"Give little time for the child within you. Don't be afraid to be young and free under the locks and throw away the keys and take off issues and sex and run you Jordan Jesse. Go Jesse Thorn America's Radio Sweetheart Morris boy detective Jordan. I'm is are crossed My my lids are shaking right. My throat is scratchy. Are you getting the famous? Are you getting the famous ghostbusters? Blowjob Aykroyd received in the movie ghostbusters. Those are the symptoms of the famous ghostbusters. Blowjob the number one supernatural blowjob and comedy pulled from the last five years. I've just had sorry okay. Our guest is sorry. I couldn't keep saying is you are cast on the program Comedy writer of a longtime friend of this program acquaintance. We're working on his special but as yet unannounced project with our own Jordan Morris that you'll hear an announcement very soon but not. Yeah now tonight. Not Not now but soon but soon not soon. Sarah. We've wet your whistle. Oh Hi hoping to wet their whistle whistle. Wet Whistles damp moist. My my whistles wet with ectoplasms Jesse is pointing index. I liked it when he fucked the toaster and the equal because it was like the same joke but didn't fuck it toaster. He puts him no. He fucked a handful of slime. Remember the slime under city. That was bad vibes. Yeah I like the sequel. People don't if if the sequels on AMC and you turn it on it yet or on Sunday and you tune into it periodically. You'll go. Hey that goes much of sequel eight that I think that Once maybe like five years ago on this show I watched I had just watched ghostbusters for the first time childhood. And I mentioned on this show that I found it to be fun. Movie where almost nothing funny happens and But like I liked all the you know the different guys and all that different stuff. I like all that stuff but I just didn't think it was very funny and I probably spent three years making up for that. Like digging myself back up out of that hole. Yeah that's a good thing you brought it up and reopened the wound. Well let me just say now George. Yes that comments. I received really changed the way I looked at my experience and I disagree with me. Okay drag drag yourself king. Yeah I was I was sick and then I went out at and I think as apparent yourself and Sarah you were here with your with your husband and child this past week and they've just gone back to England as a parent yourself. I think you will know two major things that I went three major things that I went through this week. One is Your child just brings you illnesses. Yeah they're merrily a vehicle for illness. Petri dish of whatever gross things go. Yeah and they are extraordinarily powerful like. That's the thing like a child. You know my mom had Tiburco says a child. She's still knocking around. You know what I mean if she had to work out to. La's right now. That'd be the end of the story so they bring it to you and then you have it for a week and are miserable Delano. You're the one that responsibilities. Will you get something to the child shows? No symptoms of. Yeah they'll have like a half hour like running and you'll get like the plague. That's pretty much how it works. The second thing is despite the fact that I was sick my wife and I gotta sons should get disband bring home for daycare dropping her off at human daycare. I'm just looking for ways to appear more sad to the Scroll Kitty. Daycare taking action. That sounds a tour blitz cat. I really miss my cat spoil the apple. That's fine my with the cat. When you're he's very self sufficient people came. They came out. There was a there was a there was a family. You know Roy. Rotor people who pop in play with the cat feed the cat be ignored by the cat. He's very he's kind of. He's a distinguished gentleman he's like one of those dudes he just goes around going. Oh you can't say anything anymore. Like confused the world he's a real Julian fellowes he tell your co workers they look Nice Yeah you can't hold a door for anyone and he just seems like a house of loans you. You don't even have gingerbread men anymore. No gingerbread people and no one said that booty specific so you're not allowed to lay in the sunbeam anymore. Should've been adding. Catch it riff while we were doing Brian. Go ahead and add some catch. It isn't always looking apologetic at all times. Yeah that's his. That's his role in life. Like a dad disenfranchised dad of a cat. I miss him the second situation that I face that I imagine you probably faced. Is We had booked a babysitter three weeks previous for no special occasion. It was just a date night like we have been working on once a month having a babysitter and so we got the once a month babysitter for this past weekend and I was. I was like hacking and sweating and but I was like fuck it. I'm fucking fucking going on a date. So we'RE GONNA clean on my diarrhea and went after we went under. We saw Hannah. Gadsby her show a lot of fun. an eight afterwards which to eat after something when your parent is greatest. Looks starting at dinner. Nine o'clock there was a two. It was a to show night for Hannah Gadsby so it was. It was a six thirty. Seven o'clock show situation does so. Yeah it was more like nine o'clock dinner but that truly felt like one o'clock in the morning sure by the time everything was all settled. The babysitter was home The romance it concluded the diarrhea was cleaned up. Yeah it was about. It was about midnight when we went to sleep. Which for me extraordinarily late. And that's when I dealt with the third thing which is children. Don't care what time you went to bed the night before like my children are in are bright. Eyed Bushy tailed that. We've worked very hard to train them to wake up at six. Am but that been like very very hard work to get them even to that point and like at at six. Am there that they want? Their natural state is getting up earlier than that. Yes are you concerned that their farmers I would love it if my children were farmers and be great. Yeah Hell I'd love it. If my children had farmers insurance be nice. Yeah maybe if they took out as long as it's not one of those things one of those Menendez situations where they take out of big insurance policy on you and then murdered. Oh Yeah you don't want to get an invest. That might not be what happened. In the Menendez case say that tabloid thing from nine hundred ninety. Two you don't WanNa get Tonya. Harding all agree. We've all BOB. It'd we've all Bob it'd I'm noting politely. These were Monica Lewinsky fast accurate. You don't WanNa get accurate. I'm just typical things. Ask Still on the air. Yeah the judge Ito Dance Dance. In retrospect he definitely Jay Leno Joe in yes things I've seen on this. Yes so I'm I'm in a rough state but yet guys kept up. I'm going to drink three or four ounces of Coca Cola in my hand in for the homeless. I'm holding a drink called A coca-cola I'm going to drink three or four ounces of this and it's GonNa give me the power to make it through this recorded. What are you what are you going to do with the other onces? I was thinking I'd just pouring down my pants. Okay up your tire. Sort of expand my diary. It's just a clean the area. Plus you want to so can and Coca Cola. I don't know if you knew this Jordan but you know about You know about what happens when you add mentos to diet coke right. I don't the The you get those fountains from Youtube. Yeah Yeah same thing happens when you add regular coke to Acta plant show report on my Dick and see what happens. Jesse did not ask dinner early because I wanted to ask on the magic thing. Eight hundred still looking of drugs. Yeah in fact Jordan and I yeah. That's that's funny. Because I wanted. I wanted to check in about this on. Sarah's last visit Jesse a man who who for most of his life has never had a substance an altering take take a sip of champagne in a wedding toast or a sip of red wine if I was taking the sacrament at Church or but but never never anything more than that but now doubt. The review started taking medical marijuana for migraine purposes. When my idea was I should. I should just do it because it helps. People and migrants were too big of a problem not to to let this weird principle from when I was fifteen and in minor threat and minor. Threat WANNA get kicked out of minor. I wasn't technically in minor threat. I was a minor. I was one of the minor threat dancers MCI And yes and the last time that Sarah was here was when I had decided it was right when I had decided I already had already started you. You turned up and you announced you were the King of drugs and it was. It was exciting. Yeah you would you would tripping you. I meant yeah so I eat eaten a mint right trails. Yeah that was the debut of of King of drugs so this is my first of all Brian. Your Fire no-one talk to you and no one needs Komo was at. That was the episode. He's saving he saving me. Ryan loves listening. You're cleaning up your ghostbusters shit. All Week you don't need to get an episode number wrong and now I WANNA be clear. I'M GONNA make Brian Clean up the ghostbusters. You're talking about the diarrhea that had earlier. That's mixed with ECTOPLASMS. Yeah let's just try to keep that in the reality. Yes so comments about the unfunny movie. That is more charming than it is full of laughs rifts or funny yeah that's true there's some there's a few hats and dogs living together. I mean the reality is that all eighties movies are not funny. Police which is probably four. I watched FO- on. You're you're into the Non Gutenberg cattle. I couldn't leave. I think on five Miami Beach which I do not watch me and my family did all the first four on Netflix in Ri being beaten this week and spend a fucking joy really has the there is as we. The spins are some racism that don't hold up but are punished quite quickly. The homophobia doesn't really sort of Flyer. Tolan it because as far as the blow STA incidents in it go. There is a bar where some men just enjoy tangoing with each other and if you walk in they will make you tango with them and Mike. It was hilarious. Understand that. There's a gay panic thing that we're not the context of gay panic. It's just some fun GIG. This is just an enforced. Tangoing guys stashes in leather hats with you. Walk into that bar. They will grab you and they will with the I would love to be forced out of my shell like a man who doesn't like to dance with maybe but as a man who's always looking for a justification for the Rosie whole. He's constantly holding sort of embarrassing. But it's your thing but yeah so I I have done it a lot since this is my experience in my experience. So yes it is not. It is not fixed or really helped my migraine right but being high on drugs. Cool and let me ask you this. Yeah so when when Sarah was here maybe a year ago and just started using marijuana. Yeah and we all know marijuana's gateway right so have you moved onto using. Let's say nuke the futuristic drug Greg Robocop. Yeah I've used nuke a few hall. I'm also I also am completely obsessed with the stuff from the movie the stuff oh true. That's just be Yoke Zombie alien thing. Yeah Yeah Yeah I mean like a I on the one hand I. Ideally it would help my migraines Like I definitely think one hundred percent my preference would be for it. To have been yeah clinically beneficial medically useful with this horrible disability. That I live with almost every day of my life but it make switching Stephen Universal. Lomo I are cool man. Maybe a police academy movies. How does how does this child respond to? Michael winslow loved loved. Her favorite was definitely Bob. Goldthwait calm mild like if you could get a shit with him on. She would buy because she. He breaks the laws of physics which hers fucking Hilarious because quite straight and then he'll shelter a door and the door for over. You know as a funny thing on shows and he shouts loudly in another one and it guys glasses break. Yeah 'cause I were saying I'm I'm speculating. Based on your the messages you send around your cultural positioning. Sarah seem like the kind of person who would have a lot of fond feelings about Bobcat goldthwait based on his second career as a maker of cult films. I'm very excited about the scene. Obey will not seen in like a decade or so be able to send my child you know will best ad world's greatest dive sites. God bless my Robin Williams. God bless America and when she's like thirty and able to cope with it the sleeping dogs lie one stay at two different names. Yes no sleeping dogs Y to. That's that's about talk fuckers isn't it? It's a it's a beautiful idea to a woman In College were Boden experimental decides to blow her dog. And that isn't the story of the film. That's the thing happens that In about ten years later when she's talking to a boyfriend he says. Tell me anything we should Sarah Secrets. It's called the McGovern. Yes it's very much. Like the Temple of the holy grail. Paper puts it in a briefcase in handcuffs. Arrest the trunk. And she she she says you can tell me anything. Told me this thing from your part. And she tells him this and it's about their relationship unraveling massively because she should never have told her big secret so it was actually about relationships. And what you shouldn't shouldn't Sharon what you shouldn't shouldn't burnt with but it starts with a woman blowing a dog you don't say APP. It's a great film. I highly recommend it if you like. Sweet Indie Rome combs that start with then I think I can say I've never. I have no experience with Michael Winslow. Excuse me I have no experience with Steve Gutenberg. Right but we have all of the members had no experience kickoff. Wait Yeah Came on the savvy young America and you know he has a reputation here in the Los Angeles coming from unity and a great guy definitely matched with my expectation. Really Smart Sweet Funny Wonderful Guy in the movies of his that I watched I really liked. I will say when we were in college. Michael winslow blew off an interview on college. Radio Show Did Not show did not show about this actually the first time. We've said it publicly because I actually filled in form up a book Book Book Book Book Book Jordan. This is this is the time that was actually unrelated to Michael Winslow Gone Jordan recreating the time that Laurie Anderson to our show. Yeah lucky yeah look via onboard. Anybody and anybody could flake. Yeah Michael Winslow come on. Michael Winslow your Gig at the crow's nest and Santa Cruz is worth plugging. It is on a college radio station in Santa Cruz who are flakes. We had a lot of flakes time. We'd do in college. Michael Winslow Dee Dee Ramone ramone hall later. What was horrible. What was traumatic about someone flaking on our show when we were in college two things number one our show was on live so we would like and there was no producer booth. Qadri station so basically what would happen is I would run the board while we were doing the show and I would put on a song and just pick up the phone and call the person while the song was on. And if we didn't we'd give them a quick introduction and then you know get ready and then fade the song down and so because it was all going on live I. It was tariff the prospect of someone flaking on us with terrifying because we were one hundred percent not capable of filling the like not even close to like people think because they listen to this show and they're like well there's eighty minutes they were good at some point eighty minutes Jordan. Jesse go and nothing happened. Filling time must be the thing. They're best at this. This show is exclusively time for. I could go to the shops. Come back you guys to be just too but one here old man but like one super head. Oh yeah go Philip. Glass Lake One one hundred percent. I think the reason that we started doing interviews on this out of young America when we were college which like remains my job that I tell people at parties like I was at children's birthday party today. Someone asked me what I do for a living. I didn't say I host a podcast. That's impossible to explain. I'm a public radio host right like I interview are artists and musicians and twenty years later. We're still doing one hundred percent. The reason we started doing it and continued to do it through our college. Years was because we were confident that we could not fill the time without someone else to ask questions and just like put it on their plate like I think we had an idea that we were going to write jokes for the show. Sure we would write some jokes for the show like and then we would be like. Wow we work really hard to minutes. Yeah we got four minutes of jokes out of it now. We have fifty six minutes to film. Yeah I remember very vividly like the the horror when someone wasn't there Because if they weren't there that mean meant we had to do something to fill the hour. That is like a pit in my stomach that I still feel today. We did some flights you dip into the community announcements people know when the appetite jazz clubs meeting exactly two Sundays at two. Does the stripping Improv Group? Have a show coming up. I'm applying And so when Dee Ramone was supposed to be on the show I remember US calling and calling and we kept getting his wife at his house and every time we would get his wife who say oh you know we had arranged to do an interview with him Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah and. She would say oh yeah. He's at the grocery store which he may be at the grocery store that might have been a euphemism for doing hard drugs either way but I remember that at one point we just gave up and started playing his rap songs from his rap album as d king including probably the biggest hit on that that I remember the one that I hold closest to my heart. It's fully hits. It's like Atlanta's more sense jagged little pill. I recognize all these song. It's all hit. It's the crazy sexy cool of eighties right. Sir Eighties rap. There is a song on their called German Kid That includes the couplet so one day. Apparently Didi Ramone just showed up to the other. Ramones dressed as a rapper. Like in the Beastie boys era when a white person dressing as a rapper was still like a big news. He just showed up in announced. He was a rapper. Now and they're the part that I remember from German. Cad is a couple that goes did you ever see glider flying in the wind. I bet you didn't know I'm half German. That's yeah that's a myth thing. The motherfucker got bars got bars in German for a little while totally frenzied German. I forgot about that. Oh my God so we just played that cause out of the combination of being a fear of fear of having to fill the time and anger at him for not answering the. We'll show you. We'll we'll make people into your greatest embarrassing here. We could play some of your genre defining pop. Masterpieces Scher anything. The threes pop culture references. I have It sounds Chris This show yeah and Lost Boys and the film us. Now go after Moore sounds decrees. Yeah I think it's their other Santa Cruz things besides those three. It's a place where you can go to. You know maybe. Talk to listen to our college radio station To watch a greased up shirtless man play saxophone. That is very helpful to using a Gif Yup and to meet your double Ganger. Who's doing the same thing as you underground for some reason? Yeah I think some people are familiar with the Caveman. Who Rides the Gondola? The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. That is actually my buchinger. Just a big on the beach. Is there anything else apart from a big fund from the beach? Balk food store. Okay like where you can get like all natural granola by the pound. Yeah I would say like if you if you like a scoop of pumpkin seeds you need the butter of an unusual nut or seed is a great place but do yet to bring your own container. Sarah you buy cheap enough tropical areas. That might be something yeah you you visited La often yes but this is your family's first time visiting what sort of California stuff for you doing. We did the beach normally do when I'm here. So that was lovely so yeah. I just enjoyed being on a beach today much more than I had a funnel cake. Where'd you get the funnel on Santa? Monica Pierre Okay. I love finding new reaching batter. And that was a particularly good one. Cherry done. Your donuts Yorkshire Puddings Crow Nuts. Every kind of better. There is cakes shared passion of the English person in the American state fair goers exactly cone dogs. We're actually having a hard time getting our guests on the line kickoff but the the funnel cake is is from Joke Justice no fun okay is not a joke. There are not real. Like what like a deep fried twinkie a little bit. Yeah sure sure like some of those foods are like novel like deep fried pickle or whatever yeah not like people sliced but like fried whole pickle on a stick or whatever. Yeah that's those are examples of of goofs of battered Goo but no I think a final cake is a very very. It's not a cake. It's just a straughter of batter. Yeah with some like jam. The pitcher on the on the poster was fresh strawberries and cream. They served as like a pool of jam. Yeah it was like a pool of Germany Yorkshire Pudding for British listeners. And yet it's delicious. Yeah when you say British listeners. You're referring only to yourself Ben. Patriots Island listen. If it's maybe is not her episode I this repurchase people you know but it's pretty good though like anything any batter shouting true and former prime minister. John Major. That's true that's all the British people listening and Julian fellowes. The creator of outright is yeah and member of the House of Lords and actually thinks the period is a good idea. Yeah he did right school. Which stage musical. Yeah the the stage musical. Yeah I mean you wrote the songs we will rock you can. Yeah I I think that almost anything straight over the friars GONNA be like. Did you not like oh I loved the final. There's a point with the funnel this sort of when the cold night air hits the final can. It's like a race knowing it's going to get really discussing sweatier. The this is too hot to eat and this is disgusting. That's ninety seconds. I'm going to hate my when I when you can feel like a mouthful of fat. And you're jammed batted let you can as I can tell you the funnel cake Yeah it was. I just enjoyed the novelty of I did not know. There was a new method of the other day. I was driving home from work and I for some reason. I needed to curry favor with my family I'm a funnel cake. So Jason. Did you guys share? Funnel Kicker does funnel cake. My husband looked on in horror which he keeps me on the straight and narrow otherwise I would just be ambassador all the time. That's gross. I'm just GONNA eat these been yays husbands that's gross. I been U. S. And that's were we English. I'm an English person. Oh Yeah just a little aside and fans of the British person doing the American actress. What do you want you? Mcgregor and birds of prey. I don't know if anybody has seen this is it's gotTa Fun flirty. Little Lilt to it. I don't know what he's doing go. I don't know what is still it but I love it anyway. Go see birds of prey. Yeah can't tons of fun you'll McGregor. What's he doing? I in order to curry favor with my family. I stopped at Detroit. Stand near my house another and the Nice thing about my my local truro stand is that it is they. They make the jurors right in front of you. It's not a you know there are a lot of there are a lot of chorro vendors who are just rolling around you know Home Depot Utility tubful of Giro's. You've got a lot of those on the subway in New York. I've noticed and that's great phone. I've just thought of another one starting tight in the thank you. Yeah sorry carrying out a series. That isn't that a better deep fried sandwich. Oh yeah that's that's the sandwich dipped in egg French tasty than bit kind of battery. I Guess Anyway Sorry or Monte Cristo Monte Cristo I can always count on the Monte Cristo. So more than it's worth Brian much more than it's worth So cancel the podcast. So coding not any Chiro is a good Charles No ill words to speak of Jerusalem. Get A tro at Disneyland. It'll be pretty good but when they make it right in front of you really special. When they're squeezing it out of a tro shaped squeezer and cutting it with a pair of scissors straight into the fat and and then rolling in the in the sugar and sentiments over. But the problem is the smallest number of you can get at the Euro. Stand is seven. That's like a four dollar said if a four dollar five dollar and a ten dollar or something and then they'll also serve sell you like two hundred jurors for an event but the smallest number you can get is like seven maybe eight. It's a lot of Outnumber doesn't feel right for some reason. I brought it home. I brought up this bag full of Euros. That was basically like the size of you know It was like a an equivalent amount of euros to like a a large sour dough tortured. It was a full log shows and I took it home and I remembered that my wife recently figured out that she is allergic to wheat. Not Like deathly allergic. But she gets a lot of like sh. She had always had super sensitive. Scandicci gave up wheat and stopped having problems with it was like Oh my God I was just spent the last thirty five years allergic to wheat. And my kids like I gave each of them one Which was fine. That went great and then I was laughed with Lake. It must have been ten. Giro's is the least you can buy because I think there was like six left and I couldn't give any to my wife so I just ate all of show with a like in a bag in the paper and Claire Abso absolutely and I just like the whole and you know like I wish I could tell you guys that at the end of eating all those. Toro's I was like sick and felt regret that I hit the Charles but at the end of it I was like those were great Charles and that was the total feeling. I was having was feel alive glad that I ate all those often. That final cut grateful to be alive other toppings available or was it just I think it was like just playing some powdered sugar. And then the dish that was the pitcher is like this beautiful mountain. Fresh dill right. Yes and yeah it was just some John I didn't know there was a close funnel cake. I thought now yeah just just straight on route. Sixty six top down on my convertible down the kill many people as I'm fairly down the guards machine shaped like a wigwam. Maybe man just me and my cakes you gotta get some cakes. We can't say that unless they buy more AD. Okay Fair enough. Yeah Yeah I mean. There is one other Santa Cruz. Thing is at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Which is the sort of the center of occurs culture. There is a dip in dot stand and we did once book the DIP officials. I'm sorry yeah that's another one. John provides roles but not a fancy French name right. I dip DOT is a type of ice cream. It marketed as the ice cream of the future. It's been the ask him in the future since since the nineteen fifty nine New York. It's fair or something. Now it's the ice cream the recent path a little less as little as of a catchy slogan at this point. It's sort of like when they sold those shoes that looked like Michael. J. Fox's shoes from back to the future but we didn't actually have all sure but the been died cryogenically frozen with liquid nitrogen or something like that into little tiny balls Boba Boba but they are like each each discrete piece of ice cream. You can move around very discreet. You can fuck them and they will tell your wife there so that was shaved shaved ice cream balls. I'm so sick of uptight ice cream. Tell your wife as soon as you fuck them. Sometimes when. I'm not sure why we do this. Show I remember that Sarah Mortenson five thousand miles away stuffing my face with banking Frenchtown. I have a question sensible. Yeah that's what I when I say pancakes you guys cool pancakes and we call. American pancakes do are you like many British people.

Episode of Bullseye My public radio program where our friend Linda Holmes interviewed me That will be available Right before the Max Fund drive which is coming up in a few weeks and In that interview at the end Linda mentioned in fact emphatically plugged without me asking to the new Max. Fun Show Fanti. Fanti is a really cool pop. Culture show that focuses on problematic faves but as Linda said in. That conversation is so much more than that and so much more insightful than that and I hope that Jordan Jesse listeners will check out fanti because we are super super proud of it is a really fascinating very funny show. We'll get look no offence to Jarrett. Who's a wonderful brilliant man? They will get. I think. We'll get Trevelyan here sometime soon. Sure Sorry Jarrett. We're bringing in traveled.

The there might be agreement. That'd be a good. Yes fanti FANTI. The first episode was about Kevin. Hart who you know is obviously very brilliantly talented Comic mind who also has set a lot of really shitty things done a very bad job apologizing for them over the years and that sort of like the the breadth of in fact. I was just talking with Ben Harrison the other night host of greatest generation maximum star Trek podcast about gene roddenberry who it turns out. You know like a star trek is this. This is reported to me by Ben so take it up with him. If I'm if this upsets anyone but I can't imagine well be our most complained about how we hate pancakes. Star Trek Star. Trek is many people very beloved Fame including bans And it is a sort of Utopian vision for a world that is almost post-conflict post economic scarcity. Like all these different unusual things about it but is also like weirdly. The answer to everything is like a sort of colonialist imperialism and also apparently gene roddenberry was a real astle like maybe a bad person. So that's another great example. It doesn't mean you don't you can't love Star Trek and there's a show that's full of love in an actual cultural insight But that we should engage with the problematic of those things. I think if we've learned nothing you could you? You literally must enjoy The things that you enjoy despite the asshole for your victory because they shouldn't be able to take that away from.

What are your personal favorite mints? And what minced did you grow up with? Grew up well. I grew up with these tribal extra strong winds. No woman's the thing. The reason why these were great as a child is because the advert had a jingle that went treibil meant remained stronger and it didn't What's the word We end the result. Thank you so it was a child you would go. Tree boom our mentally bit stronger. Stick up you bomb. And they lost a bit longer delight saying say that was made they all strong.

I'm going to have a milk bottle and has a dust on it. Yeah why is it dusty? Wait a SEC. I have a more important question. I'm yelling at the back of the package. Yeah Jordan Jordan. Sort of lulled his arm across his microphone. Stand and so I. I could see the back of the package. There is what appears to be a pigeon saying SLURP. Yeah there is a pitch is that what is that about England. That's that is all the brand milk bottles sweet so that is not a beloved like beloved advertising character Country Shirt Jin. I've never come across that before. So weird I guess I guess milk. He's SLURPING MILK. Pigeons even SLURP. I don't think so I don't think pigeon can SLURP leader Great.

Yeah it's a nice a nice sucking meant it's got a similar dust on it. Yeah it does Suck Nice. Slurp SLURP GOES THE PIGEON GOES THE GHOST. I'm gonNA tell your wife discrete The other thing I bought was Folks Gosse men's no last image which are a clear a film ARP. Candy on the Ba- I. This really startled me when I saw it. I've never had the back of a Fox. Glycemic packet a before and it said back in the back in one thousand nine hundred seventy two Fox families started producing sweets Eric Fox. I established Fox's classrooms in one thousand nine hundred. Eighteen suites plus delicious varieties are still being produced under the watchful eye of Pepi the UK's favor bear real curveball ASEAN doors you would say a wicked Google Search Pin. The folks classroom is advertised by polar bear standing on a glassy mint. I've never would say a glacier glaciation. I've never fucking hood peppy. He's in he's beloved. You think it's a real bare. It's Polo bet but like we we Paddington. That's the polar bear is the bear and this is peppy full of beloved bears. We have so many beloved bears and this this I was blindsided by Fox pretending they have a full words. What's guy from? What's the guy from? Game of thrones that only says his own name or or that's probably Britain's most beloved bear could be Dutch. I think he's English English co door so so the the the the tree bore like a giant Al Toyed. Yeah sure we we've got Al Toys. It's equivalent thing but it's it's about a quarter of the size. It's a lot of this to put in your mouth and this one is. Fox's glacier meant for glassy meant classy when I said now this does look like a block of ice out of the three. This would fit easiest up. My this feels like you could. It has the structural integrity Greased it it will go straight up there no problem. I think some of the other ones are a little too rough on the outside or aren't strong enough to really penetrate the ring. No no too because but I think you could get lost. There's no flare. That's true without a base without address. Thank you can you? Can you write a letter to pepe? Take a letter to pepper. Hate for me pappy. What if you're busy being very famous baron? Addington would get it out. Yeah there's a bill would be right up there. We'll be right up there. There's a mint up my ass and I can barely feel it anymore. It is so yeah they eat back back.

Yeah that's a great mint so it has a relatively subtle flavors suck cesium slurp in like a pitching over here motherfucker syrup. I'm pigeon garbage. I'm sorry I need to get back to the lips and teeth now because I wanted to know what we'd animal is on the back of fat. This it's a crocodile saying always brush your teeth show. Yeah whatever crocodiles like. Oh man all the good catchphrases brush your teeth. He originally said always bet on black and then Wesley Snipes sued him. Glacier is really nice really pleasant flavor. It's almost as it. It's a very suddenly minty. has a very smooth consistency. It's a hard candy but a very gentle one. Wow you just really upset some Jessica. Soulmate that day. Them Am are people getting everyone's into something and I think you teeth clack from class across America I just heard Boyer and it has almost like earth flavors so subtly it almost tastes like it has a hint of vanilla or something like that just a very smooth gentle flavor.

The greatest city of the empire state more than two men having shoop. I think we should if this wherever just kind of starved for something to talk about on this show. Yeah shoe fight bigger than me. So you'll I manage a disadvantage. But what do you like ten? Maybe no eight and a half eight and a half okay. I'm at twelve. I mean twelve not huge for my height.

Breakin' It Down with Sheilani Alix - Summer Songs

"Welcome to women who are cast. I'm cathy barron. And i'm shay lonny alex. Welcome to another episode of breaking it down summer edition. Matab is the first time we've been in the same room in march twenty probably since february. Yeah of twenty twenty. Because i don't think we recorded in march well realize that archie me get enough fingers. Abc have three. that's eight let's plus four toes. It's been a long time in a lot of toes and fingers since we've been in the same room good and you know it's been hard although we just took like an hour trying to set up this. Oh i don't know what's harder not being in the same room or trying to set the shit up in the same. I used to be able to get away with like. Oh snap i gotta get on skype or zoom in five minutes and it'd be like boom and okay let's go and that's it. It's like shit now. You gotta plug in shit and my records not long and anyway. Yeah but you know it has been hard. And i just wanna say opens. I get sick a about. How lag positive reunited pay. Wow i love this song. It's a good song so nice so nice and if meals so good to be reunited and not half a lag of you singing. Yes and you know. Look i'm like. I can't down him beat which i can't tell but we don't need to record. That didn't thanks. But here's another song that will express how i feel debris i mean who doesn't love her. This is old. I've cried so many nights and twenty. Tony never knew. Kathy say it's been a long long year hot quite sure about my mental health. Think about it. God but it is nice to go back to like somewhat. Normal stuff causey. Well sorta you know but it's going to take a second to just really Feel comfy like i know we've been vaccinated and we then both still been like very safe still distancing still massino for sure so it's kinda cool but even like this right now like okay. Your distance away from even. I'm like this is so weird. It should i stay more inside and there's no windows windows. I kinda got a field where mask go upstairs. It is weird. And i don't think that will ever really go away for me. So just kind gotta give it up. Jesus thank you dear. I got enough to worry anymore on this one seriously though i do like not. I didn't realize how much like not being around. A lot of people know offend people. But yeah no. It's the same thing for me. Because it's i mean i don't know that i was. You have a much bigger social life than i ever had. I don't know. And i don't even think that really changed for you from i've heard and seen on the streets so streets be talking I don't know right. But yeah. I think i'm definitely in a pick and choose and set more boundaries as far as that goes Although at work. I wear a mask mostly But when again the office by myself. I'll take it off or yeah i mean even if i'm in another room yeah hopefully. No one's listening to this. That shouldn't be if i in another office with someone else. That's been vaccinated. Yeah you know. It's hard to wear a mask for eight hours. It is and granted. I've got nothing to complain about. Because of all the essential workers in the grocery workers in front line service workers. Like i totally feel for them and kudos totally to them in this out in continuing to stick it out. I can't even imagine having to do that with a mask on. I mean it's hard enough. Dealing with customers without masks sean. But then having to have a mask and a shield and and you're working your ass off and you're sweating. Your masks are not cool feeling. They're not cool either but they do not cool you down. They actually make you hotter. I was beat upside of all of that is like a lot of the times in customer service. You have to watch your face right like you can't make his like rolling your eyes well. He can't really but like you know frowning being like the what the f. kind of face I guess i was watching nine hundred. Let's say where are you and there's a scene. It reminded me of that where they were talking to. This one server. They're asking you know. How did you feel about that moment. And she was like well. I'm so glad. I have a mass con- because he would have seen my face be like what i was like. Oh man that's plus. Yeah exactly exactly then you gotta retrain yourself like once. It's time to take off. The mask is like all right. Oh you could see out. Oh shit. I thought i had a mask on a hoops. We'll summer is here and it's nice because the weather's getting nicer so we're getting outside and doing more things and be decided to do summer songs for this edition yes Of or yes. This summer addition. Oh they love this thing and this thing that chain lonnie's talking about is the road gaster pro which which is what took us forever now. That is not a good thing. It's just. I'm not used to having to use yet with someone in the same room with two microphones and you know learning process in learning curve. So but it is fun to have all of these Displays place so he there so shining to they look like candy. You wanna put it in your mouth like those gummy candies me. Go road caster pro. So what did you want to talk about. As far as summer songs and well i was trying to do my due. Diligence assignment and i was thinking like what makes a song summer song eight and what i landed on. I guess i should check with you. I landed on was what kind of songs make me feel like. I wanna be outside. Which feel like they. Make me feel sonny bono. That sounds weird. But you know what i mean. You're sunny all the time money and is like relaxing and makes me want to see colors in my head of like bright light airy breezy. Make me feel breezy. so molly does. I would no caffeine. No but anyway. So i was thinking those were that was my criteria. How do i define summer songs. And that's what i landed on. I don't know so it was one of the songs that you landed on. Well good my list. Let me see i could. I had to narrow it down because like all right. We've be like maybe thirty minutes on this thing so The first one which is probably going to be kind of obvious is in the summertime By mungo jerry. Does it sound something like this. This is awesome. Zahn kind of some of the words are like. Can't you imagine that commercial wasn't at the santa cruz beach boardwalk. I think so so down on you. Yeah yeah there's that's not very nice. That's not that's not good little sexist. Their sex classes like all of it get racist at the second ages. Have you seen the video. This sideburns are like ridiculous shit. Yeah i guess. I was styled down anyway that the reason why that made my list for obvious reasons literally literally summer song is because of the widow reminded me when i was a kid growing up in the bay area. I could swear it was santa cruz. Beach boardwalk was one of those like amusement. Parks probably should have googled it before. Because i can't quite remember my age by just remember. Turn on the tv schools out here. Here's all these people at the beach and of course we could never go. Because we're like way too far from south than jay jay. How for jay ho and yeah. It just reminded me like all right. It's you know sun. The sun is out what we should be doing. But you know well what did you do then summer. Yeah since you couldn't go to santa cruz. Summer school played volleyball or summer. 'cause vallejo doesn't really have a beach now. They have a marina. But i you can't get in there have a boat. You don't have the access access code to the gated area. Hang out in the parking lot. Who was let me love blanket on this concrete and watch the segel's go by when a kid just typical kid things were getting on your by my huffy. Redman name up enough hussy right now. My huffy pink huffy around the neighborhood terrorizing the cats doing all that stuff catching grasshoppers with friends. You know just goofy little kid things. I miss those days. Lie group in small town as most of you know in rehab a lake with Messy wasn't that late. i don't think this is like what might have been champ planner. George one of those don't now but it did have a beach and it had like a concession stand which was really cool and how to jukebox nice. So it was kind of cool. That's where i learned how to swim in. Open my eyes in the water in a lake in a lake police. Oh i think. I've been in a lake once swimming ever like. Wow because it had like the sandy. Bottom and i mean obviously it wasn't that clear but we were playing. I was taking a swim lesson or something. We're they had like these orange. You know these colored rings they had thrown into the water and we had to get them. You got to kind of see what you're looking at so i was like okay. I got opened my eyes and get these rings and just popped them open and look back. Vowel sounds scary. No was it but if you can't see all the way to the bottom not like no. It's not like it was in the shallow so he could still stand up just came. There wasn't like you know the abyss below you. You gotta catch the rings honey just float to go really fast into the water before leaving. The you lost you know. Was it free diving. Or not. Like abalone on dane. Because you little spear happy. Little kathy with a spear divy geared or flippers because god that was one but we didn't really go out to the beach months because we had to drive there. Even though it was in the same town was a little too far to walk or ride their bikes. So sounds fun. Doesn't that's still sells ice water. Son i mean and at night we would catch fireflies. Call them lightning bugs. I've heard of that before never end. Maybe seen pictures of people doing that with a real. It's a goal. Oh fun Oh chan marines. Put that i'm gonna button next. There's so many buttons but not really because there's like so much to put on them like it so i found a list of twenty biggest songs of the summer. The two thousand from rolling stone magazine and i was looking for something specific to the year. Two thousand but i couldn't i guess i didn't put in the right key words to get what i wanted. And this is what i came up with. And they printed this in twenty nineteen but two thousand was twenty one years ago. Yes it was not just blow your mind. Yep yeah it's crazy twenty one years ago. Twenty one twenty one right because this is twenty twenty one right you need to count on your fingers again. One to three nine. So do you remember where you weren't thousand. Yeah i do. Actually one of the songs that made my list was around. That time i was living in san diego. Going to grad school and ninety nine was actually a really memorable year for me. Because i was. Because that's when i entered into grad school. Oh yeah so it was just kind of. There's a lot happening that year and ended up. I just remember lots of music was actually pretty Pretty pivotal for that. But do you want to share what song that is. Oh yeah. I listened a lot to to gusta Do you remember them. They're still around actually. Let me see what's long it was. It was the album that i really liked. A lot from them was called lost and gone forever. Lost and gone forever. Think that's lost and gone forever and it has a blue green cover and has this kid with. I think maybe a rock getting ready to just like throw it down on the ground but for some reason every song came out in september ninety nine and So that was like towards the end of the summer. And i was moving all over the place moving That time and so. That cd was in my car entire. I'll have to look gushed her up because it sounds familiar. And i'm sure i would recognize a song Yeah the song. The song that i had that i think probably gets the most is Called what you wish for Yeah and it's the first song on the whole album as well. It's great is totally great. I think you'd like it actually. And apparently they're on tour l. They're still around mentor stain ankle. See them when it feels safe Since it ever feels say. That's the only part that i'm not sure of his concerts. Go an like mountain. Winery sent out. you know. They're preview for this year. And i mean it's outside so that's not so bad but are they gonna limit the number of tickets are they gonna i mean. Are they gonna do that. Yeah we gotta ease back into this because just the anxiety level. I'm sure people's just not going to help. So we just got easier. No it yeah. Yeah we're not. We're humid or not. Just switches some people though. Some people haven't even switched to but we're anxious about that's whole other episode. So there's another song that you gave me. Yeah hey john just player. I didn't realize this is cool. And the gang. Yeah you're thinking of the was it that did it. Some are some was set. Will smith will smith dj jazzy jeff. Maybe but this is instrumental.

Yes and there's this whole sense of urgency kind of thing going on that. Oh my god. Kathy told the nilo now idea totally. It's like you know this. California's supposedly can reopen june. fifteen week. Yup so i think there's that anticipation and You know it's nice out.

It's a little bit too hard to probably. Yeah hip hop. I don't know maybe because it's not hap- really see. That's where i get confused with the whole rap hip-hop because hip hop does wrap and wrap does hip hop So what's that called rap hip hop pop rap up up up. Rap number eight is usher. You remind me oh number. Seven is e with gwen. Stefani let me blow your mind. Not one sixes riana with jay z. Umbrella ella ella ella god you. That's all would have been okay.

It's actually pretty. Well done. get beat as it's like. It felt so wrong. It felt so right. Yeah no the lyrics. I don't listen to that stuff usually but yeah the beats kinda good. I mean you know. Did she actually write this song. I should look into Because if somebody else wrote it. And then she has performed it. Now that goes usually held goes Number four is nelly furtado featuring timberland. Miscue ass- i love nelly. Remember remember her. i don't know i'm sure. What was the song that she busted. It's i don't think it's that one where she got. Really popular nelly furtado. Oh yeah her first album. Agassi the album cover. It's like her. Name's written in length is squirrelly sixties looking type of font sixties classic rock or something. I think sixty i think so. It's like all like haight ashbury. Fillmore looking like font maneater mo- it was kind of like an acoustic eighty something something. It wasn't promiscuous. I don't miscues. And i just don't know at promiscuous says other look really did sound this. Yeah she's got. It could be good all right number three. Oh that was number three.

And that's why i get trouble like thank you And and the number one song is shalon. Doesn't know the song either. Obviously he's never listened to black eyed peas. This isn't that. I got a feeling i don't know. Do you have a feeling if you got a feeling. I thought it was journey mr action. Oh boy does this remind you of some good night's gonna be a good good officially. Put this on my. I do not like black eyed peas. Make so much of this list. Well i mean they've gotten awards and stuff right. Yeah i mean they're good but spread the love. Oh my god this is number one. I mean how much you don't have to write much the lyrics. Just say the same thing over and over for five minutes. Let's spend it up. Okay let me just share with you. What pops into my head. The second i hear that song. It's like frat boy party rap. Everybody woohoo eating drinking in bottles by the pool wiki grows. I'm sorry you all had to go through that. I just don't apologize for kathy. Just god stop shalon old. Well you know how these lists go. There never accurate really. I want to see the criteria for evaluating the ranking of this layer. You wanna see the data don't you. Who came up with. That will some internet rolling stone. Had nothing better to do. And they're probably you know that age range millennial. I'm sure you're like oh. These are old people songs from ninety s was put this on the list you know readership wide range. Yeah acknowledging the diversity. Those are good list though angle lie. I mean this is good to hear it and you see that being summer songs Well i think it's kinda cool because some of these songs. I kinda forgot about like nelly totta. Yeah averell levin that like. They haven't really been in the spotlight. I don't know let's thinking more. What happened a cruel summer with been in round eight from karate kid. There was a karate kid. That's a summer song. It is wrong. Understand half the words they were saying when they sang it. But it's okay except for the chorus. It's a cruel summer. Yeah but were they saying the rest of it's about hot being hot and i'm on my own or something none and mama i owed eight and you'd probably like made up your words. We're seeing what you like ten years old or something you just like this summer and then of course is it's a cruel cruel summer. That's all. I know the leaving me here on my own. It's a cruel cruel cruel summer now. It's gone or something. I don't know i don't even know like ten keys into it. was great being in the same room with lonnie. Mrs kind of weird not having the computer screen in between us and you know you know internet zakian out on us and then like the chance of like even more noise from each of our ends like it's like weed whacker on your end on mine. Exactly that's fine. Yeah and probably just feels better like more. I didn't realize i count. Did i didn't realize how much i missed. You know. Just being in person Having the interaction It just feels more fun anyway and maybe next time won't take me two hours up the equipment and then we can just do it. We'll get it down. That is a nice little setup there though angle lie go road caster arroyo road road road caster rhody job. This is a great interface and design. Yeah i mean it's awesome. It's easy to put sounds and music into the buttons and you can delete them. And it's you know interchangeable and that's a free commercial right there for you wrote cats for real interesting about because it just it really is a great It's very easy. The buttons are really clear. I don't know what it's like to set up. I mean you know it's pretty easy. Yeah setting up the sounds on the buttons and stuff Just a very very clean thing. Yep recommended will thank you shalon knee for another episode of breaking it down. Wiki leaks for having me.

"They talk about a road trip porter. Fox and matz exploring the borderline at the us and canada from atlantic to pacific often. You had to look closely to tell which side you were on. Really the only indication. Is that when you go through town. There's canadian flags flying onside american flags climbing on the other coming up. He tells us what he found along. Four thousand miles the longest national border in the world. There's a lot you can explore within a couple of hours of san francisco. Kimberly nevada shares some of her favorite day trips like the santa cruz beach boardwalk.

We're heading for the border. Today's travel with rick steves. The canadian border well. The pandemic closed the us. Canada border to all but essential workers for longer than anyone could have imagined. It's famously been touted as the longest peaceful national border in the world. A few years ago porter fox found the border is not always so easy to identify when it runs through lakes and rivers that keep flowing and changing his trip along. The border demonstrated the western of both nations and what it means to have a good name porter. Fox joins us for a closer look at the northland in just a bit further south. Kimberly lobato wrote one hundred things to do in san francisco before you died. She recommends some of the great day trips within easy reach of the city. Let's open today's travel with rick. Steves looking at some of the memorable experiences. You can have in america's national parks writer and photographer. Becky lomax is the daughter of a national park ranger. She was raised in the mount. Ranier and olympic national parks now lives next to glacier national park. She's written a detailed guide to the usa. National parks published by moon. Today's interviews were recorded before the global. Pandemic becky thanks for being here. Thank you you've written a book. It's a seven hundred page guide book covering the national parks. Let's just take a blitz around the country and talked about some of the most unforgettable experiences that you could have. And i'm just going to. I've just was paging through your book. I'll just mentioned them. And you can describe them for us and we can kind of put our travel dreams the action here You talk about watching the ice calve. In glacier bay correct calvin. Is that what it's called yes. These are tidewater. glaciers glaciers. Come down and touch the water okay. And then as the glaciers pushing ice down it breaks off. That's the calving okay. And then you get these icebergs floating out there. The way to go see them is via a cruise boat. So you take a cruise crew and then you don't wanna get too close because when i was made a big point of it don't be stupid and get too close with your little bit. Because of freakishly big piece of ice can break. Aw create a little tidal wave exactly and you could be in the cold water exactly and you can also do tours that go up to see him. And so forth so bay. Glacier national park How about the famous one going to yellowstone watching old faithful. That's absolutely wonderful now. The guys are old faith. Is it still faithful yet about ninety minutes. I'm heading in this winter. It's the best time to go. Because in summer you'll be watching faithful erupt with you know so thousand other people. You've got to wait. Ninety minutes went yes in winter. You go in and you might be one of twenty people watching it. Yeah i just in iceland. And there's a place called geyser and it's where the word geyser came from fun. The guys are there goes every three or four minutes. Okay and i gotta ask kind of study it and you don't want to blink because if you've waited you waited for What eighty nine minutes. And you pause or you look around and then more faithful goes you gotta wait another eighty nine minutes right. So i learned at geyser in iceland that the water kind of billows up yes and then it blows you look at the water and if it starts to billow up. It's ready to burp. Yes is a little pre-action that's have you noticed that. Oh yeah oh faithful. Yeah and it usually gets the crowd all ramped up with. Oh it's happening. It's happening back off a little bit and blows all you hear to. These is go all the way round in your book. You talk about wildflowers in death valley that just looks beautiful when death valley gets the right moisture. That's when this will happen because people say a common misperception is a desert is just a vast nothingness with no lights and so much life. How much and when you get those right conditions all the sudden. It's instant both hops. Okay so wildflowers. What month is that march using. What is in their yes out. You talked also about the longest cave system in the world in crawling through that at mammoth cave. Mammoth cave he has. What is well you take. Cave tours is a cluster phobic. If you can answer to that right so that would be one. Of the highlights in your. I've long dreamt about rafting down the grand canyon. And you spend that it's over two hundred miles long. A lot of people raft a little bit of it and then they have a quick exit. Other people do the whole thing but that takes a lot of time usually twenty one days if you do the full trip without a motor on the so you've got the idea to take three weeks to raft the whole thing or you can boat the whole thing with a motor. What's the pros and cons of doing it. The traditional way without a motor or just motoring through. I would think you have to debate. Do i wanna really raft and just do part of it. If i've only got a week or do i want to do the whole thing quickly. With the motor. What he's doing it with the motor. Those boats are really big. You'll hit the rapids differently than you will. If you're in a small dory or a small raft if you're into the thrills you'll get much more bang for your buck on the smaller okay. You're more intimate with vota the rapids. Yes is it more demanding physically. Is it more dangerous less enjoyable that way for some people. Yeah if you're if you're a tender foot you might find it easier to take the motorboat exactly you can still Drag your toes in the water and have experienced one. You'll still see the beautiful cliffs and everything one of the most beautiful things you talk about in. Your guidebook is the rainforest in the whole river in olympic national park. Tell us a little bit about that experience. you know. it's a work of art over there. it really is. You've got these ancient trees beautiful cedars maples in. They're all just dripping with moss and ferns all over and it's not a tropical rainforest because most reinforce our tropical this is one of the only temperate rainforest cracked it. Looks like someplace. Where trolls and things should be. Lord of the rings line like that and they do a great job of teaching. When you go there yeah interpretive in is. That was the word. This is a great one. You can go take that interpretive wa. So if you're interested intrigue of course you want to see the big ones in california. Where would you go for your big tree. Thrills in california big tree thrills would be in the red woods and seeing those would be sequoia and kings and the biggest of all is sequoia and. That's a very easy visit for anybody. That's basically a road trip isn't short walks back to the trees. This is travel with rick. Steves we're talking with becky lomax. Her book is usa national parks. And we're just lifting through some of her favorite parks summer for favorite experiences. And one that i think you can just feel your enthusiasm for parks. When you read this book hiking the narrows in zion. That looked so cool. Will you gotta. I want to get your feet wet boots or do you just get you. Were tennis shoes. Just get your feet can get a little cut up on the rocks. So you're better off if you can actually rent some serious boots. Yeah not serious boots. But they're the river shoes made for walking. Oh really oh. Yeah and so basically. You're walking right up the water and the cliffs are right here So the water is below your knees generally along. Well yeah can be. You can make quite long or you can just go look with. You can do a couple months. Shorty and turnaround combat and the same thing in sicily and it was an amazing experience so different that would be hike. The narrows in zion. And it's like those old movies. If you didn't want the bad guys following you you can have tracks walk up the river. Exactly how narrow is are the cliffs because it sounds like a deer could jump from one to the other you know in some places. Those cliffs do narrow in quite a couple meters across. Yes and then you talk. And this is great for looking at pre columbian civilizations you tour the ancient cliff dwellings in mesa verde. Those are amazing. Totally amazing don't appreciate what was going on. Before columbus discovered america not just a few generations way before the fact that they survived and built their livelihoods in these cliff palaces in the sides of cliffs and they go down and climb in there and build so a lot of people under appreciate pre-columbian civilizations and some of these parks are nothing but nature but others are celebration of yesterday of history. What are some other examples in the parks where you can really celebrate the civilizations that were here. Before the arrival of europeans. You know a lot of the parks are trying to do more with bringing that to light. But i mentioned glacier bay. Aren't there priest petroglyphs in southwest. Yeah in several of the park's they're like canyon lands at arches they've got petroglyphs in a highlight for. Anybody is watching fireflies. A great smokies national park That's just a period of time. You got to be there. Usually in june and you gotta get permit. And they're called synchronous firefly's because they all light up at the same time. Oh sounds so much fund. This is travel with rick. Steves talking with becky. Lomax about usa national parks. And that's the name of her book. You talk about something called sure. The great lodges these parks and one of my favorite national park experiences was in the paradise logic. Mount ranier and this is understand a work project during the great depression. are there big fireplaces and this old school woody charm and great based to hike from are there other park lodges that become part of the joy of the experience. Yeah yellowstone's old faithful in Glacier parks many glacier hotel built by the railroad instead of assisi project yosemite has some nice places. Ask the alani so you might be wise. And i'm sure in your book you cover. Accommodation is is to make reservations in advance. If you wanna stay in something other than a forgettable motel. You need to make reservations a year to thirteen months in advance for most that right swell our plan ahead. Let's talk also about eating. Because i find food tastes better when you're in a park but when you're i mean spam and crackers on top of a mountain. Is gordon. Absolutely your favorite eating experience. What are you look forward to when you're hiking and enjoying nature you know my favorite when i'm out hiking and so forth it's jerky and it's nuts rather than sitting down and eating some bail sandwich. I just like being able to pop steph and my mouth all day long so you packed with that in mind. I do and then chocolate. A picnic. Aficionado and i like to augment the experience by creating a great set so i'm giving them a bluff or a peak and then i crack open. Whatever i've got. That's where you marvel it. I didn't know crackers. And spam good taste an amazing. And that's the beautiful thing about nature you get immersed in nature you realize. Different things are are more important than you realize and things are less important than you realize. This is travel with rick. Steves we've been talking with becky lomax. Her book is usa becky's so clearly parks connect us with nature. And let's say you could a friend who'd never been out of the city somebody who never marveled at mossy carpeting trees. We talked about in the whole river valley in the olympic national park. What national park experience would you share with. this person. who's never been out of the city. I would want them to see wildlife to take them to something like yellowstone or theodore roosevelt national park or everglades. It's amazing to watch wild animals out doing their wild thing as and where we are the visitor. Exactly becky lomax. Thanks so much for inspiring us to enjoy america's best idea than national parks. You vicki lomax is book published by moon. Usa national parks won the top prize for guidebooks from the mole. Thomas awards in twenty nineteen becky's newest guidebooks for moon our best of yellowstone and grand teton and one glacier national park. She's also a road trip guide to the us and canadian rockies due out soon her website is becky lomax dot com and there's more wilderness to explore london. Us canada border. That's next on travel. With rick steves. What lies over the us. Border and canada has never seemed very foreign to me. I i'm rick steves. I grew up. Loving the view of the peace arch when we drive up from seattle to visit relatives. In vancouver it celebrates the longest friendliest border in the world. Porter fox grew up at the other end of the border in maine before the pandemic closed the border for the first time ever puerto explored the entire length of it to see what it could tell us about our two countries. He describes what he calls. America's forgotten border in his book northland. Our interview with porter was recorded before the pandemic started porter. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me. It is kind of forgotten border. I mean forgotten the sense that we sort of take it for granted and nowadays. It's getting a little more attention as many people in our nation here are interested in tightening up border security. Just how long is this border. And is it actually the longest in the world. It sure is it's if you include the border up in alaska's well it's close to fifty five hundred miles Just the longest international border in the world you know even the lower forty eight contains the longest straight border in the world along the forty ninth parallel takes off from lake of the woods and minnesota and ends up in bellingham washington. It's more than twice as long as our southern border and yet our southern border seems to get all the headlines and not only that it gets all of the funding from congress and has many times more border agents close to nineteen thousand at this point compared to the northern borders Just over two thousand two guard a line. That's you know. Well more than twice. As long i was i would think part of that is just the economic reality. Canadians have about the fame per capita income. As we do here in the united states whereas there's a tenfold difference in average wealth per person in the united states compared to south of the border it's true and and there's there's a lot more illegal immigrants trying to cross the border in the south however most of the entries come through ports of entry checkpoints hidden in vehicles on with false documents and whatnot. What's a lot of miles to protect either way on the north and the south when you're looking at the border in the north you've traveled the whole thing. Can you actually see it. I know in the east. it's mostly water. Is it a physical border. What do you see when you see the border. I mean i call it the forgotten border because you. It's very hard to find the border in the north at traveled most of it and in the east a lot of it by canoe. It's very remote parts of maine upstate. New york vermont new hampshire than shoots across the great lakes for the five great lakes. And you know in maine any way you know has spent weeks on those rivers and they're literally are no monuments. There's no line. There's no signs that say. Hey don't cross here. The really the only indication is that when you go through a town. There's canadian flags flying on one side and american flags flying on the other but for most of it it just looks like a backcountry river country woods. You wrote about in montana. There's the cut which is a visible line of deforestation. Does that track the border i. it sure does. and it's Goes across the border. There's parts where it crosses the forty fifth through Vermont new hampshire new york therefore any forested section of the border has a twenty foot wide cut on it twenty foot wide cut twenty foot wide. Yeah we're back in the eighteen. Hundreds hundred these poor timber guys sent to go through with axes and chop down trees for us close to fifteen hundred miles of forested with that. Just like neighbors stakeout where their fence goes so. There's no question i mean. Was there physically connected from washington dc to say we need twenty-foot cut so we know where the borders that's exactly what it was. The international border commission was developed. And they said well to market through the forest. This is what we're going to look back when they didn't even know where the border went surveying techniques very different that was marked several times and incorrectly several times. And even now the border strays up to nine hundred feet north or south of where the line original you know. It is interesting. You mentioned a lot of the border in the east is waterways the technical border will jig jag depending on where how deep the water is because i guess the understanding is the deepest point in the lake or the river will be the border. Yeah the deep water. Mark is officially the border and that's shifting constantly in lakes and rivers and so that's partly why they don't market but not marking it and having it move makes it really difficult for fishermen freighters on the great lakes and just people going out to Recreationally canoeing camping you. You really don't know where are half the time you're out there. There's lots of times and seventy don't know if they're in canada or the united states. Now you mentioned the longest straight line in the world along the forty ninth parallel. That is quite remarkable to think of that long of a stretch words. Just somebody said. That's the deal okay. You're canada where america talk about the anomalies around there. I know north of seattle. You've got point. Roberts with just a little tip of land that's connected with candidate but it happens to protrude south of the forty ninth parallel right. Yeah absolutely and you know the street border is very problematic. They're not many around the world. That's partly why this one is so unique. It's not really a great idea to just a snap a chalk line across the map and say all right. Here's where this goes it's split Native american tribes in half it splits towns and half mountain ranges in half. It's very problematic where it splits. A watershed and half and rivers start in canada flow into the us and go back into canada with farms all around. They're drawing from that stream and and water rights are extremely complicated and still fought over today. So i i. It was done in a very stressful time. James polk was president and they were trying to figure out in oregon territory and how to split adopt after jointly living there for around one hundred years. They fi- said listen. We have to finish this border. Here polk was going for fifty four forty or fight. You might remember the the slogan fifty four will. Gosh that's up near alaska at the border that the us is fighting for an and British canada was happy to say. Okay settled on the forty ninth and simultaneously the mexican border and You know the war down. There was kind of raging and it was just too much. Let's get this thing done. And there's towns that are split by the border. You mentioned towns in maine that are part in maine and part in quebec. There's towns that are split by the border. There's backyards that are split. There's a factor in mattawamkeag maine. That split in half. There's there talked about tavern. Where you during prohibition you could go in from america and you could Sit in the back of the room. Drink in canada. There were taverns built on the border. During prohibition for that purpose they were taverns built on the river on a barge and they would float the barge over to the american shore. Pick up people. They'd floated back over to the canadian. Shore they'd party on night and then they go back and drop them off the hours in the morning. We're traveling along. Four thousand mile border between the lower forty-eight and canada right now and travel with rick steves. Our guest is travel writer porter fox on several trips over three years porter made his way from maine all the way to washington state following the border. His book is called northland. A four thousand mile journey along america's forgotten border and it tells a visit ventures and the people he met along the way. It's interesting that you talk about. The border was ignoring tribal land. It was ignoring the water basins and so on and that can cause untold problems. It's remarkable we've managed as long as we have without real conflict. Because of that. And my feeling when i travel is when you reach a border it feels like a kind of no man's land between two tribes and we don't really have that with our border dewey. Yeah i mean it's interesting when you get real close to that northern border i. I did find a no-man's-land. I found a place where american developers and businesses and whatnot kind of didn't see much opportunity there because they had to stop at the border at a certain point in candidates a little bit different ninety percent of the canadian population lives within one hundred miles of their southern border. Ten percent of the american population lives with one hundred miles of the northern border. And most of that is in detroit and bellingham and other border cities. So it's very on the american side any way it kind of is a no man's land in what i found who's interesting Covering lot of kind of gone against the grain and tried to find places that people did not go. And see what that's like. I find a really unique experience and this whole journey was like that it was forgotten. Towns and forgotten know million acre wildernesses. That really saw very few people in in maine and minnesota's boundary waters glacier national park. It was just these huge swaths of wilderness and kind of old world living that America really had forgotten and had been left very pristine well. Let's take this journey porter because it sounds fascinating and give us an overview started in maine and went to washington state. How did you do the journey. I in separate trips. And i started in west quality had in maine the easternmost point of the continental us. I took a canoe and went up the saint croix river which marks kind of the first couple of hundred miles of the us. Canada border spent the night in these backcountry. Campsites sometimes in canada sometimes in maine. Sometimes i didn't know where i was. There's also no cell service on the border So you're maps don't work quite right so if you are traveling along the border it sort of is a no man's land between Two different countries self-services. It truly is you. You lose service with your american provider. And sometimes the canadian provider picks up. Sometimes it doesn't. But i had no maps no. Gps that i in through maine. And i grew up in maine and man. I never saw back country like this. I mean it was truly pitch black dark. No light pollution at night. No sound no people. Wow now you're in a canoe and it's october right and you. It's time to get started on a long journey. Not only did it get colder as a cold snap when i took off and it was early mid october and they got their first frost of the year and it was a canoe lakes. Yeah i'm in a canoe and it's starting to ice up and wow it was. It just made everything a little bit more more intense but after that canoe trip i Came back home and wrote up that section of the journey and the next next trip. I did i took I was a passenger on seven. Hundred and forty foot freighter that left from montreal and follow the border across for the great lakes and left me off and thunder bay up in ontario couple hundred miles north of duluth minnesota freighter those a bulker. It was carrying iron ore out of the us for travelers that they rented well what they have is. They have rooms for the crew. They had an owner's suite that i luckily was assigned to and They take passengers. The the lakes are interesting. the Ocean freighters actually will rant rooms and you can purchase twenty four day passage indonesia if you want because of security on the lake since nine eleven. It's been very tight. They don't really do that but they do have. Rooms for family for friends for owners investors. I my project said hey. That sounds interesting. We'd love to offer you passage and this was through this call. The sweetwater sees the body of o lakes and canals and water from river from new york. Pennsylvania ohio into the great lakes. Exactly and and following the kind of adventures of samuel de champlain. who started near west quasi head. That's really where the first french outpost in the new world was. And then he went up the saint lawrence and found his way into the great lakes. Quarterbacks our guest on travel with rick steves. He writes about his discoveries along the friendliest bordering the world in his book. Northland four thousand mile journey along. America's for cotton board puerto also edits the online literary travel magazine called nowhere. His website is porter fox dot com by the way our interview was recorded before the pandemic closed the border to non essential. What's it like to actually sale as sort of as a trip through the great lakes. It is very slow. It's very long really. Feels like you're on an ocean when you look out the bridge window. You can't see land anywhere. it's just all water all around you you know. I grew up sailing off the coast of maine. I was used to that but certainly not used to that. In the middle of north america. It was truly stunning. And it was really easy to see how champlain would have thought that. He had discovered the northwest passage china that he was looking for. It certainly looked like the shore of an ocean when you enter lake ontario and the same for every other leg but of course you know at the edge of every lake he nailed down and tastes the water and realize there was no salt in it and it was water. Indeed sweetwater sees zack. And i can just see him going. Is it salty it best. I'm sure okay. Well you survive. That came the boundary waters between minnesota's northland's and ontario to thunder bay the kind of beginning of the boundary waters Starts at the pigeon river and goes up into northern minnesota and a chain of lakes and rivers. That goes right along the border. All the way to lake of the woods and the beginning of the northern plains. I did the boundary waters canoe area which is a million acre wilderness. Area that Was a keystone of the wilderness. Act in the us and is one of the most pristine and most protected wildernesses in the us. You can't take any kind of mechanized craft in there. You can't even take a paddle boat into these legs and rivers. You can't fly an airplane below three thousand feet over this region it is extremely pristine lake country and deep deep forest. And you wrote very. Interestingly you wrote if you're not on the water you're in the woods. Yeah that's there's not much in between and so we would paddle from one lake to the next and then we would portage you know. Put the canoe on our shoulders mortgage into the next one. We had a terrific guide who had been an arctic explorer and and really knew the history of of the area well and we just paddled along the border for days it was. It was really stunning. And that was kind of the end of the the water section of the border and of the first third of it and and from there. I hit the road to Follow the come across the northern plains. And as i was crossing them i heard on the radio the standing rock protests and Had read about them soon. Nation as this terrific northland tribe for hundreds of years and and so the next section was really focused on that history. And and this was the demonstrations against the dakota access pipeline. Right e- absolutely. Yeah yeah near. Canon ball on north dakota and dj indian reservations along that border areas and her. Yeah a dozen or split by the border from east to west. When i was in maine i was on the past quasi reservation that split in half i spoke to the suez book to the black fina. Spoke to the lami. And what are your memories from traveling in the reservations. That's a lot of miles on the border. It's very destitute Very populated destitute meaning very sad economies of very poor not spiritually spiritually incredibly rich and powerful and very independent and really hopeful. The people that i spoke with and didn't like to be characterized as destitute at all said. Well this is you know. This is kind of the reality of where we are but they they've really been dealt a bad hand by washington. Dc for the last couple hundred years literally having treaties and and deals promised to them just pulled out from under their feet time and again and the same thing happened. It's at standing rock. As far as the constitution goes it was illegal. What happened in the oil. Companies prevailed what i saw what my takeaway was. Was this incredible sense of hope. And the way that their spirit just could not be defeated. They're not going to be knocked down by This terrible decision that the judge handed down they just kept going and honestly splintered off to every corner of north america and are fighting this fight against the big oil companies that other pipelines and the tar sands oil fields and Coal ports out in the coast of washington and and so that movement is really just begun. Which you know in the face of defeat at standing rock was actually a very inspiring moment and again diving into the history of it in and seeing this massive territory that zoo nation controlled really quite efficiently and well. It makes up today. One fifth of the continental united states and and that was the territory that they you know at the time traded away for peace that is was very advanced tribe as were as were many tribes in in north america. You know major cities in the midwestern and native american civilizations but of course that doesn't make it into the history books shadows forty ninth parallel along. Us to from montana washington state in just a minute on travel with rick steves. Then we head south for some of the great day trips. You can take within easy. Reach of san francisco fox. Our guest right now traveled to steve's porter details his adventures along the us canadian border in his latest book. Northland he's also the editor of the online literary travel magazine called nowhere. His website is porter. Fox dot com support tickets down the final section of your journey. The medicine line following. Us route to from montana all the way to washington. Yeah so the medicine. Line is is the forty ninth parallel. That just shoot straight out to the pacific and i drove that section and kind of wandered a back and forth from the border down into the plains and then and to eventually through idaho and eastern washington and up into the cascades and You know really. That was one of my favorite parts of the trip was on the opposite side of the country from where i grew up and to be able to recount how these borders surveyors you know. Spent years traipsing across the plains. In through the cascades climbing mountains that had never been climbed by a white man before and marking them and reading about again. The date of american history there in the history of oregon territory. And how you know. The british and americans were living there in at the same time by agreement then suddenly that ends and even before them how russian america stretched down the coast from lasca. Down to san francisco and too much of this territory. I mean it was just against so much history that really builds from the eastern side of the border straight across to the west every hundred miles. You cross your covering twenty years in time. It did grow that way from east to west and so traveling at that way i got to sort of bring the story up to present time in those in that last Thousand miles of the trip is kind of takes you through history of the westward movement of the united states. It does. yeah what was on it. It'd be good to do this trip from maine to washington rather than the other way because it's in chronological order. Exactly and that's that's why i did the trip in that direction and i was writing about the sixteen hundreds and the seventeen hundreds and in maine and by the time i was out in washington was writing about the twentieth century. And and you finish at another indian reservation constant reminder that there were people here before that border was drawn. And they're living on reservations in cases. Now the lemme reservation. What was the end. Point of your four thousand mile journey like You know it was very serendipitous. When i was at standing rock The one night there was a big presentation there. It was the lemme tribe and that was the one night they were there. They happened to be driving a totem pole that they had carved on lemming island and they were driving it to a protest out east somewhere and so i just happened to be there and i listened to them and i was just enthralled with everything that they had to say and when i got out to washington and i kinda finish the trip i was heading down towards seattle and i saw the sign for lemme island the let reservation i was like i got. I got gotta go and i went and i just by chance picked up a hitchhiker that studied painting and art with one of the totem pole. It would just all very naturally good way to trip. And we've got a cap up this interview. Just very quickly Where did you have a wildlife. Encounter. where did you meet some interesting animal home. my gosh. I saw some bears running across the road in northern maine. I had Probably on the canoe trip in the saint croix in maine where i one point The middle of the night had autre run between my feet into the river and there were beavers that were coming up a little eddy right next to the campsite. Just watching me. They weren't afraid of me at all. It's like they'd never seen a person before. And then what kind of treatments did you find on either side. Did you notice flags on one side more than the other where the facilities tidier on one side than the other. How could you draw any conclusions about candidate in america. In that regard. I son equal number of flags on both sides of the border in the closer to the border line. I got the more flags there were. Canadians are very proud of their side of the border. And americans are as well They also get along very well and their businesses and families and church congregations are interlaced across the northern border. And they always have been right from day one. The northern border was never meant to be a hard border. It was never meant to have a wall or have You know military style checkpoints There's been cooperation between two countries. Since before these two countries even existed but connect- free flow survive in a post. Nine eleven world are has taken a hit and does that hurt the communities. It's taken a big hit and it has been inhibited. greatly To the tune of around thirty billion dollars a year for american and canadian businesses and certainly for people and families and hospitals sitting on one side and their doctors live on the other side of the border of our to our three hour delays at that border line That really are not catching. Many criminals are illegal. Immigrants are smugglers because they all go through the back. It's really just slowing down and really hurting that kind of international relations at tragedy as europe evolves. There's fewer and fewer border formalities. And people can connect and share and team up and in the united states. We have to have this security after nine eleven. And there's a reality. there's four thousand miles of potential community. That now has you write about how. In the old days there was over one hundred crossings that were unmanned at night absolutely. And i mean to this day canada's our number two trading partner a number one oil importer i mean is an incredibly huge part of the us economy and again the people living on both sides of the border are incredibly connected. And the way. That washington is Shaping policy for this northern border. It is nothing more than pure ignorance. They're unaware of what the local situation is there because they haven't studied it. They're mimicking what they do on the south. And they're putting it into the north and they're two completely different borders that need completely different policies. Maybe rather than catering to the fears of their constituents if they would take a couple of weeks and travel along that border. they'd have a better understanding. I think that's a great idea. Puerto fox thanks for sharing your experience in your book northland. Four thousand mile journey along america's forgotten border happy travels. Thanks much off. You'll find links to puerto fox's northland book and articles. He's written about his adventures in the notes for this week. Show it's at rick steves dot com slash radio now. That california is officially reopened. Kimberly labatt knows that. A favorite pastime of many of her neighbors is to take a day trip or plant weekend getaway to explore the scenic attractions within a couple hours. Drive of san francisco. Kimberly wrote hundred things to do in san francisco before you die and includes plenty of ideas just the city in their guidebook. Just a reminder. Our interview was recorded before the pandemic. Hi kimberly thank you for having me. I'm just going to list some day trips that we consider visiting from san francisco. And get your take on them when we're when we're looking to spice up her visit to that great city. If you're in san francisco you always hear the word sausalito. What about sausalito show is is great because it's even less than a day trip. You could go there for coffee. You could go there for lunch. It's just about a fifteen minute sail across from the ferry building. I happen to live in sausalito now. I just moved from san francisco. It's this lovely town with restaurants and galleries and cafes along the water and it's really wonderful and you get a great view. So it's sorta trendy and it's got seafood restaurants in it's got nice houseboats. Four hundred houseboats and near sauce. We've got the muir woods. National monument talks about that. The mayor woods national monument is some of the oldest coastal redwoods. You'll find and it's also a very easy day trip whether you're driving or you could take the ferry to saas alito. And then there is a bus. That goes there. If you are driving you you need to make a parking reservation. So they do limit the number of people that are in the park via this parking reservation but completely worth it. Get there early before the tour buses arrive in. It's it's impressive these tall redwoods and there are a few hiking trails through there or you can just sit on a bench and take it all in remote understand. This has been actually protected for more than one hundred years. Now as and got these giant redwoods and miles of trails through the forest kenyan. Yes quite beautiful nice now. That's to the north of san francisco to the south on the coast. We have half moon bay. Yes half moon bay. My co author. Jill robinson actually lives in half moon bay and she loves it down there. It's quaint little town. And there are kayak companies and seafood restaurants also well known for its mavericks surf competition with a giant wave that role in during the winter. I believe and yeah. And it's not very far from san francisco and it's also very easy daytrip or go down for lunch if want to watch the surfers that something. That's all year long or just in certain seasons. I do believe people surf there all year long but this particular competition mavericks is a certain time of year and just for safety. Stay back a little bit i. i'll never forget. I had beautiful vacation down there in a wonderful. Bnb there's some great bnb's in half moon. There sure are now for thinking about more seashore. We've got point. Reyes national seashore That's north of san francisco as well. People love to go out there for recreation. I mean there are miles and miles of. It's a protected seashore and miles and miles of trails to hike. And it's a great day especially if you're active it's beautiful photographs and wanna sunny day. I think it's one of the places that can't be beat in the bay area with an iconic lighthouse. Yeah and the couple of small towns you can stop in point. Reyes station has a few little great places to stop for coffee or pack up your picnic. We always hear about the san andreas fault. You can actually see that known point rhys. Oh canio gosh. That's that's yeah. So there's lots of reasons nature wonderland. They're definitely talk about carmel by the sea. Well carmel by the sea is going to be a little bit of a longer trip from san francisco. But that's okay and it's also a gorgeous drive of course it's connected to monterey via the famous seventeen mile drive and pebble beach. Everyone's heard of and carmel by the sea is it's charming. Little town. fill of galleries and restaurants hotels. Yeah it's a great way to spend a day and it's probably about two two and a half hour drive from san francisco and it seems like these beach towns. They have a colonial sorta heritage got the carmel mission there. But then it's the it's sort of a haunt of artists and surfers these days in carmo by the others. Yes well there's a lot of nature trails down there and it does feel quite wild along the coast. Especially as you start to head south you know towards big sur and whatnot. It does start to get pretty wild kimberly. Nevada is helping us explore fun. Outdoor day trips within easy reach of san francisco on travel with rick. Steves kimberly reminds us to make reservations whenever possible. To be sure you can get into wineries and restaurants. She's the co author up one hundred things to do in san francisco before you die. And she's also just written core tricks for trips of a community in quarantine. Her website is kimberly lobato dot com now. If somebody's never been San francisco before their tempted to go up to napa valley. It must be the number one destination. Tell us about napa valley. Is it worth the trouble to go up there. And what are your tips to enjoy it. Absolutely recommend napa valley. Because it's not that far from the golden gate bridge. It's about a forty five minute. Drive to the town of napa and something that i've seen having lived on and off in san francisco. Now since nineteen ninety the town of napa itself used to be kind of a drive through town. You sort of gas up and go and then go visit wineries but napa. The town is actually quite hopping now with restaurants in great hotels have the napa valley wine train. Which if you don't feel like driving they have various tours. Now that you can get on and off at different wineries. That's nice so you can drink to your heart's content and yes and then you have to eventually leave the train station right next to take the wind winery. There are various tours. There's dinner tours. There's quick stop. it's three it depends on what wineries you wanna stop at the higher higher priced wineries for lack of a better description will cost more. But it's a lovely experience. It's very orient-express california style and a lot of them serve a meal on there as well so yeah the napa valley wine trains doing a great job of mixing it up allowing different type of tour. You want can experience and yeah you don't have to drive and you know where to go. Someone else's made those decisions for you know. I've done wine tasting and a lot of different areas but have never done in napa valley. Just can you walk us through what. What's the process. Do you make a reservation. Does it cost money. What kind of alternates are there. And what's it like to tour winery. Napa valley those are all good questions and it depends is the answer so napa valley wineries are reservation only but only because they want to limit the amount of people that want to be able to service you correctly and they don't want to be overrun with people and not be able to help people so most why is will take reservations. Some you can walk in and there is often a tasting fee because they don't want people just come in and drink a bunch of wine and leave but often that tasting fees is waived. If you buy a bottle of wine so it works out in everyone's favor. There are some great wineries that you can go and spend a lovely day. I mean alpha omega is one that comes to mind the have this gorgeous patio with fountains that you can just sit out there all day. Which makes it very dangerous. This is travel with rick steves.

Back to san francisco but sure you can get on kayaks. They're a lot of people rent bikes and bike over the bridge to toledo.

You Gotta Check Out These Off-Beat Museums

"Today's show is about the quirky museums of the bay area so to kick things off I went to visit a museum that I've heard a lot about but never been to oh my gosh this is so cool this looks like a kid's science project with a billion dollar budget traveled from Hawaii to California Santa Cruz California where we're told the breakers the big waves at the mouth of the San Lorenzo River close to where the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk sets. Today you probably saw the ways perfect a frame similar to the ways I like Kim's donor I started surfing in nineteen sixty two it was a life changing event once you get it in your blood it's hard to get it out coal museum that's because it's also a working lighthouse reporter Bianca Taylor learned it was also one of the First Museums to Celebrate House surfing risk comes from the Institute on Aging a local nonprofit providing personalized home care for aging adults throughout the bay area live in an hourly care for aging a key key at the time when he went back until we gotta make some surfboards so they went to a lumber mill picked up some redwood planks and shaped them by hand using surfing the Santa Cruz here the teenagers were sent to California by the King of Hawaii to attend Saint Matthews Military Academy in San Mateo One day David got a glimpse of it's really what is of interest here it reminds me a lot of like a model railroad we can kinda roam around it and admire everything in miniature loved ones is provided in the comfort of their own homes I o aging dot org the next up on today's toward doesn't look like your typical today we are celebrating the unexpected the small the Quirky museums of the bay area. We're going to take you to two of our favorite museums surfing originated here in Santa Cruz this Santa Cruz Surfing Museum is housed in a small Lighthouse Overlooking Steamer Lane Famous Surfing beach outside there's a plaque the San Francisco Bay Delta model is a scientific tool which stimulates the basic principle water movements this was built by the Army Corps of Engineers is a giant like airplane hangar size building filled with a miniature model of the entire San Francisco Bay and when I say that I mean all the waters of the goes back a hundred years earlier was a hot summer day July eighteen or as high as any of the Pacific roles to the beaches there are surf writing competition which makes for a pleasant Santa Cruz has been lowering surfers to its beaches for decades sir that likely bay model are free and also superfund stick around support for Baker Ace this is bay curious the show from that explores the bay area. I'm Olivia Allen Price Kim is a surface dorien founder of the Santa Cruz Surfing Museum we came up with the idea in one thousand nine hundred eighty five Kim says the history of surfing in Santa Cruz four we had the kind of computer modeling software that we have today scientists and engineers have used the model throughout the years to determine changes in water movement which would result from the just like levies are brand channel trenching or the results of the Bay model is just one of those places that you walk in and you Kinda can't help thinking like what is this nice those boards seventeen feet long and weighed more than two hundred pounds and it was exciting I mean it basically cemented in stone hundreds because it's such a tiny space a timeline guide you through the museum starting with a replica of the board the Hawaiian Prince's road to over here rafters there are fins and old t shirts tacked onto display boards and everywhere you look there are incredible photos of people serving Santa Cruz dating all the way back to the early nineteen imprint of these ducks birds walk a little further and you get into the nineteen sixties this one I started surfing early sixties eighty five three Hawaiian princes David Edward Jona that's David Cone Anacostia Edward Kennedy and Joan Kalanianaole commemorating the three princesses but inside is where you really start to get your serve education who's kind of congested in here but we have a lot of stuff but it's very pertinent surfboards are hanging from as surfing standards from techniques technologies were invented and perfected in Santa Cruz. One of my favorite things about this museum is that it's so homegrown thousands someday but even still the museum is an incredible Archive of the history of surfing and not just in Santa Cruz but throughout the world because so many tea has had remained out of next to that a beat up yellow ironing board rest against the wall on an ironing board somebody made this and they had this old Kim says almost everything in here came from the local community everybody just digging for stuff that you had whether it was boards pictures talking to your family members Yep I think we're very lucky to have it but you don't have to be a surfer to appreciate the Santa Cruz Surfing Museum it might be enough to stand shing in here and it's truly labor of love. The museum is managed by volunteers funded by donations and is always free to visit so pound piece of wood into the freezing water paddled out and stood up awards right here this is I growth redwood see how tightly granted this this is really heavy this is the kind of would that the the boards at the prince was becoming more popular contests were were coming around Brown now has a judge's is and asserting teenager showing some classy Paul he's declared the new champion of the serving state and then a few more steps and you're done we're only up to the ninety circus we're out of Space Kim hopes they can expand into the tubes you want a roll of quarters for this one we sent Bay curious reporter Jessica plot check and Intern Maggie Galloway to the museum and right away Maggie was drawn to an sermons warf walk through the doors of the Musee mechanistic and you'll find hundreds of vintage coin operated games machines it's free to get in but arm wrestling machine here we go that was quick Maggie tried the lighthouse smell the salty air here the waves crashing on steamer lane below you and imagine when one hundred forty years ago three Hawaiian princes loved to hunt but I'm working here I do just faster it's fun that is an amazing machine that was built in wrestling against a machine lost badly I am not a welterweight I'm probably more like a lightweight next we had to pier forty five in San Francisco right in the heart of eighteen fifteen it's a world ser- skied one hundred and thirty pipes in it it has Orchestra Bells Bass drum machines like there's the machine over there that has your firstborn child cry that was connor the second son and it was about one o'clock in the morning and he decided that he was hungry and it was my turn to feed them so just about to give him a bottle and I realize that snare drum and a symbol and that's the type of machine that you'd find in the middle of America round there's also little bits of you I understand in some it it's just find noises. He reported them himself my dad got his first machine when he was eleven years old he was playing Bingo in his school and he wanted to Bingo Tournament and they gave him the reliving their Childhood Memories Nostalgia I think is a really powerful drug and I verified that when I took out a machine but somebody did you know there's an archive dedicated to smells there's a museum full of propaganda and Listener Christina Castro told US could really use a new recording for my prime maybe machine so instead of giving him a bottle gave him a microphone in the machines back in for that one specific machine and they were so disenchanted because that one machine was gone that we brought it back and I don't take out the various background sound effects like in sowing the prairie. Have you played song of the Prairie yet oh yeah that's a good thing trip for fifty cents and there was a store not far from here in San Francisco that sold Penny Arcade Machines my dad found a small one tabletops I am at the Bay model over in Sausalito this

"On this show and other violent crime adds fuel to the campaign to recall. San francisco district attorney. Chesapeake the bob. Show us some city programs to launch innovative moneymaking schemes for the podcast and caller worries. About what a funny smell in his building. Maybe doing to his health all this more coming up. Bob's show episode nine. Welcome this is just. This is the bob the beast. Bob is again on holiday on holiday so who has not been on holiday this week. Well you have not been on holiday this week. That's not true. I was at Santa cruz beach boardwalk. Yesterday you were wow man. How was that did they. Check your tattoos. If you wanna know why things like. The january six insurrection happen in this country. Go to a place like santa cruz. Beach boardwalk on a saturday in the middle of summer and take a look at the specimen of humanity. The will see there. I take it. There is a lot of maga- people there are no of their maga- i don't know if they even think about that kind of thing but god damn it isn't ugly ugly country. We live in my friend. I stay away from the beach. They had This just opened cesspool out on the beach. I don't know what the city of santa cruz is thinking. I mean Basically the the tide comes in. And there's a big trench in the beach in the sand and then the tide goes out. And there's just this you know stagnant water. Left there in the siegel shit in it and there's rotten seaweed injured and the dogs combine their business shit in it and people. Just bring their kids out and they swim in this. No yes yes hard. The hundreds of families just standing around they go out and it's like four feet deep and the kids go in. They swim around people bring their dogs. Bhai dog lifts up a leg peas in their kids. Just keep on swimming. You know big fat momma's go in there. You know splashing around and This is our america that we live in today. You know. I don't know if you read. There was an incident at the santa cruz boardwalk. This week what happened well. Yeah some family showed up from I guess zehr somewhere on the other side of the hill and it was a filipino family. And the father had something tattooed on his arm or something or other being. I guess language. Philip filipina speaking. You know the way for identifying as a filipino. And he was forced to cover that tattoo up. Who forced him. Some of the security there at the border yeah. They thought they were like that. The gangs on your throne exactly exactly and years the whole thing. I think i they made him leave. The will you can be here with you. Got to put long sleeve shirt on. Or whatever yeah. That's pretty questionable. i'm sure it is. You know what what at the moment when you're in the moment what you choice do it or not. I mean i can understand where they're coming from to the extent that they've probably seen a lot of violence. Because i just being there this weekend. It was like the feeling that something could snap off any minute. I mean it is just you know people trying to share this facility and able to probably share things among their own family members because they're that level of living from the amid ella the lizard brain. I mean it is just at that level now. I haven't been on the boardwalk in some time there. he's going. my daughter was younger. That's thirty years ago. Forty years ago I don't know whether it's been there with the granddaughter. I don't think i have if i would've been during the week during the day. Yeah i don't think i have. Well you know what. I don't remember being that ugliest what i was going to say. It was always working class. And there's always some tensions between younger people you know came from different parts of town well speaking of classes. What was interesting so because you know they want to maximize the amount of people come in just pack the place and then it becomes you know people get pissed off because all the lines take a long time and tensions are boiling over and everything. So what is the solution to that. Is it to turn more people away to limit the number of people who can come on. No this the limit. The solution is who's willing to pay more money to be able to skip the line and so they're doing. They're doing this now at all these amusement parks it's you know. Look if you if you don't like waiting in long lines who pay a little bit more money and you can get a special pass and you can skip the line. I read about that at disneyland. They have this at the Santa cruz boardwalk standing in line at the haunted castle. And what do i see. But of course three tech look motherfuckers. Three pasty s white look kentucky as motherfuckers with their their. You know wide brimmed sunhats on because they probably haven't been out you know and seeing the light of day weeks and they walk three fucking in cells single white dudes you know and they walk right up to the front of the line. They flash some kind of past they've got and the lady you know stops the next car that comes out and just let these guys walk right on for another line of everybody else. Well that must have just a few people of it. Can't be doing much to help all of the aggravation and you know the simmering boiling hatred that you just sense among all the people on the on the boardwalk now I don't think we're going to run right down there. Verify this i mean. I don't know what the solution is sad. I thought of going to the boardwalk with the grandkids. Now that it's lifted. But i'm not going to go down there for that sort of nonsense not on the weekend. I take him during the week. I wouldn't go weekend no matter what even if there wasn't any nonsense to many people for so what else is going on. What else is going on. Chesa chess is always gone on several back to chesa Burglaries are up two hundred percent here and the most recent Outrage has been. This woman was beat down on lower pacific lower nob hill. I guess it was. It was lower knob hill The where it was. Because i knew the accused was arrested on russian hill. Here so much word happen. But his forces that are lining up against him or the same forces that he went up against in the election forces were lining up against chess. Chesa the chesa boudin san francisco's progressive district attorney. Yes and people voted for a progressive district attorney brand on. He ran on on the very policies that he is now being drawn across the coals of over Some of them were not working out really well. At all and response does not seem to have Endeared him to people that are concerned about especially the violence on asians Many of which is perpetrated by folks that have recently gone out of jail where have done time we're having a record of being violent and And also these home burglaries that are going on. There were going on and His policies of not Prosecuting Nonviolent property crimes. Well in the case of the the woman who got beat down Lady got beat down the the criticism there is that this was a guy with a record who had been arrested and the da had previously chose not to prosecute. Is that philipson. Well he tried. He was prosecuting him for his most. Recent offense And the judge that he went up against The wanted to hold on this time but the judge let them go so there's a lot of coverage in the papers that was misleading outright lies on abc. I believe it was. Abc and in the chronicle none of which was retracted or retracted quickly. That you know voting One released without bail wasn't true. Wanted to hold the other. The beer question raises for me. Is how many times have you been arrested since bodine came into office and whether bodine had Released him prior to this or not because he'd been arrested several times since two thousand sixteen when he was arrested for a murder case Two of which He wasn't the actual Where he didn't do the actual killing though he wasn't on the stabbing that went on apparently So that's a bigger question for me. And i don't have the answer to that yet whether bodine head signed off on him getting out prior to him beating down the little lady up on the hill But this is the this is what Drives all the criticism of bodine. It does you know and and and and there's a lot of criticism that's honest about about what's going on. He seems to have dug in his heels to on what his philosophy and what his policies on restorative justice and And is you know and The incarceration on letting me. I'll turn to locking people up Which most of us. By the way voted for both for a state proposition that reduced annelies for property crimes and For bodine so seems that most of us would like to figure out a way to do this without locking everybody up yeah. He got elected in the context of everything that was going on with black lives matter and all the information that was coming out about you know the outrageous murders of color across the country by police. And you know we gotta do something about it and restorative justice. Is this idea that You achieve justice by restoring the harmed person to their previous state before they were harmed and that. That doesn't necessarily come through. Just punitive measures of you know getting your blood. Thirst quenched by Punishing the wrongdoer but by Doing things to aid the victim and You know doesn't mean that you don't take measures to protect people from dangerous people but doesn't always mean that incarcerations the first The first to concept. So you know it's all part of prison. Reform is part of police. Reform that st how he got elected. And that is all well and good however you still need to keep people safe and protect people from dangerous people on the streets and he hasn't seemed to have quite figured out how to Balanced that with his agenda to reform on the state. Well it's it's it can often take more than a few minutes to figure out who who you have in custody. And they are to releasing that you know and when the policy is to release everybody's quickly as possible There's gonna be folks slip through the cracks here. One of whom apparently is a guy who beat down this woman. Ninety four year old woman and several other instances around town That he's being called on the carpet for he doesn't seem to be responding in a way. That's reassuring the public that he's got a grip on this. The police have created a narrative that it's all his fault but that's hardly true to You know The police did not want him as. Da he also had rent right around policy of investigating the police. That's not gonna get you very far with The police department. The police have just been such babies about this. Though you know. I mean people calling them and saying you know. I'm having this problem with criminals out. We'll talk to the da's office which is just you know passive aggressive Immature behavior or all the all of these. You know cops who are quitting and saying you know well. I'm taking my my career elsewhere because these people don't appreciate what do fuck you. You need to take responsibility for the problems in your profession and change with the times. And if you can't change then yeah maybe you're gonna get drummed out or maybe you should find something else to do but just simply saying well you know i'm gonna go transfer to a more conservative jurisdiction i'm gonna go work in walnut creek concord or some shit hole out in texas or something. That's that's your solution to being criticized. I mean i the just the the the skinned entitled attitude of the cops when they get criticized i just. It doesn't engender a lot of sympathy. Yeah there's a sense you have that they feel that there's a double standard that they should be judged differently than the rest of us and that's led to a lot of the feelings of resentment towards them not just their behaviour towards black people and other people of color when they have confrontations with the cost. But no matter what running you have with the cop. There's going to be a different set of rules for them. If they have a problem. They're going to get to see all the evidence before they before they tell you how things went down There it's you can't sue because of what they call a all the details the immunities that they have all these things that makes you wonder why they would need these kinds of protections yeah People make mistakes on the job. When a cop makes a mistake it could be lethal And i think most lethal events. The cops do our mistakes that as opposed to outright felonious murderous Thought you know it's just you people get scared and they do dumb things and cops get scared to and so we get somebody like chesa boonen in office and you know. He seemed kind of figuring it out as it goes along. What i you know to me. The problems that are going on in his administration are problems. That probably anybody who was trying to do something Kinda revolutionary would face. You know things that. They hadn't been able to foresee problems that they hadn't been able that they didn't have immediate solutions to so is the answer to that that we're just going to recall him. This this gets the whole issue of the recall gets into a whole other area which you know regardless of whether or not Chesa boudin is doing a good job or not as da. Are we just going to recall everybody who gets elected. Who don't like it and you know who's leading the recall is basically the people who were behind his opponents in the election. Who now they're trying to get a second bite at the apple. They didn't like the outcome of the election. And so they're abusing this recall process. The recall process is is there to deal with things like corrupt politicians people who take bribes people who are such a derelict. That they don't show up to work for weeks on end people who commit serious crimes while in office and you know. It's the same reason why we have impeachment the constitution. That's what the recall is for. The recall is not. I don't like the way that you are doing your job. And therefore i'm going to try to subvert a the results of a free and fair election and come in and ramrod my my candidate down the people's throats because i've got enough money to finance a a recall on us and and and to qualify for a special election. That seems to be a problem that we need to fix with there needs to be some kind of legislation. Passed to put limits on these recalls. Because it's out of control. I don't know how you can pass legislation without ending recalls or ending in this shoes or any of these things but it it certainly an abusive situation. And i very you know. I'll go vote in the recall. But i won't sign a petition for recall unless it's like you said unless it's four a crime that the person has committed an office there needs to be a higher bar to qualify for a recall. You can't just have it rely on. Can i get enough signatures. Because we just did. I mean it would be something like the person has committed a crime there under indictment. You know they're under grand jury investigation. Whatever it is they need to have done something serious enough to warrant Overturning the the result of a legitimate election. Why agree with you that they need to be the there should be. There should be evidence that they've done something besides follow their policies and policies that you don't agree with. I don't know how you would come up with that. You know maybe set a higher bar of how many people need to sign for recall. But i think he's got to be about more than signatures and more than petitions. It's got a it's got to be. There needs to be some kind of process going on legally with this person separate from just the fact that you don't like what they're doing there's gotta be something like You know they've they've. There's evidence that they've accepted bribes charged with this evidence. I mean there you know there's hearsay. There's you know unless they're actually charging by time somebody's charged. I can take a long time by signed. Somebody's convicted needed. I mean that can go on for a long time. It just because you're indicted doesn't mean you're guilty that's true but maybe that Is that at least sets the bar a little bit higher and then also gets gets. It gets the public at large looking at. Is this person Capable of doing their job. Is there too much of a risk here that this person has has has broken the law. I see that it's too far higher bar for most anybody get over. The did they break. The law must charged with a crime and convicted dentist. The recall i ending the recalls. Because it's gotten out of control and you know most recalls you can see the usual suspects or funding them because it takes money so it's usually a corporate run operation or a in this case. Run operation maybe But it's a big out. Big big money has to come in has come from somewhere whether in the left to the right to make these recalls happen in this case the committees that were Behind suzy loftus to which was putin's opponent. Yeah basically just trying to do a second election and right it's it's Know the it's london breed. It's the police union and it several developers that had their money behind him and technically to about those assholes because they distort the whole political process in san francisco now in every election. You know They put in the money that basically the amplifies their voice their power and their influence way beyond that of the average voter in san francisco. Speaking of money money. So you know. The bob show incurs expenses but currently does not generate any revenue You know this is a Situation all podcasts. Have to face every podcast in the world. It seems on patriotic or inserts annoying ads into its show or beg for donations. Are we begging so well. No no no. We're not going to do that. We we we think outside the box on the by product so well the gold coins. We're thinking of gold coins your clothes. Bitcoin we were announcing today. The launch of bob coin bob baker. I mean it's not exactly a launch. Because you can't buy bob coin yet. It's what they call in the industry. A soft launch a. We're we're announcing the concept of bob coin like it and we're we're putting it out there. What we what we need is someone who help us fork an existing blockchain by copying code off get hub and then you We want you to bob. Is that that code.

Organic yaks milk to make artisanal cheese. They have no problem paying to fly the milk overnight. They in fact they prefer to do that. So they can tell their friends that you know. The milk was flown overnight and So you can do that with your bob coin. You can also use bob coin by. And if t's not fungible tokens now we'll be token ising bob show episodes and bob show logo artwork. And if you want to own a piece of history and the the huge royalty streams that will ensue. That's an investment. You can hand down to your to your ears. we're also working on an rnd project. Download bob's brain and turn that into a ai. Which will then be a non fungible token. And if you're if you're handy with that kind of thing he could get in touch sweat equity in that for you is cryonics involved in that brain brain. Swath that we're talking about here No you will become virtual. There'll be no cherno cryonics. Cryan is no okay good. So that's bob coin out. Bob is very popular with a lot of people. There are going to put up with me anymore. They're not going to defeat me he's virtually i mean yes that's an nf t that You can hand down to you can have you know the bob a Talking to your your your children. Your grandchildren your great grandchildren and Will continue to learn through machine learning so think about that Now if you think it stops there you've greatly underestimated the innovation that We're capable of on the bob show to tell. The bob show has been working with the san francisco office of cannabis equity program which lowers barriers to cannabis licensing for those hardest hit by the war on drugs. And that is the bob show Equity applicants do not have to pay the five thousand dollars permit fee and They can also benefit from an incubator partnership that provides rent free space for three years or technical assistance to run your business. Now i don't know about you but when i see a program like this my first thought is i need to be on both sides of that deal. So naturally the bob show will be starting equity equity incubator and will be an equity applicant. I like how it sounds. The result is the bob show will be opening a we'd dispensary and retail location at fisherman's warf in san francisco. We're talking of course about weed world I knew we were going to get that off the ground. I knew it i knew it. This will be a family friendly. We'd shop for the tourists. And we're going to stop calling cannabis cannabis. We're going to call it. We'd that's that's the uh. The accepted terminology of the people. We're going to be a show. Yeah we're going to be a shop of the people we'd world This'll be yeah. Family friendly we'll have bob at the door as your greeter offering complimentary edibles dosed appropriately for all ages. Yes yes when your child. has had a we'd world complimentary edible. You will have the most enjoyable shopping experience of your life. Fisherman's wharf will be like you've never seen it. Before stress-free like floating floating on a cloud we'd world will be awarding a contract to a local tech startup named bob cart through the city of san francisco's local business enterprise contracting program. Which was a favorite of course of former public. Works director muhammad new before the fed's indicted him. Bob court will be making self-driving shopping carts with heads up displays to guide you through your purchases. we'd world so you don't have to think about anything. It's basically a repurpose rascal. Mobility scooter with some of those google glasses or the the facebook goggles right. And you just insert your credit card in the slot and You know if that's too much exertion. Of course bob will help you out with that at the front door and our. Ai will match you with appropriate purchases based on your available credit and the self driving car will drive you to the creek shelf locations. A robotic arm can load your shopping court with the appropriate quantity of products. And when you're shopping plan has been maxed out the Self driving cart will deposit you and your purchases on the sidewalk in front of a. We'd world where you can bag your own purchases and whatever receptacles you care to stuff of in and then Just continue exploring. Fisherman's wharf nice the contract that we'd world will award. Bob cart will be a single bid contract. Paid in bob coin. Of course bob. Cart is a venture capital back startup backed by above ventures the venture capital firm who will fund bob point exchange so the revenue for bob court will increase bob cards value. The transaction zimbabwean will increase the value of bob coin exchange that will allow bob ventures to sell its stock and bob cart and bob exchange on the nasdaq and once those sales have cleared. You probably won't be hearing much more from bob carter bob coin. Were bob so just in with us too. So that is That is our plan. Going forward for How we will be financing Bob show and like.

The bob schillt's all right so This week's musical interlude. We're going to hear the ghosts of san francisco by chris clark. Winner at the New york jazz film festival and twenty sixteen legendary motown singer. Chris clark seeing This original song. written specially for herb by john. Thomas book are christian anderson from the motion picture when the world came to san francisco star. Listen we used to people we. Yeah all was cafe de just malmoe those memories. My carbs saw the ghosts of san francisco. Say shadows and if you listen stone shadowlands in days to come as you can. Is we leads. Joe's watching you love with a lack said when was side dancing and some not a laws. Aw burn the same system. You stone satin robe all jay z. Days dreams too See just not no but just close your all been too. A shadow lucid. A installed all o be l. We're back do you have a. Do we have any calls coming in tonight. We do have Do you have a call Let's see if our caller is on the line Yes let's see. We have richard on the line. Good what about you tree good. I'm concerned about my health. For this reason. I live in an apartment and we just discovered that the door across from the over to the left that my neighbor was dead in there for about three weeks they discovered his body and there was a light smell but it was kind of weird. It was more like in the elevator next to his apartment and maybe more on the second floor third and then the fifth got a little bit of it and we really didn't know what was going on and my my managers on maybe there was like a dead rat in between the floors or something but we found out what it was because he didn't pay his rent. I found out that when they Pick them up. They said that he was in there for about three weeks. Now me smelling that. We're getting older and that coming into my system. Should i be alarmed. Can i get anything like a airborne disease or anything like that well You could get some kind of ghostly condition. I suppose that Maybe go sleep. I mean my understanding is dead. Bodies do not transmit disease through the air You know if if the neighborhood something like ebola or the black plague or something. It's possible there could be disease in the bodily fluids but you know unless you see like a river of fluids leaking out from under the door. There's not really anything to worry about. I don't think right exactly. i mean i understand. It doesn't smell very good. But i don't think it can make you sick if you nightmares. Well the most important advice that i would have for the caller is that you do not prioritize the disposal of the dead body over other important things in your life. That must get done like you know earning a living or caring for pets or attending social functions. The the smell can be dealt with by putting out some fragrant flowers or something in the hall. You know i. I like jasmine personally Maybe there's little things you hang on your car window. Yeah you know maybe a little pachulia or something. If you're a hippie you that kind of thing or but you know just go about your business. Do not let the dead body distract you from the essential tasks that must get done. The body will eventually become so desiccated in mummified that it won't smell anymore and then it's somebody else's problem but the bottom line richard is don't let other people make their problem. Your problem especially dead people and I don't think worry about no Unless that person comes back to haunt him well. The dead person might be more inclined to do that if He messed with the body all the more reason. Just leave it alone. Talking about the body says it doesn't smell. Well maybe guys has feelings. Doesn't that's true. You might not want to talk publicly about that anymore. Right offerings and deodorant. He comes back. I think the flowers is the way to go person. Yeah okay well. Lavender lavender's always good but always have that memory. I mean maybe she gets something that you know you don't you don't really like the smell of that much that way you know. It won't have this association with dead people for you muslim onions or something. There's some good onions garlic very good. Just something to cover it up until until it goes away all right well as another Satisfied bob phone caller and anything else. That's it. We only have one caller while and he didn't much to say he's just worried about that body. I don't have anything else to say. Okay better to quit while we're ahead. Let's quit while we're ahead.

Jesus, Mary chain are headlining a bunch of great underground bands on the Bill. You can find me. They're excellent. Mario car go. Gosh. I wanted to music festivals too, but all right.

Excellent Peter, go. I I'm going stars born Jack London the waterfront flicks. It's playing on July eleventh. Made me cry last year. I'm sure I miss some things because I was so motion all stars born seen it outdoors with a bunch of your neighbors. I think it's fantastic. So that's my pick. Very excited for this guide.

This episode is brought to you by Cox with contour TV from Cox. You can find all your favorites all in one place. It does it have the YouTube you bet at what about that net flicker thing Netflix, too. And although superhero movies, contour has all the latest titles on demand, and oh my grandkids love that big green guy, though. I prefer the one with the hammer myself. Okay. I think we're done here now. Get all your favorite apps shows and movies, right on contour TV from Cox, welcome to the podcast, summer fun guide. Mark Carmen, dosa and iden- vizier. You got to say something. Hello. I'm gonna use that. Do another taste use this as Miami right? That's why it's too hot today and we're, we're like, just buried in our summer fund guides perfect. Well equipped to deal with somebody, but we can tell you what to do with yours. Summer fun guides. That's why we're here. We've been working on this using our expertise as chronicle culture, writers and editors to let people know what to do this summer Mari car. How did this how did this project start, and how's it going? So we really wanted to create a one stop shop for folks who are either visiting for the first time or even people who really just love being tourists in their own area. And so we wanted to create this, this landing page, basically, where you can find all these things to do, and the and we wanted to really use our critics voice. We are fun people. We have a really great time in our department, we go and see a lot of great things we to have access to a lot of things that, that really will help our readers figure. About what they, they want to do this summer. And that's something that you bring to the department. I, I remember when you were hired just looking on Twitter, Instagram and just seen all the stuff that you were going to actually, I think made me probably go to a few more events. How many events do you think you go go to your Mari car year? Yeah. God. Yeah. I don't know. I'd like to think I try to go to like five concerts a month. And I've been really ramping up on plays because, you know, a love lillies reviews, and it's always kind of fun to go to play first, and then reader review later, definitely been going to more. Opera, thanks to 'cause men. I mean, our department working fire department has made me more cultured person, and it's really been awesome. But yeah, I would say at least five live, things a month so that, that. Yeah, how's your hair your guides going iden-? You you're carrying a lot of a lot of weight on the skied project claim I'm basically spend the summer living at music festivals as to set set me up in my own Cabana off behind the porta-pottys this it's amazing. There's so much great. You know, I cover pop music and music in general. And there's just so much if you wanted to go out to see a festival, or a huge concert like a huge touring every weekend. Northern california. There's no better place. It's I, I had to, like, cut the list down to so they would fit otherwise it'd be an endless scroll. So that that's been an issue with me is, is fitting all the stuff in and I'm going to have probably links to everything, but I'm not going to be able to highlight everything because there's so much stuff and I've got, like five or six of these guides, and I'm focusing as much as I can on inexpensive and free stuff as much as I can. And there's a lot of it. I mean, it it's kind of nice to think, you know, we live in the expensive place, but providing a guide something that our readers and listeners can check out that they can do it at a kind of a low price still. I wasn't sure if I was going to find that I, I like, how are our guides really kind of run the gamut because he go from a free like or a relatively free or cheap experience at like the county fairs and then you can go to? Napa Valley festival, and the tickets are kind of ridiculously high, you can go to cluster fast, and, you know, for more than twelve hundred dollars or something, you get unlimited fries. I mean that's like the perk for that. It's kind of crazy. So if you wanna ball out, you certainly can do that. And we'll have that in our guide, but if you want to be a baller on a budget. We can do that, too. And Marc car people can check this out at datebook dot as of chronicle dot com. Yes. So we will be trickling out guides here in their starting this week. But then the summer fun guide that landing page, I referred to earlier that one stop shop will be available June twentieth on the eve of the first day of summer cool awesome. Well, I thought we could just give a little taste of some of our guides here. This is not going to be as comprehensive as the actual guide and I'd like to start with outdoor movies. I love outdoor movies. I love the idea that, you know, you can set up your portable drive in. Green and have people come and have it be this community event. I've done a couple of these myself. We did a couple with the chronicle over at children's fairyland and they were complete blast. When I had my parenting blog the poop, there were only a couple of these, and we would definitely promote them when we could and I went out to a couple now they're everywhere, I counted. There are more than sixteen of these, and I think the reason is they're relatively inexpensive to put on. You can get a sponsor to couple thousand dollars. You can have this event for your community. They're everywhere the original ones, San Francisco, Dolores park, San Francisco neighborhood theater foundation film night in the park at Dolores park, Washington square park. That's still happening. I love some of the picks that they have in these adventures of Priscilla Queen of the desert on August. Fourth starts off the San Francisco neighborhood theater foundation. I thought. We're all going to be like, you know, the same couple of movies like, and there is a lot of Black Panther in goonies. But there's some really good picture lady bird at Washington square park on August twenty fifth and fair Spillers day off September eighth at union square. They do this every year. It's a really good event. San Francisco neighborhood theater foundation has fought for things like the existing theatres into get the new mission back and it's a great group. And these are always really fun in really fun parks in the city, the really makes up for not having any drive ins. It's like I always consider it's not summer until I've seen a movie outside like, that's definitely on the checklist of summer things to do. It is a lot of fun. I remember taking my dogs to see lady on the tramp in the parking lot. Yeah. I love doing it because you can pack like your own food. You don't have to worry about the, you know, crazy prices at the movie theater for your popcorn, or whatever, you know, you could just bring your own baggage chips, and it's, it's a really fun like you get a picnic and a movie all in one yet. No. And they're everywhere. Now they're in Hayward, Redwood City Dublin's doing it. There's like four places up in Marin San Anselmo in mill valley. A couple more. I just want to highlight that are places that I think are kind of special Jack London square is coming back with their waterfront flicks on Thursday nights crazy rich Asians on June twenty-seventh, a star is born, July eleventh and Spiderman into the spider verse, which I loved, they've come on this podcast, the directors that's on August eighth in Oakland and Santa Cruz beach, boardwalk Wednesday nights at nine pm, and they have a great selection school of rock on June twentieth. Sixth, the outsiders on July twenty fourth and a wedding singer. Such a good movie. And it doesn't come up that often that's July thirty first. So that was just a couple more. I wanted to highlight outdoor movies. I'm interested to see how many people are going to start singing it. The star is born like an unofficial sing along. I'm sure yeah. No, I got an extended edition. The other day DVD that had the extended songs on it. So hopefully they will play that Persian. Yeah. So Mari car what have you got? So I did want to start off by talking about cluster fest, because that, that festival the comedy and music festival. That is the first weekend of summer and it's right here in downtown San Francisco, I'm particularly excited to, to see Amy Poehler out there. That's it's always interesting to see which women are chosen to headline these kind of big events. I'm a little concerned though, because it always. Turns into big name, female act and friends, and that's exactly what they did with Amy Poehler, and I'm like, does she need to have that qualifier. But I so I'm really excited to see her. She's going to be the, the first days headliner on Friday, June twenty-first, she'll be at the Bill Graham civic auditorium stage and then the roots are going to be there. Always love watching the reeds. I've watched them few times, you've too, right? Yeah. Has some at Davies symphony hall, and it's one of my favorite like concerts ever. I mean they were so good. And it was such a good venue. I saw them at mountain winery. So was outdoors and I think they even came out into the crowd and do like a conga line. Well, maybe not a conga line, but something really cool like that. I spoke with I had an interview with big Frisia last week about cluster Festas. She's appearing there as well. And she's, so she plays a lot of festivals and she's so amazing to watch. If you're there that weekend, I highly recommend catching that show, even if you don't know what's happening. It's going to you're going to become aware of it just walking by to get your unlimited French fries, and you're going to stop in your tracks and watch because she's that good. Yeah. If you don't know what tweaking is you will definitely find out by watching her side. I, I think it's cool, how it started off, as kind of this comedy and music festival, and they don't call it that anymore. The music part, I think they played it down a little bit. The roots are kind of the really big non comedy act, but there's a lot of comedy acts that they keep bringing in Dan Finnerty in the Dan band and Craig Robinson and the nasty delicious are coming in Craig Robinson nasty delicious. I don't know if you've seen him I thought it would be kind of like his. Office space stuff, and he actually brings a pretty big Bandon and accomplish banned. It reminds me a little bit more of the blues brother's with comedy and sexiness, and whatever so, so nice to and like there is a sexiness that he brings to the keyboard. So I'm excited to check that set out to he's going to be there with, as that on Saturday, June twenty second on the colossal stage, which is the outdoor stage. So that should be really fun. It's going to be at five thirty to six thirty. So the sun will still be out, so not quite as romantic lighting guests, but it should be fun. I think the, the non headliners are often that, that group just below the people who are on the billboard. When you drive down the freeway. There's often really good people there. I remember two years ago. My favorite act was Hannibal Burress, and he was in Bill Graham auditorium at, like five o'clock last year, Nick Kroll and John Mullany just killed it same thing. Like, in the Bill Graham auditorium at six o'clock or so, before the headliners this year, I think, Neal Brennan is coming. He's sort of one of those, you know, comics comic types, he co created the Chapelle show with Dave Chapelle and has been involved. With so many great things. I'd be really interested to see him Anthony, just sell Nick is really a rising comic, and very good on stage and Chelsea Peretti Oakland native former Brooklyn nine nine star. I think she's fantastic her last Netflix special was so great. She'd probably be the one, I'd make sure I didn't miss, and she's playing Saturday. Six forty. Five Bill Graham stage. Same thing. I mean some of those areas right before the headliners you're going to see some of the best stuff. Dean, what do you got? Well so we already published this up now. It's called the essential bay area summer concert guide, and we're midway through festival season on its I went through I spent days putting this list together. It's been years now, actually because I started doing this years ago, and I kind of follow along with all the music festivals. Big and small and it's just a guide for seeing music outdoors in the bay area. You could spend the whole summer just outside watching great bands, and it's funny because summer is when you get all the retro package Bill. So if you're like an eighties kid, you can see all the bands. You always wanted to see like all together on Wednesday JR. All the nineties bands or banned from the two thousands. Also, there's you know, there's just great outdoor venues that don't get used year round. But, you know, like the Greek theater in Berkeley, which is a beautiful place. See a concert, you have you of the city you're outside. So their season is, kicking off log anita's, the brewery up in pedaling by, they have an outdoor stage, go drink hang out, watch great music. And like we talked about earlier, you can splash out for, you know, if you're going to outside lands, you can get the VIP experience for a couple of thousand dollars and sit in a tent, and, you know, have your private bar, or there's a lot of just free concerts, or cheap options that we have the phone Odell sill festival coming up in San Francisco in the middle of June, which is a free concert that they took a year off. It's a free festival, the bands are as well known, but it's going to be good music, good time hanging out with people. Beautiful space, and it's like if you're skater, they still let you skate while the shows are going right, cool. And we mentioned the movies at the Santa Cruz beach, boardwalk, but Friday nights, they have a free concert series and the lineup is, you know, the English beat opens it on June fourteenth. And then you have of course, smashmouth I don't I'm up in the last time smashed Moroccan outright now play. Y and t will be playing this year again. Yeah. Wine t living color ten thousand maniacs, probably without Natalie, merchant Stevens area, who was the lead singer of journey for about five minutes between Steve Perry and the guy they found on YouTube. Did you say living color, you living color? Now, they're, they're a free act at the, at the on August ninth, not a living color cover band actual living. That's crazy. Yes. So if you're not going to be outside lands, you can catch living color at the boardwalk, I'm taking that day off Mari car. And of course, the best free festival in the world is the stern grove festival. Sunday afternoons right in San Francisco, stern grove packet picnic take a little blanket, and they that kicks off June sixteenth with dig -able planets. That's going to be so fine. They have midst e who is an indie rock singer songwriter. And she's announced that she's taking some time off. So last chance to see her July fourteenth the San Francisco Ballet's on July twenty eighth. And then this, this is a good double Bill for like ninety s kids eightieth, or eighty kids, the psychedelic furs, and James together August fourth, and then the Eisley brothers closed out on August eighteenth, and that's all free. I mean like that's that's pretty pretty amazing. You just show up. You don't have to do anything you wake up that morning. You're like, I'm gonna go see an amazing band. It's still funk has the the to see everybody. In all the nooks and crannies of that little forest, you know, like. You know like. Trees, and then everybody's dancing. Oh, it's such a great by I remember my first year back. You know, when I first started working here, I was like, wait. How did I not know about stern grove when I was growing up, but it's because I grew up in San Jose. So we've never come up this way. But now, oh my gosh. That's what I do on my Sundays when in the summer, and it is just like it makes me happy, if you ever feel like you had a bad week, and they're bad people in the world, go to stern grove and just check out the crowd people watch their cause is just it'll make you so happy. Then if you wanna go camping or here, like reggae or just go up into the redwoods, you know, there's so many festivals for that around here. We have the high Sierra music festival, that's over July fourth weekend. We have the Kate wolf music festival. Is a lot in northern nights music festival for all you, cannabis lovers, because this is the it said, what is it the first time they're going to allow recreational cannabis dispensing and consumption onsite? I know most people are like, wait, what are you talking about? Everybody lights up at a festival, but technically you're not supposed to so. But this one says. Yeah. And that's over in cooks valley campground Mendocino Humboldt county area. It'd be interesting one way. Favorite favorite festivals of the summer is the his burger booklet, which happens and moss would park in Oakland that's over July fourth weekend, and they always get. It's an amazing mix of like underground garage rock and indie bands. And they always get a great headliner, like they've had Devaux play Iggy pop has played and this year they have the Jesus, and Mary chain are headlining both days of that, like, right in the middle heart of Oakland outside. That's amazing. And the funny thing is there's a. Kaiser. Right. There's always like the poor people inside Kaiser who are listening to Iggy Pop's thing I wanna be your dog, imagine if you were you thinking either, you're giving birth or you're like in hospice, you know, and burger boo goes down there. There's no way you're not hearing that yet. But I love it. It's, it's so much fun. So a lot, you know, I don't wanna take up the whole hour or whatever. But the check out the guy, there's so much to do. That's a big one, though. That's that's understandable, cool. I'm excited. I got I got I d is now I wanted to talk about arcades. I've written about high scores in Alameda and Hayward. But one thing that's been developing is old school eighties, arcade. These people from New Jersey came and decided to start just an arcade. Like they had when they were kids, one little twist that I've been enjoying is they got it and had to call it a museum because there were these are chaotic eighties era, Feinstein era, arcade, laws on the books in every city in the bay area are every county and city saying that you couldn't have arcades near a school, you couldn't have arcades operating during certain hours because everybody thought arcades. We're going to turn kids into Samis, which they didn't. But the, the laws are still on the books, so they had to call it a museum. They can't call it in arcade. And it's the high scores museum, arcade museum, but the cool thing about that is they only did that to get around the laws. But then now they've been creating these museum piece games every year. They have these artists build the cabinets and then they have people on their staff who are really into the technical side, build these, you know, modify game so that you can play organ trail. They have an organ trail game. Now they have a super smash brothers mealy from the GameCube era that they turned into an arcade, cabinet with the controllers that you can pull out and play with three of your friends. They have a legend of Zelda, Nintendo era thing that they built into an arcade cabinet. So I love going down there in the summer because that's usually when they debuted their new museum cabinet and now they have, like four of them. So it's sorta if his turning into a museum, even though that wasn't the intention. I love high scores. I loved museum mechanic. Best reason to go to pier thirty nine and fisherman's wharf, even if you're someone who lives here and not a tourist my favorite thing to do like, if people come into town, and they're like, what should I do? I don't want to do the touristy things, but I wanna see San Francisco. I tell them take the F line and go down to museum economic have some fun there. You can look around a little bit around fisherman's Warf, if you wanna do a little bit of a tourist thing, and then take the F lion all the way over to the Castro. If you wanna stop through downtown, and take a look there you can. And then go see a movie of the Castro. Those are like my to sort of book ends of fun things to do. If you wanna be a San Franciscan and kind of be a tourist for a day. So love museum economic couple little ones, the subpar, miniature golf course, which is also an arcade. They have ski ball and arcade games. They were in Alameda, and then they opened up. In gear Adelie square, they have miniature golf there. They have games and it's such a cool place again another touristy area where natives should be going so subpar. And then one I never have talked about enough is free gold. Watch it was a printing shop in the hate kind of out of the way they had this long hallway and didn't really know what to do with it. So they decided to put a bunch of pinball machines in there than they added some arcade games, and it's right in the hate right? Kind of on the other side, really close to keys are stadium and you just go there play a little bit of pinball. It is coin operated. Somehow they got around the arcade laws. I don't know how and a super cool place that is really kind of this organic place. It just grew out of someone's good idea what I liked about free gold watches. They have like the hyper modern pinball games, which you don't know what's going on, really like flap, the paddles once or twice on it does its own thing. But then they have the really old ones that. The balls. You're just takes five minutes for the ball to like go and hit a bumper. And so that, that's a lot of fun. Another mini golf place is urban putt, which is in the mission right in the heart of the mission. And the great thing about that is, has a full bar. And a really good restaurants that you can eat drink and play golf, and it's really creative. It's almost like I don't know if they were involved, but it feels like burning man, people set it all out, because it's all these contraptions machines and stuff. And it's, it's, it's a lot of fun. Yeah. Yeah. I love it. When like San Francisco, people do San Francisco things. And then it turns into a great piece of entertainment. I mean, that's sort of what happened with the exploratorium and other people are still doing it today. Yeah. So Mari car. What do what do you got? Well, so other things if you guys aren't into what we just talked about, you can escape the heat at a museum, Charles de Morais are critic. He has he has a list that's going to be going online live about some of these really cool exhibits that are going to be opened up. So actually right now on view is the Andy Warhol exhibit at MoMA, but he also mentioned, some really fun pop up said Minnesota street project, and he talks about at hardy at young, so there's, there's plenty to catch if you're an art lover and kind of wanted to spend your time at the museum, which like even if you're not an art, lover, spending your time in the museum is pretty rag, his the fine arts museums. You can hang out at the cafes and it's good food. Good drinks. It's beautiful out there and then the tower at the young, you can see the city. It's, it's beautiful there, how many people? Involved. How many how many people in datebook are involved with these guys? It's not just us three. Oh, yeah. There's like I don't know ten twelve people kind of, you know, you're getting the best choices from the, the most fun people in at the chronicle. We're combining our forces and Ryan even got into it Ryan got into costs. Yeah. Ryan, he, he has seven bay area bars to grab a drink outside and soak up the sun, one of his first ones. It's a double Bill L Rio in Virgil, c and I actually checked it out yesterday. And it was so much fun out there. I you know, sometimes you forget that there are these great places to sit outside San Francisco. A lot of people think it's foggy people stay indoors, but no, there's plenty of really fun places to, to drink outside and Virgil, c and L real the right next to each other L Rio was pop an office today. They were like salsa being and all this stuff. And then on Virgil seaside everybody's like poking their head into the fence to see what. Going on at El Rio. But it's just as fine on that patio. He also mentions wild side, west L touch show, one of my favorite places in the mission. It's a it's a rooftop, where you can get really great Moscow, Margaritas. There's pitchers, and I loved, her empanadas. He also mentions the Parkside which I know you like Peter or do I love the perk side, and I for next year's summer guides? I want just an Empanada guide. That'd be good. There's quite a few good places iden-. So I understand that festivals are not for everybody. So I've also put together a guide of the biggest tourists coming through the bay area and the there's some really big ones this summer. But, you know, for the people who don't want to be with among while you're still going to be around a huge crowd. But if you don't want to like being the dir-, if you don't want to use porta-pottys, if you wanna be in a building, like a nice or. Arena. Type building AP center. There's a lot of tourists coming through that you can catch one of the first ones is Carly. Rae jepsen, you know, her from commun-. Maybe she'll be at the Bill Graham civic on June twenty eighth. I am so excited for her new album because well, like over the weekend on repeat, I, I literally had too much on thong. It's so good. Do use of favor download that. She's a lot of fun live. Even if you've never heard anything else, she's done, but that one song, she's fun to watch. I'm so glad I got over the whole call me. Maybe. Thank I hated it. And so I didn't wanna listen Carly Rae jepsen for very long time. And I'm glad that I got back into her and that she's grown up to, you know her her music's awesome. And that weekend is pride weekend. Isn't it? I believe, is that it's up against the. Yeah. So that should be a really great concert, Paul McCartney who Peter and I have seen numerous times, and we've probably seen the same show like twenty years. It's like. It's a Broadway show. He does the same thing says the same words but it's fantastic because it's all the Beatles songs. It's the wings songs. It's so's songs. He'll be SAP center July tenth. I remember the first time I saw him with that Coachella. And I was like, whoa, you could see he was on the big screens. And then I saw him at Dodger Stadium to I've saw I've seen him a couple of times. And it's amazing because he's he's not. I mean how old is he? And he plays for three hours or something like thirty five. I was really impressed with his ability to because there's a Candlestick Park where I saw him right before they shut it down, and it was not pleasant. You talk about, like cluster fest, the comics, maybe not liking being outdoors at night. I'm sure Paul McCartney. I mean, maybe they have some, you know, heaters there's something, but it was still not a real pleasant thing. He kept playing and playing and playing and playing the hits. And he says the same words we compared notes iden-, but he says them really earnestly. I mean you know if you just if you're a fan, you're not gonna notice. Exactly. Yeah. Hot on the bohemian rhapsody movie, Queen is coming back, not with Romney Malik, unfortunately, but with Adam Lambert, they'll be at the SAP center July fourteenth. The preservation hall jazz band is going to be at the theft, Jess center. Four days, the summer, and they are an incredible live act and they're playing an incredible venue. You'll be up closed you can get really sweaty. And then the Rolling Stones are coming. We they had to postpone. The tour has mic had heart surgery. And then a week later he posted a YouTube. He posted an Instagram clip of him dancing up rehearsals. And so now they're coming to Levi stadium on August eighteenth. And you know you've got to see the stones. He speaking of people like older people who have insane amount of energy. Gosh, I remember seeing Jagger, and it's like that guy does not stop. You know, squirming around on stage. It's insane. Right. And then, of course, the very end of the summer the chase centers opening and kicking off that opening that venue will be Metallica with the San Francisco symphony. I think that tickets sold out sold out like in a second, and it's to the end of the second day. Right. But that's all. Completely sold out, but so. Right. As summer ends the chase Senator, which is the new home of the warriors will be opening in San Francisco. And they've got a full slate for September and on. So yeah, let's do very cool. Well, I think we gave them a good taste, but there's a lot more right? Mari car planning. I mean, we have county fair. We didn't even talk about the, the ax at the county fair that you can catch. I mean I'm looking at San Mateo county. Fair lineup right now has mixed lot like what air supply Moore's day in the time, like ninety degrees to I mean there's a lot of stuff to do. Sam whiting heat 'as, a whole guide to his favorite murals in the city. So you can do your own little walking tour that won't cost money. You can do everything I got something on trains, and care cells, just like little Ellen lily our theater critic who also. So is a avid bicyclist, she's she has a guide that she put together for, for wheels, just like non automotive wheels. Okay so online. It'll be out on June twentieth. The day before summer, and then it will also be in the pink section in July datebook dot chronicle dot com. Yep. Awesome. Look for it. Thank you both for coming on sharing your guides. I just listening to this now there's a bunch of stuff I wanna do on your guide. So mission accomplish. Thank you. Thanks guys. You are listening to the San Francisco Chronicle.

I got 5G on it

"Does your kid love to build stuff? How about having your kid build stuff that actually teaches your kids stuff about math and science and it still funds? So you can kinda trickled into doing it. Kiwi. Co is offering you listener right now the chance to try their educational projects for free go to Kiwi co dot com slash explained to redeem the offer and learn more about their projects for kids of all ages. While the country mobile telephone stations are being expanded to become links in a nationwide network, the mobile telephone greatly expands the scope of voice communication. It provides added telephone service and our principal cities. Allows for more efficient operation at railway. Terminals furnishes, easy, contact between the land and vessels on our waterways and at the same time adds to the convenience of travel. It provides an easy way of keeping in touch with the eagles on the major highways. It is one more step toward telephone service for anyone anytime anywhere. Stephen overly you, cover technology at politico, the whole world seems right now to be at odds over the future of telecommunications. What is happening? What's happening is perhaps the largest sort of shift in how we use our technology and really what's behind. This is something called five G which ends for fifth generation, and it's essentially a much faster form of computing than what we have even today using our smartphones all the apps, we use kind of the technology that powers that is about to get faster. It's about to get stronger, and there's a global battle right now about who controls that future. And at the center of it is this Chinese company hallway, which is like what like China's AT and T, but even bigger and more powerful exactly they're the largest telecommunications network provider in the world. And so what that means is a lot of the networks around the world like AT and T R the Verizon's of the world rely on on way technology. They're also the world's second largest provider of smartphones. They're behind Samsung, but actually bigger than apple in terms of providing phones around the world. And so they're just this massive company with a lot of reach. And there's these real security concerns because of their ties to the Chinese government. And and the US has not been getting along with. Wow way for a minute. What's the history of that beef? Right. So there's all this tension right now, but really concerns about while we go back to the Obama administration. You know in twenty twelve congress released a report that essentially outline security concern. Surnames that while y and z T E, which is another Chinese telecommunications company could be providing the Chinese government access to US data or US telecommunication networks, if their technology were to be widely adopted while way Z T seek to expand in the United States. But as a result of our investigation, we do not have the confidence that these two companies with their ties to the Chinese government can be entrusted with infrastructure of such critical importance again, our advice to the private sector is this your obligation is to consider a larger data protection and national security implications of your business decisions, and we would not advise doing business with these companies. Certainly since that time you've had lawmakers who position themselves as real hawks on national security, or on defence that have been raising concerns about these companies. Why is this upgrade to five G such a big deal? Like what exactly is it? And why is it such a game changer? I remember I think we all live through the update from three G to four G and like I still use wifi most of the day. So I I'm just a little confused about that. I think a lot of people don't necessarily realize how often they are actually relying on these telecommunication networks now more than ever. Yeah. So winger in your car, for example, and you're trying to use your phone. You know, chances are you don't have wifi in your car, you're relying on or when you're taking the train or in more situations, you'll encounter where you wanna use your phone you want to transfer data and wifi may not be available. So one of the reasons five G is such a significant. Update is it's going to be much faster than for g which is what we have in a lot of places now like how much faster about one hundred times hundred times faster than what we have now as with most telecommunication networks, you know, it will probably depend where you are in the service in your area. Like, it won't be a hundred times faster if you have t mobile. I've no comment on this. Telecommunications abilities. But you know, it will be patchy I think anytime we're talking about technology update including five, gee, there's what companies promise, you know, what they're marketing tells you and you actually encounter in the world real world. So how exactly does while way? You're any other telecom company implement five G like what is the technology. That's actually being built right now. It's a great question. An interesting question because five G networks will actually look quite different from the four g networks that we have today. Okay. Which is part of what makes it a significant investment for any of these companies trying to do this line of work to break it down as simply as I can right now, we're used to having sort of these big cell towers, right that sort of transmit, you know, over vast areas five G is going to be structured differently. You're going to actually have a lot of small towers, not even towers actually their boxes that could really be affixed to the top oversight of a building. And you're going to have many of these smaller cells around cities, for example. Okay. Sort of many many transmitting much stronger signals over a shorter range. So how does the sort of implementation of five G across the world. But especially saying China, the United States caused this feud between the US and while way in China to escalate so right now, there's this debate over who builds out those five G networks who's going to create the equipment that goes in those different cell boxes. And so we're at this critical point as these networks are just getting started where the companies that build them out are going to be locked in in many ways, you know, you'll have competitors. But you know, once you've made this huge investment in this infrastructure. That's the company that's running your networks. And so it's a pretty pivotal question. And I think that's one of the reasons why they're so much attention on while way right now, we also have things like the trade talks. We have broader concerns about China's efforts to dominate the globe. Particularly when it comes to technology and innovation. And that's also part of what's fueling this debate. I think there's a real fear that China could pull ahead of the United States on this. And that there will be consequences for that. And what about the security concerns with China? What's the US most fearful of their if China's say implements five G networks here. So, you know, for these five G networks to work a lot of data a lot of telecommunications. Or in a phone communications is going to be transmitted across them. And so that would include sensitive information for the individual could be things like private phone calls or how you're using your computer your mobile phone for businesses. It could be transmitting sensitive information about their company or it could be kind of controlling devices within the organization, including big machinery in their in their manufacturing facilities, and for the government. It includes transmitting sensitive information, whether that's defense information or just any sort of federal information. And so there are. Concerns among US officials that if while way has built out these networks, and they have strong ties to the Chinese government. The government could essentially use those networks to gather that information to affectively spy on the US government or US citizens. There is some legitimacy to that. You know, there are concerns about security laws in China, for example, that require companies to provide information to intelligence officials. Traditionally China has been much more involved in its economy. And it's big companies. Sometimes owning big stakes in those companies. I think that is what's fueling a lot of the national security concerns about what way and how is the US acting on those concerns. So the US has taken some some pretty bold steps who last year congress passed defense spending Bill and within that legislation they effectively barred federal agencies from using always technology, and they barred. Those agencies from using contractors that use why technology. Yeah. In the US is the largest consumer certainly in the country, if not the world US government is the largest consumer in the country, if not the world in so that's a lot of agencies and a lot of companies now in the United States that can't use Weiwei technology or Z T technology, again, another Chinese telecom provider. And so that was pretty significant step. It really limits. The business that these companies can do in the United States. The Trump administration is rumored to be looking at other actions. They could take against while way against the. But for right now this act by congress is probably the most significant step and there are lawsuits, right? What's happening there? One of the real points of tension. Recently has been a lawsuit that to lawsuits actually that the Justice department here has filed against wall way against one of its executives arguing that the company has violated. The US sanctions against Iran, and that the company has stolen intellectual property from T mobile specifically, but from US companies and these lawsuits which were filed at the end of January have. Essentially taken what's mostly been a legislative debate and kind of an economic debate and has now dragged it into the courts, and that's one of the key reasons that I think wow way has been defending itself. Much more vocally lately, you know, after these lawsuits were filed, for example, while ways founder who's typically pretty private and quiet person gave a couple of interviews to western media defending the company saying, it's not a tool for Chinese spying in that, you know, the company is being inappropriately maligned by the US government. What's mean each infield? The Chinese government has clearly said that it won't ask companies to install back does and world way will not do it. Either our sales revenue is now hundreds of billions of dollars. We are not going to risk the disgust of our country, and our customers all over the world because of something like that we will lose all our business, and then we would not be able to repay the banks. I'm not going to take risks. I said I would shut the company down also to express a kind of determination law. We will not do this even more recently than that. While way has hit back with a lawsuit of its own sort of essentially accusing congress of behaving unconstitutionally when it banned Weiwei's technology from federal agencies saying that congress doesn't have the ability to penalize specific company when the company has not actually been found guilty of any wrongdoing was socially, and if and when to control I object to what the. The US has done. This kind of politically motivated act is not acceptable. The US likes to sanction others whenever there's an issue. They'll use such methods. We object to this. But now that we've gone down this path will let the courts settle it. So we got while way and China flexing on one end and the United States flexing on the other where does this go? Well, I think it's important to note that this is not a debate. That's limited just to the United States really the whole world has been pulled into this partially because these five G networks are going to be global and while some countries share these national security concerns, not all of them do and that's creating a real point of tension. The past few days at this point the program had Luke Vander Pu-Gon today. Explain producer to talk about his cO experience. Because since he sorta young I I took our project that keeping co sent us and showed it to Luke and record his reaction. But but Luke never actually fulfilled or built the project. I thought it'd be nice to give to an actual young person. Like someone under the age of ten and my neighbor Jackson came to mind last year. He had a birthday. So I wrapped up project and wrote, you know, two Jackson happy birthday on the box. And I left it on his front porch right before he would be leaving for school because I kind of know what time in his family leave for school and just this week since Kiwi co was back advertising on the show. I texted Jackson's dad, Terry. And I said Terri the do Jackson ever get the gift I left on the porch the Kiwi co project about Wales and Terry said, he never saw the thing there projects are so. Oh desirable that they'll get stolen off your porch. But in like twenty minutes, he co dot com slash explained is the place to go to learn more about Kiwi. Co you could try for free. They're fun for the whole family K. I w I c o dot com slash split. So Stephen Hauer other countries reacting to while ways expansion, and this sort of tension between these two superpowers the reactions of other countries have really been mixed. And what's interesting, the US has mounted a really aggressive campaign to convince other countries that while way poses a serious threat that it should be banned from building out five G networks. It's something that top u s diplomats security officials have made a real push for globally, just recently. For example, the secretary of state Mike Pompeo said that the US could withhold intelligence from countries that use always technology is a pretty bold claim, but I think points to the seriousness with which the US is trying to export these concerns about while way. I should say not all not all countries are biting, you know, I think for a variety of reasons, but mostly you're hearing countries trying to make up there. Mind for themselves about how real these national security concerns are whether the US maybe has other motivations here. So whose team USA and whose team while way? You know, I'd say in terms of team USA two of the countries that have come out strongest against while way, would be Japan and Australia. Both have taken pretty bold steps to restrict the use of alway- as they build out their own five G networks. Okay. But the real focus for most people is on Europe, you know, Europe is one of our largest trading partners. They're a huge defense ally of the United States. And so a lot of the US efforts to raise concerns about alway have been targeted at Europe. And they're the response has been mixed last month. I actually spoke with the retiring embassador from the European Union here in the United States. You who said that he doesn't feel canal Europe is really ready for one uniform response to alway, okay? And you're seeing that play out, you know, countries like Poland and the Czech Republic. For instance, have signaled they'll be tougher on the company, but ongoing Merckel in interment said she's not inclined to ban company just because of the. Entry that they come from. There are two things that I don't think when should do namely fast, this constantly sensitive issues public. And Secondly, simply exclude just one participant just because he comes from one specific country per se, but I think we should not be naive about this, obviously and China they have very different laws than here. And we need to look at the Kathy evaluated Calveley. And then talk to on this there needs to be real proof of of wrongdoing and proof of security concerns. And then a debate about how to maybe mitigate those concerns. I would say the government in Great Britain. They're not ignoring what the US is saying they actually share some of the same concerns. I think many of these countries do, but we're there's a division is how to respond to those concerns. The US has been very strong about banning while way, keeping them out of five G networks Europe isn't ready to. Say that I think a lot of these countries, Germany and Great Britain in particular feel that there might be other solutions there might be other ways to while away in the five G game, but sort of try to ensure that they're not acting inappropriately and giving any sensitive information to the Chinese government gem team is needs to be Cetin that the Chinese state isn't getting access to data on Chinese products that are sold in Germany who took the Sukhothai from. He. Germany and the UK like at least formerly some of our closest allies things are getting a little sketchy. Now, why don't these countries share the United States concerns about this company? Some of them do share the concerns. You know, they it's not that. They don't see why as a threat that they think there's a different response to than the one the US has proposed sort of this outright ban. But you know, it can't be ignored. There's also this perception that the US war on Weiwei isn't really about national security that it's actually about the US preserving its economic technological leadership. That's I think part of the reason some countries are skeptical of the US argument for banning while way. And frankly, President Trump has fueled some of that perception with remarks that he's made I mentioned earlier the lawsuits that has brought against while way. President Trump has actually suggested that those charges could be dropped as part of its trade negotiations. With China that they're bargaining chip on the table and the Commerce Department imposed the stiff penalty Z T and at the urging of the Chinese President Trump actually reduced that penalty in a way that helped Z to help the Chinese government. There's some of the actions that the administration is taking I think raise questions about one how committed they are to this ban of. Wow way, and to you know, how pressing these national security concerns are suddenly they can become a bargaining chip in a trade talk. What does it really mean if the US maybe in this regard, at least take sort of a backseat in leadership if it if it sort of surrenders five G to China or as we've been seeing lately like loses this race. It certainly could be a competitive disadvantage for the US when it comes to creating new technique. That are based on five G, you know, when you have this competing technology. That's faster that has less latency. You're going to be able to do a lot more things that quite frankly, you're I probably can't even conceive of right now. You know? Yeah. Seven or eight years ago, we couldn't necessarily conceive of Uber technologically. Right. Some of these platforms have been enabled by the fact, that computing is much faster. And so if that innovation now comes from China Chinese companies would certainly have a leg up on US companies. This is perhaps a bit more nebulous of a topic within this debate. But there's a lot of discussion about values, you know, in sound sort of silly when we're talking about technology, but there are a lot of values that underpin technology things like the freedom of data transfer the freedom of expression online, those are values that the US holds, very dear. And that. It says any way or sort of built into the technology that creates if that technology is being created in China by China. There's potentially a whole different set of values that are baked into that technology. And so that I think is another concern that sort of underpins all of this debate around wall way in all of this concern about who controls the future with five G is it fair. I mean, you look at all the privacy issues. We've had in the United States with Facebook with Cambridge Analytica with any number of these scandals, apple Google. They're all there is it fair for the US and for Americans at large to look at while way in China as this sort of automatically incriminating force, or is there sort of more anti China. Sina phobia sentiment there to to be hashed out. There is definitely an anti-china sentiment involved in this debate. I don't think that can be ignored part of that is for good reason. You know, they're. There have been a lot of instances where hacking or other sort of privacy breaches have been linked to Chinese companies, even the Chinese government some of the business practices in China have long been very protectionist. In terms of trying to advance Chinese companies over US companies as opposed to creating more level playing field. And so, you know, the skepticism with which China viewed as an isn't baseless, but that now clouds kind of all of this debate. And I think we mentioned earlier the points that uncle Merckel made in Germany about not wanting to ban a company just because of the country that comes from part of I she said that there's a perception that that is part of the US motivation here to ban while way, just because it comes from China. Instead, the focus on allowing companies from all countries to compete as long as they meet certain security and privacy requirements seems to be the direction that jer. Is headed and and perhaps other folks are headed as well. Stephen overly. You writes, all about tech industries influence in Washington D C for politico.

You can explore within a couple of hours of San Francisco, Kimberly, vodka shares some of her favorite day trips like the Santa Cruz beach. Boardwalk, it's so essentially California to me with the wooden boardwalk, and the old wooden roller coaster, and Becky Lomax reminds us why America's national parks are always worth another visit it's amazing to see the wildlife to watch wild animals out doing their Wild Thing. Let's get out there in the hour ahead. It's travel with Rick steves. We're heading for the border. Today's travel with Rick steves the Canadian border, whether been political streams recently. It's still the longest peaceful national border in the world. Porter FOX on that the borders, actually, not always. So we see toy dente fi, especially when it runs through lakes and rivers that keep flowing and changing, yet a trip along the border illustrate the Westwood pull of both nations, and what it means to have a good neighbor quarter FOX joined us for a closer look at the Northland in just a bit. We'll also check back with Kimberly, the volume of a hundred things to do in San Francisco before you die. We'll consider some of the great day trips you can enjoy within easy reach of the city. Let's open today's travel with Rick steves, looking at some of the memorable experiences, you can enjoy in America's national parks, writer and photographer. Becky Lomax is the daughter of a national park ranger. She was raised in mount Ranier and Olympic national parks. And now she lives next glacier, national park. She's written a detailed guide to all fifty nine of the USA national parks published by moon, Becky, welcome back. Thank you. You've written a book. It's a seven hundred page guide book covering. The national parks, let's just take a blitz around the country and talked about some of the most unforgettable experiences that you could have. And I'm just going to I've just was paging through your book. I'll just mentioned them and you can describe them for us, and we can kind of put our travel dreams into action here. You talk about watching the ice calve and glacier bay. Correct. Calving called. Yes. These are Tidewater glaciers, glaciers, come down and touch the water. Okay. And then as the glaciers pushing ice down it breaks off. That's the calving. Okay. And then you get these icebergs floating out there, the way to go. See them is via a cruise boat, so you take a cruise take a crew, and then you don't wanna get too close because when I was they made a big point of it. Don't be stupid and get too close with your little boat, because of freakishly big piece of ice can break. Create a little tidal wave. Exactly. You could be in the cold water. Exactly. And you can also there's kayak tours go up to see him and so forth. So. Bay and glacier, bay national. How about the famous one going Yellowstone in watching faithful? That's absolutely wonderful. Now, the old faith is it still faithful? Yeah. It's about ninety minutes. I'm heading in this winter. It's the best time to go. Because in summer, you'll be watching old faithful erupt with, you know, so thousand other people, you gotta wait ninety minutes went, yes. In winter you go in and you might be one of twenty people watching it. Yeah. I just in Iceland, and there's a place called geyser, and it's where the word geyser came from a fun. The guys are there goes every three or four minutes. Okay. And I got a chance to kind of study it and you don't want to blink because if you've waited, you know, if you waited for what eighty nine minutes and you pause or you look around and then more faithful goes, you gotta wait another eighty nine minutes. Right. So I learned at geyser in Iceland, that the water kind of billows up. Yes, and venit blows you look at the wall. And if it starts to build up, it's ready to burp. Yes. There's a little pre-action. That's have you noticed that? Oh, yeah. Faithful. Yeah. And it usually gets the crowd all ramped up with what's happening. It's happening. Kind of backs off a little bit and blows all you hear these laws go all the way round in your book. You talk about wildflowers in death valley that just looks beautiful. When death valley gets the right moisture that's when this will happen. Because people say, a common misperception is desert is just a, a vast nothingness with no Lance fans so much life high much. And when you get those right conditions all the sudden it's instant both hops. Okay. So wildflowers what month is that March, using their yes? You talked also about the longest cave system in the world. Crawling through that at mammoth, cave mammoth cave. Yes. Would do what is tours is a cluster phobic if you are. Right. So, but that, that would be one of the highlights in your bass, I've long dreamt about rafting down the Grand Canyon. And you spend that it's over two hundred miles long a lot of people raft a little bit of it. And then they have a quick exit other people do the whole thing, but that takes a lot of time, usually twenty one days if you do the full trip without a motor on the so you've got the idea to take three weeks to raft the whole thing, or you can boat, the whole thing with a motor. What's the pros and cons of doing it the traditional way without a motor or just motoring through? I would think yet to debate I wanna really raft and just do part of it. If I've only got a week or do I want to do the whole thing quickly with a motor? What are you doing with the motor? Those boats are really big. You'll hit the Rapids differently than you will with your in a small Dory, or a small raft. If you're into the thrills, you'll get much more bang for your buck on. The smaller. Okay. You're more intimate with total the Rapids. Yes. Is it more demanding physically is more dangerous? Is it lesson Joyal that way for some people? If you're, if you're tender foot, you might find it easier to take the motorboat. Exactly, you can still drag your toes in the water and have. Yeah. On you'll still see the beautiful cliffs and everything. One of the most beautiful things. You talk about in your guidebook is the rainforest in the whole river in the Olympic national park. Tell us a little bit about that experience. You know, it's a work of art over there. It really is. If got these ancient trees, beautiful cedars Maples, and they're all just dripping with Maas and ferns all over, and it's not a tropical rainforest, because most reinforcer tropical, this is one of the only temperate rainforest cracked, it looks like someplace where trolls and things should be Lord of the rings like that. And they do a great job of teaching. When you go, there, interpretive in the word all of Maas is a great one, you can go take that interpretive wok. So if you're interested in trees, of course, you wanna see the big ones in California, where would you go for your big tree? Thrills in California. Big tree, thrills would be in the redwoods, and seeing those would be sequoia and kings and the biggest. Three of all is acquire. And that's a very easy visit for anybody. That's basically a road trip, isn't it. Each just have short walks back to the trees. This is travel with Rick steves. We're talking with Becky Lomax. Her book is USA national parks, complete guide to all fifty nine parks, and we're just lifting through some of her favorite parks summer for favorite experiences. And one that I think you can just feel your enthusiasm for perks. When you read this book, hiking, the narrows insight with that looked so cool. Well, you gotta I want to get your feet wet. Yeah, we're boots. Or do you just get all you were tennis shoes? Just get your feet can get a little cut up on the rocks. So you're better off. If you can actually rent, some serious boots, not serious boots, but they're the river shoes made for walking really? And so basically, you're walking right up the water and the cliffs are right here. So the water is below your knees, generally along. Well, yeah can be you can make quite. Long or you can just go with you can do a couple months. Short turnaround combat in the same thing in Sicily. And it was an amazing experience different. That would be hike the narrows inside in. It's like in those old movies if you didn't want the bed guys following you. You cannot have tracks because you walk up the river exactly narrow is are the cliffs because it sounds just like a deer could jump from one to the other. You know, in some places those cliffs, do narrow in quite a couple meters across. Yes. And then you talk and this is great for looking at pre Columbian civilizations. You tour, the ancient cliff dwellings and Mesa Verde, those are amazing, totally amazing. Don't appreciate what was going on before Columbus discovered America, not just a few generation way before the fact that they survived and built their livelihood 's in these cliff palaces in the sides of cliffs, and they go down and climb in there and build. So a lot of people under appreciate. Pre-columbian. Civil-. Physicians and some of these parks are nothing but nature, but others are celebration of, of history. What are some other examples in the parks, where you can really celebrate the civilizations that were here before the arrival of Europeans? You know, a lot of the parks are trying to do more with bringing that to light. But I mentioned glacier, bay aren't there, prehistoric petroglyphs in southwest. Yeah. In several of the park's, they're like canyon lands. And arches they've got petroglyphs in highlight for anybody is watching fireflies eight great smokies national park there. That's just a certain period of time you got to be there, usually in June, and you got to get permit and they're called synchronous firefly's because they all light up at the same time. Oh, sounds so much fun. This is traveled Rick steves, or talking with Becky Lomax, about USA national parks. And that's the name of her book. You talk about something called Pirka texture, the great lodges in these parks, and one of my favorite national park experiences was in the paradise lodge at. Rear? Yes. And this is understand a work project during the great depression. Are there big fireplaces and this old school, Woody charm, great base to hike from are there, other park, lodges that become part of the joy of the experience? Yeah. Yellowstone's old faithful in glacier parks. Many glacier, hotel built by the railroad instead of a c c project. Yosemite has some nice places. Yes. The Alani there, you might be wise. And I'm sure in your book, you cover accommodations wise to make reservations in advance if you wanna stay in something other than forgettable motel you need to make reservations a year to thirteen months in advance for most. Is that right? Yes. Wow. Plant aheads talk also about eating because I find food tastes better. When you're in a park. But when you're spam and crackers on top of a mountain is gourmet like absolutely your favorite eating experience. What do you look forward to when you're hiking, and enjoying nature? You know, my favorite when I'm out hiking, and so forth. It's jerky and it's nuts rather than sitting down and eating some bail sandwich. I just liked being able to pop stuff in my mouth all day long. So you pack with that in mind, I do. And then chocolate. The I I'm sort of an picnic aficionado and I like to augment the experience by creating a great set. So I'm getting a bluff or a peak, and then I crack open whatever I've got. That's where you just marvel it. I didn't know crackers spam good. Taste an amazing. And that's the beautiful thing about nature, you get immersed in nature. New relies different things are, are more important than you realize, and different things are less important than you realize. This is travel with Rick steves. We've been talking with Becky Lomax. Her book is USA national parks, becky's. So clearly parks connect us with nature. And let's say you could use a friend who never been out of the city, somebody who never marveled at that mossy carpeting of trees, we talked about in the whole river valley and the Olympic national park, what national park experience. Would you share with this person's never been out of the city? I would want them to see vialed life to take them to something like Yellowstone or theater Roosevelt national park or. Everglades? It's amazing to watch wild animals out doing their Wild Thing, as and where we are the visitor. Exactly that kilo mex-, thanks so much for inspiring us to enjoy America's best idea the national parks. Thank you. You can hear our earlier national parks interview with Becky Lomax in our radio archives at Rick, steves dot com slash radio. She opens up program number five sixty from April twenty nineteen her website is Becky Lomax dot com. There's that wasn't miles of wilderness in a whole lot more, you can explore along the border between Canada and the United States Puerto pox reveals what he found next on travel with Rick. Steves. What lies over the US border in Canada, has never seemed, very foreign to me. Hi Emmerick Rick, I grew up loving view of the peace arch. When we drive up from Seattle, visit relatives in ban. Coober it celebrates the longest and friendliest border in the world porter FOX grew up at the other end of the border in Maine. He's recently explored the entire length of it to see what it tells us about our two nations porter describes what he calls America's forgotten border in his book Northland porter. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me. It is kind of forgotten border. I mean, forgotten in the sense that we sort of take it for granted. And nowadays, it's getting a little more attention as many people in our nation. Here are interested in tightening up border security, just how long is this border and is it actually the longest in the world? It sure is a few include the border up, Alaska's while it's close to fifty five hundred miles just the longest international. Border in the world. You know, even the lower forty-eight border contains the longest straight border in the world along the forty ninth parallel takes off from lake of the woods, and Minnesota ends up in Bellingham, Washington it's more than twice as long as our southern border and yet our southern border seems to get all the headlines and not only that it gets all of the funding from congress, and has many times more border agents close to nineteen thousand at this point compared to the northern borders just over two thousand two guard a line, that's, you know, well more than twice as long I would think part of that is just the economic reality Canadians have about the fame per capita income as we do here in the United States. Whereas there's a tenfold difference in average wealth, per person in the United States compared to south of the border, it's true. And there's a there's a lot more illegal immigrants trying to cross the border in the south, however much. Most of the entries come through ports of entry checkpoints hidden in vehicles, and with false documents and whatnot. What a lot of miles to protect either way on the north and the south when you're looking at the border in the north, you've traveled the whole thing. Can you actually see it? I know in the east, it's mostly water. Is it a physical border? What do you see when you see the border? I mean I call it the forgotten border because you, it's very hard to find the border in the north. I traveled most of it. And in the east a lot of it by canoe. It's in very remote parts of Maine state, New York for Mont New Hampshire than shoots across the Great Lakes for the five Great Lakes. And you know, in Maine any way, you know, spent weeks on those rivers, and they're literally are no monuments. There's no line. There's no signs that say, hey, don't cross here. The really the only indication is that when you go through a town, there's Canadian flags flying on. One side and American flags flying on the other. But for most of it, it just looks like a backcountry. River country woods you wrote about in Montana. There's the cut, which is a visible line of deforestation. Does that track the border? I it sure does. And it's it goes across the border. There's parts where it crosses the forty fifth through Vermont New Hampshire, New York, therefore, any forested section of the border has a twenty foot wide cut on it with foot wide cut twenty foot wide. Yeah, we're back in the eighteen hundreds these, these poor timber guy sent to go through with axes and chop down trees for close to fifteen hundred miles of forested border with that just like neighbors stakeout where their fence goes, so there's no question was there physically a canary from Washington DC to say, we need a twenty foot cut. So we know where the border is. That's exactly what it was the international border commission was developed, and they said, well to market through the forest this. What we're gonna do way back when they didn't even know where the border went serving techniques were very different. That was marked several times incorrectly several times. And even now the border strays up to nine hundred feet north or south of where. Vine original pay now. It is interesting. You mentioned a lot of the border in the east is waterways. The technical border will jig Jag depending on where how deep the water is because I guess the understanding is the deepest point in the lake or the river will be the border. Yeah, the deep watermark is officially the border and that's shifting constantly and lakes and rivers. And so that's partly why they don't market, but not marking it. And having it move makes it really difficult for fishermen freighters on the Great Lakes. And, and just people going out to recreationally, canoeing camping, you, you really don't know where you are half the time you're out there. There's lots of times somebody don't they don't know if they're in Canada or the United States. Now, you mentioned the longest straight line in the world along the forty-ninth parallel. That is quite remarkable to think of that lung of stretch words, just somebody said, that's the deal. Okay. You're Canada where America talk about the anomalies around there. I know north of Seattle, you've got point Roberts with just a, a little tip of land. Connected with Canada. But it happens to protrude south of the forty-ninth parallel, right? Yeah. Absolutely. And, you know, the street borders, very problematic. They're not many around the world. That's partly, why this one is so unique. It's not really a great idea to just kind of snap a chalk line across the map and say, all right. Here's where this goes. It's split native American tribes and half it. Splits towns and half mountain ranges in half. It's very problematic, where it splits, a watershed and half and rivers start in Canada flow into the US and go back into Canada with farms, all around, they're drawing from that stream and water rights extremely complicated and still fought over today. So, you know it was done in a very stressful time. And James Polk was president and they were trying to figure out Oregon territory and how to split it up after jointly living there for round hundred years. They finally said, listen, we have to finish this border here Polk was going for fifty four four. Eighty or fight, you might regard the slogan, fifty four. We'll gosh that's up near Alaska. Those that's the border that the US is fighting for an and British Canada was happy to say, okay, subtle on the forty-ninth and simultaneously, the Mexican border, you know, the war down, there was kind of raging, and it was just too much as this thing done. And there's towns that are split by the border, you mentioned towns in Maine that are in Maine and part in Quebec. There's towns that are split by the border. There's backyards that are split. There's a pulp factor in not a cake main that split in half. There's there talked about the tavern where you during prohibition, you could go in from America and you could sit in the back of the room and drink in Canada. There were taverns built on the border during prohibition for that purpose. They were taverns built on the river on a barge and they would float the barge over to the American shore, pick up people they'd floated back over to the Canadian shore they'd party on night. And then they go back and drop them off. Hours of the morning, we're traveling along the four thousand mile border between the lower forty-eight and Canada right now. And traveled Rick steves, our guest travel, writer, porter FOX on several trips. Over three years. Porter made his way from Maine, all the way to Washington state following the border. His book is called Northland a four thousand mile journey along America's forgotten border, and it tells visit ventures and the people he met along the way it's interesting that you talk about the border was ignoring tribal land. It was signaling water basins, and so on, and that can cause untold problems. It's remarkable. We've managed as long as we have without real conflict because of that, and my feeling when I travel is when you reach a border, it feels like a kind of no man's land between two tribes. And we don't really have that with our border Dewey. Yeah. I mean it's interesting when you get real close to that northern border. I did find a no-man's-land I found a place where American developers and. Businesses and whatnot kind of didn't see as much opportunity there because they had to stop at the border at a certain point and candidates, a little bit different ninety percent of the Canadian population lives within a hundred miles of their southern border. Ten percent of the American population lives with one hundred miles of the northern border and most of that is in Detroit in Bellingham, and other border cities. So it's very on the American side. Anyway, it kind of is a no man's land. And what I found who's interesting is covering lot of travel, I've kind of gone against the grain and tried to find places that people did not go and see what that's like I find a really unique experience. And this whole journey was like that. It was forgotten towns and forgotten, you know, million acre wildernesses that really saw very few people, and in Maine. And Minnesota's boundary waters glacier, national park. It was just these huge swath. House of wilderness and kind of old world living that America really had forgotten and had been left very pristine. Well, let's take this journey porter because it sounds fascinating and give us an overview started in Maine and went to Washington state. How'd you do the journey, I didn't separate trips and I started in west quality had in Maine, the easternmost point of the continental US, I took a canoe and went up the Saint Croix river which really marks kind of the first couple hundred miles of the US Canada border spent the night on these back country. Campsites sometimes in Canada. Sometimes in Maine, sometimes I didn't know where there's also no cell service on the border, so your maps don't work quite as so if you are traveling along the border, it sort of is no no-man's-land between two different countries. Self-services it truly is you, you lose service with your American provider and sometimes the Canadian provider picks up. Sometimes it doesn't, but I had no. Maps, I had no GPS that I through Maine and I grew up in Maine. And man, I never saw back country like this. I mean it was truly pitch. Black Dard no light pollution at night. No sound no people. Well, now you're in a six canoe and it's Tober right? And you. Very nice time to get started on a long journey. Not only did it get cold. There's a cold snap. When I took off, and it was early mid October and they got their first frost of the year, and it was a canoe lakes. Yeah. I'm in a canoe and starting to ice up. And while it was it just made everything a little bit more more intense. But after that, canoe trip I came back home and wrote up that section of the journey in the next next trip. I did. I took I was a passenger on a seven hundred forty foot freighter that left from Montreal and follow the border across for the Great Lakes and left me off and Thunder Bay up in on tarot couple of hundred miles north of Duluth, Minnesota freighter those a bulk or yes, it was carrying iron ore out. They have for travelers that they rented. Well, what they have is they have rooms for the crew. They had an owner's suite that I luckily was assigned to and. And they take passengers. The lakes are interesting ocean freighters actually will rent rooms, and you can purchase pointy four day passage, Indonesia. If you want because of security on the lake since nine eleven it's been very tight. They don't really do that. But they do have rooms for family for friends for owners investors. I told them about my project said, hey, that sounds interesting. We'd love to offer you passage and this was through the wait call the Sweetwater sees the body of lakes and canals water from river from New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, into the Great Lakes. Exactly. And, and I was following the kind of adventures of Samuel de Champlain, who started near west quality head that's really where the first French outpost in the new world was. And then he went up the Saint Lawrence and found his way into the Great Lakes. Our guest on travel with Rick steves is porter fuck. He writes about his discoveries London friendliest border in the world in his book Northland. Four thousand mile journey along America's forgotten border. It's now out in paperback Puertas also, the editor of the online literary travel magazine called nowhere. His website is order, FOX dot com. What's it like to actually sale as sort of a trip through the Great Lakes? It is very slow. It's very long really feels like you're on an ocean. When you look out the bridge window, you can't see land anywhere. It's just all water all around you. I grew up sailing off the coast of Maine, I was used to that. But certainly not used to that in the middle of North America. It was truly stunning and it was really easy to see how Champlain would have thought that he had discovered the northwest passage to China that he was looking for it. Certainly looked like the shore of an ocean when you enter Lake Ontario, and the same for every other leg. But of course you know, at the edge of every lake he'd nailed down and tastes the water and realize. There was no salt in it. And it was watering TD Sweetwater sees so I can just see him going. Is it salty it? Oh, oh he's best. I'm sure. Okay. Well, you survived that. And then came the boundary waters between Minnesota's Northland's and on Tero and pretty close to Thunder Bay, the kind of beginning of the boundary waters starts of the pigeon river and goes up into northern Minnesota and a chain of lakes and rivers that goes right along the border all the way to lake of the woods and the beginning of the northern plains. I did the boundary waters canoe area, which is a million acre wilderness area, that was a keystone of the wilderness, act and the US and is one of the most pristine and, and most protected wildernesses in the US you can't take any kind of mechanized craft in there. You can't even take a paddle boat into these legs in rivers, you can't fly an airplane below three thousand feet over this region. It is extremely pristine lake country and deep deep for. Forest. And you wrote very interestingly euro, if you're not on the water, you're in the woods. Yeah, that's there's not much in between. And so we would paddle from one lake to the next, and then we would Portage put the canoe on our shoulders and mortgage into the next one, we had a terrific guide, who had been an Arctic explorer, and, and really knew the history of, of the area very well. And we just paddled along the border for as it was. It was really stunning. And that was kind of the end of the, the water section of the border, and of the first third of it, and from there, I hit the road to follow the across the northern plains. And as I was crossing them. I heard on the radio, but the standing rock protests and had read about the soon nation as this terrific Northland tribe for hundreds of years. And, and so the next section was really focused on that history. And, and this was the demonstrations against the Dakota Access pipeline. Right. He absolutely. Yeah. Near cannonball, North Dakota and some huge Indian reservations along the that border areas and they're yeah, many a dozen or split by the border from east to west when I was in Maine. I was on the past mcquarry reservation that split in half. I spoke to the Suez to the black feta spoke to the lumpy and. What are your memories from just travelling in the reservations? That's a lot of miles on the border. It's very destitute, and it's not very populated destitute, meaning very sad, economy's very poor, not spiritually, spiritually, incredibly rich, and powerful and very independent, and really hopeful the people that I spoke with and didn't like to be characterized as destitute at all said, well, this is, you know, this is kind of the reality of where we are. But they've really been delta. Bad hand by Washington D C for the last couple hundred years, literally having treaties and deals promised to them just pulled out from under their feet time. And again, in the same thing happened at standing rock, as far as the constitution goes, it was a legal. What happened in the oil companies, prevailed what I saw what my takeaway was was this incredible sense of hope and the way that they're spared just could not be defeated. They're not going to be knock. It's down by this terrible decision that the judge handed down they just kept going, and, and honestly splintered off to every corner of North America and are fighting this fight against the big oil companies other pipelines in the tar sands oil fields and coal ports out in the coast of Washington. And so that movement is really just begun which, you know, in the face of that defeated standing rock was actually a very inspiring moment, and again, diving into the history of it in and seeing this massive territory that the zoo nation, controlled really quite efficiently, and, well, it makes up today, one fifth of the continental United States and, and that was the territory that they you know at the time traded away for peace. That is very advanced tribe as were as were many tribes in North America, you know, major cities in the midwest and native American civilizations. But of course that doesn't make it. Into the history books. Fucks takes us into the prairies and mountains of the country, as he shadows, the forty nineth parallel, along US, two from Montana, to Washington state. That's just ahead on travel with Rick speed. Then we head south for some of the great day-trips, you can take within easy reach of San Francisco porter. Fox's our guest right now and travel with Steve porter. Details his adventures along the US Canadian border in his latest book Northland. He's also the editor of the online literary travel magazine called nowhere. His website is quarter, FOX dot com. So part of tickets down the final section of your journey the medicine line following US route two from Montana, all the way to Washington. Yeah. So the medicine line is, is the forty ninth parallel just shoot straight outs of the Pacific, and I drove that section and kind of wandered back and forth from the border down into the Great Plains. And then and to. Eventually through Idaho and eastern Washington and up into the cascades. And you know really that was one of my favorite parts of the trip. It was on the opposite side of the country from where I grew up, and to be able to recount, how these border surveyors, you know, spent years traipsing across the plains through the cascades, climbing mountains that had never been climbed by white man before, and marking them and reading about, again, the date of American history, there in the history of Oregon territory. And how you know, the British and Americans were living there in at the same time by agreement then, suddenly, that ends and even before them, how Russian America stretched down the coast from last good onto San Francisco too much of this territory. I mean it was just against so much history that really builds from the eastern side of the border straight across to the west every hundred miles you cross your cover. Dering twenty years in time, it did grow that way from east to west and so- traveling at that way. I got to sort of bring the story up to present time in those in that last thousand miles of the trip kind of takes you through history of the westward movement of the United States. It does. Yeah. It'd be good to do this trip from Maine to Washington rather than the other way because it's in chronological order. Exactly. And that's that's why I did the trip in that direction. And I was writing about the sixteen hundreds in the seventeen hundreds and, and Maine. And by the time I was out in Washington, I was writing about the twentieth century. And, and you finish at another Indian reservation, constant reminder that they were people here before that border was drawn and they're living on reservations, and let a cases now the lemme reservation what was the end to point of your for thousand mile journey like you know, it was very serendipitous when I was at standing rock the one night, there was a big presentation there. It was the lemme. Tribe, and that was the one night. They were there. They happen to be driving. Totem pole that they had carved on lung island. And they were driving it to a protest out east someone. And so I just happened to be there and I listen to them, and I was just in thrall d- with everything that they had to say and when I got out to Washington, and I kinda finish the trip I was heading down towards Seattle and I saw the sign for Lumley islands. And the lemme reservation guy got gotta go. And I went, and I just by chance picked up a hitchhiker that studied painting an art with one of the totem pole. It was just all very naturally. Good way to trip. And we got a cap up this interview, just very quickly. Where did you have a wildlife? Encounter. Where did you meet some interesting animal home? My gosh saw some bears running across the road. Northward main, I had probably on the canoe trip on the Saint Croix in Maine, where one point the middle of the night had autre run between my feet into the river, and they were beavers that were coming up a little Eddy, right next to the campsite, just watching me. They weren't afraid of me at all. It's like they'd never seen a person before. And then what kind of patriotism, did you find on either side? Did you notice flags on one side more than the other with the facilities tidier on one side than the other? How could you draw any conclusions about candidate in America in that regard? I son equal number of flags on both sides of the border in the closer to the border line. I got the, the more flags there were. Canadians are very proud of their side of the border and Americans are as well. They also get along very well and their businesses and families and church. Congregations are interlaced all the way across the northern border, and they always have been right from day, one, the northern border was never meant to be a hard border. It was never meant to have a wall or have, you know, military style checkpoints. There's been cooperation between these two countries since before these two countries even existed but can that free flow survive in a postman eleven world or has taken a hit, and does that hurt the communities? It's taken a big hit, and it has been inhibited, greatly to the tune of around thirty billion dollars a year for American and Canadian businesses and certainly for people and families and hospitals sitting on one side and their doctors live on the other side of the border. Our to our three hour delays at that border line that really are not catching many criminals early immigrants or smugglers, because they all go through the back country. It's really just slowing down and, and really hurting that kind of international relationship at tragedy. I mean as Europe involves fewer and fewer border formalities and people can connect and share and team up. And in the United States, we have to have this security after nine eleven and there's a reality, there's four thousand miles of potential community that now has you write about how in the old days there was over one hundred crossings that were unmanned at night. Absolutely. And, and I mean to this day Canada's our number two trading partner number one oil importer. I mean, it is an incredibly huge part of the US economy. And again, the people living on both sides of the border are incredibly connected, and the way that. Washington is shaping policy for this northern border. It is nothing more than pure ignorance, there unaware of what the local situation is there because they haven't studied it. They're mimicking what they do on the south and they're putting it into the north, and they're two completely different borders, that need completely different policies, maybe rather than catering to the fears of their constituents if they would take a couple of weeks and travel along that border, they'd have a better understanding. I think that's a great idea porter FOX. Thanks for sharing your experience in your book Northland four thousand mile journey along America's forgotten border happy travels. Thanks so much. You'll find links to Puerto FOX's Northland book and articles he's written about his adventures in the notes for this week show. It's at Rick, steves dot com slash radio. There's a series of guidebooks called one hundred things to do before you die covering, lots of different cities in the US, even smaller ones a few weeks ago. One of their local authors helped us explorer, San Francisco beyond the usual tourist haunts another thing, bay area locals like to do is to explore the beautiful scenery, and attractions, within easy reach of the city on a day-trip or weekend getaway Kimberly Levada returns to travel with Rick steves, look at some of the experiences, you can have within easy reach of San Francisco Kimberly, welcome back. Thank you for having me. I'm just going to list some day trips that we'd consider visiting from San Francisco and get your take on them when we're when we're looking to spice up our visit to that great city if you're in San Francisco, you always hear the word suss Alito. What about sausalito show is, is great because it's even less than a day trip you go there for coffee, you could go there for lunch. It's just about a fifteen minute sale across from the ferry building. I happen to live. Sauce, alito. Now I just moved from San Francisco. It's this lovely town with restaurants and galleries and cafes along the water and it's really wonderful, and you get a great view. So it's sort of trendy and it's got seafood restaurants. And it's got nice houseboats what four hundred houseboats and near saw sweeter. We've got the Muir woods, national monument. Tell us about that. They mere woods national monument is some of the oldest coastal redwoods he'll find and it's also a very easy trip, whether you're driving, or you could take the ferry to SaaS Alito, and then there is a bus that goes there if you are driving, you, you need to make a parking reservation. So they do limit the number of people that are in the park via this parking reservation, but completely worth it get there early before the tour buses arrive in it's it's impressive. These tall redwoods, and there are a few hiking trails through there, or you can just sit on a bench and take it all in understand this has been actually protected for more than one hundred years now in these triumphs redwoods and miles of trails through the forest through Kenyon. Yes. Quite beautiful nice. Now. That's to the north of San Francisco to the south on the coast. We have Half Moon bay. Yes. Half Moon bay my co author Jill Robinson actually lives in Half Moon bay. And she loves it down there. It's quaint little town, and there are kayak, companies and seafood. Restaurants, also, well known for its Mavericks, surf competition with a giant Ganic wave that role in during the winter, I believe, and yeah, and it's not very far from San Francisco, and it's also very easy day trip, or go down for lunch with you want to watch the surfers is that something that's all year long or just in certain seasons. I do believe people surf there all year long, but this particular competition Mavericks is a certain time of year and just for safety Albany say back a little bit. Never forget, I had a beautiful vacation, down there in a wonderful BNB. There's some great BNB's in Heff. Now for thinking about more seashore we've got point Reyes national seashore. That's north of San Francisco as well. People love to go out there for recreation. I mean, there are miles and miles of, it's a protected seashore, and miles and miles of trails to hike, and it's a great day, especially if you're active it's beautiful photographs and wanna sunny day. I think it's one of the places that can't be beat in the bay area. Konica lighthouse yeah. And the couple of small towns, you can stop in point Reyes station has a few little great places to stop for coffee or pack up your picnic. We always hear about this. Always hear about the Andrea's fault. You can actually see that point. Rhys. Oh can you. Gosh. That's, that's I don't. They didn't know that. Yeah. So there's less. Sort of a nature wonderland. They're definitely talk about Carmel by the sea. Well Carmel by this is going to be a little bit of a longer trip from San Francisco. But that's okay. And it's also a gorgeous drive. Of course, it's connected to Monterey BIA the famous seventeen mile drive and Pebble Beach. Everyone's heard of and Carmel by the sea is yes, charming little town. Fill of galleries and restaurants. Lots of hotels. Yeah. It's a great way to spend a day. And it's probably about two two and a half hour drive from San Francisco, these beach towns, the a lot of them have a colonial sorta heritage got the Carmo mission there, but then it's sort of a haunt of artists and surfers these days in karma, by the sales overs. Yes. Well, there's a lot of nature trails down there. And it does feel quite wild along the coast, especially as you start to head south towards Big Sur and whatnot. It does start to get pretty wild. We're exploring some of the fund day trips you can enjoy within easy reach of San Francisco with Kimberly. Levada. She's co author of one hundred things to do in San Francisco before you die Kimberly. Also received a gold medal from the society of American travel. Writers for her culinary travel book about the door dome region in France. It's called walnut wine and truffle growth for website is Kimberly, Lavoro dot com. Somebody's never been to San Francisco before they're tempted to go up to Napa Valley. It must be the number one destination. Tell us about nap Italian. Is it worth the trouble to go up there? And what are your tips to enjoy it? Absolutely. Recommend Napa Valley because it's not that far from the Golden Gate Bridge. It's about a forty five minute drive to the town of Napa, and something that I've seen having lived on an often San Francisco now since nineteen ninety the town of Napa itself used to be kind of drive through town, you sort of gas up and go, and then go, visit wineries. But Napa, the town is actually quite hopping now with restaurants in great hotels. They have the Napa Valley wine train, which if you don't feel like driving. They have various tours now that you can get on and off at different wineries. That's nice. So you can drink to your heart's content and frame. Yes. And then you have to eventually leave the train station next. But the but the train goes from winery to winery. Yeah, there are various tours. There's dinner tours. There's quick stop. It's three. It depends on what wineries you wanna stop at the higher higher priced wineries. For lack of a better description will cost more but it's a lovely experience. It's very orient-express, California style. And a lot of them serve a meal on there as well. So. Yeah. The valley line trains, doing a great job of mixing, it up allowing different. Whatever type of tour, you want you can experience and yeah, you don't have to drive and you know, where to go. Someone else's made those decisions for you know, I've done wine tasting and a lot of different areas, but have never done in Napa Valley. Just can you walk us through what, what's the process do you make a reservation? Does it cost money would kind of alternatives are there and what's it like to tour? Winery in Napa Valley. Those are all good questions, and it depends is the answer. So Napa Valley, a lot of the wineries are reservation only, but only because they wanna limit, you know, the amount of people, they want to be able to service you correctly, and they don't want to be overrun with people and not be able to help people. So most a lot of wineries will take reservations, some you can walk in, and there is often a tasting fee because they don't want people just come in and drink a bunch of wine and leave, but often that tasting fees is waived if you buy a bottle of wine, so it works out in everyone's favor. There are some great wineries. That you can go and spend a lovely day. I mean, alpha omega is one that comes to mind they have this gorgeous patio with fountains that you can just sit out there all day, if you want, which makes it very dangerous. Rick steves. We're talking with Kimberly lavar tone. She along with Joe Robinson code one hundred things to do in San Francisco before you die. And a lot of those things might be getting outta town in day-tripping Kimberly, when you go to the city by the bay, you might wanna spend some time on the bay, what are some options to get up there and enjoy San Francisco Bay. Oh, yes, you cannot come to San Francisco, not get out, so first of all, are, are fairies are great a lot of people do it anyway, because they wanna go to Alcatraz or SaaS Alito angel island. And so you're, you're already on the ferry, and it has great views of the skyline the Golden Gate Bridge over the red and white fleet and the blue and gold, fleet have highlight cruises like sunset, cruises, and cocktail cruises. There's the rocket boat ride. That's for the adrenaline thrill seekers who wanna go fast and speedboat there, even kayaks. I mean you. Can kayak on the bay. If you're, if you're strong and brave enough down by south beach, and AT and T park, there's a city kayak company. No you live in sausalito. And you mentioned. That's just a fifteen minute ferry ride away from very easy. And then when he gets us lead or there. Can you rent boats or on the bay from sausalito is that something you do from San Francisco? No, you could rent their kayak companies in SaaS Alito either as walks. Most people come and walk along the water. It's got a great view back to San Francisco, but share, you can get on kayaks. They're a lot of people rent bikes and bike over the bridge to, to SaaS Alito, if you can believe it. It's a long one, but it's fun. And it's you know, you see it all you rent the bike down in about fisherman's, wharf, and the need ride all the way over the bridge and down the hill into sausalito, and it's a great way to see a lot. Can you? Comeback by the very they used to do that way. But now they've made it easier these companies have parking and sausalito now and you leave your bike there and, and yeah, you can cab back. Uber back or take the ferry back. Very nice, now, a lot of people fly into Oakland and go straight into San Francisco. What would you do? Oakland. Is that worth aside trip from San Francisco? Oh, absolutely. And actually, I have an author of one hundred things to do in Oakland before you die, and she's covered it all she lives over there, but yeah, oaklands got a great booming restaurant. Z now I hear, they have a great Chinatown Bart is an easy ride over to Oakland from San Francisco. A lot of people go over and head to the Berkeley campus as well. Accessible by Bart? So it's a conomic Pollock sensible if you're like local writing on the Birch. That's cool. Yeah. And finally, what about the Senta cruise beach walk. So I think the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk is just something, it's so quintessentially California to me with the wooden boardwalk, and the old wooden roller coaster and arcade games. And they do summertime cinema on the sand and it's just a great, great retro. Feel to the place. A lot of surfing goes on down there, there's a surf museum down there, some great little hotels, retro motels that have been renovated, and it's a it's a great way to, to get a slice of old old, California. Sounds like a little bit like a B area, Venice Angeles. Yeah, that's a great way to describe it. Yeah. I like that. And you have your Santa Monica pier down there, same type of feel except, I think Santa Cruz is much older in a parade of people and unloving slices of life to yes, definitely. Yeah. It's quite nice down there. And the, the weather is often. A little bit nicer Francisco in the summer cruise beach.

Or whatever and we'll take some road beers and we're just looking like delinquent down to the lobby and then to the spa so we get to this ball and it's such a cool spot because they have like a a rain ceiling. Were just like rains. Like hot steamy water. But it's like not so steamy where you're like dying in like getting cooked like a chicken year like loving it so they have that like a pig ceiling rain ceiling. They have a plunge pool. Which i didn't know about before but a plunge pool is like a really almost ice cold pool and it's usually long and small his deep and small and you just kind of of jump and plunge into it to kind of wake up from your hot steam so you have the rainforest ceiling water you have the plunge pool. You have a beautiful. A huge half circle hot tub. Like a hugh hot tub is like a pool size kind of i think probably like thirty people can fit in it so you a big big big hot hot tub. And then they have the eucalyptus room. And i have never been to a spa like this before of you guys probably have but i never have. And it's not a sign. I mean essentially kind of. Is this on us. So it's like a really really box. It's a big old box again. Like thirty people can fit in it. And it's all glass and it's like imagine it just completely feel like hot boxed with eucalyptus like clouds. And you can't even really see your leg your hand when you stick out your hand like giving someone a high five. You can't really see your hand. That's how that's how foggy is in there. I almost had a panic attack walking. Because i could not breathe. Look like i thought like. I got sucked into a black hole in space somewhere like it was so hard. 'cause how hot in there too. It's hella hollick you're sweating. You're sweating almost more than in a sauna. Because it's just so hot and eucalyptus and steam everywhere like steam. Because i was wondering and they're like no trust me. It's going to cleanse you. It's going to cleanse everything and like shirley because they knew i was feeling sick but shirley enough like i was able to breathe and like it was getting kind of kind of like relaxing. Even those kind of hard efforts to be relaxed. 'cause you really cannot breathe like you. Your entire. lungs are filled with eucalyptus at the whole at the entire time. You're in there. But i kinda just start doing little stretches and i'm like oh my god this is like this is heaven like this is the luxurious life. I deserve so. I loved him and then we were in there for like ten minutes. Maybe and then after that we all went into the cold plunge pool and went okay. So they're encouraged me just to just jump in canon ball and tell you when you do that when you go from the hot steamy eucalyptus sauna room to the plunge pool. you like our rebirths. Like body countdown. to zero. Like my entire body went to a shock and everything shriveled and it was beautiful and it was great. It was great. So i loved that and then we went to the hot tub for little pin. Now these guys. I'm telling you. Like such degenerates mike okay. I'm trying to have a relaxed and peaceful time at this it because this is my first time i met the spa and like i'm trying to have a good time right so so these guys are like children. These are grown adult children. They are just like making the most inappropriate jokes slapping each other in the borlase. They're just saying a whole bunch of crazy things and even profanity like they are a nuisance to be around like. Who's looking at like we were crazy now. We were drunk. 'cause i had like a beer or two and so today like they are just like making. The craziest sounds weird voices like singing like this. Just like they splash in the in the plunge pool. Sodas respectfully like the people that were sitting in the benches just trying to relax. Like all got splash with cold water. Like eight is. I never thought that i would meet people at like crazier than means. Some of my friends like shane and allen. Suzy like all of them. I never thought that i would meet friends like crazier than my friends. People have crazier than my friends but did like i met my batch. I met my badge so at this on you guys behave like i felt like a mama. Everyone was looking at us mad crazy. I'm over here. Like trying to be cute and trying to find her sugar daddy and you guys are really like see blocking me so hard right now but also it's just so funny like the delinquency like to me because i'm also immature like watching it all go down like i was participating in the stupidity. Who's quite frankly entertained. Unfortunately and no one else thought it was when he was so so after that we go to the lap pool and we're dislike just play like little kids in the lap pool. People are trying to relax and get their workout in and the lap pool and we are splashing around like breaking rules. Like it is not okay. It's like teenagers like it's it's literally. Teenagers up is far worse. But it was honestly a good time but i mean at that moment. I kind of realized that i. I don't know if i can hang with these guys because they are only. We were only two beers in so then after that the jeweler he's like i want lobster. I want lobster right now. I want crab knuckles in my face. At this exact moment we're going to zuma's and then the other guy ritchie's like we're going to order ten. Lobsters we are ordering ten lobsters and nothing less. I'm like oh my god crystal. You have ten minutes to get ready. Put on a nice outfit. We're going to zuma's i'm like what zuma's because remember last time when i'm at the these crazy rich neighbors crazy. Rich neighbors They they were talking about how they go to. All these fancy dinner isn't that how would they wanted invite me and i fell asleep warm. I didn't i didn't go that night. I fell asleep. Well the nicest restaurant they mentioned was zuma's and they're like we're going to go to zuma's like uber now and like you need to get ready in ten minutes. Mind you they remember. They live across the door for me. So i'm like okay. That's fine so i quickly be my face really quickly. I put on like a semi cute outfit. I have no time to do my hair. My hair is still sloppy. Wet from the spawn and pull so chlorine over here. It is munching on my ish. And we get an uber and it is still pouring rain so at this time it is nine thirty and i have the word. Are we still drinking. I think we've had a shot at the apartment and we did take some road as we took some real beers and uber and then nine thirty we get there and eleven thirty is when i have the the reservation with my friends at the speakeasy with mandy and andy. So we get to zuma's hand like everyone knows them like they're walking us in the best seat in the house like bringing us or like we bring the beers in like the girl. One of the girls like no. You can't have the beers and he's like. I know this person like go. Talk to them. Like it's fine and these guys are still being nuisances. I mean zuma's is a like japanese kind of inspired american ish restaurant so they have like sushi into poor and stuff so they bring you paper. I mean wouldn't chopsticks and celebrity jeweler is doing something that has happened to mandate before and is terrifying and this needs to be stopped and there needs to be a petition to ban this from being allowed in restaurants and women should never have to endure this type of embarrassment when grown men on dates or just not even on a date because this was on a date just grown men in public any men in public getting those dang wouldn't chopsticks and putting them on their nose and pretending to be a dating walrus. I when i tell you. I was so embarrassed when i tell you that i didn't even want to eat the lobster and crab knuckles and sushi at zuma because these guys were embarrassing me to this other extent we were like three beers in and they were doing the walrus snows. Chopstick things and i was just like stop. Stop stop. that's embarrassing. And they thought it was so funny and they're like grown little kids so i can't be angry or mad at them and also there's paid for spotty at the spa and also we're getting chronicles knuckles zuma but when i'm telling you people in full ballgowns and rucking. Ysl and just on a regular thursday are staring at us and annoyed by our presence. I'm not saying that lightly. And i'm saying the holding restaurant and i'm saying that these guys are so loud. That is not that they want attention like they don't care they don't want they just having like a good old time like they're just trying but it is rare seeing I tried to like i. Don't wanna be rude to them. But i was trying to rip the things out of their noses but they were also trying to fight me about it. So i was just like oh my god okay. Whatever this is how we're going to be with us our. We're going to be other than that. I started the drinks came. They calmed down like as soon as the drinks and the food came. They were just all about the food but like those few minutes when they were doing that and laughing and thinking was honestly terrifying. And i was like. Oh my god. How have i been onto onto dinner. Situations with the whole chopstick walrus knows things so the first time that happened was when i was dating junk germer pep pugh the guy that i met in vegas. If you know you know you are an og. Because i was still during like my intern days. So pepple pew did that. And that's when i was like i'm never marrying you and then this guy did that. I was just i never. These are friends either homeys but it was just like i don't know if i ever wanted to go to dinner again with you guys nonetheless it it was worth it. The embarrassment was worth it because they really went all out for me. They were getting me the best drinks they were getting me the best shots they got us. Yeah was like four. Or five lobsters. We all got our own crab knuckle grilled crab guys the crab like it fell out of the shell and it was chopped up like it was chopped with the shell so unlike cubes but it was the legs and their crabs and then like downton is butter thing and then when you shake the shell the meat just entirely comes out. The lobster tasted like actual month icky alec real butter. Like i couldn't believe it. We had sushi. We had the It's not sashimi. Because she me is just the fish. But what's the one where it's rice and fish. We had that amazing like tuna yellow. Or whatever just all the best of the best Tempur asked for the hora. We got a lot like it was amazing like the food was really a one And like top top of the line drinks so neighbors came the heck through now. They wanted to take me to this other place afterwards to go get drinks and it was called like bar barbosa barbados bar. Something i forgot a one of the best places in new york again. 'cause they said according to them zuma was the best restaurant in new york so they want to take me to get the best drinks in new york but i already had a compromise with my friends that were just here so i was like you know. Why don't we all come like it's fine. We'll all go to this speak easy. It's like a a ice cream parlor in the front and the back. It's a secret it's a secret bar and they're like we don't want to go guys. Don't like us guys. Don't like hanging out with us and if it's going to be a guy friend and your his fiancee like they're not gonna wanna hang out with us. I was like it's going to be fine. Trust me just calm. Like i honestly was pushing the issue but i think but i like should have just listened to them so end up getting uber fries and we go there so it's a kind of uptown because this zuma restaurant is midtown and this speak easy is uptown and upper east side. It's called u. e. s. literally it's called you. Es the letters upper east side and we get there and my friend randy is already like crystal. They're not gonna let him in like these girls have been waiting for an hour to get in and they're super super strict a dress code and i already told them at a reservation list for three and so saying five now like they're not having a and i'm like we'll see we'll can try to figure it out and it's still storming. It's raining still so and i'm still. I'm still like coughing. Enough feeling not good So i get there and yeah the vibes weird vibes off like the bouncers like not being cool and our friends like the guys that i brought are trying to turn up and mandy like andy has a little bit of anxiety because he really just wants to get in and now i bought these extra people and this reservation was really hard to like the only reservation. He could get was for eleven thirty at night on friday so So it was kind of like anxiety and then like we're asking if the guys can come with us and then the bouncers like definitely say no and then the guy's do kinda wanna come and then like we're waiting there for twenty minutes and then the bouncer says. Oh you guys we have a dress code like you can't come in because celebrity jeweler had pants on my pants and like sneakers on and he was like do. These are gucci. Like how you're not gonna let me in like they're gucci sweatpants. And he's like sorry man like we can't have sweatpants. It doesn't matter what the brand is like. You can't come in and he was like. Are you kidding like boulevard. Like stupid like he kind of started. Like going from a guy. I'm like being disrespectful. And it made me feel very uncomfortable and made eddie filbert uncomfortable and mandy and it was just not the vibe and they kind of like storm out with how attitude and i was like good kind of because it's like there are rules there are rules are dress codes for things i shouldn't i shouldn't have tried to like group was altogether so that's something that i have to work on and learn like if someone says something like don't push the issue so like the vibe was kind of weird and then they left and i was like honestly like i'm happy that come with us. I'm sorry that i pushed them upon. You guys like that was totally my bad like they had just paid for a fancy dinner and his boss so i kind of like didn't want to leave him hanging but that actually that's no excuse. I should have just slept with three of us. And he's like no. I one of them come to but yeah. I knew that there was a dress code. Like all this stuff. And they're hello there. Hello strict here like it's fine. It's fine and i was like and also like that was rude. how they treated the host. So i don't feel bad that they are in the rain right now and have to find a way to get home like i'm fine with them and they're probably mad like their attitude was stink. Like i don't like that because sometimes you know people with a lot of money. Like i don't know just you know sometimes i i don't know that's not an excuse of p people with a lot of money. Sometimes because they have a lot of money they can do anything and get into anywhere. And that's just not how it is and there are rules for some places and stress codes for some places and suck suck. But you shouldn't be rude if someone tells you that there are rules. So i was happy to take off and ian mandy so we go this. They opened up the wall. And then we go into the bar and it is gorgeous like huge chandelier like beautiful artwork like the bars immaculate and they have all these crazy drinks like the the drink andy got. They brought it out in a cigar box and they keep a cigar box. They're few the drink that i got was if you saw my instagram story. It was like a gummy bear and like candy around day like cutic- free looking drained like sweet looking drink and then mandy guy. This drink that they like light on fire and it was just so so cool. So if you're ever trying to come to new york and you want to do like a really cute uppity like speak easy q. Like ig's situation look up e. u. s. no you. Es upper east side. But it's it's just the letter letter so you e. s. like. I said the reservations are hard to get so try to book like two weeks in advance or something totally worth going because a lot of people are commenting like. Oh my god. That's so cool like while you finally made it there. I've been wanting to go forever. So i'm really happy that we went and did that. And i i took care of it. So i didn't really check the prices but i think the drinks were like twenty to thirty dollars each so expect that expect that and then they have like some snacks but the snacks are like hotdogs in a blanket and like fries so it's not a place to eat so you don't really get food there just get drinks there go eat somewhere before and then go get drinks thereafter and the know that you might have to wait a little longer than reservation however great experience and then afterwards andy. Amanda wanted go times square because they haven't done that so we did that. And then yeah. I got home not too late. I think like two. Oh yeah that's pretty frequently. Oklahoma to three woke up at a for my ten o'clock shift on z one hundred. Because every other saturday every few saturdays. I have to do that so again. This is my saturday shift. The good news is already fish to finish all my weekend. Work on friday so saturday. I had to worry about the show so i did and saturday. Oh yeah yeah so. When my route when my neighbors left the bar the in like angry right with attitude i was already listening to them being like efat if ever i heard their whispers about me and i was also i was like i don't care like if that's what you're gonna act like gobi childish like continued to put the chopsticks up your no somewhere else so the next day like i felt bad. 'cause they took me there and did that and i was like i felt bad because i just wanted to make things right with them. They're my across the door. Neighbors there cool like even though they're kind of annoying sometimes and act like that but they did bail out on me. So i felt bad and i wanted to kind of make amends so i thought the store and i got a bottle of tequila and i texted him and i was like. Are you home. I have a surprise for you. And i was thinking if he responds. Then he's not mad at me. And i can go take him as president or whatever his surprise which was a bottle of alcohol and if he is mad. He's not going to respond and he's probably ignore me and he didn't respond so okay. Cool like i'm the keep the eli like the house. I'll see them in passing. And i'll try to make up for whenever so. That was fine so then saturday. I just chilled that night. I think i fell asleep. And i just hung out with his stefan and christian we went. Oh my god so. I stepped on cousin. Christian is in town. My little cousin is stem on is with me for a few months. Here in new york. City is twenty years old. His cousin came to visit this weekend. And i was really hungry like nine thirty at night so we woke up and we went to a burger place now it was actually a bar and they sold bar food there so i ordered a burger outside and i sat down. There was a bench next to us and it was a four older man and they asked us. Hey does it bother you if we smoke here and we were all like no go ahead do your thing. So they're smoking tobacco now. They tell us that the bouncer has been harassing them. And watch the bounce gonna come and start harassing them again. So shirley enough within like oh my g like the majority of this table was people of color so and christian all are somewhat white passing like some people. Tell me i'm not white passing what they can tell him. Electing but some people say that i am white passing. And i think that i could definitely be white passing especially like my pigment so i'm just like i see the situation here so immediately within those minutes. The bouncer comes and comes directly does and he's like are these men bothering you there. Smoke is bothering you. And we're like no and then the bouncer turns his back and starts talking to them and starts berating them and they are going at it. One guy stands up and puffs his chest. You know how it is like a guy like a guy all the other one. They're raising their voices. The balancers being disrespectful like actually trying to instigate it does seem like the bouncer is giving them a hard time. And then the table starts making fun of the balance because of bouncers from nigeria trying to claw back and like it just seems like they're all trying to fight each other and it was a hot mess and it was just ruining vibe and it was just like frustrating. Like if i was those men. I would be frustrated like like someone. Our table had their little vape pen and they were vaping and the bouncer wasn't talking to us like it was just it was just really annoying and i just. It really is frustrating. People of color have to constantly go through and go through the bouncer kind of left for a little bit. And i was just telling them i'm so sorry. Was it to go through that. And then they were just so frustrated but they were having a vibe so they don't want to leave and then the bouncer kept coming back and it was just like what is that one was saying is anywhere i go trouble follows me. He's like every time you every time you're around crystal. Something happens like people are always doing crazy stuff around you. We can never be allen piece but also it's like sure but i also don't get harassed like that most places that i go like it just sucked and it was not the vibe nonetheless. We ater burgers and we went home. So i called it early night because sunday was fourth of july and i was gonna go host at coney island with maxwell for one hundred dosier cats party at coney island so i called it a night woke up early on sunday morning and beat. My face wanted cute little fourth of july moment. I did some beautiful for the july shadow. You can go see right now. My instagram allah crystal roses. And it was just a good vibe. Like i look so cute. I had my little fourth of july. I didn't do too much by. I definitely was a theme and then we get to. We took the train. Meena savant and christian take the train ourselves to coney island's which was like an hour twenty minute train ride. Yeah it's pretty far. It's all the way down in queens under no brooklyn's all the way down to the tip of brooklyn and we get there and we immediately get to the vent and the security is kind of giving me attitude is just frigging annoying like he. He tried to like a little me by being like. Did you hear what i said. Listen listen and in point at like the temple of his head like china like show me off like a like a little kid. Who was frigging annoying. I was like yo. You don't have to do that okay. you don't have to do that. And he's like no. I'm just telling you like listen. I'm like i'm here. You weren't explaining things correctly. And he's an. I've been doing this for years. Ma'am okay okay. I i worked security at the federal level a ham like. I'm sure you do and you don't have to talk to me like that. You don't have to talk to me like a little girl. I'm here working just like you. Huge is just being rude and then the security took away took away my water bottle so i was able to hide that in a box of paraphernalia there so like she told me. Throw it away but i put it like where they were taking all like the weed stuff And i put the the the water bottle that had tequila in there and it was like expensive. Tequila had put in there. So because they told me i couldn't bring liquids inside or whatever and i was like okay cool like i'll put like throw it away and i'll just put it there and was okay. Yeah so i put it. They're they're they're giving me a hard time about a stem on and christian. What i'm like you is are like. They're not gonna pay to get in like where i'm working here like. It's just two extra people like you guys are already not paying us a lot to be here like no. I'm not they're not paying again. Talk to rename jacques. She'll eventually they did like the guard. The front was just not the vibe. Not the vibe I don't wanna talk too bad about it. But but the vents. I mean there was one there was one place to get food and the line was like an hour and a half to get food so i was just kind of starving there. I should have probably in before It was mad in oregon. I don't know. I kind of like. I feel bad for talking bad but i don't think i would ever work with that promoter again okay. I'll just say that. I don't think i'll ever worked with them again. But the crowd was having fun. The crowd is having fun and we decided to leave early. We leave early. Because i've seen those before perform a four. It wasn't going to be a full concert. And i wanted to go explore coney island a little bit so me maxwell his homeys and me and a seven christian we all start walking the pier and we got our lobster sandwiches on and they're already starting to pop fireworks and the lines for the rides. Were just so long like you. Can't get a wanna get on in those lines but coney island was cool like it was. I'm happy that i got to experience it. There's a lot. There's kind of a lot to do. I grew up. You guys know in the east bay. So i grew up going to the santa cruz. Beach boardwalk all right honey. So i'm gonna keep it one hundred zero. I'm gonna keep it real and crystals cave okay. The santa cruz beach boardwalk just completely shirts on coney island and i think if you've been to both then you would understand okay. I'm not trying to talk down on new york. I'm not trying to talk down brooklyn. I'm not trying to talk down on coney island. I think that i was just raised with the best boardwalk. Probably one of the best in the world so going from that to coney island I was just. I've just been spoiled. So on coney island you're on the boardwalk right and you know how santa cruz like you have like funnel cakes on this side of the other side of the boardwalk. You have the games and then you have more funnel cakes on this side and the games on this side like both of the boardwalk sides are live on coney island one side the the side away from the ocean is live and the other side is open to watch to see the ocean. So that's cool. There's not really stands or anything. And people put their chairs and tents there so it's like people are sitting and watching and playing music on the side of the boardwalk on the boardwalk and then the other side is really good food and then like inner. Inner is the rides so at the boardwalk in santa cruz you have rides on both sides and food in bars on both sides and on coney island it's just one side of the pier and more of the stuff is in the streets so on the santa cruz beach boardwalk in the streets. It's the parking lot and sets pretty much shea. And maybe some restaurants right but coney island a lot of it bleeds into the streets. So that's pretty cool that's different. It's more of like a county fair vibe. And then some rides are on the boardwalk and some a lot of the rides are are in the streets. And i just feel like there's more colors and lights at the santa cruz beach where it walked like. The roller coasters are just taller and higher. Like we have the giant dipper right. They have the cyclone. I think are joined dippers better it's more boardwalk. Feel so you're gonna see on my blog. Because i've logged it. Also you're gonna be able to see it all in the blog when the log comes out this week but it was just a different vibe but nonetheless like i had a great time. The food was great. They had funnel cakes. They had this. They had the pilot eros like they had a lot of stuff like it was. It was cool. It was fun. They had like random dance parties. That's the thing at the boardwalk. It's really really touristy where there's not too many locals there. It's more touristy here at coney island like it's all new yorkers at coney island like it's a lot of new yorkers at coney island which is great so people are having dance parties and there's like a lot of the same culture and the all like there's people just posted up with their big speakers at every speaker is a different vibe. Like you have the puerto rican speaker over here kind of thing. You have like the old. The old is oldies. You have like someone playing like what's happening now over here so it's like it's a good vibe like it's different it's fun it's like it was fun like it was a good time. I was having the dance dance. Parties are taking shots. I was eating all the food so it was fun is is different is definitely different. I would say that maybe the boardwalk is more like family and like i was island is a little more turn up but yet unless it was great so we left ellis island around nine an island. I'm sorry coney island around nine to go see if we can catch fireworks at times square. We missed. We missed him. Because i think they were actually like eight and nine but that was fine because on the train ride back. We'd like to see so many fireworks and then maxwell and his friends went home. And then nina seven christian went to my apartment and we were able to see tons of fireworks that were going off in jersey from the balcony and from the living room so it was a great a chill fourth of july. So that was yeah. That was yesterday. And i didn't go out drink during anything like i just tried to lay low and then yesterday was monday. And so the first we had it off me and maxwell headed off so the we woke up and we went to the crabby shack. Which is i've talked about before in crystals nightcap in the bay we in san leandro we have crabby crabby and that is my favorite goto bagged. Crabs spot like way better than boiling crab way better than any other crab. They've had seven sons raise. Crab shack is really good too. But i like crabby and san leandro now out here. They have crabby shack so me. That seven christian took the train to brooklyn to go to crabby shack and crabby. Shaq was cool. It was small it it was good. I don't think i will make a trip to go back like it wasn't so good that i'll go back but it did. Were how to do it do how to do so. We had crab and then afterwards at seven and christian wanted to go see the space jam. Pop up in midtown. But i wanted to go to the department stores. Because i'm moving next week to my permanent harm. It and i want to go look at the ross's of they don't have ross out here but tj maxx marshalls container source. Because i want to see what. I can snag from there so i hit up sixth avenue and nineteenth street. And that's where you have tj maxx bed bath and beyond a marshalls Burlington co factory. You have west Even though that's my price range we're not gonna shop there but you can take a look. He's you know I went to bed bath and beyond their. It was closed. They have container store so my mom coming next week so i went to just go see what they had to see what the vibe is to see. How much stuff is to see. If it's better for me to buy it in person and take a cab home with like see us and massage and couches and stuff or if i should just buy online so i went to all these places and essentially what i found out. Is that the prices for marshalls. Tj maxx four. Like nightstands and bar. Stools and chairs for living rooms are all relatively. The same price is if i bought stuff online so i don't know yet what i'm gonna do if i find some cute stuff than i am going to snag it up. I'm excited to come with my mom. Because she is great. I finding all these things mom. She's gonna make sure. My pace looks like a beautiful palace. I know i know she is so i did that. For a few hours. And then. After that i told you that max wanted to work to just kind of like plan out the month and plan out like ideas and stuff that we have for our show and for online so max came over around four thirty a week. We hung out. I like the communal spot that my my apartment has right now and this is the funny thing is. That's why. I said that. Max is a great co worker for me because he pushes me to do more and go above and beyond because regular crystal would never be thinking about work on a day off. But i'm happy that we did that because we got a lot done and we had a. We have a lot of ideas that we're trying to come out and have everybody be a part of in to make our show better and make our online presence better so we came up with really great ideas and we were all chilling and all that and it was a good time and that was just for like maybe an hour or two and then by six o'clock. Seven o'clock He left and the municipal on had a cute little dinner at the restaurant. That my new apartment and my new apartment. There's a restaurant downstairs. And i've been wanting to go for so long and it is a bomb. They're going to take all my money and it was so good they have those build your own cheeseburgers where you can get like crispy. Onions avocado beacon ship. Holy to everything lake. It was over hard egg like so eight all that and then around nine o'clock i called it a night so i fell asleep at nine o'clock and then at two in the morning i hear s- like like georgia the jungle screams and this is this morning at two in the morning and i'm like oh my god what's going on so i go and open my balcony and it's my neighbors my crazies liberty. Neighbors crazy rich neighbors. They are screaming at the top of their lungs on their balcony. Just being obnoxious. And i wave and i'm like good morning guys like crystal come over. Come over come over. And i'm like okay. Cool like this is a good time for me to make my men's so i grabbed that the bottle and i go over there and i'm like here's for you and he's like this surprise you were going to bring and i was like yeah. Do you still hate me. And he's like Like he's kind of still but her about the situation but he's trying to get over it so my cool could that's the vibe. So they have these girls over they have some guys over there taking shots or like going hard on a regular on a monday night big deal. We're all partying. I just drink like they give me a beer. And i'm trying to babysit the beer because it's too am i have to work today and i'm not gonna like crazy today and i need to recoup from the week because i'm still. I'm a lot better than i was thursday and friday. But i'm going to have a heavy week this week and then this weekend. I'm going hard again. So it's like i knew the i. Nocco stay up heavily and party. So i just start hanging out with them. And i start hugging to my neighbor and he's like the celebrity jeweler and he's like so you left us like i can't believe you left us and i was like. Oh my god relic. I'm so sorry that happened. Like i wish i didn't have a dress code like i don't know i don't know what to do. I had to stay with my friends. Like i told you. I had to say france. he's like that host. He was he was like. How did they let me with my pants. Like i was wearing gucci. Sweatpants like my like he. He was like you know my alpha was probably worth more than his car like. He was kind of like going off that way and i was just like i know but you don't how places are like out here. I'm just like. I'm so sorry. I was like you were mad. And he was like yeah like. We don't wanna talk to you again. Like we were saying like a few like her like f- alike. We're aren't gonna hang out with her again and i was like. Oh my gosh. Do like come on like it wasn't like like you. I didn't even want to go. I should have pushed the issue. And they're like yeah like he was like yeah. We didn't even want to go like we told you. We should've gone. I was like. I'm so sorry like please. Forgive me like. I know like okay okay. We're overall where shots shots shots. I was like dang like okay show so thank goodness like i was able to squish that beef with them like good thing like he got over it somewhat quickly like. I'm happy that. I'm building this like friendship relationship with them. Because as i've said these guys are womanisers like they get with so many girls they walk down the street and just grabbing the girls that are walking. Take him to their apartment and the girls end up stealing stuff. It's like awful rich so yeah. They told me that girls have stolen things from them before. And like when. I was even there like a girl went into his room. And then the one of the guys like a yo like go check on that like see what's happened over there but i'm happy that i'm kind of like becoming friends with them and i know that i need so like dictate like the kind of friendship that i want to have with them and they are a fun time but also who like their kind of sometimes embarrassing but also they can give you experiences that i wouldn't have otherwise like the scoffing thing and like the nice restaurants out here and they really are down to to like show me around new york and the fact that i work here at z. Like i think that also was a factor to them. They they like being around someone with like my radio status. I suppose so. It's kind of cool. And i'm going to still be friends with them. You know some ways or whatever. So i'm happy that i made man's with them and then at three o'clock i think like three o'clock i was like yeah. I gotta go to sleep. And i cleaned up for him and then i went to sleep. Oh i try to go to sleep didn't happen. I was up until six in the morning. But yeah and then this morning i went and had brunch with someone. Who's very very special to me. She is she works for. Abc seven and the bay area. And she's someone who gave me a really huge opportunity with abc seven. When i was over there a lot of you guys don't know that i was an affiliate for them so i would actually pitch a lot of content to them odd record content for them. The ran a few of my stories. I wasn't the face of it. But i was like the back and producer things producer. Kind of thing for them and she put me on this awesome panel with a whole bunch of boss latino women in abc in the whole west region and they just had to sit down with me to chat about me and my career my life and you know when you see people that you want to be like or people in the fields that you admire and they really take the time to listen to you and help you over they can. It's so heartwarming. And it makes me even that much more want to give back to and help out the next generation as well so these ladies are bosses and one of them is in town for funsies and she told me she was in town and she was on a have an early breakfast cafe moment with me so this morning we went for the first time we hung out because we met during the pandemic online so we never officially got to me in person but today was the first time we got to meet in person and she's kind of taken the rule for me as a friend slash mentor and i told her some big ideas and plans that i want to do and she also wants to move here like she also wants to live in new york and hopefully it's going to happen for her within the next few years and she's just amazing and is really in touch with the community and outreach and like give back like she does a lot with the for the community and community outreach so i love being around her because her mind is always how can we help our community and our people are latinas are latinos are people of color like how can we help with our work and it's just so inspirational to be around people like that because for my job because i have my own show my own podcast like my own things it could be really like i could feel really like self absorbed at times so it's always important to give back because that's that is so fulfilling like die is really the world is about. It's like making sure that we all elevate making sure that we all are being held in doing things together and especially in a world like media. Sometimes it can feel like mimi. I mean this whole segment crystal cave is about me so being around her like really does put a perspective for me that even though i'm doing my own thing out here in new york i should definitely be working on ways to help the community here and make sure that every a lot of the things that they do have that in mind especially if what i'm sharing is it gonna be beneficial for someone like are the stories that we pick like what is the point of them. What is the meaning. How's it going emotionally. Help someone or help someone think differently and better so i just loved having our little pal this morning and after that i had a sales meeting and so they're trying to pitch me for this really great endorsement with the very well known company out here in the in the country so we had a sales meeting on how i'm going to help close that deal like make that deal possible so like i'm on. He'll work meetings and sales meetings and doing all these great things so back to work this week so i think it's the craziest things that happened this week. Other things. oh boys. So hoboken bay the guy that i've known on snapchat for five years and finally met him out here and he introduced me to all of his friends and wants to hang out with me and stuff. I'm he was with his friends this weekend before the july. He didn't like make really too much to see me and also. I was super busy so i didn't really want. Try the issue to see him. Because i knew i needed to relax this weekend and not be out a lot so it was find that we didn't hang out this weekend. We were texting and talking constantly so that was cool flow king flow king. Guys should definitely go back to last week's episode because fo kings story is hilarious. Flow king is super super busy and there is a health ticker tape parade coming up tomorrow morning. I'm going to go with my friend that i had brunch this morning with my mentor. So her and i are going to go to the ticker tape. Healthcare workers prayed. And i think flu kings going to be there but i honestly have been so busy entire this weekend that i did not have time to text flow king so i haven't really been on that and i think he's been so tired and working so hard to that we he doesn't double text me which i love. Don't forget pressure me. She hasn't had. He has not asked to hang out or anything because he's so busy with all with the prayed that this is this week so i don't know what the we're just kind of like friendly tapping in whenever we have time so last time. He texted me. Saturday and i responded this morning to him while i was on the bus to work so today. Today's a few days while talking to each other. I think that's fine. He's busy i'm busy. We're both adults. It's totally cool. I met these guys elevator. Two guys one name is mohan name is show and they are. They have a car they have a car. Which is huge out here. New york so if you live in a city and you have a car in the city then you you. You don't want you have to do out here so they invited me to a party yesterday before me. And maxwell linked up to work. And i met them in the elevator and i told them maybe i can link up with you guys in an hour or two but if you guys need to go to the party you just go without me. It's fine and we can link up another time so they were like okay cool they were like. Hey krystal rather leave. Can you com- like no. And they're like well. We live your vibe. So let's hang out this coming week or the next week. So i haven't been able to text them back yet but they are fine af and they are tall af and they live in the building that i'm in now and they drive so i'm definitely texting back today and being like yo sorry can make yesterday but Amazing yes let's link so i'm totally making friends and it's just get. There's just so many people that i can't keep up like i cannot keep up but that's the good news now with coming up was coming up later. Gentlemen this week. This friday. After the show i am flying to viva las vegas like you just heard. Now you know over winter break. I was in vegas because my anthea menino indianap- live out their juvenile. Lean stebbins dad and step mom so they live out there and it's my nina's birthday. It's a big birthday for her. So she's stone a big party at the marriott. She's an everyone's flying in everybody's flying in from all of our family like family from san. Jose is flying in my cousin hector's and all them my mozzarella flying in her side of the famous l. Flying in my field for my higuera finance so this is going to be a fat party at the marriott. That's so a fly in friday night. Get there saturday morning. I believe yes. I think so at the time change and then saturday relax and the big parties at night game were getting belligerent. For that and then the next day we got the cabana at the pool. For the whole day it's gonna be one hundred fourteen degrees so we're gonna bouncing from the cabana to the casino from the casino to the restaurant restaurants cabana. We are just going to be relaxing and then monday is my flight back home. I don't know if it's monday morning. No no sunday night as my flight back home. And i'm getting played because it is a ten hour situation because i have four hour. Layaway so layover layaway. Tj maxx layaway. Over here are all seven. No i am doing a layover for four hours. Because if. I didn't do the layaway before hours. My fight would have been six hundred dollars and Crystal doesn't have that six hundred dollars one way check yet from my heart. Hopefully these endorsements run through. I will but as of as of now we are taking spirit. We are still in that spirit. Budget ladies gentlemen. We are still in that. Spirit budget yes. We are the compromise to living in new york is that i found a dang apartment. I have at least right now in my email for this department. I have not signed a lease yet because they haven't added the window guards yet. Because he's gonna come through. My cat frappuccino. Probably coming through and properties a very inquisitive cat. I okay. so. I'm on the twenty-something floor i think thirty something slower and probably postal head al then after like a week or so. He's going to get even more curious. And he jump out and land on all fours. And i'm gonna have to go find him with his little chip that he has so crappy. The queen crappy. She needs her window guards. So i have not signed alesia because i don't have the window guards but we got it ladies. We got an apartment in new york city. And i'll let me tell you about this apartment. okay. I looked at like i think six to ten apartments and i found the room. That was the one. However someone snagged right from under me. And i found like three that were the one someone from under me and they had a same building another room on a higher floor. That open kitchen. The other kitchen was a closed kitchen but had a lot more windows. But this one has less windows and it's open kitchen and it's not higher floor so i'm like okay. Fine whatever i guess. It's not the corner room. But i can settle for this one. It's on a high floor. It's one bedroom. I know you guys. I'm living the life. I have a one bedroom in manhattan crazy. It's a one bedroom. It's has a kitchen. It has a dishwasher that i'm going to use as a drying rack because mommy mommy unreasonable for no dishwasher always wanted to just wash my apartment but he says we don't work that way so we are going to use the dishwasher as a drying rack. It has the washer and dryer on the floor. So it's not in the unit is on the floor. I guess it's a compromise. It has full amenities. Okay so i have a doorman i have packages. I have an indoor pool tools. Finally khushi crystal has over indoor pool with like a sky windows so indoor pool with like windows all over it and take on a high floor crystal has never gonna use guys crystal new york city. Luxury crystal has a gym that she's gonna use crystal a yoga studio. Because you nabi doing that. Vanessa flow g. Mommy g underscore on instagram. You'd better go at her and get her on demand classes so i have a yoga studio dance studios cycle studio cycle classes. Christina's tennis courts. You guys we've never played tennis in our entire life. But she got tennis courts. And you know dang. Well i'm gonna use my visor. Miniskirt up in that crystal has indoor basketball court. Never gonna use never gonna use our. I got that crystal has a rooftop access crystal has like a whole like living center like for a communal living center for everybody couches. Tv's there's a bar in their in their crystal has a putt putt area to go a little golfing little greenery. Putt putt situation trees in the front. A restaurant downstairs guys crystal is luxury living now. This isn't as luxury as apartment. I have now But the apartment. That i have now like i could afford to live there if i wanna live in a studio and that just ain't life for me right now like. I don't wanna live in the studio in the bay. I lived in a converted garage. It was a one bedroom so it was fine. I don't wanna live in a studio. I have a cat. i'm going to have family and friends over all the time like like i already have day weekend so i want them to have their own space living room while they're staying with me or in my room and i can sleep on the pull out in the living room so i definitely wanted to one bedroom. What else So the amenities in their apartment. That i met now like i said they're like three hundred four hundred a month. Five hundred if you want like the pull on the weekends and amenities over here for me are waived their waived for the whole year. So i don't have to pay for the amenities. I don't have to pay a pet fi. Because i have a cat. My cat is free. So i don't have to pay for water. I don't have to be for heat and gas which means i'm taking unlimited bubble baths because i forgot deserve it because we're still mad expensive. I do have pay for electric. So let's say see. And i do have to pay for wireless but other than that you guys. I'm so excited. Like i'm living that manhattan lifestyle. Six win last you that you know sex and city girl like that is me so me and i am beyond excited beyond juiced and yes. Oh i already have pretty much. I just need to finish in italy's and in the deposit and vitamin is over. Now i buy a bed frame from key. I bought the one with storage on the bottom. So i don't have to buy address or that one was kind of pricey but my mom said if i if i do that if i buy because the rooms in new are still kind of small. I don't want to take up extra room with a whole dresser for my bedroom. So i just bought by kiel ones with the four drawers and i can shove stuff under there. So i have that That's what the bedroom The mattress my mom ordered on costco for me And all going to be arriving. When i get there so so's perfect and then i ordered someone to build the ikya bed for like an extra hundred or something Because i don't have the tools and stuff for that and my mom didn't want to do it and she's like tell them that i can do it. 'cause building those big off his hella hard so i did so did that my mom and dad or sponsoring me and they bought my couch. They bought my couch. Like oh queens queens like thank you like. I'm so blessed. I know that i'm spoiled. I know that not everyone has parents that can just ball out on a couch for them. My parents bought me a really nice couch like leather one from costco. And it's a pull out the out to a queen and it you don't have to take the going to this off like the united states pillows off to make acquaintances all goes out together. So i'm so thankful. They bought that vermes software about a couch. It's arriving the day there. I move in and So yes so now. I'm just looking for the other little stuff. And i'm gonna probably spend a few grand on the. Tv's i wanna tv in the living room and in the in my room. Mount those my friend khalil. I've talked about him before. He works for net gear. So he's sending me a router. So i don't have to pay for and i think like the rest of the stuff i'm just gonna go like i'm gonna let my mom handle. I'm giving my mom my credit card when she's here she's going to buy everything for me decorate all. I think the colors are going to be. We decided cream whites and goals. Those are the base colors and the accent colors are going to be fuchsia and turquoise so those are going to be like maybe the throw pillows like a cover here there Some picture frames and little like decorations. So those are going to be like accent colors and yeah. I think that's what we're gonna do and it's all happening like i'm so excited like this is going to be a crazy next two weeks then. Finally moving moving moving and all good stuff so as crazy as this week was next week is going to be even crazier. Because i'm finally going to see my family. And i've been asked if i miss my family. Yes i was at burlington yesterday. I mentioned that. I heard a little girl or boy. Scream out lucky and i heard and i thought for a second and i jolted because i thought it was alex my nephew the little duck screaming duckie and that's him and is nicknamed to each other. So duckie duckie and that got me. That really really got me. I was crying in the isle of burlington. 'cause i just felt like damn it's going to be a long time that i just get to pick them up any time. I want to hang out them and booth him and him just bothering me screaming duckie all the time so i really got to me. I got really sad that the day thinking of leaving. 'cause seven has been here since i moved and when long leaves this weekend. It's just going to be coming home from work but yourselves like with any went to decide what we're going to eat or anyone to go with me to protect me from like events and stuff so seven not being here is going to be tough but the good news is that my mom is going to be here. So she's going to be able to be that buffer for me and my mom. She booked a one way from vegas to to new york so whenever she wants to leave she can leave. So there's no time frame on that. So i'm not sure about that but then i think what's keeping me going is just knowing that like every so often i have people visiting and i have something to look forward to so like since i moved here. I had vegas look forward to so vegas coming up after vegas my mom's coming so she's going to be here with me. After that. my dad the baby are gonna come after that. I know more and more friends and family are gonna come. So that's the good news. Is that every month or every week. I'm going to have someone coming in to give me excitement about not missing home so it's okay like it's okay to feel sad. Sometimes it's okay to live in a city of ten million people in phila- alone. Sometimes it's going to happen. These are real feelings. And i'm gonna get through it and learn through it and keep working through it and keep going going and going and going and going because i'm still not over the fact that i live here like even today like i. I was going to in the morning like i can't believe there live here but i feel like people are going to get annoyed me saying that over and over again but it's like super super true so there you go you guys.

"Help people from northern California. Commits hey, bro. Hella proud of you, dude, like your vibes. So. Overly Pasi by everyone else. Olivia is one of the original team members who diligently hoped open our downtown Sanders location in the Pittsburgh market through so much, love and dedication for this place. She has then become the coordinator of this location. If you see her behind the bars, she may not be safe much. But on this episode. We get to hear her story. We talk about growing up the small town of cleaner and all its ups and downs life as a student, and when that part of our life is over how she got. And this place means, sir. We love her the people over and Pinal you will. I have a few questions for you, as, you know, first one is what is your favorite outfit to wear. Probably the same one that I wear every single day, which is jeans and t shirt. Every single day. Sick Banti always heck ya I like worrying banned t shirts every day and seeing when people notice. So far, they haven't it's every day. Libya. Do the same thing every day. Yeah. I've known you for four months. My or I mean, I have so many questions I was gonna say my last question is now over thank you. Thanks for talking to me. Nice to meet you who someone you would like really like to meet, oh, Wayne Coyne, who's at he's the lead singer of the flaming lips. Have you never heard of him? Yes. I do. I do. Sorry. I thought Bruce Wayne. Actually love that man. I like that man. Batman, also love to meet that man. No, no. I'm good without that. Okay. Mostly went going. And if you did get a chance to meet him, but just like a tattoo on my arm. Is it? Well, no. I actually that was I didn't say that. Right. I have your she me on my arm because one because that's tattoo on my arm. It's from his album Yoshimi battles the pink robots big fan and. That's probably the first thing. I would say is or actually I wouldn't say anything. I would just be like. Ooh. Important my arm and an homebody. I did send him an Instagram DM. I'll about the techy. My arm. I love you so much. That's your shimmy. You'd never responded or even side. I don't think. It's fair. I mean who knows now you're on this platform? So when it happens. Happens. Fleas send me a letter. Letter send you some coffee. So alluvia you been here for like almost two years. Yes. And. Mostly you were at or you are at Abbott, right? Yes. I knew kind of or I mean, you did help start up that place. And you're there since day one. Yeah. Yeah. I do does there before it opened. I helped open it in a way kind of even though that definitely was not my job. Yeah. I just decided it was my job says sick look at me. I'm the captain now. Yeah. This is this is my ship. Hello. Lou. Boy. But before we get to the present. Where did you grow up? I grew up in kind of a smallish town called Yucaipa, California. It's about five hours north issue of here school place. What was your favorite thing about growing up in Yuka? I mean. It's kinda like the stuff that you hate about. It is what you end up loving about it, and it's just like small township. I just love that like. There's certain things that. I don't know like when people talk about hanging out at the mall growing up. I'm like, we didn't have them all. What you talk. We had a gas station. Yeah. I feel like I had like more more of like a in touch kind of feeling of what it was like when my parents were growing up where you always hear of like when I was a kid, my parents just. Let me out of the house at nine AM, and I wasn't allowed to come back til five. I said to go do whatever. And that's kind of work nine to five when I was. Sleep by creating planning months. So I don't know small towns shit like walking around. Yeah. Like that's a big part of being in small town, or you know, going to the park anytime. Doing kind of weird scummy things, you know, there is one thing. Retelling me. I think it was called ice blocking is blocking. I've never been ice case. Oh, this is what is blocking? Is you go to Safeway and you buy a block of ice love. Safeway. Are you kidding? You also need to bring a towel. You don't need to buy the towel. Okay. Unless you don't tell their fair. Then you go to golf course. Ideally. And and get up to one of the highest slopes on the golf course. And put the towel top is block and slide down the hill. And at first it's pretty slow because you have to wait for the ice to get a little melty. But once you go down a few times, cool, really fast. Very dangerous. Helmets for this. What the heck me either? No, yeah. Don't win. Omits other Yuchai is kind of fun because the cops know that kids like to go do stupid shit at the golf course. And so they'll drive around all the time. So you felt kinda cool doing ice blocking? Because you have to listen to make sure the sprinklers don't turn on. And then you also have to watch to make sure the cops aren't coming and. Wow. Dangerous. My god. I didn't do that. Until I was probably like junior senior in high school though, I was kinda late to the game. When it came to doing fun things. Working nine to five. And then so you grew up in you pretty much your whole life. I was born in Idaho. Oh, I didn't know that. I don't falls dope. Do. And then I moved to you cry when I was like one. So okay. Yeah. I don't. EVT's many. But I don't remember being a baby there. Yeah. I remember you remember being a baby or you really want another for you being. People. Like, I remember when I was born, no. So you. U P group, and you and then where did you go after that Santa Cruz too? That's where we are right now. There's a pin location to where we are in the league below. Yeah. I grew up in you cry stayed there until I graduated high school moved to Santa Cruz in. That's where I've been. Did you go to school in Santa Cruz? You already know the answer. I know the answer to this. But everyone listening I went to UC Santa Cruz until doco. Yes. And what did you study UC Santa Cruz? I win in for physics. But I switched to pure mathematics. Yeah. That was that. When about like physics and Math Made you so inclined to like steady it. In high school. I was super into science and math and stuff. And I didn't actually know that you could study straight up math. And so I thought oh, well, I like math all study physics. What was that? Oh. Okay. See? So and also math classes are pretty small because nobody wants to study math versus I know the I I hear so it physics classes are very large because you have to if you want to do any sort of like engineering or anything like that you have to take physics series. So I was jumping into college. I was I mean people say Santa Cruz is small, but you is really small. And so I was like losing my mind like stressed out. Didn't know anybody except for the hundreds of people from Yucai who live here for some reason. We're a virus? I was pretty overwhelmed when I went to UCSE, and I didn't realize it until like my senior year, but I was not prepared to join into classes of four hundred people. Verse in Weil, also like having like roommates have never had roommates before. And I didn't particularly get along with my roommates. So it was like pretty hard all the time. So physics. I just didn't feel very supported because there's too many students and there's only one professor. So if you wanted to get off sours, you gotta wait in line. You have to know what your question is. Which is like, yeah. I guess, but if you don't know what the fuck you're doing. It's kinda hard to know. What question to ask? You know? Like, I I don't know. That's why here, I don't know. Anything do physics? I know. Versus I also made the decision to instead of taking the very large calculus nineteen b class. I took the smaller honors calc twenty. So I I could have jumped ahead and count. But I decided to go fall behind in starting honors class. So instead of being in a class of like three hundred people, and I think it was online or something like that. I was. In a class of twenty five people with like the best professor of ever had in my whole life and people from that class. Like, I was in math classes, all the way until I graduated with them. So it just worked out better. I realize it I wanted to be in math and not in physics 'cause I had homeys and not have friends visiting out. Suits too many questions in physics labs. I'm just going to say I'm going to put it out there. I don't like lamb don't pick too. And that is like pretty important if you're going to be physics major doing loves, but they're so tedious so long and the writing for it is like so precise. I hated it on the other hand writing answers to math questions is also very long precise more. I know. I know I I know what I like I like what I know. So there you go. That's the story what or who. Not necessarily like at UCSE, but currently or in the past or when you're UCSE like what or who has been hoops. Wouldn't host whom st- excuse me. Dance proper grammar. This is my. Who or what? Has been an influence show moment or person for you. Influential moment person moment person slash or percent. I mean. Influential person definitely that math professor was talking about. He I took. You know to calculus classes with him. Then I took two more vector calculus classes with him. And I took. What's it called complex now? Also with him. So I had them for five quarters. A lot of time to spend with one person. Like, we were homeys. His office was sick. It was like all couches and Charles awards on the wall. So it wasn't like a normal professors officers sit carpet on the ground. He has all of these poly hee-joo that he makes that are up on the walls names, Richard Mitchell. True listening. Richard Mitchell's non sent you an Email. Anyways. He. He shapes. He just kind of shaped my future. And he definitely wasn't even like. Supportive of me being a math student. He really wanted me to stick it out with physics. But I was like, no. I can't do it. And then he left. The end of my junior year, and I became really good friends with the TA's at UCSE in the mass department. And if you don't know where the mass department is it's on the top and the bottom of mckenry library. So you either on the very top of this building where the professors get to be or you're in the basement of the. The students get to be so sick. And so I spent like. A lot of time in the basement of the library hanging out with the TA's. I'm still I still talk to one of them a lot. So they are all pretty helpful to super cool people to trying to think of other like if people everybody's pretty influential? Yeah. Honestly, like, my family Hella influential. It depends on like what like different aspects of your life in different times and for different reasons. And I know that sounds very simple, and yeah, I just for me. It's like I. Try really hard to get as much as I can out of people. And I don't mean that sound like weird or bad. But not like your milking them out of like, you're like. Using them in a sense. I try to learn from people all the time. Yeah. And so like. I don't know. I feel like I could list like pretty much every person that I've interacted with that. I like people that I don't like are not to. The few people that I actually can't stand are not influential. I think there's a lot of good things that a lot of different people bring to the table. And really, I mean, I don't know. I went to school route because that's what we were just talking about. But in terms of life, plenty of people. Yeah. Yes. That's always really nice. I feel like often I always had the content that everyone had like some sort of influential person in that prison be and their parents or like a mentor of some sorts a lot of people. I've come to realize don't really have that. And they kind of just like fend for themselves or like through experiences. That's why like instead of saying personalities now say moment because sometimes there's just certain experiences or moments in your life that influence you to become the person you are now, and I feel like I understood that, but I never really grasped the idea until I started talking to more people. Yeah. It's crazy. How? That's happened. Yeah. You just gotta keep your eyes open. You know? A. I feel like throughout my life. I've there's been different people who are like a mentor. So like when I was a kid. It was definitely like my spent a lot of time hanging out with my grandma, and so she was super influential. And she taught me how to be like a strong woman because my family there. I don't know if they really understand. The how important it is to be strong. And I've always like I was always raised. Allowed to like. Say what I felt s- or I'm very stubborn. Extremely stubborn. And so I don't know like I didn't realize how important that was until I hung out with people who stay quiet for other people. And so she's fluential in highschool at teachers who are super parents, of course. Yeah. Especially now that I'm an adult. I'm better friends with my parents. I think when I was a kid say with my brother, I'm like just starting to get to know him too. I feel that it's weird to kind of say out loud or think of it like this is person you grew up with they're related to you. But it be like that sometimes seriously. Yeah, I yeah. It's it's kind of weird honestly, bro. Love you. Yeah. And then. Can't cloud people. Obviously to speaking of how did your coffee journey start. Well. In yukai. There's a whole inmates. You. And you kinda there is one coffee shop, it's called black oak coffee. It's actually really really really good coffee roasters like one ton of wards like. Pretty solid specialty coffee places just in like the smallest dinkiest town in the world. I went there a lot when I was in high school to study with my friends or skip class or whatever and. I drink a lot of like CHAI. The black oak is probably the best try in the world. It's a controversial opinion trying to go try. They also have a drink. Hold elder flower is tea that is amazing seriously. It's the list it's the last. And. United give hot chocolates and tries and all that crap. And then my good friend, Michael Miller who left black to go work at verve in Santa Cruz. He started like slipping espressos into my hot chocolates and give me mocha's and stuff like that. And so like, I, oh, that's guy. Cows ocoee. Hello. So that's kind of how I got started. And then that's how I learned about. Verve because okay, setting the stage. I'm I don't know if I can't stress this enough small town person. I went to also to add something to this. I would to private Catholic school for nine years before I went into high school high school is like big Sosa, and it's a small high school and Catholic schools big. But it's a tiny Catholic school. So I just thought about this faraway land Santa Cruz, you know, and I'd always watch those ads on TV that was like Santa Cruz beach boardwalk in the wom-, California sun. And I was like where is this is this real? They have. On the ocean. That. The physics. So anyways, Michael Miller was like I'm gonna go work at this magical coffee shop called verve. I was like that's sick. Yeah. So you know, I went there. Then I started going in round the my sophomore year. I decided I needed a job because I like working a lot. And so I applied to tons of places like Trudeau's movie theater. And verve is like the only place that got back to me and take that true. Joe's. For. And I started working at the downtown location in the night, moved to forty I where I learned about what can cloud is. Because forty I is very close to the Portola. Cafe Chris came in a lot no idea. Who was? Yeah. Jared came in once that was kinda crazy. So you knew these two dudes while you're at birth or like because in berbie knew who they were just I kind of knew the connect kind of see the connections because like I was trained by KENDALL who is Tanner's girlfriend and McKenna's Tanner's sister. And. I tried to become friends with someone like the old verve people. So I would hear these stories about the two companies and stuff like that. And. And I started listening to the podcast and then. Where was like the inclination that you wanted to move from verb to cat cloud like what gravitate towards this place. I forgot to mention also Christian was my assistant manager pretty I o dope. She trained me on bar on her last day before she came over here. I know. So what was your question? My question was what was the transition from like verb to Ken cloud? Like like, what did you wanna just expand your horizons and coffee or just like what about this place? You know, made you wanna work here. I could just tell that people were happy, and I wasn't honestly and. It wasn't so much about like the the PTO or the benefits or anything like that. Even though that was a cool like bragging point, I guess, but. I was getting really deep in the coffee industry and had really cool. Like, I thought it was cool. But I hated all of the kind of narcissism and ego that came with it. And I start listening to the podcast and realized that I actually agreed with a lot of the stuff that that Christner your saying on it, and I thought it would be cool to see what that's about. So I came in on the first day soft open. I don't know it just I mean everybody who comes here. So the same thing it's like when you walk in the doors, you just feel like you're welcome kind of like olive garden, or whatever. When you're here, you're definitely family. And who knows maybe we're maybe we're at all garden. We got maybe bread. We should by all. You all have garden in Santa Cruz, the new one if you're listening. I'm a big fan. Like any of the employee's? Mr. olive this garden, any of you, please. I love you guys so much. We hyphenated are last name. That's what we got. I feel like I'm kind of scattered, but I feel like I also said the ads are totally. Yeah. I just want to see what was up, and I also knew that. I have a hard time like fibbing people and so working here. It's like I could be stoked about something. And it'll be stoked about selling people. And it's like I want to share it with people not because I want their money. I want to share it with. Like coffee. It's really really really good. And our art is made like by artisan town. You know, and yeah, you know, so and. What would you say like? Is a big reason you might have already talked on this. But like what has kept you here for so long because you again, you could've worked anywhere. Yeah. But what about this place makes it like I like being here? I don't really see myself anywhere else. It's going to be kind of sad. Well. I felt really out of place up until I started working cotton cloud in terms of like losing out of my house, my mom, moved out of our childhood house. So that side like felt like I was homeless one of my only one of the only people that I went to college with where I did not have a home where I grew up. And so and then my living situations up until now have all been kinda shit and made me feel like super excluded. My roommate's hate me. For some reason, or there's always something going on that just made me feel like our wasn't allowed to have a home, and like cat and cloud became the first place in Santa Cruz that I have family. In a home. Kind of telling me this. You know, how I get about stuff? Like like, it's. I really love all the people who work here and. Avid square, especially like making that cafe I feel like it's my little my little baby feel like it's my house, and I always like seeing Evers working, and I I may be like, quiet or whatever. But I love the regulars. I love the people who were cured. Yeah. So it's sanctuary for me. Yeah. Oh, that's so beautiful. Are you know? My next question. Because you are coordinator of the dams allocation ace, and the I know any anyone in leadership or everyone leadership and coordinated I know you guys work super hard. So. What something you personally do to like reconnect with yourself or to not feel because it's all worke care and really love. But that doesn't mean it's always easy or it's like tiring. So what's something you like to do reconnect with yourself? Hobbies hobbies or just things that you need to do to create your own space. So you're able to come back with like. Energy or something? Yeah. Well, I don't know. I. Really value, my alone time. And so the things that I do to keep myself from going crazy is a really like being alone. I really like hiking with somebody else, not alone. I'm going to get. I love exercise. I like exercise. Let's go to. I all the time. Can cross twenty twenty. No. But yeah, there's little things that I like to do to keep myself from going crazy. So if it's like. Yeah. I used to being alone. All the time would keep me from going crazy, but actually talking to people really helps to. Re reconnecting with myself, or I guess not ruling. Yeah. Like recharging three charging. Yeah. I I was confused because I was like, well, I'm always kinda myself. Right. So having like an identity crisis. Yeah. I guess a corrector would be like recharging because there's a lot of energy effort that gets put into that. Yeah. Yeah. And honestly, I've been trying to come up with. Ways to recharge. You know, I know you came like relate to this. But like we were students for a very long time. And then you're just not man, you know, and then in in right when I finished school. I went to Europe for two months came back worked all summer and just like just like recently. I'm starting to like realize that I have a lot of free time now, and I do not know what to do with it. Oh, yeah. You know, I've watched six seasons of scrubs in about six weeks. What are the highlights own? My god. I. So many. So I'm trying to figure out what my hobbies are in like find things that don't make me wanna like pull my eyes out because like I used to draw a lot and I used to play Bandra a lot and I'd like to get back to those things. But I also have such hardcore -iety about trying to do anything that. I usually just like get crippled and go on watched scrubs more. Not a bad thing to resort to. You know, I've I've yet to watch to show, of course. But you know, you have to really recommend. I think this is also another thing we kind of talked about in the past. It's a really weird period to be in. Because again it goes from. It's a weird sense of you have so much time. And at the same time, you feel like you don't have so much time. Right. And your time is consumed with other priorities or responsibilities. Yeah. We're in school. It was like I have this deadline in this, dude. And it's like cool, I completed it and I move onto the next thing in after being a student that shifts into like a different sense where there aren't necessarily deadlines all the time. But. It's like, you're just constantly planning. Or like every day is. Also a deadline or something. I don't know. And also you have to make the deadlines you come up with what to do how to do it when you're going to do it. Yeah. You're going to do. Yeah. Versus at school. You're like, oh, you want me to do that? Okay. Yeah. I guess I will. And I think one of the things I had a really hard time with after finishing school was I felt like I had checked off all the all the boxes that they wanted you to check out. And then you would at the enemy get your diploma. And then walk across the stage and be like it did it. In. That's literally all it felt like towards the end. Yeah. And I was like, okay. Cool. Like, what do I do next? I don't know. But you can't be here anymore. You gotta go do something us. I'm like, I literally don't know what to do. I by the time I was done with school. I was dying to leave. So like I remember like. And I also didn't I had? Three months, but in between me finishing my last class and going to graduation because I finished a quarter early. And so I felt like super kind of disconnected from the whole thing. I was kind of already doing my own thing a little bit. So there's a little bit easier like that. And I was already living on my own to which changes things like I'd see my parents, really they came for the thing, and then they left. Yeah. But. Yeah. It's it's a weird time in summer was like loot summer doing some things again in the they full-time in now. I'm like, okay. I know how to work fulltime. What's next, exactly? It's like that's all your program to know, and to do until you're out of the loop and out of like that cycle of being a student. But also working in a cafe gives you little goals or towards o Todo, which is nice. Yeah. A little bit. There's a little bit more measurable 's being in leadership. You have a lot less measurable 's. At least that's the way I felt it's just like you have to come up with some idea there isn't like a list of. Although you just you just have to figure it out and do it or wait until somebody tells you to do something and then go for it. It's not as structured. Yeah. Yeah. When you're in leadership, you kind of have to. I guess one of one of a good thing about me. But also in also good thing about me is that I'm like super. Authentic. I don't like faking it with people in. I'm pretty bad at it. I can't like I don't I don't do. Very good lying. I'm not. I just don't so. Being in leadership has been kind of cult for me because sometimes you have to pay put on a face like if you're having a really crappy day soft put on a face and be cool because you're driving the ship driving the boat. It's about. So. I know that a lot of people kind of. They're kind of savior from it. I guess is they have an on the floor character and off before character for me. I feel like I'm pretty much the same. Nothing. It's been hard sometimes. Well, yeah. Yeah. You know? I don't have all the there's. Yeah. And I think, you know, along with what you were saying about being super real is like also if I feel like from knowing you and talking to you it's like if you don't have an answer for something. You're not going to get like a bullshit answer either. Yeah. A lot of times. It's I don't know. I'm figuring it out or I'm like, I don't know. And I'm figuring it out. And then you ask me about it. I still don't know the answer. It's frustrating. I'm like so K was saying, I don't know something. Yeah. What's what's something? From like your own experience or. Any sort of insight. You could give to not only with our leadership, but like leadership anywhere, not just in coffee. What's something you could tell tell people to help them when they feel like they need to reconnect themselves with themselves and their leadership. What I would say is that. Something that I kind of had to come to terms with was for any regular barista on the floor. We always say it's okay to make mistakes you're allowed to make mistakes. And when you're in leadership, you how also have to allow yourself to make mistakes because everybody thinks that you're pro because you're in that position. But you know, when I started I realized I'm not a pro being a leader. I just started. And so I'm going to make mistakes, and I'm going to it just sometimes it feels like the stage a little higher because when you make mistake as barista. It's like, oh, I made that drink wrong sorry or dropped. You're toast, my bad. I'll make anyone you know. It's like they're all pretty fixable. But when you're in leadership, it's like, oh, I gave that person feedback in a way that was not helpful in. Now, it's weird. And I have to go talk to them about it more, you know. And so you have to just like being a lot of really uncomfortable situations or like. You have to deal with people more personally. And I think. If you have a good team, which I do I would hope that they understand where you're coming from. And they know that like I'm trying my best just as much as they are. Yeah. So anybody going into leadership? It's okay to make mistakes. Just apologize. I think in the moment feels super detrimental because it's so present and its quote, unquote, stings so much. Yeah. And I think it goes to show how much you care to. Yeah. So you know, just gotta give it time. Yeah. It's like you just feel like everything's a lot more like high stakes because it's like you have to upkeep some sort of like respect. Yeah team. Yeah. And if you make any mistakes, you're gonna lose it. And then they won't listen to ever. And I just reminds me of like when I used to be a tutor or teacher, and if the class didn't like me, I couldn't teach them anything. And but it was also like they were shitty. Little kids. So. Is working not with like school kids anymore, and they'll be more forgiving. It's I feel like it goes it has to be like reciprocal. And it's like I see someone working so hard for something bigger than themselves. Like, I feel then compelled also to to like help this person who's trying to make these dreams and goals happen in like I want to help them achieve those things to even that has nothing to do with me. It's just a respectable thing to do. And I think that's why we have a great team. And it's because a lot of people have that same tally. Yeah. We all worked together. I don't know what it would be like to have a team where it wasn't like so structured like this, and there is such a mutual respect for everybody. And. Yeah. So I don't know how it is working to bad place. You should leave K L awhile. L also brain the, but here, you know, there's a lot of there's a lot of room to to grow and to fail. Yeah. And took grow from failing. Snaps snaps, but I. How am I trying to word this without it sounding super cheesy? Gosh, don't you freaking dare. I'm just. You know, how much I care and respect you so much not only as just in the short time that I've been working at downtown with you where is just been super admirable. And I like we didn't really know each other. I have been working year, and we work with each other. There's some people here that I've never worked. And it's just like. It's been really cool to like learn for me. And also just see how you work and seeing like, I would there's so many things I learned about you that I. Applied to how I would want to continue working. Well, that makes me happy. That's really all. I'm trying to. You know, I have a lot of fun. And I know when it's time to buckle down and work, and it's just. I mean, I think you're doing a great job shutt-. I have one final question for you. And this is one where it's not how typically ask it. But we in the past. I've talked about music. What? Do you look for in music that where you make it or what does music have to have? Where you're where you're like super intrigued by it. Because you can't really pinpoint what specific album, but what something about that. Because when we talked about this your big music, married. So what about it like water? What's the checklist? I. Think that I mean, it's all about a feeling and I also like. I mean in the moment when you find something new you're not like thinking, why do I like this? You know, you just like it. But a lot of the music that I listen to I realized that I like it because I feel like they're bringing something new to the table in an authentic way. Yeah. Like. I mean, there's so many bands that that do their things super well. Like queens of the stone age is amazing Willie Nelson is amazing. Lim lips. They do their things super well. And even if some of their music is shitty. It's still really high quality shit. Like like when you listen to it. You can just sound that it's not like. Thin. You know, what they got what they got it. I don't know what it is. What how how do you look for new new music? Honestly, I. I used to spend like a lot of my nights just reading this is back in the torrent days. My girl my stuff before like Spotify existed. I would read like pitchfork articles and just like certain articles on the web and. Torrent as many as I could find and just start listening to all of them. So that's how I used to listen to music, you don't find that much. Good music that way. Yeah. A lot of the music that I found is through. Talking to people like. If I think somebody is cool, and they tell me some a music a music that they like if they told me like if I think somebody's called they told me album or song that they like our will look it up. I usually write it down somewhere. So it's just like I've accrued a lot of bands over the years because I started just collecting music from people around me since I was like. I don't I wanna say like twelve or ten or something shit. Yeah. Because I used to listen to Becca lot. Somebody told me to listen to back or the lead singer of if I went to my school. So I went so I listen to air fi. And I just really liked to pick. Just listen to what people around me were talking about. And so I've got a little bit of a library. Now. There's so many things that are so good. When we also talked about music, you really don't have just one designated like John Ray. So to speak. Yeah. It's like a Luger. Yeah. Like, I used to be one of those kids who was like, I love everything except rap and country, but you know. Like what people were. But now it really like wrapping country too. So. A hard time. Because like if you look at a playlist that I've made it goes all over the place, just because. I think that there's a lot of really good things to pick out from any John raw every genre has amazing music. I don't think that. I don't think any John was characterized by having bad or good music, either sept- reggae. I'm. So. I don't know. There's just a lot of things that sound really good. It. It doesn't have to do with. I think I think a lot of the stuff I listened to probably alternative rock, but a lot of it's also just really weird one my favorite bands of all time is Wayne. Oh my God. They're like the pit of me of a weird band. Yeah. Don't you? At all. I have you're like here's this song by them. Here's another song. Here's another. It's the same people the same. They don't make any sense. I'm also, I whatever I like make friends. I'm like, hey, listen to wean but don't listen to me. Have some really terrible songs. And the reason why I love weed so much is because they don't follow any rules at all. They're just good at playing music, and they don't get shit about anything. They're like, I imagine like some of the songs that they have that are absolute terrible. Like, there's a harmonica solo in a song called drifter in the dark that makes your ears wanna bleed seriously. And I know that they made that just being like if people have to listen to this. The world's greatest prank. Right. It's just like their ranking us. I love it so much or they'll have like a song, that's like rock and roll. But then you get to the solo, and it's a Spanish guitar solo. And you're like why is this here? Did you this? And then they also like wrote music for SpongeBob, which is also to the loop de loop impulsive long. That's them. I didn't ocean man at the end of this movie. That's them. Yeah. I've heard that. But I do want to say, thank you know. We'll think you again for taking the time to meet with me today. And I think. A lot of people could also agree with me that I think you're you're pretty all right? He'd outta here. We're gonna bring now that we've like complimented crap out of break this place down burn into the ground.

This is the Adam Corolla show Adams gas today, legendary comedy writer, Larry Charles with Gina grant on news ball, Brian on south of acts plus review of us in Rafer Baldy would at RJ bell calls in for the final four of banks bracket madness. And now we spent a lot of time on the phone today with this mom consoling her on her flustered bracket. Adam Corolla EAC get it on ticket on shows. But to get on Mendy get it on man. Thanks for tuning in. Thanks for sharing this pod. That's what we rely on day. Gina grad. Also goes by shitty. Sometimes he does I have much get into excited. See Larry Charles in here. I was just doing a little channel surfing the other night stumbled across a borat. Whenever I across borad. I just stop. When we're at choice that I'd love the early scenes in his village. Like, that's all great. It's all great. But I'd have to look like like look at a list, but maybe the best comedy the century, the last whatever nineteen years, so and then there's all bunch of little stuff Larry directed that by the way, but there's a whole bunch of little stuff in there that you don't there's so much great big stuff that you don't even remember a little the little jewels in there, and Matt I was. That's great. I I love when he stumbles across the midwestern lady who's doing the lawn sale and thinks she said chips, he lading. I don't know why him sort of her being a gypsy. It doesn't even people who probably remember the scene because it's twenty eight out of thirty three scenes or whatever. But it's every bit as funny as anything you see in any any other movie dogs got clocked has got heart style hitting knocking bringing Doug to work. That's what happens. All right. So yeah. The kids and Lynette everybody's out of town and a long day at work. And so I brought fill in with me. Yes. Things that you think borat and Bruno and all these are new I mean, they're new classics their new movies and just in the few years since they've been made. I'm wondering if Larry thinks they could be made to day. So many things about him. It's only a few years old and yet, we're totally different place. And I watched the first two episodes of series angels world comedy. Oh my God. Whoever he's he's a hero for even wanting to broach the subject and go to those places and figure this out. It's it's intense Amalia rack, Nigeria Beeri a-. All right. I'll play that clip. You guys can just hear it. It's every bit as funny just listening. I can't imagine a cana- match, and I want to dollarshaveclub dot com slash but DS comm inter mad. Adam and Castrol edge for this half of the show. All right. Let's we'll just play. He's he's happened. Along a nice lady who's kind of Millfield lady who's throwing a yard sale on the front of our house. Do not fear gypsy. I want from you is your tears. Give them to me. I will take them. It's gotta lift occurs gypsy. I'm mid western farmer's daughter, Americana. You have many churches did Europe for this. We didn't rob them. They all came from inside the house. I will look churches gypsy. I will look on them. Many treasures like Jon call of the lawn. Who is this lady you have strong Barbie? These houses to campaign front. Child's doll do not try shrink. Midgets? I see this desire spells. Millionaire mind Seth. War. What? All right. I don't know. Why? Just like she's gypsy. And she has many treasures on the line. Give me your tears or I will take them. So. When he looked at the Barbie doll. He's like is this the person who lives here in town before you go over her lawn? I don't know. It just goes it's like a scene. I don't think it even think of if you're thinking of that movie. But it made it just makes me laugh. All right. So some movies do the broad comedy, welcome to the little comedy while this is one of the few that does both crashing through the old of the southern, you know, it's it's all the relics and the racist collectibles, and he's knocking them all down spent tastic, it's great. And he doesn't have a chorus of threat that you down the well throw the do. Me free. The knife fight the fight they could fight his his I don't know why his his jealous neighbour pack home. Always makes me laugh that guy that. All right. So anyway, Larry Charles the man behind all that stuff and so much more curb your enthusiasm, entourage, entourage entourage. So we'll do all that. Anyway, we have Bollywood we also have this deadline article, which I don't know. What would you call deadline, Brian? It's like industry site or resource or the periodical. I guess it's it's not a gossip blog. It's. Yeah. Riot or or the other one? Big Vegas convention now. Here's the question. Here's here's what I keep sort of asking myself. So I live in a kind of a world of will this. What will be what will this become what what what shall happen? You know when the phone rings? How's this going to work and? For the most part. It's a lot of. Oh, you know, Joe coy was struggling as a comedian are not struggling. But you know, he was a sort of an upper trajectory. But not where he wanted to be not where he wanted to be. And he went to he went to Netflix. And he said like, I've let's make a special, you know, and they said, no, let's not so Joko used as own money, and he went out and he shot his own special. And now, it's the number one comedy the year and and Netflix spot for ton of money. And then they offered him another one, I'm the money and whatever. So then I go all right. I'm going to stand up special, and then we'll sell it to net. Flix? Same thing happen for me. And then you give it to net flix. And then they're like, yeah. We watch fifteen minutes passing. And then you, oh, that's not. That's not how I was not how one out in my head. So there's a lot of that. And then there's there's good. And then there's this appointment, and you never really know. But one thing appears to be consistent is when you do something like they're doing the the what versus per Ford. Verse Friday, I'm trying to Matt Damon? And. I wish Eric Bana in the bail on the band. I don't know why they were screaming Christian bell. It was it's definitely based on our dock or it was inspired by our or whatever it is. But one thing I know will never happen is you'll never talk to anyone who made it. They'll never talk to you. I'll never I've never talked to anyone from the Newman family, not one person. I mean, I talked to the older brother Arthur homeless. Lives who lives in Palm Springs. Here's a sweet art of guy never spoke to any of the daughters are the family members family. There's like four daughters. Have never spoken to one of them forever about their father. Not look an Email like am in LA. And I see one of my dad's old cars are anything. This is. It's kind of it's weird that way, I'm confused. Like people say all the time. What's the family? Thank what the daughters thinker. What? Now Newman thicker whenever I go. I never never heard back. We've reached out a couple of times that's a charity event. Let Suba like never never hear anything. So there's this. There's this Shelby. Ferrari, doc, that's because it's drilling down on the Ken miles story, which is what we kind of drilled down on on our docket. It suggests that there some connection to it. But anyway, now, they think it's going to get some Oscar pas and someone from deadline went and saw they play the. Trailer paid a minute of it from the steam for the moving. The guy's going nuts about it. And all I'm saying how is this not gonna work out? What's going to happen? It's just weird. I'll never at some point run into Matt Damon. And I'll say something and he'll give an answer. That's like he didn't hear me. And then that'll be that'll be it. Yes. I don't know. I I I would expect like I'm going to get an Email from seventy go. Hey, man, we watch saying we want you to consult on it or something. But it never never goes that way. Go ahead. You have. Yeah. Here's a couple of highlights. The and the beginning is the Twentieth Century, Fox vice-chairman Emma Watson ended. Fox's part of the Disney session. This is four cinema. Con with the first trailer of James Mangold Ford versus Ferrari, the trailer opens on Christian Bale's cocky race car driver, Ken miles, who's with his son at sunset at a racetrack. Matt Damon's Carroll Shelby is asked by John burnt. All's Leah coca to build the greatest sports car ever. It's not about speed. It's about survival said Shelby. You need a car. That's better than anything ends. Oh Ferrari comes up with Walt Disney studios president of production. Five he means lasting twenty four hours of just veteran listening. Not anyone surviving an accident. Because can didn't right got well Disney studio president of production followed the trailer, and he was so wild he wished he could get a screener of the picture right now originally screener, the movie he's producing FOX moved for versus. The heart all yours describe that to me as the guy who wrote the article wished he had the screener right now that was Mike spare flange which made sense to me. I would have said the same thing you said if the guy made the movie can't watch the movie, but anyway, sorry, they're moving it right into the center of HUD, the beating heart of award season November fifteenth. Well, I just watch like a two hour almost done version of our Shelby dock. So that should be done in. You won't get credit for stuff not to call the span about, but I'll I will be curious. It's weird in in just a cover your ass way for them to reach out and say, hey, we're really inspired by this. And we wanted you to know that we know that you know, you know, what I mean like instead of just not ignoring it. It's a weird moved to not cover your ass to acknowledge you for doing this ever met Matt Damon? So there's a weird way. Wait. Yeah. I want to cover their asses to say, yeah. We know it's Adams, and we just it's just one of those. It's it's a it's a world. And I can't quite put my finger on because it's more of a feeling, but it's like it's sort of reminds me of us going. Well, let's talk to Tom Cruise about Paul Newman racing for half an hour. And it's like that will never happen never happened. And it's like, I don't know why I we'll just bring the camera to where we are. We'll sit down and tell me some good stories about working with Paul Newman driving, Paul Newman back in the day, or whatever. It'll never have Cosby for Willie t ribs all that turned into was a two hour thirteen minute argument from LA to San Diego with Mike August, which at some point somebody started putting some stuff out like, oh, hey, Tom Cruise talked at him about about Newman. Make it a doc or whatever it is. And then that turned into some sort of ugly story, and some brag magazine or something that you've never heard of. And then Tom Cruise's publicist said to Mike. What is this and basically accusing him of a planting a bad story. Like, what is this? What do you know about this and Mike then said, and this is the beginning of our to our argument to San Diego, Mike shed, neither one of us knew what this thing was with the article was what this magazine was Mike shed. I'm gonna tell them I'll get rid of this article like I'll find this thing. I'll make it. Go away that'll curry good favor with them. And then we'll get Tom Cruise for an interview. And I said, no, it's just going to confirm her allegations blackmail behind she's accusing you of planting this article, she's not accusing me she's asked me what I know about it. I should might. She clearly when to ask you what you know about this. That's an accusation of you planting the article of this your answer needs to be. I have no idea no connection to these people. I wouldn't know how to content them not. Nah. I'll just get taken down a suggest some some insight. It's like in the godfather. When can you give this letter to Michael if I take that letter could be proven of law that I know where he is. You know what I mean? It's like. You know what I mean? It's like suggest I have some inroad same thing in the sopranos. Don't apologize makes you look guilty and the next if that's what it takes. I'm sorry and the whole team blows up. Well, we've settled this in about a minute and ten seconds. We were unable to settle this in a two hour journey because every single time I would go. I just kept circle mecca Mike you understand. She thinks she did it. She didn't said she thinks see thinks you plan at the store. I didn't know she's asking what do we know about that's g saying you put she didn't say that she's implying, and if you say to her we'll get it taken down that implies that we have relationship with this have light. And he's like why why? And what do you mean why you're staying take it down? Like, I don't have a relationship with them when you have confusion inside confusion like the Russian doll. But we don't have a relation. I know. We don't have a relationship with them. But it sounds like we do when you tell her. We're going to take it down. Why would that out? Why would weirdest thing anyway to our LA San Diego? That's that's how I we could've continued again. Then I got out of the car, and I was met by my older sister. Jay Miller who then provided me with the. What hot wings and said, I know much you'll have hot wings, you work for me for six years ever order. Now. Okay. And then the whole branded discussion of wing started nets. That's when all kind of fell apart, then the topless activist wouldn't get topless on stage. Everything was the free the nipple pioneer these peop-. Okay. Anyway, I predict great things for I we have a Bollywood we have let's see we have what else do we have? We have banks bracket coming up. We got. Am curls. Unprepared. Which one do we have? Oh, there's a free the nipple one actually to. I'm still cutting. Okay. I'll give you second tape. I about Dollar Shave Club. And then we'll we'll do a ball. How about that Dollar Shave Club? They have everything you need to look feel and smell your best. And my best you never go the store. Well, you might go the store to buy like an avocado or something but far as the grooming needs. Now, they deliver everything right. Your door keeps me fully stocked. Never run out. I gotta tell you. I used a razor Justice morning. I it. It's so convenient in the notion of making a run out of the store for a two dollar item is insane. And they have hair stuff. They have skin stuff that face stuff. It's all there. They have a new program automatically keeps. You stocked up. I think what we're figuring out here. People is. Your time is worth something. So whatever you can sort of mechanize have brought to your house and not have to write down laundry. Lists this stuff and go go to stores and wait in line. That's what you wanna do.

Full you spend remember his face. Transform to array full. Us is in theaters now, I mentioned a couple of days ago. I of course, sort of resisted doing this because one of my least favorite things is to should I'm movies. I want every movie I go to see to be good. It's one thing of like some big bloated studio. Focus group made by committee, just uninspired money grab that's one thing. But like Jordan Peele wrote and directed this movie. Like, he he's passionate about to some degree. There is some you know, some authorship here. I agree. Outside step. Well, first off, it's drew. But also a lot of people might be thinking about seeing this movie, and maybe you could take their fourteen dollars directed towards something, you know, that was more deserving. I mean, look at that. It is people are pretty are pretty limited. I'll probably see a movie in theater four or five times a year. Somebody stops me from seeing one move. I wish I could have stopped from seeing the bohemian rhapsody pointed myself another direction, I guess. Okay. Fair enough. So us theaters now it is rented by Jordan Peele. You've course know him Kim peel, of course, but he wrote and directed get out huge phenomenon. A couple of years ago this one stars LaPorta neon. Go who might know from twelve years. A slave is very very good net. Winston Duke, Elizabeth moss. And Tim hi decker are also in this says at ninety four percent rotten tomatoes, which we discussed just sixty nine. Percent. But the audience, I'm I'm. Naive enough to think that that. It's not a woke thing with critics like they're not trying to be politically, correct. They're just trying to not be caught on the wrong side of the cool, new filmmaker. But who knows what the discrepancy could be. It's just I think it's just not that good of a movie. So here's the how much do you guys know about the movie, I don't know anything quite a bit because I really didn't plan on seeing it. So I read a lot of spoiler. So I'm trying I successfully somehow voided seeing any trailers and commercials. I saw billboards can help us either billboards there's everywhere at least in LA. So I I don't know exactly what everyone knows about the tread lightly. Because there's a lot of reveals it's it's a horror thriller lot of reveals a lot of twists and things like that. The basically the movie opens with young girl like the neon go age nine she's at the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk with their family and a carnival rise. Now, all that stuff. And she's. Kinda wanders off on her own. What you shouldn't do, and she ends up sort of in this house of mirrors, funhouse, you know, lose yourself kind of thing. And she sees something that startles her and her face gets a gas, which is a great moment. It's just a great cinematic mowing this little kid with just aghast face cut. The black movie starts, that's like the preamble. Right. And then we get to modern day where we have grow. That's nice eighty six. We have grown up lupita now that presumably the young girls grownup. She has a family to kids Boina, girl and husband, and they are going back to Santa Cruz for a the own or rent a beach house vacation type of thing and strange things. Start to happen. I think everyone knows that this point Chris people know, there's like there's others. There's like. That's what the movie implies the the bus stop posts. Okay. So there there is there is a sort of. It's gonna the tropes of zombie movie. There's like others right willing mirror images of the family of everyone. And they're out there for blood for some reason. That's an aunt mersal. Okay. I wanna make sure that people that wasn't surprising something so when evil lipid Congo shows up they invade their house, and they sort of hold them. Not knifepoint scissor point everything is is overrun every movie the half-baked or overrun like why scissors? Why not they hold them at bay with scissors and evil pita sits down by the fire. They've done a very good job. Not releasing a lot of clips couldn't find. But when I first heard leading the youngest voice, I was like, I was pretty funny. Like oh shit. She serious OSHA. This is going to go on the whole movie. Oh, no. Oh, no, no, no. This is a bad choice. We'll hear a few seconds of this. The most I could find. Be fool. That's evil the pitas like evil, you'll counter articles about this voice, by the way, she had to work so hard. And this is what she's trying to summon. Sure. So we're gonna listen to a clip of Tim hi decker her co-star on the red carpet discussing discussing her choice to go with this voice. This is not a compliment. I was like, wow. That's big choice. That scary. That is just a brave choice because it's so out there. But I understand why she's doing it throughout the movie becomes more clear at it's pretty wild. There's not a compliment. She nail. Hey, good for you. Good luck. Yeah. So he didn't it didn't work like get out. No nothing worked and the genus. There's a lot written about this movie end. I gave similarly negative thoughts on the Phil vault. Couple of a lot of people have been like, well, this means this and this and this actually like, okay, I understand that will make sense there is actually sort of an explanation for why she's talking like that. It's not a good enough movie to justify any of it. Like, you can you can have a reasons like, oh, this symbolizes that in this actually is the reason this happens, and this I don't care. I was never on board with this movie to Thursday through them like much a really bad move. Get I was a slow burn to earn. Not bigots setting the next and night Shama lawn. Miller. Did you say he said, I think, but I don't know what that means hurtful. I don't know why he shed it under why he started laughing so hard to get out. I would imagine it does. It's not satisfying. No satisfaction wrapped up in a bow. That explains all the reveals that you have to guess a lot of it and not just that. But get was outrageous data's enough that it was so silly that it worked out. It's an outrage notion. So here's the question. This is John one one everyone agreed is masterpiece. This one. It's going to the critics are in a tough position. Because a he's he's he's fresh on the scene. He's a man of color way out of its lane. And doing what Alfred Hitchcock did. And now there's this. So you have to there's a little sort of cool down period. But the question is what is the third one is going to kinda it's the rubber match. You know, this is a fight. It's UFC fight. This guy won the first fight that guy won the second. And whoever wins the third Shelby. The winner of the series. We don't really look at it as he wants sixty six I sent that guy. One thirty three percents. We'll have to see what the next offering is. I'm with parv be it for me to give Jordan appeal career advice. I think it was. I think it was a mistake to go back to like that thriller horror genre. Like, he's a hilarious guy. And there's actually a couple of funny moments in the movie like Hugh should make a really killer comedy. You know what I mean? Like don't pay yourself. Don't make the mistake. I'm not chamois shoot. I came out of the box incredibly well with this. This thing. I did say him. And now we're going to do this again. Yeah. No. You don't just make another good movie. And when you talk about what the third offering will be you know, he's about to they're about to launch twilight zone with with you. Appeal as rod sterling. So I don't know if that considered his third offering, and if that's going to be based on anything, I'll wait for the theatrical offering and call that. All right. So unimpressed, I really really disliked this movie. And I think most people like anyone else I've seen it anyway, caylin Saad. He didn't like it either. It's it's just a bad movie, man. So earnest didn't like them. But so. And can we get past this little spot in history where we're breaking everything down like that the whole race thing where it's like well people went out and saw Black Panther. But people then whatever it's like people like entertainment and as far. As far as black, folks. Entertaining us, we're fine with that. You watch any was the biggest star in the world for several eighty NBA game at any given moment. There may be ten black men on the court at that's entertainment. I why do we look at sports is anything different? It's like we are perfectly. We're used to being entertained by faithless. No, you're like, well, if you make a black movie star superhero is white America. Yes. We will ask trotting out five block is this goes. Yeah. Well, if you look at all the stuff, I mean, just historically even go back, you know, vaudevillian and black vase and all that kind of stuff. It's like, yes that's in minstrel show. In a weird way. You can make the argument like, well, we're going to trust the black velit run the country or fly the airplane like that's an argument, but the entertainment department, no problem. We're perfectly used to that. I grew up. I was watching everyone Bill Cosby shows and listening. Up. Nettie Murphy, every retry everything else it's weird that in two thousand and nineteen we still have to go is America ready for you. Make a good product white America who likes being entertained and is used to being entertained by black folk will happily drop money and go do it. And I don't draw big distinction between a sporting event a boxing match of why why is it? So insanely different or thriller, a movie Reggie album. Whatever whatever it is. We will. We will put the mind now if it's a subpar product, and then we won't, but we're we're. We're based on that. And look there may be. I don't even know if there's a pocket, but if there's got gotta be smaller than pockets gotta be that Levi jeans pocket, Ricky, you're over that one that there's that there is that portion of America, but they don't go out and see live events buy tickets for movies or go see stuff, like they're not go, you know, so. Two thousand nineteen we probably just be done with that question. Call a movie, I just stick with the wonder out loud. Every time I go to support. Are we ready? We act surprised like Black Panther crushed it. Yes. It did. Because it was good. And everyone wanted to go see it. There you go. All right. Hopefully, steered some people away who are maybe on the fence if you really want to. You're a really good movie. It's playing close to Apollo eleven documentary about the Apollo eleven landing all with footage from NASA from the late sixties values what unquote moon land. That's right. Sure. And lily white everybody, that's Brian's point. Array baldi. Got a question up here from Phoenix thanks for that and so- bald. I think that I think the plan is there's a movie you would like to crap upon you just steer people to another movie that's fair. And it's it's great for the other movie deserves it. Okay. Ken, fifty two Phoenix. Hey, Adam it's going on now. Having a good day. Hope you guys I'm gonna good day. Get my question, you see chores for sunny and your daughter. Do you have civic chores big chores? And does he help you clean the pool? I know you've got a pool guy and a yard guy. You got kids. Why don't they do that? I signed a kicking fill in the red. I ordered. I ordered sunny to come help me in the garage couple sours ago when trying to frame my son about a sonnet kit, and it just a pile of wood showed up mouth. Saana kit is like it's not a kid at all. So anyway, was like framing framing this structure inside of storage closet. My basement. So I forced him to go help unload the stuff from the back of that SUV the two by fours. He did a little of that. I've told him to clean up a stupid room the other day and kind of cleaned it up. Do they get allowance? Never did that it's it's allowed to take money insane world, then even care. We're horrible. You never gun allowance. Oh, I did Cup oppose it a certain. At a certain point, my mom would just give me a shaving of care. She had a big block. Is the back. Sharpen break off a piece, and we bartered with it that way, I'd mow the lawn guts about eight ounces of care. She off a piece handed me. I'd fight it to make sure it was real like gold to make sure it's a real coin. Some point. I worked out a deal at the end when I was in high school live with my dad. I I remember a pretty rich allowance I think I got about six or eight bucks a week, and I had mow the lawn and take out the garbage and baba. I'm gonna try. It's an uphill battle Ken. I'm not there a lot of the time lunatics taken over the asylum. I I here's what I will. Here's what I will attempt to do. And and I'm gonna I'm gonna try, but it's going to be a battle which is. I have really I have people. They're just like there's two categories of human beings. And there's human being that I go. Hey, here's what I want or here's what should do or here's which got about. And they go. Okay. We'll do boss, and then other ones that are bottomless with with the excuse to sort of sort of bottomless. And I have a lot of that it my house like a lot of that. Like, if I'll say like, it'll come home should bring in and out, you know, and I'll go get in and out burger for me. I didn't know you're going to be at home. And then I'll go just get an extra burger every time and then chill go. I thought you're on your diet. And I'll go maybe I don't know. Maybe I am not. But we're twenty five if the extra burger and -ffiliated are all it or Sunday and show. Yeah. One if you're on your diet, and then I go, well, I don't know just call me then and tell you to bring the Burgum. She goes you never answer your phone. Okay. Again. I don't know what we can do. But just by an extra burger, I'll pay for it. And that that'll be that. So there's a lot of that in my house and Talia does a lot of that. And I don't see I don't see it as a path to correction. What I'm saying is I'm saying there's a problem sometimes big sometime small I'd like to fix it. So here's my offering. If you turn the offering back on me, then we'll never. Yeah. Whatever fix the problem in my thing is I'd like to fix it and move on check box, right, and everyone everyone has a degree. You know, everyone has a degree of. Hey, hey, there's dishes in the, hey, those weren't my like everyone has that mode. Like, I get it. But a certain point some people wrestle you down to the ground with it and Talia was leaving the house the other day, I've taken her to Starbucks of something and we're like leaving a room she's walking out of. A room, and of course, ceiling fan going full blast. And I said, hey, gotta shut your fan before you leave the room now. And she said my room gets really hot. We're both right understand, please. Let's not go down this please hear stance entire life of this. It's an entire life. It's a half your life just battling this like just just everyone just go. Yeah. Got it. Sorry won't happen again. No saying nothing just off and just keep walking because that we have to stop with the stop because you're basically telling me, I'm right to leave this thing running while we're in at the Starbucks, which is not correct. It's also true that you room may get hot. But you're not in it, you built the bridge from that place to this place. And we don't need that brenten shut it off. We fan will last longer. I'll pay less than Electric's ity. No reason can I tell you my mom used to handle this stuff, by the way, the younger the human being the more of this. They have in them. I my God. I mean, I. I've had conversations with nineteen year olds twenty three year olds. Like, I don't even know what we're even talking about. I have to yell at him certain point, just stop it. Just stop it moving on. Sorry. Yes. Good. So if we would give my attitude or not do the thing that she asked. She would say, Yep. She would say go get a switch. No. She would say, you know, what if especially for coming in the house? She called me go go back outside story. What what do you mean? No, go back outside ring the doorbell. I'll come get it. Okay. And then she opened the door. Hi, gina. How are you today? Fine. What can I do for you? So we would have to completely re set the scene as though we were in a TV show, and it was good at work election. The choices you made. Kenney still there. Yeah. Yeah. I'm listening. I'm going to try. I'll try it's tough. Now. I'd say thank you got a uphill battle. But with being older, I got a second family. It's it's it's a little different world but do much better job to second. That's that's what you're suggesting worry. Yeah. Leaf the pool at least something cleaned the pool. That's it. Not hard. Game console. Also don't have a lot of muscles for doing stuff because they don't do a lot of stuff, but I'm gonna try I dragged sunny down to the garage. He really that fun. He hung out for about ninety minutes. He took some two by fours out out there. He watched me work sauna. Yeah. It did a little some some he's okay with it. He's he's got to get something for for an Italian to do. But yeah, you're right. It's horrible. The irony is, I'm sure they'll be complaining in therapy. One day about me and Lynette not make him. Do the thing. There were fighting against all the time. But yeah, I it's theirs. Everyone in my house kind of lives in zero gravity environment. And then I live in a environment one of the planet. It has extra gravity seven hundred pounds. Venus? I gotta go out and constantly work in Hearn and pedal, the bike, and blah, blah, blah. And so I've got pretty good quads when it comes to the pedaling, but I gotta develop I gotta go home and do little training on threatening gravity around. Thanks for the answer. Yeah. You know, what Ken I'm done with my seventh podcast. I'm going to run home and everyone's in Vegas. Everyone's out with Jimmy last night eating sushi. At least you got to see it on Snapchat, or whatever. Yeah. Well, when they get back from Vegas of your high straight number and tell them to get to work late a lot. Yeah. You guys have a good. Thanks. Yeah. Runs in Vegas. Mike Mike told me that went Alba Jimmy last night. My Jimmy's Jamie's going nuts. I mean Jimmy is Jimmy a foodie now, he's a rich foodie now, he's backing hometown Vegas. And they went out that I don't know what. Sushi and Mike just said it was insane. It just kept coming kept coming to the table. And Linnet was there, and I guess sows air and Jimmy was there and everyone eating and Mike Zahren, then Mike should he ate so much that he had a weird conversation? I talked to Lynette last night at like nine thirty. And I said like I have these conversations a lot rhyme like in and she's like Mike's Mike's here too. And I'm like Mike said he he was leaving on Wednesday night now. Well, he's here. I should. How's it gonna it's nine thirty nine going to get catch flied out of and? That's like he's leaving after after the meal, and I'm like, okay. And I'm racking my brain. Like what what this out eleven o'clock flight out of I've never been on any late night flight out of a not to L A or whatever. And he drove which which is fine. I always tell people as it pertains to driving. It whatever it's three, you know, get to the airport. Our early the flight, whatever catch a cab or Uber, whatever by the time. You get to the hotel you've saved about half an hour driving, unknown traffic times.

You can leave us a message at eight six three four one seven four four to send interesting point. I was book. It's true. That successful, folks. Usually don't eat them much tuning up. I was listening to my friend, Larry elder who does a radio show. He's been in on this show. He's brother, but it's pretty no nonsense, and he had told a story. And the story was it's it's interesting story. He he was on the Geraldo show many years ago when Geraldo had like a daytime show, and the whole panel was talking about this guy who went to prison for very small amount of cocaine and how how bad that the laws were and Bubba, blah. And Larry elder sort of true to form said, hey, man, you broke the long now you're going to jail, and if it's like, yeah. But does anyone deserve to go to jail for this length of time for this little bit of drugs or selling this a little bit of drugs. And his thing was like, well, you knew what the law was and you dated anyway, then you got caught. Now, you're in jail. Oh, so that's that. It is what it is. And everyone else, of course, took the other side is as we all would be apt to do. And then the guy went to jail and hell the guy did for the first part of his time in jail was think when I get out I'm going to kill Larry elder now, which is all what we were looking for sideshow. Bob. And in a certain point that guy got out any like called Larry's radio show. And he said, I wanna thank you. And he said. 'cause you're the only one who said you have a choice you made a choice. This is your decision. You didn't have to sell cocaine even if a small amount. Okay. And then you did and you got caught. And now, you're that. And you're you make your own choices. You're not a victim. And you're in charge. You made a bad choice. You got you got empower people make a bad choice. Something bad happens. We can we can blame the system and the system can always be fixed or tuned up or whatever but still have to give people. Not removing the choice from them is scaring. That's scary. That's the worst thing you can do to someone remove roving the part where they get to go down this road or go down that road will right. And I think we can all agree that we don't want people to go to prison forever for selling very small amount of drugs. But I think we can also gray that we don't want people to sell drugs at all. And it'd be nice and I'd like to power to make that decision as well. So, but is interesting. Yeah. Beacon truth to power. But I don't know this guy got a little bit of truth from Larry elder, and it seemed it seemed to work. So did you kill him? All right. Let's see. Let me hit you with Betty assign. Then we'll roll right into our banks bracket here. But the. Looking for March madness, man, I think sonny's little airs come out of his March madness Malone. I didn't know he was nineteen. Yeah.

Famously performed by Elvis, really, I don't I sixty eight or something could look it up. But when you hear the lyrics to in the ghetto, and you see what somebody was a picture that someone is painting of that world in that in the sixties in the late sixties and go seems like they've wrote that on Wednesday. And then you're like, wait a minute. How come we're getting onto fifty fifty years here and not wait year with that nine hundred sixty nine. All right. It's been so it's the fiftieth anniversary of that song. Still resonates more. Larry Charles is out there. So but write it down Mack. I'll break that that down on the next show because it's it's kind of crazy. It's been fifty years, and he's just kind of Mon just even just kind of describing what's going on right now. And I don't. No, I just feel like. We got a lot of money we paid a lot of taxes. We have a lot of rules and regulations I feel like programs things week fit like. We could build an airport or we can build a road or their stuff. We can do and go overseas, we can take thousands and thousands of millions of pounds of women to bring it into the middle of the desert somewhere and fights and battles and stuff. Pipe clean water this one. Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not talking about throwing money at the problem. But I'm just saying if you really took that prominent all right? What's the route? What are we talking about? And let's give ourselves ten years and see if we can make a pretty big dent like you, you you you take something like road fate fatalities. You know, and how many how many people died per million miles traveled than nineteen take the same year that dammit max patta nineteen sixty nine. I'll bet you. We have done tenfold better in the safety department, which is a million miles traveled. How many how many deaths on the nation's highways in fifty years with all the everything everything that we've instituted? We've made it ten times safer at least not a dent in the in the ghetto, the great Elvis would be rolling around in his grave if he could hear this conversation. All right. We'll break that down. For the for the next show interested about that. Larry Charles here struck me. I was like Larry, David. I love Larry, David and left curb. And I love all the stuff. Larry Charles worked on. And then I thought, oh, I wonder if Larry likes him because he's Larry. And then went, oh, wait a minute. They both have first name last name. That's right.

We've got the social media's we've got the Internet's without the PODCAST session medium. Because isn't that plural media. I think you're right. I go with the funny session right. You do not go with the straight all right so now you know who we are. I am Dave the funny. Holly is the stay on point. Stay on target. Certainly we never veer off never never ever ever doesn't feel like we're veering off from nineteen eighty-three wrote which we should by the way the podcast website for the podcast is wd Dam Park Dot Com. Please sign up for our email list. I think in April. We're going to be sending out our I e mail. So you have time to to get the inaugural issue as to. We are yeah. I'm excited to see whatever's going to be on there because what difference does it make is where we talk everything eighties but mostly music right and right now. We're talking nineteen eighty-three. We're counting down the hits. That Karaoke played way back in the day. Kiro Q. Every year put out their top. What oh six point seven. Because that was the frequency steelers still is their frequency so they put out the top one zero six point seven songs of the year. We are now up to nine hundred eighty three. And we've been counting down the nineteen eighty-three songs and we are currently at number. Twenty CAC has since pared down their list to eighty songs so twenty six point. Seven songs have been eliminated from the originalist. And we like to guess or I like to guess which one's been eliminated. That's true some songs. There hasn't been twenty six point. Seven songs eliminated because some songs have been added in like they didn't play the violin dams originally and now on their updated rock of the eighties list. The violent films are now representing. Most of the songs are are on the list however there is one song that has been eliminated. I think you might be able to guess which when it is and we'll see because we have talked about it in the past. There's your hint basically we're counting down. We Love countdowns. We like music countdowns. We are counting down the hits. We are currently number twenty what we have in number twenty Nina with ninety nine lift balloons back in one thousand nine hundred three. It was at number seventeen on McKay rock list. Much like our favorite Falko. Yes this was a song that was recorded both in German and in English. Did you use to try to sing? Live German as if we knew the words never ever ever do you know German. I don't know I studied German. I hear what you sounded like. Nope okay fine. You did when I say look balloons. What I didn't realize about this song is that it's not an exact translation into from German into English. There were a new lyrics added to this song at why I have no idea. Yes so there so there was an English language version titled Ninety. Nine red balloons. Yes so yeah. It just says it's not a direct translation of the German original and contains lyrics with a somewhat different meaning. I don't know why they did that but that was something that was done different meaning. I'm surprised I I understand like to you know to you know because not everything you know Matt syllables. But I'm surprised that they would change the meaning of the song. Do you know the meaning of of there were ninety nine. Red Balloons. That's all I do. There's more to this song. Okay if you knew German as I do okay. Maybe you'd understand what's about the dreams of the German people that were lost after World War Two. The ninety nine balloons represented many dreams that each person had and at the end of the song she just wants to prove that the German people did have dreams by finding one balloon. Says she finds one balloon a dream. Let's ago what I read. Better check my sources again. The rolling stones like rebel yell influence so many songs while at a June nineteen eighty two concert by the stones in West Berlin nares guitarist. Carlo cahrges noticed that balloons were being released as you watch them move toward the horizon. He knows them shifting and changing shapes where they looked like strange spacecraft. He thought about what might happen if they floated over the Berlin Wall to the Soviet sector. Okay so you're saying that that's the meaning of the song as well or that's an alternate meaning or that how these meld. These two meanings master probably. I didn't realize Nayna is the name of the band. Yeah it's the name of the band I mean it's not her name. It was her nickname right. Which means little girl in Spanish? You still like the song. Yes I like the song but I'm not sure if my liking of the song comes with the memories it brings back of of qe wreck in that era. Just if I liked the song if I would like to sign as much of I heard it today do you like it. Yes I still like it. A Lot. NEE NA. The Solo artist does not like the English version. Apparently she has never performed that song. The English version ever ever ever ever true true. Wow you know. They had no Intention of releasing it in in the US was it a radio DJ. That's found the song. Was It on K rock. Because they say they credited a jacket. Karaoke was a young young attractive woman singing a song. A Rodney who played it. I can tell you right away. I'm sure you're right yes I'm sharing. Yes Yeah Rodney on the rock three. Yeah he played introduced us to a lot of songs has an affinity for young girls. Singers scarily young but But that's Rodney He. I don't know anyway. Got Attention on K rock and spread because that is the influence of Karaoke Nice. Yeah they did have a first which is called a nerd. Get trumped that yeah. That's her Americanized. Noor TRUMPED THEIR THEIR GIFT TRUMP. Which means just a dream also kind of a catchy song didn't make the The US hot one hundred but reached number seventy in the UK. It's a fun song but it's Ninety. Nine love balloons. Did you watch the video for ninety nine lift indict? I remember the video but as as videos are but they're playing live and there's like smoke going off in the like different colored smoke. It seems like it's out of control over blow. I feel like someone the Pyrotechnic. I really enjoyed a blow up stuff. Think these different colors of smoke going off and I think the ban was getting annoyed. But I'll go back and watch it again. I think that happened. That has happened when somebody in testing making the video has an affinity for all the new effects that were available. Yeah we've got a budget okay. We got some or. I'll get some smoke bombs. Don't worry you'll have plenty. We enjoy you would call this band. A one hit wonder but yet they still live on. Nina's got a solo career that she's had for since nineteen eighty nine and she's still plays in Germany And has a pretty good career going on over there and I guess the the whole band reunited in two thousand seventeen to play Noor. Gut tromped to celebrate their fortieth anniversary. Oh yeah all right. Let's move onto number nineteen what we got. We have the fixed once again. One thing leads to another nice This now is number. Sixteen on the updated charts moved up. Another three spots reached number four on the US billboard charts back in November of the eighty three hit number two on the US mainstream rock charts and went to number one in Canada. What can you tell me about about one thing leads with other the meaning of the song? Would you like to know the meaning of this? Oh yes please do tell me. It's supposedly about malleable politicians sacred and said an interview. He said if you're going to be a liar you'd better be a damn good liar and remember what you said or the whole thing is going to get pear-shaped that was thirty years ago and look where the system is now a. Lotta people stand on ballot boxes and say a lot of things in Lyon order to get elected and do nothing so those songs. I'm pretty proud of how pertinent today certainly is also pertinent. I guess for us of a certain age I happen to find. This actually was on the fixes website. They have An article from Fortune magazine from November of two thousand nineteen and Just mentioned that fidelity investments recent campaign announcing lowered accounts. Costs part of the industry's race to the bottom and fees Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. So anyway WHO's fidelity turn to to get their message across fix fix easy save by zero nine hundred ninety three? Jay? I'm by British new wave band. The fix that's very clever. It says that wasn't the casual selection but a very calculated one think it through which Americans are hitting their prime earning years right now starting to inherit the vast wealth of their parents getting serious about managing their investments. Not Us but apparently people our age. So yeah they're reaching out to generation X. of course it says sandwiched and her at the sees and often overlooked between the boomers millennials. Yeah and which musical era do. Those investors remember fondly from their childhoods the eighties so they used saved by zero. They also used one thing leads to another. They've used both those sides. Clever good marketing the well. The chief marketing officer says are targeted. Audience loves hearing those songs when they hear them it gets them to pay. Attention reminds them of when they were first starting out in life and now they are a bit older and starting to reap the benefits of investing and starting up podcasts. They are starting a podcast. Exactly Yeah we. Can Invest our earnings bets true. We should do that so yeah I guess that saved by zero was so successful. We launched more funds like that the couple of months later we turn to the fix again for one thing leads to another pretty rare that you get a perfect. Follow up song like that. You know what I did. Forget you remembering it now. I am remembering now side. Kernan was in the better. Be Good to me video with Tina. Turner. Yes he was. You're absolutely right yeah. He is spectacular watching last night and a first of all team. Turner spectacular. She is is one of my favorite songs to the. She's great video and then size kind of moving around or moving around her thought really necessary but you know Seiger in and why not remember him and his hair from that video. Sure that Billy's Africa look from From Karate Kid Good Luck. We should all have that luck. Although I believe it's Williams App can now how many times I have to tell you this. He will always be billy. How many times do I have to tell you this? Okay all right. So let's Let's move on from the fix from fidelity to to Tina Turner Tina Turner in this now. Locate key rock didn't play. That's that's another good excuse to Mitch and other artists that Tina Turner. It has been a request. An anonymous request that we from nineteen eighty three and our primer. We try and go over pop songs that were. I know how much you hate pop songs but hey pop songs. I love pop song. You just don't like to have the cure be referred to as a pop artist now. I don't even know they had many pop hits we. We should always recognize great stuff and Tina Turner. I mean when we hit eighty four with private dancer we will. We will mention. The we mentioned a lot. I think we just mentioned her better. Be Good to me. That's it yeah. That's a great song it is. It is indeed. We will talk more about it in the next year which is next year. But that's really not too far away in podcast. Here's all right so let's move on to number eighteen. Which is the Greg Kim Band Jeopardy Frankin spiracy? Now we talked about this. Okay first of all. This song is also moved up. Three spots and Number Fifteen on the K rock updated list. Okay Greg loved simple pop songs. Greg like Paul's he named albums. So yes okay. So after his debut in nineteen seventy six called Greg. Kin Nineteen seventy seven. He came out with Greg King again. Then we got here. We go ready. We got next of kin. Rock N Roll Ken Ten. You'd Kim spiracy contagious citizen can uncontrollable can of Hearts. True Confessions then. We have his all encompassing album. Kim pleat and then we have his comeback album called rekindled. I can explain this. I can couldn't think of a better name for this purpose. Yeah it's a perfect pet name. Apparently this Greg likes to dig deep. And he did. He did but yeah jeopardy. The great fun side. Yeah did you watch the video for this? Do you remember the video? Now because I'm thinking of the Weird L. version. Of course you are. Yeah so I can't remember the Greg. Ken Well it kind of ties into the weird Al Version. Because in the video Greg King is going to get married but of course. He's got cold feet. He's looking you know he's walking down. The aisle and the bride is always covered up. You can't really see what she how she looks. The preacher is there. Greg looks to the audience and he sees people some people. Are you know one couple is chained together by by their hands? Some are kind of fuse together. Their hands are fused together. It's black this out. He's getting. He's getting cold feet. He's not feeling well and then Then he lifts up Vail first versity seizes beautiful bribe but then she turns into a Zombie. And he's like I'm Outta here. Forget it so he escapes out and then he's about to drive away and he sees his lovely bride not bride. I guess whatever expands the ex-fiancee and she slams her flowers down on the sidewalk and then she's looks across the street and she sees Greg Kin and she smiles and Greg polls up to her and they escape out without without getting married but they drive away and the license plate says lips. I don't know why it says lips but it does. I think they eloped. So it's that my ending to it in your mind. They got married. They maybe they did a low. Maybe the they just stayed together. They stayed together escaped. Okay in the Weird Al's version. He does he does horribly on the jeopardy question hence the name I lost on jeopardy video version. He's on jeopardy. And the questions are number bricks in the Great Wall of China secret ingredient found in both cheese whiz and crazy glue and the daily double question is this. German baroness could suck the chrome off offender. And of course he can't answer. He has no idea he's horrible. They throw them throw them out of the studio and he ends up in the back of a car and the driver turns around. Of course it's Greg Kid and they drive away and the license plate says loser and of course weird. Al's career has lasted although Greg Greg. Still going strong but You know weird. Al is still at Weird Al Peak and Greg Greg Kid you know. He's I think he's he's kind of institution in San Francisco. Yeah do you know. He's going strong. Do you know what he does. Please tell me he wrote books and he was the morning show guy on a station in San Jose. Okay and he does. He lives up there. I guess I'm assuming he's still lives up there but they say continues to perform at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk at least into the early two thousands. Okay Nice Yeah. Let's go to not multifaceted. Deuce see that he was inducted into San Jose's Rock Hall of fame in two thousand seven. San Has has a rock hall of fame. They do. Who else is in it? I did see that. This is something my mom would do as well if your if your child has a little bit of talent back in the seventies or something it's as When when Greg was seventeen. Is Mother submitted? A tape of one of his original songs to the talent contest of the local top forty radio station W. CEO which he took first prize won a typewriter a stack. So yeah that that was the start because his own. Greg is so talented. Well she wasn't wrong. She was not robbed. But I see see all moms doing something like that. Do you think that he wrote his book? On that typewriter. One could be good question. Yeah so the Doobie brothers are on the are in the San Jose Rock Hall of Fame Class of Twenty twenty. Oh timely because they are touring this year.

You think of heroin you think of the police I do. I mean sting. Come on that look not be. I mean. He had good hair but I don't think of him as you know I mean George. Michael had great hair. Yeah but sting had all those guys have that like that shaggy. I was a good. It was a good hair. Look it was a great heroine but it wasn't. I don't know if I would call conic like this. Okay because the machine you you could recognize them just by the look of their heads right you. Would you'd see three heads shadows shadows of their profiles of what they look like. And just judging by the hair you would recognize. That's a police. I agree with you. They have gray hair. I love their hair. I just didn't see it as iconic. Would YOU RECOGNIZE KIPNES HAIR?

M. to get started so do it now. The police the police King of pain. And what instrument is featured on this Marimba vibraphone Roomba so a vibraphone player is a vibraphonist. Did we ever figure that out? Because the vibraphone was featured on the song was it. I will never stop the in the Bunyamin Echo on. The bodyman had the vibraphone. Oh Yeah yes. And that's a vibrant. The person who plays it is a vibraphonist. Okay but this is Marimba and Stewart. Copeland was playing it. That's all we need to know Marimba St- We'll call him to my utmost for this episode Yeah so Oakland. Drummer extraordinaire indeed One of my favorite songs. Yeah I I love to good good stuff. Yeah and UH information about sting in his angst when I was researching the song. Thanks makes for great songwriting. So I guess he wrote the Song He after he had separated from his first wife who I met her. She was an actress. Francis Tumblety so funny. I never realized he was married previously. I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I always feel like trudy was always there. Yeah because she was well she's the most visible more visible. I think so. Yeah maybe in the Solo Career. I guess because I don't know maybe synchronous. And when he became like a pop culture icon. He started learning a little bit about staying in that. And then of course you hear about Trudy so I didn't realize is is. Yeah yeah which is most rockstars. This is wife two point. Oh what you get when you're rockstar upgrade. I believe they're a good fit. Apparently they're still together right. Yeah yeah they Yeah so he. He wrote it after he split with his first wife and he wasn't getting along with Stewart and Andy and he just he said he conjured up symbol of pain and related them to my soul. A black spot on the sun struck me as being a very painful image. That's a lot of things that are painful in this song. Yeah that's how you write a song. Make a list. And he is the King of pain make poetic he make it melodic instant hint. That's see that's how you write a song. Love this Song Oak and I'm sure you're aware of the cover songs you like. The you've heard allows more sets version of it now. You're kidding. I must have heard it from her. Unplug session Oh yeah yeah yeah. Yes from nineteen ninety nine. She did an MTV unplugged. Sure I know I love that but I don't remember the song from it. Oh my favorite version of this is Is Lady Gaga does a duet with sting for his sixtieth birthday She kills it. Kills Everything Out? Some she spectacular. I think lance is a little too sleepy for me that Virgin Lady Gaga and staying together. It was. It's it's pretty cool. I could even sting like near the end of it. He gives her a look. Like Oh my God who are you this is? It's pretty amazing. Voices are great together to. Yeah it's really it's really good. I would prefer to post version of a lances. Start my my apologies to Atlanta's apology. Because we know we love Atlantis when you bow down to Atlanta while I do. I mean unplugged. It's it's more you're supposed to be lucky. And this was a birthday celebration. So Lady Lady Gaga just goes nuts on it. She shines yes she does we shine. It's just new song too stupid love. Yes yeah if you love the eighties. You're GonNa love stupid love yet. I do. Okay well I'm sure you love this. Aw upon first hearing right yeah I guess. If you'RE GONNA post any of the other versions you should also post the weird Al King of Suede. Who's really good at selling swayed products? Home I gosh. Did you see weird? Al recently tweeted that. He's he's tweet was no. I am not going to do a song. Called my corona. Yes is national treasure so king of Suede? I don't even know that one. But maybe we'll we'll do. We'll do a couple. I guess there you go to songs from LEERED L. Let's move on to number sixteen. We have the Culture Club. I'll tumble four. Ya The number four wonder why they use the number four because it was cool in because fourth there were four members of Culture Club. You really think was it Prints thing I dunno just more fun. Yeah maybe I mean following princess but although they certainly had more songs on the chart than than Prince did at that time the K rock chart true Tell me they had five. Yes they had five. The single was released. It was released only in North America number. Nine Culture Club was the first band to have three top ten singles from a debut album since the Beatles how he doesn't Culture Club here that in the same sentence you do I mean now I actually think bieber recently broke some some other type of Beatles record so yeah I mean that's exactly the younger generation. The older generation kind of shakes their head. But it is what it is. We'll have to credit him where we're cringes do. Justin Bieber yes indeed Okay so this I'll tumble four you. We've this is the Third Culture Club Song we've talked about. Is this on the updated list? The fact that you're asking tells me it is not correct. It is not on the updated list. But do you like the Sun. Do I like this. Yes there's nothing not to like about Culture Club are yes. I two three records and they're all great. You know who danced in this video No I watched the video. It's fine it's like. They're they're performing at an audition or something and there's a lot of acrobatics and they're just being silly in the video. It's it's fun smiling. Boy George just dancing around times and who is who is in. So you didn't recognize a preteen. Naomi Campbell are really yeah. Oh that's awesome appre crazy. Nail Diomi Campbell. Maybe she still had not still. Maybe she had a a happy kind disposition. Eighteen okay are we'll go along with that. Oh that's interesting. Get to know we have to go back and look for Miami Campbell much like Nicole Kidman in Pat. Wilson's Bob girl made her debut as a teen. That's okay so that's a good start for music videos. I mean if you're an actress or actor trying to get into the Industry Courtney Cox Courtney Cox good call. That was a good one all right. Let's move up to number fifteen. We have madness. Our House high conic. Yeah touring again. Yeah well as many as many as bans are. I know this small US tour. They're playing Boston New York. La They're playing the PUNK Rock Bowling and Music Festival in Vegas and they're doing two nights in Oakland. And that is it. And then they're they're leaving the states and touring elsewhere so if you're in those areas go go check him out there. Playing with English Beaten Mighty Mighty Boston's bench. That would be a really fun. Show this'll be at the Greek in. May so I was thinking of the punk festival but the Greek theater is probably better. Yeah low close. You're just always looking for an excuse to get the Vegas actually. I might prefer the Greek. That's a toss up. I love the Greek theater. I love going prefer grunt the Greek. Yeah yeah this is their only top ten hit in the US. That's Yeah I know it's crazy. They were huge in the UK between nineteen eighty and nineteen ninety-six madness spent two hundred and fourteen weeks on the UK singles charts. Ub Forty shared the same number of weeks the largest for any group in that decade. But over a longer period so like this seven year period between eighty and eighty six madness was mad this for madness where you mad for madness. I remember I mean it was my first show that went with friends. I saw they opened up for Bowie. There was It was you know Bowie go-goes and math and that was that was a good good. Good good show year was that I was eighty. Three timber. Eighty-three September. I WANNA say September ninth. Nineteen eighty-three when I saw I saw Bowie go-goes than this and of course it stuck with me because I still remember the date. That's great that's some show was a good time at Anaheim stadium. That's a big show. Big Show good good stuff we were. We were so naive. Oh well we'll get there early. Lay out a blanket. Watched the show. Because that's what you do with your parents you. You sat on the grass at a park. And you watch the band and so we laid out a blanket and waited for madness to come on the first band and as soon as they came on. Evan came rushing forward. And we're just sitting there on what the what the what what what we have to push for it. So we packed up her stuff. We push board and stood up the rest of the night if you don't if you don't have any experience with that that was very fine. I love that madness. Were huge as I mentioned. They had fifteen singles reach the UK top ten include one-stop step beyond baggy trousers. It must be Love House. Define our initial tagline was we talked about eighty s music and beyond and that's I got that from Atlanta one step beyond madness. Yeah so a great great stuff and I as I went on their website. I are you saw that. They have a book out about their life. It's it's called Before we was we came out last year. It's coming out in paperback in April. And then she you can listen to it on audible. You could sponsor shall to our sponsor a yeah. So that's I think that would be kind of fun book to read. Yeah I think you're right. Probably an interesting life for sure they live. The life is starting from their humble upbringing to. I'm sure there's I'm sure there's a lot of great stories there so That's something to look up what you've found the story. Maybe this story was included this First of all. You know the the the singer's name suggs yes? Yes of course was real name. Yes Graham McPherson. That's his real name but he was a cooler sex's much better. I wonder I was just trying to look where it came from. So the this was used in a twenty seven commercial in the UK for bird's eye fish fingers which I'm guessing is like fish sticks. Okay and he was in it so I was in the commercial. He sitting with family at teatime and the daughter studying for for her school exams and asks suggs where Omega three can be found. He offers the answer of bird's eye fish fingers suggs knows all is multifaceted. Thank goodness suggs. Was there to to help this poor girl out. You can use my song as long as I can be. In the commercial in the early `oughts they had A music much like Abba or you know. They had one of their musical based on the music of of madness and it was called our house and it ran the in London's west end from two thousand to two thousand August of two thousand and three you can You can watch a video of it. They have a DVD recording of in case. You Ever WanNa see the the jukebox story of at this might be fun. That would be very fine and we can pop. Open some madness brewing. If some madness. Bruce if you want to There's the gladness the craft lager night boat is the London porter and love. Struck is the premium Amber Ale. And then it would go good with fish finger so I got some fish fingers. Get some beer. We'll watch the madness movie musical. We gotTA GO. We gotta go of all fired up for the show. They're coming in May. Let's go good times eight all right. So is this still on the list. After after we've gone off on that yes it's moved up. Two spots and number thirteen madness could never non analyst. Okay I agree. let's move onto number fourteen. We have you to New Year's Day yes from war. This was the first time I ever saw them. Was the war tour at the sports arena. Yeah that was good times. Great Times as I was Reading about this I I knew it was about war. Kind of never really. It reads more like a like a love song as that's not uncommon for for songs. We've talked about this songs that about war that sound like love songs but songs that have other meanings but can always be interpreted as love song right when you read the lyrics and you you know when you go through the chorus. It's of course I wanna be with you night and day. Nothing changes on New Year's Day. I mean Sir you would look once you love to hear that you know someone say that to you. WanNa be with you daily. Well does consider this a love song while it is about war. It deals with the struggle for love. Yeah so I guess I mean I mean even though the war part where I mean it says under a blood Red Sky. A crowd has gathered in black and white. Maybe they're at a wedding arms entwined the chosen few newspaper says says it's like you know we made an announcement we're getting married. I really what's true? Is they announced in Polin that they would abolish martial law? A New Year's Day in one thousand nine hundred I understand. But it's talk to me Say It's true it's true we can break through torn into. We can be one you know. Maybe we broke up but we can be one you know. He's fighting for his love. Yeah I know I definitely sounds like a love song. Certainly in the way people sing it in in concert of course sounds more like a love song. Yes in concert. It's uniting everybody together and I still. My favorite part is watching edge. Plays the keyboards. And then all of a sudden he pulls out the guitar and does his Guitar Solo. That's always one of my favorite parts of youtube shells. Suddenly he's broken through from the shackles of being strapped to the keyboard. And he's got the he's got the guitar now and he steps out onto the solo edge move does yes and you know of course puts his arm around rock and roll here. We are reenacting a Youtube concert pretty much. That is how that goes and this was their first single here. Which seems obvious. Yeah I did not realize this. The B. Side of New Year's Day is a song called treasure. Whatever happened to Pete? The chop this is a song that has never been performed live yet. It's on the B side of one of the most connex. I have never heard. That's and now I I'm I'm going to post it On our website because I have never heard the song I forgot to look it up when. I'm sure someone has posted it on Youtube. Whatever happened to Pete the chop? That's a very good question. I don't know stay tuned. We'll find out for you. Did you watch you remember the video? Yeah remember them on horseback? Do that was Four Swedish teenage girls. That was not the band. That's funny. They they actually. I read that they plan to shoot the video in Sweden but when the mountains and snow in the mountains and the snow they hoped for didn't materialize. They tried Norway but they're still Swedish. They must have hired the Swedish girls in anticipation of that now is he has filmed in the dead of Swedish winter and Bano refused to wear any headgear. Despite the cold weather he had a lot of trouble mouthing the lyrics but you know all in the name of rock and roll so next time you see the video on horseback just no. It's not the boys yes? It's for for teenage Swedish girls. Yeah very rock and roll in one thousand nine hundred eighty three. U2's New Year's Day was at number fourteen in the updated. K Rock rock of the eighties list from two thousand eighteen. Let's say it is now number twelve now the talking heads back in back in one thousand nine hundred three the talking heads. Song burning down. The house was number thirteen in this current list. They are now at number eleven. A song succeeds is as burning down the House Hog. It's good good stuff. This is Great Steph. Did you watch David Byrne on? Snl PHANOM CA few weeks ago. Amazing Oh my God. Right was a fabulous performance. Yeah he's been doing that for a while. Now I know he toured with this American Utopia group. Yeah and he's taking it to Broadway. I think it's in the fall. It's coming back to To New York on Broadway and Yeah just a lot of choreography. Going on it's a wonderful. It's so compelling it's just God and he looks like they all look like they're having such a great time and he so he. I mean obviously always a great perform. I mean just an interesting compelling performer. But this performance was so gray. He's always been like that creating this US things visually about the music. It's not just an artist. Yeah it's not just the playing of the songs he wants to create some sort of visual statement to the songs as playing and succeeds amazingly. Well he was yeah. Snl What he played was once in a lifetime and Toe Jam and toe. Jam is a song by a band called the Brighton. Port Authority. I think he he did that with dizzy. Rascal that was listed at number fourteen on Rolling Stone Magazine's top one hundred songs of two thousand eight. So case you were wondering toe. Jam was I didn't know toe jam football from come together remember that But anyway but now we're talking about burning down the house another great visual song even without a video. I mean it's still phenomenal. And this this was a song that actually may down to top ten charts and the US it. Hit number nine Yeah Great Song burning down the house. He's still love it. Oh yeah but I love it. I have to say I will go back and revisit so much after seeing that performance I just I hadn't paid. I mean I like him I'm You know I was always a moderate fan. But seeing that makes me just want to go back and This fall should go to New York and go see the American Utopia. Maybe oh well. Yeah good idea. Yeah it's this. This song got his name burning down the house. Yeah how did it get name so Chris Chris France Drummer? Yes he was He likes funk and it was a p funk show in New York that that he when he heard the crowd Yelling to the band to burn down the house he got the idea from the sun. Tear the roof off the sucker. Yeah Yeah you know. Well that's that's cool so you got like a you get inspired title like okay. We need a song called burn. Burn down the house where he came. That's great three hundred sixty five degrees burning down the house okay. So let's move onto number twelve. This is David Bowie's modern love. Yes it is back in the day it was number twelve now it has been pushed back to number nineteen because because why because Culture Club can't have all the songs and they took off. I think to Philip Culture Club's slots culture club get all these songs and we only get. Well we had Let's dance also. Yes they couldn't put five culture club songs on there so I guess I don't know so now it's number one on the updated list. They will always modern. Love is at number nineteen. Okay fine enlisted in the top twenty. He deserves to be children's writer. Tweeted out how to make it as a writer. Follow these simple rules. No one to go out and get things done at that where this came from. No but this is you know it's simple rules. This is what you follow the Bowie rules. You WanNa go out no Wednesday in and take care of business. Oh so this was written after modern. Love was written and I thought you were saying that David Bowie was inspired by these. This writer was inspired by Bowie's words of yes. Stay in get things done. He said this is about the struggle to find solace in love and religion explaining how he remained a force in pop music for so many years. He sings it's not really work is just the power to Charm C. You just throw out a lyric and it works. He can throw it makes it makes it sound simple but yeah. It's so such a kick off the album. Stevie Ray Vaughan Guitar and Eric Check check. Check Check Object Lovett. Yeah that's when you knew you were in for something special just here in that guitar. Only kicks in good stuff. Let's end this episode with number eleven. Guess what Culture Club. And they're on the charts still. This is the one song. It's still on the charts and it's their debut. Do you really want to hurt me? Other debut the first song that actually became a hit. I think they released a couple songs before. Then this is the one that struck and this is yeah. Do you really want to hurt me by Culture Club? It's it's a classic Torch Song it's just. It's it's brilliant. Yes do do you really believe I mean he. I guess he admitted it. That was about as relationship John Moss. Okay that with the drummer was it or was it about all his former lovers at a now he. He's probably said multiple multiple responses. I choose to believe it's about the bandmate. Do you remember the video? Of course that was our first two. Yeah always remember. He had had his wearing a shirt with With Hebrew on it. How remember it said Tar boot a Gouda? What does it mean it? Means Culture and Association in grammatically Incorrect Order But Culture Association Culture Club. Okay I get that. So this was the band's first number one in the UK It reached number two in the US. And I believe it was jump that prevented Culture Club from reaching the number one spot. Is that right or belief. So wow yeah I'm not sure how I feel about that. Okay still both Still Classic Socks It did hit number one in twenty three countries. Twenty-three countries can't list them but you don't need to twenty-three is Numbers too big to ignore. This was the one song that K rock decided to keep on their updated K. Rocklin number eleven all right and we will end this episode. Next week we will. We will end our look in one thousand nine hundred three the end. Yeah so that's exciting that we get here we are here.

And it's coming next week Portland's -i her plane got delayed. Do you want to know why I'll tell you it's because the indicator wasn't working get together and fix your indicators planes. I'm talking to all of you for goodness sakes. Anyway, next week. We will get a full episode devoted to the superstar, shakeup and Lindsay's New York. Wrestling adventures, we're gonna talk about g one we're going to see what it was like live being blinded during the styles. Randy Orton match getting all of that next week. But for now, let's start this week show. Aw. There's no perfect wrestling. Dad? This is. Ties. Ties. Hello. Was way too. Welcome to the fights. The show that discusses wrestling with sincerity and delivery it deserves. I'm so happy on the how damn show Lublin at. I'm joined today by my fellow members of the nation of conversation. Danielle Radford also known as a pod star up pod stir. Thank you having me as always because I'm also host here. Why do I say that? I'm the worst. Stop it. I'm tired. We have a special guest with us. The real lead singer of the band, quiet riot. It's disturbing James Durbin. Welcome to tights and fights. I I was wondering what you were going to give me. I I really liked that you you're good with that was that was I'm good. Okay. Yes. Yes. I thought maybe I would be, you know, Brooklyn's favorite son, Durban Corbin. But we wouldn't do that to you never never. We don't do that too. Land is a friend is a friend. Indeed, you've been listening to the show for a while. You've been a wrestling fan for a long time to tell us a little bit about that. Yeah. Yeah. Definitely. I mean wrestling is the way I found out about quiet riot. Wrestling is the way I discovered that. I could be myself beyond my diagnosis or diagnostics, or whatever it is. When I was ten years old. I was diagnosed with threat syndrome and Oscars, which is high functioning autism. And so I was very much teased for my big years. I bleached my hair. I I wore weird shirts. I wear short-sleeved shirts long sleeve shirts under short sleeve shirts. And or is it long sleeve shirts under short shirts under long six shirts. That's what it was. And I did that. I mean, I definitely did that. Yeah. Yeah. It was like the thermal. And then like the the bad Hawaiian shirt with like anime characters on. Jacket and the best giant coup. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Like, your mom dressed you with your cousins old clothes. That's me. And and so that was me, but I was comfortable with who. I was. But you know, when you're comfortable with who you are. And your unique nece everybody the world society is taught to have a problem with that. And so everybody had a problem with it. And so I was very bullied very teased and for the longest time, and I was aware of wrestling. I knew kids that war wrestling shirts, and you know, but every time I felt like I was flipping through channels. And I saw that I felt like I wasn't supposed to watch. It felt like my God fearing household like no, you're not supposed to watch this brand panties matches and first blood matches and cage matches and the devil. And you know, everything and so who relate to that. Yes. Yes. Yes. Preach, preach. So that was me. But I actually just looked the first match. I remember seeing was a raw on September. Twenty ninth two thousand three was. Rob van dam? My first favorite wrestler versus Christian in a ladder match for the in her continental championship. That was the very first match. I saw flipping through channels. I had a bad day at school. I was looking for an outlet. And and that's what I found. And wrestling was I found that wrestling was this escape that, you know, even though people were unique even though they were strange or abnormal or different like that was their character that they were portraying, and then they could take it off or that was their character in real life. And they were just like, you know, putting it on a pedestal, and and living, you know, and like making it that was their thing. And so I found these real life superheroes that I could be like, you know, what? Well, look at them. They're doing it. Why can't I do it? And so I did a lot of musical theater and that also really helped in my portrayal of characters. Oh my God. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. I have to put a pin in this. You have to tell me what you did. And what character you were? Sorry. We sometimes we really delve into musical theatre on the show as of now. I absolutely need to know. What musical theater do you did? And what character you work second? Okay. So my first. Main like in high school when I started to really like try to figure myself out like I used to walk around like dresses, the undertaker. I carried a briefcase I was chubby kid. I you know, I was very very strained. And so I got cast as model the Taylor in fiddler on the roof. Then after that was my big one was my big coming out. One was was Danny in grease and then. You know, that was like, you know, oh, I can be this. You know, I can be this asshole kind of guy. And like I got this chip on my shoulder, which I do not like, I'm not a confident cocky person. But I like I played this like Randy Orton like early like two thousand four like just a dick Randy Orton and just like, you know, and just that kind of character in a sense. And then it wasn't until. A later age where I had a drama teacher. Tell me, you know. I know you watch wrestling. I know you do that. I know that that's like your thing. So you see those characters portraying that on TV and because she noticed that. There was a difference between what is portraying on stage who was very comfortable very confident person and outgoing to when I leave the stage. And I was you know, I was a shell of what I was on stage. And so she said, you know, you should practice portrait figuring out the character that you want to be your human character, your real life character, and you can take what you do on stage with how you act, and you can bring that to your actual life. And so that's really what got me out of feeling like I was just meant to be the threats kid the autistic kid and feel disconnected from the world around me to portraying a character. And so I doubt myself crazy James, and my friends I'll start call me crazy James people around just new crazy James James is just James, but crazy James. Is like why is he crazy and just like because I stopped giving a fuck about what everybody thought me. And if they wanted to change me then that was their problem. But I am me. And if they got a problem with it, then they got to put up with it. So I did that and wrestling is know that was wrestling. I used it on American idol. It got me to meet so many different people. They did a backstage segment on idol in the idol mansion where we were all wrestling. And and I said I said something like HOGAN, eat your heart out because I'm crazy James. And I am awesome. And then the next night next night. They brought out Cogan to tell me that I was going through to the next round. And then he, you know, stiff shot Ryan Seacrest and throw them in the crowd and the next day after that Chris Jericho shows up at idle because he's dancing with the stars. Which is in the same building as idle, and he shows up, and we become friends, and he takes me out to dinner with him in the MS MAURICE, and we're all sharing desert together with three spoons and one plate. You know? It's just like the craziest stuff like one thing after the next like that's because of wrestling. That's because wrestling that's because wrestling, and then how I found out about tights and fights is I was watching Mike eagle getting Doug with high and talk about this new this new wrestling podcast. I'm on. I was like wrestling high wrestling high. Okay, I'm in, you know. You know? And and I've been I've been listening to tights and fights for I don't know. I think since your first episode, so wow, no. Yeah. How long have you been doing gosh? Jillions two and a half years two and a half post really close to three years at this point. I think three years. Yeah. Wow. I think rain with us. Of course, I love you guys will now we get to talk about the the the biggest show of the year. This is exciting. We survived wrestling's biggest weekend. We're going to get our favorite moments from takeover wrestlemainia and WWE's weekly shows. Let's start with the main event of takeover. Johnny gargano. Finally, standing tall as annex t champion over Adam Cole, baby. Here's a clip. Finally, it's like an odd culmination to that story and then chop is out there on stage with him. But I mean is there there's nobody better to carry the next brand right now, right? I mean, no, he's he is the guy, and you know. You can have all of these arguments about whether the music should have changed like three or four times. And you know, there's been so much that's happened with this character. But he's got gone. Oh, I want him to win. I like James you get a chance to see it. I definitely did. My favorite part was every once in a while. I mean, other than the match every once in a while more Manala would say the chubby at your old from Cleveland. And my son is watching with me who was nine and a half. And and he's like did he just sees a chubby eight-year-old from Cleveland? And then he said it again, and he's like did did he is he saying he's chubby eight-year-old from Cleveland? He doesn't look it. But that that match my son doesn't watch wrestling with me. So that was like we were supposed to play a computer game. And he's sitting there. He's like it's time to play the whoa. Was that you know. So it was it was very cool. It was we actually bonded over that. And it was just so intense. And and I kept telling them this is wrestling. This is like they're telling a story. It's like a dance. It's a story. Look other telling the story always like looking at me like I'm nuts. The making of a Mark in real time. That's. That's so great. Well, said the other men's singles titles defended that night were velveteen dream retaining the North American title against Matt riddle and Walter ending Pete's done six hundred eighty five day, Wayne as k champion. I thought it was a killer match. I think Walter is Walters a fucking monster. So I don't know who they're going to get from that brand to to challenge him. I heard an interesting numbers numbers thing about about Pete done that he was like, the fifth longest reigning champion in WWE history. Oh, wow. Yeah. It's it's a I forget what the who else. Was there? It was like Pedro Morales HOGAN, Bruno San Martinos. Gotta be up there. Right. Brew Bruno was on there twice. Yeah. And then I forget one other guy and then and then Pete. So they've definitely put you know, they've put stock into the guy. So it'll be interesting to see like, okay. Because he's obviously, he's hunters boy. US tidal pitcher or intercontinental title picture? Can you imagine like Pete Dunne versus a MO Jo for the US title run? Please don't do that to my heart like calm lawn. I would love that Pete just got to keep something in his mouth. So yeah, you know, that's part of the look, you know, that's the whole thing if he comes out without a belt in his mouth, like even if it's just like something hanging from his lips. You know, it's it's not gonna look like his, you know, his vital characteristics of him. Yes. The keep winning belts because he's quitting smoking. Yeah. Ships you use it like chanting. Chantik ships. Do you think of the right choice to have Riddell loose clean this early on? When they sorta spent time stabbing how dominant give caso over. Yeah. Like him and his bare feet and his weird milk drink. He's so over that. I think that it's fine right now they are getting so poached, and we'll talk about it. They're getting so poached for people if feels like a lot of people are spending less time in an x t really establishing very strong people holding championships. It feels like people are in and then they're out. And so Matt riddle? He has time or he'll be moved to the main roster who knows but right now, they really need to invest in velveteen dream because they are losing people, right and left. Yeah. He does seem like the kind of keep around at what point James if your fantasy booking. How long would you keep a guy like velveteen dream in an XT before you go? He doesn't need anything else. Here. We need to move them up to the main roster. How much more time do you think he needs? I mean, I could definitely see them doing it. You know, two months ago when he's like got real steam behind him. I feel like the longer you keep them in an x t the more you have to build that steam up around him and the thing with with Matt see I don't think Matt riddles ready to go to the main roster. I'm not invested in Matt riddle. I watch it. And I'm I don't care yet. They haven't really given me a reason to care about Matt riddle yet they're doing that thing that they do with a lot of guys from the Indies where they assume that you care about them because they were on the Indies without actually building them. It gets very frustrating. If you point to the people who've come up from annexed to the main roster, they even treat it that way. When people just come up to w w you know, everything they did in annex, t we assume you also watch that. So we don't have to invest anything in them. And then those people get lost in the shuffle. I mean Tyler breeze before Brazilan go was lost in the shuffle. He had a really good character. He works. Really? Well, but there was almost no investment in it. They just brought him in. And assumed you knew who he was and they didn't really need to establish anything. That's a mistake. Hopefully there I mean without without cer- black and ricochet they didn't really build them up much. But they've worked there working all the time in high profile matches. So now, the audience is invested in them at a certain point, though, you're going to need you are going to need a little bit more character development. I think other than candles and flips not that they can't do it smoke smoke candles, flips and cats music and the cats and music. That's true. All right, fine. T he doesn't. No one is on his best big teeth. No. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Right. Right. Right. Yeah. Big teeth. Yeah. But Satan, Satan, Satan himself are dark prints like now, we're at a time, even Lacey Evans, and I know we'll get to that a little bit. They've at least done something to raise some intrigue. Even though we've been kind of a baby. And why does she shop in the retro section of mock law? I mean, it's it's true. And at first you just go why why is this happening, and then it keeps happening over and over again. I think it that repetition does kinda work to go. All right, one of they to pull the trigger. What trigger they gonna pull? And then when they do. And and you see the person who spent parading around at random said of reprogram with Becky Lynch. Did you go at least they're trying to build something? And they're gonna take a big shot. Yeah. Right. At least they've yeah. They've been having her on you, you know, that she's going to be involved somehow in something. Let's let's continue to talk about the women though. Shayna Baseler ler. Still stands alone atop the next he women's mountain who beat Bianca air. You'll sure I and Kyrie's sane first of all I think Shadab as Lert has been ready for the main roster for some time. But you like it's better to have her anchor the women's division. And that's what I'm saying is like there's not an exte- for a very long time has not been just a training ground where you bring people in the new bring him up to the main roster. It is its own brand. And sometimes it feels like they respect that. And sometimes it feels like they do not keeping chain of basil there while other people start getting rubs and start getting ready to take her place. Entreating annex t like a real show is one hundred percent what they need to be doing. Sure. And so I don't mind that she hasn't been brought up that's the way it should be. And that's why I get so frustrated with a lot of these call ups not because I don't want them to go to the main roster and make big money. But because I feel like I have seen them. Call folks up with no plan other than their popular exte-. Okay. Cool. Not all of us have twelve hours to devote to wrestling a week. Yes. I do not every. Sometimes you you have the time to establish that sometimes he don't. But I think the other important pieces that annexed he's developmental brand. At a certain point you have to push the baby birds out of the nest and sometimes that means the division flounders. So I agree shayna basil should stay there to anchor. I also not one hundred percent against them moving her up. And then she'll probably move getting superstar shake getting to maybe maybe not. Maybe maybe we don't know. She sells the title bring the title whether they used to do that. And I actually really liked that as a bridge where the NFC champion. They did that with Kevin Owens that was Sasha banks where the NFC champion would would be a bridge to both brands and then dropped the title move up. And by that time, the main roster audience has gotten to know who they are. And maybe gotten interested enough to go with what did they do in annexed t it's a slippery slope? I mean, how what you mentioned about it being the nest and sometimes you've got to leave to the outside world. But the issue with an x t is sometimes that product of the nest is greater than the outs. World. It's like you still live with your parents, and you get fed and you get a roof over your head, and you can do whatever the fuck you want, and you can come home and everything is figured out for you. You know, and it's like you don't wanna leave. It's like, I don't know. It's it's I feel like there comes a time. When St. when the fans are going to want an x t to maintain its its its ownership of its brand because they're invested in those fans are invested in that certain style and the time that the that the athletes get to put on that type of match, and it's you know, it's the same thing with like Shinsegei nakimora coming in or Oscar or Yoshua Rier kyri San is like another thing is like they keep taking these phenomenal wrestlers from Japan and bringing them in and they do great things with them. And then exte-, but as soon as they're in the main roster. It's like we saw this what fifteen years ten twelve years ago with Yoshi Tatsu big hype that he's coming in. And then they absolutely do nothing with them. They kill their their hype. You know, and it's I don't know. I'm I'm have a tough time with the whole. Roster shakeup, and all this didn't they mentioned that they were going to mix in an x t with the Rosser shakeup. So would that mean that they're sending people from the main roster back to St. that has been thrown out there a lot? I don't mind it. I you know, what send breeze and go down there to do. And they used to do more of that too. Where you would have someone, you know, I believe it was the ascension when they ascended went back and did a few matches back. There was there for a while. There were few people who would kind of go in between. I I don't think that that's a bad thing. I would rather. Honestly, like, I said make it people who yes, you will see them on the main roster have them bounce in between obviously not on every day. But you know, annexed t tapes in advance. So whatever have them bouncing between the two, and then that way, the main roster gets used to them might be interested in what they're doing and exte-, and it also, you know, there's still a good foundation there, and yeah, if they want to bring a couple of people back I could. Have a lot of people. Way too who need who either need to or would love to go back to. Until they kind of find their footing again. I don't mind it. Right. It's kind of like a free agency. We had Johnson and going from smackdown. A raw showing up wherever he wanted. Like, if there was a way to give that to, you know, undisputed era, for instance, like they're gonna show up here and they're going to fuck shit up. They're gonna show up here. They're going to fuck shit up. Where are they going next? They're going to go back to annex t you never know really where they're gonna go especially if there's there's a surprise. Yeah. Exactly. And that's a great way to hook in other teams and groups to come after them because so then they're going out. You're sending them out like a fishing hook to bring people in. That's the women's tag team championship is supposed to be right. Lars Sullivan from t has finally made his debut showing up on raw and smackdown to beat up Kurt angle in the hardy, boys respectively. I saw great me before I hopped onto do this. And it showed us Nikki holding the baby before he punted into the crowd. And instead, this is him all grown up. Oh, what a great please make that the story line. Oh for goodness sake. It turns out it was his fault. The tombs day in the original DC comics, where you just keep beating up a baby until he turns into rocks, Florida does like dark side a little bit are seed.

I'm how Lebanon I'm joined today by and James Durbin. Yes, it's WWE's most important night of the year. All right. Let's deal with the ship. It was sugar straightaway. Beginning of the show. I see Alexa, bliss come out and says, I'll give you wrestlemainia moat. When I snap my fingers, and I under my breath said please be the rock, please be the rock. Please be the rock. It was not the rock Danielle. Go ahead. Alexa, didn't deserve that. Now forever. She will be. Whatever you may feel of her now forever. There are there's videos of her flex in with a racist tie. You guys know how I feel about him. Fuck that dude. It's fuck HOGAN forever. And I don't care. I had people tweeting me like, oh, well biggies said he talked to him tight. I love big. I don't know what they talked about. I don't know what they said what I do know. My black asks ain't biggie. Biggie can feel however he wants to feel about it. I wasn't in the room. I don't know. What was said? But like beginning don't speak for me. And I know it's maybe the perception of like, oh, if the boys in the back row K within cool one the girl in the front, and I pay my fucking money. Like anyone else does except that don't because I don't do the network. You know, why? Because I don't like HOGAN there's a larger issue here for people out there who who would try to use that defense, which is even if he had issued what anybody felt was a proper apology that puts. That puts the people who felt wrong under no obligation to to not pay hurt or not to feel a certain way about it. At all, you get to decide the person that you are when you think when no one's fucking watching the person that you are he didn't start talking about all the work that he had to do one himself until people were like cancel HOGAN, my childhood is over and then there was a fly over by some planes. Helicopters. That's right. Sorry. It was an awkward fly. It was just so like something was wrong. Yeah. Extra leaned in the patriotism, and I know it's because of fucking all the Saudi Arabia stuff. I didn't know. They're gearing up. I think it was a little weird that they had three performances of America the beautiful when they usually have one, you know, one in the beginning one in the intermission. And then one to close out the show. Everybody had left the stadium next next year is those three versions of America, the beautiful they're all gonna fight. We're going to bring a wreath of Franklin's ghost out. And I did I did like the lady that did it. She is an amazing singer. I was very happy that they brought her out. But it was one of those like why did I bring up this extra black singer? But none of their audience is gonna know everyone's waiting for fucking Florida Georgia line to show up and lake or flow writer to do. A rap version of America, the beautiful, it's fine. I'm interested in that. I would watch that. Yeah. Of course, of course, you I would watch them together flow rider, Georgia line. It's right there. They've done it. No. They've done it. They should swear to God. But somebody has done it. Oh, they should if not them officially somebody has done it. All right. Let's let's get into the actual show. There's so much wrestlemainia this. This was the most wrestlemainia that was ever held. Let's talk about where it ended. Becky Lynch standing tall over Charlotte. And Rhonda as the champion of champions. Here's a clip weight needed on our vipers, Ted. Left shoulders. James? Sold. I would be worth elite. That's because their shoulders. Mania number by the way. Michael's job is to talk professionally and his voice was gone too long vents too long to and yet. This was the conclusion, you know, we call wrestlemainia ice cream Sunday. This was Christmas is Christmas. Right. James? Eighty lots. Just I'm shocked at a fool out here. I hadn't tape us that Mafoud. So I have Christmas. This was the Vermont Stor of ice Christmas will note that the monster is right. No. If you go to a Ben and Jerry's scoop shop and get over monster. They bring you in industrial bucket filled with as much ice cream as anybody has ever never. They put all the toppings on there and say enjoy it. So literally, you get as much as you want of what you want which is what this wrestlemainia was gotten more than I wanted. You got more even more. I got more than I wanted to do you have a little bellyache from all the wrestling. Oh, yeah. Abed? No good sour tummy. I didn't even I didn't even like. I'm even get cronk. And I was like I woke up with a hangover just a wrestling. Hey, get crook. No. There was definitely some tequila involved over here. We had our neighbors Stephen Casey over and they don't watch and only comes out, and they were watching they were. They were into it. But even they can tell like this finish they could tell like that shit was not that didn't happen. Like it was supposed to right. Yeah. Yeah. It was too. It was too sudden there was no build up. There was no big spot before it was just you know, apparently, what reports have said, and what will never here is that it was apparently a botch and people were super cranky about it. But the botch was that Rondo supposed to win. No Becky was always supposed to win. Right. Yeah. Apparently one thing I read was that Becky was opposed to tap, Charlotte. Keep Ron too strong, right? That makes sense. And then there was another thing that, you know, the ref counted to three in the refs should've pulled the count. There was no plan b. You know, because there's only so much planning you can do with Rhonda because she's so green right now. Right. But who knows speculation still a good match match. Yeah. This overall experience though for how long it was. And I didn't watch. I watched the pre showed the next day. So I I cut two and a half hours off right there. I think that's cheating. I did cheap. You have to watch all nine hours of wrestlemainia and bother your wife and disappoint your children. It's just what you have to my son came in the room. He said, wait. This is all we're doing. Just gonna sit here watching wrestling can't think of anything more boring sucks, initially, a Mark for your son. Was name is hunter. Yeah. Oh my God. My poor wife. He's just like, I guess I live in the bedroom right now. I was like no I'll watch had. Anyway, he was like no of this lay down. I can't even this. She's just exhausted. It's Victorian era, which is like just passed me. My fainting couch trends on the fading count. She applauded the lot. It was fine. Let's talk about the the problem with being as long as it was is in the middle of the show. You get you get the highest. Hi, you're gonna get which isn't a combination of Kofi mania. Here's the call. Is fairly. Chair. Credit much cried a whole bunch literally like so Adam Marie from notice. And he doesn't bunch of stuff around town. Like sent me a message of mmediately that was just a picture of him crying. A what about you, James? Did you wind up crying your face off? Oh god. Yes. I mean wrestling has like wrestling in the past two three weeks has caused me so much emotion. It's all been because it Kofi like talking about his family talking about the struggle tuck met at all and just like their relationship of exhibitor and biggie Kofi. It's just like that's those those things that you want in your life. You want friendships like that you want like brotherhood sisterhood. Like, you want that kind of love and people looking out few that way. And then you hear him get on the mic, and you hear him talk to vents in like that. Like, it's a promo. It's wrestling at the end of the day. But that was life. You know that brought like that's that. Reality into the kind of you know, into the whole scripted thing. And it just like seeing that was so like real, you know, it was honest. It was real. It's like that's not what he said on smackdown. This is not supposed to happen. This was not supposed. This was not in the script. And it's just like there's a video my Instagram me to screaming and just at the TV's. All right. Tam? Well, and that is why you are the lead singer, quite right. Yes. True. Yeah. This was like, this is the definition of wrestlemainia moment, like more more. So than anything else. I could ever think of and it's also proof. Yes. This this is a story that was eleven years in the making. But really it is a story that was two months in the making and in two months, they were able to take what what we're lemons of people being hurt and made gold out of it not limited gold liquid pure goals. Mrs it was just a good reminder for me of like there have always been people who've listened to the fans, and you know, the last several years of the booking we didn't like I think that we held even though logically. We understood what happened. Sometimes you can disconnect that from your kind of sense memory of it. And how upset it makes you, and I think we gotta kinda uncouple that. Now that we understand why it happened. And we we're all like, look, However, I might have felt about it at the time. It was for me. I'm from Luma camp of I didn't like the time. It was the right thing to do. I think that we have to start like figuring out how to process that. And get some of that trust back. Maybe it's that same idea right of that I've been trying to adjust to as a as a fan is taking a step back and going. All right. I mad at these three pieces of stained glass instead of seven back and looking at the entire mosaic that create exactly because we again, we don't know everything that happens. We there there could be reasons why we don't always get what we want. They do listen. But sometimes what might be the right thing isn't necessarily what we know is the right thing. Yeah. And I'm trying to uncouple my feelings from that. And I think that that would do some good and maybe give some trust in the company back. But then they bring out fucking HOGAN. So what the fuck do? I know. Well, that was then they then they gave then I'm not uncoupled from that yet fair enough fair enough. I am consciously coupled. Do we think James will start with you that the that the kicking off the show with Brock Lessner getting beaten pretty pretty quickly like a brawl, and then and then a short match by Seth Rollins is that the right way to start the show for you. I definitely think. So I mean, I kind of weighed between what would have been a better one. And that and I feel like that's that's a good one. That's like I feel like that's a big surprise. And that really set the bar, the no pun intended to to just like expect the unexpected. You know, there were after all there were the most title, change and wrestlemainia history. So that really set it. I mean, the pre show really said it with a cruiserweight championship and then the raw tag match, and then both people that won the the battle royals and all that. So it's like that was really like, well, this is really not. I don't know. It's going to change your perception of what you think is going to happen tonight. Yeah. I've I've thought about that too. Is would you look at you know? Well, now that we know for sure they're not gonna put the belt on Kofi because we already got what we wanted from Brock and then. Yeah. And then all of a sudden the iconic when the tag titles at I'm like, hold on let me back that up. This is what I wanted so badly. How is this possible? Did they are they going to find a way to reverse it? But that is a great like it was just there were no really look some matches weren't the best the moa Joe Ramos zero it did its job. But it was very many. But I don't think there was anything where I was super upset by the outcome now and even with the tax Hampton ships because obviously, we know I'm always in the tank for Bailey and Sasha. But like if someone's gonna take them give it to the iconic because I really think that they could be a lot of fun. And in fact, there was a really good. I don't think we're putting things over this week. But there's a really good WWE video of them just going in the back and just making rockstar spud. This is name anymore showed up just like kind of bitch and out rockstar spud and making him be afraid for himself. And that's really fun. They're both good wrestlers. They just don't have them. Do a lot of that. They're both great on the Mike. I, you know, hopefully, we'll get some of those great moments. We got an annex t with them, you know, those moments like I have to let you go alone and do your own thing like those moments of a deeper relationship, not not queer baiting, but a decent relationship. And yeah, I just if it's going to be anyone may be counted from they want it the right way. And they wanted the right goal it. That's how there's a win it. They are the Connex. What was your biggest moment James outside of Kofi mania? What what was something that stood out to you? You know, I actually I really enjoyed the MS and Shane McMahon. Just from like, just like a it's like you. You don't go and see a Michael bay movie for the storyline, right? I didn't watch Bumblebee for the story. Yeah. You know, it's the explosions. It's like, oh, we got a robot. There's space. There's the ocean. There's there's the Santa Cruz beach. Boardwalk guys. This is a great one more. Can you? Okay. Bye. Yup. See in Tokyo, and just how much how much happened in that you that you weren't expecting to happen. Like, MRs dad with the mullet and the mustache and the change repositioning the fists, and then like the other spot where MS knocked him over. I don't know if Shane was supposed to land on top of the golf cart. But then he fucking fell six feet onto his head. And like just like shit like that like what was happening in that match. It was like, of course, like, you know, the people that I'm watching it with that. Do not watch wrestling like, Nope. Chains gonna win chains gonna win. You know, what's going to happen? You know, MS is getting all this offense, and something's going to happen that it happens. But it just like that was great. That was great. That was a moment. Yeah. And a really good finish. I mean, obviously as soon as they get over to like a multilevel camera. Scaffold. Oh, go over the top. I feel bad for the people who were there because I like the styles Randy Orton match. But apparently, nobody gets it because the lights were like there were floodlights on at the state. Like somebody turned him up to one hundred and left them there. Yeah. I saw some of that stuff on Twitter to people were like, I can't I don't know what's happening because there were chance during it that appeared to not be related to the match. I'm thinking this is a good match. These guys are working hard on it's odd that they're not appreciating it and then little did. We know they were all blinded. Did you happen to catch? The augmented reality poo snakes. I love it. Perfect for so many reasons. More PU snakes more postings giving. I got feces full of snakes, don't and they are snakes homes to pay the talk to me. That's good. Happy is this next. The talk to me. Jim johnston. I I had a writing session with Jim Johnson. Once ended up not being a writing session at all. Just ended up being me sitting there and Jim telling me stories and playing me the original versions of songs, and he played me that on his on his old Martin acoustic guitar. Oh, that's amazing. If we do an episode, you just want to come hang. Yes. Please. Please. Please. Okay. I was talking to Jill lied about this before for recording that I'm done with the I was done with the team. And after after he didn't bring it out for Brock listener. Certainly don't think he why wouldn't you just be the demon all the time because he seems to lose a lot of imbalance way. He ever wins. It doesn't seem like when he's done that he comes out the next night exhausted. From having been the demon. He just comes out and wrestles again, right? He's not venom. You know? Yeah. Yeah. So put put that the end of the devil stick on your head and put your makeup on. How do you feel about the demon? I just recently got a fade. And like, I showed the lady a picture of Finn. Ballard showed my wife the picture. The fate. And and and I just love fin Fergal, a love Fargo gonna love Fargo just the guy, you know. And the things that he does for people just I love his Instagram, and, you know, his his shirts and the stuff that he does. But let's like there's a big difference. Like, I don't feel as connected I used to feel connected to the demon. The demon is what brought me defend Ballard. Now, I am more invested in Finn the demon. So it's the same thing with with me how it's like as soon as I find out the demons coming. You don't really need that in that weird video like the edited it, and he's sticking out his tongue, and he's just got a weird looking tongue in like, you know, when when you think of demon intone, you think of gene Simmons long thin skinny little tongue that ends in a point and fans like, you know, like you draw a smiley face like the tongue sticking out emoji. That's looks like, but it's like dreads fabric threads his tennis has dick print fins. Dick is for everybody. Pro wrestling, tease dot com. Fergal fertile. Kurt angle goes out on his back. As is tradition. Be goes out to baron. Corbin logically in storyline. It makes sense. If this was the if this was the baron Corbin that they that they had put the US title on and then won money in the Bank and saw that briefcase. That would also make sense. I like this feels like an attempt to heat him back up. And that that bothers me. I just I I know that we got the angle tour where he wrestled everybody you'd wanna see him wrestle AJ styles. So I don't know that they I can't sit here and go they shouldn't have done with Bancorp. I like Barron Corbin I don't dislike him as much as as it seems like a lot of people do that didn't feel like wrestlemainia me. It's fine. I mean book. Yes, especially when you bring out thug nominee. Seena? Oh, definitely assume that that's going to be what it is. But who knows we don't actually know if Kerr might have said, hey, you know, what I wanna go out the wave at wrestling works. I wanna go out. This is the person I've been having programs with this was the last program. I did I want to honor the way the business works. And I wanna go out. You know, putting this person over we don't know. That's not what he said for me. Yeah. I wanted to be him versus John CENA in his really stupid mid-2000s outfit. But you know. 'cause I very strongly feel like Kirk could have asked for anyone and they would have said, yes. And the company would have said, yes. So if he's picking baron Corbin, it's because that is who he wanted to give the rep to and I can't just respect that. Because that's him showing the utmost respect to the business. Right. Yeah. Unless it's just like he's gonna show up on the like, three months. We'll be back in just a second. Supercar ninety five thousand spy can't six between Kurt angle as the thumb. Oh, please make that up. I loved I just want to mention the here in segment to getting the wrestlemainia MoMA getting a winning in a solid four way tag match. I was just a lot of fun at it was nice to see you. So get a good spot on the card that they deserve the name. They have deserved Sutter first time on the main wrestlemainia show ever that can't be true. No they were on last on last year. But they in fact, this was they actually mentioned there little record. They have this is the third consecutive time. I wanna say consecutive, but at least third time they entered wrestlemanias tacking champions. Yeah. Yeah. Because that's the first time at tactics that can't be the last year now. Yes. 'cause as long as they've been so penitentiary and they've been mega mega over probably on the pre show. But it's still I guess they're still counting it as third time. Yeah. Right. I mean, it counts. Look, it's a, and it's and you know, I think it was Becky Lynn, she said this prior like she didn't care if she was on the pre show that was her wrestlemainia bingo's just as big a deal to her. So I'm sure there's a big deal to them. For me as a fan. I like seeing them in the main show when everybody is already in their seats that to me is the difference. I mad to see like a really straight. Yeah. And it takes a while to load that that place up. I've and it's not like people aren't coming in on purpose. It just takes a while for everybody to get their seats. Earlier matches people really aren't there for you. See all those empty seats and go boy, it's a shame. Everybody's missing this that feels like the story of the cruiserweights all the time, right? It was a great match. You know, all the all the pre show stuff. I thought was was pretty, you know, pretty entertaining. I love CNN curt Hawkins and his two hundred sixty nine match losing streak. Yes. That was I like to guys get a rub. I mean, they've been around for a while, especially Zack, you know. Good dude who sack man, and he broke his streak of winning title. And then losing it the next night. Yes. Exactly. That's that's definitely a good. You know, he's he's a role with that. Yeah. That goodness. Yeah. God. His hair tournament looks good too. Yeah. Yeah. Treatment does look good. I love the the thug. Nominates that moment that that was like another thing. Like, oh, we're getting everything we want. We got the seena back. He talked about turning. He'll think you're untouchable. Yeah. So good performance. Feel like I need to watch it again. Oh, it's had the thought I should go watch. That again, it was. So it was great. It was great in the pert. Like what a great way to give a rub to to Elias who now seems to be destined to face the undertaker at some area some other country that we do not recognize for. We will not see. Yeah. In folder, more Volta country. Yes. Triple h versus Batista, Batista. Also retires on his back gets a nose ring pulled out. I did not like that spot. Not even a little to not like it. No. That was how do you? What did you think? James? What did you do? What did you do? No. It was definitely entertaining. I was very surprised by Batista's ring shape. I thought he looked good. I liked his entrance. I hated triple h is entrance. I thought it was stupid with all the money that they have. And they could not animate a better entrance. Video like can PlayStation one game. Not. I'm like a cool retro thing. You know? It's like, oh, please. Would we're going to make it look real ratio. We're gonna get really for the aim for the millennials today. No. It was like it was just bad. I did not like twisted. Metal. He comes true. We also had a bunch of guest commentators. And this one was cookie monster who I thought did a good job who's your favorite, Jerry? King Lawler is probably my least favorite. I loved him in the attitude era. Yeah, I just it just doesn't work for me in the same way anymore. He might have who who else was that. We had him. We cook. You monster Booker, which okay, I gotta say. Away. Sean, Sean, Sean. Last week come out. And he just basically does the Samoa Joe Ray of Assyria mattress, like thirty seconds. Why didn't they have them do the tag match which just inductive being in a tag team two nights before like they just sit out as well that show. Well, gotta go. He had to sit down, and it didn't even have time to do a single Shuki Ducky quack quack. I mean, what an hour even do. I wonder if Schalke Duckie's people got back to them was like, no seats in the sits forever. Yeah. And we got page page right for the tag match. She looked and sounded the best. I think she has even when she came back and was doing stuff as GM. I thought she was great. I feel like this was the like vest page that that I've seen in a while. She's also, she's amazing. She's so she's always good even when she's not like peak page. She's still miles ahead of everyone else. But this is like, oh, you are page at one hundred percent of your powers. We should all be scared. One hundred percent anybody else that we missed a Roman and drew Roman and drew another good match. Good. Maj was a good match right guy wins. I don't know. Like, those have a bad match. You know, the can't no. But again, the build conditioner versus conditioner talked about this recently is like five will win. Long black hair goatee versus long black hair. Go to those what'll happen leather in spikes, Letheren straps. There was definitely when I was watching it. There was someone who was like not a wrestling fan who was kind of trying to keep up, and it's like. Wants darker wants slightly lighter. But you know, I talked to before like I thought low key. This could be a really good wrestlemainia in terms of match quality. And it was but also so many matches had a short build up, like the McIntyre rains total sense. Like, I I would do the same thing. If I were if I were the person in charge of the book just wasn't enough build up it felt a lot of it felt small even even though is the biggest show of the year. And that was that was. Kind of threw me off. But honestly for me. I don't mind that some of the other matches felt smaller because the big matches felt bigger than they felt in years. There was a lot of build up. I feel like, but it definitely seems like a majority of the matches that were on the card didn't feel like they had as much at stake like Ramos cheerio and Samoa Joe like I love Ramos cheerio, they've released a t shirt that says he's the greatest of all time the goat. I have a Ramos Terio tattoo on my forearm. Like I invested in that guy. But like they didn't give him very much time. It was a squash. It didn't necessarily need to happen. I understand the the need to wanna get all the boys and girls and boys in the men and women on the card to get that paycheck. You know by all means to quote, the great cat Williams. Make that paper, boo. But you. No, I get it. But then on the other hand is like something seem I dunno. It just all comes down to being a Mark versus just being an audience member. You know, it's like personally, I would love to see drew McIntyre go over Roman just because drew needs that heat. He needs to be that monster. They don't have like a monster heel anymore. You know, drew can be that guy. You know? It's now we don't have Brock. I'm sick Obrock. We see large soul of income in the past two nights. And he doesn't seem like he's going to be that guy. So it's like there needs to be somebody filling that role somebody that has that like, I have this over you. I maintain this over you. This is your homecoming and squashed it. It is mine now, you know, something like that. But I mean, really it was a great show. I am fucking exhausted. From watching wrestling like on tour, like I didn't have the network reinstated it and got left free month, you know, and free mind, and I'm gonna catch today. Hell, yeah. And. And you know, it's just it's it was a lot. But I feel like for for the build up and it only happens once a year. So you know, it's a thought in recent years. It was really good. I re washed last year's wrestlemainia on Saturday during a layover in Charlotte. And I was like no that that wasn't that good in comparison. This definitely I feel like it it out did last year's mania. So you're only as good as your last show. I guess her last show of shows in this case. Let with this question. Where does this wrestlemainia rank for everyone all time in the is it like a top is it in the top ten? So here. Here's the thing about how old I am. And ranking I can say what it ranks in the last like five years or offer. But I can't go back that many years. It's too many of the years. I will say that I will put this right under thirty. But like almost like this because thirty was like the first time that we really got that like Daniel, Bryan. Like, just Uber satisfying thing. So in the last five years, but it's it's pretty neck and neck thirty is like, I it's it's a photo finish James. Yeah. I definitely agree. I mean, and when we talk about wrestlemainia, it's like there's so much that goes on that whole entire weekend. So it's like I tend to lump everything together and between next takeover between the hall of fame and all that craziness. That happened between the show of shows. And you know, and then Monday and Tuesday, I feel like it was it was great. You know, something's happened that you weren't expecting some things happen. You didn't want to happen. But like as a fan and the outcome, and like where I'm at currently, I feel satisfied with wrestling that I get to like, you know, put it back away for a couple of months like it was like, I'm satisfied. All right. I'll talk to you later, go. Well, that doesn't for tights and fights we a podcast on the maximum fun network.

Today's Sunday Butterfly Fly pavilion. So my my two children that were in my. There's no museum says a good okay. So we spent the night my two children that were in my house my eight year old and my two and a half year old in both woke up at five twenty. Sure just ready to fucking rock knocking at a put on a pot of coffee talk empty factory where they like tuning up and everything. They had already tuned up. That's you they were ready. They weren't Earth Shattering Chord. When they do their sound checks they play a lot of stooges songs? Go find those on any of their albums. But if you're like a friend of the band you can come early to the ACA. Yeah get a rehearsal tape and you hear Roth Tower so they we're GonNa five twenty. I like by the like. It was six forty and I everything all morning for an hour and twenty minutes morning activities. It had been done so all breakfasting all getting DRA- style my morning activity and the whole nine yards and had had been Dealt with and I looked at the clock and it was six forty five or something and so we went to the flea market. We drove to Long Beach. went to the flea market market. Made it through a couple hours in the flea market. Despite the fact that it turned out that the stroller was in my wife's car which was in the bay area. Anybody got a flea market allowance. Wants or yes so we made it. We made a number of flea market purchases A to do they're negotiating. Okay a hard time numbers you got to walk away. And then that was in Long Beach California in the southern part of Los Angeles and every time I drive to the Long Beach I drive this giant Equestrian Center one thing about Los Angeles. It's so big. That is is true that they're not like there are just as opposed to New York which is small tiny amaury at the the end of it over here distant say pizza but there's like places in Los Angeles decided what they were in one thousand nine hundred eighteen and have I've never flipped shaw. Yes so there's a giant equestrian center in Long Beach can't live and throw it in a cobbler whole horse district uh of Burbank. Hey I don't think we call it that anymore. Okay it's called little Italy. Sorry and so there was. There's this equestrian center this giant tars. And they're beautiful and it's like it's it's a not a fancy one Long Beach is like a middle class. Good it is. I mean it really was is doing their laundry outside hanging them on lines from place to place. I noticed this horse. Babies Sleep In back home before it gets doc feet my mom's horse spaghetti's drawers from a chest of drawers that have been pulled out and the little little better put in there. I remember the old neighborhood. It's hot they sleep out on the fire escape. They a sign for Pony writes So on the way I January anyone sign for pony rides at the flea market. I typed into my thing. Pony rides to make sure that it was legitimate and it was genuine. And it would. Gotcha intended from the GECKO. Oh fantastic. A- task got it was actually when we we got there though the Internet. It's turned out to be Mary J.. Blige Oh yeah right. Well sometimes read it afterward hater. Yeah so you did so flea market Pony Rides Pony Rides Pony Rides Pony so my daughter rejected pony rides immediately upon find me mentioning it then I brought it up and saw the ponies. Yup Oh one hundred percent actually all new. Here's the thing about children. Oh tell me. All new activities rejected out of hand. Right yeah one hundred percent the only way to get a child to do basically anything other than eat ice cream. Yes yes yeah is to or like the main trick that I use is just start doing the thing. In a way that suggests suggests there isn't another choice. Or what can you can you do like I'm enjoying this. You're not allowed to do it sort of thing that makes them jealous or is that too much manipulate ability. I'm going to sit on this grownups. Pony for big kids not babies. I sorry babies can't get on the ponant about when I was has offered to pony when I was a kid to hold up this family that Worked on a farm that we're friends with we went to visit him. What time and they're like? Hey Hey we have a pony for you. Do you want this. Pony farm country now Richmond. Virginia but farm country was very close by and my mom is like from Virginia so she did so the family. The family was my was my aunt. Mardi sure yeah okay And there were like pony and I was like I'm good no thank they're like. Are you sure you're an eight year old girl and I was like no no thank you to your weird offer and they were like we'll come outside and meet the pony girl so you will want this and they're like here it is and there's this huge pony and there were like once again for you and I was like and again no thank you and I'm the I'm entirely early too busy with my studies. Exactly the only child who was like gross. No thank you can you can you can. Yes like a month later pony died. or Oh wow my mom. Tom Said Pony died. Because it didn't have a little girl to love it. Only what your mom didn't say that she did comedian. It's all true. Oh it was like a big dinosaur. No thank you. I don't understand why kids love of horses anyway. Your kid not a horse fan now. How is now? How many horses does your daughter kill? Not just the whole the whole little Rhody right apparatus they all just drop dead and one of the things about my daughter is. There's this whole universe of media about being transgender girl girl and often it's like all about how much like I always knew because I knew I was a princess. And like love stresses and gender. This yeah and everybody got their own rules and God bless God bless those children who figure out that they're transgender means he's in UNICORNS. My daughter is AH basically only likes robots so now. She's into monster movies which gives her something to talk to. Elliot Kaelin about But but yeah so she. She is not interested in any kind of Frilly girly stuff. She likes to wear a dress she likes to wear pretty close but mostly she likes robots robots and stuff so she was not into. She's not into any of these things she's not a horse girl. She doesn't know any horse girls. It's like I feel like it's the little girl version of a gambling addiction. Unexplainable need is very deep in there. Like I can't get around horse. It's just. It's everything once I'm around one and I cannot really do it then I'll quit. Yeah that's it. Yeah yeah I got a good feeling on this one. When you're you're like in Reno outside the casino you just see fifty seven year old man? cantering yeah yeah And drawing pictures of horses I I think that's because the pool so my daughter after after like and hour and a half at the flea mark I brought it up early in the flea market visit later on I brought it up again. She said no again and then she said wait. No I I think yes. Oh which was good because my two and a half year old overheard I knew that my two and a half year old would be down for whatever But the eight year old. I wasn't sure so I down for whatever the AIDS for genie. Wines around guys yoked yeah you you know great. This is this is comes out at five twenty in the morning but right to bed at nine nine writes about it now. toaster sleepy so I knew he had overheard about the pony and he was immediately. Yes I want to ride a pony this this whole time but then I managed to do with the thing is is two and a half year old. You can kind of like talk around it. And then they'll forget it. Yeah so he had forgotten. Yeah Yeah but I I. I knew that she would object so I had tried to avoid him hearing it at all but he overheard it and got into it and then she gave you too hard no and then I had to back out of it and then later I had to kind of corner her with him off to the side and be like. Hey what what happened was I was like. How do you feel about the P. O. N. Y.? And she kept saying words that were not pony. She was like Patty like trying to work out the like all right. She's her. Spelling is not that strong. This isn't actually a pretty advanced spelling task did you go for. Hr Se. No I probably should have probably should've so in the end she. She changed her mind Q.. U. E. S. T. E. R.. I t. see I v I t y equestrian activity I feel about. I'll see you guys are big kids. Did you. Chapter Books Jesse Q. U. S. on Broadway or hurt Cliffs De D.. I C. K.. Jesse so I went to the I. We went into the equestrian center and what was great about it was I mean. Do you have any. Do either of you have any pony ride experience. I'm sure that's I'm sure I could. You hold you ride around in a circle like riding a horse. I'm talking about mostly around in a circle. Now they know so the pony ride situation is generally takes place Cama one time. Oh Shit actually a couple of Times Cup you've multiple times. They switched their spin around in their mouth. The whole time like it's very thread. Tread wear wherever you camel writing the first time it was at the zoo in London. Okay and then also in Egypt. Wow yeah well well and that's the remind me of. It was one in at the zoo because it's the same sort of thing where the animals like. Okay do it. Just get on and on me. I have to Alatha Times. We had done it once before and it was at a pumpkin patch in a target parking lot and that that is the general vibe of most Pony Rides these are essentially carnival folk who lost their pig race in a bat. Ah they still have those rides. You put a quarter in and you're on like an aluminum pony and it just kind of goes. There's an awful speaker ah coming yes okay. So like those Yes but it's not as much of a thing as it used to be. Mostly you've been broken. If I know a place that had those and could support my weight I think I would probably dump a tremendous amount of money and tiny. I got DOC. NOBODY DECIDES QUARTER ELISA. You know that we have one in the front room of this move is does does move to Timer I also have to get in that one I like one ear like on top of so you can make a break for an age scape for the at home listener ours is a rocket ship real one. And if you're a grown up you do kind of have to question to it but this was not that this was a nice fifteen fifteen year old girls who looked like they represented the city of Long Beach. They weren't like those like girls in the little helmet like blond girls girls in little helmets. You know what I'm talking about like with Brady Lake would be in the Olympics jumping horses over little little rivers style. Yeah there's no there. was you know. These were just regular teens from Long Beach do this wake boarding. And they were so and they were so nice everybody. Everybody was so nice it was so chill. There was like a place where you feed alfalfa pellets to a goat Classic and there was my my daughter wrote on a very very nice horse named Mo And my son Rode on a horse named socks and the woman just handed you know around thing to name horse patties. It has well shoes. They wear shoes famously with no socks. Yeah that's true. Maybe they go they go boating. The coast collegiate voting. Look at Osho so if there was a guy you know at Yale with you Always in boating shoes and his friends. I'll call them socks Fox that it'd be it'd be ironic. Yep that's true so I got to lead socks with two and a half year old so the so the teenager. It was like pledging that fraternity to assure something to opponent yeah sure to slash with. He probably didn't have to because he's probably a legacy ticket. Listen this guy backed off autopilot. ALFALFA's what we're all dancing around to the near eighth on the steeplechase take bench. He's reading on the simpsons now for sure. Yeah Oh God this industry. Yeah so I'll check. Hey I'll I'll I'll jack off a pile of Alfalfa to write a freelance episode of Bob's Burgers too late to Jordan. Oh sorry my chances over Yup. UC Santa Cruz Man. Yeah I just jacked off into a bog for nothin' not the shit out of it. You just have to show your student. It for access to the Archives of the grateful dead. Hey cats a positive. That's a positive lost boys. That's true I did get to see filming locations locations from the Nineteen Eighties Vampire Rob lost boy which refers when someone to yes. Now there's two movies that L. got. I'm sure you've you've been there to Santa Cruz. Yeah recently No God of the things that used to be like lost boys here is now like us here. That's what I lost. Boys faded behind attack us. No we're not into you into US search on I I know yeah when I when I when I went and to see us and like they're like we're going to Santa Cruz. I'm like Oh boy. Santa Cruz is being so fucking obnoxious about this. I can tell they're not. They are currently talking about it right now. Right there in logos books and music. Sure all everyone on Ocean Avenue Does that really does that. Caveman on the Gondola at the beach boardwalk who it with his arm around you might.

Yep that's that's what happened when he closed the door this last time certainly doubt this is. We've been dead for a couple of minutes. I think the most unusual part about it Elisa is that you have been grouped with the two of like. We've been working together for Twenty Years Canada and you're our friends like we see you regularly but regularly meaning a couple times a year a few times a year. I I feel like I should be able to write a letter. Make a complaint about this. We have a general sense of mutual respect. Yeah but I mean all of eternity being judged edged with you guys like I don't know I don't exactly know what I'm taking on giving putting in being put in the old joint account especially given all those good works that you've personally. I am a big time. Good worker knitting socks. We learned in the bread. Yeah I need a bunch of socks knit. Some sweaters yeah. I'm a big time knitter. I I left for a few years and I've recently come back to it as a way to pass the time while I watch TV because because of my phone I can't watch TV and you got to ensure what's good Nitin show all of you know what you know what I need it the most to American horror story really Levin. Maybe that's why because that's one of those shows that like a lot of people I know like and like kind of dipped in every time they started a new season. I'm like Oh this one's about roanoke. Try this one and I like a sample it and then I never for like never sticks with it because I'm not knitting. Maybe but also you can't start with Ronak. That's yeah it's about the show you want to start with the first season I can put you. I can give you some a some seasons to skip around okay. Viewing chart or something. Yeah but The first season goes Tau stuff breath. That's the one you WANNA start with. Okay thank you Connie Britton and what's the first thing I should knit if I've never. I've never knitted and I've never watched American horror story. Most people start with a scarf but a scarf takes a a lot of work. Because it's gotta be long so no one likes doing that. So you end up with the dumb short scarf that you hate and won't wear so I say start with a hat. All you need is circular circular needles. And he just go around around around around and then at the very end like you you can kind of like a taper it and make it smaller or You could just like keep away in a sort of drawstring it but either way then you have a hat and you're like I made a thing because you know he likes short scarf. That's what Jay Kay from Jamiroquai started knitting. Oh Yeah Jamiroquai phase myself. Jamiroquai has got it Sir guides things recommend it. It's I think that's the only thing I think we've learned on this a show. It's abandoned not guy. JK is the Guy Jamiroquai the band. Yeah I accidentally went to see them live in concert. And that's when I learned be careful. Houston live in concert. 'CAUSE you'll end up being fan of there's a deep so how so so pre Jamiroquai concert. Yeah you maybe maybe like. That's maybe I'll I could name to did like someone take you look bigger Jamiroquai. My high school boyfriend how I was living in New York. He was like a New Jersey and he had some friend from his college. Dang with him and he was like hey will you go with my friend of this Jamiroquai show and I was like what unlike Jamiroquai he's like. I don't care. He has an extra ticket. I don't want to go with them and I was like okay. Free ticket to a thing. Why not and I went? I loved it I love Jamiroquai. Who else is on the bill on that Jamiroquai show? I don't remember all I remember is being like Holy Shit this rocks. I mean deeper underground. That's a banger that is so I am the soundtrack to Godzilla the Matthew Broderick till you know. That was a pan. Matthew Broderick was a weird weird actor to play. You have to make this city like even smaller already small man. Somebody's stetchered man. That was so I in in high school one of the main things that like one of them. I was not that bad a kid in high school but one of the bad kid things I did is that there was a big like You know there's a big big lake. Amphitheater where like metallica would come to town by and they would play. I think it was all they would play. They weren't just there to like watch shakespeare or something no. Yeah and what Shakespeare in the park. They'd have picnic. Yeah bring a little bottle of wine. A little breeze are a kid co parents. You know like eight o'clock Anderson man there you go. That's metallica talking to their babies. Ah Free Sketch comedy. They're funnier dive become profitable again. Make that video We would like. I think it was called the verizon wireless amphitheater now but I'd meadows or maybe it's something else now anyway it was a big amphitheater. It's like we're like the you arena rock bands with them when they come down. And we've we me. And some of my nuttier friends figured out that we during like the less popular concerts the security was lighter so you could just kind of park somewhere and then kind of go around kind of through the woods and jumped the fence and see stuff so we saw like so. We saw Tom Petty we saw rem like that and then we also because the big concerts. Those were the small metallic. Like a METALLICA. Whatever you know kind of like a you know soundgarden or something but we thought it'd be fucking hilarious? We snuck into Sea Barry Manilow Canelo And you know we were kind of. Guvener is run into Barry Manilow and meet him out in the woods we got caught on so I won't say when he was in writing he didn't want to go on. So when you go on the WIG Berry hello it's me Some of these songs are about my dog. I think I've heard and I still remember when he started playing Copacabana. The place went so fucking wild and Cabana. Getting Ganic Jamiroquai Barry. manilow is backstage. He's too afraid to come on John. And I still like when Copacabana Jacket. All in the woods compound where in someone else's wing me too so that's good. Jesus Lozo Predator cacares right just a license good. This doesn't mean we're sitting in torpedo. No it depends but yeah every time I kinda here Copacabana. I remember that energy and I get jazzed Horny. Copa commanded a ridiculous songs. Most divorced or near divorced MOMS with pools due to right. That's sort of the cliche that I'm seeing in my head and yeah and I think that's why I get along so well with divorce as I was going to say. Do you think that that's because you have roughly the same sexual relationship to a fifty four year old divorced woman or fifty seven year old divorced woman that a fifty seven year old divorced woman has to a sixty five year old homosexual man. Now wait before you answer. Consider consider who in this equation would frequently dance around with a kitty cat. Oh that's me it's everybody it's actually everybody yeah. I think that's the Ven Diagram Middle Jer. That's us that's the sound of a van diagram coming together. Hayes muttering over you my date I am at the cat speaking of speaking of Kitty cats. We got I guess I I was. I got a package. Yeah and get you with all the delivery I no. I opened up a very nice package from amax fun listener. Who sent over some books so nervous? Some nice paperback books that she thought I'd like Like pretty pretty good selection. Yeah I think I have the front of me but I think the name of Zahra so if you're out there thanks for the books. I'm going to give them a read. That sounds like a request and dedication location dedication albeit Zehr a few listening. I'll be at a Kobuk campaign. I the package looks like it was from China and in the package work to cat shirts. Are they shirts. Four cats well they are three xl. So that's a pretty big kitty. But if they're from China they're sizing is usually a little bit smaller. Yeah so I think these were intended for me. Yeah that doesn't make huge at all. No yeah this is a this is a you know The size of a I think a you know a chunk party man could fit into the. It's a profoundly unusual profile. It's an interesting. The sleeves are very short sleeves. I would they say a cat might a cool cat. Hey it's cool print. They do they seem to be somewhere. Does seem to be someone between short and long sleeved shirt sleeves. Have a button cuff that I would say on an adult man would come around the elbow. Yeah Yeah it's like if it's like if somebody put a button on the end of a short sleeve and the catcher like silhouettes. They look like they could be little like ghosts in Miyazaki movies or something is the ad they have little button is. They're very mischievous So yeah so these So if you're listening out there there's no card or anything so if you're listening out there and send the catchers thank. Thank you very much very thoughtful but I actually. They don't quite fit me. The came like deal with the call drop shipped from China. These are something something that someone bought on like raccoon ten global marketplace or or Allie. BABBA You know or possibly possibly from it could be from. What's that thing? Oriental Trading Post where teachers get customer racers to give out his prizes. Could it'd be from a very mysterious little website often according down. Nellie hadn't noticed there before. Ah Looking for a present for your child. On the way back from this business just popped in Yep good yes that was what it was So yeah so and they will turn into remnants silence shirts. I think I wanNA talk about the contest and the second feel like the shirts need more contacts attack. Okay because what's amazing about. This is that they are mystery shirts. These are the most like as soon as as they came out of the package. It's like these shirts of the shirt equivalent of the robot the destroy the West talking robot that we had on Jordan. Jesse go some months ago. These shirts are utterly baffling in every element. Very clear why someone chose them for you. Clearly on the Internet there was a beautiful beautiful picture of a cat shirt. They thought will Jordan loves casher. He loves shirts literally every day. And every day sometimes hard hard time getting out of bed Taco Tuesday a Taco eight fajitas.

Oh that's right castles. The Rookie Castle takes the rookie. I mean it's the same thing then bishop takes young sheldon say stuff though. Okay fine rookie. Shirts turn the shirts I think they can be explained. In one of two ways one is they were designed by gifted designer An artist Cher. They're pretty minimalist in their aesthetic. Two colors one is black on white and one is white on Black Jack. I think that it's possible that they came out of the studio of Mason. Martin Mar Sheila or something somewhere in Belgium. Antwerp is is one possible source. Another sources monkey's paw they were they were designed designed by a person who lives in a non shirt culture and has seen a picture of shirt described to them or shirt described thirty three hole or yeah I can do this. Well it's an four haller. We'll do the whole so we I don't I cannot quite wear these so I thought that'd be a fun giveaway. We haven't done a giveaway in a while. We'll mail these also also.

We talked we Steve Ages talking about that you know that he's going off to film suicide squad but he couldn't tell us what it was at that point right now. It's an all the trades so we can talk about it or Steve Reggie and suicide squad. That's true so he's so he so I think we said that by the time this movie comes Kosovo CGI intensive. He would have been on the show. I think it was five more times. Just because he's a frequent guest. Does this count. As one of the Times. He plays them kind of alligator man. Ice King Shark Yeah. Famous de Ville and King Shark. Everybody's favorite it's lex luther. The joker and of course King Shock. I'm just I don't know why he had to make it personal snow with me.

Banana are caught in it. She did it. Kill a kid nope just a finger the finger okay. Well that's fine. Somebody brought an extra finger Hashtag. Jj Go pet Jordan. Yeah what do you think doesn't give me any changes. I would love to see a change. I think we that's short for Chinchilla I know I know what it does sound like through. We'd probably should say Chinchilla. Chalet war we say or it sounds like some sort of like a slang slang for like old tiny slang for a vagina. Sure Exchange diaper on that Ferret. There was hanging out. There was a couple double lines about changes in that fucking movie. We went to see Jordan. Share the lighthouse. A lot of change talk in the dark they should mermaids change go spoilers Ari sorry come on man the split up a nightmare of a movie we fucking ruled serves. God it was. Would you think Ted Parasites Green felt like some of his other movies. Were like so like. Did you get the metaphor. Did you feel like he knew that. And the fun with it appropriately. Yes yeah and even had the character be like this is a metaphor order by the way. What do you think is the most unusual that we're gonNA see what Hashtag? Jj copay. Yeah I mean. We're counting poppy play. Yeah what what what do you have. Is that where you were chunky sneakers and no no adult dresses up as a puppy and enjoys that as part of their routine are we. Yes ask are we counting for for suited people that yeah. That's a whole other. Yeah that counts absolutely. Yeah I think so too but he has to be your s to be a relationship Asian ship. There's all kinds of relationships here sure it has to be one where someone is the owner in. Someone is the PAT. I'm going to say also it should be something that's furry right I mean unless it's seaman seaman so if you have a snake put a wig on it put a wig. Put a wig on your snake and you know what if you just want to kick it up a notch. And you don't have avenues at arranged lying around. I put a wig on it political wig on no matter what it is you change agendas beautiful saw furby might as well put a wig on fucker braids. Yeah yeah that would be cute. I would just a snake with just like maybe some some full-bodied share curls I they also say maybe longstocking stuff pretty much no matter what animal it is if you want to tie some some sponges to its feet in can have cleaner kitchen floor that way. I think that's a great idea to well. It's long as it's not too heavy like you do that. With a hippopotamus that is going to be a problem. You're after reinforce. The floor. Surprisingly vicious said they might eat you. I'd love to see a Falcon. I'd love to see a falcon on a like a leather gloved hand with a head on it shrieking about yeah shrieking about the podcast. I mean Yes I've got the head on. There's got to be to listen to got to be a falconer. Yeah there's little ear buds. I think it's nighttime. When I listened to my podcast where we catch Tesla allies already has got to be a falconer in our audience? Yeah this is at least one falconer. I'd like to see it on a Golden Eagle. Maybe amazing owl now I I would be really impressed if an owl endorsed your show but specifically in all that was really stupid but scared everybody was going to know and so they pretended to be super intelligent agenda. So it's a it's an it's an owner saying hey if you heard about the show you totally. Yeah but look at me. I'm an I read a lot of obviously I I just graduated. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. I've got a bunch of diplomas and it's just like Mouse Butts Leonard. Yeah he doesn't eat. The butts grows no gusting the head and the little abdomen arms. Throw the ball away the filters in there. It's that's true unless you want. Do not eat the mouse but unless you want a very satisfied and this is a millennial Our it's been out the AL's been doing it for years with different names. It's just that's what we're calling it. That's true Oh that's fair. Yeah so yeah definitely eat the booty like groceries. Because that's what they eat Elisa. Where can where can in our listeners? Find this as eating our magic. This podcast you can listen to my podcast cool playlist Picking a little bit of a hiatus right now but there's lots of old episodes that are up there. Max Munster's I think you've been on that podcast yes Jordan's on it. Yeah we had a blast. We made a playlist for songs to dance with your cat to And you can find me on twitter at Adelaide's skinner and on instagram at at a skins. Because I am not consistent if you get the chance to see Lies Skinner out and about doing stand up comedy as well one of the best. Thank you one of the best Asturiana bust a gut. You're going to think a little. Hey well I write about most of those things on the twitter. So let's go you know it's also a few want to yell at me. A lot of people do out there too. Yeah if you've got of a problem with women You know any any of the stuff that people things you said about star trek short treks for or errors starts. You knew what I meant can I can. I mean lingus if people are if people are mad at you for being a woman who has is thoughts about things for doing being a woman do makes jokes sometimes instead of sending them at ally skinner on twitter. One Mike Skinner. That's it's the guy from the streets that people really excited about for a long time in indie music and I never got it. Wow Fuck is how I would say or if all of that is too complicated Walk out into the woods you can find a rotten tree stump that kind of hole in the middle and just yell it down into the middle of that yell all all of your problems with me into a tree stump or walk out into the woods. See if you can find. The Guy writes the songs. Sure yes this is very bad those out there too afraid to go on. He was going to do it for me. I'll take that week off that snake and put it on me a hash tag your tweets Ashtec. Jj performing that would be great snake in a wig and all the parents were like he was really on fire tonight.

Episode 567 - Take of Two Keynotes - 9/17/20

"Hey, let's start the show for Thursday September seventeenth twenty. Twenty welcome to this is only a test, the official podcast of tested. Come. Wow tastic. Well. Done. That was an intro courtesy of grant Crawford. Thank you so much for setting that grant I. Loved. It was exactly what we had asked for in terms of different musical styles at San, even got the name of the show in the intro. Love It balled grant always still soliciting new intros if you WANNA generate one around fifteen to twenty seconds email to me. Norman. At tested or you can send over twitter upload your soundcloud Link much-appreciated. Well, done everyone. We do cast this week and I'm joined here for a very important podcasts. You weren't even here last week Jaren but you could not miss this week or last week it. Was Me and trace less important last week. No, it was. This is way more important than why wow this is why you're here. You could not mrs one. So important because sure had the miss it but got you on because a big week in tech indeed how you doing Jeremy I'm great. I'm great. Normally this time of year I am in San Jose at a convention center and I could not be happier to be at home I feel like I've reached e three level fatigue with even oculus connect. No I know I'm an old man I'm happy to be at home Norman. This is fine with me I'm in loving the new digital. You know way of life. This is where we disagree because I actually was traveling the past few days. So did a big road trip and just got back home late last night work on the the quest to review, which will were that's big story. But this morning, I still woke up early and I, miss the the excitement of driving down a San Jose. Normally, you know with the previous oculus connect events, the keynote would be ten am out of their account for the bay area traffic. I would leave a wake of it's seven, get on the road by eight and give myself an hour and a half to get to San. Jose. Arrived late I'd save you. Most of the time arrive late miscalculated gets stuck in that San. Bruno. Traffic arrive in the parking lot would fill up right when I got there scramble and getting messages from Jeremy Where are you? Where are you I? Miss all that. Do You well let me And you know what? Of fifteen thousand people I don't know how people usually attend connect. But I think a lot of people enjoy enjoy being able to attend it online despite whether or not. You could actually be physically and San Jose I think it will tell. You know we'll talk about the numbers. Reach up to eighteen or nineteen thousand at some point on the Stream I was watching. But. The relative numbers, and before we get into the whole thing because that's going to be our our big top story ran base have two big things to talk about this episode Good to see you again Jeremy. You stop by for a little bit too upped. To, make a meal in the in your quest to review that was fun help and help hold the camera at some points so much appreciated their. and. Well, yeah, it's it's a long time Were your now I I've lost chocolate days. We're two weeks away. Is that right from the release of star squadrons for those you counting? Yes. That's up right We're not GonNa talk about Moon Long we missed out on our Mulan. Last week. So loud. You miss all the controversy there. You want to give your out of five star rating real quick. The Oh of the controversy or The movie, the movie I give the controversy of five star rating and I give I, give the movie, a four and a half. We enjoyed it. We enjoyed it. We really did I mean it's got some of the best fight scenes in. Time I can remember and it's got a good message. Loved watching it with my daughter in with. A, but the controversies for real to you don't want the revelations. Or when you came over and. You saw the like give you a tour of the House and all the renovations we've been doing my office and living rooms I didn't realize you've got a new TV. You tell us you technology podcast every week, and you didn't how could you not let us know that you are on TV QUEST Will recall you mentioning either and I did a review I. There's a video on the site of the new setup that I have. You know I gotta come. Confessed I don't watch every video on tested, and so I didn't know about that I don't recall it coming up on the podcast but you're right. I did I got a new TV I upgraded my five year old. LCD with an old lead from LG I didn't know you'd bought the exact same TV. So we have to compare settings. I'm still tweaking mind what have you have you tried the filmmaker mode the Yeah Yeah Did you come away with the same conclusion, which is actually kind of prefer the normal cinema hd hd HDR modes like film maker mode capping the brightness. I. Think. Personally I like it bright even though that may not be the filmmakers intent. Whatever I like I'm totally into off the screen, the frame rate interpretation stuff. That's my first thing I ever do when I get not and I guess I haven't had too many generations of TVs to actually do that but I do do that I. And that's fine. But the odd one of the settings is not filmmaker but like some of the presets in there for the picture settings, one of them is. Supposed to be cinema and there's cinema home and regular cinema. One of those has frame rate interpretation turned on and you can't off. That's right. Believe that is the cinema home version and turn do not doubt. Yeah. Yeah. It's very confusing and also. When you when your feet has hd, are you're watching stream on Disney plus on Netflix or on a disk? When HDR gets turned on, you get a different set of presets I. Know We're getting into the weeds and this is something that's only irrelevant to people who have leads L. G. O. leads. But it's it's just speaks to the state of how confusing TV settings are these days and optimizing calibrating and why people are so obsessed with the minutia of calibration and whatever year you gotta go to the forums and see what's changed in the Ui what's changed the back in because they're new processors at interpreting images differently I in a will who were going to try to get on the podcasts at some point to talk about his upcoming inquest He posted a thread on twitter about the debate of whether he should go with lead or LCD, and we did a comparison last year between the Samsung hd are LCD's led backlit LCD's and eleven LCD is extremely bright. The block levels aren't as deep as the leads and I still think. Door for dollar the let's give a better experience because of that contrast because of the HDR quality but he's really concerned on Burnin Gary's been burned by burn. You know it's not the only place that an old versus LCD discussion is being had today norm can we move into the top story? Wow, what a transition? Yes. Yes. Jeremy. I had to think about that for a second. You're absolutely right. LCD. Where's where's my words? My adjustment can't even. On No yes. Let's move on to our top story. We lost Jeremy's picture for a second. He is now imaging Webcam now. Now you're back to the old Webcam what your image quality has gone to crap. You don't want your heart I worked on that. I to the power adapter and everything. We lost you. You're going back to your old logitech is was that Logie the the Laci logo on the bottom all right Well, we'll stick with this at least microphones are aligned. Hey, there you go. Right there I five hi, five boom arms. Boom arms. Yeah. Well, done people catching that in the video. If you're watching video, you'll get what we're saying but you're not this is all dissolve filler. All right. The big news tough story we're going. To things to talk about and we're going to talk about. FACEBOOK's our facebook connect I which happened this morning via livestream. No one was in San Jose. To to be in a room, it was all prerecorded video got cameras nice cameras in in Mark Zuckerberg's house presumably his house maybe it wasn't his house. In a lot of the teams there baas courses there. They did some fake video conferencing. It was all a little bit of the modern era of stilted livestream quote. UNQUOTE, keynotes. Four I still think apple has done the best job of that and I did have one this week as well. but shocker the news most of the news was dropped. And leaked two days ago. So the Big Rubio quest to preorder today three, hundred dollars a big price drop improve harper. The fact that are calling quest to is very notable. They don't see this as a quest plus quest pro s the own quest to the first one that list to product. That's true except decatur. Your at your yes. Yes. The quest to and they not only. Accidentally. Released the launch. But also, a bunch of the training videos on was Monday morning you sent me a slack message now is freaking out because we're still preparing a review thankfully, embargo embargoes still held, and there are still things to social surprise people with with our impressions and with the the announcements. But you know they kind of the announcement also people don't expect. There are those leaked pictures. We saw weeks and weeks ago. The fact that the first quest was discontinued with retailers and even on site not just short supply. Out of stock for so long Really. Foreshadow the launch of this product today right now, the biggest news I think being the price drop that did not leak. So that's one thing that they got to reveal today this morning to people that you the quest to now starts at two ninety, nine, one, hundred dollars less than the base quest one same capacity but. Fifty percent more pixels You know this new processor which has a lot more headroom and revised controllers. And a potentially a ninety hertz refresh rate, which isn't unlocked yet. But hopefully, by the time this comes out, we'll start seeing some recompiling by with the depth to see what that how that affects battery life and you know just general use. But the best thing I think is the display because now you have that full RGB, Stripe Pixel fill and higher resolution. Yes. No the leads are gone carmax status much like he implied that they would have done this. Had they you know arrived at the rift deaths and and OCULUS GO technology a little sooner but they went with old leads for quest one but yet so this is an LCD future and it's for me I'm okay with that a lot of people swear by black levels it's really important especially in space games or Other where you want a black background, sabre tetris affect all have dark black backgrounds infinite. It's true but I personally especially when it comes. What sets VR headset apart from television is that? Is You don't have the context of the room. You don't have the environment competing with it and so in in Vr headset what you perceive as the lowest level of gray in an LCD screen your mind interprets that as black as long as it's not to agree GIS, you know certainly there are. Black. Levels that are just too much. But I think that they that they hit the sweet spot and I'm perfectly fine with that. Personally. Did you did you see the Palmer Luckily tweet this week? We're GONNA. Find that ballpark a reference to his mayor culpa that one back when he was still with Oculus with the price, the price number of he added posted it must've been on reddit thread were when people are asking you to Ama and people asked about the pricing for C. One. Hit that. Ballpark. Of Three fifty and obviously CV one launch at six hundred dollars with no touch controllers that Xbox Game Pad, and even then they were saying. This was at cost at least based on the efficiencies of their manufacturing and how much they're lens stack cost back then in the supply for led displays and to see this is probably the biggest advantage of the new management coming in is all that all the partnerships they've made with manufacturer with their manufacturing chain with their supply chain and of course, really eating you know taking the bulk that causing and probably making this at a loss I can't like qualcomm they they're selling exarchia chips. Even at quantity. They're, going to be, expensive. They sell these chips to to phone makers and those phones. Typically if you're buying the high end, you know with the markup, they sell for over five hundred dollars even like a one plus phone with the latest qualcomm trip is not going to be sub three hundred dollars in a significant piece of silicon that they're making that mock on the margin on, and then add that to the split ad controllers at all the stuff plus you know she's Talking about the actual hardware, the bill of materials you're talking about all the R D that can go in and all the marketing, right? Like they must be taking a loss at this at three hundred. But they finally hit that promise ballpark number of sub three, fifty, three, hundred dollars anecdotally from the people that I've spoken to today. That matters like that. That hundred dollars off at twenty five percent price cut actually had we'll have an impact on adopters. You know it's It's so interesting to me that the this life cycle, the first one only lasted a year and a half I don't remember the last product besides maybe a phone that lasted only a year and a half iphone. One right IPHONE. What was it? One of the three G was basically A short cycle update. But yeah I I really feel bad for. For. People who? Had waited. So long for the quest launched in March of last year, and obviously, it was very short supply through the holidays. Last your holidays workplace where you really start to get you know kids and and younger gamers interested game like the one of the things to get and. We following the forms following the community chatter people are excited when the quest was in stock a few times throughout twenty twenty. I people were in lockdown and a very few times and. Anyone who bought it like two months ago yeah. Socks or more recently I don't think it's ever been readily available. It's it was going on Ebay. As as late as the last month for retail price as a used item. So these are these were highly sought after, and that brings me to wonder like. In terms of of the of the profit margin for quest to like the one thing that they could do to maybe shave a little bit of cost was now higher. Manufacturing projections since they now knew the demand for this product was higher than they anticipated, they could order more parts and lower the price of each one. I still don't think it makes up the difference like I still think you're right. They're definitely taking a loss on this, but they're making up a bit of that on the head strap which I think is a huge improvement over the either the original quest had strap or this. New One which is more like the oculus go elastic strap This new rigid strap feels better to me and I'm talking about the fifty version without the battery it feels better to me then the pro audio strap on Franken Quest Ma that I've done, you've done to the original quest and there are a lot of subtle differences. I mean the the announcement for the Kino's they breeze through all the accessories and this is something that. Was a big surprise to me the fact that they're doing to heads traps and it's it is going to be an important distinguishing factor. There are reasons to only spend I think if dollar one actually ends up being the one that makes more sense for most people one because of the price being fifty bucks, but also because it works with link but yeah, like I said. In the review you know the new strap that comes bundled with the class too I think is a regression from the quest one because it doesn't have that lower skull support you're basically talking about one elastic band that goes around and yes, it's easy to tighten. But then also presses the face gasket against your face pretty tightly, and while the quest is lighter than the the question. One in its doesn't stick out as much. You know it's still a lot of hardware in plastic and silicon. That's battery. That's funnier. Face. and. So the fact that they have this new strap design. Something that we talked about putting it wasn't the review is that it snaps onto the side and this side arm which is fixed has a complex curve to it's not a straight arm like it was in the first quest one. So even if you have the deluxe audio shop, I, don't know how easy it will be two three D. print a perfect mount on this arm you can zip tied or something. Well, that was a stopgap solution. There was no rigid strap available for quest official. No I party. Yeah. Yeah. So people did what they had to do I think I think this strap will be I mean. I wouldn't surprise fifty percent adoption on this rigid strap. If not more I mean it's a it's a as far as I'm concerned a necessity. They could have sold it with the strap for three, hundred, fifty bucks and it would have been one hundred percent adoption rate, right I think the fact that you know they probably make margin on the fifty dollars on this I. think it's worth it but they wanted that three hundred speaks to how powerful as a psychological selling point three hundred dollars to ninety nine is to consumer because then they think about this as something related to this or by Nintendo switch or an xbox one s that kind of thing. But yeah three, fifty four or the head strap plus the quest to. Is. Still Fifty dollars cheaper twelve percent cheaper than the first quest at sixty four gigs of storage, which itself we thought was a good deal at the time. So yeah, it's still a good deal and the fact that they're using a new processor. To go back to the strap, there are two straps. There's fifty dollars for the League has strapped as also one where bulges more out from the back with a battery pack that doubles the battery life of the quest to, but it does take the USB port, and so it is a cable that plugs in and you charge it via the back, but it does not allow US wanted this link pass through. A little bit of a shocker to me small print on the sale page. If you go to buy one of the headshots with the battery, it says that you know at the bottom of the page. and. Unfortunately, you could imagine how they could have made it work and they just didn't or they couldn't who knows why. But there is a USB see Jack on the battery pack itself in the rear of the headset that presumably is used to charge the battery when you're not using it, you plug that in as well as you I. Guess then also plugged. Do. You ever unplug the quest like if you plug I, wonder if you plug in that in and have the the cable plugged into the side of the quest if it charges both batteries who knows a pass through charging yeah. That's got to be software. It's kind of. And I don't know because we haven't been able to test it whether drains the head trout battery first and then drains. It's like it depends on what type of electronics they have in there. It's like you know you by hand held vacuum and you can't plug it in and charge it and and and and us at the same time can only charge. It's all about how much money they spent on their capacitors, right so I would have liked to have seen it. If you plug into the back into the actually you know the battery Pack Port, I would have liked to have seen that passed through to link Yup and not charge you know if you're using link and just use it as paths through. Charging link anyway well. Absolutely. But I'm saying if they apparently that doesn't work, you can only charge through that back port. So I'm just saying you know it'd be nice to pass that data through as an option but. If you're using link. You don't need to be plugged into the back so you can just plug in the size. And another thing with link of course, is that? This leaving Beta. At the before the end of the year. Now I don't know what that means in terms of the differences that we surfaced to the users something that we've always push for, and this is based off of Carmax saying that there's more headroom in USB. And USB. Then what link uses is in allowing the user to adjust the quality right now, it's kind of an oculus software. Go for quality as a Toggle, but I would love to be able to adjust bit rate resolution chains a compression. If I have a strong powerful PC with a lot of headroom like graphics card allow me to maximize compression because I know it's the compressor video right now and presidio has it's drawbacks. link will also run at ninety hurts in the future and my guess is. Probably early next year hopefully sooner But you know the other big news is that they're getting rid of the s the S is being retired didn't really make a big deal out of that and it got kind of lost probably intentionally in the news. But quest is their headset going forward and we got kind of feeling of this is you know when those are changing of the guard management and what the original founders of oculus wanted to push for but a really feels like. The quest being so successful in terms of sales in a mainstream adopter. That's where the technology will go to yet today they positioned the quest to as a better solution. Then rift s already they I don't remember them saying the date, the rift US would be cancelled and it's not today you can still buy it on here right and that's what I'm told. Is Odd because okay that would make sense if you had warehouses full of the things, but you clearly don't because they're not in stock anywhere. So I'm not sure why the rift US sales are continuing through holiday that seems that seems interesting to me besides the fact that they do have desktop titles coming out and maybe they want to sell lake I desktop only headset for it but that doesn't make sense or remember Lenovo mixed the headset, right? So I bet it's supply thing and I bet it's a contractual thing that could be it also for developers if they're developing planning the still develop for PC, right? I think that that's the. Way I like their their line of saying it's a better experience really was qualified by the cost benefits of buying one headset for both. But you know I, of course, the resolution bump but my personal experiences I can always tell the difference between when something has rendered locally and it's just a video out versus when it's compressed video and pass through and I know compressed video is how wireless works on the on the five side and compress video is the only way we're going to get wireless but that's not to say I I was still want the option I I like seeing Chris locally rendered images such as part of my DNA. Everyone it's norm here, and before we continue on with the show I won't let you know that this week's episode of this is only a test is made possible with support from cereal box. I've been starting up to do a little more traveling lately a few road trips here and there, and I've been keeping an ear out for new obsessions and audio stories that I can start listening to in cereal box delivers premium. And Reading Entertainment for people who love immersive storytelling that's cereal S. E. R., A. L. Cereal box uses a collaborative writing process bringing together award winning and bestselling authors to create compelling and completely original stories as well as new content around some phantoms most popular characters, cereal boxes, available all mobile devices and users can read or listened to the mercy of audio productions switching modes with just a click, you can enjoy stories, online cereal box, dot com, or with the mobile APP available on Google play and the apple APP store plus the first full episode of every series is free. Some of cereal boxes most popular series are often black marvels. Jessica Jones playing with fire and original series including catcher Forbes says Ciro. Buck stands out among today's publishers leading audiences switch between reading and listening whenever they want. That's how I actually liked to consume my audio stories whether I'm really visual person. So I love listening to it if I want to drive, and then when I get to a hotel room switching to reading stories, and that's my preferred way Marvel's Justice Jones highly recommended as well nor listeners can get an exclusive forty percent discount on select titles by going to cereal box, dot com slash test or using the code test. That's S.. E., R., A. L. BOX DOT com slash test. Now back to our show. Over the past year since Carmax last talk I. One of the things that I was imagining would be announced in conjunction with a next generation. Hardware is a wireless link and I'm so I mean it's clearly possible because verge. Virtual desktop does it although without all the benefits of having? In, house teams and access to the API's hardware So clearly, oculus could do and Karmic mentioned that it would best be done with Dongola that you would plug into your computer and a point to point transmission to. Alleviate WIFI issues or. Banned issues. So, I wonder if we'll see that later I even wonder if there's something built into quest to that will enable that they won't require plugging in something to the USB. Jack. But not announced today and remains to be seen no kind of wireless link announcements whatsoever. But I guess they did say that it would regulating would be getting ninety hurts yes. Yeah and ninety hurts is a benefit of this. New Panel, and the fact that third new processor drive this resolution and ninety hurts. Let's talk about those things. Also the panels we mentioned it is archie be striped the resolution calling to Cape I know before I can throw this SPEC into my recycling into my brain. It's eighteen, thirty, two by nineteen twenty per is so multiply by two it's thirty, sixty, four by nineteen, twenty across both is now that's not. To say, the panel itself is thirty, six, sixty, four by nineteen, twenty, I can I'm pretty confident? Isn't that actually? Panel because it's the image actually. Shifts the where is on the panel Where you have the lenses shifted base on the IP. So they need to leave some margin based on Ip setting since one of the compromises that they had, they made a good point of saying that adjustable I had never been done on a single panel LCD headset and this make sense why that you have to just a software you know the Rift S. basically the same thing when mixed reality headsets at the same for you justice offer APD and it basically. The lenses didn't move, but you had the actual images spaced outline further apart, and if you had a lens design with a high sweet spot, then that would be okay. here there. Again beating halfway it's not fully to separate panels can slide out on the quest one, but you slide the lenses between three spots, fifty eight, millimeter, sixty, three millimeters and sixty eight millimeters, and then you can actually tell when you shift lenses the rendered image like has a slight late in actually shifts as well. So buffer I think on the inside and the outside. By, both use it and. I found it usable uncomfortable and I complained that they're going to be people who are more sensitive to IB adjustments. That may you know you can you can kind of have the move the Lens in between the spot and and have that as a kind of hacked way to to to have intermediate EP without the the rendered image shifting but concerns people with outside that range in the low sixty eight or above sixty below fifty eight and that's a non zero part of the population. Yep. As always always try before you buy with VR headsets. Yeah the processor is from qualcomm. So it's the X. are to base off the x sixty, five, eight, sixty, five platform know they went all in on a a high n chip this time in maybe qualcomm confine like. The. You watch youtube videos of qualcomm announcing experts, you and other prototype kind of headsets that they had. Their big thing is, is I oh, the big thing is a lot of cameras for slam tracking. Things were attracting toby announced a partnership with them and so one of the things that was really. Stressed upon I got the product briefing for quest to was that there's a lot of extra headroom in the processor for future computer vision improvements, computer vision prudence for tracking Now, the handwriting stuff I'm really curious about because currently, there's no discernable improvement in the hand tracking for me. You still get inclusion problems. You still get the kind of latency that you felt with the quest one and I wonder if that is. Going to be solvable with the headroom in the processor or of those limitations of the same inside out cameras because it's the same camera system, I wouldn't worry too much about that personally because there's a lot involved in transitioning to a new platform and just hitting parody with your old one before you can start taking advantage of what the new platform allows you. So I mean the fact that they got here a year and a half to me is remarkable assuming that it launches without problems next month and there aren't incompatibilities or glitches you know it's it's still android based but this this silicon that is running on is all new. and. So you know getting that to work with in the same way that they were able to in the last one may not be possible so that maybe they had you know there's all kinds of new engineering involves. The performance on the x are to is is to x, but that seems like the least of it if you look at graphs of its capabilities, like it's the video, the video stuff like four times more capable but the the AI apparently like it's got some neural engine capabilities to it that is where it's really. I, think like that's where the handwriting stuff and object recognition and slam where you can not only recognize. You know floor levels and basic objects, but actually starting to map geometry onto your your space so that it can see tables and know that there. There's geometric objects like that's where this potentially will go above and beyond quest one in terms of of what's capable and in fact, I don't know did you watch the virtual office part of the talk today not an infinite offices or infinite spaces they're calling it and do like their. Demo. Exactly that where where they want to give you the capability of basically using headless computers but your headset becomes the monitors. It basically have a desktop with a keyboard that is VR track. You can see it with pass through and like full color resolution, you can see your hands and use the keyboard and they map virtual monitors around you as you can. You know as you would see, vr pulled him up. But what's interesting is That you leave pass through on and walk through virtual space and it remembers where everything is and you can program your desktop to be like physical desk. You can program that to be a surface that is remembered and registered as a three dimensional object where things can can rest in. VR So that's going to be important. I think the objects because the pastor here is still monochromatic it's not like we always assumed a are via pass. Through would be RGB I and you need our GB as well as good projected John Mapping for in good Stereo to interact with real objects and have things impose. But if it's the actual mapping of those objects and the keyboard examples, perf example, right like they can see the keyboard, it's monochromatic. But the fact that you can impose a render perfectly rendered keyboard on top of that so that you can see something that looks better than. To be clear. This is a official like Logitech partnership where this keyboard we'll. We'll be actively tracked I. Think it might have you know led lights on it for all. I know one way or another. It requires technology on the keyboard side in order to function to to the degree that they demonstrated but but you're right I think that this is them. This is their testbed for a are like what they're showing off as capabilities with black and white pass through is the first step towards. Ray, bans that we allow you to identify everything in your world and walk through life being you know informed not needing to remember anything Oh we'll talk about those very bands compatibility I want to touch on that because this is where there are some. Maybe. Confusion you know the calling this a quest to, and just like every console generation, we talk about you know xbox looking for backward compatibility and playstation look for backward compatibility and allow that relation because there are basically functionally different architectures. This is the same software stack so. It's running the soffer is sees it kind of as a question? Yes it will not quest to and you'll get quest to assets in games of developers water have that basically at automatically runs all existing quest games at the new resolution. And at somebody to hurts and developers probably option to toggle on ninety hurts if the performance if they can beat the same frame rates at that resolution going forward. So really is just like way it feel so much like that ps four pro that you're playing existing games but now you can do it on four K. rather than a new resolution and and so there's GonNa be no differentiation between you know A. Game that you can play on quest and quest to in terms of the skews you buy one game and it will play on both platforms and maybe going forward, they're going to have know separate download skews. If you buy one game you know and you have a quest, you will only give you the quest to assets and a give quest one. You won't have download all the quest to assets they say that support. That's what developers have me and the right. Now there's no differentiation in the skew in the software pack, right? Yeah. Okay. I wondered about that I wondered if Y-, sizes of packages would have to inflate because you'd have higher s textures. To users in the short term. Yes. That's what it sounds like a long-term. no and their caps on the side software packages I mean, they're selling a sixty four GIG base package, and so most of the Games are going to be under forebodings. The software takes eleven gigs in itself, which is why fifty six Geico four hundred fuels feels the better by. You know what? I don't know about I. Mean I have recommended sixty four to everybody and it's they've never reached that cap you and I are hardcore users and we have we would have. That's why we got the one, twenty eight but. I think most people still I would still recommend that sixty four gigabyte version hate media management I hate uninstall stuff. Having to. See which APP takes the most and uninstall have everything on there. You only have about it internet norm. It only takes two minutes to download anything a delay delayed gratification. No thank you. The Michael Airbrush part of talk today always a highlight. I found it really interesting that he spent all of. Five percent of his time talking about Vr it was all a are today for coming from him, which is a real change of pace like we always get a glimpse of the future from him, and now I think we might be seeing sort of the state of the art in terms of what they've planned to do with with Vr I. Mean maybe we're not gonNA see volition of of the cool displays that they've shown off. Quite. Focal exactly me too I. Want I want I tracking just give me more and more technology, but there was none of that So maybe they just heading into the product pipeline there in development and they don't want to drop too many hints I don't know but we have not seen a a are only talk from him and that's what this was and interestingly it was very little about the visuals they are. It was like eighty percent audio so he talked about like. One thing that a our headsets we'll give you is audio superpowers. You'll walk into a crowded room and you'll be able to look at people and even if they're not wearing the same device you are. A headset will intelligently no to beam, focus their audio into your noise reduction ear buds that you're wearing. And you'll be able to conference in people into A. into. A real world environment from your phone and place their voice in the room like in the circle of people. And that is only you know exponentially augmented if more people wear headsets, it's like self driving cars informing each other of of all the information that they're sharing. And I found that fascinating I hadn't really thought about the audio implications of augmented reality but it it sounds really interesting and then he talks about like neural clicking. So you'll get a message that pops up and you'll neural click it. I don't know if you define that I want them troll labs this is their their risk. This is the company they spent a ton of money on as the. Controller lists. Reading, it's not law musk neural link that you get implanted, but it's going to be passive noninvasive respond. Signals and they demonstrated that he demonstrated that through videos an incredibly he and demonstrated somebody who was born without the ability to move all had didn't have all of their fingers and in Vr or a are they did and they could learn to manipulate the fingers independently. Thought that was really really. Quite fascinating moving. Huge potential there But yeah, the I wasn't clear if the neural clicking was a mental exercise or if it was going to be a physical thing one way or another like it, there's a lot of interesting talk and we hadn't really said this but it is now facebook connect and they made a real big point at the top of this at the top of the event today to point out that this is not just about virtual reality about all the augmented reality. Thanks. They even talked about the that an APP that they have, which is I guess like. What is it? It's not. It's not instagram, but it's like Augmented. animations on people like. Give them hats and Didn't see that. Yeah it's. So it's all it's the whole space. It's every thing that they have going with augmented reality and so. There was a lot more of that than just today. So the project Aria was also the big thing that you know Mark Zuckerberg announced in elaborated on is that a product? No, it's not something you can buy, but this is kind of getting ahead of two things I think. This one primarily for PR and also for investors to plant a flag on the ground to say ours coming right and we are we have prototypes in the wild. So in the wild or big thing, they're trying to get away from the no the the iphone in a bar type scenario and and people will see these and it's mostly a PR move because it's announcing to the world you know like Google Glass. Glass wants the world privacy was something that we were still kind of figuring out and understanding, and now a grave concern obviously, and we have much consumer base with a much better understanding of privacy risks of. Of A are glasses and the need for. A mapping, and so these project ARA glasses they announced will be used by their contractors and employees in the world starting in September and there's a research device not although by it and what looks like is that it will be devices that don't have the optics that you need for a are, but it's more about testbed for world napping and building that Meta data layer. And if it's going to be using the same type of processing that they vote on the F. R. L. Side of the quest, then it's going to be computer vision base, which is very different in the optical base where camera systems, which is different than what apple is doing with a are, which is using lighter using the sensors they have on the back of the IPAD, which it's still mapping mapping is not being, and while you know one might be modern pixel with light value and one might be time of flight in terms of distance but you're still creating a mesh around the world and you know they're both going to have privacy concerns. It's my Yup. Yeah I mean apple, you know there's haters of apple and there's haters of facebook but I think by and large you know apple has a better record when it comes to privacy. Then facebook does and people have reason to be concerned about privacy. When it comes to a facebook augmented reality world scanning, you know I glass had said that people are going to be wearing walking around absolutely and that's I. Think they've made a bigger deal about privacy. Being a a priority for them today than they may be otherwise would have because there's been a lot of concern about that over the past few years and it's fundamentally the business models. It's how they make money and the fact that the quest to is three hundred dollars tells you they need this to be. They want the success needs to be a success so that they can further their business models which are obviously very public ads versus apple. Selling hardware. And? We need talk about the fact that this is the first headset from facebook and Oculus that you will need to tie. Your facebook counts as right in the box facebook account required, and we had news earlier this week that you would if you create a facebook account that is a dummy account that does not have vowed information, you know you can potentially lose access to all the stuff that you've bought with that account on store you'll be a violation of service. which is a real concern. You know the the my my feeling of it is that I have a facebook account and I just never visit and never update it. And I use it and it's yes, it's tied to the virtual. That that they've created for me but as if it's for ads not on facebook to see those ads right but you should know that everything you do on the set is potentially tract and even some of the terms of service have not been updated won't be updated. Tell this device ships finally. So you should actually you know they'll be plunged articles or some great people were covering the stuff on roads, VR voices VR and definitely look to them. They're the first ones to the wave, the warning flags. Yeah, there's a there's a frightening amount of things that can be deduced by intelligent people from biometric information like gate tracking, which you can get from Vr headset or your voice in terms of like you know what? How much sleep you've got to how stressed you are. To your gender or how you identify. So there's a lot of data that may be tracked. By facebook that goes beyond web tracking that goes beyond like what do you shop for? So this is definitely something people want to be aware of. I'm with you. I, have a facebook account I I tend not to use it I on twitter and so. My facebook. Yeah. Of course my. Hardware tied on my facebook account and I'm willing to accept that. But if you're not willing to accept that, I say, yeah absolutely. Be Aware of that and don't get a quest because you have to tie it to your facebook account that. Request, to the quest, ones will allow you to have a separate account up until two, thousand, twenty three. And the? The up separate privates, concern of just identity of people knowing who you are in a virtual space. For example, you can disassociate your real name from your handle. So thankfully, that's still in place. So you don't have to be represented as real name for fear of dosing and subject that in in Games. Of. The facebook stuff. In the quest to stuff the. Question that I've been trying to answer questions on reddit thread and on twitter all this morning and most people are curious about link and how link will work and so I think we addressed that in terms of ninety hurts is what we're excited for. We still get video compression. And we you know personally i. AM. Not Send the review. One of the things I always concierge myself is, is this going to be my go-to default headset if I want to play like half life Alex and the answer is no but I'm fortunate enough that I have an index right and I have access to gt right now on the PC side I'm GonNa get better experiences with that but for three hundred dollars for both an with the possibility, we'll revisit quest when link it's improved. You know that's going be so compelling people buying their first headset guy and that's really a luxury that you both share I have people in my life who only have quest and they play PC games and they're perfectly happy. So I think the additional rigid rigidity of this new strap and the lower weight of the Internet self will be a boon as well as obviously the resolution to. The are playing on the quest to I. think that it's going to be perfectly acceptable to play that way and I I would recommend it to people I what I haven't seen confirmed. Is something I would only make an assumption on which is that you can't play link over USB TO WITH QUEST TO You can with quest one, but it was it was unlocked later initially was only USB three I'm assuming they brought that technology over yes. Yes. Still works with the I charging cable with the quest one grit charging cable the quest to because that one is so much shorter. Okay. the link cable you skipped extra length it's the fiber optics and the you know the I don't know about ninety hurts is whether that will be enough bandwidth on the on usb to write for that. The see what other questions that people have just if they're on Reddit. Lobby Alaska APD I. Think. We we address that the controllers. The battery life is definitely much longer. I have not had the change out the battery of all the actually still read as like eighty percent on trollers since I've got two weeks ago. And the controller battery itself is more secure. So I, don't know if this got a whole lot of media attention but in the original quest, specially with gains were like beat sabre pro level where you really swing in the controller sometimes the you'd spring it so hard that centrifugal force would cause the battery to move you know out of contact with. The contact so you'd lose your controller in the middle of the game. Will I think they solved that here although I, haven't fully tested it, but the battery is much more firmly in place not with Spring anymore. But was like Little Pogo Pin. So like a metal cylinder, that is that is itself spring loaded is holding that battery in place now more firmly. also a better life on the quest to I exactly the same on a better life as quest one live over two hours. Screen recording is so much better. You know I'm sure streaming will be a lot better if you do some type of casting because of that qualcomm processor performance hiccups every game Iran just. From West One. Quest titles ran perfectly on the quest to Got Access to the walking dead sinners and yeah it doesn't look as great as a PC version but really impressed by that running on quest to prescription lenses if you had them for the go or the first question, they thought right in there's no extra ring plastic cap to remove this time otherwise the lens stack the form factor of Lens, exactly the same and they include spacer for classes. But the Spicer's for distance Z access to the lenses but not for the shape of your the oil interface. So they're going to sell this fit pack which allow you to have a wider or narrower official interface and I of that as well for for forty dollars. It does fit in the original quest storm case to if you paid for that travel case for quest one question fits in that even with elite has trump really. Yeah that's a little bit. But if it's I saw that the elite had strapped with battery comes with a case. So just point that out because I actually didn't know that and I ordered one and a case. I guess I'll have a staircase. That's a good point, the elite strap with battery visually from the pictures we've seen looks like it is bulkier on the back. So I don't think the elites drop with battery will fit in the genuine quest case because that's already very tight fit with the current elite strap. So that's that's the caveat there. I, think that's basically answering most of the questions it's something hopefully be doing more. Comparisons through the Lens shots compared with index and the g two and doing some linked testing But it ships on October thirteenth and they did say they will have this in wide supply. It's not sold out yet for preorder day. So maybe they got their supply chain stuff all in order when I last an hour ago the only thing that was postponed was the battery strap everything else was still shipping on release day. Awesome all right, and of course, since available from them directly or their partners, retailers, Amazon best buy, and all that jazz. All right. That does it for our top story and the VR minute I know we didn't even get a VR minute. Tuned this time, let's move on to our second story. Hey.

Story this we actually getting a chance to Washington this keynote live was I was on the road but apple had their September events and we get new IPHONES JEREMY NO I was hoping we would, but we didn't, and you knew it and they told you, they said it was all about time or whatever the amount the invitation said. I can wait. But what did they announce looks like two pieces of hardware plus one piece of software yeah. Yeah We didn't mention that about quest. They also had fitness stuff that they announced. Oh? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yes. That'd be a new fitness tracker for even when you're playing like video games like pizza, you'll be able to track your calories burned and just just a taste of what's to come when they can tell you how much calories is in that sandwich you're about to eat with their ar glasses. Yeah. So we got new apple watches. What is it serious? Six Fix Syria six. New Processor. While that's no surprise. Is it well, technically the last Gen series five and four had the same processor renamed it. And the added the software improvements allow the always onscreen. Right yeah. So now I guess the big improvement is it can measure your blood oxygen level I was hoping sure would join us today. So he could convince me to get a new watch because I need this feature. Otherwise, I really am struggling to find a reason to buy it I have the two year old Apple Watch. That's working perfectly fine and as much as I'd like the blue aluminum I don't think it's going to be worth the four hundred dollar investment for me. Yeah. This. Form factor is exactly the same battery life to the same. They say charges faster still eighteen hours they save battery life. Cycle. Now, with hardware that you're seeing like a three year. Line turnover rate the three year life span for a piece of external hardware is designed before big you know bigger screen or thin form factor what they've packed in here is certainly more in terms of. New, sensor for the your your blood quality which lead quality. Your, what is your blood oxygen oxygen levels a still like an IRA light and is still using the same same way. They would track your heart rate. It's just looking at your veins extrapolating that data and the big thing of course is, of course, you know the covy concerns, your blood auction quality being is symptom perhaps of respiratory problems So. Fitness is their thing. You know new colors, new bands, high price they are selling this, and then a new s e watch version. For Two hundred and eighty dollars is that basically last year's watch through and through its two years ago watch because it's last year's watch without the always on display basically what you have like modern watch but surprising, they're also selling the series three. Hundred Bucks. Want. It's the old design old form factor. Why is this too confusing for me? Whenever, they do this and even the IPADS got tell you like they're talking about the new IPAD air and I'm like, okay I I I'm on Tech podcast and I'm not sure if the IPAD air is better or worse than the regular out at this point because it's got these beautiful Kurt Lines. Now it's all flat edges and it's more of the edge to edge display So it's it's it's it. This is confusing when they have three watches yet you can look at the price points, but it's just a lot. It's just a lot for consumers to have to understand I think. There's something to be said for when Steve Jobs came back and the discerning feature was size size. Do you want and then you can choose your price point that? They really kind of. Both on the macbook side and on the IPAD side, the air name has kind of screwed them over a bit right air used to mean. Thin the thinnest possible but you pay a premium for and certainly, and then and then on the macbook site air which used to be thin as possible you pay a premium for end up being be budget lied now's kind of their budget line versus the pro and they got rid of the straight MAC book. So like the naming conventions have confusing but from a standard consumer point unless you're following your year years looking at price prices like what you get for that price and so you think of it, it's IPAD is the entry level like three. Three sixty or something six hundred dollars for IPAD air and then nine hundred dollars, right pad pro at starting price and the new thing the IPAD air. So compelling time because actually has a fourteen processor which is gonna be the latest and greatest one inherits Zayn from the IPAD pro which was the. The thing they change two years ago I. Think November two, thousand, eighteen I remember because I got it. Once my baby was born as a personal birthday or a present for myself. That's been a great design. So incredibly fast processor much better design. No face idea on this touch ID retaining it but on the button, which is fine. But. I say that is preferable because they confusing. Sure I think. Okay but for me like. So many times been working on a project. Fixing the sink and I have my instructions on my ipad out or my phone I. Guess Rather and I screen terms off and I have to stop doing lifted. Look it up. I JUST WANNA touch. You know that's great. I. Think Putting Touch ID anywhere is a is a positive thing I agree and I think the speaks to apple realizing as as novel of feature as face idea was and as important as idea was to get those are lighter sensors ir blasters chew their supply chain into scale manufacturing from a user experience perspective especially on a tablet where you can block the. Thin, you can very easily blocked the camera block cameras. So frequently on the IPAD pro I, it just as a worse user experience than having something where you can press the your finger on even on a smaller surface area we're talking about thin button versus the circular touch ID button, and this is apple not admitting they were wrong with face id because I still think we'll have. Face idea on the phones going forward be a part of the some but it speaks volumes that there is no face ID on macbooks that still touch ID on the keyboard for biometric security on the macbooks and come apple were where's the bravery you get rid of your your USB ports you're getting rid of your your other ports whereas the bravery in just going forward with technologies. What do you think about apple fitness plus is that something that interests you? I don't I don't subscribe to. Like. The idea of subscribing to a fitness program just. Certain. Fitness. But even if I, did I probably wouldn't subscribe to a service but I know people who do I know people who what does that the treadmill service where you actually Hello Tom Yes peleton has screen you have a service it's like you probably pay a monthly fee and you get on and you take your your exercise routine with an instructor It seems like apples totally trying to go one on one with that and they are. Now offering to a monthly subscription. You can sign up and what they got us I mean I got him at the technology is kind of cool. If you have an Apple Watch while you exercise, your metrics are displayed on the television, and if the instructor tells you to check your heart rate or to check in with yourself, that element is highlighted made larger. So there's a real kind of live real time aspect to which is which is cool. But it's not for me. However it it's going to be included in the new bundles that you predicted like six months ago. Well at one, this is not the Harvard Bundle I'm predicting is still hold on to that prediction, but I think this is a stepping stone for that. I think they looked at the pretension rates for their variety of subscription services the things they can hold you by the balls with which is I cloud. Right? They're going GONNA get your I cloud money no matter what because you film so much four. K. Video on your iphones and and you're you're limited storage like every capital two hundred and fifty six gigs on my iphone but people were not probably pertaining on Apple TV plus after that first free year and they're looking at news apple news. So bundles the new hotness it's Amazon strategy for with prime from the get go and so three different bundled plans if an individual plan for fifteen dollars get you. A meager what is it? Five? Hundred gigabytes I thought it was too. Now two, hundred, two, hundred gigabytes on I cloud boom you also get. Apple Music and Apple. Arcade is that right? Yep. Apple TV Apple TV. So fifty bucks a month more than your standard Netflix subscription more near maybe not as much as your prime subscription. That's when they keep jacking that up But the family one seems like a sweet spot twenty dollars a month it's made for sharing with families and they'll get people in Apple TV plus get people into The same as we get in the Mitchell plan, but you get to terabytes of shared storage, and if you're if you're already have a family plan on apple music, you're already paying fifteen dollars. So if you're if you have that in addition to apple TV or arcade, you're already paying twenty dollars. So this is kind of a no brainer I think you know this is one of those times when. They figure there must be enough people that aren't paying you know a little bit more but the people who already are they actually just makes a whole lot of sense and are actually gonNA earning less from people like me because we're going to downgrade the family plan and get more stuff. Yeah and they did that calculation I think there are many more people who subscribed I clown and maybe one of those services maybe it's music. Maybe it's maybe it's an arcade but not a lot of other ones and certainly I could canceled my arcade subscription. I wasn't planning on reopening on Apple TV plus I'm not I'm a spotify spotify subscriber. But they're kind of you know the I share an I, cloud account with my family and we have family sharing for baby photos and videos, and so that's it really seems like a sweet spot good for me but. Good for you but I, think it's going to get more people they're gonNA they're gonNA make their money don't worry I. Still Say Apple Arcade is like the use cases kids I still say that because it's it's got no ads it's got a purchases and you're guaranteed that to be the case for everything in it. So it's like that's for me I don't I you're right I played the games that the day it came out I played a few of them since then it's just like I. Tell my kids you WanNa game, pick it from arcade and it's easy. Yeah. Yeah. And there's a higher tier, thirty dollars a month I believe and that includes Apple News as well as fitness program and I feel like, yeah, they need that for the revenue share and the cost of running this fitness program. Yup Yeah the the Apple. News. I I. Wonder about the utility there I use the regular news APP I. think that's a especially well done. It's curated. It has a lot of good articles surface for me I don't know if I'd be interested in paying for the. Expanded features of that. What else was announced that the Apple van was hot head. What would you think of the livestream? They're they're they're the remote stuff? Oh, I guess the other big news is that Iowa S. fourteen out today. Does everything. Really, yeah, it might have been one more thing but you know rather than wait for the new phones new IOS across Apple Apple Os ipad Os all out today even probably the day before it's already out by the time you listen this so on the sixteenth yeah that was their big sudden drop. Wow. I completely missed that yeah. How about that? That's a new thing. I've never has very anabel. What a year? I was fourteen fourteen fourteen and watch os seven one day's notice. So developers are scrambling compatibility but the updates here. All Right No mention of course of the unreal. The epic. Spiff and the legal battles. Of course in that stolen on go that's the elephant in the room right this the spat between the revenue cuts. And developers. Yeah. No. As much as we care about facebook announcements and apples announcements the only thing my. Old Cares about the world today is the Rocket League update. For play I guest the official free to play isn't for another week or so but they like half of the half of the update happened today. So if you already owned it, you get a bunch of free stuff. They're making some modifications you can get a new car with the different hit box gives you an advantage all this new stuff. So you know you talk about difference of perspective and epic. EPIC is still very much in the news in this household I'm just saying. Those are big news stories. We got one more thing just as we're recording this plays playstation price and release date and what else what his five. So two versions we expected a digital version with no disk and then the standard ps five version. Four hundred dollars for digital five, hundred dollars for PS five. So match the price with the xbox series x for the high end at five hundred dollars but the five digital will be a hundred dollars more than the xbox series S. this is Microsoft flexing though Marquette Cap, but isn't the series S. Only a fourteen, forty P device like it is it can't do as much as the lower tier playstation. Playstation is as good as the big guy just doesn't. Just doesn't have the drive in the BLU. Ray. Playback. Consul so Yes Give Me God don't make me like get worse stuff. Let me make a choice whether or not. I can put a disc in it or not I can wrap my head around that but let me play the same games with the same fidelity. Can play the same games just not the same unlock don't have four TV's. And and and there are to be you know MEX has their hardware subscription plan essentially that you're paying monthly and for the xbox series s version it's you know it's way more compelling for three hundred dollars amortized over whatever two years that you're paying monthly for them to drop that three hundred dollars all at once November twelfth release date in us. Canada. Mexico. New Zealand and South Korea and November nineteenth for the rest of the world. What about Japan? I think Japan. Has got to be in that. Did. They play video games I play video games. Twelve the twelfth Japan. Japan but outside of Japan, it's going to be us. Canada Mexico. Australia New Zealand. Area there were rumors earlier this week that Sony has a manufacturing problems that they're reducing the number of ps four or ps five. Sorry. Being put the market but they came out and said, nope, not true. Bloomberg's wrongly falsely have not changed production number five since the start of mass production and you know these are all very new SOC's manufacturing both on the Microsoft side and the Sony side and the argument to do different capability capable consoles is that you can been the processors right? If you're manufacturing and your quality. Cores you know don't meet quality standards, but they you can actually allocate those for a lower power processor like the xbox series s that was the speculation but we'll believe Sony when they say they're ready for full production in. So November will be exciting console a lot of money to spend our feet for quest to do I pads shit preorder today shipping this Friday ipad airs new iphones. Announced that iphone twelve and the new consoles. This is like the most normal. The world has felt in the world of technology and gaming along timing hype for the new CE's new consumer electronics. That's funny. 'CAUSE did you see gary with is tweet yesterday? He said that very thing is what I got the receipts are he rip it off of me because he texted me asking about the updates And I literally said right here getting hype for the New Apple Products is the most normal I felt in the while yesterday at five pm. Seriously Gary what and then tweeted this morning. Thank scaring. receive. Like one of those comedy writers like rights for. Famous. Media. I, hope you got well paid for that. No certainly not you probably said this but the priorities for playstation. START, tomorrow. So today if you're listening to this podcast. Yeah. Better. Hop On that. Priori Begin at select retailers we'll see and for people who had signed up to the early notification for preorder. The people who they were. GonNa sell I people already in the system establish playstation fans. That's still I think the case so. It's a lot to take in. There's been a lot this holy season. It's GonNa it's GonNa feel weird because we're still in lockdown people want new games to play. Right. That's. Why is that? Video Games is done really well during lock shelter in place we'll just saying it's going GonNa be competitive because we can't people going to rush to go to stores or want to go to stores the by the stuff, but it's all online, and as we've been moving toward online model and I can tell it's going to be front I. Could it's GonNa be frustrating for people they can't get the hardware day and date. Of, launch and WHAT SUPPLIES GOING TO BE? Based on past history I. Big supply constrained whether artificially or not like like the man's going to outpace the supply. Launch. As I already implied I. Don't I don't intend to get the new watch and I, but I for the first time in the day yesterday as I was going to bed at midnight, I did check to see how soon I could get one and they were do you can't get until mid November as of last night so the probably delayed even further. So you're right. There's a lot of demand for hardware right now and surprisingly maybe because. People were thinking with having the past year. Maybe there's not as much employment maybe people's disposable income is a more restricted level. I don't know. We'll see we'll see how the rest of the year goes. There's plenty of oculus quest still available apparently, and and let's let's you know. Let's make that very clear. Let's be sensible author stuff. They want to know about new hardware we want to know about new hardware, but like you know these are tough times for everyone. We don't know what next year is GonNa look like certainly tons of people who've lost their jobs or furloughed, and so while we get excited for these products and what they mean terms knowledge payment, that's a normal world and it's okay if you don't buy new hardware this year especially in stuff that we don't know how it's GonNa performer housing supply, get hype about it. You know you can watch youtube streams to extremes you can be part. Of the community that way but don't feel like it to be out there by new hardware definitely don't risk your own health to wait in line for the stuff. That's just in this today's not not very practical. The do short sensibility to the to the World Mo said Norman. All right. So that's it for the podcast. We thank you Jeremy so much for joining me. Hopefully, we'll have a full crew next week. You know you weren't here last week for this particular Altro but I'm GonNa play it again because I thought great job did such a great job and And might even bug you just a little bit.

Sexual conquest. Can you wrap up keys one day? You dream kid shoot. Oh beach. You want to tell me? Gain. They take two. I think like three months putting on my Casin put also my Cassini put on my can make love to. But no, I mean, you put on some you put on some singing is terrible. You put on someone with? But you're seeing is at another level. Now, you just hating my raps is horrible. Anyway, man. But at least you listen to the beat now. Doing your best to like matchel energy to the beat. Hey, Manam, independent, man. You know, we independently sign Noko any way, man. Thank you off at tune in to check is your boy priest. Daddy, Ryan in the caddy long leg. Daddy. Sorry, ladies, keep you waiting. Go ahead and say what's up? Hey with ladies. It's ridiculous. It is. This is Dr J nice to nice to be back on the Mike. Let's up ya'll girl tiff. Welcome back, a DIY do that pause in between when I say go ahead and say what's up because they say I forgot that. Hey, you say that guy calm down like just pitched forgot that. But you said, okay, I do wanna make sure you know, like guy away for light. 'cause I'm like seeing my hair like the audience going crazy. Patty. I'm like nail down down when they come down by doing that. Ain't nobody wait till we saw. Wait till we saw to wear like. No because I'm gonna do it today. Hey. He was here. No matter. No matter what. Go live now, it's to be a RAB. We're going to show you going to be like. How you doing ladies? They gonna be like. Like calm down calm down. Daddy, riding catty. And then we'll come way down like a football player. Like, hey, calm down the stadium. What's up ladies? All even know what to do where we started at today. You know, say I'm ready fi. Say. Oh, see s we took the cure with us to the teenagers. Yeah. So. I'm let you start because I feel dumb. He did on the one eighteen. Hold on on before before we even before we get into this lead shot. No, this will be a major spoiler alert because we're gonna talk about. Yes. We first of all I thought the movie came out a long time ago. I didn't realize it just came out. Packed weekend. But it was packed because of the success get out like good out. I thought was adult movie garbage to see say too. I said I thought it was. Blue garbage. So I was like so I think a lot of people were like, okay, get out was school. So this is going to be another good one. Like a little twisted. Good movie. Concur on that train. I think any of that. I'm wondering it was like suspenseful for no reason, it was a it was actually somewhat. Somewhat suspenseful. Was you like on your edge like say for no reason, what if his still hit that thought it was gonna be successful? But then it really wasn't. Suspense widow matter. But this has been the matters eight suspense, you can you play the right music and anything can become suspenseful. Right. But she got the hype. Just the preview like with the people standing that was the creepiest part well. What she talked like this. Oh, my life that kind of game. Where she talked like that. I was like what is going that was creepy. Not only was it was that part of a little creepy. But once you get to the end, I'm wondering why she was acting like she been the shadow all her life. Wait, what when we get to talk slow when we get to the end of the movie, right? We realize that the mind for you say that let's just do this hold on. So the movie is about this one girl who went to Santa Cruz, beach boardwalk, and she walked away from her parents, and this should win crazy mirror place. And then she saw an identical personnel. Klay care and then cut scene fast for twenty something years. Yes. That's all we sing. And we've seen and then her the little girl who is now growing up with the family with two kids. Brennan thought voices air. Why did you? American the play these roles. No, he's not from America. You gotta accent. Yes, breathing you Black Panther here. But that's. Have you seen freaking Walking Dead? Everybody on. There is nobody on there from America. Br is not from America. He from the islands. I get that. I didn't know that and Renault. Until somebody was talking about that. I didn't even like I'm not really good with this. But even put it together that that was that was freak it. What was his name? Bockel bassett. It was I didn't even put that together. Because he was so such a door. It was so funny. I'm news much no yet accent. And I just like I'm like man, look this hard look at it. This a lot of different ways represent brothers. Movies. But it was funny when his voice though. It was funny. I thought he was the even know a lot of cats that talk like him. But it's rare you see brothers that talk. Like that. Like you're saying, and I really wasn't filling that he went from to me like the extreme of Black Panther. Where I was like, oh brother is a bee's to like just let it simplest week is I didn't even I didn't even compare on the Black Panther even thinking about I think that's dope. He transition from. That role. He played it. Really good. Got to give it up. I'm not even questioning that he didn't play the role. Excellent. When I'm pretty much saying is that like you not. I mean, the way the way the role was written for him was garbage. How would you have seen it better? Like, how would you have wanted to see it? It was funny. I laughed at him. Like what else could he have like what other didn't have no super macho? First of all, I feel like you you you pretend this to be in the bay. Cruises. The bay. The first thing was in the bay crew non-party bay, the no Santa Cruz Santa Cruz bay area. I'm just saying in aim but take nice is not. But you started the movie in the bay. But even if you didn't stand obey when where would you mean, they start off in the bay word that was like San Francisco where that that? I seen the TV the first scene was the freaking rabbits. And I was like looking at these rabbits Percy was TV, which may commercials city holding the hands. San Francisco count eleven news. San Francisco channel eleven news. I'm cisco. This is not on channel eleven it. Doesn't. Cisco news Santa Cruz. Sure. J Santa Cruz Santa Cruz knows. Let's go over it. I'm not sure right. It could be, but if Santa Cruz with EMI crews gusts Francisco that have to do with. The character that he is because me like you can't play. I got five on it with some corneas cats. You're no far. There you go. I feel like I feel like it's a lot of brothers that represent rather than the better word. What they did it could make I to me I can people. Doom was. He's more me. We don't talk. He was like capital CO are in was wrong with that. There are some corny dues out there. If you married to black beautiful dark oils is sister like that in. No, yeah. Ki Cape marrying kit. You gotta marry a nigger. She got white. Yep. I'm with you on that. Marry no corny any having a Howard. Just think little to deepen too far. His voice specially for movie that requires you to think deep and his voice just a whole learning going. I don't get what you're saying. Oh, the fact that like, you know, what I mean, it was really talking about social inequality. Right. They were. I was I was doing his voice now just hurt. So. I'll doing home. Why are we going? I don't know that her social and quality in the whole movie was about social inequality. The home was about the United States of America. The whole movie was about it was entitled us, right? But a. Us out on God, only, you took it to a level. I'll go here. What were you talking to the movies? Just think you're seeing a suspenseful thriller movie. You got all that. I can see why he says that where are you going with that breath? Hold on poss- 'cause we got to the chat. Yes. So most of that's fast four, and then she goes Santa Cruz, or whatever, blah, blah, blah. And then at the in the evening. Dad? There's a family. Driveway. And that was when he just really held his. Hey voice towards in. When they weren't. Basically from the Ritz. Angle front. I've been watching that scene. Like this. Why needed good I'm into her for the longest I need a gun. Well, I'm not going outside saying just period. Like, I'm putting myself in that situation. I feel that. Now you like I ain't got no gun to bat. Like, no, I need something like the house with the thing. I leaving the house if there's no just elected. I'm not only leaving the house. I'm they would've stabbed me. I because outta walk right up to them in like like, which you have done that I've been to. They look like inmates. What they look like. But I also would outta called you out of eight. I've been nervous. You know here quick out of over there. But I've never I read Davis with Uber. I'm telling you every since I got this ring the doorbell ring, I've been thinking about stuff like that. Like, I'll be like so ringing the doorbell on crazy from my house. I need a gun. And she no trick that I'm getting a gun. I'll let when I get one dodges. You gotta know you need to get one too. Technically. I don't think he can have a. I've got I've got allergy ball mar-. No, man. I am. I I think it's okay to think deeply about a movie that's meant to deeply about. How did we supposed to think deeply about? What is done by Jordan Peele? Yeah. Anything he you to think deeply about? I mean, but we'll. This hints get out, which was another garbage movie. Get out was pretty pretty dog ballistic on the subject keep going where you. Okay. So then basically, they the P. I don't even know what they're called. Underground underground people. I guess shadows shadows, and it was their shadow or whatever they came over the family, blah, blah, blah. I was surprised 'cause I only thought it was gonna be the black family people shadowing getting shadow. Shadow too. I wasn't expecting that one respect. So then they all apparently, there's this whole underworld that they have that mimics mimics was happening above ground. In very Representative in a very weird way. Like a very sort of. You know, that some people look like they will scenes they all look like. That they all look like they was fiends. It was disturbing photo. Hold on. On each on China. Give me to go. Going back to him. If he got me wanna get off. Movie would what happened will we find out happens that the little girl when she went into the little mirror which plays when she was a kid her shadow chokes out switched her out. So the lady who's been in the ground. This whole time has been the shadow and the girl the real girl, human whatever has was down there. And that's why she was different and everything because she wasn't one of them. But it's like why should say walk back upstairs because she probably didn't know how to get out one. Why she didn't walk upstairs? It seemed like all of them. They knew how to get out. Did they? How because you gotta think like hold on either leading note, any leader figure how to get out been becoming because she was special all like the other one which is going with the flows of whatever is going on. I'm with you on that. Okay. Why did it take her twenty something years? Because she was a key. Kidnapped. And she was knocked out. Perfect. Be the right DIVY. So look you got. Isn't that in dragged dramatizing do breath? She okay. So what about that? Look at the with the sun, and the mom would like did he no that's the sun, basically, saying like nigga, I know Nikki that like year, my real mom, but I know that you wanted them like, I know shit ain't right with you. 'cause you killing people little too easily. Oh, yes. You seen high kills somebody. So you think the sun kind of I think the sun caught on. He was looking at her like nigga, you ain't right? Like, you my momma, but you ain't right one. That's why. Keep in mind. I get it. Baby wasn't kill of why. That's what I'm saying. So when he was like walking back into the fire. She was like no she didn't want him to die because enough. I shouldn't kill a girl in the tree. Because she was one of them. So she has no Shiite sympathy for but at the same time, I didn't think because she was one of them. But that's still in her kid though. She wanted. I didn't kill the girl that was in that guy hit by the car and start. She was reaching out for the boy to like like, you know, there's a better way there's life out here like with it take to kill baby girl down when they was fighting downstairs the white girl. No, no, no. When they finally down in the dungeon. Killed her d'appel ganger. Why why you say she was hesitant? She wasn't hesitant because will be killed that girl represented a threat to her. Yeah. But I'm still trying to figure out like you got switched when you was like what ten if she was even that old. Okay. So did you forget I nine years of your life? When you down issues, you got you can't talking about the shadow Arte the girl the regular person. I'll talk about regular now. Thank you got. Depth to your farm when she came up. Like, why does he talk like I've been the shadow like talking to nobody you see minute around health field. If you've been told. Twenty and that me using your regular voice. Go. I'm not I'm out. On the boat when he was he was to do. He game. So. A look. My mom used to keep a special person that talk like that. But he's just like 'cause I used to walk in house. I'll be like, hey, Chris. Communicate. I was done. Him for twenty. But if you were people that communicate like that, and you have no conversation with nobody. And you at number one kid trapped in that. No. I'm going to be whispered talking about the way, she talked. I'm saying when she came up stairs. And she was sitting down in front of them. Right. Why didn't she say like big shoe, stole my life? 'cause she ain't gotta say that she I know she knows that she knows nobody else. No. But and if he started talking like I've been shadow my whole life like I've been in the dungeon my whole life. Like, you ain't been done your whole light. It was his Ingram me. All like. Now you Doug. To own a move meant for you to dig deep ball. So when she was dancing and stuff shadow was have dancing, and she was down there life. But it looks like the shadow. Mike some distort it down. Herbal. Also, you Pete how once you find out get to the end, you realize why the girl wasn't talking for that year when she got. It wasn't her you how to talk to learn learn everything her voice was kind of weird too. Putin Putin loop here PD. Let her voice 'cause she African that. But I was like dang Brennan. Listen to her American accent. I'm not like they both Winston lupita. They both dope. Let's hope we 'em before Black Panther in this. Don't matter. I don't think he was enough nothing. Not as east dope. They both dope. Actors actresses. I just feel like he could have found to dope has American actors for this role. Concur Nick cannon. Oh, no. Pop the pin me of horn ball. Now make Kenny mantle. Look out there. He hit could he could have recycled don't like that. He is not using American people. I don't know our mind name Merican who you just somebody just just more that more related like I feel like whoever he use. It was going to be that character gonna still be the same. Okay. I want to do was really is really like that. Underlying? I wanna know why do he want them to talk like that? Like, what's the point? So maybe maybe that's it. Maybe maybe I renew rescind. What I just said, it ain't that. I'm thought he could have found better actors. I just think he should have wrote the parts differently. So that those actors could've embodied a different type of fan, but you know, what it'd be a whole different type of movie that because we wouldn't win outside we blind. We ain't going out. There would have been that would have been due to go get his gun strapped. It would have been like had some type of corny k. K corny do like I can handle this aren't real. But it's also I got it. Okay show. You issue is one is gonna make right? So it's like a horror movie need them. Coney type dues do corny. Okay. Four. A horror movie, but no, bro. You okay. You need corny dues do corny to stuff then have white actors, but if live movie, but if you're going to bring in black actors, then give us a blacksmith on with the horror film, look like don't give me the same type cast. You know, what I'm saying characters, but they just black now. So you give me a black hole back in on your side. He pulled me back in your winning. Now, you are you are right. Like, you gave me the same character. But isn't black skin rebuttal? Is that he couldn't have put. How you guys are saying basically more macho dominant male figure in that role. The character could not have been that. Because if the character was that then the movie would have played out differently. He had to get some the role. The character have to be somebody who was naive who was kinda clueless who was kind of oblivious. Let's go on on fall on that same like he was tougher. So he was you prove everything that he saying what I'm saying is a couldn't have been no other character. But that I'll give trees who as the role would say, what do you usually to revamped it to where a whole different movie he would have been better Walking Dead. If the walkers can learn to talk than and they get smart, the show will be dumb, it wouldn't work. Okay. But that's why you get paid the big bucks Jordan Peele, like get creative figure out how to feel like he was real creative. Because I was saying the rim, and I was like I gotta have some kind of annoys. Mine too. This look all right. And if a character which all in about over the whole scheme of zones, not leading character. Okay. If you wanna talk about ingenuity like have I ever seen that movie before? No, no, I'd give him ten out of ten all stars. Right. But what I'm saying like I'm going to see his movie because I'm expecting to see a black horror film, which means I'm expecting to see what lack that I recognize recognize. Them situations. We ain't going outside. And then that's what I'm saying is get the strap over starting. Mccoy over because it is. Beat up y'all going smash in the mob goal. Get the frying pan. Everybody going to be fighting the kids ain't going be scared. The movies over like, you can have nobody like that. Create you gotta figure out how to be. Wait. Hold on. Here's a good example. Right. Get out. I would say when I looked at get out. Right. Both the little real character and the main character right as negative. Thank you. I recognize them like the way breath was I didn't have nothing negative way. Like little real was like bread. I'll go out there. You know what I mean? And then the way Brel was out there and his antennas up. Going on I'm leaning you pull me in gave me a family of black people. None of them had antennas from tennis. I'm even know what a firm from the beginning the little girl wandering off like where is y'all and they have house in Santa Cruz have people were dealing with. Like, there's different types of black, folks. Are the same. There are shown. Okay. All black folks to have antennas. Both have black. We need we need to redefine. Level. Hey, all all had to say. Tony rock. You gotta dial. I gotta give levels of antennas. That is true. Lert screw. Be like that. 'cause they antennas was only, where's your nigga level at just on general, Maya Tim level near a mind. Ten level is high might be beyond the tan stated that's the norm. Stay like mine fluctuate like like like when I'm at work. Are you asking going to sleep moat? Now, I'm saying like Tim is going to sleep molding. What what what will go up and down, for example, when I'm at work. I different things. We're talking about Tony rock, right? We saw stand at. He was like he got a dial. Like, what do you call it? Levels. Yeah. To depending on who we will where he had. He can great and do all that. That's what he talking about foam saying like were yours average at my nigga level. Yeah. I average probably around three and a half. Oh, things because I think I I think I spend more time around people who aren't nigga than negatives retire you to change often ochre which on that because I'm but I don't go generally below like a tuna. Over in there. A zero. So what would you do was in this just for the white people to let them know like where where where his levels, right? He was at a negative negative. I think he can't go negative. No, no, no. He was like a point five or a little bit more. Yeah. I'll give a point five to the one. 'cause he was definitely trying to get some asked like despite what was going on. He was in their life people get to breath. But it's it's a difference. Okay. Well, I ain't never been white. I don't know how why people turn they got kids. So I'm pretty sure way he was trying to produce real look he wouldn't even trying to get booty. This the first thing that came my head the way he got on the bed. He was trying to get head like he wouldn't just trying to get nobody got up the bed. He took it. Let s. I'm pretty sure your hand. He was trying to get them back bad to this social Justice lights. What were you going with that the whole holding hands across the land? I don't get that either. But look. Holding hands across the land, representing I got that from. Come together. Yadda, yadda, right. But the whole thing was killed everybody. Let's come okay. Sick that as they just seen a commercial. And f last thing she remembered or something like that the whole, okay? So she came up with the weirdest thing has to end because this is all what I remember this last week. I remember as a kid in that commercial gas, her most brilliant plan as she. The commercial was basically saying the reason why they was doing that originally in nineteen eighty six was as a sign of unity. They need to bring that commercial back. But the whole social Justice thing it always when she was sitting in the care talking like talk puck like talk to. Which was talking. Talking like that. She said we are human. We are American and then she was talking about being tethered. You've got really memory. You wrote that down in the movie theater, you remember the house? Remember, it was important seeing my daughter told me to pay attention. So your daughter, say narrowed? Yes, she is saying. Prior. Yes, she wanted to see it again. 'cause she was like I need to understand it better. So when you think about that whole scene, right? Anything about the fact that they was living underground, right, right? Is basically like you got the have. And the have nots tethered means that the has are connected to the have nots. The rich are connected to the poor. You can't sever the Rick from the port, right? The whole idea was that even the poor are Merican to their even human too right now. She said the we are human. I think when they was downstairs, but it was just this whole idea that like even though we don't have with y'all have. We just like y'all with John and forgot about us Jawan. Y'all y'all created us in the y'all left us down here in this dungeon, the rotten die eating rabbit hole. Creating that's on saying like, she said the government. He he was immaterial. She said government created us to the people. Nocco my her voices a little distracting, and I wasn't really listening to issue getting taking back this. She sounded like that. 'cause I wasn't expecting me. So I kinda like she was struggling to talk. What the government create them for to keep the people top and kick how like breakdown they didn't get into how they just they created them to keep the people in at in the top in the Santa Cruz area that was all across the country. I'm at some point they shut the program down. And that's. Forgot about so hurt. Pulping was we're human too yawning. Forgot about us. We down there living in poverty, eating eating raw rabbits, we won't which yoga we won't. We won't that too. And it was really kind of like if you think about it really deemed bringing with. It was a warning. It was a warning to like those that are at the time. Like, look y'all keep forgetting about them them people at the bottom. They going revolt one day and come after all y'all basically like what's going on the road today? Right. Except for the fact that the poor people aren't revolting. A lot of that. But I'm just saying like I knew what it was about. I mean, I didn't get that. I didn't know what it was about. I'm just telling you heard him. Do interviews. So you didn't like it out. Man, 'cause I just I just feel like I'll be going to the movies expecting entertainment, and then like instead of being wrong when people when you that's what's wrong expectation expectations aren't things. Go to have a good time though. I don't put I'm not putting expectation is everybody else's saying all Jordan pill is the. I don't like hearing people's reviews. I don't like I really don't even like Washington many previews 'cause I wanna go in there. 'cause somebody like man you going to be mad at the ending. I'd be like why did you tell me that even you went to the movies not knowing that you were going to be bad? You let me go into movies. I know what I'm going to be mad is just not. Even if I don't go in with expectations is not entertainment this this movie us for the first forty five minutes. It was boring. It was like trying to stay awoke. Now. Go to sleep it that I'll say is solid seven. It took it took a long time to build up to what you give it build up two. Nothing. Would you give it as a as a score? Yeah. You know, 'cause he black. I'll give it a five. That's what I was thinking of a solid five solid. I didn't like what it is. Not is not bro. I wanna tell them by go. See I told you not gonna go. See that's on the seven movies as okay? Seven. A half a century telling somebody not to go see a seven movie, I'll be like is high. But I feel like seven we'll be more than all, right? Like seven is. That's a pretty good movie as you. Rick solid working. Are you working this me my Email, check it out? But they act you, though, if somebody asks you, hey, you're gonna go see moving he was like, it's a seven I'm going to go see the movie if somebody asks me, should I go see this movie IB like you really can wait till comes out on Netflix. Yes. Yes. Or even the fire. Stick are even Abby like catching all FOX. And if you do only going to day. Is you know what I mean? But yeah, get out this wasn't that entertaining. Entertaining me to an like, he them. It lost me when he was dating a white girl. So I was like I was already like that's what she deserved shouldn't be pretty had to date the Weicker all understand. But it but for me somebody who's against Dayton white women. I'm like you got what you deserve. Have never. House thinking. I'm not I'm not gonna click on that click bait. In the news today hardy.

The police the mayor whole high came out and get some like, yeah. 'cause he did some community service and have to pay a fine or whatever. But like they're like just don't get. They don't get it. Twisted. Just because we drop in these charges. Don't mean that we saying he innocent he win gave the whole even listened to the speech. Even listen to it. Yeah. He did would never do. It was like three slides, aren't I didn't even listen to it. He did it you antagonizing them. Now, take you on again. Yeah. Because you didn't even know that use won't get that win.

We'll see next season 'cause eating Arctic. I read out for this season. So we'll see. It's kinda like a serious conversation which you'll boss though. Yeah. That's we need to have a conversation. But but like, yo I didn't do it. He did it. I didn't do it like. Mean? What would what are we talking Eljay? Like, I am looking at you. Like, look, listen, I talk about whether he'd been let's not talk. When I when I started to work because his talk about 'cause I will put you on trial. Let's just talk about how you have a better plan next time. This is the conversation talk about something backfire fiscus. He really did not think this is going to go this. According to media take out Michelle Obama has to do. I feel like the only person who still goes on media takeout. Day. French freaking media take out as your source. Michelle the bus don't do that. From chicago. So my better get out of Chicago. I. I mean, what does it mean, ma'am? Go ahead. Mama about our Kelly. They got anymore charger. They can draw for me. Really? Went back to court trying to you know, we can't travel and he went back to port trying to do by. He had a show out there. But then the by people came back and biking again that none things scheduled out here. And we do not want him here. The by get lost in India. They hey, five Kelly. Our try to hide somewhere. I'm building underground. You gotta go through that ilk chapel tunnel. That's what I'm saying. Like, I'm going straight like dry me over there. And then when you get to Mexico, you gotta go straight to the beach get on the boat and go that's gone. Just go who do I gotta pay to give can't get on the plane. Why he's not gonna do that. Because. Broke that. And I really think that he thinks that he has not done anything wrong. They're going. I've heard that the tape is pretty old. So I think he thinking that he they going tie bag over his head put his own running back pop in the back of the head. He's getting executed. What happened wait where? What happened? A bag over. He can execute. It man ain't going down. Okay. It's Cardi B. Yeah. Cardi B's because you know, back in her stripper day. Guess she used to like drug guys and Raba WADA. She why does she volunteers volunteers from? I think somebody came out and says something are something. I don't know. But what's new I forgive her? I'm not mad. I part of the culture part of that stripper life. I don't think it was just her doing it individually. I'm pretty sure it was a sting operation that whole Clooney. Like, oh got one. Let's go like everybody's in on that. So there's one particular do his one particular do that speaking Al says that lasting. I remember. I had my drink went to the bathroom came back and Cardi was torque and army, and then that's the last thing. I remember when I woke up there was used condoms on the floor, and a I'm my money was gone eight hundred fifty dollars, but I'm like. So year Matt one because you got rob. So you're mowed it. And to and to can you fiance, and you probably were supposed to be there in the first ways. That's why you didn't wanna go press charges and do all this stuff. This that another and I'm like dude press charges were we talking about about. So she wrote from prison. For president. We'll figure out how to deal with it. There's no prove I mean, more anymore eight hundred fifty dollars. You just got got. Compare her to Bill. Cosby, you got that who you have sex with you who knows if she did our number one, you know, like nice will be taking those strippers cuts. You not supposed to be taking them home. You gotta be antennas up unless you do offer. A this is like my get out. What like you'd moved you? He went to the strip club. So if you've got gotten the process that's part of the game that like nothing better do better if he was at home and kill fiance. Right. You'll never got got. You wouldn't ever got got if he was which of yon say club or nigger like me like can I get in free? Don't mean, a strip club isn't a sad situation. Ten dollars lead with seven. Whole laugh me to get a dalit buying down. Like, I am stingy is no way of one to the strip club with a thousand dollars cash on me. About that life. I'm leaving my ATM card at home. And once we blow up if you can do stuff like. Stuff like that. Now, if I had extra ends, just make it rain. I do it. I go lie. You went to let them pay look. Ari select when we blow up they're gonna pay us through these walk throughs, right? And then employed on our writers going to be like we need to give us two thousand cats just throw out. So we look what we pop it. And then give us another four or five thousand each on the back end. We're gonna make rain. Yeah. Do that. That's what I'm saying ancient money, but I'm I'm making rain, and I'm drinking about I do I will say this though. And I feel like this is real I heard this from Cardi B. She was like strippers entertainers. So why wouldn't you pay them to be entertained, and that makes sense to me like I would give a stripper a lot of money because what she's doing entertainment just like I would give the movie theater a lot of money because what they're doing. Peter pay. Into movies. I didn't pay for everything. I don't have to pay for extra popcorn. I don't wanna pop wanted to pay the comment, but that's your choice. You pay the mission fee to be entertained and see the movie looks theater, and they pay more of an admission fee, and they get all the accrue months that come with being. Yeah, I'm the guys. I and I'm wanting him. Let's down south strip buzzer. Pretty nice. But I'll hear pretty wet is nothing to talk about. So I went to Baltimore close. How were they out there? It was cool down into percents. Iwo be it was just like walk. It's so dangerous was would be wildly wouldn't be. I'll be. Man, but Lazett down south. They haven't barbershops. Buffets smote lounges. One on one real gentleman club. And then it'd be regular people there to like a real club. They have good chicken wings. Come on now with the good buffalo sauce taught to me. So what else you got to? I really have nothing. But do you guys think that when if you're with somebody, and like, you give them things, and then you guys break up that they should give it back to you. The on what it is like if I loaned her rings. No. But she has a lot of Rachel. She didn't get she gave some of them. Athletics is back. They never even made it to the altar. I think you have to do you have to by law. I think you have to because that's like a promising next asure that by Lama is fac. You gotta give fat. Yeah. Yep. Yep. Google it. You gotta give it back fat. If you don't get married, you gotta give back what if you get married. And what are you talking about rain ain't talk among gauging talking about stuff in general, just like if I give you jewelry and clothes, and this that and another gift you jewelry? Do you know if I give your car? Yeah. I want my car back, even if you paid off I will get my car. If is under my name, that's different twin somebody saying is under your name is undermined because that leads you know, where it stands. Now if you got me to put it under your name. And then I can't do I can't do about it. But as long as the my name, and it will be on the Monday on Sorrento for you. So yes, it depend on the situation at the time about. I think that's what we call is doing. What's her name, miss Jackson? Chick with her or they broker no they're together. But I guess she's trying to Floyd for that. I read three million one leeann something. Worth of what's jewelry or something? That he to back or something hit. I have issue with that not on the fact that she won't hurt jury back. But just like if you no longer with him. Another man let it go. Like, why are you bringing that back up Nellie like selling hits like us to? Be trying to keep up your ring. Let's go for we ain't gonna feel like especially because they had a or because it could be hurt. It could be heard Neil you giving her the bread that. She wants you ain't digging allowance like is cool. I can't find better get that three meal. Mayweather ex-fiances until Jackson claims he allegedly stoled three million worth of jewelry from her. They didn't have the best break up to begin with so narrowly took her from floor, right? Can you take something that you can? Can you take something that wasn't cooking? Think Floyd is I'll Nobre, but I'm just saying like yachting had the best break-up if I'm her do. I'm like, why do you keep let it go like go, especially we find like I if I got bread light stop bring like especially in the entertainment field, I stopped bringing this do name Ryan let this go like now. Now, you've got it. All now, you got me looking suspect create all kinds of issues. Now, you got you got pres de talking about I making it like that. Right. Desk. He'll in he'll do like, that's Floyd's IMO is. Okay. I'm a stunt. I'm a stunt which jewelry on video then call you nigga broke all at the same time. Now, that's something. Fifty cent would. Yeah. Hippie on it. I feel like she should've just waited out with Floyd. Why? I mean, that's what she's doing Nelly. Nelly wife are up Floyd got way more bread than Nellie to to before the clown 'cause thinking real life flowing might be clan. Thinking real life Floyd, not a think, I think Floyd clowns for the camera. But I don't think he'd clown. Rely. I do think that he was like on that real like polygamous like year one of many. I like that really. Mega-myths unless they're married, right? This month thing with Floyd, I confront a lotta way he stunt. But at the same time, I'm starting to believe higher by saying he insecure, and that's all he can't do it stunned. Besides that like, yes nothing else to do board. I believe he board. That's why he's talking about as I do ten fighting the. Oh, great was his name. It came out today in Ireland that they're investing investigating him for sexual assault. You think that's why he retired thinking might be connected. Yeah. Thinking might be connected to a Chit because in Ireland is like they have been investigating him for a minute. But they won't say your name unless they're like for sure right that they got a case against because they feel like it's irresponsible to just be nice. Nice man, they need to bring that law here. They do, but it's a whole different dynamic. So they they basically saying like they think I think that might be why he retired 'cause he just came out of nowhere wanna put in. He also has been in trouble with the law a lot too. He had just had arrested with that BUSTER. No, not that he got arrested recently for like slapping, somebody phone there. The. Gravelly? I really do feel like though, like if you make it to celebrity status in this country or in this world, and you got bread to go kill celebrity status that as a. You just gotta like find your one through love and his put on blinders because the quickest way to bring down any man is China when you say that in celebrity status to it. But is is different is hiring is is. Yeah. At at that level. You know, what I'm saying you got so much to lose on a potential rate or sexual assault allegation. And a part is just like you not knowing anything instill caught out. You gotta prove like, look, I wasn't even there. And then I get dry, but it's still late last name on your name. Exactly. So like the only way to avoid that by standing house is just not sleep with nobody stayed in video the only way to avoid it is you might go out, but you like brag out of wife, I'm going back to the wife e every night like you can't slip up because if you slip up eventually slip to the point where you're gonna have to go home and explain to your wife while while you got some type of allegation coming at you Kevin Hart and let man like it used to just be you might get somebody pregnant you gotta pay child support now or at the worst like somebody come out put it into Tableau like your husband, try to rape me. Right. But now, a secular salt is and the secular. Assault. Cry is is taking that like, that's that's you paying money to lawyers you paying money to this. And you ain't working 'cause 'cause you lost. You do magic. These does from like the sixty seventies eighties even early nineties. They was living getting away with what ever. Pay. Hobie wouldn't even have been with. He was if if it was if it happened today. Oh now, I'll know the Lakers would have they would address he would not have been. So well supported keep in mind. He was like going to court and then fly into the game. Like like, nothing happened wife, right next one breath come on now like this metoo air, like get it above the curve, right ahead. The head of the curve because he Magic Johnson. He got the juice. Yeah. Yeah. Be fucking. And now looking now as free looking hill as for Hello businesses. Teams ever suits me whole point. And they say something a say lies controversies hand, and he'd never even really has not yet as for Schober ain't no controversial. Because gotta remember he retired after like ten years in the league. Even a long time. He has good another five six years. Nobody wanted to play with them right before people. I really before the awareness of people just like he's waiting on me. No way you wanna take that. L like that. That was a serious L. He took me in that authored game. Boy got nine hundred points. Like how none of his kids were contract that got it. Wait. He only had one right? How many kids kids he got the little girl boy? And then the other daughter the board and another boy, okay? The other two cookie cookie. Really, I don't know if it's cookie or not. But I know for sure the last one thought the boy was only cookie the boy girl. No, they have a daughter to. Okay. Saying that right with boy girl. I don't say y'all. Well, he doesn't consider his self to be trans genderless. Yeah. You know what I'm saying? He not saying that he. Yeah. He's like he say, I'm just me. I'm seeing seeing the tail red table talk. Yeah. He's like, I'm just me say genderless guy. Get people what they go by. I don't know that he goes by gender big. He says that I'm just me fabulous individual. He says for real. Provocative clothes. Yeah. He do. A is all the time. Yes. Stay beat a beat. And his voice is very stay beat with ball head though, man. What's the the right angles? Look like magic. Cosio had his him in tame, mar when Mark cut our hair when she first shaved her head off. They're saying that they look alike L John movie. Nothing preview threat LA pretty do. Seeing the previews for keeping up with the card national. Movie keep up. Jordan. So I'm watching the the L John preview. John movie. Yeah. Piggyback off last week talking about other that played in the movie. It's like a British. Claims by movie. Man that that opened them you'll Jackson played in in the first one when he was trying to kill or kill half the world. Shave on. We don't talk about why you don't like Will Smith Ono hockey, interrupting me talk about look on John movie open up dialogue from. She chime be go ahead. She owned but open up dialogue for me to talk to nine. Watching L John moving was like man, I wanna see that. He looked at me like what? Like, why are you will see that is kinda Miami that that Rasputin was that one show for acidy home behaving Raza? And know like why are you say that he's like bad? He's gay. But they said it's ticket to the next level now. But he like Dan this game movie. I'm like, look it's a couple of things in there too. So hey, remind me at our whole conversation. We had last week. I was like all right perfect time to talk about this. Basically, I sit now letting no lifeblood you gotta stop doing that. What is he talking about? You got to in the best way that I can't. I'm like man, look, you gotta respect the fact that people don't live the same lifestyle that you live, blah, blah, blah. It's nine out. I put it on myself. I was like lettuce my fault that you probably think like that. Because I've been telling you to turn shows away. Don't do that. I'll like not that I agree with it. But we still gotta respect the fact that is people that live different than us. And you can't just keep point. Now people like desk gay. That's this. Otherwise, you're gonna look at look up on people. Don't think you're homophobic, and add breakdown with that means like, nah, I'm not like that. I just think that is kinda nasty last. Okay. But you keep that to yourself. You know at the point that out. So I had a little proud moment. Why had a breakthrough my son? That's good is wanted to throw that out there. I'm glad you able to to to use that. I wouldn't. I don't know if he ready for the movie now now, I'm I'm I'm one movie. Yeah. Crazy like that is rated R. No. I wanted to see that's high started. I want to see why like that's gay. He was confused. Like why you wanna see that movie? That's the game moving. I'm like dog. Here we go. Talked about you last into that you walk right into way. And then we just had a whole discussion yourself right into that. Because he's looking at me like. You wanna see this? See that bad losing Thome lie men are kept you out of that feared I want that to rub off on my kids. And I was like, I know you're not gonna be there at this. Like, we we love women, but I feel like we need to have. A gay guy on the show. Let's just a just the talk with us any gay guys. I was thinking that too. That's what I'm looking up like. My nephew. I don't think. I know do I know any guys will they case it banks that they get. Grows letting. Out on our show, man. It's funny say space safe-space base 'cause Will Smith is the same way. No, first of all, I'm not saying I'll like Will Smith. I think I explained this the other day there are certain characters that are icon IQ to when you re make a movie you have you can't change that. Character is a cartoon. No. It's not a cartoon. If you notice they made the cartoon. I'm talking about. Original Aladdin is a car time. No. And they may. Look like, Robin Williams. In a cartoon for Lou genie. Yes. But he has like miss was that a Robin Williams and the full Lehrer that Robbins William brought to the role Will Smith is not doing that. How do you know 'cause we'll Smith ain't got Robin Williams flair, but he got Will Smith flare. And that is not the flare you need for the genie. About less myth is pretty that's like if I said they replace James Earl Jones move fossil with Samuel Jackson. Now, you'd been like, Nah, I like some you Jackson. Can't do sim by them. You'll son like move fossil like games Earl. But that's that's where you're there you go with your expectations again where you were you were failing because they're not trying to be like them is a remake which means they're doing it. They are literally remaking the movie the exact same. No. They're not have you seen the preview if the exact same move. No. Yeah. The whole just the movie is the same. But they're definitely putting some new age stuff in there. Because Will Smith is not Robin Williams. Does that have to do with anything? I just said because all these movies. They're remaking. No, you see the jungle book. I did see that. The live action was good the live. I can jungle book was dope. And it was the exact same. As the cartoon version the cartoon. It was the Zach saying it was dope. I was worried all the marines. The bare necessities. What about tumble? I don't remember seeing double as a kid. I don't I think I seen it when I was like five remember young? Young years in. I know it was like like old school old school cartoon David skip the generation or two on no net than about their like that. I don't wanna see that. At least kids nowadays know little bit about the lion. King about the lion. King lion. King is so relevant. Like all those movies are still relevant. Okay. Wait in king, man. Hey, go. There's a lot of movies coming out. I definitely want to see that one movie survey and a little girl. I keep forgetting the name of it the the big talking about. Oh, lisa. It's it's the Ray. Yeah. Would you say I thought she said Lisa Ray? Would you think? Did you think? Right. Either. Difference. You say. S S A ISSA. Okay. Anyway, definitely want that. For fact, easily E S A ISA, right? A? Okay. A tiff. Do I cannot? I've been sick for pass three days. Stick loosely. Okay. Tomorrow. Be my first day back at work. Anyway. The funny thing is I never questioned if he's been home all day or not 'cause you damn near home all day. Anyway, come like what's your day off your day, go to work at had differences use actual use time? Every time. I come. There is rarely a time. I come over here and United. You talking about like one to afternoon. Von chains. Anyway, the whole time I've been home she even watching party of five and driving me crazy. I'm talking about party of five merit to. I don't even know what this show Ken from you. Don't remember party of five. No, I don't it was a show back in the day. Like, the nineteen party Nevio five is about this one family five kids who Peres die in a car accident together. And then they're left to like, you know, raise themselves Balu had me question because I think somebody just came in and somebody who was pregnant and giving away kit. Pas the only reason why been watched bend watching. It is because Netflix is about to take it off of the thirty first and I'm only season through it. I gotta get the season six and they have like twenty something episode season. I don't make it through. I've literally been watch. I haven't watched none of my housewives. I haven't watched no other TV on there. But this no sense. Lot of time. You could be doing some party of five. Another show. I gotta I at least see episodes. I know what party line. No, you don't. It's white people. I love white people. You only need to see also is like they got an older brother who's twenty four. And then. Seasons. Six seasons. Not going to be able to finish it don't twenty leaving on the thirty first of March. You got. Am I have to skip the whole season or two? Though. Anyway, some lady was pregnant and got rid of her baby Hammy thinking light, can you respect that somebody getting rid of the baby like that somebody on the show. Yeah. They'd let you watching this homeless. You don't even know what's going on. Nobody giving any baby on the show as somebody who's pregnant. I don't know. I don't even care. Anyone getting talk about adoption just had me lead to that question. Like is it up for somebody to give the baby up versus raising. They self for most part kit. Don't see it the same way to parent. Do that's not always the end of the story. But in most cases, like you say most cases, and a lot of cases that you see on TV. I'm going off my TV, and I met a couple people as they feel like they're missing something that they never they never. They all told you that. I'm like, oh say names, but they feel like they missing something that he's making that up for the sake. Interesting. Listen, busy. He's making me. They missing something. And like I'm saying is it selfish for the parents to give it up instead of doing it themselves. Do you guys think it is? Oh, right. You. That's a vague in Matt. Not. Yes, or no. It's not a yes. Or no. How you tell me is. Yes, or no question because I'm telling you, you gave your baby why did you do this health is? But that's what I'm saying to you is not selfish me to keep you from able to take care of you. We struggle together. Why should be here? Don't wanna struggle. What they parents a lot of I can tell you. What are you talking about the struggle? And the thing called child endangerment. Because of struggle is. So real different when you took it away. But go. Goal is the Keeble. If you're in the situation where you know, you can't take care of your cow. And you say I'm gonna take care of my child anyway, and they your child is taking away because the child endangerment, you tell your kid. I more damage you just fuck your kids like worse. Now, they in the system of going from everywhere and the certificates are clear like you have a higher probability of being jailed being addicted not graduating going through the system then through adore. You could win the door through door doctrine is like being in the system too. Do not just add like little house waiting. So my income. Plus you getting a Dopp, which means that I'm saying I want you to be mine doctor. That's your kid is no going for house thinking about fostering. Have orphanages. No more says. Like nineteen. Options to really did get home like a little camp about the play. Point over there. As pick them up and go, but real talk, you know. Especially if you like a little baby like why babies and sold demand right now is like if you was white person that you had a baby and wanted to give it up for adoption like it's a line of folks waiting black children like a lot of black children do end up in foster care, but orphanages do not exist. No more. They don't know. Not just foster. Well, I think Arvin is exist like overseas fully timeout. If. Kid, maybe. I want to give them my kid. And I can't find them foster parent, then I'll put them in a no if you compare if I can't find adopted parent, then I'll put them in foster care, if you give the rice she'll kid then the hospital will contact shower for services and you'll kill will immediately. Go into foster care unless there's already in the doctor of family waiting. But there's so many different types of adoptions nowadays though, too that the open option sorta foster cares when they go into a home. And just right. So the be it a B foster Hillary folk that that specialized Pacific Lii in temporary care and you have homes specialized specifically in like infant care. So you'll go to that home. But the minute you go into the home. They're already putting you in the system, and they're trying to find either a family that's willing to adopt Hugh FOSS or foster family that can be like semi permanent. So you'd be semi permanent foster parent. Well, foster parents are not permanent things it all depend can adopt. You they wanted to. But the whole point of fostering children is just to do that just a foster them until they find placement as a foster family can say like I like this kid. I wanna keep this. Kid roads kid or the foster family could just be like, man. Like, I I can't handle this kid come get them. And then also they could be like there for hell years, and maybe they pull them out. Right. And you attached to the kid? They don't just they don't just come. And just arbitrarily like, hey would just gonna pull that that. I give notice like, hey in three months saying, they don't really arbitrarily because they're so difficulty. Like, why would you take a kid out of a stable invited? You're not putting them into a permanent situation. That's all. That's what people be trying to fight with the government. What are you just talking? Right. You guys. I can't. I'm just saying like. Like. Saying I ain't even that. But I'm just saying that people like, I'm real tall. I thought people like have problems with foster kids, so long attached. And then they wanna pull them out and put them in different type of irony are pull them with a different family that wanna permanently adopted them the that can happen. Left would it. The second part. Yes. Permanent situation. Exactly. But I want the kid like is like no like. The kid saying why you understand I get that. But I'm saying if somebody else already adoption process before no foster, parents, they wouldn't they wouldn't take the kid out your home and give the kid somebody else. Like, first of all whatever adoptive family one at that kid. They would have to come to your house to see the kid the whole nine yard. And they will tell you like, hey, there is a family interested in Dopp this kid would you like to adopt a kid the kid. For so long. And if you say, no, my then they out there. I mean, you gotta understand that kid represents cash. So when you say, yes, I will adopt this kid the cash. Yeah. Who? As a hard. So there's a necessity for the the the system to get the kid adopted because that means they no longer have to support the kid financial. I get you NFL matter foster parents saying like I really wanna keep the kid. But I don't wanna adopt a kid like not like NASA bass with a problem come through. So they saying like I want to keep this kid. 'cause I know I heard situations like that excuse me. But I can't afford it to to adopt them. Right. And then that's the case it came to light will. About Americans going overseas to adopt. I mean, I think it's easier. I have issues with it. Because there are so many children in America knees. Adoption many and to me I feel like when you decide to go over seas. You you have made the adoption process. Exotic and you have you have taken on this savior mentality. I'm gonna go. I'm gonna go. Adopt a kid therm war third world and bring them here and be their savior. And and to me, that's where you as a doctor parent have positional self to kind of be this individuals. Got you're expecting that individual to like reverence you because like I saved you from you've been thinking about this. You only one thing about it versus that's a good answer like the top of your dome. I mean, it's part of what I do as a career. No, I think I think also shiny this you paint, your toenails. No ain't got a pedicure mine. It's nice fun. Painted that. Now I seen that. But I didn't get a pain and she just buffing got like a cool clear coat on. Hey, how you feel about them going overseas? You brought it up. I don't know. I just feel like there's so many like you say kids here in the unit. A heard way more difficult over here to get a kid versus going overseas. And sometimes you should hear that from Donna. I think it is. Why? If got you've got if you've got money go overseas they lie here. Take him is way harder to get paperwork. Judas bring a kid to the states. You gotta get paid. Where you gotta go through is birth. There's nothing about the doctrine profane. Sapid like, I'm making this up. Dr. Like. Making me think I hurt hurt. No, madonna. His name Madonna song like version got him. No, say name, another one. 'cause I guess. Bread. Really thought it'd be easier. Go overseas, it'd be like that one pull him back. Let's go that cut and dry ain't that is easy to get a marriage sitting on this topic. He he he really he really not easy to marry somebody from overseas that's a process to. Easy. We know somebody who gone through that couldn't marry couldn't get her. They could marry with her husband. Yet is he warrants over there? But what I'm saying? It's like a whole process. They have to go to they have to like go through interviews to make sure that we're not doing this just for citizenship like what's his favorite color? What's the whole? What do you guys? Do you insure your real deal? Just let anybody any ninth states now priority. I did. Obama now. Everybody come on come off. What else we go talk about me? Good.

Don't wanna be that involved that this is my day. Lashed back. I need you in my dance routine. I know we used to call out my bad dancing. I needed to make an example out of someone. Thanks. I I've been waiting to nerd out for this for a long time. Let's steal any high Angelique was on. But I saw she was on the show before Angelique marvel. The thank you for being on the show love hero. But Angelique was on before. I saw caps marvels that when they came back and have anyone in nerd out without it. It's me you with you learning out. What did you think I liked it? I thought people were stupid for not liking it. Well, men there's like to clear about them one guy who got a scary story and Gent we'll go we'll get back to you marvel and it's good. We'll need a captain marvel after that there is a guy who was arrested for attempting. He had he was going to he had plot plotted to kill three women that he worked with and he had like. Scary ass murder rape kits in his car. But but he didn't do it. So it's good. They caught him in tie. But one woman reported that her lift driver was taking her the wrong direction driving down a dark path in he locked the doors. But eventually she was able to get out of the car, and she talked to it was either Uber lift one of those probably Uber. I don't give a fuck. No. 'cause lift is a little is known as the better service is the better service. Got you bars. Like the fans your name like Uber is a weird company Saab using them use layers lipped. So there goes that sponsor, but so anyways, they didn't refund her anything. They didn't track down. The driver turns out it was that same guy. Oh, no. So when you use lifts send that link to somebody what I do that with you. You always know where I'm going good because then you can see where you're going. You can see where you're going, and you can also like someone else also knows where you're going. Also, check the license plate. Don't just get your name. Check, the license plate makes it a license plate matches up because you got that from the view because I watched it one day talking about it. I've been watching the view. I was wondering hate Megan McCain really didn't get something. She does some fucking hate her. She sucks do which is on T issues. She's okay. So what she still sucks them. Choose route to my my love joy Behar. She's fruit a lot. I say good though. Good. They'll see it. Like, it's usually like Mondays she's a little as you can see when she's getting on the chair, and she takes a long time to get into the chair and she's yelling grumpy face. Science great things like oh like, yeah. But like, I think there is the thing that I like I said this before I can at least she's not Trumper, and I can lad his bottom barrels. It's been like, well, at least they're not, you know, the child molester. Very true. What do you not to eat probably at that? But yeah. Yeah. Now what he's saying? But anything Abby is also kind of conservative. She's tends to be Leitch in the middle of the ground. Lady were all she says. I just think this is I don't mind her. Okay. But Megan McCain this. It's not. Yeah. Megan McCain because she's hooking conservative in that irritates me. But she's also just the bench. And I hate calling her that that's rude. A lot of our listeners are going to be like, no. It's going to be mad Nick back. Sorry, guys. But she's just rude. And she's not nice, and she talks over people. And she says like mean things she just seems like she's been rich. I do she knew what she Elvis you even interest. Like, what do I know him a rich white lady? I've have I appreciate that. I have heard her say that before I appreciate fab, but there are certain like like, she does like I said like if seen certain I can't think of an instance right now, but there are certain things where she does at least understand like that. She's all of those white people who doesn't think that racism still exists. Like, she does get it to like GI like a younger. She gets it racism is that there's no colorblind. Yes. But she she loves her guidance. She loves Ronald Reagan and small taxes, and she's a hard core meal any of that. Oh, but. Captain marvel hero by we're back. Tell me tell me about your thoughts and feelings about captain marvel had a great time watching it. I had it makes me really sad. I really do present that. Well, it makes me sound like there's just these dudes who are just kind of. You said those ladies, but what I've noticed is like a lot of white, dude. Trolls out there who there's already had a bad rap. It for anybody even seen the move. Oh, yeah. They had to shut down run tomatoes pre reviews. And so it's interesting is that now this movie has made it so rotten tomatoes. It's changed the way that they allow you have to have seen the movie I says come out first before audience members can vote for news away, the obscene it before. And I don't know how they verify that. But like, I dunno evolve seems like YouTube also has changed some of their stuff like the way that they're 'cause a lot of times suffer like apple with the female Ghostbusters that lay people just hate on it. And then it already has all this negative stuff before it even comes out. Right. I thought what I loved about. It is that like she doesn't have there's no love interests. Okay. We'll get to that. There's no seemingly dude male interest. Okay. It is a movie about like there's like like women female relationships. Yes. A female mentor. I love the twist of who an Benning turns out to be like that we competed on a catamaran. So I know all the players that are here. So I could pretend I read comic books. Yes. Get the gist of it. But it's it's fun because you could see who they Margaret has a really good job of like taking these stories and on their head spoiler. Spoiler spoilers. But in the comics, the scrolls are terrible awful people their shape Shifter's. They actually sparked the called secret wars where they I cannot take over people and nothing, and I played they don't do anything too crazy gets in a respectful very much introspective away. And like how we're going to tell the story now, I love Gemma Chan she was in it rocking it out as mine. On like, I love her British accent. I love it. Yeah. I want just more of our. I hope she comes back for more. I guess except that I don't like the Cree. Oh, wait, Terry Albin, very crease. But in the comics, here's another spoiler to captain marvel. And so it seems like people thought that's what was going to happen. But the schools are actually at like sort of the refugee cheese is sort of a beautiful misunderstood refuge witches verbally for right now. Because fuck in Trump won't let refugees come in. When refugees are just looking for a place to go because their home countries are fuck does. Apparently our country is full. That's what he said. He said our country is full Bucky O go fuck off. Fuck yo. I can't even handle anyways. Yeah. Captain. Oh, oh, and I also just love the relationship between her and a woman that she's very get to that in a minute because I want to break that into it right now. I can't talk about her. It's about this. Well, let's talk about Monica Rambo. Oh, but before that, the reason I wanted to bring a the reason that I feel like a lot of people were like blasting this movie is because we've been spoiled. Yes, we've been held spoiled. We haven't had an origin story in a while. Black Panther is our most recent origin story kind of them. Yeah. And it was extraordinary off the chain one of the best marvel movies it was Oscar nominated. So it's kinda hard to follow that up with another origin story. Very true. Visit a great job following it's better than half of the origin story. It ten years ago is better than Thor Thor the dark world the first cops in America. I would say it's better than the first doctor strange. Yes. It's it's actually I agree with you, even so we've been spoiled in. It's a good fucking fucking movie. And I feel like people need to fucking in. It's the same thing with Star Wars. I feel like fan boy culture needs to come fuck down in realize that you've been spoiled in no matter how you slice. Sit in origin movie when you're introducing a character unless you're fucking Ryan, Kugler and your genius. It's not gonna happen. It's gonna be a good movie a solid movies all movie because you're starting it up. You've got to learn and actually funny because I feel like for an origin movie. I felt it was so jam packed with so much never felt slow right? Because they started it doesn't. It's not linear. Yes. In the middle of action. Excellent job. I thought it was great. I'm bree. Larson's amazing. Pre licensed great. I do feel like she was given a hard task. Oh, yeah. Because it's kind of hard to be somebody who lost your memory became a warrior, and then to give blight to that character. Right. She did a good job being very like I'm blank, blah, blah, blah, which is kind of hard to act yet. Totally. So I kind of feel for her in that I feel like she did a good job doing what she was given. Monica rambo. Yes. That they just didn't go forward and said that they were partners. It does look like when you watch the movie it looks like because she has a daughter Monica has a daughter and the daughter is basically like, hey, mom. In America, which she comes back. Yeah. Yeah. Like there and they were living with each other. They celebrated holidays they're wearing matching outfits and all the pictures. Yeah. It's literally the three of them in pictures. It's like just go there, you know, sort of circling around does. Yeah. So when I say there was no love interest. There's no blatant Lovin for almost wish it would would've added a new dimension. Because this is the ninety s as a don't ask don't toe and their military our military. So I think that that would have been beautiful if it was like, we couldn't talk about this love. Yeah. And then also to be like a surrogate mom to daughter, which is gonna probably play in later the comic book while in so Monica Rambos daughter in the comic books becomes a she's several names. And then she's captain marvel which is fitting marvel movie. Yeah, she's photon. And like what's great is? Because it's in the nineties, which means of that daughter is all grown up now ready to fight who's playing her. They haven't custody yet. Exciting know, I feel like I should play her should all now. No, you're not you're right on target in the nineties. I was. Yeah. You were her age. Now, you're too young if anything no I'm too I'm too old. But. We like to cast all the older actors that we went to like, yeah. I can play twenty nine easily. I would push it to twenty seven. Wow. Thanks. You really three years really pushing it. Thank you. Let's not do what we could agree. Out ninety two because you had a big, I'm a broken woman. That's not. I don't think that oh other random Sifi. No. Yeah. Shell yo. Yeah. Love her. She's in the new Star Trek highly recruited to wads CBS all access gets you girl. I got someone's password. It's get a pen. On the. Oh, good. See I've talked about the new Star Trek. If you're not watching it, please watch it. So where does he missile access worth it? What you can do is get a subscription for a hot minute. Yeah. Then cancelling because I light zone. I watched the first one on YouTube, and there's a new tip to everyone is I want you to it episode Asana law thin, and she is not binding. Assad. I love her. She is so good. If by behind it. But I thought about it a lot. Yeah. And she's a really great one of those zone episodes. I think we'll stick with you for a good while because the first one's kind of in this one is like classic twilight zone with you. I love really good. Okay. Back to captain marvel or Michelle Yeoh. Okay. You look at these besting dolls for stations. But Michelle Yeoh is going to be in the new avatar sequels. Which were they because it was like, I don't think they're ever going to come. They're not because they keep getting pushed back. The type about ten years ago, you know, the Winchester mystery house. Yes. So for those of you that don't live in the bay area. There's a Winchester mystery house a woman who owned Tiffany Lampley think she went crazy. No Winchester, she cons. Oh, I don't know if either typically guns. She was written Sherry different biding, your time building lamps or garden, she continuously built his house forever. And it's slowly went crazier and crazier. We're like stairs lead into like doors that lead into walls movie, starring Cape, Blanchette know, Helen Mirren, I get them confusing times two wonderful actresses way. But sometimes I'm like, which one of them was in the one don't watch documentary now because it has both of them anyways. You're like I can't be so confused so computer, ones younger anyways. So. This is James Cameron's Winchester mystery house, right? Yeah. He's just going crease. And like we're ready for is like, it's not ready. He's digging and digging and digging in and 'cause like I was saying to my cousin. I was like, well, what are they gonna do for the plot? Because the first one was Vern. Golly pocahontas. And I'll tell you this firm golly to poke on his too terrible movies. So if he's a child with nothing else to do. I will give you that. They're terrible plot. So if he's gonna try to mind, those plots, and all I ever say is of icy all of a sudden these blue avatar people back in Europe would dresses on trying to fit in. But that's the true story for Pocahontas, though. And I just curious if that's what they're going to have some bad news for you. So James Cameron do ready cooked himself into a corner because you know, Disneyland or Disney World created advertising the other ready for which is apparently takes place after all the movies. Oh, which the movies are supposedly about a war between the avatar people in humans trying to mind it. So clearly since there is the avatar world, which takes place after the war's. He gotta have that these spoiled it for himself. He's spoiled themsel-, but how many more like as a lot of movies? Also, like, it's like a JK Rollings situation where it's like these better be good because you know, put yourself into high now. I watched that crimes, Chris, krislindahl terribly. The theory. I thought talking about sex stuff about these characters and then like not showing it which is like Lou day gay like, oh, can we see that? No, no. You don't need to actually know. She's coming on saying, they're gay. But then all the other people who are making the move. You're like no censor because she's trying to recon it by being like, actually, they had a heated passionate affair. I kind of see where that is going on that boring us long convoluted movies. Johnny Depp sucks up casting him in again. Again. Yup. Oh, we both have the fingers lung as you see crimes of Grisons dolls now. But I watched the first one and the second one gets I was there for Zoe Kravitz. Wither like. Michelob commercials. I love her on that. You know, JK rolling is a novelist modest screenwriter neglect. She so rich that she'd no one's there to tell her. No, no JK. This is boring. Did he write the screenplay? She's been writing them herself. She needs to stop the world is over you in your work. Yes. Okay. Well, we're going to. No, I meant like the world the Harry Potter world the baller. Wait. I have my one client about to marvel. A complaint is a special place in. Okay. Do you know my complaints about catching marvel accents were all over the place with I thought they were all from the no 'cause Jude law had a British accent? Because we're in the galaxy far far away half of the crease ended American half of them sounded British. She wanted to have a cre- accent? So you can pick up with an Lila. No. I'm just saying why did also one of the scrolls have an Australian accent because they're interested. I don't explain it their intergalactic, basically, we're like just use your voice, that's fine. Because dion. That I cannot degree. That's what the school sounds like put a. That. To study. Why IBS Crowley? Like, yeah, that's fine with petty worth. That's great. Did you you didn't notice that? I was captivated by the pays gonna marry him. The groundbreaking storage howling. I was just to also I know that that humans here were different colors. Like, you know, obviously, we're Brown, and there's wide open those different. Are they blew are. They watch some of them are like are they in Geneva because Jude law spoiler we've been split on this ship forever. Sorry, guys. I, but yeah, he's a cre- and some some cruiser like half cre- like there's a free on agents of shield via. She's like sent out to be issues a Hugh was looks human. But she's like half cre-. Okay. Because Annette Benning too. Yeah. Yeah. Nope. Total. Oh, no. Ever who cares? Okay. Well spoiler alert. We're going to talk to a neck after the break. I'm a guest. Hi, it's Aleka cash. One of the cast members of mission to six new addition to the max fun network. We're blown away by the welcome. We received from Mexico and listeners telling us you've discovered the show binging at card supporting us during the drive and just been grad. Humans all around vision physics is improvised, obsessively sound design scifi comedy epic flung a group of embassador as they explore the end of space. I've played Dr that fell foot tall Omni sexual security officer with free skills chess talent in a series of slaps in shoots that are four. You'll figure it out we lighted. You join our crew aboard the aging sentient starship of our Jerry Jade, as we traveled Zik squadron meeting all sorts of weird aliens played by brilliant, guests comedians that mission desserts. Z Y accident. Down K, Billy. This is still on like, your your guest has, you know, two months, baby. This is what I'm used. Well, they were guest co host. I. Sillier gas. I made it very well may no one can fill these shoes knows we're gonna kick it out. But because it's been such a long time. It's you know, I've been doing why was going to say it a little bit nicer adding to win now. And that gay the clearly I'm why also wild woman I've been cased inside for a minute. I've actually had I have to think my and my other family members were watching the baby at the also think Andrew who's watching the baby right L A's. Yeah. Right now. He's earned his thank you as we speak. Yes. And way more before that. Oh, yes. But. So I have been able to get out of the house, which is good. But it has been probably in this is not hyperbole. This is probably been the toughest two months of my life. Yeah. Pregnancy was hard. And I'll tell you. I'm so happy. I'm not pregnant anymore. Yeah. I'm still fucking happy. I'm not pregnant anymore. Some people are just being pregnant pregnant. No. I hate it. I don't like being pregnant, and it's okay. It's okay. To hate being pregnant, totally fine. You had a lot of like, nausea. Yeah. I had a lot of nausea. I went through depression a lot of people like postpartum depression. It's a serious thing that happens to women after they give birth. They go through huge hormones shifts, and it causes depression to kick in and not like clinical depression for me it happened during pregnancy. So during my first trimester, I had Perry pardom depression where I was like in a deep asshole in think you knock on wood. Because I've had enough to deal with after being pregnant that I don't have the switch back in because there's been so many things just like, Nope. We're not gonna let you be depressed. You'll have time. There's a lot of pressure from women to women about how to give birth. How to be a mom how to be pregnant? There's a lot of judgment. There's a lot of talk. Everybody thinks they're way is the best way. And I really want to be the person to go out there and say on the record fucking stop that women. Do it your own way. You're however, you can do it you, you know, works for you. Right. And I'm every child also different. Yes. So I know it's so easy to go on the internet. The internet is wonderful thing. But you go on there you get into a trap. You see other people talking about this waste business ways. Not best, blah, blah, blah. And then you cycle through it, and it really fucks up your psyche. And I want everyone who's going through thinking about going through to know that whatever way you're doing to survive is the best way, you know. There's there should be no judgment. If you're gonna breastfeed great. If you're gonna use formula, great, if you're gonna use both excellent whatever you can do the keep that baby alive. Do it. If you are going to have a C section because you have to have a C section great. If you're going to vaginal birth your child. Great, whatever you need to do to get that baby out of you healthly healthily is the best way. But also there's a higher percentage of c sections in America, which is causing the maternal death rate to rise in. I wanna revisit that America has the highest maternal death rate in developed nations right in the problem for black woman. Right. Two hundred forty three percent higher for black women Sampson Kamala Harris because she's talking about that. Yes. And I have first hand knowledge that I know I can see how it happens. I can one hundred percent see how it happened because of everything that I talked about before on the podcast, which you can listen to before about my treatment during my pregnancy. And I'm in northern California, which has really low maternal, and it's like, you know, the bay in Oakland where you'd think like everyone is so chilling cool. The though the show anyway it happens anywhere. It happens. All the time to I had an I still do I have postpartum pre eclampsia in pre eclampsia during pregnancy and postpartum pre eclampsia are kind of the same thing. Postpartum like more of a mystery because it actually deals with your placenta, and I don't have a placenta anymore. So it's kinda weird, but the symptoms are literally the symptoms of pregnancy. And are literally the symptoms of postpartum. Wow. So it's easy to just beat pass it off in think like, oh, I'm fine. Right. And then you die literally in a little bit more. What what is pre clamps? Yeah. Yes. So pre eclampsia is a condition that you get when you're pregnant it's still kind of mystery because signs women who cares. But it's what they've determined. It's a sickness of the placenta essentially, you have really high blood pressure. You're not able to regulate your blood pressure and it spikes when it shouldn't. So generally like, let's say you're James is living his life walking down the street. And you spill your coffee on yourself. Oh, it's high. You're upset. So your blood pressure goes up a little bit. Yes. If you have pre eclampsia, it would jump bike, a spike. So you're not able to regulate it. So that is the problem with pre clamps. They don't know what really caught what causes that. They think it's something that has to do with the placenta, but I don't post-partum pre eclampsia is super rare because you don't have placenta anymore. But they think it's the lack of placenta. So my body was like, I love the thing. I'm not I'm not then it takes away. And they're like, no. But yeah, me so now like for pre eclampsia giving birth is literally the prescription you give birth. You don't have pre cliffs anymore, supposedly. Well, I remember when you told me that you hot it, the first time I ever heard of the name proclaims. Yup. Downton abbey and that was back in the day. And she that's one of the beloved characters spoiler. But she dies pre clamps. Yeah. It made me so nervous. And scared when you told me that so so the thing is and. That's kind of a misconception on downton abbey. Heavies part. You don't die a pre eclampsia you die of high blood pressure organ failure seizure or stroke Jesus. All of terrible. Because having down right now. I'm looking gets a nice, surprisingly alcohol's. Good. Okay. Is it lows my blood pressure that wine? It literally causes high blood pressure, which causes you to not get blood pumped to certain Oregon's which causes organ failure. It causes one of your Oregon's that it doesn't pump to his your brain though, you need that stroke seizure, all of those things, and it is a condition that increases the longer. It's unchecked. So that's where a lot of the death comes in. They don't check. They don't even think they think, oh, I'm having postpartum depression, but it's actually pre clamps. Yeah. It's like, so my I had symptoms, and I didn't know it. I my feet swell to balloons. But like after you give birth you look up in a goes feet swell. Like, okay. Yeah. I'll have a really bad headache. Oh, that's probably because I had spinal tap during my C-section. And I thought that I had some drainage, which is another thing because it was probably the worst headache. I've ever had in my life free clamps. Yeah. So what would? Happen in a normal circumstance. Is you go in you say these things they go pre clamps yet was test you, and then they they fix it. Right. But what's happening on other parts of the world and the country was just country. US black women go in and people assume black women are stronger. That's the assumption. Black women are strong. They can handle it. They have a higher pay intolerant. Sucked up. Which is why the strong black women trope is killing black women. They go in they say they sings in the doctor goes, you're fine. I have a hidden bias. I think black women are strong that woman dies in a couple of days because of heart failure. So I looked out. I thought I had an infection. I thought my incision was infected, but it wasn't it was just swollen. But I went in to get checked out. I thought it was going to be a dumb appointment. I didn't wanna go I lucked out to fold that my mom was there. I looked out threefold that I had a black. Doctor. You saw me he's going to say you have a black lady doctor. No, it I actually 'cause I was taking whoever. Okay because it was emergency. Just let me go in and see look at this. It was a black guy. Doctor, and I'm not saying that any other doctor ABC's looking at something from a difference wherever lend because he doesn't really have that pie this as much to commend him. Because for me going to a male gynecologist was a little like, I don't wanna do that. But on the view. I was like, oh, but I had to check my own bias because he was great. He was perfect. He was excellent. He told me everything he was like your incision is fine. You need to do this Bubba. Here's some other things that you need to think about by the way. I can't let you go home because your blood pressure's too high. You have to check into emergency right away. Okay. And that's what I did. And apparently my blood pressures were dangerously low have severe postpartum pre all my gosh. If I didn't go in. I probably could have had heart failure in the next couple of days. I could have died. I literally could have taken like you side is a happen to spike that like you said like, you a crying baby baby. I mean things are so many stresses that are happening while well, I think God and all of her infinite, wisdom and beautiful design that jihad all these wonderful things that happen. Thank you. Yeah. I'm I'm I'm so lucky I'm so happy. I have to give. Shadow to my stepsister who forced me to go into the hawk at check out for the swollen incision. She. I was like I don't go fuck that. I don't want that. She was like go. Yeah. You need to just go. What I think that's also thing too. I think sometimes we we we think that we again because life is so busy, but multi this like you're never too busy to take care of yourself. Other things C-sections are fucking brutal. Someone saw into you and taking out a baby inside of you. Yes. Wow. Sidebar a neck this once so I have a cousin who was also in the hospital, and I can't in my because we're both pregnant around the same time did not have the same day. No. But I remember when he was in the hospital in mom texts me and says that my cousin. She also is in the same as also having birth that day as soon as out but in that game in the same hospital, which is what we thought up until today. Yup. That's what we thought we like. Okay. Oh, maybe like, Pat like, oh, how funny I'll small. World is that it gets crazier. So Jim sits down and he brings us up again. And then I was thinking I was like there's only so many women that I saw and there is one black woman, and I asked about her spouse and James Caan confirmed in I go, oh, she's the one that bumped me for my C-section yacht. My cousin does went right ahead. Because my mom, or my mom told me that she had an emergency c section, and that's what I'm gonna happen is. So I had a schedule C section because I have fibrous aids literally up until fifteen minutes. I was about to go in. And then they're like, Nope. We have an emergency. And they bumped me for five hours. But I'm glad that it worked out. That's fucking small world that so crazy. It's so good c sections are crazy. They bring you in. Right. And you're like all strapped up right in like, they put you under girding, and they were playing reggae music. Which was cool. I kind of helped me out your of the Caribbean and your yeah, it is. So full woman team is shot to rhymes, right? I know the sudden rhymes cast your your immerse Fulham and team presented his working. It was so cool. They were playing music. They all were there. They're like, oh, hey, you could totally feel like it was like a work environment. They're like, hey, look him comes down. And they like did all the things I was terrified. I follow. Where you nervous. I was nervous. Also, I've been waiting for like six hours, and you're just like ready ANSI as hell I was like shit done already. So I'm sitting they strapped me in India's not allowed inept, I. Yeah. They bring them in later because they wanna make sure that they get like the epidurals. Everything like in which is like terrifying because they had to put a needle into your spying? And then they put the curtain up. So you don't see what's on the other side. You're not completely known. Right. That's the other thing that I hate. But of course, it's necessary because I didn't want me that numbness, numb me, not me over. But can you imagine having dead weight from your your nips down? Words after they say you ever just like just arms and teddy round clopping around like, Manny more. But you can feel it. So you feel them like tugging push it in stuff which made me throw up a couple of times because it was just so gross. 'cause they're look inside of you. Yes. So they take two injuries right here next to me by my head. And really does you know hanging in doing anything, and it goes by pretty quick they open it up. And then they go. Okay. The baby's born. And they flip down the curtain real quick. So you could see the baby being held up to the light. She has her eyes open, and he's just like staring like, oh my God that's been in me on and they bring the baby over to you. And they put her on your face. And you're just like, yeah. Hey, maybe all my God. And then they take the baby over to the side of the room. Yeah. And they're like dad, you wanna come cut the umbilical cord and hang out with the baby. And he's like, yeah. And so I'm laying there like I'm in. I'm like, right Z crazy. But you know, I'm just playing so I look I'm looking over at angel with the baby I'm like, oh, that's so sweet. And then I see Andrew look at me. He smiles in his eyes travel down. Oh, no, don't look. And then his eyes go dark, and then he looks back at me. And he looks back at baby starts playing with baby later tells me it was like it was like one of those surgery shows like full open. They had an organ out. So he was like literally I saw them. So you from the inside. And so you from the house. That's her that's wile. They have the sheet over so you don't have to see that. Wow. And it's my liver. I don't even know what that is. Oh guys inside about south. They do that for a reason because Dr. Thank you. And then here's a scary part fell later that I am right. I hemorrhaged during the surgery, and we got they did a good job of just keeping you just like they're like. Her them like talking about things like, oh, what are you gonna do this weekend steps? Meanwhile, they're probably like. It's I I've watched fifteen seasons of Grey's anatomy, accounting. Yeah. You're describing Grey's anatomy. This is while they really beautiful young women. Like, it was really nice. They pull down the curtains when I'm also up in stuff in like deadweight blood splashed on the. Oh everywhere. Was that Europe is where to come from. They said you allied during the surgery, apparently, I was like sprinting places by God, you know, I just like on Grey's anatomy. I thought she was just doing TV make believes John. No, he'll Sean. How's she got her notepad? She washed her hands and gotten some scribes and took a sterilize pen and took some notes it was wild. It was wild. And then every once in a while played flop one of my dead ass, wait legs over to see if I was like getting blood out. Okay. Langer up. Hey, this still do it. It's thing this still working. All right cocoa. All right. We good keep cutting. It's a mess, man. Everybody's like oh c sections fine. You'll be fine. You'll just go in. And then you leave a shit show written by Ryan Murphy told you I'm a hardened veteran. Now, I have not seen them shit. But I felt some shave been through some I was at the doctor the other day. I was like still kinda hurts on this side. And she's like, oh, yeah. That's where we put a lot of our knots after we sold you up knots, like sewing knots ties of your organs develop. Oh my God. Okay. So now, I'm here to have a beautiful baby GS, and they didn't excellent job. I have a little incision. Not little it's a pretty big incision. But I'm upright. I'm moving of do. You wanna know the craziest part? I don't know. Do I guess goes kids? Gonna learn you all are go ride with gave out to listen, you do to the first time I stood up. The next day the nurse comes in and choose like, how's your numbness, unlike doing better? I can feel my legs. Everything's going. Okay. She was like, I'm gonna have you stand up. Like, okay. She's like just to warn you. You're gonna fill all your organs fall. Dan. Oh, no, tell me you stood up and you felt nothing felt that shit. Oh, but it wasn't. It was just like in felt like why? Oh, 'cause your organs rolling moved around inside there. That's the thing that people don't really think when you have a surgery like there's little people like poke it around. Been digging around. Boop. Boop juggling. This a t to grow your time tonight. All looking at scoring. Put that away you're doing greenfield. Dumb. Oh, wow. Okay. Well, all right. Everybody at babies. Welcome back in there. Hello. This is Amy man. And I'm Ted Leo. We podcast called the art of process. We've been lucky enough over the past year to talk to some of our friends and acquaintances from across the creative spectrum to find out how they actually work, and so I have to write material that makes sense and makes people laugh I also have to think about what I'm saying to people for kick your ass on make you famous the fight to get LGBTQ representations in the show. We weirdly don't know as many musicians as you would expect really just became a political speechwriter by accident of realizing that I have accidentally hope my pants down at listen and subscribe at maximum fun dot org, or wherever you get your podcast. The Guinea pig was complicit in helping the scientists. Former boy I'm a little bomb, but we'll have to table at for next week. But we have to come back to surviving R Kelly, and we'll talk about that next week. We will because there's just too many things for us to catch up on the we just couldn't get it onto one on episode. I know lake mayor piece I wanna talk about air Pete mayor Pete Buddha. Jay, I I can say his name. Now, you know, why have a hard time? They've had it on the view. So many times he just keeps coming back. He's one of the three every time. Maybe McCain likes him. Oh, I don't like her. I don't care. Care says it out to these reading. And here's the thing. I think is really interesting me mayor mayor p I even people in my family who are just like. Oh, yeah. Like, even they are like it's interesting that like people are able where we are tree that like people aren't so hung up on that. He's gay. Yeah. I just even myself like I realize what a difference. It makes it just really, I don't know. It's been me even feel I love being a homosexual and things are great. But like even just having someone being that limelight even me as a grown ass man whose loves himself. Yeah. It's helped me stand a little taller good. And I like how it's not his like bang. I'm the gave us like, and I had I mayor Pete. And I'm getting yeah. Thirty seven thirty seven young. I want a warrant Buddha J ticket. Oh, though Harris for her. I like Harris. I do you know what I'm still very I can't wait to hear the debate. Yeah. True. I also really excited. Marianne Williamson was just how to town hall on CNN yesterday, which just makes me excited that she's in the conversation. She's yeah. She's a political outsider. She's not even you know, she's never held political office. She's moved down to Iowa she's doing the caucus thing and she's rowing sleeves and getting in the game. Yeah. Highly recommend watch Tom hall. She was the first person to mention reparations I count as one of the breakfast club. She was talking about it that went viral and since then other candidates have been talking about. I love that. I'm really I'm really into Warren right now because she's standing full force hand in hand with congresswoman, Omar. Oh, yeah. Which I think a lot of candidates, including our democratic leadership. Nancy Pelosi are not doing and I want to see more of our candidates doing that. And I don't know if Harris has done that or not. Somebody correct me if she has gone, I really hope she has what I am really grateful for it. And I've been I haven't donating money left and right to all kinds of candidates because I will like a lot of essentially they have to have a certain amount of donors from each state onto the political debate sage like, I gave dollar I gave a dollar Houlihan. I'm Castro because I think it's important to have all these voices on that debate stage in that conversation because it just gonna make whoever the top candidates. There's gotta be adopt all of these policies in the only way that Hopkins of these policies and up on that state or heard her it's so true. We just got that little quick political. Right. Bo Rebecca grew. We are by and that case. Have you back end? So monitor issue too. A thing to all of you for listening. Thinks. Yes, thank you. You've been so wonderful. We love you.

Welcome to this is only a test, the official podcasts of tested. DOT, com. All right. Not Bad pretty good. Even thank you Jeff Anderson for creating that theme music for us this week, we are still cycling through listener submissions for the. Ongoing search for a new piece of music but. That was it for this week. Well, Jeff Anderson. I'm Norma. Thanks for joining us for a late podcast according to this week you might be listening to this Thursday. Maybe even early Friday but with me is short Hari Hello. Looking. Very, orange. I'm just trying to match like the ambiance of the western half of the United States right now. We'll get to that and sitting in for Jim Williams, we have returning guests first time in a long while great to see trace mingas low I was sad that Germany could make it but I'm happy that I come back and say hi For very happy as well. Jeremy will, of course, be back next week we're going to talk all sorts of VR because facebook connect is happening but. Sucks for him because there's so much talk about this week and I'm glad you guys are both on because I. There's some Star Trek I definitely want to talk. About with you guys a but let's do a little bit of catch-up. How are things going and trace we haven't seen you since you move to. The Los. Angeles area that's right. Yeah. I moved right before all the whole pandemic started. So I haven't really explored L. A. Much. You Sidewalk the backyard I wanted to the beach a few times. I've I. You know San Francisco's very walkable I. Don't think I walked around my neighborhood just to walk around my neighborhood as much as I have here. So we moved in February and we've been inside pretty much ever since, but it's been nice. Otherwise we have more in the weather is nice and. There's IT's. Is it really is no. Nitzan Debbie. But otherwise, you're still producing content running your mental still making my youtube channel dose of Trace. I'm doing series of videos at least once a month about topics. The most recent one was about time the one before that was about brain computer interfaces, which we're GONNA come back to in a little bit. I WANNA out the the time when he didn't interview with Katie Mac whose. astrophysicist that kind of steady studies like how the universe is going to end you know uplifting topic but just has a book out on it and I thought that we view he death. Yeah there's more than one option than he death. Katie's got She's awesome. The book is really good. It's called the end of everything and she was really I was really lucky to get her to hop on. We talked for a whole hour and a half but I only put maybe twenty five minutes into it just because she was blowing my mind like every five minutes is great. I love the bouncing biting. You have for watching the video traces a wonderful studio setup. Steady up the studio was quite fun for you. It was so fun. Actually I mean when I was in SF, I was in the like my living room. Because I I didn't shoot videos that often I wasn't doing this full time and I still had a fulltime job and. then. When we moved down here I have this whole bedroom that's just for me. So got a nice teal orange balance the buser just ikya lights in the book shelves so that that's just the key orange over there, and then I got this this neon what if light from a video production they were like we don't need this light do you want it and I'm like? Yes, I, do. And it came out perfectly. Awesome. Little behind the scenes different perspective for when People Watch your videos you got four walls. Right you can shoot from any angle yes I do I mean this is a closet. So I've actually I put the camera in the closet when I have a host, a an astronomy show called stargazers on PBS and so I have to put the camera in the closet run to zoom. Accounts one for the producers in Florida and then one for the a different producer to like show me what I'm standing in front of a green screen that pulls down on this side. So I've made the most of a like twelve by twelve little room. Just, like the the editor of the life mix. Guy For the Democratic National Convention you saw that photo right? Oh. Yeah I wanted to. Is set up. That was amazing. To do it with shorts. Just, I just feel like that's that's the victory condition it is. Yeah, I. Hope they were like athletic shorts too. I couldn't really tell from the photo they might have been like you know nice may be khaki shorts with pleat maybe just like one pleat he seemed like a pleated guy I don't know I thought he was more of like a cargo shorts. Cargo shorts and socks with sandals like no doubt when Emmy Award winning you can you can rock that yeah. Go for it and I. Thank you. Kill pockets. Utility field is actually a really good transition where what I was doing this weekend, which is I was at virtual, dragging Khan and That's a weird thing to say like the kilt is transition because there's there's like a whole set of people that were killed a dragon. It's like delayed thing. Yeah, and there's a subculture for everything. So I've been trying to go to as many online cons as I can partially because I enjoy con culture. You. Know it's not without its faults but. I think live events are in like a really tough position right now. So I'm trying to support as many as I as I can in the coming months in hopes that you know a number of them survive now drag hunts a huge. It's an annual Qasr play pop culture festival in Atlanta and usually like eighty ninety, thousand people go. So it's. Not In any danger of not coming back next year but with something that big something that that's so beloved and it's really a fan run con I was very curious to see how they would organize us because most other cons if you look back, even like San Diego is like panel on Youtube Channel on Youtube. Panel and you to holiday. And, dragon did have a bunch of panels but they also, they still had like the fan run panels where it's like we're gonNA have I literally watched in our science panel on the Diet of Baby Yoda like an hour on that one narrow topic. What did I know? Give me the this. Oh, so much like they're so much about like teeth and and like there's that whole scene where he likes swallows a frog, but he swallows it whole and like there's bones. So what kind of teat structure must have like the whole like coloration of skin like what to maintain that green color if we're assuming certain environment so that it was very complicated but you know that's like the essence of drag on his kind of like very ah, deep dives into esoteric stuff and they pull it off. It's not the same. You can't recreate 'cause played virtually as much as they try. They had masquerades they that were really cute and adorable. You got to see some really impressive display showcase, but it's just not the same as seeing it live but they created like a ton of programming. So I probably watched like another ten fifteen hours panels and it was about as satisfying as any kind of been too because it wasn't just like celebrity panel celebrity panel and in college it was actually very much like more my speed. And the whole thing like hinged on discord, which is dislike nothing that I really thought. So they built a massive discord space to mirror the con-. So like a different sort of hotel lobbies that just like at the con that you would like sort of serve to. Go to and like the different fan tracks actually existed like the discord channels existed in those hotel lobbies. So you would interact with people that like I've randomly met over the years in kind of like the same location that I met them before and it was actually really well done. So it actually was the first time I was like somebody's actually use discord to its full. Abilities and people were able to watch panels together and kind of talk to each other through the voice interface was really great. What would you call that? It's more for them if you're mapping like the organizational structure of. Essentially to physical space. What It's basically. It's UNIX I know this right and you're basically now getting. Hold onto your butts. Here we go. I've been going to the online vid and it was not it's not quite the same. But like they, they also have been using discord. It seems like discords really like feels like discord zoom a few of these. APPS. Happened to exist already and did a lot of stuff for a small niche community and now they're these massive people have just glommed into them and I wonder how they're feeling about it. Honestly while I'm sure they're happy they make sure they're happy for user base but like still. Wow. Lot Of integrations lot. It's very powerful platform and you know especially for video gaming, it's it's basically replaced. So many other kind of social media services and done very well we use it all the time. There's tested discord tested dot G G. Discord edgy slash tested. That's right. Brit how house up the? Google. I'm ready getting ahead of ourselves where they announced they were fun though thing. I think kind of in line with the bitcoin yesterday but I haven't heard about that. Yeah. It's. It's their way of doing meet ups with creators. So it's it's part of the Google like they had a whole. They have a whole department that does just experimental projects. called. Area one twenty, it's incubator with in Google and the projects that basically it's allows creators to host just using the web platform a meet up one on one meet UPS. Group seminars and thirty people can buy tickets to for scheduled time. And get typical meet-and-greet photo booth or a structured lesson on something and that's out. there. It's pretty similar to what cons have been doing with like different pop culture celebrities where you get like Couple minute meet and greet Does it use like duo or meet as it's like video service come lake or? Something else. There's web based. User, and then the creators it's either an APP or a web based pc like just like Youtube says using the back end I. Know you've. I mean they have a lot of that functionality and Youtube I. Guess this would just build some structure on top of that. That same that same back and payment processing. Twenty percent cut and. Under twenty percent damn. Well. You know if we're going to get to the percentage cut when we get to before night. Nick but. Twenty s better than thirty. I guess there's a lot I, just doing in this episode I also hang everything to Patriot like a it eleven or twelve. So it just seems high in comparison of course. Yeah. Yeah. Totally. Any shouts from Dragon Khan and he folks sure that you're happy to see. You plan on going back next year digital address up. So in a stonecutters 'cause Play Group from the Simpsons and the silliest thing we did is I bought a cameo from Steve Gutenberg. So. When we sing the song like he now sings along with us So I that was the best investment a made. But Like in a way, it was sad because like dragon con ever since I've been going which has been like five five years or so has like I immediately of like displaces home to me like just being that. That's the Evan's and so hell. Yes I'm back as soon as it can be back, you know who knows if next year it's going to be able to come back I really hope. So But he count me in because I i. don't think you can ever. Get away from like that person creative juice that comes from seeing people causeway together and and that's the place where it really hits home for me. Yeah Yeah. Can you disclose what does a Cameo from Steve Gutenberg costs and? So I got in before the John. Oliver. Up. Like one hundred dollars or so and I think it's one seventy five now. Good Yeah you all over search. Pricey. I would do this. Yeah. Simulation by the pool. I was like in his bedroom like. Like you know what? I'll just say this you know Burg apologies if I'm revealing too much it was too fast. How how fast he got back to me it's like you know when? The button on a website and you're like, okay, I haven't sure. I'll see this tomorrow or or in a couple days it was like I went to the bathroom came back and it's like your cameo is here and it was like too fast. Hiking Creator I think that's the technical term he is on it. Wow. Very cool. All right. Well. As always after the ketchup and let's start with our top story. Top story this week. Trip I know you're in La's so didn't get to enjoy this once a hopefully once in a many year occurrence but the sky in the bay area yesterday was orange. Yeah it was nuts 'cause sure. I mean record the yesterday because it was we were all freaking out you had to get out of this town. For some fresh air but what was it like when you when you woke up yesterday? So it was I'll explain it this way what I woke up, it was the end of total recall. about an hour later it was full blade runner twenty, forty nine like really deep orange. Yeah. And then by eleven am, which is when it was full unsettling for me it was like solar eclipse. It was dark like the street lights in on my street had come on the you know Everyo-, all the cars that were driving had their lights on and outside of like very stranger things you know the. That creature in the distance kind of like glow in the distance sky it was night at eleven am Deeply deeply unsettling I never expected to be that unsettling to be like, hey, it's eleven am and it's dark outside I thought. Oh, just be like, okay and just like go back to work like it was no big deal. It was. Created enormous amount anxiety me that's only continued into today where like even as we're recording this. The AQHA levels the you know the particulate matter that's dangerous to our health. is about as high as it's been this entire season here in SF. Like over two hundred, which is. What's considered unhealthy. For. Any adult to be outside. And it stayed that we even got darker I think it it did not get. Anywhere. Any anywhere resembling a normal day all yesterday and just eventually just got dark because the sunset but we couldn't at least was even a couple of miles from the ocean could not see the sun at all. It was so surreal said, street lights went on photos that we saw people people did go outside. So we went up two twin peaks in San Francisco and you could see the their drones up above the fog layer. It looked like blade runner it looked into the orange. Yeah. There are a bunch of videos of people set it to the music and it was both cool and also I watched them it was really sad it was just like because it isn't computer generated color. This isn't color grading. It's just life but norm you're closer to the ocean. So it was even like that there where you would potentially get like a seabreeze there was no no getting away from I. You could see the ocean, you could see clouds and you could see like there's contrast. So it wasn't like a blanket of the monotone Hayes. So there are some like you know that you can see some structure up in the atmosphere, but it was still blanket dark and orange. So it was about is it was safe to go out in terms of the smoke levels and the air quality levels because it was this kind of weird confluence of science stuff where. This smoke from fires out by Yosemite had created this huge plume of Ash in it actually gone a westward but a gun Westford high in the atmosphere and as it got over San Francisco, there's this fog marine layer that was below the smoke layer and the combination of those two took the essentially white light from the sun and scattered it. And the the wavelength that it scatters I is blue light. So all the blue light gets filtered out I and so only the stuff towards the other end of the spectrum the on. The yeah. The longer we got through and so that's why we got this like orangish red like a reddish color that was a combination of the of kind of like a a a yellow orange kind of spectrum of colours coming down and so it was like in this weird way was this cool science thing that was happening real time also like I remember seeing the National Weather Service like. Western. Area say. Yeah this is what's happening. They can explain what was happening with the light gathering and they're like and we have no models to explain what happens next like we don't know what's GonNa happen like there's people who I know reported having Ash rain down. On their on their cars and in their areas and it smelled the smoke other places where was like it was totally fine outside. I had a few people reach out their friends that have lived in Australia and up near Edmonton where they had similar fires in the last year and talked about in a very similar skies. Over their. Cities. For for a couple days. is due to the fires. Of course, a west coast is on fire from. The season of it, but if feels much worse this season than past seasons you know. The thing that people are not talking about on the news is this is this is climate change like the fires are result of. The. Getting hotter yeah. Yeah and that right now the August complex they reported not long ago August complex fire. It's the largest in California history at four, hundred, seventy, thousand acres or something I mean, it's. Not GonNa get any better if we don't get something about it not just like fight the fire but let's like trying to fight the fever. The fever is happening because there's an underlying condition than this is just what we're seeing. So. It we shouldn't ignore what's happening in Oregon right now as we're recording this ten percent of the population of the state is under evacuation orders because of. How much fires raging there but in a California context Over, three million acres have burned which is almost the amount that has burned in the past three years combined and is by far the most that burned in one year on record a as far back as records go and in addition though I would say there are some like early, not reliable records going back like a hundred years that have like earn rate similar during railroad times because railroads would cause forest fires as they would go along sparks from from trains but this is this is totally intense. It's a combination of three factors from every scientists. Of Dr One is we've had a very successful history of fire suppression since the seventies where we've limited the number of fires that has built up an enormous amount of fuel in the soil the increase temperatures in the bay area. So if you look at a town like Berkeley, just across from where we are average temperatures, Berkeley over the past five years have gone up around a two degrees from where they were, which has led to drying out of soils, which makes the them more flammable and then there's increased a weather conditions that can lead to spontaneous fire-starting. So with increased Temperatures We see a higher propensity for lightning strikes. So a a paper came out in twenty fifteen that looked at the western US and what the potential was for increased lightning strikes, and it was up twelve percent due to increased weather activity associated to climate change in combined all of those things you get. Lightening. Strike fires. That have that just spread. So quickly then you combine that with the pandemic, where many fire crews and California actually used people from from a prison and they're much more limited because of. The Way the pandemic his as hit those regions and we have a kind of a confluence of a bunch of terrible things all at once there's just no question that this is worse because of climate change. Yeah. Yeah. Strong correlation in the we understand there's a ton of like bad shit happening in the world right now they're distracting people but the one really depressing thing is you know the the kind of. National Reaction and response to the pandemic which is. A Global catastrophe kind of at the time scale that we were as people supposed to understand as opposed to talk on climate change if we cannot. If the inconvenience of of staying indoors and staying and being in being cautious and wearing and wearing a mass is not enough to get people to save themselves for that type of thing than it it you know it's the inconvenience of climate change happening is something I don't know it's very depressing to think about. I feel like there's a there are a number of threads tying these things together to i. mean you mentioned our response to the pandemic? Is it? I think it's a great kind of analogy to how we look at climate change. It's like, yeah for the first few weeks for the first few months people were like super into stuff to protect themselves from this pandemic and protect others. Then, it became just too annoying to deal with, and so people slowly started to do more and more and more things outside and away from and like start to ignore it more and more things. It's like it's easy to get people to save water for a very short period of time. It's very hard to get people to save water for a prolonged period of time and it's It reminds me of game of thrones right where. There are several people in society who are just like winter's coming it winter. The winter is coming y'all and there are people that will not like it and not be able to just do whatever they want like they could in the summer. It back to pop culture trace your very. Way You're. I can tell you one. After tomorrow. To spin it back somewhere positive really quickly is but preparedness can deal with elements of both of what we're talking about with the pandemic and with these fires. The California state has been partnering with a lot of native American groups that had been doing prescribed burns kind of a in a what they're called Cultural Burns for period of time and I. Think we're going to actually see a lot of attention on prescribed burns to Kinda cut down on the amount of fuel that's available in this under story in really specific areas especially in ways that protect a cities and homes from from potential damage because the one thing that's come out like one of my favorite state parks big basin. State Park which is. Just north of Santa Cruz burned like the entire park burned but they went in a few days later, all the redwood trees that are there are still alive because they're adapted for millions of years like this is normal for you. Yeah. This is like their jam. So there has to be like a some level of preparedness and work that goes in in between these periods. So we're not just happen crisis to crisis that we do something in between and there are there are stories of positive influences that have been made. It's just we have to do that at scale. Collectively, we're just not very good at looking at the long view of it. All I think the another thing to go back to the analogy of the pandemic is much like the the pandemic climate change is going to affect people disproportionately whether it's geographically or socio-economically, and it's as connected as we all are with technology and communications. Today, we still very disconnected outside of our own bubbles and the people that we directly relate to, and so you know like the folks even though we may have friends in Australia, they went through the fires that was another big sign earlier this year about on the effects of climate change and. Again short memory doesn't remember that and didn't prepare us for this. And we had fires here in La. I didn't live here then but like fires here and and part of it is also you know the policies of building into what used to be wildlife preserves. So I mean if you if you're an environmentalist, there are so many places that you can go out and help when it comes to climate change, and also when it comes to policy around other things that you value like if we WANNA protect Moorland and WanNa treat that land properly like fire science and forestry science is still evolving all the time so. And there's lots. There's lots of stuff to learn. Yeah. Unless you look forward to the hell scape that will become the planet earth. At, Max was cool but I don't WanNa live there. What about the planet Dune. For rackets. As I could feel that transition coming. About As well, you should be because now moving on its pop culture we're flying on. All. Right. So we're GONNA, get back to the main topics at hand pop culture being one of them and. This is it's I said this before and previous episode, but it's weird watching trae was weird watching movies during the lockdown because it doesn't feel like these are movies even though they were made years last year or earlier this year or maybe you're still in production it just there's a disconnect between what's going on in the world right now and how abnormal things feel an kind of the weird normalcy of singer big budget movie trailer a specially one Dune. So the first June trailer was released by one brothers earlier this week this is from Danny. Villa knew who directed they run or twenty, forty nine as well as. A rival and Was the other way he's on a couple of other is A. French director and. It's the latest retelling of do now I confess I have not read the source material Dune. Dune is not that's not in my library. But that's you on the podcast. So it sounds like trick Herbert is sad frank. Yeah. GimMe that Milange Guys got that Milan. I think it's illegal for us to give it. Yes the spice I know you're talking about the spice there. The South Park episode. That's Yes. Yes okay. So I know the plot. But. It's going to be another adaptation of the big elements or there. But what? Did, you see in this trailer that you're excited about that was not in the David Lynch movie. David Lynch movies. Weird. It's a David Lynch movie and like you forget how strange it is like it a lake. Just, thinking about the casting of that movie which has kyle, mclachlan and staying and Patrick. Stewart it's like it's very like like when you look back on it like how all these people in this in this weird movie from like the mid eighties was like excalibur if we but it was my first time a-. I, never read the Book and my dad was like watch this cool sci-fi movie and it was weird but it was definitely cool. Yeah. So. This is a other say this look spectacular. I'm all in like every element of the trailer worked for me. Even Jason Momoa has, Duncan Idaho, which was the thing I was probably the most sceptical love from like the early pictures and stuff I just never pictured him as Dunkin in my own head. I think everyone that is read the books and seeing the David Lynch probably of their own kind of like pictures of these characters and their heads for from their youth. It just blew me away on every level in I. I am one of those Timothy Shalam haters like I am not into that kid. And he is he i. don't find him charming but like he fills that role I in a way that that kind of makes sense you know they have to play with with time in the context of this is they're going to really stay true to the original story But what I, what I got from the trailer, which I didn't get as much from from the nineteen four movie which I haven't seen in a number of years is Dune is kind of a bummer like it's a huge bunker, the entire story. Yeah. even when it reaches its conclusion and I'm not going to spoil anything for those that don't know it. It's like not this kind of celebratory conclusion for the the character that that kind of comes out on top as it were. So this is like Dour in a lot of ways and I got that mood from this movie. So if feels like it's going to be very moody and just beautiful to look at very in a way. Lawrence. Of Arabia come to me in it's visuals. Elements of the Hero's journey, right? polarities journey of becoming who is destined to be. But. It's also both the Lynch mill and also I guess why people love the book is that is huge exercise in in world building, and that's the thing that makes this such an outlier in today's big movie budget. You know big big movie in Hollywood film is how the hundred multi hundred million dollar film. Yes a recognizable in somewhat name for science fiction fans for fans of science fiction films but Bladerunner Twenty Nine even though as beloved that has that story is. As, great as that movie was by the same people made this movie. Bombed so. Why This this. That's why this movie's feel. So out of place why it feels like it's like how houses existing right now. Barbara. I love that you brought up twenty forty nine only because not just because of the parallels, there's obviously some parallels but like that wasn't even a retelling of bladerunner, it was a like a sort of continuation of the original story, and this is like we're going to start over again with the story that isn't probably as popular as a marvel movie, but we're going to spend the same amount of money and that's Kind of insane but also. I don't know I think your point about world building nails it like that's the thing that I always loved about Dune even when I what I saw the David Lynch movie I and then went and read the book because I was like there's so much more to this universe than they could put in that one really really freaking weird movie like in their the the different political empires and the families that are battling. It's got if you like fantasy and sci fi there are elements of all of that scattered throughout this universe literally literally this universe. So which makes great television show and IT MAKES Long form storytelling. Always see Dune have been a HBO series. Game of thrones in the way that the witcher has done very well for Netflix ex. But to put all the movies, work that way the the the kind of the business of Hollywood is too high risk high reward. If you're going to spend one hundred, hundred, million dollars in a movie, it's gotTa, make a billion dollars worldwide. See they're going to make twenty of these movies and they're gonNa make one altogether where all of the characters get together in one or two big users. This. This feels like theory road to be in a lot of ways in the sense that. It runs a nice edge between he could be spectacularly awful. or it can be a legendary movie which I think like fury road, hit it out of the park. It in a lot of ways I think he wrote is the Best Mad Max Ville. And this could easily be that I, don't think it's going to. Be Like Mediocre. We're not going to be like that was an okay Dune, maybe you're gonNA love this or hate it, and then that's it of scary. You're that kind of polarizing a movie that satisfies a hardcore film in Science Fiction Fan, which is essentially a why they hired any to do this because of all the kind of success and expertise had in making a blade runner and arrival on the critical success for rival. That is not I mean the this movies on the shoulders of of Timmy. And Dia being people who are going to get the actors and the Star power that are GONNA get young people into the theaters they have us they have. US Old fogies, right Of Science, fiction fans. Running. But we're not gonNA make them a billion dollars is going to be the kids and the kids like Zendaya the kids like Timmy. The question I have is how long is this movie? Like if you're making a faithful June movie at six hours law right if you're making like a reasonable can of outrageous dune movie, it's still like three hours long So like how is this actually going to be a two hour movie? They have a lot of ground to cover quickly it's the first half. So this is written as only covering the first half of the novel, and while the second film has been green lit for budgetary reasons to the pope in all the actors were signed for making a sequel. So this is definitely, they don't need to have some of them back. So it's GONNA BE? standalone epic they need to say that because people are scared of having to invest time and energy into a story that they may not see conclusion too. But There hopefully, they will be a sequel. Will skip the first one when they know there's a sequel I'm like my uncle saw the first Lord of the Rings and was like wait there's more of these and I was like wait dude, they've been talking about this forever and so it's like people now know. That this is only the first half I wonder if there are people that will hold off so they can binge them both. I I literally did not know a first half. Are they still making the series companion series from? Hbo Max. I. Think. They're making still a prequel series so much like you know this is all new Brenda Warner Max. Where like the Batman the Robert Pattinson Mattress Batman, they're doing a tie. INS. Or the HBO for the Gotham City Police Department another hop show and for this doing a prequel series for Hbo Max as well. Yeah. What we don't know what's less certain is that the release date for this film now that we've seen the first trailer now they're hedging their bets hope originally having December release date but that may get pushed into early next year or sometime next year because it looks like Wonder Woman Nineteen eighty-four, which is already pushed. October is now being pushed to. The somber basically. Warner Brothers dip their toes back into the market with tenant, which had all the hallmarks of being a great movie to return to theaters for except that it's not time to return to theaters while that movie is released overseas in rashly and in many parts of the United States except for big cities in which you can't have theater gatherings. Falling. Much. Short of the expectations at least set by their original budget and marketing for the film for Christopher Nolan Film. Notwithstanding the reviews and critical reception. I was listening to the radio and they were saying that they consider it a success even with its low budget. So like low kind of take so far because of time that it's happened in. So I think that's good to hear I still want to see this movie and. I miss seeing movies in theaters but and I think it's what's we'll probably change and obviously the business models have changed a lot with companies like Disney putting their big budget films like, Hamilton. On their subscription services or along which we'll talk about on their subscription services for a fee. The M-, the. Outside of the kind of films where you're talking about marvel film where people are trained to watch the opening weekend because that is going to be Zeitgeist, it's going to be your virtual water cooler talk films like tenant while it's shrouded in mystery, and there are probably spoilers out there. May. Have longer legs there will be opportunities in maybe not next year. But maybe in many years to come for, it's actually be back in theaters. So we can look back and say, Hey, there's a bunch of homes. I didn't get the chance to watch and twenty, twenty, twenty, twenty one. But I, would love to be able to see it in theaters if it was in theaters for a weekend for a couple of weeks in twenty twenty. Two I mean if you think of the graph of a filmmaking right there Hollywood makes one hundred and some movies a year they probably are gonNA. Make fewer this year. So maybe we'll see resurgences of like they'll double up on the movies that came out this year because there were made before and they'll see them in the theaters when that dip will hit theaters in a year or two right now is the that lag time of post production. And I mean that's I'm I'm hoping I. Guess. In other pop culture news big news in the world of the walking dead, which I guess is still going on. I think it's eleven seasons I want to say I would have thought thirty at this point I feel feels like it. But they've announced that it will conclude at its twelfth season two year. Split in half twelve season but fear not fans of those characters. If you're a fan of Daryl or Carol, I guess we're both by my still live they're going to own spinoff show. So very pre-announce the spinoff show, and so it's really sounds like the universe will continue which we knew what's going to happen with. AMC It's too much of a money maker for them, but all the contracts will probably get renewed and so this feels more like a business decision. So to get out of having to pay an actor as a lot of money because they've been on certain shows for. Time. That's what it feels like to me. Back to life. Now, there are dead the whole time they are the walking worthy walking debt. Really. Enjoy the show for so long. Okay, here's where let's get to the fun part trace. Have you been watching Star Trek lower deck's I have not been watching star for Ex I. Know I know I know Oh my God. Okay. So wait but. My fiance and I have been watching the next generation in preparation of going to watch the lower deck so that she knows the world. Since we're at home all the time we only have one TV we have to watch it on this. I have to watch it with her in the room and she needs to know who all these people are. Now because sure. You and I have a chance to talk about this. Jeremy, for sure. He also traced did a whole binge of next generation with family and they sought more. We Watch you know card together mixed reactions to that he did not like lower deck's. Or I believe you also do not not a fan. I got through the first episode at like a it didn't Hook me. So I didn't go back for more really. Got To stick with it. Yeah. Like I hear you like a lot of people I respect a lot of people I know that that work in Star Trek love it and really expressed a fondness that it captures an element of the Star Trek Universe that's been missing from some of the other shows. I don't want to say it didn't Hook me. It is so full L. Cars. I always give a show at least three episodes. You only gave it one year like. What is what? Norm, what is that that? had. That array of. This computer you're watching the video This was a gift from industrial designer who worked on this as a product for the Ron Berry. Company. And there are not many of these in the world by received recently, and it is beautiful mazing -ly put together replica of. Cards. Desktop computer. So do you ever just sit in your office and then wait for damage had to come in and you're staring at it and then you hit the button and then look up in acknowledged her caused get the full ready room effect Eilly. Up and ask for the gray I was going to say she. Could have to bring the? Good luck with that hot plate is the hot. Plate. Of. Boiling. Water. Three prince her bed warming up just ready. He's exactly exactly I'm such a fan of Lord Ex. I. Know There was debates whether how canonical it is but very clearly the writers the. The production designers are. Such. Big. Star Trek fans that there are so many Easter eggs here and there. I think someone described it as you can watch it as if this was a show that was. Played in the Star Trek Universe. In. Two thousand four century like someone in on on earth in two, thousand, three, eighty watching their version of the office this this would be that. You through that Lens, you might enjoy more I like that I'm excited to watch like I've heard a lot of buzz about it, and just like you have heard some things are good. Some people think it's fine. I skipped Oroville although I heard that I shouldn't have I heard that was quite quite fun but I'm excited for lower deck's. Good intersection of the tone between the Orville also being a huge love letter to. Science Fiction Episode Ix. Science fiction like Star Trek and Babylon Five, and this one hundred percent has that. I think you know their wacky characters a Commie for sure. It's animating all sorts of crazy things that you never see portrayed with live actors but the spirit of it I think is still very, very star Trek. That's good. That makes me happy. All right, and then finally in the pop culture world, we did have the release of Mu, Lan last week now trace. Not only have not seen it yet, but you don't know if you should. Yeah, I don't know if I should with all of the news of of Disney working with parts of China that have been known to have concentration camps in them, and you know about some of the political I, it's it's all the politics i. I sometimes I want to show all that out and just enjoy a piece of of of good storytelling in an art. Sometimes it can be hard and and this one hit me out with a lot of that politics all at once. So I'm conflicted. Absolutely. It's complicated and I think where land that is absolutely spreading the awareness of that is good. But I also am wanting to support the representation that this character means also the filmmakers who worked on it. WHO had no say in those politics. And the work that they put in putting this piece of story together. Without going to spoilers review the film the One thing I will say is even watching at home and I have as close to. The. High end home. The. One percent theater experience outside of having a theater room dedicated room in my house with a projector as I could have and it still I think much short of what? I'm used to in going to a theater in watching in adobe like motion all experiences white there. This movie was meant to be seen as theater period and a and a sentence. Here's a weird take but if this pandemic wasn't happening and this movie got released in theaters normally. I'm not sure. We see as much backlash to that. We've seen online like about. The wieger is and everything else that has come. Associated I think Disney with their pricing model invited more criticism for this movie and created amplification for it. And that's why I think we're hearing more about this I. Think this would have been a smash hit at the theaters under different circumstances that being said I. Liked this movie. There's elements that don't work for me, but it's a beautiful movie. It is very much in the epic Chinese cinema landscape they have so many so much they're casting calls forth a great actors from a Kung Fu cinema whether it's like Donnie yen gently is in this movie I don't think they use them to their to their potential and I, think this movie is missing. Even amidst its incredible beauty and landscapes and I think it's actually well acted by especially by by the Milan character really carries a exceptional performance. They're missing notes from the animated movie of of Humor of lightheartedness I think not having the songs. The songs did a ton of storytelling in that movie that never quite land here like we we get some of her motivation, but it's just very fast and. Reflections yeah. I do want that reflection moment of really getting there, and then there's a whole supernatural element to this movie that is just sort of. Glossed over. It's it's never kind of explained and so I feel like this needed like an extra twenty thirty minutes to make it make. It's Go most of your sentiments especially with the casting in the under. Of some of the actors and there are many. Hats hips, they gave to. Famous actors in in Chinese. Cinema. Pink Shea whose Ching pay pay. She was Jade Fox in crouching. Tiger. She played the metro maker which is a completely different role, but also just a cameo role. I think I wanted this to me more crushing tiger than it was, and that's why I left wanting more from it because ended up still feeling like a Disney film even though it is the least Disney of the Disney live action films. Petitions. I'm excited I think I'm glad you mentioned like representation and I think this was this is a movie that that's one of the things I was most excited about is like seeing live action characters play of all the animated movies that they made into real move real people movies. This is a real people movie. I. Wanted to see it with real people in it and see how they could take these characters further. So I will likely you'll see the movie but. I was because I was so excited for it from the moment they announced it. So I I'll take your reviews and. I mean the closest live action adaptation from Disney their archive is Latin for this. A lot in. And this is better in that. You could actually call this an epic story. It's a war story and allowed in was still very much that same story almost like the Broadway musical was with the music and this, I think not having the songs very deliberate choice when you also lose the impact of in the animation, the the damage film, no of the music thing of big part of the first half, and then once they reached the camp and all the soldiers all the you know the. The death, there's no music afterward, the movie series in contrast I think helps the storytelling in the animation. Also, the the animation was fantastic. There was that the avalanche scene where the. No Four hand-drawn animation you have this basically computer controlled cameras an enemy where you go cross this mountain escape with snow and the horses. Running down and that was so groundbreaking for animated film that perspective and that level of complexity, and you don't think you get the equivalent of that. Here you know the the fight choreography is is quite beautiful. All right I'm still excited I'm still excited. Yeah. Yeah. You know if you have this plastic told you don't pay the thirty bucks wait in the year three months and it'll be available for everyone. Before we continue with this week's episode. I'M GONNA.

Once again, that's K. E. E. P. S. dot com slash only attests. The back to the show. into. Okay. We'll get through this rather quickly but big news in the world of video game consoles Microsoft made the first move in this game of chicken. This delicate game of checkers chess whatever you WANNA call between Sony and Microsoft, and they flexed their market cap power. This trillion dollar company said, you know someone high ups? Saw said, hey. Hey, Panos. Let's let's let's price it three hundred and let's see what Sony says. We're worth it. We got the market cap right now we can. We can take it and so while the news was leaked and they probably denounce it earlier than they had wanted to the two versions of the next xbox have been announced it's the xbox. Series s and the xbox series x not to be confused with the xbox one x and the xbox one S. it's the xbox series as ex a disc version and a version at the entry level one which apparently still more powerful than the original xbox one. But will not do four K. gaming at Sixty S. That won't be three hundred dollars and the series x which comes out the book come out. November tenth will be five hundred dollars, which is lower than I. Think we're most of us were expecting. One hundred dollars low like now little our that significant as well as they made to their game pass. Pairing with EA. So comes with the orange and passed as well. As pretty strong week for Microsoft. You're. Looking at that series as pricing I, do not understand how they got it down to three hundred dollars I mean because you're talking about a system again, it's still like know at the highest end but like you could still play at like one hundred F. B. S. A, bunch of games. On on the series s and three hundred dollars, they must be losing like one hundred dollars. If not one, hundred, fifty dollars per console on that thing, there's so much power in these machines. I can't see. So knee matching these prices. Of them, it's going to be about the the Games and Sony with their games announcements earlier. Felt like that of stronger lineup in the launch window of games, and both of these are tapping very high speed Stores Strives. So you very fascinating. That's can be a hallmark of this generation. Of course, tied to the engines of unreal fives of the world being optimized for this stuff and the series s even those has much less storage than the series x it will still use that same. Storage system. So you get the same benefit and for people who don't have four KTV's right now who are still running on. High Quality Tennessee we systems even fourteen forty P monitors. The series s might be right. And three hundred bucks. I know it's insane for us to say three hundred dollars sounds cheap. Anything else in the world, you could buy a lot of suffer through hundred bucks. It is we do live in a world where you know smartphones on the regular cost upwards of twelve hundred to fifteen hundred or even two thousand dollars if you're talking about like a Samsung foldable phone. I'm looking in the context of what the launch prices were for consoles within this framework like the place three, the xbox one, they all launched a much higher price points than this three hundred like the three hundred has been only utilized by Nintendo for the most part or going back to like early editions of these councils. So it is relatively speaking. Cheap especially, like if you just tear down what's inside, it's cheap for the component costs of what inside I think this is a coastal generation are absolutely feels maybe for the first time, the impact of mobile gaming and the timeshare share on the mindshare that vary the games built into the devices that people have to have their tablets and their phones. And people being less interested in maybe in the mainstream Amer core. Gamers. Stream audiences are maybe less interested in buying a game console these days you don't need it for frappes. You don't need it for Blu ray you you have streaming services built TV's, and you have fortnight on your phones, maybe their iphone not all but. Most of your phones. And that's why they got to be aggressive because. They WANNA. Get you subscribe. Right. They'll make that money back on a subscription plan. That's what I was thinking. This is like. One first thing I thought is. Named these assumes everyone has perfect diction and and that I think it's tough but I think the the thing is I think one it's very affordable. Maybe they're trying to get into the switch market and be like Oh dated so well, maybe we can also do so well perhaps it's because the game systems that we all know what you said earlier we're like older now and we we have grown as the games community is also grown, and now it's maybe it's changed maybe does Zuma generation doesn't care as much about consoles as the millennials did I mean there this is when they're going to have to start dealing with Zuma's being adult purchases, not not teen purchases and. They need to reach that critical mark where the platforms that the people were on reach a critical mass so that you get the network effects benefits because if you think about generations ago, the first that the social networks of the world were through the game consoles. That's where people found their communities through the xbox through the playstation. Now it's on your phone. It's on your PC discord is native not to those devices and that's where the people are. And that's why I'm sure Microsoft's interested in also buying buying. Platform Agnostics Yup. The world is phones though we'll maybe phones but least smart. Tablets Apple has announced. They're having an event next week September fifteenth. What is that next Tuesday? I believe usually Tuesday Tuesday. Of course as a livestream, this'll be their second big keynote just. Virtually after WDC and the expectation is that it'll be the series six watch as well as a redesign IPAD air more in line with the design of the ipad pros a very big fan of that, and maybe even a new home pod who cares about that but also the execution has no new iphones up the cement and that will be. Announced maybe in October. So the first September event in a while with no new iphones which they telegraphed with the last earnings call. But. ARE PEOPLE EXCITED FOR NEW IPHONES? It's sad that the thing I'm most excited about is watching them do the filmography of. WC was so beautifully. Beautiful and they had all these like cool locations and I was like, what camera they using? I know it's like that's the thing I'm going to be most excited. Lizzy do it because we didn't have that awkward like Journalists Clapping I. Know. Right. And that was probably already film maybe weeks ago for their planning on releasing these this video. Next. Tuesday. But imagine if they had. Timed the production days not this past week or yesterday right one of the the if you live in a big glass if you work in a big glass donut. Can't get away from the Mad Max son. Filming. Yeah Orlean into it or lean into it and use some of that amplifying message power as color correct balance everything sleep everybody was really weird but it'll be the right color. Fast exposure changes in the color white balance changes learn new IPHONE sensors. Own sees the world normally even though you're is me not. Here come the apple glasses. You don't want it to be orange anymore put this on your face rosy-tinted or not. They definitely see the world from their perspective and from their perspective. EPIC is the villain not apple they're still ongoing thorough litigator and. Most recently, apple has removed ethics ability to sign with apple taking away features because. From perspective. Fortnight's having their own paint payment system is theft So no resolution yet these are two big companies one massively big bigger than the other but still two, very, very rich companies fighting at it for this basically funding over that thirty percent that apple started. Establishing way back with the beginning of APP store. Do. You see this as petty I'm I'm starting to see it like getting into that territory and they showed no signs of slowing down the kind of like I think we're a week away from literally. Tim Cook NBC's showing up inside a fortnight so that you can shoot them or something. It's like it is going down a weird path is only gonNA get settled when epic Blake's. Because apple's not going to blink on this. or the lawsuits progress. I agree I think that we mentioned next week. No No. No. If you're the publicity. Yeah. If you're apple like white knowledge it. Yeah. Leg. In the room the question is whether they take a subtle shot at fortnight by featuring you know an F. B. S. in some like a different one or the like. Are we going to see like the Lawrence or? Something you know up there as a subtle shot I doubt it. I think apple's like to to kind of a you know above the fray to do that Kinda stuff but that would signal that that there's something has gotten under their skin about this or they're worried about it. I just don't think we're GONNA see anything from Apple. So much trauma in the tech world whether it's between Microsoft and Sony. Anxious. Launch consoles whether it's between Apple Google for their android eleven release or but you also Nintendo just sitting happy in the corner selling switches. Let people build Lego build. Bill, Bill, Mario, Lego, the Lego set, and also very soon come October drive them a little Mario Kart around their house with an augmented reality system built in see this. I'm so excited. I WANNA. Do the so badly it looked so fun it looked so fun it does. It doesn't hold me my head because I. Mad. because. It looks so good. Mario Kart Home Circuit, and it's one hundred dollars toy that you basically in the shape of Mario or Luigi in Kart Mario. Kart style, you drive around your house, but it has a little camera. The pops up behind the seat and the camera then beams than visual information to your switch that gets you alive camera view but then you also get a are elements you can disable other cars drive along your track and get power ups and. You know it's all we've seen so far at Promo, video Composite Video and graphics we have no idea how this works perform, but if anyone can do it smoothly Nintendo, believe. The one question I have district. For the. I because that's a huge limiting factor with most RC. Control cars the switch I don't think was designed with antennas as big as most are systems. So they can this operate past ten feet. I don't know that's GONNA limiting factor. I wonder if the car connects to your home Wifi and they're just hoping that your home wifi strong enough or something like that would be so so much latency then there would be huge latency but maybe that's why they're doing composite video because they're still trying to figure out how like maybe the video itself won't be particularly, hi, Rez or something like that. I mean it just depends what their market is if they're going for children who don't necessarily have that nostalgia of Mario Kart. Play Mario, Kart? Way Parents are going to hate this because there's going to be a tiny car like shooting around under their feet everywhere. I think parents are going to hate this because with any latency, you're GONNA get so many red shell problems at the finish line and. Broken switches. Hurling, them across the The LAS impairments do is be tech support for their kids. See Toys, right did you try resetting it? From where? No. Okay I'll reboot the router but but after after this meeting after. A one hundred dollars per cart is pretty heavy. You only get one and so if you WANNA, play this with a bunch of other kids, they gets pretty steep pretty quickly and I guess that's what they're banking on. That's a third of a cost of a next gen console. So it's it's not cheap even for physical accessory like a cart. All right that does it for our tech news section we're going to have our last sexual skipping VR this week. Because facebook connects us next week, and we'll save all discussion for announcement to come from that and from Jeremy's back on by do want to get into some science and I'm strong right now because I needed cute the music. Here. We go. Now it said for moment of sites. So I wasn't on the show last week. So we didn't have a chance to talk about Elon musk planning chips in the brains of pigs so I think it's time to chat about neuro link and actually I think it's better that we waited because we like it's always tough to comment about a demo that happens right then. Especially, a demo that drops Friday afternoon I thought that was a weird choice in terms of timing. But one I talk about the basics and then trace we can actually talk through it. So what he was a very small electrode that it was essentially a chip with these very thin wires on them and a surgical system that was able to implant that into the brains of pigs, and he showed three pigs. One that never had the device installed one that had the device installed and then removed and one that actively had the device in it. And, it was able to be controlled wirelessly and record certain signals from the pigs, brain wires to to a system across the room and then there were some extraordinary claims made about what you can do with that With that technology ongoing so I'll just stop there. That was the bulk of the demo was. Trace what was your reaction? I didn't watch the DEMO 'CAUSE I didn't want to be like exactly said about extraordinary claims there's a lot. I just did a series on my channel about BCI's I talked to three different neuroscientists in and and like neuro engineers who do. Research only one of the three mentioned neuro link and they mentioned it is a good source of funding for BBC projects because you know neuro link is similar to I. Think. Along Musk's other pet projects and other companies is they have a lot of market pressure right? They get like space x has made space technology companies probably more money by existing than by like through competition it's it's maybe even better for all of the space companies. Tesla's making more evt's appear in the world in a variety and if not just electric, but plug in electric neuro link is probably going to do the same for the BBC World. But. Is. A brain computer interfaces or B. M. is brain machine air faces are still so like. There's so much that we don't know about how things work. It's insane on the flip side of that I also acknowledged what he showed is technology that already exists which is what Elon Musk has done with other woods other companies he runs, but he's made it inside of a rapper inside of certain interfaces inside a certain designs that make it more. Interesting. So the idea of implanting a chip in a brain to record signals in real time has existed in neuroscience labs for a long time. Now, for for years there's so many papers you can read about recording signals I, think the difference here that we saw with, he miniaturized that There's more wireless technology associated to this than you would see most academic labs that do this kind of work. But there are some wireless interfaces, an academic labs, but I think the real advance I mean, the miniaturization is nothing to you know to ignore. But. That surgical device, which is the thing I want to know more about because it potentially makes like the. Installation of these devices much simpler much lower cost. Yeah. Very laborious process. Yeah. Yeah. Right now, aged yeah. Right now to get. INTO SOMEBODY'S BRAIN I've. Highlighted Jan Schuurman who she became a quadriplegic as an adult. So. Had A lot of like the brain structures required to control her own arms and legs prior to losing them because of a disorder she show developed. She could control two different robotic arms that she named Hector and Lecter. This was maybe ten years ago. And she could control them with with one set of electrodes through one implant. But the implant was constantly like they were constantly worried about it, and that's the biggest thing about NBC. I is the human body does not like having a computer connected to its brain like it will develop scar tissue things move around all the time like the brain moves around in the skull like and so they were constantly monitoring it, and that's that's what ended up ending. Her kind of I journey is is skin started to pull back from her implant and they had to completely remove it immediately and and her experiment after quite a while of her being able to do this stuff so. This implantation could be if if it minimizes potential for infection, they don't have to cut out party her skull in the same way like if there are things that you can they can do. That's Cleaner almost I guess simpler. Got To wonder what the? We understand why they need to have it be safe. And Efficient And streamlined to start to get to a critical mass where you get the benefits of the data that you you get so that you'd actually do interesting things later because we're not going to get that point until. You've had this in a bunch of people, and that's what he's pitching right now, the path to get to that but you've nothing about a compelled me from perspective of why we would want this from a user perspective today. Implanted fitbit aspect of it no. Human perspective. From an animal perspective having these in for an extended period of time is interesting like there's a lot we can learn. But I think some of the leaps made about like what some of these. Neurons signals that he demonstrated mean is a leap like we do not know that and but the idea of like miniature low cost devices that can be used by a lot of different people as trae said like you know the lowering of costs that could actually be a big deal I. think there's a lot of neuro engineers that are excited about the that kind of element of that pre market pressure coming bear. But like we're not getting this in not. Getting. This like I. Know He talked about like the the breakthrough. Classification that the FDA gave them to develop this no human getting this installed in. I feel like it's a we'll be flying on space x ships before we get something that's a practical application of this technology. This is a little more of a reach than he normally does like. Vs were very shortly. They were barely reached they already existed and he just packaged them nicely norm said you know the the space x was something that existed that he packaged in a cooler way and this is something that's a little more I. Don't know it's a little more abstract to not to use the wrong brain. Pun. It's something where people aren't necessarily going to get a practical application of a lot of neuroscience for a long time. It's still young field even. So I. Up until he started using words like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's and all that kind of stuff was like Oh this is pretty cool. Like when he showed off like. You know the surgical machine and some of the other months I was just like cool cool like awesome. This is really weird like very futuristic kind of tech. We're seeing it. If you just stopped at that part of the presentation, I would have been a so on board I think there's a lot of skepticism and appropriate skepticism from the neuroscience community because there hasn't been much information published yet about it. So we don't know much about like power signal like you know all of those kind of details there's no paper. Neurons Very. Very. Small. So like even small electrodes are going to pick up signals from lots of different neurons and like how many neurons are they recording? Is it safe in every part of the brain or can we only put them in certain parts of the brain like there's a lot to know still but it's not super cool. Yeah. So not skepticism that this like what he showed off was fake in any way but just skepticism, he hasn't released all the information yet. Yup. Need. More Info? Go need more info. Could always use more infant. Would you like to know more as I say my channel more research is needed. Just across the board. All right. Well, we've reached that point of the show where. Trace. Let us know more about your channel. Science videos every idea at least one series a month. Each series is between three and five video. So you'll get a lot of stuff in a really compact space release them over about a week. So you can learn a lot I. usually try and interview people highly recommend since we're talking about the the brain engineer on Charlene Lethal and Jessica were all amazing neuro engineers from across the country who talked to me for that, and you can find it at YouTube dot com slash traits Dominquez. Or Trace Dominguez anywhere on the Internet. Awesome include links of course, in a all the places where the podcast is posted need you description as well short anything you WANNA. Give a shout out to this week I'm up to my usual shenanigans but I think on a Twenty third for the Commonwealth Club I'm. Talking to Michael Ian Black from the state and like Stella and you know a million different things he has a book out about Fatherhood his his son is going off to college has a lot of reflections on experienced I'm excited about that. Very. Cool. Awesome and of course, next week. WE'LL BE FOLLOWING Connect and announcements hopefully coming out of there and Germany will be back for that discussion afterwards. Thank you so much trace for joining us this week. Thank you all there for listening. Thank you folks who were creating a new intro pieces for us if you want to set. Great One. Always happy to accept them. We'll put them into our Cuban, play them if you up so you can always just twitter. Upload soundcloud foul or email them to me Norman at tested dot com same with our altro throws this. This most re one is critical by user great job as always I've not listened to it. So let's enjoy it for the very first time. Together. Onto the beach. Long. Walked discount coupons at lawns. Drugstores. Santa Cruz beat four and walk. In the War California said Lord Joaqu I don't know what that is. You guys do that. All you want. Those things has tick well done. Great job. Great job. and. If you don't know what that is, look it up the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk will be. We'll go back. Or? Has Week. Next door.

Jordan Peele's Us

"Attention. Please be advised. The following episode contains spoilers don't say we didn't warn you. Home listening to this or on your way to your worker listening at work just be weary of people who have no personalities because. Nerd on. What is everyone? Welcome to note on the podcast you didn't need, but you deserve where all of nerd are. Welcome. Even if you're just this shadow version of yourself or just us at Justice. The Justice league. We're doing something different right now. This is what I like to call Boehner episode or bonus episode. It's just a little small crew. Let me introduce you to the entire cast today. I'm Cory, and I'm Tom, and that's it. Yes. And this episode is brought to you in part by our patrons over at patriotic fervent home. If you're new to patriot allows you to do for less than a Cup of coffee a month, you can support your favorite creators such as nerd on. And you get some cool stuff like bonus episodes and direct contact with us. Discord a lot of fun stuff during the community joined the nerd on nation. Yeah. Nation on nation, Tom. What are we what are we doing here today? Why are we coming with a bonus episode because we talked about something that wasn't on a normal schedule, and we had to bring it up because all we love you. And we love this filmmaker, and we love this film called us. And so in a normal episodes. We don't only go through the initial reactions the brief synopsis guest at grump the production as well as our favorite parts, and then our favorite characters qualms. And if you have time at the end, we good, and we'll try to do something like that a little looser. I mean, it's just the two of us just just us. So I think it's gonna be a lot of fun. But yeah, so we're talking about this is Jordan Peele. Sophomore horror film, get out of his affirmation. He said he's making three of these what he calls, social horrors, which are really fascinating to me. I'm a big fan of it. I know you're a big fan of horse trilogy. Yeah. And the idea of making a social thriller, especially in the day of social media, medical correctness. Right. It's it's a really interesting topic to play on because it's not a new fear, but a more relevant fear than it ever has been and I'm really excited about it. Because you know, with less people as much as we love the crew, we love you guys who watch it because you know, you're one of our viewers who watch it. This'll be interesting because we'll have two people will have a little bit more time to go in deep dive into it. So if you're ready in buckle up, and that's go. We felt we felt that for those you watching at home on YouTube. We felt a little empty so he filled the table with a few few knickknacks here a gift from Josh. Yeah. So it looks nice. So since it's something we're gonna be talking about it is a movie it is a complete project. Are we going to do a guest that ground? I think we. Could we could still have a right at the end. Yeah. I guess there's at least two of us here. So I think I think it's the word. Yeah. So if everyone's at home is new to guess grump it at one out of five at the end of one being the lowest inviting the highest no matter how higher load is your the grump. If you're the lowest one the group so out of us to one of us. Tom. I think because usually we have this rule where you can guess ourselves to us we need it, just I guess you. I guess me. I think I honestly think it's going to be me, actually. I think I'm gonna be the growth of that possess showed your card some vote for you to core. Our initial reactions. Why don't you start us off since you have? No, no votes on you. I thought with me so yeah, we went to go watch the limb Lee nearby where we live which is my wife yet. What your watching? Where I mean, this is a smaller theatre in terms of like, it's not a big franchise century or AMC like an indie theatre. Yeah. Which I like, I always feel like sound coys little interesting. But anyways, the film itself like watching get out than watching this. I get it was a big viral marketing thing because as a Facebook video like black dude meets his white girlfriend's parents. And it was kind of like, oh, this is funny. Oh shit is real. And it showed the like the the ink blot of like from the mind of Jordan peels, like wait. And then you know, so after seeing get out after getting kademi nomination for best script writing. He won he won and forgetting that in for a horror genre, which is huge and making big, you know, things like us had a lot to put on it. So when I watched it like a lot of weight on is on it. But like also I wanna see because get out was like boyfriend meets girlfriend's parents. Right. And this is a horror film about that. But this is like a family is getting attacked by Dopplinger family. So it's like how does this work like this felt much more supernatural to begin with so little grander as yeah. So I very much enjoyed it. Because I left the theater with a lot more questions and get out did get out kind of did a very good way of like explain the entire movie to me in, you know, with the little, you know, source video that they had in the film, but this one like, it makes me think it reminds me a lot of like again, my backing in film theory. And you know, when I was in school and learning about that stuff. So I loved it. And I say I liked it more than get out. Yeah. Wow. I've agree with you. I think like this one get out as well. I think I had. Hi expectations going in. And I had mentioned this off Mike before and it's always dangerous for me going in with high expectations because there's a greater margin of being let down, but I did keep in mind. I was like, okay. There's also the trap that a lot of people fall into their their films. There's sophomore films of it not really living up to the expectation because they have this like burst of energy. I was related to like opening night on a show. Like if you're on a stage show opening nights usually the best show because you've had this build up and build up and build up and build up. And then finally you let like all this energy you've had out, right? And then the second time around it's kind of like, okay. Let me repeat the steps. If I can I mean, it's called a sophomore slump for so like for this. I was really surprised 'cause I went into that mentality to is like, okay, I have vacations, but it's probably going to be a good it left me with more questions. But that doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad thing in this sense. I think it's a good thing. 'cause stop provoking get out was intellectual, but this was on a whole 'nother level of like, I I mean, you came back with us to my apartment we talked for like an hour and a half about this film afterwards script for those. But it didn't it didn't. It didn't spoonfeed you every little bit of information. That allowed you to fill in the gaps with whatever you wanted it to be. And I think in this phone, particularly we'll get into like sim Balaji things leader on. But I think the gaps are important in this sense. Because I think they can represent a lot of different things. So alternately I love the theatre liking it more than get out as well. And I mean talking about like just a director for like sophomore slumps. I love the man. But it's kinda like he kind of experience is very very harshly. Neil blonde. Cam came out fucking nine was banger. Yeah. It's probably one of my favorite that was. That was easy. And then like, I love the film. But like it's didn't do as well. And that's what happens. Sometimes there's some things that just don't connect. Didn't it didn't hit the Mark quite the same. Yeah. So since we now done our initial reactions that would bring us to our brief synopsis history as well as production. Snaps this as best I can specify can jump in. If you feel the need, but we start out with a family goes to the. Yeah, the synopsis the whole thing is that the this family's going on a vacation that turns out awry, but we start with actually this little girl in nineteen eighty six with her family at the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk, and obviously her parents don't really get along. It's not really a cohesive relationship. There's not a lot of communication going on. And through that miscommunication between the parents. She actually sneaks off and wanders into this house of mirrors down by the beach and with the find yourself. Yeah. And she ends up running into adopting or herself, and she sees her and then it cuts to adult. No it to their they they're in a the or the child's child's psychiatric. And they're talking about her. She won't talk and that they should courage her a dance. He's ESP and then fast forward cer- present day. And she's in the family with her car with Winston Duke killing it in this movie, by the way, shout out in her two kids, and they're heading back to Santa Cruz, which is where this all started. So she's a little tents already one thing leads to another. They wanna go to the beach. However, she fights it, and she opens up to her husband about this experience that happens, and we learned the rest of the story as it goes on as well. So we learned that she met her her mirror self, and we get to see a little bit more of that if they turn around, and it's exactly her and she said, it's been happening more and more. And I feel like a lot of these coincidences that keep happening means that she's getting closer. They have their beach day. They see a guy had been killed at the beach and the sun actually runs into someone who's like dripping with blood and scissors gets lost. They finder fast forward to the night of the night of suddenly there is a family in the driveway at eleven eleven eleven PM, which is. So, but you know, immediately lupita is like calling the cops get your shoes on. Let's go Winstons. I got this got this. He doesn't have it. He gets overpowered and they're all forced to face themselves. They're d'appel gangs, quote, unquote. And basically it had come from lupita shadow. Character named red tells the story about a girl who had a shadow and everything the girl had the shadow had a terrible version of it. So she felt the the girl fell in love the shadow girl had to be paired with the shadow version of the husbands. So it's this weird kind of connection. The reason they've come up from the underground is to do an event that they've come up with called the untethering basically going to separate it and take your place. I'm gonna summit up here really quick basically horror ensues blahdy stabbing. A lot of people are killed and eventually goes to is not a singular event as the neighbors that they meet on the beach. Also, everyone in the world has adopted ganger. And we eventually get it to the point where lupita red takes the sun, the actual real son and takes him down to the underground and lupita regular character has to go. Find them we find out through this confrontation that the lupita that we have been following through. This whole film is actually the shadow version of herself that day she met her at Santa Cruz, the shadow version strangled her and locked her up down in the underworld and went back until which is why she couldn't talk. Been had to go to dance and stuff. Like that is because people don't know how to talk over time. She learned how to so. It's this weird kind of issue bad is she good who's the bad guy here. Is there a bad guys a self identity kind of store that goes on of like who's good who's bad who has a soul is a soul. What's our purpose in the world? You the last frame is is loopy to looking at her son and her son gives her a look, it's not confirmed. But definitely gives her look like something is up. I know you ain't the right person here. It's happening. I think it's he knows because he puts on his Massey. Whereas where wolf mass throughout the entire, but but in more, so it's like he puts on a mask. And so does she right. And so it's like they're both wearing their masks sim. So that was that was pretty like two minutes to bad. Yes. So go see the movie because it skipped a lot. Like, we said, it's a Jordan Peele sophomore film, render record by Jason Blom, you know, same blunt how studio so horror film again. It's a high concept film at you know, has driven peel has set the bar yet. Again, bloom wrote no-no Jordan Peele director Jason produced got same producer production as jit-get get out. But again, like J Jordan Peele has proved yet again to like elevate the horror genre in terms of like box office sales as well as it can do it's kinda like Nolan Nolan can do a high concept film as well. As a blockbuster same time that is also academy nomination. My joining pills doing within his the Johner he's playing in which is horror. Yeah. So it's kind of like a cool. You know comparison the production company monkey pop productions Jordan company, can I just to that that his opening for the animated for his company is so good. Yeah. It's all like a train. And then it's a. Dismembered hand during the. Yeah. Distributed by Universal Pictures render acted by Jordan Peele produce Jason blunt. We all know blunt house conjuring all the all the horror films that we love in Cooper. This is first time directing producing Daniel. Daniel loopy all of the Paul Thomas. Anderson films, so punch drunk love, the master of phantom thread, all of those and ready player one produced. Yeah. Wow. So it was like what mix of generous, Sean McKittrick who did dined Darko get out and black clansmen. So this is the I think this Sean McKittrick kind of like the get out person for Jordan Killa. Yeah. Beatrice Sequeira who did the chorus favorite films amazing spider, man? One and two one of those is one of my favorites. The gift with joy legit sandwiches. Amazing. Upgrade with Logan. Logan, logan. I don't know. I know the the Tom hardy. Venom venom light. Yeah. It's have you seen it? It's so good. It's better than way better than venom in did get out as well. The cast is lupita ongo who did force awakens in Black Panther as an Kia until twelve years. Winston Duke, who we all know boku. We have watched. He's I list can I just say like what a difference in performance from Black Panther to this. He's such a good character. He he's he's enjoyable. He is every time he's on screen. You can't look away from him. He he's kind of like, I I would say like in this thing this film. It's like high. It's high concept, but also like the characters in there as well. As like the horseback allowed to have that broad appeal to. Yeah. Shahada right. Joseph who played Zora the daughter who also be in linking twenty nineteen. Really? Yeah. I've no idea. That's all that hope. She's because she's great. Evan alex. Who plays Jason the son also Pluto, if they want to know who the dog in your son is who is most known recently in kidding, which Kerry. Oh shit. That's him. Yeah. Okay. The release date we're talking about Martin March twenty second for the United States people's. And it really one of the books box office so far right because this recording this at the end of the opening weekend. Yes, right now, it has made eighty seven million as of this is Sunday, this is recording this and the budget was only twenty million. Yeah. So it's doing fine. Yeah. It's great which is again, so get happy highest r rated horror film opening for you know, wherever for all time and this beat that. Yeah. He's to to run times one hundred sixteen minutes. So let's little bit lesson to allow it didn't feel horror films are typically short. Yeah. I know they're usually ninety minutes. Yeah. And it's interesting. Oh, man. That's interesting. It didn't feel like two hours to me. I could've honestly I could've watched another hour that the Ron spill my rating. The Ron tomatoes score on tomatoes ninety four from critics in sixty nine from audience. Interesting. It is pretty I've seen online so far. It's been pretty polarized. Like a lot of people still like it. But enjoyed get out more. We'll it's open. It's open ended. It's like get out. It's not open ended. It just ends. Right. But almost was opened it. I know it was the original for those. You don't know what I'm saying about the original ending that he tested with audience. I believe is that our hero gets arrested at the end. Yeah. For killing a bunch of white people and did not test well with audiences. So they changed it to his friend saving the day, which I think is a stronger ending because that's the guy who's been saying the whole time don't go so three hundred seventeen critics did ninety four percent two thousand four hundred audience for six percent. So it's a pretty big sample. It'd be like, yeah. It's pretty across the board. Oh, we also don't listen rotten tomatoes. So again appeared on like, I said earlier like, it's a high concept film. So again, the mass appeal sometimes gets lost. Because again, it doesn't give you all the strewn financers as we talked about on the show. You said a really good thing. Not you compared it to Hitchcock while the conjuring movies are more one of the James one style. But like, it's it's it's more to me those are more traditional horror films where there's more. Jump scares. But the the plot is so simple. And it's like family gets haunted. They have to go save themselves know that it's bad. None of those is a great those are those are well-made. And the the symbolism is like probably two layers, this is kind of like at least several layers and they're up to open interpretation as he said on record. Like, I didn't wanna tell everyone everything once you to fill yourself. There are things like we talked about were the creation of the underworld and the tethering and all that stuff. There's no explanation for it. And so at least people like wondering at the end of the day like where did it come? And there's some people who who prefer to have those answers than some people who prefer to fill in the blanks. I think it just comes down to to that a little bit as well. Yeah. So how do you like your stories? Yeah. And I mean, we we've had con- we've seen conversations with people online who were like, you know, narrative, it's a very powerful film. But like again, it's some people compared to get out obviously because it's the same running director. And they say, it's good. But for me, I liked it. But I kinda like those high brow things. So where's that bring us? Now. I mean, we could. Just talk about a little bit. We can talk about in open interpretation. And why that's something we enjoy. Maybe some of our thoughts on that. So what we're talking about? Everyone at home is that start with the creation of them. Yeah. So at at the third act, the final climactic fight between red and Adelaide Adelaide. Adelaide they're talking to each other. And a red is explained. Like, we don't know where we were created. It was many years ago at the beginning of the film. There's a text of factoid of saying like under the, you know, the soil of the US there's thousands and thousands of miles of railroads and tunnels and subways systems that are not used for and have no purpose at all even abandoned. And so this is were all of the Daba dinger's of you yourself. You know, your loved ones all live. And no one knows when it happened or how it was created kinda like, you know, man, you know, like who who's really there? What happened I but the people who are getting or the egg. Yeah. People who were then cloned were created to control the we don't know who started with the government created us to control those up above they they learned how to flash phrasing. But they learned how to clone the fr- the flesh, but not the soul. Yeah. So essentially, the the whole premise of the film is these two people because they are human sharing a soul. Yeah. And it's really interesting. And the thing is kinda like the rule that's kind of been said through the first explanation with read to Adelaide to our thoughts. It's Adelaide to read is the fact that I the world underground is pretty much like doomed to live the destiny of the people above. Yeah. So like, she had no control of meeting had no free will no free will to like find the love of her life. Gabe, Winston, Duke. No free will to have a child it all played second fiddle to whatever the people who are living above were. And there's some really interesting imagery that goes onto this film where you see the people above living their lives and the people down below must. 'cause they share the soul must basically act out the same thing here or in a really kind of demented way. Like when you eat. They eat what they have. And that happens to be fucking rabbits, like live rabbits, not cooked Hossam for baby live, raw rabbits. Yeah. And she has a line in there too. Where she says, you know. Yeah. Your son? You had a C section. I had to do it myself. Yeah. So it's like it's this weird. Almost land of the forgotten kind of thing because they were created and built by humans and one of the interpretations I came up with for what? I honestly think they can be Representative of a lot of different people one of the ones that came to mind at first when she first said the government created us to control the people of above. And then forgot about us. Like, there's a increasing thing in the US about the government forgetting about vets. I mean, we had Kevin Conroy on here. Talking about that. And he's got his about it. I was gonna say home for vets check it out if you can. But it it's a really interesting fact that like we create these soldiers to control the world up above we don't like someone sums doing when you defend ourselves, we create these armies, and we send them to war. And then when they come back damaged toss him aside. And so I think it's kind of in line with that a little bit. Yeah. The disenfranchised innocent. I mean, you know, again as you heard him beginning spoilers for everything, you know, Winston Duke, Gabe. I was calm escape from now on he asked like who are you and then red laughs and said, we're Americans, and you know, Jordan mentioned it from the very beginning. We are own worst enemy, and I mean, everyone who's listening right now has. Experienced at some point some time that like if you're not connected on the internet. It's I'm like there is a a minor civil war that happens between people and it's not like what's so bad right now. It's kind of always been there. But now social media's connecting now we see. Yeah. Now, we see you know, back in the eighties. You had as a little worse now. But back in the eighties. You had twenty mutual friends. Yeah. Right now, the average person has two thousand mutual. So it's kinda like it's then you're connected to their friends. You're connected to their and so we we see things. So at such a high pace this film is just talking about us. Yeah. You know? And I was talking about it with Corey like a lot of ways you can think about it. It's they're getting terrorized by a family who is identical to them. And a lot of the times when we think about wherever you're stances on foreign or political, you know, stature on all stuff a lot of times, we as humans the way we have to examine our situations is is them versus us. You know, who believe in what I believe in whether whoever I vote for who. Ever. I whatever deity I believe in. It's our belief versus your belief. And at the end is like the film called us. It is a family that is identical has lived the exact same life in a way, you know, they're both fighting for their right to live. Yeah. And I liked the conversation. According I had at the very end was kind of like red might have left the underground and live her whole life. And I think to keep to keep confusion. Let's just go read the girl in the red for now. You know, it's the real so red go ahead. So just want to let them know who we're we're talking about. So I hold on. I'm going to confuse so red is the one who starts the uprising. She's the original Adelaide. So Adelaide Adelaide is the one we follow through film. So Adelaide escaped from this underbelly of society, a little girl that they're trapped in enslave to live in and through. That fact, she, you know, found a lifer self she learned how to speak. She learned how to dance she did all she maybe a little quirky. She may not fit in exactly right. Right. But she has children. She wants to protect your children. She knows the dangers of the people that she left behind. They arrive. Does that mean that she has a soul to the questions like they cloned flesh? But they were never able to clone a soul. But it's like is a sole something that's given or something that's grown. And so it's kinda also that thought too. Yeah. So and I like there's little has little giveaways throughout the film about how she's not quite right human. I mean, she is human right. She's not quite like, there's a there's an interesting thing that I always that was interesting in the it was interesting the trailer bug meals like that's not on time. And they kept it in the movie where she's getting time, and she snapping to all four beats which no one does anyone who knows music at all you click on the two in the four. But she's clapping offer them to all the beats. And it didn't occur to me until I was watching the movie that I was like, oh my God. It's because she's not from here. It's it's not something she grew up with you know, she learned to dance when she was younger, but it's not just a little. Idiosyncrasies not that are off. So not a soulful thing. Yeah. In the ways to she reacts of things or even when she says to to. What's her? What's her name? Tim Deckers Kate Kate. She's like don't talk it. She didn't say little phrases. She used instead of being like, oh, I'm not a big talker. She's just like, I don't talk. Yeah. And so the little things like that just were like really precious to me as far as character-building goes. So everyone at home listening to this or on your way to your worker listening at work just be weary of people who have no personalities because. This might be from underground. But yeah, I mean, we could go on and on about theories all day. I would love to hear our audiences theories. If you have some sentiment to us. Let us know what you think of ours. I also the last thing I want to say about as far as the the kind of speculative overall theory of everything goes is that there's also a an argument to say that they also represent a part of us that's lost as far as a prime side of us to conform with being on social media and doing all these things and losing connection with the part of ourselves. And throughout the film. We see the kids kind of throughout their own devices the daughters on her on the entire time the alcohol the Dinkal Berg family because that's the one you compare bekker's hijackers. They're having a complete automated house the backup generator with each other. With the bow the, you know, the two fucking development twins and like hate everyone. Yeah. And they have the the nice car, the flare gun all all the things that this other fan the the Wilson's want. Yeah. And it just kinda shows like what how that looks like. Yeah. So I think I think they could also represent that part of ourselves. That's lost within this age of like. I would almost call it an age of solitude, right? I said this to you guys when I got home, I was sitting in my wrote, the movie theater, and I looked to my left, and I looked to my right? And everyone's just in a screen. Oh, corey's wife, and I were going food seats, but they were just in screens. And it's just an interesting thing to to see before. And it didn't occur to me at the moment. I was just like on the phone. So I got on my phone like what you do. But after the movie, I was like holy shit. Like, we've lost a part of society in a sense that no one really wants to talk to anyone anymore. And that's kind of the thing is kinda like, you know, you've talked, but you and your wife talked about a lot. So you guys don't do small talk. You hate small small talk that to me. It's like any type of talk and lost of that talk. It is part of it. Right. It's not like you don't it's not that. You don't like small talk, you prefer personal actual conversation. Right. But it's also that like strengthen ability of US House the way that we can talk about something that we all share like we all share the same sky. Yeah. Like wherever you're sitting with somebody. If you're seeing the same room, you guys talk about the same sky at least, but is that loss in the net cover flex inside part where? She's like, yeah. Did some Bill talks ball blog? I it happens because loss, and I'll open up a little bit more of a personal sense. It's like I've you felt the strain of like we're so connected to everyone in anything. Be yet. We still somehow experience loneliness. Yeah, it's like house even possibly there is there's a great quote. I can't remember who who to credit to. So maybe you guys can help me out or find the exact quote because I'm going to butcher it. Find essentially he said, it's so strange to live in a world that were so connected. And yet so desperate for connection. And I forget who I don't think that's the right quote. But essentially what you summarize up, and I feel that I really feel like this. This movie is kind of the same that I think that they can represent that part of us. That's that's lost at least I lost. Anyway, I wanna ask you. We'll we'll move on from theories from there because we're really you them or Peru for me, you you because I think I think theory wise, we could talk for hours and hours and hours. But seriously, I send us in your theories. What was your favorite part? Parts my favorite, plural. Specifically, my favorite part is the end final fight the dance sedans firefight because the the tethered remix version of five on it. Yeah. But on bomb, and like it's by the way that is what it's called. It's called the tethered remix. So it has Adelaide fighting against red. And it's cut in such a way where it's cut to the music as well as to the striking moments because Adelaide has a golf club or no she has of fire poker poker? And at and read has, you know, her golden shooters sheers that they use for the untethering, and the cool thing is that like they juxtapose it with shots of both of them learning how to dance when they were young and Adelaide was told to learn how to dance those you can express trauma, the happened her in the maybe start to talk again. And then since red lived in the underground she had to learn how to dance to and she mentions. In the film. I should thank you. Because of you. I had I gotta dance. And like that's something. You know? It's something a bit of a soul. And I think that's the rule if you live under there you have to buy whatever's up. There's rule. Yeah. But the entire time you see like these shots. Just kind of like almost jarring. But it's like, they're very forceful and you hear like the grunting but things like I love who's at Adelaide here. Rooting for the entire film to get her family out of their finder son get out of there. Get others nightmare is going against this force yet in red portrays this force of like, I'm controlled I created this revolution is uprising that we're going to take back our our freedom. And she's just controlled. She is cont- like dominating the entire fight the entire time with ease with ease. And it's also creepy. It's fucking Volvo from Seoul caliber terrible removes is just like she anticipates everything that that Adelaide is gonna do. And again, the entire in the same and the creepy thing with the performance of the. Films. The film is that everyone that is a d'appel ganger typically has zero motion in the can't talk, and they can't talk. And so like this. You know, this version of Adelaide red is like is kind of in that same sounds like oh is this race. Even though she was from the up above in. It's just an amazing sequence. That's one of my favorite parts for me. I agree with you on that. I want to touch on that just a little bit. Because I think it's a it's a really good visual of like because I forgot to mention this. But I also think that something that could be talked about or argued again for these people is that like people's past traumas and not dealing with them or failures. And she ends up at the place where all the trauma started trauma, traumas and failures. I think, you know, especially in a society where everything's curated. We we have issue admitting fault or even admitting that we were wronged in a way because we have to be right. And we that's a that's a human. And there's a lot of pressure to not talk about past traumas of that. So I think in this moment, it's a really beautiful representation of. Kinda struggling with that. Even though we don't know at that point. Even though you're not you, and I figured it out pretty early Tom actually, you figured out before I did that they had switched spaces five area beginning even in that moment, it's it's a fight for their lives for both of them. And it's really cool. My favorite moment is actually the the story that red tells when I get there about the the girl in her shadow, I think it's a really really beautiful well written way to physician. Because it gives you everything you need to know not only about every character, but about read at the same time. And that's the moment I figured out that they had switched spots. Because once I heard her voice because you feel you trail is a lot. I just showed it to a lot of people because excited I didn't watch. I watch trailers I don't shy away from them. But then I don't try to watch them over and over. I every time I try to talk to someone about us coming out. They didn't see it. I was like. Watch this. I felt like it was my job to show people this movie. So I had watched it a couple of times, and there's a scene in the trailer one girl in the house, chokes the other. So as soon as red started talking chat like this. I was like oh they switched. Her vocal cords are broken either. I thought they switched or thought Adelaide the when we were following had like choked her when she was young. But that's besides the point that story is such a love when you can make your audience forget that they're learning exposition. I think it's a really good. I mean like we talked about this earlier like yes Lord of the rings. Just throws exposition at you in in the beginning. I was I was making a slight. But it's still like Lord of the rings. But the way it's done. I forget about it. Because they're showing you the imagery along with very poetic with they're not just being like, here's the information. You in New York City. It's nineteen sixty like there's a lot of that. Just do it bad. Yeah. That don't do it. Well at all. And I just think it's it was like a such and also to get X position halfway through. The film. Also, really wonderful. Yeah. Well, almost thirty five minutes in. Yeah. So that whole scene was really great. I I really want to just give a shout out to all these actors being able to it's not as characters but play two characters who are similar, right? Yeah. Because qualities, but they're not the same. And I think they all did really really well at that. It's not an easy thing to do. You can see like people get like Tom hardy got praised for playing twins. Venom. Yeah. And so like, this is this is just that. This is exactly that same thing. And I thought they canal that out of the park, I think lupita, especially in this scene as red really terrified me had so much control. And. Yeah. That whole scene for me. Like stuck with me? And it's all I could think about for a long time. And the imagery of like, you said, there's an there's a part where red smashes Adelaide Adelaide's head against this glass table, and she's talking about the untethering and the glass starts to fracture and the glasses reflecting Adelaide Onder and read and and they're both their images are getting cracked in the Gladys that was a really nice subtle imagery of breaking the the person. I mean, the cool thing is will fill that part. Also sets the dynamic 'cause lupita is the first build on the interim the cast and so it shows again, she like gave Winston Duke who plays the father the switch at that moment. Yeah. He pretty much is like calling the shots weather by like, you know, pleading or just making decisions are being the tough guy. Crazy crazy and red is the you know, definitely the alpha of her clan and she just buy clicks mouth. There's just like tells them what to do. And they know what. To do. And so they all start dispatching family members. And it's also really interesting because there's a switch there in that scene. Where like you said Winston dukes characters calls the shots. But this is the moment where Lupis annadale annadale. Steps up. Right. She's telling everyone to be quiet while they're listening to red. Yes. She's telling gave to stop she's telling her kids. Everything's gonna be okay. Because she's from this world the rules. But like it's a very because like before the character that she plays very reserved and scared and doesn't really know what to do. But it's interesting to see that dynamic still see the trauma. Right. And so she plays a very, passive if not introverted character, and he'll the family come. Yeah. And even then after like, multiple bodies have been murdered and they make a really good joke about that. Which earns like, I'm driving. It's like, no. High-skill count for one person. I kill one person. I've killed two people. I have the highest twins like no you killed one. Twin killed the other still one each. Yeah. But they at that point too. When they watch the news, and then we're gonna stay here. And then at late says like no you don't get to make decisions. Yes. Base of my felt my back throw out when they started making home alone. References not knowing what they were. And the kids were like, what's that micro machine, home alone or something the whole audience groaned? I just want to our entire audience when I do wanna do special as well for favorite part of before the the disaster of everything and he part with Winston Duke because he was just like he was wanting to get it on. Head usually like not to quote, the setting show. He was American dad. He was like, I mean, I think he's definitely the comic relief him in maybe Tim and Elizabeth I would say he's more. So the comic relief. But in such a nice way that it's not like in your face like, he's not an idiot. But just the thing like when he's like what you take my wallet. Take the car take the boat. Nobody wants vote, but also he's like when Adelaide his explain it's very dark moment. Which was like Honey this mirror girl is gonna come. After me. He's like well kick your ass. I mean. Chad. And she shoot her mouth is ajar. And she's like shitting me like, okay. Sorry joke. Fetter I actually really love that scene. I think that Jordan really wrote a very honest portrayal of a husband and wife in that situation because he's not like a lot of times, you see these fucking horror movies. And someone says something like the character says there's a mirror girl chasing me. And the husband's like what the fuck. Are you talking about Indus doesn't believe? Right. But he does. And he like he's like making jokes to lighten the mood. But even says he's like I'm sorry bad joke. I'm just trying to like blind. All like, give me a minute. It's a lot. But he never like he never undermines her her as your shout to Gabriel Byrne's character and hereditary because he did not give a flying fuck about that main. Karen, see it. Now, he wherever's no not care. So I just I think that's a really refreshing thing in horror to see that. Like, I couldn't find a moment where any of them were like, that's like, let's do this dumb thing. Like, they were very competent people. And I think it was I think it's important to see in her anyway, so favorite favorite character favorite character. Only one only one only one only one whether it's the tether untethered versions. I will cave. So real quick. This is my favorite character. But I'd love to give a shot at too high decker because I'm a huge fan of Tim and Eric like since day one of their stupid little like eleven minutes show, the greatest fucking comedy show. I'm a huge fan, and he's become this great actor over the past couple years him, and he's and he's he's a bunch of stuff but him his duality between his regular self. And then his tethered self great. There's he's like what the fuck where where to go. I don't see him. But also when Elizabeth moss like dying, and then he puts his hand out. And then loops back the little sleep back hair. Out to him. That's not he's not my favorite character. But I loved seeing him in there. And I thought he did it really well. Oh, this is tough because it's a tie for me. I think I think I have to give a shout out to Elizabeth moss tethered. Okay. 'cause she was great. Elizabeth Monarch Mazdas a horror villain was actually a really good idea. I loved the she wouldn't stop her regular self win stop talking. So the tethered self didn't have a voice. Yeah. So it's like duality of things. This is a really great turn when she sees her husband dying. She can't end also she's like crying, and then turns the laughing. Yeah. It's like oh God. I think my favorite character is. Adelaide adelaide. I think so. Hope we're not saying Adelaide in its Atta line, you look it up. I'm pretty sure I just wanna make sure I try just realize all of a sudden now can't tell, but I think it's wonderful because of the the layers that go into that character that you don't know from the beginning Adelaide Wilson. Okay. Thank you just want to be forty minutes in and we may have just been saying the wrong name the whole time. But I think I think that the most because of the amount of layers that goes into it. And like definitely this is one of those movies. You have to see twice like, or at least I do I have to see this again. Because now having my theory confirmed that she switched spots. I wanna go back because I didn't think of it right away. I didn't think of until the family was there the fireplace. I wanna go back and watch because I think Peter really knocked the park the amount of thought and foreshadow that has to go into her building the character of Adelaide. Fascinates me, an anti like her character arc. So I think she's my favorite with Charlotte. Winston duke. Yeah. And as game as gave as evil husband. No funny thing my favorite characters read. My favorite Gators read. Because once you know, what happens you're like. Oh my God. She got stuck in this shitty place and had to live her life. As like, no wonder like, and that's the thing. I loved about her story is like, and we Corey and I talked about this. There isn't antagonised, but there's no good or bad person. Because everyone's just trying to fight for their piece of the pie instead of growing the pie. Right. Right. And it's part of me that rooted for red. I was like I kinda wanna both to make it in. And that's the thing because they both have children. They both care about their children. And like, even like Adelaide was I didn't want, you know, the evil daughter and the evil son to die. Yeah. And she thought she can save them. And when you find out like, oh, she's the the original from the underground world. It's like, oh, that's those are people, but read is kinda like I really liked the fact like she got stuck in this place. And then sews all she had all she converted three years. Yeah. All she can do just like try to get out. Find a way and the thing is like again, there's one sole technically for every two people for tethered and untethered person is one soul and kind of like where you are determines where your soul is. And when one elevated to the higher world like one grue- soil, and then hers like her her she turned into nothing, but like revenge, and she. She she had her. So she had her hens across America shirt. Yeah. And that's another reason that I was leaning towards it also being a metaphor for vets end and the homeless because that's what hands across America zoo, didn't really do anything. Well, like actually did coast to coast New York to Long Beach, and it had like ten people or like ten dollars to hold a spot. Yeah. Had a lot of money. But like, we're like we. A homeless person on the street, obviously, it's all thing. Yeah. So it's like, you know, putting on a face kinda thing. But I could see that I read and I like adults. When you find that out. It's so you get very sympathetic about it. Yeah. Very sympathetic that sucks. It's just because like where they live. That's what they become and against imagine going from coach she was old enough to remember the world. So imagine going from your world to having to live down there and eat raw rabbit and do like that. That's all you would think about one hundred percent of the time. You're humanity is stripped from you. And it's like what do we turn ourselves into again? That's what happens again with vets like war. And you know, all the terrible things that see all the things that they come back to. It's like, you know, there's a there's a reason why they have a lot of, you know, suicide rates, very unfortunate. But I yeah. I just love red story. Yeah. But yeah, second second to Gabe. Right. I want to give a couple of shots to moments before we move onto rating. They're not quite my favorite part. You don't have any qualms. Well, okay to quantity like jumping ahead. All I wanna give shot at to Gabes characters starting the boat with his face. Yeah. To trap the other one's leg in the in the rudder. I thought that was great because it's it's really tense moment. Where his he's fighting. He's there to standstill right because they're the same. So the stance. Stronger. Definitely do you? Okay. He's he's holding this. And he kinda like, let's it go but puts his head down and smacks the motorboat because and we see that foreshadowed early on that he has to hit it to start it and tears of the other guys legs and kills them. And I thought that was brilliant. I liked failure. Who was the Amazon Alexa, ever home? Everyone home turn your up. So real Alexa. Call the police, and then turns to fuck the police by end of that was I was great call the police playing fuck the police also the cool thing about the female. Theme to the movie with that like the fucking tethered remake. Oh, yeah. It's so cool here in the film, and you're like, oh, this feel so good. And thinking about it when you're walking home alone is really creepy. Oh, for sure I was thinking about as I was falling asleep last night. And I had to check my room because I was like, whoa. Is there someone in here am I here? And that's the things like this sleep rouses. Film lets you be afraid of your own self. Yeah. And that's really cool. That's really cool to like the scariest thing that might see is someone that looks just like me is me. So. And then and then read blending the car. Oh, yeah. I love that qualms qualms. Okay. Do you have any idea? Start. I want wanna have to. Okay, we'll again. So for me qualms. Everyone's like, oh, it means. You don't like it. Oh, it just means. We're analyzing. Yeah. And so for me like, I co- conversation point. I wish I knew more, right? I we spent a lot of times. Like, I don't know. I don't know. Like who created? How's it been how they have that little factoid in the beginning of the film? And then read explains it kinda like how does it work? What are the exact rules? Like if she was the real one. How does that? Would you like short film describing the government creating them? I don't I don't know. And that's the thing is that what you're talking about. I would like twenty minutes to show it, right? Yeah. And it's like, maybe I would wanna see it. But maybe I wouldn't wanna see because it's like that's the thing. That's like do you do relishing? The fact that you continually get to talk about it and get to wonder, and or do you like no I wanna be able to be spoon fed. All this information could towing the line. You could tell that line of like they could explain it, and you can go that's done. They should've done it. How I thought it was. Yeah. You know, what I mean or it's like I like. Allow L hundred retu- Birdman, and I talk about it a lot to it's like American audiences need explanation for everything they do not find it comfortable to just not. No. And I think that's what Jordan Peele wants us to feel. We we don't get to feel comfortable with his film. It's kind of like why Chris rock loves twelve years a slave. He's like, this is the first slavery film that you don't get to feel comfortable with the end. Right. And it's like we shouldn't try to ask a film to try to again, I've says try to impress us or try to be like we have to meet the film on its own terms and meet it, and it's playing ground. It didn't diminish anything. But it's like, it's just that's what you want. I stay awake at night for two things. David fincher, Steve Jobs with Christian bale in it never happened. And then now knowing where the fuck did the Tenneco. His. Are the walls mine's the same? I wish I wish I wouldn't call it a coma guest. But I just I could go for more. Like, I said, I watch three hours of this. If they wanted to fill in some blanks. It didn't it moved. Well, I'm fascinated by actual story progressed. Well within the entire explanation of it. You're like I'm still willing to go into it. I'm like, yeah. It's like you're looking at if you want to I'm there. That's all I'm saying. Yeah. During if you want to make a short film, like we're there the progression folk is like, okay, cool. I get to know these characters. Okay. There's this dangerous. Okay. Now, we have to go save this kid. It's like what else is going to happen. It's really not important to the story. But I would love to with. Yeah. That you're gonna watch it who gives a shit where this came from. It's like are they gonna survive? We'll find out. Yeah. Yeah. My my only other mom. Was how. And this doesn't take away from the film at all for me. But how easy it was to get to the underground? Escalator in a fun house. The funny thing I thought about the escalator only goes one way. And I was like it's not to me. It's not a plot hole. It's a logic gap. Yeah. But like how many times have you run up an escalator? Elilott? That's what I'm saying. I I wish it was one more thing. I in my mind. I was also thinking of it's like you've set up a haunted house for a church or a high school. Yeah. There's a bunch of fucking backdoors bunch of shit. Yeah. So I mean, I think if it stopping an entire community community from getting up I wish it was one. I only the only reason I haven't because no one has ever actually walked to that. Pardon? Right. And so that's why she kind of created that whole and also created a fucking anomaly of bringing the real one down, then that's a good point. Yeah. So yeah. But I don't know why that would have helped me just a little bit more with thinking about that. Yeah. Everyone has to do what everyone does up there. But thinking about it this. She's not the only person that's been fun house. Every single person has been fun house has had looked at their getting straight in the face. And then they turn around because he did not open that door. Right. That's creepiest. Yeah. And and the fact that that holy shit. I never thought of that. That's great fun. Remind changed my quantity. Anymore? That's great. That fun house was built as basically a, tether. Yeah. And you think it's a mirror, but really you're just looking at the game. And it turns away, and because her character lupita Lupis Adelaide who came up was the first one to ever take that because they were special says, you know, we were special. They've never had the drive to rebel that way. And then of course, read later on rebel because she's not from there and everyone looked to her as a leader Sheikh. And she could do all these things. So never mind. I take that one back. That's fucking great. I've just gave me chills. Yeah. No. No, you're right. You're totally right. You just mixed one of my mom's the one that. I wish I knew more. We always I don't think I have any more calms. One hundred sixty minutes long. I could go for one hundred forty six minute long film. Go for two and a half hour for sure. Yeah. I don't think I got anymore. I don't really don't think I have any. I think this is a really strong second film. I mean, there's no real like camera choices I wish were done better cameras. Beautiful colorings wonderful thing about the camera where it reminds me a lot of like resin evil the regional resonable where it's like they do fixed camera angles. So that you're always afraid of what you don't see. And like when back to get the Cadillac. It has fuck was going to happen. And we all know we're like oh God damn, and she knows the table. Yeah. Yeah. The MD table where the girl used to be. Yeah. Which they were all sitting around watching TV with her. They're like creepy shit. Oh what? When last shout out for a moment. It's the sequence with the brother and sister together to take out the twins in the mom, and they they look at each other the entire time with the fucking. Yeah. Moment specifically. So she kills the first sister, quote unquote kills the for sister comes to life, and she's so hyped. She starts shaking her arms out. And I was like, oh, oh, I know that feeling from playing baseball and stuff like that. You're like, okay. I missed that. I let me get this this second one here and just walking just drive grind Gosling. Somebody the one in the bathroom. I thought I thought that was that was a great scene. And it was the nice first time they got got along in the film because you're not like they didn't get along. But they brother insisted the whole thing. And they'd finally like teamed up to get their mom. So you think it's just going to be the daughter, and then the sun comes up, and you're like. All right rating. I have mine. I would say it's a. It's a four point nine. Oh shit for four point nine awhile five. No gramps does this week. Oh shit. Okay. So yeah. Everyone home since what you're you're rating is who you thought would have been the group out of us too. But I hope you guys like bonus episode if you want more of these let us know we'd love to do them. I d want to add a little a little some some. Who is the scariest of the untethered other? Who's the scariest tethered who are trying to another? Ooh, that's a good question for me, the one that creeped me out on looks alone is the daughter. The they because they took her eyebrows out. Yeah. And she's she was born laughing. Oh, yeah. And that freaked me out a little bit and how fast she could run. So one of the scariest points for me in the entire film is there's this scene with the daughter and her gang walking around a car because she caught up with her because she runs like a motherfucker because. She was like a motherfucker because. Above ground daughter is a is a track and field star Zora Zora in umbra umbra Embry she's track and field stars. There was a track and field star. So of course, that means the Dopplinger also runs, but probably had a freakishly strong rate. So there's a senior on the car where they're like following each other through the windows, and then Hombre or Umbro dips down and it scared the shit out of me. So I think I think her I think she's the scariest Pluto scared me the most Pluto because he's so the ravenous napping evil, son. Who's also burn victim? Yeah. Loves to play with fire runs on all fours. Yeah. He can crawl climate fucking. I didn't think about the tree, and like, even when they pull a fucking bookshelf to like, you know, distract him. He just hops over it and the entire time. He's. It's like, oh, he's like, he's the least human also Elizabeth months. She uses with Moscow the shit on me, just devilish leave cutting her own face, and like almost cutting the pita and the not quite doing it. And what do you think about why think that each one had to kill their own? But you think that was because it was a plan or is because you think that he would not be tethered. I don't know. Maybe maybe both. Maybe that was the plan because it wouldn't be until you you think that any of the other tethered people knew that Adelaide was actually tethered person 'cause you read told him. No. Because I think they might maybe turn on her. Then I don't know. That's a good question. I don't think so. But I do think that they have to kill their own because I chose would work because Tim kills Tim Elizabeth Moscow's Tim daughters. Yeah. So I think you have to kill your own. That's why all them went off. Yeah. Yeah. So I think that's why she didn't do it by thinks you wanna see right toe. Really wanted to 'cause crazy. But yeah, Jordan Peele fucking well done cannot wait for your third one. If you want to send it to us early. Let us know we'll give you are actually I'll tell everyone at home as well. If you're wanting something that's very casual don't watch this film. Yeah. You need to engage in multiple viewing film. I know I'll be going back for a second time. I'm sure you will you'll be going back for a second time. Phenomenally acted especially shut up to the pita and Winston Winston Duke killing it. But literally everyone in this cast was phenomenal Jordan has has gotten a great group of people together on this film to really pull something special. So that's my that's my two cents about the whole thing. Yeah. Thank you. Everyone for listening. Oh, okay. Last thing. I'm so sorry to interrupt. I just remember because we talked about this a little bit, Tim. Hi, Deckers character you and I had the same moment when he starts talking on the boat. And he's like, oh, yeah. Steve. Yeah. Dave is like yelling to someone across the lake and he's like, I'm not wearing hockey. But he is he's yelling across the lake. And we're like who I thought it was like the daughter. Yeah. But then it's the same sound Tim makes. And then you're like oh shit hole communicating. That's the moment you realize that they're all in this together. It was very like I am legend ver-, it was very creepy. I didn't want that to pass up 'cause we both looked at each other. Same. Oh, yeah. I did see the whole twist from the very beginning. Because I was just like what is the whole film because I like I want. I'm ready for the mind, FOX. I'm like I guarantee that she just which from the beginning. That's amazing. And I wanted to see like how it was going to happen so disappointed at all. No, okay. Ruined it all, but I really liked it. Yeah. Again, when she started talking. That's what gave it away to me that her vocal. I also trailers for you. I had no idea to happen. Yeah. Choke, and I didn't see that having all those like what the fuck make a sense get on not only beat. Anyway, thank you for joining us for this episode. Appreciate it. Yeah.
