"So that's where it stands right now. Like nobody knows who is behind it still to this day. It is crazy.

I'm going to go with I'm going to go with the Allman brothers eat a peach. I don't know if this is true, but it's fun. Okay. I wanted to talk about when Josh talked about the almond brothers band factoid. Because I think it's actually a cool factoid. Dwayne Allman was once asked by a reporter what he was going to do for the war effort in Vietnam and his response was I'm going to eat a peach for peace. Duane died not long after that album and eat a peach was released posthumously. So he contends, Jesse gaudette, that that is where the album title came from. And they eat a peach was not eat applied.

"You watch it? Are you talking to me? No. Oh, okay. And I was looking at you. I'm guessing that people did watch. So a few people did smart ones did because this is really tough to describe, and we're going to try, but it's something you really have to see yourself in here. It's genuinely disturbing, sitting in an office, years later watching it. And I can imagine if I was at home, I would have probably been a little freaked out. You found a disturbing? Yeah, I found it hilarious. In like a really juvenile way. Yeah, it creeps me out. It was like watching David Byrne on acid at a talking head show. That's what I think of when I saw that. You know? All right, so let's describe the scene here. Okay, so you got max headroom. Well, actually a dude wearing a rubber mask. A rubber Halloween mask of max headroom. Yes. And this is just genius to me. So you've mentioned earlier about how the max headroom had like these kind of grid lines behind them at all times and they kind of moved and adjusted and they were different colors. To simulate that, these guys had like a piece of corrugated metal, shiny metal. Yeah. And I guess they had an attached somehow to something that rocked it back and forth. And they kind of somebody was clearly rocking it back and forth here or there radically. And it really does a good job of it gets the point across. That it looked like the mech sodium TV show. Yeah, the back and the character. Yes. But again, I would say that this person was very, very clearly on acid. Well, I think what disturbs me, I need to make it clear. It is definitely funny and stupid. But what disturbs me is the sound of the voice, which is all garbled. It's really like on YouTube. It has subtitles, thankfully, because it's hard to make out. And a lot of times it just says, you can't understand what he's saying or whatever. And the garble quality and just the random, weirdness that's going on. It's not like it was creepier to me than if V for vendetta dude had to come on, Guy Fawkes had to come on and said, you know, we are coming into your thing to tell you this about this. Right. This was just so weird and all over the place. It was creepy to me. Yeah, yeah, I see what you mean. Like you're watching somebody's nonsensical. Somebody's brain slightly damaged. Touching somebody lose their mind. Right, okay. Yeah. Totally get that. And here's what the guy did that would make you feel like he lost his mind. This is the weird thing to me. It's very targeted toward WGN, right? Almost so much so that some people would say, this is clearly somebody who I had a grudge against WGN. He makes fun of the bulls sportscaster, the guy who works for WGN at the time. He makes reference to how he just made a masterpiece for the greatest world's newspaper nerds, which was a messed up version of WGN's call letters stand for world's greatest newspaper. He wields a rubber penis. Yeah, that's one. Although it was great, and almost every article it was referred to as a marital aid. Did you see that? No, but I actually guessed it on Strickland's tech stuff like four years ago. And we covered this and I called it a mere laid. Did you? Okay, so I wanted to keep it clean. Sure. But then I realized that saying the word penis is okay. Well, it's clinical. I mean, we did a puberty episode surely. We have the chops to say penis. But marital aid is hilarious, especially in this context, like this crazy dude on acid wearing a max headroom mask has a marital aid. No, he doesn't. That's not what that is in that context, you know? Yeah, and that's a new T-shirt, by the way. What? We have the chops to say penis. So that's a band name. Let's go ahead and use some of the, let's go ahead and say some of the direct quotes. So he comes on and he goes, he's a freaking nerd. I think I'm better than chuck's worst guy, freaking liberal. That's a really good impression of this. And chuck schwarze was the bold guy. Yeah, the sports announcer. And this is a time too when the bulls were, this is the Jordan Pippen era still. It will still be at the beginning of it. Was it 87? I thought it was like in the middle of it. Was it the beginning? Pretty early ish, let's say. I wish these days that I would have been more cognizant. And more into basketball and I am now. See, that's what I was the most into it was bird Jordan magic. I really like to watch some of those games. That was good stuff. Because that's when the hawks were good back then. Yeah, back then. Dominique. Hey, shout out to Kent base more. You know, he listens to this show. No way. Yeah, he's a fam. How'd you find that out, Twitter? Yeah. That's great. Yeah. Man, I love bass. I know. How do you not love bees? He's awesome. Man, he's bright red right now. That's so cool. All right, so chuck's worse, he's freaking liberal. He's wielding the rubber penis. The marital aid. The marital aid, he drops that, then he picks up a new Coke while you can't really tell if it's a Pepsi. Oh, was it? Okay, I couldn't really tell. He picks up a can. But he says, catch the wave, which is the new Coke slogan, right? Then he starts humming, it's so random. Then he starts humming the theme song to the 60s show clutch cargo, which is weird in and of itself. Sure, that's that one where it's like animation, but for the mouths it was just like a human mouth moving. That's disturbing. Yeah, if you've seen Pulp Fiction, with the scene where Bruce Willis was a kid and Christopher Walken comes in with the wristwatch scene that clutch cargo is playing on TV when he's watching it. Right. But it is weird looking. Right. So you would say why did you do the clutch cargo theme? Well, again, this is a WGN thing and apparently that's where you saw it. As a kid, yeah, in Chicago. Okay, so he says, also, your love is fading. I still see the X, which apparently is something from the last episode of clutch cargo. Yeah, that was the big X or something. And then he says what you're talking about earlier. I just made a giant masterpiece for all the greatest world newspaper nerds. But he should have said world's greatest newspaper nerds. WGN. Right. Which you might find confusing as I did too, but apparently the Chicago Tribune company owns WGN TV. So they called themselves world's greatest newspaper TV. Right. WGN. It's all coming together. Ipso facto. There you go. Then finally, toward the end, the camera cuts to a different angle. This one has the dude bent over with his bare butt hanging out. His face is now offscreen, but he's holding the mask still out like his head is in it, but it's not. A person, I say woman, but I don't know, but a person in an Annie Oakley dress. Is that what it was, I didn't get that. Yeah, it looked like a Prairie bonnet ensemble. But the bonnet kind of hides the face. So you don't know if it's a man or a woman. Okay. And they are spanking the bare butt with a fly swatter. Right. And he's worried about them coming to get him. They're going to get me. And then he says, come get me and uses a bad word. B word the B word. And then it goes back to Doctor Who. Yeah. Just like when it came in, went out. And it's gone. Can you imagine seeing that live? And while the people who saw it live, the next thing they would have heard was the doctor saying something like, oh, he died of an electric shock must have died instantly. Yeah. And everybody's just sitting there like their mouths hanging open. Well, those Doctor Who too, so it was probably a bunch of Chicago nerds watching PBS. Yeah. So all right, my invitation was okay, but let's just play at least like a couple of lines from the

"Wasn't a CGI version of a guy. It was a guy acting like he was a CGI version of himself. Right, which is why if for instance, if max headroom, the character were to appear on, say, David Letterman, which he did, it would be Letterman interviewing a TV screen. Right. Which is what they did. But it was actually Matt Frewer in another studio. He was probably just backstage. And it's really like, as a kid, I did not get all this. No, I just thought it was a, I didn't really know what it was because I had never seen the show. I thought he was the Coke guy. Right. And I think I'd seen the show a little bit. I was like, this is way too grown-up for me. But I think I just kind of took it on faith that he was computer generated or something like that. I didn't really think about it much, but now as an adult looking back, I'm like, that is brilliant and really difficult. And the fact that they did this and pulled it off as well as they did. It's a pretty amazing thing, right? And you can kind of understand how max headroom with all that information now. Became this kind of cult icon. Especially among cyberpunks at the time. And it just keeps saying cyberpunk. So let me, I'm not particularly well versed in what constitutes cyberpunk, but it's like pornography to a Supreme Court Justice. I know it when I see it, right? Sure. So if you watch the max headroom show, you're like, that's cyberpunk. RoboCop is supposedly cyberpunk, right? It's like a bleak technological future where people are controlled by almost down to their minds by the government or some corporation or some amalgamation of the two. That's pretty cyberpunk, right? So at the time, you had what are called geeks and nerds. But they are not really what you would call the geek or a nerd today, right? Somebody who wears glasses that don't actually have prescription glass in them. Do people do that? That's some people do. I did that in the fourth grade. Well, then you were a geek, apparently. No, I was a prep and I wore those little tortoiseshell round preppy glasses because that was a cool look. And actually when it's one of my least proud moments fashion wise is actually bought fake glasses and wore them around for a while. You have photos of this? I'd really have to dig through some boxes. I think I speak for everyone when I say you start digging. Dig. Yeah, it was not my proudest moment. Yeah. I'd like to see that picture. All right. So at the time, people who were geeks and nerds, that whole culture was very much derided and pushed around. I mean, look at revenge of the nerds, right? Exactly. They came out on top. I watched a little bit of that just the other night. This is probably the earliest celebration of nerd culture. It was not something that was like venerated or subscribed to by anyone who wasn't a genuine nerd or geek, and these were a very rarefied group of people who really knew what they were doing with computers at a time when almost no one else did. Yeah, early adopters across the board. Very much so, right? So max headroom's kind of a cult hero to this guy. And that kind of sets up what happened on November 22nd, 1987. In a little town called Chicago, Illinois. The city of industry. City that doesn't ever sleep. Never. The windy city, that's it. There you go. Of all time. The windy city of all time. Yeah, so that sets the stage. We know who the character of max headroom was, then at 9 14. Wait, wait, wait. Yes? Are you sure I set the stage? I think so. Did we set the stage folly here? It looks nice. All right, let's do it. So at 9 14 p.m. on that November night in Chicago, four days before Thanksgiving. Yeah. So everyone was in that frame of mind. Right. Put yourself there. I think that that helps a lot. It helped me at least. Sure. Football seasons going on. Yeah, as a matter of fact, just that very day, the bears had beat the Lions. Yeah, which was a long time ago. Because the bears want to football game. Oh, ouch. I know. The people in the windy city of all time are not going to be happy with you for that. Oh, and there's a sportscaster on local channel 9, Dan roan. ROA in, and he was, he was going over the highlights of that football game. Then all of a sudden, right in the middle, the broadcast signal goes, it makes those noise, noises, and then over at WGN, the control room, they were like, what's going on here? We have no idea what this is. I think the exact quote was a what? So what happened was they eventually, the way they were doing at the time was, and this is how we're not going to go into the weeds here on how broadcast signals work. But what they did back in the day was they broadcast microwave transmissions to antennas at the top of the tallest buildings of whatever city that they were in. For local TV for local TV, which is I mean, there was cable at the time, but it local TV still kind of ruled. Yeah, and sort of in the late 80s. Right, so starting to segue to the cable. Yeah, for sure. Cable is kind of a thing, but if you were a local TV station, you still have pretty big market share. For sure. Especially WGN in Chicago. I mean, it's like Chicago station, right? Absolutely. So I think you're saying is that in a studio, whatever they're recording or shooting or playing on their little video tapes. They're beaming that from the actual studio to a transmitter say atop a very tall building. And then that just kind of bounces around to other transmitters. And that's how everybody in Chicago gets their WGN signal, right? Right. So all of a sudden, during this sports cast, it skits us out, and then all of a sudden you see a. Guy in a suit wearing a max headroom mask, and there was no audio. That was, I guess, the problem with this first intrusion. That's called a broadcast intrusion. Yeah. But you couldn't hear anything, but I'm sure it was certainly distressing to a viewer to see this kind of weird thing happen. Especially a viewer who wanted to know what the heck happened between the bears and the lions that day. Sure. And the whole thing lasted, I think like 11 seconds or some very short amount of time. Yeah, this was a short one. Before the WGN engineers went and switched to the backup transmitter and I guess transmitted on a slightly different signal and brought the broadcast the sportscaster back on. And Dan roan was like, if you're wondering what just happened, so am I right. There's a chuckle in between. I wasn't going to do my impression of it. But it's good. You should watch it. Like somebody just go look it up. Right, so federal investigators, the FCC that is, was called in to investigate what technically is, well, not technically it's a crime to do so. And then just a few minutes later, they thought, well, this is probably coming from inside the building.

"40 minutes into the first hour long episode. But when he does, it's dynamite. So what are we talking about? We're talking about max headroom. That's right. Huge shout out at the beginning of this to buy dot com, specifically motherboard, specifically Alex pasternak. Yeah, who wrote the article on motherboard, and we actually used to blog a little bit for them back in the day. Remember that? Yeah, I don't think they like to talk about that or acknowledge it publicly. I don't think so. Oh, I think it was mutually beneficial. I'll bet you can't find those on motherboard anymore. I'm trying to remember. I'm sure they were like, I think I won about driving a stick shift versus automatic or something weird. That's a big one. Yeah. We started out with an old fashioned recipe, I think. Yeah, that was you. They were like, let's do better than this, guys. And we said no. And then they said, we got our own people. Yeah. Well, let somebody come in and ghost right for you. Yeah, so that motherboard article was the basis and from what I found. I mean, we used a lot of different sources on this, but this article entitled the mystery of the creepiest television hack is sort of the culmination like the coup de grace coup de grace? Sure. Of max headroom incident articles. Yeah, it actually really good job. Pasternak very exhaustively investigated it and turned up new information, got new, a new understanding of it. And basically contributed to the mythos of it himself. So way to go, pasternak. Right. And what we're talking about is if you don't know who max headroom at all is, we're about to set that up. Yeah, let's talk about max headroom. But if you were alive during the 1980s, then you probably know who max headroom is because weirdly for a brief few years, it was kind of a big pop culture thing. About four years by my calculations. Yeah. So starting in 1984, there was a movie called max headroom colon, so you know his important movie. 20 minutes in the future. Yeah. Right? And it was a kind of a cyberpunk movie. Dystopian future, very Terry Gilliam, Brazil ish. And I haven't seen that one, but it was basically where the character of Mexico was born, right? Yeah. And I think it actually formed the basis for the TV show later. In between the later TV show that you and I are more familiar with. And that movie, max headroom was a pop culture sensation. He was a pitchman for new Coke. No, man. I went and watched an old ad. He was in an ad with run DMC pitching new Coke, and I was like, it doesn't get any more 80s than this. But it was actually a pretty cool ad, right? Was it did it say, here's a little story a need to tell about a new Coke on the scene that he loves so well. That was exactly word for word, how the ad went. Yeah. So let's back up a little more, right? Okay. Let's describe what Mexico moves for the kids. 'cause I guarantee it about 80% of our audience are like, what's the 80s? What's new Coke? Yeah. Who's run DMC? Well, that's probably not true. But so what was max headroom? He was billed as the first virtual talk show host, right? Correct. Okay. Yeah, so he was played by a guy named Matt Frewer who out of prosthetic makeup had that look anyway, very chiseled square jawed. He was not bald, but had, was he balding, had very short he had a receding hairline. Okay, but he kept it really, really short. So he kind of looks bald. Yeah, here this will explain it to all the kids at home. He was a colleague of Murphy Brown on the Murphy Brown television show. They're like, oh, that guy. Not the painter. The other one, the love interest. I don't think I knew that. I never watched Murphy Brown though. Oh man, I hope it was him. I'm pretty sure it was him. Yeah, yeah. Well, he's been around. He's still acting today. Sure. But yes, he played the character of max headroom. And the TV show max headroom was actually pretty far ahead of its time tonally speaking. Yeah. So the whole premise of the TV show, the last his big last great gasp. Yeah. That was actually the most serious of all of it was where in the future, TV networks controlled the world. Yeah. And the station that network 23 that Matt brewers character and later max headroom who became his alter ego worked for, we're putting these things called blip verts out. Yeah, his character's name was Edison Carter at first. Right. And he was like an investigative journalist. Yeah. So he starts looking into these blip farts because the problem with blip forts, they are 32nd ads compressed into three seconds. And it's meant to keep you from changing the channel. The problem is is that everybody watched so much TV by this time. They didn't move around, which meant that all of the electricity generated by their nerve endings wasn't burned off as how the show explained it. So when their brains were assaulted with these blip verts, they kind of short circuited and all of that electricity that was just hanging around their bodies because they weren't moving at all during the day. Made them explode. But the network really liked blip verts and they didn't want to get rid of them, so they decided to instead get rid of Edison Carter. Yeah, and the TV advertising at the time or advertising in general sort of not only did TV rule the world, but the ads behind it was really the driving force. It sounds very familiar. It does. Everyone's like, I'd take a flip for it. Sure. Give me a three second ad. Yeah. On the podcast. Guys, it'll blow you up. So what ended up happening was, was the character of Edison Carter eventually was there was an incident, not the max headroom, it's in it, where he was left in a coma in an episode. The first episode. Oh, yeah, the pilot, of course. And the last thing he sees before falling into a coma is a sign that said max headroom, colon, 2.3 meters, and so that's how he got the name et cetera. Right. It was in like a parking garage and it was basically saying this is the overhead clearance is the way it is put in the United States. Yeah. Right. So that's the name max headroom, right? But he was an AI character. Right, so the evil TV network got a hold of him, uploaded his brain, and they originally did this with the intent of bringing Edison Carter because again, he was like their star reporter. Yeah. Bringing him back in virtual form. So they created an artificial intelligence. Well, it's kind of glitchy and blippy and it looked weird. So they threw it out. Well, some pirate broadcasters got a hold of this database that max headroom lived on. And they started broadcasting with them and max headroom was born. That's right. And you said glitchy and blippy, and that kid's explains your intro when you went to Josh. Oh yeah, yeah. I was doing my med surgery person. Thank you for explaining that. Yeah, that bears Josh, he's okay, everybody. So that's what max headroom did. It was jittery. It was blippi, like you said, the background was this weird sort of horizontal and diagonal line moving around thing. And that was all part of this at the time, sort of futuristic look. He was also really sarcastic and really catty and he was really he poked fun at censorship and he was just kind of like a cult hero, just the character itself, right? Yeah. The awesome thing about him is in the real world of 1984. We didn't have any kind of computers that could generate a CGI host. So they actually used like prosthetics, there was a four hour process to put Matt Frewer into the max headroom makeup. So it's the guy acting and they messed with the video a little bit, but it

"And you're going to learn a lot. Welcome to another episode of tech talk radio. I'm Andy Taylor. I'm Sean de weird. And I'm Justin lemmy. How you guys doing? I'm doing great. It's good to see you. You've been out for a couple weeks. A couple of weeks. Yeah, a couple of weeks. I've been on assignment. You came back from Japan. You did. Half the show and then you were gone. I know, right? I don't even remember why that was. I do. And it was sad. It was the cat, yep. Unfortunately. Yeah, we had to put down our cat, our white cat shiro. What was wrong? What was wrong with the cat? Well, you know, he was getting older and he had, we don't know exactly what it was. It was either cancer or was IBD. He was becoming incontinent. As a radio term, you can use. And we just couldn't handle anymore. It was just going to the point where, you know, you get the carpet cleaner out and you put it away and all of a sudden you got to get it back out again. And it was just, yeah, it was bad. So I made the call, but we used actually, we used a service. I don't know if they have this all over the nation, but it was a service called caring pathways. Right. Have you guys heard of this? No, I haven't. No. So it is a service where they basically, they send a doctor to your home. That will do the service for you at your home. So they come in and right off the bat, I mean, you could tell that this guy was a professional. I mean, he'd come in and he was like, you know, very, very soft spoken, you know, just high, I'm here to, I'm here for shiro, you know, let's go ahead and talk about what we're going to do here. And then we would he would lay out a nice, fluffy bed with a blanket, and we would bring shiro down and he was like, okay, so what I'm going to do is I'm going to give you guys a few moments, and then I'm going to administer some sedative. And then right into the kidney, and then at that point, then after he goes to a sleeping state, I'm going to administer the ketamine, which would then end his life. And his life. And that's what they did. But everything he did was very soft spoken. It was very respectful and it allowed us to let him go to heaven in a comfortable manner in not having in our home, not having to do it in like a veterinary clinic or whatever where he's already scared. So yeah, so we had to do that. So we did that and he was sad but we had to do it and then we had him cremated and we actually brought him home and so he hasn't earned and what was pretty sad was our other cat kuro for the, you know, for the first few days while he was gone, you know, it was kind of walking around meowing like, hey, where's shiro where's shiro? But then when but then when he came home and we put the urn up and we put a little shrine to Shira with some pictures and things and that's where his urn sits kuru went and slept next to it. Oh man. And so I was like, wow, that's powerful. Like he still, he knows. He knows he's here. Yeah. You know? But obviously, I don't think caring pathways listens to this show, 'cause we're not broadcast in Denver, but if they do, I really want to give a big shout out to caring past. That's a great because I remember when it came time for our dog, we had to gather her up and take her to and again, very scary for her that drives awful and this is a great way for the family to that they don't all have to try and convene at this place. They're at home and that's actually a pretty good idea. Yeah. And yes, I mean, truth be told, I'm sure there's listeners out there like, oh, that sounds amazing, but it sounds expensive. Yeah, it was a little bit more. I think we paid with the cremation included. And we didn't do, we didn't do a private cremation. What we did was individual cremation. So they had a bunch of animals in the crematorium, but they were separated a little bit. And then they would cremate them and then they'd scoop out the ashes and stuff. So it was kind of like the middle of the road cremation. I think with the euthanasia and the cremation, it was like $650. But still, again, it made it a little easier for the family to kind of, was that kind of rough for him too? You know, he actually handed it pretty well. I mean, he cried for a couple different times and throughout the weeks that followed, you know, there's a couple of different times where we would be getting ready for school or whatever and he'd grab his picture and start crying and say, I miss shiro and everything. And I get it. But no, he handled it pretty well. Yeah. Wow. No, I appreciate it. No, I mean, and then, you know, we went to Japan, we talked about the Japan trip and everything and but no, we're back and it's just been busy. It's been busy. There's a lot going on too. A lot of announcements. Last week on the show, Sean and I talked about some of the cool stuff. We talked about the fact that, you know, I was dealing with COVID, tested negative, so I'm fine now. Gloria is still on that line is like really faint. We just had to do another really fate, but it's still there. So I don't think she's going to be going back to work. Probably not for another couple of days. Because she works in healthcare, right? She worked in healthcare in that edict for that has been now, while some companies have been taking the whole task that, hey, listen, if you got it, wear a mask. You can come into work. And I know some companies doing that. And that makes a lot of people nervous. I mean, I got it in a situation at work. Somebody who got sick, she took off for three days after she had gotten sick and I worked by myself, but it was enough in the room enough and then of course Gloria got it off of me three days after that. After I had gotten it. But you know, it's still here. While people think maybe it's not, it's still here. You could still go online. Never going to go away. Yeah, you could still get information about it. I mean, you know, I Sean, I don't think you've been touched by that yet. Have you? You know, no, but I've been touched by every other sickness has gone through day care. Oh, gotcha. I remember the kids. Caitlin and I were knocked out for a couple of days, about two weeks ago, and just hold up and max was sick before that. And RSV has been going around, which is a child. Eric's got that now. A viral infection that kids get. And it's can be deadly for toddler younger than 6 months. So max got that a couple of months ago and it went, it did its run, and then we got sick after that. So we just had whatever he had. So a viral infection that just kind of stunk for a while, so. Yeah. Sean, can I ask you just a quick question? So your son max is his full name Maxwell, or Maximilian. Just max, really? Just max. We didn't want to give it any length to it. We just wanted to do max, right? Because he's named after a couple different maxes, right? He's named after one of Caitlin's great uncles, max. Just straight max. And then a Maximilian Colby, who's a Polish saint. Oh. Who gave his life up for prisoners in Auschwitz? Oh, wow. Oh, wow. Okay. So nothing to do with max rockin tusk's tansky. No, he's Mad Max. Just max. Not HBO Max though. Not master Stranger Things. Right? Okay. Okay, so if you guys have not max headroom max headroom was great. I interviewed that guy once. He was so cool. I'll tell you some really cool. All right, you remember the road warrior?

The Horse Racing Radio Network Podcast
"max headroom" Discussed on The Horse Racing Radio Network Podcast
"Max headroom there, James, for our final segment. Yeah, that was fantastic. Let's go down to the phone's Bill in California. Welcome to the bris dot com calling show. Thank you, Bobby. Hello, James. James, I've got a twin spires account and I have enjoyed betting the Dubai cup as well as the races from ascot. I noticed that early on in those cards, there's really no horizontal wagering doubles pictures, et cetera. Are they are those pools commingled or are they just here in the U.S.? I think they have different rules for different pools. I think that, you know, there were some commingling of the pools, but as far as like those exotic wet. I mean, there's one hub for the American wagering, my understanding is Bobby. Maybe you can answer this better for Bill. No, I don't know. And I would say it matters on the jurisdiction. Obviously, when it comes to the races from Saudi Arabia or later next month from Dubai, there's no local bedding at those venues. So any of the any of the polls are just something that's created for us, basically. Okay. I was just curious if it was only for the U.S. pools that they would probably put in some horizontal doubles and tick trees. Anyway, quickly, I like rattle and roll in the fountain of youth. I've been following this horse since he broke his maiden, but 8 to one, I took your point James that he's coming off the layoff, but do you think we'll get anywhere close to 8 to one? No. No, I don't think so. What do you think, Bobby? Okay. No, I don't think I don't think you will either the concern I have with rattle and roll. I think he's definitely one of the best horses in the race, but from what we've seen of Mick peaks two year olds turning three year olds this year, they haven't been firing their best shots first start of their three year old year. I don't know if I don't know if that'll be different than with rattle and roll, but to me, there was a story not long ago, Bill, you probably read it somewhere where they were talking about mcpeak having four possible Kentucky Derby horses. And every one of them has come back and lost. Coming up to this one. So it doesn't mean it doesn't mean that the story is wrong. It just means that they haven't they haven't fired their best shot off the layoffs. So I don't know what to think of rattle and roll doing that. All right. Last question, I noticed that mister baffert has an entry into the Gotham. I thought he was banned in New York. There are waiting a ruling on that hearing he had from that whatever commission that was. But until that until they issue a ruling against him, he has an injunction right now and congenital horses is the way I understand it, Bobby. Yeah, as of now, he can run and Rockefeller is four to one on the morning line in the Gotham. By the way, Bill, thank you so much for your call. Rockefeller certainly one of the ones who's going to get action in the Gotham, I don't really know what to think of Rockefeller. I happen to think he's probably about the 5th best baffert horse right now. Now whether or not that's good enough to win the Gotham, I don't know. I would probably play against him in that race. It looks a little bit more wide open. My guess is if you think a manual is one of the horses to beat in the fountain of youth and the horse who was second to him last time out glider at 8 to one in the Gotham has to be worth at least a little bit of a look in there and also Morello looked great in both of his first two starts sprinting. It's only a one turn mile. It's not two turns. I don't see why he can't be one of the ones again as well. I think that this race was hard to make a morning lawn for because of these sources shipping in. But I think that number 5 dean's list is going to be the morning line favorite. I think he's going to be lower than 7 or two. I thought that race last time where he beat dean delivers who came back and got had a trouble trip I thought and ran a really big race. I thought for second in the swale and in due time, he came back and was a real sharp allowance winner and he's a little bit of a buzzword in the fountain of youth. I thought that was the best allowance of the Gulf Stream meet of the championship me for three year olds. I think he's the speed of the speed in the field. And I think he's going to have to be caught. I'm looking for him to run well. If he doesn't run well, I just think it's probably because he's just 6 furlongs and they're even concerned about the one term mile. But I mean, getting the one turned on, I don't think we'll be an issue for him right now. And I sort of have a similar thought about the sample where I just thought forbidden kingdom was so awesome last time in the San day, you know, Pinehurst came back and ran such a big race and he was no threat whatsoever to him in my opinion. And I just think he's eligible to get out there on the front end and just crush those horses. I think I just haven't seen a lot of depth out west, obviously messier and you can maybe case for a couple other horses..

So it will be just like you're there with us. Let's see if we can help some people out. Now, before we even thank the artist for episode 1394 and we titled that one rewilding we have to say a big hearty get well to Kenny Ben, Kendra. What happened? Well, we were seeing things in the artwork of people like well wishes to Kenny Ben. And so we didn't know what had happened. It turns out Kendra, she Kenny Ben has been in hospital, not in the hospital for over a week. And things were not good. Facts? No, I don't think so, but I don't know. And isn't it weird, that's the first question. And I have had to resist this so many times in public settings when someone said, yeah, you know, my dad got sick and you want to say the facts? It's a shitty thing to say. Why? No, it's not nice. Why is it not nice? It's just a question. Yeah, you know what? I mean, it's not a night. It's not the nice first question. Well, I got to suppose you could start with or what happened. I don't know. But she posted something like, yes, I've been in the hospital, haven't been able to eat for a week. They might have to operate. So it's not good. Yeah, it's not good. We don't we just go right ahead and send her a massive health karma because she certainly deserves it. She's done lots of good art for us. You've got karma. Now we do want to thank Parker Paulie, who brought us the artwork chosen for episode 1394. This was the Pfizer pops. And we both like this. Yeah, this was a very beautiful piece. Well done, kid approved. I'm not crazy about the background colors personally, but it did not bother me at all. What else were we looking at? Let me see. I like the max headroom piece from mcadam. I like the super spreaders from capitalist agenda, which I was going to use for the newsletter. But then something better came along and I had got bumped. We liked the super spreaders was the capitalist agenda bats. It's current divorce upside down. Oh, you see here it is. Here's the comics blogger, get well Kenny Ben. See, that's what we saw. And there's another one. Kenny Ben from tanta Neal. Be back better. We've got to find out what's going on with her. There were some Fauci stuff, which is no good. I didn't like the max headroom. It's like with Joe Biden's head on it. It's a reference that barely anyone knows anymore. I realized that. The one I did like was from nest works post it notes. I thought that was a very nice. In fact, it was between if I recall, it was between the post it notes and the pops. Yeah, but the post it notes was aggressively so aggressively different that the pops was more traditional in terms of what sure it looks like. And I don't think we could have pulled it off. It was a very nice piece with exponentially at the bottom. Which I posted that exponentially like what the hell and there's lots of people telling me I'm an idiot that it's a real word. But did you look it up? Yeah, there's no word for it. Maybe next time around with the merriam Webster. Exponentially, you can also mean exponentially or expeditiously, if said by a president. Something like something along the way. If anyone thinks it's a real word, I mean, I've never seen it as a story. I've never heard of it as a word. And it sounds like it doesn't sound like a word, but it's like one of those words like tooth..

Jack holder erected in the second nightmare street so think we need to talk a little bit about the history of new line cinema charles right because this was a new line cinema film. This isn't new line cinema film new line cinema from the late sixties up until the mid eighties it was kind of more of a schlocky distribution house for foreign movies and cult releases like one of the numerous video releases of neither living dead because neither learning dead went into public domain.

It's him and nobody. Guess I should say it is I like Captain said if it's me the camp it is. I could be came in in studio me, Captain. He just grunt the whole fellow. Yes, like this is he is the one that always sounds strange. To me. That's what you're supposed to say. But this is he. But if I please Yes, I am. He would be correct. He is me. We are him. Yes, we are us a key man. Toys R us. I had mentioned this bit about Gene Simmons. We talked about Schilling. And what the definition of a shill is. This is actually from Bitcoin dot com. Rock star and Kiss bassist Gene Simmons tells fans he bought Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies. That's the headline in September of 2020, the front man of the Rock band Kiss Gene Simmons. Tweeted a cryptic message about Bitcoin with one of the co founders of the gym and I Crypto Exchange. Then on Sunday, they tweeted this together did can one of them not type for that work? Retweeted as they call it? Maybe But then on Sunday, as in yesterday, the kissing or tweeted to his 900,000 Twitter followers that he bought Bitcoin Ethereum light coin. Just I guess maybe he mentioned does too. He did as a matter of Yeah, That's a little later in the article. If there's any shilling going on, my guess is it's between him and the gym and I crypto exchange, not necessarily between him and Any of the actual coins so we could talk more about that. But first, let's go to your calls and your thoughts. We have Jacob calling from Illinois. Jacob, you're on free talk life. Are you guys doing tonight? Hey, Jacob, what's on your mind? Call a couple months ago about they shut down all our bars in Illinois, but a lot of them were staying open. Xolo couple. People decided this niche and whatnot and get him all closed back down. Well, off course about two weeks ago, they decided that it's okay for bars to be open to gamble in But if you want to have a beer food, you have to sit outside. What? No, it's just irritating that they could get their cut, but we can't do nothing about it. Wow, that is now Is this have you considered overthrowing your government? Well, yeah, that's basically won today considers it a deal. If you don't have to do with violently, rather this violence system until they go home. How about just ignore them? And, you know, open up anyway with hopefully, other bars and other restaurants like come together and say, Hey, let's let's just open up would be great. I don't think Jacob is a bar owner. No, I'm only 21 years old man. Hey s So is this just within like your city Is this with the whole state of Illinois? The whole state of Illinois is open except for Chicago. I think But I'm always away from there. Hey, do you know why there's ah souther, a southerly wind, always blowing out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. No, I do not because Chicago sucks. Yeah. Geography joke. You know, Milwaukee's north of Chicago. You wouldn't get that one, but also it anything else you want to say tonight? Jake up? Now I love you guys, So keep it going. All right, man. Good luck. I hope you get a beer, Suman. They closed the bars and then they go, okay. You can open but on Lee, if you're going to gamble, and I'm assuming the state takes a nice cut off of any gambling, right, what is it was like you congratulate inside. But then then you have to go outside and drink your beer. If you want to gamble with your liver, you gotta go outside if you want to gamble with with your cash Which is because the covert virus is very rare in that it drinks beer, which, of course, alcohol kills most viruses, but but gambling cove it is very it's apparently some sort of a repellent. Yet with the thing is covert had a gambling problem years back, and so it just can't stand.

Your Brain on Facts
Food, Dubious Food
"In twenty eleven in Alabama law firm sued fast food chain Taco Bell for dishonest business practices claiming that Taco Bell's seasoned filling couldn't be called beef under USDA standards because they had it tested and it was only thirty five percent beef. The rest was oats and other fillers Taco bell pulled out all the stops to refute the allegation at a cost of more than three million dollars including parody of Saturday morning superhero cartoon show that they had already for reasons super delicious ingredients force fighting. Baron VAUGHN bland. My Name's Moxy. And this is your brain on facts. Researching conspiracy theories and urban legends. Always gets a little wild like. Did you know that people are die hard? Tim Hortons fans because the Canadian version of Dunkin donuts spikes their coffee with highly addictive nicotine. Of course they don't but that doesn't stop people from believing. It will be skipping over. Stories like the fingertip and Wendy's Chili. That was a failed extortion attempt or the mouse in the mountain dew which PepsiCo defended themselves against by proving that the mouse would have dissolved. Let's start with the biggest name and fast food. The Mac Daddy if you will. Mcdonald's easily holds the records for the most urban legends and conspiracy yarns spun around a restaurant. The topic has its own wikipedia. Page and these. Well predate the unduplicated experiment. That was Morgan. Spurlock super size me listeners. Of a certain demographic may remember the Jimbo. You deserve a break today reaching them about the same time as the rumor that McDonald's stretched their hamburger meat out with Nice. Cheap ground up worms. If you've been online for more than a few minutes. In the past decade he will have seen a picture of a factory machine extracting fat tube of Pink Mush or pink slime as the caption frames. It say hello to mechanically separated chicken. It's all fast food. Chicken is made from things like chicken. Nuggets patties also. The process frozen chicken in the stores is made from it. Basically the entire chicken is smashed and pressed recieve bones is guts. All it comes out looking like this and there's more because it's crawling with bacteria it'll be washed ammonia soaked in it actually then because it tastes gross. It'll be re flavored artificially then because it's weirdly pink it'll be died with artificial color but hey at least it tastes good right. There are little bits they are that are nearly true mechanically separated meat is a staple ingredient in ready made frozen and fast foods but it's made from meat cuts not whole carcasses while beef producers commonly treat meat products with small amounts of ammonium side as an anti microbial agent and assessing in a high volume facility meat and poultry processors. Don't soak the meat in ammonia. They treat it with the gas apart from the included items being wrong. There are a lot of things that are missing. Like the fact that McDonald's stopped using mechanically separated chicken in two thousand and three mechanically separated. Beef was banned in two thousand four due to concerns about Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy Aka mad cow disease and the pink. Slime in the picture is probably what one beef industry magazine writer called. Ammonium treated lean beef trimmings not even chicken at all another glaring omission in the claim. There is nothing in the picture to identify that as a McDonald's facility. Mcdonald's went on the defensive showing how nuggets were actually made and that the mushed up chicken while not especially pleasing to the eye at no point looks like pink. Slime washed down those nuggets with a milkshake. Well there's no milk in that milkshake. There's no dairy of any kind. That's why the menu says shakes and not milkshakes. At least that's the rumor. What are they used instead to make it so creamy pureed cow eyeballs or maybe a little microscopic styrofoam balls for filler or lard or potatoes or seaweed or ground up feathers there are strict definitions food labelling and while. Mcdonald's shakes can't be labeled milkshakes in some areas because they don't contain straight up milk they do contain milk via the soft serve ice cream that's used to make them and they don't contain any of the other things save one. Their ice cream is made from milk. Sugar cream of Corn Syrup and various common preservatives and thinners McDonald's self-serve does contain one item from the Urban Legend List Seaweed specifically encourage Heenan. A safe natural common ingredient bonus. Fact if your food or drink is pink or red in color. Check The label for coaching. Neil a type of beetle whose ground up bodies have been used as a food color for centuries. I'm not suggesting to avoid it unless you're trying to keep kosher. I just think it's interesting. It's probably only listed as natural color. Anyway say you bought more food than you're able to eat in one sitting and you left the rest on the counter for a few weeks. Hey we all get busy. Thanks to all the artificial ingredients in manmade chemicals in boldface defiance of the natural order of things that McDonald's food won't rot. Lots of people have made videos showing the food remaining virtually unchanged after days and even weeks. This is a little bit true but mostly false in case any specify that and not for the reasons you think according to Dr Keith Warner Program Director at the University of Gulf's Department of Food Science and Quality Assurance essentially the microbes. That cause rotting are a lot like ourselves in that they need water nutrients warmth and timed grow. If we take one or more of those elements away then. Microbes cannot grow and spoil food in the example of the McDonald's hamburger. The patty loses water in the form of steam during cooking the BUN is made out of bread and toasting it reduces the amount of moisture this means that after preparation hamburger is fairly dry. When left out open in a room? There's further water loss as the humidity within most buildings is around forty percent so in the absence of moisture or high humidity. The Burger simply dries out rather than rots so no moisture no rot. It's the inverse of the reason. Why the bathroom is the only room in your house where you're locked in an eternal struggle with microbes like mold and mildew speaking of moisture. Who could use a tasty beverage right about now? How about a new COQ? Don't know what I'm talking about. That means one of two things. You're under the age of thirty or the most devious and ingenious marketing effort of all time succeeded or failed either way. The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. Set would want you to know. That coke created new coq to cover the switch from sugar to corn Syrup to mask the removal of the last remaining coca derivatives or because people would hate it and demand more of what had been renamed co Classic. Take your pick. Pepsi had an effective ad campaign with the Pepsi. Challenge a blind taste test where lifelong coke fans found out they actually preferred the taste of Pepsi. Coke replicated the challenge in private and found the same thing. So in nineteen eighty-five they reformulated coke to be sweeter and put it out as new coq hip trendy with it and now including TV spots with the supposedly CGI. Max Headroom. You can hear more about in episode ninety six. Do not adjust your set. People hated new COQ. The heated the very idea of coping changed. There were letter writing campaigns thousands of calls a day and people. Hoarding original coke. Were boycotting the brand altogether independent bottlers even sued Coca Cola for lost revenue. It was all over the news all the late night talk shows. You couldn't buy that much publicity for. Could you? People began to speculate that. Coca-cola had launched new coq knowing that people would hate it that it would make people want to buy original coke and that everyone would be talking about it. They created it to fail. This isn't as far fetched a notion as you might think a decade or so later when Pepsi Launched Crystal Pepsi. Can you hear that Van Hagar Song Coke Launch? Crystal Tab? Tab was the first Diet Soda and even though Crystal Pepsi wasn't Diet People inflated the two and Crystal Pepsi went out faster than Jenkins and plastic choker necklaces as for the new coq debacle being a deliberate marketing ploy then company president. Donald Cove said some. Cynics will say that we planned the whole thing. The truth is we're not that dumb and we're not that Smart
