I pedal bicycle many people like to think of themselves as green I bar new house, and it had a concrete backyard, and I had the concrete torn out or pretty green. I do recyclable bags. However, we end up throwing them away a little green. I would say that. I definitely try to do my best. But how much are we really willing to give up for the environment? I wouldn't give up flying. I still wanna go. Visit my grandma I'm Mike and Scott, and this is shades of green and earth. Stay special from the pulse at WHYY. Every day each one of us makes hundreds of choices big and small that impact the environment. The size of our homes would food. We eat how we travel during this hour, we'll explore who chooses what? And why they're sort of an image out. There of you know, you're lefty tree hugging liberal, and then the greedy person on the right ready to to bulldoze the forest in order to put up a parking lot or something. But the reality is that those two extremes are actually fairly rare being green is more of a spectrum says political scientist, Jennifer Benz, she does public affairs research at the Associated Press. She found that people are motivated by different things we talked to just over fifteen hundred Americans and nationally Representative sample, and we asked them a whole series of questions. So, you know, everything from how? How connected they feel to nature. How often they engage in outdoor activities to understanding how they deal with issues when they're, you know, religious views might conflict with what the science and the data are saying, Jennifer and her team, analyzed all of this information, and they came up with nine different categories that reflect people's attitudes like religious greens middle of the roaders disengaged, outdoor non greens. Let's talk about some of the types that you found out there, and one of the groups you found were the so called liberal greens. So are those kind of like the tree huggers sort of? So the the liberal greens is a category of people it makes up a little bit less than ten percent of the population overall, and these are people who really identify with environmental issues there. You know? Highly likely to consider themselves and self identify as an environmentalist, but they're not necessarily people who directly engage with the environment. All that often more than any other group, we found they tend to live in cities, they aren't particularly likely to engage in outdoor activities. So they might buy shade grown coffee from whatever and organic grocery store, but they don't go out hiking. Right. Exactly. Yeah. They they are also the ones who are more likely to buy energy efficient light bulbs and use reusable shopping bags keep their thermostat adjusted in a way. That's that's the most energy efficient. Jennifer says generally speaking, they found a lot of nuance in people's believes, and the different types might have a lot more in common than you might think. Take for example, Matt Vincent in Montana. He loves being out. Doors, but he doesn't identify with the label environmentalist. He somebody Jennifer might put into the outdoor non green category. We went fishing with him. Going through on the north Bank of black tail creek above its confluence with silver bow creek, which is the headwaters of the Clark's fork of the Columbia. We've had a little bit of the spring fever with with the long winter almost behind us and decided to come down and try and catch a few fish. I met Vincent from beauty merica Butte being a a mining city and a lot of that mining having taken place before such things as environmental regulation. There's a lot of impacts on this stream a lot of them have been cleaned up. A lot of them still have to be addressed that pose additional impact heavy metals ph acid mine runoff issues, he cut out all the political BS. I I think deeply about the environment and wanna preserve it to be. Able to do the things I enjoy doing when I'm outside. And I want my kid and his kids and their kids to be able to do the same to. But in this world of media, manipulation and politics environmental list, and environmentalism has become a a dirty word so to speak in some ways, I think people in Butin places like Butte, even though the first thing you see when you when you come over that continental divide heading west is this unbelievably scarred landscape is we might have a better understanding and interaction with the environment than than most places. Then I think just be an out and interacting at all is more important than than anything else. That's mad Vincent from Montana. I'm Mike in Scott. This is shades of green and Earth Day special from the pulse. Think about all of the decisions you make every day. Grab a to go Cup of coffee on the way to work use public transportation or drive to the office by organic apples or not some people think about environmental impact in their decision making and their carbon footprint. They want to do something about climate change. But really how can one person stop it from happening or reduce it when there are seven billion other people also contributing to it pulse. Environmental reporter Irena jour of is in the studio now with some options. Hey irena. Hi, Mike Allen, I Renault you think about your own carbon footprint and use struggle with what to do about this. Right. I do. And because we love things to be easy. I've been looking into a relatively cheap way to temper carbon emissions that doesn't require me. Actually, you know, changing my lifestyle too much. So I step I made a call to Marissa's dibella. Check check one two three. Okay. I am recording. I had to confess something to her. So I made a list of all MyTravel for twenty seventeen. I had a flight Philly toss Vegas LA back to Philly. I flew roundtrip to Vancouver falling all Iraq up about fifteen thousand miles of air travel, plus about sixty five hundred miles by car and most of that travel was related to your reporting on the environment. Yes. And it all adds up to about ten tons of carbon dioxide. So that's one of the greenhouse gases produced by burning jet fuel or your car's exhaust it traps. Even that miss fear and drives climate change the average American emits seventeen tonnes of carbon pollution into that misfire every year. Okay. So you were actually lower than the average. Yeah. But my ten tonnes were just for major travel. So that didn't include my housing my food my day to day transportation stuff. I buy which comes from, you know, energy, hungry factories. So I asked Marissa about her out, but I traveled quite a bit. So twenty for the year. I recycle I try to bike as often as fossil rather than the car. But I'm still going to fly to here in California. So going fly to New Jersey to see my mother for Christmas. You know? You know? Not willing to give that up, but Marissa's there is a way to make up for some of these carbon sessions, you know, at least for people who are already sort of carbon conscious. She's the CEO of cool effect. It's a company that invests in projects that reduce the amount of carbon that ends up an atmosphere. It's a way to sort of counter or neutralize what carbon. You couldn't avoid putting out there. All right. So if I if I give them my money where will it go? So your money goes towards developing projects that reduce greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. It's called a carbon offset. I talked to Kelly Hamrick about this. She analyzes carbon offset markets. She says since climate change is a global problem. It doesn't really matter where reductions of carbon dioxide happen. You've got places in the world. Usually, you know, more developing countries where they might use just like indoor fires to cook. Their food has a lot of really terrible effects on the family breathing in all that smoke on the environment. Also like the type of fuel that's. Hughes sometimes that causes deforestation nearby. So for example, one company I spoke with they've invested donors money in developing a clean, cook stove building it and distributing it to women in Honduras, but there's lots of different projects. So carbon-offset money helped expand the wind turbine project in Oklahoma in New York. There's a landfill that. Now has a quick moment to catch. It's methane guests in Peru. There's a project to protect the forest Kelly estimates that in two thousand sixteen these kinds of projects helped reduce carbon dioxide by about sixty million tonnes. Okay. But that same year globally. We omitted more than thirty billion. That's with the be tons of carbon. It's a drop in the bucket. So these kinds of voluntary offsets take care of less than one percent of what we met globally, what motivates people to do this? Well, let's talk about companies. I the ones that choose to do it. You know, maybe they believe in being responsible or maybe it's. Marketing for them. They get to say, we're clean. We care about the planet, for example, Ben and Jerry's ice cream. They buy offsets. Their whole image is one of a company that cares about the planet. Just listen to this video they put out in support of a UN climate summit, featuring gooky melting ice cream. This is what happens when ice cream is just two degrees warmer than it should be. For Ben and Jerry's. It's a mess for the planet. It's a metaphor. And then for individuals, I talked to a guy named Walter Monckton. He lives in New York and has been buying carbon offsets for the past six or seven years, and I talked to him from home. We are both snowed in in. He said that he buys offsets because he sees it as his personal responsibility. Been corporations are meeting cardiac or power plants or meeting. Happen. It's because of the way we live and the way we live a comfortable as not lasted me that we're talking during a big storm in warm houses, meet at least on a fancy, computer. So. Was there like a sense of guilt associated with your lifestyle in our? What can we as individual do? He drives a Prius recycles keeps us. House insulated doesn't overheat. But no matter what he's still putting out carbon buying. Point buying indulgences back in the medieval era, the difference being buying indulgences didn't work. I don't think he's got you into heaven, but buying carbon credits does work as long as using reputable empty, so I mean, if I'm buying one of these carbon offsets, how do I know it's going to a good project. How do I know? It's really making a difference. Yeah. I mean, you kind of have to do your homework you're looking for something called additionality. And what that means is a given project would not have happened without the money people are paying to reverse their carbon emissions and this gets tricky because like any development project often they'll have lots of sources of funding. And you're like is this actually additional, you know, sometimes it gets harder to make that case having looked into this does this seem like a very effective way of reducing your carbon footprint. I mean it works. It's a small scale. And I'm kind of left wondering how much more effective actual comprehensive? Government policy would be at reducing how much carbon ends up an atmosphere. But you know, we don't have that yet. All right. So are you going to buy some of these carbon indulgences? Yeah. I settled on a clean cook stove project in Uganda. It costs six dollars four cents a ton. And I'm going to buy ten tons ten tons, all you travel, all my pulse reporting. I feel like the pulse should be paying for this. Thank you. Thanks, mike. People make choices green or not for different reasons. Face can be a motivation. The researchers who came up with the nine categories of environmental attitudes. They call this group religious greens Taiwo so can is one of them. She's a twenty three year old actress in Philadelphia, she's a Christian a big part of my faith is that I believe that as Christians we should fight for those who are not necessarily able to fight for themselves that we need to to be a voice and speak up for the things that we believe are wrong. And I think that that doesn't just apply to people that applies to the earth can't speak for herself the earth is what we have. And if we aren't fighting to keep the earth healthy to do our best and make the best of what what we have. Then we'll lose it. This is what we have. This is all that. We have my Christianity is all about. Social justice. My Christianity is about environmental Justice fighting for what I believe is. Right. And what Christ would want for all of us, including his earth. Taiwo? Does her part by recycling reusing things whenever possible she likes to use old class bottles to make Khumbu. Sometimes I feel like my way isn't enough. But I am doing what I can. Every day each one of us makes hundreds of choices big and small that impact the environment. But what do people really willing to give up? You know, if they recycled that waste, and they buy something that says green, they feel that they've done their share. That's environmental scientists Halina Brown, but it's just all these gestures. They they have no meaning in terms of environmental impacts. She's professor America at Clark university. In Massachusetts Halina says if you want to really have an impact it's going to mean owning less stuff and buying less consumption is the biggest drivers of environmental impact and of emissions of greenhouse gases that threatened climate about seventy percent of all our economy. Depends on household consumption. So essentially, our lifestyles and consumption both the driver of the economy and the cause of the emissions of greenhouse gases. It's it's enormous. So changing anything about our consumption. I guess on many levels is tricky because it does have a big impact on on our economy. That's right. That's what makes it so difficult. Our economy will construct it that way that's one of the big problem since in the last several decades since the end of the world tour to the essentially decision on how to move the country forward was made to have private consumption as the main generator of jobs, creating wealth and wellbeing now. I have children, and I often tell them that I had much much much less than they do as a kid. And I firmly believe that is true. But is it true? I mean, I remember things being much more expensive. When I was a kid and us just having less stuff, less clothes, less toys. Oh, absolutely. Absolutely. Look at the houses houses are extremely good indicate or of consumption because the size of the house determines how much energy the house itself. Consumes, but it also reflects of how much stuff we have. So in the nineteen fifties every house in the US will somewhat around between nine hundred thousand square feet, and he'd been going up literally every single year. That the new house that's being constructed is bigger. So right now, the average new house that's built in the US is about two and a half thousand square feet. So there is no doubt that there is much more of everything and these goods that are houses are filled with also have become cheaper in recent decades. Right. They've become cheaper. And they don't last very long so people can acquire them, and they have no value to people furniture cheaply made close, you know, we can afford to purchase these items and we can afford to throw them out and replace them with new ones a lot of people want to be environmentally conscious. They want to be green. But then at the same time. They also want to live in a really big house, and they want to have a nice car, and they want to have a new couch every two years. So this concept of reducing that being truly green means you have to give something up is that sort of dawning on people, you think well, we have to frame it not as a sacrifice and laws. It would have to be framed differently framing like freedom. I mean think about I live in a pretty wealthy community. And I see this houses beautiful Victorian house is huge. And when I look at them, and I said, oh my gosh. If I had to furnish that place and then maintain it that would be a lifetime project. I am free of that is being a little bit counter cultural, and maybe a little subversive, but that has an edge of something. Interesting Noval to it. Halina Brown is an environmental scientist and professor America at Clark university in Massachusetts. This is shades of green an Earth Day special from the pulse. For Canadian writer Madeleine Somerville. Having less stuff came sort of accidentally at first she had moved to a really small town in British Columbia with nowhere to shop. She was a social worker on a limited income, you know, in the beginning, it was just necessity and it was frustrating, and I would write emails home about how annoying. It was that. I couldn't find a store that sold white tank tops in my down. It was like so frustrating, but over time she started enjoying having less stuff. She moved into smaller and smaller places, she got rid of things she bought her clothes second hand, it became a way of life. My sister, and my mom are currently in a fight with me right now because I don't have a cattle like stove top kettle. And they think that's ridiculous, but I have a sauce pad. And so I'm like, why do I need a cattle of it just sits has one purpose when I can just boil water in a saucepan they Heim like completely insane for. This. So every time they go anywhere. They're extending me pictures of kettles. We found this really cute candle. I don't need a co Madeline told me this is not like some kind of diet. You know, she's not depriving herself of things all the time. She just really enjoys this lifestyle. She's written a book about it. It's called all you need is less. This is shades of green and Earth Day special from the pulse. Talking about our choices and how they impact the environment. If I say air pollution, you probably think of some pretty specific things congested highways burning coal factory towers belching out black smoke. But a group of scientists recently identified a source of air pollution. That's a lot more personal their journey to discovery ended inside our bathrooms list tongue reports. This is a detective story one about a mystery took a team of scientists over three years to solve driving the case was fearless gumshoe. I'm Brian MacDonald. I'm an atmospheric scientists at the National Oceanic in Atmospheric Administration. Our story starts in Los Angeles back in the summer of twenty ten a bunch of groups had gotten together for this huge study on air pollution about a hundred scientists came down from all around the world, the deployed teams to sites around the city and their goal to investigate pretty much everything that we think of to study in the atmosphere as it relates to urban smog in Los Angeles, Jessica Gilman with another scientists working on the project, and what she and the other researchers were looking for these chemicals volatile organic compound review sees which quick explainer are basically these chemicals that vapid release -ly. It has a Finnity to want to get into the air and also contain carbon. Which is what makes them organic VOC's are everywhere include anything you can smell from grass to gas lead large wildfires forest that pints mother appeal of an orange along with plenty of things you can't. But overall they've got kind of a bad rap. That's because a lot of VOC's, for instance, ones that come from fossil fuels hope for and pollutants like ozone or small particles, which are bad for your health. And also kind of makes that Hayes in that sort of smoggy layer so back to Los Angeles. All these scientists have finished taking measurements at sites around the city. And now their job is to figure out how much pollution there is and where it's coming from the start with the usual suspects. The main thing that we looked at first we're, of course, the emissions from vehicles. But as they're crunching their numbers, they noticed something weird cars only account for maybe half of the pollution. They're finding so they start checking other sources. So there's some natural gas plants that were wind of the site a large power plants in the area. But that didn't explain it either. Clearly, there was something else going on. Impure? There was a missing source, so they've got a mystery on their hands. But Brian has a hunch that the source of his view sees might be right under their noses. And that's when Brian really start digging into these emission Madore Ie's, which are basically these big databases that track the chemicals used by different industries. Brian's idea was to see what kinds of chemicals are in different products that way he could figure out which ones might be contributing to air pollutants. The problem was a lot of companies keep their product formulations a secret, so Brian when looking for information in the only place he could public data sets such as from good US department of commerce agencies like the US Environmental Protection Agency long story short, Brian and his colleagues spend three years collecting all this data. The next up was testing products in the lab to measure their missions. And then seeing if we found the chemical fingerprint of these products and that the air. That's right. They dusted Los Angeles smog for fingerprints. And they found them which led the team street to their culprit as it turned out. The biggest source of these mystery emissions was. Invigorating rainforest fresh body wash spice pure sport, superfish aftershave, a soak Luxy health and Seabury revitalizing shampoo toiletries they were responsible for nearly half of the air pollution that the researchers were finding in Los Angeles personal care products. So things like shampoos deodorants creams lotions. They're also cleaning supplies and garden pesticides and paints, but toiletries came in number one, which even to Brian and his colleagues seemed hard to believe and not just because car exhaust feels way more noxious than refreshing waterfall missed how those little tiny amounts. Couldn't basically match the gallons of gasoline. That are in your car just seemed off like I couldn't reconcile in my head. But then they did some calculations and what they found was that the VOC's toiletries evaporate way faster than the ones in fuel. In fact, that's the main reason why so many products contain VOC. In the first place. They have to solvents carriers for the stuff. We want to spread on her skin. Plus evaporation is what makes fragrances work. So I mean, if you think about what the iota is supposed to do right at supposed to volatile is and emit some nice miles. That was the of Eureka moment to me ya'll you use smaller amounts of it. But almost all of it will eventually end up in the atmosphere. The study is already checking air pollution research around the world and could someday even change the way we regulate emissions personal habits might shift to George Preti has been studying VOC's for years, and he says the VOC's the study talks about aren't just coming from inside people's homes. If you go out to the environment, your omitting, these things I mean, if I if you're close enough to someone on a subway or bus, you could smell the fragrances coming off from the hair, certainly not for my hair because I don't have much George says his lab has found some of these compounds in an even more personal realm. Bodily fluids all of which is even more reason to rethink which products we use and how researcher Brian McDonald says the studies already done that for him. So it makes me has made me a lot more aware of what I'm using as well as trying to seek out for versions of cleaning products as for scientists, Jessica Gilman. This is her advice. Just using the smallest amount needed in order to get the job done. Liz tongue reported this story, and I have to admit even though I just heard all of this. I'm not ready to give up my orange scented cleaner or the shampoo that I love that smell so nice, but I have a really small car, and I almost never use it. But then again, I fly a lot I'm pretty inconsistent in terms of being green. But it is on my mind. Many people just don't worry about it at all. I never think about my carbon footprint. We'll figure it out. And I think that we've made big strides, right? And we'll figure it out. That's l Michener Maryland like about thirty percent of Americans. She doesn't think climate change will affect her. She's not concerned. But she says she still lives simply it's in your own personal interest to conserve and not be wasteful had a grandmother who you know, saved every button and every piece of string and every egg. Shell to fertilize her violets. So I think that is my background to kind of live simply. But it isn't about being green. And by the way, researchers have found that your attitude toward the environment doesn't really predict your carbon footprint. Talking about personal choices big and small that impact the environment, and what motivates us to make them many television viewers feel very attached to their local weather forecasters, they're usually fun and upbeat. They tell us when to bring an umbrella or when to wear a rubber boots store and coming out of the Rockies, excuse me into the plain states, look at all the cloud cover. That's because there's that's the voice of Tom skilling for over forty years. He's been the lovable and enthusiastic weathermen of Chicago's TV station W G N. But when Tom started talking about climate change on the air, some of his viewers pushed back, oh, here's a letter. Dear Tom, skilling user are the dumbest dumb dumb in dumb land. And then he's got me with a dumb camp on despite the occasional hate mail. Tom is still vocal about climate change on air. He sat down with reporter JJ Smith to discuss why more TV meteorologist aren't doing the same. You know, a lot of people think this is some sort of I don't know conspiracy. That people come to us in our bosses say don't you touch that? That's a scary subject. I have never in my experience had any manager ever. Come to me and say don't even go there. No, one of our younger whether people want to do something on climate change and was told by a news manager. Now, be sure you get somebody from the other side of the story, and I stepped in and said, there isn't another side of the story. And I think this young forecaster felt, you know, concern, it's not because anybody came out with an edict and said don't. Talk about it. And I think he was trying to avoid any pitfalls that he's suspected might exist. If you were a young meteorologist are today, and maybe even say somewhere other than Chicago more conservative place is vocally about climate changes. You do. No, I don't think. So and I can think of regions of the country where you better not, you know, if you were working down the deep south where there's a more conservative band, you'd better think about it do use their obligation. Would you say among local broadcast meteorologist to talk about climate change? I think just as a matter. I mean, we're communicating the bottom fascinating system our atmosphere, and all and when it does I'm usual things. I think it's important for us to put in context what's going on. Because people will reject preaching if they think that's what you're doing to them. You wanna bring them along you want to say, hey, here's an interesting piece of evidence in here's how this fits into the big picture. And this is why a group very concerned scientist. Have reached some of the conclusions that they've reached you know, I wasn't quick to come to the climate change. I mean, I didn't immediately buy into the whole climate change scenario when I used to hear model forecasts at the Arctic was going to melt, and all I thought well, you're going to have to prove it to me. My mind was changed by the evidences, I went along. And I see things happening. I haven't seen happen before. And I say. They're right about that. So I can understand why a snowstorm or a cold wave in the middle of a period, you're told the planet is warming is confusing people. There is a great example. Think of what we can do when you do talk about an extreme cold way. You can point out. Yeah. It's cold here. But you've been hearing this discussion of climate change. And look at the big picture. It's unusually hot here. And unusually hot here all the rest, and that's something. I've tried to do while we shivered here in the midwest this past winter, Las Vegas, Phoenix and Miami registered record winter warm. So did Alaska where mammoth avalanches some of the largest ever observed occurred, the UK's all this your job. I don't I don't set out to change minds. It's just that. When something happens that's out of the ordinary. I think part of your job is to say this is out of the ordinary, and here's how we place this in context. And she is an interesting that we're seeing more of these situations show up more frequently and I must say wish more people were talking about it too. In my line of work. That's weathermen Tom skilling. He spoke to reporter Jake J Smith for WBZ in Chicago. The stuff we do to be green. It's personal and often means making real changes that affect other areas of your life. Thirty four year old Meghan adorno. Made a decision to go vegan. No meat. No cheese. No eggs, no animal products period, and for her that means taking care of her health animals and the planet. She talked about all of this while cooking up a quick vegan dinner today were making almost instant chickpeas Medo. So it's super quick and easy. So if you come home from work whip it up in like fifteen minutes from feeding on the cheap, my favorite cookbook feel like there's no bigger benefit than cutting the animal products out of your life for everything for your health for the planet for the animals and the salt. Like, I never have. After going vegan. I dropped forty pounds without changing anything else in my life, which was really nice. Definitely after going vegan felt of much deeper connection with non human animals all of them are individuals. And yeah, don't deserve to be used for goods that we don't actually need to consume and that are detrimental to our health and the health of the planet. The environmental aspect was kind of the last thing that hit me. And that one was when I kind of kicked into gear like I can't sit back and be a quiet vegan. I need to speak up because this is for the planet. It seems crazy to say like, this is all encompassing. But that's how it how it feels. When you start to gather the information, it becomes really apparent like we need to do this. We need I need to get other people to do this because they're going to feel great. They'll be cutting down on how much water they use their land usage, the CO two. I think it's you cut your carbon footprint in half by going just vegetarian. I think and then even more so by going vegan. Now, I can say I'm an environmentalist. And I'm really like doing everything I can my best not to not damage things quite so quickly. That's vegan and home coke magneto. Or no. We're talking about why people make changes or even sacrifices in their lives often. Our actions are motivated by fear. Theorem that we are rapidly destroying the planet in nineteen sixty eight fifty years ago, a book came out that took America by storm certainly hit a great title in. I'm jealous of the title that population. Bob, it featured this sentence on the cover while you are reading these words for people will have died from starvation. The author is Stanford biology professor Paul Erlich, and he painted a nightmarish picture of what lay ahead for the human race early. Was so powerful it's a bomb. It's going to go off. That's Gary mcdonagh an urban anthropologist at Bryn Mawr college in Pennsylvania. Gary wasn't high school when this book came out just about to go to college and reading it really influenced him. He was talking about inevitable deaths of millions of people after we after which we might survive. So is very dark Paul Erlich fast. Talking handsome and. Eloquent became a popular guest on talk shows and the book sold millions of copies. He hammered home. The message that the earth would soon be unable to feed all of the people on it. If we want to avoid a tremendous rise in the death rate. We absolutely must have tremendous decrease in the birth rate early played upon fears of things we didn't know Gary mcdonagh says people of all ages were talking about this book, the sixties were a time of great upheaval. And Gary says it became part of a larger discussion both in terms of reflecting on who we were. And what are possibilities and responsibilities were and reflecting upon the context in which we lived which seemed much more chaotic than we'd imagined it. I was coming out of a generation had been raised believe that everything was hours in terms of the postwar generation, and suddenly realizing that there were limits on it. This shiny promise of the fifties. With big cars and pastel colored refrigerators had given way to fear is about limited resources than a day of reckoning for all that consumption was near that sends of doom is depicted in the early nineteen seventies science fiction movies z p g which stands for zero population growth. It was inspired by early book because it has been agreed by the nations of the world. The earth can no longer sustain a continuously increasing population. As of today, the first of January, we join with all other nations of the world in the following eating child. Berry is Iranian or visit. Nightime talk shows, Paul Erlich didn't stump for government to forbid all procreation. But he came close you could move to giving women bonuses for not having babies that almost certainly would do the job if that didn't have the effect then you can move to changing the tax structure. So that people who had the money and had the children paid for the children. The words you would increase taxes on people with children if that doesn't work then you'll have the government legislating the size of the family and people say, oh that's impossible. Government can never intrude until you. How many children have? Well, I got news. You know, it intruded a longtime ago until you how many wives you can have. And there's not the slightest question than we don't get the population under control voluntary means that in the not-too-distant future. The government will tell you how many children can have and throw you in jail. If you have too many. Apologist. Gary mcdonagh says once he got to college students would web button sayings EPG's zero population growth, the sense of crisis since of a need to change many things was very important to contact your congressman and to start talking to your neighbors, most of the population bomb predictions, haven't come true. But Gary says the worry is still there. We didn't actually resolve all these problems we dodge some so we've learned to live with food for larger populations. But famine is still a problem today pushing for population control policies around the globe has become somewhat taboo, this topic is attached to some troubling history. Millions of four sterilizations in India in the nineteen seventies. China's brutal enforcement of their longtime one child policy even strident environmentalists shy away. From it as a possible solution, but lots of individual people still consider the environment. When they are starting a family think about it in the nineteen seventies the earth's population was three point seven billion. Now, it's over seven billion Kerry fiber worried about those numbers when she became a mom, and it didn't help that she was living in the oil capital of the world. When I was thirty four years old, I left New York City for a reporting job in Houston, Texas. A lot of my friends were incredulous Houston, don't expect visit New York had media and finance. San Francisco had tech LA was movies, but Houston was oil and gas and petrochemicals. I was always reminded that Houston's economic heart runs on fossil fuels east of downtown. There are miles of refineries petrochemical plants bristling with pipes and flare. Stacks belching flames or black smoke when I first got there. I would ask is that thing on fire and people would laugh. No, that's just a gas flare. They're burning off excess. It was beautifully apocalyptic like a scene from Bladerunner. It always been anxious about global warming. But not just global warming all of it, the dying corals and acid rain and the little animals that were going extinct before we even discovered them or named them but living in Houston, really ratcheted that up it was like a constant trigger for my echoing Zayed's. But I also kind of liked that the honesty of it. Hugh stones have no illusions. They know exactly where the gas in their car comes from. And where the air conditioning comes from and what that costs to their wallets and the environment. I sort of love the weird contradictions of the place. Instead of my husband, Eric, we met in Houston and got married and in twenty twelve our daughter was born it was mid December the last day of Hanukkah, and she was our healthy. Eight pound present. Yeah. I can't tell. Joanie nursed a little and then she cried a lot. She was the loudest baby on the maternity floor. What did I expect really naming my daughter after a singer? As child a little bit with all my crazy. My husband Eric still looks back on those first few months with a little bit of fatherly PTSD. Just to get Johnny to sleep was a ton of work. I mean it had to swallow swallow her super tied. I had to bouncer on a yoga ball for forty five minutes to an hour. Eric knew pretty early on that he would be totally fine. If we were one and done, I was more conflicted. I always wanted kids I thought kids, plural. But now that I had a kid ahead to decide right away. Whether I wanted another one was already forty so I didn't have the luxury of time. And yet a second child also felt like a luxury we couldn't afford not just in terms of money, but also in freedom and energy. And then there was my Houston problem the flare stacks the hurricanes. The floods. I was starting to doubt. Whether a second child was something the planet could handle either. Up. Cain Kotil spot. That's the first Joni Mitchell song, I remember hearing back in the seventies. When I was a little girl didn't really understand it. But I knew it was sad. Now, I knew too much. I'd read books about the environment and about family size. And I learned about the carbon footprint of Americans of an American kid. It's huge toys the vacations the birthday parties, the ice cream cones wanted Joni to have those cream cones because otherwise why have Joni but did I need to Jones? Jones five now enough sides to her personality to be her own sibling. And she thinks big too. Ganesha here. When people come dinosaurs works. Because. John there long ago. The decision to stop with her wasn't strictly environmental. But it's done a lot to ease. My echoing Zion. A second child would double the consumption double the emissions and the study showed no amount of recycling. Not even giving up meat cars and airplanes for the rest of my life would ever be able to make up for it. It's not the only way to cut back, but having one less kid kind of let's do it in one fell swoop Joanie is my one fell swoop Kerry fiber is a health editor she now lives in Oakland, California, where she's met some folks who are more environmentally neurotic than she's.

40 Years of Broadcasting The Weather

"On the outside looking in living in the midwest during winter months can be brutal. You've got frigid temperatures that can take your breath away blizzards that will stack the snow over the roof of your house. But today's guests knows a thing to about mid west winters. Tip of the iceberg. Tom skilling has been the chief meteorologist WGN TV in Chicago since nineteen seventy eight. Now, if you're counting that's forty years in that span of time, it can feel like the media in television industry can change as much as the weather will talk about these changes and so much more with legendary broadcast meteorologist, Tom skilling I'm Dr Marshall shepherd from the university of Georgia, and this is the weather podcasts top. Thank you so much for joining us marshal. It is an absolute pleasure. And finally to meet you, you know, funneled your work for for years, but we've never had a chance to actually visit. So I'm flattered you'd ask and advised me on here and I'm looking forward to talking with isn't, isn't that amazing? I know we've shared a couple of emails and almost gas pass a few times when I was AMS president but have not actually had a chance to speak with each other. So it's it's my honor. It's an honor for me to be. Able to talk to you right back at you Marshall. It's it's a real honor here in by the way. I think what you do in educating the public on meteorology is just amazing. Your Forbes column, all of your outreach is is amazing. So thank you for including me in this podcast, it's going to be fun. Well, I think that first of all, thank you so much, but really it's, it's my honor your legend in meteorology, and it's someone we've wanted to have on the weather podcasts. And so I want wanna take a journey through your career. We're gonna start at the beginning and then town of midway through talk a little bit more about sort of your WGN years. And then I wanna get your thoughts on a variety of topics at the end. But I wanted to dive in to sort of just telling the listeners where you grew up in, what was it like growing up in those midwest winters? Well, tell you Marcia was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Don't remember it only live there two years. My folks are natives of the Pittsburgh area, and then my dad. Was transferred out commuted into New York everyday from New Jersey. So I lived thirteen years in a commuter suburb Westfield, New Jersey, and then my dad was transferred out to the mid west in nineteen sixty five. So the whole family moved out here and it's been a delight. I worked grownup and worked here all those years. I went up to the university of Wisconsin. That's where I studied from seventy seventy four and worked in Milwaukee, three years worked in Jacksonville, Florida for a year. But basically I've been here in the mid west and I've been here at WGN since nineteen seventy eight. And you know, Marshall, I needn't tell you. I tell our young interns in the young people with whom I work, who are always amazing if you had to parachute into a profession at a fascinating time in its history. The past fifty years in meteorology has been stunning. I, it's just. Amazing. You know, one of my dear friends and he was finishing his doctorate when I was up at the university of Wisconsin is Louie Seleny and. Yes, indeed. And another past president of the m s and of course they head of our weather service. But you know, I remember we would gather on the fourteenth floor of the space science and engineering building. We call ourselves the facts rats when I was going to school back in the early seventies and as an undergrad, I'd be there with the grad students and marveling at their command of the subject. And wondering if ever there would be a moment where I had anything close to their level of expertise as we discussed the impending storm in its development. I learned so much in those though sessions, but I say to Louis, when I see him now Louis, would you have imagined this profession would have come as far as it has in terms of remote-sensing modeling it. It's been an amazing revolution as series of revolutions that we've all been party to. Yeah, I wanted to actually ask you about that. Tom. I actually spent a little time. There at the university of Wisconsin. Oh, probably about a year and a half to go. I was invited up to give a talk, and I was, I think at the top of that building that you were talking about, it was really an amazing view, but you you were there. It was kansin during a time when things like satellites were still new weather presentation software was being developed. So I was curious what the energy like is young meteorologist at that time just to see some of these things really in their infancy that we sort of take for granted now. Oh, your show your show accurate on that, you know, that was an amazing. It was a kind of a scary time during the Vietnam war that there was a lot of instability on that campus and all related to the war. But I kind of kept by sanity by hanging out in the the weather, building there and with fellow meteorology students. And I'll tell you something we would sit in classes and watch Dr. Bernard Asumi was there. Of course, the FAA. Other of the geosynchronous orbit weather satellite Madison. The w campus is considered the birthplace of satellite meteorology, and indeed it is. It is one of my professors at Florida State University was Eric Smith who working closely with Verne Sumi. Yes, it's incredible. We sham and watched land falling hurricanes. Real time at this would seem amazing young people in our profession today, but we had never seen that before. And of course they develop a kite up there, which was, you know a system that naval you to lay atmospheric parameters on top of satellite imagery and understand the mechanisms that were driving the weather's development. We had not seen that before it was in stunning. And in very real sense all the databases we use today have at their core, you know, mckiness which is still in use at the national weather service. Sure, sure. It's, it's stunning. But you know, I met Dr sue me one time at a gathering Christmas gathering years later, and I said, you know, you really were visionary. How in the world did you understand is completely as you did, what having these space platforms would allow us to see how we could remotely sense the atmosphere. And of course he was very much in favor of all the countries of the world talking to their respective governments, getting them involved in the launching of satellites and heave envisioned a world in which we would see every weather system from birth to death, which of course has become a total reality and we're able to remotely sensed the poorly observed. Oceanic areas in initialized are incredible numerical models bottles that get better and better with each passing day and here. So it was. A lot of stuff going on up there at the time and just amazing. I can't imagine being there at that time. We're talking with Tom skilling WGN TV chief meteorologist who celebrated his fortieth anniversary with WGN TV homework. Tell you something. Homework, but I, you know, I have to give credit to my colleagues here the Weather Channel as well. They, they do nice job of doing research and allow me to come in and talk to great. I mean, let's just keep. Can I keep it real with the listeners for a second. Tom skilling is a legend in the field. Is I can't imagine that that's not the case if you're listening to this podcast. I mean, I grew up in the Atlanta, Georgia area, Tom and GM being one of the super stations we could get you in in Georgia. So I mean, I grew up watching you at times. I know one of my good friends Allen seals even worked with you for time. There's a cop. Yeah. What are you any good story Allen St., seal stories. He's current president or outgoing president of the. Oh, tell you something. It's been fun to watch that career takeoff in Allan carries the same passion toward this profession that you and I and so many of our colleagues have. There's a unique love and affection. I think, for science in for the way nature works among people in our line of work and Alan definitely possessed that, and his career has been a testament to just the what an amazing Graf of a grasp of the subject and passion for it. That Allen exudes. You know, something else I used to get together with John Coleman here who did the weather on the local station and is he was envisioning putting the Weather Channel together. We would get together after our respective ten o'clock shows here and go to a little restaurant in downtown Chicago. We remember one time Kerry Carey. The famous legendary baseball announcer walk by. Yes, he walked by one night as we were all sitting there and I'd be there with John and Pam Penniston his article, his artist, and I remember he was frustrated because he did the weather on good Morning America by the lack of time he had and I one day John, there's going to come day when there's a twenty four hour Weather Channel and we're gonna have all the time we need. And he kind of looked at the curiously in several weeks later during the subsequent dinner, he said, you know that whether channel you were talking about, I've been working on putting that together, he would do. He was approached by the today, show to go to work for them and do the weather and had a handshake agreement with his management here in Chicago that if an at work opportunity came along, they would let him go. But the several general managers had passed since this end shake agreement had been reached. And when he went into the today show's after me, they said, well, I, we don't recognize that agreement. You have to stay here on our local show. Oh, so he would do the evening news stay up all night. Get ready for good Morning America and then get on planes to New York or wherever where he would talk to Madison Avenue folks and proposed the idea of a Weather Channel. And he did a demo tape in Merv Griffin studio. The first one that laid out what a Weather Channel might look like because nobody at that time had any idea what a Weather Channel would be. So we went out there spent a whole weekend, produce a half hour Taeb. And I remember thinking, wow, how are we gonna pull this off in real time what it takes two days to make a half hour, Tim o. tape, but clearly it's happened. You know, the Weather Channel is a phenomenon and you know, I don't know what happened with John on the climate change issue. I, he and I would have some very Frank discussions about that today. I wanna talk to you later about some of that because as you will know, as I do former president of EMS and you being such a sort of Nikon in our field, they're sort of some divergence even in the broadcast community on the whole notion of weather presentation versus climate. I know. Yeah. Let's say that because I wanna I wanna I wanna that towards the end, but I'm going to circle back to that. I, I want to kind of get to something when you talking about Alan that I'm curious about with you because I know you actually started some on air work as early as age fourteen, but what made you want to pursue? Meteorology. And did you know even if that point that you always wanted to be on camera Marshall? I had no idea. I never shut out to be a media, whether type never from a little boy. I had paper routes, and I made four or five dollars a week and miam- vision was to put a bedroom radar set in and I even wrote Bendix corporation and you know, to get the price stats, it was so foolish to think that with my four dollar a week paper road, I might be able at some point to buy a radar, but I used to buy whether quit, I went through the Belfort instrument company, catalogs and sciences soci-. It's and I used to dream about the Instrum. I was going to buy. And as it turns out I only had enough money to buy a sling, say cropper and a, you know, a barometer in a mid match their monitor. I couldn't afford the the really cool stuff. And I remember my price possession was the wind scope. Anna monitor and win vein, which my dad talk to somebody and got it half price. It was one hundred dollars at the time. We got it for fifty dollars and I put that on my roof and at any rate when we moved from New Jersey out here to the midwest used to get the daily weather map out of the office of the superintendent of documents. It was a daily weather map publication, beautifully done done by the by the United States weather bureau at that time and subsequently renamed the weather service of, but I get it the next day because it was mailed from Washington, and you get a surface map of five hundred milligrams chart. And as young person, we didn't have the internet. There was no way to get an upper air chart, and I used to wonder when I watch. I looked at the weather pages in the New York Times, the Newark evening news how it was when they put that little insert map that showed you what the weather map tomorrow was going to be like how they knew that that front which had no waves on it was going to develop a wave on it. That would turn into a big storm. I used to think that was amazing and I figured, well, it must have something to do with the upper air. Any rate that I could kind of follow with the daily weather map through the upper heard map. But the problem was when I moved out here to Chicago, this came four days later. It was too late to, you know, look at a real time reflection of what was going on in the weather, and I was frustrated. So I wrote a radio station in Aurora western suburb of Chicago. I'm told it was an eight page letter, and I said, look, if you can get me some current weather maps, how do a forecast for you this from a fourteen year old? And they thought, well, it's kind of an intriguing cuts. The guests Russ. He Tim was a program director and I got the car. We drove in here to the. Then United States weather bureau office on the university of Chicago campus top to guide show folks who is head of the office here, and he agreed to send out maps. We'd provide self addressed stamped envelopes, and they had a big Bruening architects type reproduction machine. 'cause they hand plotted a lot of maps in those days within the office. And the Chicago office was doing the forecast for Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Iowa's. If memory serves me completely that all came out of Chicago, and and so they would send these maps out and we would pay the reproduction costs and I got my weather maps, but I also got a foot in the door and media weather, and that's how I started on the media track. So Laos was kind of it was sparked by this interest and curiosity, and then an opportunity presented itself. And I guess the rest forty plus years later history. Yeah, yeah. It's really interesting. You know, you have been pretty much in Chicago most of your career. Do you think you could live in a city and forecast in another city or have even even presented it? So I know you said you were there at some other cities prior, but really people know you as Chicago. Yeah, you know, Marshall us spent a career following the weather in a given area and yet develop an expertise and only gained through year after year and decade after decade in an area, I feel so totally comfortable. I grew up in New Jersey. I did hurricane tracking charts and all figured when I moved out to the mid west, the the only thing I would miss out here would be hurricanes and tropical cyclones that we'd have about everything else. Well, you know, we have these severe weather up breaks. I've been here and witness to the coldest temperature ever recorded on record out here in eighty two and eighty five. We had the biggest snowstorm that changed the mayor through and the entire political structure of the city and chaos in seventy eight with mayor Jane Byrne and Michael Bowland Bowland was mayor at the time said everything was going just swell and get a snowstorm crippled the city and everybody in the city knew it wasn't and he lost his job to Jane Byrne. I've been here for the the horrible Plainfield tornado that struck without warming warning and a late August day in nineteen ninety. We saw that terrible heatwave disaster. The largest it to this day is the largest loss of life do a natural disaster in our city. It was the heat in July of nineteen ninety-five which takes on great relevance in our discussions of climate change. Yeah, and t ninety five. I remember that well, and it really speaks to this notion that he can be as deadly as some of the more genyk or sort of dramatic weather like tornadoes and hurricanes. So true. So true and we proved it here. We lost over seven hundred Chicagoans many of whom never were properly dente fide. There were all kinds of sociological studies done afterwards about the elderly and the young perished in that and and how it was related to. The breakdown of the family structure and and our neighborliness looking in on others and the elderly that live in our midst and how important it is. We do that in these extreme weather events, so it was amazing a year later, we had a catastrophic flood. The biggest ever in the state of annoy seventeen inches of rain fell in twenty four hours. We had homes with water up to the third floor dorms after that. So I the experience here in the mid west has been phenomenal. I can't see moving anywhere else at this late stage in my life and I wouldn't want to I, I remember news consoles one time. So would you consider job on the west coast? I said in those days we didn't have the mess. Oh scale. Modeling, we do today and the satellite imagery I said to them. No, I I remember attending a weather conference where the meteorologist can be said the most exciting thing that goes on here in Los Angeles is the. Rise in the ascension and the sinking of the inversion layer with direly out there. Yep, exactly. And I thought that's not for me. And yet, you know, the weather is fascinating in every region of the country in its own way. I just happened to feel comfortable after all these years with our mid west weather and it's victories and they are something to to see. You're listening to this podcast, there's a good chance you love weather, and if you love whether there's no better place to visit than we love whether dot TV, we love weather.

Later and be a part of the most passionate weather fan base at love, weather dot TV. And welcome back to the weather podcast. I'm Dr Marshall shepherd from the university of Georgia, and I'm having a great time talking to Tom skilling WGN TV chief meteorologist. I wanna pivot you. You've heard me mention a few times at Tom, a pioneer allege. Let me just put some proof behind those statements. Tom's known for his extended an in-depth weather forecast at g. and over a decade ago, he coordinated the launch of the Tribune weather center, which combined television station with the Chicago Tribune newspaper. Those are pioneering in addition to being in Volva WGN, which is one of the early super stations that reach people all across the nation. So those pioneering efforts and there are many other things as well. What was your motivation for some of the types of unique things that you've brought to the broadcast meteorology field? Well, I'll tell you one thing. You know, we in the weather. Profession. All of us are great at conceptualizing how nature's putting our weather together. We have to do that in order to be able to forecast it. So in in terms of my television presentations, I always was frustrated by the plexiglas boards and the magnetic the blinking highs and lows. You know, which constituted a weather show years ago. I thought this so much more in this story to put a cross. So we were among the first stations in this market to computerize our weather graphics, I always felt that was the way to go as well as accessing the amazing satellite imagery and putting this across. We've been excited to put the model data that all of us in meteorology in broadcast meteorology can put across and share with our viewers today in terms of the newspaper weather page. I was always frustrated at how poor a lot of these weather pages were. They've improved a great deal since then, but I always thought. What the Tribune weather page would be a success. If it was hanging on the wall of the classrooms around the area, and if we could use not only the page is a means to communicate tomorrow's weather in the weather and the, you know the days ahead but also to educate somehow. So we incorporate a little vignette every day which tries to describe how and conceptualized graphically how the weather's going to be put together. I always thought that Dr Ted Fujita and his ability to visualize tornadoes and micro Burson down person on the work he did over the years, you go through his catalog of papers and and the visuals he produced. He was a master at that, and it made it clear to people how the weather was working. And I think there's an increased relevance to the weather when that's the case. Yeah, I, I hear you completely which. As you noted earlier, that's one of the things I try to do in the Forbes that I write, and we had Greg Forbes on the weather geeks podcast earlier in the year, and he talked about some of that very thing. Now, one thing that you mentioned though you talked about the in depth weather forecast that you do WGN and you talk about these. Marshall, what I was going to say. I've driven many TV producer crazy. I, you know, they. Meteorologist in the country time is always one of the biggest complaint. So yeah, I bet it is director is going crazy, but hey, when you're Tom skilling, you can do that because one. Well. Well, no, it's serious. People might be listening to this. The weather block of newscast is very important to a newscast and also one of them, one of the more commercially viable parts of the newscasts. And when you have one of the best in the buildings, give them all the time they need is my philosophy. But I wanted to ask you something about the evolution of weather casting. So many people get their weather information from smartphones from apps maybe from. So has that changed in any way or forced you to change your presentation style. Oh, the whole media world has been transformed. We when I started, you prepared a radio programs broadcast in you, you you did television whether shows today were on all the platforms are media. Companies realize they've got to go where the audiences in the audience is on hand held devices and online, and tracking Facebook and Twitter, and all the rest show. You know, the job today is become of far more broadly based. We're on as we say on all the platforms and working on that. Did or bad thing, Tom that we have the chance because I've heard mixed feelings. Here's some younger colleagues have gotten into the business that have gotten out because they feel like they can't focus just on being a meteorologist. They're having to do so many things. What's your thought on this is someone has seen it all. Oh, I think I think there is some legitimate criticism of that. I find many television stations. They go up and contract with outside whether providers for, for instance, a lot of the digital conic forecasts. You get on these handheld devices and they put our names on it, but we really don't do those forecasts. We're concentrating on our television and so forth, but they want to have a presence, twenty four hours and and of course I always feel find conic forecast terribly lacking anyway. They simp- the weather is far more complex than what I can communicate on a forecast. And I think our severe weather coverage at times gets a little out of hand. I, you know, well, you know, I'm often put at the top of the show with an inch of snow forecast in January or a cold era break. And I've, I've had. Any discussions with producers. I feel that position in the newscast oughta be reserved for a true catastrophe or something that's really of life threatening consequence. And I'm told in rebuttal that, well, you know, you've got rush hour traffic and an inch of snow can cause much trouble is sometimes sixteen inch snow. And there's, we certainly know about that down here in Atlanta, if you're. Couple of early CDC's sort of the sort of pushback back on either side of that given the importance of whether to the overall station bottom line to some degree. Well, I think you know if we, if we overreact to some of these situations, I think we diminish the credibility. I think people people pretty well understand how the media works and they've you. It is hyping situation for ratings, and I must tell you that I have never in my career, had a news director coming and say, look, you're going to invent a situation that isn't developing that isn't real in order for us to get higher ratings. What's been discovered. The Marshall, as you well know is an has so eloquently put across is the fact that weather is very important. I when I started forty fifty years ago, you were told by the news consultants that they referring to your audience. We're. Only interested in if it's going to rain what the temperature is going to be only for tomorrow, the five day forecast was not really. You know something people waited for that his radically changed. Now, if there's a reason to put the weather on its viewed as a reason to go with the weather and in a way, I'm grateful that that's happened because it it reinforces my view that that I've always had that people are inherently interested in this amazing atmosphere within which all of us operate and the its workings. I would agree. I would agree with that as well. Tom, that's how the whole weather geeks concept came about here at the women. Mike, just or feel who's from Naperville executive producer of weather, geeks and director of graphics and presentations here. I'm not sure if it's exact title. You know, they sort of tapped into this notion at people, love weather and they, they didn't want it sort of at a cursory level. They wanted a deep dive in the what we meteorologists were doing and the concepts that we're using. And even with this podcast, they're getting eavesdrop onto experts in the field. And so it's right. This is the whole concept of what we're trying to do with whether geeks, well, I, you've taken it to a new level and I and you know, it's it's so fun to see somebody else who shares such deep passion but also has developed a means to communicate with the public because I think people are interested in this and why not. We swim in this oceanic atmosphere every single day at affects the way our bodies work. It affects our outlook on life, whether we can work on certain days or go to school, our health, our, our fitness it in affects every aspect of our lives. So little wonder that people would find it interesting. Even down to the basic, how do I dress for tomorrow? There's so many levels in which the weather impacts our lives every single day and every moment of every. Take the guesswork out of your morning routine and start your mornings off, right with AM HQ on the Weather Channel. Every weekday, starting at five AM eastern Jim cantore, Stephanie Abrams, Jen fag. No. Tell you everything you need to know to prepare for the day ahead. You'll get more than just the forecast. You'll get stories of the day and the science behind the forecast with unrivalled expertise and unparalleled weather presentation start your day with AM HQ starting at five AM eastern only on the weather. We are back on the weather gets podcast. I'm Dr Marshall shepherd in. We are in our last segment and I've enjoyed it so much, but I wanna use this last segment to just pick Tom skilling brain on a couple of things. He's a big believer in education. I know he has some thoughts on climate and the climate change discussion. But before I get to those two things, I did want to ask you what is Chicago's toughest forecast over your years there? Forty years. What is the most difficult sort of forecasts area that you deal with their? I think these wetter storms, which often can produce a variety of whether across the same viewing area. I literally one day had a situation which there was flash flooding going on. The show ended do page county are western media western county here, and there was a blizzard in progress in the north end of it. And I had people calling me names on both sides of the rain, snow line and. And you know the, the people in the blizzard area says, what are you talking about a flash flood? We're, we've got zero visibility out here and then hung up from that call and we, you know, we laid it out beautifully. I thought and clearly. But then somebody called from the rainy side of the rain. Snow line said, you're crazy. I, you know, what's his talk snow? It's raining like crazy and my road is flooding and my yard. So the variety of weather and placing these rings snow lines continues even in this day and age to be a real challenge. And and one that's interesting too, and challenging to communicate though. We have marvelous graphics today that allow us to do this in. Of course, the commu- computer modeling that's been done is just amazing. Yeah, the high resolution stuff coming out now, the h our model just unbelievable. Yeah, but living in Atlanta and having lived in DC area that reigns. Snow line. I would agree as a significant headache as well. I want to kind of pivot to discussion that you kind of tease earlier in the podcast and this this sort of divergent view at times among even broadcast meteorologist colleagues on climate change. What is your on this and has it evolved any or has it sort of been pretty steady all along? Oh, it's volved amazingly. I am absolutely convinced. I don't think there's any any question that our climate is changing and it's doing so profoundly and rapidly and with incredible consequences. I mean, look at this past summer wildfires in the west flooding Florence representing, you know. To stage producing two states record tropical cyclone rainfalls an ad that to Wii and Texas, and it's done it within a year. We've had four flood situations in the Chicago area at one point or another. During the past year, you have drought and in Europe and wildfires in northern Scandinavia. Drought in Australia, Japan, going from high heat to floods, you know, an incredible heat in the Pakistan and India and so forth. This is happening and what's really distressing is that the current political leadership in Washington doesn't get it. You feel inclined to say, I wish somebody out there would pick up a book or bring a scientist into the mix to inform them about what's going on. This is not the time to be taking the approach, burn, baby burn when it comes to fossil fuels. I just bought an electric car. It's the best thing I've ever done. It's definitely the wave of the future. I think the day will come Marshall when we look at gas stations as being a part of antiquity. The way we do the blacksmiths I could see that being the case, but I wanna pick up on something. You just said, because it was a question I wanted to ask you because I know how big you are giving talks and going out in the schools. Do you think we're doing enough? Because I think part of the issue, some some of the sort of whole climate pushback is just a misinformation campaign because as in clear his said, it's difficult to get a man to understand something when a salary depends on him, not understanding it. So some of that play, but do. Do you think we're getting enough science in elementary schools and lessons across the country. Some of this? No, I don't. And and I think we in the media have to do more as well. Look, you don't want to shove this down people's throat because it'll be an obvious adverse reaction to that. And that's not our intention. This first of all is not a political issue. It's a scientific issue where it becomes politicals. We need policymakers to do make informed judgments on what to do about it or try and do about it. But no, I think we have to, I think, using real time, I think this effort to attribute extreme weather events and climate changes role in them where it's possible is a good move. Talking about attribution science for those just kind of the forefront of the climate science and I agree it has potential can be can be misused, but I think you're right. It's something that we certainly need to go down that road. I think you're right, Marshall, and and I know you do it in your column regularly and and eloquently I've worked, I have the joy of working with Don wobbles out of the university of Illinois. He's one of the major, yes. He's Beijing behind the national climate assessments. He was one of the movers and shakers and getting the Montreal protocol passed. It banned chlorofluorocarbon propellant from our aerosol cans. They were destroying our own layer and we found recently the Chinese are cheating on that and releasing CFC back into the air. Again, they've been addenda fide and something presumably will be done about that, but it, you know, the Montreal protocol proved one thing. We got all the countries of the world together at working toward one goal, and we proved that we can have an impact on a negative trends in our environment, and we should be approaching this the same way. I, I'm. Horrified. What I've seen go on with the policy is dismantling of the EPA those scrubbing of climate change data and mention from EPA websites among others. The banning of the use of the term climate change in Florida among state officials. I think this is preposterous and ill-timed to put it mildly. So I think we must continue to educate and point out to people because unless it happens in people's backyards, I don't think they understand that this really is an issue, but Dan, but Tom, one of the things that I've heard from tallies in our field and is, you know your broadcaster and you, you have a certain standard there. Some, I'm, you know, this was something that I with wells president of AMS this notion in some markets. There are some broadcast, you're all are hesitant to talk about the topic or even what even mention it for fear of pushback ratings. Oh, coming across. How, how have you. Navigated that Marshall. I think just longevity in the market. I'm able to say things that a young broadcaster and meteorologist might not be able to say, and I absolutely concur with you. I think there's some markets. We're pretty progressive up here in Chicago. You could talk about climate change, and when I look at the forums that we do, I've been working with a lot of our congress people and all who have put together public forums on this that turn outs are amazing. The level of question it questioning that goes on in this indicates we've got a population that understands this is an issue and is curious and interested in forming themselves more about it. There are some markets where you couldn't do that, I'm sure, and it's a shame I, that's a real dilemma about it. You you talked about forums. I wanted to make sure I talked to a little bit about tornado and severe storms seminar at Fermilab that's going on thirty thirty five years or so. That is happening. It will. You know, this was the first year we didn't do it it. We've done it every April and we have had a literal who's who of the science, the severe weather research and forecasts community. And gosh, we've had Ted foot Gino we've had Chuck does well run down the list. Burgess has been in even Kelvin. Tro Ghimire was one of our speakers on science adviser. Just recently confirmed for the president. Oh, I tell you his his presentation on numerical modelling, the atmosphere which I had to Google to remember the year that we had Kelvin in. It was two thousand five. I know lie Marshall. This was one of the best presentations. Ida sat there and all listening to him. Describe to a lay audience. What's involved in this? The presentation was engaging. It was fascinating. It was articulate and and beautifully. Done as any I've ever heard on a complex subject like this. He is amazing as have been so many Don Burgess talking about Doppler radars role in the work he's done over career. In this in this arena, we've had folks from NASA, your al-matar, one of them, and I, you know what an amazing organization that is. That's why we've got to watch carefully and make sure that an incredible operation like NASA. One of the gems in this country's crown is not as properly funded and not restrained by the political climate. I completely agree and I serve on Nasr's cheer Nasr's earth science advisory committee. And I will say that Minnesota Brian Stein has been very. Saying the right things and doing the right things on that topic that I'm running out of time, but I wanted to get your final thoughts on what you think the future of weather forecasting on air weather presentation is, is there something that you see in your crystal ball and zero to five year out hero the ten year timeframe that you just see coming? Well, I tell you something. I think this immersion graphic technology that the Weather Channel employed to describe storm surge. For instance, we're going to see more of this where this improvement in visualization of science, including meteorology, is going to continue as we have better and better computers and better and better software to put these. These sorts of presentations across the modeling that's done is getting better by the day, and it's really standing. We're going to see that continue to improve. I think. The outlook is is very sunny there lot of platforms on which this information will be communicated and that reach a greater number of people. And so I think I think for those of us who are engaged in this line of work, it's going to be a fascinating period. And I include the research community that on who shoulders, all of us stand as media types. It's, you know, it's one of the things that was big that we try to do my tenure AMS really foster this notion of the weather enterprise. I think you're a big part of it. If if my career ended today, this is one of the highlights of it having a chance to spend little under an hour with Trump skilling. I'm gracious, and thank you so so much for joining us on the weather geeks, podcast, Marshall. It has been an honor beyond words to work with you on this. And I, I hope we do it again, and I'm just thrilled that I've had a chance finally. Tonight look forward to doing it finished phase. Thank you. Jim.

Withstanding This Week's Polar Vortex, The Coldest Temperatures In At Least 20 Years

"From WB. You are Boston and NPR I'm Meghna chucker body. And this is on point tens of millions of Americans are enduring the coldest weather in a generation in Chicago today, a bone chilling, minus forty nine with wind chill that Matt yesterday, Illinois Governor, Jay Pritzker, ordered a state disaster proclamation. This storm poses a serious threat to the wellbeing of people all across our state. And for those reasons, I am issuing a disaster proclamation. So that the state of Illinois can use every tool at our disposal to provide relief to our residents and to keep them safe. Well, the entire midwest is facing dangerously low temperatures as a polar vortex freezes the region stopping male canceling school. Grounding flights even threatening lives this hour on point the house, the wise and how to endure the polar vortex, and you can join us if you're enduring those super cold temperatures today, how are you fair? How have you been preparing you looking after her helping to look after your less fortunate residents? What's it like to face this cold? Join us anytime at point radio dot org or Twitter and Facebook it on point radio and little later this hour, we're gonna take a look at the lasting effects of the government shutdown on America's national parks. That's later in the program. But first, let's talk right about that cold weather and joining us from Chicago is Tom skilling chief meteorologist at WGN TV where he's been forecasting the weather for the past forty years. Tom welcome to the program. Magna a pleasure to be with you. And it is cold up here. This morning magnet Twenty-three below is our current temperature and we have a wind chill of fifty one below. And you don't make good to put this in some sort of historical perspective there we have fifty four thousand and twenty temperatures on record here going back to eighteen seventy. And this is only the seventeenth time of all those temperatures that we've had to read. Twenty below zero. It will also be only the third time that we've had back to back nighttime lows of twenty below or colder 'cause we're expecting another subzero reading tonight. We broke a old record this morning will break a record for the coldest high temperature today, we're expecting only fourteen degrees below zero as a daytime high today, and then twenty six below tonight. It's it's unimaginable. I I'm looking out on Lake Michigan, which looks like a boiling cauldron is this Arctic air hits the open water scheme as rotating up buildings or creaking and popping. We're getting sun dogs these suspended ice crystals in the Arctic here produce halos around the sun. So there are optical affects with this as well. Oh my goodness. I mean, it sounds. I mean, it sounds like a cold Pakalitha. Honestly, Tom, the how long is Helen's this is expected to last. Well, you know what? Interesting. This is come on quickly. It will end quickly in fact by this weekend. We're expecting a sixty nine degree temperature increase between tomorrow's twenty six below and the forty three that we expect that's forty-three above with rain if you can believe on Sunday. So we're going to merge from this quite dramatically allow I mean, so that might be great for people. And of course, we are concerned about people's wellbeing across the midwest. But I can't imagine that that giant those giant temperature. Swings are good for infrastructure. I mean, how is the city of Chicago ready or dealing with the effects of the cold or on the city and the giant temperatures when you're talking about. That's all this on the way. So true. You know, it's amazing the resources of government every level of government are bare Mira manual. Our governor all have been on the air in media, and every way, shape and form they can to inform the public we have homeless in the city as we do in all cities. There's. An effort to get these folks into shelter. You know, Meg it. It's a it's a sad fact that people will die during this. They do during these cold waves. The hope here is to minimize loss of life. And of course, we got another issue. This cold air is hitting with wind. This is creating ground blizzard conditions in some of the Royal roads surrounding here, and that's been true for Minnesota through Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana open areas, so many many ways which was venting has been affecting us, but heating centers have been open. We have some experience with cold weather. We had two mornings in nineteen eighty two that went down to twenty six below and our coldest temperature in the cities record books was the twenty seven below on January twentieth. Nineteen eighty five. So it's been awhile since we've had anything that's called three and a half decades. But we have some. Experience dealing with this and loss of life and injury is an obvious risk. And we're trying to mitigate or officials out here. We don't want since you mentioned the the dangerous for a homeless Chicagoans. I just wanna play a little bit of tape here. Because Nancy powers of the Salvation Army is one of you know, many volunteers in Chicago who are trying to help the homeless there. She spoke to CBS reporter dean Reynolds just a couple of days ago. Are you concerned before going to die here? We are very concerned we offered them shelters. We offer them the warming centers and will drive from there. So that's Nancy powers of the Salvation Army WGN. Reporter Nancy Lou talked about how the cold has affected Chicago's most vulnerable populations. There are over four thousand beds for the homeless and last night they were at capacity, coincidentally, just as the deep free set in the city. So Tom skilling also at WGN TV. I mean, what are you I presume people are just being advised not to go outdoors at all. That's exactly right and further we're advising folks, not dry at drive in open areas because of this ground blizzard risk. Yeah. This is really brutal. I went outside just video the lake. I'm telling you my skin froze. And in literally a few seconds out there this brutal cold and very very dangerous. And you know, it's interesting when you look at this air mass relative to the rest of the planet. We are probably the coldest spot on earth in terms of being below our normal here. There's no other spot that's more below its normal temperature. There's another logo colder over eastern Siberia. So that area and here in the mid west are the coldest areas on the planet, and the interesting thing is much of the rest of the planet is above normal terms of temperature. So this is a fairly compact. Area, but it's a broad area. And there are some real issues with this. Well, Tom skilling chief meteorologist at WGN TV in Chicago. He's been forecasting the weather for forty years, Tom. Thank you so much. Stay safe. Okay. Thank your mic. Nice to to you. All right. Well, let's actually go to some calls here. So we got listeners across the midwest are experiencing this go to to Shaw who's calling from Dayton, Ohio to shar. How cold is it where you are. Hello. And just want to make a quick point to the rest of my brothers and sisters in the mid west to stay warm in Dayton, Ohio, right now, according to my phone, it is negative twenty seven degrees outside all of the schools, all the universities in my area and all the public schools in the state of Ohio are closed, but I want to bring attention to the last polar vortex came through in twenty fourteen. The Ohio State University was when I was attending there in twenty fourteen. It was not closed and temperature's were like negative thirty five and the president of our university was on a cruise and Florida making students walked the class and the emergency management, folks. We're sending out tweet saying, hey, there's chocolate in the union. You just got to walk to right to get to it. So I'd say currently by the numbers, it's not as cold. And I ran my own little experiment this morning. I put out a couple of water to see how quickly it would freeze and in twenty. Fourteen through a bottle of water outside in a pros instantly. This time around the bottle of water that throughout side frozen about five minutes. So I mean, it's still cold. But it's not as cold as it was last, and it's not as bad as Chicago restore well to Charlotte. Thank you for your call and for your warning there to to students to to stay indoors much appreciated. I mean since two shar mentioned the past Voeller polar vortex a couple years ago. Let's turn to an expert on this climate phenomenon. Joining us now from Boulder Colorado is Amy Butler. She's a research scientist at the university of Colorado's cooperative institute for research in environmental sciences. She works at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration where she researches climate variability, Amy Butler, welcome to the program. Hi magna. I'm so glad to be here. Okay. So first of all, can you just give us a quick explainer about what the polar vortex is? And how it brings such profound cold down from northern latitudes. Sure the polar vortex is a regular feature of our wintertime atmospheric circulation it forms every year. So there's nothing unusual about it. It describes the winds that flow west to east around the polar cap in the stratosphere. Now, the stratosphere is a region six to thirty miles above the surface. And this polar vortex can influence the winds and weather patterns closer to the surface. It actually can cause the Jetstream to weaken and become wavier and that allows these cold air to be transported from the Arctic down into the middle attitudes. Okay. So the polar vortex influences the jet stream, I had been I guess I was wrong in thinking that it was the other way around that was changes in the debt Streep. We're allowing the cold air to come down south. Yeah. Well, it's an a coupling. So the troposphere weather can actually influence the polar vortex first, and then that can influence us later. But in general what's happened in? This case is that we had this polar vortex in the stratosphere, and it split apart at the beginning of January and this happens pretty regularly about once every other year. And when that happens it can essentially allow colder outbreaks at the surface to occur up to two months later. So it gives us an idea of when we're going to see these cold extremes. Okay. But maybe this is just sort of the limited view of individual human experience. It does seem as if we're we're seeing them more often at lower latitudes than perhaps we were before. I mean, you're saying that it's a it's a normal regular phenomenon. But you know, it's just been what three or four. Between between these giant polar vortex. That are that are really having an impact on tens of millions of people. Right. So what I want to make clear is that first of all there's really two features that I'm describing here one is in the stratosphere and that vortex is happens every year in it. It's always there. But then there's a tropospheric for text that is affected. And that has we've been seeing more people aware of these cold air events at the surface. Okay. So we're going to talk more. We'll let you talk tells more about why we come back from a quick break. That's Amy Butler. She's a research scientist at the university of Colorado's cooperative institute for research in environmental sciences. She's an expert on climate phenomenon such as the polar vortex, and we want to hear from you, are you enduring and suffering through these bone chilling record. Breaking cold temperatures across much of the midwest. This is on point. This is on point. I'm Meghna Chakrabarti. We're talking about the polar vortex, which is blanketing the midwest in record breaking cold temperatures, the coldest seen in a generation in some places with wind chill. We're seeing temperatures perhaps forecast to be mine around minus sixty minus sixty and we want to know if you're experiencing it and how you're enduring it. And if you feel if your town your city your region is ready for these cold temperatures here is a Michigan native who posted a YouTube video about her experience trying to brave the bitter cold wind. This is oppressive this circle boy that first shock of that cold that burns your face. And it hurts when you breathe you just can't you can't get used to that. So that's a Michigan native on a YouTube video here officials, of course, are are strongly encouraging people not to go outside if they if they can do anything to to to provide. That because the it's so cold we're seeing warnings of potential instant frostbite Sheila Collins a board. Join from Michigan sending us. This message on Facebook saying the governor has declared a state of emergency schools were closed including the university of Michigan and warming centers are open Cindy storm from Oakland. Wisconsin says it's going to be minus twenty seven tonight stock up on food and beverages and stay indoors and on our website on point radio dot org. Forecast is saying staying safe in these conditions goes beyond the moment wants things warm up bridges will need to be checked to ensure their structures are still able to handle what they were built for roads will weaken and potholes will quickly form. So the effect on critical infrastructure important point there as well. And Butler joins us today. She's a research scientists at the university of Colorado's cooperative institute for research in environmental sciences, an Amy Butler before the break, you were talking about sort of the differences between the polar vortices. Different levels of the of the atmosphere. Hope I got that close to being right? Yes. Or not you can tell if. That's okay. No. That's exactly right. So the point is that scientists in general have been referring to the polar vortex and the stratosphere, but because they caused these colder outbreaks in the troposphere the term polar vortex has been somewhat adopted to explain this cold weather outbreak. But it's really just a part of our weather system that we get sometimes we get these cold extremes due to these lobes of the jet stream that get separated from the main flow, and and bring down these very very cold air. Okay. So here's the here's the key question. Then. How related is the the phenomenon that we're experiencing now how related it is it to climate change. Yeah. So what's been interesting is that there is some agreement that over the past thirty years or so the polar vortex in the stratosphere has weakened somewhat. However, what's less clear is whether that's been caused by climate change in particular sea ice loss, or whether it's just some slogger term variability and one of the reasons that we wonder whether it's really forced by by increased greenhouse gases is because the climate models running into the future. Do not see significant or agreed upon changes in these cold air outbreaks occurring more often. In fact, they overwhelmingly see that will experience fewer and fewer colder outbreaks into the future. Fewer and fewer. Okay. Yes. Can you help explain that to be perfectly honest? I feel like I'm not quite caught up with you on on. Why that might be? So could you explain that? Yeah. So in general, the response to when you put more CO two into the atmosphere, you're going to warm the atmosphere, and that's going to be true in all seasons. And in winter as well. And what some people have proposed is that maybe because you're also melting sea ice that can weaken the Jetstream, and you get some more of these cold air outbreaks, but whether the models just don't have these processes modeled correctly, or whether this really isn't going to be a big influence. We generally don't see any weakening of the of that vortex in these climate models. Okay. 'cause like it's what I'm saying. What I'm saying is as you almost certainly know every time we have one of these extreme cold weather events of there are people out there, including the president of the United States who say, you know, like global warming or climate change. What gives? How can we have these extreme cold of events if we also have climate change? But but are you saying that there is some kind of relationship between the two? I'm saying it's possible. It's an interesting idea. I think it's a area of science where there's not a lot of consensus right now. In terms of what will happen in the future in with climate change in colder outbreaks in general. I think there's going to be less cold extremes than there are, but whether it's noisy, and so you're still going to have these very cold extremes occur on occasion. It's just going to be fewer and fewer of them interesting. All right. Well, let's go back to our callers. We are talking about the polar vortex and the record breaking cold temperatures that much of the midwest is experiencing today. And we want to hear from you about how you're handling it how you're experiencing it. What your concerns are? Maybe are you enjoying it? I I don't know. Let's go to Chris who's calling from Adams Wisconsin, Chris you're on the air. It's minus fifty with the wind chill. Just everybody knows. We actually had a little burst of this kind of weather five years ago, and I was living out on a farm, and we had a young Lama one would think a llama would be safe from this kind of stuff that had a shelter, but it froze to death overnight outside. So I was like to recommend everybody and remind them to not leave your pets outside and help take care of the wildlife have been feeding the birds furiously I have a bowl of cat food out in my garage, which has the door crack for the feral cats in the neighborhood, and you can also help feed the wildlife, I have a friend in Michigan that has wild turkeys. And she's been feeding them the you're gonna have a problem because we've got eighteen inches of snow on the ground and they're not going to be able to afford. So if you've got bills straw, throw it out for the deer and just try and be aware that all the creatures on the planet are having a hard time with. Us not just us. And what I did is. I'm a gourmet cook. So I went out and bought about two hundred dollars worth of wonderful, fabulous food, and I haven't hunkered down and cooking and having a fabulous time. So Well, Chris thank you so much for your call. And I appreciate your your positive outlook on this. And your great advice. Thank you, Chris. Let's go to Jim was calling from Springfield, Illinois. Jim you're on the air. Oh, they're mugging right weather. We're having isn't it? Hanging in there. Jim. Good time. I sit in my truck last night. I am I'm from Chicago. I'm down here. And he's not spend money on motels. In fact, I like, Chris I wanna go visiting in the hunkered down e gourmet food too. But I went through there. The the negative twenty seven degrees willnot back in eighty five years, and I'm a scout leader from way back and I taught inter camping survival skills. Eating a lot of camping and stuff like that. So most important thing I could say to anybody is layers and make sure you keep all experienced getting covered. I mean, if I really gloves like last night if something out of the back truck, they'd get a pickup truck, and I got the bed headed of the gate up and be having one glove on anything ten seconds. I could see the king. They say, we gotta stay hydrate. You gotta wear layers and just they want to truck five minutes every hour and mean good enough. But I was going to will leap of people had a speech that January twenty eighty five and it closed the mountain. Women up in this country. And and I had depends on long under a snowmobile in coat and key, hats and gloves mittens over those. And I walked around up on the hill, like eight o'clock at night night. They getting divided or stitches there like that. Yeah. It is. You just gotta with j you know, there's this is the people aren't prepared. Don't know they'll do people. You gotta worry about. Declare a state of emergency here too. So you know, that's all these state. I think Wisconsin and Illinois and Michigan. That's right. Well, Jim hanging hanging there. And I really appreciate again, your vice about trying to be positive out this enjoy it. But be smart as well. And I'm hoping you're not going to sleep in your truck again. So Jim thank you so much for your call Amy Butler stand by here for just a second. I want to introduce into the conversation. Rick garnett. He's joining us from Notre Dame, Indiana. He's a professor at Notre Dame law school and a native Alaskan though in normally we talked to Rick about safe supreme court nominees. But today, we are going to talk with him about the weather, Ricker Garnett. Welcome back to on point. Thank you very much. So what's it like where you are? Right now. It's clear and pretty in very cold. We're we're told it's about forty five below with the wind chill about twenty below air temperature. It's quiet and nobody's on the streets. We were told to stay off. And really only the second time. I can remember in my twenty years at the university. Even the university of Notre Dame shut down. So the the vortex got the better of the fighting Irish it looks like, and so I mean, as we mentioned since you're a native Alaskan how does what you're experiencing there in Indiana. Now compared to what you grew up with. Yeah. You don't childhood memories. I actually I looked it up to try to confirm the coldest that I remember as a kid, and I think it was thirty five below. So this is this is not quite getting to there. But, you know, one of the things you do learn in Alaska is that frostbite no joke, and and the layers work, and so I've been trying to tell that to my friends, and my children just to be sure. And take this kind of thing pretty seriously. It's the risk is people outside and the first thirty seconds or so they feel like it's no big deal. And they don't realize that exposed skin gets bit really quickly with these kind of temperatures. Yeah. So I mean, do you think that that people have been adequately prepared this time around? I think you know, the the local businesses in the university and the city are doing all they can to try to to educate people and keep them informed. There's at some point you can't stop people from doing silly things like going outside and their jammies. And throwing boiling water to watch it turned into crystals. But hopefully, the the students know that the fact that schools canceled doesn't mean they should party in the snow, and and hopefully people are are staying warm. I know the city's done a good job of trying to set up warming centers for for people who don't have any place to go. So I think we're pretty well prepared this has happened before. But I it's it's definitely serious business. We I've got a I've got to hairdryers going to try to unfreeze some pipes in the basement. Hopefully that'll work is to you're going to be enough. We'll see. Okay. Well, regarded best of luck to you is a professor at Notre Dame law school China. Unfreeze his pipes in the basement. Today's Notre Dame is closed down. Thanks so much for being with us. And good luck. Rick it Amy Butler. Let me turn back to you is there. I mean, we we were talking to Tom skilling the meteorologist at WGN in Chicago earlier about how long this polar vortex may last. And he said, you know, not that long that later this week, they expect a forty to sixty degrees. Swing to warmer temperatures is that normal for polar vortex like this because they can last quite a long time. Yes. So what's happening is that for the past month, a lobe of the polar vortex has been sitting over eastern, Canada, and that sort of pushed this cold air south over the middle of the United States. But starting this weekend that Loeb is sort of re joining with the other low that's currently over more Siberia. And so they're coming together, the Texas re strengthening and so the east coast will start to warm up a bit. But the cold is expected to at least have a chance of occurring all through February. Okay. Well, let's hear for more from people who are living. This right now area is joining us from is calling from Omaha Nebraska, you're on the air. Hello. I just you had questioned whether or not anybody was actually enjoying it. And while I don't mean to make light of the danger that it is a woman of a certain age approaching fifty. There are many moments throughout the day that I'm actually grateful to be able to step outside PU off. Oh, you know, what I you made me left their area to thank you. So so much because I, you know, I have to really I really really appreciate the positive attitude that people are taking even as we all acknowledge that these are dangerously cold temperatures. But Aaron thank you so much. Let's go to Richard who's calling from superior Wisconsin, Richard you're on the air. Yeah. Hi, I'm out using my car is a bird blind. And I'm actually watching a snowy all punch right now. And when it plunges to the snow I pop out of the car and take a few photographs, and how long have you able to stay out of the car, Richard? Oh, probably not much more than ten minutes. I've got lots of layers on. I'm, you know, live up here in the Northland. So I'm used to this cold but saw something even crazier yesterday. When it was just a little bit cooler. There's this race called the Arrowhead one thirty five that goes from international falls, Minnesota to lake for million, which is near easily and people bike hike ski a hundred and thirty five miles and they're still out there today take they have a limit of sixty hours. I watched that yesterday. Wow. Okay. So I mean, I they are hardier folk than I am. But I'm not that doesn't strike me as being terribly smart, though. I mean, like we're hearing about these temperatures like what if you're the could cost cause instant frostbite, you wouldn't even know that your you'd been hurt. They have every of skin covered up have very specialized equipment. And but let's just put it this way when they come into a checkpoint. They look like frosty the snowman. Wow. Well toughness there for sure Richard. Thank you so much for your call. Let's take one more here. Let's go to David who's calling from Goldsboro North Carolina. David you're on the air. Hi, I have a friend who's traveling to Minneapolis Saint Paul to visit his his son and his son's girlfriend on Thursday. And I'm wondering what are the chances? They may close the airport is it going to be really bad still on Thursday, or you know, how bad is it going to be for him? Well, David thank you so much for your call Amy Butler. Let me just turn back to you. Do we have a sense that that the the depth of this cold is gonna last all the way till tomorrow or perhaps even Friday? Well, I got to urologists. Give any given forecasts. But yeah, it might it's only supposed to last maybe forty eight hours. So it should be moving on pretty soon here. But I would say that this is just for me as a lay person that whenever weather interrupts travel, even if it's just for day, you probably ought to presume that there will be knock on affects from that interruption for a couple of days. So that's all the advice that I have to give to people, but just we have about forty five seconds left here in this segment. And when we come back, we're going to talk about national parks and the government shutdown, but I just wanted to ask you quickly sort of as an aside. I mean, you also work for Noah the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. You know in about thirty seconds. You want to talk about how did the government shutdown affect your research and the work that Noah's doing? Well, so I'm a I'm a cooperative institute employees. So I was still getting paid and studying this phenomenon, but a lot of my data is at stored at Noah, so that certainly impacted my ability to address the phenomenon, but now we're back, and we're at work, and we're going to be looking into this carefully. Roy we'll Amy Butler research scientists at the university of Colorado's cooperative institute for research in environmental sciences. And as I said, she also works at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration where she studies climate variability of things like the polar vortex. Thank you so much for joining us today me. Thank you. And folks, if you're experiencing these truly sub sub sub zero temperatures just be smart and safe when we come back. We'll talk about the government shutdown and national parks. This is on point. This is on point a magnitude Roberti, America's national parks are an unrivalled gem. But the already fragile ecosystems were made even more vulnerable during the historic government shutdown. You might have already heard about the trash and the overflowing toilets, but the parks also lost critical income as well. And some observers are saying that the damage could be even worse than that. For example, at California's Joshua tree national park, damaged trees may take more than three hundred years to recover. So let's talk about what happened to the national parks during the shutdown and joining us I from Joshua tree. California is David Smith the superintendent for Joshua tree national park, David Smith. Thanks for joining us today. Good afternoon magma. Thanks so much for having me. Well, also with us from Washington is John Gardner, the senior director of budget and appropriations at the national parks conservation association. John gardner. Welcome to you who am I gonna thank you. And folks, we want to hear from you. Did you visit? A national park during the government shutdown. What did you see? What's your reaction to this idea that it could take some of the parks centuries to recover David Smith? Let me start with you for a couple of minutes here because you're the superintendent address, which we national park tell us. I mean, there's been a lot of coverage for the past day about the damage done there. But specifically what have you seen in terms of the condition of the park? Magna? It could have been a lot worse. I you know, we had I would say hundreds of people from the local community from Los Angeles from San Diego that we're coming up to volunteer to take care of the park. So they were the the stewards that, you know, cleaned out the toilets and put into the paper, and they advise people when they saw them doing things typically aren't allowed like having dogs off leash and driving off road just to not do things like that. So if not for the volunteers that we had in the local community, I think it would be much worse. We began seeing damage inside the park, probably, you know, few days into the shutdown, and we're able to bring back a number of our park scientists and Rangers to help documented and start mitigating some of the damage even during the shutdown, but I just got the final totals in yesterday from some of our scientists we had about twenty four miles of of OH VU you so. Off road vehicle use inside the park in a lot of it and wilderness areas as well. So that you know, for me is one of the biggest long-term damages to the park with the the creation of new roads. And the folks driving across the desert landscape. Luckily, because we were able to bring back some of our our trail crew and science staff we were out there. Raking those tracks doing something that we call vertical revegitate where we we take dead plant matter, and we kind of block off trail. So folks, don't see it. And they're not apt to drive down those roads again across the desert, and luckily, we had a big big rainstorm that happened just after Christmas, and so having wet soil and raking it out, you know, helps that that micro crust that that desert crust that helps kinda hold down the desert landscape, it helps it to rebuild much more rapidly. So that hopefully might my goal is that, you know, in a in a few months or a few years, you're not gonna see a lot. Of those those trails. We haven't gone to all of them yet. And I was out in the park yesterday with staff looking at some of the damage in some of these trails go on for miles into the desert, and we've just not been able to send folks out there to begin raking them out. So David Smith Kansas dumping here for a second because you keep saying trails, but to be clear these are tracks that weren't there before right that these are these are newly created tracks by vehicles that actually aren't allowed to drive where you see the tracks. Yeah. Correct. I didn't mean to imply that these were were trails or roads there, they become roads. The more people that go down these these sections of the desert, you know, we this this area of California was was used for desert training during World War Two. And you know, we still see some of those tracks from the nineteen forties down in the southern portion of the park because you know, they didn't go back and mitigate the damage, but luckily, like I said we were able to bring back a lot of our crews to do that. We've also been working a lot on legal campsites folks were. You know, they when they drove out into the desert, they would create their own campsite. So our crews went out there. You know, people created fire pits. They they, you know, cut down acacias, you know, junipers and things like that for for firewood. So we're we've been able to clean up most of those those campsites to make them look as if they're pristine once again, but you know, if you, you know, you cut down to juniper that's that takes two three hundred years for that plant to reach maturity, and we've we had we have three or four incidents of people damaging or destroying Joshua trees. Those those trees grow, you know, for two three hundred years before they die. I I don't want to imply that you know, there are large swaths of Joshua tree forests that have been cut down. It was truly just exceptional spots where you know, where they they were damaged. It's not it's not all over the place. And hopefully, you know, my goal today is you know, if you are able to make it out to California and visit the park it's gonna. Look it's gonna look pretty pristine like you'd expect your park Daloa. Okay. Well, that's good news. Then John Gardner. I'm gonna come to you in a second. But David Smith the superintendent at Joshua tree national park when one more question here for you. At least for now the park is what almost eight hundred thousand acres right at and so during normal operations is I presume it's adequately staffed to be sure to keep sort of visitors behavior in check could it just it seems to me that like what happened that that all of a sudden simply because you know, because of the government shutdown that a park is vast as Joshua tree national park. We we saw some some bad behavior. 'cause I can't imagine that there's a ranger, of course, on every square square mile of the park at all times. Anyway, oh, who I are visitors are tremendously wonderful stored of the landscape, generally, we don't we don't typically have problems like this. But I'm I was sitting around with some of my staff. Yesterday trying to figure out how we can deal with this in the teacher. And I think part of the problem was, you know, we we didn't have our visitor centers open. You know, that's where we do our initial education and interpretation, you know, most of our visitors come from, you know, outside this area. They come from Europe. They come from back east. They're not used to just how fragile the desert can be. So we really we educations one of the main things, we do, you know, our entrance stations weren't staffed. So you didn't have someone to contact you to remind you. Hey, you know, stay on the roads when you're here. Hey, you have a dog, please. Keep your dog on a leash inside of a national park where there's Bighorn sheep and Bob cats amount lines and things like that. So by not having those staff operating in the visitor centers by not having our entrance station staffed by not having you know, the the twenty guys and gals who work maintenance inside the park, you know, they're they're out there in the campgrounds everyday talking to people are trail crew, you know, they're building trails, but they're talking to people every day by removing our entire workforce from the park during that time. Time. There was there was no more education than terp relation going on yet. There are a few bad apples that showed up, and you know, luckily, we had enough Rangers on duty during the shutdown. We were able to issue a fair number of citations with mandatory appearances. So, you know, folks, they were educated that way, they're educated through the legal system. You know, not take your motorcycle and go cross country. But that's that's kinda my my summation. Right. Well, David Smith samba here for a second John Gardner, you've been very patient. Thank you for that. Let me just turn to you here as senior director of budget and appropriations at the national parks conservation association. Give us the big picture here. I mean, what do you think the long term effects of the the historic government shutdown are going to be on parts like Joshua tree? Sure. Well, we're concerned that Joshua tree is just one among a number of parks that have sustained damage some of which could last for a really long time in particular with situations where cultural sites have been vandalized where there are incidents of looting that the. Park service likely still doesn't know about as they go out. And do these damage assessments, certainly there are a lot of businesses that are suffering and other impacts that are deep concern during any shutdown scenario, but one of our concerns that really alarms us is that the administration is really really abdicated its authority to look out for the preservation of these places for current and future generations by creating a scenario that was predictable leaving resources at risk as David described. But in in many other parks as well. And then adding insult to injury by prolonging that situation by instructing parks to use fee revenue that is critically needed for addressing deferred maintenance. There's now an eleven point six billion dollar deferred maintenance in our national parks. Those dollars are critically needed for repairing visitors centers and trails and a lot of other projects that are important to visit. And resource protection. And they were instructed to vacate those accounts in order to prolong this damaging situation right over the coming days, superintendents and other park staff are going to be really assessing and finding other situations where there have been impacts to wildlife behaviour vandalism. Not just trash and waste that that that things that people see, but a lot of other damage that that is often invisible to visitors David Smith is superintendent Ajaj between national park. Let me ask you how how much money did you have to defer from entrance fees that I mean that you had already collected before the shutdown to help, you know, the those that maintenance that the John Gardner was talking about what make this kind of two issues during the shutdown. We we were unable to collect fees for the park. And we we kind of plan our budget out, you know, for the next year to deal with his prejudice, those projects that John was mentioning the deferred maintenance projects and. Infrastructure projects that you know, serve the visitor. So I I just got the tally from our fee office. We had expected to bring in a little bit over a million dollars. You know during that that time period, it's Christmas as a really busy time at the park here in southern California because it's so nice. So that's that's a million dollars that we didn't collect we're gonna have to really look at our our fund for the next for the next eight months and decide you know, what projects are we going to eliminate this year? And we know which ones can we go forward with the the the secretary gave us permission about, you know, a couple of weeks into the shutdown to go ahead and use some of our fun sources that we already have and use those to pay the staff that we were bringing back. We're able to bring back initially about sixty people to deal with the campgrounds. We were having a a health and safety issue because the the sewage was at the top of the toilets, and and things along that nature had to deal with that immediately. So I brought back the the whole maintenance division. You know to work on that. And they were all paid for out of out of our flurry a- are FIA count to to deal with that. We're still crunching the numbers. But I I'm guessing probably about two to three hundred thousand dollars we use to cover those wages during that time period. Okay. Well, let's go take a quick call here. Let's go to Spencer who's calling from New Orleans Spencer. You're on the air. Hi, I just wanted to say I had driven to Joshua tree about twelve days ago from New Zealand's, and we did get to go in and have a great time. There was a ranger there at the at the front gate hen maps, just like normal didn't take any fees or anything like that. But wanted to thank you to all the Rangers that are out there, keeping keeping maintenance of the parks and take care taking careful, we'll spend thank you for your call. And let's go to Tim who's calling from Detroit. Michigan Tim, you're on the air. Hi, I just wanna say, and certainly it's clear the damage the have been done to the national parks. But when you look at this entire government system is really like an ecosystem. And if some if something is missing out of that ecosystem people suffer you may not be able to see it. But it affects you down the line. And so I think not just the the park system, but all the people that miss money during this period. It's going gonna take them in way that we don't see. And I think it makes us appreciate the government more what's going on. Well, Tim, thank you for your call John Gardner. Let me turn back to you. Because we've got another comment. That's come in here on social media, Nina Brin says this is on the users not on the shutdown. Maybe we Americans lack of culture of the outdoors. We shouldn't need anyone there to tell us not to leave trash or feces lying around. What do you think? Well, here's the thing you really, they're obviously some bad actors, David outlined. People who have clearly done a purposeful damage, and that's extremely unfortunate near responsible behaviour. But they're also a lot of visitors who cause unintended damage where they are not educated by the park service staff that are needed to engage in the kinds of behaviors that ensure not just their own safety, but that of wildlife and the integrity of park resources, and some people who may know, they're doing things that they're not allowed to do. But don't realize the extent of the damage that's causing thrill situation is not so much pointing the finger at users which you know, it's it's it's really a matter of the an an approach to managing our national parks with only thirteen percent of the park service staff out there, you need those people those uniformed Rangers who are out there. Educating people ensuring that park resources are protected you just you can't operate our national parks with such small. Staffing level. We'll David Smith. You know, we have what maybe two and a half weeks before there's the possibility hopefully, it won't happen. But possibility of another government shutdown or are you folks at Joshua tree or the Rangers. They're trying to prepare for that possibility. Well, they're they're professionals. You know, they they they came to the National Park Service because they they love public service, and they love taking care of national parks. So they're doing everything they can right now to mitigate the damage that occurred during the shutdown and to educate the public and reaching out to our partners to help out as much as possible. If there if there were to be another shutdown or something like that are are park association that you know, they volunteered to operate. Our visitor centers, you know, during the shutdown, and, you know, just just having those those exhibits they're having them giving out safety warnings and things like that. That would be you know, that that's a godsend to have folks to be able to do things like that the businesses and the local community. I'm sure they are ready to jump to it again and start helping us with with toilets and things like that. I we're really trying to message to the public right now. Just how fragile the desert ecosystem is and just how important it is. For folks to stay on the road. You know? If there's a shutdown, you know, pick up your garbage, you know, don't don't don't expect that someone's going to be there to pick it up to use some of the common sense that to me is I know 'cause I've been working for the park service for almost thirty years. You know, you you don't run your dog, you know, through wildland his lots of wildlife, you don't operate a drone or it's going to harass. You know birds that are up there. We just have to get those messages out. Well, you know, David if I may say maybe based in Boston now, but I grew up on the west coast, and I'm going to shamefully admit to the nation that I have never been to Joshua tree national park. It's an oversight that I have to fix. So I'm gonna come out there soon sometime. Hopefully, you were you were my personal guests I will time, and I would love to show you the and just how magical and special Joshua the desert. There is absolutely as I said at the beginning of the conversation, part of our national parks system. Which is a gem a true, Jim that the United States has really distinguishes it from so much else in the rest of the world's David Smith superintendent at Joshua tree national park. Thank you so much for joining us today. My pleasure. You have a great day and John guard. Our senior director of budget and appropriations at the national parks and conservation association with us from Washington. John gardner. Thank you as well. Thank you, again, magnum Roberta this is on point.

What are we doing where am I mean we honestly just got one answer? How many episodes will it take for excited? DMZ podcast and the answer was we don't know yet because it has happened Golly you guys really I like to cut your GYP. anyways we are back. For another amazing episode the Fabled Volleyball Guest and joining me on my left is that we ended last week turning play by Lonnie. Okay I see I made a mistake yet. Let's get to it mine. Employer dead due regard dead. Aden's about to die like monsters. You but to me yeah. You're you're about to. You're literally climbing down a ladder into to my moonbeam. That's where you put your many motor skewed over five feet area. I'm blocked McCain story. Then I couldn't see the invisible Moonbeam I've just remembered some real. I think exciting moments laughing last week you took down a very fearsome deadly creature and maybe not yearly more and I think that counts most most. DNC encounters is the expanse for killing that much. If you experience you pretty much finished it sounds I saw Amir for answers. Just get next where you want to kill him care about this story care about my character shoot things so you're kind of the battle. Hayes is coming down you know that sort of focus that tunnel tunnel vision. You get in and I'm kind of in the back room you all. You got to take in back here is of course the Durbar that you put down yourselves. Sadly they had families. Yeah each other we killed all but what is what do you do like you the carnage is kind of calming down. What is going on? You've got a tied up during our in the dressing room. They're behind you I WANNA drop Moonbeam. I got so that I can move and my friends can move without hurting us and then I wanna go to the front. In case there are still survivors. I was told there's twelve to eighteen bodies lying piled up in the other room so Alani I mean I only have three lay on hands left. Luckily we didn't have to use awesome. We definitely thought we weren't gonNA make a fight but I'd like to go into the theater and I haven't seen it yet so Walk through the door through the rooms. Get on stage. What do I see out in the crowd? Hopefully not crowd. You don't see a crowd you do see as you enter into the stage. Some of the actors or laying there unconscious and then you see on the front row that The famous wrong kwan is is there hey I wanna run to him I okay. Is He unconscious or is he dead. I WANNA do like a medicine do nine. You do see some like haggard breathing. Some some tired just slow chest falls but he is bleeding profusely. I wanted to lean down. And he'll him up and say it's GonNa be Okay Ron Kwan. We we took care of the we took care of the monsters and they give them a point US only on hands whoops on that. Does that like stabilize them he stabilize yeah. All right. Help is on the way I'm going to try and fix up your other actors actors and then we're going to figure out a way out of here and then yeah I'll just keep going around and doing whatever medicine checks I need. I can only heal madison checks. I guess in that can stabilize them. Yeah yeah if I do a better one than a nine but I do have two more lay on hand so I can stabilize to people fail. Okay so what however many rolls you're gonNA make or whatever. Just give me a D twenty roll. I'll be of an odd also. We like going around kind of like helping. Yeah Aidan is going also head out like down the ladder and I think probably on the same time as menards exiting probably both both going out meaning fourteen. On that role you are able to stabilize three out of every four but there seems to be one or two you come to the doesn't stable. Do I do a stable. They're already dead or I could use my two points. Atlanta hands to fix there are thirty. Two okay okay. So I'll just keep my to lay on hands. Yeah okay well cool. I mean that's how to take three out of four of them up without everybody else here. It goes so we only lost what he's thinking like five people total if Corp for okay we we killed. We killed more of them and I'm definitely happy with that. I'm not happy. Four of them died. But I'm happy that fifteen of them him. Yeah I thought they were all of them with all going. Yeah I thought they were all going to be dead. So that's your took care of it really quick so I guess that helped three three rounds amount of combat we took care of it is just going to keep an eye out. Because he knows he didn't take down the mind for everybody does no. It didn't see it as far as you make another recession check. Because I think you just told me last on like there was no trace of him because I think I made one. He's just going acre was left on the right for air cousteau away. Yeah I remember that Just keeping an eye out watching our backs ax looking around with an air already really uneasy. As soon as I'm done checking the I know it probably took ten minutes or so to check them And make sure they're all good and kind of get like almost like a triage impromptu trauma center Luc getting them where they can And of course moving the dead people away the living people but I WANNA go right back to that Just the Dwarf Narciso Norsk knows go. I WANNA go back to him and just Kinda grab him visibly upset picking up and dragging him back into the other. He's unconscious right now. I'M GONNA lean that way. He stable because I just punched but leave him unconscious because yes we killed most of them but he's the only one left alive to pay for four deaths and he needs to pay. He will pay. He will not going to jump off a ladder for. This'll give me another ladder. We'll see two points. Tames it. All that ladder is I have the power to make it as Aidan around the different Derg or make sure they didn't like because he assumes they probably stole from the people that they just beat up and tried to slaughter so he's going to go through and try to gather any stolen items and just Kinda put him an appeal Manila's date if anything because he thinks that they stole of being nice. We we kill all the people that killed all the people in just take their stuff even after reviewing people. That's my grandmother's Nicholas. Well from the dead guy over there so I lost two hundred dollars here half half forty two hundred dollars and found earlier. what you find around rooting for all all their stuff of the door guards belongings You find a nice while with the red liquid in it than you are very familiar with emotional feeling reasonably with that or so somebody and you also find a very peculiar bag similar into a bag. You recently got got the the face on it the Smiley face on it it is just GonNa. It's not a blue velvet bag. This time I mean in my head Kennedy is development aid and think that belongs to all of the eight and needs to think whatever aid in these because a long hair along with that you find five hundred copper and ten gold pieces in the world of dungeons agents in a bag of holding me someone something that just just anybody could have or is it something like for adventure or extremely wealthy. People don't know how much and why you think about that. I WANNA check one of the dead bodies of the people like the good citizens citizens. Yeah if we're we're questioning whether they robbed them or not we can check if they don't have they still have their valuables that we know that these are okay to keep a lot of who they don't have anything on them personally and you're not you're drawn the conclusion either. They stole it from or like their stuff is put away in like a safe locker or something there. Sure because they're actors they're they're they're not and that's okay then that's fine then I. I'm of the assumption that this is the monster stuff people I would because you're right actors. Don't go onstage. With their cell phones. In their pocket Bernard show a bird in his pocket to do it. Yeah no it. Wasn't that one that was on the roof roof. Whenever Andy Office was what was the name of the twenty nine? I Sweeney Todd and then Michael dropped that bottle of wine and it's slowly in front of the states yes you uh and the balloons went up in pop the light and Aaron brought CC and she was crying in the back and it was a mess. Honestly it was a big mets chill always wanted to all right anyway. SARS yes so I'm okay with taking the stuff. It was the monster stuff you know. Yeah the bag gosh. I've never do that in. I guess the goal to you you said five hundred copper pieces. I've already down regular posters. I I think there's minor healing right. That's the duty for we have to post. I mean yeah there's supposed to healing which is forty four plus four so I want to go to Ron John On. Just call them Ron. I can call me whatever you like. The show must go on. Is it Ron on last name. No It's one word wrong Quan. I didn't know that I did not know that either. Call me. What if you liked to call me late to dinner you would have to perform rob? Were these people were there. Anybody left I wanNA make sure that. We're everybody's accounted for. What the happened? Who who all came in here? I think we've defeated everybody but I just want to make sure no one's hiding in the back to take you out when we leave and having so quickly I I don't I don't recall his as if they were these invisible beast which that's not true because then they can only use their ability once a day then the DM cheated cheated. They did just come out of nowhere. Though it was quite vicious I the they came from the doors. Every door was opened and they just rushed in started attacking my actors. I didn't know what to do. I tried to stop them. They just cracked me over the head. I'm so sorry we're not hearing Tom. You made it. You lost four of your actors. We lost four of our. Our people. Were supposed to protect. No Hey did rescue code. Thank you for your efforts. I'm feeling faint. Please let me sit all right. Then I walk away Bernard aiden. Yeah should we. Should we get out of here and go get the guard. Somebody want to stand watch over over the people two of us want us to what you know. We should probably go tell the guard. I'm not sure whether God does assume you're familiar. I can says one two blocks away. If I can get out of the door I can try to other door. I mean I'm not GonNa but like was y'all mind staying here with the people and I'll be right back. Of course all right then alanine would like to go to the front door not the side door that was barred. Is that one specimen e they wanted to see anything interesting on the way like you know and then two is the door barred. uh-huh if you if you try to win the wings Robart but if you make it to the front that's Then the door opens again and do you WANNA cautiously open it walkout because we know that one guy left and then if it was barred they might have people waiting outside so I'll all too cautiously open the door and look around when you open the door. You see we just glimpse to right of this different like like shorter person with a cow over the head and they kind of look up at you and make kyw contact. You see this face of shock and then you see them disappear okay and it's more important for me to go find on the garden. I'm not even going to worry about it but that's all it was out here then. I'm just going to book it. I'm just GONNA run to the guard you said. It was two blocks blocks away like three minutes there and back kind of thing so like I get there like a minute or so who I find. They're lucky lucky choice. Can I take a guess all. CC Chuck James It better not be carbon. They're in a whole different part. The city you find a few guards who are nondescript going on I just run to the guard tower and say guards. I need your help. Ron Quan was attacked. We've we've taken care of them.

You see them like start grabbing their gear and stuff ring a bell perfect shipped Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding. Being too seriously. Take you as you run out and you see some people scrambling in the The back end of the guardhouse and there they were doors. Well you accompany of five people rush weather you as you lead the way back there and we go back and tell excellent When you had in they begin assessing the situation so what what happened here and we're all together now now there's a group of thugs Durga? You may be aware of those creatures. They attacked at these actors this director. They were attacked and they were trying to find what we found. If you'd like to tell them about that Bernardin going to keep an eye on the door and make sure no one else tries to budge. We found we found and I kind of but in we found a great performance formats and they just attacked it. Probably be beneficial for us to talk to a captain. He's going to be the one that needs to hear our information I want. I don't want to like Budding in before he has a chance we don't we just don't know I don't know who's in what I know. The gangs control a lot of stuff. So I mean as as you're starting to thank you. saw the two clerics Rush Shannon start to administer aid okay yes of course it seems my pay great. Do my best to reach a captain. But in the meantime we will security perimeter security area and they could use this in securing the perimeter and island. Go and find a captain. Sure absolutely there might there deputized. So we're we're all we can do it. It's it's eight and deputized deputy just marrows and Bernard I made a mistake. I didn't line aren't yet. He exits briskly the and goes to scare captain. It is kind of hanging back near where the curtain would be. So he can I. I don't know if he can get an island to the dressing room but he also make sure that we're that door was barred earlier like no one's coming in from there like as soon as we head out to the main area to go like. Yeah exactly but he doesn't want to make an obvious that that's where the entrance is also clear uh-huh okay because he had no idea that to be discreet about your two options are to get up in the balcony her the catwalk area that you were in earlier or down the hallway.

I guess I'll go outside and do all right just scanning back and forth from the main area to the do you WanNa go out front with me and okay. So then Bernardo go out the front door I guess Bernard you WanNa take left. I'll take right. That sounds that sounds so we'll just stand there and watch excellent. You're even if you're you're to make the rounds. Do you remove the chains on some of the doors or you delete the change. I don't think we should. If these are the only entrances they can currently get in. Then that's the one who Bernard Neier at then you know for sure congressional neck and we just can't cover all those doors of Bernard Ireland parameter. I would probably keep him locked up.

He filled me in not in the particulars of how long it would take so. I am quite surprised. Able to be back soon. Well ladies overhand we once again fought the the mindfully who do regards little quite delivers the mind flare did get away again. We are not prepared for that. No Edema was prepared for that. They were quite troublesome those. They I- anytime. I've had encounters counters with my players. It's been quite the ordeal where they do. Try to escape if they feel. The encounters counters lost the fighters lost. So that does sound. They always come back well. We do have good news and it wasn't that the mind flair left. They always come back to decide that we left you there. Yeah Yeah exactly. He says always come back. And then the other shower very right. I said I'll have your head return. Have there is good. News is not just bad news and I take the bag of holding and I start to just I. I reach my hand because I know stuff doesn't just fall out of you but then I started pulling gold out. We found never ember stash. Oh true this is found found dead goal lady. Silver City will be so grateful. Thank you thank you. And how much were you able to. We were able to get Bernard Bernard how much I think it was. Maybe like twenty five thousand twenty five thousand. I think that sounds about all right but you said the whole. It appears that the it is under watch by Mr Kling Hammer surprisingly dragon lady so heck and and he said he knew you. His name was brought Clinton. I don't know that name no dragon by. I don't remember the dry doc links with that. He gave us the dragons he did not. I think Amos told us off air after recording but I did not write it down. He said he had spoken to you on many occasions than you knew he was here. A Gold Dragon. I dare not along you but they are more than a few dragons in the city. But I know of Hughley unaware of it's something that just terrified I understand. It's not something that we want to become a knowledge as your first reaction can seize dragons live here peacefully for thousands of years Bernard. What was that thing? He had ladies he did. He was in possession of this will staff that I've learned about in school. Let's see region notes star. Start describing it you know it had the dragons come up and they twisted at the top and the staff here on Yes yes that's it. Yes most perplexing. I don't know of any dragons we didn't. We know where it was A. It was under the charge of Lord never before he left the city. He may have put it in chargeable in the standard of a dragon and I. It's not uncommon dragging. You can trust to have the staff. They are awful. It's not safe more hands than that. Certainly no one will capable but we did give him that stone of Galore because that would have been the safest place the stone law. Yes the in that I've only heard room is the stone that never locked the knowledge of the the Golden. Yes the stone. The stone led us to let us to ah the tomb. Under Ron Kwan's theater. We could never get our hands on the stone. You found it. We found that in. Where did we find that neck romances? This is all adding up. Their place was underneath Dandy mops founded in there there was there was a hidden dungeon underneath Dandy mops and we we found the stone of Galore and then our our other deputy marrow seat he talked to it in Galore. Lead us to the two men are to the into the dungeon and it was an old door of dungeon and that's where we found. There was gold in their traps. And there's there's hundreds of thousands of gold pieces down there. It had to be everything Lord never ever stole from the people and he left this dragon in charge over. The Dragon said that it belonged to us. Belong to the people would dispatch a team immediately to recover the rest of the gold album to bring ropes ropes. Ropes grappling hooks preferrable I'll give them the orders to be kitted out food dungeon maybe bring it up so whatever they they understand that they will handle it of course but this whole happened so suddenly is wonderful. Wonderful News city is forever in your debt. I'm just glad they got it before the before the gangs got it. I don't know what would have happened in Santa. Thur got it they were trying at the end.

I I see fit to reward you handsomely upon the return of all the money once we secured We will speak candidly about your report. It might mean my greatest reward lady. Silver hand was simply saving this money from the gangs. I do appreciate any rewards you would give but my the reward of doing my job. Is the only reward necessary. You're right that is reward enough itself doing the right thing. I can't say it better myself so I think that that covers this this. You're good you're good. We can speak more after okay. Yes yes we'll speak shortly. I would not say that I I would not say that. They're obviously I'm kidding. I just like to look at a Brendan's face whenever I tried to get.

What about what about one of them? One hundred grands was good. Good maybe get them a hundred grand. I think but we'll get a member of the canes uses. Sell for fundraisers the car marvel's yeah nine. Yeah crack this nut -rageous you do like nobody really bought bothell never mind. My favorite is recess. Fast-break those things Iraq reese's fast break sir. Okay how long? It's been since I've got a candy bar. I know I don't ever eat candy ever. They're not so long. The only ones I get it a little ones kids funds is one. Yeah like Three Musketeers. They don't like him because the snickers I left is the three. Musketeers is literally thing ever left which is three musketeers. You'RE AWESOME. I mean you're fine good movie that better than Milky Ways. Oh no I like the Milky Way because it has gotten comfortable is the newgen. Yeah but that's there's Oscar. Tears is the three musketeers as a new milky milkyway's has Karm and Oh yeah the only difference between all of these in build up to a snickers and nuts. Yeah I'm very proud of the main. Jerry know all this shit. Yeah Yeah one right. I had one of our mutual friends. The other day was sending me pictures after it must have been either Easter Christmas. Or something where you get a bunch of candy for your kids. I'm assuming eastern and he had a whole pile all the little miniature like the Hershey's and good bar. Yeah he had a whole pile of crackles and he's throwing them in the garbage he's like these are the worst in the world. Why would anybody all my love I long race krispies covered in chocolate? What's not to love apples? It's the original crunchy bar. All I ever wanted was a full-size crackle and I don't even know if you'll make him I don't. That's the crunchy bar. A crunch bars. Full-sized crack yeah but no crunch bars aren't as good as crackles. I agree with you but it's the same thing back up you take crunch bar and you break into little pieces and yet crackles crackles are like softer than incur crunch bars. The chocolate part of a crunchy bar is hard like a Hershey bar. You're up no there's no. There's a definite difference between the chocolate between them to a crack like like nothing like it was just. I could just shove them all on my mouth crunch bars after a while hurt my bite to them. They're no it didn't hurt my teeth like biting her. My teeth because of like the sugar content. I think there's something different about crunch bar that like made my teeth hurt freaking me out here. Why because you've dove way into deep now? Have you ever had those ones they? Shaquille O'Neal wasn't Shaquille O'Neal on a crunchy bar commercial for sure. I think I'm looking at you like you're crazy now. I'M GONNA look at them. I've never seen a commercial for a crackle bar. That's what I'm saying. Come on. They're not real. Yeah that's why they're bars but smaller I think is it a mid West think. No I think they're made by her. She know what I hate is like cursor usually gets the bill things with the crunch bars. No one's always left over at the very end. I dark dark chocolate tastes like just total dog. It's terrible bad. Yeah if you're down in the dark chocolate nights you got to walk away. You got a problem. Shaquille O'Neal was in crunch crunch bar commercials multiple. It doesn't know I like the mister good bars too though right but another one that I really liked that when I was younger and I don't seem anywhere and I can't remember the name of even but they're called Aero Bars. It was eighty. Ro and I don't remember what the last part of it was. Ero and there was like a chocolate bar but it had like air pockets like little air pockets in there and it was real. Nobody ate those. I never even heard of it. If I had my laptop I would crush you see all the knowledge of the Arrow bar enhance an all right. Well let's get to it. You guys missed all the fun but now we're going to start with some new fun so we we do I well. Jerry's got some news. I do have specific. We were going to do top ten nineties movies but we decided that for maybe next week. That will be next week okay. I'm nineties action. Hang on I'm looking at the bar. You're right it's and it is an area did chocolate bar manufactured by Nestle originally produced by Rowntree's aero bars were introduced in nineteen thirty five. There were gone. It's an entirely in England. Treat you know what also is a good one. The Zach Nut. People don't give enough credit to his egg nut bar the fucking nut bar like chocolate coconut bar. Yes so one of my favorite candies of all time is mountains. I love mounds bar. I love coconut or do like the almond joy. So here's the thing with the almond joy. So I love mounds. I would eat mounds like crazy but I prefer milk chocolate. I didn't like the almond involves so every almond joy. I would take the almonds off and I still ate them. I'd eat them after I ate the you know the actual chocolate and coconut because I liked that better and then I would just eat the almonds because I was told never to waste. So that's what I would do very counterproductive. It kind of yeah. It would but I just. I really enjoyed them. Do you know what bar is only kept in the consciousness of the public by dairy queen. Butterfinger you'd think so. That's my dad. Is My fucking Kryptonite does. Do they still even can you buy? Yeah every Walmart and I'm into candy I look at the Butterfinger I went. Nope I really like. I love them to get stuck in your molar. So digging them out and look at your finger and you go wash my internet like the only thing that kept butterfinger live was yeah. Keep your fingers butterfinger. Yeah right now me. I guess I never see him. I don't really go down to candy. I although my kids if I let them go down the candy I the only thing they are those like stupid sour sprays. That is racist. He likes to the garbage page kid crap but my kids know I love him so they hide them on me. Whenever during Halloween they literally take them in with Sour Patch. Kids know butterfinger small as they hide him so I can't have them just because they're because you do see the small ones that you see the little little squares and then you get the little rectangle ones. But that's a treat. When I'm like really doing good I really want one. Whole butterfinger awesome. Do Imagine eating an entire candy bar. Now I don't know the last time I did to be. I mean I've had plenty of from. Oh Yeah for sure for sure but I couldn't I can't really fathom getting like a king sized snickers and just on eating at king size snickers bar candidate sit down. I don't know I can understand. Well I do it. It's not something. I don't understand the difference between you want at large candy bar. Small Candy Bar. I mean it's like drinking a tallboy beer beer. I mean you can't fathom drinking tallboy. I'm just saying I wouldn't do. I don't mean I can't fathom and that was the wrong choice sorry grand police. What I meant was I. This is me talking. Imagine going to store buying a king size snickers bar and sitting down. Because there are no regular size snicker bars anymore. I really look at all. Yeah it's very rare to see like regular size any candy. Like everything is jumbled. All your listeners. Take pictures in the next time. They see butterfinger regular size. Candy Bar. 'cause you guys are wrong on that. They're everywhere boom. Here's what we're going to do. Thanh candy bars to episodes from now every listener want before we do it to send in their top ten list and then we will do. And then we'll do our top tens and Marita we'll read some of your prepared for some zag action handsome ours king-sized. I'M GONNA go out and start eating candy bars like a madman. 'cause I in here watch. Watch McCall. It's very good. But they're not as good as snicker. Or butterfinger what about heyday. Did you guys like payback heyday. I didn't mind paying peanuts and dog Shit wasn't it? It's peanuts Caramel Nougat. It's just backwards because the peanut is on the outside with the CARMO too be doing.

Nope no real fine. You can't say what's GONNA win. I just literally throughout the years I thought of monopoly isn't GonNa be in my top five. Yes it will. It won't family so we bought but I love -opoly we bought it for the Xbox we used to play. Yeah we have it on Xbox but you don't have kids won't play with anymore because you're mean because you're yeah. There's there's this one simple tactic to winning monopoly. And it's very simple by everything you land on right now. You buy all the houses you can and you don't you don't you. Don't ever trade them in for hotels somebody lands on your property. Aegis freak them over the coals. I'll tell you what. That's the premise. Leave my family. Haven't figured that out yet. This go around the board and see what would xbox xbox. I'd love. Oddly we used to play it like right. After I got out of high school we used to have parties where we'd all play monopoly like all of our friends. It was great and then in college we played it all the time. It usually ended in people getting punched people crying or entire tables. It's it's the more people bureau drinking when were playing right and then when we when I lived in Germany when I did a study abroad in Germany we bought. We had nothing to do no. Tv shirt so we wouldn't study so yeah by say you. Didn't study abroad drank abroad. I only went to one class the whole summer. One what did you do? They drank drank played monopoly. Yeah we did get German monopoly and it was not an English and none of us spoke German right so we just had to guess by the pictures on the cards. What they were four and then we would just make it up as we went along and Schaefer haven't seen yet having me Scheffer Pete Oracle Travis all Grin Greg Nie Walled Victor Rexroad vacated. Experience Convict Lived Robert. De was Robert Steel. No that's a sounds like fun. Yeah that sounds incredible. I'm going to tell you guys. It was the best the best time ever really. We went out. We partied. We had fun. We went to breweries all the time we went and got donor kebabs. Greek restaurants. We got on the train went to Paris. We went to Rome. We went to Munich. Oh my God Heidelberg. We went all over the place. We went to I've been to Heidelberg. We went to Cotton Do we can. What's the other one starts with an f? Frankford yes yeah Frankfurt right yes we flew into army so I went to Frankfurt on that base. But that's Heidelberg. Most international flights go through Frankfurt. It's a huge. Or that's what it was. We landed in Frankfurt there. We stayed there for a little bit one title bird so there was a big base where I lived at Stu Garden. That's where I left. And there's a huge army base there. We went there for the fourth of July. Gosh that's awesome. Yeah Jealous of your life was great jealous that time in his life not his life right. No cellphones either. No It's good point. If we want to call home we had a call from a payphone. Who WAS WEIRD. Really? Yeah Yeah International College here. Are you old enough to remember payphone? Absolutely okay just checking. I didn't have a cell phone until I was here pagers. I do remember pagers. My brother had wanted to deliver. My Dad always a pager because he was a volunteer fireman. I delivered pizzas for the market. That was the best job my entire life. Yeah that's what my brother did too right around the exact same time you did. Because you're both old okay onto the news jerry. So we're going onto news in the very first one that I'm going to bring up is one. That will probably talk about for a little bit. There is there is a guy that we love. Chris. Kevin Smith Kevin Smith. I do like guy he this. This is the part you might get a little aggravated with all right so there is another. There's another show that we also enjoy and we know these guys really well and they have a show called chuck load of comics. Oh Yeah they interviewed Kevin Smith for a an internet comic con. It was like an Internet comic con. I can't remember the company that put it on. But they were involved with it and Chuck from Chuck load of comics. Sat Down for forty five minutes in interviewed Kevin Smith over skype and he got the low down on the new clerks three movie and Kevin Smith laid out the plot of the new clerks. Three movie to Pretty. Your face is telling a story here but no joke. He laid out the plot to the new clerks three movie. Would you like me to tell you about it? Sure so pointed okay. That's wrong Chris. Nothing you don't know what it is. They're doing they're doing. They're doing their jobs over there. Truckload is doing their gender awesome man. That's amazing it's incredible that they just were able to get that going like. I'm extremely jealous of them. I know but So Kevin Smith started laying out what clerks three was about and he said that in the beginning of the film Randall. And this is gonNA. This'll really blow you away. And you're you're going to be blown away by the what this movie is going to be about. Randall has a heart attack. Okay Shit and he has like a really big life. Threatening heart attack goes in the hospital you know wakes up from it and Dante's there and he realizes it while he's in the hospital that he's been like wasting his life he's like we we have you know we own the convenience store now like because at the end of clerics to spoiler they get it they fade out in black and white because they own the store now and they're happy but like Kevin Smith says he's like is that really. Is it really happy to them that they own it now After he has the heart attack Reynolds like is this really what my life is like. I've done nothing with my life. I own a convenience store with a guy that worked with for a little while. That's it so and he sold movies and they've talked about movies all the time. So what he does is that he decides to make a movie about two store clerks. I mean that's kind of isn't that it is idea and I think in the movie. They're calling it clerks. That's a pretty. Meta so if it wasn't Kevin Smith behind that I would say pretty stupid but it knowing Kevin Smith and Loving Kevin Smith movies. It's going to turn out to be feeling. Works goal. A movie about his first movie. It is a heart attack. And it's literally the story of Kevin Smith Life basically wrapped up out of. How many movies made you know? And it is full circle for Clerks. Where they're going to make a movie about clerks within clerks. That's cool man so I think it could be pretty awful. I just hope it's like a real movie. You know what I mean like. I felt like yeah. Absolutely and sound Bob reboot while I liked it and it was funny and it was fun to see in a group. It didn't feel like like a real movie. Felt like no. I know and I watched him direct release to. Yeah so after watching him back No it was like a direct to free prime looking out. You don't have to rent free. It's because of the way he released because he went around on a roadshow releasing individually to multiple different theaters whatnot. So he prolong the release of this movie for so long that. There's no reason why he would need to not put it on like free. Release like video-on-demand. Because he made a crapload of money going around the country to different showings. He's in his last podcast that he is planning on financing clerks three all. Yeah that's good that I was gonna say he's also Has in the works for mallrats. Yes names for it and I can't remember. Yeah I gotta look that up Mall Rats Too. But there's a name it's a yeah rats to going up to their release. That was a great time in the whole thing. That really blew my mind which I didn't know. This was his story about the white clerks. John Lewis Chandler White. Oh Yeah I. I didn't know that I mean when when he says that all does tells the story I can save money if I shoot in black and white to change and lighting in the store. It's like Holy Shit. I thought it was just for his. You know a directive and creative. I didn't know that I mean it was one of them things where he when he dropped. The Mike walked out and sat with us in the in the crowd. It was amazing. He did that every single show really and he was. He did a seventy five cities. Anyone three show two or three showings per city. He watched it with the crowd with every in. Every that's amazing you watched it like three hundred times dude. Yeah told totally is yes. I'm excited about clerks three. I wanted to be like clerks to where that felt like a theatrical movie. Because I'm such a big fan of his his movies but I don't want like the these last couple. I don't know why but they don't feel like actual cinematic movies feel more like fan fields or like youtube videos. Almost this is saying that the second mallrats movie is going to be called Mall brats. That's not right because he said the name of it the other day. Yeah it wasn't that. Yeah it's it's mallrats to like something something I can't find it but yeah I agree with you that Jay and silent. Bob Movie didn't feel like a theatrical movie like it just felt like something together. The experience was incredible. We're talking about like him sitting in the audience not quite the same director. But that's what I was. GonNa say so. I have sat down and watched it since then because you had told me it was out you watched it and no no. It is not the same. It's not the same as seeing it in person. Really Funny Moments Fred Arnesson's great yes. there's lots of really funny. I enjoy it especially towards the end. It's what I expected from the movie. I guess but it's just a little bit too on the nose. If that I mean you know what's going to be on the nose but it's just like it's just too much. I don't know why different because like it's not really that much different than Jay and silent Bob Strike Back. It's the same movie heels like real movie like that. Felt like a movie and Janes. Island by review reboot for some reason. Didn't and it's either like the lighting for the Focus Orlando it's the way he filmed a dialogue or something like that. I don't know it's I haven't gone back and rewatch yet. It's like it's too InFocus. We talked about that when it was one I saw it was like you could see that it was filmed differently. It's film it's like a Youtube video reds like thirty frames per second. Something he did. Something different like high-definition. Maybe it's just it just makes it seem different. The lighting was different. I don't know if the flight didn't feel right but either way I'm hearing about what Like the clerks three movies. I'm excited about it. Yeah big time for sure. As long as that's what it is. I mean I don't know why you would lie you know. He shouldn't lie on any of that. But that's just the base plot so we don't know what the larger story one of my favorite movies of all time. The scene at the end and the jail makes me choke up every single time. I watch it unbelievable. I'd love that movie. Click sues incredible. I Like I love how it ends to like. How they how is kind of like a very satisfied? They pan out an light. I'd enjoy clerks to near as much as clerks one but clerks one has clerks has just as nostalgic thing for me because I mean listen huge fan. The first clerks to it's just Clerks to as a little more depth to it clerks one feels like a like a rock and roll movie. You know it's like a right it's raw it's really funny. Has that feeling to it. Yeah it just feels like a almost like an artistic movie but with Raunchy humor clerks to every single time we have to spill sh. That's why we don't have nice things. Jerry it's not spill. Wow you hear that. Thank God himself. God this is down to punish area right. They're all right next a little bit of news. this one probably won't surprise you but I still think it's kind of incredible. Tom Cruise is doing something that nobody else is ever done. Yeah you know what this says. Yes he's going to space he's GonNa Film in action movie on the International National Space Station NASA involved Elon. Musk is going to be involved. I didn't know there was. He was going to the space station. Oh Yeah I knew. He was going out or orbit is but he's going to the International Space Station Nassau's involved with it. It's crazy he's crazy guy and they're gonNA fill. It's not fifty five years old. I'm looking forward older than that. Maverick coming back. Is there really top coats topcoats? Soon that would be. That'd be cool. That was a good movie. I love that movie but the it's not going to be mission impossible movie it's going to be some other type of action. Why wouldn't you just make mission impossible? I don't know why you look. You have a franchise sitting there. That's yours. He is his. You know what I bet. I bet you they film parts of a mission impossible movie while they're up that's a good idea they're like. Hey Tom. When you're up there read this like ten years worth of movies that we would like to do space kid. Can you pretend you're running really hard in space like wow? Here's a sheet. Can you pretend like you're Chris Pratt? Chris facebook the districts in the amount of money. They're going to have to spend on that. I mean just biles my mind. Well I mean NASA involved. Elon Musk's involved in. Tom Cruise has whatever he can do. Whatever he wants me it doesn't matter Kazini guys back. That's probably even call. F I I thought you see snow really involved or is he. I don't know if he's kind of distance themselves and I think he's pretty digging a lot of bad press in the last couple of years so ever crazy. After Bob Reboot I re watched and I got myself thinking. I'm like whatever happened. Jason Lee. Yeah like he was a huge star. Yeah he was. My name is earl yes. I'm a bunch of other movies that were popular as one of my favorites. That was a good show coming backed by the way I think for like a special miniseries. They're going to get my name. Is Earl anyway so it was great so I started reading about his life and he was hard core hard core scientologist and like that's what caused his first to divorced. Actually because it was like he was like toxically scientology and his wife wives started getting like fed up with it and then he wasn't he married to Jamie Lee Presley. When they're on my name is Ron I know I know but I thought he was real life to know. It wasn't okay. So anyway he would like get into it with his wife and then he would basically turn on him and his wife at the time and like have them labelled as like toxic church would against them and he wants Tom and like they would cut him out like everybody. All of their friends lives. Nobody was allowed to talk to that person anymore. I haven't like two of his wives and then just like two years ago. He'd left the church. Well really what's her name from? King of Queens Joel Leia remedy remedy. He's got crazy it's similar. She had a whole series. That came out What happened when she been trying to get it everywhere to tell people that it's not a church to call. Nobody would listen to what they have like her camps where they like torture people and from what. I heard the indoctrination video. Listen to the Joe Rogan. When she's on there I mean crazy. He was the only one that will give her a stand to talk about it. I mean nobody would touch it. Because there's such control. Listen you from. That is where she got that. Show listen to Joe. Podcast with David. Miscavige David Miscavige is even miss. Cavs on he is was on there. His Dad was on there yet to it is I knew it was a miscavige. His Dad's on there and then his granddaughter's on his Dad Wild story where basically he imprisoned the like his dad and his mom on this in the scientology camp and like wouldn't speak to them like they had to like they didn't act. He didn't act like they were his parents. They had to act like he was like there. There was there was an older guy that was on there. I don't think it was his dad. Yes eventually he had to he. Ape was Escape and then he wrote this book and that's when he was on there and Joe Rogan comes out and says he goes yeah. You heard a lot of horrible things here too but remember two guys trying to sell a book and he didn't exactly get good vibes off the guy. Yeah so you know whatever so I love Bug Joe Rogan. But but the the girls on their to alternate that one down. I did not see different. That was a girl from the crazy church. The God hates fags church and the ones that that's right that's Meghan helps. Megan Reynolds helps his daughter. Yes that's what I was thinking about. West was Baptist Church Airway worse than scientologists. Yes well I mean to a point. I mean scientology's like murdering people took control. People are disappearing from their. The David miscarriages wife has disappeared completely. Oh prize by that. I watched that glowing clear documentary but I can't remember. Have ailing souls compared according to Scientology? Zeno Zeno say it's really messed up. Yeah I mean let's not get into religion because you could say that about all religions. Yup to a point you could say that about Christianity. You can say all the things that you say. Oh scientologists crazy. They believe there's alien plants aliens and like well but Christians believe just is ridiculous things. It's just they're used to hearing it the crazy part about that. The girl the girl from West Borough Baptist Church. She was talking about how how they were like kept separate from each other for extended periods of time where they were just a loan and then as soon as they'd be let out of a room they were told like you're taking the sign and you're going to go protest this thing and like they haven't seen anyone or talk to anyone in so long they didn't know what else to do and they she said you literally became a robot. Because it's like you were left alone in this room for so long and then you come out and they force this stuff on you and say you're traveling three hundred miles. They're going to bury this soldier. And you have to say that this is terrible. And that's what they were doing and she ended up getting out because she was on twitter with her now husband. Yeah and like arguing about yes. And he was arguing with her. It's crazy that that is become live up to such claim but like it was a very small group. It was basically just like one family. It is it started. It wasn't it's like twenty people not like thousands of people. Well there's a lot more a lot of people from outside started joining but was never big and then no I mean. It's a lot bigger than it used to be. But it's still not a large thing but that's why red state. It's a great movie. That's another Kevin Smith movie if you've ever seen seen red state don't spoil it. That's one thing is so good. I went to the Chicago Premiere. That's where I met Kevin Smith. Yeah he signed the poster for me and get shake his hand and stuff. That was the first Kevin Smith event that I went to live. I believe that would have been like two thousand nine known. You went to something before they got invited me to you had went to one prior to this because you know. I think I went to the podcast. Jay and silent Bob get old after red stain. Oh I guess. I didn't know that I thought you were thought you were like an old veteran. Seen Kevin Smith by that point. I don't think so all right so that's Tom. Tom Cruise is doing a movie in space. That all to I love Tom. Cruise man talking to you know yeah. Even the whole the whole scientology thing and him jumping on Oprah's couch. I still like that guy. Percival every single person says that he's a wonderful human being. Yeah just because he's in scientology and scientologists. My crazy things does it. Doesn't into mass majority of people that are in scientology are bad people or that they do crazy things right. You're exactly right if you get something. Good out of it if something good out of it which he obviously does then rape scientologists interesting because a lot of the principles that they preach like in the early stages from what. I've heard from just basically listen to Joe. Rogan are a lot of self-help principles. I ask so. They're just how they and their general generic it's how they hook you. It's like good advice. A lot of the early stuff that you can evolve people get hooked like you said and you go in and you pay for these classes. That's that's what scientology is going to pay for these classes. You take this one self-help class and you might get a lot out of it and it might improve your life significant significantly and then you take the next class and the next class and the next place and that's the way you do it you don't you and people get a lot out of it and then eventually when you've paid enough money because it's all based on money. Yeah you start moving up and they start releasing you more information and that's when you start hearing about like the kind of crazy stuff now. Obviously all that stuff is out now. But it wasn't you got twenty years ago the Lia remedies in there. And she's like this is great. This is helping my life. I'm a more positive person. And then she gets the next level and she's like was a wonderful way scientologist her mom her mom that she got it. I think it's just a mom but somebody in our family does not speak to her because they're still in any religion where they actively encourage you to disconnect from your family or your friends because they leave that religion yes. That's big in scientology. That's big Joe was witnessed. That's a lot of other Christian churches that do that. That's not a good place to be. No that's bad. Yeah that's not good. And that's what they do. A lot of Jehovah's Witnesses like ultimate cult man. That shit is crazy about them. I just listen to this. This stand up comic God. Damn I can't remember his name. He was on Joe Rogan. One of his buddies grew up in the Jehovah's Witness Church. It was until his twenty s really and he got out. Now he's a stand up comic. He's pretty famous and nobody in life will have anything to do with him he just was. He talks about all the horrible horrible things they did. Yeah Golly Yeah. That sounds terrible. They're not listening right now. Though so no I. I have a little bit of news. Okay we when we started this podcast. I don't know if you guys notice but something that happened for the first time in the last time in the history of the universe. My God happened what happened. Okay and for the first time in the last time the only time it will ever happen in the history of humankind donald trump got elected president When we started this guest when we started this podcast. We'll be begin. This a trick. This tra- the trick sick of fair and square from the Bozo show. I don't know twenty twenty twenty twenty twenty. That happened. Yeah it was twenty hours twenty minutes twenty seconds on in Twenty Twenty Military Times. I mean that happens every day. Eight twenty in twenty seconds military time in two thousand twenty. No it does not yes said does twenty. Twenty happens every single day in the year. Two Thousand Twenty. Yeah you're right ever Jerry. Hey Hey that's the first and the last time that's ever GonNa Happen in this podcast. I must be missing something. I saw thinking about ten ten. No there's no month that starts at twenty so there's no twenty twenty twenty twenty twenty twenty twenty twenty twenty right when it becomes eight. Pm for facebook things. It's like the person that said it was. I'm like the CNN reporter right now that said every person in America could get a million dollars by how much Michael Bloomberg spent camping. I understand seems like on the news the CNN reporters like just so everybody knows Michael. Bloomberg spent three hundred twenty million dollars on his campaign and he did and that is enough money to give every single person in the United States. A million dollars that decimal point yes. That's fine that's what I just did here. So that's why it's not the first and last time that'll happen in the universe. It'll happen every day for the next few months. Wait a second. And then yeah. Next year's is going to be twenty one twenty right and like no no. It won't because it'd be twenty twenty one twenty twenty correct so it's every day though that that will happen it will happen every day this year. Right at eight o'clock in the morning or at it only eight o'clock in the evening but it can never happen again until wrecked it can't thirty thirty thirty thirty thirty now. It can only happen at the year. Twenty one hundred. It did happen at ten ten ten ten ten. I remember that right ten ten so every day though. You're witnessing something that'll happen again. The next day speaking only this year. That reminds me of a thing I heard. On Joe Rogan. It was a guy it was snow on smart guests. It was Scott Mosier keeps. He started keeping a journal. Every which I think is a major unveiling as Phanom the best but when he writes his journal instead of writing. What's the date today? March fifteen fourteen. Fifteen fourteen K may fifteen instead of writing may fifteen twenty twenty. He writes the day that he's been alive so he runs like day sixteen thousand. Oh that's pretty neat. He's like it reminds him a every single day will happen again like you only get one day. Sixteen that's pretty that you get a bunch of May fifteenth. Because I have my planner my notebook. I make my notes in every single day. Yeah but a journal. Yeah. You're not using semi diary. It could be a diary. You're talking about work stuff. It's that I mean I make notes for home stuff to I mean. I run myself down through my notes but dude what I'm saying is nobody cares that you need peanut butter. That's not nobody cares. Like we're law teepee. Make sure you stop by the walmarts on your way home. Not that Chris. That's kind of mean. Yeah Man Sixteen. I like I like that idea. That's does make you think about how life is short and they could anytime you know. Yeah that's the truth. All right my next little bit of news so we love a little sediment speak for me. Okay while you're GonNa say Oh yeah I love that Justice League Dark. Oh I love that movie or there's a new movie Justice League Dark Apocalypse War that came out may fifth. Oh I have not seen it. I have not seen it either. But do you know the significance of this movie? No it is. The last DC animated movie. They're making what they've announced. A New Superman animated movie. It's the last DC animated the universe. That's not universe that's like the only thing de gets right. I just changing the name. I don't know I'm just saying that. Hbo THAT COULD BE HBO. Max Now but they were still being released as studio. This is the last movie that they're making. They're they've announced. A Superman animated movie. That's coming out later this year. Did you guys see Superman Red Son? I never saw it. I didn't see that you could take pretty good. I recommend last film. And the DC Animated Movie Universe Justice League dark pox apocalypse war. I lived up to its cataclysmic. Idle the last Justice League dark movie. Maybe no it says as the last film in the DC animated movie universe. What's the next Word Justice? League dark pox. War As the last film as the last film in the DC Animated Movie Universe Justice League. Dark TO BUBBLE BLAH BLAH BLAH. Right war more than lived up to its cataclysmic title but that could either mean that. It's the last movie in DC universe. Just it's the last Justice League dark hole in the DC. So I've been researching this movie. I WanNa see it and There's there's an ending scene where they say has very big significance. Tiered DC animated universe. Because here's what it says. It says it is the sequel to the two thousand Seventeen Justice League dark and the fifteenth and final film in the DC animated movie universe because all the team titans are in it. That's it solidifies. It and the thirty th film overall in the DC universe must remain for them. I would assume so because I thought that was pretty a pretty significant thing that they are saying that they're ending just runs to do well to do. He got history. Yeah but they're going to go back and Redo it. All they're going to reboot it. It's what they do. Maybe even they haven't even done this movie and they should done. Do you correct that point but I do not understand why. They don't put animated swamp things like they did and he was in. But why aren't they making standalone swamp? Thing Movies Look just saga was. It'd be make the most popular song right. You know why they aren't right because they're stupid. That's why the job so now. Nobody likes thing guys. Everybody likes not. Everybody Likes Superman. Not Everybody Likes Justice League. Not Everybody likes fighter man. It's the same with everything but a lot of people do and the new swamp thing show that was coming out on the DC APP. People enjoyed and that was good huge ratings for that. App when it came out until the last like four episodes the at least the ratings do that they were talking about the ratings while it was out and they were saying that patrol ratings were like oh well that leads the dog episodes to finish watching it. I know I totally forgot about watching. It leads me into my next little tidbit of news and they released a release date of doom patrol season two. So it's it's releasing the same. I don't know man it's a good show to my favorite shows ever so great as we know. Hbo Max taking over the the APP as well. Max You still going to be able to use the DC the DC APP is still going to be functional but all the titles apparently from the DC APP or going to release on Hbo Max at the same time that they really my only question. Do I get credit for my seventy dollars annual? Yeah I just paid. I don't know well I would imagine you're going to go into one APP. I mean yeah they should. Dc is going to be a channel inside HBO. Max still going to maintain their APP as well. Yes they're maintaining their APP as well and they're releasing titles solely on that APP go like Disney pluses Don. They're gonNA give credit. That's what Disney plus did with Hulu. If you already they just credit your account. Yes because they almost had to keep the DC lie because all the books comics. The whole Batman run. I mean which is frigging is amazing. I just want to know how many people actually subscribe to it. I don't know I don't think there's one hundred thousand. There's three of us right here. It's all matters. Well that's true and if that goes my my what I always say Jerry. Nobody's unique and threes accompany. If there's three of us here come on a model waiting fill you whereas giant in IOS and her del Rio de kisses hers and hers and his threes by nature to Menasheh beard.

Do you listen to me when I was listening? He's making twenty fifth around June twentieth. Fill out his journal so far. I don't know what season two is going to be about whatsoever. They haven't I from what I've read. They haven't released anything about plots story in as long as they bring back. Alan TO DICK. I don't care I'm Dick. Whatever gotTa have at least three any dix? As long as they bring at least one of them back we'll DRA Goddamn Brennan Fridge. Bring him back out to bring. You gotta get burned every episode. Good show it really is. It's seen DA patrol. It's worth the sixty five dollars annual subscription. Oh Jeez you get it for the whole year. There's a bunch of other good shit one of them talk about later but it is totally worth it for that show alone but then if you like watching any of the flash supergirl any of those around. They're all a bunch of the movies around there. There's titans yeah which I haven't really watched a lot of but it was good what I did watch I need to. I should've I should've served anyway. Go ahead speaking of swamp thing that leads me into another little tidbit of information that I got from Kirby blaze Mr Blaze Greg Blagojevich plus zecevic lizard the perfect Pronuncia so saga of swamp thing. Okay first off. Amazon has a little thing. Called Kindle. Kindle is where you can read books people still use that they have kindle. Anything was still thing. Oh yeah so. You can get kindle cloud reader which is all online. And it's so there's probably free and there's an APP Gotcha and they have kindle unlimited. Yes I had. I used to have Kennel kindle unlimited they will put unlimited where they put out certain titles. And you can get them for free and like basically rent them will on kindle unlimited. They have put all of the saga of something on there. So you can get all of saga something and read it for free because this leads into a little bit. More News. Amazon has released kindle unlimited free for at least two months you can get a free trial. It used to be a ten day free trial now. It's for two months you can get it for free and read whatever you want. They're also doing that for Amazon music. But it's for three months. You can get Amazon music. I knew that because it keeps sending me frigging emails about a free for three months. I got today. It's seems really great. I was looking up music. Listening to music already got YouTube music. Come good pay for that. Yeah you can. You can get this for free until August until you think. We have Amazon music. That's on our Alexa Amazon. Music already. Free if you're a prime member cracked I have him on Prime? And it's not free for me exams on Video Amazon Music. It's it's a whole prime pag. Maybe there's a upgraded Amazon music like there's different levels to it because I definitely used Amazon music for free. Yeah but you don't get everything you must like it every day. We don't because I mean I have a little echo dot so Amazon music. The pavers probably like Youtube music or spotify. Yes where you can pick any song you want exactly a Free Amazon. Music is pretty limited and they have commercials and there's just like anything like that. They have commercials. This that this Amazon music is completely free. There's no commercials you get everything in their catalogue. That means I can rock out to Joe Joe at day every day. So what is this Joe? Joe You were speaking. I was listening to some Joe Joe on the way here. It's not. I was listening the bad boy the way she was a one hit wonder. So it's not Casey Joe Joe No. It was a one. Hit Wonder Teeny bopper not Joe Thousand and five so Josie. Woah is different that person. There's so many Joe it's just a joke. She's really needs one name because she was the third of our generation Jerry. It's not yet a song up right. Now it's the end of you and be Gosh peak and then you say that's horrible. It's horrible it's a great song. Associate complete dogs Jerry just repeated US waste of time just waste of time Joe Joe guys. If you haven't I don't checkout Amazon music and check out some show jail yes so you get it for free and then as soon as they start as soon as that comes up you can cancel it. Because then they're going to charge you nine ninety nine a month for which is pay for you to music right so I'm wasting. How much music do you listen to not a lot? But we listen to it on our Google home devices and it's sinked up with them. Plus I get no ads on my youtube. I hate grads me too. I need to do something. Get Youtube music as well. It's youtube red. I don't have a commercial doesn't bother me. You need to do something well. I don't have anything but Pandora Pandora is so bad. It's not terrible. You have no control over what you're listening to correct. That's what I hate about right. You don't when you unless you pay for and you have youtube or spotify. You're like what do I want to listen to right now? I want to listen. To springsteen will has every Bruce springsteen song you'll ever made if you only gonNA listen to Hollywood nights if you pay for it and I thought even Bruce springsteen that's your that's a great way better than Bruce Springs O. Reilly Bob Seger's the he talked about. There was a simpsons joke about the Bob. Seger box that it turns out it was just one CD. Remember that marge was like this huge Bob Seger fan and homer homer and homer gets the box one CD. No He's got so many songs that really famous greatest. If I could see that that is if I could see one guy in concert it would be. Parents saw a couple of years ago. They went song really. My parents are like. Who's this Bob? Seger my melons. I think who are big fans? And they're like my dad's like Bob. Seger like naming off all of his sons. He's like no listen to music. Melanie is the only music he ever listened to. What your family Yeah Christie. What's your I've got the brand new pair roller dot the brand new key. Yes I know knows it melanie records. Well that's your favorite Bob Seeger song mines rambling gambling or turn the page to page pages. Good if you haven't heard Ramblin gambling man you need to don't know not nice. Those as mine data moves sweeter so good neighbor. Saw BOOBS METALLICA's cover of turn to page phenomenon is really in the pages. Give it and I moved my favorite Hollywood nights tours really know you guys need to listen to rambling gambling on it's phenomenal. It's only two minutes man. I know sing it all of it. Jerry singing ramming it's like you've got to. Ram We listen here in the PODCAST. Got The gamble episodes. We listen to it. Did the illegally over the air afterwards. Because you're like we've talked about secret before you think so. Does it. Was on the kinsman. Jukebox you no. I'm like like ninety percent of the only music I ever heard was what's on the jukebox shelter. Like when they had the old CD machine touch tunes was a good. Invention ended. Up is made so many. How many nights I've I've pumped forty dollars and scarce. It's IT'S GONNA be five dollars a skip the next song. Skit screw you. I WanNa hear rambling gambling dollars later. One time me and a couple of my friends went to a bar up in the suburbs and it was a rap night It was a not a good scene for us to be. We were quite intoxicated when we showed up to this bar and it was quite rapidy young. Ask and so we put like one hundred dollars another touch tunes played next George Strait songs. Power it doesn't left and he just loved it that way. Smart Acre paid five dollars. Skip your songs. No I don't think depends. You can't keep people's songs that played at next. I thought you could. I think a new depend much money. Pay It used to be that way but they got rid of that. We need to phone a friend who need any film in here because he knows how to do that. Oh yeah he's a Bam expert untouched tunes. I've seen him do it. He's got the remote control though he does that. Well no I have it on my phone to saying he works at a bar so he's probably got the cause. Remember in kinsman. Sometimes we'd skip people songs and then somebody would back stab us by grabbing a remote control for mind the barn and skip that that's bad. That's sounds kinsman. Was JUST KINSMAN. The other day you were in the bar just hanging out just in an empty bar with nobody around should nothing. No I was. Oh boy no. That's not what happened folks. Nobody get the wrong impression. There's probably listen that are involved in this bar. No that's not what happened. I went there as a perspective buyer. Oh look at it and valuate whether or not I was interested in purchasing. You should be. We're in negotiations not really. It's not happening okay. So let's see covered swamp thing covered kindle covered Amazon the release date for that and then there is also do you know this guy named he's somewhat known Sylvester Stallone. Sly Lose Brisk Baby. That was a terrible IMPRESA way. Worse than your. I don't know sorts Naggar so good listen to You didn't listen to the PODCAST. We've established that last week's last week eight months. Yeah that's right Joie Bill. That's like I mean you know anyway. Sylvester stallone was recorded saying that demolition man number two is in the work. Is Wesley sent? Yes yes nice. Wait a minute. He's but all they're doing is writing Warner brothers. Hasn't put out anything. Is it Wesley? Snipes in jail. No He's out tax evasion. He got out. Here's the deal okay. That is a super underrated movie. It is fun nominal movies. Great great movie awesome in. If if it's anything like the first one I am all in for demolition man to I. Don't care how old is interesting story. So was these landscape because he's dead is generously dead so he is derived his characters debt. But now if you got Sandra below but it's all cryogenically frozen people here but he's don't bring him back you fucking dice. They freeze them. I'm sure so that comic book I mean it's the same thing that's not right. You can't do that dude surly. I can't this table. So awesome has described. Her monarchs does yeah anyway so demolition to it. Apparently they're just writing it right. Now Warner Brothers hasn't put out a statement saying that this is in fact going to happen but Silvester Salon says it's going to happen and I believe him and he's made rock. He's like since he's been he's been on a roll with you just made Rambo movie creed all the creed movies. Who was good did he. No he did not write that I thought he did of. I don't think he wrote. He wrote Rocky Balboa which was also really good good that came out. It makes me hurting hurting. Has Anybody seen the newest Rambo movie? I have not don't spoil it. I see no no I haven't either and I I think we need to. I think we collectively needed dread to. They did make another judge dredd but without him. Yeah Carl because he doesn't own that care Karl Pilkington no who no not Carlton. No I'm making stuff up. Talk like the biggest comic book in Greet Brora. That's the biggest comic Great Britain. Judge dredd is. It's not Dr who well I don't know but like judge dredd is a British comic book. It's hugely popular over there. It's just never been huge in the US but all right. I wasn't great movie in the nineties. New in that game melons. I joined heard it was good. Yeah I enjoyed it. You never saw the original judge dredd. No the new one. Oh Yeah No. I was not good. The newest structure a well was like you'd like it if you if you've seen it. I mean because it's it's a comic book movie. It's it's not for the mainstream guys. I think it got rated a lot like by what the first one was like. It was judged by threat yes by dread followed right my last little tidbit of news here. I have one more is about mandatory in season two. Oh boy and let's have this conversation. I know what it is a bunny do me go first okay? I got some news before we get into that. We talked about some of this last night. We did me do talked about star was for like two hours last night because I had seen you seen you for three months crazy but before we get into that Nicky eight Nicholas Cage. Let's gauges back in the news. He is he is going to be starring in a live action series about Joe Exotic. Yes me talking about the tiger. Can I post that honestly? I got addicted to tiger king so I think everybody we're down there in the head engineers. I hate you. Have you seen this tiger king show make? No you need to watch it on my gear. Whatever so I wouldn't washed first episode second episode make. I can't go to bed for third episode mechanic. Mike I go to bed and it off me. I was addicted. I get addicted to show is very often but my God. You can't make that shit up so that Bitch Carol Baskin's Baskin B.'s. It's not necessarily a good show. No it's just. The story is just so ridiculous. I actually thought it starts drag a bit towards the middle of the toward the end. I remember watching the last week tonight. I remember watching it and he had Joe. I remember that too. When he was running for president was like a couple years ago I was like. Oh my thousand sixteen. I'll vote for that guy you know. I don't remember that well. It was a two thousand was a show on two thousand sixteen. Yeah Yeah it was on last week tonight okay. I remember watching John Oliver in two thousand. Yeah yes I never saw it but I I can't help. I Love Nicholas Cage by the way John Oliver. Show I love it. I agree with his politics at all. I find him knowing we liberal. However it's super funny he easily. You can look at it in if you can just let go the politics and yet enjoy humor. When he started his own church just to Piss people off. That was have you been keeping up with it lately. Have not why you went on this. Like major hunt for this. He had this random story where he found this random video of auction. That was selling a piece of rat. Erotica a painting of two rats having sex like as people like in beds sure and it was like a joke and then he went on this national campaign to hunt down and by this painting offered thousand dollars or something and so this went on for like episodes episode and eventually got it like he founded the actual painting. It's I remember his campaign about how Bud Light Bud Light. Lime tastes like Piss. That was his campaign that was his campaign I will it tastes like Piss and he had forgot what it was but he did go online. I've never had one. Oh I've never like not enjoyed it to be honest. I'd like Bud Light I I do too. What are we talking about tiger tiger naked so I posted an article about him Getting that role or agreeing to that role on our social media and I think it is probably everybody was saying that David spade needed to be thought Who's the guy the guy from eastbound and down would be? Yeah what's Danny Mcbride? Danny mcdaniels Jammie. Grabby be great. I mean he's played that character already kind of but Nicholas Cage is soul out there and so weird. I think twice raising Arizona. Gagnaire yes donny. But but Danny McBride. Dan grubby great because he'd bring the humor fucking powers so I don't know I don't know why we need a live action. Fictionalized JOE EXOTIC show the money baby cash cash. Nick Ages never done television before ever. He hasn't never not once because he's broke so it's not GonNa be movie. It's going to be a television series on Netflix. Okay I thought it was going to be a movie. No it's a series that's awesome. I can't wait to watch it. There's something I can't. There's something wrong with Nick Cage. Don't you think though there definitely is like he's got like some kind of weird like social anxiety he also went into tax evasion to? Yeah but he's fine now. Well that's why he do like you saw Nicholas Cage movie after Nicholas Cage movie at Nicholas Cage. Tell you what. Just just put him out. He had all these frigging mansions the reason why he lost his ass. 'cause he he invested money in real estate and then when the real estate market crash yeah he was underwater in like these thirty Million Dollar Mansions in. Belair nutty had not only that but he has probably one of the most valuable comic book collections of all time. He's got huge clashes. Got Action Comics Superman. He's got a couple of copies of the he is a huge Buchner. And really time. You know I didn't like the biggest comic book during the world. He named himself. His last name is a cage. He named after Luke Cage Really. He's Coppola you know Brandon Roy. You're right it's like his like an. He's like a nephews. Like a nephew of Francis related to Sofia Coppola like Jason Schwartzman. They're all related. No Shit you know so much about him. I do a lot about action. Comics Saul people probably for sure. But they're worth millions and millions of dollars and he's got he's got fantasy the for Spiderman. Wow He's guy huge caliber collection. He was supposed to play Superman. Yes yes returns Yup. Yeah which would not have been good. No chance to play Superhero. He was he was in kick ass. He should've been watchmen. Should have been night. Owl Watchmen agree. I think so. That would have been great to get Chris. But that's it. I just nick cage entire King. I think it's I think it's great. It makes me think raising Arizona. Which is one of the best movies ever made? Forgot about them so good I know I say a long time. But that's a really good movie. I haven't seen that go to watch that to grab seen on brokers me and crystal watched varsity blues the other night such a bad. It's horrible you don't like you don't want Your Life. That's probably been on this podcast forty times. It's it's okay. Tell me don't tell me it was good so I played football for anything that you're GONNA save following the statement of. I played football from that act. Almost forty years old is going to be. No no I was reliving. You know partying and doing all that I mean not doing catalogs where. Your teacher was the stripper. None of that but no just having fun so the football actually was fine. But when when James Vanderbeek fucking bad in it? He's such a good actor his website where you just does the facial. Expressions he's hilarious. There's a website. Yeah James James Vander memes facial expressions that he does and it's hilarious. He's super funny. Yeah and actually. He is a pretty good actor. I don't know about in Varsity Blues. But he was in the show. Don't trust the B in apartment. Twenty three which he plays himself I thought might off. Yeah I think he. I think he played himself. He was good in that he was in movie. Rules of traction was GONNA the same. What's that girl's name? Yeah that one Denver. No Jessica Jones Jessica Jones. But I realize it's Christina Ricci. No critters or last name. Kristen Ritter Kristen. What Redder not related to John Ritter? She's not I don't think so. She's a good actress. She is great actress. She's very James Vanderbeek. Not a good actor. No He's not. I think he's a good he's hilarious. He's Hilarious but man that movie was. I mean he's pretty good Dawson's Creek. I loved Essence Creek. Casey Pacey was I know Johnson Josh? John's no I think it was Josh Johnson. Josh Joshua Joshua Jackson Josh Jackson and that guy was awesome infringe. All my wish. This show never got cancelled. That was an awesome. That was an incredible show. It was weird it was like X. Files put better not better but because it wasn't like procedural right talk about stars. I was going to talk about man. Delorean yes news on big news on mandatory season two is that they have released that. Boba Fett no one hundred percent be in this season and the same guy. Tamara Morrison Played Django fit in the earlier star. Wars movies is going to be playing all the fat which obviously makes sense. A lot of people have argued that maybe the little kid should be playing boba. Fett in this show because he was a clone. Yeah exact- on altered loan. Yeah so we should look at it but he should look identical. Yes you just made you. Just you know finalized that argument as to why the wrong so yeah. He's playing Boba and they've said like most likely his helmet will be off. Because you know who it's going to be pushing the mandatory very intrigued but either as a mandatory and so we found out it's a creed not a creed that developed after boa fat though it developed after the fall mantle. Yes all right so boba. Fett was around prior to the fall. Mandala correct just to be clear. Yes you could tell them about the other. Well I wouldn't waiting for him to be done. That's all okay. I'm ready for the part time star wars fans to carry to about. Now what are we can talk about real star stuff out bigger things going on and season to season two of the main things that you don't even understand so you can go away. How do you go take a p? Go ahead explain. Take a tinkle. Can you just continue to talk? They have announced also. This is so cool up being ren is it going to be in season. Two of the men the Lord I do. I didn't know that they ever released that though. Yeah I haven't seen any of being read and captain. Rex is going to be in season to play by the same actor as Boba. Fett because clauses. Well Gosh I didn't know any of it gets better. Yeah well that's it. I mean Solta tunnel well about so so honestly haven't actually released like officially that she's going to play what's her name. Mom Rosario Dawson. They haven't officially released that she's playing that like it's been talks but it has not been officially released official. It's definitely been asked. Officially no what has not well anyway. You got a computer. Look at our real star wars fans nowadays right now if you know and I've seen the NF star wars rebels. Why it's a big deal but a Soka and Sabine would be starring together in season too because you know directly what they're going to be doing. They're looking for Azra Bridge. Well I mean. She shows spoiler student swamp but the big the big thing that came out of that. And this I don't know if it's been officially released but it's basically been released because Dave Baloney more or less set it that is going to be and that's only going to be like one episode that they're in and they're that is going to be leading into a new star wars spin off that is going to be a live action sequel to Star Wars rebels. Which is what theorized. That's our theory and it's been discussed in more or less said by Dave lowy so I'm pretty sure that's what's happening. Because he also said that rebels is done. He said rebels done. But that doesn't stop me from making a sequel and then right after that he released or they released that Sabine ran and rex are going to be in one episode of season. Two of the mandatory makes perfect one episode. Yeah because not in a bunch of either now. She's not through the whole season. So it makes perfect sense that that would be setting off the spin off that would be the sequel to Star Wars rebels and those universes are all coinciding with which is what Mar which is Mar. You're taking some of right on Marvel's playbook I mean tying everything together years down the road. Dave phony has the greatest genius and Star Wars History. The next George Loose Lucas creating the the series but other than that I went back and watched the last couple minutes. We're done with the news right. This is going to be my what we're watching anyway. So obviously because I got a bunch of stuff and cover what? I've been watching because I've been gone for doing but you're talking about the star wars mandatory documentary on Disney. Plus there's been two episodes on me so we can come back to unless you wanted to go. Go go about it so if you didn't watch the last one. Chris talked about it last night so I went back and watch it this morning and the last twenty minutes half the last ten minutes. Yeah he saw Dave Floyd talks about how gun? Jen is most important at all and you blew my mind last night and you brought it up so I had to go back and watch it. And so they've flown is says that George George. Lucas had quite gone as skywalker. Father figure he gets killed and only Kanobi is more of his brother not his father will. Then that starts can down the tail of dark side and it blew my fucking mind. Because I'm a huge fan. I mean I have my lights. My customer lightsaber over there at the wife. Gummy for Christmas to show you guys and that blew my mind. I never even thought about you. Don't think about it. And then you realize the fact once after you learn that that you're like Oh my God. All these movies were built on this premise. Yeah all the way to the end. Yeah and you're like crazy. Because he had no father just totally blew my mind and then dude blew my mind. What are you told me that racks is in return of the Jedi? The movie yeah. He's in it in the battle of indoor. There's an old man with a white beard when they're storming the bunker racks now. I'm sure they didn't know it at the time. I know a Dave Bologna when he made the clone wars or rebels when rebels you see all the wrecks and he's got a big bushy beard. Yeah and he conned Captain Rex. Wow so I need to. I have not gone back to return the jet to find the credits to see who that character is. And what he's supposed to be is just rebel soldier one yeah but in Star Wars legends. They gave them a name and it was like Nat something else. Dave Baloney right combat. It's still genius that yeah. Is it all together? He specifically designed his character around that character because he knew that's what he was. Yeah it's it's so cool and Dave Baloney. Everybody doesn't know this right now. Creator Lorient Star. Wars rebels clone wars and also involved in the new movies. Even though I don't know how involved he was but he was legitimately George Lucas handpicked right. Hand Man Spongebob. I mean deblum. My mind watched the first episode of the Disney Gallery. He was like working at Nickelodeon or something like that working on children's show and he went in he met with George Lucas and basically. That's the point where George Lucas basically handpicked him and then he became his right hand man. That's incredible and like George. Lucas was incredibly involved in the development of the animated series. Yes in the movie. And that's where they started working together and even today even though George. Lucas doesn't own it anymore. He still hold on storylines going forward. I think Dave Baloney Jon Favreau should star wars from now on and Amy. I really don't I don't see why they wouldn't. I mean they're doing it already. Yeah Not in the movie universe though no but I mean the movie universe now is going to be in different directions. I think I've heard I've heard several different things. That and they're gonNA do a Prequel to the last. Three movies were is supposed to be directly after returning yet. I am bringing back Lou. Camel and Mark Mark Hamill and any can skywalker comes back from the dead. They're supposed to be a bunch of different. I haven't no like live action. Deeds there's camel. Yeah there's a bunch of shit going around about it I know takeaway is going to be doing holiday. Not made a stand alone. Darth vader movie or series of movies. Or why they login show. Why would you not do that? There's you can want underneath that suit and exactly comic books and novels and Video Games. There is a whole. There is so much story of have comic books on right here. Read them all in people realize he. You see person. He's heels bad some of those like vader down and some of those comics date Kim. A sympathetic villain. Yes absolutely big time sympathetic. Play very well at the Helms of their own series. Absolutely I mean look what he did in just of a rogue rogue one I mean. He's UNSCREENED lightsaber Fort. T- Ten minutes. That's I mean. Darth vader's whole movie run is such a small snippet of what? Darth vader has actually done. What is their life for Darth vader screen? Time fifteen minutes total very very little. I mean it's probably more than fifteen minutes but it's not much more much. It's really not. I would pay big money to see a standalone. There's incredible story there haven't touched on. It doesn't even to me a movie. It'd be perfect. Tv Show. Oh my God they do it like the man and Lawrence in fact I don't even eat like here's what you need to build the Star Wars Universe on Disney plus demand Lawrence in these shows and then based off of that make movies give mandatory in season one man Lawrence season to you. Got Your Star Wars rebels. Put that in there and do a couple of seasons. That started darth vader. One keep working on that and then Bam Movie. Yes all the a trilogy of movies. I mean so. It's like the coach of what marvel were marveled mate. Built it all in the movie theater yet built on streaming and then when you push those movies out well they're going to blow the fucking world well so absolutely resting. Disney has a different platform. Now I mean they have Disney plus where before it was read. They didn't have anything any of this. They had a deal with Netflix. Get Royalties I was reading article about how there's talking about a daredevil season for coming back but at the end that actress so net flicks can that books. I saw has had to be cancelled for two years for Disney plus bill to piggyback okay. That's that's all. There is rumored that there's going to be a daredevil series but that actors daredevil has been canceled for at least two years now the actor. I don't anything about it. They're talking about him being in the new star. The Spiderman movie. Yes that actor cannot play that character for two years after cancellation. So they're already been two years. This was an article. I read six rounds in Texas so well but they've they've confirmed that that there's a rumor going is if Marwood had their own channel like Disney is brought them into. I think we would have seen a whole different marvel cinematic universe I agree. The differences marvel doesn't have the ability alone didn't they might now but they didn't and they probably still don't now they don't have the ability to go out there and start a streaming service. That within wouldn't come out November there over fifty million subscribers already. That was their five year. Goal was fifty million really and now they're at fifty million now. This lockdown helped absolutely and they gave away a lot of yearlong subscriptions. Yes they did. But they're fifty million now and not numbers not gonNA stop growing. No and I don't really billion net has over a billion subscribers and they still got a lot of good content so at fifty million they have a long way to go and I think they're moving quickly. Because here's what here's what Disney plus has to do though they have to start releasing more shit like the mandatory yet they have to making content like that because the content that they have right now they cannot last on so everybody loves Disney movies. Everybody loves the the old content but that doesn't gain you more news subscribe. Yeah more and more start. Getting these marvel shows coming out. Disney chicken the Deadpool three movie. No it's still in works. Oh it was out yesterday that that they can't it it's not gonna be there. There's no deadpool three right. Now it's going to happen now. I thought Ryan Reynolds was talking about how it was paused. But they're actually getting rid of it because it made a billion dollars. I just don't see how you could get rid of that Roy as right now. If you check out Disney stock. They need make whatever the hell they can. They need to start making like X. Men stuff well they need to start making more obviously more star wars stuff they need to start making. I mean you could make a wolverine. Tv show if you wanted to haul man. There's so many things to be a long time before they start spending two hundred and fifty million dollars on movies again because we might be. There's no need. We might be two years away from full box offices at movie theaters out here away. I don't think so maybe not two years but we're not two years from full movie theaters. No I don't think so. I don't think you're that far away. They're going to open up Jerry but there was a lot of people that are not going to go. Because they're scared agrees gear. I just don't think I don't think you're not GonNa have full movie theaters for releases. A movies I just don't think you're going to have the prolonged like filled theaters but four releases. I still think you're going to get the. I don't think it'll be before you are not going to put movies in theaters. They're going to take a dive on like. I don't think you're GONNA see movies in theaters the way we've seen movies in theaters anyways. Because of the whole trolls thing you are correct. Trolls came out and has made more money than they ever had. On the original trolls. Caveat a kids movie after shutdown when kids are at home at work that yeah. I understand but I think that's the way they're going to go because just like we were talking about in a previous episode like universal. All of a sudden removes says. Well we're not going to. We're not gonNA show any of the news or AMC. We're not gonNA show any universal movies in our theaters. You're shooting yourself in the foot. There are they because regal and cinemark bolt jump on board. Oh they did I. I didn't every move significant movie theater chain. In this country now is is all banning universal. They have to be honest. Though y'all they're yeah so but to be honest if you can make that amount of money just by streaming even if you make three quarters amount that money in in streaming does it matter to them. I mean I guess if you want to be considered for any sort of awards would be main thing. I mean at the end of the day the fashioned. The first are going to get any awards. A lot of a lot of these movies that are coming out on net flex will get a one day release to release in a few movies. These got a good point okay. One hundred million great fast and furious movies make billion dollars. Clean all day long hitter. Are they going to get billion dollars on streaming? Probably not? No probably not. Because you're so how much we pay for tickets. Eight dollars a person when we go for a movie ten Pencil Essay say ten so he soon goes thirteen if we go to AMAC sir. Let's thirty dollars frustrated. Go so if you go rent that movie for our families around. It's what twenty for family to rent or buy it no to rent it when I in theaters dollars. It's all so I say you go to watching theater just twenty dollars so if you buy it at home or you rent it at home. It's five six dollars for not. After it's available for rental. The MODEL trolls was they released at the same time. They would have released in theaters. And those movies cost twenty dollars to rent by understand. But you're getting that twenty dollars that you're renting it for but then when you go to a movie theater and you buy a thirteen dollar ticket get a percent. Most of the percentage of that goes back to the movie theater. So right. Here's my question to you too if we hit a chance to go back and watch and game or any we've seen. I don't want watches at home all say we had the proper salt. Say this could be. The new norm for us. Like movies are going to be released to us from now on this way. Twenty dollars run it saw in your in your basement if you could take one return to a theater room where you had a giant projector in you. We all spend some money on and correctly. Yeah would you rather do that? No no no I would much rather go with either. I WANNA theater the hundred foot screen. Yes I not one hundred inch screen it to my opinion if you did it correctly and you did it right. I would much rather watch it at home that to go to the movie theater. Are you fucking kidding meal? You'll never get I'm excise locator. You're not gonNA have the same experience on the same. I mean it's the sound with with the sense. I mean yeah with the size of screen that you're in throwing it out there. I don't know the ambiance though the popcorn do you remember? Do you remember seeing you. Pull your recliner up to your eighty inch. Tv Act like it's a real a movie theater you can't you can't reproduce it. I you can't reproduce it though in reality. Yeah I mean that this is why I've always said I don't. I don't believe movie theaters will ever go away because of that experience but I do believe a lot of people don't have the same mindset as me about that like sure they don't people in the world there. Seven BILLION OF US. Eight almost almost eight. That's a lot of people but a lot of those people also don't have the availability of a movie theater. Well Watch movies in Africa. Well okay so there's four billion people with access to movie theaters okay. So we'll just by fifty percent significant wrong gonNA die accruing anyway so it don't matter no but I get the argument. I just I do think in our lifetime especially in the next twenty years. You're going to see less and less theatrical release movies and more and more digitally released movie or like streaming release movies. Not as the theater's all band together. What's hard if they band together and start removing whole production companies from releasing movies at the theaters the only option they have is to really summon streaming so again that's like being the thing is the pro. What struggles is the small movies right The Non Marvel Disney non fast and furious? What do they do like those guys? I don't know 'cause they capitalize off of the state could but you streaming. I'm not going to pay twenty dollars to see independent film. No they could capitalize on theatrical like released wise. Because maybe if you go there and there aren't the big budget movies. You look more forward to the ones that are out right like if you just want to go to the movies and want to see something. There's no big budget thing out and you want to date night. People are going to see those little things and I think they could make more money doing that. Because you don't have the big movies out there I don't know maybe maybe what were we talking about? What got us into this? We were talking about the mandatory starting at Star Wars. Is there anything more to that? I think we covered it all but that man learned documentary is Great. It's not it's like a star wars documentary. Yeah but it's a round table Taika watt t t bryce Dallas Howard to they also Cologne Robert. Rodriguez is going to direct a all epicenter episode of Main Long Prize by that is so awesome to. It's this really interesting behind the scenes of really good show any other. What you've been watching. I got I got one one thing. I got a ton one thing I have been working. I have been in the director so I haven't seen you as an awhile so one of I'm in Texas. I was working so I get off. I have about two hours if I go to bed so I two hours of content to watch. I watched all star trek discovery. Yeah I talk about this show. I watched the first two episodes because they were free when the email on. Cbs All access. But I finished up. I thought they were good. If you're star Trek Fan I enjoyed it. I also watched picard. Oh which I really enjoyed. I mean because I was a next generation kid. What is the premise of Picard? So artificial people like data have been outlawed and Bacardi's retired and he's going on a mission and that's all I wanNA say because I post next generate hosts next generation. He's retired. He's retired but dealing with eight out of the S. And it's it's dealing with a lot of the same people are stirred. Don't one that hasn't been in a warf and Dr Crusher. But he's like getting all of the people that were giving extra heaton. We didn't get beaten back in there and talk about Wesley crusher not man. I wonder why would I figured he would have jumped all over that? He's a huge star higher truck guy. There's probably GONNA be a season two because it was pretty popular in it did very well. I enjoyed it a lot so we can get wil wheaton. He does the Audio Book for Ready Player. One he does You know that's another movie. I never watched movies okay. Book is amazing. Oh I've read the book and it's phenomenal. So I also watched altered. Carbon season to that scene altered carbon. Go back and watch one can't can't do it. I can try at tried to get through this show. Four Times I love it. I was on like the fifth episode. It's whatever one he's being tortured he's like on a table he's being well now. It's like the fifth wheel where the and I was like. Yeah that's fine while they haven't gotten into the story like it because if you go back and you think about how powerful is that love the premise point of anybody? You can do eight. The whole point of a real element must shit on. It is one thing I would've loved to see. Eli must do not name as kid a plus a number or something you know that's going on rabbit hole. I'm just GonNa keep going talk about for like an hour last night but both of our wives were sitting there. They were not impressed. I'm sure like literally always bad more outside hanging out in the garage and we indeed were inside talking about star. Wars like an hour goes by. We're like well. Let's go outside so we go outside. We sit pull up chairs. We sit down to immediately overtake whatever they're talking about and just talk about our at both looking like so. I said Fuck California. I'M GONNA open up a moment in the factories and we're gonNA shut you down. I would love this. Must come out of his factory in like a iron man type suit and just just machine gun them all because he's discuss this flame floors first of all. Well he would not have an Ironman type shoot. He would clearly have like a Mac had like how popular maxwell every video game everything. What's the game called? It's a Mac wars. I wanted. So what else did I watch while I was down there the experience? He's into yeah. I've never watched the expanse. It's amazing I saw the first two episodes of the expanse after you had talked about it on a show and I need to go back and start watching it because I was very intrigued with those two episodes of three. I'm sorry season three watched anything. That isn't there like five series. Two or on Scifi in the third one is on Amazon. All on Amazon them. I that's where I started watching the first two episodes. I really enjoyed it. I mean if you like your Sifi actually as travel waste of yeah not not not star trekkie. The world's going to be perfect shit. It's like living. I mean you got Earth Mars and he got the outer belt and the outer belt is the asteroid belt and the and it's a whole culture that has grown up in space. It's very similar to a comic book premise. That I had came up with years ago. Chris about two or it was like a two down. It was called to down. It's on this computer in front of me because we expanded a bunch on it. Yes and eventually became forthright did but it was completely different but we expanded off to down and it was because all of the resources and stuff from Earth or junk like there was nothing left so we stay sent like the government. There was multiple different governments on the copyrights SNARF comics. Yes a sent. They sent all of the ships out to go find other planets. We come up with some good. Okay for the premise. The Earth was like Collapsing in and they were sending out these like like ARCS which will be called them and they are sending out these. Two different colonies is one ends up going finding this habitable planet like all the other ones get destroyed but like there's one left at finds is habitable planet and it was the only blip that they finally saw. Yeah there from about done with their journey. They're like well we're never GONNA to anything. And they find this habitable planet and they find out that there's human life on this habitable planet. Yes and then what they come to find out is that there is only like one time every year that they can spot where the kate with that planet. Yes once a year all right because after they found it there ever like oh now. It's here so they pinpointed. But the way like the access and the patients go. There's only like day every year where they can actually communicate with that planet. So what happens is over? The years like crazy shit starts going on in these different planets and then like the one day. Yes they're able to communicate and there was this one woman on earth you with this shit on your own. It was based off the premises of his. And then we kind of expanded on it. Yeah I up with the basis of it and then we had talked about. I think like phone a fucking writer. Scripted solely shit. Because this is stuff that I would actually hidden lost so there was like a man and a woman that were obviously like a a love interest and remember if it's the man or the woman but one of them gets because there was like a Like an initiation process like you have to be accepted to go on the ships and only one of them got accepted to go on the ship and they leave and then the man and or woman is still back monitoring where the ships go because she wants to know like what happens to her love and they all start disappearing but then that one time of year they see the blip and figure out holy smokes. There's one still out there and it was like jumping back and forth from Earth being collapsing to the ship. Where they find out that there's more life out there but what happens eventually is we says. Teleporting them back and forth. They start having a they. They have to when they get there. They can set up this beacon. That would allow them to communicate but they're still can only communicate these anyway. What happens is they? Keep coming around but like the people that were already there. In Second Planet remind me if I'm wrong on this started getting more like warlike yup throughout the year so the next war and then they figure out a way to like teleport thing on earth because then the government's start finding out about it and they're like oh well we can access that place and start exploiting like what they have as well. Which was the whole idea of like getting away from like we're trying to get away from these exploitive governments that have ruined the earth as it is and you. WanNa know that we started writing or we wrote the premise forum. We never finished. We can't use the name because it's like Disney copyright tolley ideas copyrights nerve but it was called spaceship earth. And what happens is like this was yours. Yeah this one was my people on Earth. Start to realize. Like through unfailing conspiracies that the earth itself is actually a ship that was built. And I mean I'll give you the short pitch like kind of did this on Scifi. They did yeah not the whole Earth where they say the earth dies and they shove him into a spaceship the earth. The Earth itself was a spaceship that was created by race. Okay all right and we continue we evolved on it just by happenstance but this was spaceship that we find out that we're not just like randomly on this planet like this spaceship was created as a ship for an alien race transport to a certain place in the galaxy. They died human started evolving. We have this life for hundreds and thousands of years in the short pitch. Was they find out that they're on a spaceship and the earth is a spaceship and now they've arrived at the destination. Oh cool like you find out what. The destination for this ancient race of aliens was wasn't the I quit your day job. Start writing this shit. There was more. What about the one to fuck that? We had so many ideas that I have saved on this computer. All of these pitches valid goals computer. What was the one where the guy was living on earth and it was like invisible walls? Yes so that was. Also we compete. We combined that with two down to create forthright interesting we were just. We didn't have a lot to it now. He was living in a computer simulation which he didn't know about but he figured it out because he happened to walk through an open space that they didn't have closed and he got like on the other side of the computer simulation and realize like oh like there's these open holes in this earth that you can access and then and then the then there was people that were trying to find him because he was the only one that had accessed that and he was like Joe Coming back and forth out of that and he was like this small time guy and that's what he owned a Bagel shop. Do you remember the slain? He owned a Bagel shop with his wife and happened to stumble upon like this thing. That's school cool now. That grew into forthright. Because what happened. Was We needed to add? We decided we wanted to add Nazis. Yes so then. It kind of became that the guy the protagonist and forthright. I don't know if you've ever read. I don't know if you've ever gave you the first script. It's on Patriot and you can read. It ought to not all of it. Now there's the first four pages are out. I should start only four page script for the premise of that was this guy finds out basically and I won't go into depth but he finds out that like he's had mental problems. His whole life like schizophrenia schizophrenia. And he's all these medications and he has these visions like he'll be in a room and then all of a sudden like visions and some of his visions. There's like wars going on and what he finds out his his visions are actually like his ability to actually jump dimensions into dimension where the Nazis won World War. Two over the words fucking call. So it's like a parallel dimension to one we're in and it's like as if the Nazis one World War Two and they occupy the United States and then so he eventually figures out that he's actually crossing dimensions because another not schizophrenic. He's actually able to cross dimension no shit and he finds other people without ability. There's like a small team of them with this ability. That are like the Nazis are trying to infiltrate our dimension because they have this huge army. I'm like really impressed by. So there's just like little group of freedom fighters like but they can cross in an hour and they can foil the schemes of but the Nazis are able to not physically crossover. These guys are special because they can physically crossover dimension. But the Nazis figured out a way to like talk to people in other dimensions so they have planted agents in our world that are actually working for the Nazis from the other dimensions. So cool man. All guys was his psychologist. Yes that was being on these meds. Suppressing his ability. Fuck guys write a script. You done. You quit fucking working. We had some of the done actually. Yeah we didn't. We just didn't care for the artist now and we didn't. We decided that that story was just so big so big that it was like so ongoing we the way we outlined it. We had like twenty issues like this isn't even the end of the story book boys that's a fucking TV show right there. Well it's like a novel and there is kind of a couple of marginally. Afterwards we found out there was a couple of similar out there. Like there's one comic book called Uber. Yes Uber was similar man in the High Castle. Yeah which is similar but you know I mean are different enough. It is very different though. Neither of those have crossed dimensions. Now Dude. I'm telling you. There is cross dimensional robotic. Nazi warfare warfare and and love interest. You know you get the love interest you get trying to save people you get all sorts of different things in that book and my favorite scene was driving down the road in his car. And all of a sudden it's like old school Nazi tank boss out. Yes and then. He automatically crosses dimension in his car. Crashes into a poll and he's in the middle of this like torn Nazia rebellion. That's amazing that's a great story. You guys need to write that one is. We won't get it published. Do something with it. It's just sitting there. It is it is just sitting there. So's jetpack samurais which is also really good story as well that's a whole nother one. We've heard we've come up with a lot of ideas there just aren't all finish my favorite's still as our Kia from how that's another one. Seven layers of I to a hill. Okay we have A. It's more of a comedic comic and it's based off. Dante's inferno you know the book Dante's inferno seven layers of how? Yeah but it's this guy who has to go to Akia with his girlfriend and his girlfriend immediately get smashed and then he's got to go through the seven layers of Ikea's hell my bosses on each level. That's Larry kind of like a Scott Program yet. It's very like that mixed with Dante's inferno there's a one point he fights against a minute. Dr Yeah minutes are so like he gets to this level in the Matar's the minute scores actually trying to put together a futon because it's an Iky and he can't understand the directions and he can't hold onto the little screwdriver. Any immediately thinks that this white guy is at fault for making these directions so difficult so it was like the low level of anger right. And he's fighting him but by the end you realize he's just like. I can't put this time together with these hooves and then there's a gluttony level that's Swedish meatball monsour. Yeah Oh my God you. It's it's really good. It's this is one of the things that I wanted to do with that. What's your sketch comedy? Oh Yeah but I want that artist that I bought the step outside from frozen prints from. She would be very good at that. Yeah she she'd be incredible anyways. We were going to do what we're watching. Yes or at an hour and fifty minutes. Oh my gosh I have. I have a few things that I was just like three things. A couple of them are whatever one was the Jerry Seinfeld. Twenty four hours to kill that special. Okay I've heard very bad things about it is not very good. I've heard Joe Rogan actually But that was not good. Yeah so I started watching. It was very excited when I saw came out. I started like I said I started watching it. I fell asleep multiple times throughout it. Kept going back to watch it and there was just not much about it. That was funny and it's super disappointing. Because I love Seinfeld the show. I Love Jerry Seinfeld as a comedian. I love Comedians in cars getting coffee. I like most of what he's done. This stand up special was just not something I mean. Maybe if it's something like you go in person and see him you know. Obviously it's going to be different right but watching it on Netflix. There has been so much better. I've heard that I've still gonNA watch it probably but you should. I mean it's fine. It's fine for what it is. It's a good time waster going to say it's terrible. I think it's something people would enjoy little bit. I'm just basing it off of some of the other comedies specials. I've seen over the last and Thomson Gurre Thompson. Garrett kicked out of the park I mean Dave Chapelle the greatest muscle maybe of the last twenty years. I agree and honestly even I liked crushers big boy. I liked that better than Jerry. Seinfeld's I thought Like that was the only Bert Kreischer. One I've ever watched and I thought it was decent. But then once I watched Tom Sawyer. I realized like holy smokes. He's a way better. Comedian have you ever seen the machine? I've seen bits and pieces of the original machine. Yes we're just not a big fan. I know it's his shtick. Like his stick is just not my my thing. He's fine and like I said. I thought a lot of the jokes within his stuff was funny. But Jerry Seinfeld's was pretty bland. The stories are just sold long and like involved that kind of story comic any got into a lot of big stories that I just didn't think it was really that great have you. Did you watch any of that dude? Jerry Seinfeld's netflix special. No I have not give it. Yeah you can watch it if you want. I Love Jerry. Seinfeld comics getting coffee. Comedians in cars getting too great awesome. I've also Leno's garage. You've never seen comedians in cars. Getting Coffee I've seen a single one of them. Oh the way you said. That was like yeah. I've heard that's great so Jay Leno's garage two parts to it. There's there's the car part where he actually has a case. H Six hundred horsepower. Tractor around there just to show it off and he's got a quad track. Yeah yes quarterback. He brings the Tumbler. Yeah he owns like a special edition. Quad track just for the hell of it. Is that the one driving around all the time Yeah you can't drive around. He does a so dumb. I mean he did for a show one time but I don't think he drives it around frequently so he he got the Tumbler to the the bill from begins and job that around. And it's really cool. That's a great. Show your chance to watch a general garage rally recommend will where does it on? I've only seen bits and pieces of it on Youtube. Yeah I don't know what else on. Well I got one. I've been watching and then I think we can go to dude because he's got a bunch he wants to talk about. We don't have a lot of time a couple mark but you're not important. I am important and these stories are important. And it's all about me okay. I got a big one. I've been watching. I started watching on the DC universe APP. The Animated Harley Quinn Show. Allah might need to watch. It was recommended very much. Okay by avid listener. First-time caller regular radio thing. Oh no listener. First-time called they say that all the time you got a lot of radio shows ideologue Like Rush Limbaugh. So yes a lot of people say that money to you. Look at me like you've never listener. I'm sorry schooner not avid its longtime listener. Exactly what I was saying. You knew exactly what I was saying. Anyway I heard somebody podcast talking. About how great this show is so. I checked it out. It's really really really funny. It looked like it was. It's it's super adult right. Oh my God yeah. It's definitely rated are extremely violent hilarious. It's like a workplace comedy. Where WITH ALL THE BATMAN VILLAINS? Were they all like? I didn't realize like an office setting the Legion of doom really Joker is super funny and hilarious. And it's kind of all premised on the fact of Harley Quinn and joker breaking up and like Harley Quinn breaks up with the joker but joker doesn't want anybody to know. He wants everybody to think that he broke up with. Harley Quinn okay. It's like embarrassing for him. And he is randomly just murdering should have people like constantly perfect. Joker how Larry the action is great. Poison Ivy is great so Harley Quinn goes to live with poison ivy. So she's there's it's just really really funny. It's really good. I think round out. I'm not a huge Harley. Quinn fan their minds but I am. I guess I. I've always liked Harley Quinn. I liked her from the original Batman. The animated series like I like the origin of her. I just hurt. You mean. You're the to the biggest Batman pens and I know of her character has grown. Oh yes different. So so much which I like seeing her character girl because there's so much more to her. I mean yeah well this is a whole different thing and like I said the comedy aspect is. What's great about this Bain Malaria? They go to penguins son's Bar Mitzvah. All the villains go has just like Bain is like the guy that all the villains dump on make fun of Yes. Hilarious is this. Hardy voice does yeah. Is this like an archer tape shovel or it's similar to archer. It's got really good animation though better than like it's not that same style. As our first season Archer was amazing. All a lot of archer is very good and Kaley Cocoa. She's the voice Voice Harlequin. She's Great Allah Voice. Acting is great. She's from Big Bang theory. Okay yeah so it's and the girl plays Poison Ivy Great. There's a funny really super funny scene where they go out to this Bar Mitzvah. And she's like I don't like going and she's like super hot poison ivy and she's like I don't WanNa go out. You know like all the guys are always all over me. Basically like she's kind of a lesbian and she is in the comics. You could tell on the show like she's got a thing for Harlequin just sherry hardly doesn't realize it anyway so they go out and she's like well whatever so she starts getting hit on by Kite. Man It's forgotten just like the thing and kite POPs out. It's funny so they go on this ridiculous advanced. So she's got these ramones that won't she sprays it makes people fall in love with them but it also kills them and turns them in the plants yes and so for some reason takes it and gives it to a bunch of kids and so she's like. Oh we gotta go we gotta go get the antidote so tight man flies are there. He's like okay. We're GONNA and he's trying to go get her to go on a mission with him so that was the whole plan. Yeah so basically. So they go record. Here's apartment she gets the FERMO one room and he's buck naked their bed. He's like come on and she causes them out. Whatever they're flying back and K man's like Oh man I just really misread the signals. And I'm just like I'm really sorry you're just so beautiful is kind of like a little touching moment. She's most like aw and I don't know it's just really funny. Because like two episodes later they pay it off or kite man and Harley Quinn run into each other out in the world and she comes back and she's like I ran into fucking kite man ruin it. She's like did he say anything about me. Really funny how they pay off such a little thing like two episodes later. Yeah it's really funny show. I like it a lot. It looks good. I've always I just saw like advertisements for it on Youtube and it looks really funny and I've always thought like maybe I should watch that but has never been a character that stood out to me. So I'm the only Oh really is the worst part of the show now that she's bad but like the supporting characters are like and joker and I'm trying to think of who the other main villains are ridler Batmans in it because she gets in bed is he's only been in one episode that I've seen I've only seen like four episodes and he was one of them or two of them. How many episodes are there for the season? I don't even know but there there's two seasons out already only smokes. I guess I didn't realize it was out that long. They're like Jim. Gordon is like spas doubt guy who's always saying inappropriate thing which he should be and Batman and Harlequin like they're talking to Jim Gordon and he's passing hunting. Batman's just like Jim. Joe Seventy audits earlier. All right dude. What are you GONNA watching I watched superman the Red Sun the other night recommended. Yeah that's a really good one. It's good It who wrote that comic by the way. That's that's an old comic but it was. Somebody wrote the best part about that whole moving Batman he's a terrorist and he murdered motherfucker mark. Millar Mark Villar. That's right just the just a whole different. Just how everybody's a different aspect and that really enjoyed that one. I highly recommend it and I started watching Helen Wheels. I'm almost through the first season of that show. Yes such great Bohannon Bohannon just a straight up murdering all in Bohannon. When I had gray back cash that was my number one name Colin. Hell on wheels on. Yeah I'm like I like the name. Colin and Marley liked it too. It was like on our final five list of five names really down. You actually listened your kids names. Oh Oh my God I gotTa List on my phone my notes. It's got like seventy five names on it. Holy smoke kept paying them down. Oh crystalline name. My I this when she goes. That's great this name are Saunas. Okay all right no. I can't remember what I could pull this off. I can't remember. What am I? Final once cash was we'd both sides on that one but there was another one. I wanted Grayson after Dick Grayson. Nice love it yeah. We'll just call gray. So did you name cash tangle and cash? Tango and cash. That movie I was I was going to did not make it last week. Almost did you listen to the Patriot. Identity patron yet. It might have been. It hasn't been released yet technically. Are you kidding me Jerry? I just exported tonight. It's going out tomorrow on the five women. You mentioned it actually is not spoiler is not but it was on my list that I wrote out of my top. Was it movie? It is a great movie. Not What we use named after though okay staying after Johnny cash good last. Abc's last one. And you guys have been talking about this show in a lot. And I finally had time with the kids are all gone. I'M GONNA turn this on you guys say it's Pretty. Raunchy turned on the boys. Oh Yes oh boy. Oh boy while I'm on episode three and I am addicted because it is everything superheroes are not supposed to be exactly what superheroes would be in real life plane seen. No I have nine episode. I remember I remember the conversation. We had a pit of your stomach. Disturbing is one of the most disturbing things I've ever seen committed to film which it's it's disturbing. We're not GONNA already been one plane seen in Mike. That's not that bad. Saw which was on an episode one. I believe no this one's Oh okay all right now. There's never forget this place. We had to go home. Watch a little more of it tonight. Yeah you definitely need. There's also an amazing and to the Athol Mann Character Yup hand. But he's still in the I think he's coming in that dude he's fine. Yeah he's the worst but I love what they do at this character later on when he's trying to save a Dolphin. Yes when he gets by your. You're it's a really good. It really hadn't had time to watch everything. I chose the Star Trek path rather than watch the boys and everything I done in Texas because Star Trek. I know you're in for a treat. That's such a great show and after that you've watched carnival rope. Oh yes it's on my list. It's on my list. It's incredible the the only other two that I've watched really aren't anything new whatsoever. But they're movies that I've been somewhat forcing grady to watch making watch movies that I've loved from my childhood and I started with the my name is an Eagle Montoya. Yes the Princess Father. You Watch fucking bright he yeah. Why wouldn't you it's movie? It's in my top ten favorite movies of all time sure. That's a great movie. Did he like it loves it? What how could he not? He's perfect kids movie. It really is and it just didn't I didn't know how he was gonNA take it either. I was like I think we should watch. This explained it a little bit to him. And he's like okay so I turned it on and he was like sitting up watching it. And he's like he's like that's is that's dread pirate Roberts. What's HE GONNA do? I just thought it was funny because you like. He did watch that. I don't think he would watch to. Bryce a thousand questions. What's he doing? Why is you giant? How come in storage gold has swords greedy? Did that too and I just kept telling them. Shut up and watch the movie. Get all tell you you just have to watch it. And he did and he loves it. He's watched probably shut your mouth Shimon. That's that's not in that movie now. I know it's not just imagine you doing that. Oh yeah like well Farrell. Yes I basically shut. The next one is a little bit lesser of a movie. But I still love it from my childhood and it's ace venture and detective. Now I have. No reason ever watched that again. I love him so I didn't like him at the time. Did you make Grady? Watch that one too. Yeah I'll wait until the very end. Well he closed a he made them closes is for some of it because it's inappropriate for children but he also thinks that's hilarious. We still need to watch the best one. Which is the second one nature calls? Is that the one where he comes out of the House. That's funny. He loves them. I get so much enjoyment seeing him. Enjoy the same things that I did. Even though I'm forcing him to I don. I never was a fan of ace venture. I always have been because you were older than me when they came out right Jim. Jim Carry's pretty hilarious. Back in the day was far Marshall Bills probably his. Spank you spank Handy Helper. Ten or something. Is that what he says? Something like that. The girls that I was in school with around. They say that all the time and there's a lot of things that are very obnoxious about that show. I mean it's not good religious. It's just funny and I'm more of a mask guy myself. A mask is one of my favorites too. He can't watching that food. That's not kid friendly. I watched it when I was a kid. Talk Different Type. I don't think you watched it when you were seven or eight. It came out when I was that age came out like ninety like five R. rated. Pg Thirteen. I'm tempted to the comic book is fucking rated absolutely but yeah it was a sequel that Some of mask with me Kennedy always usually bad bad. Yeah what was these experiments or experience experiment one of those too? Yeah it was pretty good. It's still bad I don't remember it was not. It was ask came out in one thousand nine hundred ninety four and I would have been seven because I would have been fourteen ten. It's it's got a six point nine rating of ten on IMDB. That's way better than I would've expected. It's a good movie. It's very friendly very became in love with cameras. It's like one of her first movies. Yeah trying to think what other Jim Carrey movies are Liar Liar along great movie the Truman show. Truman asked for that. Fucking straight movie. I love that. Show Bruce Almighty morning can new ignite the other one. It's one of my favorites of all time Eternal Sunshine of the spot while one of my favorite movie l. Time yes it is. One of the greatest movies ever is not like. It's not a kid movie by any means. No that's way different. But we're talking about Jim Carey and that is his best movie. I think I would agree.

Wait a minute phone Tell us about Courtney this woman who you with how you, how you mad and you've been on and just give us the backstory. I met Courtney, unhinged and First of all, she's One of those people because he's an er nerves with comma and yeah, I really respect someone like you know. Themselves to helping other people and. Active on her out, of course, but also the. Great Person We went to a night. As a restaurant, you know like low key and I. have. A really great time Little Guy and she says that she's not you you like I as it gets kinda nervous and I appreciated her honesty you know. We get it and I thought thing to really going well until. A Pager notification pays your went off and then to suggest the league because she was on call and go to. And and and it's been like. A week and a half now, and I tried texting and seeing if everything was okay, we could. Have another day and I. Heard nothing he's not responding. You're into her she seems nurses are many are thoughtful. you know incredible people very selfless and so good quality to have when you're meeting somebody new and you thought there was this connection when you met in person. So I can see why you'd kind of want to know what happened because it's always weird when you walk away from day thinking one thing and then you don't hear from the person which means they probably thought something very different. So let's call Courtney. We'll see if we can get her on the phone you'll be on the phone at the same time and hopefully whatever's going on we can straighten it out and then Hokey guys up on another day that we pay for okay. Some. Yeah. Yeah. That'd be great. Can you hang on for a second? I say right here you've got to hear what happens next. We'll do part two of waiting by the phone right after this on what three five hey, Justin. Hey, welcome back let's call Courtney You guys met on hinges. She's an Er trauma nurse and you really thought she was. An incredible person and a great character and you had a good conversation, a good date she had to leave in the middle of the day abruptly because of work. But nonetheless, you thought that you would have another day and you really were you hope for this except coasting you and you WanNa know why? Courtney. Yet peaking date. Crew Fred Show One oh, three five, kiss s M. in Chicago I'm started bothered but I do have to tell you that we are the radio right now and I need your permission to continue with the closet a cool for talk for a little bit. I, I love you guys. Thank you. Thank you so much So get ready to maybe you've heard the show you know this is about, but we're calling on behalf of the got him justin who you met on hinge on a day with. Ice. Yeah I rem- I remember up then. What happened? Well, okay. So we met on hand and I was probably a little standoff on his because. The pictures on his profiles on him was him like. He was like a data type. Let's just like my type like this big beer on here and I yes I. Love Harry Burleigh Mountain met. elmich type and. Yeah, the first thing you see is Like the man Bundy had and I'm no doubt though is like bright a hand We had a great conversation on in your now and I was excited I was. personality and you back the total I showed up to the restaurant and I literally had texting because I couldn't tell it was him like a completely different. To rid of the beard. Completely Clean Shaven had short hair like a baby face and I'm an Er ner are kind of like the perfect excuse. And I lied and I said that I was on call and you don't have to go. So we really went to sit down and I was like I just I can't even pretend I can't even pretend he was he looked completely different and it's just like it was. Like. Basically. The guy is a fraud. He's proud I. Mean it's like if I showed up fifteen pounds heavier, you know what I mean it's like happening. For. That's fine. Justice here. Go ahead. Man I. Mean you've heard all this you've been quite the whole time. I'm sorry to mention the Justice here Courtney you probably knew that though maybe he didn't anyway wh- What do you? What's your response man like he looked one way and you look totally different. Okay how you why look different because I had a job interview and had to corporate when I had to change my looks through I could have you know going you're the dishonest what I had to say you're making emergency give leave. I. It's immoral. I was trying to be nice the. Nice about it but. I guess like comes out. I don't know why you wouldn't have any updated photos of you in what you look like. Now that's just like in WanNa want well. I had to do it for an interview and also. Be mentioned that to me like you mentioned that the when we were talking about I didn't even recognize it to me. You guys had good conversation though right I mean didn't wasn't it worth sticking around and just seeing if there was any chemistry. I feel like when you lie about something bad like it's simple as you look like doesn't level. But I mean, okay. So she's into a very distinct look. He no longer has that. Do you think it's fair to say just that you should update your photos that look compl- apparently you look so different the she didn't even know that it was you and she walked into the restaurant I mean yeah. I yeah. It'd be a fraud or a liar. He changed his look like Soviet. I mean look we talked about having a little different now but on the method is we talked about your beard and how you did not of November. Brilliant and every year and it's like well, why wouldn't you bring up like Hey, not there anymore marketing your. Dinner. For dinner does she face it emergency? She was gone so. I I don't I don't know about that. But nonetheless, corny would you give this guy another chance? It sounds like maybe no. But you know you you connected with him on the phone or whatever unhinged before you went out are you that consumed with that look I mean yeah. The look but also really the fact that he was lying to me like you know second day for me because your baby face was not what you described yourself to be. So I don't even know what else is. You're lying about, and if he thinks that he can be in a relationship with me and stay his beard off without even asking me there's no chance. Okay Permission Justin is what you should have done. Everybody knows that. Wow, I. Turn. Colors now because I had no idea from raising a first date. For you to meet someone. Thanks guys. Sorry nothing outcome you were hoping for the best of luck to you and thanks for your time Courtney. Good luck.

So sure Rubio because I've been banned from target before and. Yeah yeah you gotTA turn. Guys. These guys this couple over the weekend in New York, they went to a popular Soho Brasserie restaurant. Or an eighteen dollars bottle of wine, and instead we're served a two thousand dollar bottle of wine. Manfred. Table of businessman. The funny thing about the story among well there a couple of funny things. But I guess the businessmen, they got the eighteen dollar, the dollar bottle wine and they didn't even notice. So know here they go. Through the or the nineteen eighty-nine Chateau Motel. childbirth. Sounds Nice. Right. That's how I would order if I if I went to Balthasar Baltasar. Restaurant. Have the nine, hundred, eighty, nine shell most on rotschild boys. I guess that's two thousand dollars. So then instead they get the eighteen dollar bottle of wine and I guess all these businessmen are drinking the stuff like this is the finest wine available or whatever, and it turns out it was eighteen dollars not clear how the mix up happened I guess though they were not charged for the the to I mean, how could you? So nobody was you're you're saying? Why The businessmen didn't drink any didn't know, and then the other couple didn't know they ordered they didn't order that so they can't charge anybody for that bottle. I'm trying to see if I I think I read that the they wind up giving a businessman a bottle as well, and I don't think anyone got charged for the one. Thousand Dollars Well. They're probably because you know ever you trust me you don't WanNa know don't don't go to a restaurant and order a bottle of wine for like sixty bucks. So you think it's delicious. Don't go to vinnies look and see how much it wasn't. Be Very upset But these Chateau John Roth child has not luscious black currants with powerful right? Tannin's an extremely long finish allies me. I don she's yes. That's described me as well with eucalyptus on the nose and Vanilla Bean and ripe plum flavors. Seven. Out of one, hundred on the thing this isn't the first time this happened by the way in Manchester England, a couple was accidentally served a fifty eight hundred dollar bottle of wine after ordering a three hundred and forty dollars bottle of wine nonetheless. But anyway, that's that's quite the mixed up and it would kind of be the problem is I think it will be wasted on me like if if I ordered the eighteen dollar bottle of wine, it wasn't paying attention and then you brought me. A two thousand dollar bottle of Wine I. Don't know that I would know what happened. I would probably just be like is pretty good and then I, just keep drinking it. You know like it was nothing and then Only later, to find out that it was like the greatest of all time or something you know. because. They don't leave the bottle the table do they or yeah. I, guess they look at it and go just an awfully fancy label for eighteen dollars. Whatever apparently new hotness now on the black market if you're interested Paulina in a new business opportunity you. Travel, you could sell these outside of Kohl's centrist. Trunk. Travelers using fake corona virus tests, certificates to board flights and some apparently paying up one hundred, fifty euros. So whatever that is the hundred we'll call two, hundred, fifty dollars for forge results. The brazen rule breakers of said, they were able to board their flights have to doctoring someone else's tasked and changing it to their name before printing it out and showing it a staff at airports in the UK. Many airlines are now requiring proof of negative corona virus tests before travelers can board a plane to certain countries a small industry of. Selling false negatives. Certificates is also cropping up travelers reportedly willing to top up anywhere between fifty and a hundred and fifty bucks for bogus documents So I don't know if it's the I. Don't know I've been asked to produce that traveling around the US you know but I think in other parts of the country they're asking for that if you're allowed. To, go at all. What did I read that France Shut Down Again Spain shutting down again, a bunch of places of shutting down because the coronavirus spiking so that anyway I guess if you've got a a negative result, you can just you know sort of I don't know sharpy that out right right someone else's name in there and then sell it. All right. Thank. You seem really deep in thought on this one. Don't actually do it. Sort of getting. Right I you got to find a negative result. Let. Me Tell you as we've seen Paulina.

Show good news stories next, and then my aunts, my Saint Sedan, the one who lives in Argentina but is now living with my parents as if she is like a like a child, I wonder if my parents have a curfew on her because she lives in Argentina and she was kind of concerned about like you know obviously covert and. I. Don't know how is being handled stuff. So she jumped on like the last flight she could get on six months ago. Thinking that she'd be back. You know a month later or something, and she'd been living in my parent's guest trump for six months, which is you know for a retired lady who lived in Argentina and wild now everyday that's that's gotta be weird. Nonetheless she throughout the most random hypothetical. And a couple of my buddies at my parents house and we're all sitting around drinking and she throws out this hypothetical and we're like, what did you find out I? WanNa know what everybody thinks after eight o'clock about this hypothetical because clearly she stumbled on something and she won't tell us what it is but I don't know where. I like when people will ask you like a question they claim is hypothetical or or it's about a friend you know but really it's about them and talk about them what you do all the time. Correction what I do for a living. Is made it quite a twenty year career out of. So my buddy. No that was me that. Happen, and happened to a friend of mine done. Anyway I'M GONNA. I'm GONNA, throw this out. See what you guys would do just after eight o'clock. Good news stories next after Fred Show. What oh three five. Fred show is on what five Kiss FM. Feels good guys good news happy positive stories every day on this show Kaylynn you find. So Molly Saiga and Ryan. Smith love story went viral after she posted about it on twitter as part of the how it started how it's going trend mullion. Ryan. Met while undergoing treatment for the same type of cancer and they say they never expected to receive such an overwhelmingly positive response to their tweet. Preached over a million likes, it's very rare it's very rare that cancer. It's a very rare kind of cancer and it doesn't typically happen to people who are twenty and twenty one years. Old Says Molly but their relationship was certainly the silver lining to an unpleasant situation. They both found themselves in Ryan says, everybody sees cancer this looming a terrible disease and nothing good comes from it but something like our relationship and both of us beating cancer comes from that and it's kind of like the flower that's growing between the concrete that's while they were both healthy athletes young and rare kind of cancer, and that's how they met and fell in love. Story over the weekend about united posted about some people a couple of men on a united flight, and then they got married or if they had like a party on a united flight, well, because that's where they met and then on the inside of each of their rings is engraved the flight number. They met. That's cute. Sweet. If. United posting pictures of me on twitter and all that. It'd be like Yo free travel phone live. GimMe. GimMe those middle seats girl. Or Die. Over there. Hey United This is actually it's kind of a sad story but very sweet at the same time because people have taken notice but a nine year old boy has been sitting outside of his closed school every day because it's the only way that he can do his online lessons, his name is Jonathan and his family can't afford Internet access from home. So every day since the coronavirus crisis closest school, he's walked the short distance from his home to the building so that he can connect to his school's Wifi network and he has. A little box as a desk every single day he goes there with his mask. His mom says, he's very independent. She lost both of her jobs due to the statewide lockdown. Now she's working at one of them, but they're not able to afford the Internet. So every single day he walks over there, their teachers inside they check on him she walks over there and checks on him when she can but he uses the school Internet because he doesn't want to. Miss Class, I want to learn but his parents can't afford the Internet and. I think the. Is Part of the story too but. When I first read the story I just thought about like the things that we probably take for granted right like honestly when was the last time and there are people out there I know that can relate to destroy. But what was the last time I personally didn't have access to the Internet at my house for whatever reason like I always have it and some people don't and I think there are many things we take for granted that other people don't have right now. So it's probably something to be mindful about but one of the the school started to fund me. Page and they were trying to raise two, thousand, five, hundred dollars currently have raised over twelve thousand, five hundred dollars to help the family. So it's a sad story in the pictures kind of make me sad but it's also very sweet because he just wants to go to school like everybody else. So anyway, think about that today as you start your Monday, the stuff that the baby you have to tell the people don't have right now and make sure that you don't take that for granted. We'll come back. We'll do Let me see pathetically my aunts hype my aunt. Has got some dirt on somebody. Okay.

I won't say how old she dinner sixties I'll say that she's the she's the eldest she's my mom's a momma's the youngest. No, she's no she's a middle. She's the middle that is not true the as well. We don't acknowledge the so I guess he's the eldest of the two. Okay. Put it that way. MOM's best friend she lives at rj she retired from her job in San Francisco and user savings to buy a condo and Argentina and just moved coldstream to Argentina. She's an incredible lady didn't speak that much. Spanish took some lessons whatever and just said screw. This well wanted to move in Argentina and says, she's been living there for a while and the corona virus stuff happens. So she flies back here and moves in with my parents and their guest room and was like I'll. I'll hang out here until we get this stuff right now. Well, that was like seven months ago and she's living with my parents, which must be must be just amazing. It's like a teenager all over again you know it's like dinnertime and Paula, and then she has to come out to. Dinner or whatever. But she. So we're sitting around and we're we're having beverages or whatever. For Happy Hour on Friday my couple of my buddy one my buddies over and we're just sit around and she says, I, have a hypothetical for you and so we're like, yeah, what is it? She says, what would you do? If you saw. And by the way, there's so many layers of questions I have here, but it's my aunt. So I'm not asking much. She said, what would you do if you saw the significant other of someone you know in an adult video? Would you. What would you do? Would you? Say something to the spouse would you say something to the person? Would you say nothing t pretend like it never happened? What do you do with this information? So my buddy trevor is like. What did you see? Like what is where is this coming from and she's like, no, no no, it's a hypothetical and my question was, how much are you washing down their parents? Are using parents, Wi fi. She probably is I mean my God living in a guest room for seven months and do what you gotta do I guess all her Argentine. Argentinian. boyfriends are all just Teenage. Fred is back at the house over there. In. Yeah. I had my own Wi fi. Hansel picking up the phone while friends downloading. Mom I'M ON PRODIGY No so so we're like we'll follow. What are you talking about like? Did you see something? She's like I said it was a hypothetical now I don't know where you come up with that at a nowhere but let's just say eight, five, five, five, nine, one, three, five. Let's say that you you know you're on the Internet and there are lots of things on the Internet and and you stumble upon something and you're watching this and you realize I know that that is the boyfriend husband wife girlfriend of my friend could be old could be recent. Do you call your friend and say. What is this I'm looking at or do you say nothing? Now I gotTa tell that person like maybe they already know that it's out there could be old. But if it's new like Yo, you're you know significant others banging some other person on the on Hugh I argue you pretend you never saw it or that you never acknowledge it because and the reason I say, this is because Okay. Maybe the maybe your friend knows maybe your friend doesn't know maybe you know people have arrangements and they've come to terms with certain things that that you know you don't know the answer to that relationship like for you to call it out that might just I don't know that might embarrass everybody who already knows his wish again, it had never happened or you're the one who calls it out even your fault you didn't do the at your the one that sort of his era, the The catalyst for for the end of their relationship because you call it out like what he? What do Kayla what would you do? Oh, I have a big mouse I say something I couldn't. I couldn't really keep that a secret thing anybody. Tell everybody except for the couple themselves, it'd be your. I talk to the couple I think now. Do I yeah I think I would have to tell I guess it would depend how close I am to the friend of the significant others like I'm thinking of one growth in particular and if her boyfriend were doing it, I for shirt would have to tell her like I could thinking of her. Picture. As this happened. But I'm trying to think like with my close girlfriend for sure I'd have to if it was more of an acquaintance I probably wouldn't. Let it go because I guess I don't know. I know people who have. Rules in different arrangements in their relationship or different standards or just things that people accept you know and they're not what I would do. But I also, I don't I don't think it's for me to say anything because I might embarrass those people. If maybe it's all up in in the confines of their relationship and then I would be the one to embarrass them than I get isolated because it's like what he knows we can't hang out with him anymore. I don't know I guess I would just mind my business on this one. For, me would matter what kind of porn it is because I don't want to be like. I. Saw you. You know in this porno they'll be like, why are you watching that kind of porn in the first place? Past. Like really furry. Raphael really really maybe they already talked about maybe the person knows and. Addressed in the relationship. I what I'm saying. Happened before they met and is kind of a sticking point an embarrassing thing, and then for you to then call it out maybe two point two perfecting you more than it affects I want to know. So this is this is and I want to know if she has other hypotheticals to or she just sits makes sense. Or, if she somehow source of me of Sassoon evidence but sainted and Paul is hypothetical of the day is. Let's say that you see these significant other of a person who you know in an adult video what do you do Caitlyn good morning welcome to the Fred Show. How are you? Are, you a great I would love to know. Where this came from but I may never know so let's just we'll just put it out. There is a hypothetical what are you doing in this situation? Well this is actually kind of happened to of mine we were going through fortune just for fun and scroll through and found some very naked pictures of a good friend of ours. We ended up, contacting her. Screen time. We're like what the heck is this, and she's like the you the comments is he and see how many comments I have some like. She's the one. Down and I'm like, okay. Her husband is commenting on them. Wow No, they know already know about this and I'm like, okay whatever whatever. But. Yeah I. Guess. It's like I I just my business because I don't know what the arrangement is. You know I don't know I don't know what you know and what? What what what the couple knows and what what kind of freaky stuff you're into like I don't know. Right. Right. Right. Oh. Yeah.

And after watching in my cousin face on there I went off and sent it to. Her brothers and I just kind of like left it there and after I sent it to them higher family knew about it. So I feel guilty but Keanu about it she was comfortable with it and she did really Like on on it too much.

So we'll see what happens with that two thirds of Americans. Believe the corona virus is when to ruined their holidays they talked to two thousand Americans have found that seventy percent think that this will be the most challenging winter ever and three and four were worried. The coronavirus will surge again this winter all of this leads a sixty seven percent saying that they're concerned the damage is going to spoil the holiday cheer completely what do you guys think is he going to ruin your holiday? I mean. If you have family here that's local or if you're you know if your family's out of town, you know eight Netflix. In Chicago. But your family lives somewhere else. Of course it's GonNa. Definitely when the holidays but I mean if you're. From here and you see your family every other weekend I think it's GonNa be okay as long as you're not getting a big amount of people that you haven't seen before but if it means, I don't have to buy a lot of gifts for Christmas I'm all for it. The obviously, very sad. My grandparents passed away a few ago but I. I don't want this the wrong way, but we actually talked about this over the weekend I'm just glad that they're not here to see this because because it seeing they were eighty nine and ninety when they passed away and we wouldn't be able to see them. They wouldn't be able to leave their homes and I know that that's me and many many many people are dealing with this right now where they're not. Able to see. So many of their relatives because of the opportunity that they would have to spread it them and that's GonNa make the holidays tough for a lot of people. I. Think because they're not going to be able but everyone's going to be able to be together in a way that they were last year and in previous years and that would have been in family. Especially, I think they would've been really tough. Not, to be able to be around them I, don't even know what you do. You know see him through a window or Lista Forum or I. I think that's really sad. Yeah. It's awful and they're really confused typically like why are outside the window or why you have a mask on they just they don't understand. So it's really sad arden.

Her latest solo album, and shows, no signs of slowing down as she approaches her eightieth birthday, this summer, mail. One way ticket in some never been. I'm. And I'm bound a week and this week, we hear from the living legend about her life and career that's coming up on sound opinions. This is sound opinions, and I gotta tell you Mavis Staples is on a tear with her new release, we get by she's released seven solo studio album since two thousand and four. Every one of them a gift, she'd basically stopped making music for a few years after her, her father died and man, she has come back with a vengeance. She's also celebrating her eightieth birthday in July as a prelude to that, as done a handful of these star concerts across the country, which is really incredible to see all these luminaries coming out to celebrate her legacy. So we're going to take this chance to revisit our interview with her from two thousand seventeen you wrote the definitive biography of Mavis. Staples. I'll take you there. Mavis Staples, the staple singers and the music that shaped the civil rights movement. A fantastic read came out in two thousand fourteen who is Mavis Staples. Well, it's a grand story. Jim, it's Span's twentieth. Century mu. And on the twenty first century, it starts with her father pops. Staples who grew up on Dockery farm in Mississippi and learned the blues guitar at the feet of the founder of the blues of the modern blues. Anyway. Charlie Patton, combine it with four park gospel, harmonies move to Chicago taught it to his children, including Mavis and her brother and sisters Purvis Cleo, and Yvonne. They became a family band known as the staple singers performing in churches in Chicago, beginning in the late forties, became a national act. In one thousand nine hundred fifty six with uncloudy day Mavis went on from there and her family to greatly influence and provide a soundtrack for the civil rights movement in the sixties. They were best friends with Martin Luther King would often be as opening act at his presentations during the marches in the seventies enjoyed a huge string of hits including I'll take you there in, in the nineties. She began reinventing herself as. Solo act. Prince produced a couple of records for her. You know, as you said, earlier, Greg, after pops Staples death in two thousand the staple singers as a group ended it was a dark time for Mavis, but she rejuvenated her life and career by focusing on solo albums a few produced by Jeff tweedy of Wilco. And now the latest the new one we get by produced by Ben Harper. You know what I mean? She's turning eighty in July and has produced more than fifty years of relevant music to mazing. It's amazing. And I started Greg by asking Mavis, if it's true that she began singing at age eleven nailing is actually eleven is when we first went out to sink. Oh, Lebas when he went pro. Not totally pro whom when we went to the first storefront church, okay? We went out of the living room because we started in living room when I was about eight years. Oh, wow. And eleven years old by the time I was eleven years old, my, Katie lived with us, and she came to the living room when night and hurt us for Hurson, and she said, shucks, y'all sign on pretty good. Thing in my church Sunday. Big honor honor. We were so happy. We were going to be singers, other than on the living room floor. Well, when you say us, now it's you and Cleo. Thuja Yvonne and Purvis, right. Yes. Brothers and sisters, and, and pops and pops. Dr pump play guitar and props was given us the voices the voices that he and his brother saying when they were in Mississippi, you know, as our sound pop Staples and Katie, you know, she tests cleanly in April on to go to this church that Sunday went to church. We saying. So you're saying the very first song pops tortoise will the circle beyond broke. The. Bye. Why? We saying that song and the people will crapping us back. We didn't know what that meant. They kept clapping and someone had to tells they, they, they want he you all again. You say so we got up and we saying again, we'll circle building broke we had to sing. That's three times. It was Onuson win that pops hit told us all the way through. You know. So pops ish go. These people I guess we go on home in nervous, most home and the rest is history by. This guy. It's an amazing family group. You talked about those harmonies pops taught you that he, he learned growing up, doc reform reform. Now doc reform is also the birthplace of the blues Charlie Patton was playing a lot of guitar there. And pops is also studying Charlie, Pat. Man. So he's bringing these guys voices in with blues tar, which, I don't you know, pops is innovative beyond belief. I think he's one of the great musical minds of the twentieth, century. Styles together. Yeah. Guitar player the way he envisioned, those vocals with the family. Did you kind of have a sense that something different, you sounded a little bit different than everybody else even on the gospel circuit? You know, I knew we would different you know, we had our own style. We didn't sound like anybody else. And everyone else would get up as singing loud Lau. And we'd come popped we say low low as the way sing and softer and the end the harmonies the harmonies that pops gave us was was what was so unique. You know, he had clearly my older sister, clearly seen in a minor key, everything. Or you see that they want to sound like clearly a re the one to beat her baby sister, because she couldn't sound like Cleo, though. And the guy William with the pips he wanted to some actually they were. How are you going? How do you do that? But clear these boys and pops his guitar was the staple singers that made the difference from everyone. Shit. We had a sound this lady evident gay she helped us a lot when we first started making evident gates rope. Oh, staples. I don't know what you choosing y'all saying, Incontri you're saying we hadn't ever heard any country. But for some reason, we were over to country we will pulled into folk, we had a sound and those people when the blues people started calling us to blues festival as my fault. I said, daddy, why they call blue festively say, no blooms, his maids, you go back and you listen to our music you. Listen good is a you hear jazz blues, Goss, spoil arm be you hear all of that in our sound. So I could that was it. I listened. And he. Right. And then that's when I heard the moves because for years, we signed with father, saying, and gossip and we didn't know puzzles praying, the blues owners, get Dr. Yeah. Man. We forget, we think gospels always been with us, but it was being born here in Chicago. The Reverend Thomas Dorsey, but, but was there pushback from the Dorsey school of gospel to you guys bring in all these other elements, blues, and country and folk. Well, Thomas, a Dorsey, you would call his gospel spiritual spiritual very church swing. And precious. Lord dig my hand, you know and, and the gospel, the shooting of gospel be, you know. Win the sites. Go. Martigny. So there were some churches that wouldn't let system. Hey, you're Jackson saying in their pool pits rally. Really she she she she's in move on a little high. You know, she had she sisters out of five. They were rocking roller. System. Hey, you're Jackson was greatest. I, I, I admire her so much. You know pop Schuster played big seventy records and I was a little kid. I've been back room plan with my dolls. And I would hear this, this is the very first lady's voice that I heard 'cause he always had the souls, third pupil travels through Nightingale and any had this lady come through an it moved me on up into liberty. And I say that daddy, he said, you're gonna what you make a yes. That's a hey, Jackson, he would say Sistema, hey, your taxes, so much. When I finally met her older sister, MRs businesses. Hello. Ms system. Yeah. Out in my name, and maybe. And I think too, she's so old you to I say, yes, ma'am, she said, well, I want to hear you saying. And I say all you hear me I sing out. The Staples singers break uncloudy. You had tried to make some records before that. And without a lot of success, you were still basically Chicago-based act. That's song. Exploded, it became a huge nationwide. Hit uncloudy day, your version of it. That is a very famous gospel song. I've heard millions of groups do that. And I've never heard anyone do aversion quite like the staple singers did that day and that arrangement that you had for that song. Yes. And your voice Mavis probably what seventeen eighteen when you record about thirteen fourteen you sounded like you were thirty five. Like a much more mature like a woman who had lived, you know, pots that was the first time I'd heard uncloudy day when he taught it to us. You know, we sing it down in harmony anything Mavis, using will will will he told me and I just said, it will will will who they tell me now, you know, Vivian Kara, BJ Rego's.

Welcome back sound opinions. I'm Jim dear goddess my partner. Mavis biographer is Greg Kat, and we are revisiting our two thousand seventeen conversation with the inevitable Mavis Staples about her, life and career we left off with the staple. Singers version of uncloudy day gaining popularity across the country and this led the Staples to their deep end significant involvement with the civil rights movement. So significant in fact that we devoted a whole show to that one aspect of their lives, which you can find on our website, sound opinions dot org or on the podcast feed. We're gonna pick up the story, though. Jim in nineteen sixty eight and that was a key moment in the staple. Singers career, that's when they signed to Stax record in Memphis, sex was already emerging as a major powerhouse in soul music, sort of the, the southern counterpart to what was happening in Motown, and they started recording at that point. With the great Steve cropper guitar player Booker T in the sheets. Now those records with proper weren't big hits. But then they went to muscle shoals, Alabama at the behest of stacks chairman L bell, and the recorded some of their finest music. So I asked Mavis about arriving in muscle shoals for the first time Milla nowhere, Ella. Bam people were necessarily welcome with open arms there. But here's his white rhythm section right and your family in the studio together making great records and that blue, you know. You know, we got there to muscle show and met the guys. And they were just so nice. You know, just so nice and even Jenny we would go to his mother's house for Jenner. Jimmy Johnson Johnson, and I realize all white people weren't me. You know, they say these guys were so loving and so tight. You know, that's what made that music so good their attitudes and their personalities. And we in the studio together, you know, when you we haven't done that long time in right? Is to whip. The rhythm said. Feeding off of each other, you know, Becca controls something on that piano. Just make me go. David. David, who all of that? I'll take you there. It was nothing planned. It was nothing. It would just free fall, just fall came together in the moment. Just came together in the moment, people don't realize that song has, like five lines of lyrics in it. That's right. And it's a four and a half minute song. And you go man. That's, that's an awesome song, then you realize it's all improv is a mad at him. It. Yeah. Improv, how was it coming together? I mean it sounded like just a sketch, and then you guys took it somewhere happened. When I heard those guys plan. And see what was so killing I hadn't ever seen anything like this before. Barry, Beckett would hear the song. I know please cry, anybody, we're it, and that he would write lines. He would write notes he right lines down and give them to the rest of the as what is that? His own pavers. Okay. Never seen anything like that. But then they start playing palm. And this guy was there to Eddie Hinton, Eddie Hinton. He could play that get popular just mom. Thank you. Thank you. That. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. They would put me in Eddie, one glass, box and put him in another glass box. I didn't understand why but we were in glass, boxes and what, what really got to me with that? Those guys. I'm the senior thing, it's and create new stuff, and, and all of a sudden you're things. Eight o'clock is over as job doing may was we're going home as. I'm not finished maybe to finish Tamar as from from one to eight that's what they at eight o'clock. The session is one with the style. They were doing so many sessions of that point, everybody wanted to record with and Paul Simon was down there. Yeah. Stones. You know. So it was just they were just cranking them out. Yeah. But that was probably the best thing for them to do to get outta hit clear. The heads and come back next day who, but that hurt me. It would have been good. If I had a little tape recorder go on. I would have had what I did you know, but I had start all over the next match. If you had an iphone back then. Bet. It had to be fascinating to pops in and your siblings and yourself that these artists from this other world, you know, the folk musicians. The rock artists listening to your music, like Dylan was telling stories about listening staple singers on radio station. Yeah. When he was a kid and bass struck by how different you sounded and it really struck him and the members of the band and John Fogarty, basically saying I ripped pops off for half the tireless play. Right cooter. All these artists who are huge fans of with the staple singers were doing. I was in the Grammy pops and ride coup. Got this, this Grammy. I didn't know who I grew men KoKo Taylor and pops into goven Khuda got him said, thank you for this. I think puff Staples. He taught me. I said that you taught him. He say he didn't mean to me. But you're right. It is really an honor is really makes you feel good that these people were listening to us. We didn't know what he does. He's mavis. She says younger conlow tape it with this rocket slight. I don't wanna meet him. He's a dangerous man. Remember that verse? He this is Bob. Dylan in may.

Hurts and all. Slime the family stone was disc jockey, and he would play on us. We can do. I. The bank. Once you've got done with stacks sex folded, you guys continued your career. Are you had your biggest hit do it again? Yes. And that's not exactly a gospel song now. Nut kind of like another side of the gosh. Saturday night song. Yes. Sunday. Morning stuff. That's right. How did this come together? What that song that's come from Curtis Mayfield and see Curtis policy dollas. Okay, Kurt is doing the soundtrack for this movie less dude, again, he want us to stay so all right? We're glad to sing a soundtrack for movie we get into studio, and courtesy gave him apart to it.

Welcome back to sound opinions. I'm Jim dear got us might partner is Gregg Kat. And we are talking the life and career of the inevitable, Mavis Staples. She is enjoying a solo career today, that's as strong as it's ever been her latest album. We get by is a strong one. She's performed alongside other stars from a variety of John rouse and always holds her own, but the idea of being solo artist did not come naturally to Mavis despite her undeniable star power that charisma, she's very self effacing after the staple. Singers signed stacks records in nineteen sixty eight the next year. The label tried to launch a solo career for Mavis the first self titled album was recorded with Steve cropper, and was followed up by only the lonely in nineteen seventy. You do. You're as good as those records are, and stacks was trying to fashion her as competition for her friend Retha Franklin at that time, a solo act they weren't really huge success. They didn't sink a lot of promotional money into marketing, those records and after that, maybe it didn't really seem interested in being a solo artist. So I asked her about her reluctance to go, it alone after that, Steve cropper told me said, you know, may his heart. She just that was not where she wanted to be. I can tell she was not ready for this moment said he saw you a few years ago again. She goes, she's ready for this. Fast. Gone. Sean. What change? I mean, it was just a simple case. There was no other option. But you seem very comfortable for the first time being out there as maybe Staples as opposed to maybe Staples of the staple singers, and that was it a grid that was no option as long as there were staple. Singers, I was going to be a staple singer. And I never wanted to go solo. I was a kid that people were often millions for me to, to, to still the teenager. And that is I had made this on crime. Check your saw me cry. He. Desi may people wanna pay you mean dollars. Sing by yourself. You wanna same by yourself. I say, no, sir. No, I'm a home person. And plus I would have been scared to death by myself. No. My family has always been my security, you know it just wasn't in me at might better singer with I like I like the background I fought bad. He wanted me to sing lead when, when Purvis was singing, the pros, voice changed overnight and makers, you're gonna have to say, I was a baritone thing when we first and I said that I don't want Sealey. I thought the baritone was the prettiest voice in the background his mayor, you can sing. The has ended lows Purves can't get Hannibal. So you have the same the lead. And I said, no daddy. Bob at a little little piece of belt, he cut by the side of the rule. And he kept him. Maybe you saying leave he leaning for that little mail. And I saw he would. I said, okay, daddy, okay. Okay, how saying and that's when I started singing lead something that I really want to say. Sometimes things just won't go away. To when the sky tres grade tomorrow is. Two thousand sixteen living on a high note, the extraordinary contributions of the songwriters who wanted to write for your voice. Right. You know what nothing else would bring together a group as diverse as Nico case aloe black mic cave. You know and and and Meryl garbage from tune yards. Him in the bus together. Right. Yeah, yeah. And they all wanted to write for you. They all wanted to write and Merle. I just heard me when she's in her herbs net who going to do it, if I don't do it, you know. And she's I in her demo you know, Todd. They say me. Fire? The. Would minimal choice. Action. I was just so honored really makes you feel good. And I talked to a lot of the Mon phone, the head and the hearts, just little kids, it really made me feel good. They were just so shy to talk to me. I'll miss. I believe it. Chad komo. Yeah. My this was a food with my money. Lost every day. The sun stopped shining. It rained all the time. Did set me back some war? But I live. Get over. Losing. Maybe let me ask a series and sort of sad question, though, you never had a family of your own. No children, no one one brief marriage. You know you were so devoted to the Staples. Family, your brothers and sisters, and your dad. Do you feel like you lost anything in your own life? Did music steal something from you being so singlemindedly dedicated on? No, no. I and that that was that was a part of my, my divorce. My husband wanted me to stop singing and. No way. I was going to stop singing. I would sing and years for years before I met him, you know, and singing was my life. It's what I love to do. I love singing love you. See, you got to, you know, and that, that ended it I I was married in nineteen sixty four and. By nineteen seventy. I just feel free to sing, you know, nothing to stop. No, no me back on my own. So you got to do what you wanted your whole life. Okay. Exactly. And I won't be singing to you guys. Stiller's no more air. No more air. When you. Looking. Well, I would have never thought that you would outlive. Prince? You weren't with him. Oh Lord, I didn't need. I know. Who would think that that was the shock of my life that was? You know, an I sometimes I still can't believe it. I was my family was part of my family was prince really weird or how much of that was an act was weird. Believe it. Yeah, Brentwood, we're different. That's impress when do you sleep? We come in the studio and we leave our daylight, always catch me up. You know, another day Mavis sleeping a waste of time. Okay. Done, but understood he would wear, but I understood and as a heat break-up to he, he loosened up and he was just so he just wanted to he was full of. Jokes. You know, he, he was he was comical to press. Look visit as just have some this feeling but oh, Lord. Here's the sweetest kid while you soften them up. Because when I saw last time I saw him, he started talking about the letters you wrote to him when you were starting to record together, and you're telling him about your life, so that he had something to write about because you were worried that this guy wasn't going to communicate with you, anyway. And he's still talks about those letters, and he said that you were, like a, a mom to him. You know, he came out to meet me at the shrine and the. I told my sisters, I won't be cool when this guy by talking about how cool is as will be cool. He walked up toward me, and this little, white suit, and cool when out window. Doing my mom mom wants me to kiss you for her prince. He gave misty. He's saying kiss me on this tied through may was for us. Yeah. Okay. But, but when I saw he wasn't gonna talk to me to smile and role is big is, you know, and as a right to him, I was writing him thirteen and fourteen pays legal pad letters and started from when I was a little girl, I love to go to Sunday school. My mother would trust me, my little cute dress and shoes. I have my purse and every song that he wrote for me has something from my letters in there. That's all. And. Blood is an entire, we wouldn't church shoulder son demoing all dressed up looking, my fine, the spirit came without a warning intoxicated, this whole life Hawaiian, you know, and it is a message zone.

S2 E9: Hanging By A Moment with Xavier Dolan

"Active of two black gay men adulting Philadelphia. These ex-boyfriends turned best friends are not afraid to present their contrasting opinions of pop culture relationships hi listeners if you like chosen family you should check out category is hosted by Justin Beddis Maurice Smith category is speaks from the unique had helped me do that well chosen family hi Trina and it has certainly brought me closer to the people that I really love that have helped me get rid of the bullshit the friends the friendships like instant movie star but more than a movie star because he also wrote and directed it yeah at nineteen years old and he funded through his Albert King savings basically and then he wrote directly to the programming director of can to have his film featured which to me is still quite impressive out now ten years is Queer Francophone out there in the world so I of course as a francophone gay men in all of us I heard of him his film was called Gee man I killed my mother and I remember that time and in every Montreal Quebec I can tell you in which way I'm becoming more and more of myself and how success has made it easier for me because that's just so long to tell you all I was before and all I am now the newspaper TV show everyone was raving about him talking about his standing ovation at Khan and for me it was really witnessing the birth of this Thomas we have been waiting for this day for a long time on chosen family we're ten minutes away from speaking to actor writer director the line and it's this is podcast own I have been becoming more and more of who okay with that but when I look at you know people in their like early twenties now like even if you're doing great stuff like I can't admire them too embarrassing Internet I never actually saw it I've seen about half of his movies but not that one what do you think it was about that film that resonated so much the relationship with his mother I mean he so exhibit is a phenomenon this year we're celebrating ten years since his first feature which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival he is that there's this like Freudian Dan Freudian there's this like Freudian undertone to the whole thing that like if you want to live your life you need to kill your mother you know John It's not Dolan or the law I I know me too I was once called it on the radio for pronouncing his name correctly I can't believe we're just figuring this medicine ten conceptually or symbolically yeah so yeah that's I film really set the tone for executives career to come and then he went back to candy you're after and film heartbeats and then he went on to direct aid films in ten years that is so insane it just makes me feel what have I been doing the last ten years of mine the movie he plays a gay teen who wants to leave home and hey him and his mother fight a lot and the mom is played by undervalues like a Genius Quebec actress in the movie the I have always been doing director script writer producer shot his first film and each night famously dubbed the French Voice of Ron Weasley in the Quebec version of Harry Potter so Quebec has a shared history with him he's a he video the sort of marrying of darkness mixed with like this is a super pop anthem and I really love that contrast in juxtaposition yeah he was life it's crazy and most of you know this piece of work maybe you didn't know he directed it but he directed Adele's hello music video which is such the Child Star right yes he was on a bunch of kids movies he was also some ad campaigns here in Quebec and he's done a lot of voice acting most the video type thing that's my favorite of his work honestly that music video combined with the song just like I mean we all felt it was mass himself very seriously and that he's pretentious artist but when you look at his influences they're like super pop and we see that in the Adele directed one film in English that hasn't been released in the US it's been released in Canada it was kind of a controversy because it took so long longer so many rewrites I mean the cat is incredible Kit Harrington is in Kathy Bates Kathy Bates and Natalie Portman and Jessica chastain who got cut from the move exactly the title I mean but I think like that's what's also really interesting about him because I don't know about the French side but I think on the English side there's this perception of him as sort of being someone who takes but also knowing that something else is possible for you from a really young age yeah I think like a lot of queer people can identify with that right I mean no something else entry all I look up to him even if he's younger than me I have a weird history with them we'll get into it originally you really don't like looking up to people who are younger can you admire people were picture was in it and it was like who is this kid like what's his deal and he just had this energy and this flare around him he was featured because we had this like streets and when he posted it it went viral I thought it was the sweetest thing and it was I relate to it like that obsessive and being attached to your favorite artists character talking directly to the camera to put his I can't be her son cliff is able to I could be younger than you and I are basically the same age so it's fine like me Hemin Gaga our lake and he went side but but not hers so the year after Jeatstream Mayer he released in you is behind me in that moment I had to be like Oh sorry guy histories calling me so I was there I was sitting actually on the stairs I don't think there were any seats the fan all the way up to having started with you and there's a little bit of that film that kind of mirrors executives real life because he said all is a death and life of John F Donovan and it's the story of this TV actor who is like a huge star and is caught having a pen pal relationship with a kid very different from Michael my mother very funny we should go for a drink and I'm like okay I to me was just like a professional encounter really and then at opened the door I estimate he was writing letters to actors was a teen tween I remember he posted a letter that he wrote to Leonardo di Caprio of which he wrote as a kid sal section where we'd profile just people random people on the street who had good style and it was just like you look like a dandy just with like his long curly hair this like is almost like a charity so distributor agreed to give us tickets to the opening and exchange of the AD page not knowing that they gave to many tickets so when we got to the opening it was packed it was sold out were halting from the magazine we can't get in and then we're in front of the theater him a bunch of questions and I I I I was like twenty five and he's really cute like he's he's handsome he's so smart film and I asked to interview him so this is kind of embarrassing because we met in the office where his agency is here in Montreal and I was since the beginning it's like you're sort of full that we met before he even releases first film I remember he was it was a Friday night just in front of the venue when I killed my mother came out to launch the Promo for the film he actually called me at the magazine and he was like can I get a free page of advertising and we don't comprador he was wearing skinny jeans you could you could tell that he had the sense of details even in his outfits as a seventeen year old right anyway so I like to think in Montreal I'm waiting waiting for that call waiting that call he and then when I tried a few times to reach out but eventually we spoke and he was like listen one iconic scene is where the three main characters are singing and dancing in the kitchen to selene the friend the plotting has a rear when he was eight and how they're saying he's like he's thirty now but like it was twenty five years in the making yeah you know you've been following him judging the wedding and imagining yourself with them and like I don't know at some like award ceremony and when he's back and I know he's back as he's been in the media Oh I think here in Montreal and I was going to see a show and he must have been seventeen or eighteen I was working as a magazine editor at the time and he was started talking to me recognize me from the magazine today when I'm obsessed over a Situa- or you know it when I'm angry or when I love something like I get very obsessive but at the time I wasn't really conscious of it and not New York Montreal people when they aren't TV on the radio you take metro like everybody else through did you do it did you book them a car we had pop out of the door and he looks at me and my friend is like you to come in I believe I had to leave my bosses the posters for heartbeats moving matching everywhere who is a story it was a love triangle between him a girl and then the straight guy they're both in love with them think that I'm kind of the forrest gump of His Holiness did in the background I mean so okay lipped out he was back in Ken for the Second Year Wall to wall media coverage his heartbeats going to be number C ready made up change the right outfit we finish the interview with an he's not there the pianist Gonzalez is on in between it's too busy and it's not going to happen God I know but I loved it in that story I'm like I'm the fool when I think back of that Thomas at twenty four twenty five and I still oh my God and that moment was such a scene and so- representative of who the segments a few minutes go by and then there's one minute left before he goes on air so we're back from the commercial break the second segment and when we start the show which is live it's really it's live in Rio he's not in the studio he's not around this I don't know where he is we start the show and the actress in the first segment we have eleven minutes to get him in story I think is the best one Somalis big film came out in two thousand fourteen it stars undervalue again that's my favorite of these for anyone listening who hasn't ever seen and they start the countdown twenty seconds fifteen ten walks in the studio five four three two one he's in the chair it really feel the energy with something special was happening it was a new voice Jalen La Salle de in the opening of the film executives because the film is in French but there's a commentary on the use of English words in the French language which I really liked I just love the idea of Savvier writing a movie that like one key Lami won the jury prize at Cannes and it even got a seven minutes standing ovation when he came back to Canada I booked him on the TV show was working ah three rivers the he's in a studio they're gonNA patch him into us and God willing this works out live like we're learning media you don't give out advertising but did you we did I went to my boss and I was like Oh this is cute like we should do something we should like I saw it as a the show he's literally like five blocks away from studio like it makes you could walk but we still send a car he's scheduled to appear in the the S. and how he does he does everything the way he wants to each samosas meanwhile I'm backstage sweating I'm getting nervous this can fuck everything that's like peak vivier it is so we're about to talk to him now they just don't call yourself a sappy of sexual never never never anyways he was flying to candidate after the interview and these like wedding come back from Kevin one of his movies mommy is the perfect entry into his cinematic universe dull moment of extreme woo that sounds mm-hmm is not really queer but a little bit but not opened makes out with girls very interesting film about fluidity friendship and even language song called the Shelter Pa beautiful we never change yeah we never changed never changed I wonder oppose the song to what's being said in that scene I think there's a meeting and and they heard me and they actually came back and said okay we'll we'll give you the we couldn't actually get face to face time with him because he's all over the province promoting the new movie so he's actually going to be joining us from a studio in twenty talk me into a tailspin and a sort of bottomed emotionally over that situation right he has nothing to do with it nothing and then the finals including a Britney Spears Song in Maxim which I believe is a first and it could be coffee when I was watching film and the open doors my friend on how they feel about each other because none of them is queer or out when his girlfriend Mata's and maxine associated that world but I wrote them a letter and said listen I don't think the reading here is is right I have a lot of admiration for Brittany and when you yes I you know the these these artists are guarded by a lot of representatives. I don't want to spoil it either but it's a song that plays this is not good you have to go back to school this shit and so you know they were hardships along the way which is good and which is normal I guess but uh doc with programming director at can when you wanted to release a kill my mother you asked and the leading actress to be in your first feature on called solvent thank Marianne and then the week of the show he's like I need a car like I need a car to pick me up where we live we don't do that where it's not La and a strip club strippers bar what do you what do you call it yeah yeah so obviously they don't want her music to be it's not only that you go after what you want is that you're not afraid to ask for what you want you write letters to actors or Britney's representatives you've got in automatically labeled as Queer that limiting to you I don't really care I'm queer so you know when I grew up all the a lot of things about myself that I loathe in that constantly questioned in doubt I've been told no so many times you know when I was handing out my first script people would say Ross candidates called Matyas Maxim Exhibit Plays Maxime He's in it it tells us tour of two childhood friends you end up kissing onscreen for a student were you always that self-confident You know what I don't even know that I'm self confident I think I'm confident because what do I think it's so interesting to hear you talk about those because they think that there's this perception of you being this person that has sort of been able to get elms that I would see all the shows that I would watch featured nothing but I don't want to sound like I'm exploiting the popularity of the word but white man do you I mean she means a lot I mean you can imagine I as a young teen and her entire world it was something that I can relate to and she's been very generous them out from Fu set that Nizhny meason waste look people spend the whole time eason can I'm obsessing they want does that tie into the way that you feel about how your work is categorized like is that something that you push back against for example when your work is just sort of the existence but promised lab but they were just exotic to me they were it was a foreign territory in which the sixty s but the one thing I was not surrounded with were gays that was not a part of my culture I knew it existed I knew the gays exist I knew what I wanted to do and I knew I wanted to be an actor and director and anyone standing in my way was a hurdle that I needed sues sort of circumvent and go around and they were very generous this this story is is the exact example of one of the things I admire the most about you I've been following you of course for ten years in New Mexico ten years after coming to Ken with I killed my mother he's back with his aides feature film his six in Ken latest film just came out I was not to venture now that I had been forbidden to my mom actually would say these things like you know it's okay to thing that a man is is handsome and it was like yeah the WB freak and I would rip them off of the my satellite TV for which I was playing with my child acting savings politics and beyond say you can find category is on your favorite podcast APP or wherever you get chosen family family of Egyptian people who were screaming at each other table and all talking you know another and I am grateful for that upbringing and having my grandmother cooked that food and tell me just hearing the story could cancel on US within the next twenty seconds multi demarche you in Orland Mateus I four we're not going to see which song it is or what's happening in the film I don't WanNa know but when that happened ice cream in the movie why Britney what she means and I would transfer it on my computer and burn DVD's of these episodes and watch them over and over again but the one thing that I never signed there were queer is it wasn't a question for me I had to survive in just do my thing I have confidence perhaps not in myself but in my ideas and in what these things and teach me stuff about her own culture and where she came from and how they had to struggle with racism you know when they arrived in Montreal in in is or queer people but just two guys trying something but there were movies were suddenly I could see male contact and male sex but these were also very then who were heterosexual and you know whiteness is not something I was especially aware of as a kid because I always considered myself although I'm actually Egyptian and was brought up Zafy a hey how are you thanks so much for doing this I've been speaking a lot of English in the past days but it should don't worry I want to start by thanking you for you people never and then eventually when I got older there were movies like mysterious skin or Tambi n where it's actually not really even a movie about Queens Intel people is really handsome and you know it's okay for men to say that but I realize all the cultural references around me the movies worshipped I tonic other shows that I binged Roswell charmed all these WBZ show that you were a WBZ head so Tom Skilling Alison thank you kiss will you said you said we should have league stories about suicide about bullying there were always tragic stories never really see myself presented so maybe for part of my life struggle of my life be with my works or being categorized as queer but I certainly don't anymore I am queer and if I tell a love story about two men I'm just saying into it or not that's one for my shrink your astrologer okay thing has to be hard to get then that also transfers to my personal life it's true that I've always been it was it's it's a phase or did you feel that pressure yourself but you know I've been with heterosexual men my entire twenties and they were ambiguous and they were trying to be gay but not necessarily able to and so but when I graduated high school you know were gay or we were straight and then they were the you know I find easy stories more boring onscreen I feel like a movie is always about a problem so something has to be wrong girlfriend so it's a bit more ambiguous why are you so interested in that sort of dynamic where you're unsure if the other person is in Ah we are cinema if you will your are so much more about ambiguity and not rigidly defining things that something that's a part of your life as well out your films you know you're talking about the media that you consumed as a kid which was so you know heterosexual so heterosexual but I think that your films even though they get labeled as do you want to see the culture move into this more ambiguous era area or at least an area where we're more comfortable with ambiguity instead of always having to put things in box make movies about homosexual people for the rest of my life they'll still be stories and movies and that's just that's just the way it is I'm GONNA sneak its costing opinions of pop culture relationships politics and beyond say you can find category is on your favorite podcast APP or wherever you get chosen family I don't know because in addition to that idea of like the unrequited there's also the ambiguous one of the things that I love about attracted to people who are not necessarily interested in me or even if they were queer were in a relationship or lived abroad are you there hi hi yeah I think saw the job the line I thought he didn't want to answer my question hi listeners if you liked chosen family you should check out category is hosted by Justin Beddis Smith category is speaks from the unique perspective of two black game adulting in Philadelphia these ex-boyfriends turned best friends are not afraid to present their control says I maybe I'm the one who's not comfortable with embiid witty because I've been living with good my entire life not my own meagrely is and we're like wow what was that even a thing because for me it'd be sexual was not an option for for I remember bisexuality was like you know you have to choose very fine so watch this is the punctuation may little stands watching chess maxim it kind of reminded me of heartbeats where you have a a man queer character who falls for their straight ISH male friend in Madison makes him maximum is not explicitly gay admits Yes has I was at the ceremony on every word that night and you read quite a beautiful note to your mom says superior you do you remember that sure I mean I I don't remember actually what I what I wrote but I remember certainly I I remember to circumstances in the yeah well all these mom characters all these MOMS they're not therapeutical for either not it's not a cathartic it was so beautiful because in our personal lives we tend to deal with these issues on a really intimate level one on one or in a family context but you work out these big issues like on the screen literally as that helped to deal with that that relationship with your family your mother has it has it helped me dealing with my own issues it's a different story but what I'm trying to tell you is I just read about women women just inspire me and when I write about mothers I uh-huh the thing is I've been asked about my about mothers and my mother for for decades now not a lot about mothers he talked I'm not putting you in that Category Ah Quebec film gala award for Mummy for best film it looks i Lou Iowa excuse by Amazon God is at least Berg alone not correct because you see the person you are the person I am today I teared up because I had my own challenges with my mom at the time drain you said in every word I write in every reply in each frame you are there we don't collect got everything off should we just pick up where we left yeah of course you want to do actually I have a story share with you is in Twenty fifteen a complex thing to be a woman already and then when you become a mother there is a part of yourself that you sacrifice are a lot of things you renounce to to be and foremost for me these are women with a more I don't want to say that you know seeing that peak the women were not mothers not complex I'm just saying that it is I've been inspired by my mom clearly but not only her some of her friends and some mothers that I've met and also the mothers of our friends whether they mean to us there's a care the an internal function with year when your children with your child that makes for very rich and interesting characters and I've always I've always been inspired by that the two people in my life that I could really tell anything to and I think what's really interesting looking at your film is that Lake in addition to the archetype of the mother there's also sort of the like really worshiping them me too I they're gorgeous and liberal and open minded and they're the first people I actually mation between the mother of my very best friend when I was when I was in high school and my aunt by the whigs of you trenice families also Egyptian and she came out to Oh my God you know it's so funny you say that because I was going to mention that you know even though I don't think that I grew up with them as closely as you did like I always felt like they were assuming they've always been and it's really so oh yeah that's great I always looked at them as like to the coolest women just like grew up augie just went this is this is like no that's two games just shut them down archetype of the man with a secret you know in the character of Matias and John Donovan and the character of Louis in it's only the end of the world the east sort of had highfield toured a lot of different things whether love or Brotherhood or family or society or or language Yeah Bulwer you feel that there is none of them no part of them in these films that they could have been made by anybody else and I make these films with all things that I don't feel like I've concealed anything from anyone also these films there are a lot of films out there that are made by p dozens and comment but not blood related yeah Nicole and Pascal tires you how are you kidding me here my second cousins you know my cousins or I don't feel like I'm secretive I feel like I've opened my mouth and so many things so Asian that it should shut up I have no regrets I've always been I don't know I I sort of thrive romantically in by that I'm not I realize that I love patterns and now there's another factor in there that's that's hard very frontal and very direct about how I feel about certain things I've obviously you know I said a lot of Shit and in time realized that I was wrong about a lot of love declaration I I mean I think I do especially if you don't machias seal shock movie clip lick if I don't have a boyfriend so there's no mystery there is it because you work too much and that's where your focus is or has been I don't know my heart and I make them with a huge part of myself and so when you talk about mystery I don't feel there's mistry because these films talk a lot about what withdraw from the equation and it's the fact that I'm someone that my notoriety is something that I cannot extract from you can't just walk into a bar it's true do you think of yourself as a secret of personnel in regards to sexuality but just do you see yourself that way do you feel like you've been really an open book hey that even if someone doesn't know me it's hard to live with someone and the lifestyle that have the travels the work the fact that will disappear do you get a sense of anonymity sometimes if let's say you go to city like New York depends Yuli gravitate toward circles I do feel like these films are my open book I may not be out there with you know the boyfriend and and talking about my private life but that's because I don't have it privately go to places where I love you know the ambiance or the energy or the music or the people the crowd and that inevitably will bring it up mad passionate love where we'll chase each other and then it won't work and I will be stranded in an airport and listen to Ernst it it is hard to have a career and do something and feel that you are fulfilled and that someone next to you is striving for something do everything by life nothing greater than writing movies when you are heartbroken or when you are striving actor in it and that doesn't Maxime unlike related because I remember some of my friends mothers meant a lot to me growing up that that that character in madame x is a sort of come out that fuck well I'm not I'm not gonNA validate for you is day I mean I don't think it's wrong no exactly I I think it's wrong I don't feel ashamed places where yes people will know who I am I'm not saying it says a crushing reality as if I were out like Sean mandates or are John Donovan era to write something that's hardly fathomable for people who have not experienced it themselves and then for the rare times where I've expe- impress someone that you wish loved you do you scream and relationships that where you characters screaming your films no I don't have a relationship so else in another in another domain and they don't feel as fulfilled as you are that makes for a lot of tension and I'm not really looking for that anyway ZAC same way in my life and I think sometimes looking to validate that feeling so when I see someone Meyer like you or like whose work I really love it's like Oh if they're like me then it's okay Lee unrequited love I feel that's why I think that already I'm not putting you on the spot it's just because I feel the our be on dating APP I would love that but I can't it's weird but it depends where you could've you it in Montreal you couldn't do in France I'm looking for romance I'm not looking for stability and relationship and selling down and I'm looking for Sion's and which it is to meet warranted that you would scream I mean this is life people in salt each other and then laugh about it and then hug each other and at least this is the and and feelings are feelings I make movies out of feelings things that I felt and the most important thing about these films are not I'm not I am not that celebrity I'm not that famous but it has rewritten my entire private life in a way oft and and always ask permission before you hit someone before you scream at someone or before you you feel betrayed or things are not always polite and courteous that that we know you know that I would only go in places that know me but I mean as a as a prescription but I feel that it's just one hundred percent right because I feel that I've been that I've embarked on this path I don't know like twelve years ago because every life that I had also some complex some people are afraid of conflict of course they're afraid of conflict with things are not always you know easy the acting they're not the sets are not the light they're not the names of the actors on the sheet they're not neither non my little stupid ideas of how he can the violent and they're toxic violent emotions and I know that that's unbearable to a lot of people that they're exhausted by that they find that exasperated I know a lot of people have said about my movies that people screamed all the time I just these are movies that have been very emotionally demanding and challenging situation there's

Jalen Ramsey, Darius Leonard, Browns talk with Mary Kay Cabot & remembering Don Banks

"Welcome to the peter king podcast ask training camp road addition. I've been on the road all week actually been on the road bordering two weeks right now going to a bunch of camps meeting a bunch of people and seeing how the two thousand nineteen season is shaping up this week i was in westfield indiana at the colts training training facility and caught up having extended conversation with darius leonard the defending defensive rookie of the year in the n._f._l. Really really interesting kid. I enjoyed that you will too and also in jacksonville met up with jalen ramsey. The self proclaimed blamed and he'll tell you if you haven't heard it yet. He's the best cornerback in football. You'll hear him say that right. On this podcast i also will do my segment five minutes with a writer from brown's camp. We'll talk to mary kay cabinet of the cleveland plain dealer earlier so before we get started. I think a lot of you probably understand who followed me over the years who know me and who've read me know that probably my closest friend in the sports. Writing business was done banks. I worked with them for sixteen ecksteen years at sports illustrated and sl dot com and don never woke up after he went to bed saturday night. He was was in a hotel a courtyard mary out of all places in canton ohio and was in a hotel on sunday morning and just just never woke up. They don't know how he died. Why he died he was a healthy guy. He was a runner <hes> so it's <hes> a bitter pill the swallow especially especially for a guy in his mid fifties who just recently after being laid off from sports illustrated three years ago <hes> just recently found another gig and started it last thursday. I'd gig unfortunately only lasted three days and he worked for the las vegas. Let's review journal and you've probably seen if you're on social media an outpouring of emotion about don banks thanks because he truly was truly was just a very very good human being and i want to tell you just one story. I wrote about him in the top of my column this week football morning in america n._b._c. sports dot com also profootballtalk dot com but i want to tell you one story about don. He was basically is one of these guys who's always thinking of other people really above of himself. He did that very often. He loved birthdays. He absolutely loved birthdays. When i turned fifty <hes> <hes> don not only arranged to get me a red sox jersey because we're both red sox. Followers not not only arranged to get me a red sox jersey of mike tim lynn who at the time was number fifty that number now is mukhi beds is number but at at the time ten years ago mike tim lynn a relief pitcher wore number fifty so we not only got me a jersey fifty commemorating my birthday but he also went to fenway park and he told mike tomlin what the story was so mike. Tim lamb wrote an autograph. Uh on the back of the jersey on the number that said from one to another happy birthday mike tomlin and so don was so delighted with that he was so excited about it and truly of all the gifts on my fiftieth fiftieth birthday. That's really the one i remember the most. It's hilarious you know a couple of years ago. He got me a mint condition nineteen nineteen fifty seven because that's a year of my birth a mint condition nineteen fifty seven ted williams baseball card and that's just the the kind of guy he was he was he was thoughtful. A always asked about your life and that's one of the reasons why you're seeing this outpouring of of emotion on the death of don banks professionally. He was the most down the middle guy i i have ever met in this business. You know he was open to ever hearing every side of a story and then he'd make a decision he did not have sacred herd cows. He'd punch roger goodell the knows one week in a column and then you know he would praise them for for something when at at the time when it wasn't really very popular to praise him in the media so good friend of mine is i record this just i just got into a courtyard in ross fford ohio on the way from packers camp to brown's camp. It's overnight on monday so wake up tuesday morning. Drive the rest of the drive to cleveland watch the browns continue the training camp tour but quite honestly there will be a piece of me missing and the piece of missing is named on banks and now my conversation conversation with two thousand eighteen n._f._l. Defensive rookie of the year darius leonard the linebacker the indianapolis colts dairies were here at training camp. Does anybody like training camp. I mean really when you think about it. It's gotta be about ninety. I five heat index today and you come out here in the middle of an indiana summer. It's like everyday is the same. Do you remotely like training camp physically no but <hes> for the team karate ship <hes> definitely i definitely enjoy that <hes> affirmed down south so this is nothing compared to anything in south south carolina or florida while trade. I always wonder we just we've on our training camp. We just did the south. We did the three florida teams. We did the saints the falcons. We did the panthers every day. The heat index was over ninety so i said to calais campbell. I said i mean this is just kind of miserable. Isn't it and he goes. It's football every summer. It's been the same for for me. He played in arizona obviously in now in jacksonville. What about you. Is it just an average average day a day like today. Oh yes especially <hes> come for south. Carolina cyclone estate somalis was pricing in the heat so then working on a form all day okay so the heat is nothing and then you come here just to have fun playing the game of football you don't. You don't even feel a hot it is. I want to ask you a little bit about your background. It's it's a fairly amazing story. You have one brother who was killed as i understand it outside a bar in south carolina. You have two other brothers who were are incarcerated. How did you not become a statistic. I'm seeing seeing both sides of the good lifestyle in a bad lifestyle. So how sad my mom was when <hes> both brothers incarcerated brother got cute also how much pain when your brother got killed seventeen. He's eighteen and what happened. Oh just i guess rump laser all time. I guess so you know it sucks especially me and him. Growing up in the same room been <hes> <hes> one year apart does my best friend saudi definitely definitely sucks but seeing my mom go through all that and then see how happy my mom's was win. My brother made it to the n._f._l. And i knew right then where i wanted to make sure their mama everything she deserved animation. She was happy and make sure that she had to fill their painting more. I want to ask you a little bit about south carolina's state because i know harry carson pretty well and you know until now and i guess still he's the legendary south carolina state linebacker. Did you know harry carson when you were there did you have you gotten to know home. Since <hes> <hes> i knew of them knew how credible mbeki was at south carolina state. I knew he was in the n._f._l. Of fame always talk about history of south carolina state but we actually we never met until at thermo my senior season and we kinda just start talking from their invited me to a lot is <hes> event so so we kinda keep that ball prague on just just try to pass down so what's the what's the nickname board pride. Yeah i mean i mean i gotta stay the mascot his board doll so we know we keep that together. Yeah what it did did he was he at all an advisor zero to you is he told janney thing that that you have kind of held close and you felt was important now me i mean he's a competitor. He's about like me always tell me that was the best fifty three all the best linebacker so we always talk tries to each other just kind of saying who had a better number that south carolina state or who's going to be the best fifty three so we always keep it a competition going but you you were. You're number fifty three but it's not because of harry carson what what why did you choose fifty-three my brother the who <hes> made to the n._f._l. As i in a phone number was fifty three and i i looked up till merge since i was a little boy and i always wanted to be like them in once i made to the n._f._l. Phil knew that it was because he is hard working teaching me that nothing would be handed to me so i just wanted to show them that much. I appreciate it oh man and wanted to play for when you were preparing for the draft. Did you have much of an idea who might pick you not at all. I mean i thought either dollars tampa bay or pittsburgh and next thing you knew and i got the call look at live a phone and say indianapolis mahaffey a happy so let's get it. I found it very interesting in doing a little bit of research for this that you were a highly criticized sized draft choice in bleacher report. They said you were one of the worst picks in the draft and i've heard that you have hung onto that okay. So what what what did you do with those words. What did you do with that story. Oh my australia <hes> and i'll put it put it on phone so every day before practice or is it on a screen of your phone it was one point and then i got tired of looking at it so i'd change it back to <hes> to my wife so <hes> every where every game i look at it and he just gave me extra motivation to go out and prove that i belong failed i can play. It was funny talking to chris ballard about you. The general manager the colts one of the things he told me was that you know at the senior bowl he would watch you practice and then the colts did an interview with you and they thought man these guys like too good to be true. He's really really good. What are we seeing that other. People aren't seeing everybody's he's talking about a maybe a fourth round pick or whatever and he said so we picked him in the second round and he said right away i got to texts from people people around the league and they're saying wow he picked that guy kinda high and so he just said i just kept thinking to myself man i. I don't think i'm wrong a- and so did you sort of feel that when you were picked and what did that feel like talking about how people were saying. There was a bad period. Yeah yes without a doubt so i mean mm-hmm was once i got pig. I mean that was i mean one of the best days of my life so i was happy but you know that once you get posted you go see everybody. Everybody have a chance to comment so always look at comments. I mean that's something that drives me because i want to see how many people talking trash about recycling proven wrong and do you ever engage h with people on social media now i just i just love the city tries talk. You do yes it. Was i mean it was why you truly believe that helps you. Yes started out 'cause pushes you because no matter how. How do you feel. There's somebody out there. They're still not gonna be satisfied with the work. That's been done so if he lost satisfied. You can say that i need to work on this so approved at good in that category and i'm just going showed that everything. You said that i can't do approve that. I can't go out and do it yeah so when you originally got here last year you're after the draft. You were hurt and couldn't practice minicamp right so you didn't have a full practice at this until your first day out here in training camp you know here. We are in westfield indiana north of indianapolis. So what what do you remember about that. I practice especially the play you made on andrew. Luck came out nervous. Amaze was first time being back on the field so i it definitely was not. What was your injury. <hes> quad. I pull mcleod k. so then going going through individual. I just wanna make everette was perfect and found. We've got a team period appeared at a tight end going vertical so is my guide and there's interceptor andrew and then decide finally says something to me and i kind of had a lotta lotta weightlessness odor is were when you're a rookie in the n._f._l. Not necessarily being there's hazing but d really have to come in and prove yourself before you get the <hes> with <hes> yeah 'cause i mean as a lot of people like other look at it as a lot of i go to schools and everybody said they're going to be this big time name and then you come in and be a bust so then when i came in i was complete the opposite i was saying that they said was the worst draft pick so i definitely had to come in and prove that i could place came in a kept my mouth shut and i'll just willing to work and after i made at one play that's when the defense that's winning coach. He was actually saying good job. Keep it up. We see that you can play a little bit so the accounted for for somebody who's coming from small school and then having people saying that you're gonna be a bad draft pig and then you come out practically do something like that it kind of gives you <hes> <hes> a lot of confidence because like i said i came in very nervous. I didn't know what to expect. I didn't know how to feel so after play kind of made me feel pretty good about myself. When did you know that you're going to start to start the season <hes> <hes> last the last week of training camp and <hes> going into preseason games and a._m. Yeah this has started there and <hes> gritted out as elf my first game against the seahawks dan the second game. I got a b and then the second game. I was <hes> you mean you've. You've really were bad against the seahawks. Yes <hes> like i i. I was terrible. I mean i had about llamas have lows. I was ms fitting so then <hes> you know you get in front of everybody. As a man you know you got a lot of pride so i took it when started looking at more <hes> kind of just stayed in playbook and kind of prove that that our great as also a deadly took it and just ran with it. You're one of those rare players that you don't watch film all day and on all night explain why in first of all tell me tell me do you watch a lot less than the guys on this team and why is that only because because me personally <hes> that first game i mean against cincy regular season the first game the first first regular season game and i i went in. I mean i watched. I watched baby six hours of film by myself. Just when i got home and drew everything up i knew the tendencies and then when i gained in a game i was planning slow. 'cause i was guessing. What are they gonna run here. What are they gonna run down. No out of formation so then i only had eight tackles and eight for me. He's not my goal. I want to wear tacos more game so then the next week. I see no what they've me. Just take the coaching but sit. Let's put the film him to decide and just re re mckee's and after that we're going on in washington had nineteen tackles and that's when i'll say okay. Maybe i'll need to watch family. Just leads to the coaches. He does play marquees so now. If if a high school kid comes to comes to you for advice or maybe a college kid your advice would be never watch an instant of film. No no not at all. I mean everybody's different. I mean like walker. He loves to watch film he. He knows exactly what what was coming. Make him comfortable right. It makes me comfortable to go out and just read my keys and go from there so it's different people but i'm gonna give them the best advice for for their ability. I'm not gonna say don't watch film you don't so you don't have to make sure let them know that you watch film until you comfortable than if you watch too much if you're not comfortable. Don't watch watch it. All are your coaches. Okay with you not watching much phil. I'm not sure i mean i don't. I don't really go walk around and advertise it. They'll go advertise it. I don't watch his film but i mean 'cause flus men. We we walk through every every day so by the time game day. I don't seem one play. Maybe seventy times so once. I get to the game on very comfortable because i don't see it all week long. I think it's interesting. How matty reflects your defensive coordinator does not care if you're twenty one or forty one. You know he's gonna play. The guy who he thinks is the best guy so and so. You're going to have a lot of young. You got an infusion of talent this year on defense fence. Tell me what it's like playing for him and am i right. Does he just not really care how old you are. He doesn't care. I mean it's always about competing u._p. Every a single day so he doesn't care if you're thirteen fourteen year event or your rookie you go out and prove that you can play better than the next guy he's gonna. Put you in there and if you're a guy <hes> who not going risk your body for somebody else to make a play. He's definitely going to put you in here because it's a team game in the scheme that we play you. Gotta be able to sacrifice your body for somebody else. That's what surprised you about last year. If anything as your everything give me give me a little rundown. Oh my i mean as much as i did. I had i was that was definitely a surprise especially coming from a small school. I really thought i was going to have to take a back seat role dan <hes> just all the publicity city and everything that's coming now. So is everything that happened wasn't surprised even being drafted. It was definitely a surprise because i mean as a kid as what you dream about dan when the dream comes to reality you know you're a complete shock. How about just the level of competition. Did you have last year sort of a welcome to the n._f._l. Moment that you were you said to yourself. I can really do this. When when do you think that occurred to you that i can do this at a high level. <hes> after the washington game playing games i mean a._p. Is one of the best buy backs to ever play so i mean pentagon planning and not allowing him to rush over one hundred yards in in just playing playing well in coverage and just doing the right things and after they gain being name a player of the week in fell. That's i mean that's a big high war. So that's what i kind of figured out that long as i can keep my head down and kibo keep working. I could be producers leave. What's your i mean your position to me. Leuke clear once said about your job. I just wanna stay out of the traffic. You know i i i wanna. I wanna have some lanes to be able to get guys. Take me into your your head and tell me how do you succeed in. What looks like total chaos out there. <hes> users linebacker manti. Someone's is obviously football. No no matter what it is <hes> the ball could be fifty yards down. Phillies hit the ball so you gotta get there by any means necessary if you've got to fight through three blocks order anything i gotta get you the ball in. I take pride in that every single play. I wanna make in every single. I won't so my my drive is much bigger bigger than a lot of people because they just a lot of people say okay. I'm going to do my job ballers away. A state of my gap knows i'm not gonna sit around and watch anybody else. Make a play. I want to go over and make the play have you as the season went on last year and it became apparent that you might be defensive rookie of the year. You were very close. Did that become important to you. <hes> did you care. How did you feel about that. Particular award that particular war award manages going in. I just you know you you want what's best for the team. I just wanted to go out every single. Play like i said just make every single play and enter the season chills forward and hopefully this year to be holding lombardi trophy but the individual wars. You really don't focus on that as much <hes> you. That's something that you feel. I golden the super bowl champion and out to the season was over cell k looking back at film. Maybe i can't be festival missile rookie of the year and of course you you want your name at the top so i'm gonna competitors so i knew that i wanted award and i was blessed to receive it. Did you find yourself sort of studying during james at all because he was your big competition for that massey when you when you plan is just like a race you so you saying both said all the time you focus on yourself you sold us. Turn start learning looking sideways. That's when you get distracted. You keep your head down and control which you can control that his outworking everybody everybody and making every single play and chills falling favorites. They follow your favorite. Don't what do you think other teams other scouts other other people were wrong about you. What did they miss about you. They just missed that. I mean they were not the reason why i didn't go to a big school. That's the only thing because if all the way to clemson or any other bass schooling drafted out have been perfectly fine. I would never been called the worst draft pick but since i went and saw carolina state nobody knew south carolina state competitions. Maybe a little low end that i think that was the biggest biggest downfall because nobody knew it and as you know the n._f._l.'s a big. You've bought publicity okay. He's this guy's pretty. High should've took this linebacker. He played it is bigger school so i just had co-managers. Just prove everything did you. You have <hes> anytime this off season to sort of appreciate what happened to you as a rookie how unexpected it was re able able to sit down and sort of appreciate it and what was that like if so it was it was amazing. Just sit back and just look at all the things that i accomplished <hes> just going back to high schools. Food is bringing back memories seeing a lot of people's wearing them fifty-three because <hes> just just seeing kids that run to ask before monograph is it was kind of surreal real because i come from a small town didn't have anything growing up and then bringing home defense rookie of the year to town that doesn't even have a stop light town less than a thousand people who i mean it was pretty big and they gave me the key to the city and the kind of think about how many people's behind me and i was more success can i have. It's gotta be a little bit bitter sweet for you. Now because you're one brother isn't there you got two brothers. <hes> <hes> who are in in prison and i wonder what is your success meant for the family. Overall is definitely the top because i mean like you said we're two bucks concentrated. One dead and people people saw my family is ok yeah. They're they're hitting the ms. Lot of people just talk about family so didn't have my brother goes to the n._f._l. And only plan for years so a lot of people were saying okay. Okay yeah they're. They're not gonna do anything they just. One hit wonders maybe so now inhabits says is actually pretty good because now mama's happy family happy in. We don't have to struggling learn more one thing about your background that i'm curious about. Do you ever sit back and wonder why me and why not them him and what happened to me different than happened say to your two brothers who are in prison in your other brothers dead al always will talk never never questioned gaza where just <hes> just control what you can control. I'm out. Thank god ever see goodell wake up just for giving me this opportunity to play the game that i love to be able to provide for my family and that's as a man never never asked why is control what i can control and that's it. Let's talk about this season a little bit. Are you one of those guys. I mean tackles as a statistic. Some people really believe in it. Some people think it's kind of an overrated stat stat. How do you feel about tackles and what is your goal. Every year for tackles are tacos is definitely not overrated. How if you don't tackle anybody. I mean it's a touchdown right so if you got to stop so i have big goals this year i mean i wanna torch. Tackles ten sacks four hundred six four force fumbles defensive player you super bowl v._p.'s. Has anybody ever done that. I'll no no. I don't think i don't think so <hes> is it. I mean that's your goal but do you think that two hundred tackles is legitimately possible for you. Anything's possible yeah anything is possible. And what do you think of your team a year ago. Everybody was thinking well l. This team is really got isn't a total rebuilding phase and now you guys are getting a lot of love. A lot of people picking you to win the division. Maybe maybe it'll be the hunted. Instead of you know the hunter the hunters instead of the hunted so i wonder how do you look at your team. How good do you think you'll be. What do you see out out here. <hes> we got to prove it. We gotta prove each and every every week <hes> i really do think we have a pretty good team coming in we have we. I have two great coordinators. He's got a great head coach so we we both know we all know each other schemes last year. You know it was the first year if everybody now we're comfortable with each other each coordinator coordinator so of course frank. I was talking about every day getting one percent better so that's what we come out and do and hell hopefully every we'd be wanna know. How do you like playing for frank reich. I love it love it. He's he's a great guy a great leader and <hes> i definitely love being on behind him so if you were to look at this season he's in the end of this season and say you know this is a successful season. What would be successful in your is super bowl champion. That's it. That's it over the stats as i take that super bowl ring everything finish as any of this so now now that you've done what you've done is a rookie. I wonder do you expect teams. Maybe the play differently to block you differently all of a sudden sudden. You're not the you know <hes>. You're not the lousy draft pick who picked to hi. Everybody now knows okay. This guy can play so what do do you expect to see this year. I expect to see some similar saying lives last couple of games last year a lot of what was happening just running the ball <hes> <music> ceylon away from me just making me <hes> russell on the sideline early tried to give me tired in maybe late in the third or fourth quarter. They're gonna run towards me to see if i'm tired or try to hallo me in the past cover so as it stands you see on film that tau team's gonna try. Try to attack you so definitely going <hes> look at that and just just keep working on data and hopefully <hes> overland gopher. You're a great example of <hes> of the words and the media and people's opinions really not mattering and he just took it into your own hands and you did it yourself. What's the moral of your story more storage this. I mean we always <hes> highschool coast. <hes> always said i remember my last last <hes> high school game he said ed is your book that you're writing your you got to pin. Don't let anybody else right anything in your book but yourself so i'm not going to allow anybody to tell me what i can or cannot do. I'm gonna just prove that i can do anything. I'll put my mind to go from her. Great moral of the story dairies leonard hope. You have a great neck. <hes> t- thousand nineteen is there. Thank you be sure to listen to chris. Simms is unbuttoned podcast. He'll be on the road with us this week in cleveland and pittsburgh and i will join him on his podcast very very soon. We're going to record it actually in our yukon denali or whatever those things are called. It's dinelli but we're gonna record that driving driving from pittsburgh to cleveland late on tuesday so you'll hear that this week so matter of fact by the time you hear this i already he will have recorded it so chris. Simms is podcast is so much fun because he is just a conversational guy and he doesn't come in in with a list of a bunch of questions. Just he has a conversation with people so <hes> please listen and support the unbutton podcast and now my conversation with all pro cornerback jalen ramsey of the jaguars jalen even a very interesting n._f._l. Career so far you have. You had a very very interesting career but i do need to ask you one question before we talk football. I was watching practice today a little pad that comes down from your back. There's a twenty dollar bill in there and at the bottom of the bill it says twenty land okay so first of all <hes>. I've never seen a twenty dollar bill on a piece of equipment before so you've gotta tell me the story. <hes> is this what my my mindset. I guess every time i go down and make some money <hes> i'm twenty so i'll be so the twenty dollar bill and i forgot what across the put twenty land over. It's been like that for a few years so i don't remember exactly but so this is not a new thing. You've you've had that out there before yeah. It's been there for four so one question about your arrival at training camp this year in the brinks truck. I need you to sort of tell me what was the thought process behind that. And how did you think did you think of it did someone else think of it it and tell me the story <hes> i knew i wanted to do something and i thought doc maybe of the idea a little while back but <hes> adidas came to me on uninterrupted came to me and and they wanted they gave me two options kind of <hes> things i could do to come into training camp and one was optional. One was the brings truck truck with a influence around here of my choice. <hes> the second option was kind of like wolford washy like very business like come up car sudan stuff and of course i i picked the brings idea i thought it would be more fitting and funnier so i picked that idea and then they asked asked me to influence our wants us. I told him davis was a comedian. Yeah we kind of collapse and went from there. What is it now that it really seems like guys are kind of having fun how they get to training camp 'antonio brown in the hot air balloon you and brings antonio brown that was that was a pretty good one so <hes> is is it a little bit of competition. Do you guys want to have somebody say now. That was the best trip to training camp <hes>. I don't think it's really a competition. I think everybody doesn't even go fine is doing but did you know antonio brown was going to do that i did not what did you think when you saw it about. It was dope. I thought it was cool. The i wanna ask you a little bit about the position of cornerback and the scrutiny the need of the position of cornerback now especially in the wake of the n._f._c. championship game when a call that should have been made against macelroy coleman in the n._f._c. championship game was missed and the n._f._l. Has now reacted to it basically saying we're going to allow now pass interference to be replay reviewable now. Give me your opinion of that now being able to be reviewed <hes> well. I understand the roles correctly. <hes> coach can challenge it correct recht whether it's called on the field or whether it's not calling coach can challenge it but <hes> i mean. This is a crucial player critical play i don. I don't see coaches just challenging it. You know passing advances all the time because you wanna get with two hundred right. I don't see them out up. Challenge flags all the time for passing a crucial moment of the game and which in that case i agree it should be a relation microscope so uh something like what happened in the n._f._c. championship game to get reviewed so yeah i think it's not bad but is well like human error with the reps and stuff that that's a real thing and i think that's why the rescue paid kind of have to trust that at the same time so i'm indifferent about it d- worry at all has there been any talk that you know assertive the jousting that you do with wide receivers anyway might get called even though that is pretty natural almost every time here in coverage every year <hes> like. I said it was very natural. Receivers probably won't flags every play and we won't flags on every play as well like office president for defense. The president's is basically but say coaches out to be very smart and strategic on how to use their challenges of the net <hes>. If it's a test now it's automatically review so. I don't think that it's gonna make a huge difference besides crucial moments of the game. I've always thought that one of the best best wide receivers i've ever seen at hiding <hes> offensive pass interference was michael irvin and he was he. He knew exactly when he could do something and he knew when all eyes were on him. I wonder how much of your play do you have to really think even crew the crew okay. How much can i get away with this crew grabbing. Are they going to allow how much i mean what uh how much is too much. How much is that a part of the cornerback wide receiver play right now. I think it's a crucial part me personally. I try gotta play pretty consistent every day. <hes> how i do and the amount of physical nascent tugging do my whole all around game but i definitely have learned some <hes> crews some referee crews better than others so i know if they're gonna let us us a little bit more physically do you study back judges and and side judges and those guys at all or not really not study and say studying yeah i <hes> from from it. I did a little familiar with yeah but i wouldn't say studying. Is there an understanding right now like when you were growing growing up in this game were their corners who you watched and you to see okay. How much can i get away with and what is is what is going too far. Who who would you say you. You learn a lot from yeah. I used to watch porn of course at ten bailey of course the west highlights and post and dion all the time at p. grievous. I'd have probably keep going from already. There's a lot a lot of guys who i who i used to watch up but <hes> i never watched in aspect alone. Can i get away with. I watched it more so it's like how can i i play the game the right way as best i can and not feel like i have to get over and to write these lewis type of stuff uh-huh yeah definitely gonna take my opportunities might get a chance to get a little edge of that. I wanna play the game right way again fair and tom skilling tyler. How conversation happens between officials and you in in defensive backs during a game <hes> not too much. I mean maybe at the start of the game a little bit if i know i'm playing a receiver who pushes off a lot on my left so watch for us on that they do that. We seem to do that almost every day to go up ramps ramps and tell them hey this guy hold that so <hes> is really up to the rally after the game consistent. What was your feeling feeling the other day when you saw that mike thomas signed for twenty million a year richest receiver in the history of the game i was happy for him and might have the same agent so i <hes> <hes> i knew the deal before it hit mainstream but a as well deserving. Do you think right now. You're the the best cornerback in football. Annoy your sure. We get paid like that. Yeah yeah well. Do you think you'll play your whole career in jacksonville last question for you so this game it enters its one hundredth year this year and now as you're going to start the next century as one one of the big players in the n._f._l. What does that mean to you for sport. That's as big in this country right now to know that as the game goes into its next century all eyes on you i would say is on me. I mean i i i do welcome myself. I play the lead level but <hes> football is different than like a bunch of other sports like basketball. There's like they can. They can be a superstar team. Kinda take over over dame general playing corner. I can you know take over side of field at times but i can't take over a complete game on offense. I kalana offensive guys nick leading other guys out there everybody else we also have to rely on safeties linebackers demand and get pressured. I can't cover for ten seconds. You know <hes> no matter how good maybe take over ten seconds so it i football is legit a whole teams for like eleven eleven so <hes> yeah it's important and i take a lot of pride and doing very very well most beloved i can rule it out but only guys to jalen ramsey have a great year and now five minutes with a writer. She's a veteran scribe was covered the cleveland browns. It sounds ridiculous for most of her adult life. Mary kay cabinet of the cleveland plain dealer so we're here on the sideline. Cleveland browns camp happy happy to be joined by. Mary kay cabot of the veteran beat writer. Who's covered this team for quite a while how many years mary kay i think maybe close to thirty now. It was a little break in between three years well that was you know and they were. They were out of town for those three years but i always say i wasn't productive during those years but i was reproductive. I had my kids during that's actually good. How many kids do you have three so yeah. The mom beat writer. How is is it to have kids and to be a beat writer and have the phone ring at all times of the day or night. You're nursing your baby and and you're on the phone with whoever it's been insane. I should should have been reality show and you really shouldn't yeah. The kids did a great job raising themselves but that's good so mary kay here we are. You're you're you're on the sidelines of almost like america's team right now. Everybody is so curious about the browns. How was the chemistry experiment going going here well. I think it's going really well so far but the thing that that i think still has to happen. I really do believe that that baker and and odell really still need to get that magic. I think they need to get that chemistry where they can play fast and it looks really really natural. Now you know odell you know missed some of the off season and he did so with the blessing of freddie kitchens but there is and i've talked to peyton manning about this there. There is no nothing nothing like reps together. You can't replace replacing. It's replacing and so i think they still need to find that i mean this is a whole new offense for odell and not not only that he was with eli manning for five solid years. It's like being married. You know what i mean. I mean you you know each other's nuances you finish finish each other's other's sentences and even though it didn't end that great <hes> you know you still know each other's nuances so i still think that they need to find the magic with each other and they will. It's coming. I mean they're both so darn talented. Tell me how his team has accepted them and how is the community accepted odell beckham. Oh he's he's a superstar here. I mean he he is. You know it's no longer l._b._j. But it's oh b._j. Here you know cleveland has replaced l._b._j. With oh b._j. So that's basically disclaimer at he's a superstar here of that magnitude. Every single move he makes is is chronicled. You know blown up. You know eh everything that he does out here whether he's dancing. Whether he's you know hanging out with jarvis i mean we are all over. It and people are eating it up. Have have you ever thought this is. The thought that occurred to me that he got so famous oh early because of that incredible catch with the giants how oh can any person especially young person who doesn't have a lot of world experience experience yet. How can somebody handle that and i wonder how how do you think he has handled that since coming here being the focal point that everybody looks. I think he's handling it really really well. There's no question that he had to wrap his brain around this trait. He struggled with it. He grappled with it. It was very difficult for him to realize oh my gosh be careful what you wish for. I'm now leaving new york city to go to cleveland okay. I mean the social. Life is a little different here so i think in that regard it's been <hes> <hes> you know a process for him but i think he's really starting to embrace it. Now you see him out here. He's dancing. He's having a good time. He's relaxed laxed the media scrutiny although it's it's large here in cleveland. It's not new york either so i think maybe he's a little tiny bit less in the fish bowl than he was but he's having his teammates. He's getting to know people <hes> freddy's giving him an opportunity to be himself and to just get used to this whole idea finishing up five minutes with mary kay cabinet so mary kay. What are the issues now that this team has to solve address <music> fix before the start of the season to be a contender to win the a._f._c. north. I think they just have to bring it all together together. They have new players from all over the place and they have a new coaching staff. They have a new offensive coordinator in todd monkey. Freddie kitchens is a new head coach for the very first time. He's only been a coordinator for eight games of his entire n._f._l. Career he's got a new defensive coordinator. They're trying to blend all kinds of fought on the offense <hes> so that's what i think it is. I think it's just bringing it all together so that they can put it out on the field and they don't have time <hes> they. You don't have a lot of margin for error there on primetime three times in the first five weeks. They have to start fast last thing i would ask you is so aw over the years. You obviously have great perspective. You've seen a lot of losing teams and i wonder everybody in cleveland is so excited needed. Obviously this feels different. Do you think it will be different. You know what there's so much talent out there that i actually i think it will be different. I do think it will be different because even though the coaching staff is new and they're from all different walks of football life. There's there's some really there are some really great coaches. There's some great minds some great experience so i do think it will be different and i think that we saw glimpses of that. In the last eight games i share now. They didn't play the greatest defenses in the world last year and they will face better competition this year but i think it's going to be different. I think they're going to win. Games and i think it's warranted. Mary kay cabin cleveland plain dealer. Thank you so much for joining me and educating my <hes> listeners about really the most intriguing team in the n._f._l. This year thanks for having me appreciate it so that's it for this week's podcast. I really appreciate you joining me. Thank you to darius leonard jalen allan ramsay and mary kay cabinet and we're very very lucky to have them and also please please please if you you have a fantasy draft coming up. Go get the rota world draft guide and the reason why you need to get the rotor world draft guide is this is not the run-of-the-mill draft guy was saying okay. Here's who we think you should draft. This is packed with insider information and the kind of things as you need to know to decide okay. Am i going all in on. Let's say for the sake of argument going all in on levy on on bill this year or am. I going to take a chance with one of the newer running backs in football. Am i going to take a chance dance with obviously taken a chance. Nobody's taking a chance was saquon barkley. He's gonna be very high. Pick in everybody's draft but do you trust darius guys. You know of washington <hes>. Do you think mark ingram is going to have enough to be a high draft choice in baltimore. These are the kind of questions that you will get some real inside information and just some insight insight into why you should pick who you should pick on your draft day so that's it for the peter king podcast this this week. It's been a pleasure join me again next week for another edition of the peter king podcast from the training camp trail. I'll join renew from way out west <music>.

Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987)

"All right here we go my. Name's Todd Mrs Gabby. We'll come back to another up soda. Pop culturing hiring where we talk about pop culture right while we talk about movies we talk about TV shows and today we were talking about one of your your favorite movies of all time because Thanksgiving all own. Why am I planning to Sweetie? Because it's the mess around. It is the best round but in what part of the movies song play when they're driving down the hall the highway and Neal Sleeping is he is and Dell is not always new. Gm Out too little Charles. Dell's trying to get his coat off. Well this is before. He's trying to get us. Coast a little warm in that car. Didn't it well. He threw cigarette out the window. It's a great song and I don't really know a whole lot of Ray Charles. They hold hold them in. High regard is one of the probably a better singer songwriter. Piano people of all time. But it's not like I bought a bunch of Ray Charles CDs that you've always loved that Song just because has the movie right right but anyways so this is a movie that's very near and dear to my heart. I celebrate this movie with two friends of mine that we kind of text each each other. The weeks previous to Thanksgiving because it's a Thanksgiving movie. You text each other before Thanksgiving. I think like what we do is like two weeks before I send send each other youtube clips or Trivia about the movie to get ready to get ready because we always watch it in our own houses But we always kind of each other in mind so shout out to Chris Hansen and Charlie download. Those are the two guys that I think like this movie. The most I mean I think my friend Chris said not only is it like the best comedy of all time and this may be overstating but he's like it's truly the best movie ever okay. Well and I. I don't know if I'd go that far. I like empire strikes back like a bunch of other kind of powerhouse movies but this is in the I watch it every year. I watched this this movie more often than I watched probably any other movie. I think possibly leak because it's become a like a tradition in our our house will. Actually we watch while we're in Seattle with your brother and we always watch it on Thanksgiving so now our girls watch it every year. So yeah I mean it's it's definitely definitely made its way into our lives. It's not just a Do can you name any other Thanksgiving moving while the girls watch home alone every year till Oh is that do they go. That's a that's more of a Christmas movie Christmas but I mean definitely like Halloween on Halloween. You Watch I watched the shining or something like that around Halloween. You know I was telling the girls the other day. The tradition that I had growing up was at spring break on spring break. We would always go see my aunt and Florida and that's when they would play. The wizard of Oz was around Easter. So I had a tradition of watching the wizard of Oz at Easter are and only because we were at the mercy of the television. Because we didn't have it on. DVD and Vhs so you had to watch it whenever they replayed it. So I always had a tradition with that And you know Elf. Yeah we have about Christmas movies. I love all critical on thirty Fourth Street. Yeah there's a billion Christmas movies Thanksgiving civic leaders like home for the holidays I think that's jody foster movie or maybe it's not maybe beyond client the wrong thing. It was I remember. It's a Thanksgiving movie because Jodi foster was the director Robert Downey junior was in it and he was like hydro whole entire time. WHO's on substance? Yeah and she knew it they were really good friends and it was. It's just that whole story tough. Shoot ah well you know. I think Robert Downey junior and again. He's so been he's been in recovery for a really long time and has done amazing job. You remember all that stuff with Robert Downey Junior. Oh Yeah and then. He found the love of his life and he did and it was her birth. How random that I know this but it was her birthday because I just saw him post something to her on twitter so anyway so to have getting back to PTA? And that's what I call it for abbreviation perspective. Active okay I just think it's a movie that fits. The comedy is second to none but it also has has a lot of endearing moments in this relationship between these two strangers. They come together in an effort to get home for Thanksgiving They're Thanksgiving dinner. And and I guess I'm just going to jump around as I always do on this show and I kind of wish I could rewatch it. So spoiler alert Doug Griffiths wife Marie. He is dead the whole movie. You know that speaks spoiler in case someone hasn't seen it honey. Yes that's why spoiler alert. Okay did you give enough time though I give a second right and it came out in one thousand nine hundred seven so if you haven't seen a fight now so sure that you deserve to get more than a second. I wish I could go back in time and see at what point. I figured out that Jack Del Griffith play John Candy. His wife was not there because I think I was pretty oblivious but they do drop a bunch of hints. They do but not in like a sixth seventh six cents way where you go back and go. Wow they were so obvious like He. He drops a few hands. But you can also look at those things. And they're very normal. Yeah like a few hits. It's is. He carries that picture of her. We'll here's the pitcher but you could carry a pitcher if you're dead or alive. He doesn't have a suitcase. He has a tr- footlocker Walker. Yes he has like a toy that's he doesn't have a home that's what he says at the end. The movies like I don't have a home so that's I haven't been home in years. He says that's one obvious hint. But on that footlocker he has like. There's a bunch of Lake Stabs if you just travels around with this so okay so let's get deep for a second. So Dow Gel doesn't have anywhere that he calls home. I don't think he does a great question. Like I can't say with having apartment or something somewhere I think think I think and this is why the movie great. I think that he is still grieving. His wife hit the loss of his wife and he doesn't want to have home hall without her without her. So it's been eight years so in eight years he's lived in hotel rooms and just been when he's a very social guy so it seems like he has friends everywhere. Yeah and when neo page enters his life he's like sweet a new friend right and how it starts art but I am reminded me a little bit of up in the air. George Clooney's movie even though he does have an apartment but there's nobody in it rate exact. He's a salesman and he's like travelled more than anybody's Mr Miles so that was one hint when he says I've been home in years. That's another another hint. When they get stuck in Wichita he says You called home. I called the brain would in right and if he is as if he is in love with his wife. As you would think the first call you make home. Yeah instead. He calls the hotel right so really subtle and nuanced. Well I guess why doesn't he want why doesn't he feel the pressure to get home to his wife. The way that Neil feels the pressure to get home to his wife right and I think Dell is trying to to pretend that he really wants to go somewhere but he's just enjoying this whereas Neil is You know they show clips of his kids. Well that's the other thing like in the whole movie. Maybe they go. They show clips of his kids at the House. But that's because neal is the protagonist to the movie right so it's like you don't you don't you think about the fact that WHO's ever point of view you're supposed to be following and we know that from the beginning because the opening scene is Neil. Hey funny business meeting reading where he's running late with fair spillers dad. Yes but he knows that he's the one you're supposed to be following so after There at the beginning of the first hotel after Doug Griffeth takes all of the towels and he's drinking beer and he smoke in and he's like making all all those horrific noises with his mouth declare sinuses or he'll snore. Finally Neil Flip Lid. He does and this. This is just a quick clip for them to discriminate. You choose things that are that are funny. Or were mildly amusing or interesting. You're a miracle your stories have none of that. They're not even amusing accidentally. Honey del Griffith. He's got some amusing anecdotes. FAURIA AUREA orders. A Gun Zeke and blow your brains out. You'll thank me for it. I tolerate any any insurance. Seminar are for days I could sit there and listen to them. Go on and on the big smile on my face. Let's say how can you stand it. I'd say because I've been with Dell Griffeth breath I can take anything so he goes on. That's just the beginning of his soapbox just tearing Delta Shreds seen so mean gene. But don't you think everybody identifies with Neal. Well scousers bells out there in the world. Okay so first of all we need to back up in a lot of ways because we need to back up this is why yes. I completely identify with Neil and I probably would have lost my mind before that moment. I would have never been and so mean to a person. I don't I hope not. Maybe we sometimes we lose our minds but but I also want to say that I. I don't know how to say this like the first like thirty minutes of this movie. Maybe I our this movie I find it hard to watch because it's uncomfortable liberally uncomfortable but I. It's so interesting because I watch it with you and I watch it with other people and you tell me about how much people love it but all these horrible things are happening like. I'm not getting enjoy watching what you think it's funny. Well I mean now I do because now I know exactly but let me just say that the for and against people who I love this movie. You're like oh it's so bad I'm not saying I dislike it. I'm saying it's not like an easy calm. Watch for me. It's kind of like an uncomfortable. I know it's worth it. You know you and I have talked on pop culturing a lot about movies that earned their ending like a Shawshank redemption and Dhingra. PTA has one of those you were you go through it with them and you. The ending feels earned. So I get that and it's part of our our family but I don't enjoy the first. I forty five minutes to this movie. I'm like really. This isn't the first forty five kissed by air. Why are you holding? My hand between two pillows are pillows. Oh boy okay so John Us. That's one of the more brilliant moments in cinema history. Okay so sets thrills like such an exaggeration. Maybe it's because I'm so used to that scene because that's the scene that every that scene and then the car the car rentals because we say a part of our vernacular like things people say. Is those czar pillows like those we. This is something you and I have grown up with and you know like that's such John Hughes Music Music. Yes it's like that makes that sound. He totally used to that in sixteen candles like where things are. Just huge. They like. It's it's bigger than the the sound effects to yeah to. Yeah that's exactly right. I think that that's just hilarious. Comedy I know and you you know it is. I'm not saying it's not funny. It's just you just said it's one of the ball. Swear to Dell have his hands sweetie between his his but between his right to billows probably just somewhere hiked up pretty close to his crotch right. So am I wrong. No no no no. It's just I've never really asked just anybody that question. I think we're supposed to two pillows or the two sides of your but right. He did have his butt crack or his legs. I think that's my question is it. Oh his legs or is it in his book because because how do you put your hand in someone bud crack right. There's there's not enough. There's not enough flesh rush but it's got to be like the thighs of his legs. You know what I think you're right I think you're right and I think this is what we do the podcast we could figure out these important things here was dolls Dell's hand and we'll never know it's just written but todd and I always enjoy the scene where they I walk into that hotel room because because they realized there's one bed and they have to like talk about like football and then because they're so they're so what is it emasculated by the fact that they may have to to like share a bed and then after that moment when they literally have to shake it off to the bears game last week Games first team shirt. Oh yeah so they have to like talk about Manley things to you know something I love enlists say this for over offer John Hughes movies everything is in Chicago and I freaking love it. I think growing up with that I never realized how great that is like that all these movies that we love Breakfast Club sixteen candles Ferris Bueller planes trains and automobiles. I think. Even she's having a baby we're based in Chicago Kogyo. I don't think John Hughes did a non Chicago type movie. What about vacation? Yup they lived in Chicago. Yeah they started in Chicago and he wrote them but I don't think he directed. Oh by Harold Ramos believe could be wrong are is the same is similar to the car in planes trains automobiles trucks ter- sure was. Yeah so Dell's car at the end similar to that rental car that they did. Yeah so yeah so I ah so fast forward to the ending. Don't want to talk about the ending because it's interesting to me Well before you go there because there's like ten things first of all that Kevin Bacon in this movie which I love Kevin Bacon because and again he was a John Hughes guy because he was then. She's having a baby which is one of my favorite movies. It's an underrated film. Did horrible at the box office but see I would love to do. She's having a baby for pop culturing because because it's really deep in the weeds. The other podcasts at Todd Naidoo Parenting Radio and talk about a deep awareness about what's most important and with your family so I love that movie but Kevin Bacon pops up and it was just fun to see him I I watch it every year but like he's so young and attractive and he's he doesn't even say a a word and I love how Kevin Bacon does that he shows up in movies like you know a few good men or like he just he just. He's just in a small role but animal house was before footloose. Yeah animals. Like nineteen seventy eight right and I'm talking about like after he was read McCormack. You're saying after he was somebody import. Yeah those shows up as these kind of weird random role. I think you said he was in this movie. Jennifer Aniston called pitch perfect and he was like Oh side character like he just says like sure. I'll take the role I I just love him for. That resent any he cured lost all their money. I know Bernie madoff already made off. I know but in doing that. They probably accumulated millions and millions of dollars. Oh God I can't even imagine what do you have. So let's talk about. Oh Oh just that scene with Kevin Bacon. The thing I was going to say was so what's happening in that moment. This is the first ten minutes of the movie. But you know it's kind of a funny opening scene and and you know Steve Martin really wants to get to the airport because he wants to get home and he goes. He's in New York and he goes outside to hail a cab and I was like man the days before uber and left like you were at the mercy and it was like what five o'clock in New York in Manhattan. Actually this is part of my part of another section of this podcast. But when he when Steve Martin it looks at his watch while he's sitting there 'cause they show his plane ticket flight leaves at six arrive in Chicago at six forty five. Because you gain our going from east to central right so at four forty five he has to make a six PM flay correct. And I actually did Google maps last night. How long does it take eighteen miles from downtown Manhattan to JFK? Or what about rush hour so when I did it last night which was after rush hour thirty four minutes. I'm guessing it's an hour. So there's he the the likelihood of him making that even if you were walk out and get a cab immediately like he really was. But here's the thing this was before nine eleven because show up for flights five minutes before this the League go through. Yeah do you remember just showing up in like people who brought you to the airport would walk you to the way to the gate. Yeah driver's license no no it. It was just and then when you'd get off the plane I remember again going back to like travelling as a kid getting off the plane and my aunt would be right there. They'd be waiting at the gate for you so it's different time But still and he did make it didn't he. He made it at like five fifty eight and for it to be delayed. Okay so are you going to talk about his wife. I didn't plan on it. But let's okay because this is the part that drives me crazy. Okay what's her name. The I mean we can know the actress too but I don't know I'm embarrassed to say I don't remember well. He doesn't refer to her by name a lot. He just calls her his wife and because she has a role because we see her face. We don't okay anyway. I laugh at the scene. Do you don't have the scene. You got it okay so play it so I don't have to explain it before I play it that music that John want play throughout. But it's really effective so anyways Oh Hi how are you. I'm in Wichita. We couldn't land in Chicago. I don't understand what to do with the snowstorm and Chicago. What's going on? Now what's going on okay. So let's talk about that. How do not understand how Wichita relating to give her breakout just woke up from the dead? Sleep okay yeah but if there's a snowstorm in Chicago if you travel all the time okay so if you were to call me and say. I'm in Wichita because of the snowstorm in Chicago. That wouldn't not compute for me. Hey be what's going on Neil as if like there's some are you cheating on me or something it's like this accusatory tone that she uses it is as if there's like Saab conspiring now the thing we don't know like it may be and we kept. I kept saying to todd. I I wonder what direction she was given by Hughes like. What did he tell her to feel in those moments like as an actress? Because is there something in the script. We didn't know like you said a lot of scenes were cut from that movie. So was it that he lied to her and said he'd be home by a certain time. Does he have a history of not following through. Do they have some kind of marital problems. We're unaware aware of. But she's so accusatory of something to me. That seems so normal. Has This weird vibe throughout the movie with you okay. So that's wife okay. What else ago? Let's see wife. Oh this is really not a big deal but it made me laugh from can suggest perspective is what we're always talking about is when they're in the airport and Del says to kneel you called home I called the meal is trying to call a hotels and I do remember everybody Gen xers. How at the hotel there airport? I am sorry honey yes. At the airport there would be a bunch of phones and around the phone would be a picture of a hotel or like holiday and all you had to do is pick up that phone rigging and it would call the Holiday Inn and so everything like you had to stand in line and wait for these funds and it's funny because you know what you said. After I said that last night you go are those. Aren't those still Bill Bayer. I still feel like they might be there but maybe not maybe i. Maybe you're at the old school but I still think they have some of those. We have cell phone on so I know in the fact you google nearest hotel could do it. Yeah I don't know I don't know and that's the thing is does your mind think they're there because you grew up with them. Yes so so I guess the rest of the stuff can come later. 'cause we gotta talk about the guy in his mice Oh yes you can't play it. His the upon rewatching it last night we picked up on a few things and while they're sitting at one of the train stations or bus stations. They're sitting at a bus station. Dan and Steve Martin in the middle so it goes down and then meal and then this random guy sitting right next to him. He's got a box on his lap with a hole that you you can see. There is to mice playing on his lap and you can see that they have climbed out of the box. There's climate around and again you would never see that on first viewing maybe not on twelfth viewing doing but why what is that supposed to give us an indicator of their kind of no-man's everything is going wrong and of course there's a guy sitting next to them with mice just walking around Tamie lap. All right so I WANNA play. This part wants to sing A to. Who's got I saw? I got one guy. One free coins in a found each one seeking there's thinking happiness grown by three hopefully flintstones made up in stone. So what's great about that. Is you think like Neil is the one who's got all of his stuff on the pulse of society and the Neal is kind of the buffoon in that moment and Dell comes and saves the day right and it just doesn't happen very often in this movie. I like it when he's like you know this this. Yeah this and you kind of hear one person class and he's like Oh okay thrown by three hopeful lovers. He's just used to all the time I got to bring that back uh-huh so yet so basically Dell is in his element on that bus. Yeah because he's with his people he's with people. Yeah and they're all sorry the but they know the songs wrongs they know the flintstones because Neil okay it's a great character development moment because like you said we say he's the buffoon or we could say he's he's so removed like even maybe from his wife even maybe from what's most important to him that it's a little deeper than just who's going to be the full. Oh it's like Dell is much more connected to people even if they they drive him or he drives them crazy. He's trying he's an empathetic Ma'am Tim and Neil is so like now. Speaking of there's one part of the movie that you said last night okay. So there's a point when they're getting on the train and Neil's Dell's like I'm GonNa go sleep by myself You del. I'll see you later. Thanks shells bomb to lose buzz. Listen his body and you said Watch watch this part. He totally talks to the girl next to him. Right and you end. Tell me what that means to you or me. I think Neil has been talking talking to Dell throughout the movie and he just wants peace and quiet and the minute he has some quiet on the train. And there's you know fifteen year old girl next to him he realizes that he can kinda go back into normal conversation and so he does that and he says you going home for Thanksgiving or something like that is just very kind of their exchanging pleasantries. But you thought that like Neal's a guy who just doesn't want to talk to anybody at all. When in fact as soon as he gets removed from Dell free free even even within five minutes all of a sudden Neil feels like oh I can I can be normal and have a conversation again whereas before that he he was tied up tight and he's like yeah? I kind of looked at that. Scene is like you know how you're in a really good mode and you just have your. You're kind of overflowing with a little more love than usual. and He. You know that girl reading her family ties magazine She doesn't it doesn't really want to talk to him but he just has a little bit of love and he's also with somebody who it's not give an inch take a mile like Dallas rate. He couldn't engage with Dell because he knew he would run with it so I found it to be like a moment of where you've seen the L. is really happy right but it doesn't last very long Thanksgiving and plus you just happy. Because she's about to be home just GonNa make and she's reading an US magazine and it says is why we love family ties. Why do we love family? Ties family task. Alex Keaton I know. Do you know I heard a interview. I and I think it was on deck shepherd and I can't remember who it was but they were talking about the fact that one of the girls I don't know if he was interviewing the girl or if it was like a daughter water of hers but she had had a daughter named mallory or something or maybe her name was mallory and they're like my parents named me after characters on on TV. And they wanted me to be really smart like these characters on TV. And I was like Mallory on family ties was not choose the DITZ. That's what I mean. So that was a parent fail. If they're choosing someone on TV they should have chosen. What was teeny others dame? Does it really matter Jennifer for Jeff. What do you mean does it really matter? She didn't add anything to that show other than other except for when she was a little kid which is brand new and young on that show cute but then as soon as she became older you are you saying she wasn't cute. She's a cute little girl right but then she hits puberty and she's just like this teenager and he's not she's she's not as endearing. I feel bad for kids who have to grow up on. TV like that. Like remember when Luke on modern family just didn't go through a great phase where there are. Can you imagine having to grow up in front of people like that how hard that would be sure. Okay so anyway but Luke I don't know the actor's name is but he's like mathematician Titian Genius Guy Yeah it's always Winnie from Doogie Howser Abe by the way now Winnie from the wonder years. Oh sorry woody from the wonder years thank you. She's also some a math genius. MIT person she is. She wrote a book about how why people should I think even girls should love math more than they do. Yeah she's very interesting. Yeah I mean and those are perfect. Perfect example says it's like in some people the ideal thing is I mean there really is no ideal but because who knows if it's good or bad but is to be a child actor are and like go away for awhile and skip some years just so you can have that right to go from boyhood to manhood or girl woman. It's a very awkward thing Eh and as we have seen a million times it can really screw you up I mean look at what Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan like. We just really messed most kids. Kids get screwed up by being famous. I know we got like Ron Howard and well and I was just about to say the wonder years What's his red savage edge? He and he's now like a director at least album really established and well thought of and he's just a wonderful dude. So here is my favorite favorite moment but just seeing that movie and it's kind of obviously not gonNa play the whole thing but let's just start here. Joker wants to race ridiculous right. Come on. Let's go let's go put your window. He wants them. It's probably the way you said for going the wrong way. All he's drunk already know where we're going. Yeah would Ainhoa thank thank you. Thanks a lot more on. That is the best sweetie. How would he know where we're going with? Neo Pages. How it makes perfect sense? I thought the same thing I'm like. Yeah Drum and there's a scene where they point the camera towards the road and the car is speeding by. And you're you're supposed to be looking at it from Neal's perspective and that is kind of the moment where he's like. Oh we're going in the wrong side of the wrong side of the road. But I don't understand why that tells neil that he's going the wrong way because first first of all think about if you have to highways a four lane highway or like you've got a median in between like initially just waking up. So he's like like there's some people over there were parallel to them. But you're supposed to be going the other way of the people parallel to you right so I think he's just like picking up on that. I I didn't quite understand that. Well maybe he's just waking up. I think he's just starting to come. It's a little like in dumb and dumber when he goes the wrong way when he says he goes was to He's like that John Denver was full of Shit is right. He drives East instead of he ends up in Kansas Nebraska. John Denver's full foolish shit and I just love hearing them. Laugh together bonding well when the car starts on fire you're in the car on fire. I gotTa play this confessed credit. I mean you could aw gave this Galvin on the counters. FINISH OUR I. Aw I can't run. A car. Was Shower Curtain Rings. Oh boy that was is about to get in trouble. Neal's credit card. So can I talk about that scene. Sure and actually there's a few moments where this happens where they laugh. Because here's the thing why I said. The first forty five minutes of the movie is hard is the meal and we're supposed to go through this with him thus the reason route difficult but he's very controlling and he thinks things shouldn't shouldn't go a certain way maybe he feels a bit entitled And then this is what happens in life like you and I were just talking about a friend. That's been having a really hard time. And you were saying he's gotten to the point where he's laughing and this is what happens to all of us when we realize we don't have control and we kind of go from like bare. knuckling it where we're pest and mad and we're lashing out just like he. Does you know to the rental car lady. The other Ferris Bueller lady and we we think it should be a certain way. We're angry and then it gets to the point where you realize life is absurd. It's absolutely absurd and sometimes it takes us a while to even with the most like difficult things like I have I've written about this number of times. About how even when I was was working at the hospital with children who were like really struggling and had emotional behavioral issues. And we my the staff that I worked with sometimes get hit and beat up and it was just a really hard job and you know how we managed. We would laugh and not the kids. I don't mean we'd laugh at the kids we would would laugh at ourselves and we had humor and we had jokes to keep ourselves from going into the dark places and this is is what we do as parents. I mean you and I do like we. We laugh or cry. You're GonNa Laugh or cry and crying. It's not choosing. Its laughter comes. Allow it because it's all absurd. You don't control things you know like you don't want I would say like we all I think most people identify with Neil because he's a little bit more quote unquote typical But then all of a sudden John Hughes who writes it. You know all of a sudden neil like in the flintstones stones bus the same thing goes for. This seem relaxed if I got my shoes. I don't care breeder foot or leave. The shoes on it must be swelled to be so perfect and odor free. You know there's plenty of things about you that bother me but I'm decent enough not to bring them all right what do I do. It bothers her name. One point a few things you play with your balls a lot. Do not play with my Larry. Bird doesn't do much ball handling in one night. You or are you trying to start a fight. I'm simply stating a fact. That's all you fidget with your nuts a lot you know what would make me happy that a couple of balls and an extra set of fingers. So here's my question. Okay Neil Neil just can't can't wait for the opportunity where Dell's like you do a lot the things because Neil doesn't think he does now. There's nothing about him as the you're we don't we don't see him doing anything. Because he's the protagonist so when Dell's like there's plenty the things you do and Neil's like sweet. I can't wait because meal. Thinks that he's infallible. that he doesn't stink rate and then all of a sudden Dell's like there's lots the things and I just wonder like He. Totally like zoomed him on that likey totally burned because Neil probably knows that is such like sometimes that kind of thing like I. I always talk about how baseball players are doing that on TV. I always bring it up. I'm like dude like we're the camera is right. You will always say to me. They have a cup on. They can't help it. They don't care that they're on TV. They need to do that. I get that. But it really is like when you're watching somebody and they're constantly playing with their cop or rearranging ranging themselves it is a little distracting. It's a little like dude. You're on TV so I think that is that can be a form of like anxiety and discomfort and like control. Don't you because baseball players do it so much like a lot of times. They're doing it at bats so you may say to me they don't care but you are APP up. You're batting so you know that cameras on you like it'd be comfortable if you're GONNA swing a round bat hit around. They're constantly trying to get comfortable. I think it's an anxious or could be they'd be. Yes but it could be some physical blitz rearranging probability. How much of that Cup moving thing or how do you think it's half? The guys are adjusting because they need to adjust because something doesn't feel right and the other half. It's probably a guitar it is like a tick and it's like one of their superstition things like I need it. Maybe it could be. Those are probably three different things like superstition movement tick and then just just you need to adjust because I pitchers and everyone who knows baseball knows this but pitchers and batters have things that they do so repetitiously and it maybe unconscious. It may be by choice because they think they'll do better if they do. These like superstition things you know but anyway so So so there's a lot more clips that I wanNA play won't because I want to talk a few things that questions I had. We talked about the six eight six six say. PM Flight so these are just as much as I love this movie. There's a few questions I have the dancing make sense everybody sleeping on the plane and the flight. Oh I guess. We don't know what time to fly. took off correct now I think he got on the eight PM. I don't know but we got off at the eight PM. What's the likelihood of everybody sleeping EP? Well when it's dark out most people they showed the cabin lights off. Okay I'll concede that one We definitely have to play the most famous scene in the movie which is when he says the F. Word Eighteen Times in sixty seconds to play that. Don't you think we have to Yeah I think we do so for any moms or dads that are listening sitting with their kids around you need to. This was the only reason this movie got an R rating. That's exactly right because of this scene So Oh listen to listen to neil page. This is why neal y St Martin decided to take the movie because he liked to see this scene and then the car scene that we just talked about plus she's good Mrs Poole from Hogan's family also. I would call her the secretary from Ferris Secretary from Ferris Bueller and she ad libbed this Turkey. Yeah yeah well I'll see you tomorrow the gavel Welcome to marathon. May I help you help and you can start by whiting that fucking dumb ass smile off your rosy cheeks then. You can give me a fucking automobile automobile a fucking. That's fucking Toyota Hugging Mustang fucking Buick. Four fucking wheels on a seat. I really don't care for the way you're speaking to me and I really don't care for the way your company left me in the middle of fucking nowhere with fucking keys to a fucking car. That isn't fucking there and I really didn't kill talking. Walk down a fucking highway and across a fucking run way to get back to you. Smile at my fucking face. I want want fucking car right fucking eighteen times. Okay so okay. How old do you think Steve Martin is in real life you feel when he did parenthood? That was our first pop culturing. Everybody nineteen eighty nine nineteen eighty seven inches two years before paranoia an parenthood. He's supposed to be thirty five but he's not always got a little kid so I'm guessing missing. He is early forties. Even though he's got gray hair Steve Martin's always been hard. It's hard to know his age because he's been great for so long. Okay so that's that's just the first thing I was thinking of is like how. How old do you think he is? My question is why couldn't he just wait for the next shuttle. Well maybe I think he see. I think that's seen and again it's not as I. That's like for example when he's walking. I think he's going to be five right. so He's like V.. One fee to. I don't like that seems like it makes me so uncomfortable. I don't laugh in that moment. I do discomfort laugh. But it's not laugh at dumb and dumber Lewis Physical Humor because you see Steve Martin just freak out agony. So that's what I was going to say is I don't think he's in a mindset of. I'm going to wait for the shuttle. I think he's done he's done is done and he throws that you know you have to take a ticket rental car and he. He's not like in my. He wants to walk back because he wants to suffer. And you know it's like when we're so pets it's like we're so piston. Someone's like let me give you a ride and it's like no I'm you gotta walk later. You're so mad that you WANNA suffer more So I don't know So let's fast forward to the okay so this it's like can it's an hour and twenty seven or maybe hour thirty three minute short. He had like six hours of footage and I would. Apparently the footage is sitting in some paramount storage. WJR and probably isn't even salvageable anymore. Because it's been sitting there answer your question I would love to see because I so love these characters I would love to see the six hour version of no. I mean you kept asking me why John Candy had a black eye. That's the other thing so John Candy has right. I hi has got a shiner and they never explain it and as many times I've seen this movie I've never thought about it until like last year when I saw it for the fifty fifty fifth time well and I told you something. I read said that on their last track which is from that truck and they are sitting in the back to the to the L. L. in Chicago that he's while they're sitting in the back of the truck. Del says something to the effect of he definitely didn't want us to sit up there or something there it's it. Supposedly it alludes to the fact that the truck driver hit him right. But that's a big leap. I know it may be. That's exactly what happened but so and so the movie goes from funny any uncomfortable sad. Yeah and hopeful an enduring. Did you read that. John Hughes didn't know he was GonNa so do that whole remembering seen. This wishes filming him. This is what I have here. He was just Steve Martin Order so so. Yeah so the scene where they're doing flashbacks and you hear in Neil's mind del saying I've been home in years. And he started to put the pieces together about his family. Yes and then he starts to think about Dow because he's kind of laughing a little bit so this is what when I saw an IMDB order to get the new ending he wanted now. They didn't say. Hey what was Hughes an editor. Paul Hirsch went back to look for footage they previously didn't think would be used Hughes had kept the cameras rolling in between takes on the Chicago train without his leads knowledge while Martin was thinking about his next lines Hughes Martin had a beautiful expression on his face and that unguarded the moment like that. That information drives me nuts. Because I want to know what the old edney was I know well. I think it's pretty cool. That that whole like thinking about Dell he was just practicing as lions and they just were able to liquidate sweet about and that's to me. That's what artists is. It's not always cut and dry linear black and white here here. We got the best. Take you Kinda take what you've got and you end up with something really beautiful and that is probably for someone like me who so uncomfortable with the first forty forty five minutes of the movie. That's a very cathartic moment. So this is the big reveal at the end. Said you were going on. What are you doing here? I don't have as been dead for eight years. Cut to where they're walking with Dell's footlocker down the middle of the street hunk to trump. Yeah it's funny. Like how else would they have ended this movie. If Steve Martin would went back and not had this reveal it would have been a much weaker movie. Maybe like how. That's the only way you could've ended. I know I will. It wouldn't have been anything would have had any funny scenes. Yeah it would have been like it would have been promoting of Neil Neil would have had ark yes because he has to start out as kind of a controlling dude who ends up being super open hearted yes and that would have made no sense so I thought it was beautiful for. I have a bunch of Trivia. Go over real quickly but I just think that Oh I know what I WANNA do. I wanted to play this clip that I found. It's an interviewer. You're asking Steve Martin About John Candy. Sit here and Kinda mourn the death of John But tell me something you remember about what you're month together doing planes trains and automobiles was the first day of shooting brought all this exercise equipment in s jogging things stationary bikes six and weights. And everything. And then never touch. Is this a coincidence. Or what and so he. He was brilliant actor especially in planes trains and automobiles. I think it was his best work. You know the first cut of the movie was four and a half hours long hours got cut out. I Like I like my wife likes me. I saw them do scenes. That are aren't in the movie that are just breathtaking and if some of those scenes seem almost too real Martin told me it may have been a case of more than just good acting on candies parts while he was a very sweet guy. Very sweet and complicated okay. And so he was always friendly always outgoing and funny and nice and polite but I can tell all you have kind of a little broken heart inside them. I read the same thing that did you. I read an article about somebody who ended up talking with him. I'd bar at a bar one night a few years after paints trains and automobiles was released. The Roger Ebert he says I came upon John Candy sitting all by himself in a hole in a hotel Barney. Already your first of all. Why would John Candy sitting by himself? You just think that there'd be but see I think that's that is especially at our age you know. That's a misconception that famous most people are lonely. Like if you're young you may be like. Oh everyone's going to be around him. You know when I see Bill Murray. He's always by himself and he shows up into ran and I'm not saying bill. Murray sad ad saying that you know the loneliest. People are sometimes the famous. The famous people sitting all by himself in a Hotel Barn New York smoking drinking and we talked for a while we were going to be on the TV show. The next day he was depressed people loved him but he didn't seem to know that or it wasn't enough he was a sweet guy and nobody had a word to say against him but he was down on himself. All I WANNA WANNA do is make people laugh but sometimes he tried to Harney hate himself for doing that and some of the movies. I thought of DEL. There's so much truth in the role that transforms the whole movie. Yeah Yeah and then that movie with ally sheedy only the lonely remember that Oh similar like lonely guy and you know. Let's talk said parenting radio for a second. Because that's there are other podcast. What makes people you can be in a room full of people and feel alone? Loneliness is not about people. It's about feeling connected to who you lar and feeling connected to other people you could be with one person and feel completely not alone in the world to be by yourself you could be by yourself in nature and realize that not feel even an ounce of loneliness because you feel connected if he did not feel connected to who he was or if he didn't feel like he had any connective. I've tissue anybody else. Like he didn't feel like he didn't have love or if he did have a broken harder if he didn't have children or if even if he had all those things if he didn't feel connected to those people football that's GonNa make create lonely. No doubt a few other random trivia had neil indulges state at the airport. They probably would made it back to Chicago just in time. Share a scene plate shortly after actor shows Neal's wife watching the news. And I think it's Tom Skilling voice and she's asleep but he's saying that the next plane just left yeah or like it's clearing Ports opening up after the credits are done. Neal's bosses still at his desk analyzing the ad so wait until the very very very very ed after the credits that guy is in. She's having a baby yes he is and his thanksgiving. Dinner is sitting on his desk which is pretty funny And this is an Easter egg after del steals neal's cab at the beginning of the movie. Neil looks down and sees. The CAB has gone in the puddle on the ground. There are two shower curtain rings. All the movie ends with a freeze frame with of John Candy with tight-lip green tight lipped grin uncle buck. Exactly the same way a freeze frame of John Candy. With the same expression John Candy died of a heart attack March fourth. One thousand nine hundred four at the age of holiday thing was he was forty three forty three years old which is is just insane. I know 'cause I remember when he died thinking to myself well he was Kinda young and now that I'm forty eight. I was like he's ridiculous. Along kidding us the young man he was like he had just begun and last but not least this is said the owner of the brain would end featured in in this film. It's now called. The Sun. Motel was arrested in two thousand nineteen charges of promoting prostitution on the premises. The Motel had also recently been decided to drug overdose dose related deaths. Ray What in not so good very well And then one other thing of this is just kind of an interesting thing they get pulled over by the guy from Lenny from laverne Shirley and Michael Keane Akin who is also. Yeah Lenny Lenny. And he's is also show. which is one of our favorite movies? He is a Wisconsin State trooper. Okay which makes no sets because they're driving from St Louis to Chicago. Oh yeah they would go through. What a colossal editing? Screw well again. Maybe that can tell you that part of the four hours was that they ended up in the wrong state eight. Maybe they overshot Chicago. That would have been funny. Gone the wrong way so I guess that's it so one thing so todd when Tanai for started dating saying he was in the olden days where obviously we had fallen. But we didn't have texting Steph. Todd would send me letters and he sat and they weren't all like love letters they were just like. Here's what I'm doing. You would always tell me about this bike trip you and Chris Chris Peak. He'd be like I've got my bike. Ready you were on the spectrum crispy decided to go to law school and the jury is GonNa help them in life at all and you would always sign it todd and then you'd say. ps Go with the flow like like a twig on the shoulder of a mighty stream drop the MIC. Which is from this movie? I didn't know that at the time because I think it was ninety. What year was that ninety three so I didn't know that but then I watched the movie I was like? Oh you're just writing go with the flow like a twig on the shoulder of a mighty stream from not a very simple So I don't know what's closing music should I do. I kinda WanNa do something nice but I don't know what it should be. Why don't you play Every time you go away all right this is the very end of the movie and the movie ends beautifully. I love the fact that the ending scene actually got goosebumps last night when I was watching it of John Candy and maybe I'm thinking about him because he was going to be dead in seven years but he has this great wholeness. It's for me it's like haunting because it's he goes from regret that Neil gets to enjoy his life if with his wife. Jean from jealousy envy and Joe's you'll be the wrong word but envy. He's envious. He doesn't regret it because it's not him right but he's just he wishes he had Marie right. So you could see the even still. The loss of Marie is still weighing on him. It's melancholy it's bittersweet and then he has kind of this gentle smile. I'm not going to translate over this podcast but if you watch it this weekend for Thanksgiving just take just take a good look at Dell so let me end on this because you said that that is the definition of bittersweet is that sometimes like at holidays were missing people to and there is we all have grief and people we miss and you can miss them and simultaneously. Be Grateful for the moment that you have. And that's what his face conveys. Thank you Steve. Martin John Candy and John Hughes such a wonderful all thing. PTA Baby Thanks for listening everyone.

And I'm Jim dear goddess this week, a classic album dissection of three feet high and rising. The debut out by Dale soul. It's an album that helped define hip hop. Golden age and yet it's unavailable to stream or download on digital platforms. We'll talk about the making of the album its importance, and why this classic is so hard to hear today. Plus, we review the latest album from the national, that's all coming up on sound opinions. You're listening to sound opinions and later in the show, we'll review the eighth album from the national, I am easy to find. But first, we want to talk about a classic album. That is not easy to find daily souls. Three feet, high and rising. Doesn't attic. The magic. Pop. The magic no. That's right, Jim and a big part of the reason why this is unavailable is one oddball sample on one, sixty six second track called transmitting live from Mars, equity, and meaty. Not limited Sedova digitally can on. Equity is great one of our favorite recurring, segments on sound opinions is the classic album dissection where we dig deep into a record that we've been living with for years that we think is an absolute masterpiece. We've been talking about doing this record the debut album by daily soul three feet high and rising for a long time. I should tell you right now that there are many great stories connected to the making of this album, one of the difficulties you the listener at home may have is it is not streaming. You cannot purchase it as a digital download you can buy the CD on the Amazon dot com. But this record is hard to find. You gotta go crate, digging and look for the vinyl. Yeah. Yeah, it's really tragic. And I think it speaks to that particular era of hip hop. What we are catching here. This album came out in nineteen eighty nine three feet high and rising Delasalle three kids from Long Island with another kid from Long Island was a little bit older principal. The producer a lot of people talk about this with reverence this period. In hip hop. The golden age of hip hop. I've heard that referred to more than once, and not just not just people, the likes of Chuck d, you know, Africa, Bomba, everybody pays homage to this record as a music fan. I was an incredible time. I remember collecting the first twelve inch singles from hip hop in the late seventies early eighties and thinking this is incredible. Stop it. Reminded me a lot of punk rock. What we saw was a rapid evolution of hip hop in the next five years. Body. Back to. Into a more sophisticated art form based on sampling. It's important to note that the idea of sampling, I was still a relatively new artform. You started to see producers working with us idea pulling little bits and pieces of music from a huge variety of recordings re contextualising them and making them into something new. So when you think about something like public enemies, it takes a nation of millions to hold us back or ultra magnetic emcees, critical beatdown or the jungle brothers was straight out of the jungle or arm. Beastie boys, Paul, he's boys. He calls with teak, which came out right around the same day. We're just wrapping up the beastie bones moon teak when they first heard daily thing were sold three feet high and rising almost like, why are we gonna bother initially? Yeah. Their their, their whole reaction was we are record isn't good enough. It doesn't match up to this one. So this record was held in high reverence because it was an artful. Hip hop record. It was self consciously artful in the way it used the samples and the way puts these angles together. So what we saw was a flowering of this art form with three feet high and rising at the very center of it. The whole discussion about hip hop seemed to change back then it was his upstart music that wasn't gonna last two something that had real staying power. That had a sense of these records, are going to be played fifty years from now. When people are going to respect them. But as you said, because of the way sampling has been viewed legally that whole idea is thrown into question. There's a large issue, here can record like three feet, high and rising even be made anymore. Well today because of the cop to the whole sample controversy, but let's introduce these fellas. I they all came from around the town of Amityville home of the Amityville horror island, remember that. Yep. You know, prince Paul real name, Paul. Houston is a DJ for an influential hip. Hop group steps us on IQ and he's producers deejays one of the driving forces. See those squall, e Portland spoon on. But I heard that. This story's fun. And then he meets through a mutual middle school music teacher pace. Master Mace Vincent, Lamont Mason, who's going to become the DJ for daily soul. He begins Mace working with Steph Asanovic and introduces Paul to his Powell's. We have true guide the dove David Jude Joe liqueur. My name has to be true, ROY, the dove true. Go is yogurt backwards yogurt. I enjoy the yoga. I mean even a lot and pas noose Kelvin, Mercer. I'm pasta knows you can call me poss- poss- is backwards, facade and nuisance. Back was the sound sop sound if you're getting a sense of high school playfulness here. I'm glad these kids were all in highschool. Paul said, I met them. They were nerds. I was a nerd, we were all nerds Paul's a little. Bit older. He had accomplished a lot with Stetson a lot being relative. Hip hop was being born he'd made an impact in this small, but burgeoning music scene. They record a single essentially on an cassette in basement, plug tune. And it winds up in the hands of several labels who begin fighting for it. Perogatives. Shame after the battle. Well. Transis stalls on. All. Not north call. Daily soul in decision that will have ramifications decide to sign with Tommy boy small but extremely hip label on the hip hop scene. At that point in the late eighties, mainly because Tommy, boy showed the most enthusiasm for them, but business, they didn't quite have their act together, these guys begin recording in the spring of eighty nine they spend a couple of weeks and it is essentially a party all three of them have given interviews, plus poll saying, you know, they would walk in each day with a stack about under their arms. These were not albums. They went out and create Doug for these were albums their parents. Right. Right. Yours, drew going back in nineteen eighty nine talking about the different styles of music. They each grew up listening to my background influence. Was my parents, listen to a lot of, oh, western. Jazz. Some reggae May's parents listen to a lot of calypso and a lot of arm be, and poss- parents, listen to a lot of jazz and some of them I you know, look at the list Otis Redding. The bark as steely Dan's Asia, Johnny cash that title three feet high and rising comes from one of the guys found dad had an album by Johnny cash. Five feet high and rising. They said there's three of us let's take that kills water. Rise. Right. Oh. Hole and oats Liberace. Billy Joel craft work. A snippet of New York, mayor Fiorello LaGuardia reading the comics as he famously did over the radio and a recording of, of a how to speak French all of this, and more so much more winds up on three feet high and rising, and then they come up with this, the Matic link which I'll let you take over because right now I think the idea of skits and hip hop, we have long gotten sick of them. Right. But nobody had done it. Well, it starts here, you know. And, and it was prince Paul's idea that, you know, put together these little interstitial pieces into this. Recording of these wildly diverse pieces of music. Let's, let's do a game show boys. Kids out there. Welcome to three feet. High rising, I'm going to ask an amount of four questions. You'll try to answer them correctly. Now you out there in the audience can answer long with them on many fetters are on a chicken, how many fibers intertwined in shredded wheat, biscuit. What the pool mean. How many times about mobile catch a flat? Now that we know the questions we'll let the contestants think them over and we'll return right after these messages. How many flat tire? I mean, they're just goofing around, you get the sense of friends goofing around, like when kids, I get a microphone, that's everybody here in public radio. I get a microphone and recorder and they make their own radio plays. That's what it sounds like Dallas all barely outta high school. They're all doing they needed to separate themselves. They understood that there was so much great stuff already happening out there that it was pointless to make another hip hop record that sounded like anything else, it was already out there because there was classics coming out almost every month, it seemed like that time. So they went far afield in principle goes, I can work with these guys. I mean he was the most experienced of the group, he recognized somebody that had been was creating their own lane. As soon as he heard that first demo for platoon. He was like these guys around something different. I want to work with them. You know, and true going on that particular track talks about the first time around you didn't quite understand our new style speak. The first time in quite understand speak dot Laurie. Fix that all grab your bag. They were self consciously coming up with a new language. I mean they were they were quoting their version of street slang on this record. They were coming up with their own phrases their own way of turning words around. So it was it was a very self conscious effort to make an artful album that was different than everything else out out there. You know, you think about the way that plug tune in was put together from Sandpoint of the recording. They went deep, you know, that, that there's a do op record that very few people knew about, as sort of a basis for that record. It was his sort of chaotic playful abstract subversive humor to the whole thing. Perogatives positively Tweety. Emme. Shame. After the battle. Let's talk about some of the standout tracks on three feet high and rising what to do when something stop digging and shoo-in. They don't know that the soul but at potholes in my lawn. From the one of the early tracks potholes in my lawn. Think about the realism of that image. You're in the concrete jungle there are no lawns only potholes. You know, this is what they're writing about. And there's a yoga Ling move in the middle of that. Nothing other than the fact that it's funny. It's surreal lease my lawn. Launch shoe had better plant traces include abet for nine one one. And when they get here. Here on the plug. One of the relies the reason concern, the slow because we come down with a case pothole. The track was about the jealousy of the neighbors guys were doing something and their, their success spawned jealousy. So this is a battle rhyme, but it's a battle rhyme. That didn't sound like anybody else's battle right? At the time original, I think the key to understanding daily soul is they were not afraid to be nerds. And I think you'd have to wait another thirty years for somebody, like, Lupe fiasco to come forward or very early Konya west to take pride in their nerd them to not be posing daily. Soul got a lot of crap for it, right? From the beginning from a towering figures like K, R S, one of boogie down productions. There was a connection there with Steph Asanovic. You know what is this hippy crap the daisy age rise? What day LaSalle proclaimed inner sound y'all? Right. But they were kids, Greg. What about the magic number? You know, they grew up with a bowl of sugary cereal in front of the television watching school. House rock. And you know, three is the magic number is one of the best of them that Matic Ruth Metairie school has rock songs. And they're happily sampling it. I don't think they're doing it as shake. I think they're doing it as this is where we come here. This is who we are. Doesn't magic. The magic. Two. The magic. Physical pasta pleasure, pleasant and breach and thoughts hot something. Humilate measure in music pot. Casualty don't do like the soul of doing actually lungs doing hip hop hustle. No rock and roll, unless your name's Bruce, even the Jennifer taught me is sort of a it's built on this whole cliche. You know, the schoolboy crush, and I'm going to seduce the prettiest girl in the school. Broken been marching with class. Jennifer. Jenny also favored penny. So odd gave a dollar. She kissed me. But he's not cool because Jennifer at the end of the interlude moves on she's dumped, this guy already realize he's not cool enough for me and just kind of, like, okay, you know. Right, right. My moment, the sun and now it's over my fifteen minutes of fame are up. Jennifer does Awami anymore, and then there's a ridiculous, but nonetheless apropos shop sticks. Interlude the Liberace choppy in the middle of that song that just kind of breaks everything up. What where did that come from? Hey. At the same needs to be pointed out that these guys were smart wasn't just all jokes. It wasn't all about. Let's talk about our misadventures as high school nerds when, when you think about a track tread water. What a just just look at the lyric sheet alone. You don't even need music to sort of get the idea that this is an elaborate, fable. They are creating here. It's, it's, it's not a tossed off piece of work. It's really a fable about ecological disaster. On the water. Babies. Message. What it was was dumpsters. You've got this whole idea of talk and fish, you know, in the bathtub talking crocodile with daisies in his hat on dubs journey across the river and the monkey. Who's talking at the end of the record is, is a fan saying, you know, you've lifted me with this record and he advises pasta news to stay the course don't, don't be swayed by what people say you are being who you are. It was almost like they were advising themselves that, you know, people are going to misinterpret, this hippie thing is daisy, h thing, and they're gonna cast as a bunch of softies, and outsiders and people who don't know what they're doing that. Don't belong hip hop. And he says, you know what don't listen to them be who you are? Well, that's exactly what happens. I wanted to mention one more song before we get to the sad, Dumont, MS record, they sample hall and oats, I can't go for that. Yeah. And in Dallas, souls, hands. It becomes say, no go. Brother. To the mother, too. So. You don't wanna wear it. No. Which is anti-drug. Right. One of the least cool things that's happening in hip hop. At that time, we have not yet or just about to have the explosion of west coast, gangsta rap, you know innumerable tales about drug dealing. We've had some of that, at that point in New York, you know, it's going to become the endless trope in hip hop forever. About after a short break. We'll dig into the story of the breakout hit from three feet, high and rising me myself. And I will also explore how the album's two hundred samples set the stage for decades long legal battle the impact of the sound of hip hop for years to come.

Just me myself. Welcome back to sound opinions. I'm Greg Kat here with Jim Deora. Goddess this week, we're digging into the history of three feet high and rising the classic nineteen eighty nine album by hip tree trio Delasalle, the breakout, hit from that album was me myself and I the song built on six samples. It's also a song that almost didn't happen. They finish the album. They turned it into Tommy boy, and Tommy boy does the record company cliche. Wade here, a single right? Give us something we can play on radio. They go back in the studio with principal takes parliament sample, not just needing. And bills is incredible track underneath me myself. And I. On the. What is? People travel. Just be much. They talk about this idea of being played by the label and being played by you know, being pigeonholed because of the way a particular record sound style is surely, our own thing, not the false disguise of show biz. My name has to be chew the dove on Jess with the gold chains. And dissolve asses kangol hats and all that stuff to sneak is we don't do all of that. We just, you know, to be selves. We we know see the world and the record companies for what they are. Right. We're moving on, and that sort of sets the stage for the next record, which was a complete one eighty they say it right in that track. Yeah. Just me myself. That's on a loan has six it's not just need. Funke delic. It's got funky worm by the Ohio flares. Aware rapper dapper snapper Edwin birdsong. Gonna make you mine by loose. Ends. And the original human beat box by Doug e fresh. Right. All of that in one song, over two hundred samples on this record. The problem is only sixty were cleared. What does that mean? This was new turf at this point the rules for hip hop. And for sampling were being written daily soul have subsequently said in many interviews, and I do not believe it's justification after the fact that they just assume the record company going to handle this and the record company, Tommy boy, did handle some of it, but they missed quite a few, including a, a little snippet of a song you showed me by the turtles. Me. Obt. ltD Sedova Disney is can on. I think the turtles were one of the mediocre wanna be being bands of the mid sixties. They LaSalle took twelve seconds of it, and looped it for a sixty six second track under the, the how to speak French recording, you know, and the turtles suit and sued with a vehemence in Ning unwarranted. They were looking for two and a half million dollars for this twelve seconds of sound. You gotta remember these weren't just clueless. White guy wanna be Beatles Howard, Kaelin and Mark vulnerable. The leaders of the turtles went on to play for years with Frank Zappa, you think if anybody would have appreciated freakiness it would have been Kaelin environment. What's more Zappa would include a bits of Edgardo Reese in his music, right? East quoting everything. From Schoenberg to Louie, Louie. You know, I never understood that, you know, it effectively has been a horrible legacy for this record ever since the reason, it's not streaming or downloadable to purchase and only remains of elible on a CD is, you know, the, the contract was also very narrow minded, you and I have written books. Right. Our book contracts say, you know, paper rights audio rights, kindle rights and any form may ever be invited. Right. You know, someday people are going to have a USB port in their neck. And they'll just stick that, you know how Tommy boy did not do that. And then Tommy boy is later consumed sub soom by Warner Brothers records. None of these companies have ever wanted to go back and do the hassle of paying samples. And I think, you know, look for shame on the artists really. You know, like the turtles for making such a big stink, you know. Like why? Can't they take a cut this kinda completely myopic legalistic viewpoint of what sampling is everybody says it's stealing? Well, you know, if you borrow a brute blues river, you know, there's one blue song, right? Right. And eight million blues men made a variation on that one blue song. Nobody sued them. You know you go through the history of pop music, everyone borrows or steals from somebody else. Sampling is just a way of Rican. Textual is in the past, and making it relevant for a new piece of music. When you think about an artist I in principle is an artist in the way. Absolutely. These samples, it's ridiculous to think that somebody would sue them for millions of dollars for appropriating a few seconds of record. The no one has thought about for three decades. And the group had its own philosophy on what it was doing with the samples. Here's the album's producer principal, followed by Dana souls. True, go the dove and Mace talking about the art of sampling in nineteen eighty nine have a creative line, you can basically use anything, for example, academic a wreck in such as basic Disneyland. Mickey Mouse record for example. Now, people may not believe it. But if you lose all wreckage Yuka, fine things like drumbeat salon. When we sample, we just, you know, just sample in just late and loop. We can turn the backwards. I mean back make the end the beginning top it up and make it sound like a totally different instrument being played actually still it's like bringing back the old old songs making old songs, new again, people like it, you know, even more. You know, you listen to the daily soul sixty six, you know, and it's like it's, it's unrecognizable the other big case was Bismarck. He got sued by Gilbert, relevant for sampling similarly. A couple of seconds of alone again naturally. Has was all the way to. Then showed that Clinton has tried to down to at the moment, I had to apply. Judge was so clueless. Not only about this nascent, burgeoning hip hop culture. There's a wonderful piece that Robert Chris out has written about that trial. Look it up online, the judge had to ask several times for the court to define for him. What are in be? Right. He didn't understand so you have this English wanna be, you know, blue eyed soul singer as this hit the difference was Bismarck. Knew it had to be cleared and Gilbert O'Sullivan had denied permission, any went ahead and did it anyway. Right. You know, but daily soul honestly thought they'd been cleared. You know that, that, that, that somebody at the company store was taking care of them. And I just think it's one of the greatest tragedies in the history of music that everybody can immediately rush to Spotify. Listen, this album on repeat for the next three weeks. Well, it's important to note that in the time that there was still a gray area here about what. How, how do you sampling? And how what the licensing rules really were because anybody could make any number they wanted say, okay, I'll let you use four seconds of my record. But you have to pay X amount of dollars and they could just make up a figure or or not or not care. And there was sort of this gray gray area for that approach to making hip hop records at the time. I mean, the licensing rules are so stringent there has been president set in these corporate eatings that to make a record like this now would be practically impossible. And this. The knockout south? We're going to unfortunately sample clearance, complications aren't the only thing keeping three feet. High and rising off of your streaming playlists further complicating things Greg, besides the clearance of all these samples is the fact that CEO and founder of Tommy, boy records, Tom Silverman was trying to shove down day Lascelles throats for their first six albums eight ninety ten split of the prophets. If those records were streamed ninety ten yeah. There are no manufacturing costs for a stream. Why should the record company get ninety percent? I suppose a portion of that would have to go to sample clearance, but they Ila soul has dug their feet in and good for them except bad for listeners. Right. It is. I think one of the holy grails of great digging now because it does sound better on vital. Oh my God. It does, right. Or even CD dignity. It'd be buying for ten cents in a way it became a. Challenge to the artists who followed because I think daily souls, legacy is alive and well, yeah, I hear it in, in artists like the social experiment. Chance the rapper's backing group, you know. Oh, yeah, Nate FOX and Nico Segal. Just say. Won't you? I hear it. Certainly a lot of what common went on to do that, at one, wonderful electric, circus record. Connect the control with me. Debasement. Bobby? Nossa cast with almost three Sabra but they'll get up last. Massive dome pet the Prodi that universal nam. Day. Bob Marley Dow feel. Ever. These ambition Frank ocean. The single. But you. Living in. The black Beverly. Domesticated, dad. Palm trees. Though Bod is Blue's pill. Keeping. Whatever you. Refusing to color in the lines and wanting to reach out far and wide. But what they've had to do is partner with musicians. Right. What you can do is play a riff, right? You know, if you are recording Aref instead of sampling riff create your own sample on a keyboard, synthesizer over, and then man, then sample that, you know, which is still a way of doing it. You know, we, we should explain for listeners because I think still a lot of people do not understand over two hundred samples on this record a similar number. Even I believe, even more astronomical on it takes a nation of millions to hold them back by public enemy similar on Paul's boutique. Right. I'm sorry. We can give you those couple of hundred records and a sampler. Yes. Show you how to use it. You are not going to accomplish what the bomb squad or prince Paul dead or the dust brothers with you know. You know, it's, it's a true talent, I don't think people people think sampling and they think about what you know, that, that puff daddy showing where he steals, half the sting song. Yeah. Breath. I know you still living. Right. Not what these artists were doing. I also think we have here, the roots of whatever you wanna call indie rap certainly part of the emerging subculture in New York of the native tongues movement. You know, the tribe called quest. Check it jungle brothers Queen Latifah, black sheep. Mc light della. Seoul was right in the middle of that. Absolutely. And when you think about the idea that rat now rap, you didn't have to be hard or nasty, you know, or street to connect. You could be positive smart abstract. Nerdy funny. You know you could be yourself. You could be anything you wanted to be as long as you create. So you get most dep- you get qualley. Fresh. Pretty feet pigging. Common, you get the whole Chicago sound from chance the rapper back to Lupe fiasco. He was banished. The pop started in the morning, one stop John GM when they said it's getting late here. Sorry, young men, there's no state, and so we kick. Yeah. You know, think about, you know the way he used sampling the way he was able to be himself on his early records back pad me asking me Jackie's, but less than black. The today show tokens. Enough. Moment of is breaking no smoking, you think about the death checks record label under. L P. Single blackmail, dark hair, dark park in the lot of them.

To get some sun. Break you. Shots play. Welcome back to sound opinions. I'm Greg caught with Jim Deora goddess, that's a track from the eighth studio album from the national I n easy to find the track is called Ryland attract. They started to perform on the road, a couple of years ago and is now serviced on this new studio album, the band for twenty years ago. Jim in Cincinnati has since moved to New York, it got signed to the beggars banquet records label in the early two thousand after putting out a couple of indie releases its breakthrough came into five alligator subsequent continue to do better, and better, the, the ban started playing front, a bigger audiences with each album cycle, the two thousand seventeen album sleep Welby actually won a Grammy award for best alternative music album, and the band toured extensively behind that record with the notion that they were going to take some time off. Instead, this film director, Mike mills. Not the Mike now from REM no way, but a director who's done movies like twentieth. Century women started communicating with met Bernard, jer the lead vocalist in the national and wanted to collaborate and actually ended up doing a twenty four minute film, based on the nationals music in turn burner said, hey, come and work with us on this new album. We feel this new energy coming across from what you're doing. Let's let's collaborate and make a record so they brought in Mike mills as the co producer, we're going to talk about the eighth national album in a second. I am easy to find, but here's a track from it. I you had your soul and some. Everywhere. You have no idea. Died when. If I. That is a little bit of you had your soul by the national from the new album. I am easy to find Greg. I hate this album with a deep abiding hatred that I have not felt for a very long time. I, I hated it so much. It's one of those rare records that prompted me to go back and reevaluate the previous foreign national records, we had reviewed on sound opinions all of which I gave a really enthusiastic burn it, or back when we had the rating system, you know, unapologetic by it. In fact, in twenty seventeen when sleep well beast came out. I was applauding the move toward Radiohead, electronic backing tracks a new depth to accompany, what has always been the band signature Matt burn injures, poetic literary lyrics. What is wrong with this record number one? It's electron IQ in all the wrong ways as opposed to the last record number two. It's a lousy with choirs. Many guest female vocalists here, including the great, Sharon van Etten. There's the Brooklyn youth chorus base seem sort of tossed in randomly. And haphazardly burn injures often compared to Leonard Cohen, both as lira Cest and as kind of, you know, the downtrodden vocalists, the sombre vocalist. You know this is like those lousy Cohen records where it sounded leg was produced by some guy high on coke. You know from the seventies disco scene. Who'd never heard Leonard Cohen before. I, I don't understand this record at all. And it's making me reconsider everything I think I thought I knew about the national. Yeah. Jim, this is a disappointing record for me as well, especially after seeing them on their two thousand seventeen tour. They had so much energy so much power. I thought they'd never sounded better this record. Sounds kind of tired to me burnin journ particular, you know, the one thing I always liked about burning was this sort of jecklin Hyde personality. I sing in this low, Bruce. Voice, because there's a seething rage, right? Under the service. And when it comes out there will go there's going to be held a pay and their songs inevitably would would would come to these kind of crescendo where you'd like get this really kind of scarifying vibe, you know, this brooding guys just, you know barely containing himself. There's none of that here. There's no breakthrough here. It just sounds kind of tired female vocalists seemed to be brought in primarily as a foil. The whole idea that, hey were were co collective where collaborative entity rather than just a band, which sounds like you know what you're pretty good band. This seems like an excuse to make sort of a mediocre album that almost sounds like a remix album. I see how this could have worked remember when Nick cave duet with Kylie, Minogue. Things that shouldn't have gone together. Right. But they did. And yet, and yet, this is nowhere near like that. I think the women actually walk away with this record. I mean, the best moments on the record belong to Gaylon Dorsey, you heard her some of her voice on that you had your soul song. There's a couple of other ones where she really shines. He seems like the beacon of hope in this record that seems like I complete Downer. Otherwise, the intimacy becomes rather wearing. I think the fact that it's sixty four minutes long and stays in that one. Very sad. Brooding intimate. We're having this conversation, male and female, yin and Yang. You know throughout the tire record that never really kind of the mole conversation ever in ever goes anywhere. It is the most radical album of their career in that they have sort of broken the mold of what the national is. And it's also the most disappointing it's a failed experiment. I tell you this whole island is boo. We were shipwrecks together. As often as possible on sound opinions, we like to go to the desert island Papa quarter in the desert island jukebox and play track. We cannot live without Jim. It's your turn this week Greg. We had so much fun doing the psychedelic paisley, underground John Reid is section last week. I wanted to reprieves it a bit with another band that I love now they were part of that movement. But also part of something else on new sound aborting the long riders came together, like all those groups, we talked about last week, the Bengals the three o'clock the rain parade, you know in the early eighties around two key members sid Griffin. Who'd been a rock critic like Steve Wynn. The dream syndicate and Stephen McCarthy. Both great singers song, writers enamored, usually of the psychedelic era birds. And the next phase of the birds gram Parsons sweetheart of the rodeo, the birds go country. Gene, Clark that whole sound are member seeing the long riders when all they had was an EP out ten five sixty released in nineteen Eighty-three. They blew my mind because I believe it was Granada. We had just invaded. They sang this song that I'd never heard before. I'm younger than you masters of war. I love this band. I really think they're underrated as one of these bands without whom there would have been no Tupelo would have been no, you know, decades worth of alternative country, wouldn't know bloodshot record that whole genre, right? These guys were there in eighty three eighty four and you know it was as, as poignant lyrically as musically. I wanna play a song from state of our union. They're nineteen eighty five out which I think sounds like it could have been written yesterday. It's called looking for Lewis and Clark Lewis and Clark the two explorers who discovered there was a west coast. Thomas Jefferson sends him out, says figure out how to get from here on the east coast, you know to, to whatever's out there, the west, we don't know right from with help from native Americans with incredible courage and fortitude. They cross the country. They tell us what America is about, right? Geographically and what this place is here's the long riders singing, in, in the height of the Reagan era. I thought I saw some diplomat hawking secret plans in the park. I thought I saw my president walking through Harlem late after dark in a world of love where they burn like Niro, you write them a check, and then you add zero looking for Lewis and Clark. There's also humoring in here too, because he imagines himself go into heaven and meeting, Tim Hardin and saying, tell tell gram Parsons about my band. The long riders it's you know, they, they were incredible ban live not always super successful on record. But, you know, they're back together. There is a new long writers album, psychedelic country, sold just came out. They are touring the country. If you never got to see them in the day, go see him for sure. And the new home. I think he's really strong. Here's one from back in nineteen eighty five looking for Lewis and Clark by the long riders on sound. That is the long riders looking for Lewis and Clark new albums out there out on tour Greg. What's on the show next week next week Jim, it's time to dig up some more buried treasures. We love this feature that we do every once in a while on the show records that are flying underneath the mainstream radar, we think, unique to here, you can download the sound opinions podcast, wherever you get such things sound opinions was produced by Alex clayborn, ion contraire and Andrew Gill looking for loosened Clark.

A now wherever you get your podcasts. On sound. Everyone's a critic. So give us a call on our hotline, eight eight eight five nine eighteen hundred new messages, Jimmy Greg. Brad calling from Washington DC, just listen to your reunion show and wonder flicked on how the coolest reunion I ever got to see which was my sophomore year of college and St Louis driving a couple of hours thing to hell with final, which go see the big star. We only a few of the member, but they got together in a couple of members in the posies reunited at a university of Missouri. Spring fling and few people scattered and we're blown away by what came sort of mini reunion. Alex Jodi had for couple years of is pretty special moment that became a CD that was released a couple years later and the one band that I would love to see reunite was actually at that show, which is to. To me. Remember still going strong? There's not other love LA between them but would be pretty incredible. Those three original members get together one more time. Thanks for a great show as always and. All that great. Raft about fans like the see ever union of ritual members x t c kind of second phase with Colin moulding, Andy Partridge day, Couric, Gregory. Terry chambers. I saw them one. I'd love to that lineup again. Also the cares. I never saw them when they were touring and they were such an awesome band. Thanks for the great work by. My name is Keith, and I'm calling from Carver Carolina, and a band, that I would pay crazy amounts of money to see get back together as a Banco jellyfish, and they were from the early nineties in San Francisco. They were amazing psychedelic pob just Queen Beatles, influence super harmonies. They recreated their stuff perfectly like this beautiful the way that they were able to do the harmonies live, and they just put out and and, and quit. And I would go nuts if they got together again, but still milk, their second album masterpiece. But just a lot of their stuff is really amazing. All right. Thanks guys. This is John. I'm listener in Alameda, but I grew up in southern California in Orange County and I just heard the paisley underground show and it's faith back to high school. I learned about dream syndicate from reading Robert Hilburn and the LA times. And when he described the band music, I had to go out and get the client and roses immediately. So thanks very much. Keep listening, hi, films. Peter elsa. Reto california. I just actually I had to stop to your show on the paisley underground. I just heard Jim de regardless very strange statement. And I'm very confused. Davis. California is not a suburb of Los Angeles. If Davis California's valet, then, guess you might say Morgantown Virginia is a suburb of Chicago.

Best Of Channel 85 Week 4 - Token On Barstool Breakfast, Dave Recaps Unboxing, & More

"All barstools. Sports will be relocating to Manhattan. We want to take it to the world. But we're trying to take the site. Prank conquer thing Internet barstool takes over the Sirius. Xm Airways what real real minor things club the scumbag you queue America the gallon shelter dictates reversal here. I believe we're funnier. Smarter better than everybody else. Who's dealing stick on the Internet by the for the common man? Four stowaways on back to borrow STU breakfast. We have large. We Have Newman's ski and PAT and beloved CEO. Eric Gardenias and a half going on. Erica. What's up I miss? You guys man you're making headlines even from the living room the new the new podcast Tokyo Pretty much talking about everything you do five days a week for only ten minutes a day It's amazing we wanna I talk about the state of Barstool man the captainship. How's everything going on? You're in it's good. I mean it's a slog. I think I'm really happy with all the content. I think the way you guys are attacking things I think Dave on boxing. Big Cats were racing. Mardi strong pinball's like the imagination that comes out of are still is I think are the single best thing about us. And so so proud about that mobbing. The content on caught up in it I think compared to everybody else. You know the sports media companies are running reruns or just basically. Just take stuff off shelves. The digital media companies are running like more corona virus articles or asking people to fund them or laying off employees. So I feel like we're still pretty vibrant and I think we are making our own fun which I think is really hard to do like I have a lot of It's hard to find something to talk about. What news cycles Kinda Darmon or depressing? So they'll really get about that you know. I sent an email last week. Like we're not immune to what's happening in business so you know it's GonNa be a tough quarter a couple of quarters for us. The advertisers are starting to go back or pretty aggressively. Putting PULLING BACK. The economy's pretty shaky. So Am I on Matt But I'm hopeful I'm hopeful we get through this in the next month month and a half. I'm excited for us to get back to the office. I think it's going to be this explosion when everybody gets back together again. Probably some good ways in some ways. I'm hoping for it. I can't wait for it. Erica with the advertises. I was Kinda wondering. Is there like a new crop? 'cause we got the sheet for people don't know this little bit behind the curtain. We get a sheet of who have is prospects. We have Israel advertisers who haven't secondary appetizers in stuff and it's a considerable she and it's gotten bigger since I started years. Ago is be sort of written on a post it now. It's this big sheet. So the quality of people who are doing the the the ad reads slight ups all that stuff we switching our lane now away from the Pepsi's of the world and trying to go to the The private mask makers of the world type ship. Yeah if you look at. There's a couple of things we're doing. Which is one. We've been very fortunate in that. We've seen a big growth in our content in a big growth in across all of our business and including our business and part of that growth has been driven by big fortune. Five hundred companies. Who are doing big ad deals and their long-term in there they take a long time to sell in close and then they're deeply integrated and it's It's a high end product right like it's a High Falutin products and we've been lucky to do very well in that business what's happening now. Is that those guys which are entirely dependent on consumer spending are pulling back and what you're seeing is that there's a couple categories that are growing alcohol is growing substantially guys. I'm like I'm living forever. I think alcohol's growing performance brands are using this time to steal share. So if you look at you look at the finance category you look at the coffee category. You look at homegoods categories like you name it it. Basically the performance companies are looking to steal share right now from the big guys and doing you know very small tactical Roi driven deals. So that's why the sheet is getting very long because we're basically very insistent that if a sales person here was making five calls a day and taking somebody out to lunch in developing a big strategic relationship at sales people used to be doing now unlike get on the fucking phone and calls me trading large. It's like how many calls you make him today on the desk. I told these guys before he got on that. I if I got an email from gas yesterday telling me that I needed to tweet. A bit Margaret twisted history. Outta whether fuck you guys. I really don't care but it seems like now you have enough time to do a little bit of a deep dive metrics on what's mix profitable in social media. Being the biggest live with my hands up saying that twisted history of drop downs. Like to tweet today or something and you send it out to me and I was like. Oh Shit get on Like sometimes switch not no excuses but we switched instagram. That's dry be out or something else. You can get pretty granular with us in our performances through our reviews and compensation yeah like. It's you know I'm actually. I don't enjoy this time like I don't find this pleasant. I find it very uncomfortable. I don't like it but what I will say about it is. We've had champagne problems as a company for the last four years. Basically like we've had problems of growth and right now we're experiencing different types of problems which is like. Hey where's the money coming in? What's productivity like? What's everyone doing every single day? So what I'm spending. A lot of time on is thinking about Sorry mom was. Yeah so what what? The problems we're having right now are is. How many dollars are we bringing into the door? Are we are? We focused on growing the brands and delivering on the performance. Metrics in front of us when you look at podcast right now. I'd casts are commuting medium and nobody's commuting anymore so the podcast industry get crushed. I think it will come back but people are move. Look at yourselves. Like you're watching more net flicks. You're spending more time in front of a desktop or your laptop. You're spending more time watching longer form content or Internet content on big screens. You're spending more time on instagram than you used to be on twitter so everything changing and right now. I need to be dairy adopted to that. I think that's what big companies are struggling with is. They don't know how to they can't move the ship that fast or the the way that they're built isn't designed to move that fast we are designed to. That's ask what we gotta do it so I don't know if that answered your question does does go on for you Erica. You said like a few times you feel. I think that it's like your job to almost protect content from what's going on the business side with the way things are going now. You Find Yourself Mixing Business and content more not so much like putting pressure on the content people but just you feel it's important to make them aware hundred percent like I used to try to keep like salespeople away from the content people are not always. I think that it's always better. If the content people can come up with ideas I think the pressures of sales in changing ourselves by virtue of what an advertiser wants is something. I've always tried to avoid. But now like look at revenues everyone's business audiences everyone's business like we the right things to hold our position and grow over time and so as a result you know like I have. I'm having probably can conversations a week where it's like all right. Here's the deal. Were down percent. What are we doing to grow? What's the angle we're GONNA GO AFTER? How are you moving to video? How do you think about integrating a brand of this nature What are you making for Merch all that kind of stuff? Adding your podcasts. At an element to your day. 'cause obviously you're you're on emails on your phone so much but you do that anyways like how adding creating content yourself changed how you go about. Your Day. It's actually a token the token has been a good experience. One is that I am now seeing things the way you guys see them. Like when an address comes in and the copies like so fucking convoluted or what is this brought up? Don't even know how to explain this like that happened to me. Yesterday I did. Do An ad read like eighteen times because I'm like I just I literally can all these words out of my out that makes note wants so one just having to see the process the way you guys see it has been really good for me. to it's given me like a firsthand look at our system of like how do we do? How do how? What's the car wash look likes? I really liked that ended. The third thing is look like I'm used to connecting in talking to people all day long and I. I really miss that. I think there's something very isolating about the time where I mean. We're basically on house arrest. Let's be honest like every Route which sucks. I felt like if I had to. I'm a person that's better when I'm busy. I don't do well. I have like a lot of downtime or a lot of free time and tend to not be. I'm better if I'm very busy. Side was looking for things to fill my day and then I was also feeling like I was reaching out to everyone at barstool which was like eventually like going to be kind of inefficient providers. Like my really gonNA send two hundred fifty emails a week like why? Don't I just record one thing for twenty minutes and then if people WANNA listen to it? They can't if they don't they don't want they don't have to Is there anything? Scares you about being quarantined? Like obviously there's no data time When we get out of this thing but we all know like a big part of Barshop drives off is fell draft coming up and then you have. Nba Season in Baseball Golf. We kinda we ride those currents right. We got a lot of those investors there anything later down the road. We should be from your standpoint from contest. Endpoint guys like us. Because we're a little different because we don't really always to drink and being dead and being hip and being funny it'd be it all like we don't have the you know the foreplay wave or or not you're not. Our time of the season actually is coming up for us because we are outdoors barbecue drinking of you know kind of the Wacky dudes is anything from your standpoint. We should be aware of Scares you from That if we if we're still in this thing come August Man. You guys may want to maybe make adjustment now. I mean I think you got any care exactly right. I think people love breakfast mostly because of the relationship. And the the dichotomy of all of you guys like you guys all hanging out with chains on and barbecues and popping champagne and cooking food in New Jersey is like that's timeless virus. That can kill that so no I worry about it just in that will sports comeback. And what is this fall? Look like we do. A lot of touring we. We're we've moved into the live events business like you of your Golf Tournament GonNa Happen. We're going to be comfortable going. What is what's second of be like so I think those are the things I worry about for breakfast. I don't I don't worry about any of that really. I think the the questions I have for Breakfast Star. Like how does the relationship evolve? How your cast of characters continue to deepen and grow out you? Continue to give people the escapes that they're looking for a way to start their day How do you become essential in that? In a time. Where like the days are all melding together were begins and nothing really ends so I mean those are the questions but I don't worry about that for you guys know what about stock central. We passed a black cat underneath. The ladder just broke Linda with this time that people. So there's a time for people to get creative time for people to get desperate right like I was just getting on instagram every night and drink before bed and telling dirty jokes just on my instagram live. Nothing to do this thing. Because I like dirty jokes rallies ever drink and making people who don't like dirty jokes angry iconic sounds like a great use of time and I think that it'd be okay just to bring some is it doesn't waste time is five minutes. I'll be in bed problem shirts but on you so between the difference between being creative and being desperate. I just want to do that this that. What are people coming up to like lackey? Shed like right. Listen Erica at were lost and I'm going to be racing snails and new Matt like something not working and you're just type in your right away now so I think we have. I think our our talent is our single biggest. Like I've put us up against anybody in terms of weird shit and we can do all day whether it's like dirty jokes before bed or ten balls and do a Gumbo machine. Whatever I think the only content that I think is not I wouldn't even use the word desperate but like derivative stuff like if we have three guys racing turtles and one guy wants to race reptiles. I'm like we already have three turtle racing showers. Let's focus on that. I don't think anyone else has a dirty joke show large. I think you'RE GONNA START. Opening my mail live a lot of. It's just like Chinese a Oh no. I think that's what I love like David. Day trading the stock market. That's what he's into. It's authentic you know hard. My take is making horse races and talking about whatever you guys are doing your thing so I don't think any I love that. I think we should keep doing that. The thing I don't think we should do is create creek duplicate content. A One soda. Now your home you quarantine house the mom life where the kids driving you nuts. Because we're all dads like me. Me and brandon our first hand kind of witnessing the miracle of MOMS and that's why we hide in our business. We don't talk to our wives that we we. Yeah we just probably you know me and the wife probably made magic sack probably a week ago in late. She's like need to lose weight like she's she's killing me. You're right now. She's like listen. I got the kid I need you to fuck it working yourself. A major lights are still on From this from your standpoint from the mom life hasn't changed kids like mom. We need you out the house. Who usually running the show. Yeah no I think the first thing you guys have a I mean you're lucky in that babies are. They're so hard they also don't do that much. Like like the people with the three year olds in the four year olds where. I just wouldn't be like my brains out. I think it's actually been great. I feel really good. I've not been home this many nights or slept in my own bed this many times in probably twenty years ago. I actually feel like a little bit sad about it because I feel like I really like. I like my kids like I'm like they're fun. We hope you do Now not always but like just getting to see so much of them has been fun like so. I feel actually really great for that. Everybody's kind of got to pull together and everyone needs their time in their space and I'm at the accommodating but You know I'll be happy when this is over but I will. I don't think I will ever get talking to Dan yesterday like I. I don't think I'll ever get this time back like this the NFL like anyone. Who has kids saying that's like whether your kids who are home from college or you've got newborns. We got some in the middle. Like you're just there's never gonNA probably not hopefully not gonna be another time like this where you're all together for this type of period by grow. There's some really good things like that. Yeah I was a my main thing when the baby was born was like being able to come out. How much going to be around. Because who is gonNA podcast off the ground and I'd be going into work and we see a lot and now that I'm here. I'll be careful what you wish for because I'm able to. Are you going to help now or says I come Outta here? She's like Oh daddy's here he gets really a diaper exactly. But how is how is having a puppy? That's a different. That's the work. We have a very whiny puppy. He's just like very he's great. He's chewing everything. You just like whimpers all the time. What's his name to be great? You can be yes and they love each other so bats finger so it's just a gong show. I mean you guys now large now. It's just the shit show. It's just the puppies are a lot worse than kids. I don't like puppies. I love dogs at like babies. I like it's like I'm gonNA sweet spot with fifteen twelve content. That's not bad. The kind of on autopilot do podfather once a week with clam and it just looks like life victim in doubt guide working as a third year olds and they come in. You know like during the show. It's it's awesome but us. We talked about all the time Eric. We try to stay positive on one of these like we had John Taffer on the show. Tap was telling us how this is never ending like restaurants or changing forever.

You got when old when you when you are looking at stocks thirteen. You've markets are down about two percent today and Davis having a good day. David you want to give us an update right off the bat. Smoking Candy Cigarette Nasal Hood. It's a wonderful day in the neighborhood. Won't you be mine? I needed a day large in its early. I'm stopping you right off the bat I turn on the market at nine thirty and I saw all little head fake bump in shake shack today and I almost called in sick as it goes up today. This Yuri actually do it right away but I watched the stock and all of a sudden. I saw forty-five handle on it and I'll say they find a cure corona virus in a fucking onion ring or something. Yeah I mean everyone was telling me last night. Futures Down futures down the market didn't open that down now it's been slumping and I have decisions decisions decisions decisions as we speak. I'm up about four hundred and eighteen grand on the day. I held all my stuff and I just made my first trade I sold. I had like ten thousand shares of Boeing. I sold some of at one. Forty eight and at that one forty eight now one forty seven. So it's what you do because I still don't hold on a second. I'm I'm just going to jump in just because you're so used to playing stuff from the from the long side you're covering your buying back to seven doesn't get fucked up so you short. You Trim your Boeing a little bit. I know so you just bought back or covered some stock around one forty eight. The stock is down four dollars today and I mean you wrote this thing on the short side. He took a ton of pain. You kept a short position and you've been covering buying the stock back on down today. So that's the first one. That you've covered Boeing. Yeah I still have six thousand five hundred shares of it so my market values about a million bucks my biggest market value by far as Lululemon. I have about five million dollars of that. This is all shorted. I and then I have two million of Nike and two million of shake shack. All shorted. I'm up about two hundred grand on shake shack today about one. Twenty five on. Lulu. I'm up about fifty eight on Nike. So it's a good day but the question now is do I buy back and get out? It'd be about a four hundred grand profit. That's huge gets me like I'm still down about six hundred if I just got out right now. A Trim about a one point two deficit in half in one day. I still think we're going down. I've been on the phone. I've been talking to my people large. I still think we're in for a bloodbath of a week. I think Boeing will be down around one forty one thirty. I think Lulu is a one one ninety one eighty nine. I think Nike or eighty and I think shake shack will be around thirty five. So you just gotTa Grit because it's so easy to get out right now large. It's so it's like dead out reevaluate come back tomorrow. But I'm not holding okay. You're holding now remember last week. We're saying this doesn't make any fucking sense. These things are going up in our face and we're not getting the good news that we wanted. It seemed like today. We're starting to get some good news but listen. Europe Europe is closed. We know you're close day. After Easter they stretch it out a little bit Asia did whatever the fuck did. I don't really care but so we got the OPEC cut. Some people said that it's not enough. Opec agreed to cut nine point. Six seven million barrels a day in May and June and people said it wasn't enough and then we won't get another step to the table again until June But still we got an OPEC. Cut the biggest one ever. We got trump saying that we might get back to work as I You know people are starting to say the right thing but earnings starts tomorrow in earnest sitting J. P. Morgan's a I kick it off tomorrow. So we're going to get our first. Glimpse and earnings are a history lesson. It's what happened you know in the months beforehand but we're also going to get like some forward guidance and I think that's what's spooking the market today and why we have the Dow's down five hundred sixty points. A LOT OF THAT IS CAT TRACTOR. By the way. Told the guy who Recommended cat tractor on Friday to call back. I don't know if you remember. We talked to hurt. I've already explained and I'll explain it again for those. Since we're on the radio they put my holdings up which Pistol Pete really fucked me with that one as you know large I am buying and selling shorting I should say on this day. Trade quickly like these aren't long-term holdings these are. I'm going to do this by trade shit once we're back to work. I'm done with us out and I go back my long-term Holdings which don't touch I've once talking and this is it's pen and it's not what I got in the deal. I bought pen with more penstock with my own money that just sits there and I'm holding it. Millions of it. And if Penn came to me today and said Hey Dave will liquidate everything you have at the price point. You got it at. Which was when we did the deal around twenty-six bucks or something and the deal was will liquidate you all cash but you can never own penstock again. I would say I don't want that deal. That's how confident I am. Pen will go way above once. It's done so I can't be longer than Penn. I'm buying and selling in lumps. I like I either. M shorting everything or buying. I'm not doing one of the other. And they put the thing up in these trolls. Try to make it look like some high of inside information on Penn which I absolutely do not. I have no idea what's going on and I'm just doing price points like. Oh this is dishonest. So that Pete. Fuck me so hard because my but it's not dishonest and I've said it before anybody WHO's trying to portray like I don't have faith in pen or I'm not the biggest basically shareholder one. I'm in this for the long haul with them. Anybody was portraying anything. Differently really should be murdered large and that without any any sense of sarcasm. Because they know what I'm doing if you listen to this show to portray portray it. Any other way is so dishonest that I should take one of those weapons I've been given and I should cut your artery out in and feed it to your best friend and then cut his audrey out right. Very and very few financial shows will have A A murder being plotted out in the first ten minutes. But we'll do that with people who touch on that and it is. It does go to show that you would say that you kind of become slave ebbs and flows you oversee a stock and you'd think that it hits whether you're right or wrong. I mean we know that you take the paid. You don't take a lot of advice and you take the pain on your own lap but right. Now I'm looking. I sold that Boeing at one forty as down and I I mean I cost myself more money. They're just I just I just I mean don't resort it. I'm short it okay. I'll be six this market. This market is going backwards in the streets. That's the eleven streets large I feel terrible. Prevalence 401K's right now. That's the eleven o'clock the fact that stuck centralized markets markets. Go Crazy at eleven twenty six on this show so I feel terrible for everybody. Yeah this apparent tell ya so when you start to you start to get to a point where these things look attractive to cover to buy back getting there. We're we're slowly getting there and stuff so I'm Gonna I'm GonNa take shake shack just for example if that's okay with you Just because I think you'd mentioned a thirty five dollar level so shake I'd mentioned people was at forty five dollars right after the opening it's now around forty one. I don't have done amick quotes. But it's around forty one. Twenty-one you're saying thirty five right just got so this is just who wants to lay the nuts on the table right now because I could get out at a very good profit today. Yes and shake shack as recently as April third traded as low as thirty three nineteen Joe. What you're asking for is NOT UNCHARTED TERRITORY. Or some sort of this is just something that happened a couple of weeks ago so it was in the thirty to thirty eight range since. Glenn put me onto this latest. Ron came out of nowhere So that one you see and it's it's not your biggest money position but you biggest share position I'd seen him this morning. It's you pick your share a position so it's one that you can't fuck around with like people hit we just hit the lows across the board and it's even from that little five minutes ago it's coming back like I think shake shack was in the forties. Lulu was at one ninety seven. Ba was now they're all they're all sort of like. I just went from up half a million to up four hundred in since that college education speech right. Have you given any thought to what you had alluded to on Friday when you said this turn in this one from a trading session to a street? Remember that where the everybody who's ever on a striped suit. They're still pulling the buttons back there. They the pinstripe suits and the mismatch callers down on Wall Street. Nara engine shops. Here's the thing. They thought they'd scare me out because bleeding pretty quick and it's like how many guys have the guts the internal fortitude to be like. I'm GonNa just hold through this even though I'm losing so much everyday in this is a bad comeback for me right now in the last couple of minutes but I tell you I stick with I just stick with the plan to stick with the plan and we also said that when you do start to engage you might reengage with fake positions just to fuck with people a little bit. Ridden there and and so. That's something I wanNA keep in mind. Eight three three eight five is the number to call in if you call in on that I'll try to repeat the questions so the stream can hear it. Otherwise Stream is unable to hear the series callers Still for some reason But eighty three eight five stole. We do have a couple of people on the line. So I'm going to pick somebody up just to get just to get an idea across the Across the board right away and I'll go with. Who's waiting the longest and that's going to be Joe from Florida Joe from Florida? You're going to be on stock central Joe from Florida. What's up guys? Let's make some money this week. Everything's going down fuck everyone's 401K's which short shit out of this market. I mean I'm already. I'm already pretty sure now. I'm already I don't for no reason. They're pumping they pump pal. It's making that money print or go off. That's the only leaving going up but it's going it's crashing right back down. We're GONNA hit all time lows. I think in this next couple of weeks caller. It wanted shock me. Call her and I'd hate to see it. I'd hate to see the look you know. Look you know some people bet the under some people bet the over power works but what what the Fed does it'd be like you bet the under a minute half time. They introduced a five point line. Like I mean they're just trying to inflate points but it's not happening. There's no good news coming out and right now. I'm short in live nation in Rick live nation. Obviously no one's going to be going to show what sound what's the what's the ticker on live nation. L. Y. Z. L. Y. Is the ticker on. Only I fall right call. So he's so he said live nation. Which is the concert. Venue today pointed out he also mentioned wreck which I believe is Rick's cabaret from what I understand. That's a strip club so people will be back. They don't care about germs but I think are going to be soup for a long time. And how are you going to have social distancing requirements at a pack concerts? I'm telling you down at least thirty let me do I. I write it down to thirty goes back with the forty. I ride it back down to thirty and by the way star trading options. I'm telling you man if you're a gambler you like options because all it does is. It adds a time a ticking time limit to win you have to get out of position. You can flip it whenever you want. It doesn't have you don't have to wait until the expiration date in your. The payoff is so much bigger. If you buy an expiring option on live nation put option that expires. I don't know a couple of weeks from now at a thirty strike price. You could triple your money. It I'm GonNa cut you off right there. He's looking into Trading options joe is giving David Idea of how to trade some options particularly in the fact that he thinks that live nation is going to thirty. He said that he also didn't like Rick's cabaret I think we've mentioned on this before Dave that you you. And I both grouped people who go to cruises on cruises and people who go to strip clubs are the two sectors of society that will take a chance to go back on cruises and go back on strip clubs if they give them a couple of vouchers on either a cruise or strip club. People going back so we'll we'll sell Rick's cabaret but he was saying that live nation so market is Israeli somewhat while Ron here but we're still long term thinking that this correction. Listen you're not you're not wishing the market goes down. You're just feeling that the markets go down okay sake. Wish wish that goes down so you didn't. When you said you felt bad about the college we feel terrible. I feel terrible. I if I was that caller that was a good call and he brings up the live. Nation like people social distancing. It's a larger point because people forget we may be gradually allowed to reenter society. Just take a random place like I don't know Burger like shake shack. They may not be able to cram a million people in line. They may not be able to cram million people in restaurants. They may be at twenty percent capacity so random stock like shake shack random random victim. Yes they might not be able to have the capacity instead so live nation Which we somehow tied right back in the shake shack should be going lower. So you'd call out of Florida. I think Joe from Florida. I'll I'll pick somebody else up. We never really spoke about Microsoft. But I don't know if it's one that's on your on your Watson. I know I know quite a deal. Bill Gates understood Mike from New Jersey. I WanNa talk about Microsoft. What's up you know? This is really a place lay earned. Those are coming out from Microsoft at the end of the month. down today. The market is think. It's got some room to run. I like buying Microsoft alongside now. It's shorting soon all the security risk coming out Zoom had it's wrong. I think he should resume nearby. Microsoft on the long side. And I think you're you're making enough money to go out and buy some other bullshit stocks after that. So it's a patriot. Almost even though. They're not apples to apples stretching the imagination. You're just giving us both sides. It what you're going long is Microsoft and you shorting Zoom Zoom has had its ron and Microsoft is poised to trade higher. It's down one and a half percent today but you think just with broader market weakness. That's up to. Maybe you're going to start to think into doing dave like if you have something we're GonNa be long and short you're going to have. Hey I believe in AAA. I hate shake shack embarrassed. Nothing like with the way trading. Believing in a company for me has nothing to do with like. I'm just looking at the numbers where I think. Somebody's outrun their number. Because I'm not keeping any of this account long-term right right so this is it. I mean this is supposed to be a day trading account this is one of the tenets was that you wanted to kind of be flat is where it's at you've decided was. I wasn't flat where it's at a couple of nights and I ended up on the wrong side in really the only way to make maybe not the only way but one of the ways seems like to make huge gains or losses is by risking the overnight like I today is the opposite of what has happened to me for the last week when I wake up. I blink and I'm down to fifty today. I woke up blink. I was up almost as lit my on fire. That wouldn't be good. Yeah can we get? Cut Your finger off the air. They didn't it. Yeah it it's pretty vicious a couple of days old. They're pretty cut. It's tough place to have it too. Tough Yeah I. In hindsight I was I was under the influence of A. We'd Brownie in right before I took the knife out. I put like some cream on my hands so slippery. It was not the Combo that you look for during it on boxing. Yeah no you normally don't WanNa be lubricated around. A sharp objects will still getting a lot of weapons. By the way Dave. That seems to be everything. I'm I'm pretty. I don't want any more things sent to me like somebody this morning. Tried to send me a chair and they wanted me to go sign for the chair. It's not signing for anything like you can't go down signed. Can we schedule delivery no? I'm getting five gazillion patches. They can't leave it. I'm not taking it right and then have you figured out anything with the draft. A car volunteered and he may get called in here tomorrow. Is that what you look for? Volunteers I mean. Volunteers are always good. I will say Karimun spider have done wonders there. My outlook on their lives here. Barstool a lot of work and abby. See an uptick bright here. I feel like I'm it's like you have a spotlight on. Its reflecting off the glasses a little bit. But it's not like we could see your screen or anything so if this if this market continues stay down like two and a half percent. It was down six hundred points when we started this. It's now down five hundred and fifty. I'm just looking at the Dow in back me Are we going to flats where it's at or we all idea? It's GONNA be a game time decision. I think it's going to go down more. What's up and then one of my final questions before I take another call. Dave is if something like shake shack was to get to that thirty five limit or if Nike I think. Nike said was an eighty dollar limit. We kind of felt like that's where the support was right. If you do cover your stock buy back is it. Then what are you going to enter it into longside? Like let's say you sure. Twenty five thousand Nike Your Coverage. Me Five you'll buy another twenty five then you watch it okay. Yes sticking to our levels are are support and resistance levels I'm going to pick up somebody in bowing to see if they have anything. Incremental say Sean New Jersey. What he got. Are you doing Dave? How are you good So less day I picked up some calls from Boeing Know You shorted them. I've been watching them all morning with the market drop and they've been holding a hundred and fifty as market price End of the week. I have one forty seven. Yes dropping him. But that's thinking with your break it up a caller you your typical guy. Yeah everything's going right as the plane's going down yeah this this really not a chance his unless it. I know it doesn't take a of Advice but there's no shot he's taking advice if you call it in on cricket mobile. I'm GonNa talk to Dom in Arizona on J. P. Morgan Dominates Buddy. Hey guys good. My right hand on J. P. Morgan They started the earning season tomorrow. Jamie Dimon released a letter to shareholders. Ten days ago was not positive. And today it's off almost Four percent three point seven percent wanted to get your comment I will. So they're all off I. I'm just looking at the financials just flashed up on the screen on the TV behind me. They're all off about that about three and a half percent or so or a lot of the big cap ones at least so this would be a huge gamble for Dave to take Trading J. P. Morgan in front of earnings on Tuesday just because we haven't had any big stocks report will certainly no big financial stocks report since the since the pandemic it started so i? I think there's too much fucking questions around how this thing's GonNa react what they're gonNA say about lowered guidance. Whether or not people will be like. Wow they lowered guidance. But it's not as much as we thought they were GONNA lower I don't understand banks reporting at all to be totally honest. Okay so yeah so bags reporting their earnings she talking about. Yeah like what what like? Yeah no I don't get it right. J. J. P. Morgan is such a global Thing so it's all there Trading desk which reports and earnings Whether or not they made any money commission business what they've made off of loaning money mortgages and all that stuff since it's such a big structure any place where a bank other than being one of those ones that has tellers with checking in and And savings any any place where you can make money in the Financial Field J. P. Morgan does it so quarterly report. How well they did and escorted. They're just GONNA do okay. But it's all about the next quarter and that reports tomorrow morning and I think that it's kind of scary business if this guy said. Hey we'll take a flyer and by a little bit of J. P. Morgan I think Jamie Diamond Does a very good job on the conference call. I just think that EPI way too fucking risky for a DVD global. Yeah I'm not going to get involved in it. Yeah no I would definitely. What do you think's going to happen with it? I mean here's the thing with the earnings. Obviously people are expecting bad earnings. So are they did it. All relative is going to be worse than what people think or is it a little better. That's GONNA dictate a lot right right so this this next this next quarter will probably be affected by earnings more so than the quarter that they're reporting so the only positive that I can say about. Earnings is that like every analyst who has a buy rating on J. P. Morgan and if J. P. Morgan comes out tomorrow and the report shit earnings but they give okay Guidance every analyst has a buy rating on and we'll have to justify their by rating or lower it's a holder sell re jigger their target prices. You're they'll have to comment. They'll have to give some sort of prognostication where they think it's going and then all that is data points that people can actually grab onto which they haven't been able to grab onto anything for the past month because people have been relatively mum known said. Shit the past. So that is what started a little bit of this downtick for me was. I knew Lululemon had reports one day at the end and I bought it at two hundred in their reports earnings. Were very good. Beat beat the street as they like to say but the CEO was gave a dire warning like even that that we're going to be devastated in the United States in that 'cause even though they beat earnings his I guess as you call guidance in his depression caused the stock to tank now Nike the opposite Nike. Everyone said hey here come. The earnings. They had a pause about looking at it jumped at the time. I believe from one. Seventy four to one eighty or seventy four eighty right and so their next turning. Yeah so there should be some time in June so we have a little time before they they report again but that June quarter that they'll be reporting will really reflect a lot of shit that had gone on from the corona virus. So yeah it's it's tough to say what the Fuck Synagogue unexperienced. Because we haven't had anything like this ever. We haven't had people had to report earnings when you know sixteen million people who are out of work where oil is at this. You know depressed price. There's a shitload of stuff that's going to go in. But at least it's going to give people some data points to fuck with the put into their algorithms and then And that's that's the part that's GonNa give some sort of assurance that the market's going to go up or down long-term right now we're betting and by we. I mean you get your money your betting that the market is gonNA stay soft to lower For the foreseeable future next couple of days. And we're GONNA take advantage of prey on the panic. Yeah and also like to mention for all the pinstripes in the mismatch collars all these people talk. I'm the only Guy Wall Street doing this with my own money. It's easy to trade other people's money I can trade other people's money I can bet with other people's money do the all money. Put millions of your own on the line. Everyone I see that a lot. Oh this guy. He's anybody can make money with his first of all down but anyone can make money with as much money as USCA. We'll go make go. Make your own one hundred Mil and then go do it be my guest. I mean I told you I had a full head of hair and the whole deal before I started trading. Nice to you know dreaming about it every night but it was always somebody else's money so I couldn't imagine doing this. Where APPS so much of my own five million to be exact five point one million to be exact for you on the line So so it is what it is but yeah prey on the planet so people have been asking Dave just because I glanced over thing you being the sole proprietor of DDT g President CEO. What's your long term? Look what I mean we get. We get an idea of your earnings every day. Your long-term look at my long term outlook on this stock market wherein I wouldn't I think all stocks are going to be going down for the next month two months and then then I'd go long companies I believe in I believe in Lululemon. I believe in Nike. I believe shake shack. I believe in Penn those the stocks. I think they're all going to go down pen. Maybe different pen pen. Hit Penn may be at like rock bottom. Like I don't think you're gaming sector. We could stay away from because they're gonNA revisit like the four area where it was but the Lulus I told you I think Lulu is a by under one ninety. I think Nike's a by around like seventy nine. And I think Boeing at a hundred. You could see that to buy because I told you they're not going to let Boeing Phil. I mean trump said that. Yet you hear this in Boeing. Said they're slowly. Nothing matters like Boeing said. They're opening the Washington facility. So I mean but I don't think you buy long for another month. Maybe two months so obviously since g still not flowing off the tongue is not a publicly traded entity and not a place where we can handle other people's money few and again involved with Dave's ideas you just gotTa simply short Boeing Nike Lulu Shake Shack and wait for his levels to cover. Go long and we're going to bounce up and down off of that thing. That's that's the that's the guidance for daybyday traded global right. Now Yeah and we were experiencing a pretty big comeback here. Because I've lost about two hundred grand today the wrong way since this this show this show never INSA. It's eleven twenty six. I mean that's that's the fucked up thing all right so we're going to hit our first break. Dave can shuffle around his position to to on the break. We'LL BE RIGHT BACK. Stock Central Incomes balance. Don't look back stock central. It's Monday it's April thirteenth myself. And Dave eight hundred three eight five. Stool is the number to call in with any kind of ideas any kind of advice. Please don't ask questions because we have no fucking answers. Markets are down about two percent as acting a little bit better only down one percent staging a small rally here between eleven twelve o'clock but for the most part it's been down about two percent most of the day Davis Still Short He's doing very well today. And getting some of it back and seems to be holding onto his guns waiting for the stocks coming even longer. Your one more big dip one more big. Old Peru stayed one headline away. We're headline away from Berkeley Coronas. Been quiet trump. Just keep saying we're going to beat the silent me wear opening up. It's all been fairly positive. Yeah I think I think that's reported have been on the steady decline also including here in New York. Even though we're still the epicenter And the small percentage is probably right around your apartment because it tends to live on cardboard more than anyplace else. I think that's overrated. Yeah he thinks yeah and a and a now if you look around your apartment and I don't want you to do it. Obviously now the largest. It's my apartment. Disaster It's depressing. I'm living in squalor. And it sucks is is spider staying. The night at all now is just kind. They come over. They should be over. Actually I think around noon maybe die down. I thought today I thought my phone was a law Pakistan coming off the hook really would like I mean. It's one of the most watched. I'm a I'm in a catch twenty two because it's a very highly viewed thing we're getting. I don't know fifty thousand people watching for almost three hours straight insane celebrity guests as good content. But it's killing me on one hundred different levels like having nowhere to live breathe sleep stop and I mean. People can't put a price on the emotional effect. I'd seen it. You've lost fish to an apparent suicide. Mike and that is boll is just too much room suite a suite kill themselves physically cutting fingers off a lot of shit going on? We have any plans for all the shit that you take it in. We're going to do like auction. We had an email list of people whether like we could re gift it to either. Frontline people for Corona or people who needed help are just any reason really. We ought to think fifteen thousand emails cool so then. That's where we're going to take all this shit but all this stuff that you've gotten because there's so much good stuff. Yeah the other options to do like a supermarket sweep type situation. Where like you're a nurse or whoever he is ten minutes. Come and take whatever you want. Be Kinda cool and this the wine alone wine yeah. It's the only reason I'd I'd be tempted to get in there of wine. Lots of booze. Lots of coffee. Lots of protein right and only a man only needs one or two Samurai swords tops. Samurai swords yeah. You can pick guns. I have a lot of stuff massage. Guns are legitimate. They actually hurt. Yeah they're awesome but you it's a two man job you need somebody to do it right. Spider or career it. Yesterday I got a job for the rest of his life. He wants And then as far as as getting back to work with the With the actual office getting back into the office. Do you have any kind of inside line as a as a as a business owner. Do you get an update from the city of. New York's. Hey by the way we're trying to no I've heard nothing okay. So Flying Blind. We're going to be business as usual for the. I don't think we'll be back in the office till June. I think everything right now is lip. Service may may much like the Easter deadline. And that's also why I think the market crash again. I think they're going to reopen certain parts. You're going to see a spike. Or they're gonNA come up the testing in everyone's. GonNa fucking have it right and that'll be that'll be sobering that these numbers then will then start to go through the fucking roof. I mean the hopefully the recovery rates still remains very high ninety percent. Or something like that. But we'll just get so many goddamn confirmed cases of it. We didn't know that we're all either a symptomatic or just brushing off like a common cold like you may have done at the beginning of this three times. I think I beat it. Kevin faked that he had it in made a big to do about it. I had it. I just kept it to myself enough to avoid that day like Jim not coming in when we were the only people in the office knowing that I have a family knowing that advocate lawyer. I would've sued the balls off you I don't know if I if I didn't no I would still try to Let's Let's talk to nate from Hartford. Connecticut need from Hartford. Connecticut wants to talk about active. At I what's up guys. How you doing good math Quick Point today. You're talking about the Goldfish. He's killing his other goldfish because he's got it in a real fish tank goldfish if you know or only Equipped to swim in a very confined little area. He has a full sized tank. That's ready for real fish. So He's GonNa kill me honest caller I I. There's no. Group of people starting to infuriate me more than the the Monday morning Goldfish quarterbacks. I put fish in a small tank everyone to a big tank. Give him toys doesn't want toys his waters to cloudy. They want it clear I give them food. They don't want that much. I can't win with this. Goddamn fish. I'm more I'm more Dave. I'm more than you. I'm giving him a too big of a home. How is anybody of died from having too big of Oh? He lives in Tech Palatial Estate? You have you ever seen a goldfish in a real sized tank. I Dunno listed. I don't know I don't know if he'd have paid attention to it beforehand. But gentlemen made from Harford call about activision and immediately started. Give goldfish advice which I think you. You even have a not a tough time but an unpleasant experience with the I told you so Hindsight is twenty twenty financial twitter. The goldfish twitter could be even just as brutal quarterbacks. I've never he's got three toys in the tank is too nice. That's what that guy said. I'm going to kill Randolph. By spoiling and the other guy. Everyone's like the Albania Rainbow Shark. Fish like you killed them. You give them an I. You can't win large. You really can I want to go to Vancouver. I'm going to go up to Vancouver to have somebody talk about Alaska Airways as yes. I have a question of Vancouver caller you on the line. Yeah here. What'S UP Dave? Were you there when you guys tore down your city when the Bruins beat them in the Stanley Cup backyard was what was that all about. I don't know it. You know what honestly I think they set it up beforehand like if you look at it like the guy coming in with mass and all that shit and it was. It was predestined to happen. To be honest I was happy they lost. I'm I hate the cannot so the passion man. I hated them since day one. They're brutal they stunk. They don't deserve to win a cop so there's nothing to worry about in that sense all right just a question. So Boys I'm talking Alaska Airlines are you. Okay A. Okay. Alaska Air Yup. I'M NOT GONNA lie. Listen I played hockey in Alaska. That was airline that we used it as the best airline when it comes to quality not quantity because people are going to use the airlines again. Soon like there's no way that that's going to change the airlines are going under. There's no fucking issues with that. Alaska Airlines is the stock to buy in when it comes to short-term trading because people know that they're going to want the quality over quantity nobody wants to sit beside each other. Nobody wants to deal with all that garbage. So then Anthony's point is that everyone's GonNa try and buy an airline at some point. Somebody's going to try and buy an airline for the recovery when we think can go back because everyone says the first thing that happens when we get healthy. So we're going on a fucking trip. I just can't see you next year. So the skies the first one to call in and say if you're thinking about some of the bigger carries united's Delta's Americans don't Alaska. Alk Alaska Air Group is the one to buy it. Because you don't think they fly really east coast. Who Cares but honestly listen to me. I know that you're a big ten guy. Got That Eldorado. Resorts is another one. You need to look at. I know under the table potentially do it. There are about to buyout caesars. When it comes to June and they're going to skyrocket and what's The frigging I I was aware Deals not private like that's in the news. Because I've been told that before I actually had Caesar's I was on the remember about scissors. That's kind of why did that but it wasn't moving so I got rid of it. Yeah all right. Well have a good day. Boys Watch it fall watch it fall right. So that's the root against Mark Cuban keeping the door open on two thousand twenty bid there. He's talked. I Mark Cuban. I liked Cuban but his egos as big trump. Right so I mean. Do you think that helps that helps. In the potential you know in this day and age where we have a guy like trump as president in Cuban has a better chance in Biden Cuban would have a decent chance right. I mean he said all the right things after virus. Yeah Ego the size of a mountain. They're probably more similar than people. Give him credit for right so I don't know what his political platform as so I don't know exactly if he's got one of those like wild I assume he's not a redistribution of wealth guy but I think he's much more enticing than somebody like a like a Biden If we were to put somebody up against trump in two thousand twenty election but who knows I mean I? We had a Hollywood actor in with Reagan and we have a game show or basically reality show star with trump. Anybody can fucking be president. Eighty trump and Cuban fucking hate each other. Do they have you? Have you done anything with Cuban in the past we did the the shark tank thing? Okay and I mean personally nice guy or okay sky nice. Will you have your vote if he does run twenty twenty or is that something to personal view? Okay maybe endorses. Ddt G global. Get something to me at the opportunity by Barstool for like one hundred grand or something. Yeah Aria Aria. Minnesota is getting destroyed in the marketing. Wants to share a story. Okay all right what's up. You're on with socks. What's up guys debut? What's Up Bell? Motherfucking press big ball. That's what I'm saying. You guys see that same can sell. I think that should be your background with your face with the same with the big by the way it can always get where some forty percents down today. That got a couple of options. Going against me. I'm going against how presidents off. Sorry about that Oprah. Today's the only day of one even though this hour has not been a great our started hot. And it's all you have so much of this shake shake shake shack was down in the forties. And it's up to bucks since we've been on this call. I don't know what's happening. It's Glenn Never fucking on Shark and that's where on this. I'm never getting out another mode going in my life. Three in our swearing five out every seven words. Are you the reason? I picked you up is because the opposite of most callers call up. Say these against Dave today and he's taken a bath he's down forty percent and also he's the only person that is given the opportunity for us to know that you can also lose money trading options. He lost forty percent of his money today at has been doing it. Just trading options and call up saying that it's the answer for Dave You know sometimes it's not but he's still looking into them so you're GONNA kill. Even more sad was last week. I only started ten. Jeez okay I was up to eighteen was up to eighteen on the Boeing option. Now don't my trump's down to five GS and didn't everybody's talking options at options. I'd be down a GAZILLION dollars because I'm bound so my bosses would just be multiplied if I'm understanding options. Well I think I mentioned my picks and then go against to lose. You don't WanNa pay enough autumn. But Arias making a point that well he offered then towards the end of the call. People don't know to send dave his picks and say Dave could go against them He put ten grand market. Got It up to eighteen. Now he's down to five trading options so I think some people think that you'd be using options more as a hedge that you you know you buy a put versus a long position or something like that You seem to seem to want to buy and sell them or showed him and buying back. Whenever the wherever the hell you think that they're gonNA go And unless somebody kind of steps in and does it with you. I don't see a starting to do much options within the next couple of weeks you see that Dave. I'm not options options. Yeah I I mean I kind of got the feeling from it and Do keeps his holdings. I don't know if I want to pick up. I'm going to pick up a guy jake from Long Island. One Jake from Long Island what he wants to talk about Jake. Hey guys calling in about HP symbols H. P. Q. I've been shorting everything in the market. I'm going long on. Hp here for the next month. Two hundred fifty million people working in America eighty percent of and working from home right now. So that's one hundred. Twenty million working from home. Companies are letting these employees by desktop printers copiers And reimbursing the employees for them so if twenty percent of the key of the people working from home right now by a printer. That's twenty four. Million People. Buying a printer The biggest competitor of HP's Epson Japanese company. I think most companies want to buy American right now buying HP high-volume stock it's been volatile. I think it's right in Dave's wheelhouse curious to hear your thoughts on it so I'll jump in and just give a little summary Jake from Long Island called in with a Hewlett Packard. Old School name. Hp Q. IS THE SYMBOL. Um extremely liquid stock trading at fifteen fifty now down three percent today saying that a stock like this will do better whatever when working from home people buying computer components and then being able to write it off like US setting up a studio in the House and Barstools saying. Hey what are you guys need to get done? So he says HP Q. as opposed to its number one competitor. Being a Japanese company like Epson would be one that's poised to do well. During the corona virus and impossibly afterwards where we spoke about this Dave. If it's more cost effective people working from home while the fucker people are going to pay rents in the middle of New York City. I mean I know what's hurting now. Is the idea of the advertisers but if they come back when the viruses done. I'll tell you why you may think it's more effective but all of our people do the least amount to work possible when they're not in the office so I'm not not barstool guys. Yeah not partial. I think that there is a premium on being together and being able to shoot and being able to come up with stuff like they do on the fly. Borstal people are very good at it so I think Barstool is not one of those things but I think in general not in general but there are certain businesses that are finding that their employees are as productive to maybe more productive or if they're a little bit less productive it's offset by the amount of rent that they're not paying to keep them in some sort of office building in the middle of Manhattan Bar. So I think in most media companies are an exception because I think rhone being with Caleb makes them more More creative than those guys being apart that type of ship so anyway so this guy's close rallying this guy's HP P Q was his call for anyone who's Who's paying attention? It's Hewlett Packard so shake shack? Rallying are you. Are you tempted? Start to buy a little bit of stock here just to cover on route idiot because it's three dollars higher than it was before this program started. So we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA. We're still holding on and as soon as we do cover one of these days. Is there a name that you're immediately looking to jump into that? People like you MasterCard. Off Your watchlist. That was one of those ones. I thought you were looking at pretty closely. What we're talking about okay. I thought there was one said written down that you had this one. Maybe maybe Clemmie So is there anyone that you look outside of the core bit a name? 's nobody has been able to talk to. You is going the wrong way right now. The market has been rallying off its lows. They see dow down four hundred forty five points down six hundred points at some point. We're talking about people not going to everybody. I'm almost doesn't seem what stocks I just go with the market minute just mainstream markets up minds up if its downs. Down the exception to the Boeing. Those crazy runs at fuck me but right now we're going to pick up a somebody else who got here. Got So many Argon. I think the name is Houston Argon. Can't I can't tell. What do you got on socks central? Hey guys appreciate it Large and I hope you guys are having a good day Talking about build a bear. Bb W Wanted to get your thoughts large and Portland. I don't know if your research and this as well but one of your thoughts on momentum investing so bb. W What do you mean? As far as momentum investing so this gentleman is talking about w bilberry all. I do workshop. This is one of the two dollars. Stock Trades about five hundred thousand shares day. Not sure if it does have the volume feed of push it around because you'd be buying fifty or one hundred thousand shares at a time So it's not one that I think that you can get into for example today. Stocks up twenty cents and that's up thirteen percent. You could push the stock up a dime trying to get into it on on one hundred thousand shares. So it's probably not one of those ones that you're going to fuck with plus. I don't think you ever build a bear workshops. to be honest isn't momentum. Investing all I do. That's that is feel so now. What do you mean what I think of it? All I do right. You'd mentioned momentum investing towards the towards the end. I don't know what the fuck was the point with that I'm GonNa pick guys can be Sean from New Jersey once spoke at. Byu MD. Sean what's up? You're on with US Central Dave from Jersey a C. You playing shake shack I see a lot of movement beyond me. I was wondering how you think about that. Who Owe beyond meat. What's what's Took her on that B. Y. N. D. and right. Now it's seventy three sixty three and has made a big jump today. It's been making big swings so I was thinking about getting calls on it. I saw that they wouldn't shake shack and a lot of the food. Industries are dumping right now so wondering how he felt. I do call options so I know he does long and short so I was wondering what he thought about beyond me. What do you think of this plant based meat replacement stuff? Dave what do what do you think the long term prospects for something like beyond me? Why anti human humans were born to eat meat right so this this is something. I don't think he's ever going to believe in Dave's not a fact. I like myself but I think fundamentally he thinks that somebody wants a fucking burger they probably going to go out and buy a A Burger Dave. Now I know I know. We're not up as much as when we first came in here but we still have some momentum coming in as far as being on the plus side we're holding onto them we're holding onto everything and there's a chance that we hold onto them overnight if we don't see the dip that we want today but if we can just get one more leg down we're going to be getting out of some of these things today uncover we need another dip. Yeah it's Yeah I just. This shows drives me crazy. I know all right. So that's it. That's IT for stock central. This episode is brought to you by magic spoon Syria.

You Ain't GonNa all right. We're live Brandon Walker Tommy Walker in the House. House to house at Rome built the actually built this house tarmac bare hands. Tommy you impressed. It's Friday we got Friday Energy Brandon. Thank you for coming. It's good to see it is good to see people. It's just good to get out in Iraq. I haven't seen the boys in a while. Yeah and we didn't even it was just you know same old same old like hey brandon. Good to see a man I would imagine. This is the first time you've seen anyone outside your family. Yes in what five weeks? It's weird because I have had plenty of interaction. I have six people in my house right. But they're the same six people over and over and over and over so this is absolutely pleasant. I'm probably not leaving when the show's over. Well you also got here a little too early. I also got here a little too early because we basically started talking. And what you you don't realize because you haven't been doing. The full two hours is without any sports. You cannot waste any breath when it comes to this show I show up. I think I've shown up sometimes like thirty seconds before we start enrolling is starting. I'd say what's up. How are you feeling and then we start because you can't waste you can't waste it. I could but I couldn't waste. I didn't know if the trip would be longer than it was. I put it in. The map was forty two minutes. It took me forty two minutes to get here. You are in a better safe than sorry situation. He wanted to get here on time but the problem is we already got huge nuggets of conversation like Tommy telling us his job he wanted and that was a beautiful job. Rush on Air Sam in my lifting weights talion found ten pounds. We hear from the glass though. It's all right. We'll have our downtown. And then and then and then say into the Mike all the jobs you want to talk about careers list of March his own mark right in the Mike. Yeah there you go. I want to work at borstal. Be a please be a soldier. It'd be a singer or be a fighter but he also we could slow down to start at Barstool once. Your Dad died. Okay so the Walker legacy lives on now I actually think Tommy listen again but slower because I think you can do all of these things at Barstool. Well I don't okay go ahead go. Listen you WANNA work at Barstool borstal. I want to be a place. I want to be a soldier. I want to be a fighter. I want to be. He doctor I want to be a singer. Okay so you can fight work at Barstool and saying well at Barced I. I don't think you can fight and work our Kanye. You referenced. Oh I see yeah sure. Okay so boom. We're done rowdy kids division. Yes no criterion have to grow up to make all the doctor your though that was a sneaky. Move cabalists how we're GONNA do that. That's a lot of school and I don't know if I'm going to be able to afford that either. So you'll be redone. Policy Policy pays far. Stole money to go ahead and get that medical degree. Yeah so and then we also have the news that we're opening America up again. Rony sentence that what is it. What's the actual acronym whoop whoop? Oh you a stinks already. I'm I'm off this because you need a good acronym like if we're GONNA if it's going to catch on you need something that people can just say to each other like. Hey we're practicing this opening up America again just seems like an added word for no reason. We don't need up. Opening AMERICA AGAIN WOULD BE CLEANER OPENING UP. Like it doesn't add anything the acronym. It doesn't make fun or to say it doesn't make it more grammatically correct opening up. America doesn't doesn't really do it for me. What about A. F. L. L. America? We know that doesn't af Atholl America. Fuck it. Let'S BE LEGENDS BEING THERE. I think we gotTA PICK THE WORD FIRST. And then do a backward name backroom. Afs America full send. America Merrill Service America Fuck it works go fuck it fuck you. Grandma's dead America. That was joking too. I think that the phase three is like calculate how much money you have cost the economy and like if there's a certain level it's gay. Your your grandmother is now worth that America. Fuck you grammy. Yeah that's good. Does that say what we're trying to say though or is that just that the grandparents might just take that to heart and they they might not get the message about as opening America? That might just be just how people live in this scenario. They're just going to die anyway. Right like what do you want boomers to be live or the market at the and it's not even it's not even the boomers. I think is pre boomers boomers parents. No it's it's boomers. Now boomers are old. Yeah but I wanNA say old I think over eighty. Okay but brewers are over radio. The boomers between guests. I don't know about you guys. This is totally side but now that we are like deep into the twenty first century. I really struggle with the years math when I'm like when I was born in nineteen sixty eight. It takes me a solid minute to figure out how old they have to start with how old I am right. I lost it was soon as we turned it the year. One thousand nine hundred thousand like all went out the window in terms of being able to do the quick math on age. The only people I could do it well with our like. I'll see a prospect who was born in ninety six and it'd be like ninety six. That was a couple years from the year. Two thousand two thousand. I can do that. Math but the sixties. I can't even do might near like if someone says I was born. Nineteen eighty that's three years asked me. I still couldn't be able to tell what you were. You born nine hundred ninety eight. I would be like yeah. I don't think sixty it could be a teenager. Yes that's that's struggling for all of our brains. What else we got cooking. I do feel the Friday energy in this room. Oh there's a lot of Friday and it feels good Tommy's doing swinging leg kicks. He's practicing he's gotTa make laws which Robbie Fox I'm GonNa give me Fox shoutouts Robbie Fox's one who gifted those I was just the Messenger and also like he's going to remember me not Robbie rest. Yeah and he's very excited about gloves and you didn't describe the play by play but he was just doing Ninja Kicks Knicks. There's a lot of Ninja training. Ninja training at all. Talk is his jump kick. It's not just like raise your leg into the air kicked. There's a jump with a kick paired with it. He's getting up to time he's getting up to. I thought was going to show US also. Oh Oh man Tommy. Oh my God. This is a person is done. He's also wondering shirt. That says Hashtag epic epic moves. This kick the shit out of an imaginary person. I'll tell you what Ron Ghosts in this house. Their own live here anymore. Opole Roger Down the hallway. Wait Brennan starting to get nervous. Okay I don't mind it okay Brandon Wardell. What else is going on? It's good to see you. It's good to like be face to face with you. I feel like the depression that you exude every single day. It didn't carry over a little bit in his. I'll say you're changing liberal. Talk feel like when I looked in his eyes a little dead Dennis Room but I do think that like overall. He doesn't look as bad as I thought he would. I think three hundred pounds would look a lot better on them. I think that you could get to three hundred pounds attainable. If this is all you are right now. Three HUNDRED POUNDS. Yuka where it without a break in the cameras. So you don't think it's GonNa look obscene. If I'm I think it will look. It won't look good but I don't your frame like if we were if we were head coaches right now right. If we were a training staff we would say. Hey Son your frame can hold three hundred up a little bit. Yeah like I. I wouldn't tell you don't want me to go up and I got a master's degree in kinesiology like I wouldn't tell you that you you can get to three hundred if you can't get three hundred you're built to hold it. There's a you got the hanger right. We got tight. You were tight in right. And we're going to put you on the offensive tackle in my view right exactly so I my question is how come you haven't gotten me 'cause I gotta find it. I gotta find it. I will find it. That will be on my list of things. I'm kind of. I don't know if you noticed. But I'm Kinda running the whole football program here got fearsome old Mike. I lost things played here. So Fiesta bowl tonight is going to go appointment. Television Mark Question about that is it could have been the national title game. Wha- what happened happened that games in the past. It's the ball is actually better than the national titles. The pressure's off. Yeah I think so. I think the pressure's off. I mean if you if you lose this you can't lose this game three loss on ranked UCONN team but like what a what a consolation prize if you get in the situation where all your seniors are looking ahead to the NFL draft. All they cared about was winning national championship. That's been taken away from them. It's hard to get up for Yukon. Okay one word for you know two tours for no one word for you uniforms. I have a great never before seen uniform Combo that I'm putting out to my. That's how you get guys to get pumped up for game. You give them fresh. That's the by an right that is the buy in. That is exactly the by. I've never unveiled these uniforms. I was in the lab this morning. I wasn't doing plays. That's the difference ballgame. I don't care about the place I care about. The uniform camera looking fresh. Are we talking about some kind of color? Rush Situation I'll just say I don't care. It's it's they're all white Younis with black helmets and the Stickers pop on the Black Helmet Man Desert Air uh-huh Damn so it must watch you better win that game or else you might not even get a head coaching position. If you don't win you should probably just stay at Florida state. I that is definitely on the table of like just staying Florida state but I do. I would like to be a head coach. I don't WanNA play defense. So that's really the the tug and pull here. Is there any better offensive coordinator position that you could get? That's true I could just go somewhere else as an offensive coordinator better life yet. Probably Not Harder Circuit I. I just don't know that given what Duggan's done in Tallahassee in three months I'm not sure they those two parties dug in and if she wanted to be together for no I would agree. I'd agree. He said some things about other players about his lack of Y His willingness to recruit right. So there's a lot of bridges that have already been burnt. Burnt him on the way in or you were burning them during the season. Yeah no actually. When I walked into Tallahassee I was literally I had a tale of fire there was just swaying back and forth. I'm to think of some kind of drinking game that I could play for your game tonight. I don't know if I drink. When there's a touchdown touchdown will be good but you from the way that you're talking about it. You better be hanging a ton of points on these guys tonight. I might put a guarantee out there that will see in a minute. I'm not sure why he's dropping but I might have put a guarantee for for certain Burger. Mount so yeah. There's going to be someone sent me those squares. That was pretty pretty cool. Like that's the best way to survive. This quarantine is like just like you have squares. You just use you know. Hang out with your friends and watch points go up at ten thirty nights a forty five minute game not a big investment and you know have a little fun with you could take a shot. Every time Doug's uses a different play in his playbook. So that'll be war would not get drunk. Yeah I'LL BE STONE COLD GAME. There's four there's four place there the others four point four pace there's the there's the HP wheel shark wheel. There's the angle there's the counter and then there's the fuck it. I'm just going to throw a deep play. The counter rose founders our favorite place. I mean the counter I run so perfectly. It's almost like very patient runner on the counter. You gotta find the whole and you gotta let it develop too because you have that counter step. And everybody's going one saying you gotta you would think defenses would have some idea that you think you can opener the counter with a dive. Nope they can't they can't they can't keep up with it all right so. Brennan check in with you checked in with me. Rhone. Let's check in with you. You did the first test run. Mock draft last night with Steven Shay. Please tell us how it went. It was fascinating I I will say. It was probably a stupid. Move to go up against the Dave's on boxing. I don't think that was the smartest thing that we've ever done scheduling wise. But the fact that I mean Stephen Chain I talk for like fifty minutes unstopped about the NFL draft. We just had so much knowledge coming out of our pores that might have been boring as fuck for people. People come to us for knowledge so for this draft show. We're going to need to ramp up the humor a little bit. We're GONNA need to ramp up the Wacky nece. Just being locked in with Stephen Che and serious mode is like being in the twilight zone. You can't you can't just sit in serious really is like Y. You have to find that balance like the perfect balance at par. Stool to me is Eighty percent jokes. And then if you can drop like twenty percent just random knowledge or not even knowledge but like a different perspective. That might be a little interesting. That's not an expert perspective by any means but at least it's something that's being said that might not be said by everyone else. That's pretty much the the perfect recipe if you flip it and you do like eighty percent serious twenty percents jokes. People like wait. This isn't what I'm we're not fucking idiots that thinking that we're going to compete with the NFL work or something with coverage. We're trying to be funny. We're trying to be a supplement to it. We're trying to be a second screen than that. You're watching on your phone. Sports arguments on Liquids College football show. The best moments are when we argue about like our beliefs in different teams. It's not it's not our ability to be to breakdown XS and OS and be like. Oh this team's looking great well minus your next as an Oak. What accident or have you never know. What's your choice? I'm a huge guy. Well XS and OS. Okay would you say it's XS and Os it? Would you say Jimmy? Joe's are XS and OS JOE's. But I can do okay. I can do the. Nfl draft is the Jimmy. Joe Show. I just started arguing with Gus Douglaston. Well no I'm just saying I. I know your football knowledge is fantastic. You know a lot about football. Now I don't know XS and Os you know. Well Yeah you don't have those but I also I think that this past year member we've had some discussions about Different motivational spots. I think I'm the motivational captain of the handicapping. I don't know Jimmy's and Joe's or as you know pretty. Though that like a holiday kids were after they win a big game or not. GonNa play as well the next week. Yes. That's pretty much all I know. You just know the feel of the game you. The situation that they're in I as a human would feel this way. Yes and that's why it's going that direction. Tommy play minecraft sneeze some as your good. Can they hear Tommy Can the producer? Whoever's on the board can you hear Tommy when he talks in the Mike Tommy talking to Mike? Real quick see seeing the ABC's again give us those ABC's as the Mike Tommy whispering. No that's definitely not going to work. Don't worry about it Did you hear him when he listed his favorite jobs? Okay all right. Cool all right. So so Tommy's Mike is working if he wants to hop back in Are we going to do draft next ye? I think so next week a lot of people want to do a football movie for sure and I think draft as the right one because it kind of a lot of people hate a lot of people like it. I really wanted to do the program. But I couldn't find it where people can find because the programs one of my favorite football program. Oh Shit about the program starring. Defense Shabelle Alvin Mack. There's so many there's so many everybody. The program is blue chips with the name of our magazine Wall Player. Steve Lattimer it's supposed to be about FSU it's What's his name? Who who's the main character came? You know the coach numbers name. But it's a James Caan claims on Bowden. No it's kind of like who? I don't remember who he followed I. He's one of those calm Guy Right. He's not like a outlandish like Pete Bell was he's just kind of like the figurehead of the program. James Caan I think I can't remember who we followed. We should definitely watch the program. I would watch the we've done. We did back to back basketball than we did back to back baseball so we can do back to back football. That's right could drafted though because we should do drafting next week. I think that that's fair because it's just so ridiculous. The Perfect Watch for us. But somehow it's like it's so ridiculous at like a comes around like it's not just it's not pure poppycock. It gets the the machinations around the draft pretty correct but the trades. He pulls off a ridiculous but at the same time they'll look at the first round picks gets them all back but look at the Ricky Williams trade. I mean the fact that he gets them all back but he also he gave up the he also gives it three second round picks. That's right yeah. So it's like I mean he he is. There is an element to the trades. Where it's just it is ridiculous but there's enough that is grounded in reality that you're not like what is going on here. Still still go ahead negotiate. Can we go wrong? Yes can I just say whatever breaks here? I'm just GONNA go ahead and I'm just GonNa go and give you one hundred and fifty dollars. Ooh I know wrong. Don't do that onto I as ruins representative and legal counsel. I'm GONNA say right now. If one thing breaks you have to give a hundred dollars. If two things break you have to get up to three hundred pounds. What Yeah Yeah. Yeah I will come and tell me whatever you want and I will cover the cost of what he breaks. Because I already said I'd give you fifteen hundred dollars so that money's gone so one hundred and fifty dollars that's breaking. There's what if he breaks the playstation. I'm trying the XBOX xbox one what if it's a one hundred dollars no matter what as insurer and insured against against everything here? What do you got Tommy? We got say you can break anything into the. Oh you're rolling. Mike singing the Mike. Dance wrong name. Hannah conversation good songwriter. You does this all day. I just us you support. This is my name saying that was good. Tommy good not good stuff man. What's that song? Call Tommy INSA SHY. Now is it. Is it your Tommy Walker original? Oh it's B. E. R. B. E. R. E. R. Beanie are the band your well He. He's not lying okay. There's a band called. B E R never heard of PR groups name is B. E. R. Do thanks for putting us onto that Jews lived. I am good new music and that song sounded really good. They they seem pretty cool. They do seem pretty cool. Their logo is a skeleton with some kind. Yay West glasses on. You know the key west shades that had like strikes slats them. That's that's their logo so I don't know if it's a new band if it's an old band but I like it it's new to me. There are old. Appreciate it and good fine. Tommy Good Poll Brandon. We did the Mount Rushmore of states. Today you think that's fair that in twelve twelve picks between me. Pf Tea and hang cake now did pick Mississippi second overall which I fought back at but would you say the Mississippi is in the bottom twelve. Okay so all right just relax. I'm very relaxed. I agree a question. I am objective measure. Yes there there are reasons to put Mississippi in the bottom where the Fateh state where the poorest state we have to leash education but say no more do the best minds. The best minds in Mississippi moved out of Mississippi. Well I would say the best minds and a lot of states. You don't live in the state that you know. I don't listen. Listen Ronan. State Rep listen. I defending Mississippi. Thank you gave me the listen. I said Elvis Oprah Jerry Rice Walter Payton Brett farve southern food catfish. There you go. That's good wait. Was that just a tourism commercial for that. Was The tax is. I texted brandon. I said hey listen. We're about to do this. I think Mississippi is GONNA get picked. So give me something. And I'll defend you and those I mean those are. That's a pretty strong backbone. Hank picked it was a believe Hank would be a little bit more diplomatic about also had reasons like he was like I went there and I had a bad time. Yeah but he won't with Kayla we've got contention with Caleb about this video they did I. Did you watch calebs documentary? Do and did you see how he very earnestly said not to make fun of you. He said we went to Starkville. And there was nothing to do. And the only way that we could make this like interesting at all was to do parody of it. He wasn't saying that. Because you were there to poke at you or to give you a gentle ribbing he was he was saying rapidly Brennan Walker existed. I facetime Caleb last night you did house doing facetime all the last night just to see how everybody was doing facing me who. I was talking to you guys today okay. So how's everyone doing giving us good? I called him right in the middle. He was doing a DJ session. So phones on music going and said I'm Jay. Right now call you back. I think he was just teaching at his house and he called me back and his brother went and call them catfish yesterday. So I got a picture of that and then I called Coley. He was doing mix tape. Okay and I talked to Nick and K B. They're always together. They're always together. They do live together. I think I don't know if they live together. I live right next to each other. I don't know how it works but I talked to nick and Gabi Youtube. I'm talking to Stephen J. I forgot to. Oh Wow Steven. Shay did not get talked to. Oh that was a roundhouse Combo. Get Him Tommy Let. Let's pick at the underlying scab here Stephen as been. I mean he's been starting to do with me for awhile he's got. He gave you some Gulf. The Gulf happened. Honestly you guys are going to have to settle it on this this draft show next week but you didn't give him a facetime. Well the reason I didn't was I did these face times at ten. Forty five and I feel like Stephen. She goes to bed at nine o'clock. Yeah he probably does. He's he's bettering himself right now. He's one of the only people everyone's got that on volume themselves as bettering that annoying friend. Who Right now like it's it is pretty much decided like everyone's GonNa come out of this looking fatter grocer haircut like I had to cut like a white the white hair out of my beard this morning. It's gross. There's definitely though every friend group has at one guy who's like I've just been crushing it man who they're not doing it silently. Herschel Walker workout. Every morning push up from the back of my hand ruining like learned French this after news. Text message groups about push ups. Yeah coding like all this stuff yeah unacceptable. Because they're using it as a tool to open up their own condescension. They're just yelled at to look down their nose and be like when I did with my time. Stephen share right now. He's definitely a date with my time. Hate ash right now. Dude Dell come back and have all. The shirts just fit in a little bit nicer. You know not me. Groans been doing push ups though still really. Yeah ascend to the two thousand push-up but we club. But I just have to stave off like I do every Saturday. I don't do it throughout the week. I just do it all at once. You have a Herculean what you're doing crazy man crazy tiny dab and doing push ups. Yes right away. You wouldn't lie about that. They're in lockstep. Tommy would never lie about that. I got their stories straight beforehand. Kids across the Brooklyn Bridge was like all right. Tommy here's the deal if telling these fellas that I've been doing thousand pushups every Saturday. So they ask. I'll give them every possible combination without you. Say Yes no questions asked us for you. Mess this up for him. Yeah if they try to get you away from me if they separate us you stay strong son. I've been seeing this coming. I WanNa ask you a question. We even the this lie. What do you think about this apartment? What do you think about? Ron's place a very nice nice. What's Nice about the entire apartment? All right he's very. I asked if I could have a dog. I said I might wind up with a dog in my life at some point. Connie told me that this apartments too nice for dog so yeah I mean look at it. I don't I don't know what to do. How do I how do I make it less nice? I don't know what my recourse is to be able to fit this retrofit. This for a dog. Break the glass all right if you if you want to talk to you. Come talk on the Mike when you guys were driving and you saw me walking. Stella Tommy just goes is. Let Me Guess Spell Dude. You got that for so actually. It's my other dog. Linda have never showed you. Let me get let me guess is one of his his main phrases legion. Great and whenever you walk in the room like let me guess. Put a shirt on yet. Let me guess. Hey you get. He gets his guesses right. Think about it so let me and then you can make you make your guests right away. I guess we're on. You're wearing a hat today. Yeah you're right Kinda nailed get up Thomas de Robing. He's got his underneath. What's underneath straight straight jobs? Look going on. It looks new. It's still has a creases either. It was perfectly folded or its brand new. No they haven't none of my kids have worn their good close in a month. Oh we've kept a good close. You didn't do like Easter. Doom did. But we didn't dress up for. Oh yeah dress up for the ongoing sport would you think Tom? He's GonNa wind up playing in later on in his life other than fighting fighting so he he has never expressed a desire to play baseball. Put him in t ball and baseball before but he never really wanted to play it too. You're part of the problem. But over the last dying over the last six months he's taking an interest in it and I get him outside and he just knocks shit out of baseball so I think he's starting to get into that final and I think he's going to have some Dinger's he can hit. Damn maybe we could see some Russian the mound videos too and that could get people excited about baseball. Oh Yeah Tommy. What he got hit from my neighbor's yard all the way over there. I didn't hate it all the way to my other neighbor's yard for that's pretty good was Four hundred exit velocity stat statuary. What I'm starting to lose knowledge about sports. Now what is it when seconds track no star Trek is the? This is sad though this is I've actually noticed a couple times where I try to say something sports related and I just don't have the word it's losing it we're exit velocity and they do angle launch angle but what is what they call it. Sports Tracks No sports sport track is is the contracts that cast stack has what I just said but I don't think it stack cast. There's gotta be something else. Let me on. This is killing me. This is actually going to kill me. I if I if I wanted on the record that if I do die because I can't think of this word I want it as counters corona of death. Okay Okay we'll put this word on your tombstone to DC. Don't even cool it. I'm GonNa just wait. I'm waiting till someone tweets at me. What is the word the? Espn uses to describe when they when they go inside the stat inside the Status Sport Science. But that's their segments gas you saying it's Stackhouse Stackhouse Stackhouse Act. That sounds too plain. Everyone is no. It's definitely there's some. They'll sit sit. There's another word there. There's another word there that you're not telling me they are casting the stat. But it's not. I don't think there's another word. Someone say the other adults? They the other word this sucks. This really sucks. I'm telling you I'm starting to lose my hip. What else so you don't even know what else you forgotten. You can't tell me what you've forgotten forgotten right now. I don't know what you don't know see right now. Right now. With Juicy Astra per month the baseball season all these things should be flooding. Should be like I should be making the joke like you know I do that. I'll be like the. Espn will tweet it out. And then I'll say actually my thing had it. We're just losing it slowly. We Will Be Basketball. It would be. Nba Playoffs right now. Just starting it'd be great so yes all the next gen action stack cast next year but next. Gen is a thing though. I don't know I think they're making it up. You know there's a thing us we're susceptible to be messed with though. We're just like old folks at In the memory ward. Who just have like Plato brains. You could tell him anything stack cast. I guess it is that cast that actually makes it even worse. I would rather be a roller that you remember right. I'd rather have been a word that I just couldn't remember. You're right in instead. It's a word that I remembered but I put it to something that it doesn't that was one of my worst showing street. That was a bad show. Next Gen is what people are all out of practice. This is not. This is not a good look. We're going to need spring training before we come back fully. At what point do you stop missing? Sports that's my fear. No because we have these fake sport when you play this fucking so I watch this game. I may allow core. I woke up this morning. I was so excited. Got A game tonight. I Watch football game and it is the most exciting part of my day so I am never going to start missing sports because I watched gusto Captain Games. It's an actual game. Yeah I I was getting mad at you. I was getting mad at me because at first I was like throw the ball and then and then you do it too much and the nights where there isn't sports. Is this same vacuum of like the night before like a finals game. Where it's like the lull and it's like more sports we gotta wait for next. I have observation. I just don't like watching old games that much. I do like watching a game every now and then but I don't like every night having to watch old game the game the first time as a unique experiment you can never get it back here. Is My issue with the old game watches. That are going on right now. I think that they're missing a timeframe that we should be watching more of so they do a lot of eat. I watch a lot of college basketball eighties during March madness. Obviously I'm a love. Mj docked late nineties bowls are coming up. I feel like we have. They don't do two thousand two thousand ten decade they had the Brett farve going two minutes over the packers playing the vikings with Brett farve tonight and I was like this is kind of cool because this is like a recent but not super reason you know what I mean like ten years ago or whatever it. Is that Mike where you could. Almost you can still kind of remember exactly where you were at that time. The biggest one they've shown was UC in Texas. I thought that's the one that got the most twitter play I want. I'LL WATCH EVERY TIME. Six six those five seasons in January or like give me the Oklahoma Boise state game. Oh I lost so much money on that game. I thought Oklahoma was GONNA kill them. That was a reason that re watching these games like the obviously there's something special about washing them the first time being in the amber of that moment but every game. You don't know that the game is going to be special as you're watching it and sometimes it's lost on you. How special that is. And you don't get the chance to watch it right back like the next day. You don't get that instant classic vibe you don't get you don't get to revisit rian joy it and that's what I like about these re watches especially with college teams where you can be like. That guy was on the right college football team when you look at old clemson team and data stack defense or no hieaux state team had like eight receivers that are in the NFL right now. Yeah Sas the Kinda Shit that gets me fired up. And it's like Oh. I can't believe that these guys were all playing together. I agree with you there. Seeing the college teams the old college teams and being like men that guy that guy that guy. That is pretty quiet. Watch the Miami Ohio State Game. The other day The National Championship game. And what two thousand one to two thousand two I always. I don't I don't like how that's the two thousand one season though right. That's what bothers I I. I hate that. I hate super bowls because you can never somebody says they should make January first right win like I don't know where you would end it. I don't know I don't know what the solution is but I'll tell you the solution. Actually baseball doesn't start till July one make July fourth the start of the New Year and you have the end of basketball like every sport which has changed the entire cylinder. We just don't START BASEBALL TILL JULY. Fourth all right and then every year years. July fourth now knew who I fourth New Year's and every sport is now contained into the years. We shouldn't be basing the years around the months. We should be basing our our sports season nice and tidy when we want to go back. Democ situation because if you ask me who won the nineteen eighty seven world series. I'll tell you immediately if you ask me. Who won the nineteen eighty-seven Super Bowl do math in my head? Because it'll go back right who who came seven super bowl was a niner's riskin niners. Had I think the best team in the in the NFL that you like you're okay? So when was the year that the Niner I was? Actually you know what I did. Today I went down a rabbit hole of watching. I don't know what it was if someone just tweeted and it was. I watched like a twenty minute clip about the fifteen in one. Vikings at loss. To the Falcons. Yeah time hadn't missed all year all time. And then and then Morton hit at the exact same spot into the same uprights. Yup Right afterwards. But that Falcons team was fourteen into that was like an incredible fast. Yeah but it was the dirty bird. Edible broke that. That biking seem broke the record for points scored did they at that point. Randy Moss Randy. Moss. Chris Carter was insane but it was randall. Cunningham Cunningham was he was he was just. This is pre Dante colpepper. Yes it was Robert Smith. This was ran on big comeback. Yeah one big comeback here and I was right. I mean having Randy Moss I guess is they did this thing at the end of it was so mean. They like Danny Green. Chris Carter and John Randall. Put out their hands and look at them and they're like no reason. There's no rings they John Randall. Put is big big. Big Old mid out and was like yeah. There's never going to be a ring on this trick them. I WANNA see how no no. They're like disconnect harder to show where you show us where you would put your super rules. Don't have fucked up. Yeah devastating. What a team. What are forgotten team. It's always fascinating that that's one of my. The thing I love about. Sports is like the best teams. That didn't win it. All in two thousand one mariners. Yeah and the the element of the plays into the Vikings especially in that one is that they make suppo bowl. I think if you make the Super Bowl. There's always a little bit of a different vibe about like if you get to the finals yeah is not lie yeah right it's like the Nineteen Patriots Trade Smith. Yeah right exactly you remember the teams get randy. Moss had to one loss seasons his lifetime. That's gotta be Never WanNa rent. Because does anyone else have to one loss seasons as a as a pro with the Patriots? Who knows it? That's that's something. He doesn't have the clutch gene. That's actually a fact. He does not have the question because he did drop. Touchdown Pass in the Vikings Falcons game that I re- walk and he really. Yes Tommy you good. Yes when they settled for field goal could've could've stepped on their throat. And you never think Randy. Moss show that to the mixed. Hey guys who are always talking. Shit on Jerry Rice. I don't like how much they talk. Share four Super Bowls Bahraini MAZDAS. You wouldn't take randy if you could draft all time in their prime wide receivers right this second year. Your number one pick wouldn't be Randy Moss. I I still think it'll be jerry rice and I was something else but if you look at Jerry Rice or stats against his peers. But I don't I still think that there's Randy Moss. I think that's a mouse was incredibly Jerry. Rice had to hall of fame quarterback store that's fine but Ramos had a great career slow. He had. What is Randall Cunningham Hall of Famer? He's not fuck but he's still heavy at Brady throw into him any culpepper. Who was no slaps at the time? I don't know what happened to them when they went to Miami. What does that was my favorite colpepper in? I didn't like it because it's the vikings but it always made me laugh because this fat guy I always root. That's the problem is like even if you hate it. Team if the ability MAS- Fat Guy. You kind of have colpepper. Is your size six five to do that? And I would just like Gosh dammit my boy with a dealer's choice. You can have either one of those. I just don't like that. They Talk Shit on Jerry Rice because of it like leaks Jerry. Rice still have been great even if Randy mosses better than him. That doesn't mean Jerry Rice fuck and Suck No. I agree with what you're saying. That's that's a thing that drives me nuts about the. Mj Lebron thing is that Lebron fans basically say like MJ. Played against fucking plumbers. Your what I mean like. It's it's crazy so I agree. GonNa look back and say that when they say see like Nicoli Yokich. It'd be like look at the guys playing against. What are you gotTa my wife? Just the texting me that she may be tipsy when I get home dairy gals enjoying life without Tommy. Oh so is Tommy. The song the Straw that stirs straight yes. Tommy is How Tommy acts that day determines how the day is. I liked that I liked that and then the other three are just kinda like Johnson. Baby CY scientists easy going. You think that they are like Tommy. Now is out there like all right. We're all just like do you think they're like sitting in like Tuxedos and eating your greatest manners of all time. There's like discussing the Leesburg Opera Company becomes. Tell me and be walk. Come back and it's just a tornado. Just like the ball of dirt that you see Charlie Brown and Grey poupon. I love the pinkies out. Plo Beethoven's fifth yes. Yes this is a you know. Aristocrats the Walker's Walker Socratic family All right let's take a break when we come back. We will get back in the AC. I wish we watched him Jerry Springer today just because we're all here we're having a great great no same for the second hour throat on in the background. We or maybe we'll just cruise for an old game or something for the second hour. I feel like it's GonNa be very weird not watching a movie the second hour. We're not moving in four days. Unbelievable maybe a bad precedent though. But we'll see now at draft day. We're GONNA WANNA milk. Oh Yeah Oh yeah all right. We'll be back after this back dollar band converse on the AC. What is it Thomas? Favorites Band dommage favorite group of Bon Jovi and his favorite songs. Wow good taste.

Tommy and I had a mess load of Bacon. So we're not correct so you guys you guys are weighing in after you. We had a pack of Bacon this morning. So that's a good start. Did you get back and tell me? I don't know if you've got Bacon Sausage and Bacon every morning. Yeah I only knew about the Bacon. You guys have sausage sauces. I eat the Bacon so I have sometimes but we have a choice of bacon sausage every morning at the house. Do you like do you. Do you fill it out the night before. Like a room service hanging on your door. No I'm a bacon guy every day every single day. Yeah but the kids. The kids vacillate back and forth. I am a vassily. You're not losing words t-word I`Ma Sausage guy but if I had to choose between sausage and Bacon. I think they're both tremendous Sausage Guy Yeah Beta. My face sausage room for wrong to do what to do. What south on the way to slap himself in the leg greatly. I'M GONNA keep an eye on you. Guys appraiser oversold over Mike Evans tweeted. I ain't no homeless. Was that damn good? That's what we're doing right now. That's how I feel bad for the Good Morning. Football and people yeah. I feel bad for like the sports center popular vote. Yes okay that goes without saying that I have to say it. I feel bad for it. Really Sucks to the people that cover sports but don't really have a sense of humor and can't don't have a different year like what are they supposed to do. You guys can do you. Guys can dare us to. Also we have different gears where we invite a nine year old enemy fighter. I'm not sure that we could always gift into. That's the easy one to shift into. But if you have to like what? What is sportscenter have been doing. I haven't been watching so I don't know that's what I mean. I don't know I tuned into one. Scott van pelt show and he was like it was doing like a tribute to seniors which was nice but he just hit seems like they're in a tough spot right now. A lot of programming surprise. He hasn't done a Douglaston segment yet. Probably swear too much but yeah I would imagine that might becoming. Yeah if he if he actually he talked about one guy I wanna meet and he and he He commented on much stuff last week. Yeah in there. Yeah you pissed I little bit. Yeah I I'm pissed too much to eat. He took a shot of the city film shot. He challenged your entire. What did he say he said something about? First of all says he owns the city of Philadelphia. And that's just what reason patently not true really came after greedy did. Oh I missed. All this great did like a similar ball video the Mardi but he just did it way faster than Mardi did it. He did a better. He did it faster than Mardi did it. He was just way more talented and well rounded and marked took it personally. He thinks that he was the first person to do. Trick shot videos. And now he's he's trying to challenge not only gritty but the whole city of Philadelphia. Trying to welcome it. He's trying to exert ownership over trick. Shot videos that have been around since the Internet. Call that Carmel. After he just pretend that everything. That's going to actively in your flagging in theaters. They portnoy has claimed ownership over on boxing. Yeah although Dave so the way Dave's brain works and it's very fascinating and I actually. I'll say that he he's not totally wrong. He won't full outright say he invented something but he will oftentimes say he popular popularize something and a lot of times. He's right and I was like something was invented and then he made it popular. Do you get credit for being the inventor. A little bit. I think that there's also a tongue-in-cheek nece to it like putting on the side of a bus. We invented the Internet running. Everybody knows that you didn't invent the Internet but I think that with some of these Colonizers people come and just stick their flags and things. They genuinely believe that they are the first person to stumble upon fantasy. Drafting things or undocking videos or trick shot videos any of these yes right. Exactly and it's it's I don't know the ownership thing on the Internet kinda funny like that's why got in that little do to do with in. Carmel. Which is he apologized and I accept. He admitted he was wrong. But I was just GonNa say dodger dares a lot better concept truth or dare. Yeah I agree I dare you have to ask you. That's a much better. I'd rather much rather play a game where I can throw something very physical game as opposed to where I just get dodger. Dare Yeah here. There's a Mike. Dare you to think about it. Don't do it don't do. Oh my gosh on her. Should you get us all beat up? That's a that's a sign of a good fighter is someone who will get you beat up and he doesn't even have to break a sweat slapping my lab. He's got you slap in your arm.

Alcohol by Kevin Kevin Kevin Kevin Kevin Ridiculously stupid love welcome. Welcome WELCOME COMING BACK IN. You know yes. Oh yes cases ore. Yes is my boy the rocket there listen bitch. It's been a full month that we had dogs out. Consider yourself lucky. All right I was about to say I have to count my lucky stars that I've not heard those barks and I mean there's probably been a long. I don't like the dogs weren't let out. I feel like maybe an all twenty twenty so what? Today's your day you guys on a Buck. I don't get it. It's perfect because I literally just pressed published on a blog and I think it's a perfect topic for a little dog day Friday here on C. C. K. It's a little bit of everything it's a little baseball. It's a little answer the Internet and it's a lot of porn. Joe Buck just responded to the play by play offer. Did you guys keep up with that earlier this week? So Coley mic blog. This rocket this was two or three days ago and a website porn site offer. Joe Buck one million dollars to do live play-by-play play for its Cam. Shows and porn sites. Always do these like viral. Tem Sir Yeah. We'll offer you a million dollars. But it's really just in the in the news cycle and so Darren rebel tweeted it. And Joe Buck just about an hour ago. Quote tweeted it and said depending on the site they could just be handing back some of my money handing money back to me so I'll hold out for better offer and try to hold onto my day job but I gotta say I'm flattered which is such a good reply from Joe Buck and I am. I'm a team. Buckeye always have been. I hate the hate that he gets. I think that Yankee fans and all the other dumb fucking baseball fans who think that he is biased against their team is so utterly moronic like those people not realize that as they're saying that like the. Red Sox fans in the same exact game are saying the same exact thing. It's just that you don't like what the announcer points out the bad things that your team are doing. He's always equal opportunity hater when he comes to his broadcast. I hate the hate he gets. I think he's fantastic at what he does. And this right here is showing. This is the way to use the Internet. And that's why it's so funny that it's attached to a Darrin Rowsell tweet which is like the last thing you WanNa do on the Internet and the reason why everyone hates him Joe Buck putting on a masterclass of how to use it and how to get people like you. It's it's great and it also ties in to answer the Internet. One of our best answer. The Internet questions is if you could have person do play by play of you having sex. Who would it be so rocket on? This Dow Day. I want to ask the question to you. I WANNA get your thoughts on Joe Buck and his response here. Just let it out. I mean this is. This is an easy one for me. I would have been scully doing my sex tape because like I'm not that like entertaining when I'm having sex. So like I got filling and now rating and then he would like to tell a story about some time that he went fishing in nineteen sixty eight with like Bob Gibson and then half nets. Yeah I I you know. It's sex rockets. Sex's much like baseball. Everyone says in baseball. There's so much dead. Air and dead time with the announcer has to fill in the gaps. And make it entertaining well. That's probably like the rocket when you need a break switch positions baby year. Maybe you're cramping up. Who KNOWS VIN? Scully would be there to To just to paint that vivid picture like Bob Ross for you Kinda Slow Process. So like he'd have plenty of time to just tell an old story about Sandy Colfax and then by the time that will be ready to come. I what do you think first of all what do you think job do you like him. I Love Joe. Buck I I mean he's incredible for me like you know when you think of your your team's personal biggest moments like Joe Bucks voices all the one. You like Joe Buck. Has the voice like when Joe Buck is calling your teams baseball games. You know that it's a big game so right I've never like I didn't really understand that there was hatred for Joe Buck into like a couple of years ago like when he started doing. Pmt and then I was like I don't like I get like when when t when my fans like Castro's because people like baseball such a regional sport and all of the broadcasters that you listen to your broadcasters one hundred sixty two games and then like it is an adjustment to be like all right. Well I'm not going to hear my broadcasters now when the Games me the most like when I'm nervous and anxious and tense like I want the soothing sounds of my broadcasters and I'm not getting that so maybe that's part of it where it's like definitely not and not only that but also just the knowledge you know your your broadcasters know everything about your team and then these guys come in. I remember particularly the crew when when Turner started to get the broadcasting rights to baseball. What like ten ten? Whatever years ago those guys were like messing up names and they didn't know what they were talking about and like That was particularly brutal. Jesmyn Dozo it was. Twenty seventeen. Jess Mendoza was talking. About how travis shock and play a factor in the series. And he wasn't even on human right right. That kind of Shit is definitely part of it but I also they also all act like you know. He's got a personal axe to grind against their team and literally. If you if you go on twitter during Joe Buck Broadcast and you search. You know his name and certain terms you will see both teams saying the same exact thing during the game so like the whole idea that he's bias is just totally ridiculous. But I think that there's something like you said. Yeah you want to hear your team but like if you're in the playoffs and it is a big moment then you associated name and his voice with with the great times when you hear that here that. Mlb on Fox that the he's like I'm Joe Buck and it's just like Oh shit this is about even as a non. Even you know my my teams. They were fucking in it. But I'm always watching playoff games. Even I'm getting juiced up just thinking about the name and the sounds and everything that is associated with Joe Buck. He like people people like the hate things that like the more popular. They are the more they get and like. I think it's almost estimate. How Great Joe Buck Is. He gets as much as he does. Because obviously like I can't even say that Like football is joe box bread and butter but like I always associate him with with baseball because like in the world series is Joe. Buck like you can get Joe. Yeah Sunday I guess so. Yeah he's he's so good at both. I mean that's what people seem to forget. Like how good you have to be to be at that level of just one sport like coming. Harlan is another example to like if you get a guy that can call multiple sports the highest level that Joe. Buck is baseball and football. He's really fucking talented them saying that like I mean when you think Joe Buck Acu football I guess most people would in certainly you. Because you're I guess that makes sense and I really didn't even think about until you just right now rocket but I I think Joe. Balk has a baseball announcer which is probably wrong. But I mean maybe because like I definitely I definitely would say like as a massive football fan like I think football I but then immediately like dawned on me that he's also he also calls the world series. So that's what I'm saying like a guy that's calling to that level. He's not just calling like flat. Big Games in the middle of July right the biggest games of the year so yeah I think so and I know his father Jack. Buck was an iconic baseball broadcaster. I think in the world. Series like my. I you know if you say to me like Joe Buck Broadcasting. I think baseball which I know is probably in the minority. But I like I dude. He was doing the World Series at Twenty Six. That is crazy and blindness sure. I'm sure there's a little bit of nepotism involved like I said. His father was an iconic legend. But you're not getting put on that stage at that age unless you can unless you got the fucking goods at the time when I was pretty young back in ninety six when the Yankees were doing it but I I wasn't thinking about like when you're that age and you're listening you just assume that the broadcasters are like old they're just old to you you know what I mean. You're not thinking about what age so it didn't. It didn't dawn on me until I was much older. That like he was a young man then and like I think as much as I hate it. I think of that back at track at the wall. We are tied and he was like no good he was he was who's age. He's probably what fucking Martin emotions age you know. Bush was like. Hey guys I gotta go do the World Series Tonight Sinc-. It's like his his dad. Like of course like there's GonNa be a leg up if your parents are really good at what they do in the industry that you're also getting into but like that would give them a leg up to do some sort of broadcasting like some sort of level right there and then you get that right then you have to prove that your work the shit to be on that package like you definitely have an advantage and definitely could get a job before somebody else. But that doesn't mean that you're all of a sudden calling the world series. Shut today machination. The strangest thing to me is As cool as he is and he's definitely shown the world that on PMT in recent years. And I think he's had some like he he's he's if you're a fan of brock buyer. He was Brock Meyer. His appearances on that are fucking hilarious. And everything points to him being cool. And then there's stupid Randy Moss clip where he just has a fucking aneurysm over Randy Moss pretending to show his butt and it's just like so out of character and I never understood like where that like vehement hatred for that celebration came from but other than that all everything else points. The Joe Boxer is being like a coup last dude and I would hate to be right and I would hate to be like right now when when you you know if you were one of those fucking dumb Yankee fans or any of those high horse baseball fans who think that he is biased against your team. You're not allowed to laugh at that three today. Nope you had been talking shit about the wrong guy for too long and now you don't get to enjoy it when he's being cool. Who would you have to that was I was about to ask you? Joe Buckby your pick Well and also by the way this doesn't necessarily have to be a broadcaster allowed people pick Morgan Freeman or Martin Sheen or guys with just like iconic voices broadcasters since we're talking about Joe Buck it's your guy no no because I have. I have the mets broadcast team. Which is you're not gonNA know it. Unless you're a mets fan. And you watch us and Y but the Combo of Gary transcends just the mets Ron Darling Ron Ron Darling. When he when he was doing I don't know where he's at in recent years when He. I was doing the playoff broadcasting. Yeah that's also Gary Cohen is. Is the mets play by? Play Guy. Who Does it along with Ron Darling? So Gary Cohen Ron Darling Keith. Hernandez I think are the best trio in all of sports. When Ron started doing playoff baseball he I think he stumbled out of the gates a little bit and it kind of gave him a bad rep because he was just like. When you watch a mets mets game with him he so knowledgeable he's got so many good stories. He's like cerebral. He went to Stamford. I think he would have been like a fucking like doctor if he wasn't a baseball player. So he's he just brings is like very intelligent and articulate knowledgeable elements of the broadcast but his his national broadcast warrant the best and I think a lot of people. I remember Dave Hating on him and didn't like them and I feel like he's recently found his group a little bit in recent years. But if you watch them with the mets if I could get a mets broadcast of him doing me that would be clutch but I think I gotta go. I think I gotta go with Keith. Anna's he's more of a color guy he doesn't do play by play. But if I could get keith. Anandas commentary one way or another on me throwing down because it's not in a good way tells it like it is when when the mets are playing shitty when it's a boring game when it's when it's going into the fourteenth inning and it sucks and no one's playing well and everyone sloppy and nobody's putting on a good show he'll tell you so. I feel like I'm GonNa get an honest broadcast but it will certainly be a funny one with With with Mexican economy. So who would be your case The first one that comes to mind is burn lundquist and I feel like because he's so versatile right like he can do the master he can have that real quiet voice. Oh it's like it's like a slow sex kinda day like he's got the Augusta national voice. Yeah but then you can also ramp it up on the SEC on CBS and he can scream and yell and do the whole thing. So I feel like he would be my first pick and then Kevin. Harlan is up there too because he can do the same thing and Kevin. Harlan also interjects a lot of really funny stuff that you have to be paying attention to like you have to catch his dry humor and I feel like when you're commentating sex. Like that would be very entertaining. Like he would pick up on little tiny things that you wouldn't if you were just watching it. I WANNA see Kevin. Harlan broadcast on like some Some like some Ultra Electric Daisy Ecstasy. Sex where people are just going off fucking out a hundred miles an hour and Kevin. How's it going to be like? And she puts her leg up and she's been around now she's reverse cowgirl. Oh my God there's money just go in one thousand miles an hour trying to your old. Or that's what DOC. Emrick would be great to painting the picture with every fucking every adjective every verb imaginable. That man is a walking the source. I know Gus Johnson would be a huge one. He would be is excitement levels through the roof Mike Breen. If you're a local guy I guess he does he does is on. Abc now but bang and throws it down. Sends it in a lot of good stuff from Mike Breen. That sounds very sexual. There's a lot of great choices. Kevin Harlan can also called to sex session that once like we saw him do it with the NFL. This past season. He could just do it at the same time. So imagine and you get Kevin Harlan. Like just having like zoom sessions where he just calling multiple people having sex like a Kevin Harlan Gang. Bang where he's just talking about everyone in the room we'll get we'll get catherine the mail woman to call in. Kevin Harlan doing him in her her swinger friends. I mean the possibilities. Yes you have it like in quarantine those because you can't get everybody in the same room. What is Kevin Harlan? Had some sort of red zone channel. I'm like chatting type of thing where he could like like. He's like watching like six. Different couples have sex and he can choose which one he's compensating. I'd watch the hell out of that. I think that imagine a red zone for sex if you have like a big brother type show and actually tonight. Is the premiere of the news. Netflix show too hot to handle where everyone lives in a house. And you're not allowed to have sex. Have you seen this? It is so so it's it's it's like a big brother type of house and everyone is sexy. Everyone is hot and I think it's in the UK so everyone you know rocky now like chicks over in England are all like all the hot chicks kind of the same. They have like huge tits. No ASS and they're like that that That accent and they're just like a different type of sexy that's very seems to be very unique to Britain. They all look like that. They're living in a house. And the rule. Is that at the end of this experiment at the end of the show. Everybody walks home with a bit of money that they it's a big pot of money that's divvied up amongst all the contestants if you have sex with someone or. I believe it's like if you kiss if you touch does any sort of intimacy and interaction. The money gets lessens. The pot gets smaller so everyone else in the house probably hates you if you're the one who breaks the rules and has sex so I think it's going to be a very good experiment where it's like. How much do you really WanNa Bang that person do you do you? Do you WANNA lose your own money. Do you want an entire house of people to hate you because you laws their money? So I think there's going to be a lot on the line there. Although I don't think it's enough money I think they said something like one hundred thousand dollars and there's probably like twenty people so I'm thinking if I'm going to walk home with like five thousand bucks and if I have sex with someone I walk home with. Four thousand bucks probably just have sex to be honest but But I would watch the hell out of that if there was if it was really it was going down and then you have like an announcer. You had a red zone channel rocket where it's like. This session is about to wrap up over here. Let's move over to this bedroom. This guy is about to come. Let's move down the hallway to this bedroom weed out. We got it all in one big screen for you. I think I think we might be onto something there. I love to broadcast that. Actually I mean we probably we probably could we. We gotta get on the on the phone with the right people. Talk to porn hub. Talk to only fans. I don't know we could probably get a I think that'd be great at that that Reality Show like I can not have sex for like months like years yeah. I don't think I'd be good at it. I feel like if you get tossed in a house rocket. I think you're wrong. I don't think you're I think you're you're overestimating your abilities. And you're underestimating. The people who want a piece of the rocket. If you're in a house you're in the same. How does not like right? Now you're just sitting around fine you're gonna live in a mansion that is stocked with Booze and music and it's probably like designed to be like a fucking sex castle and there's a bunch of hot chicks and they're all banged up and they're like. Oh my God. Is that the rocket. Did you see him? He was playing rock paper. Scissors Christian Yelich Day. Oh my God i WanNa suck his deck and you're GONNA just say no they're like here's the thing bitches like they wanna fuck. They don't WanNa fuck the rocket. So like here's the other thing too if I'm on a TV show that's like nationally broadcasted like who's GonNa be watching that. If I'm on it right the kids so my God no no. I'm not going to be having premarital sex no so I mean you have to stay true to who you are and that's just who I am. No no no. No you're talking about talking about. Jared corrobos being broadcast this show would be featuring the rocket launch it and I think when the rockets on and the bright lights are on. I don't think you're going to be the CHUMP. Who's like no? I'm sorry on camera. You're GONNA have some sexy bitch throwing herself at you and you're going to say thanks but no thanks. I don't think so but I think I mean there's nothing but willpower like you want to know where I'm at right now. Is someone on this radio show because I almost I like swallowed some depth. And oh by what does that mean. What does that have to do with anything like you you? You're acting as if you'd be on this show and you'd be able to go back to your apartment and sit alone and watch baseball highlights and almost swallow your dip like you're going to be in a house that's made to have sex with a bunch of hot girls that wanted to have sex with you. I have a really hard time believing the rocket. And or jared Kravis would know. Millions of people are watching and not want to prove that he could actually have sex with a hot girl. I don't believe that if I mean I don I his thin Casey rockets got. Nothing approve. I because all I ever hear is about the kids and yeah. I don't think people know what the Rock Fox I think they know at the end. I actually think we're I think if the rockets if the rocket ever got hacked I think the haters would be furious. I don't know what to do the amount of people who hate on anything the beard the hair the baseball this that that I don't think they would know what to do if they saw what was going on behind. The rockets closed doors. Now trying to explain this last night You know someone's asking me. How do you deal with like hate online and I was like well? Here's the thing I I can't personally get upset by chirp that are simply untrue. And there's not a whole lot that you can say to me. That would be true though. It hurt my feelings. Well you know it's a matter of how much information people have. And when you only have a certain piece of the puzzle you have to know that you're you're missing out on some seriously vital information that would simply say. I just wait what who him her. How many times what and I don't think they would know what to do with themselves. But at the end of the day that's for me to know For them to think never happened. Wouldn't it be nice though? Would it be nice for at least a couple of people to go? Oh Shit you kidding me? Yeah I mean I like. I'm sure like like you said if I if I ever got hacked then like that's information that was stolen from me but I I won't offer that Information Kevin as your father said it's federal crime. Federal Crime folks so I just I think I think if you were on a show though it would be a different story. I'm actually very excited for this show. It's like it's almost like a reverse. Love is blind. Where it's like. We're throwing you into this this fuck castle and you can't touch each other. I think it's going to be a display of of just pure unadulterated hedonistic trash and I cannot wait. Sign me up for that. I need I need a little something although I was reading. The statistics are out on on quarantine behavior. We've been living in quarantine enough that people are starting to write articles about how Americans are are living. And you might want to sit down and brace yourself for this But people are there excessively eating. They're drinking they're smoking pot. They're playing video games and they're watching porn. I know I know shocking crazy when I saw this when I saw these articles coming out my first thought was exactly that. Can you believe that this is happening? And second of all what else. Everyone's supposed to be doing. Yeah well that's fucking asshole. Kief put up the blog and this dickhead. His name's Jeremy Haines. He said he tweeted out. And it went viral. If you don't come out of this quarantine with either one a new skill to starting what you've been putting off such as a new business three more knowledge which is just like what the fuck shut the fuck up Dick then. It's not that you ever lacked the time you lack the discipline and I mean that guy has got to be the biggest jack off in the whole fucking world. The bigger joke. I think the bigger Jakov is the person that guy. It's like one a one. B The bigger one is whoever wrote. The US should be wearing jeans in your own apartment from La Times. Did you see that I? I don't want her jeans. Casey what is that like? They're having a headline from the La Times today. That said. Stop wearing sweats when you're working from home and wear jeans or pants or whatever life and being adult like you're paid to be. I can't kid I started this fight Like Day two of quarantine and it wasn't even a fight. Actually it was a guy who said he said. I've worked from home for the past seven years. Let me try to offer you guys. Some help. And one of his things was showering and get dressed like you normally would and I said like fuck off with this like that's not true. We actually ended up having a shocking breaking news. It was just like an adult back and forth where it was like. I like to do things this way. You like to do. Things that way. It's okay we can both just do that but I think that's such trash. I think that like if you need to do that. Fine go ahead but the idea that you can't be productive if you're like laying around in your robe his fucking crazy. I used to grab my laptop. I would roll. I wouldn't even roll out of bed. I would roll over grandma laptop from my bedside table and I would start blogging and me and Keith built a fucking New York smut empire that way without ever getting out of bed without ever showering without ever putting on a suit. Because that just doesn't define like my motivation at all if it does you find so be it but to act like you have to do that. In order to be productive is so fucking stupid and right now to shame. People like don't just trying to survive. Get Out of here well to me like I said when we talked about this week. One of quarantined like I do like to get up and shower and try to look a little bit more like a human one because we have to be on camera so there is that element to it helps me feel like I'm being more productive. But the fact that people think that in order to be productive and or quote be an adult. You have to put on real pants. I refuse to put on real pants. I'm wearing yoga pants every day. I'm wearing sweat pants every day. What about wearing comfortable pants makes you not an adult? I don't wear pants period like I mean granted. I guess we're we're coming. I saw hank coach tweeted it and said I've been wearing sweatpants towards since two thousand thirteen or whatever I understand that we were coming from a different place but I'm still getting and and getting somewhat ready for the day and putting on a new pair of pants and I don't see anything wrong with that. Nobody should be able to shame anyone wondering buttons or slippers. I would actually argue that if you need to dress a certain way to be motivated and do work that you're the child you're telling me that your your clothing determines like how hard you do your job. I could I can. I'm going to blog my heart out in a in a in a suit on a blog my heart out wearing nothing. I mean that to me is is crazy. It's like there's no uniform. For success you can be Zuckerberg in your in your hoodie making billions. You can be like some chump who goes to work in a in a men's warehouse. Uis AND NOBODY SO FUCK. Outta here with that. Talk but the The stimulus check reports are are rolling in as well and so people are starting to get that money and we're finding out exactly what the twelve hundred dollars are being spent on so that's actually hit a break right here and when we come back. I'll explain to you. What people are spending their stimulus. Check on if it's actually working and what people are doing twelve hundred bucks and we're also going to hear from a fella named he will be in and so we can truly let the Dow is out here on a Friday. Get that blogger. Oh that could be a good one. Maybe we'll have a name that blogger. It's America's favorite new game and coming up after the break. We'll talk to him and we'll keep it moving here on a Friday afternoon. All right thank you welcome to the show. Barstool CHICAGO OUTTA here. Carlson Dave we got chief. It is Wednesday April fifteenth. Chief how are you gonNA start singling out because when I say opened up to the class someone doing nothing so I'm doing just fine? I feel like we're going to have some fireworks and beginning this show so much miss remembering of history between Dave and Karl here so I don't know when one of their is not fireworks like there's always something going on here. Dave per usuals fired up. He sums up with you lately. Fired up your ads I would say. Is that a word table at the edge of your share. Okay Dave you're irritable. Let's go nonstop. I don't poed okay. I try to. I try to get you okay. So here's here's the. Here's a conversation before. He hopped into Mike the clip of white SOx Dave Classic Gum Gate of Twenty fifteen fourteen. I want to say if you haven't seen it. I don't know what you're waiting for. It's one of the best clips ever. I don't even want to say Barcelona because it wasn't on that yeah it was. It was more from boss. Yeah I was just GonNa say that goes a dynamite. Dave is on a news program was broadcast out of Chicago. Hit a piece of Gum. There was like charred on the side of his lip. It looked like and it went viral. Once that I had to rehash this like. Nah I don't give a shit that the clips out there. Go ahead and make fun of me out of here. You are not happy that that clip was out again. No I wasn't I wasn't I was just like what the fuck like who I wasn't mad. Maybe mads exaggeration. You were annoyed and you thought our camera or social media. You brought it up to me. I was like Danny Seasonal Dickhead. Dickhead like here's out goes. Here's here's how my dickhead? Rankings of the DAGO chief. You're just always a dickhead. So like you're kind of out of the picture here as Masic head Carl. You're always a dickhead too. But we'll get you in a second Danny is sneaking dickhead. Which makes him the Big Dick out of this is an all time deflection trying to talk about gum gate and you're getting doing a dickhead. Rankings on a nowhere. I'm trying to talk about your chewing gum out of your like you know followed by the side of your mouth here So this happens. Naturally we get into a conversation about other things. Chief brought up another accusation about that day that I don't know but Explained chief what happened. I between these two or all about about the chair every so this is cit. I think we all kind of went through in different episodes on that show over the over the years so when I went there I hadn't been on and Dave had already had gum gate and I was like. I remember the setup Dave standing off the side of the desk so before the show I noticed that there were three chairs. And I'm like Oh like you. Guys have three chairs for the show. I just remember seeing Dave stand off to the side. I thought that was GONNA be Awkward. And they're like Oh yeah. We always provide a chair for whoever guest is. Dave refused and made us like move. The chair offset 'cause he wanted to stand so he quote wouldn't look short on camera so dave just politicians to mayor Bloomberg delayed in presidential debate at the host. And you got Jarrett. Payton got a desk. Like normal. Dave off the side of the desk motioning. That's a horrible picture. There I can got the gum. The showers digging it up because why because he was like no. I'm not sitting in the chair. Is there any truth to that? White Socks Day. I don't remember I mean there could be so you didn't don't remember. Where did you get that tactic that if you didn't sit you wouldn't? It would look short because I was standing next Sitting standing whatever is due next to Pete. And he's a monster was he. What if everyone sitting than everyone short? Yeah you're all I don't know if he would've towered over me. I feel I don't know I don't remember seeing that I really don't okay that here's where we get to Carl. You say this most Mad Davis ever been at you in a moment. Yeah okay so local. Sports show on our local sports network. That can't use it. Go on and this is a thing in Chicago. Where like Oh sports feed. You'll go on sports feed and we know the guys over there so this has been kind of a long standing thing. But I'd never got invited until Dave and I started the podcast. I'm radio says his Barstool just goes out to New York. And so dave and I start the PODCAST. Sports feed reaches out there like. Hey you know we would love to still keep an active relationship with partial Chicago. Do you guys WANNA come out and announce the release of the PODCAST. So Dave and I were super excited very nervous to go on TV and I remember the first time we did it like we wore. I wore cubs Barstool merchandiser. You know like a white sox shirt or something. We went on their way to great time yet. Barcelona there's a picture right here. Universal Chicago Shirt. I'M GONNA PARCEL CHICAGO SHIRT. We're introducing the PODCAST. We're having fun. The next year sports feed reaches out again. They're like hey do you guys. WanNa come in at the start of the season same thing with day. We emerge that we just released. David had rick concert. That's very popular so I'm telling Dave we're going into sports tonight you know. What are you gonNA wear? And he's like Rick Concert. I'm like Donald where the Theo shirt and all that stuff. So that's where we left it. I'll meet you at the wgn studio. While I was coming from work and at the time I wore a suit to my job almost every day and so I was like fuck it. This'll be kind of funny. If I just come from work and where the suit and white sox Dave's relies is hall lies. I Call I call chief. I'm like what do you think this is like? Good idea bad idea chiefs like Oh man like this is you got to be in a tough spot where I knew Dave would be mad. 'cause then David Look like a bum and Carl would be dressed. Nope I'm telling you the conversation that I had with Karl like this before. This is before the show and I saw like no like. That'll be funny. And I knew it would like those like the little things like that. Do Bother Dave and so he is like isolated as the guy and a t-shirt the other three people are in a sport coat and Nice button-down shirt and the day was gonna feel like it under dress bummed on there and a works slow amish finished so yeah. I mean I had I okay. Head like a blazer and Lake Nice Chino's on and like a in a suit shirt and a tie but anyway so I'm in the newsroom at Wgn so this is like our low but it's still the superstation newsroom. Like their main fucking newsroom. I'm staying Dan Ryan walks by like. Hey there's all these people that I've seen through. Wgn through the years. I walked by like Oh but to be on live TV. You know this is kind of a big. This is years. It's a very nervous but I got there. I in the white sox. Dave comes in the hallway and I mean he just were around all these people work for. Wgn were guests on the show for like ten minutes. He comes in you. Mother fucking Cock sucker booking. I mean he couldn't. He was so mad and like trying to whisper as anger staring at like. We had to go to a side room yet. We like went into a son like Tom. Skilling side studio and he just fucking head you fucking Cox. You always make me look bad book. Where do with what I was wearing that? You didn't wear the t shirt that we were trying to sell. That's why I was pissed and then you wear the biggest arguments come from. Let's say no Dave. It won't be find this picture. I was in me. I can tell you what I was. I was wearing zoot suit. I was wearing a fucking cyrus. Go to Coco Kabonga Dave for those. It's a shame you can watch Davis clenching. His fists almost like ready to fucking pull his microphone on his show. Map in the biggest discrepancy about. This is what Dave was mad about. Because let there be no doubt. Dave didn't give a fuck. He wanted to sell more RECON t-shirts he didn't want me. Where Theo T. shirt? He wanted where all the concert shirt sales. WanNa sell. T shirt hold on hold on. I've got the picture pulled up. He's not wearing a three piece. Zoot SUIT. He's got a normal tie. Looks like Like a Navy Blazer. Perr pants so Okay so it's a it's a weird is looks like he's wearing like like you said like almost like a pair of Khakis Gray Chino's a blue Allen Edmund shoes I got a nice plays her on a nice tie purple tie and then white sox Dave is in jeans the RECON shirt and the extra flat Brim White. Sox had. He's right right now. It's not the same wanted to new on the same same one clean-shaven socks to accent white socks so actually so there seemed to be a disconnect here about whether you were mad if he was wearing the shirt eighty S. He wanted to let me ask you a question. I had gone on that show and made the like. Here's here's an example. My Dad me. He watched it. He's like you just embarrassed like there's people that listen to your Shitty podcast and read. Barstool that I work with kids like they're going to be asking me about this summer. He's an asshole. I hate him as much as you do. This shit about looking bad on that show. After I did all that all right so jay. She got a phone call in the moment because things were just so heated. I was like I gotta go to. Chief can't pass appoint communicating. Well now it was. I think you called me post. You call him pre show. It'd be like you think this is our eight and I said Yeah. I think it'll be funny. I think Dave will be genuinely mad which he was but I thought he would. He would get over. I didn't anticipate it being Davis. The maddest he's ever been at you which is quite defeat because Fara fog by second date. It's hard to think about you being mad solely over tee shirt sales. I'll say that I was personally very personal from I was out to sabotage image from the guy from the guy just discounted fifty percent on a whim because a hand like five hundred of them. Just chilling my apartment but I will say this as soon as he put you on the phone afterwards abdomen. He's like dude. I was fucking with you and you said that too and I'm like no it could joke you got you got conceited because I was like you know what you meant to? Piss me off. You piss me off mission accomplished like UNICORNS. You were you. Were hot about it and it was not. It was not more about him. The Theo shirt and how many are selling it was more about no. It's not has remember nothing to do with that. I was screaming at him with Dave. Not where the FUCKING SHIRT? We're trying to sell. It's worth it with Dave because you get this but like is it worth it. You know. It's like the prank like this is we're here we are later. I also remember like the string of tax that you're like like I was like Oh faulk like now. I'm like caught in the middle of these two. Like you know it was definitely. Dave like I like on my you know on my mother. I remember you being more mad about looking like a bum compared to him when you guys had this plan they're gonNa wear your shirts and then he didn't do the was it. I may have may have been pissed that I was looking like a bum next to him but it was more. The vast majority of my anger was because of that the O. Shirt you know. I'm historically speaking I. Don't you know no? I'm not a fucking white ochre like hate me like this isn't like Like I I had people in a closet and put videos on the Internet and go out of my way to you. Know get you twisted in these. I just sit here with you. Dave always have always will and this is a perfect. And that's exactly why. I didn't think it was a prank. Because you even said you're like dude I'm fucking with you like actually like this is actually. I've talked to Eric Right now. He's talking about getting Cou could you? Dm Josh and try to get him to call in all. I got to see if there was like we'll get down to. He didn't see the argument though. 'cause like sturt said He like I was like you motherfucker like I was whispering. DidN'T WANNA make a scene but at the same time like steam coming on my ears. But why the funniest part looking back on the whole thing was we had to go to a side room because we had to have it out like it could not wait. It had to happen right there. We'll give them a number eight hundred three eight five seven eight six six five. Anybody else wants to call in Yeah let's see if we get Josh Allen. Really quick feeling at he could confirm the chair story to share story. Okay Yeah and that's you either got to be other things that we might be able to find out in this day and I love. I mean Prager Davis late. He's like one of the best guys prank at love. The hijinks Eddie you know in the relationship you and David created in and around the office because I feel like you know it is. I do come into the studio and Dave will be all flustered and you'll just be laughing and you're just giggling just like we started the show but it's natural. It's not like you come in today and you're like all right. This is GONNA get Dave no I just I just sometimes I just. I think this is like the white SOx Dave magic that Portnoy's saw where I remember the first time we went into the office after the picked up redline the four of us went in. And he's like your contentious like your contentious white sox and that is when Dave is at his best as what is guards up and he's going at people deflecting attacking my Barney's always around edit. Your guard is up around me. Yo Yeah why? Because you're always scheming and plotting in employing your your kneedler. Yeah it's in the sake of content of course so I think here's the thing it Dave. He's very hard argue it though I don't I don't because I'm never wrong. I we've talked about this before but I will give credit though like once. He realizes it that he's wrong. Which can take a lot of effort? He will be like you're right and like he won't just keep like some people will argue forever just so they don't have to say the wrong. Dave's very wanted clicks in he will. He's quick to either apologize or admit that he was wrong or whatever that's nice but like what about the fact that they've is always looking for that argument. I'm not looking for. I mean I'll take you to argue about it that Teddy Bridgewater sucked in two thousand. Fifteen like that's we're talking about. That was like ten. Our arguments spread out over two days and Chief. Winning just admit defeat. But you dave you have this. I don't know if it's a good ability or if you do this intentionally but you have this ability to make points and like argue something. That's not even being argued. It's incredible and it's frustrating at the same time. It's an interesting defense tactic. Because you're like do I. It's a smokescreen like do I do. I take the bait here. It's play action. You is a lot of the times like we're arguing in the office. Like camera off or camera on will be arguing two separate things like you'll be pissed. Shit. I'll be I'll be pissed at the other thing and then like like what. I don't even remember what you're arguing about the other day boy. What's a good debate that we've had that could've just could it be settled? Won The bridgewater bridgewater but then also station hotdog. All the hot hot dog is what I was. GonNa say I talk? I can't in In comiskey that was like I remember it but I don't remember what I thought Eddie was gonNA throw you down from the three hundred level gaining comiskey. Aw Oh yeah well. That's because he was just trying to be fucking he was trying to. You know pop his shoulders like all th I ha. I was right about this too. That came out of nowhere but that was whatever that was the. That's neither here nor there because that was not the original argue. Sure sure your original argument was I. Don't even I don't even know anymore because Davis twisted type said like I say that you say gene and Jude's hot dogs are the best. How dogs on the planet I say. They use Vienna p hotdogs. They can't really be that much better. Then of thirty Fifth Street Red Hot. You're saying hot dog is a hot dog is a hot dog. As long as long as the base ingredient is the same Vienna beef. Yes that preparation. The various between like the best hotdogs isn't great. It's not like pizza places. That's my argument. But some fucking argue about this offensive lineman and being like six three thirty. They're the same you know. He came from not like where it really does. Come down to the intangibles like the difference between a gene and Utah and someone red hots thirty. Fifth are the little things do they. Steam the bonds. We're doing we're and that's my point is people who care about their product and care about making those dogs that matter Steve You. Their argument was that they boiled the hot dog. So Gosh Dave Gene. There's a reason why. Why why okay. You tell me whether known as the bus. I think I mean there's not a. There's not a billion places that do what they like that that specialize in hot docs but if it was that easier one anyone's going. Oh Yeah we'll make the same. I mean thirty fishery in my opinion is just as good as Gina. Jews which is just as good as good as red hot ranchers just as good as fat. Sow's it's all fucking hot dogs. That's those girls are thought. I threw them. Because they're across the street buoyed you get. My point player fills pizza and and veto in Knicks and house. Our way different from each other. But they're all fantastic that at that point. It's just a this is your pal. It not have the ability to differentiate between dogs on like maybe it who the do boy the variance isn't that it's not that it's not that big started making this debate as a recent. I don't know you said that original. That's exactly what I said. And then we got to the point we were going to. I was going to pick out hot dogs from and we actually kind of funny We are in the other room. And I'm like and we were figuring out how we're going to do this on camera to make it content and we figured out that we have to just eat the like only eat the hotdogs like no buns or anything so you could pick out the best. And you wouldn't be able to do that the I would. They're all fucking. Pm beef hotdogs how it's impossible. It's all the same because they're cook different. I don't know how many times explain the link but to have a proper control. You would only be eating a hotdog. No toppings know Bono. Nothing you understand. Yes I've been like. This is exactly where white sox get. You is because now in this conversation about hotdogs. He's going to get you on the hot dog challenge and like wool. Spend Time Circle in the circle in the runway on. Like we'll know what's the control and you can have a bond and you you know I know how you like your mustard and it just gets sloppy. Stick to the hot dog but then this is where it's like. Dave like now you've reduced like you're getting rid of the original argument because like Portnoy does it just. She's only because he likes it and that's his control still grades of sausage cheese. How much it's cooked all that the consistency. That'd be the same thing as to how some hotdog places are better than others. You CHOSE NOT. The differences is in like crazy. It's not crazy like I couldn't. I couldn't hotdogs by of course. Of course I could. I could go and Steve Abban and get a Vienna beef hot dog from jewel or Marianas or whatever and make a Chicago style. Hot Dog almost is good not could not even close to doing that for for next million times you will never make a hotdog is good as them. You personally you both fucking hot dogs. He put them on a bunny chop up some onion celery salt. You're thinking Dave they know the science you know what holidays gene jus been around call could gene and Jude's guide right a better white sox blog than us a bigger white sox fan probably. I can't write for Shit did you. Did you boil your stake? Like you're GonNa blow your hot dogs. Can you take the microphone him? Let's go to. Let's go to George in New York. He wants to weigh under the hot dog to pay. Georgia are you there. Hey guys how're you doing today? I love this argument but I gotta Say I'm an East Coast Guy I worked in Chicago. Plenty and I'll go into wiener circle in the middle of the night with some fat black woman behind the counter looked at me and says what the fuck do you want. I gotTa tell you. There's nothing like maintenance or Rut site. In Clifton New Jersey they throw them into a fryer and they rip them aright. That is part of the deal in there. But that's good. He gives us some qualifications. He's coming into the conversation he's like. Hey I know wiener circle so like I'm not a complete outsider like I'm a valid hotdog opinion guy like that's how I read the wieners circle in Chicago for a number of years for certain client so I always go to wiener circle. I place my father told me to go to. I don't think we inner circle is people don't revert because the food is good pizza. Experience like you say right behind the Counter. Who is you know she gives you shit that gets the point? It's an experience I don't I don't even think I don't think anyone talks about. The food is accurate but famous because of that level of service that you just described and are we talking runs deep fried dogs. I hear Deep Fried Fried. Or what's the difference? I've had deep red hot talk. It's deep fried. I went to graduate school with Johnny the Greek Johnny degree. 'cause the son of the guy who founded and Johnny. The Greek was also on our New Jersey housewives. He passed away A couple of years ago but Franken told me come there they have this incredible secret mustard that it just flies your mouth it frame by frame for trump's review there. I gotTa Tell You. A lot of people love it. Wind out the door into the parking lot. I WANNA dried. We'll we'll have to figure it out. Where's it it's in clicked in New Jersey off route twenty one? I wrote saw. Thanks for calling George appreciate it. No problem take care thanks. Also it looks like Josh is on. The phone is shots there. Josh we GOTCHA. What's up those? Yeah Josh how are you? I'm good listening to that heated hotdog debate. I live like five blocks away from wiener circle. So I gotTA defend Weiner Circle come on. I don't know maybe maybe people like winners circle wrong. I think it's a girl dog. That's what you guys set right. It's it's the whole deal milkshake. And what you order there and the lights and you know my first time there. I was tricked into getting it. And no idea what I always enforced so that. That's part of the appeal for sure. I I hear. I think it's grilled what's makes a difference. What are so Jasper sitting here. We're talking about obviously the the great gum gate of whatever year it was and there's a couple of stories we wanted to get you to clear up. We'll start with chiefs version of the chair story when I came on it was after white. Sox David had his gum fiasco and I remember being like puzzled that there were three chairs. The desk was. I had watched the David you a hundred times. And he was standing off to the side. And you're like oh well. Yeah that's because Dave refused the chair so he he didn't want to sit in the chair with you and in Jared what I recall is. He had the cheered there but he was like halfway between sitting and standing. You know when you're like that awkward position where you're not sure if you WANNA fully sit down but you don't WanNa like fully stand up either so he's Kinda like you know like hunched over. Yeah I don't know maybe it was. You know I know and Dave has been good to us over the years and I think he would be the first to say he was pretty nervous. I think it was. Are you kidding me? Yeah didn't take you were nervous and you. That's where the gum comes in but on top of that your posture. We needed to work on that. A little bit and Yeah so there was a cheer there but you are definitely not sitting. I wanted to find myself a little bit. I got in there and I came from. Work actually took off work early like our early. It was ninety five degrees that day. I showered in an ice cold shower and my shower. Take and I ask you guys when I got there. How's my hair? Look a new all over the place and you guys have fine. You didn't even offer me a makeup room or nothing like I dare to Tom. Skilling has a makeup room. Why do you not get Tom? Skilling makeup room the other thing about the the snapshot there? I don't know why I just noticed it again now. But the IPAD that he's with throw the tennis ball to the VELCRO strapped on your hand like that's the I usually for the yes. There's too I've had ask one for Jarrett one for myself. And we have those for notes and the prompt or goes down or anything like that and I guess Dave just took the IPAD and yet had a little velcro fell. I told you I took it though. And he's you usually carry a baseball with you. Dave publicly speaks. That's not a joke. Something to put an digger Phelps. So that's why I took and I remember asking you guys. I'm like I need something to fidget with. Because I know what to do with sues your ipad or to charities I I'd have to go back and look at the video probably mine because I was sitting next to him. But it's fun you can. You can have some individual. You know one of those fidget spinners you have had instead so basically we're we're talking about your your showered intakes. You're already nervous about high of luck. Then you're nervous because you're on live. Tv even called Jerry. Walter Payton one point who signed one year shooter Walter. Payton son no you sat next thing on TV with Walter. Payton Walter Payton show. You corrected yourself quickly after you corrected yourself. You did say Walter Josh. At what point did you realize a guy like? He's a trump right away and and the key was so you know again. The posture was a little off. We just fine. He could he. You know because behind the desk you couldn't really tell but the gum stop immediately. I started to laugh and when we took the one shot on Dave and I knew I wasn't on camera I kind of looked at her. And He's thinking the same thing we're both like holding in laughter and you know David Gum. We could see it physically coming out of his mouth and so what we. Yeah I would have rather you just laughed in my face because I would have rolled with that all day but I just had like. Portnoy said that the like the gum had a life of its own like at a brain did and honestly. I didn't want to embarrass you by being like do like. What are you doing with this? I kind of wanted it somehow go away. Which didn't happen for another like thirty to forty five seconds when you finally realized it and this is the second part of the story where you you put it away and you put it under the desk now the next day when I went back well when I went back the set I found the gum and I took a picture of it because it was like someone had taken a piece of gum and put it under the gym stand. You know when you find these like nasty pieces of year-old gum. So that's what I found the next day. I took a picture of it and you claim still. I think that you'd never did Daddy. Never put the Gum under the desk but had visual proof so I I wouldn't do that though. So maybe it was like I WANNA DNA test on that God damn gum. Where's the sausage? The sausage sausage pictures. I'm guessing because I think that like I try not to watch a video even though it still happens to circulate the Internet like every three weeks. I try not to watch it quite if I were to watch it again. I think you can see me like try to like you. Know swiftly. Put My hand over my mouth to grab the gun. That's hanging out on my lip and I'm guessing I would try to shove it in my pocket or something and it just didn't work but I like I wouldn't just go and like like you said like stick it under the the like Jim Pressure to turn it on knowingly right Kinda think you blacked out to be honest and you were in the heat of the moment where you took it out of your mouth and you just put it anywhere you could and maybe a thought it was your pocket by you know no one else's chewed gum on our set that I know of and that's what I found so I mean yeah another another beef I got with you is. Why didn't you tell me to spit it out? It was too late. That's what it was. I remember basically we went live with the interview and I realized gum in your mouth and the point. I was like I tell them. We're just like let's see your own. Yeah probably retrospect I should have been like lose the Gum. Even it was awkward that we already unlike TV. But I don't think I noticed it until we already were rolling and that was yeah. We probably should have a producer or someone do like to get dave gum out of his mouth but if you're doing But we weight and that point it was it was just something we had to roll with intimate for great vision. So honestly I'm happy I didn't tell Ya Ya and I'll give you credit because when we came on the show I think the next year. We're getting into this like we're getting into the segment and so it's me in white socks day the first time. I was on with the judge. And you in your like Dave. We have this new segment. We want you to to do the highlights right now for like the for this white sox game in days like okay. Whatever I'm not prepared and he's like an you have to chew this entire pack of Said. He gave him like a foot. What's it called? The is easy to look for. Yeah bubble tape tape in in Intent Dave and I was like a Weber option. So I just I am. Yeah so I wouldn't insure like four or five times or whatever and the like if you look. I don't even think we would talk about it on the show but I'd always be holding a baseball because the IPAD looks so ridiculous so I just wasn't yours. I think baseball's in my trunk IPAD wasn't yours is this is he the most. Is that the most memorable moment or I mean I'm sure you have more successful and significant moments but like is at the thing like what stands out viral to you from sports. Yeah it's as far as viral moments and that that clicked by far the most views on youtube and I don't know if has on our website but it's it's for sure the one where when people recognize the show they're like Oh Barstool. Dave like the gum in or if I just bring that up like yeah we know about McDonald's my show so yeah it is for sure the one you just point to that definitely made its way far beyond Chicago. 'cause we're you know our local TV show but this was like anybody who is aware of Barstool and even people that weren't that now are there like Oh yeah that guy with the gum. Chewing very loudly on a live interview set But no it was. It was great because it It was something that look in the grand scheme of things. It's just you chewing gum so it wasn't like four on air. Did something humiliating? It was funny and then we had the Web Redemption. So that was cool. But yeah that's not talked about enough either is that I am. What when when Carlin Dave both came on I think it was the next time he was a year later. Whatever was knowing he's going to say yeah You guys had this little pep talk and I remember that in our hallway before we went on the sports office and I guess there was some confusion about what the wardrobe was gonna be because they you wore like a t shirt and a hat. I think maybe like barstool themes and Dave was dressed up in a suit and Carl were that I. Is that what it was? Basically you got to run over the road map. Yeah Carl Carl. You had told you would told Dave. Hey we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA wear Just the Barstool and then you came into full like suit dressed up for and see the appearance and he was really test. You want to continue with that story. Yeah we we touched on earlier in the show. But I don't think I didn't. I didn't know anyone saw pep talk. What did you see? I saw dave furious. Were very upset. It's the most mad. I've been mad at all. These guys pointy. It was the most mad I've ever been at anybody. I've worked with ever any job I've ever had and I got one for you because it was like right outside our sports office and it was a public place in. You're not prepared for this to happen and figure like mad as hell but at the same time you're like I'm also at Wgn TV right now. And I don't WanNa get kicked out so you were caught up in a weird spot. Yeah I was like. I was yelling at them but I was whispering curve. Slow making small talk. I guess what's up with you? Guys is like Dan. Rollins walks by. Larry Holly Walks. What's up with you? Nothing is that you motherfucker. I got to get on the show. You son of a bitch but this goes under the radar to. I'm going to throw Carl under the bus right here. Remember when he called Jordan. The first time we went on TV I do. I was GONNA bring that up Carl. You had your Your mea culpa. I guess you know it was at least twice. You did it and maybe we have to wake the great to tell you because again. We're trying to be polite to our guests on the year. We don't want on you. It's I don't WanNa be like calling me the wrong name but your which is fine. You know you call. It is it. Is Josh Yeah Josh. Your face drains. You drained all the color from your face that you were bounce back. Yeah you're bound check well-padded embarrassing for doing mental fist bombs. The first time you call him Jordan I was like yes. He looks like such an idiot right now and then we came back from the break. And you're like I apologize. I was calling you Jordan in. Your name's Josh Josh. Is there anything else here that you know we close on? You know anything that would never got the full record of anything. Remember those days or like a big cat. You've got a big cat story from having him on big cat on our first summer Twenty fifteen so. This is like before big cat was big cat. He was well known locally but there was before part of my take in anything nationally and before he kind of took off and honestly he probably got little too big for us after that so he never came back on returned our phone calls or DM. So you know that's neither here nor there. You guys are always loyal to us which we appreciate but No the first time we tried to a big. I was one of the. I guess we tried to get a little bit more Interactive with is most of the guest we had on originally if there are media people there were Kinda like just a regular newspaper. Reporters Radio folks or or bloggers until big cats personality. And what he did. We tried to think we set it up where we had like whiteboards and we had some stuff Like pre prepared questions for him to answer like One of them's about Derrick rose at the time and you know. Kinda come up with an answer to like does is Derrick. Rose accepting this twenty fifteen so rose at the time wise still kind of a little bit of a controversial figure right. 'cause he he had said the stuff during that fall about like wanting to keep his knees healthy for his son's graduation which was like fifteen years down the line and people like what are you talking about and so kind of some stuff about De rose. I remember but he was cool with doing that. It was the only time he was on the show. There is no like Gum or wrong name moments by But yeah you guys are more loyal to which Which I appreciate all right Josh. So Thanks so much for hopping on what are you up to? Now what's What's going Dave Dave literally? He sends me a game. It's like hey we're talking about the gum moment. T go on Mike. Sure like what time like when you need me like literally now like Okay Cool I. I'm glad I wasn't doing anything productive and I just finished up an interview with a high school coach for story that I'm doing 'cause we're all working from home now. Which is I got my little apartment office. Which is weird. But it's kind of what we gotta do and And Yeah so. Try to stay busy. We have a new show so showed that obviously has been talking about. Sports seed was Put the rest will say in December because CRTV gets Pulled off the air new ownership. That's added that to cut the cord there but wgn.

Josh thanks again obviously had a moment and Barcelos Chicago Law. We really appreciate you hopping on clerk decrease yet it. Thanks Josh See Jordan. All right so On that note we do need a break here. SO BARSTOOLS. Gago parcel radio. We will be right back. We're going and why I'm kidding. What is this we're back? I don't recall was coming in for split-second who met did you pick that one? No negative no eric would we got a DC. Does you guys pick that one? What can we get some background here? There's always Oh fuck thank you for that. No we're always sitting like I like sitting waiting if we don't know sometimes we have fun picking the songs out somewhere sitting and waiting because I never know one of the other guys in the room put in the break. Music comes on. We all kind of look around. Who is this? I like? Dc Eric the series producers to pick up the the have come back from break song aspect opener because but lately we're in like a standstill with our camera guy here who thinks it's like it's like up to him to pick the saw every day. I might you. You're shaking your head. No 'cause I ask you know you do not fuck you. Ask around here. Well I mean I can't say two minutes before when you get here so I asked I go. I go Dave Song Today. What's the data's April Fifteenth? We've been doing this show for three and a half months thousand. The you've asked me maybe three or four times that and the other time. Just that's just a lie other times. He'll I'll be a hey. We're playing this dog. At key he tries to slide it in there and hoping nobody asks them to place. We'll throw a hard veto at times to. He's been looking forward to putting a song in for the opener and Dave suggests something. You're quick to be like no God already have it a tax That's what comes to the music. You go why aren't they? Get the text at twelve thirty one thirty. I said no one's here so lights and my who's smoking whizzes eighteen hundred six. We gotTA talk face to face fucking postal service. You pick up the phone and sat out of tax message. He's GonNa get the Pony Express. Ed I mean we. Everything's gotTa be behind closed. Doors around her is it. Because you don't have enough control in the office if you want to exercise as much as you can over these little parts here. That's exactly Carl fucking creep. I I will say this there is situations where day about all play. This all in already settled. You know what I mean it would be like. What do you mean like? What does that even mean and two? Is it just? Because it's coming from Dave like would you? Would you talk to Edie the same way? Sure he will thinking about it. You would know it's just When I get taxed I say I don't know no one's here so I'm like I do this and then I don't want to send another text back. Oh just kidding. It's Dave stupid fucking song choice. You got a lot going on there. this you know a lot going on just not up here. The best part about this is that this whole argument right now. A stemmed from our our Guy Stephen. Dc playing. Move your body. So I have never even heard this song. You've never heard that thinks. Oh maybe repick fan of that song. Steve is that who it is they new right. Are we probably just have to go back to all of us picking Sean for a week? Yeah I think we have to go back to that. We started with. But I still want I. That was a little Stephen DC. So we'll still do. Steve Come back from break or Eric or whatever but regardless That was that was great to have Josh on to hear about the background of the of the gum gate. Various safe cleared some things up for us for sure Dave. Do you have closing like defenses. Here you know we put this into passer is asking me because I was never will never will. I have this theory that the gum chewing video has gone viral yet. It hasn't viral at any moment. Dave could wake up in like that. It actually hit Big Lake. It becomes the next boom goes. The dynamite has the potential that just like a ticking time bomb. I don't know I mean a happened. I think this was five years ago. I also feel like if that video came out in two thousand eight it would have been supervisor. Probably a download it off lime wire. Yeah like video you. Download e bombs world. Something like that like that. Video goes nuts for sure. Get a virus. It takes down the whole family computer. I really hope something. Super Fuck embarrassing. Happens to chief wounded while you'll be right there and why is it always me? What's your issue with more stark? And it doesn't really matter who because they don't pay you would handle me making fun of you. The best was actually take it personal on TV or was it just on the Internet. No that was on. Tv was on channel nine fifty three okay so without being honest with you. I have where you like. Fuck you like a little upset. Yeah Yeah Yeah but then like what like Josh said? I like blacked out a little bit. I didn't I didn't think it was GONNA look as bad as did because I felt it on the edge of my mouth and I just like you know did whatever like whatever did it. But I didn't think if you watch the whole interview it wasn't like it wasn't that bad other than that but no obviously Everybody's GonNa think like that because like you know. It was the first time I've ever been on. Tv and nerve settled down like after commercial break. I'd say 'cause you're on a whole half hour. Would you be more? Would you be more embarrassed if you did what I did with the Yu? Darvish Scoop where you completely fucked it up and we're just like made fun of for six weeks or would you rather be the guy that people go back to honestly I would be the Guy Because for I mean for one reason like if I would have done that. After like the James Shields Cuban it would have been a really bad luck for me and then to like. That's on the Internet. I know. Obviously there's videos on the Internet but it's way easier to pull a tweet them to watch a whole veal if I don't know. Also it's kind of like maybe your first introduction. To bad things happen to a partial is overall a net positive. Like big cap lock to the next day. Sure you got way more followers from it like a great point. I. It's it's like. Yeah it's a low moment but it's now it's just like party your store. Your brain fishy. Yes in the moment right pissing them all that like this was obviously kinda primitive and I didn't want like bosses and Shit at my job. I was like dude like 'cause I looked early. I'm like I'm leaving work. I'm sneaking out of here. Yeah and then I house plus they get to. I pulled off never catch apple to office and the I didn't say this when Josh's output so I worked at the old six hundred West Building. Everybody knows it in. Chicago and to get out of there with a car and didn't have a car at the time was four. It took fucking forever and so I would take a divvy to and from work. I would get home in half the time so I remember. I'm thinking to myself. Oh my God I got like an hour and a half to get there. I gotTA shower. I WANNA shave. I WANNA do my hair blah blah blah and I got out. I don't want to this time taking uber home. Because it'll take me toys time so I hopped on a fucking divvy and it was sweltering heat in the middle of June sweltering ninety degrees. And I'm sure you can look up like the historic or some shit on it and I so I got on the fucking divvy and I got home and I was just soaked in sweat soaked in sweat so you were doomed from doing from the START I was. And here's the other thing. I get an uber to go up to wgn studios and I'm shower. Intake knew I was going to be sweating through the suit and everything and I looked at the driver. I'm like hey crank the AC like I need the AC bad right now. I'm going doing a TV parents or whatever AC doesn't work and he just roll down the window. So I'm like Oh hanging my head out the window on the way of Western Avenue. That's tough yeah. It was it was I was. It was a losing battle. I think that Josh Jarrett I think they like it was a sabotage mission was a sabotage me. I've I mean by who those two I am. Larry if you're listening in on that too. It's amazing that they are even able to keep you on the air like the way that you showed up. All this shoveled not sitting in the chair to income herald over the plays like the fact that they got through that without actually sabotaging. You is like they're pros. Let's let's take Jeremy. And Chicago's Jeremy there. Jeremy What's going on? Yeah I wanted to add to this Hotdog DEBATE HERE. Dave's making claims that the dog is Vienna. Dog is a dog which is one hundred percent aronie. Is You know. First of all being a dog have different weights. There's different skins natural casing their skin lists then within the natural casing classification they have different snap levels Portillo's for example has their own specially made a dog. You can't even buy them and not dogs. Jaw Their skinless retail product None of the places that actually serve Chicago hot dog even use those chairman. What's your qualifications? Here how do you know so much dogs? I've got a Ah Body here to prove that. I've had a lot of hot dogs at my day. Okay there we go. So you're you're so you agree that it's not a dog is not the same everywhere you go crack crack. Creditors bashed amounts of differences by the actual hotdog. My point is is. That tastes doesn't fluctuate near as much as pizza. Can you agree with that? I mean that that that may be the case but the bottom line is hot. Dog needs to be defended. And I'm your take on hot. Dogs is just thrown is thanks for calling NBA. I mean you you came with facts. We appreciate it how I like that. A guy named Jeremy used the word eroneous couple times from wedding crashers character. Move Jeremy all good stuff he brought up a good thing that you're crushing back to this argument where you're not like where you're like. The ferry and says keep going with the variance argument. When in reality to remember you were like it's fucking dogs and you are are all the same which now we know in further clearly. What was the gestation plenty made the VR dog and a Gash on a roller? That's not the same. I don't know if they even do that. Gas Station but still like that's your original team was like gene and Jude's isn't light years ahead of red hot ranch but you're giving to good places I can tell you two different places in that like it's going to be a lot different yes you. You're arguing two different things. Always yes he are. Don't you fucking pipe up over there but you see. Here's the variance between really good hotdogs in Chicago. Is it that big now? You're like Karl side your pal. It's just not there. You just never had book Blissett. Do Listen to the words. You said the variance between really good hotdogs in Chicago. Isn't that great? Well Yeah if you're at standard of they're really good then you're saying you're saying the top the bottom aren't that far a fear to look at it just the top. Yeah maybe you're so the bottom is the same as the top so like if I went and made my own hot dog would suck shut the fuck up. Let me talk. Say It's a four on a on a pizza scale. Four point -O Rookie score. If you go to any good hotdog place a hotdog isn't so good that it's ever gets into the eighth or ninth. I don't think it's all it's all like a four point one to a seven point nine. The variance isn't standards. Don't appreciate talks. That's what I do. I like here and there all right see. I'm craving cheese. Dogs see like hotdogs. Different Rick in Vegas. Could we gotta Rick Okay no wreck? We can't go to wreck. That's upon SARS guy. It could have been ready. Just got hung up on pawn stars Dave. Because we're too busy arguing gas station dogs. Would you apologize? It's if if we can like fact check and figure out if that was rick from Pawn Stars then I will apologize because that would have been awesome. You're sure pipe down. I think his name is right. My name is Rik and this is my Poncho. You Know Rick Harris we bring this up. Nobody loves her own jokes more than wreck from Pawn Stars. We're notice he he He he laughs always because those guys are kind of like trashy I mean. I'm talking more like the sun and then Chummy Rick. Do think he's as smart as he comes off as on that show. He's I would say he knows his shit tone about your pretty knowledgeable guy. Yeah you're sharp. Yeah you can't fake that on TV. A jack-of-all-trades knows a little bit about everything right. Heavy Samurai sword expert. I'M GONNA fly him in from Lake. Tahoe. Like I love that guy. That's the best show of all. He knows just enough to call the expert. Dude I some would say. That's a sign of a great leader. Dave how many how many do you think I think we talked about this before he did? Yeah it was like four something I think I probably seen over one hundred episodes of Pawn Stars. It's great detail daytime. Tv fantastic daytime TV also. Marathon Pawn Stars Health experts say sports reading align with one minute to go. It's not be played in front of fans until fall of two thousand twenty believe it. I think it's fear porn mattress fallacy. Just said that we can. I mean obviously the no fans is the crux here but Dr Fazio said we can theoretically play sports this summer without fans Yeah I've things are just all over the place. There's been a document leak Supposed says we're going to start reopening on May I. I saw another thing that said social distancing Harvard. Study that says social distancing should be in place until Twenty twenty two. So it's just like no one knows anything right now so it's just you know the fans. Are we getting sports? It's I I'm like I have to start like not even paying. I saw a clip The other day it was it was when Dr Foul. This is like three or four days ago someone asks Dr Fallacy. If president trump is like fallen is always like the. Dan told him we should shut down. Shut down today like I recommended thirty days. He he said thirty days when I said forty five days whatever the X. number was he made a forty five days like apparently per doctor. Faouzi president trump's fallen his words so foul Chia. What do you call out? I mean how fucked who FAO G Faouzi who knows he's like maybe the most policy because it's EPA UCI NOT EPA. He's a number one name in America. I say name once in. That's how I always say she's everyone's doing all right here. Are you alright Dave? I'm doing swimmingly are you? I am all right. Carl bow chief barreds man. This the went Wednesday Wednesday radio. This is like the end we do. We do our podcast before this. We do a lot so there's a lot of tensions on Wednesday Wednesday radio ends. It's like we've been with each other too long. Yeah this is a lot of audio can only take so. You're wondering why I think it's just Dave's kind of cranky needs an APP that could be a unit an APP David. I'm my nap Guy Really. No no that's all right that's it. Thanks for listening What DOES SHOW PARCEL CHICAGO? We will be back tomorrow ahead. Parliament is going.

Aliens Infestation - GMMF 46

"Everybody looking episode porky. Six of gave my mom found. I M Mike Boorda's Boorda's space marines with me tonight private Stephan. Jd Jabe overmanned Stewart Stewart. Stole nine so a Sergeant Michael Hughes pulling rank ethnically. My gamertag has admirals unrelenting outright. Both of us God understa grunt not bragging or anything. But I'm I'm technically not net uh-huh oh and Stephenson's this was your pick introduced the lovely game you pick for US tonight. We're playing alien infestation. Infestation for the Nintendo DS which is a Segue game. I think by made by Gearbox Bay for technologies and it's a tie into the alien franchise also version game called alias station but we're not playing that one. Yeah I didn't I tell yes as it turns out. There is a lot of aliens games out there. We'll be spoilers for aliens and a game movies probably forty year old movie. Maybe we'll see and you can't can't we spoil Predator. PROUDER doesn't Spoil Alien. I'm not space slasher movie. Everybody dies except Ripley. Spoilers spoil it for all the aliens up until and Jones who was Jones again okay not new and a no paxton though they will die screen unceremoniously. Let's spoilers for me. I haven't got we'd have this movie never happened but we're talking about. That never happened taking movies. Those who don't know was alien three was almost a completely different movie and they like they redid it like they've road out several cast members. That didn't come back and it was a lot of fucking drama ended up being a movie that nobody really likes so slowly worth it one in two or three is garbage. Resurrection is pretty good and Prometheus I would say. Resurrection is good good but not not a good movie. Way Ratchet good in a what the fuck even thinking kind of way where there's just so. Oh phone and then I remember like you too but like every time I go back and re watch it. I'm like I remember liking this movie. And I'm like Oh yeah. I only like parts of it. It's like a lives by boy is like I love Winona Ryder. But like she is just so fucking weird in that movie. She's just weird so out of place mall. We're just gut. I don't think we've mentioned this game came out in two thousand eleven for the DS. I can't remember if we said that. Or Not yes help like two years before before colonial marines and three years more alien isolation combined different games read just supposed to be a DS port of Colonial Marines intern. Then they just decided to go whole new direction of a good games alien franchise completely cancel plans and reduce so this game is technically one. It's kind of a metro. Vania games or definitely is one one person called the Metro and light and one of the group and I was asking questions. It's definitely it's definitely Metro's light. I mean everything is more simplified straightforward word. It's the worst talking about this before we started the podcast. It's a halo wars of aliens. Metro game it is a metro game. But it's so easy that anyone can play babies. I Metro Vanya Alliens yeah a whole word in this kind of takes place within the story. I WANNA say between the aliens used to connect two three okay. They noticed the same year on. I'm the US Silica. Which I didn't realize is the same ship that all the marines came on in the first place in the second movie alien? So is there ship Adrift in space. And that you're getting up after the events Aliens Union this basically after they know like after Wayland you Tony. We knows about the aliens fully. And they're like we gotTA fucking stop this Shit and before they start capturing them for for research and development the I get on the ship. It's just you and the enemies right like I mean not the aliens but the Union of Progressive People yeah the UPN. Yeah so stupid yeah. There's like a weird little felt like they were trying to like a starship troopers thing where there's people there like revolting and he has to go stop them. I guess star Search Uber Uber Slash. Hillary stifling that's all you're doing your part to stop the aliens I'm doing my apart face hugger just slams onto them. I think I read like like Stewart. said that aliens three supposed to be something completely different. I think it was actually supposed to so have the. Up Pianist so this was supposed to tie the two together but then they dropped the whole storyline so it just makes no sense at all. You go read. Yeah like they. Somebody released the script for it nice and like the original movie and it was pretty good. Yeah they even made it into comic book. Actually that just came out a couple months ago. Yeah why the fuck. They decided to to change it to blogs they actually went through with it. But I know Michael Bane is I says name like being Michael Biehn. Yeah Echo being not like he was he originally a huge character part in alien three he was supposed to be the protagonist before they were like out. We need Ripley back. Because because Ripley's went sold the I do movies and so like at some point. He demanded that they pay him. The same amount of they are going to pay him for the whole movie. Just use his life snus thank you I think they just did it right now. Like little. They cared they were like fine. Is your million dollars. Probably wasn't much that I mean that this franchise was gigantic at that time to get the anymore Knight's still say it's fantastic. I mean well maybe not right now maybe like a year ago I would say that franchise is now owned by Disney. It's all good luck with that. What I gotTa say was Alien Covenant? which if you live? But I don't know I don't like Prometheus covenant very much don't either they're okay like hey. These are better than alien three but there's tournament I know I know David fincher was asked to go and do the director's cut for alien three. He told Fox ago. Fuck themselves it. 'cause they just kept messing with it when he was trying to created. I think it was his first big budget movie too and then just screwed him over the whole time There's also a lot of really funny things about Aliens were like James Cameron was filming it and they filmed in England's so Oh oh yeah I know where you're going with this. They had an English crew and they all walk in he hated James Cameron like actively aided him they thought he was just like some shitty director. That bro Crappy. Schlaug like Terminator. Not Wrong he had like multiple. Well he like. He had like multiple viewing parties terminator to sit down with crew so he could like explain it like explain himself as director essentially like like presenting himself as a director to this crew and they would not go they just never went oldsmobile. Screenings nobody showed. I think I think the biggest part of it the to the daylight to take breaks for like teen crump BITs stuck in access. It's so awful but it's so funny to have a director in a group so against each other is so funny he he wasn't even against them he just like they just hated him. But what imagine that. What are the movie turns out? So can you imagine if like fucking like Quentin Tarantino's doing hateful eight in the entire crew hated aided Quinton Tarantino fucked up every shot on purpose. And they're like we're not gonNA watch dogs a fucking over your down all right well since one that we'll get back to infestation so this ship to your on the show which I didn't even realize right away that you're on the same ship from the Aliens Aliens Movie Yet. which didn't even compute but one thing is really interesting about this game? You play as different marine except if you play the way I play at the same for marines the entire game. uh-huh anybody die the foot. The marine system is really cool. I actually really like that. The lives where you play. Okay so you play as a marine but you also have a party of Marines and Replacement Marines you find throughout the game and if you buy your spot is just taken by that marine like they just send it in another marines. Take your place. Yeah exactly what you are kind of feel like I got attached to some of them to like. I really don't want this marine to die. Will they like apparently they brought in people to like. They rewrote those characters Let's see here as we like to carry. The game's dialogue was rewritten. Twenty many times to have like twenty very unique characters. According to Wikipedia at least showed it shows like every character is so as so soling carefully built out and store. No there's not much syrup. There's a lot of dialogue between the characters. Took them which I never did and the dialogue. How long is so unique to them? It's a really interesting way of going about it and some of the characters to will even like like you could be happy to find one and you're like oh I'm getting another soldier but then some of them will be like no. I don't WanNa go with you. I'm just GONNA sit out. They won't with you if you don't have any openings right like I know. Glad you're sure but I'm not with you anyway. Yes some will not go with you period. They're just there as part of like story fodder Alia like Alec thank you ever get like Marine Kim. She's just part of the story She's really weird part of the story. Kim Kim is a interesting character. That's cool. I mean because I think I had the same four characters. I remember trying to get people to join me. Nobody would join me because I was always full because I wouldn't uh anyone died. which was a problem at you like how I wouldn't know I should've I did not like some of the people start with but I just couldn't bring myself to let them die but I do like when the game starts off? You don't even fight. I WanNa say you don't even think aliens for for a little while you just can't keep running into those androids constantly Not even entering robots which are so they kinda remind me What are they called working? Joe's alien relation your host to be here. That is the scariest sow on I have ever heard in a game in in awhile. Was Your Shit Run L.. Man You know what I'm talking about because that that fucking game. That is one of the game. We're I beat it. I got up. I was sweating. I was like fuck yes and I have a sense. Of course. Wayland is not whalen gitanas seats on I think. Up Up isn't CPI data. What you P P running them? And it's like why would you design a robot. Like specifically for the Uncanny Valley I mean the whole purpose of those robots which is to kill you I worked for the their. Up owns them but let me all you had to duck and hold on shoot shoulder hell down the fire button and just like from the game mechanic. I understand but from like a in universe company mechanic. It's like we're going to design. A robot looks almost human but not quite so he's just as uncomfortable to be around as possible. Well it was made for war that makes sense. I look it was it was just they. Just come here and give them guns. I Yeah I think so. I think they like Hackenberg something. This game does not really any story other than like your your commander talking to offer. Not Oh God scenes anyone else feel like as soon as the guy. The Red Jacket thinking name is companyman or something. It is considering Ban Ki as soon as he came on. And just like. Oh there's the bad guy. Yeah Claire West Name. It's like it's the name Joe Sears or something. But he's like you like ha ha you can just call me company man. It's a joke in it and they use call him company man for the rest of the game. It's whole game like just give you an example. How much they like? One thing I I do want to mention there's no guys online for this game period period. I always played with the show because I I mean before the show. I guess I'M GONNA I'M GONNA look up a guy. Nothing I'll try again nothing. Like what the fuck doc his name is name is. Sean Davis the most generic name Sean Policies. All the Sean Davis's out there Davis she says my name is Shawn Davis Generic Company Man Chances Jails and you are sure I wanna say a midway through the game now. It's like the last third the game or something. It's not hard to find a lot of like detailed information on this game. Am for some reason but even with a PDF. There isn't a whole lot like just the plot of this is is to senses. The SEPHORA has discovered the USS USS Salako Adrift in space. After the events of Aliens Nailing three with Colonial Marines are sent aboard Salak to investigate and recovered the life-form aboard the ship spoiler alert. It doesn't go well. I do a weekly to get like information on all the the candidate because at the end of the game you get a like a bio of of all the marines. I wake you to read up on it and like thank God someone out. There has an alien spread already. That has like a little bit more information nation but even there. It doesn't have very much. It's it's incredibly surprising because the scheme didn't do badly you got like eight eight point Tuesday point five. Almost across the board order did pretty good. Yeah one of the Raider. I mean nowadays on the radar one of the most fascinating things things. I always found out about Alien Laura. Is that an alien just by itself like you can actually see an director's cut of the first movie where they find Dallas. Alice is that the Lincoln secrete like a liquid to build around its environment and so and if it trout's like human being inside of it it will eventually turn it into a base hugger egg overtime. which is creepiest? Fuck yet. It's something that kind of like fell out of the movies never never get captured the meaning capturing can't you rescue your marines like you'll find them inside some of those events in those caves in the Gu Yeah right okay. I didn't because I didn't let him my die. But I thought that I because I knew this game years and years ago and always. It's always been on my list to Sunday someday. Sunday played always wanted to play. This being listed sunbathes might have been came out to get out but now can't like all the marines have different colored armor Lonzo to make them stand out but also like their marines. They all have the same uniform perform in character model. They're just different colors different colors and then like in the little. When the League Little Info screen comes over them I talking to us? They all have different. Like I actually love this aspect of it. They all have different shit all over their uniforms. Like full metal jacket style. Like one girl is like What was her name? One of the girl marines you come across is now like texting your friend Joe and like sent me a picture. Jess Jeff Jill as a pallet or pink power symbol on her shirt and she's like I'm texting my friend. C. T. Y. L. L.. I I love that Chow Beta. Yeah mainland about. Yeah I just found her yes she had like a power icon John as you had like a little panda charming offer and a keyboard about and keyboard. Yeah because you have to have a keyboard if you're invading your on your space ship being taken ill and she has its extra friend back like also like when you get on the Salako which you don't find out right away which I do like how they wait to give you the wait very long but they do wait a little bit for you realize Oh shit. This ship isn't very safe. There's a fucking queen alien that established a high of aboard the ship. Which I I did think that school until I fought three three of Queen's at they're taking the ship that you're if nothing space and create starting to make more aliens and take and take over over to reproduce and there's actually like a good a good amount of unique aliens that appear in this like you get the gorilla aliens or like a gorilla? Alien like it's called like the really alien praetorian bigger version. Come across a a Jockey Zeno Zeno Wharf which is like knows who owns the space jockey in the movies. I think you like you see like some. Oh God is it in the first notes and Alien Aliens. It's the second movie I think where they come across the space jockey with like by backgrounds. SST's came the alien and they actually put that in this game which never was never seen any of the games before never found the John Wall. Aw Yeah Yeah the space alien that has the snort knows from Stalker. I suppose engineers like things from the first movie Yeah US ingineers this based off me. Okay same same stupid thing. I guess they were jockeys before for you had Prometheus which wasn't until two thousand seven or something. As far as I'm concerned they're still called space jockey's title yeah. Ah Go cool title. Let's say something else. It's up to people it's up to everyone. Who Watches the franchise this but I choose to ignore I imagine Jayson Covenant or like different universes? They're close to it. It feels like they're not really connected. Acted Sleep fucking change and stuff that I think has got a dumb and they say this mysterious creature. That was an alien now. Everyone found really interesting. Let's talk about it for ten hours. We should also explore the fact that the reason why the aliens look the way they do and why they're different is because is whenever a face hugger latches onto something whatever it latches onto a kind of like reflects its DNA when it becomes a full grown Alien Evil Asari. Yeah which is why and Alien three it's more like a dog than a human because it. Yeah it face the dog and that's how you get the Like the guy who was at the Queen Mother. That's like the alien human briefly hybrid. Oh Yeah we're able. That's more human human alien but even the aliens themselves are in the first movie when you come across the alien that's still not like they are original form because that's aliens created read from human so they're already alien human hybrids in the first movie more human than a human ya later. They're human penis monsters in philly assisting ernest making a joke about a certain Hollywood executive right now we kinda touched. This game is a metro venue but they really Kinda they take off and it pretty early as you're exploring in the first part before you get to the first response which is a fucking queen. Let me let's start with the game. I'll fight McQueen off. You see item that you don't get to like the last quarter of the game you see a rent and I'm like oh I can arrange soon because you need this wrench to lower valve or opening valve some shit. You get rid of steam. And that's when I really realized. Okay I mean this game is a metre read any of like. Oh it teases you because you end up going back to the Salako four times in this game you boom three times he coming back. Yeah yeah or is it. The wrench wasn't the wrench. Also found by a guy named Alan Guy might be. I wouldn't be surprised but say accurate. Stainless steel is today. Bay Too much fucking health. Oh Yeah I I noticed. That was kind of pissed me off. The really in the guy was having a good time. I'm playing it. Things are going normal. Then I got to the first Queen and and I just unloaded so many shots from my pulse rifle and I had to keep loading and saving in between the fight to make it Nath when I really. I think you're meant to actually lose marine. Just when you die you started the exact same spot you you are meant to expect you because they sacrifice at least one or a two marines in that first boss fights so because when you get to the next planet and the next area which has lv four to six or you're going to find marines that you're not gonna like in my case I'd say oh. Oh that's nice. Look a marine. I talked to him. I'm not joining new. And then I just kept going and they died eventually. We should say that there are ruins where you can't take kind of like a breather a break and get some points the communicate he asks basically they're basically save point yet. I really like those. You walk any like your whole team. Is there relaxing. Everyone does pose. I wish I wish like resident. Evil was like that. I wish when you walked into resonate will save room all the characters were there just like taking a load off. That'd be so awesome. If they just like getting you five dance by. They might like they are they. We are as unique as the Guinea five. How did we have a ball now? We haven't had. I wonder how Stephan I haven't made one a while. That was Stephanie did it. I know the problem it had to be done. I niamh cool. It rhymes with doom. I did spile when you go to. Lv Forty six. And I remember I remember the same plant in the movie fans in the movie in years and it is obviously. It's Kinda like a shred of like all the alike. The original spaces down it. Just four to six go on like the alien go see like when you own. Lv Sixty like all. The space shock is basically crashed directly directly in front of the fucking Shit. Yeah sure yeah. Yeah it's well it's a little town is what it is is a little colony that they set up there that was attacked by aliens and alien to yeah. LPN before two six was like it was initially just a colony and then aliens those like. Oh people live there now now. Nobody's like why the spine now and it wasn't fine new Alien Day. No is not fine. All just makes airmen or something loophole Leopold risers character sends sends them to try and collect the anymore so they could basically have people bid on them as a weapon. Basically everything anything that happens. In in the alien franchise is Wayland. You Tawny the en- shitheads and doing research. They're like they're like worsfold. Volt Tech they like Like Bra but the worse when he tried to write out Johnny and Alien Three. I think it was the only three right. It wasn't aliens or they're like Oh yeah. They went under decades ago. They're owned by Walmart now. Aliens like got them it just it's Samantha. Joe You're talking about. It's a joke from aliens that would have done really really well and like robocop or demolition man but tailings. It's just like okay. Are we doing this now. I might get shipped for this but I kinda want your opinion on let we played methods early. Should not too long ago. Do you think the backgrounds in this game were better than the backgrounds in that game because I I would say spy a long shot this game that like the backgrounds in the animations like I know this came out pretty late Neil feels he has eleven. Yeah yeah it's like ds but it feels like a call by like like late ninety s game just with better animations like. Oh Yeah I could see. Ada really liked the art and the art style and animations game This game molly always have great stuff for the three. Yes came out the same year but three yes came out in February came out in September. Well obviously it was four thirty s the regular designed for I said this came out after the DS came out. And I was like the week after the League. They don't say dumb things on this podcast everything we don't ever but no I. You are also right about that so I that was my phone such as you are. I did like it. Did like the explanation in this game. The fighting the aliens was fine. Like I didn't really have a problem with like they're a little scary but at the same time they go down pretty quick for the most part with your with your pulse rifle shotgun at career. I never really My God wondering one or two hate Kale everything. I play the fun doors. It's great to document is like you can find their shocking. So stupid fast. It's so funny to name just like Bang Bang Bang Bang Bang. I wish the pistols more viable. Because it's one of those video game pencils that fires as fast as you can push the button. Oh Yeah Oh yeah look to and perfect dark I am A. I'm a huge judge advocate for better pistols and games absolutely and not just saying that because I'm a Halo Fan. Well I like the like titanfall. Pistol little fucking fantastic multi pistols. You can get. Oh yeah apply titanfall too. I used a pistol mainly for when I played out or worlds I almost I almost exclusively use the pencil but I played it. I do think it was cool that they found a way to connect this game with with with the franchise itself. Even though it doesn't zip really like it connected away that doesn't affect any of the overall story of course at anything. I thought I did like that but one part that I. I thought I was doing it wrong after you finish. Lv Four to six. And you're driving that you get into that big tank. I just can you believe that tape blow up. It looked like he was about to blow up and I was missing tons of aliens but nothing happens. It can't below. I just kind of let it go and I'm like I wonder if I can go until it. Crashes Crashes on its own or is it just like scripted that it will blow some point. has crashes eventually but if it blows up it to start you right back of that sequence okay. Yeah because I got the wait was that scripted. was I suppose a crash that apparently you can do like perfectly and you still crashed. Take the engineer's ship coming that that section actually earlier reminded me of the shitty second level on Terminator Arcade. Remember the shooter read John. Connor would be like in the backseat. And you'd have to like Save Them. It reminded me of that. So you're talking about. I was reminded a game I used to play on on my mom's old Nokia Kia phone and I was like well. There's shitty mobile games before phones could connect to the Internet. Keller's like one of those fucking helicopter games but there was a tank mission. Russian into that was very similar jolly old Nokia phones. Were having the best. The Best Games mine had address. I don't know Nokia phone but my phone head. Tetris Tetris petrous. It had snakes snake. Helicopter Game Yeah. It did have snake. My Mom's phone more than she did. Enjoy invention earlier about the space jockey was supposed to be like a face hugger had got on him. Is that why you had the big chunk hanging from his face. I think that's just an alien is what it is. It's it's like the inbetween of a space shocking and alien. Why is it so big because the same shock? These are big I mean fun facts. Yes in alien they actually filmed that scene where they come across an alien alien remember. They film the scene when they come across the space jockeys and they used to make this face look bigger. Oh I didn't know that training school alien. You're in for meat. theus they're more. They're more normal. They're still big but they're not gigantic like alien. That was a short space jockey. He's short in his his crowd. Well I always did. I think it was so cool. That when you saw the scene of the the space jockey in the background sitting in the Canon in this game game and it just made me smile because it the fact that they worked in. You're in the same place for all. This bullshit started at least for the earth. I WANNA stay. They didn't know about the the aliens until the movie alien like Waylon. You Tani wasn't aware and enright. They knew by even before we got all all the bullshit Prometheus movies they still new day now they program the robot in the first Toronto. Remember Bill biggins and low building action. I thought you were making a name for all right. She has a name but it's funny. Was it now Tom skerritt right it. I didn't you on them out. Don't spigots Tom. Skilling Dallas Now none of them make make housing to say. I haven't really watched the movie in years. I didn't watch it for this episode. I just remember bits and pieces floods the first the last week because I had never seen before so I wanted to have some kind of knowledge about where we're GONNA be talking about. It's Ian home that you're looking for or by the way in whole is ass yeah I'm confusing the ANDROID with Dallas. Who is the I get Just boost attorney. Now it's What's his name Harry Dean Stanton. who gets the pressure? Yes it's been a long time. I Balian I was GonNa Watch it for the show and I was like Just watch like I think. I just watched like reviews of a movie series. The last week I stole remember anything from Dallas as characters. The one that gets the hug from the Zeno more he reaches out awesome. I love that Zane. It's it's so the first time I watched that movie at that scene. Scared the ever loving Shit and now I just laugh at it every single time like my mind. It's always a different sound effect when the alien reaches south of Hong. It's always like surprised how that first movie they really made the alien such a like terrible thing and then now again this game they're just frigging cannon followed alien hold down the trigger button Taking care of another complaints I have a series like a VP. Fuck Davey movies but ADP. Okay I'd like to have seen like the Predator on top of the Super Antarctic pure your mate and he's just gunning down aliens like Hordes Spas Valence. And it's just like aren't you supposed to be the best killers in the fucking universe and you're killing killing thousands of their fucking zombies and saw that movie in theaters when it came out for anyone who hasn't seen Alien just look look like Alien Hug Jif and it's so funny it's so intimidating and then so funny I'm watching it now laughing thing that did kind of one thing that did kind of get to me is when you go back to Salako. Second Time I do think that was cool that I want to say that one. That company man shows up for that still later. I think you're right. Yes remember. I just remembered that they make you fight a second fucking clean at the end of that part and I was very like not again step. That fight was cool. That was the good boss fight because the whole point of the boss fight. Is You get into that yellow crate moving things from alien to aliens the cargo ago loader yes power and you have the free. I thought it was. I said as soon as I showed up nothing. It's like it's it's it's the equivalent of like a spaceport left. But it's also the coolest ever made in my like. Get out of the way metal gear. REX can power loaders ear no wrecks way better but that was kind of cool how they instead of having to fight the thing. You had to go around around and hit all the airlock so that will you could eventually jettisoned out to space. May even have a point saying I don't know if he'll die but it won't be our prom or something lapatin of that nature. Yeah it's a great attitude for these marines. They have like fuck this wherever it lands ends. That's where it is the last week I finished the first two movies and this game and I think in all three of them some form of alien gets jettisoned out. Living Era luck yeah sure recurring theme Alien. Now Kill the same space we need you die like I'm assuming they can't live in space right now. No they don't think should they are in space with you. It's I mean they thing about alien vault so when you do the zero G walk towards the end there outside with you point who plays his game. I don't think you've survive. reinserting plants atmosphere but it had pretty sure they can survive space because if they don't need to breathe and they bleed after it I guess they're okay saw. Oh Well No. It's it's all like space physics or I don't understand. They call any physics because I don't see him is me space which is very easy but I I did like where the story goes Apple Story. Actually that Queen and they're like all all right we're GONNA go to Waylon you tawny base and see what's going on and that that was cool. That's a cool part the high from the rest of the movie. Just keep going down running down down on Phobos. Oriole Moon of Mars Do I should've known that it was like it was like the Titan before tightened became a big thing. Titan is one of Saturn's moons Titan was never a big thing he is fucking fantastic. How dare you say on Saturday? When a Saturn's moons that we believed to be like capable of sustaining outstanding human life? And so this is really funny thing. Where if you watch like some sci fi like some Scifi media will pick up on things that that NASA says and so for a long time like Phobos was a planet that showed up a lot of media and then Titan was planned our moon that showed up and a lot of media titan was in? There's like a whole art in Eureka which we've talked about before. Remember I will follow your e. O that moon they go okay like in. I'm a cowboy BEBOP and a bunch of other stuff Jupiter's Moon Ganymede is a like a big planet like very briefly we'd always going to be habitable. Not It's like as soon as as soon as we realized the planet is more habitable than another one side medias like yeah that's the one that's the one that's going to be an every movie for the next five years until we find a better pretty little thing. I notice speaking of a phobos. Like when you got on the base you starts out where you see nothing everything. He's just destroyed their. There's nobody there's no people there's no alien. There's nothing and there's a scene where you walk through an x-ray reader and he stops in the middle this shows. Is You know his x ray of a skeleton. Someone's going to happen with this at some point. You didn't just great this for the hell of it more for this game. Just Kinda You a calm before the storm even already been gun alien down but it was just a really cool. Little scene really made me smile being. I think you get a key card. And then then then the aliens start popping out and you and you realize Oh. No sings went bad at the station. Of course how you SPEC the Caja Monster that can cut itself and opened up the door. I I just don't understand the concept which happens in some of the one of the alien franchises something. Maybe resurrection Wrexham. They kill each other and then the blood opens the gate and the national they skate it up. They kill the weaker one. They also like they're also oh running experiments on them and making better more for I don't know why whalen Gitanas so obsessed with making better more efficient killers because they always just kill Oakland gels Rela they exactly around where it's like we've made way more in the lab. The BRA has use of like we put our craziest most insane. Eccentric scientist in charge of the base so when they fuck out it's like Oh yeah obviously we shouldn't have put the fucking Ashford's charge waylon. We put the best scientists we had available this moon base. And everyone's dead. No but this is introduced the alien I fucking hated of the guerrilla aliens as wound. We take again. Yeah I mean I remember as a kid and I know. These weren't in the movie but I was terrified the alien movies but I loved the toys and I had a punch of the alien toys. Even you know they have nothing to do with anything but it did have really alien. Toyota's black and blue or blue veins on it and the head but yeah I remember that to me. That was cool so I mean I I guess before came out the game but I don't I don't like him in this game figurative me. I always assumed that because they were called gorilla aliens. They were like the they were working on creating them with guerrillas like like Earth guerrillas. But they're from another species on another planet that they like they're like hey what do we call this thing out. ALYSSA'S GONNA fucking guerrillas spe. Looks like a monkey. No we named really aliens until the recording. I never even realized that the the alien the way it looks based on what kind of creature impregnates make that that idea never popped head until this recording even believe it. I mean it makes sense. I mean it can apply the mass effect in a whole New Light right now with these things are basically no more familiar NBA aspect. You sorry I remember I remember. I can't remember you sorry to blue. Do Things yes long-time Larry Blue Aliens. La they mate with other species and take their DNA and cree lake better. Sorry I don't remember any of that. Well it's not like we are as part of your group or two of the three games. I didn't use her anyway. I didn't like her. I'm racist it was great station. We're just talking about. Why only are is one of the best companions ever and this is? I mean if you're going I did like how you're going through the whole base in this game. I know as you're going through the base I did like it makes you go all the way to the bottom of the high enriched Nivo and then you go and get smart gun smart realm is fucking awesome. I didn't use it was awesome. That was that was the best gun I am this game and you didn't a lot of times I felt like you had to duck shoot people the smarter and you can standard fire away and just blow through. Yeah I mean combat is the little we'll divisive and the you can hide behind things and shoot over them without looking at blind firing. Yeah but I mean just in technically for the Game Amos pretty bad ass that they included. I mean the smart got itself as bad US gun if they have looked up to them in the movie. Right yeah it's it's it's in their chose the smarts from aliens by doesn't the smart gun and not work or works but it's shouldn't work aliens like it's it's based on like the infrared scanning the Marine Sav but the aliens specifically you don't show up on infrared scanning 'cause they are like old wanted really definitely mentioned that it apparently doesn't work in their physiology. Yeah so it's like Eh. It's this kind of famous aliens story. That doesn't work like an alien plenty of Marines in this game. I I mean just a cool garden. They needed iconic things. And then you had to go all the way back up that fucking elevator. Nothing that I thought was really cool game. This game does reward you for exploring. It's boring but you will come. You run across tons of bents that you have to throw a grenade at the blow up and you go inside the vent. Usually you'll end up seeing alien hot or alien high with aches exactly and I think that's that's where the Marines can be that we have mentioned earlier if they if they get killed. You'll find him. I think strapped to the wall and even rescue or something I want to say but the thing I thought was cool and you'll get upgrades a lot. Your guns all the gun can be upgraded three times. Yeah get enough material upgrade all three of the four guns in this scam game that never use the shotgun bucket. As you didn't use it. I was like straight for the shotgun after I got it I forgot I had it so by the time I went to. I was going to shoot anywhere already. Had like either plus two or plus three pulse rifle so I just stuck to the pulse rifle and so I got smart gun and then when and I got the flame pride said Fuck it could. The flame has almost infinite ammo. Like it doesn't run out of AMMO Miss. You just hold it down through law then it recharges right away that there are certain doors that you have to use the flame flame thrower to open the go off. Yeah the alien blood that melted the door. Whatever they put on the walls and Healy enlightenment in his in several the movies is like the now famous scene of you'll love the way he's standing still in the fall down on the shoulder and they'll be like oh what's that having having he'll that's in like all the movies now because they can't get anything new home? Every movie has the same exact scene of like. Oh It's this Gu on me. There hasn't unbidden alien movie in a long time. It's also in every non alien movie with a Monsour like Oh it's above me. I'll give you that the bloods rhetoric. That with blood. Yeah every time is like a monster in a movie that isn't a slasher somebody walking and joined in a hallway. They'll stop and blood will drip on their forehead. It'll be like Oh what's this and look up and gatekeeper. That's every fucking movie every movie from like aliens like two thousand ten when they finally were like. Hey we should figure you grab something new. It's only it's only dommage for like five years. You only like five straight years of being an amish and then it's just a cliche and it gets bored boy. I use the pulse rifle tune in this game. I love the polls right for it. Looked so fucking cool. I liked it. My only issue with it was you run. I felt run out of AMMO in this game. Because you shoot a whole fuck ton day which I it fits the whole if. It's the aliens vibe where you're just fighting Hundreds and thousands of these bugs which I thought was good like they throw lots enemies at you and the one thing that I love Metro. videogame game does not have is if I the heat loss or I get confused. Every kill get gives me experience and level up. This game didn't have that and that made me a little sad. But that's one thing I really love about Metra Vania titles I love Kathleen Eslami I just love looking at the polls so fucking weird cool weapon and it's also like I love like there's a behind the scenes there's multiple behind the scenes of alien and like some big of the armory and there's talking about it and it's like the pulse rifle was made with a basically cut up a thompson. Submachine Gun Spanish shotgun into a regular remington shotgun started like duct taping together. That's gone that's it. It's so weird thing as we were talking about with that base we fought fought you end up fighting the third. The fourth boss in this game is a fucking giant gorilla. Alien that you fought earlier. And that's why I wanted to quit this game. I was getting so pissed. Stop trying to fight. This guy was a flame thrower I would just sit. I mean he just would not die and I wouldn't sacrifice a marine and it just fucking ever to kill this guy because he had with the flame thrower first off thousands against a shotgun take your age but I use a flame thrower on him but it it this is where they have. The bosses have way too much healthier fucking tanks in this game like Mike. Mike Is Thinking smart here. You know it's got more surface area so therefore flame doors should be more effective against the hostile with a few Inform information about the game game and again in a message. Board had said used a flame on his boss to be fair. Yeah there's no like there's very a few guides if there are any guide I certainly couldn't find it my getting. I've looked hard but I would have been nice for some of the it would have been nice. I think for some of the bosses or as like Oh this is like the way you speed it. Because he had died to a couple of the bosses of I. I'm on really on their That's the worst part about this game. As the boss fights like they just they go on too long and they overstay their welcome and that sock because overall this is a fun game. Yeah pretty the what the boss you have to Open open the airlock into space. And it's like a three level fight and the platform platforming. This game isn't great. I don't print style. You have to perfectly line up with the above you to jump over it jumping and oftentimes during the middle of combat. When you're trying to do that and it's like I just like chill a little bit or have a better platforming mechanic a like a long way to show up like trying to avoid this alien on the ladder is trying to? I've got a funny part when you're when you come back to lock in that last part of the game others senior. I had to go and hit the ball. Hit hit the button to Destroy the engines. There's one part where you just have to jump Hook the hell do I do. I'm running around looking around. I watch video you he just walks over and jumps up like a whole. I just got a little bit I. Just I don't know why brain just could not put two jump up and grab the Ledge I'm just like swit- somewhere and going back and forth going through. Just switch somewhere. My dumb brain works I every time I the words ALLOCCO in his game it'd be like Salko Sirocco Star Wars. I WanNa play Star Wars. We also the plate fallen order this week because very short and so I was like I gotta burn through all in order to have a chance S. accurate way a really fun game. I was GONNA say anyway better than this but this was this was surprising. They've done a lot of fun playing this. I had more fun playing fall in order because I was at the Lightsaber by. I'd say you're probably wouldn't worked very well against the you know morphs no you know. 'CAUSE cauterize it so it actually really good personal. They're not they could easily grab you and give you a hug. Yeah but if I was dead I dodge out of the way I assume if I have a lifesaver. I'm a jet again. How my brain works? There are no good. I'd have gone like the second. I pick up a toy lightsaber jetta. Good thing aliens. Real Yeah if I array if we're real I would. I would willingly accept aliens being real. If jet I reveal to that is the trade off I would be happy to me. I'm sorry for the thousands thousands of people that would die overnight. I WANNA be a jet is so sorry would be a little higher than that of Alien Planet. Well we'll soon. There's only like a couple aliens. I enough time for me to jump in my eighty seventy seven and fly off to another planet. Let's be honest probably okay but when you get to walk on the last part of this game that's when I think that's when the company man shows he gets my brain gene is just that game informer article that goes was it Corky. wrote it where it's just our worst. Our Star Wars Star Wars Star Wars Star. That's just that is just the back of my mind. Twenty four seven sour taste. This reminds me of star. Wars believe that after podcasting with you for almost a year a hundred percents you bet and agree with it. It's like fifty percents Star Wars Ten Percent Dragon Ball Z. I'll give you both of that resident evil in there. Who maybe that leaves thirty percent for like trying to other shit during the day and oil fax? Anyway it's like it's like that's like one percent may DJ. I'm like one percent like artifacts all right One thing I think it was cool when you get back so ARCO. And he's like and they're making a comment about the company man. We're going to stop you you. He's and then that's when he activates. There's a ton of voice on the ship for some reason what event but you just shoot them and they die really fast or Bernie honey. I don't understand that it's like John. Davis is a weird funny geared to be in the same he only the real thing he did was the shoulder. Waylon you. Donnie was behind this. All which spoiler alert been behind every single alien problems ever happened in the franchise shock. I I mean just arable I I feel like the story of this game like aside from not existing which was a problem. It's very few. I feel like uneasy way to make game way better. Since you're just like against this random corporate dude like he's not even really he's he's like the leader of the scientists wayland Johnny. But you don't really get the sense that he's like Insane Genius Air Anything. He's just like doing his job. It's like all right like wait. I'm telling you the memo just came in the Marines. If they had just written a little bit more story I feel like I would have really loved it. I really really loves Sean. Davis's character because his works out for his his role. He's just a random late. He is just a random corporate dude for wayland indecency but it just needs to be like a little flushed out. Yeah the key component. Definitely Of this game was carrying about the marines. Let's go with them. I think you bet everything else was like back burner you know. What would it would've made this story fantastic? I kept. I kept imagining this. If Sean Davis I'M NOT WE'RE GONNA come company. Man I love how generic his name is Shawn Davis the same level of character as the as the operatives from firefly serenity where he's just like violently. Loyals Away Lindsey Tani. And he's kind of like this weird genius that you get a sense that he's just a cog in the machine but he's very important 'cause he's like controlling the whole situation and he's got this insane plan but he's still just corporate goon. I feel like I would have loved. His character of that was the case. But as it wasn't just go kill. Sean was like all right. He's dead only character that companyman even had is right in the end of this game when you you fight the fight a gigantic clean. Would I don't know how the hell they fit three queens on the ship all avenue in. Yeah and he's like saved me he's like why these heating like that was great advice. I save you save yourself asshole you find the the Not The not the Queen. The empress yeah she called empress. Are you saying that. No there's there's a the Queen Mother which is like the Queen Mother Slash Mother Queen got two names. That's like the heads you know. More like the absolute top. And then there's the empress which is is under the queen confusing now and then under the emperor is the regular choline. It goes Queen Everest Queen Mother and then under that isn't there. Brewed mother brute mother and then they like the various like okay. So so Queen Mother. Then empress then queen then then Praetorian then all the different kinds of soldiers drones in the guerrillas failure and then right at the bottom is Freddie highmore. Jerry Coyne somewhere above other. He gets alien with his voice. This Magog they expect you to knock out all these frigging barrels and drop the drop like platforms on her Hottest hottest take forever like me. I wanted to twenty to thirty minutes. Sitting there just bury her with the flame thrower again and took ever I. I message Mike and I told them like. That's weird my My last Boston's glitch. She just stayed in one place. I just shot at her. It took a while though if I was talking about just like. We're doing this. Go Go ahead. I'm going to be honest. I use I use the cheap for most of the game just for ability and I like to stood under her and shot out of her with the flame thrower. And it's still a solid ten minutes. It was ridiculous long and even during that fight. She's calling help. I chill call a little alien that we'll come in this room. That don't do anything but look alien movie now. Maybe we'll shoot it. Maybe we won't picture game as it was meant to be and I'm sure it was meant to be this insane climatic fight light up. I I imagined they were picturing it as like. Oh this is going to be on par with like fighting crave. And he's going to take up. Just GonNa take multiple. But it's not. It could have been really cool if you're going through. Different areas was dropping ship. But you're just in one room if it feels like a beard mix matinees like the worst parts of like a metro fight mixed with like a Super Mario Brothers fight where you're just in this giant arena fighting her and yeah he could have been done so much better. If your team in the early nineties really you know what this is too short. Let's make the boss by take half an hour. Yeah sounds great. Yeah did better. When the climax of this game is the second half of the game when you finally get back to fucking Lochoe Salako? SIROCCO stars That's that's the end. Game is the last three hours I was like well. Why why isn't this spaced out a little bit better? Why is the first half of this game? Five different areas and in the last half of the game is the climax as a little odd in pacing pacing and then that fight I was like the animations are so good the backgrounds have been so good at this point the game starts with a like beautiful screen immediately interrupt by all the dialogue in the world should have flew into allegheny was going to be all game starts with like it's got like the starry background and transposed above that is the sprite of the ship of the Salako and they're like moving independent of each other and it just looked so good and then all the star wars tech starts coming coming up. But it's like it's like three times as long as the beginning of a star wars. It's like a fortune now. Novella Rio let me know all the story of alien before I jump into the that wasn't necessary because that really mattered. I'm glad it wasn't because I gave them halfway camp. The bucket feeling that the last boss five better and Super Metro than they did in this game like they implemented a recluse recklessly. Who is like you answer a room and you see like the alien had or something and you realize that you're just on the third floor and you're like I level with the alien and you've got to travel between floors and like attacker somehow or like launch like I'm imagining in my head a fight where you're pressing a button and a part of the ship is like shooting out and hitting the alien and that would have been way more cinematic and maybe not as hard but I think in for the climax game heart but isn't necessarily as important as climatic? I agree. It could've been it. Could've been a really cool fight knowing what they were capable of and it just it kind of fell flat. uh-huh this the second queen you had the power loader and then injected out the airlock and like why couldn't every fight be like that every other ones just shoot until it dies pissed off at us. I agree with all the reviews of the game. They're all like like I said they're all like eight eight point point. Fives like the losses for people who never jumped on the ten point bandwagon. Who It's just easier like? They were all like almost all of them. Were the same score as like. Yeah it makes sense eight like with just a little bit more work. I don't know if there was pressure because it's hard to find some back. Only background information we could find like I said is is on Wikipedia. where it just said that? They brought him to rewrite the characters and make them more interesting right. If I don't know of this game was pushed at any point it just a little more work a little bit more tweeting. This game could have been a nine or ten easy. I agree a little bit more. Like pizza suggest. Fix some of the pacing issues and push some of the. The boss fights to be a little bit more interesting a little bit more difference. Yeah two things. I want to mention about Chris. Game before we get with it one. There's a joke scene where you have to get a card key and you have to find a soldier. WHO's taking a shower and you grab his towel and you get discard Keith? That about that what that was funny like that. That was a cool. Like this is how you get an item. Continue on the game you steal it from a guy that was the. Hey what are you doing. You didn't threaten to shoot him. He'll just like high he'll drop down or something and then the process. You're explosive so that you have to use for the next story parked at wet. Yeah that was stupid and everyone knows phones. Don't work if they get wet. That's why that's my worst APPs on it rains. Everyone knows that or as is no way to keep explosives bright brains your deadliest enemy is moisture. I want to mention is down sucrose designed it makes sense to one. They said one of the most deadly things were were stretch. But you gotta avoid that moisture if you're listening if you're going into the army avoid moisture oyster. That's why we only fight in the Middle East dry there. It's Oh okay. It's a boy pants. That's the way he was a moisture farmer moisture is a so bad would probably didn't WANNA go there. St Moist out space at one part in this game which. I didn't even know you're supposed to I do like fight. You randomly find a air tank near the end of this game near like you will need that. Then you go to the doors to go you can go outside. I'm like what. Why did you just tell me? I don't need this. Yeah now you're telling me to go outside what that part was confusing because it. It says you don't need that. And I was like my brain was split as like a fifty percent was stolen Dylan Star Wars but the other fifty percent was Maine. Okay is this a game thing or it saying like it's like a resident evil thing early on comes across as like this is useless or or is it a movie thing where they say. Don't worry you won't need that but you definitely will it just. It was just a weird line in a game based on a movie or I was like I don't know which do expect it in. It didn't make any any game you come across. It's like when you come across an object in the game it's like Oh this is weird. It's like okay. Does that mean I'm GONNA in a use it or does that just weird writing price. We writing a resume. When you're like this is weird? It means you're going to use it and the other thing about this about this guy in the part where space you Tana fucking aliens or outside the ship. I'm just like why the hell are aliens. Climbing all over outside of the ship didn't make sense refreshing when there's no like really holes in this ship or anything like it didn't make them they can smell the moisture in your got a pistol. I'm just going to the rest of again funds. Aliens don't actually have acid while they're just really really bad acid reflux and they were looking for water to balance it out if you if you were filled with homes aliens and be all of your ass and this game before we go onto listener comments. I don't have many. I don't know if it's a listener comment or question or anything. But what do you have any. I might take those away from some some listener but anyway almost nothing. I posted this in three different groups and people are like. What is this comfortable asking? Who was everyone's favourite marine? The guy you started it with because I didn't switch out anybody inside killed him in the very very end of this game. I don't know John Cameron Yeah the gruff looking guy the title of the title. I love that all the names rely very clearly. They couldn't think of very many names out five. He worked on this thing. Cameron James Cameron. We can't tell them. James Cameron John Cameron I think private Kennedy like yeah but she liked the gothic looking one. She's she's just like Oh. Yeah like whatever anyone said she just be like all right. Let's do that. I don't care about it. Yeah mine was a Amber Fischer is the first I think. She's the first sparrow when you find like the the good looking blond one buster jetson pretty hilarious dialogue throughout Cover too yeah which I was surprised. Because she's not one of the original four you start with yet. She's one of the ones that they showcased on the cover. Well the right. The guy in the left of the cover is one of the one of the guys you start with that Brando. Now Brennan's the young I I don't fucking L. also care what their names were. They were just marine with gun. That didn't die because I kept reloading my favorites definitely Beta the Texas beef. Just like basically the diva of alien. Yeah I liked her and I like butter a lot. The two most different characters. I didn't care about the carriage I enjoy the game I just they were so I like the old guy to God there was one guy you come across as like he was like. I'm Marie I remember reading the end. He was like he joined the army illegally when he was sixteen and he was a marine for thirty three years. It's like pushing fifty story. Isn't there something at the very end of the game. You unlock the though like marine roster. Almost on my game glitch doubt right after I beat it and it went to cry I just went to black screen and that was Paul Iron Sights. Jan Jasper ironsides sites Watson. He's only fifteen but he looks like he's like seventy years old that's like miss. The credits team is the amazing mazing song that plays over the credits. Yeah with talk about you said is I'm like what are you talking to play the hand game. I'm not a joke. At the end of the game you unlock the marine roster and you get to play like the the Nice game you you stab the nicer between your fingers. I saw random screen shot of a hand with the sixty seconds. And you have to tap the screen like the right like Ed lights up ran in between the fingers. And you're supposed to like do the pattern. I guess they're trying to make use of this game. When did we had mentioned even if the DS game it it doesn't really make use the DS street other than to tap at the marine? Which is nice for me because I want to be like I I actually like? Ds Game doesn't use a touchscreen. Because nowadays I'm like I don't want mixed WanNa play the game right. You could use it to turn on and off the late in the the motion ocean tracker on the way. You'd WANNA turn them off. Tracker will school the show on the map to see like with any better videogame. Having to bottom screams a map is all. I need completely happy to have the map down there. Yeah I I own it. Yeah I mean it depends on what the game is like if it's a warrior where game than I'd love to tap the screen and do whatever you're playing four Tiki ship so there's different thing right. It's something like this. No asserted me It's almost the same exactly out as Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Chinatown. That's it. Yeah it's the same way out on the Walla words like the map in the Info and I love that layout in Chinatown wars in this. I enjoyed it but again. It's one of those things where it could have been done a little better. It's like all nothing stood out particularly well on it. It's A. It's like a design like a graphic design problem rather than a game problem. They just need to like make everything Apollo bit more. Yeah I agree I'd give it an eight point five all right. I'm GonNa let's go. I'm going to read our couple apple questions I have. This is actually from the Metro. Vania group that I'm part of 'cause when I posted overblown. Nobody responded to me. I was doing. He went overboard. Have not played this game visit. I like this release it Kinda now not as many who played it as should. Oh really big could've done. I just thinking about Chinatown Lights on. Where's Chinatown wars? Had Parts were like you had to like. They're like many games. Within that will bottom Serena to that what this car you. You've got like hot wire it. Yeah there's a point where you have to defuse a bomb and you have to cut the wires on the bottom screen Donovan. So cool in this like a little mini game. That pops up. Yeah I don't know what he could have done like maybe just restore out of the chest take operation the operation. They can have a little mini hacking game pre buyers out but like the bioshock like is it called like the flowing the rain they can drain. Yeah we'll hacking mini game to get the ship. I think it came up before this two thousand six two thousand nine somewhere around. This sounds that sounds like that would have been really cool and like we kind of broke up the monotony of it just little things could have made this game perfect. We just imagining the name and there has now they could have done not just won't play. bioshock yeah I played recently. It holds up all right. There's definitely a point that game where you WanNa stop lying though. I played all three of the last month or stoker it. I can't play the first one anymore because just after you get sued the The reveal just like this is so fucking boring now it again send us now in that game it has like the worst smog. Like Second Act I've ever played. I would say the peak was when what what's his name the guy who's killing people or making you kill people for him Like he's a yeah you know apart talking about right yeah. It was adamant the and this is name at. Let's Frank Franz that's an atom adults the currency. I'm talking about a different guy. Never mind you're talking about the Derive Ryan. Yeah you have to get the camera or something and take pictures across how. How each Peach Wilkins? Yeah a guy might play that game a little too much but Yeah I mean is. Is there anything else you wanted to say about aliens. Insulation and talk about. Let's do that this appointed because I I enjoyed this. This game is just like I think it deserved an eight but just like. I don't know I think deserved in a in two thousand eleven playing now. It's just so many small small things they could have done to make it better where I go back and forth like I wish I knew what happened behind the scenes. I wish I knew if they were pushed for time or like. If they were just lazy he I don't say they're Lazy Imagining S. I mean because it is a late Nintendo. Ds Game so it should have implemented or learn from yeah implementing more more things into them but who made us the shots games which are fantastic. Those are all really good gearbox airbox Had A hand in this too. So it's it's so many tiny things I could have been better not be saying what the game is bad. The Game Israeli fallen this. It's just small things really small things. That seem obvious. Now it's like Elvis boss might is a little monotonous going a little little. You'll monotonous also going on way too long and needs to be hat like literally half as long if you have all the boss fights licensed game ill flow so much better. Break them up if the boss by a different GONNA make them not fights make the boss. Why it's something you have to do like a puzzle? Zoeller Matt like like the second second one. Yeah I mean that would have been more fun but I would always like the best buy has it unit fighting it. You're trying to accomplish something with it in the room. That's how you make a good alien boss or it's just it is just a presence that you have to avoid. Some Games are better than others. Yeah I want to take over now that I'm back. He's got a couple of quick questions I wanna read or I shouldn't say question couple. ooh quick comment from the Metro Group that I mentioned earlier before I got all the way from Alexander Parker said Oh I like this game. Isn't it by way forward. Yes yes it is yes I I think that's why I bought it. I thought some bosses were BS. They are but it's Rad game. We're tracking down if you've got a DSP quite like the mummy remastered but a bit better at doesn't WanNa play the remastered. But but I do KINDA WANNA try I. It's just as stiffest this one or reason why I bought this because it was way forward and I love matured vinas Venus so I bought it like way back in the day before obviously before. It's in the movies because I haven't seen them until this past week and another question game where he's seen in some of the most popular or movies of all time but like as I was watching them like the franchises so ingrained in pop culture culture. I'm watching them like hey. I know that I know that those lines. Yeah sure is this movie has been copied for somebody else often come out at night. Mostly what is that song by. The Way from Alien Alien was some guy I had commented from a group. I'm in that said that and I'm like what the Hell is this song. Come out at night. I haven't seen the movie like ten year five over five years maybe ten years. It's been a while alien alien alien. Jake bizarre no because Arnold Metro Vania this metro light huge difference. I kind of agree. I don't agree by like comet agree. Yeah it's uh-huh mostly game than it is any other kind of game and the last comment that I do WanNa read is from Alex. Korea said hope it gets into modern learn. Council's very underrated. Game wouldn't mind owning it again. I agree it would be cool. See this I mean you easily could. You don't need to touch screen for a lot of things you could easily court this. I feel yeah. I would want a remake more than port. I think you could remain ally again like just a to fix. All the tiny problems comes in it this remake it and make it a little bit better. They do really well off and before we go to shelter box. Do WanNa say one thing if you're still with us if you if you want us to saw offer some day in play alien colonial marines even if you download the show a ton I get a lot of people download it. There's a good chance we'll play it just because because if that's what we do on this let's make Mike have a heart attack. I don't want to go back to that game ever again I will. I don't want to but that might be a good game for October next year. I look forward to next next October. Allegations Alien Isolation outlast movie. We'll be six four hundred. Just make my shoot himself just messages at some point like Mike was committed last week. Sorry DEPA gases over boys would be worse. Begin like subpoenas in the mail citing emotional drama trauma. Ashley Parker. Go to show for box. I'll okay I 'cause I'm talking to show because I loved Triveni Triveni game. I I enjoy this little game. I enjoyed it when it was it was nation. Short is like three four hours long just just enough to get a little bit in there it. It is a metro light germ. We'll go with that phrase but I I enjoyed it. I'm not a huge alien fan but I liked shooting aliens and I enjoy. They enjoyed the game and I I might never play again but I definitely will recommend it to other people and I will definitely be telling people like hey you should really try nation short you can beat it in a few beat it in a couple a couple of days and you won't add anything to your. You know put you'll do it. It's kind of cool on the shelf. How `Bout you fellow Mike? I can definitely see where going for. Like they. Definitely pay laws to the first two movies and it's cool to sail that stuff all the references. But I just didn't have fun with this like I love Metro Vanya Games and this one one of us so rough. So it's going to go in the box steph. I'll go next 'cause I'm talking now. It works I actually pick the skin. Sorry that you say I wear drink or something to why you pick this game. Oh God I. I don't know why this game I think as I was just trying to think diversely like I was like well. We don't have any three D. S. Games on the list so I'm going to pick a three D. S. Gabe Diaz game. Sorry and I just I don't know this. This one's the one that popped in my head. I had played in like one day and completely forgot about it so yeah but I genuinely remember having good time and and going back to it. I mean it's still just feels the same way like it's a game you can play over the weekend. You don't really need to talk about it afterwards even though we're doing it on a podcast August but Yeah I mean like I like the reviews state you know. It's like eight point five. It's a pretty good game for a DS game. I and I still had fun with it so I guess I'll put it on the shelves confused by Keep Searching Alien Infestation. See screen shots for a year. And I'm just like what's but why they place. I want you to why they why they call it aliens aliens do they. Don't know how to name things like okay. This is aliens. Investigation offset INS and possession. This isn't the first alien. Mrs Is Alien The game the second game of the series called Aliens Alien Three Eight. More aliens is Mrs Game Aliens Infestation of the poor. It should have been alien aliens. Aliens ends with an apostrophe. And then maybe look at all these goddamn lance like Halloween Halloween Halloween two season of the witch and then Halloween again in a Halloween again. It's just like no way. For whatever. Reason is that period of movies from the seventies though like we don't need to title these aliens a two. Oh every everyone will know that first. Blood is a Rambo movie. We call the next one Rambo to her the box. You spider talk since everybody. Oh it I don't know this is a hard one for me this is. This is pretty difficult. I I like this game more than like the Prometheus and Alien Covenant. which like I'll go? I'll watch those AL appreciate parts of them and other parts of like. Why did they do this? It's so far or away from the original like mythology or are they trying to do their own thing or they tried to say something different and this game is like almost in the same vein where I'm like. I appreciate so any aspects of this game so much bit looks great. Sounds great like genuinely fun to play at times when China Vaas fight and I I really did enjoy it. I don't know if I would ever talk about this game again when I appreciated as it deserved point fives. It's it was almost a really really good game. It was almost a really really good metromedia game in two thousand eleven. which would have been you know that would have been something to note Out of in pretty good. It's just so many other things about it that kind of fall flat for me where I like. I get bored like the boss fights. Were just too long. They're overdrawn some some of the like the story wasn't there some of the time most of the time. All the time casing was weird like I said the second half of the game is the end of the game name It's yeah it like effector stayed. Put the game. The version of this game in my head is amazing Susannah. I'm Matt Imagining Planning it. Where the pacing is more like a horror movie? That's more like alien or even if you WanNa make it aliens and make it more of like an action horror. Sure where the first part of the game you're not coming across anything in the aliens are slowly introduced and at the end of the game. They're all over the place. This game can't just throws everything thing at your immediate. The pacing of the actual story is all over the place. It's just so short in the beginning and the end is so long. And then like Sean Davis doesn't get a lot of characterization station as the governor. It's we're not though because the marines all stand out all the marines have their own unique personality and like they all stand out so clearly from each other. And then you have the most generic man on the planet and if they had used that to their advantage and said okay this guy's generic for a reason is and this guy is like he's purposely generic is intentionally generic because that's his role in the company. I would've loved that so it's I think the game's going on my box as much saint joint playing it. It's just. There are so many small things that I notice that small things like a hundred times but there are so many small things that made it. That kept it off my shelf shelf if this game was remade today. If this game the Nintendo's which treatment where like it got like a link's awakening where they remained the game betty in some small things about it. It would be fantastic. Absolutely go my shelf and I'd give it a ten asset as it stands now. It's going on my box but I'm I'm gonNA think about it a lot. I'm going to think about how this could have been an amazing game. You want to say it was all the small things or why you have to and about this game facing really bad. Got New intro. He didn't know the Francis the hands. UH-HUH I think he's not a rabbit.

Transformers more great stories to bring you back

"Hello. And welcome to the covert nerd podcast. Thank you for listening. I appreciate the time that you give me today if you are a transformers fan you will be excited here. What Tim has to say about all things transformers from the comic book to the figures to the cartoon you name, it Tim is passionate about it. Tim works at the rainbow comics store here in Lincoln, and I went down there and recorded with him. So the sound may be a little different. You might hear some noise in the background because we recorded live from the shop. So let's dive right in and nerd it up with Tim about transformers. While I'm here with Tim, the manager at rainbow comics Lincoln, and I just wanted to interview him and talk about transformers because when I met you Tim is kind of funny walked in here. And then you your eyes lit up, and you're you're saying oh transformers that's my favorites in almost like a kid any candy store. So I wanted to talk to you about transformers because I grew up transformers, you grew up with transformers, and it's a fun fun. Nerdy medium just wanted to talk to you about that, Tim. So tell us a little bit about transformers or excuse me, actually before we get going since you are the aficionado of transformers. Yeah. I came up with some trivia questions. I wanted to ask you. So we'll test your knowledge a little bit. So the first one we're going to go travel back in the time machine to the eighties. Okay. So in the eighties cartoons, this gen one in particular in in that cartoon by what means do the deceptive cons transport goods between earth inside. Tron they use the space breath. Yes, there we go. I don't remember that was that something the septic onto built. You ready for this extrap- in children this basically, it's cyber Tony tack. Okay. And the deceptive cons during the million years of war. Whatever deceptive cons in the original g one cartoon to over cyber drawn. Yes, I and so the autobahn were taking refuge on earth looking for energize because cyber Tron was completely out and enter Jonah's their fuel. Yes. But the deceptive cons had control over the terminals like the flight terminals, basically on Sarah, Toronto shockwave was in charge of all that stuff. So anytime anytime the autobahns had to go to cyber Tron for anything. They would have to break into the space bridge, and they would go up to basically through a deceptive con checkpoint. And then there's there's a couple of really good episodes. It's yellow around this. Okay. All right. Well, one for one take for for the win though k the constructed cons now. This is easy one constructed. Cons merge to become what powerful giant robot? Devastator? I think you're going to know that before you have like the two feet. All you do us ater, I was talking to tailor the the other employees here. And she was like, can you can you bring that in? So I can see it. It's really cool. Is that I assume that's an advance level. Yeah. It transformer, and it cost me a little bit of money. It was super good though. I love it is that an original or then wanted to or which it's from. It's a it's it's from Hasbro's combined wars lines came out. I want to say three four years ago. Okay. So it's fairly new on even. Wow. Yeah. About two to three years ago. It's newish each it's got six different Voyager class figures, which are the medium size. So you have legends or the small Voyager rhenium leader of the bigger ones. Okay. And it's got six of the medium ones. We're usually with the combined. There's like the body part is a voyage earlier. And then the the small. Ones are the limb. So this one is literally. Nothing for cool. Now, we're gonna switch to beast wars or at restores his little good on. Okay stripe. Okay. One of the largest beast wars in the series transformed from its beast mode, the gorilla and featured numerous weapons and missiles, what's the name of that. Character is that optimal? Optimus I found out was night slash nights slash. I don't know that one. Yeah. Sorry, guys. Okay. Okay. That's all right. That's all right. Here's one you'll probably know cybertrust has two moons named the Nate. What are the names of the moons? Simon one in Simon too. I have Luna one in lunatic or moon base. Wondering base to loon, I suppose it depends on which intervention. I'm pretty sure there was a Simon. But I might be pulling that from something else. So it's fine. Okay. All right. The hit on that day after that's all right last one. So we're looking at the Michael bay first transformers movie, I saw this question will be from. He put on the website that he would allow fans sue suggest dialogue for the movie. Oh, I was really irritated when that happened. Okay. Did you submit any? Yes, you did. Okay. Well, he did get he put one line in there. Do you? Remember what line from the fans that he put in there said by Optimus? So because I remember a lot of this missions. And I know that they had like the the Staples. The one shell stand one shall fall. They had the. I want to say my bad is what it was when he said my bad. But I don't remember. Well, the one that got from the website was freedom is the right of all the other. That was the other thing he was gonna say it like this like that's such a cop out like the fans picked now there was in the script. He was going to say, well, I'll double down on fact that it actually optimists never said it on any previous iterations. But it was on the back of his toy packaging in the eighties. So some fan probably took it from the back and submitted it and. Yeah. Well, and it's it's a thing that since since g one, and I'll be honest with you a lot of my transformers love comes from more of the IT, w comics. But it's been it's a thing that prime has said regardless of was on screaming or not that's like one of the catchphrases. He's known for in different mediums. Yes. And it's just one of those lines where like everybody knew he was going to say it, and it's just like fans that the screenwriters screener. Pretended. Like, they did so. Yeah. Okay. Cool. Good job, Tim. Thank you. I I think I got a c. Yeah. Hey, it's passing. Earned it real good? That's right. Well, I wanted to touch base with you on the transformers in general. We're going to ask you what got you into transformers originally. And what is it that really caught your eye? Well, I was born in nineteen eighty two which is around the time transformers came to America. Actually, they they existed as different toy lines. Sure and has brought them together. So technically, they came out and eating I think he's eighty to eighty one eighty two I think so and so growing up in the eighties you'd get transformer. So I have a whole bunch that I could now put names to that. I never knew the first Optimus. I got was like the power armor Optimus prime, which is not the one you want when you're a kid. Okay. But it worked out I was happy to have an Optimus prime. I watch a lot of cartoons in the eighties. Okay. So I fell in love with that though. The transformers cartoon is what you I want. My first entry into it. Yeah. Had H S tapes kind of fell in love with it that way. And then I turned into a thing that I remembered like. Talking like masters of the universe. Yes. Over hawks things. Like that those eighty eight cartoons it kind of fell into that category of stuff. I liked when I was a kid, but still had a fondness for it. When Michael Bay's movie came out. I was like, oh, this is cool. There's transformers. It's not exactly what I wanted. But we have transformers in this great. What got me into comics currently or lemme go for gin slip coming into transformers? Currently is the the recently finished ID ws. Okay. And we can get go into that. If you want or when did that start? I w remember I wanna say I wanna say it was about thirteen years. Okay. I have a cheat sheet. So he kinda I to summer you caught your eye when your kid, and then the movie came out, and then the comics came out, and he kind of fell back in love with it again so to speak. I did it was it was kind of a nostalgia owes two thousand five thousand five the year two thousand for your. Yeah. It was nostalgic glasses that brought me back to transformers. And but it was the legitimate quality of storytelling that kept me in. Okay. So the stouter that caught your eye, but the quality that kept you. Absolutely, okay. And so your first transformer was Optimus. Then you know, let's go. That you own. We'll go ahead and say, okay sounds who's who's your favorite transformer. I are none. I have I have a couple of different answers. But my default answer will be ultra Magnus. Okay. Ultra Magnus is the easiest one to go with explain for the listener who may not know ultra Magnus, maybe the two minute. All right. Well, okay. Three minute. Oh, well, there we ultra Magnus more or less the version of ultra Magnus. And I love is from the ID w comics clearly, and he is kind of the internal affairs officer. He's very by the book, he has no sense of humor and people respect him. But they also are just like omens. He's kind of like a Drax in guardians of the galaxy. Yeah. Except he's not like a Ruffy in. He's very like strict by the book, but he doesn't he doesn't abide silliness. Okay. And he he's kind of like the fawns where like Fonzie in happy days couldn't say love or something like that you see wrong. That's what seems wrong. Yeah. Ultra Magnus can't do that with fun. He can't say the word of the F word. Exactly, exactly. The three letter three letter f word we all. No. But ultimately ministers. There's something about him. That's really stuck up. And it's fun to read them and see everybody else's reactions to him, but through my favorite of the transformer series. You see that shell kind of breakdown, and who will try Magnus is. And why he feels like he needs to be the one who can't have fun and why he has to stick to the rules that that allows other people to enjoy the things he's incapable of enjoying and I found it incredibly endearing and absolute love him. And I'm pretty sure I'm past three minutes. Not. So he's the guy that he thinks he has to do the job because nobody else will do it. Would that be accurate? Yeah. Yeah. That's more or less grow. K and when did he was he a gen one gen to do you? Remember, Jen, one is he he was introduced in the scramble city Japanese cartoon our commercials excuse me that kind of introduced hot rod ultra Magnus, but the first time American audiences ever saw him was in the animated movie and young was voiced by unsolved mysteries guy. Oh, I can't think of his name. I've completely lost it. But yeah, the guy who did unsolved mysteries did ultra Magnus sports. I love that movie. Did you go to the movie or did you watch on VHS? Or did you go with it on VHS? I never did. See it in theaters when I was a kid. I did see it earlier last year in theaters. They updated the poster, okay? And the poster was done by an artist named Livio Rahman deli, and he actually has done a lot of transformers comics, and I actually hear rainbow. I have an image. I commissioned from him of over magnetic, and it's right behind the counter, and it s the happy every time I'll get a picture of that wing. Put it in the show. Thank you. The digit cry when Optimus died I mean, he's did. I don't remember. I don't remember. I know it affected me. But I don't think I ever had. I never was of the impression that he was real. Okay. So I kind of had that separation. And all I know is that when I was a kid when the original transformers were gone, I lost interest. Okay. And that's kind of what I find interesting now is my favorite characters ultra Magnus Springer hot rod there. Everybody who was introduced in that movie. Yeah. And so now, I actually kind of look forward to getting to the back half of the movie, and you know, they got killed like chumps to know. That will movie when I saw it when I was a kid as like they're just killing off the old guys, right and latte. All yeah. Yeah. In spite gets away with saying the S word, it's bad. They had to make it more edgy. I think maybe, you know, wasn't it supposed to be more hardcore rated than they owned. They know that up. I can't remember they made exactly what they wanted to make. Okay. And the and the they had conversations when I say, they I mean, the producers that you pay me money. I couldn't tell you. I know Flint dilly was one of the writers. He might have been a producer also. But they said since we're going to make a feature since it's going to be PG because we want to appeal to more people we wanna make a little bit more intense. We're going to go ahead and throw in the S word. We're going to go ahead and allow this to have steaks, but they didn't count on the people like the kids like you. And I kind of grew up in or they say now, the internet is raising kids you, and I kind of grew up in an era where. You wake up on Saturday morning. And you go and watch cartoons cartoons were the guideposts. So yes when Optimus was killed because there is even had a that commercials. That would aero Saturday mornings that showed off the moving like those prime die like, oh, yeah. Nah. He's never. They're never going to kill him. And they killed killed him. I know they replaced him with hot rod who's ever heard of hot rod. Yeah. This guy that just shows up for you as a listener if you don't know where we're talking about. We're talking about the nineteen eighty six eighty seven eighty six transformers movie that they came out with in. Yeah. That whole movie was just a shocker when they killed off a bunch of characters, and it was a springboard for kind of the gen to Jen three. I think not still considered Djilas on and the end of g one was the end of the original cartoon. Okay. But it did introduce the new like eighty six eighty seven toy line, which the only I think the only bought it included from the original line. Was Bumblebee, okay. Who lived in the moving. Yes. An ultra Magnus. Sorry. This going to happen. Ultra Magnus when he was released that toy was a white and re color of optimists. So his yes. So because he had a trailer. Yes. His trailer was different retool that could be turned into a suit of armor that looked made him with more like the cartoon version, but the toil self at the core of the toy was a white cap that that matched Optimus prime. If you put them next to each other. They're the same really it's just ultra Magnus is white with a blue face whereas Optimus prime was red with a dark blue face in silver face. So the mold basically the same identical. They did that in well in in masters universe, as you know, the arms in the body all the cores were almost all identical fraternity just recovered him. So they did the same thing. Yeah. In that case. Anyway, has rose actually kept that tradition up to with the combined wars lines. You're the reason I have so few of them as a lot of them are literally the same toy which is slightly different. Okay. They've actually kind of a Majd that a little bit in the new siege toys. So I have a counter of at work right now, I have the new Optimus prime in the new ultra Magnus and they've gone out of their way to make them look the same. But really the only thing that's the same as the head. But it's really cool. They transformed completely differently. They do their best to try to make them look similar similar to try to get that mold style. Look, and they even incorporated that in some of the some of the other continuities for transformers where they've made ultra Magnusson Austin's prime like brothers and even combined and some fashions not my beloved ID w but their special place finisher. Let's the hardest transformer to transform that. You've run into it varies the new one. I guess the answer. Okay. When I I get them, they're difficult. They're very challenging. And I do use instructions, but those instructions are excuse. Okay. So sometimes I have to go onto YouTube. So other people do I just recently bought the studio series jazz. So it's jazz from the original Michael bay movie and the instructions skip a step a really, and so when when I was transforming him, I was like this is not correct. And I've done everything I could possibly do is asking friends to take a look and see what they had. Okay. And it took better part of a day. I went online had to watch for. They're like, oh, this is in the instructions, but you clip this piece up on his back and then everything pulls laced. But now once all of them, regardless of difficulty level once you do them one or two ties to two three times. Sometimes it takes five times you get to the point where it's just muscle memory shirt. But I do have a thunder cracker but studio series thunder cracker at home that I cannot put back in jet mode. All I can't remember it an-, Anna find his instructions and online all I can find her people putting him in his robe. Mode so for a little bit. Now. Thunder cracker stuck in his in his mode. I'll fix it kind of like a rubik's cube. Almost really is you will you get a really cool robot. You get a really cool vehicle and in the middle. You get a really cool puzzle. So good point just not as something you were talking about Optimus in the cartoon, you always see Optimus transform into his robot form and the trailer. Disappears. Yeah. Where does the trailer? Go where does it trader? There are different answers. It's kind of the same answer for why? In the original cartoon matron changes size. Yes. Right. Exactly. And it has to do with. It's really really non-answers. Yeah. But there's like there's it's thought it was funny. Transform Shirley use. But you've seen Cinderella. The Disney cartoon so. Yeah. No. When the fairy godmother pulls her wand out of nowhere. It's in a pocket dimension there. That's where that's where his trailer goes. That's a really poor answer. I know the answer the the real answer is they just couldn't afford to animate, absolutely everything. I know it goes into some weird pocket dimension same thing with matron matron has the ability to change size is all of a sudden he's the same size of star screen. But when you transform starts getting hold him as a gun. Yeah. And I think on the toy becomes a kind of a battle station because you have some guns in there and for mega truck. No for Optimus. Oh, yeah. For optimization or. It becomes it becomes a battle station or a repair bay and some other really cool, really cool stuff. But yeah, it's they actually with the new WalMart's been doing these g one re releases cat are basically the original molds, they just released fifty bucks an optimist prime, but he doesn't even come with a trailer. Really? Yeah. Which? If you're gonna do a rerelease you probably need to do the trailer. But then also it would end up costing more than you can move more units at work rice. Okay. There you go. Sorry. This ausage is amazing. This this business podcast right now. It's all fine fun. Well, the story are you talking about I d w so you probably have a favorite story arc. I guess tell us a little bit about that. And who I soon as for my DWI favorite story are okay. So about. Let's say about halfway through the run of ID ws thirteen year run. They ended up ending the war between the Audubon. Okay. Which was cool. So the focus of the the focus of the comics for the back half of the ICTY w Ron was postwar cyber Sean. Okay. Just setting the seas can take a minute fill their at at peace love their time here or not. But the the conflict is oh, okay. At that point Optimus prime steps down from being Optimus prime, and he goes back to his prewar identity is Orion Pax because again, he's been the paragon of war and is a symbol of conflict. And he doesn't wanna be that was so he leaves cyber Tron of the matrix of leadership which was established in the original eighties movie. And that's the leader of the autobahns has this thing it got split in half. Oh, and so in order to to symbolize moving forward. He gave one half the Bumblebee whose defacto leader of cyber Tron at the moment and he gave the other half hot. Rod who is now called Rodham aside enlist in the comics, he's not Rodham pry, oh, okay. He's just Rodham. I just say, it's almost prime rib. It's not Rodham. It's fine. Okay. Because optimists time. Okay. Yeah. So it's interesting. But so they each have half of half of the matrix. And then the comic split. So there were two different comics. I'm so sorry. This is such a long. Lead. No, no, go ahead. But so there was there was a transformers book called transformers robots in disguise, and that was about the post war politics on cyber Tron. Not my favorite my favorite was transformers more than meets the eye. You get it. And we're not. I like the old theme song Hossam, but more than meets the eye was Rodham ass- getting a crew together to leave cyber John and go find the knights of cyber Chon. Which are these fabled keepers of the peace? Who will you know, if you can find these old, basically transformers gods? You know, they'll have all the answers will be great. So he gets a crew of about two hundred fifty watts together allow include in his second in command is ultra Magnus. Okay. And so more than meets the eye turned into this grand scifi epoch? And then along the way I'm skipping a whole budget. That's fine. A bunch of junk who is so good. To read it. It's ver- excited. I'm like shaking right now a halfway through the run of more than meets the eye. There's this giant crossover called dark cyber Sean and dark cyber Tron is possibly the greatest. I fi- comic. I've ever read in my low while you find out that shockwave who was in the g one cartoon he had a giant all that would like yellow and he turned into a big purple gun. He is the he's a mad scientist criminal mastermind, and he brings about this prophecy called dark cyber Tron where bad things happen. Let's just let's just put it that way throughout the course of all of this stuff Bumblebee sacrifices himself, excuse me, Bumblebee sacrifices himself to save mega Tron. Still alive the live. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Postwar everything mega still alive, east kind of ruffling feathers. But he's nothing compared to shockwave. Okay. But Bumblebee sacrifices himself or matron bumblebees completely dead and it throws matron off because he's never come into contact with us before. And so he got bumblebees literal corpse at his feet, and he's just can't even process was happening. He reaches down tears off bumblebees autobahn symbol, slaps it on his chest. And he's like hold on prime, and he teams up with Optimus, and they take out shockwave together from this point until the very of spoilers. That's my Oilers, accounting, guys. I said of from you ahead of diamond this point until the very end of the W series, which just ended a couple of months ago matron stayed in stayed in Audubon all the way through and he ended up being co captain. Of Rodham as-as ship. So it's the hierarchy on the ship is Rodham ass- and matron r- equals second in command is ultra Magnus third-in-command is drift. And it's it's like this really crazy thing at one point matron shows up any he looks at ultra Magnus in Hainault tremendous almost become like best friends. It's so it's so nuts, but he sits down with rod in mega Tron. He's like, I know you guys are probably like treating my food and making me want to be like this benevolent guy. Don't stop. I like who. I am. Now, do not don't quit doing what we're doing. I like who I am. And then he leaves and Rodham as-as like re redoing stuff to his tremendous is like, I I've not I've done anything anything. Long long story long mega Tron ends up in some other world like some other dimension were time works differently. He's over there for hundreds of years liberating billions of planets and so by the time he comes back technically, he's redeemed himself. But at the very end of the transformers comics, they did a whole thing called Yuna Kron. I go on about you, not love me Unicom. Yeah. Okay. It up at the very end again, he sitting with automous and ultra Magnus, and he's like, look I'm about to go on trial for everything I've ever done, and I'm either going to be put to death or I'm going to have life in prison and their form of life in prison is having their spark which is basically their heart taken out of their body put into like a little case of put in protective seal in launched into a sun. Well, so it's basically death, but Rodham os's like all right? We're gonna do everything we can I'm gonna talk to all of our legal experts. We're gonna talk to everybody we possibly can to see what we can do to get you a lesser sentence or get out of it and matron stops when he's like now because whatever I get I deserve worse. And you just need to let it happen. And you never find out. You never say leave hanging. They leave it hanging. But it's so perfect. It's so perfect because you see it you've seen megatonne go from exactly what you think anything. Megatrend guy being being like this benevolent freedom fighter who's who standing for his original ideals that started the deceptive con 'cause I place, and it's so satisfying. And so my favorite arc. My favorite story. Is it spans almost one hundred issues, and it's it is the best piggybacking off of that. If you don't mind just as hell, I will have all of it in the store here starting. March. I'll have everything it'd be trade. Yup. Okay. And hardcover sorry. To know sorry to you know, pull that pull that out on, you know, but if you guys are all serious, I'll have it in the store, and even if you don't want to buy it come check it out. So it's so much fun it in it some of the best even if you're not into transformers if you're into Saifi, if you're into comics if you're indigeous something completely different. It's so it's so much fun. It's so incredibly good, I get goosebumps. When I read it like, it makes me so happy when that's what's good about a run like that in my opinion. It's not they had a definitive start and a definitive end. It didn't try to drag it out like some other publishers where we gotta get fifty years out of this care for more will here's what's fun about transformers. There was there was a lot of buzz on the internet people really upset that it was ending because more than meets the eye transfer got relaunched as transformers loss light. So if I mentioned loss light, it's it's more than CIs since all kind of one. But law slight has been one of the best comics like not like hyperbole to the Cy. I read a lot of comics. It's one of the best comics I've read in a while. It was it was hands down my favorite comic for for a long time. And I read good chunk of everything lost light right loss. Transformers lost like. Yeah. More than meets the eye transformed into law slight same writer, all the way through a lot of the same. Art teams all the way through as well, one of the best comics have ever read. I was really bummed out when I found it was going to end. But if you remember what I said a few minutes ago, we've gone so far from what transformers at its core is which is auto bots versus the cons. And once you've gotten so far off brand he you can only go so far so on March thirteenth. I believe it is IT w is doing a brand new transformers number one. It's going to be set as far as I know. It's going to be set on cyber Tron. It's. Erasing everything is going to have characters that I know and I love, but maybe ultra Magnus is time around won't have any connection to the ultra Magnus. I know in love. Oh, but that's not to the detriment of the character. It's it's actually a really exciting time. I got the best transformer story. I've ever read jury and and ended so perfectly and I'm actually super excited to see what this new iterating of it is. And I feel like it's time to do that the cover of number one has Optimus prime as leader. The auto vats mega China's leader septa cons were going back to basics. The new transformers toys that are out the war for cyber Tron, siege toys. Yeah. Those are all like all the characters in this new comic are based off these this toilet. And Netflix announced today this morning when they were recording this that they're going to be doing a war for cyber Chon animated series. Really? And. It's going to be based off of the siege toys that are out which matched the character models or the I w comic. So it's gonna it's it's a really cool time to kind of double down. And and if you've been curious about transformers, or even if you're just like, I don't know, I passive, we know who these things are maybe, you know, checking out the example, I give you lots of options, you you've got the comics in. Now, you going you're going to have an animated series on Netflix. I didn't know that that just announced just announced today. Are they do, you know, how many episodes thirteen probably they haven't. I just they just announced it. Okay. I know it's from the show runner who did the power of the primes trilogy for Michelle Obama. Okay. Because mission of familiar with that. Yeah. They did a whole series of short episodes that turned into this massive tie into the toys. Okay. An ID w had a little bit the magically to do with that stuck. But but this new one it seems like a more concerted effort. I'm not saying the comics are going to match the cartoon, they do they really do. But I do feel like this is a concerted effort to be like if you go to let's say target or you come here and pick up some of our transformers toys, the toys that you get are gonna match. What you see in the cartoon again a match what's in the comic. They're going to you know, they're they're all gonna strike some uniformity. Exactly exactly that super site. No. It's I love the fact that we do have some of these streaming services that are taking some of these properties net flicks. For example, to the she where reboot all I think. The then wasn't there? Thunder cats there with that was on cartoon that card. Okay. Well, still there grabbing some of these old properties in almost out. Do you know speaking of crossovers transformers has done. Several crossovers other properties was your favorite. There's actually one going on right now for mighty w that's the transformers from the eighties cartoon across. Being over with the animated Star Trek. Okay. I think. Specifically. That's what's my favorite. A lot of the of the crossovers are not get my favorite one has was the one shot that was Mars attacks. Oh that that was really fun. They did they did a whole Mars series of ID w did a whole series of Mars attacks one shots. Okay. So they had like Mars attacks. Popeye Mars Texan into turtles Mars text transforming than an X files. Transformers crossover. It wasn't very good. But that's weird. Okay. But the I absolutely enjoyed I super loved the that crossover. There was also a crossover that eighty w did called infestation an infestation. The core story of that was zombies got out and then from there from infestation when zombies got out they went into. There was a transformers to issue thing where the transformers dealt with the Samis getting into their world and GI Joe dealt with zombies and their world. And then there was just. All these other weird things, but it turned out that it was very important to the continuity of the ICTY w transformers that this outbreak happened though had any actually turned and went from being kind of a fun little cash. Grab to something. That was very integral in an involved Cup super. So the transformers could become as ambi-. Yes. That's awesome. I think they had that Sieglinde prime came back on the cartoon had that episode where there was at infection ocher type thing. I don't think it made him his aunt. Well, maybe it was sometime. Yeah. It was definitely a reanimated thing. Yeah. That was they got a lot of flack for that too. Because they brought out prior. And then immediately killed him. Again. How many times optimist been killed us? So many. I think they did a I like I read a few issues of the GI Joe transformers crossover, which one was the I think it was the marvel. I think it was marvel or was it. There was a there was a comic company of I wanna say it was dream leave. It is they did they did a GI Joe transformers crossover that was ingenious, and it was transformers all turned into the Joe's vehicles heaps. Yeah. And then Cobra had the jets and all of that stuff. And is so you had the Cobra and the deceptive cons teaming up with or go and against the Joes in the autobahn, sure. And it was visually stunning. The story was fine. But it was really cool. But yeah, they've done a bunch of. I just thought that was when I first saw it. I think when I was a kid I thought that was kind of a cool idea. Oh, cool concept. You've got snake eyes on top of optimists and then mega Tron with Cobra commander on his shoulder something it's just visually is like, oh, that's a good idea. Actually, just did I want to say two years ago. I d w did a GI Joe transformers crossover that wasn't it. Was kind of an eighties throwback field. Tom skilling. I think just butchered his name put he did that. He's now doing go bot series, right? But it's super fun. It's got this very eighties throwback feel to it. But he did twelve issues, and then he released issue thirteen which was the false like the adaptation of the movie that was based on the comic. It's, but when when you and I are growing up sorry to date you like this us there were you could go to the comic bookstore, the grocery store and buy a comic adaptation of a movie that had come out. Oh, yeah. And it it's so fun to read like, it's it's all it's his whole twelve issues crammed into thirty pages. And it's it's it's disconnected and disjointed doesn't make any sense. Just like it did in the it's so. Man. What a great what a great. How can something be new in the Stahl GIC at the same time. I don't get it. I yeah. Then they're always like these mistakes where they miss Keller stuff that problem because back then they were the comics and even the cartoon were more of an afterthought Hosur. It was we're trying to sell toys, by the way. Let's do a comic book. And by the way, let's do a cartoon in near shell the to meet in. We have no idea what we're doing on fact. Sorry. Go ahead. Bob UTI and ski wrote the transformers comic. It was originally supposed to be a four issue mini talking about the marble omic eighty s Hasbro was like, well, if you're renting the comic, why don't you go ahead and write the character cards? So with the little the little bios on the back of the packaging. We're all written by the guy who's right in the comic. Oh, same thing with GI. Joe at the time the guy who was writing GI, Joe comics was also writing the character bios on the back of toys. I'll those are the cooler you wanna. When you went to the store, I could just we didn't Violante toys when I was kid, maybe your same way or not. But you can just go and stare at those cards on the back of the Joe's and back of the transformers, and they have other awesome. They have a book. That's just the art of transformers toys. Okay. And so it'll have like that that mural that was on the back of every and then like just all of the character designs that all the art museum those because then those cards if I remember correctly, they had you could put this little red cellophane over the back and told their status their stats. That was super fun fun toys like these days. They don't have those anymore is on the car should have something like they don't have it for the newer transformers runs. No. But I'm almost wondering those chea- won re releases at WalMart. My apple they might have. No, I gotta go to WalMart. And vice look what you did. Going to spend more money on the transformer side. What the have the new Star Trek versus or Star Trek transformers crossover. When other we talked about the GI, Joe transformer crossover. Did they do any others was an X men transform across regular member? I think there was at one point the one that sticks out in my mind was the oddest winter it will the worst the Mars attack of it. Well that was off. But that's good. It was so good. I didn't I don't like I'm not the kind of not the kind of person who likes to dwell on the things I don't like shirt. But I'm going to talk about somebody in like, it was transformers new avengers crossover. Oh, okay. In this came out in the middle of the ID w run if you pick up the hardcover collected additions is actually in there, and it's from a writer. I don't know as from an artist. I don't know. But it just was if you have somebody who doesn't normally right transformers seventy doesn't normally draw transformers sometimes things get lost in translation in. They're trying to write in a vendor story, but they're using the transformers in just isn't work. Okay. And a lot of the stuff of the some really cool ideas in ultimately is kind of. So as an ID how did decided curiosity? How did I d w get a marvel property? I need abuse relationship with marvelous. Very interesting. Okay. How right now and I'm so excited side. No. This is good. I want to hear this right now. There's actually a series. There's a series of books from eighty w called marvel action. And they have Spiderman avengers Black Panthers coming. Out. I want to say a couple of others, but these are actually published by w so these are comic books marvel books that are published by not marvel and the whole idea behind them is there continuity free. If you pick up marvel action spy, it's got Peter Parker going to high school with Gwen Stacy and miles Morales who are you know, smiling and spider, man. Yeah. And Gwynne Glen. Yeah. And it has absolutely nothing to do with any version of Spiderman you've seen or read or heard interesting. It's kind of thing in the Spiderman book is written by Delilah Dawson. Okay. Look her up on Instagram, by the way. Delilah. Dawson is great. And she she's a novelist. A lot of Star Wars stuff lot of fantasy stuff. But her husband his favorite characters. All tremendous and on. I know she my wife now. No, no, that's great. But she for for his birthday think last year, she baked in an ultra Magnus cake. And it was so I was like, I basically this is turned into my love or Delilah. Yeah. But actually read some x files comics that we have here in store. She's writing marvel action Spiderman she's written Star Wars novels. She's got some Star Wars comics coming out soon. I I loved Dawson so interesting that marvel with do that, I don't know what's going on. But they also like I w will put out like artist's editions. Okay. So you get like a wall Simonsen floor artists edition book. That's like, you know, two and a half feet tall while super hardcover or just prints in the middle hundred fifty colored price tag. Yeah. I think a lot of that comes down to like eighty w has a pedigree for quality. And I think marvel at some point 'cause they tried to do marvel select for awhile, and it didn't quite work in IT w has like an eighty w limited, and that's actually really cool. And I think marvel seeing some success having idee w put out there art books that now they're like, well, if we have Spiderman or avengers come out for mighty w. We can divorce it from any connection to anything else. We haven't still still make some money still some reach different either verse crowd. There you go there. They I e w has bought the the straight has bought the rights for that property from Hasbro for a certain amount of time for transformers. For that that connection. Explain splaine intellectual property while just how how's borough and ninety w got together because I know it wasn't always that wasn't always that way. We'll. Hasbro had a really bad run a luck. So marvel had dropped because marvel in the eighties GI Joe, and they did transform transformers. And that kind of went by the wayside after a while. And then I has row double down on devil's due publishing. We believe is still around but didn't quite work out with them. They went to dream wave and dream wave collapsed underneath him. And I think I d w and I could be way wrong. If you're for mighty w and you're listening contact me because I have questions the way I understand. It is marvel wasn't interested in DC wasn't interested. But I w. For a while. Because they're just hitting. I wanna see their twentieth anniversary. Okay. Yeah. They're new. They're almost any issue. I mean, boom would probably be newer. But I honestly believe if boom had been around they probably would have scraped up the rights to transform because that feels like they're real they have a lot of those. But I believe I w needed something to put them on the map outside of wanna see thirty days of night might have been their only real success into that point played some Godzilla stuff way back. Yeah. Sure for but they did get the rights, and what's interesting is for a long time in comics comics that were based on existing properties weren't selling. They had kind of a kind of had a stigma attached to that. They did as what what eighty w managed to do through not just transformers, but their GI Joe, compass was changed the stigma that was attached to publishing in existing property yet wasn't necessarily known. You're kinda the second class. Exact. Exactly properties. It's like when you buy a video game based on a movie out. You're like, oh, this is going to be terrible. Yeah. And that's kind of what kind of why I hesitated read for a long time on specifically GI Joe transformers, but ID w win and took the idea of what something like that could be into to certain extent darkhorse was doing that with like alien guested rather? But nobody was reading it except for the people who did read it and they loved it. But it wasn't like a mass appeal of very small demographic. But what I w did was make people care about transformers, and I can say that like from like I said at the very beginning minus Stahl a Broughton back to it. But it was quality storytelling that kept me in Hasbro ended up unloading all of their properties on the O. Would I w had transformers GI Joe JR. And the holograms volume Rome, they had a bunch of stuff, and they actually explained around the time. Transformers lost light became wost light. They explained that GI Joe existed. With the transformers that JEM, and the holograms were a band that you could listen to while you're waiting for Optimus prime to come pick you up, you know, they merged all the everything universes. Everything was huge like all interconnected in the they were GI. Joe would even explain why they had never mentioned transformers before. Because they're like, well, it's a thing. But that was over there and we had to worry about Cobra brat some alien robots. So we let the military side of things that you see in transformers handle that will we're searching for Cobra. Okay, man, then unit. Crohn's showed up and everything went nuts. Yeah. And that's and they used Yuna Krahn to kind of end the continuity for GI Joe which had gotten away from its core transformers which had gotten away from its core. Gem the holograms, which nobody was reading mask which had been interim ask, okay? Mass was actually they were using reverse engineer transformers tech to build there. They're they're Mars. And then when they brought down miles mayhem mask was absorbed into GI Joe. Okay. And it was it made a lot of sense. But it was away from those properties and ending everything. See on bringing it all together jobless bringing bringing in unit crown who had never been mentioned. They would know unit crown in transformers lore is the devil. Yes. In primus is God. Yes. He's sickly as analogues in the transformers lore in the thirteen years of continuity. They would always talk about primus at prices other. They would never ever mentioned administered name. And then I d w did a crossover two years ago called first strike and that that's where they brought in mask. That's where they brought in GI Joe transformers, they all had to work together. And the very very end of it. They were saying something is coming to earth in its name is he turned the page. It says unit Krahn, and it's this dry some planet. Destroying beast. Yes unit. Krahn was the villain from the original eighties mood Orson Welles final performance. It's super cool. So they use that as a catalyst to bring an end to the Hasbro line spoilers. Yuna crown didn't destroy her. Okay. They were successful. But it brought about a way to say look in that we're done. Okay. And and it was so well constructive so well-crafted which again brings me back to my earlier point super excited. Now, the reset button Zeman hit it. We're going to go in where we're going to go now. Yeah, it's literally can do anything. Yeah. Those those guys at ID w I'm sure ninety nine percent of him were fans of the figures in the comics and the cartoon back in the eighties nineties it. These guys are actually doing it's it's a love project for them passion project. They were go. Absolutely. I will say, I don't know the writer, and I don't know the artist or trans. Former number one that comes out in March. And that's not a slight to them. I've looked up they've done nothing. Really? They've done nothing in that. Actually kind of makes me excited. Some of my favorite transformers artists from the past thirteen years are doing variant covers for the new transformers line just to kind of say, you know, to kinda give their blessings Dow's approval toward but I will say I'm I'm very excited. I'm going to give this book, twelve months. Okay. I'm I'm expecting it. Usually with a new book, I'll try to give it three or four issues. I'm going to give this one twelve unless it's absolute garbage garbage right out the gate. Okay. I don't expect that it's going to. But I do expect a certain quality of storytelling based on what I know for mighty w is a publisher based on their their original output. I'm not expecting this to be like a kids comic where we're going to introduce a conflict, and then have it resolved mmediately. I feel like we're. Going to need for five issues to really get to the guts, and then let it exist. So I'm I'm really excited to try it out. I'm very willing to give it room to breathe because like, I don't know the writer. I don't really artist, but I'm excited to get to know them. Well, yeah, I would think if they're giving hitting the reset button like you said it a new writers new artists. It gives them a huge opportunity to kind of take the story in the characters wherever they want. I would hate to be those people. I would not I would not wanna follow the pressure is going to be my gosh, Dr has been raised like I am. I give them nothing, but respect, and I apologize for not. No, I'd love to be able to. Well, it's these guys clearly, but I don't off hand know their names. But you know, if you and I talk next year, I'll be more than happy to tell you definitely feelings on my feelings on what they brought to the table. So it's exciting. And those guys that are doing it like you said, it's a passion project for them. And since it is new. I think again the bar has been raised, but they can do some things that maybe we've never seen before. And maybe or do you think they'll introduce some new characters that they haven't seen or have they have to they would have to. I would think so or at least take like you said ultra Magnus is going to be a little different maybe in the maybe he'll be exactly the same. I don't know. What's interesting is let's say win blade, right? So for people who don't know win blade was a fan created transformer. Okay. Hasbro had a contest I wanna say five or six years ago. Like, what do you want to see you wanna see a jet, and you wanna see the jet and it's an auto body. You wanna see that jet? That's an auto body, and as a female, you wanna see jet that's about that's a female. That's red really want her name to be in the fan voted. They did. So they awesome. And they introduced win blade into the comics. And she is from a different world. That's part of the cyber Trone in galaxy your our federal the federation of planets, but the cyber trans veteran in federation with this brand new. New transformers number one. She's on cyber trot, so already she's different. She looks the same. I mean, it's wind blade. It's win blade interacting with optimists. Wouldn't believe, you know, on cyber Tron during the war, which is something this character and her miniscule time of existing has never been and just as a microcosm for what could becoming I find that incredibly interesting because already it's a character. I love I have affection for because of what I d w did to this brand new character actually making care about her. Now, how do you take what makes win blade wind blade and also fundamentally changed the structure of her existing? I like the fact that they did that fan character. Make because they did that with Motoo master university hack. Absolutely goes folk photon or whatever was unable to character that they create a way back in the eighties. So that's awesome. That they did that on side note, Geoff Johns over at DC. Oh. I was a kid. He created a his own masters of the universe fan character, basically. Okay. DC when they got the right semesters universe. Jeff John's had the opportunity to take this character. He created when he was in elementary school all and he actually wrote a comic and got I want to say almost want to say, Jim Lee, drew it. I could be wrong. But it's a it's digital first comic that this character that he created. He was a little kid as an adult got to make it part of the DC masters of the universe thing. And it's suit. That's awesome. So all this time has been sitting in a box on blaze. He pulls it out. And I actually get to put this in their super it's super fun. I vowed that they actually because at that Motoo creation that didn't eighties. It didn't go anywhere. I think they made one for the kid and that was it. But this one it sounds like made it in the comic book, and they made a figure, right? I don't know. Okay. I'm not a with the universe. X? No, I'm sorry. The transplant this as as a comic. Book she had her own. She actually had the third transformers comic for a while. Okay. And blah, blah, blah, Bumblebee Bumblebee Bumblebee sheet by the end of by the end of Unitron. She was the ruler of cyber Sean. Okay. And you know, she's not from cyber Tron. She's from oh, gosh Kameda, but which is a whole planet filled with lady versions of transformers. Okay. But you know, but she she went from being like she was like a translator for titans, like Metroplex, whatever I go on and on. But she ended up being the elected ruler of cyber Tron. Okay. Is really cool to see her go from a character that didn't exist to being such a Lynch. She's even in the new cyber scar. Tune. Really, okay. Wow. So the popularity of a fan made figure is all over the place. That's interesting has rose going all out they they actually have been doing holes for the new masterpiece line of. Figures. Like who do you wanna see most in Hasbro has gone out of their way to make it at least appear that they're listening to their fans? Do you think that's a shift in Hasbro because you've been obviously, I working with not working but a fan of Hasbro for years. I don't know if it's shift. It's it's a take that. I wish other companies would make okay, I don't know again. I'm not I can't see what Hasbro used to do or didn't do. But I think Hasbro has gone from making just being like a company that makes kids toys shirt to being accompanied that interacts with its fans, and at least gives the appearance of caring and making good on what they're saying. Sure. So if anything else, they have they have an image. That I admire their cashing in on the nostalgia. Which is just fine. Or you got totally. They're doing it. I think with their finger on the pulse of the fans. Yeah. Instead of hey, we're just going to release these. Classic transformers and you're going to buy him. Well, and the there's a new line of there's a new line of figures that are out right now and the fans have not warmed up to them. Okay. At all. And then has pronounced that for twenty nineteen. They're revamping that line. Okay. And it really does feel like they're taking criticism and praise appropriately in an adapted to what the fans are asking for or what the fans are saying, and I could be completely wrong. Maybe Hasbro's like a terrible evil corporation. And I have no idea. I don't I don't want. Somebody to be like look, surely, bro blow blow blow take cookies. I don't know. I don't know that do they have. I don't know because I don't buy them anymore. But do they have more? You know, they've got the I guess for the older guys like us that kind of like the more complicated figures. Do they have more kid friendly? Yeah. I ended up figures actually released the just released a line of these mini Botts called bought bots. Okay. And. Taylor. My coworker. She actually has a whole bunch of them. So you'll get one that looks like a pineapple, but then you like little arms pull down its feet flip down the little face panel. You know, this little dude, and that's definitely marketed towards people like Taylor or a little kids as I was wondering that can the when we were eight years old nine years old is is there figures out there that would Brill them right now. They have the transformer cyber verse. Which is based on a cartoon. I've never seen. Okay. I've I've heard of it. I've never I've never seen it. But those those are definitely geared towards you know, I'd say six to twelve okay. And then they also have like the studio series, which is based on the movies and those are geared a little bit older 'cause they got a lot of moving pieces on. Yeah. There's always the masterpiece line. And that's for people like me or nuts have a ton of disposable income. But as resting. But then there's also like the new war for cyber Tron siege. Which I would say is the main the main transformers line right now. And it's all cyber it's based on the cyber Trone in mode. So in the eighties cartoon, remember transposed star scream transformed into like that triangular thing. Yeah. Putting out a toy of that for the first time while within the next couple of months. Yeah. Wow. That's a real throwback to some obscure. Yeah. No, absolutely. Feature in the in the cartoon going back to what we said earlier about the budgets of like where did prime's trailer every time they did a flashback on cyber Tron with you saw star screaming would look like star screen books now like as a jet. Yeah. But in like a robot mode, but on cyber Tron when they were transform you wouldn't be a jet. He turned into this canonical spaceship. Yeah. Is like a battle star galactica type. Yeah. Looking like our fighters fighters, really weird. But yeah, they actually they're they're bringing out a star screen figure who looks like he thinks star scream should look into exactly that with like in the her tune, it's super fun. Here's a question for you. I remember on the cartoon star scream as always trying to stab megatrend. The back constantly is the comic book somewhat like that man. Oh, man. Going on that that was fun. One of the interesting things early in the w Rutten star scream constantly is is always trained to usurp mega Tron. But at one point megatrend puts his arm on start screaming says, look, you're gonna lead the deceptive cons one day. It's gonna happen. Okay. You need to stop trying to force it and find your potential and reach it. He's like you're going to overthrow me. It's gonna happen. I know what's going to happen. You know, it's going to happen. Maybe need to chill out for just a second. Put all your ducks in a row, and then just do it. Ooh. And then postwar cyber Tron star scream. I was talking about on earlier one of the things from dark cyber Tron is the prophecy of who will lead cyber Tron. Okay. Star scream manipulated a little bit. And for a while. He was the ruler of cyber Sean. Okay. So he finally got it. He did he finally got it. And then one of my very favorite things happened at what do you do if you're? Villain. And you're looking for power. What happens if you get that power? And what do you do with it? And it's really really cool. He gets haunted by the ghost of Bumblebee, which may or may not actually be ghost. He's dealing with trying to tell the truth and actually wanting to be a good leader. But also being star scream, and it's it's these are kind of keep his his character traits from the cartoon in the comic Boyce. Oh, great. I can't even express how that you've mentioned battle star galactica battle Sarka lactic, a the transformers book that wasn't taking place in the Las light is set on cyber Tron, and it was very much like battle star galactica where you have just these people who are splintered. They don't have good identity anymore. They're trying to be like what do we do? Now, you know, by the end abou- Sar, galactica, minor spoilers the humans in the silence have to work together in this. The auto parts in the septa cons have to work together. Also with everybody who wasn't an auto body deceptive Kong's come back to cyber Tron now that it's up and running, and it's just it's a political mess, and it shouldn't work as a comic it shouldn't work as a transforming rebound politics. Exactly any tunes out to be like the most engaging. The most interesting thing. I honestly one of the things I had a buddy of mine. Tell me is that good scifi needs to reflect current trends. Yeah. Mattered not gonna I'm not gonna make any political statements or anything, don't worry. But what transformers manages to do is to give us perspective on what on current issues that we might be facing in how we can approach it from a different angle law slight more mec-. I had brought in the concept of homosexual marriage in a transformers comic honesty robots into skies. Transformers ended up being called Optimus prime dealt with autism. Sound sound wave turns out has the cyber Tony version of autism outing. You you get his head think of how he thinks he still identifies the deceptive con, but he also ends up being Optimus prime's right hand man, though. And what does that mean? And how do we take somebody? We were at war with yesterday. And now we have to work with them. And what does that mean? And how do you how do you handle that? I I'm a I'm a war veteran. Cha, and that's not to brag or anything. But I find something like that inherently interesting because here we are literally fighting with them yesterday in now that's over with we have to kind of put that behind us and find our common ground and your forward, and you don't find something like that in Justice league or avengers. Or if you do it's it's a tiny little piece of assurance transformers is like we're going to double down on it. And we're to make you think in make you love these characters and high loved mega Tron by the time that came to an end mega trial. That's how good the storage adding wedding was it's it's it's so good and sound wave understanding where he's coming from he hears. He he deals with radio waves. Okay. Sound wave can hear. Everybody's thoughts. All the time. Ooh. Okay. The know that he didn't know that other people don't do that. He had no concept for it. And he he doesn't understand emotions. He doesn't know how to process things the way like. Hot rod or Bumblebee, your star scream even wood-processing. So to him he watches people have these emotional reactions. He's like, I don't get it. Yeah. Hear what they're saying. I know why they're acting that way. But I don't I can't put that together. That's not. So I would good analogy of autism. We made it it's it's super and I don't want to. I'm not an expert on all I'm not either. But I don't wanna make statement. But you know, the way I understand autism. Which is limited best has some similarity. There's there's definitely similarities in that. And I it's so it's so good while the fact that if you look at the the history of the transformers they've been fighting a war for millions of years one of the things Optimus prime says when he gives up being optimistic goes to Ryan packs for a little bit. He said for species, that's bent on changing. Don't know how to adapt. Yeah. And it's it's super smart. And that so applicable. I'm sorry to be like, oh, we'll blow blah, blah. If you look at it this way. Now, it's kind of interesting to see like if your your fundamentally a race of people that are supposed to change in daft. But you've been locked in a ward for literal millions of years, and you can't change out of your routine. Sure. And it's it's I think it's a good commentary on on humans as well. Too.

So what happened with him because he describes a really good day says everything went great good conversation. You guys connected planned second date and now your Aa. So what happened? Wow. Date like. Pretty well, I was. Planning to see again and then At the end when we said goodbye I told him to tax me when he got home and you know if you let me know that he got home safe and he said, okay, do the same great though instead. So when he got home instead of like pending tags. Sent me a video and he was. Taking care of themselves in an. Really you're expecting like home banks and instead you. Walk. By and I got what I? Love video of him with himself. I've regiments I'm sorry that I forgot to mention Scotus here on your left that part out Scott ads or you know I'm not I'm not wondering. I was asked a letter.

They were mad that she took a trip to a private island when basically cases arising suffering in flew a private jet. She stay with the same people and you know there's probably no one else on the island because there she's rich and she can.

Limited commentary until then and and then when you say that it triggers I can go back to my. Yes exactly. All right. We gotta talk about with my good friend and my. We gotta talk about the dumpsters that are out back in my building and I want to get them moved. To. Put a stop sign I. Also WanNa get a street signed. With on my street, my name on it. Oh and there's a whole thing with the bars closing tomorrow. I WanNa get the ultimate opinion Brendan Riley up next. For the Alderman. Do. To. All the bartenders out of business. And I know that the problem with the older ladies and gentlemen, all the forty second award is that what it is Alderman. Riley good. Morning. Forty four downtown. So that's why we're talking to you because you're my friend into because you are responsible aldermen for like everywhere that people are trying to go in the loop a good morning. Welcome to let's classic. First Time on this show we've been friends for how long many many decades. Per. Thank you remember Fred if you know, this is a weird space for me FM radio WOW. News Talk Am. Plugging let's say the name. And you know. You're not competing with that that demographic. I don't think our audience even knows what that is with the am, but nonetheless This whole situation starting tomorrow with the governor He's ordering bars and restaurants in Chicago halt indoor service and limit gatherings in the city at twenty five people Of course, the mayor apparently is against this. You represent the ward with with so many restaurants that everybody knows about Chicago be think of I mean every they describe sort of for the people in the burbs or whatever your ward is the loop essentially right? Basically. The Snow Globe at the airport. So all the big skyscrapers but part Navy pier the loops Gold Coast River North near wet loop the heart of downtown. Central Business District and I represent over a thousand bars and restaurants here they employ over fifty thousand people. And our hospitality industry is a big reason why Chicago is on the Global Tour Map i? Mean that's a big part of the reason why people come here and unfortunately the pandemic and are rising numbers. They've been kinda closing in on Chicago the suburbs over the last two weeks and that prompted the governor to make this move You know I, part of my job is standing up for the business community and I can tell you This is a critical situation and without relief for these restaurants and bars a lot of market come back. So what is what's GonNa Happen I? Do you do you believe that? All of these restaurants and bars are going to follow the order I mean because it's a matter of survival. If they you I mean, how do you police all of that? What if they don't what do they just stay open? What what sort of relieved? What can they sue? I mean what what is everyone going to do because ultimately it's bad as it is with twenty five percent capacity inside and outside I know you've done your job to the best of your ability to open up streets and closed streets and sort of move the restaurants out into into the outside but that it's too cold for that really now. Yeah, it is and you know. So to answer your question, there's a couple of different answers I think some people are planning on litigating to see whether or not the state has. To close down this way But then there are others who talked about defying the order I would say that's not a great idea but one thing about this industry that makes it. So special I worked in it for years before I did this job is that they're creative innovators and you know this is a horrendous situation in the hope is that we can get this the numbers back in in order we can reopen a meantime you're gonNA see a lot of those close streets filled up with tents blowing fresh heated air into those times. Actually. Turning our streets in the dining rooms. That's not optimal because he wants to be outside January But that's kind of where we're at and bottomline we do need help. This is money from the feds sport these businesses, the idea of losing our marquee restaurant groups that put us on the map Once they're gone, they're gone So we need to get them some help from Washington DC. In the meantime I'm GonNa do everything I can to get them some more flexibility in breathing room. To keep them alive it's really we are at an inflection point. Now, where the future of that industry is literally on the line. So the governor has made his his statement, he this is what he's doing. Do you have any idea? What is he looking for for this to sort of for him to reverse his decision or or or for things to to begin to go back to the phase where as where we are now? Cure it's it's purely ribbon by the testing data. They're looking at three key metrics looking at the competivity rate, which is important to keep an eye on. It's been rising rather dramatically in the last seven days concern for the public health experts. They're also looking at hospitalizations and they're also looking at ICU capacity. So intensive care unit capacity is very important once you get over a certain point, then you're not able to serve all the other customers that need help. In the intensive care unit. So those three factors and to see those numbers come down over the next fourteen days. If they do come down and folks do a better job of victim thing and making an easy regulations have give these folks a little bit flexibility to operate indoors at a capacity but it is purely being driven by by the data at this point Alderman Riley Forty second award on the French and I know that you are working with what you have to work with. Right I. Mean you're you're taking what with? The governor and the mayor are giving you and you're doing your best. But what do you say to the people? So I'm not this isn't a question is targeted at you. But what do you say the people who say we're GONNA close restaurants down on Friday but then it's Halloween on. Saturday and people are going to have these blowout parties or if people can't go to restaurants then they're just going to do it at home and that the contact tracing doesn't really support necessarily that the restaurants of the 'cause it's more the gatherings. That's right. Look. I think the restaurant is being unfairly picked upon you know. They are not the cause of the problem you know aside from hospitals, the restaurant industry is the most highly regulated public, health industry So these folks they know how to sanitize and keep people safe and fact that all these house parties and large gatherings our driving. Statistics up while the vast majority of the industry folks are playing by the rules doing what they're told, the mass distancing the cleaning, all of that you seen it with Fred they take it very serious and show for other folks you're dragging number of and these guys having to hold the hat for it. I. Think is terrible and you're right the unintended consequence of closing these folks. Down heading into Halloween, weekend is you're going to reinforce big house parties where you don't have a bouncer or a manager or a server to say, Hey, down your mask mascot have some victims will be completely unregulated and that's where I think you're gonNA, see a lot more spread. So I'm just as frustrated as the restaurant industry is it's it's been horrendous to watch as you said. These are calls made by folks with a higher pay grade governor there I'm here to do the best I can with what we're dealt So I'm not done. I spent a good chunk of every day advocating for the industry turn to find new ways to help them give them more capacity the more revenue 'cause the next. Really Brutal especially, restaurants and bars. Yeah. Because a lot of people who listen to maybe they live in the burbs and they don't necessarily frequent the places that we're talking about in your award. But nonetheless, people who listen to us either are affected directly by the fact that can't work more You know that they know these places or they at one point were in the service industry and they realize how critical it is. It's so many jobs I mean how many jobs are represented in in in your word alone? When my word is close to fifty thousand, you know citywide over a hundred thousand. You know these are these are well paying jobs people depend on to pay their rent mortgage. Their kids. It's everyone gets hurt by this. So yeah, people need to be concerned and find ways to support these folks because want their Donavan well. If they close a third will be gone for good. So Support Your Industry Ulta morale and I get together usually on Fridays sometimes Wednesday Thursday Friday and Saturday. We talked about sitting issues and because I want to be on the of city politics and so I guess we'll have to just huddled together. Keep ourselves warm while we outside while we. With masks on and and of course property you know I don't know how we're gonNA social distance and do that. But we'll just get tests ahead of time and then, and then we talk about these issues as we keep ourselves warm outside boss bar. You're by you're the first round bread. King. All mariah. Thank you for all that you're doing and I know that you represent you know one word of so many in everyone's fighting this thing but this affects so many people not just because you hear it and you go up people don't have to go out and eat. Okay. Maybe we'll have to go out and eat but people have to work and there's so many there's represent so many jobs for so many people's less way. So important. Amen Amen Brother. Thank you.

So it and a lot of the jokes seemed kind of the same like you know the play on words or the I don't you know I don't know it Ju- anyway. Moments. Yeah. Yeah. But it was like I wasn't. It wasn't crazy for me to see Borat like shots. Anyway. You can watch there were a couple of good laughs there, but there's a woman in the movie. Who I everyone liked falls in love with. Movie Fundraising Campaign for the Babysitter tasked with looking after Borad's daughter in Sasha. Baron Cohen's comedy sequel has raised more than fifty four thousand dollars after the woman revealed that she thought the film was documentary. Her name is Denise Jones Sixty two year old woman on Oklahoma City. Grandmother was recruited by the team behind to film several scenes with fifteen year old Tatar played by two thousand, four year old actress Maria Makarova who was supposed to be his daughter. So this woman if you watch the movie sh- she winds up being a hero to this girl. Doesn't know that it's a it's a spoof and she wanted to be very positive and inspirational kind of looks after her some nice thing. This movie not realizing the whole thing is a big spoof Chiba lead that been hired look after the girl is of a documentary about child brides and women's rights only learned. The movie was satirical when a friend told her about the trailer in October fans have now flocked to thank her for being the movies moral compass There's a gofundme page for her.

Lots of relationships news. First, Adele shot down rumors that she's dating skept us. So the hello singer took to Instagram to write about her appearance on SNL over the weekend. She said I had the best time. Thank you to the most wonderful cast and crew she said I'm going back to my cave now to be the single cat lady that I am peace out till next year and so. I think that's a matter. I like to Dell before the Dell now. I like all Adele's fun version of adults. Greedy and rumors of a down the rapper surface back in June when the to exchange few thirty messages on instagram now meanwhile remember Brad Pitt was. That model remember that not really surnames Nicole. Was this the one that is married? Yes cocaine. So the models? And anyway she and Brad Pitt over. was never really to begin with is I question. Mike he was like an open relationship like she was married guy open marriage. Sugar baby is that what? I. Mean. But I believe she had she has a kid with that husband. Of this, if I'm dating a woman that Brad Pitt wants to get with. then. It's like, wow. Okay, go. But then I'm like when you're gone, you're with Brad Pitt come back to this, right. Never mind a lot of. meanwhile, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's bitter divorce has hit yet. Another bump in the road after the actors is parted ways with her very high priced attorney. September twenty six. Years. Is it that why are you not willing to let go of your relationship if you're divorced last five years. After five years, you can come to some kind of resolution. They're both rich, not about money the kids are getting older. So they're going to start making their own choices I feel like this is not you don't WanNa let go the other person because as long as you're in this. Complicated divorce. Then you're still can the other person's life lawyers are quitting there must be they must be thinking the same thing like what the heck's going. To work for either. So meanwhile, Koi Kadarshian revealed that she had corona virus. So there's a clip that has been revealed from keeping up with the Kardashians that was released yesterday and Want to hear it.

Voting at the polls ballot sell fees are trending today. Did you know? That it is illegal. To take a ballot selfie. Well. Yeah. A growing phenomenon voters posing with their marked ballots imposing a selfish on social media California Colorado New Hampshire are among more than twenty states where it is legal to take a ballot.

I also read it was a fifty one percent of. This right fifty one percent of eligible voters people who are going to vote have already voted. Yeah and this election. So that's good today. American now, stockpiling goods again as a coronavirus outbreak continues to get worse not the toilet paper toilet paper for while everything anything when I started that first week and was it Marcher Fit March? Was It March? You go to the grocery store and literally anything can was gone no produce. NOPE Roenick fresh pro was wild. So apparently, people already starting to restock and thinking about it getting worse because it is getting worse researchers found that roughly fifty seven percent of shoppers are considering restocking due to growing fears of the potential wave of covid nineteen hygiene products top the shopper stockpile lists again, toilet paper hand sanitizer canned goods, disinfecting wipes, and paper towels. But unlike the first pile forty, five percent of shoppers plan to invest in new items like frozen dinners, pasta, snacks and cleaning products. Alice stressful on the throwback. Acted I'd do the same thing I. Did we learn a lesson? We don't need mass quantities of Portland paper. please. Nine. Yourself. What you got going on. My nose with it so Yeah no I don't. I don't know number two. It's it's incredible thing as a gift I was given. Jealous Number two. Number two anywhere else. The fact that I it has to be a bad situation for me to go anywhere but my house. Here a never, I can't see in ten years I've never, but it's like things are not going well. It's. It's just not good but otherwise I sang with Ping I will try and hold it to use my restaurant. Really don't like public bathroom. I really don't like an airport bathroom really. I. Don't like it. I don't like using public anywhere and. Really and for girls it so much worse because you actually have to touch stuff like we don't really have to touch it. I learned a squat just everywhere point quat to you hover. Hold on. No, I am not. Scale the bathroom malls and the from like. Walk. into. The. Actually. From the ceilings, some ropes that come down. From the ceiling so Yeah that's what she told me but I learned later was a sex swing so I'm like, what's that? I can you know hang myself from the ceiling. So I don't have to touch this. What is for believed? Her I thought the Mirror was for aesthetic to the ceiling. Her makeup laying down. Turns out. Is for something else. Sally. I've been saying this for a Long Time Shelly Even kill anyone on this team I believe shelly that if you had been a part of our tangent podcast where we had evaluated what we believe each other is like in the boot in the boudoir. I I, give you the highest. For. The client wants. Yeah. But. You know what I'm saying it's always. Back really what what you're court nevermind we don't have to go. I don't Wanna I don't know you're sort of nude of it actual like you visit our show but you're new to the level of comfort that we have with one another. I, don't WANNA I don't WanNa push you to reveal too much. About the world is they WANNA know? Yeah, we do. If you're a freak. You WanNa know but. I keep some things close the chest late now. Again made a career by just basically putting my life on the line might might my social life on the line and private life? There are no secrets really. anyway, which no one wants to hang out with me because they realize if you any anything that happens is fair game it's like it's just a it's a non verbal agreement accept it. You know yeah. Yeah I. Mean You hang around me I'm glad I talk about it because we feel how many hours a day like come on. Come on if I left the house it better be worth it. You know if I left the house there better be story. Content Right the NFL's moving forward with plans for a reduced capacity super bowl on February seventh they're planning to hold capacity at twenty percent at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium, which normally holds sixty five thousand fans fans will be in pods six feet apart and masks will be required. Which is fine because I've been to the Super Bowl and it is not a game that is made for the viewer. Intended for the people in the stadium, there's an is a made for TV. timeouts are long the halftime show is only for TV they don't care what you can see everything is no one there. The true fans are only like two sections. The rest of it is sponsors or people who want people whose bucket list it is to go to the Super Bowl. And then the only make like true I was lucky to be like the true fan section the tickets were still outrageous, but there's only like two sections of real fans. It's disappointing. So it's like not loud and I don't know it's sort of weird. It's a weird environment is national OATMEAL Day National Hermit Tei National Cat Day World Stroke Day today as well which I guess we. Think about that and acknowledged that today. So we'll go back said when national cat day to day. Blogs at a thousand bucks a phone next friendship. Talk better than they type these the radio blogs on the fred show status, updates. And like the weather Paulina is very efficient. But you know Jason when he was doing he yesterday including things like the humidity. I. Asked him to common to the weather and he's like it's not in my contract and I was like Oh, my gosh. Believable already. Came on sports also. But he can do it all I'm getting never. Learned. The do points I believe included the do point you know the barometric pressure I mean he's all the things that people WanNa know these things you know is it a high pressure day? A low pressure I mean this is. You Tom Skilling Dallas. He does have the do point would tell us that. I'm a pilot I barely know what to do with the Duke with do point that would change my day they. Tell me if it's GonNa rain maybe regulars look out of the window. Okay. Audio journalists six, fifty, eight, fifty showbiz shelly with a blog. Okay. Oh, did you want to? Decide. I don't know. I don't know who Nicer they really. It was a toss up but okay. You go I'll ride their blog. I am putting this out there because I don't know what kind of advice to give to my friend on this one because I'm really torn. I thought it was a really good question and just something that I was Fred from my advice shelley you go by to maybe you guys can help her out because I feel bad people ask me for advice you rate advice. But you're right I I, know how to live I just don't do it feel like you always say the right things to and that's hard noticing I never say the right things I don't know. Okay. So what's the question? Let's hit the question I can solve this problem. So my friend told me and really it is a friend I thought was really interesting. So she told me that her in this guy that she was saying for like four months they were five months I can't remember maybe it was four but they never were official but. They liked each other whatever at the end he was like kind of being distant almost even just sort of saying without saying of like I don't like really want anything out of this but without saying, you know actually like manning up whatever. So we have been telling her like, oh I, don't know this is like the right person then for you because it seems like maybe you want to be serious with him, I don't know anyway they didn't talk for like maybe a month she said, and then he calls her and gives her like. The I'm sorry like I called the apology tour on they call they come back. Okay. Here's the thing though hear me out usually when they call you at least happens to me I've been guilty of this I will admit it when I call you it's for a purpose either am trying to close us out meaning like and I'll say you know I really hope you find of the makes you happy I hope we could both move on and just like you know not have any hatred towards each other I've done that or had this unto. Me where it's like I, want you back. There's always a purpose behind no one's ever called just to be like I'm sorry that I messed up and and and knowledge everything they must right and like acknowledge what they did to me. I was very honest and my friends agree I tell her I'm like girl it sounds like he's being selfish and he has a sinus conscious and he can't get it off. So he's got an apologize to you, but it's not for you. It's for him to feel better about himself nothing came out of Vidal. Just call to apologize that say it's no I want you back I want to fix and there's no closure of like I just want to go on like you left it so. And now she's all confused and I'm like I mean take it from what it is an apology but I kind of feel like it selfish and call me wrong hit me up on twitter. Let me know if you're I'm wrong but I feel like it. Selfish. Well, I mean for someone to say they're sorry it maybe it is selfish but then You choose to accept that or not accept that but I think it's you do moving forward right? Like if she wants something serious and he comes and goes and it's casual then he's not the guy type. She's willing to accept his casual terms and you know she can do that. Too but I don't think it's up to her I think like the ball's in his court because he said, sorry but he never did anything else with that. I WANNA to make this work or we probably. Buddy, doesn't because he did it in the there's your answer. It should focus on the apology being selfish because some people never get an apology or some people never get that closure they just go away. My reaction was all like technologist apologize. I think that's actually kind of a brave thing because he could have just let it go I feel like it's Ghost. Posting I. Don't do it on purpose I do it because I don't want conflict. We've all done that he called her specifically be like Ham sorry I just wasn't feeling. I don't know exactly what he said, but just if you if. It was and I also think that's actually another conversation like if he was like I just wasn't feeling he never even acknowledged that it was just more like you or how did you say you were there for me and like I wasn't there for you typing. So he felt guilty he has some time to reflect any feel guilty about it. So fine. So maybe that's selfish but alpha. But aren't a lot I mean I don't know I. Guess I don't I wouldn't reflect on that. Maybe I'd reached reflect on the sentiment. Yeah apology. Cool. Move on Scott the allergy a lot of people don't get it. That's very good. I think yeah. A lot of people don't get it I think it's really interesting because I've never heard anyone just call just to calm telling you always something behind it. Maybe that's selfish for him to call and be like let's try this again maybe that. would be more selfish if he's like if the apology came with by the way like let's go out again so I can hit it or whatever like no hidden. Behind it it's just he was just offering the apology. Yeah. He wants to get it off his conscience, but apology I guess and then but then for her she has to decide based on his behavior what the terms are going to be moving forward that's up to her. It's really interesting to be honest I. Just think I've never seen this in my twenty eight years of life. Yeah. I'm telling you always a motive and I'm not saying hit it or quitting but if he's over here like you're you know this great person and that's what he's telling her your this great person, Blah Blah Blah I didn't appreciate you for what you know what this was I. Appreciate You. Then I guess you know you live you'll learn and. I was like. So then what happened after that like nursing I'M No plan but he never closed it either in my opinion closing as to say something like, Hey, you know I hope we both just can move on and be don't know friends or hey like i. hope you find someone that treats you grey I've said that to somebody because I wanted to close it. I think if you're dating someone casually and it's not that you can't catch feelings. Of course, you can catch feelings, but you also have to be responsible for your own emotions in that. Right like if you if you're if it's casual dating and the person's not promising you something and you're Ju, it's just what it is. Then those are the terms that you've accepted. If you want something else and you gotta say something to find or we need to have a conversation, you got to own that I've learned that this year 'cause I've done the casual thing to the person disappears and it's like all that was messed up but I've I've also done the. Disappearing it's like. Well, you know what? I didn't step up and say that I wanted something more I didn't do anything. I just took I just took it for what it was. So that's on Mir that's UNU-. You also gotTa take ownership of how you approach it and I've also done the thing in which is selfish where you've ghost and then you go off to see what else is out there and when you realize that the other thing was better than you apologize to get back in That's dad selfish for him just to call with a no strings attached apology I'll have a problem with that either never heard of my life never experienced. Here instead. Leaning in that way when that's not the intention. Word, we stand the unconditional apologists because he texted to anyone who calls. Yes. That's right. Problem solved.
