Are Feet Private? - #526
You're listening to rooster teeth podcast number five hundred twenty six if you hear something you would like to see from this episode. Visit rooster teeth dot com. Happy new year. Welcome to the podcast this week. Brought to you by Tig tone and the store. I'm gus. We're missing white chair. Okay. That. I'm Bernie can they be British? You'll give me bridge Miramar because you have guess fuck it right showed gab so close to being perfectly on time media Canada is the closest to being British starting. So in time, we always topic. How are you? All right. What were you doing? Can you say what you're doing? As she your human hunters stuff. We started criminal masterminds really is that a video game or a board game. It's. Never mind. I watch your contact. Win. Just spoil it get it out of the way. Man. I I bought gas new year having year, but happy new year well recorded, the New Year's Eve one and that. Yeah. And that was also New Year's Eve that is correct. Does is correct. His math checked out. What do you guys think of the whole mentality of it being a new year and people making these decisions to change themselves or to start fresh on something? I think it's great. I it's easy to be cynical about it. I think it's all you could always change yourself. I think it's just an arbitrary date. You put pressure you need avocado date that stuff, but I wouldn't like it. So I raised my chin smugly if you if you focus on it, then it's just like you're sitting yourself up to fail at it. I think if you just want to do it and do it, I think humans need excuses. Stings humans need excuses. Just in terms of like people like all start my diet on Monday. He's saying animals don't care when it's Newsday. I'm guessing they don't I think the only animals that care probably dogs. The fireworks fireworks? They're really hate the fourth of July. They can't stand it. But he'd our freedom. Weird to me because cats are scared of every noise like vacuums and stuff like that. I've never had a cat that was scared of fireworks like freaked out and fireworks are going or even like thunder dogs are freaked out by thunder and by works. Are they oh I was just over at Travis house for Christmas, and they have two dogs that are once a year old and ones is like maybe like eight or nine months old. They literally try to attack. If you have a broom out if you take the broom out of the closet, they'll try to attack it won't stop barking. You take a vacuum out like you're fucked. I don't understand it Bill attack. Like, they're not afraid of it. They'll just they'll bark at it. And try to like nip at it. It could the broom could just be literally standing on the floor, not moving no one else's around is someone hitting them with that. Broom. That's a really. Zelter they were in or something. I don't know my girlfriend's cat in college. Gary the cat. He. He hated one thing in particular. He hated if you took the pages in a book or like a thing of post it notes, and you did that like flip them like that really fast early. You're flipping money. You know, like, they always movie them about works or not. But if you did that he would come into tack you like, and I just I didn't feel like one time I discovered this because I was going to like this hot. And I was going to go here. Gary or someone for you. And I like did that he just went like brand he came out with what the fuck was that? And I've seen since then don't do this. If you have a cat, but have you seen the videos where somebody takes a comb and run their thumb down the comb like all the little time. It makes it tick dick dick is a frequency that they'd like a frequency or something the cats can't stand, but they don't Tak they just like gag they protect the gag like like huge gags look at the videos because those cats have already been tortured, but don't do this to your own cat because apparently they really really don't like it. They like it when you put down a look accu- there on the floor, right? Or if you put a piece of ham on there. It'd be like it was like you put him on a cat and the cat just goes to sleep. Heaven. Admission complete. Cat video of all time is that vine of that person. Putting the flower on top of the cat, and she's like no needs something and it just like the prophets. Always always wanted to see the evolution of those. You like was the new knee video is something somebody posted. But it was the matrix. Prophecy is true thing. Yeah. Added on top of it. That's what really took on time. When remembers it. They don't remember the first thing that the person posted there's a couple of vines that I used to watch back when vine was a big thing that only after the fact I realized were made by Avery from crunch time. Yes. That's the original one. Apparently because that doesn't go into the prophecy is true stuff. Yeah. I gotta say I loved vine. We used to make vines I was really disappointed feel bad when vinyl and away and a lot of those people. Well, first of all I feel like we got Logan Paul on YouTube because vine went away like he started with mine. Right. Well, that makes me hate vine going away. I know right. Even more than state over there on vine. But I was always so impressed, but everybody inviting their ability to do these stories. Yeah. In six seconds or Tele joke in six seconds. But man, I really wanna like tick tock, I really want to like it music videos. It's there's some short vine stuff on there. But the thing would take talk is it seems like everything's like a challenge. You know, there'd be stuff like trends that would go fine. Every now, and then and take talk seems to be like there's basically four videos and everybody makes their version of one of those four videos, and that's it generation challenge going on right now. That's like the the big tick tock where they play. For pop that pussy. Yeah. That's that's the generation challenge because I've been on. Look forward to for generations of the family. Great grandma, grandma comes out and talks to pop that pussy. Classy? It's great. You really got to get in get to sound bites of Bernie and Gus going pop that pussy separately. Got you. You were very clear. To give us a pop that pussy pop that pussy. But what he said the generation thing because one of the videos that's currently on tick tock is a girl. We'll start playing the song. And it's got really like benign intro to it, and they're dancing, and they're dancing with your mom or their dad, and then immediately goes into pop that pussy. The parents always like what the fuck are. We listening to. So how does one pop they're pushing? I have I have watched a lot of tick tock. How do you want? You have the app or do you have the app and then the app, and it shows you a video, and then you swipe up and you get a different video. That's it. Then when you're done close. Yeah. Social media. But let's pick talk. All right. All right. Deserve. Oh, I'm ready to be relevant. Have you guys? But it's not a good sign. That's about. Now. Definitely not have you guys discussed the thing that happened with Instagram a couple of weeks ago when the update no. Uptight of their entire fucking the funniest didn't get the update. But it changed scrolling to be whole it's kind of like the way stories are. So you could swipe or just like click on the right of a picture, and I'll take you to the next picture kind of made the whole platform a story in navigation wasn't the worst. But it definitely was very different functionality than what Instagram is like right now. I did a whole day. I think things to me is it didn't make sense square pitches to be going left to right when it's a portrait fun. Yeah. And you can see more is going that way. Yeah. We'll let me ask you. So if Gavin posted a photo, and then right after that you post a photo in my feed. Now, I see your photo scroll down. I see Gavin's Votto goes in reverse time. Yeah. So would this this tapping thing if I see your photo if I tapped it what I see your next photo. Or would I get Kevin? So as my feeling just your feed, and then if you scroll downwards, you just get the comments, so you don't actually have to click into the photo to get the comments. It just gets seems to kind of make sense that wasn't the worst. I was so confused because I woke up, and I was it was always using that. And then I was trying to tell Tony I was like Instagram is going up it wit. And then she didn't have it. And I didn't have any more. It's like, maybe I was just crazy. And when they did the update they had a screen that popped up. That's like Instagram has a new look like do this to go this way and see all these functionalities and all that stuff like an instructional, analyzed companies can update their apps without forcing an update I didn't realize it because I didn't like download a new update update. Vile. So then they just pulled it immediately. They pulled it like presently. Yeah. Did they say that they did that by accident? Is that the story? I heard that they didn't mean to push up to push shit. Yeah. They said they wanted to put it to a much smaller us based tests base but accidentally put everyone, but people are just like you didn't mean to put this out yet. You had instructions on he pulls it people outrage, they didn't say it was an update even they said there was a bug. They said it was like a bug in the in the app. Yes. That's definitely not a bug. What kind of bugs have instructions on how to use this book? It's a book that you're seeing this supposed you're supposed to be this next month. Yeah. Yeah. Bid or so I was I was talking with. I was walking through the target over here by the studio of day. And I ran and I was walking by the beer section. And I saw the had s'mores flavored beer got it right here. And by shiner, I text I texted a picture to Eric. I know this. But he said it was really good. And I said that sounds disgusting to me which of smallest like chocolate and marshmallows more spart s'mores is by definition like the combination Graham cracker marshmallow chocolate. Parts. They would probably call it that it would be chocolate beer, that'd be like having like thanksgiving dinner beer too, much stuff giving Dana sub. Hell, yeah. Exactly. We wanted to. Thank you. Thanks. No, we have more. I show. Can I throw this level? For each of us. They may be. What tastes this filth? So poll would people viewers who are watching right now? Would you drink a smaller as beer let me read the label for its shiner beer, small beer, it's chocolate and marshmallow ale. No, mention Graham. Ooh, that it's not a small not smoo-. It's a small s I would not have tried this. If Eric didn't bring it here. What makes a cracker a gram cracker? No. Oh that is. You never would've tried it. No, sounds gross. It's potable. Yeah. No. I like it not bad. It's gimmicky is one hundred percent right now, baby. Not too bad. I would love to try real smallest without without dog shit Hershey's chocolate. No, stop it. Right. The Cadbury got bought by somebody. And now they're recipes fucked up who think they come up the Hershey wasn't the ages ago. Yeah. They book every thing. Nestle fucking hostile takeover. The Graham cracker was inspired. By the preaching of Sylvester Graham, you saying grandma you think Graham, G R A H A M. Okay. Wasn't it like a puritan? He was influenced by the nineteenth century temperance movement. It believe a vegetarian diet anchored by homemade whole grain bread made from wheat coarsely grounded home as part of a lifestyle that involved, minimizing, pleasure and stimulation of all kinds was how God intended people to live. Right. It's a no, no masturbation. No pleasures. Gregor's? A pleasure. Lists cracker. Somebody had a cracker. Good would not in my opinion, much, Greg enjoying. Visiting platelets crack, we'll play with devil invents. Moore's trying to get back at Sylvester Graham. You guys. But I feel like I could have once more. His better idea than they are in practice. So small is is the equivalent of inseminating yourself with a condom what in seventy yourself for the condom dig it out of the trial like making something hopefully unplayable, really pleasurable. What like the the kraken what you're saying misery crackers, right? Let it go. Let them go. Gone. Steve. I couldn't go anymore. Normally got you normally. Like something made for prevention. But does the opposite. Okay. I see. Got you knock yourself up with a condom is where you got or explaining the most confused I've been around you. What's blame? What he reading 'em pizza to get some of it. He's taking his head. No. Got mad at me today because I pull the classic move. We're moving into new office today, and I'm right near Blaine. And Gus I did a classic Bernie move and the Rasheed office blame was eating lunch. And what about you what you put your tone? I know only tell what your finger. I put my finger in his hand while he was pretty upset with me special meal you brought or was it like the catered meal things that you can get from Starbucks egg white bites.

When's the last time you walked your hand? I just literally watch them ten minutes ago if I just spat in your hand tastes my hands bar. Back me up for Blaine. Here's haste. My somebody give me a lick Gabby. Tell them it's small amount. Well to be fair. The worst thing I ever did honest really feel bad about it this days. I did stick my toe into Jeff's burritos burrito. Barefoot who you're with the author. So happy about it. He was so happy not about the tone. Now known about the burrito. I just had to ruin it for them debris to somebody stuck they're towing. It depends on the person not Gus. But other people I would eat anything. No matter what. I don't like like, I don't care who sticks. What body parts in it? I'm eating pizza because we can test this because you think you're taking. On a pizza. Is what I would do touching it. It's different store and put their on my food. I would go Google the name and see like how far down there auto completes his feet indicates. How nice their feeder like grace Helbig was what third entry was fees up like that. Or look up other Wiki for only nine point five or above. And we. Yeah. Only if they have like socially acceptable instead of five stars. Oh, four point five. We did like a million dollars. But seeing where someone's feet would be in it like there's a scene where like at least we had a close up on her feet. And I put her in the ugly slippers Postles like I'm not gonna give Wicky feet this one. Take it. It's weird. I don't I don't get it. But did you have anybody that protested that that know everybody wanted their feet covered? Really? Yeah. I was at a guy who will like he misses me like weird kinks, and I wasn't wearing this watch anymore.

What we're what worth and people jerk off to you your photos of you. Do you think people, I know people like verify the people hid took off to you? Boy, I never thought about ever. Ever come tribute. What's that? It's where someone basically takes a picture of you and jerks off onto it, and like basically has all their come. Specifically picture me anybody. It's just totally. Wouldn't that would ruin all the income the paper I wish and you'll have. And you'll have. Egg whites upset about that. I bet this was made up by printer companies to make you spend more money on Inc. It'd be like a screen with a picture of you wherever you clean green. At that point. Look your phone in the. Wicky feet sounds like WikiLeaks. So I'm going to say, yes, is that going to be the next shirt that we make more? Private private or my Peter public can take their shoes off. So no. Some people wouldn't want to show that feet to the world. All the people are voting that they aren't private those are the people the feet kinks. I want you to shore leave your shoes at the beach.

No. So in November twenty seventeen took talks parent company spent a billion dollars to purchase musically can great investments worth a billion a billion. Then I don't know that doesn't seem that outrage to me in the world. We're like what's app is worth eighteen billion. I mean, musically was definitely one of the top ten or top fifteen social media platforms as a fair, it's hard to get into that territory. I didn't like musically. I didn't use musically useful to know younger people. I feel like if milley's using it is worth billions of dollars desk. Jeez. Got finger on the pulse. Yeah. Millie uses it and then loses her account, and then gets it back. Then that's how you know. It's I'm shocked closest poll, by the way, Dr. It reminds me of that paycheck. You've seen the pitcher of the shop, and it's cooled Baffi shoes. But the be up so just as off each you. Oh, really? Question are. Picturing barris and bear. And I was like your fee. Did the exact same thing? Dwayne. I'm sorry that I ruined your already terrible sandwich with egg whites had just needed the pro team back on my cutting phase. So don't. Yeah. I don't want your extra carbs on your fingers. I don't know. What you got it? Carves that Bernie has on his, oh, and people should let me know actually, don't let me know if you masturbate to me. I'm perplexed by the idea that people you pull do you masturbate to blame? Have you ever been blink? I vote in this would you dot com slash place. But I don't you live. Why don't we have a raise of hands just on the couch? I ever mastered nap. You're lying. We're you know, we're probably a fifty percent household in my my. Have you ever missed results? I. Zero. Give him a nice look. I would not want to go now. No, that's a decent ratio. Dude. You should proudly currently only like full people. What are you hoping for? Yes, or no, yes. I guess keep in mind. Fifty percent. Yes. Usually eighty twenty male to female ratio for our content. Yeah. So we get eighty twenty. Okay. Then I'm doing, okay. Then. You ever masturbated Gilady? Yes. There you go. So you counting like porn there. What do you masturbate with people in the room? What are you doing with? What's what he thought about guys who have different? Between two females in porn or just a picture of someone that, you know. Woman. Talking about. Doc images of women masturbate like right now. So that they can change their their vote. Yeah. You could you could you could masturbate. And then what else someone down cameras, so they have some material. I'm not gonna do that. All right. You're beautiful man now barred all right? We don't have been the same results. If you the cast voting to seven seventy five. One quarter of us have right there. Gotcha. You're gonna come out going record saying you've masturbated Leonard have not masturbated to blame. I'll come out on record. And officially say that sorry blame lucky though, he is the one you were hoping for he's he's a nice guy. Protein blend. Just come tribute. We get. I was going to do an ad read there, but I guess. You get a little distance from that on the whole. I want wanna get. All right. Let's talk about CBS because he s going on right now. Did you see the the folding television because I was out of the bath. So that folding television an L G O LED that's in a box. And when you turn it on it comes out of the box. It's sixty five inches. And then we turn it off. Faculty. Rolls up out of a box project a little bit. Yeah. Yeah. How do you store? It's just the Baucus. Do you do you just put that on your entertainment center, and it's nothing? So you have a picture there from over the what's in the box and then not only seven. The problem. I have to say is that the bucks? This is a really stupid complaint that amazing the TV rolls up like that. But the box because it rolls up ends up being bigger. It's so you have big rectangular box sitting there have actually though probably will matter. You're probably just have like some kind of like device you sat down does a holographic display. I got for teddy for Christmas. He really wanted. It. It's pretty cool. I got teddy. This little. It's like a little obelisk like a little square cylinder on. What is it? What's that? Call the square cylinder. Avoid. A tall square like a rectangular prism. Hey, go kind of like little black thing the lobbyists, and it's like a three or four inches tall. Just sits in front of the monitor and it projects with a laser a keyboard onto a surface like the table. And then you sit there and type I think I've seen the horse sky mall before he'll works perfectly. Yeah. It was because I thought he asked for it. I thought it was just like gimmicky toy. I would totally get one of these things for the road. But I really like having an ipad though, isn't it? The TV are the up side like this no tactile feedback because no keys it'd be like typing on glass, but it goes like, yeah. A little bit. But you make some noise to 'cause they're LG of blood flow. It's big is on like a super sound bar. TV? Have you seen my can't wait till like three months in and the motor burns out. And you're like stuck in the box. And you can't get it into failed windows in the in the cold or it's got like a little handle you have to reach in manually. Great. And have you to the wool TV by Samsung that was already announced that was last year the before? But it looks really cool. What's modular? The problem is how do you determine what signal goes where like do you have to learn how to pixel map your your video resolution like Scholley, there's a fixed amount of pixels on each piece. There's a lot of questions. Good lord. Wow. But yeah, it's it's very interesting. I guess it's the way people can make or if they move like say, you have two hundred inch TV, and it's like I want to move to a smaller place. Now, I have to seventy TV's. Whatever is interesting. I like C E S, and I like e three because I think that those two industry events are different than almost every other one because you end up seeing those things in manufacturer. And I hate would like, you know, car shows boat shows stuff like that where they just they just show you stuff, and they're never gonna fuck and make your conceptual cars. And your concept cars, that's really cool. The fun approx never going to look like nothing. It's thing like a city stupid version of every other call but anything you saw tedious under use us. I guess that was that you saw online at CS, I must've it might be my favorite show to go to you know, what I don't like ceus, and I hate CBS because I get anger when I think about CBS about something that happened years ago and Gus us how you will. You know, me what is the thing that happened to C ES? It's still makes me mad to this day. When you got snubbed at the avian that were going on at the same time. Yeah. They did a come tribute of, you know, you're close with country because it was Gizmodo was that after this was it was it was the turning off the things we had they went around turning off. They some booth was giving out these devices they were called TV begun TB gone. So if like you're in a restaurant TV's playing. Yeah, you have this whole thing. Featuring you hit it and it runs through all the off codes for TV's and just like run through really fast. So you can basically turn off any TV with fucked up and because they were giving away. Yes. The reporter gives Moto thought it'd be funny. He just went to people who were doing presentations, and when they're in the middle of the rotation now look at see what this display looked and he would shut everything off. And it's like I've been one of those people that has to present a conventions, and they thought it was fucking. There's always funny enough to do. And then they thought it was funny enough to publish it and put this out on their gadget based website second years on whatever they're doing. I was I don't know. What it was? It was it gives motor did like two or three things. I got so. Title. Halo bag was the other. That was that was that designate what was it? So. Yes. Two thousand eight it was right. It was. Yeah. Fuck that was one of the podcast is going around raising the hot rate of totally innocent people just trying to do that job trying to do their job. They and they probably worked on that. For that presentation. Probably couldn't sleep the night before they were like propriety prepared for months to do it. And then some dope with a God damn remote thing turns it off even after that even at our booth. I started having to put tape over the remote sensors because I think that inspired other people at conventions. You don't see other show packs is yeah, we'd have like TV's, man. There later we did the Griff full tournament. Remember had to tape up all the sensors to that because people, you know, people see something, and then they all do it. Maybe like thing like everybody thought of you know, for years, and then just goes away eventually play cripple again gift balls should go into three load up the old bap have. Have a tournament of the things we talked about for November. Playing Griff bowl negative, Emma? But you and I played our battle royale on lockout that gave me made years ago. Yeah. What do we call that fiesta? Limitation fiesta elimination fiesta at I think we had a name name for it. I'm trying to think of a name that would incorp- or a month that would incorporate my name somehow and the closest thing I could think of was July. Do that all of Barbara's favorite games? Why did you why not? June. Do you know? Nicer July's two syllables. Yeah. It's easier. I wanna read this when I'm everyone. This episode received podcast is brought to you by Tig tone to tone is a new animated show from adult swim. It's about a fantasy hero take tone who goes on quests, lots and lots of quests. So get ready for fantastical. Love letter for all things fantasy the main goal of most of tick tones quests.

Thriller in the link below what's his name? It's Tig tone. Is it right there Thome cake tone with the exclamation point? Thank you, don't take tone, take tone. So I have to admit something we've talked about this before. But while we're talking about here. I've got out myself a little bit. Gav came over to my house. We're playing red dead. And he was looking at my TV and said, why don't you have it in you HD? Why don't you playing red dead? And I got that big TV to cover that whole hole in my wall, which I don't wanna give it again. Oh, I don't wanna go through that road again. But you understand the whole that you've seen it. Right. I totally get it. Okay. Majesty's to bring everyone to it. Yeah. And show them the enormous hole in the wall that I'd cover the team. So I got a TV. So all I cared about for the TV was the dimensions because they had to cover that whole. That's the only criteria used to buy the TV. And so I found that was a perfect dimensions. Got it put it in had it installed. When in the one in the space. It was perfect. But I found out later. It didn't have you HD because I went to my XBox and HD HR HR. That's what I'm talking about. So when my Xbox One x and tried to turn on each yours as your TV doesn't have that. And it's oh bummer. I didn't think about that. What about the TV? I was just so focused on the dimensions. So Gavin asked me, I said that same thing. Yeah. I got the TV, but it doesn't have HDR. Yes. It does. It's just not turned on. I feel like we're having a separate discussion. I was like people have keywords people want full caving though. Like, nothing and full care really people HD. But almost everyone who hasn't HDTV never enables it it's not on by default and most TV's, and we were just having that discussion you like oh mine doesn't have. And I was like a bed, and then we goes in two seconds. He turns it on and turns on HR only ran we ran like the XBox test. Again, check to green channel. 'cause I'm like you. You had no one does it though. No one knows to do that when they're stupid. Sometimes it doesn't work relic. When I got my most recent TV, the one that I have now I went through and I did the same thing where it's like do they HDR test? It doesn't work then had to go through enable it in the TV redo the test on the XBox didn't work, then not too hard power cycle, the XBox Rehan shakes or something. And then all of the checks work is never in. Wade expect it I feel like a lot of people do go into their options. Oh, find it. And it's just never there. But it usually has to be done on a per input base. Yes. I have to go and find the input that my XBox or whatever whatever's plugged into and enable it on this specifically. And then it's on it doesn't make any why they do that h always surprises me in the in the first revision of you, typically hardware, they just get stuff wrong. Like, you know, there's a better implementation of how they could turn on HDR. And it's just it's wrong. And I get it. Sometimes like when you have an Xbox One at launch. It's got the power brick and then like a year later, they have the much smaller one. That's just as powerful. And there's no power. Brick and it's been that way for the last couple generations of the XBox? I get from manufacturing level the things improve. But I'm always surprised I'm gonna software level. It's like I knew this is they have to know this is just a bad way to do this. And if it's written on the books and in all of the marketing zero and big fat lays it should be like two or three clicks away on the tribute button on your remote HR question. Mark. Yeah. I don't get it. I just remembered because hearing you talk about it that way. I know what started the conversation. We were talking about the Tom Cruise most motion smoothing committing petty put out for that for mission impossible. No, he came in the director of top gun. I think they were talking about mission impossible. You think they were they did a whole PSA video and released on the internet about how to turn off motion smoothing and your TV, and I was like think is awesome. I'm glad they actually put out this video. I can't fucking stand. Can't stand it either that whenever I go over to someone's house to watch a movie, and they have it on. I'd go. Oh, you guys like this. Like what it's like, you don't notice how Larry smooth. And it's like this weird takes me out of the movie. So who likes it then a bunch of people who like it and tell the turn it off. I'll use it for specific things. I play red dead with it slightly on because slightly on because I'm too close to my TV sometimes where it's like. The the periphery will be really juddering and be like oh. And if I just put it on like three out of ten because it's like a level for it really is a it doesn't it's not distracting to me. It's interesting. And I haven't had a lever for other stuff. I tend off it's like on never put it on a film fixed. It always reminds me of when someone records a movie on their phone or on a video camera. Uploads it like it doesn't look like it almost looks at the call. He's worse that smoothing feature. And I don't like, I know it's probably incorrect and thinking then you watch like sixty f- PS videos that people put up. Yeah. Yeah. Can you watch? I definitely plays. Let's place where sixty F B S if it's from PC man that usually it's video games though. Most most the footage video games, right? Like, what are you shoot? Between the games in. I shoot sixty four K on my phone. Yeah. Sixty video. A sixty f- PS video. I don't mind it. But I definitely notice it when I see it like everything just seems like super super smooth. And it's not necessarily the way I feel about when I see something it's like four K or when high def came out. It was like, oh, that's fucking amazing. That now we have these high def graphics like that. That's incredible. I don't have that same feeling when I see sixty F Bs or like forty eight frames for the hobbit. You know, I wasn't like oh this amazing waiting for this. You know, that was not my reaction. I used to always get us wide Slama guys. But is one sixty f- PS. But it's business division is like mushoo a thousand frames a second that by sixty get a cut up its way foster than if divided by twenty four twenty five. Yeah. I finally saw speaking of like frame rate and stuff like that. I saw spider man finally into this metaverse. Yeah. I still haven't seen. I really want this. And we already bought me you and me I saw it on Saturday. So unless I saw okay good. I said I wanted to but fuck that is a beautiful. It's awesome. Fucking. Greg emotions with him. Won the Golden Globe last night at one it won. It beat incredible to swimming front of your fucking exit. What else did it be? What is the enemy? This year wreck it Ralph two incredible to something else. And then another thing and then spider percents. Another thing. I played really close. I don't watch any fucking award shows. You know, what I found out though, Gavin doesn't watch animated movies. I don't typically really not even like the animatrix. No. I just don't really go foundation in like long form. I think. It's less the CG stuff. More like the handwriting stuff. But I just not these days. I just lose concentration from it like mine king. As a kid. I was fine with it. I feel like as I've gone older. It's like I find it really hard to watch anime or look an animated film. Even like like, you said you never seen the incredible 's which to me is one of the best films animation or not. And then we'll show what it is. I think are just like. Seeing real people on screen, and I also like to figure out how they did stuff. That amazing. It's like someone just drew it. But with real live action stuff, usually it's like, oh, they had to put a camera do not like computer generated effects, computer, animation automates too much like colossus is completely CG is distracting to me. You only get I don't even like, I find it very difficult to look at ironman individuals movies. I feel like you'd be because there's no real suit. Fuck you because you said you said the animation takes you out of it and bring. Well, the first movie he was a real suit. It was like the new age down. So I get mad. It's okay. It's a lost call. But you're saying how animation you say it takes you out of it. But then when you watch a film in live action, you say you're trying to figure out how he did everything. Wouldn't that take you out of it like if you watch an animated film, you're not trying to think about how they did thing is getting I'm still thinking about the film? I feel like a lot of time. I have quite low my mind. So it's nice to sit back in like just think about this film. But without a mation sometimes I just end up thinking like, whoa, I'm going to do offer this movie. So I'm not paying attention. I think it's just like. I've never been diagnosed with any ADHD. I don't think I have that. But I just it. I just lose focus from the movie when it's not people you need to see a real face to give it attention. I don't know why that is never used to be the case. But like, I mean, I guess it's probably not as close, but like some animated films are so great that it almost looks like a real person in something. Yeah. It's it's it's different with with more of the CG looking stuff. Yeah. As opposed to like, the what your favorite animated. Aung swigging beer, Jen episode one. Comes out in nineteen days. Really? Wow. I say that they'll have been lost watch. That was might've been blue. I guess that counts is automated, right? Sammy show. Yeah. Even when it was inhaler. Yeah. No. I mean, it's just a Michigan is a different kind of animation. But there's no other any other way to classify that show other way, other than the animated shows, we actors you live rented see Jia, I was on that too. When people talk about reverse blue. In fact, there was a some post immune posts that made the top. I saw it m show, but you're on animating it what's that? It's an animated show that you just didn't animate, but there were animators who made those. But but you personally profited other people's hearing, it doesn't really fit in that. And it's funny because one of the comments was that's that's. One of the best machine and most of all time like there, really aren't them. It's a weird category to just make all five. Michelle people wanted machinery to be a bigger thing than it was like we were always doing interviews of like how this is going to be this art form that everyone's using this. It's like this didn't happen. What happened with some company just, you know, name themselves after it and confuse the hell out of everybody, vile. So, but I really liked that because the post on Reddit because I love to go whenever red versus blue shows up somewhere. Also, I loved you go in any kind of like women's a photo of a big cat. You know, like outline or something I'll always click on that. And there's always that person pretty far down says looks like a Puma. I kind of like the fact that for a group of you for which we have ruined a word. Is ruined for some people. Like, they will always come around to that. Yeah. And a love that. Because it's like when I go in there into that Reddit thread of the red versus blue me, which wasn't a reverse blue on at all like that wasn't a seen at all from just a quote from a different meme that. I saw I read it was like I don't fucking remember that sounds like something Malley would say does. But it was. Yeah. Somebody called it out because they said doc would never push that hard like he would just be accepting. It's a good point. Good point. But when I go in those comments, it's just like people doing one quote after another. Yeah. Read verse like some of those are like fifteen years ago sixteen years ago, and it makes me super proud because when I was in high school, we were going to blockbuster video store, you know, and we would like figure out we were gonna watch. And the same thing happened every single time. We went to the video store is we're looking everyone's holding up like this is like now, I don't wanna fucking wash road warrior, whenever you know. And somebody inevitably would hold up Monty python and the holy grail. And then what we would do for the rest of the night was just say Monty python quotes. And that's it would just like we go through. And you you knew someone's going to take the next one you wanted to do right because we just knew that things. So well in a felt like this, even though it was really Monty python was really I think well known holy grail. Still felt like this underground kind of cool, man. Yeah. It's really felt like not a lot of people knew about it. But then all my friends were like quoting and stuff like that. So I love I love to go in those. That I still get proud to this day. When I go in there and see like people quoting stuff that are out, you know, ten fifteen years ago. Yeah. Now. Now, they holding up red versus blue DVD's mind you. Mind. You remind you experience that I had you know, I feel like I never stopped quoting the stuff. I could when I was a teenager. I still quote like, fines, and and Simpsons. Yeah. My growing up years that stuff is like locked in a special place where it's like stuff after it will come and go, but I'll always courts from them. I made I had no idea this. This about Gavin either. We're at drinks the other night. And I made some joke about like like someone changing their name and brought up Phoebe and friends saying like, oh, my name's Princess conceal a banana hammock and her husband, and she had the show is name crap bag and then Gavin goes season ten episode for. What the fuck? That's right. I I've I've seen a lot of episodes of friends. It's my go-to sleep show. Yeah. It's my some photo for the Seinfeld Snagville quotes all the fucking time. Also, vine like, I make vine references a lot like Seinfeld and vine are the two things that I have this encyclopedic. Knowledge of do. Seinfeld. Simpsons? Yeah. All the time. No on you all the time is which one. It's wet member. Mickey Kramer's friend. Yeah. He had to go to the hospital because he took forty aspirin and Seinfeld goes did he overdose and Kramer goes? No, it's just too much. So I think that the weirdest line. But it's so funny to me I say that all the time when someone like is this like there's too much or something. That's too much. We started pick up on it. My favorite serenity now. Yeah. Always the friend. When I saw something recently where was called the serenity now was the name of a ship, but far more. So no serenity is the name of the ship on that. Maybe I'm mixing members renting now just came up in something. Maybe if I'm going to remind me something just recently featured serenity now haywire. Hey, why don't think of it in about two hours after the podcast? The prophecy is. I think I think you're creek. And I think you're commenting before the the livestream hits. What I saw I saw you make a coming out of the video had gone out yet you're living in the future. What video? She's in the chat. She's chatting. Oh, and she's listening live, and then everyone ROY. She's like thirty seconds ahead. But videoed up we put up a tick tock this video the video that we're on right now we played video, and she was talking about a video that we played this is a video. Hey, speaking of video are we state? We have a talk about her new video game. Yes. Oh, I'd love to talk about thousand nineteen in general. We let suck by the. A couple of things. I mean talk about it. Yeah. Fucking just talk about two thousand nineteen. I'm so excited about because everything everybody knows about Jen lock which is coming out in nineteen days. Seventeen seventeen days. Bedtime seventeen. When this comes out the podcast comes up. Correct. So do you adjusting even your your? I was thinking in the future judgments on the fly. But. There is we've had something in development for a while. Now, it is probably one of the newest departments at rooster teeth still but have been around for a little bit of time. Now, it's Russia's games. And they were the group that developed ruby grim eclipse, which started from somebody who was a fan of rubies, did it. And then we help take it and then develop that team developed and turn it into very successful game. It's been around for welcome. Really? Well, and we went to them. We said, hey, we want you to follow up the success of ruby grim. Clips with something of your own something original, not based on anything that is a show at rooster teeth or anything else. And so they've been working on their own original game for about two years. Now, it's been about two years, and it should be coming out in two thousand nineteen so super excited about exciting. Let's talk we I think we're allowed to say the name. Oh, we can we can say the name. So hopefully. Name the name of the game is a vicious circle. And I think we have the with her. So it's coming out later this year. And do we have any of that? Maybe the concept art of footage, and it looks just couldn't wait to play it. Yeah. Yeah. Hundred split we had a I. Played on a building in a long time ago. Maybe a year ago, you know, before the art was settled, and the game's changed a lot and we had a play through a couple of weeks ago, and how long do we play for like an hour hour and a half. Yep. And the time flew like I was going to play this sad. Why did you get to play because I'm Gus? And I was sad when we were done, and it was like, that's it. They have to get back. We were using the development machines you have to get back to work on the game. I wanted to I really legitimately wanted to keep playing the game. They showed us a little I think it was like almost like a trailer slash gameplay plays Rouge at our hands in December. And I was just captivated by it. Like, it looked so much fun the graphics. I know is not like the version that they showed us. It wasn't complete complete. Yeah. But it looked like something that I'd actually wanna play and I don't play video games. That meeting itself was crazy. That was a dick load of people to the all hands twenty eighteen end of the year meeting. Yeah. Yeah. It's pretty. A lot of people. We did that live show the night before it, and then you guys had a rat party. And I I was like I gotta go home because in like twelve hours we have the end of the year meeting, and I had like forty minutes of presentations that I had to be prepared for to do on stage. And normally at a company meeting, you know, historically, have been like, oh, just wing it or whatever show. But now it's like four hundred people four twenty pm, but they all have the same attitude now, I know I know you're in a big group of people off the pedal you to look like, yeah. You want to inspire confidence. And people know we don't see everyone who worked here every day. There's a lot of people who you know. I don't see maybe once a month that, you know, wait, if this is the opportunity for them to learn, you know, everything that's going on. You wanna make sure it looks good. Something never happened to me before people who worked here, we're getting pages with me because they work at the other place. They've never met me. Yeah. I was like Madison crazy that we we have people working here who wanna picture with me. Yeah. Is it like because like yes, it was crazy? But who are fans of Richie's have come to work. I felt like it just happens all the time. Hello. Yeah. I guess just although I it'd be weird. If I hate issue with you, my first of all your pictures with me. So one more thing I'll say about the game before last thing. What say it is a multiplayer f- PS. So and it was built to be something that we think people can play together and hopefully enjoy together joy, right? Because let me tell you something whenever we did the play test. We do it at in the games department. Yeah. Which is also where other people are working nearby from other departments like screw attacks right there as well where they are. And I always have to go around to all the other desktop politics after we play tests 'cause I just like, I'm shouting. I you fucker is what I yell more than anything else. It's a lot of fun. It's a ton of fun. And I can't wait until people can be able to play it. So later in two thousand nine hundred ninety million I will have throughout the year updates throughout the year. They didn't go with my name. I pitched a different name for that game. Don't don't don't even don't even put I'll wait till afterwards after we're done. I like my name, my they really pitched halo. Really, really good. Your names. Get shut down a lot six. The what like a done, Jeff and drag us. When he was so bad gun. Jevons rang is great. You have a here's here's halfwits. You have a suggestion for always open when did or not to go back and look at my notes, we usually when Jeff has it showed. He's trying to come up with a name for achievement hunter. I'll just like throw stuff at him. Jeff had a great name for treatment hunter ghost. It's me. Jeff. That's that's great. And I remember I wanted to one of the names I suggested to him for here's an halfwits. He actually liked was orange is the new chaotic evil. I mean, there's so many the Salata dungeons and dragons shows like all the creative takes on DND of kind of taken a critical role. That's great name. I imagine. There's a lot of DND shows on the internet. Yeah. Anytime you tried you something with dice or rolling with it. But no one is used done Jeff drag. Hopefully, nobody ever will. It wasn't initially. I hadn't pitched here's an halfwits. Then he might pitch was half would heroes. Okay. And then it got changed to heroes and halfway twits and creates kind of fall the same something in something. Before. Now, here's no other. I o one of fun fun house did like they did a three sixty video of dean d really early on. It was back when member they're doing the funhouse cartoons with like the mother, it'll muppet style things. I thought here's in half with. I did they did the D Lawrence is here actually for some reason here. I don't know. It's okay. Let's say that lords walking around here a summer had some meetings here. Yeah. But he's in town telling him. Tell them. What didn't you invite on? I didn't know he was years. I I didn't hear you text them. Don't we have people who are supposed to let me know when people are in town stuck my finger food. We we could have had him. You're asking people jacked off to Lawrence. Don't put the don't. Can I vote non? Yes. So you have to do it verbally while we're talking about CS while we mentioned it. Jerk off Mur verbally. What does that mean to admit? If you've done it. Oh, I'm not doing. We're talking about. I've not jerked off the Lawrence. Sorry lawrence. Mr zantac. I. I was looking at X boxes 'cause I had my I have I bought an Xbox One x when it came out, and and it should my old Xbox One. And I put it on the treadmill, and it's having problems. It's like it's having issues. Gus. So I thought maybe I'll just lergy and get another XBox out there. So and see how much it was another one ex. Yeah. I was gonna next. S because there's like two hundred twenty bucks or something and a one x is five hundred is it it's five hundred bucks. I think they had some holiday deals that probably just expired. I'll blow your mind here, buddy blade mind. I wanted to go look at it. And I looked on Amazon because everything from him zone. When you go to buy next box won't ex you now have to customize it you can get one with a one terabyte drive. That's the base one a two terabyte drive for I think, like seventy bucks more. But then they have a version. That's got a one terabyte SSD row if it's from Microsoft, I didn't. Yeah. No. It's a one terabyte SSD internal Xbox One x and it's, but it's like eight hundred bucks. Let's say the point wasn't going to load games a bit fuss. I'm just curious. I know they did this. And I'm curious if anybody has an Xbox One x SSD. So I'm looking at it here. HDD basic specs to tear by HD maximum space. No, one should get that one terabyte SSD max space and speed. That's obviously not maximum space. The two terabytes has maximum spe Maximus CD's space with us. We have two different items that here that say maximum space true. Through it makes getting both. Right. And you're not you're not get like eight terabyte drive for not that much you might as well. Just get one of those. But eight terabyte drive is an SSD the SSD would make it much faster. No, I'm saying that the two terabyte hod Dr option. Oh, a rip-off. Yeah. But some people just don't want an external one like I would rather have and maybe pay a little bit more for two terabytes internal versus two terabytes. External eight terabyte throw off the if you're sticking in entertainment center, like under you're going to fucking most people don't care most. You'll get who cares. All depends on how you have it set up. Yeah. Mine's a cabinet just have the why coming out, and it's the same here. I wouldn't give a fuck. My never see it in my wall. For the whole behind the TV. So I did I put to Bill timbers put arm in it ahead to put timbers in it. I to put something to touch the arm to I thought Tim, but was plural. Tim. What's what's what's one timber? Timbers? One point. What uplink? Yeah. Isn't it? The sounding isn't it? What you say when something's falling over Denver, right? Gavin thing start. I would walk up. He'd be sitting in a chair, and I would just go rich timber. I forgot about that. Never done him. What was their pucks? You jumped on him. I tried to jump on him. But as I jumped over the table here, I lost purchase with my foot fell must purchase. Oh, man, by the way, you hit the ground hotter and foster than most normal Grevy affected objects enchant Jimmy sixty four let us know that one timbers equal to five. Tim's. Thanks. So Jimmy sixty four appreciate them. Tim Hortons or equal to five Tim. How many Tim bits tummy Cam? That's one Tim Tam. What was the thing from the ad read like Tig boroughs tone? Can't forget it Gavin. You can't possibly afford. If ago how many ticks tone one. Excess as I've said so. Anyway, the reason I like having eight tube is I just move it around to XBox this. However, what the fuck are using eight terabytes for on an XBox? Just like never delete the stuff you download rebel the games. I don't know. I I feel like I've every now, and then I have to manage it. Like, oh have you played that game in a while? I used to do that. I find so often that I would almost immediately need to play a game. I've just right. And I was like. Happened again, and like five times I was like I should really just by. Oh, you were just doing it for work, basically that makes sense. Yeah. Dan would come over Bill. Oh, we never finished gives a little four. It'd be like I still eat that last week. Let me download it just stuff like that would happen. Yeah. I get it. No one ever done. Like a study to see what is the environmental impact, energy wise of data transfer like if I'm trance if I spend all day every single day for a month. And I download a hundred gigabytes a day for one month, I'm using more energy in that month than I normally would like there's there's something you're you're right. You're disc is writing, but you're discus spinning anyway. Mainly think about the data transfer is just energy neutral data transfer or so miniscule doesn't matter. It needs processing power to move the right, man. We call is then we could do this. It'd be super tedious and you'd probably be a tiny amount. Hot drives on always spitting there. Or if you have an SST, it's even more negligible hard, drives are spinning unless you it's been when you need to access them. I always disabled. Okay. So you was always spending always being well like is cloud computing, and we're now moving into a culture where most people have their stuff in the cloud. Not actually a real cloud. I just learned that it's. Cloud is plural. Eric sent me something, but Clough carbon price of cloud computing. Oh, there we go. So is here's what I'm wondering though before you read and get the answer. There is is cloud computing, more efficient. Everybody put yourself in the cloud than wasting the space and the resources distort a locally as kind of like everyone has their own car versus it's more efficient to have mass transit, even though the vehicles themselves put out more pollution, like a bus puts out more pollution than car. Anyone uses only the cloud the today, but they use their local less cloud is like a supplement. Some of the newer version get mcelwain with your desktop and your documents and everything are on. I cloud automatically. They also locally on at least one of your machines. It's mere but it's constantly synchronizing them, right, dude. The guys that I worked for in the telecom industry, we do an internet stuff and everything talk about computers, they go. Everything's just gonna go back to terminals. Eventually, I was like air full shit people. Do people are going to have troubles and just they'll have their own data people put stuff on their computers. But I could totally see that like there's like those consoles where you're just streaming. You know, they they've had a couple of different versions of those one of those will take off where you don't actually own any games you to stream games over the internet to play casually. Maybe some games anything competitive when the latency is an issue, but we'll see we'll have between their own one. Never mona. Once this is gonna sound really fucking pie in the sky. What you start to see widespread adoption of five G networks in edge computing. It'll really eliminate a lot Lindblad. Didn't you say that you got five G? What was that? Yeah. Come on here. We can you stop directing. IT related services account for two percent of all global carbon emissions roughly the same as aviation sector. What's bill? Oh, wow. That kind of makes me feel bad. I feel bad about keeping a local copy of my games downloading Delina mentality mad about in like sake sixty or seventy percent of it is like four ships. This was dealing with the Atlantic. What was as of April twenty fourteen fifteen? Yeah. So it's I'm sure it's higher. He got five G on his phone. There's no five G and often so Android just put out a update eight point zero. And it's close it's five G E. So you're liar. Whatever that e all my phone, it does he. Whereas and six it's five megabytes faster. It's it's really not much to be in the city even out in outer Austin, it shows up signals really poor decides four G is now five G starts issuing icon. Changing software updates AT T starts popping up. With five G changed. The name of what we already did this with transitioning to. They just change us. What's it'll t e. TNT by the way. I don't know. We have to say we don't know what we have. Since we work at ATT would just as many of our company. We're Warner Brothers name. Welcome to the five G pod. Yeah. So I mean, even Peter pointed out a few other people. So like it is five Jan? And now they're going to pull this up in a moment. But it is five G E on the top of my phone. Okay. But even if that's just the fancy way of saying four G LT. The other one that actually has five gene not the seats that you already about it. When you got it. I thought it was actually five, gee, I didn't think a year and a half old phone was going to get it. I thought you'd have to buy years up. You're supposed to have it wasn't ready. Am radios for the incident in the town. I lived in England that is lovely very fun. Joy those extra enjoy enjoy your new five megabytes per se. It's all good. It's pushing an update that just gives you a new name. I love it. Maybe it was an accidental update. Reside. They they saw Instagram iphone eleven by the way. It's right. We got the circle on it. Just in case you missed it. What do you think the east ends? I want to say Michael you dodge, the bullet here because your phone is charged at seventy eight percent, if you ever take a screen shot at your phone and put it online. It's one of those things where like would hold you say charge your phone, George your phone, if you're under like thirty percent, these people act as if their phone is never below twenty percent like blames talking to about the people who look at feet it. I don't know why this creeps me out so bad. But it really creeps me out when I post a photo online and people comment on other shit in the photo like they're just staring at the SPO after look at everything in a photo before I put it any like, oh, what's that? What's that on your nightstand? Is that a couple of water? It's like, yeah. What could you posted a photo? And you had like flow nays on your desk. Remember that people like what say that green container? Guys. It's allergy medicine. Humans have to use things. And I know people are going to do it, regardless of what anyone says forever whenever you take a photo. And there's someone in the background who's making a face like some strange in the background has just like talking. So they're going like, an everyone will fucking crop in on that person and reply to your tweet or whatever it is with that picture. Okay. Cool. I'm I'm in this picture. I'm putting this picture because I want you to see whatever I'm talking about me me me me. Did you guys? See I don't know because people photo this. But I watch the Golden Globes don't like watching award shows are just to didn't win any exactly. Snubbed again. I thought it was a good show. But did you have a tesla? What's that? What does that mean much? Really funny tweet. It was I remember it's not the awards is the work and the effort you put in sincerely Steve much into time going. That's funny. But. Did he went to Golden Globes? There was like five G. Where's he wouldn't want? On the to do. Choice award. You just call it a Golden Globe. Yeah. But on the on the red carpet. I is it a red carpet for Golden Globe. Yes. Some as you'd like blue the golden road black is it a golden. There was there was a a must have been sponsored like it was a girl the Fiji water and she kept like creeping into people's red carpet photos, and he was like, yeah. That's kind of weird right? What does she do a ton of photo? She that's odd. I want to go to like Diddy images archive and just like look at all their Golden Globe photo. See if there's any without her directly at the camera like she's aware. She's doing that. I know who is she she and actress somebody's a ghost. I'm sure they paid her to stand with PG one. I know, but like what's up background? She just someone probably wants. Remodeled or something she died seven years ago. She water. Everybody knows her face. Yeah. That is great exposure as your feet, so. You think she walked them with that Fiji water later, Jim? Jim. Thanks. Thanks. Wasn't plenty year. I of got out of the way he's second week in Davos, that's strange though to have a sponsored product on communist any different than having in the step and repeat having logos there. Yes, that's tightly. It's exactly the same thing. No, no, drink the step and repeat. What's a good point given? I don't think about that. Well, it sponsored by Cadillac if somebody drove a Cadillac right down the middle of the red carpet that'd be seen that they probably put cars on the red carpet as well. The videos of the cause rolling ties on the carpet, and everyone goes. That'd be what that'd be like are. They like do. It's been out like pull the carpet out lugs the cop car filler. It's young who's the carpet. Everyone just like. That video of that that Asian guy who has like a cloth over him with two teacups something over his project and he pulls the sheet in. Really have you seen the one? He did with the ball the pendulum is that thing guy. I think it's the same guy with a fan. Like he's turns the fan on like accelerates and like. Yeah. I got it looked pendulum pendulum Gelo. Pendulum pendulum. Well, it pendulum pendulum pinge pinch contingent. Look at U Penn. P E N J. And still still paying you actually asking me at us about paying pronunciation Pinna Jhelum, the J in it with a pronunciation for me. There's no J in the woods the pendulum. Pendulum pendulum right pendulum essay word enough times. It makes no fucking change say indoor endure in your you're you're still Eric's. Last name. I tried to spell his last name. You gotta harmless names spell now know how to spell it. What is it about door but Doerr, but it's pronounced the door. But you're it's pronounced but doer. So I suppose to be a deal. You are everyone. Does that is incorrect I have a rooster teeth badge here that as it misspelled. Welcome to the club of people at route who worked here for a long time who still get their last names miss his badge me, Jack Patillo, it's five G. So. Gets only in the city. That's it. Maybe they're gonna push a software update to fix the spelling and change the letter on it do my best. It'll it'll go fast. Thanks for watching HBO guys. This show during the Golden Globes last night. There was a commercial for HBO and all this. I have coming up twenty nineteen and they had some footage for their watchman TV show. In that in that commercial? I didn't realize they were that far along with also spoil the big thing game of thrones. From in my opinion. I get that they selecting what's the previews to show. But I was a little maybe not though, maybe the creatures the show didn't have say over what the marketing department show, but they showed a little clip from game of thrones. In that montage that I like what I'm talking about. No characters talking to each other. Oh, yeah. Yeah. That didn't like that bit. I haven't seen it. I need to see one day. It'll like game of thrones. One thing is a big deal me game of thrones is when two characters get in the same place. It's that doesn't happen that all day game of thrones, faraway. You've been following these two characters for years, and eventually they're going to meet, and then they showed a preview you like that fucking moment characters who've never met, right? We're like having. You looking at each other in the I think he's he's not met yet. Well, the person who's been the furthest away generis for a long time. He's been gone since the beginning of the show, she started off in one of the land. She's only back recently only just recently back. So her meeting people she's kind of like this legendary character heard about this tar Gary in kid. Did she meet nets, doc? No. Well, maybe she did. Will they ask you life? We'll see any predictions for games around a lot. It was like, eight episodes, six up six episodes. I think they're six, but they're all like movie length to our episodes. Yeah. Oh, let me so good. Do you think game of thrones? We'll do a fortnight crossover thing. What do you mean? Like there'll be like like white offers end in fort. So is it that don't think they'll do. I don't think it gave it thrones. They'll be like that afforded have like the wall. Like a wall or something like that? Now winter winter's coming. Didn't didn't put a winter's coming thing walls coming to Britain allergy did he know Seehof the wolf O down? The defense people use in the wall did work for years. Well defense is the wall falling dad was a bad thing. Because it led him to punch of people that they didn't want to be there. So maybe it's not the best. The thing is dragging dead. And who knows? Yeah. I mean, he's seventy you go give him that. It's also actual evil. People trying to come through the wall. Exactly the shutdown though that's going on right now. We're in day what? Now, the shutdown seventeen seventeen. This is something that was a new concept to me because I don't know if I've ever I don't know if he does like the UK government ever shut down on March twenty ninth will they go. But it's with the government employees are just not getting paid though right in the still have to work for some reason to articles. Well, not everybody like the national parks are falling apart, and they fell apart really fucking quickly. Because people just kept going to the national parks, even though there's no one working at the national parks. So they're having problems you expect like with trespassing to some areas that are normally guarded trashes. Now is just the national parks of being overrun with trash wasn't there. A suggestion that people who didn't some government officials say that people who visit national parks for ticket bag of trash out with them. They honestly if you're visiting national parks, you probably someone who understands conservationism maybe don't fuck and throw. Your trash into a dumpster. Where clearly no one is maintaining that dumpster. Also, the sewage in all these places now like completely destroyed. So it's just like, they the the I think that that read the person who's was talking about it since it's gonna take millions upon millions of dollars to rectify this that they know they're not gonna get and it's gonna take years to undo the damage that just sixteen days of Dan or art like some TSA agents. Yep. Going to quit or walk off the job. I think they can Seattle the recall. Yeah. And I think like in New York there was a scare today that they're just going to stop working talk around overprice show on that plane sick off without TSA probably or that for find private security to supplement. But who's gonna pay for that? That's a lot of training really fast. That there are some airports are leaving the us who do not who've opted out of using TSA and who instead use private security contractors. I will not could those government. I think they're I think airports have the option not to I will not often say very positive things about the TSA. I. I don't really like them. They're not really government agency. You know, they're just the contract, right? That they have to do that. But they're paid by the government. Yeah. But they're paid by the homeless Curie on. I don't believe they're part of the apartment maybe a contract than department, but they're not government employees TSA umbrellas. And for those of you who don't live in the city of the people who run the security checkpoints at airport. Twenty two US airports use private firms for security screening onto why I will say though, those people go into work everyday, not getting a fucking paycheck because the shutdown and a met jobs hard enough when you're dealing with travelers where everyone is just irrationally angry already. And it's like they're doing they're going every fucking day working full shift and no paycheck, dude. And then it's not even guaranteed to be paid when the government opened. Yeah. It's like their heroes, dude, they're keeping the country running right now. Because if they don't show for work, the planes are taking off it's a domino effect where if the planes are taking off at one airport than other connecting flights are getting to the next one or the other flight can't come into land. It's yeah. Huge cascading problem. Yeah. I mean, even if let's say TSA go. Goes down in like say Seattle, they'll walk off the job, which why wouldn't they honestly if they're not getting paid? How how long if you're watching? How long would you continue going your job? It's like, we're not gonna pay women patriots seven days, and we don't know if you're going to get paid for that missing paycheck. I feel like if I knew it was guaranteed that it'd be back paid doing it. But gives you Cooley. Yeah. I'm thinking about like, yeah. If I knew for sure it wouldn't be I don't think I would go in. What would be the point the calling in sick? It's like are. They calling in sick. Are they just not going to a job that they're not being grateful? I think the fair is that if they if I'm not getting this money. So I'm gonna go work. They then wouldn't have a job when they come back. Right. Which is you obviously want to job guarantee of back pay. Or is that something that's still kind of? I don't know. I really don't know. We'll Gordon gavitt says, it's a it's a question, Mark. Yeah. I think for different departments is not guaranteed. Wasn't also NASA kind of shut down like when the when that satellite did a fly by right after the new year. It was like a skeleton crew people working there just to maintain communication, and there's people I think we have to volunteer to help mix. The. Stays up and stays alive. Although I feel like a lot of NASA jobs would be more passion based I bound. Paycheck, the still. I know. Yeah. But it's still like nothing's going to land on a planet soon. Kind of thing. Yeah. It's like, oh, we worked for, you know, fifteen years to get this thing go by the planet. But I got the day off. I can't imagine that taking place was the longest US government shutdown this, zinc zip. Yeah. This is what was really for this. I think it was like eleven or twelve days and Trump forty said that he'd be happy to keep it shut down for months or years. Tell you what NASA needs Jim nasties take this time off all get together and the only to work on their fucking high fives. Because I'm always embarrassed by the celebrations, whatever they fucking find water for the billion time on Mars or whatever they're doing and they all like cheer. And then they do that. There's always the bad high five somewhere in that. There's always the bad high five, you just think of this just because it's like, you know, if they're things flying by the planet. They want to be there for their back. On the day. They're not gonna skip that way to go there and shoot a bunch of successful. Hi, five videos that they can play into. No. Look at the elbow. It's with that works. Yeah. The the longest actually was twenty one days. Okay. December fifth nineteen ninety five to January sixth nineteen Ninety-six Clinton up the second longest was eighteen days seventy eight and we're gonna we're gonna bless that one though, we're we'll get second on this one for sure right? Third was sixteen days. But I think we're there already right now. Yeah. And he said seventeen today. Right. I think so. Yeah. Well, stock markets fucking crazy too. Yeah. Stock is way down way up way down. And they went up on Friday and went up one to head of had a really good day. A really, yeah. The dollars having trouble today. It's up. It's up today. Okay. Dollar was having trouble today. Right. Right now, I'm looking at up. Did you see that video that snoop Dogg posted about the government shutdown and Trump MO we can't play it on the podcast because there's some language use that would be an appropriate for the show, but Boca? Yeah. Sure. Snoop Dogg stamos catchphrase you bugger. But basically it was nuke dog. He put a video on his Instagram's saying that if you're affected by this government shutdown. You're not getting paid like don't vote for Trump in the next election said a lot more angrily than that. But. You know, it's a it's a point. But they congressperson she said a peach the motherfucker and then single Jackson came out today and defended basically, certified her use of the word motherfucker unto knock your has the authority for mother authority saying mother fucker he's like I endorse this basically he's like this good use of motherfucker. It's crazy. It's crazy out. I'm looking at market was slightly up today. And this is this whole trade thing. I think that's the that's the other question markets. Like are there is this trade war with China? I'm gonna continue are these terrorist gonna extra take affect or are we going to see a deal made because we're running out of time with ninety day reprieve. Nobody I don't know. It's funny. Like, I think most people I I wouldn't even know what percentage of people invest in the stock market direct like what percentage of people take money and having account where they trade stocks. But I would think that a lot of people who work have retirement plans or pay into retirement plans, which do pay into the stock market. And then like even though they don't directly invest them. They have money died on a mutual fund or something like it's something that the individual doesn't think about, but there is a lot of money that they're waiting for when they retire. And that they hope the market continues to go up. So that they have something scary. It is a dollar starts to fall is going to hurt with trade war stuff too as well. I mean, weird the way. The way falling currency works. Because it's you know, when you're here in the US, and you're just buying things dollars. It doesn't really matter that much, but when you travel overseas, you're taking goods, and I and it really starts to make a big fucking difference in the price that you're paying for stuff or you don't see a directly but indirectly when not go like imports and stuff like that. The stock market your time over other we're on the political repairs. Everybody off already because we're talking about politics stuff. Funny version of politics is you see John back us up again, go all the stuff McAfee, you know, John McPhee, he made McAfee antivirus years and years ago, then sold it, but he's kept his name on it. But now many neighbor and believe well, allegedly allegedly what is strongly allegedly jail because he didn't believe because a lot of money butter of they uninstall McAfee. Back. If you put that video telling you to install it. How did you like either mad that uses name on it? Is like a seller Centric, he came out what he said taxes are really legal and that he has not filed his taxes in years. Right. So he's bragging about no paying, but he didn't believe. Well, we didn't you leave beliefs. I don't know they were looking for him. Yeah. They were looking for the murder thing. But as the US American murder. Saying that about you murder thing. Go play out. We should we should by the website, whereas John McAfee dot com. The world is John. Even if he is an American living in Belize, he still makes money off that in some way better believe it was to pay US tax. Testify. I love lunatics un-american possibly Pantex on any income. Don't you? I love I love high profile lunatics Allama, the musk. That guy's a fucking lunatic lunatic. He's just drilling tunnels under L A. And no it's like no permits that only calling people pedophile. And then saying. Procure first amendment even though he followed up that comment by saying what the guy's not a pedophile. He would have sued me by now. Right. It's like come on, dude. This is your own fucking fault. You gotta own up to it. And then he goes by right, right? Oh, did he. Yeah. Who owns unto LA? Yeah. Right. He must have mission to drill. Linda, batman? So I know like in Texas when you buy property it's a big deal, whether or not you get the mineral rights underneath and you all never do depending on what you're buying try like if you're buying normal house in a suburban neighborhood plot. You don't get those mineral us, so they find gold or they can put oil in Texas, right? They can put oil in your fucking backyards, nothing you can do about where you can't exploited. At least, you know, they might they might pay you a little bit to use the land because have to put the shit on top of the land. Right. You're not you're not making money off the oil. They're pumping out we well anoint up to live around at oil rig. Through. Rent it out as an Airbnb. Photos like a potted plant to cover the fucking oil. We'll give you ever been near a raw oilfield. It stinks was kind of like sulfur. But not quite. Is it? Yeah. It's like a sulfur smell. So it's like going to Iceland. I mean, the earth only has like somebody bad. The earth the earth. B O is sulfur if either sulfur take your pick. In austin? People knocking on one smell really can't for people who can't hear. I did smell that. It's funny. The auto fire department, tell people not to report a guest Mel because I guess it was a smell drifting in from some oilfield outside. The city will usually they have the government to reduce the smell, but because of the shutdown normally the Chem trails come over. And you don't notice it. But they're they're not running as many trails because government shutdown actually did have a guest like and they're like, oh, I guess I don't fucking dead. You got the carbon monoxide detector, do you have a carbon monoxide? Fireplaces. And I wanted my kids room sue. I got a nest good that I have that the nest protect. Yeah. Oh, they do carbon monoxide. Yeah. Yeah. It does. Well, don't they do when it comes on? It goes there's smoke in the kitchen because I put mine in my kitchen here goes the alarm will sound the alarm is loud. Then you like oh shit. Like crazy that in the in the thumb stuff in the thermostat and the addle those things because it has to be higher. It has to be like where the smoke would actually collect certain places where it is coming. I believe so otherwise would have you put it on the ground. Yeah. All my carbon monoxide alarms or a pie. That's a good question. I never I never saw. It would explicitly say put you put it lower your in the installation manual for that particular you where to put it in. If you're if you're ceiling has an angle, they tell you like how far from the top to put it like there's very specific instructions on where it's supposed to go that love if owns had Cubbon monoxide to Texas. Stick it by your ass when you for you. Loud. You guys. I know you don't read Twitter by Twitter. When is tweet at you. Because you don't read you didn't respond to the thing that I did. But Instagram, I'll if you guys saw this but much has this has this. Little procedure little routine that he's got or he falls asleep in for the fire. Now every single the cutest. Fuck I need you just like so wracked out like he's like stretches out as far as he can just sleeps in for the fire and Mike you lucky little print. You'll missing a good law those fireplace videos, the full KFI place video you should do on just mush line in front of it. That will be the most viewed one ever that'd be a good one. That'd be good one. I gotta take a video of he does the cat thing. When you go around the corner early. He does that the picture you posted when you were in the shower and who's peaking through the door? The cutest thing is like he wants to be nearby. But he's scared, but he's scared. He wants to be close to you. You gotta read one thing here. I don't want to receive podcast is also brought to you by the rooster cheese store.

Did you see her bucks? So the bird box. If you haven't seen it. It's not the bird much. That aren't box. It's got Robin Williams. It's the Sandra Bullock, Netflix movie that came out very controversial some people really love it some people like why did he get so much hype? I think more people are just pissed off at it. So popular is that what it is. That's what it seems like they were just some things. I did that didn't make sense watching it. I think the movie was about three minutes too long. I was I was named one mostly fine with it. But there was just something. I don't understand the team like the movie sometimes contradicted decisions. Where it was like why? Yeah. So the issue that I've got with bird box is pretty much. And I'm the only person who has any issues with the movie get out. Apparently, everybody loves get out Misha with Burbach exact same though. Which is I started the movie off. And I watched it, and yes, it was interesting. But it went exactly where I thought it was going to go the entire time. And it was just like even with Burr box. It's told like in a non linear narrative like flashbacks and flash forwards, and it's like when they start the move. They're going to do this thing. And they just they that's what they do. They do. The thing that the whole movie it's like, and yeah, there's the tale of what went wrong as as they go along. But I was just surprised by but to say the premise of her box is there some kind of entity in the world that when people see it it either. And there's a lot of speculations. What is because anyone who sees it dies because they kill themselves. So they go start to exhibit very violent behavior in which they normally kill them says that they see their worst fear, and the theory is that they see there were fears. But you this big speculation as to what the thing is. We piece together some stuff in the book, Eric, and we have that video. So we have a concept of what it looks like piece together from the novel by John maller Mun. And then the Netflix thing as well. So we have this clip of that. Three weeks, dude. Podcast. We just cut in Gus calendar. Gusts in front of the fireplace. My news. News funny shit like that. Shark singing, take me home country road. All my God. That was so great. That was so great. We also did plug. We did RT life video doing the bird box challenge that Netflix urges everyone not to do. And we don't do it. Just watch us. We don't try it at home. I mean thing is they were making the video. And I thought I wonder if your meals done this, and I looked at the same thing happened to us. We we were going to do it because we thought it'd be a fun concept. And then that's when we saw all the posts about people saying don't do this. Netflix is urging people not to it's dangerous Boba, it's liability. Without bit up. See, of course, it is. Yeah. Well, also when you throwing chairs at your friends. Hey, doing it. The fact that you're saying it's the bird box challenge. They're probably just terrified of the liability involved with that. Right. But we did it in a very controlled environment with people spotting the whole time. And we mentioned that in the Netflix recommend being blind. They advise against. Yeah. Well, you know, it's tough when you're a company and like you either their trademark or their logo. And it seems like you're endorsing shitty. Internet video. Literally for the entire control here better. Enjoying that delicious red drink your teeth. What does that? This gatorade. Pretty sick. No need to let going around always time. We're all oh. By the way, my women moving. I went through all my that big kit. I have a pocket stuff my five year. Rations just expired like expired this month what the joins eating them. Oh, so we could we could have had a feast that would have been great for the pump costs. I really want to eat something that's five years old. You know, seeing the eating like Emory's from four years ago. I don't. Yeah. Or people who drink like the guy drink, crystal Pepsi. And there's everybody. Barthes after they do it. I couldn't seems like a bad idea. But the marines are designed for that. But these are specifically five-year rations blades eating it. Yeah. We had one for blink could eat it. But we can't do you? Really? Did you want them? I think it was a good segment. It would be pretty sick. But you've only tried them on the podcast. Did you did this once what I brought the rations and you try and a little biscuits. That are coconut they want expired now, but they weren't expired, but it's just like it's just the same thing later. That's what the test is just take the same jokes. We made three years ago. Did they come? But it's been two years. It didn't happen, right? We can tell the joking. I think you should bring real fast before we're done. I wanted to say something last week. I told you that I was having I had a problem with a package. So I let me get comfortable. This is this the last. Okay. So last last time, we did the podcast. I had two packages that UPS said they delivered to my house my house, and I think what we ended. It was by had called him. And they said it was delivered to somewhere else in Ruutel signed for it at the front. All different the front disc UPS somehow deliver these packages to rooster teeth. Instead of them being at my house. They were here. Do you have an account that has both addresses? I have an account that has my home address. But it does not have the receipts. And they cannot explain to me how it happened. I went to them. And they were like, yes, if a person adjusted it, we would see it in the logs here. But it was just just a Matic the computer muster recognized your name said it to your work addresses, sitter, your house is that the computer they like. Yeah. Was total. Freak accident won't happen. Again, it up and twice on Friday again after that fucking happen to four packages in the last week. I've ordered have come to rooster teeth. So a different name. It's gonna have. Yes. Who knows who you are? And things that you would rather have. No, they said, there's no human intervention it was human intervention. It would have been logged in the system that it's it's whatever their computer. That's scanning it what if you having something deeply personal delivered that ends up dildos here. Also there on boxes. No one's going to open a shit people open shit all the time here. I don't think I've ever had anything delivered here on opened. Through different when your team honor? None of my stuff ever been touched here. I'm not worried about that. But I'm just worried about like what if the computer decides my shit needs to go to a different address. You know, it's like why out of all they can't explain why all the fucking addresses and often is it here. Like, I know I work here. And I'd get shit sent here. It just doesn't make fucking sense that it's choosy arbitrarily sometimes to come here, and it's not all like Amazon shit. It's like from different companies. Let's fucking weird. And anytime I get on the phone with someone like, oh, you got your packages. Okay. Cool. Everything's buying a book as long as they know. I got the package as far as they're concerned the case closed. It is true people with your name. Right. Does it just like eating me any money moves of which gusts get something? I don't know. Still give intervention. That's chaos. So who is Ruutel Ruutel? So. So early when when those delivered we were not accepting packages at rooster teeth. So went to our landlords office AFS, so Ruutel must work AFS or maybe they just wrote rooster teeth, and are you dearly? But that was still stuff that was meant to go to you, my house house and brutal. Had it Ruutel headed rental. Yeah. So I just thought it was so fucking weird. You caught. Let's go you have to get every time. It happens. I called him and they like a bunch of shit. You got the package. Okay. Cool. Everything's fine. Can you say with the package came from y'all come from the same place? No, no, no. So on the original two packages. I talked about where from two different companies, and then the two on Friday, we're both from Amazon did three different places. Can I let us send you mail and see where it goes. Yeah. I wanna UPS's something. Amazon has the greatest packaging in the world. They've got that fucking down to a science when you want to feel Packers off someone's Portugal, right away. If it's Amazon they've got they've got this. They got this tape that's per holds a pack together, but you can tear it by hand the string. They got. It's perfect stringy tape except they have one package. That's not like that. It's the white padded envelope. Get. Can't open that thing you like chewing on it and everything it's like one of those like plastic things rapidly. Sure, it can't do it like like, there's a little tab, you can find cab in there that there's a tab the tab, you can pull your full of shit. The polls show there's packages over that. We're open someone's package on the polls show. All right. We'll find it. We'll personal thing from home. We should see FedEx openness the most satisfying one strip. I just think everyone's that are glued, and you gotta like undo the glue. I also, hey when they have like John IX, and they got that little clear sticker over the scene that you gotta like. Cut under your fingernail, Barbara. I had experienced dates like we talked about the company being four hundred and twenty people. Sometimes we forget how well we know each that. Nice. Nice. Nice. How many how well we know each other that we just have conversations and Barbara ahead. Like this wildly inappropriate conversation. Just like in front of these people. I don't even remember I had this package. I got a little heat gun. I showed it to you. Take stickers off stuff. Greatest thing. I ever bought my life. Ten bucks? I never had to worry about stickers on shit ever gonna it up. But I had it and parv goes which got their dildo. And I like. And I was like, oh, that's what that one. I go I go, they're gonna know dildo. It's a little thing for stickers go. But it reminds me I saw this story about somebody who had a butt plug and had a butt plug and on the back of it. The part that sticks like out of your, but the flange. They attach one of those bring door stoppers. And I just thought it was funny, and so Barbara I just standing here in this lobby talking about but plugs in. In front of employees overheard. You guys having that conversation and forgot about it. Like, I didn't even give it a second thought. Through emails like, oh, that's funny. You had this conversation. I was like, wait a minute. Well, at least you were able to go into a Paul cost and talk about come tribute with around it. Other people by tone.

It's that part of. Thank you. No. Here's my thoughts on this. They're undeniably. There was a Blue Wave last night. It was a huge election for us. If you were to go. So if you were to make a list of maybe let's say like, the ten top ten sort of environmental factors that affect election. They were all working against us. Right. The worst system. Systematically, the map the suppression all of it was so stacked against us. Not to mention the economy is doing quite well. And now, I think that's basically an accident. But I mean. It's usually like if the economy's going like the incumbent party is not punished that badly. But it was a pretty good night for us. Now, I think what I want, and what you want, and what a lot of people probably most listeners podcast want time is like a national repeat Gatien of Trump. Yes, I want everyone to apologize. I want everyone to Apollo I want to twilight of the shit lords. I want them all gone, and I want a personal apology from everybody. We want everyone to put on the day live glasses. You know what I mean? Yes. And they go, and they and they see these fucking goals. It's like it's like it's like we're not living. We're not we're in the Walking Dead universe. Where we know that they're never gonna cure his ambi-. And they're just going to winnow down the characters until we've lost all hope and the show is just really mainly punishment. Are we talking about I curious? I texted you at eight fifty five pm how Sean Casten looking. Yeah. Yeah. Not good. It wasn't good to say. That can good was. While you worried about it wasn't looking good. Then it wasn't looking. It wasn't silicon. Only I have a lot to talk about. There was an election last night. We're talking about. Yeah. Just for our listeners years. What's? So I do wanna talk. I want to talk about the campaign that Alex we're both involved in and I have not lot same pants. I we do have the pants challenge. And you know after you do after you do all this amount of work. You know, Saturday is treat today. And guess what? Guess what traits are getting today? Pants. Well that too. Oh treats, are you kidding? You getting something let like look candy that you could eat treat Wednesday is tweet day. The new ipads plural are coming today. A shit dog UPS is going to fuck shit up today. I got a lot of stuff coming today. What am I pay pigs that what I am? Well, this is the Apple Pay pick power hour. Stop trying to make fetch happen. Didn't laugh at the mean. Everything's coming up mill house. I'm gonna keep going to reference. What's this? What's this is a smile, you're not? You're don't look at you. Right. So listen. So let me get into the castle thing for for minute. So you guys went talk election. So I've spent oil by Friday listeners probably talked about this before. But I spent almost my entire mine tire. Life has been I've been very interested in politics. And like the motivating thing that got me into politics was I guess was the war in Iraq. And I was really really mad about that. And then I felt like it was very sort of kill Bill situation. Right. Just wanted sort of vengeance. On these on these goals, like very transparently like lied and murdered people. And I know it was very upsetting. I was at that age where I was like, I was old enough to know. This is how things are supposed to work and then things were not working away. And in my where I grew up. You know, you're not supposed to you're not supposed to be able to lie so transparently just fucking lie and five hundred thousand people die with with a wink, wink into the camera five hundred thousand people, right? Yeah. It was very upsetting. And. And. Yeah, you know, you look when you're you know, it's it was comp-. There was lot compounded in those feelings right for people my age, you'll it was a frustrating time in politics. Like, I continue to the Bush was far more dangerous and worst president than Trump at at this point. Although Trump certainly has a lot of potential to destroy the world. He hasn't done anything as bad as the war in Iraq yet. But. I, you know, in addition that it's all wrapped up in your feelings of being a fifteen year old kid and having no institutional power and not really liking your school. What I mean? Like, it's it's it's all tied up. It's all of a piece, and it's made me feel very small and low, and I was like I don't wanna feel like this anymore. And so I turn my attention to what I could do in my own physically like where I could get to with like, you know, right? You know, locally. And it was it was the tenth district, which at the time included a big chunk of dupage county there, and I spent almost my entire life since that since two thousand and three trying to get a democrat elected to congress in that area. Nineteen seventy. Yeah. Well, well, the tent is been more more flippy. And what happened was we gerrymandered the tenth? So that Brad shiner could get that seat. But the now than we saddled. Six with do page. And that's why I've just been burned by that race. So many times my childhood was watching Tammy Duckworth lose every year veteran lady, I mean now, she's a Senator. So it worked out okay for her. But she goes baby. She'll that that district is a is a heartbreaker it is bad. It's bad turf. It's canvas that turf my entire life, very hard to canvas or very low enthusiasm for the volunteers. It's physically hard to get around. You have to drive off in from driveway to driveway because it's very sometimes it's mansions and some kinda rural. It's a weird conservative district. And that's why going into that room. I just have been spent my entire life looking at those numbers and those returns, and I I was looking at those numbers and Shamas up little bit K. But do you have any one of the other things? It's weird is do page is notoriously bad at running elections and counting. They cannot do it. And in fact in the primary elect. They had a ballot initiative to abolish the dupage county board of elections because they're so bad at tallying votes. And we did not that'd be important. And we did not know the results of that ballot initiative because the dupage county board of elections the election and interestingly that was showing also want an impossible primary with ten candidates. I can't remember. But a lot of candidates. And when I was the only dude running, I think there were seven women, and Sean that's why no I didn't vote for him because I know voted for a woman I voted for kitties person. Anyway. Yeah. I didn't. I wasn't involved with Sean. It wasn't impossible primary. And when I had a lot of friends who are supporting Sean working for Sean. And when I went to bed, I kind of texted them, and I was looking at the votes, and I was like sorry guys looks like it's not gonna happen. And then I woke up in those do page results posted, and he was the nominee. So it was it was a nice surprise. And that's why I went into that. When you just getting to the Casten party, and they hit your showed the CNN results and they had cast in down by a couple points. And I was looking I was frantically refreshing the dupage county results on my phone. And I was like this is this is not where needs to be. And I was like when the rest of dupage posts, it's going to break our hearts like every year. So I worked on this. Anyhow, I didn't want to go to the party. I know I I have a license almost my life at losing election parties. This is your thing. And I went in and they didn't have an open bar, and that's a bad sign because when you don't have when none of an open bar. That's not a sign of confidence. Because because they don't wanna they don't wanna put the Bill if everybody drinks troubles away. Yeah. It's just like, yeah. It's like it's like they know that it's not going to be that great. Anyway, I guess I don't know what the logic is. But it's not true. It's just a funny thing that journal political journalists say, do, you know, the fuck what's the name of the hotel downtown? It starts with the W. Not the w and it's like a cross from. I was about to say cross remind Stein, bagel. But next isn't know where that is no one in Chicago actually knows where that is except me, but it's the fancy hotel with the nightclub on top. And the Romney campaign in two thousand sixteen rented the entire nightclub out had an open bar, and I was there covering it for a class, and for a film and just the confidence and the over things fine. Everything's fine. Even as the results are coming in. And they're just being buried. It was so surreal, and I thought I just is this the alternate dimension. Are we not seeing the same things because the whole crew was obviously, you know, really liberal think everything's note. But I don't think everything's coming up mill house for you. But in last night too. I was making fun of Casey for watching Fox News. But then I turned on Fox News. And it was like, oh, yeah. Even even they're like, oh, this is not good. Oh, bad bad, bad bad. So unlike max, I have not well, yeah. I guess I've always worked on dupage county campaigns nothing bigger than that. Because it just makes me sad. And always do page loses in anything I care about ever. And it was last night was weird because then a half hour later. I just texted as what? Like holy shit. You were very happy. It makes me very upset that a white man can make me so happy said holy holy shit. Holy shit. Holy shit. As what you wrote shit. And it was out of context. Here's here's here's just for those that don't have the super-secret private tax channel, Alex. How Sean looking next can not good, Alex. Ugh. Sometime later holy shit. Holy shit. Holy shit cut. You the the Trump election? I was very sad about the Trump election. But what really brought back those feelings for me of the the war in Iraq. And how it felt to see everything spiral out of control in a really insane way was watching this healthcare votes in the house. Now, listen, I've been through I've lost elections before I've been through it, and it sucks. It doesn't feel good. But I it's, you know, it's whatever you get another chance in years, and it is what it is. And. I was pretty concerned about Trump. But it's nothing like I dunno. I didn't I didn't. I it was it was way harder from me watching those healthcare appeals because it was just so cruel, and there were lying so much and doing it right into winking into the Cameron lying, and it was that same feeling right of like can't believe they're fucking getting doing this and getting away with it. I can't believe that. And I just felt so small, and so and so power was watching those votes a very bad feeling. And you know, I got pitched I think we've talked about this in the program. But like, we get cards or me personally. I get all the time. Everyone has these like. Ideas about oh, I want to start a a national. I'm gonna make a t shirt company that's going to expose the Republicans and win political power for the Democrats starting my fifth concerning a YouTube channel, and it's going to make and it's going to expose the truth. And it's going to put the glasses on everyone. And we're you know, it's gonna fix everything. Or what's another one? I've had that thought I've had mornings where I wake up like the ipod a bed like in the comic, and I go I should start a newspaper. You know, it's like, maybe maybe that's what we need. Amel pins? Really? Yeah. Some swag or something you can sell or buy and. But for change what I would've told them one is. I don't think that's stuff works. If that stuff works than Hillary would be would be president. So I don't think that that's works. And I think what you need to do is sort of earnestly engage in fights all the local Ono, it's triggering. It's like when they when they when they locked Daryl in the closet and played that song over and over same thing. It's for me. It's the what's that those acapella movies that we watched pitch the pitch. Perfect people did that like acapella version that was played at the DNC about ten thousand times. I don't know if any of our listeners were at the DNC, but I have one of those like post hypnotic triggers that they give to Russian spies, and I I'm actually programmed in murder someone if I that if you hear fight song you become the winter soldier defy the following song was made only with our voices. Taivon the window of van. Abort abort abort. But I tried to. So I would I've told people's like I think you need to earnestly engage in these local races. And that's the only way that thing that's going to do anything. And you're better off just like finding your local your local house race your local St Leger and getting involved than you are making up. I don't know some sort of feminist embroidery project or something. And I mean, don't get me wrong. I will buy it. But by too it's just it's not gonna do anything because I want to quote teeshirt, not because I think it's going to people in Dana Rohrabacher district won't. That's that's the thing is like, you're you're making you're you're you're you're making needlepoint for the chorus. Yes. Yes. And I have to say like, I I really tried to follow my own advice, and I tried not to do too much clever bullshit, and I picked up Peter Roskam in the is the closest congressman geographically to me that voted for repeal and all of those votes, and I just decided year ago or whenever those votes. I was like this is my new this is my project now is we're going after all this began. You're crazy wall emigres yard. It has been it has been it's been sitting there underwear throwing darts at a it's been a it's been a long and involved process. We had. To the cast in cave car cards, as has been very involved very involved. And you know, as also as I don't know if you saw, but also as a result of that Peter Roskam has been well, he's he's a he's not listen I've now free to talk about this race, which is great also because during the race, I couldn't say anything on the on the on the podcast here. This is sort of a public forum. I guess, but Peter awesome such a bad guy. He's not he's he's like Ted Cruz. He's like personally repellent guy. And he I heard from one of his colleagues in the house that even the Republicans do not personally like him. Ted Cruz that he has just like a repellent personality and people hate him. And he knew that you couldn't run on his record his disgraceful record of stealing healthcare from his constituents and millions of Americans nationwide and calling global warming junk science and voting with the president ninety five percent of the time. He knew that that wouldn't find district, and he knew that he didn't have anything to offer people. So we spent the entire campaign trying to destroy Casten and everyone in Kastens orbit in everyone who gave cast money, which includes myself. Well, what was sickening? I assume you read the Breitbart article, I didn't actually know I know that it called me an anti Semite. It was the. Was literally what's on Peter roskam's website is worse than what's on fucking Breitbart and more untrue, and I o did you see we're in one of his attack ads? The the twitch thing. I was like oh cool. My mom's side is like, oh, hey, look. What are you gonna do? The all those radical figure. Oh, my wants to stream or lesbian life. Please remember to like subscribe, are you really trying to make an issue out of me. And it didn't it didn't stick. It. Didn't get peace and press releases repeatedly to every newspaper didn't get picked up. So I'm glad that. And why would it right? I'm not I had no formal role within the cast and campaign. Like I raised a little bit of money for the guy. But I'm sure I wasn't one of his biggest fundraisers like I'm just a guy who cared about their private citizen who cared about the rates. There's no there's no story there. But yes, so he so there's an interesting story, but cards where we did. So was a two years ago. We did. Two or three years ago? We did cards against humanity. Eight days of Hanukkah where we sent everyone that gives Hannukah that was and it was a fun. It was a fun holiday campaign. And we did these cards about about Judaism. And you know. People don't know, I'm Jewish, and I have I there's eight of us who made cards and all eight of us are in fact, Jewish and we've hired to head writers. Manage our writer's room over the years in our to head writers Jewish. There's ten people that sort of had creative ownership of these cards. We wrote, and they were all Jewish and we represent a wide variety of Jewish orthodoxies and beliefs and things like that. And there's practicing non-practising different denominations and all that good stuff. And. We will see what happened the year after that target approach. Awesome. Was like, can you do some sort of holiday pack. That's like new for this year. We were like, well, we don't have time to write it. But we give you the ju- cards that we wrote for our holiday thing. They're like, yeah. Great. Give it to us. And we we bundled up, and we called it, the ju- pack, and it was sold in target. It did. Okay. And then it was a seasonal item. And it was a seasonal display of Christmas and Hanukkah stuff. And after the holidays that got taken down and somewhere in there, some people there was this movement of people who started calling it anti semitic complaining, it turns out those people who are complaining about it were in fact, not Jewish. They were evangelical scientists, and their thing was that they said that causing community is making fun of the holocaust one of because one of the cards in this pack is is the card torturing Jews until they say, they're not used any more. Which is of course, not a joke about the holocaust. But a joke about the Spanish inquisition. Musician. But they said that that was awesome front the holocaust. And it got picked up again on Breitbart and some of these right wing sites. And it was so weird because it was a very twilight zone thing for all of us. Because you have these people who are not Jewish who were outraged posting on Twitter and calling us anti semitic. And we are in fact, Jewish and know the meaning behind those jokes it was very twilight zone. And then of course, it was compounded. By the fact, that it got pulled off the shelves after the holidays because it was a holiday item. And then they were claimed this. And now the story now. Breitbart in the conservative press. The storyline is target polls anti semitic cards against humanity project product, or whatever, which is which is just the no part of it is true. But it's also complicated that it's like where do I where would you start to peel that apart because it took me fifteen minutes to explain it to you guys. And that's the thing they would dig into. Well, they're not this right kind of Jewish. Well, actually, there's very. The Mike Mike Pence kind of keeping a list. They don't like that Jews. Oh, my favorite one. The people got mad about is. What was the Anne Frank? Oh here. It is part of inference diary, where she talks about her vagina, which is a prominent part of the book, and it's. He wouldn't it. I was a teenage girl reading that. We were all like like it was it was a anyway. No. I generally think that people who got mad at that. Haven't haven't read? Absolutely haven't don't know that her dad like cleaned up a lot of the stuff. Yes. I don't know to me. Those are smart. Those are smart good jokes that I know were enjoyed by many Jewish and non-jewish people like, and whatever I it's like, I'm not gonna sit here like. I don't want to be like, Ricky Gervais sued. Like, oh, was it was it to g for you? But like it, and this is so it's so fucking weird. And I'll I guess the only thing I would say about it in in closing about the cards thing in particular is like the like, I know there's this whole thing. Like oh. Like, Jerry Seinfeld is like, oh, I can't I can't perform on college campuses. Because like the lib students are to their to PC now for my jokes, which first of all what joke is Jerry Seinfeld. Doing that's triggering the college students. Hey, I like I like airline snacks, right? Yeah. What's material Seinfeld? Doing. What's the deal transpeople? Talk on the drawing leeward live on the puck. But any you know, that aside it's the censorship to comedy and the threat to comedy into the smart jokes that we like is nets from the left like everyone needs to chill out of about PC culture on the left and stuff like the threat is the threat that pipe geology. How that one for now? But there's a lot of bullshit. There's a lot of serious bullshit happening on campuses threat. I would love I actually would love to talk about this in further up because I do not I actually believe, and I think I can convince you that the campus PC panic is a manufacturer Republican issue, and that if you scratch at any particular incident or anything that, you know, about it at crumbles under even the closest scrutiny and the actual threat to academic freedom on campuses is conservative administrators and conservative student groups who who take down liberal professors, and this has always happened and can use dapple. And that's that is it's again, it's and it sounds like there's like, oh, well, there's both sides do it. But it's not like, it's actually not. There actually is unjust persecution of progressive and leftist professors on college campuses that that actually is legitimately happening. There was a woman in north western driven out on bogus title nine charges is an interesting case look at but that's again, that's the right coming after people. And if you I'm telling you, if you anything new here in the news, you Hugh people complaining about like, oh, the college students, I can't believe they're protesting this or mad at this. Or they did this or that or these these PC culture people or whatever I'm telling you scratch at the surface, and it turns to dust in your hand. There's no substance to the stories they are made up their completely made up. What are we talking about? I wanna I wanna eventually get the cast, and I would like to eventually in fullness of time talk about pants, but I want you to I want you to I want you to take your what else, and then they accused us we did this car taxi election thing, but we offered free packs to people who vote which is like the same thing that Ben and Jerry's and everyone does and they Peter Roskam accused us of. Operating in legal fixing scheme on behalf of Sean cast him and said that he that we were being investigated by law enforcement, which is far as I know is not true. There doesn't seem to be any investigation happening. I'm in unless they're already implant already deeply embedded a knock. You know? We like maybe we have a patriots situation a knock what's an operating center. No, you guys. Remember patriot. The show patriot. He's the woman knocks. Yeah. It's a something who cover what is it something? Come and OC knock your air undercover in a company mission impossible type situation. Yeah. I just thought you're saying narc, Rog. No, I'm learning learning. That's his thing. They they have that in patriot. Yes, you're right as two days till season two now. Oh, saturday. Now, Alex, do you think that we might have a knock in here? Who's investigated us for running an illegal vote fixing scheme to benefit? Yes. And the thing is it would be me yet. It would be it would be maturing situation. Would you know, it would you not know the knock is, you know, I think battle circle ACTA. It would be like a four year situ like it would be before it could become activated at any moment. The explosives in the water reservoir, and Ceylon you actually do have a plan. Yeah. I. Oh, wow. Well, well, coming out against take that wrong. She thought that bullshit. Ron. That dog and said it the wrong war. No, you didn't like the finale. That's fine. Stan target. I wanna pants keep going. So so so how does cards against humanity been wrong to the election? What no that's the main one. But anyway, so you feel relieved that that part is over to the thing. You couldn't talk about that part. You feel better about that? I feel I feel so good about it. And and fuck you Peter Roskam, you'll a piece of shit. Nobody cared about your tax on me. It had nothing to do with the race. It didn't affect anything. And now you're out of a job. So I hope that you're happy that that's how you and your campaign and sort of talking about issues that affect people's lives. And I hope you enjoy watching Shawn cast and go to congress and do great things for these sixth district. I have a quick conspiracy theory about why we didn't get in troubles. The thing you're said about this is the thing we were going to bring it all down. No, no, no, no, no. I was surprised about the lack of blowback from the pride pack, and I think it's because most straight conservatives did not get those jokes. They don't know what prep is. I know that's a great. But I don't I don't want to get to go to this. But with the we do for cards. It is very important to us that if it's if it's how do I say, if the pack is like within a subculture that it's written with with by that people in that subculture heavily heavily involved in the writing. So the pack obviously written by Jewish people. We did a pride pack. We we have LGBT writers who worked on it. But we also hired a bunch of new LGBT riders to help write and consult on it. And they did a phenomenal job and their jokes in there that I had to have explained to me. That's not my culture and for you. And it was a pack of while like, but Alex, I think you're right. It's funny. Yes. Yeah. Oh, I think you're right though, that there was a lot of stuff that we flew that flew under the radar really good jokes. Judaism issue, and in particular is so fraught and taunted me, my entire life because they're normal Jews with like social conscious or not the only people who care about antisemitism in Israel. Right. It's such a weird fractured issue. And there's like right wing. There's lots of right wing Jews, right wing Zionists and evangelical Zionist has been a problem with the with the Trump stuff is that there are a lot. Yeah. I've been at odds with them my entire life. And it's it's you know, whatever they can call. I it's crazy. I mean, it's insane. To me, the Peter Rawson called me anti an anti Semite. And it's absolutely insane. I'm a private citizen. I'd I'm not his constituent, I don't live in the district. I had no formal association with the casting campaign. I was just a guy who who was volunteering for him. Like, it's crazy, and then he'd just like attacked me, and my business and said that I wasn't these that I called me anti semitic press conference with Marco Rubio. He's he said Owen Shaw. Shady Sean is associated with Brenda. Max temps in the anti Semite, Dan savage with with little. Yeah. Yeah. Me and Dan savage where his main targets. Yes. He says the bubble Bs. Everyone be happy. It was a good. It was a good night new pants nothing about marine Bacher. Dana Rohrabacher, so many good. The problem is that a couple of the major blob fish, the the come fill blog. We wanted to go down did stay up, which sucks Roebuck went down. And that is that is good. We I did a little bit of organizing for beta and fundraising for beta, and I can tell you. We were never gonna run. I I I was pretty confident that we were never gonna win that race at any point. But it doesn't matter. It was a great it built it built. Lots of good comes out of that race fog machine. We built we built machine. What's that? She came up there to do to his his valedictory speech about how it went. It was like fucking dark shadows. It was crazy. He goes like a rockstar. He's very slender. He's a handsome, man. He's showing he had a fog machine. Now at his sorry. It didn't work out. Now, I would say based on what I saw from. How the beta campaign worked and just looking at the field. I would say at this moment. I am probably personally most excited about about a beta candidacy in twenty twenty that was trending before the polls closed. What I did what I did not treat last night because political tweeting lame. I mean, there's a case to be made for a bit. Oh gillam. I think oh that would be one fucking hell of a ticket, especially because because Democrats are so horny for a male candidate in twenty twenty and that would be that would be to if you're going to go with milk candidates. That would that's a hell of a lineup. We've got dusty. 'cause they're they're real good at having an actual fucking message staying on that message and being positive. It's huge. What about Stacey Abrams? She sounds great. I mean, I'm so angry about Georgia. Could spit right now. It's so it was never is is I know I know I ever seek. No my mouth words. I'm telling you how I feel. I'm not asking you what your opinion is. But I'm telling you is that's fucked up that the guy who runs the goddamn election, the running the election. It's like you were talking about before with like, you can't even count the votes to find out who was competent to count the votes. It's so fucking crooked. You heard that camp himself went to vote. And there was an his voter ID was you've got the tweet from me max. Oh, I did. Yeah. Well, I'm telling you how I feel which is that your opinions are wrong. Oh my God. You win every I'm letting you all this week. Just leave it all in the field. I'm glad you're having fun. I got pants. What else? My my my my water reclamation district race I want. Oh, no. You did. Wait, you were so excited about the reclamation? So it was insane. It was insane. There was so many court battles like the Democratic Party tried to block him from taking crazy. So they're gonna keep going to keep reclaiming the water. Oh, yes, we're gonna we're going to reclaim the fuck out of that. Can the water, man? Get some wrong on hundred. Cast and like I told people at so many times I was like that's not going to happen. When when we were doing the writing campaign, it's not gonna happen. It's impossible to get that many write in votes. And then when there was the court challenge as it's not gonna happen. We're not gonna win in court. And like, oh my God. It was one thing after another with that camp that that's one of the that's probably the wildest roller coaster of any campaign. I've ever worked on for the water water water reclamation aboard of crater Cook County, water reclamation. Notes from people now about how difficult it is to hear the name of the MAC OS operating system version, any other voice than havi. Hey, king of the hill. King of the hill is all. On the new I can laugh at the jokes. Also while you guys were right? Great show. Remember when you told me Seinfeld was a good show. You're checking out the Beatles. Seinfeld's kinda never coming up Friday on the way with a Seinfeld never fly today with today's PC college. You could never get away with those jokes about about superman. Turn you return? No. Next to win this week for once. Merlin merlin. I have a conversation just for you. And I have Mex-Mexico apart is this morning, the super-secret Tech's channel you sent a text saying Donald Trump junior expected to be indicted expecting to be expecting. Oh, he's expecting well. Well, well, hold it's short article. But it's time for my shirt says. Did you see the guy outside the White House? The White House be like employee entrance holding up a sign that says, it's Muller. Stupid. But it's awesome. Yes. Go ahead. So I thought I had the had the cheer up my wife, and so I sent that to her. And I said, I hope this was why was your wife feeling it was a Queen huge night less. Now. I know, but I don't wanna talk. It wasn't what you guys want. This is your show. But you guys wanted an orange revolution where people out your streets, and they did the military parade. You got it. You got me. The thing is I expected to feel very very bad yesterday. And I went to bed feeling less bad. And I feel like that is a win for me. That's that's how you can tell it's you and not us. Now what we wanted. We wanted a broad scale smiling of all the bad people. Now, whether that's logical or not doesn't matter that was the expectation or the hope was that there would be a smiling of all the bad people. Now, the thing is now you can help me because you guys know how this all turned out, but like Heller looks Keller's is going down. Let's testers going to win Rohrabacher. Who's obviously is a fucking Russian spy. I'm so it's gonna lose Katie hill is gonna win. It's going to be in another so many good ones. There's but but but but the ones that it does suck. I mean, just Skywalker loss. Scott, Scott Skywalker. Suck my balls. And he got a teacher. Oh, that's. Oh, that's. He looks. He looks like a composite sketch of food court stop. Whether chicken fingers, chicken nuggets. He keeps getting reelected. I'm sorry. Well, it was my morning, and I opened up this techs and immediately think who is this handsome man in this story Merlin just that reading the bottom of the text. And I haven't stopped thinking about. Divorced. I thought for second that Donald Trump junior looks like a hot divorced, dad. And then I you know, how I am. Candy machine in his torso. What is he doing good? No. I thought I I mean now looking when you look at it bigger. He's standing the weird way and put it like trying to push Zing sticks his stern amount. I swear to God. His nipples must be pointing in the rat. Pancakes, huge nipple. Areola? Normative actual nipples. Areola? The size of a child's fist Louis Titian nipple story. No, wait, wait. I before Alex I want everybody to send me ugly pictures of Donald Trump junior. I need this. I'm freaking out. Just send me the ugliest worst pictures. You gotta you gotta Persia doubt in goop like way, I need to I need to I need all the goop to go back inside me. I need to tell you crank your hog to dawn. And now you need to purge. I've done. Oh god. Eight seconds this morning terrible. Max tell me about politicians nipples, please. You remember it would have to actually have to look this. There's an amazing Donald Trump tweet. You guys know about this. Yes. Journal Trump Barney Frank nipples. Donald trump. Nipple? Oh. Plus, oh here it is from at Donald Trump. Here we go. So it's it's from December twenty first two thousand eleven so long before Trump was like in politics, and he just tweeted, he just tweeted. He just tweeted Harney. Frank looked disgusting. Nipples protruding and his shirt before congress. Very very disrespectful. How my goodness zoo. Is this photo doctored? He's club. Oh, no. It's it's not doctored. It's not doctor. But I just think that's I think that's one of the funniest put Jackson time. Okay. I this is very upsetting. Okay. Close at tab. Semi good-looking pictures. That was that's an unfortunate foot. It's interesting for sure I was just watching the president's press conference. And now, I'm looking at the Twitter about it. All my goodness. He's having quite a day. We he feels like I think that president feels like he restrained himself during the campaign down that he was not at full craziness. Right. He wasn't able to be fully Trump. And he feels like they lost because of that. And so now, I think we're gonna love did not show me love to that. Is they're going to be another big like wave of staff leaving because he's mad at the people who I don't know. I mean, I think largely the staff stories are kind of a distraction from from substantive policy things and try not to I don't know. But it doesn't also it doesn't matter. They're not affective anyway. But. In your world. You've got it all figured out. It's. No, I know compliment day to win. My goodness. You have it figured out for such a young, man. You have so many things figured out. It's really it's a stunning the breadth and the depth of everything uniquely understand Merlin. You want to know what the to the last person who made fun of me wanna know what happened to that? He lost it election. Yeah. Yeah. All right one one final story. So so run for something had a had a huge night last night. I think they had over two hundred candidates win nationwide. I continue to I work with a lot of different outside groups. And I think run for something is in addition to having a great program in a very good vision. Great leadership team. I think that they're very very effective. I would say I'm always listen run for something are the two most effective sort of third party organizations that I personally involved with. And I definitely urge you if you want to keep this momentum going to get involved with run for something. But the last thing I wanted to say why I think last night was was good. And I have such a good. I just have a good feeling in my body. Like, I'm just I'm very very happy and relieved about the results of this election. Are you do I do think it's helpful to take a step back? Take a macro look at how these things work. So the Democratic Party. Has we haven't held the house in. I don't know what it's been. But since what twenty the majority of contemporary American history is democrat executive branch Republican congress. Well, no, I Democrats before Clinton hadn't held the executive branch. And that's what I meant. I guess by contemporary and how to shut up. I mean, I mean look at the the big trends of how these things move through history is like we've had we've I think the Democratic Party has sort of lacked a cohesive vision for really long time. Like, I don't think that the Clinton nights and the Clinton sort of people have a cohesive vision for politics that it's like the best. They can come up with is. I mean, I'm glad they ran on healthcare healthcare was successful for them. But I think it was I mean, I don't mean to sound cynical. But I think the running on healthcare came out of out of polling, and they were able to realize that this is not I don't mean that in the sense of like, yeah. My my kids really sick. And it's pre existing conditions. More. Like, we know this is something that we need to stick with because this will get to the polls. But, but I don't think that's I don't know if that's in their bones. I don't even not even talking about an issue like health care what I'm talking about is like George lay Coughlin like a vision, a big a big idea of people and the universe and the and the world and the story that we're all in together. And that's what captured that is what creates a national movement. And that's what that is. What makes something that survives beyond a single sort of call to personality and Obama, I love the guy, and I work very hard for him. But Obama was a singular cult of personality, and he put you know on. Fortunately, like a lot of the Obama era infrastructure was was this sort of house of cards that only functioned if we had like a benevolent philosopher king in the executive branch. And now, of course, it collapsed the minute that Trump got in there. So, and I understand that there's all these factors if they you know, they can only get done what they get done. But. But I've been I've been waiting for a message of belief something for people to connect with say, here's what it means to be democrat. Here's what it's about to be the party now. Republicans had the same problem after George W Bush, right that Bush had sort of destroyed the Republican brand, and there there was one series of catastrophes after another, and he was very very unpopular to the point where he couldn't even campaign for for McCain, and the Republicans took an absolute beating they lost all three branches of government. And then, you know, you're kind of start from the bottom. Right. So you start in your library board and you start on your city council, and you look at your neighborhood and you start to build, and it's one brick at a time, and it's very methodical and you have to build and building built. So what was the first thing? That happens was Republicans get the house, right? And they and then they now Republicans also reinvented what they were about with. This really exciting compelling vision of the tea party where they had like a whole like on. Towel g about the country in the story that we're in an individual's role in that story. And like, I don't agree with it. But it was exciting. They clearly got people very fired up with this tea party thing. And they had like interesting dynamic candidates that appeal to their story, right? You these guys that were like a funeral home director, hog butcher, you know, regular guys who were like, you know, it was appealing that they weren't politicians. They had no qualifications. And there were part of this big historic move and this vision and the set of beliefs, and what happened they won the house, and then they one more in the house, and they one more on the houseman eventually they won the Senate. And then eventually they won all three branches of government and got supreme court seats, and it all started with that local like how do we get our movement into the library boards? And I think what I see this optimistic right now is I do see a vision congealing in the Democratic Party. I think there's legitimization of of leftism and the Democratic Party that I have not seen in my lifetime. Where people are thinking about issues like Medicare expansion minute. Wage. There's a political program that connects to an ideology that connects to exciting cool candidates like Sean Casten, right? Who's not a politician? He's a energy climate scientists, right? He's he appeals to the story that we have to tell people about the world and this election. Yes, it is not everyone did not put on the you know, they live glasses and see the Trump goals. Whatever Beck's them in the streets and hanging from the street lamps or whatever everyone was hoping for. But nonetheless, we built we put down those bricks, and we had a lot of candidates win for city council library board two hundred run for something candidates. Interesting candidates. You know, young young young women running for office for the first time Muslim candidates trans candidates that connect to the story that we wanna tell about this country. That's building the bench and telling you get we'll give it time and trust the process and get involved, and it will it will yield results. Like, we will. We will be back in power and. I think we have a far more compelling and hopeful vision for the future, then than the Republican movement and the Republican ideology, and I do believe that the day will come when when ours will stick like, I I am an optimist in that way. And more. Do you need them last night? Nebraska, Kansas, Idaho. Maine, Utah all very conservative states voted for Medicaid expansion. I I'll have a hot take Merlin. Sorry. I'm not a I'm because so long. I am an app it's I'm used to having my challenges pushed away, even when they're not. Pants. This is this is my challenge. I. I didn't. Hands out of my pants. Normally after a big blue way, or whatever I I'm almost. I'm worried because people get people get lazy after that. Typically, or at least that's what it feels like we got him. Now, we're done. But last night, it fell even the folks who want like I I was on that our friend hugging didn't win but she's booking. Eighteen years old incredibly smart Tammy Duckworth, like twenty years to win not to like say the candidate or something. I already was texting party. And I was like what's next? Let's make a plan. Exactly they everybody who not every but it felt like especially in do page. Everyone was very excited even if they lost, and I don't usually buy into the idea of well, the old guys are going to die off. And then everything will be fine because guess what Nazis rate is Nazis, but the. Younger liberal and leftist. Folks, who are just smarter they're smarter. And they're listening to different people, and they're not just listening and like holding the party line. They're doing new and creative things that they have like a coherent worldview that doesn't make you wanna die. Exactly even to understand the optics of saying, well, listen, we certainly could get money from PACS super PACS, but we're gonna choose not to do that. Because we don't even want to say the appearance of impropriety, and we don't want that money. We don't want that money, and we don't want to influence. We can get where we need to be by other means by finding people of like minds who have the same values that we do and aren't constantly trying to like, you know, square the circle on like how you're going to be able to looking forward to the next FCC filing. No, they're doing something different. And I think that is wildly encouraging. And I think people who are too crusty about how much we need to keep pushing to the center. I mean, even heard it this morning the law hot Texas morning about like of the ones who made it are the ones who near the centre. Yeah. That's still in this old paradigm. I'm not sure when all these people other people die off, and it's just smart young liberals and really young dealings. Like, I'm going to be glad those people are they're doing what they're doing. They have nothing to lose. Folks. Folks. Do love this to do. Very success. Talk about pants. I wanted one more thing Alex that I. He did this this last week to on three separate occasions last week. You said we really need to get to the challenge. But I know I have one more. I wanna leave with the do by Friday audience, which is first of all do by Friday audience. I want to start a couple of thank you. So we fundraise did these twits streams, which as you know, as tact viciously and unfairly blind by former congressman Peter Roskam for doing these streams with racial candidates the Dubai Friday. Audience was very nice raised a ton of money. For progressive candidates all around the country and number of them one last night. So thank you to everyone on the dischord and all of the Dubai Friday listeners who gave some money in and supported those three and a special shout out to Robbie and Matt for technically making the streams happen and volunteering a huge amount of time and effort, I truly could not have done that without you guys. And I'm very proud of of that. And I think the results speak for themselves, and the final thing I'll say to to people listening to this because I had a lot of people reach out to me. Actually, it was really really nice yesterday. A number of people reach out and said, hey, I heard what you guys talked about on Friday, and I got involved with local St Leger, and I'm happy volunteered. And that's amazing. And the final thing. I wanted to say is like, you know, I had this talked about having this feeling when watching the healthcare vote come in. And I was like I'm just going to go after I got to do something. So Roskam my race. Right. I'm just going to focus on the hill. And I six then there were trust me. There are a lot of mornings I woke up, and I was like this is this is so insubstantial. It's one guy in one district. I've we're in we're in a huge country of three hundred million people, and this is not doing enough like this is not making everyone put on that. They live glasses. This is just it's so I'm just I'm just one one little one little cog in this machine here, and it's not an it should be doing more. And in the last I've actually the other thing I haven't talked about is I've been on hiatus from cards. I took like almost a month off just to to to work on campaigns. The the election I've been out canvassing lot for cast him. And there's been a lot of long days where I was out in the rain or whatever. And I was ca- can't usually go campus loan because I'm pretty quick at it. And I was out handing out flyers to people were not happy that I was. I was at their house and talking to people who had no fucking clue who the democrat and the Republican war. And there were times I felt very hopeless, and like I'm not doing anything, and I should go do some sort of clever online start a hat company or something. What am I doing? This is not this is not doing anything. And it had. I felt like I am just one little ant carrying one little sugar crystal to the Queen right now. Right. Like this is not enough. It's not doing anything. But. The way I feel now in retrospect is if that's the problem is if no ants carry a sugar crystals to the clean, then you don't build the Intel. That's the problem. Good job being an aunt chance. Thank you who. We'd who's the Queen ant? Sean casten. Merlin. I really want hear about your pants. I've lost interest at this point. I. We gas is a challenge you get pants, but Alan. What was the channel this week was to get a new pair of pants. Yeah. And implicit listen. That was mix it up a little bit. Okay. So there was a max Pam preview in the after show last week and Merlin in the super-secret techs channel, you sent a photograph or screen shot of pants that you were going to receive an I'm very curious. It was awesome and heartbreaking. Well, who do you want me to start? Oh, please. Please. I ordered three pairs of pants the pants trifecta. And and so one of the more I really wanna just try some some new things for different things. I got a pair of chain ta chain to a tactical pants China. I gotta chain chainsaw men's cotton military cargo pants pocket casual work, combat trousers number three three five seven thirty six. I'm going to set aside, my huge fucking beef with the sizing of pants because it's very troubling to me that nobody ever has my size and. Share your side. Yeah. Keeping your pants islands. He won the election. I'm pretty day-to-day to thirty four and six pretty solid like in is the thirty five thirty two. And which now I think there can I share my thoughts on this. I think that they're making Levi's for. I think they're changing the numbers for a let's say heavier population as the population trends, heavier you think it's kinda pants inflation. I think that there were seeing some pants inflation because I can tell you. I definitely thirty four. But I by like thirty two big now, I'm definitely a thirty two and I have not lost two inches of. Shrinkage of the pants. I've always bought my leave big 'cause I'm mostly I mean, really ever since for college. I have been over ninety percent when I wear jeans they're five once. And so you always buy the totally like on anything, you know, dark unwashed there, like they're basically a piece of plywood or balsa wood when they arrive, and you have a method, but it's only try different things this time. I just want to have someone to set aside because I have beef with big pants big Pam, March trouser industry. But no, I got all thirty six thirty two on everything. And they're all too big because thirty four or thirty four would be too small. But that's okay, they shrink, and I can I can work with that. It's like why buy duck? Martin's a little big once again with with the shoes almost exactly nine and a half just the tiniest bit over nine and a half which puts me like right in the worst size for English shoes. Because English shoes are a little holocaust of sizing. But you can do that or socks e kaput in insoles. There are ways to deal with doc. Martin's which I do. So I got the technical pants, and oh boy they didn't. It was not good. I've gotten tactical pants in the past. But these are like clown pants like balloon pants. I didn't like those. Let's move past those here's the heartbreak guys. I have been looking forward to this car. Hearts car heart men's duck bib overall unlined ours zero one car heart Brown thirty six now.

Scott Scott Walker when he was the governor of Wisconsin just one more sign he signed a law.

Sweet paying Ken. They just gave me what's your Email service? Notable. Here's cave. Cater them that. It's falling apart. Do you like the is it practical to have the traveling with it was so goodness. Do you use your phone like a speakerphone? Now, do you do you talk into like, it's a piece of pizza? I very very very rarely call somebody where I'm not in a small enclosure out. She should do some sort of a bit of someone who talks into their wallet. That would be really funny. Okay. G news. So check this out. I got an Email from unfortunately, I got this Email on Monday. And there was no time to do anything about it before the challenge. Due to electoral reasons, but it says hi max, your podcast talking about genes would love to have you out to my factory and show you how we make them in Chicago best rob who that's the coolest shit in the world. I want to do that. And I think we should I think we should go and take some sort of camera and do like a how it's made do by Friday, unless it turns out sweatshop in which case. And we never visited there. Video's going. Had that with me and mine, didn't you? You can come in over like three g signals never marks. Hello presence robot. You could use Merlin be funny for our listeners. All right. Let's see what else. Oh, and finally jeans topic was people a lot of comments. I don't wanna comments last week of people asking me if I got my jeans tailored and yes them hand. I think most people can probably get their blue unless you're like exactly the right height for store jeans. They can do that with dungarees you comfortable with that. We have a real good Taylor in our neighborhood. And my Milady suggests that I go there and let him fix my rise. Well, oh, why don't do any of that? I just get going on the on the coughs. Yeah. That's what you lose your reflective part or the whole inside. Reflective or is just the ball. It goes on the commuter jeans. Which I no longer have. It goes all the way up the lead. You got rid of all of them. No. I mean, I have the black jeans. Don't aren't don't have that. So anyway, I do I recommend listen, I just take it to my dry cleaner. And they do and they're not like Taylor. They'll they'll hand my blue jeans, and it's cheap. I really recommend. You do this. If you're if you're in a regular size, which most people are everybody anything from American apparel. And it's. But if you buy anything making milk noises, what's up there because I know I'm sorry. What you're gonna say. Please the legs are a dare. They the legs on everything from Merican apparel are at Deir and a joke an insult because if you get anything that almost kind of fits you in the waist with their ridiculously long rise. You will still have an extra four and a half feet of him at the bottom, you'll be walking around like flipper pants. That's that's where our workshops is that right? Yeah. Fog machine or would he be funny running against Trump because he's so tall and cool and athletic, and he would just make Trump look like such a melting melting like pile of Nash potato looks like Trump booklet this phones like a homecraft project. He looks like he's he it looks like if you cut him open. It would just be ground beef consistent consist like raw or looks looks to me like a like a craft project at a vacation bible school. But you don't know what holiday it's four. And you're like oh that third. Good janine. Nice job wasn't like that. When we feel every every night, I sort of feed her wet food shirts. He pop the pop the top clock. The can. And then you sort of jiggle it you sort of ease the food out. And then it sort of Indiana has that wet squelching sound, and then it sort of plops down like that onto the plate with its juices. And I really think that if you if you looked inside Trump, he's just wet food from head to sternum. But it's also the skin has the consistency of ladies fancy purse. There's there's something about that. And they've been moisture and the poor poor Zaveri large. It you could you could you could say he's one of these never water guys, you think so all. Oh my God.

(Episode 119) "Saturday Night Live" Actor: Siobhan Fallon Hogan
Welcome to episode one nineteen today's guest is Chevonne Fallon HOGAN. She has been in Forrest Gump Saturday night. Live Seinfeld men in black holes. She is immensely talented. And I might be under stating that she is so cool. She is so funny. I absolutely think the world of her before the interview, I can tell you know, after the interview she was even better than I thought she'd be and I thought she was going to be phenomenal. So what a blessing having her on the show was I have to say it's been a bitter sweet week for sure I recorded this interview almost two weeks ago. And I usually don't sit on interviews. I mean, I have a couple in storage. I'm going to plan on releasing I've held onto them for a couple of reasons there's like three or four I have like that. But this wasn't supposed to be one of those. This was supposed to come out right away. A few days after I recorded this interview, my father passed and usually don't bring up my personal life on the podcast. I do I shouldn't say that. I do bring my podcast. And I I don't know how deep personally I go or a hall deep. I don't go. But I have to say, you know, it it's bittersweet at I mentioned bittersweet, obviously, the sweet part was was Chevron in how awesome. She is. In was in the better part is, you know, the loss of of of my father in full disclosure and philosophy what I pride myself on. It's it's it's definitely been a tough road. I love this podcast in. And I've said this on numerous occasions, my podcast has been. I think a lot of people appreciate my guests. I think a lot of people appreciate my honesty, and it's certainly been a form of therapy to me to kind of just air things out. But yeah, I mean, it's been it's been a tough few weeks. I certainly don't want people. I, you know, I refuse received a few emails asking if the podcast was daughter, if I'm one hundred hiatus that's not the case at all. It just I've been attending to a lot of things I've been with family. I've been doing my thing and. It's been a very tough couple of weeks. You know, there's always a notion when somebody close passes to you like like why knee a wide? Did it happen to me? You know? I mean who else is it supposed to happen to like who else's death supposed to happen to his and always supposed to be somebody else is is is the aero never supposed to fall on you. I mean, I don't know death. I I will never. Understand it. I will never understand how it works. I mean, I'm not the most religious person in the world. I wish I was is religious as I was when I was younger. But I I clearly not. But that doesn't mean I don't believe either. I'm somewhere in the middle. I'm. And I know there's words that describe people and NAS, ticker, or whatever I I don't know where I am in that scale. But we're not even going to the religious point. Or, you know, the the why me my dad was such a beautiful guy. He's just he was one of the best people I've ever known. He was my movie, buddy. He was the guy. I watched television with he's the guy that I talked to I spent time with we went on trips together. He was he he's absolutely my best friend in. He certainly mysteriously. You know? Couple of days ago. I was writing his obituary, and if you told me, you know, two weeks ago, you ready to my dad's obituary this week. I would have said you're full of shit. But. You know, there's a saying if you wanna make God laugh Thome, you have plans, Tom your plants, and and certainly not missed a little bit over the top. But now, I I I've I have some great guests schedule, and I have some wonderful people in my personal life that I that. I absolutely adore. And there have been so kind to me and every step of the way been supportive in, you know, without mentioning names. I'm just so thankful for those people. Whether it's the people I work for or the, you know, friends that I have. But I always have to say to you know, if you weren't a kind person to my dad and you want to offer condolences, truthfully. Shove them up your ass. You know, whether it's his relatives or people we knew, and I know a lot of people are about forgiveness in times. Like, this not me, I want you to be the person you were when my father was alive. If you were an asshole to my dad. And you want off up condolences take those condolences wrap them very nicely into steal from rock. The rock shove them up your ass. I want nothing to do with phony people ever. I mean, there's just too many, fakes and phonies in the world, as it is never mind. The podcasting world that's filled with owns, but believe me when I tell you. I am going to address those phonies by name in upcoming episodes Bank on it bet on it. I one hundred percent will you know? But I have to say the one thing that has that that's got me through this outside of the great support and having a wonderful family that I do and just thinking about things like, you know, you think about the great people in our world, right? The great people that have passed Martin Luther King and JFK, and and and Abraham li- just just people that are, you know, Harriet Tubman, I'm just just people over the course of history that accomplished so much like death just doesn't discriminate. It's just. You know? And when people talk about living your best life in. At yolo. You know, I mean, they're crazy in there. They're kind of foolish terms. But at the heart of them is kinda true. Right. You get one time around. And I know it's probably not popular or or kosher to bring up a a Kevin Spacey movie. But they're such an awesome line at the end of capex. Right. Jeff bridges in it. Wonderful movie when he talks about. Repairing the report Jeff bridges has with his son who's played by the he was he was in breaking bad. Aaron Paul and prot who is played by Kevin Spacey turns to. Jeff bridges character talking about his son. He goes my advice to you is to get it. Right. This time because this time is all we have. And I know it's so basic in so like obvious, but I have to say, it's it's so truthful at its core so powerful at its core. Like, if you aren't appreciating the people in your life now, then you deserve every bit of grief. You get when they pass like if you aren't hogging your mom or your dad or your daughter or your son or whoever or a friend, or whomever, it just just embracing the people that are good to you in life, and that are kind and beautiful than you deserve all the grief in heartache the death brings like you deserve it. You should appreciate the now and bleeding. That's one of the biggest lessons I've taken out of this. You know, it was so corny when when when I was younger or when. People tell you. You know, appreciate what you have. And you know, hug somebody tells somebody I'd love you. It is so goddamn true. It is. So freaking true like to appreciate those. That are good to you in kind to you. And I'm not saying to appreciate all people because all people aren't good beatable. Put up saying the people that you love in your life. Don't let a second go by without telling them what they are. And what they mean to you. And I always made it a point to tell my dad, you know, how much I love to it was so corny because sometimes it would come out of nowhere. You know? We'd be watching a movie Django unchained Quentin Tarantino's movie, and he'd be like. Wow, Christoph waltz is really good at this, dad. You know, I love you. Right. Like they'd come on nowhere. I I would say out of nowhere. So and that way, it doesn't east thing. But I think my dad passed knowing how much he was loved not just by me. But by my family, and I'm so sorry to ruin this. Awesome interview with my sobbing in the beginning of it. But really is a fantastic interview. So I apologize. Are. That regard Giovanni. I'm sorry. If I ruined this interview you are phenomenal in it. And it actually cheered me up listening to your part of it. This part not so much. But that's all I've got I'll be back stronger than ever life is full of ups and downs. So. Without any more of my feeling sorry for myself. I bring to you the great Chevron Fallon HOGAN forest. Don't. I want to tell you. I love you. I love you too. Daddy. I'll be right here. When you get back. You want to stay in this bus to school? Now.

My next guest is work on the small street in the big screen is truly amongst my favorite her work on SNL is epic. I absolutely love everything about her filmography who she is. She's she's really one of the best actors on the planet. Hernandez Chevonne Fallon Hogan's von how are you today? I great. How are you? Good. So like, I'm going through your life. And I feel like I know your life is good as you at this point. And you know, I was really refreshing. And I didn't know this about you like not that she made a point of it. But like your faith really kind of drives who you are is that a fair point. You're my kind of reaching with that. I guess that would be the case. Sometimes you feel really highest saying that, but also, you know, including my Irish Catholic guilt driving me to four hundred the other a month. Faith-based? Like, I I don't know if actors have hidden their religion because I feel like there's been a new I don't know what what word you would use a new Bronx or rebirth of fake based movies. So it's like, I don't know if it's like people clearly love these types of movies like is it because people are like religion issue such a complicated matter, and I don't get it. I don't really get it either. But I do love like what was the one? That was just heaven heaven is for real those or so good, right? I haven't been any of the af been in any of the faith based, but I would love to be in them. But yeah, I mean, it's you know, it's kind of topic that was kind of Nord for a little while. I don't know why the Philps and now it comes down to money when I think those did well that they start doing more of them. You know, I grew up Catholic confirmation. I did all that. And I always always have a mixed bag when it comes to religion because there are truly most people practice religion, regardless of what it is just great people. But like my neighbor is like one of those Catholic people that like lives life awfully Monday through Saturday. They are just not good people like cheerful sound problem others, but what life for that one hour on Sunday Chevanton, the turn into the nicest people on the planet. The extra spot every religion joint, gloom bet everything. Yes. Yes. It's definitely not just the cats every religion absolute sense. So I have to say, you know, do you teach a lot of acting? I know you've done a lot of speaking. I know you're very. You know, you do a lot of that. Do you find so teach acting as well Kim? I would I'm networking. I will teach. I taught oh I guess about why used to a seminar through at the feeder companies NYU on how to write your own one person show. I've done it a couple of couple different colleges. And then I did done a kid's class in my town. I'll do it every just just have time. I'll be like, okay. I think five week period, I'm gonna do it. And then every summer I try to do a little camp because I love kids. So I do like a camp. It's like four days three hours a day. Which is hilarious. You know, it's kind of like everything that I would have loved to have done when I was a little kid like, I do like puppets. I do make up, of course, snacktime my favorite where like have. You don't have the kids come dine at warning ten. They of Trump property and doodo popsicles at all gross stuff. They're letting medic themselves their parents like new they're like wired. Gonna say if I go back, right? So like, I want to get your perspective. I guess earlier in the year who was just a he's very much like you kind person Austin Pendleton, right? Like a gun. Pood- personally. That's who I think you. I don't know. I guess you could teach anything, right? And it's all dependent on the teacher. And how they like kind of just I don't know how here's a thing. Like ADL I say I actually had a to tonight. It's like, you know, less people get their kids into being child actress, you're like oh, God don't do that. But this kiss really talented this mother's like this is not dishing for the sketch comedy comedy show. Would you mind coach him? So anyway, long the shortest. He said to me will you go to this person? No tapes me in there. So being I said know, that's the problem. Like, a lotta ties with kids a lot of time teaching them is the people that really wanna be actors that are kinda like bitter. So that's one thing. I always say to kids. I'm like, listen when everyone tells you good between the sage sage it's impossible, meaning needle, you don't know your flowering. So just gotta look for the good kids. But it's rough when you're. Onto a bad teacher because a lot of acting teachers unfortunately wanted act and they're not doing it. So that's why they're teaching Wilson anytime weeks out of the year. Email. I'm like, okay. Listen to be teaching a course like, oh, she's unemployed again. That we can suffer. I remember. I never makings interview about me. But to add to your point like, I remember when I was younger, and I really wanted to play the piano and has teacher, Bruce who was just awful to me like he yelled to make his points. But it all now, the what you just said like he was probably not in a place in his life. Any wanted to be like, I'm sure he didn't wanna be teaching a nine year old the piano. So he tried it out. And I totally get that point like that. It's just when you can really good perspective on it. Like if you do wanna write later, it's so funny like light daughter. I have three kids. My youngest daughter took piano at Bemba. She told me that the teacher put his hidden. No. She was looking his Heddon is hands. Just shook it like off. Seriously could be worse than TV because there are a lot of really untalented piano players just hearing that banging over and over again, like I know I took piano when I was little and I have to say, I was pretty good. My sister, Sheila, she I'd I always make her go. I would fall asleep on the couch. My teacher's name was Mrs Doyle. And then she literally would play the same song every week for weeks and never have printed in between. I thought MRs soil must be like could this girl? Just maybe I don't know. I'm just thinking maybe she his once. I believe that your your house seems such a fun place to be with your kids and your all God family atmosphere. Now, we're now we're we're stage because get this my oldest daughter. She just turned twenty four. She's got a job with the New York Post political writer, she's moved out of the house. My son is a junior West Virginia, and my oldest daughter's a senior in high school so tomorrow, I'm such a bad mother to most people know what where their kids are going at this point for college tomorrow morning at four in the morning. We're flying university of South Carolina and the drive in North Carolina. But anyway, I it's like it's like like looking around I south, you know, think we're on the radio because it's my house so messy right now, it's like a sane. Hugh kids. I have is down the lumber I'll ask you do your kids. Are they is it? I'll always wonder how kids reacting Ma obviously your husband's very successful in in a different line of work. But, you know, are you what are your kids reactions to link your filmography, the fact that mom's ear, I think it's I remember my oldest daughter when I was little at something came on TV at she screamed, they're living in New York City at the time in an apartment, she screamed, what are you doing TV, and she ran in the other room at another time just think just because you ask yourself the top of my head. I have a house upstate New York and go to Cooperstown wants a summer because my husband loves baseball. And someone said, oh, you know, are you Chaban fail immune black, blah, blah at my daughter without the political reporter now, it's very serious and says she's all over town. They get used to like, you know, like, my son was a junior he got to come to the fortieth SNL party. So it's like it's like a lot of stuff that becomes any. Of course, that was insanely exciting. But they got to do a lot of really cool stuff. But they also don't like idolized celebrities because of it because they had a lot of movie sets. They get it. You know what I mean? I think they got it. One of the things many things I really like about you as you have a great sense of humor. And I don't care what line of work you're in. I just feel like that is one of the things where people almost want you to know how funny they are versus just be yourself. Like this who you are. I work with people that like legitimately say, I'm a funny person. Like, I dunno like drives me nuts. I feel horrible. And that's one thing. When you see like, I tell always tell kids to like, there's nothing worse from seeing someone on stage that thinks that they're funny like I don't wanna last because you think you're funny. But what was I going to say about that? I forgot. It's forced. It's like, I don't know. It's just it's it's not natural. It's not. Yeah. Yeah. So I'm looking at your your college with the morning with the Catholic you to get your MFA, d do you feel like that? I mean, looking back on your your enormous accomplishments. Do you feel that was necessary gets really helped you along the way? Or was it like was it a mentor or was it a mixture of graduates getting MFA like like, I was from small little town. And it'll latches I can't go into acting other forget this person's today. You'll can't go into that people been studying acting since they were five years old lived near New York City. I think a lot of it. What it does build confidence at that get experience on stage. So you could do college theater like, oh, jeez. While I was good for college. But good enough graduate school to graduate. Oh, I guess I can compete, and then you go to New York. And you know, you stand your big loser. And then you're like, oh it did a little play. Just it's basically about building confidence for a while union run. I guess I can do this. You know what I mean? It was for me, and you and you get training like. Actually after graduate school. I studied the Meisner technique, you know, in New York, and I was told study the Meisner tactic. You could save a whole lot of money. Is there a mentor? That's for you to or is it just kinda like experience. Let me think. Well, it'll there was a priest at Catholic union father heart keep who's fabulous guy. And he looked like Marlon Brando Naan white hair was his family actually owned Walgreens like pharmacies and one on their forget one my first year, New York. I was like oh my gosh. This this is so bad. I mean, I've got about two cents hours receptionist because I wasn't a good of waitress I to be receptionist, and I was I was like this is going nowhere. I'm a big loser. And I remember he called me that Christmas. I was like a two four with another girl are part was so small that my clothes on over my bed and my feet touched her feet, and then somebody broke through the window. And I was like oh my God. I'm going to get killed. I gotta get outta here. But anyway, he called being said Hughes, call Irish she's like oh, full other Gilbert said her father Ariz freeze Christmas or give you the gift of courage at it was like really like something. I was like oh my gosh. Okay. I gotta stick this out. Another time someone said who came to Catholic you when I was in graduate school, and he was like thirty eight years old which at the time. I thought was ancient when I was I was like probably twenty three or something. And I was like he said just remember when you're in the arts never compare yourself to other people your age because people business can, you know, especially the time it's five I was this was like the eighty so the people were like oh ago college from making like sixty year was like, oh my gosh. I got two hundred fifty dollar bonus answering the phones anyway, so he was don't ever life that of me don't compare yourself. And I always remembered that you know. That you can't do that. You're in the arts. It's not it's it's it's different like slow and steady wins the race, you know, room remove much unless you related someone who business unsuited one of the things when you when you speak to like college level kids or where people that are. You'll wanna be actors is there a question you get a lot. There's really no answer to. Let's see. I can't think of one off the top of my head. But you do get a lot of things of change. You'll get a lot of kids now that really just wanna be famous. You know, they're not really that interested in art for, you know, so that's a huge change that I've noticed when I do these like college, you know, one woman show, some our zooms Goma point without those my phone with quiz you because it seems like if that's their intention to famous that is dental is very lonely road. I think sell because are you really, you know, I like I kill to play. But your sons you can't afford to play. So yet, it's kind of be really loved if you're not right, right? No. That that is. So well said you're break in home. I'm right here. Otherwise, pretty merest. Is it the golden girls? Would you say that was this isn't that funny matter fact, I did the golden girls I was so thrilled any it's like a week long. Your guests are. The end of the week. I wrote them each think, you know, as if I was like part of the cast like it was like show and remember they're like this. The producer is still ridiculous. I was so pathetic he came. And he was like owns. I was looking at me, and he was his arms wide open past not girl behind me. And I was like oh my gosh. I was going to be. So funny ever blowing is that what mind-blowing obviously, you're somebody. Who is you know, you're talented at that point. You have you know, what you're doing? But that's a he at the time. That's a huge break. Right. I mean, that's pretty big. Yes. Let me tell you something as they say, it's all, you know, a lot of street that was a guy that I became friends with L A. He was a writer. He's like, look I can't catch you on the show, but I can get you an audition, and as so they're still really front of David Goodman. And he's now the president of the writers guild an admitted he spoke at something. I saw video of it. I was like David we really became somebody. We didn't. And that is like they must you must have been. So that's really a sweet gesture for somebody. That's like, I guess you would say green or but to do that. That's a very. Careful that you wish for because I remember, you know, a lot of times you're on television show, especially comedy the old sitcoms. The so many more those days, but. The the the actors become such big stars that the director really can't direct them anymore. And a lot of times directors are just coming into one or two. So they can't because the actors have become so big that they're like don't. You dare criticize bait. So the guest star is completely the be getting so many notes your head is spinning. And of course, I was never like small. Milic go bigger, go home, and my my friend David was like, oh my God. Because like now on, you know, tone it down a little I've always gotten that. You know, you can always we can always glad you're where you are. But we can always bring it back a little. I always get like I compliment when I really need to because I always feel like I'm patronizing my guest. But like I have to say the nine hundred ninety one thousand to cast of Saturday live, especially you, in my opinion is the best cast ever in the show's history, and I can back that up, but that wouldn't be able to tell you. I can't stay up late. So I have been. Jeers Kaskel spectacular. And I could bump into on the street. I have no idea you are. But don't we were. It was first of all personality wise. I mean, Chris Farley was a great friend of mine. I loved cravings person hilarious Greek guy talk about a faithful guy unbelievable person. You know? Chris rock was great, Adam sailor. We read a really great group. And so that Julia Sweeney was great. And I I mean, I just you know, we really really had in Victoria Jackson. I love my group in Alan Gleghorn. But yeah. Mojo fuel. Hartman was part of that group. Still Armenia crazy Carvey McMartin McMichael. That's data was side loved data him. So insanely talented. I mean, still just unbelievable unbelievably talented is working for more and Michaels is that high pressure. I feel like he's a guy. You don't wanna miss up too many times in front of I could be the whole thing is so high pressure that sometimes I think I have like the first couple years after off that show I used to walk slowly last thirty rock like a block away because it's let's face it, you it's just. It's pressure. I mean because you got you're you're supposed to be funny. You gotta get stuff on. Then you go on Saturday you dress rehearsal. They cut half the show half an hour for the show. Like oh. So it's big pressure. You know? I was never stand up comic. So it's not like you stand up. I think really understand in conceal that kind of pressure whereas current actor you have like if you're play of weeks to prepare fear, even if you're to television show you have time to prepare. This is just like, here's your script. Good luck. Today's okay got caught. Now, we got changing lines got ten minutes. Learn the new lines before you're on air. It's pretty rough. You should want to never thought of that. Like, you didn't do stand up a lot of your cast mates here. I wanna see also seventy five to eighty percent were stand up comedians completely. Oh my gosh. In you, don't apart of being a stand up. It is when the guest star comes in you pitch every pitch their ideas for for what sketch. They wanna get on there. Like really good at pitching stories where that's right. Chris Farley was so funny because he was not a stand up at him. He'd say, you know, like people would come to like a cast firm, and they say, well, you know, I just read a I don't know Warren piece. There's this one thing in the kitchen chrisny, go. Why not much of a reader per se? I thought it'd be kind of funny if we did a sketch a scale. Women guests those be pretty someone could be rough yet. What do you do on his left auto? Anyway, it was it was insane. I never obviously, I never knew Chris Farley. I never knew Robin Williams. But I feel like when they both passed like I feel like I lot cheesiest way possible. Like, I feel like I lost somebody that I did know what I'm saying like no ch huge met because what so rough especially like, Robin Williams. So I didn't even know. But you're like, oh my gosh. So sad thinks some of that bunny was so sad. You know rooms to see someone suffered. I don't know. Yes. I totally get what you're saying immune women of that. You know, I mean, Jimmy who shears your name note, you guys aren't related in you probably get that a lot. But you know, he's you know, to me thing is he can't he can't hold it in through a scene and blowing heard you're like, Lauren like Makita that was funny. Like, he's not like, you know, he didn't. He wasn't okay with that for a while. So I don't know I a lot of high pressure. Really? I don't really know. I wasn't Jimmy was on. I loved Jimmy. He's hysterical. I did will I feed her pitch. It was the lead in the driver picked me up at the airport. And he said that was really nice your brother to get you a part in a movie. Yeah. You know, I was on a set before him, and he was nice of anyway. Right over here. Thanks. You know? I don't know. It just seems like the group you're with is just amazing. And I mean, and I know just kind of bouncing back and forth year. You do get a lot. I read where you get a lot of your sense of humor from your dad is that watch in sanely funny, and I need like just of course, everybody wanted to be around. He was so funny like at any party any he was great at giving speeches? He was completely Reverend of if everyone timing the Catholic charities award that he was like a got they award from you guys. We've never I never got awarded my life. I was one of Levin. You must wanna check. It was just mom to everything. Nothing. Nothing was sacred with my father it really funny. They used to save the college. He went to LeMoyne college up in Syracuse, actually, two small little with. There was a cartoon of Bill failed needs to take it on the road. At my I was so my son was a junior at West Virginia. Peter he's hilarious too. And he so it's like my father reincarnated middling assistant funny that you can't teach. I mean, do you do miss bouncing over here? You know, I wanna say your parents wanted you to be teacher. I think you made a great teacher spark. That has nothing to do. But you you get really tired tired, teachers such stamina. Like, I was like oh my gosh. If your teacher, you have to be like it's like having a birthday party every single day after one. Party sleep for like a week really really cuts. Titian? Do you consider your time in huge party or your life, especially your career? Well, I'll tell you what. After I got off SNL literally for years you'd walk into an audition. There people von Alan now spot are you on are you free right now. There's like I have been on that show in five years. But people don't know. So that's fine. I'll just write it. But it was definitely I'm so grateful as far as it was it opened so many doors, you know, especially with film, you know, because they just here. They're like, okay. Yeah. Dish if you're on FM. Obviously, you're the pros. Do they all know? But Seinfeld as teen that had to be a great experience to watching just to refresh my memory. I I know all these skits. But I watched one where Jerry Seinfeld SNL was teaching class and. It's one of the best skits. And it's I know it's insane. And I look back at that. I you know, because they said, oh, maybe a year or two ago like accomplishing tape of of the senior in and I saw that was like my God. Jerry was baby. We were all babies we will kits at the time. I think I was like twenty nine I was like, oh my insurance thirty if people find out terrible. So you do Seinfeld. I mean, make your whole filmography is just one amazing piece of work after another like, I mean, that'd be a great experience. Or I mean, and you're so great as team like give me a break. Like, basically, I was just doing like because I'm from upstate here at Syracuse there so many characters up there because half my town half oral like farm community at half of them were sophisticated went to work in the city, which my French was so funny like between New York, no serif. But anyway, so there were so many characters and that that character was just completely some of that I knew from high school like was completed nation at actually actually I'm talking about that written a movie, and we're gonna it's going to be shot in outside of Syracuse in my town Cazenove on in the fall. Best been written casted, and it's finished. And I haven't it's gonna independent, and you know, Syracuse has a huge new film, how they're like a fifteen million dollar film, and they of tax breaks and actually did movie up there this past summer. Call resent. And you know, I've gotten a lot of the film people up there. So you were issued up there in the fall in these that that great this awesome in in. So does that happen a lot when we as an actor? Did you do you find a lot that you you work off of personal experience? Like were Tina was somebody who knew does that happen on? Definitely he. You know, my my character in men in black. Honestly was this. This commercial in Syracuse. And there was this girl that used to this his commercial it was complete imitation. But because they'll be like, oh, you know, that was really interesting like I did a one woman show once this people like all these different care saying like, oh, I really got the team was like there's nothing. I am. I did characters. I thought were funny. A lot more based on people that I know. I mean, he people's from because I feel like it's like I like like really I didn't know that was I have to cover a few of these because they're so amazing. Like, I had the Dan Lauria who is the dad and the wonder years on a couple of episodes ago, but you were my knee a lot of him in. This regard your role as Dorothy Harris in Forrest Gump like you didn't have to say much the way you guys express yourself as actors like I just it's something. I don't think you can teach. I don't know what they call it. I don't know what the the acting term for it is. But without even talking your act, you're acting as so affective in in those appreciate that. That's a story to force got because very first will ever was greedy. And Phil Hartmann was my husband actually, Michael J, FOX to lead at curt of Douglas Kirk Douglas, elite what the powder vein, and he actually from Amsterdam New York. Racially went to St. Lawrence, which was all he and I really hit it off. Anyway. So when I went in for Forrest Gump, I was actually supposed to be think. Let me think about this. Yeah. I was supposed to tiny other part. And I was like to Bob back by become very friends with Mary Ellen's became my best friend. She passed away a couple of years ago. She was greatest girls went by Mary Ellen Trainor for acting. She was a lot of movies anyway, she became Greek refrence. She's like, my husband is gonna be drinking his movie forced Gump. And. You're when there's a small part cycle wins. And as we wait, I read it, and I'm like part of a bus driver. I took the bus every day of my life with this woman. Betsy Ben fell who was great. She was toll character. Like, I said, listen, I don't want in for that part. I wanna west driver. You do. Like. Yeah. Anyway. So that that's what happened. You know, the whole movie right is based on judgment. How people before as people, you know, he's worried about judgment. But here's this like breath of fresh air bus driver that like it's it's it's a smaller role. But it's a it's a it's a huge moment both times in the movie. And that's I don't know. To me those rules are like what make movie right to the foundation. I love to remember in college. I there is listening. The real inspector held was named the play and I went to a little top like Jesuit college. So I was getting a lot of the leads and the time I wasn't as weird looking as I am now. Never had any people kept. I kept getting roles of the on, Gino. And so this is this plague of real inspector hound. I think it was like you had my sophomore year anyways. So they're like, okay. We want you to be the vision for the the pretty girl even though it wasn't that. I was pretty enough to be pretty rare. But they're just there was pool. But anyway, I was normal enough looking I coulda gone for that. Anyway. So I don't know. I don't wanna be that hard. I wanna be the weird made. I want to be the weird made. And I wanted for that MRs Thrush. So that's that's what happened. So I did. And it was like I love doing. I'd rather do a small character parts and a straight roll any day. The funny thing is I mean, did you like in my last question about force come to find that when that comes to fruition home the home of he's made? I mean, it's such a big part of the because audiences waiting for that child to like, just, you know, it's just it's such a key moment. I mean, do you see at the same way? I see it or do. I see it more like a fancies it. Here's the thing because of an Irish Catholic, I don't really like to give myself at which credit, but pre she ate thinking that. It is true to you know. And you know, I don't know. I I know you you've had roles were I read this somewhere. It was they wanted to do something so ridiculous. And you're like, nah, I'm okay. And then you let your convictions lead. You know, I know it's killed by Bank account that just recently happened to me again. I was like all hilt. It's really bomber when you've got scripted. And you're like, oh, God, this is gonna this is really gonna set me. This is really the set me up earlier too. And then you read it in your vote paid for you like, I cannot do this can't do it can't stand. It, you know, Schumann directors or writers didn't do they work with you, not just you, but actors in general defined it happens a lot or is it kind of like, no, this is my way this works. This is it director if they're like it yet totally as such so many really great guys. Women that have worked through like really listen to you. But that's why I do feel sorry for people starting off now because you know, it's it's a reference because kinda more anything goes funny deems since movie those pretty intense guy outs issue. I've never seen it. But I have to say, you know, you must be repaired grizzly hoses phenomenal movie. I mean, people love them. I mean, that's. I mean, even I love Eddie Davis. The director that movies truly like the classiest greatest guy ever Grun kids. Love you mentioned his name is director that you know, that that is works with actors will say, you know, while he's such an actress director, he's just the greatest guy clan peer class, but even movies that people do not brought up a lot of your interviews. Like boiler-room like urine Sumi like great great movies. And I don't like I feel like the Goshi ater. It's all works. Like, you're not like these like, no neighbor notions. Which is nothing wrong with them, you know, trying to right, right, right? But it's like, you're filmography is just an I told it's amazing. I mean, it's just the way things worked out. It's just it's a complement to your abilities. I've really appreciate that. Just like any other actor though, there's times when you're like omega. You know, the clock goes differently for an actor that does for someone looking in like, I'll say to my sisters. I three sisters like oh my God. I need a job working for them. And they're like talking about really August this next December. It's december. Is the kids get older it when I was so busy with the kids. You'd be like, oh my gosh. Like, I have a job like his job at our end because he's kids aren't getting to Hawaii or even my house like an insane asylum. But now as you get older the kids are youngest senior. I'm like hi needed. Joe? Brownfield year foundations as an actor are there. I feel like people are naturally funny. Like, you can absolutely do drama. But I really feel like it is not to a street. I feel like somebody's very dramatic. That isn't so funny. I find that you can tell it's and we kind of touched on earlier, but I feel like you can tell in my off of that. Well, yeah. I don't know. I know like with me, I was pegged for comedy for sure for years, and then LARs von Trier who does all dancer dark in the Danish directory in Justice, the house ah check build I've done three moves heated. No that was paying for comedy. And one of my kids was up all night long with the with a terrible croup cough that may families like played with whatever they got sick. They didn't really bad coughs. So as literally all night long and audition for dance in the dark next day and people like oh my gosh. You've addition for LARs lunch, Aries, one of the most bags directors in the world was like I knew is even at because I didn't have time to even look up because it's kept having children anyway so down and I was so dissolved. And it was like I had to cry as like, I'm just gonna cry in his nothing to do with his role because I'm just so tired, and I am so tired. I've just gonna cry now because. Haven't any sleep? So anyway, that again getting the part which broke that it was very serious part that the whole thing of being pegged as clinic just comedic that was really lucky. Consider that how difficult that must be you know, to be an actor to have a family to kind of you know, you're torn three four five different ways. I mean, that's that's very difficult. I would my my kids every brought them to us strategy Charlotte's web. I kept him. Sweet. I've taken them. I would take them any likely gauche eight, okay, we all have to business class people. I'd have like a newborn baby three zero five zero people be looking at me like dot kidding me. At that. You know, we the cast all going out at night. And I'd like, yeah. I got the hall. He was, you know, slinging bottles. But yeah, I I made sure they made kids part of it. And believe me I reminded about every day. Of you because of your convictions. A lot of your filmography is kid friendly, and you know, movies like daddy daycare holes a little bit. I mean, your kids remember being on the set of some of these movies a few. They're young. I know that but. Might when film Charlotte's web. It was in Australia. My son is in kindergarten door was third grade. They they were extras and they were like. Hoodlums ever Gary Winnick who's now gone was great guy. And he was like full you've got to control your kids. Because all they wanted was the cat in cotton candy. They didn't realize it was a prop. They're like why can't we us? But you know, and then my son when I was a baby, mama. He played by some cut him though draft who's these like? Manetti me. Yes. I just play just going in style. The, you know, Michael came Morgan Freeman Allen Arkan, we're in in my son came and he will be he worked for day. And of course, I made my dancing partner as like y'all have that. Boy right there. You I'm so embarrassed. I even let baby Ma another great movie. Like, I just I try not to read people's feel because I feel like it's like, thanks. I know what I've been in. But like, it's so like your filmography, you just you're bringing ones I I'm just I totally forgot. But like, yeah. I mean, these and I forget actors, especially when you're saying now, many of these movies are kind of place markers for things that have been going on your own personal lives rice. Never. I've never did something that probably gives a lot of people. They go see movies, and you know, and you're still working actor, which is unbelievable. You're you're shooting your movies. I mean my gosh. That's I mean at what point does it like, and you still love it more than ever. It seems like I I remember when you learned the calls in Dogville is going up this ramp, and she was eighty she's like shod into sort of the end of the shoot like Gavin jobs lined up as I don't yet. Usually like, no that you believe is eight years old still look for a job. I get it. The way it is never ends in your sense of humor would would jive one hundred percent with any Poehler Tina Fey. I mean, I see why you know. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. They're Sterkel do find. I mean, do you find your obviously accomplish? We've we've got that down. But like do you find your always learning? Do you find like when you're on a set? You're like, wow, I liked the way. So and so does that her way this writer kind of put this together with that director wants me to you. Learn a lot or is it I think so definitely. And like also like. Have a great appreciation for like a Greek costume designer or you know, like leave if there's a dialect coach there's all kinds of of different elements that go into unit production. You can learn something from somewhere someone along the way, you know, what I mean? What I mean, it, you know, I mean, I always feel like you're some actors that get to a certain place like I'm good, you know, I'll do three tanks, and that's it use the best one. You know what I'm saying? Like, I feel like there's a lot of those people to all right? Right. Right. Right. Right. So much technical too. It's like well. You might think you could use that last take that the lady wasn't good out the planks. That you like to take going can ear it. Is there a heat asking question? But with you, I feel like it's it's important. Is there a role or two or more than that that you're that you look at more finally than others? Is there one that kind of sits with you? And I'm sure you get that all the time. Like, I love doing new in town with airy Renee Zellweger, I really love them. They're they're great people. We have great time and all the movies that it was large venture. I love because I love him. I love the way the Europeans of Danish Stewart, and the people are such good people in it's a completely different system over there. I just you know, it's kind of all for one one for all deal in very close with all of them. And then had been there's ones where I love because a wearing got to take my kids like Charlotte's web. You know, the kids got to go, you know, two trillion. So I loved Charlotte's web too. But they all serve different different reasons. You know what I mean? I understand that. And do you find because you're a very honest person? Like, you don't you're not to be Esser. You you shoot from the hip. Do you find that people have a problem with that defined it like in your profession? People have a problem with somebody who speaks their mind. Shake do especially more when you're younger. But now, it's like. It's more -ceptable kind of been around the block. You're like, okay. This is just the way it goes. You can say what you want as you get older more. Which is my my kids are like, oh my gosh. From Jim measure what you're eighty can be horrible. So she a few more questions if you don't and you've been so honored to me this whole time who makes you laugh like who are people are actors that onsite of your family like who are actors that make you who do you. Enjoy. I read something where you legs elephant acts. I think Larry I also love will Ferrell. He said, so funny. I love the office. I we watched the office over and over again. Bick St. fraut. I love guard waste to hysterical. Who else? Bill marie. I think is my daughter downstairs Bill Murray. I loved over Larry elder McCarthy. Mike good friend, Monica rant who was on bomb.

The center I mean, obviously now that you've been more movies that you must your custom to it. But when you were younger you ever starstruck. Where you ever like really never was. Once I did movie with Anthony Hopkins, which by the way, cut from. And I was like I have to tell you. I never starstruck. But I'm starstruck right now. And of course, Lauren Bacall who she became friends. I I was like, you know, that kind of thing to pretty much. I really don't care. Starstruck. You have the west. And I think you're fabulous actor actress. But I'm not like gosh speechless. You what I mean? I think actors will might be starved wouldn't last very long. If they were you're right. I mean, it's something you have to get over pretty quickly. Right. You know? Like, right. Is there anything? I mean, your kids are so lucky to have such an awesome, mom and dad.
