Hello everybody, and welcome to another episode of Comedy Advice podcast where we give self help to the helpless name is Stephan Tani and I'm your host joining me today is a very special guest Jay Chris Newburgh. Yeah check out. Our you. Stephan how are you? My friend? I'm doing very well and very excited to have you on as a guest. I am very excited that you're also going to be coming to Phoenix Arizona. Yes. Awesome and I was just GonNa. Ask you how is comedy been for as far as up goes? How has that been going in quarantine? I think it's gone. To every possible place, it can. Probably go to. I mean the novelty of quarantine was was was large initially and everyone was like, yeah tiger king and this isn't going to be bad and I'm going to get fat. And Yeah, and then I think tom pass by now like soccer I really don't want to be fad and I'm tired of watching TV. And It's just the kind of thing where it's like the whole vehicle one away. Yeah. podcasting takes. The place and some of it. ipod as well which is why I'm saying that I'm not. Talking down to podcasting So we are shitty those podcasts. We Are you have to? You have to convince people? To. I don't know it's like a whole, the the web to me, which is the only solution temporarily out of this whole comedy thing. Seems like gigantic outer space with billions and billions of black holes that you can go down any evening and it could be like Sarah's black hole learn the band Perry's black hole or whoever and it was like I saw someone. Someone posted the other day. They're like peat. Jorn is playing his entire album music for the morning after and I'm like, that's Kinda cool. I would watch that. But like then it's like thirty. Bucks. On a pay thirty bucks to Kinda, watch what's novel when there's so much else available out there free. So to answer your question, even a longer way. I've. Just pop up shows when I felt the need and I tell people if you want to donate. Cool if you don't cool. But as far as actual comedy, I've done it twice since the quarantine I did it once in San Diego and once in Kansas City? And it felt fantastic. I. Mean Like the art of actually getting to do stand up again was. It's magical. It's the greatest feeling I've experienced ever. Getting to do it was great. But you know we were in front of like twelve people. and. When I say we, I mean myself and my Mike and there was it wasn't really that fun to play in front of no one but it was fun to perform again right and. You know and it's like now if you're not like fucking Bert Kreischer Larry the cable guy and you don't have enough fans to like tour theaters by Dr in Santa Stage when everybody sits in their car. Where are you going to play? I think people have looked at this entire corentin totally incorrectly. I think they've looked at it from nothing you asked this but again, I'm just telling you. Oh, go ahead. I think the people have looked at this whole corentin wrong for how selfish and negative made it all about themselves and not on any level even allowing themselves to experience because if you think about it. In truth. How old are you? Thirty. Two great I'm fifty. So in thirty, two years and fifty years, I've never seen anything in my life like this in order view. Yeah. It's it's unique to say the least for sure. Now, people aren't approaching it with a unique. How cool is this approach because then and if they did, it would make story so much better and situation so much better but people leave this fucked. I'm getting screwed I WANNA haircut fuck you government. What, Yeah. But you talk to your friends who are by themselves I've been lucky. Enough my. Evan my girlfriend and you know we don't have crazy days on the same day, which is the best part about it and you hear your friends flipping out. You're totally right and I am in the same Su. I'm in a similar situation where we we haven't been too anxious about it and I think we don't have much to too anxious about except for not seeing. Loved. Ones but I'm not alone. So that's a plus I have a job. So that's another plus plan have a house. So I've domiciled to protect me and sleep in and all that. So I'm not hungry I have toilet paper and everything's really good and I was anxious for a little while when I was wondering if I was still going to have a job or not. But. Now I feel okay and I think that some people they might have the right to be anxious but that have lost their jobs and they're at home, they're they're. Just, kind of fucked but then I think other people that like you said one a haircut or I mean, obviously, you can tell by my hair that I have gotten a haircut in six months but. People that just want. To. Get Out of the House. There are ways to do it safely. And A lot of anxiety built up around a lot of people. What was that m night Shyamalan movie came back recently where it was about. It was about a guy I think he was like a multi personality dude who captured that woman and kept her in the bunker as girlfriend for a while, and then she was like and then someone else was in the bunker and they escape in the second they escaped aliens. Edem, and she sought. So she was like the only choice was the bunker with this crazy lunatic were being eaten by aliens whose John Goodman in it. Yes. I think it was. Cloverfield Lane where was weird spinoff John John Goodman comes down and he's like everyone's dead. And everyone was dead. Yet. He was like I'm going to capture. So it was like you feel thing and all of these people you have a similar logic as people in cloverfield blame we need to get the fuck out of here. We just need to go we need to go. We just need to go where that's why I feel like you and I we would survive in a horror movie if something was really bad that was going to happen because they're those people that have the urge that are like we just got to get out of here we got no, I'm good. Yeah. I'm good absolutely, and like it also like your chances in a horror movie depreciate significantly. If you're young and attractive. So it's like. I mean, like the young hot girls, she's dead black dead. You'd be dead I'd be dead but I'd be dead like fifth. Because he was run out of people to kill. India that's true. I mean I'm like practically virgin. So maybe last a little longer it's possible. You never know I mean, it's just like it's the killers joyce. That's very true but this is all fascinating. I also wanted to talk a little bit about you I I'm curious about how you got into comedy I know that you integrate music and your musician and I know that music kind of I. But like to hear because I will totally botch the story of how you got into comedy and. How you've developed your own really cool style. Dramatic penalties. Dramatic plus. I got into comedy because I didn't want to be the outcome of the song summer of sixty nine by Bryan Adams. When I started performing with the group I was with I said, if I turned thirty and were in northern Michigan playing cover songs I'm out I started the band when I was eighteen I was thirty. We were in traverse city Michigan. We are performing at some bar and looked down on the set list and American girl I was like fuck I'm thirty I'm not doing this. So I decided to quit all entertainment and I decided that I was like I'm going to California if you guys WanNa come with me cool and they were like we're not coming with you so I was a cook. So they stayed and they did another album without me. And I moved down immediately and. You know I wouldn't use words like history, where were you the lead singer and guitar player or I would Lead songwriter leader of the band. Backing. vocalist songwriter. Wow. So you're a pretty vital organ for that. Bad. Break up after or no they did one album. One album after me approved, they didn't need me. No that's like okay. Cool. But it was funny because. I don't. I couldn't look more lovingly back on that period of time or those wonderful individuals that I shared the bandwidth. However, I do think about one year after I'd quit the band. I was sitting on. The top of the lawn at Meadow Brook having just performed a sold out show opening up for amazing Jonathan and they were still in traverse city that same bar so I was like. I think I made the right choice for myself Oh my God. Yeah. seriously. But they've all moved onto different amazing. Wonderful things just in that moment I was our bands going nowhere and I wanna keep performing and so then I quit and then I started hugh Improv I enjoyed Improv so much that I decided well, I'm GonNa do stand up I started Improv and my teacher at Second City told me that I should strive stand up. He goes because you're too focused on blowing or stealing scene meaning like I was to focus on laugh getting the laugh instead of letting the scene develop I was like well, yeah, absolutely, and so they like. So during the show, the clash show I had four biggest laughs easily but I ruined for scenes and that's when he told me. And I was like, okay. So I decided to take stand up classes and I took stand up classes and then I decided to incorporate music and then I decided to stop music. And then I decided to do both. So it's like. I've done everything with it. It's just I like entertaining. That's the most important thing. That's really cool and I was also GonNa ask you I. Didn't realize that you would open for the amazing Jonathan and just a year after you would move to l. a. and started doing comedy no, I was still in Michigan then. I was like a from Michigan I got comedy Central Presents I got comedy central's the world stands up, which was a comedy special in England. Premium. Blend from New York from Michigan and I got Kimmel from Michigan also so I've done all these things damn in Legat year. And I wasn't ready for Kim Oba the opportunity presented itself and I had a good set on comedy central and I just decided I was like I wanted to evolve. And I think that that's the reason I was never bigger. And not, that I'm saying I'm upset by it but like I was told early on by comedy central, you need to decide are you a guitar comedian or you comedian and you need to be one of the two because I was like starting to do more and I'm like I want to evolve right and I was like, no, I'm not gonNA write a three minute comedy Song Sorry I'm not weird al I'm going to keep doing my thirty nine minutes, thirty seconds, two minute songs and you know I've had a very successful career writing for a lot of people and worked a bunch and I get my fifteen twenty dates a week or twenty year and I'm happy with that and do I wish it were bigger? Yeah. But it's always kinda fun being like. Funny. So you can't say anything without sounding like but it's fun being the funniest person that no one knows about like I. Love that I love that I have Fokker face because that's just how I was born. I loved that I listened more than I talk which you would never know by listening to this podcast as you've said to. I. Listen a lot and I and I'm very deadpan when I listen because I'm just thinking it's ruined. That's how I want to evolve comedy and do whatever. But no complaints with again what about a lot bigger if I would've just done one of the other earlier that is really interesting too because I I had not heard of you before I saw that you were coming to house of comedy and I was like sure who's this guy started doing research and I was like this guy's really fucking funny. And I. Think you do a great blend to with your style of I. I was listening to your album came on twenty eighteen. Live live and let die yes. Yes and then I saw some stuff on Youtube from the laugh factory and I think you do a nice blend with jokes guitar and then it's also like you said not full songs per se I mean one is what fire alarm yes it's literally the note yeah. Yeah Yeah And I was going to ask how long did it come to develop the blend of? Hey, this is how much I wanted. You Guitar this much I just want to do jokes and did you have an imbalance ever and say, okay, I need to do less or I need to do more besides what comedy central was saying in terms of song or just don't do guitar will normally what? Okay. So the reason I switched I did three complete four complete Stuart Studio albums with music. and. It was like they did nothing they did like maybe a couple thousand units each nothing crazy. and then I did. Live on the die no guitar except at the very end it's mostly me talking and it was like number one on billboard for seventy weeks or something. Yeah and I'm like cool people like it. It's obviously connected And now I ends like. So now my fifth one, six, one coming out. That's coming out September. It's like that's almost no guitar. It's all clean. There's no swear words on it, and it's just like fucking hard to do man because you just like 'cause I. Swear. Like a sailor all the time, right? When you're on stage, it's like you have to find the beats differently to. Like. There's different beats into like. Oh Man Dude I'm going to the movies are I'm so fucking going to the movies. It's like there's a difference between how you have to deliver it stuff cleaned or sturdy, and it worked out it it just worked out took me a couple of times to record Ghana and. Coming out again and on I wouldn't be surprised if it did one hundred weeks number one because it's clean you know what I mean it's just like it's an example of me playing the game. Yep, Yep. D. Do you feel like there's a certain well, obviously because you just described it but there's a certain I guess playing the game you feel like you're changing yourself a bit in a way that you don't want. Well, I think that I think that the the Osbourne family has homogenized the F. Word to the point where it's more charming than everything else like when they had their successful show on MTV he was saying fucking. Two hundred times a show. Yeah. It wasn't shocking. You're almost like. That's he talks and there are comics depending on how abrasive they are. They can get away with talking like that. You can. You can get a really likable black comic who can say the N Word Eighty five times in ten minutes set and it'll kill. You can also find someone you can find a black comic whose abrasive who doesn't come across likable who said three times and people be like. I don't know and it seemed like a lot to it's all about your interpretation, your delivery, your likability, everything it's like you can listen. Like. You can get any message across depending on how successful you are with your ability. Right? You know and it's like there's examples of continuously every day. Right. And on the notes of likeability and and the styles of cursing cursing guitar. Guitar I was also looking back season six of America's got talent where you went up and you did your jokes and Piers Morgan was not a fan how he loved it. and was her name Osborne. Sharon. Osborne. was a fan but peers was was not and how what what did you expect going into it? Did you think that? You were going to go because you made it to the quarterfinals, right? Yeah. Made it past 'cause they brought me back for wildcards. That's right where you got to Roast Pierce Morgan which Well, that was funny story I mean it's it's the experience I had on. was, not, my favorite it wasn't a bad experience. It was just I played it. All wrong. It was like a really yeah. Because I didn't know that I was coming on as the villain I like before the show like I was really research so much stuff like whatever I'm like I'm such a nerd about comedy and I was going to be On that show so I started researching pierce and I started researching how a and Sharon and why they do that why they were successful and I was really excited to meet all of them. Yeah. I you're not allowed to talk to him. You can't come near them have security near our how he was much more friendly but like they were you can't. You can't. You can't go near him. You can walk by them whatever So by the time I figured out like when I was I like my first time on the show severe excited and I was like Oh this is great and they're like, Pierce doesn't like you and I'm like well, tell that guy he can suck. It was like full on Adrenalin just come off stage in front of two thousand people nick cannon sticks of fucking microphone in my face and goes. This guy doesn't like you. What do you think I tell you what I don't think you can go fuck himself but then I'm like Oh shit I'm on camera and I already told this guy he can suck it. Cool. So now I'm the villain but I don't know this yet because I've never been the villain on a reality show, right do my other two or three times and it works, but it doesn't work at all because the way they mixed me was very strange. In no way. Am I making excuses for anything earlier? Like I know but just I just want to refresh like when I was like, Oh, it'd be much bigger I'm not bitter. I'm saying the choices I made were the choice I mean But the and the piercings like by the time I figured out I, was like fuck it you know what? I mean bring me back. I'll tear into the sky for five minutes. Off. And they were like, what do you mean I'm like I'll just wrote the shit out of the skies near like seriously I am obviously not GonNa win. Let's do it. So I'm like, what do you need and I said I want a Tux. An American flag and that's it. I kind of looked like I was like, I'm an approach this like my go fuck yourself and I went on and it was on the cover of the mirror in Britain the next day and it was just like. It could not have gone over better and I still lost to people who jump up their shirts on. So there you go. There's TV. God Man. Well, I thought it was hilarious I I love how it turned out and I love the roast and it's cool because I also saw the you wrote you also indirectly roasted Simon cowl with this song that Dane Cook performed on America. I wrote that song that was awesome. Yeah. That was really cool and you toured with Dane Cook as well. How how did you end up? Connecting with Dane Cook and touring with him. Uh I became friends with his manager and his manager introduced me and then he and I worked together for a while we were super close and then we are not at all close anymore and I usually don't speak about because they ended up talking for fifteen minutes about what a knucklehead I think years. But but he's fantastic. I will say what I say which I prepare all the time. He's phenomenal comedian of never seen anyone with the charisma like him. He's insanely successful and he's an asshole. He's such a prick of a human. This is my opinion and I stand by it for. That's totally fair. He he was say my I don't have really much of an opinion about him except for when I was in high school that was I think the first CD I don't remember who had it. But there was one CD that was in Cottonwood Arizona Dane Cook, and it got passed around to everybody. So I was my introductory was like my gateway comic for comedy and so he's he's incredible like he like he's show he was so great at what he was doing. But like. Whatever. Yeah. So I would much rather have known him only as a fan. Fair that's fair yeah. And then you also toured with Russell Peters and I know that you wrote for both of them and I know that you're we were talking about early you're a writer. Well. How did you get into the writing and did it come after you were pretty steady into comedy or? Write songs. Stand up. How did I mean everything gets well, it's like, okay. First off. I did. Towards Russell. Russell lunchtime. He's amazing. I couldn't say anything. Say Anything Nicer about him. He couldn't be more generous. He couldn't be more funny. He's so fucking funny I love Russell. Russell had a pilot for. Netflix called the Indian the Indian detective. which I believe is a one season on Netflix. And his brother sent me the pilot. And said, can you put jokes in this? So I punched up the pilot to Indian detective. Now the show got picked up after that I don't know if they used anything at all of mine in that. But I think they did because it's like I know Russell and I know how talks to know how he would respond because I've been vans and buses and planes with him a billion times and I've seen them respond. So a Indian detective got picked up, went to Netflix's they a season I wrote the song the Dane performed for Taylor, swift on the tonight show that was bizarre because I was there too and she's just so nice. Just got into people ask and I said okay. That's to answer your question people said, how did you get into writing people like? Will you help me right this? That's awesome. That's yeah. I mean it is what it has man. It's just like I literally started my craft of joke writing probably twenty years ago try one joke every hour during the day that I'm awake on facebook and I know I've booked work off facebook because show runners absurd visit great joke writer. Let's bring this kid in. And it's completely from my very first job. I got was the show runner randomly was following me on facebook and brought me into host produce, and so that was my first TV gig and that was four hundred and five episodes of a game show network show. I A by the way I haven't seen all of those episodes but I love idiot test. Oh. Yeah. Test Show. I think it was new, Year's Eve. I was waiting for my wife and her friends to get ready. So sitting down with some friends and we're like, let's watch something on Netflix and I found it and I was like I don't know who ben Glebe is I don't know what this is, but it seems fun and we just blazed through twenty episodes. It was. So it's such a fun show so it is it really is. Great it was just literally it was Ben's first show. He was hot after Chelsea. Lately, he has a little. Like a little bit of heat on him. and He Benhas. Bengali's. He's a perfectionist he works. fucking hard he is. He's a, he's an incredibly talented stand up is such a good person but man, this fucking guy works late so like. We would my call time would be ten am he would get an at twelve than we would shoot five shows, and then of course, I would have to sit there until two o'clock in the morning until he approved everything for the next day and it was just like. Yeah. But it was cool. I was working I was working on Hollywood. Sad. The past and I was doing whatever night food every day and yeah. Great I couldn't say enough nice stuff about Ben Ben is phenomenal and. I would not be surprised if bend in his own show and against you. That's amazing. Nice that's cool and then. With all of this stuff that you've been doing I mean. It's so cool to see somebody with so many talents D- You, envision yourself in the future sticking to one thing or just continuing to to go through multiple facets because I think that. The gifts that you have allow you to be able to inter. We've through all of the things that you're doing and grow all of them to well Steph in my goal is I WANNA be out the game by the time I'm sixty. So like ten years from now I want to be done. So I'm going to save as much money as they can I'm gonNA write as many things that possibly can why my brain is still relevant. I'm going to save I'm going to work I'M GONNA. Bust my ass. So then I can spend time doing small stuff from sixty till the end of my life. Wow. That's what I WANNA do but and I mean like I just finished a just finish punching up a movie. In it's like it's a South African movie which means nothing but you know it pays like I just punched up this other script. It's like I do a little punch up and so it's like if these go, that's what it means real money. So that's the exciting stuff but until then I do look forward to doing stand up. In Arizona at Rick and Tammy's Place House comedy. Love it is. The link is going to be in the show notes for everybody is in Phoenix that wants to go.

So for the self help portion we have quote, and so we like to be able to I like to get motivated with an inspirational quote before getting into the questions I, like to ask our guests if they have any inspirational quotes that helped them get them through their days. I always use the Wasn't a girth or GIO T H quote be bold and mighty forces will come to your aid. I liked it. I, haven't I. Haven't heard that one before for. Well I'm sorry guest hasn't said that one before. God Yeah. I don't know who actually said it. We'll find out. Yes, it is. I'm so excited it's Gio. I think it's go go go sir I pronounce that Duet. Whatever, but it's people the muddy sports come. All right release question. That's awesome. All right. Well, we've got our first question. This is from our Fan Marty. Says advice to deal with needles. I've had a phobia of needles for years now and today it hits its worst. I was at the dentist going to get a filling done at the time I didn't know they were going to do needles but as soon as I saw it, I went into a really. Bad. Panic attack nothing they recommended calm you down and they have to reschedule. I've been going to a therapist for two months ago two months now but it hasn't helped i. need some advice to help me cope with needles. Really bad. Okay. So go to the store, go to a fabric store, get some sewing needles, several sewing needles skit like maybe five, maybe six tiny sewing needles. Then the very first layer of your skin you'll realize you can actually like. And not hurt yourself with the actual pin. Some need you to place the five separate pins into five separate fingers. So you'll have five pins so you look like a miniature. SCISSORHANDS came. So now that you have needles and pens, you'll still be afraid of the needles, but you'll have these pins here to protect you. So you'll be able to say to yourself when next time you're afraid of a needle OBE itch, don't make me some in the pins. So it's not only getting over your fear of needles. It's also using it as a weapon combating the needles with pins. Fight needles with needles. That that's really good. Okay. Start small with micro needles, and then work your way up to the big needles. Do. Yeah, yeah, yeah or you could just not be afraid of needles. That's true. You could not be afraid of needles maybe you could just tell yourself hate needles aren't so bad and then develop just take the fear and place it on something else. Yeah. Heights I think. that. You could be afraid of realistic. Yeah remember Baboo from Yogis are key would follow who's the cartoon character yes. It would follow genie and he would go Y- Apple Apple would. Just get that guy to come and you apple dapple the needle dude and he'll be fine. Oh I. Love It. That's beautiful. Are Real Perfect I. Think we answered that one we're GonNa go to our last question here. This one's from core it's from our fan Chris I don't like when guests at home touch my books start to read them without even asking me how do I handle this? Maybe stop only having pop up books that are scented. For your guests to play with. Maybe start using like some different books with maybe like alternative pages like lava lava pages will be good like no one would touch 'cause if you like if you've seen the hit show that that in the. Floor. The air is lava and books are lava would totally work. I liked that we could also do a call back from the previous advice and you could get little needles that could point out like a booby traps. So when people try and go for the books they'll. Yeah. or You could vary a needle. On page fifty eight. And then just like. Not even tell him and then they'll be reading and it'll be like son of a bitch. Pinned by H fifty eight it's fucking but. The slow burn of booby-traps. A small small. It doesn't that sound like the name of every alternate possibility to Christopher. Reeve movies. The slow burn of booby trap. starring. Christopher. Reeve. With Special Guest Christopher, Reeve and needles. Extra. Special guests needles. That'd be amazing like that call Christopher Reeve. Well, he's dead isn't he? You'll probably answer maybe. Yeah maybe he will from the grave. that. Any other defense mechanisms for the books maybe take out all your books, replace them with yet or get a Laker kindle. You know what? I mean. Oh you have books we get you know to read Sodas of kindle and doesn't take a ton of spaces space I think you're right books are like the makeup of the book of the intellectual it's like showing how smart your brain is how beautiful your brain is yet but in addition to that, it's like you can you can either know something or you can have a piece of literature collecting dust or your house proving that you could know something if you brought them over to show them. or You could just fucking no it. Yeah. That's what I was gonNA say books are proof that you're dumb 'cause you need the book to understand. Thank. You should also be no it really. It's one hundred percent. Beautiful. All right. So get up get a nook or a kindle. Kindle it'll it'll save your life and then password protected. So nobody can be like Oh. What you got here. Tom Book. nope. nope not. GonNa do it. Sorry. Well that's excellent. Well, those are all the questions. Thank you it. Yeah. Thank you Chris. What have you got going on? Where can people find you? What would you like to plug? Year. The digital. Marketing Guy shouldn't you like figure out where to plug it in Expecting your brilliance to make this the the highest listen to. A podcast I've ever been this is going to be like the runaway train.

It's pretty good. I mean i nerd out on stuff. That's what is called a fun savant. Nice so i'd love to know. I'd love to really be offensive aunt where i could identify every song i. This is just too many. But i can identify. Some vaunt is fred from the q. Documentary he's like he's like this is he talks about all the different ways to do kieu. Yeah he designs his own. That's right that's whole special level of font savant. Ms is when you're designing your own and it's like that son seri you know. How are you say that. I love fonts. I don't i can't construct them by. Do love them. I have had to. Because i'm a comedian in this day and age of diy. I've had to learn so many trades. That i never thought i would learn graphic designer. You know video editor. Oh everything. I learned how to during the pandemic either learn lighting which. I'm not doing a very good job of on this podcast but did you see cockburn special. Yeah it was awesome like that dude obviously taught himself a bunch of shit. Yeah i did Thirty songs in thirty day challenge for myself in may in march and in march and when i was watching that i'm like oh he did the whole year of what i did right so yeah i love. I love that he did that. He's like okay pandemic. i'm gonna make the best use of this time drive myself crazy. He literally locked himself in a room and went crazy. Or that's what it seems like to us. Watch right his so. It would seem yeah. That's i agree about being a comedian. If it's something that you want in your life and you're gonna go full force. You have to do a little bit of fucking everything website design. Html graphic design editing lighting color correction. Yeah it's one might say jack-of-all-trades and a master of none one might say it's true that is true. You said master of none like you meant. I know no to title of something else that's on net flicks by these at sorry. Is that what you meant. That was the oh. Is that what you're doing. Okay jesus taxed. It's awesome that show. Show okay. i hate that show. I didn't know this was a callback from a previous episode. Do baby just life. You've said it in life. I don't know my i think it's the worst thing i've ever seen personally but whatever i i like i have opinions. Yeah that's fine. Great fun on the logo. Good font good rate music supervisions speaking of music. Yeah that's all he does is segues skies a segue master. You got him here so this. So who contacted you. The producers the director net flicks t pain. Who called you the producers. They're called banger films. Their company out of canada and they made i believe they made hip hop revolution. Which is really at. Have you watched it. Yeah oh yeah yeah. I think. I know what you're talking about so good. I mean as a hip hop fan. It was like oh my god so brilliant and russell peters is one of the executive producers got and and so they contacted me. I looked them up. I found out that they did hit up revolution. And i'm like yeah i'm in. They didn't know if they were gonna use it or not. But i was like you know whatever you guys wanna use use it in the yeah. That's they founded. They found me by internet. Search that's why also as a comedian have to be an seo specialist specialist keywords man. Did you think that's how they found us through like a keyword search. Was it like oh yeah just auto tune and then something lead to something. Yeah wow was it on your own kind of. What is it on your website or like youtube. The video youtube got it. They actually found another video of me doing that bit. But it i didn't have licensed that particular video and so i have it from my special which i own that that version and yeah so you're able to get as they interesting pleasantly did so. Did you know that you were not cut out of it until you watched it. I didn't know this is like two years ago just came out. It was about two years ago that they contacted me. And i'd forgotten about it. And i saw this. I thought people trending trending on twitter like them talking about t pain and auto tune on this documentary. And i go oh. I wonder if that's the one the documentary and i looked it up and it was. Oh cool that's you know. What i found was really crazy though. I wanna make sure that i say this. They they kind of made. It seem like i was grouped into a bunch of clips that were like kind of talking negatively to t pain negatively about tv. And that's not the intention on by bit i. Hopefully that came you. Listen to the show. So he pains. He listens fan. Yeah he's okay. Did you grow up like a hip hop fan. Yeah so i was at break dancer. It's how i lost my hair spending on my head me to wait. But which were you at break dancer at all. Yeah yeah. I used to break dance. Not i was not good. I was a kid who was trying to break dance. And i started playing when i was fourteen. I spent my bar mitzvah money. Dj equipment. and so i i used to work at the swap meets with my dad selling clothing and they had a record stand. There called rhodium records. It's this famous swap. Meet record stand at the rhodium. And i would buy all my spend all my money that i made that day on records and it would take him back to the suburbs and play him for my friends and dj parties and so that was like before the internet. So i could be the taste maker of hip in thousand oaks. Oh my gosh that's fine. I love record. Swaps like record can swap stuff records record swops like swapping records. Oh this is something different. This is a swap meet. Oh is this why we're meet meet. Yeah just like i know. It sounds like you're going to swap something but you actually just by the swap money for stuff. Oh i see yeah. I think that you used to do like. Hey all swampy this but like now. It's basically like opener market you. We used to sell clothing discount clothing. And then you know wholesale prices and then they somehow had some supply for record labels or would. I don't know how they got all these records. But they had the best selection of records in in the singlets dope but record swapping. What are you what what did you. What jewels have you swapped. It's like comic book trae. Yeah oh man all kinds of stuff. Although i just so. I have my albums there behind me. I just realized going through them. Because i bought a new turntable that my steely dan albums are missing. I don't have any steely. Dan albums ended up at the thought meet. That's could've added swap them. Did you or do you did not. I did not bring my house and take my steely denims and swap them. Okay no because there used to be the k. usf k. Usf which is one of the greatest college radio stations in history which is right near my house in san francisco. The college radio station at usf college. They used to have a record swap. Meet like once i model. That is all that that thing now. I think it was like see. Yeah yeah oh yeah it was like once in a while and you'd get like a little thing in the mail it's like our and it was awesome. It was awesome. you take. You could take junk like like. Here's another linda ronstadt album. You know that's been clot up by my cat or something and people like i'll take it. I just went. Really i just. I just went to like a metal market in echo park and it was like it was like one of those but it was all metal stuff is all metal record. Sales met sounds awesome. T shirts and random stuff like that. It's pretty rad. Yeah that's cool. I didn't know you like metal. I like i like lots of stuff. I mean i did buy kate. Bush record at the metal swap. So that tells you about my medal and cavendish metal kate. Bush would be like my thing. I think that's linguistic none. That is what that is. Yeah yeah is is. I don't know what kind of music kate bush is like acoustic folk music man. She's like avant garde pop basically you know she could maybe lumper in. I wouldn't lumper in with. I'm just trying to segue back into the topic. She was big in the eighties and so as track that. I liked by laurie anderson. Oh superman they did not talk about that at all because it's actually foe. It's not auto tune. This is the thing that look at that i was very i got really. I used to really confused voter and auto tune and the talk box because they're just kind of like literally three different ways to get a similar result. Yeah yeah the sound of voter is much different to me than auto. So voters like robotic voice to me right and talk box. I believe is the same thing as a voter I dunno evoke coder. Is the keyboard where you're actually assigning pitch to the voice that you're bringing through it and then talk box is like you're playing same thing you're playing guitar or keyboard to affect the pitch but you have a tube in your mouth. Yeah so you can like do expression that way like the you actually shape the sound with your and then a auto tune is like a plug in that makes you sing on certain key seeing on key. It's pitch it's pitch. It's pitch adjustment right but what we know when we talk about t pain we talking about like is like the auditing was designed to not be apparent at all and basically people with the settings. And that's what i love about. This story is. It's like people using technology the wrong way and then that becoming exactly i really liked about this and i learned a little bit. That's why all the criticism about t pain is totally unwarranted. And i've always said this for years before. This documentary is like t paintings using it. Obviously he's telling you he's using auto tight. He's using it as an effect or an instrument and saying. Hey look how cool. I can make this out. And this is a different sound the people and then he gets the criticism for all the people who are using it surreptitiously and secretively. And there's almost everybody in pop. Music or in music in general uses auto tune because nowadays. It's actually the sound that we are accustomed to like few. Don't use auto tone. It's going to sound weird on a pop record even if you're an amazing vocalist. There's just use it to kind of smooth things out not that it just now is almost us as an effect as well like a reverse or a delay. But t pain's doing it like so. Honestly he totally didn't deserve any of that. I really like it makes me. It makes me mad because it's like heaven gotten criticism before where you're like. But i'm not doing that. You're criticizing me for something that other people are doing. Yeah it's so frustrating to me. Imagine how it must feel for him. Are you tired of wasting time. Making trips to the grocery store.

Xfinity proud partner of team usa. I didn't understand was my friend like that man. You really like early music for real singers literally. At that point i couldn't listen. Is he right. Fuck fuck out music. And i and that is the very moment and i don't even think i realized this for a long time. That's the very moment that started like a four year depression for me. So that was t- paying on the on a plane getting usher basically having his hero. Tell him that he ruined music and what he said though. Is you fucked up music. We didn't actually hear the clip when you guys heard it listening but i think he said something like you really fucked music up but this is the time if i were t- pain i have to go into my four agreements artist's way toolbox of mental tools. And i would say to myself. Yeah i did fuck. It's never going to be the same erupted. Yeah yeah exactly. That's the perfect word. He disrupted music. He's the uber of the music. Is the hoover so you do you. Who is like eric. Who is your comedy. God there's so many. I mean but who robin okay. Robin you imagine going robin in the green room like robin. I've always wanted to meet you. I love your comedy. He's like eric. Love your guy just got to say. You've ruined comedy huge compliment robin williams he. He's like oh. I've made an impression on you. That like i destroyed your art form. Yeah that'd be boss. Yeah you ruined comedy bus. Worst robin williams impression ever but i could hear. It was in there as a kernel of truth in there. But you need a robin tune. I yes that's that's that's. I'm picturing like modern pop songs done like that. Everyone a microphone. That made you sound like robin williams to two thousand. just both. i don't know how he does. I never tried. it's hilarious. I mean but i mean to meet your idol and have someone say that you and then be like. I don't know i kind of. I don't know it depends for me. I guess i think depends on my mood of having me things i'd be like on the other. Fuck you like. I believe in this and it's and it works. I mean th the crazy thing is like it's not like he was an unknown who hadn't done anything spectacular teep and i'm talking about. You know like he had already sold a ton of albums and worked with a bunch of great people like you know. It's not like you is some unknown. The never sold the guy sold millions of records. But that'd be dumbing. Usher said that to an unknown guy who hadn't sold anything that would just be a total dick thing. There's already kind of addicting as the worst with like. Hey you have no power in the industry. I think you're terrible immediately. I don't know much about heaping. And i never have. I kind of missed hip hop in the early two thousands to the mid two thousands. Even though i worked for a hip hop label which is kinda weird But so this is cool. I didn't know much about his history until watching this. Doc i was Very it was cool. I didn't know that He like how he came up in the whole kanye west stuff and the i just knew him as the auto tune guy like. He's the only way i think. Now he's getting a lot of because of this documentary because of heated tiny desk concert and now he also does stuff on twitch and he's posting clips from that and i think he's having. I wouldn't say a resurgence. Because he's never really went away but he's having a something new forming around him. I think i'm really happy for that. Because people are finally recognizing him and giving him his credit the most contradictory and hypocritical. Part of that documentary is right in the beginning. When wendy williams my girlfriend totally pointed this out to me in this is totally her observation. We were watching it. And wendy williams goes jaylo can't sing without auto tune and so and so can't sing without auto tune and this person the crowds going right and my girlfriend goes. I'm willing to williams. I can't talk without breast implants. And i can't talk to you without lip. Implants augmentation yes. She's outta tuned her whole pot. Yeah that's true. I mean it's it's pretty easy to throw rocks at people like that. 'cause i mean i mean fucking peter frampton what was he using in like the seventies and you know like. That was a talk box on guitar. Talk by. I believe he would play the guitar through that. Just read about that. Because i didn't really know how that worked but i didn't get that what it was doing is running a signal into his mouth. So it's almost like a jaw harp. Like he's shaping the sounds and that's getting picked up on the mike so it was actually electro acoustic. I thought it was like doing something out out an amp but it's just like it's coming. This sound you're hearing is coming through the mouth into the mike. Yes oh yes. oh yeah. It's like air shooting the sound. And then you're shaping it with your mouth. Yeah yeah there's the guy on twenty four karat magic. Bruno mars song. His name is mr talk box and he does it. He's great and then now there's one that's hose lewis. Ooh there's a device that doesn't have a hose it's called electro and i. I don't know how it works. But i think you like it. You can play it on your phone do you can like. I don't know how you do. What is outed road roger. Troutman news talk to it yet Yeah well he has. He had it on kiko right right but signal the special. Yeah he's saying signaled the keyboard through his mouth through the tube and that's coming up on the mike. I think it's a korg keyboard. There's one that's like really well known for that. And it's like a small. One it's like a reverse malacca right. Yeah it's kind of a reverse melodic. That is so wild. mike is like it's just. It's kind of like like when bob dylan plugged in. You know micro korg. That's what nick is saying. Yeah that makes sense. But that's yeah. I think it's called a make record but it's it's so dumb to like blame anyone for using technology to use for their. I think just. It's just so lame 'cause like so many people have done it even plugging in going from acoustic to electric or frampton or roger troutman. It's like who cares if people enjoy it like who the fuck cares. It's such a. It was such a weird backlash. You know like i don't know if there's like an equivalent today of something like that. Well i well. I was gonna say like this idea. That like t pain ruined pop music and we're just really commercial music in the first place like that was pure somehow before t pain like. That's the implication. I mean the series is called this pops and it's like it's like the people that they interview in their sudani is never had a pop. Hit you know. So it's interesting. It's just more about like how that get brought up into the upper echelon of mass culture. That's true but what would the equivalent of today be. I don't know. I think the lesson i took from it is anytime you get criticized for doing something new and different doing something different. Which in my stand up. I've gotten criticized for sure. I use video. I use music. I do stand up but at the base of it. But i do all these other things that i know a lot of comedians. Don't lighting and the way that i got from this is keep doing it as you're doing something amen do you head fans there and t shirts and i watched your said. It was awesome. Not only just very funny but super creative. Like i was like this is fucking awesome. Show like you have a show. It seems like a performance. Thank you for saying that. This is how i see it. If you're really being true to yourself which that show is me being true to myself then do it. You know like what you're supposed to do as a performer. As especially as a comedian is to be yourself to tell your story into you. Know not try to conform to society. In if i were to go along with what the criticized the criticize irs said. That's exactly what i would be doing right. So that is a really really fucking fascinating point in very poignant as well as like so many people try to tear you down if you try something out of the box something that seems scary in new and also something that they can't do like i. I have to admit. I hated the bo burnham special that he just released because i was like fuck you for being like good. Fuck you for this. I couldn't watch it because i was like. Oh fuck. I hate it so good because like i want to do that. Like god damn it. But it's man i. I agree one hundred percent about like comedies a we. I don't even know if it were like exists in the music world as much as it does in the comedy world. Where if you try something. Different people don't like it or comedians. Mostly you know. And i don't know what that is i. It's like there'll be like that's not stand up it's like well what the fuck is and why are you the stand up like god the. Why are you stay. I've had comedians. Who are from my friends one in particular. Tell me to my face like he has no tact right this person but name name you gotta love him at the end of the day. I'm not gonna say who it is. But he's like argued with me at the laugh factory and he's arguing with me like you shouldn't be doing shows that the left actor you should be at the roxy i love. I like what you do but it's not for the standup up club. You know what i mean like. He's like a pretty well known comedian. And okay we're friends. We're still friends but it's just like just okay. It's dane cook. Isn't it no no. Nothing took up joking. No i was gonna say 'cause you said he's well known i was gonna say like after he's done admonishing us like now i'm gonna go hit up that open mic and burbank. But think about what i told you. Yeah headlining comedy factories. But since then. I've seen him do songs not necessarily on stage but like i've seen him put out songs and you know it's it's phillippi. Sparks that you know what it is. Okay no i just put out a song. It's all guys. it was beau burn. No actually a heated grade. But it's a movie it's not stand up. You know nobody bo actually. I met him when he was seventeen. We both did a show in london. As tv was tv. Appearance called this. What is it called. The world stands up and he was seventeen. He just started getting popular from his internet video from youtube videos. And i had seen him already know who he was and man. I loved him from the jump. I loved what he did. It's so cool to see him. Go from that to this. What he was doing back then was like genus. A little seed of of that in some people didn't get it right but now is just so it's so it's so obvious how much of a genius that guy is. It's like absolutely next level in how he like per perfectly stage manages his performances and stuff. That's i saw cobbs a bunch of years ago. And i was like blown away. I was like the like the precision of everything that he does and but it does really surprise me how much i wonder if it's like costano comics pretty much. Our failed at everything else they do and then they get into stand up comedy and they're like oh i can do this and then if they see someone who obviously you may have gone to like music school or theater school as well and you're good at all these things like i can't handle it if you do too many good things you know speaking of that. I have a weird connection to this doc. Which has to do with failing and other things. Which is i used to do. Music journalism and julianne shepherd was my editor at the portland mercury. First things. I got in all weekly and we randomly only knew each other off the internet and i was like hey. Can i send you this. And she's like yeah. Run it so yeah. And then she's now. I think a jazz abell or something. She thinks she used to work at the fater as well. So she's a she's a big pain defender in this film right and she's actually in the. She's a journalist. Talks a lot about two paintings sort of defense and you know talks about how the tiny desk was like his. You use administer. Yeah yeah so. Yeah we've met. We met like. I don't mean it's been years since i've seen her talk to her. But yeah it's great to see her in this. Also jas clayton. Who is dj. Rupture is a great voice in this film as well. He's also another person. I and another failed life. I've interacted with and then see then. Johnny never talked to but she. I saw her perform a couple of times. She's great as well. I had a feeling that you'd be a fan of hers. Yeah yeah maybe like the series. I checked out. Two of the other films in this series. And i noticed a big difference between the first one which is about swedish pop music and then the third ones about country pop music and this one was like those two other ones kind of had weird like kinda host e hosting narrator people and. I feel like this. One didn't really have much. Which i think is good. I mean kind of like your window into it to like have some emotional stakes to it. Which i feel like the other ones. Don't do so well but like the third one has orville pack like kind of narrating talking about country pop and the first one. I don't remember the dude is. But it's i mean it's a fascinating story about like how sweden has come to dominate the pop world and i've read someone on twitter said that these are basically thirty for thirty s for music. That's funny yeah. It's kind of like that. That was interesting. Why why they varied the style of each one because the one that i mean they should all have a through line like they could license clips from my entire special for the whole thing. I wouldn't mind but it'd be awesome if it. Yeah because then. I would have like a thirty five second right. Netflix special four netflix specials. I've been on seven episodes of i. I liked the boy band one. I liked the first one because you know like good. I enjoyed it. The boys to men and of arc in styles totally different. From this one. Though i would say Oh yeah i don't have hosts and then the third one has a host. And i'm like wait. Did i miss the host and the first you know what there was a pandemic going on right headache. Get it done. I think that maybe that had something to do with Why the styles varied. But if they're by themselves they all stand by themselves absolutely. So we're you at t pain fan from the jump where you have fan like from the early two thousands eric or that. Yeah you know. I was always a fan and then i i used to do a lot of parody songs. I do some now and again but it used to be all parodies and t pain was one of the artists that i parodied. In the first time. I tried to parody him. You know you learn a lot from about music by doing parodies because you have to imitate in try to get that sound and trying to get his harmonies. I was like whoa. He's got some really different harmonies. And i recognized his talent. Like how you know. People were already criticizing the auto tune thing at the beginning. And you know finding the sound and then finding all the harmony parts it was. It was actually really hard. Yeah absolutely so you were like this guy's talented from from a auto tone news auto tune user's perspective. It's actually really fun. I bet i mean like to hear your voice sound different than it sounds. It's actually really fun. It brings out a different performance from the user. So do you still do auto tune in your bit near standup. I did it in my life show. I have a if you saw the show. We did together. But i have not auto tune brand or anything but it has like a tuner in it. That sounds like auto tune. And i use that in my show. Yeah that's awesome. I saw like you like to improvise with audience members and then do a song about them or whatever. The interaction was or is yeah. That's that's a particular skill set that i extremely admire. Because that's so fun. Thanks is this. You know like any of this stuff. Jesus do it enough and you you get you get some results but and if it doesn't work it doesn't work and you just make fun of it not working. You think that's something that you had to learn over years of doing standup if it doesn't work it doesn't work or were you always like. Did you always bring that to to your performance. Yeah i think. I think the less you care about it working the better off. You're going to be at his something isn't it. It's it's weird. It's like you can only do so much preparation. And then when you know when you do improv classes they say mistakes are gifts so you have to. You know if you if you make a mistake. The best thing you can do is try to turn it around right. So that's all that it. Yeah that's that's awesome. That's something i've been trying to bring more into my stand up. Act is just like not holding it. So tightly like hold it loosely and like realized that the audience is there is like a lotta times. you like. I'm performing without a net. It's like well. The audience is your net. You know they want to see you do well so i told somebody a friend of mine was nervous about going up the other night and i was trying to pep talk and i go i go. You know what's the worst that can happen. You bomb your ass off. But guess what i'm still gonna love you and i thought that's what that's what i tell myself. Yeah i was. That guy knows actually. I mean we've actually somebody else but it should be me right. Yeah absolutely yeah. You gotta be your. You got be a good friend to yourself sometimes when that happens because we've all had bombing nightmares. Lord knows i've had my share. Oh yeah yeah. i've i've done a couple of corporate gigs. That were like. Oh man please get off the stage now. I need to go like. I don't want what happened. Tell me what happened. Should i i. I'll tell you mine. I i've had. I've had enough of them but one of the big big ones was. I was actually telling. Chad opitz this at cobbs was i did a corporate event for a For a group for the it was the national. Basically down's syndrome association. They were doing their national fundraiser. And i was the entertainment and It did not go well. I literally got booed off the stage. Whoa booed it wasn't a boo. It's because i don't want to sound like i'm making fun of kids with down syndrome it. It wasn't them it was me it was like a was like hundreds of families there were there do fundraising for this awesome charity. I was the only entertainment which i didn't know it was also daytime. Not in a in a club or anything. It was in basically a cafeteria at this mansion in napa valley and it was like five. Pm and it was they also when i came out. And he's like hey remember bring your checks up and then here's your headliner and everyone's like and i came out and and as they're serving dinner and nobody was listening to me at all and then i thought i should do some crowd work and that started the train the hill so i basically said to this girl as this your boyfriend you sitting next to and she was like you're being rude and then that chant caught on and then a few minutes later i had hundreds of kids screaming. You're being rude to me onstage. And then the host came back out and was like give it up for pain. And i walked off the stage and it was like i don't ever want to do this ever again. Quit comedy well. First of all recognize that you're in one of the hardest situations for comedy to go over. I don't think they were expecting a show. That's number one. No they're eating. They serve them food right when you came out. What are you going to go. Yeah well you're hungry. Yeah they're eating. And there was what all i could tell was. Maybe maybe a ketchup shortage. There was not enough catch. I i'm not trying to be flippant. But they were there were. A lot of people are upset over a lack of ketchup. I guess and yeah it. Just went downhill fast. And then i went to because it was a mansion in napa. They gave me the presidential suite to spend the night. Drink free wine. They had all these games after the fundraiser thing. That i was as the i just left as a fuck this and i got out and i went to my car and the valet was like how was your evening sir and i was like my car and then it like way too long to get my car. And they'll parents were coming out with their kids because they were trying to settle their kids down all their kids. We're looking at me waiting for my car. And they all started screaming. You're being rude some more to me more. After you're done i was on. They're being they're being rude exactly but i get overwhelmed by by sound and by smell. I get like quickly overwhelmed in. Both of those things were happening in that room at the time. The screaming of your being rude in the sound of ketchup bottles being squeezed us going to say this smell of the lack of cash. There was a serious shortage. There's a big demand and a big shortage of ketchup. So well feel lucky that you got booed off the stage and got to stop. Yes thank you. Have you been booed in going. Well i didn't get booed but might as well. This is a long time ago. I was doing a show for the california association of poultry. When you get that name right. The pause pauses the best part. You mean cap the cap yes. Sorry i didn't know you were an inside cat. And they found me through. I went to cal. Poly and i was written up in the cal poly magazine as being a comedian. And that's all the credits need. He's a comedian that went to the same school and he's twenty years younger than anyone at this at this party so i go to the show. It's like in a banquet room. there's a stage we're having dinner. I and i'm sad seated right next to peter. Zaki guess what company he works for or he owned aisin chickens. Yup really well. They were there at the other. Peter zaky's aki farm. Oh yeah chicken farm but tyson was that another another table. Sure and so we're talking and you know i'm trying to be nice and make friends 'cause i'm going to go up later. Which is you never wanna sit with the audience before you go up on stage and get to know. Never so so i go up and i'm doing my you know this is a while ago so i'm even younger and so my sensibilities like i'm talking about hip hop talking about pop culture and these guys are like what we just know about campbell. Yeah and the one that i did have. That was chicken related. Is i i do this. Remix of the chicken dance. Oh wow that the data on that one. Oh my goodness i sell is. I sell it as like the best song ever that. It's like the the the monster jam of the summer. And i go hit that and it's like chicken nets and then i go remix and i'd turn it into a reggae beat and i call it the jerk chicken dance right nice so even that i went over i kept doing it. I did it like two three times. All yeah so. I was like all right. This is your chicken material. I think ahead to do forty five minutes or something. It was the longest forty five minutes. Ever do those are was just dead silent or was there any of it. Yeah that's what those corporate gigs are. They're mostly just silent with people's looking at you stunned like i've had some good ones. But you gotta keep in mind you gotta keep in mind their work so they can't be seen laughing at certain things that are you know kind of sexual or write off color. Whatever now i've learned to ask beforehand. Who can i make fun of. Gimme some names. Give me some titles points people out to me. Because that's what they want just you they want you to roast the boss or the boss's boss's yeah just picturing corporate at like the scientology center like who can i make fun shows. They used to do a bunch of shows slash recruitment says. Yeah you sign. Hollywood me no okay. I did hear that they have an open mic. Yeah i'm jewish. Oh right right right. No they kind of what it was but i mean they produced show. It was really nice at this celebrity center in hollywood. I don't know how i got booked on this thing. But hey if you come to this and they were actually pretty fun shows and after like the second or third time i did it would always go really well and they. This guy comes up to me. He goes hey. You wanna take a tour of our building and he was to romy around the billions was like so nice. It's really nice. I didn't really get into scientology or anything. But did you get your seton counted or whenever they do. No yeah no. It seems like a nice place. That's all i could get from videos. Hey do you wanna come. And maybe talk about joining. And i go okay and it was cool. He's like he let me go. You know i didn't nothing. He didn't kidnap. Oh wow that's awesome. So we you into cal poly did you. Were you studying engineering or something or math snow. And this is my connection to george. I studied journalism. That's george was that your major no ended up doing it late classic to in it. Yeah but yeah. I didn't i didn't do a major in it. Yeah one of the like segue but one of the like kookiest parts of that. This pop is the is the scientists guy. The guy who invented auto tune dr. Andy oh yeah. Remember what he's like walking and he tries to grab his wife's hand and she lobby he did not want to be. I actually saw i actually. That's weird that we both noticed that she was just like he's just like kind of like reaches for it and she kind of just walked ahead of you say. Why don't you walk with your girlfriend's doctor. Andy what did they show. That was the funniest toys. That's like look. He really is so honest. Autism we were at a luncheon with my distributor and his wife issue is a singer and she said andy. Why don't you make me a box. That would have me singing ten. And i knew pretty much how to do it right away. Technically because a lot of the work identity related physicians so after the luncheon i went straight to my desk and wrote a lot of equations and saul some gnarly mathematical problems to make the computing feasible. I had this author imperfectly. As i think i'll call oddity and that's exactly what came out for months later. There is a a huge need in recording industry for a singers to be in tune to before the thing is we have to spend a lot of time in the studio and the only technology means they had were very difficult to use. Where'd you start doing. stand up. Eric was actually at cal. Poly like open mic cal poly. Yeah i know. I created my own shows and image in the dorms. Put on shows. I had everybody sign up to do. Their talent is a talent show. That was the host Yeah i would do like set at the beginning in between everybody. I do some stuff and then at the end i'd have a longer set. So is this something like the you knew you wanted to do is a kid. Like hip hop turntable. Ism comedy. well it kind of like the comedy. Part of it was always a big comedy fan and i would recite other comedians material to my friends and they kept saying. You're so funny you should do stand up. You know. And i believed him. I'd always like. Hey i wanna try doing. Stand up sometime in ryan. I was on a family vacation. They had a talent show on the crews. That were you're on. And i tried it of my. My dad helped me write some material. I didn't have any material mmg. Or i'll help you write something. What do you wanna talk about your dad. Okay we start. Yeah that's awesome. And so i tried it and i got. I didn't basically like three bits. The first one went well the second one bombed and then third one went what age nineteen. Okay you didn't get no love for the second year. Nineteen they weren't going to be like we'll just laugh anyways. No is bad. It was like i made a cancer. Joke stu i learned quickly building mine. Don't has cancer section in his bit It was like stupid. Yeah that's that's tough. Yeah so what beastie. Boys rena the beach boys. Yeah of course. Yeah beastie boys run dmc. My favorite group had to be a tribe called quest. Sure my favorite group Favorite hip hop group and Yeah there's so many. I kind of lost touch with a lot of the newer hip hop is just so big. Now i still still into it but there's just so much out there now there is a ton out there for sure you know it's interesting you talking about like doing other comedians. When you're not a comedian yet and you're you're you love it. You have a tendency to memorize your favorite comedians jokes and then doom for your friends. So mine was jake johannesen. Who i don't know if know. Yes but i loved jake john. I was a huge letterman fan. In jake was always unseen with robin williams was always on letterman. I thought jake johannesson was the funniest fucking person ever man. So i like memorize all of his jokes and barry crimmins which and they're very different people. But i love barry crimmins as well and like i would just do jake johannesen jokes. Everybody and then you know people like you're so funny i'd be like yeah in his drink. Two hundred you know might have come from jake's around but you would think it is. There's you're delivering the joke the right way. So there's something to be said for that the for it and breaks whole like thing Used to crack me. I actually got to one of my first hosting weekends. Ever at the punchline is with jay johnson. i got to tell them the story. It'd be like that's amazing. I use the do. You're my guy. The guy i would take do for my friends. Your jokes you know. I think most comedians had that well any artist. The first phase of becoming an artist is imitation. Yep so it's totally normal. Talks to the to the voter. Yeah yeah right. Was there anything about this. Dr surprise you. Were you like something you didn't know about. T. pain or something. You didn't know about like auto tune or the sure thing like even just as an as an artist. Why would you talk to another artist that way. It just jealousy. Maybe there's a way to say it if you're upset about something that somebody's doing there's a way to say that's not so destructive to somebody that's just that's the way if if What t pain is said is true the way they he said that has like no that. There's no no grayson that it's ironic. That usher doesn't have customer service skills or anything you know why. I sure 'cause you know guiding someone to the season asher it's yeah i i've ripping us one because i was hoping that's literally what i do. Do you want to hear my undertaker comments. No oh please. Don't let this be. No but i know people are confused right now. It's got to be explained. Don't lead this into that. That is. I was surprised by a lot of this. I didn't even know. I actually watched his tiny desk series which i love tiny good right. Oh oh you know what did what did surprise me about that. I don't know if this is in the documentary. If i watched this after that. He said he was really nervous when he did that. I wouldn't make contact with the audience. Yes and he was looking at the floor and he was really nervous and thought he thought he was fucking up. Like yeah and to us. You would never think that no in all this. Every time i see someone who's super successful who's super talented. And they speak like that where they say. I'm nervous i'm shy. I don't know what i'm doing. I have imposter syndrome. I don't know if anyone's going to like this. I'm like oh they go through this to like. Yeah i really success actually go through that like. I didn't know that i just figured there super confident. And that's why they're successful. You know exactly i. That's exactly because. I think those thoughts when i when i think i'm doing bad. You just got to realize like the crowd does not realize that right they. Don't you know what. I mean absolutely. Yeah that's a. That's a crazy lesson from that. And i was. I really liked this. I'm glad you brought this to us. Because i didn't know anything about any of this subject matter. I didn't even realize auto tune was like a software that was hidden from the from the public for years. Yeah that was interesting right. They didn't want people to know that singers were getting away with it. Yeah i love t pain story about getting all those like cracked. Dvd's of software and going through each of them He was basically like. That's what dj's due to find samples right but he was doing that with software. That's who is digging in crates glamour. Those days of early napster and torrent teen and getting cracked versions of of like mac. Os stuff and you know that stuff. That was super fun. I actually really enjoyed it. I liked the relationship between pain and his wife. I thought that was a nice moment to. And it's what did she heard sort of being of mixed parentage with being like. Oh you've had caterers my whole life. You just have to like power through these haters. Yeah that was all. She seemed awesome. Yeah that was. That was so cool. Man so eric.

"They eat sometimes. you'll work with headliner. Who's like really awesome right. And then you work with some headliners. That are just kinda like. I don't really give a shit about watching you like. I just want to sit here and do whatever And then go up and do my time and then not shake your hand when i walk out. You know so But they were just like they're like wine and all these people lined up to take their photos and they took time with all of them. And you know. They were reposting all their instagram. Snowflake like from the outline. I mean it was just good. It was nice to see like real. Genuine comics an performers. I think anymore that if you were looking for a high brow fancy smart regal podcast with post that love to talk about horseriding badminton and trips to the venue. You're in the wrong place. This is amigos. pc if you're looking for drinking random nonsense stunts shenanigans and balls out craziness. You hit the jackpot. Is he goes. Pc and this is scott and mark migos podcast. Welcome everybody back. Today's guest is a failed skydiver motivational speaker stair climber husband father and phoenix comedian steve short bus krause for calling disney customer service. Seen a the vaccine guys our how you doing. Thanks for coming on As we're kind of talking off line. I met you at the trailer. Trash tammy Shows just the sweat like past week week and a half so and you were the only surprisingly hugh joke opening up which was a hit. I think it was more a shock till like half the crowd and then the crowd that maybe like actually knew you or or you know your stand-up we're laughing. Because i was dying you came up my wife sitting next to me. She's like is that him is hilarious. No it's fine. It's fun to do it for the people who weren't there. I actually went up with a mask on. And i just started punching myself in the face like trying to get my mask off and then made it into the bagel long thing and like it was like the most late late when i'm normally trying to tie my shoes kind of thing you know it was. It was tough struggle. And so once i got it off then i yelled at lake. Don't get the vaccine and look for half me. And i just let it sit. You know. I just let the people like you said like half of them are like holy shiite leagues. Do gonna talk like this all night. Like how long's he no. And you see okay. I think he likes leading You know i do it. I do it mainly one because it's funny You know some people. Ask me like well at the end you say. I'm sorry i'm not retarded and do people get mad when you say that. And i gotta remind people you think i'm disabled. I can say that shit right like you. All walkers can okay and and there was one time. I did that job and at the end of this lady came up to me. She tapped me on the shoulder and she she was like. Hey i wanna introduce us some friends of mine. And i'll make sure no problem if she moved away and there was like twelve mentally disabled people there and i thought shit this is how i'm gonna die right 'cause like i was literally up their acting retarded. I said retarded right. And i was kind of an awe that there was twelve of them and only one person watching them. Because you know you never know those guys are going to snap in league. But i mean they loved it. They loved it. I was like they were like they felt like i included. You know and i was like signing their fries grocery receipts and all that stuff. I mean grave one of my favorite memories but the other reason do it is because when i on stage and i am in a wheelchair and i i'm already at a disadvantage at the time that somebody sees me right. Any comedy goes on stage. The second they walk behind the curtain or out the door. They're already been charged. You know people who's this asshole was he gonna tell me that's funny that hurdle ready and but being disabled it takes it to another level because you know people's minds it's like like you said. Is this guy got talk like this. Like what the hell's wrong with this guy. Like is he just gonna tell like shitty handicap jokes. Strap in of. But i do because i am trying to that right away right so then that kind of breaks the ice. You know in a weird twisted fucking way. It breaks the ice but it also lets people know. Hey i'm cool with being able. I don't feel sorry for myself. You know so you should either so to options like you sit there and enjoy the ride or user god precious given legs walk the fuck out usually stay in a joy to ride. So but yeah. That's why i really do. And plus looking at people's faces is really. It's hull larry. If i think next time i do it. I'm gonna somehow record what i see there. Because there's a lot of you know. And then there's a lotta guys tap. Their funds like holy. Shit is if midget can't wait to tell bob at work tomorrow. Yeah kind of stuff. So but it's fun. I you made mention that you know when people come out and they're like well. What do we expect being in the audience Seeing you do that up at a stand up live where we were. You could feel bad like sitting next to me around. Like i know you so when i didn't even know you were going to be opening so having that treat come out. I was excited. Yeah everyone around like his happening right. And what's funny is. Because when i'm outside before shows there will be people i've seen me before and they'll start too late. Try and talk to me. But then they remember that opening joke and so they won't tell their friends and so they'll just sit there and they'll just watch friends during the whole opening part and normally would do. I would actually be a couple of jokes lake that and and then hit him with it. But with the vaccine thing i was just like this is gold right just hit them with one hard and then y- and and it was it was it was fine. You could feel it. And i was the first time i did it because i'd never worked with danny before chelsea land i i had never met her So you know. I've seen a couple of the videos and things like that That she had done before. And when i noticed a lot of women coming to the show like that older amid as late kind of that that range out sometimes they don't like it. There's there's always wind always one this guy. Yeah yeah fine. I'm glad everybody gets like a kick. Have you ever had a situation where someone walked out or super offended or like crazy and mike was like. You're too much kind of yeah. They're usually like special. Ed teachers like that. Come to show and you know so the you know you get you get one or the other. One of them is like the one. The people i love talking to after shows are the parents of people at disabled kits right. You know parents at half disabled kids because a lot of them are you know. New parents have never had a disability in their family. You're just dealing with it and to the one common i always get is that you know. It's great to see that even though you're disabled you still get up there and you still have fun and you still do what you do And then you get the special. Ed teachers that right. I have not tested to my class. You're told a joke about you. Know like what's his name. Gary know him so that one you know to them. I don't talk to. Yeah but i have had some people get upset and it's rightfully so but i mean it's it's they can feel however they want but i'm not going to change i am. I'm still going to do the shit. And i did cancel you canceled but whatever like i just wanna stay true to who i am. You're a wheeling fast passed so they changed that they changed that some years. Some guy in florida was renting himself out to families and was just going to disneyland. They would pay him like five hundred bucks today and he would go and cut them online and then just like yesterday your family with white. And now they're indian or whatever and is lake yes so they ended up getting busted so they ended up changing the whole fast. Pass thing for you know. Disabled people and We actually went to disneyland right before cove and happened. because my ramp daughter. I have a ramp kids. We all say the words step in my house. Kinda let that sink in now and takes a minute for people But no she was doing a dance. Her dance group Got chosen dancer. So we went out and it was literally like colby just died. And you know and then Cova was coming around and you only saw like one or two people wearing a mask you know at disney and news just like you would see all the lines and i remember because i can't ride all the rides you know and I remember sitting there waiting for my family. They were all in like pires care. Being in the line was like half a mile. And hey. I didn't have my phone because i would take a picture of. And then like somebody in this lines got coded not you know. Just people walking around shoulder shoulder and then a week later that changed and Ship just waited. We re just say five grand for before we were talking earlier saying that the most happiest place. I mean when you have kids like when you take kids with you. It's just such an expensive fun time. Yeah yeah i mean it really is and then yeah i mean. There's so many people. Because i used to live in california and i remember going as a kid and i never remember having like stand in line for an hour and a half to get on dumbo right. Now it's just ridiculous and then you people just running around. They get the stupid fast passes and run into people and stuff. We wrote a mountain. Two minutes bro. You're universal studios. Still here he ain't got fucking make but yeah cutting lines coal spun. You all can't get away with so before you talked about We were talking about Opening up with tammy and we've been avid. kpd listeners. Since i can remember in that's where we first heard of you recently coming on key. Pd telling your jokes know. Interacting with the show and things like that And even then back when we first started. I'm talking to usa decade. Maybe you were still your opening for larger clubs. I think stand up live. Just maybe it opened or or been opened a couple of years. Honestly you know doing like a feature or a headline something along those lines. How does that process work. When when you have a bigger name like tammy come into town and is it just like you have a bat phone or or. I wish i'd be rich. I wanna be living in a trailer park right now. If i had a i had a bad shit. You know. I i when i first started and i been doing about fifteen years when i first started. It was through comedy class. I was studying a district comedy class. And then through that. At that time the only real club was like the baked club was the improv. And before i started doing comedy. I would go and see comics. And that's where the the extra push to like. I literally remember watching jim. Breuer just destroy the room and sitting there. And and i'm like man. I want wanna do that one day. You know. I think the pulse to do it. Why not can't feel them anyways. Let's let's do it in kicked in the nuts right in so That's just a few billion times right But then it was the whole goal listed performance improv. So then i ended up by jusuf chance. I mean i would. I would go and hang out at the club. I would do some comedy contests and dan murder. At the time of the honor he would see me and then went to a phone. Call that you know. I got to open for the very first time in. It like happened to be russell. Peters and you know it was the first who's russell peters i just get It was really cool. You know i mean it was and pure. I mean that the one time the guy gets open for now lake the on one of my closest friends you know. I asked him to be my daughter's godfather. You know like so then then it was kind of hanging out at the club a little more and meeting some of the headliners. The one that really kind of broke up me with pablo I had met Francisco had met him and he was. You know coming in yearly. I mean russell was so bad. It was just like a random once every other year and so i had met pablo and he just said. Hey you wanna do guess spot. I'll wake up and did a guest spot. And then he's like you're going to do every show and so i ended up doing the entire weekend and then became close with him. And then once you once. He's working with russell. And you're working with pablo and you're doing things. Run tiny sir kind of building some light credibility and the club would be like okay. You know Yeah we know he can hold his own the headliners like crowds. Like um so then it just kind of what's started grown from that But Like the tammy weekend i Met coleman. he's one of the book. He's the main booker for the providence and apply than every now and then i'll send him an email saying hey you know if you got anything open and i actually found out the day before that i was gonna open for her and You know it was awesome. I had the same feeling opening for her. And this is no bullshit right. Noble shit. I had the same feeling opening for her that i did for russell when i first started i mean because her crowds were they were like crazy and raucous but they're respectful right. There's like a huge difference because a lot of them are youtube fans. I mean people were coming in from kansas like an watching every show the entire weekend you know and there were people that were coming night after night but you know they were. They were polite. I mean people standing on line. You don't like way down to the to the end and no one was complaining. And i mean it was just. It was a different type of crowd you know and they were great and I mean i got a lot of instagram followers now. Then i'm like shit instagram. Masking my ramp boy. How do i do a story. Like do i post this here. I don't know you know. Yeah you got it now girl. I got to ramp. Boys finally got it. he ramped up a guy. There's hope there's hope but they were. They were awesome. They were unbelievable. I never had that many all the years of doing comedy after because every now and then you'd meet people after the shows like they might buy some merchandise. Y'all follow you or at they never go. You know and it's cold. It's whatever you're drunk on our you know and that's why not famous people I'm kidding Please please by. But yeah i mean you have to of get out of here. No what. I'm going through right now. I don't know if you guys need disneyland. Put the happiest place on earth as my background to hide the not so happiest place behind it. Okay But you know they're a great crowd and like you know Tina libya were unbelievable. The i've never done a show which is like three right. And i thought they've been doing comedy for ever. I mean they were just like real natural. They're real funny. You know and and then like the the second night. I was to me and i was just like. She's like yes. I how long have you been doing this shiels three. I three years now three weekends. What i like. I've been doing this the years right. And i'm the most seasoned person in here i mean but the one thing i loved about them or who they are as people. And that's what i was referring to earlier before we get sidetrack with the horrors behind me. The the Unbelievably nice people. they eat. Sometimes you'll work at the headliner. Who's like really awesome right. And then you'll work with some headliners that are just kinda like i don't really give a shit about watching you like. I just want to sit here and do whatever and then go up and do my time and then not shake your hand when i walk out. You know so But they were just like stood there in late wine all these people lined up to take their photos and they took time with all of them you know. They were reposting all their instagram snowflake from the outline. I mean it was good. It was nice to see like real genuine comics and performers. I think anymore definitely agree. We we did the mean all out with The night that we went and yes she was taking pictures. Not what. I was expecting which is amazing And i don't really follower Or like no a lot of the content of what the wife tells me. Yeah as soon as i saw her on stage. She's doing her trailer chassis. Tammy stuff you could tell nine when before. And after right and they estimated that they were like why. Aren't you out there. Then meet and greets. This is why people you don't wanna shake that shit even had the et finger half handshake right choice. I hate me. Like i love the people but it's just gets awkward. It's awkward people come up and try and do this like going to like pound my fist. you know. And then they'll see my hands and then they'll halfway stop and then i'm like swinging atom. You know this bump and then you'll get the people that'll go in for the handshake and then c. e. t. fingers and shit this guy. So yeah yeah. They were great great. I'm like yeah me too great. I don't mind. I don't mind it. It's a lot different though. I think for me the gig. I think it's a little different for me now. because i'm sober So a lot of a lot of times. I would have the show is. I was drinking like a fish to party with everybody. And then after the show you know you just have to draw assholes in the lobby talking about what bar we're going to. You know what i mean and so now it's just it's an i like that of a fine nounce over fucking responsible and i got a job a house honey now. It's just kind of weird because you'll get those drunk. People have come to me after the shows and just want like you know. They don't really offer me drink anymore. They used to. But i never go when i was so when a surrogate sober. I just me five bucks. My client and they'd be like no. I don't have any cash. There's an atm right. There man offered to buy me twelve dollars shot. Gimme five so.

I guess it's not what what i was playing when i was a kid essentially. Yeah now i mean with my hands. I wasn't playing legos. Lincoln logs blocks none of that shit right. So it's like now you want me to put a bunch of boxes together and put a flower pot on them So what.

I'm not trying to put myself in that. So i went on twitch right and i created as pate and creating a name for your twitches like harder than naming your first four kit okay like it really is so so like me being the down answer i am. I came up with i. Yeah a coffee. Sucks right to something so stupid. And so i was wanting to see what other lake call. Twitter's know what they're called like coped twit castors.

It's actually like china. Build it up right. Yeah 'cause off. People move from california is a desert flames there strip club notion. He's looking around. You don't know it must be. Yeah that's funny. You mentioned that place though so long. It's been like fifteen years than there. You went there. I did a win and let's just say it was a wednesday which is probably a saturday. Hold for the that place to but it was greatest. Fa hooters just glitter and failure is what desert flame as a true. There is no eight group. Work constitute constitutes eight crew of teeth. A fico score whatever may just right three hundred scores. Sat scores on to med school. They have to be able to know their their real name. Not stage name right right. That could be right. Candy told me with an i. Not a y. Yeah yeah. I remember one time. Mcc and i was going from the class of girl was walking by and hot and Some guy was walking by and say hey sapphire. She's like looking like this. And i'm like smell. I slow down my wheelchair. Because i want to know like sapphire south of sapphire and so then. He's like yes sapphire right from league girls and and her boyfriend or some dude as her i. I don't think it was her boyfriend with some guy so fucking embarrassed and she tried to play off right and then she kept walking and the guy was like. Fuck you on buying you drink. Next time i was just like he. s tried. yeah at first. she's doing. She's putting herself through college. She's literally doing what. God bless her. Her lake had vegas one time. And i i just got there with my buddy and we're checking in and i was playing this like wheel of fortune type game right and like like the thing took off right in this role locked up to me. She's like oh my god you just want a bunch of money and i was like your fucking right one money. I just wanted thirty five dollars. That's like half a buffet right and You wanna have some fun house lake. I'm already have fun right about the see david copperfield and she has nine means naked. Fun right and then. I was like you know then i had thought you know. 'cause girls probably in about maybe like two fifty right and lake. Wheelchairs got like a weight limit on it. And i'm not making fun of her. There's literally if you get under my wheelchair. The tag has fucking weight landed on it. Okay and then. I was like you know. They charged by the hour. Only got thirty five dollars. Take me like forty five minutes to get my pants off. You know And so i was just like now. You know what better idea. I got an extra tickets. They copperfield go. Check them out. We'll see if he can make about fifty pounds disappear off your ass mental talk and it was horrible horrible thing to say and but i think that she probably realized that her life was so far down in the dumps and that she was probably a horrible horrible hooker that she had asked a guy in a wheelchair you know as her last resort like nobody else right like all right did bucket list right like let's go back guy and then it also. I'm hoping that you know. She went to like an aa meetings. She got clean jam. She's probably in med school now. So maybe i saved their lives matter at mcc. No no dinner vegas. He's he turned alive. I to mcc. Yeah wow yeah maybe maybe you turn around and also. That's what i'm here doing. Yeah everyone listening. I'm here here to motivate you stick. Tiered dream don't give in. Don't give out settle so there are a few questions that we've storming up on things we want to ask on our show. And if you don't mind being a guinea pig for some of this i yes. They are asking some of these questions. Rhino rate number. Yes or no some are depending on how you want to get by. Elect and things like that The first i think we kind of already covered this But what. What is your favorite adult site. He's got the ramp people you know. I'm gonna pass gonna have to say i'm just thinking favorite site shit about them in my life. There's no hope you know. Honestly i i. And this is god's honest truth and there's nobody else around right now like i don't watch a lotta part. I mean i don't like. I remember back in the day when the kid and you know they had like the borderie lines and you tried to like boob or something you know you got excited and shit like that And then i actually knew some friends were on that like couch casting one backer cows casting so that was really fucking shit girls or the is no girl. Yeah the originals. You know some of the original ones right. yeah so That was kinda fucking awkward. Yeah no and how they have a friend just you know. Hey were saturday. Dick on a camera. Like twelve hundred bucks never going to go anywhere. No one will ever see. It is just wait till i pass this around the bar. Gay people will. Yeah i i really don't honestly on i really don't Every now and then like you know. The fucking game of thrones on you know yeah shit there you go. Hbo whatever whatever. Hbo and skin amax have on this next question We have a running it on the show. We've been around a couple of years and before we started really implementing guests on the show. We started to making fun of some conspiracies one conspiracy out. There is a is australia real A couple of episodes. We did have a couple of people from australia on similar this video conferencing and we literally ask them that question. If australia israel yes and and basic their thoughts yeah. So they're surprise you know they're they're what answers. I guess what was a little off key but if the flatter conspiracy is true. Do you think that australia is a real place. You've kind of got to think it through right. You gotta flying a plane for eighteen hours at some point. You're gonna fall asleep. Do you really go to australia. That was good. That was a good witness at that. Uh else do you go shit. I dunno argentina. I mean okay. Because like you could fake you. Fake the mon right you could. You could fake que. Get that right. But how are you gonna fake. It's got to be real real conned. This is all fake. It's gotta be to a little bit. Because maybe i'm just thinking how could you logistically get millions of people and buildings in one place and then just be like. Hey we're fucker ten p. Yeah yeah pretend time to be australian. Here's you know. When short bus comes to town you know like so then. Okay so then then you gotta ask yourself who them in world war or soldiers over there. I know that that is a brady. We haven't heard an answer that way re to us that way you like. No it's fake or it's not from from a non person who says they live there. It's always been my dream to go to australia. May but yeah. I wanna go to in bateman cam front payments from australia sore. Now you just mentioned The moon and faking landing on the moon to this is going to be a weird segue. I guess but If you had the opportunity which if you must has his way it seems like it's going to be sooner than later you. It was just you. You got one ticket. Would you take a one way trip to mars. Not even after finish like why would be like hell. Yeah like. i'm out of here bro. Like because you got to think about this way to say now not only. Am i the first disabled person space. The first crippled on mars. So if i get to mars. I right and the martians are actually. They're they're going to think that all humans are crippled and then i could be like how half lucky walkers we won and then i talked the martians and the taken over you asshole. Nice is still there. You would want to be in the first flight there. Because i'm wondering if there's not convenient rams it's going to be a shitty terrain for you. I'm to be stuck. I'm gonna die like the one you got to have rover. Yeah yeah right. Exactly you know or one of like like hella pack or something. Yeah yeah yes. Yeah just just going That make sense yes to. I'm so down like even tweeted. Ilan months earlier before this that he put that neuralink thing in the monkey right and it was playing along with its brain that yet they had. He's got a company called neuralink right and they've put a chip in a pig's brain and it was predicting it's movements before move and then he just put a chip in a monkey's brain that they're playing pong right with his brain and he's moving the screen and then he like Tweeted something about neuralink will be putting people with paralysis. And they'll be able to text faster than somebody using their hand with their mind. And i tweeted back. I call bullshit. Let me try me. Please send. Maybe i put that shit in like my head. Make my legs work so far. The flame does pass the flame. Bro yeah right now. I mean we did talk about you know the australia. Being one of our conspiracies you have a favorite conspiracy. You like to ponder on or talk about or anything like that he you know. I think the one in. I mean i don't know if much conspiracy anymore because starting to come out bright because i mean i'm just saying it's starting to come out like the whole lake. You know extraterrestrials alien you know. It's like now lake now. You know guys. I grew up like super religious right like in a bible church like church every sunday. You know christian schools probably wind so far up right now But you know you're taught like create everything right and you know have arson everything like that. And i'm not saying he did it. But there's some things where you just kind of like. Oh could they have done this right like if it wasn't for extraterrestrial. I mean it. Just like how i the. There's gotta be some kind of intervention whether that he divine or not. There were some type of intervention. That is not manmade. Yeah yeah i mean it's like you look at some of the And that's probably another reason. Why so messed up from the pandemic watch a lot of ancient aliens but you know you watch it and then i started watching other shit. I'm glad ain't go down like the giant conspiracy rabbit hole. There's a couple of things whereas just kind of like i. I kind of like the troll. People a little bit with them. You know the ski. Like the bob alinsky thing that came out. But he has proof you. He's got these tests messages. Yeah just kind of like just massimo people but yeah that whole q. Non so so. Take off of that question. Do you think it's weird though. It's now that the government's now trying to say that your photos are they're coming out and saying like oh yeah we've seen things like putting reports it's almost making a more like almost legit. They're setting it up. Yeah they're setting it up. Can't yeah yeah. They couldn't do. they couldn't do it. I mean they could get away with it back. When before social media and the internet right before social made in internet you might see like a newspaper story or something or have three days yes. I'm crazy drunk. Uncle saudi saw you know a ufo. And your ira uncle buzzes drunk again. But now social media and everything. But you know you on my skype. I was listening to when he was talking about it. He was kinda like kinda crazy. How lake with the cameras that we have and cell phones like all. The pictures of your photos are still shed the radar. So that's that's kinda that's kind of weird so like you think about like that but then you know. Now it's got internet. He got social media. You got the shows that you know. People are hooked on to combat that argument about the cell phones. How come when. I see we have a super moon or a blue moon or red moon or whatever moon is out there it's gigantic in my peripheral. But when i go to take my own it is still shit. Oh did they really make phone cameras. Better marks marksman it apple. Somebody forgot his password. Yes yeah. I have no dude. You're asking the wrong guy. This christ feet. High everything in my peripheral. Yeah out now. How could you imagine if i was though. I ask you to imagine that survey. Yeah like take my cherie after the call was like honey there's no button for a of understand what the fuck was saying. Like what do i do give us. I send them back to the indian guy. Yeah back to the city saying no but god bless. God bless handicapped. People they get out there and do jobs. So i'm not but i mean i. I think if. I did it that way i would. I would try and make it through a whole call. I don't think i could. I would probably like that. That actually brings me to my next question good. We're off the whole peripheral. What's right if you weren't doing comedy right now Eat or your. Your career was comedy. You what do you think would be the alternate. What's the alternate universe short bus doing eight that like growing up. Like what am i going to do. You know because. I mean it's not like be a a roofer you know or fucking lift shit at home depot you know So those kind of trying to think of. What would i be good at right. How could i make a living. So i can be independent. You know and then i. I'd always toss out like you know. Wanna be a lawyer you know. Conveyed love arguing. I love like finding lies and people. You know what i mean like. I love finding that shit and I love movies like that so that was one of them like i actually went to as you for a radio and tv broadcasting so i kind of wanted to do radio you know with like mike holmberg and those guys and then or on. Tv you know like sports you know. We're just being a disabled anchor. I like the dumbest thing ever And then one time. I wanted to be a kicking coach. I literally ask coach now. I literally asked an ac football coach. I was like. I probably like eight or nine right. We have one of those comedy. Yeah yeah pretty much. But but i was like i was like eight or nine and i used to go back to where like the players will come out after the games and like at autographs and stuff like that. So i kinda see the coaches every week and talk to them and they talk to me and So i remember one time i. I'm going to ask if i could be. I disabled kicking coach right. Give like i can't do anything else right with my life and work either so i just looked at me. Like yeah share buddy. Follow your dreams you reach for the stars who is sorry about that Get your arms up. I would and then you would like show like how you should kick. Yes then my chair you know. I got a plan. That's going to help every kicker be the best. I'm gonna tyler waits to their legs. Make too stupid. You know. But i think i think like motivational speaking like that. I like speaking For like eight meetings Just like i love being on stage you know. I think a lot of people thought. I was gonna follow like my dad. And my brother's footsteps become like a pastor and have church stuff like that. And it's probably what i should have done. It probably helped a lot. More people. That wasn't my path. And so i think if i can help people like in some way or another. Then that's i'd be happy. I mean i've had a lot of great experiences in high school. i started. I was working for their on a cardinals for five years. Those kind of like cool. This is great. I'm working in sports. So i've experienced that and i. It had the moments yet teaching them how to kick shipman field goals. Yeah right yeah. That's good now utah. You just mentioned You spill your. You have spoken in front of aa meetings. And things like that. And i don't know if this might be a little touch your or not just depending if you don't wanna talk about it feel free to just tell me to shut up. Yeah the last time that we heard you on k. Up it seemed like there was something going on right in in essentially they had gotten you off the air when you showed up that trigger going day and things like that or like. Have you been going for a while or key. Give us more details. Yeah you know for a while. I was i was really embarrassed about it I think it was more of just. A kind of for people are listening. Who don't know me So for a long long time. I was battling severe depression. I was he'll it was almost like i was using my disability. As a crutch to like you know when people would say like oh well you know. He's in a wheelchair. I drank too know like hell. Yeah that means. I can drink and do whatever the hell i want. And you know it's doing comedy and it was like a party every weekend in all and it was traveling a lot and grew and got worse over time. And then you know instead of being the funny disabled comic turning into light drunk disabled comic. And you know so. But at that time i was so far into it that i just didn't care you know it's kind of like i'll do. I'll do it ideal. You know you all worry about yourself you know but then the ones that are picking me up. Put me back my chair and you know so it was very it was very hard. You know the the depression and things just grew. And you know at the time My fiance and i To preface it I my whole life. Being able. All i wanted was to have a family. I like i remember like telling my mom as a kid growing up like we would pray it. I like that. I would meet someone be able to have kids of my own because i just wanted to be a normal person and when i got into college i realize that shit wasn't real. You know like it was a lot of you know waking up you know and realizing that the world doesn't give a shit about you or you're just another disabled person right and it just grew over time the depression and stuff like that and so my fiancee. She was pregnant. And so i was like so excited. I was a happy guy in the world. You know And then unfortunately she miscarried and a we found out was the night before i was supposed to go into the radio to show so we obviously were like very heartbroken You know. I was drinking heavily all night. I you know. i should've stayed home. But you know when you when you think you're functioning alcoholic out a functioning alcoholic right now when you trick yourself to think. Oh yeah. I can get through. You know this interview and they'll just think i'm wacky or whatever and then you find out you're not So yeah i went in. And i i was dropped and It was on the air and they originally asked me to leave and then hamburg brought me back on And then i think just a lot of the emotions and alcohol and everything just collided You know an item out down. I mean i'm humid. You know. I if feelings too and you know it was. It was wrong of me to go in there and waste their time but in the end it ended up being one of the best things that happened to me Because that night. I mean we're talking like that night. A lot of people know that. Night after that radio show and everything like i literally wrote a note to my fiance. You have permission to kill me with this. Nice right like slipped my throat. I don't care. I'm done right And so thank god. She'd been it But yeah i. I went to rehab that night. I went to the hospital that night and got a clean and sober. And you know And you don't just stains right you know and it's but yeah i mean We actually went back on about a year after six months or so Both me and her went on You know we talked about it addressed this you know and i love those guys a daffy you know. I mean in in a sick twisted fuck and like i say my life. I'll never tell him that. So edit the shit out. I'm joke tensions. I've been fight. I had been. I've been fighting for a long time. And that was like the second time abby connery before that and then relapse that's when all that stuff happens you know. So i mean did sometimes your worst moments and being the best moments of your life in the end looking back I wanted change anything I let it change anything so that's that's basically what happened and so i i'm thankful to them and you know i've gotten a lot of support from his listeners People that i think i could tell truly care about me even though i don't know them I felt like you know. I was a partner there and i wasn't on every day. It was like once every other. You know few months. Or whatever. But i still had people now like you said recognize me or you know of people hear me talk like you short us like do my neighbor next door like shit a kid when he found out who was like it was i swear to god you guys. He literally when i moved in he was talking to mean. He asked me what i do and talking about comedy and the off and then i said yes. He's like a ever listened ulmer in. I listened to them every day and blah blah blah. And i was like. Yeah you know i. I loved that guy. Yeah that's me you lose lake. Swear to god he's like are you hiding from your fans out here. Is that where you grew. That's but no it's it's nice. You know it. It really helped lift me and my top times it either repair. Lada burn bridges but that store story though is very inspiring. It should for those listening in. If they're in a spotlight that he had there is light at the end of the tunnel. He gotta make. Yeah i mean it just got like it to do. I mean you have to. You have to be open to do it because a lot of times. I'll get text messages from people good. I'm i wanna quit. How did she do it. And you know. And then. I asked them the normal questions. Like how much do you drink. How often you drink. You know like you know because there's a friend of mine leg. I'm drinking like ten drinks a day every day. Then i'm like. Hey you wanna quit and go to the hospital. I you know in east. Yeah you know and So then the kind of like yeah. Well i'll i'll. I'll think about it and you know i'll ask them. I'll be like are you drunk right now. you know. that's the main thing i asked. Are you drunk right now because we always want to quit drunk like when when we just made an ass out of ourselves at the bar got kicked out you know we all want to quit. Where's the meeting it's my neighbor. China quit He goes to aaa the chips right. He does but he still drinks. Yeah yeah he's trying to build smoker collection. Is i don't know. I don't know In that program helps a lot of people you know. I some people like either. They think it's too religious or or whatever you know for me. It's it's almost like therapy. You know we. I can go in there and i mean shit. It's not like people are gonna know who i am if they know me. It's not like it can go on a different wheelchair. Somebody's like over there. It's a different chair. well you know. It's funny when i was in alcoholics and i always watch like intervention right. Oh but then the instead of being like. I don't want to go down that way. I was more like that really drinking motor oil yet. You know. I think that out of alcoholic. Yeah yeah nc tyzzer now You can right right so Oh yeah i would always think like. I'm not that bad but the are and it's when i realized it was just destroying my family. You know and losing the the thing. I love doing most which is performing you know like i. I gotta get i mean. I was almost dead like fifty. Enzymes away from psoriasis. Like i was literally on that line where they relate you drink again era that right so that doesn't wake you up then at bottle lotto ticket. Why well. I apologize for derailing the fun times so it's good now i wanna talk about. I mean i. I love talking about this because it's not a lot of people get a lot of people get. I think the think of me in different way because the fake. It's almost like they're expecting you to be on all the time right like i'll get asked to do a podcast there. They'll think i'm coming in doing this. Wacky bullshit and then i'll i'll just be like. Hey let's talk about real shift. You know i mean why. Mental health isn't being addressed especially in the comedian. Like world. i now. I mean you were all assholes i mean seriously i mean the reason we do comedy is 'cause we either hate our lives or we're fucked up in the head right. Yeah and you take that away from comics like taking away people's heroin you know you're taking away people's drugs and i've seen a lot of comics crack. You know you saw guys who were owed being and you know committing suicide and things like that and why people aren't really speaking out about it and just pretending like it's not. They're pretty sad to be honest. It's pretty sad. Because last thing i want to see is one of my good friends. Die because you know nobody offered to help or they just expected them to be just home. Funny all the time. But i mean i think it's i don't think people i think because they see us on stage for like fifteen minutes and that's all they see an no offense but the news just i. I don't mean. I don't mean to to stop the conversation that great conversation that we're having actually this entire thing has been a great time. Was that We gotta start wrapping up with the show short bus.

S2:E57 That One Time I Slept on Vince Vaughns Couch

"From eleven second. And we're live. This is the captain's log with on Manam. Ed, thanks buddy on the show. Thanks for having me all the way from Malaysia. Yes. That must be amazing. So you could scroll down and do that little side now share. Yeah. Yeah. When you're done with Hoppy dance. So it's a good time. I appreciate you reaching out to me all the way from Malaysia share when yet you hit the share button. And then you could show your people that you're actually in the US, right? Yes. Because you've been in Malaysia for three years a year here. I moved to Malaysia January last year January feels like three years. It does kind of a kind of like I got stuck in time. When I moved to Asia is that because things move differently out there or. Well, it's a little bit of a slower. Culture. It is you know, things. Just don't what about this -nology technology is just the it's the same. I just think because it's you have to remember. It's also very hot and humid country. Yeah. So people. Tend to not want to work as. Just because it's so hot like, you think Florida's hot and humid. What's the average? And on any given day like you might have to talk a little louder. We're not might. Oh, hi. Can you hear me everybody? Yes. On any given day in Malaysia it can get up to one hundred degrees. And then hundred is humid right hundred percent humidity. So you you're just walk outside. Yes. Instantly instantly, and and which sucks because then you have to go to a place where you have to look presentable, dripping sweat, right, right? Good news as they have air conditioning everywhere to go series. So it's not like you're in like little rickshaws running around. No, it's not it's not Thailand. It's not bad. It's not it's not. But it's it's like. All everything is the same as we have here left. I mean, Malaysia for many years, it was considered a third world country. Okay. Now, it's being called a developing country and in twenty twenty. Just gonna tag you on twenty twenty. It's going to be. It's going to be announced. This is for the show we last I like the extra show. I did. You could do it. You can't do at the same time. Anyway. So we have to do one of. Oh, and. Mary interesting. I I would I kinda wanna go out there because I did do Hong Kong and China and stuff, but I didn't spend enough time that I got to live the culture and everything else. I think I think you would like they will Malaysia specifically. But as I was mentioning earlier, you know, you have forty five minutes with Singapore. Thailand hour and twenty minutes. Philippines. Cambodia Hong Kong Japan is a six hour flight like all cut right there with a lot of US influence a lot like you can honestly feel like your in Times Square New York City when you're in the downtown part of Kuala emporer. Yes skyscrapers. Nice. Find dining restaurants, Speakeasy bars. You know lounges strip food. There aren't any strip clubs really. But they do have these. Kind of. I don't know what you call them carry karaoke bar. They do have karaoke. I actually felt very little karaoke. You're going on in those bars. No, they have actually to have like, you know, the the proper karaoke rooms when you room and just you and your friends, and like the little sort of box and do they have the little geisha girls come out. We'll some of the nightclubs do they don't have any strip clubs, but they have never been to it. But there's a couple of these places when you like you go in and you like have to buy a woman a rose. And then she'll come and sit on your lap and have a drink. And it's like that kind of thing. I haven't done that. Yeah. But I've I've driven past this is that was when a couple times, but you know, this also. A cat. This exists all over the world. But you know, there's there's quite a bit of prostitution. Okay. Let's not legal. No. I mean, Asia it's kind of all over Asia. You know, they have like their massage parlors, and they're like, whatever dodgy happy ending spots show. But. But no no strip clubs. But great nightlife scene, the company I worked for L O elephants. We. I guess leading comedy events company in Malaysia. And so they've hosted everybody Kevin Hart park ritual. Russell peters. Jeff data and fluffy, and the people know these acts from the internet, obviously. Yeah. So the TV very similar to our TV or is it completely different. So they have local station. It's called Astro the local station does like Malaysia local Malaysia contact so their language there as Bahasa, so they'll speak they'll they'll have a lot of programming that says the Bahasa, but they're trying to cross over into more American content. That's kinda why there will help develop contact creation side of the company film television that kind of thing today like us in the US. Yeah. I mean, you know, there's a lot of US influence in Malaysia. You know? So how you fuller if you're from the US over there they like that. I don't think people really give that much of a shit about it. Okay. What did you like American brands Baidu? So anything anything? That's like that was started in the west that caught on right? We'll take off a militia everything from like closed food up culture music day, just gravitate towards it. They loved them like guns and roses was just there last term. Okay. Like for the third time. Right. And like whatever thought sweet child. Their performance rating to like, they're outdoors and people were just like. Paradise leading. That's fun. That's but you I think you'd love about. It's I do miss my family and friends in in the US, but I'm just taking Asia right now. Full wrote the sue our material try it all this weekend. New material you're forming this weekend and off the hook comedy club. Yes. Get tickets in off the hook comedy dot com. They can find you on Instagram Matt Ahmed Ahmed, it's at a med comedy HMO comedy. That's also my Twitter handle tell me about the first time, you hopped on stage. What was that? Like, how did you know? He wanted to be a comedian. Well, I actually started out as an actor. Okay. I was always funny as a kid cracking jokes to school plays and considered like the class clown in school, and I was ever the guy who would put like attack on the teachers dust or okay chair guy. The prankster. I wasn't the pranks would just a funny. I was just a funny guy in the corner like cracking jokes. Get people to laugh always in the detention room of that. But I never took cancer. You wouldn't say I never took it seriously though. And then like the comedy side of it. And then I grew up watching a lot of light tr- dramatic film. So I was like, you know. Robert deniro Clint Eastwood, Denzel Washington, all these dramatic actors in those where you hear us. They fascinated me because it was like such a great screen presence. And and I was literally living in movie theaters over the days you'd go by ticket for one Mooney. Then you sneak into like ten yeah. Yeah. I'd spend ten hours at the movie three games. Like once in my life. I did it almost every weekend. Just I did it to escape from my house because I didn't like being okay? I had like strict parents probably didn't do it. Because I never had that much time. I was running from one athletic events of the next to the next of the next. I wasn't that actor. Yeah. When I was a kid, but I was active, but I wasn't in sports and stuff. How do I say hiring hiring? He's a comedian right here on news. He raw meat him up. Jennifer Allen with guys what's up. How you doing guys know Naples come to the shows this weekend? Yeah. We got a great show coming your way to tonight tomorrow and one Sunday mother's day mother's day show with them mother's gonna bring your mom hang out with us. So you're telling me so far haven't answered my question. Yeah. So so so the me or you I think together we have. Okay, ADHD. Yes. Thank you. I I I saw just kind of I moved to Hollywood when I was nineteen. I started working as an actor. I played a lot of terrorists. And a lot of movies shocking. Shocking. Yeah. So I was in executive decision where I played terrorists. Number four. I was in. I was in the first ironman movie. Yeah. You I help kickstart the marvel universe. You're welcome. But then they killed right? But that was fun. And then so I just I the problem with Hollywood's Hollywood is that you you don't get a lot of opportunities to to play their parts other than what your stereotype down. Right. Once they cast you can outweigh. That's a unless you are lucky enough to do Damon or. Yeah. Like you write your own ticket? You know, Matt Damon Ben Affleck real good will hunting for an Oscar than they could be whenever you know, you gotta gotta cut getting kissed into the into the pardon. You know, Hollywood. I just never really did. They wanted me to change my name. I didn't want to do it. Anyway, fast forward. I quit acting. I ran out of money I actually slept. Very typical. Very typical. I slow dream Hollywood dream, I slept on mild, buddy. Vince Vonts couch for about a year. He's kind of famous this little famous Republican get hooked up with. Vince Vaughan to sleep on his couch. So we met you can't just jump into that. Well, I met him before he was famous two can't we did our after it will not we I wasn't extra after school special. Ed, he was the co star. Okay. And we met on that thing. And you know, you know, the actor Peter Billingsley, I know the name be that was producer direct. Okay. Right. He was ralphie and Christmas story. Yeah. Yeah. So he produces now he produces all Vince vaughn's movies and runs production company. But he was the star of this after school special at the time Vince played the best friend. It was a story about this young kid nerd and wanted to impress this girl, but she only dated jocks. Right. So he joined the track team, but he was a fast enough. So he took steroids. Okay. And then Vince Vaughn was the friend is like don't do drugs. I'm going to tell the coach and this is an ethical span after school special. I was fixed. They'll do after school specials CBS school breaks special think they call them. I don't know. I remember back in the he's run after school special for that. At age is probably a thirty second clip. That's and they watch six of them in there. Almost like a weather. Right. Right. So then we met all that was an extra one of the guys on the track team when I found out Peter's character took steroids. I kind of like is this meeting up to tell me how the hell he became a comic. So this is how I met some. Yes. So what I I started out as an act because you asked me how I met VIN. Yes. That's how so we've got we met we became friends. I started taking acting classes and the first part of the story be doing all the terrorist parts and all that. Then I got sick of it. I read out of money. Vince offer me his couch yet. At this point. He had that was cool of him. Yeah. He he just done the movie swingers. Yeah. And then he wants to start right after that. And he was traveling around the world, filming moving. So he's like, hey, just stay at my place on on. He's always super nice and supportive such a smart funny. Awesome businessman, and just cool friend and and the nights. I started waiting tables at Kevin Costner's restaurant actually, use own a restaurant called twin palms Pasadena that that must be like that must have been like the cool place. If you're an aspiring actor to work at his place. This was when Kevin Costner was like at the top of his hand. And so he opened this beautiful five hundred seat indoor outdoor country as he had needed a tax break here to touch these heated to lose more money restaurant with his wife. Cindy costs are dead. I was the head waiter there. Okay. Here. I was making a lot of money as a waiter because I was making customer. Of course. And I thought why do I just get rid of the food and just do the funny? And so that's kind of how it all started. I got you know, I made a lot of money as a waiter. I was just like, you know, what let me just try stand up and I did one night. I went up on stage in front of forty comics did open mic and killed. Not typical typical that I bombed for civil ears, right? Because I thought it was so good. I didn't realize oh, this is a craft if take it seriously right jokes. No, you're timing and Kate, and it's nice can aligned every night against the jet that material broad I bombed just the other night at open mic night. None of on accident to those of the comedy in Miami killing every night. Awesome shows. And then I go to open mic on a Monday. Just like just to see what was up and tell me that I ate it. So fast. Felt good. Yeah. Shikha humbling experience ground. What does comics new material? Sometimes that's why you worked on God you got to fail to succeed. Yeah. So so I just I started doing stand up. I got pretty good at it. I started running comedy rooms. Because I couldn't get booked at the major comedy clubs. So I just started. I started this room called Dublin's with a guy named Jay Davis know, Jay. Well, so now he books he's the vice VP of talent at the laugh factory yet. So I started a room in Hollywood and a place called Dublin's never bubbling double. Every Tuesday night, rain or shine. Pain coke? Dave chapelle. Joe rogan? Just Mitzi like because we're right in between the laugh factory already store. So we were the hub for like pool. And we had like celebrities will come every week hot chicks librarians had that title dental factories about just over a year. Okay. And so he's he's the head his book and all the teller lock factory. So we started that room one night who, you know, very, well, paulie shore. Kevin Pauly shore candidate with like five hot playboy playmates, and he was like, Ed. Yeah. Because I've been changed. He's like, hey, why don't you guys come in? He'll say, hey, do you wanna go on stage? And he said sure he went up on stage killed her. He came out. What's up Dougie? What's up talent? What's going on? So Holly goes onstage. He has a great set. He comes off stage. And he's like, why don't you guys come to my mom's club and do a night there? The comedy store it's short. So we did we call the show rock carbon. Okay. Jay hosted. I would throw myself up at the lineup every week. We took the the best of the best from Dublin's and put them on the comedy store was. Sam Tripoli brighter. Sebastian Maniscalco, Grady comics, you know, murders. And then Mitzi shore was in the room one night. And she caught my set and she came up to me afterwards. She said, hey, you're very funny. That's wishy. She talks. Yeah. Hey or very, Honey. I said, thank you said are you are you Arabia? I said Arabic. She goes oh from where I started from Egypt. She goes, oh, you know, we used to be your slaves. She walked away at all. Yeah. Yeah. And then I got a call the next look she wants to make you a paid regular. That's it was like, oh now I worked for you. And so that's all I got to the comedy store. Eventually got at the laugh factory in the providence. Started kind of make my way around the comedy scene. And then I ended up touring the world I got him a sitcom with Steve Byrne, right Vince, Vaughn producer, Peter, villains, Sullivan and son. Then, you know, just kind of made my way around Hollywood for twenty plus years and been turing touring all the comedy comes in the country and all the comedy clubs. I, you know, I'm really lucky to like have to have established some great relationships with with, you know, awesome. People like yourself not everybody wants to book comic through a comic. They wanna go through an age shore manager, and oh shot how many club booker's like you have your agent comb here. You know, it's like, okay. Well, I can I can talk to you. Right. It goes the opposite way to when you reach out to a comic. And they're like, hey talked to play DJ video to jump through. All. Yeah. I guess it goes. So it does go both ways. We'll guys might guess.

The floor is everybody's <hes> he wants. Yeah who's i you. I'm going to talk about a show that came out on august fifteenth. It's called ken busters and it was created by the character designer from boondocks and black dynamite leshan thomas major shoutout <hes> <hes> this anime was made by a black creative westerner and that's a big big deal. He got village anime. It's legit anime business. Begetting western with sci-fi reminiscent of outlaw star just said it was not created to get out but it's it's based off of his two two thousand five comic the same name i was rendered by tokyo animation studio satellite and co-financed by britain's manga entertainment and taiwan's not a holdings wit so he went and now it's on netflix so like i want he got britain. He got it <hes> animated in tokyo and then got it it on netflix fucking accolades saying it's anime pitch. It's man there's actually here on. It was villa like the different. I don't like the odds from boondocks vista lago. Oh i'm sorry i have lag. Oh no relation but yeah so it's a massive deal for brown. It's already in anime. It's yeah it's already out fifteen. I haven't the only thing i've seen thus far because i i wanna bench. The entire thing all at once was the intro in the intro music is so was the vamp. Eh totally just listened to refuse. I understand i'm uncultured are bike. Individuals not usually an enemy no l. No it's white hell most of the time anime has actually been fantasizing the western influence over asian culture as well as the change from east the west and so a lot of people are pale skin but also in asian culture people like me were dark or typically seen as lower people right. There's classes stuff that goes on how did not know that intense goes down a hair-color. Yeah really listen to some russell peters. Sometimes he breaks it all down jail. L. is a comedian person. Sean leshan tomasson. Thomas did boondocks he was he was amena. It's again just say it right old character designer from the boondocks and black dynamite. His animation style are designed. We'll kind of look a little bit like <hes>. No he actually went to korea. Study is a a lot of anime is actually outsource to korea <hes> so he studied how to do like japanese animation there <hes> and then got the anime style down and then this came came out and it very interesting so i mean i really love the boondocks character design and i am very much about it. Okay i. I'm looking at it. Oh you know why. I just saw the trailer trailer for that. Actually looks super dose an android trying to find her. <hes> another android <hes> is more like the dude with the crazy hair that looks like a mix between spike spiegel legal gene afro samurai and like yeah like the person that they're looking for. I saw the trick affiliate. The kid nice drive around in an american cadillac turns into a mac okay okay. It looks so i in an episode you know i think it's twelve but i could be wrong is good and leaves on a cliffhanger so far i've been all outright is not one week or out <unk> outright now who want us to shut down the anime andrew jackson's netflix has already greenland another project from him. <hes> iascaigh based on a true story of an african amer- i in feudal japan is it your usca oscar designed by animator quake and pretty spy map echo. I'm pretty sure that's a pretty popular concept. I think or a story because there's a lot of like dude. I know who are black. They call themselves iascaigh. The be right. I'm like is a thing. It's a thing and i'm like i guess it's yeah it's it's based on the true story so that like he's going to be making that and i can't think of a better person do it based on this. Can i jump on top of what you're doing. If you're done with your netflix a yeah i think i'm done sure because my tidbit mind give <hes> so netflix suggest announced <hes> kevin smith and marc bernardin who run fatman beyond the podcast cast and also kevin smith who's on clerks and mallrats and all the other things calm soon to be the jay and silent bob rebooting boot <hes> got claim through sunday and sounds like marc bernardin whose can't guys claim to fame like he did a a star trek internship a long time ago in the nineties and he's written like suffer a castle rock tread stones and new born show which only focuses focuses on the company that creates the born agents and all that shit he's in complex. He's doing endure the something something was talking about his daughter but it's finally been announced that him kevin smith are going to do a human animated series for net flicks. I think it just today as we're recording it yeah. That's one bit of thing. The one thing that i wrote down in our g drive was that hey did you guys know. Resin eagles getting a reboot yeah wait. I read that today but i i just saw the headline evil. Another part of the screen gems films as sony proper owns owns them milla jovovich as we know based on the core kind of loosely based on the video game is getting a full movie reboot franchisor so part part of it. I don't think so because her character was complete petitions. Yeah i know movies. The director and director is johan roberts. It's who who did forty-seven years down and the recent sequel forty seven meters down colon on caged so all that thing about shark week and hal the sharks are good now baby. I never went and some <hes> but he also did <hes> <hes> strangers the sequel to strangers rangers with live. Tom <hes> live tyler and scott speed men <hes> the the night hunter wherever the heck it's called but he's gonna be homing it. <hes> don't so pilots sony are going to be completed doing a bit. They're gonna go for more darker. <hes> closer to the the source video game. That's gonna be much more scary and there was actually league more like a survival than a welsh r._p._g. There was there was a lot of announcement that a year ago james was attached to produce it and <hes> there was a writer attached to write it but then they both have jobs out and said like we're not touching it so the director says hey were fully in active. Don't action so that's good to hear. We'll see what happens. <hes> i think it was says active development which is different than active production development is like when marvel's like haze two thousand fourteen. We're gonna come out with captain marvel and then eight years hey we we came out with captain marvel so development. Is that very early stage of like hey. Let's talk about what direction we're gonna go and i would love it if they actually went with like each movie video game in a sense or like a part of a video game. Maybe maybe each trilogy they do is like star wars. It's like a video game interesting like that but listen. I'll the next month's pretty short <hes> remember longtime ago e three twenty nineteen super off. They are square inex- they announced that final fantasy eight is finally getting remastering and of course me when i started on some more i'm excited me and corey both oh foster mine's very excited about this but had recently square in a very humorous way of made an announcement of the remastered graphics six and they remake reawakened an old name that is the you're the best looking guy here and then it zooms in and it's just like this really pixelated face yeah like the old graphics yeah they re released that meam but with the remastered ethics with the new graphics and actually looks dope like i'm like i'm gonna look it up right now this. I'm just really excited because found fancy eight really is one of my favorite in the whole <hes> franchise of final fantasy. You know that i've talked to ad nauseam about five fancy seven them but my next one would probably be f._f._a. I've always been like please do that. One please do that one and it's been such a strange thing because they lost since they lost the the master. It's like we didn't ever think that we were going to get this but it's i think it's actually might be a good thing because now they actually get to like clean it up for modern so the the meme kind of go with the blurb of like them being like hey. This is a release date or now. There is no release date. They're just showing off that. The graphics are yeah so we're working on it so development yup so don't i'm excited for that game my news your listen listen to turn volume listen. This is very important. <hes> as you all know disney plus their streaming service hitting the shelves november twelfth between nineteen launching with amanda very excited for this no longer excited for that show. I'll tell you why because something that i've been wanting to happen for. We're i don't know probably like ten years is is in the works. Disney is in talks with you and mcgregor to return for a show on disney plus what as obi-wan-kenobi and so for me. I've always wanted an o._b. One movie between i mean where we left off and where we pick up in the prequels to the original trilogy right. There's some time there. There's some time even mcgregor has said he's wanted to do a movie for quite at some time. If they were ever ask him he's like. I think there's a good story between me and alec guinness that we can tell right so <hes> there's age differences between the prequels also and the the the originals meaning like it's time for him. <hes> there's time he's aged of course twenty years or whatever it is luke's like eighteen nineteen right yeah and this marvel up have luke campbell. Come back and the hammer yup. Lou camel notice have mark skywalker comeback back at marvel treatment and the baby luke perfect <hes> so there's not much details besides that they're in the talks but the fact that the talks <unk> are happening have got the entire buzzing. I'm super stoked about it. It's it's like the one star wars story besides the older public that i really am interested in seeing i was just thinking you know i would love if they were to take this template off of if they do it like eamonn mine with him but then it comes doc at the finale of the season or the series where it's done. Let's let me finish okay finishes darth maul and yeah right so eamonn is martial arts. <hes> he's a human. A person is the guy who actually trained bruce lee <hes> but they have a series of films that off <hes> that they have right now <hes> and donnie yen stars known and pretty much the story of eamonn is pretty much like he's this great martial artists but he he could do nothing during world war two or during a war is deaf talk to during a war and like all his martial arts skills and stuff like the people around them still suffer they starve the military still oppressed them and it wasn't about him like beating up all the guys it was about him trying to strengthen his community. Wow and i was like they do on the empire. One and there's nothing he you can do about it bothered in stand for his tattooing on his living in a fucking case will form yeah this week on the little more that little more sabotage. Maybe he opens up the tashi hashi station. I i had this whole outline for one film where it was a little more logan spy thriller type of thing because he's out there is a little older right yeah so you know he's sneaking around the base in new hope y'all he's a little more of that little more like espionage type shit and then you have your final encounter with dogma mall at the end because that's where it has to end so i was mall as in like ray parker comes back yeah re park re park but not darth vader. No i said okay okay you have to end with darth maul at the end and he just puts away the lightsaber and then you have a hint at whatever new hope was and then reentered robot luke those there you go yeah yeah all right perfect questions just excited i love you and there's no ali this week going straight to questions straight to questions questions and to explain this a little bit of you can submit your questions. They can be anything from our in and out order to. What's your favorite movie to who would win in in a fight like which is your cheeks is your favorite nature marvel. I heroes you can send those questions two questions at nerd on dot tv our our patrons who are a member of the nerd on nation they get first dibs and so i'm actually going to start with a patron question. This comes from christie p. Why does tarantino you know you so much feet once upon a time in hollywood and in english bastards and in and and <hes> so i mean that's a recent. That's a pretty big question. I think it's a question that a lot of people have in the audience you know community who watched tarantino films because it is kind of like why are you so focused on five feet and i think a lot of people are asking like you know tarantino to his credit is a masterful director in some form fashion and people wanna know like there's a certain significance in narrative ah filmmaking i mean there's a lot of things you could kind of openly discuss and talk about with that i mean sometimes it is about him talking about like how he views like hippy upi nature or all that stuff because very highly liquid each story it signifies something different alluded to that but also comes to tell you where if you seem fo- sheets routine hammond i'm in production stills. It's like him on the foot of a bed with someone's feet around his face or like why does a character suck on a toe in in the middle of death proof. You know you never know and it kind of begs. The question is does he just really fantasize foot fetish sounds like would who is be allowed to be on twitch probably not ban by. I i honestly in my fair assessment of it. <hes> art is or film is an artist trying to visually express who they are and how they view the world and i think <hes> feet i mean unlike in in pulp fiction was like you go to foot massage. Yeah i get it. I wouldn't do it but i get it. You know why you wanna kill somebody because of fee and it's like all like hey whoever ever he's plowing at night if she got some good or he got some good feet and you know mean blessed be they so a lot of people. There are a lot of scientists that agree that how a foot fetish happens actually rewiring of the brain so like it started they discovered because there was this one guy who was studying phantom limb no phantom limb syndrome and apparently the part of the brain that would light up when they would test how they reacted to you know they would hold a mirror and poke their one hand and see if they could feel it on the other side where where there isn't a there's a lot of interesting studies around that kind of stuff but they notice the part of the brain that was lighting up for limbs hands and feet was right next to the part that identifies the genitals oh so they think that it's the close proximity in the brain and there's no salt lake. This analysis like something happened like a crime just kind of combines on your brain your psyche and so they think that's a possibility a lot of people agree that that's most likely the case like the biologics of course there's some there's some you know in this sense. <hes> you can have some nature versus nurture kind of thing there can't be something like sigmund freud type stuff in your past but they say that the people who haven't had those experiences most muscle can be brain wiring the interesting so it could be a number of things both things by means also like why does josh sweden wanna have dorky dudes fallen beautiful women's breasts yeah because what he wants to make sense. Sometimes a cigar is just once a feat. He wants a toe in his mouth what he wants. Maybe i mean he got it in from desktop. How many how many other films <hes> you know kind of sexualize feet not not many no. I'll be surprised again you kinda ask. Maybe i think there's a there's a lot of people that do have sexual inkling towards feet and i think you might wanna just represent that more if even housing shame here so this tells them dozens thousands of us a little rest of joke <hes> but no i think that's there's not much narrative into it. I mean you could kind kind of putting into that where it's like the that is the sexual like the only thing about close to that is seen buying clyde yeah yes faye dunaway and <hes> there's a point where where so he's a rock bonnie and clyde robbers baba and eric couple but there's a point where they're kind of seducing each other and he seducing her with the thrill of being a robber and he holds his gun out but he hold really close to his penis and it's a phallic symbol. It's kind of like this is the sexual desire to have danger and then she as you do in those older over films. It's licking a lollipop. Yeah and it's like those kind of things happen so it's like it's a sexualize look at it and it's voyeuristic in a sense for us to kind of see like through the lens that he's trying to offer us through his narrative of like how characters are viewing other ones like it. You can kind of presume that that characters using it for a sexual use yeah. Um only that thing about the answer that that's <hes> next question and i found this one to be really touching. This is comes from from mitchell g. Let's here and i'm going to read the entire play mail. It says i'm about to start college for a degree for job. I like but i don't want to do i. I decided on this job because it was easy and sounded adult and like a real job but i don't want to do it. I've always wanted to create and build something and put my voice out there for or someone to be something good in that person's life but afraid hence the other job because there are so many artists and writers podcasts and youtubers that i feel like there is no point so my question is how do you guys do it. How do you overcome the fear that you aren't making any difference and that you might wake up and have to stop up creating something you love and how can i do it. Wow deep yeah. It really was like i we have to answer this. I i think all four of us will probably have an individual answer fishing mitchell. Yes mattress jeff. Thank you mitchell for sending that question <hes>. I think it's a really heartfelt one and you know we don't. We often say like you could send any questions you liked by. Definitely these like big ones. Make us have to retrospectively an introspective. Thanks it's really nice. You might have a crack at it. Please please words or not but i a i was a kid. I was a young dude yeah. <hes> you know everyone has their own sense of when they started being interactive with media <hes> you could hear about like james cameron and all these directors you picked up a camera shot something with my family or slings. I love doing live performances in front of my family at the pool who'll an x y and z whatever it may be my dad listen obama said just put on a play yeah so like parents were like play music for them where they would perform songs <hes> for me. It was very much like i've got a camera and i knew i wanted to be a director but the first thing i did was like i wanna shoot stuff with my friends. In a lot of that time was like pretty much like video albums. I called him that where it's like i would shoot you members of summer and then i'd put some perfect song that we kind of encapsulate that com yeah out stains yellow card more like hand i love you iris goo dolls confessional dashboard invested <hes> but that was when i was in high school and i was like fourteen fifteen sixteen at that point <hes> and you're like oh you should do this more and then i started doing youtube stuff and then like i got my forward that a what i think i'm trying to get to is like no matter matter where you start wherever you end up being going to be completely different than where you're yeah. You're gonna be you gotta really kind of. Keep throwing as much you can't do. It finds something that you really love doing like i think about it as much as starving artists idea where it's like do something that you're willing to starve that you're willing to eat cup noodles every day for a year something that makes you lose time yeah and do it and the thing is like you don't know what dividends you're gonna get out of it. Because of the dividend that you should be getting is actually fulfillment that you're doing something that a a lot of people wish they can do so many people telling me that like oh my god. You're doing something in your field. I'm like no. I'm fucking nuts like i am not i to pay the bills. Job is very different than what i do here. The podcast and i love what i do here and i think i do because of the intellectual discourse. I gotta have with people but like doing something like this. It does take courage and think lex. Lang talked about it in our last episode that we had where he said like kayla's win. Do you ever feel like you've done enough work to kept character and he says after i'm done you will never know until you're done a- and the thing is you never know what you might liken to. You're done doing it. I never thought i would be doing podcasts in like forty years and then someone said to do it at my old apple store i used to work at and then so instead they do it with the current friends they have now and i'm like at the other apple stripers but <hes> yeah it's it's tough. I think it's definitely dancing and that is there is a kurds to it. I mean i think there's kurds that people have like going out there to sacrifice your life for the country you love and for the rights of people that you never meet but then creating something that put yourself in a world that expresses who you are is another form of courage and to go out at unabatedly and try to be fearless fearless in that sense it's courage and it takes time and a guarantee. No one in the world who is a creator right now has ever been fully sure of themselves even sure of who they are but then of what they're putting out there. Everyone has that nailbiting moment. Yeah i mean i think it's it's kind of a constant. I hate to use the word battle because it's not a battle for me. Eh i mean i've been a creative for probably most of my life. I started acting when i was in junior high and what it did for me. <hes> at the get go was got me out of my shell because i was a very very <hes> shy kid introverted very very introverted and it got me out of my shell and i just never stopped creating in some way whether it was acting whether it was music now with this podcast with other podcasts my album album the stuff that i i work in the entertainment industry which is dope. I'm really excited about that but being a content creator or being something that is a creative field. Is i hate to say this. It's hard because what you have to do is. I know it's a joke but it's like that that grind you got. You have to keep going i. I don't think you should hate to say that. It's hard. I mean it should be most things that are worth doing hard. Yeah and it really is a constant you. You have to remind yourself because i remember. I had this friend who was a working actor that worked all the time and you didn't know her. You didn't see her but she worked all the time living that she made a living from acting which is amazing and i was like man. That's really great and she's like you know. My family is always there. Always i say like i'm so proud of you. You book this book book that and blah blah blah and it's like don't be proud of me when i book be proud of me when i don't because in those moments in in thinking about something that <hes> and i didn't show a friend a friend of the show the bird brain podcasts he talks about gratitude and he talks about being grateful for when things aren't going well yeah and that's the thing about creative work is that it's not always going to be what we call. Those christmas miracles that it's like oh my gosh. This thing went viral or oh my gosh. This person's is on the show and it's doing really well. It's like those moments where it's like a slog and i just want to share this this really quick quote because it's a book that really it struck me and and i read it a few years ago and it's called the war of art by stephen press field. If you are a creative it doesn't matter what field whether you're a writer and actor musician a podcast or anything content content creator. You are an artist. I really suggest you read this book. Because he talks about the resistance he calls at the resistance that happens in creative work and it is kind of what mitch's she's is bringing up like what's the point. How what is the point of me doing this this way. It's called the sensor. Yes yes yes yes but one of the last chapters he essentially really sums up is creative. Work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention on the part of the artist. It's a gift to the world and every being in it. Don't cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you got. I it's it's a reminder that what we're doing may not make sense all the time but we just it means something coming to us and it only takes one person it only takes one audience member like mitchell g to reach out and to know that it makes all the difference right yeah that that's my my i mean i've been on the artists track in some way shape perform pretty much since i was a kid. I didn't know what i was gonna. Do trump's base <hes> thank you jerk <hes> but yeah from ten to like seventeen. I was on the classical symphony going to be touring with music doing tracking looking for cds and whatever that was what i was going to do for seven years of my life you can and commitment yet well and and then i realized that's not what i wanted to do <hes> and i was i was actually at the stage. You are right now mitchell where i was like i'm going to go to college judge and get a degree for something that i don't want to do for the rest of my life and that was really hard. My parents were not happy because because i could have had a full ride scholarship on base and i didn't want it and it was the best decision i made because now i mean there were a lot of things that happened after that point. Obviously i never plan to move to l._a. I never planned to get into you. Acting or a podcasting or you know any of the millions of other things jujitsu you but here we are like two years later. We still need to to play baseball there. Show that's fine. I'll figure out something but yeah so just know what's right for. You know that you're going to have to struggle to do do what's right for you especially. If you're carving a new path in in something that hasn't been done before and know that what you do specifically you no one what else will ever have done before. No one has like your way of doing a._c._d._c. heard beethoven and was like <hes> they made music before i can never make it again yeah like yeah you're right. There's self-doubt everywhere everywhere. Everyone's making something all the time but it's kind of the the thing where no one's a special snowflake snowflake but everyone's a special snowflake. Everyone has something to contribute in their own way. It's mr rogers though what the yeah the only you you're the only you there is and if you don't contribute what you have the no one's going to see it so really it's just fine. What makes you happy and if what makes unhappy is hard. I know that it's going to be hard but find a way to enjoy that struggle to add onto that jason morales often talks about like where you put your focus and it's it's it's you can focus on the negative you can focus on the dow you can focus on that but you got to focus on your mission because the doubt will the doubt will drip n. an and if you put your focus where you can kind of close up those those cracks where the doubt is coming in and side note. I can't tell you how many times i've had friends family any colleagues all sorts of things like ooh. I don't know if you should. I don't know if you should do that. That sounds like kind of a risk by that doesn't understand what i call and they like as long as i mean obviously take constructive criticism. Please take constructive. Criticism seek that out. Don't we'll give it to you whether whether you're looking for don't fall victim to shit criticism right. There's a lot of shit criticism. You don't need them from the people you trust right yeah and then people you should in some people you don't trust and had like here that out but like there's going to be people who actually know how to build on top which doing and then people who just doubt you yeah like no those differences in filter that show yeah i mean i think he has a pretty well. I'll share one call. Go back to them that i'm gonna keep going. I think i agree with all your points. You know it is hard as <hes> but like i said it should it should be hard. It should challenge yourself. If it was easy. You'd get bored of it really quick <hes> but i'll share another on the jason mraz quote here. This is the one that i always applied everything i i kind of. Do i base a lot of decisions off off this and it's a measurement of success and there's a lot of people who tell you success means. You have to have x. amount dollars in your bank account. You have to own these things. You have to like these things you have to dress this way <hes> yada yada yada whatever it is <hes> but success is a simple question <hes> that i ask myself at the end of of creating doing things or the end of iran or like tommy filmed the pilot and i asked myself at the end of that how you know the simple question is just are you fulfilled and if the answer is yes then you're successful because there's a lot of people out there who can't answer yes to that question and that's what i strive to do is at the end of the day. Can i answer that i'm fulfilled and if i'm saying yes and keep on truckin and that's yeah. That's what it comes down to you for me. It's like you're always taking. That's how i wake up. Every day. Nice tends to that question. That's i wake up every day. Knowing that someday you know <hes> making a difference on on a global scale probably not but on a personal scale yeah means everything to me. I think those little milestones not little they're milestones to us but it's something that we get to keep personally intimately with ourselves elves and then we can do that with like corey and i have talked about this ad nauseam word like i'm pretty polar opposite. Everyone i think in the room that i'm kind of self loathing a lot and it's not like i i hate myself. I wake up and do what the fuck is a point of everything. It's like at the end like we'll be in the ground longer than we are standing on top of it. That's like how the world works. <hes> <hes> in figuring out where your footprints leave higly the world and all that stuff that's what kind of grand scope questions i asked myself and asking those questions of like how do you wake up and do what you do like i wanna do i do want to speak on the other end of it like i do know someone that wasn't actor and she decided that acting wasn't for her. She went to science field. She went back to school and sometimes it isn't and i'm not saying this isn't for you but you really to caitlyn's point you gotta ask yourself those questions of like. Do i really want this. What's best for me and am. I going to be happy for doing doing what i wanna do. Sometimes you find that out sometimes you don't there's not going to be like this beautiful blanket answer that just like solves all your issues and gives you clarity for the universe cosmic awareness it was that easy. It'd be really boring. It'd be really boring and <hes> true. Change is never convenient. True change socks change hurts and you have to grow through and figure that out and we ended that you find yourself like i joke about it but there's some people who wake up and finally i want to be an actor. Then you gotta go to school. You've got to figure that out. You got to put the committee yet how to do that time time and josh talked about it whereas like it's hard. It's commitments grind but it's kind of like what are you willing to grind for that. You really love and i think where it doesn't feel like a grind. It is like from outside looking in if somebody's looking at wow you're working really hard. It doesn't feel like that to me. It's kinda like if you want to get good anything you do grind to leveling up in a video game. I want to get my character. Better archery skills like i want to get faster at the mile run. I gotta run more miles parts of it. That's hard. I mean i love doing all this but even sometimes editing episodes or you know getting the post social media post done for the week it. It is a little bit like okay. I gotta do this thing. They're days. It's not always perfect. You gotta know that that's going to happen. There's going to be those days where you're not feeling it but just know think back in the days where it does. I mean bringing it back to nerd on as a whole i mean there's been moments in in our history where we've tried things and maybe a few months few you months later we go. What are we still feel about that. Yeah and it's it doesn't bring as much joy and this is this is cliche. Rekondo cliches spock jolie the only cliches hell but don't also don't be afraid to fail. We fail that a lot of things as a group so far <hes> which is not a negative thing to say. It's just that we tried it and we didn't get it right and we're maybe it's not for us. Yeah and we've tried other thing so be ready for that is how you find out what works and honestly like a worthy you try something now or later like there is never such thing as too late and there's never i see a lot of people will put that pressure but you gotta know what this is. I was put that pressure like all my life like from five years old. I was asked what i want to be when i grow up and like i think about it and that's a shitty fucking thing to ask because i want you to shut up. That's what i want to be a cowboy like things you can't and this is the tough thing. It's very easy for us to say since we're doing it and we've gone through the trials and tribulations of going through college and getting ostracized and all this stuff but like honestly there is a beauty in the form of finding that fear that you have that paralyzation paralyzation that you are getting from it and then trying to work within it and working through it because you can't let that fear of failure or that fear and doubt stop you from. I'm just trying like excitement to try should always trump the fear of failure <hes> and whether it works out or not like when i did a youtube channel i found out i'm i'm not cut out for this and then like i said no because i got you to heat and youtube trolls and youtube comments and you to be for people and i was like this isn't for me because 'cause i'm not doing what i wanted to do and i wanted to make films and then i realized that that's not cool and like i don't wanna do this stuff anymore and then i started making films and then like look at me now fucking personality data gotta and then like i don't want to talk to cameras but if i get to do it in some form or fashion sometimes you find yourself doing it and it was like the beautiful thing about art is that you get to do the things that you wanna do and not the way that you're thinking you're going to do it key. Yes light yeah. Cooking cooking allows you to be a chemist in the kitchen. Podcasting allows you to be a sound mixer for t._v. And and all the lessons that you learn in the various <hes> failures or processes that you go through i you're gonna learn learn things from those things that you can apply to other things like acting has taught me one of the things that acting tommy and taught me how to talk to people it taught me how to communicate communicated indicate taught me how to be myself taught me <hes> one lesson i always remember from acting as they say learned to love the process because the performing part of it isn't actually it's a very small part of it. It's the process of it. It's the rehearsal. It's the learning the lines it's all of that so learned to love the process and so the process of us making creating is the best part of it all i would also say don't doubt your adult quote unquote adult job. I have my quote unquote. Oh adult job to and it pays the bills and you've got to do that. Sometimes to let your art survive like you gotta take care of yourself. You gotta be good mental health like like tough things. You got starving artists. I just mentioned that earlier like somebody's gotta pay bills. Sometimes you got to you know. Make sure your car insurance. Is there make sure your car's running. Make sure you can feed yourself. Make sure you like you can shower our all these things go into that process and which are saying you might learn something from that adult job that will help out your art later on soo often too often <music> all the time <hes> and you you really discredit like there's so many things i've learned from my paycheck to paycheck job that i'm like oh. This has helped me network with people and get like work on collaborations aberrations. I never thought i was able to do so. It's don't discount one thing or other. It's all part of the process and if you wanna go towards the don't discount what passenger you're gonna take take step yeah. Thank you for the question man. Yes thank you so much mitchell. Gee we really appreciate it. <hes> we are going to make our way to the end of the show. I just wanna thank everybody so much for listening zinc for watching for whatever you do to support nerd on we really appreciate you <hes> check out our website nerd on dot tv.

He has tits for day. A come on bro. Now he's a monster do and also he's a man in his late forties let. Let's not forget that he's now know who any while you're young. He when he says muscles like are so jacked. Ni- sela if you did if this was not famous person in used sky shit your pants everybody would be like. Oh my fucking god look at. Who is no if you saw. If he's in his late forties. You saw this guy talking about you said jim. I'd be like oh mental. Illness wouldn't be like oh no he's normal. You know. Every time. I work out. I think this i thought roast the show guy. Oh yeah and you. You definitely think he's crazy told. These moana pretends onto saw amazing ear of growth. Thanks to your zoe energy bradley. Fuck at here man. i love it though. he's crushing. he's like. I'm drinking my energy drink and by the way i have one hundred. Cc's of hgh fire right now. The way. I am for pills for breakfast. What's fucked. Fuck and kidneys. Shut down earlier. this week. I'm tied to machine every night. Claire my system. But what's funny. Is you know. He was like the blog. They started blogs now and he does blogs and he's like he looked great most entertaining guy in the world and he goes you know doing special thing today. My stunt double. Who's been with me for ten years. Give him the gift of a lifetime here. And i damn what's he give them under armour shoes thinking like some dope ass special dish ferraris the. Nfl here yes south. Ninety oh shit. Yeah f. one fifty that he sponsored by. Yeah and the guy's like oh you didn't like i did bring you know agree. It's free advertising for them and that was free didn't cost him anything that's like him giving me a snickers bar you know what i'm saying. Yeah yeah. I wish people with tons of money would just flex spend. Why is it always to be a sponsored thing. Great just by it. Just do it dude. That's not a fucking elegant but to your point about them being competitive is fuck yes. Same way comedy. Yes and especially especially when you hit like notable you know like levels where it's like once you go on a the tour you're not just like cool everything's good you want to go on the bigger theatre tour arenas to arena and then the big thing is there's if you study the comedy arena business. Most people don't do repeat arena tours. Why because your your draw kind of peaks and then kinda like tapers out you know. So that's your like jumanji two or some shit. Unless like kevin kevin's like one of the few guys kevin russell peters trying to think chapelle chapelle doesn't like playing arenas does them and he doesn't like the bactheatre i mean. I think he's always said that. He prefers like clubs and like smaller venues. He does them whenever he wants. So he's like he he can keep doing certain amount of like. Do you see four top. Ten list recently. No sebastian's on there for this year because this would be a weird year no not this year. Yeah this year seinfeld twenty years. He's on there every year. Every fucking yeah human like jay. Leno rock was still like i guess. There's a twain nineteen. Yeah i remember that. I remember the twenty twenty list because i was one of five comic story. Sure yeah should yeah. It's a crazy. Yeah gaffe agains on a bunch. Amy with see she's probably on a bunch. So aziz was on it jeff on. He's been on it. I'm sure a dozen mood. I was doing standup live in phoenix. And they wanted to add a show us feeling myself. And i told my team on the guy. We're gonna go by. Phoenix suns tres. Well and it was three in the afternoon. And i look over 'cause right across from that we're the son play and it's packed. Sons aren't fucking plane. Why so pack. Coach jeff donald the public diarrhea. He has four sold out shows. It shows friday to show saturday. Here's a four o'clock show the oh yeah that he's the reason and being able to do that is why all these Managers will tell like comedian. Started like be clean. Which is like it's bad. You should be what you are whenever fit but like with jeff. The thing is that when when you think about his draw so different for most comedians comedians. You know we play. It's an it's obviously a nightclub thing it's mostly You know adult humor or whatever you're doing clubs and maybe theaters and stuff he because he's so clean he can do Like four o'clock four o'clock shows or clock with do like those he does shows in like those megachurches. Those megachurches in this out. He could be like you know what on our way to that show. There's this town that has a nine thousand seat mega. We'll just do a show ended up. Sells it out so monster all those. Yeah he can play those. Are you a guy went to probably not now. 'cause you've made it when you were coming up where you gotta that compared yourself to other comics. Well i think would get jealous. When like not. Burt as your boy but other people like him. he's in theaters. Oh i hear that a lot from other guys right now. I mean. I don't know if i was like man he's i i was more like like more like a student. I feel like more like studying. You know and like or i would. I would work. I opened for like everybody. Because i was plugged in. I got the improv and funny bone. So i would work all those clubs and the coast to coast the best ones would be in those. Are the club. So you're opening for a lot of times. Yeah known celebrity. And then i could see like i would start to figure out i was like oh this person sold tickets because they're famous. Yup and i would note like that was like a amid happening a lot and then you would the ones who are really good at stand up were way. Smaller percentage like of all the celebrities and wealthy people open for i would say like ten to fifteen percent. Were really good comedian. Those fifty percent now are probably way bigger out because they're the ones that sprint exactly. You not and you'll see someone with shit material up you like older in this movie or yeah get this show and you know who they are. We don't need to name them and even at the comedy store you'll see them the pop in yet their sandwich between real comics like oh you sometimes when those now now that we know what we're doing and when looking at when i see like those celebrity comic pop you're gonna eat shit show and i i i'm gonna i'm gonna sit around for this. Yeah i'm gonna make sure you see me. Imagine your says you know. I saw and then i just go by. Yeah i was out. Thomas it was funny too because like you realize that you can end up like that meaning that you can end up like well. If i'm known enough. I can you get away with it. Though short lived though it's so short lives and when you think about there's comics out there. Those famous comics celebrities. Who sell tickets. And they're taking one hundred dollars a piece piece so you bring your girl your four hundred dollar night. Plus dinner plus drinks. Say six hundred with parking and babysitters six hundred dollars. You better be fucking good. Yeah get back on all right. Yeah no you want to take. Is that person for sure. Act like that was the best and when you do announce their like we bought on the fucking presell like we could not miss you because it's all about them coming back you know. Let's what it is. Yeah i use it man. I so i think i really i mean i probably we all have like you know hints of jealousy and stuff. When you're especially when you're young like that person get that you know. But i think i got in the game later you know and there's not that and then all my peers like you guys are so much more successful someone can. Of course they're better and mean these do longer. Yeah there. that's what i'm saying. It's like so. I think i took your approach. Ride just learnt the it all. Yeah and then it's not it's not like on. Would it be there like y'all get there man. Which is it's a it's a marathon. That's exactly how to approach it. Because i would just go like. I would look at my year and i'd be like all right this year i featured at like. Let's say twenty clubs and i made you know worth thirty thousand dollars or whatever it was and i would go like the next year i just was like i just wanted to be better than this year. And like that that thing whereas like this ended up featuring at forty clubs this year and i made twenty thousand dollars more so i i would look at that as progress in and just trying to like make. That progress happened by putting in work. Yup so my my thing now is like a look at a like if we go back a certain city a like if it's not selling more than i didn't do my job. That's not yeah. It's not the people so the way. I gauge success. Now is so. Let's say. I was in san antonio two years ago one on september so if i can't sell more and september yet then i'm messing up. It's on me gauge. All my success base off said ticket sales. Yeah i mean. It's a good way to see that it's moving along on the business side and then you have to ask because i would always try to go like am. I doing writing better material. Correct you know and like that's usually the a thing that only you can really answer up you know and it it. Sometimes it makes you have like tough conversations with yourself but it's ultimately good. I mean you have. There's kind of like a pair loan away with like athleticism athletics in that way. Right where you're lacking white. Yeah where you're like am i. Yes you know. Yeah m i if your quarterback like m. i. scoring touchdowns game. Yeah like are they laughing him. I sound tickets. Yeah well no. They didn't laugh at this with it. Yeah it's pretty black and white. Yeah and you feel great. You can choose. The thing is one of those things where you can choose to be as delusional as you want to be and we see a right in front of us. The delusional people you have small delusions to yourself. We all do all the time where you'll be. You know like something. A joke has just kind of a half ass joke. And you'll just be like i just won't work on that you know there's more there and i'll be like but that would take effort guy so then you just you know and then one day. You're like that joke fucking and then then you finally address it. I also think when you look at special these days in. This is what i wanted to talk to you. Either honor off your about this unanimous if you want talking to you know net flakes and comedy central and showtime. Hbo talked to all these people issues. Special and in their analytics analytics. This what it is. It's pretty black and white. We know we know that people stop watching specials at twenty eight minutes. Yeah they come some might come back half comeback. Some might finish finish all. But whether it's kevin hart jerry seinfeld did watch at twenty eight minutes yet. The industry wherein people say you're doing our yeah on the road no doubt people paying money under an hour did but when we're looking at like what people are watching why we keep the you know the the the people who run this entry key pushing hours to me as weird. Yeah well the first one. I hear twenty minutes ago which you thirty to thirty thirty though especially you kind of show. I think we're married to. We know that what you know if you become a headliner you do in our rights on the road on the road. What what's funny though is that i mean at neff lakes. They have encouraged an aggressively encouraged trimming down these special. Why do you think that is. They're just like like 'cause. I i have a tendency on all of them to. Oh i shoot a really long set. And then the hardest thing is like paring down for the head and it kinda down cutting down and like i've cut down you know minutes out of one twelve out of one and then it'll still be two like too heavy too fat for them and the like. They've encouraged like delivering like a fifty minute special. You know they're like deliver that in. I've also had from a friend who just signed a deal with them that they go hate so people a lotta people watching the beginning and then even less than minutes so put your clothes at the top. I've heard them don't shave your best strong. Because they're not going to get this. Yeah there's there's a fucker we don't i know. Well that's the other thing though is like if you're touring with that our time you probably feel like when it comes time to shoot and you're just like well just shoot this but think about it. It's like when you shoot a special than you gotta write a whole new our. If you have an hour on the road you shoot thirty of that. You've thirty to go out with on. The road noticed totally totally so much more sense to does. And it's this old school model. That richard pryor really ingrained in everybody for this hour specialists like this the standard if everybody in the audience is telling you they're telling how these numbers lead. The is was much shorter if if it was like mandate or like totally embraced to do like thirty minute specials i mean i think it would be a huge celebration like people would be like. Oh i can deliver one of those every few months. Yeah it'd be great man. It'd be granted we could do it. Yeah she got to do it. You just gotta do it. I mean the. There's a reason why they started doing. Fifty minute stuff. Your net flicks is because they're like now. We told you watch half hours. They actually watch fifteen minutes fifteen hot. Yeah you gotta have a hot fifteen now. If you have fifteen minutes special you better fucking destroy. Destroy every hot fifty hot fifteen sending build up. Because i i always. I still think this thing when people are like who you know. People asked like who comics watching. And who's hilarious and i'll be like i'll tell you one thing though no matter who you like. There's nothing as funny. Nobody as good as a feature in their prime about to pop. I'll do like teen. Who's working twenty every week. Doing his twenty. I go you put that guy in front of any you put him in front of chapelle and heart and rock and rogan. I go that guy will not everyone's dick off because he does twenty s all the time yes and because i remember if you look at like the hardest i've ever have. I've had great headlining sets but there is a a period right before you headline where you're a murderous middle act where it's like if you pop in on the store and you do those twenty minutes people will be like. I don't want any part now because it's just that's all you do. The headline like have fun with that with that dates. Have me. I mean i i had a couple sets like memorable sets like when i was featuring where the headliner did like thirty eight minutes. He was like mom.

Then i was like who's the who's the headliner that because the headline and club yes can't pa- it's not the story and i miss pat and i don't know her but i know you guys know. Yeah yeah his. Pass i tech jobs. Okay what's up. Ms pasha nice. You like go big back. Go and i haven't done ten minutes or fifteen minutes. How it's a big shift change. Don't realize how it's funny because you go you're used to doing our sets and fifteen is going to give you trouble and you're like yes because i haven't done trying to shovel like august this bit. It went all right. You know ain't good can handle myself. No one all right but then this comes on stage you choose so nice in the back l. Cool i didn't know she's like the female version of joey went out there. And just you fucking salt lake rush you fucking pussies. You're going to cheer for that. Handsome white boy laugh at his shit at my show. Mike l. nineties mon mon. She's a monster. Can light blow torch. Oh she yeah blue that room apart. Yeah like if she like she was she's she's the headliner but like if you told her do twenty in front of me i'd be like good luck like she's gonna fucking towards the room kill it. Yeah yeah i mean. That's why i always tip my hat to these guys like Like joe and like russell who they would bring people like d. as and to open 'cause they're like go ahead. Oh i got David lukas dave. I just saw him. I was in austin. And i saw him set. Yeah he killed it soon. Kill so i bring you roll like i saw you on. Nellie like like big terror squad makes no sense my business guys. Are you making any money. Bring my shot up. So yeah i bring. David starting defenses out there. I mean is like so. Many people is walking the green on the first weekend. He's working with me. you know. it's all my brothers my manager. Big dude chapelle big dude. I bring my friend mark harley. He's just a great guy. Takes everything but everyone says he's not a comic. No he's he's he's a personal trainer actor nickelodeon like he's an act. Okay okay and so. Everyone's big david watson us dan. This is all fucked up toward. But yes so i bring just nellie them see and then david goes on david lucas. Who's a monster. The chapelle does twenty alchemy. Wow but it's like mon but it raises that's great because it raises the show show be felt like that. Don't you wrong spells a monster but means you spelt my best friend. So we're really close. And i know his act and you know he has my act. But then when david lukas open he he came when i was doing. The volk in austin is the game. If i get a set and i've always liked him with in really never seem to comedy i he. He's a guy in tony hinchcliffe show. I was a gal. Do ten minutes blew it up to the point. I was nervous in the back. Fuck here we go. Yeah and then that. I think and that's where the athlete income. Oh this guy's gonna make me better exactly when you're sparring. You don't want to start the real shitty. Yeah you want to get to the next level guild with a really good guy exact. I hit him. I'm like dude you're in. He's like what you're coming with me for the rest night. Yep that is that is the right. And i think it's more natural to athletes like you to go like you know what this is going to make me better you better. Most people have that resistance to it. But every time like when i do these shows i wanna bring a really strong opener. A i want to show to be great. I never get why headliners brain shitty calm. Because they're scared. I know they're scare week. Yeah yeah and the insecure. I mean like you know that the audience has to sit through that. Yeah so when you get all right you wanna look like the savior or whatever you know. It's interesting there are like there's usually that thing is a shit act like it's a shitty like i well this shittiest headliner. One of the city's headliners. I ever open for who. I'll tell you off my waist. Pretty you'll be like oh yeah but Like pretty notable person and i saw acknowledged fucking suck and so this guy had me host right so i was hosting and he had a middle act. His middle act was hands down one of the worst things i've ever seen in my life. I was doing ten minutes as that. Which is like the standard time at like comedy club. You host does ten middle twenty some of that do ten seconds show. They asked me to five and the next night he goes. We do a tight three. And i was like i three. Ah mean announce your name and they're like you'll get paid the same like fifty bucks. Thanks yeah so. I'm like okay. And i did and the the guy in the middle so i i would get him going and then one time i came back i the feature left. He would just eat just horrific. It's weird to me when guys don't realize he knows he sucks. Terrible like he was he was terrible. See i like that cool. Yeah he's likable. Guy goes crush. Yeah i'm like. I kinda wanted to. I wanted to Those guys are crushed killed. I kill sometimes those guys. I'll watch a guy like have a bad set and they come off and you're like that and they're like they're good and you're really you mean like people like me like good or what are we talking about here. We're talking world you fucking living in this guy. This shitty comedian when the guy got off stage. One time i went up and i did a joke between the feature the horrible feature and the headliner. And they're like don't do that either because you've got them kind of going what are you doing. You're making them laugh. Yes shit yeah and then you're fifty bucks right on top of all of that. I fucking sat in the green room with this shitty headliner and rift. On one of his bits he was like kind use. That and i was like sure and so. I ended up writing a couple of jokes. Thanks to the jokes. And here's bucks. Stock it's weird too is My boy ricky crews in luis diaz there in miami their local miami comics. When i first worked with them at the improv lewis comes in these big fat guy and ricky's be roommates with joey. Diaz monster like local monster came out to la and then had kids moved back monster all the local references lights month. Sure of a funny story. That can't tell him this about him open for a headliner that we know but and giving them travel. Oh dude yeah yeah yeah. The managers like so the told the headliner. This the manager of miami goes to the headliner. We know he goes. Hey so i think what we should do is ricky should close it out and then you host and do like have fun and bring them the teacher do it. He wouldn't do do it. He's like no. I sold the tickets to see me. I know but it's not going on. I don't know if you see people leaving and walking but we can't have that yes. I don't care i'm headlining. I did what. I what do i know. Yeah i mean good for him so this is always louis Diaz was he came in the green room. Watermelon up on your winching row while you're doing doing in addition what he weirdly autism. When you doing any goes. Hey forrest gump get back in here. He goes oh most headliners won't let anybody in the green room really go. Who have the fuck. You been working with your. Oh they won't allow me to know. Take a drink or anything man. I want a cup of water. Matures bottled water. Yes i don't touch that. My god this is when you met him this like two years. So this is. This is ricky luis diaz lou. Okay and i'm like what. What headliners such a hassle. Take a seat. i remember. Well i had i had Was his name robert Bob schimmel robert schimmel. Who passed away the sweetest man. And i remember i because i had worked one weekend a few weekends with charlie murphy and one week and they were like. I walked into the green room. The guy goes we doing. This is just some guy i was like. I'm gonna he's like. Oh yeah you can't be in there. And i was like what am i supposed to supposed to hang find somewhere out here.

We'll do just like when i got side. I can see the brake lights. Turn their turn the car. And i'm running my fattest enrich i know. Risks didn't want me to come to dinner so fuck that why i got rich. He made the man so get in there and we. We got to have such vivid memories of that dinner because charlotte. Charlie has such a funny like way of thinking and speaking i. I've told this before. But when when when charlie was i gonna do rogan and i found out i texted. I was like make sure you ask him. And you can watch it in the episode. I go make sure you ask him about johnny gill saying that he can beat oscar de la hoya fight because that's what he told me at dinner that night and i laughed so fucking hard because the way that he brought it up he was like do you think oscar de la hoya coop. Yes and i was like. Yeah what are you talking about. All delone he was like he could fuck you. I was like i sure and he was like yeah right. And i was like dude. There's no question about it. And i was like you wouldn't even know what happened. It would be so fast. And i was like the speed is would stand now. You'll be like i remember something can't box talking about and he was like you know johnny gill house like the singer. He's like yeah he goes he thinks he is the host asked us what and he told me the story about how they're at a party and johnny gill was like i could fuck him up and they're like no. You can't like this whole argument. Legit debate login and johnny gill's like swearing the god that he can so i was like joe. You have to ask this and he did. He asked him about it. He was like so so that night that night. The funny thing is. I go to dinner with charlie rich and then we go back to the hotel and like charlie and i really got along. You know we really clicked with. Yeah we we had good report. We laughed a lot. And so i go. Well this is it for me man and he goes no. It's not like he's like shaking my hand and i go what he goes. I'm in charge like this ain't it. He's like gimme he goes. He goes rich. I still remember like the he goes. Pull out the bathroom. So the flip phone burner. And he's like he. What's your number. And i see rich. Go it's Three to see them. Go like vacant. And i was like and i know he's not putting your your boy rich. He's not putting number may. Did you get the give me your number. So i see him do that. 'cause rich could he just didn't like he didn't like me men and then it's one of those things and i like i put it together in real time in the moment i was like okay. Yeah every time. I said some rich never heard from that was i never heard from again. Two three weeks later i get a phone call that i don't recognize his joe and he goes Hey what you doing next week or the week after. I was like nothing he goes. You wanna go tampa. Yeah what's tabby goes loose shows in the ufc. And i was like. I mean kind of school college football and he was like. Oh we'll go to the next day and you know zach cool. I was like yeah. You know i remember. I was like yeah. i'm going to. How long did you Feature for joe he you know he always like at that time. It was like a circle of guys right. it was so i started to do it It was already doing it. The would do it but he would bring me like. I don't know at the time i feel like couple times every few months and did he pay. He paid well even back then. Yeah i mean it always. It always like matched. What whatever level with doing you know so like in the clubs it was like it was more than the club's paid you which i always. I took that. When i started selling tickets and clubs. If you came from me. I'd be like a i'll pay you double up. I'll match with the club. Pays you you know. Yeah so that the feature act actually makes living. I'll call rogan. Came and taipei chapelle. This much david this much. that's cool. I pay my guys. Tell me i'm like no. I know we're not. Yeah well so you're doing it with chapelle we're not in the same now definitely not the same. It's all right man. Like i feel like it's pretty good. The the the amount. I think always depends on like what you're getting right. So that's what. I tell those guys. I'll be open to them like. Hey we we saw this weekend and whatever we added show so you guys see that in your paycheck. Yeah which is awesome. It's cool to do but the club's deep in their still doing that to this day. They're doing this. I brought up on twitter. One time. And i got like shit from people really because i go. I think it's time for the clubs to just change the default rates only because these have been the rates. I thirty five years. How not they just have gotten away with that. And all i did was go like you want the you want these future headliners to be able to make a living doing time about getting rich just like just to gain high do you know what can you buy an features. Pay one hundred dollars a show and they don't carry take care of your airfare so if you have to get on a plane to feature somewhere you're netting like a hundred dollars for the week not so but then people were like why. Don't you start accommodating. I was like okay so yeah it was like i think it's like worth discussing you know but whatever they just don't so win in austin because you you're one of the guys i i just found this great like i told you my north star when i met with my team right. Who do you wanna be. You know in like five. Ten years ago north star. Wow yeah you're gonna break my left arm. I wanna tear pallor tendon.

One of the fighting is there's i think there's four things that a lot of inherently think that they're good at and we've done all was fighting being funny fighting's fucking and driving correct men think inherently good driver a lot you know. They think that they're funny or threatened by you've they think you are yup Dudes is how could of fight. And they're like. I can't tell you how many times i've been at zoo culture. I've had like youtubers. Come up to like. I think it'd beat up floyd mayweather. Yeah yeah no doubt do do do that do that though. Yeah but go do that. Yeah yeah well. People don't understand what a train like the difference between a trained fighter and like somebody who's just athletic and can throw a haymaker. There's that but insane thing with comedy too. It's like the family barbecue to put a set together. Relate to a crowd you that doesn't know who you are is different and it's just totally because people ask me that to like a lot of times guys will be like i'm funniest shit. They always boast about like funny. Fuck man. have you ever said on your life. I've never said the now. Now never. And i also i i'll. I'll never argue against someone who doesn't find me funny either. Someone's like i don't find great. Will it all the time like the. Obviously the biggest guy in the world can get all of it but anytime you have. Success people in kemalic is not funny with kevin hart and he's not flying. Oh he's not weird. He's the biggest own comic of all time. Yeah so. I mean the year after year. Thinks he's funny awesome. Yeah yeah. I mean yeah you have to kind of. You're not going anywhere. My bank count begs. It's you have to go. I'll play to the people who think i am. I don't see any of it. Your social media guy like you know how like rogue and say. I don't see it. When i say i don't see it. I don't see anything that's good. I post and i get the fuck out. Isolated doing nothing. It's hard to you. Don't did you ever find like looking at it. Hard to resist. 'cause i that natural thing that's hard to resist when i first got on your years ago because you know it's i think we all did. We got on there and i post nude read. How go and then. Once i realized like all these opinions. I'm like oh. This isn't healthy. And i found myself like my kid would be swimming and i'd be like on instagram staring at other people's shitty lives or where the fuck they're doing them i think. What am i doing dude. Yeah so it was again as my kid. I was like. Oh this is just a waste of time and like i've never got a advice on them like that's great advice to use them myself. Thank you never improve my ever. Never saw i'm why. Am i going so much tension side just got out of it. It's got the probably one of the healthiest things you can do. How much do. But i doubt man i noticed. Sometimes i'll get busy enough. That i'm not looking. Yeah hosting it also and i'll be like oh my god like four days of gone by and i didn't posted and i'm like i felt good. I felt good. If someone talk shit about me like you know my brother one of my boys well you see this guy talk to you about you know. Tony said don't don't show me is account. I don't wanna know. I don't need to know whoever's doing it. They just want attention. Itis of course here for these guys. The guy i repeatedly hear the The thing that guy will go. I'm really funny. I can make you know my friends laugh. Like he was was was the difference between me being funny and like being a comedian. I'm like well the differences you are. You're being funny to like someone you're talking to and being funny to an audience but you have to communicate it to a large donahue. You are hit the references. You know the whole yeah. It's like and then as i. I can't believe that that person asking it doesn't put that together and they're like. oh yeah. i never thought you'd never thought of them. Adding this shows me that you're never gonna make even avenue even start or it's like the other one that i've heard dozens. I can't believe every time. I've heard that somebody goes like i have like fucking forty five minutes of material but i've never done it. I'm like you have forty five. And they're like. I used to have like pages this shit and that good i'm like and then you said you had beyond the road get on stage. Do the do that hot. Forty nine states. I mean do do it all. Yeah and they're like what. I need to get open mic invite. Everybody people come out and see. That's probably really good first. Time is your plan when you get to austin or are you going to be again because you weren't like popping up at the store proper factor here there you same shit build our on the road so i have your podcast. Yeah i have an hour. And i've been doing. I have done some spots in austin and like this week. I'm in l. a. Done three four spots this week here just like we're jam in the van. I i'm i'm doing What's it called I did supernova couple times. Best shows great best show in l. a. I think right now. I'm doing the store tonight. doing a supernova again tomorrow. So it's a like doing those spots. And then yeah like there's more shows popping up in austin so i'll keep doing those key pod but i'll i'll like i'm flying back here a number of times and then you know i my already. I've been on the road. So i'll keep doing the road. Might my tour starts in august so you know. Just be boy tour. Yeah long tour. Yeah i just you know. With with austin i get there and rogan's gonna open up a place like that but you guys are out of your mind things to be better nelly. Just i don't think that. I i never really thought of it as like it's going to be better do really because we hear it all the time austin this last night. I'm like your i. I'm more of a san antonio guy loves antonio gonna move. Yeah and whenever. I even talked to you about this like in the higher the pandemic and everybody's leaving frantic and you know. La's north korea and bob watkins locked down here. I started looking at property out there. And i'm like man i just can't i'm just not ready and go on like you could move to iraq and be fine. You know what. I'm saying but these other guys farm like bro you guys making. La you make it up there. I can get up eight times. Hairdo going nine different major podcasts. Waiting to you what do you do you just going to bank on gern brogan. Then ain't the move. I don't know. I mean i feel like in the short time that i've been there You know i've met some great local people like in texas but also love great people. But like i met local comics and then people that have moved their like recently. I do think we'll see a few more people move. And maybe some like establish people move there and then like you know the scene becomes what like what it is but it's good for everybody if it becomes another hub it'd be great. I mean you know ultimately like if if awesome becomes like a really great comedy scene. It's good for comedies lakers come. It's not like it's bad for la it's only competition. No no no. But i mean yeah of course like you. Hilarious i got. I was walking down. The street and paparazzi was everywhere in oss. No no he here here and this guy was when i was like what's up man. He's like. I thought you moved to austin. I was like i did. I got on an airplane. Yeah crazy i'm playing. And then he was like all right. I just kind of gave him like the horns. I turn this way tax. And then they can. I turn the corner and they ran and they surrounded me right and i was like. Is this a bit. Yeah and then the an punk. Yeah and then these you start asking about the comedy in there. Like is austin now better than a like. Are you guys for real.

Joe helped me out. They did what they sat in. Or they yeah. They sat in for multiple. So it's really guys called me any need. Let us know man and they would show you know forever in debt to josh josh wolff. That's nice guys. I wanted to stay away from your show really hurt my feelings. That's interesting. why would they wanna to from you. Though i think just because a ton of the paul like maybe optics of it you know. Maybe they have demons in their closet. Guy i don't wanna be headed. I think it probably this whole year when like people getting shit for different reasons and canceled canceled in whatever It makes everybody think of like their own worst thing they've ever done and then probably puts them on like i think so you know on their heels like like i think with that off see that stuff happened. The pandemic people move in. It's like the days of all of us like at the store at the same time those everyone's having a great time. We're all doing each other's podcasts. Like i was just talking about this the other day. We're both in miami. And i was working for showtime that floyd Logan i gotta ask you about this. We'll get to that. And then he was hosting the cryptocurrency stuff. Yeah hilarie hilarious. The perfect person who rose. He's so fucking funny. Tim right yeah. Of course the best. he's hilarious. he's blown up to. Yeah he's the best bus tamin we're talking about just the dynamics of like the the that kinda crew as a guy everyone's on islands now man it owns on islands. We're all doing our own thing. Yeah those days of us together. Don't he runs on their own island own shit you got to but the cool thing is when when we maintain this of like the you know the brotherhood of like dude. I any major decision. I make i text you burt. Rogan like yeah. I like that we all stay connected like that and i and i have always you know. I'll get burned out sometimes of comedy. But i don't get burned out of comedians meaning. I could be like. I don't need to watch anyone. Do stand up. Yeah but i love comics. I love to hang. Yeah the hanging. And i i enjoy like those phone calls view. Anybody being like whether it's talking about business whether it's talking about joke writing. I enjoy it. I love that thing that has naturally built over the years. You know you're my north star. And so when i was going to start my network you better. We talked about it a lot. That goes into a lot. Yeah and you know. Everyone's telling me the best things about like. I'll do it. I'll do it. And i'm like fucking down at doon. Y'all tom yeah any talk somebody. Who's we talked about the good and the bad and yeah. Yeah and i mean. This is a different animal. It's a different animal. Yeah oh yeah. So i got to ask you about this. So i watched the floyd logan paul But you were there is working. Yeah i was like the logan paul specialist. He's a buddy he's buddy buddy. Big athletic kid big athletic. Here's what's crazy about that is i. Don't think people understand like floyd. We know he makes jillion dollars. Yes stuff but that's that's his thing. So when when floyd does a paper off showtime is the cameras and produces it. When i say floyd has the sign off on everything and he knows the camera angles. The walkouts the saw from detailed a detailed. I've never seen anybody so detailed in my life ever ever ever ever with through any Any profession when i sit in there and you know before the fight we do. You know the fire meetings. We see floyd discounting me can meet trim. And then he's walking out eighteen minutes after and you're just like hold on that point for me to work that he had okay really. Oh yeah so everything. He signs off on everything every single thing. He's a businessman like dude. That's his shit. He wants to make sure of the The report that he gets fifty percent of pay per view on something like that. It's a lot of fucking money for that. He's a monster monster. But so i just asked. What are you a fan of this. Like logan floyd jake. Paul would go into as a fan. I held him at all the polls. I don't know them personally. In any way i've known who they are for a number of years from level of closeness because you were like neighbor live like a mile from so i i had no idea so i'd i'd never followed their stuff. Knew that you know they would get like a lot of attention. And i would catch wind of that then i saw the i i. I'm trying to think of like the. I got real excited. When i heard that tyson was going to do the roy jones thing interesting because it was excited because it was mike tyson and like just being going back the nostalgia of being a kid and literally thinking. That guy was like superman you know like the baddest man on the planet and i was like really and and also seeing that he was training again for so i was like because he looked crazy in his pre. And what did you think of the fight. Terrible terrible but i mean so i got more excited for logan taken a chance that mike tyson come about well an older guys come back and like what's going on well like what bad decision but also make you gotta come back. Roy was not did not look like he's trained for it pretty soft. He didn't look great. No his life insurance by pretty i. Yeah and and i was like But then they also weren't hitting the face is like jones bat which is whatever whatever billion paul floyd. You're like all right. Well then. I saw jake faith the venezuelan not. I didn't see him five ben. I saw Nate robertson isn't dude. And i go from being from the little bit of boxing training that i've had and i was like this it scream to me Amateur energy of like yet. Because he would he would run towards him. And i could see that the adrenaline was taking over and he was just trying to any idea what he's doing he was trying to scrappy. Streetfight like i'll fuck it into work and not boxing like not even national not a professional good bear. Here's what's interesting like. I knew he was again. I didn't think you'd get fucking highlight. Reel knockout. i knew going to lose. 'cause i got word going to fight like eighteen spar i went. What am i guess. Yeah he didn't smart. Why unlike what see. That's that's the that to me streams. I'm i'm a great athlete and that will translate to everything which is clearly it doesn't. He is a phenomenal athlete. Fighting's different fighting assisted. They're not usually a especially the top guys like you know. They're not running four fours in the forties. Not forty inch vertical. Like having close but the skills but he's obviously not appreciating that right like you watch that you like. He thinks which is weird. That i can just go in. This has great level account. Whisper near like damned host burns bar just like tear worry but people were like. You're you're a bad. You'll beat this person because he was like a better who did learn from that was shadow. Joe cinco so. When i remember when i was doing the way in those doing the show for that and chad. Ocho cinco de house keys on this car like yeah. Do you get the notes ghana. And they're like he's fighting. This guy from bareknuckle michael. That's a two. Why would you match up with the guy who's been bare knuckle like i'm crazy. I wanna find bareknuckle that those guys are fucking savages. Yeah and they're like. Yeah he lost on but still yeah. When these amplifiers usually the toughest guy wins the top sky. Technique goes out the window. Though i saw chatting. There's don't faint like using the footwork. Oh he took this serious serious serious. Yeah you could tell everything about nate in that fight screamed Extreme anxiety apprehension freaked freaked out to be in there and had crazy energy and he was just like trying to like leaning on you. He was thinking it almost seemed like he wanted to. Just grab the guy in bacchus. Yeah anyways we all know how that ended. And i was like well. This was kind of ridiculous fun though fun. Yeah i mean seeing the means were great For him but he's expert but then they ask her thing i i. I didn't watch the fight. I just remember the lead up like the the aspirin who i didn't know at all was kind of hilarious going into these great shit talker panzer great tonight. Anything about him benza. Great do not even you know being ufc alumni. We're going root for the ufc guy. Over the youtuber. Yeah so. I've been on my show and we're talking and he the thing rows. He might be in trouble is he. Goes you know if youtuber man he does but if he can block them fuck and i was like he's 'cause i can't box really. Yeah yeah all right. And then i remember leaving them like that's weird and then i was in miami doing shows. I was on tour at miami improv. In us at this hotel in your favor walked in. You know you're right and your goes dude. I heard you being rogan debating. A band verse jake. And i'm like deep but look it bends credential. He's been the monsters in this youtube. We don't only think about him and brogan was the first one he's like. did you. see the way hit nate. That was an accident. Yeah there's something going on there. I think yeah like setting up and county footwork and see and other cam. Maybe or just nate's real shitty but then was the hotel your came up to me. I gotta stop you and we're buddies. We just talked to you in these areas. Stop you dude. You gotta take more at jake and he goes. Have you seen his instagram. I on social media. I don't look at it us. I'm telling you you know fighting. Watch his sparring. Here's watch us and he brings it up hold it. That's jake does. Yeah and just from his like you could be fighting guys that work at starbucks but just the way. He's moving faints and then his timing and speed all the like this kid fucking fight is. I'm telling you man the kid. The kid s gill. Yeah he's a benz fucked. He's like. I don't want to say it out. But i'm telling he's in trouble. Sounds like i might be right. And they did ban. So ben's women. Ben was fighting more champion but his his skills that was more on the ground is just so it was on the national national champion in college. One basically the heisman of wrestling division one missouri. But he's a savage went on the olympic team and then Was world champion at one championship world. Champion and bella tour came via c. He was like probably fifty percent. When you had a bad hip he won one fight against robbie lawler yup merck by mazda but never that not a striker but he fought strikers and was able to figure them out but off the grappling can reliance boxing but once i saw him. Knock out benghazi character. Even though ben's on strike kicking the talent and then when they said you know he's fighting woodley. It's like that's a fucking fight to. Yeah that's a fight fight now. Wait is going to happen with that man. I think and i've had both them on the show so any. Ufc guy who fights when these paul brothers. They've won the lottery. Because you're getting paid the most you got paid to fight which is crazy which is nuts. It's not the problem it's the. Us's like you know features and hosts our. We still don't. Yeah yeah. whatever then there's but then there's like the one percent make glad connor like no you know what about these guys anyway. So for woodley. I get the home runs. You make more money's ever made there's a rematch clause. If jake would lose its on showtime's that's good for business thing with woodley and aren't bulbs even fighting woodley's losses last four fights but he still but he's you know he's been boxing since two thousand nine at wildcard like he's walked trained so he he's a hall of famer like what the fuck and featured docs but woodley has you know similar to me like while he was fighting he setting things up outside like you know he has a music career. He has a fucking alright cosa sean. Tmz he has his podcast he is. He is his blog. All this other stuff going on. So it's like ah in the afc and human says i just wasn't checked in so to fight comes down if woodley wants to win or not. He actually wants to fight. You have a finance. If he doesn't jake does have the capabilities of knock him out in the first round. Well that's what's crazy. That is crazy because he really does. I mean i gotta tell ya outside when i went to watch Logan paul mayweather thing. I was like. I mean this is what i wanna see what this is you know and i came out of actually going like i don't know man i have to say i tip my hat to logan dot com out with. Yeah i really did and how you can't though like you're smart dude. You tip your to but the so. There's this video. I know that he was online. And i went in the back. Lock from with logan. And i'll talk before the fight. His dad was so like. I think logan and jake. They grew up with cameras in their face. So the this main event and all these people watching they don't give a fuck that doesn't it doesn't faze him so on his locker room their job. You're on and ten military. Go back there you know cool in my head on my shit shelter sionist pants find floyd mayweather the best pounds brown box of all time. Like this never wanna fight. He's gonna be xinha's pants. So i'm trying to think things to saito column down. I get back to it dude. They're playing literally yoga music and he's just like like he's already gone stage like you didn't give a fuck and i go do what's wrong with you. Here's what you're you're nervous gifts and i were you. I'd say would on camera. But i feel nothing like i'm go out. Have fun. you find floyd mayweather dude. He's like i know crazy right. I will do it. It's not yet nerves. He has no. I've already wanted. he's like forty one. Fee knocks me out a youtuber who gives a fuck. Yeah he's like my. That's why i'm going into the into the ring within his dad. I see nervous. His dad comes over me. This advice i can give you your sons one You never have to go through this again. He's make more money doing this. He guys never have to go through again and floats a smaller guy. He's older sons. I can get flatlined like nathanson. He might get hurt and stop pleasing. Be okay you guys aren't going to the hospital tonight. he's going to be trust. Me probably gonna be okay. Thank you so much man. I'm telling you can be fun. Yeah you're thinking he's fighting france gano like he's fighting like file fucking gravies. Find deontay wilder. I'll tell you what. I would set up francis and gun or deontay wilder against bert. I would tell parents like listen. He's gonna leave here on stretch. It's gonna be really bad but if you can take out a policy where he can get one of those things where his is can look at the letters on board and then the speaker was china to for the rest of his life. Not me. he's gonna be he's never do stand up again. It's okay. he's never going to stand up but he won't have to do this ever again. You say he's never done. Stand up again. No he's never gonna be able to stay up. You'll never he's never gonna walk. You lay down forever. But we're here. Those guys would literally like could kill outdid nightmare nightmare and gone. Who seems like a nightmare of person dividing do big fucking guy. Yeah my god and the punches. He's so yeah it's crazy it's crazy deontay was with showtime forever and i'd have to interview Deontay wilder and he's he's a. He's a passionate during his speech. Well listen to but was like man. This fight is stupid stupendous. It's not a word power and thrown from alabama obama. I that might work there. And i don't call racist wind power through their case dependent. Yeah the stupendous doubt. We heard here. I do pendle. You guys got hit a lot man. You got your fine say whatever you wanna say that whole thing is going to. I mean it feels like it's going to keep growing the keeps going conversation with you. Always got to follow the money though and that's why showtimes involved with of course. I think he goes as far as jake. Jake if jake would deluged a woodley. The do the rematch. Fear lose both times. I don't know if it sticks around but then there's going to be somebody else who goes. I don't mean to really no one else it depends. How like how how it ends for them depends field because it feels like if jake the parallels while you rather youtubers like fuck stand up. Parallel is you know actors and stuff. They show whatever they're not at the height of their acting fame and then they go. I'm doing stand up and you know you see them on the calendars guys stand up. But he found a way and it feels like this is like that equivalent of like. You're not a pro. You're not a boxer a fighter but they're like yeah but i could get people to pay to watch for a short while. Yeah for sure the difference with him. It's like those actors like they're not. They're not grinding with us on the road. Just doing it to cover their fucking malibu house doing it because they love standup. Jake and logan love box. Do fucking levin. They've dedicated their lives to. It's right. there might be something here. They got to keep winning and they're doing that all while continuing to do what they do on youtube or no because they're not really like joe do a little bit but they're not doing like they've logged. We're doing all that shit and this is this you know again. You don't know logan but he again smart kidman now. This stuff is by accident. Logan's smart fucking dude get so twenty six and doing zero and so you know. He's made some mistakes no doubt i don't defend his mistakes but you know he was like no one's taking risks doing these logs at this real like young crowd and then he's like i'm gonna start a podcast because like i want to talk about g get to know me instead of just you know this character idea to so we started the podcast impulsive podcast in the world and now i think a lot of people like oh shit. He's not an idiot right. This is a normal dude. What's it's and then he and then he also you know i'll getting come save for that so he doesn't have to do all this crazy. Wild shit right force. In japan and chick smart smart smart move. Yeah but with him last point than we can get off fucking nuts when you know why some before the fight talk to him. And i said for you just to not get knocked down. Four rounds is a wind dude here going into this. I want you know like if didn't last four rounds the best of all time with your experience. This is a win. you think. 'cause i've heard people say this i don't know if that's exactly we're looking at people. Go like Floyd knocked him out and then carried them. It's like he wasn't knock now at. I'm telling you. I was like if if that cameras the ring. My seat was closer. I was fucking there but you know the the boss. No yeah i was like i saw logan like trying to give them to carry his weight. Yes that was logan's game plan right in the bigger guy. Get them to carry solve that. Lean on him a lot. Trust me floyd knock him out. Yeah he's not gonna let them do that. He would have brushed him off. He went to help them up. There's no reason to do that. I thought floyd 'cause i start to see him work. The body experience of the world class. My prediction was fourth round. Stops him due to body shots. If you're not really views give them a few. But then you know the problem there. Is you got a big young kid. Twenty six years old way. Bigger floyd forty-four. I've you know i've been around floyd. He looked forty four men yet. I remember cinnamon locker. Oh wow he's forty four years old right and he looks at and this is a problem right meaning. He's not like he'll win like guys.

The Fine Art of Parenting

"Hey welcome everybody. It's Britain here. Yeah welcome back to our podcast. Keeping kissel where's your diddy? Yeah yeah welcome to keep an ad council might have to close that door for science okay so today we are talking kids. I'm excited for this. But before ceases you know I do want to do a little bit of business. Make sure everybody knows us on social media so follow me on instagram. Cecilia Kissel me on Instagram Brett. Kissel and US together keeping kissel keeping it. Kissel I N G and we're really really excited about everything that we are creating also on our website keeping it Kissel DOT com. So we're talking about kids and this is your expertise. When I grow up. I want to be country. New Grew Up. You want it to be a mom and I just need to tell you and start this episode off on this foot. I am the luckiest dad in the world because two parent with you. Wow our kids are so damn lucky to have you and I'm so lucky to parent with you because you are so good. Well that is so sweet I Will back up and say I am no expert. Everything I do is a trial and error and the things that work you keep the things. Don't get rid of otherwise All we can do our best. That's right yeah. So that's what we're doing. I don't know exactly what we're going to title this episode. By the time you've clicked on this there is a title. I'm thinking I'm kind of thinking I want to go with the flow in just feel it out I I had written down This story that I want to tell you about So that's how a lot of this inspiration goes and flows is we will have an experience and I will have to write down said experience because they either want to share it with Brett It was in the moment and I WanNa talk about it and I don't WanNa forget it or I'll be laying in bed later You know processing the day so Let's talk discipline. What do we do when the kids act up? We count to three and if they're not doing what we need them to do within that time then they go to time out. And there's usually a tantrum and time out but I mean it is what it is We kind of look at it as you have a choice to the extreme tantrums laying on the floor has been a little bit. No you're right doesn't take extreme. She cries she'll sit urge but she will lay on the floor or she'll cry Those kinds of things meal wasn't so much like that. She would protest and not want to be there but Oftentimes she was the or that would be like. Oh fine you know like I tell. People thought it was funny because I would say. Go to time out and she would go if for her wasn't a fight Arias different spirit though in addition different nature As far as that goes. Here's the thing for me as a dad. I don't know if other dads can relate are their moms can relate my kids when they cry or Pout or get mad. Because they don't know any swear words and they don't really know how to articulate how they feel. Yeah I find it so funny. Yeah like I don't have to hide your face because Oh my gosh. We have little toddler terrorists on her hands. Yeah I think that like you know the funniest all the shot and reo just cry. These big big. I've never had anybody cry. Actual physical bigger tears me than me. What's exactly where she gets it from yours you. She is two years old and they're the size of dimes when you cry a tear. It's the size of a looney literally. Yeah Yeah I'm not going to disagree with you without being. I don't know how all of you feel about this but in our home we have When it comes to sharing we kind of have like or not sharing. We have a no tolerance for not sharing I know we've kind of touched on this Over my socials before and just your feelings or thoughts your guys is feelings or thoughts on the subject and a lot of you've brought up some really great points about sharing and Things that maybe should be special or kept special for the kids or respected and I totally agree and I totally We have certain things that definitely are for that our special that this is. Leo's this is Arias this meals but they still share is like to share it to a degree. Yes sleep with their stuffy. No but it's kind of like You can look at it and you're giving someone an opportunity you know like it's a supervised exchange now. Why was that important to you 'cause you're finally shared everything correct. Yeah I grew up sharing and I'm a great share as an adult. I don't know I'm not going to judge you if you're not that's not that's not at all. I just think that like sharing such a beautiful part of this world and when you do share The return on that is In my experience has always been awesome. Well I grew up in a house where there was. No sharing introduced Jameson. 's This was mine. Don't think about touching his. Don't think about touching his sports stuff. Don't play sports games. Don't touch my guitar. Don't touch my Lego. But you're fairly a good share. I love to share. Yeah I wanted nothing more than to actually play with my brother. Yeah and to do a bunch of things but it was just never encouraged encouraged or even in. We really encourage that. We don't even force our kids. We're like hey share with your sister or trade. If they want this you give them something else and then when they get a little yeah once they get a little bit older so we kind of Worded as taking turns for sure Miss taking turns in what's mine. Yeah it is yours but it feels really good. Yeah it feels really good to To share and to allow someone else to love up on your your Your thing to now you were. You were reading Von. Calling a child calling your bluff as meal out. It goes into And the reason I started with sharing is something that would happen. That was common Is Girls struggling over the same toy? This is super common and My thing is usually like I would say something like girls. If you can't share that toy then I'm GonNa take it away and in the past like that worked but then they kind of wised up to it and then some of my friends may hear me say like if you guys cannot share that toy it's going in the trash and for me. It was like anything that causes separation and does not cause. Unity is not long for this world so I might as well get rid of IT MYSELF. And so I'll tell the girls sat and they kinda called my bluff on it once with This random little mermaid and I they were going at it and would not and I kept saying and I finally was like crap I said I have to throw it in the garbage. This is not stopping. And if if any of you parents out there know anything about disciplining when it leaves your lips you commit. Yeah you gotta follow through got to commit. It's the counting thing one. Two three three is whether you want it or not in it. Be careful what you attached to that number three because come three better be prepared for sure. To pay up your. It's it's way harder on me than some of the things that he said. I'm like if it wasn't for you. I would be the parent though to go. Three three and a half. Four seven eight nine. I'm getting I'm going to keep the ten. Yeah but you do a great job keeping me in check. I mean it's just our children and check. Everybody needs it every once in a while. So anyways that particular time I I threw that DOLLY IN THE GARBAGE. I did I. Did it. Not Ashamed set and I did it until they get back later. Nope it's gone just trash long gone. And what happened dump? No Job After that for like I want to say a good six months when the girls would be going at it and I would say count to three and if you girls don't cut it out moms taken it and it's going in the garbage meal would like lob it at hers you take it. I don't want it in the garbage. I WANNA play with his toy Like it psalm problems. What was funny a funny memory? I have of Mula. Naria is that Aria has been so chill for so long but I think meal used to that. Yeah so as they were. Both growing. Aria didn't want conflict or just simply didn't care. Yeah League we try to discipline Mula about not sharing or something and would go here. You go here you go. So there's a lesson on that Arias playing with a meal without maybe even asking would be like I want that toy and say no mealy you need to share and the meal so are as like shirt here you go so it was very difficult for me but now Arias older. She's in a new phase and she's in a new phase where she's tougher. Yeah she I want old onto. No I want it. Yeah no I wanted to get him out at times. We've heard those words in our houses like La- almost mind-numbing you're not going to lie to you But anyways here goes. Arias older fast forward six months and they're fighting over a toy and I say my famous line if you guys can't get along and if you can't share it's going to go in the garbage and Arya turns around and she says she stares me dead in the is she goes here. Go ahead Oh. She's cold the hell. Do you do with that? How do you punish someone who's like above it? She's doing like the balls seriously yes. He called me bluff and I stopped. I stopped in my Tracks House. Would you do? I stopped tracks You know I asked her. I said Aria. Are you sure you sure you can't share with your sister. Give her a turn. She goes no Mama. I want you to put it in the garbage. Some psychologist smarted. Me IS GONNA listen to this and be like well. It's because of this and this is the reason Mrs what's going. I don't have a clue what she was thinking of. What why she's getting a kick out. I think I think we've is like no no not at all. I think perspective was like I dare. You won't even and another another Moment it would be like. Raf You don't stop you're going to time out. And she say I want to go to time out and she'd walk over and tunnel wasn't even a fun. Play the stairs like yeah take me. Go ahead like yeah. I don't know what that means or what that's going to turn into her lead into and that's where well I guess I could be more supportive practice find that should I really do. I wonder if through the process of US podcasting. I hope that it actually becomes enough of a community that we can ask for other stories similar stories because we do especially me all learn a lot from what people will post. If I do ask a question it's because I genuinely want to know what you do in a scenario like I'm describing right and in a situation like this. The purpose of a consequence is that they're not loving it so if somebody's not affected by the consequence then what what are you. What are your? Do you remember the Russell Peter? Skit which one k where Russell Peters comes home yet Buddy Ryan in school said Oh yeah I just tell my parents to f. off and he's like a seven year old yet Or ten years does that to his dad is like do the dishes. Listen to Ryan said and I said a few and he says. Excuse me hurt real bad. Yeah get comes into play but that had never really happened to me and my family but like I never as a little kid never bucked. The system with my mom wasn't until I got to become a teenager right well. I think that's when that we talked about this. That's when that transition happens when you start to comment or Processing and you're you're becoming your mind is becoming. Its own version of an adult self in. Its wait a minute to do this or I don't agree with you. Know like you're all of a sudden right now it's like nobody really has freedom we are. We are in control. So it's like you lead. We follow you lied. We follow and at some point. They start to question. And if and if your answers are because I'm the adult or if your answers don't align with their little souls because they come into this onto this planet with their own soul That's when things start to and that was something that had to go sideways nuts as a teenager was it's because it's the way it is because I said so because I'm the boss which I get I get some of the value. Do you know where the most part do you like? Some really just respect. Though you just respect the parent respect the elder to a certain degree. Or it's like I don't want to explain. Don't need to explain. I just needed done but then you would say that. I don't want to explain correct. That's a better house was just over us. Oh I know under no circumstances. That's a common challenge something or even give it only to help. I want to ask. I just wanted to devise a question. Viewed as a challenge and not gaining understanding in perspective. It's all depends on how the question was presented. I believe to a degree as a teenager teenager. I would have posed a challenge in the way of snotty question but for over analyze so many things. Clench a child how to ask a question. It's not going to be snotty nosed and if you answer a child's question they will be satisfied in my opinion right. Do you find from your experience. Like with the kids answering their questions do they. Stop asking absolutely one hundred percent. No LONGER MOM. Mom Dad you take a moment you get down on their level you tell them what is expected of them. What we're going to do Doesn't mean they always do it The way you'd hoped or whatever but it seems to stop the Y. Y Y and it definitely seems to have stopped the whining on the topic of raising. Good kids yes in this day and age. Let me just preface. That good is subjective. Those different from good to somebody else. There's also a terminally in different ways to Peel an apple. Cut Up an apple so How someone does that There are a million different ways to do that. So so you believe that discipline consequence all of those actually have to do with the human with the kid so give different consequential for the individual based on their their needs absolutely. Yep Yeah I think I think The way you raise each child the heartbeat heartbeat. The core might be the same but the subtle differences are water tailored to that individual child now in the way that you grew up in your upbringing. Yeah I'm always fascinated as to why and how you're so good at this. You're add wet at raising humans. Your gentle irrational. You're extremely caring loving compassionate and you're passionate about the craft of being among. Why are you so good at that so good? I appreciate you saying all those things I don't. I don't know that I would necessarily feel that way. I mean all I can do is my very best. I'll say that till the end end of my days But for parenting for me I think when I think about this is okay. We're talking about how we just keep going serious serious serious and I don't know if we ever will go like light We'll get to the fun. I'm don't know but but what I was going to say when I think about parenting our kids I actually imagined myself as my own fourth child and I know that it's going to sound really really strange but I think I think about what I needed when I was a child right and when I think about that I think about the patients. The understanding The level of the things I didn't get and I almost see my inner child as child number four trailing along and I get to repair it myself I get to relive experiences. Might enter child gets to do all these wonderful things that we've Curated carved out and created for our children. I've never decorated gingerbread house in my life until this winter till this Christmas I have others million. There's a million things that I have never done and I'm doing for the first time in. My inner child is very pleased. Do you have goals for your kids? Happy just happy. That's it because I'm I am putting a lot more weight and emphasis unhappiness than I ever have especially with. Yes a world where people talk about mental health and all is very extreme issues. Yes my goal prior to having kids or even when meal o. Was born until I really dove down deep into how you approach things because I'm so impressed by and inspired by it right. My number one goal was ambition. You just want me. I remember that useful and I want them to be ambitious but you said that she was actually out of out of fear for laziness of course so but I think I think if we see someone as lazy sometimes that can be a judgment If somebody is living in a shack and they have a dog and they have two plates and their whole most homeless to some but to others would just be like a total hermit recluse flower child. Whatever it's like Y is that person considered lazy. They are happier than the hills. Yep whose businesses. That is your right if you're happy you're happy if you're not happy in that situation and the environment than something needs to change but if you're happy leave him alone. They found the secret to life happiness. Yeah my opinion. I don't know that's cease again. That's so profound and I think that's year opinion has changed. It has happiness now. Is the number one priority. Because I've seen so many families that have every material thing yeah jobs holidays vehicles wealth beyond belief. And if there's no happiness or heart yeah not home yet. I think we all put as a matter. Not We all but I think as a society. We can put unrealistic expectations. Yeah and really it comes down to. What do you want? What do you want when Brett Wilson and I did our Trip to Mexico building homes. Yes the happiness and contentment that The family one of the families. Like my my family's Breakfast Brett. As you know the homebuilding our family they lived in a Crown. Victoria car No TIRES YEAH. Just flat underground. Swear the DAD and the three kids they might lift and yet they were happy because they had enough to buy some food and it was better than how the parents grew up so they were happy that their kids when we built them. The House hadn't apparently simply whatever's more poor than living in a in a rundown crowned nineteen So that also changed things for me back in two thousand seventeen that if someone can be happy with what society says is nothing yet or below every bit of standard then that if they can be happy then we should focus a lot more of our time to actually be grateful and actually be happy with what we both what we have because we live very abundant life. Gratitude changes everything. Yeah so back to Aria calling your bluff. I'm sure people are wondering how she done that again. She had a shield your own often than me La. She had it going. I think a for a good couple weeks where I was just like I would say my my consequence and she would say here and I would freeze yup give it to me lay on me thick. Go ahead Mama. There was no resistance So definitely threw me for a loop But you know ultimately. It's like that I would put her in timeout and sometimes she would get emotional because it was just like literally calling my bluff. She's just so stinking smart that little girl but as of late consequences are back on the table As being not fun so things are things are back in order but it definitely through. Meal is a very Obedient child she. S and Aria is a tear all great kids. They're incredibly great kids but as their personalities Start to shine you start to see their different quirks and different ideas and Yeah it just made me think like maybe Arya will be one of those people who doesn't take things personally in his just like. Yeah sure Go from strength to how actually grow up so that if bullying comes her way or what have you in school. Heaven forbid just let it roll off and it's funny because People knowing our kids people who know them would probably think because meals like loud and out there and social and outgoing that she would be the one that's more bucky She's the one so for example. She's the one who would say. Can I have this cookie? Oh Mom can I have this cookie but can I have this cookie? Arias the one you turn around. And she's got her hand in the cookie jar and she's already three cookies deep the like she knows she's crowded sneaky and she's quiet and And then new catcher and she would giggle and think it's hysterical that like she got away with it. I although I mean as we wrap up this segment up I we call our kids loophole children especially me Lula. She's loophole baby. She just figured. I'm the loophole baby. Yeah we'll because you'll lay your boundary and she'll fig like she's the kid who you're like no you cannot have that green eminem. Because that's what's in her hand and she'd come back and she got one in her mouth. What did I say will? It's mom like she's that kid she's just well you're not wrong. Yeah like at that. Point d you celebrate their that intelligent more. Do you explain that. That's not what you meant. Yeah I don't know I don't know the answer to that. Help us out here. A part of me is like I appreciate the I do too. I do too so it's like I want. I joke often that I don't want to This is gonNA sound so silly but even if the kids are like playing with their food at the dinner table and some people. Don't play with your food. I go back and forth on the like what if it inspires are to be some kind of like incredible inventor and now I just crushed that never know anyways you wanted like there's a fine line between supporting and Raising them up to be the best that they can be at while not crushing their spirit and still laying boundaries.

That's different right like that's more like you think you're funny. I'm funny let me tell you something. That's more or less family whereas other people are trying to be a little bit of demeaning and they're trying to be like strangers or more like in a demeaning way like I'll be the judge of if you're funnier not give me a joke. Oh my God Joe. Oh my good school reunions or something like that. Yeah good well. We'll see oh shoot. I think might be cancelled. We have one in. It was may fifteen sixteen weekend. I don't think it's going to happen. But you're like you went to school out east Montreal Montreal Okay Okay. I was thinking like the the maritimes or something Born in New Brunswick until the age of two I was in New Brunswick. Don't thing about it how did you how did your family end up in New Brunswick in the first place. My Dad went from Pakistan to Leeds in England and warm leads to I guess scholarships teaching positions that kind of stuff. He only got into places in in north. America was in New Jersey. I believe Paterson New Jersey and one was Fredericton New Brunswick while he he was an English teacher and you wanted to wanted to teach English and and and get his PhD. And all that and I guess one family member was like Canada is friendlier or something like this Canada's The you know I always think about that. Like how different. Yeah Yeah exactly. Who would I been for sure? I wouldn't have been a comedian who I would have been surrounded by what might might vibes value with a bit. Even my dad my dad would have been a different person right so I wouldn't. How should yeah? So you've been at What we do in this week at CBC? You were doing the As it happened I was filling in on as it happens. I just got a tweet from somebody five minutes ago saying is there any show Ali? Hassan does not fill in on and There's no telling if that's a compliment oriented super annoyed with me. But they're sick of your voice. Yeah exactly exactly do you. Do you have to because as it happens is not obvious comedy. Show I dare. Does your voice changed. You have to approach it in a different way like all these different shows that you do. Yeah Yeah I would not have thought that that's a thing but laugh out loud is very different from Q. Is Very different from as it happens is very different from here and now here now is the drive home show in Toronto. I don't you know depending on where your listeners Trying Yeah Yeah. It's the most popular drive home show In in all of Toronto which is saying something you know. There's a lot of different radio stations. If people could June into big one several hundred thousand people listened and that one. I'm probably most myself. I'm literally the zero performance. Happening there But I'm like an octopus and could continuously to this person this person sheet from this personnel. We just got this cancel though this. It's it's high energy. There's a lot going on. It takes work to make it sound like it's just an average an average radio show calm and all that you know but the ducks are moving quickly. Under the water dexsa legs are were workout quickly. Under the laugh out loud has to be a bit of a performance has to be. It can't be. It can't be earnest you know. It's a comedy show Campanella guys. Thanks for tuning in. We're GONNA play some comedy you know. I'm not I'm not I can't be like jazz. Fan My gotTa be known to welcome to the shade has to be a little high. Energy has to be a little bit. Different is well. There's parts that are as it happens. The trickiest thing the trickiest as it happens is the hard left turns because at one point you're talking about what was the thing we did yesterday. some guy who lost his hard hat five years ago. He lost his And today's about Zam a guy who Who who got this thing called a toe in collect machine for goose poop and started cussing if the poop Zamboni yes and the company Zamboni called him and said Hey. You might not using our name associated with feces. So that's one story. And then the next story is about deaths from the corona virus in Italy so your energy is like constantly changing and listeners. Of coming all the time. Yeah yeah listeners. Come to expect it but for me it's like all my God. I went into this too happy. I should have been brought the energy down. You so yeah. It's very very interesting. How you got to wear. It's not like sometimes it's subtle. It's not always huge by is the same voice so besides doing as it happens. Your life has changed this past week or so it Both from Because you're a comedian. So there's gigs that you're always doing But then all stove is Scott cancelled. Yeah yeah everything is Dead By. Everything's Data I. There's no there's no pity party because I know people. In far worse conditions are so yeah yet with the exception of CBC working and that is not guaranteed by any means. You know. There's no idea when I'll be called in to fill in and make that guy on twitter annoyed again. I don't know when that's going to happen. But definitely all the comedy shows and comedy tours comedy for this stuff in July and August. That's been canceled because although sales at happened. Yeah 'cause they'll sales would have to happen now and people are not really buying stuff when they don't know what's going on you know three or four months from now and then there's another tour that I was going to be on September and October and it looks like that's GonNa hold as well because the clients had a sixty day window within two within which to cancel. Yeah and And that window is about twenty days from expiring and so within the next twenty days. They're probably going to be look. We just don't know what's going to be happening in the fall so we'll You know just on the one hand people might be like. We're GONNA need a laugh in the fall but if are also have some some people some people who know saying this is not even close to being over. We're not even at the worst of it. So yeah in a bit of a pickle you know. Yeah what are you GonNa? You're just not in charge of any of it. You know so and you and and and I'm guessing that based on your work with laugh out loud that you probably know tons of Comedians. That like you said you know. There's other people in worship. Oh yeah there's because I I know people who have two jobs one his standup comedy and the other is as a server in a restaurant or or cook in a restaurant. Both those are. They don't have position where they were able to accumulate enough to save they were. They were paycheck to paycheck. And it's not because of their own financial illiteracy or whatever it's just because of the opportunities they had in life and they were trying to make the most and what they had and they hadn't quite gotten around to like putting money aside just yet and So those guys like I'm more concerned for for for some of those friends that I have to be honest and it's not like you can plant for something like this right. Nobody plans for everybody. Stay at home. Don't talk to anybody for months. Exactly crazy you and me talking right now is just You don't even know what you're giving me. You don't even know what you're doing for me right now. It's great 'cause what I've been doing is I've been making a cooking videos. I was a chef for many years. So I'm cooking anyway. So let's short film. It now takes a different level of preparation and all this stuff and let me just film it so then at least you know the biggest complaint people always had about cooking. I just don't have the time I just don't have the time we got lots of time. Most people have time. Yeah There's that Combined with the fact that the grocery stores are the only places that are really open right now combined with the fact that Now more than ever we should be nourishing ourselves in positive ways you know build our immunity and stuff like that. Goddamn Zombie apocalypse out there. You know so All those things together and you know one of them skills. I have one of the few skills I have is cooking lenny. Start putting that is That is also an effort on my part to stay connected with community the community at large whatever community that might be might might little community. But it's not the same when it's coming in like. Hey Ali what do you do with how you make salary not taste shit? You know. That's that's not the same thing as you would meet talking. Otherwise got four kids wife. And that's that's wonderful but also A break where I could talk to somebody in the outside world this. Oh this is quite valuable to me. Oh well thank you. I mean you talking to me is is exciting to me. I wanted to ask you talked about cooking and from what I read about you. You got into comedy because of cooking. That's right so how right I I. I wanted to have a cooking show when I say I wanted to have a cooking show. That doesn't even quite cover it man. I had a singular focus in life and it was to be on the food network. Not even just any network. It was the Food Network Holy Grail. That's what I was going to do. That's all I wanted nothing else. Who's going to nothing else mattered? And so I started. Stand up comedy because I was like. Maybe I'll start you know getting up in front of audiences. I'll treat the audience. They're a studio audience. I'll build my might my confidence in front of a group of people make jokes about food. You know it was all about food. Everything served that. Yeah and and that's what I wanted and then and then as soon as I started doing comedy I got I got bit by that bug so to speak and I And that was that was all she wrote. I mean the flirting with production companies continued for a decade way where I was on the doorstep of getting a show so many times but it just it never panned out and Maybe that's for the best comedy has given me a ton although I probably have a J if I was on the food network right now I'd probably have a job but people are turning to the food network in large numbers right. Yeah so I mean both comedy. The both of those things that you've done in do are two things that that I can do. And so on the cooking side dish I made the other. I mean I don't even know how to pronounce what the Heck animate some Allu- or Newsday a Rogan Josh Carey in it which I thought was quite unnecessary looking for that. That's a bit much but I have no clue the weird thing was is. I was just looking for curry paste but then I saw like the only reason I remember. Rogan Josh is because of Joe Rogan. I look at Joe Joe Rogan curry paste at so. I founded so quickly at the grocery store the other day but cooking from me so I never went out of town for school and so my wife insists because of that. That's why I don't know how to cook. Because they never had to fend for myself. You know I went to school at York. University was an hour and a half commute and I would. Just come home and you know. Mum's cooking would be there. Whatever it was and And so there's been times in my life where I've tried to cook And I don't have so time is a thing and I can understand that but there's also like the patients of an understanding like what you need. Do like my wife saw what I made because now we need to more. We need to add more more of Joe Rogan curry paste. This is this. This was in her words. She goes to this for white people. We need to add more more for the Indian for the Indian tongue right. She's India's. Your background is Indian as well. Yeah both of us. Yeah Okay Yeah that goes neither of US cook not. You're just both getting into it. No I don't Cook. She does she does she. Does she was coming from a place of knowledge and taking a crap on your Saga Lou. Attempts that's right that's right so like this week. It's like everybody's GonNa Cook. I'm like what am I going to cook? I'll make like eggs an exit toast or something like that and then comedy I've been to like every time I go to New York and outside of this year. Well I did go to New York this year by Gorlic every year for work and I always end up going at least three three nights. I'll go to the comedy cellar. Yeah and of just started going to comedy shows in Toronto And I just love going to comedy shows in a behind this thing in the back of my mind that maybe I'll do like an open mic just once in my life. Just go up there do it. And it's over you know it's a bucket list for me but there's that fear of of just being what I would consider like you're you're naked on stage Looking for people's approval of what you're GONNA say sure. That's the that's the beauty and the horror of standup up comedy. There's no You know this is not like Improv or sketch. There's no yeah SOM- all there's no people to lean on this issue in the might and that's you either find super exciting and challenging and Yeah like something you WanNa do or you see that and you'll why would you? That's insane. Yeah you must have had like a strong desire for this cooking. Show to put yourself in. That position was a I did. There's no doubt about that but also I had for the the few years prior to To that day that I got on stage I would have been like April. Two thousand six prior to that. I was hosting weddings. Couple of weddings. A year friends would ask me. My cousin asked me to host. The wedding and Indian. Pakistani weddings are talking about four hundred five hundred people and I'm hosting these weddings and I'm finding myself getting less and less nervous and I'm treating them like my own sort of comedy show. I'm feeling like the Maestro up there and I think I can do this. I was I was less fearful because of that but then that night at the comedy the night I started the first day I was actually a I was pretty pretty nervous. It's a very common story but I did like A. I did a six minutes set in like three and a half minutes. I just went fast and every time people laugh that was like what is that noise. What's happening right now? It's just so much more intimate in a small comedy club. The comedy works was similar to the seller. Small low ceilings brick walls. It's like it's different. You know it's like people are there to see comedy this. Is You know I can fail in front of Supportive. Family and friends were there for a wedding. Fraud gathered that show. I remember after I got off stage. My knees almost just like buckle as I stepped offstage. My knees just went. Oh what did you just do what it was? It was a hell of a thrill. Did you WANNA go back right away like tomorrow night or next week? I Well this is very common with me and I always going to something hard or or not at all. Either I right now. I'm struggling with. I'm struggling with movie I WANNA I want to edit these videos as I'm filming at home these kinds of cooking videos and I when you said What what did you say you said? You didn't say you don't have the interest but you said something about cooking you don't have the I don't have the patience the patient Haitian so. That's where I'm at I. I also don't have the inclination but I also don't have the patience. I'm like I'll get somebody else to do it but now it's such a personal thing and like I should really learn this but I have the sheets for for making a video in stringing different things together my kids watch these youtubers and it's like a lot of moving parts man. There's a lot of like audio beds and clips and lot of different you know sliding in graphics and sliding in all kinds of different clips and other you know picture in picture sort of regional inserts and. I'm like this is a lot is what I would love for. Mind to look like but it's not going to for a long time. He and It's my own fault for not not ever doing it myself. You know when you say. Let somebody else do it. Just always been a believer in that but then but then sometimes you get overcome with this source of great guilt. And that's also what's happening in the house like being being just sort of like a handyman around the house. Yeah I'm all like I will pay somebody to do this work and then somebody goes. You know if you do it yourself. You can save three hundred bucks. I'm like I don't care about the three hundred I care about not having to be on my hands and knees doing grout in my In my shower or whatever the thing is you know. Yeah Yeah no. I did the same thing sky. The most useless handyman. You've ever seen because of the years of thinking that so you must do use that APP Jiffy. I don't know I'm gonNA write this down. I don't know no I don't use anything I want. I'm okay I'll I'll I'll send you or send you also there's this. There's this APP called Jiffy to Canadian APP and Literally the same thing I did. We had this grout in the bathroom. Ya I made that up. I mean but we do have to do that and I went on this APP an and I. This is what I needed done. And so you know you put in what you need done in your house you put in when you want it done and then the APP. Find Somebody for you okay. and that person and then you pay a flat fee for like an hour. That person comes in. They do the job and they're out you don't have to like tip them nothing. They don't bother you they don't you know they're not like a car mechanic saying aw there's fifteen other things that's wrong with your bathroom right okay. That's Hillary's and out and I'm I am the same way their stuff that I I don't know how to do this and I'll get someone else to do it. And even editing like these podcasts. Do Yeah so I started a new podcast at the beginning of this year called. Welcome to the music. And I've got a CO host for that and I am so lucky that my co host. He does the editing and he'll add in the music and play around with the sound levels and everything Because that's again I don't have that brain capacity Or even the interest to look after that stuff. I rather you know. Sit Down Whether it's skype or you know in a in a booth or in a restaurant or whatever it is and just chat with somebody and recorded and say okay here. I'M GONNA give this to the world and if somebody wants to clean it up by all means clean it up but let's get it out there you know Another thing I have in common with you. Itching shingles man great thing to have in common with each other. No but you had shingles on your face I had shingles on my forehead yet on your four and I consider myself lucky. Where did you did you on your back? Mine was yeah like the back front. Sorta thing while I'll tell you why you consider myself lucky because I have a certain level of vanity where I was like what is this. I gotta go get this fixing and I was told that I came in early enough that it wasn't too bad yet but it's definitely Shingles it still hurt like hell. I I watched my dad with with the shingles on his back and his his side's at every time he coughed. Yeah Or somebody made him laugh. He was on the phone. He's like don't you make me laugh? You son of a bitch like really really painful sit. He couldn't sleep properly coughing. Or whatever it was I didn't have that And I also went quickly if you had it on your back. I had it and I thought I'd gone to. This was at the beginning of the of whatever year it was maybe three years ago And had gone and I said okay. So it's the end of the early me go to the dentist a bunch of times. Let me go to you know. Get get bunch of massages you know because you want to take advantage of all your health benefits We initials in twenty twenty. No this was back maybe twenty seventeen two thousand eighteen so not so long ago and again I had heard of shingles but it was like an old person's disease like this. This doesn't happen till the kids like us right. And so exactly that was the whole thing. The auditors were shingles me and then the other one was that it's called herpes zoster. Herpes me more loyal than than this Larry. They really need a rebrand on that name. Very very unfortunate. That has nothing to do with the other stuff that was I used to. I got about five minutes on stage. Thanks to shingles when the doctor reassured me in herpes zoster housing herpes. He goes it. It's nothing to do with her BS. I go then. Why call it thin writing anything? We're other all the other names taken. What are you doing? This is ridiculous. That is crazy like did you. I guess you took medication. And everything for it. Yeah I did yeah I was all. That was an early self-isolation case actually if I think I was I was lucky enough to be in Montreal. At time I was just sort of my wife when Toronto was can you not come back? I kinda newlyweds here. We should be spending time she goes. We don't really need that kids. Don't need that right now because highly infectious in the first few days or week or whatever. It is right okay. Yeah so I was. I was Corentin. I was quarantined in my parents basement in Montreal away from my wife and kids in Toronto. Wow so when I got it I I think I was like a few days into it and I. I thought I've got some sort of a rash Maybe when the person was massaging me or something maybe the oil they used or whatever And then it was. My boss told me so you have Sounds like you have shingles. I said what I Gordon Doctors. The Doctor Says Yep you've got shingles. Do you need any pain medication. I'm going well it it it just more than it hurts so no And so I was supposed to go to a scout camp because I'm a scout leader. I didn't go there and then I think two days later I'm in like extreme pain And was like you said you can't get up outta bed. You just want to lie down and and I couldn't get a doctor's prescription for like tylenol. Six or whatever it was that he was going to prescribe so now. This is back in the day before now. Part is legal And you know I'm I'm not like some other guys right can figure out where to get this stuff. I call my brother lives in. Whitby and I'm at scarred by says come get me. We need to go somewhere and get some gumy's here and so he's laughing on the phone. Could make one of the most straight edge guys that he knows yes and so we we end up going finding a place on the Danforth getting some Gumy's and I was converted right then and there is that right all my goodness. I'm since then telling you the funniest thing is that you're a scout leader looking for dummies. It just it's really doesn't and also you're a scout leader and you don't do the grout in your own basement scouts on its on. Its head for me. Owed Dude I. I know like just like three knots. Maybe nuts that's it. That's you know I'm not. Yeah I'm not like these other guys that know like every single and what it's used for you know I'll I'll go gator on a pedestal. Do maybe this is a mistake. I should I hear. I hear scout leader. I think this is the guy who's going to lead us through Zombie Apocalypse. He's going able to skin animals alive. Cook them he's going to be able to fell trees and create fires. And there's none of that I can. I can make a fire. I can canoe. I can throw up a tent I can hike for for weeks on end but you asked me to. I can cook. I can cook at Camp. Camp cooking is very different than home cooking. But you asked me to make a not. You asked me to build a house order. Yeah no believable. You asked me J. U. Believable was. That's what I would. You've turned with a bunch of Comedians. Yeah I WANNA ask you about Russell Peters Because he's from like from where I'm sitting in for where. He's like huge massive Godfather man but he's not like he's unknown. It seems like in the in the world of comedy or is he. I don't think you could call him unknown anymore. Maybe a couple of years ago. He was on March Mary. This podcast. You Know W. T. APP is a huge podcast. I remember Marc Maron. Kind of in a you know because when you know Russell it's all you know you just you just know Russell you assume everybody else knows. Rosso now the same year a buddy of mine from Chicago. He brought his his white girlfriend. Up FROM CHICAGO TO TORONTO. Yes she was a hairdresser and she loves comedy and she didn't know Russell Peters was and I got sick love comedy. She had no idea she was all. I should look him up and she knew like ten comedians she. She did know college she did like I was like. Oh that's so weird that she wouldn't if that's an aberration but then Russell was on a Merrin. Marc Maron Goes Dude. Who who are you? Who are you a noble? You are below. Where did you come from? How do you like what you saw? I never hear about you. I don't know you and yet I understand that you you sold out the O two arena. Then you sold out Madison Square Garden twice like I don't understand. How have I not seen you and I do not know you? Yeah so then I was like oh as crazy and then I realized that psych. It's kind of this massive cult following like it doesn't feel fair to call it a cult following when he's selling out arenas and he's there but in effect that's what it is and I mean. Tell me a little bit about Russell that maybe other people don't know how Russell is you know. I'll tell you something I'll tell you A. He's actually he'll him mess with. He loves to mess with people. He loves Thomas Oh he he comes off like a bit of a brick like When we were in Jordan Amman. He does this thing. I'm sure this is somebody who does all the time. Where a you come off stage as a young comedian. You're hoping that somebody tells you that was great up there You know that that you did a good job so then You know your backstage and he'll he'll either. You're walking around backstage. She'll be like. Hey Kid I'm not the same age almost as you come here. Yeah Yeah you'll be like You did great up there. That was a great set Russell. I haven't gone yet. I'm nasty. I'm sure you'll do well. You know what I mean. Like he doesn't say or he'll I don't know he'll he'll he's always mess with you backstage. Something just goofing around like that being a dick but he's He you know there is a guy that I met a few years ago on the Danforth. I think he had a restaurant of the Danforth. His wife and his child died in some terrible car accident and Russell knew him and Russell was dude. Forget about everything. Come on tour with me for six months. Just come unto you. Just forget about everything no expenses. I'll take care of you bubble. You know and from what I understood. Russell didn't know him that. Well but Russell is that type of guy to to really help out people you know when I tell people that people go what people should be talking about that matter when things Russell's at Dick so it was like a guy who likes the best would be based the bus people's balls. He met my wife many many years ago and he looked at her and she had like a Bob. Haircut he goes. Your head looks like a doorbell. Ding Dong he's always with my wife does not like recipe tres. Like I kind of burst. Oppression is at what does that. What does that but I think he's a very good guy. I think he's a generous dude and I think he's He's the OJEA men and I go with respect to people who like laid the laid the groundwork and laid the foundation. Yeah yeah another another guy whose name comes up And that's where I saw you In Toronto this is Dave Marash. A lot of people call him like. He's like the originals. The originals as well had on your show year I had a year ago this week like last March break. When we were allowed to congregate get together and hang out when did you. When did you guys I mean and hook up and start doing stuff together. Yeah he's one of my closest friends. He's become my brother and and it just came out of like he came to Montreal to the comedy. Works my my Home Club. There and he was just site Just a good dude. He was just you know he he. I don't think he'd even seen me do comedy. And as I came in. If you need a host for this show I'd love to do it. I think what happened was. He came for a Thursday Friday Saturday and then he was doing a show on the Sunday with a guy. Jeff Shwe another friend of ours was a comedian and they were Valentine's love show and I was like if you guys need post for Sunday just let me know and Dave was like Yemen. All right go like he just. He didn't really have a nobody. You know he was just like I don't care what. He was like really focused on improving his own comedy so he wasn't like. I got to see what disguise like I as a host. I don't really know him. You just give me a chance like that. And it was a bit and I was hosting the the we in terrorist show that he had started back then. Ten twelve years ago and then we started doing some touring around Ontario around Quebec. We were touring. The show called we in terrorist. It became really fun and being on the road with this guy. Meeting his family was was just a a highlight and he stayed with me. And he's you know he's uncle Dave to my kids and wow watching his his struggles and his His assent has been Has Been One of my life's greatest joys. Actually yeah I remember. See Him on. MR D. Yeah when when he when he first started out. I can't remember the second third last season or whatever it was and it was like this kid is funny. This is really really good And then somebody shared. I think I don't know an album. Whatever he did at Some Toronto location and it was the funniest thing I've ever seen. And so you have been a fan. I Love I love the. He's got a bit part but that shows on on Hulu Ramey Well actually severe. They just they just wrapped on season. Two on his part is bigger. He takes more of the really do ya Ya. How but her Salah a lead joined the cast this year too so he was working with him. It's it's absolutely amazing to see what this guy's been able to do. You know his his just his reach keeps getting bigger and bigger. I don't know if you remember the show blossom ever remember that Sharia Joey Loss Miam- B. I knew we were last year January. We were doing. We interests in Calgary and were staying in an Airbnb in Calgary and I'm in the bedroom. He's out in the Living Room and I just hear Holy Shit and I'm like what's up. He goes. Do check this out and it was. It was Miam- Bialik from loss of loss. Message him she's also been on What's that show the most popular show the nerds? Oh Ya oh my goodness I talk Big Bang theory big. Thanks Mary Jeff's so she's also been on Big Bang theory so she continues to be a working actor. She sent him a direct message. Saying your comedy. Because he had a Netflix. Half hour she said. Your comedy is some of the most amazing crazy things I don't know if you know me I'm also performed but I thought your your comedy special was just fantastic in the message you to tell you that. Like wool dude. You'll made day after Ronson message. Big Thing I've been there for a number of his big moments in it. It really brings me a lot of joy. Yeah he's he's got like his style like that net flicks bit that he does like. How like okay. So you're how do you rehearse? How do you create that? Because it seems so spontaneous rather that is that is years in the making that is yams in the Megan. The one fellow comedian told me this a bunch of years ago six years ago. Eight years this Guy Day. Dave to sonus Albanian Canadian Montreal. He says to me he goes. I loved Abraham Dave rehashes guy who if the if all the comics are doing badly in the room is terrible. You send in Dave and all of a sudden he lights the place up just great but also if everybody is doing well and the room is hot you send Dave in there and he just kills the room and nobody knows what happened. And here's the story goes. He's always like meant. But that Guy Dave because Dave knows he was Kinda like that he has such a deep energy from everybody right and he wanted to have his own unique voice in his own energy. That's a big part of the comedic process. You WanNa have aren't very you up there but It took time it took time and took him really working on himself and discovering his voice and seeing how he can use it in different situations and see how he can be that guy who always always kills and he's got a pretty good rate like he's he's generally doing very very well on stage and not a lot to say that that they're always killing. I went to see him at a barbershop. Okay Heck's I don't carry wearing Toronto. It was what was literally a barbershop during the day. And I believe it turned into a bar. I think it's the in the junction. If it's the same one that I know about I think it's on Dundas West but I might be wrong. That's one of them that wanted to do that. Show yes so it was Was Is it. Seema is a very. That's right yeah. He was there Another guy whose name can't remember. Could it have been Patrick Hickey? Yes yes and then yeah and then I think it was this dude. I just remember but he had a white do the mustache. He makes his look jess. Jerry Jared Jared Jared Campbell. Yes yes jared. Yeah and did he tell you about this show? I know all these people you're talking about because these are close by these the the it was the funniest thing so I don't know maybe twenty thirty people in this place mall obviously small place and obviously looks. You know there's people that live upstairs and so there was one Thai so so Dave's Dave and somebody opens the door as excuse me you're making a lot of noise. Can you turn it into energy is it was the funniest thing? Dave just riff on that we'll heckle. Yeah Yeah Yeah. His ripping is the best. And when Patrick was on right before Dave Yeah Pat. Patrick is making a joke about just making a joke about like a like a a retarded person you use the word retard. Yeah I know some people that yeah but but when I'm in a comedy show you know to me I understand that all everything's off you know everything is is it okay. If she can make it funny I mean that's just me I can understand right. Not himself doesn't do that anymore. For too many complaints over the years we all interesting fucking. Yeah Yeah and so. There was literally a girl in the front row. That was so mad and so angry and she walked out but it went on for like ten minutes and then when Dave came on. Does he goes. He goes men. Men these These dorito chips are retarded. Like he's like I'm not even talking about a human being in this whole thing right now. Dave came on eight K. Motte and Dave because there was an interruption in the show sorta thing yeah he just went on and on and it was the funniest thing just just to see that energy and him just it was similar to At your last show the we terrorist. I think it was just riffing off of I think trump he was riffing off of anyway so and it was just like seems right off the cuff when he was angry. With Don Cherry. Y'All Harry's that's right that's right. Yeah and it's just so funny when he when he has that energy. Yeah that's the best. Yeah when did you find out that you didn't have to come up with a new joke? Every time you went on stage that you continue to work on the same material iphone that odor very very early on that yet. That's Yeah that's usually should know that early on. I did not but I think it was. Maybe my third or fourth time going on stage in some some Guy Guy Carl. I still remember who he is. Comedian was like. Hey you're going on tonight and I said I am man but I'm sorry it's it's GonNa be the same material and this veteran comedian. Scott Falconbridge is still very much performs and tours he walks by me doesn't even look at me just walked by because never apologized for your material and then kept walking as no no. No I was just saying I am. He was gone there was he didn't care to hear anything from me. He just wanted to tell me. Yeah brought apologized for your material and I told somebody that story. And they're like him and the whole name of the game is repetition. You're not gonNA get good. You know like the idea is to know your jokes and your bids inside out and know them in a way where you can start the joke. Somebody can heckle. You can handle them. Take care of that. Go right back into the joke finish. The job can still kill the joke. Know what I mean. There's like there's no it's just seamless. It's absolutely seamless and you can dip in and out of your jokes and you gotTa know your material that way. You know you're yourself you've got to know it. So well saying that only comes from repetition and. When do you know that? Okay let's move. Let's create another show another line another another bit. Well it's not about knowing for me. I can't speak for all comics in their process. But it's like sometimes you're just you're like a fountain. You're just a well wellspring of hot. I got to work down there. Solta WANNA work on and then months go by men. I haven't written a new joke. I got nothing like you went to whatever. It is absolute comedy in the Ottawa in January. Now it's August and you're going back to do forty five minutes again at absolute comedy and auto on your like Jesus. I haven't. I'm not even giving these guys like four minutes of fresh material. It's just a reset and some people are okay with that. Some people like that's my set the set in you that that that's the whole job. I don't like that. I like to like continuously be working but there are times where you just life gets in the way and it's like no more. There's no new material you're not particularly inspired or you're not challenging yourself or whatever it is it just it happens it happens to everybody where comic. Sir just sick of their own voice and like out gotta gotTa rights material and some people sit and write. I don't do that as much I to be. Perfectly honest might my best jokes. My favorite jokes have come to me when I've been doing vacuuming lawn mowing in the shower. These ideas when you free your mind everything. While you're doing something brainless I find. That's often when something comes to whether it's an idea for a bid or an idea per story or something you can write about or so. It's it's really amazing how that happens and is good. It makes me back you more than I. Normally only Orson very clean house. I can get a joke. Is How many chances do you give a joke like? So if you go into okay I think you have a joke. You go on stage. You tell it doesn't go as well as you think. Do Scrap right away or did you continue to work on it. How many chances do you give it? It's that that the answer to that is kind of like a moving a moving target type of thing you know you. Sometimes you do a joke and you're like I'M GONNA go. He's got WANNA take a risk here. Take a riskier. I'm not sure about the joke. And you go and you do it. And the crowd does not like it. You ask route. I never cared for that joke anyway. And they never sees the light of day ever again. Okay I I have a joke that I can tell you exactly that my mother once we were in Pakistan and I was trying to make the joke so it wasn't in Pakistan necessarily but we are once and I am whoever the architect was who built this house. Forgive had had the bathroom right behind Reverend Wright inside the dining room like you go to the bathroom and the owner of the bathroom. And you're in the dining room and I'm in Pakistan and my stomach is not feeling good at all you know. I've eaten all the wrong things and I'm like an bad shape and I'm just like sweating trying to hold it in my mother's like just cold. The bathroom goal in nine. Look I don't eat would idiot built this house. I'M GONNA walk in on dinner. They're gonNa hear me from dinner. Then I'm GONNA walk in. The door is going to open. It's going to be terrible smell and my mother goes wah what smell you know you. Just take the soul of you. Wash your hands with soap and the soap smell will be. We'll go in the bathroom and I was like. Are you even my mom? Do you know what I hear you. So what was I gonNa Take Care of this? It's basically a glorified shit joke. I have a bunch of eggs on it but to be honest. I don't WanNa do glorified shit jobs. I don't WanNa do it but I found it a funny story and I was like I'm not trying to bring that to to the full. I did it it didn't work and I'm like you know what you're right. Not like that joke. I don't either and that's all it's never going to tell you that it's that one time was done. And you know even even after I tell that jared Campbell the same guys you were mentioning Jarrett's who came up to me and he goes You know you could do that. He even gave me attack. Here's something you could do. You could say this and even then again never have do a joke again ugly times. A joke doesn't work but you stick to it so stubbornly so stubbornly you're like not. I'm going to make this work and it's a combination of finding out. Maybe you got to shrink it. Maybe you've got to give context. Maybe you gotta be funnier quicker. Maybe make it more relatable. There's so many things that could be the reason for why you're joke is not working especially since my jokes are a little longer. It's not just a one liner. One liner does work. You're like okay. That's not. That's not a good joke but for me to minute. Joke about the cottage. I'm going make this. I'm GonNa make this thing saying somehow have got to turn it into something and so you stick to it stubbornly. Sometimes sometimes you do the joke commandment changed nothing but maybe on stage. Something will come to me. Maybe somebody will interrupt me and say something that will give me the idea who knows and then you do the joke. Nobody directs nothing. Changes do the same way again. It doesn't work a dammit. I gotTA FIGURE OUT. I got to figure this out. This is a bit this has got to be a bit so sometimes it's unsafe sometimes. It's months you stick with something and it's now nowhere. Yeah Yeah. It depends on comedians individual level of arms stubborn. Sure and percents one of the things I've always wondered about. Is You know obviously in Canada. We get tons of American TV shows all the late night shows. Everybody is making fun of trump. Or you know whether it's as looks or how he speaks is They're they're they're spinning and riffing on his policies and whatnot. We've never had Our comedy is very different in Canada. It seems there's there's there's no one comedian that I can remember that has been hard on like politicians mercer. Rick Mercer is a satirist is definitely the guy if you if you wanted be not because I I toured with him and he ripped all of them you know. He ripped everybody. We toured in October November. When Justin Trudeau's black face was still fresh andrew? Zannier about it being a you know in the insurance industry really you know painted that one on thick turned out. He was like a summer intern or something like that. But rumor so is making fun of Al Andrew. Scheer would sometimes be like let me put on my old insurance cap for a minute and think about that dude was a summer. You were injured. You've got coffee for people. Relax putting on your whole half but he made he he you know rick is probably more. He Leans Liberal. You know as a as a man from Newfoundland. I you could probably do the math on it but char- you don't know it like that's not what he says. He makes fun of everybody across the Board and so. I think we do have our at least that one guy and I hear you know. Steve Patterson will do it in a couple of other guys. I really enjoy that role but yeah I mean. I think we may not have as much fun to Megan and Canadian politics. We've bought into the fact that it's boring so people up more exciting stuff that I can talk about. You know by the ones who do well do a really great job. Rix The first one who comes to mind I The name the guy he just said. Who Does the debaters listening tonight? I had a chance to To see him host to be a host At this Awards banquets I went to. While within the past month He is hilarious. He is so funny unbelievably funny. He's a guy who when I early on he used to live in Montreal for a short period of time two years and I saw him on on stage and I while I shouldn't be a comedian like I really. That's what good comedy is. I'M NOT GONNA get there like there's no reason for me to To pursue this. I I really had like a reckoning. After seeing him he was so his material was amazing. He was so unbelievable. You know what it was. It was Saint Patrick's Day. It was a nightmare. It was the worst environment for Comedians. Because people are drunk their heckling so kappa wooden that his material live like he'd be funny for a bit they land and they need like beg people to let him finish this joke right not going to get that one patient that he going on people would refund make fun of them and just loved it. And I'm like I'm watching this thinking I'm never gonna be able to do this and thankfully over time you realize it. Oh it just it takes a lot of practice. It takes a lot of good and bad situations that you have to study up to pick apart and be like okay. This is the this is the direction we can go in. And you just have to build your your tool kit you know and I had had toolkit one year two years in watching Steve Paterson. I was like I gotta quit. But he's really the best so good as you still do stand up. Do you know he does we. We did a show together. We toured together with the Saskatoon J allow. His name is Is Limited for. He's not GONNA do He was touring with Ivan Decker. He was touring with a couple of other comedians. I don't remember who else but he he's done that recently. As of two years ago now with the debaters he's also doesn't help. The debaters live. Scott all the corporate gigs. He does but he had a tour called. This is not debatable. He did have that was two years ago. Yeah yeah he is he is he is funny Up and coming COMEDIANS. That that you really I would say jared Campbell who we've mentioned a couple of times here. Jarrett is He's kind of crossover the UP AND COMING. He's he's he's got a set from just for laughs from last year on on TV. But I think I don't know if Jarrett's even been doing it like six or seven years but he's great. There's a kid named Jacob Baltin in Toronto who comes to mind Another Jacob Jacob Samuel from Vancouver is such a good comedy writer he's Great There's another guy out of Edmonton who was the Yoyo champion. That was his claim to fame before comedy. And he's so so good. I'M GONNA look him up Yoyo. Chant comedy edney tonight. I have to tell you this guy's name very very dry very The way he delivers his like nothing else I've ever seen before. Yeah but I have to get his name at some point. I don't know how to no. It's not coming up his name now. I look at Yoyo and champion. How many Yoyo champions are there? This is regrettable in Edmonton yeah out of Edmonton originally. I think he lives in Vancouver now. But we'll see again we'll we'll we'll look him up. what's Ugandan comedian Oh Arthur Simeon. That's not covered by any. He's not up for coming but he's hilarious. He's fantastic. He's wanting to S. He's really another guy who Dave and Arthur and I would tour together Sometimes we did a little tour called legends. In the making now I was the host. I was not the legend making it that day but we toured together. We had so much fun. We had just a ridiculous amount of fun and I don't know man. I watched him grow into something very very special. Also he's really really good One of my life. I don't know if it's on anymore but designated survivor when it first came out I remember So during the day I work in the advertising space and I remember getting The first the first episode and in watching that I like this. You know Kiefer Sutherland. As President Okay can get behind that And I watched it all and it wasn't until I to prep for this then. I realize you're on that show dude. You had watched it and just not no. I had not known I had not known that. That was you How tell me about that experience working with working with Kiefer Sutherland? In in that whole crew it was you don't because of the environments it's like it's very surreal. You're like Oh man I watched you like I. Don't get star struck That's really how I get. Yeah Yeah but I did get like. Is this really happening to me right now? I really am keeper southern. I've been watching since I was a kid. But because of the environment which is very very like Hyperproductive so this guy keeper Sutherland. Is You know the executive producer and He you know I think he helps. Direct a little babies. I you know. the lead. Obviously he's in most of the scenes and his thing is also. He doesn't want anybody to have their scripts on on set. Sometimes people are like fumbling till the last second to remember their lines. Everybody should come prepare. So it's very get a. I've never had that with any other set. Where my agent sends we mail saying? Production is asking that you come fully prepared knowing your lines some people. That's not part of their process. They're like man that sucks. But that's what Kiefer Sutherland Ass Ford. He's got more lines than anybody plus executive producing the show. And he's a workaholic and ease of musician tours with his band on his off time. So if keeper can do it we can do it so I came very very prepared and it was really like let's go. Let's go and he's very hard on himself when he doesn't get the line so it was so serious and so intense so quickly that I had no time to feel how surreal it was but it was an amazing experience. Was Really Yeah. That was that was really nice. You're doing some more acting. Is that something? You're you're doing more of where you want to do more I am. I've got about. I guess the first time I did any acting twenty eleven. I was in three things I was in three films and I was like well. Looks like I'm an actor. Now this is my life and then Little nothing changed and I was like man. This is so KEDO wakeup call. You know yeah. I was in Movie called breakaway. A movie goon had a lot of people were like. You're seeing was terrific and goon is just one scene but it was opposite. Sean Sean Sean. William Scott on Michael. Scott Sean William Scott Jaye Barish Shell stiffler. Stiffler is right. Sean I'm Jay Baer Sean. Yeah an Eugene Levian Day integrate and then people were like This is gray. You know pumping my tires. Basically as in a movie called French immersion with an all star Canadian cast in Quebec cast and people were like you did a great job and housing is is who I am. Nothing changed not one extra. I didn't do another movie for a bunch of years. Actually it was more like TV and other things came up. Yeah so it just it. It was a good early reminder to me that You know nothing is guaranteed to you. Nothing nothing's likes changing. It's not like it's on the days that older comics talk about like if you got on Johnny Carson. Your Life with the next day you'd get a deal you'll get a sitcom you get something this is now with the world we live it. You know. It's not nothing equals anything. Nothing's guaranteed any. Yeah that's right. Yeah it was good. It was good for me to bre- allies that right away and realize it comedy will always be my anchor. I was like I will make sure that I am always doing comedy. Because comedy always provides me with something and that that should be my anchor. And that's where people you know. Speech should know that. That's that's my priority. And that's the way I've operated and it's worked out and that comedian from Edmund. Who I was talking to you about Charles. Haycock Charles RECCO. Yeah Nice terrific. Do you remember if it was on one of four point five or if it was on ten or ten fifty on Sunday nights there would be a like an hour to hour comedy Late at night I think it was four point five but I would listen to this show every Sunday night to discover I. I guess because it was hilarious and I would listen to people like like. You can't listen people anymore. Because I don't know if it's right or wrong but you know you'd hear Bill Cosby. You hear Woody Allen Woody Allen as a stand up. Comic blue was hilarious. I don't know if you've ever had a chance to listen to his his old. Stand up stuff feminine. Yeah Yeah I was a New York couple of years ago. I think when Louis C. K. Was making his comeback and you know he shows up at the at the cellar unannounced so. I was there on the his second. Iv did that okay And he was funny and so my question to you. I'm more I'm asking for your advice now. Can we separate? What are your thoughts on separating the arts from the artist? It's it's the it's such a enormous discussion it's A. It's a huge huge subject. I don't know man I don't know I'm I'm not really able to do it to be honest people who do look there's the bill cosby's of the world like why would you want to like it's come on how many women does a man have to rape in their sleep for you to be united still like well if you can separate that like there might be something wrong with you as well. You know I'm talking about. I loved guns N. Roses when I was growing gloved gun. Oh yes and then. Axl Rose turned out to be such a prick and not to me directly. Just a short is such a loser and then I was like I'm done with. This band is over this advance. I don't like this guy so I'm I'm quick to pull the shoot. I know not. Everyone needs to do that. In the case of Louis C. K. I felt like he was such a brilliant writer. And all this a brilliant comic incredible work ethic but he was so unapologetic. I really felt like is like you. These these these flex got what they wanted or whatever you know his his attitude was like he wasn't really. I don't know he came back. More slugging arrogant I thought and I was like There was an opportunity for you to generally be a little bit humble about this and I never really saw that. Yeah but I'm not the guy I'm not the guy who's like how dare Yuk Yuks Book Louis. If People Wanna go see him and that's that doesn't that doesn't I'm not in a place where I could be like. You should not go and see this person. That's for sure. Yeah but it but it's tricky because you know female friends who are like well. This guy is basically a a sexual harasser. Now if this happened to your girlfriend or if this happened to your To your to your sister all of a sudden would you be so keen to be like come on let Louis perform you know you more personally needle Chapman? Maybe maybe I'm not looking at this correctly. So it's it's idle. Have all the answers man? But it's very very tricky territory and I've always had. I was able to shoot quickly because there are people out there. There's good people and good. Camacho building support those guys absolutely absolutely. I'm always I'm always. I'm always worried about you. Know the heroes that you might have seen. That will one day ego shit now. I like that guy anymore. You know I I Love Bill. Burr I just loved Ober about seems and I think it's probably visiting Montreal so I didn't live in Montreal anymore so might have been twenty thirteen. Twenty fourteen he hadn't peak peak yet but he was so great. Things are going really well for him and I walk into the comedy works my home club and the Bruins are playing the halves on TV. I know he's from Boston. I know he loves the BRUINS. I know a lot about this man. I'm Harris Fan. He's watching TV. He's drinking beer. And I'm like I. I can see a half of his profile and his beards looking at the TV. And I took. I took about ten seconds to deliberate. Should I go up to bill? Burr has I know I walked right by him and it takes a lot of like you know how people are when they see someone they love. I just have to tell you this I just had to meet you. Did you after you had acted disturb this person's life that was sold them a favor but I could fall in? I could see myself falling into that trap. Yeah that with Matson Dean. Once and later I was like why did I start talking to Matson Dean and make him feel weird. I don't even like the leafs. I don't even like Matson Dean. What's this is like fame changes you as a human being on the spot. Sometimes so I just basically. I walked by Bill. Burr and I had no regrets. I don't WanNa meet my hero in this case. Because what if he's a prick? Then what if all a good thing that? I walked by so yeah sometimes you don't WanNa meet your heroes. You know it turns out to be like a little bit unappealing and then then then I'm not guy the guy who pulls the shoot not make Marianna hero nine euro and what if you meet somebody on a bad day. Yeah exactly exactly and you hope that all that all that to say there are also these cases where the disease on Saris of the world right about that. I just got a raw deal. That's just a kind of. He's kind of Goof. He's kind of a goofball with no game but he got he got he got invalided to something bigger into this Louis C. K. and Harvey Weinstein thing. Then you know Darby Weinstein is a monster Louis C. Monster as he's on sorry you know he was he just he just asked for a blowjob in a weird way. You know what it felt like I. There's those cases also that you're like I can't really get behind that one. He's kind of goofball and he was you know I heard his latest special. He did feel genuinely. It seemed like he was genuinely shamed and humiliated. Yeah appreciate of people coming out because it could all be taken away from you at any moment. That's interesting. Les Man This has been This has been great. Meant I appreciate all the time right. I really do. I feel like you're a guy who I feel. I feel I am talking to a comedy fan. Who could talk about it forever over sure thanks? Yeah yeah listen if if people want to keep up with what you're doing whether it's your new cooking endeavors or whatnot. Where's the best place for them to go Standup ALI DOT COM is the website. I'm about to go in and put the word can sold on a bunch of gigs. It's all right. People can see like the life of an artist and how these things go but a standup. I lead dot. Com is the website and then everything else is by Leon on instagram on twitter on facebook at underbelly. Now now you brought up another question. I have You know so whether it's you I know you've you've got the the glamorous CBC GIG and But again there's other artists leather comedians. that you know there were serving a restaurant like you said they're Dicamba in both of those things have been taken away from them. What can what little can we do as consumers and fans due to help out? What would you recommend? A lot of comics are a Posting hosting or posting online comedy. So they are basically look as a comedian. If you've got that hustle if you've got that need to do comedy you go you seven. Ten days without comedy doesn't feel right. It doesn't feel right in your stomach. You're like men might think by saying that I love. I'm not doing it why I haven't gotten on so long and that first time back that second time back you're like my rhythms off. I'm not my jokes. Aren't exactly where they need to be. I don't feel the same comfort on stage. So we're all taking the sort of forced hiatus and I think a lot of people are doing comedy from home right now and they don't have the laughter they won't have the sound of laughter. They won't have that. But if you WANNA watch some comedians try out some stuff. Give them some support. Pell them that you thought this joke work. This joke didn't all of that kind of stuff. I think it will go a long way and you know it's interesting that right now. In this time global pandemic people are turning to the artists right. They're turning the. Tv turned into comedy like on television. They're turning to their actors and they miss the performances and they miss all that when when this is all over and God willing. It'll be sooner rather than later. Please come out with some artists in every way. You can't right now another thing you did. You can buy the albums that Comedians Comedians have put out not expensive five bucks ten bucks if you have the means. I mean if you're if you're in the dumps yourself right now do you know. Don't don't put yourself out but you know bookmark that say that when you get some money. I will support this comic. Because they've worked so hard and they've made so many people laugh or entertained so many people. I think that's one way to do it. I think I mentioned more than one way there but I think that's a good way to sort of see things right now. Ali Matt. Thank you again for your time. Thank you so much off took.

Dj for russell peters on his comedy to her so just wanted to give a shoutout to the unique in awesome. Dj spin bet. I was going to wear my raptors jersey. The braga year your hat on yet. Yeah i got gotta de representative reading actual fact green learned star while ago that when i wear a hat it means. I haven't had time shower today. So i feel you. Yeah gobert right like a cova here laying like it's just the. I don't think this has been interesting for us because we're at five. Been gun because you can. We've had some trying to pinch. Td shows and whatnot. We've had interesting. Zoom calls with people never get meetings so really and that we were talking to monte lipman. Who's the president of universal. Like and he's in sweats or a hat. And you're just like yeah officer wouldn't be like this. Yeah yeah you never know high. The following podcast is brought to you by radical road brewery. The best craft beer in the heart of leslie. Bill find eleven. Seventy seven queen street east. That's radical road brewery. Hey my name is darby wheeler. I'm a producer filmmaker director from aereo ontario originally. But i've lived in toronto for the last twenty years. I mostly known for directing hip hop evolution. That was on netflix. because at forever Almost a decade of my life. But i also used to produce at george straub lobola tonight which was previously our which i think previously that and had another name but i i also produced for radio produce podcast for a company that i'm working for now which i am owner and Co-founder i'm productions. We're really excited. About scenario. it set a new endeavor. Taken our expertise myself rigo baskin. Who wrote hip hop bubba lucien in bringing some cool content to the world. We hope and i just wanna say welcome to the music. Oh welcome to music's is gonna screw it up and down. That's what i say. Welcome to music. I picture william shatner walk. That's a spiel. So you can feel free to edit that down if you know that that's awesome. Oh welcome where. It's so excited to have you on. I mean i know the mutual friend for many many years. Yeah let's just talk about him the whole time like you and i can fry filled as as the. There's lots of material there with that guy. That's probably one of those like less crazy story. But i know this story that. I think we'll be for another podcast limits. There's there's enough for a whole season stories about me. Yeah well we're we're we're really excited to have you on board. You really wanna start diving in. We do want to talk about you know that we also focus on some new projects or germ a break. We'll start about evolution. I know a bit from mace but well not feeding get. I'd love to tell us a bit about you. Know your history in terms of your love for hip hop. Because i know that's a lot of what you brought to the production. Yeah i don't know what that is. But i love hip hop. It's funny for me. Because i felt like if i could've named the series i would've called it rap evolution but obviously we take an up and made it music. But obviously if you if you're if you really want to do your work in history and it's something we sort of. Don't we touch on it because it's part of the culture now and it's sort of been taken over as an art form and people mostly think about wrapping and music and that's what they call hip hop but if pop is obviously a whole bunch elements you know you have graffiti and break dancing. There's dj there's also emceeing and then as bad bottle always coined knowledge was one of the things. I always like that part of it like learning about break beats. That was always hop timmy. Right but as far as buying rap records i used to go to detroit. Mostly right went by my good friend. Justice beaubourg. I would hijack his parents car and go to various record stores in detroit. I wasn't at what. I got to know. Some of the people from doing hip hop evolution. They weren't the best ones. Are you guys are way but we were canadian. Kids coming over there. I was really turned onto hip hop via the radio over detroit. Because i would get. I was really lucky. I grow cereal real interior to rate pretty much like southwest on tehran. Windsor leamington area. Right on lake erie. so you get cleveland. Radio get detroit and yeah just opened my mind. A black music mostly jazz at first and then getting into hip hop. I remember hearing boogie down. Productions by parents are waiting for them. They're the dentist it's I'm still number one. That song i just remember being like. Oh i gotta go get that record next week in troy. And that's been do. We would by our shoes over the air and mostly records. Yeah that's where i got turned onto. I think for me to coming. I was always into a deeply into it. Felt privilege when i came to trot to be able to shows little easier than driving to detroit because my parents have flip out a little bit. Detroit was still pretty tough breed. Tough back then but they let me go to shows. I saw p. e. once like really early on i remember flav like we were like the me and my two will like the only white kids in the crowd. We thought and flayed came out. Gave us the towns. Hey guys you know. I don't know if he was going like they're cool but it was pretty funny. He came right at sideline for the show bound us. Oh but yeah. That was always something that i found. I don't know why identify with the pop and a real cause i. I'm just a white kid. I think at that time there's a ton of white kids probably like you know even like you grow kids our age. I mean even kids you know getting into hip hop because it was something. There's something really cool about it. It was new fresh and dangerous. I mean i'm always attracted to that kind of music. I love pop music but like a little bit grown more liking pop music but when i was younger the clash and groups that were dangerous were always the best ones and public enemy represented that to me seeing them and they had the militant guy s. W's come your whoa. What is going on here. You know and then you proceed like i like that part of it too because like i said you do the knowledge thing and you would delve into a break beats came in. Do you might also read malcolm x. Biography chuck said something about it right. So i don't know if. I answered your question there. It's pretty complicated complex. I might even answer differently. Sometimes because i don't even really remember except buying records and by. Did you guys ever do that for rapper. You'd just by a record on a cover. I did that a lot. Yeah yeah yeah even seoul. Yeah three feet. High rise undercover. I was like wow. This looks cool or these guys and then record store guides at all. Put it on something and i heard me myself. I've ever oh. Then i remember you go on the next leap and seeing it on this video show that used to be on in detroit on channel sixty one and i was like. Oh i'm glad i bought this now. That record is maybe top. Five record for me i. It changed my life. Yeah that's cool. How i was. I was really curious about how white guy gets to do. So much work in Rap music about music and stuff You know did you ever think back when you were a young kid. Crossing the border to go see public enemy that one day you would tell stories about rap music not not really not particularly i remember i feel like from where i came from and i think my mom all her friends and my they would tell you that what i'm doing is what i should have been doing because i started doing it back then. I play with cameras and do but being documenting the history of rap. I i'll tell you one thing. Though man. i used to get really bummed about And this is a little bit later on when i was in toronto about the lack of good documentation of there. There's some good books that came up really around when we were doing. Hit by a little bit before but we like Can't stop won't stop. That's a really great book And then you know. Dan charles did one. Call the big payback. But that's more like business but he touches on the origins. there's a few. I have them all behind me. But that i remember being really frustrated by the lack of documentation that i remember watching like in my little apartment getting to see something that maybe much music aired in or something but it would be a bbc documentary about reggae music and i would be like. Oh why did they do it. So well that all access and you really learn where came from and the culture. And i thought that hip hop had done a really good job in my. Is you know it wasn't that old. It's not that old. Forty some odd years. That also. But i always was frustrated by that i would say that was something that i could say when when we go and i were starting to am banger films produced by bluejean when we started thinking of the early things like this has never really been done. Well there's lots of guys who like. I remember curtis blow told me he filmed a bunch of stuff way back in the day but it was something about the quality that didn't really jive with him but man he pretty much was doing what we were doing. So so how did you wanna touch on banger. Earlier a huge fan mental evolution. He adds greatly my came out of the punk side yet music. I know enough about. That's that's for sure. But i'm really interested in all like loving that in bangor films. How how did you get involved with bam films to eventually produce these. I went well at the time. I didn't come in there. At the bub-bubba lisa came to me. But i always was is at georgia's show tromble worked there be previous working on. Why worked a couple jobs in between. But that was one of my jobs. I always been sort of spewing doing a history of bob. Why are people without clerk stories right. So i think when scott and sam did metal evolution. They had a lot of people in their ear going. Oh so do it for hip hop. They didn't they weren't not ob gyns at all. They're obviously seen an on camera. I think he loves base and break beats and only early shit but he hasn't really no hip hop music. So yeah. I just came in to interview to talk about a bunch of stuff and they said no. We're going to do that. And so that i just sort of help. Originally i helped sort of is going to produce maybe not directed but i think it just slowly morphed into the fact that i knew the most i sort of had the chops to do it and people that are talking to was pretty obvious that i should have directed. I think that's where it came to getting we. Yeah i think just brought better ideas to the thing. And then i also started to hire people that i do. Yeah it was pretty organic. But it took forever greg because we i literally did worked on for more show those for bang or previous republic blues sitting there waiting for a green light to going be on this channel confuse in the us at one point and that little the way for some reason and then it wet hbo. Canada showed up the kathleen. Meet she at a debt. Randy lennox nee. Sort of got behind and robin over there johnson. They got behind and made it happen. Know show scott and sam for doing the work to get someone to convince someone to do. I think it's a hard sell. I know everybody loves that. Show man but it's pretty niece right so it's not it's it's pretty interesting working in production no Now i have a lot of people say we want to do. What do you think of this. That i i literally sorta roll my eyes a little bit these days. Because i think it. So we shall. We got lucky at the time. dr hope. that's not the case. But i feel like it might be asche delegate when i talked about of even other genres right people talk electronic model. And you said. I've talked about forty six or it doesn't necessarily always work particularly if you don't have the background of the passion behind the leafs. Sure i would agree with that. Yeah for sure. There was something to that knowing what we had rules or hip hop evolution. Like we tried to make it always Yet sort of feel or the way we did the script you were like at the time there. Chad sorta knew what he was doing. Because it's different a metal evolution in a lot of ways. Sam was on a journey in discovering. But it i think for hip For that was a little bit different and their personalities are different to sam can really not gamma. There's an episode. Sam eight lincoln park in metal evolution. Love that episode. I think that's a real right. But i don't know if shad would do that. You just s not is personality. 'cause he's also an artist so i'm not gonna shit on your stuff like someone obviously loves it so we did give him a little bit of he had knowledge and that was real too. I think sam was really discovering Chattanooga do the basic stuff that we learned a lot but yeah so. I'm not sure by your question man but a little bit roundabout you're on here. I know i know. Pass fail right there. There was like conduction company. That had their chops surf doing stuff in wolfe's dirty. You mentioned earlier. That was tame your journey six or seven. I made that up a little bit but yeah was in question. But why why did it take. Is you know soon as you watch even if you watched sort of episode one or the first year. That was it i. That's a great story. I mean you could argue today. The pop music today is rap. Pop music similar only nuts. Daria they're talking about pop music. You talking about hip hop drake kim. Yeah i get some some still the weekend rap but he's not and then ran aground day but yeah definitely i mean i think yeah. Go on the charts. It's obvious look at the dress. You know yeah. You tend to be niche. Is that still feel just music. Yeah so let me explain that a little bit. I think my partner would regal put this really well the other day. It's like it's music so if you take okay so then think about documentaries right. I don't think about this so you have two worlds in in production so you have scripted and unscripted scripted can be john rubens lots of layers and you can but most of the most or you know it can be a film or tv or as unscripted to sane. You're going to do. It's the lanes are smaller. Because you have reality yet food documentaries. The documentary is so small. It's like a sliver right. So what is that sliver. That is music documentaries right. That's the challenge. So that's what. I mean by niche in no way am isaiah papas nation and back. That's what we try to convey to these people that were trying to sell shows to make shows with is that hey man like these guys are dominating the conversation these days get real looking at what he do his. Yeah look at social media like people. I know you always wanna look to people but you know what ends up happening is when people look to certain art forms. Those aren't informed slowly grow up. You know like it was funny. I was thinking about the other day. There was a picture of like jay z. And i think french montana and they look like the most sophisticated you know. Cool dude that ever seen. I always like to think that we're we're on the streets doing serious like crazy business. You know like the inspiration to where they come from the wearing the irs boeing. But they give you pull back like music history. You'll see similarities in the past there. You know frank sinatra wasn't a angel turner not. Maybe that's a bad example. But i don't want to throw turton examples. But i know there's some really interesting Backgrounds in music music is not as clean and fresh as we think it could should be nosso. I actually think that's changing that part of its flying away because these guys are so visible down you know. Maybe that's a good thing. But yeah i don't know i go back to like you like metal you said greg i used to like my rockstars crazy and dangerous and a little bit wild right but maybe they still are. Maybe i'm just old. Probably because there are like i think it's a little bit like. Oh yeah it's a different kind of danger than it used to be. We want our stars to be socially conscious we want them to be on. The right side of history is very different. Now yeah like would we really cared if someone went in like back in the day ronald baby bigger younger but like little wayne. Everybody freaked out. Z like trauma capitalist pig. You know using this. You are we that surprised. I don't know. I think it's the black thing that i think. Most people are like. Dude you really let it that. This guy sort him a racist if he's not a racist he's really enabling racist right. So but i think that in the end hip out pretty capitalist music so that takes over the reins for your thinking of what benefits you you know. And isn't really wayne's responsibility for me. I wish he would have not even bothered but is responsibility to not represent himself if he doesn't feel a certain way and you should he. I don't know we're just world is changing as would say that's another podcast as well. Yes that's a heavy shit. I get myself in trouble too. Because i'm pretty feel like some friends that are pretty right. Leaning i still hang with them is not racist. There's just we lost the plot. I think there should be like yeah. Well also it's like. Does he feel like it's not like it's divided like five in the states. Everybody's like oh there's two sides i'm about five different sides in the states these days anyway nothing is ever as they say black and white right. There's always right. Yeah nuances everywhere you know. Yeah hip hop is dude like. I don't wanna put me on. Hipaa hip hip ops documentaries music block of the for sure enough unless you're jay z. Story you walk into them. They're all right. Well for of course was. Was there ever talk. You know being that you guys banger. Canadian production company that. Let's tell a canadian story or was it always now again. I did watch the medal. evelyn. Since i don't know yet they need that global they didn't touch candid. I don't think maybe a little bit rush rush. So was that sort of the thinking. This is going to be a discordant. American story really. Yeah i mean. I think if up stories is an american story so i think you can't. I mean we can go if if we were gonna do an international thing and jump off then. We have to go to france. I before candidates really. Yeah because there is a trip that bam bhatta took a delay people back by right. Maybe freddie set up by brady futura the graffiti artist of there's a bunch of rocks crew. They all went their way early. Like to maybe even earlier. I can remember. I'm probably right. I'm pretty good with my dates. But the Minnesota really conceded salah. But i am pretty good my baby. Sorry but yeah that you'd have to do that before. Yeah if you're poor candida arguably. I love candidate story. It's pretty dope. If there was another season which is not going to be. I would love to have gone what we tried to do. As you focused on peak so the peak in the memphis story of the three six mafia. How do you get there to tell. Their story that connected. So you'd have to be you'd wanna get to drake that's the peak and then you'd work backwards. Probably right because toronto doesn't have a moment dill drake hip hop. I mean you can say all you want about it. But i think people would probably admit i really respect. I'm not taking any respect from hip hop from your cause. It's no sure like michigan was battling day west the pub academy there's you fill it socrates at a moment. I really liked his cardinals special. But it really happens. When break is breakthrough toronto. And i have to share a story with you. So go ahead. I come to episode podcast number one hundred for welcome. Welcome to the music. Welcome and the special guest was meister. Oh cool it was really cool until the host os turns to meister on goes so tell me about the time you're working with so crates and oh my god meisters. Sorry look hang every time every time. Stockings come up a half story so crepes. Yeah yeah yeah okay go ahead. You're you're just put of buried reacting lap boy. Yes he was. Sworn i sorry time. Visit was hosted up at the upstairs of betty's or whatever it is oh yeah. Yeah i went up. There did that podcast with Sammy sammy yeah. That was fun. Actually yeah yeah so you got west to come to bars so that probably work. Yeah it was good to get me to go to. Yeah for sure yes well. Normally we do record this at steve's place down a radical road okay once once we get past cove and we'll do an episode of this with you and we'll do it over a couple of dirt road deal beers over a different project. Talk about the hip hop evolution. Might be my last For a while. I can't i can't run that thing too long but i'm proud of it. Don't get me wrong but yeah always happy to talk about rap. That's still if so. Let's get a couple more questions often. And the toggle hip hop illusion. Don't wanna covers too so okay cocoa. So kelly one. My wife wanted to know yep time listeners never listens to us as how receptive were the artists to being involved and were there any like taboo subjects. You weren't allowed to touch on yet. Probably the probably like be a specific interview but man. I don't think very many. Yeah that was. The beauty of the showed me is the we went. Talk like this. Is the older catholic. Even the southern dudes to like there was this time. I remember once on cool mode. And he's like man. It took canadian. The comedown do this. You know he was sort of a bit. Like what the and. I think that that part of it once we actually started the interviews. They got really into it and like yeah. They were impressed by the work we done and trying to be Like you're doing a documentary so it was a of its discovery so you want to talk to them and say hey is this legit you know like was it influenced was hurt really influenced by jamaican and you're not really he was sorta rebelling against it right so then yeah because everybody says oh and should jamaica and hip hop necessarily connected. 'cause west indian people made it. But if you do your homework there's a bit of a misnomer right so but overall everybody was great. I never have any beep one orson. We did three hundred interviews. Almost two hundred nine hundred and one person call and was mad about their make that was about it and that was after the series went out. Yeah it was a man and then But taboo subjects. I don't think we ever got anyone to tell us not to talk. Killing was asking more on the east coast coach. She didn't Yeah shit yeah sure. Okay yeah actually from my memories. Yeah that was pretty actually. Good good observation like kelly. Yeah that was pretty heavy actually we. I interviewed most bream. Who has to pox brother and after it was done we had a really good relationship with fox real estate and they were gonna clear music for us and then a at the end all out in. I don't know if they were overly happy. I set the I don't dislike in their feelings a little bit. Because i thought it was pretty clear as mostly about the records we never really took too many shots poc and big because i love them both. I think vital artists but it was definitely that. Yeah i could probably do a whole podcast on that for sure. Is that why wheel. Sorry about their rivalry real at east coast west coast immediately by it was immediate thing i think mostly but that's a early. Yeah it's a little bit of both to answer your question. Yeah it's it's when you start to look at it like if you read about it. It's so it's really dumb. It's really dumb. So yeah i think everybody. Yeah i mean you see snoop in that episode that we have like i feel like the same as an mouth on e. It's his people but he's almost like man. It did not have to go like this. It was just really dumb and both sides are to blame you know. I think that's the real end of it. I think they're all they're all a little. I think it really still hurts all those people. But it's a little past it now that you know. How time does that. It'll just heal these big big went into the rock and roll hall payment. The other weekend rights are yesterday sunday. So yeah i mean yeah that was that would be. That's completely like. I'm sure there's a couple of other ones. There's rivalries all over that damn documentary. Southern guys would have it the yet. Yeah there's a couple of those kind of things. Yeah oh you know what's funny story. This is a good one. We were interviewing the sugarhill gang in inglewood new jersey and they had such bad blood sugar hill records who they used the beyond and bobby robinson and sylvia robertson will be labeled order. They're long gone but kids had beef with the two guys who are doing. There's like two different sugarhill gains whole documentary about it actually allow think it's called. You stole my name or something like that. So i can't eat up. Check that at google. That if you're looking for that but it's about the chicago began losing your identity and we're doing the interviews. They just sanitized. They kept covered by playing loud music. We're trying to shoot outside. They had this please. Dude comes because they complain that we're still being outside of a permanent. Please guide comes. He's the dj for the sugarhill gang. Guys who have interviewing the cop. Like sorry guys i gotta gotta go. We end up going into this pizza. Shop criss cross where they actually met is so the crispy crust guys like. I'm not gonna. He actually locked the door and said screw them. This is bs right. But i ended up getting to low both sides of that camp and it's interesting An interesting day. That's for sure was the personally your most blown away by sony. People dream are filming. a fanta. must've been amazing but pretty cool to me. Cool her tell you that much. Yeah yes free cool. He was great. Get him to be that warm and with pretty amazing. He's not no. But i always just like. Oh wow you know. He's like mythical but for me. My favorite is one of chris. Was there Continuing with the thread of a memorable moments. You know people say you should never meet your heroes right. So i am wondering as a huge fan of rap and hip hop Was there a time as you're making this regal. I cannot stand these guys over are no music anymore to be so. Yeah no is your music. I hated it. No i'm thirty months the opposite Piece of music. Yeah someti- oh that's funny. Music like italy tiger with the west coast beep is a song called. Can i swear fuck compton by Why am i play on his name right now. All oh god it. He's bustle dude and he started. This song sucks. Oh i think the opposite. I just so pleasantly surprised by people. Yeah not really We've had a to stand us up. I don't even think that happened late. I mean hip hop music. So it is but everybody's pretty cool and what we've got started yet chad. Who so cool more and us you know. We're not coming from me. I would be just opened with people. Come what we're looking for the benefit. I think about snoop link. I sent the snoop. I'd vilma stupid pass. And i said this is a little different because we're going to ask you some pretty heavy stuff about east coast west coat pocket. He's like i'm in doing so he didn't. He wasn't your typical snoop right but then at the end i said. Hey we're also ask you about freestyle fellowship. And all this crazy l. a. undergrad stuffing's. Oh i love that. I don't even know some so deep into that right so is he got excited. I was like when you ask people about stuff. Not about them than they can talk. Way like q tip talking about jay della used like late lights up. We might ask him or like. Tell us about your process of you know. It's funny when no not one bad. I can't think. I could only be forgetting something but i'm pretty sure i've mentioned this before. I don't think there is anybody who yet people are releases and stuff but other than that slew sales. Yeah how'd you land on actually what we needed a canadian host. That's for one thing not to take anything away from mr bongo and an upbeat. A few other people talked about what he seemed like a blank. Slate and i'll tell you. What are the things chad at. I sort of knew him. And he's super chill like he's about as chill as it gets he's not he's very smart. Bright guy and talk about anything. Very nice can hang with anybody. But he's so like. I think he'd rather have naps all day than really deal with watch youtube basketball highlights but that was what was the benefit. He traveled with us with another first class ticket. You're dealing with a documentary Really tricky right. So you're yeah. He's sitting with us. He's loading crew gear. It was j cole or who had crossed our mind back in the day. Because he's such a student would have been different. You would have been had to deal with their manager and you know like have been just a nightmare not to take anything away from those guys but having shad just Our benefit is part of the team and really with us made it so much easier. But yeah i think the answer your question. He was a blank slate. Young artists cared about rap. It's not as i love like rodriguez. And i are that brain that moves through it but he. That's what's beautiful about discovering as he goes and i think we actually really educated them. That was something along the way. Oh sure yeah. That came across though i in his his thirst for learning. That's real israel. Yeah that's real apron. Remember the day that we did hurt early on 'em being like oh. Wow that was really like you could tell we're onto something near what what's he ever eight. Oh you know you're sort of meeting your you know your heroes. The guys used listened to on detroit radio or across the border in c- shied being rapper himself was he with. Oh yeah yes. He sure you've never really nervous in separate q tip and i think he was nervous during bust. Arrive those to a thing maybe another. But he's all diddy made him a little nervous. i think. That's just puff but q tip. He was definitely like. I could tell you with bit like all bed. This is the dude right. You're the reason i do this. So that's always interesting to be in front of that kind of person i think. Yeah yeah Telling us some friends of mine that he will coming on and you know obviously everyone if you want you roll through the credit said russell peters name pops up People know him sort of heard is story even if you watch a standup stuff. He's got a dj saying stuff right. The how how did he become involved. Yes so he's just a friend. Yeah yeah. I need a friend of mine. I asked him for hurts number and he said he said come over. He was in toronto. Come from breakfast. I went and had breakfast. And he's like kay. I'll call her but You probably have to pay him. Southern yet cool. We got that worked out. You don't wanna pay pioneers. Because it's their time and everybody knows her hip a right. Not like i was gonna make but it was something new first time and of course russell so funny is they all come back. We had breakfast. I remember going back to spot. He's come upstairs sitting there the shirt off just hanging out home russell. You see this. And so then. He's got his on speaker and he's like oh don't say anything i got hurt and so i'm like okay quiet sitting there. I'm like certain excited. Because he's going to ask him for us. Get hurt number does interviews man. That was the thing that was there and we were really worried about that. Part of the so idle and i bugged rpd. I said hey. Can you call the degree to call. Then he puts me on speaker with her like immediately. I'm basically gotten hurt. But we're doing that. You know literally. I think about later. It was happening. And then i continued to use his rolodex because he had contacts to some all the old school guy and then he had this party in his fortieth birthday party in new york at. I went and i took the opportunity to talk to everybody. But the project talk mellie mell begun. Cain eric b. Never gonna intervene. calgary magic Cast forever catches educated. Me about stuff. And so then. After i left that i just said scott and sam at banger mccain. Oh what do you think about making slowed executive producer. He's really gonna help us. And it's not gonna cost us anything because he didn't really ask for a fee he knew hadn't really budget for it so it was just a name and so the that i just added them and it's really worked out well because you hook me up with a lot of people i think. He hit his threshold though in season. Three 'cause he died weather app at at a certain point. I think he loves it but he doesn't really best with new stuff out the heck way. How does he know all these people. Well he had. I think russell a dj in toronto and any hung out. You know mastermind the dj Yeah he was he was on slow forever flow frigging fired idiots inland I really think they exclude. But okay. I digress but he hung out with him he did. He hosted his mix tapes so he would host those. And i think he got to know like greg nice and a bunch of those kind of nice and smooth all those toronto. There'd be a lot of collection of people from running back in the day because remember there'd be a lot of any type ernest. Come in play all the time in toronto. So i think he got to know those guys and then by the time he was out in the road those guys would be at shows and then they would bring a friend and then he would meet the russel's dude and i think he got to meet melly really early at As and i couldn't be with us up because he probably has some deeper friends in it. But i know he is good friends with a feud real. Dj to dj spin I think i got to know the red alert him. And it just started the trickle. He told me one time run. Bmc radish show rather than a bad so cool they do in itself. I think he just hung out on like one of his best. Buddies is lord. Finesse learn phonetic lives lot at russell's had so he's entrenched in any keeps touch with any supports them to right so yeah i mean it all anyway can so yeah that it made a ton of sense for him to be the and i'm proud that he was involved in a so so i stayed at his place a lot too. I will make that. Give them a little props in l. I wait for like two weeks for ice cube. But i stayed for two straight weeks yes. Russell lives nicely too. So it's not the worst place to hang up or no doubt so so much earlier. You know being a kid listening to hip hop and sunday telling the stories of rack. He's don't stories. You know when you guys doing this production you know. Did you ever think it ended up winning a people an emmy. Hell no and i don't respect. I started hoping for domination. Really wants to or more to but no the peabody thing was really great because it was a guy who was on the committee who saw it at he was here for was only on. Hbo canada and he saw their here. He was here for hotdogs or something like no. He saw hotdogs. That's what it was. And then that's when he got a copy of it and he submitted we didn't nominate ourselves. Get the nominate yourself or peabody. He nominated out so it was out of nowhere. We got this like. Oh you're nominate peabody award and we're like wow that's incredible and then to win. It was surprising to. I remember seeing him. It was just so funny because he was pretty business. But i thought it was great. He was just a you know like maybe like a fifty five year old black on black guy dude and he was on that committee. I didn't know really know his background. I should dig it up some. I've lost sort of track of but that's pretty cool. It was quite a surprise and then the enemy yet they were both the emmy we were up for the emmy all the people that we're gonna win in our category but the peabody was a pleasant surprise ice good on the resume. That's for damn sure to notice to that point talking about some of your newer projects. Starboy over there you know star by some of the new projects led to produce that product. It's called scarborough boys directed by mason. We really don't have a partner for. I'm actually working on cutting some sizzles. We're trying to figure out what it is a little bit. But we've got wayne simmons who you know. Obviously you've got signed by leaps. I think this year so. That's pretty exciting. Simmons a awesome guy. What a good dude. And chris and anthony stuart their brothers. Recently retired. anthony was on ocoee night. Chris doesn't minnesota now. He just retired and joel. Ward who stanley cup winner didn't ward. Oh have like two huge stanley cup game. Seven goals in his career like he was a walk on. Your mind is like dennis. Rodman less the weirdness but that sort of story And then Devante pally is the last and he's a little younger but like just a crew who all came from this one area of scarborough and they played in this one program called skill put together by guiding kirk burgess and kevin weekes who played goalie in the nhl for many years. Yeah so those guys just wanted to give black kids place to play and also be able to be themselves because hockey is pretty close my dad and white and conservative. I think that's funny. Part about people get it. Say it's always like white and racist. And i'm like it's really conservative to like there is. You can't have dreads. You know you can't even think if you are a touch flamboyant you're you can be put aside forever like there's been guys who have broken through but get really fuck yourself by just being a dick or saying something and i don't think a lot of those storrow boys those i call them. That is the collective name that. I don't think that they really always felt supported. And that's what that skills they did. So in the meantime they all become super tight and become really you know h l pro players and some of their stories are just like. You're not even i think stories in the nba. Where you know there are people who come from lower class income neighborhood to have had these breakthrough stories but hockey does not have those stories because it costs you know. It costs a lot of money to play hockey. i never played. My parents. couldn't afford it. So but those guys just they were so damn good and they fought so hard. That link i think anthony's at one time he never they didn't pay the pay for hockey. Just so damn good getting twenty goals games like some crazy stuff So those guys broke through. Yeah so we're working on that one. But like i said that. Mark frazier who used to play for the maple. Leafs use the fence. Pay play for at ottawa New jersey he recently retired to. He brought us that idea because it was something that they they're known in the nhl that crew you're black and you're those guys are in the league. They'll they reached out to everybody like that's what they'd do. They'd be like how come come up the barbecue a school that you need that what you start to hear their stories you understand that brotherhood like hockey has its own brotherhood. But we always say that you belong to them and said this that they're like they're the brotherhood within that so it's cool it yet. I hope that has that has some legs. I hope that rem breakthrough for people. But we're really in the early stage figure out where that could go with that defense or telling non or trying to tell non music story. Yeah they're all. We always try to bring our little of music into you. Know like with the soundtrack stuff but no not really. I think for us. That's why i think. If i might break through because you just stories at you're trying to tell that stories of music and i feel like that's where a lot of music service they don't see the right anything found footage and good music cues are gonna win but if you go through and do it act five five act structure properly which we work with in hip hop of aleutian than you're gonna get right. You know nice yeah you. You've got a bunch of stories that have come out of hip hop evolution. Seems you try to stories whether it's that the one that needs to talk in. Dj tracker sort of corporate pockets companies. So that's an amtrak and shaheem. Reid brought that to them. And it's a ten or twenty part series. Actually two seasons series about mix tapes history mix tapes instead of the conflicts and craziness. Obviously that was a bootlegging thing. Yeah that one's pretty cool there. I don't know the hosted patch that. But i think that there's really close to announcing a really awesome host Yeah we've gotten into podcast. That was something we wanted to do before. it's weird. I literally just got an email from a track the extremely email me often. So but yeah. We're doing another podcast with shed creative agency and for audible called highly legal. And that's about. Can i talk about this Well i'm thinking about their end. I don't give too much away. But and that's about looking at cannabis legalization in canada. So we really try to get. We're going to do tasks i come from. You know doing a little bit of radio. Cbc and regan. Just he's a writer and a really smart critic and he also just loved that form so we we really plan on doing that so yeah hopefully we'll give you more i. It's been pretty find. It's actually kept the lights on during code do so. That's been nicer. i've not show. I filmed some of the scarborough. Boys might go to the states and film next week. But i'm in two weeks. But i'm not sure yet but that before it's for inches and add him spain. The bills pay the bills. Yeah you got it. It's been tricky kobe. You know we were really ready to rock with our empty scenario media and we We just had a lot of stuff. I think we're not alone. The brakes put on get back to some kind of. I miss the field. I have not been home this long in probably two decades. So every ask you this sort of bring up starting the new company. Why leave banger films to start. The i sort of bring projects and sort of saying that spot where you've found this success. Yeah i always had. I always consider myself a bit of a freelancer. Even when i wasn't much music and cbc ambassador. I never really identified in that world. And i actually someone who greg knows matt aunts and and i when we were really younger we had a pretty successful little production company dome for five years so we had kids and couldn't couldn't take the risks and i feel at this stage in my life. I can take those risks and having like you said doing hip hop evolution. You have that production shops. Yeah i just. I'm forty seven. I'm doing it for twenty three years so it felt like the right time. And i felt like i met the right person do with with migo. We have a lot of sensibilities. Yeah you nothing can take away from bang. Really whole crew is amazing. I'll probably work with again. But it just seemed like the or good timing always wanted to do it. We had to projects that we were. We failed steph or to d studios with still working on Premier studio and that was when we were like. Oh we can do this. But i'll also tell you it has been really hard so yeah i would. Yeah it's hard. You gotta deal with a lot of things. You don't even think about and i was warned so but i feel like you know once you have those sort of breakthroughs you see the you can see where it's going and hopefully we got some breakthroughs. We have some really cool exciting stuff that is coming down the pipeline to so. I'm really happy about where we're at considering. Calvin i just sorta chock it up. I feel like we're when you say something that you're just like everybody's going through this so we're not everybody. Jeff bezos and making a zillion because yeah because of it. But yeah i mean i hope i answer your question just timing. Yeah i would not that place and there's lots of fish in the sea. Banger was great. I love the mean that crew that workload hip hop evolution over there the editors that music clearance the production managers for all the editors and all the post production the crew the and all the way down to the pretty it was pretty good machine We were killing it by the end of it. All and considering you're chasing hip hop artis man. It feels like a bit of a feat that we pulled off. Yeah so so before we wrap it up. Yes things one one more question that was that we like to solicit questions people. Listen sure so ironically. It's from the person that you started off this podcast with and what maze would like to know aka. What music artists are you most ashamed to like. Oh jeez if i told this thing. He knows his list is really long. I don't know if ashamed is the word. So i got to think about a little bit because i listened some pretty embarrassing music which i chalked up really liking days. Oh i know it would probably be ed sheeran cheering because he saw the new and cheesy. But i really. I started to go. Like i started the really liked some of the songs and then when i started looking and this guy's super cheesy own grass. Wow he's also really talented towns mu. Yeah maybe that's maybe that's like a populist answer but for me that's pretty But i also like that. I like some really cheesy like blue eyed soul about his yacht. Rock as you can get even like bernie higgins. I can go pretty bad. Maybe he has an answer for me. That i'm forgetting going. I don't know whether a whether he was whether he knew the answer. You was fishing for i. I like to put myself like embarrassed myself. Some of my musical choices so we for sort of exit of a lot of people love to hate on nickel back. What's your opinion. yeah i saw. Let's the lead singer dame chad kroeger once even that ban air from france. Like art sounding subdued. Do you know. I saw them at the house. I remember chad from nickelback with her. Fuck is heating. So maybe he's actually cool. But then i mean they have that you look so much better with something in your mouth. You know that song. I'm like you know at least motley crue. we're like blatant. They didn't put out a logo. Lewisville they were like just scumbags like be pickier lane nickelback member. They had actually member. My roommate liked them a lot. And i would much music when they were around to. You know in fact. We did a road trip with for the new music with george robinson it at a cameraman make jerky corbett went. That song came out The big one your mind and you could literally turn the dial in the state in that arkansas on man. Yeah it was wild. So i can't take anything away from them. They definitely knocked out of the park for that reason but i wish they weren't canadian. I wish they were frigging and somewhere else. Sure they're great guys. I was actually expecting a different answer. Your yeah yeah. I don't really like that kind of music to might go into. What would be someone similar to them out. That's where you're actually. You really got me there. That's like not by. Aor of that era like early two thousands shit. I like sloan and snobby about that kind of stuff. But but then i'll listen to To israel or this other one. I i saw this song. Oh god here. I'm going to look at it because it's so embarrassing. This might be the what. I think it but you ever like a song when you're just put you in a time here. Ok hit some crush by jennifer age. You know oh gosh it's like again carr's office lose it the worst so you already answers for us. Yeah last question always is. What's in your ear buds right now. Oh what have i been listening to. Well yes i was listening to. I always listen to old music. But i do love This group called. I wish i knew how to say their name very well. It's been i think a called It's k. h. No one's going to get this k. H. r. u. a. n. g. b. i n. They have they haven't album called mordechai from sent an they're awesome so they play like sort of I would say like bunk but new funk with a there's a song also they have with To leon bridges who's a ten from houston texas. They're terrific. Yeah that would be my group right now. But i also listened to. I've been listening to red bone. You know that old dumb indigenous group from states. Yeah they had that song that movie sometimes movies. It's on the mix tape with the mortar markle. One of the more guardians of the galaxy wasn't the galaxy their big song on that. Yeah so i'm always listening to the old stuff. Yeah what's your black jersey. Say back there greg. i'm blind. That is the tragically hip. Oh that is the hip all right on. Kind of a it's a. It's a signed jersey. That when kelly got together back in two thousand three. We moved her families in together into sold my house.

Yeah i got gotta de representative reading actual fact green learned star while ago that when i wear a hat it means. I haven't had time shower today. So i feel you. Yeah gobert right like a cova here laying like it's just the. I don't think this has been interesting for us because we're at five. Been gun because you can. We've had some trying to pinch. Td shows and whatnot. We've had interesting. Zoom calls with people. Never get meeting so really. And it's funny we were talking to monte lipman. Who's the president of universal. Like and he's in sweats and a hat. And you're just like yeah officer. Wouldn't be like this. Yeah yeah you never know high. The following podcast is brought to you by radical road brewery. The best craft beer in the heart of leslie. Bill find eleven. Seventy seven queen street east. That's radical road brewery. Hey my name is darby wheeler. I'm a producer filmmaker director from aereo ontario originally. But i've lived in toronto for the last twenty years. I mostly known for directing hip hop evolution. That was on netflix. because at forever Almost a decade of my life. But i also used to produce at george straub lobola tonight which was previously our which i think previously that and had another name but i i also produced for radio produce podcast for a company that i'm working for now which i am owner and Co-founder i'm productions. We're really excited. About scenario. it set a new endeavor. Taken our expertise myself rigo baskin. Who wrote hip bubba lucien in bringing some cool content to the world we hope and i just wanna say welcome to the music. Oh welcome to music's gonna screw it up and down. That's what i say. Welcome to music. I picture william shatner walk. That's a spiel. So you can feel free to edit that down if you know that that's awesome. Welcome where it so excited to have you on. I mean i know the mutual friend for many many years. Yeah let's just talk about him the whole time like you and i can fry filled as as the. There's lots of material there with that guy. That's probably one of those like less crazy story. But i know this story that. I think we'll be for another podcast limits. There's there's enough for a whole season stories about me. Yeah well we're we're we're really excited. To have you on board knowingness really wanna start diving in. We do wanna talk about you know that we also focus on some new projects or germ. Outbreak will start about evolution. I know a bit from mace but well not feeding get. I'd love to tell us a bit about you. Know your history in terms of your love for hip hop. Because i know that's a lot of what you brought to the production but try to turn. I love hip hop. It's funny for me. Because i felt like if i could've named the series i would've called it rap evolution but obviously we take an up and made it music. But obviously if you if you're if you really want to do your work in history and it's something we sort of. Don't we touch on it because it's part of the culture now and it's sort of been taken over as an art form and people mostly think about wrapping and music and that's what they call hip hop but if pop is obviously a whole bunch elements you know you have graffiti and break dancing. There's dj there's also emceeing and then as always coined knowledge was one of the things. I always like that part of it like learning about break beats. That was always hop to timmy. Right but as far as buying rap records i used to go to detroit. Mostly right went by my good friend. Justice beaubourg. I would hijack his parents car and go to various record stores in detroit. I wasn't at what i got to know. Some of the people from doing hip hop evolution. They weren't always the best ones are. You guys are way but we were canadian. Kids coming over there. I was really turned onto hip hop via the radio over detroit. Because i would get. I was really lucky. I grow cereal real interior to rate pretty much like southwest on tehran towards windsor leamington area. Right on lake erie. so you get cleveland. Radio get detroit and yeah just opened my mind. A black music mostly jazz at first and then getting into hip hop. I remember hearing boogie down productions. My parents are waiting for them. They're the dentist it's I'm still number one. That song i just remember being like. Oh i gotta go get that record next week in troy. And that's been do. We would buy shoes over the air and mostly records. Yeah that's where i got turned onto. I think for me to coming. I was always into a deeply into it. Felt privilege when i came to trot to be able to shows little easier than driving to detroit because my parents have flip out a little bit. Detroit was still pretty tough breed. Tough back then but they let me go to shows. I saw p. e. once like really early on i remember flav like we were like the me and my two will like the only white kids in the crowd. We thought and flayed came out gave us the towns just to be like. Hey guys you know. I don't know if he was going like they're cool but it was pretty funny. He came right at sideline for the show bound us. Oh but yeah. That was always something that i found. I don't know why identify with the pop and a real cause i. I'm just a white kid. I think at that time there's a ton of white kids probably like you know even like you grow kids our age. I mean even non black kids you know getting into hip hop because it was something. There's something really cool about it. It was new fresh and dangerous. I mean i'm always attracted to that kind of music. I love pop music but like a little bit grown more liking pop music but when i was younger the clash and that those kind of groups that were dangerous were always the best ones and public enemy represented that to me seeing them and they had the militant guy s. W's come your whoa. What is going on here. You know and then you proceed like i like that part of it too because like i said you do the knowledge thing and you would delve into a break beats came in. Do you might also read malcolm x. Biography chuck said something about it right. So i don't know if. I answered your question there. It's pretty complicated complex. I might even answer differently. Sometimes because i don't even really remember except buying records and by. Did you guys ever do that for rapper. You'd just by a record on a cover. I did that a lot. Yeah yeah yeah even seoul. Yeah three feet. High rise undercover. I was like wow. This looks cool or these guys and then record store guides at all. Put it on something and i heard me myself. I've ever oh. Then i remember you go on the next leap and seeing it on this video show that used to be on in detroit on channel sixty one and i was like. Oh i'm glad i bought this now. That record is maybe top. Five record for me i. It changed my life. Yeah that's cool. How i was. I was really curious about how white guy gets to do. So much work in Rap music about music and stuff You know did you ever think back when you were a young kid. Crossing the border to go see public enemy that one day you would tell stories about rap music not not really not particularly i remember i feel like from where i came from and i think my mom all her friends and my they would tell you that what i'm doing is what i should have been doing because i started doing it back then. I play with cameras and do but being documenting the history of rap. I i'll tell you one thing. Though man. i used to get really bummed about And this is a little bit later on when i was in toronto about the lack of good documentation of palm. There's some good books that came up really around when we were doing. Hit by a little bit before but we like Can't stop won't stop. That's a really great book And then you know. Dan charles did one. Call the big payback. But that's more like business but he touches on the origins. There's a few. I have them all behind me but that i remember being really frustrated by the lack of documentation that i remember watching like in my little apartment getting to see something that maybe much music aired in or something but it would be. Bbc documentary about reggae music. And i would be like. Oh why did they do it. So well that all access and you really learn where came from and the culture. And i thought that hip hop had done a really good job in my. Is you know it wasn't that old. It's not that old. Forty some odd years. That also. But i always was frustrated by that i would say that was something that i could say when when we go and i were starting to am banger films produced by bluejean when we started thinking of the early things like this has never really been done. Well there's lots of guys who like. I remember curtis blow told me he filmed a bunch of stuff way back in the day but it was something about the quality that didn't really jive with him but man he pretty much was doing what we were doing. So so how did you wanna touch on banger. Earlier a huge fan mental evolution. He adds greatly my came out of the punk side yet music. I know enough about. That's that's for sure. But i'm really interested in all like loving that in bangor films. How did you get involved with bam films to eventually produce these. I went well at the time. I didn't come in their beliefs and they came to me. But i always was is at georgia's show tromble worked there be previous working on. Why worked a couple jobs in between. But that was one of my jobs. I always been sort of spewing doing a history of bob. Why are people without clerk stories right. So i think when scott and sam did metal evolution. They had a lot of people in their ear going. Oh so into hip hop. They didn't they weren't not ob gyns at all. They're obviously seen an on camera. I think he loves base and break beats and only early shit but he hasn't really no hip hop music. So yeah. I just came in to interview to talk about a bunch of stuff and they said no. We're going to do that. And so that i just sort of help. Originally i helped sort of is going to produce maybe not directed but i think it just slowly morphed into the fact that i knew the most i sort of had the chops to do it and people that are talking to was pretty obvious that i should have directed. I think that's where it came to getting we. Yeah i think just brought better ideas to the thing. And then i also started to hire people that i do. Yeah it was pretty organic. But it took forever greg because we i literally did worked on for more show shows for or previous republic blues sitting there waiting for a green light to going be on this channel confuse in the us at one point and that little the way for some reason and then it wet hbo. Canada showed up the kathleen. Meet she at a debt. Randy lennox nee. Sort of got behind and robin over there johnson. They got behind and made it happen. Show scott and sam for doing the work to get someone to convince someone to do. I think it's a hard sell. I know everybody loves that. Show man but it's pretty niece right so it's not it's it's pretty interesting working in production no Now i have a lot of people say we want to do. What do you think of this. That i i literally sorta roll my eyes a little bit these days. Because i think it. So we shall. We got lucky at the time. dr hope. that's not the case. But i feel like it might be asche delegate when i talked about of even other genres right people talk electronic model. And you said. I've talked about forty six or it doesn't necessarily always work particularly if you don't have the background of the passion behind the leafs. Sure i would agree with that. Yeah for sure. There was something to that knowing what we had rules or hip hop evolution. Like we tried to make it always Yet sort of feel or the way we did the script you were like at the time there. Chad sorta knew what he was doing. Because it's different a metal evolution in a lot of ways. Sam was on a journey in discovering. But it i think for hip For that was a little bit different and their personalities are different to sam can really not gamma. There's an episode. Sam eight lincoln park in metal evolution. Love that episode. I think that's a real right. But i don't know if shad would do that. You just s not is personality. 'cause he's also an artist so he i'm not gonna shit on your stuff like someone obviously loves it so we did give him a little bit of he had knowledge and that was real too. I think sam was really discovering Chattanooga do the basic stuff that we learned a lot but yeah so. I'm not sure by your question man but a little bit roundabout you're on here. I know i know. Pass fail right there. There was like a dutch company. That had their choppy. Surf is doing stuff in wolfe's dirty. You mentioned earlier. That was tame your journey six or seven. I made that up a little bit but yeah was in question. But why why did it take. Is you know soon as you watch even if you watched sort of episode one or the first year. That was it i. That's a great story. I mean you could argue today. The pop music today is rap. Pop music similar only daria. They're talking about pop music. You talking about hip hop drake kim. Yeah i get some some still the weekend rap but he's not and then ran aground day but yeah definitely i mean i think yeah. Go on the charts. It's obvious look at the dress. You know yeah. You tend to be niche. Is that still feel just music. Yeah so let me explain that a little bit. I think my partner would regal put this really well the other day. It's like it's music so if you take okay so then think about documentaries right. I don't think about this so you have two worlds in in production so you have scripted and unscripted. Scripted can be john rubens. So you know there's lots of layers and you can but most of the most or you know it can be a film or tv or as unscripted to saying you're gonna do. It's the lanes are smaller. Because you have reality yet food documentaries. The documentary is so small. It's like a sliver right. So what is that sliver. That is music documentaries right. That's the challenge. So that's what. I mean by niche in no way am isaiah papas nation and back. We try to convey to these people that were trying to sell shows to make shows with that. Hey man like these guys are dominating the conversation these days get real looking at what he do his. Yeah look at social media like people. I know you always wanna look to people but you know what ends up happening is when people look to certain art forms. Those aren't informed slowly grow up. You know like it was funny. I was thinking about the other day. There was a picture of like jay z. And i think french montana and they look like the most sophisticated you know. Cool dude that ever seen. I always like to think that we're we're on the streets doing serious like crazy business. You know like the inspiration to where they come from the wearing the irs. Pretty mind blowing but they give you pull back like music history. You'll see similarities in the past there. You know frank sinatra wasn't a angel turner not. Maybe that's a bad example. But i don't want to throw turton examples. But i know there's some really interesting Backgrounds in music is not as clean and fresh as we think it could be also. I actually think that's changing that part of its flying away because these guys are so visible down you know. Maybe that's a good thing. But yeah i don't know i like i go back to like you like metal. You said greg. I used to like my rockstars crazy and dangerous and a little bit wild right but maybe they still are. Maybe i'm just old. Probably because there are like i think it's a little bit. Yeah it's a different kind of danger than it used to be. We want our stars to be socially conscious we want them to be on. The right side of history is very different now. Yeah like would. We really cared. If someone went in like back in the day ronald baby bigger younger but like little wayne. Everybody freaked out. Z like trauma capitalist pig. You know using this. You are we that surprised. I don't know. I think it's the black thing that i think. Most people are like. Dude you really let it that. This guy sort him a racist if he's not a racist he's really enabling racist right. So but i think that in the end hip out pretty capitalist music so that takes over the reins for your thinking of what benefits you you know. And isn't really wayne's responsibility for me. I wish he would have not even bothered but is responsibility to not represent himself if he doesn't feel a certain way and you should he. I don't know we're just world is changing as would say that's another podcast as well. Yes that's a heavy shit. I get myself in trouble too. Because i'm pretty feel like some friends that are pretty right. Leaning i still hang with them is not racist. There's just we lost the plot. I think there should be like yeah. Well also it's like. Does he feel like it's not like it's divided like five in the states. Everybody's like oh there's two sides i'm about five different sides in the states these days anyway nothing is ever as they say black and white right. There's always right. Yeah nuances everywhere you know. Yeah hip hop is dude like. I don't wanna put me on. Hipaa hip hip ops documentaries music block of the for sure enough unless you're jay z. Story you walk into them. They're all right. Well for of course was. Was there ever talk. You know being that you guys banger. Canadian production company that. Let's tell a canadian story or was it always now again. I did watch the medal. evelyn. Since i don't know yet they need that global they didn't touch candid. I don't think maybe a little bit rush rush. So was that sort of the thinking of this is going to be a discordant. American story really. Yeah i mean. I think if up stories is an american story so i think you can't. I mean we can go if if we were gonna do an international thing and jump off then. We have to go to france. I before candidates really. Yeah because there is a trip that bam bhatta took a delay people back by right. Maybe freddie set up by brady futura the graffiti artist of there's a bunch of rock crew. They all went their way early. Like to maybe even earlier. I can remember. I'm probably right. I'm pretty good with my dates. But the Minnesota really conceded said. But i am pretty good my sorry but yeah that you'd have to do that before. Yeah if you're poor candida arguably. I love candidate story. It's pretty dope. If there was another season which is not going to be. I would love to have gone what we tried to do. As you focused on peak so the peak in the memphis story of the three six mafia. How do you get there to tell. Their story that connected. So you'd have to be you'd wanna get to drake that's the peak and then you'd work backwards probably right because toronto doesn't have a moment dill drake but hip hop. I mean you can say all you want about it. But i think people would probably admit i really respect. I'm not taking any respect from hip hop from your cause. It's no sure like michigan was battling day west toward the pub academy. There's you fill it a socrates at a moment. I really liked his cardinals special. But it really happens. When break is breakthrough toronto. And i have to share a story with you so go ahead i come to episode podcast number one hundred for welcome. Welcome to the music. Welcome and the special guest was meister. Oh cool it was really cool until the host os turns to meister on goes so tell me about the time you're working with so crates and oh my god meisters. Sorry look hang every time every time. Stockings come up a half story so crepes. Yeah yeah yeah okay go ahead. You're you're just put of buried a bit less reactive lap. Yes he was. Sworn i sorry time. Visit was hosted up at the upstairs of betty's or whatever it is oh yeah. Yeah i went up there did that. Podcast with Sammy sammy yeah. That was fun. Actually yeah yeah so you got west to come bars so that probably work. Yeah it was good to get me to go to. Yeah for sure yes well. Normally we do record this at steve's place down a radical road okay once once we get past cova and we'll do an episode of this with you and we'll do it over a couple of dirt road deal beers over a different project. Talk about the hip hop evolution. Might be my last For a while. I can't i can't run that thing too long but i'm proud of it. Don't get me wrong but yeah always happy to talk about rap. That's still if so. Let's get a couple more questions often. And the toggle hip hop illusion not told me covers too so okay cocoa. So kelly one. My wife wanted to know yep time listeners never listens to us as how receptive were the artists to being involved and were there any like taboo subjects. You weren't allowed to touch on yet. Probably the probably like be a specific interview but man. I don't think many yeah. That was the beauty of the showed me. Is you know the we went to see. This is the older catholic even the southern dudes to like there was this time. I remember once on cool mode. And he's like man. It took canadian. The comedown do this. You know he was sort of a bit. Like what the and. I think that that part of it once we actually started the interviews. They got really into it and like yeah. They were impressed by the work we done and trying to be Like you're doing a documentary so it was a of its discovery so you want to talk to them and say hey is this legit. You know like it influenced was hurt really influenced by jamaican. Not really he was sorta rebelling against it right so then. Yeah because everybody says oh. Jamaica and hip hop necessarily connected. 'cause west india people made it. But if you do your homework there's a bit of a misnomer right so but overall was great. I never have any one orson. We did three hundred interviews almost two hundred nine hundred and one person call and was mad about their makeup. That was about it and that was after the series went out. Yeah it was a man and then But taboo subjects. I don't think we ever got anyone to tell us not to talk. Killing was asking more on the east coast coach. She didn't oh. Yeah oh shit yeah sure. Okay yeah actually this from my memories. Yeah that was pretty actually. Good good observation like kelly. Yeah that was pretty heavy actually we. I interviewed most bream. Who has to pox brother and after it was done we had a really good relationship with fox real estate and they were gonna clear music for us and then a at the end all out in. I don't know if they were overly happy. I set the I don't dislike in their feelings a little bit. Because i thought it was pretty clear as mostly about the records we never really took too many shots poc and big because i love them both. I think vital artists but it was definitely that. Yeah i could probably do a whole podcast on that for sure. Is that why wheel. Sorry about their rivalry real at east coast west coast immediately by was immediate thing. I think mostly but that's a early. Yeah it's a little bit of both to answer your question. Yeah it's it's when you start to look at it like if you read about it. It's so it's really dumb. It's really dumb. So yeah i think everybody. Yeah i mean you see snoop in that episode that we have like i feel like the same as an mouth on e. It's his people but he's almost like man. It did not have to go like this. It was just really dumb and both sides are to blame you know. I think that's the real end of it. I think they're all they're all a little. I think it really still hurts all those people. But it's a little past it now that you know. How time does that. It'll just heal. These big big went into the rock and roll hall of the other weekend rights are yesterday sunday. So yeah i mean yeah that was that would be. That's completely like i'm sure there's a couple of other ones. There's rivalries all over that damn documentary. Southern guys would have it the yet. Yeah there's a couple of those kinds of things. Yeah oh you know what's funny story. This is a good one. We were interviewing the sugarhill gang in inglewood new jersey and they had such bad blood sugar hill records who they used the. Beyond and bobby robinson and sylvia robertson will soviet label older. They're long gone but kids had beef with the two guys who are doing. There's like two different sugarhill gains whole documentary about it actually allow think it's called. You stole my name or something like that. So i can't eat up. Check that at google. That if you're looking for that but it's about the chicago began losing your identity and we're doing the interviews. They just sanitized. They kept covered by playing loud music. We're trying to shoot outside. They had this please. Dude comes because they complain that we're still being outside of a permanent. Please guide comes. He's the dj for the sugarhill gang. Guys who have interviewing the cop. He's like sorry guys. I gotta. I gotta go. We end up going into this pizza. Shop criss cross where they actually met is so the crispy crust guys like. I'm not gonna. He actually locked the door and said screw them. This is bs right. But i ended up getting to low both sides of that camp and it's interesting An interesting day. That's for sure was the personally your most blown away by sony. People dream are filming. a fanta. must've been amazing but pretty cool to me. Cool her tell you that much. Yeah yes pretty cool. He was great. Get him to be that warm and open pretty amazing. He's not no. But i always just like. Oh wow you know. He's like mythical but for me. My favorite is one of chris. Was there Continuing with the thread of a memorable moments. You know people say you should never meet your heroes right. So i am wondering as a huge fan of rap and hip hop Was there a time as you're making this regal. I cannot stand these guys over are no music anymore to be so. Yeah no is your music. I hated it. No i'm thirty months the opposite Piece of music. Yeah someti- oh that's funny. Music like italy tiger with the west coast beep is a song called. Can i swear fuck compton by Why am i play on his name right now. All oh god it. He's bustle dude and he started. This song sucks. Oh i think the opposite. I just so pleasantly surprised by people. Yeah not really We've had a to stand us up. I don't even think that happened late. I mean hip hop music. So it is but everybody's pretty cool and what we've got started yet chad. Who so cool more and us you know. We're not coming from me. I would be just opened with people. Come what we're looking for the benefit. I think about snoop link. I sent the snoop. I'd vilma stupid pass. And i said this is a little different because we're going to ask you some pretty heavy stuff about east coast west coat pocket. He's like i'm in doing so he didn't. He wasn't your typical snoop right but then at the end i said. Hey we're also ask you about freestyle fellowship. And all this crazy l. a. undergrad stuffing's. Oh i love that. I don't even know some so deep into that right so is he got excited. I was like when you ask people about stuff. Not about them than they can talk. Way like q tip talking about jay della used like late lights up. We might ask him or like. Tell us about your process. It's funny when no not one bad. I can't think i could only be forgetting something. But i'm pretty sure i've mentioned this before. I don't think there is anybody who yet people are releases and stuff but other than that slew sales. Yeah how'd you land on actually what we needed a canadian host. That's for one thing not to take anything away from mr bongo and an upbeat. A few other people talked about what he seemed like a blank. Slate and i'll tell you what chad at i sort of knew him and he's super chill like he's about as chill as it gets. He's not he's very smart. Bright guy and talk about anything. Very nice can hang with anybody. But he's so like. I think he'd rather have naps all day than really deal with watch youtube basketball highlights but that was what was the benefit. He traveled with us with another first class ticket. You're dealing with a documentary Really tricky right. So you're yeah. He's sitting with us. He's loading crew gear. It was j cole or who had crossed our mind back in the day. Because he's such a student would have been different. You would have been had to deal with their manager and you know like have been just a nightmare not to take anything away from those guys but having shad just Our benefit is part of the team and really with us made it so much easier. But yeah i think the answer your question. He was a blank slate. Young artists cared about rap. It's not as i love like rodriguez. And i are that brain that moves through it but he. That's what's beautiful about discovering as he goes and i think we actually really educated them. That was something along the way. Oh sure yeah. That came across though i in his his thirst for learning. That's real israel. Yeah that's real apron. Remember the day that we did hurt early on 'em being like oh. Wow that was really like you could tell we're onto something near what what's he ever eight. Oh you know you're sort of meeting your you know your heroes. The guys used listened to on detroit radio or across the border in c- shied being rapper himself was he with. Oh yeah yes. He sure you've never really nervous in separate q tip and i think he was nervous during bust. Arrive those to a thing maybe another. But he's all diddy made him a little nervous. i think. That's just puff but q tip. He was definitely like. I could tell you with bit like all bed. This is the dude right. You're the reason i do this. So that's always interesting to be in front of that kind of person i think. Yeah yeah Telling us some friends of mine that he will coming on and you know obviously everyone if you want eat you roll through the credit said russell peters name pops up People know him sort of heard is story even if you watch a standup stuff. He's got a dj. I'd playing stuff right. The how how did he become involved. Yes so he's just a friend. Yeah yeah. I need a friend of mine. I asked him for hurts number and he said he said come over. He was in toronto. Come from breakfast. I went and had breakfast. And he's like kay. I'll call her but You probably have to pay him. Southern yet cool. We got that worked out. You don't wanna pay pioneers. Because it's their time and everybody knows her hip a right. Not like i was gonna make but it was something new first time and of course russell so funny is they all come back. We had breakfast. I remember going back to spot. He's come upstairs sitting there the shirt off just hanging out home. Don't russell you see this. And so then he's got his on speaker and he's like oh don't say anything i got hurt and so i'm like okay quiet sitting there. I'm like certain excited. Because he's going to ask him for us. Get hurt number does interviews man. That was the thing that was there and we were really worried about that. Part of the so idle and i bugged rpd. I said hey. Can you call the degree to call. Then he puts me on speaker with her like immediately. I'm basically gotten hurt. But we're doing that. You know literally. I think about later. It was happening. And then i continued to use his rolodex because he had contacts to some all the old school guy and then he had this party in his fortieth birthday party in new york at. I went and i took the opportunity to talk to everybody. But the project recycling mellie mell begun. Cain eric b. Never gonna intervene. calgary magic Cast forever catches educated. Me about stuff. And so then. After i left that i just said this cotton sam at banger mccain. Oh what do you think about making slowed executive producer. He's really gonna help us. And it's not gonna cost us anything because he didn't really ask for a fee he knew hadn't really budget for it so it was just a name and so the that we just added them and it's really worked out well because you hook me up with a lot of people i think. He hit his threshold though in season. Three 'cause he died weather app at at a certain point. I think he loves it but he doesn't really best with new stuff out the heck way. How does he know all these people. Well he had. I think russell a dj in toronto and any hung out. You know mastermind the dj Yeah he was he was on slow forever flow frigging fired idiots inland I really think they exclude. Okay i digress. But he hung out with him he did. He hosted his mix tapes so he would host those. And i think he got to know like greg nice and a bunch of those kind of nice and smooth all those. There'd be a lot of collection of people from running back in the day because remember there'd be a lot of any type ernest. Come in play all the time in toronto. So i think he got to know those guys and then by the time he was out in the road those guys would be at shows and then they would bring a friend and then he would meet the russel's dude and i think he got to meet melly really early at As and i couldn't be with us up because he probably has some deeper friends in it. But i know he is good friends with a feud real. Dj to dj spin I think i got the no. Did you red alert him. And it just started the trickle. He told me one time run. Bmc radish show rather than a bad so cool they do in itself. I think he just hung out on like one of his best. Buddies is lord. Finesse learn phonetic lives lot at russell's had so he's entrenched in any keeps touch with any supports them to right so yeah i mean it all anyway can so yeah that it made a ton of sense for him to be the and i'm proud that he was involved in a so so i stayed at his place a lot too. I will make that. Give them a little props in l. I wait for like two weeks for ice cube. But i stayed for two straight weeks yes. Russell lives nicely too. So it's not the worst place to hang up or no doubt so so much earlier. You know being a kid listening to hip hop and sunday telling the stories of rack. He's don't stories. You know when you guys doing this production you know. Did you ever think it ended up winning a people an emmy. Hell no and i don't respect. I started hoping for domination. Really wants to or more to but no the peabody thing was really great because it was a guy who was on the committee who saw it at he was here for was only on. Hbo canada and he saw there. He was here for hotdogs or something like no. He saw hotdogs. That's what it was. And then that's when he got a copy of it and he submitted we didn't nominate ourselves. Get the nominate yourself or peabody. He nominated out so it was out of nowhere. We got this like. Oh you're nominate peabody award and we're like wow that's incredible and then to win. It was surprising to. I remember seeing him. It was just so funny because he was pretty business. But i thought it was great. He was just a you know like maybe like a fifty five year old black on black guy dude and he was on that committee. I didn't know really know his background. I should dig it up some. I've lost sort of track of but that's pretty cool. It was quite a surprise and then the enemy yet they were both the emmy we were up for the emmy all the people that we're gonna win in our category but the peabody was a pleasant surprise ice good on the resume. That's for damn sure to notice to that point talking about some of your newer projects. Starboy over there you know star by some of the new projects led to produce that product. It's called scarborough boys as directed by kwami mason. We really don't have a partner for. I'm actually working on cutting some sizzles. We're trying to figure out what it is a little bit. But we've got wayne simmons who you know. Obviously you've got signed by leaps. I think this year so. That's pretty exciting. Simmons a awesome guy. What a good dude. And chris and anthony stuart threes retired. Anthony was on ocoee night. Chris doesn't minnesota now. He just retired and joel. Ward who stanley cup winner didn't ward. Oh have like two huge stanley cup game. Seven goals in his career like he was a walk on. Your mind is like dennis. Rodman less the weirdness but that sort of story And then Devante pally is the last and he's a little younger but like just a crew who all came from this one area of scarborough and they played in this one program called skill put together by guiding kirk burgess and kevin weekes who played goalie in the nhl for many years. Yeah so those guys just wanted to give black kids place to play and also be able to be themselves because hockey is pretty close my dad and white and conservative. I think that's funny. Part about people say it's always like white and racist and i'm like it's really conservative to like there is. You can't have dreads. You know you can't even think if you are a touch flamboyant you can be put aside forever like there's been guys who have broken through but get really fuck yourself by just being a dick or saying something and i don't think a lot of those scarborough boys those i call them. That is the collective name that. I don't think that they really always felt supported. And that's what that skills they did. So in the meantime they all become super tight and become really you know h l pro players and some of their stories are just like. You're not even i think stories in the nba. Where you there are people who come from lower class income neighborhood to have had these breakthrough stories but hockey does not have those stories because it costs you know. It costs a lot of money to play hockey. i never played. My parents. couldn't afford it. So but those guys just they were so damn good and they fought so hard. That like i think anthony's at one time he never. They didn't pay the pay for hockey. Just so damn good getting twenty goals games like some crazy stuff So those guys broke through. Yeah so we're working on that one. But like i said that. Mark frazier who used to play for the maple. Leafs use the fence. Pay play for at ottawa broadway. New jersey he recently retired to. He brought us that idea because it was something that they they're known in the nhl that crew you're black and you're those guys are in the league. They'll they reached out to everybody like that's what they'd do. They'd be like how come come up the barbecue a school that you need that what you start to hear their stories you understand that brotherhood hockey has its own brotherhood but we always say that you belong to them and said this that they're like they're the brotherhood within that so it's cool it yet. I hope that has that has some legs. I hope that rem breakthrough for people. But we're really in the early stage figure out where that could go with that defense or telling non or trying to tell non music story. Yeah they're all. We always try to bring our little of music into you. Know like with the soundtrack stuff but no not really. I think for us. That's why i think. If i might break through because you just stories at you're trying to tell that story of music and i feel like that's where a lot of music service they don't see the right anything found footage and good music cues are gonna win but if you go through and do it act five five act structure properly which we work with in hip hop of aleutian than you're gonna get right. You know nice yeah you. You've got a bunch of stories that have come out of hip hop evolution. Seems you try to stories whether it's that the one that needs to talk in. Dj tracker sort of corporate pockets companies. So that's an amtrak and shaheem. Reid brought that to them. And it's a ten or twenty part series. Actually two seasons series about mix tapes history mix tapes instead of the conflicts and craziness. Obviously that was a bootlegging thing. Yeah that one's pretty cool there. I don't know the hosted patch that. But i think that there's really close to announcing a really awesome host Yeah we've gotten into podcast. That was something we wanted to do before. it's weird. I literally just got an email from a track the extremely email me often. So but yeah. We're doing another podcast with shed creative agency and for audible called highly legal. And that's about. Can i talk about this Well i'm thinking about their end. I don't give too much away. But and that's about looking at cannabis legalization in canada. So we really try to get. We're going to do tasks i come from. You know doing a little bit of radio at cbc. And regan just is. He's a writer and a really smart critic and he also just loved that form so we we really plan on doing that so yeah hopefully we'll give you more i. It's been pretty find. It's actually kept the lights on during code do so. That's been nicer not show. I filmed some of the scarborough. Boys might go to the states and film next week. But i'm arnav two weeks. But i'm not sure yet but that before it's for inches and add him spain. The bills pay the bills. Yeah you got it. It's been tricky kobe. You know we were really ready to rock with our empty scenario media and we We just had a lot of stuff. I think we're not alone. The brakes put on get back to some kind of. I miss the field. I have not been home this long in probably two decades. So every ask you this sort of bring up starting the new company. Why leave banger films to start the wine. I sort of bring projects and sort of saying that spot where you've found this success. Yeah i always had. I always consider myself a bit of a freelancer. Even when i wasn't much music and cbc ambassador. I never really identified in that world. And i actually someone who greg knows matt aunts and and i when we were really younger we had a pretty successful little production company dome for five years so we had kids and couldn't couldn't take the risks and i feel at this stage in my life. I can take those risks and having like you said doing hip hop evolution. You have that production shops. Yeah i just. I'm forty seven. I'm doing it for twenty three years so it felt like the right time. And i felt like i met the right person do with with remigio. We have a lot of sensibilities. Yeah you nothing can take away from bang. Really whole crew is amazing. I'll probably work with again but it just seemed like the good timing always wanted to do it. We had to projects that we were. We failed steph or to d studios with for still working on Premier studio and that was when we were like. Oh we can do this. But i'll also tell you it has been really hard so yeah i would. Yeah it's hard. You gotta deal with a lot of things. You don't even think about and i was warned so but i feel like you know once you have those sort of breakthroughs you see the you can see where it's going and hopefully we got some breakthroughs. We have some really cool exciting stuff that is coming down the pipeline to so. I'm really happy about where we're at considering. Calvin i just sorta chock it up like i feel like we're when you say something that you're just like everybody's going through this so we're not everybody. Jeff bezos and making a zillion because yeah because of it. But yeah i mean i hope i answer your question just timing. Yeah i would not that place and there's lots of fish in the sea. Banger was great. I love the mean that crew that workload hip hop evolution over there the editors that music clearance the production manager all the editors and all the post production the crew the and down to the pretty it was pretty good machine We were killing it by the end of it. All considering you're chasing hip hop artist man. It feels like a bit of a feat that we pulled off. Yeah so so before we wrap it up. Yes things one one more question that was that we like to solicit questions people. Listen sure so ironically. It's from the person that you started off this podcast with and what maze would like to know aka mason. What music artists are you most ashamed to like. Oh jeez if i told this thing. He knows his list is really long. I don't know if ashamed is the word. So i got to think about a little bit because i listened some pretty embarrassing music which i chalked up really liking days. Oh i know would probably be. Ed sheeran cheering because he saw the new and cheesy. But i really. I started to go. Like i started really liked some of the songs and then when i started looking and this guy's super cheesy own grass. Wow he's also really talented. Everytown mu yeah. Maybe that's maybe that's like a popular answer but for me that's pretty But i also like that. I like some really cheesy like blue eyed soul about his yacht. Rock as you can get even like bernie higgins. I can go pretty bad. Maybe he has an answer for me. That i'm forgetting going. I don't know whether a whether he was whether he knew the answer. You was fishing for i. I like to put myself like embarrassed myself. Some of my musical choices so we for sort of a of a lot of people love to hate on nickel back. What's your opinion. yeah i saw. Let's the lead singer dame chad kroeger once even that ban air from france. Like art sounding subdued. Do you know. I saw them at the house. I remember chad from nickelback with her. Fuck is heating. So maybe he's actually cool. But then i mean they have that you look so much better with something in your mouth. You know that song. I'm like you know at least motley. Crue blatant they didn't put out a logo. lewisville they were like just scumbags like be pickier lane nickelback member. They had actually remember. My roommate. liked them. A lot and i would much music when they were around to. You know in fact. We did a road trip with for the new music with george robinson it and a cameraman make jerky corbett went. That song came out The big one your mind and you could literally turn the dial in the state in that arkansas on man. Yeah it was wild. So i can't take anything away from them. They definitely knocked out of the park for that reason but i wish they weren't canadian. I wish they were frigging and somewhere else. Sure they're great guys. I was actually expecting a different answer. Your yeah yeah. I don't really like that kind of music to might go into. What would be someone similar to them out. That's where you're to. You really got me there. That's like not by. Aor of that era like early two thousands shit. I like sloan. I'm really snobby about that kind of stuff. But but then i'll listen to To israel or this other one. I i saw this song. Oh god here. I'm going to look at it because it's so embarrassing. This might be the what. I think it but you ever like a song when you're just put you in a time here. Ok hit some crush by jennifer age. You know oh gosh it's like again carr's office lose it the worst so you already answers for us. Yeah last question always is. What's in your ear buds right now. Oh what have i been listening to. Well yes i was listening to. I always listen to old music. But i do love This group called. I wish i knew how to say their name very well. It's been i think a called It's k. h. No one's going to get this k. H. r. u. a. n. g. b. i n. They have they haven't album called mordechai from sent an awesome so they play like sort of I would say like bunk but new funk with a there's a song also they have with To leon bridges who's a ten from houston texas. They're terrific. Yeah that would be my group right now. But i also listened to. I've been listening to red bone. You know that old dumb indigenous group from states. Yeah they had that song that movie sometimes movies. It's on the mix tape with the mortar markle. One of the more guardians of the galaxy wasn't the galaxy their big song on that. Yeah so i'm always listening to the old stuff. Yeah what's your black jersey. Say back there greg. i'm blind. That is the tragically hip. Oh that is the hip all right on. Kind of a it's a. It's a signed jersey. That when kelly got together back in two thousand three. We moved her families in together into sold my house.

I told you everything you need to use. You bought the man a pair of shorts because his were too short. They were kind of booty shorts and he let you. There are people who just now put the radio on and they're hearing you say you bought a man another pair of shorts because they were too short with no background. Do you understand what people are thinking right now. Well she's not kidding. Does pay for a golf course was at a golf course of very nice golf course that i belong to at the time and they have rules. You have to wear a collared shirt and and during the summer you can wear shorts. Obviously but they have to be bermuda shorts which are not coaching shorts or short shorts for men. Right this man let you so. The golf pro looked at your friends shorts and dress code at him and decided he couldn't play in those and told you that you had to tell your guests that his little pants were too short correct and then you bought him a pair of shorts and he let you. Here's the deal is either. I bought them or he would have to leave. And that would have made me feel terrible so buying his own shorts was my point. Is if this word. Max max would not allow you to pay for his shorts. Would you max he would. He would feel terrible about showing up in his booty. Shorts even feel awful then he would insist on paying for his own shorts. I wasn't going to get into. This guy was not making a lot of money right. I mean i was paying for the round golf I was not going to get into thing right there in front and there are other people in the pro shop watching all of this. Go down you know there are guys that have nothing else to do all day but to sit in the pro shop and watch what's going on. It's not a criticism of how you handled it this criticism of how he handled it. You know when his defense he didn't know what to do. I don't think he had sixty dollars on them. And i don't even remember. It's been a while you may not even use cash in in that club. Yeah everything had to be charged to your account and you hurt feelings. How wait what did i break and top was like. He wouldn't bunk with me but he buys this other pairs sorts. You feeling for people. That are just tuning. In for the first time that i won't be tied. I made bunk with some other guy. And i'm buying men who are wearing short shorts new pants. I'm getting true but it's true. I like people to know that. You know i i have a wife. There's some context. Yeah this is the same Golf course where the man had the butterfly. It's his ear to suck the sucked dugout with a straw cloth. It's a great. It's one of the great golf clubs in the country. You probably based on those two stories the most helpful member of thick of club they've ever had you know what i was. Actually i was the only person that was ever in broadcasting or show business admitted there well. They didn't after hearing this story. Reason why you know what though no regrets because they admit it you even though. You're clearly a carney. In their opinion and yet who was there to suck a bug adv man's ear. I was you who was there to buy another man a pair of shorts when his pants were too short. Right here right. There won't with todd right over there. I mean i'm just uncomfortable saying good night. Todd what if he said it first. That'd be even worse. I'd have to respond just so horrible new listener new listener guy in the f. One fifty just. Please stay with me a little bit longer you like. I'm not what you think i. Hey if we hop bunk. Would you tell me a bedtime story. no. I'm not going to be okay if you don't say goodnight. I or he doesn't say goodnight. I you both are gonna lie there in a tense miserable silence. And that's no way to live. I say see in the morning but good night and you know. Here's here's the bottom line is. I could never hot funk with bob and i will step up and this is side time. He'll be over there. Sign and i will be able to. I know well. I have to sleep machines going so we're not. Yeah but i still over there. The way were using the word hot fun. You'll hear him talk texting me sherry up. I don't care. I don't care. How the budget is you. Tell turkey bunker with john. I will agree with you. That would be me. Do filthy bash. Radio bob and sheri sharable taste of this. Show the fun size. Podcast drops every thursday. On the three bob and sheri all right. So there's a plane. This is a true story. That's just happened by the way says an actual news story. There's a plane it takes off in london. It's flying to florence italy Here's what the here's how. The newspaper reported it passengers onboard. The london flight to flori- alerted the pilot when they saw a section of the plane come loose shortly after takeoff They saw a piece of the wing dangling in the air. The aircraft was diverted back to city airport and landed with a badly burned. Section of the wing only just attacked only just attached Daily telegraph journalist co morton. Who was on board said. The bang made people jump and was alarming. Then we sat there thinking. This isn't right surely does the pilot. No we didn't appear to be crashing. But they could look out the window and see the wing dangling off the airplane and that's when they alerted the pilot. Okay now you guys are the passengers. What does alerting the pilot sound like when you look out the window and the plane. The plane's wing is burning and dangling from the fuselage screaming. Yeah yeah i'll bet. The language was rather colorful. I would ding the bell and wait for the flights and come. Oh yeah yeah no thank you. I'm very comfortable. I don't need a blanket. I just thought. I'd mention that the wing has snapped into in his on fire dangling. Here's where here's what. I would do miss over here please right now now. I'm serious. that's what i would say. Because i'm not going up banging on the pilots Door th. That's going to cause more problems. I understood right away now because when you're on a plane there's a better than fifty fifty chance that i'm in the seat next to you and you always have the wing the wing the window seat. So you're going to see the wing breakoff dangle flaming from the fuselage before anybody does because of course. You're white knuckling it as you psychically fly the plane with the pilot exactly. So you're bob is always on point. You can relax when you fly on a plane with bob macey. He's got he's covered as you're yelling for the flight attendant to report the dangling fuselage you know that i'm taking a picture of it because if we survive it what a tweet. Yeah and what a lawsuit well see. That's what i'm standing up. I'm you know what should i do. You're you're in the middle seat you get over the the the big guy next to you and go get them now. I just. I just start shouting. Could you maintain any composure. Dignity if you looked out the window and the plane is the wing is dangling off the plane a little. You think you could max a little. I don't think so. I think i i think i'd be going the wings. Carry off the plane. I don't know if that's helpful. Given the situation i think that i would i would be spicing it up a little bit with language. Holy bleep the bleeping. Wang is coming off the bleeping pliers. Going to be a riot. People are going to start trying to get off the plane in the air. Bob you just look out the window and the bleeping wing is coming off the plane. I don't think anything. I don't think i'm going to be tapping my seeking a myth. Could you not what. I said i stand up. Get her attention or his attention. Get him right over there. And they're not going to ignore somebody who's who's standing up in midflight. They're gonna come right over. You're going to try to keep the other passengers calm by yelling the wings coming off the plane they don't call me the wing man for nothing. All five favorite journalists or man ladies and gentlemen when you fly air. Bob the journalist. I love british people so much. The journalists comb morton said. There was a tense few minutes while we circled and wait for an announcement. It was a relief to get back on the ground. City jet said after a two hour delay passengers were put on another flight. Spokeswoman for the airlines says the operating mechanism on the wing became partially detached. Max what does that mean in regular english. The operating mechanism on the wing became partially detached. Grouping can if i'm getting on another plane it's air vatican. I'm you know after that that was. That was my next question. You're the wing man the wings coming off the plane. Emergency landing back on the flight because the likelihood of anything happening twice is very very low. It's very low. The idea of a wing coming off of the plane. I look for that. That's one of the resilience. For the. I know i know that's why i say ladies and gentlemen if you ever find yourself boarding a flight with bob lacey go ahead and enjoy sky mall in a nap because he will remain awake alert. Enhance every second of that flake. Points up on point what i look out there and you see those words to say no step to get you a badge that says wing van damme.

Which is sort of this iconic little divy lunch place. They sell hot dogs and soft. Serve ice cream right. I mean there's no liquor licence. They're not open past three or four o'clock in the afternoon it's for sale. And so i said you know guys. We should really think about buying this restaurant running together. Bob bob comes from a restaurant families a little bit about it. And i think you know based on how to take us through the bankruptcy. I think we should do it. You know it would be such a fun project and then and then top was like. Yeah but mean. Max will have to do all the work which is true but why why did he go to the negative right away. Time it'd be. It'd be lamar maxima in the back. Doing the fries the burger you. Would you would be working the cash register. So you're not gonna beginning greasy and sweaty. You're gonna luck out. You're going to work the cash register. 'cause bob will only trust you with the money if it's not himself and then bob's going to be out fraud 'cause vence china wanna be. Yeah but here's the thing as we all know. Bob doesn't wanna make a lot of new friends and so we're gonna have a problem when people are coming through the door pop where wanna sit and knows it. That's not true. I think i am a good maitre. D i have a really snappy looking blue blazer right and i could just picture myself would like an open collared cotton button-down college shirt. And i wouldn't spend a lot of time talking to them. But i know how to put them in the right seats and they. We need to move these people quickly. We can't be socializing. We gotta turn these staples over that is white todd. I am the matrix. Because i'm not only that not only that when i'm not seeing them. Okay what. I'm not seeing them. I'll be checking the men's room in the ladies room to make sure that it's very sanitary so we don't get any bed you know and all he can alert alert. Whoever cleans the bathrooms that they need to be Touched up todd. Yeah hand up over his head snapping. He's the first time the first time he goes to sit somebody at a table and they requested a booth or boy. You know how. Well it's a ness listen. It's a necessary position because how many times have you been into a soft serve ice cream hotdog place where there wasn't a maitre d' right so we have to have me up front the face. The face of the restaurants Y'all and that's and that's what. I'll be called into kitchen the talking and that's how that's going to be good because if we're serving soft serve ice cream that machine's gonna be broken at least twice a day so the face is going to have to explain to the customers at the surf machines broke. He's gonna throw max and myself and lamar under the bus because one of screwed it up. He thinks we're calling him the face behind his back. Were calling him. Which face i guys. Seriously with lamar's brilliant business experience running a video store and bob's family restaurant background. How could we lose. We both went bankrupt. Are you kidding. We know the roads. Bob we know the real the ropes. We know the to avoid. We know one thing for sure. And we're not gonna let bob or lamar name the restaurant because that's not gonna work out well for either one of us least old time hot dog by. Hi how are you. I know the little ones wanted to have some of the soft serve but The guys you know back there Let's it's hard to get good help and just it doesn't work right now. Implementary dixie cup of sauerkraut kiddos exactly from lacey's old fashioned source erred. By by the highway. I go see how it could miss. I don't feel any less pessimistic about it than i do anything else. We're doing so right about that. Ask right about people's movie critic before we let you go. Big valentine's day plans for mrs people's movie critics. Yes yes i'm keeping it keeping them loki. I can't say it on the air. But yeah you know i got plans you. You're so romantic. You are the while. You're not the duke. You're more like dukes mcmahon except i guess you can't send those pro flowers to her workplace which was one of the things you did every year. She's not she going into work or she working from home now. She's working from home in the real estate from home. Yeah it's not quite delivery by me. It's bob sherry that with the free bob and sheri. No it's interesting the ways that And i are the same and the ways that were different like in some ways were profoundly different people and in other ways were so similar and i find that the ways in which were similar if we are not careful. We are such a force of obnoxious horrible. Needs to be reckoned with. No we couldn't be Because there are like if you if you poke one of us with a stick both of us we get our hackles up. We come out. His net hewlett angry. Badgers right Week it there are things that neither one of us liked to do so. It's not like our work. Styles and preferences preferences complement each other things. Both of us hate to do so much that we will both avoid it at all costs if necessary and there's something that we have in our characters that's very similar that has caused us Aggravation not grief over the years but aggravated and that's our inability to say no to people because we're pleasers. You know we wanted knees right. So imagine my delight and stumbling across this little article about the times in your life that you absolutely should say no and the reason that we don't say no is because we're afraid of disappointing. Other people were of threatening our relationship with other people. So when someone comes to you. Bob and they really want something from you. They want you to give them something or do something for them. Do something with them. You're so afraid of disappointing them and making them unhappy with you. That you say yes but then you resent the holy hell out of whatever you agree to you. Resent it and it gets worse and worse and worse you're right. So here are five. Instances in life. Were you absolutely should say no. Okay like for example. It's been a day and you need some head time. You just need some time in your own head and you need to get away from people you need not to be making small talk you need to disengage and people are like no come on. Just come out for drinks. Come on tax -actly exactly say no Saying no because you're not doing anybody any favors by going and being a big old. Be the happened to me. The other day we mary and i with another couple we wanted to be alone. We walked into a restaurant. We'd love these folks all. Please sit down where we don't want to interrupt you know you're not. Please sit down and have a drink all of a sudden. I've had two martinis and i'm done for the night. Yeah i'm done for the night would have been better to say no to say no. Yeah i love those folks. this is this next one. I'm trying to be better about this. If you feel physically exhausted say no Don't go to don't go out. Don't go to dinner. don't go to the movie. Don't go for the walk. Just say no. Because you're gonna feel terrible and plus you're going to be a pill to be with right. Here's another one that i struggle with and i'm trying to be better at your so maybe not right by. Maybe you're just the pill you're not a pill a little the other day i did call you the pill without the chill pill there you go. That's wonderful you know when you're feeling just kind of overwhelmed over stimulating. Can't hear yourself think. Say to the people but by people. I'm going to go and be alone in my own little cave space but no don't follow. Stop coming after me some work and suppose you're at work and you do not have come. You do not have the kind of power at work that you can do something like that. Go to the bathroom and sit in the store for a few minutes but not too long because then quite frankly people will talk about you. If you've been listening to this show you've heard don't make your stance too wide when you go in this road as been a bad week. Just because it's friday night doesn't mean you need to go out and tear it up. Tgif you need to take a night off taconite on when people go bob. It's friday night. You know fun you only live once. You know you don't have to do that. And here's one that i think is the most controversial. You're absolutely not in the mood. You're tired ticked off. You just the the the nerves on the ends of your skin or irritated and say no now. I know that many experts Say that even if you're not in the mood you should say yes to your partner because you may find that you get in the mood or that you may find that Having that moment or that few moments of physical intimacy with your partner is a good reset for everybody but this this thing these researchers say sometimes you're better off saying no. Yeah because you're so not in the mood and you're so irritable and at the end of it you're only going to be more ticked off unless your husband really really is in dire need of affection. Then you should say yes even though spent long day for you because you should. That one's the tricky one. Because sometimes your tired but then you kind of get in the mood. Yeah right you know that day. I'm talking about where you're so tired and so irritable that your skinner's and somebody touching you make sure enraged so the bottom line with all these things is don't over commit because when you overcommit an turns out well don't be peer pressure right. You know what i've also noticed. You started talking about this. How much you and. I are alike except in certain things and i thought boy that is really true that so great because that gives you sherry a chance to strive to strive for something new and different. Oh yeah reach for the stars exactly because we're not exactly alike now. You were aimed exactly exactly alike. I think done yeah you you. Life is about the journey. Yeah that's exactly right. You're headed toward being an upper tight. Red pants and loving winged is getting it kidding. Oh good there's more to learn. That is the best. Bob and sheri get baden.

It was buzzfeed's very extensive List of what women girls women say versus what we actually mean. and The female code. But none of this is like i said none of it's new but it's the way they did it like for example when a woman says do i look okay. What does that mean. You know what it means. Joy looker it.

This is how long it takes a person to fall in love based on the zodiac sign. And i know you're thinking what a load of horse hockey this is. You don't know until you hear. You may agree bob bet on when i get virgo about how long it takes a virgo to fall in love. So we'll start with capricorn and it says here that the capricorn. I'm a capricorn. So you tell me if you think this is true. Why don't we start with virgo and then just close with virgo. Can we do something a little different today. We'll do that for tomorrow's goofy astrology. Do it'll be on offer. Go tomorrow so tell you this. I don't know that i do. It says here that out of all zodiac signs the capricorn is the hardest to read for one. They're super serious about their goals. And their career does tend to be their number one priority. I can't argue with that. I wouldn't say it's number one priority but it is right behind My family In relationships categories not exactly the most romantic or affectionate and not the best with words. Capra corn's rarely ever express their emotions. And leaves you wondering how you really how they really feel about you. What do you think about that. I mean i guess it's true. I guess there's a lot of truth to that camcorders if you're a capricorn me. We take love seriously but we don't fall in love very easily because we're naturally reserved but once you catch us we stick around and we show our love through acts of service. That is absolutely true. That is yeah that is you. Yeah but by the way. I hate that expression the love language i just. I know you do point and soon as i hear well. That's that's bob's love language. Mary uses it all the time. Why do you hate it. No just just sounds like one of those squirrelly books. We used to have to interview people with john gray. Yeah enter for myers. Women are from veto. let's move onto sagittarius. Sagittarians are also pretty hard. To figure out for ruin their super social and really friendly to everyone so that makes you unsure if they have special feelings for you because you know they're that mice to everybody with a sagittarius. They see romance as an adventure and in relationships totally honest but they're not very demonstrative. They're not big on gifts or flowers. Which if you're dating a sagittarius would make you think. Well they don't really care about you but that's just that's just not fair love language to use your most hated expression such a need to give them a card. You need to give them a card. That says i like you. Do you like me check. Yes check no sagittarians. Love their freedom so they never feel pressured to find a relationship with your relationship with the sagittarius. It's because y'all stumbled across each other because sagittarius did not go looking for you that brings us to the scorpio. Which is max. So let's see max if you agree though. The scorpio of course is the sexiest sign. The most passionate intense sign in the zodiac. And once you catch a scorpio's attention they will pull out all the stops to capture you but they are not open books there notoriously mysterious and even if you think things are going well in the relationship you might not ever really know for sure because scorpio's tend to keep those kinds of thoughts to themselves and it takes time for scorpio's to fall in love scorpio's need to make absolutely sure that you are someone worthy of being led into their inner world and only after you've gained their trust. Will they fall in love with you. So so i'm trying to figure out whether they're worthy to so it's not the other way around okay. I never they always say that. It's mysterious and i feel like i'm mysterious i. I think you're very private interpret as mysterious. Some sort of brooding loner no. You're not a brooding loner. You're not brooding or a loner. But you are a private person and you guard your privacy and there's nothing wrong with that. I mean even though we live in a time in america where people's grandmothers our modeling thong bikinis on instagram. It's okay to be a person who keeps their private. Yeah by the way. Did you see the Picture that elizabeth hurley posted that her mother took of her and i surely. Did you hear what morgan said about that. The great bloviating. Knock it off your thirsty empathetic. Oh my god peers. Talk stop it. Let's jump to the aquarius dating an aquarius wonderful and confusing. They tend to get along with everyone but they're also very unpredictable and can be a little bit cold. They have no problem sharing their opinions with others but expressing feelings. Isn't something really like to do. My husband's marius and so far dead. On in fact listen to this. You may be committed to each other and the aquarium will still say things. Like i think if i fell in love it would feel like this which makes you wonder liquidity spam. My husband said to me the other day. He's like yeah. I mean there's a lot of pain in life. I found most of it involves marriage. What are you doing saying words like. That didn't take it back. So of course i opt his life insurance by just a tick possible back with more of the zodiac signs. How long it takes to fall in love based on astrology. Little science free. It's bob and sheri used the talk back to back. Teach on the free aubin sherry app and leave us a message. How long it takes a person to fall in love based on their astrological sign. And we're at geminis now geminis the fun loving sign. You know gem nizer. They're really intellectual and they love to have a good time. They need and crave stimulation and want someone or something stops being fascinating. A gemini moves on now a gemini. is slow to fall in love because a gemini has to be with you for a really long time to figure out that you are not going to bore them to tears. Wow that sounds like a heavy lift. You have to pay attention to a gemini because a gemini does not want to be ignored. And you better be good at communicating. Because if there's something you need to say you get it out your mouth because geminis loved talk things out now. We are at virgo here. We go if you're looking for long-term relationship material look no further than a virgo your yoga. Your virgos are an organized immature and they're devoted and loyal an excellent communicators but dating a virgo can be a slow process. It can take months before you get a hint of their true feelings because virgos are very very careful and virgo in. Love is not obvious to the naked eye because they don't have big dramatic displays of affection. Like a leo or gemini. Burgos like stability and they like consistency. And if you are a wild nutcase you may not make with because virgos do not like chaos and virgos tend to over think everything they hyper analyze every detail of the relationship but once they fall in love. Your virgo isn't excellent partner. Virgos love acts of service. It's their love language. Which i don't have to do anymore service for language. Listen listen to the sentence and you tell me this isn't bob. Quote virgo is always trying to find ways to fix up your life help you. He'll take care of you and be of service for you make you laugh. Burgos want to take care of you and show you a good time. I mean part of that is me. Part of that is me and i do. What burqas love getting credit for things and being told cleaning. Yes they do. Yes they should because they do so much for so many taurus How does the tar spiel about you on the one hand. The ball is very attentive. And they're consistent and they're thoughtful and all of that on the other hand you've been seeing each other for a while and taurus has not said a single word about how they feel feel about you. Taurus partners can be confusing because they need somebody they can trust and that takes a long time to establish taurus People won't be court it. They want you to make the effort to win their heart. But you better have a strong physical attraction because tourists is not for unless unless there's a big big attraction there tourists takes a long time. Their league burgo. They take a long time to fall in love with you but once you get your torres they are they are like the virgo they are committed and they are devoted as long as you show them that. You're serious and you value them. They're committed devoted until the aren't well. I mean isn't but isn't that. Always the wettest. I guess that's always the way right Now we go to cancers. That's tied doesn't take much to fall for the cancer because they are loving kind nurturing romo romantic loyal and they managed to somehow get into tune with exactly what your heart wants and they always make sure you know how much you mean to them. Once a tourist gives you his or her heart a cancer rather and loves you. They are all about making you happy and there is nothing more joyful than a cancer in love. They're all right with casual relationships. They're not gonna turn a casual relationship or a bootie call situation down but your taurus loves to be in love or your cancer. I'm sorry todd. I keep saying tourist your. That's okay okay. Good news for you. So far right. We're out of time and we still have a couple more zodiac signs. Just do it real quick to do it. Real quick well. The aries aries is hot and heavy and love and they They jump headfirst. Chances are though you can be loved bombed by areas because they fall out of love just as fast as they fall in. So think about that. Really carefully. Right and pisces There's one thing that you need to know about a pisces. They love love. Love love love courtship and seduction. They are sensitive and kind and they really want you to make some effort. We're talking flowers. Love notes sweet kisses on the back of the neck all of it. It'll take a while for pisces to get there. But you get that pisces in. It's like having todd once you get one of those people and they love you. They love you. It's bob and sheri. The affair. Cast a bob and sheri odd cast.

And anybody that wouldn't cover for you Oh not your friend number two when you're looking for a different job obviously keep your mouth shut. Don't tell anyone no one is a matter of fact. Don't even tell your friends. Just go ahead until you get that job. You work at that job that you have like. You're going to be there the rest of your life number three when they ask how they look like before a big meeting unless there's some big stain or something on their On their shirt always say you look fantastic. You're gonna you're going to him. Ever had a boss asked me how they look. I haven't either but we're not in a traditional sort of deal you know. It's not like we're going on the road and make a presentation or something abia number four when they tell a lame joke. I hate this i hate and i can do who who does a better f- than me. Oh you're the man thank you ma'am thank you. Thank you sherry. You could earn a living just doing i. Just i hate it when when a when a boss makes me go through a joke that i already know or that. It's linked well first of all. Who tells jokes anymore right. Not that many people although i love if a joke is well told. I haven't heard of before. I love a good joke i do. When was the last time that happened. People don't tell people don't tell me jokes But we had a really funny thing that happened last night at dinner we were talking about. We were watching the tv show about airline pilots having ufo sightings saw and kevin said to me. Well you ever known personally a pilot that seem one. What about bill lives across the street.

But if you don't want to talk about it's perfectly fine. If you just kind of tell a white lie and i agree. Here's another reason You can tell a lie like when the bosses a scumbag like we had about How many years ago while many years ago and the guy is ruining the company and making your life miserable when he says.

I think it's fine to Hate to say it but you know just sabotage a little bit. Here's the here's the sad truth that everybody everybody knows. Just 'cause somebody's the boss don't mean they they should be the boss. Sometimes people just get to be the boss because we were running out of bodies and they were next in line. The worst boss have is somebody who knows he really doesn't have the bosses ability. Somebody the peter principle think somebody that has met his match as far as what he can do. Those are. he's paranoid all the time. Those are people who managed by punishment and the they don't inspire they punish and they hire people who were not right for the jobs because they don't want anybody smarter than there well and also because they're not really may be qualified to be making hiring. Decisions is part of the peter principle. Yeah you know. I read an interesting thing about work on in the new york.

It's based on your job performance at all but on your personality really. Yeah so much the same for men now not at all completely different world so so like a job review will include will people perceive you as strident bitchy difficult Those those three characteristics Flip them and they become leadership characteristics. Somebody who's determined yeah. Heart is nails. Yeah what's the company first yup yup which the stockholders assertive. You're exactly right. yes so it. Was this really interesting thing about the way that bosses handle employees based on their gender and the upshot of the article was and it was so interesting was heads up. Ladies your ain't gonna change it so what you need to do is find a way to deal with criticism. That is personal. Because it's one thing for me to say to you. Your performance at the job is not what it needs to be. It's another thing for me to say you know what you're an unpleasant person like. Wow how'd you get. How'd you get in the room with those kony's how exhausting for a woman though to have to tar enough to be successful at a job. Now you've got to figure out another side door plan.

You know how like all right. Let's go. I got in a higher power but also i believe in kidde fire extinguishers. Well you know. I was thinking you know another thing i do when. I'm not performing. I trained police dogs. I've done police. Canine work and got in and got felons. And one of the things you learned to do. Is you slow time down. Like people in the military when you're into when you're in the heat of the moment the heat of the battle you've gotta slow everything down and really think about it. Just we just ran the clip while you were talking with your hair on fire for god. It's a it's a big flavors ball on your head. Yeah we could change the name of the band right impressed that like you heard. I believe you know you heard. God's voicing hey you're on fire i gotcha keep going.

He's got that thing how much time you think he's doing. I don't have a siamese. Oh i thought you might like onstage. Like fucking probably start started five minutes. i mean. He's clearly in the system they're like. Hey jeff they know him but this isn't a violent crime. I think right with good behavior. Maybe we'll see him in like two three years. Maybe maybe less maybe less. I hope you have a short bed but very funny. Jeffrey very funny so much so much. Oh yeah when g. Yeah what's going on with that. You pull up. jeez instagram. So what used to happen is i would. I didn't i would just go there and read stuff. Sometimes you know the comments and it'd be really funny. Every once in a while. I would post. I would comment and what i noticed is that my comment could get liked the bunch but khan and then it would be like one hundred comments underneath it but if you went to read them they would all be gone like they had this kind of like. I don't know put some type of shadow bam now. My comment appears or i could see it. No likes no nothing so now is completely while being restricted. Yeah so if you hit you hit that latest one there. I wonder if you can even see that. it's there. Maybe you can't does now. The way it works is only. It's only visible okay. Yeah so so mine's not even there anymore. That is hilarious. And that also means that they upped at one like i mean used to leave us to be visible and and you could see the lights and now it's but they haven't they didn't block me which is like you could block them. They don't want to hurt your feelings while but what. They didn't realize that this is really upset. Me so what are we gonna do. Well we're not gonna do anything. But i don't like this. Gee i don't like that. Everyone's having fun without me. And i think you should unrestricted buttons from commenting on your account. And i sure hope that the people who listen to this and comment don't encourage you to unrestricted me. That's it that's all i wanted to say. I just want to be part of the fun. I want to have a good time again man. Well this feels like it's leading to the most fun we've ever you're gonna find out gee defined you got. I got friends and some high places. How about that shit cannot believe that he fucking restricted me. Do you think he even knows what's going on. I think he hired people to find out what's going on. You think he ever looked at his competent. He's like what the fuck. Because like i mean what's like what's happened is for years. You know that he's been confused him and his whole team or just like what are all these sentences that don't make sense to us. Yeah why none of this makes any sense. And for the first time i think like a month ago because i think i was telling a friend about this like look man. We've never asked people to do this. But let me show you. Geez account and i would scroll and this is the first time we're on the second scroll i found something that wasn't like a y made reference. Yeah i was just like a oh all right. Genuine comments are starting to bleed through now. He must be like coming up getting onto it. Yeah i think it's it's finally come to a point where he was like. I need to do something. Maybe he restricted things. Like where are the bodies and stuff like that like those phrases. There's definitely words that he is now banned. I'll tell you what g got. You might camera through baggage. So yeah no. That's great. that's actually one of these comments right here. Really camera through the fence garth dude. The comments are the funniest fucking thing i've ever seen in my life. Sometimes when i just need a laugh. I just go here to read. I mean look at these. It's like i got a dui baby sokha souffle. Was that one. Say that just says. I think that's probably just but but i mean like any madam coming up in may garth. What did you do to christina whereas my family garth. That's where it spits. What did you. Why did you hurt christina. Don't be skinned stingy home here now. What you do christine. Yeah i mean it's just like it's always it's like page after you scroll every single thing it's really the it's the most wholesome fun i've ever had on social media just knowing that this exists. Wholesome is the only way to describe. It is wholesome. It's so fun. It's so sweet. Garth show me that you like me restrict my account. Don't be stingy. Come on man. What are the chances they restrict me. I mean if we get a campaign going what what hashtag. You want justice for tom. Justice for tom. Good unbanned restrict. Tom unrestricted tom on restrict. Tom's a good one on restrict t. There you go leave t alone. That might be my favorite one so far Got him it. I cannot believe you did that g well hopefully hopefully he gets. He's going to get the message. Hopefully the team on me without a doubt yeah. Yeah and i'm not writing like curse words or anything on his page. Yeah i wonder how they connected the dots. Because i mean like they connected him but i mean we're able to see all these like none of these you like accounts are what's the previous posts say like the one before this. What's that one that what's that one. That's when he got his kennedy center. Honor right you know. Whistle banana split. Yup james taylor though gave him the hearts yup. I'm a make you cry underneath it. Everything else for three days my baby you bet them coming up in may show me where it spits. What that's money that. I know that's meant to be said there's ones that you're just like. Oh that's just where you're like that's a reference to. Yeah that's what just like. Somebody could just write different and then we know what that means. I feel like this guy doesn't get as much love as he should. The three six five guy you know we're card played hard. Yeah so he's getting lots of representation in the comments. He sure is yeah. She's america right. That's right garth unrestricted me. Leave t alone so hold on so run me through. Run me through when you found out where the the thought i popped in your head. You're like some fishy so it was months ago where i wrote something. I saw that it was like the bunch. And i saw that there were like one hundred comets underneath it and i went to see what they were they. People were underneath it. And every time you hit comment It would show less comments and then you could read none of them. So i was like oh none of the comments underneath. My comment are visible. So you couldn't read any of the comments that responded to you. They responded to my comment right. I could read everything else does not ones that we're talking to you right. Yeah and i was like oh but also it was still liked like you know nine hundred times or something. I didn't post again for like on his thing for like two months and the same thing happened again. I wrote the comment. it was like two bunch. There were comets but when you went to read them nothing so i was like i would some type of like some level of restriction and then the last one that i noticed was the one on the on the latest post where i wrote something and then i went back to see it and there were zero like zero activity. I was like oh. They restricted me. So you started out probably confusion. You were there for a few seconds. Yeah and then. How quickly did you go to an. I don't know if this is. Did you go to anger or happiness. When you found out your ear restricted. No i was depressed. I was so sad. I was sad. So how quickly from confused sad did you go. It took me. It took me a moment. I mean at first. I was like wait. What like nobody. And then i was like. Oh it's not no one seeing this. I'm not allowed to participate anymore. And and then. I got bummed out. How dare they take away your fun. It's the most fun i've ever had. And it's wholesome like it's hurting. No one does not not hurt them. He. he's not aware of come on. What is this hurting his stadium sales hoops. How much money do you think. He's put into trying to clean up his instagram account. I don't know there's no way that number zero. I don't think he's aware of what's being spent. I think the team is just like we gotta do something about this. Do think the team scramble whereas other what other social media does you have. Well facebook. i think he's got to be big on facebook right. I mean that's that's that seems like a real that's the right place for garth. That's where all the garth fans are.

We did a bunch of dates here. You took me to england which was wild. That was good. It's kind of i. I keep thinking about how the longer that i do. Stand up and just work in this business. The more you go like holy shit when somebody has longevity they stay you know doing it and putting it out like d. Do you feel like 'cause you have been on top of stuff for so long like is it. Just that you put in the work. Is that basically as simple as it is. You got to put in the work. Excuse me no matter what you do. You gotta put in the work. Yeah that's always you know you know that of course because that goes without saying but then my I wanna call him my fan base. I say the people that come and see me yeah. They're very loyal to me then. I'm very loyal to them. You know and everyone's always come in especially in the world we live in now. Everyone's like you're going to be able to still do this type of comedy you do because you know the world we live in or are you gonna chant like doing it thirty two years. I can't fucking change now now and the people that are coming to see me coming to see me do just add. Yeah i mean the cancel. People were never gonna come. See you or i write. They weren't they didn't give a shit about us. All they wanna do is cancel senator. There they were never going to buy a ticket so we're not losing a ticket to them and you see. They couldn't cancel you if they wanted to. I'm sure they could try. But they'd have to fabricate something and really. Yeah but also the people that come to see you would be like. I'm still going to see him. Yeah and i talk about it at the shows now. So it's nice. Yeah i tell them. You know if i change I'm gonna lose you. And i'm not going to gain new people right. I'm just gonna really lose my my audience. Because i got scared of this then gooch because it's the invisible bully. Yeah you do you feel that thing. Though of like i've been it's been going so well for so long. Does that does that. Like fuck with you at some point Just keep going that. That's more the question basements. I'm kinda fucked this keep going. Yeah oh really. They want me. They still and still sold out. I'm like it's amazing. It is amazing. I just did eight shows in in irvine all weekend right you know. We added two extra shows. Yeah extra show thirds extra still going still going and it was. It was great. You know that's what my voice is a little Jen pony today. A little horse. Here's the thing. I like as thrilling as it is to do like the big big shows you know like it's obviously amazing. There's still nothing like a great club weekend. Oh yeah comedian. It's like yeah it's the best it takes you back to your roots. Yeah it makes you feel normal again but then you get a nice big paycheck at the end. You're like oh there it is. Yeah i feel normal and i feel great again and you fucking you really. Because i've seen you obviously live a bunch of times like you actually talk to people. And i've seen i've watched you build stuff on stage by like let's that's how i right. Yeah right but i mean like you'll engage people not every some people i mean figure stuff on stage but you'll do it also wild talking to people right like the material comes from those conversations. Yeah that's Last night because that's you know there's always the same way that we all do. The same shit will write it. We'll figure it out then we'll say it and then while we're saying in each night will say it's slightly different just to see if we come up with the right variation last night. I came up with something. I've been doing this. We're going on this bid for about six months seven months now and last night i said something different there. It is right there. That's the best feeling. Why didn't i think of that before. The best feeling is is like god. There's sometimes there's bits. I worked on for like a or more and i get married to saying it that way and then usually it's actually because i forgot. Yeah or i'm not paying attention in the moment and i say something different or my mind just goes this way and then you're like oh there's the answer yeah there. It is much better. they're so it's such a. It's such a unique people who don't do it. Never understand that feeling like it is euphoria. Oh yeah last night. I'm still buzzing about it now or you get one of those lines. If you figure it out on friday and saturday show people like you're in a good mood. You're like yeah. I figured out a word last night or you say it right and then you go to say it again. Then you screw it up the next time you yeah. Do you write things down. Not not not really known. I'll make a note in my phone. I have a ton of notes of unfunny things that i've written down. I've done that. The other thing. I've done is i get high and i do voice notes like i'll talk and at the time i'll be like this is some high level comedy. Shit that is gold and then the next day you're listening to like. Oh my god. I have to delete this. Make sure no one ever hears this. It's like embarrassing to myself to hear myself stone and then you know like just ramble on and on thinking that i'm coming up with some brilliant concept i wrote a joke twenty five years ago i was driving to gig and i thought it was the funniest joke ever and to this dates never even gotten a smile not even i don't even bother with it but it was. I was driving driving in the middle of nowhere. And there's a big empty field and it had assigned said lots for sale. Lots of what and that was. That was no wonder it doesn't work. It's not fucking funny. Do you remember that you used to encourage me to do this joke. That would get me into trouble. Which one latino come on. That's my favorite told. All the time i get so mad at me man. That's my favorite. I tell people that all the time they go. It's tom act like before i go. He used to have this really great joke. About latino computers there is. It was a it was a place on. I want to say it was on vine or between vine and fountain you know between fountain in like santa calm and it was called latino computers. That's what it said on a sign. So i the joke was i used to do it. Real slow income real slow. Remember that what did you do. You still do that style. Yeah i mean. I do i. You seem like more fluid here and then on stage. You go into a different tom. I'm usually. I'm usually a a step slower on state. Yeah yeah yeah it would go by the way. does it still exist. If you type it in. I was just looking for it. Doesn't come on now. Got awarded the store. I saw i saw place called latino computers and i was like. Let's do the job for you. You remember the joke. Yeah i remember the joke i saw. I i'm going to do it at your pace. I saw a store called latino computers. Latino computers is that really how you really want to sell your store like these. Computers aren't really aren't very fast. But they work really hard and then the audience would always go. Ooh and go. Hey it's better than black computers. They don't work at all and they just talk a bunch of shit see now. I took the onus off of you. Yeah hey. I didn't say that you guys not today man. Yeah there was a i. I did that joke. One night at the melrose i remember. And this latino comic fuck and fired up really start heckling me from like that booth area right then in the hallway was like. I bet you wouldn't say that shit on the whatever he thought you were white. And that's why. I was like all right man like what he was. You know i go sure. Would i would do that joke on any show at the time. I said you know if you remember back do you remember this About i think when we were doing shows in florida and when i realized you could speak spanish maybe about a year or two later. I take you on the road with me somewhere and and tom. Why don't you start doing those. Like latin shows at the communists at the factories. Don't wanna not gonna do that time. Tony would be amazing. If you didn't entire act in spanish oh right and you're like no know. I don't think that's an now. Look at you special special in spanish during spanish i know. Do you see the future like dude. I'm telling you it's a huge market for gas market. Yeah now it's and here's the thing you know how after a while it thirty two years there is a certain obvious like level of comfort. You have on stand up. I have a certain level of comfort. Doing stand up. When i do the spanish shows. It's like you're back at you like you're one boy. It's good the the level of focus. I have to have you. Yeah like to do them is like you know i mean english. I could be like now. I'll try this. And if it doesn't work i do something else but in spanish i'm like hyperfocused because you don't think in spanish exactly. Yeah yeah so. I really speak it but doesn't mean you think that's true and so you i'm just like it's good for me because it makes me like really honing on it. Yeah it's really good. I was really happy to see that. Spanish special komo i mean. I didn't watch it. Because i watch that shit but not out yet. No shot it. It was supposed to shoot last year. I thought you had when come out last year. Now now they announced it. And i was supposed to shoot it then. Cova shut everything down. What happened to kobe. i dunno. it's this thing in the air Then they moved it. They said we're gonna shoot it this year and then i was like no. We're not no. We're not gonna do this. My first spanish special on two weeks. No now i'm gonna do a hundred shows before.

A few years ago would do that. Yeah russell now's like now more frugal. Yeah yeah yeah. We'll you've you've done it all. I did it all and then cova kinda reminded me what i needed when i didn't need. Yeah and i got rid of a bunch of shit did you. Oh man was it. That kind of it was because cova defected. Everybody differently for you. It was kind of an awakening in a way. There was an awakening. It was like your monthly. Bill is so high unnecessarily. Yeah and it was. I didn't notice it. Because i was always working so it would always get paid. Yeah and then. When i wasn't i was just hemorrhaging. Money into my account was like you're going to go broke really. Yeah gotta get rid of shit. So i started getting rid of shit. Would you start selling like properties and stuff got rid. Two houses of cars watches. I heard of all kinds of shit and now doesn't it feel better. It hurts. Your ego hurts your ego more than hurts. Anything else right. There's times where. I look in my closet. Fuck i wish i still had that other. Watch all right in whatever. There's times when. I'm driving and i go. Which had my porsche right now. Well whatever yeah i mean. Don't you feel like because our. I feel more mature. Now you feel more mature but don't you also responsible like there's so we start to make money and you go well. There's things i wanted right or thing yes stuff. Sometimes you go that the The pursuit of the thing. Yes is the rye is the rush. Yeah then you have and you're like yeah. It's cool yeah. There's a lot of things i got. You know i had about three rolls royces at one like not not at one time like over the course of a few years and every time i had when i would get rid of them early because i was like i feel like a douche driving this. Yeah yeah they're really dope to have and so. I got a rolls royce. But when you're driving you go people look at you and you go. Yeah i feel like a dick. I feel like you get like being an indian guy. That's cool get more permission to have crazier shit though like yeah. I feel like if i were in a rolls royce. People be like what in the fuck like they would. Not but you would get a pass now. Because i feel like people look at bingo. Look at that entitled prick. And like no. I was poor growing up. You don't understand. Yeah but you you know you gotta look at it. You gotta ride it a certain way and i just felt too old in it. What's your what's what kind of because there is that thing about cars. Where like i feel like every time. I see a ferrari yet i feel like i'm looking at a piece of art right like i could. I could stand if you had a ferrari out there. We go and i could literally stand and look at it for forty five minutes with you just like you would look at like the mona lisa. They're fun to look at yet. But but i feel like getting in one and driving it. I would feel super self conscious anytime. I've gotten into a ferrari of hurt my bowls. So i'm like i can get it a ferrari.

Do the guy next to him. And like i gotta go. However i do want the rolls royce. Suv i'd still. Yeah i keep my eye on that for a while. i think that's a good. It's a good play for making ethan pulled up in that. Like soup lay. Eat nathan kline H three podcast guy. Right i was. He's like 'cause he's not really a car guy and he was like. Oh i got this Rolls royce. And i was like what out there and i was like. Oh yeah it was. That rolls suv. Oh i love it yeah. it's nice man. It was beautiful. Yeah i like that.

I'm never going to get one but we're not anytime soon. Sounds like it's it's it's kicking around your head. It's kicking around in my head. But i got other things i got to take care of.

You really enjoy it right now. i love it. How because you grew up. Like when i learned about this when i started hanging out with you that you were really into boxing. Do you still have love for boxing or watching it now. But you don't ever do you like to do the training like you know not sparring but like to me like you're going to do it you might as well go. Spar i mean okay. That's kind of like any anybody can go learn how to hit minutes. There's a lot of people online who have really these great mid work in pepper. Like wow. he's so good. And i'm like in the ring motherfucker. That in the work in the. That's not the right. yeah yeah when. Somebody's throwing punches at you. It's very different. A lot of these guys are holding midst. They they go over the head this way and i never had coming up. My coach would never go over. My coach goes straight for your for your head. Yeah it was like pop. Fuck okay duck. Duck more yeah you know but you know it looks good. There's this generation about optics. What do you think of the state of boxing like really interesting. My now i mean do you do you. Are you of the opinion that these celebrity fights are making a mockery of the sport. Or is it like who cares. It's still bringing attention to like to what's better and you know no it's not no it's bad it's bad because you got a lot of these kids coming in. Then we're raising a generation of trolls. Yeah we're teaching kids that if you're a troll you can get paid so you know the paul's the jake and logan paul's they're just the start of it. Yeah you know what i mean. They're they're not even like as bad as it's gonna get. Yeah like they may be ama look at now. Go look at these scumbags. But they're not even. What's there the tip of iceberg. Yeah you're going to have a whole generation of trolls underneath them. That are going to be far worse than these. You're going to be begging. For jake. And logan paulsen point. You think so. Oh yeah and you think that. do you think that. Because i actually. I watched the mayweather fight sorta. I watched it and actually thought you know i. I gave him a lot of credit for for just stepping in the ring. No no you didn't feel that at all. No really. I feel he listened. He knew even said so he knew he had no chance against floyd mayweather sure but he talked himself into it and the fact that he was able to talk himself into its shows a generation of children and kids. That if you are good enough shit talker You can make things happen and you're gonna have a lot of of shit we already have enough fulla shit people out there. How easy you think. Floyd took it on them. Afloat took a pretty easy on which i was a little disappointed with. I thought i personally thought floyd was going to chop down ladies and it's gonna kill the body all night and he was he was banging that liver and then then he because the job is you gonna bang deliver eventually. You're gonna drop your right hand to protect your liver and then you're gonna leave that chin open then you come over with a left hook. And but that's not what he would do touch him with it. He was touching on that. You didn't even think any you didn't think any of his athleticism you're like you know kids decent like oh. He's in great shape. He's a big old ohio kid. Yeah he's six foot two gets fucking jacked. Yeah you know but again if fifty professional boxers couldn't beat this guy what makes you think this kid. A horse of boxing five years ago. That's like me going. Yeah you know. What if i train hard. No i'm gonna get my ass kicked. Yeah i get my ass. Kicked by both logan and jake paul by you know what i mainly so it's a different world. They don't really understand a lot of people. Don't understand that. Boxing is not about size or look. It's about skill. yeah that's true yeah It's like the same thing with like tick talkers. I think they're going to do. Stand up that just hilarious. It's the same thing though in an remember when kids on vine. We're doing standup. Yes i remember hosting at the improv one night. And they're like and they tell you you're bringing up somebody. Yeah that's the thing to he bring him. What's what do i say you big on vine. Yeah this this kid was like.

Wayans Russell Peters Whitney Cummings Roy Junior Pete Holmes Sinbad David Spade Judd appetite. And many more. He's also the host of the now that's debatable. podcasts everybody please welcome Sidney Smith. How's it going, man? That was good I. I you sent me a quick rundown what you're. GonNa Save the Intro I read it. As in the middle, some didn't get into it but here you sound like map I've worked with some pretty cool people so. You'll think about it when you're in it. So yeah, I have to say, well, you're pretty cool yourself man I had not had the chance to see you live until i. think it was February. It was I think it was right before pandemic mania but I went to go see you're featuring four Adam Ra radio which. I I had him on my show. He was promoting his shows there. So then I went to go see him and I saw the Tony Tripoli was hosting and then I saw Sydney Smith and I was like I don't know this Guy I. Think I've seen you on social media like that. I was like Oh, this'll be cool and so I see Tony Tony is obviously very funny like He's Oh God. He's such a blast and then you came on and you blew me away I thought you were absolutely hilarious I. appreciate it man thank you. That was that was a good weekend I love working with. Tony. Adam raise. So chill to be within the Green Room initiated statements weekend as good show a lot of great line of Casey currier have put together. So that's really cool and by the way before we get into the meat of things about you, your life nominee and everything, how has it been going with pandemic quarantine and the whole environment? What how what emotions if you've been going through? How have you been coping? Are you still working in terms of stand up? Has All been going? In. Terms of standard fortunate. Once in Valley I think that I've been doing this long enough made enough connections. Pretty. Well no longer. In Valley and Mason. Context. Outside. That hasn't really stopped me from working wants to clubs had opened back up. I will in the first comics there on the very first weekend and I was working weekends after. I have no. I have no real concerns there. I've got a great show coming up. We'll talk about later but a great show coming up next weekend optima looking that because that'd be something new but. is I'm a worker. So if I do more stand up, I write scripts as well. Always trying to I bit I've been trying to put a team together to shoot scripts that I've written. I have three facebook live shows that I launched right at the beginning of the pandemic. So keep you busy every single week producing knows in tweaking and I don't have any hobbies everything I do is work and everything I do is to be great. At the end of it, I created another new live show that I was able to do attempting Improv kind of get A. candidate of free tickets force called three for three kind of a game show if you will for the comedians and got a chance to kind of work that out. So always constantly creating something, there's always something to do if you are not finding anything to do not trying hard enough. So you have to always be trying to recreate yourself because you don't know what can happen. We knew that this pandemic was going to happen but if you're someone who works. You'll find something to do and dish enough agent. I think that's so true and especially now it's something that I cling to be. At. When I started I was just getting waves of anxiety in like, oh, what's going on but then I started really pouring myself as much as I could into my work where. I have the opportunity now to be able to talk with amazing people like you and other guests online through zoom. So I started doing instead of one podcast to podcasts a week I was doing I am doing five or six, and so it's a grind but like you said, I, mean you've. You don't have anything to do. You're just you're not looking hard enough. No No. No. I was just going to say to I wanted the law you because you're not just doing a bunch of different things but I feel like you're doing a bunch of things well. I saw a couple of your of your sketches on your youtube. Fad Jesus. A lot of those. Really funny and then you're shows too. I didn't know if they were still going on I, kept him out of the Bio, but we can is a good transition into them but show and Taylor kissing tail and. The the other show that you had talked back the the talk the talk back was my very first one that was my baby. But if you're creative out sixty anybody out there if you're ever struggled with somebody that you create if you don't like it's going well, give it some time, and then you gotta you gotTa put a bullet your kids at that's what you have to do. Also It is just what it is. So Wednesday nights are GONNA turn into a new show. So I had to kill the talk back because I haven't having the numbers that it was getting I was having a great time to enjoy it for me to talk back was similar to what you do right now with your with your podcast Mita Talk to interview people that I think are interesting and that type of thing because I love to be able to do that. But it wasn't doing what I wanted to do a thirty for I don't have any hobbies. So if something's not working out, kill it and I'll create something. Also I've created a new show that I'm not ready to announce yet but that'd be going on Wednesday nights and probably about forty six weeks. So just working on that, Intel is still out there and I'm making some tweaks to that to make to improve that as well. So. Oh man stuff coming down the pipe. That's awesome. That's really cool. You. You are a creator, your Creator. That's true. I also wanted to ask a little bit about your past this nothing dark audiences just going into the past but you you're you're from Michigan from K. Pack and I I was listening to some of your stand up online and you have a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering and a Master's in business finance. So I'm wondering what happened in how did you transition into comedy? Stuff kind of went away before I ever got into comedy. I was a sales trainer Sales Madman type of thing at that when comedy. But I grew up a kid. Who enjoy the theater in singing and dancing that type of thing. Anyway. I had never really done in my entire life was than comedy. Group of Fan and about doing it. But when you're from certain areas, I know there are a lot of comics while if they're from L. A. from New York's Chicago has a great team the guy that have that in their blood they can see that they know how to get that going. We'll what you really didn't have that in in in the Metro Detroit area. So there's really no avenue is no way to figure it out how to get there. So growing up as a kid and you've as a as a young adult like I would love to do that. But I don't know how to go about it. And just happened to walk into an open MIC. Twelve Home Soviet ago that joke Kimmel actually was running at a spot called bongos. And I walked in and I came with some friends of mine we're going for drink actually and they had mike was we didn't know about an guys suck. I can do this. Went Back to follow week. They sucked just as bad as the APPS I signed up never looked back what I did learn. Is that we all suck. So. What would I didn't understand because I wasn't business yet that open mics with for open mics for there to go and for you for you to suck ass and so what I was seeing was just part of the process. But thankfully, for my ignorance about this business, it pushed me say, okay I can do this and jump in so. Nice Oh. That's really cool and then I know you started in Phoenix as you progressed, has the Phoenix seen grown and I ask his grew up here but then I lived in New York for about seven years and I moved back two years ago. So I jumped in I did stand up for a little while but I've been focusing on the podcasts especially since comedies and Kinda Coma. Right now but. It seemed like once I jumped in, it was booming a there a lot of places. There's CB live standup live house of comedy stir crazy. I, know comedy spot is done by. JP's. His name. Company clubbing. Yeah. That's right. Jim Perry his comedy club in. Gilbert. So he just so many places and then hundreds of comics it seems like. I tell these kids and I use that term loosely by. The so lazy sometimes and I think you're lazy because you have so many different opportunities that were not here when we started back, then you have bongos. Let you go to bed was Wednesday nights on that was back when Howard Hughes at not even opened up his first club yet he was still trying to. Get a show here one night show. They're still struggling to get that going opposite only had the tempe. Improv was the only real major club that was here. The commie spot but that was never placed that we're going to go. Perform. So we really have anything Cup other comics head. A couple of Nice Mike's one that was over at a spot called the ice house where there was literally a your any bar where there is a ice rink on the other side of the glass and so you stand up there and you would tell jokes and hit the boards. But it was but A. Place though that you really had grind because there were a lot of us. I think we were closer than to because they were not as many comics but we always thought the same faces wherever Mike you went to, and we were just out really trying to get it in but. Now. There's so many different clubs different. Rooms. Now when you know when we're normal. That I. Don't know why a lot of these guys and girls don't go out twice a night if they can. The doesn't make sense to be many more opportunities. So the group is seen has really grown I don't think any funnier. But. His is grown in terms of clubs and his grown in terms of the amount of comics every. Yeah Yeah. Yeah, that's right. I was about to ask but it seems like that's not the case of are there. So many comics now that it's hard to get a spot if you end up going to a Mike. For me so Now now for me and I'm not saying that any type of Ego I've saying that I put my time in I'm recognizing what I can do, and if I walk in a room people normally happy that had me do Mike if you know if I want to do that might but. If I want to do like I. Normally do do what every other comic does. Hey you have time. Can I get some time? So and so forth now outrage out ahead of time I don't walk in ever expecting just jump on the stage. What have been as you've grown, you've done this what twelve years now almost almost. Goes as well thou- that that is a long time what have been the biggest challenges for you as you've been going into stand up. Writing, or finding your voice or crowd work or no, or you just got it. All of it I am good at all of it so. I'm crowd work is natural for me probably because the growth with family did I grew up and you have to be quick, you have to be quick feet. Fast got to be quick with it. Because we picked these in my family and being from the Metro Detroit area. people just fuck with you. So you have to be ready to. Stand your ground in terms a righty. A I think we should get to structure learning to structure of how to joke together And how you in how in what type of story you WanNa tell I guess it'd be finding your voice. All I come through time. If you're putting the working, I think the hardest part about this business understand that it is a business understand that you don't have any real friends in his business Going to post something on facebook the other day. Or a couple of weeks ago, but I decided not to but the pair phrase my own fault. You can Kinda tell your success but how many dead bodies? Laying on the road that you travel. A dead bodies I mean people were friends who tried to stab unit back. You had to leave the Behi- people who are trying to stress just trying to hang on because you were having success they weren't having adopted could hang on it and you figure that out. So I feel like the more that you have lane at your views you as you travel down this road, the more success you're having also. The fewer fewer comics. You'd have liking your post and things like that as well as always a great indicator as well because we're so competitive were so able There's so many people who would not work as hard as you feel like they deserve the same accolades and estate opportunities that year getting and you start to see those those people tend to show themselves. So that's always a great thing to see again I judge my success partly by some of that but that's one of the things you have to learn that this. Is Such a fucking businessmen? There are no there's very few real friends that whole thing that Adam Sandler has gone with his crew Chris Rock Rob Schneider that whole crew does that crew he keeps working might as Chris Rock without crews that he keeps around him keeps working that is so rare is so hard to find. It takes you by finally have filed a solid crew for the most far buck laude bodies to be left behind, and this is such a fucking business and people will snake you from all different directions. Man Damn well, somber note I also like how you're keeping the vibe alive and interesting for our audience to shoot and your shows in the back of the head. Dead bodies hide you. But I also did want to say I feel like one of the reasons for your success beyond. Beyond, the grind and beyond continuing to improve and everything is I feel like you do look at this like a business you you practice what you preach and it just seems like you have such a well put together website you've got social you've got. It seems like good connections and and You're very professional which allows you to get booked at multiple places and I also think that you do a really good job of I. Mean I, read the names on there and I just I had a little tingle in my spine I almost fan girl Dover just reading the names, but it seems like you also you. Talked about being in the Green Room With Adam Ray and I saw another post where you talked about you got not bumped but you got pushed back for a show. Yeah, and it was a star studded cast of Comedians and you got to hang out with them in the green. Room for a while picking pick your but my head is swept from from that night. Yeah. Nice Nice Sarah Silverman and Whitney Cummings on the other side. Sarah's on this side Whitney's decide. This is from a different time I saw waiting but this is from that that moment you're talking about an agree room at the comedy store in La and that's with Sarah. By here in the Middle S A pick with share Whitney and Joey Coco Diaz. In s hanging out with them. brand cal was in that in that room mates, Adam Corolla and Oswalt they were like so many people by show but but yeah, I'm sorry to interrupt you there was. No not at all I just this wasn't even a question more compliment but I feel like what you've done is you've been able to not just as you continue to succeed climb higher on that Star Poll and climb up those wrongs I feel like you are surrounding yourself with successful people and people that are more successful than you and I don't mean that in a way that you're not successful. Like I listen to Tim Ferriss or hear other people talk and say you are the average of the five closest people to Absa find so. Yeah. I feel like some people and this could happen in in comedy. This could happen anywhere but they hang around people that they're comfortable with and so if you might have click of comedians and things like that where they're they might be at the same level and they're not really propping each other up very much where I feel like you and and being. Able to perform for and hang out with and take advantage of the time of these performers. Headliners I feel like is is beneficial but I wanted to ask you I, mean it was at intentional or have. You have you always just been like this is how I can continue to succeed or did it just kind of happened by accident you got better and? You just find yourself hanging out with these people nothing by accident I haven't had wanted this happened to me because it has been a happy accident maybe will be but a- hoped you know that I'm able to back at work back as back as words into something by. As it happened yet. I'm all I'm very goal oriented always have been. So that is always purposeful everything I do from time I wake up to the time I go to sleep donald people say all the time but I truly mean it from time I. Wake Up to John. Michael. Asleep everything I do I do it with a purpose again, I don't have hobbies I don't I don't come into my office here just a severe let's figure out super fucking ads. I have a a plan. I know how to go about that plan at everything that happens from that comes from knowing and having that plant One of my mentors TA boroughs. WHO's in his business for forty years. Before he retired from doing comedy when all the way back to opening up hold as far back coast Egos but. He's the one who always really really make sure instill date mixture that I remember is business is show business, but the business comes first. So it's not gonNA always be. He had to give me this information was something that I knew I wasn't at that point yet. is now he's going to be the person who's the funniest person who's going to get that Gig. is going to be the person who can deal with the business side of this. Can you be on time? Can you do ask of you as a host those do that they give you can you do your time? On stage they tell you tweet tweet five minutes do twenty, five minutes not thirty, not twenty, twenty five. Can you hand yourself in the Green Room? Do you know how to pick and choose your spots can do you know how not to be a fan boy or girl? Will you when you're in front of these comics and doing your thing and so is it's a it's a lot of that. And then of course, doing your job when you're stage will speak volumes for you. But then there's so many things after that that can completely knicks. You could be as funny as you want to be on stage. But if you're up in Green Room anything sort, you still will get worked again. Damn. That's I. Hope All the Comedians that are listening here that letter resonate for a second because I think whether it's comedy or whatever you're doing. I think there's showtime and that's important entertaining people. But then everything behind that I mean if you're just an ass clown behind the scenes, you're late you're you whatever. And you're not professional. You're done I feel it's it's just. Crazy, and that's why I've always been these allies comics view talked to him I'm sure nine out of ten of them will say, I'm a hard ass. Dick. But it is, but it has ircus. Especially, if you're someone that I kind of took under my wing I, remember I have my own room. You're allowed to come out and work your set your five minutes set twice in a row to give two weeks in a row, which are notes after that fucking notes. Again, because of you can commit yourself to not just worked out here other rooms where you can memorize a five minute bit. I'd rather not have you here. you know there's always a timeframe did you have to be at a show on producing I? Don't expect to hear any later such such There's no one going to be drunk or high when you perform on the show that I'm producing things like that. So I've always had rules of these guys these girls because. If you really WANNA. Do this these things are only going to help you. I did a show with three three some people. Didn't care for the fact that they had to write a brand new five minutes. You Got Twenty minutes or so to write a brand new five minutes, they've they've thought will wide three minutes will be first of all because I said, it's fucking five minutes the second second. The second reason is because a lot of you think you can get up and go to l. a. where you can. Go here you can go there were you only get two or three minutes to perform if they don't know you so you can't do a five minutes that I can do twenty five minutes to right ear fuck you think you're going to be left pressure out there. So is all done with a purpose to prep preview I mean I, follow it on my face now went out in Iowa. NBC and. It and I got Something that I could not ever get which was nervous and they only gave you a minute to perform. You have one minute I've never performed with. been only given one minute so that really shook me. Is My first time doing it and I got I'm glad I got through that but I completely photo my fucking fix so. Happens. It's GonNa happen everyone. That's why that's what this time is for us to prepare you and get you set so. That's awesome I may. I could see some people seeing it as being a hard ass but ultimately, it's like a huge favor to everybody that wants to really be serious about this because that's like. If they end up going to bigger gigs and they have these habits ingrained in them to be able to not even have to think about being a professional. That's that's a huge thanks to you. If you. If you think I'm addicted which wait till, you get out here and you deal with some these bookers and some of these folks here and you're GonNa have a real fucking heart tie so. Damn that's crazy. I also wanted to circle back on one thing you sat from when you wake up to when you go to bed, it's business you're goal oriented and everything I wanted to ask a little bit about that I have a little bit of trouble. Getting up in the morning and being goal oriented I. I don't know whether it's I I'm a little bitch, and I don't like to wake up, and so I I sit there I ended up doing I ended I implemented something where I would grab my phone because that was my alarm and I would flip through it for ten minutes ten minutes or wasted so I was like fuck That, I'M GONNA. Take my phone and I'M GONNA put it ten feet away. So I have to get up actually physically get up and then and then I'm up and I'm not lazy and just trying to be on my phone and it works. So I've gotten that done. But I have my wife and I wake up at five twenty five every morning because she goes to work at five. Thirty? She's working from home. I don't have to work until eight, thirty nine. So I've got three hours and so I usually, I've crafted a routine as much as I can sometimes I deviate from it a little bit but I feel like that has helped me so much to wear the routine helps me not have to do it much critical thinking let me it's ingrained in my in my. Brain. So I can just go to it and and keep doing whether it's I make my breakfast for my wife and made then. I. Go and right and then I go do some podcast off outreach whatever. Right. So I wanted to ask are there any helpful tips if you wouldn't mind sharing if their secrets I? How did you know I keep a lot of secrets did you now out? Of Your question so great. Awesome I was just GonNa ask are there any things that you've implemented to be able to get in that mindset right away from when you first wake up I think you have to know why are you in this business i? Think there's two types of comics. Those are they're hobbyists, and those are career comics at your hobbyists. Out. have any I don't have any problem with you. That's what you WanNa do you just trying to get out of the outside he to get away from the wife and the kids every once in a while your hobbies podcasters that's fine too or this is what you before career. So I think it's I figured out what it is you WanNa do if you're hobbyist than five hobbyists, I probably don't have a lot of conversation with you but Kudos to you for figuring that out. This is what you desire to do the why did you decide to do it and let that be will fuel. You I know what my goals are I mean I guess I'll ask you why do you do this? Is this you really WanNa get into or just you just just trying to pass the time. Yeah. It's a great question. So I'll give you a long answer. We're on a podcast so. I was going to do I found my passion comedy. So I started to do stand up and I was doing podcast for a little bit before I up starting the podcast because I wanted to keep in touch with my two brothers I was in New York they were in Arizona I ended up moving here they lost interest and said fuck you we want to do other stuff. So I was like all right fine don't feel don't feel my dreams but I ended up still doing it and then I started getting into up because I really respected the craft and I thought that there's a lot that goes into somebody that takes Any moment that they find and can extract the funny out of it. So I started doing stand up and I did that for a couple of months and then I reached a point where I said, okay. I. Feel like I can do podcasting or stand up on top of spending time with my wife and making money from my nine to five job to make sure that we have a roof over our head, etc like I feel like I can give one hundred percent to one of these things and I don't want any hobbies I wanNA do a one hundred percent either be a full-time podcast her and make this my full-time Gig. Or. Do Be fulltime stand up and I ended up going with the podcasting because a number of things I feel like it was a little bit more flexible with my schedule and I felt like I could try and get other guests that didn't have to be in the same spot as me, and I could still learn surround myself with comedians or people that were really good at what they did and so I ended up going that route and so I broke up it was a hard conversation by broke up with stand up. and. We might get back together. Occasionally we have a one night stand or something like that. But. It's it's right now over with with me and stand up and I'm trying to do podcasting because to answer your question I, WanNa become a fulltime podcast her and I, WanNa make a living from doing this. So and so so what I would say someone like you or someone like me, how I used to be is fine which five what you WanNa do have her file how far out you really WanNa access thing and always remember that this saw one more talented in better voicing you better looking to you who's probably working harder than you when your fucking Lanta row fucking around on your phone. and. So if you want to get, there is the Work Ethic Matt. The work ethic is where ethic is where it's going to be at. And this is just it's no fucking secret people ask how did you get that and how did you get that and how did you end up agreeing Roman? Work Fuck it works there's no secret sauce. There's no fucking special recipe if we will all be fucking where Kevin Hart is Right now work. When my favorite things that Kevin says I'm paraphrasing him is. Shows. A Hollywood has where making sixteen years of hard work with like his overnight. It's a sixteen fucking years to finally break the way he broke and be on top where he is sixteen fucking years. So you can get started now and get through your fifteen sixteen years or you can do it not do it do it not do it? What's Everybody else who started along with you do in his fucking succeed and be mad a second date because you fucked around type. So is work work work at NECESSA- There is no secret to it. Just remember every time. You're not doing what you're supposed to do someone whether Arizona Africa wherever it is someone else's working you you will never outwardly net knepper. Our our right morning, you outlived the stage more you out create more than you a be more professional you. You'll never ever outworked me if I don't ever get to my. Dream my goes WHO's Adrian goal. It won't because I didn't work hard enough. It'll that door just didn't open forever fucking reason. Yeah Yeah. God at such good advice and it seems like it would be common sense but people are always looking for some. There's some secret sauce or some secret hack. Lazy. Is there there's no hack for this can business. Every fucking story that you going off he or she went out to l. a. someone found them in a grocery store. Okay. Well, that's one for every fucking thousand people who were still Working at starbucks China to handle script sun one or going out and doing three or four different mice out in La. Low. It should be three or four different Mike's ear and working out and working up to ship is worth workman is nothing else to it? You're absolutely right. It reminds me of this motivational Speaker Les Brown I, Love Less Brown, Wilsey way back. Yeah. Yeah. I. I would listen to one of his his speeches. I think it was called hungry and you're talking about how you gotTa be hungry and he had this sales associate co-worker of his it was like man my sales are down I don't know what to do and he's like how many sales do you do a day twenty, five Dublin he's like, Oh, I can't do that and he's like what do you think you can't do that you're behind your payments and you think you can't put in more time at work it's like the work. and. My example of doing instead of one or two podcasts a week five or six I feel like I have grown so much because I work in and. Out You're speeding up your ten thousand hours by doing that and I would say less thing that sounds great and I know your favorite one. Hundred. Whatever it is, but it's more than out. It has to start from even with that salesperson. Is this what you desire to do because if it's not when you really designed to do, you'll never be hungry enough I. Don't give a shit if your car payment is later you're you're rich do I hate my fucking job? So if you hate your fucking job, you will never ever have enough hunger to to to do that. You have just enough. Hunger to survive not enough hundred would be great. So you have to figure out what it is you desire to do how great do you want to be at it if his podcasting like you talked about it and you find what your goal is an keep that golden your head don't be afraid to go back and and talk and definitely be afraid to kick your own fucking ass no one should be kick. Your Ass Oregon, you kick your ass. Yeah that is so true. It's like I need you I need you in my life to just be right behind me like what the fuck are you doing can you can you're busy? I'm very busy. Book. I can't type for that but. If you're. Going to reach out bit by some that begin. I really appreciate that and I think in the meantime, what I'll do is I'll take little snippets of what you just said like stop being a little bitch and second your own Dick. While other people are doing stuff I'll have those just play them back. So I can fueling myself for anybody there who's going to hear the podcasts on a a loyal listening a band based If you are happy with where you are. There's nothing wrong with that either. I started out by saying if you're a hobbyist comic, your hobby of Obvious Braggart. Wherever, you are life if you're happy with it. Then, be okay with it but might vices for the person WHO's not happy? You're really I'm never happy. So this soul might think is always the other thing I will say this mixture, your mate's. Girlfriend boyfriend whatever it is husband wife knows what your goals are because. my wife knows that I would step over her dead body to get to where I'm trying to get to. Them. So I haven't told my wife that exactly, but she is aware that this is something that's really important today. And she's been yeah. Yeah, and she's been there's another dead metaphor I like that. That's good but. I'll look at it I saw him. It's good to I. Think. Even, the language that you're using shows the passion that you have for what you're doing and I think a tweak. Hey, if you're if you're not happy with where you're at listeners and you need to make some changes, everything Sydney said, and you know have some more macabre metaphors in their somewhere passionate metaphors violent. I like I'll take you. I also wanted to say you also have a pretty big fan base and I also wanted to talk quickly about your podcasts because they know we talked about three of them so far upcoming project in the next four to six weeks I wanted to ask what started the and I don't even know if I want to just limited to podcast because it's also like live streaming show. I love what you do about it and how you involve in you make it interactive you call people out into in in a good way saying, oh, this person's joined. Thank you for joining and give a little background information read the comments discuss them I've been listening to now that's debatable I love both you and your co hosts. I think you guys are both you guys have a lot of. Similar perspective some different perspectives and you make it fun. While contentious sometimes, it's always entertaining for me. So I really like it. Yeah. I wanted to ask a little bit about it in what started it up and then we'll start there. Yeah. Now that's available. Um says you're asking about that with specific. Actually was supposed to be something thousand apartment with another comic and we were going to be shorter. Format was one subject that we would talk about it debated and was going to be things. They're really not that important was my first episode was you know who? WHO's hotter? Carmen Electra or Jenny. McCarthy. China bring that back. Those hotties for back from that day from those times. And? I'm a very serious person. So. It's tough me to have conversations about things like that that I don't really. The. Net much worthiness to it So we can expanded for that into what it is. Now where we talk about anything and everything because I believe talking about anything and everything where this politics race religion and everything underneath that umbrella and outside of that umbrella and so. With my with my brothers. My brothers Dion Curry. Very funny comedian. At wrote feature is Indiana and my other brother Award Winning Speaker Stan Pearson out of Atlanta. To very smart guys, Deanza Socialist I'm a Republican at Heart stands the Democrat and we just have you got three black guys in the thing that I loved about it mostly three black guys. On the show, but we do exactly the opposite of what people think when you think about black men they think about like many think we're all the same they think we all believe the same we all speak the same. So and so forth. So this show lets me give that image of what we really are and very diverse in our opinions in our looks in the way we speak and how we come across idea. So something I definitely enjoy and you're right we get heated like we're at a family barbecue sometimes and we even get heated with the audience. which I enjoy it because our audience is really come apart show I love being able to be interactive with them. Make sure that they party show while that's that's always to me more. Than anything else deals with the show especially with the climate that we're in and the way things are moving forward with social media and a lot of different things you're seeing people want to be included. They don't WanNa just sit back and be a bystander they want to be involved and that show all three shows allow I. we allowed to do that. That's awesome I. Also, I know you're talking about the difference in opinions and everything diversity there. Also in temperament I love to see your serious face dion a little less serious and then stance got this mild. It just cracks me up. But it's really good did so. I think it's a great format for the show I love the topics you talk about I also think that you're just a smart dude because I the topics you talk about I think are great and I know that I think I, heard you on. A radio show that you frequently guest yes. Always a conservative radio show out of Dallas. Early Morning I was getting up at. Four in the morning, every four, four, thirty in the morning every morning. So it'd be on the air by five and do so God and then I will go from that into my regular day. Damn Damn Just. Another example of grinding and purpose gotTa have purpose and you know when you do that that type of thank you'll be surprised how many people you're not gonNA meet people you're not gonNA get opportunities by sitting around going back to the nine and I know you're not doing this morning I loved to not. But for people are not gonNA get any opportunities by. Laying in bed scrolling through your phone for ten or fifteen twenty minutes. First thing in the morning. That's now Robert somebody comes from garbage wounding. By looking at social media we supposed to be working and that's whether you were for yourself or you work in an office you know you you desire to have that promotion but what are you doing to make sure you get it? Of course you got to nose down on your computer white actors, ocean getting those things done. A lot of things happen inside of the coffee in the break room or they happen you know saying the right thing to the right person maybe being the right conversation is is all doesn't happen just within a box of what are you doing to purchase a positions which? Yeah that's so such. A Good Combo here I wanted to ask one more question before we get into the self-help de I know that you see your so goal oriented and you see this as a business which days with I feel. Comedy is difficult in the sense that it could be a struggle sometimes where you're working hard. You've got this mentality of like, let's get this this this and this done. Comedy being silly stuff. Funny stuff. That type of thing have you ever encountered moments where? It's hard to transition from that. That mentality. That's like grind grind grind to funny funny. Funny. I'm not sure if I'm making sense ryegrass in terms of funny funny on stage and just having fun with. Oh no in terms of like writing or or whether it's on your show or anything like that 'cause I and the reason I ask is because sometimes in the more, let's say in the morning part of my routine I try and write for at least twenty minutes and so I'll get there and I'm just in. I, I'm not able to extract a lot of gold because I'm still just digging out Cole or just shitty thoughts or groggy thoughts or things like that or thinking about the next thing. So. It's hard for me because I'm thinking of all these goals and all these different things and so just being able to relax I guess and and really let the comedy flow is a challenge for me. I would say just like I told you before about my show talkback, which is my first show and I love it I facebook live show and I love it and I did I put a bullet in his head off even though I loved it, you can't you can't be afraid to. You can't be afraid to shake things up and and get rid of. So if you're thinking has been, what you're doing now is trying to write first thing in the morning maybe that doesn't work for you doesn't work for everybody maybe right in mid afternoon lunch break or right at night. When you go to bed there's other things that you could be doing with that twenty minutes to get your suffer aired on. You could be researching things as the number of different things that you could be doing. You could be reading some great articles that may be applied to China do. You have to move things around regret what works for you right in the twenty twenty minutes in the morning just may not be your thing. So say change it up. Shit while. I took I took an entire week of writing this as we just because I. Just because I was. Having a huge writer's block and I hung out with a couple of friends of mine a couple of days we have some drinks and guess what happens I was able to relax flows not be able to get back to the script that I'm trying to finish up and. Start shooting at a couple of weeks. So gotta do what you gotTa do change things up from time. I love that. Have you ever thought about starting a motivational channel? Man. Fuck that nosediving that Yet I've thought about it but then I, it'd be get some more than my belt. I sometimes I look at guys are both trying to motivate people who the fuck you? China, motivated. So I don't want to try to motivate people who really don't want to be because when people don't want to be motivated, they can tell you fuck off. You could be getting in. The world. A, you and I don't want. I am. Yeah in the morning I think for me but. Gotcha Gotcha well, I'll tell you what you motivated this guy. So I'm definitely I have a couple takeaways with me and I'm going to definitely. Try and take a little break on the writing in the morning. Try It. I think I might just take a week off and try and either reinstate it, and then if it doesn't work, try mixing it up on lunch break or. Because he just maybe pressing when he's not coming to you. What do we do whether you're writing your planning the sport you press and you probably didn't need to maybe take a week away from it and then come back to it. Now onscreen raised on a factory should just doesn't flow because tell it to so gotta make sure you keep property looped up. You know whether you go out with the wife or have sex with the white for or have sex life. Yeah that just made me think you can't force direction by being a good hard get hard. Get hard. So saying. And more he may not be your time. You ever tried to have sex with first thing in the morning it's tough. He may be better and. Better, later today better than the blood flow better later today. That's true. Lunch break or after you're right, you're absolutely right. Oh, man. We're tips all around for all sorts of juicy. Your wife is GonNa. Love this weekend after this conversation.

That's great. We'll Sydney. Thank you so much what we're going to get into the self help portion of the podcast. So we're going to answer some questions. But before we do I, like to have an inspirational quote. So we can get juiced up and be able to answer these questions fully motivated right. But before I get started on my quote to ask my guests if they have any motivational quotes that help get them through their days. Yeah and Douglas Say, I'm not going to quote it word for word against another airfreight Kevin Hart again, and we've all seen it all over the place. And it's. Everybody everybody wants to be famous but nobody wants to work hard for. So true. So That's Great God. Well, I feel so motivated. Now I feel like to stop this and then you do you did a great job I love I love the podcast far you gas great questions, you professionals, GonNa, see you win man so I'll thank you. Thank you. I really appreciate that. All right. So that was a great quote I feel a little ashamed to bring my quote. It's actually not a Kevin Hart or any comedian or any person really by a robot and it's called Inspire robot and what it does is it uses ai to take some of the wisest words known to man and just mash them together for juicy quote. Gotcha. So we'll try and figure this one out and We'll see from there but this week Inspire Abbad says think that you are physically attractive and normal. Think that you're physically attractive in normal. So while that's soaking in, I'm GonNa just venture a guess on what this I shouted out to me I think maybe inspire bots saying if you think you're physically attractive in normal I, don't think everybody is have not physically attractive people out there. So if you think you are and you think your normal, it's just going to do wonders for your psyche. So you're not gonNA feel secure and you're not going to say, Oh, should I talk to that girl 'cause? I'm not normal to freak. So so I think that that's helped me in sometimes. They make. Their you that's inspired by China say until you making t make. Good jobs by. Awesome. Well, now that we're inspired, we're going to go into some questions this. This first one is from read it. It's found by her Fan Rodney. Thank you, Rodney. So raw says. Thank you Rodney I suddenly disgusted by foods I used to love I used to be able to eat a lot of different types of food. But now I get disgusted by even the thought of certain foods I used to love like grapes and eggs how can I like them again? And that's it. I I would say this Rodney just answer yes yes. All right right now say this don't waste your time trying to like things that you don't like. Move on from it that was probably saying, he was saying person we try to stay in contact and friends with people that you do care for. You should be friends with anymore learning just getting rid of things. Let it go move on like fucking eggs and grapes. That's why you know what I used to like can can candy more shrimp I used to like shrimp can't fuck do anymore which you know what I'm over move off that's it Oh damn. Okay. I was going in a completely different direction but I liked that one bucket don't waste your time. You know there's so many other fucking foods the what do you live in a place? You can only get grapes and fucking eggs. Shopping. Because Obama go. I love that yeah. I mean to your shrimp thing. There's plenty of other fish in the sea to be able to eat. So there's like so much food out there. Like an island, he said network fucking pigeon NFL can. Be. On the island of exit. The only. Concern who so concerned with eating eggs and grapes ooh is so distraught. With. My granny a what if you ever come to show don't ask get fucking integrate and hang out you're not going back to. The agreements will be filled with fucking grapes in eggs. It's going to be decorated with graves and eggs all over the how can I like them again? Oh, good writing. What a straight? Yeah I was thinking of it like you know if you if you've been married for a long time now from personal experience obviously. Just, sex gets a little monotonous you try and spice things up, get a toy here or there or spice it up what if you just spiced it up with your food and just? You know. Let's get these. Donate the. Let's get into with the world. It's you the white for having problems and Let's dig into that. What's what's really going on at the White House to get some toys and you got to be okay with it. That's that's all right. Anytime a man talks about Brigham toys into the bedrooms because this is what we're doing and you better be fucking. Okay. Exactly, it's never the guy's idea to be like showing toys to this guys like could we bring another girl into this and the lives like absolutely not can we bring a toy into this thing like I do I have a choice? So you don't want to be the guy who says, let's bring another girl we here because you don't know what the outcome the situation is go be. It's very easy to do I remember taking my brother up to college years ago. And I'm hung out with them the first night we're Hinson House parties in advocates I'm hanging out with his buddies at is a bunch of hot chicks in the bathroom, and this is this is probably the best I ever seen on campus I wanted to mentioned school. but there's a bunch of hot chicks in his bathroom and trying to put one more girl in there and the boyfriend is out that going going babe go and they. She's all right. She goes and he thinks he's gotta go in with the girls shove his aspect of the battle shut the door and lack. To sits down next to me laughing he says, what do I do as that would tell you be careful which turn your radio on to. You will make that fucking mistake again. Shit Oh my God I sell out of experience. I. Have never had a massage TWAT but. Why did I say like that I've never had a threesome. You said it I know you can never have one. Very, very clinical. What are you do? What's your? What's? I'm a digital marketer okay. No doubt. No doubt you just very I've never had a nudge a walk. I've never had synergy with me to other women. You say like that you're never going to. Certain. So. I feel like I feel like and maybe this is coming from the perspective of someone that's never had it in his envious but I feel like it so much better in here than in reality and buy in here for the Audio folks in your mind just better as a fantasy and not a real life thing because like you said, you don't know what what could actually happen so. Everything is always better in your mind. Out there yet all employed all waste your. Time. On that just WANNA juicy steak. I gotTa have a stake in you go and the wife is late getting home to get ready. You gotTA gotTa stop and get fucking gas and all these different things you get there and it's a thirty, forty five minutes but I, want this fucking steak. That's his fucking plant. You take the first bite you like. This is yet why did I want this? So badly, this is terrible. So these are always better in your mind always. Maybe, that's why Rodney doesn't like eggs and grapes anymore. Maybe he ended up having horrible experiences that led to a shitty experience of the eggs. So maybe maybe on that point have a great day do everything in your power to have the best day. Possible. So then you'll be in the mood for your eggs or your grapes, and you can associated with positive feelings I'm thinking about in each of the heavy menagerie twelve with great snakes and that's why. Didn't go well for him. So yes, you're probably right one at a time brought me one at a time. There we go. All right. Off. All right we got the next one. This is from read. It's from our fan tiffany. Thank you, tiffany. Says helped me think of something to tell my bosses why have a black guy? I'm a nanny to a three year old. My black is pretty faded now, but still a good shiner my boyfriend accidentally elbowed me in the face while we were bumping uglies I don't feel like it's appropriate to tell my bosses that but I can't think of anything to say and I know they're going to question me, please help me. A while some good something good I would say you've got an elbow in the face fucking. That's what I was saved because if you are a nanny for three zero, those two people have not asked sex in three and a half years. So they're willing to listen to any juicy sex stories you have. But one of them would probably elbowed each other in the fucking face once or twice back before they had they. Tell the truth tell the truth. That's what I was saying don't make it up on honesty's the best policy. I think you just gotTa go in there and be like Mr and Mrs Smith. I was doing a romp with my boyfriend and God this is why does it show that I never have sex ROMP MAGGIO TWAT? ISSUE, is. It shows understanding a why I'm with your wife will not having sex with you. Which? On your things like. Baby you. WanNa romp tonight maybe. That's why it's not working because that's why it's not working. Oh my gosh. What are we doing here? What are you? All right well. I play backstreet boys is that bad or out of his nineteen ninety-four not at all I don't know. But I've got the millennium out. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. It's She's got to. Tell the truth tiffany because anything you say they're not gonNA believe anyway. So they're gonNA think they're gonNA think someone you got into a bar fight or some jazz so just Got To believe. There you go. Yeah exactly and you know what you'll know if they try and make spice things up if they have black is the next day too because I think you're right. This could give them inspiration or the black I may be her interest in two they manezh while they're romping. Oh my gosh. This this is the most times on this podcast. We've said montage twelve and I'm loving it backwards. It's And it's a great idea I mean you never know. Boyfriend might not be so happy about it but. Have you seen US economy.

It's called embedded twenty twenty behind the scenes and as watching episode. Two of the taylor hall signing and other. It was great. They give you a hockey fan. And you're curious about the art of the deal of these free agent. Signings go down. I think you'll find it fascinating and annual basically see in this video how exactly the signing of hall to the sabres came to be and And all the other things that were going on with free agency. Of course taylor was the big fish so they had other things to to deal with. But it was all focused on taylor hall and kevin adams is the brand new rookie. Gm in buffalo. So he's working around the clock with the scouts. And things and you get all the phone conversations back and forth with taylor halls agent and kevin adams and honestly. I felt so inside. I felt like i was almost intruding. Knows like as the viewer. I was like cheese guys. I'm not sure i should be here. Do you want me to go or So it was really good and then on the other side they waited. Okay as you get a call. Why one deal exactly. This is taylor hall we're talking about a former. Mvp why at this stage in his career as he signing a one year contract. So taylor ho and his age they call back wondering about that and The sabre sign on to that because because of the world we're in right now because of it and the uncertainty moving forward financially in the business says the only reason they did it in taylor hall for some reason signed off on it but it was I thought really well done and interesting while you know what i'm always looking for. I'm a big tv watcher. You know net flicks crave prime and all that stuff. And so you know. I'm the go-to for the series series. So i'm about reality shows. I like so you've given me an option. Now i can. I can get off real housewives of beverly hills. I i can start to watch something a little better. The michael jordan one was really good. I don't know if you watch that. Speaking of sports documentaries. I got too late and i felt like i'd missed it because the whole world was talking about it at a time when there was no sports during covid. And it felt everybody's watching everybody's watching it and ended by the time. Got around to watch that now. I felt like so kinda done now. Everybody's that thing to death. I feel like i've already seen it. Yeah no it's good. Oh absolutely. I heard that too. Yeah it's it's really good. I liked the. I like the. I like the docs. I remember just texted it to you by the way i sent you a link to the actual youtube channel okay. I'll watch that you know. I've watched i've watched other. I don't know. I think of this but you know the comedian russell. Peters is that his name. Yeah canadian comedian. That's right yeah. He's hilarious east indian guy. He's he's hilarious. They did up. But i never. I never really liked the guy you know. I met him a couple of times and He sort of rubbed me the wrong way he goes on. He goes onto the list of the look by right. Oh i hate that you know we all know what the look by if you don seven reset that so the look by his is you're talking to someone and they keep they're just not interested in you. Keep looking by you because there's someone there's someone behind you that the conversation started you were as good as it got but things have improved since then and he wants to move on from you while you're talking to him exactly exactly. Yeah i used to be a bit of a look by myself. So i know what it is. I think i was getting the look by on russell. Peters and then he had a dock documentary and i thought okay. I'll tune into this. Because i love to not like this guy and it solidified my. I love to not like this guy but it's inside. It's inside one of the one of the scenes from it is him in a in a limo. He rolls pretty big ended. Me doesn't shy away from telling people how he rolls what he does but one of them was in a limo and it was after a show that he did was he was reading an article from a critic and the critic didn't like him and his reaction to it is. Oh my god. This guy's fierce man. He's fiercely wanted to say so. It almost made me uncomfortable. But you come the. I liked dogs. I'm trying to. I'm trying to think of other ones. That i've watched very few are bad that i've watched on net flicks and The boys on the bus doesn't come immediately to mind i. I can't even remember watching that. It's so long ago Were you in that by the way this is about the eighty edmonton oilers one of the scene sitting around mrs apartment. They're all having dinner. I remember them shooting it. I think i ended up in their little cameo side profile. Shot or something like that side boob twenty. We stevie the doc you mentioned You know the michael jordan one is good dirty. Money is an excellent series of of episodes. I think you'd looked it up. Where companies sorta scammed their way to the top but got busted to misleading advertising in such great series great series. It's one of these ones where you go. Oh my god dude and then they get caught your eye. Oh no that's a good one. There's there's one about a check name. Elizabeth holmes who invented a company when she was nineteen years old called called. The're knows and so this thing. I'll just read that promised to revolutionize blood testing elizabeth. Holmes became the world's youngest self made billionaire herald heralded as the next steve jobs and she starts to dress like steve jobs. She starts to talk like him anyway. Shortly after she did it they figured out it was a scam and she made like she was worth a billion at twenty years old or something when she did this x. Anyway excellent doc. I think it's called out for blood in silicon valley. If win you recommend highly highly yup. Good some of the others. I've seen in the last little while would be Tiger king and everybody's probably seeing that by now beautiful. The octopus teacher you put me onto. I still finished it. I was probably built it up too much. Because you've talked about it so much and how much you loved it. I was okay. This is what i was just blown away by was just the cinematography of the thing like just such a beautiful looking documentary. The framing is amazing. The guy this isn't just a guy was a snorkeller. This is a guy who has decades of of video and film experience and you you can certainly tell i saw mc millions in the last year which was about the whole monopolies monopolies on right now. I think at mcdonald's but in the past few people got took advantage of the system and There was a lot of insider trading on that on that front. Somebody got hold of the winning tabs all and and lots of people made millions of dollars and they were able to suss it out and make. Mcdonald's had nothing to do with it. However the agency that they kind of farmed out to look after the contest whether it was a leak there and the person that had the league at all these winning tabs and he was freely distributed in them to Do people he knew to go out and get rich. Oh yeah so. It's quite interesting to see how that all went down. Now you can have such a breach security on something like that. I want to be his friend. The tab sorry and just backup steve on octopus teacher. It's it is a little slow at the beginning but really what it is is. This guy was a marine Film guy okay. That he did you know like like the jacques cousteau stuff that he filmed and then he was so love. The water grew up in the waters from south africa. But but the cool thing is he. Has this octopus that he goes back to see every day. This is real Becomes a pet of this guy and you just can't believe it like this. Octopus shows up at the same place every day and in five thousand billion kajillions leaders of water. Anyway it's it's cool. Give it a shot. Give it give it a little further. It's neat some of the Sports documentaries the best of all time according to esquire dot com esquire magazine. Of course would be. Oj made in america. It's a very well regarded Senna the story of auto racer ayrton senna. Y'all among their favorites. Good yes it is. Good couple of others will be kicking and screaming. No not a will ferrell soccer movie but it is a six part history of english. Football that The bbc put together. got no documentary in nineteen seventy dollars. Ellison the pirates says he threw a no no against the san diego padres while high on lsd. So hang on vert right to the top of the list right to the talk says like a good one tyson in two thousand eight is well regarded as well and Yeah there's lots out there for sure but anyway We got talking about this. Because i was talking about this buffalo sabres imbedded twenty twenty and i'd certainly if you're hockey fan give that look and has also mazed. How involved that their owner. Terry julie's like he's sitting there right at the table. I know he's writing the checks and everything. He's got some stuff to say he and his wife kim right there at the table Talking talking some hockey and kim's chiming in talking to taylor hall. And i found well ninety nine times out of one hundred. A very engaged owner is usually a recipe for failure right. Jerry jones of course comes to mind up. Speaking of that going inside on agency. Thing i i had larry kelly great guy. Ottawa guy agent hockey agent. He was you know he's been around long time. You're league hockey with them. There you go right is a wonderful guy. And he was you know. Dominik hasek domenico buffalo table below dominant. Contact steve is was one of his guys from auto anyway. I got him to do one of my radio. Deals there at chum. And so i was like into this thing and i started started going to my head a little bit okay. They were talking for some days for sure and Yeah i could see that happening. And i was sitting around. What are you gonna. What did they say you want. Come back with this really. You're in your trailer waiting for your close up. Yeah exa- larry's going to pipe down there. Scooter okay just pipe down right and then so it was fantastic okay. It was fantastic and then well. That's great larry. That's that's great. Thanks a lot. You know for for negotiating that thing and i said in a bad move right hayler to get them to throw in a golf club membership but the on cup okay. And as i'm talking to them right they'll the the line goes it gets disconnected right. It goes dead night iphone back. I don't know what happened there. We got we got disconnected. And he said no we didn't i hung up his why and he said because you're a bit of a dink shut up with your golf course go by your own you know anyway. That was my one and only experience with an agent. So you can see how it goes to people's heads you know in in that sabres documentary. I gotta say taylor hall didn't sound like that at all again. A former hart trophy winner number. One overall draft pick probably had multiple teams. Come after him and he just sounded like a pretty reasonable guy. None of that. Can you get them to throw in a row a porsche for me or whatever. Jimmy i was just gonna say. That's jimmy being jimmy. Their little little full fist of humble pie from from. Larry you bring up a great thing about what what are what are or would be or were or gonna be extraordinary negotiated contracts and i think of a couple of Which of course. I don't know the full facts or details. The bobby orr story with alan iverson is totally interesting. Because i think bobby orr had negotiated or had the boston bruins offering him a percentage of the team. Here's the background on that. By the way so eagleton's negotiating a new deal for him in nineteen seventy six or wanted to stay with the bruins at that point and the bruins desperately wanted him and like you said. They offered him an eighteen point. Five percent stake in the team which is worth millions if he's day but eagleton had what they would say Unethical ties with chicago blackhawks. Bill words who also wanted door and eagleson concealed boston's offer from or and convinced him. That boston did not want him to stay so or signed the deal with chicago. Can you imagine happening that happening today. Oh my god you mean you mean the deal itself. Twenty percent of a team. Roughly no i don't even care about that for an agent to deceive his own. Client like that of for sure. That was one of things that the guy was accused of know. You're not going good when they rip you out of the hall of fame right right. Was alan abelson the other one. Is alex rodriguez. When he was negotiating deals with the yankees i think he got tried to get a percentage of the merchandise sales. We were talking about that. Nope last two above logos right with the jerseys and all that and what it means wise and all that stuff of course the yankees got the iconic logo. But i think he got like he was the one of the first guys to sign for twenty plus million or something a year but it was something like that like something where he tried to get concessions sales and merch sales or something so anyway you remind me of a great story on that front of an athlete and concessions Brad smith who had become friends with over the years Play beer league hockey with him. But he played for the ottawa senators and does pregame shows and things on. Tsn twelve hundred still lives here in town coaches minor hockey and stuff and Greg got and he played for a long time like bounced around at all levels of hockey ended up playing for over twenty professional teams and is final. Stop i believe it was. His final stop was a low level minor league team where he was playing for the denver cutthroats cutthroat to some kind of failing one anyway. The team went belly up and so that stage. I think i didn't even realize i was doing that So basically at this stage. I think he was a player coach at that point. And the owners like Well he's still owed brad money and the team is folding. And he goes well here. Take all our paraphernalia. So that's what he was left with kind of severance all these wore caps and shirts and so it was funny. So we play thursday at hockey with gordie wilson and for a few seasons for a few summers he would give out the player of the game award. They'd get a denver cutthroats ball cap. So i got a couple of those laying around the house. That's great the suspend ables interview that we did with larry robinson was last week show He made speaking of contracts. And maybe had a terrible agent steve but his first year with the montreal canadians he made seventy five hundred dollars. Unreal okay multi multi time stanley cup champs. Got his name on the cup. Ten times steve. Ten okay conn smythe vp. The whole the norris trophy winner larry robinson so that was his first year contract and then and then he said then that it skyrocketed because he got fifteen thousand is in fact not enough money that he couldn't just keep that job he. He got a job with the department of highways to walk because he needed more than what he was making a montreal canadian. That'd be the equivalent. Let's say here. I'm here in ottawa and So you know the top defensemen for the ottawa. Senators is thomas chabad and be like seeing him in the midst of his second season in the nhl when he really established himself as a very good defenseman. it'd be like seeing him it broadway waiting tables. What you imagine booting mazen of boulevard. Montreal look over and go frequent larry robinson their paving what crazy kevin role kelo speaking of contracts of years ago in the eighties We there was a saturday where we were floating. Down the river this scheduler. They've got a big big party. Put on the when klondike days. Ron which is like the exhibition. Okay and everyone gets a boat again. Some of the abilities votes is called the raft race sourda rafters and so you show up. It's a huge slobbering contest. Okay steve just like just get everyone gets annihilated and we're launching water balloons and drinking our heads off and and kevin was gonna come on the boat with us he had to go. He had a meeting with. Glenn say the general manager about his contract and he said i'll. I'll meet you down there in the morning. And so we hung in there waited before we left and he shows up jumps on the big grin on his face okay and vicious is his nickname so even call them fish and i said hey scooter. What's up with your your all beaming here. What happened with slats he said. Jimmy shake hands with a millionaire. I said oh yes sir. Two hundred grand for five years and he was paid. Well you know nine hundred. Nineteen eighty six or something like that so well i think about that was around the time. Eighty six eighty seven. That's when salary disclosure came forth for the first time. And larry robinson talked about that as well like nobody knew what anybody else was making see. Felt like okay. I guess this is all there is this is. This is a standard salary. I guess for what i work. I'm a first or second year. Nhl player okay. I'll take what they're giving me but the reality was. The owners screwed the players for decades and decades one salary disclosure once that was negotiated in the. Cba don't think the owners had any idea what that would mean. Maybe they had a but it was once it was there for all to see. Now i can start. I can start comparing say okay. Jimmy makes this. I want to make this right. And that's why the salaries are what they are today. But even you know when when kevin lowest signing that deal you talk about like. That's a hell of a deal back then right ca salary. Disclosure adjust occurred. I remember looking at the. When it first came out the first time we could see all the salaries in the nhl was published and doug wickenheiser a former number one overall draft pick back in nineteen eighty nine hundred eighty seven. I think he maybe playing for washington but he was making twenty five grand a year like unbelievable like that. Recently there was an nhl guy making that kind of money that let that little like i was making more in nineteen eighty-seven myself in a dinky little radio station up in renfrew ontario. Then a guy who's playing in the national freaking hockey league right. Yeah it reminds me of one of the great stores speaking of disclosing. You're right right chain. Change the whole fabric of of salaries right in professional sports. Certainly in the nhl. Remember steven one for the practical joke for the prank. You know and i went on a golf trip years ago with a group of guys and the the one guy heading up. The gulf trip handled all the expenses for it. Okay and he said all look after everything and now. I'll just send you guys a bill at the end of the trip. You know and i said fantastic. That's great you know and one of the guys in the trip was just one of these guys love to prank. So i wish you would have video that at at the time for his reaction so what happens is so everyone gets a bill. Okay for this trip and say it was like twenty two hundred bucks or something you know three or days off. We went on right so it's obviously split up evenly with everyone that was twenty two hundred and we all got the bill at the same time and we're sitting around having lunch in week after the these bills care right and he's gone he's brings it up right he goes. You guys got your builder from the trump. I said yeah. I did he goes. I thought it was a little steep didn't you. I said it's funny. You bring that up. Because i agree. Fourteen hundred eighty bucks is a little steep. He goes like because of course it was twenty two. Let's see what yeah. I agree way too. I guys useless. Offered three hundred extra bucks anyway. I do like to grind a guy i guess. Yup i only come back in the show. We're going to get into I know that we Got away from golf yesterday. Briefly. we're gonna do a quick thing on the masters because it was despite all our bleeding talking so much in recent podcast episodes about the masters. It was by far the least watched masters since the total 's were were kept back in the day lowest rated masters since one thousand nine hundred fifty seven with a three point four rating.

You should connect with glenn. Today at glen walton dot com. So james sunday's final round of the masters averaged five point five million viewers. That's a three point four rating so it's the lowest rated masters since nineteen fifty seven and the least watched two masters since viewership totals were kept beginning in nineteen ninety five. So how are a a couple of fairly obvious reasons l. Well first of all how can it be a lower rating lower television rating than nineteen fifty seven. There weren't even telling me this there were what the hell. That's the ratings based on percentages right. So if you're total possible viewership is a piece of pie. Then basically ninety six point six percent of the audience was tuned to something else even though not that many north american households had televisions in them. But yeah tv did exist in nineteen fifty saga okay. I'm going to guess y you you've got a list of reasons there that the fourth two big ones the two big ones. I think that one in particular is the absolute. I guess time of year. I dunno november something but Covert i would think everyone staying home to watch it. Maybe that it was on at seven thirty in the morning. The final round for me. No for me. I had to get up at seven thirty to watch and choosing in the afternoon nine thirty. Am was was the final grouping on sunday because cbs into football and they got a football game at four o'clock so that would i mean who's watching golf getting out of bed certainly in the west that seven thirty that would be why would think it'd be the lowest rate. Yes no no. It wasn't but you know what you make a make a decent point there that could be part of the mix as well but you brought up in the explanation of that the biggest reason of all. And that's the runaway popularity of the national football league. It's the first time they've had to go up against the nfl because this just in the nfl does not usually play in the month of april. Of course of course of course and the other one was that and this was. This is all theorizing right because nobody puts descriptions on their nielsen ballot. Or whatever the hell they call it. These days In dustin johnson had the thing pretty much locked away in the back nine. The back nine was described less of a A battle in more of a dustin johnson parade home. Now i. you're right like i said you were. You were so into it. 'cause you know dustin johnson your friends with dustin johnson so you were more into it than most people myself. I'm watching that thing. And i never got a sense in the back nine anyway like he got. He leaked a little oil near the end of the front nine but i found the once he got he sort of reaffirmed his lead. I just i felt like i didn't i didn't feel like dustin johnson was gonna blow that okay she performed. Yeah and i listen objectively. It's not 'cause. I like dust. And i just four or five shots back. Nine sunday at augusta is where it all comes down it. I'm surprised i'm surprised that that would be a reasonable people. Okay he's got a five shot lead. Nothing bad can happen out here in nine holes wall can't but anyways it's amazing tells you how big the nfl is. Obviously not not the we need another reason. We all know the nfl. Is you know at least in north america anyway. It is by far the most popular league to watch but You know we're talking. Run of the mill midseason. One pm kickoffs right. Some good games in there and everything but Yeah basically a lot of would be masters viewers were lost to the gridiron right. You know the other thing steve. That was interesting during the masters year. They didn't allow golfers to us. Greens reading books. Like you'll see what they all flip. Open their books out. The county has a book in the gulf has won so sure that greens reading book is really accurate. So what it is is know is a graph graphic of the green that they have and then they go. The caddies are out there all week rolling balls because they know where the pins are so for example. Here's you know the pin is at this location. There's there's an ex that's marked on the green. So they know. That's the the friday location for example and what they'll do is roll golf balls towards that axe from all sides. Okay and then they mark how it breaks okay so They got the huge advantage. Huge advantage from Your i for example. Who are out there so there. There's not there's not a lot left to chance when they're reading putz they've got this barbara. They look out the guy goes. I'm telling you i did this. I rolled it five times. This ball breaks left although it looks okay. So they've got that it's not really an advantage right. It's an advantage on schlep rocks like you and me but like literally. Every golfers caddy is doing that. That's right it's it's it's just an expected practice now and it's not really an advantage as a result because everybody does it well it would be. You would think. Okay what i meant to say mean maintenance as the okay. I went like the guy on taxi in the who tang long bang bang long. That's what they need and smorgasbord But look at it this way. So i've got greens book steve. But you don't okay and we're competing at a pro government. You're gonna freak right. You're going to say. I don't think so. They don't allow it steve at the masters this year. No greens books. Okay everyone shoots fifteen hundred twenty under. I didn't know they didn't have books. Yeah they weren't allowed and so the old timers from the pga. Arnold palmer jack nicklaus all these other guys gary player. They've been pissed that they're using these. And i've always said they shouldn't allow them and so everyone thought well this'll be crazy. They put the better who so just just goes to show because it takes a lot of time right there whipping through these. It's really boring. Viewing you know to see these guys walking back and forth and looking at these books so anyway we needed to call it a day my friend any final thoughts as we go going flat on my final thoughts stevie. Yeah it's alright. It's alright i don't. I'm watching the crown right now. Got us a very solid season. Four introduces princess di into the fray. They found some actress. I don't know her name. I should know if i'm going to bring it up on a podcast. They should probably look up her name. But i didn't. I'm i'm going final thoughts in your stead and She was terrific. They found someone who looked at very much. Like princess di and i find myself absolutely. I was never a big royal family guy to start with right. Why be watching the crown. I don't know but my wife likes it. So i sit down and watch it with her. I've never really appreciated the royal family. Now flat out. Don't like the royal family. I a bunch of jerks anyway. Still tv plus. I never believed you know speaking of that. I doubt naby. I loved by the way to. Oh yeah antenna was great and i watched the crown before they started changing the actors or they had a big fight in re in re they got a little ego maniacal the who should get paid more money as an actor and actress After that so. But i watched the first year or two. Where was the original actors. You know what i. Don't you know the royal family. Steve you see them on television right in. They're walking around. They're doing stuff. And know. I look damn going prince. Prince harry isn't there are the two sons who the two boys diamond harry william. And harry going. Prince harry is in a helicopter pilot. Come on. He's just wearing the uniform. Ergo with i think they just make stuff up steve about how accomplish. The kids are going are they. And what are they gonna come clean on. Who harry's dad really is true. They're speaking of documentary. Steve wouldn't that be good while the more watched the crown if it is in fact true and it went down that way they'd be. Nobody surprised now if again if that was all true. I don't know if it is or not could be hollywood taken liberties if that went down like that nobody would be surprised. If if princess di decided to seek comfort in the arms of another. Well look at so. He's ginger right. The sun Harrier william will harry. Oh harry's the youngest of the two that's right so he's a ginger as everyone knows look at princess di when she was hanging out with an a question guy james hewitt red haired guy look at him and look at the prince. They're gonna go. Oh come on come on. Yeah yeah. Yeah i cover. I've always thought that. And i think it more now that i've watched a season four of the crown and the way gillian anderson who plays margaret thatcher like she. She should win every emmy award. There is really okay market book. It book get anyway with that. We shall take our leave james. Go wash some television. You're going to be in trouble. Steve you know after we. Or maybe i will be saying you know ginger. Look at the guy. The guy was on. The polo team was hanging on. I expect a call from bbc this afternoon. Talk the lie. 'cause breaking the story. Here's all righty rehashing old. One that everyone's just letting that settle so i'll say i'll say got all the facts from you. Call warrants blame him. I let me just everything i said. They're both the royal family and stuff. Let me just finish it off here. Allegedly very go and now we're done. I'm saying nothing night everybody lesean.

We're gonna set up. Saturday night's game five pivotal game five in phoenix of the nba finals. We got the uptown. Report tweeted the night. Rapid fire fun. But but but but how is last night's happy hour. I gotta no. I wasn't there. Can somebody give me the highlights. Tko what did. I miss out on last night while i would say the first highlight was when lee showed up on the stream. Looking like one of the gallagher brothers from waste an outdoor mormon says sweat shirt button to just hangs down on his forehead given us. That are very whispering because the sleeping beside you. I had my wife and youngest son in one bit in front of me and i had nine year old son in mom and dad's bid behind me and i thought you know what i'm gonna wake up someone who's the one i don't want to upset the most. It's my wife. So i thought i'd be closer to my nine year old son. If i wake him up i can handle that. What wake up your wife for no apparent reason a little bit of a tough morning you have to. That copenhagen is just going through a heat. Wave right now. I just don't have air conditioning. So it's gonna have to use shady the copenhagen at the moment i am in the land resulting billing which is a bad three hours West looks background man. Yeah so it's It's stinking hot out here as well. So i'm sort of a show before the show to try to just cool myself down didn't really do much though. It came back out back in the midst of the year in the room so sad. Curtains are moving a little bit though. Is there some air flowing. Well yeah there is a bit of good open. Yeah just got the. There's no there shouldn't be any background noise. i mean. I'm taking a bit of a risky. That that would be yahoos at the back there screaming and making noise coming into this show but i just had to bad. It's just boiling hot near. The sun is beaming into my window as well so legal and now and you're at the hotel. Attached to legal land. Is that right. Yes yes land hotel. It is like las vegas for kids. It really is we train. We train down from copenhagen this morning to a town about fifteen minutes out of bill and then we had to white forty five minutes for boss to get to lega land and so at this point. I've got a nine year old and a four year old. Who just like just get us to legacy. We're on we're on. We're on the bus. We get random. Bet has lego land one as in one kilometer away from where we are the buses turning towards the other way another stuff at the airport. Oh my god. I was like my kids are just like it says leg. I last way. Stop the walk in there. We go pick up. Other people were on the bus here. Oh man i would. Not because because it was actually the airport. We went so we waited there for another ten minutes. And then finally some people come on and my nine road find. Oh yeah yeah. How many other nine year. Old florida for ten minutes. Then we came into the hotel and it was like would check in. And there's obviously just got with buckets of lego rodney and and the boys you know they just took off. And i'm like i probably should keep an eye on them but then almost like They're probably fine. Sorry they went off. And i saw them for ten minutes about About twenty minutes ago and they've gone out now to do some exploring but jd. Got some good news for you. check out. check out this baby. I've got here in the league. Now listen already look. I haven't got tons of room in my In my in my luggage. Jd id but i'll make an exception you just you. Just give me the word. I'll bring back. Indiana jones a life-size indiana jones. For you yes bring it back. Bring in the senate next to you and the plane seat for him. Yeah it's probably cheaper. Actually buy a plane ticket to by the indiana jones like. That's the thing when we check into our room. There was actually two little legos. Already on the beds as well. And i'm like oh my god this is this is just putting a free bottle of champagne in room in in fact it's not free a free vegas put it there and you're just like you just arrived to feel an in a good mood. You light running a pop the champagne and get into it so it's going to be a lego overdose here for the next couple of days with my boys. We didn't send like a camera. Crew with you to legoland leeann. I've watched the hell out of that series. The reason skeets samya no no says what happened over here. Bricks right okay. So there was. I assume there was a lot of lego talk last happy hour about a new app. Leeann info on one of the most revolutionary apps that i've actually heard described. Apparently you take any moment. Goes you point your app at it and it tells you what to build. Yeah that's pretty edible technology there like we should probably use the technology for something besides building lego. At least a good start. I wouldn't say okay All right so i missed. I missed a blast. It was like an hour and a half. I saw a conversation and the gym must have been floated. I guess it's not called happy hour and a half or nothing. That's gotta go an hour and a half. That's exactly right okay. Well let's get into into our game five preview and before i start just reminded. We're going to be back this weekend sunday morning we've locked it in ten. Am eastern live on youtube. We'll do a game five. Nba finals recap podcasts. Just like we do throughout the week. But we're going to do it on sunday because the game on saturday night or tied at two games apiece. What's the biggest question at this point in the series heading into game five tasks started. Well it starts with chris. Paul for the phoenix suns for me. Because the steadiest player on the son says been that steady. The last two games as monty williams said after game four. He said listen. They got nineteen more shots than we did. Part of that is offensive rebounds. A part of that is on chris. Paul who's at four six five turnovers. The last three games. Chris paul. He takes care of the ball. He's like an nfl quarterback. He doesn't give it to the team if he has at least four on saturday night. It'll be the first time poets committed four or more in four straight games since twenty eleven regular season replaces longtime. It's a decade. That's a that's an anthony slater status later stat for you. And i think if chris paul is taking care of the ball as well as shooting more he he had twelve less shots. In milwaukee combined. Those two games than he did in phoenix. I think that assertiveness. Chris paul being the leader. I think we'll trickle down to other guys like the andrea ayton who i think you know to takes his leave from chris. Ball also was a little bit worried that he was going to get into foul trouble so he wasn't assertive all night. His little floaters is were all floaters. And they weren't jams like ten to do you. Just you just wasn't it wasn't aggressive. He really wasn't. I think it sort of gotten us at night. You look at chris. Paul and his team shot fifty frickin percent. Isn't that what a point guard supposed to do. That's totally true but it's also a math game chris. Paul's gotta gotta shoot more. He's got put it on his shoulders. And i think everybody else will fall in line and you see at the end of the game. You're the bucks kind of had a special moment there at the end of game. Four sons leading the whole way. The bucks comeback. What are the blocks and nba finals. History from janas say could be one of those moments we look back on and say yeah. That's swung the momentum so their side. Those guys have been playing together for so long in twenty seventeen. Khris middleton head strep throat yanni said. I want to play with that guy because he played through it. I forgot that moment but that happened against the raptors but like they've been together for a long time now. The sons have to create sort of their moments on their side because the box are obviously not going to give it away. The sons have to take it and so it's about the grind for me. It's about eight and getting out there and boarding. It's about chris. Paul shooting more not turning it over. It's just one of those those those sort of regular boring basketball things that like. Qb brown or jack. Ramsay or mike fratello with talia we shop fifty percent. We lost how the heck does that happen doesn't happen an nba finals period. So take care of the ball eight and it's got to be more self. I think i think you can give him a bit of a pass. One game after getting into trouble for the first time in his playoff history and and his first playoff run. He had a bad game even though he boarded seventeen times. But it wasn't himself. So i think the shooting could still come back to earth for the sons but they gotta do other things shooting fifty percent. It's just hard to do. But nineteen shots gotta change. What about liz. Something you got your eye on heading into game five or a big question. At least i'm watsonville. Also watching that shooting in particular will the sons be able to shoot three pointers again. game to phoenix. Last time they played their the sons hit twenty. Three's obviously that was the biggest blowout. So far. This series devon booker seven of them. Three other starters for phoenix hit three three pointers. You throw in their game. One performance thirty one threes for the sons in their wins. But in milwaukee the sons went cold nine in game. Three seven game for that sixteen total. That's not gonna cut it for a perimeter based team. They wanna get those driving kicks going. Sometimes i feel like the sun's can struggle put pressure on the rim especially when aden really isn't getting involved. He's their main paint score the offense. You're getting from a guy like jae. Crowder mikhail bridges cam johnson. It's mainly going to be three pointers. And that's almost half the rotation right there. Those guys got to be able to shoot playing in front of their home fans the box. Meanwhile they've been way more up and down sixteen game one nine into fourteen in three seven. Four i guess that bodes well for a pivotal game. Five they should be in the double digits playing on the road again. But you know sometimes it comes down to three pointers. The sun's look their best when all of their guys are able to actually hit threes as most teams do. But when you're built around guards when you're built around a small four jae crowder and all the guys are bringing in off. The bench are going to be basically wing. Players are playing a position. you gotta be able to make threes. So that's going. Be something i'm watching for and i feel like a task one hundred percent right chris paul. The full court pressure seems to be getting them a little bit and he's kind of just content to digital away and hope it comes back rather than going out and taken over. When booker went out with his fifth foul early in the fourth quarter. That should have been chris. Paul time you know. The sons were leading at that point chris. Paul throughout his career has been. I'll play point guard for three quarters. Takeover in the fourth quarter. We did not see that at all in game four. And if he's hitting threes. The sons look so much better as well lee. What about you big question for game five. Well we saw. Chris middleton really step up in game four there so the question becomes now for me is will drew holiday. I know he's got a lot to do defensively. He has been very good. Certainly those two games in milwaukee against crispell but will we actually see a drew holiday really good offensive game. I mean you had twenty one points in game. Three probably is best offensive game in the series but he just hasn't been shooting the ball well enough full for twenty in his last game including far from downtown now they won the game and his defense really impacted. What chris paul did so great. He's not it's not like he's at they're just hot dogging it on both ends. He's contributing. But i just think you're going to get. It's it's hard to see. Chris middleton having another forty point game in phoenix. I think if you can get twenty out of khris middleton and maybe twenty to twenty five out of drew holiday. I think that's the best chance the box have actually winning because jaanus is probably going to have to do a lot again as we saw him. Nice i him to where he was great but when the bucks get that supporting help and again you sort from middleton the massive in game four. I just think there are much better team. I mean. it's obvious isn't it. When more plays contribute the team is better. Remember those two games. Janas missed against atlanta hawks. They got great contributions from a lot of their starting five. Now drew holiday. I mean he was boarding specifically. They gave up a lucked get him now. Let's actually see if he can in the biggest game really of the bucks season. He again five. Saturday night in phoenix. If he can actually swing the narrative back to a like saying this is why they upgraded from eric. Bledsoe i mean again. He's been better than bledsoe but he probably hasn't been as good as we would hope to hope to have been seen from him on the offense events and now he's got a chance to do that because this is just. This is the bucks season i think right here. I really do believe they have to win. Game five to win the series. Obviously they can lose it and then game six and seven and still win. But i feel the game. Five is pretty much a must win. For the milwaukee box. They have to win a to give themselves a chance to close out the series of harm they can do that. It's going to have to be a con contributions from everybody. Andrew holiday is one of those guys who he needs to have a good shooting performance. A really good hit a couple threes. Funny what you're saying with. also chris. Paul needs to do that too. It's like which one of these guards is gonna maybe have the three or four three pointers hit in this particular game. Some timely ones and help their team's chances of winning it do you believe in momentum -ly when it comes to a series all the blocks momentum right no by honest i absolutely don't because if it did a series would probably be a sweep every time because Confidence i like you know people say i'm confident comfortable. You can say you confident all you want but honestly confidence to me is is body language is hey you look at the shots take is. Hey you get into your flow because it's more of a feeling it's not a it's not a. It's not a thought. I mean you say it because you wanna you wanna give off that vibe. That like i'm coming. I'm gonna go out there and win but every both teams are confident. Both teams think they're the team. Both teams think. They've got the momentum in some form and both teams zinc. Well like because if you'll the sons you like well we're ju- for vance back. Feel the box. We've got the momentum so we get a with none of that actually counts. It's whoever does play. The best is going to go out there and win so no i. I mean certainly within a series of more so because of matchups or just. For whatever reason i mean you see we've seen it in other series for example like terrence mann playing in and out of a series for the clippers having a great guy but also in that same series barely getting off the bench so for whatever reasons i'm causing field but those sorts of things we talk about cliches but they don't actually exist because the box if they believe in it great but the sun's don't believe in it at all now so yeah but i will say like a guy mckell bridges. We could see why he might play better in phoenix than he would on the road in a hostile atmosphere. Maybe because he was great a lot better in the first two games in phoenix tasks and he was like we almost never talked about him in those games. Three and four. And i'm not saying he's the star player but he's a starter and he's an important player on this team and what they do on both ends so i just wonder if some of those guys specifically him maybe even eight and a little bit have a better performance hearing game five with their crazy fan base going and then what effect does that have on us at the free throw line. Some of their supporting players like is pat content hitting three threes in phoenix. Like he had those big ones. In milwaukee that part i buy when i'm with you early on the momentum bullshit but i'm not saying anything groundbreaking here that younger players or players. That don't have a lot of experience generally gonna play. Maybe better at home than they are on the road especially in in in a final setting. Sorry sort of jumping. I mean you know. I do believe in the hot hand theory though but but again that to me. Is that feeling because you see a guy who's like feeling hot and he's like chasing the ball. Teams are trying to get him the boggs just like just. Just give him the ball. He's feeling to russia. And so that can happen within a game from one game to you. Don't think you don't think it travels once you go to bed. That's right that's right. Go to sleep on your bed. Comfortable sleep find out tonight. Oh yes well let me ask let me ask. Do you believe in homecourt advantage. Do you believe it. Yeah yeah that'd be. That's what comes out to because mckell bridges was confident on the road. He still had confidence the ability that he was going to score. He was three of seven in game. Four it was just a little bit quiet. He didn't get a lot of shots. The sons didn't get a lot of shots and devon booker was basically taken all them because he was absolutely scorching. Came johnson came off the bench and look like he was icing everybody every time he shot the ball but it just came down to those last few minutes in. Cpi wasn't really the leader that he's gotta be and he has played way better at home in this series the first two games versus the last two games and you kind of just see it. I mean there's there's only a few special guys who can carry a team for a whole fricken series you saw yanni slowed down a little bit and try and get everybody involved in game. Four chris great to start the series took a little step back to you. Took a big step back to holiday. Went on them for a good chunk of the game right because for the first game we were like. Why is drew holding on on them all the time right. That's been the big change from but in the bucks. Okay still play well. He had twenty three point game in game two. And it's and these games three and four. So yeah he's the good guys have bad games and they bounce right back. Middleton has been slow and obviously he hit that ferris wheel and hit the top of it in game four. So it's up to me. It's up to chris. Paul and i and i think it really does have a trickle down effect to yeah to his teammates into bridges and to to everybody and you know the the bucks have figured out the rotation. I think that's kind of one thing. One part of their momentum is that they know who they are after the first game and the second game bryn fours was in the rotation. Now we know who our guys are c- later to bring back onto the sun's kinda had to go through a little bit of that you get going out. And then they had the injury to tori crag and and they should know who they are now but yes. Ep can't fall anymore. you know. We can't give the ball away. But i don't know i have some confidence in them bouncing back because yeah momentum is a bunch of shit. I mean. it really really doesn't matter when the game starts it doesn't it really doesn't fascinated to see where chris middleton falls on the ferris wheel tonight. Tk like this is a real test to our fair sweetheart. Middleton proposal that we've thrown out to the world like in theory it should be. It shouldn't be brutal shouldn't be brutal but it shouldn't be of course at the apex. The forty point game so we should have a good. Chris middleton game if the ferris wheel is to be believed. Yeah i've been thinking about my experiences on a ferris wheel of my life and clearly the top. It's the best you get that beautiful view and man. What an incredible view was during game for that cream city skyline just boston but also you know you have some fun on the downward slope of a ferris wheel growing up in my family we call it the tutelage. Drop when you feel it in your stomach some of your stomach some your genitals if you will just that weird tingle field. Lena at feels weird but it feels good now. Maybe we'll get a weird. But good chris middle come game where he struggles for three quarters and has twenty in the third or something along those lines. This will really drive home. Exactly how much. The ferris wheel is that crew true analogy. I can't wait. i can't wait trae. let me jump. You talked about the cream city view. One thing that we were doing yesterday on the on the happy hour was a lot of geo guests. Oh nice well. We made it to the championship round. Once we missed and the other person missed and we had to go into. Ot lost it in ot. I would say our percentage we were may probably under ten percent on accuracy last night. Not our finest before. What was your best poll though if somebody really come through a clutch guests at one point or was it that bad i mean. It was just farmland after far. We can't give them putting a lot of meadows mexico twice. I think I think that was it so we got one where had some mexican riding on a wall like a for sale sign. I think that sort of was central south america spanish. Yeah but there was a couple where sh matheny nothing. That was good leaving. All mr google drive in. Jesus who's ever going to be zooming in on this joint comments on the youtube stream earlier today and people are just crushing me. They're like you operate. Google maps like grandpa like clicking on the arrows. You just got a double tap on the road you. That's what i wanted to say. I didn't i didn't know that or else set it yesterday. Like you can just double click anywhere okay. No we're not enough in the game to know the ins and outs we did learn about Skeets there's a fifty fifty option when you're getting down to it you're like i don't know what this is going to be. You hit the fifty fifty they give you two flags but that means now we got to study on flag actually wait. I know flags way more than i know probably geography so would have been some help. You will be okay. That'll be good the next time. We go in because i'm bad at flags and also bad at geography. I think maybe we got one fifty fifty right but pretty much how. I can't wait. Wait for the next happy hour slash game. I was sad to miss. Let's let's get to the player puppets we do this with every game. We made someone a lot of money in game for. What was his name shane. I believe it was. It was blake fifty dollars eight seven fifty because he basically took all our crazy player. Puppets for game. Four and he put him into a parlay and bone. He hit it big so game. Five player prop bets. I'm surely has who's going to score the first bucket wrong. But what else do you got. Well blake's in the stream team right now. What we maybe let blake pink. Probably has the basketball minds here for game. Four i'm taking the same approach. I didn't game for their where. I didn't wanna preplanned. I'm just going to scroll through. And see what i l- i see what i likes so we go to phoenix i. It's going to be hard. I think you andre eight and gets that winning tips. I think we get a suns bucket. I wo- i don't think the sons of and they want to tip at all. So far i feel like brooks want everyone tasks. I thought you'd be able to back me up on that. Now i think so. I think they have. But anyway. I can not and look. I think devon booker is clearly going to target. I get that i but i think the milwaukee bucks win this game and this is paying fifteen dollars if you get a devon booker. First basket bought the bucks. Go on to win it so period. Not too bad at all i really do. I think the bucks figured. I realize what they can do to win this game but they got the momentum right. Yeah exactly exactly but devin book. He's the momentum as the forty two points and look book. He's been trying to channel a lot of kobe. Bryant references in his post-game chats here. I think he wants to try to get out and make a statement from the start. He hit the first basket of loss game. I think one of the other games too so I think he's a safe bet. But like i give me the box. The win this at fifteen bucks. I think that's a pretty nice little return. Who actually yeah. Maybe i should go heavy on that. So i can afford to be fine this week. Booker first basket. You gotta eat in the tip first basket and but bucks winnie at the money. Line there all right task go to the next player prop bet for game five. What do you like well. I'm looking at blake's comment here in. The street team thinks that chris paul is going for thirty and ten. Wow whoa whoa. The line is twenty nine and a half points and rebounds combined so or points and assists. So you're good. You're here sailing man. I mean i was talking about chris paul to beginning. They're wondering what he's going to do. I think it's a. It's a safe bet to go with the crystal over on his props but in even safer bet to go with the son's first half line that he's doing it again they're five and after a loss first half line and it's two and a half escape so jump on it sons minus two and a half son's favorite overall. I assume right in game five four something like that would give okay so tasks sticking with what worked in game. Four that first half sons cover. What about you. Trey got a player. Puppet all right. Chris middleton's over under points. Tonight is twenty four and a half. that's perfect. that's perfect. He's had twenty five or more in nine of his twenty one playoff games. I'm going over. I still think it's enjoyable when you're coming down from the peak so give me an over on that but my favorite lines on this where the over unders for the role players who have their turnovers set at zero point five over under basically. Do you think this guy's going to have a turnover tonight. And there's a lot of them because obviously there's a lot of role players you know whose job is basically catch the ball and shoot a three pointer for the most part. So i'll hit you with a role player telling me there's a turnover. Tonight skied jay crowder. Yes so yes for sure. Yeah you mentioned the or something. Okay so yes over. Jae crowder mikhail. Bridges lee yes. You'll have all right okay. Task brook lopez. Nope nope while. You're no turnovers skeets. pj tucker This is okay over. Bobby portis legally. He's on the road. We're in milwaukee out. Nobody's on the road while he's a little bit hot bubby code bob. How say the hot bobby over tonight. We got four more. Let's get them through quick. Tassie pat coniston bull. Yeah he's good for one. Good for awhile skates ken johnson. I mean at some point. We gotta say somebody's not gonna get one. So no for cam johnson under there you go beyond guy good call i think on gallons lee campaign all hey yes yes ball handler. That's why over on that. One and task last one. Tory craig tori see. Doesn't handle it enough. Yeah low turnover guy so there you go throw these. What nine names. All implore lay for over under zero point. Five turnovers crowder over bridges over tucker over portis overconfident over pain over under on lopez johnson and craig. What does that when you know idea. But good luck to all the turnovers. All of that being just thrown at you got to throw up. That's crazy that's real sicko. Betty great there guy have one turnover. Euro-point point five. Just sticking with insane bets here. I got an email because space jam. New legacy. I think premiers maybe tonight or at least in theaters. And i think you can watch it online. We will be doing a film session of course for the new space jam in the coming weeks or so but i got an email with actual bets. Leo love this one for you. Who's going to score first. Granny minus one fifty or tweedy plus one ten real things. You could actually put a little. Which is insane because people of course if they yeah. I can't remember if tweety got a bucket or not. And i won a true. I don't know he's got that advantage. He's got that advantage because he can be up so high. Get a tip in you. Know put back. They say tweet. I say money because he was one ten. And this one's for you task who scores. I the exact same line minus one twenty speedy gonzales or the tasmanian devil. Do back to that. Yeah yeah yeah no doubt no doubt. I'm going with tassie. He's got it. I see these lines and it's it's nuts it's going on. I don't know and there's a bet on michael jordan's appearance as well appears in the in the movie or not yes plus nine hundred so that means he's not going to be showing by assume us number probably months ago months ago. We're on this show saying. Oh yeah yeah you can also bet on what will happen. I in space jam. A lebron rundown block chase down block or he gets cold for a charge charge. Gimme a charm. Wow you'd think it'd be called for a charge okay. yeah. I think it's going to be well. I just think they would save a chase down block a very last kind of thing that happens in the big game right just like it was in real life. They're going to say that for a clutch moment whereas a charge is going to be controversial. And maybe gonna throw something in the way of the tune squad. He'll send the guy. I think like off into just like another dimension code for the job and then lebron was. It was a flop. It was a flop and maybe the guy was loving but just be one of those super exaggerated things so yeah that's going to happen early when lebron's down lock when he comes back. Yeah i got one more insane one. You can bet on what will happen. I in space jam in new legacy. Kyrie irving gets injured. chris. Paul wears glasses or draymond. Green talks trash. How weird that bet. Crisp whole wears glasses. Hell well i guess swift. Poll there's gonna be a reference to it. There's no way. Probably never no way chris in glasses glasses. I'm with you all right all right.

All right back with the no dumps drop podcasts. Let's get into the uptown report. It's the up down on port. Let's see those thumbs in the stream team up or down and of course down in the youtube comments as well or tweet at us at no dunk. I one miami is john hollinger's favourite landing spot for the grote. The greatest rapper. Of all. Time kyle lowry in an article with eric. Corinne on the athletic yesterday. Hollander a sign and trade of andrea dolla. Casey paula and precious a chula for lowry would extend the heat's cap room and the raptors walk away with two young frontcourt players tassie. Upper down on hollinger's kyle lowry to the miami heat sort of trade proposal at good time reading this article. I am up on the side of things for sure. I think precious chula is starting to make his name known. I do believe in him and the fact that they do get a couple of young parts for kyle lowry. Who is you know this. This is the absolute time you have to trade him. I don't think you wait another year. I think that would be a pretty good return for. Kyle lowry do it. It's the first you know sort of forward-looking trade for for messiahs and the raptors. You gotta trade kyle lowry. I think that's a good return when all of a sudden done pretty solid for the heat i call our would definitely help. I would think that they would try and go bigger. We talked about the bradley beal possibility last week. I i like that option a little bit more to try and dig for that. But yeah kyle. Lowry obviously would be a great great get. I think it's It's time for the raptors to move on and not just buying the precious uber stock as he blocked. Kevin durant for team nigeria. I've i always thought that he'd be he'd be great. The raptors need a big and he's sort of a a perfect modern day defensive guy to get everywhere and the heat just. I just think they may be a little bit more than kyle lowry away from winning a championship right now. I think they should try and aim higher but they gotta aim so it makes sense from johnny holly to be driving this one. What do you think clearly. Yeah i think if you're the raptors if you can get those two young plays for a guy who's basically going anyway. Why not you know andrea go dolla. You can probably move him on as well if he doesn't wanna go out even want to go. Do you wanna go to memphis. I mean the raptors. Well i mean right now. Are they in a better position than memphis probably So maybe dolls. Like i'm not. I'm not going there so you're going to have to move me on which wouldn't be bad. If you're still massage. You could trade him to get something else potentially in wouldn't be much though. But but yeah. I mean if you if you can get those two young place i agree. I think he's got some talent. He's got some potential for a guy who called larry's almost certainly not going to be a raptor anyway. One do that but not sure if miami will do that really. I'm not sure if they'd give up those two young plays for call who's good and he certainly we now but they've got at you're ready and they would have to move on from. He might guess because he's kind of their old man point guard and then what are they doing with taller hero. Does he become the starting point guard next season. I mean didn't have a great end to the season. But certainly i think he's the future. What do you think. I like the idea of kyle lowry in jimmy. Butler plan together in a backward. I'll tell you that much am lake tasks. Lear say if lower is going to be leaving any ways if you can get anything for him. I think that's good especially considering last year. The raptors did not get a ton from their center position. Baynes boucher was good. But i don't necessarily know that that's your starting five in the nba. Maybe precious the chew. It could be some time in the future. Obviously he's a defender as well. Which is something. the raptors value. Just feels like a big off season for toronto. Right now right. It's like we got the lowery as a free agent. Maybe it'll be a sign and trade. You're seeing them. Show up trade rumors left and right once again hitting fourth pick really changed things for them. It's like you can go on a whole bunch of different ways here especially with a guy off the books and siaka having had success in the nba. And being on you know. I mean he's on a big contract but there's a lot of big contracts out there and this is a guy that has proven already in his career so definitely feels like we're going to be seeing quite a different raptors team starting next season. Yeah within the same article. Korean and hollinger sort of like debated tasks whether it meant having the fourth pick in the draft and probably jalen suggs. Let's say he falls to them there. That's the spot. He's going in most mock drafts. Does that automatically mean if you took sug stat. Lowry is gone. Crane says no. Why does it have to mean that. It doesn't where most people hollander included. Say well yeah you probably are now leaning into your future and you've got your young backward songs it would be vanfleet and you've still got og siaka and you're trying to get some young big guys like an chula that's hollinger's thinking but what do you think if the raptors like do you think lowery's their next season i guess what i'm getting at especially now having a very high draft pick which very likely going to be a pretty young talented guard. No i think the last half of the season show that they're ready to move on. They're ready to get a little bit worse to try and get a draft pick. They they weren't playing for two wins down in tampa and they they wanted to move him at the trade deadline if we were talking about saying goodbye to kyle at the trade deadline and it felt like it was going to happen and this is this is the time to do. It just doesn't fit the raptors. They underperformed last year. But i they had their one shot and it didn't work out. And now if you trade. Carl you're still a very good team with with pascal. And frederick fleet as your go-to and og and then whatever you bill beyond that but pasco would be the oldest of the core guys at twenty seven and be a solid solid squad but it doesn't seem to fit it's not. It's not a championship winning team. Unless he doesn't wanna leave which doesn't seem to be the case he's he seemed like he was saying goodbye during those press coffee task. You look at the camera or any wave goodbye to you and me specifically and my goodness he was still there. It was crazy all right well. Let's hear from people in the stream team. Like i said if you like hollinger's proposal there from both sides as it makes sense to the heat cap room reasons obviously getting lowered a pair with butler like tk said that's pretty damn good and then of course from the raptor side. Is that enough or you. Just happy with anything in a sign and trade type deal with lowery removing. Let's hear from all of y'all all right next one guys. Jd you can show these. Take us through the intro. We've got luca. Dodge candace parker and kevin durant there among the star players who will be featured on the next nba two k. Video game release in celebration of the upcoming seventy fifth season got legends kareem abdul jabbar and dirk nowitzki. They're also gracing the cover of the nba. Seventy fifth anniversary edition along with kabc at their parker will become the first wnba player to grace the cover of nba two k. In the game. Stop exclusive edition but okay. That's the thing apparently but trae upper down just collectively here on all of these covers all of these new nba two k. Athletes on them. What do you think. I only got two thumbs skates that. I would give a thumbs up. All of these covers the luka one is cool the legend one is also cool by. We'll say including kevin durant a current player bit of a question mark for me and then of course i can't as parker get in to cover in chicago sky jersey illinois. You know. I gotta love that one. First appearance on a major sports video game cover for a woman. that's awesome. That's really cool. I don't know of candace. Parker is the goat and the wnba. I don't think she's considered as such that. She is for me no doubt about having followed her literally since high school up until now coming back home and playing in chicago very cool very cool to see on the cover but apparently i gotta get a playstation five and then i got to go to stop to get that particular. Is that what you're telling you. That's the part that's like. Oh disappointing because you see the headlines. Or i did lease first. Wnba star to be on the two k. Cover kansas park. Like wow. that's awesome. And then you like then you learn. Oh hold up. There's like feels like five different covers many cow and there's only one you can get it. This particular place like takes a shine a little bit. I love to see it anyway. But what do you think lee with. All of these artwork is really cool. I mean i don't play these games but they actually looks really neat. What do you say well if you can actually bring up the one with the three of them on their kareem can candies. Yeah it looks awesome. But that's not. What i think about with kevin durant has. He's i sort of move skyhook the dirk one legged with it's more like a jump show. I honestly what i i saw it. I thought that was shack because the how the poll has for sure shackling dunker at the plate. Yeah so that's the only little part of it. That i thought was because i thought maybe it was like the it or not the silhouettes but i thought dirk kareem katie. Then it was shock and then it would be someone else then hang on. That's cream that's I see oh that's okay. that's kevin durant throwing dump. But of course they had a great tweet as well when he said donahue these other two guys are but thanks for putting me on the cover of tasks. What do you add to this. Yeah i saw dirk. His acceptance video look and slim got a deeper than li shown. Office his chest last night. So i mean you could see sternum but looking slim looking great yeah i. I'm very excited for all these players. Yeah especially can spark of being the first woman on there and she was pumped too. She was sharing the crap out of it. On social media everybody congratulating her and She had a great all star game as well. That's one to three point contest and honored allie. Quigley talking right. Yeah every time. Yes you celebrating. Allie quigley yeah honor to be sitting in the the chair just down from her in the makeup. I'll a few times at turner sports. So she's about as us great and could see around the all right our next one here. We have our bradley beal update and it sucks. Bill's going to miss the olympics. After being placed into health and safety protocols and the us men's basketball team said it will replace them on this roster at a later date. Jeremy grant also placed into protocol at a caution tonight's exhibition game versus the australian team. That's been canceled wild shit going on right now. Tk right here in in in our own version of our own stream. Here we're making the show the tributary. You just shared a woes tweet. And after spending ten days this woes tweeting this after spending ten days in las vegas preparing for the olympics. Cleveland's kevin love is withdrawing from team. Usa and won't travel to tokyo now. He's returning from a right calf injury. And that's what kept him at a part of the nbc's. I don't know if that's what the reason is. He's pulling out of here but this is like breaking news here so my god. There's a lot to unpack when it comes to be eal and his replacement. I saw that richard jefferson and kendrick perkins said. They would like to see team. Usa reach out to young wolves. Shooting guard anthony edwards as a potential like bill replacement. But now we've got loved to also replace again. This is like falling apart here but lead the beal part. Okay do you like that idea from rj and park of maybe replacing a beal. Width anthony edwards. What do you say to that up or down on that idea. Well going up on that. Because i think jerry colangelo. His original idea with redeem team was get guys who were younger so they can get some experience playing in these international tournaments together because that could help team usa. I think that's one of the biggest problems. I have is lack of continuity and chemistry. So you get a guy who's only had one season of experience in the nba and if he can play in the olympics and then he can play in a world cup and then another olympics before these guys get to daylight twenties where they do tend to need a little bit more rest and recovery and have a few more miles on the in their leg. So i think that's the rod idea if you can get him. He looks like he's he had a great season anthony edwards. He looks like he could be a good player in the international game and good opportunity for him to get some experience while he's not expected to obviously carry the team but he could be that sort of goi in you know five or six years time if if you continue sort of where. He started off his nba career. This season with the wolves tass with this bill idea anthony edwards. You like it or you think it should be somebody else. I do not think they should get anthony. Edwards was also limping around at the select camp a few weeks ago. He seemed to get injured. So i don't know if he's entirely healthy and that just leads me to think that. Why would you mess with the chemistry anymore the australia. Usa game is canceled tonight. So there's less continuity going to be had by these guys. I don't think he bring in antibody a week before when both beal and kevin love are going to be leaving the team. The guys who brought in as call ups to play these exhibition games. Cdc bay i think would be fine in bill. Spot in garland kelvin johnson. As well those sort of those. Those guys will take a backseat guys. It'll be just sort of a role where they are the grinder type guys as as the youthful dudes. They've been there they've played. I don't think you try and screw with this chemistry when you've got other guys coming after the final stew with devon booker. Chris middleton andrew holiday. So i think you need more guys that are just going to dish it to the other dudes and take a step back so the young guys incident bay who is also had a great first year and set some rookie marks burying threes. Play off the other guys who can handle the ball plenty and and then and then go from there. I don't think you bring in a newbies to this one okay. So you're saying role with those guys that were like stepping in from the select team in place of the finals. Guys that are eventually going to show up and just go with one or two of them. It sounds like you're saying now that we have two spots to fill up guys right now. They have now down to ten guys. Bills out loves out. German grants in protocol. Hopefully he can still play. But now we're nine and we're missing three guys that are in the finals so there are literally at six guys. Probably i think. Actually tonight's game was cancelled. Maybe more even from the australian side of things as a healthy safety protocol. But anyway it's wild but trae the bill anthony edwards part. What do you agree more with with lear tasks on this one because they're split on more so with tass here. I don't think edwards is the type of player team. Usa needs to add because they've got a lot of ball handlers. Who want to go out there and score. Every single time i liked it gets downhill plays at the rim. That's great you know with beal. Going out with kevin love leaving the team. This is an opportunity for team. Usa to grab a ball mover that they need in a big guy. Plays defense that they need. And that's what we've seen through the first few exhibition games. If i taken somebody from this past draft. Because i do like the idea of bringing in young guys and getting them experience with the national team i think would go tires. Halliburton as the guard to replace bradley beal. He's a great passer. He's kind of fill in the gap sort of role player where he can catch and shoot hit. Three pointers keeps the ball moving. He doesn't need a ton of shots he can penetrate. he's got some size. He plays defense lamelo as another choice. But i think he's a little bit too notable just in the same way the anthony edwards is. Those guys are gonna probably wanna go in and handle the ball. Since they're used to handling the ball. I would love to see. Halliburton is the guy who just connects the pieces. All around the perimeter jerry in the stream team says any chance that any of the guys still playing in the finals. Booker middleton drew holiday. That baco sure. I guess absolutely positive first off. Who knows if one of those guys were to get injured heaven forbid and one of these final games but you also imagine they have some sort of like deal with gerry clan team. Usa like they've given their word like yeah. If we're on this team you want us then. We'll jump on that private jet and be there in tokyo for the start of the olympic so. I think it's unlikely that they do. But yeah i guess anything's it's possible you olympics. Don't even happen at this point because it's so wild in tokyo but we will see show to the stream team for the summed up and down all right one more break. We have tweeted tonight and rapid fire fun. So don't go anywhere. Yeah so guys. Last night Lincoln made dinner. Maybe it was rib eye steaks twice. Baked potatoes maple bourbon carrots. Excuse was awesome.

Baranova it's time for tweet of the night tweet over now. Well tweet tweet of the night cubs from atlanta hawks star trae young who voiced his displeasure with not being selected for the basketball team. Not via his words in a tweet he let this isaiah. Thomas video about the one thousand nine hundred ninety two dreamed speak for itself irritates. I don't know what went into that process. I've met the criteria to be selected entree. I didn't have to say it yourself. You let i say is is obviously not to ninety to dream. Team trio wanted to be part of usa basketball especially with all these injuries happening. I did say last week that if there if there was time to get a guy activated you need somebody who's played recently in trae young had just played the conference finals so it does sort of make sense to have him out there but when we're down to like seven days here So it's like these guys won't have a camp at all when game start real game start next weekend so trey trey would kind of be one of my picks to to to jump in there and just fire away but i do like that sort of the ball. Movers you need some of those instead of the star guys. But i like a tray win about it. It's pretty funny. At least he at least he's planted his his flag for the next time around. I guess get back. Well i mean he did tweet this before the kevin love news right. I mean i know there was a big one small and we do think team. Usa needs another bigger to unlikely it would be a guy like trade. But maybe it's possible. Maybe it's still in play that he ultimately selected for this team but we'll see here as the stream team has mentioned lloyd. Pierce is an assistant coach for team. Usa and obviously did not end well for loyd pearson trae young here in atlanta. I wonder if there's some sort of some sort of beef there that may be keeping trae young off the team because he seems like a guy that would be a perfect sort of invite especially considering the popovich said. We need somebody who is in playing shape. At least. The hawks were recently playing right. And i mean the team is a little short on playmakers to. I know we think of trae young. We think thirty point game trae young but he's also like one of the best passers in the league so set up guys also make sense. Yeah that's on. Thought about the loyd pierce showed it to the team. That won all right. Let's end this fantastic friday. Podcast the drop with some rapid. Fire fun tassie. Us the questions this week. What do you got for us scottie. Pippen is teaming with airbnb to make his longtime chicago house available for three nights during the olympics stranger over asking us his accustomed basketball court his movie theater and his pool for an outdoor tv insures. They won't miss a moment of the olympic games and it costs us ninety two dollars a night. A little throwback to the olympics when dream team won in barcelona. Which celebrity's house would you want to stay in. And what would you be sure to do while you were there skeets. Well first of. I don't believe for a second and telling ninety dollars to stay at scottie. Pippen's house i mean it's utah. He's i mean this is scott. He's desperate for money and he just needs seven hundred dollars. He's doing this for publicity to get his name out there. Yeah i get that part so. I'm just. I'm skeptical. That i guess i'm skeptical. It's actually going to be allowed to anyone for ninety two dollars a night. This is a smooth move to get the headlines and to get a question here on rapid fire. So i'll start task. Multi level marketing. Yeah i like it. I like it. We'll say it's ninety two dollars to get this read on a podcast and that will make the prices go. It's going to be one hundred ninety two dollars by the time report on. Yeah exactly easily. But what celebrity's house. What i want to stay in. What would i do their. i guess. Sort of similar to a pippen situation. I'm gonna go at drake's mansion in toronto one obviously massive celebrity. We've seen parts of his house before and music videos. It looks like an insane place. it's in toronto. Which means okay. I'm back home. I can see friends and that. I'm playing hoops at his custom. Indoor court. I don't know if you guys have ever seen this. I fell down a rabbit hole yesterday watching videos of them building his basketball court in his mansion. It's called the the sanctuary. It's called and i mean it's like it's it's incredible li like it's unbelievable. It's like an arena. Basically scoreboards custom oviedo. And all that so yeah. I'm playing hoops. Like i've always wanted to play. Always wanted to like like scotty. Pippin this deal. I would love to to lie down in a bed and see the court right there in the middle of the romantic. Yeah yes yes Yeah all right. So i'm going to drake's mansion for sure. What do you got tray. I want to go to bobby. Flays house what kind of house he's got. But i would one hundred percent challenge him to grill off he would destroy. The guy never loses. Veep bobby flay. He's also grow master. But then i would also challenge him to a dance off because bobby flay loves to get busy on the dance. Let's see jd. Let's see this man going crazy. Dancing player no bore. Us is just too good bobby getting busy on the dance for. I think i can take down. But he's got some moves he does and you know what When when i grabbed that clip for you I think he actually dances better. Slow have look at this. Okay okay. Moves are just better batter. Bobby flay schalken screwed does have never guessed. Plays fluidity gregor morrison. Sorry caught me off. Guard guard here calling him another hot and bobby you know. Some hot moves heated up on the dancefloor. Yeah people are calling me out. I'm not going to his house because this is a joke answer. I do really want to go to guidance. I gotta take down. Bobby i four guy Level in a video game that boss before you can get to the final boss slow. I like the slow cooker though. That's slow it down. Baby low heat bobby dancefloor by the way i know. It's not a big gansler but like room for anybody else. Get their moves off these just gobbling up that space. Like a nice cook. Chicken just did on the bird up halfway celebrity there. Yeah so i two. I'm going north of the border. I'm gonna canada toronto. Just as added toronto. Thornhill i i. We all got a little taste of this man's mansion back in the day. Joe real house party insider russell meters house. You know. that's russell. Peters has moved bernie tickets on a little bit of it tour. I wanna go see though the full thing now.

It's the goon squad that lebron must defeat the stars and it's a lot easier to remember the names of the goon squad. 'cause they're more closely linked to the people who play them like the brow. Anthony davis wet fire. That's klay thompson because he's getting it wet. It's it's cronos. Time for time damian lillard dame time white mamba his diana's rossi and arachne ika is neka of womb of iraq. Iraq niece spider. She's a spider. Okay yeah the greeks invented everywhere all right.

That's like wayne's world isn't it with all the promos and their space jam to is just like wayne's world to know trae what would your space jam character navy be. i'm gonna be twinkle toes giant guide but my weakness these tiny tiny feet down at the bottom. Shirley it'll come into play sometime late in the game. I was debating between twinkle toes and tiny toes. But if i'm gonna have to be oughta be twinkled tells if you're taking bobby give me the whole lot. I actually just got another e mail. It says you can bet on who has smaller feet in the new space jam avenue tweety take the underdogs. Yeah i can see a little speedy gonzales. you know. they're just they're just in place like a wheel. They're flying around. Yeah can't even see the feet they're so small. Jd your space jam character. Nick yeah i had difficulty with this as well and then i realized I'm just gonna go with jason because since the beginning of my life People have compared me to jason. The the serial killer friday the thirteenth. Two and onward. So i'm just gonna go with jason. Is that under the umbrella. Do they own the rights to that. That's a good question shows great. That would be awesome bathroom cheese. Thank you sky really likes jason all right very good very last one here west on cell. Junior is in the running to be the next head coach of the washington wizards when we discussed this potential hiring on thursday show. Skeet said whenever he hears. Wes unseld juniors name. He thinks of racing legend. Al unser jr. not nba legend west on sell. Not kevin love. Who wes unseld. God's not even al unser senior but al unser jr. what's one association you and only you make skeet so i mean your aunt. My answer's basically. They're in the question. But i'll also say it's tough for me not to think of the armadillo cowboy in my head anytime joe johnson comes up. It's the weirdest nickname ever. It's somehow on basketball reference. Even though i just came up with it over a decade ago there was a weird reason. I won't even go into it. It's so boring. But anytime i see. Cool joe johnson. I think of the armadillo cowboy and i it brings me great joy to know it's on his basketball reference page and their best be well. I don't know how many people are pulling up. Joe johnson basketball reference page nowadays. But if you do there's got to be a lot of confused people i assume. So that's a. that's a correlation. A link an association that i always make best good one trae armadillo cowboy would also be a pretty good space. Gee that's the money yosemite sam kind of hat armadillo cowboy not bad scales everywhere for me anytime. Somebody says nice whatever. I shot nice house. Nice car half to think of that song by filter. That's why i say. Hey man nice shot the dumb it like people say things are nice all the time. It's like oh nice. Jacket annoy twenty five years at some point. But there's not a lot of songs that have like a common sentence chorus take. Hey man my shop man all right. it's good jd. Deep cut for me just got my license renewed and so you have to go to the dds. Which is the depart georgia department of drivers services. I now whenever. I look at this. I think i know what you say. Do i mean i. I just realized that it's a car the map in georgia. But i always see the dick tracy was gonna say just me. Well i was gonna say common san diego because at the silhouette day. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah it's almost like ufo lake to me a little bit landed in georgia. But yeah i seen a dick tracy. Okay i'm a guy who it's not just me but especially when you see it like this and i just sit in the corner of the website off to the point where i five years that i've lived here i was like. Why do they have like an incognito private detective devious logo but it's not at all it's just A car on the method weird though you're right it's strange anyway. Amazing it looks like a yes.

Please tell me that's on videotape. I never been appier bob. Cute welcome to ufc unfiltered matinee. Busy show we have claudio silva coming on in a little bit and michael gye white jane. I think it's gye. We can ask him. I can't wait you. don't he was yes you know. He was in the dark night. I did not know that. And the out this about this enough from the clown anyway. All yes exactly the gangster. Yes he was a fucking now that we we should touch on the fact that jake. Paul tyron woodley fight. Because we both knowing like tyron. And i'm going to say one thing. This is why i don't watch. Boxing anymore has nothing to do with the awful performance by tire and it was a very bad performance. I'm so i. I i love the guy but i think he's a much better fighter than that but the judging i thought that jake paul clearly won the fight and i'm not a jake paul fair i love tyrant but i thought in fairness it's far two guys fighting. Jake paul won the fight for some fucking judge to score that. That could be a split decision. Is everything i hate about boxing. It's a terribly judge sport. Just absolutely awful. Yeah the the judge is always something to talk about but it's abysmal. My have with the is talked about it with very long ago earlier and longo said it the best. You know. the guy's not hurt you long those i. I didn't realize how big paul was. And i agree though i agree tiring. The guy's not even hurt you. We know what you're doing is not hurt you you fucking walking down and you walk down like he was doing at times and then saying i don't know he does what he's always done in explorer here air but i think he had the ability tyrant evenly shows when he got hit the ability to walk him down and just take a shit autumn literally. Just beat him up. That's what i feel. But even feel that until maybe he showed glimpses of it right and it's it doesn't it's not the same thing at all but it's almost like the fight verse leon lee edwards right now one that fight according to me but a lot of people to talk about is that shot that he landed on him when he was made them do a little. Get a little shaky legs. So we had him on the ice skates so just got will really talking about. Is that picture of a tyrant putting j. paul onto the ropes. So i mean i picture is sterile because you see take all little birds of opposite and then you see background. You see like his relatives. A little kid looks up to all looking like no so. I don't know. China had the ability if he was more a little more active in there just yet the ability just to beat them up. I feel it was a very. I thought it was really bad. Dude thought the tyrant was doing these little short short faints like he and then when he does have him hurt when tyrant did have hurt. He did this thing where he's kind of Being fancy with his glove a circle. I'm like what do you do it like the wind up punch that you do when you're about to kick the ship go in there. I don't know what are you doing like. I found that to be so frustrating. I'm like he wasn't trying to win Or he wasn't able to do. I absolutely thought that was a very very bad performance. And tyrants a better fighter than that he's got a crazy powerful hands. It was such a winnable fight. I feel like such mean to the point where it was. It was fun because it kept you guessing. But he could've just. I feel he could have just stayed in his face. Should add them. I don't know what was going on there. But i'll listen. You don't know what really gets me going. is it. Underdog pulling off gerald mercia. Yeah we loved. Gerald aren't the show. I thought we have gerald on today. I just want making some goddamn calls. Hey booker's booker's. I'm telling the book of these show. You'll see filtered amen. I don't mind reach out to some people i want to. I want to give me. Some numbers are do to instagram. Or whatever because people. I wanna fucking talk to jimmy. It is monday. It's possible to travel home today. It's just all good. We'll be talking to all of them back to jail mercia. He was the biggest dog on the car. And the way it was starting out. You're like okay. I see why because most kills name mark mark mark mood muradov. Martin was looking first of all accurate powerful faster than gerald on his feet. Landing had gerald in trouble out. This is what i want to talk about. Gerald was very smart weathering storm now. Some guys are too tough for their own good where not gown and all. That doesn't look good. I'm getting back up just to get knocked down again. Guys who've been around guys with a grappling breakout. Brad background specifically jujitsu. They know self-defense wise. You'll get hurt. go to you back now. They gotta get patient. Legs hurt you. If you don't do that and try to fight through trying to get up to fight could be over before begins. You know what. I mean in that instinct. So a of times. It's not the same as of this thing is getting in trouble and doing a shitty guard ball. It's not a dj flocking to his back. That's not what i seen. I seen a guy got a little got short punch. Had to clear his head and he took the time to do it and it it paid off because he weathered the storm in that first round and even ended strongly on the first round with a dominant position with one on again with the power. Have okay looking. So he's keeping his head down he couldn't power out of that. It ended strong. And then i'm telling you he started landing zone shots in that second round. He got that takedown genucel. Beautiful jitsu was on point. Gerald mercer pulled it off. Don't count that dude out man. Don't mount him out. Had a whole. I like guys. I don't like it. But i love the see perseverance. Guys who have a hard time one. Five people like man. maybe this will just be a gatekeeper. Maybe this guy is best as behind them and then he beats the guy that does the fight. Stratacom was on Congrats jody mercer. We're going to go with more fights after but i'll let us look to claudio.

I hope that takes offer you because that sounds like something excellent one. We're done fighting. Also something you know retire on but you're not done yet. When are you coming back. We miss watching you fight. What are you coming by. Well right now. I'm just dealing with some neater in and the men i'm i'm trying to fight in december. I'm just. I'm just hurt out my knee injury.

Ufc and i will come back to back losses. So i've been there before. I know what it's like to lose a couple in a row. Are you like chomping at the bit to get back in there and say look man i gotta get the monkey off my back. I'm better than this. You was the great got really good guys obviously. Yeah but how we feel right now about wanting to get back in there. And all the best fighters they lost once in their lives and the to be honest. Like it's a weird feeling I was feeling very bad after my last last fights. No i train. Lord's own. My man i give i give my heart. My soul and blood did training. I don't believe in just about. I want to win. I truly believe that's a before once you win a fight you most wants to prepare you know as the maximum because anybody who wants to leave but nobody wants to sacrifice. Nobody wants to train hired. Nobody wants to be in there. And most people that i know that wants to be the comfort zone and they don't want to get out of their comfort zone. They don't want to train ran. They're feeling tired when they're like when you go to the gym and you just get beaten up in. Oh so bro. Lights in oh was a horrible feeling because i to know. I've i've been training in this. The only thing. I do when i have a camp. I don't i don't care i don't give a fuck what's happening. The roads in. Oh i tell my stem at least managed basilan told me. Just talk about a Beings and don't come with any negatives sober checks because i'm not going to talk to you by and if i have to brought to do it and that's my mentality. It comes to prepare for fights and the man shoot happens in. Oh man. I'm not gonna take i'm a i'm a kind of guy that's always take responsibility now. I'm not gonna say. I was my fault folds. That was the. I didn't drink water enough notes. I did my best. I train in a lot of but my open and he just beat me up. And also what can i do. What was his nights.

So i was able to buy more than four hundred Food baskets over people to help for people in need in his arms and was in a very productive time. Resume a great time. Yeah and you talked about matt. I know touched on the negativity which is really if something gets in your head. Do you have the kind of mine where it's kinda hard for you to shake it out like if somebody brings you something negative while you're training. Is it hard for you to let it go. Do you just kind of let it circling your head a little bit or easy to get rid of it man. I'm feeding only now ways to jehovah cub.

Or was he the type of guy would only talk to you during manager was so frigging call. It doesn't make sense like i was. I was almost on asshole mode. Because i'm leaving people. Is he gonna leave him alone right. He's the leading movie. So you know. I'm like to myself and he's like. Hey man how you doing. And it's like okay cool but you know he was so down to earth man like i was a. I'm kind of a. I was kind of a closet closet. magician like whenever i work i i go to wherever the magic store there was and i and i come back home and innocent entertain. My kids would like nine right. We go to dinner. And and i'm like you know making say this whatever the same things and we we just kind of found a bond where we were constantly doing these kind of things having fun with that stuff and he was just so down to earth like like zero ego whatsoever. Just just really cool. It hurts me that people think he was wondering does like what do you call it Method actors who got caught up in the in the thing because he like that at all in fact he was just having fun man he was a and plus. He passed away on the next movie. It wasn't that but like he either. This guy's asking like myself and others even day players. How'd you think that was after. Take he would modulate his voice sometimes and one time. Because you know he's right up in my face doing you know why so serious thing and he would play with different voice place and this is one where he signed a lot like tom waits to me. That was real creepy. And i was like yo that shit makes me look at you. Like what planet are you from these. I think so. Yeah and i swear. It seemed like that's the one he was grabbing awhile autumn accent that should cut like that trump. Is this kind of avidly. Tom waits i'm. I'm probably a little older than you but lights. You'll look old. You're ageless i. Listen not to get off the subject. I loved you and spawn irony doing it over with jamie watch any fox in it. Play you grain.

Yeah yeah i do you know i i. I'm grateful to have played. I mean it came up again. Of course i do that. Just outta sheer respect You know it started a lot of the special effects style. And yeah so i i think it could be. You could have been a lot better. I would love to have done the movie like the comic book like really hard really like dark. Yeah so you know. If there's a chance of that happening again. I think you should be common. And the Animated series now. You're magic you do sleight of hand stuff because it's really good magic. I mean have you. Seen penn and teller live. Because they're interesting. Can they kind of deconstructed and still full people right right. Yeah i've loved all that stuff. Yeah i do sleight of hand sometimes a lot of things that are a little sat up that you know In in my kids. Think i just do something on my always kind of have to set it up and then once you get a little bit better you can have your own style. You know right. Yeah yeah are you a good shuffler. Can you do like one hand. Shuffle have my hand eye coordination stinks. I can't do any of it. But i'm fascinated by anyone who can do any kind of magic because i have zero ability to do it. You can't you. can't you. Can even make your awkwardness heart. Which will be brilliant. You know what i'm saying. Maybe as a distraction. Maybe there is amazing distractions and the can you shuffle with one hand order. Don't do cards. I listen cards. Yeah and you know a strange man. doing magic helps me with a direct movies now So you know the idea of how you hit somebody you set the mind up for a you know kind of you misguiding you know or all that type of stuff if you understand how magic works on the mind. You can really affect people on film. You know what i mean you could. It's kind of like a sleight of hand but in some way. So there's a lot stuff i draw. Listen i can talk this. David copperfield stuff all day long. You're a martial artist. I what did you start with with the martial law. Because i. i could've started with you. Just do i knew jab traditional japanese and then they showed up and i got really heavy into kilts. That was that was like my main style for forever. I mean way back in the day when you know tigers showman he was. He was wanting to kill guys as well back in the day. It's great to see him still like doing his thing. But yeah i mean he was like somebody. I looked up to grow up because he was. He was doing job but he was addy his own flavor to. You know very much like us. They produced providers the taisho. Yeah yeah because i mean to everything in life is is quite so bounce right so you know you got to kill over here. You know how to hit hard. You know you know that that that you know that strike with maximum effect but then then you gotta go to the other side and then learn for nets learn. Footwork learn boxing. You know that kind of a thing. And that's what is great that the evolution of mixed martial arts just point to that that's like not only is it your better complete fighter but you'd better. I think human being because you got humble yourself to other arts in other styles and that's that's like a metaphor for humbling yourself to like everything else out. There in the world can be humble in except like knowledge. You know so it only it only benefits you. So yeah i kinda you really dig. How things have come along with. The royal hall came from. I show him. Yes sir shamed me right here. Oh yeah yeah. He's worked with me right. I got bags on the side over here. And where do you live. I live in sherman. Oaks oh yeah and it was a technique we working on. I was working on this thing. Where you know i i have. I'm created a lot of little sneaky techniques. You know i'm in i always quote myself. The luckiest arts in the world. Because i train with like seventeen. I was born with bill. Wallace man like joe louis That was those over my instructors. So i learned a lot of different things. It's up there was one thing that taught araya when how to kinda hide as a spin kick And to kind of your hips up. I would not turn shows because if you turn yourself they you know it's coming but to be able to turn your hips without your shoulder and the kick just comes ban the and so we've worked on that and worked on it worked on inside and then i remember. He was fighting massage. Gig musashi and i was. I was off somewhere. I think it was in sometime of thing. But i i went to a sports bar caught sight and saw him like that looks a lot like what we working on. Same thing you know. i'm the only guy. Hey i'm gonna has then. Riot goes on youtube and you know and thanks me starts talking about. Yeah this is what my job has always showed it. I guess guess. I wasn't wrong. That made me feel really good. That's great man. They're doing brazilian jujitsu. When did you mess around with. Only i've been eddie bravo and Man we i'm a gym rat. I love trade. It's like legends and legends. I came one of my best in the world. Frankie lives superman wait. Wbz soup midway champion world. And so from my boxing. I've trained with him for all his camps. All people you know tommy hearns. All those guys in going down this train of cronk whenever we get down to a fight camp. Whatever i'm you know fixture there training i just i just love the stuff so That's i got my my boxing family that that world. Yes yeah yeah so well you play tyson. You played tyson. What ninety five was great. You're not yet ninety. We shot in ninety four. I think he came out and ninety five problem. I was he happy with the portrayal. Ya actually was. He actually was You know we. We spoke while he was incarcerated And it got kind of a heated discussion. And i thought it was gonna be like i thought we were gonna Gonna go. i didn't know. I was gonna go when he got out. You know he was cool and he. He said he really liked the performance. And he actually did a Vladimir not that long ago and he said he wasn't crazy about the movie but he liked what how performed are portrayed them which. I'm like regret great. You know my my thing is. I'm going to do the best i can. And i'm glad he liked it and has to saw truth in my performance was the heated discussion about the film. What eating film not here discussion about something that A i was pressing him to answer. Certain questions oh he wasn't comfortable bow and you know and you know and it was kinda guys point where it was like i. Don't you know you might be used to people who are. Don't stand up. You know. Whatever i that i didn't care about that stuff and so you know it's kinda you know as a warrior thing as mono mono thing is like okay. You got a problem with that. Because michael playing him right when you all you on the phone so i can't. I can't do a mike tyson impersonation you go. You go back to my voice i use. That is crazy. 'cause like i think he was concerned about. There's a lot of things that that repre- to that. I was privy to that. He didn't want coming out right so i think that was part of The the issues but my thing was i. I was the play this role. And so i own my own. I went to catskills man. I i showed up on the doorstep of where he grew up. and that's I pleaded with the people that he was in. You know in there with i. Look you know. I'm all about the you know. I gotta do this role matter what. I'm only take one side. Please give me your side. You know. I i sat with with kevin rooney and i saw what can rooney store. Yes which live people didn't know what it was. That's kind of tragic story right there in an people didn't know because there's a narrative that you know once might left kevin rooney and all that type of stuff. Everything went down. Mike was helping cabin rooting. kevin rooney was actually apologetic in told me to apologize to mike florio. Because i mean there's a lot of stuff you look back there's really made some missteps. It's funny you're right. I always thought that that when he left rooney and then went to don king. You went down. I didn't realize that he was still helping. Kevin rooney oh man like i mean if you think about it when When mike tyson was going with robin you know all that robinson. He didn't want to interview. If you think back you. You recall that kevin ruin. Did the interview in place of mike tyson. I don't remember it. I don't remember it. Yeah yeah i it's. It's like something that you shouldn't do he. He didn't want to talk about stopping. Then kevin mooney day. And that's one of the things that kevin was really you know really sad about but when we were doing this movie and ninety four kevin rooney was not in a good spot. I mean he. He made a lot of mistakes. That a lot of issues that that that got him where he was renting a little place in catskill might cost about three hundred dollars a month. So there's a story behind that when unim- spinks fight alone in being the main Is managing making ten percent of that purse which was twenty million. You know what i'm saying. So if you start unpacking that story you kinda see a little bit of. The narrative is little Yeah so it's a. It's a you know mike. He was in a rough place You know to me. I always thought this guy was a dude that was always in search of a father figure. That's my in my assessment. And how i played because i was i was looked at mike as like an amazing mimic of Of the people that mentor. If you think about it like when he was young he spoke like an attack. An old italian guy you know he was being like us. The model he was dressing like us. One black young black man wore suspenders in news. Caveats right he's talked in those old sayings those preambles and all those those things right and then leaves around kevin rooney after cuss die. His speech pattern became like kevin rooney right. Then you know. He's around Jim jacobs and who's married and then might gets married. Then he goes to with don king now the n. Words every uh every other word out of my mouth and now he's political like don. Ken goes to prison comes out muslim. Because that's the prevailing things from from president right. You know what i'm saying. And he comes out with two father figures on each shoulder. Mouse eight song and arthur ash. So this guy to me. it's always looked for. I mean he's always had that father figure seeing that was that was missing. And i always stop for him. You know he's somebody who kind of needed that. Somebody's strong and his life you know. Of course that's been my assessment. I think it was a great opportunity to play something like that. Because you know then thing is you've played your plan human nature in that. Do we have a lot of similarities. Because i was fighting when i was young. Beaten up grown man. When i was fifteen and that doesn't you know now this is fighting like in a structured form or. Do you mean like in the street or just these were setup fights everywhere is streets of course joke like you fight pretty much. Full contact I did you know would fight against kate once. I just love to fight. I was my favorite thing in the world to do I just i just really enjoy in science up I did so with that. Was part of a path thousand when i was young but you know but it became a love of the science of it as i got older and and You know and i. And i came into who i was and i you know demons were dealt with and all that type stuff. What do you think it is too. Because i love my tyson. I think most people love tyson. What is it about mike. Did fascinate people so much. Like 'cause you lennox. Lewis is a great fighter. Larry holmes one of the best heavyweights probably the most underrated heavyweight ever. And but people don't have that love for these guys or even wholly feel that they have for tyson. What is this fascination or this like love. People have mike tyson. Okay here. here's my theory. Is this the media. Did a wonderful job at creating who we feel. He was okay I happen to be being that. I had to play. I had to study every ounce of material on it back in the day. I have videotapes. I had the date of airings of everything. There was very specific. You know so. I memorized every because that was all 'cause i had. Hbo behind me right. So they're gonna give me exactly everything all their footage in the days dates and everything else so now what. What's interesting is that the media painted him to be The american dream the kid from the wrong side of the tracks kindly white folks brought into prominence. That was the narrative. Okay his guy. He's got the software he's talk. He's he's innocent Which is partly true. of course. he's super emotional but lie time with that. Emotion comes great violence as well but nobody knew anything about the violent mike thais because that wasn't shown to anyone that was carefully constructed to be this super because like innocent kid. That got rehabilitated. In turn into a champion now. Here's what we think about the how. How interesting this remember when robin givens said mike is a manic depressive. I mean hell. All types of everybody went to strangler because nothing that existed in the media showed any of that right so she seemed like a total bitch to everyone but now fast forward when he gets around When he's now with With don king and now there's the rape allegation that type stuff for that year. All of the footage that the edited out star getting played for everyone. Everybody now you see those the nose bone in the in the brain in your you know children i fuck you you love me. All that stuff started airing. It wasn't there before you know i like. I like all that type stuff. That was not there. Believe me. I was assigned to this job right. And if i saw that stuff i would have had to play that style but that was at a press conference with the f. You till you love me. Jimmy says a lot to me. And i get offended. I know because i finished. I've finished before. Even likely i'm very quick oppressed. Yeah so so. Just the answer. That question right. I believe First impressions is sticks lucci. But here's a guy we root for. He represents us because you never saw any of that. That dark stuff early on if you did. You wouldn't paint them as innocent. You wouldn't say robin you're out of your mind but now later rob you know what we know is. She said that we like we. We all know this. You know what i'm saying. So i think is a masterful thing that the narrative that media painted early on and that is the person that we feel that we knew this innocent guy who represents our innocence and so therefore were always to like hold him up to the highest regard. Because that's how he came into our lives he was. He was the american dream. But it wouldn't work if the media let you know the rest records and everything else early on you. It's funny too. Because i've interviewed mike a good amount of times. I've spent time talking to him. And i think my favorite thing about him is that he talks about his flaws and again i met him years after but i love how he breaks down the things that are wrong with them and his addiction and his Like all the things that make him volatile when he talks about that. I love how he absolutely. Yeah he's really open about that stuff. And i think that's my favorite thing about him is the fact that he describes certain things in addiction. Like he's much smarter guy that they ever gave him credit for being he's insightful to human psyche and the way why people become broken and he really interesting absolutely absolutely know. It's it's like anybody who's that yourself. A facing an open about who they are and truthful especially in this day and age when know. There's so much untrue. You welcome that with open arms. And and that's his oh he continues to be a hero for us now. Anybody who to il. Who's struggling with these things and they put themselves on the front lines. That's your wrote. So mike is absolutely become you know. But you know like. I like saying. Is that the That's a reason why he stays close to our hearts now. I think that for anybody who dares be that that transparent with who they are and you know we glimpsed guy you and most famous people on the plant you know and we've had a inside as life early on each connected to us all and michael. You still watch the you say or kidding me. I'm a nerd. Would i am. I'm supposed to be. I'm going to be hosting a party here. On the twenty fifth. Hit a watch party. Yeah watch part. I'll be you'll be watching. I believe mihrab. Fighting marlin moore is own mariah. He's famer on. Think the headliners is that spoke nas. And i'll be corner corner merav at that at that.

Oh oh for the alto commercial very off revealing the next black dynamite over before you in the movie voiceover man. Hey we're gonna talk. I'm forgetting jobs.

Some cakes can help you with a comoro. Whatever but let me tell you. I'm here with jimmy. I do dana white looking for a fight. But if i can get you other job i could possibly want to do. Is that voice over work. I got a commercial. Yeah alec that's all you need really i- on easiest money rain. You got the personality do that. Don't come around very often. you know what i'm saying. So yeah i. Oh and jim i was. I was watching. The fight will be the last night. Oh yeah in a in a recipe says hey all you saw. I love russell peter. I feel bad for anybody who fox russell. Peters he's used to spar what lennox lewis russell peters is a great guy. He's a huge huge fan. Any many trains. So yeah i. I love russell. I'm happy to hear that he's he's well. You just got into town. And i'm actually going to see him later today movie. I directed I'm doing his eighty agr later today. I had directed at the western. And i got a lot of your your your compadres in there. A radical tours in it cowboy surani Jasper nets in the movie as well. playing cowboys. How else cowboys have that. Are they gonna put fake years on ranch. I guess he's been wrestling in the fucking heard. Somebody's been grounded bringing the bowls in where you know. What a ranger on your the ten gallon hat. Kyw's that real well. And he came a big ass handlebar moustache. You almost don't recognize him. But i mean. He loves good as a cowboy. He's about eight hundred. That's out to get my care. What does this look now. What does this movie called. Where outlaw johnny black. It's it's a it's a final you black dynamite based but it's like if you imagined a black dynamite bake man flop you know that is so cool is it like. It's a western with him taking out like what is dominating the premise of it. Oh man i got student. I mean again kid. You not is a face based blaxploitation urban drama comedy wester. There's got all of that in equal parts. I and when do you think this'll be. We'll probably i'm thinking the top of the year or do we know where it'd be going or we're gonna do i. We got some bigwigs in an industry. That really are down or a lot of cameos. I've got probably. I don't know thirty major people that you know popped up like some people on keeping keeping cedar zeno where i've got like you know some great actors great actors. And it's so funny to a western. I mean i just now. Sometimes i you know i'm a movie guy. I was watching watching it now. Actually is the extended version of the hatefully okay. I haven't seen that. It's good do it. You know it's a long movie. Yeah was like a series. They almost do they stop at certain points and then he started getting like a next episode. Right right i'll tell you. I'm enjoying the heck out i haven't seen it. I've seen it since. I've seen it in the theaters. Yeah you know you know quitting. I quit for awhile while In fact i wanted you know bigwigs on saw a big movie seller i saw the my my rough and thought quentin tarantino has to do with it. I was like what okay. You've seen a rough cut in this and like okay well great. That's nice win and i have. I think we have a lot of the same references that we we grew up with. And you know we're pulling from those things because this is an old mileage to like seventies making just like a when i did black. My isn't omar to that time period. Where i think is just like some of the best movies ever and so. I'm taking pages out of like classic westerns in cool movies that doug and so. I love quentin tarantino connection reference. Mike that's my archenemy. great keep that up. So you know that movie. I'm i'm pretty happy with and you know. And and you know my heart always goes out to the people the fighters out there. 'cause there's part of me that feels like i could've gone that direction you know that that that It just so it's this is a such a part of me that I mean as i still stay connected to it because you know one day. I can't do it michael. You'll like because you're such a martial artist used the fight. You have your background with the tournaments. Did you ever feel. Like i just. I wasn't cage. maybe once. Is there anything like that. You would have of course of course that. That's why i if i name you. How many ufc champions. I've trained with at their gyms. It would have sounded. I mean for way bats or more reach smith to be rampage to all of your and my thing is is is a pure thing. Is that my love for in my my love for by getting better and i i love getting like humbled in learn stuff right is is not about eagle thing as as well in fact. I'm a little depressed. If i wind up being the instructor in that situation But it it's like like Like you know. I i celebrate like the flaws more so like one of the most embarrassing sparring matches. I've ever what is the most embarrassing storm match. I ever had was with michael bisbee. I call myself getting ready to help him. Get ready for george saint-pierre right. We're in and i mean i can barely get out of the first round. I'm so when did that. I'm like you know. I just beat the shit out of me. This'll teach me for the to you. Know waste time in like. But since that time i'm like i never been that out of shape cardiovascular cincinnati so that taught me a lot you know right from when i was with michael business i was going to be meeting up with go con sake. Who one of my one of my favorite standup fighters combination fighters wherever we. We're going to meet up in in dubai in trade. You know you go to. Somebody's is is their rules. I mean whether they go like one hundred percent or not. It's like whatever it's it's you know it's a gentlemen's agreement. So i gotta be ready for whatever you know what i'm saying and so that just taught me you know right after michael business thing where i could barely last two rounds. I just basically like. I didn't take it for granted. Ma'am do my my my road work and everything else. So once i got to buy it was. I was good. Yeah i i love this stuff man. So my my thing is that part of me. That west attest are you know. I've i'm quenched a lot of that because you know like i like i say. I don't think i can get a better fight. Somebody in their home jam and like so like last year. I'm sparring with john jones in his house. So it's like. And and that exchange. I i love it so much. You know. it's it's like how knows it's like the adrenaline rush where you have to react and you have to. You know what i mean. It's like yeah this danger. I could lose a tooth but it will be worth it. It would still be worth it. It would be a great story. John jones knocker tooth out yet. I willing willing for that to happen. I mean i was just. We're in god who three three and a half weeks ago. And you know that's just like you know part of me like you dumb ass. You guys are fucking tree. You know what i mean. What if it goes this direction. It's like okay. Oh i had to start a movie the very next day but there was no way i was not going to get that. I wasn't gonna take take advantage of training with francis gano especially since like i mean we. I met him and he's such a cool guy. And i was like this guy's going to ufc champion one. You know and i told him that. And i was so proud that can i tell you michael too. I liking gone very much. I'm a little concerned though. Like he's eight the comparison. I've used as rocky three like he's enjoying being champion. He's been going around doing appearances of doi- doing and i'm like i hope he's training because i want to see him state champion for a while. I would love to see him. Fight zero god or of course rematch with lewis or even a third fight with steep if it happened. But i'm glad to hear that he's at least doing something. I hope he's really training. Yea francis is a very smart man and he is a physical specimen you smile. I mean he moves really. Well somebody is is i just. I just hope he gets ready for for guy. I hope he outs gone ga. If he does that i mean if he does be you know fights at length and uses footwork at his his size and strength gone will be gone. What do you. What do you think a gun to. Though we pick zero to beat lewis. And i took lewis and What do you think of of new against him. Because even though his footwork is so good and gone heat roseanne strike he just kind of blitzkrieg them a little bit he just kind of ran into throwing a little bit wild caught him and he just he hits too hard anybody to take one shots. Were first time i saw. I said nobody's being that. That's the first thing i said. This guy is technique. Believe me as a big guy with technique. No i know what that brains too often. Big guys rely on their strengths. And when you take a big guy in and get him to use footwork that science that that you know just can isa Everything is the physics of it just magnified. If you've got a guy who's even less strong but he's in motion striking with his whole body and he's out in and out. It's what you have then is basically you got you got. Muhammad ali see you think about this mohammed ali. People don't realize because of his style you'll realize it's the biggest guy in the rings who's bigger than mohammed ali. Right physically bigger mohammed. He was four pounds lighter than george foreman right when they fought four pounds. That was the way in the day before who knows who is heavier than fight day right. Muhammad ali legs a bigger than george for. But psychologically you think oh. Form is is big no former performance fighting another tree. And who's moving. I mean that jab has bobby wait movement like a joust behind so it's stronger than performance. So so it's like if somebody liking gun or a big. Like cyril is fighting on his toast. That's like what the hell do you do. If france gano moves around in goes in out. Hey catch that guy. It'd be very hard for us. Were the problem is a lot heavyweights lazy. and they don't they. Don't use the techniques. That was like magic big. I fought like frankie egg. Would you be able to do with that guys. Moving don't develop that and they see her a gun that's not normal for a guy his size the move like that should be let francis might do that for a round. Just fucking gas. I'm still out own right. But i disagree i. This is one of those things that make bang my head against the wall. I'm going why the hell is it. Good for mike tyson or anyone else to move that to keep your hand movie go in and out and actually do something called defense. What is it good for everybody else but not the heavyweights booze. My freaking mind. So i'm always doing if you can't hit me you're in trouble. So cyril gone guy on like you know like yeah this this concept words for lightweights but it also works for heavyweights now. I don't understand it. Just because everywhere. I got fight like why i i mean. Look frankie eggers got. I mean. Got a little all spring step. You know what i mean. These big is. That's a lot i mean. I don't think they look obviously zero. Gone developed it so could be. It's it's it's different boxers like you said it could be a little light and whatnot. Well yeah but but it's like why. Why does because. Because i'm big. I gotta act like i'm big. No you don't you don't. I'm living proof of that. I mean there's a reason why. I can get in the ring with anybody anybody. I've i've i far with a heavyweight boxers champions all that type of stuff i love is not done. I'm trying to embarrass anybody or anything. I love it. I don't mind getting involved. But i but it's kind of like you know the touching on the thing you talking about like. Hey yeah there's a part of me that goes you know the sound corny but like your man. You've been giving a gift and you're not used. Well i'm using it in a in a way. I do martial arts films. Whatever but honest to god. The very best thing i can do in life is fine. That minds highlight. That's been the best thing i've ever been able to do. And so since. That is my my biggest gift. I can't do it right. So that's why. I've been since i was seventeen was fine with bill watts. He was undefeated. Champion joe louis. Veneer keita's all these people. Because i love it right. So and plus it's it's been a gift of mine. Don't care people he's actor. He's not really. They're supposed to say that annoy better. But like. I'm a nerd with it. So i love to being fight camps and i mean Any bravo tried to get me up to To Ferguson's camp up in big bay. He actually ferguson. Invited me come up there. But i was working on some but that i would love to be up in big. Bear going over technique with ferguson. It sounds ridiculous. But yeah i to be a striking coach. Anybody like when you think about like. I've been striking with with tommy hearns. Frankie lyles freddie roach. I've been instructing kicking. What about the best. Kicker in the world bill wallace. What do you think over the thirty years. I've known him that. I picked up something. Yes so it does make sense to the layman. It don't make sense. They go is guys are fucking act. Okay whatever but i can i. There's nobody if. I'm in conditioned there's nobody in stand up that i can't hold my own with this. Nobody michael how much. I want to one hundred. I'm usually Right now i'm i'm dropping about to twenty five twenty five. You think like derek lewis and probably cut the to sixty five you get him on those toes of his. And you get moving a little like wallace. Maybe we'll stick to the buck in derek. There's something that i've been seeing about their for so long. That that he's not meeting right is isn't knees. Go in. i was like wow no exploiting that. Because he'd be trapped elect kids and as a first time Shogun exploited that guy. That's a physical impairment. That he now had he needs to these shifted out. Because if it's already in that that moment to shift to be able to check a knee it's too. It's too much because he has the. I get the out there right now. You chop down. Even if he tries to check he has to move his legs. Further to be able to check yet so i. Maybe i shouldn't be talking about this thing. Is people get exploited but but it. It's it's a thing that i've always said the guy's not meet how's he gonna. How's it going black alleged and cyril gone exploited that so. Yeah that's one thing he'd have to really you'd have to really Kind of hold his leg in different unnatural position to avoid that sierra gum or a francis i want francis to take a page out of cyril gones book francis can knock you out with a jab I love francis. I love spirit. I love that. I think he's very focused. But i would want to get france's on his toes and make sure that he can use that sets you know and so frances Trainer dewey cooper has been a longtime friend of mine. That's one of the reasons. Why i you know went to train with him. In just exchanged some stuff you know say is hades this. Don't work then throw it away but if it does gate it use it by all means i. I can't use it. I'm doing unless you have one. You know what's your cowboys heroes name. What's his name. johnny. Black johnny black does he. Does he have a background karate. No he has some early comfortable. I would listen. I'm looking forward. Jimmy knows i'm a movie buff. I think you're gonna enjoy these movies that you'll be able to look at with your entire family so i mean it's something i i grew up on these movies where you know back in the seventies and some of the. There was a heyday of movies. That i'm bill Bill as be ogle. God and City forty forty. A would do that. There were these to me these these classic movies again rate that. Yes absolutely jim town saturday night. Let's do it again and And piece of the action. Those those movies were just like for me. I grew up with those kind of movies. And i wanna give this generation movie movie like that. That's what johnny blacks and forty directed stir-crazy with with pryor and gene wilder.

Ball is Bae - S2E20 - Of Coach, Change, and Connaughton

"Fuss Steph home games done. Let's set these relations in before anyone if you think you lost, let's help you find your way or you can sit back relax and listen up to the ball is your favorite. It'd be a podcast didn't accent back at it again this week with your vehicle doors of the NBA. If this is your first time listening to this elaborate, intro, you can catch it every week on all your favorite podcast listening channels, including lips in Spotify Stitcher, and even YouTube for all you, folks. Always remember, though, the more you listen, the more something something engagement, the most something something decision. And of course, the more something's, I'm thinking, get me out of bed of remorse. Speaking of more got with me as always co host basketball grew, and the better beer on this podcast Vinnie. Joining me all the way from sunny, Luxembourg, where immigrants and cross-border implies contrary to seventy percent of the workforce. We need how're you doing? Fine. I have nothing to say, I think. Do you have done research, my friend, that through Vicki pedia and found out? Some words about Laxenburg look at you. You are on of the immigrant workforce there. So I had to. Cross-border. We have somebody from a great institution called crossover. So let's let's welcome Sean, from the crossover academy definitely. It gives us immense leisure and a heart's anxious, butterflies stomachs to introduce someone who needs, no introduction. But, you know, since this is a podcast on his voice is like Morgan Freeman. We will be training menus of all boilers. They welcome to Shawn. Jay found the crossover academy. Welcome to the podcast, Sean, great that he can find some time. Thank you very much, voice isn't quite as deep as Morgan's. But, you know, I do my best, but. Offer jealousy. You guys say my last name better than I do. But. Accent? This is the only podcast with. Exactly. You guys are killing it. But I'm really excited to be here big fans. Love what you guys are doing love the fact that there's genuine interest beyond the hype basketball in India and how it it's working out, and it's great to watch how the community is growing. And the fact that, you know, people are tuning in listening and wanting to be part of something bigger on us. Long as Boston role rose in Indiana, even through either through the NBA or anywhere else. It's personal passion project for us. So if you could just tell something across Gabby. I'm sure north people would be interested in and also like how how you got into basketball, and I think your journey as the basketball player than how you felt like buzzword could bring Sosa changing there will be like a good. God might just eat up here entire podcast time here. All right. It's okay. All the time. All the time. Jealous. I think my, my mom is still convinced basketball, not going to put food on the? I think we've all heard it. So I'm good with that. But basketball soccer kid growing up and basketball just became bigger and bigger because I was born and raised out in western Canada. And during that Jordan era of the bulls the end of the magic stuff the bird. It became captivating. Right. And it became something you wanted to see, and I've been very, very lucky and fortunate. In my pursuits in that. So when I started playing head coaches who were like, look, we need to teach you to game the right way. I was always a nerd even more so than the average typical Indian American kid, and so, like, I even whether it's soccer whether it's hockey and then what whether it was basketball. I would go to the library and takeout coaching books and I would literally run myself through, you know, like, okay, how do how do I get good at this fast? I need to catch up to kids. And so I, I started to plan to understand the game I started to really break that down. But a lot of it was just like, you know, raw flow playing trying to mimic, the Jordan, moved Pippen's the. Unfortunately, like the John Starks of the world right now come back to that in a second. But so I moved to the US though, when I'm sixteen to write about to start eleven standard and. Really blessed? We pick a school in the DC area and the high school coach happens to be a man named Bill sweet and coach I owe so much. Because coach we played and won three rings with the legendary John wooden at UCLA. He was on all of the cream of dul Jabbar teams while you six men he was at McDonald's. All american. You name it and coach week has it played in coach pro in Europe. And so he took a look at me with, like, you know. Stereotype right right away. The first thing he said, was I don't think I've seen Indian kid play bathroom. Am I responsible was like how about a Canadian kid? In that I can intro myself in. But then. But he really was wonderful. Like, you know, I made the squad and we'll work in the end it's old school John wooden, and right? Teach you how to put on your socks so that you don't get blisters entire shoes properly to lower limit of success to that high post offense but really understanding the game and being able to manipulate the game that way. And that created a lifelong love passionate fair for me of how basketball goes beyond. The lines on the court and extend everywhere coach was really adamant about, like, if you're not giving me the best in the classroom, or your teachers are saying that how do I how can I trust you that you're telling me, you're giving me all you have on the court. So all those lessons started to extend let's be honest. I didn't really think I was gonna play much past college. I was pretty stoked at schools wanted me to play in college in the US on. That was pretty exciting for a Brown skinned dude back in the day. Now we've got these game changers out here. Right. Who were just tearing it up. So I have a very unique story in that. My mom is this rockstar. Alcala rockstar in my mom was born and raised in an orphanage in, in Chennai India. Right. And if you picture, what the life of an orphan, girl in India right now to even take it back, sixty years, you can only imagine the obstacles and stuff. She right. And so she literally. Bus her tail and study so hard that like they can't pull out of school. Nobody can make her leave. And she gets to go to university of address immigration Canada. Mary's my dad, but like any ungrateful son, growing up. I literally was like, yeah. Yeah. Everybody had it hard. Everybody had, like I could imagine, like what it was like to be like an orphan child in idiot. I just couldn't and. And they got older. You know, I remember being there for a wedding and talking to some of these none to know your mom is by far out work, everyone, like she you're like, don't even try right? Oh, ho. Maybe there's something there. And then I started looking at started deep diving into those numbers right like you, like, oh my gosh. Like one in five kids in the world. Live in India right now. Oh my gosh. How many kids in India live below the poverty line the international poverty line? How many kids leave government schools before to get the high school what an e stats look, like and mom's kid, but I'm not like staying up till three AM studying by candlelight like her, like I was the kid who is maybe shooting baskets, so three AM. So, so for me Kate, like how do I connect these world? That's what the impotence for crossover came from right? Like playing with the idea of, hey, coach wooden late and found foundation. My mom's laid some foundation. India's there. And I hate I've always hated the idea that we expect those less fortunate to have to work harder than everyone else. I just didn't like the idea of telling like a ten year old kid, you have to go study more versus. How can I reach that kid and teach through fun, right? Hoops, my love. Right. And hoops in India's cool because it's known like, and it's known more now than nine years ago, but it's known. And at the same time. There isn't like this huge mass playing pool yet. So when I introduced it, and I introduced it as a co Ed idea to the boys weren't far enough ahead of the girls to exclude the girls. It's not cricket. It's not football where two boys are have been playing for years. And therefore, maybe when they're excluding girl, a lot of it's that they're not good. It kind of gave the boys and the girls an actual level playing court to start on. And, and so we kinda volved it and with my connections from college hoops, we started to grow it, right? We started to look at how social change can come, but where can we make impact so we started bringing in these college players? We have now over twenty one hundred kids we've gone through crossover. We're seeing eighty five percent of them stay in school. We're seeing almost sixty percent girls participation and we make no bones about it. We're not here to be the next million dollar arm. I'm not saying we're pretty singer pro but I'm saying we're pretty. Sing and other two thousand kids in India, who love basketball and our and are finding a way to use basketball to further themselves in life. Exactly the sport. But what you're doing with the lives, I think as as. Has got much more impact. If I was listening to previous podcast, it's of. Pretty mundane stuff without open shouting, on getting asked opinion on on crossovers and dunks. And so it's really good to have a change of sort of dawn, and we're going for. We're going to kind of serious. I want to see for a little bit more of. Which makes a little more impact in this the ad. I mean, no worries. I can argue basketball guys for the best today's too, so. In that case, let's get to the arguing part of it, Willis. We're starting V starting off it the city of brotherly love Philadelphia showed. Absolutely. No love to throttle. That's obstinately think it was this morning in India. Kyle lowry. Vox triple-single Embiid. Just looked ambig- and co I think, just went expressionless like he was dumbstruck as to how this could happen in the city will start off at you, Sean. I mean, I think we all expected to import themselves. I was of the pin that because the more better players on the court out on the I'd, I would have expected Philly to be the dominant team because they have the best center and they have, and they can kind of nullify been some Ince's absence of shooting to my sinus, any Butler, but I offer the first game, I don't think anyone expected to be enough in the city. So that. That's a great question, right? What's up with that for me? I think out of your opinion, right? Like I think there's a lot of linked. And a lot of strenght in Philadelphia. They've been moving this for a long time. And there's a lot of like manifest destiny. Right. Like they feel like this is where they're supposed to be whether or not it's true. And I think whether or not we like it trying to new team. Right. Nick nurses, new co is new, this isn't old tried and, and spicy peasy, right. Like he's still finding himself, right? Like. There's a good example in game that last game where C com how to chance to throw down on 'em beat and start instead leaned away from him. And let him beat come and get the block. Right. He didn't he didn't go and say, I'm going to certain my will, and I'm going to at least try to throw it on you and draw the foul. He legitimately leaned away from him and fell to the ground, right? And I think. I'll give shout out to my man Scotto Neil, I think, Scott's brilliant. I say Shattuck just because I love the fact that he occasionally, we'll Email me back and I'll take that as a win. But he's definitely listening to this. Custom is. Go to podcast. He makes. We got when this goes, I'm gonna cut that sniff it and send it over to them, right? Like his moves are smart. Right. Like like think about it. He pulled off stealing Tobias Harris from the clippers. Mike, Scott's given the minutes to write. But he pulled off stealing Tobias, who is their leading score in the playoffs for get fifteen and a half. I mean, who did he give up right? He gave up Wilson Chandler like, are you kidding me? What would it Wilson Chandler? Mike Scala Landry Shamet for Tobias Harris and Scott at the love of Bobin. Move on. Right. Like he you're all of a sudden. So I remember like people talk right? Okay, Simmons, can't shoot Butler is streaky. Embiid gets hurt. And you Tobias. Really? Oh, right. We've still got this dude. And you've got JJ who's ready to fire off whenever he limits. Any double team that you can break. I don't know to me like Toronto. I want to try to win. I think they do eventually win. But I don't think it's a cakewalk at any point. I think I don't think option Tobias. Harris. That's a great. V need. I mean you heard Sean Iraqi there's no love for Kawai or up that. Who does that? Let me let me. Thing co island and he is a beast on offense. Now I mean I love it. Lover for his defense. But, like he he's been unstoppable, all the three games just and he would go to wherever you. But that's what people want like it's Kawhi goes we want like Toronto would love victory. Cow is gonna fifth allies gone off. And yet, you're being held back by Kylie scoring Slovenes even Ceac mass showed up. What is this happening this gazelle can't stop and being when is this Justice? Of the seven game series seventeen CD? Okay. Listen, the first game, the Toronto, Raptors crushed. They just crush them. Right. The second game was very close. Right. It was I think think like a minute down. They wanna be it was. For this and then the foul game. And now. Pass. But I think this game was just veered. This was not a it's it's it reminds me of the Spurs nuggets finals game at the final turn. It's not typical Spurs game. How would you do this to bring the Spurs? Come on the Novi don't. Yes. But what, what did remind you off? This not being typical Toronto game. Okay. I'll give them that I think Toronto is. This is the first time trying to face in a punch. This is this is again this why you hired Nick nurse. Apparently, right. Like. That was like an off backhanded common. Apparently. You fire your coaching year. Yeah. So this is where Nick nurse is supposed to prove his where like what's your change of game plan? Are you gonna find a way for like, Jodie Meeks? Jeremy Linda start scoring who's gonna come and start putting in points like e Baca in doing much right now. So Marcus old like I don't know why you don't just matchy Baca onto to 'em. Bead go one on one because he can't stop. Nobody that's fine. You know, let's, let's, let's go back to the old school like Jordan rules, idea that, right? Okay. Let's make him beats. Let's make him beat score. Forty five point two game at beat me. If Embiid is going to beat me from the post in twenty nine teen playoffs. Awesome. If he can score fifty from on the block at his mid range in the occasional three awesome. Because that means nobody else in Phillies contributing the ball is dead. Right. Like if going into one person it's a black, like why double him at this point, let let's see what he can do. And if you do let's put him on his ass, and let's make them pay the price, make that's like if his body gonna hold up over seven games of physical basketball versus like right now. He's getting a free run. I think what you said the most afford. You said made senses. I mean, the thing that you said, miss Moore made, sense, is that bag that. I mean, they have to let Embiid diet out like Embiid. Can't be getting to three points. And then this send kicking doubt forwards easy. They can kicking it all the shooter still have to that adjustment. Has to be that I guess that's knickknacks comes into the picture can Cantu. Roy confront or just sending the double rate from Simmons and literally don't, don't rotate. Don't close out on fake him after shoot. That thing next we wanted to the volumes and rockets like that. With advances. This keeps on coming up against it and they can't ever end up beating it's almost like India Pakistan and World Cup series. Keep on every single this time and this time and this time, I think the fourth or fifth time warriors and rockets matching up and every, you're better this year. We are today by SAP ecstasy driven by SAP, and big data driven by flopping and all. I'm an. Pretend to be. But. In my opinion. I don't think the void is great because because the just great scorers. They are also extremely unselfish take smart shots. Plus, they've got Kevin Durant. So that is why I think the warriors are great like it's not it's not. Three of history. Let me be selfish, but come on. You use. If you sat down Steph curry, you have you have demanded for two of them. You still have. If you sat down. Well, I mean, if you can sit on everyone, then that's in different ballgame altogether and probably than you probably don't have anybody. Exactly the bad boy, pistons, Oregon. The best best NBA team ever both. Thought sticks out to be. After this. I guess after this. Okay, talk about the matchups in a while, but there's a lot of human cry award, these differing positions and. Eckstein to get fouls of making baskets, and need. I'll, I'll come to you. First. I mean you you must have seen game game I agree. There was a little bit of. But how, how nice how professional do you think it has to like, make subtle make three looks so bad? And are maybe look at your thing that is maybe a little bit of something and not, not business going on inside some of those falls on James shooting. Call. You call them like they really went through his body. So I don't know. Like what do you make us that Lillard instrument? I think, you know, I think it's a little bit of everything that little bit of everything as, as life as easily riveting, I think a lot of people are really. Kind of tired of James Harden's flops? And I think that. Hooper for this. Whenever James harden flopping is mentioned. We have the shower them out. Analysis and MVP. And if every company. Off. Yeah. And yeah, I think everyone's just kind of tired of the flops of James harden. And so I think that are being a little bit more like, okay, you know, we're not gonna do it anymore for you. And we're going to be a little bit more straight. But then, you know, trying to be more strict taken of become extremely sticks and of bag. Wrong times. I think it's basketball manages just live with it out. That's what I said. Sean, Sean, is giving me this, look this guy. It's never played basketball. Like. These guys are like that. That's tough the referee. It's just a game right now. Right. Like Jordan had the exact same thing. I think people forget that, right? I mean much more physical era, but, like referencing those, those bad boys has since right where they gave it to them, and they knocked them down. Right. And hardens got I'm gonna go back. He's got a mental block. Like he needs somebody else on his team to score and win the damn first game for him. Okay. Right. Like he needs somebody like, because right now, everything is on his shoulders, and he knows it. And everyone knows it until I don't care who you are. You've got seven foot Kevin Durant with his gargantuan nine feet long arm like closing out on U N. He's Kevin to rate, he's not Draymond green, right? You are you going to call foul on Kevin Durant with the game on the line? Right. Are you going to literally sacrifice it other superstar for harden, right? Like this is like those cases are tough. And. In hardens out, making easier by not attacking the basket, but we've developed a professional basketball game in the US, that is driven around three pointers and fouth and creating fouls. Right. And so he's been getting those calls all year. So any mind you, right? Not against Kevin Durant, but he's getting those call. So who he supposed to like, unless you're changing your entire style at the last second? That's why I'm like he's gonna go to his teammates. He's got it. Like Chris Paul has to show up right again. Who did they give up for Chris Paul right now that you're sitting there going man, they use Lou Williams? Like how sad is that? Old, Chris Paul ultra solve the real. Right. Younger Chris Paul current old. Chris Paul is not there. Right. Right. Clint cappella isn't gonna win. You a game like who is your who, who are they going to and dantonio is smart? But smarts it a point like I said where he doesn't have another option. Right. And so, you've gotta talk to harden about, like, how are you creating action for heart into come off the ball to get a switch to get a Draymond on him? And he can attack Draymond. Right. Because he's not gonna get it when it's in the situation. And even if it's a ball screen, they're just going to go over top the ball screen. They're gonna hedge and they're gonna trap to get the ball at hardens hand. Right. So you have to have Chris Paul coming off a ball screen at the top, and then hard and coming off of a downstream somewhere else to free hard enough. Postman a. Say draft to you have to think about this in a way to, like, how do you get hard in the ball in the best possible, because they know to nobody NBA history is getting the ball with Kevin Durant in front of you a positive net result. Like even getting in front of Chris, instead of Steph curry, I want Steph covering James harden, clay trying to cover. That's a good match. I don't want seven foot freak of nature. Kevin Durant to cover you because Kevin rank and windy fence player of the year. If you want. Yeah. I mean. To say about it. Take. No. Like think about it. If kevin. And you know that right. Like Kevin Durant said, okay. I'm gonna flat out play deeded here. All eighty two games. No, no, I'm not gonna all five go to the fourth quarter and then in the country and then. Which he can do. Throwing up back to quiet, and I don't talk a lot here. But. I like shoot wouldn't you throw Hawaii Leonard at Joel Embiid at some point, I would because he would be great at stating. You'd be that an MP would actually get Embiid would have to win the game in the post. Right. You've either no way. He's gonna face up on July. There's always going to shoot a three I like head. Go ahead. You can back down all day and again, I'm going to give you. I'm gonna make you score. Thirty points by doing fifteen like drop step and tire you out to like that stuff is tyrod. You're not you're not gonna put you on the free throw. But then you talk about the rockets. Like, I think it's very interesting to note that James harden, and Kevin Durant in. Okay. At one point of time I God, why keep bringing that up. And now they're not. Westbrook. Brooks. No. I feel like Russell Peters skit about. Shooting. Would be a wig. Sean, who's your favorite player right now in NBA. Favorite player to watch. I mean it's a push between Durant, LeBron in person like to watch they're just poetry out. I've been I've been really lucky like. Boston right now. Right. And I've seen LeBron play I think six times from, like, basically, courtside seats. Do you see last game seven of the conference? Forgave seven in Boston. Boy, Kulkarni Cardi called me up and said, hey, I got tickets. I'm driving from New York right now. And we were like ten rows back and it was pretty unreal behind the Cleveland batch, and it was the brand is the Voronova Brown. I mean these guys when you take basketball is a purely, like poetic, the ballet of, of athleticism. There's nothing like those two. I think one of the best game that I saw was Kevin Durant, and what's his name. Oh, it's totally a gravest Vasquez to Kevin Durant gross Vasquez in highschool play against Tyler and Mike, Beasley and a high school game. And if you wanna talk to my seventeen year olds at their best going at it. Like, Kevin Durant with special like these guys know how to finish, and they're they're passionate. They Durant is is uniquely special like LeBron that they also their brain, the Brian super basketball focused and then he's built out, I think Kevin always been. Had multiple interest in life. It's why like he doesn't need to stay with the team. It's why LeBron. Right. Like if a job still to them, they always known it was a job. And the way we treat high school ball in the US. It's job like for those guys. So it's always been a job. So why would I go to where it's gonna make the most sense for me versus? So I, I don't buy into the non loyal thing. I think all of us have jobs and nobody yells at you. When you leave a company to go somewhere to another company. I don't understand why we yell at a dude for signing somewhere else. That's that's now one on. With the Hobart one. I mean, I've been supporting Celtics, the Klay off because I feel Brad Stevens is an absolute genius for coach, and he will make the necessary instruments. But the way the box game point guard. You're the. God, I bought the I'm betting my next guest. I can't have this down. I live it. This is the fact I love selfish player. He's a Kobe fan. He he buys Kobi's books. And so it's a great you have you have looked into the soul of in forget me in forty minutes of talking. It'd be a vetting our next guest, we cannot have this. Do you like? No. Are you going to argue? With exact. The bucks. Yes. Celtics. Yes, yes, yes, the man from the Semtex, like what do you think that's expenses for keeping their good? I mean. Celtics are really good. Let look suck at that wrong. Right. They come at you with so many different prongs that like, like they wanna game Tatum scored like six points. They can do that. They've so many different levers that Brad Stevens can pull. And he's very knowledgeable about that, right? He's smart. Coaching staff. Behind him. They all work together. But they're win. They're not selfish, right? And they have to to guard who can be who can who can demand the ball between rose year Irving. But when they're moving the ball, I mean you talking about Horford, and you talking about Baynes, and you're talking about Morris coming off the bench Brown. Oh, and Gordon Hayward right? Like who's all of a sudden playing back like he was in Utah. You have you have very scary team. And it's just if they're willing to play that way for forty eight minutes or if they if they lose focus because they don't actually, let's be out. They can play that way for twenty four minutes and still win a game because they have so many different levers. I mean that's something that you saw in the between the game one and game two because game one like they I thought Semtex absolutely came with a proper plan. Like they knew this, we're going to do you're going to hit them hard. And then keep keep that restaurant. But in game two maybe lacquered icicle coats talks. I. I. I mean, I think Jaanus decided he needed to be honest. I think it's the same hurdle that like hardens facing. Right. You have to you have to step into a role and you have to attack the honest. Let's be honest. Can't shoot. Great eater. He's not Simmons level, but he can't. But he decided, I still need to pull the trigger. And but then he still attacked right? You went at Boston, and made them collapse and be Boston is great. I don't know how much you guys watch college hoops. But like the Boston approach to, to Janas it very similar to how UVA plays defense, which is gap defense. Right. When you honest gets the ball, they all sync, and they're willing to give up everything else in the world. What happened for Milwaukee worst Middleton, starting shot? Right. And all of a sudden you can't sink quite as much as you did, which opened up lanes, right? And Jaanus recognize it and went right at their jugular with it, right. Bledsoe's wasn't playing. Well, I don't think he's playing awesome right now at least in this series. Though. Pez Lopez George hill is a winner. I hate to like everybody's gotta say like it sounds strange but George hill right now looks a lot like what Steve Kerr and Robert ory to an extent. Riley, he's been to what two straight finals. Right. He's been there. Right. And I'm not saying he was the man. But I'm saying the locker room presence. It's like, hey, this is what you need to do for us to win seen it. And everyone believes him, right. The reason why we had the dare Smith moment. Okay. Alert. I think it's funny like everybody wants to talk about how Tyree has the most winning percentage of a playoff player ever. Right. Forget the kyri didn't make the playoffs. Right. Like there's this whole losing era of people forget about which winning does. Right. George hill is similar to straight years, two. Straight playoff runs. He's around I don't think contents played well yet I don't think, and they don't have broad. I think I don't know what the status report is on brogden. But Manny like he can go and he can shut down. If you put brogden on the wing. It also changes the series. I think. Fifty thousand ninety club before he got injured. Right. But I think the coaching adjustment are gonna be on both sides thing. It's going to be very interesting. I think this is why Brad Stevens is considered a great coach but he also he gets a lot of love for not having figured out a way to get half abroad. Right. Like, in the same way, the Toronto coach got fired pretty exact same situation. Like if you pick between if you had to pick between coach, but and Brad Stevens who would you pick? I think Brad even brilliant, like there's no doubt that he is. He's an he's out thinking people right like. You have to look at what he did a Butler, right? Like he crushed people with small market college team. And that's the other part right? He's got the buying of Gordon Hayward, for the last ten years, right? Like like. Gordon hayward. Like you know as much as you want to look like he's in a boy band is a six nine Nikola shea who can ball and this Nickless. I mean, I guess it's India. Right. The a six nine Nick Jonas. Nick Jonas stopped passing yet. Come on, man. All those all those magazines are ready to crown him. He's going to be challenging boating next. What you guys are gonna see. But I, but I, I think it'd be interesting. I don't. Do you need a phenomenal coach to get past coach Stevens? No. I mean, the brand has shown it I'm not knocking lose a good person controller. He didn't like the X. No genius. But he did keep everyone happy. Right. People weren't upset winter. Coach. Yeah. I mean it's, it's like what we saw right? We were talking about device Harris early, right? It's going to be Chris Middleton air. But so in brook Lopez's hit shots. It's that's the series right there. See one thing I learned about basketball is that like usually the team that has the best players candidates for the most part and. You know Jaanus is the best player on in that entire series and it's ad is not playing with corrupts who's playing with a good team. So that's why I'm always biased to the team that has the better player. And it's not like you know, it's not it's not a it's not a is this, a matter of will this better player step up. And I think John, this has that in him. He shorted in this last game where he's like no, I really want this series. So I'm gonna I'm gonna place. My bet on on, on Milwaukee in six. Get this is not the hardest thing that Jaanus has ever done right. Like his life path, right like this isn't like pressure to him. No. Man battled everything the streets and getting out of Greece. Right. Like dinner suit. He's got a fake story. One of those code stories. Yeah. Student. Given to them asked to Milwaukee. Right. Like where it's cold, and there really aren't that many people color hanging around. And yeah, I mean he's he's awesome. And I think I think part of it's going to be like, how much where's the debate of how much Kyrie tries to take over how much Roggio tries to take over to the rose year. Get people involved because Brosio more than anybody. I think gets really excited about putting in points and wanted to 'cause he's still playing for another contract to start somewhere else. So he's trying to show out, but on the Boston connection you're forgetting that Janas man. Pat Coniston's from here. Right. Competence from Boston. He's going to be playing some friendly confines. They could use him knocking out shot right now. So that might be I would love to see pack onto have a homecoming where he goes off. If that happened really over the nugget, and, and basis, but mean still nuggets, I think it's one so portrait has home. Yeah. I I'm not really sure one-third nuggets offense is about. I mean, I know that Portland is all about Lillard on McCollum making shorts and. There's a little bit of any kind of left separated shoulder and little bit of little statement. How can we go over the fact that just real quick, that NS Kanter got the NBA Turkey social media? Dude. Fire? All I love absolute boss, boss. That's a pretty boss move. Yeah. That's a Boston. Yeah. The fact that he throws them hard NBA, hasta fire somebody on the other side of the world. Exact. Yeah. I. That's what I did like about. Dr. I think that trolling him saying go back or. No. You can't. And then he goes into mostly. I think. I think there's a lot of Americans who don't know where that line is sometimes, when, like chanting players, we all give Russell Westbrook credit. They're like, like somebody's got to put in really tough spots. And I think. And I think the NBA starting to figure that out like it's a hard, I think, every workplace it's like where's the lines on inclusion versus being able to speak your mind, right? And so, so I was happy to see Kanter get something. I was happy to see the NBA backup there player and not say, oh, you just have to live with it, right. Like I think they did. And the same thing with the Westbrook situation. They didn't like I, I think in that regard sorry that's a side note of leaving. We did discuss and I don't know. I just went to my first IPO match this year. Right. So I don't know how nasty the crowds can be. I mean I was in Delhi, and I watched CS K dominate and so. Indian agenda, peaceful people. No, that's not true. Talk. In a very innovative, quiet. No. We are listening. Call you on calling to fight? He did. I all Coutts the exhibit that behavior that, you know, you can't like in a mob, we have a Moscow. You can do something. I'm still humid, right? Like the Delhi capitals had a of beard, WNBA defensive player of the year. Hanging out. She's in the crowd at the Delhi capital. Give nobody no no parts of the analogy there. I don't think anybody follows WNBA. That's fair. That's, that's very fair to have no clue. She is. But. But. Yeah. But I'm out all. Sixty six. The six foot African American woman. Ellie. The deli is a little messed up. Let's not was that named elegant that even mean delicacies. Let's not. Let's not even go. On the other hand. I do think that India will produce professional WNBA player. Claire. Fuck. I don't know how to insult definitely. Anything? Anything? I just think the way the games are laid out and the expectation and the way the approach. Yeah, I think I think there's a lot of growth. And I think there's more diverse amount of girls playing the guy's playing in there but. Oh, going back to what the nuggets offenses the beauty of the nuggets that joe-marie could go off for fifty points at any given time you have no clue where it's coming from, like he wakes up one day and all of a sudden he's averaging twelve points and I'll send you hit fifty and you're like what just happened. Right. And because you have to their offense really is like it's Yokich. Right. It's jokers gonna get it and he's gonna be Magic Johnson. And he's gonna make ridiculous passes at a fake center. Fix. How many like in the truth term of center how many times you see yoke score the document asking not many things. He does he even more of a stretch for that. He is a center he stops the backwards basket and they put some nice like walks away from the basket. It's not even like a turned around and shot. It's not he doesn't even jumping just. Pace. This is vertical. Mason Plumlee can actually get off the ground and. You know, that's fun will Barton can go off. You know, they've got guys that can play trae Lyles who aren't even in the games right now. But it's really just if Jamal Murray goes offer not. Right. Bomber is what if you twenty one very, I'm twenty one. Yeah. Three. I feel like you've just add Kentucky, I feel like if I brain like now, I have to look it up because I saw him I met him at the hall of fame when he was up there for the induction data. Two years ago. So twenty two twenty two and sixty nine days. Canada, right. Kitchener ontario. Yeah. I mean he's young like this is even the best nuggets we're going to see over the next few years like those who are just going to get better around. Yeah. There one to game is really good. They have good like a good connection. I think they could be if they if they keep their egos, aside, I think there could be kind of like the NASA doing. No, they're very good. They really can see that they can really can of coke is also good passer just McCollum owners. Cholera, very fossil. Yeah, I mean and yoga to twenty four. He just turned twenty four. So they've got load, can you imagine if did nuggets, it somehow trade for Tobias Harris instead? Like they say, like I can't get over to I was thinking about yesterday's that, if I'm old enough to get Klay Thompson. I think that would be what accumulating. I think I'll be, I'll be curious who they draft. I think that's going to be very interesting for their squad money. They have money but people aren't gonna. People aren't going to go sign in Denver. That's not like a tier one destination. NBA has shifted in that. It's not just about money. It's about money outside of the court. Where can you build your brand social media's Totta stat? So if the Knicks will always be in the conversation, all of Brooklyn shifted that, right? Brooklyn is now. It's in New York City, and they have shot signing for ages because they can actually win ask or something. You think Katie will consider the Knicks as on equal terms with nets navy? Because that's something we need as a dismissed outright. Brooklyn is not New York, liaison. Doc about Brennan's too young Brooklyn, New York. What are you talking about man? Man, do you not? No biggie Smalls deserve to get smacked by Diddy. Any? Have you not watched any ninety? Is living in Brooklyn. Probably no. He doesn't live in Brooklyn anymore. Peop- people go from Brooklyn to New York City, that's how the poor people from New York City. The poor people from New York City, go to Maryland. That's. Thirty years ago, thirty years every hipster in the world. Poor. That's the whole pint, that's why they're hipsters not a New York. They're fake for it. To live in Brooklyn. You still like a one as compared to the people living in Manhattan. Compare. You're like, wow. How about yourself? So, okay. No, I don't think Katie fits with, with the Angela Russell. I don't I don't think they're games match right? Russell needs to needs to have. All right. And I don't think he that point where he's not. He's not going to give up the ball, right? Like I don't think he goes there. I think if he goes to New York, I think that kyri Katie combo is, is very, very fun. And they both will make a lot of money. Katie slash Zion. Villian. Maybe. Ion is fun. Good Spock is I wouldn't have to be the man right in that situation. I think I don't think anything's ions developing it. But I don't think he's like this one on one. I can break you down yet guy in that regard. You're looking at the other two kids in the draft that right? That is. Not ready for I should do very good when he wants to go he can go from Murray state, right? But. I, I think Katie kyri in New York looks really fun. I think it would be good for basketball. I think it's good for like the game. I think you're gonna see some playground up stuff happened. Okay. I think, and I think if you I think new New York needs to, and it fits the nixed being a for some reason or not, they've, they've never Celtics, what we've been like the premiere on the east, right, the Knicks get to the bad guys. I'll go back until I referenced Johnstone. Oh, you're not. Like that, like this hated to hated athletes in kyri, and Katie going to New York. Everybody hates them now. Right. And everybody running show all of a sudden, you're like this. We don't even let the color combination of the Knicks, right? Orange and blue like that, right? The only thing is. You know, the only thing is like coach, it wife is is of Indian descent. That's the only involves Beijing. Right. Right. Like, that's the only the only Knicks connection. I don't think the Knicks seven good during any of our times. They started my. Naughtily goodbye Mari mellow for a little. Right. Amari gets hurt. Melodist is he didn't have to play defense. They need to buckle over for everything. I mean right. I mean, the nuggets took a while to recover from from losing melody, somehow nobody wants. Nobody wanted to ten years. Like I actually wanna take a look at that, right? Like who went to the playoffs between mellow and the nuggets fit in that era and what happened which team really which which organization really one eight trade of superstar. I don't know. I would love to see kyri Katie. I think it would be really fun for basketball, and it would set up really fun dichotomy of ball LeBron on the other coast, and then he's still got splash brothers right ball, bought Lonzo ball and Abhran. Yeah. Book like, right. A point guard at a wing right makers corral, and go to the clippers Toronto. Not after this playoff run. I mean he slipped to really really disappointed yesterday. I, but I think that helps them I don't think he leaves off of like losing. And I don't think right now. He's to inventive. They've got knocked out in the first round. Cool. I think he's invested Toronto's charges such a great city fits his MO, like Toronto is such a hockey city that loves basketball there. They fifty fifty shot people don't notice to six seven men and dreads walking around Tronto. Right. Like you go to a restaurant, and there'd be like a whole bunch of hockey Levin, white people who never know who he was. That's. Little extra low key? I'm throwing all this stuff out people. Like I hope the wrong people aren't listening. I don't know how many white listeners you haven't Tronto all the give you those numbers pretty soon. Dying share by demographics and. So we'll have a quick rapid fire. Let's go favorite basketball player of all time. Michael jordan. Okay kobe. Lebron? Lebron's Lakers are Boston. What? I think I gotta say Celtics. Okay. Rule table in our Shaquille O'Neal. Shock shock. God on the Lakers, clarifications. Okay. Young shack at at twenty two percent body fat. Fana. All right. If you had to, if you had to build a team today, who would you start your team? Of current age. Right. Not right. Jaanus yannis. That's it. That's the end of the, the rapid fire five questions. Pretty leopard one one one lobbyist. You've enjoyed a lot John wooden and John wooden, like legendary. Circles. Why what is what is something that he's told you that, as you know, stuck that you all this, something that you everyone stuff? I think the stuff that people forget is that wouldn't was a master of relationships, I'll say this, right? Like basketball is basketball under so many ways to cut to cut basketball, and there's no single way that necessarily works. It's how you deal with people. And I think John wooden and his pyramid success. Release felt that way, right? John wooden had a young man named Lou L, cinder, who's converting to Islam right in time in the late sixties in America when people with it not like it right. Muhammad Ali was getting banned cetera. And he takes a young guy named Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, right? Or as you can bring, and he stays and creates a relationship and old white man from Indiana creates relationship with Luella center. That's what makes him an and at the same time, you can create a relationship with Bill Walton, right? Like very different personalities. And I think that's the biggest thing. Is he each of his players like they were person and not as a piece of a puzzle, right? And then they the puzzle came together when you had all these. Great pieces. And I think coach, wouldn't it was tough everything I know about him coach. We like he threw coach week out of out of a gym my coaches. The only person John wooden thrown out on. There's a whole chapter in his books dedicated to it. So it's kind of funny, but, but it speaks volumes like I'm not saying he was like, but he treat everybody with dignity. And I think we, we started to see the loss of that in coaching, especially at the younger levels. Right. Like. I have a great mentor named Kevin Sutton, who used to be the head coach amount, vertu kademi, and assistant coach right now, Rhode Island and Kevin calls them call. He said your players should be your living trophies as an extension of that wouldn't is right? Like we don't get much coaches, but those people who live on your living trophies. They represent who you are. And that's what you win in life. And those types of the moments that we forget that basketball creates right? Like why is Jeff Han Mark Jackson? So tight still right. Like, why are they still so cool around each other? Because there's a relationship like Jeffy and Gundy, clearly yelled and flipped out and ran around the court, right? Like like a madman at times, but his players all new loved him and his players all respected him for Riley again. Look at Jefferson in what way do you ever look at Jeff hang any guys baller? But everyone is players. Right. Was with cool with him. Right. And I think that's kind of the we're seeing that Brad Stevens. We're seeing like. There's a relationship that has to exist. And I think you can be tough on people. But as long as they know they have to know you love and you have to actually love him. Right. You have to actually care, and I think that one of the last things that Elaine and I were talking about when we were in Delhi, a few weeks ago was, we had a coach's clinic, we're talking so much about that care like so many coaches in India. Right now haven't been taught that part. It just hasn't been part of the culture of like you can learn the Xs and os I teach you a one three one's own. I can teach two three and match matchup. But hey your kid has to buy into it, right? Like, if your kid doesn't actually end they have to see that you're you're fallible, right? Like I constantly told my players show. That's my bad. I picked the wrong defense today. I gave us the wrong scout on that kid. So here's how we're going to fix it. And that trust is huge because they go, oh, yeah. We can do that. Right. I referenced that we played against a math of Ola deport sharing. I had a team of six foot white kids from the sun. 'burbs and we beat that team. Right. Why? Because my kids, like, like, here's how we're going to do it. And I think this is gonna work, right? But even then you coach till the end like we call the time out with forty five seconds, left knowing we're gonna win the game. And I called it just so that I could keep telling my kid. Okay, now is not the time dance and celebrate right? Like we're going to beat a great team. Don't act like jerks like you still have to keep coaching. And I think that's what you see more in the college level. I think it's why coach John Calipari. So successful people can talk all the smack they want, and there's rumors about caliber. There's the reason kids go to play for him because people say he he cares about his players, right. John wall will vouch Anthony Davis vouches, right? Kitty cat vouches these guys all vouch for. For their coach. Whereas there's players go to you know why didn't Lee high make the jump after. CJ McCollum goes to the NBA. He's not vouching everyday. I coach. Right. You're not saying Joe this. So that's my translation. I don't know if that answers the question or not. But I think when you talk about what it is you're talking about building relationships that last and that you, can you can coach hard as end. But you have to coach earnestly in love kit versus just yell, again because you think you're going to get paid one last. I mean, I think this was all the third last question that he's sister. I'm going to be totally missing lunch today. Yard mount Rushmore of coach. John wooden, pro or college or anywhere on thing is it's you're an Indian podcasts asking about mount Rushmore. At least at least, I, I know mount Rushmore so. The NBA people know what more, I think it was on the last who is your who's. John wooden Red Auerbach Phil Jackson Dean Smith. Mike. Chef ski I'm gonna throw five on there. Oh, it's that I don't know about this. Four. Just gave you five and you gotta live with it. I just don't think you can talk basketball without talking about those five guys and that they and how they encapsulated the game. I think it goes back, just what I say like relationships, Doug Collins, had Michael Jordan, Phil Jackson wins with Michael Jordan. Right. How do you Phil Jackson manages to win with Koby and shack? Right. Some people couldn't right? How many I think it important thing to always remember, like how many times Koby missed the playoffs right people, freaking out, LeBron missed it? Right. And it's like the second time he's ever missed the playoffs. So I think all those factors again. Thank you, Sean. Like, maybe of course, see you once again that I'm excited. Like I said, I definitely want to connect, you guys more and see what else we can do. I think I think you guys to do something fun here. And I think there's a lot of people wanna talk to you guys. So this'll be good. Good ties. Right.

Repodcasting 17 Hitch

"Repot casting is a proud member of the L Berta podcast network. Powered by ATP. Had you ever watched the movie and wondered why the cast sat will men or that guy? Well, here's our chance to give it a try re podcasting. Hello. And welcome to another episode of re podcasting, I am Lucia. And today, we have a special treat in my mind, we are recasting, the movie hitch. In it. I'm sorry. I always. Kind of rude. We're supposed to be having a discussion. Well, the thing is we always talk for a bit before we start recording. So I kind of tend to forget. And Hello listeners. Welcome back. I love how formal impolite your. Actually still coming back in tuning in. I think we should think them agreed. I don't know why you wanna keep listening but we love it. Okay. Let's talk about kitsch. This one was your pick. It sure was. I saw this movie. It came out in two thousand five. I saw it. I don't know probably shortly thereafter on, like home video, or whatever, and lots of people had been saying, how great it was in, even though I didn't really like Will Smith. I thought, okay final give it a chance. And I didn't really enjoy it. But again, I don't like Will Smith. So it's very hard for me to enjoy a movie where he is the main character in every scene. This watching it again for our podcast. This was what your second time watching it. Yes. Okay. And what made you decide to pick this movie to be recast? Like, what was it about this movie that kind of paying your radar in terms of recasting? Well at the time when I saw the movie I don't think I really knew Kevin James, but I since then I don't like him either. And so, you know, I thought maybe this is the fact that I don't like these actors is clouding, my judgment because if felt like this movie was getting a lot of love from what I would hear from, like people, I know. So I thought maybe if I can envision different people in the roles that I might like it more. I don't know if that's going to be true, but we'll keep talking in find out. When you watched it, the first time like wizards, something about it that really bugged you. And you just thought like when we started talking about recasting you were like all let's recast hitch. I just thought it was interesting that you chose this movie because I don't like Will Smith. Stick like his in. It's so funny because I feel like there are two will Smith's the one from the nineties, who was in, like this comedy rap duo and was in fresh prince of Bel-Air, and it was really silly. And then at some point, he just suddenly turned into this lake super self-importance super serious. Can't laugh at himself kind of person felt like, and so, you know, he's always cool in everything he, he can never look uncool in anything, and even in this movie like in the scene, where he's quote unquote, uncall-. Gimme a break. He still looks the same. He's still buff in lake what all they did was put glue. Asses on him in that makes him uncall- heart Kent. Exactly. So, yeah, that's what kind of stood out to me, the first time that I watched that was kind of bugging me about it. But yeah, I watched it again. I know I know he. That way. Of course, he does. I remember watching him on. I don't know. It was some talk show, and he actually called himself a movie star. So I was like, wow, that's amazing. Most people like most actors when they're talking about themselves, they call themselves actors or hurt us. But this guy was like, I'm a movie star. And you know what? I think it's the lack of humility in of his persona in general that bugs me that. I just I don't like it. I just want to hang. Well. Why anyone that's listening in loved him. And it's weird like I had never watched this movie. And it was never honestly, I barely even remembered that this movie existed. So I, I don't know. I was like, okay let's recast it like I didn't know anything about this movie before we get into any kind of major details about it. I just wanted to say a thank you to one of our listeners who left us in, I tunes review. Yeah. But I think we know who this is. But I'm just going to say it anyway, the listeners name is the username is. AJ. Schwa-. And he said, that we have interesting conversation, they really know their movies. Excellent idea, it's like fantasy sports for movies. Yeah. So thank you. AJ. That's definitely compliment. Is he compared us to fantasy sports? Did you look up the box office for this? I did. So the budget for this movie with seventy million, that's huge. And again, clearly I totally within the minority on this because it made so much money guys, obviously, lots of people enjoy this movie went to see it while I don't know if they enjoyed it. But a lot of people went to see it so box office with, and this is a blow bottle number. So it was three hundred and six million. Got huge. I would like wow. Why are you know anything about this movie, but he made all this money? Well, even seventy million. I mean, I guess that's just because Will Smith was already a movie star at that point. He must have had a huge paid paycheck, but I mean, three hundred sixty eight million for a romantic something that's considered a romantic comedy impressive. Then it's successful for sure. Yeah. I guess. I mean I know there are lots and lots of women who like Will Smith. But I think he's also very well liked by men. And so I think that this did really well as far as wrong comes go, because it was probably in comparison with other wrong calms it was probably more enjoyable for both men, women. I'm going to be a little like I don't know gender biased here, but it's a. I think you kind of have to look at the release date to, which I looked up, and it came out right before Valentine's Day, they really, you know, I think it was February the eleventh two thousand and five okay? So it was probably, you know, people went to see it. It's a date movie. Maybe like that was part of the success to the timing of the release. That's smart make sense. Well, okay, the synopsis of this movie for anybody who hasn't seen it, while helping his latest client with the lady of his dreams of professional date. Doctor finds that his game doesn't quite work on the gossip columnist with whom he's smitten. When you were watching this, maybe not so much the first time. But when you were watching it now for our podcast could you tell, but it was written by a man. Oh, yeah. Definitely. Right. I still had like a ton of problems with it on this watch. Yeah. That was actually one of the questions that I wrote down to ask you, do you feel that this movie has aged, well, because this movie is a fourteen year old movie. Right. No, I watched the first half last night, and then it just kinda got late. And I got tired and fell asleep. And I didn't watch the rest until this morning so early on in the movie, I was struggling not to scream a phone. Because their reports that were really pissing me off, especially right in the beginning, just in the way Will Smith talks about women in what they want as, if he knows. And hurry. I'm inheriting are you talking about the opening fan when I have? So her, yes. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. That angered me really now by the end because he's saying, essentially, like even the women are telling you that they don't want to go out with you. It just means push a little harder, like it was just kinda gross and sleazy the message. Do you feel it translates? Well to what is kind of going on in our society slash culture. Now I think it's relevant, but to say translates. Well, no, I think it's super dated. I agree. I agree. It's funny because I was thinking the same thing when I was watching the opening sequence where he's got he's doing the voice over, and there was one line that I wrote down because I was like this is such bullshit. It's when he says he's talking about women and like the accuses that women gift about not wanting to like date them or whatever. And then he says, or my personal favorite I'm really into my career right now. And then he says, you believe that neither does she and I thought, oh, I can't believe I'm hearing this because basically you're saying that women don't care about their careers. Not as much makes her about finding a man. And I thought, you know, I feel like a lot of these rom com. They really q- power supposed to look at things because some people like look at stuff like this, and actually take it seriously or people's expectations sometimes like are based too much on what they've seen in romantic comedies, but I thought that was stop particular line. Was so insulting that line stood out to me, too. It was. Yeah, it was appalling. Now they were very smart in this movie, too, though, because they would do like they would save ridiculous things like that. But then they would also try to like, I don't know balance him out, like he won't work with a pig or you know, things like that would be win. The one guy says that he wants to work with the doctor, but he just wants to bang the girl, and he's like, no, I won't work with you. Like, as if who's suddenly principled or something jumping ahead. He yet, maybe. Anyway, I just going to say this, what he's doing is sleazy and manipulative and full of lies. So don't like he can't suddenly act like he's principled. Anyway. I see what you're saying. I do talk out, cutting. Yes, do you wanna go first? No one can mentioned a couple of things. First about the casting illness. Maybe when you were doing some research, both the movie, but what I found really interesting was some comments that Will Smith made while he was promoting the movie about the casting process, and how race was an issue of casting the leads. Did you see that as well did, so we'll Smith? I actually said, in an interview that he didn't want to cast a white female in the lead role. That what's her face is in God, I just heard on her name either Mendez Stephen want to cast a white woman because the executives at Sony were worried that an interracial Coppell would not play well with U S viewers that it would might be offensive to American viewers. And then he said the flip side to that was that they didn't want a caste of black actress in that rule, because they felt that to black leads would alienate the audience the white audience, I guess. Yeah, specifically say the white audience. I'm soi who else would be right. Exactly. So I thought that was really interesting. Not surprising mind you. But again, like I wonder if they ever decide to remake this movie, you know, they'll change that up now, especially kind of just with the way things are changing. And Hollywood is at least trying to be more inclusive now. Right. But I was like so, like, I'm reading that and I'm like, this is why this movie hasn't aged well for no other reason, but this got approved for a budget of seventy million dollars, but that these were kind of the limitations that they were faced with in terms of casting. I don't know. Like comed- seems antiquated. Maybe in two thousand and five it wasn't. I don't know. I don't know fourteen years ago. It was a while ago. You know and why, but it wasn't like fifty years ago. Well, I don't know. I just was reading that. And I was like, oh like that. In itself doesn't translate into now. Yes. But I remember as Eason sorry saying, and he hasn't been on the scene for that long. And I remember him saying that there would be times where he would not be booked on a gig because they already had, let's say, Russell Peters or like another Indian after 'cause they couldn't possibly book to Indiana Pacers. So it doesn't surprise me that in two thousand five they were thinking that way. It's a paneling but it's not surprising that kind of worthy. In terms of casting. Yeah. And hearts with the costing if she, like, okay, we'll just quickly since we're talking about casting. I also read that Will Smith was the one who wanted Kevin James in the role of what's his name, Albert Brennaman, because he liked king of queens and thought he was funny. But I thought that was really interesting that Will Smith had like 'cause I didn't look into too much of the background of the movie. And so I thought it was interesting that he had a big say in who's getting like a lead role. Oh, okay. Now mix. Okay. So my re-casting for Alex Hitchens the Will Smith role. I-. Recast Ewan McGregor. Yet. Sorry. Whole areas and amazing at the same time. Gregor. Okay. Yeah. So I think he is charming. And I do think he's attractive. And I thought that. If the if that rule was played by somebody with a lovely accent that it would help me deal with it better. Scottish accent would've made his character more likable is what you're. I know that that's shallow. But here we are. No one I do. I do think that you regard her as a charming guy. And so I don't know. Mcgregor is charming of cruise, so. Yeah. For anybody who doesn't know he was most recently in the movie, Christopher Robin. He's also from the Fargo TV show end Trainspotting, and my Sarah Eva Mendes character. I ended up with two I couldn't really decide between the two. So my first one is Halle Berry. I thought of her may be halfway through watching it. And then while watching a Mendez I was just thinking, oh perfect. I could totally picture Halle Berry in this role in doing this in saying that in whatever and yeah. I think that she'll be really good. I think that, you know, the character has to be attractive, and confident and can really hold her own, and I feel like that's a quality that Halle Berry has alley. Vary. A new McGregor has he ever worked together? I don't even know. I don't know off the top of my head. I can't remember save over work together. Yeah. I can't think of anything that I've seen them both me that needs to happen. If anyone's listening, exactly. So my second choice for the Mendez character is Marisa Tomei. Yeah. Now, in terms of the chemistry thing, I can kind of picture her with you in McGregor, a little better than Halle Berry. But I could kind of picture Halle Berry doing the part a little better than Russa me. So that's why couldn't really decide between the two. Yeah. So Mercer domains from crazy stupid love and my cousin Vinny. Yes. She's also somebody who I think she can be really charming as well in. She also, you know, can play role that doesn't take crap. So I think that she could have done that really well too. Okay. I know. And then my Albert Brennaman recast, the Kevin James character. I'm gonna go onto a rant here because you know, I just it doesn't I could not get past him in this role winning over Allegra. It's not all about looks, but he's like they didn't do enough in my opinion to make that character appear likeable or attractive in any way. And I can get past looks like when I say attractive, I'm not necessarily talking about physical attractiveness. I just I didn't see anything about him. That made me think. Yeah. I can see why that women would want to be with him, not even that he was like, just got an oracle work, but he wasn't an adorable dork. They were trying to portray him for sure. And so who I thought could be a better. Adorable door is Steve Carell. Okay. Yeah. With Steve Carell doing in two thousand and five. I'm glad you asked Janet. In two thousand and five that was the year that the office premiered. Yep. That would have been linked probably around September that summer of two thousand and five the forty year old virgin came out. Okay, choice. Thank you. I think that's I think she would have been good. I you know, I really like to see you in McGregor and Steve Carell in a movie together. Yeah. Absolutely. There is. Anyone listening can convene that happen. Get on. Yeah. I think they would have a fun chemistry for sure. Oh, and also just like on Steve Corrales IMDB page, I found this, quote, I found that after I had already picked him. He is once said, I have no idea where my pathetic nature comes from, if I thought about it too long. It would depress me. Steve carell. Yeah. Pecan plea like that dorky kind of character. Really? Well I've seen him play before. What are your old virgin, plaintiff? Right. That's true. That's true. That's true. Yeah. 'cause I only seen that, once but he is he's like a nerd, right? Yeah. Not moving. And then even in praise. Stupid love, which is kind of similar to this. Right. Forget. That's right. Yeah. Exactly. So then, like, you know, the there he's kind of being made over in here he'd be kind of being made over it. But anyway, so we've seen him do it. And he does it very well. That's true. Pick louis. Yeah. Thanks, and like these Corrales so much. Yeah. Yeah. Don't forget, replied casting is a member of the podcast network.

Takeaway, Eric, Eric from pop cycle pop culture, connections podcast on our show. We discussed just how incestuous pop culture really is.

So you can find us via helper to podcast network dot com or wherever you get your podcasts and. How about you? What were your casting? Well, I really decided to stir up some shit with Lange. I thought you know what if the Sony executive didn't want certain people cast, then I'm just going to go the opposite way these people off did for you. So for the hitch character for will Smith's character I recap him with Wayne Brady. Oh, and you know what I'm gonna like, say a little something about we because. Yeah. Lake mock me all you want. I don't care if I found like a nerd right now. But I really like Wayne Brady, and I feel like he is so Howen teed. When get he's also really underrated. And he's been around for so long like when you look at, like what he's done in his career, and like the talent that he has, I just feel like he should be like a bigger star than he actually is. And I think he would have been really good in this rule. He's funny. And the one thing that I didn't really like about Will Smith was late. The thing. I like Will Smith as the fresh prince, like really funny on that show Will Smith. I think can be funny. But, like I didn't think he was funny in this role. Right. Not at all. Do you know what I mean? Like I was watching it, and I on only laughed twice during this moving that was it. That was it. I don't mean laugh twice the one time that I left was the dance scene, where us with Kevin James, Kevin James is showing him his dance moon. I laughed during that scene. And then I laughed when Will Smith accidentally kick even. In the face falls off the jet. Ski it those were the only two times. I laugh I laughed at that too, because I even though I had seen it I had forgotten that came so unexpectedly when he Dr off the jet ski I definitely have to get. Maybe it's considered low brow humor. I don't know. But like I thought was kind of funny, I thought I thought. But for the most part like I didn't really think that we'll Smith was funny. So I thought Wayne Brady would have been good. I thought he would have maybe done a better job. At least I would have liked to have seen what he could've done with. I like that. And I think that like one word that comes to mind for Wayne Brady, as well with me is smooth. And I think that character needs to be smooth. Yeah. I would have. I think he would've done a good job for the character. Sarah malice, which was played by even Mendez I- recast, Lucy Liu. Oh, okay. I'm like a big Lucy Liu fan. She's another one. I really think that she is underrated. Like, you know she did Charlie's angels. And then she kind of after that, she didn't really like she's still worked she. She was in the kill Bill movies. I don't know if those were pre Charlie's angels, or post, I can't remember, I think the post that I'm not positive. Yeah. I think post to. Yeah, like I just think that she is really good at playing like those stuffy kind of independent woman character than this character, Sarah, kind of exuded, right? And I could've seen her pull that off. And also, if excecutive thought that of black lead with a white. Lead. Like imagine what they would have thought with a black lead in an Asian leak into those and five would not have been. Like, maybe if they had been a little more creative in their costing they always assume that people aren't going to accept these things. And it's like, well, how do you know until you try? I just think it's unfortunate that like certain people, maybe don't get offered certain roles because these really sort of antiquated ideas that these so-called executives, right? Yes. Now, let me ask you this. Because I think those are both good choices. But I'm having trouble. Picturing them together. That was one thing. I would like I would love to see those two little pumpkins together. I think would've looked so cute together, Lucy Liu and Wayne Brady. Yeah. Okay. Looking, they just do so different want them to get together and real. If anybody can make that happen. Go for it. A movie with them like a Netflix movie. Yeah. Wayne Brady, Lucy Liu. That's a bra. I would watch that. I've maybe I'd be the only one watching it. I don't know. But I want you to for sure out of curiosity. Wayne brady. And I really liked those two. I think they're both so good. Okay. And then Albert Brennaman, who was played by Kevin Jayme. I've never really like I don't really care about Kevin James, like I don't dislike him, but I also don't like him that much either. Like I think he's just kind of there and to be honest, you're gonna laugh, but I couldn't even remember his name at I like making note, and I wrote down Paul blurs. I was like, I knew that wasn't his name. I hope so. Yeah, he called word. He was on king of clean the Lia remedy. He was in the documentary when he was a mole Cup. Oh my God. I that's what I had down as Paul blunt is. And I was like what is his name? I can't remember I'll have to Google it after. So I just broke Paul blurt down. I just kind of lake. I don't know. I used to watch king of queens, too. I used to like that show when it was on with funny, but I don't know. Like I don't think much of him necessarily as an actor I kind of feel like he's I don't know if people are gonna get madder if I'm gonna offend you by saying this, but I kind of see him as being on the same level as Adam Sandler in offense. Do. Do. No. I'm kidding. It's fine. I don't know. I think that they are Sally's. You'd really highly for being funnier than they actually, are you? Or maybe that's just my opinion. Here's the thing. I mean both of those have proven that their box office gold in a lotta ways. Right. So there are people who clearly do think they're that funny. Of course you and I on best people. But I'm I'm like, I'm not in that target audience yet, for who those actors appeal to. But yes, I see what you're saying. You're gonna laugh who knows who. Him with Alfonso Ribeiro. Tarleton. Hers. And maybe it was because I was thinking of Will Smith. Carlton. And I was thinking that I have. But I was like, you know, I was like, yeah. Like I think why not he could totally play the door. I made this like a monkey national cash. And so, I was like, yeah, I thought you know, I'll be religious. Let's face it. He wasn't nerd as Carlton. Thanks, ready. And he could never get a girl and I and he's funny as like I think he could have laid it. Well and played it funnier. And I would have liked to seen him and Wayne. Opposite one another. I will say this. Like I did not think that Will Smith had any chemistry at all with even Mendez, okay? I thought you were going to say he didn't have any chemistry with Paul blurt, which I would agree with. Well Smith had better chemistry with called lurks than he did with even Mendez in my opinion. Hm. I bought the were like I thought they were funny and believable. But like I couldn't by Will Smith and even met if I was like there's nothing really nothing happening here on screen. Like, I don't know. I wasn't feeling it. Yeah. The bantered certainly felt forced in my opinion. It did. It felt very forced to totally. But so here's my thing. I think a Mendez played it well enough that I bought that she was slowly falling for him, even though you know, she generally closed off. So from her side, I bought it, but yeah, I don't know. I'd have to think about it a little more in terms of like their chemistry to each other. I think I liked even Mendez in the character. I really thought she did well as the character she played it really well. And she was totally believable as the slake, you know, smart career oriented woman, you know, whatever, but I just seems with Will Smith. I was like I'm out buying to she. I don't know. I wasn't buying it. I wasn't feeling the, the Kellyanne tater. That's but I have to say, I did not buy the friendship between him and Kevin Jane's, really. Okay. When he goes to the speed dating and he's like, L Brennaman is a good man. A great man. And I'm like where do you get that from like you? I don't know. I just I didn't buy most of softening in this movie. Oh, those are my picks. Okay. You know what I would love love love to see Wayne Brady and Lonzo Ribeiro together? Yeah. Yeah. That'd be super funny. Okay. So I do have a couple of interesting facts that I found about the film. So I don't know if you know this, but even Mendez was in the Will Smith video Miami from honor how many years before, yes, she is in a car and she mouths Bienvenido on Miami when the heart yet, but apparently he didn't remember her when they started working together on this movie. Exactly. It will be other thing. I wanted to mention is right near the beginning, when there's a tabloid, I guess it's like a Mendez paper where it says that Allegra Coleman's boyfriend is cheating in. There's a picture of him that picture is of Alexander Skarsgard. Okay. I was like, oh my God, that Gars gar that high. Yeah. I thought that was appropriate since we've talked, but him a bit on the podcast. And do you know the other female leads that were considered? Now I didn't se
