The NFL and George Floyd, Salary Cap Decrease, Offensive Rookie of the Year Odds

"Gm Shuffle is presented by draftkings the leader in daily fantasy sports. Thank you as always checking us out here on the GM Chappel, please go to apple podcasts for you can subscribe rate and review. Lots of good stuff to talk about on the show floor, including white decreasing salary cap, impact, teams plus NFL, offensive rookie of the year odds, and could we ever see the xfl return? It has obviously been a very heavy week here in life, and we going to discuss what's happening right now with this country in regards to the George Floyd Murderer, and how people are reacting to his death, and with the protests around this country, but I wanNA start at a moment of Levity, Mike and. And that is with this. We both live in the Great State of Jersey your home, my adopted home. I'm in North Jersey. And South Jersey great news is we're about to enter phase two I thought of you as a son of a barber. What is your reaction? That June twenty second, we can get haircuts again because I got to tell you with four boys in this house. We did one haircut home. It was a disaster. I've always had a lot of respect for anybody that cuts here professionally. Including Your Father Big News June twenty second. We can get haircuts in Jersey. It's awesome. I mean Barshop. Mike is in. Place right down the street here in ocean city, and they've had no problem, but to not as the son of a barber I mean I've now. Milly has become the barber in the family. It's kind of remarkable and when she wears glasses, it's actually turns out really good. You know, and so I I've been fortunate I think I've had three haircuts professionally done. You know since this pandemic started and. And it's been a lifesaver I. Mean I'm a son of a barber shop I'm used to go in every four weeks. You know. He took the longest time to cut my hair to. It used to kill me. You Know Oh. My God. Enough is enough you know barbershop Mike enough, but I mean I think there's a sense of in the state of New Jersey Ocean city is now crowded. Got People up there. There's a sense that this is that we're back to somewhat of normal and I think people are ready for normal. No question has definitely optimistic naughtily here in New Jersey. But throughout America at least for the guards to the pandemic as you mentioned with, it looks like especially a major areas number decreasing specifically in New York City Chicago and others having said that the focus entire week for the entire country has been the protests after the death of George Floyd a handcuff cup, black man who pleaded for air as a White Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck last week in specifics to the NFL. NFL teams from all over the League Vikings tweeting statements regarding the murder and an official Steve in the NFL address its commitment to using its platform in communities, and as part of the fabric of American society, and that we embrace that responsibility and are committed to continuing the important work to address these systemic issues together with our players, clubs and partners, however not good enough for Vikings linebackers Eric Hendricks Barr. Who are on the team social? Justice Committee issued identical tweets denouncing the league stance. Your statement said nothing both tweets read. Your League is built on black athletes. Vague answers do nothing. Let the players know what you're. Doing and we know what silence means. It's obviously been a very unsettling week. Mike Very Sombre Week. How are you dealing with everything? You're seeing on the news and the protests and Vantage point the NFL. Kendricks embar completely right? I think what we're looking for from teams as you keep this in in a team environment and what we're looking for from the League is leadership. We're looking for a direction. You know we're not looking for tweets, not looking for a press release. We're not looking for something that you post on Instagram we're looking for a plan some form of Of leadership that is going to unify we, the people we the people of the United States. We the people of the United States and I think that they fall short and I think when you read. Jeffrey lorries press release of this. It's obviously opposite of what the League put out because Laurie wasn't concerned about being politically correct. Lori was concerned about his heart. And I think sometimes that when you try to be politically correct, there's an absence of leadership and this is clearly. What's what the does too many times is say what you feel. Say what you believe you know. Say what's in your heart. It's not a hard thing to do. We're all we the people. It's all of us. It's not a hard thing to do. It's about doing what's right, and so when you. You hide behind long words or legal lease and you know that some lawyer wrote it. You know that it doesn't come across as genuine leadership. And what do we want from our owners? What do we want from our league? We want care you know we want a stable league. We want them to believe in the people in the League, and we want them to show that they care Jeffrey Loria. showed he cared. Now, we gotTA stop with the slogans and all the stuff and we have to be actionable. It has to be actionable, and I think that that to me is when I sit and watch it I crave for action because you know what eighty when you go back, and and you study history, and and I'm old so obviously you know for me. It's you know I'm a child of the sixties that I. can remember the TV just going with the fires and similar to what we're seeing now and and I look. Look back on it and I always come back to bobby. Kennedy speech on June Sixth Nineteen, sixty six, in Capetown South Africa and he starts the speech off, and this is fascinating how he starts his speech off I come here this evening, because of my deep interests and affection for land settled by the Dutch in the mid seventeenth century, then taken over by the British as the last independent in a land, which state of it had been in sport I subdued by relations with whom remain a problem to this day. Lamb which defined itself on Hostile Frontier Atlanta, which is tamed its rich natural resources through energetic application of modern technology Atlanta, which was once an importer of slaves, now must struggle to wipe out the last traces of that former bondage I refer of course, the United States of America. When you read that paragraph, you'd think he's talking about South Africa right. and. He's talking about the United States of America. This is sixty six. At some point, we have to stop slogans. We have to stop twitter we have to we have to do. This is sixty six. We're in two thousand and twenty. Yeah, it makes you think those do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. And I felt the cascade of emotions. You feel heartbreaking sadness or the family of George Floyd. You feel fear and trepidation when you see the looters and the damage that are causing, but then I do feel hope and optimism when I look at all the peaceful protests, and to your point, those the ones who are taking action. We're not just going to sit back. We're trying to enact change. We're trying to have their voice heard, but do so in a responsible manner, and to do so the way that the generations before the sixty seventies, and the eighties and I do worry about social distancing. Covid nineteen I feel like we're not out of the woods yet. Now I look at the images of protesters and everyone's sandwich together, so my heart goes down a little bit, but at the same time to your point, enacting chain begins with action, and this is where sports which can often be a respite from the real world can also take charge, and as you mentioned Jeffrey Loria others those in the NFL, and of course in other Sports Lebron James, and and you know all athletes written are speaking together, and you just kind of hope and pray if coalesce together real change can be enacted and not just false words. And I think what the bomb was doing. I think is good. I mean like we need to know. They're like yesterday. In Ocean city, there was a sense of urgency. There was a sense of anxiety in the town because there was a release out the black lives, movement was coming to protest here in ocean city, and literally there was a most of the town area where my office is was boarded up I. mean literally. Literally was boarded up. The boardwalk was boarded up because people were fearful of a violent protest, and it was a peaceful protests that came in. They walked across this two and a Half Mile Bridge that leads you into the island. They sat down in front of the old elementary school, which is now the police office, which is right across at the back of my building, and they held a peaceful protest. They did it. Class with dignity. They did it with a purpose, and it worked out really well, and it was kind of cool to watch, and I think Lebron said was true. Is he saying hey? Look we hear all about the violent and the rioting, and which is unnecessary, which is not called for, but let's hear about some of the peaceful things that we're trying to do, but once again I. Think you know as as someone as old as I am I, think you deed understand that we can't keep living this. You know from my grandsons. I don't want them. Them to live in this world. You know when we we moved to a million I moved to Oakland. California I wanted my kids to go to school. In an environment where there were people of color, there were different ethnicity because it. Just it helps, you would helps all of us. You know it helps. All of us understand that we the people are the people. And I think we need to have more of that. No question about it. We hope for optimism and we hope for real change. We now shift our attention to the matter of the NFL. What's happening and your Focus Michael? The Zion TV new budget for salary CAP decrease in two thousand twenty one. The only sure thing of the future of the NFL's, there'll be a decline in the salary cap next year. Those talk daily optimistic the NFL indeed play games this season, but the lasting impact at code nineteen means that getting back to work in that work looking the same as it did. In the past are two different things the new reality we must face as we head into the season's that we want football this year. Fans will be limited. Limited and to we make significant gains in prevention, vaccines and cures there will likely be no fans in the stands, and that means that substantial revenue streams will be absent the counting process this season, which will impact future years. That's the key here. Right ever keeps saying well. We're going to have football well. Yeah, but it's GonNa look a lot different and to think this isn't going to have. A huge economic impact would be foolish, right? It's like. I wrote that story on Monday and then this week. People started talking about it finally. I mean you know it's like I'm not saying they bogarted my column, but I think you know this is to me the biggest news of the day. I think this is bigger than anything. You know the fact that you know today. we learned that the chances of the NFL teams have at any offseason. We knew back in April, that was remote. Right so the League now has announced that you know they haven't announced this, but schefter reported us today that the next time the teams get together as going to be. For training camp whenever. That is you know there's not going to be you know. The offseason program has to end by a certain point, and you can't go away for training camp, so the leaks titan and stuff up, but this salary cap issue that's going on as you know. Because of the loss revenue, it could be a huge shortfall, and I think that it's going to take some time to get it back and I think what we're headed for. Next offseason is a huge a huge huge problem. Because if schefters right, I said thirty million in my column Schefter reported yesterday that it's going to be somewhere between thirty and eighty million. The CAP will go down. This is going to cause complete panic. This is going to have an unemployment rate in the national. Football League of quality players beyond anything you've seen next year. The Eagles are fifty million dollars above the cat. Now you know fifty million above the CAP. No big deal you know you cut. Sean, Jackson you cut Alshon Jeffery you cut some other guy. You know all of a sudden. You pick up all the CAP room. You need right. If you got to cut fifty plus another seventy, you gotta cut one hundred and twenty million off your cap. Good luck. You'RE NOT GONNA have team. And you could say well. The owners need to make concessions. No, because the owners and the players are partners in this their partners. How do you make a concession when it's your partner? Yeah, thirty million to eighty million. That is an incredibly wide Gulf. You're right. I mean that's that's a significant amount more from what you wrote me athletic, even though the cap will. Will come down. The deals are these three players Patrick Mahomes Dak Prescott Russell Wilson will not be impacted. All them will get their money, but there'll be. Others won't be as lucky. It's the Middle Tier. Players will pay heavy price if the CAP tumbles players service, quasi stars with inflated cap numbers will find rookies breathing down their necks. Rookie deals would become more popular. Popular the only way to work the CAP, successfully as the cheap workforce. You'RE GONNA have a real divide right income inequality. It's going to be your writ superstars, generally your star quarterbacks, and then just a ton of rookies, making the minimum to see you can meet that number. Right no doubt and then when you look at twenty twenty one I the rams for example. Example they put eight point. Four million of todd girlies cap charges into their twenty twenty one cat. So now you know right now. They're twenty twenty one cap. I mean and say it's eighty million less than it was this year I mean you can forget Andre Whitworth that's eleven million. You could forget Leonard Floyd. You could forget. Geoffrey Robinson, and Hammerstein and Brock or Or you can forget them all. They just start criminal because Dundee. Any good to turn the minimum salary guys, it only does you good to turn. The guys have some some meat on the bone I mean the rams are just gonNA keep going from bad too bad too bad. It's going to be what's going to be left as Goffin. Donald and just a bunch. Bunch of rookies like how did they do the deal for Jalen Ramsey when they know that. Next year the CAP could be eighty million dollars impacted. Like. How do you do Patrick Mahomes deal when you know the cap next year could be eighty million less than what you're doing. The same thing with the Shawn Watson and Dak Prescott. See. Here's the thing I think. Think people don't understand is how this games played each one Watson mahomes and Prescott all have different agents and Prescott agent knows he knows that he's not gonna be able to get quite to Watson and Holmes. He knows he's not getting them homes, but he needs to be able to carry them. He's like the bike rider. WHO's riding behind a guy who's in the? The lead is just basically block in the wind form. You know, and so this will be allow him to get as close as he can. That's why he doesn't want to deal yet, so he doesn't want to do what he wants to wait 'til Watson does a deal and then try to do it because here's what you don't want to do as an agent. When the ink is dry on the signature of the contract. You just did two weeks later. Another deal comes in. It's already over your deal. You don't want that. You need to be able to have a deal that stands on so I? Think it's going to be very complex to get extensions are they were headed into the abyss. I think it's going. going to be apocalyptic in terms of where this league's going, because someone is going to pay a price for not having fans in the stands, and it ain't going to be the owners. It's going to be the partners and I don't think people understand that exactly. That's what happens. You have revenue sharing. It's different baseball where the players keep saying we're not. Not GonNa take a cap or knocking days or revenue sharing in the NFL in basketball and hockey, the salary cap systems right in the NFL. The capital, two hundred million of you go down eighty million. That's a forty percent it that's certainly going to be a significant amount of money moving forward by the way you can follow Mike on instagram. Follow 'em. 'EM LOMBARDI NFL Simmons. NFL twitter handle. Excuse me and follow me Adnan. virk also shows instagram page at the GM shuffle coming up next. We've been talking gambling odds as far as some of the major categories. You've done coach of the MVP how `bout NFL rookie of the year odds at least when it comes to offense. That's next on the GM shares. NFL offensive rookie of the year odds. This year's NFL draft was the most watching history by a wide margin. Of course. There's no sports on so everybody was locked into the draft. Always does ratings. Good ratings with this year is a different matter. Joe Borough number one overall pick by the bengals. Owner, no surprise. The NFL offensive rookie of the year, according to bet MGM, now former Crimson tide quarterback, a ton of law drafted by the dolphins, one of the contenders to also rookie year. Then you've got other. NFL rookie odds of ten to one or less, a running backs. Here's some of the numbers. Mike Job Rose plus two hundred. Okay, that makes sense Andrea Swift running back plus fifty two plus nine hundred now we get the more running backs. Jonathan Taylor plus nine fifty Clyde Edwards Allaire plus a thousand, and then you get a few receivers, CD, limit plus twelve hundred Jerry Judy plus twelve hundred and Justin Jefferson at plus seventeen fifty. We know what the MVP. It's always a quarterback odds, but it's interesting here. You got a couple of quarterbacks and borough Tua. Then he got running backs and wide receivers mixed. Mixed in which one you could pick, you know I think Clyde Edwards is a tremendous pick I think CD. Lamb is a tremendous pick I think what I would do with. This is I would take a few is and spread the money around I think Jonathan Taylor really interesting pick. You know I wouldn't bet it onto. A I would bet on borough because let's say that the Bengals win four games and barrel has a decent year. He might just get rookie year, but anyone else. They have to be on winning teams. You know and I think CD. Lamb qualifies the third receiver in the slot. Advantages in terms of who covers him I think the cowboy offense can be explosive this year. Even though last year it was good at times it was inconsistent, and then I think Jonathan Taylor the big back you that can come in there. especially. The Way Frank Reich likes to run the football Kinda of offset himself with hines and Mac. Guys to carry. I don't see to apply inasmuch maybe week six or seven, but Ryan Fitzpatrick that job, and then I think the other guys, I mean Judy and rugs rugs to me is going to be like a home run hitter. He's GonNa come on the field and play, but for me those would be the guys that I would place swift. Can Detroit win. Can he make a difference in what they do I think he'll be a good part of what they do offensively, but can they win enough? I think the rookie of the year is going to be part of a winning team as well. You know that he enhanced that team. That's why like CD Lamb I. Like Hollier and I like Taylor good the winning team because the borough he's GonNa play or the bengals actually GonNa be a winner will know it would be. I would think an incredible reached. Even get to five hundred, so that obviously hurts his candidacy back to the thought quarterback, so borough and tour are to the top three activate. Activate you've got to go all the way down. Adjust Herbert at plus two thousand. So that's like you know top ten in terms of it by the betting odds and you WANNA. Go even further you get to Jordan Lovett plus three thousand. I mean that would be a hell of a move. Somehow would have to be an injury right Air Roger would have to get hurt and join love and have to get Preston duty, and the packers have a good team could theoretically have a good season. Make the plans with love, but otherwise there's no ways a play I imagine at least this year, right? It'd be like Ben Played as a rookie. No, Tommy Maddox. Maddox got hurt in the week two, and then had to come in, and they went to the playoffs and Ben. Kind of managed the game. That would have to be, but I'm not sure. The the packers good enough defensively to kind of let that go through and look I love Judy, but you're counting on you. Know drew lock to be as good as you hope he will be, so there's a little bit of doubt there you know. The guy like is K. J.. Hamblur at the Broncos because I think he can impact the game in the kicking game on offense in two phases, and then Justin Jefferson, i. mean someone's gotTa fill in for Stefan Dick. Dick so you gotta feel like he can come in and do some things and I think a lot of options I think asleep or guy, too for me is camakers if the rams play well this year and the say the rams get a wildcard I think camakers is going to be the back I can. Makers is going to take that step, and he's going to be the starting running back for the rams, and I think he can make a huge difference so I would play him as well every time I see acres I think Chris Berman saying David Green acres that at that at that, and wondering like how many people actually that reference degreed acres. I would imagine very few. I mean it's an era. That's the problem, is we? All the shows that we watched know is like you know my son. You know they're all here and I got dominic and they don't want dominic to watch much television. Mikey and I'm like well. You know like I was watching Gilligan's island when I was a kid like that. That's bad. TV right like he's watching. ABC TV like that's good TV like there's A. A difference between. TV, but we're limited. How much TV watch the kids smarter than I am and I mean he's not watching TV. So you know I'm watching Gilligan's island. I'm watching greet acres I. Mean it's Hilarious, I mean. Could you imagine those shows even surviving today do remember greenacres at all I. Don't regret Gilligan's island definitely saw reruns. Just kitsch value those shows. There's no way it could survive today, no chance. The theory Beverly Hillbillies. You know all that I mean it's. It's hilarious. All right stay tuned after the break. We got Joe's Question Week with the xfl Plus Jack Nicholson one of our favorite actors for kick around idea. The Mount Rushmore Jacks movies. That's next. All right time now for JOE's. Joe. What do you have for us? So the xfl is going to be auctioned off on August third after filing for chapter eleven bankruptcy last April. It's founder. McMahon said that there's twenty potential buyers have now signed NDA's for potential purchase of the League, but that many buyers interested my question to you guys is. Do you think the league will make return, and if so when it all? This is one of those you know. Fool me once. Shame on you for me twice. Shame on me like it's xfl I. think There's definitely been some good ideas along the way, certainly technologically speaking especially the first year you saw the way they use the camera mic in the players get more personality. Hate me, etc, and I know you watch a little more or less latest iteration here the second time around, but to me if you feel, it's pretty. Pretty tough to get back on the horse of third time I mean I. Get the fact. Visit GonNa say there's still people kicking tires, and yes, there's a huge appetite for football in this country, but if you fail twice, it's tough to really go for three for me. I mean that's true. However, however, we talked about on the salary cap. We're going to have a huge supply of players that are going to have a hard time getting jobs. And there's going to be a supply chain out there. That's going to be really really better than what they had last year. If I were the NFL I would by the League I would partner with somebody, and by the League I think it has to be one person buys the league. One person has to incur the cost. It can't be nine different owners, because that's what messes everything up and then I think it could be really the farm system of Developmental System, the Leadership Academy we talked about it could be everything for everyone. You know and it could be and also way to help get more employment for players I think if I'm the national football league and I know that would seem like a monopoly right if they own two leagues, I don't know federal law and antitrust laws and all that stuff, but to me I would be really interested in buying it I think it's the perfect time now because with that cap goes down and really let's face it ad. You don't care who's in the stands anymore right main. Because of the virus season ticket sales. You know that reve, it's gotta be all on television and TV's are looking for more stuff, so I think it could line up to the perfect storm I wouldn't be spreads Vince McMahon makes money on this thing. It's a good point. Make about supply and demand. I didn't think about that. You're right. There's amount of players to be looking for jobs, and so therefore I just want to play. WHO CARES ONE? One hundred thousand. Whatever that point is, you want to play specially. If you just lost your job in the NFL and revenge is always a dish best served cold I. think a lot of these guys get cup of the NFL because the salary cap limitations I don't care. I'll play wherever you want. There's only so many guys that complain the AFL so I. Do see your point if the cap could be that disastrous than yes, this league. League could have some chance amazing that they could come back from the dead for third time. Right Yep no doubt and I think sometimes you know the the middle of difficulty lies opportunity, and I think there's a great opportunity here for this league, and I think that somebody who's a lot smarter than I am going to see this opportunity in light of the salary Cap in light of the fact that we don't need fans, we can plan small. Small stadiums we can really reduce our cost. We don't need to play in in the meadowlands. We don't need to play at Texas Stadium. We don't need to play. You know we can cut this thing down. We're going to have very few people in the stands we're going to. It's going to be paid for television event. It's going to be only for TV. We're going to have interaction. Obviously. The TV's going to have to fund everything and. and. We don't have to worry about selling tickets to be able to make it so I think there's a great opportunity I really do, and then as we build back once. The game gets popular from the vantage point of seen it on television. You can me by that time. We'll be able to sell tickets TV. Definitely is what it's all about. When it comes to movies and TV, we always talk pop culture here recently on Sinophile I watched. Watched the movie iron. We'd which is with Jack Nicholson Meryl. Streep came up nights eight seven I'd never actually see. They play a couple of depression era drifters. It's based on a book and it was excellent and maybe think about how much I Miss Jack Nicholson. Who hasn't made a major film since the bucket list which has over a decade ago, his last credited screen appearance ten years ago. And how do you know Mike and I both? Both love is good as it gets. It's one of our favorite. Jack Nicholson movies cyber question to you Mr Lombardi. If he didn't do a Nicholson Mount, Rushmore which I did, and this is virtually an incredibly difficult thing to do. Here's the forum going with one over the one floor. The CUCKOO's nest iconic performance as mcmurtry Chinatown, which is one of the great film, the wars, the nineteen seventies as good as it gets. Is You and I? I discussed Melvin. Udall so funny and so unforgettable, and then it's very tough that last spot. Do you go with the departed to go with about Schmidt? Do you go with A few good men lots of great choices. The shining is a great movie. How for you? How do you see it? What are your favorite Jack Movies I think he was amazing. As the joker I thought he was fabulous as the joker I. Love the Batman. I thought one flew over the CUCKOO's nest, and the shining together I think they were incredible I mean when you just see the scene of him picking his nose through the door. It's like the shining. You know you just get that so I go. There are good men. I don't know how you can play Nathan. Are Jessop part of our culture is part of our. You know you're quoting that movie all the time and then. How do I not have them in the part as Frank Stella And so for me, that's kind of where I am. I mean and and I don't know enough about I. Wish I WANNA go back and watch easy rider because I. Don't you know that's sixty nine I? Don't remember that carnal knowledge you know the only thing I know about carnal knowledge was an Margaret her button. That was when we were kids like Oh my God, you see Margaret's, but you know it's like Oh my God. That's the only thing I. Know about that movie. I don't even know what it's about. So. There's things you wish you see. I missed that hell. The Guy I really do i. mean when you watch him. Act In watch him. Just get into the cat like Hafa I wanted to like Hoffa but wasn't in love with the movie. I just didn't think it was a great screenplay. Iron we the way you just described iron. We'd like pussies honor. How good was that terms of endearment? I mean think about some of the movie and the I'll tell you. The one I liked him and his. The Postman always rings twice to what Jessica Lang I mean. That was an awesome movie Underway especially guys. You'll me love our mob movies. It's a very underrated Bob. Copied and Jessica Houston an Oscar for purchase. Our came out in Nineteen eighty-five, which is of Eastwick, another one broadcast news is a small role. You're right about half I wasn't a great way, but I did love his performance, because I thought he was so kind of just imbued with the Union in the whole thought process of Hoffa so one note obviously, Pacino was unbelievable as walnut performance, but I want to go back to the party mention. The Department is overacting, but I think listen the way he's comes off in that movie. I don't want be a product of by environment I want my. To be a product of me the way he's so sadistic and that movie takes the ring up. Dead Guys handed me the way. He's bullying Leonardo DiCaprio unbelievable. We know Chrissy liked it because he had the soundtrack right before he died, so it was like you know we know He. He would have put. Christie Criss Malzahn would've put at least. Like. What Christie's top five lists be like? It was a movie man writing screenplays. You Know Adriana, could you imagine? Could we hear her voice giving die like him in the? Match in that. Graduates the Sopranos. That's our final thought. This week you talked to Jerry Stiller passing away who was forgettable on Seinfeld the Sopranos podcast out right now, call talk and Sopranos Right Michael Imperial in Stephen. Sherpa obviously Michael Emporium as you mentioned play Chris for multi scientists triple play. Bob, Bokola they just had a couple of the casting directors and the Sopranos on, and they said the role of Hash was originally supposed. Supposed to be wait for it, Jerry Stiller but Jerry. Stiller had to shoot a commercial when they were filming that day with the shoot on a Friday and whenever he was busy like I can't make until Monday so. Jerry Adler is the actor playing Hash who's a very underrated role. I think I'll be very funnier rare to have a Jewish guy on the show, but could you imagine Jerry steelers ash? Now, I couldn't even imagine like I can't even see how she is Jerry. I can't you know I could still see him sitting there? Like one of my favorite scenes is when I'll junior has the sit down and Tony Arranges it and they sit there because you know old rules. Don't apply anymore, and he's GONNA tax. Has She for his things and? An uncle junior has a great line. Don't negotiate with these people. They'll take your ass every time. It's like you know the best eighty so good I mean. But Jerry Adler I thought really played the role. It was as an advisor constantly area I thought he was really well done. Relate an I gotta believe he'll be in the next one right because he was kind of involved with his dad. Right, so you got to feel like the she rolls GonNa Come Out, Tony told him he said you didn't write any songs. You just put your you know. Two black guys wrote songs, and you just put your name on to get their release i. mean think about that right Yeah, I hate as a hit. Hit, that was the first season. You're right. That's where you're like. Hey, and has did wrong. They said well. You know I marketed these guys. You know they're all the work. You took all the money. They did all the work. It's stealing from a man. You know it's like come on it. Is it as always? Thanks for checking US out here? The GM shop for once again. Follow Mike on instagram.

Live From the Ocean... It's C-LO

"And six twenty eight fans, CBS sports network a Monday kick off a new week a big week, because not only is baseball now in full swing. We've got NBA. We've got the NHL at the end of the week and you thought Brad Heller updates at five am. We're long before? Can you imagine next Monday morning? When he's got three weeks to get through, we might be on for like a half hour. And I know we're coming up to the CEO but got a quick thing for. All pro voter for the NFL and I take it very seriously and i. have been for the last well since nineteen ninety-seven, actually nine, hundred ninety eight. Actually, it was the first year that I started voting for all pro team, and there has been a stream of emails. That have been going around trying to figure out how we want to identify players on the field, and should there be twelve offensive players and ed a flex player at an extra running back. You know you don't WanNa have a guy that wins at two positions like Christian. McCaffrey did last year running back and flex player things of that nature, so we're trying to sort through all of that and also defensively should there be a slot corner should there be to safety should be an edge. Edge rusher should be an outside linebacker house. Should we determine the name so I've been going through emails? I haven't really given my thoughts on. It there have probably been a good fifty emails that have been written back and forth between all the voters, and there are a lot of very very smart people on there, so I started rereading the book. The Patent Papers Jerry see this. Yes, so there are a thousand pages in his thousand pages and pages and I love reading this book. Heading back to the studio one of these days and I. Know you're out here, were you? So when we get back to the student I just have to be refreshed on. How George Patton was a leader and. you know, make sure that I picked. Pick it up when I get back there and make sure that you guys know who's large and in charge, but the point being is that I have read every single one of these emails and they're so well thought out about what the. Team should look like in the NFL and Barry Wilner. He's the guy who runs up for the AP has has had to decipher all of these emails right and I haven't even given my point of view yet. Which would? We'll come like if I want to? If I wrote one this morning? Everybody on this email list will be ticked off that I waited until after everybody else already. In their in their own unique way yet, but as long as the decision hasn't been made yet. You still have time and everyone should shut it. I just think that there are so many good points by so many people on the on the committee. It goes to show you how committed! We are to get it right and make sure that we recognize the right players, and rightly so and you take your voting very seriously I do I do by the way that book is so thick. AL's apartment is so small. You could use that as you kitchen table L.. Oh how much was? Thousand Pages. What would it take? I always like to do this with Al. how much money would it take to get you to read that? There's not gonNA, cover I. It would take me two years three years. No, it would you'd. You'd get yourself immersed into. This doesn't really include World War Two. It only goes up to nine hundred forty with General George Patton. Once they get to the World War Two part. That's when I that's when I know that I got it on lockdown. I'm ready to go again. Mentally and I get in there and I can get on you guys and make sure that you're doing what you're supposed to be doing. Time out by the way large charge you haven't been here. You know what the Hell They're telling me not to be there. What do you want me to do? That is true Matton do. Patent would probably fight through and just show up well. Pat And all while he doesn't. He didn't follow orders either. At the end of that like be here that I can follow some orders. Not if you. Coach I. was somewhat coach -able. You know. That was the the knock against me coming out of college. Yeah, yeah, coach will anymore in would be that coach bill in charge, but absent by the way Yes who the hell is by the. Oh, I thought I thought it was Al but als inside. Why am I hearing the Ocean in the background? Because he goes out on outdoors for whatever minute he's out by the ocean, you live in freehold. What Ocean are you by? Coming to you live from ocean city. New Jersey this morning. And why are you must be nice? I am here with my extended family. My parents rented a house for the week.

It was just the flakes hitting the bowl the. Bowl and that you know, send GEOS radar. Dog slurp when she's eaten. That's the worst now. No, she's a proper. I dated a girl wants I took out the during college and. Flushing. Marilyn, will this we want to Armand's pizza on Route? One and we ordered a pizza was a deep dish pizza and I reached in grabbed my slice. It took a bite. And I watched this girl just like she. She had eaten like in three. W. Or something? And that was the end of that. I can't do she also the one that like chlorine. No that was a swimmer that was. Why Do Swimmer Kenny Pizza? Well, she could, but now I don't know she she, she was fine this one. Aggressive with the deep dish pizza and she had two slices done before I even had my first lies half-ton. I'm with Jerry I figured. That could have been the swimmer burnt so many carry Michael felt like what four thousand calories a day or something crazy. You know the funny thing about this conversation is. Is Out with that person. You would have got a salad and food. Shame tour. I was at one time with a girl on a first date and we got an appetizer platter. You know where they have a bunch of different appetizer sampler. Yes, sampler and she ate everything their fingers. Like? She was using her fingers on survivor. Like survivor how they eat rice. They just pick everything up. It was so bizarre I couldn't wait till you. Had to get out of there. So how did you did you? Didn't go back. No. I was so thrown off by it right. He's he's the quirky is SOB. You've ever met. You think he's going to stand for the have. No chance all right six thirty five. Let's get some sound from Ceelo down the Jersey shore and don't be distracted by the ocean. That is the ocean. He is outside on the terrace, enjoying himself what Chris that's right, we're brought to you by winters. Bros. waste systems creating a cleaner and greener long island to learn more visit winters Bros. Dot com the one in Kubota world. We're living in right now. You are working across the street from the beach outside boomers in his palatial estate. God knows where and Al moved across the street from the ocean, and you're sitting in the studio, just like Old Times. What a bizarre time at. Home that's not true. Except my house till eleven o'clock anyway. Eleven you and your wife about eleven. Why can't get up in between twelve and two? They're having a great. Day or having a blast, yes. It'd be now. What. Should never turned during shutting them. No, they stay up late. They get up late. We're good, not bad. I'm sorry. On. Had A couple of close games between the mets and the braves, then last night at city field a laugher. Too Breaking ball hit to left field. Forget it this one's orbit. This once headed off the facing the third deck titanic Homerun for Austin Riley the second solo home run for the braves in this inning. That's right sixth-inning calls, WCBS. Game enjoyed this home run in the Empty Park because you could hear the thud off the off the deck, and even off the bat you heard everyone on the breathes dugout reactors tremendous because you had fans. Obviously a Rick Portillo was long gone at that point tag for seven runs, six earned across to, plus in his mets debut the braves to the five spot in the thirty pound, the mets fourteen to one. They take two out of three in the season opening series. Here's Portillo on what could have been. A couple more pitches and and throw some throw some better changes maybe different story and we're in it. You know a lot longer lot later tonight. Then we were, it was over pretty quickly. Obviously, only six hits for the mets nothing across after stinks. Devil so that's five runs total for the mets across the first three games including the extra innings Saturday, what Lewis Row House think of his offense for the most part I saw guys chasing and later fastball. Breaking, balls out front, and you know that's that's not want. They even had the one at bat with Cesspit as I think it was the second I think it was the second inning. We're a couple of guys on and need a three account I think it was three Oh, and he wound up chasing a pitch high in a way on three two. So. He's right about that. They did not have many good at bats aside from. McNeil, who seems to hit everything? Not many good at bats at all last night from this team are off the Boston now two game series with the Red Sox beginning tonight at fenway than they come back to city for two later in the week, Michael Walker will follow Forsillo in making his mets debut. He's opposed by Josh. or Of course go five by the way at what a union's injured in last night's game is he pinch hit for Michael Conforto in the eighth legs out an infield shopper. Then he got in a collision at first base. He went down holding the leg all that good stuff or bad stuff. Eventually, he walked off with Haas. He was to be reevaluated today. Things went much better for the Yankees in DC. They take two out of three from defending champion. Nationals come from behind victory Sunday afternoon pitches. Swung on and drilled a deep that boss high. That is far. Ed has gone three rows back in the left field seats. Oh, that void is a droid. He homers to love field to tie the game at two so good to have gone back on the field cutlet. Listening I listened to them a lot this weekend. They set aside from there are issues with the screen and the Monitor Monitor. They're working off of there are certain times. They can't really see where the ball is going off the bat and it takes a second. And that's going to happen to everybody. That's doing these games on the road on the radio when they're doing it. The Home Stadium, but I thought his voice which we know is a Jama. Refreshed and so crispus weekend it was actually a pleasure listening Fred. I heard Gary Cohen talking about. Doing the game from Citi field goes. We do have enough monitors to see the entire field. They give us the high up monitor. Okay Cameras, so I can see everything that's happening, so I would imagine the Yankees are doing the same thing for John and so, but I think they took, but don't they take the video feed of the home team, but every home team has a high camera shots and that's doing. Is that true yes? That's Gary, said yesterday well. It's not the live broadcast feed that we're seeing. They're getting. It says if they're sitting in the production truck. That has all the director. Whatever carries asking for what we're seeing on TV. He's also has a high shot, so you can see the entire field and what's happening and so we could call. The the game correctly wherever the ball's going, and how far it is, but what road game have had have they done? What are you talking about? Gary and Keith and Ronnie well they haven't they? They've been in the stadium, but he was talking about. As I guess they did one road game when the the the the exhibition game at the act sure. Wasn't complain. Let's everybody to shut up stop. At them. And they weren't complaining I said by the way certain times. It's tough to track the ball off a screen. That's all I was counting in. I'm in the middle of counting it because I know CEELO's in the middle of his update. You've already interrupted Ceelo four times. Thank, you know your background being update guy that you would appreciate not interrupting the update guy. Conversation I get the same experience. He gets right to make sure it's authentic right Jerry. listen something sparks my thought. I'm going to say that's all all right fair, the wise it's gone, because reminds mush most. Void home run. The seven came shortly after Labor Torres. It got the Yanks on the board with a Solo homer of his own. That doc Patrick Corbin out of the Game Torres. Then delivering the go ahead RBI single in the eighth yanks held on edge, the nationals, three, two two Aaron Boone's Club fighting back, but he's got the no new catchphrases for them here in two thousand twenty. I don't have a slogans i. didn't necessarily intentionally have one in nineteen. You know I always think our guys are savages, so that will never go away, so that'll stick. Here's void says always good to start the season on a high note. Now's a big series and you know that seems definitely GonNa, be fine for you know A. Spot so it's good to get off to a hot start. You know the guys are feeling good, nice bullpen work, and this one too Jonathan. Isaac basically opened. He got them three innings of one run ball that was followed by hail out of Vino. Green, keenly and Britain. Have Great and Bonifazio thrown out, not thrown out to sliding over citing the base. Help train. Yes, it did and you had keenly getting out of a bases loaded jam in the eighth strict. Came was the had to change up working, but he was victimized by the Labor Tour Era Right? Yes, yeah, look. You gotTa make those placemen. Well. He made up for by. You know he had the home run. Game Let's stop being negative and shut up. Let me tell you something. Good thing boomers, not their next to you James you sixty miles away, we're. Go ahead. What do you WanNa? Tell you I was just GonNa say that that's the one bugaboo about him. That he, he blows a routine play in the in the middle of Laura late in the game that could have cost the team. He also accounted for two thirds of their offense. Yeah, I look you know Ceelo I expect you to do a shortstop. What are expect you to do at shortstop make? Supposed let them supposed to make. That's half the game. You're out in the field and then the other the other time get up, get on base. Somebody could knock you in fair enough tanks on the Philly to face Joe Girardi is club for to you. Jay HAP- opposed by Jake Arrieta in tonight's opener. We got pre game on the fan. Six twenty five first pitch 705 speaking of the fills. They lost to the MARLINS. Yesterday's two out of three eleven to six. Six that's right, but the story with the MARLINS here is that they've had multiple players test positive for the coronavirus over the course of the last couple of days, including Sundays scheduled starter, Jose Rena and he was scratched on. They actually are delayed I. Guess I. Don't know if it's happened yet, but they weren't able to travel home right away. Because of the concerns and the possible outbreak here manager Don Mattingly addressing his team situation. We're going to have to be war. We're going to have to be flexible. We're going to be patient or we're going to deal with. A lot tried to set ourselves up to deal with a lot and other kind of right in the center of again, not sure if they've been able to travel home to shed, but they were at least delayed Sunday play Baltimore tonight. Is that right at home in Miami correct? I saw that correctly this morning. Then you got the Justin verlander situation with the astros, so he pitched on. Friday. I guess it was and they took. took him out early and a little bit of forearm stiffness. You had the Houston Chronicle report yesterday. My phone's blowing up like mid afternoon Justin. verlander out for the season, and then shortly after that you had lander. Basically saying I'm not sure yet. I'm going to give it some time. In rested up his forearm strain. Hopefully I'll be back doesn't sound good. It does not sound good. Here is dusty Baker. Before I think the chronicle story had broken, he was updating the media on Orlando's lenders condition before the game yesterday. He wanted to go some more. He's done the ball well. There's just a shame over overdue, said Hey, man. Arms little tender, and that's when we took him out, and then he had verleger tweeting out yesterday. The report that I'm currently missing. The rest of the season is not accurate. There is a forearm strain I'm hopeful with some rest it'll heal, and I'll be able to return soon so we'll keep an eye on that situation as we move forward. You guys remember maybe three or four weeks ago I. Forget who is Inter out. That day mentioned Shohei Ohtani I exhibition outing. Seven guys and hit another in like fifty pitches. How bad! Go yesterday right? So he goes out for his season debut. Yesterday did not record an out. He allowed three hits. He walked three charged with five runs, angels, but onto lose the not to the race. Who did they played Jerry I? wrote this Enron, angels as thank you as yes. Six four was the final, and now here's his new manager. Joe Madden not about to sugarcoat Otani performance well, he just throw the ball very well. I mean I can't sit here and make excuses for my mocking to do that. It just wasn't as day. fastball wasn't coming out. There was no deception his pitches. That fantastic exactly here's why I said the raise because I'm getting to them next extra innings at the trump, and they got themselves a walk off victory swings. Online's went down the right field line for a base ed all the way to the corner rounding third. It's Smith. Score the tying run Martinez, third, being waived. He's on his way digging for the wake the throw. Time raise when he go raise radio game winning two run trip four nothing to cure Myers. They beat the Blue Jays six to five on Nice Win for them on their home field where they're Houston nobody being. Like me, you guys covered the Jamal Adams situation obviously over the weekend as I I, don't know how Joe Douglas ended up with a couple of first rounders with everything that went on the last week or so really the last couple of months, but that's the case, so the jets forward now with Somali draft capital to show for trading away their all pro safety. He and Leon Bell Avenue a little bit of A. A back and forth on twitter over the weekend which I don't know it kind of seemed good natured based on Bell's last week. I don't know if you guys felt the same way I know. There was some talk of see on the field week fourteen and whatnot, but I guess they had spoken in recent weeks and we'll see all plays out, but Adams gets what he wanted. He gets traded to a contender and. Some along the way they'll pay him the money. He's looking for as well while they better, I mean they. They traded four. Players form, essentially starting safety McDougal and then they also have to. Of Two, first rounders and a third rounder Jetson a fourth round or back the other way, but. You don't make that trade and not pay that guy yeah. I would think so, so you know it's like the Camille Khalil Mack Trade. It's that's exactly what it's like. The LAREMY Tunsil trade, so pointed out those guys play marquee positions whereas shrew, maybe not so much, and those and usually make a trade like this. Because you think you got a chance to make it to the Super Bowl. When you have Russell Wilson as your quarterback I can understand why you would do something like this and. Pete Carroll said that the opportunity to get a player of Jamal Adams. Stature is extraordinary so now. I'm sure that that is music to Mr. Adams ears and I'm sure that his agent would like to go in there to John Schneider. Their GM and say by the way. Did you hear what your coach just said about the player that you just acquired now pay him twenty million dollars a year. That was like the real reebus, isn't it? It it it does. Most of the time I come down on the side of the player getting to what he wants and how he wants to get it, because the NFL contracts are so restrictive, so part of me appreciates what Jamal Adams did and how he basically. Basically put himself out there and really said Hey. Look Man I'm worth this kind of money. Somebody's GONNA. Pay To me I. Just don't like the way he went about it, but I don't necessarily know. That, he could one about it any other way and got what he wanted. He got what he wanted all right. Team to exactly you. Covered Algebra gross in the open. I believe I. Heard you mention that and the Knicks still working on finalizing this five year. Deal with Tom. Tobacco to make him the new head coach Chris don't go jump in the ocean.

Controllable which means that Due to the fact that the tenure. For going away rain to somewhere between indefinite to never. Or aggressive indeterminate to never yeah. We had to make some concessions to make some concessions and for that Monica I'm still ridiculously careful with stuff. Because for the record I haven't gone to work every day. This whole thing like I go to the Office Day many people do many people have no choice oh yeah. You know and and and like but you gotTa make when you do and I'm just fortunate that when I go in I. Bear since control of whom around because I go to my office, I can stay in there and if people were doing the thing like I got the mask onto my nose like well, you can stay out there and do not in my room you ain't. But you know only going like a little bit here and there just to keep keep up on like the the network make sure it's fine but. I've been doing. Remote support for everybody and there's this one woman and he's a little bit older and I'm having I'm just tired of trying to figure out her I'm so tired of trying to figure out her home Internet connection issues over the phone that I'm making a house call tomorrow. That's it. I'm just coming over I'm going to rewire everything it this cat who all over the floor. No anchor that she's no, it's not shouldn't be like now she doesn't like cats. Tupperware all things she likes animals, stacks Tupperware, but I'll. I'll take some tupperware if she's got some extra stacks of PS four titles all over the house she's like Do. All these PS three Gabes. PS. Teak today. Honestly. That's bioshock. You can't get that anymore. You can't. Very masterly twice. I feel about overall you just I make deal like I don't do much ever what what I do stuff I'm consistent and careful about it and I just make do with the best can yeah us too. We we took some time off for vacation because we have a lot of traveling. Then after an appropriate amount of time, we decided to just go off ourselves to to the beach, which was actually really nice I feel like you went to one of those secluded ones unfortunately well, actual- Actually. Ocean city Maryland there. There were a bunch of people there but it wasn't like it usually is as I've been told 'cause I've never been to ocean city Maryland before I went there once by a mistake mistake and I can't believe it's it's a it's a bit of a ways from where you were expecting to go. My friend was very, very high. And behind the wheel and behind the wheel perspective for people are like what the heck. Prom night after prom, bunch of friends and I drove to pretty much like just to hang out at the beach for that weekend. So we all got my car and drove off. Of course while driving also they wanted us you know partake of the greenback's as they call them out, they call it that but you know what I'm talking about. Yeah and use those and I was captain no use. As we still am but of course, I'm in the car with everybody. So it's only inevitable. I'm going to get some of it. is I fell asleep because I just passed out in the. You told me a little bit of the story but like what did you guys do get there? Oh so what happened was we were going to one beach and. Green for we hope we were GONNA Rehoboth had I passed out on the way down. And when I came to, we were at a beach that I thought was. Because never been to the beach. So it's only natural right turns out. We were at Ocean City Maryland and the knucklehead just drove straight past with all the way to another beach in another state, which is to do because there's really no other streets. It's just one highway that goes for a long time. It's called left I saw it's called a the Coastal Highway Coastal Highway It's an island it goes over into an island. It's called a barrier island. Okay and he going down south and it cuts off from Delaware to Maryland which crazy is the line from Delaware to Maryland everything changes because suddenly it's super developed and it looks like a city city interest but in Delaware. All National Park, it's all preserved. Motionless Except for like. Tickets further. Six further. Further out south. On its own like island area but up. We went to Louis, which is a super sleepy little kind of farm farm mostly farm town. And then we went to Tell you so are we? We rented a Condo? The first day we just cleaned the crap out of it and then. The right outside the back is the beach and there is partly anybody out there. It was really nice. Because everyone's being really careful and even like when we're driving around. People playing golf that everyone's like being like pretty far apart from each other. To that whole thing like well, only once they is hard to even gauge what's true was not anymore. But what I do know is that. I'm mostly my main drive is to be outdoors. If I go one says hey pernell. You do you want to do this thing? My philosophy is it outside? Yeah. I wanted to be outdoors too. That's what I like. Because I can do being outdoors is great. It's also just because by virtue of concepts. Open air is what you want. Yeah. Yeah. Because of this situation that we're in. Yeah. Yes, we. Want, so I'm like. I can feel better. Well, we didn't really go anywhere like really populated until the very end where we were like, okay. Let's stop by rehoboth poured walk see how it is there, and that's a popular like it was like that's where I wouldn't go it was insane pulled up now I was like Oh. No. Out, we backed out. Good good say, why would you go? Well, we went to Iran or we went to a restaurant like two blocks away from like the main drag and that was like Super Nice like they cut the seating really far apart. They were super careful and I'm looking outside and I'm like how it's kind of Nice. Let's go for a walk and then suddenly it was just not it was people didn't care. Best that's why kids everywhere that's why you couldn't pay. There are people who actually live there regularly on forms I frequent complain about how they came have the town anymore now they're probably just like I can't wait until winter all these people go away take take. Away because it is it was terrifying. So that was like, okay, that's it. You know we can. Just you can drive. But I spent a lot of time in the water I spent a Lotta time playing games and that's all I do. we have some time. What's the first game was? What's the first thing to think that you played Well, it's. Going to the episode proper too but we reviewed. The topics. Do this for so. It's on the file. Oh, beautiful download and put. Number. Think about that. But like. It's Nice review into requests to yes it's funny because. I actually is never happens, but actually finished the game during the review. Sign. Right yes and no. So I finished the game. Before it even released on store shelves like it came out. Yes. I've been there. Came out yesterday and I've already beaten and I'm playing new game plus which is also shocked for people I would bit like I had such mixed feelings about it because like when you do game reviews. Thing when you've played it, you you don't do gave of game win it releases, and then you play you have a bit of a different opinion than folks or then reviewers had like you know. I'm not quite sure I'm on the same page that guy. Something completely different when Noah's reviewed it. Your review it and AS Roma's reviews are getting on the floor at the same time. You see like your the duck who was like you're the one who sat there you play through the entire thing which maybe probably listen reviewers didn't haven't played the entire thing and you're like, wow, everyone has a different take than I do. But in this case, the take was I. Felt like I was being really nit-picky. So beginning example because I wanNA make this whole about this whole show about the death in request show but So definitely request without what is going to be a spoiled because the second game. The game reveals a plot point that the world is made of Code Mike Our World is a programmed space and that it can be manipulated through coding Yeah So stop at. So the first game takes place. Imo. So in the world, they involve things about glitches and stuff. So when there's moments where the characters glitch out and they get these, we're which to billy's called glitch mood and it's like, okay this makes sense if bitch with Mukasa. First Game. It's like takes place on a computer game. Playing In the second one it's like Oh wait it's not computer game. It's real life. Yeah essentially. Yeah. Who? Takes place and know the world. Proper and so things are happening but. These events occurred during that are so far removed from what you'd expect the Games inhabitants to know and understand that it. It breaks focus. So the game was written by the guy who wrote the corpse party series for those who don't know corpse party by the title load is a horror themed franchise very they make very good use of sounds to convey disgust and horror. Like. The characters get power from the blood of other things. I'm not even sure what game that is you tell me how about a lot of weird games? That is true. I'm trying to piece together but like so this game is also a horror themed game. So the general premise that the main character is a girl who after a really unfortunate where she has to kind of. Well I don't WanNa go into that part, but ultimately she ended up in this town. At a remote town where she's at an all girls like you know orphanage. Wayward girls up there and she gets told early in the game like you don't go after midnight almost like a Maguire and. Of course, she does and when she goes outside the town looks really weird and creepy. There's like red vines like coming of the buildings is no one around she never once says, why are there red vines from coming out of the walls? What is happening with this tale? Nothing makes sense. She fights Mosser's the first night. From that I oh my God what is this thing? It's just she doesn't react to it any more and the stupidest element up to one. Exists in the game so Glitz gray act like it's normal. Like no one acknowledges that their world is pushing out the warnings. Now they are witching. These are your nitpicks I picked the heck is getting but then the biggest thing that shocked me was like big company, I love them the death they advertise it as a game. You play this without playing the first game just jump right in just joined the secret, and of course, I understand why they say they want that money. But I play through it and a lot of reviewers were saying in agreeing with them like, Oh yeah. He can jump right in and make sense like no it doesn't first of all. If you play the second game, the first game good good Ching makes no sense second of all they do bring characters in from the first game and the game does tie into the narrative of the first game too so by. Jumping into the second game, you lose a so much only. So. For me I'm almost thinking. You May as well just play the first game you get it for cheaper and if you like it that much, you'll just play the sequel anyway but. I was the only guy who made that comment of all the reviewers I came across I was one. Plays without plan the first one, it just doesn't make sense of it. He said he had a call with. An is yeah yesterday I had They did a press release conference. Oh, I thought it was like that was like a work related like government thing that would be hilarious. The national something's. Deportees software SNL they did. Call with the yeah. But like a press release conference call where they had everybody McCall, we were talking they announced the new releases coming up the stuff and you're like an episode five of its she and scratch. They get out without you in the wizards Kate but like it was actually pretty cool. Next episode Joe's probably going to ask me like talk about that co I'm going to be like you know it's got stuff. I was absolutely sober during that call I. was. I wouldn't have been if I didn't want to be I just chose to be. Oh. That's depressing. That's good. Though I'm glad that like. That that you have the that those reviews them and giving you direction. In in the directed towards a game. It sounds like you've really enjoyed if you've played it that much I play piano tire game and I'm playing new game plus and even with the nitpicks I, had four alternately I came away saying I enjoyed this experience and I ve clearly am playing it again to get the the. The backup details for the new ending 'cause once you beat the game game plus pretty much you play the game again, which is a dumb element because you get all your staff and kind of blow through stuff but they unlock story bits that weren't there the first time seeking kinda learn more about what's going on. Well, that's cool. So it gives you a reason to kind of go back through it again, like you're not it's going. To blow the story open but like it kind of gives you a little bit more detail but it helps at the game is short because it's on a five does something like that too only just put that bonus bosses but I'm not planning to personify the because long ahead. I'm not playing one hundred hours again for one boss s ridiculous for me like I know people that have done it more power than my friends at. Did it. I'm not do is also why play through royal yet because despite having cool new content at the end and even some dispersed throughout the main game as the game, it's just this is still mainly, the game is still one hundred plus hours. Most of which I've experienced before. So it's like. Yeah the game was great. Yeah. I probably would enjoy it if I played it again, but I have a plethora of brand new experiences that I had not touch it. So I have a hard time getting revved up for it again. So I guess that says something that people like you know choose where you're gonNA put your time. You know it'd be careful with that time. And remember and remember you only have so much time literally. Really. All, right. So our topic is terrible too weird character names and games. Okay. So That's really easy. Surprisingly is. Become who work the hardest on this thing. Yeah, maybe like that, and also I think we can just laugh. We can just like, oh. Yeah. You're right. That is a dumb name some I have some that are pretty obvious. I won't say I cheated but I got a little weird because what actually happened for me was like the idea for this as a general question is I posted it to a bleep posting group and I already lamed a bunch of these the ones that came to mind for me and they're pretty much chose for this episode except for one which I learned about because of that bread, it was so bad that I was like we bring this up on the show we got to be a topic. There's one that Dave is terrible one I couldn't find any I. Don't think is music for, but it was the dumbest name. Was Mario. Punch out and they re is Don Fomenko was originally named. Pizza. Pasta you're joking not shirk Oh Jeez. Yeah. That's pretty bad and so that's that's what we're working with. This is an odd episode. So I start the do you WanNa do you WANNA lead off with like with with the name is going to be them play the music and play the music, and then we have to guess the name I'll play the music for the game bring up the name. Okay. So meeting off and we were just talking about earlier this is a fitting first choice. So this comes from the game death and request to and the title. Thanks to a loose translation from friend and patron member Brian picked his actually called Ren the flesh in Sunday the bones. By sukey Aura Yuki. Welcome back you're listening to ren the flesh and sunder the bone. You that is a loose translation friend who did it is pretty good at this. I'm sure it's fairly accurate from the game death and request to Caputo's Suji or Yuki. So. This game as it was building up in me settling into the game itself as opposed to complaining about the stuff I mentioned earlier in the episode this was probably the main driving force to keep me going because this battle theme is lit this like it's it's super fast I. Really like the Violin by towards the end section of the loop that resolves That's really cool at one thousand put her on Halloween. Figure issues like the boat, the final boss theme been Halloween time but So we're GONNA hear a lot of debt then requests to music. He just might because ask the entire Os t is very, very good boy as for the theme of the episode why picked this track? Well, the main character whose name as he just cut randomly clicked in my head. To her name is Mike Toyama. My Toy. So her dave is my Toyota and she when she gets to the all girls school, she makes her first and best friend name rotten doll heart. And that's not a nickname, her nickname is roddy. Real name is this Rut Dr. my mother's name is be drip dollar. So somebody out there thought it'd be a great idea to name a character rotten tomatoes. A pretty much a strange. Fun Translation. I, think her name is literally rotten and it drives me crazy because for the majority of the game. Is this a spoiler, but for the majority of. This name has to mean something she has to be like actually tainted me or like a monster in disguise or it's Really, bad name. I can't cute. Kids making fun of name at no point, the game no one goes Roddy Roddy stinking taty. Smelling rotten fruit though it does any of it is literally just. As A, we're all cool with it. Yeah were everyone. Cool with that is that we're GONNA go with that. Everyone's like this tackling like it's normal rate care for the first time Mondays right and she's like, okay. You Babes what? was happening in the game at everyone's to sort of like ignoring right but nobody knew that happens the gave most of the people in these early on don't know it. So she literally just main ragged and everyone's cool. What the game he leaves. It's fun in the narrative is awesome to RPG's are going to have some silly names for the most for the most like generally speaking. Fighting Games are also GONNA have some terrible names. So surprised, I'M GONNA play streetfighter track. I'm telling you we're GONNA Mitchell, come up with. A great. Great great issue to. Know this one is street fighter ex cade. Skull Ameinias Sculler Mingo. All these new characters and like these returning review and Charlie and. Akira and then Scuola mania because it's he's a dude in a skintight score Nathan like if I'm not mistaken, he wasn't even like a TV show character in the universe he wasn't like an Acrobat. He was literally just a guy in a suit guy in school suit that's what he is and very weird. But I, guess they brought them back through all three versions of this game. A SCUOLA mania. So. This is this. This is the theme of Skull. Called ME I. Got To be able to see this they meet up somewhere here an amusement. Amusement of crime crime. Oh and maybe a criminal Anita's use that as as cost. Yeah. Like a clown I'm GONNA, look it up and maybe find some fan fiction and we'll read it when we come back but leave the fact that this is. For me maybe now. If you're lucky even out soundtrack was composed by Takayuki iheart Shinji. And I Echo Sasso new credit specifically to which composer on this song now. So here's the theme Scuola Mania. You're listening to the theme, of Skull, the Mania Amusement of crime from the Game Street fighter e expert Arcade composed by Takayuki harsh century, and so I and I al Saso. The track is actually fairly fun and festive kind get the amusement of. Yeah. It's. It's weird right It's it's it's an interesting. It's an interesting song. You do like it for like a all the crazy pitch bends in the beginning like right here where it's like music. I like that like to me like that's best. That's almost classic Capcom sound like Arcadia sounding but then he gets in this weird like amusement park light isn't this. Thing? Yeah. Makes you feel the flow baby area? Who Is Skull Menia? Let's see. We, don't know. There's a Guy Moscow off. Okay. Here he is. Straight from a wikipedia page to your ears. podcast said do that but I just I find this. So Weird. Cola Media he was once an average salesman nick called Subaru Nishigaki Nishiyama his superiors were not pleased with this result is a salesman down on his luck constantly under pressure for results he was forced to act in a hero show at the department store which employment growth. Right here we go. Say Why has the story during the performance? He felt an indescribable passion to awaken within him and decided to become a vigilant and crimefighter swearing to protect the world from evil as a result he began to compete against top martial artists by them on even plainfield i. kind of Chuckle Never Guard because he just picture the idea of a guy who You know before this all happened he wasn't actually physically fit like that. He wasn't practicing marcy literally was a salesman just a guy just the guy, and then like it's almost like one punch man syndrome here what he's like I'm going to become a fighter a vigilante after war in which. At one point yesterday two years but still. This guy just overnight becomes a crimefighter and he's like people who trained in the martial arts, their entire lives. Nothing. Nothing like. meaning. He gets jumped super super high in the air. It's the scarf. A scarf it's the scar What I saw him I thought it was like the developers were like, okay. We gotta make a normal character model a he lets. Let's improve on that and they just let it in again on me, but there is scuola media. Song very cool. Arcade sound. I honestly always felt like street fighter ex plus Alpha had T-. Fairly unique of every capcom. They might did it really did it's good to I really enjoy it. But maybe I want Russians say every category every Capcom streetfighter. Well also the the X. Games had different sound to a lot of it is is the big composers are completely From. Different companies develop the game grab hand in. Isn't anyone did the new game fighting the x layer which is kind of like a successor to I didn't think I was going to be into of this thing when I first saw it when I was younger. On because it was three D.. Flutie I got really into it and it's own. That's why yeah. For and she was great the the the Super Moves Kinda chain together. If you like if you've built up your meter long enough, you can go at one of the next the next one. Is Cool it's good to game. But skull mania, I mean not a great name but a cool game. was affordable. The other teenage Hyun have come up with our cause also as I like topics like this because they make you all I try to I hope that they make you kind of like dig a little deeper where some of the other names out there. I can dig up. Bang, some of mine are a little on this, but you'll find out. This. Person's name is. Your character named here. All I should have chosen that one from Wrestlemainia for the. We're just you. Just why Oh you it's actually in Japan that was translated from you. God. Fabulous terrible and I'm proud of it. Survived next track comes from game that is no stranger to me in this podcast. But of course, again, when I originally came up this topic, I already had names from gains I had been playing. So of course. This track comes from the game you know trails of cold steel to legend Heroes and title is severe blow and is composed by hiatus Onoda in a hero suge. Welcome. Back you're listening to severe blow from the game legend of heroes trails of cold steel to compose by hiatus Onoda and Takahiro only suge. So we're at proposed this topic people where I was like. Bad character names you've heard of some of them as people were given were just lazy like were pretty much naming them because they just hate the characters like someone was like Klaus Strike, which don't get me wrong. Cloud strife isn't a great name. On the Nose Oh God, he's suffering seen so much strife in his life move but clouds strike whatever. Or Hero. H. I. R. O. Heroes The show us. Is Been Done. Hero is a thing you know on the beautiful Joe. Hey. Track. Joe's awesome speaker but them thought no why? People thought it because they had to agree with me 'cause I brought up immediately never thought. Of the name Mick Byrne a guy named Byrne Mick Byrne Bird now, his name Mick Byrne Yeah but he is one of the most powerful and both in strength and in the In the game's main villain organization. Can you imagine like cover up to those guys like far just take out the blast enforcer. We can move forward to take up the you know the ringleader and he shows up the arms crossed like welcome I am bird. Like what are you just like picked like McDonald's m. in the background catching ablaze late. Mr Burns and like McDonalds row. McDonnell makeup. You're right. It's not it's not the intimidating the image of. It's terrible. He has actual intimidating nicknames. Okay. It's called the Almighty conflagration. That's pretty good and the blazing demon. Of Fire, yeah he's a very fiery guy. Burn it's. Fact that. If anything, I would never wear you in Commun- pearn because it's just pathetic me it's it's someone got his always. Come across these names it's not even justice. The character has the name I. Remember We've had Mick Byrne. So it's just like it's like share. Madonna just one name. Yes it is not even a good one is. If like when you think about it is not always necessarily just the character in the universe has to live with the main this also the fact that against someone in a studio whether translator or in Japan. Officially sat down and said, you know we have this guy was his ability well, he has a sword allows him to manipulate and control flames. Okay. That's pretty stress. Pretty Awesome or should we name? We got we got all causing got like, Saito you've got ricky coon just once a weird nasal making up that are just like general this guy goes. Burn. Yeah Ferdie, you know what? I'm not released like four months maybe we can top that for the game comes McDonald's got a serious case of Bassett reflexive called this Guy Mick burn some of the We just got the MIC burns. You got burned. You Got Mc? Burn he got McBurney name is horrendous. And it's funny I'll tell this on the show proper too because like we were joking about it I think and you made a com, which is legit, which is that on that Nippon et called I talked about earlier in the show one of the things they previewed force on there was trails a coal steel forwards comes only two months and they show like a demo area like The players running to gain some of the new battle with Canada And everybody else McCall was like Oh man what does this game coming out? I can't wait when you release view codes apply and I'm the one guy McCall like. Take as long as you want, don't release the review lose because every time a review trails coal steel game I have to spoil the previous one for myself because I'm never caught up, you're trying to get these games are huge. So it's like I. Know I'm in there what I'm in there for Amir to review the new mechanics and things change because you can't spoil the story because it's a continuous plot but. I'm exploring it for myself. So it's like what this sucks, but it's also free though it doesn't councilmens becomes still buying this game those a one Michelle. So a game notorious. Tory for having bad names city names mean not fat but just silly really silly names the mega man x series. Oh is this going to be from fi EXPI- I called it. Mean See. Definite whales stuff make wail it. Good cause not only is it a really silly name? It's good song I really like this. This is composed by now toe Tanaka naive coming you sucker and tell you Juara for the Sony, playstation Ladies and gentlemen. Put Your Hands Together. For Duff Mick Wayland. Back. You're listening to music from the game mega man x five. The theme of Duff Mick Whelan. which was then during the I think was released as the this the ex, the series before we get. We, get into that before we get got acknowledged that. This wasn't his original name. So in Japan but for people who've played mega man x the franchise, all the Mavericks Original Mega. Man Games, they were always liking no object main or a property mainly. Fireman or? You know rental real estate signposts, Main Yang, macho man, you're macho man. Mega man x games. The mavericks were all named after animals. Like a characteristic adjective, an animal. So like I don't know like Storm Eagle, which is an active, is just another word to describe him but you get the point launch octopus which. So. But for some reason, with mega man x five key people who did the translation for the game thought, it'd be quite corking to change all the characters names and make them represents to guns and roses song. So slash was grizzly slash. and His name was really crescent originally. I agree the Duff Make Waylon was originally titled Whale. And corrected this in the legacy edition, make everybody some all the systems but you know what? It's still tough make way on it will always be. ALWAYS BE MR DUFF Mr Duff Duff? Well. I Love I. Love That Care I. Just think it's a silly looking robot too because like it's like the head is the shape of a whale with like arms kind of sticking out of it. Kind of reminds me of twin. Be You know where it's like a plane with arm sticking out of one thing I find it especially interesting about this two things about this track in particular jerk, which is that this track is. Probably, one of the time I can think of like gaming gaming, but I guess kind of is where they chose a stage completely unrelated to the another stage but use that stage's theme as a Remix Forum for this one. So this track is a remix of the bubble crafty for Meghan Annex to okay. Okay and then the other thing that sounds familiar but in my mind I was like, Nah sounds like something for Castle Mania? A little bit of caffeine you man, yeah I'm thinking of from from Castellini Four. And I'll think the winter but the thing about this game which I think is interesting in that regard like if you play it now it won't have the same effect. But. I bought the when it came out on store shelves. Fresh releases them just your holy crap mega next five is I'm going to buy you go home you put it in you choose your first boss and it says the skydiver. And you're sitting there going what the heck is the skydiver what's his actual day like? From the moment, you would pick a boss and see whatever these fake names are were coming up. Something's wrong with my game. These aren't there real Dave's duff. Dick wailers. GonNa go on the Internet particularly look up real names. It was just this is the game. You got some reason to change her name I hadn't played a mega man game since I was real little and when I discovered the x series are still doing this because I didn't have superman superintendents. The X.. Games. The X.. Games So when I saw expire on the playstation I was like I'm going to try this out and I just got my butt handed to me over and over again, this is not an easy game though they are not. Okay what anyone says I'm yeah except for you. Here so eating. Actually, route now. To be very frenetic and they are, they are especially the expertise later x serious games there for fast and I will say. I had people hit me with that treatment myself where I'm like no x six stupidly hard and people with knows not really easy I'm like, Whoa. I just am really bad that because Alec Knowledge, the next six is ridiculously hard. I'm just not putting in the work guess exactly this not he added the system we have to save hostages from these things are just floating around the screen and if they get them, they kill the hostage. And that's their dead for the whole game. So you're gone from God forever. So you see them for the first time like. He did. Start over you. Know one of my favorite games ever it was the world series of. Eve's exodus in that game like it's almost like a puzzle game were trying to rescue the other little people in the in the in there that are trapped in this world are the be. Even gave their species name. Another they all have names like the the the the they create huge world. Individuals I mean I'm thinking species, the species I think I'm pretty sure they did by just. Now I was really into it but what I liked about it was so much of it's trial and error like you can't save everybody. And so you just expect casualties like out the game that kills me I. Think I wonder if that's all token of just I don't want to say modern game because I just made this comment about a game that came out in the late nineties but the fact that. I feel like I have to save every book like I can't just play a game and be okay with the fact that there will be losses there will be casualties. Yeah. There will be Elvis that you Jodi Nell die your great will suffer for at zero magnetic reference spending like this game it's like okay. Okay. Ten people I gotTa get through okay I'll hit this switch and all four of them through the next two SPLAT like spikes come in three of them like Okay K next time I. Won't do that. Because, there's no way around it. Him A neighbors, right? That's right. Yeah. My Neighbor's house notorious for that and that made me furious to no, it'd be a level where the guy just did. They just turn into where they don't get killed by them. They turn into the where wolves and that causes them dying. You know like I have a chance. Ridiculous one of the one of my favorite original Midway Arcade Games robotron Twenty twenty eighty four, whatever it's called robotron. you're supposed to see the humans, the bonus points for them, but if they get hit by a robot, the into super awful robots and they fly around the screen. So basically a big, it's not that you lose a character you'll just lose points. You gain a horrible adversary -absolutely and the the roundly the enemies are gone so he can leave people on the stage. So you WanNa leave the enemies for as long as possible the shape to save the people mom knits I love again that that's that's Geometry Wars I just actually I just loaded like a freeze pop song. They still like that were called. ICS Call Ruble. Oh Yeah Ansley. She Goes Road Phone Chronicle two thousand. Such a long time member that game and the whole songs about. Describing her experiences with Robotron Lear I. Think. One of the. Perfect game, you play with two joysticks at super. Bowl. Barking Button in. It's. Not, easy. No. my used to I was obsessed with in high school. I got to round thirty, and then like I never got better than that, does it have an ending I don't know but I've never been able to like recently. Passed around eight. To look up later to them. Curious ice this planet all time. Did you never play me insisting for invaded? Yeah. Yeah. It was the same as the playstation one I had that evidence sixty four. Okay. I think it was a weird angle is a kind of three D J were bic and blocked. The music was awesome music as crazy place some Michelle before. While surprise me you have picked it for sure I'm sure. Okay. So what's on your final one and it's kind of funny with the last track you picked team duff make wailing because the character named I picked this game. Acquired name due to similar reasoning being translation of its batteries nation or tenth totally intentional translation. Totally. Okay This game is called at. The alchemist of Arlen and the track titles call Full Boko as composed by Ken Nakagawa. When you say these names I type them down, so I can look them up and all that. You just had a bunch of words. Subject. Gibberish to me we're. GonNa Spell that later. Welcome back. You're listening to full Boko. Rob Says Boko that's battle of words from the game at Telia. Rona the alchemist of Arlene composed by Ken. Nakagawa. funky jam I love this, I'm loving keyboard. This is a fine example unfortunately games own 'cause I owned like every game so far behind in trying to experience them all. I'm pretty positive. I never will and I accept that but. I might have to at least play this one because. Every pick I've used for this episode was. Made that I found myself theft games I've played. This is the exception I had no choice. I could not avoid using this character's name is this show? Is the name Baako? No, I wish. So, this game's character that I'm afraid to name a s td. That is her name. In Japan, it was originally St Erhard or are hard. For some reason the Western travelers thought it'd be quite hilarious name std the just the acronym. Y D-. Oh. So it's pronounced SD. Great. Her name is actually Esti Who is Well she is a character who in the first gay keep in mind. This is also by learn agreed only because I need to play these games now but I've played at tailored, he's but not parlayed trilogy. She is a character who works in the adventurer's guild in the first game. Verona. So she basically like a caricature talk to she gives you quest embark on. She's there. She's there during requesting redistribution thing and after that she feels as though she cast she can't find husband and she's having more difficulty doing. So by working in the guild so she leaves working in the adventurer's guild to go on her own little journey of exploration. The second game she referenced, but she's not around and the third gay she becomes a bodyguard for some reason. Oh no another character. I gotta respect someone out there and changing careers like that. Oh. FDD's a career career. I. Like and I'm alright. Not so much with that name though because somebody at that companies to kicked in the but. It's a it's one thing if it was like you know official translation I, guess for cotta stuck with this. Great we took this this character. It just gave her a named as made for mocking. Yeah just like it's. Not even like safari in the background. You meet this character multiple times. Yeah. Multiple. Games like the person mid this name and the thread I was like what this threat down top in this and I stand by that belief because after many many replies, no one topped Esti. That's pretty good I. Can i Mike IT There I'm getting there. There's. Not a chain. So there is a SEGA genesis game. Okay with a superhero. And it is called Burgerman. Pick, and. Flick adventure. Boogeyman. He's he's a booger man. In that's what he is. He's a disgusting at the game is disgusting and Gross. I love how he has a sock with a hole on it. All of the stages are gross all toilet humor. Coops. Even when this game came out I was like I. Think I'm too old for this. But the soundtrack is composed by Matt Furnace. Really you know it's going to be some of the tracks are so good especially, and here's why. So he brought the funk I'm bringing genesis. This is from the stage called flatulent swamps. There's some there's some good FM since part sound happening in the background from the game booger man a pick inflict adventure for the sake of Genesis and the Sega Drive Oh mercy. report. Spend. Rebecca, you are listening to the flatulent swamps from Futterman, a pick and flick adventure for the Sega. Genesis composed by none other than Matt Furnace get them. I was saying earlier. Now, this has is in Books Party vibe to me. So much the style of composer composition or anything but just. In the composition of the track. He uses sounds to invoke. The grossness I'm assuming is on display on the game screen proper. So. Like you said, it's called swamp. This. is called the flatulence walks. So they're trying to do like that that second. Part squishy sounds yet in the music. This these aren't sound effects like added like throughout the game level it's actually part of the soundtrack. Interesting just. Like you, this is a sound sounds using to. Give you a sense of. At some personality to the Environment And he decided to choose the sound effect for the track that's meant to overlay and give personality to the environment. So it's almost like he's taking steps stepping on like squishy Baz at. Maybe the ground parts when he walks on it and it is the flatulence. The everything in this game is named really silly. Professor Stink bomb. and. He's trying to his lab is above the city Takeishi Dump Oh merce and they're trying to. Save the world from pollution by sending trash to dimension x criminal. Now. It gets worse. It gets worse from here. apparently, it was reviewed really well when it came out. It being a fun game to play although it was really just mainly just night to be gross out. The height. or at least not the height of for writing the code, the reading the wins, the flatulent winds of Ren and stimpy. came out in like almost came calmer winning can't became a ninety actually. This is Debbie. Reynolds to ninety two or something this came out like ninety six really. Far the Jesus over, it makes because it had the cut the bars that ahead that side panel, the Jesus didn't show towards the wife's but yeah, this definitely a I was thinking sixteen or seventeen and I was like I don't know about. Man I think teakamp attack lead no older men men. Now, there's a sequel. Booker met. Will I do not want to know what they're doing with the sequel but anyway, I mean, it's on the news, right? On the. Bam. I grew up with garbage pail kids. So for me grow things are just natural. I mean come on just like flatulence it's all. It's all very, very natural, very natural. Boorman Matt Furnace. I mean come on. That's Funky. I liked. You liked it Djing I think I liked the track but I also genuine like the flatulence including the track property. All right. Well, we'll give them a call and let them now but like you know that that was the right choice to make that's. Those beans perfect. I. Wonder if they were like, okay, we want you to work in all these cool games right and here's booger man and he's like, all right. Fine. My last one he's he's probably more like boogeyman finally a chest to flex my shop. These. My mind my my creative muscles. Get the juices flow. All right. I'm going to turn this track down in flatulence down and we're going to get into the part of the show. We call the bonus round. Rope. Boom. Now the bonus rats or we play covers and remixes and arrangements on our theme. And our theme silly name. So which she got for US personnel I cheated a bit because the name that I chose is in the series, but I couldn't find a remix recover from the game proper. PSI. Went back and went back a little bit. Okay. So I'm going to pick from this game and I'll bring up the name. So this is from the game star Ocean the second story The track title is called stabbed the sort of justice, the instrumental metal cover and is done by Daniel Tidwell. Such a good I. loved it. Yeah. How the original is it? I? mean. It sounds like how close is this melody did the original the perspective on the originals composed by me soccer robbers. Yeah Yeah. That's that's pretty close. So you heard no sense in this, but he's still a ridiculously good job with. What is this again stabbed the sort of justice instrumental metal cover from the game star. Ocean the second story composed by dangled tidwell. As I mentioned before original compose by motto a Motorcycle Rob, who is the WHO is, what's the name from says this has become one of my go-to names over the previous couple Jin's or a few years. The Name Asi comes from the Game Star Ocean four and the character is the main character who goes by the name of Edge Maverick and you WanNa talk about on the knows that was on the nose and man is being picked. This come on edge like edge maverick. He a starship captain. Mind you. So there is Linda. Self further to the maverick part is just so bad. was atrocious now. Genuinely you still want mock of a plot because they destroy an alternate timeline after giving. ALIEN TECHNOLOGY TO SCIENTISTS IN AREA ONE But. Before they go to have to save it anthromorph cat girl. It's gotTa do. As she becomes the best party member in the game. Her name is Miracle Man. With. So prayer. I got a bad name for you. So. Bad Guy. That's a pretty happy guilty. That's not a good crappy the so bad guy. He's the sole bag I in the fridge Oh sold back the registrar, the music itself. It's already pretty Rockin by Vice Vk Tari Amazing. Even tons of arranged tracks, arranged versions of these original songs by DICE Acacia Atari that are incredible So I'm years later guilty gear. X Axis released. And, four, the song keep yourself alive which is the theme of soul. Bad Guy just despondent say he's the only guy in the game. The Soul Bagai so He a rangers from Japan, go to WHO?

Math Furnace Fresno is a magazine I don't recognize is I'm not like a rock and roll guy, but I know it's not like crazy like. I saw shows eternity when I first saw vocal version I thought it was gonna be like like when the anime voice artists like do you like vocal versions of the songs? It's like some guys screaming Mike. Or like turn from Blue Dragon. Yes. Exactly. where it's like it sounds like someone is like drunk in a Karaoke bar. But this is pretty legit. I think I think you'll be into it.

Wow saugus about one man's quest to go to applebees despite the discourse. From his friends as a lot of him wanting to go there.

Quit and areas and wall Weinhardt is kind. kind of silly at Renault. l'artillerie heartily Liliya. Am I go to fancy was originally going to be but but Which I I'm trying to remember for the life I can't recall if. It was translated in America to buts or vice versa by want to say Japan, it was originally, but they get translated parts of injury. But you can't well, but you can't beat butts and I'm good for that. So down and you know what they're. They're cowards for not leaving butts in their game. That's right more butts in your games. Not less more more put your whole blood and. Also. One thing I wanted to randomly mentioned 'cause it's funny how came up in a rhythm and pixels check apparently we were on a chat talking about beers a few weeks ago and I think. Skinny Matt had a beard. He was drinking I made a kind of us. Really cool sound and beer and he pm. Mail. Won T if you want give let me know where to send it. What now the thing is like I probably wouldn't have been like, oh. Yeah. Here's my address because I'm you bizarre but no, you are normal person who won't just give your address online touche, which is good. But like I would have responded to suitor. But I didn't notice it literally until I got on that conference call yesterday like wait a minute have a PM in here because I. Check this core but the PM's don't stand out for some reason I always miss them at blended with the channels I'm not a big discord, beezer. I'm terrible with I'm trying to get better at it though but yeah, I've never been the best like even now getting coached in the usage of Instagram, which might every time I'm like what's the point of Instagram? It's just it's just pictures it's like the Tumbler of facebook I want people to talk about the pictures. But every time I go to see there's a photo like a bunch of like quick blurb as this person saw. Oo Look I saw Fisher Anyway. I'm older as. INSTAGRAM. So he slid into your PM's your Tylenol PM's, and then I didn't notice but just let me know I appreciate the offer very much. We should probably get like a Po box. Maybe yeah I mean.

Get creative was just fun to talk about like few submission so far that I liked but you get a man yeah. Well, we'll discuss it on the next Patriot show after the next one. So Thanks everybody for. We'll talk to you next week. have. been. The man with I do and. I totally missed it. dropped. The Ball Mercy I'm dropping on dropping balls man. Dropping. Remember. Nickel. Top for now. But also in the. VERSI. It's hard. It's frigging hard. Just I'm just going to be like that guy who says. We're dealing with some stuff like now. Is World's Gone Kula bonds on a on a crispy cracker and. It may be easy to get down on things down on society in down all variety of things I am poster boy for that at times. But despite the down this you may feel. Also, know that you are also dealing with individuals whenever you interact with people in the streets whoever you interact with people align. Don't let the plague that is the image has been built up of society. Negatively, impact your. Distract your distinct interactions with individuals whether online or in person you want to be. A version of person that frankly doesn't suck. Be a person that doesn't suck in the world that has had been having a lot of issues affording that constantly. Be a good person. Be The part that makes this place. Okay. Because Co my God it's crazy. Yeah. It's. It's so easy to be a good person. It's so easy to. Think about it actually is like I. Decide and remember dialogue. But like I have had dialogue with people and there's that moral concept where you say, you know I genuinely feel like. I think it's hilarious. Yeah I feel like. Without the actual influence of. As the natural human state it is easier to do bad things and be a bad person and I say that because. The core of being a bad person is literally looking out for number one without concern for the consequences of those around. But. By the same notion when you do develop attachment bonds and associations with other people and you have those relationships in those learned experiences, you develop things like empathy develop things like concern for others around you, and you also come to realize certain things like I don't know when you do something nice for somebody. You see them react to it. If feels good for you. Yeah. It's like a reward. Say I did this. Nice. I performed as nice gesture in the reward was seeing them enjoy the nice gesture is not selfish Israel near so If you feel like your hands are tied and you can't you can't help with the current problems that are happening right now. Do something nice for somebody else exactly go online and doom post all the horrible stuff because I already know it's out there is you can't really get away from it real. Yeah. It's fine I don't have to see it again. So just do your best be that good person because trust me it does feel really good to be good especially in a time where people could use it more. You're being that guy or Gal. It shows and people appreciate. So put your best foot forward. The movies zero.

Absurd Hypotheticals

51:45 min | 1 year ago

Episode 46: What if the speed of light was 30 mph?

"In what if it rained? If I was a new, what if we had nine lives fits fly? It's absurd. If money through on trees, if he did. Nappi balked back. Absurd. I bet go. Hillary buddy in welcome to absurd hypotheticals the shore. We over think dumb questions so you don't have to. I'm your host markets Lehner. I'm joined here today by Chrissy, and Ben storms say, hi guys. Hey, I'm Chris. Hey, I'm Ben. And I actually I saw a really great story recently had a share. So do you guys know how they safety tach will coasters? I don't know. So basically, you know, they test run it. But they wanna make sure that they have a human analog in the car when they do it because at affect the weight and everything so to do that. They had these special Test, Dummies. They use are basically, they're basically they look like a torso with, like shoulder nubs, and like a neck and then like legs to go out to maybe like the mid thigh. Okay. And they fill them with water. And in that way to tour of the same way, and like form rigidity of like a human. So there was a theme park in. In ocean City, New Jersey that was testing your kosher recently, and they didn't realize that there was actually a leak in the dummies so they filled them up put a lot fire on and send it off. And what happened was as it was going the water office. He's coming out through through the league and then as that was happening, they lost weight, and rigidity because there was water in them, and they slipped out from the lap bar, and lot of the hotel next door. Awesome water balloon catapault I guess. Yeah. And also the best the best part about this. Is that the VP of this, this theme park had obviously, there's a PR meltdown because, like, yeah, the roller coaster testing flunk someone into the hotel. Right. But led to this incredible quote, which was hit while he's trying to explain that. It wouldn't be an issue with actual people. He said, and I quote, you know, you don't lose rigidity and a person, which is accurate. But. Why don't they just use like normal crashes, dummies? I would guess just because it's Semper like move like to get them. These are there like like heavy and well that's the point. They're supposed to be the same weight as a person. They might be expensive one. I think they're expensive and to feel like they're a lot harder like maneuver around. I don't know. Also do they do? Just one touched crash test dummy, or do they do like a full horror of that? Imagine imagine car. Yeah. I think they said, yeah. A pair here slept out at went through the roof of the hotel, r coast only flown to people out. So you're fine. Yeah. So apparent in your favor. And so this one apparently, apparently, there is a a two hour daily tests. They do which I guess they just haven't run like continuously with them on it. And we just throughout that process that eventually slipped out. I do always have the paranoia every time I go on a roller coaster. Well now you know how they test it. So as long as you don't lose Jada, you should be fine. Just the flex all my muscles, right? Yeah. This is definitely a good setup to like a like Chucky. Tight movie where there's like this warehouse, where there's, like, along the walls are just like forty identical water dummies lined up their entire existence is like getting pulled out and stuck on a roller coaster than like put back, our God. Right. And on the bright side, as I mentioned, the don't have full arms and legs. So they're probably to threatening that you're gonna say the movie is going to be a haunted rollercoaster. No, no, no. It just it just feels here. Rigidity. Feels your jibbidy sounds like something. Stephen King, do it does sound good. Do actually the plot that these, these ghostly dummies like are able to put leaks in themselves. And the way they tacked park getting flunked out of roller coasters and landing on people. That's also pretty incredible actually all right. Onto more serious topics 'cause thousand nights reprieve because this one's gonna make my brain hurt and has to make my brain hurt for the last week. And that was our question today. Which is what if the speed of light was thirty miles an hour. This one is a little crazy intense. An intense question. Yeah. So I think the place to start off is relatively so when you start going very, very fast and start to approach the speed of light weird stuff starts to happen. Physics starts not breaking down, but not being super friendly to how we imagine it anymore. Yes. Not super happy about it. So the first question I had was, what would just day to day life be like, if you're going the speed of light, it's thirty miles an hour, and we're hitting these relativistic effects all the time, because thirty miles an hour is has not that fast car is also like not that fast for like angular momentum. If you swing your arm around, it's going faster than thirty how do we blink think about that? So anyhow, what does it actually starts to happen? So when I was researching this show this one to me, but there's a great, I'm gonna call it a paper or a kids kind of. Yeah. Kids book, I think that was the purpose of it when it was published. I'm not called a publication seem safe that's called, Mr. Tompkins in wonderland. So the plot of it is, there's guy, Mr. Tompkins, who was a banker and he seeks enlightenment in physics. No particular reason why he's doing that. He just is he's just like there's a picture of him reading a newspaper and it just captured at Mr. Tompkins banker seeks enlightenment in physics. So he decides ten lectures at university he doesn't like his job as a banker anymore. So what happens is he's he goes to a couple classes, and then while he's at the Bank job, he's trying to figure out what the fuck is professor was talking about, and he wakes up a dreamland where the speed of light is ten kilometers, an hour instead of three hundred thousand which is the actual three thousand dollars per second, which is the actual speed of light. And this is actually, as dumb and stupid at the story was it's actually gives you a good tool for comprehension. I mean it was it was written by, like an actual physicist. So he knows what he's talking about. Yeah. This is like a learning like the idea of if the speed of you'll start seeing the relatives effects in the context that we can understand and relate to. So what down to is, basically as you get closer to the speed of light instead of you. And you start, you know, you put more energy and try to chart going. Try and go faster instead of actually going faster the space around you starts getting shorter. So the example uses he's watching this guy ride his bike down the road. And he's like, man. This guy has gone super slow on his bike, and as he goes and gets his own bike and tries to catch up to the first guy. He's like, mass really hard to get up to speed like he's not going much faster but I can't really catch up. And eventually he does. And as he does what happens is that the road, the, the streets actually writing down or getting shorter and shorter and shorter. Even though he's not actually picking up anymore speed. So he kept the. Go to the Bank. And so this, this trip takes about five minutes and with three it's kind of weird. Is that he's like all the conversations in this written by physicist is, I think the plight way to put it where he just like, I'm not I'm not gonna find it redeveloped, but he like just like even going very slow. And he's like fuck you offended his little bike rider, so fast bikes go. Yeah. He used like dropped into this world. Everyone else in the world. It's like normal to them. He had just normal for them. But every single conversation that's planted in this book is not even a good version of like after school special. So, yeah, so basically instead of as you cross the speed of light instead of things going instead of you going faster anymore. The things around you get shorter. Is is the end thing. But there's one interesting extra bit on this, that makes things more complicated in that is that he took five minutes to get from where he is to the Bank. So that's what his watch showed but the banks clock. An hour. Had passed. So it took him five minutes. But if he had gotten a call from guy at the Bank, and the guy at the Bank was like, hey, meet me in five minutes. He'll be like, okay I got here. But the guy the Bank be like a, you're fifty five minutes late so different amount of time pass for somebody standing at the Bank compared to the person going very quickly. So put us if you travel from New York to Boston is like a four hour trip. So if you can do it for you in four hours. But when you get to New York, it's going to be like, eight hours or whatever our many hours later. The math gets a bit tricky there. That's why the biker looked super slow to him when he was just standing watching him go by. Right. Right. Exactly. So the biker is only moving like thirty miles an hour, but he's not. Bring up all the way to make that sentence. Come out not confusing. So I just band. It's a frame of frames of reference thing. So you're describing his time dilation, which is like the warping of time, based on how fast you're going or like if you're traveling and maybe I can sort of explain why or how they discovered this theory. I guess, so it was it was proven that the speed of light is constant. It's like universal constant and that's where we're basing this question on his see the speed of light c his thirty miles an hour. So imagine someone standing still and a flashlight. And he turns the flashlight on and the light goes from the flashlight to a wall. Now if we look at the light at its smallest parts. So the smallest part of light is a photon and photon travels at the speed of light, which is constant are case study miles an hour. So if he turns it on the photon goes from the flashlight to the wall thirty miles an hour and it goes a certain distance between there. Now, if you matching the same person. On a train and he's moving sideways on the train. But in the train, he's standing, still, and he turns on the flashlight the same thing happen. The photon will go from the flashlight to the wall and to him. It'll be the same distance as a person standing off the train between the flashlight in the wall, but relative to the person standing still that photon is moving diagonally because it's because of a nurse show. It's moving with the train, so it's actually moving at a diagonal line. And it's the distance is not the same, because it's a hypothesis of a triangle. So it's actually traveling farther distance than the person standing still. And normally you'd say, like, how's it possible for the photon to reach the wall at the same time for both situations? If the speed of light is the same, and it's not one of them would either have to be going faster and the other slower or time has to be different for both of them. And since we establish that, that light is the speed of light is constant time has to be different for both cases. And that's, that's sort of how they describe the idea of time dilation. Yeah. So the two main problems that I think are gonna come out of this is one the age of people relative to other Bikaner becomes a societal concern, where, if you travel a lot, you're actually progressing through time faster. So it means you're aging, slower to like an airplane pilot. Yes. When air airplane pilot like will leave and go somewhere and then, like, you'll go on the return, you'll come back on the return trip and his wife will be ten years older than him because she stayed in one place. Meanwhile he's going to be, you know, ten years younger. So it gets tricky, so busy, if you're going to once you start living community, you kind of have to stick with that community and not go travel, too often, or else, you're gonna lose that timeframe in that community if that makes any sense, so time kind of becomes location-based where if you go between places you can't like go back to the same place. It'll be different because of totally different amount time, we'll have passed. So I think that would make things complicated. And then the other bit is that I don't know if our brains could get used to accounting for relativistic effects. So, like, if someone tosses you'll ball, it's not gonna fly through the air nicely. You know, have an arc that you can follow the three the ball as going to be moving slowly, but also get skinnier and you're gonna move your arms toward it in your arms gonna get like shorter or longer as you try to catch it. It's gonna be confusing for things. I have like multiple moving parts in different directions. Yeah. It get the whole. I think the whole ability of our brain to comprehend how the world is going is going to fall apart. So really life is not going to be super lives, not going to work out great just for day to day effects, and our other problem is black holes, because once you start messing with physics. He always Galago black holes or doing so away black holes are often described is imagine the universe as like a sheet and everything in the universe is a marble of the size correspond to its mass on that sheet. So black holes work in that black holes are very, very big ball. And a very, very tiny point on the sheet, and they pulled the sheet down. And when things go by that when other marbles role by that area, they'll start that, that curve will them they'll bend if they're going to slow the caught in the indent that that ball is making. And that's what it is, when things get sucked into a black hole. Is that they cannot escape up the sides of the indent, and they get trapped now nothing out of the us. So I've, I've modified, this analogy in saying that the speed of light is affectively the Tottenham of this sheet. So as the speed of light goes down down down in down the chic, it's loser loser loser. So what you're doing from black holes perspective is because the speed of light is the fastest anything can go and travel across the sheet, you're reducing, how fast things can go, but the other way can look at it is that the sheet is getting less tight. And so that the holes are getting deeper, deeper and deeper, another way to put it if that didn't make any sense, is equals MC squared. If you put the see much lower in that occasion, the seas much lower in relation to the mass, so it's going to act like something with a lot more mass. So the end result is the effective. Mass of things increases compared to the speed of light. So when you're looking, how black holes form they form at two point five solar masses, which is a cool unit because there's like this is this many sons big. I don't know how they pick that number. But. It's four point nine five times ten to the thirtieth kilograms engineer two point five, so sorry, once masses to is to time sent thirty kilograms a black hole form. The two point five solar masses. So five to ten times, senators kilograms, that is what you need to create that event where light can no longer escape at its speed of light speed. So when you do the math out, basically all object weights are five times ten to the fourteenth times, more effective at creating black holes. So instead of needing five times sent to thirtieth kilograms make a black hole. You only need ten nine times ten to the fifteenth kilograms to make a black hole. So way, way, way less mass creates a black hole and to put on perspective. The weight of the earth is five point nine seven times, ten to twenty four kilograms, which is a few million times more mass than you, actually need to make a black hole. So the earth. Definitely super going to be a black hole, all the other plans are going to be black holes all the black holes that are existing are going to be incredibly, incredibly bigger and basically all the marbles on this sheet are going to start funneling towards the center, pulling the whole sheet down. And I think the entire universe. Get sucked up into one singularity. So. Don't mess with the speed of light guys. Keep that shit as big as possible. Chris doing. So I looked at this question a little differently because I kind of Sumed that looking at special relativity would like kill everyone didn't wanna do that. So my interpretation of this is that see the value of C, which is the maximum speed of light in vacuum that doesn't change. But there's something like, in the air that slows down the light like through medium. So like as an example this occurs naturally in water. So water slows down the speed of light by like by forth, such three-quarters speed of light and then through a diamond. It's two fifths. The speed of light. Oh, interesting. So if there's like some sort of, I don't know what the property would be. But some sort of nebulous, medium slows down the light in our atmosphere, something like that. So trying to light the light from the light is gonna travel at thirty miles an hour, instead of whatever the actual in miles per hour, as it is right? But you don't. Get any like the relativity property. You don't get time dilation. You don't get black holes any of that stuff. Yeah. The universe doesn't break at the same time. This interpretation. Right. So some real life examples of this. There's something called Charon coughs radiation. And it happens at nuclear reactors, it's when electrons move faster than light through water because water as I said before late slows down in water and this causes aglow effect because the electrons moving faster than the light and get more into the glow effect later on. And then the second example I have is lean how, which is a Danish physicist in nineteen ninety nine she used the like a abodes, Einstein condensate, which is like a deftly series of words. It's like a state of matter, where dilute guests of Bozon's cooled to like almost absolute zero temperatures is able to slow down light. So she used that to slow down light to seventeen meters per second, which is, yeah, it's converted. Thirty eight miles per hour. So it's pretty close to thirty miles per hour. So someone so this is this is even hypothetical. Someone did this someone this I mean given a very, very small sample of light and actually in two thousand one she did get. She actually stopped like completely. She's a first person. The stop light completely what's, yeah. So that's my scenario. It's still just be like that was just to show that it's possible kind of. Possible adjacent. Yeah. So what is taking a look like for us on earth with this thirty miles per hour. Speed limit. I all there's no time dilation, and we can actually travel faster than light, which we couldn't do it in yours scenario, you can't travel faster than thirty miles per hour with special relativity bread. So first of all, if there's if an example, if there's someone standing far away from you for like, like fifty feet away from you and they wave there's gonna be a delay from when they wave when you see the wave so thirty miles an hour is actually forty four feet per second. So it'll be around a second after they wave. You'll actually see it. Now, what happens if that person starts walking towards you? So there's a bigger delay when they're far away, and then once they get closer, there's less of a delay. So they're gonna they're gonna end up like looking like they they're speeding up as they walked to our deal, like gradually, it's gonna look weird. And if they're walking away from you, it's going to be. Can look like they're slowing down even the there at a constant speed. Okay. I get. Yeah. So I think I get it. I have no worse too. But it is in my head. I don't know exactly how well I'm explaining that. It's it's because because you're still always reflecting light. So the light, okay. So as you're gonna modify your Jakko for it. This is my brain. This, this is literally how my brain got got it got it self to understand. Imagine a little marshmallow shooter. And every second is ask shoots. Marshmallow at you. If he is running towards you the first marshmallow shoots out, say it's going pretty slow. And then the next one he shoots is going to be closer that first marshmallows. They're gonna they're gonna bunch because running towards you while shooting marshmallows. But if he's running away from you shoots the first marshmallow backs up a bit shoots nother, marshmallows back. So the distance between where the marshmallows get launched off increase. So the rush knowledge are going to be further and further apart. Yeah. Kind of I dunno made perfect sense to me. Well, that's the Doppler effect. They describing which I think, is a little different the way, I like to think of it is, like so someone is say one hundred feet away from you, then they're gonna have to second delay from when they wave to when you see the wave if they're fifty feet away from you to delay reduces to one second. And then if they're right in front of you. There's no at all. So if they start a hundred feet away from you and they and they. They walk to you. And then they get to the point where the right in front of you. It goes from two second delay to no delay at all. And that to be some interpolations between the two points of delay. So in order for it to go from two seconds of delay to no delay. It has to speed up to catch up to it. The tell my mind thinks about it. I don't know if that makes sense to other people make sense to me. And then if you look at a like a train, which is like, obviously longer than a person there's going to be in a long Gatien effect. So it happens on a person to was easier to visualize with the train. So, like if the train is moving less than thirty miles per hour. So less than the speed of light. Then the parts of the train that are closer to you will look more normal in the parts that are like far away, the look along gated because say, if you're looking at the spot of the training one hundred feet away from you at that spot. You're. Seeing the part of the train that was there two seconds ago. Right. I don't know that makes so if you imagine, like a ninety foot train, and there is the TV screen that is one hundred feet away from you, and there's another TV screen, that's like right next to you. And those TV screens represent like the planes that the train is passing through. So the screen next to you has no delays. So it's showing where the train is exactly at that moment. But the train that's a hundred feet away from you has a two second delay so showing whatever is in that spot, two seconds earlier. So when the end of the train passes, that far screen, it's showing that the train is still there, even though it's not because it's showing when the trainers are two seconds ago. Now, if you imagine that, there are an infinite amount of screens in between that last screen and the first screen, that's basically, what you're. Looking at. So that last green shows IRS train the front screen also shows that there's a train there's one hundred feet between them. The train is only ninety feet, but you're seeing one hundred feet of train. So the train is it looks bigger than it, actually is. And that's that's going to happen with everything you see, basically. And then when the train is going away from you. It's. Yup. Set. So even though the train has passed the far screen the screen is showing what, what was there before two seconds before, which is this the train wasn't there yet. So even though the train had passed, you're not seeing the train, which say the train looks shorter than actually is. And then one of the things that didn't happen, Marcus situation was that we can move faster than the speed of light, which brings me back to that Charon, Cavs radiation. That's the tour the glow comes from. So what happens is, it's sorta similar to the sonic boom, what happens with the sonic, boom and sound so like with a sonic. Boom, it's omitting sound. But the object is moving faster than it's than the sound that it's a meeting like the sound builds up pressure in the front, and then it release it alleged amidst, a sonic boom, which is just like a really big noise. So this, like, the light equivalent of this will happen for something traveling faster than the speed of light. It won't be a sound that you hear it'll it'll you'll see like a like a flash to Soufli of light. So like if someone throws a baseball at you or if they're like pitching a baseball to you in. You're trying to bat while you're going to see is them wind up. You're gonna see half of their wind up and then probably halfway through their wind up because they're on a delay. You're gonna see a flash. And the ball will have already passed you by the time you see that flash. You're not going to actually see the ball at all. Bisbo is gonna be a lot harder much harder. It's gonna have to guess with the timing fielding will be next to. Possible. Yeah. Actually, at least at least the batter does is going to be somewhere with it like this, like two foot box. But the fielders like Sharrow man and no idea where the ball is right now. And this is actually probably going to be a problem with cars because most cars drive faster than thirty miles. An hour when I was initially, I figure that we would that how their speed limiters on cars, every car would have to have a speed limiter because I was gonna I was going to say that they're just be a universal legal limit like physically we can go above thirty miles per hour. But we're gonna stop that we're gonna make a law that says you can't. Yeah. Or else? There's just gonna be flashes all over the place on the street and it's gonna be very dangerous, and then thinking about sound because the helped me visualize. It, it got me thinking about the Doppler effect and headache with sound if something's coming closer to you than tire pitch. And it's gone away. It's lower pitch as one of the same thing happened with light with color so late, if something's coming at you would it like change, color, and actually does already happen. To some extent. They call it blue shift in Redshift. So like if something that's moving towards you. It's blue shift in. It's like very slightly more blue as moving away from me, as lightly a little more red. But it's like very, very negligible. So you can't you don't know sit at all. So my question was if light is thirty miles per hour is this affect amplified and the enters. No, because color is not due to the speed of light to, to the, the wavelength of the light. Oh, jen. But it got me looking more into the wavelength than like what causes wavelengths in light. So I did sort of a deep dive into light and like, what it actually is. I don't know how long it'd be like explain this. But try to light is part of the electromagnetic spectrum, which includes like, radio waves, microwaves, xrays stuff like that, and the strength of the wave is so radio waves are lower energy, so they're weaker. And their wavelength is around, like one millimeter to it goes all the way up to lake ten thousand kilometers, and then x rays and gamma rays are higher energy on the spectrum. And, and they range anywhere from one nanometer to one PICO meter which was like, really really really small. And xrays gamma rays, actually dangerous demons like X, if you're exposed for a lot, that's what make you whether the, the big old vest when he next Ray. Yeah. It's why turn to the hulk of scammers. Right. Don't actually do that. Don't do that hope for different power grow. Get the gamma rays of hope for a different power. Eight. Yeah. Besides just big angry and visible light is Salt Lake somewhere in the middle of the spectrum. It's like around one micrometer for the wavelength. So what causes these waves and like the actual wavelength so it causes these ways is electron in an atom, either loses or absorbs energy, which causes the electron to move and the movement of the. Electron crea. It's an oscillating magnetic field and perpendicular oscillating electric field. It's kinda hard to visualize. But when I was researching this, I had very helpful video visualizing it for me. Thing we're video media. And these two perpendicular waves form in electromagnetic magnetic wave which is made up photons and the rate of the oscillation is not related. It's not related to the speed of light. It's more related to like the amount of energy that the atom loses or absorbs and that's not going to change. So we, we only change the speed of light. We didn't change the energy, which means that the number of oscillated over time is gonna be the same. So like the wave is going to be moving back and forth over time the same speed, but the speed of the light traveling is lot slower, which means that the wavelength is gonna go way way way down. So I looked at what the new wave lengths are and radio ways. The their wavelength is gonna jump into like the spectrum of lake visible light and then visible I is going to jump into spectrum of gamma rays and like pass. Gamma rays. That's not good. Yes. I was like, what does this mean did I accidentally kill everyone? When I was trying not to the answer is no. Yeah. But everyone is the hulk. The wavelength isn't actually that important in terms of like the strength of the wave or like the energy of the wave. It's more. The frequency is more important. And usually when you're talking about WAVE's frequency and wavelength. They kinda like you'll hand in hand because you change one the other changes. But in our case we changed the speed of the wave as well. So and we changed it proportionally to the amount of to the amount we change the wavelength. So the frequency actually stays the same for all light, regardless of a slowing down the speed to Gotcha. So that means that visible, eight stays visible light radio stay radios, and we don't all die. So, yeah, the outcome, I guess of all this just be there's delay. There is a speed of affect slowdown effect. When someone's moving at you. There's a lot along Gatien effect. There are faster than light booms with flashes of light, and the universal legal limit is legal speed limits, probably gonna be thirty miles per hour, as how our world would change if you're going more than thirty miles an hour is everything now invisible. No, no. Because that's the wavelength thing. So everything behind you. Is. Yeah. Everything behind us an invisible and everything in front of you is going twice the speed or going, very, very quickly. 'cause you're gonna see the visuals can be pretty complicated. I think. No, no. I think markets, so. All right. So, so say you say you were in like like a rocket powered sled. And you're facing backwards at launches forwards at faster than thirty miles per hour. The light from the things behind you will not reach you while you're moving. He's right. Yeah. You'll be running into the light of, of the things in Fernie fucking trippy. Yeah. I guess so. Yeah. I did not think about that possible. Rain hurts thinking about it, it would probably hurt seeing too. Yeah. Ben what, what do you do? So I saw the possibility for all these complicated topics. And I decided, you know what? I'm going to let these guys handle that. Gonna talk about animals a smart decision man, I really should've picked topic. I got the buck pass from Benton. Chris to me. That is exactly what happened. Real, though, I, I was thinking, along the same lines as Chris, where we're not going to go into relativity, because once again that makes my head hurt and I started thinking about the way that, that like animals and specifically, like predator prey interactions, and then evolution would be affected by this. Let's start with the example of the peregrine falcon peregrine falcon is bird, prey that hunts other birds, basically flaws above him somewhere from, like, three hundred or three thousand feet about them, and dived on them, like grabs them, and either just kills them with sheer impact force, or, or like while they're stunned from the impact just like, you know, hits them with his its beak and, and kills them have cruising speed around sixty miles per hour. But then, when they dive they can reach around two hundred forty miles per hour pretty fast which which means that. Yeah so, so with. This thirty mile per hour. Speed of light theoretically, the falcon was three thousand feet above its fray and already at max speed, it would reach the pray about eight and a half seconds. And the light from that point would reach it in about, sixty eight seconds which. Yeah, that's you know, decent. You might ask how fast they hit the top speed and actually still works, even if you take that into account, I found a paper from the journal experimental biology, where they figured out the acceleration of Alkan at ninety degrees. They can reach ninety five percent of their MAC, speed and sixteen seconds, while dropping about thirty seven hundred feet if it's a fifteen degree dive, they can reach ninety five percent of MAC speed and not thirty eight seconds over about a thousand feet of, of dive. So using that if you assume you're three thousand feet above at that fifty percent or fifteen degree dive when they're two thousand feet away. Thirty seconds end. They'll be going to hundred twenty miles per hour. That's the ninety five percent of their MAC speed. They closed two thousand feet and just. Six seconds. So it still from the start of the dive about forty four seconds versus you know, sixty eight seconds for the light to reach. So in theory could actually hit their prey before the even saw them dive. But there's a couple of shoes here that you may have already picked up on. Yeah. Bet if you're stopping gonna jump in the one, the one that's more important and more flippable Thakin, specifically is that which two thousand feet away. It is seen where it's prey was sixty eight seconds ago that's going to be, which is going to be hard to account or so this was more example, just show how stupid it could be because yes, obviously, this would not work. But more generally the other issue involved with, with this idea is that the birth preying on like they usually pre on, like small whispers, like quails and stuff. And they're cruising. Speeds are twenty to thirty miles per hour, and they can burst up to another, you know, ten or so, so thirty five to forty you know. And what's going to happen? Even assuming they knew exactly where their prey was. They were doing this. I've assuming let's, let's say, you know, entirely hypothetically, which, you know, hey, that's what we do. Here we've been doing so. Some hypothetical within hypothetical even if the falcon could still see light at regular speed. And it's freight only, you know, we're assuming basically an invisible falcon situations. If the prey moved bursted at forty miles per hour, you know, right before the falcon reached it the falcon wouldn't be able to adjust for that. And this extends onto any other kind of like pursued predator situation. So looking at other, you know, prey animals Brown hairs can reach about forty eight miles per hour. Wildebeest Springbok, and Thomson's gazelles can all reach about fifty miles per hour. So once again, eat the same thing, where any predator that trying to, you know, any pursue predators trying, you know, run down, prey if that prey can change direction it makes it incredibly difficult for them to be caught. It makes it hard for the prey to because the prey doesn't know where the predator is either. I'm so. It depends with what was the falcon, where is so fast so much faster? It's, it's pretty much will be pronounced impossible, just because the speed is so much faster than speed of light that you can reach like before, you know long before, right? Well, something, like, for example, Ashida, everyone knows cheetahs. Are, you know, they run sixty miles per hour ever, but they actually have really bad acceleration. And they basically just like have a long run up to get to that speed and just run something down. So as long as you saw that Shida like a head of time, which frequently even you know, that's a relatively common thing just that they're fast now that can still grab something. You still be able to, you know, get up to speed and get away most of the time, so pursuit predators kind of have an issue, assuming they, you know, are shaping after something that is fast enough to hit that, that burst where they'll be above light speed. And this is actually pretty common because with those ones around hair and in the wildebeest and whatnot. Both of those speech. They're reaching are, basically the speeds of their predators. So the Brown hair, they're like main predator is the red FOX, which has a top speed of about forty miles per hour. Same thing with the Springbok wildebeest. That's the top Hawaiian. So evolution and this makes sense. If you wanna survive you need to be able to move as fast as the thing trying to kill you. So how Fred or is going to deal with this? There are some ways the biggest one is just don't hunt by sight. This is actually also prize common already. I don't even know why didn't think about that. Yeah. So some of the obvious ones bats are a pretty obvious one. They use location lions bad is not just an expression. It's, you know, relatively true so they hunt through sound, the platypus, actually hunch through electro reception. What's really? Journals like fucking stop so. Yes. So, so the platypus Bill is full of electoral receptors, and it can sense the electrical signals from its phrase nerves and hearts underwater. What sharks also do and apparently also like catfish. I think it's actually relatively common and fish because they are hunting, underwater generally so they can just sense, the electrical signals of whether hunting, basically how I never heard about this. I mean, I've heard of the sound thing I've never heard of the electric thing. Yeah, I know. I know right, spiders, the way spider. Senses prey on its web, is because it has because of all the hairs legs, they're just hypersensitive touch, and it can actually tell where on the web, like something is, is, is, you know, that was to any is one too many. I think so. But conceivably you could be similarly sensitive and hunt with outside. Even without a web, then also there's ambush predators. So trapdoor spiders, make borough. And this wait for prey to move by and snag it, there's the alligator snapping turtle, which is this large turtle that lives in, in, like lakes, and it has a worm shaped appendage on the tip of its tongue that uses to learn fish obey speeches lies in the water of its mouth open and regulates tongue like a worm and lies about its worming, tasty goodness. Exactly. And then win the fish comes through snaps Josh shut, and there's like, like a camouflage. So as very example, actually kind of a couple of things. So chameleons obviously have camouflage. That's you know, pretty well known. But also, they actually the way they, you know, get the bugs they're hunting is they have an incredibly fast hung that is darts out to grab it from being hidden, basically. So I think those would would, you know either. Other senses or ambush become much more prevalent predators Reggie's. And then Finally, I think you're scavenging will be a lot more popular because a lot harder to move fast when you're dead, I found. Generally Wikipedia say right? It's pretty, pretty safe rule of thumb. But then interestingly, I was thinking about that one, actually, if scavenging becomes more effective that kind of feeds into the ambush predator things, well, because then a very effective strategy is just wait for something to die. And then if you don't, you know, wanna scavenge wait by that for something to come skybridge, so, you know, lifelines away, as a noted philosopher once said, if lots of lots of for Jeff Goldblum force. But yeah, so I think that's kind of most of what I have I think that generally, pursuit predators will become a lot less common aside from the one. Interesting thing is that with smaller animals as much, there's much less of an impact because using a mouse and example, because it's so small, there's just no way it physically can reach the speeds, it would need the kind of the big loser in the situation of because in theory larger predators could be fast enough that they get an advantage and it has no way to grant gaining advantage. So I think the one, the one thing I want to get out of this is what is the visual if I'm standing on savannah and cheetah decides to starts running at me. So is the light sonic boom. So I see it like start to approach, and then I get attacked. I think you'll see cheetah like house at work, you there's definitely going to be the cheaters goes. I think that she goes exceedingly fast because I can only. Thirty miles an hour. Yeah. So, basically, if the cheetah takes fifteen safety, stay the cheetah takes. It's going to almost like stretch into existence and it's gonna be a light boom. And they're gonna be hit by sheet. Yeah. If they start I guess they have to excel rate but once they're past thirty miles an hour. I don't you're not even gonna see light bloom because I'll just be passing by. I actually with that image, the falcons, the more fun one, because it is just going to be like a flashlight and this guy that you don't see because you've already been attacked by UCLA. From the ground or something like this is gonna be like a cau-, and then just like a Brown line and then a like an explosion of light and then explosion of bird. This'll be such a cool fucking movie. Like the visual effects would be so right. So, yes, I have. All right. That's awesome. I think I think we almost explain some of the things it was close one thing correctly, maybe. And so that brings us to our would you rather question of the day, which is would you rather be able see ten minutes into the future for yourself or ten minutes into anybody else's future? So this is like at your control. You can do it whenever you want. Right. That's why I figure, I assume so or massive headache rife. I did I was reading a the discworld novels which are like a satire fancy book. And I realized that one character who was like a what they call that oracle a seer a clairvoyant that's the one. And so her whole, like stick was that she would have conversations with people, but you forget to turn her clairvoyance off. So she would say the answer to the question. Oh, yeah. And then she'll get mad when people didn't ask it, because it gives her a headache. Yeah. You'd be creating paradoxes all the time. Right. Oh, yeah. Yes. And she's like she's like you have to you have to ask them. So it's up to them to figure out what question they were supposed to ask base. Answer it. So I like that character in the book, but that doesn't answer. Would you rather? Would I would I rather see ten minutes into my own future or anybody else's? I think it's got be mine, I've actually really torn on this one to thing is if it's anyone else's send you can just do someone that around you Chalan years, too. So it depends on what you care about. Because for things like like, you know, personal safety anyone else around, you just as good as yourself really assuming that there's someone around you obviously, but that doesn't that there are still things that seemed to mention a future of you really helpful for that aren't related things like that. So I don't know. So question is, if you can see your own future. It's set in stone. Oh, yeah. That's a very important question. Let's you, can you can see I think if you can change it. I think it's much better for yourself. Because for example, my commute to work is slightly less than ten minutes. So I can theoretically be like. I'll see what my boss is getting in. A minute before. So I can just check a bunch in the morning to see when I have to go to work. I get the real late. Nobody will know example. I was thinking of if you're on like the prices, right or something or some game show. You just look into the future and see the answer. And then when like a ton of money if you can change it, that would be very helpful if you if you can't change it. I don't think I wanna look ten minutes of the few. No. Yeah. Bad. That's just ten minutes of added stress. Yeah. Not you don't even wanna see other people's ten minute future. No because I only care about them, and how it relates to me. And so then it's basically the same thing. But then you could actually be like a fortune teller and make a living. It does at least give you yet. We'll okay, you're a very limited fortune teller to be fair ten minutes. You'd be very good magician. You could do that psychic thing, the psychic mind reading where you're like all right. Give me your whatever. And then, like, have them pick a card. Yeah. Haven't been a card, or all the other nonsense. But thing is if you can't change it. What does that mean? Oh, right. 'cause you can't what if you see in the future that you see the wrong card or they pick the wrong card. Get real disappointed and they kick you in the nuts. Then you have ten minutes of getting kicking nothing do magic trick. Okay. So you have to be able to change Rosa's question. Exactly. Don't want. We we've, we've come because we don't. So he can change it. So I think it's myself because I'm selfish but I think if I was apparent it would probably be like the kids, it be here. Here's the thing, though. Marcus using your example, couldn't you just look ten minutes into your boss's future. I could. But, like assuming I have a thing in my life where I don't do it with somebody else. I mean how many how many things do you do alone though, that are like important some something along? Thank you, very important things. I'm trying to think so. Okay. So here's here's what I was thinking. So here's my, my thought right now trying to figure out if there's a way that you could be like a, you know, a day trader because I think that generally other people is going to be more useful. But specifically in situations, they're lingerie where yourself is way more useful and trying to figure out if you can gain the system. What if hear me out on this one he wanted to be a day traitor using you could see other people's futures? You hired someone to watch news. News about stocks and just allow exclaim things about them and you just look into their future. That's their job. And then you can you not see the TV screen and their future. Do they have to shout that works watching? I think it's funny or funnier if Sean. But. That's a good point. Okay. Middleman. I, I think it's myself, I think, I'd rather have the ability to always use it on myself as needed. I think it's other people, I'm gonna say other people, I think that because you can get rich day trading and then just hire someone to walk out the all the time to look into their future and get the best of worlds. I just think it's other people because most of the time you're going to be around other that's also true, but I'm around myself all the time is my point. I don't wanna I don't wanna give up that ten percent of the temper set of meat. Meantime, his like sleeping eating going to the bathroom. You don't know. Sometimes there might be things that you need. You know, like if you're I don't know man, there's times, I actually, I had the same problem you do so many times, not being enough. I can't think of any of them because again think anymore after all this relatively talk. And now future looking talk, and I guess we talked about cheetahs for a bit too cheetahs falcons. Such, it's the final bits of the where I ask you guys, the listeners for money. So it would be hypothetical of you to hop onto our patriot and put on some donations to support us, the show that you love listening to, if you wanna be even hypothetic cooler for that you join us at the three dollar most here where you get access to voting rights on the show where you can vote on questions. We answer where the show goes moving forward and anything else that we can think to put in a poll to our patriotic members are hypothetic pals as we call them technically this different thing. We have a group called hypotheticals it. You don't have to pay us to be an gang just joined on Facebook, but I think all our fans the collective are, are hypothetical. But if you wanna be the hypothetic coolest, you can join us at our five dollars a month to your where you get access to exclusive monthly behind the scenes episodes where we go into our rejected questions what we really thought of each. Other questions after the fact, little behind scenes of making the show and it's more of a cool. It's a more relaxed hang out vibe than are typical episodes where there's, there's less of a schedule in research to head of time. But we get to hang out a little bit more with you are fans. So our first behind is actually able for everybody, but going forward, they will be exclusive to our patriot members. And whether you join our patriot or not, you can join us next week where we answer the following question, which snack mascot would win in a fight.

Right case for once this is the right. To make so yeah, it's odd. It's like just like being like the hottest beach direct sunlight, and it was like not wear sunscreen and you're like I'm just GonNa do this and it's not a statement. It's just quite literally the Bare Minimum Dinky. He myself safe inside him. How that's a statement. Right, but if you could catch. Their Sunburn like it was an aerosol in the air, you know. Right. The I think New Jersey. They actually like looking good sitting pretty in terms of their overall numbers, so we'll. In the next couple of weeks, but what the hell doing this thing on. An idiot Yeah, so. Blake! We're going to get to know you a little bit better in a moment first. We're GONNA. Tell our listeners a couple of things we were talking about. Like I said the Washington football teams story. May Have hit by now. If not, you know, there's a bombshell coming. We don't have any of the details confirmed by the Washington Post reporter, so we're not really gonNA. Talk about that just yet. Trump has demoted brad par scale. The Guy so many glowing, just super impressed profiles written of him. In the run up to the election just like this guy trump. Trump digital guru, he owns a computer. Yes, yes, and it's a compaq presario. Chuck woolery has a step down from twitter from tweeting. The administration's pandemic response is now lake officially. It seems like their policy. Is You know at all costs including killing people? We're GONNA. Talk about net flicks. They release them numbers for their top original movies. And some of those numbers are pretty mind blowing. We're also going to pick a Netflix top ten. rewatch movie. And checking with Ben Garrison the far-right. or Cartoonists what even? He's like racist graffiti or something like. I'm not I. Don't want to anger. The entire political cartoon establishment as powerful as they are all you, but yeah, they will draw but A lot of things that people are criticizing bank errors on about our true like when you look at political cartoons through history, they are very. Bad. The the they have like to represent a fat cat. They will have a fat cat, and then they will have. The fat cat labeled fat cat. Yeah, not so. But before we get to any of that, Blake, what's something from your search history? That's revealing about who you are where you are. Search history. I search recently Charleston River. Dogs Jersey on because they cancelled minor league baseball I. BELIEVE A couple or a couple of weeks ago I think officially and my parents live in Charleston where the river dogs play the it's a class, a affiliate of the Yankees and I was wondering like God. They've probably because they've laid off. Players like their minor league baseball players just won't make any money this year, so I was wondering. If there's a way I could support that team, which is like a thing I love to go to. Bill Murray And now the Minor League Baseball. Sorry, that was like twenty seconds too late, but as it gets worse and worse and. Our heroes we needed jacks medication. Zoom delays getting real bad sorry. Was the bill, Murray Aspect Bill. Murray Wasn't what? A part owner of the team, so it's this little minor. It was like a Little League stadium and then Bill. Murray's just sitting in the stands and he'll come out and do bits like because he lives in Charleston. South Carolina and it's great so much fun. Say you stop by either like as much as possible right like if you can, and there's a game you try and go go to that one of the last recordings that you it's a must. It's a must for you to see the the river dis. The River Dis as all the big fans call it. Yes, that's not right and. Proper Dogs That one sill we had to go to half a syllable. Exhausting. It's the only where a is longer to say than the actual word. But yeah. I love going. It's just going to a minor. League Baseball Games really really fun. Yeah what what is a rivard dog? Is that just a dog that lives by the river? Is that a name for like an? Of Fish an otter. Yeah, I think it's the conscious like a modifier that they just threw on there because they didn't want to. Just call them. The dogs you know like if Notre Dame just called them the Irish which actually? Do you know what never mind? It's not like that that you don't have to call them. The fighting Irish and I'm not sucking up to you right now. Jack I think it's. What they do over there. That entire culture is fighters. I. Think is wrong. The you know what it was. Charlie Weis canceled. City. River Dogs Origin Story so lame. I signed Charlie. Weis. Sorry, go ahead. The reason they called the. The owners had a lab named Taco or possibly Chas. I don't even know why this is disputed according to this article, but their neighbor dog are river dog so then. Yeah. Of Water Dog. Profuse urination Y Y River Dog. Did they live by river? No explanation. Just the neighbors call don't know. Looked like it was bathing and Brown. River Da. Always River. Fish. I tell you. Is that TACO or Chaz? Telling you melted. Dog's name is lucky. But it's in the river. I've never surgeon story. That sounded more like it was being told by a drunk person. Right Yeah and you never asked. Hey, they call it. River Dog, don't you? Don't ask him follow up question. We didn't want and it was the worst. Charleston river dogs Manley no as calm right because the gold clangs. The owners had a dog at Taco. We're in Wilmington Delaware and I. Don't know what you're talking. To Go do some tax free shopping now, but thank you for going to incorporate now if you'll excuse appear. Have to incorporate. I have anywhere Parisian. Shit. Blake, what is something you think is underrated. underrated. Let's see underrated, I'M GONNA go with Oil Free Suntan, Lotion. 'cause there's this little thing called adult acne that's been plaguing me. throughout my twenty s and now into my thirties, but I have switched to oil free Suntan Lotion, and there's nothing more comforting than knowing that you're protecting yourself, but not your. You'll still be attractive. The suntan lotion industry has made giant leaps and bounds. I had. You know prior to. Being married to a you know a a smart person. I don't only purchased Suntan lotion from like the equivalent of hotel gift shops like. Station yeah, gas station, yeah, gas station, Sunscreen, and yeah. It's like you're closer unusable for from that point forward because they all look like Greasy Napkins. Yeah they. They're making giant leaps forward you can, you can put on Sunscreen that actually makes you feel more handsome, more handsome. Yes, thank you. Yes, and this is a video call. Yeah, it is Noko brand. They actually just they take the ten thirty and they can actually turn that into sunscreen. It's great. It's true it's true. Yeah premium, and instead of doing SPF premium plus. And then regular, and then diesel I've been wearing when I was white as hell. I'd tonight smell awful. I smell like shit. They won't sell it to, but the the real good stuff is the leaded. You get landed. Yeah, talking. Yesterday if you WANNA get base down. based. My Wife told me. that. Ninety percent of aging is son related and that that actually make sense to me because the ever seen that video or that a photo of the truck driver, the driver, yeah. Oh. Net changed me. But it's it's a photograph of somebody who is like forty years older on the left side of their face on the side. Just from long haul, trucking and having the window down. Oh my God because i. Side from the driver's side window, just meant so much more UV rays on one side it's. Yeah. That's what they should bring. Fuck, dare you know I think most kids don't realize like how to do the basic shit like fucking self care like emotionally or like wear. SUNSCREEN ORLANDO CAR. You know how to do not differentiate a PCP high from a mushroom I. Kid I'm here because I was caught drunken on the drinking on the job and using racial learned during a rose bowl concert. Right PCP gives you superpowers, and here's what we'd smells like. So you know it's in the air when it's around, so you can ask around for those who? Dare whenever this comes up on our show. That's those are the two memories. Equals, superpowers and bats not we'd. Seen this guy, take twelve bullets and jump right up. Throw a dumpster through a Jack in the box. Truth and dare spars Fars Programs Go, Hey, do you? From your mouth to God's ear blew off. Head, yeah. Yes! Sorry what is what? I think you got it. what is something you think is overrated. overrated This could be controversial Spaghetti I think. Is overrated this fucking class. Outta here, it's strings. And doesn't like no one ever wants to say like. Hey, this would be so much better as strings, and unless with anything other than like maybe instruments or closed so like with Spaghetti. It doesn't hold the sauce well. It's messy. It's work and there are so many alternatives to it so i. don't understand what the all the fuss is about. What's your favorite pasta? It's a personal question, but I would have to say zd Z Z. Tubes. Like you don't like strings. You like big tubes. Fat flat smooth tubes. That's that that is it. Yes, I do I. Do Big Fat Smooth to what you? Just don't like the noodles now it's. In now either so I don't WanNa, see you eating Rahman either we'll nice. I actually Pineda Potato Nakae in Rome. It and eat it that way with A. Pieces. Key. In Tom in the Tonko Roth, it's really in right now. Mistakes, but it's delicious, yeah. I'm a few silly guy myself. Underrated you silly. Silly guys on zoom call right now. Semi. Chassis your head cons. man. It's silly. YOU CRAZY BASTARD! Yeah. I like anything original. I'm sorry I just get back to. US. Going yeah, you wanted to catch as much of that sauce. That's really the deal I. Right now it says here that ruffles have ridges. Have you guys? I have. We talked to that. was that. Yeah No, WE'RE GONNA. Put that in duck. We'll talk about that after the government's pandemic response. To The ruffles averages conspiracy. If you WANNA, do it after that that makes i. mean that's up to you. burying the lead. Finally what Smith what's something people figures true. You know to be false, so there is a myth that like during a forest fire. I was reading about this that. There is a story that a scuba diver was like accidentally scooped up out of the ocean by one of those fire helicopters. You know where they have those big things that they scoop water out to drop on the fire from beginning of Magnolia. Is, I don't get that reference, but I'm sure it was funny because I respect everything that no, no, this story is at the beginning of. They tell the story really really well. It's not true so. That didn't happen. However, that's not true Jack to see you know. Not. All movies are true I. Just don't understand. So however, while the scuba diver thing is a mess. The other day I was walking through a recently like fought forest fire area, and before I flew here and walking with my big strong legs, and I thought I had a mild cramp and I looked down wasn't a crash. Shark was biting my legs onto my big strong legs, so it turns out. They dry didn't feel because my legs are so big and strong, but it turns out I guess a fire helicopter dropped a Shar into Alex. yes, but I'm fine. Let's see the scars. How she is. Let's see those guys here we'll be. Time ripple. was that Mingo Mako. FEMUR yeah wow. Are So big. It pushed my bone. In the sharks head explosives yeah yeah. That's my quads and shattered my femur just with the director. Quite something else. Do you remember Jack and miles feel free to weigh in? There was a pitcher named Theresa. Turk Wendell and wait hold on hold on. Don't go, you're talking to. Jacket Go. Do you guys remember and the two of you because this isn't a bus monologue? It would be good to set ground rules. I, appreciate it I'm for. Not Okay, so no confusion does not bow now. Maybe I overstepped. Maybe it's not my place. But there was a pitcher named Turk Wendell who pitched for the mets and the phillies briefly, and he wore a necklace on that had shark's teeth on it, but also on the necklace. This is not a bit. He had his grandfather's molars like on the necklace, and this would pitch with that necklace on on national television. Isn't that crazy? Also his grandfather still alive. That would be so. Plant God. His brand skull was also this photo of his necklace. Is horrifying you would you say is true? It's a jagged boating at. It's crazy. It's like crazy and it wasn't really talked about. And then announcers would be like Oh and actually on his neck with. Teeth from his relatives. Anyway, that's ball to here the seventh inning, and what can we go back to the tooth necklace from the the dead the dead, Dad's dad? Yeah, wow, I mean you'd think people would talk. A little bit more about is well. Notable state when you have a wikipedia page that says notable statements as a sub like a subject area. Good Imagine. Always using pbs all you pitch during that era. Oh, he became the first pre. He became the first player to publicly accused Barry bonds of using steroids. How well maybe Turk Turk. Wendell is some kind of real Just made his name so fancy Turk- Turkey. Well Yeah I. Think I wanNA maybe respect it. I want to see some respect. or I thought for sure you'd be like this guy now runs some kind of bizarro business, but it seems like he has faded into. Maybe he sells dead people Steve and tap into jewelry. That's actually a big business. They sell teeth and you extract the gold. Little, known way that dentists and Morticians make a side. Look scratch I knew somebody who used to do that. Who is like a like a gopher like a lemming for? Picking up miles. You gotta bring that person back into your life. Like getaway no this. This person is so creative and you when you. If you ever met them, you'd be like this. This is not the kind of person whoever was going around like you know a smart trying to get gold scraps like this is breaking bad, but for interesting, tooth empire. Cuts so. Yeah, I. I would expect that to be the most creative person because that's such A. Just like it's outside, the my life is my is my work of art. A my job is teeth gopher.

Listen to Alex, Iona, let's get into it on the iheartradio APP, apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcast launching July seven. And we're back and sad news for Brad Pascale. Say Turk Linda. He said some some some pretty pretty. Ignorant Shit about Dominican people, so let's just keep that moving. The Mail. The tooth necklace had some interesting things to say. Baseball is very interesting because of how superstitious, because it's like such a you know knife's edge thing of performance like you're trying to create like you know these tiny edges like fit a thing. You're throwing one hundred miles per hour into like a tiny space, unlike just minor like mine advantage can like. Throw you off, so there's just so many interesting baseball superstitions such as wearing your grandfather's teeth on your neck. all right. Let's talk about Brad Par scall- or miles wedding. You tell me the fancy way to pronounce that. The when del Ization of Scott. Brad Scholar C C. He's He did a lot. He was the like the digital built the basically regional media, infrastructure and digital infrastructure for this campaign all the way back to two thousand sixteen. Heading up twenty twenty, he was out here, making all kinds of wild statements pumping up the president being like all man. Just you way bro go to Tulsa. fucking hundred thousand people is gonNA be crazy man. We're going to build a side stage. Cut To only six thousand racists were willing to die for the hive. Pulling up to this stadium, so I think the writing was on the wall for him around then because that was such a humiliation for the. And you could just see it. From the way he was just like his like anger during it to like the dejected walk off a marine. One when he got back to the White House, which honestly like straight into my veins, but yeah so now he is only as being demoted. He's still going to be the digital guy because. I feel like certain people when they get so close like. Can you really fire these people because they've seen things, they so show me manager now. The media, coordinator and true intrude trump fashion. Do this full found out like hours before it was made public and the like the way it's written politico, apparently like the Jovanka vodka side of the house was like shocked because they've known him for so long and Brad parts of very very sad and very upset by this news various. Yeah Brad. Tim there. There's a great picture on the front page of the drudge report where which is by the way we mentioned a lot, but that's because it's a single page. That is more popular than the new. York Times so we're worth paying attention to what people are actually looking at, but there's a great page at the top that. Under the headline like shock poll trump's approval at thirty six percent of him, just looking really sad and pigeon toed that I. That I really respected well. That's my new desktop background. Thank you so much. Passing that. That was the other thing, too that he was supposed to do is like supposedly get the you know. Light a fire under the country going into twenty twenty as we've said before, they are just losing on so many fronts simultaneously that they're just getting over loaded and yeah. On top of it, the president is objectively destroying the country and killing people, so there's not much you could do unless you have like a like a fuck in neuro, liser, the size of fucking Alaska to like beam the entire country with. The it'll be interesting to see because they're normal election cycle. This is the low point at which point the mainstream media will construct a comeback narrative because it's just too boring. Narrative lead to have somebody be. Nine points down for like three months, and then the election happens so well. Yeah, I mean. There's plenty like there's reports that you know. Israel's been still attacking a lot of Iranian military installations because they're like trying to get something in before trump is possibly ousted. Or the US to you know come to their back with military. There's I, think they're I mean goodness, the potential for so many things every so many things are like in the process of falling apart so yeah I can only imagine what you know. cataclysmic moment from the world events. The campaign uses to try and get some steam build. Yeah, that's what I'm kind of worried about like parcel was touting the enthusiasm gap is like the reason that they didn't need to be worried. because you know like in twenty-six teen trump voters would die to prove him right essentially as The virus. The average Biden voter is somewhere between like embarrassed and in denial that he's our candidate, but. They haven't disowned baby. Get in it. So the thing fivethirtyeight was pointing out that the Biden voters are actually. Enthusiastic about voting. Trump out of office. And when you look at like enthusiastic about boating against plus enthusiastic about voting for trump, has like a net negative of In the enthusiasm gap, basically right which I'm not I I think a lot of times when we say something positive about polling people like. Shut up about polling. It doesn't matter. That's what got us into trouble in two thousand sixteen. I just think it's important to know how bad things look for them. As a are starting to pivot and go away from the par- Scowl, who was the everything's good man? This is this is just a mainstream media. Lie to now like desperation. Our of things do look pretty bleak for them so. Like their their strategy is going to either be like fuck ARY. Like. Voting spots making mail in voting difficult or what? It is stream extraordinary, historically unprecedented level agree like suspending the election. Station. False flag attacks or starting a war colluding with foreign governments, even more openly. Than they are they are which is already pretty open. They're going to go from colluding to canoed alling. Does to be the term of this election, but I don't think it's smart to. Work I don't think it's necessary to hold this position that we have to just like completely. Ignore the like what polls are saying because they're not ignoring what polls are saying, right? His yet he was certain extent, but then you also know like I still. Don't I still think there are people who get? Called up by pollsters in lie, you know. Aren't gonNA. Admit that they're voting for trump I think at the end of the day. It's at the very least I'm like okay. It seems like we're still on the right track. Simply a majority of the country knows this all kinds of fucked up, so I think that's one thing I'll hold onto, but I think the danger right. Is that it? It takes away. It deflates people's enthusiasm because at things like Appro I. I can fucking sleep through the whole entire week. And trump will not be president and everyone has to vote. Everyone has to be as vigilant as possible because yeah. I think the only way they win is through absolute fuck ARY. Start Planning now. How you're GonNa you know phone back to you. Know just get. It's not just enough to vote. You need to like if you're in a swing state like you have to. Call into swing state. Yeah, that's what I'm going to say. If you aren't in a swing state, you can call it. You can phone bank for them, but like the you know if you're serious about this which I don't know how you wouldn't be at this point, you know there are things that you can do. You can start planning for like how you're going to. Help the. Vote. This guy out of office. Serve as motivation to were all right. If you think Oh, my vote, you know we're GONNA win. Who Cares? Run up the score on the guy like if you need some sort of motivation, how great would it be to see Donald Trump with all those electors? Blue Column, and then a small number a number where it's nine. Even he can't even say Shit. He can't even be like. Oh! This state was weird. That state was weird. Just make it so undeniable that. He'll look even more ridiculous than and yeah tries. You. Don't WANNA volunteer for the presidential candidate. There's plenty of local races and down ballot races that need just as much help because you know. The Senate is the Republicans. Play is going to try to starve to death between. Now, and then like they're really not allowing. It's very cynical. Part is like by not actually. Looking out for bills that are going to help stabilize households and things like that that it will create an air like an element of desperation that the administration will capitalize on to try and see you see what I see what's going on? This is why we need law and order. It's like no. You're systematic like you're antagonizing people in creating a situation that is untenable. It's all anyway it's. Must have our eyes open. Yeah, Let's talk about Chuck Wool Warri. Real, quick on now how you make that Fancy Chuck woolery. Charles Charles is the only one. Still sounds like shit. Taken to appropriately show, but yes, so on Monday. Chuck tweeted Chuck. The! Most outrageous lies are the ones about Cova. Nineteen everyone is lying the CDC Media Democrats are doctors, not all, but most that we are told to trust, I think it's all about the election and keeping the economy from coming back, which is about the election sick of it. pre. At least this was after trump tweeted or Re retweeted. Cool, so that's just openly spreading conspiracy. Democrats and Dr Boy. The CDC seem Then? Wednesday! He. tweeted. To further clarify, add perspective covid nineteen is real, and it is here. My son tested positive for the virus and I feel for of those suffering, and especially for those who have lost loved ones. And, then he promptly deleted his account So yeah, so why do these? Why do they do this to themselves I? Dont I mean like it's? It's so much easier to just trust a fucking doctor yet or don't say anything. But just at the very least just to get a lot of it is based out of fear. You know and. who better to calm your nerves about something like an illness than a doctor or science and say like yeah like list. This is what we're thinking. This is what it is. This is what it's going to be, but again because if you're worldviews completely formed by. This you know the pundits on TV saying that the economy is. must be restarted by throwing bodies on the on the pile, or whatever you're gonNA arrive at this, but you go from talking with your chest out like that to suddenly being like having to say like you know what it's real. I wish he would have apologized because that's really. What like the turn that I think? His own followers could have actually seemed like. Hey, if you follow me, please don't what? What I said was so off like it. This is so really. I couldn't have been more wrong. Unfortunately, I'm happy now. Dealing with a member of my family who has been diagnosed with it I'm hoping and praying that they come out rather than like just so you know it's real. Okay, and my son has it so and like shot out to the families of loved ones okay gotta go delete twitter. It's the demonization of intellect to is just so crazy where I do understand hating some condescending piece of shit, but that's condescension is different from intellect, so if you're threatened by the intelligence of a doctor. Don't just don't be except their help and let them help you. And that's my first point. In the second point I did some research and it turns out. Chuck woolery hosted the game show lingo from two thousand and two to two thousand seven, before being replaced by Bill Angle so if you're looking for an indication that your career is over, there's your sign. Wal. Here's your mind. DOT COM BILL DOT com slash tour. Remember where they were when the Challenger. Catastrophe happened I where I was when I first saw. The wears your sign monologue. It was so sweaty and uncomfortable unclear what he was doing. He was trying to create his own like you might be a redneck and it was just you might that there's. No so. Here's your sign. I think it was when I came on came online as like A. Perpetually human. Embarrassed a human being yeah. I really imagine that he was on that Redneck tore the blue collar comedy tour I think that's what it was, and yes one hundred percent and he was the lowest on the Totem Pole, and I need to find a way to jump one of these other sons of bitches on this thing. Maybe I can jump Ron white like it's. It's probably like Jeff Foxworthy. Larry the cable guy's the headliner. How can I jump Ron Wyden? It's like Oh. They serious he drove by a yield sign and he goes holy cooking shit. That's it. That's my sign. Here's your SOM-. fucking open still hosting tomorrow. I'm still doing five minutes up top. Okay! Okay, that's fine. The the premise is. He, he's saying that. Dumb stuff should wear a sign. That says they're an idiot. And then he goes through a big run through of dumb things, people do and says there's your sign right, but I think there's more to it than the. Advising I think we're missing convoluted right? Do wants to the. Many moving parts I. And I'm a you know it just makes me miss. COMMIES I can't see that we could pedia paid for this album and his way they. Way they even try and describe this academically. The title of this album refers to a routine framework commonly used envel- which began with his stating that stupid people should have to wear warning signs that simply state quote I'm stupid so that no one will rely on them or asked them anything he would then go on to tell several anecdotes in someone asks in obviously asinine question, and the question is then answered, sarcastically followed by the statement. Here's your sign. For example. Trucker gets his truck stuck under an overpass and the responding police ass. Hey, you. Get Your you get your truck stuck. The trucker says no Sir I was delivering that overpass and I ran out of gas. Here's your sign. I like to imagine that he can't even works does that I don't even know what. To. Think I think what happened. That June because he's asking A. Rhetorical that. Is Stuck, but he's saying I don delivering it. It's like what he said. Hey, you got a haircut I got my ears lowered. Here's your Sign Oh God it. This is one of my favorite moments. In podcast is trying to make sense I, know you have a good catch phrase when it requires two paragraphs on Wikipedia to set it up, his fans were like I like the cut of this guy's fucking. Gibb but I have no idea what the hell he's talking about. Let's wikipedia this. There's your sign up still doesn't make still can't make sense of it. He's a genius. British accent. I don't know what is fans are. Yeah I'm pretty sure British, okay? I mean this is a tough to pivot from fall to. The fact that the GOP seems to be trying to kill people I think it's perfect I. Think I mean translating Val. Kill involved kills every time he gets on stage, but The mask wearing also does to right, and so does the lack of mass wearing Georgia governor Brian Kemp is prohibiting local municipalities across the state from mandating the masks be worn in public. Just going against all. The CDC is like screaming at people to you know. Start Social Distancing handwashing mask wearing. If we just got behind that across the board, we could bring the pandemic under control of. Italy Two months, but that's not tomorrow. See that's. A little bit delayed by that not to say that like it's all over. We go back to normal that we can avoid doing now. Which is burning out our issues and a medical frontline workers who are like having going through an existential crisis from the amount of carnage. They're witnessing in these hospitals to do that, so everything can go back to like yes. Corona viruses still here, but we don't have to worry about like a an issue so bad that were you know having to give people half measures to keep them alive. That's that's where we're not even there. We're not even there. We're like we're in such a dangerous spot still and again, that's all. One, or two months to do that just to to just knuckle down, but we can't. Do that because it requires thinking of other people in inconveniencing ourselves. It's also believe. Georgia was the first state to open I. Think or try to open where this guy was like all right so I tried to open. Be the first do that. That hasn't killed everyone. It's killed a lot of people but I want to one hundred percent kill rate. How `bout I also ban masks like the guy is literally actively trying to take out all of his voter electric everyone in his state will that between that, and even like the school's reopening thorough many moves that the Republicans are just kind of like like Mike Pence in like a headline that is not from the onions basically ignored the CDC guidelines on. We're when we're reopening schools. What what we don't want is for the CDC to tell you whether you can or can't open. Schools was like you'll lewd quo. What is that? I, mean and I know. Some parents might. Feel comfortable doing that. I'd imagine most parents wouldn't. No matter what, but then we get into, this is all because they need everything to get moving. Because if schools are open, parents can have their schools there, and then they can go to work. It's all just so cynical and dark. It has zero zero acknowledgement for the amount of life that's been lost and the amount of pain that were just causing for no reason. They're also actively covering up. Information about like you know how hospital beds who's being treated for krona virus deaths a bunch of that data about hospitalizations disappeared from the CDC website. Even though we talked I think yesterday's episode about how? They were trying to transfer the information gathering from the CDC to health and Human Services and the CDC director. Like nope, no, that's not going to happen. It's all all under control here and then people noticed that a bunch of the data just disappeared off their site. So! Yeah, it's actively you know they're doing. They're doing active harm in order to. You know cover shut up. Meanwhile. Where are the Democrats? Like? Where are they? where? Where are the? Where are they just are they over five million people in counting are losing their healthcare because it was tied to their employment. And you know there was talk of funding Cobra, like through one of these bills, but it was attached to all this all this like larger legislative package that on its own would not have gotten through the Senate. But why? Why aren't there? Why isn't there more discussion on how to get more people access to healthcare, because a lot of people aren't even aware of like what the healthcare they can get if they don't if it's. Specifically to do with treatment of corona virus, but everything is so inconsistent in so confusing. And just so much, I don't know if that's just the difference. This cause a little more pain, and then they'll fully not wanNA. Vote for trump. If it's bad enough, and then we'll come to the rescue, but like don't don't play the empathy car too early because we don't want to blow Awad. It is, but this is. I'm looking for leadership there to to also at least be more vocal about how bad all these things are rather than me. Just reading like in the way, the media's covering to put some pressure on these Democrats, do because everything I read is like it's like the tone is sort of like man. The Republicans are fucking it up PAS. Race Okay what about okay? To, come out with a plan and don't and you know, get on the same page and keep beating the drum until people notice, healthcare is such A. It's like one of the easiest issues that appeals to the left and the right everyone who has health. Does heroes in terms are all about that does not appeal to health insurance companies though. They can go do. The leadership thing to it doesn't it doesn't have to be like a Winston Churchill type figure making these incredible speeches, just Oh, voice of reason or any voice, addressing the situation to and to your point, just don't fear the political fallout of Oh well, we don't want to peak with. We were holding on. Don't hold onto the coronavirus thing actually do something that can save lives and hold people accountable and the fact that like Anthony Foul cheap is probably the only person that anyone trust right now or an has heard anything logical. Come out of his mouth makes sense the guy's. Brilliant in his field, but a person who's a doctor for living who is has no, you know public speaking training. Has Nobody voting for him? He's not an elected official. The fact that he's the only person that we can rely on. There's just such a gap or Democrats could so easily step up and you know there would probably be positive political implications, too, but just for humanity sake it's. We'll put a bill out you would. Some of these Republicans on record, saying no I'm denying access to healthcare in the midst of a pandemic like they did put a bill outright. That was like trillions of dollars in that I like that. Early. But and that was that was to fund. Cobra is so expensive. You know what I mean like. You're paying everyone side of it. You just have access to that plan, but in you're you're not paying not only your side, but your employers side to now so the plan was to be like will pay for that. Let's just fund that, so people who've lost their insurance can at least keep their insurance through this, and it's so overpriced like you the insurance industry. Yeah, full like yeah. Pay Us these ridiculous. That's why a lot of the criticism about it was like dude. That is the biggest waste of money to pay for the Cobra premiums like there should be more clever way to do this while being efficient with the funds, and so that's why like I mean. I'm you know there's there's plenty going on behind the scenes? But between the media coverage and just a lack of real real things that give you hope or at least like yet okay? They need to do something. This were the politics of it gets really tiring in just makes you cynical. all right. Let's take a quick break and we'll be right back. Tuck about net flicks. Hi, I'm Devin. LEARY and I'm Carolina Barbecue and we're here to tell you to dump him. Break up with your boyfriend and we have somehow scammed the IHEART radio network into giving us our own podcast to talk about our love lives Entre Romance.

Now listen on the iheartradio APP, apple, podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. And we're back and. So. Netflix gave us a bit of a peek behind the curtain at the numbers on their top ten original. Movies the terms of views. I was the happiest I will. Detail this was that bright the will. Smith movie I, Max. Landis was not on in the camp. That big and he's such a bad person. Remember, neighbor like maxland right. Netflix was saying like dishes like doing like world box office figures. It had a big first weekend and right, and then it was just now that the movie with the weird. Beast in it. You know again the cover, yeah? That was like Joel Edgerton Yeah. The so. When you so extraction is number one. That's that Chris Hemsworth movie of from earlier this year. That's just like an action movie by the Russo Brothers. It is at ninety nine million views she. To put that in perspective like the when you look at like how many tickets were sold to the top box office movies of all time like this early in the run, basically the comparable like time into the release of the movie This is a head of the empire, strikes backs entire theatrical run, ben her Avatar avengers endgame drastic. Park Star Wars episode. Six extraction is a hell Oh my God. This is an interesting tidbit. Read in the trades on the heels of this is that. Much like jacket I know you're familiar with this because we have been decimated by the digital video. Now. Is that they count a quote. Unquote view on on net Netflix is if you watch it for two minutes. Two minutes counts as as like of you is what they clock interview? 'cause I remember what facebook was like. Hey, man, if this plan, you saw that Shit, even if it's Biden on muted, thank you very much. Five billion people saw your cooking video, but this is very i. mean two minutes I. Think is fair. Maybe like accidentally hitting start and when I go to the movie theater, if I don't like it after two minutes. This and I throw my popcorn and I I. Walk out and it happened. Thousands of dollars. Your, whistle you throw a football penalty flag up in the air. two-minute minute whistle. Nope, sorry gotta go I. Am sure like more likely to stop it Netflix's movie that. I am likely I've only left one movie in the middle. Of a theatrical which aren't. Godzilla. Godzilla with. Broader T broddrick. Yeah, Why come on I. Don't know the Anchor Madison Square Garden. Yeah Yeah. Ninety nine yeah. Nineteen. Because I'm like. I was like okay then. What does drunk at ninety nine hundred and I was like. But I remember one fact on the Taco Bell Promotional Game. You cannot get Z. piece if you spoke Godzilla out with all the things right looper up. Combo meal Disea- was like the fucking park place. Whatever Park places to McDonald's when the COVID IS EP's go. Diya sounds like A. A Menu, item on, Talk. From. Have that yeah. So, it's still I don't know I. Think that I've talked before about how movies like really impact? How like in my time at cracked like looking at when we had to like bust myths, I would just look at like what was in movies to get an idea of what people actually thought about like a country, or what spaces like or you know anything about science like movies really like right a lot of our. Imagination for us and like the you know our version like how the world exists in our mind, and like history like we. You know things that we don't really have access to that. We only read about in the book. The movies are the are the things that create the image that we generally have in in our minds, so I just think it's probably. I've probably been underrating like how powerful. Some of these movies that just strike me. You know like Spencer confidential. which is like the Mark Wahlberg movie with? Post Malone in it. His was has been viewed eighty five million times. That really seems like the sort of seems like many. Six underground the Michael Bay movie about starring Ryan Ronald. I think the thing. The this like Av club article was pointing. Do they? Think is interesting is that it shows that if there's just one big celebrity in it, that's what makes the difference like Roma's in there or like marriage story, so it's like to like artsy or heady rang. It's not gonNA. Find itself here like this is for the like. Like, The tax rate because I started watching extraction. Should like if I was fucking thirteen, and not going to school our prime minister should on a loop around my brain ended up becoming toxic mail, and then it would take years of therapy for me to come back around and save myself, but I you know it. kind of makes sense like these films that do well that the Irishman barely did better than triple frontier, right? MILLION VIEWS YEAH Six so the Irishman is the biggest like prestige one that they the. I still haven't seen it. It's I've never seen. By the running I've ever been put off by that like to fuck you know. Yeah, it's definitely does not earn. It's a seventeen hour running time The wrong. Missy made it I I was happy to see that. Lauren lap kiss star. Triple frontier I'm kind of intrigued because that's one that I've heard people bring up since it came out and be like that movies. Absurd, and also like you know, a lot of people saw I guess. So I might have to rewatch. That got that one last job. Yeah do do love me some one last job one last job. I wonder how the Spike Lee movie will end up placing on that. Cracking the top probably not. Like I mean the Irish may not sound. Like that's a prestige film. Like in terms of like what how they, the stuff that just like explosions or super, had like wacky premises like bird box, or something or celebrity stuff that seems to be. The owners I mean I I would assume that a lot of these are like international audience like. They are so popular. That tends to hold true that movies like extraction that are star first of all international movie stars, but also our action like explosion. Speak every language Bro. As I always say. The. emails. But. It's really impressive that like the wrong. Missy made it onto the list because like you know or more mystery. Adam Sandler apparently. Just popping, yeah, I think I was shocked to see at number nine bill angles just sell him. was was on there so good for him. Here's this. Yeah Bro. ally. It is I. Think you're handing it. That's what it is. I fucked deliver. Here's a sign. Here's. So he's handing out merch. During. Really is really fucked. How we disrespected entire body I stand up routine entirely by marketing. A marketing team! And here's your more obvious. Tears or subway sandwich? This is the funniest sandwich I've ever eaten. anyways, do you guys to discuss? What's in the NETFLIX's top ten? Pick a movie to rewatch. We're not gonNA. We're going to discuss it on Tuesday because I'm going to be out for Monday's episode. Okay so. I are beefing. But the beef! Be, Bro who? Fart? I I remember the first time I heard that I was so I was like a I. Don't know it was confusing and I didn't like it because it didn't make sense you beef. I heard camp because that's when you interact with people from other states for the first Gulf smells Great Fart, smelling beef than. Somebody somebody grilling a steak would like IRV to provide. I burst. Medium rare far king. So. Why do you serve just obese somebody's ass? Damn. USDA prime this. Yeah doing. What are we doing? What happened I? Thanks, thanks for the devil himself. Yeah, So I feel like the movie that has most in common with some of the ones on the list is at number one. On the NETFLIX top ten. That is the old guard that is A. Charlene's Theran of action. Actioner as We call it action. where she plays a two thousand five hundred year old. Like warrior, and there's like three other. Eternal or More, tolls. So that I've heard is very bad. Oh so. It looks cool Yeah Jason Pardon was tweeting that it's based around the myth that like everything is getting worse in the world as opposed to like that history was better. That is a modern world. I mean it's gotten very much worse than. In the past four years, but it's not worse than it was like a seventeen hundreds right right? Oh, were you there? Were you there? Yeah, historian, Hugh. Drugs is at number two. That's just a whole I went to Dare I. Know I know what the Hell Yeah I was in the game Bro from two thousand and two hundred seven, I spoke at my high schools or middle schools. Dare graduation by the way I was the keynote speaker, and that's not a joke and I got. What did you really yeah so funny? I didn't know that yeah I think I talked about this kind of pulled a scumbag. Move to get there. What did you do like? Everyone had to write a speech and they picked one at the end. And I like you. Get. He's Burg address. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it was no. I was like I. I was like I. Like someone I knew I, like pretended I was closer to like alcohol related event than than I was. Oh. You built up fake fake sympathy for yourself. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I told him he's excellent. In terms of. You rely on the voice of of the others. Sad. I was hooked on allegory that was my of. This. A competitor to hook hooked on phonics. Children the. Bush. I can't stop watching Allison Wonderland wherever the. Movie, the allegory to the gold standard. You're not wizard of Oz. Dammit, Blake. Jackson! Nice! Try. I was so close to appealing to so many people with that with that. Standard. Hey kids in new kind of Plato. You guys are hooked on allegories. All right now, allegory of the Cave, okay moving on number three down to Earth. You. No, I was. Joe. so anyway. No I get it. Down into sack Ephron thing where he came out as like a bear, he's like very like. He's. New, look for him. I mean he did. They were like his agents are like enough. People think you're hot. That I can get Netflix's to pay to go on vacation and we're GONNA. Make a show. That's right. You just got to be like weird stuff and he's like. Yeah, fuck it. Let's do it, so you know that's a level of fame we can all aspire to. The Laura Racks, which I've. Mentioned I watched recently with my kids. Not Not that fun to talk about because. Fine and A. allegory that is probably accurate I've seen the other I've seen a unsolved mysteries. I've seen babysitters club. SCENE BABYSITTERS! Yeah, yeah just. Passively I've lived. I know based off old book series. Yeah, they revived. They revamped it, but it's funny like the aesthetic is still very much rooted like in the books like that. We saw when we were in school. And like they kind of have like these funny references to the nineties, but it's it's take place in the nineties. No, no, no, it's like current, but there's you know they like to. They like to blend the two like visuals that there's a lot of Shawn Kemp references. And shrimp more OUGHTA debt lift shrimp. Rising amount of. would be surprised I. Mean obviously we figure. We'll be baked into any television show, but yeah, oh. Yeah River like my dad's going to Wayman Tisdale, concert. Space. People don't know that he's not good in the post. Anyway, so riverdale blend of like present tense and a and the fifties, but that's funny that they're doing that with like that sort of Pastiche with a ninety show that's. World is fuck a darts desire, warrior nun, these are all shows Jeffrey Epstein, filthy rich very talked about wait. Sorry, real quick. Why were you watching the babysitters club? Just Co exactly. Because you know I was a big Fan of the book series that Peewee Scouts Goosebumps anything from the scholastic truck. Well now got a big fan so I don't know I just watch a lot of stuff passively her majesty with someone I'm my okay. WHO's that? WHO's that? What is this? Who is this? Did it get good reviews? I feel like I might have seen that. reviews the baby I. Don't know I. didn't I completely saw in a vacuum? I was like what the fuck babysitting. Yeah, okay, let's try that out and it was. They went by the New Yorker. Give it a a rave. Wow the other thing that is interesting now as to old washed guys from the nineties, there is a new movie that came out called fatal affair. That's a Netflix original starring Nia long and Omar EPPs. WHOA, and this okay does the description a lawyer is caught in terrifying game of cat-and-mouse when a drink with an old friend escalates into an obsession that jeopardizes everyone she loves.

Best Desserts - 2019 in Review

"This is only a two hour drive. I feel like maybe we should be going because it made my best meal in a major best dessert so date night. Yeah hour hour drive for a date night for peanut butter pie over the extra PACA. Peanuts travel podcast episode. Four ten main is the only u s state this shares. Its border with only one other state. It touches New Hampshire to the West but the rest is surrounded by Canada in new. You know Hello travel nurse and welcome to the extra packing peanuts travel. Podcast the show that teaches you how to travel more while spending less and joining me today. Of course is the man who will travel to multiple ice cream shop locations in one day. All in the name of Research Travis Travis. That's but you didn't even introduce yourself so your got the person who will come with WHO will say she doesn't really want ice cream but then we'll in the name of research also get ice cream at both ways chopped throughout a day. My wife concentrate companion heather. Yeah I mean. I don't usually usually double dip on the ice cream now if it's doughnuts on the other hand. I wonder like donuts a little bit more than ice cream and I'm sure that there will be both of those things on our list today because we are talking about our best desserts of twenty nine teen we are. Obviously you know the whole year in review series. We absolutely love you. Guys love that too which is great of course meals and desert get a ton of feedback because everyone loves meals sales and dessert. So this is part of our eight year in review series. So if you have have you been listening or even if you haven't part one was our travel superlatives part to our travel stats three our best meals part four. Our best coffee part five best wine part six six best beer and now we're on part seven best desserts and we're ready to rock and roll here at we as ever knows when we talk about at this stop. We don't tell our list of time. I don't have any idea what's on your list. Do you have any idea what's mine other than just in our brain. We're kind of guessing but I asked you how. How many do you have? And you said eight and I also had eight so it worked out perfectly put these lists and then you know you might have seven nine nine and we'll figure out okay. Let's make one or two hundred mansions or you'll add this. Or what have you but today. Eight perfect right on. We're going to give you are sixteen. Best Desserts of twenty nineteen eighteen. There might be some overlap. Of course I'm sure. Do you have any honorable. Mentions because I don't I just put everything straight straight on the list. Yesterday might be the first list show with no honorable. Oh mentioned you're seeing ninety. Okay I do have one I was GONNA say he quote in here. Maybe means we didn't eat enough good desserts this year. I okay in two thousand twenty. I'm committed to eating more dessert. I think that's the best all right. I'm sneaking. I'll sneak in an honorable mention honorable mention for me salt and Straw ice cream in Portland. Okay that's my number eight because for me I felt like it had to make the list because it is our favorite ice cream or at least it was our favorite a stream and it's been on the list every single year and it's still amazing ice cream. The hardest part with these lists is what do you do with the things that are just consistently amazing over and over and so now we have been talking about salt and Straw and a lot of you have gone to salt and Straw. Remember if you go to any of these places use the Hashtag Graham Hashtag e pop sent us we we get people sending us pictures of them going to salt and Straw a lot and so we've been talking about Straw for what four five six years. Now I'm putting an honorable mention because I still love it. It's absolutely amazing ice cream. I cherish every time that I saw. That was the very first stop. We cotton to Portland this year in two thousand nineteen bear. First Place we went was not even to our AIRBNB. It was directly to salt and Straw. So that's how much we like it but fortunately our AIRBNB was only three minutes terms we picked AIRBNB was specifically because it was by salt and Straw and great notion beer which we've talked about so I always have an issue of where or do we put these things that we know are going to be amazing so this year for me. It was honorable mention fair enough. But I put it as my number eight. So we'll just get started started in and I'll go first with my number eight zones draw. It's incredible they have locations all over the West Coast now in obviously Oregon where it started in Portland and then down into California in some of the bigger cities there so you can find songs draw you can find it in pints at the grocery stores but but you can also I mean not not over here on the east coast. I don't know why come on so on Straw because you can get Jenny's ice cream which isn't on my list this year here. I don't think that we actually physically went to Jenny. Shop in nineteen but that as creams also incredible. Yeah I think so straws probably looking to boost up there you you know distribution at some point but yeah they're headquartered in the west coast so that's a long way for ice cream to make check no you can buy pints and get them shipped like I could get them individually shipped it to me here on the East Coast which I may have to see if we end up doing. Thank for you. We have been gone out to Portland at least once a year. So Shaw fix I will say that Sautin Straw is probably my least favorite instagram to follow. Because every time I followed there talking about the new flavors they avid each month. And when I can't get it I get bummed out so it's like one of those things I follow my call. Look at these amazing flavor. So so my honorable mention my number eight is an ice ice cream place. I have a lot of ice cream places on the list this year. I felt like we went very ice cream. Heavy which to me is fine. There are few non ice cream desserts here here too but my number eight is sweet cow in the Boulder area pay. That's way higher on my list number eight because I just I loved it that one that they had with the peanut butter cups in it. Oh my goodness yeah I think so. Good if you guys are wondering we have done at best ice cream episode that actually came out in two thousand nineteen nineteen you. That's all about all the best ice cream ever eaten. So you WANNA go listen to that if you like ice cream but we are peanut butter like are both of our favorite. Avert flavors are probably peanut butter. Flavors right I mean mine is for sure with chocolate. I like it with chocolate. I prefer a little more vanilla but whether it's peanut butter ice cream name or chocolate ice cream. Vanilla ice cream with peanut butter ripple or peanut butter cups in it We are peanut like we like the flavor peanut butter. Yes there are people. Don't yes I mean. In other countries peanut butter is in a huge thing. In reese's peanut butter cups are not a huge thing and other countries. Why Hey I don't know it's amazing right so we'll talk about sweet cow which is in the boulder area? There's one in boulder and there's some in Lewisville and the in Colorado. Yeah we'll talk about that when we get to it. That was my number eight awesome. My number seven is not ice cream but keeping on the peanut butter topic. This is the piece of peanut butter cake that we got at Steven Cook. Okay again at the Beach Margate. She'll be on my list but much higher. Okay okay so again. Isn't sure if you had forgotten about I didn't because I would have forgotten but you brought this up on our best meals episode and as soon as you did I ran to the desert part of my notes and wrote it in so I wouldn't forget it so there's GonNa be some overlap here guys. We'll get to it when shook much higher on my list so we'll get to it then. My number seven isn't ice cream. One of the few non ice cream desserts that we had well. We had a lot of not ice cream cheese. It's one of the few best non is coming to search. We had in two thousand nine hundred. This just happened recently. This was the key lime pie bar that might an thank you made for our Sherry Family Christmas party just a few weeks ago and number seven. It was incredible so I have really started to like key lime Popeye and key lime stuff a lot more in the last year year and a half. Obviously it's great you know in the summer it's it's you know it's made for having it in warm weather either but we had it in Philadelphia in the winter and she was like I don't get it. Why are you breathing about this so much? Just a key lime pie cut up into bars and I said well if if you're making key lime pie then it's GonNa make good key lime bars and it was fantastic and was the only dessert that was like. It flew off the table at the family reunion union so much that had a run in and grab some and take it away so they had more and I could bring it to my two uncles. who were like? We didn't even know that was out yet so everyone loved the key. It was very good. It was very good in key. Lime famine you are key lime fan a little bit. Yeah I mean I like a good key lime pie I Having I mean I do. I didn't think about that. One is being one of my best desserts. Ever like I said I more of chocolate doughnut. Type desert the key lime or lemon meringue I used to love in marine but the key lime pie with the Graham Cracker crusts I think has trav- loved Graham Cracker acker. That's the key that's what you like the most about it and these key lime bars had to Graham crackers all right. That's the key. Well now we know what to make for traveler ago. It was just my birthday key. Lime Pie went over. My number six is also a place near us in the city of Philadelphia called. Take life now. This is a whole bake shop so specifically at cake life I love their Nanaimo Bar Which is actually a little dessert mead in moving on Vancouver Island and they just don't have an immediate at this shop in Philadelphia? It's the best Komo bar ever and they also have delicious cakes cupcakes cookies. I had pumpkin pie there this year. I don't even really like like Pumpkin Pie. That much of all the pies out there. It was incredible. I don't know what they did. It was so creamy and smooth. It almost tasted like Pumpkin cheesecake. She's cake more it. It was just so good I loved it so pretty much anything cake. Life will be one of the best desserts. You've ever eaten even beyond anything so see highway maker. Her birthday cake. I would tend to disagree. I liked cake life a lot the first couple of times I went. I have had some really really fantastic things that cake life. But there've been other things that I haven't been as impressed with so you're spoiled. I think that I mean I don't what what is happening. I have had a few things that he claimed that I thought were just like what we had. I don't know we had was confetti. Cake was not that great and said that was the thing. I'm a big panik. Confetti cake and Confetti cake was not that good it was just so so so so it wasn't bad but but that's one thing out of like fifty things that they make their and all well if all forty nine other things are amazing. I wouldn't say all forty nine I'd say half were very very amazing and then half. We're well I guess you'll like all of you listening. We'll just have to go to cake life and see who's right travel heather because me and beyond say the Queen of all things think that cake life is a me so that I guess maybe it was my issue is they make AAC beyond says birthday cake and they had their the birthday cake day made for beyond saying we got a slice of it and I thought it was just okay. That was my least favorite thing that they did there. Although that is their claim to fame so that was a little interesting. But you're right than I am. Abortion credible the Pumpkin pie which. I'm not a huge fan of either also also very very good good so I'm just here number six. I guess mine in European my number. Well that's right. It's on my list. My number six is Luca in Split split Croatia so this is look ice cream bar. Gelato bar specifically the peanut flavor. A lot they have their travel was obsessed with this so much all of it the day that we were leaving because we were in Split for about twenty four hours it was a very quick time in Split we spend one night there and the next day we had to go to the ferry and and the night before you had gone to Lugano just right before they closed right right. We had gone to get dinner and Luca was right there and I ran over and gets got some July so I had like a bite or two of it and then the next day. You're like okay. We have to go back to well. Luka is all the way on the other side of split the part of the downtown par are we there all the palaces and the ferry is just really far so we had to walk it was probably a good miority long distance and and then walk all the way back to the to get on the ferry in time and we actually didn't end up getting seats on the ferry because Sweden. I actually sat in the car because there's nowhere to sit anyway. Anyway I guess the end of the ice cream is that good the GELATO. Sorry was that good that we made the trek to it. Yeah it was about twenty five minutes out of the way to go get this gelato the day before left on the ferry or left on the ferry but I will say i. My opinion was validated a bit because then when we went to Dubrovnik we had a photo shoot with this girl who was from Croatia and and she is from split. And so you know we're taking it was taking picture is going to get ice cream. What do you guys like to like? Go get ice cream skin pictures of us. You know candid pictures of that and she said Oh were you in Split and I said Yeah and she goes by far the best shot on ice cream there as Luca and I was like I would agree. I was just there yesterday from from local. So if you're in Split definitely Luca we tried a lot of July Lucas. The best hands down so my number five is the first donut on my list and that is the donuts at discovery in Victoria British Columbia. I'm Anne Cooper Island so when we were on Vancouver Island we went to a few donut places and discovery was just my favorite favorite. It's a it's a coffee shop there and they have just incredible donuts. We did a whole like we were there with our British Friends Maria and Marin an Dan courting Kalem and I think maybe trans you I remember you. I think you were doing something else and we brought some back for you. We had a whole doughnut tasting. I think between between the six of US and wit. We got at least ten donuts. I'm not exaggerating. I would be surprised if it was only A. Yeah well I mean some. Some of them were huge. They had you know like an apple fritter and like really big donors. I mean we just cut them into pieces. We would all sample them and we would drink our coffee and and we sat outside. It was the summer. Sounds like you might make it to your best experiences. Wanting Jesus a great time and of course was super super active. Active Kalem was playing with him running around with him and we were all just taking turns so it was a really fun time with incredible doughnuts and very good coffee. So those of you who know me know I love coffee. I love donuts so when you can get both in the scene place. That's pretty special. First on the list I know maybe you should even higher after talking about that might. It's only my number five discovery. Donuts is that does that have multiple places. There's that might that one of those back alleyway or no no two locations. I'm not sure I'd have to look that Outta my number five. This is going to be. I don't know I might get some flack from this and I feel bad saying this. You're GonNa have to tell me how you how you feel more number. Five is an ice cream place in Portland. Oregon sell that. This ice cream place overall is better than salt and Straw it just this year made the list because it was the best singular ice cream flavor that I had this year okay. This is the peanut peanut butter dream ice cream flavor from Ruby Jewels Ale my Oregon. So I've been ritual one other time and it was. It was okay and this time we are at a place called porky. No the TACO place right there in Portland and we were hanging out and I saw ruby jewels again and I had been there before and I thought all right well. I'm going to give it another shot because I went in they had some really good flavors including this flavor peanut butter dream so I got the peanut butter dream flavor and when I had it I thought for whatever reason in that moment. This was the best ice cream flavor that I had in Portland for the year so again Ruby Joel. Good ice cream saw. Install one of my favorite ice creams in the world. I would still say so strong. I like their ice cream. More but ruby jewels peanut butter dream was an insanely good ice cream flavor. I guess yeah I mean I tasted it was good but I'm not the ice cream connoisseur. Issue are so you know if I'm putting on this list and I'm putting it as I mean I don't. It's not that I didn't want to just. That's a hard thing to say that there was a better ice cream than saw saw strong for the second mission coming from you. Yeah I mean saw Straw had some really cool seasonal flavors they had a you know a pancake bacon eggs one like a camp fire on the hell you know that was interesting but yeah my favorite flavor of the trip of this year okay. Fair enough land was Rubio's tools peanut butter dream ice cream number. Five number five. I have an update on discovery coffee. It looks like there are about five locations around Victoria and up in Sandwich And we went to the one I believe went to the one on Oak bathers one. And then there's one like right downtown. We went to those and the donuts they have have. There are Yanni's donuts all right so discovery. Coffee Yanni's gots but you get your knees donuts at like fresh everyday delivered so yum yum yum. Okay so getting back to my list. We are on number four which we already talked about. Was this week. How in Boulder Colorado ice cream spot? But we didn't. I mean we did not touch on too much watch. This is just really good ice cream really nice. People really good ice cream and the first time I was there was a couple years ago. I may have told this story before they is you know I. I've never been here. I usually like to chat to people up getting ice cream like to chat with people. Well I've never been here. You know I want him to allow be big. It's cool that I'm or be okay with me trying a bunch of flavors so I was telling me I've never been there if I haven't and they actually gave me a free ice cream. Is it your first time here. We go this on us. They are so oh nice there. It's really fun inside. They have like these blow up cows that you can also buy of course wanted one. But you know we're in Colorado and I'm going to bring it home with us but it's a cool shop. It's fun in there and the customer service is very good and they let you try as many flavors as you want which is a huge plus because when people don't let oh you taste number one. Traffic is like no way. It's almost an automatic disqualification from one of my best ice cream if they don't let you taste flavors in less is it's just incredible good but I don't think I've ever had that. I don't think I've ever had a place that didn't let you taste and then was amazing. I've had that taste and then they weren't that good that's that's why they don't let you taste. Maybe they're not good and they they let you taste you and you just walk out. I don't know who does that though. I don't know tastes in walks people might i. Don't no no we don't have. It's horrible I would buy the cheapest thing on the menu for sure and I mean it's still ice cream. How bad can impeach? You made the effort to go there. You might as well get it all right. So you're number. Four sweet cow in bowling minus four is an ice cream place and when we were down in Florida for ten days we made an an effort to go to a lot of different ice cream places. My brother was with us for a bit of that portion. He loves ice cream as much as I do. My mom with was with us she also loves ice cream. She has been sending we picture. She's back in Florida right now without us. Shame on her and she on us because she has sent me to photos of two different ice creams on in the last Khalili so she loves ice cream too so we did a lot of ice cream reconnaissance when we were down in Florida. The best one that we had was hayes and that was an in the insurers Florida and just a cool spot You know it's just a little strip mall although they are going to be moving locations down into Madeira beach which is great because I love Madeira Beach RUN BY A British couple and I guess their kids. I don't know if the girl there was a kid but a British lady and her husband. I believe he's British too. Do they just like Florida. They moved to Florida. They took over this ice cream place. It's all homemade ice cream. Of course it's not gonNA make the list of it's not homemade And they just had some really cool flavors they let you try whatever you wanted. Yeah they had like a lot of Harry Potter theme stuff which didn't matter to me but they played on a side note has never read or seen and never will Andy Harry Potter. I just. It's fine I'm not saying it's bad because I am I. Sure reading them to Witton Hadley. When they're your old? That would probably be the only way that I would end up doing. Is If I'm reading to my kids but either way they just played up on the British scene which was fine co you know. How often do you have like a British couple there in a small mall town in Florida so that was neat and their ice cream was absolutely phenomenal? This was the last day of our trip and just like the last ice cream truck that we made and I'm so excited to go up. It wasn't the last one it was the night before and this is how insane. He is literally on the way to the the airport. That is true. Made a stop at another ice cream place. You're right. This is the second to last. We tried that other as complaints briefly because my brother brought in some brought some back to us but we had to make our own stop there. It was not as good as Hayes Hayes in Indian shores Florida the especially. They had a flavor so they're peanut. Butter stuff was phenomenal but data flavor. Seen before and I really like this maybe as much as the peanut butter was called brown sugar sour cream. It was it was. Yeah you're right. I had Kinda forgotten about Hayes because I don't think about ice cream as much as trump does. I think that travel dreams about ice cream. Even I'm thinking about out at least once a day so I had kinda forgotten about Hayes. It was exceptional very well. I'm glad that we're doing the list together. Because you remember a lot more of as you said the non ice cream desserts so my number three. I'm sure it is on your list but it might be higher. That is this Shug okay. Shy Guy is my number two okay. So why don't we talk about now. Okay we'll just talk about check. I is in the beautiful quaint town. City of Burlington Vermont. And it's not really downtown. It's kind of an odd spot spot. where like two roads connect on your way out of town in town but at the very edge dry? Like you wouldn't be you probably you wouldn't walk to it from the main pedestrian street now in Burlington and it doesn't have a lot of flavors but the flavors that it does have her chest incredible. We stopped here because I don't know if somebody had tweeted or set on instagram. That shy guy was very good. My Buddy Ethan Waldman who lives up in Burlington. He also loves ice cream so I texted him. It was like listen Burlington for a few days. What ice cream should we get? So of course. That's the home. Brewing is the home of Ben and Jerry's right But he said listen. You gotta Try Shijie Lotto Outta town and so we were going out to to a brewery and we decided to stop and try shy guy on the way back so it was like eight. PM and they. I think they closed at nine PM. And they only had a a few flavors laugh right because they make the Giada each day and half they had this chocolate sorbet so normally sorbet sorbet is non dairy. So I don't. I don't have to eat sorbet like I can eat dairy and do eat a lot of dairy but one of the players. How was this chocolate souffle? And usually forbe's fruit you know. They're making fruit flavored stuff. Non Dairy and it's more icy in. It's not as creamy but I figured I'll give this a try so he gave me a try of it. I don't know how they made this chocolate chocolate. sorbet taste is visited but it was as good as any chocolate Jalad. Like Dairy Bay. Shot I mean. Did they use coconut milk for it. I think I don't know what they did. I'm not sure but we got it with the chocolates or bait and then coffey right. Oh my word when you 'cause I was in the car because the kids were sleeping and tragedy Brennan and you brought that out and I made you go back in and get more because I was like. This is so incredible. It was an awesome combination. The acid survey with the coffee so on top of that shy did not open till noon the next day and so this was the night before we were getting ready to leave and shy guy. Didn't in opening noon next day and we were planning on getting on the road by ten. Am because we had a long drive. Well I just so happened to leave my credit card at the brewery from the night before which shy. Hey guys on the way to it on purpose maybe subconsciously so regardless we extended our time in Burlington just long enough that we could then go back to shy that next day because I thought man they only had like two of their six flavors or through their favors. Let's go back and so we went back and and Again they had a few different ones almost like a peanut butter based flavor. They had sweet cream. I tried them all the guy. There shot the owner. I forget his name now. Now the guy who's this Guy Super Nice guy not that shy really friendly you know. I told him how much I loved. Ice Cream trav- you are very extroverted in king at the person to talk so maybe he is shy. I mean maybe he studied. I read up on his on his website so I knew a little bit about him like hey so like he studied about Gelato in Italy. Like you're living in Italy and you like so much and talking about why he brought back to Burlington about the podcasting and equipment right in with you. I want to. I want to get him on the PODCAST for sure. It Really Nice Guy Yeah and they're flavors are fantastic and cool story everything. It's great about Shaghai. We had just recorded our best.

It's that good good so shy guy who was my number two was your number three my number three now. Maybe I know this is going to be on your list because you raved about it and this was was another thing on this trip. Another ice cream on this trip That is the PB Jay and fluff ice cream at sweet creamed area and bid for number one literally my the number. So we'll wait to talk about that so just to recap your number. Three shy Guy Gelato. my number three which will talk about peanut butter peanut butter not PJ. It's not fluff ice cream cream Garin Bedford. Main is my number three year number. Two my number two is another. Don't option I'm sorry cookies and cakes on this list I mean I'm sure we ate some good ones but which made resolution more cookies cakes and then really go well with our resolution to lose weight which we have so yeah this is this is an for success. We'll just to desert okay. Cool just all right and I don't think we should. We don't apologize. Apologize for the amount of good I. It's just we had so much good ice cream but this is a doughnut. We don't as an ice-cream and some other things thrown but these donuts you order fresh at Brown's donuts on the Boardwalk in Ocean City New Jersey. Now it's good stop. This is good stuff anytime you go to a donut. Please and they make them fresh when you order me to order a they're going to be some of the best doughnuts ever end in their their good right when you. They're not good later. Really I mean especially if you compare it to run their fresh so there's no comparison like if you're eating one after two hours it's almost like you might as well and we we talk. We've talked about federal doughnuts on this podcast. Before which is a local place in Philadelphia. They have a couple of cases where they do made to order fresh donuts. Donuts with fried chicken or you can just get fried chicken or you can just get doughnuts but those are incredible. Those are good. These are better than the browns donuts that you can can get on the word walk in Ocean City New Jersey. You have to line up and sometimes it takes thirty minutes to get your order and and it can be blazing hot like the first day that we win. This summer was about route. Ninety eight degrees. I was eight and a half months. Pregnant standing in the blazing sun on the board on the boardwalk. I went the beach. The beach is right there so I was like playing in the water with him. While you're in line I mean this is how good these donuts and trust us. We did not get them only one time during during our week in ocean city we got them multiple times. They're just so good they just melt in your mouth and it's simple. They're just cake doughnuts that they make doc and they only have I think five flavors that you put on top flavors out like cinnamon chocolate and there's a little bit of glaze. Yeah yeah ask so. They're not like the old fashioned style. donuts like bringing it back to the basis. It's not like Voodoo donuts out in Portland where you have fruit loops in Inches of ice icing. It's like please let me throw up now. Now these are the real deal. Yes they are fantastic doughnuts. I forgot about them but I I'm I'm not. I am not as big a donor fan as you but I am Hugh. I still love donuts. They are fantastic. They're the they're the best doughnuts that we get. Well I still love donuts down in Asheville. There's quite a few good donut places. Lee didn't eat those in two thousand nineteen haven't been thrown out a bunch of different. I know but hold on my good so good all right. Round donuts on the Boardwalk in Ocean City New Jersey that is your number two. Es Es it is all right my number two Shijie Lotto as we've talked about at length Definitely go check it out. You compete their instagram too. That's always fun because It made me a little bummed out all types of amazing flavors like same as was sentenced. I gotta get off this whole Gelato and ice cream shop instagram kick. Because yeah it just makes me. Then when I can't get that flavor Leery I'm driving to Burlington all my because he didn't apple cider doughnut. One it was like two days before we were there which I just noticed after one of those instagram. And I thought Oh my gosh like I. When are you doing that again? I will stay in Burlington Lincoln Vermont if you promise me. You're doing that next five days so that can be one detriment. Sometimes the places that do small batch ice cream or small batch. Anything is you don't always have AVOCA. Shaghai Giada was my number two absolutely awesome on your number one which was my number three and this is the peanut butter and fluff ice cream dairy and bitter. I mean that is correct so a fluffer nutters made me people out there. Don't know what a fluff. Another isn't new. England thing is it yes I I didn't know that yes. Are you sure if New England is and father in New England elbow you're in Pennsylvania which is pretty close but then I just to make sure I googled is fluff another and before I even finished Google put in a New England thing in all the articles at the top of the list. Because your computers listening not you know. It's it's reading your mind anything in my New England but it is. I have known this. I'm from New England and it is the official. It has been proposed used as the official State Sandwich of Massachusetts. So a puff. Another is peanut. Butter made with marshmallow fluff and off fluff marshmallow cream. It's just sugar. But it's marshmallow green and ripped marshmallow. Essentially yes so it is a new England. Thanks so so this place in Bedford mean does lots of very good ice cream but the best one was that he knit butter with fluff. It was so good. I think it's my favorite ice cream that I have ever had ever. It was very very good. I have to also also say thank you. This is why we ask you for your recommendations and suggestions because this was a reader listener recommendation and one of the reasons as I mentioned before if you haven't listened to the best meals podcast definitely go and do that but we talk about a place in Bedford Maine which is a town of like. I don't know ten ten thousand people. Super Tiny town of our best meals of the year is embiid for main. We also went up there because we knew someone recommends sweet creamed areas their favorite ice cream and to wait an amazing supposedly amazing ice cream place and a supposedly amazing breakfast lunch spot. Let's go let's make this pilgrimage so when we say we will travel for for food for dessert we do. Both of them lived up to the high because it was technically my number three standing by its bought it. I mean yeah. This was one of my top ice cream flavors of all time this peanut butter and fluff ice cream from sweet creamed air. Yeah and Maine. The state of of Maine has been listed as one of the top places visit in the world and I have always been a huge fan of Maine. I've grown up my whole life going to main almost every summer so it holds a really sweet spot in my heart. Unintended and intended sweet cream also is let me just paint the picture a very acute ice cream shop. It's in like this industrial brick warehouse and it's very cute very instagram worthy. And I think we I think you made aide me take. I mean we were taking a lot of instagram. Picks in front of a long post any. So we'll have to do that but anyway sweet cream is absolutely absolutely unequivocably. Might number one dessert. I we gotTa Range Alabama and ask them if they do the PB and fluff. Oh my wave. That's like a signature flavor in the all the time because how disappointed would you be granted. I tried to feel their other. They were very good ice cream. They they know what they're doing cones as well which is always a big you plus in my book a fantastic ice cream shop but the PB and fluff flavor. Put it over the edge. I'm with you and like as you mentioned. We love peanut butter flavor. But if you're just like a middle of the road peanut butter flavor person you're gonNA love the PB and it was subtle. It was just like the perfect amount. Perfect mount my number one. We're talking pot it is it. You already mentioned all right. My number one is the peanut butter pie. And how does your number one. I mean as long as I've known TRAV- you you have loved peanut butter Pie. I love peanut butter.

Yeah I'd love piece of Pie was hugh might not want to share with my family. So I ah we preemptively instead of because we were saying when my family was a family trip down into Ocean City New Jersey.

"Business Time"

The Tony Kornheiser Show

1:04:32 hr | 4 months ago

"Business Time"

"Previously on the Tony Kornheiser show. I think the real answer is when he comes to town usually once or twice a year to perform the warner but when he comes to town he spend a lot of time with his mom. And I think that's the main priority when he's here and then he hits back to whatever he has to do. I think a lot of time but I will ask again. Can you also say this begging came out? That's what I think it is but you could also say to him. Tony suggests put your mom in the car. It's okay I'll try the Tony Kornheiser show is on now. All righty then. This is our third podcast this week. Which makes me happy. Because I'm working makes me happy that my son is here and is socially distanced away by six feet on my uncle. Benny's table that makes me happy. This is going to be a special show today and we will get to that in a little while. I just wanted to do a brief open because two things have happened overnight that I consider big deals one is Larry Hogan the governor of Maryland was apparently shamed and beaten down by twenty five hundred dollars a year mayor in ocean city Maryland. Who said really big boy? I'm an open the boardwalk. I'm gonNA open the beaches. What are you gonNA do about it? And Larry Hogan did nothing about it and instead did something really good which is open the golf courses and opened the tennis courts throughout the state of Maryland. So as of seven o'clock this morning courses were open. Columbia will be opening tomorrow. Which makes me very happy although really all I really want to do is go to the driving range and hit for about fifteen minutes and that will that will be thrilling. The second thing That I wanted to say in the open is there is a weather report and this is not a secret weather report. This is not being denied by the trump administration. This is not fake news. Apparently on mother's Day it's GonNa be cold enough to snow in the northeast is going to get snow. Places like Binghamton are going to get snow on Mother's Day. That's not that unusual. Upstate New York when I pick my daughter up from school after her freshman year on May seventeenth. It's three inches so but but the conditions could have snow in inside the beltway in Washington. Dc But unlikely but in Cook thankfully you'll be able to get your father's Day present which is to play golf on Mother's Day but I'll be able to play mother's Day because nobody else will be out there because it will be in the thirty S. It will be in the thirties. So That's interesting so I just wanted to begin now. Did you miss the hill yesterday? I didn't see any Hale Hale in in our neighborhood. It's you know we had a little while. Having a hard reboot `wow hail no. I didn't get that didn't get that. Did it did it? Break any of your windows. You could hear it. Wow so no no. I didn't get that so now. Let let me let me say that. This is a special show. I have a special thing to read. That will launch me into what I want to say and bring on Gerry Bron. This is the copy. I'm Tony Kornheiser. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser show. I'm very proud and honored to present you. Today's show which is part of Dell Technologies Small Business Pod Ference. Small businesses are grappling with the impact of these uncertain times and looking for resources. Del Technologies has assembled an all-star lineup of podcasters to create the first ever virtual conference to share advice and inspiration for small businesses.

Podcasts search Dell Technologies Small Business pod ferments on radio DOT COM spotify or apple podcasts at the end of this episode Gary Bronze Small Business. He's going to be with us. Andrew Dana owns a small business. He's going to be with US and Michael. Sands and through extension Steve Sands. Although it's Michael owns a small business now and they're both going to be with us. I own small business. I one for two in small businesses. At the moment I went over one with chatter which was a small business and lost a bunch of dough when we got out and I have as. I've said many times here absolutely no regrets had a great time for the fence. Yeah no regrets at all and one of the things that dad did. Owning chatter was accommodate. Something that I hadn't realized was a small business but is a small business. Which is this podcast. As many of you know who've listened for a long period of time I got out of a radio deal. I didn't renew a radio deal and I am amicably left and started a podcast and the reason I did that was not because I hated radio. What we do here is a radio show. I mean most of the time when we when we're in the studio but because I didn't want to be tied to a specific locale and more importantly I didn't want to be tied to a specific clock. We make our own time on a podcast at varies every single day. And there's no such thing as a hard out at eleven fifty five thirty where you have to be off. The air doesn't work that way so it's much more accommodating to the way. I like to talk and the people that I like to bring on but it is a small business. We do have to employees where we have three. I'm an employee. Michael is an employee. Nigel is an employee and then most of the time when people come in our regulars come in we pay them as well so it is a small business and it seems to be doing well for which. I'm very grateful in one of the people who is a regular and we're sticking him out of money most of the time now because he doesn't show up physically which is his loss not ours because he shows up electronically is Gary Braun. People have known you for a long time. Sometimes we forget that you have a real job where you may go by something other than the nicknames that we have for you. Can you talk about? How Braun Braun? Film and video is who are involved in it and why you did it because your dad was a lawyer write. Your Dad worked in a firm. I mean he did not didn't have his own business so when you told them you want it to do your own business. What did he say to you? Tony Come on man you can. You can if anyone can appreciate. You can appreciate this reaction to that because my dad as as you know is from almost exactly where you're from limbaugh he he. He was also an only child from from LYNBROOK NEW YORK. His his parents both immigrants And he thought it was insanity I mean it was thought it was. It was crazy. How are you going to get paid? Yeah remember you're not going to get a weekly paycheck. What do you nuts? Go work for someone. Yeah you'RE GONNA pay for your retirement pension which you know. I don't know there was as obvious back then but I mean that's not really a thing anymore with the exception of jobs like that like law firm job so Yeah that that was not a that was not met with tremendous excitement and I was do. I was leaving albeit a not a great paying job but I was leaving a steady paying job to do that. I was producer You know for your show as can appreciate so By the way that's the people at Dell think you're not committed. I just figured this thing was dead when I heard yesterday that golf was on. I figured you my understanding that the club doesn't open till Friday. So explains it so yeah. It was You Know My my dad Worked real hard And and had a lot of pressure from his parents to get a good education which he did And it was. He wasn't crazy about about his two sons going at it alone. My brothers actually my partner and business is you know people listening. Probably do not So yeah he didn't think that was cool. I mean he wanted lawyers and doctors. You were not as you often admit you are not the most devoted student. I don't know that you took any courses it at Ju University. That prepared you for this. How did you discover that you had a talent for film and video and just describe pretty much? What you do all right. Well first things first. This is gonNA sound like a joke to your regular listeners but I didn't necessarily have an interest in business as a kid but I always loved numbers and math And and to this day Emma big numbers and math guy and of course in college that just looked like gambling. Way Over my head and driving city from drew university late at night But in adult life. That's that's mad that just naturally became an interest in money. I mean if I had a kid with my interests and and mind I would probably steer him towards career fields. My parents were Were more sort of interested in in my my happy. They were like this generation's parents. Oh just be happy. Do what makes you happy? And you'll be fine so I I didn't necessarily get that guidance or get steered it all toward any specific industry. I went to a liberal arts school. They said just studying and chase what interests you and for me it. It was actually sports more than anything. Which is what got me into sports broadcasting and ultimately to you etc as as far as what my company does we are a Full SERVICE VIDEO PRODUCTION COMPANY. Which means we? We produce video for clients and have over the years done just about anything. You could imagine short of feature film but adding music videos and commercial broadcast. A lot of our work is is corporate. Communications sales marketing investor recruitment training video We are on the GSA schedule which means we are a pre approved vendor for the federal government. So we do a fair amount of government. Work as you can imagine living living where we do And and most of most of what I learned about that I learned on the job. Frankly I mean when I was a producer in radio and had worked in radio through rate and I in fact intern and television as well In College and And that was a producer in radio and as well as working for you. I produced the redskins broadcast on that old station W. TM so At the same time my brother was a freelance video producer and we just did decided when we both got bored of of the first jobs we had ever had out of college to You know join forces and unfortunately production production is production at the end of the day right so neither of us are super technical. I'm not someone who shoots or at. It's I do direct and right on occasion. But what we're doing producers is is team building is is budget building and managing as client management And is generating work today. You work with your brother. I'm an only child. I don't know how this stuff works. There's gotta be every once in a while conflict right. I mean how is how is the conflict resolved to either of you ever say you know? Maybe I should just go out on my own and leave this thing. No you know people ask me this time Probably he is well. I don't know that he answers at the same way but I mean we we like any Dave and I are three and a half years apart. So there was. There was plenty of conflict Growing up And and really once. He went to school. Once one of US went away he was he was older said. So we we got a little more friendly And we I mean I can tell you. We've I mean we disagree about stuff but we there's never I just don't think either of us. Frankly cares enough to be completed. A bit about anything so We're we're I'm pretty laid back. Personality is as I'm sure you realize as he and the benefit of of a family business at least for us has been the when you know where your partner comes from and and and you share a lot of the same values There's never any questioning about whether someone's carrying their weight or or should I feel guilty about doing something like your show which I do. Which gets me in late to the office. Mo- you know most days when I participate on the show So I I mean I. It's not a very sexy answer I realized but I mean the truth. Is it's been pretty harmonious now. Now Dave was more classically trained Dave much to school and studied communications at Ithaca College and studied film and his first job was in the video production industry albeit in a in a freelance capacity. So you know. I had some some decent on the job training when I came to it but I was. I was still relatively young at the time this was he. I mean we were both in our twenties when this thing started in the late nineties. So and you're on the road a lot to do this. I mean you're absent from the show because you have jobs and the the rule of of this show always is if you have a job go to your job and come back whenever it's convenient for you but you also do those camping trips with your children and I'm just wondering with everything that you have to do. That must be a little bit hard to balance as the as travel in your job ever been a burden to you. In terms of being a parent my kids will say. I don't believe it's too but they will say I was GONNA lot. Because I was a sports writer. I was gone a lot. You know I just wonder how that is for you I definitely I well. I like to travel for starters but But I enjoy the work travel less and less the older I get And it is problematic for me when I start to Miss Stuff. I mean kids events and school events and sporting events and whatnot but You know my kids always say to me that that I'm lucky because I don't have a boss and my response is you know. Are you kidding me? I have a hundred bosses. I mean Ev. Every client is boss. So it's The nature of of my business. Now it'll be different for Michael Sands who owns a retail establishment. But but my business gimme my phone and my laptop and I can do it from just about anywhere so the good news is that I I I have some freedom to to run around and do things and the family trips like you mentioned but the flip side of that is. I am never not plugged in. I am never not wired and I am never not accessible for for clients or or even colleagues to us if we're in the middle of a project that means review or something so You know you never know when when you When you on the rare occasion that I I should say look back on my life and say man if I knew then what I know. Now you know what I do anything differently. I don't think I would do anything differently. But the job in your late twenties when you've been working for for peanuts under a bunch just see students at a radio station. I had been. I don't mean new. I mean done management that we had at the time The notion of starting your own business is so exciting. All be a business owner. You know I didn't know what the Hell it meant I just knew I wouldn't be under someone else's thumbs so And not only that. I mean think of especially in my industry Tony with the changes in technology in the last twenty five years have tremendous tremendous. I I just I guess I wonder you know most people when they start a business have expansionist dreams Are you at a size and capacity where you're good now? Do you want people want more businesses? Is it good now? And has your business been affected at all? Certainly negatively hasn't been affected by what's going on now like so many small businesses are do the last part I I mean. Of course we've been impacted by this. The the most of the corporate work that we had Lined up and we're in the middle of went away essentially overnight when when lockdowns began. When I say went away some of it actually did go away. Some of it was just postponed indefinitely But as I said earlier we do a fair amount of government work. And we're in the middle of the few government contracts that we're able to continue to move and because of the of the digital nature of what we do a lot of work can get done remotely so it it has not Ground us to a halt by any means. It has a lot of people and it hasn't hasn't threatened our viability fortunately but But certainly we've felt it and are anxious as everyone is for Things to get back to I guess how they're going to be. I don't WanNa say normal because I don't think they'll ever be back to normal as far as a any expansionist dreams of course The plan that we hatched my dining room table. Twenty five years ago was was to conquer the world but but we quickly decided or in the course of the first five to eight years. I guess as we were growing decided that we You know the the lifestyle gets a little bit addictive. I mean I one of the things I like most about my job is that allows me to do this job with you. I mean I don't know of many jobs that that would afford that flexibility Or it enables me to to decide eleventh hour that I'm GonNa run somewhere with the family on Thursday night and and you know Miss Work Friday so we kind of decided that we wanted to get as big as we could get and and still afford ourselves the the lifestyle that we wanted and the ability to work from home day a week if we wanted to and and So I don't WanNa make it. Sound like we ever consciously decided to not grow. Obviously we're always looking for for more business. We've had opportunities over the years to branch out into other areas of the business or start additional divisions of the business and just decided you know what let's we we know what we know and let's stick with what we know but I think that's a very Personal decision that would that from business to business would change as you know as as a you know. Small business owner. I mean there's probably you could and maybe you've had these discussions. Hey you could branch off. You could do this podcast I do. I like what I do not want to do anything. Get you out of here on this. You got three kids. They're not yet of an age where they know what they're going to do. Probably they may have James of what they're going to do are any of them. Do you think any of them would WANNA go into your business and if they did with say no or yes Well so when you say my business my industry like that. I want to step in for you and continue the family business. Yeah Yeah like Michael Sans did. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah because I think as part of that answer is that of course my kids are fifteen fifteen and eighteen and and is anyone listening with kids. Age knows they're all video producers. I mean you know what a kid now making videos are doing all my kids do all day is to talk videos and and that sort of crap in and they're all way better at it than I am If so I I would never talk someone out I've never taught my kids out of my industry. I mean I would be blunt with them about the the pros and cons but I I mean I like what I do And I like the life it's afforded me so I would not tell them. I can't think of any reason I would tell them. You know you don't want to get into video production As to whether or not they wanted to get into the family business and it's funny because my my brother and I don't really think of it as quote the family business. It's just sort of this thing that we're doing together. I mean it it it may as well be a Bagel shop but I I honestly. I hadn't considered that because there there there hadn't been interest so I I mean I guess On its face. I would consider that short but that kind of stumped me I'd have to. I'd have to think on that. I mean there's no reason why I wouldn't want them But they would have to earn your stripes. Now I mean it it. It's tough so we're we're a very small business. I mean we're we're five ish full-time depending on how you count. So my kids know everyone who works for us? And they all know my kids It's not like owning a hundred person company and your kid comes on and immediately as executive vice-president. I mean that would be my biggest concern with folding a kit in just that they they are in their way So you know my life so so much fun and Feels so easy and natural for me. I mean my biggest fear in my kids and probably discussed this with you. I just want them to understand the importance of a day's work so As long as I could teach them that they'd be welcome share. Thank you gary. I'm happy to have you on this show. This is our special show. We have special France. Thanks Gary Talk to you. Slide honored to be among the first.

Just love him terrasson in the high flyers playing in the sands brothers. Michael and Steve were as you know this is a small business podcast and what better small business for us then Calvert Woodley which is a business that we admire very much and we shop that all the time and and Steve and Michael Grew up with this I easy. Ed started this when Steve. When did he start this I believe it was in the sixties I think. Fifty four of the family being in the liquor business Cavalry Woodley Switched over from Woodley wine and liquor from just across the street from the Uptown Theater Moved Up to where it is now forty three thirty nine. Connecticut Avenue I think like maybe eighty one or eighty two But it's been in business for fifty four years in the family long. So what was it like and interrupt each other anytime you want to start can start. What was it like growing up with a family business like we were you in there? Will you unpacking boxes? We slicing cheese. We've stocking the shelves I mean or did you not as kids. Michael you go. I I did not One one Christmas break home from college I did help out and stock the shelves but no it was not expected of us. It was not pushed on us. It was it was really not like that at all Steve. Every winter break yeah. I spent every winter break Sock and shelves and Either delivering Legal back then And also Just taking stuff out to cars for people you know when it was cold or when they had you know so much that they couldn't carry themselves Just begging for a tip here and there but All the guys in there when I was like sixteen to twenty two And I used to work in there every winter break. I'm fifty one years old now and like four or five of those guys are still in there. They're the most loyal employees An employee urge. You Know My dad and my brother who owns it now They've been so loyal to the people who have worked there and the people that worked there have been so loyal to my dad and my brother for years. I mean Barest Sue Lee and all these guys live in there. Since I was a kid are still in there. Doing their thing is amazing. So let me ask this. I mean Steve. You ran away from it to pursue a career in sports. You worked at it a lot and Michael. It doesn't sound like you worked at very much at all and here you are. You've been at the store for twenty two years and you just took over when you dad retired. How did how did that come about well if I look like my brother maybe I'd be on. Tv Too but yeah right. I never wanted a real job johnny. I mean who wants to do retail and have a real chop and people had a desk. It's where a tie every day and and all that kind of thing. Those guys work hard. You know we don't we. Don't do that kind of stuff in sportscasting and I I never really had a business acumen. I never had that type of Of want or desire to do that. I was amazed at their business. I'll obeys Michael those now But that that life was not for me not when I was a kid Michael. When did you know you wanted to go into the business you know? When did you say this is? This is what I wanted to do. And what's harder over the years is it. Is it gaining the business experience or is it learning the product? I mean you you probably have to know about wine you have to know someone's GonNa ask you. I would. Yes you have to know about lying but The business is probably the tougher part. The wine You know we have our wine buyers actually another one of the guys. It's been with us for forty years. Um He's amazing. I've learned pretty much everything I've wondered about buying from him and And we have a great team so they held most of the customers. Although I have learned a lot about wine and they know a fair amount I don't know As much as some of those guys but But when did I know I knew not until about a month before I started? I had a quote unquote real job. I was living in Philadelphia. Doing retirement plan stuff and I and I enjoyed it but but I thought we didn't WanNA live in Philadelphia. I was recently married and And I thought when I moved back home and And I call my dad and I asked him about about moving back home and he said great. Like what are you GonNa do and said well thinking about working at the store? He's like cowardly I go. Yeah he's like cool so that was pretty much it. That's wonderful so he didn't even try to solicit you he didn't have it was. It was not expected of you to go into it never once wow I everybody never he never. He never pushed anybody. You know we have a younger sister. Michelle Reis top working in my older brother. David Michael. My parents never pushed us Into going into that story I. I don't know whether it has to do with all the natural light I used to steal with when I was a high school kids. I feel bad for us to do that. And I feel bad that I do that. I feel like I should give my brother like two hundred and fifty dollars worth of fear money that I stole over the years but my parents. My Dad especially never ever pushed anybody to go into the family business but I can tell you one thing as a brother of the person who took over for it Being a family business it meant the world to my father and still does to this day. that Michael went into business. was capable Ended up taking it over. You know if you're in a family business Tony you know you have to sell it if somebody in the family doesn't want to go into it or is it a capable and has the ability to take over and successfully run it and My father's been very lucky that my brother's been able to do it and It's been a natural change of hand if you will from my dad down to Michael. So it's it's it's a great thing in our family that has been able to continue like that people know who listen to this. Podcast that we talk about cowardly and lychees are- all the time and it's become a catchphrase for the podcast and we also talked about this. That Michael you send out an email to your customers in early April that you were going to close temporarily. You always said you'd be back but you said you were going to close temporarily and your brother. Steve talked on this air. How proud he was of you doing all that. What was the process? Like that led to that email and and you know how do you feel about reopening now Well I appreciate it very much listening. You guys talk about a lot and All the cheeser shout outs I see on twitter and everywhere it's really it's really flattering. And we and we really appreciate it. It's pretty funny We get a kick out of it as well. So The process was you know. Obviously it was crazy once. I think the turning point was when Adam Silver canceled the season or postpone the season and trump made that speech that one it was a Wednesday night and And then from there everything went crazy and I just thought you know this has gotta be. You know the busiest place on earth we were doing you know sixty seventy percent more business than we were at the same time last year and it was. You know great businesswise but it was. It was crazy and it wasn't that it wasn't sustainable But because it was that we didn't need to have people in the store we didn't need to have so many people in the store so I wanted to keep people safe and we have some you know with You know like my brother is talking about with all the people that have been working with us for thirty five forty years. You know. We've got some people that are you know over sixty seven sixty eight seventy and wanted to keep them safe. And and you know all the things you see about news of social distancing and all that stuff so Just kind of made the decision that the sooners. I could sort of afford to do it. We would that we would do. We would take care of our people and that we would shut down and the reason that we probably reopened when we did. 'cause you text me every other day asking me. What am I gonNA? Well when I when I got the email you a reopening I just send something back that said. Yay and I signed my name what what has changed. I mean everything changes a little bit in terms of how you deal with the customers. What are you doing now on a basically on a full-time basis that you did not do before on a full-time basis well. We don't have any customers in the store from. I think it was march nineteenth April fourth. We had no customers in the store and online orders. Only curbside pick up a delivery. You know that kind of stuff and we have continued that and You know we have different ideas and I think we'll probably easing to it with you. Know having a limited number of people in the store whether it's Pan maritime or something like that but you know what? We'll just see how it goes. Some of this stuff is done. You know some decisions you make by analysis and numbers and some you just say let's just see how it goes and what feels right. That's kind of what we've tried to do. Steve I remember when we talked about this on the air you talked about how proud you are you brother for what he done. Yeah I really was. I thought it was great I I am of the opinion that public health and safety and and people's lives really matter in all of this and I think that as things open slowly and reopened slowly. I think that the most important thing is making sure that you know we're okay. Everybody wants to push the economy. Everybody wants to get back to work. Everybody wants all the great things that we had before all this but I don't think any of that happens unless people were healthy and happy and safe and feel confident that they can go out and go to places like Calvin Woodley which they've enjoyed go into for all those years are going to the movies are going to restaurant going out for a drink or whatever you WANNA do In public life I I think it was great What Michael did I think it took a Lotta stones to do it I cannot imagine the angst that he must have had in in closing. That story as I told you that day Tony That's store's been closed for a couple of things over fifty four years holidays and the day of my mother's funeral. That's it for Michael. The close down store completely When the business was seemingly going to be up in that realm you know thinking back a liquor business and the wind. Business friendly closed. I thought was the right thing to do And I know is employees are are awfully thankful that he did Michael. I would ask you this because I would think that that in small business the most important thing to make people sleep well at night. Is the notion of loyalty that the people who frequent them frequent them for reason not just because the prices are low and not just because of convenience but because there is a connection that you make with your customers. What is your sense of of the loyalty that your customers show for you are? It's been tremendous We've sent out emails. You know like you said in early. April and You know late March and even a few updates while we were closed to let people know and every time we sent an email. I get a ton of emails back from people. Just saying we're with you. We love you. We can't wait to see you. So many Nice Messages. It's it's fantastic. And and then soon as we sent email out on Sunday at noon saying that we were going to reopen and turn on the online ordering. People people responded. We've had quite a quite a lot of orders and it's been it's been fantastic response has been amazing family. Businesses are very very interesting. You see it all the time. So and so in. Sun so-and-so daughter it's always sort romanticize it's a lot harder work than that obviously Steve. You can't be tempted to quit your job and go help out can you? You can't Oh my oh my God Tony. Kidding me chat seriously you my brother as a deal with day in day out of honestly not only could I not do it i. I have absolutely no interest unless Mike career blows up the only time I whatever go into Kevin. Woodley is to hang out. She's a radio talk to some of the guys I used to work with When I was a kid who are still there just kind of enjoy my brother success in the store we drive by and we go in Whenever we're home We get a chance to go down there Hang out maybe steal. Temper shooter out of the refrigerator. Their scouter But you know it other than that. No we don't. We don't often talk shows. Fourteen weeks of vacation Steven's coming. Yeah so I don't get you out of here on this. I'll talk to Steve directly on this. You not this Sunday.

Like against the rules with Michael Lewis rise with Rachel Hollis and ear biscuits with retinal link for the complete lineup of episodes visit. Dell Technologies pod for ins- DOT COM and. I can't even spell that. That's the longest word I've ever heard of. This is the Tony Kornheiser show on. And this is John Stewart. Plano's back in if you don't think Niger knows what he's doing till I tell you the name of this song. The name of the song is your mom was right by Don Stewart. Who's a great great talent? Michael of people. I Don Stewart want to send in original music do with music by emailing jingles at Tony Kornheiser show and you say new self you know. What is your mom was right. What does that mean? Well you know as we continue with the small business episode. Here we have Angie Dana with US and entertain. His bagel shop is called coal. Your mother I mean so. That's why we do this. He's also involved with Timber Pizza. That's with your fiancee. Right timber. Pizza both are would say so. Life and business partner will call. Your mother was named one bone apetite best new restaurants of two thousand nine hundred and that sort of special for Michael me in this regard. Adam rappaport runs bone appetit. And we know him. We've played golf with him. Everything is interconnected on this show. Everything's really actually by one of these days. Maybe yeah it depends on if you come through with free stuff. I mean that's how everything works about this got you. You did an interview in bone apetite about how restaurants are handling this particular corona virus pandemic crisis. Now can you explain what you did and if you saw it coming what your plans were because you know. Restaurants restaurants are going to be affected much more than some other types of businesses. Yeah no for sure. We We we saw a common and instead of you know slowly peeling it back in doing things on the fly. We decided to shut for two weeks when this whole thing hit and just sort of look at it from all angles. What's a safe way? We can operate. How can we pro? You know how can we make food with a skeleton crew so we took two weeks sort of look at best practices? How we operate moved. Everything online everything Contact was picked up at the shop so we moved to pick up outside. Nobody's coming inside And after two weeks we decided to reopen the shops Were operating with about thirty percent of the staff. We typically would pared down menu But that's basically the only way we can do it while being social distancing and keeping the staff safe And then we also only allow gas to work that can drive or walk to work so no public transport. Nobody who lives with anybody. Who's high risk So just trying to keep everybody safe while also keeping money in people's pockets and how is how has it worked out to this point? Have you established enough loyalty to your family? Business that that people are happy and they will seek you out or have. You noticed that you hadn't done that yet. No I've been amazing I we've been super transparent and that we're trying to keep all one hundred and forty four employees Paved the sort of a cluster. And you know. Some of the workers who may be undocumented. Couldn't even apply for an employment. We've are our goal here just to keep everybody paid and we've been transparent about that so the community has come out in droves. We've been almost as busy as we were pre corona and. Then you see it on the orders. People are leaving huge tips. They're buying t shirts and mugs at a rate. They certainly weren't before this thing. So the community is. I think. Really rally behind us. We've been transparent and just saying hey we're not trying to make money here. We're just trying to keep people paid and keep people safe So we're you know we're paying the staff that can even come to work right now so The community heard that absolutely rallied around us. You have described yourself in interviews as risk averse. It seems to me opening up. A small business is not at all risk averse as somebody who went into chatter and went down the drain completely. I know what can happen. how how do you decide to open? If you are indeed risk-averse what are you doing? Yeah you know I? I think it's sort of helps us sort of bring our a game every single day so even when we get on a list. Flake bone apetite. Something like that. We're just we're scared. That the BUZZER. Go Away tomorrow or that you know something else will open up on the block. That'll take customers away so obviously were crazy enough to open these restaurants but I think you know the risk averse part is is keeping us on our toes Into sort of always looking at everything turning over every stone so we know that we're sort of you know at the top of our game and on the flip side. Is WE SORT OF BANK? Every dollar that we make we're not quipped disburse funds to investors to ourselves on. We've been building a rainy day fund for years which has allowed us to pay our staff while you know. Some of the revenues are down while we are closed so Even crazy enough to get into this business you know. We're were scared enough to always be bank in money and to Just keep us on our tote slippers interested in this. Because I've got a daughter who only wanted to cook was never really interested in school. The only school she wanted to go to was cooking school. So I'll ask somebody else in a similar situation she went to Murray and you went to. Dds How does the DC who goes to a school like that? How do you end up in the restaurant? Business where you were you more drawn to the cooking side as my daughter was or the actual business side. I think at a young at the GDF. I was drawn to the eating five. I was pretty pretty bad student and didn't really have like a passion. I played sports and ate a Lotta chipotle and that was pretty much it I think would eventually drawn to this. Industry was just like seeing how restaurants can be the backbone of neighborhoods and communities. And you know I like the idea of going to a place that I could take my kids to and their kids can take their kids to just sort of like these restaurant that spanned generations. So that's like what initially drew me to it. And then I've just always loved food and in loved eating and sort of getting the lab and working on recipes and then finding my business partner fiance whose natural shaft who actually knows what she's doing sort of took it to the next level. Yeah I was. I think restaurants are really my experience notwithstanding I think restaurants are really cool. And they're a really cool thing to do. I don't think what people realize and you were talking about this before how many employees you have and how hard it is in a circumstance like this to keep your employees. Everybody small businesses really tried to do that. I'm not sure that box stores or television. Networks large businesses and. I don't want fault them I just don't think they can. Because they've got thousands of people that they have to worry about and so a lot of those people are furloughed. But you've you've done this. You've done this to keep your employees together. The decision is that in housetrained. Feel doing it. I wasn't a vision candidate. When this thing hit all of you advice we were getting was Ford cash for your resources. What people on unemployment and you know for years. We've been preaching. We're a family. Look at this as a career you can grow with us. So that idea of laying people off and sort of faint Hayworth family except for when things get tough everybody's hunkered down on their own just didn't sit right so the decision was in hard now. What was hard was being closed for two weeks and watching money only flow out of the account and done into the account and it was definitely scary but once we made the decision that hey we're gonna do everything we can to keep people paid then. It was just okay. Let's put our heads down and figure this out and he did an online fundraiser. Where we are selling people making classes the drive up some business. We've done a custom shoe with vans where anybody. Who BUYS those hands? The money goes towards their staff and then once we reopened it was about okay. Let's like operating a lean and smart way so we can be sort of have as much money flowing in as possible so the decision wasn't hard but it certainly been stressful. But you know we can all sleep at night knowing that were you know. We're either going to survive the thing or go down together so that I should mention the restaurants again. Call your mother and Timber Pizza. And you've been very fortunate. The product has been very well received. And you've had you've had people lined up in order to get in there is certainly you have to sort of acknowledge that that if and when there is a return to normalcy not all small businesses are going to make it There's an estimate that a third of the D. C. area bars could close and not only could they close. But there's GonNa be a different way. I would assume you thought about this. And you a different way that people approach going out and eating in and all of those things. What what are you thinking about as somebody who owns successful places and you probably going to be around for the long haul? How do you think physically it will change? How do you think psychologically it will change to go out? Yeah nine a were incredibly blessed that the you know the community has embraced us and come out the way they have like. We're only able to take people because people are supporting us. If there's no money obviously we couldn't be doing this so hey were incredibly fortunate And I just think it's GonNa be a carry out fast casual model for the shorten sort of metal term. I don't see people feel uncomfortable to go out into crowded restaurants and dine in you know. Restaurants are talking about okay. We'll spread the table down and But these dining restaurants give your only dining at thirty fifty percent capacity model. Just doesn't work so I think any sort of dining restaurant is going to have to change the model for the next year. They're going to have to go heavy. Carry Out Heavy delivery Even if some people feel comfortable eating out it's not going to be sort of Paktika Gills like it used to be and that's the way these restaurant models work right restaurants operate on razor thin margins. It it's a. It's a quantity Business and if you know you can only dine out. Sort of limited capacity of the model's broken so I think a I think you're right. I think a lot of businesses are going to go under unless there's some more government help either if that's from DC or the federal government And if that helps doesn't come I think a lot of restaurants are going to close and the ones that survive. I think they're the ones that are going to pivot. Do much more carry up and delivery. Let that bring something up. I mean when I was young and I went out to dinner. That was an occasion for me. That was something I look forward to. I dressed up for it even in my twenties and thirties. I thought that was a big deal. Then I got hooked on restaurants like the palm and I will use the word that my son has has written in the notes Senate. The right word allure. There is a tremendous allure. That restaurants have you go to the restaurant not only because the food is good but because the noise level is acceptable. The people in it make you feel good. The entire experience is something that is beyond just the food if we get to a apart with restaurants where people are nervous. And don't really WANNA stay in. There is the allure gone. And when you talk about the pivot what is that pivot? I mean I think certainly for the next you know nine to twelve months. I do think the law is going to be gone. It's not an enjoyable experience to go out and worry about having a mask on. Oh my gosh under the table next to me. So until there's some sort of vaccine or something I do think the alert has gone And the pivots just going to be. How do you survive in a world of carry out and delivery? And how can you let your product stand out? And how does your product tree? You know travel to home But absolutely I think the awards GONNA be gone for a while now. I do think when there is a vaccine or better treatment and people do think face to go out. I do think people are gonNA START EATING OUT IN DROVES. I think people are GonNa miss it and I think they're going to miss that community feeling so I don't think the models changed forever. I just think it's changed for the next year. While the smart scientists figure this thing out But certainly be alert for the next nine to twelve. Months is is is shot but I do think eventually this is gonNA come back. And I think it's GonNa come back sorta stronger than ever so you. Don't think the generation Louis people who are now say between the ages of eighteen and thirty will be scared off forever. You think they will. Do you think they will go back at some point? I truly believe and maybe I'm just delusional. Because I'm in this business and I wanna hope the best but I truly believe when there's either a vaccine or treatment or something but I think once this thing opens up and after it's been you know to four weeks and people are realizing there's You know not an uptick in cases and it is safe to go out. I do think we're going to have a short memory and people are GonNa WanNa get back to you know congregating restaurants and having group meals and sort of rubbing elbows in bars so maybe delusional and you know that's the human spirit has been too positive to really realize what's going on but I truly do believe wanted to safe to go out. People are GonNa have a short memory and people are going to get back to it. So I'll get you out of here on this you Danny or a success story. I mean you've got to really good places everybody lights and you've had national media and all of that and that's good and then something like this happens. Do you take a step back. Do you say you know I always wanted to be in a small business. I never expected this to happen. Do I go forward with all the vigour that I had when I opened the place or am I the victim of a cautionary tale? And do I think to myself? We'll do the best we can but this may not be a long term deal now this this is definitely the long-term deal for us Being how the community is rallying around us and supporting us. And you know seeing how we're taking care of one hundred and forty four staff and seeing how pizza bagels still bringing like a little bit of comfort and joy to in this crazy time has only solidified the fact that we're in the right industry Yeah it's GonNa be hard and yes. It's an insane industry to be in and this is absolutely rockets industry more than some others But we're we're definitely where we're supposed to be doing what we're supposed to be doing so You know we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA keep trucking other restaurants or call your mother timber pizza.

Dolphins Dumb Down Calls to Compete with Ship Noise

"This is science Americans. Sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Dodd Yata. The oceans are getting louder and coastal areas are some of the noisiest has in this underwater. Recording captured seventeen miles off the coast of ocean city, Maryland. Annoys could be a problem for marine meals, which like us us sound to communicate dislike if we're in a noisy, Bah, we have to shout to each other. They might have to do that to. Helen Bailey is a marine biologist at the university of Maryland center for environmental science, she and her colleagues recorded two months of underwater sounds in that same area off the coast of Maryland, they used automated software to fish out two hundred bottlenose dolphin whistles from the noise and visually compared the spectra grabs. Now, here's what normal whistle. Sounds like. But what they found was that dolphins dumbed down the complexity of their whistles and raise their pitch when they were competing with shipping noise. Like this. Which apparently helps but could also hurt their ability to communicate using simpler, Kohl's. Yes, there is a risk that then not communicating as much information as they would if it was quieter also for younger dolphins, they actually learn. These sounds from hearing other dolphins. So they're hearing this much simpler language, the results, then a few of those spectra grams or in the journal, biology letters, the survey site is the proposed future home of a windfarm which could mean lots of noise as the huge towers are installed till then it's the chronic roar of ships and boats that Bailey wants people to punter. I think people think about sin Tom's of set of the the emissions just like with. 'cause and I see what we need to think about is. That sound is also an admission.

WHO warns of 'second peak' in areas where COVID is declining.

"Coming up on five minute news. Who Warns of Second Peak in areas where COVID nineteen is declining Americans make low key memorial day tributes and Virgin Orbit First Launch Attempt fails? It's Tuesday may twenty six. I'm Anthony Davis countries where Corona Virus Infections are declining. Could still face an immediate second peak. If they let up too soon on measures to halt the outbreak the World Health Organization said the world is still in the middle of the first wave of the coronavirus outbreak. Who EMERGENCIES HEAD? Dr Mike Ryan told an online briefing noting that while Casey's on declining in many countries they are still increasing in central and South America South Asia and Africa Ryan said epidemics often come in waves which means that outbreaks could come back later this year in places where the first wave has subsided. That was also a chance that infection rates could rise again more quickly if measures to host the first wave were lifted too soon. He said countries in Europe and North America should continue to put in place the public health and social measures. The surveillance measures the testing measures and a comprehensive strategy to ensure that we continue on a downward trajectory and we don't have an immediate second peak many European countries and US states have taken steps in recent weeks to lift lockdown measures that curbed the spread of the disease but caused severe harm to economies. Meanwhile the WHO has suspended testing the malaria drug hydroxy chloroquine in Kovic nineteen patients. Due to safety concerns. Hydroxy chloroquine has been touted by Donald Trump and others as a possible treatment for the disease caused by the novel coronavirus the US president said he was taking the drug to help prevent infection. The W eight show has previously recommended against using hydroxy chloroquine to treat or prevent corona virus infections except as part of clinical trials. Talk to Mike. Ryan said the decision to suspend. Trials have been taken out of an abundance of caution. Americans paid a low key tribute to those who died serving in the US armed forces on Monday with many Memorial Day events canceled because of the corona virus epidemic that has killed nearly a hundred thousand people in the US alone. In some places scaled-down ceremonies were broadcast over the Internet as shutdowns to curb the spread of the virus. Damper on what is usually a day of flag-waving parades and crowds celebrating the unofficial start of the US summer spots that would be bustling on a normal memorial.

Hour 3 - Steve Sands of the Golf Channel, TV listings and one of the worst jokes from Jim ever

"Research every every stupid person. It is stupid. Country would agree where. A buck to we could squash this virus down and go back to some something resembling reality to grow up top that people. Welcome to the Darren Smith Show. This is. The one that brings us back soon am radio. Long Reign of King wants more. Now. Here's Darren. You. On xtra thirteen sixty. Believe it or not, if you are just getting with us and you're wondering what that ranting was about from earlier in the program believe this is true. That was real Brinson. He is the host of the pick six podcast. He covers the NFL for CBS sports. He's a frequent guest on the show. That was will brinson talking about Tom Brady. He was talking about Tom Brady. That was the question. Is What do you make of Brady and that was some of the answer that will Brinson gave us a little bit earlier today. Because I'm sure. Many of you are tuning in final hour. Extra Thirteen, sixty, FM one, zero, three, three, the iheartradio APP Steve. Sands is on hold these. What what show is this? This used to be a fun goofy sport show. The question was what is what is it about Tom Brady? That's making more angry. Angry these days, and that was part of the response from we'll Brinson. You could just feel the tension building up. He was on his way to a wedding. He didn't want to go to. He was stuck in a car with his wife and his kids. So all the best of the Brinson family the golf. Jim Just told you about it a little bit. We'll Gordon Phil, Mickelson. They are tied at twelve under par Sanders Shafi is at nine under par something to pay attention to the. The Golf is very good. The the golf has been very very good to watch I. Don't know how many people watched I know that you monitor and track and chart the sort of stuff. What is it relates to eyeballs on televisions, and it seems to have done well, so it's there and niece or some interesting names of local interest of course one due to well to because of where they were born including Zander and Phil Mickelson, so let's say hello, Steve Sands at the golf channel NBC. NBC Sports It's always a pleasure to have Steve Sands on the program, and I'm sure he can provide a little bit of insight into the world of the Golfer, when they're off the golf course, and that is obviously some of the story for the travelers this week. It wasn't just Brooks Kapka. There were other golfers now who have who have withdrawn from this tournament as a result to a positive test or exposure to covid nineteen Steve Sands. We appreciate it. Thank you very much is always. Plush by the way, so get the Tom Brady part of it, but wills right I mean to Josh People. Let's just do it were told to do. and. Get it over with as quickly as we can can. It doesn't seem like it's that hard. I mean just put on a mask and you can significantly reduce a rate of transmission. I don't know why this has become such a thing in this country yet. Steve Sands here we are. How are you doing? I'm doing fantastic man just. Waiting to get back to work matches. Osman let's go I'm embassy you that you get to work? Well listen, we make it happen each and every afternoon here. Where would you be now? Would you actually would you under normal circumstances? Would you have been in, Japan? Would you still be? Where would you be circumstances not in Japan yet we would have gone to the Olympics a couple of weeks, but this week. We do one LPGA event on the on NBC. It's a major. Championship is women's Pga Championship. That would have been in Philadelphia this week off next week for July, fourth. Head overdue England for the open. Championship and then straight from London to Tokyo for the Olympics, but both of those events aren't taking place so. We've got a wide open summer. We we have toddlers scheduled in a couple of weeks and the American Century Championship. so it was, it was going to be really busy summer. Between the Olympics the Open Championship Tahoe, and the women's PGA this week, and then later in the summer and August and early September. The BMW Championship in a Torch Championship but. You know those those events are on Tahoe is on a couple of weeks, but the open the Olympics, and the women's PJ this week or not. Interesting an unfortunate news earlier, this week is as it relates to the travelers championship, which is a tournament. Tell up in Connecticut there that we've had a handful of golfers who have had to withdraw as you know, you know. The Steve Sands our audience, just in case they need a refresher. Most notably would be brooks cap goes number four in the world. Two time US Open Champ. Pga Tournament Pj Championship so he's three time major winner notable guy. CADDY tested positive player out today. Danny McCarthy. I find it interesting. You know this is the sport Steve and this isn't to indict anybody I mean this is not i. don't think this is problematic on the torch, just the circumstances. This is just the world that we're living in, but across the board everybody who sits in chairs like where I said we had said at the beginning of this cough can. Can come back because golf is the physically distant Spore D- its nature to be physically distanced. You're out there, you WanNa, get away from your family. If you're not playing with with fans than it's not that big of a deal in this guy stands over here, and that guy over there and Blah Blah Blah and it's a very very controlled environment again nothing. No knock on the PGA, but man I mean it's. It's really I opening I think just speaks to how difficult life is going to be in the sports world that we see what's happening here on a small degree with golf, and we're not yet to the point where we're talking about team sports. Yes huffing and individuals Ford Dan because it's it's unlike the sports. Team Nature with collective bargaining agreements say like the NBA and the and the update before we came on Adam Silver and people in the NBA are now admitting that you know it. There's an outbreak in the Orlando area. It's going to be really difficult and perhaps even cancel. The plans of being able to have the NBA there. So and that's in a bubble where they are mandated to be inserted. Hotels are only playing in once huge complex with different courts. That type of thing in golf guys fly on their own. They come in at different times. They stay in different places. Houses condos apartments with friends. With family I'd hotels they. They move in and around the area they get takeout like you know like the rest of us that kind of thing. They're trying their best to be safe. They're trying to be responsible but then you double that number because it's the caddy, and then you have the tournament personnel, the the rules, officials, and all the PGA tour people. It's next to impossible to have a bubble golf. and. The tests are not because it's just rampantly spreading around the golf course, because guys are playing together caddies, walking and touching golf clubs and plastics Greeks and all those types of things. That's not what spreading it was spreading is that these guys are? Away from the golf course they can't just live in a bubble. None of us can now that things have opened up. So who knows where it all comes from there, but I do think that sports. Watches the PGA tour now watches Nascar right now and just sees as a litmus test as to how everything can move forward and right now there isn't a massive outbreak on the PJ. It's just kind of a slow drip of test here. Test there. Some big withdrawals as you mentioned with Books Capture Webb Simpson Graeme McDowell. But Hopefully It doesn't escalate into some type of major outbreak. That's going to halt tore because Darren. If the tour stops then I don't think it's coming back this season and I think the other sports are going to be in trouble as well. To that point Steve Sands Golf. Channel NBC sports joining us on extra thirteen sixty knows interesting to read a little bit about Brooks. Koepka, and the travel for golfers is always something interesting and it used to be. These guys would all. Play tournament back in the Ben Hogan days they'd all jump in their cars, and they'd caravan from this place to this place to this place, and you know you'd see all these golfers and their wives driving from point A. to point. B., it's much different, but brooks kept cassette. I told everybody on my team that we're on lockdown if they don't WanNa, do it. They don't have to be with US I told Claude I've got my chef. That's traveling with me I brought. Brought! My own gym brought my own free weights. I brought my own bands everything here that we've brought an ANA goes and I mean it. Just sorta speaks to how difficult this is. Because here's Brooks Koepka. Who has the financial means that other golfers don't have and he sorta is trying to create this bubble yet. His caddy ends up testing positive one out of three tests, and as a result. He's got a withdraw from this tournament this week. Generally speaking, I mean. Are Most. Golfers like Brooks kept coming. Do they control their own environments and keep it? Keep everybody there is close to them as possible or is that unique to him just because of who he is and how he runs while in this particular case with the tour coming back this being the third week the PGA doors returned. I think a lot more guys are doing what Brooks has been doing. Now you know a lot of the guys have the means to be able to fly privately. Bring their own weights. Bring their own coach. Bring their own catty rent. A place have a chef. Nobody Leaves Golf Course Condo Condo Golf course, and that's it. But you know the majority of players on the PGA tour. Don't have the ability. To have that type of bubble so? It's tough. Nobody knows where the Elliott, the caddy for Brooks kept got I I've text back and forth as ricky feels trades, symptomatic thank goodness for that, but Brooks did the right thing protecting everybody else in the field, protecting himself protecting your family protecting Claude swing coach, by you know withdrawing from the event, even though he tested negative because he's been in contact, which which he Elliott, even though we say symptomatic but. Ricky went to a funeral like ten days ago. In Orlando he may have gotten it there because the same patty for Graeme McDowell. Kenny also tested positive. That got graeme McDowell withdraw from this week's event. The two of them were at that funeral. Who knows if they got it there? Who knows what they were carrying before afterwards? None of that matters what matters is that the guys do the right thing and I think they gotta wake up. Call a couple of days ago from the Commissioner Jay Jay Monahan and the guys realized. We either tighten the screws on this thing, or they're gonNA have to shut down the tour for a while and again if they shut down the tour, you can't tell me there and you know this better than me. Roger Goodell, Gary Bettman. Rob Manfred Adam silver that they're not either a contact. With Jay Jay Monahan the commissioner, the PGA tour, or just watching and seeing how all evolves with golf coming back before those other sports so. It's a big spot for golf to be in to make sure they handle this directly and the guys know how responsible they have to be especially after these big withdrawals this week. So, is there anything about travelling than Steve? This is again. The uniqueness of golf is that not everybody can fly. Not Everybody's like Mikkelsen. You know could just fly himself literally all across the country. He flies himself. He doesn't have to even have a pilot if he doesn't want one. But? The majority of golfers aren't Phil and they aren't Brooks Kapka so. What does the PGA tour do like? Do they encourage them to to to try to fly private and partner up with other golfers to get around or do they just say? Hey, listen you get here. However, it is that you can get here. We'll test you if you're good to go well, we'll see on the first day. Well for right now during this cove nineteen period, the PGA tour, which is not do this on a regular basis, nor should they because the guys at the end of the day or individual contractors? they have set up. Charter flights from one event to the next. Majority of the guys are flying on those charter flights. But. That doesn't mean all of them are so mcelroy. Mickelson, like I said Nick Watney tested positive last week. and he flew himself because he wasn't at the previous tournament. So you're not gonNA. Go to an event and then get on the charter plane because you have to get to that anyway so. It's impossible. engulfs to be able to know where the guys are how they're traveling. It's just impossible. They're not being irresponsible. Two guys. They're just their being safe. It's just impossible to know how you catch this thing. It's so contagious and again unlike the NBA where the Lakers travel. When when anyone any team? When the Edmonton oilers travel, you know when He. was going to say San Diego chargers, but the LA charge of whatever whenever teams travel and other sports. Sorry, when other teams travel and other sports, they all are accounted for on those flights in those hotels at those team meals in golf. It's not like that one guy stays at the Hilton and other guy stays at the courtyard. Another guy saves at the four seasons of the guy stays at the Ritz and other guy stays at a condo. Another guy stays in a house that they've rented. You never know. Know! Idea where these guys are what the protocols are in place as best they can by having these charter flights available, and these recommended hotels available, but at the end of the day the tour, unlike the other Sports Team Sports with collective bargaining agreements on the PJ, or they don't have a union. They don't have a CPA they don't have anybody telling them what to do. They have recommendations, but they're not telling them exactly what to do. Because they can't. So it's a very very tough spot. It's a traveling circus. It always has been and always wealthy You just hope that the guys are being as careful as I know they are, but it doesn't mean anything you and I to be as careful as we could be, and still catch it. you know on the way out on the way outside going for a run it. You can catch it that way, so who knows. Yup absolutely you mentioned and alluded to something that Jay Monahan. The Tour Commissioner. Forgive me for having missed that. What was it that the that? He said to the players on tour? Well! He came out I went. There were three positive tests on tour in five days started with Nick Wabi last Friday. And then those two caddies on Tuesday, which may brooks kept and Graham McDowell. The players of those caddies withdraw then Webb. Simpson withdrew now today. Danny McCarthy true so when that happened on Tuesday Jay Monahan rightfully so I thought it was a great move, made himself available answered questions for say thirty forty minutes whatever it was, and just said listen. We're GONNA try to tighten the protocols, but at the end of the day is what J. said that I agree with. It's not easy to say it, but I agree with it. At the end of the day, we're going to have to learn to live with this. Protect the elderly protect those who were vulnerable. Be careful. Do you WANNA diligence, be vigilant. But we are going to have to learn to live with this and if we're not careful, things are gonNA shut down. Is Texas Florida? Everybody wants to go out? Have a good time. It's summer. The weather's Great Blah Blah Blah. You gotta be careful or else those three states that happened today or yesterday at decided to Kinda partially shut down or pull back a little bit, and what J. was saying to the tour guys? And to the media and the public was hey, if we don't tighten it up, we're GONNA have to shutdown, but right now it's kind of a one case in one case scenario and we're going to have to learn to live with it. We just need to be a little bit more careful than we happened the first couple of weeks and I think the guy's got that message. Apologies for the cynical nature of this question, but if this were PGA championship week or US Open Week. Do you think we'd be having a similar discussion? Oh No. These guys look make no mistake about it looks kept a wants to win every time he plays, he works incredibly hard. Grandma Gal, same thing Webb Simpson the same thing. These guys WANNA. Make sure that they are spotlessly healthy. When the PGA championship comes around First Week of August, there are some big events coming up from August in November they gonna play three major championships. The Ryder Cup right now is is like on life support. But right now it's still scheduled, so you have four events that are scheduled from August to November. These guys WanNa make sure that they maintain their health and and stay in in top form so. Yeah. I mean I hate to say one of them means more than the other because they all are big weeks. But no doubt there and if this was the PGA championship, you know it would be a lot different scenario. What about you get out there? Swinging it playing a little bit. Nine played golf But you know you being careful. Doing are saying you know. Wear a mask whenever we have to wear a mask to go into places. Sitting in a bar and closed bar drinking. You know or eating not a great idea right now. you know I'm right now. I'm in Ocean City Maryland, Dewey Beach Delaware kind of hanging out waiting to go out the TAHOE and a couple of weeks, and all these regular beach bars, and all these great grab houses all these spots that we normally go to. We're not going to. We're getting. Carry out or we're sitting outside. It's just not the same you just. You can't catch it, man, it'd be catch it. It's GonNa shut you down for a couple of weeks, and I'd rather be careful and see what happens. as things move forward, but I don't know what the right answer is. People do what they wish. It's free country, but. It'd be better if we all try to be just a little bit careful and cognizant those around us so that we can get past this quicker as opposed to in a slower fashion, because let me tell you man. This sucks. No sports, not being able to do the things you WanNa. Do it blows man. Aren't on ready for some normalcy about you. What are you doing? I've been sitting in my house. Every night. I don't really do much. I take a quick weekend trip. A couple of weekends backup the Santa Barbara. Drove or we stayed at a friend's house. We went to an outdoor winery where we you know. We sat outside and pretty much what you're saying, you know we. We sort of stayed away from everybody else, but for the most part I stay here I do this show. Maybe go for a drive in my jeep and get a little bit of Sun. And what else can you do? Not much man it just the whole thing blows I. Know Everybody wants the end result of the same. Let's get back to normal save as many lives as possible not if people get sick, but you're gonNA. Catch it If you're not careful, you're going to catch it. And even if you are, you might catch it, so let's try to all get through this together. But together doesn't seem to be a huge word any out of state and last year so. Let's see and you know what that blows to. Know Man. Don't get me started on a different show. We'll be rooting for Zander Shafi this weekend. Thank you very much Steve Sands. We appreciate it. We're glad to know that you're well like a good. Sandiego guy would is a really nice guy. Pretty Excel this weekend to do it out and fun. Thank you appreciate Steve Sands Channel and NBC sports. Thank you. SOx have blows just listen to. The conclusion that you can draw. A poll question who's in more need of cheering up? Steve Sands we'll Brinson. Yesterday Darren vans though at least. Yeah, he's. He's in a beautiful part of the world. He's there in ocean city Maryland which is great where you can go, you can have a mazing food terrific seafood. You can sit back if we know sounds like we do. He's probably enjoying. Some wine has family owns a great wine shop in the in the Beltway district in northern, the whole Maryland Washington DC area, so I'm sure that he's got some good libations, because that's a man who appreciates a good cocktail at a bar as much as the next guy. So, at least he's got that whereas I feel like will was driving towards his own peril. Driving towards his own demise was driving into the hurricane yeah. Steve was away from it watching it from a distance. But you know you think about that, and and you know you sort of have to admit yeah, I think I think. Maybe we were wrong. About Golf like get back out there. What's your guys problem because like you said you can't put them all on a plane control travel together. In this hotel. This guy stays in this hotel. Guy Rents a house. Then they all drive these courtesy cars around, and who knows who's been in these courtesy cars. And then they got to go get their own food for the golfers, but just in terms of the context of how is it that you're trying to stay safe and healthy during this? Yeah, I guess it's. Circuits always been that way. It's always been that way. Some of the stories about Hogan and Byron Nelson like they would just all I get in their cars and. Drive and they all pull over. When it was dark, the get some Z's and then the drive to the next place and they drive tournament to tournament tournament. Now get not. Everybody's living a life at tiger. Woods and Phil. What would happen if the if the League's this? This is how we're going to do the tour. Everyone's these are the rules we're going to do with the what the NBA does. Everyone's house in the same place these these are the testing procedures Corentin a by the way brooks. You can't bring your chef your masseuse your. Personal Circle isn't allowed. It's the the PJ we will provide the people living in a bubble everyone staying at the blink the Hilton Hotel well. There's no union, though so you know there's no players association so that it's not something that they can i. don't think they could impose it unilaterally, because that's you know there's there's more challenges to that I. Think all of us at least me realize with regards to golf because we sorta think these guys just out there. You're not around anybody. We've all played golf. What's the big deal, but? I hadn't. Hadn't spend too much time thinking about. You and then this guy, flies. And then this guy comes in from this place, and this person's got to go out to the store, and there's a lot of the first conversation we had with zander softly. He was like in the middle seat on the South Southwest Airlines coming back. A little bit different. What applies to fill me or anybody else not necessarily apply to the wonder Phil Sandra Rod. Let me I'm really do wonder that if Those back. Feels like I'm GonNA pilot this thing the back. I wonder if he did just in an attempt to say, Hey, listen I. don't want you getting on an American Airlines and he very nice now. ZANDER might be at a certain point where he could fly. Private. Again, these are such first world I Just in Tex- context of sports virus isn't stop though in First Class. She's not curtain there, but and you still have to go through TSA. Still have to go into a terminal. You still have to go into a restaurant. You know you still have to do a bunch of different things especially if you're trying to get from San Diego Hartford, that's not easy. That requires at least stop I wonder feels like hey, come with me or how these charters thing. Where does that work? Because guys. I mean we'll make one stop in Florida and one stop in Arizona. Sans. He's the best he is sucks. Blows. We'll be back after this sixteen FM one of three three. Man Marty. What do you think working five days in one week? Feeling sauce to it. Now so the put some coffee on. Thankfully, the wife just got home from a trip. Bunch of wine some goodies. Yes, she had a wine event up in Los Angeles. Not all the wine was finish. She came up with a bunch of open bottles. What heritable guess you gets to take some home tonight on a Friday who's that? I heart radio created playlists perfect for any mood activity your moment in your life, thousands of Iheart playlists perfect for your moment playlist for working out cooking dinner sleeping, setting the mood for a perfect night in your music, your stations, your podcasts always free. That's the IHEART radio APP. Just looking over some of our work as an HOA board last night to make some. Some pretty important decisions really about facial coverings. Yes, see, this isn't just me. Ranting about masks. As an HOA board member we had to. We are in a position now where we are legally obligated. Requiring people to wear masks in our structure. So I am well-versed. Some stuff going on yesterday and today I mean a lot of times. There's no way you're sidewalk. I won't have my mouth gone, but I woke up on the sidewalk. Why on the steps to? Coming is get fined for that because that is common area in our space. It of my visit, but anybody could walk up the steps. As far as getting to the gate. That's when it becomes your property. Anybody anybody could walk up your steps. That's all. WHY WOULD YOU WANNA? Flaunt these? What would you? What would you want to skirt these roles? I'm not sure scripted rules. I'm just saying that that would make any sense penalized for somebody. If they're on the outskirts on the outside. Looking in sidewalk is fine. But once you're on our property line we. had. Were to have a post show, drink and on our deck we can find. There door mass. That's not a common. Were going to recap. The sadness, we'll brinson versus the sadness of. Of Sands today that we could do it. In the comfort of your patio with dusk patio are fine. I'll tell you this. I'm not going anywhere this weekend. Like I've been I've been okay. Here or there always wearing a mask. I'm not going anywhere man i. just think just going stay. I just stay home six number Texan it should be called how about the twenty twenty summer baseball championship like in the winter gets number, one overall pick and twenty twenty one see. I don't know that that would be motivational for players nine. That's true. What are they? They don't want. What do they care? League paid twenty million dollar increase the team payroll for twenty twenty. One League Championship. Road! Three road series turned into three home series for twenty twenty one now you're talking about the free agents there instead of having to play three road trip. She turned us into three home series I. Like where you're going with it. I don't know about implementing these specific rewards. But I like where you're going, and if you're again, it's just SORTA here babbling about this at least one other texter and maybe Mardi. Halfway agrees with me, but yeah I. I think that those would be good incentives. I think those would be really good incentives I mean I think the idea of incentivising play would be a good idea. It'd a very good idea. It's interesting about travel. We were just talking. Mardi was just saying that. The the European Union has decided that. Who is it Russia Brazil and the United? States. Red also, though if you do want to travel, there are certain places that you can travel to where you would get a Cova test as soon as you landed. You can fly to Iceland for whatever reason has become a very popular thing to do for Americans who are traveling to Europe as they spent a night in. Reykjavik I believe it's pronounced. Okay, and if you land there for two hundred bucks, they will give you a cova test now. If you don't want the Tash, you gotta get quarantine. You can't just stack and they give you results. Amazingly they can get. You results according to them in a matter of hours. Same thing not days. Zooming in Vienna and the you could do it. You could spend a couple of hundred bucks. They test you right there. They put you in an area and then for a couple hundred bucks, and if you pass what you're allowed to go out in the into the. Darren is is, is there a standardized test? Is there as far as we know like student through normally no. Wonder how they do it. I think it'd be worth looking into the Monitor. Yes right meat thermometer in your armpit. Even Hawaii, so Hawaii had a mandatory quarantine for anybody that was going right right now. If you break it, you're arrested. They were rescued going to jail. This was this. This has been the last two nights on Cobra. However Hawaii said starting August I i. believe it is I think it's August I for your planning purposes really that if you have a note that says that you. Have had a negative test within seventy two hours of going to Hawaii. They will let you go onto the beaches in the water and the restaurants, or whatever and newt yeah, but. Not. From your mom right, but like from like a doctor. You cannot write a note for me. No okay. No doesn't work. Know Brian. Long can't write you a note and say hey. Morty does not have covid nineteen. We know because we stuck in meat. Thermometer your armpit. I, said armpit. Alaska has started testing people out there airport now. The problem with Alaska's. You gotta wait like three days. See this is the difference here in Alaska. You GotTa wait to three days to get the results in Vienna. It's a couple of hours. What's come on here? I mean what's going on here. I don't know so. That's happening in Alaska that if you WANNA, go there, but what if your trip seven days you guys been three of them potentially quarantine until you get your your results, and then whereas someplace else you can do this in a matter now is. So bad at this. Who knows but I'm guessing. You and Jack head further detail on the KOGO show, but. How do they know it's a real note like? If I'm going to Hawaii and I have a note I mean there has to be some sort of Universal Form that you have to so things militarized probably, have you? How do you make sure that's? That's a good question? I don't I. Don't know the answer them, but yes, I would agree. To avoid. Forgeries for people that just want to. Notes. Go, eat food and just get out of here for a couple of days and avoid jail time for going to the beach. But yeah. I mean Alaska now. I think Alaska. International has become one of the first airports in this country. That will test you when you land. Except that comes with a two three day quarantine, so do three days. It's not to s not terrible. You're right. It's not terrible, however, though, again, compared to Vienna compared to Iceland. Is it that they're doing the stuff in a couple of hours. Do I need to do some reading this weekend and get into what sort of testing? They're doing very interesting. Well. Sir just distracted by a text message. Iceland tourism. Company Arctic Adventures will cover the cost of the mandatory tests for travelers in the country. Really Yeah Yeah. Well listen. There's nothing stopping us from doing the show from Ireland. Iceland right this. Is GonNa Live Work Right? Can we go? What are we need? We need to either not. I, okay, go sit in the hot spring. RIGHT YEAH! What's the deal. Back after this excellent agreed. All right final segment for our week. Exhausting Five Day workweek. It's just a I. Don't know how you people do it and they'd plans after your nap during a catch up. big plans now. No Plan goanywhere. Maybe to the patio yeah. It'd be nice. Walk out to the patio. We have a friend who were cat sitting for Michael up to her place to spend time with her cat, too. She's got a fifth. Floor views so we might go up there just to nine scenerios. Very nice! Since. We had such outstanding scenery. Europe place for the last couple of days watching all the shirtless people run by. Brock socks various stages of undress. Yeah, luckily on lock on over there. I just. I want I want everybody to know that I spared you a couple of politically motivated questions today. I don't WANNA say politically motivated politically charged questions. Today thought about asking Brinson one question about the the franchise name for the team that plays professional football in Washington DC and then I about asking Steve Sands about the golf tournament. The Children Augusta. But they were so good on covert I said. Let's just let's not mix these two. Yeah, we'll charge topics today. Let's let's steer clear of that. And I also steered clear to break those up Oregon and Oregon state renaming its rivalry. I'm wanted always pushes back and resist the whole lago man pc culture. It's ruining who we are the. SORTA like dumb person speak. It really is. It's IT'S SORTA single-story. evolutions a bad thing. I don't know that enlightenment or inclusion is a bad thing I'm not so sure about this. I mean this is a rivalry that's been going back since the late eighteen hundreds Oregon versus Oregon state every year they play. They call at the civil war. They call it the civil war because it's representative of confederates and the Union but. I guess. They decided that they're going to change the name of it now you WanNa talk about a real rivalry in sports. Yes, that is based in civil war history. That would be Kansas versus Missouri. Those were two places to states that were were border states, complete opposite sides of the civil war and their sports rivalry has some elements that as well, but yeah listen. There have been other civil wars were pretty myopic as Americans. There have been other civil wars around the world I. Don't know I I mean. I'm, not GONNA lose a sleep over this, but. I'm not so sure that this isn't one where you. Hey! PC culture running amok guy, can it? I think that there's. Anyhow. Let's find out what's on television tonight. Unless. You feel passionately about that. I mean again I thought like. There's a time for evolving on an overreaction. Do ahead and evaluate. Now's a good time. Could've. It's the time and I. Don't think it just like a just a quick gut. Check reaction. I'm sure there's been some thought. Put into it, and there's a reason why that I have not even touched the surface on, but. I also think that there's a difference though between some colloquial nickname, and you know the the very very rightful desire to pull down statues of Robert he lays. Right. Now like I said I'm not, GONNA LOSE ANY SLEEP FOR Steve Sands. And for next time we'll set somebody else up at these traps. TV lessons tonight NBA schedule released four PM don't forget the pre game three thirty. Fugitive tonight. We're out of time, sent me to the ER. APM, on A motorcycle escapade leads to a trip to the ER careful now. Do you think that motorcycles moving? Or was it parked. Beverly Hills Cop. Pm River Monsters Kevin Hart seriously funny. Ten PM on Comedy Central Jim. What's your final joke for the week? What do you call Wiener dog in the morning? Breakfast sausage. The funny I'm not sure I get it. I mean that's why sort of sat here and I didn't really know what to do. I was I was partially paralyzed. What do you call a breakfast source? I thought he was going to go mail. Recall Wiener Sausage in the morning. What do you call? Wiener Dog Wiener dog well. What do you call a Weiner dog in the morning breakfast sausage? A breakfast. Actually it makes less sense now. Have more time to think about it, not funny. I thought for sure this is going to be like A. Joke. Wow. It's okay. I don't know I. Mean I gotTa? Admit I i. sort of laugh just because I didn't really get it, but. You get it now. Does anybody get it. Jim Do you get the loose cannons get not. It's fine. Good job, everybody. See a little later on tonight on Kogo have a great weekend. Don't worry everybody. We're going to relax this weekend and get back to our a four day workweek next week. So, enjoy your weekend.

So Am I, and here's Charlie Kirk Charlie welcomed the program great. Move. Back, Eric God bless you. We're GONNA, have some fun and God bless you listen over the weekend I. got a package in the mail from Ryan Health and bind runs the falkirk centers. Liberty. Center and and look what he sent me. I don't know if anybody if you're watching on video I'm holding up a handsome Liberty University mug. It's got a lovely core base. I demand that in most of my mugs and ensure in Charlie and Ryan they they they they took the trouble, Gimme that. But Anyway, look you and I we have so much to talk about I'll just. Shut up as quickly as possible and ask you my friend the news over the weekend. has continued to be troubling and more than troubling so. What is your take? Well, especially on Friday great to be here, Eric. We saw the Supreme Court come with the very puzzling decision the Bush appointee, John Roberts as really been playing into his caricature lately of siding with the most radical elements of the United States. Supreme. Court. And for those that don't know on Friday evening. You know it's funny how they always do this on Friday evening to try to quell the rebellion of anyone that extra might be paying attention. Calvary Chapel in LAS on. Las Vegas. Sued asking why can casinos and restaurants have fifty or more people, but churches cannot pretty reasonable complaints. The Supreme Court. Then decided five four with Roberts citing with Briar Kagan Sotomayor and Ginsburg. Saying that, you know what? It's okay to discriminate against churches even though casinos and restaurants. Marijuana dispensaries in strip clubs can have fifty or more people gorsuch. Hang on now, you say discriminate against churches and you're speaking. On some level hyperbolic, even though I agree with what you just said and others that the point is. They don't seem to explain how it is not discrimination. Saying that this many people can go into these establishments and gamble and so forth. But Churches, no, only fifty people, and this is Nevada we can talk about other states and I'd like minute. But how is it possible that somebody like Roberts? WHO's not a? He's not anti constitutionalist. How how do you suppose he rationalizes this in his mind? That's I guess my question, what is his wha? What is he doing legally and in his mind that he thinks it's correct. So I'll answer that, but I'll tell you how gorsuch descended, which was brilliant. So, Roberts at least in my interpretation of the opinion, he says churches different because people are more packed together. It's a gathering for a couple hours. And, it wasn't just churches, synagogues, mosques. He said, this is a mass gathering protocol and that the state of Nevada does have the. Ability to do that, I think it's nonsense I. Mean this idea that you're not going to get close together with. When you're going to go to a marijuana dispensary or to a restaurant or to a casino is just pretty pretty outrageous. Now gorsuch dissented from where Roberts would have his opinion. and. Gorsuch said, this is not even a question. This is the most simple case that we have seen recently. I mean I'm paraphrasing. But this is basically the language that he used and he said that the First Amendment shouldn't apply at Caesar's Palace but not at Calvary Chapel Las Vegas, I was a great final line in his dissenting opinion and Gorsuch went out of his way to also mentioned synagogues and mosques. Now now, Eric. What is really concerning for me, is that the constitution more and more seems kind of a suggestion document to the United States, supreme, court, no longer the actual. Actual document that they have to defend and they have to interpret. Now, it's just kind of like a reference point. All we might. We might consider it and some of our ruling I I. I agree with you. I. Went to the same sort of mental gymnastics this weekend, Eric. Because I said well, John Roberts. He's correctly some things. He's not a dummy. How how can you come to this decision? I? Mean my Orrin Kagan I, get that there were so Ian Eva, Peron types, right? Like they. They got lost in the Argentinian revolution and somehow found themselves on the Supreme Court. But John Roberts I, mean, he was Bush appointee supposedly one of us and he's not. He. He came up with a very bizarre ruling here and I think dangerous I. Think he I think he really betrayed our country for what he did here because here's what's happening Eric. Pastor rob? McCoy pastor. Jack. hibs. The real fighters out there. They have now had increased amount of governmental. Overreaching scrutiny this last weekend. So you're right. It does. Decision was November about California. That's right. But now it's a national application of it because the Supreme Court ruled on it. Right. So. Now, other churches across the country that were reopening safely and securely are now feeling the pain and they're being targeted because of this outrageous decision. Well I guess I want is a few things that pop into my mind as you talk about this I preached. In Ocean City New Jersey a couple of weekends ago, and they have a an auditorium that seats one thousand people, and so they said we can have Theoretically. Two hundred people in here would be safe social distancing. But Governor Murphy has said only one hundred people. It's the Max in other words. It doesn't matter if the Church Auditorium could hold a thousand or five hundred if if it's it's either twenty percent of what it could hold or one hundred people, whichever is less. So we ended up having the service outdoors and I don't know there's probably a hundred and eighty people or something like that. But. The reason you and I are annoyed by this and many Americans by this is there seems to be. a level of animus toward religion. There also seems to be a a level of subjectivity in other words. If everybody can sort of see the point, you say, well, we don't like it, but we get it. But, it does seem that the rulings have fallen unfairly against charges, and that's why folks like a rob. McCoy and Jack Hibs, and now John Macarthur are I think Aurora's aerobically dissenting? I completely agree and Eric Look I. I. wanted to give some of these people at least a temporary benefit of the doubt I really did. But when when we have to tolerate as a society fifty-six nights of arson and terrorism in Portland or in Chicago where they have thousands of people congregating at once and you're telling me that fifty one people are violating the law if they gather in Las Vegas to go take communion or to go take a holy sacrament I. Mean, this is outrageous eric, and what was really happened is that the Supreme Court basically said church is not essential. That is what happened here, not every member on the. The Supreme, court? who was five four and their reasoning is backwards and incorrect. But I think that the the default position of our government Eric should be, we should have to go to extreme lengths to shut down religious services I, think one of the reasons we are seeing so much unrest this because people have not been able to go to church, people haven't been able to connect to the moral center. I. Am actually against this kind of digitalization of church services, call me old school I actually like being able to dress up, go to a church feel as if I'm entering into a house of God have complete and total mind. Kind of shaping experience, where is he just Kinda turn on your television at ten? Am on a Sunday morning. I don't feel that same sort of connection and you have millions of people that agree with me by the way, and you're and people wonder why we kind of have this. This identity crisis is a country I. I don't think it's unfair to say it's because we've disallowed church services and a lot of states. The church has always been the moral center against resilient French Revolution Tactics always, and all of a sudden you get rid of that. We wonder, well, why do we have a French revolution happening? Well, maybe it's because we don't have church happening anymore and wow, that is. Wonderful Connection I expect no less from you Charlie Kirk. Folks I'm talking to Charlie, Kirk, he's with the Falkirk Center at Liberty University and Hey I also the falkirk center at Liberty. University, I. Love It. Naturally, you just talked about a whole bunch of things that raise many issues, for example, if you. Will permit me for a second I think. Let's talk about the what's called star. A decisive right starring decisive refers in Latin to the idea that when the Supreme Court makes a ruling. Future Supreme, court rulings need or should take that into consideration rather than willy, nilly. Switch from left to right rights elect from this tobacco that none of us that the they wanNA. Here's the key they want to continue to inspire confidence in the institution of, did you digital brains because one of the things that makes democracy work is that the people we the people have generally speaking confidence and trust in the institutions of government doesn't mean that sometimes it doesn't go sideways or sometimes, it doesn't get difficult, but generally speaking, we're not cynical what Roberts has done recently and what other rulings have done. Recently, what's been happening the country generally reasonably is things seemed to have gotten. So nakedly partisan. So nakedly political and in the case of these judicial. Decisions. So subjective that people begin to back up, begin to lose confidence, for example, in the Supreme Court and a treat it like any other political entity ins talk about conservative justices and liberal justices, and you think it should not be that way in other words. They ought to be very, very careful about rattling the populace because in nineteen seventy-three, for example, when Roe v Wade out. Or when same sex marriage was effectively shoved down our throat. The people feel like wait a minute whether I agree with the decision or don't, we haven't really been able to argue this through in a healthy way, and so at that point when the Supreme Court makes decision just as with obamacare. When you have the legislature, just throw down this law people feel disenfranchised and that undermines every kind of freedom. It has nothing to do with left or right. You just undermines freedom. and. It's very important point Eric and the founders didn't intend for this. But the Supreme Court actually has almost super governmental power if they so choose to use it actually more so than the legislative and the executive. So we learn early on that, there's checks and balances. Right, and that's true. The only check that we have on the supreme. Court is future, nominees, and impeaching a Supreme Court justice. If the Supreme Court decides to make their own law which they have in recent years, what's are checked against that very little early, especially with a broken congress and a legislature that is heavily. Heavily divided. So in the gay marriage decision, for example, where Anthony Kennedy wrongly decided just to be to overturn over I, Think Twenty eight state legislatures that held up that marriage is a teammate, one man and one woman, all of a sudden, the supreme. Court made the law and what was our check nothing, and so that's why we have. We have been taught that all the branches of government are equal and that's that's correct in a theoretical sense. But in a practical sense, the Supreme Court has actually the most powerful position of government because what's our check against? It's very little. I mean, if Donald Trump decides to put up a Goya beans tweet, they're going to impeach him for violating the Amal emoluments clause, right I, mean the the the the the legislative and executive are so checking each other every single day. The only check we have is again as impeaching one of these justice, which will not happen. and. So the point is this though is that, yes, this is how you get people that feel as if the government doesn't represent them, I mean when you hear people complain about the ruling class, go look at those nine people in black robes that are supposed to be impartial and what you have seen though is a radical movement. This is nothing new, it's just grown and they've multiplied. Multiplied, of people that have gone to the United States Supreme Court and decided that this is a wonderful workshop to be able to destroy America. This is this is our ultimate opportunity who cares if I have to be justice is blind or try to be an interpreter, the law? No, I mean now, then you have John Roberts for whatever reason continually trying to pander to the Sotomayor. Kagan. Dinh's Berg Brier wing of the court where Clarence Thomas Gorsuch cavern on the Lido, generally do the right thing. CAVENAUGH has been amazing the way it's amazing how the two most principal people on the court or the people that they try to destroy. That's a different topic for a different time I want to shift to something even less pleasant I'd like to talk about the rioting that's happening sample in Portland. I am aghast frankly because what it seems to me is happening and is no longer me or rioting never forget about peaceful demonstrations that that's a joke, but there's rioting and there's rioting and then there is How do we put it armed organized rebellion against the citizens of the United States. We we have ANTIFA and others who are obviously plotting in the way that military's plot, not the ways mobs behave, but in the way that a military. Military's plot, and they have supply chains and things, and obviously the media are not reporting on this. Well, you're exactly right I. Mean, it's so Orwellian, the way the media's reporting on it actually, and I mean I been rereading nineteen eighty-four and I feel like I'm reading the La Times in real time I. Really do I mean it's I. I. Don't feel as if this thing was written in nineteen fifties by a con-, you know kind of meandering socialist in the United. Kingdom. I feel like this is a columnist for the New York Times The New York Times article this. This last weekend that said the real threat and Portland is Donald Trump standing army as like this is so in double, think this is the only way. I could describe it or doublespeak, and so look we have armed insurrection happening in our country right now and for fifty six, fifty, seven days straight and Portland and Seattle? Even the local police called a riot. The left is perfectly okay with defending it, and of course, we're supposed to believe this is all just because of the wrongful murder of George. Floyd which is outrageous and it's not true these people that are bitter. Or. The Not True Charlie don't be kind. It s a creation of the memory. Lloyd and it's a desecration of. Of anyone who was ill treated at the hands of police. This has so little to do with that that it should. Be Mendome spite your audience, let me explain to your audience how doublespeak works or double think works and I think it's really helpful. So let's pretend Eric, you're eating and you're eating cookies I, come up to eric comedy cookies. You tweet a Tan, you say white three. That's a lie. Let's say I come up to you and your eating cookies I say, Hey, Eric. How many cookies did you eat cooked all your face? I, didn't any cookies you did. Not, see her eating the cookies I promise you're eating the cooked. You ate all the cookies. It's the opposite of the truth, and that's what's happening. Now, where it's even more sinister than ally, it's a complete reflection and deflection back to the actual accuser. Ahead I would. No. I was just GonNa say exactly what you said in in a different way because this point you're making is really because Americans my friend Larry Taunton wrote a piece and he talks about the Saul Alinsky tactics. But with this is I I woke up to this must have been nineteen one. I was taking a screenwriting course in Hollywood by famous Roberts Mickey and as he talked about story and the structure of narrative, he says. There's good. And then there is evil, but there's something even worse than evil. It is evil masquerading as good. In other words, a deeper level of evil is evil masquerading as good on some level. You could argue that's what every lie is. It pretends to be the truth, but there is a level of this happening now and you just referred to it as well. Ian. And I think most Americans aren't used to it in other words. It's. Cynicism in of all, that's freaky. Well, and so orwell warned against this, and some of his later lectures where he said the human psyche actually isn't prepared for double-speak where it's actually. So incredibly different than how we process information, it actually creates you to be subservient. So for example, when you go up and you're like, wow, maybe they should stop looting and they say shut up racist. No, no, no. Can you please stop burning down the city like no shut races. We don't even know how to deal with that, and we actually just kind of either walk away or we kind of take the knee metaphorically or literally, and it's so incredibly effective because we we we as decent human beings who actually wants you civil society and a stable country place to build a family. We look at this and we dare question it right and those that aren't trained enabled the spotted out. I can understand why certain people have remained very silent. I can understand in certain sense why people are so confused and why and you're exactly right just in a human psychological analysis, we are not prepared. We are not equipped. That's the best term equipped to be able to confront this Orwellian approach where I have to read the New, York, Times that it's Donald Trump. That is causing the chaos in Portland right. It's it's hard and I think it's why it's worth are taking the time to talk about it. The term used by the COGNOSCENTI, the chattering classes who always invent new terms and most Americans like my parents and stuff that don't they get this. But the term gas lighting for last year's. People on twitter and stuff talk about gas lighting that comes from a movie in the forties starring Ingrid Bergman and Joseph Cotten. One of the greatest movies ever gaslight in which the husband of Ingrid Bergman she he begins to play head games with her and he will hide something and then accused her of being forgetful USO forgetful Bulla You know he begins to plant these ideas and a drive her insane. He's gas lighting we use that. That term today. That is what is happening when I. watched words ample somebody like touch rumor pontificating foolishly they. They are saying precisely the opposite. But in such a way that it seems absolutely true and I honestly Charlie, what you're talking about I mean you've read these Orwell essays which have not read, but the human mind really needs to understand what is happening and to begin to a to understand that if you do not see what is happening. You're powerless against it. It you so so we're in a new were in a new realm Right now I think we've only got a twenty seconds please respond and we'll come back. It's a new realm. Have to train people to be equipped to fight it, and they are employing eighty, four, double speak and. It is it is a distortion world we live in literally and figuratively. I I, WANNA. Say folks that it's important that you send these videos. If you get them as videos, most people listen on the radio, but we're putting everything now on Youtube, please go to my youtube channel, subscribe to it. It's the Eric Metaxas show on Youtube. Please subscribe please these videos to people. We need to get the message out. We'll be right back with Charlie. WHO's your wireless provider at and T. Verizon t mobile one if I told you that pure talk, USA use the exact same network as all those carrier, same towers, same exact coverage. But literally costs you half I. I didn't believe this at first when I start talking to the people. A pure talk I said, this is too good to be true. But. It's actually real. So let me tell you Sarah from Abilene Texas, the services. Amazing. Love. The price speed is quick. The reception is perfect. Laurie from Menasheh Wisconsin. I switched from one of the major cell service carriers on the recommendation of a competing talk show host and I'm paying way less receiving equally good service. Thanks. Pure Talk I. couldn't be happier. Here's what you do switching so easy you can keep your own phone and they'll send you a new SIM card. She can get the same great service you currently have. But at half the price listen to this unlimited talk tax two gigs of data for just twenty dollars a month the average person is saving four hundred dollars. You're talking about a middle class tax cut four, hundred dollars year. So why is it so much cheaper than a t and T for is t T mobile, no overhead, no retail stores, no billion dollar, a year ad campaigns. No value adds to your contract that you end up paying for, and you only pay for the data. You need their customer services right here in the united, states their CEO's a US veteran. He loves his country and he knows what it means to sacrifice for. America. Here's a deal unlimited talk plus two gigs of data for just twenty dollars a month I checked this service out. They are terrific. So right now to do is take out your mobile phone dial pound two fifty and say keyword, Charlie. Kirk. That's pound two, Fifty, eight of keyword traffic. When you do, you'll save fifty percent off your first month. Folks talking to Charlie, Kirk? Who is with? Liberty University's Falkirk, center of course I too, and with the Falkirk Center Liberty University. I'm a senior fellow. Are there any junior fellows? Charlie? We're trying to train some. Let's just put it this way that if there was a title that was higher than yours than it wouldn't be a true center around faith in Liberty. All right. Okay. Well, then I will I will accept that I want to talk again about what's happening Portland there's a lot of confusion about what the federal government ought not to judge. Napolitano has said very clearly that he considers trump sending federal. Troops marshalls and as unconstitutional. Why do you suppose somebody like Judge Napolitano would be saying that I don't know I. Know Him sets very perplexing and puzzling. He's issued some perplexing statements in the last year. I. I'm beginning to lose confidence in him. That that doesn't sound right. But look I mean first of all, there is an insurrection act of eighteen, seven that any president can sign and was used against the whiskey rebellion was used many other times goes eighteen. Oh, seven. Anyway. The point is that there is an insurrection act on the books that can be used secondly I mean. This is this is the H, H.W. Bush giant ninety one, the Rodney King riots, and actually quelled the rebellion. Very nice. Very effectively and in Los. Angeles and I guess my question suggested Apollo Tano is was was Dwight D, Eisenhower acting in his constitutional authority to send federal troops into little, rock. Arkansas to force. You know not just the basically forced the bitter segregationist and racist to allow. Allow black children to go to school the Little Rock nine. A Republican Dwight D Eisenhower. Isn't that the question right and unless you and I speaking as conservatives, we do not like the federal government overreach. We believed states right. So we don't take this lightly, but there is a time and it seems to me when people are being murdered a when you have a level of. Ignorance or malfeasance or partisanship locally whether on the state level or on a city level. The government, the federal government has A. An obligation to step in large are being put at risk and local leaders don't care I. Mean when lynchings happened in the south when Bull Connor acted in the way he did in the south. To meet none of us would have a problem because you're dealing with constitutional rights, Liberty Life, and the pursuit of happiness. I mean I, guess, the Democrats are getting back to their roots of George Wallace, right? I mean. That's basically where we're at right now we're George Wallace Star, stared down federal troops and said, you will not segregate. You'll not desegregate the American south. A Democrat Democrat today which really perplexing Eric. Though, and I think you would agree that this is how the Democrats hide behind our own doctrine of states' rights when it fits their own agenda. But when they and so they don't actually believe in states' rights. I. Mean They. They believe in hiding behind it in our own little mini city states called California, Seattle Portland and New York City when they wanted to defy federal. Federal immigration law when they want to create their own little sanctuary areas absent of the federal rule of law. But I guess the question here is wh. Why would it be unconstitutional if there's already a along the books that would allow it, but let sidestepped seconds I. think that's just a foolish statement that's perfectly constitutional. The question is, is it right for trump to do and the answer is, of course it is. And some people say, well, this is good for Republicans. The more that our cities burn up like the poll, the pollsters I think that whole take it. So ridiculously outrageous that you're going to sit idly by while we have the arson and terror in our country and do nothing. The president is right to deploy these kind of federal resources and look we know this Eric, that problems that are not confronted multiply. We saw what happened at the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee in Chicago. In the late nineteen sixties I. Believe it was either nineteen, sixty, nine, hundred, nineteen, sixty, eight, and a Democratic Mayor David. Crackdown big time, and it could have gone could could've burned the whole city though it really could and so. So look, I'm of the I have no tolerance for violent outrage and I think that even some conservative media, it gets this wrong I'm read I've been reading some of the stuff over the weekend. They say protests continue for the fifty six day and Portland I. You know what? A protest, this kind of what we did during the lockdown where we didn't burn anything. We cleaned up after ourselves and we got a permit and we were very respectful and they still brought out the Praetorian Guard to try to enforce measures against us when we protested the lockdowns. Insurrection is when you use weapons and violence and physical retribution to try to overtake a government. That's what's happening Portland and Seattle. Well when when we spoke earlier about gas lighting about the newspeak of war, well it seems to me. You know to put on forty in terms and Freud, but it's kind of projection. Right? Whatever it is that I'm in fact doing I accuse you of doing and there's something I say it's demonic right? Because it's it's worse than. It's it's. A. It's a very cynical lie, and so the left has for the last fifty and sixty and more years portrayed conservatives as Jack booted thugs, right and in reality they have been the ones who've been the jack booted thugs and they they've done this. So effectively in the media fifty years, that's why I always talk about culture and the media is that we we are way behind in being able to portray the reality of what's been happening in America, but they do this time and time again. So that if that if if a conservative or pro-trump person sneezes, they portrayed as a certain way, and if folks on their side are using lasers to blind federal officers. That's just part of the way. And and could someone explain or at least give me one example of a organized conservative. Let's say activity that ever resulted in physical retribution ever. That's the point. That's exactly the point it. It doesn't happen. But that Specter is raised over and over again whether they have to go back to lynchings in the south, which you know even the call those conservative is gets ridiculous. We know they were racist, but we also know that other Democratic Party was at the vent in the vanguard of that kind of stuff. So we're going to go to another break. We'll be right back with Charlie. Kirk, don't go. Charlie got to ask you about education. A lot of people over this past weekend as the chaos has continued and the violence has continued, they've begun to point the finger at education over fifty years We have effectively indoctrinated young people with a world view that is more pro fidel. Castro more pro Soviet Union more pro conservative Sorry. A Communist Party of China than it is pro American along the founders vision. You think that there's any anything that this. President, or that the Senate can do because you referenced Orwell writing longtime ago. Many decades ago, fifty. You've you. You have to know, of course that, CS Lewis, wrote very similar things in the book. The abolition of Man. He talks about this. He wrote this stuff eighty years ago, but it was prophetic exactly said what would happen and what we're seeing the fruit of now. And look this is. This is the issue that we struggle with right now, and there's two factors to it because this is the price we pay for for abundance and liberty because what ends up happening one generation fights to save the Republican Save. Western. Society their kids. decided to rebel slightly then end up getting somewhat on the most path, my parents generation, and then they are convinced that my generation has to go into these mind warping indoctrination camps because that is what is needed to be an upper middle class individual in our country, and this has been one of the great lies of America. In the last thirty, forty years. I'm actually working on a book on it and it's not. Not that I'm anti college in the sense of what it should be actually pro enlightenment I. Love Learning About Carton and Arkansas. I just wished that's what happened because it's not instead you learn about Nicole Hannah Jones and you learn about white fragility and you you you bathe in the nonsense of Jean Jacques Rousseau that we need to be a primitive civilization that you know civilized society is something that is wrong that. You look at this. It creates very Unin, grateful, unhappy people, and you pair that with very dire and real financial circumstance, and this is the second part of this that conservatives don't always talk about Eric and I'd love to get into this, which is for recent graduates, the amount of debt burden. The things that they're studying actually don't help them economically and they don't see their wellbeing and also go into these overly flooded cities where things are so incredibly expensive that they're not able to build wealth. They don't get married. They're very miserable by the time they turned twenty, eight or thirty. That they're perfect for a revolution, they're ripe for revolution actually that their net assets are seventy thousand dollars in the hole. They're working minimum wage jobs that wouldn't have required a college degree in the first place and all the sudden that lecture that they heard five years ago about the need for rebellion taking the spirit of robots sphere, all of a sudden they act on it and we wonder I. It's so funny I talked to some of these people in some of the best. Wealthiest communities across our country and I, I love doing it in the summer because these are kind of when the enclaves of the the mountains and the upper east. You know that's kind of where people gather and they kind of start to discuss money. They should give the Yale and I start to start to ask themselves say. But why why do you have to do that not every and you know they're starting to. Wake up and say, Oh, well, because we we need, we need more people to be able to go to our best institutions adopted at the Dawn. I said, well, what if what if they produced? I. Mean You wonder why the statues are tumbling down? You wonder why we have these revolutionaries. It's large part because it ever happens on college campuses. It's not like a nuclear spill where you could just contain it. It's not sure noble. It's a virus, it spreads. So that's what we fight for every look again to be clear and I don't like to always reference might myself, but there's just no getting around it. I was at Yale I know that's why I mentioned it. I graduated thirty six years ago like it's hard to believe how long ago we're talking the early eighties. What we're talking about right now. This is why. Why. I'm bringing it up. It was in full flower at Yale in the early eighties going up to forty years ago. It didn't start ten years ago or twenty years ago. It was in full flower. I was indoctrinated in the early eighties along all the lines we are talking about, and then after I'd become a Christian and asked is on my way back to the. Conservatives and patriotism of my dad who raised me to love this country I. Realized that William F. Buckley, the father of modern conservatism wrote about Yale and about this in a book called God man at Yale, which was about his experience at Yale in the late. Forties. So we are talking about something that has been trickled down education trickle-down culture in these elite institutions in America. Since the forties in Europe, it goes back another twenty, five years after. World. War. One. So these are different ways of seeing reality and they have finally come into the mainstream. So we have young people believing these things tearing down statues trying to burn down federal building it to my mind without any question. Education is the problem and not just college. Education Charlie K. to twelve has been doing this that he. Are. As, woke as it gets and I'm working on this this thesis as well a which I think you would enjoy, which is it's the educational. Foundation that's been laid, and then it's also the American middle class that has gone more cynical about their economic wellbeing, and so I've studied closely the Russian revolution in the Cuban Revolution, a wide Castro and Che. Guevara was eight. Why were they able to have residents in? Cuba. It's because the the Cuban. middle-class basically lost faith that if they kept working hard playing by the rules things, we're going to get better and I'm really afraid for our American middle class because they're starting to set in with that kind of cynicism, and that's the for example, in in the sixties and seventies, one of. Of. The reasons why the Soviet attempts to try to build off the Communist Revolution America, just kind of fell flat on its face, is that the factory worker in Toledo is like that sounds great. I gotta go back to work. Okay. You can go study all this nonsense. But now we've laid the foundation, and if you see if the American middle class does not think that their kids are going to be better off than them whether it's true or not. It's all kind of appearances reality here. Then all of a sudden, they make the perfect potential bolsheviks, in fact, their ideal bullshit backs. because. If you lose sensitive material well-being of your society and I'm not an over materialist, I'm not to say that it doesn't play a role I. think is not correct where that if you do not think that if you work hard ten years from now, you're going to be richer and your kids will be better than you'll either disconnect from the process or you'll tell your kids to go burn down the city. There it is. In a nutshell I think that again, what we've been seeing very recently is the full flowering of this kind of thing when you have people shining lasers into, the is the blind federal marshalls I have to say that most Americans I think see where things have come. They see that when you get to this level it's all breaking down what might have begun as a peaceful protest has been hijacked, and I think this election is going to hinge on that. When we come back I, WanNa, talk to you about the upcoming election. Thing I. Think it's. You, know I hate to say it broken record, but it's the most important election. Right lifetime for sure will be right back folks talking to Charlie curb. Charlie, we've got to end on some kind of a positive note I. think there are enough Americans who understand that trump stands against this stuff and has the guts to do so and I think there are enough Americans that are waking up to the idea that a biden presidency. You might as well turn the keys of the kingdom over to the Portland riots. That's exactly right and so yeah, look a positive note is that we? We still have a chance. Do something about this. I mean the American system. Thankfully, we still have elections that we don't have to settle this thing through civil insurrection. No matter how much the left wants to do that, and so yes, I mean, the positive is that we can do something about this in November now. Will we I? Hope we will I really do, and if we don't, then what would it taste I? Mean my goodness. If we do not. If we do not reelect donald trump, that will be that'll be a death blow to the republic. No that that's true. I mean, I do do everything I. Can I've I've I've written books my book if he can keep it. Thanks to you an animal people who've interviewed me David, Rubin and others. It's like sold out at Amazon, which I guess is a is a problem but I I try in that book to lay out the basics. Gist of the people understand. This isn't some partisan thing. This isn't something we just woke up and came up with some ideas. This goes to the roots of what it is to govern ourselves, and it's like self government and liberty. You don't need to be a conservative. You just need to understand that America has provided. Provided me some opportunities, where have a voice you need to fight and you need to understand that unless a trump is replaced by someone, he is the guy we have to vote for and I I'm very fond of him. But if you're not fun of him, you have to understand the other side is going to take us. So dramatically in the other direction, I think people are beginning to see that and by the way final comment what about what? What is happening the Biden? How's it possible that he could be doing well in the polls when he seems to be a shell of his former self and even his former self was a shell well, you. have to a whole another hour on this, but he's he's he's in the right now framed it as a referendum on Donald Trump, and that's been very effective for him. Is that it's almost a vote of no-confidence by versus trump election. As soon as it becomes an actual election and it's a binary choice, it's a completely different set of decision making matrixes whether or not you like trump or whether you want trump to continue for four more years versus Joe Biden, two completely different things, and they're being conflicted as the same thing and some of this public Poland. I, think I think that about says it. But I'm just wondering how in the next hundred days, this is going to funnel down in other words at some point. He has the Biden has to has to come out of the basement and has to appear more like a conventional candidate. Things are strange because of covid because we're not having the conventions in the way that we normally do. But I really think it's easy to say vote for Biden. But as we come down to the actual voting day he's going to have to do something that he that he hasn't done yet. How that's GONNA work out. So if I was Biden, I wouldn't debate. Things can change very quickly. It's that old hemingway quote happened gradually than suddenly and do not be surprised. If that happens I, tell every trump supporter out there. This thing could be a late breaker, the likes of which we've never seen. Remember Ronald Reagan was down seven points Jimmy Carter ten days before the election, and he had a late break, the likes of which, no. One has ever seen pack Adele may He. He rest in peace that told me that story at least twenty, two times. As we end the Carter Campaign, we saw happen and we we couldn't stop it. We could not stop it. People were showing up and they were just the late break is a real thing that happened in two, thousand sixteen, and so when you look at the summer polls almost always told some the favor of the establishment mccray.

Let's deal with right now and let's get this Rockstar and then what does that fresh pot that is if we you WanNa pull something up while we're oh yeah were talking like if you're like. Who is Whitney Cummings? We can google it he can. And if you wanna Google something like Google. Dave cornhole grill. David David Osborne David We can look shit up if we want to or not. This is fun. It's kind of fancy right. This new thing comedy is dead so podcasting is all we have left. Bullshit is dead. How really kind of people's this podcast goal? I think we'll by God. You want to hear some crazy. Yes already doing this I think so. So Oh one of my old friends from Washington. DC who was a punk rock kid. When we were puncog kids Back in the eighties. He lived in town and his brother was integrate band. Called King faced really awesome go and he went off to to college and did stuff and now he's the editor of bone apetite. What Adam Rappaport? WHOA Yeah I did? His podcast passed. It was great talking about food. Yeah because I do barbecues. Oh I've heard about and so we so I wound up on a super foodie. PODCAST give a green egg have many green eggs. That's like if I'm just kind of hanging out doing stuff that's not like a fancy one. No then I've got like the the big ones. Okay Yeah. Have you ever done a barbecue competition now. I feel weird about that. Well it's like having a drumming competition or something. You would win the competition. I don't know it's it's plus you know I do it recreationally and and then I will cook for people sometimes. Sometimes I'll caterer cooked next weekend for a thousand people at the Harley Davidson dealership played. Now I've never been paid for making food question being a good drummer. Lend itself to being a good barbecuer. Well you get paid for that. No I don't understand you know I have to be on well. This is sort of part of what I talked about with my friend. Adam report was that cooking and preparing during food for people is not unlike Making music and performing for people very true. They're very similar very true and that the preparation listen in making recipe or preparing something not unlike writing a song and recording it and then serving performing it's very fulfilling to watch someone one getting nourished by something you made. Not that I've ever had that experience. I think you might be the same in that when you go up on stage comedy and stuff you want people to do. Are there for them. However I do think though? There's now that I've been doing stand for a long time it. It hasn't lost its joy. But there's definitely more pressure like doing something I didn't get paid for that people didn't buy tickets for. I feel like I would get that feeling back. Does that make sense. Yeah cooking for someone. I think actually might be even more rewarding to do you stand up at the Harley thing to type five ribs come out her weight in Santa Clarita Yeah. Isn't it on fire. Hope not on not because of your barbecuing. Yeah that's actually one of the first big things that I did because I've been cooking for a long time and And when they had all those crazy Malibu fires that was watching it on TV and And saw evacuation centers and I was like. Oh Man I should. Maybe I can go. Maybe I should go cook. Yeah evacuations but then I thought the last thing they want to eat is some fucking smoked. BRISKET DOC. Praise evacuation centers. It's not a good idea. So black and COBB. Yeah this guy that used to run. Our website became a fireman. Firefighter cool my heroes. So another amazing so we went and we got in touch with him and I made food and delivered it to like eight different fire houses king on stations and it was great but then I started doing like more and more stuff like do something for the Food Bank auction it off so that I go cook for parties and stuff so so rad. Does this like when you had kids and had to start providing for little mouths relied cooking. Yeah well I've always been like Virginia Barbecue Dork but not like a serious one. Were you a crab guy. Oh my God Chesapeake Crab Dude. Absolutely I got the best place where here it's no you can't get I've I've I've flown blue. Crabs out here that's on a chiefly I'm not kidding. I've flown bushels of crap point of having money because that's It's my favorite world. My friends and I get in fights all the time because when we go get Sushi and they get baked crab hand when you grow up in the DC area you just. You've had a level of crab that no one else in the world can understand something about something about it we used to do. We used to go to ocean city Maryland on Jamba down there I was so shady ocean city Delaware and we would get my dad called it crab America and we go crabbing. Oh it was so fun I used to go back every year to rehoboth with guy no I was in ocean city Guy Wander all oh and and then I because we couldn't have nice nice now. Oh it was pretty sketchy back then and then there was Bethany which we stayed a couple summers cheese. Bethany beach was like between between Dewey and rehoboth and then because rehoboth. That was the most expensive one that was the nice one graduated to robust. They have like nice restaurants and stuff their product. I used to take us to like. We'll take acid used to take acid on the boardwalk and go to Dali's Taffy Taffy on LSD sunshine. House dolphin shorts. I commend it to anybody. And then go on the gravitron. Did you ever go to gravitron. You know they have had this haunted house. In Ocean City ages ago it was called Morbid manner and it was at the very end of the boardwalk. I this is like I'm older than you. This is like early eighties mid eighties ladies and so it was. It looked like the psycho house. It was like a haunted house. It was the most terrifying. There's no way they can do it now like liability. There's no way to do it because times. Yeah and you'd walk in first of all in line for an hour and there's this guy chasing people out of the House with a chainsaw the whole time standing in line afford going in there. There's no way and then you go inside and the first you get into this room and it's one of those things where you stick to the wall. Aw whatever they're called growth in the thing and so you get in that and there's someone in like sitting in a chair in the middle and then you run through the House and people grab you and then the only way out is to run through this room that's filled with all these like prosthetic bloody body parts and a guy with a chainsaw. You have to get past the guy I think it was like a bike chain on it mutilate healed but you have to get past him in order to get out the thing. It was amazing on houses have you. They can't touch you. I think we can like in haunted houses. I used to go did they would you. I feel like I just read something about this haunted House that they shut down. It might've been in Birmingham Alabama. Where like in order to go in you have to sign like a forty page? Disclaim our liability thing. 'CAUSE funnest funnest if no one's going to like going in there and what about a fucking grandma i. I don't think it's there anymore. Because we used to get on and and we'll see. And then you would stick to the wall in someone would always puke. PUKE would go right back into your face. That's not not great. I can't it was legal. A Lotta Shit. We grew up doing now days. They used to sell beer bonds in the stores on the boardwalk in ocean city. And they were like they're really cheap. They weren't good ones. There were really cheap and they had these would say get bombed like a neon funnel funnel with a thing in it. I bought those like well into my thirties. I was buying those things I used to in. DC We used to have lawn darts lawn darts. What did they were like little darts that you would just throw into the lawn and they would go into kids lay? Yeah that was a toy when I was a kid even slip inside the rocks. Hailing your asshole. I feel like we used to run and fly into slip and slides. That's a lawn DART. Remember those Jaju throw gorgeous will get him in their shoulders and shit easy. Those were the days. What about panic rooms? Have you ever done one of those. Is that what they're called. escaper escape right panic rooms. That's what I call my wine room at home. The Pentagon sending my panic Abrahams. Have you done one of those. I have not the one personally but I've been with my children in them and they can figure it out and I can't be stuck in an escape they would save your life. They would say my life. I don't want to do that. I know interest. I'm too competitive. They wouldn't be fun. I don't know how they work but I just know that competitive all the time. I'm the person that game night. who like ruins ruins tonight? Because I get to competitive fun. No not anything. I don't think I like Ping Pong. I get angry if I miss. It makes me too frustrated. So your problems as you. How dare and all of these bad experiences personnel? I feel like it's your. How dare you not everybody else? Okay I just I like I I think my I'm very good at ball. There's a great bowling alley right down the street. You know that that was really fun where we had that Corbin Bowl Corbin bowl bowling tally right down the street. It's fucking awesome. Pins pins is Nice Nice. Well now that you're Corbin Bowl really is. Yeah because they have this karaoke room in there. That's fucking it's like the voice. You do Karaoke okay. I don't like singing. Those people take it so so seriously. Have you been in the Barney's beanery Karaoke. Oh that's like people that are like like they're waiting for an anr guy scratch. It's you know it's kind of sad when I first joined the Bass player. Chris lived in Tacoma Washington which is not really much pronounced to coin or is it. I think there might be a tacoma. But let Tacoma There's nothing there and so they're like these weird sort of lounges and taverns and bars where you would drink this fucking thirty years ago but We went Chris and curt and Cris exway shelley and I once went to this bar where they had a karaoke thing and at the time we were being being kinda groomed by all these different record companies. We're getting bidded on by all these sink gifts and Shit Benny Honner so they but we had so many in our Margai cards wasted when I gave an anarchic card to karaoke singer. Terrible what what what I. I don't remember which it was either current or mere Chris and we gave it to were under the impression that we were an anarchy. We're GONNA maker famous. I feel like haunts. You still think about it with you. I feel like that person still has that card. Foreshore tablets is on. Tick Tock right right now trying to reach people what's took talk. You don't know what to talk as my kids do. Are you WANNA walk now. You Watch them. Do you know what it is. I feel like it's it's ten seconds of something it is and it's basically member musically. Your kids are probably on musically. Oh that's the one where you do. Here's what we used to. We were kids where we would sing it to the mirror with our hairbrush and I would like sing along right to the to music. They now record it uploaded to the Internet so that they are unemployable I've done one talk do did it with Kesse okay. Only because she has a song called tar familiar okay and I was like you know what I'm GonNa do you it with her. Because that's the only way I won't feel Corny. This is tick Tock I actually looked up your music on it. There's lots of your music on it but I don't actually see you you know that's not really lost. The what are you going to pay for this revenge of the nerds version. They do you like your music when somebody else does it. Do they have to pay for this. Right I mean we probably have to buy Whatever that was I have no idea? You're about to get money from us just playing this on the podcast. And that's all I that's great that's fucking coffee by the way what's going on in here. I I don't know Benson is probably panicking. Did you know about that. I told you about the fresh box. No the coffee that they get out of civic poop. Oh I didn't fucking click on it. I drank once. Nobody could figure out the coffee machine in our house. Okay then someone is going to starbucks and get Dave Grohl you you know. I was kidding about the coffee. I've had coffee but if someone's going to starbucks rice someone is going to get up. Dave Grohl here everybody put together. We also have I also. WHO's this guy? Are you shaking in your boots about this guy Probably about basically dry lip sync on picture. That's to talk to your music or anyone's music. And they do it for fifteen or thirty S. I've only done one I know. Hold on okay. I'm I'm getting it. I don't know how old on I'm too old for this. This is mine so that's me to do any of it right and then you say I don't know what you know what I really WanNa do. Do you know okay so I don't do twitter and I don't I don't do facebook.

Oh no there's the one where you can can you can put you could sell yourself for birthday messages. That did not do Kamya. People that have had a lot of people messages literally. The only reason I won't do cameo right now is they tell publicly. Luckily say that the price of what do we have more coffees coming. This is my nice. We have to caffeinate Dave Grohl on a second. Do you think you're addicted to coffee. Me I am. I get a headache if I have it. On my coffee I get a full of problem. Like cluster either go to the hospital. Wants from drinking too much coffee really. Oh Oh 'cause I was having chest pains. I thought I was dying. This is ten years ago. Whole fresh pot thing? Yeah that was a that was real. That was not a real real thing and I drink so much coffee over the course of like three weeks. Yeah I started having chest pains and I thought I was having a heart attack but but we were about to go play at the White House on the fourth of July. I now so I thought so. I put Bayer Aspirin in my wallet and drink a lot of red wine because I thought I looked up online. Cancel it out. I guess keep dying and so went and played. DC came home. Call my doctor and I'm like Mel. I'm having chest pains right now. Dr Mel and he's he's like are you having right now kinda kidding here so I went in and he put me on the thing and I'm like on the treadmill and he's like doing a Sonogram and he's like I don't know I don't know I can't find any fit. You should get a cat scan. Earn Merano's so I go to cedars and they put me in the thing and they do the cat. Scan thing and I come out and the doctor sits down with me with the computer thing. The readout is like a turns it on. It looks at for ten seconds to go. How do you? I said I'm forty ten years ago as forty I said I'm forty. He goes okay. Why are you here? I said I'm having chest pains. And he goes all right and he basically went down the list. He's like underneath the stress a little bit. Because you sleep much I sleep like three and a half four hours. Amazing to me is terrible. And he's like to drink drink coffee house like dude and so he said That I should to caffeinate. I tried quit. I tried to quit coffee and I was hysterical. APOPLECTIC fits every day couldn't do it. Oh John Dave do you watch the Amr videos. Can you tell us to sleep. Wear gross awesome as me physically. Ill listening I came home one night and my kid was in. My oldest daughter was in living room asleep and and that was on TV. With and so I walked in and all I heard was like what the fuck is my house right now and it was a girl with a with a command head brushing their you know like massaging the microphone on it or something and it was just girls massaging. This kid was dead asleep. I'm like this is fucked up and sat down and watched it for forty five minutes. No nothing no tangling. It's kind of annoying. I find it very annoying to makes me physically ill. It's getting like cars so long because you kept it going somewhere you can hear them going fucking you eating a banana have some water. Yeah totten mouth. I have lots of questions for you. Do you have any questions for me. I'm just getting you know. Can you imagine no let me get my own. Fuck podcast you should I should. That'd be amazing you could have a cooking barbecue pod. Just try to sort of hide from the world. Look so social media your nightmare. Well I understand. It's it could be useful. Uh when you want people to know stuff cracks so like if we make a song then if we put it on there then people will know we have. A news was on. Don't necessarily feel the need to tell everyone when I'm having shit or whatever so But I get it. I understand why people would. But it's not really my thing do you let your daughter's on it. Yeah and then what was the logic like. When did you decide? They were ready I'm terrified of being apparent for this. Exact thing yeah. It's it's I think everybody kind of find their way way. Doing all of that kind of stuff has a lot to do with. Their friends has a lot to do what they're interested in. It usually begins the project project. Can I get an instagram Graham Account. Because I want to do a project with horses. I'M GONNA have my own Horse Youtube channel that yeah and then you know and then he wind up in front of a mirror with a Thong I think is what happens. I don't know so Yeah I mean it is is it. Youtube are are. Do you have to control what is watched on Youtube by your kids. Yes you have to pay attention also. It's just different now. I mean like when I when I was a kid growing up in Virginia like I was listening to Satanic Death Metal and my nice public schoolteacher. The mom was just like honey. Could you turn it down. So I wasn't like running around town stealing stereos and smoking crack or whatever but I bet in Georgetown. Georgetown rough streets at Georgetown. Oh Fancy Nancy Shit now. Georgetown used to be cool. You walk down now. It's restoration hardware. It's J. J. on every corner. What got fourteen well? You know. What's funny is I was there this weekend? And at one point I went and did this thing city lab thing and then after that we're all like is gonNA launch so we went to Jose Andres Place. I think it's called Helio or Jelio so anyway it's on seventy A- and seventh and he is where the old DC space used to be aspects of the market. And I was saying the restaurant I didn't even realize where we were and and I'm looking at my seventh in the DC space and I looked and it became a star bucks. Oh God I know it hurts. My heart isn't that hard hurts my heart and fourteen street fourteenth street. No fancy there's lots of like Bistros like Parisian beast shows released. I went there the diplomatic. That's right I awesome. That's therapy is my heart a little bit because it used to say like I'm from DC and people like Oh that's bad us and other like Cool so you Lebanon Republic. It's changed a lot preppy. Now actually you know the old nine Thirty Club J. crew. Oh that makes Stan Nice. I Love You J. crew but hold on. You can't do that. You're a little bit more over a little a bit. More of a middle of the block anthropology O or no they sell Denim Jackets J. crew. It's birds on that. How arrange that's always? Anyone allowed this to happen. DC lost. It's fucking edge. God Damn it. That is heartbreaking. That's sad I think that was the hallway that went back. I made a lot of mistakes on that property. I did they blow job right there. Yeah Oh my God I had to get in plot no money come on that I met you and I I kind of I feel became friends. There's something about Oat milk is. Is that above her. It's not milk. No it's delicious not mill. That should be their tagline milk. I find a little whatever. This is very okay. I feel like when we first when I meet someone from DC. I feel like they're like instant family for for sure we instantly started talking about the Wiz. It used the WIZ had a guy. Music stores used to have a guide. You heard a song on the radio and didn't know who saying it because he used to be they play a couple of songs you have to wait for the DJ to tell you who it was right so you heard a song a bunch of times you'd go into whatever tower you go to Amoeba you will go into. I would go at the Wiz and you'd have to sing it for them. Are there guys out there right now. That are the guys that any idiot could go in Hama Song too and could say I know who that is. Yes and find the record in a record store. Finding one of those I mean. Yeah if you go MITA. Yeah and you're just like the AMOEBA surge or whatever. Yeah you'd have to do that. Oh that's saw whatever. Excuse me as I butchered Dave. Thanks but that's that's what we had to do and we would go to the whizz and there was a guy that you could shiftily Any song and he can tell you it was the Wiz I feel like there was one insuring into into cares. Member Shows Music Paradise. Oh we always went to Camp Mill. I remember Cantonale Kemp Mill and then I worked the tower downtown and that's gone You know record stores were so much fun not long ago. I took doc my daughter Violet. 'cause she's starting to get into punk rotten. It's funny. She's trying to turn me onto the misfits. Now I was never a misfits guy that so. She's like Dad. Come on it's cool okay But I took her to like a punk rock record store on melrose and it's like she knows what to do but she was just like she was blushing. She was so psyched to a record store. When you walk into a record store is it's just chaos no? They don't go nuts no humming songs. And I'm like. Oh yeah that's the misfits. Whatever no now it's like people of course not like if you work at a record store the last thing you WanNa do? It was recognized a musician. Yeah they tried to play cool kind of it's fine. Yeah but but watching her a record store it that was so fucking cool and I was trying to tell her like this bans coal. Try this band and she doesn't want any of that she doesn't but it's you know now I feel like Amoeba is going to close. That's going to be a dark day. There's a couple of good ones on venture boulevard to There's one that's near sees no. I just moved here dude. Yeah so I think covet right here. I'm worried because I feel like I. It is so hard to discover cool new music now because the algorithm culture. It's like I literally when go on like a news website and I'm next to someone on the same news website. We get different news based on what we've Google right right. So our algorithms changing the kind of things that we learn and accidentally stumble upon and when I go on like spotify. I don't even know I like they. Decide sounds funny. What after it was either after sound city the documentary Iran made or the sonic highways series? I differ HBO. But I was so I was like I'm GonNa Start my own music network channel and I was like I started meeting with people and I'm like I WANNA channel like I want to start my own MTV like an entire twenty four hour channel of jazz music music music and programming so I was talking to a bunch of people about doing it until finally someone was like. Do you really want to be TV that so but one of the things that I loved about the idea which is kind of I don't know if there's one now just on television is that You're right basically when people are searching for something they kind of the usually only find what they're looking for or something similar rather than just sort of like sitting down and have someone else curate a playlist or an experience for them. And that's where you I feel like that's where real discovery happens events so if there was something where there was a half an hour show that was about rap and then there was a half an hour show that was about rock music and then so that you know you almost just like turn it on and leave it on. So that and I don't mean to watch television all day long but you know to to to curate an experience that's more diverse than having someone just search what they're looking for and then have it based on algorithms which I don't even know what that word means the reason that means you get more of the things you already google. Actually I just mean like I'm very alarmed like my you know. I have dogs in rescue dogs and Shit. So it's like all my news dog rescue things and I'm like am I not getting news because you guys are just marketing me things that I already know about like. How Am I going to stumble upon on new bands? How am I going to find out about this shit? Yeah I mean I feel like it's important for people to go out and experience four because that's that's where that's where the fire really gets let When you go like a lot of a lot of festivals have really crazy easy? Diverse lineups are Super Fun. You know European festivals or maybe or something like bonnaroo might be the same thing but when you go to somewhere for eight or ten in hours and you see everyone from Billy I listened to slayer to Edison too. You Know Cotinine Sarah whatever you they have all of those things in one day I don't know it just sort of like opens you up a little more. So you're more receptive to the diversity of music rather than just going to like the electric daisy carnival. And then that's all you got but I do feel like it's important for people to go out and see music that live. Music is a part of people's lives. I've always thought that that's one of the problems. It's better now but years ago. You know we would go. I mean for thirty years years. I've been traveling around playing music. And in Europe they have these gigantic music festivals in every country in almost every city all throughout the summer. And there's fucking fifty thousand people at each one because It it's it's it's more of a of a part of life life And Music is is kind of more a part of general consciousness. I was just talking about this at city lab thing I did the day Where the more that you promote music and the more that you make it a part of people's lives there's more joy and there's there's there's there's something beautiful about having music in your life every day but it also inspiring people to go out and see musicians actually playing on a stage take you gotta see it live that was going to Dell started getting huge? Everyone was like she can really sing. Yeah and I'm like finally finally there's someone that could really fucking really like. She can really sing. She's fucking amazing to me. It was like wait a minute. It's not like is it. Just because she can sing and no one else can has. Everyone's being auto tune out or that. You have to go live to make sure that people are when you're when you see someone that's just kicking ass can fucking lay down for real. It's moving and it's really inspiring like Oh God life. His worth living human beings real scrape a high. I mean I go see shows as a kid I would. You would get high off of music going to see live shows at tracks. Oh God I black fuck it gotta I went to the you know what the U.. Everybody knew okay there like twice I so I went there and I was like fuck I went there many times what would you do there. It was raves. I was a rave kid. Can I ask you questions about drug use. Sure I don't do drugs. I didn't do a lot of drugs but I did start early. The drugs that I did do so in. DC The boat. I don't even know what love boat is a really. I know the show. I probably did it but is it. The love boat was like really specifically Washington. DC Shit love boat was PCP in the mid eighties. Ah May Marion Berry. Did Not smoke elected him again. That's DC's a hero to you. See I know you love someone if you didn't catch them with hookers to end well. It was a hooker Cranston crack. They go well together just always. That's a good pairing. Do you WANNA fuck it party so yeah so no love boat was PCP or something like that. Yeah I never smoked bleed exciting gusting when you fucking burned it burned white-hot like an electrical fire and the smell like fish fucking disgusting. There's funny because the first time ever met Chapelle he grew up in DC right and so it was at this awards thing and he was at the table and this is right around the time that his show. I think he was getting an award for baby the first season and so we started talking and I said I said where do you live. And he said Oh. I live in Ohio but I grew up in. DC Yeah my dude. I was born in Ohio and moved out of DC. And and I said your from DC. And I said you fuck it. Smoke love boat. Didn't it was like hell darted smoke boat. I did not smoke boat. I'm like you fucking bugs test you much because most people did like all my friends did if someone smoked. Boat your bomb. Yeah just throw it internship shit with fish fish it is terrible cod adcock anyway. So what was the drugs. We're talking about drugs so the rave so you're like early ninety three go to the way we would be in like Gr- parking lots. It was a lot of parking lots to do. The thing where you went to the record store like here's the secret map. There was a lot of that. There was a lot of like people wearing. CD's as necklaces. There was a lot of member. Are That brand tip toe. There was a pants by this brand called tiptoe. We'd we're really really big pants and little tiny crop tops. Little tiny top and then air walk. I had no fucking frog love. There's a couple of days that it was kind of the blackout years. Yeah I have no proof. Of what exactly happened a recollection but we would go to commander Salamander which was a place on Wisconsin Avenue across awesome at the time. And we would get urban decay glitter and we'd put like green glitter all around. We'd Shave the back of our heads just to hear and then do a ponytail so the back of their heads were shaved.

I'm dyslexic I don't know how to AH. Asmar guess see if we can try to get Dave Grohl to fall asleep. I don't know I have a big question for you about music right now because I know nothing about it right now. The big question is does music in the same way that comedy in movies is it. Impacting what's going on with this political climate like they say that movies the more Zombie movies. They're they're more that it's tapping into our fear of homelessness and poor people. Just remember all of the movies in the eighties about killer Nannies member Nannies. He's used to like you know the hand that rocks the cradle. On all that Shit and all those Demi Moore movies where she was like fucking everyone at the office and ruin. It was like our fear of women entering the workplace right and not being home all the time like comedy. I know exactly what's going on with comedy right now in terms of like the pendulum swinging with being so afraid of culture and being so afraid of getting getting canceled. Is that happening music. I don't know because I don't pay enough attention to like what's going on in modern popular blur music. Yeah but you're right. Things are cyclical. I feel like I mean you know how the music industry sort of works the music industry from what I understand changes every day. I'll give you a good example. A long time ago there was a website that was called I it was called hit song. Science Dot Com and there were these mathematicians that came up with a mathematical formula to determine whether your song was going to be a hit so they they would assign it a formula based on its tempo and time and key and whatever So so your your song would have basically a number right and then they would throw it into their system and it would. It would come out. The readout almost look like stars stars in the night sky so each song a little star. So you're looking at this readout and it was like stars have but these these clusters of stars that almost look like little galaxies. And so those were I think they call them like hit. Hit clusters or something if your song fell into one of those clusters than and more likely than not it would become a hit. The only reason being is because it shared the same formula as a lot of other songs us so what that means is when something becomes popular you wind up getting a lot of stuff that sounds just like it. coming behind and it because because that's what's popular at the moment so it could be a tempo. That's the thing that drives me crazy about popular music. Nick is that once someone gets a song that's got like a beaten then all of a sudden. It's like if I have to hear that for every song for the last three fucking years as a drummer. I'm like it's fucking coming. I five pissed off about that. No but it's like you know there's there's just more out there than that so I think what happens when something something becomes popular. I don't know if you consider it. Relevant but then everything SORTA gravitates towards that and basically that that just determines our dictates or influences everything around it just because the music industry she just sell records they just want your song on the radio. I WANNA make money from publishing and they wanted just like that. So it's the stuff that's kind of off the beaten path that I get into And I think that those sort of things might be a little more influence or inspired by life rather than just like an industry thing like a good example. Is Billy I listen. I've talked about her a million times because my daughter ars obsessed with her. I mean the thing that I think is so exciting about that. Her explosion in in in popular music is that it was based on on something real and that was the connection that she had with people like my daughter and so her lyrics are are real and and Heavy and dark and very emotional so and so like my kids not going to get that if they turn on a fucking Cardi be song. I'm sorry but it's just not the way it is. I mean Cardi B.'s. Awesome and funded dance around too but if you're looking for a real like deep emotional connection. Listen it's you know. Billy Irish really has that and those are the things that really kind of spawn revolutions like musical revolutions because it has less to do with the radio or the Industry stuff has more to do with a real connection with listeners would have happened without youtube could she have well. That's a good question. Yes did you hear that it's it's debatable. uh-huh I think that would they go. We need you in a crop top and we need you in a mini skirt. And we need you know. Just say fuck you. There's no way but You you know. I think that that there's this There's this like new model of independent distribution. Which is soundcloud cloud shuttling which is great like A lot of the stuff that I listened to I listened to because of my thirteen year old daughter. WHO's super fucking hip and she finds a lot of stuff on soundcloud so that's where she found? Billy Irish year and a half or two years ago She played it for a minute. macos how would you find that A.. And she so and she herself puts her own music on soundcloud. Go Dr. So she'll record in her bedroom engineered herself. Mix it down You know uploaded to an MP three thing or whatever and put it up on soundcloud and it's like that's what you do and I think that's really inspiring because it's basically a much more streamlined version of what we were doing when we were kids. And you just there's no. There's nothing between you and the listener. It's got a song and then you go make a record and then you sell your car. You know same thing because there used to be a lot of gatekeepers and music right there's used to like fifteen old dudes that had to say yes. You go do this. Yes and so if you're lucky You can get around that avoid that. And that's where I think real. That's where I think the real shit happens. And and you know I I still believe in the idea that that you can write and record songs in your bedroom and then go out and perform them on stage in front of people and the more you do that the more people will show up and if it's really great People start to listen and I mean I remember like Alabama Alabama shakes like watching that band like go from A. I would see their name on the bill. Like at one o'clock in the afternoon on a side stage of the festival and then two years back at that festival and they'd be headline in the science and two years later it'd be back at the festival and there you know. And and they're right before us or something and then two years later we're in the same category at the grammys and they win the fucking best rock song. But it's it's fucking did the word and and I think it's really important. I mean that's what happens in comedy which is sort of like. Can you get famous at twenty one from Youtube. Yes should you. Maybe not. I wouldn't want anyone anyone to see any of my comedy when I was twenty. You do stand up once when About seven or eight years ago. God I was at my cousin. Husband was doing a stand up the same at you. Same Tim Hanlin and he was doing stuff. It was at the comedy store and I think you just kind of popped thin and did a little things like working on new shit bomb. It was fucking hilarious thing about like. Did midget have night vision capital. I'll never forget it could say midget anymore. Sorry is that was seven years ago and it's not on twitter tweet. Okay Google things but the auto thing I I was practicing like a late night center so it was really funny. Oh God thanks well. This goes back to the conversation about kids having their on instagram patches. Because like you know you have to live with the consequences of what winds up in the fucking inner sphere. I'm terrified I'm literally terrified of having kids because of the shit. Yeah but but there's lots of other reasons to be terrified. They get hurt. Kids get her all the time. Don't you worry about that every fucking minute of the day. Oh yeah ah I will never relax again. Just constant them all a million things in my life. I never have my leg. It's a lot of people. What questions do you have questions dave girl instagram and I got and a lot of from from Des Moines WanNa know how your there injustice is how? Oh because I had to. Yeah well you know I used used to smoke and I stopped smoking hard well. I stopped smoking. I had another injury where I tore am I. I fell off stage again. I had to have surgery on my arm. Yeah this is the right after my birthday and and I thought right okay. You know what when I'm done with the surgery thing. I'm just going to stop smoking. I've had a couple of cigarettes since then but like but that was that I was losing my voice a lot because I was smoking so much and I think he yeah screaming for three hours a night. That's real. Do you have like a voice. They like coach. The whole thing. 'cause you're supposed to take care of your local courts I it does not. You're fucked right. Yeah I don't have them really. Yeah I go to my guy and he's like you. You're Lucky Mel Different Guy. Joe Joe the medical team of the patches. The patch out really. You could just stop really. Yeah back like did you smoke ever no. I didn't smoke weed a little bit a year ago and I got bronchitis and I was like. This isn't right and I was on vocal rest for on the tour Buffalo. Sorry about those shows. I was on vocal wet rest for like six months while so I should have been to moines Out there everyone was now the No des Moines. Do you want me to read the questions and people were like he drummed into moines and I cried. He wasn't able to saying but he was able to drum and talented. Actually renew this one of the great things about foo fighters. Is that our drummer Taylor has beautiful voice is a great singer has zone ban where he plays drums and sings at the same time. So if my voice is gone I just turned him and I go do just sing under everything. I'm saying you tonight. And he'll sing every word of the Hoyle Save my ass. No people were actually. I don't know if this is good news or bad news. People were like really thrilled that you drummed instead right and many people said they cried. That's weird a lot of people have questions about your hair. Also okay. You are an aberration in my opinion. You're I haven't haven't told you I I I remember meeting you and going. Oh Shit I have no excuse to be emotionally fucked up. Because I had this narrative in my head was like in order to be a great artist. You have to be a little bit fucked up or broken or maladaptive and then you ruin that. Because I know you mean apology because you are so everyone's like how is he so like normal and humble well okay first of all. I'm I think just as fucked up as everybody else now. Yeah I I mean I have. I do But no I mean I I honestly think that and I'd hate so keep going back to the DC Virginia thing but growing up in Virginia and Washington DC and play music there. When I was a kid I I don't really know if anybody had like career aspiration we know fourteen or fifteen years old playing like hardcore punk rock in this little music scene? And there's there's like little clubs and it's the same one hundred people every show you're going to see your favorite bands and your friends or in your favorite band. It was just so far outside of like trying to become. I'M A fucking world. Renowned rock legends is just like a yard. Just want to fucking play music. I knew I wasn't going to go to college I was. I was a terrible student. I I didn't finish high school. I worked at a furniture warehouse and worked other jobs and stuff like that and I just sort of you know I just WanNa play music And Work and have an apartment and do that. It's very juvenile way to look at life but at the time it was like I didn't think that I could so that's really where I fell in love with playing music and I still feel that way. So any of the like crazy reward that I had over the last twenty five years. I mean it's strange to me like it is. It is weird to me that you know I joined a band and then the band became became fucking gigantic. And it just didn't compute. It didn't make sense because I didn't necessarily feel like I was doing anything differently that I've ever done. I just happen happen to be in a band with the greatest fucking songwriter. Ever and other songs became huge. And you know if I ever felt overwhelmed. I'd just go back to Virginia in your mom's House Springfield and like hang out with my friends ride motorcycles and barbecue and then you know that I'd go back to being Nevada. And then I go back to DC and so. I don't really see what the big deal is like. I don't understand why I don't understand why something like that I mean. I can't even say that because I do understand why some people have a hard time with it but for me personally it. It made my life a little more complicated but I do believe that it made my life better like I got. I hope my mother retire for being a schoolteacher helped my mother by house I I bought my own house. I bought a truck. I built a studio in the basement. I started another band and started my own record label and and my band is on my label to license and distribute all the foo fighters stuff to to another company. So we're in control of everything we do. It's like it a lot of it. Seems really ideal. There's downsides to everything and Yeah at times it's really difficult but I mean I look at I look at what I could. Who have been doing? And I think I'd rather do this than what I. Then you know like drywall. The fucking new starbucks on seventh and eighth. That's probably in what will be my enemy right. And so Yeah so and plus. It's just you know it's nice to be nice to people and people people. Are you know usually nice to me. I don't get like screaming crazy crying. Fans people like what's up. I'm like hey how's it going. That's cool that's cool that your fans are cool. That says a lot. We have cool fans that says a lot. My anyone that comes up to me is very bossy. I mean you people for photos or do they not all day long. I come up to me and they'll be like hey. My phone's dead. Could you take a photo on your camera and just email it to. That's not going to happen. What is what five am I giving off? Were happening habits to be all the time that all the time and then I people to come up to me. I've lost dudes that. Come up to me and the Blake. Hey I don't know who you are. My girlfriend loves you sick. Well that's going to happen. I'm like Okay Dude. Why do you need to her? Feel I'll and do it like oh I know it happened to say I don't know who the fuck my kids and then they go. I'm sorry I don't know who you are and then you say like that's it makes my life a lot easier. You know you're either tixx. We're even yeah. It could be worse. That honestly is my life mono it could be worse. Wow that you have say that until it gets really really worse and then it'd be like what the fuck it couldn't be worse than that. It'd be worse. It could be a lot worse. Do you think though in now in music that there's I know in comedy enough bad things have happened. That less people are definitely having less maladaptive behaviors and choices most people. I know in comedy. They're sober they're Vegan. They're drinking Jamba juice. Doing Yoga Yeah it's a bunch of dorks. What happened to Sam Kennison this? Wow Yeah and I mean. Depression is still prevalent injury And you know but it seems like everyone's getting ahead of it. Everyone I know has a therapist and comedy. Now you know it's interesting because I didn't talk to Dr drew about this. But something similar fucking ages ago ten years ago or more but I was doing a fuck and one of those officers. Arturas is sexy. Show whatever that was exceeded fifteen years ago. It was a long time ago but at the time he was sort of doing a study eh with entertainers To determine I guess to sort of figure out what type of person becomes an entertainer. I think it's the same a lot of musicians and a lot of entertainers I think that maybe their Their motivation comes from a place where there is a lot of emptiness S. and this team you know they. They feel the need to kind of do whatever they do in order to repair that love at all costs. Yes yes so yes so it's similar. Well I do think music at least bands and stand ups or slightly different. Could stand up there like I'm GonNa do this alone you know. I don't know how you do that. Isolated it's not not healthy. It's weird very it's not. Why did you decide to do that? Bad childhood good. All the horrible things that went down with Beach Maryland. I think there I think there is when I grew up. I'll speak for myself. I grew up around a lot amount to illness a lot of addiction. Shen lot of alcoholism and the safest place was in my room alone making fake music videos listening to my brother's Gogo tapes. That's where I felt the safest when I had was away from the drinking and the that shit so I do think that comedians are slightly different than musicians in that way is that people are scared to US teamwork. That's sort of weird. I don't know if I want to tell everybody this. You can always cut it out later. I used to. I used to have this tape recorder order little cassette recorder and listen to music before I went to bed. And then when I was maybe like thirteen twelve culvert thirteen I would hit record and I would talk about my problems for like the whole side of a tape. And then I would rewind it and listen back and fall asleep listening to myself talking about my problems. When did that when I was thirteen? It's not weird. That's kind of like a genius. Therapy don't know why I did. It is well I do know I. It takes a long time to learn now that there but that I work with explain as soon as you say one of your fears out loud it engages your frontal lobe inherently less afraid. I'm afraid of interviewing Dave Grohl today. I'm nervous about interviewing Dave Grohl. I'll automatically be less nervous because my front lobe engaging I need it I need it then. You Stop Producing Cortisol and adrenaline adrenaline. So you must have known that at an early age. No I had no clue where those tapes over please Cochabamba Virginia they get. Those tapes takes about me talking about your divorce. We can put those on Ebay and raise a lot of money Or the firefighters pretty big barbecue remix I I do think though comics don't play well with others the same way you can in a band and I remember when I would tour and do radio because I used to have to do radio before there was youtube and instagram. That shit you would do radio do you remember the Man Cowan Chicago. Remember him. I don't know you probably probably were too big to ever have to go on. He was kind of like the Stern of Chicago. And there'd be bands there it'd be like six. Am and I'd be like God. Yeah that looks so much more fun than this to be like rolling with five people and like you know there is something cool about playing music with other people that you might not necessarily know or be able to talk to or you know. I've been in vans. Where like the relationship is so dysfunctional hill? We put on the instruments. Oh Wow and it's the fucking greatest in the world Because in away and it depends on what kind of music playing but you do communicate musically with each other and so sometimes you connect with a musician musically more so then you would personally yeah and And then you just know like have boundaries in terms of like okay. This is how much time to spend. This is so fucked up because it's almost like sem. There's a lot of trust involved in so many words. Stop our no You know it. It has a lot to do with like my friend Josh Hami. WHO's in Queens of the Stone Age? Wouldn't we play together. It's like instantly great when he's on guitar and I'm on the drums. We totally finished each other's sandwiches really bucket. We'd compl- we just have this thing where we can do it. And it's fun because we sorta like push and pull each other in this way that it's like a conversation conversation but But a lot louder. I don't know it's probably do find someone that you can really jam like that Taylor and Drummer Taylor. I mean we're chemistry is that we're like yeah. I mean to me. This is nothing before the foo fighters go on stage. There's no like to God. Please give me strength Winds Orleans. Well we drink a lot of or whatever but to me. The most important thing is that we're laughing hysterically as a walk on stage wjr and every night we have those fifteen minutes twenty half an hour before going on and for real it is. We are usually fucking cracking racking up right as we walk onstage. So that's how you begin the show and then there's you know and it's amazing. I don't know how these bands that don't get along. I went so the eagles when when they were at the forum. I don't know why I don't know why. And they all came onstage. At different times they wouldn't even speak to each other. I mean so there's it's insurance which is another conversation but they would. Why did they were in shorts in pajamas? They were barely there but they all came in at Gorton to feel comfortable onstage. I was like Oh like they're doing this dramatic thing where they're coming out one at a time who'd you still have the same kind of musical chemistry and not speak at all off stage or is it like you know makeup sex. Well Yeah when you're with it's a it's it's I've been in bands where there's not a lot of communication and then you go on stage. No because I honestly feel like the emotional connection that you have with the person influences what happens and onstage are off but when you're like jamming in front of a bunch of people I don't know maybe it's just me but I like to feel like I'm with my fucking gang and because when there's one hundred thousand people there you don't want your fucking cheese in the wind. You don't WanNA stand there like you're like Oh my God it's just me in a fucking fueled I don't know it's like if it's us then I feel a little bit more. Do you think that like there's something I know. This definitely happens in comedy. I think he's having a little bit less now. Because I think fan fan bases are just more fragmented or there's less of like everyone knows one comedian. But do you think that they're I feel like foo fighters and obviously all the bands. You Bet. Hey you can get really really famous and still be cool whereas we're not cool disagree now. We're not life. I don't know if you are willing. Well here's the thing so now I know like we're I've done interviews with people before where they basically say like. What does it feel like to play? Music that's obsolete. That's that's I've had. I've had journalists. I had a guy in London that worked for Jackson. That's a Dick I. I agree pissed but no we're so wild and we sold out nights at Wembley to fuck faulk cat. He's a Dick Anyway. But that's not true that person's not that is a dumb person. Well I think a lot of people I mean. Look at this point in the whole dad. Rock thing we're totally. We're so data. Fifteen year olds. That are obsessed with your. We're totally I mean as which we got that interview. We're doing it if you're actually a guy though so we were like in Singapore or something are young the people on it and now I feel that we were in Singapore in this Promo for the last record and this and this woman I question. So what's it like to to be a dad rock band. No swear to God I love it right out of the gate Old Trafford I mean what are you GonNa do the first of all we are all dads. And you're right. We're rock band. I don't like that one bit. But here's the thing. Is I think that you know at this point. Look I'm fifty years old. I fucking gray hair. I'm fucking need to show. You don't want to validate all good. You don't. It's fine so I have but you know the funny thing is I have never considered are banned cool and I like that because why you're cool probably. That's the cool thing about nine levels but yeah I think that we there was a time I remember like around the learn to fly video and stuff like that we were basically trying to make an. AM Gold Record. This is nine hundred ninety eight and I had a house outside of Alexandria. Virginia was in Alexander's. That's out of Old Town and I built this studio in my basement. And all I was listening to like Andrew Gold and Gerry Rafferty in Tennessee and just full on Anglo. Because at that that era of music it was purely based on melody and harmony was really musical period for music. I loved it. And then that's why I grew up listening to that Helen Reddy and phoebe Snow Shit like that. Like I love music like that Carly Simon and that was the ship. My mom and I would listen to Her Ford Maverick car so at the time this is nine hundred ninety eight music was like getting really like new metal. A huge thing rap metal title in new metal and stuff just like this and so like a scarecrow and so so I was like fuck man. Let's make an am gold record and really honestly we were not. We've just never been hip cool. We just really haven't and I think I think that the reason why we're still here is because we do kind of disconnect ourselves from like the popular stuff that's going on but also because what the fuck do we care but honestly I you know I just WanNa fuck and play music you know and having watched a lot of my friends not survive. I'm just like I just wanted to play. I just want to be alive and play music. I really don't give a fuck if we're cooler not so I don't want to argue with you but you're very cool like the But you're humble and that's why you're not GonNa go insane so it's good to be humble and cool won't argue with you and I have questions for you about music videos now pop video. I miss it too. I miss it. Why did that go away because music because think about it? If you were to do pop I wanted to bring pop video back Herzog about it but would pop video now just be like boom boom. We did this. This was green screen. But this is this is a hummer. Yeah why doesn't that to meet music. Videos were my life watching them over and over again pop up video I live for it. I remember once someone at MTV telling me that this is fucking A.. Longtime at twenty five years ago that the criteria of videos that they would program basically like the thing was they wanted. They wanted the viewer to want to be in the band or in the video. So as a viewer you were if you were watching something like you know. Like the fucking blink. One eighty two and there's like the learjet and they're really WANNA party with those guys or whatever that that was something I it's probably still a lot of the you know a lot of the motivation behind making music. It just you. You know. It's it's kind of it shows you a charmed more beautiful rose colored version of making sense. Right yeah I think so. I think so I'm sweating thing. Why you're hot okay? Not Letting you go yet. We're going to do a quick. I did you do anything for Halloween trick or treated yeah. Did you have a custom. Yeah Al Lame Really. It was like this fucking trench coat and put on a skull mask. WHOA so why do you have so many trenchcoats we live in La? Yeah I know why are you. Why did I get that game remember? Yeah and it's called mask and and now that's another the thing is like I'm walking around the neighborhood and I think kids are scared of me and their parents are pissed. I'll be scary like like people get your skull mascot with the skull mask well how maybe even without but like with the skull masks. Yes yeah whether a lot of trick or treaters in your neighborhood We weren't in my neighborhood but yes there were a ton of trick or treaters. I'm going to do a little speed round. Okay have you ever made a mistake and then later realized it was not a mistake because I'm obsessed with this musically. Oh absolutely record something like I've got fucked that up so bad and then no no keep it in part of the Song I love that so much wjr and do you have songs come to you and then you're like fuck five the song in my head. I have to go do it like that's how I think that's wasn't that like the famous Mitch. Hedberg a bit where he talks about like the funniest. He's got the funniest joke in the world in mind but the pen and paper so far away the work I started after Mitch and discovered a kind of after and I'm so glad I discovered him after I started doing stand up because if I had seen his work before I probably wouldn't have done it I would been to. Intimidate US finally went to target. I missed my favorite joke Do you have any pet peeves. Yeah Oh God. What are people all that like? I don't know who you are. No what's a pet peeve of mine I get really. I noticed weird little things with people that I can't unnoticed us like me. What now? Yeah but I don't talk about that anything. Those things like the sound. It's usually sound actually really chewing. Do you think you have that Misa phony thing. I have that apparently. I don't know what that is when things are louder to. You know I'm deaf as fuck impose really but complain music. Oh but before that I can hear voices from across the room I can hear really i. I one time went into a building and I heard like a humming sound. There's certain people that can hear certain waves or something and it was the alarm and it was so loud to me. I couldn't even serve but nobody else heard it. Yeah I'm a nightmare. Yeah I think it's mostly like chewing sounds showing thing. I asked people. If they're showing up in front of me like to stop. Could you not do I have other. You might have missed. SAPONJA miss a phony media or Senator Usua- is that when you hear in color it's when you see same music GonNa win your wires across do have that because I don't read music but I can hear here song and imagine the arrangement like an shapes in my head. Oh Wow so well so I can memorize arrangements really easily in and parts because I kinda see that's what is that called Cinecitta or is that a genius madman who can call it that either. I don't know what it is tickets I think it's just a drummer that does not read music do you. I am really big about talking about gifts because I like giving gifts. What's the best gift you've ever gotten or a good one best gift ever role and I'm big on how to shop for Dad's like what to get you know what a good one us? Tell me the Japanese toilet.

You don't I am so I'm practically amish. A luddite I can't I just don't I can run. I can engineer like a last recording session yet. Pro Tools all the things graduate. I'm all good with that but when it comes to any other level of computer savvy I just I think it loses some solid emotion. When you're on a computer? Yeah I mean it's yeah it's weird. Though the other day I actually did type something coming out on my phone but I also like little phone notes. Yeah uh is what it sounds like dictating on. This is what it sounds like when you come up with ideas for songs and you're just humming them on your voice voice notes. Oh my gosh. Hold on the sewer. We've got Dave Dave grohl voice. Now hold on so there's logging on this. There's a hundred and twenty of these. I have them too embarrassed to play them for you because minor like jokes.

There's actually some instruments If I come up with an idea so you haven't written that down I can't write it down. Mines too embarrassed. I every music minor like going on stage at comedy clubs record other people talking. Are you talking about how you're fucked up. You're really hate it. Can't listen back to it. Then why did you even record it. Biggest nightmare ever is that I used to have these. If you put them in your I tunes. Is that even still thing. Is I tuned still a thing music. I don't know how it works title. What are we doing now? There used to be I tunes and your voice memos would go in with your music chronic right your music library. Whatever and I remember one night I was on a date with a guy and we came back to my house and we were hanging out and we really maybe GonNa make out and it was on just random mm-hmm and one of my legs? Muggers Thang is what's up with squirting. It was just something so embarrassing and I was just like well. There goes that that no bigger game killer than my name's last voice coming on you know what how about this. How about you? Don't listen to yourself. Why don't you go like do a show and walk away thinking I just kicked ass at just kind of believe that you just kicked us in a shame spiral in the car? Yeah I don't know what that would be like. Yeah I can't listen to live recordings of my band. I would've working on new shit and also I think that when you know you're recording you put too much pressure on yourself and your inherently inherently not as free and. It's so it's never as good and then when I don't recall them like fuck. That was a good show. Oh right I shouldn't put myself under microscope record and I should be in the goddamn moment. Yeah and the clouds somewhere and someone's going to hack them ruin my career at some ambiguity meister and yeager and yeager. What else do you grow? What else do we need to know your fucking show? I don't know I wanNA talk to you you forever done. No never done never done last question back last one. What are you guys? What do you think I'll give you two more two more questions? Just keep going. What time is it? I mean we'll just I'll do. Where do you have to be made a fucking record right now? Go to the grocery store go bigger batteries. Just hang out fuck it shopping all day long to podcasts. You do it in your. Oh this is why we didn't talk about the other. PODCAST you're out you're on the bone. APETITE podcast yes I I do have a question. Are you scared of anything. You strike me as someone who's quite fearless. We're not like I don't like I don't like being strapped into things so oh like podcast like this. You don't like rollercoasters this I do yeah. I don't mind roller coasters. That's that's not how. What am I afraid of? Nothing see unbelievable. I don't know you're fearless. Man I guess now not really. I don't elevators kind of I've been stuck on my there was once where I got stuck in it. It's only happened once. That's my nightmare. Mine to always. That was the one thing and I was in Australia New Zealand. Staying in this hotel on the sixtieth fucking floor like like way up there as checking out and it was one of those fancy hotels need the key to get to your room and the company had given me a bottle of wine but they had put like this fighters New Zealand label on and on the cool and so I get in the elevator. I start coming down. It's like noon and we have a show that night. Coming down on an elevator to stops on the thirtieth four and immediate panic on my book and I'm like hit lobby lobby lobby. Nothing happens I hit open door open door urban over the Holy Holy Shit. I am stuck by myself. Elevator on the thirtieth floor right now. Holy Fuck Shit. So I hit the little button the call button and and then like death and a high. I'm stuck in your elevator right now on the thirtieth floor and they're like Oh my God. We're so sorry we'll be there in a couple of minutes and I'm like fuck and the panic hit so hard that all the muscles in my backyard and this bottle of wine had a screw top. I open a bottle of wine. shug chugged bottle of wine. Right as I like went the elevator starts moving so now I'm hammered at noon. Kick that sucked the last thing. That's so funny to me. The last thing I'm going to say it's not a question it's a thank you actually end this kind of emotional note I I remember reading somewhere like ten years ago. Something you said something in a in an interview. My best friend from college. Is this girl Lizzie. Good men who wrote that book. Meet me in the bathroom. She's like a brilliant music journalist and she had shown me some article. Your whatever you said something where you said. There's no wrong way to grieve said that in something. I don't remember how it kind of stuck with me and my dad passed a year and a half ago and I didn't cry for the the first couple of days and then I was crying so hard I couldn't breathe for like four months and then I would go numb and then an and I remember the hardest part about grieving about it is that I was beating myself up for not grieving properly and that kept coming up in my head. You saying there's no wrong way to grieve and it helped me be gentle with myself through the grieving process so I owe you a thank you for that. You're welcome Com. It's funny I think that I mean I yeah. It's weird my best friend that I grew up with new sometimes. Five years old we were inseparable like my whole entire life and he passed away. Maybe like ten years ago and He overdosed on drugs. And like we were so super tight we had ESP. We knew each other so well our entire lives. We spend our whole live together and that one was really tricky. Because I still don't feel like I've properly great. It was set. We were so close with each other and we were such a huge part of each other's lives that then all of a sudden he's gone and And it's weird like you've you wait for that release you know you wait for for everything just to come like all crashing crashing down or for it just to come pouring out of you and I guess sometimes it doesn't sometimes it doesn't. Doesn't you know one really weird thing. Is that before. Kurt died. He He overdosed once when we were on tour and I was actually back at home and he was in Europe and someone had called me and told me that he had died and and I immediately freaked out and was a total disaster and just crying in and losing my mind and then five minutes later they called and said actually he's not dead so then it was the greatest day of my life because he was okay but I was just so I was just so confused like emotionally. I was just like Oh my God what do I even feel right now. Five minutes it's ago. I thought that he died. And now he's alive and that's so weird and so So when he finally did pass away. Hey I was. I just had such crazy emotional confusion that it was really really strange and still to this day. I don't even know if I've figured it out. I mean I it's that that was a long time ago and I've talked about it and thought about it and grieved about it a lot but he. I don't think that there's any sort of like roadmap for it. I think that each person does it in a different different way. And it's okay to it's just okay. If you have those periods where you feel shame for not feeling more uh-huh and And I I don't necessarily think you should. I think it just is what it is and it'll get. I mean that'll get you eventually. It's your body way of probably letting you feel only as much as you can take. You know I think my body. I couldn't believe how little I was feeling but I think it was my body's way of doling. The pain Out a little bit at a time so that I could survive it and no one told me about the anger either. No one told me that rage comes up to and but I did. Have you kind of a refrain in the back of my head like. There's no way to do this. There's no wrong way to do this. You can be nuts. You can be a loner and I also want to talk to anyone. I didn't want to see anyone for and I would have beat myself myself up about that so you kind of stop me my inner bully from tear myself apart. Thank you for saying that so I owe you another coffee or something. That was really fun until just now thanks. I love you Dave Grohl and he's got an hour we've gotta go more got got here. We Are Davis gone. That was scary. I was nervous that I seem nervous. No really did you like that interview. I really like him Yeah Human Angel. He's he's too good for us. He's too good for the world to specific trash people and not good enough for April. I just can't believe he's just the nicest guy on the planet and also the most talented and mindful and thoughtful. Why am I suppose surprised when famous people are Nice? Because I've met so many monsters I think that's why normally your heroes are pretty disappointing. I don't think that's true. I mean how many years have you met one who you. I haven't read it well. I've probably disappointed you before Just visually outfit wise. He was super interesting down birth. I feel like you were extra. Make today for him. I only have two moisturizer. First of all I wear every day with. Sunscreen is tinted sunscreen or tinted moisturizer. You put not. It's not the same thing Obama together. Do you put sunscreen vent into moisturizer and case. He has no Benton to not everything in the world about makeup he used to work at Sephora and knows about all the shit and he's the only reason I know anything I heard that. If you put tinted sunscreen on that causes breakouts and and you should do people. How dare you interrupt me in front of my fans with logic and facts let me keep rambling and providing dribble to the masses? I heard you should do sunscreen then. Makeup not tinted SPF stuff. Yeah maybe you should. That's probably true. Yeah but yeah I mean. Most girls guys probably true new name most girls and guys nowadays wearing so much make up the sun's not penetrating that anyways okay like but make up isn't SPF unless it has SPF in it. Yeah which most of them don't anymore because All white women were highly against it. What does that mean ooh? Every day they would come into Sephora what make does not have. SPF in it. I don't they want it. They needed the money they people think. SPF makes you. You can't be tampered with. Well you can't right. I mean as an old way you can tan it's protecting you from UV. Rays you're not GONNA get as hands if you're buttering up laying on the beach but I me lake. You're not going to be like I mean. We're not translucent. I am and we make for yourself. Vampires yeah but I mean. I'm leaving go please. I dare you to try to get out and get these men that I keep the door security. I mean you can still. It would be like to have color. Also there's a hundred products. You can buy tanning water. What tending water is like a self tanner? I don't do self tanner and never goes by choice. Hood is always look. Look like I have skin disease. It looks like yourself yes. That's the problem looks professional okay. I don't have that kind of time. Who are you at the professional? I would hire no. I don't like it. I look very scurvy e the day. Nasim the wrong one. I didn't say he's like coming from dollar general. I may get a nice one general dollar first of all second of August on General. No it's not a south dollar general. In the known end it is both of us are dyslexic. So one of us is general general dollar. No it's not Google it okay. Well we're uh-huh oh we're cutting out benton being right is not. We should not set this president on this podcast. I thought it was fun. I do have questions questions for you though because I have noticed a lot of my straight guy friends and this is not just an La thing. Name Them Krista Lear A lot of my a straight guy friends. I'm learning are experimenting with makeup and I'm not even joking. These are not actors. These are not even people on television. I've had a couple full straight guy. Friends just have like what looks like caulk or like grout and I don't know what to say 'cause obviously it's becoming more socially acceptable for straight guy to wear makeup. But I feel like do we call them out when it looks crazy women. Are you tired. You're so training you see. I hate when people do that. I'm like I got eight hours of sleep but thanks. That's just my favorite. But let me ask you a question. When you're working Sephora were straight guys is coming in to buy makeup so string guys when they come in they will try to find like I like this when I worked there so they'll try to find someone that some people are just listening the way you look? I looked like a Turkey with a beard. You ever seen a muffin grow facial hair. That's what I look like. That's a fact. blueberries dare -Tario no you look like the interior designer from beetlejuice stone rude word. There's a rudest thing I've ever heard in my life line. I think the number to the Trevor Project we're donating we're donating no. You don't look like him. A lot of people make it better. What else a lot of people instagram say? That you're like remind them of him. I think that's a compliment. Okay so anyways. What I'm getting at is though when they relate to and then would come up and they'll whisper they'd be like Do you have any Is there anything here for guys. And I'd like all of it by something because I have some straight guy friends who I'll just see have obviously experimented bearman with like conceal her. But no one's told them like you can't just put on any anything beige is not going to you have to make sure it matches your skin because they've become a hate crime very quickly if you don't have the right shade also we can see it but that will require talking to someone and admitting that you wanted to wear. That's true that we've had this bubble you know in the past that you you've been in the trenches of this when a man in your experience straight man has walked into Sephora. What do they say they will whisper what they want to you? They'll be like your ear sexually abused. Or they'll have their girlfriends out that They'll have their girlfriend. Ever dated has asked US my makeup. I should probably look into that as soon as I said that I was like a lot of things are gonNA make sense. They'll have their girlfriend and they'll have a reason he's and always be like. I have a job interview. I'm going to stay on a news. Anchor like whatever It's something that they need it for and they say it's for something specific because 'cause every guy I've ever dated when they have a big. They're like can you help me will never let you try it on them. Which is why it never matches? Yeah but don't you can't you match it is. Is it sure Germany Cup on your wrist. I don't but this is a question is does this skin on your wrist for those of you listening. It's like right where you're I don't know your wrist is Is that the same colors. Your face ace notes. The color of arrest I mean. That's like a cool. I guess the trick if you WanNa do that. There's all kinds of tricks put it on. Just put it on your cheek so so I mean that's what you should do. But and then they usually don't leave buying anything. I was dating a guy and I may or may not have been snooping in his bathroom. It's it's called research it's called self care. It's called trying to find red flags before you've been in a relationship for three fucking my I it. It was a red flag to him that I was snooping but I was looking for red flags and they're usually in the bathroom drawers so I was quietly opening historic and and saw some makeup some like covergirl. May there he was. Yes quiet. Quiet something I've been quiet before doesn't happen a lot but I'm incapable of it and I saw it in the first thing I thought was. Oh my God he has a girlfriend right. But then I was like a girl wouldn't use a cover like an old. The girls know that makeup expires and I knew the packaging was old so I was like pretty second. Is he dating a girl who has makeup from the ninety. Like how old is this. His girlfriend like it didn't really add up and end up confronting him about it because I was worried that you know he lived with someone or something and he was like. It's mine and I'm it was a lot to process and I hate that. I had a judgment about knock. I don't think straight guy should be able to wear makeup. It was more like. Oh is it a red flag that he's vain or like is he a narcissist. DOES HE WANNA be an actor. Wasn't really it or was it or was it the masculine more I was like It's also a red flag that he can't be vulnerable and emit commit if he wants to wear makeup should be able to and he's insecure and maybe there's some something there that's a red flag. Why can't you just go to Sephora? And just say hey I want to make up. The cassettes historically make it was a master thing like Egypt. They weren't too for hygiene the key. Bugs eyeliner was bugs. Out of your eyes and then like don't we all have a billion bucks now. I don't know I don't And you know and then they have like the Romans Rouge their cheeks they would put rose brother blood roses. Whatever so you think and then you know the French they did like beauty marks and powder wigs men more high heels and then it was Queen Victoria the first she outlawed all makeup so no one could only she good no? She didn't wear no one was aware she was too feminine and she linked Feminine entity to the devil really so there was a big wave or no one can make. It was like a legal queen. Victoria I I I. She did a lot of Queen's did a lot of fucked up shit we forget we talk about like there's no women in power queens are in power and they were savage and then you know and then you move into the eighty s and you have like Bowie and you had like Scott Barnes kind of nineties eighties. And then you have like Prints all those people in dabbling makeup beginning with their cool. So that's cool. No one is rather than David David Bowie. Now and then you move in two thousand and there's all the guideline or you know there's Pete Wentz and there's Chemical Romance Levin. She had guy liner on. I don't know what that means but that was what does that mean. You're allowed to say that again. What does that mean like? It's like an tragedies oh did I wonder is literally it's island the guys who wear but it's done very here's what I'll say there's nothing hotter than a guy is breaking rules. You know so a guy wearing eyeliner or make up your damn. That is a iconoclast. That is a bad. That doesn't give a fuck or could be a red flag. Could go either way. And and then Adam Lambert popped up in the two thousands and he was four four down. Mack beat hit on you know full coverage map and that was everybody was like well. He's so cool. I say everybody lightly but you know most people and then we had. The Jeffrey Star was on my space. Yeah so it's just a straight the conversation that I'm interested in is why can't straight man a straight man walk into Sephora or wherever and say I would like some conceal her from my under eye bags or whatever it is which Kristalina you should do. Because we've only seen so many men wearing makeup yeah avenue it's connected to feminine. Yeah but what I'm interested in. Is your experience of having men come in in like Sarah Tissue covertly tried to get it and should should we have more. Men's make gender is not have agenda but colors unfortunately because of social construction whatever a lot of guys probably WANNA be pink bottle on their foundation that comes into pink bottle. Show me one in your bathroom. So you're clear bottle of black lives. What do you need I okay you want me Purple Shadow brushes and they made me physically? ILL member was the Lakers. Don't they wear purple point. You're bringing up some good. Frankly has its eagle okay. I'm living in. This is ego. We're your marketing toward the only time. Someone's markets markets towards your ego. Is You need this. Because you're bad and you're not gonNA Maverick come on. We have to go backwards. You're going to be so cool so let me ask you. Can we do this. I think we should do a video a makeup video for men I Song Christopher Brooke yes we will use Krista Leah and his giant eye bags and we will do because I think that a lot of these makeup contouring videos no one is making stuff for straight men just to go. Here's how to just cover zipped it. Here's how to pluck your eyebrows. Because I'm sick of having to do it for the guys that I date. There was a book my eyebrows can you and it's just like I don't work for you but but also we could avoid and I just WanNa save you guys some embarrassment. 'cause I'm seeing a lot of guys out there in the streets with just weird like dabs of Whiteout on their face. Looks crazy easy. Because I don't think the guys necessarily also cover red. which is the pimples red correct which means you have to put a color Cranston okay? Well now you're you're pushing it until natural and do that. What can you do a youtube video? not on me. I don't have under eye bags because I actually really don't know skin care his concern courts guys either. It's the all. The AIDS are the frequent mother. Willow from Pocahontas looks like just that dry barky skin and they're like. Hey you know what I think. That's Kinda hot though. It's unfortunate that guy's the older they get the holiday. Look I think you disagree. That's fine guys. Have like deep lines and ridges. I think it's Kinda hot. That's different than what issues with my dad. Uneven you can have laugh lines and lines face. Yeah I'm I'm just saying you're skinny. You shouldn't be able to peel your scoff one layer. I think you should do a makeup tutorial four straight guys the three in this room especially that is just a covers. It's if you want guys should be able to cover redness around here so that it actually looks concealed because I don't nothing most guys understand that I can see if you've applied makeup wrong women notice you look crazy. Yeah a lot of guys are out there in the streets. It's a crazy in the streets looking at crates. Yes they looks like a Just they'll just they'll just put it on some old dry crusty as makeup just it just looks like clam. Chowder is different. Men have thicker skin and and I mean The metaphorically not necessarily nationally. But I have toll all call guys out about it like kindly guy go. Hey I can see your consumer Goudie talking about fuck you and then like we don't talk for six months yeah Becau AH thicker skin but physically thicker skin like just on their face And also it grows hair so there's a lot of different it's different guys. Skin is different. Fran you cannot put foundation on because it'll grab the texture of your hair follicle and stuff very different. I think we should a mini to`real on itching your face the way you do it coast of so many times. I'm not going to let it go because I think it's it. Looks crazy crazy. This is how Benches face those Dennis Book Looks Insane. No this insane to do this but we were at dinner party and I was like yes. I love that story. Oh by the way if you guys are just listening. You don't know what's happening. Benton's crazy T. lightly tapping his face like a crazy person Having a seizure Just with his name. It's a tap so that you don't rip capillaries. Is that what it's the reason is because you should never scratch. And you should also never put makeup on going downwards right because the poster Frenchtown their elasticity skincare most solution. But don't you shouldn't put on with with your own makeup on your hands. In general I do. I mean you can if you're like a makeup artist because they know they know you you put makeup on like this and you just rub bone Roese. I do it in circles. I saw you put makeup on your whole face. I put make-up over my lips and then I take a towel. Wow all and then wipe it off. It's how he how dare you. I'm triggered will you tell me the quick story about when when you were working at Sephora and the women shoplifted lipstick We used to when I worked at. This was at Mac before because it makes a difference because it's the way we display lipstick. It Mac you've ever been in the all the round display to test. This woman will come in. She would twist the tester lipstick which by the way those are cl they're very sanitary but they're cleaned before. Use them when you put them down this after someone used exciting. They're clean twist them up by off the Tester and hold it in her cheeks peaks and leave with it. That's how she would still. which is Simone is my? You're my hero. I love you if you're listening. I will hit give you money from the cash out just for that story. When I worked at Sephora people with that whole on the fly section shop the whole parking their mouth and you can still anything in your mouth? Don't don't still think that's terrible but you can. And then you used to also have you. Would women were shoplift by buying expensive cream and then bring it back four Foale something else. When they did this was at McAfee again and It was studio moisture creamy. She came in and I was a freelancer. At this time I think and the manager she came in and she was on a return this cream and I mean the manager of this maxtor I mean without missing a beat. She grabbed it unscrew. This is manny. They gave it back to her. So this woman ran the latest left scooped out the fancy cream and replace it with man as he wasn't going to no doubt not look perfect. I mean it was swirled perfectly. I don't know how she did it but the more impressive that the manager I mean. She took her so fast. This is manage. Ma'am this is mayonnaise. Manny's very specific smell. That's an easy thing that's all right. We have to wrap this up.

You you don't need a lot of validation and I don't feel like I need that I I'm doing if I do need it. Subscribe subscribe now downloads and Hashtag. Yes but like you don't need to tell you good job. Yep I do okay. They never mind sorry. It depends on who it actually depends on who like I definitely have someone like if mcco over here one of my producers if he was like that was good. I'm like well you have to say that. What are you going to say? That was bad. I do have that little inner monologue but if someone who's has gets nothing out of it I believe but like I can. I finish my sentence. I have a big humble brag on the way After my special came out Jay Leno called me and I was very very kind about it and I believed him because I was like he didn't have to do that. See I feel like it'd be more realistic coming from The producer really. Yeah because I feel like a fantasy of Oh. We're both famous great. We love you good job and I would I would I would feel I mean. I think that Jay was serious. I was there and you know that wouldn't have asked asked if I read it to a community in the hallway right after my special comes out and they're like it was so good I'm like okay. Well what else are you going to say if someone goes out of their way to reach out. That's when I feel like I can hear agree with that. That's that's what I what you just said what I was saying. I think people that are doing the same thing like it. Sounds like we're fighting but we actually agree we fight over the things. We agree I look for are instead of complimentary validation. What I look for a new is when you give me advice or constructive criticism that's more meaningful to me because if you weren't doing it and I'd be like oh she doesn't? I don't think I can do that or she didn't care and that's what I think. I always forget sometimes that you also should wrap criticism in compliments like. Here's all the things you're doing. Well here's but yeah I think that the biggest compliment to be when someone That I look up to give me constructive criticism because they wouldn't spend time trying to help me be better if they didn't. Yeah believe in me or respect me. They want me to succeed doing retail really. Yeah because that's the way that you're talking to give feedback people. You're told if we're not giving you feedback. It's because if he you can do this job. Wow they're investing because they really are when you can hire. I think everyone should have to work retail retail or food services at least three years so they can have any other job. Wow because you had prepares you for everything. Prepares you for things but also just because you treat people different when you've had to do that and you have a very good read on people like you can read read someone's energy very quickly which probably a lot has to do with the amount of retail. You worked yeah. I think a lot of that office do comedy to but but I think that I think you should have after work retail because I think that people that don't have never had to do it. They look at the mall or that experience as like a luxury for them like everybody works for them. They're coming into a space where you have to treat them a certain What you should treat your customers well but I think that when you on the other side and you had to do it when you go into a store you feel differently? You're like here's what I need did the research. You're not trying to make that person's life harder more more respectful. I know everyone I know that and I did not succeed as a waitress For more than I think it was like three hours But everybody I know who's been a waitress when they're so much more fun to go to restaurants with because you never have to worry about them mistreating. WAITSTAFF are not tipping enough or being disrespectful and also probably didn't succeed does play a comedian meaning to communities can have other jobs that I that I would be proof of that I was not a good manager is a flat. You got a lot of good jokes out of my my favorite is the thing about when people ask about the price when say a surprise and you're like on the price and the price I do that I didn't even realize I did that. I'll be like. Is this the price like are you sure. Positive final answer yeah. It's so wild tale. That's what they're saying they're saying like angle go with you like well. What if I know this marquette this is what are you doing? Yeah I love hearing your retail stores. We after up this up even though I wanNA on a keep talking well. Luckily there'd be more of these yes there will be more of these guys subscribe to the Youtube. Channel tweak questions using the Hashtag how shot good for you pod and we should wrap this up because I need something. My blood sugar is starting to plummet. Why had a good time? Did you not a great time guy turned heard of Eddie complimented to an insult. It's depressing okay. Live you guys see you on the Internet.

No people come over to us. They go. So my husband's surprised me. He wrote me this whole story. Like, they come over and tell you the whole thing of why they're there. Yeah. It just makes it that much. It's awesome. And I've seen you know, some of aging parents with their kids. Norwood take tastic generally. It's not a it's not a sea of blue hair. Really? I mean, there's no, but. But it is. I mean, but there's a lot of like hotdogs and purses, and like people who don't wanna leave the theater, they don't they bring secret food in their bags. So they don't miss a thing. So much to see and it's been amazing. My described my husband has a normal person. Which is that he didn't watch a lot of this stuff. Right. So the fact that I got to introduce him to Harold, Lloyd. Oh, yeah. While sitting with sue Lloyd, how fan alloy orchestra get to watch safety lasts on a big screen, and that's not. Of course, I think anybody will enjoy Harold Lloyd any day. But that is the perfect way. So for me to get say to my husband. I'm just show you this movie that I love in a room full of people who love it too. I'm glad it worked out because that could have been the end of a perfectly shapes over. Okay. I'm just saying. What what are your duties this weekend? I am presenting the film high society, which is a tall order, but I'm so excited because I'm at the new they're using the space that was recently renovated American Legion. Hi, I'm excited. It's on Highland. I pass it a million times it almost looks like a giant square wedding cake sort of a party cake, but they guess they've renovated and they put money into it. And I'm I'm so excited to just be part of the unveiling, and hopefully, I don't stick up the joint. To see it. I'm so excited about high society because as a as a I mean, I was just raised in front of the TV. I'm one of seven kids, and I just feel like movies were just black and white movies where my life. I mean, I can't it was always attracted to it. Even with the color. I care, but I will say high society being a an Irish Catholic woman actress from Philadelphia, we all we were always so aware of the Kelly family because they also had it house in ocean City, New Jersey down the shore, Grace Kelly, Kelly's famous uncle the playwright George Kelly. Well, actually, I'm more talking about her father and her brother. Yes. Her brother. Her father was a an Olympic rower three time a gold gold medal, and her her brother was also an Olympic gold medal. No bronze medallist different different Olympics games large than this is true. And they actually have a giant road named after. After John B Kelly Kelly drive, and that's how you know city. Yes. Yeah. In the in the nineteen eighties. They dedicated it's along the Schuylkill river. And if you if you see it you won't be able to spell it a cat. It's the weirdest spelling its name. But yeah. So so Philadelphia's always been very aware of every move that a grace Kelly's man, this was one of her last movies and how yes it was. Yes. Married Prince Rainier, right? And she wore her actual engagement ring in the film, and it really it looked bigger than life because it was. Yeah. Yeah. Isn't that amazing? She asked I appreciate these fun. Fact. I know isn't that great. I know I love that you guys at home get this for free. That's right. That's right to go passion. No hot dogs in your pocket, or whatever. And I'm sorry. Not you know, our family. That's exactly how it goes. And what else you do it? And I'm presenting with Dave cargo, which is going to Acuna before love in the afternoon. Which is Billy wilder film with Audrey Hepburn, and Gary Cooper and MAURICE Chevallier. Yes. Oh my gosh. And I used to ice to wait on Billy wilder at Cape mental new restaurant Beverly Hills. So I have some limited but specific knowledge of blue wilder, and there was so much chemistry between the two of us. I'm kidding. That's okay. Crony and cheese around the corner. He always had the same thing. He had calf's brains and eggs every time he came in. And he'd have a MARTINI a short MARTINI, and he'd split a piece of apple pie with whoever. He was with very consistent, very consistent. We have to explain this. This restaurant was an exceptional restaurant. Yes. A lot of us a lot of people. I know missed to this very day. Yes. It was. It was definitely built on an ancient burial ground. Everyone in Hollywood came up all ages shapes and sizes, I mean, walk from the academy Motion Picture Arts right which has member screening of new movies every weekend all day Saturday all day Sunday this where we'd go before high holiday services because our down the street worse. Yes. Yes. But the economy was this Kate Mullany was a big part of the academy experience. I used to have to go in at five in the morning. The days they would announce the gas because they would have blood him. It'll come up with for bloody Marys right after that was are their traditions. So so, yeah, I mean, you know, I it's the thing is that when you hope and pray to work with the great spec-specific around about the time of the I couldn't get arrested in a way, but I was still playing I don't dishing for things I test for things. I'd wait on the producers that night. You know, it was. But that's how it goes very make peace with it too. That's very show business. It's just the men of the actor waiter. And you know, I'm I was hustling and working as hard as I could. But I you know, I was getting up there. I mean in this in the sense that I was forty years old when I got the office. I'd had some successes off Broadway and had done some coastal, and I worked second city, of course, years before that in Chicago. But you never know. And you just got to keep doing what you do. So there's any, you know, people that are doing one thing, but trying to do another may I say, I'm the poster child for hang in there. They're all different attitudes toward that is, you know. Very good. You know, keep your head down and keep moving right attitude. And then I read a long time ago Lawrence Kasdan, the writer director made you know, the big chill right over auto. And gosh knows how many other movies not to mention Rachel's the lost ark. And all that stuff, which one is that I'm just kidding. Thing he worked in advertising for years while he was trying to become a screenwriter his advice based on his own experiences. Take a job you hate. So that you never forget what you really want to be doing. This is true. This is true. No, actually, I did not Kate mentally, and it was not my favorite job. I mean, there were things about it that I loved, but the people that worked for tough. And it was I mean, we got yelled out a lot you. There's a lot of moody people with a lot of power that. You know, if they're having a tough day, they're gonna take it out on on on the waiter. So so, you know, I it prepared me for being on a Saddique me at thick skin. You know, but it does motivate you if you if you let it you either your either your they're going to go all the way or you're gonna get out do something else. That's really what when you get pushed that hard. Let's see I always say to people anyone who the audition process on its own tells you whether or not you can handle this right because I can tell you now that I couldn't I never wanted to be an actor or anything like that. But taking friends as I did all the time. On their behalf. I was upset. Right. And it was the kind of thing where I thought this is how I know. It's not something I want because my God, you just have to if you love it that much. That's the only job you can do then you do it with the constant rejection is true, but hopefully have therapy and some psoriasis and support system and stay within the people that don't really support you because you can't afford them at a certain point. You can't pick yourself up and them too. So. So. Yeah. Say it though. So we are. So you you loved watching old movies with a TV set as your portal. Yes. Sure. Who world my dad, always knew all the character actors? I'm youngest of seven kids. So my dad was forty when I was born. So he was raised like he would go to the movies in the early thirties. And he so watching an old movie with him was reliving his childhood. And of course, he was in World War Two. And so some movies he missed when he was away 'cause he was a prisoner of war for over a year in Germany, and so he would kind of be, you know, he there was some things like some gaps to fill in when he came back. And so he would always talk about that. So I always felt like it was a way for us to become close. But my dad always said to me who is that. Who's that character actor you tell me that you come back, and you tell me who that is. So it was a little game we used to play. So I always knew who Mary Wickes was and you know, James Gleason. I mean, there's so many great wonderful supporting players that just had because of the studio system they. To play so much and they're so worked in the time. Yes. And there were so important to the jigsaw puzzle of each movie, they're part of the fabric of those. Absolutely. And I couldn't do it without him. Now. Godless, Ed Brophy. Every zoo pits. Come onto the great Kelly. Come on. Yes. So great. So all right. So now you fall in love with movies. It helps you bond with your dad. Yes. Just great. I don't get it. What was your first step toward? Performing performing. I wanted something to do with show business. Well, I I I played by ear. I play the piano by ear which was kind of like, my I little I'd watch something in a movie, and then I try to play the piano, and it was bugging my older sister because she was taking lessons since she couldn't play by your sheet. But, but I I wanted to be an actor actress as a kid, and my my mother was like, no, no, no, no, no. And I would write compositions about it. And then when I was about thirteen I started to go for any local audition grip in Philadelphia. So anything any dinner theater if I could get myself there. I would go. And you know, any amateur show. I had auditioned for the chief town amateur show. I didn't get it. I got beat up by three sisters who were they were a contortionist act, and they were chained at the neck in the foot and their act was tangling. Detangling? Yeah. But you know, I think it's a disgrace to lose to that AC. That's not I don't know. It's kind of hurts still. But I I became obsessed with the show any because I was about the same age as Andrew regarding who was the star. And then I was trying to you know, I just for Albert showcase which was Albert's from the four aces. He had his own Amtra show. And I sang the same song everyone saying they all sang Anne. I was like, but my strategy was I was going to sing it better than anybody. So I did not get that. And there was a woman that got on who she said play the entertainer. She had some like carnival hat styrofoam hat and a cane. She's like, yeah. She got on it. I didn't. 'cause she said she had a stroke, and she taught herself how to walk again. This is kind of early. America's got talent where you have to have sob story. I didn't get that part. Yet. Didn't I didn't. I I don't really play. I don't respond to that part is what I get it. But I don't like it. So so anyway, so I had some some some knocks and blows. But I actually wanted to study voice when I was in eighth grade. And my mother said yard top and piano, your sister only swimming. That's it. You wanna do what you figure it out? So I worked in a Chinese restaurant one night a week that my oldest sister. And I I that's what paid for my first voice lessons. And then I, you know, kind of figured out like if you want something, and you don't know how to do it. If you're not great at it. You're it's going to require some effort and some study and some just like really, you know, those hard knocks. I some for some reason I got that at a early age. I'm not sure why do you like to sing? Well, I'd like to sing Broadway tunes, and the old standards stuff. I heard movies. I, you know, I love fringe algebra and Gershwin and Harold Arlen. You can't. Yeah. Absolutely anything Judy Garland sang was fine. With me. The bar was hide. Oh casino. I mean, nobody's starts out singing, Judy Garland, but Judy Garland. Yeah. Jesse have one portent thing in common your great love of Ethel Merman. This is true. Oh, oh, yes. I didn't tell Takeo that. I have to tell you that. I love obsessed with her. She was on TV show that girl with Marlo Thomas in the sixty ran reruns all the time, and I was like who and she was also an into madman member. And we'll hilarious hull laris. She did a few musicals. There's no business like show business investigator, Donald O'Connor, but still I her comedy, so funny. My oldest sister who's thirteen years old got me tickets to see Ethel Merman sing with the Philadelphia orchestra. I think it was the summer between my seventh and eighth grade. And I was she was seventies. I was mesmerized by have such a profound experience. Seeing her life. She was really incredible my mom saw her in gypsy. My mom on in gypsy has is now my mom got see you'll Brenner. My mom did all those kinds of as is. I have extreme. You know, my jealousy knows no bounds. Same thing though. My dad, so Ella Fitzgerald and Mel Torme and all the rest and again, Don good kill them for having gotten into. So the only issue in our household was that because my mom played all of the Ethel Merman stuff over and over again. I thought that's how one should sing. Of course. Oh course. Oh, Jesse who loved music and studied music Jesse definitely thought that that she should sound like Ethel Merman, and I refer to me in the third person. Because that was how young I was. So I quite literally walk going. And I my teacher my choir teacher in third grade suggests I love I love that you love Ethel. I get it. She's incredible. But no one else needs to sound like. The world needs to sound like that. And then it was the hardest thing in the world for me to go put I understand. I don't go off key on purpose. I said, but she. It took some practice to to not sound like Ethel Merman. Well, yeah. And I think Ethel Merman reminded everyone that no one else could sound like I mean, she was very she had one thing. And she did it one never had a voice lesson. Remember, she's too bright about that. On the talk shows, my favorite one of my favorite things when she singing you're just in love, you're not. You're not sick, Justin. Let me up and get your to me. It's always that. It looks a bit. Like like a cartoon where when she turns her head to sing at the young actor to whom she is seven aiding it looks like a cartoon where he's like blowing as says, she's gone and all the pioneer commercial with this just there's just win coming out of her mouth. It's no, you're you're you're you're right on and Iverson shy understand. I'm sorry that you're that. You know, the the, yeah, my mother absolutely at all time sing out Louis. Every bit of epilepsy. This amazing. So you made the mistake you brought it up. Paying the price but back to you. Yes. So what to high school? I did. Actually, I was gonna bring one more thing about Ethel Merman summer. I got to sing with the orchestra in the ocean City, New Jersey, the ocean city pops it was a boardwalk I used to work I spent every summer in my life there, and they it was an evening. They asked me to sing. Everything's coming up roses. So I did and I had out of body experience. I was so motion afterwards because I thought I'm I'm like the right age sorta I'm not I wasn't. I'm not quite as old as the was when I saw I think she was like seventy I'm getting there. But yeah, but but I had such a profound experience like singing that song with an orchestra in front of my family. It was just crazy. That was crazy. Anyway, I just realized that you take so much courage to keep going in this business and. And she's one of the greats. Like, she just kept yelling up kept it, no matter what was on. She was even in the movie airplane. One of my favorite jokes that movie. It's a great joke. And how smart for her to have a good enough sense of humor about south to let that happen. So yes, anyway, so nominal experience. Yep. Absolutely. Absolutely. But when I when I was a senior in high school, I actually booked one of the dinner theatre jobs, and my mother, actually, let me do it. So I was in bye, bye birdie at the riverfront dinner theater, and we had nine shows a week. We were not allowed to eat the seafood Newburgh. We can help ourselves about pay. But no seafood Newburgh. Amy songs in the movie 'cause I was playing Ursula and earth saluted enough assigning the original show, but they gave me an Margaret song from the credits. Bye birdie. The army's got you now. So it was nice. So I had a little you know, it was it was good. I got some good reviews, but I still felt like a child star because I got to leave after fourth period because I had a matinee. Shays? And also the year before that I was I was a featured extra in the movie taps. So I actually got to know. Yeah. Just perfectly for few weeks, Tom Cruise, and Sean Penn and Timothy Hutton had heard of them yet. It was crazy. But you know, what? My facial expressions were so big that when we went to do the scene where George C Scott gets shot. I got taken out because I was too. I was I was planning to the back of the house. So I just remember being so heartbroken over that. I was still involved. But I was like, oh, no. Like once. I saw the movie it was like. Oh, no. But it's. He's learning. I mean, that's a big one. And that's. That's a lot that one of the toughest things. My dad always says that you have to meet a movie on its own terms something he repeats constantly, especially students he teaches at USC. So also those students right twenty one years twenty nine or so great. But, but that's one of those things where with certain films, even he will notice. It's a bit over the top out in performance are over the top. It's it you don't just no no magically. No, right. How to change? Because what do we learn in the theater to the very back yet? No, no. And the pitch of sixteen. I was like, Ooh, I I didn't know anything. And I remember the producers being on set. I think it was Stanley Jaffe, I'm just remember it like observing because I was there for a few weeks. So that's a long time. And we weren't I did some crowd stuff to my mother. Actually, we did some stuff together, which was hilarious a Chechen dogs. She was so like no show was but I remember. Just like being such an observer of the process and kind of learning and Timothy Hutton actually won his Academy Award during that filming. So he actually bought it in and I saw it. And I was like oh my gosh. It was kind of profound. It's funny. I actually talked to him at the up fronts when the office he was on a show for NBC about twelve years ago. And the office was there, and we actually got to speak at Radio City Music hall. We all went onstage. I thought this is such a weird my life is so bizarre. That all these years later talking to Timothy Hutton, and he actually is willing to talk to me because I'm an actor, you know. So it's yeah. But that that experience had an effect on me. And then when I was after the dinner theater show ended I was an extra in the movie Eddie and the cruisers, and I actually missed my senior prom because I had a close up at this one thing. So I was during the filming of the song on the dark side. So if you ever see that movie, I'm still acting my azoff under clapping. But there is a few seconds of me in this red sweater set a little plant in the front row, you know, being extremely enthusiastic. That's cool. Opportunities. Absolutely. Absolutely. And. Yeah. And there was no casting couch vultures. It was really like a no harm. No foul. It was you know. Yeah. And then I ended up going to to school for theater, and I Well, I I went to Shenandoah conservatory college in Winchester Virginia. Because one of my best friends was there your hat, and I got a partial scholarship, and I studied voice, I study musical theater, and I really enjoyed it. But I started to realize that unfortunately in the eighties women in musicals there category. Got like the funny women got a got the axe because Andrew Lloyd Webber came in and creatively, MS. And there really wasn't that second banana, the female second manana that there used to be the was always, you know, in Oklahoma. There was eight any you know, there was Meghan bringing. It's just there was something that was just it was just shifting and I thought I don't I feel like nobody has a sense of humor. So I ended up transferring to the university of yards in Philadelphia, and I had a pretty good experience there. And it's interesting because the two years that I had a. Doa studying voice, I'm using more now in my forties and fifties. And I did and my twenties and thirties. It's it's interesting because I've been singing with Jane Lynch, and this band, and I have to really use all these muscles that I wasn't even sure I had any more. It's crazy. Yeah. Interesting. Why do now? But I feel like Jane Lynch is one of those people that had more faith in me than I had a myself. I was like I don't know if I can do some stuff recording in a studio, but to do it live, and you know, we've been doing these really big towers, and they've been wonderful. But I I've always had sitting Zayed's like, I'm not sure I can re produce this every time you have to have some tricks. I can I mean. Yeah, it's you know, I mean, sometimes there's Mexican prednisone involved. But I don't want to mention that. No. But it's it's it's it's it's a lot we shaded. I got to do ten shows at the Carlisle in September. If you're working in the in the much shrunken world of cabaret, right, right? Which is a almost gone, but yes, thank goodness hanging on by threats. Yes. The pinnacle is the cafe Carlyle. This is so true hotel Carlyle in Manhattan. Bobby short of Keller some years lucky enough to see him there. Gosh. K mentally. Seriously, everybody don't come from New York would always come to Kate Middleton, but met you you sent me a tech thing, you know. Oh, by the way, we're going to be at at the broadcast, which again LA doesn't have a lot of stuff anymore products. A big that's a big about Rex club. It's it's amazing. If you ever get a chance to go, there's I if you're going to have a bad experience, you know, we we get to sing with this. Great band, the Tony Guerrero quintet, and it's just, you know, it's working with great musicians and people that you trust and people that sort of push you a little out of your comfort zone from time to time. You know, yuck. Oh back to us. Yes. Yes. Yes. So he went to this Philadelphia conservatory, right? And were you working at the same time? Or did you just do schoolwork? I worked too. I I waited tables. I was living at home I had some student loans. I was I was waiting tables at a place called the sixteenth street bar and grill. It's actually still there with the change the name and the one of the bartenders is still there on Sunday night since one thousand nine hundred ninety or business. The for the monks clarifiers something like that. But yeah, but yeah. So I was I was always on the hustle. And, but I, you know, I think I do think it's I do think that so much about any business. But particularly show biz is like the more you show up things come back to in ways that you don't even understand. But it really is. It's like every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Yeah. Yeah. Cast your bread upon the one. Yes. And you don't know if or when right right come back and repay you but often it does it does and the harder you work, the the I think there's a as long as it's smart enough. And it's not if you're working if you're not banging your head against the wall. And there's blood coming down. You know, you just have to be careful not to Brazil. Is interesting when I was a senior in in in in college. My aunt my mom's sister who had lived in Chicago since the early sixties she sent me a ticket to checkout second city and to stay with her because she thought it would be a good fit because right after graduation. I was working in a comedy club county group in Philadelphia we played a bunch of different clubs, but I was kind of getting the bug. And I and I I'll never forget my first time ever went to second city. We figured this out later. Jane Lynch was under studying for Bonnie hunt and Bonnie hunt came back for the improv set in her wedding dress to which was hilarious. I don't think the marriage lasted very long. But I'm just saying I mean, that's like I wo- you're making just, but it was like one of those things where I it was such a magical date because I remember Mike Myers came back in absence. Like, we've had these countries I've done the math afterwards. But I ended up studying it's second city, and I got hired was in the touring company. And I worked with Joel Solloway at the annoyance theater and McNair on these great people and got to do a bunch and just really sort of started my career in Chicago in such a great. Fun way where we did things that made fun of musicals and Lorne Michaels came, and I was up for us and L, but didn't get it. My friends at a friend that got it. Instead at first, thanks therapy. I'm okay about it. But at first I was like, oh my gosh. That's the that was the that's usually the end of that road. That's the dream. That's what you're ramping up toward. But I realized that they don't consider just anyone. So you just have to take it, you know, as as a sign you have to recognize the affirmation not the negative part. And I was waiting tables at Cape. Mentally, probably I want to say like twelve years after I got rejected from SNL. And I saw one of the producers Mike shoemaker who was on lunch with me. He was having lunch with Tina Fey is before she was really famous. She was just right around the show at the time. And he said hang in there. Don't give up and I think two or three years later, I got the office. So, you know, it's just those things it's, you know, it's it's I. I don't I don't I don't wish this path. I'm gonna sold. Listen, courage. Ing too young talent these days because it's so hard. I'm just. But it's you know. But again, it's like if you haven't up breadcrumbs have enough light. If you have enough good things to happen in good feeling good reviews than it's it's worth it. You know, I mean, I had some off Broadway stuff. In the meantime, I moved to New York to do no actually moved to LA to do a stage production of the movie valley of the dolls, and it ended up going off Broadway. So I went back to New York. So it was kind of a double thing. But you know, and it didn't pay very well. So I had two tables during the day. I was like h we playing Neely O'Hara. Is your stardust in New York? The starting chorus where my mom always says stop singing, give me my dinner. It's all the waiters and waitresses saying, of course. Can I get some more water? I'm so sorry. It's true. Love your number, man. I I was only a single waitress one day. And I thought the show was so horrible. And one person was like that was great other person's horrible sound like I'm out of there. I'm such on critic. I'm like I like, I don't. Like, I like, I don't. Yeah. Yeah. I I have to I couldn't do it. But you're saying again like being a part of second city is not smell. It was a great effort mansion again, another like radio. Yeah. And we know how many people came out of that and continue immediate. It's not like, yeah. Not still a big deal. No, absolutely. And obviously here in LA, we've UCB and UCB is in New York too. But like these rights, and they were showing us. I mean, the to Matt's used to work at the annoyance theater with me. And I knew them from second city. We're all so connected. Yes. Really? Yeah. There's an and that don't piss anybody off. We're gone say well don't act like to sh- back that was one of one of the many many many many many listens. I learned when I came out here for the first time working for entertainment tonight. I I went to a party they had a part for people who have already been fired from the show, and they fight it. Some people were still working on the show where they liked so that was a nice gesture to invite me, and I was. Talking with somebody who had just gotten cat and the producer who had fired him with standing six feet away. And I said to him I said at the tough being in the same room with the guy who who let you go. And he looked at me in the irony said, well, you know, you never know six months from now could be working for him again or we could be sitting side-by-side Jason desks. You'd never tell anybody screw off. You know, really smart person as we all I dream. Yeah. It just doesn't work. No, no. I wish we all could I that we get all the moment of going ethic. You actually get my restaurant job through the first season of the office. Because I didn't know if we're going to get picked up, of course. And so I remember when I actually gave my notice I think it'd been on and off for seven years, and my boss said we were going to get you a cake, but you'll be back. Wants back, but just as a customer. Do I still have dreams about having to pick up a shift? No, it's close. I'm not. How can you not have those? Yeah. It's it's so so events leading up to the office. A little well, I had I was in New York for three years after valley that for the whole valley of the dolls thing in total. And then I came back. I was also singing in a band with John Plattsburgh from they might be giants another band, mono puff. We would open for the giants. They were sort of an alternative on know puff. Yes. Yes. Yes. And we did a little recording with them, but we were sort of characters, and then I also had this comedy act on the lamp shades, which I start I started to do that in Chicago years before I was doing the character on my own at certain comedy clubs. But then my comedy partner. Scott Robinson was out here in LA. So when I moved back, we just decided to do it since two thousand one we we've actually been doing it. It's a dying lounge act. We do mashups of seventies and eighties songs, and we play a lot of comedy festivals and music festivals. And we play once a month. Now flappers in Burbank. We're we're I think we're opening for puddles petty party in nearly in may at the rose on may eighteen so we we do a lot of like because we do covers we we're very connected to the people that do comedy covers like. We've opened for Richard cheese, and the Dan band, we're kind of of that world. So that was kind of what was taking up most of my time. When I got back was the lampshades. It's just kind of building this thing. Are you Joe Stafford fan? Oh, sure. Sure. That's my dad loves the all the darling Edwards recordings. Oh, I got. I gotta listen to you. Now. Yeah. I gotta I gotta check it out Jack because we do like, I mean, you know, we do things that we were. We were almost on mad TV. They hired us for four songs. Like we're going to be out for four weeks in a row. And then they realized they couldn't afford the song whites. So this was like. And and then I was doing some guest. Starring I I'd been on Bernie MAC, I was on curb your enthusiasm as a cop. I think all my lines got cut, but I made a face. So I gotta laugh theme of things to come. But. But yeah, I think it was just like that sort of chugging away. But I was I just I remember like I always had a flyer in my pocket at the restaurant. So I invited people, and I remember Howard Morris who's to come from time to tell you such a sweet guy, if you remember him from your show of shows, and of course, Andy Griffith, and the voice of like every cartoon character in the sixties like Adamat and jug head and everything just I mean, the greatest so I feel like I had some some support and some angels. And then, you know, I basically just auditioned for the office and got it which I mean, I just for the pilot didn't get the pilot because I addition for different part. And then I ended up replacing somebody from the pilot. So so crazy. So you never you never know. Then you find yourself one step at a time that I get a job. Yes. Good thing. A job, right. Then you meet your on samba. Yes. And I already knew Steve crawl because I knew him from second city. We went out in the same cast. But we were but I knew him. Yeah. All right. Tell us about fitting into and getting to know your your your cast mates. Well, so interesting Greg Daniels are show runner on the office. He asked us to bring as much paperwork as possible to actually look like we were doing office work. He wanted the cameras to be free to catch anyone anytime just doing their job. So I brought tax stuff. I brought some writing I've Arkham Peter's didn't work the first season. But I just remember, you know, so I I didn't do a lot of I have that many lines on first season. But it was it was really like watching the master at work Seve corral is I mean, he is he's an amazing actor not above and beyond being an improviser. He is such a great actor, and he makes so many different choices for each. I've never seen. Somebody have such a. Bag of of just ideas that are just acceptable to him a not he's just fearless. Would just try something else next taker whenever and rainn Wilson who is closer to his character that he admits he doesn't allow about about. Really interesting, very wonderful specific actor who who again makes crosses Jonkers is get the big names career. Just adorable smart. You know, really, you know, wanting to play Jennifer, I mean, just lovely, and I I knew Angela Kinsey to we were all chick improv group called bitch planet like before that at prevalent west on on Hollywood Boulevard, so already knew her Oscar, and I had mutual friends because he was from the groundlings, and there's some crossover second city some fistfights in the parking lot over that. But yeah. And then, you know, so it was kind of like these this cast was unfolding, but it was sort of like, I I wasn't sure what to expect. And also when you replace somebody, then you realize you're replaceable. So I really was on my ferry best behave, but it was you know, I dig it to improvise during the first season and just a little bit. But it was like something that sock. Can actually made a little bit of a splash. It was during the alliance is the healthcare episode where we were challenging him. And I it was, you know, an night said like the universe is different from John. I still have a join us. I'm saying vagina and your podcast. But it was a thing. Where like our our our show at our remember seeing him at the restaurant afterwards. He saw me the restaurant. He completely ignored the fact that I was working, and he said, I'm going back and forth and forth. They they I don't know if they're gonna let me use the word vagina. But the I love it. And I'm I'm hoping it says, I'm really really fighting to keep that scene in. So it was I love that. He just it was just it was like, I just ran into him. And he had no judgment about me being in this hideous white outfit with town. You know? And that's the thing. It's like this. And there are some people that I would see at the restaurant. Some directors. I worked with who almost looked at me like I had a disease all of a sudden. And you know, it's like, it's that's on them. And I luckily I was old enough to just be like, you know, what I'm resigned like this is this is what I'm doing. But you know, I mean, I I also had worked a brunch that you're I I had ten or chooses on a tray slipped and fell all the orange juice all over me over me had to run back in other. No one had cleaned up the spot where I felt again twice. And I remember that was one actors tape actress. But I'm not going to tell you who it is. There were so annoyed with me, and the this actress wife said year discussed and I said, you're right. I am this. And that I remember I went to beaches straits table and Beatrice had had some dementia. But she had the great kind of dementia where she was really lovely. She said. My god. She said you look beautiful. So, you know, there were some silver lagged thing is like anytime anything funky happens. It you know, you just have to pick yourself up, whatever. I just go back the third whatever we can do to process it. And so so season two. Yes. We we actually I actually heard the job. Yes. And then they will. They're about six of us that we were technically guest stars. Even though we had a desk. So sure there was a suspicion that you know. I mean, they could have just plopped a red wig on somebody and just never had a turn around. So thank God. They did not go that way. But we actually got actual contracts joint while we were shooting the boost cruise episode which was so weird because we were down in Long Beach on this. You know, we were literally on a boat for the whole week staying in Long Beach because the hours were crazy, and we were on this like dinghy getting us back and forth in the fog of thinking. Oh my God. We're gonna die couldn't see anything. But it was you know, but it was that was sort of. The moment where you're like. Oh, this and then Steve had done a forty year old virgin it came out. He did it right after the pilot. He it came out between right at the beginning of shooting season two, and it was huge. I don't remember this huge massive. I remember at the opening every funny comic act. Every funny lead guy came to remember welfare. Was there? Ben Stiller on the Jim Carey was it was like all these people were just checking him out. Yeah. It was really wild. And I remember having this feeling in the parking lot at the light. When I went to get my car, and I was like something big is about to happen. And I think that somehow we're getting affected by this. And boy boy will be affected by you know, I mean just to suddenly become the darlings of the network and to have just such a huge fan base, you know, relatively quickly. But but but but right size like Likud directly like everything. Was you know, we we weren't a flash in the pan. Right. Yeah. And then you know, so every every season had challenges. I I did have a lot of times where I didn't have a line in the table rate. And then they would give me my stuff afterwards. And you know, I I learned pretty quickly not count lines because sometimes actors do that. And they'll they'll fight they'll go in with a wanna meet with the writers. But I had this feeling that I was one of the few people that was used for my physical comedy, and they were doing it. So well that I thought you know, what it's it's whatever this is worth the wait, whatever this is like, I don't have to push. We'll see what happens. I mean, there'd be like sometimes it'd be to episodes, right Eileen. I I said one word, and of course, when we shoot it. I'd be like, you know. But, but it was it was always felt like there was some wonderful chess game that the writers were doing with this character. So season four starts with Michael Scott coming in the parking lot looking at the the documentary camera and he hits Meredith he hits by character. So I actually got like I got to do my own son. I hit the glass fell off the top of the car, and they call me that week. I was on the tonight show for the first time. It was like and my boyfriend who I met on the show during the end of season to actually in the middle of the seeds do, but he didn't ask me. I don't wanna he came to my comedy. I came to the lamp shades. We started dating between season two and three he was filling in four because he had been a Jay leno's photographer. He's the he's the chiefs deals guide NBC. So he was just happened to be working on the tonight show the day that I just haven't. So it was like I was filling in for Joaquin Phoenix. I think so thank you walking. Thanks for not being. But yeah. So it was so so not only was like not only did I get a show. I got a guy. And then suddenly we were acknowledged on television by Jay Leno. They put the cameras on him. It was just so crazy, and and wonderful. But you don't luckily, I was in my forties. So you're saying everything that you're saying comes with age in the best sense. Oh, explain for people. Who might not understand? Why do you say? Luckily, I was in my forty because you just see there's so many young kids that get jobs at a young age. They get TV shows or movies, and they think it's gonna last forever. The ego. Suddenly is driving the train, and they're not paying attention to any signals. There's no sense of the the longevity. The you know, the care that you have to take care of yourself to be around for a long time. It's not an accident. You have to have a great team. You have to have good people around you, you have to be, you know, relatively sane or or have the tools to stay a stain as possible and hopefully as positive as possible because nobody wants to work with the number one on the call sheet, that's a nightmare in. But that's I always tell I I was spoiled by my dad because he's a really nice person. Right and everyone likes him. And so the thing is what I saw was. Okay. You treat people. Well, they. Like you and then good things happen. And so for me, even at a young age. I had no tolerance right for the people. Who would come in look being at AT? They would have you know, my night guy. And sure it'll be a new host because we found you yesterday. Right. And they'd be gone in whatever it was. So you see it or the people that would step over DynCorp suit to job. Yeah. That which is a huge lovely phenomenon about this visits. But yeah, it it it's real. And I think you know. I think it started from Greg Daniels to who's a very sane Showrunner. Very smart. And a lot of them are sponsored he he had a a certain humility, and Steve Carell had a certain humility. He's very shy guy. A show was always more important than him. He was never holding court. Never holding anybody hostage to hear his jokes or any of that kind of stuff, and he really made sure people started laughing or something, and we were taking too long to do a sane because of that he'd say that he just kind of reminds like because it we're all in the same team. And I always felt like there was a fake non hierarchy on our set. Which of course, there's a hierarchy, but they pretended like there wasn't. So it was very felt very much like a family because we were on that same room a lot. So when information got imparted most of us knew about it all at the same time. Which is it's a lovely. It's a lovely thing. It really is so respect. Yeah. It's really do. You feel the show improved that you feel that it. Grew from we had great movie directors that came in. We had herald Ramos who did a number of episodes. We had Jason Reitman. We had we had Jj Abrams who is to wait on who've remembered me solve me at the Emmys and said you used to be our waitress we're so happy for you. I mean, there were some great people. We had. Joss Weeden who happened. A direct the episode where I had my head would just kind of ironic because of the Buffy thing. We had Jon Favreau who I knew from the second city days. He was actually a hosted second city. But you know, we should be on the same improv team. We did Manson the musical together at the annoyance all these full circle things. But really, it's that sense that you know, people were really wanting to work on this. And then obviously the last years we had bigger names on the show. We had Idris Elba. Right. Wasn't quite the superstar is now. But he was so great to work with Kathy Bates, of course. And we had James spader. Who was extremely intimidating because every time I saw him. I saw every I could see. You know? I mean, it's just a human. Now. What did those directors bring to the table? He know what I feel like they just elevated. They it's like they just. It was like a spotlight on everything that was already right about the show. They didn't really try to reinvent it. But they honored it by wanting to play. And I think they really. Were fans to which is crazy whilst what they've done it. Exactly. Yeah. Yeah. They didn't have to yet for sure. So it was you know, I mean, and and as a former second city person like I remember seeing how Ramos at the fiftieth anniversary and feeling like, oh my gosh. I I now know now worked with our Ramos like somebody pinch me, you know. It's just you know, these, and again, I think being in my forties and also just having. I mean, I've definitely had some tough times. And some humility I mean system really humbling experiences in this business, and I slept on couches in New York for a really long time. I you know, I I shared my money with an ex-boyfriend extra credit cards with them. And just like it was the biggest mistake, and I had some some undoing to do. But I felt like at least I knew I was always, you know, in a safe place in on the right track. And the gifts were clearly there. I just had to kind of do do whatever it took to just stay in their hanging there. You'll go through strikes me about the office, and your character particular. But I mean, everybody on the show the word. Fearless comes. I mean, you know, really, and truly I didn't get a lot of notice when I was asked to be topless or do a stunt. There wasn't a lot of notice. So so it was sort of like are you in or you're out, which is great? I would have you know, like, I I would have liked a few more days if I was, you know, topless because I wanted to lose a little weight muscle by back didn't look fat. But whatever that's my vanity insanity. But they got it wasn't HP. This is not HBO. So thank God. You know? We're just dealing with some thank God. But, but yeah, I think I, and I think that that's that's part of the team the part of being in a teen. Tune being in a family you understand what people are capable of. And you trust them to do that. I did not shave my head. They asked me shake my head, and I didn't. But we ended up having a good call on. Yeah. We we had a great guy that did the Star Trek movie bald cap for that one. And at at French he teaches many people how to do it. So we had the creme de LA creme. I have new respect for scifi, folks. After that experience. I expect for hours in two and a half hours to get it out because of all the wax by your heroin. But it was just a again. It was great psychic. Absolutely, absolutely. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. No, no. And I I think it's just I think it's just trusting like there was such a mutual sense of trust. You knew that they weren't going to do anything that wasn't for a purpose and absolutely absolute- weren't going to embarrass you. No, no. No, no, you're carriage. Right. Well, maybe. It's your character in the context of the show. Right. Yeah. Which very different out there in a way that wasn't safe. This is true. This is true. And I I really understood I learned so much about the balance of you know, because we couldn't Provis sometimes. But you really I really learned like when it would be effective. And when it was just kind of, you know. Hijacking. Something you know, what? I mean. I I watched the masters. Do it regular, you know? Sure. Sure. Rain in an occasional. When I did I understood when it was time to do it when it was time to to go there. And when it wasn't and kind of learning that balance? So, you know, so if I talked to students in, you know, talked a lot of acting students I always like to talk about, you know, so it was I had to learn it on the job. But you might wanna learn this ahead of time. So if you do and provides make sure you do it when your character speaks as opposed to like when you're off Cameron somebody has to it does it has to make sense as to be in the context of you can't change the story line. You can't you know. I mean, it's odd that that would actually go, you know, that that would make it into an episode and respect is a huge piece of that is respect which is in anything you do at a little fear. Well, if no fear, no. Ventured. Nothing gained fear is part of the ingredient rice. This is true. If you weren't intimidated by some of the things you had to do there, you we'd be considered him for you. You couldn't give them performance. You do this is right. And I wouldn't be in this glamorous studio on Sunset Boulevard now. Well. I know this is a vistas this view here is one of the concrete walls I've ever seen him. Well, dial confess to you that sometimes Kate. We get distracted from our guest by the scenery out that window. It's true. It's just you know, I it's pretty spread the coke cans, clearing shades. Having this room. That's a different movie jets. This dust has found this floor. Classic talk about recognition of people start to recognize you. I'm the office because it was such a popular. Yes. You're on such such a long time. Yes. How'd that took start to play with your head? Well, luckily. It it started. When people just wanted to buy me a drink because I've played drunk, so. That's actually pretty a pretty great intro to suddenly becoming recognizing famous. I remember being nervous at one point or over. There was a little overwhelmed. I've never been on the boardwalk in ocean city where I'd been a million times or on the train from downtown Philadelphia to see my parents, unlike suddenly feeling like people were just these students would come up, and I remember having a little bit of what's happening. But also realize I'm not Britney Spears. No one's no one's free. It's fine. And someone had knocked on my dad's door because they saw me go in wasn't home. And I remember being like, what do they shouldn't have on the door just because my dad's older, and I just didn't want him to have to you know. Yeah. Yeah. And I felt like my dad's just if they come by just go and talk to just kind of went in a good way. Like, they there be you know, it's not it's it's just like get over yourself. And also just remember that it it may be the fifth time the fiftieth time, I've talked to somebody that's recognized me that day, but it's that person's first time and that really. Have a connection. And I'm also as a waitress I I remember every once in a while taking a chance and complementing a star. And sometimes that was a big mistake, you know, and I remember getting kind of stepped on and like, okay, I'll never do that again. But you know, it's so you live and learn, and and and I think it's something that you make peace with and I feel like actress who get recognized a lot who haven't made peace with it. It's like you need a new therapist or something to work it out because it's champagne problem champagne, problem, whatever anxiety that's around it. There's something about it. That is getting inflated. That's it's it's not real. You know what I mean? It's not it's fine. It's fun. I'm not. No, I'm not I'm not a pop star. But you know, what I'm saying is balanced to it. All I said, he didn't mind that on certain days when he gets recognized multiple times we'll be somewhere because it's not every day. It's not all of them critic, if you're, you know, for some people they grew up with him some people don't know who he is. It's okay. But when we'll have a day where people just, you know. Oh my God. Oh my God. I'll say to him afterwards. I remember this from when we're having a shitty time later on and we're stressed or whatever it is. Remember all the people that came up today. And he, of course, he's not, you know, talking about logging onto your, you know, it it's not an ego. Not even. He's not an ego maniac. But it's the kind of thing where it's like when you have a day like that you go see this is what I remember. I mean, you said to me. Hi, I'm Kate Flannery. I was on the show, and I'm like, no, I know, I know I don't assume because you don't know you never want to be the goes g you're no help hip hop back. Yeah. Yeah. YM? If you have to ask the question, you know, who I you know, the I wish I were. I know I I am John Christine. Cinzia Ryan now, let's get back to a one key topic here movies. Yes. Some of your all time favorite movies. And why are they do you find the favorites are ones that you saw the kid and you maintain that love for them a lie? Allot aren't yes. There's a lot of that some that I re- I saw I saw as a kid didn't get it. Now, I get a tree grows in Brooklyn is one of those. I mean, I just I I literally I saw at the festival a couple of years ago. And I got to talk to Ted Donaldson mealy the sun, but I used to wait on Dorothy McGuire, when she was she was not well or she didn't issues not engage you she was always with the nurse. And but she was so beautiful even in her old age. She's just gorgeous high cheekbones. But that's Irish story is so it's it's I mean, obviously. James Dunn's performance. I can't I all I have to do is think about the song any lab telling you, and I was inconsolable in the theater Leonard I sought member they at the festival sometimes there's a movie that that that is popular they'll they'll show it again on a Sunday show. So I missed the first one, and I got to the Ankor. I I literally I couldn't stop crying. I was the noisiest crier. I was that person in the dark. I there's something about, but, you know, it's it's it's just there's, but there's there's something about the storytelling, and that's illegal San right? I'm like, oh my God. What a great first movie. But I think there's just there's there's a the shared collected on conscious that we're all sharing watching these movies, and everyone has their own they bring their own experience. I mean, my dad owned a bar. My dad had the rooms above the bar his character the character of James Gleason was much more. Like my dad like then. Than than the bartender. You know Howard to silver in the last weekend. I love that James Gleason character mister McShane offered. The kids a job at the bar when their father died of the drink that was that was my dad. My dad, literally somebody broke into my dad's station wagon and fell asleep. My dad gave that guy a job and a place to live for the next thirty five years that is just my dad. So there's something and it's so Irish, and it's universal. But universal. Yes. Absolutely. Yeah. There was some specific things. But yes. What a great performance rest. Yeah. Absolutely. And you know, and and I love the Joe Blondel's in doing something that Joan doesn't always do. She's a little ditzy, which was great. Yeah. But yeah, I mean, there's I've so and there's so many musicals that I just. I just there. It's like, I I have a need to it's like recharging the battery room, or you know, water I need to go back to the well. Yeah. And they and they always fuel. Yes. The recharge those bats, they do and they give you. The sustenance. Yes, true. They remind you why you got. Why fell in love with movies? Absolutely. Absolutely. I mean, there's such a healing quality. And it's funny. I remember seeing Ben Mankiewicz his wife Li I just came out of her screening of barefoot in the park. And she didn't know what movie I saw. And she said, oh, did did you cry at the last movie, and I was like, no. That I said no we did. I did. I cried during the credits the song it just brought back so many members. I just remember being my living room. I thought oh my gosh. Like, that's that's the thing. It also being in the dark with a bunch of people who all are invested in that has such a power all yet. See seen the film not just what any audience, but with the simpatico audience. Yep. Boy does that make a difference. They showed some years ago. Seven brides for seven brothers, our favorite movie and the two of us trying not to sing along. And the thing is you could hear everyone around you doing the exact same with this sort of like muffled like grid everybody wanting to sing. And it felt so I've been lucky enough to see it a few times on a big screen. But man, it just doesn't get better than sitting with all those people. It's so true. We meet we got to meet the lead, the lovely. Oh, my God, my mom, and I plots backstage James how to eat my, Jane, pal. Oh my God. I didn't even we've photo me. Mom and her just like the faces of God. All life. It was amazing. I mean, it's it's real. I mean, I used to work at kitman only on the Monday nights when the academy would go through those every year every week would be a different best picture. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. What what would happen? First time. They would they would speak before the movie, they do Acuna, and then they would come to the restaurant because they've seen it a million times. I would wait on the last four people that were still alive from gone with the wind. Back when I'd wait on Chita Rivera, and George Harry. Wait. So I would all the people that were just like. Oh, yeah. And then everyone would convene afterwards. But that to me was I just I the great, and it was amazing. And then I remember waiting on Nancy Sinatra with her mother Nancy senior shoes referred to Jean Martin and deana Martin. And you know, and even though the men are gone. You know, the royalty lives on. I remember. There was some waitress who was too busy. And I said, you know, what let me just take them over. You don't even know who you're waiting on. You know? But but yeah. But it's I mean, there's so many great performances by Frank Sinatra. I I I'm such a fan of for from here to return again movie. I saw when I was a little bit didn't really get and just having an understanding of a pro harbor and just like the actual event and the way that the they're conscious is opened like, oh my gosh. We're actually going to be at war. This is happening. And also, the the the interact, you know, just how awful. Oh my gosh. What's wrong with me? What a great performance. Well, you know, you know, the story he always used to kill. He always tell the story about a. I think Frank Sinatra junior said to his dad when I saw that movie as young person I want to kill that guy. When I if I removed that guy I want to kill him and his father said, no, no, no you kiss him. Help me when enough. That is so. I hope I'm telling it. Right. Fantastic. Work the spirit awards every year and tidily was there. And it was that kind of thing where she got out. She arrived early one of the few that arrived early. And I'm losing Madame mind. Everyone's like, what's the wise? Was like I used to wait on her. She used to get a butterscotch sundae. Honestly, I didn't have the guts to go over. I really wanted to. But I couldn't I just couldn't. 'cause I knew what was going to come out with Ryan bid bed bed. Sometimes. That's okay. I mean, I don't know. I mean, I've I've had experiences where people are super emotional. And also realize I'm representing so many people to happens. I mean, we connect to the projects we connect to. It's not just the actors, and you know, I feel like. As a as a as an actress who I literally could have been just a recurring character on the like, it's I love it. Like just getting to have a presence onscreen, no matter what if I speak or not it's like, there's still some gravitas to an in this happens in many many movies, too, as we know. But it's it's I think it's just that. That collective love and respect. And but whenever the emotion is that that comes up with the movie and everybody a part of it carries that so they better not be too. Big. You sure know, what do you have a scorecard? Tuck to a your mind boy. Oh boy. But what what actually what great experiences? Yes. Yeah. In the bad ones. Absolutely. Not lost on me. Yeah. Certainly it certainly is a postgraduate course in human nature. Absolutely. Yes. Because you do learn a lot about people when you wait on them. And it's interesting. I was literally at a premiere last week. I think for the movie the chaperone, and I ran into someone who I used to wait on who was not very nice to me at all not nice to meet at all. They don't remember that isolate on them, and they just don't even the office. And she just kept wanting to talk to me. And I thought I I'm not I would never spend your food or smell now. I don't I don't wish you ill. But I'm not gonna talk to you, treat me like governor shoe. I mean, there is there's a there's a thing, you know, and some people I feel like if I have no memory of you than you were fine. But you're either wonderful or you're the worst because I sweat on Mel Brooks, and and Bancroft, and they would have dinner with Stella Bryner. And carliner. They were the greatest though, never even if there was a problem with the table. Never not great. Never not wonderful. Never never. So I talked to Mel last year. We're on a first name basis that. Oh got. Yeah. He was at the festival last year. I got to talk to her about it. But yeah. Yeah. So there's there's there there are the good stories too. Yeah. Okay. We're so glad you're here. Give me the CD is. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. 'cause I. Are you chewing? I am Jane Lynch, and I did this Christmas album swing a little Christmas. But it came out of this non Christmas act that we have we're kind of like the rat pack with a couple of broads. So we're we're singing there's some fun. It's not like a hostage situation. You know, you're not strapped to the concert hall where everything is ballot. And but we're actually playing I think we're playing in Minneapolis next month and Janesville, Wisconsin. You can go to Jane Lynch efficiency the dates and official Fischl. Yeah. And then we did a huge Christmas tour this last year, we did twenty three cities thirty two shows in in thirty thirty two days on a tour bus. We were literally on the tour bus, which is in our fifties. Cool but old but the album is wonderful. And I feel like if you're having a rough day there's a lot of musical references on its jazz Christmas album. Okay. Where do people follow you? You can follow me on Twitter at Kate Flannery on Instagram at the real Kate Flannery because as a fake K plan of it, just go to rotate. Yeah. And then I still do the lamp shades. You can go. To the lampshades dot com for any info about our live shows there too. And yeah. Yeah. My boyfriend actually shot I say, he's a he's he's shot up is useful to have around this. He actually worked on one film. He was actually in a scene with Robert deniro. He got to help set up the lighting, and what is the movie called? It's with Bruce. Oh, what just happened? Okay. Which I think is I think it's Barry Levinson. I'm not sure anyway. But yet my my boyfriend Chris is actually and Christmas inefficiently with me of the he's in the finale the office, he plays the photographer when they reveal PAM's mural in the the in the warehouse, and then he's dancing with Meredith at Dwight naturals wedding in front of Michael, Scott and Dwight dancing, so he's getting recognized for being on the show because there's so many super fans it's office really has this like because of not flexing Nick at night, and how many central is in good shows last. Well, this is true. But this is a particularly different. I think the internet just that the the streaming thing has a whole different thing. Because I always say like if you're in a hospital, and you don't have access to. The remote. Now, you may have seen the office. Now, it's on cozy TV, and it's like, oh my gosh. Still awesome. I know how we Frazier comes on the sure shows that I work. We're talking Frazier. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. The office is it's an easy show to have on. It's a fun show to have on.

NFL Training Camp News & Notes, Gerald McCoy, Dez Bryant, Hard Knocks Recap

"GM. Shuffle is presented by draftkings the leader in daily. Fantasy. Sports. All right. We're GONNA talk about Gerald McCoy. We're GONNA talk about Joe Judge got plenty of football talk Lamar Jackson Dez Bryant. There's a whole lot of football conversation plus I went to see Frank Sinatra's hometown at his birthplace in Hoboken New Jersey. But here's what we're going to begin the NBA playoffs. How about Dame Lillard the blazers knock off the Lakers last night big upset in game one and how `Bout Mom Hens Philadelphia Seventy sixers. That's right. Michael Lombardi case you know is a die hard fan of the up seventy sixers. And Joel Embiid with this performance in Game One listened Boston wins the game and embiid did not score the final eleven minutes and forty six seconds. He said afterwards I got to be better well yeah. No kidding. He had literally one assist in game five turnovers as well and be was a guy who clearly a Melissa. Espn Mike the first thing that says the Celtics will attempt once again to wear down six or star Joel embiid this is a guy it was the leading scorer and rebounder with twenty six and sixteen but. After that game one defeat how head-scratching dwelling beat the fact he'd disappeared late in the game, you know the hardest thing for me in life is I love the seventy sixers and everything that I'm about as as a management and coaching, and I truly believe to the core of who I am and you can call me Bella check in I take a and if you do I, take that with great pry. Everything that I believe in embiid's the opposite of and it makes it. So frigging hard to root for the team. It makes it so hard for me to do it because I everything starts with being the best and every time I watch him beat I think of the Bronx, Tale. I think of just wasted talent right and so I wrote this column the other day for the daily coach about underachievers and I think people truly don't understand what an underachiever is. Right. So it's this. We see this great talent right and and and the media goes all Jolie. He's the best player on the court. They got the best player you know. Okay Great. Well, he doesn't work hard and he doesn't compete all the time. So how is he the? Best Player on the team he under achieves at every instance, his conditioning is atrocious I mean it's beyond and so again, why do you think he doesn't score in the fourth quarter? Why do you think he goes eleven minutes without the basket without making a basket? Qazis, fucking tired. He's exhausted. He needs a blood transfusion at halftime because he's Abbas shaped like if somebody would write that crap if somebody would attack them and they do Barclay attacks them shack attacks. And everybody says, well, he's talented. He's talented and I recommend watching the Bronx Tale seriously. There's nothing worse than wasted talent like and I can make this prediction here as painful. It is. They will never win. They won't reach conference final with Joel. EMBIID on the team they will never do it. There's no chance in fact, it's so bad for me. Now I don't even get worked up I'm indifferent to it. And I love what I love is. I love his quotes the next day to do better oh. Really well, last year you were crying with your girlfriend saying you're going to do better how bring pitcher up I told somebody high ranking in the seventy sixers If I if I was GM of the sixers. Taking that picture of him, kissing his girlfriend and crying after Toronto game and I would a placid that son of a bitch all over the walls of the building because if it means this much to you get your fat ass in here and stop being Chubby, you can take a lot in life right? You can take certain frustrations you can take setbacks but if you're a professional athlete and the guys in tiptop conditioning that is incredibly frustrating. People say well, it's a tough thing. Yeah I get. I'd like to lose twenty pounds to a professional athlete. I don't have trainers I don't have. Chefs around me like the fact that that's the issue for embiid when I look at the stat line, Mike, There's a big thing. It's so deceiving because you can in he put a twenty six and sixteen more. Do you want but one assist versus a game-high five turnovers and most importantly as you said, he did nothing when it mattered most like he's scored early in the down and that's just fatigued because of what a lack of conditioning. strating and everybody covers up for him. I mean he I wanna be able to my next book. Not Not. Already raining the next book, but the book after that is going to be how the how the media creates stars no matter and they overlook everything. So they never get to the root of the problem they see but they never observe the they don't understand the root of the problem and I'm not attacking the media but at some point call call it now I know he's a great quote and I know he's friendly and you've got to cover the team. But at some point quick blame Brett Brown who's trying to maneuver this. Thing that guys best friends with the one of the owners, right so he's got complete autonomy to do whatever he wants. You know he behaves in different ways and so you know he he does it really ever get in shape. Oh I'm in the best shape of my life literally your half exhausted by his first quarter production to his fourth quarter production. I mean seriously look at that you know and so I just to me, there's like two three things that are just before we get into football that I hit the other one ad is. Is College. Football. Look wrote a column for the Athletic I'm not sure there's a right answer, but the more we keep digging into this and you can share. Your experience from baseball, but the more we dig into this and the more I see the behavior of college kids on their college campuses. I have a hard time understanding why we're not having college football. Yeah. Listen I was looking the other day the major league stats all had the Marlins had that outbreak Oh man I'm like and I got it. Yeah cartilage. Yeah, of course. I mean, listen these guys are asymptomatic. Is it concerned? Of course, baseball's to the right thing guy test positive? You shut down you postpone a couple games you make up doubleheaders you make it work in an overall the numbers. Mike. Seen the summer derosa point two percent of the guys tested positive. Would you shut down anything in life because a point two percent? Would you shut down a manufacturing plant is a point two percent? No, you wouldn't, and it's like in the case of college football I understand the big ten. PAC twelve, we're trusting those doctors who told them listen? This is too risky, etc. But I think in many ways the more I look at the situation the fact that big twelve, the ACC the SEC's it. Okay. Let's not just follow suit. Let's look at what our doctors saying and look at the health risks, and here's the point that I do think is excellent, which is this college athletes college personnel left to their own devices. There's nothing going on dude you're GONNA get after it. Let's go have a few drinks. Do you think they're gonNA quarantine for four months with no stool or do you think they have a better chance if they're playing football and their coach whether it's Nick Sabin or whomever is saying listen here's what you're accountable for for every single part of the day understand there's no time to waste be screwing around doing other things. We're going to keep you away from this virus as best as possible. Here are very strict protocols I mean I. Remember talking fair extracurricular activities should help a student athlete. So thereby wouldn't playing football a player reasoning motivation and incentive to not get sick I. Mean Look think about this. This is by borrowing somebody told me this today and it's just blew my mind. They're going to have high school football in the state of Ohio. The University of Cincinnati is going to have football. The Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland browns will be playing football in the state of Ohio and yet the Ohio state. The most important football program in the state is not playing football. Think about that. The most important program in the state decides not to play football. For reasons, they won't give for reasons they won't give and look I wrote the column but I'm with you extracurricular activity like if I were a parent and I had a young man, I want him to be under some kind of supervision left to left to their own devices. Now, these kids at North Carolina can blame the school they want but they're the ones who are the ones hanging out I mean we see it around Ocean city all the time I mean you know you can't these kids think. They think they're vulnerable to this disease like seriously. So now you give them more time with nothing to do that seems to me like a recipe to be a disaster, trust me with my four boys the other two I was so grateful we got Summer Baseball here in New Jersey. My other son's able to go taekwondo class where wearing masks were social distancing were not high five be smart all the protocols, of course. We're all taking this seriously but to wipe something entirely away I just used frustrating speaking of being wiped away. Let's dive in football here. Shall We Ryan Fitzpatrick according to the Athletics Josh Tolentino Fitzpatrick's The guy fits magic. He's expected to be the dolphins week. One. Star. When they faced England in the regular season opener, the club continues to take a cautious approach with their prized rookie i. only this is a shock, Mike. Listen people and Dolphins. I'm sure they want to right away but you let Fitzpatrick Star and then let to come in at some point but your reaction to the fact that probably going to be official to be sitting to start the season I mean he has to sit here and take it any hits the Games moving at lightning speed right now down there for him and and I don't think you can truly. Evaluate them until you until he's had some, I think what we've seen so far in the little bit of football that we've had is we've seen that these offseason programs not being around really hurt a lot of players. It hurts physically I mean because look the reality of it is worth seeing a lot of injuries without having preseason games. We could talk all we want about how preseason games are just injuries I know this When I would walk out the practice for training camp, I would hold my breath because I was scared to death of the injuries. And yet when we had practice during the season, I, was never worried about injuries. I never worried about you know we still we have sixty five guys you know practicing you know now you while these say well, there's only eighty guys no, no, no no. No. Literally eighties enough players to have a practice with right because the last ten or the ones that get everybody else hurt from eighty one, the ninety most of those guys are not good enough and they're on the ground and they. Get somebody hurt so it isn't because the roster's got reduced it's because we haven't had it off season again, it goes back to Ohio state. If you don't have some of these guys, it off-season programs where they're training their body getting their body ready to fight you know like it's boxers right? You can't have a you can't fight a fight without sparring. You can't get ready to play football unless you do football drills and I think we're seeing a rash of injuries up and you know. What happens Gerald. McCoy. Hyper extended his knee while could happen on any plate. Yeah. It could. He started two years old I think that's the other key teams that are old teams that are old and they go old camp. They're not going to be really good come November December. Let's go back to Joe quite talk further about that because people are not going to crush the cowboys rents. Other cut McCoy but that's a situation where listen health is a permanent importance if he can't go, you can't go right right. So you're only allowed. So it's ridiculous and this again is completely a bad story, right? So they cut your McCoy. No, they really didn't. All they did is they they needed to remove them from their eighty man roster so when they wave him They remove him from there. Eighty man roster they waived him designated injured. No one's going to touch them. So he goes, and now he goes on there I are list. So it's a procedural move. It's all it is a procedural move, but everybody is so anxious for I got break this story I want to increase my twitter followers by ten people. So I break the the cowboys cut journal McCoy, and of course, you read the geniuses how cold is seriously stop right? Like they did it so that they could add a player to their team and still hang on the McCoy. So McCoy goes to their I are he doesn't count as one of their eighty players in camp. And they can add another player. So they cut McCoy, they go down to seventy nine nothing happens to McCoy's life. He stole earns game checks he still gets his rehab he still procedural move you know and so that's why they needed to do that and people don't understand it. They just start all that's cold. How could they be so cold? It's like get the story I get understand what's going on in tears interested in what's going on how about the story involving the chargers here as well by the we're going to talk about hard knocks a little bit later on two episodes. Now on the books for the chargers avoiding distraction, they reached some the pro bowl defensive ends this month and now boasts is supporting. Melvin. Ingram. WHO's sitting out over his contract he attended the team's second padded practice of training camp Tuesday in Costa Mesa but again did not participate in drills. Bosa said we've talked a little bit. I. Have to say I'm going to support him. He's going to make the best decision. For Him and his family I have faith in him. He's GonNa make the right decision entering the final season of a four year sixty, four, million dollar deal ingram now dissatisfied the deal because of what? Bosa just received were at thirty one, he can become an unrestricted free agent next year charters up several other pending big-name free agents. We know Mike Klis when it comes to guys at the thirty plus right running backs, you're not going to get paid the way you want to Ingram frustrated. What do you think you know look I don't know what Thom Tillis goes thinking. I mean to me if I've got a player who's in camp but he's not doing. Anything. Then what's he doing here in camp like at some point now I've opened the door up to everybody else to to say, okay, I'm going to have a protest within a team like how does this work right? So like I get, Ingram's underpaid get Ingram's GonNa be a free agent, but also Ingram signed a you know he's got another year now are they engaging in deal to to extend him out if they are and they've given him obviously that given him some form of permission to do this because this just alienates the team I mean this separates the team from. Okay. If I want a new contract I'll come I won't get fined because if I hold out I'm, GonNa, get fined. So I don't want to get fired I to lose that money, but I'm going to come in. I'm going to hold out anyway you know that's subversive from within right? That's as Bill parcells once said, you know that's communistic subversive from within and so you can't have that. So I don't know how they're going to do it. I mean, look the the they need ingram to play at a high level. They need both of the play at a high level, their two of their best players last year they didn't play to the level especially on third down when this defense didn't play anywhere near what it would be so. I mean for me if I'm Lesko I'm either there's either got to be some kind of written agreement. I would be scared to death about the rest of my football team at deficits a bad precedent the guys there. But he's not actually practicing. You're just hanging out. Yeah. I'M NOT GONNA play but I'm here guys. You see you know what? What is this? Love Boat I mean is this love boat we're going to have the skipper come in I mean gas Gavin Macleod coming in we're going to get the bartender Ted's going to feed it. I mean seriously what does this love bowed? We got happy hour at four thirty GONNA play a little shuffleboard seriously like what are we doing here and have a Boeskov? What else are you going to say team was actually I don't support I think it's bullshit that he's not actually play I. Think he should. GET, out. Here. Practicing. Properly. Dez Bryant Free Agent Wide Receiver reportedly in the Baltimore area for a workout with the Ravens Lamar Jackson was asked of a possible playing with three time Pro Bowler we've got a lot of great receivers in the team right now it's up the phenomenon but seeing desperate on instagram stuff like that running his routes competing against quarterback he's looking pretty good on social media if the. Front Office Lights, and we'll have to see when he gets you Brian has made it clear intrigued by the possibility of playing with Lamar Jackson quite the fall from grace from Desmond. What star he was he's thirty one years of age. Where do you think I'm GonNa come back with the Ravens for Dez Bryant I you know I think the issue with Dez has always been. When he goes outside the system, I mean, remember this is a guy that you know the cowboys wanted to take a pay cut to let's go back. Remember I think he was making sixteen million. I could have the numbers com wrong but it's in that area and he was clearly not playing to that level. He didn't have any bursts at the top of the route. He didn't separate his hands where we're really inconsistent, which is an indication of players, loosener legs he. Didn't he's not a guy who's to line up at multiple positions and still function really well because he needs to have a kind of like he needs to be a one place he needs to have his routes. He's not as a thinker of the of the game as he plays. You know he's a slower processing player. So for me learning a new offense with this guy, you know he's worth putting on the team from an executive standpoint if I signed Dez Bryant. And he's not my starting extra my starting see what am I getting out of them so okay, let's go through it. So if I sign them to say a minimum deal, two, million dollars. So I'm on the hook for a million bucks. Okay. If he makes the team on the Saturday of the before the opening game I guarantee salary for a year I got no flexibility there. Right. He can't help me at all in the kicking game. So unless he starting playing in the three receivers set, you know then he's not going to be active. So now I'm paying millions of dollars for a guy that I'm not gonNa have active now if he can. And he's GonNa make a big difference to my team. You know we drafted two receivers one in the third one in the six you know. So those two guys gotta take a back seat. They're cheaper labor force like none of this adds up like if you told me, you want sign Antonio Brown and you WanNa take on the game suspension young. Okay. Because I promise you Antonio Brown walks onto the field. There is nobody on Baltimore steam as good as they think they are at receiver and they have good receivers. There's nobody on that football team as good as Antonio Brown but he's the best player he's the best receiver on the team, but if Dez Bryant walks in. You know is he better than Hollywood? Brown no is see better. The Miles Birkett are Chris more or Willie snead. You know they drafted the dump Rene Texas they drafted the poor kid in the sixth round. So they got two young kids that they drafted like, where does he fit and then I I'm exposed at a million like these are all things like this is called second. Order thinking like it's one thing the media makes this big deal with says, bright. Well, you know does Bryant. Five years ago was a good player does Brian today may not be a good player just because he's a named certainly has from the past that's a different story as to how could translate this season one more than we're gonNA take a quick break how about this story with? You might quickly become this year's the copper Joe judge whole bunch of Giants Players Wearing Blue Jerseys jogging on the perimeter of the field three going far away the get to the next drill. This was not illusion leisurely stroll during Monday's training camp practice. This was a penalty lap run by the entire backup offensive unit players along with the offensive coaches were on the move that's coaches had to go as well after Kris. Chad slade gives me the guard had some pre snap movement. So the last time sterling shepherd, the longest tenure giants players saw coach. Levy on the with penalty laps probably Middle School. Welcome to the Joe. Judge giants is this Little League type time Mike or do you appreciate when it coaches now we did this where kids are doing this now penalty laps for everybody I. Think The you know obviously in the Patriots. If you have a false start, the player runs around sometimes ver- infrequently I would see Bella check make the coaches offensive or defensive do a job. But most of the time it was a player who made a mental mistake you know fall star jumped off sides. Focus, and concentrate to run a lap. You know look I think Joe's gotTa make a decision here and I've said this last week about he doesn't have bill down the hall to protect him. And all this stuff all this attention to details. Great. You know but you got to get people to buy into it and you've got to be able to get them to to. It's gotTa start with a a sense of trust and a sense of respect for one. Another you know and I think ultimately, you know for people on the outside of never been a part of the Patriot program especially in New York City that there's going to be a lot of doubters and how you handle those doubters are really going to be key. Joe's going to say, well, you know I don't pay attention to anything. Well, it's going to into your team you better pay attention. That's why you have to be yourself. You have to be your own authentic leader and when you're just trying to copy bill, no, one can do bill better than bill can do bill know like there's ways to discipline players. There's ways to force concentration in you have to come up with different ways to do it because if you just copy bill that eventually this is going to get old often imitated. Duplicate it. When we come back, we're going to talk about speaking the Patriots. Newton Hoyer. Splitting Reps Right now at Camp plus firing back at Williams with the Seahawks, Jamal Adams has to say and a little bit later on here on the GM Shafi Mike tip of the day plus I went and saw the holy grail Sinatra's birthplace all that more coming up here on the GM shuffled. Hey Guys Juju Smith Schuster here probably weird to hear me on his podcasting when you're used to see me do my thing on the field football's a huge part of my life, but there's another thing I. Love. That's a lounging. There's only one way to do it while wearing these baby i. love me undies because they're just comfortable overall. I've never had a under where I. can wear throughout the day and then don't even have to go change into ties to work out I'm done work just minds. It makes my life simple but me uneasy I feel like you can pretty much do everything make all. Sorts of stuff undies, loungewear, and a best onesies and guys. The stuff is sought like software than my dog booties baby. But saw after taking hits on the third day a softening feels like actual heaven sign up for their membership as you can get delivered right to your door every month with all sorts of perks, site y sales, free shipping, and seriously that I mentioned their onesies, it's like zipping up happiness all over your body me these has a great. All of you guys first time purchases get fifty percent off and free shipping. Go to me dot com slash sports. That's me these dot com slash sports. All right. Let's talk further about the New England Patriots Mike Cam. Newton. As you said before, you think he's going to be the guy as far as the starting quarterback when it's all said and done but right now, Bill Belichick has splitting reps between Cam. Newton. Brian Voyeur and stood him stood him the rookie backing up Brady threw four passes last season apparently was actually The most impressive one on the first day of work according to reporters on the scene Bill Belichick has declined to name a starting quarterback may not do so for any time soon, I, know you believe Cam. Is going to be the guy but how much of a chance do hoyer instead them have obscenity apple car and trying to get into the mix I mean look. Look at the way they rotate the quarterbacks in and out of the game has no bearing who's in the lead I mean I think bill likes to do just a mess with people I think the one thing about an eighty man roster as you bet learned to play with everybody because they're trying to get other players look to if you just play with this one set of receivers if cam just throwing the ball to all the time or camps throwing the ball to kneel Harry then they can't evaluate evaluate some of their other receivers or they can't. Evaluate what they could do. So you know this is really like depth charts in preseason or like wedding seating charts. You know like they they they know no rhyme. You know it's like seriously like planning a wedding, right? Okay. We're GONNA have a remember Sopranos where they had the people sitting next to him and all that. You know let's go look like you know and so everybody makes such a big deal who's getting the reps when every coach every every general manager wants to be able to see the level of talent play against other good level of talent. So I don't put too much of an I think cam. Newton obviously is one of the best players they have, and he's going to be the starting quarterback eventually, but he's going to have to earn it. You know if he's throwing five interceptions a day and he's not making progress, he won't be the starter, but I think he's I. Think he's playing. To a level that's really good I. I think the Patriots offensively have a chance to be way better than they were last year I think that tight end they drafted from Ucla. The A saucy kid is is going to be really a good player I think they're going to have to handle the right tackle. Whomever that may be is it going to be? is going to be Cunningham Ham whomever. Are they GONNA be able to put eleanor over there. I don't know but I do think I think the sleeper and fantasy here is David Harrison. I think Damian Harris is going to be a really good player from Alabama I think he'll sunny Michelle's on pup I don't anticipate him getting off that list anytime soon. So is Lamar Miller. So I think if you're if you WANNA get asleep on your fantasy drafts, I would take I would play on David. Harrison do that but I I think cams definitely going to be the starter and don't read I think this is really important when you read like read your, you know your daily paper read about your team but be really careful believing what the write ups are the headlines Don't match it right? You know like you'll read a headline where it says this player looked really good. But then when you read the article, he really didn't really look good he was taking. Reps with you know he wasn't even in the one on one drill just he flat he made a play. He caught a deep pass. He did something you know. So you have to be really careful about when you read what when you read, the review of practice is compared to what the reality of practices they're two different worlds. That's Mike tip of the day headlines versus articles headlines or misleading if you've ever watched the news, I mean for God's Sakes if. You look at the font, the bomb screen you think we're all going to Helena handbasket actually look at the story like you said, read it further investigate and go from there I speaking of just because this is the best way for me the patriots the fact when Belgium was asked what he did during the pandemic, he said he watches the promise. Of course, the greatest coach of all time would watch the greatest show of all time but I'm putting the credit. To that on you I'm thinking I'm not that bill would no, it's a great show on his own. Of course he's seen it but I'm sure throughout your friendship and working relationship you were telling belts seriously this is a great show of all time. Right we would always talk like he would like ask him what he was watching and you know like he loves movies. So like hey, did you see this and you know I I kinda know what what? Type things he likes to watch you know and I was talking to him a lot about the wire because I think the wire for me is so was so educational you know growing up in in a beach town with very few African American kids very few went to school you know and not really understanding the inner city right you just don't know the inner city you can't, and then you're you're paid to evaluate young men who grew up in the. Inner City and the wire was eye opening to me so I would often tell him you. You know the two shows you gotTa Watch to really understand where this thing's going in terms of how we evaluate the character of players is in the wire you know and and so I don't know if he ever fill through with that but we talked about it quite a bit. We talked about the Sopranos speaking of the wire are not to deviate a little bit. But I gotta change like, did you see Jimmy Butler is selling coffee in the bubble for twenty dollars a cup? Did you see this? Hey, second and Jimmy Butler the very high salary NBA. Player is now Barista's he's he's making a little scratch on the side selling coffee and what does he has some special ingredient from like Colombians who how much is the coffee I? Mean I don so first of all, here's the reality apparently according to my Disney Expert Bill My Buddy, you know. Sometimes, I call them my neighbor but he's my buddy. So he happens to be my neighbor to, of course, milly gives me crap for mentioning that I call them my neighbor. So everything is scrutinized on this podcast based on shoutouts and how I actually posture so I wanna make that clear but anyway so bills an expert on Disney like bills like I to bring bill on and have you. To debate Disney movies because you it would be awesome. It would be awesome podcasting but anyway so he he has told me that there's not a great great coffee. There's not a lot of great coffee at Disney and they have a few starbucks, but there's not a lot of them. So obviously, Butler realizes there's a void in the marketplace. So he decides to he has his own French. Press. And he decides to open up for business. I don't know where he got the beans from. Maybe he's got a context south south of Miami that set it up the beans I don't know. But what I loved was he's got a whiteboard in front of it. This is the this reminded me of the wire. So much right. He's got a whiteboard in front of and he causes coffee company big face coffey. So he's got and he knows his clientele ad he knows his clientele says cash only right and then in a box, he's got no I owe us because he knows these guys are going to try and say, Hey, man, I'll get you later but they ain't GonNa get you later right and this is the best. One. A Small Cup of coffee twenty dollars a medium. Cup of Twenty, a coffees, twenty dollars and a Large Cup is twenty dollars. So the coffee be twenty dollars, motherfucker that's basically what he's saying you know and so I just think to me but to me, it was very wire oriented. I hope the money's going to charity but apparently he's very busy. That's unbelievable. The fact that we Butler is that enterprising here like you said, starbucks is there but I guess strawberries could still up a while. Hey, these guys can afford it. If you want the Best I've God that's the way to go the Butler did it I can appreciate that. One more NFL story here, and we're gonNA take a quick break and talk with hard knocks unexpected development last Thursday jets, defensive coordinator Greg Williams. Took a shot you Jamal Adams, and he may get bored playing for the SEAHAWKS. So. Pete Carroll came back. We don't make as many mistakes as he does. A few days later, Adams give his first public responses at Gw. He definitely misses me. I'll think I'm going to get bored winning. That's how I look at it. I'M GONNA be alright say law that miss me over there. What did you think Greg Williams taking a shot at Jamal Adams that he comes back at him. You know if I were Joe Douglas, I would walk down to Greg's office and say shut up Blake at some point to shut up. It's not about like seriously like this is about. This is really about what we do. Right. This isn't about anything other than that, and if you can't stay in the moment if you can't make decisions based on. On, this that we we've got no chance here like why are we getting emotionally and making things? It's GonNa Affect you like I really think as we look into the season and we go over the when you work in an NFL team because it's such an emotional sport, we get caught up in the emotion. Of all our decisions and we we have these outbursts which I think are horrendous right and so in poker poker they think is truly a game that is most similar to life. Right? There's a Lotta. There's fifty two cards. There's you know there's a lot of similarities Texas holdem. Some things you can't but decision making. So there's this thing in poker that's called till. So it's basically a state of mental or emotional confusion or frustration which a player adopts a less than optimal strategy resulting in the player becoming over aggressive right and so you lose a game. You think that you know you because you've got a bad call or you did this and. So you start to tilt and now you start making decisions based on emotion. Are you start behaving with emotional outburst which is what this is, and at some point is a general manager of the leader of any company. You GotTa teach your people about tilt. So embellish says we're on the Cincinnati at the end of the day. Really what he's saying is he's not tilting. Now. The media got caught up in it because you know how could you be on to? Cincinnati. You played so shitty against Kansas City and you've got destroyed but if but his mom was he was going to tilt he was not going to tilt. He was going to take emotion out of the decision. It was a bad game it's moving forward and if I were Joe Douglas I would say that to all to Greg Williams I would say at the peak carol and if I were Pete Carroll I would call Jamal Adams into the office and say that's enough. Bro That's enough we ain't doing this no more at your here it's about us it ain't about them anymore. That's the focus of it has to be Greg Williams I get parties, Persona Mike, Fiery Guy Emotional, illicit. He's been the for a long time and lots of different places and people like the fact that he gets them fired up but you're right this just can't end on a positive note and it's funny how Adams's mentioned the whole concept of winning because it'd be this time in a fair fight when you look at how bad the jets have been and the winning tradition of obviously the seahawks, it is a much, much different story. All right. When we come back hard knocks recap we are two episodes in what is standing out so far from the show plus paying homage to the chairman of the board. That's next. During these. Turbulent.

Hard knocks is back hard knocks Los, Angeles a couple episodes in. So far of the show listen you got jared Goff playing mini golf. So that's jared Gulf Jalen Ramsey storming out when he's asked about his contract. That's why so upset about that Sean mcvay of course workaholic working in different time right now to Kobe how it's impacting training camp hard knocks a different version twenty twenty what stood out to you so far Mike you know I think it's interesting to look of the coaching contrast Anthony Lynn who's obviously overseeing the chargers he's not involved in the day to day operation of of the offense or the defense is he's kind of the big. Pitcher. Guy you know and I think you can learn a lot from how they kind of talked to the players like you know they got this a college free agent kid that they signed from two Lane Darius Bradwell, which to me is like like you just wonder it goes back to our embiid conversation. So Brad Wells this kid who played at two thirty four but he shows up, he's a big back right and he's got talent but he shows up a to thirty four and he shows up to fifty and he's supposed to play at like two thirty four like seriously dude like how important is it to you and so It Lands Job Anthony. Lens. Encouraging them and the kids being so polite. Yeah, I got. Know to me like don't be polite to me like seriously there's a reason why and this is what what really it comes down to like there's three kinds of underachievers and Bradwell clearly with his weight gain is in the underachiever class much like embiid is right. So there's the underachiever that doesn't work hard and doesn't compete right? That's really embiid. He'll compete against certain teams, but he's not if he sees Marc assault he's retreating right so does it work hard doesn't compete against the Great Pliers Right? So that's one. Doesn't. You know works hard. But can't compete, and then there's the guy that won't work hard but can compete and so if you're Bradwell, you're either one of those to you either you just can't won't compete to make yourself work hard or you just can't or you just don't have any work habits and we'll see. So you know give it two weeks and if he doesn't lose weight, then you gotta get him out of there because you're just wasting your time with him. Because, he's never going to change his behavior because he's one of those three categories employers. So that kind of jumped out. I mean. Anthony. Limb was encouraging. But like at some point do like like if I were the GM and he showed up to fifty, I would have put them on pup because like we're not putting you out on the field you're GONNA get hurt. You're going pull a hamstring. You're too fat like at some point that's why. They must have a conditioning test. At. The chargers because he would have never made the list. So anyway, I thought, you know Jalen Ramsey's buying a home I mean that. Lady is going to get a lot of business from athletes out there. She already has a company she's. Got, to see it. So she showing. She show in the home to Ramsey and it's up in the hills and she must have like nine inch heels on and she's trying to walk in the backyard with all these rocks with the nine inch heels like literally like she might have better balance than some running backs in the NFL like seriously she might have better balance and of course, my man golf is. You know golf saying they're going to be much better this year which I think to me one of the biggest things I think people don't always account for and this one of the things pet peeves that drive me crazy in the NFL is is is everybody thinks that they're going to play you the same way I I in this book in this book bluffing the bet. By Maria Corner Cova, Eric Sidell, who's a world class poker player. Is, her adviser and she says to him she says. How would you of play the hand? And he says. I can answer that because they play me different than they play you. So you can ask me and that line right. There is the essence of the NFL because the rams have found out that how teams play them now is different than how they did before. So when you watch the last three games of team playing like most coaches do right. All you're doing is reinforcing the way people are reinforcing. A system, but you're not really understanding how a team is going to play you. So I if you study the tape of the Games of the people that do what you do, and then you figure out how they're going to play you. Than you can adjust to that why the raiders have such a hard time scoring in the third quarter because they figure out the game plan based on Gruden's good this he does a really good job of being able to say, okay, they play this to this formation they play that too that formation but eventually, how do they play you? And I what I watch. And I see I see his personality and I I look to me. This is going to be a big year to see how the rams handle, how teams have been playing them. But that's that's a fascinating insight because you could use that in life for teachers or how do you motivate the student? Well, you motivate him differently than I motivate him Mike. It's not only dependent upon the personality will what kind of? Personality, you have which can bring out the best. So That is interesting to see how that works. Speaking of motivation. We Know Sean McVeigh's a great coach. Some early feedback from the first episodes seemed eager to take his shirt off and jump in the pool. This dog did you get any kind of Gruden esque vibes it a shot mcvay? Yeah. He's got a little bit of Gruden you could say he's influenced by. Grew I mean the way he's either the voice reflection and the way he coaches. He's got a little bit. Give me fucking tiger. You know he's got a little bit of that I. Think Sean does a really good job. I think sean worst enemy is Sean I. Think Schanz. Worst shown general manager Sean. I know less steeds, the GM but I think Sean makes the decisions that I think he could do so. Much, more with this team and I understand there may be because of the star implications but to me signing Goth thirty-three million, I, think Shawn's were thirty, three million not golf. So I could see 'em interesting. I thought you know ESPN went after him to see if he would work Monday night football which I don't even know how that idea would come up a young coach like that wanting to do it but. But the one good thing his agent Bob Lamont does a good job of being able to make sure that you know his client's name is always out there I I like Sean I sean it's a big year for Sean Change Defensive Staff Changed Offense changed some offensive coaches changed special teams will see if he becomes more of a head coach you can see he runs the offense. So no matter what happens right he runs the office he's coaching quarterback every day, and now he's got to see what he does with his defense look forward to more of hard knocks. It's one eight hundred Emmy awards obviously great show there on Hbo Speaking of HBO as mentioned earlier bill. Belichick. During. The quarantine I polished off the Sopranos that was good Christian Fauria the radio host former pass said finally finished it ballot check I. Did we saw Lawrence Taylor's cameo I don't really know how it ends because it leaves you hanging so yes, Bill Belichick also on the Sopranos speaking of Italian American culture my wife Ayman I celebrate our thirteenth wedding anniversary and I okay. We've been in Jersey a year plus let's go make the pilgrimage Yucky let's go to hoboken and Pale Mosh the chairman of the board. All Blue Eyes himself Frank Sinatra. So my buddy mark hi office you gotTa. Go to Leo's rendezvous was it's an old Sinatra hanging out I said perfect. Now you can't coincide obviously I just you know put the mask on went and saw a just a ton of pictures and memorabilia FIDORA's RATPAC CETERA. But outside they set us up SOCI- distance patio how little nookie with the colors of the Italian flag at that Red White and green. and. Listened to actually put Sinatra Music on the Patio we talked about before Mike. Mike is going to be in the rat pack kind of mood like I got to tell you. We're sitting outside there were having dinner. It's a beautiful night in hoboken and you're hearing strangers of the night or something stupid or New York New York I. Mean it doesn't get much better than that but as you said parking in Hoboken, that's the biggest challenge other than that it's great. Where'd you park? Where did you go park? So amazingly my wife found a spot like literally about a block. And a half away, but it was so tight and I a terrible parallel Parker. So I get into the car and kind of director to do it, but it was so tight. You can't pay by the meter you have to go get an APP. So I guess they're very tech savvy there. You gotta use an APP at the APP pay the parking that way. But aside from that, there's no parking garages that got I'm willing. We've discussed this before you and I are willing to pay extra. For the convenience meaning like my dad's was, why don't you know you're a lot like now I'll pay fifty bucks for the guy to come every two weeks to worry about saving the parking like I'm willing to pay thirty bucks for the parking in Hoboken if it means, they don't have to worry about it but no, there's no parking garages anywhere it street parking and I a parallel parking. It was a tight squeeze. Yeah. I mean, that's the biggest problem with Hoboken, but but it's just kind. Of. Interesting. To see how that neighborhood has. Now become, you know I don't know if they're having the effect of New York City's obviously the home costs are coming down based on covert and all the things that are going on in New York City but hoboken be just a path over to New York City, which is such a great town and you know, Jersey City has revitalized itself as well. Those neighborhoods which you know we're going to see a lot of Jersey City in the in the in. The saints of of Saints of Newark I think and we'll see all that kind of as those neighborhoods. But some of those old stones are just kind of really remarkable I. Know I know they've turned them into three apartments on each floor but just thinking back in a time when Sinatra though streets and you know and he tells the story about how he he he was saved by his birth by by the the woman who helps the the livery back in the twenties or whenever the heck. He was born you know they they call the pair, but there's like a nurse or that one that did that and apparently he was choking and dying and and she saved his life and forever in his life he was like he was forever grateful to that woman and the whole hoboken thing, i. i. think it's just remarkable. His actual birthplace is four fifty monroe. She's so we went there and obviously they do not have his birth home still they tore down what they had with a basically before. They had like a star like a walk of fame type thing but apparently been scuffed up and beat up and literally just said Arizona for Sinatra's born. So they actually built these condominiums and now the star is in the building. So it's really cool. You Go. You see the Sinatra Mural, and then there's the starches that could see on the strongest walk of fame here lies in a hoboken's most favored son nineteen, fifteen, Francis Albert and I looked it up Mike afterwards I got to tell you. Listen I. Wish the GM shop I wish we could get sponsored the condominium tower were Frank Sinatra. was born is called Frank's place. So I looked it up you could get like a four bedroom four bathroom unless it's over a million dollars which is crazy but obviously just said hoboken you're right next to New York City but I wish we could get sponsored by Franks placement wouldn't it be read one day you just tell Millie Hanno we got a great place Ocean city I bought a million plus. Just to say, I could now go where Frank Sinatra was born and grew up when you walk that neighbor you're right the browns a lot of it's still restored just building itself is brand spanking new to me that to me the ultimate would have been if I could ever met Sinatra and if he could have just pinched my cheeks, you know how he would always kind of like pinch somebody's cheek I went into Raoult's one time and I saw my man Frank Pellegrini God. Rest, his soul and I started reciting to him some of the one episode where Tony Comes into that you know you know you and I are not combat a Tony. You'll even though we both have from the same one, it's sunny peninsula. You know you know about him how different he is an Italian as Tony is and I start reciting that frank comes up it gives me the pinch cheeks. It was better than the meal there was better than the meal and so to me. That would have been the ultimate I mean just the fact that. I go to a timmy there should be a rule if you're in a steakhouse and they're not playing Sinatra, you should leave like that's just doesn't work right? Totally. What I I got the plant some light rockets go hanging a second isn't this Sinatra's place like let's cue up the Francis Albert like you gotta get in the mood and is an American icon on any other. Have you seen his live the live from new? York have you seen that one? Yeah you after you told me to watch, it was great when I could even just lawsuits that people are aware that people are dressed up. Live from Madison Square Garden I. Think it's on Amazon prime. If people haven't seen it, it's a I think it's called the main event. Sinatra, live the massive. Our people were in suits Robert Redford in the crowd he comes as soon as you hear, she gets hungry at quarter to eight whole crowd goes nuts. That's why the lady is a tramp the so good. I mean I I it's such a great air and steadier is never going to die I. mean you know it's like Michael Boob Lay said if you've ever another another documentary, I'd recommend watching it the David Foster one which the guy's a true genius. I mean. The guy is truly genius. He was able to do things I. mean he's in a damn meeting with. The head of motown records and and and he's thinking of something for earth wind and fire and he and he doesn't really have it until he gets to the piano, and then of course, he starts playing chord and there there's the next hit for earth wind and fire you know. It's just really a great great documentary but in it, they're talking about Michael. boob lay how Michael Blais is. You know was found at at at a wedding basically by David foster that he was performing at a wedding and so foster kidnapped Mom de los Angeles and then they went over to the record company and they said like you know. Sinatra's like, why would we want to promote you or put you on the label if you're going to play Sinatra music and and up Michael, bubbly says well Sarah in all due respect to Mr Sinatra, he is dead you know and so that launched his career as as a Sinatra WanNa be and he is I mean it's great but. That documentary's really good but I I love it. I love that you went there and did the whole thing like the other one. Is the Palm Beach see where he's out in Palm Beach I like what? I A million I lived in La. La. The La one I went to every restaurant I sat at the table that he would sit at I forget the name of the one restaurant La Doce I. think it was but I went to every joint that he would have gone to say some of them were closed obviously, and then I saw church where he was buried in and went to mass there but then but then the palm beach on his palm springs is the one that that I've never been to I know I'd love to see own that tell man evolving about. Las Vegas obviously the rat pack palm springs in the stories, but it's not your that documentary is also great worth seeing Mike Instagram, follow him at 'em Lombardi NFL. Soon as twitter handle, you can follow me Adnan s virk. You can also follow shows instagram page at the GM shuffle last thought here I want to circle back to the NBA. We started it. Let's close that how about Charles Barkley taking shots at skip bayless I mean it's look. If you're just GONNA attack Damian Lillard for no reason at all like like look I know I attacked embiid but I'm telling you I bring numbers to attack it like tell me he's in shape like like I'm trying to understand like it's for the benefit of embiid like you know and you attack people with with really like I know he's all over Lebron and you know I think he was you know in the Lakers lost but I gotta say this though I think the NBA's done a remarkable job i. think the Games are fun to watch I. Think There's way more coaching going on in these games than people really WanNa admit to and I think you can learn a lot. From watching how these guys coach and how they handle the match I love it and I love the Barclay. I Love I mean Barkley just tells the truth. The other night he was on talking about how harden was the greatest one on one player, and of course, Kenny and shack. When crazy saying how can you say that embark made a great point? He said look look the greatest players of all time or Michael Jordan Kobe Bryant I'm not saying that but this guy can shoot from thirty five feet out. He's the best three point shooter Michael couldn't do that. Kobe couldn't do that. This guy one on one is hard because of his three point line shooting and it made sense. If we're playing pickup. Would you pick James Harden over Kobe of course you would but the point I was trying to make and that's where people lose so much. They don't understand what the messaging is. They only hear certain words and they react to it and I think he's and the one thing about Barclay why so papa he speaks the truth like he's called he's called him beat out. He knows he knows him beat is I mean everybody in? The League knows who that embiid isn't that tough. I'll tell you a story about embiid the this I got from somebody in the League. So they're playing the thunder and Russell Westbrook goes down and takes an and be gives him a hard foul. So he gets up and he turns to stay Stephen Adams and says, are you going to handle that and Steven Adams says to him Nah I didn't think I needed to I thought you could do it. And westbrook says, no, you take care and so Adams did and that was the last you see beat the rest of the night like that's like that's we're talking about mental toughness. And people don't understand it. People see achievement they see talent but you gotta have mental toughness, mental toughness and enterprising spirit like Jimmy, Butler selling coffee right now, the bubble twenty bucks a cup the Best Cup of Joe Year, we're going to have thanks for checking out the GM shuffled Dr Next.

Inmates Call Them To people robbed a sheets convenience store than Virginia earlier this month and they covered their faces with a different type of mask. The hollowed out watermelons. You can see the shots from the surveillance video. They both got a large watermelon each covering their heads and then cut out holes and they went in and robbed. The sheets stork now they've Police have figured out who one of them was. They're still looking for the other side. Just take a moment. Just think of the largest watermelon. You've seen recently and then think of it as being hollowed out in wholesome so when they get thrown into jail. What's the nickname Mellon had bingo? Thank you back right on the money. Mellon hit awkward. I haven't seen the video but I got cashier and this is all. I know I'll do my homework. I'm just picturing dwayne where one of them stupid mask. Well get this on my head. That's exactly right. Today's more out of the day. I'm just putting it here because it's a place to put it because I think that fish tails in ocean city Maryland actually has a genius idea. It's some far and it's right there on the water and they wanted to be able to open but they also want to practice social being and keep their customers safe and they knew that if they didn't come up with something pretty innovative. It's just sort of human nature. We would all sort of crowd together. So they have created innertube social distancing tables each one. You climb inside your inner tube which is set up around a table place to put your drink and it's on wheels so you're inside the inner tube which is also a table you're standing up it's on wheels and you can put your drink down on the table and wheel around and it's it serves like bumper cars. You're guaranteed to stay six feet apart from other people but you're comfortable and mobile and we have pictures and video and it actually looks. Kinda awesome and fun and we will see if this works. It's like you're a baby again. It's a lot like a giant babies walker a baby's Walker luck. My grandson Christian has that's what it's like but my favorite part about it is. It's the it's not just your walker these giant inner tubes so that if trump into someone else you just ricochet off them like bumper cars. Look good for them. That's a that's a great idea. It looks it's a great idea and it looks like such a fun. Do like to be in one of these. Inner two things. You have to see it to believe it. It's really adorable. Text the word Moron. Two eight eight two six to seven four three seven. We'll send today's more of the day directly to your phone and you'll be automatically registered to win the Bob and Sheri Hand sanitizer called people. Make me sick now. Let's stay with social distancing and let's go to Brooklyn where cops had pepper spray a woman and take her away in handcuffs after she brawled with the dude who was not paying attention to the social distancing rule e people were standing in line outside a building on the circles under six feet apart and one witness said one of the two people in the fight violated the rule and they started fighting and it was punches and hair pulling in everything. New York City. Police officers broke up the fight. Pepper sprayed the woman and take and took her to the eighty fourth precinct. House to be booked. This is a new kind of crime in morons in the news a few months ago. If I would've said today's Moron broke the social distance rule. It would have sounded like Bouma. Move anything brand new and finally These are just really odd times. Kylie Jenner. Just posted her driver's licence photo on instagram. And there's nothing special about. It's just her photo on instagram. And it attracted more than seven and a half million likes folks come on. We're better than that on. I don't care I don't care how you are better than that. And that is morons in the news or today and this is Bob and Cher.
