May I just say was my jam. She was my favorite I was dating a young lady at the time named Christina. Sharkey I made her marriage, a blige mix tapes, and now we're married happily with two children. So Mary, J, it's a huge assist on my entire life. She's huge. She's big for me. So I finally got a chance to interview or sit down with her. Not exactly the way I would have drawn it up because we're in our respective backyards sitting outdoors but we are drinking a little wine. I should point out. It's the morning not going to lie about that a little bit before noon she has a line of wines called Sun. Goddess winds there now. So we opened a bottle of each Thursday, a Rosaiah Nso vignon blank, and you know what we did. We did what people do with a hot summer day. We toasted drank a little wine and talked about her career.

"No, I don't, I don't know what it was probably a bigger check that, that would be my guess. Much better as ten episodes, because then you down into each character in what they can do that. I wouldn't want them to squish that all into a two hour movie. No, they would have cut. Now. They would cut out a lot of that. So I know. And that's I think that it's much better served as a ten episode arc here, they probably also might have done a different story from the comic then what they did here. The they diverged drastically from the from the comics already Heisel on Chacho didn't even show up at this point in the comics yet. And so, so drastic, some great word, I mean, great names. Whichever one of you has has a child next should name, one of your children Hazel or cha-cha be no worse than naming them to neares-, and I will be completely honest. I had no idea that was Mary J Blige Intel at I mean, now that I look at it, I'm like, it's totally marriage able Like likes. I know she looks like a white, dude. It's weird. But. No, I agree. I didn't recognize did like half not even halfway probably like, I don't I guess there's only ten episode so maybe halfway. I was like, wait a minute. Why does she I kept thinking she looks so familiar. And then I thought she was just an actress that I recognize but no, she's Mary. J Blige tonight, was totally dumb not to recognizer. And I didn't actually realize it was her until I started doing, like, like looking at the character, so I can remember their names and stuff like that. And looking at the cast list in preparation for this podcast that I realized that was. Season. You couldn't remember their names one to. Hey, don't forget for. The only one that doesn't have a name is five. All right. Everyone else has a name. So the idea behind that is that he ran away before the mom gave them Nate gave him a name, right? I have no idea why that would be. So it doesn't make sense to me that I, I think what happened in the in the continuity of the show is they didn't take on names until they quit superhero ING, and he ran away while they were still superhero ING, oh, I thought in the show that might be true for the comic book. But in the show they, there's like a scene where they say, like you didn't even. Our dad didn't even give us names. Mom had to be the one to give us names. Right. And I think that happened after after he took off to the future. See in my head. I thought, yeah. Isn't that what I said? Yeah. That's exactly what you said. Okay. Gas let you know that at all. No, I have enough men in my life, the gaslight me, let's not more. So Mary, J Blige as long as we're talking about her. She gave an interview, and she said that she had to go to really bad places to get into the mindset of cha-cha, who was, so empty inside. I don't even want to know what she meant by really bad places. Like I've hoping she means like maybe physical places, but I'm pretty sure it was a mental head space thing. She was in. She was in nocturnally. Relag always. Oh, nocturnally. Daikin alley is a great place. No diagonally. Can you tell can you tell that I watched Harry Potter all weekend because they had a Harry Potter weekend for Memorial Day weekend. They always do they always do. I know. So. Here's, here's something I don't know. I mean, the vibe and the aesthetic of it was pretty clear. But the modern technology didn't exist in number kademi. And I thought that was pretty cool. The actor said that they polluted the world without technology, which is good because we know why that is is that just a just a choice by? Yeah. I think that was just a choice..
