It has ever been throughout the duration of the epidemic, both in Oklahoma broadly and in Tulsa specifically. we will have more on that coming up.

He doesn't need a phone. I didn't need a phone right away. I mean I could still check my emails on my laptop and you know that was kind of interesting to me. Is that if you don't have a phone? You're not human anymore or you're not alive you know which is a valid point if somebody's on suicide watch or something like where it's like. Oh my God but you know. Sometimes it's like you know anytime. I didn't have my phone for a couple of days. It was great but it would send people into an immediate like. Oh my God is fucking Dad I was. I was still in touch with people mike. Hey I'm on my email. I'm on social media you can. I can access that through a computer but it was nice not having to like just constant tax and bullshit and you know it's really great and I actually recommend people doing that like you know I would go to Hawaii a lot. I go to Hawaii all the time. I love it and my buddies always other phones and I would leave it back at the hotel and I'm like Juanita's not bring your phone out. Yeah and just skip a day unless you have something like really imperative. Obviously but if you can have that liberty of just just you know not have your phone for a minute and it's really great to be in the water be in the ocean. Just go about your day or just you know. Just take a break you know and get go outside and just not just liver die fucking phone. It's really weird for the younger people listening. And I'm sure you've heard this before. Forgive me but it is surreal to think of a world and I grew up in a world where there were no phones where you didn't have that and it is really bizarre. You do feel like oh I remember. I hate being that guy but it's just really honest. It is pretty surreal to see be giant leap that everything's taken with phones and social media and stuff like that but just your phone. It's crazy. I used to have that sort of older guy issue with convenience culture and I was like fuck posts mates fuck the starbucks app you can literally put your ordering and just walk in its pre made. You don't have to talk to anyone. Uber on these things. Just make it way too convenient so that you don't have to you know kids nowadays. Don't want their license because they're like.

Did you give it up because it was like it was getting in the way of your drinking? No I was I trade control at a young age which is so horrible and honestly anybody out there do not drink and drive. It really is the worst thing you can do. Even if you think you're fine it's just don't roll the dice on that and I never got a Dui but no for me it was just. I'm really environmental. And so I just. I wanted to just for the environment. I live in a neighborhood. Why can walk anywhere? I moved from New York where you walked everywhere right and So I just liked walking and I didn't like driving because driving in La was just so awful and it was such another stress additive. Where after I quit driving. I didn't realize how much more peace of mind I had and you know I don't you know I'll just take an uber or lift and you know it's it's a couple of bucks obviously but in the big picture of car payments and insurance and everything. It took it evens out and again. I'm lucky enough to live in a part of town and see in a city where I can do a lot of walking free exercise. No this is a you know. Yeah I'm not like Uber from my living room to my bathroom or anything where it's like the degree of lazy that'll be the next step is like just. Uber Uber People. I'm not getting getting off.

Use that word for no reason. My wife has half a Margarita and I hate it. I don't like when she drinks half a diet coke but she'll drink half a Margarita Blake but if you drink the rest it will double the effects shelby. Like I've never not finished to me either. Okay so last question before last question is can you? I'm I'm fascinated by people like sandler and whatnot. And what it takes to have the level of workload and and I guess for lack of a better word accomplishment that they have. Can you distill down like anything you witnessed working with him so intimately for so long where you're like all man like that's one of your like that's one of your superpowers Adam. I'm amazed by him at all times. That he though the amount that he juggles and that he's juggled in terms of being such a great family man and overseeing giant production company and everything on from TV shows and you know so many movies in developing so much stuff. I mean He. He's somehow is able to really passionately. Believe in everything too. When we going back to Bucky Larson we had a script. And I remember me and him did like ten rewrites on it and I'd Never Britain movies and and I'd never done anything like that and he's like no no no. Let's let's go back over. Let's go back go but he just was committed to just fine tuning and fine tuning it. You know whatever you think of the end result. We loved it. Yes and what does that look like so like you send him a pass and then he does his notes and we have passed. And then you know he's like okay. Do another pass and immune uncovered another pass and then then. I just sat at his house. And I'm like come over and we were just sit there and we would go over at scene by scene by scene by seeing and calm over and come over and come over it and then you know the thing with him to one thing I'd like to do is we. Would we would right up until the very last second? So when I would produce movies with him you know I would get the script for the day or the they're called sides. Which are the pages at your shooting that day in my trailer and go over them and I would punch those up and bad stuff and all this stuff and you know so it was just constantly? It would never ever stopped. There was never a point where it's like Okay it was from the very second and that you know that includes improvising. I'm throwing things out. And you know he he just a workhorse. He's anybody who thinks like. Oh you guys make it look so easy and fun much to be. Our people are always like oh you guys must be high and drunk the whole time and it's like now it's worked like we go to work and it's you're working the whole time are you. Do you ever have to distinguish a? Let's say you're writing something for Sandler or you're there on the Dan. You're writing all and Improv and whatnot. Do you ever have to like make that decision of like? Oh this is funny to me. But maybe this isn't atoms voice or or ever sweetly really. Yeah that's the thing that was a skill set that I learned and had quickly was being able to write four. Somebody's voice so when I would adamant had me write jokes for him for talk shows when he would do letterman when he do tonight show and stuff like that. I just learned what jokes weren't Adams. Voice what the tone was and what the perspective was. I remember when I was. I was one of the writers on bench. Warmers and I remember David Spade called me and he was like yeah. Just read the script. Scenarious he goes. I. I've never had somebody right in my voice like that like all. These jokes are my exact delivery and tone and everything and I was like yeah. I've watched you for years so I knew exactly what you can deliver on. What what you're cadence. And everything is and he was like Jesus Christ and then worked with David forever. But yeah I I'm writing a TV show now and I'm writing with the to lead for the two lead actors and I just know their voices. I don't know if I can talk about it but You know the people involved and it's the pilot presentation that I'm shooting out of pocket. That's fun out of pocket. Yeah I was tired of pitching and I was like you know what I'm GONNA pay out of pocket for a fifteen minute pilot presentation and I got a director. Amazing Line producer amazing director and To cast members with me. That are fucking awesome. And they're not under contract or anything they they're just doing it because it's you know they like it and they can trust me and Yeah so I'm just so excited to have that freedom liberty but yet to write for. Somebody's voice is so great it sits gifter. It's funny 'cause I was interviewing our boy. Rick glassman fell over and I said something to that effect of like the thing about doing because it grew up on sitcoms and the thing that I grew up or a the thing that was challenging for me when I walked into that steam. Osho within a half hour comedy should never hersal right..
