The eyes of tammy faye came up a couple of weeks ago. During our fall movie preview. You have seen the movie and as i alluded to. We lived through the eighties. The bakers were inescapable in popular culture. At seem does the movie convinced that there is more there was more to jim. Tammy faye than we remember or what we saw in parodies from the time i mean it had to for me because my only point of reference was jan hooks portraying. Tammy faye bakker. On saturday night. Live visiting the church lady. I think phil hartmann was was jim baker. Actually so i didn't really know much beyond that of the story. I mean would have been a little kid at that time. And so yeah this was interesting to get some of the background info a lot of it drawn from the two thousand or two thousand two documentary of the same name. The eyes of tammy faye haven't seen that one. But from what. I understand both at end this i can attest to very much rehabilitation projects. You know to to say that there was more and of course there was more to to this woman than what we saw on saturday night. Live or in news. Reports jessica chastain as tammy faye is going to make you believe that no matter what. She is the powerhouse force in this film. The reason why i liked it. I think overall as a movie.

"saturday night live" Discussed on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn

"Show the cast ducks. The writers are stupid them all boring so live from the bronx. Y'all shut up. I'm sorry. Do i hit send or just good cardi. Your music has changed my life. It honestly inspired me to say what's on my mind so thank you go ahead. I am a fan but maybe also your best friend or pretty much the same. Can you please go gimme some. I'm sure unless you want me to stay no. I have a lot of very short songs. That i've written now. I'm always amazed. At how how. Y'all keep it funny after all of these years and i imagine that that part of that is because you have new cast members coming in you have. The host rotates every single week. Could you talk a little bit. Just about What that process looks like how you all come up with your various ideas. Yeah i mean it's kind of the thrill of the show is that every week is different because there's a new host and see kind of never known what you're gonna get and it's a great source of inspiration every week But yeah the process for making. The show is kind of about finding new ideas so like monday. We pitch an idea to the host end to the writer's room. It's kind of just a way to get the juices flowing and kind of see the hosts vibe like kind of you know when you get into a room with someone in your like. Oh you're kind of taller than i thought or sexier than i thought or whatever you know like and so then you're like okay. Maybe i'll write them that way. And so that's part of it and then tuesday. We write those sketches wednesday. We read them than some get chosen and then thursday and friday we rehearse in film the the videos and then saturday we rehearse again then do dress rehearsal. And that's the show so it's a really quick process And so you learn to be really free and not precious with your ideas as far as like they're gonna come they're going to go. You gotta think of more okay last week sucked but it's over and we're onto a new one here we go again It helped me a lot to be less. Loosen my grip on my own ideas as we as we wrap up. I'd love to know how both the experience of the three seasons on shrill and your time on snl have like influence or impacted. How how you plan to like chart your path in your career going forward like would have these experiences like taught you about yourself for the type of storytelling that you wanna do. It's tommy lot so much And i think it the main thing it's taught me as to trust my gut to kind of take it one hour at a time. Because i think there's so much uncertainty in really most businesses but particularly in entertainment. Because it's like. Oh are you doing this. Are you doing that. You're auditioning for something. It's just it can be hard to grab onto something. And i think for me. It's just like i gotta take it minute by minute so. I don't have like a huge trajectory that i'm trying to hit and i don't feel a ton of pressure. I kind of just trying to be inspired creative and follow those kind of notion. Cnn and i mean i loved writing shrill and it was extremely cathartic. And so i think there's those are themes that are naturally important to me and i'll continue to ride around them but i would love to come at them from different angles or different perspective. And i think. I'll just continue to do that. And see where it takes me. Is there a mantra or like a quote that like has stuck with you that you use as a as a way of like just like figuring out how to move through the world that you were open to share called this my mantra but i do think it's something that i like. Go back to a lot is especially because at snl there's so much nerves in there so much adrenaline in it's live and you're put into these extreme scenarios. Is that the thing that i often return to is sort of like you know how to do this. You know how to do this. You know like. I know how to get on stage and make people laugh or i know how to i can do it. I've done it for close to fifteen years now. I know how to do this and it really helps. When i feel kind of freaked out even in making decisions about you know projects to say no to or yes to. It's kind of like going back to just checking in with that. Inner voice and being like you know what to do. You know how to do this. I love that. I love that. And i think that's a perfect place to ended everybody. Who's listening make sure you watch.

"saturday night live" Discussed on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn

"Bullseye jesse thorn. our guest. Eighty bryant is the star of hulu shrill and a veteran cast member on saturday night live. She's being interviewed by trail anderson. I'm going to ask you about snl in a minute. But i. i've been interviewing a lot of like artists and creatives over the last year in so many people have talked about how you know. How the lockdown. How you know having to stop everything particular us. This industry Was deeply clarifying for them in their art in how they go about or how they go about now doing the work that they do Is that a similar experience for you. Do you feel like you know this last year. And a half has has shifted anything in in how you wanna go about doing the work that you do. I mean definitely. I think we all hopefully are changed for the better in some way from this. It's i more protective and more boundaried about my kind of private time. You know time for myself time for my family and my husband and cause certainly you know i've been doing snl and shrill at the same time for almost four years now and it's not a healthy schedule and in a weird way. The show ending is obviously painful. And i will miss it very much. But i also think it's a big opportunity for me to protect myself better. You know and take care of myself and actually protect time for creativity and thinking over an idea longer rather than feeling like okay. I have the idea. I gotta type it up now it over. Let's get it going you know. There's there's more room for creativity in having a little bit of space to check in with yourself. What does doing as nell like. Give you or provide for you as an artist as a creative that. Perhaps you know doing series work. Does it let let you do or vice versa. Yeah i mean they're really different shows. They're really really different shows in. They're really different styles of performance. I mean sketch comedy is almost like clown work. You know it's big reactions and goofy voices and a crazy way or like dress me as a chicken. You know like a wonderful to do. You know it's like silly and less pressure in some ways and it allows me to like right into these fantastical situations And i love you know. It really is like a piece of who i am but i think shrill also really allowed me to kind of dig deeper and be more introspective and Perform things that i never would have performed me be on us and l. I mean certainly like scenes where i'm crying or or sex scenes was like whole new territory for me but actually think they made me better on. Snl and what i do at snl makes me better on shrill. They kind of feed each other in a nice way. I wanna play a clip from this past season of. Snl they a lot of like prerecorded filmed remotely. You know by the cast members in this bid that we're about to listen to our guests eighty ryan shares details from some of her actual childhood journals. Let's take a listen. At this point. I was nine years old. And what our nine year olds in love with horses popstars. No the answer is turtles. Okay and i loved turtles so much but not enough to learn how to spell the word and so down. hard on. Tur- tells her tells two tales tests but at the bottom here. I've made an important note and it's coming from a speech bubble from no one. But i won't eat them so don't think i was going to eat. My turtles skies. What was it like doing these types of sketches and things from your home or from your office. Oh gosh i mean. I'm not gonna lie. It was really hard. It was really really hard partially. Because i mean now i'm much better at setting up a microphone or setting up a camera or making sure it's lit in a way that's going to work for the show. Certainly that's stuff that i didn't know how to do and And also i mean those shows especially were like early early early in the pandemic and a few blocks from my house. There was also like refrigerated trucks for bodies and and sirens constantly and we lost a beloved beloved member of our crew. How wilner and many of our cast members in crew members were losing family members. So it was really like to realities at once which one is. I'm trying to fill myself in a goofy hat. That i found at the bottom of my closet and the other is the reality of what was happening. In how frightening it was also how much new york was sort of on the forefront of that and so it was really hard. It was really really odd. But i'm really proud of those shows. And i think because of the circumstances we all wrote things that i don't think we ever would of written because of these weird parameters that were brought on by the pandemic and so i feel really proud of those and also. They were an incredible incredible effort by our crew. I mean they were downloading files from a bunch of us who had taken improv classes. We didn't know what the hell we were doing. So they were explaining everything to us and they deserve a gold medal for that. It was like patience. Absolute patients personified. Do you have a favorite sketch from your your time on the shell or a favorite character because you play some recurring characters as well. Oh gosh i mean i honestly. I've been on the show so long. It's hard because i almost feel like there's different phases or stages where it's like. Those early wins meant so much more. Having my first piece on that. I wrote or or some of those things what am i. I pre-tape Videos that i ever wrote was Do it in my twin bed which was like a music video that we did with all the girls and it sort of started this trend of doing these like all girl music videos for snl and basically it was just a chance for us to like act like pussycat dolls and strut around and say stupid stuff. But i was really proud of those in those early days because it just felt like i was at least finding my way on the show but then you know there's other things later in the show that it's like you kind of changes every couple of years. I want to play one of the this is from the episode when cardi b. Was there and you you play a character. I guess you play yourself. But then an alter ego version of yourself called eighty and we play that quick shout out for snl instagram who. Yeah of course. Okay so what should i say. Say saloon the fans okay. Stop asking me about to.

"Nick over milkshakes. How would you possibly know that bananas going to be better than s'mores. I'm just very good at picking stuff. like your boyfriend. Wow sorry no. Fear did short stead. Good thing is we broke up so he's gone. Sorry no it's actually. I'm actually me and my girlfriend of six years just broke out. So i'm i'm sorry this okay. Are you seeing anyone else. I mean yeah but not really like kinda dating. But also i think i just wanna be single painting is. It's a lot each season of the show. You all delve more in deeper into anne's love live In that fran as well for that matter why was it important. You know for you In for the teen to explore kind of those aspects of the character's lives as deeply as you all did well. It's deeply attached to body image. You know a relationships really often defined how we feel about each ourselves and our bodies the way they look. And i think you know in the first two seasons annie's sort of kind of constantly breaking up or getting back together with this one partner and in this new season. She's she's having to put herself out there again. And i think for a fat woman. It's a different ballgame because there are sections of the population. Who will even consider dating you. Because you're fat and And so there's that kind of fear in approaching any person and so that's something we wanted to explore of like kind of the trepidation and reading signals. It becomes even more mixed sometimes when you have sort of a a difficult view of yourself And i think it's a great way to show personal growth. Just within the arc of the story makes me think of something you said earlier when you're talking about Balancing the the comedic elements with the kind of more serious dramatic elements. What were the conversations like between you. And the other folks on the writing team about the tone and and the the the kind of thrust that you wanted audiences to take away from what they were seeing on screen. I think early conversations. We decided we wanted to have a pretty ground tone partially because you know not entirely but a lot of fat characters that you see are kind of like extremes like cartoonish extremes you know where like especially in the romantic scene. I feel like it's a little bit of a miss piggy syndrome. Where it's like. She's going to jump on the man and crush him and that her sexual interaction and we were really wanting to give a fact character dignity in those spaces and keep her human. Keep it grounded and so we found a really grounded tone but comedy is also a huge part of who. I am in a huge part of pretty much. Entire ensemble is like a comedian some form so it was really wonderful. 'cause even in our serious scenes i feel like part of the rhythm of the show. We have a lot is like if there's kind of an intense moment often there's a huge joke at the end that's kinda gonna pull you out of it or or in big goofy moments. Something at the end of that moment might feel a little more grounded and it's a little bit of it's how real life is. Honestly i mean there are funny moments even at funerals and that's sometimes hard. I think i would. I was thinking of when you were speaking. Was you know particularly about the ways in which we've seen fat characters before as these extremes. The movie that immediately came to mind for me was orbit right which is antic comedy but like all of the comedy is about. You know the woman's size riot and and how how much of a issue quote unquote that is for other people around her and it is deeply in a lot of ways. It's dehumanizing right of people. You i often think about this with incomes to like. Lgbtq character sometimes particularly black characters. Were often only the comedic relief on. Yeah screen right and never have the ability to be fully realized you know people with multidimensional lives in things like that. And i think that is similar with characters as well. There are these tropes Characters are supposed to to fit in In when you start stepping outside of that it is. It is a super simple thing like you. You mentioned earlier but also in the grand scheme of things is is is radical or revolutionary by a lot of people's terms. Yeah and i mean. I think it's something that it's it's exactly what you're saying where it's like it becomes dehumanizing or or it makes people who are real people into caricatures and ultimately it's lazy writing it really is just lazy writing like sink a little harder you know. That's that's an it's not. A reflection of who these people are. Fat people are having meaningful relationships. They are having sexy sex. You know same with lgbtq characters. It's like it is. I think it's the great difference of having the people who have lived the stories in the writer's room and it changes things so drastically from then other people's perceptions which often are sort of stereotypes or or these cartoonish versions of of people that really probably have never existed right. Is there a an episode or like an onset memory that you know now that the series is over that sticks with you in out in your mind like particularly a great time or something that just you can't get out of your head when you think back about the journey of shrill. Oh gosh i mean. There's lots of really wonderful. I think the one that. I really remember that people ask me about a lot. Is the pool party fat. All fat babes pool party in the first season which was really like a very special experience because it was sort of like actually just attending a pool party surrounded by fat people who are all in swimsuits and living comfortably and it was really thrilling to be around and you know the folks that worked background that those two days they were they were kind of living at themselves. You know and like dancing and eating and hanging out between takes and i think the mood was so infectious. I mean some of our crew was like in tears at the monitors because it really just felt very free. That was the whole setup for me to tell you what my favorite scene is by the way. Which is i think it's from the first season. I think we have a clip of a portion of the scene in which your character anne Like a lot of women or black folks or other folks of color online is getting like harassed controlled by this guy and anne ends up finding the troll going to his house knocking on his door and.

"saturday night live" Discussed on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn

"It's a really sensitive topic for a lot of people you know. Actually most people have strong feelings about their own body or resenting it and i think for many people the body positively movement has been very helpful and i think for other people at it hasn't been enough for it. It leaves lacking or it doesn't recognize the people who need to be recognized. There's so many pieces of it. And i think certainly lindy's book and her writing and that influence on our show really was clarifying but i also think it was helpful at least for me to just be like. We're telling one person story this one characters experience of of this and and that made it easier to approach because there is so much to unpack there and it. It's so different for so many people. But i think we're reaching a moment where now a lot of people have a sense of body positively whatever that means to them I certainly feel a desire to go deeper than that if that makes sense like go. Further than just body positivity in trying to figure out you know our internal biases. And all those i mean. It's we're doing this at a lot of places right now. Is looking a little bit deeper. And i think that's what we tried to do on the show especially in his third season. We're dealing with like internalized fat phobia in those kinds of things. Even though she's a fat woman. It's it's a start. Well that's one of the interesting things right about what you all have done with. This show is we. We get the opportunity to go on a journey with anne in terms of our relationship to to her body her relationship to other people's bodies and the various kind of complex conversations that an individual right has to have with themselves as it relates to that. Was that intentional. From your standpoint as as a writer and wanting to have this conversation to be able to to show the complexities and sometimes the contradictions right. That we have in these in these ways he. Yeah i mean. I think you're really hitting right on it. Which was like we tried to especially the first season. 'cause it was only six episodes. The first season was very short. We really tried to simplify you. Know and there couldn't be like a million b. and c. plots we kind of had to make it like a character study and so that really changed. I think sort of the focus of the show is a whole where it it really is about watching one person try to transform and i think she really does and becomes more assertive. I also think it's about her friendship and many other pieces but ultimately it was sort of like we're going to follow this sort of persons transformation in that. That was what we were trying to track. I love the character in part because she's also a journalist. She's working at this. You know all wheatley. Opt weekly paper. And i love asking actors in particular about like how they prepare to to play a journalist if they prepare at all. Because i'm obviously being vain. If you can't tell so. I would love to know what did the broader prep process. Look like for you. In terms of like delving into anne figuring out what her particular corks might be. Would that process look like for you. Yeah i mean at least as far as trying to become a journalist and thank you for your approval because that means everything you know. I was really lucky because lindy west. Who is you know has written for all weekly papers and has written for the new york times and she was also a writer and executive producer as well and so. I had like my specimen right next to me and the best way and so you know she was probably my number one source for being like how would you even approach that or would you ever even ask this kind of question and And we also would return to a lot of her old writing from when she was doing that kind of all weekly type stuff. She went to a strip club buffet and wrote a review and then we wrote an episode based on that we did a lot of sort of returning to her previous work. But we also. I mean portland's still has that kind of scene. They have all weekly that still going up the mercury and we went and visited their offices and it was really inspiring. And you see how it's sort of a community that's really strong but also struggling to keep hold in this kind of digital world and then you know as far as like developing her and other ways i certainly. Was you know. Kind of thinking about who i used to be. Maybe more in my late teens and early twenties as far as like self hatred or like little things. I would do about like touching my shirt to make sure it wasn't clinging to my body or things like that using those pieces to kind of put together and builder back up. Yeah you mentioned the ensemble in you know your other co stars who are amazing. I wanna talk just a little bit about lally who plays your best friend and roommate fran Throughout the entire series first of all love. Her thinks she's amazing. But the chemistry between you two. It's super magnetic. There are plenty of laughs that you all give us an plenty of tears as well. Could you talk about like the other cast members that help you put this all together. Oh i mean. I think from what we were talking about earlier to me. That's like everything is like the chemistry in the ensemble but lally petit particular. I kind of always think of her as my one. True scene partner. You know because the boyfriend characters come and go but she was always there and she is so incredibly talented. She's she's such a funny comedian and can improvise with me. Which is huge. But she also has a major handle on these tiny tiny move she can do with her face to make something so emotional or so painful. And i think she and i were both really suited for that free each other where we were kind of up for anything. Would we would improvise in dramatic scenes and comedic scenes and I don't know that the show would have ever kind of picked up steam that it did without her because they think there is kind of a believable chemistry there. Because we're really really close in real life and that makes it very very easy and sometimes it made it really emotional to kind of play some of these moments. We've got even more with eighty.

"saturday night live" Discussed on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn

"Classic called do it on my twin bed to the pharmacy and mom last few years. Eighty has also started in britain for her own show. Shrill tro is based on the memoir of the same name by lindy west shrill just wrapped up its third and final season on hulu and it has earned eighty an emmy nomination for best lead actress in a comedy series on the show bryant place any eastern a writer living in portland and struggling to find her voice. She's got an on and off boyfriend who frankly should probably be just off any is also fat. She says it herself in the show's pilot unlike pretty much every other tv show. Anybody isn't treated like a problem to overcome. It doesn't really define the show either instead. Weight and body image. Come up on the show. The way these things show up in real life. Insensitive comments from well meaning family members insults from strangers moments of crushing self-doubt. And sometimes even doctors in this scene from the show's third and final season eighties character. Annie has just visited the gynecologist for an annual checkup. She has a new doctor. This time and after the exam the doctor shares a somewhat out of the blue recommendation gastric bypass surgery. The doctor hasn't run any blood tests. It's obvious she assumed her health. Based on her appearance in any is at first shocked she didn't say anything but after the appointment she finds the doctor in the parking lot. And that's when she decides to give that dr a piece of remind one important visual cue. The doctor is wearing ear. Buds in doesn't hear a word. Andy says hey. Hey that was. You're gonna look at me for ten minutes and tell me cut my stomach out. How is that medically ethical. You're a bad person. You're a bad person you. oh yes. We're coming in hot there with a clip from shrill starring our guest today eighty brian. Thanks so much for joy guys. Oh thank you for having me. I'm very excited. So i wanted to start off with that clip in particular because i think it captures just like the tone the energy of the series so well for the folks who for whatever reason have been living under a rock or don't have a hulu subscription and haven't seen it yet but to get started. I'd love to if you can give give folks just an idea of what the series is about why they should be watching it. Yeah i mean the show is about a young woman who is trying to change her life but not change her body and she's a fat woman who i think has spent most of her life literally trying to shrink herself and figuratively to and so. I'm pretty much in the first season in the first episode. She has kind of a breakthrough of like. I'm gonna try and live in a different way. And that's a lot of this series. Is her trying to find kind of her own. Self confidence of from within her rather than like external validation. How did the opportunity. Just i presented itself for you to not only star in the series but produce and write it as well. It was kind of a weird chain of events but in a nutshell i had worked with elizabeth banks when she hosted. Snl you know several years ago. Now and I heard that she optioned the book. Shrill which i was a huge fan of the show is based on shrill which is written by lindy west and i love the book. It was one of the first times. I read a book. And i was like. Oh i've had every experience in here. I relate to this on so many levels. And so when i heard that elizabeth auction the book i kinda called agents and was like what she making you know. Do we know what they're gonna make. I would love to be involved and weirdly. They were sort of like. Oh well we just got a call from elizabeth's company and they were calling to see if you'd be interested so it was like this weird be moment and then yeah. I kinda came on board. I love that would excite you most about like the potential of like adapting the book into a series. Well i think the book had a lot of really simple ideas that felt sort of radical. You know and i think for me. I was like oh that just feels like the heartbeat of a story. That would totally translate to television. And i felt like i knew this character because at different points in my life i was her. You know and and especially for you. I had been writing and producing television through. Snl in sort of this like mini version of making a sketch which is much like how you make an episode of television. It's kind of the same thing but really boiled down. And so yeah. I felt like this was a kind of in my wheelhouse in like a place where i would feel comfortable to try and put those things to the test did you. I mean obviously we all know your brilliant from snl but did you. Did you have any like trepidation. Like stepping stepping up to be the the main person right the first on the call sheet with this project. Yeah you hit the nail on the head. I mean. I think really all might work before. This had been completely about ensemble. And i think this show has an incredible ensemble as well but certainly like any is the lead character. And i'm in nearly every scene and so that was a huge adjustment but it was also a really good thing to sort of push me forward and make me take it on and And to understand that you know. I was a leader in this capacity and like an executive producer. I was making decisions that would affect our entire crew down to the pa's and that matter to me and was important so it was a really wonderful challenge in that way. Yeah yeah and one of the things. I love about the series from that very first episode. I think we get an idea of you. Know what. Anne is going through which. She's deciding that she's not going to tolerate anymore. Right in terms of like how people make assumptions about her health about her body about how she moves through the world. And i remember i feel like when the show came out i initially. You know we were in that moment where there was a lot of conversation happening in pop culture about potty positively and about anti fatness in our society. I'm wondering you know now. Three three seasons later. How you feel like the the conversations in the tone in the perspective brought up in the show. reflects or fits into that broader conversation. That we're still having right about the ways in which society in folks are often you know anti-fat and fat phobic in a lotta ways without sometimes thinking about it. Yeah i mean. I think.

She hasn't done enough outside of us. Now, this one's one that you guys might be able to debate a little bit Jim Belushi. Yeah. So I was wondering if he was gonNA come up because I've. There's been some movies that I really liked. Jim Belushi MR destiny was a good one. Mr Destiny was really good but I think he's in the shadow of his brother. So that's a little tougher. Committed L.. Movies I like him I would I would give him a yeah because I think he's a solid guy. Yeah I don't know if he was good in certain live but I certainly think he had a decent career I would say, yes, he had his own Sitcom. It lasted a long time whether it was good or not. And I I can't I'm not gonNA argue the outside of SNL at all because I think he's done at a fine career. It's the it's that he was only on SNL for two seasons and it remember on and his and his brother his brother died you know right before he joined her right way. Anyway, so is eighty three to eighty five when he was on. So I think that's a good debate gary that I'm thinking of his post S. L. O. Career. Yeah. Giving him in there. But if I can't think of one character he played or one skiff he's in his Serta live. Is that necessarily? Should he count I think that's why we would exclude him because. Has To be both. A run into some other people on this list that are giant stars that were nothing on us and l., and according to what is was an earlier parameter. Wise. They would. They would read good point. That's an interesting idea. Those that you know snl probably gave him the springboard you know they went on their did get a whole lot but got their face off there. Then when they got off of US and they'll they were successful was brother probably gave him the springboard well, yeah he did I mean that's for sure. He was in a he was in a lawyer show to that was set in Vegas. That only lasted one season I remember really liking him in that. More dramatic role yeah. Good stuff. The my niece was on that show. So obviously, the next one is going to be John. Belushi and..

By that point six one five seven three seven nine nine eight six six one five seven three seven w w TM Donna, you're up next. Hi, donna. What's up done? Was just gonna. Consider the former almanac. A resource of daylight saving time information. I would because I consider them a resource as far as what the actual. Forecasts is going to be there more right than the weatherman. Yeah. They've been around a long time. So I found the article that pointed out that Ben Franklin implemented the concept in seventeen eighty four as a joke, and it didn't it caught on a couple more attempts. Sequentially in a hundred years later and finally in. Fifteen the Germans initiated it to save time during the war World War One British initiated it the next year. And then the United States followed in nineteen eighteen and then they also implemented the standard time act for the time zone. Across the country and finally in nineteen twenty they dropped it. And then the that's because they said cows don't pay attention to clock that was the farmers complaint. They said the cows don't pay attention to. During World War Two. It was started. And does again, of course, exists today. And just so you also had the other tidbits was the only countries don't don't have to follow DSP is Arizona. As well era. Zona? Doughboy doesn't like. My really good watchdogs. Arizona hawaii. I'm Hawaii Northern Mariana Islands and the US Virgin Islands did not comply with. Yes. And they seem to be doing just fine. Don't they? They like it that way. But does it say why we do it? I mean, it says when we did it. But it is it the did they ever give a reason why we did this. In light. Saving measures during World War. One fuels has a few. I guess because you have to provide more lighting during. Okay. Hard times during the nineteen fifteen supplies for fuel weren't tremendous. This reminds me of though, I mean, there was a which war was it. We had tax you, folks. Remember this? We had a telephone tax that had been on the war on that. Since the Spanish American war something like that ended. It just went away in the last ten years or so, but it had been there to fund the war and it never went away. And people never questioned anymore. They won't what does this. I don't know. Yeah. KYW owns the snow close. I mean, I don't know what they said. But it was just it was ridiculous. We do so much not only in government, but in business and in our daily lives just because that's the way it's always been done. And I have no problem with tradition. If tradition makes sense. Phil we liberals I didn't want to do with the constitution because that's a different thing. I mean, we have a way to change that if you want to change that. But this is ridiculous that we do daylight saving time. And I know that sounds funny. Some of you, folks. But that is correct. We got corrected by the vast staff daylight savings time is daylight saving time. But anyway, whatever it is. It doesn't make sense to do it. The reason we started this because to legislate in Tennessee who want to who wanna firmly put us on daylight saving time. And I think it'd be great one of the other listener daylight savings standard time, or whatever I just the changing of the clock. Just never made sense. To me. Randy you're up next. Randy what's up? Hey, wanted to mention to your some of your listeners might not be aware that person vogue island. I mean that actually ties into the nights temblor. I mean, some of those artifacts that they have found their dated back to that time period net ties with enter code, and that would be pretty fascinating to find out if they actually came later in the fifteenth sixteenth, century or whatever. So I just wanted to. My favorite. So they haven't really found anything everything they found that I cross or whatever it was, you know, supposedly date tested back to that time and a few other little things, you know, that. It's a big dig in that that's not gonna produce much more. I don't think my favorite my favorite stride program on the history now though is project blue because my uncle retired from Wright Patterson air force base, where they were supposed to be hurting aliens. Uh-huh. What what was it going project blue book, it's based on true events, you know, Wright Patterson air force base in Dayton, Ohio is where I think they were supposed to take from bras, well or something, but there's a lot of weird stuff that happened about. It's pretty fascinating interesting. They've had to episodes on Tuesday nights that. Yeah. Project blue book interesting. I'll check that out.

I think we all whole host of those stories, and then we start nickname and people. You know, based on based on whatever creative juices reflect there on Twitter, the problem. The problem was what you had was you had a mix of people who quite obviously were using an inherent bias and their judgment. I don't disagree with you.
