Slate launches daily news podcast 'What Next'
Visit https://podnews.net/update/what-next-launch for all the links, and to subscribe. Google Podcasts now supports formatting and links in podcast show notes. They still don't look great, but it's a good step in the right direction. We've also spotted that Google Podcasts is now fully supported in Android Auto. In the works (finally) are automatic podcast downloads, and a way of seeing which version of the player you're running. To ensure your podcast works on Google Home and Google Assistant, the key is to make sure you're in Google Podcasts. (The player, though not the app, is pre-installed in every Android phone since 4.1.) Here's our FAQ of what it is and how to get there. Don't be confused - Google Play Music Podcasts is totally unrelated. (Yes, we know.) In a letter to investors, Apple had to revise their earning guidance, downward. An illuminating article from MG Siegler points out the themes in the letter: China, yes, but also fewer people are upgrading their iPhones, perhaps they're too expensive, and Apple's future income lies in "services" rather than hardware. (We'd note that the total direct podcasting income for Apple since launch in 2005 has been exactly $0.)

Meanwhile, Amazon has not-so-quietly revealed that they've sold 100 million Alexa devices. (Google Assistant, however, is installed in many more.) Pocket Casts have said that they plan to allow users of Wear OS smartwatches to save podcasts on their watch (and therefore enable jogging with podcasts, and no phone). How much of the internet is fake? Quite a lot, actually - according to the New York Magazine. "For a period of time in 2013 a full half of YouTube traffic was “bots masquerading as people,” a portion so high that employees feared an inflection point after which YouTube’s systems for detecting fraudulent traffic would begin to regard bot traffic as real and human traffic as fake." Are there questions about podcast dowloads? Dane Cardiel from Simplecast is "working closely with Dan and Jared on an initiative collecting input from podcasters of colour for the 2nd Annual Podcasters of Colour Networking Event at Podcast Movement 2019." If you're a podcaster of colour interested in participating in discussions later this month, here's a form to fill in. A reminder that Apple is aggressively removing podcasts from their catalogue (and therefore from most other podcast apps) if your name or author is considered "spammy". "Podnews: podcasting news with a global viewpoint focusing on podcasting and on-demand audio production" is spammy. "Podnews podcasting news" isn't. "This is a post about editing radio, not in the small way of removing ums but the big way, like when you have an hour of audio that you need to edit down to 28 minutes, or when you are selecting 30 second soundbites to include in your story" - from Philosophies of Editing for Radio, a piece which is about audio editing (whether for radio or for podcasting).

This is a head gum podcast. Hello. And welcome to the complete guide everything podcast about everything. I'm one of your Tom, and I'm Tim how're you doing this week? Tim, tom. I'm not sure if you've noticed this. I'm giddy. Yeah. I've been giddy for a full week. Why why is that I haven't seen you? We've both been out of town like two ships in the night cry well to airplanes. Yeah. Well, I guess yeah. Maybe we pass an airplane's, but we were not in New York together for for a while now for at least a year or two. Yeah. We've been doing this thing really underplayed how how much we Bank episodes. I would like to Bank of episodes. I would forget how to do this head of talk. Yeah. Well, Tim, I make it look easy. By is not yet, Tom. We'll talk about Las Vegas in few minutes. All you, all you Vegas fiends that that downloaded this episode. They're like Yay. Tips. Let's talk about the bunny ranch. That's where you went somewhere. I went him. No. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I went to dog. Why would I need a rabbit? I thought you were going to be like I have a Doug. Why would I need to? Have sex with the prostitute. Anyway, I went to los-angeles, oh, not last Vegas. Tom in whatever L fun. I like it. That's why you like LA. He likes it. Yeah. Tom. I lived at dream. It was a dream. It felt like a dream. All right. I went inside my favorite TV show. How inside the television? I felt like. Do you know, you kind of share this with me? But not as deeply as I I love America's funniest home videos it by far my favorite television show in history. Where would you put it on the scale of all entertainment like are there any books or movies that you like more music? I don't think so. It gets bum rap Tom because like everybody's like like dusty did by always going up on top of the refrigerator referencing very obscure, America's video obscure gets pigeonholed as kind of lowbrow just a bunch of guys getting hit. Yeah. And like it's a lot of that. Great to you see that. But it's it's all types of humor. It runs the gamut from like some of it's pretty mean spirited some people that like if they fell like a little bit differently. Like, it would be a tragedy instead of folk video, right? But like. That's that's celebrating life. Yeah. And it's dogs doing cute stuff and cats doing cute stuff and babies doing cute stuff and people experiencing joy and said miss and heartbreak and everything give run the gamut. You see you see these little slices a life. It's it's it's it's incredible. And like, look if you don't like a video or a segment even slits. Slits there. Look, I love it. I think more people should watch it. It's a bum. Bum rap Timur. Timur? If it's unfair what they've done. It used to be hosted by Tom Birger on the greatest man who's ever lived now hosted by Carlton from the fresh prince of Bel-Air, he Tom I wasn't like look it's hard to hold a candle to the birds. Right. Yeah. And and Tom burns. I was not the first host. No, Bob, zag it. And then a lot of people forget that John futile saying daisy, Flint is yeah. Talk me up with people who forget that. Exactly. So, you know, it's it's also America's funniest people for that was bullshit. Garbage. Look that was crap. What was what differentiated America's funniest people America's funniest home videos with stuff caught on tape? Advent of people. In their in their home pronounce camp quarters, by the way, camcoders camp coders one of them their camp coders. And America's funniest people. Like, they'd go to malls and stuff where people would set up the the video camera and be like. Richard nixon. Brooke right, or like or the one thing. I remember with these two portly gentleman that. Lifted up their shirts, and they had like their nipples became the eyes and they painted like a used rolls their their their fat rules to make it look like they were singing Elvis songs or something. Pretty good. To get back. It's just not so American as people is videos of people trying to be funny on purpose. Whereas America's funniest videos is sometimes you will get a video of somebody trying to be funny on purpose, but it goes dramatically wrong. Even funnier hit in the face with a soccer ball. They're trying to do their Richard Nixon impression, right? Unintentional humor is what if he's all about? Yeah. So I've been a fan of this show since nineteen eighty nine. Favourite show got to go. Great, Tom what they do you. When you say, I got to go. It sounds like you were invited there because you had a video in competition. Oh, yeah. No. I like me. Invited to me my wife and a bunch of like high school and college kids with nothing better to do on a Friday night write offs Angeles. I don't even know of Los Angeles. We had to drive for. Anyway, we're in the desert. Yeah, we got there. It was great. We went on the set a couple of things number on off L fonts Ribeiro, a great, man. His name is Giovanni. Who who am? I thinking of your thinking of Giovanni Ribisi. Okay. Alphonse Ribeiro Carlton from the fresh prince. Yeah. He did he like came out. There was a warm-up guy. Right TV shows. But then Carlton came out and did like twenty five minutes of what I would describe as a stand up routine with no jokes. The cadence of like like, he's like, hey, you know, I hate doing the Carlton Dan's everybody, always wants me to do the Carlton then. Yeah. Yeah. I think I could get away from doing the dance in in public. But you know, I found myself where do I find myself the airport and at the airport? People are always coming up to me and doing the Carlton it asked me to do the Carlton, and I'm like, I don't wanna do that dance in like that's the whole anecdote there. And it's it's it's was entertaining. But it's also like Carlton he needs some laugh lines in. Carlson. Anyway, it was fine. It was great. You know what they do? Tom war, number one. They they're always shuffling the audience around. Oh, yeah. We originally beer at the end of the line. We got there late. Sure, they're they're they're moving the camera that they're not facing goes. I don't think so I think it's a to protect a Carlton from an assassination. All right. Exactly, you never know where you're going to be at any given time you can kind of coordinated a. Yeah. No. It's just like every like after every segment, they're like, okay. You six people come over here. You people like we got there late. So we weren't even on the stage. You don't have the audience is on the stage. Yeah. So mad. My wife. She's like, okay. This is fucking bullshit. T one hundred leave as yeah. She's like, I don't think we can leave think we're allowed to outta here. And I like almost got like the stage manager, I'm leaving. But then they cycle the like really quickly. Oh, so maybe that's why they do it. Everybody gets a chance. There's only like ten people that didn't get to sit there. Like, okay. Yeah. I assume like they have that overflow because you know, they don't know how many people are gonna show up. Yeah. Yeah. Whatever I got in very close to Carlton is very nice. But before they story close enough to smell them. Yeah. Smell like he's Mel. He smells clean like soap. Well, that's not a great. Green. Good smell. But he he strikes me as somebody that like you had like a signature like a sage or something kinda smell see. Maybe maybe I would say JR. Would sage I don't know. If that's even what it's called just like a nice. A nice aftershave. Maybe no soap. I really smell smells poop and silver. Sounds like and SaaS gravies. All right. What they do beforehand like each very confusing because they make everybody sit down. Right. And they're like, okay. To get you guys in the mood. We're gonna show you some videos before before the show starts videos that aren't even going to be a part of the show. Right. And I recognized a lot a lot of them as classic video greatest hits. Yeah. Yeah. But get this silent in there, and they played their like everybody look at the screen, and they play bunch of videos like in chunks. They'll play like five videos at a time silent and the one with the with dialogue, and then they're just a subtitled, okay. And like they didn't mention that. They'd be silent. So everybody there is just like. Sure, why are all the videos gonna be without sound? And then you're like, oh, it's because like, yeah. Probably because like they need to get clean laugh sound. Yeah. He did that for like twenty minutes. And I realize it in chunks of like once like videos that made everybody go like, oh, but then there were like a bunch of chunk of ever to be like. Got hitting the balls or whatever. And then they're just be some belly laughs. And I was like, oh, this is where they get the audio for all of the laughs for the entire episode. How they grow the laughs. Yeah. Then the rest of the show for harvesting. Yeah. And then the rest of this show, they had the they had them pump in. Oh, yeah. They use that to probably like Sweden things. I don't know. Because like if you had audience mics, right audience reaction. Being in the thing that would cause some like we. Yeah. I think they just cut all of the audience like they don't they didn't need to show us all the rest of the videos. Right, tom. They set up. These cocktail tables at some people said it. Yeah. Checks mix on all the tables. Pigan shit like. How I watch. When when I was sitting and it felt like I was in the TV there's a bowl of checks mix there. Alphonso Ribeiro is like literally two feet away from me throw into the next thing videos in there is this other guy was me my wife in this other guy at the table and the other guy was so enthusiastic like every time. He'd like to be like man, I can't believe that video. This is great. And then like, I turned my like, I think this might be a weird fever dream of having because it feels like I'm in the television. And then the fact that like my favorite snack here. This is a little too like men. Maybe I'm this is it. I'm going to wake up from. Synapses of my brain. I do expect visit. As I'm assured off this mortal coil, if they were like laser Tillman, we have a special tree Tom bursar on his back coast. Oh, no. And then on the way end then everybody say hi to the Muppets. This is this is gonna walk out of this OB inhale for thirty. Well, Tim you're in. Well, you're a mentioned the I was in Vegas. Guess I'd have to give it a big injure. Big wind up. Angeles. I almost started doing the interest of the show again, give us using to be a little off. I am very often because I was in Las Vegas all those flashing lights mess with your circadian rhythm. Well, I mean the time zone change. Definitely did also like boy, I didn't think I would like Vegas, but I really didn't like Vegas. I've never been to Vegas. And I think I would hate it. No, knowing you like in our similarities, you would not like it. Yeah. Lightening the ways that we're different. Yeah. Would make me less inclined to back. You would think that I like if anyone was going to like it would be me out of the two of us. Right. So if I don't like it, you really wouldn't like it. Yeah. I mean like we've both been to Atlantic sea together. And why did we keep going? A couple times with you. And. They've never been a good time. No. But we need to win back our money. Yeah. Worked every time to. Yeah. Every time the casino. God damn you you came back, and you want all that money loss last time sacking is a heist knowing I was always under the impression that like I don't like it Lake City 'cause it's like a shitty version of Vegas and Vegas is author shitty. Which was like Vegas is nicer than laic city. But not in like ways that I would like, right. I mean, how our like. One of the things that that that like what I hate about Atlantic City. Is that everybody smokey? Yeah. Nobody seems to be being nice to each other. Like, it's it's it's like a casino, and like associated places like attached places to casinos are where people feel like they can just be like for me. Fuck you get out of my way year. It is weird. Like, so I was there for a conference. So it was a little bit different. Because like I was talking to other people in the conference but your hundred percent, right? Like as far as casinos go like people, don't look at each other or like talk to each other like say, hi or anything, and like, you know, we both live in New York City. People don't do that here either. It was like at a more extreme level there. Yeah. Where everybody kinda just wants to be like isolated and just kind of like on their own, which I totally. Get I realized I want that all the time. Like, and I get that like. You know, if you like struck up a conversation with somebody playing a slot machine. Like, you probably get like more than you bargained for pretty quickly and pretty soon like regret having struck up a conversation. Yeah. The smoking is like, especially like, how was it being New York really can't smoke inside like almost twenty years. Yeah. Like eighteen year two thousand. Yes. So like it's crazy to go to a place now where you can smoke anywhere is that what society used to be like go into like McDonald's, and everybody's frigging smoking in like, yeah. Crazy. I think probably more people smoke innovativeness than like anywhere else. Just because like. Yeah. But it's probably less than it used to be. I mean when like, yeah. Going back like thirty years there were probably like everyone Vegas was smoking. All the time you watch a movie from the seventies. Everybody's smoking everywhere. Yeah. The airplane smoking. On airplanes is insane. That's terrifying. That is a small pressurize aluminum tube. We're like where do you think that smokes going? Yeah. I do feel like that. I often think of people smoking on airplanes whenever I get nervous on an airplane. Yeah. We're like, I think it everything's so delicate when you're up in this guy's whatever's like now people used to be like smoking cigarettes like chain smoking and everybody was fine nothing ever happened in airplane. Right. This far as I know they all land one hundred percent of time somebody that I. That reminds me of something else. I wanna talk about second. But somebody else that now talking about now, I went and saw that movie. I man about Neil Armstrong. Yeah. I you should see that you won't think astronauts are cowards anymore. Don't think astronauts are cowards. I just don't think they have to do that. No this movie like all joking aside and giving you shit aside. Like you'll maybe nowadays edge true. These new entitled astronauts back then this guy like they're they're trying to land the land on the moon. He's got like graph paper out like scribbling away like shit like trying doing calculations before they liked crash to land. So they actually have do. Math and stuff. Yeah. I'm at math. I don't think matters particularly hard. I don't think doing math makes you a hero. But you good one reason why I think people consider astronauts heroes. And also why like this movie really did a good job of it? And they were trying to explain this. But I was like, oh this is like a really good explanation for. One of the biggest things with these moon. Landing conspiracies is like if we landed on the moon. How can we haven't come back and so long, but in the movie, they show you like twelve astronauts died during the Gemini Apollo missions. And like how upset like in the reproach tests and stuff it's like, oh, that's why. Because like a lot of people die. Why did you sit me up to jokingly that how astronauts don't have it that hard? And then give sincere speech about how sad it is. Yeah. Let me just say because I wanted to make a fool, Tim. Yeah. He did. I was just kidding. I do think it's harder than most jobs to crossing his fingers. People can't see look look ethic. Astronauts are brave. I wouldn't go to the moon. Just go into orbit. No. I wouldn't go into space at all. Because I also I don't see the point. Yeah. So anyway, I went and saw that movie that was that was in Las Vegas. The best time. I had this going to see a movie was it in a special theater, something it was in a theater attached to the casino hotel. It was like a big it was a multiplex. It was a full on casino hotel casino hotel is called SAM's town. It is the killers album is that what the killers album is it's called SAM's town. And I know the killers are like, oh, maybe that's what it's about is the album about the casino or casino. The follow up to the hit. I'm gonna guess that the album among guests that they're both about something else. Yeah. There's that. There is maybe a town called SAM's town that they're both. He think it's a Las Vegas is do you think? Oh, maybe that's like, a nickname for Vegas, SAM's town, and one would think that you were tasked to leaving you. I went there. I did all the research, but they had a a full on movie theater nexus place and. At one point after the conference is over. I had a couple of hours to kill before. I went to the airport. So I went to the as I go I can go to a movie theater five dollar matinee. Wow, that's one reason to stay there. Oh, absolutely. And it was very nice theater. It was you know, like full on multiplexes all new releases everything, and like, I think there was a non-casino entrance baby. Sorry your microphone into your face. So yeah, that was fun because I didn't want to gamble. I don't like gambling. I like gambling for literally five minutes, and then I'm a mmediately frustrated, and or bored with it. Yeah. I mean, that's that's an admirable quality. I'd say, oh, yeah. I'm not like, oh, I wish I like gambling also baffled by it. Yeah. Like, I feel like you don't take this wrong way. 'cause I'm like this where it's just like your like, you'd get a chip on your shoulder if you like went down some money, and you're like, oh, no Tommy is not going down like this time. He's gonna Tommy is gonna make these people pay. Yeah. Like your analytical like, I think, you're more. You're you're too hot headed to be a guy who doesn't like gambling because I think people really gambling like it's like, oh, how dare you disres-? Affect me. You think you could take my money? I'm gonna make you so sorry you ever tried to take my money. Yeah. I think I would be that way. If I didn't know like just at a fundamental level. Everything's rigged against you. Yeah. Your mind. The way to not lose your price and not play. Yeah. I mean, if they came to my house, and we're like we brought a bunch of you know, casino games. Then maybe I'd be like, well, I had vantage house always wins. And we're in my house. So yeah. Now, I will that would be a good way for the casinos to trick me into. I mean, I guess that's what online gambling. Sheldon Alderson came to your ass. Ooh, no get out of here. What is that all of your face? Putty. Are you are you made entirely of clay told my floor? No just fell out. A big like roulette wheel with. On hanging it through my door. You're marking up the door frame. No, I played some slots the like when you get there. You know, they like give you a card, and they're like if you bet five dollars to get, you know, five dollar free player whatever, and I did that and ten dollars, and then I immediately one forty dollars. I hit the button a cash and left with the forty dollars. It's great. This drinks for tonight. And it was also I was coughing from all the smokes I had to leave. But yeah, so movie. Why were we talking about before talking about airplanes and how dangerous they are? And I man and no that's. Las vegas. That's where I went. Yeah. Wow. All right. Maybe just go to your next note on the way. Ten years. Yeah. It's a weird place. I was telling you earlier, but I'll repeat it. I realized that it wouldn't be a place for me to put it that way. Because literally in the airport. I overheard two men having a conversation about the TV show tool time, and there's not TV show called tool time. There's a TV show called home improvement unless they lived in the home improvement universe. There's no TV show called or if they were talking about maybe they're watching maybe they're like cuts online of just tool time tool time good show, a better show than home improve. I'm sure there's like somebody online. That's just edited out all the tool time segment and put those on lines. So then you could watch tool time. Yeah. And maybe if I was like excuse me, sir. The Che's called home improvement. Not tool time, they'd be like I'm talking about watching edited segments on the internet that are just a minute. And thirty seconds of tool time have you ever been to the Tim Allen sub read it where you can get? Cuts of time. Also, the other thing in Vegas. I knows right after I got off the plane is that there's a lot of like men older than us like ten years older than us that thirties that. Still think mall punk is a desirable. Yeah. Yeah. Was it Mark, hops. It wasn't Mark hopping. No. But I saw like a lot of men his age that seems like a like one of the Vegas styles guys in their late forties. Dressing like a two thousand and two puncture get I mean, and I like I don't think more copies like dresses like that anymore. Right. Like, even on tours and stuff like that. I imagine like he wears like probably like a lot of black just kinda like nondescript clothing, look, he seems like a nice guy. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. But I'm nothing against the hob. And that's my point like, I don't think Markopoulo probably dresses like he didn't the nineties anymore. Right. But a lot of men who presumably did. Even have an excuse. It would be very lucrative. Costume that. I wear. A mandate. Alice Cooper for wearing all that face pain. Right. But there were a lot of people. They're probably like fans of that kind of stuff that that. Yeah. That's that's how they like. I saw I saw man easily in his fifties wearing jinx jingo jeans. They're coming back. Well, any was riding a skateboard coolest way to get around for any age. Yeah, you're doing that in Vegas. It's the desert all sand or sand in your pain. Yeah. They have pave some of it was there were there, roads and stuff. The road was called the Las Vegas strip. It was that whistle because he think like that's where the strip club is. Now. I think the strip club is everywhere. I didn't see any strip game. I hid myself year. That's a later topic. Okay. But I got off the plane went to the Las Vegas strip the sunset strip. No god. Dammit. You're in LA. Yeah. Very stayed the sentence for at one time I stayed on the sunset strip in Los Angeles. God, dammit. It was not good. Yeah. Yeah. Too bad part of town. Motel six something. One of those. Yeah, it's bad read Rufin. Yeah. There was one room that didn't have windows in it. Rooms to go in there. I was there with my band. Okay. And there were five of sharing a room. And so there was one room that had Queen bed that three of us shared. There was another window. Through. Yeah. Another window list. The head a stain on the ceiling above the bed, which is like what tragedy happened here that the ceiling probably a tragedy. Happened upstairs from that room. Yes. So anyway. The Vegas trip. Say like can compare them. But the hotel talk reminded me of the hotel talk that I wanted to talk about when I said, I forgot what I was gonna say was that somebody I was talking to their had gotten in late and they had to. So you know, they they got in late, and this another thing these frigging casinos, and we had this happened. Once I think when we went to Atlantic City for a friend's bachelor party where you get there. And they're like, well, I have a reservation under Reynolds. Well, we have to see if they're a rooms left. It's like well, hold on hold the phone. I said I had reserved a room not that I would like a room. And I'm telling you for the first time same shit there. Which is. Insane. In my mind, if I'm not reserving a room reserving and paying for room up front, whether I get there or not is none of your concern. And like, you should be happy. Like, okay. Well, if the person doesn't show up we're gonna charge them, and we'll save a little money because we don't have to go in and house clean that room. Yeah. But we'll we'll double our money, right? Doubled down. That's what you do baby. Yeah. Says the swingers there. Jon favreau. Wife swap or something. I mean, they're all over that that godforsaken place. I kind of see what I was always kind of looking at people and and thinking like our they here for a swingers committed to be clear not there for swingers convention.

You think ever gone to a swingers convention thing, and it was for the movie and not for having sex with other people's partners. I feel like the promotional materials. Would like. Until like nineties era. Dudes dressed up like fifties. Do right? Yeah. But wait you saw like a bunch of, you know, like scantily clad men and women and you dislike, oh, it's like this ads like in character for like John fab or not Jon Favreau, Vince vaughn's character like he would make this kind of ad because it's Vegas. Maybe. Yeah. You'd have to go through a lot of mental. Jimmy, exactly there's. If you like you'd ask a couple of questions, right? Like, do you think they'd use your so money, but you don't know it and that was not a good movie? No, just like a very cringe-worthy movie now. Yes back, but a lot of people loved it. And those people are living in Las Vegas tracing. Like Mark up is today. No. I was gonna say the thing that forgot was. I was talking to somebody that got in late and when they got their hotel room. Luckily, they had a hotel room at all. But like we gave away your room, but we have a a smoking room for you. Nice. Just like it was so discussing these like think like you think the room smells like smoke, like, oh, you know, the like sheets and pillows, they don't swap those around like they're smoking sheets and smoking do bays and smoking pillows. You know, it's always a good time smoking in bed. It's safe to aids. It's safe. It's just a fun hobby. Saving the long insured term. People smoke while they were eating not even like oh. After a meal. I have a cigarette. It's like, no. During a meal. I have a cigarette in between bites somebody before I almost gave him money. Just because I was like I want to see where this is going. But like a homeless person stopped me, and they were like, can you give me some money? I need to buy a package of steak packages steak. Yeah. It's all fancy for somebody and also like a package of steak. Yeah. How many states we talk in here? Yeah. I'd like to company to you to the point of sale here. No. And I think that would have been fined she stopped me like as I was walking out of the supermarket. And I think probably under the you know, that I would be here's a couple of bucks. Not like, all right. I'll come in. I'll go buy some steak. Hey. And I knew that she said I'm at the homeless shelter homeless shelter has a way to cook stakes. I don't know. I don't know. How it works in Vegas? I kinda know wasn't Vegas. It was here in New York. Really? I kind of regret not. Guess you wouldn't have get to the supermarket Vegas. Yeah. Maybe I would have sometimes I do that do that whenever I'm in England. Go to the supermarket Tesco seen berries. Yeah. When you and I do shows in London, we do most of our eating at supermarket Xouli. Like just sandwiches cheese an onion baby cheese. Cheese sandwich. The best the secret of that. Kind of have good amount of cheese on it. Yeah. They do. I mean, it's really a secret seems like yeah. Secret sauce except for the mayo. That's on that's another. That's really the secret sauce because it's not in the name of the right? Yeah. They they keep that under undercover. I think I'm detecting. I don't think this is just cheese and onion. There's something else in this Honey, Honey, tastes this stage. Like, it's mayo. You. I know bread is in listen ingredients. But it's a soom because it's a sandwich that there would be bread. So I know it's not bread. But there is something else to this. Las Vegas so disappointed. I didn't get to go. The Michael Jackson one show. Yeah. Why didn't you it wasn't happening that night? And that night was like really the only time. So that the hotel I was at was like a half hour. Here's the other thing about Vegas. You look at everything on a map. And you're like, oh, great. Everything's close. No, really. They built everything like a weird scale like blow. Yeah. No. I know the New York New York casino is a smaller scale beyond that even like, everything like blocks. There are like ten times the size of New York City blocks when you look on a map, you're like, oh, it's three blocks nuts, actually, like thirty blocks. Like, I. Sidestreets you say cross streets. Yeah. Yeah. No. It's like a it's like an entire city where every road is a highway sounds like. Yeah. That sounds like my nightmare. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. And like, you know, I would call like a lift. From one place to another look at that, you know as a straight line, and that straight line, it'd be a straight line. Maybe I got three blocks. They why is it is gonna take twenty five minutes to get there. Then you would find out when you you know, in the car. A long distance. Yes. I ain't the Michael Jackson show because it's too far away. Tom could've been I don't know. I really wish. I gone. Yeah. Yeah. I wish I had bought that hat to they were selling. I win a gift shop and they're selling Michael Jackson fidora's like he has in in smooth criminal. Yeah. I really thought it was bullshit that you didn't buy that at least for a bit. Yeah. You know, it's only thirty five dollars. That's what it's thirty five dollars. Did it have some sort of Michael Jackson on it? Yeah. Like on the strap original New York. Fedora? No, it's like, Michael Jackson war. It'd be like no your door. Again. See that's why I would have bought it. I don't like things with branding, Tim. We I don't like an out costume with valve on it. Guess what? Tom. Yeah. Go get a fedora New York jerky street where he got his hat and looking at it closely. I should have brought up a picture. But I think they would have thrown me out. I don't think it was like actually very similar to the type that MJ war. Also town if you thrown out of the gift show. Oh, no. Coming back several times before I left I gone to see the show certainly would have come back and bought some memorabilia. Bummed. You didn't see that didn't even they have a prince show too, right? Yeah. Yeah. I'm not sure where that was. I didn't come across it feel like that has to be. Like unlicensed, right? I don't know Princess a state, I guess is played it way more loosey goosey than print them. I. Yeah. Hundred percent like you know, you hear print songs in commercials and stuff. Now, there's a Capital One or commercial with. Let's go crazy one. I was thinking. Yeah. It's like come on like this would have been like he got mad when when like bands covered his. Mad bands that he liked cover songs. He didn't like it would have been cool with a Bank commercial users. Pisses me up so much. See I didn't go to that show. Let me tell you, Tim. There's I think like thirty different Cirque du Soleil did you see love shining? Beadle shining like to see that Tim. I went and saw one show is called. I man it was bad astronaut. I'm a little disappointed like, Tom I spent a lot of money to v. What I went. In Los Angeles by these tickets from a scalpel wanna talk about it. But I didn't you. Oh, okay. Because like, it seemed like a last minute thing that you went, but I guess people. Up secret, Los Angeles. If you drive a couple hours and want to see a taping of a TV show that's been on for twenty nine years. And. You're one of two hundred and fifty people that happen show up for one of the three tapings that day. Let you in for free. Wow. Yeah. Keep that late. Like we did. And you'll get cycled into the the seats on stage keep that in mind in Los Angeles. So I didn't see that. Did you see Penn and teller or Piff the magic dragon? No, I didn't Tim I told you I saw one show is called. I man, I think. Didn't go to Penn and teller. He didn't go to the Michael Jackson experience. You didn't go to the bunny ranch. What did you even do they need to go and see you know, that they sell? I didn't realize this was still like a thing. But they were like surprising amount of like nude reviews nude reviews. Yeah. Like. Like at really nice places at like the nice hotels. It was like like. The Mandalay bay. Okay. The balaj. Oh. Nude reviews there. Yeah. I mean, I. This is I mean, I guess it's not like a nude or showgirl show, but they don't call them like showgirl shows anymore. The nude review that might just be a name. I give. But I was just surprised like they advertise that their topless. Okay. But like I was surprised that like what a weird thing. Like when you take a step back a bunch of people where it's like, hey, we're going to Spain's he plays like they've spent millions and millions of dollars Bill. They got this fountain outside that's world renowned. Yeah. And inside like. Show in it's going to be like very intricately choreographed. Yeah. The production values are going to be great. But really it's just a bunch of guys wanted to look at some ladies milkers. And they're going to go through all these hoops to like, we're gonna go through all these hoops to instead of them just going to a strip club. We're going to put on big Berkeley type production. Yeah. But yeah, it was the prize at how many there were. And now it's the price because I was like. Like, should I shall go to wind? These like is this thing where like I can go like just a solo creep. But I don't know. I don't think with your wife think it's all just like we have to keep this like real legitimate, everybody, bring wives and like. Every life to suffer through this. Spectacle. I should've looked if like if you could pay extra and they get somebody to pretend to be your wife. Yeah. And it's legal. Yeah. It's fine in Las Vegas. Oh boy. But that would really be throwing your money out. If you prostitute. Two and feel about it. Yeah. I don't like this at all. Yeah. So I was surprised at like just how many of those there were Tom be honest with me. Yeah. I'll stop the recording. Okay. Great. It's stopped. Did you go one of these interviews? No. I didn't. If I went at like, honestly, I thought about it mostly because I was like I'm going to get back into episode about Vegas have not done anything. Like, maybe I should go to a new review. So I could as you eloquently, but it sees a. And I'll talk about and I was legitimately interested in like like what is this? Like like is it is it like? I imagine it probably is like a fantastic show. But is it like people like Yellen like enough just shows your? I soon it's it's an audience pervert. Yeah. Because there's plenty of legitimate show search too so layer like that, that's that's like feats of acrobatic strength. So let me tell you another sign. I saw which was circus. Oh, lays first and only eighteen plus adult show. Now, they're they're in the game to a bunch of guys, you know, swinging from tramp eases with their ding-dong hanging out to us too. See I didn't get to go the shows. But I was also like that was the other thing that was so strange to me. It's like they're doing like, you know, sure every night like in big places. Like, they got a bring a lot of people. Yeah. Should've gone. She got to all these ship blown off the conference discount and all the neuter views, and then give him my nude review review. You're nude. Few would not be nude. You know, Tom's non nude nude review review. Did you go to the Hoover dam? No. I looked into it. Because not that far while you were in Vegas. I just realized this now, I watched Vegas vacation. Oh, did you. I mean, I went to Vegas and literally as I was getting off the plane. I didn't do any research into like, oh, I did. I tried the day before and I just got overwhelmed. Like, oh, what should I like go seek because I had like data myself or half a day. And as I was getting out the phone off the plane. I realize oh, I don't know anything about Vegas in anything. I do know is from Vegas vacation. Yeah. It's great film. Did I ever tell you my wife? When I met her. Mentioned that like that. One of her favorite movies is Vegas vacation. And she seen it so many times. But up until recently, she hadn't didn't realize it was part of a French never saw any of the other vacations. I think she knew existed. You ever have a band where like you listen to one of their albums, and you're like this album rules, and it becomes one of your favorite albums, and this is enough. And I've never listened to any of the other ones that was her vague. It's fake ation was the one that was like no one speaks to me not interested in the two arguable classics right in the in the rest of the series. Yeah. Yeah. Vacation was seen as you know. Yeah. Dog in the in the I love is great movie people like how do you rank them like the originally -cation has to be one? But a lot of people think Christmas Christmas vacations on European is kind of a little more low brow than you know, to be honest. Like, I'm even I'm not I'm a lot like your wife, Tim. I'm really not familiar with vacation or European vacation. I don't know if I've really seen them all the way through certainly not in recent years if you. To hear Lindsey Buckingham. Vacation the holiday rude like constantly for for two hours. Check out all the rest of the movie. Yeah. That's onesie Buckingham. The best the best song to come out of Fleetwood. Mac. I did also walk by. And went inside briefly. Gordon Ramsey's hell's kitchen. Tom me. And you it inside the best TV show. It's very strange to me to have a hell's kitchen themed restaurant base on hell's kitchen where everything comes out late and undercooked. And yeah, the ships are just getting screamed at the competent screamed at their sweating into the soup all the time, and you could eat there yell. Yeah. It was a full restaurant. Is that the one from the TV show? I am mad at thinking. It is. I mean when they do the chant. No, they must film that. Now. A right. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So is that where they send the winners when they're like your. Like, you will be a chef in Gordon. Ramsey's Las Vegas restaurant. They probably don't wanna sully his like real restaurants in Las Vegas. They don't want to sell e like kids. He probably has like, I know he he does that. There was a Gordon Ramsay burger place. And then I think there are like the very expensive legitimate like five star at least one that he has somewhere there. And I think they might not even have Gordon Ramsey's name in the rush. And they probably built this hell's kitchen thing 'cause like every contestant on health and not a culinary superstorm. Sorry to. Say no, and yeah, this thing was on the strip next to shake shack. Like, this was not, you know, the full Gordon Ramsay experience. It also I. I mean people who listen to our fright fest episode, no of them easily startled. I was. I take a picture of the outside and send it to you look Ryan. And that was like go inside like see what's inside like, you know, they asked even though was terrified that they would be like table for one. Will it to see? All right have a meal there that I didn't want. But right when I walked in. There's like a like a founder something like thing, there's lots of fountains, but this is like a regular size found, and then like all of a sudden a hologram of Gordon Ramsay walks. He's like Hello. Welcome to my restaurant. I'm like, oh my God. Yeah. I mean this. City say it's wrong. No, it must have been like triggered by me walking in. And like he says Hello. And then he like walks out of the thing. He doesn't come back. Does he have a funny quip or anything? Did he call you a cow? No, no, no. I think it was very excuse me, very professional just yell. Welcome me to the restaurant. And hope I had a good time or something. I mean, sure. But I send you a picture. I did take a picture. They like the wall of winners. Do I don't recognize. When I was like the show's been on for twenty four seasons or something insane. Like, yeah. I guess when you do like four seasons a year. A lot of time. They need to burn on FOX. Yeah. I went to a mall. It was very depressed. I don't know. Why went to a mall? I do not. Bathroom. I didn't really I went in Mandalay bay a little bit walked around that casino casino was way nicer than than SAM's town. And I wasn't even staying at. Same sounds stain at this place called eastside cannery. What really? Yeah. Is that about it was like a a worse version of SAM's town. Oh, wow. Yeah. Samson was doing some research has been around since the late seventies. Really? Oh. Is it what it's based on? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Wow. Neat. Yeah. Yeah. It was walking around the side one. Like, the hotel was booked so to say at the cannery, and I thought like us next door. So that'll be easy. But next door, there's a ten minute walk, and and like, they don't want you walk in anywhere blocks. Yeah, they don't wanna walk anywhere. And like, yeah. There were so many people that were like that. They all say it's too dangerous to walk in between the places like no, it's not they're just like aren't really places to walk jump over a wall to get. To get out of the parking lot. There wasn't a walking way to get out of the parking lot. Like didn't look and landed on a homeless person who is sleeping under that wall. I mean landed landed. Oh my God. I'm so sorry. I didn't see you here. Yeah. Is that just because there are homeless people. That's why they're like odes deadly. It's dangerous. Maybe like, no, let's just go get from place to place by limousine. Lift. The lift there's weird too. I mean weird compared to New York where like where it's just regular people cars the same thing Angeles lifting. Lifting around. Yeah. When I didn't wanna drive and find parking. So like, yeah, it's like people in like they have like a beach towel down in the back of their like Toyota trista. Yeah, weird. So it was a combination of that. Where like oh boy. And like those people are chatty. Are they urged speak to you. Maybe maybe that's what it is like site. A few were like, you know, people are asking me my life story. And then tell oh, yeah, I'm going to school here bubble bomb? I cool. Like, this is a five minute ride, man. Could both just be quiet. Don't worry. Like, I'm still going to give you a five stars and a tip like I. And then one guy in his car there were there were all like neon lights and stuff under the seats is all like lit up. And then there was a screen just playing music videos like up for me to enjoy. I really enjoy. It was kinda like why I don't want. All this just just a ride, please. I took I took a lift or Juno to the airport in New York says a forty five minute ride. And they had that they had they had a screen in the back that was showing concert. I forget what it was. But. But they had. Like, it was a live concert Live Aid. No, it was real live as it was happening. No. But it was I don't know. There were a lot of cover songs. I think it might have been a weird Christian thing. But. I couldn't get it to turn off. And then I realized there's a screen in the front that the driver was watching the same thing while he was driving in case, you had a questions or whatever. It was bad. Yeah. There used to be there. Still are books laws on the books and books on the law, but reading law school. That you used to not be able to have like any type of screen in front of the the beyond. The I, you know, I rove seats that repealed when during the filming of pimp my ride. No, really, well, this is a very powerful exhibit. He went and lobbied for it. And yeah. Got it got it repealed. It was very close with a bunch of congressman. Yeah. So. That was Las Vegas. I ain't even see any hookers. And I'd I'd heard before. Because I was like. Don't want deal with this like, well, I guess I really do it. But that like, oh, if you if you're a single man in the like, go to a bar like within thirty seconds. Somebody's gonna come sit down next the NBA go. Hi. And like, you know, if you're dope, you're going to be like, ooh. But that didn't have I guess I didn't go and drink at the bar by myself.

And so if you would have let me finish the one thing that I wish I had done was bed on a sporting event because I did walk over to that that looks like frigging NASA mission control times ten there's like, so many screens and screens playing all the different sporting events, of course. But then like just so much information like just. Just text about the oh, I guess what's going on odds and all that. And then, but you have to go and fill out a form. And then like you have to bring that to like a person at a counter, and then you sit in a little booth for some reason you get to sit in a booth. Yeah. I mean, what are you thinking? I mean when I say a luxury box at a sporting. No, no. This was like like the kind of booth that like if you're doing research at the library, and they have dividers up when you're voting or something. Yeah. It's not a very vote, right? Hey, sports luxury Boxster. Yeah. Show up. No rock the vote. But you call this a booth. So I didn't because I imagine that like I have course, wouldn't ask somebody how it's done. So I would have tried to figure it out for myself, and it was complicated enough that I would have screwed something up, and they would been like. Yeah. Many would have thought you one. And then like they would explain to you how you didn't win. Right. And then he would argued and stormed out. Yeah. Would've left thinking like they knew I didn't really know just kept the money. House always wins. Did you go to the fountains at the Balaj? I walked by them. It was before they were on. They have so many songs that they play. There is a horrible found show inside SAM's town that was a had animatronic animals, which you would think like, wow. But they were like meant to be realistic animatronic animals. It's like, look if you're gonna make an amateur animal may get cartoonish because you're not going to sell that there's a wolf in here. So it was like that. And lasers and just like really loud and happen like every hour. Did it ever play one singular sensation? Now, I played like some song they made for it to play. This look be related. No, I wish. Viva Las Vegas. No, tim. I told you played one song. These are all sons that you could see the founder. This is the only research you did. And you're so excited. Good. A new free guide did some research about all the songs they play at the fountain. I mean so far. Everybody. Could you imagine what the fountain would be? This is your song. Sh- ima quite simple that sh-. Now that is. Hope you. I hope you get. So ct. I don't think you understand how the fat. Comes into a little trickle. Your sunk jumps like a bed for that. Are there any surprises on that list of the star spangled banner is done by Whitney Houston? That's not a surprise believe share. That sounds surprise either uptown funk, but did you know that the uptown is capital? You lower case p capital T Lucchese. Oh w. I didn't know that the Balaj screwed that one out. Oh, the Pink Panther. So. So. Here's what I know. We're going back one thing. I know all of these are YouTube perfect. Yeah. Everybody everybody. Let's. Let's take five or you know, we'll let you go till next week. But as soon as you're done what we're gonna do in.

And as you know, we had a little bit of a special episode yesterday with me, Bowen cat and Pat called seek culture that was part one and part two was about to hit ya right now. Right across dumb little face. So if you haven't listened to part, one of Sikh culture, please listened to that episode on seek treatment. And here we go. We're about to do part two of c- culture or here on Las countries. This. Oh, I see. What would look over there? How is that culture? Less culture. Move on. So this comes from Canada. This comes from Canada this person. Famous have been I wanna go provided their own pseudonym, it's Canada. So this is what they Hello darlings as a forty year old woman. I'm coming to you tiny young things for advice because I'm su- st-. Everyone of all Mattia. I have been working in the creative arts as a theatre director for more than fifteen years with youth. There is a woman in the same community that used to work with me, and now actively disparage as me to others in our small theater, I fucking love drama. I hear this from people that I work with as well as thinly veiled social media post as she makes about our productions or my person. She's I believe that this behavior comes from jealousy. As shows are well attended and critically acclaimed. Her negative attitude towards me makes me feel nervous and unwelcoming the theatre community in our town despite having a lot of friends in the community and having worked with many people, I worry about her gossip spreading and it discourages me from getting involved with other projects as an actor or even continue with my own little I rise above it and continue as a creative contributor to our community signed. I'm not good. I'm not bad. I'm just right Canada. I. What a sign I'm addicted to her. We love you. We love you. I'm so sorry. That's happening. Happening that socially. It's like this person clearly has needs so much treatment. I guess the only thing you can do is just continue to be kind. Everyone. You come across this just they'll they'll see that. It's not true, and truly I the sound. So this might sound simplistic. But it is one of those things where you just stay in your lane. My mom for some reason always tells me reminds me she's like gotta work has really stressful. I have these enemies at work. You know, what to stay in a key my paper. And yeah, I smile at them. I'm nice to them. I do everything I can to just also stand my own ground. Stick my own claim on things. But like all you can do is just ignore those fucking shitty people. And also always remember that people can see that behavior. Like, you're not the only one who's known as like people can see that like, passive aggressive and even sometimes flat out aggressive behavior on social media. And they talk about it amongst themselves. Like Hello whenever like anyone's acting crazy in our community. Do we not all talk about it takes this person is getting shit talked on her verger yet? She's sounds like this person sounds like a mess. It's. Definitely hung from jealousy. It sounds like you're shows are great. She sounds. Fucking untalented. Can I ask you guys? Do you guys have haters? I have one specific ater? Oh, really when I in santio remember November because it's like shapes tweet the screen grab. And you're like, no, that's intense. Oh, the random person. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Of course around. I think sometimes we'll talk about this. Sometimes it's just like, it's not a hater thing. Just like, obviously, an insecurity thing that we that. We then hear about and it's funny when we won't hear about it. Yeah. It's it's the peop-. It's yeah. It's not a hate. It's just people putting certain things on us that aren't necessarily enough steam, and maybe the to maybe to the wrong person. And I don't begrudge them of that. I'm only just like, well, that's just not true. And like at a certain point in says, the set us when we when you and I were complaining about this stuff city was just like at a certain point. You just have to realize that the other person is just wrong. And like, there's that's you just leave it at that. And that's the thing too is with the situation. It's like all you can do is stay you're right Inger lane. Stay. Creating good stuff and keep a positive attitude, and then you can go to sleep every night knowing that same thing. Yes. It's a classic. Keep your side of the street clean yet Jewish in don't let her discourage you from doing other projects that that that really breaks, my heart. If that's if that's true. And and you know, if it is like try to just I mean, you're shows are rela tended like you are a successful theatre director like just really really coast on that. If anything let it fuel your fire. Yes. I love that. We love. Thank you that whole person. Okay. Can I see? Yeah. I miss c two ABC. I'm telling you, please EMA Beckham my closest friendships start with drama, and that's how I feel about UC. Yes. I mean. Hello. All right. So this one's from J D. My I won't fund names one. This one I loved doing. Let's say her name on three one two three. Simone Simone this. This is from Simone Simone is such a she's an eighty Simone rights one. I'm a newly graduated young professional L MFA. Oh, so I have my first time full job grab I got dumped by my college boyfriend might crazy post breakup stage. I started sleeping with my coworker head it was supposed to be a one time thing, but it has turned into more than that. I stop to. I just got a bear bad haircut. It's way too short for me. Living. Now, I love all of you. Thank you, all my love, you love you back some bone. I would say there's no reason to stop sleeping with him. Unless it's making you feel bad if it's fun. Yeah. I don't bother about co worker. I don't care about like is this right? It's like fuck just do whatever you want. If. No, if you're not hurting anyone that's my. But that's how I'm very selfish, and I live forever. Feels good in the moment. It's hurting your bed while overall. Grow all girl. Oh baby in there. You can just kind of get on the side of the bed Hecker and just be like, you can always do something fun, and you can spin it and looking back at my life. Now that it's over. Thirty thirty an with thirty and with thirty looking back at my life with thirty. I think that some of the happiest most productive times of my life where when I had about Harkat just funny how things work and also I think with the co work. I think just yeah. Just keep doing it. And see what happens if you realize you don't want to do it. And don't, you know, I don't I think there is like real truth to people saying we don't shit where you eat. I think I think I think someone who's done it. In an office in bar. Like, we get to now have these loose definitions of like what work is I'm like, what could we're co working spaces are. Okay. Has to be very. He's going to sit this one out. So I just think. Every workplaces different. It depends on what your replaces places. Like, if you're if there is potential for this to end poorly and for this too. For this to like repercussion some bad way at your job. Then that's a little risky, and I'm so sorry about your your call ex-boyfriend. But it's for the best. It's for the for the best that you guys maybe aren't together. But I I just I don't know. I I think it really depends on the circumstances with the co worker. Well, it's like this. It's it was supposed to be a one time thing, but it has turned into more than that. Yes. So it's not that she saying, it's become okay? Fucking more. It could even be feelings. She if it's feelings, and then then negotiate it like and also like you can't deny what you're feeling and also just check in. I think it's a good check in moment because there's a reason to check in because you work together. And it's also never bet to check in. Yeah. I've never stopped doing something. My whole early twenties, and my actual it was all talking my bosses, and literally the last boss I had at this restaurant. I worked at I wanted to fuck so bad like, and I was like this is a bad instinct, I think, and I think it would have been bad I had sex with him. Could we close the door? It's insane. No, you're making produce. I'm sorry. Hop produce. I'm sorry. The instinct to keep it open. A so crazy. The office over her bag. It's like. Sorry opposite of back and believe women. Anything else for this? You're going to great place at citing are single and and working and young. And I think I think especially if you've got a college you have to have those moments. Well, it turned out won't be easy to create problems. Maybe. But isn't that what you're twentieth four? Yes. Problems problems. Can I read one? Yeah. What's this person's? I'm gonna call this person. Cutie Cutie Matt saw has his photo. Oh, let me and truly. It's just 'cause he's blonde. Stop it. You always do that. To me. I've decolonize. Now, what's that? What's his name either of his top? Now. This is. You cannot with it though. And if you late blood. Okay, guys. Wh what's her name Cutie Cutie fast? All right. Here's security fest says Judy. How do I move to NYC? NYC as a dump person without money. No, you're not I'm twenty two and people used to always say I have potential, but now they don't say it anymore weird. What kind of potential? Security and then Cudi? Okay. So how can I get discovered or at least make friends governor? This is an. More. Also, like where do I live literally, how does New York work? I feel like New York City is at least three states big extract. So Cutie facts Europe works like this. I want to hear what's up. I want all of us to go around in one sentence say how New York work. Boy, tangles first case is. Really just like a vertical? It's just stacks of people and that is horrifying. If you think about it. It's as people living on literally living on top of each other. And that really informs the whole sort of politics of the city, and and how people relate to each other how the infrastructure is crumbling literally as we sit here in an old building. So that's that's how New York works, Catherine had his New York work, New York is emails coffee is Craigslist. York is walking through the garbage and saying, but it's no. Anywhere else. New York is oh my God. It's fabric. It's now nece if. But it's also rhythm. And you know, it it isn't then not no, no, no nine. Okay. Is that helpful? I would say helpful street, easy dot com refined. But that being said, I'm looking for employment right now and tell I found so I know here's Joe let me ask you this. All going around and saying, okay, you started that we've got to say one thing. Right. I found a great place. They sent me application on my. I don't know what this means. What's a letter of employment? I'm serious for me. That's your freelancer. So I what I would do for. You is this is my advice to you. You're seeing is. I would have Joe's pub. Yeah. Exactly. And thing have gone hubbing. Maybe even or an Email like a big, whatever your biggest check is showed them that pay stub. You know, what I mean, like, your your most recent largest showed them those pays jobs. It's different for you. Because when Henry and I were looking for an apartment he had to go to the ends of the earth to prove his income, and it is annoying. But you can do it. And I think it would be rather easy for you. But over stuff is what I would say. Yeah, you have the voice over stuff. You just where do you make the most consistent money live performance? Voiceover voice. Okay. That'd be incredible. She did the voiceover. Any should literally Astros pep to send. Yeah. I would do that. You should do the voice over, and you should do the voice. You should do the voice. That's more after thank you. And what is New York New now, she's a dictum to me again? It's so it's so why do I need to know everything about my fucking life to give me an apartment now. It's gone. It's an especially the government on building. The Henry the one that used to come to when we live together. It was psycho to lock lockdown that apartment. It was a three month process. No, then they took a month to even decide and they needed they needed. My they needed my like w nine's twenty fourteen. It was fucking crazy crazy or any of that shit is all right, Pat. What is New York New Yorkers ton of contradictions? Everyone's gain. No one's gay. There's always a place at charge your phone. There's never a place to charge on. It's good. It's bad. Everyone taught. No one's hot. Everyone's obsessed with you. No one wants to fuck, yo. Everyone's a comedian. Nobody was funny. Yeah. That's New York. That's so good gorgeous. I love that. Now, New York is an epic song says are all the versus all detail people acting like they know exactly where they're going. And then the verses of the song that is New York. You have people who are walking confidently upstairs downstairs to subways standing in subway, sometimes even using both their hands or leaning on the subway poles taking up space, New York is a lot of people taking up a lot of space. But guess what? In the chorus of the song. It's all out of indecision. Honey, it's all a lot of just ordinary. People would just. Road. And guess what? So are you baby? And this is what I would say to you Cutie fast just fucking do it. Because the way that you'd move to New York. There's no one who can ever fucking tell you. Here's how you do it. Here's what to do get a relatively cheap apartment. You're twenty to like be resourceful. You're going to have to get a job that you don't really like in the beginning. And you're probably going to have to have that job for a little bit. That is part of the grind what I would say to anyone that wants to move to New York City is prepared to not fucking love your life for the first three or four years, even the years. Or, you know, twenty twelve twenty. On hated my life. I've worked five days out of the week at a restaurant you worked in nine to five nine to five I tempt at the shittiest fucking place. I worked at a nine to five where I hated my life. I currently nanny. Yeah. I still him L. And what did you do before like you were making money like tutoring? Tutoring and we had a table them, maybe THAAD and working office. I was I was. I was I was career waiter. Like, we were all we all fucking hit. Like, you know, mopped the floors and shut you know, you got to be prepared to come here. And like just do the work to build a base and it takes longer in New York. But the rue wards are really great. And I would say is town anything can happen. Anything can have really can I'm Sarah. I get really emotional. I think. Also on more contradiction is your as your wildly jealous of everyone. But everyone also is very sad to keep your head down. Like, everyone else is just keep your head down and work. And then I feel. You know, people used to tell you potential, but now they don't say it anymore. That's not true. I thought I thought I thought sorry. You're twenty two years old that pats. You're wildly Dallas with people. But you're also very happy for everyone. But then. And everyone's very. I will say is go listen to the company soundtrack play another hundred people and book your ticket bit. Training. Yes. Show up places yet beat just God force yourself to go out. Even if you feel awkward, even if you're alone. But also know that it might not like, I don't know. I I did those things then it didn't work out for a long time in the night again. But it's like, no. But I mean, I like fully crashed and burned in had out of New York. And I think that it is I will just come to bat for the fact that like sometimes it's easy big just make the leap than net will appear and sometimes it doesn't and you kind of fall on your fucking thing you hear now. Hey, that's a fuel kind of let me got to it. But then you come back, and and you figure, but but I'm saying even now that's part of my ethos is like is it whenever I'm thinking about a big decision. Like, this will work out like, I'll just have the hustle. It's like doesn't always work out that is not a functional place to be to to think it will work out that that's my point necessarily disagree. I always think I always manifest. I don't know. I'm always like it's going to be okay. I'll add like you have to run time. Cape. Real. Time came brillant tweeted and Mrs Anna commented anything one time caper lounge tweeted did you manifest that? Or was it white privilege? I. But Cutie face has white privilege to deface Assam. Cutie Cutie tip. When he got to New York key can stop contact me. I sick. But also, we can also be just befriends have. Let's have Pat read the next one. Okay. Okay. Let me find it. Okay. Here. We go. Here we go and then create a nickname for him. Okay. No. So one to czar Rah Rah Rah Rah. Asks. Decline. The subject line is LOL SOS USA L O L allow low aloe. Ever since two Harry and the set after we did a comedy show, the the two days after they will be election. And then she just kept saying L O L at these people wearing thin safety. Spend. And also met Whitmer Thomas fucking love. Dick. Did they're going to do game show twenty-first in New York. I really want to go. You know, what I was thinking when you said like, I just had this like flash it was like, wow. Like we've been doing this a long time. A long time ago. You guys had Robert needs our help. Hey, folks, digs ups big ups for this idea. Hyphen love any therapy that doesn't dig into my crippling student debt screen go off and slay. How do you how do y'all ads creatives reconcile your desire for fulfilment success and even a certain degree of fame? We don't know what you're talking about artistic ability is not much of a rarity these days. In other words, so many other talented, parental beautiful people out there with brilliant ideas. How do you find the value in your own art slash voice, positively drag us our does this read as a cry for help question? Mark question. Mark live laugh love exclamation point. Keep doing what you're doing Rah. I. I. Get what Russia's though. I think I'm offended. I think rob rubbers asking me, art, art isn't easy. This is the permanence of the much look at it. The premise of the question is that we were not for unique unique talents. No, we are though. He's saying how do you just keep on? I think really the root of this question is when you know that so many people around you are so talented when there is a lot of shit going on out there that is good. And now there's so many channels to put it on how to use stay the course and not get unfo- Roberts asking this for themselves. I mean, they're like, I I think what I'm getting is brought by saying, I know so many talented people and so easy to be seen by people nowadays with soc meat. But like, how do I how do you still make whatever I wanna make space? So I think that's tough. I mean, but I mean, it's another thing where you just do it. You can't let it you. Can't let the scale of things. Yeah. Keep you from from from putting I also I read it more with with all the with all the stuff happening. Sometimes it just feels like more opportunity. Sometimes it feels a competition opportunity, and they also think that I caught shades in Russia's message towards us that it was like like. I news conversations with people who aren't in the field. The biz the industry. They're like it's like people people that enough amounts of being just have so much respect for you kind of like personnel. Pursuing your dreams really going for it. And I'm like, I I never made the decision. Everyone does have an eight artistic ability until to me part of the question is how do you want? Like, why are you choosing to pursue this career? Everyone has it some people other jobs, and and you're like, well, they can do whatever they want. They could do this to like I own. I never made the choice. I truly never any point made a choice to to try do comedy. And and have actively tried to quit comedy many times. And. And so it's just like see I don't know why I'm doing it in they're not. But it's their choice to do it or not like I didn't make you do marketing. You know what? I mean like. Yep. Whatever on addicted deal. I think. I think. I don't know because I just try and I try and not think about I just try so hard to compare myself to the people and just have a psychotic amount of confidence. Even when the world tells me, you shouldn't be that confident which happens all the time. Can I say something that really helps me because I sometimes do fall victim to the thing of compared to? And then you despair when you see someone else like that's really shining like embrace that like if you see like that there's like a video that someone wants to share maybe share it. Maybe like give it a like, maybe tell someone you liked it. Yeah. Honestly that thing that you're afraid of which is someone else's success. You'd be surprised how much you can actually be a part of that. Yeah. You know what I mean? And that's contagious. I think that when you go out of your way, and you you celebrate someone else it only pays off good dividends for you. So this thing that you're afraid of or that, maybe isn't Tim dating to you. Which is like other people starting to pop or like, you know, this thing it's really it doesn't. Exist it, and it's not taking anything from you. And in fact, like you can choose an opt into being positive, and I think that that reverberates in a really good way. Good energy is a real thing. You know, what helps me, and it sounds like it's unrelated I have found that it helps to have like some internal physical anchor in you, and the sense crazy. You mean? Okay. So I've been meditating and one of the one of the guided things for like comp- like for like something will listen to like before you're going to like a creative setting or something like they tell you to like find like a point of focus in your body, and you just breast your focus on that. But for me literally it's from my groin. I feel like I dislike anchor, and they do a cable basically, but it's a mental cable. I'm just like as soon as I tap into that like everything else falls into place. And like I'm on my God. That would make me horny. I think I'd have to lay gerbil. No, no, no. No, no it like it really like as soon as I like like anchor myself into my own Baud. It's something that like no one else can take away from you. It's like, it's something that's only about you. It's like non about your extenuating circumstances. Like find that and yourself whether it's from whether you're going to perform for from your groin or from your shoulder, whatever the fuck. Yes. It has to keep going back to like doing this. Because at the end of the day, I wanted to do this and something meaningful to me in like, and yeah, I think the question about motives in like fame and career and stuff like, I've Reese Chilean last month gun this place where it's not I don't feel need to chase that anymore. I think it's like even just doing the pod. Like having a small little a smaller broadening of my scope like of people. I'm reaching like, it's a huge. It's a huge deal. It was a jump from where it was before the pod. And oh, this is what I wanted like having people know who I am more than even that small thing. I was like, oh, I actually like I don't necessarily like or want this. I just thought I did. And he and then I'm like, oh, I'm not doing it for that. Why we're doing it? Because I like to try to make people out. That's really what it is. I I've had the same realization. It's never been. Actually, I've thought it was about like famous. Attention, and that's been like annoying to deal with. But really like even as like our audience has grown. I've still had this thing which is like how Meghan creatively like fulfil myself. And that's how you're that's when you know. You're a true, creative is it's like, you're still craving something. So this thing of other people it's not necessarily about them. Just celebrate them and find what's going to like make you better. And I was just gonna say the one of the most interesting things I've felt the past few years meeting people on the biz like the most successful people. I've met are the most complimentary to other people they're the nicest like crazy when someone who I think is so successful in talented, like says something nice to me. I'm like you did not have to do that. I think that's why people some people like that get to work so much because there's such a delight. And they bring us good vibe in there. No, I should really happy for other people. And I yeah, I've been trying a lot more lately to really like especially like younger comedians to like give them opportunities and be like, totally can't wait. I I really want him because I was looking to help other people. No. That's the thing about like, I don't think. So Honey is knowing that like, yes, that's fun to be part of. It's like, you know, we give a lot of people like not even opportunity. But it's like, you know, it's cool to know that it's a place where so many people can go there and say they're feeling it's it's really have on. We have a good question right here. Okay. Who's it from this is from three? Giannis Chevy this. All right. Okay. Jeannie passed a lap. Off. How it makes me nervous? Here we go. Hey cap hot Matin Bowen.

Like, I don't have like I mean, I have that one person that I like think about a lot which is Hockey League. But I'm missing like a crush like, I I really like, I don't know. I just missed that feeling of like liking someone in that way. Yeah. I'm coming out of a very deep obsessive crush that. I'm coming. I could tell it's ending. And I'm excited. It's all have some fierce, you feel like you're getting over it or you're like, you're letting it go I think, I'm letting go I think that I just I just I texted Kathy. I've reached the point of reach the point of the obsession, we're I don't even I can't even keep track of if I like the person on it's not about that any more. Pretty intense. Yeah. It's been really intense. It's been one of my most intense ones. And it's I think that I think that I'm just letting it play out. However, it will. And I'm like a piece with one loose end of where I discussed it too much on a podcast, and I'm hoping they can end up things out. But but we need the producers working sixteen hour days in our hands all hands on I texted the team. And I said this is an all hands on deck situation. Clear your week, cancel your obligations. Speaking of to do that with thirty still even with thirty. Homosexuality. We have another question. I'd like we answered what was your what do you look for? Johlene? Also, it would be I think we should just pump for transparency sake often won't say are actual crushes as yet. Right. I mean, come on world down. Yeah. Let's do two more high big fan. Oh, this person is. Grew and grew asks high big fan. Also, could you please tell Patty Harrison and loyal I- Ramirez to release more women smile, please. Yes. Thanks. We'll tell them. Okay question. I'm mad at that one. But I celebrate my friends in the question we learned from George up. Josh. Hi, Emma, gay that hates anal sex. Topping new thing. What do I do? It doesn't necessarily turn me off. I can do either. Fine. I just don't really get anything from it. Everything else is great. Sometimes I feel like a fake gay because of it. Tell me what to do. We have to talk about those. But I have gone through. I've taken a turn in my journey because you both kind of have expressed to me that you didn't love AIn grew. I used to be so secretly closet anti anal. And I was like, it's so messy. It's gross like just. And bub-bubba Oba and then on at a certain point. I don't know if this is like politically to like controversial. There's some there's some level of like, there's some level of internalized, homophobia. They're on some thin level of it. We were like what I do. My sex is disgusting. I don't for me it just fucking hurts. And it hurts. But here's my bottoming exclusively when it's my turn gun some guys there such a thing as a trainer dildo. I bought it's changed. Everything trainer. Tilda? I got a good lube. Just go to your go to a local sex. Shop trainer. You'll do. Good lube and poppers, and like I just clock on my computer, stick it up my ass. Yup. Do poppers. And then I get an I'm like, oh, wait, this is I'm to this. I now I'm link kind of ramping up till like being in Tena do nothing. I want more than to enjoy getting fucked. I really looks great looks so fun and the guys that like it they say it's like being on a wild ride. What I will also say, though, is I think. I love. But I think we're I this question doesn't read to me as a fullback. No, no, not that. It doesn't read to me as. Bottoming being painful it reads to me as a conceptual kind of. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Disconnected to anal sex. But what I will say is. I think that's fine. I think that I'm in a place right now with thirty where. Where like? I think that's fine. You don't have to like anything. I think that. Maybe you'll have to find someone who likes the shit that you like, but everyone, you know, I'm in this place where I talked to someone and they were like a total bottom. And I I generally would probably be that too. But like, but they were like, yeah. This guy. But he's verse. I need a total top. You know, what it's like. And I'm like, well, if you find someone you really like you'll figure out how to get each other off. Thank you. Yeah. Yeah. And if they like you back, and they it's like don't worry about to cooking up. I think. It can become more premium brands how important it is. And how important these roles are in length gun. How important like what the kind of brass tacks of what we do is out to minutely like if you find someone that you really like, and even if you like different things, but you really like each other you will figure out a way to make each other calm, and like don't over think it intersects zero six here. I don't ever think that you have to do like what's in porn. Yeah. That shit is raising so distort like I could never you can't physically do what they do. Because there are also like not they're professionals. They do that they live. They have to be able to perform that way and that sort of like fantasy sex world. And also, I think sometimes there's like some they have enhancements able to do the things that they do. But also this train your dog. And I have to ask you I highly recommend it. But you don't have to you also don't have to have sex. You don't have to partake in it for me. It's just if you if you aren't a place grew if you that you want to arrive at that at enjoying it. Then I would recommend if you're if you're open to bottoming more. Yes. Doing Dan the trainer dildo has were leveled me up to the actual that for long can. Yeah. It sounds like he doesn't even dislike it it. Sounds like glue. Has who? Like, I don't really care. It's not my thing. Yeah. Yes. No. I know I get that. And I get that. I get that about glue. With anal sex thing is like because I don't like the way that we have little intercourse. I sometimes get sad that I will never be able to experience true sexual connection. And I'm just like that makes me very because you because you don't think he's I don't want because I don't I don't know. Like, it's like weird thing when I'm like, my missing out on I I've had sex with element. And it was not connected. There've been there in things that aren't full penetration. That are so much more intimate ducks pleasurable than right. Like, I mean, it doesn't matter. I mean, I'm just thinking of the people I fucked in. Deeply disconnect. Okay. One more so one more. And this was this was a simple fun one. So what's this person's name? Oh, one two three jars I said, Barbara. Barbara says she never ever says. Operas apps will says my favorite thing to do in the world is to go to the movies by myself. I didn't sushi and then have a little cry over the end credits. I even did this during tag, not my finest hour, I guess more functional adult human would seek out other people and try to convince beyond my personality into my body. How do I switch modes from socially anxious and find of snacks to slightly less likely to never need a plus one invite to a formal social events like she's putting pressure on herself. She likes her solitary, gene, Barbara's, gene, Barbara's, evolved. We're all working towards being okay with our solitary say JBC is that I just someone who swings back and forth with the gym. ABC's Barbara too. Teed up our. You just. I'm someone who swings back and forth, and and pendulum in between someone who who isolates very much like we'll we'll not will not respond to emails about hanging out will not make any plans to be alone for an extended prove time. And then sometimes it'll place where I get done. What I have to do for the day, and it would be nice to sleep. I can't just go home and be a half to be around people. And then and then there's that compulsion. And kind of go back and forth being those things. And I think neither one of them is better than the other. But like a balanced healthy. And like if but this sounds like a self care thing that you do once in a while. And it's fine. It's fine. I just think that you don't always be alone. Maybe but you don't have to always be with you. Invited to events is one hundred percents overrated. I don't get invited to shed also whatever I do get invited to shit. Oftentimes, you go to events and even people like Lou home it's not enjoyable on. I've been going I the last three movies I've seen. I went alone to Alamo draft house. These should be seen along. I'm going to to on with me. Is it how yet? Preview. I I think happy that they were so good. I wanna watch alley. It's it's not idea. But I don't honestly. Night. But I like them it. Honesty is not that scary. It really is more of a it's really more of a think piece ended vibe for you because it's at a high. It's at a high college. College which is even more fun because it's rare. It's rare rare ever and Juneja Barbara Zhang's. But it was so good. And I think that they will be so good. Well. Vision Barbara's Zazai, I think you it's Kevin Kevin's completely right? You're evolved. Let me just finish. Yeah. I was going to okay. No, you literally cut it. Stop. You Kevin your evolves for being for finding this comfort like sushi and a cry the end credits. It sounds so perfect. You were really getting to the emotional rawness of who you are on a regular basis. And you know, what what triggers it, and I think you have nothing to you don't even do anything. You have nothing to change. June is your box. This thing June means like like, really like basic, basically with simplistic like so you were using Jesuit ally. Was I was. I was born into my life at the annoyance June. The fact you got your old boss. Powering never told me about June. Will we were close friends kept that for me? He wasn't sure that part of his life with me what any hope one day you ready. Okay. Say to connect, gene. Gina Barbara's is our last question back to one of our first questions, my on-again off-again kind of sister. I kinda fight with e see what was his name be you, see. But I think he was the star of the episodes. I think the manically you can connect it to questions because genome Barbara's has field so much guilt doing things she wants to do alone. That's this place where we need our partners like the same things as us. Oh, we can't just do the things we need to hike. Have our person that were dating. How do people, but on some level, you do to share those thing on some level on some level? It is it adds meeting to the relationship, and I understand it. But there's no requirement like what the compulsion as long as the compulsions and consume all of it. Yeah. Thank you. Can. I just say I saw one more question. That's really good. And then we can we can. Yes. This person asks and this person is named this person person. Is it bad that I want someone who's done me wrong to suffer? Oh, no, not at all. No. But I think it is. It's wrong. I think it's I think it will make you sadder too long. I just I want everyone suffer I want every single person besides me. And I just think that every it's so hard everything is so hard and. Everyone's everyone's in everyone can't live in a place. Where negatively you just can't you're right. You're right to quote, the series finale of HBO's, girls everyone's in emotional pain. Yeah. That's so go ahead. You're going to sit in the haggling. And it's going to hurt you girl, drinking and hoping other person dies. But also, I get I I'm saying this intellectually. But I really do this. We all trapper selves in the thought. But you're right.

40 - Fiction all the way Down
Gentlemen, walking very normal episode on medalists this podcast where me and my housemate Peter Rollins whose of loss for gonna slash theologian has written several several wonderful books. We talk about comedy and talk about philosophy and we talked about life, and we talk about all of these fun things. And it's very nice and thank you for being here. And joining us this is a on location episode. This is the first on location episode we've ever done, and we are currently in in my opinion, the most beautiful city in the world. Las Vegas, Nevada. And I I do love this city in a way that I can't fully comprehend, but it's been very fun trip so far. But that's me speaking, Pete how how're you doing? I'm doing grid. This has been fantastic. Get it felt good. If we're going to talk about things like Las Vegas. We should actually do an episode from Las Vegas trying to end that. That's why we're here we came here because of loyalty to our pharmacists by a loyalty. Yeah. There is definitely. Yeah. But just mostly to me. Yeah. At least come to. Manure everybody big. And also we have an audience today in audience one is pretty similar size to your usual comedy. And I expect as many laughs. Yeah. My good friend is there is. That's exactly what I get. My buddy Curtis is here. And that's in Curtis's, not one of the apart of the podcast because he's just trying to enjoy his Vegas trip right now. He's listening to a podcast about philosophy and religion. So anyway, I felt very weird by the way this morning. I was doing I was reading in casino beside slot machines. I think I looked very strange. I don't think to picture for me, please. Well, I was having a coffee slot machines everywhere I was reading philosophy. And I think people were like on. Sure of what I was holding in my hand. Yeah. Yeah. What was the book that I well, it's actually I was reading the kindle, so nobody could have worked what I? You're a man of the twenty first century. Yeah. I do feel like that is the key. What was the book on the I was reading a couple of different things. I was reading gyco door new the Theodore do and also I was reading a little bit of young. I have to say because as. Because you do sometimes I love the fact that you just like every time you mentioned you. There's just a little bit of a bite to new fun. It didn't want people to hear that thing always really into young. I mean, you has lots of really good things to say, I'm enjoying reading them. But I would love to meet other people who were like anti union and somewhere because I feel like it's you, and you have a very articulate way about you. So it makes sense. That can be like oh Yoon. Okay. That's the problem. He deviated from cycles and many ways, and but other people you're the only person ever met this guy nap anybody else who knows if you go to quote dot com or something. Yeah. Up there, but he just doesn't have not quit on her Stein of the Dr has notion of the unconscious compensator mechanism. I think is a betrayal of the central inside of psychoanalysis where the unconscious is the rupture in reality, it, self, etc. Etc. Joining us today on the the fundamental of everybody. There's been a fun episode. It will be. Shorter episode because. It's what are you gonna be a shorter episode because Elliott just wants to get back to the casino. I'm to try and fight for this to be a good long episodes about to stroll. Okay. Let's paint. You're just gonna walk on. Let me pretend you're here. This courtesy when I leave here, you will only have the idea of me having been your, but listen y-, we you're in Las Vegas, Nevada gambling, Pete. We're having a good time. I'm not trying to spoil anything for our listeners. We like to have a good time. Yeah. I'm up at the moments. Yeah. You're doing great. I have done nothing actually a poker player. So after this probably going play some poker. But last night and today, we've just been planner Ryan and the reliable's for our listeners is being very modest. He's an incredibly good poker player, which actually if you think about it would make sense that is right up here. Your alley if my friends from Belfast heard you say that they would disagree, but I'm not gonna hop. Yeah. I don't know anything that I could say that my friends wouldn't disagree with on though about like me being good at something. So you're in Vegas you wake up. We're hanging out last night. And. Eclectic group of people, and then you head off and you go to sleep rest you wake up in the morning in Las Vegas, Nevada. One of the most disgusting cities in the world and also one of the most fun in my opinion, and you start reading philosophy. Do you think that you have a problem philosophy an addiction? Yeah. Yeah. Well, maybe, but I did I did wanna write little thing on my Petri. It was a little bit of well as I did a little reflection on the Roscoe chapel. What's that? Rothko chapel is incredible chapel in Houston, Texas, you've told me. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And I thought because I'm in it's the opposite of casino. So I kind of wanted to write a byte that while I was in the casino. Yeah. Because it's like sue somber and quiet on. It's just fourteen pictures by Rothko that are all block he painted them. Just before he killed himself in nineteen seventy fun. Yeah. Dark macabre. Well, it felt like an appropriate thing to write a while. I was in Vegas actually one hundred percent feels like an appropriate. Make sure you get the shot of the weed vape pen in the in the picture. We'll edit that part out. No, listen, you're in Vegas you wake up in the what time did you wake up this morning by five thirty day at Pete. God dang it. I really thought you would sleep in new. I did a little bit a lie. That's alive. Maybe got the six six is pretty good. All right. I'm working on a morning person. I just became a morning person. When I hit my mid thirties thirties, I became a became a morning person. Morning is great. But sometimes I wake up, and I'm like, why can't I just rest more? I feel like I've just I'm not I'm not sleeping as much, but in Vegas that might have something but also wake up at the buck of like nine o'clock in the morning, which is absurd which he liked the let the knights year younger than me year, a young pup in comparison to me I like both of them. You know, what I don't think? It's it's like the New York LA battle where people are like, he's one everything you want the child on you won't the career you want it all. I guess you're right. You won't morning on you won't evening. You can't have it. All so you have to compromise. That would bring us anyway. Thank you so much for joining us today on the fundamentalist part. That's the fun anything any media. So what's your? So here's here's what I was thinking about with vehicles Edman, we think about this very famous book, which is famous mostly because it was in the first movie of the matrix trilogy on it's called simulate GRA and simulation. We talked about this is real cool. Okay. I'm excited. All right. Here we go. We talked about this on the podcast though. I don't think. So you literally told me about and I'm like, okay. This is a good one. Yeah. So I'm excited here. I will stop talking. Now, everyone is breathing a sigh of even hot tireless. Yes. Laar route this book simulate grins simulation on the idea in the book in a nutshell is that a simulator is a copy of something. But it's a copy of something that doesn't exist. So mostly when you have a copy of something it's a copy of something that exists, right? If I copy a book, there is an original book my copy, the food or copier, whatever the print is a copy of an original. But a simulator is a copy of a copy, it's a copy with light unoriginal. Sue, for example. I think courtesy to give me this example yesterday occurs. Our live studio audience round of applause. And. And we're back rip Bach. You have like the Gulf father trilogy the trilogy. I don't know. This is the example of using because I think it's one of the coolest things in the world. And if it's going where is that? Right. Yeah. I'm so excited. Well, it's a copy in a sense of organized crime. Hi, yes. Hi, these mall bosses were organized crime works. But really actually it was more of a Hollywood reinterpretation of high mobsters yet live in oct- that actually influenced Harvey mobsters live not so cool. Yeah nuts. Yeah. Its literal life imitating. Art, exactly. So you have an image. I similar with. I think they've had to do this with police officers that people tend to hold guns the way you see it in movies. So you see police officers guns and movies that I don't think is technically maybe it's different live a lot of the old movies. It's not the way will come. Then you have police officers mimicking Levi's uncaring. Gums like it is in the movie. So the copy that is supposedly a copy of high the police do things actually turns I'ts influence do things. Or for example, something that's in Hollywood whenever you should somebody. They fold on. Now, I've been reliably informed when you should somebody. They generally don't fold on you get shot, and you just out there. You don't even knew you've been shopped for a while, you know, you looked on. But then what happens is people. Nice start to fall when they've been shot because you've seen it in movies. Yeah. Now, that's that psychological. Like, real good stuff. Real. Like, I watched them over the holidays. We've talked about a little bit. I'm sure on a previous episode. But I watched the push with my parents dole. Yes. Yes. Darren Brown, and I highly recommended as well as sacrifice, I think it will. But. Yeah. It was like a psychological thing. The priming the training like whatever. So you see people fall down. I know if I got shot hundred percent, I would be like, I guess I'm supposed to fall down. Now. Like I do. I bet. Yeah. It like weirdly reality can can coffee father Sahan. So the thing that boo drillers talking by he he mix very interesting comments. I mean, he won't said that the Gulf war didn't exist, and we left to right, right. Yeah. On what he kind of meant was that in a sense. It was a spectacle. It was a spectacle for the people watching. But even weirdly for the performance almost. Yeah. An even for the people in it. So again, I don't know if this is true. I saw documentary that how the Senate that soldiers would be played rock music in Tyke during a firefight. I'm kind of basically turning the whole thing the type of video game. So it's not the Gulf war. Didn't exist, of course it existed. And of course, real people died. There was real har- butts this strange kind of like virtual reality dimension to the to the war insisted. But a core. This is argument. This is not as argument what I'm gonna do is. I'm gonna give you what he doesn't say. The I'm excited. I heard somebody last year. Give talk about marriage relationships that do I was there on he was trying to use driller in his talk. He was arguing that. What you have today is Marge's were everybody's doing very kitsch stuff. You know, if you're here in via gives you get married by Elvis or you have an incredible dress. That's kind of old loose like a a a wedding dress on steroids. Everybody everybody, but there's more and more desire to create this crazy Fum kitsch type of wedding, right? This guy was saying the problem is is that these are per imitations of real weddings, a real wedding is a real thing. Where people commit for life. Right. He was bemoaning this that really what we're doing is for creating these really terrible copies in secular world of what real Marge's? But. Yeah. Booder Laura saying the exact opposite of oak. Buju LARs is basically saying that there is new real March. Right marriage is a social construct. It's something that we've created socially. Right. But it is the the puppies that actually make you believe there is a real March that exists. So it's the fact that you get married by Elvis, and you do all of these things and you jump out of an airplane while proposing or whatever that that actually lead you to suspect or believe that there is a real thing called Mars that Marge is something that is not just a social construct in one other example, this brings me to vehicles year is people think that via is a fake world. So you Gouda vehicles because it's vehic it is a kind of a copy of lots of different buildings that existed around the world, it is kind of this escape from reality. But Bootle are would be more likely to say new the purpose of vehicles, ideologically is to convince you that your other life is real. So. By having Feerick world, like Las Vegas you. Then think that your job on your family, and the way you live your life. The other three hundred fifty five days of your year that you're not in Vegas is some high real but Buddha lawyers Curtis good shit. She could God. Yeah. So what happens is bothering me. I'll I don't like it. So I allegedly speaking Vegas once very conservative, please. Because what it does is at solidifies the belief that the rest of your life is real that you have to kind of do it actually giving me a nightmare right now. Yeah. The rest of your life is a type of social reality. And social reality means, it's real it's real because it's socially construed. I mean, I I feel like in my personal life that my life is such that I can kind of relate to what you're saying. But only because I feel like. Certain. I guess when I when I come I because I do love so much for those of you who don't know. I have a real problem with this town. I don't care that it sucks. I know that it's, but I just love it. And I don't care if I'm betting whatever or doing whatever is for some reason being in this town. I love it very much. And I do think it's somewhat related to the absurdity of it and the weirdness of it. And it makes me feel like the absurdity and the weirdness that I have in my Los Angeles life is tepid compared to the fact that I can come here. And I don't know drink outside is actually not like Vegas in that. Crazy, not there's not really that. Many. Like, I don't do debaucherous things when I'm here. But it's enough just being here's enough for me to go back and go like, okay. This is just me being like, I don't know if that's related to it is totally. It's funny. Because like, I don't think this is the kiss with you. You didn't met something you said there was very much booed rely type new Shelley. You're that something I said there was a real boater Larr. Types want to be involved with specifically I knew I love the fact that he said specifically at the beginning of this, please do not hold me. Please do not in any way involved in this horror ship is we lose track. I'm first of all I'm on a lot of things. But I definitely tell you that being on a microphone in talking into. It is not a it's not registering with me in any kind of way. But anyway, let's sorry, Chris, and I won't mention you again Curtis. But what you mentioned there is in the sense that that what it does is it anchors like whenever someone goes to VA weirdly me the rest of their life seen normal. I curse the rest of your life. At in fairness, if you see the people walking around Vegas, you can definitely tell that. When they go home ever normal lives the. Oh, yeah. Like, I would argue that the people who have the most fun Vegas or the people who have the weirdest lives. Elsewhere the weirdest lives. Elsewhere. I think so. Yeah. Because there's there's a lightness to how absurd all this. But I don't know, man. There's something about Vegas. I do love it. But it's a. Sad part of it, which is people who are here. And there's this very kind of like somber just like, I don't know, man. There's like a dead nece. There's a real kind of its zombie land a little bit. But my my hunch would be I think like the people you're talking about. I think are often people who are maybe even living in Vegas. But my hunch would be that actually the majority of people here in Vegas are very conservative lives that are actually quite oppressive to them. And so because the more the more you're enjoying your life, and you come to Vegas not to get away from your life the difference. You're not doing it to get away. A lot of people come to Vegas to escape from the Monday in their life. But what happens is then laws you'd have a couple of weeks off, and then you have to pockets it. And I think booed Larwood wanna say new your life is at self type of fiction on if you had no it's that then you can start to go. Well, maybe I could she maybe I could change it. Maybe my life. Isn't just the real as in thoughts. What I have to do. But but maybe my life. I calm mold to certain extent. My Moussaif's count do very easily dust tree. I'm not saying it's easy to do. Like money is a social reality. In other words, money doesn't objectively exist. Money is just the confrontation of volume money is such a social reality to call. It a social reality. I have no attachment. I like it money is as real as anything is going to be like money, isn't real. It's like, yeah. I mean, that's the weird. Like, it's your right? But like one hundred percent, but there's no real way to enact that. Yeah. Well, that's what Sushil realism is. It's it's weirdly that money isn't real. But it's the most real thing because it means eat you'll be homeless if you don't have it. But but the barrier between the real and the yet I mean on it's a social it's because we all and the Naro create a kind of call it like social contract where we believe in the value of money. But that is a subjective belief that then influ. Nces influences Hoy at work were you preparing this whole thing. Because you're bringing so much more to the podcast. Then I I'm not gonna mention anybody. But this did you prepare this this locked and loaded. I got Bulger there for a second. I'm sorry. Curtis. Very offensive, right? I don't like saying there's certain Lord's name in vain that I have no problem site for servers was Jesus I feel bad. But anyway, you're gonna put more in the tip jar. Yeah. This jar Chrysler. But anyway, yeah, man, how did you? What this come from? We didn't even we barely talked about this. Yeah. Well, you were just going like less less than a thirty minute will get box. You were like, well, here's an hour and a half of things on back. I'm still reeling from what you said about marriage what where that came from or what how to relate to it. But it didn't make me made me feel something. I don't know what it was. But I felt a little. And I'll get tell me about, you know. Yeah. Like talking about like the copy becomes the real. And then the marriage thing becomes you see that it's a real. But he wouldn't do it. But you do it. Then when you do it becomes real. Yeah. Something in that somewhere, bashed quagmire felt bad. Well, that's that's why things like Universal Studios. Disneyland not kind of thing are are kind of conservative in the sense. They actually solidify the belief that there is something that is the way things should be so mired because March is a social creation that that that we as a community is a way to try to navigate the impossibility of like what you're saying is society. Is literally built on like a house of cards like everything. None of this stuff is real. But then when you start doing without it. You don't have all the fun stuff that comes from perhaps marriage, or perhaps all the other things in society. Like, I feel like my I mean, I could be wrong. But I feel like society is a species going. Okay. Let's just kind of like, maybe let's do this. And we're going to keep things kind of tight because this is of we like, I I don't know. There's something about it that I think is. Yeah. After on the window. Yeah. And the weird thing is it's not even that reality is structured or exists because we believe in at a more fundamental level it works because we believe that other people believe it. So for example, take an example of you here. There's going to be a water shortage and LA on. You're like, oh my goodness. Right. I don't even know if it's true effect. I don't believe it is true. This is just a rumor just a rumor that there's going to be motor shortage. But then you go hold on a second. Even though it's not true. If people start believing it's true they're going to start filling their boss with water. They're going to start kind of like trying to who would water, and if everyone starts to hoard water water shortage, and if there's a water shortage on I don't hoard water, I'm screwed. So I need to hoard water. Not because I believe there's a water shortage. But because I believe that other people might believe there's a water shortage creates a water shortage. If you could just say hoard water thous-. Times. I would listen to that. I actually would freely with. Washer hord water. I didn't hear anything you said after the second horrid water. But it, okay. So it really tickets stock exchanges. And example, if you hear a rumor that there is a certain stock that is going to crash a new us just a rumor you it's not true. It's not connected to the reality of business. But then you think other people might believe it's true. And then you have other people believe it's true. They're going to sell lots dot stock was better sell it quickly the nature of a rumor is that other people already believe that. It's true. So like, you wouldn't believe a rumor and go, well, it's probably not true. But other people believe therefore, I believe Ugo. So so stock is going to go down. Okay. Well, if I'm hearing that other people must be saying that and so like, a new you could conceive of Rimmer going around where literally nobody believes we're somebody cynically starts the Rimmer annuity actually believes remember it was like, I don't think stocks going. To course, not. I don't think I'd. But then everybody's going by county the risk because if other people believe it than I'm scripts white better cell FOSS. And then everybody sells FOSS and then the stock market dolls crush. So all on the only point I'm making is weirdly, social reality is not simply constructed on our social police social reality is structured on the belief that other people believe it. Okay. Yeah. I got something. Right. We'll see how it goes. You're a psycho analyst your billion psycho announced just into it. Yes. I'm not tree and psychoanalyst, of course, just theoretically tree and not practically trained, of course, you have more who has the time. You are a at sounds to me. I I was talking with some of my relatives over the holidays. Let's say it was my brother and sister in law, and we know that Mika anonymous, let's say with some relatives talking some strangers, and they were talking about the books that my sister-in-law had, and we got really into the conversation of like, you know, self help and meditation and sort and then of course, like when I was and all that kind of stuff which is like a hard sell right out of the gate. But anyway, we were I was again. Selby you to endure it for self help to work you have to not hit yourself, and you have to know one to self sabotage. That's a hard. That's a hard thing to even get your head around the idea that I wouldn't even want the best for my over up opposite. Actually, you don't really want. Yes. I mean, if you do if you're a healthy person self-help might be very useful. But if you do want the best for yourself, then self help as you're going to find ways to self sabotage self every time, and then part of that will be reading self help books that you guessed if you're so but point is we were talking about like all this stuff. I know like life is whatever we're all whatever, we're all these little whatever. But the profundis thing I think you've ever said, that's my this is my end. Can I write that? I think all this stuff points in the same direction. It sounds like what you're kinda saying is. Like, a certain there's a certain like it reminds me of the secret where it's like, you say, you say, you say, you say it out loud, you manifest it. Which is of course, you would go. We'll that's that stuff that you're not super into which is fine. But it kinda still sounds the same way on the societal level. We all were like marriage marriage marriage is marriage. And we have a society, we have a society. And then we all kind of we're like, okay. And now, we have a society. I'm not saying there's a mystical element to it. But it's interesting that every that it's all points back to somebody being like this. And then the result being whatever was sad. Not the thing that is resulting on there is there's there's affect, but there's no truth. Basically in everything he said, the real is rational, we on the rational is real which means that pretty much if something exists or something rational in it, otherwise, it wouldn't exist. Like, there's new a four sided triangles in the world, right because a con exist. So this. Secret doors is rational, and the rashes, and yeah, so anything that is is because it can be I can see that in conversations. We've had that you internalize that on some level. Because there's when we talk about politics, we talk all this stuff. Like, you have a uncanny ability to look at basically any viewpoint and be like, no, this is this make sense and somewhat like this is what's happening it gets into. That's when we get into the, you know, more pop culture type stuff, I guess. But like, it's really, yeah. Yeah. No. It's an interesting notion. I think is is. I think it is star that I navigated because as you said are like, oh, that's why I've heard you say that type of thing which is beautiful way of looking at because it's so it's so non-judgmental it. So just like, there's whatever you're saying. Yeah. You have a reason for that. Which is such a beautiful idea. And we could all get along a lot better records. He's. He's. The secret house like a real cut. There's an insight there, and I don't think it's what is on the surface. But there is a of Oviously there is something about high ideas form, and forge our social reality. That is on sociology is basically the discipline that studies. L very beautiful. I would like not do this anymore. Yep. We're will start to wind up. I think so. I would like to go not be talking to a microphone anymore. I don't think I should be recorded. I I actually heard myself talking second ago it was like realty. I think this is great. I think this has been a really it's actually been really good. Yeah. What we do. We kind of wind up Nive at potentially potentially. Maybe not do another short one before we leave Las Vegas, and then either put them together or put it next week. We'll effiency man. Yeah. But we take away thing. Yes. Might take away. What? Beautiful the my takeaway is purely. I really enjoy finding out the core foods officle like under the the scholarly kind of reference that you have that makes me able to make better sense of the things that you say so that Hengel, quote is very nice. And I think that. Okay. And I enjoy that part of it. That's my very dice and big as wonderful and beautiful. And I I'm going to go. We're gonna have a great time. We're gonna have good time mighty away on an rely in light of this stuff. I guess is that that reality is potentially more Malia than we think our world our way of being on if something if we are not enjoying our life. Our life is sucking of dry on. We are depressed. It's not necessarily some bad that you have to escape for a week by going vehicles and then go back into, but actually does malleable as as a fiction, it is a type of fiction, and it's a fiction that has real par obsolete. But it's one that you count potentially move into something we shit. What does this come from? I know. Damn Pete would go, man. Holy crap. That's so good. I totally agree. What a beautiful. Thank you. This is the best pockets we've ever done well was recording. Because I think you've you've been having a couple of drinks some worried that you didn't press record in word. I didn't press record about seven times during this bucket. Let's see here Yemen. And we're right at half an hour open. Nice tight podcast people. We're right at half and Harr which is right at half, the halfway point whatever we don't get paid for this shit who get paid for this except you should go to wink dot com, and by our communion wine, not even the euro. But yeah, exactly from the work at I guys, you can I believe you can find the information. And if you try try wing dot com slash fundamentalists. It might be the right without also. Whatever. And what a great podcast him so excited about this one. Thank you. I really loved it. I thought it was fantastic. And I love being here amount of love the invited me to this. Ain't you? I love that. I'm sharing in this. I know it's beautiful. The wind and thank you to make you to use times where I've been as you've said on this podcast. I've been a little bit reclusive hibernating a lot. And so drew dragging me. I to Vigo's is definitely I think was good for me dragging Vegas promptly kind of a bad. I may not say tomorrow. Yeah. No. It's a good thing. We're gonna get. All right. Thank you. Everybody thinking. Thank you Bye-bye.
