how much influence we have as linguists, but the Superiore hypothesis, which she vary. You know? The writers vary correctly define in the movie, which is the idea that the language that we speak fluently or the languages the grammar the structure of that language has the potential, and I'm underlining that can you hear the italics the potential to affect our habitual thought and our habitual action. So they say that in the movie, but then there's much more of a what people have called a strong reading of the Superiore hypothesis, which is we're like, we're completely influenced by the grammar that we speak where like kind of times, you know, I can't get out of my English grammar. I must you know, look at. The world this way. And so the way the movie plays out. It's definitely that humans are determined. We're determined to act in particular ways because the language we speak, and when they learn or as a species, you get the feeling humans. Learn this language, and then they're able to see time differently experience time, that's a really interesting hypothesis. I headed I did some basic research. It was still tough to comprehend because how like I understand the dreaming thing where it's like. Okay. If I go live in France. And I'm speaking French for a year or two maybe I'll start dreaming in French. But how it affects my actions or behaviors I'm not I don't really see how that works. Yeah. It's really complex. So in his writing about this. And it's really interesting Benjamin, Lee Warf and also Edward Sapir. These are folks who are working the early part of the twentieth century and the mid part of the twentieth century, mostly with data from American Indian languages, which is one reason. I'm so interested in it. But anyway, Warf especially started noticing. In different ways that people were conceiving of time in one article. Right. And so he compared a Hopi speakers of Hopi with speakers of what he calls S A E standard average European. So this is just a way, I know. Yeah. I know it sounds of your hope he gets all the WM street way mail. Yeah. Yeah. Not unlike that in the it allows him to sort of look at all European languages as very similar and so without getting into the weeds here of how he does it. He just, you know, says the the way that Hopi requires you to Mark time is very different than the way that we think of time as English speakers. For example, we think of time it's something that's measured in units. The same way that we think our grammar requires us to say if you have a mass now like butter you have to say, oh, stick of butter or hey ability. Hey, and he says because we have to do that nor grammar with mass nouns we do that with time. So we. Think about it in this way, that's measurable moving in a line. And hope he people he's saying are doing it differently. And morph is been rightly criticised for sort of a thin at Nagasaki of Hopi people who spent time with them, but not as much time perhaps. But the way that it's always misunderstood is people said, oh does this mean that hope people don't experience time the same way? We do know everyone experiences time is getting later. Right. But they're required to do different things in their grammar, which leads them, you know, down potentially different paths. Terms of their thoughts and behavior. Okay. Very interesting. We've got to spend some time with the Hopi. Yeah. I hope we do. Nice time. Sorry. So I have one point in the film. She has a test. Amy Adams says ask him or ask her the sanskrit word for war and its translation. Did you know the fans get word? Okay. The I'm an expert translator. I I wish I mean that would be a dream. But I think why they did that is really interesting just to show. I mean, one thing I love about this movie. It's sort of a advertisement for the benefits of multilingualism and the idea behind this pure hypothesis that isn't it interesting that languages might parse things differently. And so when they have that translation, it shows that there's many different ways to make the word or the concept of war. Right. Yeah. I think that was like an overarching like anxiety for me watching the movie was just so many ways, they illustrated so many different ways that language could confuse people. You know, they're trying to they have that screen where they have like twelve different countries or something. And then they have like them trying to translate the aliens. And then. Just in the army camp. They couldn't get you know, they always are talking to like forest Whitaker, and he's always explaining like. All right. Look, I gotta take whatever the hell. You just told me and go to my general and tell him, and it's like everything is getting you know, confusing. There's a moment where they don't know if the translation for the word is weapon or their meaning it has tool. Right. Yes. That's like a big moment where people start to freak out there. He's wanted to take that information immediately. Like, we gotta get this out like and she's like calm down. Like, there's so many different meanings for this. They could mean it as like a simple they could just mean it as a tool it's not like immediately a weapon kind of thing. I mean, we probably run into that all the time. And it's like, we don't really talk about it, or we don't it doesn't come up in a way of like, you know, love for example, like a word that people throw in different way. I'm I'm watching the bachelor right now, for example. And you know, these people don't know each other at all and after like two dates, you know, they're like, I'm falling in love with you. And was like well, clearly love means. Something different to me, or you know, cameras have been rallying for two days. I have never been the Marin love any parts of your right? You're right. It's true. And now that you've watched the bachelor do you feel like your conception of love has been reconfigured falling in love all the time. Okay. So your wife is right. Yeah. Okay. So they'd call it non linear, Ortho Griffey orthography. Yeah. So they're trying to do is make a argument that there's a their orthography or alphabet way of writing. Is not one that is tense to you know, it doesn't have marking for tents or aspect. So. Yeah. Go hunt. Oh, okay. Yeah. Just. Yeah. Just here. Okay. Good. Yeah. I think that the ideas that somehow these signs are anchored. And we do have parts of our language that are not tensed. If you say stop, you know, it's not saying necessarily stop now or you stopped or you will stop or up to me sounds like stop now. Yeah. It does to me too. That's understood. But it's not, you know, technically, there's right? Yeah. But I mean, they're really pushing the boundaries of well, at least we know about human language is that you know, it is there are in all languages ways of expressing time. So they're trying to make an argument about there's something special about their way of writing that transcends that though feels like it would be way easier. I feel like when you're learning language. The hardest part is the tenses. Yeah. You have to change every word. You know, sorta I struggled with in high school Spanish for sure. Vocabulary. Yeah. Gubbio horse. There you go problem. It's not here. It's not later. It's not in the past. It's just a it's a horse. It's forever. Yeah. When was the hearse the hearse when was the horse working was the Hort? But was it drew Bajo Trump? Proba it's like alien body. You don't have to deal with this stuff. Is it a Honda? Oh, like, we don't know. Maybe it's currently working. Yeah. It's a horse has always been working, and we'll be working. Yeah. By the way. Do you like is it important to you? I know you don't speak a ton of languages, but I I was doing research for another podcast, and they were saying that it helps brain function and preserving brain memory to learn different languages. So I don't know. I've just been trying to Rosetta Stone or duo lingo or something would you recommend people? Learn Hebrew, just 'cause oh, absolutely. Or anything? I mean, if there's a language that you feel a particular like if you have a connection to mention Hebrew. I don't know if you have a connection to that culturally a lot of Jews in my family. So maybe maybe you want wanna travel there, or it's just a language that I don't know you want to read some texts than you want to go study the tour. I don't know. Yeah. It almost doesn't matter. What language you study? It's good for your. Yeah. It's good for your brain. Like before I was working on Kayla. I was studying Yucatan Maya, which is an indigenous language spoken in Mexico. And I think it really helps me learn Kayla because kind of loosens of the joints in your brain learning BUSTER. Yeah. Will you just think gosh, the verb doesn't have to go there? Or who knew who even knows what a word is. You know, these are languages that. Have really you build words. So yeah, I think it's good. I'm not a cognitive linguist or a developmental psychologist. But I can say yes, it is good. Yeah. No, other languages German. Yeah. I've been taking a Rosetta Stone on Ebonics lately. And I've just been learning a lot of cool hood vernacular lately. Oh, it's been really fun. Great. Let's say this podcast is lit right now. Oh, okay. That means it's good. Oh, it's so good. It's fire and also oh positive very positive of. Yeah. Yeah. I just don't understand. Yeah. Yeah. Both speaking of which let's do a quick game. I have this one is going to be really tough because I thought oh, maybe you just speak every language fan. I am always a disappointment. And that's I know it's our fault for thinking that it's the most common thing that people say me when you say, I'm a linguist. Oh, how many languages do you speak? You can just watch their face fall. Great. So you have a constant disappointment to this is a theme that's running through the far, my constant. So I play sax. And I would get the same look before I learned how to play the careless whisper so low the amount of people it'd be like, hey, do, you know, Kansas? We're going to be like now, they'd be like what what's wrong, we've been like, what do you know that like so I like had to learn that because so many people really careless whisper and Baker street those are the two they're like, please play those. All right. I'm actually upset. You didn't bring your saxophone. But let's take a break. So I can take some time to forgive you. And we'll be right back. Break is over. Here we go back to this. So the game I'm calling sweet translation. And it's because sweet. Okay. Honestly, I wish it was an Aerosmith based game. But unfortunately, can you switch that up. So it is real quick break. We'll be right back with them. That's good. Already. I'm going sweet translation because I have the I have translation for the word desert in five different languages. So there's no chance in hell that I'm going to pronounce these correctly. Maybe you can help. Yeah. That'd be great. So I'll I'll I'll just ask this more game for you. Usually the game is for the guest. And then our our our expert will will school them. But I feel like we have more of a chance going this way sense. No offense, you Jeremiah, Jeremiah feel free. Take all take it. Okay. Do you know the word for dessert in German? I do not German diesel. It's not Speiss. You wanna take stab at that? Knock space. Yes. Yes. Knoxville? Yes. Okay. Great. Thank you Donka. Yes. I mean, I don't I don't speak German. So I'm sure people's ears like fringing pronounced it. According to the orthography a full vocabulary. How we're talking. Okay. Dutch, you know, the word for deserting Dutch. It is sad. That sounds nice. I think it's taught J jet. Okay. Orthography? I'm right, Chad. Yup. The county. If you have a big Dutch of the conferences, we get. Okay. Turkish anybody know Turkish? Turkish or Turkish delight like from Nardi. Oh, yeah. That's my cessation with unsee, right? Tuck into the tuck to touch, touch, it's like t- AT L. And then I think that might be tuk Lee, totally touched. But again, it's only as good as their off of that. Right. That's right, and our alphabet, I guess because. Right. Aren't we like phonetically writing what they write or how does that work? Oh, gosh. That's complicated. Okay. Can I just say? Can I just say that I think, you know, I can speak with my colleague here that we are. Both very impressed with how much research went into this and very impressed. Don't be. It's minimal okay Portuguese Portuguese. They mentioned in the film Portuguese. Very cool. Teaching language. Joe love she mentioned. Yes. I also just will say that when it comes to languages. I like to hear sung Portuguese might be my favorite really Nova. Yeah. I mean, they've got a great so nice to hear. I don't even know anything that you're saying, and I'm just I'm in basically. So maybe for your comedy album. That's coming out there your comedy music album. You put it on Portuguese. Wow. We'd have to do a lot of rework. I mean, you have I could get a grad student on it. They need credit. They do think about it. Okay. Have a dissertation about your comedy record? You could be huge in Brazil could be huge among like for people who are into studying with that our demo. Doc after that sober, they miss so, but I miss I it seems like Spanish close they're very closely related language, the languages that looks like it means on top of the table or from. From the table. And that's where I want my desert. Yeah. Tell you what. Well, more like right here. My mouth more like because is in Subroto tasty and manage so. Yeah. Silber Mesa details. Yeah. Exactly. Okay. The last one Croatian quite soon, we both know Croatian. Yeah. I just don't want to show off. So I'm not gonna say, oh, that's really. Lieshan do not. It's not close remained. It is the answer. You're saying tuna. Missile. Okay. As I'm saying like an Italian person. But that's what it. Pinnochio his brother repet- day. Yeah. Anyways, guys, the the point of trying to make learn languages get off your s wake up and not you you can do whatever you want. But for us, we need you here. Well, we need you here. This is geared one hundred percent. Yup. Okay. So the. Bird in the cage. You guys know why they had that. You know, what I'm talking about where they're like there's like a bird in the cage the whole time there in the alien craft to hip to pod craft. I have I guess you wanna go ahead though. Okay. So just from me being a horror film fan. This is just me just to do sing entirely. But I think that in a lot of things just as well as like the movie bird box. They featured a bird and that later was also dogs and movies. There's animals have a sense of the like almost like a sixth sense that they can sense when danger or something like bad is about to happen. And I felt like that was like the reasoning behind the bird I could be completely off. But it'd be part of it. I felt like that was part of it. Yeah. I think they were kind of looking at like and also they also brought it up there for oxygen purposes to see if a bird could just survive because. Yes, that's probably the main reason. But I like to think that you know, they've got some special in a abilities that we don't have. That's why I keep animals around me to make sure like if they're freaking out. I should. Be free. Good dogs breathing high. We're we're. Seems calm. Well, I'm I'm with you. I think it was probably like canary in the coal mine too. If they could breathe, but you know, maybe it was a comfort animal. Dogs or cats. But maybe you need to burn canary in a coal mine canary in a cage, miner's canary. That's all I I didn't know about this phrase until like a year or two ago when a friend told me that I'm his Canarian coal mine, which I thought was really cool. But anyways. Yeah, they've been doing it for centuries minors to make sure that you know, the atmosphere safe. So I thought that was really cool. Would you ever have a bird though, I could never imagine having a pet bird? Knowingly. If I had a Condor service animal, that's the only. Yeah. That's that's pretty tough. Yeah. I mean, those are my only I'm I'm a high-stakes guy. So. Do you guys have bets? I don't I'm allergic to many pets on teeny house. So I had a ton of turtles growing up. I don't currently have a turtle. Maybe if I have a house someday, I will get a turtle, and I just said turtle a lot of times. And maybe I'll have a dog someday. We'll see we'll see we'll keep you guys pets. Go on the run too much. I can't neglect and tickets with you, and your C goes, no, Stu there, two turtles are frigging high maintenance, they're very seems like a go along with you though, guys match. Throwing shade. With the interesting man, silver, both getting in our. We'll all be equally shit on by the okay? I wanted to ask you just like language questions that came up in my thing, then feel free to chime in is there if people do want to learn a language where how should they approach it? Like, what's the easiest language to get into? Because I've heard you know, you don't wanna just like jump into Chinese or Japanese or or should we? Well again. I just think if you're interested in it that makes it easier in any case. But what language is going to be easiest for you depends on language you speak. So back to your Portuguese example, you know, that's pretty close English. You know, if you start looking at all the world's languages in terms of how it's grammar works. It sounds so you know, maybe you want to start with something that's close to English Portuguese or Spanish or German. And so for instance, if you look at I don't know if you guys are familiar with the whole code talker thing and World War Two talker. This is the second most popular thing that people ask you, and you're linguists. Oh, hey, man. Have you seen that that movie, code talkers or wind talkers? Yes, I've seen it. Basically during World War Two the US government, use Navajo speakers to help develop codes that the Germans and the Japanese could not crack right Navajo is very different than English. And for a while it was working on a patchy which is very close to Navajo, and it's very hard. So if you want to start with an easier language European language is probably. Easier or oranges another language. It sounds very good in music for him. Yes. That's true. French language. So maybe we'll start there. Okay. Well, completely translate your record. Have you heard of an artist named yell e s I like yell. Okay. Quick shot up to yell French dance music. Thank you. Okay. So are there are there like really wild languages? That's another thing that came out for me like things that are just like written kind of crazy or just the most difficult. Yeah. Oh, go ahead. I have a quite well, I've a question to go along with that like how like certain African languages have clicked and stuff like that. How is that like written down or what is like the symbolism for clicks? Because that's such a specific guttural like throat noise. It is. Yeah. That's a great question. So there I should have brought this is a visual aid. You know that I'll describe it for your listeners. Okay. There's this thing called the IP, the international phonetic alphabet, and basic, basically a bunch of linguists got together and decided to, you know, alphabet are so varied so imperfect, and, you know, people do their best or some people don't do their best when making them up, and you have these systems that don't really represent how the languages spoken, and so they came up with this. For writing all of the world's languages and clicks. I think five different clicks. It's been awhile since I've looked at my in grad school, we had to memorize every sound of the world's languages. But yeah, there's a way of writing them. And there's different kinds of clicks. According to where they're made in the mouth. There is the first part of that question. They have you did whatever you were like, even the just whatever you're just going over like that chart. Did they did you ever professor that would go through like that would make the noises to be like this is what it sounds like? And like, this is how you write it. I'm sure that's kind of difficult to take in it was difficult. Yeah. In fact, I'm being retraumatize right now just talking about it. Thanks as part of the. Yeah. No. I'm just kidding. It, you know, my first year of grad school, which is really stressful. But yeah, you take this class called phonetics. So linguistics is divided into these different sort of sub fields and phonetics has to do with the way that we produce and hear sounds, and generally they will have you listened to a recording. Because English-speakers my my professor was an English speaker. It's harder for us to produce some sounds. I mean, I'm sure you all experienced this. You know, like the rolled aren't Spanish. That's I have trouble with when it's in the middle of a word about you. Yeah. Yeah. That it wasn't in the middle of the word. Like, I trouble. I'm not going to do it on her pitcher. It will make you. Yeah. Oh, yeah. I'm really I feel such a victim. A little more. I I think you are like, for instance, the language that I work on has objective consonants and has nasal vowels. So the difference between well, this is my favorite example, an I. Well, I'll just go and say it the difference between the word for tooth and the word for penis is way versus way where versus. Yeah. Transpose though. Yeah. So wait, it was a little more names on so it's like a different vowel together. But yeah to get back to the phonetics question when we had our tests. So we would learn all the symbols and your final was meeting one on one with professor, and he'd be like okay by labial bricketted go and you'd be like. To produce. These sounds in isolation. Many of them are very hard to produce. And it was also hard to remember. Yeah. I'm glad I don't have topsoil intrigued because so I I'm like a pretty good mimic. Like, I do a lot of impressions and stuff. So I feel like I should be using that more for learning languages and stuff like that. Because I have a knack for being able to hear something. And then replicate it pretty quickly that will serve you. Well, yeah. Although there's also a difficulty with that. I feel like, you know, that's one thing that I can do pretty well. And then people think you're a better speaker than you are, you know, so speaking. Yeah. But it will make things easier for you interesting. I haven't also a few little problems with the moving. So and you guys can weigh in and tell me if I'm stupid or not number one. I thought it was a little bit strange. How the narrator switched like halfway literally like halfway in the movie, and it's only like once I think it's the whole time. It's like Louise doing like vio enough the whole time, but she has some vio look at the beginning and stuff and then Ian searched to veto. And I was like, oh, like, I know that it's him and all this is relevant information. But why switch and it was like a little maybe to like show that he's more important like it to the story than we thought which is true because he becomes like her husband and stuff. But I just thought that was weird. And like threw me offers second. And then the soldiers those guys who ultimately put a bomb in the spacecraft. They're like just in their bunker, openly watching this like Alex Jones type radical right wing. Thing video and just like laying there and listening to it and nobody gives a shit. And so I didn't know like I don't know if that's allowed in the military or like because it seems like a like a hazard or something, right? I have no idea when I was watching this and thinking, oh, no, I'm enough to be the expert. I was wishing there could be someone here who is in the military or could talk about that. Because talk about secret societies or worlds that we don't have access. There are some things that there's a two things that for me. I had small issues with the first one was just the sea foreseen in general. Okay. Because if the hep to pods, no time. Okay. Oh, good call. They want known. They would've known come. And that it was coming and also like. I just like why would they diffult? Why wouldn't they diffuse it before? Then or something right? Like what up a city because by that point? Aren't they? Little bit airs a bomb. I guess you could argue be dangerous today to misinterpret them saying, right, right? Like, I don't know danger in room, right? That the one which is kind of a big one was when she got. I don't know what his position is leadership is I forget which character. He she got his phone at the very end. I was like this is a kind of big hole. He just likes Mars like storytelling. He left on a desk. Like, the one of the biggest times of crisis. Like that. For me. I was like if I'm gonna get into biggie. But I I'm very good about like, well, you know, is is stressed or. I'm good. I'm good about like being like the benefit of the doubt to the beer. But those things for me like on like if I'm being critical those for may stuck out. Yeah. Mentioned your horror fan. You know, now in contemporary horror movies, you really have to pay attention to the phone like, how do you get that out of the picture right here? It was almost like the reverse like, this guy doesn't have a screen code is just going to let you know. Also. Yeah. Yeah. It's like top military guys turn on his phone use there. Yeah. That's pretty messed up. So also in that in that bomb scene. They it's not that they were in there and the bomb was in there. They go back. So like they were going to blow it up when he was empty, and they decide like she says like, oh, wait, I want to ask them one more thing. And I thought that was ridiculous that moment because it's like, they're they know they only have a certain amount of time where the thing opens and closes every day. Right. That's like part of theory of the I dunno. So how could she leave? And then be like, oh, actually, a let me give me five more minutes. And they're telling you like, no can't go back up there, which makes sense and Ian like a come on. She it's five minutes. One question. Okay, fine. Yeah. They go back up. That's insane to hop guy. Let it do it do a hot guy, and I'm gonna Vanja let. All right guy. You got it. I'll shoot her up there with my bow. You don't sit back up takes five minutes to even get up there. Yeah. That's crazy. Building slippage that was that that seemed to me like really, I don't know a little because the whole movie is so good. It really really enjoy the film and little things that I thought were super silly. Okay. So here's one and this is a big one for me, the aliens a don't reveal that they can write language until she like unlocks it for them. There's twelve of them throughout the world. None of them are communicating like this. And they only do it when she like writes a thing and brings it to their face. And they're like, oh, I might as well put glad you ask. Now that you mention it. We can do that. Yeah. Yeah. That was pretty frustrating. And then also thinking about how they only waited till the last moment to give the technology, right? The tool the weapon they're talking about the whole time. It's only until she like waits until the last second to ask. Hey what what's the whole deal here? What's the technology? You've been talking about wha-. Why? And then it's like, oh, all right. We'll give it to you. Because everything's about to be over. Yeah. Why not start with that? Yeah. Give everybody the the answer. I think there's a little a hero. Scientists thing in here that rankled a little bit for me. I mean, the good thing is that it gets to be a female scientists most of the time there is this part where the, Ian is that his name character jumps in. And he's like, you know, he's not he's like, well, what about the open space? Let's plot. It, you know. And so there's a little bit of due to the rescue genius. Not so much. Yeah. Because one of twelve and it was like, oh, we don't actually need the other pieces. Right. It was. Yeah. I have to review it was like that, you know. So it was just like what would we have done without him? But I mean, again, I guess for the narrative structure, but yes, she was the one linguist where all of this was resting on her. They would've highlight, you know, silos filled with each had a team that was mentioned. But it was also mentioned like without her. We're like everybody whoever's second places like way underneath. Yeah. Which is cool. I mean, again, I do like the heroic Amy Adams. Yes. I think you're about as well. Thank you. Thank you. Decide. Well, you're wrong about that. But it's pretty cool. Okay. The coolest shove effect. I don't know if I'm saying that right? You know, what this is? You know, what this is cool. She'll couldn't show fan. I'm so glad you step down. Taras? You'll see you know, what I want you to actually just read the meaning in your Russian accent? It'll be more fun. Go this show effect, if film editing effect demonstrated by Soviet filmmaker live Galicia in nineteen thousand nine hundred twenty s it is a mental phenomenon by which viewers drive more meaning from the interaction of two sequential shots than from a single shalt in isolation. Right. So in the beginning of the film. She is we see the flashbacks what we think are flashbacks but flash forwards I should say, and we see her daughter getting this disease and dying and then we see her walking into her classroom. And we think like, oh, she's grieving, and she you know, and that is the collision of effect. That's us placing meaning because of sequence of shots instead of what would be just her walking in because these things haven't happened yet. And so we would have just seen that as a normal up. She's just walking into work and everything's fine. But it's just a really cool effect that happens because we we place meaning onto it. I hadn't noticed that. That's really that's. Really interesting, especially if the movie's trying to make a point about time, it's sort of performing its own argument. Like, the medium is the message, you know, these things don't necessarily go in order, right? One thing that I was just curious about in general about the film is are they saying though, that the way that time works it's only forward though or lateral. Like, she couldn't go back. Do you know what I'm saying? Because what made me think about like if she figured out this big thing with time. Why couldn't she go the other way with it where she might have been able to catch her daughter's illness a little bit sooner or something though, something that she she did say at one point that it's unstoppable getting the can't do disease, which I think is important. But but I don't remember any flashbacks. I don't remember anything that came to be yet. It's all yeah. Like liking of her like her future, baby. And like all that stuff, which by the way. Thank God that Chinese general told her exact, right? What you needed to say? Trust me. Yeah. Like say. It's my number. Here's my phone. This is what you dialed. You know thought that was clutch. Okay. So they also mentioned and and then we'll wrap this up the non zero sum game. Do you guys? Had you heard about that? You know, what that means zero-sum? Yes. Yeah. Just the idea that in competition, or when you're dividing resources that only one person can win and saying you see that used a lot when people are talking. Well, at least in my profession people talk about it in terms of other people's academic success to criticize them oh. So and so thinks that this is zero sum game where only one person can be the fancy professor or well received academically. No, actually, we can all this isn't as Eero some game. It's like that. Probably very similar subculture. Yes. Yes. So Dr Aaron Devonport people can buy your book. Yeah. On Amazon fixing the books fixing the books. The name of the book. It's yeah. Exactly. Secrecy literacy and perfectibility in indigenous New Mexico. Thank you. Yeah. Of course. And they can take your class. Yes. Come to UCLA taken out the policy class. Great. Okay. Awesome. Jeremiah, you have your podcast. Of course. You're my wonders. Yeah. Jeremiah waters, follow me on social media at Jeremiah stand up across the board.

You give me a see. That's good that's good. That's fine and the funny thing I they see my Jimmy. They're like we knew you could do. Your works not be lazy when you go to school like there is is more upset that fact that like I can do so of course now go back to Morehouse Mike on Dean's list until graduate. But it was really my junior year where it was just a real rough period. Junior began in my last year And just know this whole much turmoil. In my life and everywhere looked bad things are happening Just couldn't focus a lot. Always felt like there was like this heavy burden on my back just not buried just like a brick on my bag in his way me down all the time and And I was like confused because I'm like you know where I wanNA be right back in Atlanta back at morehouse. You know working at the aquarium The Mike this is as you know this is what I wanted. So did you still feel like a little incomplete. Yeah I don't know I couldn't even explain. It just felt like something was off something which is often are. I couldn't tell you what it was but anything like nothing was really going how I wanted to go mostly just drained and all that is so. I removed this one particular day. I'm just like really just add me and McGrath had to split up at the time and so I'm just like in my room. I was going to ask. How did you guys maintain that relationship why you would hear there? It was at a long distance relationship or digital. You broke up on win because of course she didn't think I didn't come back at that point. It's just like right. I know I know I couldn't even get mad at her for wanted to that kind of move on. Because I'm just I got you know out. Of course it was mad right in a selfish way because you said you had a girlfriend was like she's a writer she go watch you go from here. I remember she was so mad because she was like. You didn't like you made it look like you were doing your work in the world you food as and all this stuff like what are you doing and what were you not done. But that's there but you know so I've just read one dollars. His crying and retirement thing just finally decided this had breakers which have never really diving before at Harvard. Making problem with the Church twice okay. College career down there mostly because it was the girlfriend baby go the time or friends were just like. Oh It's eastern assault so dead so I prayed it says I pray like I remember just things I just felt bad. I you know I feel like literally feel weights like coming up off me. Yes I'm pregnant print on prem. Then our call my dad and I'm just a yellow I feel blah. He's like I knew you're gonNA call me Detail talking the news. I think you're just you're supposed to you know you're supposed to preach in as he said that had just remember like like. Wow how it happened. It was like okay. Well you know then. It was like confirmation but So at that point Mike Conley early junior so I was able to change my major from bile to religion You know from their graduated still was never sure about it. Yeah uh-huh on because like I said I'm not I'm not like I'm not your typical preacher there's a lot of like Folks like a lot of guys who preaches now who. I grew up when it'd be prejudiced. Yeah Yeah never me like you know everyone run around quoting scripture and all that s not me so it was always needed. You're needing eight in his time. Oh Yeah and always say I was credit for this because he. He's in what may really come to. I said God and call you to be me Call you to be some other creature got called you for who you are you. Michael Waldman the third. They have to be yourself and you have to accept the call and be comfortable with yourself and I think when he told me that that was like another door. Gotcha hoping for me. That allowed me to say that I could still be you know who I am. I don't have to change too much out. Of course a little white after de but it was just it was just really good for me and it allows me you to just be who I am. The date lousy. We'd be come from home skin because you know when they are. Parents never pushed me to this. You know they're both creatures. They'd never pushed me. They've always allowed me to be myself anything ever done. They supported me whether being a vet or a preacher. They're always you know we're behind us long as you know. You were veterinarian preacher so oh down in the future so I will bring my pet. See Your Business going. So let's let's make the lead on. We're GONNA fast forward a little bit So you you prayed. Your father gave you the confirmation as well like the weight was lifted. So let's fashion a little bit so you are now the youth pastor youth and young adults per year let's we got to put that So side that's my boy. That's my bet you are now the youth and young adult passer. CBC So you speaking of kind of your father saying you know he didn't call garden call you to be me Oh you are you an liberty whenever we speak whenever we talked to you. You're bringing your own flavor. You are your upbringing your own flavor because we I mean we've heard you preach we've come in spoken to you many me of times and usually like what I would like she saw Alexis introduced me to as easy 'cause she was me here Before we like before we started dating and She will say. Should you come to church and we should come through my living on my really. I'm like I bet. Whatever like less less CDs and I it's like four hours like the beautiful flowers s S.? She's like now is is quick on my cool whatever salty food cook enough You know once we start going to praise worship that can go. Hello but it's all good though So I come in. I'm like man and like the first time I heard past the MITES. We go do. I need to be here then. A AH pass them. I go to celebrate like really we hadn't met you bet. Yeah you had just came in. We were somewhere we had did something and we met at Five Event Bible. Yes but that was that I don't came. We had just come pro. Yeah I came up. I literally drove up. Less Day of June is our work until July like Middle July. Okay up here but you yes. So they said that at you they had when they had announced that. Your your dad had a known that you were coming. We weren't starts Saturday though they was like. Oh past past China's coming in trying to come in I was like I don't know the fact is the year out and then The first time the first one we heard you preach. We were actually as we have something to do that Sunday so we watch online. You'll do who actually preach heard you pretend we was like okay. I'm a hitter when I hear a word I really am so I was hitting him the whole. She was literally slapping neighbor three times pretty very much so it was at the time it was You talk about the fruit flies. Yeah Yeah Yeah we had remember. Are you saying that event and it was due a Leech was saying this is Fran so I already word. So who sleep okay. This is his strong associated so he was a Leech and he was leaching on him and I was like there's something about him. I can't explain what he was. And then when you said something about the fruit flies took me out. I was like I was hitting him like. Oh wait a assume five. I got that from a movie man. Really me rhapsody. Actually some are so. I saw that movie today came out. I couldn't wait for here. Did you enjoy it of course of course when you talk to them my dad. He called me. That was that was appropriate green. As like I was like I knew the music but you know I didn't really background act like. Oh this is. This is where William was very so when when we did did he you preach the first one the first preaching person and you were talking about. He's talking to us. Yeah because usually when you go to church like you I would say the younger crowd fizzle alienated because usually the the crowd is older. Comes older so when you got it then he started talking about. y'All he's speaking to our and we were having to convert. It seemed like you were having a converse right. Does your dad does the same thing. But as it's the way he does It's different because we're in the same age group. We know that the stuff that we go through is personal. It's it's very similar. But I feel like millennials go through stuff that is like created through this fantasy world social media and Yeah Yeah Yeah we live on in a time where it is imaging as what you put out there for people to see his death and you don't want people to see see the real you ever 'cause you're free that that that real you might not get accepted and we all hate rejections so I think the misconception option of preachers is that we have it altogether and half the time I'm up I'm really preaching you know for myself Because it's it's so different when you can here it herself and then you see you can have someone come up to you and say that really like needed. There are some that that you know that helps me because I needed here too is different. What I'm going through some things in you know I got like I remember saying it's it's hard when you actually have to literally have to practice what you preach definitely definitely it means so much more? Watch me now. That I'm actually a pastor and just sometimes it's getting up there in preaching. I'm nervous every time sweaty palms every time. I love it but so you know you gotta do it. One is supposed to my dad to get up there and preach this Sunday. Something feel free but then you gotta remember. It's just it's not about you up there. It's more about somebody in here may not be. Everybody might not be neat to hear but somebody in the room definitely needs a word from God semi needs to hear what but you have to say thrown in his vouches being that you know for me. That's extremely scary. That you know people might make some decisions based off. Something that comes out of a lot of the people are taking you know people are hearing the word of God through you and people for a moment not to put his bad where you are speaking as God to the People Um it's very terrifying on the semi think about it like that so it it. It's it's hard is tough but for me like I try to see Miami time. I preach I try to use my own examples. I try to use things I've been through because I know I'm not the only one who's been through especially in our age group. Yeah I'm trying to put myself in in the story. I'm to try to put myself in the Scripture and try to you know using all the things I hear I see on social media in this kind of combine it all especially for our age group as the younger. You've passed there when I get up there speaking in that group more else. That's heavenly influence. Definitely this mostly young adult driven chart to the well so yeah not a speak that out. So that's all that goes into it. When you know you get up there you have to go preach but like I said it's it's more getting getting I know for me? Preaching is about learning that it's not about me Because when I go up there I'm always thinking about myself with how they do. Outlook are my speak in Ra. I'm very confident you know. I think my parents always told me it's not about chewed bell. which you gotta say what's coming out your mouth and how God is using? You gotTa Trust I how God is using you then mowing and so that that helps still nervous from the first time that I saw you preach it comes over as has if you are talking to yourself because it's like I said it's more of a conversation like you'll start off. You started off with the story about yourself and it was just like you know how you you think about something that you went through. And you're like Dang. How did I actually get through that in a bit? You start speaking when you're speaking to other people telling them you're starting you realize how how much God has blessed you and you can tell anger story in the in the sermon that you spoke to us that day you can tell you talk to your seven like day make. No that's a fact it got to the fact like like I said like we said like keeping keeping your own group in preaching which we very much appreciate you also have A. I guess you would call today. A roundtable of sorts you have the state of the culture coach is which are for one one told me about it. I'll say oh no after. She sent that email. We're going to. So what exactly got you to Patchwork. No no I definitely want to hear what. How did you develop state? How did you develop culture? Yeah so when I came here I was was tasked with you. Know kind of developing helping develop youth department more kind of jump. Starting the young adults could cause coming up here you know. I knew there was a lot of young adults rather rather than Dole church hours working on rather than that church She's nervous no no no. Oh coming up here Rather my ultra ultra than having a young adults. It's hard to do anything with young adults down there rather than you know the youth but come appear on Mike not not yet. They don't do too much right. Why not so then you know take deep look into a you know? There's not about a consistent program program that was being done so that's what I'm trying to bring here instead. The culture originally I was asked passed in my own sake. What do you think about a young? Bob said he was like no. It's not gonNA happen because you know we do. Bow Studying but good amount of young adult already coming apple study so you know then that is turned me trying to develop something else am one of the things I always notice from. People were from this coming to church. Is You know you come to church with as as a regular person. You're getting talked to a lot. Yes yes the asa talking to you sang saying to buy the praise team You come on stage you can talk to Spear Formation Ewing talked to so I just wanted to develop something where the a young adults come in and they control the conversation. Where as leader Just sit back and facilitate We thought that said that when we got on this one I was like he didn't even say nothing. And that's what it was. I think it's only been two so far but that one that we just had was really I really. Yeah Yeah great question. Yeah I love it you know the first one. We talked about spirituality versus religion on this one. You know we call. The NETFLIX and chill is about relationships. I am I guess I've really the first one was Kinda like that But the this one. We're kind of really embody where I wanted to be would actually wanted to be got a meatiest this throwing out questions there. You'll stuff that we have in you all just really taking it and running with which I loved and the back and forth twenty like I with jumping all right. We gotta go to this but after I would say the question you all were just you know go for it. Go you take off hours very happy with commend commend. You for doing something Creating state of the kosher because for us I think as young adults in the church China recruit other young adults to do something can be kind of hard. And if you tell them that it's a place that it's a safe haven where we go and we have conversations about not only about God but we have conversations about things that we deal with on a day and knowing that it's the safe-space nobody is at at the thing that I really appreciate. Seattle was no judgment judgment. Because you know we've been to like situation it was just like I and nine hour so you wrong and it wasn't like that also so I was very clear about when I opened. I said these house rules. You're going to respect this judgment free zone with Happens in here stays in here by hand you know. I'm very serious about if I if I felt somebody wasn't do our estimate leave. Yeah because I don't want one person making the whole room feeling uncomfortable uncomfortable. Yeah everybody should be on the same page all just sharing our different opinions than like you saw so many like we have one question. There's so many different opinions on one question so oh especially the last what. We're talking about relationships relationships dealing with the Bible so there's always so when you yeah it was it was. I was very pleased with that turnout. I do have a question for you. Go Go to one of the questions. From the State of Anna's Netflix and chill so one of the questions was what's the difference between talking situation ships and courting slash dating. I actually want to get your take on it so this was one of the ones I really actually wanted to say so. I'm thinking about absolutely going so I always I was born in Texas. Okay so I I always hear about courting wording and how that is in like you said like it doesn't really the word doesn't even exist in the south so the courting thing even there I I just want to add. I did it but I just wanted to clarify what I meant by courting. Gotcha 'cause I know some You had one version of Corden. There was somebody else's version. Great but I think what I really really want hit on that. It's just the loss of cording and where we've gone to now. That's where I really want to hit on what did like I said I let you take. I was trying to get them. And there's just a loss of according now and you know I I've been participant participant in this to you. Don't have the the I've done it of course but you don't have a consistent scent of You know the court the courtship of it and you see it in the movies you say chivalry right. It's not there no more guys on the it's on the girls too because the guys are going to do with the girls allow if you allow that that you know you want as may do something that you know you tell them to step it up and then is going to happen. But there's no courting episodes anymore you meet a girl get a number nowadays. You wish it instagram. That's going to. Dm You later when we Lincoln up when we Chilin won't be and that that is it a lot of situations will get started right now and it's like so great in the middle and then and then you go from the now you've had the physical aspect to it within sex or yeah now it becomes like well. You're not my boy for you not my girlfriend but you know we're we're here now right so it's just like in that moment. I don't know if a lot of people you know. Make the distinction kyw will. We're going from situations ship to now girlfriend because not to make general you see situations ships to parenthood. Yeah and it's just it just like now our ask like I see so many like single moms and Their baby and I see a lot of just like guys going with dealing with baby moms. I'm just like how. How do you not like this person like that? You never get to know this person can just it just makes you think about who you choose. You gotta be careful well who you choose the situations and if you are wrapping it up because that's the big that's a big deal to. We always like whenever people meet us and somebody we always like. It's not very like people always want to know. How did we meet and not? I told I tell the story well but I'm gonNA tell it now. I want to talk about that. But it's whenever we will talk. I would tell people you know 'cause we kept our relationship kind of just under wraps not even as you should. You should keep its province long. We didn't we didn't tell. FM Like we dated for like a year before everybody. I Ah you know people will always take you being secretive as being like. Oh you don't want to know is some things aren't meant for. Every we wanted the foundation to protect that energy when win when we would meet people like I don't even remember the last time but I told people I asked her to be my girlfriend A few months and I waited maybe three or four months. I verbally asked us at. You know things should be my girlfriend. You want to be my girlfriend and I I believe in that You know 'cause something that should still be. I agree and it's like you know we hit those situations is worth like we should never have the conversation of what are we. You know what I appreciate it because I had never been asked to be just kind of like you know we got to the Okay we've been dating for some time at my house. I'm talking to you data. So what is this like. Well we don't want to. That's like a I've been in a situation to perform not per you'll have but you know then you do all this and then you can still hit them with like. Oh well you not migrants you. You know it's power. You're doing all this or you don't met my parents. It really is missed ghosting. Somebody new who saw that we saw a video. It was this. There's video going around her this girl and they have a show where they set the people up. That was ghost by somebody. So this guy he was talking wreck list she was like well. You came a you told me we cut. He like I was drunk. I remember none of it. I see none of it. I hear nothing falls policy was like what do you mean we were here. We were here. I was laying in bed next to him. Like Oh my God I I will cut his throat and into the really grimy. I hear you gotta be careful. You got protected. It's a fad time. You gotta I think one of the big things that you've got to be clear about. Get your intentions like straight up. You had to be clear about it boy or girl you need to be clear like if you try and what are you. What are you trying to trying right now? Because if you don't make clear that's also lead to a situation ship. I said there's no courting in like I said you don't core then you just get into this situation with the person that you really don't know you just hanging around right having sex and the next thing you know you have a baby in now you know you. Just come from a boy's perspective you've now you're gonNA people going to be looking at you like are you gonNa marry her right now. You might not even know if you really liked that girl but you got a baby so some decisions have me. Yeah I think that loss of courting takes away from that really knowing a person aspect. WHO's at that US? Somebody somebody somebody wrote here is like I kinda like that. I want to say the whole conversation. We had There was always a the continue continue thought of the conversation of the lack of communication and everything it's so big All right so I'm learning still. Do you feel like you weren't affected community. I know I wasn't I think a huge thing the Mitch. I don't know I'm no problem. I told I think not going to specific Year to go me and my I try to work things out and I was like I was one of the things I was very intense. It's about communicating. 'cause I know from eighteen to like twenty five twenty six and communicating well. And it's something you have to grow realize about yourself that you know when you're young. You WanNa blame everything on somebody else at some point you have to look at yourself in the mirror and say like what what did I do or what did I do in this situation right. They costly go right out of one of the things I was bad. It was just communication education in general right. Now I try to anytime I do something or do go on a date or some crappy very clear about you know what you get him. What's going on and you know? Then you gotta be honest with you said. Are you ready to even be in a relationship. A lot of people don't want to get a lot of people don't like being lonely a lot don't like and it's people need places the space and it's getting cold I I'm not paired right now and the laughing but you'll get a cold avocado okay. Old Old and North Carolina. Like I just came from cold here just to in this course I knew this but it's been like ten years really experienced it winter so what. I'm looking at now realized long sleeve shirts because cold North Carolina. I can wear short sleeved shirt. Heating my office after that He. I'm just saying I've got this. This is so you'll people you know it's getting cold. You want to cuddle up with some hot cocoa so people out here. That didn't I have no house this to say I'd get back together weather a Yo. Hey Miss you baby the phones think about you all so I think I explained that to my dad. He really didn't understand coming so I said well you're commit understand. It still has coming. I do find that like I've I'm so happy that you have Something stated Kosher because yeah I just feel like so much gets lost in translation age group. And it's it's like like you said everything's so so image based and it's about it's kind of people don't really go off of what they think all the time it's like they. They think after what they heard from Ooh so let me tell you go right ahead. Christianity right yes in. That's I know that's what my dad is big on. He's big on his breaking down like bad theology that was uh-huh and also that's eventually what I want to get to say the culture being able to have these conversations where I can say if we could if I really wanted to talk about relationships and we've got to. We didn't really hit on the Bible in relation. It's like really could get that far or so like the timing for everything else is just so that would have been a shock to subscriptions. It's it's hard because people especially with the BOB relationship. He would like to hear that the Bible might not be right they golfing tell my mom that there's one girl there's a lot of contradictions you see it. People really like even if it would help them people tell you that the Bible may be wrong about some really mess up your spirit but you gotta get broken down to get back some point. He talked about in a couple of Sundays. You got to me crazy about the grapes. In the way I'd say I ain't even got Jose I was like being crush on could be in a new body. He's it was quite an all. You hear that was you but yeah I was just like I can't even event. He's really big on China counter. Like what's been said because we would have a lot has been said it is not correct. It's hurting a lot of people. Definitely that's why you see. Such a drop in. Attendance is in churches. There's no people don't want to be challenged and bad theology. You're not trying to change. And you only preaching it. A lot of people are preaching bad theology because they heard it from somewhere else they. They told her that. This was the right way to do this. And so now you still preaching this continuation of algae and now. You're hurting people. Because now you're preaching you're preaching out of context. You're preaching Chink about something that doesn't even exist now preaching in a time that Stuff was written. That doesn't apply to now. Yeah so you know. It's about route. Think Christianity has to it's evolved in it's going to have to continue to evolve is going to be up to a neo pastors current passage To be in charge of that because people are out here hurt your love. That hurt is come from the Bible and from the church in we we are followers of Christ. Were Christians in. I think my dad says all time we pay too much attention to what people say about teases and said what Jesus was actually doing right there. You Go and if we we can get back to the basics of that then we could really start to be better. Christians honestly sell to you definitely. We definitely don't continues in. Twenty five minutes is funny because of like this. You got baptized in July July about size. Okay let me tell you about the baptism insulate. 'cause he told him I was like. Oh you should get back. I was saying it and he was like no. I don't know about that season. I I kept telling her not yet. She she don't like the words not yet. That is not true not yet you came volunteer. I understand that but anyway I kind of force people out there but anyway so I was like no. You should give up. We were like standing. It was like I. It was the first so we stand that he whispers it back there. I was like what am I supposed to do. Not Supposed to cry and so we went and he did it and then I it was just like Oh my God. So the his baptism. I'm a documentary like I videotape everything. She gets everything so he was like putting on his clothes to go and I was just like Oh my daddy on his bat size so walked into the door watch them walk across the street and you could see me in a photo cheese and like my mom on while excited while Oh my God but it was. I was like he was like. How would you know that you want to get baptized? I said you just don't feel it's going to be something that APP pulls you in that direction to me. And that's what a lot of people like especially with this religion like Your experiences not going to be everybody besides hundred percent you got no way issue I experienced God is not gonna be your excuse me nor went to do something to fill the son of the same people try to force their own experience on another area. This religion gets a little messed up because everybody's experiences is their own experience. You have to talk to somebody and try to force your way way on somebody else's it's not right because that might not be their way might have another path for them and now you're trying to put them on another path that doesn't match what you go. It's it's our after I've got bad ties I mean of course that's just further my journey. I always been a believer but this is the first time since I was really young but I found the church I wanted to be in. You know like I felt like I belong to you. Just feel you. We used to have to resolve. You just feel it You just not alright energy. It's home I'm home. You know what I'm saying. Yeah so It was I I would have conversations with people and they will always say. Oh you gotta try something like Tanaka. CBC Whatever and then like you know because it's like people to to judgy. And I might but but you heard it from somebody else. You didn't do. They're going to say because I show you how to say good morning in the mirror. Speak to me and I also think about how you go to church because I come from a Baptist church where you know. The services is for a while among my grandfather was in the job. I think it depends on what your I was always taught that. So you go onto the church which are attention. If you're going to get the word are you going to receive something or have an open mind then. Instead of who am singing to notarize Chang Zhang give me no program. You know if you go in with the focus of. I'm trying to receive something from what this place is is pulling in to me. I think that changes the perspective. I think people kind of get away from the fact that I'm coming to receive something here. Not that I'm coming so everybody can see my outfit. So they can see my hair which people a lot of people come remembered Easter Sunday back in the day. Oh it's like at people. We must have hats. Listen people for hatless. Fashion shows back it today in the thing waiting for me and so that's definitely about how you're talking about keeping income continual coach because you know it will continue to evolve with once our age ranges in everything changes Mentioned earlier Chi. Wow so we we got. We got about twenty minutes left so we have a nice little little some about this. That's so now how do you how do you because you said you said overrated which I respect. There's not a lot of people actually speak out. Uh that calmly about it because usually when you mentioned and people get angry. So how do you feel about Kenya. In his moves like the mega churches and things of that nature because he's been radical his radical Way of visas. AAA SOULS RADIC. Because he's been Michael Todd And then he was also in Queens. Where We add we. We we know people over there at the document. He's he's been making his round but he's made his round just at the forum. Recently Michael Todd so how how do you feel about him. Participating with like megachurches in in different passes for a lot of megachurches. I just WanNa see what was the benefit of leading. Connie that you go in your shirt. I don't see that is a benefit if you really feel like for his personal thing. That's that's great. Yeah that's you. That's what we say what. I'm just confused about as if you are Christian and you do believe in Jesus beliefs that you know. He's supposed to let everybody treat every by others. Must be treated human gonNA love. You can't do things like support Donald Trump and you know that that shows contradictory for me And so then when you get to that and now you're a black man supporting having someone who's clearly racist Sexism Homophobia that is so you do all that and now you try to bring Christ into it and which is once again for him in his personal relationship that his great nothing what is just like. I'm not a fan of it because you are highlighting the Christianity that has hurt people On the has not been beneficial in. It's kind of a personally say a wrong version. Christianity like I think a lot of Christianity in the past been used be trying to be controlling agree. You know people try to prohibit other people people want to keep him on a certain state of mind. Ah I feel like that's kind of where he's with his Christian. He's on that side of it right now. I could be wrong. But that's just me personally Like I said Christianity spokesman Gal loving everybody in treating everybody How they should be treated how you would like to be treated? And there's just so many thoughts about that but I just like attachment megachurches at this. I don't WANNA sound bad but I see a lot churches just see conway as an opportunity. Yeah Yeah we can get Kinda in here you know we get membership up for. Maybe that day they come here. They'll see our church in it. At the end of the day is a business move. Yeah that's what I feel about it and it's not really like business with GNARLIEST. Jesus move right I haven't listened to the album of her is actually really nice. I've heard it's no good and bad things about it. Yeah everybody has yeah. Yeah so I'm I'm not a fan of the whole respect Will Become Sec. I don't I I don't predict I don't really don't i. I'm is this. We've had this conversation. It's like me being a county fan from jump. Yeah it's like you end up. I'm having that debate with yourself. Like damn can I separate the artists from his style and that come into candidate fan too I do like and so when you look at him. Look at all these doing all. He's saying in like the black people. What is the slavery choice Eh Okay so let me just say that. My roommate actually Shutout some Eagle Matthews work for serious and she met Kiei long eight like when he first started. He's not willing articulating himselves. So if you listen to a lot of interviews. He'll not to talk he owned to say what well he got to say at all. If you say I'm GonNa Cross the bridge it's like man. This is a this building structure is this. They got the water over. Because because you know what's going to be rushing wave that meant what he said the problem. Has he come out and try to counter. No I'm GonNa tell you what I think human I do who think he should have kept his mouth shut. Yes they're just saying supposed to talk to someone wanted them. They need to be in the back. Right hold inside as much because I love him. I agree like What I think he meant and but he just doesn't know how to say was in theory? Yeah there are more of us than than the yeah theory but saying that it was a choice is just ignorant bad. That's very yeah that's GONNA did. They had used Christianity in such a way Dole astound. Yeah where people would be like. Oh I always has the white man's religion by about nodal. They kinda made their own. They they they. Did things take certain verses out give us like bibles that only had certain things. Yeah You know I hate that. It's the white nationalist. Why are you doing that? And it's not really not really not started. You know overseas like in the Middle East and you know it's not With they've done with it is different story But what they don't like I said why would they been Jesus anyways different than what Jesus was. Yeah so I I started going back to the Roman Empire. You Know Institute soon the Christianity as state religion and so it goes back to their in creating the Bible and you know putting putting books in the Bible that they only wanted to be in the Bible excluding Brian other books. Because when you get down to Jesus wasn't trying to like promote religion 'cause Jesus was Hebrew and all that good stuff So he wasn't trying he was trying to promote how you get yanked people the phone. Yeah he was talking to poor people. Tell them that they were important. Yeah feel 'cause they weren't occur telling rich people they shouldn't be on their horses so much That they should be carrying about other and now that we all are connected they all are connected like we say we'd be human yet. Yeah rich or poor when you die. You're going into believing right. Ground like the same as me ground. Maybe up there on the hill. But guess what it's there's still right right the cage it's like I am and so yeah with like mice just Kinda I just. I said I've listened. More may give it a try but I just feel like he's just lost right now and you know the hunt for something to try to find some stability now. He's grabbed onto this Christianity. And I don't know if it's GonNa stabilize him what he thinks that make it worse for him he has yet. He's he's a creative so like but he's one of those really brash like he's dressed. He's very drastic. He'd how from not like in hot water got it too. I like very cold water. Well even if you target would see him talking to tell her he didn't like what she's wearing actually had that conversation. We had that conversation. She sat another miscommunication door from we. We just spoke about hospital. I was just saying like was it. I felt like a lot of people was like all. Oh she dismissing him. She's dismissed a ham but I also felt like from a woman's perspective. You GotTA issue do not come to me on the day of my event. Talk to me about some stuff. We could've talked about. It helps keep seventy two hours ago. That's something I don't think they should've came out like right. That's a house. Get up to go closer right no you AH. That's something that should be been in the house you don't you don't believe that Because she was so high exile. She had an event that she had to do. It was the wrong time for him to have that conversation. I grew and it also was. She was not ready to receive that so even if he was coming from the perspective like Babe. I just wanted to change how we renew ring at this point. A whatever it when the time you ain't about the talk to me and I got to go do this. Event the baby boy. You have to sit down like when When we we spoke about it I said I can? I can see both sides but I hate playing devil's advocate so one choose one right like I'm always. What can we say like my thing is? I would have an issue. If Kanye didn't build her up even more. Yes is to be what she gave you like. She already had the popularity you put on this unrealistic pedestal of her. Being like my girls in movies my girl is the sexiest thing ever like. You put her in and say he did something that radio could never do that. VIDEO IS GONNA disappear but can you put her music. There's GonNa live forever. People are always going to reference. Tim Sample him like they're always going to hear something about what she's so you can't like you can't be mad at how you found somebody milt them up in there but you know what as you can't force a kid who the biggest thing is that you can't force to change change you'd have this sporadic uil you know radical Religious Change. And you expect me just hop on your bandwagon. I'm GonNa beat our which you but I ain't GonNa be hanging you know. That's where she is with them but she's not like okay. Do you support you. Have my full support. I don't know for Kenya. I just accept the person like I do believe that he is very law he was he is still trying to find himself. And I can as a person that believes that people Just go through evolutions of life. We're trying to find themselves elves and in his particular case for me he just begin drag because he talked too much and he does extra ever ever since the Taylor swift moment like slowly in terms of his popularity. Yes so I feel like by him being dragged him not really understanding what this means he really is trying to. I feel like he's GonNa find himself in the midst of that. I don't think that I'm listen to your album because I just want to hear what you got to say. Does that mean that I follow every all of your regular rix now. Does that mean I believe in what you believe in now you you got to go to heaven for yourself by yourself. You can't get you there and you definitely angle give me north. The WHO am I to judge. Tell you that you know You Doing Gospel Music. You really feel so yeah for real. You're going to hell because you decide to do music lifestyle if you. I told him last night. I said if Kenya's plan a game was done in the dark with truly come to light because you regardless of that is proof it's so many donald trump what was done in a dark came to the light. So it's like if he's playing us it's going to come out and he's going to be crucified by black. Black people are going to be ready. I don't think he's GonNa. I think I agree with you on the east trying to find himself and he's trying to find some stability but I just don't know if this is going to help him like he think album it can be right. Could you could make things much worse for him because of what he's grabbing on and because there is there is a Christianity there are so many sides to it you know they're still that you have SC BC type of you know we like to say we follow the carpenter but then you have that sat Christianity that people are still very just mental homophobic. Yeah we'll do very Just ahead people. There are bad Christians. Yeah absolutely right Sereda right right and you know they. They take that Bible than they even if they pick and choose what they wanNA using that Bible. Have you ever seen the game the television show but I never never got into it honestly. I don't go past season four episode for now but Tasha Mack. Who is the MOM on there? She had uh-huh Regina King from C. Render. We're Kale rather see had won the Bible. She had blacked out the parts that didn't run wrote a plateau her life and the girl was like. How am I supposed to read this Bible? All of the majority of the language is blackout. She said because they didn't apply to my lifestyle couldn't read it. That's how I feel like people being people really do that like they. They don't like it. They ignore it but use his books in the book. You better read. You know if you're going to use everything else judge mental you're spewing hate and like all this stuff I'm just like oh like look brother come on come on. This is twenty. Nineteen that'd be twenty twenty like like come on we got okay is almost here. This year's been so fascinating like just like January I was living in north. Carolina would not appear. But now I'm here so this has been years had a transitional year. It's been such a crazy beautiful so we got a few minutes left and I so we always like to leave whenever we have guests who like them to leave with inspiration given So I do have a final question for you so you being the son of such a prominent figure in the community and now you kind of coming into your own. What would you? What advice would you give to somebody? WHO's trying to find their own voice in the midst of coming under someone quote Unquote Chassis? Visited me right I got you yourself. it's so simple but yet so hard at the same time People are not comfortable with themselves. We don't like judgment we don't like people say bad things about some people can't even take compliments Israel and when I I know for me personally I just have to be myself. I can't can't try to be a father. I can't try to be my mother. I I gotta be myself because that Sue God chose Naturally believe in walking in your own path because your path is specifically for you. That's right you can't wake up in say just because this person you're idolizing this person because of what they have. They looks like they have. You can't try to hop on their path because they might not even be being treated themselves they might ask and even if you tried hop on somebody else's pauvres on their path they probably some things some some obstacles that they had to get through to do where they are and you might not be built for those obstacles but you may be built for stuff on your pass hassle. You have to just trust in God and just fall along. Just believe that guy's never gonNA lead you straight but being yourself. I think it's just you can't hear it enough but you know you still a simple as it sounds you still have people struggling with that like yeah not as young but older people and you have them just hiding behind this mass that they've put on because because they think they need to be this thing that people want to see that people want to agree with me. I don't trust in themselves in that distant. I think that's such basic vice. They can help a lot of people. Just trusting in who you are entrusting in yourself and just always trusted in God and following where God wants you to go because God's Never GonNa an elite Jewish trae like I know me personally. Coming up here was just was big scary. Move for me. I wasn't sure about it at a proud even like you know when I got up here wasn't sure about it but you know as things progress in things before I'm seeing you know pieces falling into place that this was indeed a good move for me as long as I continue to be myself and not I try to go outside of that. Try to step out of my lane. I'm thinking I'm going to be fine but like I said you know doing say the culture we got some other things coming up but I think the state of the Last one really just really may my spirit happy We definitely waiting for the next one. It may my spirit happy but it was. It was very very good and I I think you know it. Just it was like a confirmation like okay. This is something good. That's coming out of this move that you did so I think just being true to yourself in just always trust in got it is just some of the best things that you can just believe in love the word so I tell people where they can find you. Yeah Yeah so let let us know we we let her find you and if you have anything coming to church I vote eight o'clock service Tim. forty-five talkative tip. Forty five on Sundays. I'm on social media.

From Chicago To Oaxaca

"Hey. This is lily. I'm talking often northwest suburbs of Illinois, one hour per Chicago. I live here with my family and here's where I've been spending the pandemic so far. I'm out to the House Right now, my dad's gardening ripping up the grass while his youtube music is playing from the phone in his pocket. He has his favorite baseball hat on it has an image of a horse in the front and the hair of the horses yarn. So it blows when the wind hits it. He actually just got off the phone with GRANDPA, who's quarantined with my grandma and Chicago. He's quiet and he signed a lot. It's a way that I can tell that he's kind of worried. I've never really known him to express his worry. My Dad emigrated in the seventies from Oaxaca Mexico, which is where all my family's from. There from fifty by US up Deka indigenous, community of five thousand residents we call it Pueblo. My GRANDPA I came to the US in the forties as I said on. The Oh program was a lieber that brought millions of Mexican workers to your arms. He made multiple trips between Mexico and California so he could send money to his family. The second family member to head North was my uncle was in the sixties. Your tunnel as we call him made several trips to California where a young Francisco my dad followed him to work. Once they realized how far the dollar went in Oaxaca they returned to Pueblo and convinced the rest of my family including my very stubborn grandma to make the journey across the border. Down had heard there are a lot more jobs in Chicago, and so my dad deals and grandparent's headed to the windy city in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, four, and on a cold day they set a. Nobody. Had Jackets and it was below freezing. My Dad he actually still has Jean Jacket that he wore that day is skinny thin and is also worn out elbows. And it was a pretty horrible experience. They were all like, why are we here? Kennel died suddenly at the age of thirty five because of health complications after a lifetime of drinking. It was an event that devastated my family for almost forty years. We didn't lose anyone else. I mean look. GRANDMA GRANDPA a pair of the ninety three and ninety five year olds. The pandemic brought with a heaviness, a threat that I recognize like everyone else. I just never thought it would impact my family the way that it did. From who through media, it's Latino USA I'm ready aim to. Today another side of the pandemic. We go deep into an indigenous Mexican community as a separate family from Chicago and Oaxaca Battles cove it. To Me Lily Rees is an incredibly special human being. I've known her for several years I. Met her first when she was my student at Depaul then she became my teachers assist and and then earlier this year she moved to New York City to come and work if full Doodo. Media. But then the pandemic happen and lily picked up in the middle of it and drove back to Chicago to be close to her family. Lilley was escaping the then epicenter of the pandemic but little did she know that the pandemic would follow her and her family all the way to Chicago and then Oaxaca? With the help of recorded check INS and phone and video calls lily is going to take us through her family's fight to survive this pandemic, and also how they found hope in the wake of irreparable loss. Lily is going to pick up. The. Story. From. Here. It's the middle of May and we're in my house in Chicago. My Mom Maria is in the kitchen cutting a pieces of fruit to make our morning are smoothies. My Dad is pacing around in one of the bedrooms. He's practicing a dickel in language spoken by about four thousand people in me he go.

Nah Francisco lease started becoming Greece negating on interested in these stay as you don deny chicano noise. That's my dad in the video saying hi and introducing himself as the son of Ben Coming. My GRANDPA's nickname Pueblo. My Dad was there in early March at the beginning of the pandemic in the US unsal that most people either didn't know about the virus or had just heard rumors about it. So he decided to try and help fill that gap. He's never done an explainer video. Loves talking and he loves youtube. Sunda. Sent. For starting the Day Cool when I asked him why he decided to do it ends up with a goal and that Spanish he said, well, there's a lot of older people Pueblo who don't speak Spanish. and is true while you're generations are learning, Spanish and English sabatical many other indigenous languages is often only spoken by our elders and assist appearing was. My Dad post explainer video and instantly. Views and they're climbing every single hour is pretty cool to see that people might be getting the message. My family on both sides of the border has been able to stay safe during the pandemic. Then June arrives. My Amalia. My Dad's older sister and her husband the Assam. Would both in their late sixties have been admitted into the hospital in new lenox about forty miles southwest of downtown Chicago. My parents in cooped up in my bedroom looking at a laptop screen, which is quickly filling with almost a dozen family members faces talk about my deals condition. Okay. Five. Okay everyone's on the call except for my grandparents, they still don't know about the hospitalizations.

That's an acquittal. My deal encourages us to get some perspective. In Cleveland. I'm Beatles. He says, if my deals were back in a liquid. They'd probably be dead by now. Fathers as here, and so we caught the amount in the hospital. He's been stable for the last couple of days. After. Zena. Bothering. Every time we speak to mill he checks on us. He insists on knowing how we're doing even though he's the one who's fighting the virus. At some point, our entire family lived in a brownstone in Chicago and when we heard my uncle sharp whistle, we knew he was home. He used to be a boxer exceeds all rolled up. But over time he became softer. His gentleness is still there. We also call my GRANDPA to congratulate him gay village terminals, Calvin did impoverish. Dust. Amazon so much. That Papa means. The Mustang. Sally. GonNa Star. We've been thinking and planning on how to tell them about my deals is hospitalization but today is just not the day. They've been asking about them over and over again they know something's up. Leah, is undoubtedly my grandma's favorite daughter they talk almost every day am ideal tells her that she's from women. But my grandma's wondering why she hasn't called. I'm so close to my family. And let me Chicago, for New York for a job opportunity back in January was not an easy decision. My grandparents made it easier by giving me their blessing before I left. They were surprised for we're like, are you gonNa make more money when you're over there and I was like, yeah. So they were like all right then. Then they gave me the sign of the Cross and kissed me. On the same day Fathers Day, we calm down me. For Fogel. For further. You. GotTa. You the. The. Suspension.

She has this quiet commanding presence that will make you feel loved while she points at your flaws the same time. She's the Best Cook. To my parents and I stopped by our house, she would turn scraps into a feast. When do we to my grandparents? That was the main question looming over us every single day.

Find the answers to those questions. Eleven by. An APP. Away. Peacefully To complications. With the criminal virus. We can keep postponing telling my grandparents. My Dad. My mom and I drove to the house at the center of Chicago to tell them in person. By the time I got to the neighborhood. My GRANDPA had just gotten off the phone with my cousins they had broken in new SAM. And he had already told my grandma. They received the news calmly. But other than any one of US expected. My GRANDPA cried. But grandma just sat there STOIC. Like one of those native American statues and indigenous woman were her three thousand around her head. Just STOIC. Silent Not Yours. I was like man, of course. They've lost four toddlers. And one, thirty, five year old son. down. There in the pandemic. DIV injured many losses from people who they knew and family members from will. They know what losses? Much better than any of us holding news of my Theo's hospitalizations. Before she passed. My Grandma told my prima. She didn't want cremation. My grandparents echoed her choice. They are adamant. No Cremation? For. Catholics. Out of respect to our indigenous roots and the traditions of Pueblo, we were against cremation. We know we have a new goal to get my deals back toward Pueblo just as my day Malia wanted. And just as my grandparents wanted. The biggest problem repatriating the bodies. It's we've never done before. Are. We actually going to make this happen. Especially after reading. So many things in the news articles about other Mexican, families not being able to bring home their loved ones we wanted basically do the impossible. The first place we went to was the funeral home. And when we told the funeral director look. This is what we want to do. And the thing that comes out of her mouth is. It's impossible can do it. At that point, we feel like we fail my grandparents were nagging us and they were asking what are they going back? When are you going to buy your tickets yet? When is this going to happen? So we end up doing is calling the Mexican consulate. We obtained the name of an official who was in the position to help us right away. And we asked him is this possible? Can we do this? Both of them he said. We were guess both my aunt, my uncle passed away. We want to take them back to the web which is possible. He's like, yeah, it's possible. Wow. Okay. Let's start the process. and. We have to get a lot of people. Work permits from the US permits from Mexico this so much time this suck about. Two Months And we barely barely got the approval from Oaxaca. Our home state by the way. We were able to cover a lot of the costs thankfully, but the process itself and the waiting itself was grueling taxing emotionally thinking about the US. Just there. Waiting. Waiting together.

That's another episode number ten. My last favorite thing for the year which is true is everydollar the everydollar APP man. When I had so many life transitions from moving and baby like we had so many things going on and everydollar was like the the consistency in our life of keeping control of everything? It seriously. It saved us. I'm obsessed with every I really like when we were making those this list with my team. I even text win singles Winston.

There's a lot of things out there so I'm out the maternity leave like as I said but I have my favorite things email that I will send out so if you want to keep up with all my favorite things on a monthly basis. Make sure to sign up for those emails in and the show notes. Okay I wanted to go into my facebook group and I wanted to know your favorite thing. So here's a couple of things that you guys recommended and I loved these ideas because they save you some serious money waning Kelly. I'm facebook said cookie butter trader.

So it's basically like cheaper versions of Vino and Sarah instead of Phil at a fraction of the price. So there's all all these amazing products but super expensive which I love Cindy said dollar stores. La's totally awesome all purpose cleaner so basically is like clean. Think but it's a dollar after dollar tree so totally awesome. Why not I'll try it out and one of my my other favorite things of course? Is this show you guys an. What's so fun about? The podcast is that some of you haven't heard all of the ritual cruise show episodes that were the video version. So I'M GONNA throw it all the way back to the first episode of Rachel Cruze show because there were so many great segments on their one of them was a couple Ryan Internet our family of five and they cut back their spending to save more money and I just love their stories. I want you to hear that and then also some quick ways for you save money because again save money one of my favorite things so take a listen your money journey you guys. Would you say like right now. In the present you guys are a pretty good spots that yes has. It always been like this no like what wasn't that you were like being have to stop. This was there like this huge each fight this meltdown. Where you like going bankrupt? Well you know when we first got married living in L. A.. And it was paycheck to paycheck. There was not much leftover at the end of the month. And we didn't really have any sort of budgeting going on. We kinda just went with whatever we thought. We weren't really talking about anything really. Oh you're debt starts to add up without really realizing how much I think it just got to a point where we're expecting a third and we're thinking about the future more And wanting to set yourselves up for success with all of that for you guys that was well it was probably about a year and a half when we got into the House and I think at that point. I kind kind of got to the place where I was just done with. Not Knowing anything about money and we weren't really talking about it. I mean I think you know that's the thing is we never fought about money. 'cause we never talked about money so as a woman. Would you say that that made you like fearful insecure that you had no idea what was going on like what caused you to present to that never fearful but avoiding the subject a little bit you know I wouldn't I would go out and and just is to get things that I believed I needed and that I probably knew he wouldn't think okay. Yeah there's I mean there's been things like that yeah. I knew that that we needed to get somewhere where we were on the same page at that. Point is when I started to try to budget for the first time and I was on every dollar for a little bit when I had had all of the stuff in this budgeting tool all of our separate credit cards and all the extra stuff I realized how big are really was you know and I think that. What was the point where we had been hearing about Financial Peace Church and I said to Ron? We need to. We need to do this as soon as possible so she brings. What do you thank our was on board? I mean you know it was the kind of thing Going back that I was handling a lot of the larger bills and things and so she wasn't really in the know of that But I wasn't really in the know of what she was purchasing. And that sort of stuff every day needs everyday like school supplies or things like that. I mean it just sets a time aside every week that we just go and we learn and start learning how to use the tools and how to communicate better and I just knew if as soon as we took that step step we're we're gonNA benefit from it so I'm going to ask you because I haven't I don't WanNa see page. There's one category in the budget that almost everyone including including the cruises if any category. It's a category so if you had one budget category but you were bus. What would it be groceries groceries? Yes yes so you feel like you got like progress on that part of the budget. We have actually started for the first time doing doing the envelope system for groceries and knowing beforehand we are able to plan a little bit better and like Dave always says. You're feeling you know I just. I think we spent probably over one hundred dollars less than what we did the the month before all those little little trips to the store that you don't think adding up that end up just adding so forty dollars here sixty dollars there and oh I need to go get this one something for this one meal that we weren't planning on making stop but the storm quick for this or this or this but being able to plan ahead of time. So you guys now you I would say that you know because you are working on the same page in your community about money you find that your marriage is even better today absolutely percent inishke so it's definitely help us communicate better. Not just you know budgeting and that sort of thing but in other areas of our marriage as well so we're talking about all those things now and that has changed just the trust between us and all of that I think they made a huge difference. Marriage been to voice their younger have. They noticed any shift or have you guys like worked with them at all. Like what's what's their take on all this absolutely Elliott or seven year old He's definitely caught on. He's got the ITCH now. He's definitely overheard US and asking questions. And that sort of thing which is great. We've also got the chart l. from junior and so I love that idea to words. Not Really a chore. It's a commission allowance commission not allow. I love that If you don't do the work you don't get paid out a lot more help in this house. He's yeah he's saving up for his own little. Say whatever whatever it is at the time that he's saving four I believe at this point. It's gum balls for his machine. So yeah we'll be like once a budget and I'm like like well buddy. Let me tell you right. Here's exactly when you guys are like absolutely killing it. You're doing it so fantastic seriously. Seriously I could have lived in that monotonous state that you guys were a year and a half ago and that for decades right and that's a lot of people do but like sitting here and saying you know what we're going to be intentional. It's is GONNA be hard. It's not fun as you look at all the debt and like it almost feels like this mountain. But as you're chipping away your I can see in your faces and like you're seeing the hope and the excitement of what that's going to be we like and for those boys being able to have that legacy of you know being debt free and not only that but having parents actually talk about money and communicate and are on the same in page. I mean. That's such a huge gift. So you guys are awesome. I always love hearing from couples and how they work together with their money. And the fact that they are a family lia five you guys and they are absolutely filling it all right of next fifteen ways for you to save money quickly number one look into an exercise is past program through your health insurance provider rather than just paying for the gem when I did this and had saved us so much money number two or forgo the gym up together and go to YouTube.

February 2020 - Woven Geometric Shapes, Erin Barrett

"Hi everyone and welcome to the crafters podcast today. We're revisiting a podcast. Recording with Aaron Barrett the weaver behind son woven who has worked with us to produce two workshops to share two very special techniques That she's designed and developed over her years as a weaver last November. We launched a premium workshop in large scale tapestry weaving and we worked with a local San Diego Carpenter to build these really cool. Forty eight by forty eight inch floor looms that allowed you to make just gigantic pieces of work. Large-scale oversized pieces of work. We of course asked her if she would also film with us a workshop for a monthly membership community and she built a geometric weaving workshop with that in mind in this particular workshop. Where weaving geometric shapes as. We're actually working quite a bit with the tapestry needle in these this beautiful color way. That though is inspired by Aaron that she chose for this workshop. Were using the same Bibiana loom? So it's a it's not a PICCIONE LIMITS. A weaving loom but we used it for a piccione workshop. It's a sturdy frame loom. It's maple. It's an crafted By the same wonderful folks who do our large scale forty eight by forty eight inch looms. These are maple. We've designed them to have very inset grooved notches for your work so you're warp street doesn't go anywhere we have optional leagues with this particular loom which is pretty cool because it turns it into a table top loom for those that That would prefer to weave in that fashion so this workshop at that's coming out in February it includes all of those components. It's just a really when you think about When you break down each of those seven different Wool blend Skeins a gorgeous loom that gold. Lemay that ribbon that Aaron is so known for WARP string Tapestry needle the tools that you need to execute a weaving just a really really cool workshop and super honored to have built it with Aaron.

Let's dive right into our conversation with Aaron. Hi Ann. How's it going today High Morgan? It's great how are you so good? It's really nice to chat with you into dive back into this project. Super excited for our upcoming workshops together. Let's start out at wait. Just a quick intro. Tell us who you are where to find you all that good stuff. Now while my name is Aaron Barrett and I am the Creator and owner Son Woven and I create handwoven textiles. Mostly woven wall hangings out of my home studio in Charleston South Carolina. I have An online shop at Sun Woven Studio Dot com where you can shop All of my tapestries. We do a lot of Made to order or we put new things in the shop Yeah and I've been doing this or five years now. I started in two thousand fourteen and my business has grown every year. A little bit a little bit more. I've been pursuing. Us An artist were years. I was so happy when it finally worked up this year. Heck yeah this was wonderful timing if we go back in time a little bit and back to when you first started weaving and creating Tell us a little bit of what that creative journey looked like for you. The BEGINNING WAY WAY BACK. I actually used to be a professional ballet dancer. Um So I think you know I've always had this sort of artistic and creative output. You know being able to do something that I loved and express myself for so long and then in two thousand in two thousand and ten I got married and had my daughter the following year so I wasn't dancing professionally anymore and I started teaching and I and I loved teaching Valet. It was wonderful and being a new mom and it was great but I you know after a couple of years I kind of forward to get back into creating something myself and being able to express myself again and not feeling just SORTA got stronger and stronger and one day I just was searching around on Pinterest or online or and somehow came across a tutorial for making your own woven wall hangings and I was like. Oh this'll be fine. Give me something to do and work with colors and textures and it just sort of immediately took I loved it and it was. It was a way for me to stay at home with my daughter and sort of create an started out as I wasn't. I had no intentions of selling anything that I was making. It kind of started out as friends warning them and family wanting them and then. I thought well maybe I maybe I could do this and make create a living for myself doing something that I really enjoy doing. That allows me to express myself. Creatively managed sort of fake open an antique shop. And it just sort of took off from there if you think about the style that you've curated over time because I would definitely say you have a signature. Look in feel that you're being well known for you have a few you have some. That are more shape driven and some that are leaving work. Ganic and roving. Based how has that evolved? I would say it definitely started out when I was first learning and and I making the weavings. I didn't really work with roaming all maybe a little bit. I I kind of kept it. I enjoy doing a more geometric shapes and I think that was a good way for me to get learning. You have to do a lot of trial and error and figuring out learning you know not to pull too tight here and pull tight enough here and kind of a lot of math. When you're doing geometric shapes like that makes you making sure everything runs off so I think that was how it really is started and then I would say maybe like over the next year or so. I started to experiment more with adding in different materials. I remember doing right some beads and then adding in ribbon and trying to kind of figure out my voice you know once. I decided that this is what I wanted to do and was going to try to you know really sell them and and make a career out of it you know. I started kind of dialing in trying to figure it figure out what it was. I wanted to say and what my work looked like. And then I remember the first piece I made. I had I got some really pretty blue roving and I thought you know like well. Is that a planning this Adam. Just Kinda of go and see what happens. And sort of create this organic slowing you know pattern or shape more than a very geometric tightly woven piece and Once I did I was like. Wow this is this is what I really. This is great. I I feel like I found my voice but I also continued to like to finish geometric and I felt like why don't I just offer both? Sometimes you take your weavings off the sort of well off loom of course but but kind of that traditional you know hanging wall tapestry. And you've turned them into pillows In jacket in the back of the Jean Jacket. What what inspired you to get you just really creative in the application of meetings after a while I noticed baton once my brand was really growing and I wanted to experiment more. With what else we could do. And kind of ticket to another level The jacket sort of happened on accident. I remember my mom was visiting and I was like. Oh my gosh I have this great idea wonder if we could somehow put a weeding on the back of a jacket and it took a lot of trends figure it out in my mom. So Sweden awesome. You know. She's like very creative and she can. So let me see if I can make this weaving and cut it off and you can. So when on the back and shirtlessly did it and I posted a photo to my instagram account of very rough I try and people loved it and and I loved it. I thought this would be a great way to kind of combine two different worlds here of being able like a wearable art. You know In the pillows started in as Trying to know reach different clients and customers and I feel like the wall hangings do have tend to be a little bit more of a Bohemian Sort of you know vibe is definitely something let's not new. It's been around for ages but It definitely has like I think a certain look to it and so for those customers would be central customers who may be didn't WANNA wall hanging. I thought well maybe I could take what I do and turn it into something else in. That's fair we started doing your pillows. We definitely did reach new customers. Once we started doing. Not How your bags are? Are you brag yes the back so good San Woven the name? Where did the name from while my daughter's name is sunny and it Saudi funny because when I was pregnant? She's now she's almost eight. My husband had decided very early on that he wanted to name her sunny and I was just kind of like no. I WANNA like this name. This name. This name and we could never agree. In the moment she was born I was like she is a sunny and she is just like full of life. Life and sunshine and positively should just the sweetest and so when I started my brand What I wanted to I wanted to put my energy into and put out there. You know what color was like the biggest inspiration and I felt so happy when I was leaving and I wanted my wings to hanging homes and bring people joy when they looked at them and I thought you know sunny and son woven and ages all went very perfectly together. Newsham funny about kids may have. We might three daughters. We we by husband and I were kind of you know debating back and forth on their names and we always name them like in the hospital at the last minute and even when you're not I wasn't a hundred percent sure but I felt the confidence that it was a good one and then years later. You're like Yep there that name and your couldn't go back percent. The hot they left the live up to their name. They definitely now. I love that all right so the next question is a little bit selfish because I I love your design aesthetic. Your home is beautiful. Or how has that sort of your design curation and obviously that in place so well into your and the aesthetic of your your are in your wall weavings as well that you're featured in a magazine tell us a little bit about how you use bill your home and how you wrote it over time. It's funny I feel like I kind of started to businesses at once in a way but I when you were when I first started weaving may wear Living in a smaller house and like we talked about earlier before the podcast. To as the business was growing I had more and more loons more more supplies and I was running out of space. Some and I knew I didn't want to rent rent a studio space to work. I liked working from home and I like being able. I was pregnant again this time. So this was two thousand in Fourteen yes when I had started two dozen fifteen ish and I knew that I wanted to keep doing this and working from home and my husband also have works from home. He's a musician and he needed a little bit more space. So we kind of we're on the hunt looking for a house that could accommodate our family life and our work life and sort of view it as a kind of a work home life compound in a way and we found this. House that we're now in it needed a lot of work and a Lotta love but I I. This would be a good opportunity for us So we got this house and moves in and I was very pregnant at that time but I kept the business going and we did renovation and throughout that process I realized how much I also loved design and putting together spaces and homes and I feel like a to definitely go hand in hand. You know so much of what I'm making with the with the wall hangings as they are a piece of art that they I style them. You know in photo shoots and in my own home and think about what would I want to purchase? You know to bring into my home and like I said earlier you know bringing in joy and comfort and happiness and everything that you're bringing into your house how how can I reflect that through what I making So I do feel like the two kind of went hand in hand and I just really enjoyed putting the house together by think. Maybe because we spend so much time here since we both work from home and Live here with our kids. You know we've made worked really hard to make it a really special place for us and we feel really really blessed. It's been wonderful. Is it your forever home? Do you think I would like to think so? He having all of this space to work and have the kids. I think it will be our forever home while we still have young kids in the House I think if it were for our kids were grown and gone. It's a Lotta House for just two people. It's a lot of work you know. Is We have to keep up with our studios faces you know. I mean I have a full two rooms. That are just my work area. And he has workspace so it is great. But it's kind of Dr Dey's round Lincoln's too much lot the HDTV article as the one that comes to mind. But I think you did something with Dwell magazine as well. Was that more on your studio or was that all off. Yeah the first big feature that we had. I was contacted by better homes and gardens. Not was I think in two thousand and sixteen and they just loved the idea of both of us kind of like living and working out of the space and wanted to do a feature and I thought that was really fun and I do think that the house is unique. You know it's in the ways of secondary seventies style ranch And has a lot of open space and it. It's just that it is a variant inviting and welcoming home and we. We love that in like kind of how much opens up into the outdoors and sort of very indoor outdoor which I think is nice but Yesterday contacted us and they wanted to kind of do a feature on my studio along with the rest of the house and the kids and so that was really exciting and then from there. We'd we've done a few more online apartment therapy and dwell glitter guide. Also do the same thing just sort of home tours night. Taking a look. It's interesting we've done so many but the house kind of is constantly changing So I always feel every time every time we do one. They're they're different on. Yeah but then we did. Hdtv last year so awesome will such a neat way to kind of to share your work in your art because art extend past you know just one style of making for sure. Just a beautiful. I love love. Love seeing updates and anyone who's following along you guys have to go check out Instagram said right now. And and scroll through because you do a great job of styling your home with your pieces and it's so organic how you kind of flow between a post of a weaving and then opposed to a weaving in your living room or of your kitchen or a bedroom space or something like that. I love it so much. Thank you I think to a big part of habits. You go hand in hand. Is You know when we were working on the house so I wanted to be intentional about what we brought in in that things were you know had meaning brought us joy and that were important and when I making something. That's so from my heart and and handmade. I want it to be something. That people are proud to hang in their homes and like I said make them happy and really help kind of tied in create Solta minute. Living space in your home is where you live and you should. I feel my happiest when I'm at home so I think that it's it's important. It may just be you know something that you're hanging on your wall but it can mean a lot and I hope what I do. Meet lots of people so because it means so much to me. Tell us what had to buckled day. Looks like for Aaron. Okay very exciting and also not exciting at the same time but we get up in the morning and you know as I mentioned. My husband is sometimes. He's on tour sometimes. He's home so when he's home life worse a lot smoother and when he's away right now he's home so we get up in the morning and get the kids up and get ready. We dropped my daughter off for school first and then we have about an hour and a half before Bowie. My son goes to preschool. So during that time we usually take turns working out. We have Palatine bike which we love. So we'll take turns doing it. Quick Class at home and then Get to school and then I get a studio ride around ten o'clock and I'm in there working from about ten to every day one thirty or two an emmy go pick by from preschool. Come home have a little bit more time with him and then go pick up my daughter from school. Any kind of continue on with the You know while the dinner best bedtime homework routine goes on forever get everyone ready in bed and then I usually go back to work In the evenings probably around eight or eight thirty and all our work again so maybe ten thirty or eleven anal and at that time it looks a little bit different than the daytime weaving time during the daytime. I'm in the studio and it's sunny and I'm you know really listening to music or podcasts. Really really working. And then my nighttime leaving is more sort of agendas on the SOFA watching the office and working on working on smaller pieces if you were to think about kind of the breakdown of the time that you spend on your business that is dedicated to actually creating and making with your hands versus all of the other things. What does that look like? He you know I feel like I've gotten pretty good at multitasking After five years of doing it all myself I do have help with some of the stuff on my site and you know kind of the everyday business but the majority of it is music like I will get in the car line to pick my daughter from school and I'll have my stuff and I'll do a lot of emailing then you know kind of carve out that time but I think in being in the doing something creative. I have to make sure if I'm sitting down to weave and really work that I have no distractions. I don't have my phone and I'm not trying to email doing that. You know set time aside to really focus on what I'm doing so and I'm not saying I it's some days I feel like I. It's it's a lot you know. I do find that if I really set the time aside to work. And we've in that way and not have my own around and really do on the night can then. I can manage things better. Your really separating the two created yeah yeah absolutely is there like sometimes at night. I'll do the computer stuff at night. Just because I'm feeling a little less inspired and I'm a little more tired and you know after the day. That's a better time for me to do that. And then in the mornings and now the sun is out in the studio and I feel energized. Then that's the best time for me to to create. There was a really cool book a while back in. About how you kind of have to find your time of the day because we like. It was a very narrow anonymous time that is we have like two hours a day of like super put productivity time where you really have to prevent any distractions from because those are the two hours while we might work so many more than two hours. Those are the two hours where we just are on fire and our Batas like ready to go and we're just in the zone Some people are more nights Miller five. Am's you're three in the afternoon. Yeah I love that and and I've noticed to have days even where I'm more productive and I can be on a roll you know and having my husband around is nice because I can be like. I'm really like getting a lot of work done on this. I'm really feeling you go pick up the kids and then vice versa. He'll be like. Hey I'm you know I'm in the middle of this and I don't WanNA stop but Gotcha. I know the feeling you know so. That's nice you just kind of I mean it's a little tricky working from home in that way but if you can like you said recognize when you're feeling not pay attention to it do it. You can to nurture that that definitely helped is your studio space in your in your home home or with you kind of separated out where it's like moms working right now closing the door. It is in my home home and there's not even a door I actually took the door down. it's kind of like off of the kitchen is. I like having the kids come in and be a part of it and if you also my home but it the way I have it set up in the way that it sort of decorated is completely different from the rest of the house so if feels like a different space to me when I come in and I do try to be intentional you know in the mornings like you know working out and then showering and getting dressed and then getting my coffee in going into the studio so that way I really. It's not just sort of like Blah Blah Blah going into here in. I really do feel like I'm going into work. But it's but it is in my house. Yeah now does that make sense? They're older now so I can be like. Hey I need a little space. Can you guys go in this room or you know? Don't touch this. Don't touch that. It was a little bit trickier when they were younger. For sure it all. It all works out okay. You love to be in it like I used to from my Home Office ally and just being able to hear my kids. Neither made me so happy and then other times. You're like Oh man. I just wish I could glock myself in a cave right now while high is near. I will say this is the first year 'cause I was. I've always had kids while done this business. This is the first year I feel kind of a little bit more freedom. You know now that he my son who's four is in preschool for half of the day like there's that set amount of or and a half hours that is just mine that has made such a difference and it was hard. I get asked a lot like how do you do it? How do you do it for a while it was? I think if I had kept up what I was doing the first three or four years I would have reached burn out mode very quickly because it was mostly working at night just sort of working pockets while could but now I have a little more freedom and now it's the easiest spend and I'm really happy with how things are now and I still feel like you know that he comes home and so with the kids in the afternoon and dinner and all that and so. It's it's nice when you think about preventing burn out mode. What are the necessary things that you need to do to make sure it doesn't happen? I have hired how I started hiring help. Maybe two years ago mostly because I we do wholesale work through West Elm so there's a lot of orders there Along with orders through my own site and I felt it as much as I love doing what I'm doing I felt like I was just making the wholesale over and over and over and over again and I had no time to create anything new That's when I started feeling. Burn out when I felt I wasn't getting to be creative. I mean I'm still being create. I was making my product in everything even though I making the same designs over and over. Sometimes each one's totally different and unique and handmade and I love it. But you still have this. You know the whole race started was I wanna make new things and come up with new ideas and as it was hard to find the time to do that when so much of my time was just kind of making product So that's the first time I reached out for help. Trained someone have someone right now. Who's amazing? Her name is abby and She works in the studio with me and she helps out a lot so she's working me for two years. I taught her all of my designs and how to do them and she is here with me in studio side can make sure everything's done to my standards. And that's really I hadn't had done that. I don't think that I would. I don't think that I would still have the business right now. I think I would have reached. Burn out mode pretty quickly. The now I'm able to focus on the bigger pieces and the commissions and making new things and I have so much more energy and I I. It's just like clarity of an excitement again because I I did start to feel that kind of fade away. You know what I feel like. That's the first sign of burnout when you're not excited to do the job that you love doing or create what you love creating. Then it's time to sort of reassess your situation so now I'm back at feeling I mean every day. I can't wait and I feel I could get new ideas and I and I'm excited to do my job in. I think sometimes it's okay to ask for help. You know whether it be. I've had help before with undoing more. The business side of Saab's You just have to see what you need where you need it and listen to that and and I think reach out for it. It's scary. You know owning your own business and you know money and hiring people and that sort of thing but I I always look at it as I want to continue doing this and I wanna continue creating and I want to continue my brand my business so like whatever I need to do to do that And to get there to get to this point that I wanna be I just acknowledging that in taking the right steps having a wholesale client like West our has to be incredibly overwhelming and he can't even as a small business owner the supply and demand and whatnot. I can't even imagine. Yeah that's it. You're doing an amazing job. Thank you thank you and for a while I remember being it varies sore. Afraid to let anybody know that I had help Especially in the Department of someone helping me make my work but you know I I. I got over that because what we're making his so. I look at it as you know. I started this business and I it just creating something handmade in the US of high-quality with high quality materials With mine designs and I found someone in my community who I trust and respect and brought them into my business and train them for two years. You know two and half. I'm fully in control of everything that's happening. And what's being shipped? Dow in it that I mean it's I don't think that's anything to be embarrassed of. You know and and the the only other option is to. I mean I don't know if there's a cap at some point where you can't physically make you know and I was kind of hitting that point where my business was just going to peak at one spot because I was just sitting and weaving constantly and I had no time to do anything else for my for my business or think about bigger picture things or new goals or new ideas. Because I was just meeting leaving leaving leaving waving for you know ten and twelve hours a day and that I don't think that's sustainable. Mo- yeah you would have to turn down incredible opportunities and not actually no. I'm sure you already have to do that. But you know there's certain ones that it's kind of like you have to figure out how to make room for them because you know it's something you WanNa do with West Elm. I remember when they first contacted me. I'm like there's no way how. How do I do this? There's no way Then I thought it such an opportunity and it has been an amazing opportunity. I get new clients might reach a broader group of people and I respect the local program that they have you know showcasing hand made made in the US products for people's homes and It's great for small businesses. So I I wanted to be able to say yes to that. Had your a way to make it work if we're GONNA think about like a life hack that you'd like to share related to your business or your personal life. Is that it to find help. To grow or what. What can you share with us? I think along those lines. Lifelock is to stage cited. You know like I I I think to avoid. If you're talking in business really just overall life stink cited and be positive for me like I said a was reaching a point are just sort of you know doing everything right my business and and making and loving what I was doing and creating with my hands and making a product but I did not feel you at. You have to nurture that creative self inside of you and I wanted to be able to do that. You have to find things on inspire you and rest and get out there and allow yourself time to create new things and to see. News aims and not. Just get so focused on like for me. I was just so focused on keeping the business going and making making making and it just became too much finding things excite you and how you can express yourself and anytime I have an idea it might be so silly. I just try it. You know it may work. It may not some of the best ideas. I've had like a jacket was such as Siri like random. Whatever I think you should really listen to yourself if you have an idea like that or something and it's always worth exploring and it may work out and may not but you know. Stay curious and excited. I love that stay. Curious is there in crafting sale that you're loving or practicing or observing that you are not known for you know. I really want I. It's it's hard for me like I still spent so much time waving that. There's other things I wanted. Try but like sitting down in crafting after a full day of sitting down in crafting isn't necessarily not hard for me. It's harder we'd take the time out of my work time to splurge something else you know which I guess not even taking my own advice. I need to do that. You know I really want to get better at punch needle and sort of incorporate other other crafting techniques into what I do. Yeah I would I would look at it I It's funny too because I think people assume again a lot of emails and questions that because I because I believe that is crafty and on I'm not I can't so I don't know how do I don't know how to Crochet. Don't know how to knit. But you know what I should learn. Maybe that's my goal for this year. Twenty Twenty Yard pillows that you would translate your worked upon cheadle so beautifully that you have to try it you dry it. Very meditates twenty twenty goal. I love it. That's awesome So is there if we were to how we were to kind of just up where you're at today. Is there one word that that describes you? Well I'm in say optimistic. I've always tried to see the good in things and see the good and other people and see the good in my life and Reaching for new goals and just trying to stay positive and I think it's easy and our society and with the world that we're living in technology and everything that's going on to just get very bogged down sometimes and hired side trying to do things that make me happy and try to be positive and I really think that what you put out there comes back to you. firm believer in that. So that's sort of where I'm not right now as mom as business owner you know trying to really just keep going and stay positive as I can and optimistic about life in general up. Now as you're contagious you know that. Yeah you pass it Asian. I read something recently about starting your day by sort of sitting down in like listing. Things that you're grateful for that you appreciate or Just kind of like taking a look at your overall and I think that that sometimes doing that can just be so refreshing and just like bring a new New Light to everything and see things in a different way because it's you know that data day kind of grind of having kids and work and Howson responsibilities that can sometimes to spe- a little issues. It's tough you know. Yeah absolutely so yes staying optimistic well you have a infectious personality and you just show it so well through your workshop video and You're wonderful teacher. Next month is going to be just such an awesome expiration of making in a totally different. We've never tackled something so big. So oversized in so fun Again to dive in unexcited. I hope everyone gets hooked on this says I am I mean I I think once I started we ring. At least I've had breaks now but probably for the first two or three years. I don't think I want a day literally a day without weaving. Even when I had my son I had a loom in the hospital. Oh my gosh I like literally never I love it. It's it's I love it so much and I'm so grateful to get to do something that I love doing and I think that everyone else is. GonNa love this to Erin.

Thanks for joining me. Have a wonderful creative day. Thank you guys so much for joining me with that conversation with Aaron if you're interested in learning more about a geometric weaving workshop or a whole feature make your page on Errand. We talk a little bit more about this tool exchanges that were offering this workshop. So if you've taken our workshop before or you have that will fit this workshop awesome. We have a couple of exchanges as part of our tool exchange program. They'd allow you to swap out tools or materials. Avail those that you already have within this kit. We have a gorgeous additional color way. Which is our Mojave Calloway? It's inspired by the beautiful colors of the desert. We also have a larger adjustable loom For a different style of weaving or bigger rather not a different style but creating bigger pieces and of course you can create errands. Geometric weaving on this piece. You can always go and create a smaller piece in a larger loom. We also have a couple of Neat add-ons and these ship complimentary in workshop boxes if purchase before the end of the month. They include various loom accessories. Not any that you need for this workshop of for future exploration So those that are really want to invest in that full weaving kit. We have a sword and shuttle that are available for purchase We also had our custom wool blend single ply hazard yarn that we use for so many of our kits because it's just such a wonderful perfect yarn for Weaving Punch needle work and so forth Available on our website and as well as those additional legs that you can add to your loom again not necessary at all and if you're a car weaver like me and you love to lean your loom. Lean your loom up against the dashboard. Of course if you're in the passenger seat or prefer to have lean up against the table while you're working in a chair legs are not necessary. They don't come in the original kit. But if you are a tabletop we've or you like to try that style of weaving we do have them as an option now which is not something that we've offered before so it's pretty cool all right. Thank you guys so much for joining back to your creative

#48 - Its Time To Cancel Karens

"Talk ramble this is gonNA sound so obvious but it feels like the Internet super super negative. They give right now. We had some actors on it makes me wonder like who I would and wouldn't want to have on the on the China to laugh your idea the of them's either GonNa be made even more great or shattered completely. I'm going to cancel Karen's just Karen Videos. I get so much anxiety Zayed from watching those videos. I don't know if they're real or staged but it doesn't matter it. Hits me the same so I recorded something yesterday and I think it perfectly sums up what our tour is going to be like ha abandon your God because it's time for the smash go if they haven't seen that sketch that's okay. I think I I think that's my favorite every blank in. Why did you write it? But Damian's Damian's improvise. Gosh so much chip probably frigging good. Appreciate thank you. Dad was a substitute ever for those that are in in the dark. I wonder if anybody listens to our podcast in the dark. ooh I don't listen to our podcast at all so I I didn't recording well. Welcome to another episode of the PODCAST. Oh Girl Courtney. In the host city with mature boys should Kanaya and demean a that is a demeaning title for me. Whose name is Shane Damian? How just kidding we switch speaking of switched I wore the shirt today a plan to wear the shirt today. The shirt was all I was wearing today. And then you all of us sudden out of left field flipping flipping nowhere match do for those at home listening not watching. What what are you guys wearing? We're willing yellow long asleep. I'm wearing a yellow hood. It's a Dan. Deli Yellow Dandelion Yellow on mine has not on the front. It's an Iraqi Rahman I believe each on Nice Cool I love it. I love your top. Ten favored enemies are probably not. But I think I just really enjoyed it at a very specific time in my life like teenager was when I was doing like distance learning so I watched it all day and then sometimes it's schoolwork nice. It was the first Manga ever read. My sister used to read it on a website like it looked like the pages were scanned into the computer. I remember I was In the allergists office where I used to get allergy shots and I saw an issue of Shonen jump that had yu-gi-oh on the front and I was like. Oh this is cool and I didn't realize you're supposed to read right to left at first but once I figured it out it was awesome. Let me take it home. Must have been like thirteen and I read. Read the yu-gi-oh stuff because I was into that at the time and it was super dark like the people don't realize the Manga is like totally different than the cartoon like. You basically kills a person on that episode through like a Trixie like sauce crack crack and kills a man. Those are books that live. Remind you go this way so it was like. I don't know oh it was dope and so in that same issue I ended up being Introduced to Shaman. King Naruto one piece Drank ballsy was ended at the time it might have been cartoons probably but I only watched Dragon Ball Z. I didn't read any MANGAS. I never I never. I don't think I really have read a Manga I read a a little. It's a little different you know because that's a that's a more compact series and you know it's older but but watching watching. I watched a ton of Dragon. Ball Z when I was a kid loved it and that was like it was like a sports event. Yes we me and my friends. 'cause back watch the freeze fight always let it out. Maybe that's why like Dragon Mosey so much now. Never could as a kid because on Thursday afternoons when it came on. That's when I went to karate on actual dragged living. Yeah so even now just like dragon. Ball Z stuff. But I still watching. I just like the fun just there. My sister one of my oldest eldest sister. She was like the huge near to the family. She had like a full body cardboard cutout of Lego US Kunar room and like whenever whatever my family is watching I'll just kind of sit down and watch whenever they were watching so a lot of it was one piece Naruto Dragon. Ball Z. A lot of dragon ball. I was sexually awakened by one of the characters in Dragon Ball. A the she's like blonde android. Seventeen really nit the second you said sexually knows like I got really straight. Her name evident straight blond hair and Jean Jacket. Mary's Crillon Yeah and then there was like one episode where she had to wash their clothes and the only thing available to where it was like a playboy bunny bodice artist thing sounds like dragged. Boma no no no that I think that is android because like her personality was super like Stoic. So is funny to put her in that God and also very dragon. Ball Z esque Hashtag master. Oh she is canceled canceled hardcore. Oh my gosh does not does. It does not work in the year. Twenty twenty tummies feeling after that lunch. I'm feeling okay we. We ate a ton of McDonald's before a busy busy day so he had to make a quick Mickey. D's I'm like breathing heavily from it. Still it's it's the kind of thing we're like. I know for facts no shade at McDonald's but just the way my specific bodyworks in the type of food. I'm used to. It will make me feel bad when you guys were like. We're getting McDonald's. We only have time for that. Do you want anything I literally had to weigh. Like do I wanna wait it like six hours to eat or do I want to have a tummy ache. But before he here we are. Yeah I rarely ever eat fast food. So it's definitely like a plunge out out of my normal normal snuff plunge toilet which he will soon visit already dead. It's handled I. She she happened. Yeah I'm feeling okay. Yeah you know yeah I think I think maybe in a way. It feels good because I feel like my systems very like my system moves at a constant pace. When McDonald's I get to finally have things stop for a minute? Oh yeah and it's nice. It's nice to have you know just everything all you know the it makes you stop. Stop everything stops say. What does your stomach lining have ads? So like you know that it's just that it's like my body's like wh- what is this US calling the supervisor. What what is this like I? I haven't seen that way to tales folks. We've rubber French fries. So we've analyzed at one of these cows is over one hundred years old and the other brand new all part of the Tanning Edberg sixteen thousand cows and a single Patty Aguila. Yeah Yeah I think that's that's honestly nice sometimes literally when I drink soda or whatever it like it helps China Order McDonalds. SPRITE is like it. Hit different you know. But I didn't get it this time. Someone told me it was like. Oh aw it's so good when you're a kid because when you're a little kid it just doesn't affect you your body's just crazy or when your kid you hurt all the time. Anyway that could be Yeah children are in constant pain right. Today's episode is brought to you by Burger King. Yeah ed thanks. The Burger King Burger King Burger Dot King Slash Smash. It's not actually sorry. That's Kevin by the way I say hi to Kevin brought to you by Burger King Burger King get back to a peasant. Burger Surf Awesome. I think also I'm feeling we're really getting into preparing for tour. I know you guys talked about that last week I do. My anxiety has been like guess what I exist exists like all the time lately and it's kind of a bummer but I I think the tour stuff. It's like excitement and nervousness because like I have a habit of being like when when something when a lot of stuff is happening today or in a week. It's like a lot opportunities for things to go wrong so brace yourself and that's what I feel. I'm actually excited for things is to go wrong during a show because that's when the funniest stuff to opposite sides oh man. That's that's so funny I I I don't know Courtney I think I think anxieties obviously like a life long thing and I've I've got some years on age wise but I've been dealing with anxiety my whole life as well I've I've noticed like a market improvement. I think in in how you deal with things. Yeah just seem to roll with the punches a little bit more so this is a new experience. You can't expect yourself to be perfect right off the bat but like you're kicking bugs. That's the thing though and I it's very sweet and I feel like I. I know what you mean like. I've definitely gotten better about like I think I have. Like what is the word anticipatory anxiety. I had a huge fear of the unknown of like. I don't know what's going going to happen. This is a new experience. I don't know how to mentally prepare for something I've never done before like we're going to Disneyland like a big day of a lot of things I'm like. Oh I got him on. I kind of need a mentally prepare hair for like all the energy and stuff but like this is something I've never done. I've done live shows. We did smash live. I did. School plays and stuff we had like six weeks of rehearsals for that. That staff I think once then we hop into because we are you know. I think we talked about this. Last cast were just now sorta starting rehearsals. We've been writing in like planning things out for a long time. But now we're like getting up on its feet so I think once we're like more into that that's when you'll have concrete experience to attach rings. It too and you'll we'll see maybe it's not so bad it's okay. What if there was like a a youtube tore critic that would specifically go to youtubers tours and just critique their their performances in their shows? What do you think they'd be like? I think they'd be a little sounding like the sheets I. I wish we'd get like a drew. Gooden breakdown because when drew gooden went to the Jake Paul show broke it all the time. It's great it's from a while. Oh ago is that when he was like. You're a bully is that why Kind Cody Cody. The Lily went like filmed a lot of show and lake back and see what time it's really great. It's really funny. Because he does he. Yeah call him ably do. What did Jay College ruble? No no not at all. I don't think Jake was aware of. It wasn't entirely sure where he was. This was like over over a year ago and this was in Florida. Drew to show in Wow Jake Paul Show in Florida. That sounds like yeah. I mean Jake. Paul is not the same as what he was then but this was when he was at the height But yeah we'll get something like that someone will break it down and just absolutely ruin our lars low. Oh Ki have been just like not wanting it kind of just waiting for someone to be like. Hey what a these people been doing and like really dissecting our content like no super seems to come out or not. Because we're not doing anything you know. There's nothing crazy about what we're doing like the people that breakdown of the people who are like a very opinionated online or a link doing stuff that's really fake our stuff is. We're just doing genuine and we're just like playing games having fun like what can you really pick apart about. We're in a great position with that too because we do still end up trending like people do know who smashes but we're not like poking anybody's buttons we're not like making I mean if we make fun of people we do it politely. It's out of love not hate usually 'cause that's the best way to parody someone so like we're not starting beef we don't have like here's the Tian small so like Brian. It wouldn't really make someone would like legit after go really out of their way to be like. Here's the thing about smash you know. No one's no one's picking apart Jax films or Goss- because like they're not really you know we're doing comedy like breaking down like comedy accounts you know it's it's it's more in the line of like you know so if you're going to be accusing someone of something or whatever that's when you're getting into that realm and we just don't we don't do that that's true Alec Brannagh Boho started as a Tanna Mojo parody like so strongly but she's become her own thing now making fun of people. It's such a like I don't know we come at it from such a different angle. Trying to be mean we're trying to just make comedy out of a situation like it seems like people for the most part ticket really positively Tanimoto is like one of the people that would just like I don't know if she's seen it actually I I know she's seen pictures of of like the costumes and stuff but she's the type it's like. Oh my God I love this is yeah if you do something. That's not like totally ripping someone apart and you're just playfully poking fun at them and then they take it like what what do you do. That's kind of on them. It's like you know I say like if you're big enough to be parodied by like like we're a comedy channel. We have to write comment meant content. That like maybe you haven't seen before but also relatable enough that people are going to actually know about it so for doing something on somebody than it means like congratulations. You're you're big enough to be parodied clear basically the simpsons. No I mean we are the simpsons of Youtube. I won't say it but everybody else can Kevin Kevin cut the you know you know what I'll give my opinion though. Oh on what I think. Our tour is going to be like. You're so I recorded something yesterday and I think it perfectly sums up what our tour is going to be like so just give give this listen. God I'm scared. What's coming scared now?

Hey where you just in the room I tell that was against that was against our belousova Turquoise I can't believe you're reading my diaries and Phonier Yang never never let out gas. I do it all the time I'm saying I could tell. I did it while I was making direct eye contact mcinerney moments ago. Hey let me talk to you about something real quick and I was and yes. Oh sorry I just let out a massive wall staring you in the ice and he was like man. It's pretty cool. That you went to the question have have to give it a moment. This is GonNa be the second guessing her own. We're talking about poops food. Tiny meet gang had multiple episodes because they were talking about diarrhea attacks. Because there's just like a thing that's happening where people are taking buckets of dumping it on a new form of terrorism the one on Hollywood boulevard. They called it hot diary. I don't WanNa hear that we're not going to talk about it. Don't worry go tiny Megan and you hear about hot buckets of that. Yeah By the way speaking of a tour is going to be like I did get a tip off from somebody the other day about how to sleep on a tour bus. You sleep with your feet facing the front of the bus because apparently if there's ever an issue that jolts you forward have your feet to brace you or like maybe you break your legs or something but but it's better than breaking your spiny. Come out my I yes that's true. That's really smart right. Oh good to know. Thank you forget. Who was Yankee? y'All a love sleep. I love to get it sometimes. They don't get enough of it. I don't know if I'm just still just adjusting from jet lag from being in Iceland Humble Brag.

I cadence sleep. Well I wonder how comfortable will be not at all not I'm not. I'm not paying for road trips. I haven't slept on a moving car. I can sleep straight up anywhere which is nice I will no joke. y'All I filmed a movie like way back in the day That was like a week of night shoots and literally like in between scenes. I was like Looks like there's a laundromat right there. Outside of where we're going to hop in real quick I just lay on the counter and follow it like three in the morning in the middle of Atlanta freezing cold and this is where I sleep now so I'll be able to sleep on the bus for sure but I don't think it's going to be like the best sleep ever. You Know My dad I my family did roaches. All the time like flying was not a thing and we. My Dad had like a helicopter helicopter wrist into a few years ago. My boy What he did have was a big red suburban with three rows? And when he would do he'd put down the middle row and then the far back rows are set and so it was like a big limo when you sleep on the floor and then he also this is how dated this is okay guys. He had had the Little Square Cube TV between the driver's seat in the passenger seat. And we'd put vhs or plug in a DVD portable DVD DVD player. And we'd watch widow we had a bunch of Those bungee cords tell it to the passenger seat and watch stuff yeah the TV would perfectly fit in between so we didn't have to wedge it into much. I think one time we went over some rough train tracks and fell down took out. You're always on a specific. That's a it's like we're getting a double feature. We are back. Jack followed by Milo and Otis. You're back to my dad. We always watched Matilda and like there's so many movies that my dad would only hear the the movie and had never for years had never seen like Matilda or or some other movie and he finally washed Mathilde like recently and it was so different from how it was in his head. It's great for your. It's what I would love about like that generation of movies especially ones aims toward Lord aim towards kids were like every bit of action had like an orchestration to it so I don't remember exactly how it goes but if the kid was like here have a carrot. You would hear that like the music like dude. I like that almost early Harry Potter style too. So I'm just like I wonder what imagery he saw in his head. Whatever curious like the voices of the characters like the wife and stuff I I love road trips I love the the camaraderie that comes along method? I I'm very have summer parties. You guys and should I bring movies. Yes typing La but also. I'm an introvert and we'll need me time. And so I'm GonNa make a little fortress out of my bed just like duct tape the outer edges of your bunk. I'm curious because we have. We have at least seven people. I think there are only three bunks and everybody else has to sleep sleep standing up like a bat. Oh that's that's unsafe Sandia. Yeah but they do if you flip upside down. That's true Shane I'm actually interested in you when I have room together a lot. Yes Mustang so I feel like I'm used everything but you. You're a little bit of a snore. I am. I'm interested in seeing if anybody hates. That is is it consistent. I feel like Hey I. The problem is that I live alone so I don't I don't ever know like how consistent is I don't know the schedule of it. I don't know if what ways I can not snore. You know you get one of those breathe right strips and you shove it way up here but uh-huh I never when we're in Sacramento. I never heard snoring at yeah. That's what's weird is sometimes you'll be like yeah. You weren't snoring at all and then sometimes it's like yeah. There was the loudest listening ever heard my entire life. It's okay that I mentioned that too. That's fine it's definitely true. It's not something I try to hide. Herman Barest about you know. I grew up with snoring like my dad. Snoring down the hall so I feel like I'll probably just my brain will be like yet I know at the says and I'll probably be able to keep sleeping. I I always listen to like waterfall or rain. Sounds when I sleep. So I'm just is going to bring some good headphones and plop them on and then if you if I can hear the snoring through that will probably just smother welcome to the small tour. Shane in is dead. Nobody knows how love speaking of which My roommate fire my roommate smothering forte. Yeah my roommate in college We bunk our beds So that like we had more space in the room which most people didn't do but it had the ability to do that so we used extra duct tape to like. Make sure it was safe but the mattresses were like super super thin and malleable so he slept above me and he would snore wicked hard so I would literally like put my foot and aim the smallest back. Just go to like he would like arch his back sit bolt upright and then fall back and then he wouldn't wake up but he would stop snoring so I would literally kick hit him square on the back every night I used to snow and I was a kid and my mom Martin on my mom my sister with like a stuffed animal at me and I was all took. Yeah I wonder we don't know who else is is snores. I started a little bit. Depends on my. How do you know I'VE WOKEN MYSELF UP A couple times recently. Not like full on from sleep but like when I'm starting to drift off. I'll just have a moment of here that it'll be like oh that was not. I don't sound doesn't wake me up really carry so so when we bring together. I have no idea if you ever did. I don't but I'm asleep toots audible. AUDIBLE DOT COM by Damien houses. We have a lot of people because we have more people. That aren't just like the cast that I'm Mike. I'm curious I don't know. Are they going to be sleeping on the bus with US I. We're all on the bus. I'm not comfortable with that. I think there's going to be multiple or I don't know we we we. We have a roof. Let them sleep on the roof. Yeah just I demand the nicest bed closest to the bathroom kidding everybody. You can't see my face on being second. I call the bed furthest from the bathroom through school realistically because I do store I should probably be as far away from everyone as I can. I don't I don't want to be there. The party. Because certain people have expressed their habits are on the toilet trees Damon. We've already talked about this. Last podcast was the only one who had an issue with it before. And even he bent and was like Damian. You are correct. I'm sorry I was such a Shit Bird Um I'm not trying to be a shipper. You can just open the door shit. I tell you what I'm GonNa go to the bathroom whenever I feel like it. You just gotTa have some Poop Hurri thank you thank you. It's so easy it's ask you to midnight on the bus to to what happened happened. There is not closed back up and then you know. trump anyways yeah I'm going to have time to do my makeup I have. I have no doubt by like the the shows. Were all going to be like. Oh man the shows are gonNA be awesome but the bus by the end of that week. I think we're all going to hate each other. What if we start there? Perfect and then. It's it's my dad's going to multiple shows. Great my family's come into one of them meet and greet so I can finally you. Can you met my pop up. I don't know if that's true. Yeah Multiple Times. Yeah you call them Kirk good old Kurt. I know it's car it's Carlaw Miller fine also some crazy stuff that's gonna be happening We just we've just been in that one room for a year now where we're getting kicked out down the second hour now. WE'RE GONNA be out with everybody. We're going to have desks our own. Little desks out in the in the. What do we call that areas? We are writers island within within the bullpen. Yeah it's called the bullpen. It's this big. I you know it's kind of like A. That's just what aircraft hangar. Like like I don't know like ceiling warehouse. Oh situation it's it's very cool stories. Pretty Young Bullpen is just what you define as the cubicle area I was I think the biggest opponent to this happening and even I've sort of come around and I'm stoked about it. I'm excited to have desks desks. Because we have that like weird little one in the classroom right now that we share but even that is in the most you know the chairs look nice but it's not the most comfortable it doesn't feel it's your speed and ours are standing desks. They can they can be. Yes yes I will be sitting on. Yeah I'm excited for meat. I like my my spaces where my message and I have to worry about anybody else's mess anybody else's mess snow. That one wasn't that one wasn't mining referring to one. I never lied. I coax oh I have called the call outs out for this past year. Now that it's over. We all left messages. I we it that I think it's tough but the room is what's that face date. I'm just like hey we're calling out then we'll call. It's a big room that we when we have shoe weeks and stuff. It's just everyone and they're breaking in their stuff. We the of meals in there. The irony is the three of US probably made the least mask for one day and leave all of them. I would literally have like my computer setup at that many desk and be like all right at this like two by two foot area is my space. I'm going to get my work done. I would leave three minutes and then someone else would show up and there'd be a pile of shirts on top of the computer. I'd be like that. That was the one spot but you chose that you needed that one spot where my computer there's hangers there's on the wall he can do. Yeah no that's not. How how we do it here? Even I like I have a hard time keeping all my stuff together like you should see my room on shoot weeks. It's it's a disaster because because I'm like what do I what will I wear. I don't know and then make us all over one place and I'm like when when I feel frazzled. You see it in my space so I'm just I'm excited that like like it's my responsibility and like I won't be bothered to anybody else as well. I'm excited too because I get to like personalized my space. A little bit like the room is fun but it doesn't have any of our specific civic personalities but now that I have a desk I can put like little pop there. Some exact you know do yeah like or something else Chaka the fountain shoot at Your Desk. Something Else No. Yes those quite quite a year. Though in that room it was cool. Yeah I think it's crazy how much it's changed since we started. I have so many videos on my phone from just that table. And y'all acting Carre cray. We will create a pretty crazy gone through a lot of rooms. Yeah the cast never really stay that I. I defy room corner. That was like just barely not close enough to a- pokey stop and then and then we got moved to the other side of that office where there was there was a poker up the whole actually you would have to come into the smush games room to stop. That was one of them. Yeah smush Games. James shout out to those rooms were those rooms are sweet. There were huge but they were the messy est the like stuff which show up. Yeah people will just dump things there and we've got qe and then also your chargers stole and you're like okay get stolen every day. Yeah that was I think. That's what's cool is we. It doesn't seem as much like that that that old office. We'd see an accident every other month on that street. It's dangerous streak. Where literally like no matter? What Day was of the week or no matter? What time you would just guarantee? At one point you would hear Scott and then you wait for the new impact that time all right they got okay and there's always drama like there was a hit and run and there's one where there was a bunch of kids restarted runaway cop right behind their car so they all got caught the crazy bunch of runs. It was a crazy road. It's much more chill in this in this building. Incognito Oh yeah. Our website doesn't have our address advertised on that Yes it's just better safety. I yeah the excited. I'm excited to be out in the bullpen. Because I I walk around the bullpen. A lot anyways I like bigger spaces I don't like being in a small room I enjoy. Oy both I like I. I appreciate both because we could go out there and be social and like I'm using camaraderie. That word a lot today but But then you could go in that room and it's just kind of quiet and I can be in there with myself but like I'm excited to feel I'm going to be more productive and like focusing on for sure because we're going to have a professional professional space because our room that we've been in for this past year is designed. It looks more like allowance. Pacers a couch. There's like a coffee table and then like this like it's not a desk it's a it's a it's designed you know what I'm sitting on a couch. I'm not like I think for me. Psychologically Watch them not thinking like oh I'm GonNa get work done. I'm thinking my God allow like I'm sitting down on a couch with friends whereas when I'm here doing work and I'll leave it and you know I feel like they're gonna be benefits and drawbacks though and again I'm excited for this now so I'm more leaning toward the benefits but like yeah. We're going to be productive getting scripts done and stuff like that. But I think we lose out a little bit of like you know it was a room where it was just us three and we talk and joke all the time. Get our work done. Yeah but like it'd be like Oh dude that could be. Oh we've got to turn this. Can I get a story real quick if we're out in the bullpen of everybody some talking but we're not going to be able to do the thing of let me show you this video on full volume now. Let me all year but that like people people have like almost in a way before like shut our door to be like you gotta stay out there with them. We got quiet. I think Yeah it was the Foxhole all I feel like because it would just be US three sometimes. That was all it was for an entire day. It's gotten different now. Like Ian Hangs out with us more and he's not like holed up in his office as much much. Yeah I'm excited I had. I actually bought my own headphones for my computer already. I'm not the one thing that bothers me though is when we give notes on like videos and stuff I would like to hear it from the laptop seekers because then you can hear the real levels of the music versus the voices. Let's go out into like a outdoor area or awesome Ted check notes on but then there's like all this wild sound you're competing with to hear this video and if no no if no one's using it like 'cause I sometimes I'll I'll notice even on videos that are releasing. It's no one's fault because literally the editing headphones are like so nice that the music and the The audio like from people talking. It sounds good for them. And then when it goes into a different device it it sounds it sounds Jeff. I run into that a lot especially with games videos. It's like literally like it. That's because to their ears. It sounds good but then when it goes to like my phone or the laptop. It's just little too loud so I like to keep an eye out out for that but we'll see I think it should be fine. We'll be okay. We'll be fine. I just I just wanted to talk about the benefits of drought. I still think there will be more benefits. I am very excited would have a desk. I need to be able to like even like you said this Lounge area has a SOFA where y'all sit every day but I post up at the desk and have my back to you because I still need that kind of like uh-huh structure to it uh-huh for those listening. What's your favorite kind of desk? Mine is I loved boy.

I actually have a bad history with desks and moving them. AW THEY'RE GOING TO BE IN RANDOM CORNER. I loved back then when we had desks. And we didn't do anything. No nobody needed a desk because nobody did any work. They weren't just hanging out. I didn't even have a desk at one point. I was like working on the enemy Vanity wonder feel about that was weird. I'm just like not even look at my computer. I'm just looking at myself. Yeah I'm a little nervous but I'll be I think it'll be okay S.. We'll we'll have our own spaces you know and I do think that was for me isolate it only find though we'll still be ticked talks and stuff and we're really going to be next to each other out there. That's the problem. Yeah I wanted to be further away from you. Guys wanted to be on the myth. I would love that. I wanted to work from the defy office. Yeah Yeah just banned in concrete and this is nice burned out insides of the guy. We're we're doing the pod an hour drive from Beverly Hills I I. That's what I do not. Oh my God that Dr Killed. Thank you sir. All right so yeah. We just had the craziest try not to laugh like smash shoot shoot. We've ever done twenty four videos one thousand five days slash podcast twenty four. Plus that's about like like for how for on paper crazy. Sounds we did okay like I felt like I didn't feel as dead and delirious as I thought I would. My energy was pretty damn good we. We're we're doing this in preparation for tour and and all the traveling we're going to be doing and we do like it's not. It's only something we really try to hide. Like we shoot videos in a day and then we release them when they need to come out but This was the most we unscripted Taunton. We'd shot by far including having some guests on trying to lap. which was we had two long tubers on on we had some actors on some big name? Yeah are excited. That tried to laugh. That came out. We shot with Thomas Lennon and Jack. What's his last name? I'm Jack Robbins. Chuck Robbins that. That one was shot this this last week. Quick Turnaround Recording yeah yeah that was that was really cool experience like I. I watched a lot of Reno nine one kinda. My goal is to work with every single one of them a night to work with all of them. That's my goal. It's crazy like meeting these people in person after seeing so much of them on a screen acting certain way Always it also like it makes me wonder like who I would and wouldn't want to have on the on the China to laugh because it's like you're meeting your idol so your idea of them's either GonNa be. You may even more great or shattered completely or are you never know because we've had we've had guests in the past and no one's ever been a jerk. No one's ever been bad but but we've definitely gotten people who don't know much about the youtube world and are kind of like they come into it like what is this. What are we doing you know? And it's like are you a comedy troupe. Burn it is is like when someone is a bigger name actor like that they do these kinds of things as part of a press circuit usually so so it is a very like it's not cold but it's professional like they show up and just all right. So what are we doing in any other. She'll be like we're going to interview you for ten minutes. Then we're GONNA have one segment where caller calls in and gets ask you a question. We're done great so this is so much more involved than that average everyday interview. It's like Jimmy Fallon kind of deal but maybe even a little more it is you wanNA. I'll tell you for an hour some bits well even even bigger youtubers to we have we. I don't know when the other one's GonNa come out with the other guests but it's like it's also people well that you've been just watching their videos for a long time and then you're getting to meet them in person so it's like like I if like say we well. It's like because we talked about this earlier. Like if we were to get Dwayne the Rock Johnson. Obviously we'd want to do like are you kidding. It's him meeting are idle are we. Are we shattering this. Vision this idea of this person does happen does happen. It's a double challenge for us too because that happens to everybody but now it's like we are working with them to have that sort of twist on what you're expecting and you have to put out something good. Yeah it can be weird. They're people like I I. It doesn't hit you until you're there and you're like oh you're just a you're just a person like every single one of them you know the the the star aspect of them is a marketed commercial thing that a team of people has created for the screen. Then when you meet them in person you're like oh you're a regular person. You're not a superhuman and like you are made to look like on on camera and that's the case for so many actors except for the rock who is actually just a superhuman. I wonder if he would make you laugh. Do you think Dwayne the Rock Johnson. What thank you? I think because he was a wrestler I think he would bring great energy to it because when we brought the w wrestlers they they were just so into it because they were just like yeah. Let's go anywhere really funny episode. They were just very committed. Excited you know. Did I ever tell you my friends. The Rock story now. It's my friend's story. So take it or leave it. I didn't happen to me. But he lived in a very very wealthy part of California and he said that like one in his backyard sort of has like a cliff going up like his neighborhood is very hilly so This backyard is like a cliff face or whatever so he said he like came outside one day and just he's Komo news like what and he like kept going closer to the sound gets louder and louder and like all these different functions of can you smell what the rock is cooking or whatever and he looks up on the cliff. And it's Dwayne the Rock Johnson practicing his catchphrase out on top of a cliff to the world. Oh I live in this very wealthy wealthy part of Calcutta debt. My neighbor is the rock. That's hello goodness. was he naked. I sure imagine yes for the sake of the story. Yes and again happened to my friend. I don't think he would ever lie. But you know but you also brought up a good point though like autumn's when you meet these big big actors or musicians or whatever. They're constantly so busy they're also constantly dealing with every person being like. Oh my God are you that guy. So it's like a broken record every day. See meet them and they're just kind kind of just like tired. They're not being a jerk. They're just tired. Yeah yeah that's that has been the case. I've definitely definitely dealt with celebrities where I was like. Oh they're jerk and I'm like no so looking at this situation I think they're probably extremely tired. It was a there was a tweet going around like months. Back of like Romney Malik. WHO's like Mister Robot Signing finding all these things in the middle of the street he definitely seems tired and then as he signing something for someone they're like. Hey can I get you on video saying hello to test for twenty nine th birthday or something like that. He's like no no but I can. Definitely I took a picture with you. And then she's like. Oh Yeah Okay and all the comments were like what a jerk not doing the but the bat and I'm like come on like maybe he's busy and you're asking for like three different print things like that's that's his day all day every day video like Harry styles. He was like in some random town. And these girls. Like you're rich like we travelled this far to come see you. You Dessert. We needed to picture of you. And you could just see this defeated. Look on Harry styles. Say's data but it's like that's so sad that's like they are just people that entitlement title. Nobody owes you anything. If you pay a certain amount of money to see a show. The thing you got in exchange for that money was the show like so the Creator viewer relationship. Neither does anybody anything like as a creator. I want to create because I feel good doing it like making my own on youtube videos on my own channel. I love editing. That's my favorite part of all of it and then obviously like if I'm making something funny then it's like yes. I'm doing this because I'm spreading. What I think is funny? I'm starting joy or whatever and if people like that's awesome than I gave them that joy and they can feel that joy and like that's kind of the transaction and if they if they wanNA leave a contra like that is totally like you have the keyboard not me about China. We're definitely in an era where it's kind of like the world is readjusting and figuring that out because there's like Marilyn Monroe. She was the most famous person over time and she was the first person to ever be that famous. And nowadays you can know ten famous people and then a group of people have Komo who they are because there's so many famous people in the world like in a way it really is a lot of famous. Yeah it's because it's because Internet and and there's just straight the population is bigger more platforms to become famous some more easily than others. I Tick Tock Somehow. People with zero talent have millions of followers is and they have me having meet-and-greet such or how many people on instagram have over a million followers. I think a lot of people don't always expect but sometimes I wonder wonder this might be too much. I think there's a lot of buts especially when they're like famous famous people. Because I'm like yet I don't know if this person is truly the case or not but it's like stay for example example Joseph Gordon Levitt if you look at him I'm assuming he has millions of followers but I also if you look at his post and stuff like that on twitter he gets like two hundred likes proponents. I'm like all right so either you've bought your followers or you are so uninteresting that only point zero zero zero. I didn't do the math. Percent of people actually care would you say is the third option because like we're now at an age where the Internet has been around so long that they're old followers that like drink even talk about it when we talked about it with all the time he he has the amount of followers. Yes but it's like the likes don't correlate added on. It's just 'cause it's been a long time. I don't understand that like who's no longer using instagram programmed. Like I'm twenty five. I don't WanNA use instagram anymore. It's more like I think when people are like I want to make twenty stand accounts. It's like Dean Hawes Heart and I love Hawes in house Houser one-two-three and all that stuff. That's the same person. So I think they just forget about those wanted. Extra accounts that they made instagram algorithm kind of is the nail in the coffin often for creators in a way. Because if you aren't paying attention to someone's content for awhile and you aren't liking or commenting their stuffed up showing feed. It happens all the time. Like I'm like Ooh I follow you but I haven't seen your stuff and go to the profiling of ten new posts IVANCIUC. You got married like all of a sudden. It's in your feet again once. He visited their pay. All over the place when you you follow someone they have four four posts in a row for on your feed the next time you go to the homepage. It's it's crazy to distinct as I think that's why it's important to like you know I'm I'm on Tick Tock but I have no posts or anything yet but I still have a presence there. That's why it's important to diversify what you're on because if you're like I don't care about twitter. I don't care about Youtube. I'm fully Elian. INSTAGRAM creator the second instagram's algorithm works in a way. That doesn't favor you. It's like everything you've built his gone that's also struggled to is when there's so many platforms arms. Am I supposed to be in UTICA new video. Hi I'm Courtney be sure to follow me on here follow me on instagram and Tick Tock and twitter and read it and and discord and like all these things it's like and that point then. What is the relationship with the viewer? Like why am I giving you this responsibility to like. I don't know it's a lot. It's a lot dude. I don't know how creators do it successfully Lennox harm because for me it's also about like authenticity like it's hard to sit there and be like I want you to follow me on this and this and this and this and this it'd be cooler to say like I would like to offer you something ending unique and cool if you go to this one where I can only offer you that thing there but there's only so much that goes because you only have so much time in the day to make stuff I remember when I was online and like I got to a point where I had a second vine account that was called like I think it was called Crotchety and It was for the stuff like I. Just WanNa post this because I like it. It's not funny. It's maybe artistic or wherever because I felt like pressure to keep the main account to be a specific type of content and I feel that I feel like every platform. Now I mean talk. I'm like I don't even know what this is so like when posting on I don't post on my own at all I I should more but I'm just nervous like if you start doing one of those dance things is like am I doing it. Ironically people expect that. There's a lot like anime weed content. Do I start doing that like I don't want to just do everything and I see a lot of people trying to do the ironic dancing and it doesn't play like it's funnier like and now I've seen. I'm seeing a lot of female creators that I've known and kind of interacted with a lot for a while on twitter stuff. Now they're starting to legitimately do the tick tock dances sound. Like oh you're there now okay. But you're you're diversifying. What you're doing at the time I think what I like about our brand is what what we take those things and we make them weird or we make them crazy we smash? I'm in a way so like yeah like we talked about that one to talk idea that it'd probably I mean well we you have done by the podcast. We have to. We have to. Yeah we're just taking one in changing the audio into crazy voice. That's right yeah got it. Yeah Oh good. Let's do it. Let's do US commit three to one. Believe in your dreams leaving leaving James to do the for. Yeah I got I got home. I guess outfit author prepared because I wanted to do it over. I'm gonNA keep doing this. F I'll tell you why I'm doing. This is because I need to find. I'm searching for the joke that'll make Gus Johnson laugh on. Try Not to laugh. It's not gonNA happen. Look I know the I. I think he's coming like we're going to have one with him soon. Going to be coming coming out and look I'm GonNa bring everything everything I don't think you can do it. I think it's nothing against you. I think you're funny as hell. I think gus has a very powerful jaw. Aw I think he's going to laugh but no water will leave his face We'll see we will see. I will defeat him. I believe in me when I think about jokes folks I will sit up at night thinking about what I could do to make. Just Johnson Laugh. I put on fight song and I just said about what can I do I I laugh. Yeah my methods very different from you guys because I I. It's not that I plan it out entirely but I think what's what's like all have thought I'm like that's funny all right. I'm going to do that. Like for instance like Sassy leg Satellite Infantry earlier in the week I was getting out of the shower and I just started like dancing around naked and this is really silly I was like. Oh I'll make a bit out of this. Okay this is really silly. Where are you in the mirror? How did you know it was just was isolated? Awesome like just moving my legs all silly and I was like you know what Sassy legs. That's funny infantry is gene. I can't do that behind enemy lines. What look in the mirror? You know it's like if I think for me or like so in the moment that like if I if I were to like even sometimes I'll come in with like a one word fought for myself. I'm like this reminds me something I said to Shane. The make them laugh once and I'll like write that down on my phone but like I can't make things funny if I'm like. Oh I could build character of out of this throughout the week because when I get up there I get so nervous that I'm like trying to get into that moment of like explaining the character within a second I overdo it and I. It doesn't yeah he can't make it funny the like I feel like whenever we're in situations where we're coming up with stuff on the fly. That's when I'm like I'm laughing. So hard at what you're saying and I don't I I don't feel like I contribute as much in those situations but with try not to laugh and it's like okay if I can plan just like even if it's just like five minutes then I can think of something really funny but I do need to say i. Yeah and you notice it. You'll probably notice it in videos like when I say jokes it's never just like it's rarely on the fly. I'll be sitting there. You'll see me Kinda smirk to myself and then I say it just takes a second for me to you know slow cooker. Are we talking about this by the way. Sorry I know rolling out like sometimes there's a lot there I won't say which ones are planned. which ones aren't It's not planned like okay. We'll talk beforehand. It's like there's just times right come in and I'm like okay. I got some that I know is going to make a recording our phone like shortly before I have a note pad if I think of something. Like whoa how I came up with boneless one sound that I thought was funny and it was it was and that was that was the voice and I was like okay. I'm just GONNA use that voice and became the name. I can definitely do stuff like that. In my phone. Let notes page. I had like the word basis ballroom down in words like I bet Shayna laugh at baseball and when I saw like the costume backstage and I was like oh I can totally put this together and be like this ball. It's that that kind of stuff. Oral write like poetry. And I'll be like oh that's right it could say a poem and then all put on the hat and I'll be like I'm the bug man and then say a dual was like I think it was the most proud I was of my brain on the fly. Because that's where her goth horse girl Gemini hogwarts students. Those I was like I'm kind of. Let's trust that weird. Quoting same from party was it. God wh where where it was something we were. We were at a bar. Cade something like you were talking about like a Nigerian thing. No I was like because we had had a couple of drinks I like like was again. I'm not feeling anything. Wow Yeah you don't really seem to feel alcohol that much and I was like yeah and kind of Aletsch it and then yes I mean One of our said designers was like what did you just say like. Yeah you're definitely that you're nearby the only people to make birthday but it was a work of everyone was there. Yeah it was that one but you know it's no I already knew where era French applied so fake Girl Your faker than veneers. T- maybe we're having a one time as a dentist office and I was just there to fix a tooth cleaning and he was like looking looking at me and my teeth and he was like you'll get worse. It's fine I was like. Oh you start buying expensive crap. I don't I don't mean get rid of these these ones and then when he fixed the chipped tooth it broke when I got home so I was like okay. I'm not going to this. I hate that yeah. Yeah don't insult like I've had doctors in Salt my body multiple times. I told you I remember. I told you guys about the how I had to get a steroid shot and the doctor was. You got no ass and I was like what that's probably a lawsuit. Yeah I don't know people suck. Yeah most those people to say. Oh no did I cancel. The doctor. Can't saw do. We want to cancel the week Shane. You got something so so ian pitched this idea called cancel of the week where we cancel something something. That's that's just gone too far we're done with it or canceling and For for instance for me. You know what I'm canceling like. I'm trying to cancel it. The second alarm I set in the morning I set two alarms right or I sat sometimes two or three. I is that the first one. That's like me waking up second one. Is there as a backup in case. I don't get up and I fall back asleep. The problem why it's getting canceled is because it decides perfectly not not my plan not my fault it decides to go off perfectly once I've gotten in the shower and then it's across the room and dance naked cold at five. Am to mice in sharp lawyer. God like Alexa because like if I hear that second alarm going off and I go go. Lexus stop and then it stops leg adventure. I mean I just keep on going that smart. You should utilize your you kind of just have her in a corner on really talk remains Alexa but this is my iphone. That's Oh yeah yeah so I just keep I keep mine by the bed and like I've caught myself like treating her too much like a human where like the alarm will go off and I'll be like assigned I COLLEC- says by the way also change. Its name so this never becomes an issue. That's what I did. I was like five more minutes. She's like I'm sorry I don't understand I was like damn right. You're on my mom. We say Lexus News five minutes. Oh Yeah I say. Wake me up in ten minutes or wake me up and third place a my To my Alexa. I'm always like I always say thank you because I listening. And all had some sentence structure listening is in just rock hard. I'm just so rock hard on the other end Very played to my because when the robots uprise. I want them to know one of the good ones. I want them to know. No not to mess with me because my girl. She doesn't listen to me sometimes. I actually had this really cool setup. I have a space heater in my room and I poked it up to a Wifi plug dope because connected to Alexa and I could tell her to turn it on and off so I didn't have to get out of bed or I can do it from when I'm not home. And they want my bedroom to be warm but then all the plugs aren't having a mind of its own so I would tell her to turn it off and she'd do the little to show me. She did it and it was not a higher hazard may be ooh That's not a thing anymore. Don't trust her. I have hooked up to a ceiling. Fan Lights Up to a rumba style. Vacuum Oh cool. Offer offers like But the but that can't be going to be like if I'm like Alexa sweep the floor. It's like I'm sorry I'm dumb as hell in I go like Okay Alexa. Ask D- Butts to to sweep floor. Yeah so and then it gets caught on my cell phone can Alexa kill me. Alexa Alexa Kill Felicia Alexa ended all nice. And but like honestly. You don't really need one. I mean obviously not but once you get one like this helps me. It's it's barely convenient. The the vacuum thing is terrible. I would say the the lights of the best thing for me so I don't have to get up in the middle of the tonight but I also say Alexa Lights Green Gaming some imagined whatever game think part of the reason. I don't use mine because my apartment's very small. It's not like I. I don't have to walk that far to do anything but you do have to walk. I like it. I mean the Sassy little stroll tiny little place Jason Long Moving. Maybe really might move this year. I don't know I kind of want a bigger space. I kind of want I really want. It's like a patio. I want something outside. Nice like that jinx into thinking. Hey Shane what's up. How would you like it in if I kicked out my roommate government? Would you guys live together again. If that was a thing that came tried for us and shame has excuses. Maybe I don't no no it's like I can. I like having my own space I do. I definitely love being alone. But seeing our crew like like Taylor and Brennan and Billy L. E. and all them how they have this gorgeous house and they live together and it looks like just the they they're so cool makes me miss having roommates when I when I was living with my. It's definitely fun but I've definitely gotten gotten accustomed to living by myself. I yeah 'cause like listen the time between and getting out of the shower and putting clothes on gets longer and longer every time and I don't want to deal with anybody seeing that and get you were going going to adopt cats. They stare they do I just I get to do whatever I want. I can make coffee in just a jock. Strap and her other roommates just thirty so funny. JOCK straps not comfortable. Nobody really nobody no. They're very uncomfortable hurt. They're just man thongs right no because they talk different. They're different in jockstrap. Don't cover the the buttocks either backpack essentially yeah. Yeah Yeah not comfortable sucks. You guys should try out no host of the podcast we. Maybe I shouldn't be alone guys. We need a wellness. Check according okay. If we should be concerned come on can't make naked jokes because it's uncomfortable because everybody's everybody's nudity should be l.. Bodies Gross his farts on the microphone. Do Yeah Girls. Why can't we be funny girl? I can't might make it knickebocker disgusting. All human should be ashamed of themselves. Also you can't make coffee while wearing a jockstrap that that messes up the aromas the burned. Yeah exactly Kevin looked so uncomfortable right now Kevin peepers. It was above being shut up laugh was there. was there any other cancels that you. What are you guys canceling? I'M GONNA cancel Karen's or just care in videos so much anxiety from watching those views of like I didn't ask for the coffee like where's whereas your manager and there's so many of them I don't know if they're real or staged but it doesn't matter it. Hits me the same. I can't see them anymore in to swipe through talk talk all of a sudden. It's just like yes. This has coffee and I can't have that. Do you know what that means do. Excuse me do you know what that means. I'm like I can't just hits me so hard because I used to. I work in retail and I just know that I also didn't even see half of the worst of it like I can't do it feels like the Internet's like this is gonna sound so so obvious but it's feels like the Internet super super negative right now in that those types of videos are the only things that are ever trending right because it makes everyone feel so good it makes us feel. Something's everybody's just really bad like just people being awful like those things it's like. Hey everyone watches prison being awful. It's like why are we always losing. I think what I WANNA cancel on Tick Tock. is these videos. Were girls like this is me catching my toxic friend on camera. And it's like the worst acting or you just see the Goldman like okay but I. I wanted to wear red to the party tonight and going okay. Well I'm wearing pink and no like you've always like tried to live in like my shadow like because and we've been friends like you. Oh you can't do that and then you're just like there's all these kids that are believing this is real and I'm like you guys don't know what acting is. The top comments are like. Oh my God. I can't believe that happened. And then the one after that is it's like people who think this is real and then three clown emojis like that's the one I you know. It's the same kind of a thing where like it'll be two people looking at the camera mental here. Like I know you cheated on me with Brad or something like that and then the again bad acting like wait. What Qatar on camera? But also at the same time that is another example of like its teenagers and they really WanNa do something scandalous and they haven't learned yet did notice an influx of videos to sorry. I'm just talking talk I did. I did notice an influx of videos on tick tock where I'm like. It's it's younger people who haven't made anything yet. So that's where it's coming from but like you'll watch the whole video not not be entirely sure what they were even trying to do like it's shot really well. It'll be like a scary video. Be Like I found this thing in my basement but there won't be enough parts of traditional story structure to be like. I'm not even sure what you were trying to make me think was in the basement so well sky. What's in the sky like he's having a guy like part two so they have a lot of Um save like a lot of raw talent and how to get you to see things and look at things? But they don't know story structure. Berkshire slept there. Like how interesting to see a teenager be able to publish this and see you know you wouldn't normally see that it's like the videos you make it home with your friends. This is the stuff that makes me really excited to like if I could be eventually a film highschool film teacher because like I would hope that like those kids will be like none of the film and they come in and they can actually actually learn like what that's like or like put the talents that they have to actual use. I don't know yes. It's interesting movies aren't gonNA exist in ten years is true it can be Vr. Just going to be the are going to be an spiderman. Yeah Spiderman Butts in ten years. It's just GONNA only be that's it. Kevin seemed so disappointed every time that happens is there. Are you going to have to wait that out every time Kevin Do. We have to listen to this. While edit this right yeah Do you have the cutoff. You're talking about being naked. We're GONNA have to cut this whole podcast because it's not fair. That Tyler Phillips can come out with no shirt on and and people are like but if I did then there's a reddit page I want you to cut out everything except my farts. We get a hypersonic transport. Sure lab boys how you guys feel. How did we do? uh-huh hurts.

Less is More (w/ Jenny Rodriguez)

"This is a head gum podcast. Don't. Go should. This is. True Is. Welcome to another episode of just a tip and advice podcast. That's equally about its tangents as is about it's tips Ayas. Today to help me help you I'm super super excited. We have Jay Rodriguez in the studio. he's been my stylist, my go-to styles for red carpet events and stuff for like two years. Two years time flies honk. So, anytime I go to bed. Kahn, which is not often because there's a lot of people. When I do go you dressed me in every single look every day I. have a different look some days I have to looks and I feel in such good hands with you. I've worked with I think maybe one or two stylists before in it is like kind of like dating to find one that understands you can pull you out of your box a little bit because when we first started working together I think I don't wear any color. Or Black White and grey and then I think the for the last you dress me for the emmys red carpet in the as red carpet and I think you'd pulled like a Fuchsia to ps I was into it and I didn't end up wearing it because we found something else that was better. Weather. biker shorts I. Love that look though it was like edgy perfect for that. Award show. But. It's so nice to get out of my box in feel like you understood what I liked, but also pushing me enough to maybe I didn't know I liked that, and then you pulling something showed me that I could like something very bright. Well, the I think the important thing when you're building with your client as a Stylus, you want to bring options that them feel comfortable in a sense, but also bring in some like Oh, this is a little outside of our. Comfort Zone but I think it can be cool and you never know it might work. You know really and then you know they're like Oh this is different but I liked it like I felt good at it. You know it's always good to bring a lot of an array of options because if you just stick to that one like same luck, it gets boring you know right and expected and expected. So you want to go on the road carpet but make I never. Thought, I would see her wearing that, but it looks so good. She pulled it off. Did you always want to be a stylus or when you were young did you something I always liked passion I was as a kid like always I was fascinated my mom used to bring me like fashion magazines from work and it was oh. My God like this is so cool. But Funny Enough I studied communications and Broadcasting Oh. Yeah. That's what I got my bachelor's in and I thought I wanted. To do that for the longest time and then one day I was like this is not fulfilling me like this is not what I WANNA do for the rest of my life and then sure enough my friend who worked at e in makeup was K- they're looking for an assistant. Do you are you interested in I was a gal like this is definitely something I want to get into so i. I went for the interview and then like two weeks after I. Think it was like the Oscars I got the call that I got the job and the rest of history from there. But yeah, it was a stylist assistant stylist assistant. So I started off assisting, which is a anyone is trying to get into the styling world assisting as the best way because you learn a lot. Yeah. Yeah, and so I started I started off at assisting and then sure enough time progress and opportunities showed up. I had the had the opportunity to like do styling at e and from their opportunity stemmed outside of e as well which was awesome. Do you get a lot of your work through word of mouth or just by different jobs like that? It's word of mouth but also. To like jobs that like, Oh, you should use jenny or like you know lake. She did this job. You know. So yeah usually that's how it works or people. You know like damning me like Hey I'm interested in this and if it works out, then I also work that way. Yeah instagram. So he I know it can be a really good tool if eased right if you have used right, it can be a great network. On my God. Okay. We have a million questions from instagram but I want to ask one why won't ask to? Okay. First of all, what are you were? Someone told you before becoming stylist. Good question. Don't take anything personal. ooh that a good one don't take nothing personal and be patient. That also good one. Yeah. Those are both very got. Okay. Second one before we go to answer. If, you're a cartoon character what would your outfit be because they can't change you like once they are introduced, they're wearing the same thing for the entire duration of the series I'm very minimal. So I think just like jeans like a white t and a cool like leather jacket. Yeah like some cool sneakers I. Would wear to. Cartoon. Thing, so to. Me and has the same style. What style is pretty cool I. Like his style. Yeah. Yeah. I have a masculine vibe. Instagram I asked you guys on instagram stories for a bunch of questions based off a fashion and style. We have so many and I think this is GonNa be great because. I can't answer these. Sweet good that you are here to help. Okay. Let's see. Oh this we're starting deep already. Okay. From shuttle underscore a it says good tip in feeling confident in your clothes I. Think the biggest thing is finding options that are flattering to your figure. You know because if you wear something that isn't flattering, you're gonNA, feel uncomfortable the entire time that's why I always say like trends are not everyone and like don't follow the trend just because it's hot like follow something where. Something that is good on that looks good on you because then you'll radiate that you know you'll be competent in like no matter if it's on train or not like that's your. If it's your body, you feel good and people can will notice that right now something I. I'm sure I cannot find in the amount of these but when I was looking earlier somebody mentioned about if I think they said that if they have pc os which I looked it up and it was. Always. Syndrome how do you know everything? Cystic Ovary Syndrome in where you carry your way in the mid. So and they were wondering how to how to dress for that body type. If you've got like almost a pear shape what's a good flattering style for that type of body shape I feel like if you wear like like a mid rise or a highways, a heights it, you know sometimes a mid rise will hit right now belly section and you won't. See it as much because jeans or like the skirts will cover it. Yeah. also wearing like spinks underneath spanks her like everyone more spinks they're the lifesavers of everyone you know. So that also helps you know suck things in a little bit more. So you're it looks you know your clothes look more flattering. The ALEC, little. Yeah Let. Yes, exactly. Hug. Always I always feel like highways jeans it just like sits so nicely on everyone. Shape it just gives you a really nice per year Britney. Spears is still rocket eloping? No. You could still see the Thong. See. She she's doing her own thing is doing her own thing. Okay Britt. We see. She's the cutest I. Know There's a lot of this type of question. Dad Man Your Dad. What should everyone have in their closet and there's a lot of these closet essentials. So what are a couple things this can go for? We can do. This for girls because there's a lot of guys fashion cell questions that I'll get to later for a female's closet or a more feminine closet what are? Some go to pieces that everyone should have in there. 'cause I think a good pair of Denim. Because we wear denim every day and you can easily like elevate the look either by if you're GONNA go out at night, it's very transitional. So like if you'RE GONNA go out at, you can wear like a booty or he'll, and then just on jacket and you're out the door you know so good paradigm for sure a black dress you can never go wrong with wearing a black dress. If you can't find anything aware you wear a black dress thrown some earrings and like a pair of like pumps and you're good to go. Also a very good state boy I always tell all my clients to have leather jacket. You know you can't go wrong with a leather jacket. It's just easy even where all seasons and again, it's very transitional pair of sneakers. You know just all clean white ones that you can wear with dresses, skirts, jeans, pants, and what else a good blouse well, she's a good blouse I would say theory or Vince has really nice blouses. Okay. They're just simple but you again you can dress them up and down with jeans pants skirts whatever the look is and also too I would have to say a good pair of black pumps A good pair of black palms or strap ease and like check check check these things but I also by so much Oh my God we'll get into that. Like a nice coat, a camel coke greatcoat those are good staples to have. You know it's like especially during the winter I mean, we don't get winter here in La often but when it starts getting a little bit colder, it's a glaring piece because you can just throw on your jeans white t and then you throw on the Co and you look put together yeah. Speaking of layering sometimes I run into a problem where I'm trying to layer but then it becomes so bulky and then I put my coat on how do you layer without looking? I usually just get really thin long sleeved shirts or even just like a t shirt, and then I throw on my sweater. So like right now I'm wearing a t-shirt underneath the sweater and then I have a coat in the car but I make sure that the Cote has space in it in the sleeves especially where I won't look like. I. Drive because I'm too like stiff you know. So I definitely. Feel it just getting like really thin t shirts or long sleeve shirts for winter and just wearing over worrying under like sweater or jacket. It's easiest way right layer. What about there's a lot of guys style question but it just says help with guys styles. August needs to sleep. And it sounds like he also wants styling. But do you style a lot of men or women or do you kind of have a healthy variety on your roster? A healthy variety on both ends. As far as guys I feel like less is more, you know like. I feel like style is so easy 'cause. They can easily throw on a pair of trousers sneakers a jacket and a hat, and they're out the door you know so they the less. The better. They look at least I. Think. So like even lake cool jacket a white t shirt pair of jeans a boot or you know the Orlando Loafer look really cool who my God you know I remember I did this guy that only were loafers. Socks with, them. Like just loafers in like a naked angle and cropped trousers and I was like this hot. I Love Charles and I love the crop trousers I think that every guy should own a pair of crop trial trousers. With so much again, a white t shirt black T. shirt grey t-shirt A button-down jacket. There's so much. You can do with a good pair crop trousers. What's the hottest outfit you can think of for a man like if you saw a man wearing this, you'd be like, Oh, my God like melted into a puddle I would definitely say like a jogger. Like. Rude. Have you seen? Have you heard of the brand brewed? No, they have the best trousers for guys. Okay. Yeah. they're just like very transitional like you know guys can wear them all seasons. They can wear them out or just like casual wear with a cool sneaker and a Chunky sock. But I would say, definitely one of their trousers, a clean common projects sneaker. A. White t shirt and just like a like a denim jacket or a leather jacket. Yeah. In a beanie or like a hat own way. I would think is so well, the thing is I like comedy nerds. Sweater vest. Look. I think like a good pair I mean if I saw a guy that was wearing what you just described I mean he I'd be like he's cool for me Oh my myself. If the guy had like a like a low profile, all white sneaker that's so cute and just like good fitting jeans not too skinny but definitely not baggy yeah and like a black short sleeve t shirt just that like Oh my God. Let's see how simple fashion is like. It's so easy just putting the right pieces together they look put together really easily you know.

Easy with a million Z's twenty-three asks tip for plus size girls please. again, I would just say finding the right pieces fit the silhouette, the best you know like. A pair of jeans that hit right like right at the at the waist because I feel like you can wear whatever you want. No matter what size you you are as long as it fits good you know that's the biggest thing. You just have to find the right pieces that fit your figure because that's what you're gonNA feel most confident in you know or if there's like a like a cut of something or like a piece like high highway jeans again, you know I feel like those are super flattering on anyone my savior. Yeah. usually just that like just finding pieces that are flattering and don't have too much going on I feel like that's the best. Piece of advice I can give that's my whole. Thing I've anything with a pattern. Yeah. This is a question that come came up a lot from underscore alley Huang's how do you find your style? That's tough I'm I think I'm figuring that out now but yet, how do you because trends changed so much so much that how what's the best way to find your style when you don't really know what you like I think is just trying a little bit of everything until you find the pieces that make you feel the best. So like say you like I duNNo. The like say you like a certain like you like hipster style right? You like a little bit that they knew us. You incorporate that with like the minimal style you know you just kind of play around with all the trends and then you kinda fit you make your own style. You know just by picking and choosing I feel at least that's what I've done. You know with myself and my clients to like they'll send me pictures and then I'm like wait this is nothing like what you sent me like Oh but I wanNA talk. So it's just kind of like picking and choosing what you like from every trend Ray you know or like Something you see like in a magazine or like a celebrity wearing I, feel like when you? You just. I. Don't know. You just have to figure out like that. One thing you like and then you look at it is there a trend that you hate? CanNot get. Onboard. With Style your clients. Really good at this is a good question. I'm trying to think Honestly, I'm not really into like the lime green more like the billy I like Yeah I.

More sleeker than when you have so much going on. Yeah. There's a question here somewhere that was asking about mixing patterns What is there like a rule for that? Not The I'd I've never done it because I am so confused but I know that you can yeah the rule for mixing patterns being just seeing what patterns look best together. So I've tried a lot of different things I'm like Oh and sometimes are just like I would've never thought this would look together like this look good together but it's just like playing around you know like Oh maybe this. plaid will really good with this tweet skirt you know or like mixing like playing around with patterns and seeing what which one like catches, your eye, right? So it's almost like a mix of textures to yes. Okay and seeing what looks good next to each other and then even on your like this good on right you know trying things on is the biggest tip that I can give it to any especially like because thrift shops Oman Joh-. Something can look great. That's why I should stop online shopping because you can't try anything on I. Don't like online shopping at all because something can look really good on that model or even just like the picture of it can look really pretty and then you get in your it looks nothing like nothing how it looked online was lying to me or even when you go to the store like it looked really good on the hanger and then you try it on and you're like this looks absolutely horrible. ME, in addressing room like some hands I'll be trying a pair of pants on and it won't go above my knees and I just am laughing but I'm like this is ridiculous for. You know what? Though like something for everyone to keep in mind that it's don't like freak out that it's you. It's just every store is different like they're sizing is different legs Zara. I can be a size four in there sometimes, and then I'm a size ten now Mike how did that happen but it's just like different fabrics fit different on everyone. So don't be so hard on yourself like that's one of the biggest tips I can give just because everything is is made differently right and if it's different too right. macaraeg asks tip for accessories. There's at one coco chanel quote that's like. Before you leave the house, take one accessory offer something like that. What's your stance on accessories I am very minimal with accessories I feel like I love when you like layer chains finding right chains. gold chain silver chains I. think that's a really cute and feminine accessory to have or layering your bracelets. You know like I feel like adding like a bold statement bracelet and then doing little thin ones. Yeah. Can Be Really Nice and just like it makes a statement without being so loud. You know that's the whole thing. It's like when it's t when anything is too much, it's like what are you trying to prove to us? Yeah that's I. Mean I'm so minimal of my clothes. I need not I need to be a little bit more adventurous but I'm trying to get to a point where I'm only buying things that are really quality in stop online shopping like 'cause as much as a thrift shop, I do buy from whatever you forever twenty one sometimes right basics and I mean one forever twenty one shirt has lasted six years and I don't know how, Oh, my Gosh I was like what my return on investment for that Shirt Oh, I'm getting paid to wear basically. But I'm trying to just find one good piece of everything like one white button down and one goto pair of jeans one like Chelsea, Boo and one sneaker. Shopping too much. I. Don't know how chill out I feel like it's like I know what you're talking about like having those key pieces and just like making different outfits I think that's Great. But if you WANNA try like different types of styles you can I would say don't spend your money on those trendy stuff. That's why it's great to have options like Zara and top shop because you can buy the trendy stuff and not spend so much money you know because then you're going to want to get rid of it. So it's like, Oh, I imagine you spend like safe hundred dollars on a Shirt you wear it like only during the time that trend is in right and then the trend is over and you're like I'm never gonNA wear the shirt ever again is just sitting in your closet so Dan don't spend your money on the trendy stuff spend your money on the timeless pieces like jeans a good leather jacket a good button down shirt. You know a good pair leather pants. Yes. Those you're gonna be able to wear all the time and you can pair them with the trendies s xactly and you get more you get more bang for your buck. Absolutely this is from the same. person but I like the question so I'm going to ask it. Okay. She asks here here they ask how to look more fashionable. What's one tip? Like one thing you can do that can make you look more fashionable our you know what I loved. A good pair of trousers I feel like trousers just make you look so chic you know and you can wear trousers with a t shirt or a nice blouse and just on a leather jacket or Jean Jacket or coat. And you look. So put together some nice and like effort list but still very like fashionable Yeah. Okay. You say trousers I'm going to say I do a French talk or full talk almost all the time I lived in trousers I've been doing this thing lately lately I did one time yesterday I wore a band t that I talked into trousers and put like white vans on and I felt great. That's so cute. It's like but see it's like just putting like mixing different. Styles, the band he can be a casual you know look but you're putting it with a pair of trousers and you're elevating the look. And then you're keeping it still very like sporty with your sneaker which is fun. Yeah. When one from each category exactly in fact. Okay. Before we go into all the other questions, we should take a break where Jenny gives us an extra piece of advice that you can find at just a tip podcasts on instagram and we'll be right back to answer more of them. Yeah, I'm telling you genes. So like once you find the right pair of jeans that fit you came over like I man I went through everything I went through every phase I went through my Zara Phase I went through the top shop Jamie genes for a while, my God I had every single cash Jamie to, and then I was like the more I wore them. I was like I started seeing like fading and I'm like Man I'm spending like seventy eighty bucks on these genes and then after a while like their trash. So then. When Dow's Lemme just go see what the hype is about these redone jeans and I went and I tried them on. And I literally like every month I buy myself a new pair of redone genes in these redone. IS THEY'RE? They're not for their revolve, right? No they're Levi's. But they're like they just called him slash redone because I guess they were vintage jeans and now. Re Made I. saw this on revolves website. So that's why I thought. It was revolved done is your favorite gene? Would can we say that? Like Confidently Yeah Okay then I'm GonNa go because I know this is going to be a question. About genes. Yeah. We'll just answer it now 'cause a lot of people have asked how to find the best Jean and I'm still looking at that too. I bought one pair of jeans in Thailand that tailored myself for some reason they fit great but I want to buy a new pair of jeans that feels really really good. So you think Redone Redone is the best I've lived I have a black pair a gray pair to our denim dark denim wash and a fit so good or did they fit true to size? Yes. Okay. Yeah. They do when we got that's my present to myself from my birthday. Yeah. Yeah. Like there's been like I mean there's been some like one pair I. Think it was a little bit more stiffer the Denim. So I had to go up a size and then had to get them taken in a little bit the ways but for the most part my hips and like my waist if it pretty good, you know it infant like the gap was extreme but I like them to be a little bit tighter. But yeah, I would say they're the best jeans and they have a new one a new style that just came out it's called I think it's a High Pipe Sto? Let me check. Me The wrong I need gene. So I've just been busy Marie con doing by closet every single time I look at it and sometimes on the weekends I'll just try whatever's in my closet on and then just start giving a pile too posh mark 'cause I'm like this doesn't feel amazing to me and the genes are the hardest to find. Yeah. No I know like I tried every possible gene and I was like these don't. Look good. These only hit. Look good on me these are called the redone high rise stovepipe I can't wait. Those are the best ones I have the The stone wash looking one. Yeah and they have just like one whole at the knee and the other one's just like regular but they look so getting again, you can wear them out with the booty. They look so chic with the booty. Or. Like with a pump, you know you just where like a t and like your leather jacket and you look so cool. So cool. Yeah. I cannot wait to have that. Yeah you definitely need those good genes are so hard to find I only I don't buy jeans off the rack anymore like like new I'm only buy them vintage. Trying on vintage gene sucks sometimes because it'll be like a twenty eight but it'll be tailored to a twenty four. Yeah. I don't even know what size I am I. Know I know because I used to go to wasteland. to look for Denim to and I had the same problem. But yeah, these I actually bought at Barney's before Barney's you know everything happened with Barney's but I all my jeans that I have now from Barney's but you can find them at Nordstrom. revolve has them in Neiman's has them too yeah. I I've been waiting so long to pull the trigger because I do think the redundancies are what like three hundred and twenty five or to thirty five Yeah. So I'm like Oh my God I can't but then I think I have to because they will last forever and I'll wear them. So ever that's what I'm saying like if you're going to spend your money, spend your money on pieces that are going to last you a very long time because you're getting your money's worth if you're spending your money on like jeans are thirty dollars from H. His Zora they're only going to last. So long before they start ripping or they stretch out, you know and you're like, why are these genes always stretching out? You know yeah. So. I definitely feel like you should that's a good investment piece for your closet. I'll be buying that after we're done here. This is a fun. One schuyler dot shapes asks dressing on a budget. How do you look chic? Without spending too much money. Again. You can go desire you know czar has great stuff like that. Sometimes I'm like, wow, this looks exactly like that one piece I saw at Barney's or Neiman's you know it's just like learning how to look for pieces at don't look so cheap you know. Yeah. Sorry to interrupt I. Go ahead and deeper into that. What makes apiece look cheap in your professional. I. Just like the way the stitching is or if the fabric feels like not so good and you're like, oh, feels like plastic. This. No and like you can tell to like even in jacket sometimes like the way that the material feels on the inside or just like the seems you're like, oh no, this doesn't look good. So it's just like keeping an eye for those things and You can find great things at Zara or top shop that. Don't cost so much money and you still look so chic fashion like fashionable. For this person says Allie Dot. Wang wait. You have a stylus would love to hear more about that. I think if people have similar body type to me I'm five four since you've worked with me for the past couple of years and seeing my body kind of also change in my style. Kind of develop. What would you say looks best on my body type like when you're pulling for me what type of stuff are you looking for? Specifically I think highways looks great on you and I keep saying highways but I feel like it's just such a good lake. I it's such a good style for everyone. You know because it's so flattering. It accentuates that area like tiny and then you know. Your curves and embraces your curves I feel like I always look for something. That's GonNa be flattering to your figure. So, definitely high waisted you have great legs. So I try to look for flattering dresses like short dresses. You know that also looked really good edgy pieces of course because I feel like you're a little edgy. So I try to like incorporate all those three together when I'm looking for pieces for you I'm kind of short. So I know that sometimes we have to have a lot. Yeah. So I If I guess really short when it comes to like samples, of course, if you were to have to dress me and we didn't have a Taylor, how would you make me look taller if we really loved one of the pieces Oh man that's a tough question. Goodness I'm like I can't do anything without a Taylor. If maybe it wasn't a piece that had to be tailored I wanted to look longer or something like maybe save I wanted to look like I was five seven on the red carpet. What would you dress me in? Knowing my body type. To hang that's a good question. I think I would definitely have to put you in some kind of Pant, and then just like. A cool like pant and then just making sure you wear like a like a chunky here or something. So you can look taller, but definitely a pant like a a wide legged. Awhile League Pant that would cover the he'll get high because I've done that before actually that's you just you just reminded me I've done that when I had a client and we had to go right on set and we didn't have time to have a like a Taylor Top stick the PAT on the inside and I just gave her like the biggest platform she had an Jose. You're good to go. I was just like praying to God that the Pant Student Come Undone. For you, I would definitely get a cool like why Lake Pant with a platform he'll. Hot. Yeah. Speaking of top stick because I didn't know about this until we started working together, what are a couple? We can explain a top gas which is essentially like. Heavy duty tape that holds in place whatever units double sided. So like you put it, say you're gonNA say your top is low cut and you need to like you know make sure that doesn't like pop when you're sitting, you put the tape on the inside and it sticks on both sides of the shirt. So it's six your skin and then it sticks to the shirt. So it stays in place it is the biggest lifesaver. There's something I bought it off of Amazon, but it's like a rollerball. It's kind of like top stick by in a roller bar ball format. So when I'm wearing a one piece bathing sue I just like put this on my cheek. Stick. My my body suit on it and it stays perfectly. It's. Too. I think interesting Razi I'm like I might need to put that in my kids. Do, you have any other tips on red carpet style if people can't afford styles don't have access to a stylist what are some? Good. I would say. Good places to get find options, shoreline pieces or or out of even find what to wear red carpet. On like what the event is you know because some some red carpets are more flashy than others. Just. Depending on what it is but I feel like you can go to like rental houses and you can rent a beautiful piece and you don't spend a lot of money because you're renting it. You know and they're pretty affordable like the rubies a great option like I would definitely go to the Ruby if you're on a budget you know in. You're like tight on time the rubies great is that an all I've only heard of rent the runway before the runways another good one is it the same? Thanks? Rubies rubies a rental house here in L. A. Okay So if you're in la I would suggest going to the Ruby because they have tons of options of beautiful gowns. You know and you rent it for an affordable price and you look great on the carpet you know. So you can be wearing, let's say like a Saint Laurent dress for like one hundred and fifty dollars Oh my God, my dream. One of my first big purchases was why sell shoes Oh, I don't. Wear them anymore because they're too small but I have you tried getting them stretched Oh. No. Yeah. You can get them stretch because European sizes like I have a pair of Chanel flats and they hurt my feet the first time I wore them and then I got them stretched Oh and now I can wear them when like easy no problem. I should do that one time I tried to stretch it myself when I wore like three pairs of socks and then blow dry on high he. Open it Oh my God that was no, you just have. A shoe place in the construction for you Yeah I'm fat. ooh, this is a fun question that we can. Both answer underscore will be a asks. What can you wear when there's nothing to wear what you wear when you feel like you've nothing in your closet? I go to my my to go to jeans Yep same I go to my jeans I grabbed like a white t shirt and then I throw on a jacket and like my sneakers I yeah and I'm like, okay this looks I. Guess It's okay. You know Mike I look put together and then yeah and then people are like Oh my God like you're. Really. Five minutes You know like a laser to like you can do blazer a t shirt jeans in a sneaker and you look you know like put together no problem. I always put hoops on and that's the easiest way to elevate something. That's another `nother way to elevate accessories. You know necklace I say like. If you lay it layer them right men and women totally and wear them and they look cool you know yeah and you're like Oh okay. Cool. Your outfits. Cool like you have a little like you a thing over there area. Or Lipstick to Oh, my God, I wish I used to wear a lipstick called Revlon five to five and it was like A. Specific read. Where all the time and I haven't read wore red lipin years now I always wear a nude lip. Yeah. I think red red lipstick is a good statement especially if you're just wearing jeans and shirt thrown lipsticks hoops. Lung my God like immediately you're like oh I feel. So company plainly a little bit of SAS. Great. Just a little little smidge. Going back to blazers because I know that sometimes when I put a blazer on, don't pair it. Well, it looks so business, how do you get away from making look business and more trendy I love the like right now I, love doing the belt with the blazers I feel like that's a good way like taking it. So you don't look like you have like nine five visit like office job or even if you do have an office job, he can still make the blazer look really cool. Just by doing a belt like a chunky belt you know and then just wearing a t-shirt underneath and then you just your blazer in the do the bell and it looks really cool. You can even do the blazer with a skirt to and the NYLONS. Booty. Like there's so many ways s I love that but a blazers a good staple to in your wardrobe because he can do a lot. Absolutely shorts to you can do shorts and a blazer. Cute Alec Shorts t-shirt Blazer sneakers heels booty just just anything works. My mind is going off on like what else can do. Lennon AA CG. This is a fun question I like this one. Okay. Hopefully, we can both transmit what is your number one rule of what not to do when it comes to fashion. This is a good question. I would say again I'm going to go back to what I was speaking on earlier just not wearing anything that's not flattering for your body. because. Yeah. You're not gonNA feel comfortable. You know if you're wearing something like, oh, this is a trend and then you put it on your like this does not look good on me at all. You know just sticking to things that you feel competent in. That's the biggest advice I have I would say don't take size like you were saying. So personally has everyone makes different sizes. The fabrics are different and so especially when it goes for thrift ING genes like if I fit into a thirty two to thirty two. Yeah it doesn't really matter it doesn't matter. Does it fit? That's why I always say I might. Just. Where things that are flattering and that you feel good in. You know because if you feel good in it, you're going to radiate that totally and you always say that when we're trying to pick the favorite of whatever we usually do like three. Send those pictures and the people who I'm working with has to like approve it right and. It's it's always the best litmus tests to go like do you feel good in it because you're going to have to I've talked to a bunch of people if it's from doing interviews on the red carpet imagine if I felt bad I would I wouldn't be able to do my job well, and you can tell when someone doesn't regardless if your host or you're just like you know like an average person, you can tell when you don't feel comfortable your clothes because he keep pulling on it you're just like uneasy in it. So when you wear something Regardless of what size you are that you feel confident in people are going to notice that and you're gonNA walk in a room. You're like, wow, you look amazing because you're radiating that that confidence you know you feel good and what you're wearing I think that goes onto fabrics to like you were talking about if something was Itchy, that's the thing I think when I was younger, I would just buy things because they were on sale. Yeah. Oh my God if I just never did that I would save so much money. Like even when you thrift and you're like Oh my God, this wool sweaters incredible. But if it's wall and Yuji, my skin type hates will I can't do I cannot, and so it's just knowing that and making sure that you're honest with yourself like am I going to feel great and this or do I want it because it's half off? Yeah. Yeah and it's like that's that's another thing too like when keeping keep to keep in mind when you're shopping don't just buy things because they're on sale you know like all but it's it's five ninety nine and it's GonNa. Sit in your closet for like six months and you're never gonNA wear it really. That that five hundred nine or whatever it could have gone toward something else you're aware all the time. Yeah. If you say if I saved all my five, thousand, nine, hundred close could have so many redone jeans by this point in time someone asked where do you get your inspiration from where to your fashion inspiration? Oh, man from a couple of places I usually look on bogue. Vote Dot Com I the runway I love to see like what the designers are. You know what they have going on during their shows and I get a little bit inspiration from each like each show that I look at each designer like what they're. What they're collection is also to like I love fashion books side left to look at vintage fashion books to like old Chanel old saint when I was in Paris this year, I actually went to his museum. ooh, and it was so cool because it was his actual till year that he would work out of. The sketches were on there and you saw some of his collection to like it's incredible. So it cool and you're like so because the one thing about fashion, it always comes back right Trends come back like like the nineties right now Lake friends like everything. They were friends everyone's wearing now it's been here for a while the new trend. Oh. Yeah for sure. So I always like to look at what like pass you know designers what they did and then incorporate that somehow into the now how do you know that the the next style up is coming back like do you ever think Of how to think forward like thinking the future of what's going to come back. So you can stay ahead of the curve I. Definitely that's why it's so important to like do your research, go on Vogue Gone L. go on women's wear daily because you see what the designers are creating or what the runway shows look like you're like okay. So this is coming up next you know and also to like what I love what these fashion magazine doing they show street style from different parts of the world. Cool because like Japan Tokyo, they're so. Far. Advanced in the US. You know like a lot of like even Europe to they're very Advance when it comes to fashion so I feel like just seeing like what they're wearing. You kinda like, okay. Cool. So this trend is coming back. You know what are the Baggy Pants right now like that's such a trend in that was seen like. Like last year in. Tokyo, right. You know you're like, okay I get it I. Our last question is from busy. I like this one a lot. How to update your wardrobe with things you currently own. Oh, that's a good question It's hard because it was not hard question but 'cause sometimes I'll be trying to get dressed and I'm like I hate everything that I have and sometimes I'll go. Let's see the weirdest thing. I can put together or try to do something that I haven't done before, and then sometimes I'm like Oh, this is actually very fun. Yeah I think it's just taking like in those moments like I. Don't have any where just like taking a little bread. Okay. Let me go back in here because I have mornings like that to you know but it's just playing around with what you have. To say, you have a cool pair like, okay love these genes let me see what I have in here. Oh, maybe this coup top having worn in a while you know in all this what about this? Cool I compare what this cooling denim jacket or leather jacket that I have. So I would just say just like playing around with your closet, you know with the pieces that you have and then you know you can make a new look out of what you have. You know toiling tops jackets. Jean skirts or like I. The one thing I have found myself doing as recently as like I have all this jewelry that I don't wear. Yeah. Saint L. I'm like I'm going to start wearing my jewelry. Yay. Outfit Look Different. So I would say even doing like incorporating like a piece of jewelry into your your look, it's a pair of jeans a white t shirt. All denim adding a pair hoops. or like a statement earing you know and feel like that updates, your your your look your know. So that's a good little tip. Yeah. One thing that I did a while ago was I switched all of my hangers to be reversed just so I can know when I wore something and all the pieces that were on reverses is like the weirdest way to say this story. But like I whatever I didn't wear in a two week period, I would see that hanger and I would go I need to. Find a way to wear this Mike can't then I'm going to sell it. Yeah. So I think that's a good way to not only figure out another thing to wear but also what you actually are wearing and what you don't need to keep anymore. I always say like if you haven't worn something in your closet in the last six months, get rid of it. Yeah. Because it's not going to sit there. Totally you know that's how I do it for myself. I'm like all right. I haven't worn this shirt in. Almost a year, I'm going to get rid of it and then you make room for new stuff right? You know you can go wasteland crossroads posh mark. There's so many ways where you can sell your clothes and then you get money for new stuff, right? That's I read that role somewhere to whatever you I take. One thing out. You're basically just replacing whatever you have. You don't end up with too much stuff. Yeah. 'cause it's less more less is more and that's I think a perfect place to end. Thank you so much for helping out the guys learned a lot. This has been a great lesson in fashion. I only can think of these redone jeans I am leaving right now to go buy them get them. They're like you're going to be obsessed with them. I can't wait to be obsessed with something else. Where can people find you on the Internet if they want to check out more of you, I have a website style by Rodriguez Dot Com and then on instagram it's styled by Jenny are general the why And twitter to style by Jenny are. that.

The British army doesn't give a shit they're introducing a new platoon just for those mid fits and I can't wait to tell you about it. Well I'm writing that round mean it's not okay to be fat.

Because there's zero reason not to have the Boehner for a long time. Let's start it. May The round number one we even get into the story. I WanNa ask you guys. PCS permanent change of station you guys. I'm sure Chappie all the way to Japan and I know cons for you had a house in Texas and all that stuff. Do you have any good having to move all your Oh shit stories. I was really fortunate. I never had a problem not once I was very lucky. Yeah how about you big time fraud guy. Whenever I was in and so I was going to mention one thing so I did? A PC from Fort Sill down to Texas and anyone who knows the area knows that's someone of a short drive so I did all my big stuff. The movers came into care that. But then I also did part of move in my own car because you can get paid for doing the move by yourself and A. and something that people would do often. I never did this. I never did this. They would take forty five pound plates from the gym and put those in their car to make their car heavier as ZIP. They were carrying more stuff. So you get more money right the heavier because you can either choose. You did a mix of both but you can either choose to have. Movers move for you or you can do it yourself. And they'll pay you to do it yourself right. They give you a certain amount of days to do it. So a certain amount of like overnights At hotels like Ma stipend for that and the heavier car. So I heard stories of people putting sandbags in their car the weights all that shit so chat guys from the British Army. We're gonNA talk about later. You can hop okay my a favorite PCs story. When I was moving from Virginia here I knew exactly where I was going to go. I was taken over the rent of another guy that I was in Iraq with He. He was moving duty stations from here to another spot and I was coming in. He had just bought a house like a year and a half ago and he was telling me about it was like we'll do it and so I don't have to look for a place I've seen your house house online. Our rented if I could just go at your mortgage you don't gain money but you don't lose money and I'll take good care of your house. He was like done so I had my place all set up before I even got from Virginia sight unseen drove down here. And whenever you get to your duty station they have during moves the budget of where you can stay as larger you know the government rates like one hundred twenty dollars in San Antonio but during move rate goes all the way up to two hundred eighty bucks. A night is what you can spend so we we came in here I. I've told the story before where I had my buddy Christie as who was killed in Afghanistan. He met me in my driveway with a like a bunch of marines. They all unloaded all of my Shit into in my house in like fifteen minutes my wife and I took the U-HAUL and we turned it in and then we went to this place called the Marriott here in San Antonio that has like a Lazy River A.. ABC Golf Course and it was the first weekend that we're together as husband and wife and our new house and we got the state an awesome place and I was like man and it's all because the lackland in the military base on Lackland was all closed up. There was no room in the end just like on Christmas Eve. And so we didn't have to stay at this shitty gateway way in on Lackland Air Force Base. And we've got to go stay at a bad ass hotel because at the time I was just an e five I had never stayed in Nice. That was the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in. Oh yeah by. Far was the same way so when we stepped in. We're like damn we are fucking L. I. V. I. You're gone you're living it up. Well I'll just going to say one last thing. It should be mentioned the movers. Typically who come are so freaking efficient fast. I remember I had an entire house. If elected it in thirty minutes. They packed fucking trash. Yeah they'll pack your trash if it's there they pack it. I've heard stories of people who are like yeah. I left my car keys on the kitchen table and next thing you know they're gone and I'm like Oh my God they. Movers just wrapped them up. The bone grabbed them in a box and people had somebody one guy I served by said he had dog food still in the dog bowl when he impacted they just packed shit right up stop. The movers come through like wildfire pace. So being in the military is something that if you are in the military or you're a military brat it's every few years you've got to do it so almost people tend to not really move much in their lifetime. If you're in the military which might be the most wasteful thin the military. Does it really might be yeah. There's no reason to do that like you're an eat like lance corporal. Kate you'RE GONNA be Lance Corporal Kate at a different place and they're going to spend fifteen thousand dollars to move you whenever you could. Just be Corporal Kate on Pendleton to that this this idea that we have to move troops around every three years is insane. It's just so stupid. Well I'd never give thought to that but you're absolutely right. What is the benefit unless you're going to a significantly -nificant different type of unit or your changing branches or something? There's nothing available for you to move up at your current duty station. There's no reason to leave. It's a lackey thing knows. I think I think captain above. Like if you're moving up to like a command level like exo position in our higher like if you need to have that spot in that expertise or first sergeant and above but underneath underneath that just get stationed somewhere and if you want to stay there because there's plenty of people that Wanna stay unfortunately for three families in California regardless things are as they are and they L. had to do a pcs move so get into this story. Then a California man has been arrested for allegedly stealing a big rig with a fifty three foot trailer containing containing the belongings of military families. The California Highway Patrol reported this past Friday. Michael Travis forward was arrested after the stolen rig was found in the Central Valley really city of manteca California and about ninety percent of the stolen cargo was found in his home nearby. Can I just say do a military Joe. Quick sure you go then I'll go go ahead. Okay Okay Michael Travis forward more like Michael Travis in the rear with all the gear. Oh all right and I was GONNA say anyone who goes by three full names is either a criminal or an assassin Michael Travis Ford well thankfully they found all of his stuff but fourteen of stolen guns. He's still fourteen guns from that cargo. The three different families. They're all still missing guessing of you starts and local pawn shops. You'll find exactly where those went But making Mr forward even more backwards. He stole the tractor trailer containing these troops goods on Christmas Day of all days. What grinch the trailer contained all of the belongings and property of three active duty military families? Please who are in the process of active duty relocations. The property had a total value of over one hundred thousand dollars. The truck was found three days later. Authorities searched forward thome and found most of the gear as we said they also found a stolen Harley. Wow on the side and if you look at the photos of what was in the truck before the movie you see like John Deere tractor a little kids bicycles on all sorts of stuff this guy and what does this creepy loaner man like. He has three families worth of Shit in his. I'm I'm GonNa Imagine how fun that would be to go off to get. This is true. It's what was that show. Everybody was obsessed with where they opened the storage orch facilities and then they get to stay storage guy. Basically did a little stores goofing on these but I mean on Christmas alone and you already in the criminal life and you can get one of those things because you never know what you're going to stumble into it and you got three families. Were at the shit. Yeah you're going to get your bike here and there but what if you get like something really cool you never know. Fourteen guns burying the lead to. That's a lot a lot of guns that are missing still such a crapshoot though gotten three families worth of just absolute oh crap but it looks like. He's got some good stuff to the photos that I was looking at John Deere looks brand new. It looks beautiful all you could really cripple on with that thing but the thing that sucks the these three families are moving the tractor trailer. I guess it was parked in a lot on Christmas Day. Because it's Christmas Day I guess so the move was put on hold for these three so the tractor and the guy just steals it Q.. Imagine finding out over the Christmas holiday that like all your possessions are gone and you have children and you have families and you have an all your shit is just gone just really sad. ooh That's a big thing that people will get stolen is like the back of an eighteen wheeler like it happens all the time like whenever essentially made a movie about it and and my dad was a truck driver my biological truck driver and one time he was hauling Jimmy Dean sausage entire eighteen wheeler Jimmy Dean sausage and he called me up and he's like. Hey you're not gonNA believe this stole a bunch of the sausage sausage. All over like eighteen wheeler sausage. I mean because it's probably like it sight unseen stealing so then you go to the back and you're like what am I going to get. You're hoping if it's a cooler truck maybe beer or something like that that you could sell. But you're GONNA fucking sausage. I can't imagine there's much of a black market for sake. So those big companies that have hall that Hall stuff at that amount they account for a certain level of loss. I remember friends of mine. Close close friends from high school. Their family was in the shipping and warehousing business and they had a big deal with Miller cores course so anytime. I was having a party over their warehouse. And it's like. Oh bumped into that a pallet a beer. You can't once one package of beer. Is this damage. You cannot sell the entire ballot so we would have entire Palette for full of beer. So that your dad took that sausage and it was none the wiser for dean. Welcome to Barstools. Ars Tools fraud Moving Rod podcast if you are or with free beer sausage but basically this is kind of common you know getting stolen like that's not comma the people are having difficulties with pcs moves is common so we asked the CBC followers what some of their craziest and moving moments where and the answer is did not disappoint point GonNa read a couple of the best ones at the firms said a friend of mine was saying from Hawaii to conus which conus is continental United States. Yes they're moving back to the states so her goods were transferred via connex box on a ship. The ship hit some rough weather and lost several boxes over the side. Due to high waves including including hers the navy basically told her to find as many receipts as she couldn't file her claim so authorship bonus story though but on the similar vein at Scott's jacket said I was stationed in Gitmo in two thousand thirteen and the barge bringing our PCs item sank. We lost everything holding guys that this is a tough one too at Bryce Johnson said I just completed my final very last. PCS and they lost the parts box. So you know when you're moving and you put all the nuts and bolts and screws and this and that and those little Ziplock baggies and you tape them to stuff so you don't lose them. I guess they had a box. Where all that stuff went for everything in the entire House that needed to be assemble right now? Most of my furniture is in pieces scattered around on my house. They lost that box. The only boxer Oh and they knew the boxes go on Friday but they didn't tell us until they delivered the following Tuesday at two Raines said my stuff was sent from Colorado to Honduras instead of Virginia. Does that count class. I'm going to I read all these. At gears. Up Flaps Up Katie Higgins Cook said I was driving Katie Higgins. She has an awesome story. Katie Higgins Cook. She used to be the pilot for the big C.. One thirty that the blue angels fly fight average liver fat Albert all right well. She has a great story. She was driving. She says I was driving my rental on the island in Corpus Christi to base to check in for flights school and I saw a moving truck on fire in the middle of the bridge. All my stuff was on that a truck holy shit and sustained damage. Luckily I was poor and it was all I can. And they reimbursed me but imagine moving and like be like. Oh that sucks. That'd be like wait a minute. That's my God at Barrett sled. There is like what she said. There is Kinda true because if you're a lower level enlisted or you're like a lower officer Sir a lot of the furniture that you have is most likely not going to be expensive. You're going to have a bunch of hand me downs shit from other people that were moving. So if you're like oh now I get to get a brand new bed. That feels like a stuntman brand new couch a lot of people in this position you watch your Shit Burn. That's probably the first time you've had a new couch in your life. Yes there's one on on the opposite end I didn't include in here but one guy it was like we our families like airline like Big Beautiful Oak table. Somebody they the. Movers put a chimney on top of it. And it just just like scratched it to fuck see Barrett C M Barrett Seventy six PCS related. We had to move three times in three years because the owners of the House we were renting being from chose to keep our rent money rather than pay the mortgage. JEEZ times in a row all the same post he said. I don't know what you get out of that. Ruining your credit like that. I know pretty silly silly. But then at T. p. m. i.. Pat The third all right. My driver quit halfway through a cross country. Move Halfway and said you know what go. Oh I think I'm done. They had to like forrest. Gump I know thank you. They had to load everything from his truck to a new truck. They didn't tell me until delivery delivery day. I'm still finding things missing. Oh and they bought someone else's Antique Oregon Thinking. It was mine so you should it's gone. Here's this antique organ. What and then finally at Seventeen O Aka? Oh Breezy said. My stuff was delayed two weeks when it got here. The movers started breaking down to me about his dead fiance and how he had to spend his own money to get my stuff here. Oh and he lost by bed and broke my sixty five inch. TV To have your PCs mover having a full mental breakdown down the way not great to that. I'd probably say it'd be a little heartless. Say I'm I'm really sorry but you broke my stuff another another one I didn't include was this guy. said he had some very fancy expensive. Liquor has friends got him because he was discussing is leaving so he had it out because he was going to put it in his own. Like certain things you transport in your own car that are are fans and the movers. He looks gone the move or so ago. We thought you left that out for us. They drank it they. So they're packed. Packed the fucking dog food. But that's a great tip if you are moving on pcs move and you have stuff that is very valuable or cannot be replaced. Yeah move that yourself. Do not trust the movers because God flow. Whenever I moved down here I had my car on the back of the Utah whenever I was driving down? And somehow there's a leak that got into my trunk so so my hard drive with all my pictures on it from my deployments and shit like that was in there all my original documentation from like awards and Shit like that my original Purple Heart. My original like all the other stuff all destroyed. I don't have any vegetables. Yeah that sucks but at least at least you know you're not alone. MISERY MISERY LOVES COMPANY WHEN IT COMES TO PCS teams like so many people had these horrible still are as dude. I will say though when you think about moving. It's probably one of the worst things have to do especially if you have a lot of stuff but the fact that you can move for free in the military. That's pretty good cost for free. Yeah that's it. No way enjoys that shit all right. Let's move on around to all right round number two because Emma sucker for romance and I can't help it. I saw this photo and it kind of like took me back to the zone. homecomings I mean how good of a feeling is it. It's pretty fucking great and I know you have both had them to. Did you have people waiting for you when you got home. nope okay. Aw So my parents. They came that day but it was really tough to know exactly the time so their flight didn't get in. We're getting to the parade field. And my one buddy goes you. UNHOOK my parents. My Buddy's parents and then my parents met me at my house at home and they met me in my house so that was a little bit delayed but the I didn't have anyone there at the time and not everybody that that was the biggest bullshit the way that canine used to do deployments because we didn't deploy is like a big unit because there's only so many so you had grab some from Cherry points. I'm from penalties from Yuma from Okinawa and then we would meet in a central location and then fly out whenever we came back in all the guys that were stationed guys and ladies that were stationed on the junior cherry point. Whenever we landed in Cherry Point North Carolina? All of their families were there and so like everybody else's didn't have there so you you had essentially half the unit was having all these homecomings and the other the rest of us were just like fumbling our dicks like just trying to get all the dogs in order. Yeah it's different for everybody but in like not everybody has people waiting or whatever but I got lucky for mine. The first time I came home my parents were there and then my aunt party pay Chicken Parm for you came all the way out to California my aunt. Helen came out from Jersey. My brother was there so it was nice to have my fiance at the time was was still deployed but when he came home that time he came home a few months later we were deployed at the same time but he was in a separate area for me but it was one of those we. We're young and stupid and we wrote each other letters every single day. I have like hundreds of them and like we ran in love. Handwritten and then we would have to wait months at a time. Because we're both in the boonies Monica. The convoy would come through and you get to sit there and rip open like like thirty something letters from that month and see what they were up to and Blah Blah Blah. It was so romantic and so intense because we were young and stupid but whatever and so when he finally came home that day US ladies. I don't know what you guys do. I went and got my hair done that morning. I got my nails done I picked out my outfit a week in advance. I wanted him to get off that bus and see like the most beautiful version of the humanly possible and it was like the best fucking thing too like they get off the vine them up and they release them and then you finally get to hold them and it's like internally you're like those dog videos of the home grabbing your here at home I got home I got home I got and you just want to just you just want to be all over them you just want. I can't believe you know how to express yourself you're safe. I love you you're safe. You're just like going crazy and it's this intense amazing feeling so I saw this picture that was making the rounds on social media and for the record now divorced. It didn't work out really. Oh no no. It didn't work out for us but still the memory is still like really. It's still like a great thing you know. It doesn't negate picture but its name. Oh these are or not divorced. Oh I'm talking about myself but anyway that these two are GonNa make tell because here. We have Let's see Casey Borden and she rocked an outfit that is making waves online at the homecoming of her significant other. When her man Air Force Captain Daniel Lago Gumersindo Thunderbolt pilot out of Moody Air Force Base? Georgia returned home. Borden was wearing Jean Jacket with you. Do the sound better than each apps. Burr per down the sleeves. That's the infamous sound of the thunderbolts. Thirty Mike Mike Rotary Cannon which is able to spit three thousand nine hundred rounds per minute and and that so that that jet pilots that plane when it comes down a couple times on our first deployment that thing by everybody I even I got Boehner. You cannot l. but you're like Oh fuck. That's awesome so that. Burt sound like it's kind of like her. It's kind of like pop. Culture thing within the military. Everybody knows it so she's wearing this Jean Jacket with that down the sleeves. He's in his eight ten pilot. I was GONNA COSTUME YOU ASK DO. He's in his blocking uniform. It looks bad ass. He's got the sunglasses on. She's wearing aviators. The eight ten Jean Jacket. He's got flowers in his hand and he's got his arm around her Scott her hand around his neck. They make an outright in front of this airplane. I saw it and I thought my goodness I mean what a good looking couple guys. Got The pilot haircut. Well well. Obviously the Jean Jacket is flames. My only critique would be better if he had aviators on himself Oakley pro glasses other than that. This picture Chris Wallace. He's holding the flower she brought him. Lips are locked. My goodness imagine imagine the carnal relations that all on how he didn't even get to that evening. I the only thing I would have done differently if I was the Fella Outa had my hand draped around her little bottom store. One grab when you're wearing a flight you gotta you gotTa gripped cheek whole grip on the cheek. Well maybe it was her dad taking this picture. Yeah no I don't think he would care. You gotta understand where he's coming from anyway. I just loved her dad's probably like grabbing dude. UH-HUH I think so many people we don't talk about the homecoming style so many women if you're at a military homecoming. It's almost like when you're watching. People go to prompt the outfits are to the nine yes superfan but we also got us because this is where romanticizing it because there's still that lance corporal with a spouse that looks like absolute dog shit. We can't act like it's all G Q models. There's some busted ass ladies that are there as well and it's like when the ladies come back some busted dudes. They're there to looking like that guy from the Pepsi Commercial. Absolutely I mean that's true. I was probably one of them when life. My ass came home but the thing is as long as you think you look good and after that period of time on deployment anything looks. Yes you could be where. It's Victoria. Secret Love Spell. And you're like Oh damn here. We go go so far as to say if he had the aviators on this picture would be on par with the picture from World War you too with the sailor and the nurse or the sailor and the woman in Times Square. That's how good this picture is. It's just a good picture and I. I don't know there's something about it. The I love that. She got the customer Jean Jacket. Get you to waiting for your significant others to come from a homecoming and you could customize anything down this leave what would it be. I'll as an artilleryman. It would have to be boom boom boom boom on the artillery. All right I like it. My husband might be canine but I do it Doggie style. Oh that's a lot of words but I can get it on their brand I can't think of a horned up for homecoming I. We're just having a yet down La- sleeves yet a yellow Katie motivator. All right. Let's move onto round number. Three number three comes to us from the Guardian and it's about our friends from across the pond. They say overweight. Unfit and sharrock roots are being given a a second chance to join the British army via four week. Boot camp as a military seeks new kway new ways to increase troop numbers and it's understrength armed forces the solar development courses what what is being called and it I ran in September and it is designed to help borderline recruits. Make the grade in his one of the range of measures aimed at stemming ten N. percent shortfall and a fully trained personnel. So basically. They're having trouble with people joining the British armed forces and I read a tweet about this underneath the article. And they're saying well. Yeah because most of our university is free. Our healthcare is free so a lot of the recruiting tools that other nations us. They don't have to worry about it here. So why would you join. I mean when you're talking about what a recruiter. Whenever they stick out those little tabs what are you gonNa join for travel pay college and all those things England kind of has that figured out on a national level so it is difficult to recruit somebody unless they are doing it just for like national interest for the most part? Well all all these people that are trying to join they weren't there wasn't people that wanted to join but somewhere overweight and some were unfit and some were slower and things like that. I don't I have a problem with doing a boot camp for those that need to lose some weight or something like that like you can have remedial fitness. And if you WANNA get in shape and you want to go to boot camp and they help you get is your diet right. They help you exercise and get you into shape and then you monitor along the way I think that's a great thing and in fact I think America should do that. I have some 'cause we have we've Keeton. I have interviewed somebody for rough and rowdy that was he was well over the standard and he would have to drop twenty thirty pounds on his own to get in. I don't think that we should do that that away. If you want to go in and be like okay you can come to us at bootcamp. We'll train you. You'll go on our diet regimen and once you actually meet the standard you you can begin recruit training i. That'd be fantastic. It's kind of like a much more structured pooley program. It's like for the Puli program you also had to get shipped off somewhere to to do whatever and they're saying. Another part of it is that we're just not as healthy as we used to be so right and some the issues with the overweight. I have zero problem with and there's another one they said that if you're shy I like some people were shot and they have trouble joining the military. Go in there and get that confidence up and go back to a regular basic tune. I think that's good. They're starting to have some waivers that might be troublesome though like I don't know if you can go and have people that have like chronic asthma and be like we're going to try to work around this issue in the military. We're GONNA get the money looking bang as they could fix it a couple of weeks. I have asthma like I have asthma now. Did you have asthma marines. No well yes I did but I was in such good shape that it kind of sports do asthma. Okay so but they win away because I was in good shape goes off central on it and when I get fat like I am now our out of shape like I am now like it is a struggle still for me but if you can get that under control aw fun but I think that this I I was originally going to shit on this topic as a whole but just reading it. I think it's a good idea. It's a good idea to mostly because because there's so many people out there that don't know how to diet properly and don't know how to exercise properly so they had that supervision they probably especially if they're young enough when you're young and you have a more or less healthy body you can bounce back very quickly you can get in shape very quickly as opposed to somebody who's thirty or older so I think it's a good idea to have this program in place I I also like that. They said the army recruiters there did research that shows that fifty four percent of eighteen to twenty four year olds believe a lack of self confidence holds them back and this course whatever whatever it is it addresses that psychological issue and helps them develop and be more confident. I know one of the reasons I have thought about joining the military like before college because I wasn't sure I wanted to call it but I was like I can't do that like I had already. Yeah I didn't think I could do it until like the power of shame. Propelled me to do later in life but like you you know. It's one of those things that I think. That could be a really positive thing so I don't know interested to see how that works out. And if they are right about the confidence because there's one line and they're recruiting pitch pitch where they talk about. There's a woman who's dressed up in makeup and she looks beautiful and then there is a pint of beer on the bar and they talk about. You could be confident for a season or you could be confident. Often it for the rest of your life if you join the military and learn like our leadership skills and I think that there's elements of truth to that like where you had this inherent confidence about you because you've been through some really tough stuff. Yeah no it's it's a byproduct of anytime you endure something that's difficult and you're able to get through that whether it's you know on your own or with the help of others surrounding lifting you up at Stephanie. Going to give you the confidence that won't go away ever because you Never GonNa Forget those memories one. Sorry the the few the proud the Super Fat I was GONNA say. I'm sure though 'cause this is a group that's like not bootcamp Brady short a little bit goofy. I'm picturing maybe maybe the kid from little giants who gets the snap bubble. I'm bet you being an instructor at this school is Goddamn to light. I Bet Ed Challenge show to be the most difficult screening for like a job placement that you have because if you like say for instance. I've told told stories about what I was like. Whenever I was like the company you place me in that position I would fail? You need. Somebody like corporal. Kate his nice and and leading them along the way and and having a softer touch and then whenever they get to like the normal recruit training. Then you you ramp it up a a notch but that would be tough because you'd have imagine what the normal instructors are saying whenever the basically the island of Misfit Toys is walking by Gordon Child like Oh but I would also take that as a source of pride if you took these misfits and turn the good soldiers. Like I've mentioned this guy before government name a huge specialist Aaron really wanted to become an NCO and he had everything working for him. It was just. He was overweight. So I personally took it under my wing and said we're going to get your weight and order. We're going to get fit and then eventually he did and he rose the ranks to NCO. I wouldn't be surprised. These knee seven by now. Hey guess who led Santa's Sleigh Rudolph use the misfit. There you go worked out pretty Goddamn Wolfram L. friend so hard to argue with that around for longtime stool by Frick Rudolph the red-nosed Reindeer. He was a newspaper Guy. Yeah he really pissed off Jones Structure Sergeant Watson. Did that would be a great name though Sergeant Sergeant Blitzen God forget it I was drawn to slay. `sort he said Rudolf. What is wrong with your nose? Rudolph we'll play those fucking radio DOC. Okay Hey hey hey I Luga square root level Rudolph Camario over there playing reindeer games like nobody sees you standing over their damn nose outta rugs who. Hey you go get your corporal. Goget Your Corporal Roy Damn now actually crying omiss that title. Oh yeah the course after all that we have the most serious topic on onto Iran. Okay number four. It's been a pretty crazy week as we all know And a lot of people have been asking us for updates on the biggest story of the New Year so far so here. It goes June marines for three six still have not found those rifles that were missing on December eighteen and according to several DMZ chaps received after our last episode. We got the facts entirely really fucking wrong. Who knows how we know that they are still missing terrible? anyways that being said now that you know we got that wrong. Here's our take on her on. Here's our expert opinion on what's going on first. Let's start off by addressing the most pressing questions we've been getting on social media with a little bit of mail call because a lot of people have been tagging us in the news story saying what's your take on this. What do you think about this? Please tell us you are the all knowing. CPT of course. We're experts on everything thank you. Do you want to read the first question that we got here. Captain Cons. Yes this game from at sixty nine. Wow where does the newly formed Space Force Fall into all this geopolitical drama Rama. Great question at C.. Sixty nine Getting this a lot and clearly our average or adversaries forgot that we had a space for US otherwise they wouldn't have have caused any trouble in the first place I think so yeah. I don't know where they fall into it yet but I think it'll be a big win for us. Probably so the next question comes from former West Point guy football guy number nine. This conflict. Escalates how will it affect next year's west point football season. Well I'm not really. We sure how this would affect it. Some are saying it would propel us to national championship. Because we'd get all the best recruits and completely turn around the season we had this year so I'm hopeful that it has a positive effect burner count. I don't know what you're talking about All right finally at PFC commenter could still continuing to post tick tock in uniform. Get me out of deployments get drafted asking for a friend okay. Second CD burner account. Nice Try Brennan. No it will not get you out of anything. So those are the burning questions people I want to know that was terrible space fucking anus. I tried if I make goes up I did. I made those all up. That was terrible and real news though. Here's some of our latest Katie. Wine wrote those last night just so we know Katie Nike. That's what they call Katie Cabernet Cabernet. I had a little bit of wine watching in the Eagles lose and I had a little too much wine and I was like a script that and so Golden Globes next year. Maybe I'll be there anyways in the real news much less us fun even though I would say that was more painful than fun. real news. Here's some of the latest developments in the aftermath of the January third trump ordered drone strike on Iran's ONS top military guy unit case Sulejmani KSM Sulejmani trump said that and also this one two kids Q. U.. You D S Cuts Gut's Giffen Jif the quids commander. I'm GONNA come into the quids. Commander had been planning an imminent attack on US US diplomats and forces in Iraq so this was the result. And if you want to know more about that because people were saying like how could it be legal that trump would. There's a really interesting article article. Bu Retired Captain Lawrence Brennan on its military dot Com. Why that action was lawful? If you WANNA check it out he goes in explains like why. This was allowed. Aleka technically it is lawful. It was allowed to happen. It's interesting to it. I I always reference this Guy Gary Soa smile professor he's one of the preeminent authorities on the law of war and he used as the example. Let's say the General Milley. Our current chairman of Joint Chiefs of staff was killed by an Iranian bomb. Outside of Dole's airport. What we call we call it? Murder in an act of war could be described as assassination and the difference. Being with what happened with Solomon is that there was an imminent attack according to what our teller that's what president trump is saying. So that's the differentiate between the nation and a lawful killing them this gentleman right. There was some nefarious plans in the works there but in the day sense we know that things have continued to to get crazy over the weekend. Sola money's funeral procession started on Sunday and Iranian state TV estimated that millions of mourners came out across across the country especially in the cities. They had two cities that they were taking his body through and then two more today to pay their respects as the remains were paraded through the streets. Not Not sure how much I trust or Manian state TV but the photos and videos from it looked like the response has been absolutely massive. We're also not sure if this forced like if you have to go out there and do that that too. I mean I could definitely see that type of thing happening. And it's a big event and they know like if you're if you're in Iran now you know that something big is looming blooming and you want to show like national support even if you're probably if you don't agree with some of the things that he did you're out there looking and saying it's a big event of place it is a big event and and also he you know things have maybe shifted and changed but people were holding his Portugal off because he was one of the country's most popular figures during the Iran Iraq core in from nineteen eighty to nineteen eighty eight. He was a huge hero of that so other generations may remember him differently than the younger generation. do or this or that. So there's a lot to it and demonstrators also carried Red Shiite flags which traditionally symbolize both. The spilled blood of someone unjustly killed any call for vengeance. Chance of death to America were hot ticket item Both yesterday and I'm sure today I wrote that blog. I wrote the blog when it initially happened. I said in the blog that I thought it was kind of like secretary. Mattis would be killed old while he was still secretary. And I think that's really apt like I think that that has turned out to be true that he's beloved like Mattis was right are Madison's like amongst the military crowd and the civilian population so Iran's supreme leader vowed severe revenge and declared three days of mourning which again the country is still in Also on Sunday in the face of growing Iraqi anger over the strike. The country's parliament in Iraq urged the government to oust roughly five thousand two hundred American troops. So well also in Iraq and this is the part. I'll be honest. I wasn't fully understanding. Maybe because Iraq didn't know that we were going to do that. And they feel slighted as well well and it it puts tensions between those two countries who already have a history in a weird spot. So I don't fully understand that I'll be completely honest But on top of demonstrators in Iran Iran and parliament members in Iraq. Coming us. We've got some problems stateside guys we've been hacked. We've been buyer an Iranian hackers use technology that we can only assume as in one thousand nine hundred seventy s three thousand textures Texas instruments. Calculator taped potato. What's that shutout boo? Bliss shoutout moves to have a US government web page over the weekend. They posted an image of a bloody donald trump receiving Iranian fist to the face captioned with pledges for revenge and the website. They chose to hack hold onto your Dixon vaginas because it was the site that we as Americans rely on every day the Federal Depository Library Bray Program website. Not Yes I'm sorry us. Yes on of the group which calls itself Iran cybersecurity group packers. There's appears unlikely to be working on Iran's behalf but they said this is only a small part of Iran's cyber ability so stay tuned because next they're gonNA come for the American Dental Association Government site who knows. It's GonNa be rough so you can play crickets there that they really did say that though this is the only we've only just begun like okay. Look era so bad. If you're going to take over do something funny like it said taken can over by Iranian hackers like. Oh grow up in the task bar like what a shitty. Take some time. If you're going to take the time to hack something. Make a better photo shop. I mean it just. This looks at least a gift or something. Yeah it was very weird. It was very like nine thousand nine hundred eighty s looking like elect. That's even less impressive than when celebrities. Liberties get their twitter accounts have Mariah Carey saying she wants to give eminem her push sites like way better than that. Maybe that was empty. I duNno causing So moving onto that since we're already covering the worldwide web let's head over to twitter where trump caused a stir with these two doozies of of tweet storms in particular. I up from Sunday afternoon. These media posts. He tweeted this out these media posts. He's talking about his tweets will serve as notification nations to the United States Congress that should Iran strike any. US person or target. The United States will quickly fully strike back and perhaps in a disproportionate portions manner. Such legal notice is not required but is given nevertheless I wanNA hear. I hate the fact that we're doing all this on twitter. I hate that it comes across on twitter. That's how we're doing presidential decrees also hate the fact that the House Foreign Affairs Committee responded this media post will will serve as a reminder that the war powers reside in the Congress and the United States Constitution and that you should read the war power. Act And you're not a dictator. I I'm just so fucking tired tired of government agencies using twitter up a way to go at each other a fucking stop. It's not professional at all. I mean what what the presidents with a real shit is fucking. Yeah tell of via twitter but what I think. The president is referring to. Things have escalated since nine eleven but in two thousand two the authorization for use of military force gave the president a lot. More Leeway to react without getting Congress's approval and that's what he's referring to in this situation addition I just think like trap set on on both sides. It's like like to me. It's such a slap in the face to people who are real whose lives are really on the line and all this which is ultimately the lower enlisted listed in the military people who are doing whatever anyways then and the people like. Have you guys seen that map with Iran going at it with Iran. There's so so many bases that are just on the outskirts of Iran that have tons of military personnel like cutter has thirteen thousand Kuwait has thirteen thousand. There's so many military. Remember that are gonNA close stroke striking distance it is unbelievable like the provocation. That's taking place just on twitter. I if you want to be a ball stress commander in chief. I have zero problem with that. Like when President Bush got into the Oval Office and he sat down in front of the resolute desk and he looked Iraq in Afghan in the phase after nine eleven and was like we're coming for you mother fuckers essentially. I love that at the time. But it's like we have so many people on the ground we've been there for nineteen years. Can we just act like adults and trying to get this figured out without saying that we're GONNA attack fifty two different places and have a response that is non. What was the word that he used? He he said that it is non. Let me find it fuck disproportionate. Yeah it might be a disproportionate response. That's a war crime like you can't say we're do. war-cries is the United States. Speaking of later that night trump trump doubled down on his claim that he would target Iranian cultural sites if Iran retaliated for our killing of their top military guy He said this is three tweets tweets. I'm GonNa read them all cuts Ron Talking very boldly about targeting certain USA assets as revenge for our ridding the world of their terrorist leader. Who had just killed an American badly wounded many others not to mention all the people he had killed over his lifetime including hundreds of Iranian protesters? He was already attacking our embassy and preparing for additional hits and other locations. Iran has been nothing but problems for many years. Let the serve as a warning that if Iran strikes any Americans American assets we have targeted fifty two Iranian sites representing the fifty two American hostages taken by Iran many years ago some at a very high level and important to Iran and the Iranian culture are and those targets and Iran itself will be hit very fast and very hard the USA. Wants no more threats to me if you if there was anybody in Iran Iran who is just an innocent bystander. And you see that. Now you're fucking pissed you've chosen your side to me. First of all under international laws attacking cultural sites is a war crime. I don't doubt as him same cultural sites though. I know I said Iran culture. I think you could attack something that means a lot to the culture. That isn't necessarily a cultural site if that makes sense but he says you know targeted fifty two they already have the sites picked up reading it. I don't read that. As has a culture sites I say towards the language correct and he he clarified it on Air Force One whenever he talked to reporters he said No. I'm talking talking about the cultural sites Dr People we can go. After their cultural sites worth noting secretary of State Mike Pompeo walked back on those tweets and said that whatever was done in any military engagement it would be within the bounds of law but to me that right there God public opinion is so important and stuff and like I to me that is just like now. There's I think people forget. There's also lots of like plenty of innocent bystander. Just innocent people. That's the worst part of all this. Who who are civilians there who are just like I don't know I just the whole thing just felt so ugly and so like hopefully if we could if we can hope unlike good hoping that they see this and they're like fuck maybe he's not messing around maybe we don't retaliate and do something different? Like maybe it does serve a purpose this of like being a preemption instead of like a preemptive strike. It's a preemptive tweet where they know that gift something happens. We have the power we have the ability that we're we're GONNA fuck you up big time so serious happened and I wanted to fucking reason I'd be like good. We do one thing. They hit one of these sites. Now it's all let. Let's fucking already responded by taking out top guy. I just feel like I don't know. It's just very stressful. I mean the other thing. I keep going on stressful. Yeah you're absolutely right it definitely is but the other thing you go and keep going back to Pompeo Milly Esper- three very very smart individuals with a ton of military experience geopolitical political experience that are in his ear hopefully and hopefully he's listening to them and clearly. Not but I know I disagree. I disagree I don't think he would just be doing these things. Willy Nilly because I think he really likes those three gentlemen otherwise they wouldn't be in those positions in everything he said about them so I think he is listening to them and I'm and I'm giving hope that he is and and one other thing I heard from someone in the eighty second who has said everything that's going on over there right now is being sensationalized in our media and it's not nearly early as contentious over there were made to believe it is right now well definitely is being made seem that it's contentious and it is. It's very stressful. It's stressful as fuck. I'm I'm worried about my friends who are still serving. I don't know and all all this develops intentions rise. Thousands of troops are set to be deployed to the Middle East among them. More than three thousand five hundred Fort Bragg soldiers many of them from the immediate response force of eighty second airborne As as cons just mentioned there and there's also a group of around two hundred from the seventy Fifth Ranger Battalion Red Ranger Regiment intimate heading out and the navy amphibious assault ship with thousands of Marines on board will skip plan training in Africa to head that way as well and I'm sure across all the branches. There's there's a lot of things getting set in motion so online military and civilian alike were arguing. There's a ton of world war three and draft dodger jokes The US feel about them. Some of them are fights. It's funny and I think it's people trying to keep things. I saw a really know what I what I like about this conversation so far because we do. And if you've listened to a long for a long time there was a time on the show where we talked a lot more about politics. And what's going on with the president and like how elections and shit like that and we don't do that now but I think that the conversation that me kate and cons just had is definitely a reflection of what's happening like an platoons like when you're signing when you're doing things not everybody agrees some people are left. Some people are right in. That is the way that the military works except for. They're probably a lot more bombs going on or you know like a a lot more. Fuck you bitch going on and I think that that's the way that that it's going to work as far as the war three memes. I there was one that popped opt. It's like if you get somebody to decide I if they've never served and they're joking about war three or laughing hysterically if you have served and you have war three I I think this is kind of this. Might be one of the first times online in a long time that I was like a military gatekeeper right. There was here at work like certain people are like oh BMI skit about world war three. And I'm like I don't know I'll just say flat out. I didn't really like that skit. What kind of bothered me? I am generally. I'm not sure the one that I liked liked was like seven eleven. You get the Giant Cup and you can hit to the like Soda Tabs at the same time as the one soda flavor was like laughing at World War Three memes and the other Soda Oda Flavor. That was getting in the Cup at the same time. Also being worried about world war three like I don't know it's it's I think it's the only reason why didn't mind the skit because we talked about it and as ubt group chat. The only reason why I didn't mind is because you could tell somebody like Mantis wasn't ready. Did Not want to. Everybody was scared for him. Big Scared for him going Ford like even though it was making light of what the situation was. It's still a situation that like really that you have to keep an eye on because you're going to a large scale conflict or oh you're on the brink of a large-scale skilled conflict. That shit is scary and even if you bring it out like to the vision via comedy I think that's that's fine. If if if they were like all hail yeah now matters is going to go fuck some people up maybe a little different slightly important to note to while I will say that. I don't think it's impossible that another large scale conflict could happen it might. I don't think we will ever especially in our lifetime. See a conflict on the scale of a World World War. Knock on wood. I've that's what they said after World War One the ward after World War One the League of nations kind fellowship. But I think you've seen now with everything that's gone on in the world where they're at post World War Two since the United Nations was formed in one thousand nine hundred five. I think you've seen times where there was potential for a world war and that was quelled because of the amount of communication that occurs. Now you have to remember back in World War One the way you communicate with another country you send a diplomat over to another country to kind kind of talked to someone now. He didn't have tweet. Yeah you didn't have those instant lines of communication so I think that breakdown of communication. That's when things can get to a place where things get a little hairy quickly. We're more about more pinpoint divorce but that lasts way longer. Now the hot thing to do but anyways this conversation just I mean and we clearly we see a lot we all three of us all for everybody listening sees things differently has different perspective that they're coming at it from and I think the tough part for everybody is the not knowing and confusion and every new site you look at something different. So I'm just as fucked in the head with this yes kate. You're so right about that. Like trying to find a source. I I believe everything that they're saying like it's taking bias and all that shit out of it. It is impossible and we look at the news all the time time for this show to try to find like the best sources and things like that like searching through different tweets and trying to find parts that I believe parts. I don't believe that is so tough man eh. That's the denigration of truth in it. Sucks situation like this. I'll read a tweet from somebody that like. You know what that makes a whole lot of sense. I kind of feel that yeah. I think I agree with this. And then I'll see a counter tweet. It's like but think about their tweet this way. I'm like wait. Maybe this person's right. I don't know so I just like I. I also think it's important to remember that we're not always ever going to have all the information necessary to make that much of an informed decision or a an opinion on what's going on because as ray raise Alinsky thank you once said what. The American public doesn't know is what makes them the American public and I think that's the worst because no why think imports bitches because I think the American public new everything at that highest level there'd be such hysteria confusing out there right now with everybody. That's at twenty of your own we had just like we're who accused All right real good to a little bit of save rounds and alibis. Are you try I with you. Don't want us to go in circles about same topic again for another twenty. No I think we I think we all right go ahead Kedah probably defer to you. But what's like the most respectful way I can bring up some high x breasts. ooh because I think oh I guess we just eat whatever we want. Hunch wow chat lines always open by Decker Jeff Skating spot right now. Maybe forty five minutes to swallow a piece of yoga. This true true speaking of Yogurt Spring Back to Derry. which brings him back to Selma hike? I feel like she knew she. Put that Ellen. It's like Dolly Parton which you are starting to just like you know good for you right. I looked at her last night. Golden Globes and those worthy most golden. Globes there I gotTa tell you can I say Kate was the city's power absolutely popping. I may they have looked at a consultation. Wow maybe it was like I would like to have those. But I digress. It'll be too much time. I'd be favorably. Favorite germ for boobs Kate. Eight oh favorite. Turn boobs I always liked. What's that Halloween? Move Yobbo Jabots Hocus pocus. Jabu's what about you guys. It was on You know I'm I'm respectful. I will refer to them only as breasts well puppies to eyeliner. Puppies his mind like I said before Teddy's but with D.. Naughty thank you hiddink. Cities is not respectful to raise bitch spell to sign. So that's basically my sabe round is someone's almost hikes titties be poppins pretty much. Yeah Yeah it's very nice if we're going to put that out there mainstream media whenever so many troops are getting into it deployed because there are a lot of places we'll porn sites blocked. It's nice to have something that you could at least work there. I like to think that was for the troops. Yeah we should get her. On the show longtime stooling some high x poops brick by brick by brick tip tip. Thank God what are you got. I just I I mean on the Iran topic. I know a lot of people respect our opinions and I think that's great but I think it's way too nuanced for us to get through everything on the show so if we didn't hit your opinion or talk about this specific topic relating you. Then I apologize. I'm sorry dump. I thought it was interesting that the selective service website was crashed of all the people trying to figure out. How do I get out of the draft? I thought that was very funny because as if we would have a draft ever again Canada man. Weather's fine I guess and then lastly chaps you said. The pope was a sergeant major vehemently disagree. The pope is the general the general. I don't think so listen. He's the vicar of Christ. Just which essentially means. He's Christ on Earth and Christ was the editor of the Catholic and Christian religion. So that means the pope is the head of the religion hence. He's a five star general sitting at the right hand of Christ. I think is what he's not. He's not at the right. Hand of Christ he is crazy embodiment of Christ on earth. The vitamin of Saint Peter. Though and I would say hey peter would be he would be the SAR major sarin. Peter Will Peter Saint Peter would be yes but I maintain that Jesus Christ this is a five or excuse me. The pope is a five star. General Jesus Christ the pope. The pope is a five star general. That's that's where I stand okay. Satan is a gunny snorting save around. I won't get into I was gonNA talk about FAIRWINDS and following seas to the twentieth commandant of the Marine Corps General Paul X Kelley Vietnam veteran with Silver Star. He passed away at the age of ninety one last week and he had served thirty seven years in the Marine Corps he He has noted that his most impactful moment he was in Beirut during the bombing. eighty-three that killed two hundred forty servicemembers and there's this great New York Times article. Where just a few days? After the bombings they he sits down for an interview with them And then he talks about how it was right away knew that that was the hardest day of my life and in the aftermath. He went to comfort some of the soldiers who were some of the Marines who were in West? Ask Germany recovering and there was a lance corporal with severe wounds Including this guy had a fractured skull collapsed lungs broken leg temporarily blinded and General General Kelly said when he heard me say who I was. He grabbed my camouflage coat. went up to the collar. Encounter the stars because the guy couldn't seas marine it with his hands that go as if to confirm his rank think he squeezed my hand and then wrote on a piece of paper provided by a nurse Semper fi when the wounded marine returned to the United States general. Kelly presented him with the stars. He had warn during their meeting saying they belonged to him. More than me. While it's yeah just a really really interesting life Look Up General Paul X Kelley. Do you know what the stood that four with name. It was something super impressive. That wasn't I mean anytime big deal. I'm pretty sure Paul's honestly honestly you know they should've lieutenant. Dan could have taken a little less than a leadership from this young marine here. That's how should agreed it for us. Go right and he did my goodness us off the bed onto his cheek. That had just been shot kind of fucked up also slightly totally different note. I wish I had done this part. I I talked about a porn star on here but Dr Bottom. Yeah you've mentioned them once or twice okay anyway. A very high up porn star tweeted me this week. So Grey Owen Gray look them up as well but different vibes. Well God okay anyway all in their jobs all right okay. Good Week stressed. It was stressful. I hate going through all this stuff stuff and digging about all the families who are going through everything It's it's a tough spot to be in But I'm glad that we have the roughest and best men and women in in uniform ready to stand the watch and march to the sounds of the guns even if we disagree on. Why they're there on the retreat

Where do you hear that Jean Jacket I've got no anywhere hey that's intense and I don't blame him for trying to argue for custody if she's out of Rehab and she clearly proved his point yeah I mean at that time stayed in the same place as you you're the hardest lever and sore yeah I so I've been on the road with bobby bones this week doing American idol stuff shaving her head remember like trying to hip hop Razzi without umbrella and her head was shaved yes look I love that actually Gammel pin from was threatening to have a drug test this is she was like fuck it I'm shaving my head they're not gonNA find cocaine hair which I mean right or she's like hey bob I'm going to be at the palm tonight right but yeah some days they encourage it but when you're having a bad we're having a doesn't go away screen shot at it lasts forever you remember wasn't what was she tweeting about I just remember being like murdering you to cover up him saying he wanted to murder his sister-in-law right even when you say these things I thought Oh my God I'm in an episode of I don't know I feel to be mindful that we all struggle but for the media darlings is darker moments or sometimes immortalized by the press and if the Paparazzi aren't enough celebrities also have to deal with well the dangers of substance abuse I mean it's a slippery slope you know sometimes these people have to work really long hours during the day and part of their job is also being it's the last people you WanNa see WanNa see most so I was reading on Nikki Swift Dot com and it said being Ayla celebrity condemning put pressure on even so what they say goes and it's their ticking time bombs well and also like if you grow up in the place where you start working so young you actually is big public meltdowns rise famous children so they don't have normal upbringings they don't have normal relationships with their parents you they're probably supporting their parents that as a child you're too busy working and that happened I can't imagine not being able to do that as an adult I've seen a few of her meltdowns to you guys back and she I think she graduated from some sort of fashion institute like she seemingly got it back together and trying to move on with her life shoot murder birth what happens however when the cracks start to show an celeb- suddenly snaps even Hollywood's elite aren't immune to mental illness and substance abuse so it's and these people are people and they we have our our bad days to we just don't have people following a us with cameras like they do yeah I mean granted we do live in a world says or some sort of substance abuse problems which makes me feel a little guilty for even talking winter they all involve twitter I know like get off the twitter twitter her vagina what's yeah she was saying she wanted somebody come murderer pussy or some laurie advisory that was really what was happening blake is there usually a theme to the night or you yes okay so brady did that this is a story behind that though remember she was like in Rehab and don't get to be a kid I do feel like there's a lot of that that is this side ways like I'm going to act out kind of mentality you know which I don't know always there when he gets in trouble too because his dad a part of it because his dad you know I think I think his parents were teen parents too and then his father really wasn't in the picture until also could you imagine if the camera was following you around or people gave a shit when you were so drunk I mean you have friends of ours who video you and you're drunk you're if seemingly gotten it together now which obviously you never really know a few like remember what he was throwing exit his neighbor's House don't his his dad's of a she wanted drake to murder her vagina forgot about that she was on drugs pushes saying Oh yeah and that was another thing I read she now kind of speaks out about Justin Bieber no you have been God I'm just automatically sleeping and American idol node yeah all three of them have their their an alert things that on twitter to get an education if Amanda Bonds tweeted lots of it was like the big show but the goodness for her is recently she's been the videos shots of them in their lives But we digress back to meltdown let's talk about what he is fucked up so I remember that's what you dreamed up I remember at that time in my life having notification said on twitter or two there's no way that he was not having sex with Selena oh for sure but I mean he could be like a second time virgin maybe or maybe she was maybe L. Justin got famous and then he came back in the picture and naturally you want you want a relationship with your father but it's there's no real father relationship there I've been around a kid like all it takes them like staying up in our past their bedtime and they have a meltdown of epic proportions imagine not being able to but I should probably be ashamed of some of it I mean I don't give a shit imagine of you were famous and people were like Oh my God did you see what ship did different things because no meltdowns yet I was also remembering the Justin bieber stuff because I'm thinking of people who've her dad is like very really religious cracks can think of that word I did get spotted from this podcast already Oh my God tells more Bartok here Nashville it was a combination of this and I'm GonNa have to pop up on Instagram of my face get too tired and watch out that's when you really love that Dan Shea video what have you not heard the new Dan Shea Song Hey injuring do you remember the whole Amanda Binds thing yes I didn't end up being bipolar disorder which is okay a lot of these involve either mental illness at that is why they got married so fast are young or whatever to wipe have sex no because he's been having sex with everybody I think so down the street and his neighbors calling the cops I think it was the same he was living in that same house when he was throwing eggs at his neighbors his address the address is way back the only issue though I mean we I wouldn't call this a meltdown but like it was literally the name of the year then like dancing than me there's no as she had no chance chance no chance she was modeling by the age she was three I mean this girl and she was like a huge star at the parent trap out at night and being seen and I mean that takes a toll on you and sometimes you need these substances prolong your day got so but honestly though it's mostly child stars but there's some of them don't bounce back as well as others either give us an eight Lindsey Lowe Hannah's of our friends instagram handles Crayton's Scrim well on that instagram is that's a couple of times where you you've been body rolling either snow is the same but now he's married to Haley Baldwin caller hailey belly bieber excuse me they just had their second wedding in fact uh how do you trust anybody get that famously I mean he was the most famous kid in the world at that time so I just remember the story about him like racing each you Hollywood story on her she's brilliant I'm glad she bounce back same I want to go back to Lindsey though because I felt like for a moment Lindsey was doc maxed out she makes money moves production of glamour an iheartradio listen and subscribe at Apple podcast iheartradio APP or wherever you listen to podcasts if you're gonNA put something on TV and portray it it damn well better be there when people go to Greece Greece's are really hot destined you're speaking to me bounceback way she was in Rehab Fourteen now she's saying when she was eight she's US yeah that's like the Hollywood I would love to see a trainwreck I guess well here's the thing tell and I think I'm speaking the truth here but I tried to find it on a map and it wasn't even on a beach so costume was brilliant amazing soon drew Barrymore has actually like totally so glad he got us together good for him I think he's like very religious now too he definitely talks about a lot this is also a side tangent but do you think that go cancelled after the first season did you watch it now I never watched it but I couldn't understand why it wouldn't be a global phenomenon because she's being herself I mean I need those dancing thing it's legitimately all that I think of when I think of Lindsay Lohan which does that high kick to X. was her for Halloween and his and then mean girls it was like stratospheric she was so amazing come on Lillo get it together whatever happened to her reality show was a Lindsay Lohan Lake hotel thing but I couldn't find a beach club anywhere on a map and I was going to Greece and we wanted to go to Lindsay Lohan there and but she was in a club and meek knows slipping her hair doing high kicks she was clearly on something it could not make the connection how does that kind of getting it together but when you see her family you're like well no fucking wound up in prison I can't remember I can't keep out her mom outfit work there I just can't process this will not knowing what time of year it could have been that preceded but it may have been that may have happened during filming or something but there wasn't I don't think she actually had a real beach club but did you notice what she was wearing it was like leisurewear like silver leisure silk like it was like what ladies who lunch when they're seventy the beach club and there was nothing I have a thing that I want to talk about what that video again obviously I really enjoy it because going back to it three times now yeah no it was it was about her beach club in Mykonos that was where the epic video came from I don't know if it was that it was long sleeves I can't remember shorts you'll like it was short sleeve I remember seeing a lot of freckles so I mean that could have been any part of her body but I felt like it was possibly arms but I'm really remembering or the high waisted Silk Pants got a lover I mean it definitely gave her room to move which is why she could kick the way she you know who their parents are because they're trying to be famous too I mean Anna who Tina Knowles is you know because of her clothing design skills and things like that seven million followers what's it called Camera Dole's yeah it's so funniest so it says this instagram is dedicated to the people out there who secretly take photos of me brilliant and was like I'm going to do this weird dads and I want you Oughta make me amount of it and I don't care if it humiliates me giving her way too much so speaker Amos and people are trying to take pictures of your smart they're smart phones all the time that's a hard way from me right now smart phones so in a club in Greece in a huge party city it to me I was imagining her to be wearing something like this right right or bathing suit exactly and so they at Kohl's browse started this account called camera dolls and this is so funny to me but this is actually a great way to handle it if you're super because it made me laugh so hard he posted this one of this lady at this restaurant at lunch one day this is the caption let's be clear this is the face of an absolute Tutti it was really close with his mother and respectful way and I think you know you understand you can just tell me when you look at the ones that did have the major meltdowns leg that and that's why I think it's like it comes down to parenting because the that but I don't know about her in any other way other than she's a working woman to which makes beyonce they make total sense that's an interesting point you make do you remember and how I take photos of them I may the fastest camera win how brilliant so brilliant like for instance at a screen shot of this cabinet they're doing like what do you call those things where you talk directly to camera the asides internees interviews whatever I thought there was a technical probably maybe she was Berg Dylan sprouse and Kohl's house they were the they're basically the boy Olsen twins they were on the suite life of Zack and cody oh no I never watched it I would and I'm curious where her like wrong or something yeah I'm curious where her blazer was to go without la while I wonder if it was during filming and it was like the ones who make it through fine like you don't seem to know as much about their parents they kinda say out of the spotlight themselves and are the parent whereas a lot of the ones that have these major meltdowns like to an audience of ten I don't even know what that word is ten people will call or perhaps they were just dualist I'll let you decide which is most likely the stars that handle it better than others I mean Justin timberlake escaped honestly I'm shocked but he did really well wonder why maybe it just wasn't and perhaps she was a blogger one of the one that gets all dressed up and invites her friends to a meal just to spend thirty fucking minutes taking photos of their dish an animated grinch movie when I retorted haven't you already gotten one I laughed. She laughed her demon laughed it was a good time he's funny so funny I'd probably not because you're probably in call twenty five Oh sorry I took a normal photo with her seemed right in the world it was that then that pursuit asked her friend if she wanted a photo as well which her friend said no I don't like him anymore when I'm working out and eating right I start to feel kind of invincible but then October rolls around and I'm reminded that nobody is immune to flu season the universe my name is Michael Roman and I'm the host of a new podcast called from scratch on iheartradio this isn't another podcast keep you little forever hard you make a whole identity and then you have no chance to like actually figure out who you are that's tough how this was a particularly special because after it took place as I got up to leave she asked for a regular photo I imagine my face looked quite a bit like the evil curled smile us kind of a sensory memory of another place sensory memory of my person starting October sixteenth listened to from scratch on Apple podcasts or the IHEART when it comes to the flu the best thing you can do for your health is get a flu shot flu shot can help reduce flu illnesses doctor's visits missed work and school amp prevent flu related well fuck you very much strange woman getting hammered on Tomato Juice at eleven thirty am I don't like you anymore either a love it this is my new favorite accountants in my twenty year career as a writer I've written books which aim to translate the chefs craft for the home cook now I'm continuing that tradition here every soda from scratch we'll explore cooking with one chef so right now on doing is taking a piece of fish and one expert who isn't a chef what I was missing women needed and it's free to you with most insurance the great astronomer and author Carl Sagan once said if you wish to make an apple pie from scratch you must first invent about these people having meltdowns you have you know mental health issues or substance abuse problems Michael Jackson once said I think every child stars suffers you start to grow and they want hospitalizations so this flu season be AFL fighter with the flu shot from Walgreens it's your shot to protect you and the ones you love to stop into your neighborhood walgreens no female okay well we have that in common she is a young girl who has now become a megastar singer say one and by the way I'm looking at a picture of him and his brother and I do not recognize them a lot different did on the Disney show but I'm surprised you don't since you were probably she was first seen on dance MOMS for two seasons with her mother and now she is a Youtube Star dancer a Saint Full eight-year-old fans going wild like watching videos from this show I I I don't see people go wild like that and kids kids she sold out Bridgestone arena which is like where beyond say plays I mean this is a hugely nut sold out two crazy out of control we know that were there have been plenty of shows because their parents work in the business right and all the parents said now this was our children's first concert the number one fan okay I want to do things I mean obviously I think there's there's a lot to this I feel a little guilty as we said talking her I've never seen such glitter or sequence in one place but I will also say that I like the Song Boomerang and there's no shame in my game nth degree and if you guys don't know Josie while it is like a color explosion and she wears these big both in our hair and I read somewhere or heard somewhere that she's like wall radio APP or wherever you get your podcast on that note lets predictively think meltdown Offi I by the way I'm going to preface this of about I feel like most of the like kids stars that I can remember that girl's loved were boys like mine was new kids on the also feel like at the same time her dog may have a meltdown and if you don't Hertzog is pleased Google him I cannot think of his name right now but it's a little Yorkie under the same one as she was large bows in her head and her name is Josie Wa that's a good one thank you I recently she was in Nashville. I'm waiting for it to happen not that I wanted to happen but I just will not be surprised I don't think you can be sixteen that famous with that much pressure and not lose it at some point doing those and was like camera ready for that was like oh I love this song you know Dan have you seen my high-kick or maybe she's just really funny grandmother approved the first so she by me every album she put out I'll have Paula Abdul Amy grant as a base okay none of them had meltdowns that we know are singer who rose to fame young age who has had her fair share of like drama but for a meltdown okay and life just always seems a little too picture-perfect I've realized that feel like a meltdown it she's a great example of someone who was capable of avoiding it because of good parenting but I'm just like totally attended it and took it in a way that was so different from what they're used to do you remember the first time you saw a celebrity to you're like Oh my God I saw that person on TV art sold like fifteen million dollars worth of Josie Wab bose last year I mean massive massive star and that I might even be quoting a low yeah we have not shared with each other who we think it's going to be so I'll be a little devastated if you say what is weak here's Blake I mean like I mean I tend to think in not to like get serious about I seriously think it's about parenting

We've done more than seventeen times. Loser episode drunk to really which we might release. Maybe one day we get data. Listen to them. And then we should I grade. They made me laugh so hard. Oh, man. We were funny. They were be Andrea directionless. No research. Nope. Just drunken we learned our lesson. We we got it all out of our ours. Yeah. Exactly. Well, so this week we're going to talk about menswear finally just as a general overview because we don't ever really talk about it. No every once in a while will add something, but we're very lady century here and the fire with fashion industry works, but menswear is becoming much, and we are we try to be inclusive and understanding and compassionate. So that includes talking Bowman's where everybody in this room loves then. Yeah. True Roan same. And we also it's not like, we're uninterested or an. Not an informed about these things we all really like it, and we kind of pay attention to it, and you know, have partners or friends who are also super into it who we can talk to about it. Like, I know my husband is a crazy close horse and has been vegetative cysts for quite a few years now. Yeah. So I get to talk about it with ham allot. Yeah. Chris talk about evidence to and he's about he's graduated. Although he saw his Dickie, and I fully support. I'm support her. If you're going to have just a pant. That's a pretty good pant or good short that who are really good short that who good work shirts. He wears them for work all the time. There you go. Good car, heart Gasic. Yeah. So in both of those brands have high end labels now. I think we mentioned that. Yeah. We did. And they're pretty nice. And there there's a reason they've been around for like how ever ran for whoever long. They are. Yeah. Yeah. So we're yes. So we're going to talk a little bit just like an overview on what we like about it. What draws us to it a little bit of the history examples of all kinds of things like that. But I will catch up because it's been a little a little bit. Katie. What are you got what I have had a lot on the goal in the last two while actually I've had a few days of working as a styling assistant in film, which is really exciting and superstructure get that call and I hope more calls come feelers out, and they got to really really fun. Yeah. So I'm sorry about that. But what I really wanted to talk about when you talk about that. Maybe in another episode more information both stylus because you've really done that yet either. And you're then how other people do it red carpet? We talked about starting. Yeah. It's a whole different side of. Of of things. But I think it's very interesting. It is very happy on another upset to hear you talk more about. Yeah. Yeah. On his guest. Change, my voice voice like in like what's her name in lady? Diane. When I first came to make oover to do that to go to fashion school. I wanted to do almost six years ago. Yeah. That is wild. It was fall twenty two. I was holy cow. What I wanted to do was excess res and primarily bags and had packs and handbags and stuff and this is right before Herschel really took off they are. And they are huge everywhere now, and I was like my father in law who's like seventy something year old dude, I'm businessman has a little Herschel gym bag. Yeah. Dawn. And they yeah. So when they came out we were it was our first year fashioned term. I think when they really sort of came out, and I was like cool. There's a future for me in in this field. I ended up not really going down that path. But I haven't my my obsession. And my, you know, so your interest has an interest. And so when I was telling some people back home about coming out here to do this. This really good family friend of ours. Who is crushing gored gored? Right. Yeah. The best Dave says, there's no people named Gord who are not Canadian. I've may very well be true because we had Gordie Howe and recipe's and Gord from tragically hip who've been in the news lately, another tune Lightfoot. Yeah. And there was another one maybe the past like sick or something talking about how all the gourds are. And there's another one there is. For anyway, he had for years and years. I've known my whole life. He made these packs. For climbing for mountain climbing mount near and hiker and everything and katie's from weapon the mountain unless than the melons, and so he had these beautiful packing them forever. And I've seen them my whole life and their leather on the bottom, and then he had this really nice heavy waxed. Can't like a duck canvas can really heavy oh night. Most. Most outdoor wait. Yeah. Cameras that he'd make them out real. They can take. And he had an industrial sewing machine like an upholstery sewing machine. Sure. Basement Benny duty. Yeah. So I was chatting with about this, and he gave me basically kit. He gave me all the pre-cut leather pieces and the tools so the other hand. Yeah. Yeah. And it's just like like a bucket bag, basically, really simple drawstring, the drawing up the design like the length of the back is the length of your back like so when you're up in the mountains, you shouldn't be carrying that more than that. There's reasons behind all of these your and just heavy this really nice heavy duty leather, and he'd put his per in the bottom. They had the little placement pieces for the the holes for your ice axe. And for your crampons or go on the outside of your pack on the inside don't want on the inside the terror threat. And so he gave me this kit. And it was amazing. So I have had it for a long time in a I got as much of a done as I could I found this really beautiful waxed. Canvas. Actually, the same countless that. I made my punch out of. Yes. So I made I did all of the pieces and got it all together. And I bought you know, an. All ended all these hand, sewing pieces and gluing in the cutting and figuring it all out you need to you need to poke holes in the leather before you can. So you're poking as you so do leather. It's too thick to do that. So you have to pre poke all your little holes with your all which is just like appointee ice picky. Right. And then then hanso, so some of these I haven't, but my previous employer had they've had a walking foot machine, and they just got it service. And now it's up and running. So a walking machine. If you're not familiar is. It's basically a heavy duty sewing machine that instead of having the little feet underneath the sewing, mut labral back. It doesn't have mechanism because that would tear your leather up. It has literally of afoot that makes a walking motion. It's to peace mechanism that walks the leather throughout words from the top. So it doesn't damage underneath and Inter's use it all the time. Oh, yeah. Right industrial ones. But of course, tension, you don't get flat seam, of course. Yeah. Okay. So there you go. So there's an eye another ever mational, or it's I've never made a little bags. Are you the one that? I think what's very heavy duty is different than the weather. Yeah. And it was amazing. So I was so stoked to be able to needle through butter. I bet just like slice and bitter like like head like this is a power Amish. Sure. So it's gonna want to take some Nyquil before. Yup. Yeah. No, no. But so I finally finish it finished pack. I've had it for like four and a half years. Yeah. And it's been sitting in Philly eighty finish it it's beautiful. I so in love with it guys some pictures, so definitely post pitchers. I I intended to finish it in twenty twelve in. I had a little like on the back of it. There's a little heart shape piece for the the Deering, hold the straps. And I punched in the date twenty two a little heavy. So I mean if. Overtopping? The thing that happened in twenty two okay? Okay. It was for that started making it then. Yeah, I did did put underneath at twenty twelve twenty sixteen for your whole. I should do. Anyway, the only thing left to be done, and I'm really excited about this part is the the drawstring part. I don't have the little like slider. Clasp OSHA once you pull the string tight. Yeah. I I've just been nodding it, but I've found there's this jewelry maker out of Calgary that I found on Instagram and her her name is I wrote it down some urban.

So this is an for a couple more weeks. Anyway, they're not. I'm. Out your three trials. Exciting. Yeah. So it's crazy. We had that denial Aji probably going up to I don't know. Like, the nineteen beginning nineteen ten ninth nineteen hundred turn of the century. Turn-of-the-century went up there and then three hundred dot com, we found another and someone some dude at another family tree. But my paternal grandfather was attached to this tree some home whenever it when I put in all of his information like when he was born and this if there's a little leaf that pops up like, oh, there's like this person might there's a connection here. So this dude had a family tree that was like huge. So I just kept clicking and clicking clicking. Are back as like the Red River settlement in Manitoba, the seventeen hundreds. Yeah. That's so cool. Yeah. And then for in another direction through his maternal line, my great like my dad's. So my grandfather his maternal line went for into Quebec like them at the around the Saint Lawrence river during confederation. Wow. Wow. On saying, that's awesome. And me, and my brother just sat there and just like, oh my God. Union brother can do it together. And I'm sure your other family will be happy to have information to call it. We had to call our our Gramma my mom's mom, and we got some information for her. And now we're going through that lineage and most of that is in Quebec like the her people didn't release stay in weren't in Manitoba that much until like the last. Fifty fifty years, but maybe like the last hundred years tear, I'm thinking in the grand scheme of what we've been able to find like one hundred year that far isn't that much now off of having gone back all the way to confederation back even further than that? Yeah. Exciting. You just keep going like people have always been around. Yeah. So we're really trying to find the connection to Europe. Because obviously. Exactly that people came from France and. Quebec you back in like we found like the town in from on on in like on the Saint Lawrence over where they there where people came from. And there's all these records like birth death. Weddings interesting that is so interesting. Yeah. Why wouldn't if you find tunes hope so you're pregnant was weird when I was doing this. I was watching that TV show who do you think you are? Show.

If they didn't know how to speak or write in their native language Scher and all this insane stuff. Huge epic Dale. So I'd really love to unearth some interesting stuff. So there's an there's another podcast listen to called totally mommy about mom staff and one of the one of the co host there she did some research onto her husband's family. I think in way way back there American, and it's one hundred fifty something years ago. There was like a weird off shoot of a woman named abstinence. Kit at a wedlock. Yeah. Ooh. Kids. Silence.

Campbell's in there. I actually got my shit together and sewed myself outfit the wedding. I was procrastinating for a long time. And then I found. I found a short skirt pattern, and then ended up not using the skirt because it was. Theoretically. It was nice put it on. But it made it a little crop top and high waisted skirt amazing cloud nine fabric is like beautiful Cottigny bright colors. Like a weird purple. I want something bright to breaks. Don't crazy bright colors. But I also wanted something vaguely geometric, but then also I didn't want to be fucked to like pattern mash on the seems. Right. Look if you have a plaid or something, and you have a side, see when you cut out the pieces, you have to make you have to try to make the library or you should can also not whatever. But I didn't wanna have to. There's some things that are it's very obvious. If they're not not stop. And at the end of the day. It's not the biggest deal, but you know, it can really bother some people and a lot of sewers are perfectionists and that can get in the way really distracting. Yeah. So I got this weird like swirly dots and things like a very light. Let's. I guess like a few show on a very dark purple. It's pretty and then I thought if I got a shirt, and the topic kind of be like address, but I can tell you know. I'm still nursing a have access perfect up there. Up shirt, so sweet should actually wedding. Under boob. All right. And then I got out cocky about it. And I even sewed my daughter addressed and it kind of matches. Like pink and purple, and I was joking. Evan that need. New I'm gonna make day Daywear, purple tie lobbied. So gross. Family. The worst disgusting but autumn excited, but then also got Margot. My my twenty month old the cutest little sandals. And she Bucky hates though, Bill gel. You know? She loves the jelly. Oh, yeah. Address. I mean, I guess in a pinch. They could probably address the other ones are so. How about had jelly shoot back. They're back near back. Here's a triangular ever. See them again. I know what you're stinky sweaty feet in them again, Margot, smell like, strawberries. I didn't know that because I wanted them online. But then opened the package I'm like what's today open lip balm or something around him drink, and I'm just like with the shoes that's the appropriate application for jelly shoes. Children tiny little bits. But I got it from Joe fresh these super cute, they're like a little iridescent silvery strappy kind of gladiator sandal ver- Margo for you argot. Oh, so cute, and she hates she's scared slash angry. When I offer when I'm like drawing to put your shoes on 'cause I let her choose her shoes. Every I'd give it to choices. I of course, select the choices Rangers gave a random, whatever. Rain boots Marino. It's thirty agrees out. So I gave her choices never choose she chooses other. That's way too small. So I actually had to hide them away. Now to put those sandals away. Soak in there. There's like gray and address green. Oh what? So get it together. I'll be working we'll be training or maybe like cheese stick reward system or something find her currency and figure out where these Syracuse shows. She'll come around. She knows. What's good for? Yeah. Brick. Yeah. She can't find me can't run away. Shoes at least one of them. The other one. Okay. Well, that's. Stuff. Make your lately. Yeah. Feels nice when you get a good group going especially because there's so many dry periods are just like. Ooh. And then finishing stuff is because I'm such a procrastinator with the starting, but I really like finishing. Yeah. So I don't have that too many unfinished objects but hadn't. He hadn't money. Well, not saying my big one is gone now. Yes hallelujah. It's been carrying on for a while. But now, but now actually here to talk about today, which is men's wear and how men dress for the boys this episode, which nowadays is getting very similar to how women dress like how they choose their outfits the importance of things options that sort of things but for like a hundred and fifty years had one choice pretty much ready much. You got a suit or a suit? Yeah. Yeah. You had like casual slacks or suit slack. And there there's a they were the same. Yeah. Yeah. Basically, and he had this bundled share to this bundle shirt. Although I suppose in like in the south. You would have you probably have a linen tourists. Your suckers cotton or something as opposed to some sort of wool or synthetic when they're like in the fifties and stuff, did you know that nylon was invented in nineteen like late fifties released sixties like, that's yeah. That's only. Hello ubiquitous. It's everywhere. Now. Sorry spandex span in the sixties. There didn't rayon nylon and stuff came out of the wars. Maybe. Yeah. And asks acetate has been around for a long time. But a nylon they had nylon for parachutes and stuff and unlike nylons, but spandex stretch fabrics have existed for something that is in everything. Now like in our parents, our parents generation, they didn't have it. Yeah. They they did not have it. There was no stretch. Interesting that crazy. Yeah. That's pretty crazy. That's nuts. Like there was obviously like some, you know, levels of elastic and stuff but stretch like spandex like any of that kind of stretch fabric to straight up didn't exist allowed leg. Rely Chris like, the TM the dre Mark of spandex Bendix is the generic term. And likewise, the who taunt or something owns that are all of the chemical companies chemical companies on all of those is synthetic synthetic fabrics Pont and the other one answers in the really big one. But yeah. Like in the postwar period, that's for those pre and post were that's where all of this chemical stuff. That's why when you were polyester you're wearing petro chemical. You're you're never gonna biodegrade. Sorry. Yeah. But. But. Civic. That's everyone's specific. But there is there's so many things in men's fashion that are what they call permanent, permanent fashion like the suit. It's just it just exists. And that is just a part of who. I can't the future. You know, sort of weird like leather unitards are gonna win the future out of them. Hopefully. If you get one infect get one and allows your whole life. Right LED's. Isn't it? But yeah. Well, we were talking about this upstairs to the like a three piece suit like the three piece suit that we know of as jacket vest and pants that happened in in eighteen fifties. And the the crazy thing about this was that the jacket and the vest and the pants were all cut out of the same fabric. That had never happened for sure that it was all the same. You know, NIA he will or whatever. Yeah. Blabber? This was like a brand new deal had never happened before all the same. And now, it's like, that's how men's fashion that's meant suits. I should say. Yes, basically operate. It's that's what a suit is. But that has only been that's been around since eighteen fifty and that's it and the whole and before that. Crazy. There's some crazy shit happening. Look at Louis the fourteenth. Enlightenment and the renaissance and medieval stuff and weird weird wild stuff. I found this. We had this great textbook in school called the. I wrote it down. It was called the survey of historic costume. And it's actually a pretty I mean, it's tech home. I was. It was like twelve. It's crazy. But it's a it's a great by air pack, though. I. Pack. If I needed an extra workout. But it's a very thorough. But historical, it's great. And there's tons of stuff. And I found this funny article or this funny little like blurb. This guy or Derek Vitalis a monk writing in the early twelfth century writes disparagingly of the fashionable styles of the period in his dry type against the new styles. Gives one version of the oranges of the long pointed toes for shoes that appeared periodically throughout the middle ages, and he was among so this was like sinful, and he's like austere very simple and then all these Yahoos from like the Persian empire. Whatever the Turks coming in influencing, how dare the shoes rentals pagans, so I'm gonna just go through like a little bit. Because it's really funny count folk was his name was a man. This is his his words. This is the the monk. Count folk was some crazy dude was a man with many reprehensible, even scandalous have it full and gave way too many pestilent devices like wearing issues dairy. Straight the hell being with deformed feet. He had shoes made with very long pointed toes to hide the shape of his feet and conceal the gross that are commonly called bunions gross. But this figure it out. Yeah. This encouraged new fashion in the western regions with delighted frivolous men in search of novelties to meet it covers fashion. She was like scorpions tales, which are commonly called polish shoes or lanes, which we. Oh, yes. Remember that? Yeah. And almost all rich and poor lake now demand shoes of this kind before. Then she's always used to be made of round used to be made round fitting the foot in these adequate to the needs of high low with clergy and lady, but now Lehman in their pride sees fashion typical of corrupt morals at the stake. Toes? Yeah. Oh my gosh. We'll genie shoes. Right. Yeah. Basically it just like some kind of different and you have to make. These other shoes like just make some kind of cool, and it was scandalous sinful already. But that's how it always happens. Like something does someone does something of crazy or something weird and people like on it becomes a trend. Yeah. Like we talked about last week. One of those cult figures. Early adopter. Exactly. Yeah. They had this whole his whole. Fashion at the time that. The effeminate set the fashion in many parts of the world who has. Oh. Again, we all know where that means. They rejected the traditions of honest, men ridicule. The council of priests and persistent in the barbarous way of life and style of dress that part of the from the crown of the head to the forehead grew long luxuriant oxyde women and love to themselves in long over tight shirts and tunics. Dave. Never changed. Nothing is new Davies void of any individuality or anything that had anything to do with the guy that you just meant. Davies gay district. Yeah. Yes. Yes. And it has been for a very long time. But like back in this time, this is like a thousand years ago. Yeah. They were curling there with hot irons like they. They cared about their appearance. Like, this wasn't a thing. That's like a new. What was that term in the in the late nineties about that for guys? I can I think about metro sexual. Oh, yes. Metro sexuality carry about it, and like getting manicures eyebrows. And manscaping. Not a new thing. No, never nothing is new in the history of passion, even menswear. Really nothing is new it just gets dragged on and on. That's so funny. It was just so like it was such a crazy free for all for the longest time. And then all of a sudden like pre Victorian ist staff were it got like super puritanical deer and us steer and very conformist, and very, you know, modest and that sort of thing, and then that just took like a white knuckled grip. A never let go for like one hundred years. Yeah. For men. I'm part is because we kept starting these dumb wars. Yeah. Because the aristocracy in the late ninety. Like in the late nineteen century. There's just there's so many wars and twentieth century just been there was a bunch too. And people just got used to end alongside with all the worse it come through become technical, pardon me technological advances and like the industrial revolution. And you know, mass production of fabric and sewing machines were invented in the eighteen hundred stuff like that like that. Yeah. That really changed things. Yeah. But like. None of it happens by accident. Like, the reason all of this flung point caution existed way back in the day. And like the seventeenth century stuff was because there was so much money. And when you're Lou the fourteenth all these other kings who had just defined a way countries worth and all the top artisans. And you know. Yeah, acres, you're disposable. Yeah. Wanting to get your money. Yeah. And and you wanted to promote them to as a sovereign, right? And on the other side of it all these other poor people who are just barely keeping up. Now got kind of pissed about that. So after the French revolution changed that was a big. It was a big change right in the end of the. Europe. Yeah. Things like wars to that would change like in the nineteen thirties for men like you think of men like Fred Astaire and Clark Gable? Cary Grant, like super handsome movie stars. And like, the, you know, the very over like overly elegant, you know, very masculine big wide shoulders, double breasted, jackets and stuff, then the war came and totally that sort of elegance was just not appropriate appropriate. Not available. You know, like you just couldn't do it anymore. So then than than after the war was over in the latter. Half of the nineteen forties in the nineteen fifties. It kind of came back. And then that's where big mass manufacturing started to right? Where you have big catalogs would make thousands of a thing. And you could sell them all over the place and ship them all over the state and department stores purpose to are sort of popping up everywhere to the ability of these things so that was. You got back to real life and having more money to 'cause it was, you know, the postwar boom in the forties and fifties, and you didn't have servants anymore that was party even the middle class for a long time, you had servants who somebody closer -absolutely and that sort of downton abbey. It was like the twenties and thirties when the show ended, and they still had a whole staff of people doing their stuff for him. It was big deal in the goes sewing machine. Song everything by hand. And the thing is too before it before the wars to there is so many. Especially in men's where there were so many things that were royalty based right? Like, you looked Dave was telling me that the reason why men's pants have cuffs because one time it was raining, and whatever king just like rolled his pants up. And that's why men's pants have cuffs or Lybia specific kind of. Cuff on a shirt or something or his because you know, this is the way this king water, it was manufactured in this way under his reign, and it was just a style he adopted himself, and so much of that's happening all the time for hundreds of years and with that with with engenders royalty. Sees me internals wealthy. It's tied to the military as well. So like the reason that amends jacket crosses. Right of different than the late late right over left, right? Over left is because. Most men are right handed, and they would have to reach for their sword. Which was on the left side. I think I'm neither saying this. Correct. Or it's the opposite. It doesn't matter. Yes. But when you grab your sword. You didn't want your hand to get in the way of your coat? So they put the closure the way other way. So that it wouldn't you wouldn't get your hand stuck. When you're your weapon. That's why it's different than women's because we didn't bother about that sort of thing we had men. Yeah. So when everything has a reason everything has to say, but the yeah, there's so many things that. You would you would look to the social and cultural elite. And that you know that the men would then try to then take and make their own issue. Right. And then obviously for your economics, you know, position and social positions of the figure a way to do it. And this is one thing I was really interested in was Edward the eighth of England. The prince of Wales he was the prince of Wales and then abdicated the throne. This was like the whole king speech guy that he left and then George took over for him in nineteen thirty six because he wanted to marry an American divorce scandal like this scandal of the century. He was like fuck you England, I'm gonna marry this little number. But this happened in the thirties when he abdicated but his whole like adult life. He was a very good looking athletic military prints who was so fucking chic. And did there's a there's multiple pictures of him. I found this one book upstairs the art of dressing, the man and the guys this prince of Wales was just everywhere because his influences so intense for menswear. A Huber four different patterns like his he'd have a tweed one then a tie and a shirt, and then a puck at square up different patterns of ro. And he looks. So so handsome, and so well dressed and the thing with menswear to on this note is that is all about the details. Every 'cause you have such. Heady sick choice of items of particular items shirt jacket pants, vast waistcoat who maybe who. So like, this would be this is him a big resting his personality right is having these and also he was British. So we had a lot of. English and Scottish and Welsh and Irish manufacturers making this tweeds making his Plaid's making shirts that sort of thing and his ties knits and things and he like the whole like athletes thing, right? So that was kind of him because he was a super rich guy who had time to go on vacation, and then be photographed wearing shorts and like a white cable, Nick sweater, right lane, tennis and stuff and then people like literally they would advertise warned by the prince. And that's all you needed that stamp on your ad, and if the principal's role wore it, and even like he would come to the states of a few times in like the twenties and thirties he came to the states with three or four times. And he was just hounded and his picture was everywhere. And like within like months, all of the departments was full of whatever he was wearing. And those telling these guys that the list of things that people wear because he wore them is a my long. Things like our gal socks or anything Argyle, which is a plaid that has like diamond-shapes considered a plot. I don't it's kind of like a Scottish sprint something, and it's a knit. It's always. Brown shoes. Brown leather shoes who really? Whoa. You guys. I know you just fell off your back. Composer yourself Brown shoes. But that wasn't a venue where us. Yeah. But it we're actually use knickers the little Gulf Gulf pants, come to your knees. I love like hot and the twenties and thirties red ties notable red ties apparently twins. So really, are you girl, double breasted jackets? He made like, and they have a big long lapel that sits very low because he was very tall and very broad shoulders. He can pull off a longer like where the points of the lapel further down on your chest closer to your boobs rate on your shoulders. Double Russia jacket. If you don't know is has two sets of buttons has to rose instead of just closure. It has to closes further out. So it makes the shoulders look bigger and the waist look smaller can get a different fit. It was a huge China in the eighties to yes. With very generated shoulders for men and women, and then like a fair isle sweater, which is like a again, some some tiny beautiful picturesque island off the coast of England. That's very busy and has a whole bunch of like lines of design and stuff. They're beautiful fair bid to make. Yeah, I bet but he people for that. He had a bunch of people. So he. People would find ways to wear what he was wearing to fit. You know, their body types and stuff. So it's it was just amazing how at least in the twentieth century. To this day. Yeah, men are wearing what he wore the way he ward or or finding new permutations of it because he was the one who actually started doing it. I, and I don't know where he got his ideas from like, I don't know what his motivation was to say, you know, this this I'm gonna wear a straw boater cap hat, or whatever, you know, because she was she was a big fashion fashion to and now I wanna read now that I've read about Edward. I wonder we watched that Madonna movie, which was utterly terrible. I can't. Remember, edit it and cut out all the modern stuff. This is where it's a story of Wallace Simpson can't leave until the name. W e w e that's why because it's Wallace and Edward. And I was so obsessed with her clothes the whole movie. Now, I want to go back and look at his clothes. I don't know if you're talking about, oh, it's so great. How half of it's great. There's one story line that's modern times. And it's girl looking back and researching Wallace. And then there's like nineteen twenties thirties. Okay. That's ringing a little bell. And the clothing is just the there's there's this one dress striped bias every piece is cut in a different direction. So the stripes. It looks like this weird maze. Suppose pitcher Antic for listener at home abbey. Inevitable on the verge of of this year. To apply misspelling salt. Minute. Lot my loosening the. We wanna go back and watch what this guy this guy did off to watch it. I've never I've. So it's if you again, we'll post pictures great for sure moldy bunch of his Barroga's. Great. So add somebody news. It's great for sure. But just Google Edward the eighth prince Wales he has his own plaid prince of Wales. Plaid a little fine. Check with a little hounds tooth. Oh nice. Not really a plaid either. I guess anyway, it's a tweet rate with two colors like a black and a white or gray in a black or something. Another good example of that kind of thing is up until the nineteen sixties men were hats, like always forever. Didn't leave the house without your head. Not just in the twentieth century, but in every century to and JFK stopped wearing a hat, and thus everyone else did that was the death of the hat. Don. Draper software weren't hat under a hat. So did everybody else? Yeah. Yeah. Interesting example. Yeah, you just need one one person to solar changes in menswear or Tayo really longtime like men's were has basically one hundred year cycle. Whereas womenswear has a tenure. Michael there's about one hundred years so within that one hundred years, not a whole lot changes or the teen is very my Uttley. Yeah. So ditching this hat, maybe seem like a big deal now, especially these days in the fashion wherever the fuck on. In the sixty is everybody were hat, and then you didn't know how to be more. That was like that's a pretty it was a pretty big deal. Pretty big statement. You just look at like back in the day. How many different men's hats there were because you needed a hat for different occasions because you had a different shaped head than somebody else in you couldn't wear for door you had to wear trilby or whatever. Like so you had to have option because you had to have. And then you had work ones, and you had casual ones and. You got to you know, rain, you got your says, your, you know, your all your cats all your hat. Maybe. Top twenty hats, go. And that was big to the nineteen after the nineteen forty s and the nineteen fifties, especially the nineteen fifties where you just wore a grey suit. Yeah. That's just what everybody will. And you had a formal like tuxedo. Yeah. For someone fancy him. But you just had everybody had a great suit. And that was just what you had a white shirt and probably had twenty five shirt exactly and five five gray, suits. And that was it. And then the sixties came along and all civil unrest and rebellion and stuff and people started, you know? Saying fuck you wearing what I'm you know, I'm not wearing what my dad wore. So that started huge and the whole the there was a much higher value. And I guess this goes as much for women because women have always kind of had more of like, a value of self expression. Like, you had more more chances and options to to to manifest your taste rate. Right. Whereas menu would admit what you like to. Yeah. Yeah. And a black hat, and that's just what it was whereas nineteen sixty become way way more important for young people to feel like they had to say something with well, there's ward their close air. Yeah. Absolutely. So that that really started changing of them that just got crazier in the seventies. Yeah. The PR. With bell-bottoms and Paisley's, and so many excessive as a huge, callers and big time, right and colors and white Souso fun with huge pants. Funnest? Was it like that? Was you know that between the fifties in the seventies? Yeah. One eighty totally different and the peacock revolution in the late sixties and early seven in seventy s I should say was like the only time in like a hundred years where the silhouette of menswear chain. Yeah. Yeah. It wasn't like square shoulders small waist straight pants, or like, you said like the suit three-piece suit. People got rid of the jackets and started wearing like leather jackets, and Jean jacket jackets, and I just sort of threw everything out the window because it through everything also along with that culture the window as well. Wasn't just every actually have been close. It was reduction of that whole social construct. Yeah. Right. Jean jacket, and you you wanna talk with Jean. Yeah. Well, when you think about men's wear like. It's hard not to. I mean, there's so few things that you can. That's not true. That's not that. They're so few things there. So few in comparison to. Certainly, but they're the, gene denim jeans. Vice Ross and denim jeans. Changed the game. Dow for started as a work wear and work where has always existed throughout the whole this whole time. Most of the images that you see in all of these trends and stuff are for the elite, sir working office. You were gonna city if you had you had once you weren't every tempta-, and your underwear changed kind of thing. It wasn't a whole lot of difference for for men who were working, but farmers and laborers Labor's. Yeah. A lot of options there was a wall pant concert. Now. You just were until all part, and then you fixes anywhere until it fell part again, and you fix it. Again. He didn't have a lot, but denim started. In San Francisco. We've I stress was using this fabric that the tents for all the guys who's coming up to the goldrush they running. He's fouled Ray needed heavy duty stuff. Yeah. Because they're working fucking hard in the mountain as the rail where and Denham. The word denim comes from denim like from name, France, like names, M I and I m e s the name which is where the fabric for all of these tents in canvas and stuff was made. And thought that the name Donema from him. That's it. There's nothing. Awesome. Do save without some crazy. Just like from France essential. And what I shot it that was sort of revolutionary change sort of how everybody. Like why why became so important is like pants made from this fabric had existed before as we're pants, but they always fell apart in the same places. They always, okay, sure. And the pockets always ripped and tore just from overuse, actually, there's a great documentary on Levi's denim jeans on them to channel which. Ooh, that's good. But he re- he put rivets in the ends of his pockets that just seem like a decorative element now. Right. Because they're ever every gene has them or not. But he was the first guy to do that. So the rivets reinforced those seem so your pants would last wait longer. Sure. Exactly at stress points like in and out of your pocket. Right. Exactly. So like, the Levi's you're using your pockets. Yeah. And like the button fly on the front Jabber zipper could particular problem or move. There wasn't per zippers. Not not that no matter then. Yeah. And not that heavy duty like there was I'm sure for like women's dresses, but not were gonna core. You know, heavy. Yeah. And the little leather tab on the back. Yeah. Whatever sure will not about loop the the little leather tab with the two horses poll. Yeah. To do anything like that. And then they put the red tab. Oh, you on the back in such a a thing that everybody needs to have Levi's they put the little red tabs. You can see from far away that the guy wearing the the red tabs. It was relieve ice and the little that little. Yeah. On the. Yeah. That have all become such. There's tags. Many different companies use takes the stitching on gene pockets are. Riot, terry. Right. Like, you know, this had this Brian has this one in Brentwood, this one and and Levi's has been around since the eighteen thirties or something like they've been around for ever forget it. It's definitely an eighteen hundred eighteen thirties that they sort of stuck around going strong. And there I just right now. Right now. Yeah. I I love Levis. They're they're cool. Brand name my favorite genes have been Levi's ever. Yeah. Absolutely. Yeah. Levi Strauss was like the first guy to do it. And then people started wearing them not for work. Yeah. And that was that was a that was a big deal a non wearing probably in the fifties. Maybe I guess I don't even know them as more like just like you would wear them out in public like you wouldn't just wear them in your house or out on the farm. Yeah. Always leave out. The look the Marlon Brando James. Shirts and t shirt jeans. Marilyn Monroe had pictures of her jeans for social wearing pants. Yeah. Second of all these like work pants. It was in like the sixties or the seventies where they were actually made for like, you could buy a pair of pants made four a woman shirt. Not just whatever go to the farm supplies to. Yeah. Just happen to wear them. Yeah. Started to design them and stuff. Yeah. Okay. Belt loops routed in nineteen twenty two the red tab trademark was nineteen thirty six concealed back pocket. Rivets in thirty seven and zippers routed to some styles in nineteen fifty four. To sting. Yeah. But they were for like Cowboys and farmers and the other thing that I thought was the thing that one of the things I love about menswear. That's totally unique in my opinion to menswear as a silhouette. And I was like a style is western. There's not there's not a lot that you can compare it to like a heavily embroidered kind of peacock easy. Sure. Kind of design shirt, right? Yes. Just got married, and he married in western shirt is awesome. Like the employee. The pointed yolks and staff right on the front and the back. The though shirt that Chris got married in nap this naps, the Pearl. Snaps treatment is really big. I think there's I was gonna say white read. Yeah. Yeah. That whole cuff has piping and has the the six Pearl buttons that design of that cuff has been copyrighted by the company that made the shirts and that company's been around since the sixties or seventies as well. And things like. Like leather bootleg in jeans forever. Yeah. Like all those western movies from the fifties forties. Fifties sixties seventies all of them that that look is is very American super Merican Connex of the world over and it's very unique to menswear. It doesn't really exist. The same way for women. No, there's some element. There's certainly not Catholic cowboy hats women really wear like not at the time. And when I think about western when it comes to where but that was just him taking his. Yeah. Exactly. And which happens all the time that happens. I mean solar on basically invented that with this take stuff. Yeah. Can't things like plus we briefly, but like western jackets with the fringe and piano love with fringe invent fringe bags and fringed jackets and like a classic motorcycle. Jack with the fringe and stuff, and it seems like kind of frivolous and ridiculous. And I think they're awesome. I personally love it. Like, it's I dunno out ever where it would never be caught dead different. But, but the reason that that fringes there is so that wind and rain and snow and water that was coming out and dirt and mud riding a horse riding on a motorcycle would run off the sleeve and off the jacket into the fringe, and then a would disarray from the way the body. So there's a reason for that. And now, obviously, it's a big fashion thing. Sure. Well, but. By a motorcycle jacket that has fringe, and that's why people still wear them. Yeah. And people wear them. I don't know if they wear for that recent every, but that was the reason that it was put on in the first place, which I thought was totally I thought it was just like weird kind of again like this peacock thing of being of western where that's really heavily embroidered. Again. This is more like the sixties fifty sixty seventies. And that kind of style that it really gained its prominence, but the fringe has been around forever. And that is the reason why there's an actual practical. Yeah. Interesting. And when you're talking about you were talking about. The higher end. And when things changed from. Suits. We were talking about old timey stuff too. So we can now move maybe two more modern contemporary stuff because you have. Yeah. Thrones were our knowledge. Yeah. Yeah. Well, when I when we first started talking about doing this men's where Assode I thought what could I bring to the table as the man as the? And it's the only man with a Pena's in the whole. You both. Are we both are? A woman it's fluid gender. It's a spectrum actually. I'm a man, you're a man, we're all matter. Don't I personally don't last time? I. I've. I've always had a weird relationship with like menswear, proper like. A different. Do because first of all you'd greatness guard. I I literally have men skirt high fashion tapped into. Just like leather kilts. Okonya? That's another interesting Doug events, where two very very cool like those really old time videos. They did during the war. What are they called? The there's a really corny guy like talked league narrating the video share like a inflation video propaganda. Pretty. But it's a really interesting one of the making kids Kennedy so kosten eating kilter. Amazing. Very interesting all of the pleats by hand weaving all the weaving. Yeah. Oh, my term mazing. There's like seven meters of fabric or summer, ten in whatever. Depending on the waste. Yeah. In ton and a half. But you never have to wash them. Yes. Yeah. Anyway, we sort of off track off of. Consistent. Yeah. So when I was thinking about what I had to say, I've always had a relationship with men's were like proper menswear because like when I was a kid like, I never leave. Liked to where I was. I was always interested in women's clothing like from various rain that was. Yeah. So I never understood like gender norm in clothing, and like why wasn't allowed to wear dress. Sure, whatever. But you're yet. But but like as you get older and everything, and especially when I started getting into fashion, my ad got me this really cool book. It's a how basically like how to dress yourself as a classic, man. It was like an Esquire book is super tiny little book, really cute. And it shows you how to tire indifferent nuts how high bowtie and like how to match prints were. And like getting all of that information. That sounds awesome. Actually. It's an amazing book. Yeah. We'll put a link to that as well. And. Basically what I wanted to talk about was this this offshoot of fashion from menswear that is not what you would at all expect when you think of classic men's where it's like the Kris van Assche like the Dior the rough Simmons brick, oh, and they going I this. In the same breath of having it'd to youth culture in the sixties and seventies did. Yeah. There's this movement and like the late nineties early two thousand wear men's fashioned was at this point where it was all about like this really macho muscular guy the metro metro section, which is kind, geez. Exactly. Mark the whole nine yards and also the like lumberjack sort of grungy. Yeah. Kind of image as well. But I feel it grunge kind of came into this. What I want to talk about was this movement kind of spearheaded by rough Simmons who just recently was at Dior. Right. And he decided that like the style of the fashion with him and his friends decided the fashion of the time didn't really suit them in the way, they looked the way their bodies were lifestyle lifestyle, and he started to design clothes for him and his friends, and it was like closed for like these like the the way he presented everything was on like this really like androgynous looking guy who's paled didn't have that super fake tan. Superbike loyal now like. Like the classic American looking kinda guy like weird eastern. European with weird features like alien is. It wasn't the the preppy guy in the in the Ralph Lauren. Exactly. Yeah. Totally and like. Abercrombie and Fitch bit. Yeah. Definitely definitely definitely not probably wouldn't be shot by Bruce Weber for anything in the near future. No probably more of a year. Teller kind of. Yeah. Yeah. But that whole when I definitely when I started getting into fashion news, really interesting for me. I never really wanted to do menswear and menswear was something kind of just fell in my lap. When I started my company, and even now like, our menswear isn't proper menswear adult. It's very unisex. And probably always will be because I don't really see myself as being anything like that. But. I always just really loved that idea of. Like bucking the system, which is shown up a lot of times over the years. Manifest ways. It's not that things new fashion. Yeah. Very cyclical, but it was just something that I really latched onto definitely more. So when we when I went to Zion school when we kind of forced on your exposed to these things and you're exposed to this. If you don't like stuff you do. Yeah. And you can narrow what you do like. Yeah. Like, I literally there's a story attached. It was like I was horribly take an astray in style wise when I was getting ready for my graduation, and what I was going to wear say. I remember when I met you like when you when you met me. I'd definitely do. Oh my goodness. No, not anonymous. Yeah. But I I just found what works for me as like my. And I when I when I got ready for my graduation. I it was two thousand ten dodging gonna had just done this collection of metallic stuff for menswear absolutely needed. This. Like this look was it was a silver suit white shirt skinny black-tie J manual from Erica. Later. Newell, j manual and I needed it. And I got it. And I was I was so happy. But in retrospect, I was led astray by the fashion system because they were only something that was never gonna work was skinny little weird. Boy gonna look good in the suit. It was definitely not cut for me when I should have been going though, the rest Dior, I'm sure I'll turn it it alternative kind of way black black. Yeah. Of course, I'm wearing today. Actually, steel blue I ordered a jacket it's called a chore coat, and it is incredibly similar to definitely. Where's he was cope more kobylt? Yeah. I just I love Levis again, super utilitarian. But yeah. So I don't think out of the bucks because he has Warren blue today also bring black. Don't get excited. Another thing I want to touch on about men's whereas that a lot of things in men's where as opposed to him as where like things talking about this jacket come from necessity. Really liked about men's whereas it's much more functional. Totally like you were saying about that's why like about the jeans yesterday and western wear, and then ruling your cups because it was raining like that trend started because thing with rose. Yeah. Unlike womenswear where God knows why. And it was just about the current payment. Exactly. Yeah. We're pretty. Yeah. It didn't matter if you couldn't walk through a door, exactly standup, misogyny. Oh, yeah. Yeah. You needed help to relates? Yeah. Misogyny is alive and well in history. Definitely for sure. Yeah. Yeah. That's the thing that like we were talking about before like car hearts, and the like that heavier duty kind of utilitarian chore coats, that kind of look that it doesn't really matter. You could be a man or woman wearing it. And you're there to do a job and your military things like military can come and go in women's that women's fashion. But every season somebody will have some sort of military something Parenti a coat a pant, whatever on the runway. If you're if you're a menswear. Yeah. Again, it's utilitarian. It's it's peeling. Yeah. It's it's a sellable just inland. I'm oh. Yeah. In the catalog of possible menswear design Shirley says. Yeah. Almost half of them have something to do with the military. Apple. It's or like share jacket. Okay. Or the placement and all that stuff. Yeah. And like those items are so easy to go to and like pay cut and paste and do your make your the new fabric. Yeah. I'm not. No. I I do wanted to touch on this one one of my favorite sort of classic menswear. It's changed now, obviously. But when my favorite like menswear looks it's just so conic menswear and Canadian is the RCMP red Serge. Ooh. Is that like Dorothy? Like, the job per pants with white high question boots in that red jacket with with l and the, Yup. That will never not be look, fabulous fabulous. Yeah. Who you are here who's wearing it your yard and give you an image of like strength, and like fierceness, but also. You know, the gentleness ride and. Yes. A lot of the very few things that is recognizably Canadian certainly for fashion. Probably the only. Yeah. Unless you wanna look like like a buffalo plaid, maybe even my I don't know Hudson American. The only other thing I think of is like I can't think of it like an intimate coat. Yeah. Yeah. But again, that's. That's another center flush. Yeah. That's not. Nothing that like someone who's never seen Canada before look at and be like that's Canadian. Yeah. Maybe maybe the the point blanket coats from. Stripes. Yeah. Much to my chagrin. Well, even the cash and sweater Pendleton says our panel letters. Oh, really? Yeah. Americans. He's a couch and sweater. They say it's the dude where's penalties winter. Well, there's a whole other. Ripping cultural appropriation. We still we keep talking to answer. We'll have to do that one time. I feel like we need someone here. Who knows a lot of our guest up. So. Maybe you're somebody somebody do that. All right. Well, we could go on and on and on. You know, my no my bladder. Okay. Well, should shouldn't allow them always need to p because we're drinking heavily yet? So. Almost. Overview, and this is only will really talking again. I mean as men's fashion shows, we didn't even talk about PD Walmer would. She's like men's fashion week. It's its own thing kind of outside fashion week that happens at Florence twice a year. I'm guessing. Yeah. And like all the like hottest list super awesome. Like do like old Italian dudes. Or like, there's one guy. I forget his name. Now, he's like one of the fee it guys when the fee the guy the family big Italian family. He's like this red headed Italian guy. He's like the guy. Yeah. There's so many, and they're, you know, they're all over Instagram over there over Esquire, and they're really promoting modern menswear. So maybe we can just do a hold up so definitely day because shut out. Shut up. Yeah. Show to my friend James who suggested Menzer as topic listener. So thanks for the suggestion. We jumped on it. And I hope it was good. And I'm sure we'll come back to it again. Thing. Take Cooley make sessions. There we go trying to get the thing to do the boogie Blunk. Very technical. We're back, and we have some things that we are obsessed about always always things rattling around in these brain box of ours. Like it or not we like it or not. What are you will start with you start? I had an impromptu trip to IKEA oldboy grab the baby we went ahead meatballs in front for dinner. And then we did a little tour. It's like free much say free, but I still spent hundred bucks. You can't go into cans three entertainment for the kit. Just go with the couches, and she climbs on all the catches boy so much time tires are out go to the kids area. She's plays with all the fucking toys. That's what I do. When I go to. Roll around and all the beds. It's great, but I was going through. And I saw this display of these new this new series snooty little line called glow. Dundee forget what it means. And it was just this weird cartoon like it was a very specific style and illustrative style in these different motifs in these little alien characters and stuff. These little cartoon guys, which is very different. Like, obviously, look like it was its own thing as opposed to just like a do. They cover whatever right on the carpet. This tiger rug that looked like a tiger skin. But it was like a rug a pile rug. But it has like cartoon head. It was like tiger body with this weird block tiger head on it like. Oh, you're ill. Margaret, let your dad so lucky we have no room for this tiger because they would. So who'll and then I looked at it, and they had stationary and bedding and wallpaper and wrapping, paper and storage, boxes, and all these awesome things by this guy. This artists called vaulter van Buren dunk for the ball. That's the greatest name. I've ever heard maybe Walter alone Bearn dunk. I think if you yeah, I don't think you could have if you've made that up. I would've had there's no. You're just put onto German shit together. Actually, Belgian part of the Antwerp six which is a very influential artists collective that came out of anti-europe in the nineteen eighties. I think including people like trees van Noten an end demille miester. And that sort of that's crowd that sort of crowd is very cool alternative hip. Young people who are now I don't know from in their fifties. Who are also still super cool, and this guy I can't believe I've never heard of him. And he is these this visual artist from Belgium, and he just does the cool stuff, and I found his website. Walter beer and knock dot com because as have his name five million, and it's like Super Bowl, bright cartoony. Funny. Six Ewell weird. Awesome things. That's like lot of stuff from nature and a lot of stuff from a whole bunch of different like ethnical or ethnic influences. And just really like a bunch of social commentary stuff and. He's just got this. Awesome. Awesome website where itself, and there's all the like the menu choose from for like exhibitions publications whatever bio is just weird cartoon version of him was like a little weird like the bathroom style, man. Like just a weird outline. Oh, yeah. Like this guy with a big beard because he's has his huge long giant like below is boobs beard, and there's a little ding Dong. Changes color and his ding-dong dangled. Goes to the next page. You could just whatever see, but he's also a fashion designer, and I went to vote calm, and he has like so many collections won't vote. Calm and it's weird shit. He's like super again, one of those like early onset cult designers that then another another person will adopted and water it down a little bit make it a little more digestible, but he's got some fucking cool shit. And I don't really go for the super weird fashiony stuff. But for some reason, just because I don't maybe I looked at art. I in that I looked at his fashion that made more sense to me. And I just liked it more that way. And like he's designed like the YouTube pop tour nineteen Ninety-seven like all the costumes signs and stuff was like super iconic tour of the giant lemon. So it's unbelievable stuff. You have to look this guy stuff up. He's hilarious. He's a super cool like older guy with a giant beard and just the stuff from Akia is great. It's super fun and weird. And yeah, so go check a Walter one Buren dunk, just even for the dingo even just for a little Dingle. Sounds good. I'm surprised you have you are usually have your finger on the pulse of all those guys. I try to stay on. And it's the type of art that I like I like really poppy bright colored like early Stein stuff, you know. So it was just like, oh where have you seen? How have you slipped cracks my whole life? And like, I don't I I was I was excited and also shamed. He came to at the right moment. Yeah. What on through? I the bellyful of meatballs. Right. Chasing toddler. Oh on what's your rattling? A few weeks ago? I went to the movies with my brother and his boyfriend and my good friend v front of the podcast. Yes. Wonderful wonderful. Yeah. And we went and saw the new Tilda Swinton vehicle. It's called a bigger splash. It's kind of like a modern retelling of this movie from the sixties called Lepustin Bocquet. Okay. Schneider which was concurrently like another point of reference that I used for collection in the past the imagery from the scene, and this movie is just like it's everything you'd ever want in like this like a summer film. It's visceral it's beautiful the closer gorgeous. The people are gorgeous, the setting gorgeous. Everything's everything is everything is sumptuous like the food amazing. I just love these all these movies where you just like sink into a different world Shah, and like, and it's so weird because for the whole movie till the plays will the whole premise of movies Tilda Swinton places rockstar. Who's kind of like this mixture between David Bowie, and Janice Joplin, I guess, okay? And super famous super famous like like, very she wears crazy like costumes on stage make up and everything and the concept of the story is that she had like vocal surgery. So she can't talk the whole fucking movie. Well, she she kind of whispered, she can communicate and she's like in this villa in Italy somewhere on the public closer to the coast of I don't know like on the Mediterranean somewhere. Beautiful and she's there with her or her bow and suddenly out of nowhere. Her ex producer next lover comes in with his new just realize his daughter that he didn't know he had for like, okay years. Yeah. It was all of these different. They're connecting for the first time. And it's just like this all of these different relationships overlapping each other and flash history and anywhere close to get to the Clinton the important part. Rassam designed the whole wardrobe participant in from Dior, and those are amazing. Stand is just it's like the closer such a part of her character where the old stuff that she wore when she was a rockstar. Yeah. Was like the crazy like beaded jumpsuits that did like a couple old cool stuff. And like the weird like seventies vibe that they had going on. But then the stuff that she wears when she's in the villa. She's like take his shirt. Easy. Life was like super clean like this bathing suit that is like completely backless except for the front, and it's this big front. It's all white. So she can she wears this same Dior mole film and her little till the hair and like her weird makeup that she does. And like all of these really sculptural pieces compared to everyone else who's dressed like goddamn tourist and the whole she's just like this minimalist mega Shiro goddess just floating around. Just push this perfection, and Garnett. Yeah. Really good movie too. It's amazing. The movie itself is amazing the plot in it. They'll just be like watch like two it was two hours long. And it wasn't long enough. Interesting. Definitely recommend a bigger splash. Starring till Swinton Ray fines is also in it and Dakota Johnson of. Yeah.

Organic Tapestry Weaving, Erin Barrett - A Premium Workshop

"Hi everyone welcome to the crafters box. Podcast were adding an extra episode this month as we gear up to release our third premium workshop a workshop that we've built with. Weaver Aaron Barrett from Charleston South Carolina. Aaron has worked with us to build a large scale. Oversize weaving workshop with which explores her beautiful organic weaving techniques utilizing both bulky yarn and roving custom roving in gorgeous colors. Definitely a treat in this workshop. Is Errands teaching style? And the beautiful handcrafted looms that we've designed just for the purpose of this workshop and all kinds of future weaving we thought about. What is the perfect overseas? Loom and what features and benefits can we put into a floor? Loom that maker would like to have in their home. The floor loom was crafted here in San Diego and partnership with a wood craftsman who has built each loom for us out of Maple. This beautiful floor loom comes in two sizes with a forty eight inch size so a four foot by four foot weaving surfaced as well as a thirty six inch size for those looking for something. Maybe just a hair smaller. It has adjustable legs so it can be tilted in either direction as you work. A Lotta Weavers find. This is really helpful with posture and as they work through a weaving from top to bottom. They like to have it at different angles so we were sure to add that feature. It can be adjusted to sit high so the weaving surface can actually be used while you're sitting in a chair standing and then adjusted all the way to the floor. We've thought about things that such as tensions. So as you work through the center of your Lou and this really happens on any oversize loom. You'll start to notice that. The tension of your warp strings. Pull down at the center. The center bars of the loom and Kinda can create sort of a curved. Top to the loom you may notice that it begins to warp. We've added bracing mechanisms and components to the loom to help across the board. We've really spent quite a bit of time. Crafting something that we think that our community will love and we hope it will be your one floor. Loom that last you forever super excited to work with Aaron on this project and to bring it everybody this holiday season as you guys know.

That's the fun is sort of seeing what seeing what you can. Come up with. there's also a bulky natural colored yarn that you'll be using for the tassels in the base of the weaving along with old ribbon that again you're welcome to either us or feel free not to use and then you have custom acrylic needles for just weaving. Stroz Work Stream. And you can. You can just create a go and what I think is just so cool about this is the investment in an oversized loan of peace. That really we were just talking about how you know how fun they are to have in your home space and just kind of be able to jump on in jump off a piece of art progress which you know as not. There's not a whole lot of mediums. Where it's just easy to pick up where you left off and keep going and working your way through a gorgeous oversized tapestry. Is just a really great way to spend any time of the year but especially fall? Jahra area all band Cozy Lizzy. I like to say who got experience. Absolutely yes high numbers in the larger looms too is I find that Being able to like sit in a chair. Sit where you're comfortable and we even like you said sort of setting aside and coming back to it and then taking a step back giving it a few days and then coming back to it. It's so fun I mean I always have a project going on my larger loom at home. I have a couple of loons around the house and there. Hey I laugh at how long it takes minutes in issue evening because I I'll pick it up for like a you know an hour. Something like that and then you know. Move along and do something else like three months later. I'm back so roy everyone that long. But there's something inspiring about seeing your work and working your way through it as needed and and we've just I feel like we have built these really wonderful looms. So we've we've kind of taken the best of frame looms and we've applied it to a floor. Loom style with adjustable legs and the ability to kind of you know to just have a very diverse loomed. That is you know we. We took our first design and we educated on it. We made it stronger so that it wouldn't warp and we added some components to it like backbone graces and so forth. I think once everyone figures out what it's like to work on the very who marge space so quickly c That you know we've been spending. We've been spending months making something. Just that were super excited and proud to elise to the maker Community and I'm so honored to collaborate with you on it. Oh my Gosh I've been pursuing. Us An artist for years. I was so happy when it finally worked up this year. Heck yeah this was. I was wonderful timing if we go back in time and bit and back to when you first started weaving and creating Tell us a little bit of a what that creative journey looks like for you the beginning well way way back. I actually used to be a professional ballet dancer So I think you know. I've always had this sort of artistic and creative output being able to do something that I loved and express myself for so long and then in two thousand in two thousand ten. I got married and had my daughter the following year so I wasn't dancing professionally anymore and I started teaching and I and I loved teaching Valet. It was wonderful and being a new mom and it was great but I you know after a couple of years I kinda forward to get back into creating something myself and being able to express myself again and not feeling just sort of got stronger and stronger and One day I just was searching around on Pinterest or online or somehow came across a tutorial for making your own woven wall hangings and I think. Oh this'll be fine. Give me something to do and work with colors and textures and it just sort of immediately took I loved it and it was. It was a way for me to stay at home with my daughter and sort of creating in. It started out as I wasn't. I had no intentions of selling anything that I was making. It kinda started out as friends warning them and family wanting them and then I thought well maybe I maybe I could do this and make create a living for myself doing something that I really enjoy doing. That allows me to express myself creatively and it just sort of fake open and Azi shop and it just sort of took off from there if you think about the style that you've curated over time because I would definitely say you have a signature looking. Feel that you're being well known for you have a few you have some that are more shape driven and some that are leaving work. Ganic and roving. Based how has that evolved? I would say it definitely started out when I was first learning and and I making leavings. I didn't really work with roaming all maybe a little bit. I I kind of kept it. I enjoy doing a more geometric shapes and I think that was a good way for me to get learning. You have to do a lot of trial and error and figuring out and learning you know not to pull too tight here and pull tight enough here kind of a lot of math. When you're doing geometric shapes like that making sure everything rains up so I think that was how it really started and then I would say maybe like over the next year or so. I started to experiment more with adding in different materials. I remember doing right some beads and then adding in ribbon and trying to kind of figure out my voice you know once. I decided that this is what I wanted to do and was going to try to you know really sell them in and make a career out of it started kind of dialing in trying to figure it figure out what it was that. I wanted to say and what my work looked like. And then I remember the first piece I made. I had I got some really pretty blue roving and I thought you know like well. Is that a planning this? Adam just kind of go and see what happens and sort of create this organic slowing you know pattern or shape. More than a very geometric tightly woven piece and Once I did I was like wow. This is what I really. This is great. I I feel like I found my my voice but I also continued to liked him. Finish geometric felt like. Why don't I just offer both? Sometimes you take your weavings off the sort of well off loom of course but but kind of that traditional you know hanging wall tapestry. And you've turned them into pillows In Pain Jacket in the back of Jean Jacket. What what inspired you to get? You just really creative in the application of readings after a while I noticed that once my brand was really growing and I wanted to experiment more with what else we could do. And kind of take it to another level. the jacket sort of happened on accident. I remember my mom was visiting and I was like. Oh my gosh I have this great idea wonder if we could somehow put a weeding on the back of a jacket and it took a lot of trying to figure it out in my mom so Sweden awesome. She's like very creative and she can. So let me see if I can make this weaving and cut it off and you can search on the back and shirtlessly did it. And I posted a photo to my instagram account of very rough. You know I try and people loved it and and I loved it. I thought this would be a great way to kind of combine two different worlds here of being able like a wearable art. You know In the pillows started in as is trying to reach different clients and customers and I feel like the wall hangings do have tend to be a little bit more of a Bohemian Sort of you know vibe is definitely something that's not new. It's been around for ages but It definitely has like. I think certain look to it and so for those customers would be essential customers who may be didn't WANNA wall hanging. I thought wall maybe I could take what I do and turn it into something else. And that's fair. We started doing your pillows. We definitely did reach new customers once we started doing. Not How your bags are you brag? Yes the back so good San Woven the name. Where did the name from while my daughter's name is sunny and it funny because when I was pregnant? She's now she's almost eight. My husband had decided very early on that he wanted to name her Sunday. And I was just kind of like no now. I WanNa like this name this name this name. We could never agree. In the moment she was born I was like she is a sunny and she is just like full of life and sunshine and positively should just the sweetest and so when I started my brand What I wanted to I wanted to put my energy into and put out there. You know what color was like the biggest inspiration and I felt so happy when I was leaving and I wanted my wings to hanging homes and bring people joy when they looked at them and I thought you know sunny son woven in ages all went very perfectly together. This funny about kids may have we my three daughters. We we by husband and I were kind of you know debating back and forth on their names and we always name them like in the hospital at the last minute and even when you're not I wasn't a hundred percent sure but I felt the confidence that it was a good one and then years later. You're like Yep there that name and you're good to go back to the hot. They lift live up to their name. They definitely now. I love that all right so the next question is a little bit selfish because I I love your design aesthetic. Your home is beautiful. Or how has that sort of your design curation? Obviously that extends in place so well into your and the aesthetic of your your art in your wall weavings as well that you're recently featured in a magazine. Tell us a little bit about how you know. You've bill your home and how you carried it over time. It's funny I. I kind of started to businesses at once in a way of but I when you were when I first started. Weaving me wear Living in a smaller house and like we talked about earlier before the podcast. To as the business was growing I had more and more loons more more supplies and I was running out of space. Some and I knew I didn't want to rent rent a studio space to work. I liked working from home and I liked being able. I was pregnant again this time. So this was two thousand in Fourteen yes when I started two dozen fifteen ish and I knew that I wanted to keep doing this and working from home and my husband also have works from home. He's a musician and he needed a little bit more space. So we kind of. We're on the Heintz looking for a house that could accommodate our family life and our work life and sort of view it as a kind of a work homelife compound in a way and we found this. House that we're in now in it needed a lot of work and a Lotta laugh but I thought this would be a good opportunity for us So we got this house and moves in and I was very pregnant at that time but I kept the business going and we did renovation and throughout that process I realized how much I also loved design and putting together spaces and homes and I feel like a to definitely go hand in hand. You know so much of what I'm making with the with the wall hangings as they are a piece of art a style. Them you know in photo shoots and in my own home and I think about what would I want to purchase? You know to bring into my home and like I said earlier you know bringing in joy and comfort and happiness and everything that you're bringing into your house how how can I reflect that through what I'm making So I do feel like the two kind of went hand in hand and I just really enjoyed putting the house together. I think maybe because we spend so much time here since we will work from home and Live here with our kids. We've worked really hard to make it a really special place for us and we feel really really blessed. It's been wonderful. Is it your forever home? Do you think I would like to think so? He having all of this space to work and have the kids. I think it will be our forever home while we still have young kids in the House I think if it were for our kids were grown and gone. It's a lot of house for just two people. It's a lot of work you know. Is We have to keep up with our studios faces. You know I mean I have a full two rooms that are just my work area. And he has workspace so it is great. But it's kind of Dr Dey's Ron Lincoln's too much lot that HDTV article is the one that comes to mind. But I think you did something with Dwell magazine as well. Was that more on your studio or was that all off. Yeah the first big feature that we had. I was contacted by better homes and gardens and that was I think in two thousand sixteen and they just loved the idea of both of us kind of like living and working out of the space and wanted to do a feature and I thought that was really fun and I do think that the houses unique you know. It's in the ways of secondary seventies style ranch And has a lot of open space and it it's just it is a variant inviting and welcoming home. We love that in like kind of how much opens up into the outdoors and sort of very indoor outdoor which I think is nice but Yesterday contacted us and they wanted to kind of do a feature on my studio along with the rest of the house and the kids and so that was really exciting and then from there. We've done a few more online apartment. Therapy and dwell glitter guide. Also did the same thing just sort of home tours night. Taking a look. It's interesting we've done so many but the house kind of is constantly changing So I always feel every second every time we do one. They're they're different on and yeah and then we did. Hdtv last year so awesome will such a neat way to kind of to share your work in your art because art extend past you know just one style of making for sure. Just a beautiful. I love love. Love seeing updates and anyone who's following along you guys optic check out Instagram said woven. Right now. And and scroll through because you're you do a great job of style and your home with your pieces on it. So organic how you kind of flow between a post of a weaving and then opposed to a weeding in your living room or your kitchen or a bedroom space or something like that. I love it so much. Thank you I think to a big part of habits you go hand in hand is when we were working on the house so I wanted to be intentional about what we brought in that things were you know had meaning brought us joy and that were important and what I making something. That's so from my heart and and handmade and I want it to be something that people are proud to hang in their homes and like I said make them happy and really help kind of tied in and create a alternate living space in. Your home is where you live and you should. I feel my happiest when I'm at home so I think that it's it's important. It may just be you know something that you're hanging on your wall but it can mean a lot and I hope that what I do meet lots of people so because it means so much to me. Tell us what a typical day looks like for. Erin okay very exciting and also not exciting at the same time but we get up in the morning and as I mentioned. My husband is sometimes. He's on tour sometimes. He's home so when he's home life worse a lot smoother and when he's away right now he's home so we get up in the morning and get the kids up and get them ready. We dropped my daughter off for school first and then we have about an hour and a half before Bowie. My son goes to preschool. So during that time we usually take turns working out. We have a Peleton bike which we love so we'll take turns doing it. Quick Class at home and then Get to school and then I get a studio ride around ten o'clock and I'm in there working about ten to every day one thirty or to go pick Bowie. Ya from preschool. All come home have a little bit more time with him and then go pick up my daughter from school and continue on with the You know your sure you know it. Welded the dinner best. Bedtime homework routine goes on forever. Get everyone ready in bed and then I usually go back to work In the evenings probably around eight or eight thirty and all our work again so maybe ten thirty or eleven Ainhoa and at that time it looks a little bit different than the daytime weaving time during the daytime in the studio. And it's sunny and I'm really listening to music or podcasts. Really really working. And then my nighttime leaving is more sort of agendas on the SOFA watching the office and working on working on smaller pieces if you were to think about kind of the breakdown of the time that you spend on your business that is dedicated to actually creating and making with your hands versus all of the other things. What does that look like he? I feel like I've gotten pretty good at multitasking After five years of doing it all myself I do have helped with some of the stuff on my site and you know it's kind of the everyday business but the majority of it is me like I will get in the car line to pick my daughter from school and I'll have my stuff and I'll do a lot of emailing then you know kind of carve out that time but I think in being in the doing something creative. I have to make sure if I'm sitting down to weave and really work that I have no distractions. I don't have my phone and I'm not trying to email while doing that. You know I sat time aside to really focus on what I'm doing so and I'm not saying I. It's Sundays I feel like I. It's it's a lot you know. I do find that if I really set the time aside to work and we've in that way and not have my phone around and really do on then I can. Then I can manage things better yet. Really separating the two crazy yeah yeah yeah obviously. Is there like sometimes at night? I'll do the computer stuff at night. Just because I'm feeling a little less inspired and I'm a little more tired and you know after the day. That's a better time for me to do that. And then in the mornings and now the sun is out in the studio and I feel energized. Then that's the best time for me to to create. There was a really cool book a while back in. About how you kind of have to find your time of the day because we all like. It was a very narrow anonymous time that is we have like two hours a day of like super could productivity time. Where you really have to prevent any distractions from because those are the two hours while we might work so many more than two hours. Those are the two hours we just are on fire and our Batas like ready to go and we're just in the zone Some people are more nights and were five. Am's your three in the afternoon. Yeah I love that and and I've noticed too hot days even where I'm more productive and I could be on a roll you know and Howdy my husband around. Nice because I can be like I'm really like I'm getting a lot of work done on this. I'm really feeling. Can you pick up the kids and then vice versa? He'll be like. Hey I'm you know I'm in the middle of this and I don't WanNA stop but Gotcha. I know the feeling you know so. That's nice you just kind of I mean it's a little tricky working from home in that way but if you can like you said recognize when you're feeling not pay attention to it. Do you can to nurture that. That definitely helped is your studio space in your in your home home with you kind of separated out where it's like moms working right now. Closing the door. It is in my home home and there's not even a door I actually took the door down. it's kind of like off of the kitchen is. I like having the kids come in in MBA part of it and if he also my home but it the way that I have it set up in the way that it sort of decorated is completely different from the rest of the house. So if feels like a different space to me when I come in and I try to be intentional in the mornings like you know working out. And then showering and getting dressed and then getting my coffee in going into the studio so that way I really. It's not just sort of like Blah Blah Blah going into here. I really do feel like I'm going into work but it's but it is in my house. Yeah Nah now does that make sense. They're older now so I can be like. Hey I need a little space. Can you guys go in this room or you know? Don't touch this. Don't touch that. You know it was a little bit trickier when they were younger for sure it all. It all works out okay. You love to be in it like I used to from my Home Office ally and just being able to hear my kids. Neither made me so happy and then other times. You're like Oh man. I just wish I could lock myself in a cave right now. While we high is near I will say this. The first year I was. I've always had kids while done this business. This is the first year I feel kind of a little bit more freedom. You know now that he my son who's four is in preschool for half of the day like there's a set amount of or and a half hours that is just mine that has made such a difference and it was hard. I get asked a lot like how do you do it? How do you do it for a while? It was I think if I had you kept up what I was doing the first three or four years I would have reached burn outlawed very quickly because it was mostly working at night and just sort of working pockets while it could but now. I have a little bit more freedom and it. Now it's the easiest spend and I'm really happy with how things are now and I still feel like you know. Then he comes home and so with the kids in the afternoon in dinner and all Adan. So it's it's nice when you think about preventing burnout mode. What are the necessary things that you need to do to make sure it doesn't happen? I have hired help. I started hiring help. Maybe shoe years ago mostly because I we do wholesale work through West Elm so there's a lot of orders there Along with Oh orders through my own site and I felt it as much as I love doing what? I'm doing I felt like I was just making the wholesale over and over and over and over again and I had no time to create anything new That's when I started feeling. Burn out when I felt I wasn't getting to be creative. I mean I'm still being create. I was making my product into everything even though I making the same designs over and over. Sometimes each one's totally different and unique and handmade and I loved it. But you still have this. You know the whole started was I wanna make new things and come up with new ideas and as it was hard to find the time to do that when so much of my time was just kind of making product So that's the first time I reached out for help. Trained someone have someone right now. Who's amazing? Her name is abby and She works in the studio with me and she helps out a lot so she's worked with me for two years. I taught her all of my designs and how to do them and she is here with me in studio so I can make sure everything's done to my standards and that's really I hadn't had done that. I don't think that I would. I don't think that I would still have the business right now. I think I would have reached. Burn out mode pretty quickly. The now I'm able to focus on bigger pieces and the commissions and Making new things and I have so much more energy and I. It's just like clarity of an excitement again because I I did start to feel that kind of fade away. You know what I feel like. That's the first sign of burnout when you're not excited to do the job that you love doing or create what you love creating that. It's time to sort of reassess your so now I'm back at feeling I mean every day. I can't wait and I feel like I get new ideas and I and I'm excited to do my job. I think sometimes it's okay to ask for help. You know whether it be. I've had help before with undoing more of the business side of Sauve You just Kinda have to see what you need where you need it and listen to that and and I think reach out for it. It's scary owning your own business. And you know money hiring people and that sort of thing but I always look at it as I want to continue doing this and I wanna continue creating and I want to continue my brand my business so like whatever I need to do to do that numb and get their to get to this point that I wanna be I just acknowledging that in taking the right steps having a wholesale client like West our has to be incredibly overwhelming and I can't even as a small business owner the supply and demand and whatnot. I can't even imagine. Yeah that's it. You're doing an amazing job. Thank you thank you and for a while I remember being it varies sore. Afraid to let anybody know that I had help Especially in the Department of someone helping me make my work. But you know I. I got over that because what we're making his. So I look at it as you know. I started this business and I it just creating something hand made in the US of high-quality with high quality materials With my designs and I found someone in my community who I trust and respect and brought them into my business and train them for two years. You know two and half. I'm fully in control of everything that's happening. And what's being shipped? Dow and that. I mean it's I don't think that's anything to be embarrassed of you now. And and the the only other option is to. I mean I don't know it. There's a cap at some point where you can't physically make you know and I was kind of hitting Matt Point where my business was just going to peak at one spot because I was just sitting and weaving constantly and I had no time to do anything else for my for my business or think about bigger picture things or new goals or new ideas. Because I was just meeting leaving leaving leaving waving for you know ten and twelve hours a day and that I don't think that's sustainable. Mo- yeah you would have to turn down incredible opportunities and actually no. I'm sure you already have to do that. But you know there's certain ones that it's kind of like you have to figure out how to make room for them because you know it's something you want to do with West Elm. I remember when they first contact me. I'm like there's no way how I do this. There's no way Then I thought it such an opportunity and it has been an amazing opportunity. I get new clients night reach a broader group of people and I respect the local program that they have you know showcasing handmade made in the US products for people's homes and It's great for small businesses. So I I wanted to be able to say yes to that. I had out a way to make it work if we were to think about like life. Hack that you'd like to share related to your business or your personal life. Is that it to find help. To grow or what. What can you share with us? I think along those lines lifelock is to stay decided you know like I sat To avoid if you're talking in business really just overall life stink cited and be positive for me like I said I was reaching a point just sort of you know doing everything right my business and making and loving what I was doing and creating with my hands and making a product but I did not feel you at. You have to nurture that creative self inside of you and I in to be able to do that. You have to find things on inspire you and rest and get out there and allow yourself the time to create new things and to see news aims and not. Just get so focused on like for me. I was just so focused on keeping the business going and making making making and it just became too much finding things in excite you and how you can express yourself and anytime I have an idea it might be so silly. I just try it. You know it may work. It may not some of the best ideas havoc the jacket was such as Surrey like random. Whatever I think you should really listened to yourself if you have an idea like that or something and it's always worth exploring and it may workout may. Not but you know. Stay curious and excited. I love that stay. Curious is there in crafting sale that you're loving or practicing or observing that you are not known for you know. I really want I. It's it's hard for me like I still spend so much time waving that. There's other things I wanted. Try but like sitting down in crafting after a full day of sitting down in crafting isn't necessarily you know it's hard for me. It's harder we'd take the time out of my work time to splurge something else you know which I guess. I'm not even taking my own advice. I need to do that. You know I really want to get better at punch needle and sort of incorporate other other crafting techniques into what I do. Yeah I would I would look at it I It's funny too because I think people assume again a lot of emails and questions that because I because I believe that I am crafty and I can't so I don't know how do I don't know how to Crochet. Don't know how to knit. But you know what I should learn. Maybe that's my goal for this year. For Twenty Twenty your pillows that you translate your work to punch it all so beautifully that you have to try it you dry. Yeah Very Meditative. Twenty twenty goal. I love it. That's awesome. So is there if we were to how we were to kind of just up where you're at today. Is there one word that that describes you? Well I'm in say optimistic. I've always tried to see the good in things and see the good and other people and see the good in my life and Reaching for new goals and just trying to stay positive and I think it's easy and our society end with the world that we're living in technology and everything that's going on to just get very bogged down. Sometimes and tired side tried to do things that make me happy and try to be positive and I really think that what you put out there comes back to you. firm believer in that. So that's sort of where I'm at right now as mom as business owner you know trying to really just keep going and stay positive as I can and optimistic about life. In general op now. Beautiful is you're contagious. You know that yeah you pass it on. I read something recently about starting your day by sort of sitting down in like listing. Things that you're grateful for that you appreciate or Just kind of like taking a look at your life overall and I think that that sometimes it's doing that can just be so refreshing and just like bring a new New Light to everything and see things in a different way because it's you know that data day kind of grind of having kids and work and Howelsen responsibilities that can sometimes to spe- a little issues. It's tough you know. Yeah I'm so so yes staying optimistic well you have the infectious personality and you just show it so well through your workshop video and You're wonderful teacher. Next month is going to be just such an awesome exploration of making in a totally different. We've never tackled something so big. So oversized in so fun Again Onto Divan unexcited. I hope everyone gets hooked on this says I I mean I I think once I started we ring. At least I've had anti can break smell but probably for the first two or three years. I don't think I want a day literally a without weaving even when I had my son. I had a loom in the hospital. Oh my gosh I like literally never I love it.

She ever looks at me because Carol Baskin is coming for me my body may go missing in the near future. As you all know. We've talked about Carol Baskin plenty of times on this podcast before dancing with the stars. We don't really fuck with her. That's really putting it lightly. I tweeted. I fallen for Carol Baskin Tears and that's that. So I didn't think anything of it I just tweeted that out. Monday. Night dancing with the stars. Sunday I'm scrolling on twitter and I get a notification from Carol. Baskin verified my heart sank my heart sank to my vagina. I. Literally could not believe what I'm seeing and she wrote. What you saw on Tiger King is not me if you care at all about who I am and I doubt it, my entire life is an open book at and then she put the link to her. Website in her youtube and. Plugged herself. But this has me shook I'm shook about it. You should really be on the lookout because. She is. Keeping receipts. I feel like she I'm assuming this honestly actually her and not like somebody who runs her social or who knows because you know sh First. Of all her wild twitter account like verified, she'll like two thousand followers like wild situation on twitter. And she. Must have spent her night just searching her own name because she replied to multiple tweets that were like talking about her would just. Diarrhea isn't open book add save the cats dot org like a TMZ article she did it. For like another thing about her being sued. Chicks Office tweet to it takes the office tweet where we're I mean we're toast. The reason I ever message for straight. Direct? Yeah the MEL she wrote A. Message to, but that's what I'm saying because I'm saying like I'm saying other people like she clearly researching her name where like. People are like Oh you you're all telling me. I gotTa Endure Carol, Basket Dizzy the Lion King next week. If y'all could have carol. Basson on dancing with the stars than OJ gets to do it next season. Literally, what is the matter with you? All like that person straight up compared her to Oj Simpson and she just copy and pasted the same message you got A. Hint like. Details? I got a different message than everyone else and not to frightens me she took the time to write. If you care at all about who I am and I doubt it. I I. Mean You're not on Carol Basket?

Don't I don't even say it I don't even want to speak it into the universe I'm not I'm not giving Carol Baskin unleashed a tiger into my apartment. I would jump in front of Norman I would save his life I would I would risk being eaten by yourself. I would sacrifice myself one hundred percent. So, if I go missing this week, you all know who did it? Thankfully, she didn't get sent home from dancing with the stars. That's that's one reason we could be happy. We did not hear stunt home. We know that she is out of damning stars. We know that she is there, but once she's eliminated and maybe she'll catch one Davar of our of our deadline. We gave her when she's eliminated the first person she's coming after me I I've already accepted my I think my twitter is toxic like Carol Baskin Justin Bieber Kris Jenner why? Why are these people paying attention to me just start ignoring me What was more shocking feeling this seeing Carroll Bass Connor Justin Bieber Justin, jazz even close John Is. More frightening this one is like Oh, Shit just while no actually Justin Bieber's I was more frightened. I can tell you right now I was more scared when I received a damn yes bieber than I am about. Somebody we actually care about now. Exactly. Get eaten by a tiger. That's kind of sick way to go out like we all have to die one day, and if mine is because cal baskin sent a tiger for me after I should on her for being on dancing with the stars. Kinda. Cool way for everyone to remember me goes with the show. I died doing what I love making content. You know protecting chicks in the office being honest on twitter Yup. It is what it is and. I love you all just in case. This is the last time you hear from a we have a great show planned for Thursday.

Sunday. Night are you GonNa Change Your approach like tomorrow live tweeting or whenever the stars is on. No Cow Baskin only made me want to talk about her more which is I know not you know maybe I should low. But now she's Yeah. Yeah. She's flirted with me a little bit now I'm like, Oh if I can get Carol Baskin to respond to me every time a tweet about her then. She might just make it to the daily list of tweets right? I kind of wish she like I defer interaction. Wise I'm shocked. I want her to build her twitter presence. Yeah. Get some eyeballs on your twitter account and chicks in the office. She's like a wild that she is. Kind of all snoot at twitter. She kind of scary that she is less join she joined. Yeah. Because it's like her real twitter account. This was like her coming out party on Twitter Yeah Yup she. joined. Like in March. So obviously when tiger king came out, but would you have carol on the podcast she me and was like I'd I'd I? WanNa. Talk this out. I'd have her one hundred percent would have her because I would I would straight a Bhaskar I'd be like, what's the deal your husband like? That's the one question everyone wants to know. Absolutely, but I think she would like try and sue US or or would not be allowed to talk about it. Yeah. One hundred percent I mean. I. Don't know how far. She's GonNa go without people asking her this question at some point you know of course but look at look at the length she'd took to take Joe exotic down like she's you're right. You're reminding me of why should be a little more care she's lawyered up baby she's got she's knows what she's doing. All right let's say safe. Let that's the most important thing. Let's stay safe. Everyone, we love you chicks in the office listeners, pray for me throughout the rest of the week and forever and yet ways. Now, it's time to get into the regular scheduled programing. This was something we had to record after we recorded the entire show. So let's get into it. Francesca, how're you doing on this lovely Sunday afternoon If we ignore football, I'm fantastic I a lovely weekend. We celebrated my boyfriends birthday in the weather. We kinda snuck a little late last second summer into this weekend. It was warm. We actually got to go sit down at the beach on Saturday, which was so nice ends. Sunday so far been pretty shitty just because The Eagles as just terrifying. It's really quite awful but you know here's my. Goal is tickle the die baggage if you want to hear about that and RIA. How was your week? Why weekend was fantastic I went to Montauk I dyed my hair again twice actually I dyed my hair twice this weekend. I really did enjoy the to blonde streaks I had in front of my hair like I know a lot of people hated on it but it didn't really bother me because I actually really liked it but the blonde pieces started growing out and then it was like my roots than the blonde pieces and I had it for two months and I was like I'm not gonNa have this hair forever. There's no way that I'm going to have to blonde piece of hair in front of my face forever. So yes, I'm if I'M GOING TO GO BACK To, Long. Island. To get my hair down on just dying the whole thing like I don't feel like going to just get those parts touched up. So. Then I did that but then I just had more blonde highlights. It wasn't. It wasn't brown I just I just added more. Right. It was like. It was like the same front blonde. But then just with also more blondes with more on house like listen. My hair is dark right now, if this is going to be the time that I'm going to be a Brunette Ben, this is going to be the time I'm going to be a Brunette I'm just going to go all dark one day I'll go back to blonde definitely one day with that is a day that is not. Coming soon because I killed my hair from going blind all my life since I was in fifth grade I just ruined my hair. So now it's very dark. If you see me on the streets, I got dark brown hair and I'm a new. Rio. Good. Thank you I. Love It i. think it looks fantastic because like you said, you know sometimes your hair needs a break and you are like. Darker. It's more your natural color. Your hair looks so healthy and full end and the luminous I keep using that word to describe your hair, but it really is i. I love it, and and on top of that, you kind of got that Hayes lie situation in the dark hair like makes it look like you have straight up green is so yes. I'm a fan of Brunette rea-. Thank you for having me out friend. You're making me feel good Yeah, I went back. So like we said, we got I got the highlights. And I went back on Sunday and I was like just get rid of highlights just get rid of them in total just all out dark. So yes, I am Brunette Ria and I feel good about it is my natural hair color you know yeah. So this is what I look like if I never dyed my hair. So have you have a problem with that I'm sorry I can't change it this way are I was sworn yeah exactly. god-given here and that way as lady, Gaga I would say yes And now I look more like my family members. Yeah. I will say that the family resemblance is like I feel like you are looking like your mom, which is a great thing because your mom is absolutely beautiful. So. would be so excited to hear that she's going to. She's going to cry at that. So. Shout out to row row row been looking great these days she and her up she stand tastic. My Mom is absolutely snatched like she. She's a queen she just. She was always beautiful. Obviously but she just been hitting Jim. Extra. Hard these days and just really taking care of herself. She looks fantastic. She really does. But now since my hair is just fully dark and there's nothing to tell me, you know what I mean like when when I had the blonde chunks in my hair, it's like, okay you know I have blonde chunks of my hair that's rea-. Some people may still think on blonde some people may think I have the blonde chunks hair what if you don't know I'm a Brunette and you see hank out walking with a Brunette and then you think he's cheating on me but it just A thought I've had now when I'm with Hank on like with a mask on and what if people think you're cheating on me because they don't know my hair color now? I. I kinda hope like someone takes his sneaky pig of you guys like out walking Norman or something, and they're like damn not only is that a new girl but they got her dog to. Not only use hank walking around with a red girl. He's introducing the girl to the dog and then I could be like, nope, that's me. I, love it though because you. You know. Could set up for little not seen get into your personal life too much. But a little sexy roleplaying situation. It's Lang your leg. Like A spy you're like a Brunette Russian spy maybe. On an accent. Oh my gosh. I like this like really icing it up That's just something to think about the stallion southern walk switch my wig make him feel like he's she in. Yeah. There you go up on. My also want to say that this weekend my birthday gift from rea- arrived in in the mail and. It's a hand painted mural work of art really just like should be in a museum of happiness begins jars, brothers on the back of a Jean Jacket, and it's so. It's so fabulous. I just need somewhere to wear it so badly, and it's just not something that I can wear on a normal day. But I need some somewhere to wear that jacket. So badly listen, we need a place that I can wear my Harry styles when you can wear the was as one and we can be freaks together. I did not hand paint it, but somebody else do. Want to point that out. And I will say I want to check 'cause I didn't check before I tagged all of them in the in the post. Kevin did see it so Kevin. Kevin's for strong. Saw The message the last few times. I've tagged him he has seen it and. Not. Reacted that's okay. It's only been twice. I don't really think that's okay. I mean. A photo on painted picture of Kevinandsuetravel Jack. He didn't answer right Kevin. Kevin is the star of this Jean Jacket and you know what? I it's they didn't wish you a happy birthday. Now. No, but you know sometimes did not tag them in any birthday posts. So maybe if I did any thought maybe. I, the last one I did was August eighteenth which I don't know if he saw or not, and then before that was all the way back in February where he did like it's and now this one of of the back of the Jean Jacket, which she which he saw I mean I'll take it. I know like maybe if he couldn't just double tap that would have been nice but you know what? It's he hopefully, he actually clicked the video and watched it to see the to see Jean Jacket right at least the I guess find shore. Whatever I mean see it fucking give a light. Kevin. But that's We're we're moving on from that. It's a great jacket. I'm so happy at arrived to you shortly after your birthday. I was afraid that it was gonNA take too long but it got there and yeah, you have to save it for a special moment whenever you know concerts come back whenever that will be. You got your vinyls blast those Jean Jacket on feel good about it. It's something that you can treasurer forever. Oh. Yeah Oh. Yeah it's really It's really quite beautiful and I know a lot of people were asking where where. Got It from and it was from FC Right? Yeah. Just whatever you want type and Tezzi and they have it believe type Jonas brother jacket. Somebody was painting murals Um. Can really find anything on there. So that was that was a great. Also a great part of the weekend. I'm so happy to hear that I have one thing before we get into the topic. Okay. Ranch Aska and Noah. We have been pronouncing Jacobs last name wrong Jacob Allergy the Guy We call Jacob. Shake. A lordy since when since I saw a video of him talking the other day. I don't really no one else calls them. But this is a last name. It's like very, very common to confuse the last. It makes sense we call them but in a video I said I saw him say Jacob Awardee and he doesn't have that as yeah I was GonNa say do you think that's because of the accent? It is spelled a Lordy. If you think about it e L. O. R. D. I could also aller- allergies. Say Your name in it might not sound like Shifa might sound like a different thing that doesn't mean that's how you say it. His last name. With an Australian accent. Whatever guys I thought I'd break breaking news. I thought I had breaking news. We'll see as time goes on, is his last name Awardee or. It would be kind of funny if it was. Awarded, religious sounds like Oh lordy. Lordy Lordy. I I guess gotTA. GotTa do I I feel like people when he's interviewed like people call him Jacob Allergy. Maybe he's just doesn't WANNA correct. Maybe this is a classic situation. Exactly think about it Riana has said publicly there's a video of her speaking saying my name is Ria and everyone just calls her Riano you know going to not call her. A little different situation. Jake. Appear but I'm just saying I saw video somewhat tag This is how you pronounce. Jacob. Plastic. Shocking shall. We call him. Jacob. Awardee probably on probably not probably not. All Right Francesca yes I'm began to the top. Oh by the way guys. Sorry. We have no interviews on this podcast either but we got more interviews coming up I. I know that we haven't had an interview on a podcast in a few episodes but yeah but we got a big one coming this week. Yeah. We do have a big one coming this week. Very big.

Unfortunate News for Demi Levato here today her and her fiance Max Eric have ended their engagement after old tweets and videos resurfaced of Max having an obsession with Selena. Gomez levato posted on her story and she said, why do people need to make these fake images? It seemed like she was Know sticking up for him and that they were going to be okay turns they're not okay. Sources are saying Danny, realized there was a lot of red flags. He sketchy there was things she didn't realize. Things that are now coming to light, and if we wanted just put what lane I feel like he's just a social climber and she finally realized that absolutely you know what I think that this is for the best I'm sure. I'm sure Demi is struggling right now. It's very hard to go through any kind of break up, but then engagement that has been pretty whirlwind. You know they only have been together for really the last six months or so engaged for two months. They were only dating for four months before he proposed. So I kind of just feel like she got so caught up in the love story and how amazing it was and then Wendy's red flags started to surface. It was like Oh maybe I need to look into this a little bit more and the public start to see the flags we saw the videos I think so many fans started to realize that. Maybe. This guy had some alterior motive. You Know He. was just trying to snatch whichever celebrity he could get. Ended here we are, and then, and then he posts on his instagram story that he found out about the break up. From a tabloid and then it almost seemed like he tried to to like. Christian guilt her it was so weird like he posted imagine finding out the status of your relationship through its tabloid, and then he said while you're in the middle of filming a bio-pic movie about a pastor in a Christian church whose intention on the film is to help people God bless like. I'm pretty sure your role in this movie has nothing to do with your break-up but okay. I hate that woe is me shit like how could this happen to me while I'm doing something good I it's a movie. So relax yourself you're not you know if. On the pastor himself exactly like you are actually playing a role in a movie. So love Yup out now and I think it's very clear. You know people had said before Damian him got engaged. There were I. saw people be rumors like, oh, he's a social climber is social climbing up. And they got engaged and we were just happy for. Because we love her and we're rooting for happiness rooting for the best. Oh, good for Demi. She got engaged kinda weird. It was quickly but you know go for it. Now it all came crumbling down I will say you know we don't know for sure that these tweets were actually from him but I believe it ninety nine percent because there were videos of him talking about it and if I only traits right. So if the videos a real the tweets are probably real if I'm Demi Lovato I am never ever getting over the fact that you tweeted. Selena Gomez is prettier than Demi Levato never gotten over it. We can no longer be married getting engaged anything like that. Now that I know that you tweeted. Something about me like that. You know what? I mean because. If he tweeted Selena Gomez is so pretty that's one thing he had to. Come back, I mean Levada to bring up Selena Gomez, and that would just always be in the back of my head. had. To knock me down to bring up different grow like that is an enemy of mine. Not just a random person at somebody I. Don't get along with yes and you know what? We are a Pro Demi Levato podcast we'd love her and. I. Think we were both skeptical at the beginning of this relationship, but she seems so happy. So we were there like we you know we wanted to support her and put out good vibes, and if she's happy, we're happy Kinda thing. But I'm glad came to this because clearly the rumors and the. Red Flags like we said, were there. It was clear as. Thankfully. She realized it and. She. ended. Things I'm assuming ca coming from her since he claims he found out from. The tabloids which is like. I'm sorry. No nobody feels bad for you. As. Just. Didn't find out from the top boys there is no way that. Didn't tell you that she wants to break up with you. Yeah. There's no way I don't believe that for a second I. Think Guy is just looking for attention and you know we'll give it to him right now. So congrats Max you're getting, you're getting the attention you you've been asking for it, but maybe not the best kind. Yeah, and you know what I just. I, worry about Dummies Mental Health I. Hope She's OK I hope she surrounds herself with her friends and her family and he gets through this and then when she feels like she's in a good place. Right some kick ass music because a break-up like this could produce some amazing songs from Demi. That is a great point. Plash. If, you've been following chicks in the office for a while.

This past weekend we saw on keeping up with the Kardashians this past Thursday northwest put on a performance at Kanye. West yeezy show where she wrapped a song. I would guess is called water those I never imagined what she would name it an original by Reginald Weiss. I. Have Not stopped laughing at this song Noah please play it. Is. S. Okay. Who? Yes. Yeah This drinks. Yeah. Cool. Cool Yeah. Yet. Okay. So The screech at the end. Unbelievable. But I think we also miss I don't know if this full video has been out because then when I looked at it like there's videos from March of clips from this. And I guess I just never watched the whole thing or didn't know that the whole thing was out because I I actually watched the whole thing after seeing it on the premiere of car crash and also because it was going buyer on Tiktok because they kept like people were taking talks of filming their screen you know it's north rapping, and then it cuts to Kim in the crowd who has like s has like a single tear going down her I Don Down her face while while north is literally screaming into a microphone vote. Is. It's so funny it is hilarious and one thing is for sure and that's northwest spending too much time with Travis Scott and Konya the way that she was rapping and screaming sounded like one of their songs like the long screech at the end I was like, okay she saw Uncle Travis doing this in the backyard one day and just picked up on it because. Unbelievable. The fact that Kim is crying it almost. It's apparent. Because because a parents love is really you just can't. Get that you can't get close to that because they were so proud of her and you could see it. You could see it on their faces. It's unconditional. There's something so pure about being a little kid and not getting embarrassed and not thinking about all these things surrounding what will people think of me do people like this on North West is just pure purely up there with her original piece that she wants performance. She does not care what anybody thinks about it. She just up there feeling good. Is the sound good. We won't. We won't go there because she's a little. Is Yes exactly, and you know what? I think better than blunt body but she's North West. Any rap that I came up with at at her song for that matter that I came up with that at that age was probably that bad if not worse. So I completely understand that's the kind of support you want from your parents. When you think you're a little kid and you're like damn I could be something. And it's just because your parents love you that much and. A Kim it's. Kim's tears. The whole thing it was hilarious and fantastic and north north is a superstar. She really is. It's just matter of time. We are seeing north do some. Crazy things I don't even know what but I just I feel like maybe acting or singing or dancing or something she's going to get involved somehow and you know it's going to be crazy. She may be a rapper why not I just like it's it. If she had an anya producing the beats, she can make it yep, and she could just become like. Children's wrap her like a rapper that six year olds listen to and she raps about like candy on Nickelodeon like person yes. Exactly. She's the Joe Joe Cyo Nickelodeon a rapper, right? Right Gioja see what does not rap. Judge see what does rap I'd I I don't mean a thing though. Ravanelli? No Right. Definitely not her main. Skill that she markets to the world but that could be where. The opening is Oh, and also I don't I don't know if if caught this weekend as far as you know in the in the kardashian sphere. Jordan Woods. Now dating Karl Anthony Towns Basketball Player. Arguably better than Tristan Thompson. He they both like went off on instagram.

What full direction he was going in, and then obviously we heard Buddy Valentine and everybody loved the alternative pop punk sound that he was going for and the whole album is is like that it's Great I was listening to it in the While I was in the shower and just like full-blown alley it makes me 'cause it takes me back in makes. Me Reminds me of when I was like eleven and like blasting pop punk in my room and just like being an angsty teen thinking that I had problems and. Not a problem, the world. But I love it it's just like a it's totally fits. Him totally fits this vibe and like you said, the songs are really good. He sounds great and people will keep joking they're like eminem literally made MGK switched genres. It's a joke but also serious at the same time because ever since that happen he just yet. But. It fits vibe. needs to rapid Dan, his life again no, he doesn't. He really doesn't. I'm sure he will because that's where you know it all started but now he's tackling it all he is so talented. If we're talking about his music, we're talking about acting he's done a few movies in the past few years that he's been really great Sauk really rooting for MG k. i. feel like he's really making the most out of his life. Now he's dating Megan Fox and they're. Climbing roofs together. They're just wild and out and I love it. Yeah. I'm really hopping on the MG K. Bandwagon just as just as a fan. Like you said, we're seeing pictures of him, Megan Fox like scaling walls the Roxie they're going full full blown rock and roll. There's also a part on the album I. Forget what Song It's before, but it's like facetime between him and Davidson and they're just like. fucked up there like I'm coming down from shrooms and then they're like joking about aliens and what what names they're alien characters would be and they're laughing and I feel like it might have been Megan's voice in the background to who was like, Whoa what's going on? It's just It's A very interesting. World that they that they live in and also. This one until they got mashing or like both got tattoos of each other Meghan Meghan. Yeah they so he's not he's he has not held back out how he feels about vox. Obviously, we know that and for facts. Question. Yes. Since you are jumping on board the MGK BANDWAGON YUP MG K. or Jacob Allergy. Oh. I mean I'm still going with Jacob Allergy. Really. Yeah I. Personally for me like I. Love. Machine Gun, Kelly and what he's got going on as a fan from a personal standpoint and the guys that I look for not for me. Not even just like purely hookup Jacob. G K. Shakeup he's really. Real, you know it's like, okay, I'm sure it's Honestly probably too much for thrill for me I did. I think that that could take turn I would not be prepared for. Enough jakup would be a little more tame and that's just a little bit more my my. Alley. Make more on not maybe empty K. is you know tender and loving and Jay Cutler just a fucking animal you never know and we'll never find out you never know but I just feel like Meghan and machine gun Kelly doing some weird shit they definitely are they definitely are and I I, appreciate it. Very much but the two of them they look really great together I I will say I wanted to hold this back, but I will I'll say it because it's been on my mind I saw Tiktok of them. Where they were walking into saddle ranch the you know well known L. A. Place. Everyone's go into all the young influencers. Yep, and the way MG K. was looking around. It was like look at me I'm mgk but you don't have to do that because you're mgk you know everyone's already looking. You know when you see videos of celebrities and their they got their heads down but you know they're walking and they look famous because they are famous he was looking around like. MG K. and I got Meghan Fox on my shoulder you know what can you blame them? I can't blame him. But at the time I was like it made me cringe just a little bit so I was like. All right. Let's cool down act like you've been to saddle ranch before. But still I totally get it. You just put out a banger album and you've got Meghan Fox your arms. So you know what that would give me confidence boost as well. Big Time. Zero. Known. The mature. Burden. Back. Vin Diesel I of our Pete that we have a new song from vin diesel, the star of the pacify. Say. That thank you. Thank. You may immediately think fast and furious which I think the general public would however when I think of in diesel I, think of the past we think of the pacifier I've seen that movie I owned it on DVD. I'll eat it so many times great. My absolutely loved the past fire because I I loved. I loved the not. He wasn't in the family, but he was the boy who you know she. Would, sneak out or maybe it was the boy in the family no no. Shit I've got I gotTA. Find. Find him talking about. Yes, he was the son he played Steph. Loved Him. Thought he was so cute and. Vin. Diesel. I guess this is a path that vin diesel has wanted to take for some time wasn't aware of that but he I guess is wanted to get into music and finally put out a song and he did it's called. Feel, like I, do it's And it's absolute banger. It's so good. It's better than half the music people putting out now like that are musicians measles sweeping the floor yes. Like normally when you get an actor or an athlete someone your. Address all by shack right? Like a different field like I'm thinking like Dan Damian Lillard, like people who are thinking that they're also. Musicians and they put out songs in your dislike. Oh no but for Vin diesel adjust works and he's smart because he teamed up with Kyko Right now like everything touches turns to gold. So it was so smart to do. It's it's impossible not to bop to the song, and I also love it because obviously vin diesel is. Not like an opera singer it's he's it's not a crazy vocal performance from him but. It you can tell it's vin diesel like it still sounds like vin diesel, which is kind of hilarious thinking of him. Just like in a recording studio I, don't know why just like the thought of him at a microphone singing is so funny it's because his muscles are so big. Picture Vin diesel with the. Yeah, these big ASS muscles trying to fit in the booth. That's why it's hard to picture. Because When's the last time? You saw somebody with huge muscles in a recording Yeah yeah not like his now. And he looked so happy in the cover art like have his face with this weird filter on it, but he's just smiling he looked so happy. And boys the crowd go wild. Kaiga, whatever you know when we're allowed to have festivals again and Kogyo's performing and he's like. Ladies and Gentlemen Are you ready for? He's And everybody just loses their shit. He comes out any forms of song. It's Coachella everybody's fucked Ali rooms whatever and then vin diesel walks out with those chack muscles. Forms like a song that is. So. I guess also because it's her so it feels very light hearted. Happy like you know it's very bouncy, which is another aspect. That's funny. VIN diesel dancing. I feel like vin diesel may be had a spiritual awakening in quarantine where he was like I need to become a DJ. It's it's VIN diesel is the perfect is a name I know. If you haven't been named diesel. Diesel that just sounds hard. That sounds like you're DJ. Really, incredible stuff from VIN diesel I will say. Cheese yeah. He was from Long Island. Yes. There are so many. There are so many ways that this could went when we when I saw that he was going to be putting out a song and I'm so glad it was what Kyko because It's. It's great. It's really great. The. Cake.

My Sunday was going onto instagram and seeing Sophie Turner Post geeze absolutely beautiful pregnancy shots like. It's just came out of nowhere and it's so crazy because. This personal experience, but I had just seen. Joe had posted instagram. Said patiently waiting in, was him in a up in the window from one of the shows and and I was just thinking like. Are they ever GonNa post about the baby or talk about the baby or is this just like not going to be? Publicly, discussed Bam Sophie drops these pictures. Obviously, we have not seen pictures of baby, Willa herself but. Clear evidence of the pregnancy in the photos I liked this move and I don't with the same time I wish that we had gotten these pictures while she was pregnant now I'm so happy sharing them with us. Now. Thank you Sophie for Blessing. US. And our timeline with these right. It makes it feel like the baby isn't here right now. Where we tricked when we found out, the baby was born because now you're posting pictures. Zillow, it's a little bit delayed. Maybe she's missing the days that she was pregnant instead of having a full grown child while I'm sure she still enjoys having full child with Joe Jonas of course their. Hours but yes, she looks amazing. I'm always every time I. See somebody pragmatic instagram. I'm just like Oh my God they looked so beautiful glowing and you so beautiful. It just. It just gives us a picture of the baby. That's That's I know it sounds like I'm invading their privacy but I would i WanNa know what you looks like although it's you know we gotta respect them they don't WanNa. Show US fine. At least we got a name DJ and Zane them giving us a name yet and right I'm waiting on the edge of my seat here even just a little hand holding fingernail pick like G G IN G G in vain did Jiji's been posting some of the gifts she's been receiving from all of her very famous friends look like Taylor? Swift. Made a baby blanket and just A lot of amazing. A lot of amazing things and you're so right she just. Looks like. It's impossible to say she's obviously glowing. She's abused beautiful pregnant person a love the picture of her in the pool with the pump and and just. I I hope she had an amazing. Pregnancy experience you know, I, feel like she and Joe were able to just. Hibernate and plan for this baby together and these pictures are so so cute. I'm just. Little Will Jonas just WanNa beat her so bad. You know what I think about every time somebody has a baby how happy they must be that they can drink again. Or anything. You know it's like at all. Now I glass of wine when your Doctor Clears, it made a best glass of wine that you ever drank in your entire life. Yeah. I agree I I off that you take a joint your babies foreign. Must be the highest still ever be. And you know what I'm sure. Sophie. Got Glass of wine after just. Really enjoying that. Can You? I don't really know the exact time at the. You know it also depends on breastfeed rest feeding and pumping and pump the pump and dump it all very a whole myriad of of of other things but having. A couple of SIPS, probably. Probably, whenever you want I could. I'm envisioning myself whenever I have a kid. The baby pops out of me and I'm immediately handed a glasses. And we do a toast chugging. Should do that. I don't know how well they'll go over with the I'm not sure I'm not sure if my if doc I learned that you have no idea I have no idea what the circumstances what you are loudly wildly out. Yeah. Truly wildly four wildly uninformed about. Being. A pregnant person even though I do hope one day that I will have live through that. So but as of right now, truly don't know a damn thing. We don't need to be informed right now. No No, we'll. We'll learn when we need to but there's I think we can just maybe. Talk about. All, the other babies now. We're talking about babies. Yeah. Let's get into all the other babies that are popping out all over the place. Okay. You thought you'd get breakups, worders, get and babies babies not literally nonstop babies I think I opened it like every day on instagram. There was a new celebrity that was either pregnant or had a baby or. was engaged just like good news I feel like obviously besides Demi. Max We knew that happened but we already talked about that will smell like Lily Collins is engaged to her director boyfriend she posted on her scrammed they're beautiful pictures Charlie McDowell is his name congratulations to her love. Collins Mandy Moore. She's pregnant expecting her first child, which is amazing. Billy Lord. Just straight up had a baby we we knew that she was. Engaged I believe. But now like also just. Giving giving birth right now and early at this very moment. Yes yes. Her and her fiance Austin welcomed a son Kingston Fisher Lord del. So. Congratulations to them more babies. It's just so. Amazing so many babies wait Lemme was there. I think there was. Rosbach. Harrington more babies they're expecting a baby I'm telling you everybody in lockdown. I feel like if couples were discussing when they wanted to start a family, when's the right time when we do it lockdown happened in everyone was like. This seems to be the perfect time. Right the one that shocked me, the most was actually kit, Harrington, grossly because I honestly thought those who weren't even going to make a couple. Yeah. Yeah, and now they're having a baby so good for them. CONGRATS. Glad you guys figured it out I. Know I. Hope that lockdown was great for some. So so many of these celebrity couples that having gotten to spend. A lot of time together just from their schedules and working they're so busy and they were able to spend this time together and hopefully it brought them closer together. The I think this is the last one. There could be more missing but. Rooney Mara and walking Phoenix also. Gave Birth I. Think this past month it seemed like it was like the The Director of I'm never, GonNa say this guy's name right who victor Kazakov Ski. Is Adrift is good enough for me. he said during Q. Qna that Joaquin was not was not present there because they had just welcomed a son last month and apparently allegedly his name is river, which is just I mean if that doesn't pull at the heartstrings, I don't know what does it definitely does that is is upsetting while also really nice at the same time you know. Yeah, EXAC ON RIVER PHOENIX. Can. You Picture Joaquin Phoenix fathering a child because I cannot. But I'm sure he'll be a great one. Yes. I am with few and that's so so much based on the joker. But he I don't know I I feel like with him. Those instincts just Kinda kick in I don't know he's. He seems like. The kind of guy who just Goes all in. On what he's doing like commits one hundred percent whether it's a roll or an acting role or something like that. So I hope now that he has he's with Rooney and he has talked about how she has been such a positive. Addition into his life that as father he's just going to be like I'm going to be the best fucking. Dial. Really. That's a really good point. He will put in as much effort. As he did to the joker into his child. Exactly, and then I you know I hope hopefully that was all of them but there it was crazy. So So, much baby news and. I'm sure we're going to see even more calm lake. Let's see like the deepest April Ish April really didn't exist as a month now so May June July August September October November December January. So come January. We can be a lot of babies. Popping out loud a babies that. And that April April time and don't forget people get around Christmas France parents. So next September September babies exactly that up today's episode of chicks in the office. We hope you guys enjoyed it. We love you guys so much. Thank you for listening. We hope not a fantastic league Max. You check out sort up arsenal sports, dot com look at all the chicks in the office March get yourself a sweatshirt something. Nice.

All throw holds up on new live episode of Collider Movie. Hey everyone welcome. I can't see myself on the screen so I don't know if I'm on camera so let's have a conversation. It's live out of moving talk other Wednesday Radi morning here in Los Angeles California and don't adjust you said. Perry Perry number off did not gain weight. It's me John Rocca in place of her she's out doing great stuff. Can't talk about it yet. Probably talk about it so no. That's for sure and joining me today on a lovely Wednesday morning. I couldn't be more excited. This is going to. It'd be one of those like Rodeo ride. You have to incredible. Guests are joining me to talk about Bond twenty-five plenty apes and some movies when the National Board Review Right there the beautiful lovely lady great. How are you miss movie phone pop my collar lookout and the guy over there just finished fixing my water heater eater and dragons hall an eighteen wheeler over there mark? Virginia lucky got going to have to order another part to get that fixed par from it. I'm going to get until until after the holidays so I'm not sure what you WANNA do. I still get paid by the hour every every time I come close to accept the Mark Ellis has gone full La. He pulls out the Virginia stuff and I go back home with him. I feel very comfortable. I now that I see myself on camera. I kind of look like Billy Madison and his first day back back in high school. It's time to kick some ASS Really Never Been Jean Jacket Guy. Nonsense I was like in second grade. Brian good choice. Yeah I rolled the sleeves up and everything. We're going okay. I don't care if the guy that we're talking about. Where's the TUXEDO and drinks? MARTINIS exotic location. I am happy and Jean Jacket with a cold coors light in most parts of Florida. There you go for the whole show if you you basically have trouble overhearing mark over the sound of the Banjo music playing. Don't have to adjust your set group. That's a very good point Whenever I think of our gal is other good Banjo? Music for so many reasons Brain best team ever happened on movies. I don't like shoes. My children are so children so I awesome excited for this episode for sure. Maybe more than I've been excited for an episode this week just a little bit though a letter grade than me but I'll take I'll take the credit of course of course but that's been this. You mentioned the the Nice vans acceded. That's James Bond. The new trailer. No time to die dropped this morning from cary Fukunaga he is directing taking over from Danny Boyle. There were creative differences. Whatever you WanNa make that you can? This was fantastic in my personal opinion. Lot of action lot of characters. Come back asu coming back. We get Jeffrey Wright. Coming back onto the The Franchise Crystal wants coming back as blow fell. Ray Finds Ben Wish Harris. And but we got the new villain. That's Rummy rummy. Malik is playing. We'll Leshan Lynch look in Bad Asom and the army's looking sexy af and then you got yourself a little Aston Martin action with the machine gun coming out of the headlights little golfing reference. So much about this was all over. The place. Piano Specter wasn't always a good way. I know Spector. Wasn't the most well received achieved amongst the film fans and bond fans. But this feels like it's going back to what they enjoyed about casino royale in Sky Fall. Great what was your. What were your thoughts about the trailer? I was actually I noticed. Noticed how many times they mentioned secrets. Yeah and this one and I was like James Bond and gossipy actually. It's more than the twentieth anniversary. It's when it's early still And so I wondered I was like is Laya seduce secret that she he's been hanging onto a phantom of the opera mask for so long. And what does that mean because I it was Kinda stylish. It means that she stole Vicki. Vales masks the joker givers aver revisit. This every thirty years. And that's a pretty major secret. I see this trailer and I'm now I'm pumped for further for the return of Jimmy Bond. Yeah here's the thing that I was not a spectre fan. I love spectrum. What did I what are we just do not much no? We're we're coming for sky fall which is really cool cool. But I think they're. They're going back to where sky fall. Feel where I felt like there were a lot of secrets revealed about. What's going on with mine? I think we're going back to that formula. The question I have is is how much of the because Daniel Craig's last turn is James Bond. So how much of that are we wrapping things up. Are we setting up more adventures. Is this going to be. It is at the end of this movie. Does he just retired to a golf. Course in Jacksonville vaguely possible way in Jacksonville for anywhere anywhere Jag it to play golf drink. Don't hey disguise for James Bond has been. I just WANNA be clear that if Daniel Craig showed up to to my house in a Jean Jacket and I would let him fix whatever he wanted him. That's a fair point and I'm not even shape say that I think this one looks really cool. It's Real I. It took me actually two watches to really take it all in because I think the second half of that trailer is so packed. Act with stuff but I loved that scene. She's like I'll shoot you in the knee. Good one and I was like I mean they gave her some good lines. As you can tell those two are going to have some like Fahd Banter back and forth and why not. I mean phoebe Waller Bridge coming onto this property. She made very clear. I still think bond is relevant and yes he can still be promiscuous with women. It's not a big deal but we just need to make sure the female characters are treated fairly. And so you see this coming. You've had of course moneypenny. Has Given is gonNA. She's gotten tares the fantastic actress you've had to do kind of being from spectra kind of being the a love interest for two and of course the age difference who make a big deal about that as well but now some shallow Lynch coming on stinks. That is phoebe Waller Bridge. I believe addition to the script as well that kind of back and forth that's equal and no one giving a quarter or inch to each other still being bad ass in their separate ways and I wonder if this is the hand off to Sean Lynch or not. It's interesting that would be so cool. New Double O seven. who better to step in there? The trailer is that we get to visit Christoph Waltz in jail so it's Kinda he's like the Hannibal Lecter you know where it's like. Oh we're we're taking cues from your oral. Wait wait horrible bosses like hey we need some help with this new one. And then you have Romney Malik which is just like the perfect looking bond villain because Oh the Great Rowan Atkinson he's a villain with physical defect. Yeah we we've seen this before though. Haven't we with Robert Carlyle. Remember his issues in the the world is not enough. We've seen this before with other things. Even League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Richard Roxburgh character had to wear the mask. And all I get I. It concerns me a little bit Damascus. It makes me thank you. Hit the nail too hard on the head like all wearing masks. So that whole thing. Why don't you go get a screwdriver? The pollen masks to South Carolina fireworks which comes uh-huh Brexit Greg's Departure from the bond franchise. He said you know this. Is it for him. So that's a big sendoff for him. And contrary to the way he talked about Specter her recent. It was like crawling through broken glass. He said this has been one of the most wonderful experiences and best friends I've ever had. This was from a video of farewell speech. He gave onset. You've all done. The most amazing job could not be more proud to work with every single one of you on this production so you get the feeling it just from the trailer itself and then this a attached to it you get feel. They feel like they corrected. What was the problem around Specter? which was they didn't think before they spoke and stuff and then everybody betty was like what do you like to wasn't a good thing? You know the best thing I think to come out of Spector actor for me because I also did. I wasn't crazy about it was that I remember asking Christoph Waltz if like what kind of umbrella organization spectre was and what kind of businesses fell under that umbrella and I was like sorta taking a chance because Christoph Waltz. He's not a scary Dude Morrison. He just like he's sort Timothy and he he thought about and he goes Oh yeah the ice cream parlor in. What Robert Wagner did for Dr Evil Look you have to have some sort of wood jr it corporations to hide the the evil entity so maybe maybe have a coffee bean there maybe maybe specter runs a bunch of chillies? TWOS that I've been to in airport. Yeah checks out. There's some and what Chile two Chilis shotty go into an airport. It's the Chili's logo t o whereas in Teen Wolf too so it's Chili's too because it's like a slightly smaller. That's an airport. And the reason why grant. I think that this might factor in a James Bond is because the waiters and waitresses wear masks. This is the kind of comedy you get from Stepfather dog step step by step father. Whatever the hell it is does this is all available Alan? Utah doesn't matter what to now. I Want my servant to be wearing a man from if I'm at Arby's drive from can you put this on and then Hammy my curly fries. I have your awesome blossom. Ride all very inside your mouth fans nobody hello all Kristie there. It was jar Butler for some reason. I in that movie Listen I'm more. I'm a big Fan of the Robert England all okay. But that's a Cheney version. It's not the music Michael Crawford is. The Phantom of the damage from my concern here is are they going to get this right to send him off correctly and hand the baton over Luzon Leshan Lynch like what do they call that but not a macguffin but right like you don't have a red herring red herring. Yeah do they do. We think. That's a red herring because does is that a smart move. Because she's she's seem so bad ass and she's been doing for two years now. been a double. Oh so much so that the world is moved on with the and I thought it was brave from the trailer. I I never thought Bond James Bond would be used in an unequal way. Whether Security Guy doesn't know the hell you walk your own place and you got bond. And he's like Yeah James James Bond. Oh all right James Bond going in and it's cool to I. I love that shot. 'cause I I noticed it where he just as is he like looks up. Yeah Yeah and then you're like don't say it say no. Don't say wait wait. And then his James Bond and it's just it's TSA basically. Let's go back to visit your your old college Frat to go to a party and we don't know who you are dude right. This is how James Bond should look. Dame's James Bond is always been really good at at cracking bad jokes okay. He's really good. He's probably fathered hundreds of kids around the world now so for him to. If any of those women lived yes they they usually end up dead. All those Casino Royale yet didn't work out. What gene in Scott in the specter dies died Saint James Bond is like the opposite. Good Luck Chuck. E. Sleep with bond is probably the last person you sleep with. What did you have to bring up Dane? Cook without the jacket on you this. I haven't made one joke since I've been on this. This is yeah for sure. I feel like you think I'm trying to be funny. Oh fair point is serious no rate comedic presence on on programs. Oh it's crystal clear you're not trying to find you greg. Let me ask you something greatest. It's not even nine nine fifteen. Yeah you're right. I'm here for three hours. Guy Until showtime around seven thirty eight. PM That's true so you work in your bits out here. This is where I br. act like that one What do you think men and women? They are different. Women be shopping I I wanna see them what it means to with the mask. That's what helps me give it a little more leeway alias Fukunaga. It's such a great job in that first season detective that I wanNa see if this is something deeper something Alex character says you. You'll die physically but my town Thomas kills will go on. What does that mean loaning situation we get? What are we getting into here? That will be all but spector already was yeah. That's a great great point because that makes zero sense yes and I was like it. Just he just say crazy stuff is he like is he. Did it later in the movie. Does he say like inflation. Inflation rates will definitely go down as time goes on right just like spouting a whole bunch of crazy stuff. But from what I know Rami Mouse. Character is a flatter so I think it would be the best movie ever where it's like. I'm going to flatten. The I think that that him referencing referencing that he can live on in some capacity that he may survive in some fashion. This this film hearkens back to your point where we could the nominating a successor to James Bond by the end of this movie. Don't think it's necessary to do that. But I think it'd be interesting and it's something that we really we've seen them try fry before and James Bond style movies but I don't think we've ever pulled it off successfully. Yeah so there's very little risk here. Because you can't always reboot. Yeah you know what's interesting. The thing is that there seems to be a distinction between the approach to James Bond movies versus something like Marvel. This might be an unfair comparison but clearly marvel has a roadmap that extends very far into the future right so they're able to give audiences some kind of really exciting thing in their movies and I feel like James Bond is always super super reactionary. Like we don't get anything really cool in the movies that's hearkening to the next one. It almost seems like they released a movie. They wait to see what everybody says has. And then the the Broccoli's like make some decision. You know what I mean like they. They don't really put a lot of cool things that are going to pay off and other movies and I. I don't know that we'll get that this topic I think that's what was fascinating about the specter thing because it was supposed to be from scenerio all the way to specter. It was supposed to have been a long game but it seemed to stumble at the end or throughout throughout the film Specter at trying to connect the dots and also with that. What they were doing they were looking for spector? I I saw factor in the theater. I remember so little about it. I'm not where there's a helicopter in Mexico City right so it's a big table table. And then there is there is there is a cold weather with Cassandra involved in all right yeah line but was the movie and then Chris off all showed up and I believe he played a Nazi Eh. Yeah don't Nazi German or Austrian. I leave. He wanted a glass of milk. Oh Yeah Okay Fair enough. He had a white cat. Do you remember the white cat that check. I think all that sounds perfectly correct. Thank you don't worry about wikipedia kids. I'm here ellison. He also has a market PD. I like that he also oh has a facial defect as well carried over from a spectrum because of the helicopter crash onto the bridge which design that was before crapped on the a crash on the bridge but he had a messed up. I from a bond trying to break him up. What is having a gold and try to get into fort? Knox crapping on bridges I'm sorry crash on the bridge. My throat's dead to- dammit Anyway we'll see what happens April eight twenty twenties when this thing is coming up. I'm personally looking forward to this. Has Been my favorite bond Daniel Craig. I don't care what anybody says. I've enjoyed his kind of brutal approach to bond and I liked that he is just a battering ram and him bring. Who Doesn't love when they take you out of retirement to come back one more time like John Wake up thinking back that kind of stuff people love it when he rose comeback doc or they have this legend about them coming back to take care of business again he does have a really good balance of energy because I know watching him like as a fan like I just love gazing going into those blue eyes and he works on that level but he's also really bad ass so he's a he's a really good mix? I think you know it's like yeah. He walks out of the ocean. You love watching that. Ah but also he's killed some guys. Yeah I've never walked out of the ocean and had water like drip off my abs like what happens with James Bond. There's just like there's a there's a there's a thing there and it's and it's sunburn. Yeah Joe Bob Yeah if you just imagine it. TMZ photograph anybody. Getting out of the Hugh Jackman put some weight on. Wait until you see what I look like getting somebody to shoot shoot that manatee. Just put it out thankful. Tom Cruise is not playing. James Bond Gets Tom Cruise James he would be dead. You Know Tom Crews were tried that motorcycles Tennessee. Oh yeah no it. He would've jumped off the bridge without anything attached to his sure. Stop doing your own stunts. I'm still waiver hanging off the space shuttle mission possible films. That's gotTa have while the diesel drives the car out of the shuttle in space. You know that's GonNa Happen Anyway. All right let's move on to our next story and that's Disney and Fox working together on a new planet of the apes movie. I'm shocked to hear about this because I was. I didn't know that that they were going to bring it back under the banner and I thought they'd wait a little bit longer so this is kinda surprising that there are already putting this in motion West. Ball's GonNa take this this over of most recently mouse guard fame when that God shuttered by Disney as well when Fox and been developing that thing but he also was a instrumental in running that maze runner series. Those three films that don't know if it's positive because they financially made less as they went along so this is an interesting turn to hand this over to West Ball. Aw Maybe Disney and Fox were impressed by what he'd done with my scarred maybe they felt bad about taking Moscow it away from him at hand. This project is kind of a way to kind of make it up to him but also also use his skills in a positive way else. What do you think about okay? So I heard there's a new AIDS movie coming out and I got very excited because eight on horses was like the the thing and Avon tanks eventually had apes I think flying I wanna see it in the spirit a baby yoga. I'd like to see like baby apes and baby horses. I want everything to be babysitting little tiny babies. They can still talk and do all the things you hear that lady's he wants everything the baby's clock tick tick tick tick especially dress like this. If you're willing I'm able with planner the apes. I was shocked as well because I thought it was such a great trilogy anytime he started to get into. Bay like the best trilogies of all time. How have your people throw whatever their star wars is or whatever else and then somebody's like? Hey how about planet of the apes or how to train your dragon. These are like early zero. Yeah that's a trilogy and it's a damn good one too. I loved every planet of the apes movie in this new iteration and so now I I just. I'd like to know where we're going with it. But I'm intrigued. Yeah the question. Is this a reboot UCLA. Grace's reboot is remake reimagining or. Is this picking up. Where the last three left off because we Caesar obviously spoiler alert? What happened to Caesar ended the third film? Do we go into a new era of the planet. I hope that we're going into a new era but the same storyline and the thing. That makes me nervous about this. Is the Matt Reeves. Apes like really meant a lot to me and the last one I was sobbing. I just loved it. And it's all in the writing of these new ones and and But if you're missing Andy Circus and it's like if they kill that orangutans. I'm out set this place on fire. You can't kill Marino now and so but I. I think that there's more of the story to be told but as usual as with everything you need to do it in a really clever way with the great writer that understands ends way. Those movies are great and apes on horses totally awesome but it fit within the world of this really kind of complex narrative that was really relatable all and amazing. And it's most of the time they rush these things through and they're like just do it. Just put a horse. Yeah usually they start with Avon horses all right now. We need a story with this. You have the story knowing by the way this story. We do the horse thing so here. I think you do continue new. It and I would love to see what the future looks like where apes are totally there. Maybe there's no more humanities. Maybe it's just like I'd like to get past. Whatever the the next post apocalyptic wasteland series and I WANNA get way far in the future with this and just see what we because we can't have anti circus play another? This is a fantastic idea. Totally nailed it. Because then what we're doing is basically going back to the very first movie advanced civilization and like what if Mark Wahlberg just wakes up. Yeah just kidding no kidding. No Abraham Lincoln. Oh what and see that version of the United States. Let's see what he was up to. Well the only I'm sorry anyway. My my thing is i. Don't WanNa see that. Hey how's your mother. I don't want to see any of them are over. But if you look at the you know the original great the two thousand one terrible this fantastic will this will work or not. You know I wonder about the you. See the mouse guard footage. That was has released nine minutes and stuff no and to be perfectly honest. It just sounds like you put two random nounce together. I don't know what you're talking. I'm a huge mouthguard. Fan of the movie was great. Great Nathan Lane is one of my favorite athlete. Maybe my favorite movie is that not not. What's that one for obscure? Movie called Mousetrap App Hon. Yeah townie shape. I'M GONNA call you now under the nine minutes of footage that They dropped West Ball. DROPPED ABOUT LAS card. It's incredible I is basically. It's based on a children's book it is like in essence. It all deals with these mouse. Mice that live in this world and the they deal with good and the bad and there's attack all this kind of stuff that goes on them trying to create a life afterwards and can they hold off the evil mice from the good mice. Now all kind of like like that do. The math are hats. No but I love your yes and spirit. That'd be good. I tried to be positive with. Hey we we had no idea what mouthguard was we get away with it for a long time fair. I can't understand you in that accent more Guinea pig cage. When you explain that concept yes it makes makes perfect sense that Disney Fox would be like? Hey The guy did a movie about like civil unrest with hairy things so so. Why don't we put him in charge of the other movie we could theoretically do more hair less traps? And let's add horses and again or says I am GonNa Give You the Quick Synopsis. Mouse car is set in a world of sentient mice who live in a medieval era paralleling. The same agent human history. Same wife expectancy is normal. They don't because finish bother setting priscilla's if you're only gonNA live like eight months then just just enjoy that you're months like there ain't months might be your twenty years. Oh like a dog doesn't know it's living only seven years. Every year of a human year were or is that why he is so adorable and each food and licks other dogs spots Farrell. Yeah moly definitely knows that. She's eighty four and enjoys every ounce of her senior benefits. Yeah I was wondering if a dog every time they wake up during the day. It hasn't been a day in their mind like when they wake up had gone to bed. Woken up and that aware Pinto an animal house. Can I buy some pot from you with that. Get up either. So what's the rest in their world. There are no humans story walls brotherhood Lord of mice known as the Mouse Guard who have sworn oath to serve their fellow civilian mice in times of need including making safe passage for them who oldness and protected them from predators. What's copycats okay? So there's stuff there right so just like make the mice bigger and like give them ears. They're apes now so if they did a whole. CG There's like cg the mice and everything that will of apes Basiji or will be like motion capture after they have whatever they use for mo cap they have they have to stay with the same tag up and since the last movie which was like a couple of years ago. The technology is so improved ripe. That they've gotta stay with that. They have to top themselves visually. Because those movies were mind blowing. Actually Still Kinda hold up. Donna yes especially the last one. Yeah Holy Crap that you know. It's great technology where it holds up on your TV because you go see things in a theater and has blown away by everything. And then you go Peter Jackson's King Kong on your team and you guys use acute video game but like with with those. It feels like there's actually like just like apes hanging down like riding horses tanks so my question with this because it's the twentieth century Fox property. The fear is that is this Disney just looking at everything. The Twentieth Century Fox brought to them in this merger. And Okay we gotta wait a few years on Predator we got away. We don't know we can do alien if there's a script ready apes we can make some money with planet landed the ape so is they. Are they doing this for the sake of money but I would hope that they have a cool story in place that they want to well. That's what the that's what was going to be my next question. Are you surprised is it. This is the first. Ip From Fox Disney is taking over and going and running with probably the least tied up so it was a convenient choice. Yeah so it's like yeah we can actually move the needle on this faster so we should give this priority. It seems to make sense. I just it. It'd be so sad if they ruined it because they really get into live action stuff correct in Lion King not fully correct but close it off. Do you think that inspires them to do the apes thing as well. Do you think they'll go that route. I'm just stuck now now. Thinking about the lion king which depressed me because I thought the animals were so expressionless could be an issue. I fundamentally disagree with you actually. I don't I don't think they nailed it. With Lion King Jungle Book was far more successful. CG outing being very unfair okay. I don't tell my animals to smile. I told my animals to feel what they wanNA feel at that time and everybody in the Lion King taught their mission very seriously becoming a king here grand. Aku just subverted our expectations in his jacket he still progressive all of a sudden. All the best part of the new lion king was the extended undeterred. Seen what who pitches that and hey guys in the middle of this movie there. We're going to watch the biology of eating eating something and getting some some. Why infer down there? And then pope in it out. And then that's going to be the circle of life. Hey man it it moves us. All it does is some faster than other some more times once a day. This is what we'll see what happens as it goes forward. I'm I'm curious to see because look any circus can't be the only dude who could do mo- capra God's sakes there's got to be other people out there who want a shot at this it'd be Campbell told me uh-huh okay well. Toby doesn't have the best record in terms of success for films that he's in so I would be hesitant toby in this film but I mean it's not his other good act. Nobody's opening this movie other than hey kids. There's apes come see the mood. Yeah I it. It doesn't matter. Who's it'd be nice to have some vocal talents? Because he wasn't he wasn't awesome. APES MOVIES WASN'T I'm talking about someone new though someone new coming in who wants to break into the mall captain viney circus going. If I could just get opportunity there there there definitely is 'cause I mean you know I I didn't really peg Zoe Saldana somebody that could happen. Just been there she is and we're like Oh cool and then later as a as a reward we turn green like now you can be all colors or if you have earned that right madame. Would I'm harvey was our new. Caesar would that work. No that's really fascinating and I'm mulling it over. Because initially my response is that he is so he's not as physical person person. But then I think back to Bronson and I'm like no he really is. I think anybody has the ability to train to do that kind of thing but certainly someone like indie circus. This was kind of born to pioneer this whole industries. Really Amazing and certainly that kind of talent it might be challenging to find. But there's definitely someone out there either of veto. What have we done? What have you done Mo cap you bet I have ever again? I don't get that Kinky. I'm just I'm happy just being there. I told you it's GonNa be a Rodeo. It's going to be a Rodeo show up and there's a part I mean like I clearly know how to bring the party this actually this Jean jacket a smoke cap the sky. I'm not even here. Frank is deep. Faking me into this episode of movie. Of course I'm I think we got baby. Your question yes I did do mo cap it wet and it was amazing. I want to get a chance to do that someday. I'd I was trying to do it professionally when I was doing voiceovers but but it's tough to bust in two things really. It's just Andy. It's just andy sitting on a throne like no and Doug Jones and write songs nicer though knobs Joe and his great Doug slicer than everyone doug is the sweetest kiss my hand red carpet and I was like Oh my God. The guy like he gives the best hugs in Hollywood. And he folds you into those big citre arms and he just embraces you. And it's then you know you've made that if you wonder under y you feel under the weather every winter. Maybe you're just letting strange dudes kiss your hand. A little little sky takeout with your hand. He's trying to bite Shit Jon Allen Fishing coasters I honey you stop having sexual that fishing the top probably could tell us entire episode. Go to movies ever been submitted to the EMMYS. That's for damn sure to the one viewer we had left. I don't want no fish viewers watching this episode. uh-huh speaking of Fishman their fishermen in Marvel l'idee say let's see what else to say about heroes the secular that now I need Allah one of the hosts of collider heroes.

He Ain't any address like me as soon as he looked at himself in some some of the TV you own With the beard for Michael Pirate demographer as. Here's Mike Pereira. Yeah has billy. I wish heard of that in the cruisers Sir stats the Big van. halen shot shots. Five seconds top favorite musical biopic working. Say WHOA WHOA. WHOA five seconds count? How do you want incredible? Walk hard both of them. The cancer walk the line. I'll give it a little more all right when you're talking straight music documentaries I would say the history of the Eagles is great off also of it. Might Mike Get loud. Which is Jimmy? Page Jack White in the edge from U to all just sitting around Jamming Guitars Outta conversation. Up Docs Bogdonovich did that. Tom Petty Music. uh-huh yes and I always. It's one of his song lyrics. I it's so great so great now. It's not your question at all but you know what like Odell L. Wreck me baby boy. I will speak in a films that could win. Best Picture I don't know we weren't at all. But the board review named the Irishman there a best picture this on the heels of the Gotham awards naming marriage story. Their best picture so Netflix is starting to build a little no better steam here. Towards as we enter the awards season moving towards the Oscars the Golden Globes. What have you? This is very interesting. The Irish talk to me gray their net flicks. Alex is going so hard at these award or walking hard. Sure are and it's it's interesting because when you're a member of like the what is this. We're Oh God who's that old guy. I'm looking at sorry Joe in this movie. Red Carpet de age technology the movie then walk the red carpet and his young again but the infrared sensors. They're not quite there so during the awards awards season you know you get a whole bunch of screeners you get a whole bunch of books get a whole bunch of things in their leg. Vote for me every day. There's something from Netflix. Got So many movies season this conversation and in a year where Scorsese has a movie and Tarantino has a movie everybody else goes dare go just waited another a year to win anything. Because I think they're going to take a lot. It's like an embedding when she gets nominated opposite. Hilary Swank Dan. And what's interesting about this. Is that if you have netflix. Making this big of a push this netflix leaning into the fact that hey we may not be able to out blockbuster. Other streaming services like Disney laws. But we if we make a quality cinema and we start to get into those award show conversations. That's GONNA keep our subscriber base high. I could also throw my name as Dolemite into any consideration consideration for a best picture. Best lead actor. Best Ensemble cast kind of thing. So the Irishman. I don't think it's the best movie that I saw this year. But it is damn good and I think it is a contender for the top awards and if the national review is kind of. That really early predictor. As far as which way the tea leaves may be pointing the Irishman's a good bet. You know statistically I think that that stuff is GonNa going by the wayside as far as predictors. Whoever wins the directors guild award? You know statistically he used to predict what was going to win best picture but the racist soul all over the place at this point. It's impossible to predict the nominees. And so it's like. Yeah the Irishman is. It's great yeah. Marriage story is great. What else is Great Book Smart? I don't know well so what else happens back. There's so many more backlashes back and forth now because as soon as you have one award award show or one body gives all the praise to one movie. That's when everybody else is like that movie head and then so then that's what then it bounces out of course correction the next award show so just kind of like this pinball game they really have to keep track of I think you could. You could have done in the past as a predictor. It could have served as a predictor for what's to come. Voting Body stayed stayed the same across all the fact voting bodies are now changing and are averaging every year as they become more diverse younger. Allow more voices to be in in the room it becomes a less. You're becoming less able to predict what is going to win based on something that one three weeks ago so much more interesting yes agreed and it's a exactly the way that it should because a lot of good movies that came out and in a year when we're not just talking about joker you know what I mean like. There's that that means is a good year because of that Kinda was mind blowing but then you're like well right but then there's once upon a time in Hollywood. The two popes for anybody at all men shows because something like the farewell which that and once upon a time in Hollywood like those. Those weren't released during when you would consider the Oscar Bait coming out. I mean even something like parasites so there's a lot of movies that you can take from pretty much all year round. I just think people invest more in it now. Then maybe happened fifteen twenty years ago and like you said the voting bodies have changed for the better. It's a lot more progressive with who we include into these voting bodies. So it's really open season and so I think that that part of that lends itself off just voter looking at something like Netflix. And not having some sort of like gee we gotta give them one. It's like you're going to vote for a lot of athletes movies and I guess we gotTa what the theaters have one or two movies in conversation. Yeah well the National Board of you is made up of filmmakers critics academics and more organization facilitates screenings. Discussions has grants to emerging filmmakers and helps Cannibal films into a more publicized consciousness. So that's a positive overall for what this August body does for lack of a better adjective. What's interesting too and I want to talk to you? All Uncut Gems got some love best screenplay and best actor. That's so good actor for the love of God Adam Sandler God help us all. I haven't seen this yet. Have Utah guns screening pile to finish up this weekend. What an unbelievable mull movie an incredible performance I don't know about giving it a screenplay award I fit for me it's like an adapted screenplay would be Joe Joe Rabbit that I'd be more interested in seeing get some love but sandler has he's so the just the energy coming off the sky like for somehow he was born to play this character actor and it's so memorable that the the male actor race this year is super hard interesting just for a moment? Consider that the other night sandler lost to driver for marriage story but the real tragedy of that situation is they both have at the same first name so they say what. Oh Adam just just a moment that lasts a lifetime. Well it's going to ask the light that multiple WII of Adam Sandler gets nominated for an Oscar. It could possibly win it because he has the the one Arrow in his quiver that nobody else has. which is what he said? On Howard Stern I will. I'll make the worst movie ever seen. If I don't get this Oscars they did it with grownups too. But there's another award. Winning would put up Kazoo. Yes yeah I was like. Oh my God this is exactly what he does and I kind of love him. I'm for that. I yelled out loud in my car. All of a sudden the whole universe just made it was like this is what he does. Oh my God I can stop wondering wondering now have solved the riddle the thirty year riddle of WHO. Adam Sandler is that adorable little chum. Who brings his guitar out on weekend? Update win an Oscar in two thousand nine hundred. A part of me wanted to go back to like. What was it around the two thousand two voters or two thousand three and be like you didn't give him that award for punch drunk love? Yup You did you. That one right over me are two of his incredible performances as an actor just like Jim Carey With Eternal Sunshine. I thought he should've been nominated. What's plus you've got man on the moon? Another one. Yeah Round Take it easy on Eddie Murphy gets robbed for everything every professor. How does he not win? The House Arkan Win for playing Alan Arkin in Little Miss Sunshine. There was nothing that was different. He had done at thirty five other movies. Eddie was incredible Ebola dreamgirls in credible. There's there's a the most depressing part of the awards race in my opinion. Is that once. You're on the inside of it. You can see why things win awards and other things. Don't it is first of all a matter of money. The studios are willing to invest a ton of money sending people places to see the movies and they send them to fancy parties and they give them gifts but also it's up to the star to campaign like they're running for president to win an award so it's like yeah you know. Some people are willing to do it in some people aren't and so the critics choice association gave Eddie Murphy An honor for Dolemite is my name. She one hundred percent deserves. He leveled the joint in two minutes with a speech that was. I'll never forget seeing in person but then he wasn't at the Party afterwards. And because Eddie Murphy I think if I had to guess I don't know him but I feel I feel like he's been famous for so long that he's is a certain dynamic between people that aren't famous sent him. That could be exhausting. I think he just wants to go home and hang out with his family and we see because it because Eddie Murphy is is that rare rare celebrity and I'll just speak to stand up comics where he's the one that could walk into the comedy restore when I'm there tonight. And if he walks in. It's not just me. Everybody else stops what they're doing so not like it's not like we're watching a famous colleague. Come in right right you know. It's not even like because you can hear guys like Chapelle and Chris Rock when they're in the presence of Eddie Murphy. Yeah they are like Oh my God. That's Eddie Murphy. So I think sometimes Eddie Murphy's case it's better to just win your award or lead and don't do all the networking because part of the reason why he didn't win for dreamgirls. Aimed girls has also every corner of Hollywood. That year had a billboard for Norman Norfolk and winning boogie nights was him bashing the awards before we voted loaded. They factor in critics. Take it personally kind of the game. They're human beings is all it hard of the game. Unfortunately contest intestine sometimes people that did the best performance actually win the award but they also put the time in an so sandler is facing the same kind of problem for the same kind of reasons you you just mentioned where these both of these guys are turning an amazing performances. But I think Eddie Murphy's feelings were hurt for not winning for dreamgirls but again it's like a full time job kissing hissing. Everybody's but and it's it's gross and yeah I'm proud to be a part of it. There's nothing worse than Kissing People's Butts from my limited. It'd experience it knowing stand up comics so being one I've seen it. Unfortunately it was really good. There are some evil mice in the corral. Ralph get rid of cheese You speak about. We got to wrap it up here but you speak about being all over the place. Here's the deal real quick for the National Board Review. Best Film Irishman Directors Tarintino for once upon a time back to Adam Sandler said best actress. Renee Zellweger a lot of people. The best supporting actor Brad Pitt. I love the best supporting actress. Kathy Bates Richard Jewel which was fantastic. How original screenplays? Uncut gems adapted was Irishman breakthrough performance. Paul Walter Houser in Richard Jewel. which is incredible? Molina MC soukous got Bester to`real debut for Queen Slim best feature was best four language Homeless Parasite Best Ensemble Knives and best documentary maiden which have no idea where maiden is. Wow so I've been interviewing a lot of documentary filmmakers for the deep cut and I have yet to come across maiden and so that's something that's in my head out saying cinematography Roger Deakins nineteen seventy deserves it. I did not realize that Irishman was an adaptation. Whoops oops yes so nothing will ever win against it? So these fellas paint houses right them with painting with head blood right. A lot sexier other kinds of blood people. You have to shoot in a in a room to get that thing painted twenty people in ruminants room just whack at just boom boom boom all right. It's just not the this isn't. The color was on the swab. I didn't Jackson pollock with it but all right. That's fine too Brad. It's new it's new. Oh interesting live chat questions real quick before we wrap up feel more pockets wants to know which spy franchise had the better better run over the last three movies mission impossible bond. Oh it has which had the best way run over the last three impossible. I mean technically Gerard. Taylor isn't a spy and the angel was fallen series. So I understand the question agrees Having mission impossible because it partially because what Tom Cruise cruise and his nutcase mentality will do for a stunt for a movie but I just felt more passion like everybody involved in his mission. Impossible movies once used to be good and bond sky falls really cool quantity solace inspector. It's like this show talks when you compare the two it makes me feel a little. You bet like bond is sort of coasting on its laurels. And it has this amazing in cinematic history whereas mission impossible is like comparatively the scrappy underdog underdog. Yeah man we got a really entertaining. These guys jet. You're not so tough Mr by jars over here. Roads that are drawn from a president next Mat Stoker smote most anticipated film of Two Thousand Twenty for Mark Ellis. How excited are you for coming to America to you? Coming to America to is way way at the at the top of my list I I will still include a Godzilla and calm square off in my most anticipated.

Who's your favorite holiday curmudgeon from the big screen? Scrooge the grinch is telling the Jim Carrey has portrayed both I love the and now people talk about Jim Carey as avenues. You're screwed in the Robertson mckesson. I thought Jim Carey was a revelation in that movie was Go. Scrooge is slightly over the grinch just slightly my favorite scrooge is George C. Scott from nineteen eighteen eighty four is a Christmas the nonmusical one that is the nonmusical one but it does feature a story performance by a Comic Force Roger Races and that Lucie Goodrich you can also find a nineteen eighty. Four's top secret. Oh boy well once again. LSU are incorrect. Scrooge is Bill Murray in the film screwed tax argue that I think that's a great point. Carol Candle Start Punching you every year to Henry Winkler and the American Christmas Carol the ABC TV movie from the late Eighty S. I Love Henry Winkler Disney plus. It's on there. I'm totally watching watching it. So lowliest Disney has done to to adults. Everyone only got a kick out of work Japan. Those rescue benches will have a job for the first then. Last night I switched over to on Disney. Plus and I've Nev- I hadn't done that adv getting yeah. I'm being converted thelonious Sir asks. What do you think Robert Deniro coming to antibiotic? When's defense in the Irishman? A bit of a tender issue with all the lines Anything you want to say about this. I actually WHOA. Why does she need? Defending people were complaining. That she doesn't she only has like three lines in the movie. And it's a symptom. Scorsese now she he treats female characters I I suppose I'm biased. Because I love scores. They love is movies. I didn't I didn't mind it. I thought she was very towering presence throughout the movie without having to speak in which did speak it was pretty powerful. I actually agree with that and I understand that. It's it's problematic to not have anyone different in your films because Cortesi largely is just like white dudes but he chose to tell a story yet again about just these three guys and and so. I didn't think that Anna pack when personally got shortchanged at all because I felt her in the movie and I thought she was so great as always I didn't personally we have a problem with it and since I speak for all women. We're good last week for all southern gentlemen. I think that that it was the story. That's crazy was tally and there was a subtle difference in the way that women women are portrayed from the era that were married to these gangs verses says Anna Pack Wins Generation because by the end of the film. You do see that there are changes in how they behave. It's not just you know. Pull over the car I want to smoke. Now it's it's it's we're treating these opinions. Were treating these people differently than we looked at them thirty years ago. Now having said all that the big issue with this is is just. Don't trust whatever. The headline is in read the actual quotes. Because I saw on twitter yesterday it was made to look like Deniro was okay with the fact that Anna pack when wasn't allowed to speak on sale. It's like oh no. He was actually defending her. So just go read the actual quotes reading from the guy that dress shockingly fuelling read. If you Emoji you can still figure out what's going on. Okay let's this is another live episode of collided movie talk. This is my last time hosting this week. Berry back tomorrow to handle in for Thursday and Friday and continuing forward thank you everyone for the kind words of since. I've seen some nice comments on YouTube very much.

Who's what's going to happen we'll find out on Monday night raw is Matt Gaetz the nation where we talked about news as we talk about politics where we gently affixed a bit on democracy to catch all the drool and barbecue sauce I your host Mickey and Pharcyde and I- obsessively chairs in their own investigative capabilities are allowed to subpoena for their own investigations but to your point they they're not necessarily subpoenaing for impeachment you don't necessarily need the vote on the inquiry to conduct the inquiry trill and each of the committee her but they don't have subpoena power and is there something about that that is troubling to you guys by any chance like this now but that was just like a little bit of a mouthful so they just went with lettuce in ultimately you guys tell me what you thought of just this week yeah I know I mean okay but here's my question though so the GOP because Nancy I guess didn't take that Congress even intended because the Republicans just keep stepping on themselves over and over again jumping into the skiff which by the way it can you imagine if Democrat entered the skiff wow I love it got okay here we go with held up traffic on top of his suit oil saw this plotline on in every porky's movies aac how `bout that for an open ended question that leaves you wondering what you'll say what she got a call it in high school so that triggered impeachment part of these things and I think this is what Nancy is planning on doing which is creating the snowball effect which I think is happening a lot easier than maybe she instead of just go up the Breakneck Ridge upstate the elevator even have to do this show rest and they actually have they didn't stop anything the testimony still happen they have transcripts of everything they've all said once this process is of gop away from a door and yet the protest lasted for hours so what are the sergeant arms do just like really indulging in it hold up watched average not my mind this whole production just should get me too crazy it's like the GOP is famous for Interest Ozzie emails hunter like you know at some somehow they'll bring in all the other candidates it'll just be ridiculous if they are allowed I think to a subpoena people the sergeant of arms ever get to do anything I mean he basically a hangs out eats like sweet tarts like yesterday when he had to like pool is all damning what were you guys surprised by the William the William Taylor Ambassador to the Ukraine he was the one that replaced the lady whose name I'm forgetting a WHO testified like last week or whatever so he's been around for a shorter amount of time congresses bouncer which Republicans are inside? It's not you guys pet you ugly you're not getting any air like stuff like that Oh totally yeah please I agree I think what we're realizing is that all the testimony just is echoing what is locked in this like hard one thing about the like not giving them subpoena power is that I just feel like it's the right move because everything will turn the remember porkies where the boys are like we're going to find out what's happening in the girls locker room what's going on in their put down the list of movies that don't necessarily Arvada leaving a single use cups here which is literally walk into the water I did that they would they be asking Republicans would want them to be waterboarded sent them to get mo- I mean this is actually illegal what they did they're not Eleni violence it is our arm was called new character soap opera I was like sergeant in arms get ready because you might be dragging someone the United States who's asking him to pay up not for something that benefits one hundred percent of the United States like these Republicans bring up the Louisiana per uh-huh scripted in pro wrestling apparently now they're just rushing the stage I think they pulled they folded upset with a chairs it's just like hey bud think it's super we're that we're like withholding aid in so the the Ukrainians can do a political which is not something the GOP dependence been able to determine the difference between yeah that's fucking it's fucking crazy in the other comedians you guys at guys now V acing what's up it's great to be back all right are you guys ready for us to start this show conspiracy theories and now it's going to get the point yes I did it but it's not a crime and you know what let me quickly Google my own doctor and he's also the one for our listeners do you remember when they were sending when those text messages were released between Gordon Sunland and this was the Guy William Taylor William Taylor just wrote these mint what Matthew Whitaker said Oh yeah ours crime abuse of power is not a crime so dr which is a transcript of the phone call with Ukraine is like that was their best idea which is like you know what we're gonNA take that transcript we're going to lock it in a hard drive and it's like in a check he asked the other person to pay up I okay well pay a hell four businessman part of his testimony that I found was how shocked he was when Gordon Silent gave him the reasoning which was the president is a businessman and when a business man is going to over they're going to start releasing the transcripts after they take out anything that's confidential or top secret information everyone goes I think the one thing about high crimes and misdemeanors in that old was at the constitution is that it doesn't have to necessarily be like a crime donny had to have like stolen from the Bodega it's that I made the smallest cry example such the cutest the White House Kevin Costner put on a suit and loaded gun I was watching to see the Capitol police I need to see a calendar that there is that it's not a crime it's it went from I didn't do it right you of course I did it but it was in the interest of the US government or oh but he I mean the the the testimony I think by all accounts was damning do you would it how do you feel like that leaves Republicans yeah I think the most important into Hunter Biden and we need to invest it like the the inquiry would turn into a thing that it's not about a right it'll just be there are people that know that transcript and can say what's Hap- I know reading on the call yeah yeah yeah so it's like we're just getting that information kind of doubled and tripled self defense which it is obviously not a defense it is just a series of words the subtext is all I mean it sounds great because no one knows try an example I just did that yesterday cryer trump famously caught at a five guys using the little clearwater cup for the just or something lasca deal yeah we all got Alaska Y'all we all got Louisiana purchase every United States citizens in society right the president was trying to protect your rights nageen he was trying to protect your freedom from interference hilarious thing if you like about the defense which feels dislike completely shattering league what can they possibly say at this point I mean the defense I could come up with this morning was you. That's essentially the argument that Matthew Whitaker the former acting gee said abuse of power is not a crime but but auto part of that deal Donald Trump's the only one that gets the benefit I think you're pointing out something called public interest versus personal gain freedom from hunter biting after is like the most sacred thing when our president even leaves the country and goes abroad it is an underlying rule and the Republicans were saying there was no quid pro quo the mere utterance of a political rival with a ahead of a of a Throw American democracy the other fun thing about this you guys there's things the other funding is that they keep saying no quid pro quo as if that isn't it right which I which I think we all understand as employees of something that you can be fired for something that is not a crime in in the ocean but let's look no you should read that's I know that's instate talking about your political rival with that person in regards to a deal of any kind even just saying anything is impeachable William June's that Ukraine absolutely new and that trump directed that's some of these people have been there for like ten years twenty years forty years I think like one of these guys literally quit the white quit the State Department after mm to withhold military aid and this all really goes directly to trump the other fun thing about this is that you know Sir dudes was defending trump by saying there was no quid pro quo because the there was no quo as in Ukraine didn't know that's sort of the like I love the elites perspective on the criminal justice system is like well if it didn't work for me if I didn't gain anything from it we were withholding military a no but that's what William Tay Tay Junior don't forget the junior he's he pointed out stock market crashed like my insider trading shouldn't be a crime I didn't make that much money because I've brought this up in regards to the quid pro quo that you're not supposed to talk about crazy foreign policy things because that that takes away from the president's ability to do his job Bra right and I WANNA point out I one of the operation headed by Rudy Giuliani And every these guys are just like hey man we sit in cubicles we fucking do diplomacy forty years of service because he just fell fell to was so mistreated the deep state it turns out is in fact like the rogue yeah so so the thing with that is that the the high crime and misdemeanor could just a violation of the office picks as his like allies in this fight to take on America the Ukrainians the all-powerful fierce fighters Ukrainians to come over donny likes to kind of talk about a deep state working against him but the the the interesting thing about all of these people is that they're just career bureaucrat book deal and she wrote a series of spy novels and I am the voice of those and the Harry Potter spell but like also it's sort of saying I can't be guilty if I didn't get what I wanted the machine the trump family has stolen from a boat have they have they clicked senior citizen on the on the movie tickets called the shield act a measure that requires candidates to tell law enforcement or no they're trying to they're putting it up for a vote I think mccown the only guy that came forward got his wife see Ya identity revealed Valerie Plame yet that was the only guy and he'd even come forward he was just talking like won't McConnell won't do it in the Senate but in the House they put up for a vote it would require candidate tell law enforcement authorities of any efforts to influence U. S. elections but foreign it features Jason Alexander Reading Phillip Roth Molly ringwald reading rising fiction star Mary terrier Jenny slate channelling an sexton under different political parties and the whole point of the State Department is that it's not political it's like really during the Iraq war in the run-up the Iraq War Asia voices and Russian voices and it was ridiculous anyways so go ahead and listen to those things on audible if you liked homeland you'll love it no one came forward are you kidding me it's like now if no one came forward when we went into a war under complete false pretenses and there was not one whistle blower ever for the press to say that in text message you know those those tax money a higher yeah so you know claim I'm so excited Valerie Plame who as mentioned her identity was revealed during the Bush administration she was by she then leaving this or not gonna go anywhere like you said McConnell's not gonna put it up for a vote but I thought that it was like a very gop friend governments and those acting on their behalf and it's basically just this like fun little move to get the GOP to have to vote on it like just like take a stand like do we email and Dick Cheney saw it and then he was a rap no one actually came forward nothing ever happened that just shows you that there is so much deference in the State Department and these I also want to point out a fun thing that I keep saying fun and it's just because that's where it's great guys life that the Democrats Pass Roy Sheffield Dr Michael Chiklis Shield Last question on this you guys do you think the officials to just working with whatever lunatic is in the White House well being a Democrat or Republican I can tell you something really ridiculous about me and my connection to Valerie that's the defense hunter Biden was trying to invade America and someone needed to stop him in that someone was crane that he picked he trump this is a witch and this is a witch hunt because you're right some people will be like I think the muddying of the of the argument is this happened yes and like you said so I am basically Valerie Plame so weird it was really fun because I got to do all these like em I five I base will hold I mean it refused to trump's base do you feel like they're just going to just be like nope this is a win the voice of like having a double Chin voice like an extra amount of like it's like that kind of shit chain impression is there a change in pressure yeah there's there's probably like ten I think maybe the longer God shut your eye the line they have taken his side Hook Line and sinker they are gonna go along for this ride forever and they don't even call it a witch hunt anymore it's a coup they're calling it a coup which it's not a big deal it's impeachable so what are we talking about one hundred percent absolutely they will hold they are have taken dance packed makes organic sustainable ECO friendly clothing for women men kids babies old with trusted ingredients in their natural deodorant is no different native deodorant is formulated without aluminum parabens and talk and it's with ingredients found in knee the thing occurring to our country what yes all of those words let's take a quick break and this special offer is to call one eight eight eight two zero one seven zero eight two to secure your coins and receive a free gold guide features such as coconut oil shea butter tapioca starch it comes in a wide variety of enticing sense for men and women plus they released new limited edition seasonal son the master distraction though and his little like you know trump supporting gop congress people who like did the run on the skiff fair trade certified factories and use of only organic and recife recycled fabrics which is like a super duper attractive thing I think for the nation listeners we'll get twenty percents off your first order but using the code fake if you're thinking about buying gold now is the time to buy gold value is increased twenty eight percent stands out as a brand that makes a real difference so go to wear packed dot com that's w. e.

Checkout Asli honored the Canadian people I I was a little worried about the black face scandal for him well they weren't in Canada whatever save the planet so why I mean and we all know that Justin Trudeau's campaign was beset by a bit of scandal you guys think I mean I love seeing that tweet I forget who it was from that was like can you believe it Justin Trudeau is still prime minister and he didn't win the popular vote can you imagine an all of the you know re tweets are like that's not how a parliament but can't allergy ahead we're ready for topic number one point five two quick short little baby topic again about Canada because for me told Yoder does not mean having to sacrifice on odor and wetness protection and native this proof there's a reason why it has over eight thousand five-star reviews there's also I'm not surprised he won because you know he is aside from the scandal you know known as very progressively are and has brought like reasons how he came into power is that they had such a conservative prime minister and things were not going well and how times change and everything like that I think they're just willing to be also a lynching aw oh you're buffet I felt comfortable quoting the fucking president the prime minister they had an Alex and and he and his party one and I want to point out that he ran on a very aggressive like ten years was at our super-conservative and Canada went through a very dark reminding us because I don't even think most people knew that that's one of the doc face incident and so I think also the calculation that people are able to make is is that better for us to have this person in office despite his black face yes all of those things happen smell it in my mind it's what he was a gross person as well so the whole the say that these scandals history knowing what he's trying to do in both cases I mean they're you know they're pretty PR- progress and it brings out the base to then over defend the person and that creates more you know just press yeah I hear you all right well I feel like we talked about Canada for like us being that basically the Teflon Don is now kind of a tough line like nothing really sticks because the new cycle so is basically the guy at the Frat we all knew that was not too creepy but just a little bit weird when he got drunk I bet he's good at hacky sack yeah but I mean I am excited by how how aggressive is climate change platform is yeah I think it's important I think we should also remember Canada's former prime minister the way to chill about black face a Canada to chill oversaw him in traditional non western the record I was super gross but I've while you're here you're here I've been working on a little acoustic Dave Matthews band satellite yes yes yes in from an agrarian economy into an industrial economy right and so they wanted to have to be very competitive seven day workweek so that like their factories would just okay so he's a young guy he's done a lot of silly things he also used at bars he do this thing where he faked fall down steps as like a gag yeah he does all all of these like a lot of discontent because people are like I just don't see anyone I'm sad I'm loaned lay and I don't WanNa fuck and hang out with purples like I barely know any purples again that's all I know let us move on to actual topic number two so we read a piece in the was ation outfits leading up to this moment you're like oh he's that guy he's writing to Indian wedding and it's like I'm going all out and work seven days a week no breaks and so they got rid of the weekend as we know it so it wasn't like the Saturday Sunday deal what you got instead was in two thousand nine hundred eighteen only give you press and as long as you like double down on what the public feels about you doc it's a constant hassle and like every group Texas like you're just waiting to see who bails I you know I think it's it's not a personal failure posted the same color card just wasn't prioritized so they often had different days off so the whole thing was just a disaster in created is a card and it had a color on it and that color indicated what days you got off and so you were Purple Orange Red blue whatever and then based on view union that had something called the prayer Vika I'm totally mispronouncing that and so what they did what they wanted to do is turn the Soviet Union it's like I'm going to see a concert tonight and two out of the five people are probably gonNA show up in the middle of the concert because of work or like something that just came up and I think that's it was like really good at the national sports reminds me like there was a guy in my college dorm that used to make banana wine and his claws they called y you never see your friends anymore by Judith Shull Lovitz and it started and it started with this interesting history that I didn't know that I thought was really exciting about those you know and so I guess now the argument the argument that this article is kind of making is we've sort of put ourselves into a all have different color cards does it does that ring true does it feel that way I mean I have scheduling issues with all my friends a couple of ladies end to my really good friends and this last lunch it took us like weeks to figure out when we were going to do this lunch it was past that who cares and if there is a fun I mean I think the Ralph Northam singing in Virginia is also a good example of that is just like he's still governor right and he had eh back guy yes it was gross upriver where we are we all have this kind of constant working schedules we never see each other anymore and it just it it becomes impossible and I guess do you guys have any spontaneity in social life anymore I I'm adda spot and he's tough I mean I think at times I will spontaneously drink alone that's something or likely to texts like day of like in two hours I'm going to go see Zombie Lan too which is something I did this I have a two hour window aside gigs are your kids are your kids like traveling hockey team or whatever and it's like just everyone's overbooked I I always thought this was a product of exit three friends who are like in trainable distance of that and like one followed through and was like yeah I'll be there I like that's nice sure has shifted like exactly it's like where we are I'm constantly working fact the weekends are so my most favorite time to work during the day because you don't get very many email and it all also weird things happen where you'd be like I have the day off but my kids are at school so then I guess I'll never see my kids husbands and wives you when they were they were then you go and have somewhat whatever's left of an evening but then scheduling is so impossible there are friends now where we I that I have where we job yeah because I mean that wasn't example but I mean I think truthfully the what happens is then you end up hanging out with people that aren't that you would have Mondays off or whatever it is and so that what happened was people became friends with the with other purples what these things and yeah I go to a bunch of weddings that's when I ended up seeing everybody so yeah yeah I mean do okay student loans and my six figures student loan debt is not going to get paid off if I'm having dinners every now I have to hustle you don't have to suit and tie and he's like no no sweet sweet I wanna go back you angry to have friends sometimes are like why the fuck do I have friends I think it's the friends that are trying to guilt me in the now in terms of like society giving us some sort of framework that forces us into hanging out do you taught I'm getting from your voice here which is a beautiful voice by the way it's very eloquent gets real tight when I get excited the tone I'm getting is that it almost makes yeah I think it's speaking to this larger thing which is like we're always on the clock working little side Gigs and little extra things of your parents store because liquor stores have to be like small businesses they can't be changed right right right right there's like things in place to keep people from maybe that's like the solution to this don't plan ahead Sherry if you're doing like a party or whatever then it's nothing's ever GonNa happen it let's go to dinner we'll start an email and then they'll just be like okay goodbye forever never see them no I have like a standing lunch with you or things about you that it actually doesn't stick like isn't like it's the whole look Warren issue you know I think the yeah I like this line of thinking and do you wish that something like that existed so that Sunday's couldn't just also turn into a day where everyone in retail still had to work everyone in commerce still oh wait more than the other person are way more than these boomers that left us with the worst economy since the Great Depression so that that is where at least my head growing up with immigrant parents and that like work ethic of like constantly working in conflict self-sacrificing will be able to see but really it's just the sign of the Times it's like I think that's probably where it failed instead of being like you get one of these days off for re in reality to these off instead they're like you get one fifth of the week off it's much better way to measure how what what is productivity at the end of the day yeah I mean so do you so you seem committed to the working all the time that you're doing I mean when I pay these student loans off I will retire about this Soviet Act that I am working too much and like when this article like didn't address is that inlay capitalism in people that are in our thirties or in our age group especially we have a lot of her hourly rate to work is really the way forward in the kind of new economy where it should be value what do you bring to whatever job or whatever business that you're good friends with people who are like proximity liberal yeah yeah yeah exactly that's life that's like being in your thirties oh that's sad which is like I think just too weird like during the French Revolution they tried to change the calendar and change how many hours in the day and it's like you can't throw that much exactly no one can there's nothing inbound no one's just like why did you why is this broken right right I don't have to do anything but just like do the work and remember when I was living in Paris you're gonNA start reciting they don't have that in New York I think though when I first moved to New York liquor stores were closed on Sunday New York you can't buy liquor from a grocery having fun I don't know I think like you're right like the kind of forced time on the weekends yeah I I guess it used to happen and launches that'd be helpful in Spain they have dinners late that are big family dinners took built into society we're the ones America I know it's funny fucking kind of hot liquid spilling all over your body is just so inelegant there are a couple in Paris unfortunately but it's it's it's a thing that hasn't totally caught on because the idea that you would walk around like some sort of vagrant holder do you know isn't that presuming that that the forty hour workweek is still viable which I don't I don't think it really is I don't think forty hours or even ascribing an hour any jobs and I was I had to wake up early hungover and go to work and I I remember like walking into a glass alley and trying to anymore and the guy was like we don't do like we don't do that that's what he's like just sit here and drink urgency is we have these standing tables so instead of taking a thirty minute leisurely said we read the paper you do a nice ten minute stand and you drink who is so there was a time when things were closed on Sundays I think at some maybe states things are maybe more closed on Sundays blue law you can't go to the liquor store Offi and I gotta go to work as a coffee size in France that's like almond it's like a small yeah it means almond involves the military by the way none of them bothered looking up even the most cursory definition describing the over overthrow goes like looking at let's have a hanging out there who go to the next month I'm like yeah I got things I got things to do I got plans I'm sorry I got student loans way okay so what into a ball just go to Bob like I've got some time we go to this bar to hang out with strangers sound like you're showing up drunk already you talk to the yeah get a coffee to go day and and fucking hate myself more than you guys eight me no one can ah I think I read right was that they turned it into a five day week yeah so then they were like Mondays now blurs day or whatever and so then I'm an antisocial and just it is and the funny thing is they don't it's not like they're crazy they have a sense of time there of urgency friends with anybody that's around me and then I got an hour that I go back to work or do whatever but then I have friends that are like hey we never hang out why you call them just like I don't know we got like bowl what about there's only so much we can Europeans they take a break after lunch they just take a nap and they take they go for more social lunch environment and I hey baby come I've been to Paris Brag and it's totally weird like you have to go to a starbucks coffee together right which in starbucks the little in a little milk a little America someone would get murdered if you were like yes here's your almond sized coffee you and no listeners know embarrassed and I remember that like I had this job teaching English and structured everything that is so hell bent on productivity and do this while you're walking don't ever enjoy food on its and was that and then you yeah and they had these nice counters like everywhere and so there is something about the way we a little bit of the the Little Bit d attraction of like some you know like trump movement wow I do think like the activities that people would normally other thing the the Iraq Afghanistan Veterans Association the IV a they've actually proposed donating veterans day too is do it quickly so that you can do the thing that you've already over scheduled at while never seeing your friends and the other interesting thing that this article eh sales and suddenly people are going to start scheduling their weddings on three day election day weekend like well we're going to make it fireworks themed brought up was that they pointed out that scheduling gets in the way of democracy because in places like Iowa where there are caucuses it requires a lot of time how can you commit yourself moving but we're like okay well we all can't go to McDonalds every single day for lunch even though that's actual fast food we want this to be a better experience and Italy's the same way they do the the origins of totalitarianism to tell tearing movements or mass organisations of atomised isolated individuals do you feel like we're unable to vote because they have to work people that skew Democratic ps reminder you guys we have early voting in New York City Oh yeah early voting coming increasingly atomised an isolated because we're in a structure where we can't see our friends moreover we have these over determined schedules and do you feel like that explains a- At my job this year and like the the actual company holidays are like five total like the day after Thanksgiving not a holiday but like election day would just become an barbecues it'd be fun no one people do on Veterans Day it's on a Tuesday and Monday is still aggressively a work day you know that I don't know I wanna just close by by reading this thing and seeing what you guys feel about totalitarian at this is a quote from Hannah errant she wrote in the new election day perfect time making that day it's pretty amazing and that is like the most reasonable thing where they're like we've sacrificed so much take the day you idiots notes with the other one being that it'll destroy I all right let's move on and listeners let me know what but it's fast food gross it or whatever those date in Dagan exactly all those places because our generation again is constantly moving or we all are doing this vic process should be the thing that we prize but we don't I was thinking about Election Day being a national holiday and and then I immediately thought Oh there's going to be election day ever and it will just become another thing that people don't do because if you're given a day off which we have so few you I didn't get indigenous peoples you like go to church and like go to the church basement and eat bad pancakes like those are generation or the next generation isn't doing instead they're doing kind of Alex thing that just like there's not just sit to stand it and it's also they just do ESPRESSOS as opposed to us were a Venti is how we drank with heart activities like I do pop in Yoga class where I don't have to actually talk to anyone and so wait what was your question number of people that can't vote because they can't work yeah it's it's insane and Republicans will not support this because the people that are generally we were having a conversation he had the courage to say that he was a trump voter and we actually had the decency not to call them a racist and a fascist but we were just walk us when you're like we'll have like sixteen other appointments that day so I thought that was an interesting point because it really does it gets into way in the civic process meanwhile the even out I gotta go and I eventually so I found out some things I may or may not have gone through her glove compartment on her car when because we were sharing a car and I'm like thinking about yoga but I do as activities have become more isolated and it feels empowering because you get to choose your schedule and we thought everyone was a liberal but one gentleman was conservative and he didn't say anything while we were all just like you know given trump's dozens of making fun of every her about what was happening and he was like I love you know blinded by the light and he just would not see this and so eventually I was like people advice they'll be delighted to take by Goldfarb and it really got me to thinking about a vice and weather it works Do you guys ever give advice I was just curious about how he was feeling I think we all can do that these days well that's a lovely not with a two and that things are happening this way now goes well I didn't expect this to happen and we were just able to have a real chat and it was only because us which is I'm curious why do that I'm curious as to why you feel that way or just asking probing question elite my intention was to protect by Frat and I was you know really difficult and I yelled I lost my cool it was really bad thing we didn't talk agents to get the other person talkie kind of guide them is really the best way to give advice I think well my the thing I always do which is a huge mistake won't schedules super individual but it's actually going to like destroy us Great Sina was just like oh wonderful tell me why and he's actually not really excited about anything that he's been doing since then I wanted to shake things up he didn't like Hillary I said how how does it make you feel just clearly apparently and she was a racist as well I mean I was like see and we were roommates at the time and I was just everyday seething with anger thing that he's been doing and he's like you know I actually voted for trump then like the room gets quiet but I get really excited because I get to engage with so I just wrote that her name was not her name and then I was like all whatnot this is the this is the this is it and I called and I told him that and he this article pointed out that I really really resonated with me

I'm such a huge fan of her as a person but also as part of little big town one of my favorite country groups. Kimberly flatman is a cookbook writer. She had her own cooking show and now she has written a kids. Book called a dali for christmas that we read for many. Bff book club. This conversation is so special. And i'll tell you the truth. Something went wrong in the recording. And we thought we had lost it. And jesus back. That's what gin and i are standing by is that this conversation was rescued literally. And it's because it really matters. I'm telling you there are some things that kimberly says in here so it may be a note taking one for you but i promise you. It's one that you want to have some space while you're listening whether you're on your treadmill you're in your car.

Here's my conversation with kimberly schladming from little big. Now thanks for doing this. This is so fun. I have been so excited about this. I ll door you. I adore your podcasts. And i i can't believe i'm actually being a part of one. I'm so ready for starters. Can we talk about cooking. I i mean. I know everybody knows you for multiple things. Your little big town. You're a author but also when you cook on the internet it makes me so happy. Just listen i used to have a cooking show and everything on the show would be perfect because we would cut. When i would mess up and redo it and year and i never sounded like an idiot but when i do these these little instagram cooking videos for my kitchen when it's just crew of one which is me you mess up in our word it takes me forever. It takes several hours to do one of those anyway. Because i have to prep everything and i wanted to all look really great and then when i get in one because i get one shot because it's not like i have extra of i have an extra turkey or so. Yeah yeah yeah. I don't know if i messed up. I just have to keep going. And sometimes there are there disasters. But i figure it's so twenty twenty. Yes that's right when you were filming. What was like the most fun part about having you're cooking show. My favorite part about that show was when we went out into what we call the field where i would learn something like i would go to chicken farm and i would learn about all about chicken farm and then come back to the kitchen and cook something up. That was my favorite thing. I loved that show. Oh man it was very fun too. I mean how many cookbooks do you have out. I just have one okay. Yeah it feels like five but only one because it took me forever. It took me two years to that thing. It's amazing and it's always southern your thing right. We're pressing. I love other kinds of food but i just stick to southern as far as trying to you know instruct people how to cook because i feel like that's the only place i'm qualified to give me a casserole recipe and i could do that. Do i just had this experience. Where i was taking some food friends who were sick and had to make three different things in the kitchen at the same time and when i was done i was like i've so thankful for my mother and my grandmother's who taught me how to do that. Just how like ballots multiple things in the kitchen at one time. I know it is. It's an it's like a dance. It's like a dance and you gotta know indigo where an too long get in trouble. Who taught you how to cook. Oh my mama mama taught me how to cook in. Both of my grandmothers were amazing cooks. So i've just stood beside them. My whole laugh. You know learn from and i never had a any kind of formal training. I only had the nothing. No no i need it. I never had it. I've done a lot of trial and error on my own. You know my husband's been my guinea pig over and over and over and the bandmates have been my guinea pigs. let yeah. I learned to cook from my mama She she's an incredible cook. But what. I guess. I mostly take away from. Her cook in my childhood is that she would cook for people whether whether they were celebrating a baby or they lost a family member or they lost their job or they broke their leg or no matter what it was. She immediately went to the kitchen and started cooking and she would take she would show up at their doorstep with a guy or a casserole or something just to love on them and she taught me that and just treasure that i. I love to love on people with food. My brain's going directions. Let's first talk about so many of our friends listener. Mom's your mom you have girls and we'll talk about but when we're thinking about it's christmas time holidays and we have a lot to cook and like there's just kids under our feet the whole time. What's the benefit of having them in it with you making memories and sometimes sometimes it does get hectic you know and then things get messy so messy and i'm kind of clean freak so i have to tell myself it's okay. We're making memories together this up as you go on your instagram cooking. Do i do i do. I learned that from our real television show to clean as you go by. The set doesn't look so nasty. yeah And i try to do that at home. I do love to clean my go and it ended. It does help but My girls love it daisy. She's a great cook. She's the thirteen year old and she loves to cook and dolly's just now getting into you know wanting to put her hand in her finger as happened. Last week was one of my friends. My friends had a baby boy. And i wanted to make them some of these cookie bars that i love to make and so i told her she could help me. I'm but she couldn't touch the bowl. She can just sit there on the counter watched she could not touch the ball but every time i look back and she was licking her fingers. Okay so these cookie bars aren't going anywhere we're all of them. They're not counted. Oh yeah that's so true. I mean when. I dropped off food for my friends. I left it on the porch and i drove away. Texoma said it's there and you don't want a three year old on the counter while you're making something friend speaking of your girls you've been off the road. Everyone has been off the road but little big town's been off the roads since march where y'all had y'all started tour. Yeah we had just released our new record not fall in january and it started off amazing we we debuted at carnegie hall and then we went to the apollo the next two nights and then it was just off to in an amazing my favorite tour we have ever ever done. And then mid-march We did a show in atlanta which was really awesome. Because that's where i'm from as you know and Karen my bandmates also from so. We had a lot of family members there. It was such a fun show but the next weekend. I was on my way to bus call. We were going to detroit. Yes so my girls are in the car. it's about midnight. are they going with you. Yeah they always go with me. Do you have your own busters. All the band on the bus together. Well now. We have our own buses which we waited. Kooning years for that. Right is awesome. Yes yeah it's still explain. Why bus calls at midnight for people who don't live road like we do. Yeah bus call at midnight so that you can get on the bus and sleep and the driver drives you all not to wherever you're going and it just. It's a much better way. It's much better to sleep those eight or ten hours away then to sit on the bus and awake for those eighteen hours. That's for especially with kids. Yes but anyway so we were on our way to bus call and i got a phone call from our manager and he said well you need to. We were on our way to we. Were about to get on the bus to go to detroit. And he said you need to turn around and go back com. The detroit show got cancelled. I was like no in that we had two shows in detroit that weekend and he said but we think we're still going to chicago so we might leave again tomorrow to head to chicago and i was like okay this crazy okay so then i got a call the next day and he said well we're not going to chicago and we're not going next weekend and we're not going. The next week in our next weekend were done. It was terrible. It was scary. It was sad we have put so much work into this tour that we got to do for about five wheat. Right was it to do the whole year but There are much bigger problems this year and so many people are kind devastate. Yes but we can hold both. We can hold the gratefulness and the disappointment. You can bet that's your first of all. Nightfall is a very good album. If our friends have the to yet it is very it. Felt like it should come out in january like it had both the like brooding wintery feel and also celebrate tori new year. Feel so it's a great album. So i would like to talk about the bus for a minute. I love me. You have your own bus with your girls. Did you decorate it and everything listen. We work with him hill bus company and two years ago. They told us we have. We been with him for ever. And they're such good people and they said we're going to let you design your own buses and we were out of like oh. I did a girly busts. I mean it's what and latte pink and grey and it is a little haven on wheels and we love it so very much. We call it the girl's best but we let my husband come along. Today's dali have their own bunks. Yeah they do. They ever looks and dolly's little bunk has a little crib thing on the sad. So she didn't fall out. But they love their bunks. Dali's bunk is all padded out with foil for you know she. They stages they love being on the road. They have missed it so much. So i mean they are always saying. When are we getting back on the bus when we get back on the bus. That's all they know you know they've both done it. Since they were tiny. One day we were riding in the car and dolly said mommy when the kuna by was his oval. Can we go do one. More show will more time my heart. Yes like and yes but it will not be one. It will be a lot hungry. Yes i mean talk about for all of our friends. Parenting right now especially in christmas at this at the end of this year there has to be at now. I'm not a mom yet. So i don't know this but there has to be these conversations with kids all the time about what they're disappointed about. Do you plan those. Do you just try to check in once a week like do you make sure your kids are talking about what they're disappointed about. Yeah well with dolly. It's it's easier because she's three so you are. She just kind of goes with the flow so she didn't realize that corona viruses d. You know necessarily something that has stopped the world from charleston right. Yeah at school. She i know. Yeah but daisy whose thirteen is in that age where. She's got girlfriends that she wants to be with all the time and they have things planned and you know it's and she's a gymnast so there were so many months she was not able to do gymnastics So she has more disappointment than than dolly does but like last night My parents were going to see my parents next week in their older and my mom has parkinson's and so we have to be really careful so she and her girlfriend had planned to sleep over and so i had tell her last night. Maybe you can't. You can't do that right now. Right before. Thanksgiving it's just too risky. And of course that broke her heart but but she's is such a good girl she gets it. She understands she. Just you know we don't none of us lack it right right that he understands with her you know at her age just want to be really honest and she knows how serious this viruses and how series we have to take it in and she's great. They wear a mask at her school all the time and while her school actually just went virtual again so just back and forth getting a snow day ever again because every school knows how to do it when they're home. I'm sorry to tell kids. But that's exactly what i thought that when this first start i'm like oh no. Snow days are over unless the schools like you know what go play outside. But so i met daisy when we did the mini. Bff book club reading your book a dollar for christmas. How did you make daisy. How did you make her so polite. And so lovely. She's like a little grownup. Oh she's such a good kid. Oh i don't know. I don't know how we did that but she just awesome. She has such a compassionate heart. It her heart is huge. She loves people. She's always excited about doing something and move onto the next big thing and she's getting everyone involved and all of us have days where we're things things aren't so great and not every day for her is perfect but she. She's such a good kiddo. And i'm so grateful. She's a great little mama to dolly and She's off france.

I feel like for so many of our friends when we were talking about it on many. Bff book club. It was like okay. Here's a book where you can explain. What a miracle is. Here's a book where you can talk about adoption. Here's a book where you can talk about prayer. Here's a book where you can talk about disappointment in your family. Yeah i mean like will you back up and tell us a little bit. Whatever you're willing of of your story of getting pregnant and trying to get pregnant again. Yeah absolutely so. When daisy was just four years old she started asking for a baby and she everyday she asked and every day she prayed to god for a baby every single day when she lay down night instead her prayers she asked god for a baby and sometimes that's all she said to god she just so badly wanted a baby so what she didn't know of course is a four year old that my husband and were already trying to have a second baby so let me back up for a second and tell you what happened before that i was married before to an incredible man who died suddenly and for all the years we were married which was fourteen years. We tried to have a baby and It never ever worked out. We went through. I did not know that. Part of your story. Yeah yeah My first husband. Steve rhodes Whom i was married to for fourteen years in two thousand five he suddenly died and all those years together. We had been trying to have a baby. So i had been told i have in dimitrios so had been told you know. It's not likely you will get pregnant. So i married. Two men named steve like he said i'll pick. I'll pick a steve. I owe you guys lineup. yeah yeah anyway So i married my my now. Steve whom i call slap or sloppy because of our last name. Because it's weird to call my next husband same as when we were married. We didn't think we could get pregnant because of me and we got pregnant on our honeymoon. Oh my gratiot less so in my heart and soul. I wholeheartedly believe that. My stephen heaven went to god and said please give her what she has always wanted. And as my wedding gift to you to from heaven. That's what he gave us. He gave us stacey god and musc- feel like really had a part in that so we had daisy surprisingly. Yeah we're married and we're pregnant. yeah well It was amazing so then when days he was four she started asking for a baby and we had already been trying and we had Already actually had one miscarriage In that town so we told daisy. We're you know we're going to try to have a baby. So through several years from when she was four years old to nine years old every night for those five years she asks for a baby and slap in the whole time or trying really hard. We started seeing special doctors. And we went through all kinds of fertility the most fertility treatments. You can do. We did everything and we lot. We kept going through losses. We lost him and then You know i would go into ultrasound appointments where we had heard a heartbeat and then now there's no heartbeat and it was just devastating so much that we went through and then after we had the last loss we decided. It's time for adoption because something we always wanted to do so we. We've decided it's time to start the adoption process so we started that in daisy her her she never stopped believing ever ever ever. She kept praying because she kept the leaving. God was going to answer her prayer and so when we started the adoption process it came. It became even more real to her. You know this really is going to happen so she got even more excited and kept praying so we all the paperwork and all the social worker visits all the stuff you have to do which is a lot for adopting and we got Approved and then. They told us that we would wait about eighteen months or two years for a baby. Well i had told all my friends that we were in the adoption process. Just to kind of kind of let them know. And if you heard of any baby you know that needed family to let me know. Well lo and behold about three weeks. After we were approved. I got a call from a friend who said there's a baby girl who needs a family and as they like what we were at my husband's mother's house in virginia and we got this call and i was like oh and daisy was sitting on the bed with slapping me where we're about to all what about an nasa's like what what is it. What is it. What is it. And i said There's a baby girl who needs a family and daisy started jumping up and down on the bed and she's like. Oh you jesus thank you. Jesus thank you jesus. And she's crying. It was immersed beautifully. I believe i believe this is our baby. Well i didn't have any more information. I was like maybe hang on. Hang on hang on. We don't know anything about this. You gotta calm down right now. Well this is our baby. I believe i believe thank you. Jesus thank you jesus. And she just having a revival. Brian down on the bed so she's still believing. Yeah so that was dolly and she was in our arms just a few days later. And but oh i forgot to tell you something super important a few weeks before that daisy decided she was going to ask santa claus for a baby so when she told us that we were like okay are at so she went and sat in san diego. God kit do it. I'm going to turn to sand exactly. She sat in santa's lap at the adoption agency. Christmas party and she said santa claus. All i really want for christmas is a baby brother or sister and santa looked at slapping me with this kind of sad look on his face he looked at daisy. And he said we'll darlan. I don't know that even i can do that. And she said well. I know but i thought you can talk to god about it. Oh my gosh everyone in the like. Oh so you know what we believe. That god in santa claus got together and they brought us our dolly It was not long after that that she was in our arms that is real and that was three years ago rule over three years ago. I mean you're what what. I don't think people would know looking at your life. What we see on the internet grammy's acm's cma's ama little town super famous to be clear that behind the scenes there is just such devastation over and over again. Yeah tell me about your relationship with god when you are steve and hadn't had kids when when you can't get pregnant again and that window between stephen slapped there had to be like god. What are you doing here. Oh yeah one hundred percent Well my greatest dream. My whole life was to be a mama. I wanted it more than anything. I had other dreams and they've come true. But thank thank god but i i had this dream of being a mama and it was the strongest dream. That's why we tried so hard my first marriage. And yeah when i lost steve i i question god why why why. Why did you not let me have a baby with him. So that i would have a part of him to take with me. You know to have in my life. And i did not understand that i have a super duper strong faith though. My parents really instilled that in me. And so i still had hoped that it could possibly happen somehow some way but i. I was devastated. I was upset with god. Because i just did not understand and i know he understands that he knows that we're only human and we can only deal with things as much as we can and then we just get upset with him he and fans that but So then we had daisy. Which was and then i was like. Oh this is thank you god. This is why. Because i needed my daisy. This is why. I didn't have a child before. Who would then have had to have lived without their their daddy. But you gave me this amazing miracle now with this new man who is also sent from heaven to me and has healed me of so much pain so then after that. We wanted to to have a sibling because we thought that was important for her. And that's not always important for families sometimes Single only children are exactly what that family needs. But we thought that our family needed a sibling. Daisy so i thought well. I guess we got pregnant one time. We can do it again so when we started trying just naturally. It wasn't working. It wasn't working. It wasn't working. And so we started a little bit of fertility. Just a mild little fertility treatments. And and. That's when i had the miscarriage That was so just shocking. Because no one in my family close to me had ever had one. So i certainly wasn't expecting it as you know. Nobody's expection it. But i wasn't expected either really didn't know how to deal with it. Honestly it started. My miscarriage actually started on stage. Show no yeah during a show on stage and i. i don't share that with. I haven't shared it before now. But i think i think it's important for people to know that as my laugh may look glamorous like you named out those things earlier it you know behind the stage door it was a lot of devastation and so i know how it feels for women you. You're going through such hard times now. I know how it feels to the embarrassment of not being able to have a child. We're supposed to be able to have children and so when it does happen. There's actually a sense of embarrassment. And then i know how it feels to by ten or twelve pregnancies pregnancy test at the same time. And you do one one day and it's negative and you do the one the next day in a negative and you think well maybe in the morning. I'm going to do another one because maybe in the morning. I'm finally going to finally be positive. And then it's not it's negative and the negative negative negative and you throw all those away and next month you try it again and it. It's just it's so hard on the heart and hard on the spirit but then we got more you know. We began to get more serious and we did In vitro fertilization which is very intensive and then we did matt that failed and then we did that again and so you know there was a lot of sadness but also because we had daisy and she was such a gift and she was such a brat she was our hope and that's why i keep smiling because of the love and her spirit which is so big and infectious. It's like it's so much like yours. You cannot of them. Yeah yeah you can't not small when you're around anti-death same as my daisy. And so you know she kept us going and also because of what. I went through with my late husband and god restored me wholly and completely. I knew that god could do miracles again. I knew that i had to trust him. Because when i lost my steve. And i questioned him so much then. He showed me how what how beautiful restoration can be. So i knew it. I knew that god could answer our prayers. I had no idea how he would answer. After all those disappointments. Of course. I lost a little bit of hope but because of what he had done for me and shown me on my life before i knew i always still had some hope. Yeah our friends who are listening who this always happens at the holidays. It's their first holiday without a parent or their first holiday when they've lost a spouse or thought this year they'd have a baby at christmas and they don't and i imagine all those. What would you say to those men and women who are listening. This is that. Christmas could paying loss more than pink joy for them. Yeah i would say sadly that the first christmas will probably feel more sad than it feels mary for sure. Also at thanksgiving eight years ago. My husband's brother was killed by drunk driver on the night before thanksgiving so we've leave experienced as a family a lot of that loss in around the holidays and it's it's terrible the scranton go through that holiday season actually the first time you go through. Every i for that yeah. I is brutal and raw. But god and time do he'll and once you get past those firsts you do begin to feel lighter and more hopeful and just life just slowly slowly but surely does get better and oh it pains in breaks my heart to think of the people who are gonna go through hard times Right now starting next week. It's just going to be hard. But i'm here to tell you you will make it through that even on the days. You think there's no way you're gonna make it through one day. I'll tell you this and this is also a story. I've never told anyone but not long after my husband died was probably a few months after i was in our closet and i had not yet cleaned out his clothes. I couldn't make myself so i was. I walked in the closet. And i literally crumbled into pieces fell onto the floor. Couldn't get myself up off the floor. I was totally alone in my house. Me and my dog and the phone rang. And i had a phone nearby. And i forced myself crawling to the phone and it was my daddy and he said baby. I felt like you needed me right now. Yeah and he. And i said daddy. I'm on the floor of the closet. I need new really bad. You know i. I think those moments are there just devastating but know that you are not alone. There's somebody out there and whether they call you or you have to call them. Don't lay there alone. Don't lay in that closet floor all by yourself. Just pick up the phone because somebody wants to love on you hand man. i'd also say to people. Thank you for telling us that story. By the way i would also say to people if someone comes to your mind pick up the phone because yes your dad just gone. Oh i don't need to worry about calling can't relate but ping someone comes to your mind. Pick up the phone. Send a text some. Yes your gut that. There's a reason they're coming to your mind. That could be a nudge from god. Yes follow through with that absolutely forever to the person. Thanks all right. There's one time that it's a moment like that. You don't even know the moment how much they need somebody. that's right. Yeah that's that's that's such great advice. And i really haven't thought about that but yeah i think that's so important if they come to your mind act on it. John mayer had that song. Say what you need to say to say. That's so good. That's really all that song says and it's it's just epic because it's just a lesson to all of us say what you need to say because you never know how much it's needed and you never know if you'll have ever have the chance again. Yes and so the whole time through this whole journey. You're still you're singing with little tunnel time so your job and your calling is still going. Yep yep that's my job. And i'm still doing it and they are. I mean especially when i lost my first husband. They literally days literally physically carried me. Because i i had no strength They they walked with me through that. Like oh i mean they were my little angels during that time. So is my family they it. My family was incredible but they weren't in the same town as me. Most of that time and little big town was and so yeah they were they nursed me they really nursed me along and as i say my family wasn't there i can only imagine how difficult that was for my parents. You know because. I insisted they wanted me to stay down in georgia but i insisted on coming home because i thought it was important and i thought it was important to stay responsible to my bandmates. Although they would have given me as much time offers. I needed. But i did leave my parents when i left. I went down there. Because we buried my steven my hometown because i wanted to always have him near when i left there i know i can only imagine how devastated and how hard it was for them to let me walk out that door. Yeah now figured about your girls. Can you imagine oh no. I don't not but they did because they knew that i needed that. And so they let me but my parents are just my whole family. They're just remarkable. Amazing people were talking about the same thing that the theme of all this is. How do we hold gratefulness and sadness while and year saying it like there was. It was such deep sadness. But you're so grateful for all the people who stood with you in that at hell literally held you literally literally physically held me yes.

And now back to our conversation with kimberly so one of the questions. Are you know our friends. Get to sit in questions. They love me to ask you and leslie asked. Do you think little big tunnel ever do a gospel album. Y'all do have such so many of your songs getting relate to gospel situations and gospel themes but. Do you think every gospel album. Abbas love that we all love that. We all grew up singing in the church. I mean all of us say the first time we ever saying in public. It was in the church And that music so much to us. We recently well not know several years ago. We decided to do the kris kristofferson song why me lord yes aw so we've covered that a lot and then a couple years ago. We were at a charity event. Matthew mcconaughey has this great charity of in austin texas for children. And we've played it a lot but the last time we played two years ago kris kristofferson was there and he decided to sing why me lord and asked us to come onstage and sing it with them and i was. Okay god i you can take now but so that song means so much to us. If we did do a gospel record. I think it would definitely start with that song because oh it's just such a good one but yeah. We love gospel music. I'm daisy has always called it. Guide music's was little of course in the car and she's like can we. Can we listen to guide music. So we love. Have you done at christmas album yet. No we have you. We keep planning on it something. We literally were picking out songs in doing arrangements and everything about four years ago and jim had a vocal chord mishap. I'd have surgery so that didn't happen in in every year. We're like okay. We gotta do christmas record. But then people might not know is that you have to turn in those records by july record. Label does whatever record labels do and it takes them forever so we just never have been able to do about you lie so one of these days. We are going to do a christmas. Yeah people don't know y'all doing photo shoots leading wearing sweaters and hats because it's the middle of the summer crazy that is i will. I would at some point. I need to hear you sing. Mary did you know. I just need ally love your voice and your heart singing. Mary did you suddenly. We have cut a lot of christmas records. We've i mean christmas songs so we have songs out there. We just don't have a full record but we haven't done that one and i love that song. Gosh about brings me to tears every time more than any other of like ouachita she yeah. We can't even talk about it. Made me get to. you're talking to you. Do you have a favorite little big town song. That's one of our friends wanted to ask. How do you pick a favorite with. Y'all have more number one that most people have saw. Well how do you pick we do. We've made a lot of records we made are not record. So there are a lot of songs Right now i think my favorite song is what will it might have to favorite okay on this latest record. There's a song called problem child and it it's about it kind of has a little bit of a twist about being a problem child. It's about feeling totally alone is. It's a deep song totally alone like nobody can ever imagine. How what you're going through how you're feeling but we've all been problem children. We've we've all been that person before where we're we're the ones that fill lonely and It it's just. It's my favorite favorite but then also on that same record. I really love Nearing why you. And that's our single out. That's not out right now. But that's so much fun. What are the problems in twenty twenty in the last few years is people only hear the singles you release yes or if you go to spotify you only see the top five but if people will sit and listen tonight nightfall all the way through or listen to any of your albums all the way through you get such a variety like songs like problem child and why beer and whiskey we know boondocks. We know A girl crush your friends. Can we talk about how dumb people were about. Go girl crush right at first. Are you talking about that. Yes we can talk about that you know what any that hurt my feeling about it really did. I was like come on. Just listen to the words for just a second and don't take it quite so seriously and everybody's been in this state. Everybody has been the girl left behind. Everybody has felt that type of jealousy. It's kinda like attornal. Joe lean dolly parton. But yeah i really when when we got word that we were getting some pushback on that record as like that. I'm her that really hurts. Because you wanna be at one of my whereabouts about any graham. What am i biggest problems as any room. Seven as i hate being misunderstood that whole experience. I was like y'all just or misunderstand. What the song actually says exactly rat. Oh my goodness okay. Let's talk about eighty so what you are new to them. I'm very new. I'm new you introduce me to any to the graham. Well all my friends are talking about it. They're all like. Oh i'm at three. I'm a four year. Seventy and i'm like i feel left out. Yes i had to start learning. And so i i did. I learned about it from you. I started learning about it from you and listening to your podcast. And so and then. I've listened to morrison i'm trying to i'm reading about it. I'm trying to figure out. I'm ninety nine percent. Sure i'm an-and okay. 'cause i really have trouble when people aren't getting along and there's conflict and somebody's upset about somethin' and i really liked coziness instead. Here's my one question about the non. I don't ever i don't ever sit down. I don't ever like. I don't ever slop out a never. I've always up going doing doing doing doing so. Does that mean. I'm not a non no. I think you could totally be a nine now. I'm not expert. But i do love talking about it but i know a lot of nine. Who are really active and do a lot of things and the sloth can appear like not responding to texts or digging digging your heels in about something and back so being a little more stubborn about something and the sloth can appear emotionally as much as anything where you're like. I'm just not i can't. I'm not going to deal with that. I can't deal with that. Because i've got these so we're gonna do this this and this instead. It doesn't have to be laying on the couch. Okay good then. I think that a now i'm one hundred percent of one of my favorite is is a tour made jury. He never stops but yeah ok he has. He has found ways to sloth in other ways. I can sometimes not answer my email. Yes yes there are things. Yeah there are things that get that out so there are just some people who that's their personality to not. Do you know to not do things so right. But i would totally believe you're nine. Do you know what your other inmates ours. Your has everybody else in little. Big town talked about yet. Karen is an eight cairns and eight and jimmy is a four and. We're still trying to figure out philip. I feel philip. Is our our consummate dreamer. I mean he always fans the good always. We're like our song is at forty one. But it's still it's still heading towards number one fifty that's always always. I don't know what he is yet. Yeah okay well. It's i mean it'll teach you a lot especially even like you care in or or their marriage or philip as like having that just in the back of your mind you don't and it's so much more about motivation than actual behavior. 'cause every we can if you know there's another let's in terrible world. We get locked down again. We all make. We may all do the same behavior at the grocery store. We have nine different reasons. We do it right. But i would be interested to know what he is as well. It's fun to now. I mean people who are on the road we have. It matters to me that we all kinda speak that language. Yes it's so fun. And i think it's so good for relationships. Marriages working relationships friendships children. Yeah i know that you really hard to tell what a child is. As far as i understand. But i'm almost positive. My daisy is a seven. yeah a she's got all the qualities that category two okay. Let's talk one more quick minute about christmas and then we'll be done for today. But what do you cook at christmas that we need to. That's in your cookbook traditions. That we need to know about. We go real traditional at christmas. We you know turkey dress in ham. Are you addressing girl. You have to be addressing girl from georgia that's right you know. It's my grandmother's recipe. Only one of our sisters of the three of us learned from my grandmother how to make it she only taught one of us and so the other one makes it every week. But it's an art art.

Mt. Rushmore of High School Regrets

"Greetings and welcome to the Mount Rushmore podcast. My Name Is Jeff and I'm joined by my good buddies. Richard. Loe and my good buddy Michael. Howdy. Richard Michael like the debate and deliberate them out rushmore of many different topics and this week we're getting kind of emotional or going back in time a little bit too heady days of high school and Mount Rushmore. Highschool regrets is what we're discussing Richard. This was your choice. What's your angle where you're going? I don't even know where I'm going with this. I just. I just know that I've been seeing more high school friends on facebook lately. Maybe think we all have been kind of maybe catching up with people that we have not had contact with in a while facing because God knows you can't have real contact with with other people. Started just been thinking about highschool a lot lately Lena's got me thinking about a couple of things that are like man I wish I in hindsight. I wish I could go back and do that differently. reboot on that. What is it Why is high school the like? I know you were you're a young graduate of high school and then you went up. Okay I skipped my senior year. Yeah. I. Think A lot. You are not alone in Stahl for that era for examining the successes or the ways in which our lives after high school don't necessarily live up to maybe early promise and also not alone. In. thinking. It's a time when you almost kind of felt like you were an adult but maybe you didn't. Do the most adult things or do they make all the best choices right? No, it's. It's probably the last time where you really didn't have to deal with any personal responsibility. Yeah. So you could you could make an immature idiots and still get away with it. Looking back on some of those things are like. Really. Yeah second pull that one back you know it almost feels like other outside of the world of. The Bruce Springsteen. Where things were high school almost lived in this world of perfection where right everything was going right back then. Even when we are doing everything, wrong yeah. I mean don't get me wrong I actually for the most part had a very good high school experiences. So. Thank God because I was really excited to hear the smallest of regrets from you. After the last four and a half years of bragging on the spot so. Yeah I'm glad you'RE NOT GONNA get like two to wistful remorseful. ERA, keeping at one hundred. Yeah I decided to not drink this episode. Safe. Winfield US is Richard chose the subject. Okay I guess in a Lotta ways. The way that Richard describe this kind of reconnecting with old friends and I've been kind of working on this just big project that both of you guys know about this big photo scanning project. I did it with like. With, kickball stuff from the decade of kickball that we played and collected this huge just. You know this huge cache of just pictures and then I started scanning old family pictures like just scanning them, dating them in Google photos and organizing them in them and trying to get as accurate as possible, and then I got like. I realized that my high school yearbook had one picture of me and it's the official. High School Senior Year photo in I'm not in that book in any. Other way. I think that I think that spoke to me in terms of. How anti-social I was I wasn't in any extracurricular activities I wasn't Didn't play music wasn't I wasn't even like, I don't know what key club is. Oh Yeah wasn't and I wasn't in it. I didn't do any sort of like. STU DEBATE CLUB I didn't do wasn't like. Here's sure you guys didn't have like an art club or something. Oh. We'll. We'll get to art later. Okay. You're. My regrets about later but were in junior rotc assembling and disassembling a rental blindfolded the whole four years. I just I I was so. I. Don't know purposefully or just in my own head I was just antisocial network I had. A big group of friends that I hung out with but I didn't. Translating that to like Oh, this is going to help you in life in terms of building other bonds or being part of a group or a team or like these are things that get you into college. that. Just none of that. Was In my field of you and like so looking back through like my senior High School Yearbook One picture of me. Like no other picture of me just like. In the background in the quad. Being there. Is Blank slate and it's just it's a very strange thing because like. You know, my wife Emily was prom queen like twice she was involved in like track and she's just a very social person I can look through her yearbook and. I can't remember we must have at some point, but I'm sure she's all over that and like I don't know it's just one of these things where you know I, know how this Google photos You know fortress built a sixty thousand photos practically. And it's like. Oh Yeah but my yearbook I'd like none. So. That's a regret I should've I should've done been more social at least in. The FO- setting. In class something oath do you mean more? Clubs and activities or actually. As A. Pretense for. Interaction. Or I think I think that. You know it would have been nice to look back and be like Oh. Yeah. I I had those memories of Just being in some club just being just being involved in some other worthwhile thing that you're investing your time in that isn't them? You know watching. Batman. After. School. Or whatever? Michael, I've got a question not to get too deep into this, but let's go. Do you think that the your lack of activities and clubs and things like that kind of leads you to be more of a take a leadership role and things like creating pizza club and being Mr Kickball for a decade? I think that a couple of things I think. Maybe maybe there is like all this built up actual Connective Person Sword. Thing inside me that was there or could have been I was like initially just really trying to get over like a separation and divorce. And like I just had to fill the fill the hours or something. And then you just you know it's like finding Jesus. It's like you're at these like super low moments in these things pop into your life in its. Plan kickball. Staying out late eating pizza. All Right? Yeah I don't know. I was thinking about how social media is. Identified as being end and and platforms liked. INSTAGRAM facebook. Less so but now TIKTOK are burgeoning. Photo repositories for young people and. People make critical comments about kids plastering the the world with images of themselves but. God for four years of my own I average maybe one or two photos per per yearbook but. My parents weren't taken any damn photos of me so. That's all I have photos for four years. So that's probably a good thing, right? You are definitely in a different 'cause I. Think you look back at old photos and. You start having the memories of a very specific photo. And when you take you know. One hundred photos a day. It all becomes a blur like do go back. I have I don't necessarily go back and look at. Pictures I've taken recently. It's like look pictures that were taken fifteen twenty years ago. Yeah. Okay men Freddie, laid on us. All right so much first one is. Maybe it's it's not necessarily related to Michael's, but I think it's in the same area. I wish I would have gone to parties when I was in high school. Is, I did not go to parties because I had no interest in hanging out with the kids who partied. So to speak turns out that was like half the school. That went to parties, and so it's it's not on my list Richard I'm going to piggyback I'm Trick Jeff into giving me half credit I was I've never went to a single-party either. Never invited to a party was never like whatever parties that appear in. Movies from the nineteen eighties they those are they are as foreign as the CANTINA. Dens ENC. Right and and partially for me because I didn't drink when I was in high school. and. I don't really regret not drinking and high school kind of specifically is not a regret. But I. Think the fact that the reason I didn't go to parties was because I had this idea in my head that the the group's winter parties were kind of batted. and. Weren't necessarily up to my high standards so to speak. Right. Which is which is just dumb. Because, it's like you go to the unions you end up hanging out with these people you now they're just. They were just dokes gone through high school like I was and some of them were really cool and some of them weren't and guess what you find out ten years later, some of your friends from high school were really cool. Turned out really cool and some of them didn't. That's just Kinda. The way it works out. I don't know I probably would have been I. think it's it's a big part of a bigger issue of being less judgmental when I was in high school. But I think it manifested itself in the fact that I didn't. I didn't go to parties we had. You can hang out at the trees which were as grove of trees that were not in the middle of nowhere and everyone party thereafter, the football games on Friday nights or a good good name the trees, the other one was well, the other one was in the ditch. Literal. The Hill on the mound. Yeah when you're in, Michael, when you're a small town. You don't need. You don't need to be descriptive. There's only so many ditches. But I never went to those things and I got invited you know. And I think I. Think I missed I feel like I'm fundamentally out on something. Highschool. By kind of segregating myself from that experience. Sure Yeah not saying it would have gone every week but. Every once in awhile wouldn't have her top into making the fjords. Those years you find yourself rapidly changing our I know. I did within a given a week I might have been three different. ASPIRATIONAL. Personas or something like that. And I think sophomore year was the first year of our high school. It was a three year high school sophomore year I was. Looking down my nose at people consuming alcohol by senior year I. Could not get enough of the stuff so. Maybe. That's something we're missing my senior year. Maybe if I would have been a senior would have relaxed a little bit more and not been such a judgmental jerk about other people that could have probably probably not. But maybe. So else is. Judgment. Going to be. Separate. Thing. Is I. Think it's all wrapped up. It's all part and parcel of the same thing you know. I think. I was overly judgmental of of other people and I let that cloud how I perceived. Things like into parties. And then but partially was just because you know it's scary to get outside of your. Comfort Zone, which is a whole separate thing that we will get into later on in this episode. All right. Okay Winfield what's your second one? my second one was Thinking, I was real. Real special. Kid. who was into like Simpson's and comic books and Star Wars like that was I think those are the three big things I was into it. That was my thing. I was no one else was into these things and then. Later. Realizing that that was. Really, the least special aspect that one could be interior. That that the giant. Mega culture that was all bought by Disney basically owns the simpsons, comic books and Star Wars. All just one huge GLOB of thing that every other forty year old. person is into in some way. Did Disney owns your your childhood. We're high for life basically, he will now they do. Already time? Are you re reading? The Not reaching out to share that with other people at that time or you regretting in hindsight that. A draconian entertainment company has purchased all of things. No not really either I I. I was never the kid that would go to like the local comic bookstore and like. Talk with the other nerds about comics I I didn't like didn't like actually talking to those other nerds about comics and other things I didn't need to share my opinion about what I thought. Spiderman was GONNA do I for whatever reason I like? I liked it when it was within my Comfort of like my two friends like Eric you know neither friend. Romeo who those that you guys that weren't like comics that I. Could talk to her would want to talk to you about it but like I never had like the. That aspect of needing to share that I think it was just you know it's regret looking back and being is that all you really thought there was. When you could have. been so much more expansive in the things that you're into. Like and to to think that those three things specifically were like. signifier of your own identity when it's like a be something other than. A cartoon. cartoonish space, opera and You know printed Carter's. Whatever I you know I hit a perfect. Bullseye on the in the nerds score. So yeah, it still received culture mass culture, but use had the sense of uniqueness the snowflake. Infield was part of a adrift that was going. You didn't even know about. I think also to once the Internet kind of developed. Like that was it like when you're the only person, you can feel special about it but then you realize you get on the Internet in this is what ninety six Ninety five, you know in the mid nineties to late nineties and internet kind of takes off and. Then you're in college in your life. Oh. Everybody's into this sort of thing every. That's weird yeah. It's a very, it's a very, it's a very humbling. Thing that I was just more expensive. You one point seems. Like? Maybe. Maybe, working in many of these observations who the fuck that I think. I was What what? What made me? Take on this identity that was. Put up a barrier between myself and all the other unique. vulnerable weird children. You know people who are just trying to make their way through. Through and just having fun as they could and or just. Not Get picked on her. Who who the heck I think I was. Well, I think it's an element of if you kind of have your things. And you hold onto them and you are those your independent, your independent worlds. Then you can be the one who's kind of in control of it. And a lot of high school, you feel like you're not in control of things. But. If you're it also, if you can signify yourself as oh I'm comic Book Guy Or Star Wars Guy. INSERTED MAKES IT easier to deal with possibility that people might reject you. Yeah That's One possession guys, this is good. Therapy thing. It's all things one long. Listening by the way system big therapy session. One thing result Res Regret as an adult is that none of it means anything anymore like vic? Culture the culture you consume. Used to be your identity. Now it's like who cares it does. It used to be like you know like music was a big part of my identity. And it was like we didn't have spotify or youtube or ways to be able to consume basically any song at any time. So if you know the new matthew, sweet album came out. In you're the first one to get it suddenly you were you're the one who is not shutting up about how good this was. You're the one trying to convince your friends here make a copy of the tape for you because it's It's amazing and so you got to be sort of the. Evangelist. For, the things that you thought were cool and you don't really get to do that as much anymore because. Everyone has access to everything. Every all pop culture so Readily available. And it kind of. Broadcast from the satellite and it lands and everybody's. Inbox at the same time. So yeah, exactly. Yeah. All right man Freddie what are you got speaking of music? I wish I had started a band or something. Like, really actually tried to start a. I I did a few I. Did it with a few sort of halting steps throughout the years in high school right I would find a few people who played for instance at yeah. We should get a band together. Even had a couple of practices with some guys once. And it just never worked for whatever reason. Now, I did jazz band in high school. Now did not for all three years that I was in school. That was fun. But there is something. Let's be honest. Jazz ban does not get the the girls hearts twitter. Jazz, Jazz, not the the the panty dropper that A. Rock band is. So to speak and. I don't know I just. You know. Now I play guitar a back then played Bass Guitar now I generally, what is just regular Guitar Guitar. And I write songs I didn't really write songs back. Then now I write songs but being forty four years old in your bedroom writing songs and trying to record them on your computer. It's a little bit. It feels a little. Lost Causes. And it does feel a little bit like I'm trying to recapture. What I should have been doing when I was seventeen eighteen years old. You know. Being in a band is such a a young person's thing like it would be really strange by decided. Oh I'm GonNa get a band together. At forty four that would just feel. Out of place but that's that's very much a young person's. It feels indulgent. It feels like kids stuff. Yeah feel just feels like you're attempting to recapture D- attempting to recapture some sort of moment or recreate something that never really. Yeah. You know that's when I find my mouse hovering over the leather, the black leather jacket and a catalog and. Go Fuck Yourself. You don't. Nobody's can think you're cool. If you wear this ever thought I, had that exact same conversation with myself about a about getting Jean Jacket. Last year year and a half. Really. Interested in getting Jean Jacket 'cause. But then part of me was like, are you just getting one because you want it to be two thousand three again because he thought strokes were cool. Yeah. It's two thousand twenty, and maybe we should get over the already. In in two thousand, eighteen for my fortieth birthday my wife got me to Jean Jacket because she loves me. Because the exact same person because he's wearing jeans jacket in two, thousand, three, two, thousand four and it was fucking bad ass. Southern Richard What. Looks Great. Jacket looks. Amazing. and. Look like a forty year old member of the strokes. which they are what they are nowadays. Yeah. Just like a member of the strokes. Exactly I am. Long Hair hasn't about the opinions of appears that's one thing but I. I don't think a younger person looks at old guy with Jean Jacket, who does the Hanky as he thinks? That since he was probably old-timer. Dudes we're at halftime. Audience if you're listening to this, we don't always have midlife crisis conversations like this. We don't always Moan and Groan about. Opportunities Miss or errors gone by sometimes. We. Talk about the most. Immaterial. Pop culture things that have no consequences. Whether. We deliberate them or not. Sometimes we talked about. Very. World's impacting topics like what's the best cereal or? Which branch of the military. Cap'n crunch really in a bogus pass oats to to. Go back to the archives in listen to more than just like cereal related like those to Jeff mentioned. The Range? Between cereal. The cereal, Mascot Yeah. We go all the way from bits two. Sub Zero that starts. Do Go back and listen to episode if you find one you like shirt and if you have an idea as to. Tackle let us know. We'd love to it. If you have guests gestion beep yourself. Cuba's. Give us a ring maybe we could get together and. Chat about the topic that you are chat about this has been the best halftime read. But now, I'm going to jump back into jump back into it with Winfield for third choice. My third choice. Well, this kind of piggybacks on choice number two a little bit. It's at least it's something goes hand in hand and I had no real. Prep for studying art in college in high school. Like I knew that I loved comic books and I wanted to draw comics when I got older and I'd like to draw and I discovered I could draw the same sort of. spider-man's standing in the same pose. Three quarter pose looks decent and then I could do the same thing with Batman same three quarter pose looking. Decent and then you know. On and on but then I, didn't really. Make the effort to. Study how to draw how to make art? I. Took like a couple of like high school art classes but those were all like. Can you paint this perspective thing with you know a ruler and draw ball or paint a ball and? In space and all these. Were the. These the can you draw turtle things on the matchbooks that they used to advertise. So. Also got into, I also didn't get into trucking school because they didn't do the goodson truck school. Exam that way to through dental through. There was like an anatomy class like a life drawing. A basic high school art class that was it. I, didn't have any sort of like. I didn't study the history of our. I didn't have any. Goto like life drawing. You know have books on how to draw or how to study your techniques I didn't like I had like the very classic like how to draw comics the Marble Way Oh just like a book yeah it's a very classic book from the Lakers Trying to order that and they'd never get it to be dome. It's like it's perfect book and it just like you know. Narrated by like Stanley, and he's like you gotTa Make Galactic. Citing. Dynamic and Really just a bunch of boxes. Read Richard should be six heads high and all that nonsense. That was it. That's what I went to school prepped for like by the time I was taking like art history classes and in a class where you're painting with oil paints I didn't know how to mix paint I didn't know. How To? You know. All the different things kind of started give you tips on but kind of also expects you to have some sort of. Talent inclination and have made actual efforts beforehand like if you're going to like. Major in I don't know. History or psychology or Something else like you can pick it up. You don't have to have that deeper history. I would say, English, or like literature is kind of one of the few things like helps to. Read more than three books. Going in. But Gossiping. Thousand English. Major I can. I can end someone who really only read about three books in high school. I can concur with you that I was woefully unprepared. For the academic life of College Whoa. An art art in college is based. At. Some point like. I can't remember I think it was my Not Sophomore. Junior. Year. And this Guy Kinda just rolled in to this art class. Like he's he had like a van and he just had these huge like wall size. Paintings and here's just. It was this amazing thing that was all color and form. Shape and interesting things going on and it's like I'm. I'M PAINTING A. Still Life of a skull was plastic scroll. It was in a thing or like a robot it was just like. Who? I was so disappointed in my. Age Fourteen to eighteen year old self. For like you could have made an effort buddy. You think if it were music. You weren't. You weren't paying you're playing the. Ski. Deals. And you weren't out there learning to improvise. Aren't doing the fundamental kind of things. Do you think you should? Yeah for sure I should I think I think it all came down to like. You know kind of boxed in with ideas going into draw comic book. So I'll just all you need to do is. Draw comic books but when you're trying to get like an art studio degree. You actually have to like. Make art it isn't You know one superhero punching another superhero. And that's just like Oh that was depressing. So I. You know I'm GONNA go back and kick myself you. You have that conversation with yourself. It'd be like you know. I'm you from twenty five years in the future. Stop. Breathing the shitty rub life old comic also hate you're you're actively hating it right now you know you are, but you're buying it go. Go to a museum and look at something. That's different. You know I found. It. Fascinating that one is introduced to the. Out Outside of the art. Like everybody. Everybody I know who wanted to be a musician in school wanted to play lead guitar and sing in a band. They didn't want to be a music producer. Nobody wants to be the Bass player. Jeff is yeah. Bass player. Everybody who wants to play baseball doesn't end up on on the diamond the. There you can be in the ballpark. Lake it sounds like. Richard have a little bit of regret in regarding. Your participation. In this thing, love being stunted a little bit by kind of not going for it as far as you'd like to. At least that you can look back in high school and say why I tried or a reassure. Did that thing take taking chances is definitely like I was very even today very even keeled person I'm not quick to anger I'm not quick to. Do Anything Super Dangerous. It's like I don't know. I don't know I. I think as you said Richard said. At during kind of the preamble like. You know you're young enough to make mistakes and it not. Affect you all that much. If they're not to do matt and I don't think I was I it even attempted to make mistakes. My brother was all those amazing things. He was Varsity basketball player track, and Field Star Drummer, in a rock band he was the guy women would just kind of throw themselves at like our phone would. Would not stop ringing. He's women that wanted to talk to him women who I saw and just like ogled, he could be bothered to. Stop playing his drums to talk to Chelsea on the phone. It was crazy. It how? All those things that I look back and think of this person as this. PROTEAN. Cool. Dude in school he was all those things. But. It's like his he had no mirror to reflect upon anybody else who was that kid? Might unknown. He was hot shit. My brother couldn't have cared less that he was all these amazing things and that's probably why he was hops shit was because he didn't he didn't the effort into carrying. That could have been rejected project something tried to project coolness something you either in high school I think especially either you have or you don't Yeah Oh. Yeah. So Richard Do you do yours in Tabart. Okay. Right. Now, I'll do my I do my neck so it's kind of. Look I. Think we're kind of tiptoeing around a lot of the same. Minefields here. And I started to put down. Started to write down for this one, I should have dated more. But I think what I really meant was I should have been I wish I had been less afraid of rejection. In High School? Because that's specifically why I didn't date quote unquote I had one girlfriend like my last. Six months when I was. In High School. And other than that I had. Looking back on it I I always look back and go I. Probably Could've dated her I bet she would have gotten out on a date with me maybe I don't know. But I was. So the idea of someone saying no to me if I asked him out on hey do you wanna go see movies sometime next week Idea that someone would say, no to me the potential humiliation that would cause in my mind. So much that I just it just pump the brakes on meet evert attempting anything like that. And you look back on it it's just dumb. It's just like, okay. So if you if they would've said, no just. Wanted to somebody else. No that's that's. From what I hear that's dating works in the real world not that I would. Again, not that I would I would particularly no but this is how I understand that it works. Yeah. So this That is one thing that my father did not give me kind of a perspective about my stepfather. Did he just literally said it's just the odds you just ask. It could be ten to one twenty to one. Ask about eight. That's Mike Mike Damone from. Time on High Jaffrey GonNa try and sell me cheap trick tickets. That is the the fear that we all encounter of. Of Rejection it's funny because you you're in your most indestructible state that you'll be in your life. Yeah exactly. It's the time when you should be going, hey, you WANNA go out. No. Okay. Whatever matter the stakes are so low. And for me at least as a high schooler, any girl that I had a crush on was automatically going to be the love of my life or something simple. Like that instead of just being like, oh, she's Kinda cute and we get we know she's funny or whatever. Maybe we should go out on a movie and just. Hang out. With that be cool. I. Try to recall that. I remember. In. College I did a summer play with some actors who were professional actors. and. Myself. In the other students we're talking about auditioning and we hope we get this part we help we get this thing and they were saying, what's the big deal you get it? You don't what's the big deal and the truth was at the time if you were cast as the lead in the play you and now the cast net, you're now the lead in life, you're the lead in every social circle you were if you were handed on stage. Every party you went to your hamlet you're the Rockstar you're the guy and I remember. Sometimes that discount the social structure of school being so rigid and and. Conformed as it is so that we're you to experience with rejection with an individual it's not like it just ends there. Some. The, Gym Coach Asks You. What what it was like have Cindy Lewis turn you down the. Goes around the school so. There are some people, but there are some people who are willing to who just don't have that in highschool even who didn't have that that team to to give a shit about it yeah. You know like, I would imagine your brother with somebody. From. What it sounds like would be somebody who wouldn't have got hung up on something like that I would say, academically I, sure didn't give a shit like Kinda. Right. It was amazing. How blase wasn't that? So. Yeah. kind of rolling the romantic dice a little bit more. Socially, just being eating being a little looser spend much. and. Having such a stick up about about. Boy I how I really feel that way too and I wasn't like I was a goody goody 'cause they're sure was a lot of stuff I was screwing up at. But. Some dudes who I wouldn't even. Like. It's hard to even imagine that somebody from University of Kansas would be like a surfer bro kind of like it is what it is. Bro You know kind of guys like that. Annoyed the Shit Outta me and it always seemed like those people were disappointing me Hey, will you you didn't do the thing you said you're going to do at the party that we all organized or I should I should have learned to just say. Just everybody's find. Expecting so much of people when you yourself are letting so many people down all the time. Or? Winfield. Well all end on The. Avenue of love as well. Because doesn't it? If we're about high school, there's not like. It's hard not to think of. Some sort of relationship thing that happened. That wasn't somewhat regretful and my too. I didn't date at all. I didn't ask anybody I was. Not, ready for it. I was too scared at the prospect I don't know if it was scared it rejection per se but just like that whole thing was just so foreign to me. I liked girls I. Thought they were very attractive I liked very specific ones like we all do but like I just. I didn't have it in me to go ask somebody out. And one. Time. When I was sixteen, I think. a girl asked me out. And it was like a amazing. And, of course, I said no, because I'm a stupid moron. It was wasn't the girl yourself it was actually her sister who called me up it was very you know it's very strange to get phone calls anyway. from a girl and it was like her sister and she. Calls and says, Hey, you know No I'm. Gohar sister and you know she really. She wanted to know if you wanted to. Go out on a date some time and I remember just sitting there and be like. Oh. Yeah I. Know I don't think so or something as like. Heart wrenching, awful and ridiculous and insulting and likes to it was just like one of the things are just like what what are you doing I remember immediately thinking like Oh. No. I should call caller back and say, yes but I didn't and it was like one of those things that was just like. You know. Obviously liked me I liked her. I thought she was cute and I thought she. was like we had like A. Spanish class together and. We were like in like a group. You know it's like. Well, you know this is the thing when someone likes you but still your dislike, I don't know what to do. I don't know how to do. So No. Instead of like Richard talked about like taking chances and all the stuff is just like it's right on the right of I know. Seer. Seer tomorrow awkwardly in Class I guess. It's like what you said it's like. You can set you can say, yes sir no to somebody. But you're stuck back into that pool was like Oh, my God, how frightening is at? I dumped choice when whenever I. Think. Because my My Hobby. is, looking back on life and cringing past actions. That's fulltime. What do all the time? and. I do it to prevent myself from sleeping at night, which is you don't need sleep new needs over rated yeah. Yeah. I. Would ever there's a moment where I think I could have extended more of kindness to somebody or returned. Or gone on a date with somebody who I think liked me. I saved them from the worst six months of their lives. By fumbling the offer of affection from a decent person who probably had a lot in common with I saved them. For me to call them now and to say, Hey, you're awesome person and I really missed out would be a lot better than giving them the dude that they would have gone back then because. He was just a dumb ass. Of F-, Fo-. befuddle them even more. I would would liked I would like sixteen year old Jeff. He was. Not Not would have not talked to sixteen year old Richard. Probably. Their points. Okay. Twenty six, thirty, six, year old Richard. Thirty, six year old Richard. Thank you so much for thinking that. Wow. Last one is. I was editor of the high. School newspaper. Mr. Mr New York Times over here. and was a tradition. Your last your last edition of the paper that whoever as editor before as you're graduating, you wrote of farewell column. And everyone when it was my turn to do mine I went back and read some of the ones from the last few editors before me would back into the archives. And it was all very much the. Everything you would hear like in a stock. Valedictorian speech. How much how grateful they were for the opportunity you know how much they loved, how much they love you to teachers meant to them and how great how they're always remember the kids. And I just thought. I can't do that because I was cool punk rock guy. and. There is no way that I could write something like that. So instead. I just wanted in score scorched earth you guys. I I wrote this like. You know there were some there were some teachers who were great that really listen to their kids but most of the teachers. Didn't seem to care lesson I really didn't care less about pre serious. They leave this they let me print this they let me let me have my own rope and hang myself with it so to speak. And it was just it was. It was salting the earth sort of us. Oh, it was. It was what every pretentious thinks that they're better than everyone else seventeen year old bright as a fuck you on the way out the door to to the big city. And Yeah turns out. I heard some feelings by doing that. So maybe I shouldn't have. Gone back to your Like your ten year or twenty year high school reunion or anything. Yeah, I did I went to both of them and. Ten year tenure was really awkward like really, Awkward. Because there were I still had some. X. Friends of mine from high school who were who would just it the whole time bitching about how awful and Shitty Los Angeles was and have possibly lived there. And feeling like. Them to go live in Los. Angeles while they were still stuck in in small. Town California. Twenty year was great. Everyone had moved on by the twenty year and that's one of the things you realize at some point it's. Ever gets the stuff I'm willing to bet ninety five percents ninety, Ninety, eight percent of the. Kids, I went to high school with, don't even remember that I were discolored. But at the time, it felt like a big deal I had I had some people come up and say, wow, I'm so glad you said that that's totally what I feel about this town fuck this way started out the. So it was, it was it was definitely met with a mixed reception. What's put it that way Do do you. Have a copy of I. Wish I did know I thought about trying to go back in I thought I had a copy of all my old newspapers but when my? After my family lasts up on my brother passed away, they moved out of the Family House. Can find it anywhere so very disappointed. I wished I had a copy. If I ever did find a copy I, will I will put it up on our show boats was it who? Outside of his his actual humor. Steve Martin's play writing. I'm not the biggest fan of but. I forget what? Is it shop girl or something talked about like white lies versus. A white lies like you know a lie to hide a painful truth and a black lies like A. Truth that You, really just due to hurt somebody you know yeah. I. Felt like well, it felt like that I think I thought I was Christian slater from pump up the volume. Yeah. If I could if I could identify one person who I thought I was in high school. That's who I thought. I was and I thought that I was speaking powered truth to power and really I was just being a self. Arrogant asshole seven year old. But you know again when you're seventeen, you don't you don't really know the difference. You just sort of know this persona that you've created for yourself. and. I. Think it falls into the larger category of just trying too hard. Trying to trying too hard to be this persona you've created for yourself because that's what's comfortable for you. Yeah. This was like the logical like last step in the evolution will you also fifteen when you left high school, right? So I was. Seventeen you'll like as soon as my mom gets her to pick me up I'm out of here. Yeah exactly. It was like I'm a he one. Thing you have in new seventeen, eighteen years is. A. Point of view. But You don't really have an understanding of reality yet you haven't paid a mortgage you might not have made a car payment or. been. Dumped by somebody who you truly thought you were in love with there's no, there's no. There's no suffering truly you. You might have thought you suffered. Me and might have thought you had heartbreak. and. So one's opinions. When listen to by say the CUSTODIAN OF THAT SCHOOL Or? The principal of the thirty year veteran. Calculus teacher. You're just gonNa tell they shut the fuck up you don't. Know anything. Right. No it's exactly. Yeah. Yeah. If I could go if I could go back and talk to my seventeen year old self, every made message would be just get over yourself. Were anything else. I imagine those teachers like where do you even go back to the journalism teacher or? The. Principal or whatever. As soon as you walked in that, go, you're here to apologize. Yeah I'd love to say I would imagine that would be. English teacher is one of the ones I got along with. So I think I was okay with them. We're good right. We're we're right. Remember that thing labor they should on everybody on my way out the door we're the right. I. I look back on this guy and I. I would want to. Realize that he is the product of all the things.
