Remembering Jamaican Producer Lee 'Scratch' Perry

"In a realm where eccentrics are taken for granted. Jamaican musician Lee Scratch Perry was singular. Perry was a hugely influential producer and not just in his home genre, Reggae but in dance, music, hip hop and beyond. Perry died in Jamaica on Sunday at age 85. NPR's Anastasia Sulcus has this appreciation. Lee Perry got his nickname from a song he recorded early in his career chicken Scratch. Good. Someone like chicken scratch. He also called himself the upsetter. It was an apt description on many levels. He had a habit of having acrimonious splits with former mentors and artists he previously championed. You'll never get away from me. I am upset at Perry's own studio Black, Ark. He worked with many of Jamaica's biggest talents. Including junior Mervin, the hep tones, the Congo's and Bob Marley's band. The Whalers. Mr. Brown is a clown rides through town, even thoughtful. Black Ark. Was like a chemistry lab for Perry's sonic experiments. He was a pioneer of dub, underlining the base and adding reverb to create lots of oral space. He also sampled before most people knew the term or the technique used found sounds and even buried microphones underground to get the effect he wanted. Perry's partnership with the Whalers ended badly he secretly sold tapes they'd made with him to another label and kept the money. Years after building his fame studio, Perry reportedly burned it down. He was an impish, erratic presence, often in his later years, sporting neon colored hair and beard and fantastical

Domestic Symphony - The Evolution of Digital Audio Technology

"For a new home appliance. Let's say a new washing machine or dryer or a dishwasher. We ask ourselves a lot of questions things. Like how much does it cost. Does it come in different colors. What features does it have. What did the review say. Does a refrigerator crisper actually do anything with so much to think about. It could be easy to overlook what the product sounds like For decades thoughtful sound design and music was limited to the world of entertainment specifically movies tv and gains over in the world of manufacturing. Sound design was almost nonexistent. As long as the product worked in looked okay. That was good enough. Sound was an afterthought if it was even considered at all recently though that's all started to change in the last twenty years as smartphones laptops and tablets became more common. Our home started chirping with carefully. Designed sounds but for the most part are home appliances. Still just made noise in decades past devices were limited a cacophony of noise. That's audrey are beanie. I'm the ceo founder and executive producer of audio brain. We are a sonic branding firm. When audrey i started working in sound design nobody was thinking much about the sounds of household products. Nobody really paid too much attention to those alarms. And those buzzers That's what that world was about. It was really not much intention to the sounds. Your heard within your home but these days appliance makers are paying a lot more attention to how their products sound and they're asking sound designers to help them make new sounds. We're looking for sounds that add value not sounds that ed noise but that enrich that experience and make people feel really good

No tomato or extra tomato. You know so it's not an impr- it's an imperfect type of a business but what we do. Is we do the best that we can to reconcile it and make better right you know. And if we do that not only have. We saved the customer but that customer now realizes just how important it is for us to do the right thing right so if i can tell the story so years ago gary nyerere on this trip that i alluded to earlier. the tv station that taken assan. And we're just talking about business. And gary said we'll tell me about sonic and you know i was like yeah. I mean we do all this and we do this. Different things for our employees. You know we give them the food price and We had i think at the time. If we got one hundred on mystery shop we would give the manager of big screen. Tv and what happened was we turned into a joke because the managers were winning so many big screen. Tv's they were just giving them the crew members. So i mean like everybody in the story got the big screen. Tv from us and What oh then. We talked about the sonic games which is like an olympics where we compete and there's Thirty six hundred sonics and we always have somebody in the top twelve. If not multiple stores adopt woah. So and that's all based on. How will your stores on. And then sonic takes oath people to wherever the convention. It's a national. This year peyser expanses. You know what i mean. Basically a really big deal. And i went through this whole really a litany of thirty minutes stuff. We do for the employees and he said really he said you know we do in nothing. Then come in. I got a reseed. They're good working. You know but we can do that. 'cause we're sonic and if you fry chicken you're limited as to which can do again. I'll love pop guys. I look at my wife used to work for also out you know. I'm only saying that tongue in cheek because we've have our own stories funny. It was one. Yeah yeah data order that they have you know like i said i was. You know i was tv than i was radio and then i was a marketing director. I ended up being in charge of the city club and then and then and then moved onto back to i. Guess maybe my roots with fast food and it's again it's been they've been very very blessed for for so many years i have a question for tad you know as we wind down. I want you to get a couple of personal thoughts but have you ever worked like To fry the fries or do they put you in charge. Tater tots league to go. Do some of these me lock the door man. He is going to so screw up the lunch or on. You know so i. I'm blessed that god has let me know what my limitations are on. But i gotta tell you we we just. We closed the jennings. Sonic about this time last year and completely remodeled it We opened we. Were just you know. It was crazy. And i made hot dogs for week. Yeah i mean it was just. That happened to be the place i walked into and we were so busy. I could move manage. Yeah i can do a hotdog friars. There's now man you got all kinds of buttons spill off as dangerous. Yeah i know my limitations. I know how to do everything. But there's through the kids that are that are working on the line in the kitchen over there so fast and they're so good you know you gotta get out of their way. Because they're they're gonna mess up the operations What i usually is. I just fill the ice been because they always need that. You know i'm not going to be in their way ryan so at least that helps them a little bit but that brings up another memory or y'all still selling that wonderful is to the public freeze. Were ties is yes. And it's a it's amazing. How many people come to buy a bag of ice. I can promise you buying any ice burger king. Now that's kind she and it's just cut so i do want to say one thing about hiring employees Think a lot of it is how you approach things. And how you and your your your mention of straws and turtles and you know that you do have innovate So once we about two weeks into this employee situation where we realized we we're we were up fifty percent over last year and just didn't have that many people is we went to the managers and said look you know it's it's you know. Here's what we're gonna do. You know. I need everybody's ideas so we want everybody to get creative. Get out there you know do your thing and send us what your ideas are and we're going to have a contest and so we put up five thousand dollars and so the manager that came up with the does come up with because still going on with the very best idea. This'll be voted on by all the other managing partners that we have Whoever as most creative and successful idea to bring people on will win the five thousand dollars so it goes back to yours. Your thoughts about innovation gets us what you gotta do. You gotta come up with and engine. Know at the end of the day in philosophically. This way we try to run our restaurants but we think that our poise will never treat our customers better than we treat our employees into big point. We think we look at the employees our employees or team members wherever you calm as our customers so our challenge every day is to find a way to treat them with love. you know. we're all children of god and deserve to be treated that way and we try to treat them with love and with respect and with appropriate boundaries of course And that's how we think we do well because then they mirror that whether they know they're doing it or.

"It's insure every every aspect thing to bring up and you know i think that's what drives progress and innovation is gary used the term bobbing and weaving. And you know we. We like that term. We use all the time in our business and gary alluded to a year ago. We couldn't get hamburger meat because cova da had shut down so many manufacturing plants And and on one case one of our competitors wendy's just completely ran out of me and put on their marquees they were out meet In our case we went to the farmers and started buying the buying cows on the buying the meat on the hoof yeah and praying paying them to process them and we got involved in a whole sonic they had on. Did that was having an individual franchisees because in louisiana. Were you able to do that. Gonna talk about this. We purchase we purchase. We had a big purchase of hamburger meat patties. And everything else we we actually ordered three hundred fifty thousand matt. Paddy's you know at one point. They didn't come in at the same time. There was some logistic issues to try to get them. You know distributed throughout all of our stores but again is kind of the bob and weave thing. We figured it out. You know ted found a source that we could get the meat then. We ended up distributing it just like you would from distribution center send. It was helped local farmers. Oh absolutely because they were struggling to with the hulk covid absolutely. Yeah it's saying this last fifteen to sixteen months has been of every day or every week. There is a challenge of some sort. You know and right now you know. Everybody is the challenge that we're dealing with is is our subject is is staffing at this point but but you know we you know like i said earlier that you know working at sonic is different. You know it's it's it's like. I said earlier. It's i don't want to say it's quirky but i mean it's it's one of those things that it's sort of a fun place to work and being in the stores just this week i go visit and talk to you know. Talk to all the kids all the time and ask them how they're doing and things like that and i'm telling you it was just yesterday. As a matter of fact i was visiting stores in the baton rouge market and i go in there and talking to them and i'm kind of the crazy old man i can have that i can play that role and you show well. They do a hands to gary and all that kind of thing but they're all smiling. Everybody's having fun it's work is a challenge of course but we do things a little bit different menu a little bit different from most of the people most of our competitors and we just go with the flow. And it's like we're not really looking in a situation of doom and gloom about staffing staffing. Is going to come back end in about three weeks. All of the kids are gonna be out of school looking for summer jobs. It won't be long. They're going to be looking for it so this is know we don't look at it from a from a negative. We look at it as an opportunity. Have you been able to maintain your prices since you had to alternative source things. I'm sure this is a lot more expensive than third nationally. That's a really interesting question because if you look at this. Globally what's happened is the supply chain of everything. Chicken much talked about chicken. Chicken prices are skyrocketing. Rabin is have gone up three dollars. A pound in that's from the processing plants Just because they don't have the help they can't produces much. So you've got a supply and demand that's driving the prices up with also happenings. Because of all the stimulus money people have the money to pay the higher prices. And and what. The economists say is going to happen quickly. And it's happening now in the grocery stores is you're gonna see those prices really go up and they're not gonna go back down because people have dollars to pay that kind of money In our case we don't we don't we. We redo our menus twice a year. And it's mostly because we add something we take some things off. We don't innovate with new products so we have twice a year where we look at our prices. So you know so. It's not like we change prices or we have a magic button where we can push the make them go higher or lower traditionally if you go to restaurants and then go to our competitors and this is strictly philosophy and nothing else we try to price our. Even though our foods higher quality which i could prove that we try to keep our pricing Very competitive to a little bit lower than our competitors just because we're trying to let our customers know that you know we're sensitive to the day can spend money anywhere and we try to make that make it easier for them to spend it. It's on it because in many cases were less expensive again at the same point we is a higher quality. Meat are hamburger patties are not quarter pound. They're larger than a quarter pound patty. Y'all things that we never talked about our our hotdogs or one hundred percent beef. We talk about those things But it's just what we do as a company. We don't cook before until you get to the store place your order you know. We don't have food under he lamp. So high quality is very much. Part of the dna of who we are in In pricing follows along that to we try to be really sensitive. So you've got flexibility in each market Seeming that prices might be kind of similar around the country but it sounds like each market has mortgage. We we try to keep Our in our four markets. You know that that we're working with we try to keep the the same pricing and things like that but you mentioned earlier about Charleen geez you know. Charlie jesus in the dollar business. We're in the nickel business. You know where it's the different scale of of of the of the of the purchases so we're We're very very concerned of going up a nickel if we wanted to raise a red. We wanna raise a hotdog a nickel you know. We we talk about it for weeks. You know before we make any decisions and we.

"Six figures guy so and and deserves it into all believe me. It's it's a. Yeah that's a yes. She deserves it very much. So as do all our folks. So what i what i was trying to get to was when we hire someone. We're we very much talk about that and talk about what you probably just came in. Because you know you're either your parents are on the to go to work or you need to buy a car or take your girlfriend or boyfriend out for dinner on friday night or go see a movie so he needs some change. We get that but we want you to look at what the big opportunities here so and and kind of falling back into a gary just said so what we do is when we bring somebody in. We are looking for a way to move them forward. So we're looking actively for ways to get them more money into give them raises and we have a program where every time you qualify for a different position you automatically get raised. You can come to work for us and start getting a raise. Virtually two weeks later as long as you're you know you're putting in the effort to do that. So so we want to train people to be winners and we want to train people to make more money and we want anybody on the lower end of the spectrum we want them at fifteen bucks an hour plus because that's how we develop folks And you know worked for us for forty two years and you know we. We think we're going to stick with us deal. It's a good model. Yeah works it works and it's fun because you know it's really fun to to work with folks that are doing better than they ever thought they could. In fact we had a crawfish boil. Nyayo house a couple of weeks ago. And i just moved into the house real fairly recently a year. It's not quite finished yet. But you know one of my longtime partners Stood up and said you know. I don't know anybody who deserves a house is nice more than you do. Well it was really touched me. Because she didn't have to say that. And i think we have that relationship with our folks So you know she could have just as easily said. Oh you bomb great place you live. If you paid me more money. Now i can have tape. I could have one or two. Which but you know. But she didn't and so that was but but kind of going back to the question and what we're talking about you know we really don't look for minimum wage people but again to answer your question. I think the market is going to drive minimum wage up faster than the politicians juice so i wish politicians would go focus on something else You know it's all about entrepreneurship. And i'd like to pause about another entrepreneur. One of our interviews. We did back in. Twenty seventeen was with charlie. Goodson who people know is the founder of charlie. Jeez restaurant and he's a principal with southern hospitality. Kitchens intend in particular. I thought about you when i was looking back. Who can we look at. Charlie is an entrepreneur and he started back in the seventies also. He was in college working for different people and he decided he wanted to open his own place and it was a different world back then. He partnered with earl gigiri as they developed judge. Roy bean's saloon. Who many of you may remember the locale that they chose back then was the building. Currently offered by cafe remained ville but back. In the day it had been known as the ritchie plantation. She can find. Charlie goodson interview along with two hundred others that we've done including one with chad at discover lafayette dot net loss. A lesson and so You were here in sixty seven. I know just five years later. You re partner with earl abeer understand and i knew him as an artist. The history of judge. Roy bean's how did that come out. i was working for preston goodrich at the time at peach. The original peach which was more of a college hangup. That wasn't on. Nothing was muto now and Or was a good friend of preston's they were high school buddies and url would come in after they would close the restaurant and and we got we became real good friends there and i went to work for him at the beef and ale restaurant as a waiter so I was waiting tables. Four at the beacon hill. And i told him i wanted to open my own place and so on our days off we would drive around looking at locations. Where you saving as you were working. Did you know. I wanna do this. I i wanted to do this in those days. it was a it. Wasn't a factor of money unbelievably. It did you did not have to have a lot of money to open a business whereas today. That's the first consideration. Where am i going to get the money to open judge. Roy bean's earl head two thousand dollars. Because he was in the business he had a little money coming in is borrowed. Two thousand dollars. My daddy cosign for guaranty bank and so for four thousand dollars. We opened a business. You know you know it takes hundreds of thousands to do it today To in most cases but in those days We did all the work ourselves. All the painting all the carpenter electrical. Welcome back to discover fiat. So i want to get back to the current topic which is the strains that the service industry is under. You know high in restaurants casual. Sit down places like sonic and others. What in the industry like what. How are people managing. I mean you know. Maybe we shouldn't be using straws. Ted maybe don't they cause trouble or something. I don't suppose supposedly they kill the turtles and you know in our straws into a trash. Can that goes into a Gets wrapped up in plastic trash bag that goes to landfill. I don't know how the hell those turtles get landfill so anyway. That's just my two cents on it. But this is the time to reassess what the industry offers. And i don't even know if you probably thought about it and don't want to because you can't get certain things but maybe is it a time to pivot and look at. Maybe people don't need straws. Maybe i don't know there's up. I'm sure there are other things along with this catch up. And all these different condiments were people couldn't get him either right..

"The fast food industry and really the service industry. Is it really hard right now to to get people to work. Well it i would say the. It's it's a perfect storm so careful how i answer that. Cause your question was hard to get people to come to work It's hard to find people whose financial interests are best served by going to work and so two to give you a little background on and of course we're all aware of what's going on but basically what happened is after the first of the year You know normally people get their income tax check so that usually has little effect on our business in particular because people get You know get their tax returns so they have some you know. Free crazy money That they can use for whatever and then in this case. Of course the government Released the stimulus checks which a as everyone knows turned out to be. I think the number was fourteen hundred dollars In that was not per household per person in the household And i know the guy that runs our in house. Construction company takes care of some of his family members and he came in and he said he got ten thousand dollars. You know in the in the bank just showed up at the so so then the other thing that happened is once people or it seems so what happens. Once people got that big amount of money that they they didn't want to go to work be now they have this money that they want to go and spend and i say that. Because that's if you look at the economics of what's happened that's exactly what's happened and it's not just our business that's been impacted by the tight labor market. It's pretty much every single business We have a situation right now. It's affected the supply chain and we might talk about this later too but Just one example is we've had a heck of a problem finding straws and very specifically are straws are in a container that come from china and they're in a container ship in the port of long beach and we literally connected our straws out of the container ship because in long beach. Every longshoremen that Soon as they released the stimulus checks every one of them. And i mean everyone of them went on vacation and it completely shut the port down so not only are straws but everything that's on any containership and it's a huge more. They can't get any of those things released so even sonics in long beach cannot just go tap on the senior and i just of go in and get my if they try. They've tried and so it really has been a problem in you. Know one of the things that really exacerbated it was when the money hit everybody ran out or most folks ran out and started to spend it so no matter what business. You're in whether it's you know. Quick service restaurants like we are And we love it by the way so we're not complaining. We love the fact that people got out There was pent up demand because everyone's been stuck in their home free year. So and i know. I'm one of those people that got out and you know really enjoyed kind of life going somewhat back to normal. But what's what happened is when all of that happened. All these people were out spending money and everyone sales just went through the roof. And i'm saying that because the perspective a give that in reality we do have the same number of employees. We had this time last year. So it's not just that it's new people aren't looking for a job but business exploded so quickly in every segment that included us really needed more poised to handle the business that we got. And that's another so there's two problems people got money. They really didn't need to work so they took off in that. Everyone you know. But but generally that's an accurate statement and we increased our business so we needed additional people on top of the normal number and those are the people that we are really We're we're struggling to find finance additional and carry wilkerson now. Your background is really heavily. You've been in the service industry for quite a while. And when i googled this topic. I was shocked at what came up as as ted was saying. It's not just the employees. It's the supply chain but the the fast food industry has been impacted just as much as the sit down. Restaurants are is a pen up demand. You know in your experience. Have you ever gone through anything like this in all your years. Oh and of course tits done a lot longer than i have but you know this really started of right. Now we're having some challenges with supply lines and And with a employees as well but this is nothing new. We had this exact same thing a year ago in a last year. We were trying to find hamburger meat. You know we're trying to find straws you know and then last year of course there was a it was an awful lot of money that was coming out from the unemployment. You could get six hundred dollars plus the state money and you know if you run that out to a year a year long you could be sitting at your house for and gets forty thousand dollars to not to not go to work right. You don't so that's that's where it really has. It has snowballed at this point. And unfortunately it seems like it's it's rolling enrolling enrolling. It's like everybody's having the same problems and but there are no answers at this point but there are definitely ways that we can continue to work with people and one of the things that we do here with sonic is that sonic is a little bit different from some of our other competitors. It's a it's a. It's kind of a fun place to work. I mean now is not i mean. Work is a four letter work. Okay but everybody has that but you have to go to work but sonic is a good place to work. In fact i've been in the market this week and visiting stores and we're getting people coming in and i think it's because sonic is a little bit different. We might be a little quirky compared to other people. You know to the big boxes and you know the the big numbers you know with the competitors and things like that. And i don't think they see us coming you but we seem to be doing okay. Now that being said we have active two thousand two thousand employees every single day. There's two thousand people that are working for us. It's not the same people the next day. Because you've got different shifts and things like that so but but when you look at active employees we probably have upwards of about three thousand employs. All of them are not working at the same time right right so when we interviewed before tad our first interview with you was gosh. It's been over a year. I remember we had the interview. We talked about how much fun three says. And i remember you talking about how some of the locations people will gate. And i know you're talking about it's just a fun company as we emerge from this covid shutdown which i hope we do. It's still if he to me how we're gonna come out of this with all the people on the stimulus checks and some people not getting their shots but.

"The Maison with Kevin Nation. I don't know if you've seen these commercials for Sonic recently, with the, I think it's called their bacon Jam cheeseburger. And it wasn't something that appealed to me, I'll be the first to admit. I'm one of those people who doesn't care one way or the other about bacon, I like bacon. But I don't love it. Don't hate me for that. But this bacon Jam, I thought was kind of made up. I looked at it and it's like, well, I don't know if that looks good. It can't be a real thing. Maybe it's up there. Making up. Of course, I did the research and found out. No bacon. Jam is a real thing. And it's kind of like a jam, but yet it's more Savory than it is sweet. The Australians have a nice version, which is totally Savory. There's no sweetness to it, but in our American version, maybe some maple syrup, maybe some brown sugar. A lot of companies make bacon Jam, although I guess it's not really a big thing up until the Sonic commercials. I've never heard of it and there isn't much. That hasn't passed through my belly, at least, one time in my life. So I was kind of shocked to find something new. A condiment of some sort. If you will that I hadn't heard of, I thought it was made up only to find out. It's real dead.

He said i've rocked. My role is born dead end. There will be no more rock and roll records from me the last thing. I want to be some useless effing rock singer today. Sonic x comes on board. Sauna geck's is a hard rock band. From toronto. Canada man members joey greco and joseph's combo join us. So today we have sonnet exa rock and roll gritty rock and roll from the heart of toronto and today we have Joe greco drums vocal and joseph combo. Who is does the base and management of ban. Welcome guys thank you. Thank you thank feminist on chain great time. So i've been listening to the sec and As back as two thousand and four your saif self titled debut ep. You're still getting radio. Play for news for you. Yeah actually it's really funny because it's one of our. It's their first album. That was on our first album on a label z records which is a uk label popular songs. Even even to this day it's You know we check our stats on spotify. I tunes and all that. It's one of our most popular songs. Sure yeah exxon and then you follow up with an ep in two thousand seven doesn't know we follow that up with another album called thirteen and two thousand sat thousand seven. It wasn't it wasn't an ep full full album. It was a full of even actually had some bonus tracks that were in. The first record is the first record was released in the uk. It was like a european label and didn't get a lot at that time. You're out cds. And all that it wasn't released fallout here in north america. So on the second record when we we moved label called chavez records which is a us based label and chavis bill chavez who owns the label. He really loved that. I record and wanted to you. Want to release. it already. Went down that road let. Let's just focus on new stuff but we kind of met in the middle and decided to include. I was four or five times. I can't remember now from the first record and release him as bonus tracks on on the record. Call thirteen so that's a full album. Plus bonus tracks actually. I'm sorry but what caused the decision to release the debut album only in the uk. It was really just the circumstances we were. We had taken a long break. We were called something else before we were called. La the man was called la and we toured extensively airing candidate at the time we were forced peace and we took a long break and when we came back we at changed the name to sonic x and a friend of ours. Who is in a band He he was signed the z. Records and said hey. Why don't you guys send your your stuff over to z records and see if they'll sign you so we did and You know it just kind of evolved that way and it was a us uk but we're really looking for it the just kind of evolved that they wanted to sign us and we said show. Let's do this and it was a good move because she kick started the band again and we all got back together. Yeah so that's why we went with that road. And what did you different route. Two thousand fifty fall from grace. Yes so fall from grace is an ep. That's that's that's a four song. Five four song you five song. I can't remember four or five song. Ep gets four and so with that of that was kind of a point where we introduce Joy into the ban and at the time when we were we put the record together. We're kinda doing electronic drums at the time you know. Technology now is really great. So the tonic. Sounded pretty good but We got joy involved. He helped us produce some stuff in the past like you helped us on the thirteen record as a producer engineer and he was doing the same on on the fall from grace record but he decided he did some re recording of the tunes with with real drums and we really like the sound and it really took the song different level so we decided task joy to join the band and that was a big change for us in two thousand fifteen and also at that point we decided to go independent and and lose the labels as well enjoy started with jazz drummer and backup vocals. Join on yeah. We'll just drums and just mixing the music that that was basically what i was doing for the band at the time. Okay and you have another bad number lawrence. Falkiner i actually. I saw his Instrumental which i love rentals mine sunshine. It's pretty good. Yeah he's a phenomenal player. Lawrence and lawrence and i go back a long way. We been in bands together for for really really long time even before sonics and all that. But he's just a phenomenal player in a great writer and i may contribute to the band. So he's he's one of the co founders. I was impressed so tell us a bit. About how both you came into the music space tells us a bit about your backgrounds. joy Who will with me is basically back back in the eighties a playing drums in different bands at the time and then I got out of the music business and then Say about fifteen years ago. I just i just decided to get back into it and started writing some songs and fred kurci from alias and sheriff heard the songs and rami towle and a few a few labels or interested in me at the time from what i what i was doing and i just i the time. I didn't think. I just didn't want to really be a solo artist. I didn't want to do that. I was more just more of a studio junkie. I just wanted to just basically play with my my toys in my studio and just just basically basically engineer and write music. i didn't necessarily wanna perform it. So that's basically my story. I've been mostly a studio guy all my life for most for most of my musical anyway. So i never really got into a band situation as until like Like i mean on an intimate ban situation until they hooked up with these guys. So that's basically in a nutshell. What what my. My musical.

Its I brace. I'm not very good. Bracing change that's all right you don't have to be embracing change. Just change needs to happen. Just naturally happen so we have been on and off for a couple of months and a half where here. We're not here. We actually officially have lost episode. Now I don't know where that when we were talking about was the best episode of her new lot. Oh Yeah it was phenomenal. There was angels and demons and good versus evil. So amazing that you wake up the next day. It's like minded mazing not apple. You just can't remember but you know it was amazing. That's exactly what the situation we're in. We haven't done this in so long. With so rusty my pains go to stretch hemmings and are vocal causing again but yet. So we're back season two episode to Wigan get really hot into it because one of US Know Me Sore Burn. Take it away Yes me and Kaban. Water went to see the sonic movie. And I give it a thumbs up I I was actually expecting a correct and I was actually getting more excited that it was going to be correct from the very first trailer with that amazing looking. Sonic that they had. But yes I would actually recommend this. If there's some way it makes it out because you know you say something happens in the universe and everything. I really hope if they do have a BLU ray or DVD xtra lease is to have the remaining footage with that sonic in the scenes. Put it in everything. You're like the urgency. Sonic Oh yeah the something called away because they said they had to change the animate over again. So yes they it would be. It exists those files and everything of the actual even roth or it's not even fully rented it would still be there. The Sonics snotty cut. Yes but yeah just to talk about the film. Generally it's pretty good It's more of a family film you can tell it's PG which was surprise when they came in and they actually you know actually bring in some a bit of adult humor here in that. I was actually surprised. I'll very upfront about Just to start off in the movie starts with the Sega Logo. They have one of those montage. We like many games on screen and everything and I see the Yakuza series in that very prominent. I'm just like Oh boy. My favorite already crime simulated Japan. I love it. Yeah and Some of the but yeah but it's the came down to as when I think about it. It's just very straightforward song movie. Sonic is meant to be from another dimension That goes really fast Susan baby so there's the first marketing parts of Sonic. He's taught by a new character. That appears and the character disappears for the rest of the film after that and then we basically started up that sonic his traveling from worldwide. Using rings he uses rings like the giant rings to Teleport to in the video games to the special signs to teleport other worlds so slightest. Yeah so basically. He's got a little map which he unveils. And there's the first little Easter egg for fans there's a cu satin world and has crossed at. Because there's no sonic the game on the secrets an infamous one candidate law second. Yeah I just talk about the whole thing but I'll just get down straight to the point. It's bad that's basically the main plot and Jim Carey comes as doctor. Botany because again son it goes too fast that he actually causes a sonic boom in the area which knocks out electrics in the area. So it's naturally people come into that caused US everything And they find Sonics and that's where it all goes from there of Jim Carey playing as the asshole Dr Robotic. That's he's not Yucky. Route is absolute jerk to everyone. Let's write your Latte. Yeah some Nice touches here. I was expecting probably more. They're going to do renditions of the video game soundtrack. But they did because of this area cold in the movie Greenhill. So they had a piano. Rendition of greenhills earned from dishonor. Game articles a nice touch most of the Huber and everything else. It's very straightforward. It's not being anything too risque or anything like that. Like oh sonic ate too much and stuff like that does all. The shucks you little rascal. Dogs Chili Dogs Redford. They'll say things that I put in my mind. This is what I expect to be in a movie. And it's just like what he's break-dancing check that off as I said then he's he's Outta the places I oh they had a new thing. They will co Chili Dogs. Ooh That is well. Chili dogs ribs and But I will say not to spoil anything else. They were thinking about just generally good. Just the general enjoyable film icon. Really pick it apart. Because I know it's understand it's made for a younger audience in kids and when I break it down by story why structure and everything. It's a pretty much fits the mold of when it comes down to it. Of course. I have my imagination's live with the freakish. Sonic in a completely different plot of. You can't run away from your problems all the time. You just can't keep running all the time every classic children's movie of the past that we grew up with you can't just run away from everything expected to be all right but that's how everything worked out in my childhood. Yeah always yeah all the time. Nothing bad habit you July. So in the end any cows emeralds anything like that no realty reference accounts were already hanging none of the other wacky friends. And it's very sonic centered. Focus Film and everything it does set up for a sequel or not GonNa Spoil anything but of course avoid youtube or the in sonic fan base in general because they love spoiling everything which will do but as I said as a film itself. I enjoyed it. My worry guy went in expecting like the absolute worst and actually walked out enjoying it. So that's nothing can really actually say that's the price I can give a film. Yeah that's good positive. That's what I'd like to hear so when it comes to other parts of the movie Jim Carey talking about how high art was. Did it deliver on? The high art always emerged. Oh No you know you can understand. Why Dr Abundance is gut is attitude. The techie show is like the new bad knicks that he shows this is top of the line. Impressive look and stuff like technology wise. It's multi transforming vehicles everything from the Games and stuff so you can understand why he's looks down on everyone else unease because he's just that intelligent of what he's already accomplished and everything. Yeah so without agreeing or disagreeing. I'm guessing in the end. Robotic finds a way to go to sonic's dimension it's more of he understands sonic's speed and how jumps inventions and everything? Yeah and that's where the film ends on that pot as well too. So that's good. Yeah you get that. Does he get fat at the end only starts to change the pairs of lower body? Because he's gone through and he shaved his head. He's got the giant mustache a little bit more. Chunkier these coming egg man. Yeah so they could set it up. That he's way he's locations on sport he could be because of where he is. It'd be living on. He'll get probably many very bee's and everything he said. I'll add to it and everything as well awesome so at a ten. Well I don't like doing at ten I just give it a thumbs up thumbs. It's always hot. He's always to self interpreted. It might give it a thumbs up as like something to rush out to sea but like I said if if your family if you have a family people and you want to take your kids out. It's a good film takeout. They'll they'll enjoy the visuals and everything else like that. And they'll join sonic flopping so that a little beam dances. It's it's doing pretty well box. It's often re million and In domestic and then international is one hundred one million. Yeah that's the big numbers. It's the highest grossing video movie at launch. Yeah Yeah So. That's pretty also take that. Take that Double Dragon. Take that Solid Hill. Actually Pretty Good Hill. You get to be good lists today. The first solid Super Mario Brothers movie. That was pretty good too but it doesn't deserve to be that list because it was terrible. Yes Wonderful Madison. God here of combat is the gold standard. I say when it comes to making it. It's still taking the premise that it's still running with it. Even though they had that black character turned out who wasn't in the game with the staff and then the Qatada and lucane fight. Where that's it. It's over walks off his way into the damaged cells. Who fought with you? What what gives you killed? Everyone fights end the fighting. And that's it and you walk off your family. It's like cool. That's how mortal combat way Johnny Cage moment where he's walking through the Web's the website said Caetano went this way because a few nights she would have went through the wall of Whitlam. A you do this to me. See Rundown of that sane. You know he just has to actually move the cobwebs of these hands in Wrexham apart to get them free people free. She obviously didn't come through the awesome. So yes sonic did really well. I'm glad Because it did cost a lot more to make so yeah at least made some of that money back well. That's the lesson is that they actually took to criticism and then changed the film criticism and they were very successful because of that but unfortunately for the studio that did it. They got closed down because Canada. If you look up the film a movie it's called off the Pi. It's the studio that talks about who worked on the life of Pi and basically candidate just allows you to just fuck animators it you just get to just abuse all their right. Who CARES That's basically what it is by Canadian. And everything and it's very it's very distressing and stuff to see about that because you understand people have done. I've worked on free databases and everything else. It's a very animation is a very very. We'll have more testify if it's a very enduring tedious task tedious task to do and for people that these people actually really put in the effort. I will say that full Masonic village. They really put in the effort and to the fact that they don't have a job anymore. It's very distressing to hear about. We'll hopefully they can get jobs elsewhere. So good job guys. Much love future easily. Yeah go work for Disney. They need animators. Yeah Disney Warner Brothers. Actually these need riders animated. Yeah cool so we'll stick with the motive video games. There's been a bit of late information about the resident evil. Netflix Davies. Yes it's under the umbrella umbrella it's under the under the guise of clay. Yes per project Cleo Klay so basically the outlay man's imagine was yes game so this is all I was late The TANNA clearfield. Md has long stood in the shadow of three seen seemingly unrelated behemoths. The umbrella corporation. The decommissioned Greenwood asylum and Washington Day. Say Okay first of all. Why isn't asylum help against like a multibillion dollar corporation and Washington? Don't know what's going on here today. Twenty six years after the discovery of the TAE bars secrets held by the three. We'll start to be revealed at the first signs of APP break. Saw this is probably GONNA be pre zero. It's going to be prey mentioned incident so well. That's the logic from from the game. They could just come up with they want. That's usually the next problem. That's the other problem is they? Have all the source material. It's tough to go off on. They probably just be like no. I'm GonNa make something new and edgy. It's like yeah what I've thought about because I'm Constantin films. Are German company that both did resonate. Who writes for TV and film in Nineteen ninety-seven okay? That's why they keep on pumping out the movies because I just want to retain the rights because director also wants to put movies with his wife and he just kept doing it for that reason. My wife She's gorgeous. She kicked a glass and it cut the dog in half so basically day at the rebooting film series are on but then they doing TV series from Netflix which is going to be complete separate entity. Yes I hope. They don't merge the two. Yeah because one thing. I really want to get from the Netflix TV series. He's I want them to cut back on the action and give us the horror. Yes because that's what the first resident evil and I two zero three. We're all about horror before four turned four into a TV series. WanNa stay at all just a bunch of natives chasing well. That's what I give credit to the resident evil films. At least they gave us the cool laser room concept. Yeah pretty much. Yeah that's basically it and a slipknot soundtrack. So it's like heartfully delivers because based on the law you know the umbrella scientists working out of the mansion in the mountains so the Greenwood asylums probably some people who were test subjects. Maybe maybe they will give funding. Because there's an environmental reason. That's why they were out in the middle of the woods and land to be there. That's right the umbrella corporation..

And did absolutely has lower. Reference the lower. But what I wanted to say is I really enjoyed that story through and through from start to end without like, holy shit and all age or passionate about these care. As like, stand alone thing. It's a great story. It's creative. It's like dramatically. Well, put together it's just like all I also played there. Most of X right before I literally hours before vac game. Even better than I expected. Those games are written way better totally than the mortal. Comments. Should it's easy to sit there and go like, oh, this is the best story that's ever been fighting game. It's actually a really just good at video games story. One of the best video game stories of recent memory a couple of really poignant moments. There's some just draw jobbing. Holy shit moment. There's some parts where it becomes doom. There's like thousands of yet getting shot, which is really cool. Yeah. There. There's some uncomfortable stuff in there. Like, it's and it's something there's some really love. There's also a lot of stuff. Going on in the background, which you can miss like we had to replace certain portions one of my favorite little touches. And this might be will sabotage thing.

There's a lot of really good stuff with the past and present characters like we don't I don't get too far into specifics. But like seeing you know characters like talk to themselves, and how each of these different characters would handle it is really entertaining. I think that stuff is like, really smart fun.
