On March Twentieth Nineteen Ninety Five members of the Japanese doomsday cult. Amish Enrico infiltrated the Tokyo Metro system and released a toxic chemical gas. They had already carried out. A number of lethal terrorist. Attacks Chemical Warfare and bioterrorism were their specialties. But today would be their most successful strike ever. It was rush hour in Tokyo and in five coordinated attacks on three major subway lines. The group killed thirteen people critically injured another fifty and cause vision loss in. Nearly one thousand murder was a form of mercy to the oems. Shinrikyo in death. Their leader Shoko Asahara absorbed your sense into his body and freed you from the material world and whether you perish today not in their tax. It really didn't matter. Armageddon was right around the corner. Hi I'm Vanessa. Richardson and this is colts. Apar- cast original. This is the sixteenth episode in our Daily Series on the strange prophecies made by different cults and their leaders throughout the month. Were taking a daily look at the myriad of apocalyptic predictions to try and uncover. What makes these revelations so appealing? I'm here with my co host. Greg Paulson Hi everyone. Today were discussing Shoko Asahara. He believed that the world would end in a nuclear war instigated by the United States. All of humanity would turn to ash except of course those who followed him in Nineteen eighty-four Asahara started option rico out of his single bedroom apartment in Tokyo and it begins simply enough as classes. On Yoga and meditation over the Next Five Years Uh Sahara grew a small but devoted following then in one thousand nine hundred nine. He applied for official status as a religious organization. Though the application was originally denied it passed after an appeal the group's new status created a sense of legitimacy that was critical to their growth and public perception. Though Sahara's belief system evolved over time it was always an amalgamation of other doctrines. He pulled from forms of Buddhism Yoga Christianity and Hinduism. Even the writings of nostradamus. The Hindu Goddess Shiva was considered one of the group's most important idols ultimately however his rhetoric and teachings were dominated by Christian millennialism. This belief stems from the book of revelation the last book of the New Testament of the Bible that includes the Apocalypse Judgment Day and the second coming of Christ. The book of revelation alludes to a number of prophesied monsters including a seven headed dragon. A serpent and the beast for some reason. Asahara became convinced that the United States was the beast and that they would bring about the apocalypse by starting a nuclear world war three nineteen ninety-two. Asahara publicly declared that he was Christ. The Lamb of God the second coming. He was fully enlightened and able to share his wisdom and powers with his loyal followers. Curing them of illnesses and absolving them of sin inside the organization rituals and practices of the Omb Shinrikyo allegedly included hallucinogenic drugs and shock therapy. Once a member of the cult tried to escape and their brother was allegedly killed in nineteen ninety-three. The group tried to develop deadly strains of anthrax hoping to create an epidemic and instigate their own apocalypse before the United States could. Luckily it didn't work. But the following year the Ocean Rikio were able to develop effective chemical weapons like the nerve agent. Seren and vieques gas they were used in a number of terrorist attacks that killed around ten people and injured hundreds still. None of their attempts were as deadly as the strike on the Tokyo Metro system following that attack in March of nineteen ninety. Five police were able to arrest more than one hundred. Fifty of the group's members and leaders including Sahara. He was later sentenced to death alongside his followers. In the group's headquarters police allegedly found enough chemical weapons to kill more than four million people. The nineteen ninety-seven Armageddon. Asahara predicted may never have happened. But today the option rikio live on under the name. Alaw protected by their status as an official religion. Thanks for listening. We'll be back tomorrow to examine the predictions of another cult.

We are very worried that Brendan's computer will it and that was a very mean prank to play on as soon as we started recording computers. GonNa legitimate it is the most perfectly timed way for computer to be like fuck this. I'm out trucks.

You are a cinema goer who of s Japanese persuasion well you love Japanese films all the same right films all of them Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. That's my shit on loop every day playing Brendan. Do you know anything about this movie probably about the same as Dana. I kinda got a basic idea of the plot and I remember when it came out. It had some buzzed because I think it came out not too long after your name so it's too big emotional anime movies. I got like wildly popular order like even in the states so it's kind of like. Oh Hey how's animates not just tits and monsters which covert Albert that the release of this US release I should say was October twentieth twenty seventeen so within the careers here is your name. Your name came out in in the states in April two thousand seventeen. Okay convenience. Yeah your name in April great great snow different the same so yeah. I know I know just about the plot and I know it's supposed to be like a beautifully animated and Wonderful Score but that's that's about it. I don't know too much and this also I analysts to watch eventually well. Let's let's get that. Pencil ready to cross it off because we're about to watch the UH I'm I'm not crying. You're crying correct. I am not cry one of US money. I'm crying yeah. We'll we'll. We'll talk about it but I haven't really been and saying how I feel about this movie because I don't like it very much. Oh did that on top. That's long I wanted to see I. I was being cagey about it because I knew that you liked it so I wanted to talk about it on here. So we'll wind side me. Make me especially sad. That's fine yeah. Let's go suprise uprise karnavas sweeter the bell yeah. I I should rephrase this I think this is a very a beautifully well made movie. I think the message is yeah so well well. We'll get into it. Okay so movie starts. We have a boy and he's making making plans. He has a calendar that has deadlines on it. want us to quit his job. Another wants to go to the bank. which I mean I mean I know are signs of like wrapping things up so yeah content warning talk of suicide so he's shown on a bridge and he crosses off a day that says final day and he gets up on the bridge and he well I think in his mind he gets up on the bridge but he doesn't actually do that. and he's like distracted by by some kids doing some fireworks and then we get like an opening which is him just hanging out with all of his friends just bunch of kids elementary school kids and the opening leads up to the stay at school. When a new girl is their transfer student she's yet. She's very cute. Shy and the teacher tells her to introduce yourself to the class. She does not do deuce. Oh he taps her on the shoulder. She gets out a notebook and she has notes on it. That says my name is Shoko. If you want to talk to me use this notebook because I can't hear and all the kids in class are pretty like Haw 'cause I guess they've never met a deaf kid before. Noni Noni she she just gets to know some of the girls in the class the pretty nice to her start out her nickname is show John which they say is the same nickname as the boy we saw earlier. His name is Ishida. 'cause last name is show. Ya So he's Shoshana also what a coincidence and then we're pretty much just shown her in several different scenes having a really hard time at school because they're just not accommodating her her disability there's a girl names now who at first. It's very helpful to her. She takes her notebook and she writes stuff down for her during class. there's a moment where they're reading out loud in class. The teacher still has her do it because she can talk like most deaf people too they can talk and because she can't hear herself it's not perfect and and then when Ishida goes he makes fun of her which is Shitty and she's having trouble well making friends were shown her after school with now and like a couple of other girls and now we're leaving by. Shoko and she's just by herself and then he she comes up and she signs to him that she wants to be friends and he she says it to and he calls her weird in throws dirt her face. That's cool move off to a great start off to a good start very likable learned and then the teacher tells everybody that they're gonNA start taking some time out of every morning to learn sign language so everybody can talk to Takushoko easier and now is like why do we have to do that writing easier for me and then there's one girl that gets up up. She's like I WANNA learn it and her name is Sahara and then there's just like more shit of them ridiculing her him and he writes something on the board. I think I missed something because he writes something about how she took Sahara away did Sahara leave the school for some reason or another yeah. I I also missed what they were trying to get at with this. Ah No clue cool chalkboard is what it boils down to yeah. It just comes up later so like and miss something and he erases it as she walks in and he's like Oh. No someone did this rude and then she writes thank you which is sad because he's jerk children awful children awful and then she has hearing aids and they kind of start making fun. They don't start making fun of her for it. They do make fun of her for it. He yells in her ears and and starts taking them out just fucking throwing them and then one day he rip them out of her ears and she starts bleeding like he pulled hold on her ear lobe and he's called the principal's office because assault and as he's leaving the school with his two friends friends she's waiting for him and he's like what are you want and then sorry she holds up her notebook and it says I'm sorry which which made me very sad and she wants to she just wants to be friends so bad and he's just the worst and then he tosses her notebook in the pond and the next day she's not there and the principal is in their class saying like she's not in class today because she's her mom found out. She's getting bullied like you guys are fucking up her hearing aids which are very expensive who done it and the teacher was just like Ishida Ashida you. You're the worst you've openly done it in class in front of me. I know it's you. I know it's you also also shitty teacher. That doesn't give a shit so I'm I've just sort of. Let it happen and get to this point. It's true everyone kind of sucks. Here's these two girls else so she does kind of trying to be like Oh. Well you guys you make fun of her too but it's just you know just that thing of he's the one who got caught. Everyone else is just saying like well yeah but we told you to stop even though they didn't and then school called his mother he gets. Home and she she tells him get ready like we're GONNA go see. Shoko and her mom and she sees they go see her. and his mom gives Shoko smother money to replace the hearing aids and then Shoko is like with her like adjacent to the scene. She's feeding. Some pigeons sounds so easy to kind of sneaks up behind her and tries to be sneaky but the birds fly off. We don't really see them have a conversation BIA after this he starts getting bullied for one reason or another I guess because kids suck and there's one day where he goes into the classroom and see Shoko wiping the tape wiping his desk off and he's like what are you doing and it's evident that she just didn't want him to see whatever someone had wrote. She thinks she's returning the favor for him doing that for her. and then he just starts fighting her physically which was sad and she pushes him down and gets on top of him and he's like like he says you always have this look on your face like just say what you're thinking and she says I'm trying my best and that made me sad and I was semi cried. It was like the first time I teared up yeah and then after that altercation. Shoko transfers and there's time drum woo ishita is at at another school and he is there to find Shogo and he sees her and he's like hey do you remember me is she's just like and runs away which is naturally physically fire the last time they saw each other you're but he's he chases after her and he wants to return a notebook and he like hands the to her and signs. You forgot this and she likes signs to him. Like why do you know sign language and he says I learned it like I just wanted to learn it and then he asks if they can be friends and she cries and then we jumped to the day after he tried to commit suicide he he goes downstairs for breakfast. His mom looks exactly the same from his childhood. she yeah she. Thanks him for the money because he left money on her pillow and then she asks him why he tried to kill himself and he says like. I've been through a lot lately as she was just like I knew like I knew something was wrong. Like why don't you talk to me and she picks up the money she holds a lighter to it and she's like a few. You have to promise me that you're not. GonNa try some shit like like that again or I'M GONNA burn. This money worked so hard for and he's just like okay. I'm very very sorry Ma'am and then she burns it by accident oops so I I want to talk about this real quick. 'cause this also solidifies why I think he such a the piece of shit so they say one point seven million yen which I did. The conversion rate is almost sixteen thousand dollars who yes oh we it's sort of built up as light childhood bullying but my dude cost this deaf family sixteen thousand dollars in damages yes that was it directly the money he cost them and that's what he was paying back or is it just a general yeah because when when they go to when his mom drags him to apologize she gives the money to pay back for all of the multiple hearing aids that he trashed which cost sixteen thousand dollars okay. I knew she gave him the money. I was feels directly like he's paying back exactly how much he calls her or general like Hey. I'm going to kill myself. Here's all the money I mean. I have to make up for. Just everything yeah well. Oh you believe it's a direct correlation to that. Okay who it's a split and the other thing I wanted to just while I'm talking about this number. One a felony damage charges for like destruction of property is anything over five hundred dollars at least in the US so so This kid would have had felony like hate crime charges against him for targeting this death woman in her class but light light bullying is the great kids are shitty and angry and especially the talk about there's shitting though yeah gets a real shitty which is why I don't like it. I don't give a shit about this piece of shit yet. The reason he started getting bullying they say later on he has contact issues which yeah I I get that but also a lot of the bullying we see in him. Being bullied. MONTAGES are him being bullied for being such an asshole to this person. He drove out of school. A lot of the graffiti and stuff are like Jerky fucking asshole so that is some of the bullying stuff he gets to you and we'll feed into more stuff. I don't like later on but I just wanted to establish that well. It's still relevant great. Okay Sorry I have feelings about this movie clue so he's going back to school. he explains that that him taking that notebook to. Shoko was supposed to be like a last act of courage. He reveals that like once they graduated waited from elementary school and moved on to middle school his friends kind of dumped him and told everybody not to talk to him because he's crazy and we have this visual of him. His in his is just like XS being over. Everyone's faces 'cause he just doesn't WANNA look. He just ignores them all. He doesn't WanNa look at them. You can't look at them. He doesn't want to deal with it and he also while sitting in class has this moment of like making things up that people are saying about him saying that he's crazy. Roese and asking what he's alive and stuff and he's eating lunch alone and he's like wondering when he can see Shoko again 'cause he really wants to he goes home and his mom apologizes for accidentally burning the money and then. She says that she wouldn't have wanted to use that money anyway because he raised it specifically to kill himself self which would have made her feel gross the next day he's parking bike at school and he's walking toward the school when he sees this kid with really fluffy hair very steven universe. Ask I was a little little fro and it has a green tint to it so it's slight Steven Universe decorative so someone comes up to him and it's like let me use your bike. I forgot something at home and he's like Nah. This is my bike you cannot use it and they kind of start fighting each other and he's calling for help and then issued goes over and he says do you want to use my bike and the guy's like yeah so he steals his bike national and he has to walk home and he's thinking. I have to find like a natural away to see. Shoko again. I can't just go see her. It will be weird so he finds God divine intervention God I was GonNa say God intervention. That's not sees Jesus POPs hello. There's a coupon for some bread and he's like Oh. She likes is to feed the fish bread. Bring her some bread so he gets to school. He gets to her school will and there's a kid standing at the door and very is Scott here. He just left because he's like see. Shoko and the the kid is just like she's not here and he's like I can see her. She's over there and they're just like she and they closed the door. She's not here and he's walking home and fluffy hair boy. Is there with his bike. He's like I found your bug. I looked all over for I found it abandoned in a rice field here. You go friend. My name is Nagasuka Suka. I think nice to meet and his ex falls off of his face 'cause now he's a friend because he did this league for you. Shida and and now he's comfortable with him. She's a friend. Also I look at my notes and yes that is correct. Knock Asuka Great. They go to the movies together. They're just like having a chill time. They get food and she does like what does it mean to be friends. Like what are the qualifications applications of having a friends and Nagasuka a very funny guy he liked grabs a French fries ketchup so it looks like a cigarette and he's just like my dude. There are no qualifications for being friends friendship transcends words and logic my man and he starts to see so so which I also love this. This is the biggest I've ever seen and I love him. Yeah he's great finally character. I lack back you don't even like Shoko easily with okay so issue to try to go see. Shoko again but the same will kid is blocking the way and he's like this kid that we at this point assume as a boy says I'm going out with Shoko Andy. She does just accepts this. He's just like all right that makes makes sense sure and then the kid says if you're here like to be selfish and get some kind of self satisfaction out of this you should leave yeah yes and and my is the movie ended right there and then soukous there and he grabs the kid and he's like hey fucker. My buddy wants to see this girl. Let let's see the girl so they're causing a scene and then all of the people that are in the classroom like come over to watch and she'd makes eye contact with. Shoko and he's like you and he eats himself out of there and Shoko follows him and they're having signed conversation down by the river where she she feeds the fish and the kid that is supposedly going out with. Shoko has a camera so he's like zoomed in on their hands and hand is translating the conversation for Nagasuka and a Ishida says like I wasn't sure if it was okay for me to come see you but I wanna be your friend as she says I want to be your friend and then he gives her the bread and they feed the fish together and she pulls out the notebook he gave her and like opens it to read it and he's like no never mind I don't want you to read it and they like struggle over it and it falls in the water and then she jumps Simpson the water to get it and then he jumps into and they get out he apologizes for that and gives it back to her and then they part ways for the day so yet all all pick up from here trinity half the next day at school it turns out the kid that was so protective was taking pictures and posted all over. Social Media show Ya jumping into the river and he gets suspended for like improper behavior or whatever he's not supposed to jump in that river or something irrelevant. Yeah Basic Leo's like against student conduct which is being an idiot all wet and stuff so he's suspended his mom tells them to go pick up his sister at school and when he does he's here's someone in the park like play tunnel thing and he goes and it's it's the kid it's the kid those taking pictures we learn another name is Zorro and they there's still mad about stuff stuff and show. Ya is our sorry. I should say zero is still mad at show. Ya but show you doesn't really care that the picture got him suspended so rather than men sleeping in the slide decide show you decides to take take them home for a nice dinner so that night Yuzu is staying over and goes out in the rain show you a follows gives them shoes so they are out in the rain and it turns out that zero had a fight with Shoko and that's why they were gone and questions show you as motivations for trying to reconnect the Shoko and show you like hey. I know I'm a bad person. I know I don't deserve anything but I'm trying here. Try and then suddenly we learned that use zero is actually Shoko sister and not her boyfriend at all which number one I before they established when we first get them in the classroom. They just say Shoko is it's my girlfriend and I was like yes. She is gay perfect great. No because they had an established us are as the boyfriend yet they just said. SHOKA SHOKA was my girlfriend. Es finally that's what I thought that's what I do but also earlier Maria the younger child Donald House was like oh by mom casey their mom her mom go off to work and I was like Oh but show us mom's still here. I was like Oh to mops ops yeah and find Maria. Maria actually show you the niece assist so it's like okay yeah. Fuck me up that relation that whole family dynamic. I was so confused because we don't see the movie so it just Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. We got the big reveal that these are the sister they get to the house and Shoko Zeros mom comes out wow and recognizes show ya as the boy who was the worst and of course slaps him in the face fair yeah so they go well he leaves and then in the mom go inside and the MOMS like hey they don't hang out with that piece of Shit and use our or zero fuck is I misheard it as us us. Abu My doing back and forth so I'm just trying to translate my handwriting and real-time line if everyone nicknames yet all gay sister is like well. I can decide who I want to hang out with so I don't care. I'm not gonNA tell Shoko to not hang out with anyone. so the next day show you introduces knock Asuka to Shoko and zoo and tries to get shockers phone number but says it's so vaguely that Shoko is like oh I actually want the the phone number of one of our elementary school friends who was not the meanest person in elementary school but someone who's still all the bully. I don't think so they learn that she goes to a different school horace phone number. I'll think Sahara ever believed her with with the time jump I lost track of who was who elementary school so. I guess yeah sorry Yeah Asahara Person. She's the one that I wanted to learn sign language right yeah yeah I narrow after being told so so yeah they go to visit her. She is going to school in existence city so Shoko and show Ya go and travel and they find her and learned that she learn sign language and is super friendly the and immediately jumps back into being friends and apologizes for what happened and all the bullshit the happened in elementary school aw so while they're catching up show you feels super guilty and all that and walks away and passes NOCA- Ohka who was the extra M- mean girl in elementary school. I'm going to cry and her name. Aim is but they call her now Turkey right now. Her name is bitch. I just fucking. She doesn't deserve I ate her. She doesn't deserve name. No early. Pay attention to anyone's name in the elementary school. I'm just learning all of their like adult what adult Gotcha but now but now yeah however Shoko wants to earn I forget who wants them to reconnect but show your shoka wants now to be at least reconnected somewhat they visit her at the cat cafe that she works at she sees them and hides so they end up not connecting and show Ya. It's like oh I wouldn't want to hang out with me either self-loathing so we see Shoko at the doctor and she's getting news news and show you gives us our cat to give her that like a little purse that he he picked up at the cat cafe and she's crying in a room but I I believe the news was that she got like a new he or she lost hearing in one ear but got like a new hearing aid in the other and is able to verbally communicate a little bit. This was also left as subtext so I don't know the exact change that happens here. I just thought it was like is that she's he's just. GonNa like fully lose her hearing eventually like that's just how I read it probably yeah because I was confused because she is being more verbal than previously Asli but they do know that one hearing aid has gone so I assumed she completely lost hearing in one ear and I don't know maybe as trying to verbally communicate. This is all subtexts yeah yeah but yeah so later on now actually meets up with ler show yeah and sees. Shoko across the street right buying something is like Oh that death idiot. We're still making fun of her right to hate her and so yet show. Ya is now like oh no yeah so. Shoko oh comes over to meet them and now jumps right back into bullying her and takes her hearing aid and show. Ya is like hey. I'm changed now and now is like Oh. She's your girlfriend. You only care because she's your girlfriend. this is when she started out as mean girl in my notes and this is when she wanted to just Schertel bitch yeah you would think as you get older and mature as a person you would think wow. I really shouldn't have made fun of the girl in my class. No no she's Classen her again. She was like old habits old. So the next day after the bullying they go to see the car show who is wearing her hair up for the first time and you can like exterior see the hearing aid and she's speaking show you is thrown off by this and Asif she consigned in which me immediately makes herself conscious because basically what he's saying is your voices weird because your death and she she gives him a gift that she got the previous day and in her voice. She says I like you but he cannot make out the words that she's trying to say so he thinks she's talking about the Moon and so he defends her and she runs away and is all embarrassed because she confessed her feelings and he didn't understand stand her so the next day in class he goes up to one of the other people from elementary school. He hasn't talked to basically since since then and is like hey so. Why do girls change their hair. There has to be a single answer right one reason well. He over hears talking before he talks to them. She walks in and she they hear all the other girls like oh you change your hair. You got got a DI. Di like somebody and throwing these suggestions of why she might have changed your hair and that's what makes him think like. Oh is that why Shoko changed her hair and that's enough for him to to get up and ask him but she is like now. There's many reasons. It's not always about a guy but also this other classmate. wants to hang out with you so they they less uh-huh so they gather up. They're all they're all being chums actually trying to have high school friendships so it's basically every character we've mentioned so far. goes to amusement park. It's Shoko Shoko Universe Steven Universe and bitch for some reason who because I don't think it was. I think it was trying to like because it's like a bunch of light. The grade school kids again. Oh everyone should be either. I don't know it could it could have been the blonde girl maybe yeah yeah but they go on a roller coaster word. We get some enlightening like hey don't judge things until the end heavy-handedness and we see deep show. Ya is actually having the realization that he's having fun for the first time in is still feeling guilty like I don't deserve to to have fun so he and the bitch girl decided to go get food they go to the concession stand and the person some working at is one of the old friends that turned on show yeah and he's now feeling all weird again end because he remembers about what a Dick he was and bitch girl is like I thought you would want to reconnect. We're doing uh-huh doing you. A favor each be happy and basically just goes into the life was so much simpler before death death row showed up and ruined everything because you got weird appeared and every everyone feels weird. It's all deaf. Girls Fault man fuck this bitch so hard hard yeah and she goes and he's like hey. I really wanted to go on this ferris wheel. you and me alone go on this ferris. Wheel sounds like a great idea especially after areas saying how much better better things would be if you were never on it. Let's go on this very tall object. zero is like. Hey hey a shock. Oh take my camera and maybe take some pictures and they leave and then after the amusement park they easy through and show you meet up and US Zero is like hey I snuck. I was basically just rolling the camera the entire time. You really need to see what happened. and we see that on the ferris wheel bitch girl was like hey you deaf idiot. Why do you have to ruin everything. Everything's your fault and then just like attacks her and that's basically where where mm-hmm we get to the third the third act so yeah. I'm just GONNA call her sister. Because I'm going to butcher the name of pronounce it shows show you the the video and we basically says all he wants is for Shoko to like herself and he sees a lot of self loathing in her so I just I just I just want her to enter all the Shit I and when he's at school show you tells his new friends. He's like the red. I just caught him. Ron But girl the other all time such Colorado. It's easier another name. He tells us about the video and he's kind of like wow what a bitch like who bullies the death is the only a douchebag would really be fully to defecate dies inside and then we get it it gets here at team of for this person hold too and when he gets back into the classroom her mining the blondes a friend who was like in school or wherever search stuck in a show you show you confronting him about the stuff after she finds eh the video as kind of like you were bullied to and he's like no. I was just like all of those bullets like no I wasn't but you laugh along defender you didn't stop it and and then they just Kinda got into the tussle and she starts freaking out like yelling and kind of draws attention saying like the reason show change schools is because you show you or the bully that really drew the school and he's like. I'm going to BARF and runs out because he's getting a tax sort of thing again. You've runs out wholeness now shut and and as he goes out he just leave school and goes on the self reflection thing and any ends up at the usual spot on the bridge NEC Shoko and her sister there and while he's there they're talking about an everyone else shows. Steven Universe me to bitch smashes everyone everyone's here everyone should be and undermining comes up to show you an apologizes saying like sorry.

I'm worried about you like you're really wrapped up in Showbiz life like don't forget to like liver yourself and her sister's like you're doing the same thing with your learning a sign language. It's like I'm doing that for me and her sisters like I'm doing this for me like it's the same thing your kid. I got two good grandkids like you had kids and then we see she has like the circus sister has dream about going like this dead pigeon or something at freaks out and Wakes Wasabi. We see her in bed with grandma trying to come back to sleep and then it cuts to show you out dating bread. Kinda talking up. Hey she'll go how you doing planning to meter began acting like nothing happened yesterday after he just snapped at everybody and at the British. She sees her her sister in a school uniform crying further down under the bridge. He's like oh I should probably say something never mind kind of turns away alien and see at she sees him up at the bridge. CK Show you what up shit sober and school uniform trying to play trying to play it off like a normal day and he's like yeah. I saw you crying earlier. Words going on you. Don't WANNA be involved.

Hoard fucking cut to grandma's funeral dizzy that happening and we see that she's in her school uniform because I'm guessing it's the most formal clothing she has so. That's why she's wearing it in the summer. It's just like oh boy. That's that's a rough game. Show you Texas show okay. Oh saying like hey you wanna go out tomorrow kind of get your mind off things and they go off. Co Train and they do to museum and they spend all day together and you get flashbacks whether kids moments like this and we see him going uphill trip and ship it goes to help him and she politized. He's the one that made her unhappy so so now he'll always be unhappy when she's around her kirk kind of saying like because you believe me when we were kids and now you're just trying to redeem yourself so now you'll be unhappy when you're around me and he's signals not truly come on. I WanNa be around you and then we did a shot of all fizz like newer friends turning their backs on him like in a kind of a date or kind interim. This was sad. This reminded me of the end a fan of the opera when he singing masquerade to himself off. I don't know if either of you have seen the I haven't heard it since I was a wee baby. Oh it's sorry some says he's doing the same thing. He's he's definitely going through another depressive episode well. There's no there's no pretending like we can just go back to the way things were be happy so down to double down and he just hangs out with. Shoko and her sister a bunch and he's like clearly forcing himself to be happy and upbeat. I feel any guilt on happy when we hang out. This is healthy healthy lifestyle L. physically and he's like Oh hey tomorrow we do. The singing like we already got plans. He's like okay. Maybe I can come along like yeah. You can come along and then which cut to them in their apartment and showcase apartment and they're making a cake. It's the month birthday so they WANNA make cake show so he was helping out. He's a yeah I'm GONNA trump bounce for your mom gets back because the last time she saw me she made me upside the face so leave your mind because of the multi thousands of dollars that I call stir.

Let's go get some snacks. Come on mom and he'll leave the two lovebirds alone yeah. Thanks for everybody out and started kind of his birthday and sugar. It's like she was happy. She signing and they're talking about like Oh. It was her mom's birthday. When's your birthday. Oh Man. I can't believe I missed it like just miss it a few weeks back next year. We got a plant something he's like. Oh God I'm planning next year stuff like we're a couple kind of gets nervous nervous and all of a sudden. Shuki like get something well. I gotta go. I gotta go to study but it's the sum ISSUR too key. I got a Gal now granted 'cause. It's all signed subtitles so that's just like Kinda. Don't know sidelining that you kind of what she's saying from him saying okay. I guess I'll I'll see you later and she leaves the festival to study and her sister and her mom comeback wing what happened the other. She just left us. Oh Hey do. I left my camera at home. Can you run back to our apartment and get it for me. Get into the fireworks instead Amigo back to get it yeah okay weird so it goes back to their apartment. It works just went and he goes in. He knocks and everything he's polite but he goes camera. I should make sure it's charged and as he turns he sees Shoko out on the balcony uh-huh. I wonder what she's doing out. There thought she was supposed to be studying and he sees her start climbing up on the railing of the balcony. Oh I know what's happening. He's been there there and as he do Surani does the Shoko trips a table chair and he falls over and it gets back up and we see we see the current flagging over the window and we you see her standing on the railing and then the curtain flaps over the camera pulls away she's gone yet but then we get cut him like leaving like diving over the railing hanging on and and he grabbed her by the hand at the last minute. He's still holding her and he's like trying to pull it back up like come on you. GotTa help. This is what we're doing is praying to God bodies like God if you help me out with this like I won't run away anymore. I'll start listening to other people's feelings and stuff l. SORTA looking people in the is like a turn my life around and all this stuff and he's even realize it's like I never even apologized for stuff. I did as a kid like I don't think I ever apologize for scarring here. Here's from ripping. The hearing aids out. All this shit is come on guy. You GotTa help me out L. and that you see Shuker reached back up. Its or pulling yourself up onto the balcony and ready. She's getting back over the railing. Show you like falls trips over at he falls off the railing instead so then we got shot of him falling any falls until the river we've seen earlier we see kind of blood pouring out a bit and it's just a hard cutoff sirens and lights so yeah show you fell off the balcony instead. He got his wish familiar Ed. This fad cuts to ship it. A sister like I guess in a hospital waiting room. I think this is super clear and show his mom shows up. Hi Mrs show US bomb just wanted to ask how show he was doing and all of a sudden. It's go. He's chose. Mosley seems pretty upbeat considering her sons in hospital for falling off how many stories and now he's buried. He's fine now. They took him out of the ICU in. He's in Gallatin room now like he's doing good. He's in a coma own. Yeah we find out she's really upbeat and I ah you will live just not right now right now and at the moment does mom like walks in and associates sees showing his mom she it just drives down and like based forgiveness at Super Hard and crying like I'm so sorry it's my fault. It shook his follow. It should and should show his Mobley pornography non. Stop the stopped note. Stop for for dentists isn't. It's no one's fault like it. Just it happened. He's fine. Let's move on sort of and her sisters cry I too and then we cut to we see shook an outside and just what's happening. She's getting bullied a fucking game by bitch. Who's just Yes yes. You just saw physically hitting her meeting her your reason he would never be in the situation hitting her while she's hitting her. You're shook his mom comes out and it's just bit slaps the girl across the face and then they start fighting and like I know sure because moms trying your best. She seems it hit a lot of people. I don't want knowledge that I think as soon as we are introduced to her mom. She just doesn't seem like a great person. 'cause I don't know it's not it's never made completely clear but in my mind the fact that she was like tell. Shoko this to to use you to in my mind again. It's like that. She never bothered to learn sign language so like she doesn't know how to talk to Shoko. You know what I mean so like I was just like Oh. She's a bad mom got it. I mean I think I'm not mad at her. I just think I don't see nearly enough of her to get a real idea Sushi. She's in maybe like scenes in this whole movie because we only ever see her children so excuse me beating children who have beat her child. Yeah I mean when she slept now across the face like it's what she deserves said that out loud. It's everyone in this deserves to. I'd show code needs a nothing. I have nothing against her beating her daughter. Ron Ron Anyway as she is mom comes out pulls them apart like let the doing knock it off your bitching about my son and trying to see him. AM and don't be don't be fine around my thug off and she goes to the Shoko unlike how sugar crying and apologizing profusely got Jesus what I just say. It's not apologise about my son. He's GonNa be fine and then back in their apartment. You see her sister taken out some of the photos she had like stick picture like some dead frogs or like roaches. I think maybe if there's less death brown. Sugar won't try to kill herself as his Zuroff seen. That's made me cry right. That's something that made me cry is another day. She'll try to visit show you and run. Stephen and they find out bish has been in the room the whole time and blocking. Shoko from going into visit so Shoko goes out and like talks. Stephen a bit more finding a he's a he's my true friend. I can't lose him. He's the only guy it's just like. You're a pure boy and he's like I know you'll wake up like don't worry and shocking wants to try and she says she wants to try and rebuild what was destroyed so she goes to all of their friends that like snap that and trying to rebuild all the relationships and stuff and try and bring everyone back together and then we see her waiting outside the hospital for bitch to come out and she's waiting there like multiple days in a row wral. Try to mend the fence with her but she's a bitch she won't she's walking past and then we see Shoko has a dream about Chile's suicide. I'm lost here. The stream was confusing for me. He's getting a lot okay yeah. I wasn't super clear on that. that makes more sense she wakes up search running down and she wrote the bridge where they usually meet up and she's just crying crying like he's not here and it's right when she did her what she's bringing out crying. Show your wakes up in the hospital. It just like Oh what the Fuck Oh God why live in hospital fuck this and he gets out of the bed and to serve this. This hospital's got shit as security 'cause I just won't go from Tacoma and just walked right out the where is his nurse Yeah. There should be some sort of alarm or security guard of some sort hello so he walks in the room service. He walks up to the proud of you so you know she's not here but it's because she's off to the side like crying on the Loyd a cubby area and when he gets close enough he sees her. He breaks down and cries and they have this. This moment startled is accused really here. He's awakening maybe here and conversations or didn't meet to her and he apologized for all stuff he did as as a kid and she's saying that no my phone. I was being selfish and like everyone's trying to be because of me but it's like. I'm not being better for them and and it's just this real like I'm not doing justice. I'm going to try like I am but as a conversation between the two of them saying like basically trying to say like they both heat themselves and they're like well. We got work on this because so far. We both tried to kill ourselves. Shoko doesn't deserve that at all. Nothing is your fault none. None of it's her. Oh yeah all of your friends. Everyone says I want he wants. Shoko to teach him how to live any kind of gets like for the Oh God. That's very openly embarrassing. You guys just almost idly. It's okay to be open and we see show you asleep in the car car and his mom's driving back from the hospital when he gets there. Maria watering plants offside. She's like Oh show you died and hugs sport of this movie we as well as they believe actually ducks back. She was in your bed hospital room. Every day like waiting for you to wake wake up and say oh I should talk or still bitch and she goes a little heart to heart. Anticipate says like I'm never going to like show cow. I'm always GonNa like heater her 'cause she's deaf have and there's a little rain and she says tears enough she says. What is your believe you in high school. He's the one applaud you out of the river like when he fell into Donna told you that this kind of trying to like even still repair his friendship from back that goes to see he goes back home. NC surface MOMS that are getting Erica and she's like hey show you sorry again about the whole balcony thing it's fine. Stop and let me see ads popping like I'm GonNa go pick up Maria from the playground. What what who were severely nice. Can we introduce a new character five minutes before before this movie ends Cool Yeah Okay we see him in the montage in the beginning and now and yeah so I I think they say he's like a soldier. He was deployed or something and he just came back so he goes upstairs. took a sister to go. Hey when the photo contest. I'm trying to get back to school. I won the contest. I'm bad at school. Can you help me out. Is it helps. Teachers are study and get ready to go back to school and then he sees those little stick animals that show could gave him earlier his Mama. Maria put them in the garden. He's like Oh. I guess that's what they're supposed and he means show back at school together. Thanks for being here at my school school because she doesn't go to the Simpson. Thanks for being here for me and as he wants back in the school he's Kinda getting another exciting attacking getting depressed because everyone's talking about him whispering and he's kind of get overwhelmed and handed sugar. I pulled him back. Obviously not an end like pulls a by the hand back to his classroom to help and when he opens the door everyone's like oh shoes bag in any just shuts it began overall again an and goes into the bathroom like get some catches breath in like brief and it's Stevens there and he opens the bathroom door. I'd knew you'd be alive. uh-huh and he's like my best friend and I couldn't I couldn't have gone on my only friends with any kind of brings back to reality and grounded pulling out the bathroom you see Ron and reminding there and every kind of like rekindle yeah we kind of had a thing on the bridge but like we can go past asked this and everyone's their sugars airlie talking still and we hear bitch on the silent stairwell like come walking actually got everything's game so sappy. God hears. She's like Let me guess. He's GonNa apologize like she always does. You're a moron Iran Iran and that's when shoka grabs her hand and start signing when Moron isn't sign language. It's just about it's it's. It's nice soc- Shoko kind of her her now now H. Yet she signed it wrong and Choko was like hey moron. This is how you sign more and it was a good like finding supposed to actually stands up for. It's supposed to be array deeming moment for now being like Oh. She's learning to sign. That's nice but it's like the first thing you signed to show more on so I solution and choosing Oh. That's pretty close to what you're trying to say okay yeah. I thought her hand came doesn't let me fix it but the other way you guys described it makes more sense in a better seen anyway so now that they're all like rekindle stuff they mended the bridges and all the hurt feelings show you goes on to like the fence folate courtyard of the school and seasonal stands shots of all its friends and everyone's happy and he gets all emotional up. We get another shot of like the shape of voice. Which is what the movie opened with so it's like a nice book end to the to the opening so yeah? That's that's a silent voice. He accept public people into his life God. I'm not even GONNA ask anyway so yeah. Let's let's chat. Shall we so you know how y'all felt about bitch girl that that's how I just felt about show you the entire entire movie just like we can't come back from this. I mean I can see your point of the severity of what he did. It was so bad it's irritable but is that to make the argument that no one is ever a table like there is a threshold of irritability that is right like. I do believe in redemption but I feel like number one. He was feeling ostracized because everyone was like hey you fucking suck. You bullied that deaf girl out of school and also while we're being critical of you we also notice you don't make eye contact but primarily you are a believe that we do not like or want to interact with so setting him up as the victim in the same way as the death girl is not a fair comparison. I guess and I guess I never really saw him that way. I never saw him as a victim like yeah. He was bullied but I was just stayed with fucking movie in like it all comes down to basically we wouldn't have this movie. Show yeah was any other person that would say fuck you as soon as he showed up in high school like if we're all DORK ASS losers. There's if someone who bullied you. In elementary or middle school came up to you and just out of the blue didn't say sorry or anything. It was just like hey. Let's hang out. Would your immediate first reaction be yes. I'm going to fully dive into that but I think another thing. Is that Shoko Oh is so naive like she always wanted to be his friend so like I think just like that validation from him like this is a toxic relationship like I think I think that that that validation from him of like I wanna be your friend. Now was was like hell yeah man. You know what I mean. I think she already had more of an into more of a reason to be more more accepting than if light hey I got bullied by this asshole like elementary school and I never wanted to be his friend and he wants to be friends no thanks but she had more of a a goal worship. They already had a reason to establish that also I would say I was being with show you with these guys saying like he was an asshole. He doesn't deserve to be redeemed. He deserves to be bullied like he was bowing others coon. You also make the case that that's the same as what bitch girls doing. She's like Shoko deserves to be bullied because she's different. She deserves it. It's justified defined for yourself. Why you're treating her like this so you were saying he was a bully now. He deserves to be bullied is just another justification for like. I'm just applying as is happening. I think we want to dissect it. I'm not standing by like yes. It was right of the school to lash out against him. It it was the movie sang in high school now. They are on the in even playing field. That is what I disagreed because he's ready to kill L. himself because his high school life is so terrible because of the repercussions of his actions when he was younger okay okay so it's not so much of yeah. This fucking bully deserves to be bullied. It's because this bullies bullied that does not erase race the debt that has been established by him bullying this death woman okay yeah. I guess I just saw him getting bullied as its consequences. Commodities come up was shitty harm to someone who couldn't really stand up for themselves force them out of school in cost them sixteen thousand dollars in damages and the school was like you know what you're not a good person and we're not going to hang out with you. That seems valid. full-on bullying is a little much but see. I've even when they were kids. I felt it as the reason everyone turned on him because he tried to bring everyone else down when he got trouble and they're like Oh. You were trying to get us in trouble to night. You're going to get ostracize yeah. I think there's just a lot of it. Also is like not a lot of it is that there are things tiller. It should be interpreted in your own mind. That's what it's coming down to right. Now is like we all saw subtext we all saw. These characters is different people so like while while shows like not likeable. I think that because he saw the error of his ways he's he is more redeemable than like now because she still hates. Shoko for literally. No reason you know that brings me point number two so yeah like with the establishment that bitch girl is still bitch girl outside of elementary school. It's SORTA leans into. I specifically remember. There is a Demi. Digitally Bay has a parody of the ending song for Green Book which has a great line. That's it's been stuck in my mind all day. It says perspective is a key. I'm GONNA paraphrase a little bit. I just needed to find someone more ablest this than me and that sort of what now the character was of oh now we can root for show yeah because we have someone who's even worse so he's no longer the villain. It's the person who's even worse see what you mean so establishing. Oh because because I was as a child we can overlook that because she's ablest as an adult well even then still in highschool so not even full adult okay so superbug me so much at least twice in this movie. Someone has has told Shoko hey life is hard. Sometimes you just have to deal with it. Says all of the able bodied bullies to this bullied deaf woman saying hey life sucks sometimes yeah multiple times so they really tried to hammer that point home. That life sucks sometimes as like. Hey No. You don't get to say that you person who bullied this poor defenseless child yeah everyone had the best intention but just that such like tone deafness of hey you struggle just with everyday society but me a person who has everything. I'm GonNa tell you life is hard. Sometimes you just gotTa deal with it yeah to the one person who has not been like visibly affected the most forgiving person to like Jesus Level I would argue the case. There is still There's a saying where it's like. The worst day in someone's life is still the worst day of their life. Regardless of the severity of other people's lives the worst. I S soldier has two faces much worse in comparison to the worst day of late in year old girls but it's still the worst. They live up to that point so it's hard to compare you. Don't don't WanNa make pain and suffering competition into WHO's. Had it worse but it it I think it is much more of a problem with this movie because it's it's the pain and trouble that Shoko is going through isn't flicked it upon by the characters like talking about their struggles as well. Will you have struggled for other reasons. She has struggled because of so I I do think that is a fair criticism of this movie. so it's it's interesting that there's so much subtext and maybe language barrier and miscommunication in a movie about a deaf person communicating how she feels yeah and I I will acknowledge. I am very much in the minority cuzner. The only two bad reviews I could find on rotten tomatoes of this movement really one. I agreed with I've heard some people uh not admonishing but like saying like there's a reason your name was so much more popular than like. I think I think a majority of people do say I I have heard other criticism of it so yeah but like on rotten tomatoes critic reviews is like ninety two percent positive and audiences ninety four and some of the audience were like it's too long. I only like the funny one so I just credited. Uh those things but yeah the one review it was from the village voice. Basically I agreed with it saying hey they coded oded the attack on Shoko in the classroom when they're elementary school as rape because he's like standing between her legs beating on her so like where why do I care about this kid and like I I have the same feeling like I don't care about your redemption. You don't deserve to kill yourself. Of course we're be bullied but like no one knows you you this forgiveness to to bring in another quote from a show. I like Bujak horsemen. You have to live with the shitty thing you did for the rest of your life. I'M NOT GONNA give you closure so sort of going in and being like hey I wanna be friends. Woman I tormented is putting it all on her to to keep being as forgiving as she was as an elementary school kid which she has every right to say. Hey fuck off like her entire. Your family basically did but she just happened to be the most forgiving yeah. I I agree with some of those points I think that's still would back in does not deserve redemption and it's up to because she was the victim the bullying it's up to her to determine if he deserves to be redeemed and in this situation it's based on what the writer wanted. It's not like she's a functioning person. She didn't make so. It's just it's a very scripted scenario because it is a movie. If it was a real life circumstance it'll be up to it would just be up to debate of whether she forgave him or not and that's it because it's a frame narrative. It's more debatable of like. Is this okay or not because it's so much chose to do it for her so we're also already doing long so I won't be too yeah. I'll I'll leave it there with this is a well intentioned idea but it sort of leans into you. Boys will be boys as long as there had good adult. Everything's fine and it's like that's not great yeah. I can see that case that that'll that'll. That'll do that if you want to end on more positive notes because you like now. I'm I mean I'm going to I've been. I just feel defeated like I don't know what else to say like. I I mean I liked it while I was watching. It and I think every point you made is is fair but I don't know I don't have any. I mean I'm not gonNA. I'm not gonNA spend sometime. Defending it like you were defending Iraq and again favorite anime vast majority of people agree that this is great so I I will gladly Bradley Retreat and say it wasn't for me if that's what it comes down to you on a lighter note next week the birds birthday things but we're starting up something special. We made it a year. We did a full year so we're not just doing just doing an anniversary episode. We're doing a month special when we are doing anniversary upset but it's leading into a marathon. Yeah we are where we're diving into to at least my anime origins. We're going to watch a whole mess of four kids silver our one year anniversary since next week is the official anniversary it'll just be as the celebrating but then we're going to have a whole slew of fun people joining us to talk about some questionable at. Eh so next week we're starting off is also dangerous birthday so he picked to Hugh Mu. Yeah I'm excited. I haven't seen anything of it really long time. So I know nothing about it. Yeah I've also never I've seen clips of the four kids done but I've never watched the four kids dub so I'm a little scared for. Hey so so yeah if you have a suggestion for as to get to in like mid November because it's GonNa be a little bit reach out to us or email is are we there yet at Jima.

Make A Convention Appearance

"Hi It's Jamie Shoko. Most web comic view of us today stiff for the day making appearances a local convention. Yeah I know moderation to be in virtually virtually tried to avoid people as much as we possibly can which sort of ironic when you realize. How much of our Wilson is based on well interacting with other people and learning from it one of the ways to do? This is showing up a local convention or any convention for that matter. We scoring publicist. The ideas did did basically make some sort of connection with our fans if at all possible and the way do that ensuring a particular mentioned saying hi how you doing giving a signature sure and maybe even shaking hands you know acting like actual humans. Yeah I know we try to avoid that. And it's not necessarily a bad thing however you're gonNa to find out that the more convention appearances you make better for your bottom line. I mean straight up. It's up some sort of connection with your fan base and by doing so by actually presenting that you're actually breathing person with actual needs and desires and actually worrying about these desires of other humans. Yeah Yeah we actually develop people who are willing to go to bat for US and other weird areas actually by our books. That's definitely a great thing. I mean we definitely WANNA see people. Bill Byers stuff a lot of us. Don't actually right just for the sake of writing because that's important to make sure when we show up at the conventions that were there to actually realise they were trying to build a fan base of some sort actually built a reputation if we have to be grumpy. Old Men if we very pleasant. Hey that works to just longer. You're basically who we are. You know you're gonNA find out to the real connection to what is it worth. The best are the ones that are based on some sort of level of truth. So when you show up at a convention just remember to be who you are not who you think people are expecting the bottom line is make some sort of convention appearance and I think Ashington liked the experience.

To come up with the system, we would live under after democracy and maybe capitalism had failed. I repeat I was nine years old and that know that's a wild assignment one. Apparently, I feel data because all the headlines Thirty three years later talking about democracies and crisis. is at a tipping point. And I agree. But which way our democracy tips? That's up to us.

It doesn't mean I'm not thinking about all of you and what you're going through right now. In Two thousand twenty. Stay well and stay home. Okay onto the show. Actually should go was a thirty one year old seamstress turned cashier and she was on her way to an employee training seminar. She boarded the subway car at Castle Miyazaki Station, a major transfer point on the underground line which would take her to her final destination in west Tokyo. But once she was on the train. She immediately collapsed into a vegetative state. I'm Catholic. Can Zora and on this episode of history of the nineties we continue our look at the rise of Doomsday cults at the end of the twentieth century. Today, the story of a group in Japan that had a dangerous belief in the impending apocalypse. On March twentieth, Nineteen ninety-five five men boarded separate subway trains headed for downtown Tokyo. It was the height of the morning rush-hour. Nine million commuters were making their way to work. These men, all highly educated professionals were about to carry out a deadly attack. Each carried at least two packages wrapped in newspaper and along umbrella with a sharpened tip. At exactly the same time they placed their packages on the floor and punctured them with their umbrellas than they ran off. Within minutes commuters began gasping for air and collapsing as the deadly sarin gas contained inside the packages began to seep out and permeate the air. The men that were responsible for this Sarah attack were members of Shinrikyo. The group was founded in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four in Tokyo Japan by Shoko Asahara. His real name was choosy. Oh, that's a moto. And he was born partially blind. The Sixth of seven children whose parents were poor shopkeepers. After failing to get into medical school. Asahara studied pharmacology an acupuncture. He eventually opened his own pharmacy specializing in Chinese medicine. But in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, two, he was arrested for selling fake remedies, and after being convicted of fraud, his pharmacy went bankrupt. Around this time Asahara joined a small new religious movement called Aygun Shoe, which was a blend of Hinduism and Buddhism. By the mid eighties, he opened his own one room yoga training school, which focused on using yoga and herbal medicines for healing. He drew people to the school by handing out pamphlets and preaching on street corners. In one, thousand, nine, hundred nine, the government granted his school legal status as a certified religious organization, which he called own Shimrikyo or Supreme Truth. Like the religious group Asahara had previously belonged to own based its doctrines on a combination of ancient Buddhist and Hindu beliefs along with his own apocalyptic prophecies. Soon. Asahara began calling himself the ultimate savior, and he claimed he had supernatural powers like ESP and the ability to Leviticus. He preached that he had been selected by the Hindu gods Shiva to create a Utopian society. At its height in the early nineties, the group reportedly had branches in six countries, including Japan Russia and the US with as many as forty thousand followers. Nearly, all of the members in Japan were in their early to mid twenties, and many had attended the country's top universities. Professor Paul Medford is director of the Japan program at the Norwegian University for Science and Technology. He says many of the members had become disillusioned with the pressure of Japanese society to succeed. The members of this group people who had been people gone to elite universities, and somehow had fallen out of the narrow kind of tracks that leads to promotion into a prestige a you know a leak, government, ministries or corporations and kind of falling outside of that for one reason or another, they became alienated and. This religion at and abroad their grade skills and knowledge and my brain power with. Many of the people who joined them were sometimes called. Young. People who were shut INS who spent most of their free time absorbed in computers and comics. They were from generation that grew up watching. And many had graduated to Gacaca, which are book length comics drawn with realistic pictures which are often ultraviolet and depict rape murder and a retrograde future. Those who joined the group were required to sever all contact with their families and to donate all of their assets to the group. With the help of these young scientists and engineers Asahara built a network of warehouses, chemical, facilities and computer firms, and by Nineteen ninety-two omb had amassed more than a billion dollars. Asahara organized the cult like a government. It had about twenty ministries. The Ministry of Science ran the chemical lab. The Ministry of food provided two meals a day to followers, which was seldom more than a bowl of instant noodles, three hard biscuits or a bowl of boiled veggies, actually conditions for most members were pretty bleak. Former cult member say new disciples given and. Cried to sleep and. Drink two and a half gallon hot water each day until they throw up her junior system. Members lived in small cell like rooms and were forced to take part in rituals, which included doing rapid breathing exercises and meditating with the help of a monotonous drone of devices tape to their heads. Some trainees practise the disciplines of staying underwater or enclosed airless spaces for prolonged periods. Anyone, who tried to leave was severely punished with electric shocks. As the cult grew the families of members raised the alarm and complaints of kidnapping, brainwashing and abuse within Ohm rikio became more common. But no one could have predicted what the group would soon be capable of. Setsumi Sakamoto was a thirty three year old Japanese lawyer known for his work against cults. He had successfully led a class action suit against the Unification Church on behalf of relatives of its members, and he was also working on a lawsuit against option rikio. Sakamoto apparently was hoping to demonstrate that all members similar to members of the Unification Church, which are often known as Moonies, did not join the group voluntarily, but were lured in by deception, and were probably being held against their will by threats and manipulations. On October thirty, first nineteen, eighty-nine Sakamoto was successful in persuading Asahara to submit to a blood test to check for his special power that he claimed was present in his body. The results were normal and there was no sign of anything unusual. If this were made public. A could have been embarrassing or damaging to Asahara, because it was one of the ways that he lured new members in. So at three am on November fourth nineteen, eighty nine several omb Shinrikyo members entered Sakamoto's apartment through an unlocked door. Sakamoto struck on the head with a hammer. His twenty nine year old wife was beaten. Their infant son was injected with potassium chloride. A drug usually used to cause cardiac arrest. While the two adults struggled, they were also injected potassium chloride. Sakamoto's wife died from toxic injection, but Sakamoto did not die as quickly and was strangled. The family's remains were placed in metal drums and hidden in three separate rural areas so that in case the bodies were uncovered. Police might not link the three incidents. Police were unable to resolve the case at the time, although some of Sakamoto's colleagues publicly voiced their suspicions of the group. Their bodies weren't found until after the nineteen ninety five Tokyo subway attack when the perpetrators revealed the locations. The murder and the growing clamour from cult members families caused increased attention from the authorities and feeling the mounting pressure own, began preparing for the end of days by experimenting with a number of deadly chemicals. Luckily, most of their experiments failed. In Nineteen Ninety, the group tried to create botulinum and extremely deadly neuro. Toxic chemical produced by bacteria. Members loaded the fermented chemical sludge into several spray trucks, and then drove past and sprayed to US naval bases, Morita Airport in Tokyo, a Japanese government building and the Imperial Palace. The sludge though hadn't purify properly and the neuro toxin had no effect. In nineteen, ninety-two Asahara led forty own followers desire year in an attempt to acquire ebola samples, but their mission was unsuccessful. Again tried spraying the neuro toxic chemical botulinum from a truck in June nineteen ninety-three. This time the target was the elaborate wedding of Crown Prince Narrow Hito. Who is now? Japan's Emperor. Like the first time, the neuro toxin was not made properly. An had no effect. There were also attempts by the group to spray anthrax, but that attempt also failed, and it resulted in a large number of complaints about bad odors, but no infections. Finally called scientists began to focus on manufacturing Saron. Gas at an isolated sheep farm in Western Australia in the summer of nineteen. ninety-three about twenty five members of home moved to the rural farm where they conducted gruesome tests on cheap and managed to kill twenty nine with their homemade gas, then on the night of June twenty-seventh Nineteen, ninety-four, the cult released clouds of sarin gas in a residential area with the help of a converted refrigerator truck. The attack took place near the homes of several judges in this central Japanese city of Matsumoto. Asahara was being sued by a landowner over a real estate dispute any fear he was going to lose the case so own decided to attack the three judges overseeing the matter. Eight people died and five hundred others were injured including the judges as a result, they were unable to deliver a verdict in the case involving Asahara. The attack Matsumoto also served as a test to see how efficient sarin gas was as a weapon of mass destruction. They use the residents of Matsumoto as their guinea pigs. So you might be wondering. What is Saron Gas? Well Sarah is an extremely toxic colorless, odorless gas that works on the nervous system disrupting all bodily functions. Exposure to the chemical usually means the pupils will shrink to pinpoints the mouth and lungs. We'll fill with saliva and bodily fluid, and the heart will begin to slow. Some victims may experience seizures. Death usually comes very quickly. Sarah has been called the poor man's atom bomb because it can kill justice swiftly, there are similar agents to Saron that have common uses. On for instance is used against agricultural pests around the world. Sarah is a kind of pesticide for human, but it kills by crippling the nervous system making it impossible to agree. There is an antidote for Seren. It's called atropine, a cheap and effective medication available on all crash carts in North American hospitals. Serum Gas was developed in Nineteen thirty eight in Nazi Germany by team of scientists who were looking for a better pesticide that targeted the nervous system of insects when several of the scientists were exposed to the chemical. They became quite ill. The Nazi government heard about this and they told the scientists to figure out a way to weaponize the chemical. As a chemical weapon during World War Two. The first time it was used as a weapon was an attack in Helaba one of the deadliest chemical attacks in history. Approximately five thousand people, mostly women and children were killed, and many others died later of cancer and other illnesses. Researchers believe the contamination past not only into the soil and water, but into the gene pool as well. Since the attack and normal number of children have been born in this region with genetic malformations. Sarah has been used more recently in Syria I in twenty thirteen, when according to the United Nations. A suburb of Damascus was hit by government-backed rockets, containing the deadly nerve agent. The death toll varies, but somewhere around fifteen hundred people died including five hundred children. In two thousand seventeen, the world watched in horror as Saron was unleashed in Syria again, images of dead poison children's spread across the world. About, eighty people, including at least twenty five children were killed. More than three hundred others were injured. But back in Nineteen ninety-four after the successful experiment, Massimo auto own began planning what would become one of the deadliest bioterrorist attacks in history? This is the time line of what unfolded on that Fateful Day in Nineteen, ninety five. The attack began at ten minutes before eight am on March. Twentieth as five men boarded subway trains carefully selected for maximum impact. They blended in with other passengers headed for the centre of Tokyo. By eight fifteen, all five converged on the district of Kasumigaseki, where most of Japan's government offices are located. Each man was carrying two to three packages wrapped in newspaper. Inside were plastic bags of liquid Saron. The men ranged from twenty seven to forty eight years old, and we're all highly educated. Three had physics degrees one a degree in artificial intelligence, and the eldest was a cardiologist who had recently quit his job to join the colts. The plan was for the men to all puncture their seren packages at exactly eight am and quickly escaped the trains. They were each carrying an umbrella with a sharpened tip, and they also carried a syringe with the antidote. Just in case they were exposed to the chemical. But a couple of things didn't go according to plan. The cardiologists had second thoughts and punctured just one package before exiting the train. There was just one small fool in his package, and the seren barely leaked out people on board that train suffered just minor poisoning in the Renault serious injuries. But on board another train, the packages were punctured effectively and sarin gas leaked rapidly into the air within two stops. People started coughing and collapsing. Normally. Saron is odorless that the cult scientists had not purified it properly, so it smelled like burning rubber. When the train stopped, people came pouring out onto the platform, gasping for breath, confusion and panic filled the air. No one had any idea what was going on. Meanwhile Selah engagements was leaking from the train into the station, spreading the poison further. Similar situations took place on the other trains. Soon subway entrances looked like battlefields with poisoned commuters, laying on the ground, convulsing and gasping for air. Some had blood gushing from their nose and mouth. In some cases once the trains were cleared of people, they were sent on down the line with the deadly packages, still onboard unknowingly the sarin gas spread even further. When workers finally found the packages, they had no idea what they were, and they brought them out onto the platform and exposed even more people. In one case, the workers who found packages took them to a small security office while they waited for police to arrive. They too became ill from toxic fumes. After the attack, the five-man rendezvous at a getaway car, and then made their way through morning traffic to a hideout. One of the men had to use his syringe of antidote, but he survived. When news broke about the attack, the scenes on television were horrifying. A disturbing new reality seemed to arrive overnight. Every person in every large city suddenly felt vulnerable, as they saw her stumbling out of trains onto platforms, vomiting with nosebleeds, forming at the mouth and convulsing. No one was sure what the chemical was, or who could be responsible for such terror. Thirteen people died as a result of the attack and nearly five thousand more were injured some with brain damage. Among, the dead were a seventy six year old retiree, a twenty nine year, old man, whose wife was expecting their first child in a month, a subway operator and station manager who died after trying to clean up the poison. Once it was determined that the poison wasn't facs. Erin gas experts were quick to point out that hundreds of thousands of people could have been killed if the poison have been deployed properly. In Tokyo you see the seren liquid was placed in plastic bottles that were wrapped in newspaper. The packages were punctured, and the liquid ran out onto the floor of the subway. To be most effective. Gas Is best delivered via Aerosol, spray. Experts believed. This might be the beginning of a new age. This was the first significant time. Terrorists used a weapon of mass destruction on an urban area. Remember this was long before. Terrorist flew airplanes into the world trade. Center buildings in New York. In a newspaper article two days after the attack terrorism specialist was quoted as saying. We've definitely crossed a threshold. This is the cutting edge of high tech terrorism for the year two thousand and beyond. It's the nightmare scenario that people have quietly talked about for years coming true. And many pointed out that society was extremely vulnerable to these kinds of attacks. Terrorists could easily poison a city's water supply or release lethal gases like Sarin into sports stadiums, convention centers theaters. Some predicted. It was just a matter of time before an attack like this occurred in North America. Two days after the attack police focused their investigation on Shinrikyo. More than a thousand police officers backed by a chemical warfare unit raided two dozen locations linked to the colts. The main focus was their rural retreat near a mountain hamlet on the scenic slopes below Mount Fuji. Television footage showed hundreds of police in riot gear, marching down a dusty road toward the cult's ramshackle collection of buildings. For many. It brought back memories of the branch. Davidian raid in Waco Texas that occurred two years earlier. But in this case, no weapons were used, and no one was injured. Police cut through locked doors with power saws. Some officers even carried caged canaries to detect the presence of poison gas, a bygone technique deployed in coal mines. Once inside the main Dojo police were shocked to find about fifty cult members suffering severe malnutrition from fasting. They found one woman locked in a box. Other captives had been drugged. Four year old Shoko Asahara was nowhere to be found. Before the end of the day police, these barrels and barrels of chemicals used to make sarin eleven million dollars in cash and ten kilos of gold. They also found bottles of the antidote to Saron gas masks and chemical protective suits. Over the coming days, police would seize enough chemicals to make enough sarin to kill over four million people. Own denied any role in the attack. They said they were being framed by the government. Person said the chemicals weren't being used to make nerve gas. They were being used to weld and process computer chips. Professor Medford was living in Tokyo at the time of the attack in one, thousand, nine, hundred five about three days after the attacks, somebody came through my apartment buildings, and probably the most other buildings in that area in southern Tokyo and the ultimate region where I lived and put pam pro on recoup homes pamphlet into my mailbox. I, I remember reading that and it talked about the J. CIA or the Japanese CIA and claimed that they had done this to frame on Rico and they were also blaming the US and that's things always as a big conspiracy theory. Initially police didn't publicly link the call to the attack. They said the raids were carried out as part of other ongoing investigations against home. But then five days after the attack, Japanese police opened a murder investigation against the group. Officers raided the cult's main compound again this time armed with a murder warrants. Inside they found a hidden room with highly sophisticated chemical laboratory, capable of producing a large quantity of nerve gas. The secret door to the room was hidden behind a huge Hindu statue. Police also found rooms or underground containers that had been used to confine people who tried to flee the colts. Then to other shocking incidents took place I on March twenty eighth eight days after the attack. Japan's top police official in charge of the investigation was shot four times by master sealant. The chief of the National Police Agency was leaving his condo on the way to work when a gunman wearing a black raincoat and a white surgical mask shot him in the shoulder, stomach and leg, he underwent surgery and survived. The talker had fled by bicycle, and it wasn't until a year later that an own member and former Tokyo police officer confessed to the shooting. Then seven weeks after the attack on the night of April twenty third thirty six year, old Hideo Muir I top scientists was heading into homes Tokyo headquarters. There was a huge crowd of reporters and police standing outside the building as Muir I approached suddenly a man broke through the crowd, and began to stab and slash I've repeatedly. Television networks broke into regular programming across the country to broadcast the attack and footage showed a knife plunging into Mirai side. He underwent surgery at hospital, but died later from blood, loss and internal injuries. The attacker called himself a right wing extremist. He told police he wanted to punish me awry because of the trouble caused by the cult. Professor, Mitford said this kind of attack was not uncommon in Japan and Japan has a history of of that. I Major Socialist leader was stabbed to death in the early sixties. former ambassador Reischauer, the US ambassador. Edwin Marisha was stabbed by a rightist. In in the early sixties, so there's actually kind of a history of that. A former prime minister was to actually a right-wing prime minister after he left office in nineteen sixty, so yeah, the sort of thing is is quite common. Nearly two months after the attack Japanese police finally made their first major arrest in the case. They arrested oems. Intelligence Minister Yoshihiro Enu. He was the suspected field commander in the subway attack, and was taken into custody after police found a notebook, in which she kept a record of timetables and numbers of passengers who use the subway lines were the Sarah nerve gas was released. But still Shoko Asahara remained at large. Authorities reportedly know the whereabouts of Choline Shoko Asahara camera crews got his car without him in on its way out of Tokyo on Saturday the police have it closed because they are afraid of what his followers might do. While grim-faced troops have uncovered a powerful arsenal of chemicals enough to make fifty tons of the nerve gas used in the subway attack. They don't know of cult. Members have additional seren hidden away. Finally on May Fifteenth Nineteen ninety-five Hundreds of police officers stormed owns compound at the foot of Mount Fuji. They arrested forty year old cult leader, Shoko Asahara and fourteen other top followers, and charge them in connection with a sarin gas attack on the Tokyo. Subway system police said they found as a herald sitting in silent meditation in a Hidden Room beneath the third floor of the truth building number six at the cult's massive compound. The room apparently resembled a large coffin with a foam floor. Asahara with long flowing hair and wearing a lavender robe was put in a police van as he had it away along a rural highway. The entire thing was broadcast on Japanese TV networks. Some comparative at the time to the police chase of OJ Simpson that had happened less than a year earlier. There are several theories about why ohm decided to release the poison gas in the Tokyo subway system. Most center around the belief that I wanted to provoke a world war, they believed the US would be blamed for the attack, and this would lead to a full out nuclear war between Japan and America. which would eventually bring about the end of the world? Only own followers would survive, and they would live in a new utopian world. It took many years, but eventually one hundred eighty nine cult members were brought to trial in connection with the subway attack. All but one were convicted. Thirteen were sentenced to death, including own leader Socal Asahara and four of the attackers. The fifth attacker received a life sentence in exchange for his cooperation with the police investigation after his arrest. In July, twenty eighteen twenty three years after the attack with all appeals exhausted so Asahara and six other own leaders, including the group's lead scientists, and the lead chemist were executed by hanging. Several others including the four attackers remain on death row. Despite the deadly legacy of Omission Rikio, the group continues to exist, but in a new way. Home splintered into two groups after the attack Alaw and Noah also known as the circle of light. The government disband the groups instead. They put them under surveillance. Professor Mitford explains that Japan has a very complicated history with new religions. So during world, war two or even before the nineteen thirties, wind Japan really turned militarist and kind of state Shinto became almost the official religion. Many new religions were suppressed. Including Soka Gakkai. which is this New Buddhist? Relatively new Buddhist sect. Its leaders were imprisoned. At least one of their leaders died in prison during World War Two and because of that experience, Soka Gakkai has been very suspicious of the state. Very much opposed to any kind of state, authorities or law that would. Give the state, the ability to suppress or control religions. Surveillance of the to religious sects means the authorities can conduct onsite inspections and other checks. It also means the groups must report the number of believers they have. But in two thousand eighteen, the Japanese government lifted surveillance on Hickory. Noah after they argued in a lawsuit that they have rejected oems beliefs. They currently have about one hundred and fifty members. Ala which remains under official scrutiny, still follows Asahara's teachings, and in fact has deepened its ties to owns doctrines according to officials, it has fifteen hundred members and growing.

March 20, 2020: Tokyo Subway Attack

"Today is Friday March twentieth. Twenty twenty on this day in nineteen ninety five. The assumption rikio cult killed thirteen people when they released. Saron one of the deadliest nerve gases in the world into the Tokyo subway system. Welcome to today. True crime apart cast original due to the graphic nature of today's crime listener discretion is advised. Extreme caution is advised listeners. Under the age of thirteen today we're covering the option rikio terrorist attack of nineteen ninety five which left thirteen people dead and thousands more injured in the days following the attack. Japanese people were glued to their television screens as authorities hunted for those responsible. Let's go back to the morning of Monday. March twentieth. Nineteen ninety-five just as the Tokyo. Subway system was reaching. Its busiest point. It was sunny and brisk that morning as commuters stepped off the street and made their way down to the subway beneath Tokyo. The relative warmth was welcome people on the crowded platform at Kasumigaseki station waited patiently as packed. Trains rolled in passengers disembarked like Amorphous. Clouds of dark suits leather briefcases and harried faces. Those waiting on the platform moved forward to fill in the available space. The doors slid shot and the train glided out of the station. At first the ride seemed like any other those standing held firmly to handrails and avoided making eye contact with their fellow. Commuters Shatter was at a minimum. The train was moving at its habitual rate but not long. After the train had left Kasumigaseki station. A peculiar chemical smell began to waft through one of the carriages. It was strong and not completely unpleasant. Some likened it to paint thinner and while no one was sure what the smell was or from where it was coming. The crowd started to shift uncomfortable and confused. Something was wrong. The air inside the carriage began to feel thick and people started to cough loud gasping coughs. They were fighting to get air into their lungs. All around the cramped space people seem to lose control of their bodies. Some sat convulsing in their seats still more were slumped against the walls or those standing near them as commuters sought to help or move away from the people with the worst symptoms. Some noticed a spreading pool of liquid in the middle of the car. Tendrils of the substance fingered out from what looked like a discarded plastic bag those closest to. It realized that the smell was coming from the puddle. A mad scramble began. No one wanted to touch the ominous liquid in the hysterical commotion. Someone thought to set off the emergency alarm. The train was still speeding beneath the streets of Tokyo. When passengers began to foam at the mouth people watched in horror as blood ran from the nostrils of others. Even those far away from the puddle were affected they struggled for air vomited shivered uncontrollably and felted desperate burning in there is as the train pulled into the next station screaming spread from the carriage to the platform doors to the train opened and waiting passengers were greeted with the horrific sight of convulsing bleeding and suffocating people immediately station staff began ordering evacuation of the platform with panicked urgency in their voices. They directed people to the nearest exit already. Those who could were pushing to get off the train. Some made it onto the platform only to collapse before they could get to an exit on the street above frightened. People streamed out of the subway. They held makeshift masks over their faces. Hoping to avoid breathing in the noxious air within minutes troops from an army chemical warfare unit. Were on the scene. They arrived in vehicles. Specially designed to clean poison from the air even as makeshift medical tents. Were set up on the sidewalk. Officials were determined to find out all they could about what had happened looking like. They stepped out of a science fiction. Movie troops enlarge orange. Spacesuits made their way down into the subway already on the hunt for the truth in the EERILY empty train cars. They found the remnants of the liquid pools on the floor. They determined that it had indeed come from a plastic bag which by the looks of things had been punctured by something sharp. The bag and the liquid were carefully collected and removed from the train. Testing would later reveal that the liquid was seren one of the deadliest nerve gases in the world. Someone had used it as a weapon. Identical bags were discovered amidst similar grisly scenes on four other. Tokyo trains on the streets above the tunnels. The city resembled a war zone. Ambulances raced through the streets rushing to get victims helicopters landed on those same usually packed roads. Ready to airlift people to hospitals around the country. When the dust finally settled the attack had killed. Thirteen people seriously injured at least fifty more and left over a thousand people with permanently affected vision and no one knew who was responsible yet coming up. We look at just who carried out this deadly terror attack listeners. I'm excited to announce that crime junkies flowers has a new podcast original series. I think you'll really enjoy.

Follow supernatural with Ashley. Flowers free on spotify. Or wherever you get your podcasts. Now back to the story at the peak of rush hour on the morning of March Twentieth Nineteen Ninety Five. Tokyo subway system was thrown into chaos. When seren gas was released in five separate train? Carriages across the network in all the deadly attack claimed the lives of thirteen people and injured over a thousand more. The evening edition of Japan's Yomiuri Shimbun. The most read newspaper in the world headlined the incident the moving gas chamber the phrase called to mind the death camps of World War Two where millions of Jewish people were murdered indeed Saron was developed by Nazi scientists during the early part of World War Two but was never weaponized for use against the allied forces in fact the first confirmed use of Saron wasn't until nineteen eighty-eight when Saddam Hussein's forces us the nerve agent to kill an estimated five thousand Kurds in northern Iraq. The gas is typically odorless in its purest form but impure seren does have a faint smell which is likely what passengers on the Tokyo subway noticed on the morning of March twentieth suspicion quickly fell upon the option rikio Colt who had carried out a similar plot one year earlier in the Japanese city of Matsumoto in June of nineteen ninety four. The cult used seren to target judges presiding over legal dispute in which the group was embroiled. That attack left eight people dead now with. Sarran confirmed as the gas used in the subway. The group was on the country's radar once again. The Japanese people watched their televisions feverishly lapping up news about the attack and the hunt for those responsible. Large wanted posters of suspects from the called were placed prominently around the country. It wasn't long before they started to get results. Days after the attack police raided the assumption rikio compounds. Hundreds of members were arrested in connection with the deadly attack and once some of the culprits were in custody officials. Were better able to piece together. Exactly what had happened on the trains? The cult which had membership numbering in the tens of thousands across Japan and Russia boasted. Its own dedicated science minister. The group's chemists had worked to develop their own supply of Sarran and had plotted with the group's leader. Shoko Asahara to spread the gas across the subway system. Five pairs of option rikhye members carried out the attacks simultaneously when the targeted trains had pulled into stations. The terrorists had dropped sealed plastic bags full of liquid. Saron onto the ground then using umbrellas with sharpened tips. They punctured the bags before swiftly making their escape on their way out of the station. They each swallowed pills containing seren antidote. Leaving chaos and death in their wake. Most of those responsible for the attacks were in custody within days but the search continued for the group's leader Asahara. It would be two months before he was finally apprehended. At one of the cult's compounds hidden in a coffin like chamber Asahara was clutching fistfuls of money when police finally rated the complex at his trial in two thousand. Four Asahara spoke very little and was eventually sentenced to death along with six other members of his cult. He never offered any explanation for the attack of March twentieth. Nineteen ninety five but authorities came to their own conclusion. The attacks were intended to disrupt an upcoming police. Crackdown on the group. Some cult members also seem to believe that the tax would help usher in the apocalypse. Asahara had long promised his followers. It achieved neither goal following the attack. Option Rico was stripped of its tax exemption as a religious organization and was bankrupted paying compensation to the victims of their attack but the group did find a way to survive. It changed its name and now exists as Alif to this day. The Tokyo subway system remains one of the busiest in the world. Over eight million passengers ride daily looking back on the attacks. Experts agreed that had the gasping distributed more effectively. The death toll could have been in the tens of thousands inefficiency in this case actually saved lives.

Travel Mixtape of Underwear

"Before we start this week on a podcast called can't find my way home. There's an interview with me. So if you're interested in me engineers. Japan very possible. You're not but we'll let that slide for the moment. If you would like to hear me talk about just again. Living in japan being an ex pat and wondering the world and stuff and honestly not trying to make jokes. It'd be funny just Talking is honestly and openly. Could at the moment it's not bad. The the show's really good so can't find my way home guy who talks to people who live in other countries about their experience in other countries. So if you're into that if you're listening to this you might be interested in people who live in other countries you get some interesting perspectives and experiences. People who've lived there before we get to actual news why this is actual news. It's a story from the news. An interestingly in this happened. And i find it interesting because because as an outsider. It's something you've seen before but now you're seeing it in a very different way. In japan nike has released a commercials like three or four minutes long. It's about three girls who basically are all being bullied. One is japanese. She's stressed out. Parents don't think she's good enough. One is korean heritage but listen. Japan probably born in japan is the idea And one is half black and they're all discriminated against for different reasons. This is a nike ad so they play soccer and feel better about life and stuff and become good people now. The response is interesting because this is critical of japan. I've mentioned on engineers japan many many times that bullying is an issue in japan. Now it's an issue in japan because there are actually bigger problems have kind of insulted. There's no gun threat like there's no one coming into schools and shooting up the schools. They don't worry about that. But there's a lot of pressure on kids in society There's a lot of exclusionary behavior and bullying is a result. They have about ten million different definitions for harassment. Any kind of sort of problem you can have now has a name in japan. It's some kind of harassment power harassment sexual harassment. Those are pretty obvious ones but they have maternity harassment. People get like harassed out of their jobs because they're pregnant or to take maternity leave. The comments though are the more interesting part because this is a problem that i have run through in life. I am a white male so one of the more interesting things is. I don't see racism as particularly big problem because barely anyone is racist towards me and so i've never experienced it so if you've never experienced it's actually quite hard for me to have an opinion on it. Of course you inherently have opinions on everything. I am lucky in that. I've come to the conclusion that i don't know what i'm talking about in this case japan as a society. A lot of big chunk of that society hasn't gotten there yet and there's a big chunk of japan that doesn't really feel comfortable with being criticized. Certainly not by people outside japan but they see nike is a non japanese company criticizing japan. They think that's not fair. So the first comments. This came from an article. Nikkei asia and so i didn't actually get the actual comments but these are translations and actually put a little bit more faith in their ability to translate the my own so the quote is i got hurt by watching the video. I felt these. Bullying scenes are exaggerated expressions. Said at twenty three year. Old man told nick as you it makes all of japan look like a society where such bullying happening now. Twenty three year old. Japanese man. Probably just like i as a white dude has never experienced bowling. But if you are a half korean girl or a half black girl in japan bullying would be happening all the time. So he's saying this doesn't happen as much as the commercial makes it looks like it happened. The commercials only looking at three girls and it's looking at the situation that they share that they're all experienced bullying. That doesn't say all of japan. Does that that saying it's happening these three girls. What he's doing is extrapolating in that. You've criticized these. Three girls have tough lives. How can you say that that is happening. But it would be very easy to go out and just fine. Three girls who've had similar experiences the next quote. The japan korea issue can never be understood by foreigners said one critic on twitter referring to the tension between the two countries over the history. That is a weird thing to say because what cannot be understood. Japan occupied korea. It took korean people and brought them to japan and use them as slaves. When korea was freed from japan's rule those people who were in japan they stayed did not become japanese citizens. Their descendants did not become japanese citizens. They are treated like second class. People there is a lot of racism towards korean people in japan. What don't i understand that. The korean people didn't sort of forgive japan quickly enough. I lived in korea. There is a lot of unfair hates in korea towards japan. I've lived in japan. There's a lot of unfair hate from japan towards career that racism is real in. It exists an ethically korean kid who was born in japan and grew up here and still treated differently. That happens for real. They still have separate schools for korean kids in japan. It is interesting when they say. A foreigner can't understand because what they're saying that we don't understand the subtleties of the issue but the subtleties of the issue are actually very simple. But these are not unique to japan. Korea this is the same sort of issues that happened. In america situations that happen in other countries for other reasons. I was born in ireland. They have catholics and protestants. They have issues. It's actually not hard to understand your. Both christians and god says to forgive and they don't so nike said to further. My initial point nike told this newspaper video is based on the testimonials of real athletes. Who like many young people today. Struggle to feel accepted for who they are. Discrimination is global issue in it exists around the world absolutely. I think this is true. It's interesting if you watch this commercial there is bullying in japan. That's been reported. Its japanese kids to other japanese kids but imagine if you were different from japanese kid is just going to be that much worse and it's not much clearer so it makes you that much more of a target. This is something. Because i have have kids in school was something i was very concerned about. I will throw a link to the commercial in the post engineers. Japan dot com. If you're interested watched the video and then think about the comments like this video is really just saying be nice to others and the negative backlash to that is really interesting because the negative backlash actually saying. You shouldn't say that these bad things happen. in japan. they happened in japan. They happen everywhere. And that doesn't mean you shouldn't address the issue since we're getting all social justice warrior all of a sudden. It's interesting news story. There's a lady called shoko i. She's the only female city councilwoman in cusack zoo. So that would seem like a good thing. You got a council. That was all men and she's the first woman to come in the mix stuff up unfortunately she published in book not unfortunately the she published new book the contents in the bad thing to happen to her. She published an e book about how she was sexually assaulted by the seventy year. Old mayor. The weird thing to me and this was something. I actually had to go to court and defend myself or something. Once and the incident. They were discussing three years earlier and they were asking for specific details and my honest answer was like dude. It was three years ago. i can remember. She publishes this book and she says. I was assaulted in two thousand fifteen by the mayor of the city. The mayor countered that claim by saying on that day in two thousand fifteen. The doors and curtains to my office were open. So there's no way. I could have committed that assault because everyone would have seen it because my doors and curtains were open on this very specific day in two thousand fifteen which i remember correctly. The here's something. I always wanted to see happen in court. Case is they can answer that question perfectly. Clearly the next question should be. What did you eat for lunch. The next day in two thousand fifteen which they won't be able to remember or if you're on the box if you're the one being you know attacked by the lawyer be interesting to ask the lawyer like. Do you remember what you were doing on a very specific day. Thousand fifteen because the expectation that anyone else could remember. It is actually perfectly unreasonable. So that's clearly just something he said in the moment to try to. You know say didn't do this so you'd think okay so. This woman's been assaulted. The mayor's given a really lame excuses to why it could not have happened where we go from here. America's in trouble. That's actually not what happened. That's why this is sort of relates to the first story. And i said social justice for she was accused by the mail assembly members. Basically all of them. There's massive backlash. And they said she's been harming the dignity of the council and they've called for a recall so is voted on by the population. I don't know how many people voted but the residents who did vote ninety percent voted for her to be recalled and taken out and she was fired. Here's to me. What is a very realistic story. This is a woman who's in all male environment. She's treated poorly. She has no support by the other men in the situation. She publishes book to try to get a message out there the backlash and she basically gets taken down Because there is no support for her in this world. Man is podcastone taken real. Turn but i don't know it. It sucks because i absolutely believe with all. Maybe i'm influenced by all the dirty news. I read that a seventy year old. Mary as soon as i said he was seven. He did it. That's the weird thing to me. I've had a couple of conversations recently with about people who'd be in power a honestly believe that once you hit whatever retirement age public service should come to an end so like right now. The president trump was he's late seventies biden's late seventies. Both of them if they had one either would have been going into their eighties in their second term. I actually think that is not the appropriate aid for a leader. I think sixty five should be your last term so if you win the election when you're sixty four sixty five you do get those years so you are out before your seventy obama. He was in his forties. He became president and he was one of the youngest presidents ever i think. Jfk was around the same age maybe a year or two older. So you're in your forties and fifties. Yeah you're old enough to have some life experience and do some stuff. You're still young enough to be able to do the job and not be exhausted all the time. I'm almost fifty in seriously every now and then i wake up. I'm like man. I can't do anything and i'm you know. Nothing i do is hard. This really just shows how far sort of the equal rights movement has to go in japan. Because yeah this woman. I think she was probably telling the truth. No-one bleed or maybe they did believe and they just didn't care and they just got rid of her for since we're already on the sexual assaults god what a terrible thing to start with. There was the director of a medical clinic and he has been arrested for sexually assaulting a nurse. She said this was after the clinic closed and they weren't an examination room. She said she had lower back pain so he offered to give. I guess free medical treatment and what he did. He touched her chest and lower body then he claimed it was medical treatment. Now if you have lower back pain as a woman if you have large breasts it actually could be related. I will give you that touching. The breasts isn't going to fix that. Problem is that's not a medical treatment and touching the lower body. It's a bit unclear what that means either but or trying to grab the crotch but that isn't connected to your lower back as well. I'm not a doctor and i know this is factually accurate. What i'm saying right now. Is that if you have lower back. Pain touching your but probably isn't going to do that much you might be in a case where it was a serious checkup. They might be checking around the lower back yard and get into sort of the but region but it was more like your muscles. The thing is the doctor is not going to trick the nurse. She knows what a legitimate lower back medical treatment would be so. This line of defense is a pretty poor choice because he's actually choosing it to use it on another medical professional. Who could tell you. I have seen lower back examinations. I've participated in improbably. If that was sort of the nature of the clinic. They worked at or at least you would know what's appropriate and then she would know right away. I'll just grab my ass so it'll be interesting to see how accepted this defenses because again just being in japan and this being the way the way the world is here the judge might be like well. Yeah of course you got to touch a woman's but to check her lower back that's just science. Okay so i kinda through all the dirty news upfront. Which is nice change. I usually save it for the end. Who was a survey done by cbi. They asked one thousand three hundred and ninety one men and women would actually know the actual proportions of men and women but that's secondary. Have you had sex with someone other than your lover. So i assume for the younger people they mean boyfriend girlfriend for older people your spouse. The numbers are interesting so in eighteen to twenty thirty four point eight percent of men. I've had sex with someone other than their lover. Twenty four point three percent of women have had sex with someone other than their lover in your twenty s. The number for men drops from thirty four. To thirty percent the number for women jumps up from twenty four to forty seven percent in japan so that was the shocking bit pretty. All the other numbers are not a big surprise but in their twenties half of women of these one survey again sample size could actually be very small that half the women were having sex with someone other than the person they were supposed to be with which was shocking makes makes me think i should talk to more twenty year. Old thirty to forty men goes from thirty percent to forty eight point. Five percent the number of women that point maybe they start to calm down actually starts to drop so it goes from forty seven percent to forty one percent then the men really start doing their job from forty to fifty. The number goes from forty eight point. Five percent to fifty. Four point one percents. That's your midlife crisis trying to get your your last. Bits of work done women. I have just settled into their own pattern of life. It drops from forty one percent to thirty four point seven percent and then fifty sixty for men. It goes to sixty point one percent. So it's actually you're less likely to find a man between fifty and sixty who has not had sex with someone other than lover at the time. This did not actually specify now that i read it now so maybe all the guys in their twenties and thirties are actually like oh of course. I've never done that. But they have and they just don't say it but when you get. You don't really care about hiding anymore. My assumption was that it was current. Like if you're in your forties and fifties and you're cheating on your wife now that's the number we're talking about. Do actually now. That i think about it was not clarified. That well for the women in the fifties and sixties forty to fifty was thirty four point seven it drops a twenty three so the question i have is. How are they meeting each other. Which was luckily answered in the survey so for men they mostly did this by meeting people through an app now. They did not say what the app was. That is an incredibly disappointing lack of information. Some people might want to know what app to avoid you know. If they were they were absolutely not looking to find a lover on the side. They they would really want to know. What app do i not install on my phone so that i could really you know. Make sure this doesn't happen to me a meeting at twenty to thirty year old. Who's clearly half of them are more likely to have sex with someone other than their lover also by friends so they meet a friend and the friend has a girl that they like and they meet up that way or they just picked girls on the street or somewhere else bar or something for women. It was actually more interesting for women women who are having sex with someone. Other than their spouse their number one choice was a former lover. So it'd be like an ex-boyfriend hook up with him. Who knows how often. But it's like. Oh this guy. We weren't a good relationship but he was a good point. you know. Throw him around her two male friends since the friends with benefits situation and this was the one that was interesting to me. Because those two. They're kind of like safe options at this guys. I know so. I know i'm pretty safe with these guys store employees that they frequent often so i guess they kind of have a relationship with the store employees. They know them they talk them. But that is almost like a fantasy situation from a manga to me like you work in this woman's clothing store in a woman whose really hot comes in regularly and then you start blinking. I mean that is. I'm sure that's already. A manga was actually no reason. Even suppose i bet it already is. That is a fantasy out there. Certainly. it's a category of poor so if you're in japan in you want to know why there are so many love hotels issues like pretty much half everybody's cheating at some point in their life underwear. I've not done many underneath stories but this guy had a couple of interesting points so we re diving back into the underwear. Thief arena the pool of underwear first of all. I'm going to make a post. It's an ongoing joke in engineering. Japan is the guy who lays things out so whenever they find someone who's committed a crime and has a store of it's not always underwear but that's actually what started it. They lovingly put down a blue tarp and lay out all the things in this case underwear so that everyone can see them. And i always think that's a really weird job so like let's say marijuana plants you put down a blue tarp and like a school gymnasium. You put out all the marijuana plant and take pictures of them for the news. It was weapons it would be the same an underwear this one. It was bicycle seats. This guy just been stealing bicycle seats for years and so it was. It was really weird to see like just. Two hundred bicycle seats laid out in the middle of gymnasium on a blue tarp. This is a construction worker. he's six years old. All these pervy crimes are having to slightly older men. And i'm like you think they would have figured something out by now but or maybe that's when they get desperate because they're losing that that spark of youth certainly it would be a sad. And if after all these episodes where i talk about how weird and creepy these guys are that i got arrested for stealing underwear but luckily that's not happening so at least if i get arrested for underwear theft it's a frame up by someone who listens to the podcast at this point must be put that out there now. This guy he was a construction worker. He's going around this town. He grabbed some underwear that hanging up to dry. They still hang clothes outside to dry. Japan have dryers. That wasn't what they called. People called to get him arrested for there was a suspicious vehicle so they called the cops and they said look this van parked around weird someone go check it out the please go and check it out when the police went to talk to them you drove away so that's already like ooh you know if you immediately start driving away. That's suspicious so the police catch him now. He's arrested for interfering with the duties of a public servant. Technically at this point the only thing he did was not talked to the police because the police wanted to talk to them. That is now an offense in japan very interesting little twist to the rules there so if a policeman wants to talk to you refuse you now can technically be arrested for committing a crime. Because you're interfering with his job in his van. He had thirty pairs of underwear. So i don't know if these were like safety one's the backup ones the ones you had to have around him all the time. Just you know. Create a sense of satisfaction. They didn't say they had all been stolen recently. So this could have been like select ones. That are his sort of travel mixed tape of underwear so of course. He got arrested when they found all the underwear. Like this is suspect. So let's go to his house and searches house. Which is what you do in his house. They found nine hundred pairs. They did not give a timeframe of how many pairs of underwear he was stealing like a day or a month. But that is a lot of work aurelia time. If he's carrying around thirty pairs he's got like a need to have women's underwear with him regularly when he was arrested. He said i targeted the kinky reach. Now that's a funny joke in english because there's an area in japan called kinky. of course there's an english word. You can make a couple of jokes yourself. I'm not asking to bother doing it for you. Because i think it's actually so self evident that the joke is kind of falls apart but it is funny the first time you come to japan you hear like oh yeah. We want to go to the kinki region. It's funny the first time you're gonna find it funny then. It stops being funny pretty quick because it just becomes a place so this is one of those guys who's dedicated significant portion of his life stealing underwear and it's it's sad that if he kinda kept his cool and just talked to the call he probably could have gone out of it. You just say. I'm playing poker mongo. Sorry a move on. That's still thing that happens and actually happens around my house a lot. There's a lot of suspicious cars that are just sitting really late at night outside the park near my house which is a really suspicious place to sit. But it's because there's a pokemon go jim. They're they don't want to get out of their car because it's cold. So they sit in their car and they play pokemon go and then they'll drive like twenty feet and stop again about a suspicious car can get but i know what they're doing now so i don't feel as threatened by them but every now and then i want to be like maybe so much checkout these cars. Let's talk some cove news. We got Record cases here again now. It seems like people are just living their normal lives. They wear masks. They wash their hands but they basically ignore cova suge last week so this is already within a week. There's been changes so i have to. Actually you know timeframe this beginning of last week suge doubled down on the go travel campaign which has new engineers. Penny signify very solid stands. This is not a good idea and you should not do this. He wants to give it a six month. Extension an additional seventy three trillion yen now. That seventy trillion yen includes other things. It's not just go to travel but trying to keep these businesses alive by the end of this week right now as so. I'm talking about like over the weekend. Nagoya and osaka along with tokyo have all been removed from the program. Because of record. Breaking numbers here. Oshima was added to the program. But probably we'll be taken off again so now they're slowly taking off all the big interesting cities that you would want to go to because all the big cities are having breaking covid numbers that they've never had before probably because people keep traveling and going out to eat which you're not supposed to do when you're you know have a pandemic going on in the same week. The government has called for people to limit their movements in urban zones. So i go to work They say basically what they're saying. Is i work in this area. I should go from the train station to my work and then go back. The train station go home. That will limit my movements and reduce the chance that i will get covid and then spread it to my office. Building people are not listening. This is not willful defiance. This is not like the government. Can't control me and tell me what to do. This is people just going. Well i wanna go out to lunch. I'm going out to lunch. I wanna go shopping. So i'm gonna go shopping They're not. This is not like a political thing. I think the reason is what you're getting is too contradictory messages. You're saying look. Don't move around too much. But we also have the go-to travel campaign. Please travel as much as you can to keep the economy going and that contradictory message means. It's impossible to take any message. you seriously. If you want people to not move around you have to make it so that people don't move around and that would include goto travel if you want people to go to travel then you have to be like. Wow everyone should go to travel. I can't tell you to stop shopping at that point and stay just within your work areas zone whatever that might be side note eighty seven point eight percent of ten thousand and fifty nine companies have canceled their end of year parties in japan. Couple basically around this season. I always end up talking about. It is called the and kites the end of your party. Your company will get together. You have like basically party where you sit down and drink with your boss and stuff. Y'all get licked up. Forget last year. Let's get you know. Get down to it for next year. It's a nice tradition. That's not happening because of covid and again good. It's actually surprising to me. That's not one hundred percent because this would actually be an excuse of some money on the company's part as well. I mean if i was working for a company in counting i would i would Your mark that money for not happening not going out there and an interesting. It's not. I can't make any jokes about this. Was interesting to show how some things are being handled. So there was a man in his fifties and he had mild symptoms in what they did was put him in one of these sort of quarantine hotels. He's basically living in a hotel until he gets better. He was diagnosed with kobe. On december four. He was in the hotel and this was the interesting thing was how they check on them. Because of course how do you check on these patients in the rooms to make sure they're okay the reason this is news stories because he died. So that's terrible but what was interesting about this story. That came out was how they're checking on the people newsroom so at eight. Am through line with messaging service. In japan they send a message to the person in the room and after their symptoms. How are you feeling today at eight am. The man said i have a headache and some fatigue and then that's it and then at three pm check on them again so basically you get two messages on an app on your phone every day and the doctors asked how you are now. This is where it gets a little suspect again. This is where it gets a little sad because someone wasn't doing their job so at three pm. They sent him a message and he didn't answer. They said to a message of four. Pm he didn't answer and they started calling his room at six thirty eight pm. They went to his room so five hours after he didn't answer so five hours. He was probably incapacitated in some way they actually went up to his room to investigate and they found him dead which is terrible but it shows that. Someone's not doing their job. Because if you're checking at eight and three the reason to check it eighty threes to make sure that they're ok during the day if they no answer so this is what the investigation is going to be. Why did not someone go. Check on him between three and four so they sent a message of four. Maybe that one hours findings in the shower. He's doing something else. He's taken out but when they sent another message at four. The either should've started calling his room or something to wake him up to get him to answer. He didn't they should have gone at that moment and they didn't so someone beat. The doctor beat the person who was supposed to go check on them. Beat the person saying the messages. Something didn't happen there. And that's where the investigation is going. But it is interesting to see if they're using messaging service as it's not diagnostic. But how you feeling today. Are you symptoms better or worse but it can. They can do it without any contact at all. That's actually a very interesting way to know what's happening in these these quarantine situations it's weird to end on a communication story usually. I'll do like the series ones more at the front and then like backload all the dirty stuff process. Maybe the more entertaining lighter stuff. The communications minister wants. Nhk to lower the fees. I have railed against nhk several times on the podcast. Because i hate. Nhk programming for the most part and don't want to pay for it but legally in japan. You're supposed to pay for it now. I don't mind paying for something. If it's good but i don't consider it good so i don't feel like i should have to pay for it like a lot of foreign people. Maybe actually like a lot of people. in japan. they don't watch h k and i've shifted all my entertainment to the internet. So why would i pay for a service. I don't use like the cell phone story from last week. They wanna lower all these fees so they're sort of more in line with other countries and people aren't sort of abusing systems and stuff so the communications minister said this was clearly directed at the director of the president of nhk. If we don't do it quickly during corona when will we do it. Which is absolutely true. Because i can tell you the head of h k does not want to do it at all. He does not want to lower the prices he does. He's making all his money based off these fees and the reason they want all these fees is because that's how they get paid they get their bonuses and stuff one of the things. This is like a decade old story now. The people don't want to pay because they found out that the executives from nhk having parties and going on holidays and stuff using essentially public funds. But this nhk money goes to educate them to spend as they see fit so basically got in trouble but then everyone's stopped paying fees for a little while. That was a big black mark on the nhk as a institution. The goal for the communication minister is to lower the burden on households and japan so people were struggling with money. maybe paying for tv isn't like the biggest priority right now. This robot communication very short story. Japan is now set aside. Fifty billion yen develop six g technology. They're kind of behind on their five g. infrastructure. They were doing the same thing. America was doing was kind of relying on china and wa wa and now they're like maybe that's not the best idea so we use our own authority a little late behind problems and then and then someone just had. The idea was like fuck it. Let's go to six g. This is work on the next one. Maybe japan will make it. I if we make it. I everyone else use ours People love japanese electronics will sell a million. We're going to be the richest dudes ever and everyone else in the room was like yes six g. That's more g so let's do it and apparently they're gonna do it while japan might be behind on five g technology. We may be the first to get sixty technology. So i'm doing like hand gestures like in a gang right now at the computer like yes suck it six g baby leave a text to a voice question comment at voice link dot fm slash site podcast.

Introducing: 'How to Citizen with Baratunde'

"Yo Barrington Day and I wanNA. Tell you a crazy story from my childhood. When I was nine years old, my mother gave me a special assignment. She said it was up to me. To come up with the system, we would live under after democracy and maybe capitalism had failed. I repeat I was nine years old and that know that's a wild assignment one. Apparently I feel data because all the headlines Thirty three years later talking about democracies and crisis democracies at the tipping point. And I agree. But which. Way Our democracy tips. That's up to us. And that is the spirit of my new show how to citizen with Barry tuned. By the way, I'm the Baritone Day in that title, there's no other baritone days. It's a one bear today show. Only baritone Dacia. Because in this show I'm going to introduce you to people who are tapping into that collective power. We are all part of organizing communities to make a difference and change outcomes in areas as diverse as public safety worker rights, voter turnout, even our food systems. Did you know that we can keep ourselves safe without giving all of our money to the police department. Did you know that we can build an economy that works without giving all of our money to Jeff Bezos? Is Wild. This. Show is going to involve you in that project because it'd be very authoritarian for me to make A. Shoko. HOTTA. Citizen Righteous. Talk Down at you. Instead I'm inviting you in literally to be part of the tapings of the show which we live with the audience. And also to convert some of that news rage, you're probably sitting on into action where we are going to give you things, you can do to be a better citizen. Our media isn't fake, but it is incomplete because so far much of the message we've been getting. Broken. The world is as opposed to all the work being done to mend it. Much of the message we've been getting is how alone we are how powerless we are, but there's another side to the story that talks about us as a part of something greater something that we can do together that the current moment as an opportunity with pandemic revolution and all to re imagine and reclaimed this word citizen, take it back from those who've weaponized it against people who don't have the right paperwork. And converted into a verb big enough to invite us all to participate in determining our society, how it works and four home. The home of being the many. Not just the few. How do citizen with Baritone? Day It literally takes all of us. That includes you. Coming August twenty seven to the iheartradio APP apple podcast wherever you listen to podcasts.

Figma and the future of collaborative design

"Welcome back to the all turtles podcasts. A show about the future of work the future of health and entrepreneurs building the future. I'm John Sequence. S Co founder of all turtles today. I'm interviewing show. Komodo the director of product sigma. He's here to talk about how big is allowing for real time collaboration. Even when everyone's working remotely and why that's more important now than ever So we're joined today by Shoko Moto. Who's the director of product at FIG MMA and we talked about Sigma Couple Times on this podcast? We're huge fans of. I Know Phil has gone on and on about But show for anyone who might not be Can you give us an explanation? What does sure so? Figment is a design tool for people. Who want to create user interfaces and so those user interfaces could be a mobile APP or website and it's not just for the designers but it's also for anybody who wants to be part of that process and so It's four stakeholders who maybe care about the design and WanNa give input is for developers who maybe need to build out the design And it's all hosted Online so in the same way as a google docs is online is like the online version of Microsoft word. Figment is like the online version of a number of other designed tools. Sure Yeah So. What are you responsible for? As the director of product. What what Fault Falls New Year? We divide up figment into sort of a couple of large buckets and the bucket. That I focused on is the editor itself. So basically everything that happens after you. Click on a file That sort of my Domi and then a number of other people that I work with in there and we all sort of collaborate on an area cool and company's relatively young right been around a handful of years I actually don't know how old the company itself is I've been there for five years so And when I joined it was before the product launched so it was sort of in stealth mode but I'd But the product have been in development for a number of years before. That's maybe two years before that so it's been around for a little while. Yeah we talked about this a bit earlier prior to the show but we we have a lot of product designers and engineers in the podcast audience. You have a really interesting career path and especially with your education background. Could you just talk a little bit more about your background? I went to school normally up until sixth grade. And then I get a bunch of grades so I went to High School for your after that and then went straight to college. The Catholic when I was thirteen and I studied physics and graduated when I was eighteen and then I went off to purdue for a PhD halfway through my PhD. Decided that I wanted to shift from physics to computers so high level overview. Wow we I have. I have a close friend who has an extremely similar really interesting but we've we've had PhD's Com on our podcast before and talk about how their doctor has been useful in some way or completely starkly different or has always been kind of an interesting journey about how they got the tech world so how does a PhD in physics. Come into play with the work you do now if it does at all. Yeah I mean I don't know for sure that it does But you know definitely going to school you know for more formal kind of education like that gives you a certain way of thinking about problems There was a professor I had. This is an Undergrad Grad school but He had a habit of picking on students. Who would fall asleep in class? And he would. If they'd fall asleep he would like he literally with chocolate. Ben which I I don't know if that's you know a good thing but he chocolate than to wake them up and then He would ask them a question about the material that they missed and of course they would know the answer and then what he would say as well. If you don't know the answer the answer is always zero. One infinity or you can't tell based on the premise. It's it sounds kind of silly actually is like I think about that. Sometimes because you know in business or product design or whatever you're always faced with these situations where you don't know the answer right. You always have to make a decision before you have all the information and the answer is always going to be zero one infinity or you can't tell her whatever the equivalent of that right which I say. There are only a couple of answers that are going to make sense. And you have to sort of figure out based on your gut and based on information that you have like which of these answers and so just to bring it back to figment for a second when I joined sigma. The product hadn't even been released yet and it was in demo form so wasn't You know it didn't look like a shipping product. But I just look at it and it was so fast and so stable and had so many of the nuances right. They just thought about it and I was like well. You know somebody is going to figure this out. Somebody's GonNa get designed tools onto the web because I just looked at this thing. It's obviously possible. I mean this isn't there yet but it's obviously possible and if it is possible then almost certainly it's going to be something that people gravitate towards right because Design is like I think design is like a communication act. It's something that you're doing to explain your thoughts to somebody else to figure something out and put it down and work with people on it and stuff. All of that. Communication stuff happened so much better when you're online and so two just looking at it. I thought well this obviously is going to work like somebody's GonNa figure this out. So maybe you maybe this company will do it. I don't know but let's try. And so in the same way that like the zero one. Infinity kind of thinking was sort of drilled into us in school. It was like how. How do you take these the information that you have and make a really really good educated? Guess I think that's maybe the part that I use the most fascinating and and just as a personal anecdote for you know when I first discovered Sigma I had no probably less crystallized but similar feeling just from a consumer point of view is just like. Wow this is this. Is something like this works way. This is This is going to be huge. And actually let's talk about the company and and maybe even the current climate the the current. You know atomised workforce that everyone is right now stuck at home. Has there been some observable change in behavior for users over the last what two months now? Two and a half months is there have been a spike in users. Is there like a set of features? That's you're discovering is being used in a different way or anything like that. Yeah for sure. plumbing I definitely noticeable increasing usage. It's not I heard some stats. Zoom zoom is just like crazy. It's not crazy like that but definitely if you look at the grass you can see this is when everybody started saying home and you can see the usage go up and what I'm finding interesting is is the features that people ask for or or that they talk about like. There's a lot of sort of chatter on twitter about that sort of pay attention to right. It's not the things that you would think because I think if you think about collaboration you would think. Oh it's probably like commenting like people are GonNa ask about like can I have better notifications from my comments or some. But I think what people gravitate towards more is features around presence if that makes sense. So you know you'll be a figment file and the only way you can collaborate with another designer right now or if you're in engineering. You're collaborating with designer. Or what have you is electronially? Because before you just go to their desk and say hey you know can. Can we talk about this thing and you can't do that anymore? And I think people are finding that a space like Them to sort of you know work with each other in more of this collaborative way. It's sort of like like looking over. Somebody's shoulder and talking and sort of if there's sort of doing something that's a little off from what you were saying. You might draw something directly on the on the screen to show them rant and so on and so people ask for even like really really odd features like they say things like I really want to be able to to wiggle my cursor and half people like notice that I'm here and then like you know or somebody asks for a feature that they call booming. I WANNA be able to somebody's cursor and give him a high five and so those might seem frivolous or silly but I think what it is is that you know being remote and being a digital digitally connected I think people have sort of missed some of the nuance of what it feels like to work together. And when you're in space like a document it feels a little bit more like you're in the same place. People are creating even more of that if that makes sense. Yeah absolutely I mean. We adult turtles. We have a number of projects that touches on that that very sentiment. Oh there's new product or it seems like it. I saw an announcement what's what's figure for education. Oh there's nothing new products per se. I think it's We're just thinking how we Price our offerings for Before the new channel. Yeah well I mean we. We've always had a free education and matures pretty restricted. We had a list of domains that was no. They came from a company. That knows how to do this. And if you if you weren't from one of those domains you can have access the program and we just extended it to a much broader set of users so for example if you're in a boot camp or if you are you know so there's a number of different ways that people learn now and so we're just expanding it to be a much wider group of people who can participate cool. Can we bring it back to like the design process a bit and maybe even some some of this twitter listening is really interesting? Yeah I mean for the Community of users that you have designers engineers. I imagine imagine these people have some strong opinions with what makes good design with. What's a good feature? Where does the impetus for building? Something new come in. Does it start with user research as start with you? Know listening to this chatter online and saying hey that sounds like a good idea and just kind of running with it or is there like a process specific rubric. You guys follow yeah. That's a really good question. I've actually been meaning to write this up but It's sort of like a formal part of it and as an informal part of it In the formal part is basically on quarterly basis. We we take our teams and we go to this exercise really trying to understand. What is it we're trying to do with this team? Do we think the biggest opportunities are then we crystallize into a narrative? So we say it's not just sort of like a stack rank list of features. But were we try to say well if we're successful with a protected features for example than the world? Looks like this people uses for these kinds of things in these kinds of people now can be successful in someone and then we try to connect that to sort of business story so we say if this happens then more people will blanco whatever so. That's sort of the formal part. And you know we get the entire company involved We get input from the sales team and support and we have to the product teams including engineering design and marketing and research. They all sort of get together and participate in this process that sort of the formal sort of structure. But I would say the informal part is at the end of the day. You have to guess as to to build right. What's going to have the biggest impact and not only did to guess what the bill you have to guess how much effort we put in trying to do something you here and so for certain features. You really just don't want to spend any time trying to do something like you know people say. Hey you know it really bugs me that you know the permissions on prototypes are like this. Since I can't share them this way or whatever it is you just sort of understand the thing as fast as possible and just build it right and then there's other things like we released this feature called Smart Selection about a year ago and the idea of smart selection. Is that when you're doing a design a lot of times you'll find that objects are placed in a regular pattern so you'll have things that are ten pixels apart and a human being can look at that and say well that obviously is a list of things that are ten pixels apart and I would love to sort of you know be able to sort of squish them together or reorder them or whatever and you know why. Can't computers know that those objects are in a list and give you the power to be able to do that and so that was more out there idea and so that took a little while to figure out? How do we do this in a way? That feels natural at that Doesn't require you to specify upfront. Hey the stuff inside this boxes a list or whatever you know but we thought the investment was worth it because it just a pattern that we see a lot of people's working. We thought that if we could make the tool smart enough to be able to help you with that that it would really resonate and so we did that. I love the features. A customers seem to feature to. And that's the kind of thing where you just have to have this gut for this feels like something that's worth investing in even even when we didn't exactly know what the solution is going to be. My next question was just kind of glowing. It's know the the products from the on boarding expect from someone. Who's not a designer? I have account because we make much products and it's nice to be able to see them in process. It's it's just such a cohesive product that allows for so much customization and you can do so much like. It's such a multi functional tool I have. I have two questions. Why one is how you maintain the thing as as so cohesive and still so focused and still directed at such a specific audience when it allows for so much to do. There's so many features on but still feels cohesive and then I guess another question is what's been a really surprising use case apart from the boo pink or the the the wiggling of the curse has has anything come out like an a customer story or in a team internally that people are just like randomly using for something that was a total unintentional consequence like every company You know when you're in the company and you see the sausage be made. It doesn't look quite so cohesive like we look at the product and we're like Oh man. I can't believe we did this in this thing. That's totally not the same as this so but I I appreciate that you know you know we got enough right. That feels feels okay. It's really interesting working on a product that is broad fecta most of the products that our customers design that our customers used four. Tend to be ones where? There's a more narrow path that they expect us to go down right so you might have a mobile APP. And there's like three or four or five things you want people to be able to do and you just ran. The whole goal is to make it is obvious and efficient as possible for them to do those five things and within my. It's a little bit the opposite where there's like two hundred features and you just never know like one day. Sony might come into the tool and they us you know feature one feature thirty five and sixty eight or whatever and they all have to sort of work together as you as you point out and so it's really it can be a little challenging to figure this out and so I think what we try to do. Is We try to break things down into as atomic Pieces as possible that means and we try to figure out how how we can sort of make principles for those things that allow us to think about it. So as an example. I'll give two examples. So there's a components and styles are two features that has that allow for us and components are objects that you draw that you you duplicate. And then when you change the master the duplicates will also change so the classic uses for this would be things like you create a button and then used you know everybody in the companies that button if later you change something about the like James Quarter Radius Then everybody will see the corner radius. Change and another similar features styles in styles are properties that you apply to object so for example it can like a textile like a heading style or body style but styles can also be used for things like colors and things like that so for both of these features. You know there's some principles that we came up with for how they work that are just pretty deep and fundamental to how we think about them and how we write the code for them so for components you know it's things like components can have other components inside them and any property component can be overridden by somebody who's using that component Except for a few that we think are dangerous or we're going to be confusing etcetera and then for styles we had sort of a different way of thinking about it which is like components are like one thing you know. There's there's not like five different kinds of components for button components versus dialog box components or whatever right so components or just one mechanism whereas for styles we decided to break it up into lots of small different styles so you can have a color style or you can have a textile where you can have a like an effect style and the reason we did that was because we looked at how people were using were using styles in the wild and what they would do is they would have to take these combinations of styles make a separate style for each combination so for example for texting. They might say. Here's my style for a headline that's to the left. And here's my style headline that's to the right and here's myself headline that center and by the way here's my style for the headline the left but is green. And here's my style for the headline you know and if you take the combination of those things you end up with like literally would have two hundred three hundred textiles to manage all the combinations of them and so you know looking at that. We decided to break up into smaller things. And then there's this question of well if you don't have any rules for how you're going to break it up than it's sort of like wild west and how are you going to make this work over number so we came up with rules for how to break it up and you know. I could get into that but but the point is that we looked at how people are using it. We came up with principles for how we wanted to construct the feature. And then you know those principles I think help us figure out how to put those features together into something that people can then plugging and play around with in different ways and and have the whole system. Still make sense that make sense to me. I see like a big spreadsheet with with Just way more than two vectors like a third dimension a fourth dimension of categories of things. Well that's really cool and then my other question was what what's weird thing. People are using for that. You just had no idea. That's what that's what they do right right well first of all like like. I'm just so thankful that people are using DNA at the rate that they're using it. You know because you know. I'm sure you've had a lot of people on your podcast. We have people in your friends network and you know no matter how good your ideas. No matter how good your execution is you know you can make something and instill a crapshoot as whether people will resonate with that thing and find it interesting right so so we built this thing and people are using it for all sorts of things which. I still pinch myself that like so many people are using it but but in terms of the what they use it for. It is kind of what we expected them to use. A for for the most part except for some of these more out there use cases so people use it to design applications right and then people use the visually communicate. More broadly so they'll use a for diagramming or they'll use it for slides and someone and that's a use case where I think we haven't spent as much time really optimizing or making making better but But it's still something that sort of in the in the general area of stuff that we think people should use it very. There's a lot of tools for that and a lot of people have tried to our point Keno Often offend where it starts. Getting unusual. I think is in some of the more esoteric kinds of use cases rate. And you know we. We talked about in these covid times like people anymore connection and so people will do things like you pricing this but the somebody created a a model of San Francisco and people are starting to buildings in there and say hey this where I am and so on and so now. People are sort of collaborating in ways that bring a little bit of finding joy a playfulness to their lives. Y'All just a little bit of that in sort of the brainstorming kind of use case where you start with people just sort of moving sticking notes around but eventually than he ended up with sort of more playful ways of interacting with each other in that space. Because it's sort of a more free form kind of activity committed you know. You're turning kneel down the designed for something so you know I. I do think I mentioned this before about the immediacy or sort of the physicality of people being in the same place and I think that is for me. Probably the biggest kind of surprised his. I thought literally when we when we did the multiplayer feature. We did it because we felt like we had to because it was the only way that you could make sure that has people were looking at the documents that they wouldn't be two different versions of the document so it was really more about the integrity of the information. Churn but I think what we found is. People are actually connecting with each other because of that feature in a way that I didn't expect right just like hanging out and figure something really cool And maybe to touch on that the you know just the raw number of people using this product and of course not asking to disclose that but congrats on raising another round and other cash infusion somewhat recently in a time where you know it's difficult for a lot of products are a lot of startups to do that. What's next for the company? Is that a on on the path to public kind of thing or is this just another infusion to add features and add users and just to keep it going you know I? I don't think I get into that but The way that I think about it is Well I'll start personal but then we'll we'll go to the company in a second so the way I think about work is I kind of don't want work on something Unless it's going to be personally fun or rewarding remains you know. I've actually have turned out jobs that would have been more like bigger titles more lucrative or whatever in order to work on things that I personally gravitate towards and the company's full of people like that so we're all at big because we like working on this thing and if what's really nice is sometimes you find the thing you want to work on. But you don't find that market. We don't find them. You know the revenue or whatever like I was at medium before means great priority. Yeah grades a company but it's a really tough space it's hard money in publishing rate so so with FIG might like. I feel like we've got this like magic. Communists company a full of people who love work on this thing and it happens to be doing pretty well in the market. And so you know we're GONNA keep that going. You know as long as we can and you know the the good news is is I think there's plenty of headroom in just the product that we have now in that if you look at what people in the broader world outside of Silicon Valley and so on are using design you know people are still using all sorts of things. People are still using photoshop to design websites for example. So there's just a lot of headroom there for us to just keep doing what we're doing and grow as a business and then there's a bunch of Jason things that we'd like to explore at some point and so you know who's to say exactly which direction and went but but I feel like there's a lot of different ways we awesome. Can you and just to close. Can you share anything about any new features? That are coming out and figure can can. Et's one of the biggest Requests Right now is we have a called auto way out which is It's sort of like having a flex box inside of your design and for those listeners. Who Know what fuck boxes and we. Purposefully Limited the set of properties that that thing could have because we didn't WANNA make too complex but I think what we're finding is that it's not quite enough for people to be able to lands. They want to be able to do so. We're adding a more flexibility there and then in doing that. We're really trying to make sure that we're rethinking how that works in such a way that it doesn't get overly complex and so you know we've actually done like three or four or five different iterations of this you. I now to try to get right. That's a that's one. I'm pretty excited about and then we also are working on something around states And with states you know. Were also doing this thing where we're really trying to rethink like wider people. Really want this. And what can we do with it? And how how can we make? It really fit in with men. So were maybe taking a little bit more time with that one then Then we might if we're just doing it in more straightforward way. But but we're trying to. We're trying to make it really flexible and really feel like the core really cool. We'll show that's all I have. Thanks thanks so much for coming on the show. We we really appreciate it.

It's incredible there's no one else. No one in podcasting space that has had a sponsor for fifteen plus years the same sponsor for the same. So it's a testament to all of you picked up the promo codes hosting accounts. Use the discount codes renewed year after year. All those things the go into building the performance so that go daddy continues to sponsor the show. Yes i still have to put new butts in the seats every month but as long as we have new audience members coming in. We're able to meet that goal and you help me by promoting the show to your friends family members and people that you know it really. Is that simple. Now if you're watching yes of all nights for the stream to die. It's perfect for for months and months on end and tonight it died. So yes i'm going to have to edit after edit the show but anyway long story short thank you to go daddy for being a longtime sponsor here for taking care of the show and It's it's really truly An incredible incredible that they've been here this many many years and So thanks to them so insane. Absolutely insane that the show drops out the one night the most important night of this show. You know what it is. It's absolute karma it's absolutely karma that the that the show would go down absolutely so let me double check. Make sure all her friends can get back in here. Oh my god unbelievable. All right we send it back to public. Yes it was a conspiracy. It gets all right so the shug on and were reset will. Hopefully we'll stay online insane. Insane all right in. We're not even hitting hitting the numbers so let me start off by first of all and furthermost The student designed by automate dot com. Thank you so much. And of course we've talked about in the last show if he become an insider. You're going to be part of our new private podcast. And we've actually had a number of folks already sign up as insiders in anticipation of that and we'll get that started here and then in the next couple of weeks We'll talk about this future. Shows won't do want to spend too much on that tonight but more than anything This past few days of with With the plug. It's guys from tech. Podcast we've been doing some cs coverage have done about five or six hours of that this week and So anyway i. I really wanted to say thank you to all of you to all of you. That have long. Listen to this show. There are people that are listening to the show via podcast right. now that been here seven single digits. There are people that have listened to this show for a couple of years went away come back listen for a couple of years went away come back so e some of you are like on your fifth time listening to the show. Having been away a two or three times this is this is what happens when you have a show that is sixteen years old and of course kirk and blogging team in. Oh my goodness thank you. So much kirk is like brother from another mother him and i are in sync. When kirk took over the job of doing the the show. Prep he really got me about an hour to an hour and a half of my life back every monday and thursday night so big. Thanks to kirk and of course. A blogging team. And you know we we pay these people this these team members so it isn't it isn't like they're doing this for free so again. The sponsorships and the insider donations are all what feels thing. And of course you know. The show was in hawaii four. Oh what is what is the number here fourteen and a half years. I moved it here to To to michigan but shoko and the kids and all those years in me doing shows that i have to give credit where credit's due in that ways i'm here solo obviously now and There's even news on that front. That's going on but that's for another time but what i wanna do tonight is is really a several things and i wanna start off and those of us are watching live. You're kind of in for treat and again if you're listening to the show. Just listen to this. I set a dialogue. As i wanna show you some stuff that you may not have seen before and i. I went to the way back machine today and the way back machine. If you don't know what is this part of the internet archive and they capture images from websites long ago and the first image. I showed tonight during the show was what the website looked back in two thousand and two before it was a blogger and the earliest capture. I found on the internet archive from when i started doing. The show was actually. You can see it right here. If you're watching close. This is october thirteenth. Two thousand four geek news central podcast ten twelve. Oh four episode number two. Do you know what. I played on that episode. Acdc back in black is the interim inter music. That's why that's that podcast episode doesn't exist anymore but this is this is what the website looked back. Then you know when we start the show. Those of you've been here you know it is the weirdest single weirdest design. The probably was ever done for the show ever this. The sites always been a little quirky. It's got that green on green scott. The gee. I can't even remember who did this. I design i paid for. It can't remember how much i paid for it. I didn't pay too much but you know that's right there about the time. The show launched in this was on movable type and then if we move forward a little bit this is going up to two thousand and seven and there's some graphics that looks like it's missing here but this is when i was a three column and this ran for a long time i believe i was still running and movable type at this time i don't think i had switched to wordpress yet and boy just probably brings back some memories for all of you. That had been here. And here's a weird thing is. This is from december eleventh. Two thousand seven. And i was. I was already complaining about the rfid blazed. Are i aa or dirty snakes so little more critical in my in my In my logging. And of course. At that time i was still active duty with With uncle sam. A matter of fact gist just getting ready to retire. Then this is the website as of around december actually in. What's weird is an actually hasn't switched on your screen yet for those of you watching. This was the post. I made november. Twenty seven th two thousand ten. When my when my Cousin's kids came missing and are still missing and This is right after thanksgiving but this is that you can see. We're getting ready for cs. The this is definitely when. We're on wordpress now. But i talked about andrew alexander and tanner and i know many of you over. The years have touched out and reached out to me about that. When when you find out that these These relatives of mine and So it it was just ironic. That i hit this particular page i was just reloading random stuff in. I wasn't even trying. And they just got that page and then if we move forward a little bit. This is a two thousand fifteen and again. The website you know looks a little different and around that time is when i made the switch chief. I've got it. That's the current site designed today and dat site design is actually running on Our plugging that we provide all our podcasters blueberry dot com. So i use my own templates. I use my own. You know obviously were hosted at blueberry. But i think one thing that i've never done on this. Show ever weirdness across the bag and who knows maybe being attacked so anyways. I walked through the websites. I've never shown you guys what we have done in the In the actual podcasting space. You know you hear me. Talk about blueberry and the stuff that i do there but you know really what it started off was is when we built the tech podcast network and the tech podcast network is still alive today with a number shows. It's it's not as close a relationship as we've had in the past but it's still there. It's something that we do. But you know the one of the things that i launched in early days of podcasting was the podcast awards and the podcast awards. Today is is an ongoing. You know ongoing event. That i do again. If you're if you're watching live dot geek. New central dot com is a great place to go to make sure that you see the show all right so anyway. How are all over there. You guys already moved. You know what's a chance of this happening on the fifteen hundred episode. And now i'm going to have to edit the sancta death may man won't add it. Maybe we'll just let it go in. It's glory so Anyway long story short here. Is you know we'd built a podcast awards and then you know after the go daddy. Sponsorship came and then. I had this idea about building a business. We launched Raviolis raw voices the company. I started in podcasting and The first site we had was called podcast or news and it was kind of it was designed to be like this short news takes around the country and really never worked out but we converted podcast or news into an actual podcasting website. And today it's actively being a written about what's going on news in the podcasting world but really everything that was born from everything from this podcast and the ideas i had and with my team from raw voice we came up with Are are hosting company called blueberry and it actually started out as a service company where he resold advertising and it hosting and blueberry dot com really ended up being. You know what we've built and really rallied around since since two thousand and six and the total product line over there is is really incredible and what we a bill. And i don't think many of have somebody podcasters know this but let me just kind of walk you through some of the stuff that we have done over this entire time again against my team and you know we built this together. It wasn't just a single person's initiative but we launch podcast hosting we have podcast statistics and of course the pages loading a little slow here for some reason and wait for that to update The podcast district platform was really a i. That was the first product that we came up with the power press plug in. Its which is used today of by about eighty five thousand. Active podcasters is for people to have a wordpress site. And then and just a host of other stuff We have a dynamic advertising insertion so if someone needs a platform to be able to dynamically serve ads into their podcast we can. We've got a new product. We launched last year called private internal podcasting. It's for people that need to do private podcast. That don't want him to be public as kind of a thing right now and then we have these podcast network tools that we built in. It's basically network building to on. What powers tech podcasts. If i click on geek news central here on the screen and that page loads then what you have. And of course. It's loading slowly so give the computer second. The graphics on the screen is second to catch up. There goes so it. Basically has the ability for us to showcase shows on another website. So that's one of the things that that we built in reason on the page Loading slow is purely on my side of the screen. Capture system is not switching as quick as it should and then of course we. We introduced what was called. Podcast mirror helps podcasters Keep their their performance on their. Rss feed so that if you're on a cheap hosting plan your little overloaded on traffic that's a a site that gives them the tools to do that One of the things that we bought a number of years ago as site called cast feed valid eater and it allows podcasters to validate the assess feed and again. It's just another tool that. My team made one of the most influential systems that we put on. The market was called describe android before you could have google podcasts. And before there was an easy way to subscribe to podcast on android we'd put this online and made it the ability to easily again one. Click subscribe to a podcast on android. So just goes on and on the stuff that we didn't. You know one of the things i didn't think would ever work but turned out worked real well subscribed by email hundreds of thousands of people a day. Get an email to their inbox says. Hey there's a new episodes of podcasts launched and you know it's just little things like that that my team has done over the years and really. The entire savor of the company was based around this plug in when we pivoted and built this. I talked about it earlier but the transition from collecting advertising dollars to become a service company fully centered around that plug in many of you have been around the years and maybe no some of this. But that's what my team does at blueberry on a day-to-day basis and again. Probably go back in the way back machine and look at blueberry before and would probably cringe a little bit but that's our current design of the website and It's you know it's our final for getting people into use our products and services. I didn't want to spend a lotta time on that tonight But he didn't think it was important to to walk back and really kinda talk and give me some quick facts and figures I do this. Every hundred episodes is near as i can figure there's been about seventy two hundred hours of production publishing of this show about nineteen hundred hours of content and definitely over two hundred million downloads over fifteen years Those of you that are new to the show some history again. this show started act. I believe october. Ninth two thousand in four definitely start in waco texas after. I'd gotten hurt in a swimming pool accident in june of that same year Started to show with a lab tech head elect mike from walmart and really it It evolved from from. That point took the show back to hawaii and started there and there's whole series of stories about that but did the show for months fourteen and a half years and wife a majority of it from historic ford island then moved to the house and maka kilo overlooking honolulu and then a year and a half ago. Moving back to michigan Some milestones a entered into the podcast hall of fame in two thousand fifteen and the first one of the first groups Or talked about launching tech podcast network and go daddy and we didn't talk about citric. Sixers was another company. Citrus gotomeeting sponsored. The show for years and You know i think about it. And we've tried to calculate haven't come up with the exact number but you know we would go to these events like any b and c. Yes we'd go as a team. So typically each timber team member would get thirty to forty interviews Per show and we've done that every year except for this year. And of course i did it. Did it live this sharing. So i guess we did do. Cbs this year. So if you really add that up over fifteen years that's probably another six hundred interview interviews that i did with a team effort like thirty two hundred interviews from ceus. On top of the two hundred twenty five episodes at podcast insider in the hundred. I've been involved with than the new media. Show which robin i have done together. Which is at four hundred twenty five episodes. We racked up some time behind the mic. Or i have so those of you know. There's been listening to watch the show for while i grew up in here in the quincy cold. Water area My grandfather was a cash crop farmer. My dad was a contractor and later on a produce broker Really when i was growing up it was There was always something to do. But i was heavily involved in four h and ffa. I went to vo tech school and high school. Got a background tron. Ix for two years Joined the navy and In nineteen eighty three and he went on to be my own boss. And i always say that with a chuckle because no when you join the navy or not your own boss As lucky enough to fate was sealed to be able to become an air crewman and Flew entire time. While i was in the navy until i got hurt in two thousand four when i was grounded permanently and had an amazing career. Amazing an amazing job that entire time but during that period from eighty eight to ninety one. I iran ables and system out of california I was in guam from ninety one to ninety four. Ran the bbs there. And this is all the time you know having an active duty and running. B b s and moved to maryland and had the head the bbs in a closet in isp. So lots of stuff but then in ninety seven after my second son was born moved to hawaii. The bbs continued all the way up to go to when i pulled the plug and then started the blog and does of you've been around while no wasn't great blogger and then from there straightforward in two thousand four when the podcast launched so that just kind of gives you an idea but you know more granular stuff for this show is In december of two thousand four. I got the book deal. So i wrote the first book on podcasting announced that in may of two thousand five. And there's a whole story about that. We launched tech podcast network in december of two thousand and four again june go. Daddy became a sponsor we launch rav waste mid mid summer of two thousand five. I got the podcast awards. Going in two thousand six ten my first cis. We did audio. Only at that event quickly realized we needed to have video And then a monumental event happened those of you that were round in two thousand six and matter of fact it was on a show just like this or prior to a show like this. It was episode. Two hundred is when. I got the word that my dad died and We put off doing the show. Obviously because we're packing to go home and I came back to honolulu ten days later. And it's when. I truly found out that this family of listeners that listen to this podcast truly cared about this host. Because there was over five thousand emails of condolence and it wasn't a time where we had internet. You know there was dial up and much of the country still da- point and I was pretty overwhelmed by that. Response my mom. And i launched a podcast called sherry cast and it was my six or twenty seven episodes about that whole ordeal of my dad. Dying and then in two thousand seven retired from the navy But you know there are some things it are interesting around show five hundred and i think it's high five hundreds. I started playing with video on this show. After that point really for five years it was. It was audio only and And then came to the rest the history already no but It's been one hell of a ride. Dig it to fifteen hundred episodes with all of you has been truly incredible. Truly humbling Is not that. Many of you are not able to watch on facebook tonight. But i've seen most of moved over to to youtube. So i appreciate that and those who you're watching on youtube thank you so much But really many of you. Ben here from the get go and I thank you for that For your for your ongoing support of the show and really the thousands of emails that have come in over the years he has. Sal you know the emails we had with him in the early years you know the ones that really twisted my chain a little bit of the folks i remember and of course all the people of supported the show and got a whole host of folks that have walked the halls of cis contribute contributed. I've had two generations of listeners. Do thanks for this show. i've had You fathers and sons. And i've had you know people fly on their own dime to come out and stay in vegas and and pay for their hotel room and you know and help the show. Do things like that You it's those folks are. I'm forever grateful because this show in not have been able to bend accomplished with without the fans and without the family of listeners of this podcast. And i think that That whole you know everything that goes around. That conversation is is really a big part of why i continue to do the show. I still have fun. I've told you guys like episode ten. When when i quit having fun the i'm gonna i'll just stop but that's not the case i'm still having fun Still have sponsor still have folks supporting. The show is insiders. It's it's really really incredible. And i know that we use miss some of the beginning of the show today because the stream is acting up. Gives you a chance to listen to what you missed by. Listened to the podcast. That's a good thing because the recorder you know. Here's a funny thing this week this morning. Guys from plug hits. The a kirk was having trouble with his computer. I was having trouble with a mac. It's been a day my son. Chris is messing me like crazy right now. I don't know if you can hear that and things have just. It's been a day of like weirdness with computers so i am not surprised. We had to trouble the beginning of the show with facebook dropping out. I am not at all surprised. Whatever's going on. It's something in the air today and it happened all day with weird quirks so it wouldn't be fifteen her show without just madness right now. Oh and i gotta show you something you see that back there. Those you're watching. Let me let me move the mic. So thank you so much for superfan. That sent me a plant so i i guess i'll see if i can keep this thing alive but has had a congratulatory note and balloons. Obviously i think it's a fern. I'm not a plant guy. So i don't know you know i. I do have a little bit of a green thumb but We'll see if. I can keep that from dying so First time i've ever gotten a plant so it'll be something that'll hang out here. Maybe next year sixteen hundred. I'll still be here.

That's interesting some looking through the channels here. Yeah yeah youtube. Is i think what it was is it. I gotta mentioned today in a big newsletter over it Pod news about this episode.

We've come a long way all of you ben. Along for the ride you've seen the quirks in terms of this show so nothing should surprise you at this point it me.

Probably the one percent is the one that kills you but it goes on here in this article to talk about all that much technology and all the healthcare folks that we're talking to during our live interviews today were all on board in Discussing the All the different things that they were doing and how they were being effective in helping with the pandemic it was interesting to hear Those all those spins Moving on amazon ring. Neighbors knife familiar with this. I'm not familiar with the specific apple. Amazon ring neighbors app have exposed user's precise locations in home addresses if you have a ring device at your house in your part of their neighbors app. Were you share information. Apparently it's every post someone makes with that App has been putting their location date and all kinds of stuff in there Home address and everything so they've got a little bit of a problem there It wasn't visible this. Be seen but it was behind all the major data. So they're they're going to work to fix on that now. This is the second time that neighbors abbas had a bug so looks like The owner there. We know who that is should put in some extra time to shore that up a little bit and yeah amazon. Shore that app up. Make it a little bit less bugging leaking information. Nasa says twenty twenty twenty sixteen for the warmest year on record. Now we were all locked down. Pollution was down across the country. I've seen youtube videos of In india where the sky was absolutely clear. When it's normally when all the traffic's moving in delhi and those other places just nothing but a small you know there was the cleanest air a we've ever seen but yet yet yet yet. Say it's the highest said that the an australian wildfires had a significant effect The also said the pandemic caused this. Hawaii would the pandemic causes because the skies were clear. Not blocking the sun is at the case. so anyway Twenty twenty tied two thousand sixteen. According to nasa youtube is doubling down on its efforts to make credible health content more accessible. They've got a partnership in wants to make public health with they're saying truly public The team will be led by dr garth. Graham who's previous chief community health officer. Cvs health the new team is working. I make an easier for users. If i medical information from trusted organizations in clinics and healthcare google will find you. Any health related Treatment or you. can you know. Doctors hate google because you can predict your ailment. Almost course doctors always says you get it wrong but at least people trying to figure out about what's going on with their health versus being kenny about it you know i think any information is is better than no information special. It makes you go to your doctor and say hey. I got a problem but then again it might prevent someone from going to the doctor. Atv now closes down and merges with. At and t. tv this confusing already. The skinny bundle serve eighteen. T. tv now they pull the plug. It's merged so eighteen t trying to clean up house in In a really people as well what what was that. I don't even know T. now began in two thousand sixteen as direct. Tv and So now it's all joined together so If you're on that service you probably have known about that already so many of us have not been driving that much although my car reasons got twenty six thousand miles on it already. I'm kinda shocked. I got a notice from ford. Said your high mileage driver. And i'm like how is that possible but i am but car. Sales are expected to ramp up significantly. Twenty twenty one following all this downtime. So my opinion is if you've met up driving very much in twenty twenty. Why would you trade your car in next year. Are this year would you not. It's got less miles on it right less activity. It's it'll last another year but they feel there's going to be a surge and people going out and buying cars as we return to normal. Cbs was full of cool stuff. And one of the things that always just have a passing interest in is projectors. I don't know why. I don't use projectors very often presentations that can stop but lg launched a laser powered four k hdr projector. It's a ultra-right bright home theater. Projector the costs. Three grand so It's one of those projectors that will basically really work as a hope feeder. Andy mallon ceiling. You can set up your own. Entertainment room That's always been kind of a cool thing is people that have these big entertainment rooms where they have a couch and multiple couches places to put drinks in a little bar. All that's very very cool. My sister's baseman has kind of that lay out a little bit and It's it's really fun when you're hanging out with a group watching a movie or whatever Bet depends on if you meet either five screener projection in the can't go wrong with either so That lincoln be up in the show notes for those with the budget and for those eve their hacking out. There you can act together you own. E paper smartwatch. There's a fifty dollar source kit. It's adrenal powered risk computer so this to me. Sounds like a cool project That really any family member could do and you. Maybe this'll be a teenager. That would want to put this together. And if you've ever wanted to be like steve wozniak and have your own custom made geeky watch square foot square oath fumi s. q. u. a. r. o. f. u. m. i may be the product for you and It's cheap it's it's It's forty five dollars as of this posting and I don't know how much work you have to put this together. I wouldn't imagine too much. Looks pretty modular. Yeah so here's a picture of it so you are going to have to do a little bit of work but they give you a bread board. It's opened up and a kitten instructions and should be a lot of fun for someone to put one of these together and it looks. I mean really really nerdy. I mean if you know if you wanna be the geek kid remember geek. Kids are in. Now right geek. Kids ones are making all the money after they graduate college so Don't be afraid to embrace your geek. Them and it looks like a new time of cut next wifi bluetooth has o'clock tells temperature and your step counts so Lease on the screen. That i'm seeing here on the news article. If you have a pixel for eight or five g you may have had some Screen issues. Google is working on a fix for those touchscreen. Whoa some users started reporting trouble. After downloading december security update not being able to tap certain parts of the screen and seeing some lines on it. So don't worry that's coming. And i you're You're going to be good reading. The jarido probably going back and forth. The columbus really really racked up the miles Was three hundred each way. Three hundred and twenty each way. And then i was doing Or me wasn't three twenty about about to. I don't remember two hundred forty or something like that and then All the traveling around down in columbus and then back and every two weeks back for the it added up the miles for sure all right moving on here philips hue launches a long-awaited light switch module and more now how many have bought some of those philips hue lights new they turn on the switch and you can connect via rear wifi can change the color you can change the brightness. You can program it and do all these cool things right. It's really they're really slick until someone turns off the light switch then all these cool things you've done is really worthless. well feels. He was recognized.

Light and So that people can't click it no more. It's still controlled by your smartphone but This which model solves the problem of people switching off the switch and it's powered by battery that will have at least a five year lifespan. And why they just didn't wired into the sock it to be honest with you. But the hugh switch module cost between a thirty nine or sixty nine depend on sixty nine for two pack and it goes a launch in europe. This summer followed by north america Later this year so keep an eye on that so you've used philips hue mamie many haven't maybe bought some market stuff but You know just like protect the kids from turning some light. Switches off turning power off to my gear when i was in on the lulu ours. Now it's the cats that are bothering me. Aces announced two new dual display laptops. This is kinda unique. And i'm kind of dubious to this but those of you watching. There's a big screen and then a half screen so it's kind of interesting. It's an extra monitor tatsuo. Desktop workstation can make you more efficient but laptops needy be portable. These laptops will start at about a thousand bucks when they began shipping and This is in the dual line again. A dual monitor on on the bottom of the laptop. The edges up a little bit and then irregular screen. So i don't know. I don't know who uses these. Maybe artistic they show someone doing some touch up work on a on a on an image in the in the product Shot so maybe that is the The use model for that samsung well. They'd made a bunch of announcements today. course they announced the twenty one line of phones notebooks and they're also making bluetooth ultra wideband tracking tags. So many you had tracking tags in the past and You know those are really really handy. I've got a couple of myself from different manufacturers but this is by samsung and attach it to a bag or touch it to your phone or ticket to your keys. And it's kind of like a tile like dongle in familiar with tile trackers it similar it's got a bluetooth locator as well and But if you buy twenty one they're going to give you. One of the tracker tags for free was as supplies last. They run out from the free windsor about thirty bucks a shot and of course new earbuds out. How only to article that later. Apple is This is kinda rare. An update recently in big sur. Actually when when big sur shipped in november the firewall system the work done all non apple apps but allowed all apple apps to bypass the firewall. So apple has issued an update. That now allows you to firewall. The fifty six apple apps that were allowed to have basically god status and You can you can exclude that traffic In some of the settings. I know a lot of people. Don't pay attention to any of that but a lot of people that are in specific jobs have to basically shut down certain type of traffic and now with this update. That's possible again. But this point. Those apps been free to really connect to the internet not necessarily providing a security situation but definitely using your bandwidth. Maybe didn't think it was going to many folks are using whatsapp. Whatsapp is facing a legal. Challenge over privacy in its biggest market. That market is india so basically through an alert. What's abbas users. A recent days to greet some new terms and conditions grants the aptly consent to share the face with facebook some personal data about them such as their phone number and location users laughed agree to these terms by february eight. That they don't if they wish to continue using the app the changes been mischaracterized by many as a personal communication being compromised. What which what. Which is what. What's app clarified. This week was not the case but at the same time there's a petition now. In india alleges that the new terms that whatsapp requires of its roughly four hundred and fifty million users in the country is a violation of their fundamental rights of privacy and poses a threat to national security Did you hear that also. Did you hear that. France and some other countries are setting up legislation. Now to to prevent an outlaw the ability of social media companies to censor and deep voice people. That's going through in outside the united states. You think we'd be leading that. But no that's going to be led by france by australia and some other countries make sure they go home doesn't it the n. h. t. s. a national thought. That's the who is nhtsa guests. That's the national highway. Transportation administration wants tested. Recall hundred eight thousand tegra. Three equipped vehicles that would include the model s. and model x. e. built prior to two thousand eighteen. Apparently those monitors inside the tussles have memory chip and eight gig memory chip that apparently wears out and when it does the monitor goes out and what that prevents you from having. His is the Reverse camera and able to defrost your windows so They're asking tesla to do a voluntary recall on those. Replace them We'll see what tesla has to say and maybe nhtsa will get more tough with them because the initial nhtsa is not satisfied by the strategy and has told tesla urging company institute the recall. And so if you own a tesla those models be aware that there's an issue there with that monitor. Pay pow has picked up a number of Payment firms throughout the world and people holdings inc became the first foreign. I'll check this out. I wonder how long this will. Last has become the first foreign operator with one hundred percent grow control payment of a payment platform in china. According to chinese government data. The us fintech giant is a bigger foothold in a booming market friendly payments people. Quiet a thirty percent stake in the company called go pay china and digital thirty percent stake which la them now to be one hundred percent control of the company and i guess this is pretty rare that a foreign company owns one hundred percent stake in a chinese company are chinese probably can just take it away right Talked about little earlier but the galaxy Smart tag twenty nine ninety nine the tile competitor so if you just want to look at the tiles and get information on that again it's be able to find stuff that you've lost hopefully within your home or your car or your you know in the crack of your couch. That's where my stuff always ends up is seems like put stuff on a chair and they sit down and ends up down in cracking the couch. Samsung also has a new. Ai powered vacuuming laundry cleaning products at ceus so Our gen thorpe gaetan central. Did the right up on this. So the jetboat ninety eight. I plus the world's first smart robotic vacuum powered by intel. Ai gives you florida. Amazing clean with minimal effort. My roommate keeps getting loss. Keeps getting stuck I moved it to a new position. And it's having a hard time recovering even though i reset it. The samsung galaxy buds. Proser out. now for two hundred bucks. So if you're a big fan samsung and you need some new earbuds in. Want to spend a lot of money two hundred dollars available to day and of course we already talked about the s twenty one so if you buy samsung galaxy. S twenty one. It will not come with a charger. You'll have to spend twenty extra dollars. They're following apple's lead on that smaller packaging smaller packaging smaller packaging in the chargers. Just takes up too much room. That's what this is really about. They wanted ship more units and save a little money and on their margin and make you spend a little more buying something now. My brother-in-law i think he's going to need. This is called a new. It's a it's a pool cleaning robot it's called ariel ariel by solar reasons as evolution of pull robots to come out of the ten base pivot silver breeze and made a debut at sea as twenty twenty one and basically the same charges itself and it travels the pool surface to collect debris doesn't it's not a bottom feeder it does the top and If you want something that's gonna crawl around the bottom of your pool. That's that's a whole different situation here but Anyway the filter collect stuff of the two hundred microns in size are yet down to two hundred microns size and scattered debris chamber super removal from pool with no slip panel Easy to empty and refill and again it's it's it recharges by the sun so you probably just leave this thing in the swimming pool. Now if you're bmw driver and you're going to go by the i x. Yes the bmw all electric i. Ix will be. The first support was called a digital key plus feature. So let's say you have your your mobile phone in your purse and your walk into your car and you get to the door. Your door will unlock. You won't have to do anything with your phone. Your phone allow your car to start. You still have a key of course but all you're going to need to have really is your phone to operate your vehicle. This'll be a first. Where your mobile phone is basically an ambulance with the i hate carrying keys. I really do It gets to be a little bit to get used to Good that you have the key backup but you'll be able to unlock your phone with anything higher than iphone. Eleven so eleven iphone twelve. I don't know if it's works with. Any samsung products are not or any android products. But definitely the iphone will allow you onto unlock the bmw x. probably out of my price range. Samsung's is bringing smart thing dashboard to android auto. You be able to control your car with the smart things as well so a lot of announcements by smart by samsung today. They've also teamed up with google to to bring. This dashboard is such. You'll be able to control your smart home products from your car and So i have the right up in information in there. So was it saying the car you can turn your car on. What else activate the heater or air condition out so you can start and stop. The motor feature won't arrive until at least third quarter of twenty twenty one so be aware of that. So all kinds of cool stuff come into our phones so bitcoin. My goodness went to third d nine thousand dollars today. I was waiting for to drop. I said if it gets down to twenty five. I would buy but his back up to thirty nine k tonight. Jim nez launching a credit card with bitcoin. Rewards so cryptocurrency exchange company gemini has acquired block rise announcing his do product. Today this card this credit card works like a regular credit card but you earn. Bitcoin rewards space on purchases up to three percent in bitcoin. Now that could end up being think about that. You get a if you have. If let's say you use this. This card was available. Was down around three thousand. He made one hundred dollar purchase and he got three dollars worth of bitcoin. They bitcoin today would be worth if he bought it. That lower amount. You know thirty bucks right so Interesting this might get Some action by folks that are big into bitcoin. I know a guy that's tried to go one hundred percent bitcoin. He's working real hard ad. He doesn't wanna have green dollar bills anymore. He wants bitcoin. Lumia ta raises fourteen million dollars for service to prefer to predict healthcare outcomes. Now why do you need to predict care outcomes. You think about that. I go into the doctor. I've got an issue. They punch my information into the system and it comes out and says he has a ninety percent chance of dying in your doctors as sorry. I can't give you any medicine. Prescribed you anything. Because the computer says you're you're you're going to die. So that's how. I read that. When i just see that when it says predict healthcare outcomes so the company software cleans up healthcare data sets and analyze them to look for underwriting risk for insurance agencies and cost savings for healthcare payers and providers believing. This is a company that is not going to help us at all. They have great relationships with their with their insurance companies. Do business with them. This is one that I guess if They ever go public. Probably be a pretty good company to invest in. Because they're gonna screw you the any other way and finally tonight. Google now owns fitbit so that has closed the two point one billion purchase. A fitbit has closed and now it's completely wrapped up underneath that so anyway i actually did pretty good on time considering everything i threw all that introductory stuff even with the the mess of the stream going down insane absolutely insane tonight but I wanna thank everyone. Everyone for being here. Thank everyone for for shifting to To youtube to watch me on youtube and I do appreciate you all being out again. You know it's really a pretty incredible in a we go on. Money will come back. Fifteen o one. It'll be just like a regular show. That just seemed like is is we're marching towards. And when i say we you. And i the the family of listeners. is as we march towards fifteen hundred. Just like i had a few days off and then not thinking getting extended. But it's it's nice to be here and get over this hurdle very very very very very very very few shows have achieved fifteen hundred zero. There's a guy that has a horse network is names glen. He's you know he's way up like three thousand range but he does a daily show but folks had been podcasting since the beginning. There's only a few of us that really started in those early. Early days a podcasting. I can count them on really on one hand someone. The other day came in. So i started in september of. Oh four and i'm like who are you and Went back and use the internet archive. That's what gave me the idea to To show those screens tonight. Of course you know. Chaos ensued with facebook being down but It wasn't he was two thousand six. I went back and say the earliest record of you. Coming online is two thousand sakes. Oh oh yeah you know and i. I don't mind if he joined came into podcasting space. Two thousand four was one the slipped by me but There's just a again not that many of us that started in those early days and maybe were crazy and many of us is. I'm probably one of the few that has the original show as people have changed shows multiple times. So that's another in my opinion Real accomplishment but real accomplishment is at. You're still here. Listen to me to dribble on. But he definitely thank you for being here and being part of the family and Supporting me and Supporting the sponsor and again if you haven't heard the the insiders anyone who comes in with a two five ten fifteen twenty or twenty five dollars a month donation to the show. We're gonna have a new podcast or i'm going to have podcast called insider it's going to be a private podcast. It's going to be a personal podcast. It's going to be behind the scenes. Podcast in those that are insiders are going to get access to it and making no promise on because promises are bad when it comes to everything that i have going on so i'm say that i will do my best effort to put out a show on a regular basis. Maybe like once a month. The beaches a back behind the scenes Casual conversation about what's going on and with me and life and i'll share more stuff than a share on the show. So i think You'll get some enjoyment out of the out of the podcast And again a little more intimate time together so Become an insider today. Two bucks get you in. And i'll be sending everyone that isn't insider and the very near future and invite include a username and password the and allow you to get access to the show via a private for the the blueberry private podcasting up and i'm excited to be able to we're gonna put encryption.

I don't know they'll be tracked the code about like what the what could we offer a hardware coverage sense other than would you use this. Yes how long I'M GONNA say on this podcast. Anything goes well shit man so I got an email. We get emails. All the time. People going like we got fucking Bluetooth headphones you up to your ass. Thank you usually just like we don't have hardware okay all right well. I'll tape it but I n e mail for keyboard came in and I was like you know what I wanNA. Try this thing out. It's a CA- niece's gaming just put it out the free style edge R._G._B.. And it is a split keyboard with a big old like twenty inch braided cord between the two halves of the keyboard who I was like I was picturing the Microsoft actual economic pieces connected by cable and sounds kind of cyber cyber yeah and so you can set it pretty far apart almost like captain's chair like just hands in a natural this the idea I mean they're primarily in economics company but they have a few gaming devices and this is this is one of those <hes> and I started using it. I don't know three weeks ago or something like that and I really like it you can they. They've got an like an optional attachment for the bottom. That'll let you tent the sides of up to a more natural role kind of like fifteen degrees up and the so for folks listening like the inside edges of the keyboard would pop up so you your hands would naturally tilt I guess to the outside and type a little sideways which is a little more natural all and modeling a ball like my desk is too high for like actually got me thinking like me and my desk is to fucking high or my chairs to low one of the other so I didn't really use that too much just because the desk but it's actually pretty nice I'll tell you you you can fit a pizza box between the haves these keyboard they say things like you could put joystick or move your mouse or whatever I'm like a pizza box fit between them which can come in handy standard size pizza box medium pizza. Oh you know like twelve fourteen inch she ergonomic pizza. That's like half and half and you've just split the box down the middle so it's like to probably yeah you know you. You have to get something on the left side. That's you know going to be a little more movement movement oriented right yeah and then the right side just nothing my only keyword space that I have I could fit kells zone zone yeah. That's all that I could fit there. You're talking. I'm talking full medium mm-hmm. I literally tested this out of the weekend the dish it was a thick crust okay. It was a thick crust medium pizza from a non chain established a local chain. Let's say a non national chain anyway yeah. I haven't news next couple hundred bucks. which is you know? Maybe a little bit more expensive than some other keyboards out there by twenty thirty bucks something like that but I really like it this. I got used to the split stuff. It's like it's split six on the left. Side out of the keyboard. Seven is on the right like that's kind of where this is. It's in the middle. This image of the tented hands separated yeah for it feels like some kind of Star Trek like alias interfere exactly like it had kind of like when I had it. It's most split in my arms. Were relaxed have like a tactical just kind of typing title stuff and I yeah I was. I was pretty impressed with to the point where that's the the metric. I think that we as we talk about about this stuff like. Would you keep using this. I think I'm GONNA keep using this all right and it's it's been pretty nice. The only catch is like the whole hook with this. One is over their previous one is this one has R._G._B.. Lighting so they've got like an APP you can go change the lighting also stuff but it doesn't support any games that support keyboard lighting and light things specifically. I don't know if that's got razor exclusive A._p._i.. Or something but anyway it does not support that stuff so maybe they'll do it for you can update firmware are all that stuff so maybe they'll get there but that sort of thing is like man if I if the keyboards going to light up I want it to light up to the way game developers choose to make it light up because that's always like dumb and not just like pulse blue which is why they end up settling on actually maybe turnover lighting off 'cause who I'm not even looking at it who cares it's hard to look at when it's completely vertical that too well it's not completely vertical and you're not only up like you know I think fifteen degrees is the maximum not you're not like full on sideways typing on sale now. It's kind of up in the middle okay. How's the W A._S._T.? Pleading shooters on yeah and so that's kind of like the cool thing as a gaming thing is like you know a lot of games the right half of the keyboard. You're not doing shit with it so you just Kinda push it out of the way and move the mouse there no and kind of it's a little more natural in some cases so it's it doesn't have a keypad on it so it's like you know missing needs it yeah. That's kind of I need like so factor. Education was the the thing on your phone one hand and using one finger on the other and then it's like Oh wait. The seven is on decide. Yes it was like that that sort of thing was the only time when it was like this. If this had a keypad even on a standard keyboard and having to go back and forth the role I just I like the phone pad Aspen Punch it in blind. This movement to get rid of numeric keypad. I feel like is guided. It makes sense for gaming product. Okay I saw now. There are people saying the caps lock. He should go. What what is nonsense? Why why it's fine claim is that nobody uses it and it gets in the way that's just on the Zodiac motherfucker? There's an audience macaroni so so you know because it doesn't have a keep at it doesn't have scroll lock key which I use a handful of applications devoted to playing video games because that is a specific he used in things like maim and stuff like that so what are you can map macaroni and all that other stuff like a modern keyboard the for gaming you can map all kinds of macro and all that sort of stuff if you want. I didn't necessarily need that that function but I thought it was really nice to type on and good for games and I think it's got the whatever's mechanical switches the its way quieter than the other cherry switches I had in my previous keyboard. The were waking mme wife from three rooms away so hardware coverage there you go there. You go covered. It's the free style edge R._G._B.. From canisius gaming mouthful yeah it's have to have names like that just be called like yeah I mean if if anything I think this this can be edgier could be like the word murder. I don't know what you know because razors got all it's make free look and widow restyle edge freestyle separate seven twenty Benny Hana's absolutely what if you flip them around I mean you wanted to. I guess we know. Is that how he plays well you could you could say I'm going to look up upside down to gonNA find footage of him playing one so my desks in like a corner I'm imagining went up on my wall <hes> over here yeah yeah absolutely yeah. It'd be like in kind of a martial arts pose time. I'm dreaming. I feel good definitely paint the keyboard green tea and key it out so it's just looks like you're doing wizard most minority report yeah love this idea love. This plan play any good games on the keyboard controller what I've been playing some more bloodstained <hes> and enjoying it yeah. I just got past the train part. Oh Yeah I waited. I kinda took a week off often and forgot about it like I'm going to go back to it and and get back in there with that tree impart. I don't want to spoil it explicitly but did you know how to get on that train. Did you figure out what you needed to do pretty easily because I feel there was like three or four points in that game where specifically just was like legit cannot figure out what to do. You think I stumbled into the solution by mistake which was like you get to the train and it's like I can't take this because I don't have a thing that you think you could like. It's like Oh. It's item. That's GonNa let me do a thing but basically have to do something else with the item. That isn't necessarily that well. I had run over to where the photo station was back at the base like first thing I remembered that was there so you got that and then I but then when it's like you gotta make a passport reporter whatever the fuck it is. I stumbled into talking to the guy and she just randomly asked like Hey. How do we get on this fucking train and I was like Oh man? It's a good thing I did this because if I didn't go to that person and have that conversation like yeah exactly exactly I could see you in wandering the castle for a dozen hours going like fuck one more point like a couple of hours after that that same thing of just like I have a game like that you really wanted like figure it out you really want to be able to score and it feels opens also can lead to that feeling of just like well clearly. I'm not supposed to be here yet because it hasn't presented. It's like I haven't figured this out upgrade so I guess there's somewhere else I gotta go and they'll be some chest with fucking wing in it or whatever <hes> yeah this. That was a little thinking about thinking through like yeah. I guess I was lucky to do those things in that order because without that conversation without that guy saying Oh yeah I can do that for you. You just gotTa bring me a photo and going oh well. There's that there and do all that stuff like without that. I would've never never would've happened for me but but I happen to stumble upon those things in the right order and I've been playing more apex like I've been I'm kind of chipping away at it here and there he's into full swing yeah yeah and just having a really good time with it yeah. I helped on the P._S.. Four version last night for the first time since Launch Day Day was the last time I played that there was my first time like really spending more than like a game or two with season to like I had never even come across the weird birds at like yeah carry around the death. Box is one of the new map thing yeah. It's like just free death boxes like PTERODACTYLS will pick up somebody's death box and things people. They don't even pick up someone. That's a new fresh death box. I think I had two times it will have one of your friends names was on it. Oh okay well yeah I had to one of them looked just like it was like there's just like what purple thing and I'm like. This is obviously like yeah thing but the other one it was so random the items in there. It made me think that it was a real every time I've seen one. It's always been it's always seem like random stuff something. You've just got lucky deal you shoot the burden dropbox carry in the box around and sometimes it'll have like one of your friends names on it which before people realized it led to people don't like what what am I friends is in this game no add look into the new math features and that's the first one I've heard and that instantly makes me want to play that way more than I expected like. It's a huge thing and it's like something something the other stuff the dinosaur stop around the map which again is is not a huge. I Taboo lately interacted with in a way that will kill you like you have to avoid it up and down like I don't think I've never had to avoid it but it seems like if you went out of your way to run under the feet I bet you could die. I don't know didn't they blow something up in one of the neighborhoods there's a well it's the tower in the center was destroyed in a cut scene. That's cuts that lowers the force field that lets the dinosaurs get in okay so it's not have you noticed parts of the map seeming dramatically early days. It's not like they went like we bloop skull town and now it's fucking bone fragment town. Nothing nothing that dramatic that I've seen but I don't like inherently know the map like the back of my aunt or anything either so some of it could be lost on me but have you played watson once or twice. I don't know that I well so it's kind of the problem with that game and the genre era and this is this happened in Pudgy lot too early on for me is like you get deep into these games without having experienced with certain types of weapons or abilities or stuff like that and then suddenly the chips are down and you go to deploy them and you're like I have no fucking idea. How any of this works and you're done because you're like? How do I make these fences? What can I walk through these fences like what are you know all that stuff and there's all like practice ratings trailing room where you can just like they have training but not exactly but you can't pick what you're have to spend his lifeline right exactly yeah? It's not like ability training and also oh I wonder if they even put the all-star into that training area well so you got ran the if you wait along route if you wait around long enough random drops like care packages we'll drop in and that might have a chance to drop L. Star but I've never fired a traber in that game because I had the opportunity to grab one but it's always late game enough that I'm like. I don't WanNA suddenly shift the gun. I've never hired you. Learn how you learn very high risk rights. It's high risk learning where I feel like if they if they had something where you could go like okay I wanNA fuck around with these abilities or or just like give me a paragraph about how these abilities work as opposed to video to in-depth videos to deal with the Kramer. Where is it guaranteed? Kill with a headshot or it's close very close to kill but because that's the guy got dropped twice the first time like you just got nocco. You're right. I I didn't get knocked down. Knock down. I think it took doc all of my shield. I like four shield to all of that plus most of my health and I was able to get off and recover and the second second time I got knocked. Yeah you see this footage going around last week of a there's a streamer playing who was sure that he was getting cheated needed like he was getting bombarded by this dude and died and you spectate at the guy on his stream for like five minutes watching him with the are ninety nine from like basically not even being able to see enemies just yeah killing them from so he reported him live on the Stream <hes> MHM for like three minutes later the do got banned live while you so. Everybody was like freaking out going like Oh my God. They're banning live. This is amazing. One of the respond devs posted news like I happened to be watching that stream while I was fixing using bugs and just went in and looked at that's cheater Dubai like murdered him on strike from Riyadh H._Q.. So yeah I think that's that's like my issue with like I so I stick the lifeline most of the time because most teams need a lifeline lifeline works and I'm effective at all stages of the game yeah yeah so it's I feel like I'm not necessarily incentivized to branch out to new characters at this point because it would be such a reset and also like the healing is useful and no one else on the team is picking lifeline having like a practice ranges is something that we've been talking about since since this was sort of like high stakes gaming right same deal with the L. Star like I've I've passed over an all-star for a weapon. I'm more comfortable with because you know because we're deep in. If it was like the first gun I found a great. Let's go like low stakes who cares but if I'm two-thirds the way through and I find a gun that I'm just not that familiar with. I'm not going to switch off of stuff that I probably already know about. I ended up going. I just going to say I ended up actually record shop with the massive for the first time just because of the three that's probably the easiest because it's a shotgun under shock yeah get close to pull the care but yeah I understand the like. You're just like there's three squads laugh. Do I really wanted to. I doubt the star new for Susan. Why would I heard that name just played all fall to the one that it's the one that titanfall to that wasn't yet in Apex? It's the one you pick off those robots totally <hes> is it is so it's in that drop pod tier with the crater. The goal isn't always like a fully kitted out one in the drop ship. I don't know okay in the world to then they actually I've only pulled them off dead bodies so maybe I don't know where there were there starting. Those weapons are not in the tutorial shooting range no they might have added them but I don't know played the Ford Dettori all right okay good unfortunately apparently the game right. Now is the alternator with that new shield piercing rights extender or whatever you WANNA call that like four shots will drop Purple Shield to nothing so you just like an altered the fucking Shitty L. N.. G. has become like an endgame state mile and then they put a hop in for the mosaic. I heard her competitive situationally good food at minimum. I guess I had read the patch notes before the season two on paper. It really didn't seem like they were changes. Were that playing in kind of twin around extended ended energy. mags is a game changer totally the that heavy energy gun. I forget the name of is the havoc yeah yeah. It's even better before it's crazy. 'cause I love that gun before like they've done a good job of at least shaking the things up I mean we'll see if it's not always like visible shaken things up in terms of how like just things fire things feel and the damage that you're doing and stuff but yeah it's not like we blew up this part of the map and Blah Blah Blah Blah aw sounds exciting yeah. It's a lot of fun. There's a free battle pass like I was playing earn rewards on my secondary account which is nice. I just some stuff on my P._S.. Four don't necessarily have I'll make characters and locked and stuff. I'm still earning some some prizes. It's a nice little small thing that keeps you want to keep playing. I think we're GONNA dig into that a little bit deeper leader in the week. Yeah that'd be nice should be phone the Games we'll talk about. Maybe got a couple of what you please okay yeah before anybody else place soul Saraf no. I've seen some pretty mixed things about yeah. It's the on paper you the check check it out. We kind of made a new very excited about that. Announcement the came down the less excited now that I've played a bunch of four after the quick play a little bit more. I tried to play two or three more times and it just gets very repetitive like so. You're GONNA love this. They effectively termed the strategy portion of actor razor into a tower defense game. Oh sweet yeah. I heard that that's kind of what is a little more to that was but that is the core now of what that is. I mean you know monsters would attack your town inaccurate less like structured wave based kind of way it was more of just like kind of top down shooter almost and they were kind of constantly spawning and like the fucking with your town in a way that was not necessarily devastating right just like Oh. You're slowing progress. That's right whereas here like if you you know your town has health and if too many waves get through you straight up like get bounced back a certain amount of progress like it's it's okay but it's not quite what I was looking for. We're out of that part yeah and the sites growing stuff is just not great when it's very cliquey if they needlessly identical to act kind weirdly I would say it actually doesn't play as well even though is not playing games but like you can get a feel for it and for the most part to deal with its quirks this just feels mushy and kind of not responsive in the way that you would like and like the enemies are pretty boring fight and it's pretty weird that like to seal before when you would get a road to a thing that you're towns people would just like seal the monsters in this one. There's a very small combat arena is still has the first and last like you get into an island you have a combat level and then when you were wrapping up right and there's a combat right. It's got that but then yeah in the middle every time you kind of eradicate a monster spawning thing you go in there and just fight enemies for two minutes like really small screen this kind of repetitive like it. It's okay yeah and it's only fifteen bucks but it's not there's some cool things like uh like hey. It's probably still better than act razor to problem just an action game yeah like no strategy at all because fly but the flying was bad the point yeah yeah. There's some there's some cool in the little stuff like I'd like to that all the monsters. You were fighting in the two D.. We're the monsters outwardly then the writing writing. It's got some really charming characters in it like that. Stuff is pretty entertaining but it's kind of slog finished like three of the six worlds and just Kinda don't have much motivation awesome it's disappointing but because it was such a flash in the whole there's a new actor went away deflated enthusiasm been plans dragon quest builders to that was that was overall much better game than the first one even though it's kind of like I think we all had some qualms about the first yeah you could see where that game. You know really hadn't strengths in building. It was fun yeah but you know the progression was oppression. Stuff like a lot of you is stuff and just like Kinda crappy inventory management kind of stuff fix all of that wow. That's why you're listening. I it's been like three years since the first game came out here almost seems insane same but I've forgotten how many limited things are were in that game like kinda frustrating things until actually went back and read like what the differences are and I was like Oh right what you couldn't craft multiple objects of once in the first game like Oh yeah you couldn't carry around unlimited resources sources like you had to just drop stuff. He ran out of room on your bar so right now. They've given you a bag. That's effectively unlimited announcing carry as much as you want like you can craft as much stuff as you want. My towns people will do some building another busy work for you. It's cool like they've they've of kind of streamlined. A lot of that stuff story seems fun. Did it is written really well but there's so much fucking dialogue like holy like it's it's entertaining. It's got a lot of charming personality to it but like manslaughter. It's just a lot of reading every time you do anything. It's just like six or eight screens of texts people common constantly on everything you're doing so we did that. Quick look this up on the site now and you said that it didn't really have a lot of reasons for you to go out into the world next time still on the island okay <hes> has that changed at all or is it so there's agricultural game which raise crops like it's weird. There's a little bit of kind of started Valley Harvest Moon in this year because there's like an actual like farming system in the game so after I did the stuff that we had left off in the quick look like I raised basically like thirty cabbage and fifty wheat or whatever now they want me to go out and discover three more crops and start raising those for a total of two hundred fifty crops yeah so like I need to go out and find those crops but it's all just kind of feeding into this like treadmill of sure objectives yeah so it's much more based on quests and doing tasks people unless about just like roaming world than digging and finding stuff kinda picked a couple spots and there's like all right. I'm going to dig down and see what I can find like. I never found any caves underground the ground or I hope that's out there at some point in but I'll keep pecking away at the town gets attacked yeah now and then like story driven or is that like it just there's there are there are story based like you've done all our quest associate now. There's monsters coming. You gotTA fight five minutes so the cops come and try to snatch your crops one hundred percent what happens then but then there are also random just like at night and stuff like random monsters spun him so are they dealing with the Russian says oh you mean like compared to the first game the first game like broken up into chapters and every time you finish a chapter like that stuff was gone like you didn't keep your structures or your resources like anything kind of a bummer this game. You have like you own islands. You have a private island <hes>. Can you invite people to it. Yeah I haven't I haven't finished the first story island that I left my island to go to you but my understanding is some of the people you work with on those other islands. We'll come back with you okay and kind of do his online play. You can play to your article online and you can make them fight right. Maybe for your entertainment possibly more play volleyball have a fighting tournament on my island private islands Douglas Island but yeah that's that's how they fix that problem not maintaining progress in the first game. is you go out. You're still going out and doing kind of chapters four other people but but you have this island that you come back to and like you keep all your recipes and stuff like that kind of your kind of building up a home base that you can kind of customize is as much as you want it permanently throughout the entire game <hes> yeah so low overall it seemed like a much better game than the first one even though it kind of has really slow start cool checking up and not as much exploration so far I came very close to getting into it over the weekend. I had a moment around like I'm going to buy the eighty dollar version of this season. Pass comes with a recipe for sunglasses. Oh so you need those island yeah yeah. I locked BANDANNA but I haven't figured out he's kind WANNA. Put It on your head okay. I say there's only one hairstyle. When you create dragon quest okay fine Toriyama only one hair style? It's five eight colors but literally just heike the Spiky anime here is the only for the mayor also do kind of a bowl cut thing for like trunks female characters same hair. It just goes flat when their energy is low or it's wet out. That's right. That's fair. Also you have a companion in that game who was like Florida death made made made into small child but he doesn't know it Amnesia so he doesn't know he's got instruction. Don't tell me tell him that he can't that. Suppresses murderous urges though like he's constantly just like very jovially talking about sledding people's throats and stuff like it's. It's really funny the Sats we know how to yes. I see it's there's there's some really good writing in that game like I said there's just a a lot of it and it Kinda gets in doing stuff sometimes childlike retelling of drag my understanding but I never played too but that's what I read it is the first game was kind of that also from one right so also I will say I haven't heard like the over world music worth of music yet. They managed to get you five or six hours of the game with without dredging up those themes Dragon Quest Games is one of those things like is great but also people are always pissed because the guy hi who holds the copyright prevents the versions okaying orchestrated versions always what's up with the guy is the guy sucks that the same guy. I've heard there's some weird stuff going around. I I don't know it was just kind of a jerk well general my understanding. Is that like this. The person slash company responsible for the Copyright of the Music Sucks Okay and that's why the music is never redone away you want interesting as someone who only comes comes to dragon quest once every ten to fifteen years. Let's go fuck yeah but if you are playing every single one of these I imagine at some point like fuck that the money money honestly that feeling about the music is a lot of wild like the first roller exactly like I actually I kinda. I'm giving them credit for not just dredging those same same themes again at the beginning of this game so it's a little bit different in that respect. It's cool. I'm definitely going to keep I need to get off that first island and see how that stuff yeah. What's that transition? I kinda hit that wall of like well you raised all these crops now raised five times more crops and I kind of slow down a little bit yeah. I'll trudge through that stuff so I believe the mortal Combat Combat League in this morning or maybe an hour ago. It seems like it was close to you. Guys get into that thing. I fell hard into that thing the whole lot of wanted I probably end up playing probably fifteen sets total okay so you got problems most of the challenges and get the Scorpion Skin. No no that was like I would have to play five sets a day for ten days and I did not do that. I played like fifteen cents total. I thought you meant okay. Okay Yeah Yeah so no I completed one or two of the challenges. They all seem to tangible like it was just a matter of like am I into this enough to meet that daylight. Somehow ended up being superintendent. I couldn't believe that I looked at that stuff and all that stuff looks like a grind and then I started playing online and those I was like Oh shit. I really liked this game. I'm trying to get better at it and ended up. Getting I got Scorpion Skin. I have to check but because you don't get the rest of the stuff till it ends and then I think I got Qatada and the scarlet skins as well okay. That stuff structured pretty well. I thought very upfront about not like hey. Here's what you need to do to get this. This the second tier of ranking like I ranked once the past Tana Skin into this Dr like whatever the getting out of the zoo should them league. You should get scarlet yeah and then they think great characters will never play yeah also all the skins it turns out or palate swabs of existing costumes. I thought they were brand new. Yeah we'll now yeah. That's there's I think it's kind of the other shoe dropping on a lot of the early a disappointment around the games skins and this idea of unlocking one hundred percent of the corrupt and all this other stuff is now. They're just like if you've got a twitch prime account you can get skins and we've skins for that and you're like oh right. It's a modern video. You're never going to get all the skins because at some point you're going to have to go yeah yeah. They've they've built it as a modern video game yeah that makes sense for sure. They're always be more skins but turns out. I really liked playing in K.. Eleven yeah it's it's fucking good and even like the the my big fear about not wanting to have to play like a ranked load out like a tournament friendly load. It turns out that the load out I was building Scorpion. I only really relied on one one of the like that played said Spear Spin Yeah so so it turns out. I don't need the other moves that I was using my custom. Load out got so many is mixed up the right term high like high and low hit combos. He's like all all of them but you have to memorize all combos the block them effectively much yeah. That's yes that stuff like that low kick into the fucking downward like that overhead fucking sword. Yes stab yes. That's all really annoying Scorpion and Kung Lao or my nemeses after this first season I I got saw this. I got salty enough to go online and Google like K.. Eleven Scorpion overpowered just found a bunch of people going like yeah. He's had favorite character. Of course he is all right. He's syndicated tear like this was the one in black. The one I think is event hubs like trusted they they had him favorable title on Lake two-thirds or three quarters of his match-ups or something there to your thing is I community voted vote on individual matchups and then it like rinks people accordingly so it's like you know yes and no but I mean all of its kind in a subjective sometime yeah wrong about because based on personal preference if they said how often those colleagues are going to happen I they may have I don't know I wonder how come you the game I started playing a little more sam show yeah just because I was staring at my playstation and needed to play video game. Okay 'cause all under the weather but I yeah I watched C._E._o.. Topic for do see the one from C._E._O.. Now it was really cool because just in one just wreck shop through. It's the final yeah it made me like nostalgic in a way for like old fighting game stuff to seem like up because just in while he's still very good at fighting games but like he's not the best of the best anymore aging out. It sounds like a child living the life he's ascended indigo like the elder statesman of fighting community now one of really cool watching that because it was so easy easy to follow even though I didn't know anything about the game itself anything about these characters or anything it was just cool seeing like really strong fundamental fighting game action like really Kambas at most. You'RE GONNA see like three hit combo unless it's a multi hitting move or something but yeah just seeing how fucking lame he played and it was so effective yeah that was the pride like a lot of people don't know just as long had a real nasty reputation early on is it's just be the lamest player just like very good defense like this game or in all games and just see mostly mean like not flashy not necessarily as Turk sterling up a little a bit traditionally inviting aims means way more than a lot more waiting for your openings a lot more than like going in so a bunch of bullshit what I'm here but it was cool to see that like a game in coming out in two thousand nine hundred thousand can cut hearken back to that earlier style of the stuff is Kinda still exists in people still I just as long as like super love and the game so is Samaranch showdown like the old man's fighting game then is that where does that kind of mental focus like a nice little dish their lot of other fighting seniors tour more of a head game than a reflects just like a head game being really good good at noticing your spacing there you are opponent is what you think they're going to do. It really is the new Pacheco Blade kind of the unfortunate part was so so I was inspired by that so I hopped in picking a few characters in training mode training out there moves train out just like if you'll for the game leaning towards who's the do all the swords not Ju Bay gaffed. Yeah I always forget swords right is the guy I like 'cause he's got seven swords and his has pretty cool move. Move is like a huge grou-. It's almost like a powerwave yeah kind of thing that comes out of it looked cool as hell. I it was impossible for me to find a game online go into. I haven't heard the greatest stuff about the when I find China game. I was searching for ranked. Only I only tried for maybe twenty minute. It hasn't been where there is no such thing as I only tried for twenty minutes to find a match of video game. That's not you don't need to say only in that part error out like different stages before I found a match when I found a match right when we loaded into the game I never play but it would just kind of maybe the rooms are better. I didn't try the lobbies but unable to get a group together to fortunate in that regard. That's a bummer but we should play locally yeah. It'd be really I'd be willing to put a little more time into it now that I've kind of seen what it looks like being plagued by people who know how to play tam-tam Sprit Cece my pockets ham town. Everyone's got a pocket team. Did you see even numbers I did. That pretty I happen to have them open in front of me to see that what we mean number the final registration numbers for each of the bad good they're up overall up overall feeling about where fighting games are at as a John Shaw fighting. Do they not cap registration. Does it just take all comers. They might have like a total entrant cap. Not For events people can enter multiple games. I guess it's real quick smash ultimate. It was the first place with thirty four hundred ninety two streetfighter five behind that with about two thousand than Tech in Samurai showdown mortal Kombat under Night Dragon Ball fighter actually dragon balls above yeah there were swapped for Dragon Ball under nights all caliber and Cross tag battle in last. I was surprised the other night so well for sure and then especially saying Samsung fourth place or whatever yeah a lot of people interested about that game mm-hmm I mean a lot of people probably registered before the game was even out for that. Just like Oh play the New Samurai. I should say my show register for this just in case. It's good yeah or like it'll be fun way to like you know the pool you have the odds of like like making out of your bracket right. Oh like nobody knows how to play this by bullshit and if you don't know a bunch of people like getting it on my matches pretty difficult so you'll fight people who've only fought A._i.. I'm excited for Yvo it's coming up. It's going to be my first time and a few years not going which is nice because you always get to watch for going to events continues to be the worst way to follow follow. Thank you can stay sober and watch street at Vegas Yeah. You're not in Las Vegas. Just feeling your health. Just drain out of you every minute. You're there <hes> Gaming Pyramids or Magic Pyramids you that's true yeah. What does this Dragon Ball thirty who it is right or did it come second yeah yeah early? Yeah you're right okay. It's more low seems like it's fallen down the list. It feels like it Kinda. Yeah like it's simple should going on like the rights holders. They weren't letting it be in tournaments so that probably sucked out yeah. Yeah we went back and fourthly everyone kind of pointed at everyone else when it was like if it's not US preventing it from being play I it was like Namco Namco was getting the finger tollway but then toy is like no comedy you everyone was just pointing the finger. Nobody really no but yeah that dreamed a lot a lot of pros for dragging ball players like do I really WanNa put into it might not be there or maybe it will ya not worth it. I don't WanNa get shut down. Bound copyright strike yeah so they're just kind of hands off with it. I think I don't hear about it being played his job. Everybody Nice work on that one but yeah also maybe things like the play on. Maybe I'm wrong. I don't know I got the impression that maybe like people kind of topped out on it a little like that. Maybe it didn't necessarily have the depth like people got real good at it. Real fast name has I don't know they keep throwing a new characters and people gravitating towards them and I hear G._T.. Goku broken fuck yeah. There's there's still probably Shipton to discover about that game yeah for sure. I don't think it's cheeked by any means okay. I'm just relied for under night. I really cool now that this game I watched watched it at the previews evoke side-stream threatening it has some killers. There seems like a really great diverse lineup of total aims it at least speaks to that end defied. I think it's easy to look at it and you're like man tech and it's kind of long in the tooth streetfighter five feels like very ancient at this point. This is like tech like six or seven fucking years like arcade version. There's only available in yeah it really has it's been around for a while and yeah you got some new stuff obviously the new M._k.. cross-legged battles another. You're always gonNA have a slot for whatever the current and other realm game is but I guess it's cool to see like under night in there cool across tag there. Was You know when they announced that Malay wasn't going to be there. There are a lot of people like Oh Yvo obviously doesn't care about smash all Blah but it's called to sue that like thirty four hundred people are are coming out for ultimate like there's still obviously seeing around smash you know how did that shake out. Obviously fucking the Malay people are Malay People Bun has ultimate scratched the enough. I have people moved on from Malay or they just broken inside always a new. It's a new crowd. It's a new younger crowd of ultimate players like maybe grew up watching may lay and enjoy in Malay yeah a few years ago before in four obviously was a big setting so for a lot of those people a lot of the thing I think you look at like counterstrike almost like that divide the six speed or whatever like are the Malay people just doomed to be the one point six people forever basically mocked well but a big the problem with that of this anecdotal so this is like my group of male friends now. We're all like coming up on thirty. Do you really WANNA learn a new competitive games or the ground up when you're thirty. It's a lot harder like you don't have the time to pour into it that you did when you were like in college playing every night with riots you just Kinda like playing the game that you love 'cause it was the game you've loved. That's probably not to different from me still sitting here saying this is due hyper fighting now. That's a streetfighter game. Yeah Super Street fighter too is bullshit to Turbo Desert Super Turbo classically a friend of exactly. No one likes that games garbage can't say maximum. I kinda cool very cool do D._J.. A lot but he's music that's a long word to have mirrored the way down yeah right man. They thought they thought that went through. What letters can we yeah? They're just like probably look the letters okay okay which ones are really symmetrical. Wisconsin could get away with those two weeks away. Yeah we end of August. I wanted to tweak and his yeah wow that is that's pretty super qualifying games there. What do you do things like what what do you think Disneyland no but I mean like streetfighter six what they still seems in those thoughts we have perhaps Oh user questions? The next big like what game is GonNa like. Shake this shit up and I'm old registrations and be like okay. This is now like if not number one number two for next year's Yvo rations wise like where we've really thought Dragon Ball was going to be the fear of like kind of this big thing but yeah that's that's. I think what I'm like becoming increasingly interested in like looking at stuff take like like yeah you're right. They seem increasingly invested in streetfighter five but also there's no upcoming announced content for that game right in a couple of weeks if they've got more not as far as season passes concerned right yeah so edano overs com file four we're GONNA pretend in for the didn't exist or they just play tappin o hands in the real seniors league. I took out a little bit seems alright. Yeah Jan Cuban yeah. I've been playing a little bit of it. So you say card game right. It is a card battling or what if I told you it's like clash royale. Wait not a good thing thing well. How how so you're although I'm listening? Classroom is one of those games where like yes. You're units are on cards visually represented as cards but the actual game has more of like an action strategy yeah so tappin like take your stamina meters building up and then each card costs a certain number of stamina points to play and positioning matters and the timing matters also and then you're just like straight shot towards your opponent. It's almost like an act of time battle right the the meter is constantly filling up so you're you're next to play a car kind of yeah that sounds cool and hardstone. Your hero character has like an ability that can affect either specific units or the enemy complete pick a character like fighting game style. It's basically just like Capcom all-stars right from what I could tell because it's like mega man of Dante Crapton art good reason the whole reason I know about that game people post hosing screen shots on twitter of the art is like and I'm not even like some big concept art fetishes look at this art yeah like the art in the garden that is like it is very cool like it looks amazing. That's free play read. That's cool yeah. You know what else you play right now. Kind of the first couple levels yeah it's final fantasy fourteen there you go and after tiptoeing around it for months now finally took a Mathausen. It took a little bit of a plunge <hes> like a little bit Zeitgeist at the moment bringers like dropping recently and I have gone to further in the stream we did last week. Maybe up to level all ten fifteen ish still wanNA ride that Shoko having gone it up to it yet. The big level you gotta get to you before you can redeem Jacob. Oh Yeah Yeah I'm almost there for someone that hasn't played too many memo's other within like a maple story a Ragnarok online. This is neat because everything looks pretty fantastic. I mean you were there at show. Boat looks real fuck and on top of that. Let you see it before you can write it. Oh we saw other players Ryan Okay you use. That game looked pretty. It does need for that starting area thing it's kind of the weird thing about having not really followed. M._O.'s all that closely kind of dip in and out of like I'll play play tariff for a couple of days out. No thanks so a lot of those games is kind of drift in and out of the consciousness and so how still becomes like the prototypical this is what an emo looks like and then you take a look at fantasy that came along years later and is a much more modern looking engineer like this game fucking Good Holy Shit and yeah it's and then people are just pulling all different types amounts out of nowhere and like I thought it was just mostly because we were playing on stream and people were following US yeah they're bussing weird mounts but then like there were three people separate people. I saw just running around in their cars that turns out. I missed the window. There was a final fantasy fifteen car rolling around like the mountainside in their cars. Yeah Look Grace shold out for the match offer. I deem punk mix. I already started. I stopped playing because I wanted to see like the most optimum build because they're they are selling those level level of post booster potions think to just like story skip stuff and you know people have gone back and forth about whether or not like Oh skip it doesn't matter the new stuff and there's just as many people saying Nano you should do slog and then if you've really find a boring then get the skip potion. Everybody says that each expansion in that game gets better and better. It'd be cool to see that progression exactly experiencing all the improved stuff. It's just a matter of how many hundreds of hours to get to quote unquote the good stuff. I think that's been the daunting thing for me. I almost like that was that was my my weekend was looking at drank with builders to and final fantasy fifteen. I just don't have time for either these games right now but I came pretty close to to pull the trigger on both of them pull the trigger fourteen also did free trial like you can just download it on console and just go or what's the one of buying on console okay uh-huh well. You don't have to pay the subscription until level third. God Okay and like the P._C.. You could just get a trial yeah and characters. Don't go back and forth right after you have to pick your platform and stick with it or characters I do yeah probably but the clients don't cross play thought I'm pretty sure like there are a couple of peeps that friends real-life that said going on on my P._C.. I'm playing on P._S.. Four so what scientists like if you have to buy it on both okay okay but you can't let the same character across I think okay yeah started another pugilist because I still want punch stuff <hes> yeah long history of punching things game but then I started looking at like Min Max everything I just want to eventually get up to that gun blade. They just added all this other. Everything was so cool but then that's level sixty out to do so many other things to God. I'm just going to be an it's going to play the class. Yeah Tell Ya giving you jacket and the frill scar across your face Skim your best. Nothing personal kid too shy. You can never do it then you don't earn the gun blade unless you can do it all right well. We'll I'll have to earn on like video or something yeah okay yeah. How many classes are it's jobs right into the like? How diverse are those dancers? They're like blitz ball asshole or um yeah. That's that's the prime one yeah. Let's all asshole daddy issues. Is that a check characters well. That's just a cost across class. Yeah let me see it was like a bunch because I think one of the last expansions like added more jobs or classes during that level fifty. I wouldn't say his name he could be a Samurai. You'd be a dragon funding off the screen and come back in should hope so. Oh my gosh there are a lot of classes in game uh-huh and like you have to be a disciple of war was going to say the website has the mall broken up into disciples war disciples of magic disciples of the hand disciples of the land. That's me those are the that's a lot of classes there. She's so I assume land pet classes hand casters badgers probably punchers no punchers as part of WHOA. It's like crapping yeah so hands like Carpenter Blacksmith Jeff Goldsmith Culinary Ian Oh that'd be cool weather worker. The Steven Seagal of final fantasy samples of the land to ponytails. I so land is just minor botanist Fisher fun now I could spend hours fishing problem subjects that guessing we're not expect fancy fourteen to become the game of the moment yeah I from. They've told me shadow bringers like the best final fantasy games aimed I've ever played well. Actually people like people have stuck with it so much for so long we know heavily interest has been building to the point that of course there was going to be that expansion that just got everybody's yeah it is almost a shame that like the there's no optimal way to experience you get to that stuff without compromising one way or the other and I think that's unfortunate but also for the people that are in it like it means that they've got this ongoing story are you that it's still ongoing and getting better which like awesome for them but it makes it a little impenetrable. I think for for new players so anybody know if the Yoko Taro Dungeon is in yet. I assume don't believe it. I figure I heard about it or your head. Dungeon Right Thaddeus also is that what it is okay yeah I just want experience that and then you know twelve is supposed to also be in the Game God you can be bunnies and stuff crystals rather than be bunnies and crystals rabbit ears and gun blades is how God dream come true indeed what happens when they put Donald Duck in that Game Joe not get me started bad kingdom hearts shit warlock class. That's not that's not going to happen because he's like you know the master astor warlock. It's right now do the ending of three can. I show you guys that scene one time. She's Oh man I. I almost cried. Yes I almost cry Fuck Donald Duck. You can show me the ending of course three walk on man when everybody else I will not have to finish one true when he did that. Zeta flare he'll okay it evoked on the first movie moments to me that might resonate with you. That's a big statement right there. That's a huge because that is maybe the most emotional moment of my childhood. I'm just saying I was looking at some Donald. Duck orange juice to the store the other day and I felt pretty emotional too but I'm sure pants on they were when I started but when I was done somehow they weren't our Donald Yeah once you get to get your vitamins all right on that note. How about we take a break and then come back talk about the news? Yes support for today's show comes to you. In part from new starbucks triple shots energy triple triple shot three threes triple beans right. Yeah triple means three okay. They've got that triple starbucks okay everybody Chad can get over here and tell us about it. We could probably at these days starbucks triple shot energy has two hundred twenty five milligrams of caffeine slot from starbucks coffee. That's triple triple shah. It's gotta hit the flavor and it's enhanced dance with Guarani b-vitamins engine sing the energy to do what matters to you will sounds exotic. Yeah it's available three delicious flavors glued French Vanilla Cafe MOCHA and Caramel yeah. Sometimes you get to that point in the day where you're just like. I got to wrap it up I can't I don't have the energy to do what I need to do. Sometimes life takes a lot out of exactly did a little of that liquid pep that put a little bit of that life back in you with triple Josh because this life that's right starbucks. troubleshoot energy is right there when you need it within reach within reach at the local convenience store forget it. It'll it'll lift you to new heights if you if that's what you need in three delicious flavors as I said that's what they call choice exactly there's choices and also it's choice you could find starbucks triple shot energy at your local grocery or convenience store right right now at the top of the news this week. They announced that switch light finally yeah L. I.. T. Then we were wrong but David thing yeah I saw those pictures like Oh man we guys in the anti being the joy con Brandy callers. I sound like that yeah. I was going to read the top Blake Three SORTA headers on the actual like the officials which light site hit me dedicated to hand held play the system for Gamers on the go switch light is designed specifically typically for hand-held play so you can jump into your favorite game wherever you happen to be so it's a T._v.. Or what happened to be in my living room looking at my TV the house much is this the consul for me probably not yeah it's funny because if you scroll down to the bottom of this site they have sort of like a straight up in photographic comparison feature compares thing and the regular switch has like every feature lit up from none of them except for the one says handheld mode and why would they have that. That's terrible way to sell their new product well. It's only two hundred bucks. It's all three you. You probably can get me three. There's three different colors one of each yeah so coming out September twentieth one ninety nine ninety nine quick gray yellow and Turquoise <hes> yellow yellow Goodwin. Yeah thinks there's the pokemon One god Pok Mon.. When is maybe the best looking that's a launch? One re yellow mm-hmm yeah built enjoy cons do not detach proper deepak proper deep had instead of the weird button thing I saw T._v.. Out No doc eating one of those comparison charts with three the S.'s and stuff and it was is like kind of in-between the switch in terms of sizing so yeah. I've got a good sized size and wait comparison here. Pretty much looks like a normal switch with one of the joy cons off with yeah yeah pretty close to the new Three D._S._l.. incisors a little bit bigger but less weighty yeah later I saw that twenty percent or thirty percent more battery light number floor yeah something like that. Yeah didn't seem like a huge change when you look at it written out as hours depending on that's obviously depends on what game playing I think they were saying like three hours on the regular switch Zelda and four hours on this things but not massively more massively more especially for a consul. That's designed to be your consul on the go yeah screen smaller. It's like an inch smaller was they went from six to two five lesson an inch smaller actually. I'm not sure that's actually right. I think I think it's a super super smart and good thing for them to do like that's a good market. It's like the two took things like unique features that weren't necessarily vital to the experience and said Oh fuck all those. Let's sell this two kids and and get a bunch from out there like the best use case. I was seen families that right like a second switch or like a causal specifically for a team. I think I was personally hoping that when they did this that it would still doc that I saw my my only hang up. I have about this like I think. The model is exactly what they should have made. Just wish you we would still yeah so that's the thing that makes it kind of not for me at that point but I still like whatever we're as more and more games come out with POK MON coming up the likelihood of people animal crossing the likelihood of people wanting multiple switches in their home is only going up totally kids if my girlfriend is going to need a dedicated she I have my switch. My wife is going to need something a little a bayonet and and across and this will work for that but it's kind of a shame that they couldn't also drop it in the your existing doc yeah but also like she is never going to drop the switch into the dock. Anyway people totally will care about so yeah like in that case like a smaller unit with a better fucking deep hat on it. That's great like awesome. They're getting rid of the H._d.. Rumble stuff that will have used you know in what two games and that I are sensor on the controller that also real fun for lab oh and one to switch and maybe nothing else because like when you think about the first few switch commercials. There's that one of the rooftop party already right. That's like the go-to old switch ad which was just like the premise of it. Was You bring this concept to a party. You can set it down slide off the controllers around. Get some two player action going and like I'm sure most of the audience didn't do that but I think to like moments where we had our fire drill here we were out there playing streetfighter in this stream the street on a switch and that was cool but now like this without the detachable joy to cons. I feel loses just like a little bit of that charm yes but also it's still does ninety five percent of what people would do with it does a handheld like yeah that charm is is fun and all but like in realistic like people actually using the switch switch like how often was that and if you really are dedicated to that life get another set of joy cons still together other trollers to it. There's no way to be fair. Thing doesn't have a kick stand on it so you can't stand it up so no no you're right. You're saying yeah you'd have to play one is holding it while player to is looking streetfighter in the alley. I mean extent yeah. Not Everybody has a Jan.. They should get one contract me out to hold you switch do parties yes only rooftop fair enough to keep the left so any mention of like account sharing or family sharing. That's out there. who is out there? Okay I don't. I still don't remember exactly how it works. They have a family version of the online online account. That's like a discounted rate yeah. I don't think you've even need that. They they launched some kind of account something something with online service last September ish like they put out a fact basically at that time so you can limited. I think there's like I heard it described as similar to the P._S.. Four stuff as like you would have your primary switch Nankai Mary C. You make your primary give that one to someone else they can play your games and then you can play your games on you're not primary right but you have to be connected to the Internet to do their limitations around like Oh. If the Swish isn't signed into the Internet right for thirty six hours the Games are disabled or something like that but there is some of that okay yeah also like with with no docking and you lose any sort sort of ability to connect to like Ethernet for larger downloads right that might so work to Ethernet like that made that we don't we don't know we don't know people but it's harder and man 'cause. You're imagine how much more excited people would be about this. If it has some sort of Lt or four or five g not at all because then it'd have a monthly fee associated with it on top of that like I know a lot of people would be really going for a monthly if he if it meant they could have Internet for this which play like smash anywhere. I don't know about other providers but on verizon. It's just a flat ten twenty bucks or a twenty dollars a month. Yeah Shit was ten last last time I looked. Maybe I'm wrong. That was in my understanding is was twenty like ten ten bucks a month to put it on your data plan would be totally doable. I don't know man I was there. When the veto came out well the Beatles on three Jeeva like this is in kind of a different internet world didn't have video games yeah yeah but it had near here at persona four multi-player video and by near the thing that was a location based thing that you can get like you could actually play tetras ninety nine on a bus over not connection totally like I would be super into that? They didn't go that route but all the other hand is one hundred ninety nine dollars like they had to features at some point to get down to this price level totally. It's hard to argue with that price honestly the games that are already available for that thing. It's easy to go like oh well. I wish I had this wish this. We'll get a fucking switch then they still make those they do. I mean not like this complicate. The product offering bill lake there was say like Dacas skew the regular switch MHM for less. I'd be fine with that. I don't need to die of one TV. I don't need to docks but if I wanted to buy that does docking you get you end up with another but then you gotTa Road Doc throw in your bag when you go places. I guess I don't know have charter. I sure hope so I guess it's not guaranteed guaranteed based on Nintendo's history with handle guaranteed Davidge Archer yeah yeah I thought I thought I read that it did but I wasn't it. The new thirty s that's shipped without one that sounds right and that's pretty common practice in Japan yeah that was less common here when they did that. You're just why do they say anything about the touch screen being different other than like zoning size modes just smaller. I think team okay functionality. If that's what you mean yeah that's kind of a long in the short of it yeah. I bet they will sell a lot of these yeah. It's good it's it's good. It's the right time <hes> and I don't like the Cutler's. I'm kind of with you. None of them early do much for good. No yellow is the color of children crying. It's sad sad add color okay. I'm going to try to argue. It's gross. It's Sean is truly discussed the color of peak itchy you shouldn't that'd be that'd be the pokemon well that depends on how you feel about Pika Chew. How do you feel I feel great about Pika Chew? I can't speak towards everyone's about drop a hot take though he said that no dog peak choose a detective Lucia door wrestler peekapoos very versatile. He's he's a renaissance man. Yes I'M NOT GONNA get to even of the weeds on this but a couple of days before these which light got announced in fact I actually found the story. The digital foundry did after the switch like googling around they have been doing some digging a. and found that apparently knew better faster version of the tieger x one which is the chip that runs the switch. Yeah is coming because it's also used in the Invidia Shield TV though share basically we're digging into like open source documentation because I think just runs android android Lennox right and also the thing people discovered on the Wednesday that got analysis that Nintendo filed amended right. They didn't admit it filing with the F._C._c. with the existing switch to say that stream united united that we did this came up. I'm trying to think I we did talk about it anyway yeah to cut to the chase. It sounds like the system on a ship is getting basically smaller and more power efficient <hes> and less hot and it sounds like it may run just a little faster her and that's going into the real regular big switch as well. It's royal which <hes> so that's not the switch pro. That doesn't mean it's GonNa like w framework and it may actually they may clock it such that it doesn't have any performance other than just like hey battery life got better or or just you know. It's cheaper for them to make it. This is the same way it's your standard like transparent console minor revisions right and stuff but like again in a system where the battery life is contentious issue anything thing even that helps the the big switch last longer is kind of a big deal and until there's been doing this weird stuff where they're like patching stuff like Zelda over clocking the thing to make it load faster and weird stuff like that right so there as they get used to how how it works in the field and like okay we can afford to do this like you know what I want to say. It was the P._S.. P. Was similarly clocked a certain way but could be clocked and later on they kind of unshackled some developers <hes> to to be able to take advantage of those modes and stuff. The seems SORTA like that yeah we're once they get it out there like okay. It's not gonNA burst into flames. If we do this so we can. We could do it so there's some speculation this article that like hey maybe this new switch will have as much of a fan in it orange fan at all and stuff like that like maybe the last longer stuff like that like nothing nothing huge but like if you were going to buy the big switch at some point in the next few months maybe wait and see if this maybe wait and see if this revision hits the deal Israel is significant others say but and then presumably they're still be some kind of additional revision down the line there would be the new so yeah yeah right lose came out of the same anyplace that talked about this thing right and then the pro stuff kind of back Bernard and then dropped off as the light stuff picked last time I got address. The reporting was basically like ain't nobody knows exactly what they want to do with this yeah yeah so it might be awhile so maybe maybe they just kind of stay. The course with these kind of incremental upgrades get them better battery life and just Kinda hang out but anybody like chomping at the bid to get the light reorganised stick with your regular for the time being I will get one but it won't be for me Yeah No I. I don't see like I just have so many instances. Where like WANNA show somebody game? It's all slide into the dock. GonNa stick with the yeah. I really liked the video functionality. I use it a lot. I like that kick stand yeah yeah. I think so flimsy. I know it makes me feel every time I opened the thing. I think it's GonNa Break Off. I mean I feel like the switch like my joy cons. Both <music> are just wobbly enough that I like the idea of permanently attached. Joy Con seems great but I can't give up yeah. I bet the thing is built love to dog. I've heard that I bet the light is built like a tank. I bet that thing yeah yeah like style. Fuck Fuck. It says doorstop. That's coming up pretty soon. Griffin has been getting into Mario Kart. No Yeah the plan till the battery runs out. I'm going to be much to switch household. Maybe there's shared if I don't have to buy another Mario Cardinals with the Best Mario Kart on it. What's up a D._S.? Oh with no he likes using the touch screen. I don't think the D._S. doesn't have a touch right. Well it depends on. I thought this was interesting. I'm sure Jeff we'll have something say about it on how everybody feels about it but retro arches coming to steam for what purpose it's weird just to get it in front of more people yeah that that is they're kind of initial stated cigarettes arches the front end for the biggest to do what multi emulator thing out there that emulates emulates practically every console yeah like upfront. They say yeah that's their goal is initially just like let's get it in front of more people yeah. It's going to be the same as the thing you can download from her website for a while but the the reason is interesting to me is that the two things they mentioned that could happen in the future are willing to work with publishers who want to use Retro Arch to get their classic games on the steam right just going to use it as a as a back end yeah librarian but that's I mean Sherpa Damn. It seems like a good way for them to like wow have a foot in the legitimate business video game business well yeah but like all of the cores that emulate retro which is Really Fancy Front right. There's cores right yeah. Eh worst open source so you know it's a lot of ports of other emulators being ported into becoming Lib Retro is a unified library that they put all these into and there are some cases of course being you know advanced or or things beyond their their non recharge the non libretto state or having forked significantly enough to where they're relatively different things at that point but generally speaking. It's like hey you can go download beasts snus or you can run it as Libretto core and they're going to be positive negatives associated with <hes> your choices there <hes> and so they've become like this very big thing that is very convenient thing for users and in some cases there are emulator authors that find them to be a gigantic hassle because it's creating a lot of <hes> <hes> customer support type stuff that is coming their way from users trying to ask them to support these libretto cores that might have made different choices on certain things and like I know the the main team at the drop of a hat. We'll talk shit about the Libretto people and choices they've made around name Like Med defense similar deal ray cast which was a dreamcast emulator just got forked to become fly cast on live retro for a lot of fuck unseen drama reasons so there's there's like a lot of half the related Richardson is like controversial in a way but at the same time it's a very convenient thing for end users who don't WanNa fuck and think about any of that stuff. I JUST WANNA play video games that they totally legally acquired so there's actually some interesting quotes in this blog post about that one of the things they say is we want to grow our base and as of this month we have been putting a heavy focus in the making sure that Retro Arch urge can run originally bought content on game discs yeah they. They've added that that's in their their their nightly builds have menu options for that now so we're talking like straight up console games off the show at a disk in Taylor in your Blu Ray drive of your P._C.. And hit go oh and also it can dump those disks interest to format that I don't think is like hyper accurate like re dump back type stuff but whatever should be surprised wasn't in there to begin with but it's just never been a priority for most emulator authors. I think right now what's happening. Is you see people looking at the polly mega and really sneering at it as hard as they possibly can and saying we could fuck do that. I mean that's cool because I've got God boxful of P._S.. Two original xbox isn't there yet but this weird because those disks don't run in a drive right tiny discs now you'd have to them. You can't just put those in well usually as disarm drives. We'll have the they have the trade but there's something about the format of the right generally. You got a bunch of P._S.. Two Games at least that I can play Gio C._D.. Case you know <hes> Saturn. That sort of stuff would probably be a good candidate for that. I forget what the list platforms that it works with and now they just added P._S.. To support the emulator play that they have brought into Libretto is not as solid as P._C.. S._X. too but it is portable in multi-platform and all this stuff they needed to be so <hes> so hopefully that'll see some improvements yeah. It's it's been it's it's fascinating to watch all this stuff stuff happen. I think riches are really Nice Front End. I think the run ahead stuff they. They've done is is interesting but I see why people that are like accuracy focused. There's actually it was. Just like yesterday I was reading someone like this sort of thing you see from them from the outside in you're like Oh this is going to be some shit like someone went into the fucking maim sub read. It and we're like you guys should do this. Run ahead thing that retro is doing and it was just like all right. I'm GonNa Click in here and read dude. I know who's going to post this response and what it's GonNa it was it was just like this long screen. You'll fuck shit and reading it. I was like yeah. No I get why I get exactly why you would say fuck that Shit also at the same time it's kind of cool interesting and it becomes this weird fight for the end user that doesn't necessarily care about doing things right. They just want to do things easy and that's why Z.. Snacks was so popular so many years because it just because to there I of like what was his very convenient and just totally works. Actually it's a fucking. It's on fucking fire. It's complete piece of shit. It's been surpassed. He's saying like retro. Arch has versions of maim that are like from fucking two thousand three uh-huh because for whatever reason those just run better on raspberry Pi or they're trying to cater to at the expense of exactly what the main project was supposed to be about which is accuracy and so that's that's why I look at it and go like man that must fucking suck because now you've got the main team getting support requests for a fucking however many years old version of name that their responses always just like you should run real name. You should fuck and run the real thing. We've been working on for a long time. It's gotten a lot better than but you want to run pie through this fucking front end so we can't fucking help you and I get it. I don't know it's interesting that this thing is coming to steam on Xbox one now like like legitimately non through some fucking hacking thing. It's don't you still have to death mode but it's like but it does. I mean as your console. It's in the store. However you get off is not like barring exactly yeah it is not from you think will it ever get to the point where you can just run it on xbox as an APP without being developer mode? I don't know if Microsoft would approve that Microsoft. They already updated the Media Player in the Xbox to let you essentially wash pirated movie formats pets yeah there's deniability. They're like hey what you do with these formats is up to you. We just supported now. I mean you know M._t._V. is a versatile four just used by bootleggers but it is but it is also used by bootleggers <hes> and you should you know whatever I don't know if they feel like they have denied emulators in the past like things that we're just going onto like they were being submitted to go on the store. I feel like that stuff is given polled or or whatever so they may not be okay with that and then officials store setting also times changed the maybe they'd be a little more lenient towards it. Yeah I don't know it's fascinating this just a lot of tremendous software out there now and then as more and more of that software gets more and more places. There's just a lot of fucking drama that surrounds it because you've got a lot of people that have been focusing on the stuff for decades and think it needs to be done a very certain way and then you've got people coming along. Why do you still do it that way? We're going to do it this way this in this way and then they fight on Internet always fun to watch a proxy war of never directly talking to each other just end users asking for help and being told Hey watch go tell guys go fuck themselves fun fun. Watching the clash of Egos didn't takes place in these scenes open-source software development. It always has been so this is out on the thirtieth July. It's free windows. I Lennox Mac later. Here's the one other thing they said that I thought was interesting. At the beginning there will not be any difference between the version you can get on steam the one on our website as such no steelworks S._D._k.. Functionality will be present at launch or any additional steam features however after the initial launch we will begin exploring options on how we can start leveraging steams functionality as a platform cloud saves would be yeah. I was GONNA say features. Are that would work with emulators but you know it's I wonder if they know that'd be too deep of a weird thing so they have <hes> retro has support for Retro Achievements Roach. Even started work is is baked in hut to that now and it's Pretty Rad. It's people making it. If you don't even know what it is it's people making achievements for old games right. Now I kind of using the same tools you would use to make cheats attacks for a game <hes> going in monitoring memory and figuring out like this you collected one hundred coins in this level so we can trigger an achievement for that site profiles and other stuff that that community like self policing enough to say like okay. There's one set of achievements for Super Mario World and this is it. Yes like it's not like hey there are twelve different sets that people think that you know what they do. have is they will have official and unofficial achievements so like when a game is still in development quote unquote from an achievement perspective there may still be things kicking around the unofficial side of Ah Okay test and around with it but I do agree on like here is the conical set of yeah. I Really WanNa look what the Super Mario World achievements are they do leaderboards to speed run leaderboards for every level in the game <hes> and shit like that or at least one they do that. How should I shouldn't be looking at this? They're all written just like chill like they've all got. They totally vo got pithy puns for for titles. It's really nice we got. Let's see I think retro. Achievements just recently added a handful of apple two games while so it's like you're getting achievements in apple fucking two games unleash the dragon collect five dragon coins in one level. I believe I can fly collect feather. Let's see hijack like to use cloud eighty Kupuna okay. There's one for defeating the kids trying to see if there's so much of weird ones in here. Well Weird Weird. Ones get harder because you can only memory. You've only got so much to work with. You've got to go with what the game is already tracking right and so a lot of that is more easily numbers some stuff yeah definitely get create et at the start of one to overturn all eight Cooper's at the same time with a Cape pound okay get to the normal exit of five to without touching any walls enemies or blue blocks interesting. There's a lot of these action on star World Four Bring Baby Yoshi to the in the flag without feeding him. That's cool yeah. She plays Super Mario World Yeah. She gets world achievements. There's also a toggle and it's you know the sanctity of achievements is dumb anyway but they've got a toggle called hardcore mode that when you enable it turns off things like save states rewinding like that and you get double points for achievements you get in hardcore mode which is fun. That's neat. <hes> a couple of weeks off for the Retro Arch released yeah they added discord rich presence support not that long ago so this you know for games like game your plan for your running game. You're playing and stuff like that like it's it's a slick fucking piece of software when I think back to fucking Genesis Te and nest the at the time those were mind-blowing because they had fucking graphical user interfaces and you think and then you look at this thing is like it's pretty fucking while the how far that stuff is come see them talking about the raspberry Pi four yeah they support run ahead up through with. I think the sixteen bit Stoneham something like that pretty impressive yeah if thirty five dollar piece hardware yeah I'm on the Mr Side of that hardware though I don't give a buck for that price you'd just get right totally yeah what's the dynamics has announced that they will be doing a panel comecon. Four of the vendors game. Make sense will be the first public demonstration of Gameplay they will not be live streaming it okay look forward to we don't want to many people to know. This game is about how to build hype man. I guess that is kind of common for COMECON isn't it there aren't there are a lot of situation. We're not GONNA put this trailer rises for the people who can help build word of mouth. Yeah I twitter all that a lot. It's not like totally out of the norm and also they may very well. Just put this footage up themselves after the baby separate from the panel eighty so it's just coming out of e three in the way that thing and went down to like this making headlines by saying hey they're still not gonNA stream it when they actually start showing it like you know he's raised. If you I based on what you saw and what you described coming out of that presentation yeah I wouldn't show that two people either yeah not a good look yeah yeah. It was just yeah. It was hard to Parse. What was maybe maybe they have time to like? Maybe this will be different footage yeah so streamlined or whatever but I god it's it's I I understand why but it's still upsetting to see like whenever there's an article or something post about this with scream shot of the characters from the game. It's just all memes comes about how the B- Tear avengers porn stunt doubles all that stuff and like. I really don't think people are going to be able to get over it. Maybe not it's a weird thing yeah on one hand. I don't think they need to look like Robert Downey junior and Scarlett Johansson and all that they don't need to look like one to one but the weird the weird part is the suits are kind of the same. They're really invoking. The music is similar the movies and so many areas in which is similar but the faces yeah. It's really jarring when you see them. We'll just faces look like like look-alikes in a way or they've just Kinda went their own direction the character <hes> yeah I wanNA say like Tony Stark has trademark goatee and shit like that. They're look. They're looking like enough that they have the same colored hair instead yeah but not like it's not like what we changed one facial feature so we didn't ever or anything I know that egregious yeah well. Whatever that's you know I'm? I'm not in the not any any target market stuff because obviously like I've seen those movies. I don't know what the fuck this character is supposed to look like. They're so like that. It doesn't really bother me. It's more just like watching that leaked footage and talking to you about going seeing. It doesn't look like it's very good footage. Leak sell someone's on indie three. Somebody will do that COMECON and yeah exactly that's almost land gives them some like oh well. When you see the footage for real it'll look good but the shaky cam doesn't really show or we think that surprised praised me about that article in that game coming out? Tell them eve next year before that seems far not that far not that far but like marvel mania is like the weird state right now I feel like they kind of had their big climax with endgame and now they're in a new cycle so to speak that has his charge Ben and maybe they had wait until the cycle was over so they competing with those storyline those maybe distance from the movie of injures will make people accept this morning might come around a little more because it was coming out now after like these are not the adventures are those actors are pretty much done right. Is that more or or less confirmed shoot them at the though I know but I mean like contract. I always understood that they all kind of making another sore. She's getting around kidding same directors last one yeah. He was the most ambiguous his fate or whatever kind of the most ambiguous interesting I got the sense that all the kind of marquee actors sort of wanted out of that like doing this for so long bigger names to maybe maybe maybe a cameo down the lighter next year like normally whatever games get delayed all the time for all kinds of reasons. I thought it was interesting because it happened. Post host Microsoft acquisition. They also got out there on FIG. If you remember that's where that game crowd funded right fig right remember figure fig- still exists gee. This blog post was posted this is from Tim or at least. I think it's from Tim Schafer by I don't actually see who wrote this blog. Posts Anyway Field Spencer before anyone panics. We've confirmed that we will be able to honor lots to for every platform that we have already promised here and that includes bringing the game to play station for so yeah. I never figured that was in doubt apparently enough people did they had to get out there and say that the recent stuff of like steam steam saying now you have to actually on epic yeah I could see people fairy. That's fair even though there's no like console right and Microsoft is you know had there's precedent for Microsoft saying yeah put like honor your yeah like Obsidian pitchfork before they come out right. I wonder like this double fine and now get the pitchforks back because we're delayed twenty. I Dunno whatever double fine's it seemed kind of studio that benefits from having some wiggle room and then maybe it's time now that they've got some of the like resource cushion soft like they can make that game the thing they wanted to like. That's actually really why the seems interesting. Joining me is the maybe Microsoft is GonNa give them time. They need to really do what they need to do with their games now if I was looking forward to psycho knots too and I heard that they were going to push back because they are now working with Microsoft that would make me a little more excited. Maybe because that means yeah the resource cushion we're talking about and maybe means they can Polish it up a little more than like I've mentioned before but if you've ever watched that broken h documentary they did like they don't shy away from showing the sort of struggle to keep revenue coming in to continue funding their games does dislike does does this paint like grim picture for fig in a weird way that like hey yeah we were making this game as this crowdfunding thing that his platform and then we had to go get acquired by Microsoft and take another year on top of whatever other time they hit the lesson and just to get it out there and twenty last year and a half kind of point paints them fixer picture for fig really I mean there are banned unveiled on fig. There's a bunch of there's a good number of projects up on <hes> the front page in silent Bob game looking at it writer Franck Blunt Punch up people did what was it called. I'M GONNA I'm not. I didn't even clicked on it. I'm going to say it's attitude. East side scrolling beat up Super Combo. It is extremely to decide scrolling beat him up like she Bucci's Amigo outer wilds was a game okay okay wasteland three Phoenix point okay. There's some stuff stuff but there's some stuff anyway I cannot stand next year can only got out and announced the full game lineup for the Turbo Graphics Sixteen the mini release information so forth. It's coming out march nineteenth next year kind of still aways off yeah just in Japan or no. It's a weird thing so it's coming out of multiple territories and there's a different models based on territory. No I think you can get any of the territory. All three models went up for preorder on Amazon Japan allow that much so they're doing. They're doing a graphic sixteen looking one a P._C.. Engine looking. I think I Corps Graphics Graphics Yeah Okay which seemed guts. I think it's just the case but the kind of this is cool. I haven't decided I think it's cool that they've all got the same lineup in every territory as opposed to these other ones Japan gets set of games James <hes> U._S. gets another set Europe gets even third set the weird part. Is that like the Japanese only games or not getting localized snatchers. This thing will be so that's the weird one. There's a bunch of their plenty of games that will believe Japanese these Games on here that you need them to be like Super Super Darius. You'll be fine salamander. It'll be okay Chohan Iki. Hey definitely definitely gets its point across kind of better with new don't auto show any he speaks the universal they've got the arcade isn't the isn't the P._C.. Engine version of Ninja Guide in the Arcade version because that's on this list I believe so weird one word you could like jump up and the polls wing around and stuff like that that's a good game theoretically download fan translations that gets hacked and all other stuff so yeah but yeah there are a handful of Japanese Games on here ease one and two and snatcher kind of the tooth jump out of blood. You know like Seattle out of miss some missed the story. <hes> snatcher is the big one. I guess because that's one of COGEMA's pre metal gear. Well I guess just text based and it's an Adventure Game Tax Alec. You're not gonNA play that if you don't right yeah and you're out of your way through picking menu options with understanding it right but not the not the idea what it is that <music> I'm not super familiar with the lineage of snatcher releases. It has come out in English here right. Yes which came out I yeah okay here and has become somewhat rare or somebody expensive at least right so I guess this is probably not that different. I'm from that in terms of kind of the same game yeah okay anyway. They're a bunch of games in Japanese on this thing that you will get a certain amount of depending on how much Japanese you can read and also that lineup is good but it's missing. It feels like a list that was come up with in Japan and not necessarily the Games that it was known for in the U._S.. Is Not on this thing bryce box alex box revenge wants revenge but not bongabon. Don't think Balk Wyoming Yeah Yup surveys is the only ballgame on yeah and that's still get an air is on his on their no kief courtesy chief courage Keith. Damn <hes> charges not that good bad game but it was the pack in. Yes you know it for that shirt. Also it's like games based on an anime so interested yeah I forget what it's called in Joachim King but it is not called Keith courage. They've got the got cash on here working designs I games. I've never made it but I remember looking at it in magazines when I didn't have a turbo graphics and thinking man what's got numbers in it. It's like an R._p._G.. Sites Roller. I don't know if that Games actually T._v.. Sports football. We're this thing's doom now. It's it's it's. It seems like a solid lineup. It's got a lot of names that you recognize J._J.. Jeff military madness a recognize. Does it have the Japanese version of J._J.. Jeff Kato and Ken Doubt It Yeah Jeff Jeff is under the list so it was called. Quedo Ken localized J._J.. Jeff breath yeah. That's a really top notch. Kato and Ken were real people like one of the variety show comedic comedy duos Japan and there's a lot of poop in that game that they changed to you look like so it was like you could crouch and just fart in the game but they changed it to where when you crouched in the U._S.. Version he pulls out a spray paint can and the little cloud comes out the front instead of the back. Oh man real weird real weird weird weird game regardless of which reason you play nick terrorist is military madness yeah. They're both those are both on this list yeah. That's the thing is like they kind of reduced the overall game count by getting both versions in some cases now and that's not amazing for something that they pitched fifty games on the you're like Oh you know what I didn't realize he's wanted to also in the English list so if you will have in English and Japanese apparently yeah pleasing lasers yeah. It's my favorite Cagno on some good stuff on that platform ninety three. That's the one they go. Also that thing gets pretty expensive. If you like a real turbo graphic yeah if you you want to play actual five player Barman you have to buy a multitask trollers although weirdly the thing has to control reports on it oh the thing they're making defies history and puts to control reports on the front of this thing for people with people don't know the graphics at optics had one controller port on it. Do you want to play more than one controller yet by an adapter so it's like a switch light yeah basically pretty much anyway yeah. That's coming up next March. Whatever it's weird like all the stuff is easily obtainable? If you WANNA go that route already right but people like this stuff and the seems like a surprisingly okay version of that now totally this platform I would probably get the core graphics looking one. I'm not sure what I'm going to yeah. Yeah yeah sure I could see that probably the best one all right last story. I feel like I keep keep forgetting this that a new mortal Kombat movies on the way yeah yeah they announced that it will be R. rated for the first time in the history of mortal Kombat movies it will be R. Rated and it will feature fatalities which ones fed which ones explicitly they're. I have to wait and see I'll read the tweet from the writer of the movie since it's already been stated by other members of the team. I'm going to put this one to bed guys. Mortal Kombat will be R. rated and I for the first time ever fatalities will finally be on the big screen. No I'm not going to say nine one weekly. There was some fatalities mortal Kombat movie that you saw Scorpions ice ball thing sub zero zero broken or something like that or there had kill some guys or something like that I forget but the the first gory ones I guess right okay somebody said on fire like Scorpion did he pulled his did the thing or get away or yeah. It's just a move wrench. It's got to be like him. K. One fatalities right those are the iconic owns. Somebody is going to get their head and spine rip-off. Nobody's going to blow up the world probably not all that in the next seen everything back to all that that'd be amazing. Jack's gets super huge just every scene scenes that don't have fighting in them with someone killing someone else and then just like everyone's alive at the that would be the true to mortal combat. Yeah I'm guessing dragon fatality okay sure as the big kind of <hes> Kung lower king king the big Lou king that in two yeah the relation Armageddon Annihilation Armageddon was the game that's right. Do they only make the two movies yeah okay because they say there could have been like made for T._v.. Movies or something sense now. There was like defenders of the realm the T._v.. Show there was some there's a cartoon also and then they just announced that what's his name from the radio. Hey displayed in sub-zero. Yes I the rain but that seems things I hear about the raid that sounds like appropriate casting yeah to me if they just make a kick ass Marshall movie where everyone is dressed up in mortal kombat outfits like ridiculous yeah. That sounds sounds fantastic. Boorda combat stole that from cool do it. I saw the footage going around on twitter. Recently of Joe Lieberman from the congressional hearings ninety-three to the two fatalities they opted showed Congress were the head ripping and canine his heart. Okay thank goodness. You're probably the to say those two. I'm GONNA say those are those to be in the movie the to you would show in that setting this. This is probably the to like vote. Worst one punched enough. Someone's head well okay. It's comical though exploded ribcage. Yes I probably directories account areas where they did a director extra extra cages oceans edition hold hold down and hit play on your player and I don't know one of the things coming out writing. I thought wow yeah march twenty twenty one. That is a ways off. He's got the right like the space invaders movie that actually true yeah is he actually on that for how long ago was the asteroids movie going to be a thing years ago shopping yeah oh yeah twitter bio lists Resin Evil Saints Row Space Invaders and fear movie adaptation boy in addition the mortal Kombat how the tracker I'm mortal combat is owned by movie company. That's the way more likely to happen. Yeah Yeah what the fuck is space invaders movie other than just like gingy like generic alien million independent yeah. You just slap like maybe like Oh. There's a little pixel soul alien on the outside of the spaceship. Do they make the noise. Is that movie like it's just the fair Futurama thing. We did the last guy because he's shooting where he is instead of where he's GonNa be. It'll be just like that. Asteroids move you remember that yeah yeah all right. It'll be just like that. Asteroids game that came out and early access never happened then vanished tonight. Yes all right the whole thing just fucking disappear for news.

He asked me what Yo she eats. I said something to the effect of well. He eats fruits. The gels go on heat. I the shells and ended Goumas his response. Does he eat the poops.

Mike Zenia of is India say stack that Zinni what happened to the art of the deep had Sony's is the only one that feels good enough but it is far from traditional Microsoft's is trash and Nintendo has abandoned it minus the switch light have the harbor makers just forgotten the art of The D. Pad and do you think will ever ever get one worthwhile Microsoft's trash. I don't agree on a regular controllers. The elite controller I think is is really good Deepak. Even on the standard controllers got a decent a good click to us. We're talking about the S._e._C.. Yeah let's let things terrible yeah but the thing things xbox one. I got new problems with yeah. I think it's fine <hes> also typically. I will defend the e pat on the shock but playing all that M._k.. Then the amount of contortions like my phone was getting getting a little sore. Were after like five sets of K every day for ten days. I'll go away and building a cal. Yeah I think in walk sticks her universally better so I feel like this weird. I feel like the Tiger Wood Deepak is more nostalgic than anything anything I see that you were spotted playing Mario Maker with all those Mario levels with analog thick well. I mean the joy con deep good position thumb that's and it sucks and it's not all the analog sticks in that case but you're not telling me like if you were saying. Let's say a fighting game on a pad are using an analog stick to move well yeah specifically for like four I was because I was playing grappler and it's easy to surgery sixty real real quick on that okay but like I would run into issues where I was. I was like double tapping the tha dash instead of having the flick over twice I yeah I mean like nine nine times out of ten given the option option or ninety nine times out of one hundred. I'm going to go with an analog stick over a deep pad. I think deep has just kinda outdated like also if you think about most modern games than you're totally right I mean it's really only these kind of throwback genres that where you you even care about a deep hat anyway the one thing I will never want to give up a deep had forwards menus gave the good news day faster good point and also like I think that's why Nintendo was kind of right with what they did to. That's deep hat on the switch is because most games just use that PAT as four more buttons anyway for like a quick select or you know or yet getting around menu or whatever but literally yes but then a million people may platform this week and then like yeah in India development got into platforms and now he's got big. Suddenly we want good e- pads again for some of the like I said some of those throwback genres not necessarily throwback games but you know fighting games yeah. Are you playing bloodstained with a pattern stick deepen. I'm just accustomed news in the stick because for video games like the I would need the precision of to get some of those specials out and stuff stuff like deep then I'm using my league controller there with the weird thing. It just feels great thing. I've ever really that it's okay interesting. It feels like I think you might like it because it is a hybrid of the two things in a weird way. Speaking Fighting Games gave from Brazil. I was watching a show where maximilian was a guest and he was asked a question that I would like to throw throw a use scientists. What would you do for the next Capcom fighting game? I loved his ideas. He basically said in a perfect world he would make a type of Capcom all-stars starting with a smaller entry point that is less than sixty dollars to get people people in and keep expanding over time as killer instinct did in a realistic world the best idea would be to go for an N._B._c. four improving on what M._v._p.. Three did now that they can bring back the X. men but what they will probably end up doing history fighter six so his wish would be for them to either. Go back to an Alpha style to D. or go full on realistic like M._k.. Maybe with the R. E. engine arguing this re fighter five looks too much like four and it's a style that might be done <hes> I realized that verse suggestion especially the point about getting in like if you make like twenty fifteen twenty dollar fighting in that has like six to eight characters capcom care and it's a good like it has to be good but if all of those things are true. That's like an amazing way to get people in who are like Oh i. I liked the street fighter. The thing that like you is surprising that we haven't seen more of it and when it has happened happened is usually been kind of on the fringes a killer instinct probably like the one has a major franchise but maybe killer instinct does that we are. We call that a major anyway because I think they play thing made a lot of sense and was really off the best right out of the gate. Yes wow right forgotten the yeah the definitive edition of that game pass Pope Pretty soon here finally yeah I think that the the Capcom versus Capcom <hes> I would love to see that like the tappin butter fighting yeah streetfighter just about to say who's your eight four four three five or make sense to me. We've seen CAP cockfighting evolution or fighting Jan yeah that wasn't review Charlie Honda Guile Mile Scher Zinke. You need a grappler in there yeah but you also need like a bad guy. You need like Seagal or Bison in Oregon Mascot for you the I think you're bad guys in all new character okay and that gives you some wiggle room there in terms of like who you make on the playable Robin. I'm going to say ball Rog. That's my fourth really yeah yeah. I think you need one of the original five Sh- shadow blue bad guys just a buzzer choice I would support. I would think that would be cool. Yeah trying to not like we're retry in this scenario. We're building this game in a way to to be good for people who aren't necessarily super into the fighting seen people whose last fighting the game like shoot writer. Maybe two or four yeah working backward from there. Yeah I guess yeah if you're looking at the character selection that way. I was thinking about it more in terms of archetypes of like yes gyles charged character. Chunlai is a mash character thing happened. I'm not saying you know review is fucking is the Ri- You of that game and then I would think a grappler but then if you're if we're talking eight total grappler had architects the other four so yeah who the mega man to make a man in Dante Guard just because people have been wanting him in a proper street forever's three more that revenge and in <music> was the top down one the one that had that's fun talking about Magar N._B._c. to write three threes. I thought I'd seen him somewhere. Still the Union yes. He is probably a final fight. He's the guy no hunters again was that the monster think calicoes big enough to be fighting game character five Pelicans and the highest selling selling video game mosser stuff in there that able Raffles Super Combo does not gonNA make around. Give me a couple of deep polls who want in this game. I want the car from speed grumbler the dude from black the tiger gene from hand yeah but yellow monster with red eye I demand he's called Seton Castle. The big yellow monster double. I Want uh-huh like most of all in this may be speaks to my feelings on the versus games or at least the marvel versus Capcom Games is I would want all new takes on not like characters who are not fighting game characters but have appeared in fighting games i. I want fresh takes on those. I don't want mega man to play like he has played in yeah. No I want an all new. Take on mega man agree. I want an all new. Take on dont`a like these these characters appeared in the versus games like the fucking slate clean and start fresh rush with a you know a new system that is because I also think like if we're talking about this in terms of dry trying to bring new people in this is not some Juggle Combo versus game though this is more grounded like a traditional streetfighter and so I think you would want to have fresh takes on a lot of that stuff you probably would come to some of the same conclusions over again but at least like starting fresh going okay. We're putting this move in because it's a move that mega man does not because it was in this previous this game and give it different properties or make sense for for that system interest if we're talking something along the lines of streetfighter six the most well the biggest thing that you need is a system because ever since three third strike had the Perez more that had the focus tax five has reskill V triggers kind of like propor- these as the start here and then build the characters out from those things right. You would need to figure out what that big new thing is sowing the be what if few just made Alpha four and just built on the Alpha systems which some of the like the V. Counter is kind of Alpha counter right <hes> I think that is definitely true for the hardcore street our audience but I didn't realize agreed with him until he said this. I feel like one of the things working against five so much that it does at a glance look a lot like for our obviously if you if you play him a lot you can easily tell the difference but lake right in my mind thinking back from three to four was so yeah mental also time was it was a long time but also about like four had that distinctive look with the ink staff and everything and in my mind five just is lay my memory. It's like more of that. There's nothing to really set it apart. I wanted to go back to I want them to dry influence from from from games like guilty gear the that keep that to D- looking animation but still in Lug at three engine they can still have that effect and still make it look to D I go back to so that I haven't haven't been a huge fan of the way that you know the model so since four forebade a lot of sense of the time yeah it's totally did and it hasn't aged super yeah well it end yeah. I guess I guess that's a decent point that five is just kind of here's more political characters like it's maybe stylishly a little different but representation of these big feet tests vibe as four yeah something to set it apart but also trying to hearken back you know when you look at the strider two models and what if they were pulling all and exaggerated just so you know they're made sense. I like to yeah brush style that was that was a nice flourish. Yeah and I don't think five looks bad in motion. I think it'll just not that distinctive sure yeah. It's the thing about three men as much as I you know that was someone asked me separately like hey did you guys just to cover arcade games back. In the day I started thinking about it and it was like it was such a limited but I do remember like we heard about an arcade that had streetfighter three and went and go to go seek it out and play it having never seen it in motion before and that that I well like wow that's a lot of frames also. I don't like any of these characters true. It is a cool engage really amazing looking game. It's got style especially by the time they got third. Strike on. You know like the stuff just a just a killer looking game like music art ever yeah. That thing came together <hes> if they could do that but I think yeah what I think what you're saying probably is that that guilty gear her like going more in that direction but also weirdly enough. I'm super into the idea of make it look hyper realistic like mortal Kombat models kind of do I'm against that that does the Brad. You've got a laptop screen shots of streetfighter the movie the game because that's what it would look like it would dope degree leading blood out as Ken. I'm going to save that four tekken versus streetfighter eight five okay fair enough I would be way into a weird realistic approach but also if if they went that guilty gear ask route of the really good looking to like three that reads as to d and then went very like anime with it not in terms of game player you know our speed or anything like that but just in terms of just like the quality of that art the quality of those characters high-quality well. I mean like okay I mean like make it if what if it looked like fucking izaak level of fucking like made way too much attention to every little facet of this model role that this is more what I mean that'd be pretty cool that would oria there's go back to these artists literal actual Tutti and that's the catch those like so yeah and can you do that. You know trying to sell games to a modern audience. I think that's that's kind of the thing that and it's a little separate from this but you know the discussion around what kind of what fighting games need to be in all the sort of stuff like you always have to filter through like Capcom not making games for the F._T._c. they're making games because they want to sell millions of copies of those games too much wider audience and they've been. I'm getting back to doing well at that the last two three years finally after fighting but yes I feel like happen on those kind of like lost in the woods for few year right monster happened in the remake and like they're kind of doing it against the answer is obvious and we answered this. During this week's rankings fighters you have to your three toggles right you want to be able to sidestep yes or no how'd you guys feel about their their their model the pricing model the season passes and ten one dollars for stage of the costume I don't I don't want the stage in costume prices. I think our way out of control and because that stuff is so ancillary. It's like stuff that I want but not the prices they're charging is like no way they were trying to actively kept me away from the beginning talking about how you can get anything in the game with fight money but the amount you have to play to earn one thing maybe character or one stage yeah exactly like that's that's free to play level of grinding per game that came out at sixty dollars. It's not was broken launch. Well yeah all for sure. I think the season pass stuff for characters. I think that's a pretty well worn territory. At this point like the pricing I think makes sense as a twenty reach snow. They were more of the case thirty or forty yeah yeah. It's like eight dollars. There's a character or something like that like that doesn't seem out of control but at the same time I think that there's room to wiggle in terms of what depends like hey can you reach a more massive audience by having a cheaper or starter edition of the game almost like fighting layer did okay of and they kind of badly yeah like you could have and this is how dead or alive ended up in a backwards way. Just it's like hey. Can you charge sixty dollars if you go in there and pay you a full games price worth of money than give me the full games price worth of stuff but also there's an addition like the core fighters that has just straight up free that maybe you back act or into it that way and I think the transition path going from core fighters to full if you went there piecemeal route. The money doesn't work out in a way that makes sense anymore but something that is a hybrid of that but have them the money actually work could see them. Yeah I think that's the you need to be able to get people in their playing also people that are not going to be great at these Games always need more people to play against that are at their skill level and when you make those games free to play or <music> are hyper easy for people to try your kind of making it more likely that people are going to be on boarding all the time and so you've always got fresh meat more or less you know and that's I think the problem with long-term I'm fighting. Games is like if I go place five right now. It's people that the people playing that game online anymore are people that have been playing it for a very long time much longer than the likelihood of me having a good outcome not necessarily winning or losing but having fun to significantly reduced from where it was at launch streetfighter five totally I mean granted there. There have been sales where they're practically giving that base game those that are really good times to play it began you do get that influx of kind of new blood exactly but if you're making a game free and then throw some deals on it on top of that you've you've kind of dropped that barrier even further and I think that that that can only help with the games kind of long term health as an online game. I will say anecdotally really good time to get into a fighting hiding game. If you have never done is right after Yvo when everyone gets really heightened so like after watching it and they're like Oh man I wanna go we download. This game like that. First Week is so many people. I bet there's always a huge spike of up immediately. Oh I if I probably that's me that's that's my arc. I wonder what Capcom will do with fighting games next. What what their next move of is when they do it? Will it be the same faces doing it over there. He Yeah Division League Yeah Yeah that's almost external right then almost then it is like hey we are washing hands of this and now outsourcing it to an external team. We still care very much about it but they moved. Some people remember some key people in place from Capcom oversee associate or anything like they have someone in charge of E. Sports of course yeah I'm thinking about more in terms of lake future development of fighting is are we going to back out there or is it time for yeah. It's it's probably time for fresh blood at Capcom when it comes to trading fighting games and then making some of these decisions. It's maybe Ben time for that for a while right so I think he might be right so I'm curious that's right now if if they come back out and have another game and it's the same crew <hes> same pitch like they marched out Samar yeah you know what type of credibility is that announcement GonNa have right at this point so it was Lou Bucks. We're just getting into these things grief heard. They're awesome. Everyone talks about you. Guys love to be surprised. I wonder that's that's that's their new mechanic rise. One next email from Coltman San Jose my girlfriend and I are considering going to California extreme and I asked her if she would ever own arcade cabinet being familiar with games and such as myself asked the obvious question will how big of a cabinet is it. We then proceeded to have to very separate conversations. I eventually realized she was confused. She believed that anarchy now believes that archaic cabinet is a dumb name telling me if you can't put anything in it why is it called a Cabinet T._v. and despite explaining that it's because it opens up and how the form factor is. She refuses to change your opinion so I put the question to you. Why are they called Arcade captain? He's got a door right at the bottom that you directly stuff stuff inside if you monitor boxing yeah isn't there a lot of empty spaces cabinet yeah you totally can put things in there. It's got an arcade board stored in there. Yeah you know true. It's got a T._v.. Three top-heavy yeah there's lots of stuff that goes may not be front accessible cabin. I mean they didn't they used to stereo cabinets like like if you had a stereo like you couldn't put anything in there because they're already stereo in there. <hes> I think cabinet back in the seventies and eighties when these things were terms were coined. Yes cabinet meeting mental different different thing that it doesn't that's my cabinet. I think that is true. Let's see where's the person seem Alex. WHO This person Alex is last week? He goes talk about your experience watching demolition Derby so I thought I'd share mind driving in one new. It's pretty long email but it's good. My family has a history of driving at our local county fair in Indiana. So for my eighteenth birthday my parents bought me an old junker junker and my dad and I spent the summer strip down and getting ready for prime time cool. Nobody knew we. I'm sorry nobody we knew had driven for the past several years which will become important in a bit so anyway we print it out the big list of rules and painstakingly made sure Arbroath drove reliably and wasn't going to get us disqualified the rules include stuff like you can't reinforce the body reframe at weapons relocate important targets like the radiator and you have to remove anything from the inside that isn't bolted down down or otherwise strongly secured imagine our surprise when we showed up to the event check in and the people who were supposed to check our car for compliance barely even looked at it of course the regulars who had driven the past few years new this would be the case and exactly what they could get away with. which which was everything weapons on the car yeah? It's a it's a racket. It's real. It's my radiator. A minor concussions you know a minor concussion caused by fire extinguisher coming loose and flying into my head. Oh some whiplash rush and one missing wheel later I somehow made it to the final heat where it became clear that my poor ten cam held together by aluminum duct tape hopes and dreams would not hold up to the reinforced tanks. I found myself surrounded by blaze of glory. I made a kamikaze run for the first guy I saw my car. Immediately died and I sat out the rest of the round with the best seat in the House I would one hundred percent do it again by the way those wooden sticks are for the drivers to break themselves to to break themselves to signify that their car will no longer start okay thereby surrendering the heat you would do this to save yourself or your car from further damage while you're a sitting duck. The one part of the car that you are supposed to reinforce is the driver's side door and you also have to paint it's stark white. If anyone makes intentional contact with the driver's door or a car with the stick broken they are qualified and the white paint will come off and they'll know exactly it was all right the included some pretty good pictures of his time cool in the mud so the way the rules are enforcing demolition derbies at least in Petaluma as I understand it who knows if that's compliant right real place is that they are enforced after the fact like yes. There is a loose inspection when you show up your car win but it'd be no it becomes more of a it's a good way for people to earn money. After the fact is is they win and then a bunch of people challenge them and say he's got cement and his door and then the judges go over like art. You've been accused of cheating. We have to strip your fucking door apart and look for it and then they don't find it and then the challenge. There's a fee if you challenge someone you have to put up one hundred bucks or something like that well and then if you pass the challenge you get that hundred Bucks Ooh so it was like a good way to earn dinner. You know some some beer money. After the fact <hes> was to pass those challenges which reality he meant that the people just had to get better at hiding the cement or they had to get better at like hiding their shit. You know so yes absolutely rampant. Rules were made broken man. That's Derby live actually started dazzles Herbie life as a lifelong derby. Fan People tend to get seriously hurt in those things or is it pretty well patrol so I was in one and my neck hurt for about two weeks is totally worth. It was fucking terrible but it is like a whiplash sort of thing the other thing you run into and I don't know but like a lot of those drivers know each other super well and aren't really looking to hurt each other but if you are an outsider coming in who has not driven in some years looking like fuck that I could see that and and completely take him out yeah I could tell like the the older dude with a fifty year veteran was like kind of the key player and they were like Kinda played around him and like doing a lot of team of attacks with him and stuff and I could tell like oh they'd probably know him the student forever like respect right like they're not gonNA fuck each other up until it gets down to the end yeah and they've made that agreement ahead of time. There's a lot of in my experience. There's a lot of bullshit like that as with most as with visiting yes yeah you got got to keep the graveyard. Dogs strong exactly definitely concrete the doors Jesus. That's what I'm saying. If you're going to hear one weapon to your demolition Derby car what would it be puzzle right. I don't know flipping back because it's like the lady missed weapon but it's the most efficient yeah I would want probably a really strong spear or set out of spears that gun well something that you can shoot into a radiator whether that's sticking out of your car or something like that but you WanNa get that radiator shot Bala crank rip it out yeah sure yes something shoots in harpoons comes out with barbed like something would pull out a radiator or make sure the radiator is leaking like a motherfucker yeah so the thing they have equipped in every car in fast and furious strong into something that would probably probably be yeah. That'd probably get a very effective. I'm trying to think like a bus all you could shred tires with it and that would you popping tires like that. It's hard to get around like that's mud but you're still going to be able to ride on the rims a little bit not for well. It's on a mortar. What would it shoot guns a small cannonball okay yeah I think something that would they would take the radiator would probably be the like actually if that was definitely the thing that guy was calling out the most radiator damage because steam would be pouring out or water just coming out the bottom just pops of tire pop and so loud there was fire? Dude had like fire tubes to shoot fire out but nobody caught fire. There's always like U._C._A.. Flash of fire just peeking taking out from under a hood for a minute and everyone shit they went out there and take care of female comes in from John who he describes as aged forty two and a half. You wouldn't believe how many emails we got about pigs in a blanket like holy crap really Oh yeah. Oh yeah we that came the entire never seen so. I've never seen so many people email in about one subject before this is the one that I picked. I was listening to the section of Episode Five Ninety One with my jaw agape in horror or one email or wrote in and asked for the bond cast understanding of what pigs and blankets are to my astonishment. Two varieties were mentioned one on pancake based one pastry based. Neither of these varieties describe a true pigging blanket which as we all know is a sausage wrapped in Bacon roasted and served with Turkey Christmas lunch. That's a pig pig or any given Sunday. Hey if you're from the north of the U._K.. That's pig pig yeah. You can't wrap a fucking sausage in Bacon. That's not a blanket. There was once a time where America could be counted onto butter up that Bacon and Bacon up that sausage adding superfluous meet where no meat should rightfully hatefully be what happened to you. What's the description one more time? There was served with something oh well I think he's just a little flourish. A sausage wrapped in Bacon roasted and served with Turkey Christmas lunch. What does that well this Christmas dinner on Turkey Turkey dinner on Christmas Day for I think I think he's just saying it's a you know something to be served with? A big festive. Okay decadent meal. Okay is the idea the vast vast majority of people who wrote in said it was a sausage wrapped in Bacon vast majority. That's I mean they're all from the U._K.. Get Mad you know a blanket implies warmth and Pillowy we cover which croissant and a pancake both that's like having this is basically like having a blanket made out of human skin. Yes exactly this is the analogy which is pretty warm yeah well what interpret here now I experience. We made it better. That's we made their best right folks. Someone else's thing you'd be made a good. I've take their pigs in a blanket and put it in a blanket peak in a blanket and yeah that sounds like the best of all world xactly could get into that and then deep fry it sure yeah with US ticket butter yeah okay. This is butter yeah email from Lee just finished reading console wars while on holiday I own a mega dr when I was around forty years old but obviously wasn't old enough to remember the rise on fall of Sega in detail so this read was really interesting to me. What part of the really stood out was how close Sega of America came to partnering with Sony on the playstation and then again after say Sega of Japan had blocked that partnership getting the technology that eventually went into the Nintendo sixty four? I can't help but think how different the landscape would be now if either one of those alliances had come to fruition which leads me to my question from your experience being close to the world video game development and being slightly older than me in the early nineties were Japanese corporations really that stubborn from this book and further Google Research. It seems like they'd happily off their noses to spite fight their faces Sega was literally their own worst enemy. Yeah I mean and and and yes still races. I had to look this up to make sure because like the story of Sony Approaching Nintendo about video game system is well known but I had no idea that after that fell through then went to Sega which is apparently what happened. That's what he's talking about here but say could have been involved in the playstation if not Nintendo pretty wild think of think think about it might have been good sonic games no not but think about it. Platform Mass on its jumping flash was sonic be worse the sonic get any better once he was on disk no but my Sonic C._D.'s based on exceeding he had a good point is like if like if Sega is behind this console then they need to have their mascot games be the best shit and they're going GonNa have the resources board in imagining like Mario Sixty four but with sonic and shit like that anybody read council wars I need to I've always now. I've been to read that. I don't know what he's talking about there. With the sixty four technology that SEGA almost got their hands on there was like another. That's the S._G._I.. Stuff that I don't remember this pathetic surround that I'm not familiar with that but like like the Saturn was like famously like the complete wrong thing to make yeah like they thought they should make council focused focused on Tutti Games <hes> at the time that the playstation was coming out completely completely misread the market so yeah totally were their worst enemy oops Tony from Chicago. I wanted to comment on last week's email regarding malt liquor finally as an employee forty yesterday what kind titanium Takata one nice here ranked what hurt at ranked well number one. Is that a beer or a malt liquor mult list. It's new oh well as an employee for twenty years at a beer distributor. Hurricane is or was an ebb product that we haven't carried in some years. I assume he means either yeah. Hurricane high gravity which which stemmed from the former is a decent seller here mind you it sells nowhere near as well as Cobra we sell ass loads of King Cobra for a natural ice and bud ice. There's also natty rush which is gross and has fruity flavors. ooh What I would be happy to respond with any other beer related topics in the future. How do you run Eddie? Rush sounds like an energy drink google. The phrase natty rush start thinking jolly ranchers for whatever reason to like that type of fruity. I first match for Natty. Rush is on the site called Total Frat Frat move dot com. If people who advertise it's advertised as Watermelon Smash Hurricane Punch shows this like saint I'd special brew which was like Fruity Malt liquor because is saying that special special brew appears to be you get an ongoing is with those are very jolly rancher colors yeah yeah criminal eight percent gross yeah. I'm in my teeth hurt so you know following on from that <hes> Alex for North Carolina trying to decide to start on his email. It's a long email entertaining. It'll start here. I thought since y'all like talking talking energy drinks and since bang has become more popular worldwide recently thought you'd baby enjoy this a bit of background I worked in these supplement retail industry for about ten years and it was during the last year a speed dealer dealer during the last two to three years that bang energy drinks came out and took the supplement world by storm as remember the day we gotta shipment of the very first and at that time only flavor of Bang in Stock Champagne Champagne Cola. I write out there anymore. No one thing called rose risky Rosa Risky Brazilians but there's some Rosa flavored bang. You're scared I'm writing eating in because I thought you guys would get a kick out of the C._E._o.. Behind the energy drink itself Mr Jack Oac the dude is a little insane and it shows. I bet his instagram bank is Instagram Bang Energy Dot C._o.. E._e._o. filled with videos of him talking into a microphone with tongue a ton of bang energy shots drinks and powders on the table as as well as what I can only assume is a green screen that has giant cans of the drink and logos goes everywhere trying can't in one of these videos the probably sixty something you're old walk looks directly into the camera and says welcome to the Bang Revolution. No Caffeine means post. I'm sorry no caffeine means more post exercise pain so stay woke that he then he proceeds the dive into a research study funded by his company on the scientific benefits of Caffeine and exercise. A second video has a skit with two models one drinking bang because she believes doing so you will get her everything she wants. In life got to the T._v.. Anchor saying that she's won the lottery later on she finds a diamond necklace before her friend tells her she's being ridiculous. She gives away her bang steps out into the street and his immediately hit by a car. Oh like God. That's what happened to me. Being in the industry. I've heard lots of stories about this guy as my company hosted an event for managers every year and he was always there in his probably two hundred dollars silk buttoned up shirts and sunglasses drinking a bang with a crowd of Bikini Akini models hired by his company walking around him at one point. I heard he told one of the model that she wasn't showing enough cleavage and to find another top that would help show it off good good quality. There's more weird stuff that I was solid dude yeah. There's more weird stuff that I've heard but honestly you can get good sense of who this guy is from his social media presence alone. I encourage you to do so for a few laughs Jeff. This guy kind of looks like a coke doubt Dave meltzer okay basing all I'm saying is this man is the visionary who brought us supercrew eighteen so I think we need to because this is this is. This is the same company. That made red line isn't it oh is it I believe so okay. I want to the bank. The makers of the legendary read this like fucking. Come on the one time I'd to drink a red line of thinking I was going to die so so well you know and the one time I drink of being energy. I thought I was going to die banging shit. I'm not I'm not a huge Fan Bang. No thought it was important that people knew where their energy during supplements are coming yeah. That's that's no good old-fashioned rockstar no like a same person. That's your old man's energy. Go Fuck Yourself Pay Bang normal creating sorry old-fashioned fork you all ban. This engine runs on Co Q. Ten yeah the rise of Bang has been strange. I duNNo. It's just it's it's everywhere fast debt. It really did which I guess you know. He's saying he's around for two to three years. Also he said it took the industry by storm right but it seems like something that yeah it was kicking around. The supplement side of things because red line was always that we're thinking just it's like Oh. This comes from a supplement company. That's what's fucked up yeah. It's got the real stuff in it shouldn't be driving exactly. It's like this is no I should be. I should be at least pretending to work out if I'M GONNA drink one of these <hes> so congrats to them for finding like a marketing hook to make that fucking shit but yeah I wonder where the line is with that stuff and if someone will eventually okay these things are actually legit unsafe well. It's banned in the U._K.. Right I knows what Harris forest has to say about rap is reliable source because the only person I've heard that I saw it from okay. I believe that they found super creative to be that was the the hook was that that was maybe creating was like there was a flavor of sobe that had creating for a while so creating in drinks sold convenience stores and not workout places and that's not new super creating still kicking yeah. It's still yeah yeah I mean they still make snapple to snapple timeless US yeah but like no one's there was a time wind snapple was being talked about a great deal and they had all their ad campaigns. All this stuff is because people got more conscious at the sugar snapple about Arizona. Yeah I thought for a while they were going away like they get went bankrupt or something like that. I heard they were actually being pulled from shelves and you guys they're still around the thing that the shock the shack soda that was made by the same company as Arizona the shack sodas sold so poorly Orley that they just started emptying the cans putting Arizona wrapping around it and filling them back so you could like some Arizona's you pull off the label and just see Shaq Shaq on their golden ticket. I Know Yeah Bonus Shaquille couple more quick emails Daniel from Atlanta. Did you see that Gigolo face paid can defeat facial recognition technology. Yes yes does juggle a tech. Make it it into watchdogs three. Yes totally there. You have it all right. Daniel from Los Angeles last email choose for the last time platoon to has its final splat fest scheduled for this weekend who are final so for the last time. Choose your team team order or team chaos. I don't think team cast would care what the outcome of that. I'm just saying you're probably right. No because the one thing team chaos doesn't like order they need to defeat order true team chaos not organized enough to know what a simple tuned to is sit down in front of a TV. Put me down for water. Yeah I'll go on the order side chaos yeah Yup. I go to twitter dot com multiple times a day. Clearly you have this see but you go to twitter at a regimented like time and isn't that order annoy don't all right. I'm just saying you check it. Often enough is is it wants day. That's I haven't with more. That's order. Twitter is really the chaotic evil of Social Media Services Gross. He says P._S.. Why haven't more games done SPLAT FEST style events? 'cause it's dumb. I don't even like cool ideas a cool way to get people excited about your game right because I got people who are passionate enough to get out there on because I remember when flat for this was a relative new thing and people were just all over like ketchup mustard like crazy last one though this order chaos thing. I don't feel like ties into like I feel I gather people get very passionate about the condiments definitely make people argue about manning's cats and dogs this last one is maybe a little misguided but generally I I like the idea. I don't think it fits many other kinds of games streetfighter. That's an new-look splat moral combat had that whole chooser faction action they could just have in Ford faction and a Chevy faction doesn't think that they really do they did some branded ones for the swat fest stuff but transformers summers one stuff like that it wasn't like autobahns versus Septa cons but it wasn't like Ford v Chevy because then that's two brands yeah but those are the things they actually they should do fucking xbox versus playstation yeah okay and into no did say this is the final final swat fastened while wonder what's maxed shirts verse Skins S- platoon three probably right but does a free meals platoon three on the way no not before Arbs to get the priority St John's something someone on team order would say are. Are you kidding me. Chaos is John Road on. I'm saying the regimented. You can't do three before you do arms to. I think the existence of an arm arms to is the most chaotic of going. How could you do that with a socialite if fuck oh my God shit chaos while you have switches there you go you need third went to look at okay who through switches yeah? It's all bunch people out there desperately looking at the switch light announcement trying to figure out how they could leverage that into mario maker creation on a tablet type thing MTV at the same time hold my breath for that who knows doesn't seem on someone's going to recreate that Maude that cats kitty or whatever it was selling for switches which I wish wish someone what whatever they could they could develop some kind of companion mode that beams between switch. Oh which is something oh you mean like wouldn't Nintendo like they'll maybe they'll patch in a way to create on yes on one switch and they could potentially do something like that probably pretty wishful thinking okay that doesn't for emails and thus the show yeah. I've show coming up after show coming up after this okay. If you're watching live stay in this browser tab. Anybody got any other housekeeping business for we hear stuff going on this week. Yes streams and things yeah. I think <hes> some non-story media's trying yeah yeah. We're GONNA try and get a full squad together for this apex. Make ever done that in the sand room before I wanNA game last week so we gotta try to glorious was still possible. I got so hyped. Instill I'm so low level that it's matching with really low level P._S.. Four which is owned through games good great so be guitar all right.

Twenty twenty one. This is the first week a belt in third week of lic and this episode is lovingly entitled with this beautiful riff reckless with the power rankings. I'm your host sean. Duffy and i am joined by a full house tonight. We've got odin. Howdy howdy we've got in what's up. We've got jack's not tv slash. Jackson did you forget what you're talking like. I'm looking at your face trying to figure it out of course live from the studio. We've got canvas. Probably just want everyone to know that. Not only was i better on my prediction because rogue went longer undefeated than jackson's prediction of youtube. But i also beat jackson fantasy this weekend so granted. I'm writing a hiring own it. Just jackie i'm sorry odin changed my name to fuck jax Every week plane. On that. I do want to point out. I was my team. Name is constant losing games. I went up against meco whose team name was the five year plan and that changed halfway through the week. So meco i love you buddy. That was a great match. Meco absolutely kicked my ass the pick band system. Yeah he band out. Eighty five of my point so i got two hundred points from vin i picked. Mfe played enough twice. Yeah everyone else's enjoying using the sleeper app or whatever fantasy after using. Let us know how you're doing what's going well. What's going poorly in our community server would love to see some other comments there because we've got a lot of it. I think the fantasy league channel might be our most popular one. Just because it's so fun to shit talk other people in it speaking of shit talking. Let's talk about what's happening around the world starting with the l. p. l. edward gaming in first place still undefeated seven zero fund plus phoenix right behind it. Seven and one r. n. Angie right behind them at six and one team w e and billy billy five and three and you gotta go all the way down to tenth place and even three and three for top e sports and three and four pursuing gaming. Very interesting stuff happening over in the l. P. l. but let's hop over to the l. c. k. dom juan gaming currently leading the league at seven and one a single loss to the last place fred. At or as we all affectionately refer to it as bre jen. Gee hawa life e sports and dr x. Are all tied second place at five and three two losses behind first-place don juan and finally kicking their butts into gear with a faker and his oops so lane team is t one at four and four and fifth-placed tied with k. T. roaster on the up and up and don't start believing in them because that's when they come crashing right whatever you do not do not alright we got. We got to just give a little. Oh my gosh here. To the king returning to the mid lane because faker with the two victories that happened this week now has four hundred. Freaking wins in the l. c. k. And six hundred k. Games in total which is just insane. He basically has what's crazy to me. He has a sixty six point. Six percent win rate. He literally is the unkillable demon king in. It's phenomenal and i love everything about that. Do you know what else is phenomenal. And that i love everything. About jack's i do. Do you want to tell us about it. Sure so last week after we put out our episode the c. Dropped this amazing. Emo rock som- reckless with my heart. And it's a fucking banger. Everything about it. The music video itself which is so breaking benjamin like it's just it's beautiful. It's on point if you haven't enjoyed yet. You should definitely get on it. Go to the youtube channel and turn it on parental screen. Turn off the lights. Maybe put some headphones or just turn up the volume all the way and if you're speaker happen to up to eleven i think that ian would definitely appreciate it all right. We've got some not so great news and this Caused quite a bit of controversy last week. As i think it should have. According to travis gaffer d- some lcs team owners have actually asked riot to to remove the import restrictions on the fuck developing talent in your own region. And my also. I also know who one of them is boom no longer fan of that team. Oh shit so was a team. You used to be a fantasy type type tracking. My assumption is that it's the teams that were willing to spend money at this point. And so i'm looking at csm. I'm looking at cloud nine. Probably potentially team liquid as well. Although i don't think team could is really run into that much of an issue. I don't know who the hell they really upgrade at this point with an import except for maybe tactical. But i think that's arguable. I think guessing those threes. Probably the safe guests i will say has money. I don't know actually one hundred percent who requested it. But i don't know if anybody caught this was like probably that beginning of last year. Twenty twenty spring split awfully actually had a show that she was doing and she had two people on. It was e. g. and fly quest jennifer point and tricia. Forget her last name. But fly quests ceo tricia and it was tricia. That actually brought it up. I think oddly asked this question. Or maybe twitch acid and tricia specifically said yes. I think that we should remove import restrictions. I would love that as an like. That would make us give us like such a better chance of winning worlds. And i was like well. Yeah clearly anymore like okay. I'm just reminded also in this past week. Awfully frost and put out an amazing show. Go watch their new that bleeping east sports show or whatever they called it. It's hilarious oddly infrastructure and our great together. I love it. And they have everyone's favourite freelancing shout castor now kenya's is not on an unfortunately but it is captain flowers who does join them. So it's very very fun. Definitely check that out. Yeah good reminder. By the way steve that it was in fact something that was brought up last year and it was a fly quest. Gm who did bring it up and she's right. Yeah if we filled the whole region with korean players and paid them more than they were gonna make an l. c. k. Yeah there's probably a better shot that they win worlds. But then you just run into the starcraft to problem and the starcraft one problem of na's as represented entirely by imports. And we're already struggling with that. The obvious argument against it is just like at that point. Are we even north america anymore if all we do is import five players that are not north american players. Like what's what's the point of having any leagues. Right like i i. What does that mean for. You does e you then have to lift up their restrictions in order to be competitive does every region have to lift their restrictions to be competitive. Like i don't think it's something that you can just do in either like if it happened here that would have far reaching consequences. Absolutely wasn't one of the things that made this rule come up the whole ellen q. Situation like yes. There's there's a lot of precedent that goes into all of this. Yeah any kind of is the reason why the rules exist and they're the ones that want to tear it down. Also the president of starcraft. You really don't want import rules. Lifted it ruined the starcraft choosing hard to cheer for hometown team. If you know that they had not really hometown at all. And there's there's certain differences that you can take from sports like you know if you're a fan of the los angeles lakers you don't care if all those players come from l. a. because they're representing your team your region your city and there's just a there's a different nuance i think there with this whole like the storage implications of it being a city based team of you. I think this is a much more global thing like it's a much like there's so much regional pride with league right like inverse z you versus the korean giant versus the l. p. l. like fucking insane players ray like there's so much regional pride. I think that goes into it as well. You know what else might be a little too proud would be c. l. mid lehner according to wild turtle on a conversation he had last week with i will dominate. He may have accidentally leaked. That plo belter was benched for the weekend of attitude issues seal management said that that was not the case that they were trying out. Rj as their mid. Lehner i think based upon some of the tweets. We've seen from plo shelters girlfriend yet. That doesn't seem completely accurate and wild turtle maybe had the best scoop on at all we got to see. Rj in the mid lane for three games of dominance. And we will talk about those later but this is a. This is a struggle. When you have your veteran middling talent who should be the rock on his team until boxes shows up getting benched or removed from the starting squad before the split even starts we seal g have conducted an investigation into the situation. We would like announce that we have discovered that belter is indeed not negative gaming. Not what he was benched There's a classic me well. The funny thing is archie was not doing well in academy the. He didn't look that good. I had to cast actor. I didn't cast this game. But i was doing research for a game that i was going to cash where he was playing. Victory went like one in seven. I think his overall katie a. is like a round one in academy right now like he is not looking good. So how bad it built their look that they're like is this the guy dude shelters and they're just like fuck. I'm on shit team again. I don't wanna goddamn do. The city war share fights. He's dug around thinking okay. I'm getting backup while turtles gonna show up. We've got brock's coming. He's a veteran talent. You know. I wanna play with them. I don't think he played with him on team liquid. Only there was any cross over there so like hey you know. There's some stability here management's willing to do some stuff fins coming in. He's a solid looking top. Lehner certainly better than what. I've been playing with previously And then like none of this actually comes to fruition. It's honestly amazing like steel. Jeez the only team that can do this on a consistent basis just like look like this year after year after year after year. Like it's to the point where this is sealed. Jeez thing ray immortals or make an argument man. Don't put past astrology at this point as well. I'm going to argue at least in -til may this be a bad color for teams feels bad. -til bed true. I do think it's a little bit. You know chromatic scale or anything here but We're going to move on from this because if we should unsealed you too much now. I can't do it later Nuke duck has been announcing that it doesn't look like spring of two thousand and twenty one is going to be the year of the duck. He will be taking a hiatus for quote personal reasons. Magic felix is going to be getting his time to shine. We only saw him once as a substitute for fanatic last year. And now we're going to see him actually starting as a actual starting midlander for a team and hopefully he's got big expectations. People been talking about magic felix for years. He has some really big shoes to fill not in terms of what he's nuke. Duck has left behind but in terms of what people think he should be. And i hope everyone tempers them a little bit just like i hope everyone tempered them for fudge somewhat for perks like let him get his feet wet. Let them get into the pond. That nuke duck left behind because that ponds down there in tenth place to like this. He's started from the bottom and if he truly brings himself to the top like hot damn then we can start hyping them up but i hope he's able to step in with the correct expectations his team around him as able to really kind of soften and cushioned the blows that. I'm sure he's going to be feeling because his team sucks. So yikes speaking of things. That don't suck ian. What should all of our listeners be doing. Yeah if you have not already you should absolutely join the official league. Rundown community discord server.

Every week in the l. can become the most popular league of legends east sports. Podcast with your help by joining our discord server and doing your part to five stars baby and we're going to circle back to that. Don't you start taking diamond hands. Maybe speaking to somewhat diamond hands. Because they managed to snag the twitter handle at perks the woman from leicester is really enjoying her new found fame with the perks handle and fudge her own guinea pig. She had no idea what the heck league of legends was. I think we talked about it a little bit last week. But she's actually been doing some interviews and just kind of gotten totally into the scene. People embraced her. She's had some really good jokes along the way so very much enjoying this fun. Little dynamic is someone having no clue what's going on. I just got to say. I've been trying to like get into shout casting for about four years now. Grinding getting my social media account followers interacting with people on a daily basis posting every day. And god damn random. I mean i love her. she's great. She's holding all areas but she got like four thousand followers in one week at it. I was just sitting there like. Wow what am i doing. I could've spent nobody imagine putting in effort and work to get to where you are. That's gonna be next. She has a better chance. I do of shack. has this point. Obviously yeah probably yeah. I think you've got tough competition for that particular position. So good call. I think really the learning experience here is get a guinea pig. You big dummy. That's just an easy. The learning experience here is get super good players. Twitter tag they do. That's too hard just seems like the easiest part speaking. That's maybe not so easy. I was able to glimpse a little earlier today. Although i don't know if the tweet is still up one of c. nine's many content creators from behind the scenes. Not someone who's front facing actually behind the camera literally there were photographer was apparently part of a company. Wide layoff so nine. Apparently going through some stuff probably indicative of just how things function during the pandemic. i also think the fact that they own some other or some other teams in certain leagues cough cough. Maybe that have to do with large birds of prey involving games from blizzard and the money that those are desperately losing. Yeah some things may not be going so well behind the scenes over at cnn against some of the other larger ords so something to think about as we do see a potential for east sports bubble to pop doesn't look like it's approaching anytime soon just for league of legends but who knows pandemic has really changed a lot of shit. You've no idea i. I don't necessarily take gratification or like joy in watching like a game in a community like collapse but dude after the mad shit everyone talked about how overwatch is gonna kill league. Well who said that didn't say anything about that. I wanna make it very clear. I never said anything activision. Blizzard do not come after me. I didn't do anything. You can't touch me if we go seeing the rise and fall of an entire game and community and then league still chugging along strong goddamn did you love to see it. Do you know what else we love to see. Some really fun standings. All the way over the pond in berlin germany with l. e. c. action having its third week end and we got to see some very fun things at the top of the standings in fact checks. Who is our number one team in. L. e. c. as we all predicted. Of course it's rogue it's motherfucking rogue. We've got g to east sports right below them at five and two tied with as you predicted. Of course kanga. God team is also in second place. The best the soon to be first shock. Oh four clearly a men and then in fourth place. Of course we have. Xl mad lions and fanatic at four and three seventh-place. We've got s k gaming three and four misfits all the way down here in eighth place at two and five and down in the dumpster. We've got a strauss and vitality at one and six sas folles s with several s.'s. As ian learned we looked at the documentary today so rather than go through game by game. I just don't think it's possible and trying to make this an episode that you can actually listen to under two hours. We're going to go team by team. And kinda give a general gist of how the weekend went and point out very specific things that we thought were interesting enough to highlight and that are really deserve of it. So odin talk to me about rogues. I fifty fifty weekend of the split. Well congressman is went real long right after g two and i lost the bet we go into the next day against the same team killers shoko over four knocks down rogue with some genius. Play is really really good. Really good right now. See this team comp synergise so stupidly well with wral and what she does it's rogue. Had no chance here. Shoka had a fucking plan and they executed exactly like they wanted to. And it was brutal. I am excited to watch shull games. And that's a strange statement rogues comp If you didn't see the game ziya probably the most offensive eighty carry. You can pick in the metro right now with hsien so you got the shine. The shield on top of you. You're like this should be a pretty easy game for ensemble to play right. Know camille rela. J. for and oriana combo and case like this was built to go in and that was a really fun a cop. I speaking from the roadside. Like i actually still liked what they were trying to do like they still. Their draft on paper looks good. But chaka said we're going to throw out the meta and just pick things that combo well together and road was not ready for it amounts on game to watch. Yeah that's that's a positive. I think to takeaways rogue lost but it was against something that was pretty unprecedented so far in the l. e. c. I was gonna say that this. Also maybe a preview of the meta to come because gilead farmed like shit this game compared to his counterpart and they're nervous farming jugglers coming up soon soon. Gilead's just getting ahead of the meta just showing how much of a gaudy is impact the map forehead. Also be just a really rough game two. I will just say that. I don't like the recon is strong but i don't think that we're con was actually good here. They could have gone for other support options and he had a better chance but he didn't look that comfortable on the we've been talking about trimbe look in so strong and all their wins when we see this team behind. He is in some strange spots and he gets picked off in poor way he looks like even on a recon with ziya like it's hard to get grabbed. It looks like hillis. Yeah when hillis actually great. When trimbe is on point he looks great win. The game goes a little bit south. They look like they're hardening absolutely also played astrology. We don't have anything to say. I want to go into it. Just real quick for the stroll side because zanzibar played super speed scanner and then they had thrash at it was just such a solo q. Like i'm gonna place garner and get some cool. Looks the semi drag crossover. Don't trash man come on. that's my job gets. The astrologer isn't able to use their little cheese straps to pull it out. But that's okay. We'll get to them in a moment. Here rogue goes fifty fifty but up against their only losses against the second place team schulkin four k angus talked to me more about shock. Oh for his very good weekend. they're they're looking good man. I don't know what else to tell you. I mean coming off beating g to last weekend beating rogue this weekend. They're looking i. I know. I rank them high at the beginning of the season and i was serious about that but i was half mimi putting them second place. They legit might be like the best team right now. If not second best team. I think we already talked game against rogue so i guess i'll just kind of move on to the game against misfits. This was a shellacking. Twelve gold ahead misfits only got two towers. Yeah they got some of the dragons they were kinda stack in towards that but these just had no chance when schalken were able to win with a scaling composition they had things like the gangplank and the also scrapping in their early game and they were beating like. This is another off losing like. That's actually crazy. That chuck was able to beat that yet again. So i think it's just yeah i. I'm really hyped on shock. I hope that they can keep this momentum going. I do wanna talk. We're gonna maybe should wait until we get to misfits for this. But i do think this is a good game to highlight. I don't understand the olav. Pick and the double bird lane. This doesn't make a lot of sense to me. And this is the second time this day where we see the ziya. recon bottling. just get hard hammered an absolutely dismantled. It's just doesn't seem to be that strong on americans me because if you're trying to support the oh loss by providing some cc from the bottling way better champions that And yet again you're basically like recons. Your primary engage olaf can run at people but he doesn't have anybody to help them out so it's like olaf who's not full tank and then a recon being the backup. Yeah it's the. This was not a great draft from misfits. But i i guess who. Who is this. Cover misfits don't you worry. We're going to let our resident misfits fan have to do that as well but odin talk to us about. G2's two's hoof also fifty fifty weekend. Yeah but the fifty that was a losing one is maybe the one. That's more concerning so let's open the start of the week. We go right into vitality fucking quickies e win. G2's in here to fuck in wipe five talib's off the field. And then we go into the big match the real big match and they played reckless in my heart for the champion there for it again. We were all jackson. I in a bunch of other listeners. Were all in watch. Party for the fucking epic fanatic g game and wow volunteers are good champion. I mean this is an extremely wide book game into camille. Volunteers is extremely jamie. Indica me. I think that that was a very matchup specific execution that we saw there and yeah wonder was not prepared for that match up. I have to say real quick. I did not realize how much damage the volleyball old dealt. It's game what the fight really hard vulgar on of damage. He's basically just a juggernaut and he's up against a lilia. Zoe camille like any of those. He can just one shot if he's able to get on top of them. Even on the the postgame thread on reddit even says wide wipro player the game and going to point that out. This is how hard this dude win. This game got his own little notable thing on the guy. Also just i love how g to fanatic. This game was because it started off with fanatic. Going to hard in the top lane. And i i don't know if he died i think he did die. And then also bottling they go to hard like mickey flash pulverize headbutts. Hilly undercurrent hilly dis. Oh no g. Two or g do things and then literally a minute later. G to fanatic. Dives tops topside. Get kill their g to try outside and mess up the dive like oh no going back like the minutes minutes of the game. There were three kills multiple. Turn it dives. It was nuts. There were so many botched dives in this early actually absurd. It was absolutely amazing game. I if you're a fanatic fan you were fucking so happy this entire time. Your teams looking great again. They're number one nemesis and you don't need. reckless upset. goes three zero seven on the affiliates. Indicate which is a favorable matchup generally speaking but he does well. I do know my mind. All right so widow actually did the most damage in the game despite having a three zero seven. Felli us in a four zero seven zere at these on boulevard that stacks truly absurd sticks. Deadman's with trinity forest is like absolutely insane. You have basically three full health bars. Plus you're not right it's nuts. yeah. I'm pretty sure they nerve sticks on live So it's not as good anymore or something the at face value the yet just like the massive amounts of shielding is just unreal. It's so hard to stop like. Once it starts. The snowball goggles on played. A secret. do is the shielded gives is ridiculous. I definitely feel like volleyball champion. People forgot about coming into this year like he doesn't. He's not super awesome on any champions but he's really good into camille like there was so much talk about him at the end of last year. Just fucking altering people doing shit tons of damage. This is a huge comeback for that champion. And we're going to be seeing with a lot more. I'm pretty sure before we move on from g to kansas. You want to wrap this up. I guess i'm kind of background a little bit. Because it was so hype against fanatic. But i also just wanted to point out what we cover. The vitality matches also how g to they're complex. They're like they're playing quinn and arise. That's actually got a cool to see like it's been a while since we've seen like a hard committed one three one type of composition not just and rise but kuhnen rise with no. Tv's they had no teleport's on their entire team. Let's just so ridiculous that they won that it was such a fucking flex win games. I like quinn cabinet. Kill zero zero six plane. Sean penn in gold. Yeah yeah he got his double license at least and it was a license to kill the nexus. Because that's all he ended up doing. Let's move on from g to those are our top three teams. We gotta go and talk about the rest. Xl the boys the legends themselves returning to the rift. And i think giving a pretty damn good accounting of themselves this week. They went up against misfits and s k gaming to the teams. That are really the ground that you have to be if you want to become a playoff team and they did pretty damn well. The misfits game was super fun. And i know that jackson's probably gonna talk a little bit about this. As well cries on show. I hate jo goth and this game was a great example of why fricken hate this champion. It's so stupid it just gets to a big ball of death. And i'm so mad and angry. It doesn't really matter. Dan's really star this game. It's just anti. He's useless or you can't and he runs over your entire to ease of really good with the new items too like it's hard to kijek within items sticky chem tank or What's the slowing one. I forget the name ever for us. Yeah you can actually overflow frost frost the items getting buffed to it is. This weekend was also. I think the return of rocket. Nor scaring which i think was also a comment that was made on the reddit thread which i loved toray looked so good. Both these games leona against misfits and then up against s k gaming. He was playing the recon. And this is the only real good bird. Bottling that happens by the way is from this. Xl team over the course of really the entire weekend. Yeah there's really i mean. I liked excels draft. A hell of a lot better against misfits. I still don't like what they did with the olaf with really no support. But at least you've got a lot of dive with an leona there with you. You have these big beefy frontliners and that allows you to pick these ear and the zaia and just go ham. And that's exactly what they did. Check a lot got like maybe the least gracious scoreline of all time of one two and eleven on the zero but you know what he did a lot of damage. That's what mattered. The s k gaming match. I thought this was a little bit more interesting. Because of how dominant this was for excel and this was cries. Going onto a champ is traditionally a carey in groggy but playing it as a tank. And i thought this was awesome because this is the sort of champ. I expect him to be able to actually go into to display two different play styles because he's probably already playing it as a carry as he has in the past and he played phenomenally. He looked so good garage amazing hall. It was beautiful. Dan was on the jungle. Pantheon which i think almost has a one hundred percent win ratio this weekend. The only loss believes by g to with yonkers will leave. How many times it's fruit damn disgustingly broken champion right now. You like. he's so good. And what's really interesting in my perspective is. I don't even think he's that great in the jungle comparatively. I think he's really good in the jungle. But i also think if he's doing so well and excelling so heavily out of the jungle position whereas ultimate is really just a redirect around the map. Like shit dude. Maybe just be moving them into lane. Where i think he's actually a hell of a lot better. I think he's a very good. So many mid lanes that you don't get to play the game because pantheon's that's part of the this part of the good part about picking pantheon is that he's like a quad flex pick right. You can go into like four lanes theoretically The second game we'd get to see sheck a lot again on the really excels at these game scaling champs. He gets to the early game really well. I was really excited to. What's this really gotta care. It's so nuts. He's just sitting there in the back like Let me hit by soldiers and okay all right. Fine christ take the fucking kill fuck. You and patrick just goes off along. With the entire balkan tori really show show treats and jesuit time minute one. I was really excited for jekyll. Versus blue and it really didn't amount to anything. Blue struggled really get anything going. It's a really boring match up in the middle anyway. Excelled us that he blew it. You could even say he really blue balls it. Xl really had a good weekend. These are the two teams they absolutely had to beat. I think to cement themselves as a playoff team. And they're looking good and this is a team that is on the up and up. And if you're an excel fan get your spreadsheets out. Boys this is it all right. You know what we're going to split us up. A little bit fanatic. It's fanatic time baby. Jack's hit me. So we already covered fanatic verse g to it was great. Go watch that game fanatic also played versus astrology us. And that's really all. I have to say about played against strollers like it's just absolutely crush them like it's it's closer than it should have been in kills because fanatic plays sloppy and aggressive. But this was like a shaw also my team. This is basically astrology. Trying to challenge fanatic at what fanatic does were just like challenging fanatic at every corner fighting every time in fanatics like. What are you doing bro. White like why you can't do. We're fanatic like this is what we do. This is our thing fanatics like like bitch slap them rate and he's gonna three man all you and it's over on his ear like nikki actually just straight up and admit game fights one thing. I really did like about this game. We finally got to see samir again like she just has dipped from pro play. She was. I think really heavily prioritized like the first week of both action. And then everyone's like. Yeah this sucks. We're not doing this. Like this is so. She's very unsafe. Yeah she she works really well. Oh yeah go for it. I just i just remembered. This is also the game where we had self maids. Ooh dear just running through the based tanking turret shots just for fun literally sits under like under the turret. Taking no damage because turtle stands. I just like emoting. And then he's like. I guess your common. I guess i'll run away. It's so b. M. so absolutely on brand for fanatic and for self made specifically and something. That's possible because back in the meta does that specific bullshit b. m. better than anyone besides both food year. That was but it was hilarious. Yeah i think what's really interesting to me about. The pick is yes superstrong. Yeah homeless man running through base but the two players who really did the best on are probably the two best jugglers for each region at centurion. And it's a self made and they just be crazy on the they actually get ahead on like it requires an eye and an ear for the jungle itself to really pull off to the extent that they are. He's such a mechanically brain dead champion. Who farms fast. So you need to pass well and you need to have optimum gang timing so you can keep your farm lead to stay relevant as oublier which means the best jugglers accelerate crazy on him. Which i think is really funny. The dynamic we have ray on one hand we have. Ooh dear he's probably like one of the least mechanically intensive champions. If not the worst in the entire game right. And then like the other good raisin italy rate warwick is way more mechanically demanding than ever since rework true gary. He has the skill shot now. And it's hard to hit. It's legitimately count the around him. Really love like the contrast right. It's like season eleven season ten was like the season of lake. Fuck in every. Fuck this right. Everyone does too much damage. everyone has a dash. This is terrible. Now it's like dude back in the meta. This was meant to be man. This is leeann. Just run fast. I would walk your dashes on running. You say i would much rather have this than like the cali. Ereli attracts meadow or like everyone's got multiple. Lose all this mobility jumping around like that was awful like him. Hank is such a great item that they added in. It is pretty fun. It can be frustrating and its own way but it's a better kind of frustrating because it means things like oh hey navy might be is pretty good ally could become meta like having a wall to put down trundle things like that that are just so simple suddenly started to be like. Hey maybe these displacements are actually worth it. Yeah and it goes. It's it's very good Pig is very good at like demonstrating specific people's strengths rate. If you're really really good at the macro play in you're really good at like the the micro legs zoning running back and forth and like creating space right you can be super super effective on because he basically just off the entire enemy team and there's nothing they can do because like he's just going to run you down right So yeah it's i love it. All i can say is that expanded. The is probably like damn it this my time. Time all couldn't unfortunate for him but fanatic is looking more and more like a contender especially after that result against e. to mad lions. Were some very glad lions after the results of this weekend they did go up against taliban on the second day which was not that big a deal but then they lost two s k gaming to start everything off and this was not a good game and i can sum it up in one word woolite and anyone who's been around. I don't need to say anything other than that. But for everyone else. I will explain. Karzi played a frontline trysts. Donna more beautifully than i think we've seen since the rock days of about two years ago last. Pick tra- saana frontline. It was bad. I don't know what he was doing but he needed the w key taken away from him. After like three minutes this late i will raise us. Oona go even farther back. Me is like absolutely could have worked with one minor. Change all you to do is build shield bow instead of gale force suddenly. That's i could see a lot of the plays that happened in this game. Instead of him dying he gets away with low health. The play is successful because he had that she oughta the extra damage he taught. Then you can't go in his hard sort jordi got a jump. That's farther than every other other than all and he will go. I wish that come on man. That's razor so like they can't run away from him anyway. Yeah the build may have been better the play. I don't know if that would have changed everything but maybe just a little bit could have changed the snowballing. That wound up happening against them. Treats scott player of the game for this. That's how much on odin odin. I didn't even say what what did treats play jargon support. Ap moonstone renew or staff flowing water in support. Jarvis is on his flag correct but always it an ap rate. It's really not that high but it's very fun to see it actually chunk bits guaranteed to. There's basically no dodging unless you just flat out mess. It this games weird honestly if you want to watch a game and be very confused the whole time. This is one of two. I would recommend for this weekend. Totally watch it. It's a really good play overall from blue. So if you're looking for some better play from a rookie talent like this is a good one from him. You to see pantheon in lane. Gen-x plays against the orange and the top line for so. That's a really fun. I think little dichotomy. You're seeing here of them actually using it in a solo lane but that's really for a madeleine's fan like there is nothing else positive take away from their so instead you should really focus on what happened the next day. Fortunately team vitality but it was a very fun game overall. the real. You know what it really comes down to turkish top leaners on a trucks. There's something about it and we're going to see this matchup this upcoming week armitt on. Hr excellent on olaf which is a pick that we could see on shadow last year. He's looking really good. And you got to see karzi playing sarafin bottling which went the coveted double o ten so did not die Did a lot of healing and not a hell of a lot else which is perfect. Because that's exactly what olaf wants. You know we're talking about olaf with bird bottling etc you give them like the senna give him a seraphine and suddenly things look a hell of a lot different really not much more to talk about there because it is team vitality but hey mad lions win when they need to so half. Glad half mad all right. That's fourth place now. We just talk about the really fun. Ones s k gaming seventh-place here. We're going to kind of speed things along. I don't want to get stuck. You're too much. So odin talked briefly about s k. As we have already gone over both of these matches between excel and mad and shown how they did a very good job beating mad lions which she looked excellent versus north talks matter and it is as we said a very interesting game to watch and then they got absolutely blasted by excel. So there's not too much to talk about their so. It seems to me when they were in control. The draft did some weird shit. They were great but then when they tried to play a little bit more standard against a team that's kind of comparable they went boom and that might be the problem. They might be that playoff team. That are that non playoff team. That's the gatekeeper. On the outside looking in all right misfits. Jack's talked to me about misfits all right. So we've already briefly. Covered misfits played against chaka. It wasn't good for misfits At all here hard just ended that game. They also played against accel. We've already kind of covered this game too. It's not great misfits. Do not have a good week. It's a rough week for them and they beat. They lost a team to the kind of need to beat to be in the playoffs. They literally lost to the teams that we would to be the gatekeepers for getting in there. Obviously shopkeepers doing a little better than that expectation now but going into the split shalva would have been. The ones might yet if misfits makes playoffs. It's by beating shocker. Give me one positive takeaway. Bdo looked on stuff. That wasn't zoe this week. He didn't look good on long but he did. Look good on the syndrome. Even though they got stomped there. It is a positive takeaway. Astrology and team vitality both still exists in la. See all right. Let's talk predictions for next week. I literally have not gonna spend more time on. Do you wanna talk about them. I was just going to do a quick couple metaphors. He was waiting this whole time. He's holding land so one eight words like it was basically an lpn game but yeah you know astrology tries to take on fanatic them for everything and then fanatic. Just bitch slaps them onto the ground. Says what are you doing kids. Sit the fuck down And then rogue versus astrology was basically Astrology played like cg right like they got the ocean soul like they should have won the game and then they didn't. They also played like some weird lake scanner syndrome. Kaelin comp like why are you playing caitlyn right now. The champions terrible like what's wrong with you and it's about to get buffed way. We bad what are you doing And then they lost the game with ocean soul rate. And it's just like wow. This is so sad. This team is really sad. So i don't know if there's much to look forward to either can look forward to hopefully magic felix will look good hopefully. Yeah that's the one shining the the silver lining. I don't think it will save the team at all. But i hope for his looks. Good maybe it gives you like a good like your team goes from looking like absolute trash to lake. You know maybe not not quite trash rate. Maybe it'll put out the fire in the dumpster. There you go. Maybe instead of just straight dumpster headed out the landfill. It's recycling and it goes to different landfill and does the same thing The classic put in the ass in astrology. You say those two things now slow down the fact that you got to say those things means you probably had a better week in than both of these teams probably. Hey all right. Let's talk predictions next week. We start with shock. Oh four against the aforementioned astrology. We've got shock across the board. We are all on board the blue train baby with canvas as all hopping on the train. Now the train where we're saying. No astrologist sucks i. Yeah i think. I think there's a there's a good argument here that were on the train together and astrologist just the very very very far away. Caboose vitality versus accel. We've got acceler across the board for very similar reasons misfits versus g to. I wish this game look more interesting than we. All think it will be across the board even with. They're not so great end of last week. Misfits looked big stinky mad versus roque. I think this game traditionally should be a little closer than it looks but our predictions have rogue literally across the board. I'm gonna come out a limb here and say i really wanted to pick mad lions yet. They're just not good enough. Rogue just is operating on a different level. Mad lions is still figuring it out and it's pretty clear if they get the trucks things might be a little bit different fanatic versus k. This one is a little different odin. Everyone has fanatic except for myself. Why is fanatic in a win. This one odin fanatics found some synergy. They found a way to stand behind. Self made let him care. And k does not have pow- firepower to back them up. why i'm taking s k weipa. That's fair i'm taking esque because fanatic just won a game which means tradition. They will lose the next three regards. Just hoping this is a good game because remember. This is the original l. classical in europe. Also i just want to say. I don't think we ever use a wide whipple reason why fanatics in a win. Because you know that as soon as you say that he's going to his next game even harder zeal g. I'll be honest. I think they win this even if he does it off. That's fair it comes down to hilas saying i think more than anything. That's just fanatic tends to operate. Yeah we want self made to be. The kerry. saying has to be the impetus for victories. And you know he. He played too well against you to. What does the k. Has some good news in our next match. That's true they play against vitality and we've got across the board. This is a match. The vitality absolutely could pick up. And it'd be really really good for them if they do. it's unlikely. this team is a mess. Their coach actually duke last week. Even said like you know. Hey like we're struggling straight up. Admitted we're trying man. And i feel for him in a big way but this roster has just wolf misfits versus astrologers boy little little beaten up at the bottom of the barrel here jack. We've all got misfits across the board. And you're welcome for that. Because i imagine felix coming in now i might swap this. I was thinking about it just to give him a little. Let's do a stroller astrologist. It's time not right. Get out your ancient egyptian lamp and rub it because magic felix is coming to the rescue. Birds started conflict. The land is as the mid later. Nuked early. oh a magical now. Watch astrology zoe up. Like complete morons fits left. Turn the entire fucking cast against us. Odin is the senate now coming next week and we'll have changed back to misfits like in the audio shit. What if i go back. And edit the audio only if you make is so obvious where he goes you know what. I'm gonna change it to actually stay with misfits and just do something beautiful shoko four versus mad lions. We got a bit of a split. Cast here myself in jackson both have the mad. Lions coming away with this when everyone else says. I believe the much smarter choice of shoko four. I'm just you know. I think mads due to do something a little bit better than we expect because up to this point. I haven't really been impressed by them. But i think they've got more than what they've showed and shock has been on a hot streak but we've seen him on a hot streak before in those tend to come up a little cold for a bit and i think they do for it as well and they've got astrology already things. Don't go so well. There's there's a possibility they slip up a little bit more and mad can slide right on in but kane wii shell cooking to win this because one turkish stop leaner negates the other turkish shop lehner a and then the rest of shock beat mad. I love it i love. It does h hawks. Make it through it all. Unfortunately whichever team gets a trucks for their turkish top leaner will win. Okay who has i pick. Who's on who's on which side let's find out. Oh my god. I can't think shoka assuming that left of the schedule is blue side. Okay chuck is gonna win that one unfortunate but true fanatic versus accel. We have fanatic across the board excels. I think looking a lot better. They're tied in the standings. But there's just a lot more faith in the individual members of fanatic right and they came off beating g to. Yeah i still have escaped beating them. But i think this is the game that should win vs versus rogue. This is a hype game. Oh yeah this match for like three weeks straight now. Ever since week one wrote came out the gate swinging the top two teams for most of the split kansas. Why is rogo in this. You're gonna make me defend this. Yes i don modestly. This one was kind of a coin. Flip for me. I just feel like gee to are at that point in the season where they troll too much like the g. too early on wall always do these crazy coms like over these crazy plays and i don't know if they're gonna respect rogue that much even though rogue is like the top of the standings i feel like this is where g. Two's a little more relaxed. And then they'll pick it up later on so this is the moment where roque and beat them but then next time they match up. it should be favored. But that's all predictive i. I'm just going rogue morbid gut. Feeling honestly hell. Yeah odin wise g to win due to wins because they always beat rogue in asian. Put that into your countless their bud. Next time you'll get him next. Time champ so far are has taught us one thing death taxes Gt will always be rogue. It isn't playoffs yet. So we'll find out it's going to be a banger way to end off the weekend and right after that game we head on over the pond were over in action in the most beautiful place on god's green earth downtown santa monica. We're gonna be alive out of the right studios and by we. I mean not us by anyone. I mean only the people who are doing the backstage production because everyone else is doing from home. We're talking. lcs action for next week. Baby week too but we gotta run down. I think it's once again. It's too difficult. There are fifteen games we cannot cover all these games everyone. I'm sorry we're going to do it by standings just as we did the l. e. c. n. In first place we have two teams who dominated much of the lock in tournament just falling short. Both of them ian. What's one of these first place teams. Oh you know it baby. it's c-9 hell and odin what's the other first place team. My boy one hundred thieves. That was a way to just segue the into the team. Name very very impressed. Well done in second second-place technically third place. We've got eagles unisys and team liquid both tied at three and one. You're top four teams. They're exactly who we expected them to be or two and one. Excuse me in fifth place. We have A five-way tie had one and two between them immortals dignatories fly quest and golden guardians have one and two and all the way to a. We've seen algae fair. I would be with g if they didn't play each other. Thank god for that. If you're a tsm fan and we'll get to that shortly here but let's start at the top. Ian talk to me about senile is incredibly hot. Start to the spring split all right so all of the all of the good stuff about cnn from the lock in tournament amp it up a little bit. And now we got fudge playing like a monster to now. Let's go baby Blabber is on fire right now this guy looks like an absolute monster Like you cannot ban this guy out. He plays too many champions. He plays them all incredibly. Well we found out this week and a little bit during the lock and tournament that playing through fudge very viable option for this team. If they want to play through him they can play through him. He can carry so that's really good to know. Great for nine fans right perks looking a little bit better still not very like he didn't have any like really huge overwhelming. Like oh my god perks right. He hasn't hard carried a game but also not looking terrible so good good things. Kennel can't have everything once. i do. Wanna caveat a lot of this. C nine played golden guardians. Tsn immortals two of whom are probably bottom three and is struggling to stay out of that bottom three and as thankful for the other two existing and also seal there is. This is also real quick. Seanang rain over is bringing in this incredible that we have not seen in a long time. And it's my referring to the ignite camille into fudge over and over all weekend. The flashlight very specifically no flash. Camille is the only top lehner that seni- has to face the entire weekend and every fucking time echoes. Exactly the way you would expect if it was so low q. What happens at three minutes ian. Who's in the top. Lame boy blaby. He's camille is dead instantly. Like every single game yes. The media tweeted. He's like how's blabber mind controlling everyone into playing tonight. they're literally handing nine with culminated. In possibly one of the worst drafts. I've ever seen in my opinion versus the immortals game or immortals basically just f- f the game and champ select The gave over reconnect until you. Didn't they played flashlights. Camille gotthard cameras connected to leah. That goes exactly how you're going to expect. And then they gave over pantheon bottling so like another great setup like what do you do. They just theft and champ select it was horrible sizing middling or so. They couldn't even play through winning meaning. It's so bad anyways so from. We're talking about cnn right now. So i see nine. I think this is exactly how nine should look versus these teams right which is a good sign from c. nine They're not one of those teams that can look like competitive with top tier teams and then really shaky versus bottom tier teams. This is this is what you're expecting so good news for nine fans right. They won exactly what they needed to. They beat the teams in front of them and they did it. Convincing xactly hundred. Wrap it up. I just and perks. Plays zero twice and was the best year of the entire weekend in either region. He did have some good at sword. He was so good. He's looking better yeah he. I think were excellent on the picks. Let's talk hundred thieves though. Odin boys with the three zero weekend hit us jackson's hundred thieves. Do oh you're right. I'm so used to being you all right. Well let's have voted for me in that first round. Odu you talk about them. We heard enough from From jacksonville right now. And jackson i want you to to close it out. Hundred thieves have a really good weekend. Like i am so happy to see this team playing so damn well we do have to say. They played dagan seal. Gio try like. I feel like there is no if they are but these rail comps they. They'd kind of put a dent. The game hundred thieves at least had to try hard to win that game. It was not out which you would expect from first place versus tenth place and honestly their carry in that game the one who turned it around for them. Because you was winning. The early game was your most unlikely source. Demonte carried one particular team fight. Churns the game on its head and l. hundred thieves never loses control. It was beautiful from demonte. The digman toss game not so much. I'm going to gloss over the real fun game. The one against e. g. this is another top of the table team and they really they go head to head really really well and impact. The biggest issue impact tried nar into camille. It's not as bad as no but it's not great good. yeah yeah. And he picked it into camille and the earlier was not strong enough here at one hundred thieves really was able to just hammer this game down who he was all over the map. Fbi coming in on affiliates just being sitting back strong doing damage and closer olaf. We've seen it before we'll see it again rolls through again. I think he's got lucky getting that win. I'ma sarah now that's almost say about that little bit. yeah. I would agree with that. I really would. I'm kind of surprised. I mean if you three. They should be one into if sealed and edgy. Were better teams. Yep yeah but now the caveat is of course if they were playing against better teams. These teams aren't great. Eg struggled seals us really bad. We'll get to them later. Hundred thieves though they get the three. Oh they get what they need to and now they get to head to the actual tough part of the schedule and we'll get to that soon evil geniuses. Wanna talk about them. Who am i gonna make talk about them in. Odi talk more about him. Yeah talk about. Eg eeg. i guess since. I just finished talking about their poor performance against hundred thieves i can talk about. They're much much better performances against both fly quest and golden guardians but again we're talking about golden guardians and a fly quiz team which is playing much better than some of these teams around them but still lower the table still trying to get themselves together and the golden guardians game especially impact pick silas and just absolute that game as a style. Game from eeg lull over golden gardens. Just even definitely fucking pop it off going eleven zero and five on kaisa like really really good play and then in the fly quest game we see the what did they end up calling it. The horsepower com rim rail. And then they they put their own twist on it and had a lovely hsien and kaisa to follow the two horsemen around. It was just all dive with the leblanc to apply pok for some reason. Leblanc is a champion now but also to always. But she wants. He played that leblanc. I mean this is a champ that if it starts really coming back in the meta and it's it looks like it's on the edge of it currently for the people that are really good kid. She's a polk chimp. Her poke just happens to be your entire health bar and she pokes her entire body. You anything else about that. We should talk about before we close them out all right. They had a really good weekend. Events garin likes earlier just like everybody else doesn't love who'd here in the champions of the lock tournament the chest pre nominated to win the entire split team liquid came into this weekend with high expectations and they didn't quite achieve them and talked about the weekend. Yeah this team. Lost two immortals. Um that happened. Don't exactly know how they got hard counter picked. I mean you you going up against a rallying crank as ties. Yes basically what actually happened. Was they picked kinen into or no. They gave up the counterpane into the can and they gave revenge. Ira and he still killed al furry In the lane and from that moment onward it was like oh like it's going to it's going to be one of those games It's like when it's like the arabia's better than me and this is like one of the worst match ups for me in the game is over. Specify that immortals cop is garbage but they countered everything we wanted to de. I just want to share the top. Reddit comment on the thread for that one. Which is who wins the champs or a hooker named destiny jeffcott to. Let's crank this game. Yeah i wanna point out the bottling four team liquid like we actually saw this executed really really well by core. Jj if you've got the timing down. And i think if they were in a land environment. This probably goes a little bit better. You could save a few instances where corgis there. He's able to do the devour to stop the hook and half the time he just doesn't quite get it. Also tactical just absolutely loves hookers apparently named destiny in particular and gorge as easy as a young guy. He looked up to hong phong. Something really want to thank you for giving me was the exact segue yet that happened however they did have two other games this weekend One versus dig. Which went basically. Exactly how you would expect it to go just a massive shift team liquid just looks better in every way possible In the fight quest game was more or less. You know some of the same I think the morals game was more of a fluke than anything. It was just t l being like massively disrespectful to revenge and it's like okay you know you learn your lesson. Everyone learned the lesson rate. Everyone saw that game is like oh shit. We can't give this guy a really a right. We have to respect this guy so that lesson has been learned. I think that was a bit of a fluke team liquid. I think they're still doing fine. You know our instant capping everyone yet next week. I highly doubt there will be any flukes Team liquid thumbs up from this week. Thumbs up to one house. Just want to point out destiny. Only thirty four us as a support. that's so low. As a as a male support he was never in lane that blitzkrieg was always roaming which was really cool to true fair. Enough could point all right. Let's talk about the teams outside of the top four. Now we got five teams tied for fifth. Oh boy i hope we don't get too long in the tooth here. We've already talked about immortals. We've talked about their good game. There is no reason to talk about in either other games. So we're just we're not going to say much there immortals like hell. Yeah you beat the number one team coming into this. You did it in a very interesting fashion. It doesn't seem like something that can be replicated. And there's a lot of game against golden guardians. Free win that game. It wasn't even fun to watch. It was like it was like okay. This is just sad the game that they really should have won golden guardians. I guess we'll talk very briefly about it but we should talk about from the perspective gardens because they pulled out despite being down in six kills when the game ends now there macro is a little bit better. Do we need to talk about this. Fuck i guess. We golden guardians. They get they get a victory here. Boom they toppling. Yeah it's almost like. I can't stop a gangplank from forming right. I just don't get it. I don't get it anymore. We can move on but wonder so it must be good right. I just want real quick from the player that brought you. I really atop lane comes the other outplay champ of the season. Fucking two rookies as that are both known for mechanical top leaders that like the one v what what's match of guys really like game playing versus ever wanted to kill myself which shares what revenge on a fabulous is one moment in golden gardens verse immortals that is absolutely worth calling out golden guardians takes. Barron faints that they're going to rush for the base. Their down people. They gave up to who lives to get that baron. So what does he three five and immortals is like let's go pushes five bottling we gave up barron that's taken in hib and golden guardians is like. Hey let's run over a war we know. Is there like we're going to go take in hibs all of immortals immediately panic recalls. Because they don't have baron it'll take to recall. They will lose the game if they don't and golden guardians like we did our job. Once they're out of vision just recalls back defends their neck they're inhibitor with no loss of life. Their team responds in that. Was that good that needs to be called out that was exceptional by golden guardians called that like one hundred percent. That's a stick because that's so reminiscent of sealed. Gwt p like that's very much a classic all right. That's enough for them. We don't have to talk about them. Anymore fly quest. Let's talk about them. Because i think they're really interesting team here in fifth place and there's one other team we will spend a little bit more time on jose. Dod here now actually as a week of practice and they look a hell of a lot better they go up against them and they get that victory there so we actually covered both of those at the same time. I'm so happy. Jack's talked to me about fi- quest weekend. Quick fly quest does play against he. Sm m beat them liquorice looking a lot better and jose. Do looking like a monster in this game. There's not really much else to talk about. They just straight up outclass. Dsm from leaning phase onwards this game you get the seraphine bought paired with the hecker. So there's fun shenanigans airfield which is kind of interesting. That wasn't even the story of the game. It was just a cool pick. That happened to be part of the game was also played against team liquid geniuses much harder games jose diaz struggled to find any opening to do anything against team liquid and his entire team lost every single match up so as a juggler year. Just kinda shit outta luck at that point. I don't want hold that against jose libardo too much against e. g. was better but the pal thoughts verse zika gap was just huge. It was massive chazal. Now i do think positive. Take away from here. Johnson looked more than serviceable like he was. Decent and jose. Do like yeah. The team lost. He looked good. I thought in their losses like he looked smart. He was in the right places he was doing the right thing. The only game where he looked good was the where it was impossible for him. To look good and diamond had a good game. I was kinda surprised with how well. I think he did against. Tsm considering how little faith we have Just in general on the season started dignatories. Real briefly They played games. It was against one hundred thieves. It was against team liquid and it was against seattle g. guess which one they won exactly Imagine to come back in one magin. Imagine picking ringer on the big stage just to get executed. Krug's walk was doing because that wasn't even is only off the wall pick that he then played poorly. He also played moondog and shit. Josh carthage last week or during during the group's yeah. Josh was filling himself this week but maybe should have been feeling something else like a way to mobile fire back. Got him ooh. Oh dr doc nuke duck. Are they as anyone ever seen them in the same room at the same time. Dr do the ads. Okay we'll stick with that. Dr docket is move on from that team to talk about t s m. We gotta cover them. This is the team that may maybe the biggest splash in the off season acquiring a whole bunch of new players bringing in sort are for the big big money second only to perks in terms of actual cash be splashed dave. Do not start lose week. Well man they play. Oh god i can't take it away. I can't even. I was pretty hyped. On going into the year. I think i might have had the highest on my power rankings out of any of us or at least side for the highest any. Now i think is ils. Tweet really sums it up the best where he said. Tsm spent the money for team liquid but they ended up with seal g I think that that kind of sums. Seo's use the only team that they were able to beat this weekend. The cloud nine was you know you would expect cloud nine to win that right but that was not even close like cloud nine stopped them and then even fi quest it was like they didn't look like they're on the same page really the only one who was on lulu and they like didn't even win. They should have lost that game to seal. The should have like one ultimate games this weekend but deism somehow just win team fights and that's just now where you want to be when you have sort. Whose is supposed to be active roaming support. Who's missing multiple zenith blades multiple solar flares on leona. Not looking at all like he's on the same page with a team in the shock calling but also mechanically plane terribly seem. Looks rough real rough. There was a comment that i made during the watch party. Which is are we sure. Sort arts actually playing from a. Because just exactly what you had said canvas like the zenith blades are missing. The ulcers chance may be s is true. Maybe he's got his practice. He's like gun so good at the ping that now when he's playing on tournament romi just doesn't understand could also be you know. He's trying to predict l. p. l. players and predicting nice smooth brain a pros and we're out playing him across the board yeah. Tsm the perfect segue is a tsm only team. They beat seal g a team. They were losing to exactly the same way. Jack's predicted every time took until thirty five minutes. Twenty five minutes for the big team fight throw by sea. Algae amen to that twenty minutes longer than you'd expect. Maybe you gave. It really was exactly what. I predicted a week ago. Just like the last sixteen times. They've faced each other have been. Tsm lickin rough. And that's the perfect way to go into this. Last place team tenth place sealed g go zero and three yet. Tm fans if you're trying to cry into something right now don't worry too much because there's one team cushioning the bottom for you. And it's the cg roster sealed you that benched peo- for potentially attitude issues or something else who really knows. They can't get their stories straight there. Maybe don't have wild turtle go on any shows for a little while because he's to leak anything and everything you've got. This was such a mess man. This whole weekends garbage. I actually want to say before. I really should on them. I'm gonna to give a nice little sandwich here. Fin not bad honestly looks more than serviceable. He had some really rough moments. Which i think were understandable. He did the smart play of picking camilo flash like let's not fuck that up again so proud of him for that individual decision griffin honestly. Not terrible he looks good night. Good looks good. He has nothing to work with but he looks good individually the early game from seal g. is something that they've done before where they've had a smart early game. I just struggled to close out games. They looked pretty decent early game across all three games. And then just absolutely shit the bed. Once any sort of decent decision making is called for the ended eight k advantage over and they lost it And i couldn't even blame the rookies for this like. Rj honestly did not play that bad. I was kind of impressed with his individuals decisions every now and then and then he would pull out the most brain dead thing that he could possibly do. And i'd be like oh thirty seconds ago. I was like yeah. Let's give you shot next week. And now i don't wanna see your face ever again. I don't know what to do with this awful on death straight missing. Cs unforced levels of awful. He looked like a random gold. T.f player his other two games were fine like they weren't stellar but they weren't nearly as egregious and this is first. Lcs game so. I don't want to hold too much and it's hard to like how how much of a heads up to. We know that he got that. He was going to be going to be starting. How much did they practiced together. I also want to say smooth. You may have been a great fantasy pickup for everyone but just me Just yet what a weekend from him man. Oh my god. I don't even know what to say when wild turtles supposed to be. You're like bright shining star and he's playing like wild turtle of old who got benched on. Tsm for misusing his flash. I'm mining this for positives in the positives or the first ten minutes. Look pretty decent from this team. And they look like a playoff team and then after ten fifteen minutes. This looks like a team that should be playing in again And it's so hard to really judge them fairly. Because that's actually the thing i would hope proxy would be here for would beat be that calming shot calling voice. That's the positive. I actually see from this juggler and i can see how he could fit into this team now but i also know what's happening because there's not their mid lehner and rgs is not ready for the stages fucking accident is on surprises teams here on three only seal g can snatch defeat from the jaws of victory three games like they could be three. It's one hundred percent. If you all these games like the twelve minute mark you would have been like oh damn like sales. You is looking good. That's a top team. Not i'm not even close alright predictions for next week. We've got a whole bunch of games coming up got hundred. Let's go yeah playfully. I think we can go pretty quick through here. Hundred these were all one hundred thieves. Cross the board hundred thieves look pretty good even if they were a little shaky again. Some bad teams is still coming together. Seal versus tim liquid. Everyone team liquid across the board. Except for myself. Who i believe i m reading directly from your seattle dig accurate. I'm actually predicting. Cg wins this one. Team liquid. Just completely overlooks them and sealed somehow figures out like you know the thousand monkeys in front of type. Typewriters will eventually end up like riding a masterpiece. I think this might happen on thin. Just out lanes the what it comes down to is we. Everyone in the world has lost all hope and seal g. and that's when they win again when you put them to win in your predictions cow working with old man. I'm going to look like a genius. Edgy versus speaking of evil geniuses. We all think are going to be losing to see nine here. They're just not strong enough to nine. That's looking a lot better. Tsn versus golden guardian. Three of us have tsm. Jack's explain your golden guardians. Pick here guardians despite not looking amazing in their other games showcase some fantastic macro as i mentioned earlier and also like the more. Dsm ian wettest tsn. one. I think that Tsm like i hate to use the keyword potential. But i think the potential is there. And i think the corrections they can make after this week will be enough to carry them to a win vs a golden guardians team who. He's gonna lose to niles whether he's planning to carry or support david dignatories first immortals. I'm the only one with dignatories. Everyone else has the immortals faith a kansas. Why immortals. I dunno wrenches a cool jaw line like at this point. Yeah yeah they're yeah every ever they got the after losing the next time fucking loving. I have no better reason. For picking dignatories a coin flip fly quest reseal g. We have fly quest for only two of us. I have fly quest. Jack's has fly quest ian odin climates. Happening nice are you all talk. After remembering who seal changed it back enes really splitting the difference here putting f. l. You're going into timid flag versus clay seen high versus a hundred thieves. Little split here. Odin one hundred thieves is that purely your fandom there or do you think really good chance okay. We all agree then is looking like the better team at the moment slice. Lear i filled this out when odin filled out. I think this is like a fifty five forty five in favor of cloud nine close match. I would say it's a sixty four nationality. Sixty four pretty close people definitely chance. Cnn loses the. This is a good game. This is going to be one of the good games of the weekend which you know we get fifteen games so fingers crossed one of. Them's good golden guardians for stigmas. Who boy this is not going to be one of them. Dignatories for myself in an odin golden gardens for jackson canvas. Jack's waggled gave last time because golden guardians showed they understand what macro is ian y dig coin flip pretty much men like yeah dig is fails. I got you. I got you can get the studio. Tv god shadow versus team liquid. We have tim. Liquid across the board team. Liquid tm not good immortals versus e g g good immortals not good a team liquid versus one. Hundred thieves is another really good matchup. I'm actually excited. We're getting so many good matchups. This weekend you know comparatively it helps fifteen potential games but we also have four teams. That look pretty dang. Good we have team liquid across the board except for jacks with one hundred thieves so odin actually swapping allegiance and of course with one hundred team. All right odin. Why team liquid over a hundred thieves right now. Hotline matchup You think a little bit better and internal let are they do against a. There's not enough the rest of it. I think the like. It's really hard to tell here. I could easily have one hundred thieves. Have he could do for all my predictions now realize they can just split the difference. I mean you're getting zero. No matter what happens. I automatically put some hand contain out. Sorry and not let affari linking them him like he does everyone else. Frankly i'd rather just better on the other four members of hundred these who are looking really good as a unit right now over team liquid who has looked very good. But i don't like him and they haven't looked nearly as dominantly good as you would expect especially given that they won the lock in right the best explanation you could possibly give adding ever. I think we could have stopped there to be honest. All valley just don't like man absolutely speaking for serious when i picked something stupid like dignity. Speeding's in liquid amen to that arecelor immortals versus tsm. I have a mortals. As does kansas ian odin in jack's with ian white. Esm because immortals just looks like a trash to your team right now like holy shit sucks. They don't suck decimals bad but like mortals. Just really bad dude. That's that's basically it. Guess counter i think how can i just do i m. Tsm like does that sets too many letters. That doesn't worry that's too many you need four. It's gotta be four. Can you fit it in that. What will figure it out some of the time. There's a t. in and there so there's gotta be something we can do I feel like tsn just looked so solo q. And yes immortals looks bad but they don't look so low q. Like they're making bad plays. They're doing bad things but they're doing it together. You know it's like a bunch of brothers holding hands jumping off a cliff rather than tsn shoving each other off the cliff so to reagan slightly. I hear all right. We're keeping that analogy. That's that's sticking around for awhile. Eeg versus stigmatize. This is a. Don't watch this game at ten. We've got easy across the board seni- versus fly quest. I'm actually pretty excited for this game. I think it really does grow over the next week. We're going to see it evident in this game against a team. That's looking really damn good. Having said that we got sick across the board their firing on all cylinders up to this point relative to the start of the split. We'll see if they can continue that trend golden guardians for cecile who this is actually the grudge match of the weekend because it is stick say and friends versus his former team. This is not going to be a good game Everyone has be scraped. Oh man this is going to be a slobber knocker and it's going to end us on sunday evening as well. I have golden guardians. I believe in sticks. In the lads. Ian has golden guardians jackson golden guardians odin has sealed g and congress has gluck geez. It's going there. It is the only one factor in. Why does this one. Do you need a couple minutes to really think about this. I can't get you back to its garden with. It's a long can't see the document just back. Spaced seal g and replaced it with g g in the node and just changed his mind right before we actually have golden gardens across the over mind control right. Oh man watch there. Actually be a fleshless camille in that game and it's for finn and then he wins in true can't logic fashion all right. That's it we got to close this episode out before things get too crazy. James out so far in predictions. Sean and odin are tied with a seventy one percent prediction accuracy but ian is the true winner here because behind by one game and that means he has sixty nine percent accuracy on his predictions. Nice say that's nice but can you sustain that sixty nine percent baby try. That's what you gotta aim for specifically every week just trying to get that score. I don't even know if that's mathematically possible. Let's close out this episode. Because i know it's a long one if these are all going to be long episodes you're welcome everyone but there is someone else actually wanted. Thank before we get to the end of this whole thing. I want to shut up crews in our community discord. Who has put together. What at this point maybe three hundred different fantasy leagues for everyone who wanted to participate anytime someone chimed in and we had a full league already he would just make a new one so he and i believe there's another guy mike in there who has also been on like five or six of them just filling them out and then more people would come in so shout out to you guys really putting all been great if you join our community discord. If you haven't already you should it's awesome. It's a great place do it. And if you really wanna feel like a full fledged member unfortunately the founder tag is now close to you but you can be a recipient of the prestigious invisible five star tag if you give us a five star rating on your favorite podcast network. Just let us know will attach a tear name as soon as you jump into the server. You won't be able to see it and neither will anyone else. But we'll know in our heart that you've given the best league podcast the best score possible. Thank you guys for listening to us. Every week we wouldn't be able to do this without you without your support without you caring about the bullshit that comes out of our mouths. We love you buy

EP 75 - CULT LEADERS with Jay Hunter

"Shutout i rub it. Come everybody shut up i love it i am joe cabello and i'm here with shut up i love it. Sasha filer. what's up everybody. We're so happy to be returning guests. So i mean you already know who it is because you look at the description gas and you've probably like looking at it for like a couple of days and be like. Oh what am i gonna unleash upon my synapses like another handle. Can i handle another deep dive with jay. Like it's gonna just pose questions for eternity really really stoke the flames of creativity inspiration. Jesus already taken over this podcast but introducing me anyway. He is a cinematographer and director. Television director of this town called hollywood. He's named jay hunter. Welcome good to be here. The new intro. Now joe does the intro and then you can chime in the mc now. I feel like he. It's as bad as a star with him. Yeah thank you. Yeah thank you for enjoying. Because i i remember while ago before like the metoo movement and everything. I took a class with either. I remember jobs for me. I had to change a lot of things with heather campbell. Who's in the mazing comedian. And i remember 'cause she was doing a two person show with miles a lot whilst trough and she said she said i remember. I don't like to introduce our two percents. Show because i feel like if a woman introduces it the legitimacy like should. I don't think that that should be the case but people have less respect for you right away. Though like woman is good like hell self crazy. I was like i remember jews lakers. I always looked up to her so much for like being the strong woman and comedian. And i was like shit dude. But hey we're not here to talk about kevin campbell. J what are you here to talk about. Well you've heard me talking about many things in the wells running a little dry in terms of things that i have a wide breath john but like one more one more visit. You get your punch card and you get a free smooth. And i'm probably. I'm probably the most popular and most widespread guests on this podcast. And you've heard a lot about what things that i've been obsessed with an into also us. You're listening to the podcast. J. has own podcast. That's why you're very aware of what's going on in fan probably. Probably you probably are listening to this. Because you're a fan of my podcast came over migrating. Hot castenada yeah. So so. I was forced manhandled against my will to invent a new subject for this a new topic to discuss and i gotta say it was kind of an easy choice. Because i'm the only manhandled the well is running dry but like but this episode is about colt leaders and my lifelong fascination and problematic love with called coulter house. Love the i love leaders but like it's like a love hate relationship. I'm more than i'm fascinated by them but i i'm constantly obsessed with with leaders and i just. It's a topic that i find endlessly interesting. So let's clarify as we often want to do try You're you're here to talk about. The show is about colt leaders as in there just interesting in the study of them interesting. Not defending no writing a calls and being a leader. I just wanna make sure. I'm not proposing that anyone should join the call to. I'm not saying any of these leaders that we're gonna talk about are particularly good people. They're mostly mostly there's light they're mostly all hundred percent horrible people but i'm just i'm i'm very interested in you like just. The theory of being a cult leader the practice of the different methods by which they attain cult leader status. I'm just. I'm constantly obsessed with these these kind of large charismatic personalities that are somehow able to Promulgate like a like an like just this undying hordes of people that are willing to do anything you know up until now but only included the killing themselves or killing other people committing crimes yet. Yeah i mean like co-leaders fascinate me. Because they they can take people that tend to be kind of troubled broken people but then sort of brainwash them in turn them into their. They're sort of psychic slaves in many ways. Like i just think that's fascinating concept and you you see the influence of cults all over our world and are just varying degrees of cult. I mean you know everyone. Everyone in high school like met met a friend who's like religions just a cult like religious like scientology man that just like two thousand years old or christianity which is absolutely true. Religions were started by founded by co-leaders. This is probably a distinguishing couple. Distinguishing characteristics to to differentiate colts from religions from the major world religions. But they're all they're all founded by these very legacy. Charismatic strong willed people and the topic of cult leaders is to me. It's like a confluence of all the things that i'm interested in like which is like wean. Yeah we called the but but but like like like the colts. The colts like black magic. Psychedelics previous you can go and listen surge. J. shut up like ufo's conspiracy theories. I it's just like all these things that i'm fascinated with all kind of like the diagram all overlaps with cold leaders and so there's a little bit of what i love in in each one of these stories so this is very interested in personal for me in the sense that i've always like question. Your obsession with called leaders does well. Because even though you're saying like of course you not defending the called leaders. But he's in something sometimes. We're obsessed with this because there's something in our personality that reflects that obsession. Yeah well what if you can read between the lines. Sasha's saying that. I'm a potential cult leader. I have the tendencies of meglomaniac cult leader which is true like no no. I'm probably fascinated with it. Because i seem i see my own potential in their in their stories. See you out there listening. And you want to support this meglomaniac. He's open for business as well. Yeah i mean. I've always i think it's part of. It's just like a joke that i would. I would say you know. I've always felt like i if i wanted to. If i put my mind to it. I could start a cult and be like one of the great leaders of all time. That is a big statement. I mean not like it sounds ridiculous like joking. But i'm actually very serious like but the thing is is that i would never do it. Because in order to truly be successful as a cult leader you have to abandon ethics morality. You have to be kind of like a bad person. Deep down like the though. I know that if i'm like a young anakan skywalker who could easily be turned toward the dark side and become darth vader. I can resist unlike. Anikin i can become. Obi wan kenobi the wise man the mountains but so yeah so i mean it's a mirror i'm looking into it. I'm seeing a scant reflection of my face. Yeah because i would never be interested in this topic but it is somewhat interesting to me. And i remember taking a class in brooklyn college. Shout out about secret societies. There was between secret societies and societies with secrets. And although i'm not comparing to call leaders. But the i guess the question is what separates called leaders much like their secret. Societies and society was secrets. There's a certain differentiation between them. What separates like called leaders from like just like upright citizens brigade theatre where people are obsessed with the idea of doing improv or like the catholic church or something like like any kind of group that people have like an undying love for and loyalty to well i. I'm not a cult expert by any means. I'm an amateur fan of the subject. But i know that a lot like a couple of distinguishing characteristics between cults and religions. Are that a cult will will try to d program. You an trying to erase moral codes and and and sort of ideologies that you had in the past. We'll we'll try and completely erase that they will also try and separate you from friends and family and tell you like oh those are the nonbelievers you have to detach them so detaching from your from your social network your social system is a big element. It's also if the cult is asking your the organization is asking for all of your money. I mean that's where there's a little bit of overlap because obviously organized religion does the same thing but but it's more like a cult. We'll we'll ask you for all of your money and not just like five ten percent or something or just passing around a bucket in church. Court will tend to demand that you relinquish all personal property to the cult. And it's also another distinguishing characteristic. Is that a cults usually led by a cult leader who what where it's not about philosophy necessarily or the philosophy is always second to the personality of the person in charge. So it'd be it's the term cult of personality in russia. They loved expression because they've lived through so many in style in are we. Yeah i mean you could say. Trump is like a cult leader. I think for sure he is with matic checks out. Yeah certain weird way. Yeah yeah. I mean i i mean. I don't think he's aware of it or anything i think. He's just like his natural inclination. Is the become like a cult type. Lille ethic system hitler-stalin. All these like pol pot. These like they are kind of cult leaders in in the larger sense of the word. but but what. I'm mostly obsessed with the cult leaders where they have a small group of people which could be up to many thousands of people but relatively small comparative to the rest of the world population where where it becomes a cult of personality where he becomes worship of this one personality. This one person Rather than the than an embracement of like of a religious taxed or a series of ideals. Like that that's always second to the to the person in charge. Yeah and there's only really one example where it's transcended that Which is scientology. Yeah well what do you mean. Well i mean they're scientology's still obsessed with ron hubbard. I in a lot of ways. David miscavige choose the current head of the church. Santa fan shot the miscavige. He he loves the show and and we hope that you do find his. His wife is found. Who's been missing for many years. She's got no pretty much guaranteed she's gone. But but yeah so so. Like scientology was the cult of personality. Based on l ron hubbard and what happened was when l. ron hubbard died. Or if you're a scientologist. He just ascended to the next level. He transmitted physical space. But but but what really happened was that he died addicted to drugs in a trailer. Hemmitt california in the middle of the desert and david miscavige. Who was like his second in. Command co redesign the church and and made it made it canonized him. Yeah canonized and it's always still about elwin hubbard and his genius. But miscarriage is in the traditions of the great leader's. He's taken over the position of leader. And so though he can't he can't denounce l ron hubbard the fact that he's dead and doesn't really have any relatives that are involved with the church miscarriage. Yeah he he can take the sceptre and reigns supreme. Yeah very unique of it to make that pivot while the story of many of these other ones are like. Oh everybody realize they're all crazy And maybe that's due to the lack of violence in inciting that that they they commit there has not been found. Yeah yeah yeah well. I'm sure there's been much. Violence done by saying ptolemy that we're both aware of through. Hbo documentaries are unaware of but yeah like just going through the history of the list you sent like everyone like ends in bioterror event or mass murderer mass suicide but scientology now that tends to be the the end result of of a cult and the cult leader is that it self-destructs at a certain point. And maybe the beauty or the genius of scientology is that it was designed so that it can keep on going and and gain ronnie gain strength. Make money stay strong through its membership in through sort of the missionary element of it. I mean the mormon religion similar deal. It was like the original leader. What's his name. john smith. He was like he barely even. He didn't even make it. The salt lake city like like he was killed by an angry mob in missouri. I think and brigham young was the one the david miscarriage of the mormon religion. The brigham young was the one who brought them. Who got him the salt lake city in the mormon church or the of latter day saints. They like to be called but Yeah so in that way. Scientology to me is a lot closer to mormonism. It's just a lot younger. Hasn't gone through like the four or five generations of of of power and that that the churches so jay you gave us a short list of your favorite cult leader or at least appropriate for this particular topic. The podcast hard to save my favorite. It's more like they're just. They're like the the big shine. Big greatest hits his way to put it and already brought up by one of my personal favorites. L ron hubbard especially because we share birthday is basically no matter. How bad your birthday with me. I'm a fan. And i notice quite a few of them are pisces. Which was very interesting. Which i am. Obviously it makes sense but like march. Thirteen shout out and the Send us definitely an email if you're march thirteen percent. But yeah l. ron howard. Then you also give us a few other names and i. I was asking you jay how you wanted to proceed with the structure of this podcast. You said you just going to drop the names. We're not going to go over each. I'm kind of like i like. I like to just jam. You know like a word jazz guy. A wean yeah. Yeah style jam that. Let's say incorrect. But i was just gonna rift because it's a topic. I know a lot about and so there are few leaders that i told sasha jota to check out in preparation for this for this series and the one was l ron hubbard the aforementioned shoko asahara somebody. I didn't know much about like. I've heard a little bit about him but i didn't know much about shook. Sahara is the founder of the ocean. Rikio death cult. You got charles. Manson we all. We all know charles manson which he loved the beatles bills or that you want to be the beach boys more specifically but yeah charles. Manson the manson family marshall applewhite's. Who's the founder of the heaven's gates before death colts. He's got super cool. Is you know. Super calming is kid. He's got he doesn't have. He is very creepy and destroys. Charles manson the ice seem to be. They all have interesting. Interesting is hunter line. Just see much. Like i mean. That's interesting is because a lot of cult leaders over time have been like a through line is that they do have a very piercing gaze. Got like alastair croly you got. Rasputin you've got. You've got l ron hubbard charles. Manson passing you but marshall applewhite. The next one on my list is the bhagwan rajneesh like group. Yeah crazy is he's got. These piercing weird is yeah. And we'll have to say that shoko asahara or shackle asahara. He was blind so that did not have piercing is by any means but he has a story is pretty crazy. 'priority he he has. He has a fast thing. I mean we do like you know a ten hour series just on shoko asahara th th. The last person was going to mention. Was jim jones. The founder of the sample who who's probably the highest score in terms of like like kills. I believe it's like several thousand people killed themselves in jonestown and nine point nine nine hundred nine. Yeah it could have been thousand. I'm sure the wave. you like. By the side of the road. The other groups that order of the solar temple that have a lotta kills to their to their credit but like but Jim jones like he he. He's the all time he's like the goats the greatest of all time in terms of like forcing your your followers to all murder themselves. Yeah well as well like it's it's important. Even i think how much people are obsessed with colts. Colt leaders just with tv shows that depict them either fictitiously or nonfiction. Fiction shows There's people seem to really be obsessed with this topic in fiction. So i wonder what your thoughts why people seem to enjoy seeing. This played out. Well i can only. I can only say that. Like the reason i think people are interested in the same reason i'm interested in is because you're just fascinated by somebody who has the talents of magicians so to speak like someone who can who can invent something. Just pull something out of their own ass and then teach it to people around them have them be like undying servants that the that are willing to kill themselves or others or do horrible things for you just because of the of mind control that you've sort of put them under i mean a little. It's hard to say like mind control quote unquote. That's essentially what's happening. But it's the it's the power of persuasion. And and i mean i think people are also fascinated by it because like leaders usually descend into sort of like fantastical stories and they implode and it's it's a crazy third acts for for these stories but like you know you see these qualities in cult leaders that you see all around you like in politics and in power in government i. It's these very similar qualities people in the business world. I mean you've got little mini cult leaders who don't create death colts but create colts. Not thought of as that. So i am actually a person who despite the fact that i'm saying that i'm not interested in called Like as a topic. I am pretty success. Susceptible person to get involved in the call. You've been a member member of many micro. What was that one. Call that you remember of the guy. Remember you went to like is like retreat in new mexico member gary gary. I don't think he was a colt. Yeah that's they all say is he was not a real leader. I just felt like i was pretty chill in. I didn't have a bad image agenda. He felt like more like a meditation teacher but he was like not aggressive about it in his wife with him like he didn't didn't actually feel like i have taken a writing class. Where the person the writing. I taking the class religiously for two years to the point where it was the closest i've come to like become a member over microcosm that still exists of like consists of like four people and new members once in awhile. Join it in. I had two other friends who also felt like they were just couldn't leave it was. It was a crazy thing. So like i had that and is again a charismatic person. Who's very kind and warm and makes you see right because it's like eat. Praise on insecurities sort of like charles manson did right like all the he praised on your insecurities of actually you are extremely talented. And i'm not like like when. I say like a sounds like like gosh like you are disaster but it. I'm talking about very small moments in class like this particular writing class. Where very small moments were you know being noticed being seen right. It's this like desire to be seen to be noticed to be praised by the cult leader. He by the cult leader and also see the cult leader. Do something really well because the guy is a good writer so you see him actually going through this emotional journey of helping people's right to become better. What i would say is another thing. Another elements of cult leaders and colts. Is that which which i think is applicable to your story about this writing teachers that they tend to teach their followers that they don't have the power within the power is in the cult leader and maybe in the strength of the cult. And you need to be a member of this in order to receive that that enlightenment or or the energy and that power and so you always feel subservient to a something. That's bigger than you. So you like in this writing class. Everyone's got different degrees of talent. But this person you know in from my from my perspective convinced everybody that if they didn't go to this teacher that they would be failures right like like it wasn't that he was he or she was teaching. It wasn't that they was what we're teaching people how to write and go on like the adage teacher man to fish and he'll eat for his whole life or whatever he wasn't doing that he was more saying like like. I'm gonna teach you how to be a follower of mine and you can never leave or else you're all going to fall to pieces. He was also saying crazy. Things like like which. Now looking back and having grown exp- i think exponentially since i broke off the kalt like he was saying there's only one way to write like he would be like there's only white way to story can go and just things like insane right like as you look at right here at the time but at the time he's got it and you and you see him using his talent to really manipulate you and then ended with be going to his house being invited for a new year's january. I like a welcome new year's or maybe december thirty first and then him Acting out in front of other like cult members. That i've never met that i like his france but they're like really looked like cult members. And that made this point radio starting to like realizing peeling off of the cult so this person is teacher he. He acted As as an entity in trance who is telling people what the future holds. Keep this act of like. He's also a magical. It was like i wasn't there but it was basically like you talked about in latin. He was doing like a seance where he was like getting possessed by some spirit. Tom i m shaking my head to joe. I'm just like oh my god. What the fuck. As soon as i heard that i was already like this. Is it like and then it took me two more months to like come to like still come to come to like the goodbye like that's the funny thing couldn't leave right there which i should have is still took me like i think that was so that was in december and i left and like jewish. Select six more months. It's all it's very adjacent to con- behavior people who run cons and abuse behavior. Which is you front load with a lot of trust giving you things doing nice things so that when the when the person pulls back where they the cult leader pulls back or the cult leader decides to not act good and you wanna get away now. i know. Remember all these good things that have done for you that you've done and it's just like typical abuse behavior and it's exactly what you see in the colts which i think is the biggest differentiation between it and a religion is it's really like by design to attack people who are susceptible right like the. The whole purpose of colt is to make you completely dependent on the cult so that you'll never ever leave whereas religions manipulate in in various ways. But but it's it's not to to the end result of you just just becoming a monk or something you know. They're trying to create the trying to convert all of their followers to become like members of a suicide cult for them or anything like zing. Here's a philosophy. Yes you can come here to the church and you can gain light like like like fulfilment and stuff you still go out and you live your life separate whereas a cult is all about living your life your your life. In the cult become inseparable. So the colts gone. You might as well be dead right and and you know it's like another thing is is that like when you bring up a conman and it's not a coincidence that like nearly all the people on this list of leaders i've given you and many others have all been obsessed with a book. The dale carnegie road called how to win friends and influence people charles. Manson will read those cell help. People are still think it's like the bible of like i know professional meditators. Who are upset. And i'm not saying that. I haven't read the book but i'm not saying the book is like evil or anything but but the lessons learned in a book like that you know like in the wrong hands in the hands of a potential cult leader it kind of gives them blueprints on how to how to become leaders themselves right right well. Let's talk about phyllis thinki- who is on the show. Talked about fuck boys and the game book is essentially like its adjacent to that book. What is the game the game. Yes yeah yeah it. It's completely like that book the How to win over people whatever that was but if you wanted to make that book just about picking up chicks that is the game and that was a cult in and of itself and a lot of ways in like a in a weird way right a cult based on Not exploiting the people that are part of the cult but a cult that's based on exploiting others using their tendencies like convey newly converted in cell like people not all of them but maybe some of them were giving something to the people at the head like off game like the game maybe giving money or giving their time or sherburne for sure. There was some definitely heavy elements of the call. Like guy like charles manson. He he goes the he's lived most of his youth in jail and he comes across how to win friends and influence people. He gets obsessed with that book apocrypha. -ly like how are we actually to know that. Maybe you just heard of it and claimed jill liked it. But like he you know he was also obsessed. There's another book about him. So that the crazy like Like legendary like like underground book. I i can't remember what it's called but but it's basically how to be a pimp right and and it's it's the same thing like the conmen and and cult leaders and pimps all kind of go by the same the same way to manipulate people into to shower them with love and then charlotte shower them with haight so that they're always coming back for the love right like i. It's just the way it's just like this like like a like psychological software like like like a virus computer code. They if you if you utilize it in certain ways you can change people's minds and have them just follow you forever either cold or it is called how to be a pimp both great titles and i think Another distinguishing factor of the call is that versus like religion Just to tie it back to that is that they're not trying to get anybody they in fact don't want a halt doesn't want the well-balanced no he's fine a would not survive. The membership was open to everybody or like like only certain people are going to become part of the manson family. You know he's not going to get millions of followers. He's gonna get like follow hours of certain types of people that have been abused the have psychological trauma dealing with the they just have a variety of issues. It's like what you know you read about like like a pedophile or child molester. Will profile like kids in a certain way and identify. Oh this kid has abyan the that will allow me to then like like molest them or whatever and and they won't tell their parents so they they they focus on on victims like not everyone like like like like not every woman that meets a pimp and is maybe in hard times is going to become like one of the girls go in the prostitution but or sex work what we call it now and so and so the the so but like but certain personalities are more susceptible or certain people in certain stages like mindsets are are. I think it's also it's easy to like think of the cult followers as being stupid because one of them clearly no but like you watch the thing about that nexium called you know and you watch these people that are these idiots like this guy. this guy. this cult leader is a dumb ass. Why are they following him. Like it doesn't jones even like looks dumb dumb on marshall side marshall applewhite whatever right and so and so like you but but i think it's important not to nuts. Nuts identified the cult followers weak-minded. It's just that they're in a they're in a state of consciousness that allow that makes them very susceptible to the cult leaders send battle the substances are often a part of it. What you mean like drugs like without drugs drugs. The one of my favorite subjects in the world psychedelics Basically the key to the universe and and the best way to make yourself a better person but it but but any tool can be used for evil and a lotta these a lot of these leaders will use like things like lsd or other psychedelics to like in their evil plan to manipulate and brainwash people's minds and it's it's proven to be a very effective method. I mean certainly with charles manson certainly with shoko asahara who they were making just like barrels and barrels of liquid. Lsd and everybody in the cult was on acid the entire time. It's it's it's a way to deprogrammed people and to reprogram to to your specifications shoko asahara like and goal. His goal was to create the apocalypse. And that's the scariest thing about shoko asahara and ocean rikio which a lot of people don't know what it's about. It's insane story. I recommend anybody who wants to learn about ocean. Radio should go to the last podcast on the left and look own episode. They did like a seven part series on just this one cult we would know. Most people listening would know rikio from was with the serum. Gas tokyo subway sarin gas attacks that happened looking at nine hundred ninety s and it was like you know in the west or whatever in america was just like a news story like oh my god these crazy people set off this gas. Like kill a bunch of people in the subway. What was actually happening. Was that was like that was like a dry run. For their for their apocalyptic vision they were. They were trying to do much bigger things that they were acquiring a military grade weapons they had. They had a military grade tomahawk helicopter with guns and missiles they had they were developing a nuclear weapon and they actually were doing. It wasn't just like some pipe dream So the their ultimate goal was was. It's really the fault of the lesser co-leaders in my mind as opposed to someone truly brilliant. Like l ron hubbard. Who you know a lot of times. They don't think far enough along and eventually they're they're they're diatribes their ideology. Their their story of spirituality leads to an endpoint. And the endpoint comes. That's when you see these things like everyone kills themselves or or just completely burns down in some way or another incarcerated. Whatever 'cause they're not thinking long term like papa l ron hubbard. I mean he's if there's the holidays in hell but like the man was brilliant and got a great writer though right. He was the worst writer of all time. Like if you read l. run hubbard's it's like somebody just learned english from the planet. Mars is trying to write like a store. I mean it's insane. His lack of of the his lack of skill with the english language. I mean it's it's incredible but like that's when you learn about scientology you you hear some of the words and some of the things they have in they sound weird to you like they say like mind brain a lot and like its mind brain. You mean just like your mind or your brain why it mind brain like he he he. He's just he's just like the worst all sit intellectual yeah he creates words. New words like scientology. Which wasn't the word science and technology which is like the study of thought or whatever. The study philosophy combined words clever scientology. I mean somebody is clever. But like if you go deep into the hell hubbard cannon the hubbard oeuvre. You're gonna find a lot of dumb shit and if you not a follower you read this and you and it sounds like like the writings of dumb ass. And that's why a lot of people throw their arms up there and say like how could anybody follow this shit because it's it's so clearly stupid and from the mind of an idiot the discounting the whole recruitment process in the hallway. That you're brought into the colts and we're state you're when you brought in her never comes out the first day right. It's like allergies deepen after it's like imagine if you were in a relationship. It's like month eight you're thinking about even saying i love you to this person and then they're like you never will. Hey i'm an alien. you never will. Oh they won't give it up because then they will respect you but yeah go on but then they say like hey. I'm an alien. You know four months. We're going to go in a spaceship and then it's like what do you do. It's a lot different than on date the first date they say that. And that's what these leaders do and especially scientology is well known for you know after you've put sixty grand and then they're like hey there's aliens and the information is is let let like as you become deeper involved in the cult and more secret information is given to you if you get something small. Some small bit of new information. That's that's heavily guarded and secretive. You might not see the greater picture where it's like like in the greater context it seems ridiculous and outlandish but since you got this little secret bit of knowledge you ingest it and you you and byu a sense of like greatness and reality unto that and it's just it's just like a slow like like like a snowball rolling down the hill just gets bigger and bigger and bigger until you're so wrapped up into the defines like your entire view of reality and i will say also the that's why guys like shoko asahara we're using lsd. Because because i mean if many people listening to this of done psychedelics before lsd is probably one of the most powerful and influential psychedelics. You could ever take and if you keep people on acid for long periods of time and tell them that reality is a certain way they one hundred percent will believe it. I mean you're so your brain is so fragile and susceptible to outside suggestion that that keep people in that especially people that aren't used to taking psychedelics. Like shoko asahara. It was all these like you know like scientists and smart people. You know people that had good standing in society but japanese culture doesn't have like a drug culture really. It's it's a very. It's not a very widespread thinks. There's not this knowledge of psychedelic drugs. And so if he starts feeding you psychedelics. And you start seeing visual hallucinations and he starts like moves finger around the sky and there's pink trails going around it. You're going to suddenly think that this guy has god and that he has he the ability to bring you to to you know into the infinite so yeah so it's like but not all of them work work with drugs like drugs. Drugs can be a tool like shoko asahara or charles. Manson use it as a tool. But but others don't like you know like illegal. Ron hubbard wasn't into drugs using the vitamins. But i just want to say. I really quick thing while we talked about mind brain and all the other funny bad english words. Like l ron hubbard used for dianetics and scientology so like another call. That i'm still a part of but not really is like a very. This is very interesting because it's it's very it's become yoga right so like become clearly terrible person horrible person. I mean like i just outward. Always say like he's a rapist and and a lot of ways i by his description. He reminds me of trump just the way he acts like the way. You kind of dismisses people like not important things important by talks about like women that he pulled out of the trash. Yeah they were just trash trash. And i saved their lives. His guy did not create the yoga that he popularized in america. But he did do this. He took this yoga from his teachers. That in india and he popularized at an put it in the hundred and ten degrees. Which of course is almost like giving people lsd system. Crazy altered state. And i find the most healing yoga that i've ever done and i've been for seven years and then of course at this point it's not really big room yoga for the most part that i do. It's like it's taken own life like people who have no affiliation with bagram just have hot yoga studios and you do that yoga. I still find it therapeutic for me. That's where and i think that's like a question of almost an example of kalt that there were people from like the necklace documentary on the podcasts. About that those people who were very close to him and there were always acting extreme cold like full just kissing him like he was just raping people. Crazy stuff right. But then there's like he also wanted to make the money so he while the money that you paid directly to this become studios warren going to him but it was like a mcdonald's it was a franchise. He was making money on this teacher training like when he was still before he became like a pariah and and it was a crazy thing of there was like all these other people i guess hundreds of thousands of people that never met him but they were told like to like respect him and love him and i really didn't catch the much of that because already like the time when i came in but i think it's an interesting called because there are people who very close to him but then there was like almost like a radio waves of the greatness of become and another crazy thing they do in the classes they in the hardcore like strata become classes. They read the dialogue that he'd written and a lot of the words are messed up on purpose. Like hug. grab elbows each other. which means opposite elbows. But it's a a elbows each other or you. You're there is no room between your legs and your chest. Your japanese ham sandwich in for years of which it's that mean and then like some teachers explain and now like the dialogue in of course it's called dialogue which is super happy and it's not a dialogue a monologue from the teacher but he's been completely broken now. It doesn't doesn't really get used but it is a weird thing right the program your body to respond to it so it's very it's also like most. Most lot of the occult and most colts have like like an indecipherable texted. the worship. are they re. And it's almost like like like illogical or irrational words plug put next to each other juxtaposed. It's almost like the the idea is is like oh yeah. That doesn't make sense. I know but like give it a couple of years like once you get the level four. It'll make sense and then and then you might convince yourself a one point all i do get it now. I do understand what this like like easier poetry like actually means it's again. It's another tactic of the cult leader to to create like t to manipulate language. And also to teach you that like your your previous concept of language no longer exists or if you're now in a different world where words mean different things in different rules and and scientology is brilliant with that in terms of like they did. I mean there's probably a fucking dictionary five hundred pages long of just scientology terms right like i mean everything that they do. You know from from what you know. The the they'll say s p's suppressive persons and like ot level eight that saints for operating fate always secrets right like they. They used the words like they on the bus next to you. You don't know what you seemingly innocuous words like like total and so people hearing that sounds like nonsense. You're just an idiot but like between you and the other cult members you're speaking of secret language and it's always feels it always feels special to be part of a group to be included again. A lot of people who fall into cults are dying for that sense of family and inclusion and acceptance and also deference to to do someone's will to some extent slightly. Just just just dying to fall in the arms of the of the cult leader so that they can nurture them. Yeah we're all looking for something like to complete us and many of us have learned. We have to find it and you know we have to work hard to find it and really have these people who emotionally are just so desperate for that that when somebody says hey i can give it to you. They believe it and really like we mentioned before. It has nothing to do with your intelligence. It's really about where your emotional state is and childhood trauma a lot of times. I'm sure there are a lot of people that are into scientology. You keep on going back to that as hot as crazy as i think. It's it's hard because it's like a major religion scientology. I mean jim. Jones has the highest score for kills but scientology is definitely in the lead for most successful cult like maybe mormonism holding first place. But but scientology was. I was even saying i can't remember. I don't know what i do want to say this. You know you you people you finish your listeners. The thought of jason your head. But what i was gonna say this is i don't know so there's a thing of acting classes read like of taking a bunch of acting classes and i'm telling you all of those all of those acting classes. I'm not kidding. All of them are called i. E. coli you know like we had another actor in the room. Who's taken about your acting like maybe there would be like look. This is not an cult. But i'm here to tell you that there's something about acting right and just being raw emotionally and a lotta times pulling your childhood emotional trauma people in that state where they immediately quickly identify the teacher with their like father and mother and guru and while that's the one thing i'm saying is that a lot of acting classes and the being strange spaces where the teachers i've seen famous allay teachers having people in class it was a must in masterclass that was part of had to either rub her feet or she had to rob your feet. You like see. Like which one. And i remember. I did not her feet. So but i've seen people rob her feet and i was like not important in that class. I think it was like my early classes. So i feel like i haven't gone but i still like more like season actors. Just rub her feet. Oh yeah and this could be like like people who aren't successful and this could also this like very successful actor following this. This teacher like all time. When i'm working like you'll you'll orca someone who's like a really famous person that's very skilled. Or whatever and acting and they have this weird like acting coach that they hired to be along. And it's like that's their weird leach guru the the the the inducted them into their cult of personality and even though they're millionaires and they're very successful. They still have this this this this. This little likes cubis fall. Follow them around and whisper little things ear to give them the magical power. I mean it's like cliche but the show berry like shows that with. Yeah yeah. I would woods portrayed in berry is is basically like there's a place like that on every block in hollywood you know like the the. There's there's a man or a woman. is Is running an acting. Cults within a stone's throw wherever you're at in los angeles. And i in fact. One of the famous acting schools that is actually like a recruitment center for scientology. It's called the beverly hills playhouse. And the beverly hills playhouse. I believe that's what it's called. They on the surface. They're just an acting school. And it's like all these famous actors have gone to the beverly hills playhouse. Whatever it's called beverly hills playhouse. But it's really just like a way to recruit you into scientology likely because actors are very susceptible. Yeah to scientology both because of where the now their offices are located here but also actives are looking for something big apart of scientology. It's good for tom. Cruise is it really bad for me. That could be also another. Yeah and yeah. That was one of l ron hubbard's genius strokes in the seventies it. I can't remember where it's called. It's called like operation like like mind face or some shit like that but but basically like it was like an operation that he put in you know into action which is which is like we need to get famous people into scientology's so they will trust famous people so they went after actors. They went after musicians. Like the jazz musician korea's a lifelong scientologist so many actors travolta and tom cruise are the biggest names. But like but i mean so many others like giovanni rec- and yadda yadda like Juliana from no not jillian more from natural born killers. I can't remember your name anyway. So so chateau she. She's a scientologist. Beck's a big scientologist. I mean he was got into it through his family because were scientologists but the the the they see the power in having celebrity members right because it legitimises it for people like people think like whoa this successful famous person that i love their art and work and they seem pretty stable and they seem pretty intelligent and grounded and they're really into this. There must be something going on here. And so like like hubbard celebrity and scientology. You get treated like you'll get abused and fucked with like like the majority of their of their followers. Do you get treated really. Well you get you. Get the stay at the celebrity center on franklin hollywood and you get to go to all the parties. They definitely have their their their claws in you. But it's in a different way than the rank and file right. Yeah you're like you'll get vip so that it's always fun club and it's always miserable. Yeah yeah exactly. Because they recognize that. That's the that's the public face of scientology are the celebrity members now. I wanna ask us something interesting. Because i was also in on non kalt with a very amazing person who's passed since then chris christianson and i really don't think that same christianson was so he. Some christian was He was a casting director from Mash right famous show and then he was cast for the were tightened or something or a battle. The titans he was also became a guest interactive. Who became an acting teacher. But also brand teacher to even like business people or anybody to basically bring up your confidence that you really know authentically who you are and you can use it in life and I've heard about it from j. about tim christianson. Because he listened to harbor town and dan harmon is a big fan of sam christianson and in many ways he i guess credits sam christianson would like dan coming to him so his own as an artist as are the artists the he has the right home. And so i you know have taken these classes sam's and what i noticed in those classes very interested in san samson pass and i only have good memories at him but is that sam was really all about like he was like a cranky old man but he was also like really passionate about a lot of things very liberal and he really liked actors and he had a lot of wisdom to offer and what i noticed in this classes. Guys have taken the his masterclasses by invitation. Only whatever is that people themselves were forcing him to be in the cult leader like it was weird like it was like he was pushing that away and he was always talking about the task at hand and the actors walking shakespeare and had his passion talked about but people were always like just like on their knees in front of him and people. I mean actors actors. Yeah but it was a weird thing. I saw him like almost like walk away from it every day. Like you will come. There and people are just like sam. Sam oh my god see him like i worship you. People were insanity and he almost like head to physically walk away upstairs to his office. I it would. It reminds me of is like like like jerry garcia in a similar way. We're like he. You know the grateful. Dead and jerry garcia had this like a massive following of people who are just like like devout fans and they all they tried to turn jerry garcia into like a god-like figure and he always rejected that and hated. Because he's he's not like a cult leader and he he's not he doesn't want to just put people make people submit under his will but like people were always asking that of them and it's got to be hard to to be in a position of power so to speak and not go into the dark side like i mean. That's the darth vader analogy is. Is that you know like like if you're teaching a philosophy or you're really becomes like you're a teacher of some sort or another and if your students like they might try and four sudi become the cult leader that they desire and so people who have good in them will resist that resist the temptation and people who are who don't have as much good in them will will succumb to it. And we'll end up giving them what the followers demand which is which is like day affiliation and and then divan demand fealty from their from their followers. You know to have them kiss their feet and worship them and it's like you know you ever seen the movie the man who would be king joe the the movie it's a everyone should watch the man who would be king. It's a john huston. sean connery. Who just passed away. I isn't it with michael. Cain and it's these two like you know kind of cockney british guys like one hundred twenty years ago who who who come up with his great movie who who come upon this this like a remote tribe in the middle east and sean connery becomes their godlike convinced that he's like he's a god it's come to them it's return to them to lead them and so so it's like these guys are just kind of their con-artists just scammers. They're just looking to get rich. But but as soon as the people start worshiping. Sean connery as a god. He succumbs to the to the intoxication of and he becomes addicted to it and he doesn't wanna leave. He's like he's like. I want to stay here and be this. God like this is as good as it gets. These people think i'm a divine power. You so the temptation. The temptation of cult leader must be through the roof right. Like i think a lot of these people. They've created the world that they live in right like the. It's not like they just showed up one day and all of a sudden people were worshipping them like the most of the leaders had that express goal in mind when when they started the colts. But but sometimes in other cases like sam christianson or like jerry garcia and others. I'm sure they're doing this cool work. And it's so inspiring the people that people worship them as gods and try to enforce them in the and it's very interesting what you just said because the the is in the work right because i think in some ways it's almost a metaphor for acting itself where actors one who like the great actor is one who keeps there is on the task like on the acting on the other person and or the feelings whatever it might be the object sort of the acting like almost like the object of meditation but people who are like in their eagle. You can always tell when people acting from their ego. There's a there's a difference. I think it's so common with for the target of people have actors you have deadheads who not. All dead heads are the same. But there's a lot of people who like jim music and alternative music and take lsd. Because they're not getting something in their lives or actors they can be a very insecure bunch. Who are looking for validation. That's no like secret. So who is the perfect person to become a cult follower someone who's insecure looking for validation and these You have a two prong approach with anybody who's like an acting teacher 'cause one if they are casting and if they're like anyone with influence will you'll do whatever they say just so they don't say. Hey sasha's really bad to work with and blacklist you so you'll rub someone's feet just so you don't get fucking blacklisted. And then you also have the level of you know i'm not i'm not booking. I'm not auditioning teacher. Says i'm great. And they say that. I need to do these things. So you're going to naturally like want to keep paying that teacher keeping around them because they're giving you the thing that you're saying. Hey world this is what i need and also like this sometimes use those physical tools that are almost like a perfect to like if you're shooting a movie about called leaders. It's almost like that scene has to be in the movie. I remember going to this one acting class. My friend alex recommend its glass and there was like a kid like a younger actor who was like going through some emotional shit and we like the attitude forced all of us to get up and give them a group hug. I remember like i didn't know this guy. He was a couple years. And i was like sitting next to him so it was like the first person to hug him and it was very uncomfortable because this guy and his body hogging this guy and then this like other people like hugging and layers around us and it was the weirdest thing and i remember coming back onto jv. Like i don't fucking cog this guy you don't want to be part of it but it was like we're all doing it so it was like a lotta time wasted. It's a group mind starts happening. It's like the the the theory of crowds with hitler. Like if you get a big crowd together you can. You can just have people do anything as long as everyone sees. What what's going on around them is happening now. This thing with the hugging. It's actually another distinguishing characteristic of a cult. Which is called love bombing and so a lot of times in the colts. You'll you'll you'll see the opposite of were like they'll have sessions where it's all about hate and everyone's screaming at each other you know and kind kinda like primal scream therapy and then but it's all if that happens it's always followed by love bombing which is just everybody going. I love you. I love you i love it. It's like it's like depriving you of the heroin and then giving you the heroin right shoot main lining it for you and and it's give and take the kind of programs you or or programs you your mind this away. That's interesting because that actually reminds me of the writing class where this one guy. The teacher who then later had the that i mentioned earlier. Podcast sometimes i go to classic you just like to learn how to break story right for. Tv like how far would you but you over sudden like leave their. He'll gee i'm black emotionally like i'm been worn out like because emotionally like. He was going to something he would get up and like he'd be almost like on the stage like crying sometimes as he would like like right lines for other people's carriages he would cry and so she won't day but it was like really beautiful performance so this is very interesting. Yeah and it's funny to me. Because then i compare my mind to sam christianson and he was like which was see like a grumpy grandpa but it was not for him at all like he would throw up like before he would have a group hug because he always just wanted to talk about the work at hand and give people tools how to become more confident. Artists were aware of who they are. It's it's like if the work is. If the purpose of the work is to have the person grow that's not a an attribute of a if the end result is that you're going to give fealty to to the leader surrender power and and just kinda give yourself to the cult leader. That's that's a cult tendency so because it's like a teacher a passionate or inspirational teacher could easily go either way right but but i if at the end of the class it's about it's about now go off into the world. That's not a cult. I i if if the lessons is is take these tools and and live in my home and become my slave late like like you know. Take these these lessons. You've learned and just become addicted to my to my give and take of love and hate then then that becomes a cult because it's not a worship of an ideology it's a worship of a singular personality and so crazy 'cause i come from the culture like russia where you know to stalin and lenin before that and then certainly see currently what's happening you know the voldemort whose name madonna you know pronounce but it is a dictatorship at this point russia officially data ship. And i you know. I grew up in the nineties. Where when like we had sort of semblance of democracy for the first time and it was really hard for me to accept. Russia actually became a dictatorship again. But i remember. It was very funny in the nineties when For the first time because like religion became introduced but religion was like weird weirdly introduced like in the sense like like russian orthodox churches were built. Which is now their official church of russia and sort of like together with the government. They basically take money from previously. It was anti anti-establishment to be in a religion. Like the pope with the rolex like now. It's the same but them up. But then we started getting those brochures so oldest like george of later. Day seines baptists oldest. Like i wanna say american. But i don't know if they are form of christianity is the right way to put these studies coming into russia to be like. Oh this is like a country that has democracy so we're going to try to get some followers here right like or it's more like the government now will let us wander around to become missionaries in on their land. So we're certainly going to go for that. Probably have a huge presence in russian. Now it's all very like orthodox church is they've all been killed devolvement like the pay pagent pay pagans. There will be declared pagans and they're on the pagan list letter. They sands Check today but remember like having this brochures and just being curious and being like twelve years old and be like what is this like all jesus christ like okay like what is the story like almost like because i just like books and like they were pretty pictures. Jesus marielle like our it kind of boring same story. Whatever and. I remember my friend's mom. Best friends gelinas mom who is a doctor. And she's very hardcore like a scientists like she's a marie curie type like super like hardcore sciences. She was sasha you stop bring into shed her house she's like we gonna become yoon. Galina going to be enrolled in a cult in the she was very afraid or was like becoming a baptist or something called incensio up until today. My mom also talks about our distant relatives who became baptists or later they sands look day are in the cult sasha. I don't know if they are because they might be because they probably have like a local leader right that they probably wash. Yeah i it's like here's the thing i it's like if you're part of some group is spiritual religious group and you're still able to live your life and you don't have to like you like you're not a slave to the organization or leader. It's it's the same as any other religion like to me. I don't think it's harmless. But but but but if you're if you're able to live your life have a life separate from the from the organization then it's less it's less of a cult in my mind if a cult a cult because your entire life is the is the cult and and you have loved ones. That aren't the cult. they're no longer. Your love goes a little bit of that happening with some of my distance relatives. That's probably when when when they ask you to to detach from the nonbelievers it's wise from the from the view from the standpoint of the cult because because they know that the your loved ones who were not part of this cult are going to pull you away. It'd be like you're you're going crazy like this is this is bad so those people that's why it's inherent to a cult to to to detach you from your family and loved ones because seeming in scientology. Like if you're if you're labelled a suppressive person The if you're excommunicated from scientology like see your daughter gets kicked out of scientology. You're not supposed to communicate with your daughter because your daughter is essentially possessed by a demonic. Spirit that is that is trying to destroy you like an organization that teaches that is one of their tenants is is is in my mind. Evil and certainly categorizes a call. It's a bad thing regardless of your life. It could be anything. It could be video games. If that's how extreme you take it that it becomes to dictate your life not good yeah such ruining your day to day life and your life becomes the the cult like like there's nothing good that can come of that and then that's why i have this question to joe. What do you think. And a lot of our friends referred. I'm sure you've heard referred to this as a joke non joke. Where does you see be at its height. Stand like edits. Golden age of improv. Like five six years ago ten years ago. what are you how. How colty was it at that point. It's interesting it's really interesting. Because i think it's similar to the acting studios and teachers and coaches type of thing. What once you're dealing with. It's a business as well. Well then it's like the uc before xdrive isn't for you to have be obsessed with them. That's just what they helped them sell classes all products. So i think for them even if you hated them but you're buying or sending them a check every month it'd be fine northam versus a cult. There's more to it. There's more desire. I think the cult type of situation more came from the people. I think it was desperate people that could essentially turn anything into a kalt. If given the opportunity which you see be unfortunately did give the opportunity because they did avas system of. Hey we need to sell classes because that's our business so let's you know have this carrot of performing on our stages if you take classes which is arguable. I don't even think that's the biggest issue with them and what they were doing but i. I think it's just an unfortunate thing where you have a lot of desperate actors. Comedians and people in the entertainment industry who were given the validation said they turned it into a cult. Yeah i agree. Absolutely i think we i i like i knew people and you might know the same people who like head tattoos on their arms and like and then i would be like ha. That's colty and they would go. Yeah like you see the church. And mike matt besser is like the jesus but like also laughing at it and i think you should be very good job with like my really positioning themselves as leaders as masha cult leaders like they could've ride like matt besser going to be like all over the place like i mean the the have had statues of the founders of amy poehler and that besser matt walsh and union roberts like if they had like a carved a bust of their heads in the lobby. Like the then. I think it would veer more into a cult because there's a cult of personality. I mean like you get that a little bit with the dell close people you know like like like but but yeah that was closer to but still like myths about him and legend. It comes from like a teacher from a very influential teacher. Who inspires people. And i i agree with you. I think the scene is more of like a cult that the cultists tried to create rather than the founders trying expressly trying to create a cult. I think it evolved to that naturally much like like a million grateful dead heads like start worshipping jerry garcia as their spiritual leader. And he's sitting there being like. I didn't ask for any this like i don't want. I don't want you guys to worship what what's wrong with you i. So i think that that's what we'll always distinguished like and things things like like the. Those are influential schools. Where where the the membership probably kind of like brought ruin upon the organization but rather than the than the leaders doing so. Yeah because i mean at certain point if you are an obsessive personality and you are obsessed with improv and ucb and you like so many people myself included for few years that was the dream is to be unused stagefright like beyond the herald team. And i i mean at some point you find yourself unhappy and then kind of like almost joined to blame at the theta which. I didn't do a lot. Actually i always thought it wasn't thanked the theaters fault. That like i was unhappy. Be at some point. But i think a lot of people like turned against. Uc be felt like things weren't handled. Well at this whole herald team was like just making a lot of field vice all over the place. But i i think i think with ucb. It was more complicated than Backlash for a call personality. I think it was just more of a labor issue and happening. Yeah So i think it's more that but i think a lot of people. Did you now find extra Vitriol to spew. Because they'd also felt they've wasted years at the theater not getting the enlightenment and career opportunities that they promise themselves from which is exactly it is. Bs that like they would feel like the wasted years because no matter how many years i've spent you i feel like that's just with formed my comedic voice and writing and all that stuff so you and let's take a moment here. Let let's let's bring it back to the subject of actual leaders. And i just want to bring up a couple of things that i think are funny slash disturbing but mostly funny like part of the reason i love leaders is because of things like these like so for instance like shoko asahara leader of ocean. Rikio would his bath water dirty bathwater for like hundreds of dollars a bottle and his followers were drinking right. I mean just the fact that somebody can pull that off that i can give you my dirty bathwater and you think it's just like drinking it. So they they can they can mingle with the co. Mingle with the energy of the universe like well. Actually bell delfin the popular internet's ebay girl. also solter bathwater only sold it for thirty dollars a bottle So shoko she'll go is killing it. He he was getting way more money for his bath. Water and you know and you know another thing is lately. It's l. ron hubbard. What's the hilarious thing he did. Okay well when toward the end of his life when he was getting old and and he even though you're not supposed drugs in scientology was addicted all these pharmaceuticals and just a mess. He would send that he really low voice right. When you talk. Alarm ron hubbard. So he he had this council of young women that were like sixteen to twenty four and they were all like really attractive athletic. Good good looking. Women give you imagine like like like like a like a group of twenty models. Whatever dressed up in these like space suits and he would send he would send them to deliver messages to people sometimes threatening messages like they've show up at some law firm and and deliver l ron hubbard's threat to them but the but they had to always say in elrod voice so you can imagine this twenty year old like like vogue model girl in like a spandex spacesuit going up into your into your and be like this hour on hubbard submit to drop the lawsuit and then would leave. I mean like that's fucking hilarious bathwater. I believe i would like with the bathwater lady. Like it's obviously you know like someone's like fetish or whatever but like i mean like marshall applewhite from heaven's gate cult like he had like if you remember that when they were discovered all of his cult members who committed suicide. They're all wearing nikes right. That was a big thing that we're in nike shoes and they all had like five dollars and twenty cents in their pocket and so the thing behind the nikes they were just on sale. We should get new shoes for when we all kill ourselves so the nikes that they bought were just on sale. That's the reason ed nikes on. And then they'd five dollars and some change in their pocket was because marshall applewhite thought it was a funny joke. Like we're hitching a ride to a spaceship. It's bus fare. You hit you right on a spaceship without bus fare and demand. Do you all keep money in your pocket. Yeah exactly when you kill yourself. They all had the same amount of money in their pocket. And so it's all very macabre and an horrible and disturbing. But i just find this kind of stuff hilarious. Because it's it's just an example of how far like like like like what mankind is capable of likely like what the mind of a madman is capable of achieving and most of the time that results in horrific Disasters right like and just horrible crimes against people. But like i just love i just. I'm so fascinated by like these people who just think of this wacky shit and they put in they will it into existence focused their will and they make things appear in reality that didn't exist before that's fascinating but then like what's the deal. What's the bad deal with rush niche whereas near. She's like seems like a nice dude. No he did an attack. I think i think he will with the rise up the documentary but like his his. Okay the bhagwan rajneesh. He's he's a weird case because he had this massive following tons of money like worldwide. I mean it was like bigger than scientology. They had so much cash and but oddly. Enough the bhagwan rise niche was just kind of an idiot like us just kind of like a little things about things that she does have some interesting like. Enlightenment took from somebody. He's just it's crackerjack fucking philosopher saying anything that any other leader. We're all parts of one conscious mood within each of and then like the the mind is never enjoying the president because it's always seeking joy but is not enjoying joined the moment i. I mean like luther. All about for the bagua was was money. He loves rolls. Royces of one hundred rolls royces. He was treated like a god everywhere. You went so there's the personal fulfillment of that and what happened with that cult is that he was too passive and so like his number two. I can't remember what her name is. But but she she runs at me of the yoga lady from yoga house in pasadena. But she she. She looks very similar but but but she his number two who is the person on like. He was the one in like in the house on the hill that no one can talk to and he walked by and wave with his creepy is and everyone would like just fall in love with them but like his number two was the one who is the real. She was like the david miscavige in a lot of ways. Like like the one. That's really controlling really consolidating power for vengeance. You know and they did a ton of horrible things they tried to. They tried to poison an entire town to sway the votes of the get onto the city council and they've done a lot of really bad things but but but but it wasn't kapadia article keeps it very clean about him it. Does you have to kind of go farther to see. Because i thought the same thing i started reading i was like oh interesting. I wonder if this is an example of someone who lead like a cult but and then it ended up i see like bioterror event some and the oregon and they had like they took over this little town in oregon and the because of their numbers in their money. They're able to completely run this town so like the instead of normal police in the town. It was all rajneeshee followers with automatic weapons. You know walking around this town. With like ak forty seven ak pulling assault rifles like and these are supposed to be like followers of a of of like of like super chill eastern yoga school. You know and and they're walking around with with with with automatic weapons and trying to poison people. I mean like it's just a mafia. Yeah but i will say like with with the rise me. She people like. I think that was more of the. It was more of a case. Where like the cult. The cult followers ended up poisoning the well and bringing it down like that that organization could have easily just subsisted based on based on the cult of personality of the bhagwan but like it could have been a harmless thing but their their thirst for like money and power ended up corrupting the whole organization. But like it's less it's less the bhagwan in that instance and more. Sheila was her name. Sheila was that was the number to show the sheila. But so if you want to see the movie you guys are priorities. Seen but wild wild country is a fantastic documentary. All about this. I mean i can just watch tonight with you. I watch it with you know i. I don't know again. I it's interesting i think with And i mean it in the best possible way like there's so many teachers come out of india right. There's the culture of an remember. There was one who root gurus and the guru is a lotta times is treated closer to your heart a true teacher. The mother and father like it's just like for anybody to find their grew and to treat them closer than their parents. And i remember there was like one lady. She was calling sam christianson guru and she was talking about that because like this in her culture is like and i remember he was pushing that notion away because it was it was like three dangerous. It was india's an interesting place because it's really like like the the ground zero of cults really because there is this tradition of baba's and god milk. It's award language. Godman gotten these holy men who who can who who you follow and you give yourself up to. It's it's probably like the earliest cults and cult leaders in the world but not all of them are bad necessarily but but like the. It's definitely culturally there. It's a lot more accepted Way of let cult cheerily. But but yeah so. I mean it's dark subject and it. It's i feel guilty being so entertained and obsessed with it because it is at the end of the about real people ruining their lives relate figuratively or or really and But i don't know like i i'll just i'll never it'll never grow old to me like i just because again there's so much truth you can find fr from studying these stories and you can apply them to like you know like like trump and his followers and the cunanan people and stuff. It's like it's the colts mentality which is like it's like so many of us are susceptible to and i just. I think it's important to study this stuff because because you know the only way to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past start to learn about history and to avoid things like this because they always come in like new forms and mysterious new packages. Is it anything. Oh jaw or j. You'd like to add before we go to quick rating Now i guess just that. I think we're discussing shown anything. It's just that Colt nature is Inherent in our human nature. And it's comes in little sprinkles here and there throughout the world. It's just it at its maximum form really but we see it everywhere you desire to connect with another human being a lot of times to be part of the group right soon be part of the trump is survival so he you really goes back through survival and being afraid of being ostracized more than anything and sort of like find your own people and it's if you don't find your own whatever that like meet my be and maybe you end up with the wrong people. Yeah be careful out there we'll save. Let's do a quick radio. I don't know. I feel like we should do a little like scale interest. Put a couple of Each of us a one least favourite and won a fascinating. How 'bout one like. Wow fascinating call theater. And then one. That's do they use it do anything right because most of them are do by the way. A lot of women Well last last Jody or should we just make it up as we go no idea. Yeah i do this. But you know i would say as far as like. Maybe i'm just gonna use our typical scale I'm going to like. Let's say at the interest of in dysfunctional people. Let's say i find conman to be interesting to me on a scale. I would say an six for For colts. wow because they're killing people I think it's just no because it's not really. It's just about how interesting now. I don't think we're i. I'm not judging because obviously if we're if it's good or bad at zero and if anything it's just bad so what are you going to read it above that i. Yeah yeah did you. Did you finish that Just that yeah it's like I don't find them super interesting. Just because i think it ends up playing out relatively the same just with different colors. Yeah a oh. Okay i am. I'm actually going to do that. Scale and then also throw in a separate scale. You'll see what i'm doing so for the called leaders. Yeah i'm gonna actually take cult leaders against moore. Magicians like magicians not. Magicians like black magic but people were like to do bajic like in the magic council copperfield. The other guy. Ricky oh ricky jay ricky jay. The magicians for me are two. I don't give a shit like i don't give a shit and like my interest in reading bot. Magicians like how do they do it. What's the deal what's to story. How did they learn. I think maybe some conman. But i'll stick with the magicians and then the cold leaders think are at six my lead trysted and then go out there reading and like i forget everything i read anyway. Since it's impossible to interpret whatever this like this bit that we're doing what i'm supposed to say this number system i'm just gonna i'm gonna create my own my own show which which which is which is okay who is gonna be the all time best cult leader right right like who's who's the beginning right. Who's the fucking killed it. Yeah i you'd say more offensive. But l ron hubbard. Our i was going to say something and thirteen. So l ron hubbard. He's the best. He's the most successful leader. You could say mormonism lately like a more successful called. But john smith like he got he got lynched by a mob before the became a church. Like our ron hubbard and got to create this thing and baskin. Its glory until an inevitable. Sad death in a in a trailer in the desert and well he. He wasn't poor but he'd been yet. He was living in like disgusting. Flea-ridden trailer It's probably kill them. but allegedly but but It's like who's the worst cult leader in terms of not worst interns like didn't didn't accomplish anything but like probably one of the worst most sinister leaners shoko asahara shoko asahara option rikio really. There's a reason they don't execute criminals in japan. I think the last fifteen of the last twenty people have been executed in japan over the last thirty years have been like shoko asahara and his followers a year or two ago they had a bunch of them in jail and amish areco was gaining gaining strength again and so as a gesture of like this ship they took all these prisoners who are on death row and just executed them all in like a day so like this research. The you'll see why i'm this. He's by the most sinister evil motherfucker out there now. Who okay now. The third most failure though. No no no no no. This is who is the coolest who is the cruellest who the coolest co-leader ever and it's all listed. Curly undeniably will also croly. But it's undeniably charles. Manson charles manson was like like. I mean he's just he's like a tiny little scraggly rat man and just even though it's so dark and horrible what he did. He's he's the definition of cool like like he hung out with. Dennis will dennis wilson from the from the beach boys. He was recording. Terry melcher he he. He was partying it. Up in the laurel canyon in the sixties like charles manson is the rock and roll leader and and for for that he will always have a warm place in my heart. He's also horrible. Human being no for sure that goes saying all his co. Okay just making sure. Nobody's editing editing. Just that one bit online. No one's paying attention to what i had to say leaders but but for charles manson. He's looking short. Is who is the most like failed failed. He's in history but the damn he did it wrong. Oh i mean the biggest fail. Son of the cult leader genealogy fucking guy. Keith rainier the nexium guy. That guy just like like he just. He's just boring. I haven't even watched the vow you know like it's not interesting it's boring it's like it's like the at the height of banality you know. And like he didn't even do anything cool like he didn't even have a bunch of his followers murder themselves or like or he didn't like trying to poison a town like the bagua on. I mean like he didn't do anything cool. All he did was he got laid a little bit and then just like had a bunch of rich people give them money and now he's like he's he's he's just so mediocre like like low goal like accessible goals. Yeah and and he just looks like he looks like a total slob is haircut and he he just looks all looks. Looks like a little like a little frodo baggins like a little hobbit. He's he's just not impressive at all. And you like hobbits so. This is my love habits. But like he's one of the shitty roberts he's one of the ones that never left the shire grade Keith rainier near key through neary whatever. It is lamest cult leader. Wow wow well that covers a lot. I was surprised how far we've gone on this podcast. We cover it. I can go further. I know i know you gotta go. I gotta go parter okay. Great wash for coming onto this. Podcast really appreciate it.

"Yeah. It's not a news. But it is the stuff that you'll really be talking about the rest of the day. Dow trending with Riggins on the ace and TJ show, I'll get to the top trending topic in just a second is a very special day, and you need to know about it. But I did you know that cheese whiz is now qualified as a healthy nutritious product. Really, yes. Because there are certain fats in there. They're called c eles CLA or gone gated Luminol EAC acid. Yeah. I used to take that all the time as a supplement really feeling it naturally occurs in meat and dairy products helped helps burn fat and Bill muscle cheese. Whiz has a lot of it.

Out the window either way. I was confused because I haven't seen that in forever. I saw the most shocking littering thing I've seen in recent memory, somebody was packing up a pack of cigarettes, which is just rare anyone they unwrap the plastic throw the plastic out the window. And then a second later, they take the foil that actually covers the actual cigarettes. And then that goes out the window and oh, gosh, two times like at a stoplight Silla feigns trash if you can see through it. They're put that on.

By the way, if you wanna be called Lucy don't put your name in parentheses next to the word Lucy. I had to go through it Mark that out twice assurance. I have been working for my company for couple of years and enjoy what I do. I one of three managers at my location myself in one of the other managers have gotten along great for the past several years and have become good friends. We've bonded over our dislike of the other manager at our location. The manager that I'm friends with even attended my wedding. Last week. I was caught off guard when this manager told me he has formed feelings for me more than just friendship. I have absolutely no feelings for this manager other than friendship. He is around sixteen years older than me and married with kids. I have also married, and we just had our first child last year. My question is what should I do? My coworker has asked to keep this between us. However, I feel dishonest to my husband by not telling him. Wherever I don't want him to be concerned of anything since I have no interest in this guy. And the majority of our employees are men. I also feel weird around this co worker and have been trying to avoid him. But just don't know. Now, what to do please help Lucy? So a co worker came onto her, and she doesn't know within Hiller husband heard is it coming onto her when he says, hey, this once you don't have feelings for you is that considered coming onto her or would have been more. Hey, let's get out of here and go do I don't know what what the ten. Okay, depends on where he's pointing on himself when he says, I have feelings good point TJ as you can see I'm having some really. Feelings are you right? This general region. Very sensitive. My hardest full. And so is. Right. Though. Yeah. Apparently, probably do you think she should tell her husband? No because she may need that guy someday. Her husband may make our mad, and she may you know, what you're making me feel like I'm not wanted. And I'm not sexy anymore because I've had your kids in your running around acting like you're so much hotter than I am. She got a little something in pocket of keep their Riggins. Should she? Tell her husband, of course. Really? Yeah. Okay. Sas? I say, yes, she should tell her things. She should. Yes. Because she's uncomfortable at our work workplace. She said she didn't like them. So yes, I think she should should she report him now that she's uncomfortable at the workplace if it continues. Yes, if he starts touching her and sitting her messages and things like that. That may maybe. Yeah. Britt right now is just a he's made. Right. Just two comments. No indication from what she said that that's that. He's going to start doing that other stuff, right? Hey, I think is cool mom has a little secret. Because what is the husband deserve nothing? He's a man he doesn't deserve. He's probably got his own secrets. He's probably told a bunch of women he has feelings for them down there at the workplace. So one trolley or one twenty three eighty five one triple eight forty one as TJ or Facebook and Twitter. So the guy came onto her apparently hasn't done anything else. He just said that he again, if you missed it. He said, he informed me, he has feelings for me more than just friendship, should she? Tell her husband. That's the question. He saying looks like I'm getting a little too big for my britches. The results the TJ show podcasts are your way to stay connected.

Now, the Asia TJ show presents a group therapy update. We gave you pretty unique situation. This lady is a manager one of the other managers in her office told her that after years of friendship guy was even at our wedding. He's formed more than just friendship feeling for her. She says, I have absolutely no feelings for this manager other than friendship. He is around sixteen years older than me and married with kids. I'm also married. We just had our first child last year. I have no interest in this, man. My question is what should I do? Co-worker has asked me to keep this between us. However, I feel dishonest to my husband by not telling him, however, don't wanna tell him and be concerned anything's, I have no interest in the guy in the majority of our employees are men. Well, you know, I'm always Mr. silver lining as a matter of fact that that should be my job, title, TJ, Mr. silver lining, and look at it this way, you had a baby year ago, and you're already so hot. From having a baby that guys willing to step out on his family for you. See he. Yeah. That's the first thing you do is stop and recognize yourself for being the strong woman in hot that you are. Strong hot woman. You are. Hey, hot mom coming through itchy. Off the Donut. So let you the majority of people seem to believe she should tell her husband. But it's it's closer than I thought it's like like sixty forty Lucy. Welcome to the ace and TJ show. Why do you think she should tell her husband? I think she should tell her husband just because she feels like she wants to. And this manager is making her feel uncomfortable. Because she thought they had this friendship when in reality. He just likes her, and she doesn't feel the same way. I mean, he's making her feel uncomfortable. He just said that. And then they went on about the business. He said I also feel weird around this co worker and have been trying to avoid him. But just don't know what to do. Now. Like, he's trying to avoid this guy, which obviously she's like low what the heck, you know. So. I just I feel like you're you're supposed to be able to tell your spouse, everything, and the fact that she wants to I I don't feel like in this person is sixteen years older than her. She obviously has no interest. Who would have any interest in a guy at least sixteen years older than she gross disgusting baby with her best friend seems like so her husband? You're saying at twenty seven you would have no interest in somebody like forty seven years old. Yeah. No way. No way. Gross. That's why I mean, I I'm not hating people who enjoy you know, have a couple of that way. But I mean this she's married, you know, so. Yep. Nasty. I agree. Thanks lizzie. Thanks for calling me in the head. But you gave riggings a good laugh at my expense. That's thanks. Thanks. That was really funny, obviously. Dating someone at least sixteen years older than you. And the reason that we're laughing that because ace's girlfriend is. Couple of. Centuries yogurt than he is. Twenty something years younger. Yeah. Couple of decades change, right? Thank you Lucy. Paul says this is the same as you tell your kids. If you ask yourself, should I do this? Then that means you should not. She is asking should I keep this from a husband? So the answer's clearly no if he found that it would create trust issues. What it here's my thing though. Wouldn't if you're her husband, would you be would you be shocked to find out if you found out, oh, the co worker hit on her? Would you be shocked? No. When I be shocked to find out somebody hit all my girlfriend. No, I just think that would expect it doesn't mean I wanted to happen. But it's that's life. I mean, I'm sure men have hit on Jody. She probably doesn't tell teacher about it all the time. But I'm sure may have hit on her before gross. You need to think about this. There's so much. There's so much at risk either way, you know, it's a bad situation that he's put you in. But. If you come out with it and all before you even know whether or not it's going to he's going to talk about it anymore doing anything along those lines again. I mean when you're having a bad day. And you're having a what you think is not so cute day been up with the baby all night. There's nobody at work that's going to be there to complement you. And nobody that's going to be your friend there. Like this guy's wanted to be friends. Right. Okay. When you need that little ego. Boost the best way for a woman to have an ego boost to have some old man chasing around behind. Makes her feel really good. Yeah. What did she does? He's too old to do any damage because you know, he if he's chasing you he can't catch you. If you don't want him to write with his Walker, even if he got new tennis balls on the legs. Yeah. He wouldn't be able to no one scarupa no-one scared of Colonel Sanders. Can get you. I'm just I think she should tell her husband. They should fight about. Her husband's should fight that guy.

It's going to be setting. Dying. Reagan's thing. All all this is so funny. Go ahead. Reagan. I live at this place called sky house, and I had the maintenance people up at my apartment yesterday. And which was they're wonderful. I love them all very nice, and I had them come look at my dishwasher because. I wanted to run faster. That was taking too long turns out. I was I wasn't right. That's just it's an eco-friendly dishwasher. And. In the meantime, I had been I decided not to use it. Just in case something was wrong with it which there wasn't. But I began to let my dishes pile up in the sink because I didn't have a dishwasher to work with and for this was on. Saturday that I started to call and so- Saturday Sunday Monday. I did not have the use of a dishwasher. So for three days. I let dishes pile up in my double sink, and it got pretty bad. I mean, I I do a fair bit of cooking, and they were over the lip of the counter. So I mean, they were stacked. And then I add to overflow onto the counter pots and pans and multiple plates, lots of cups and every time I walked by. I thought this is terrible. I I don't I'm running out of dishes, and you know, I have to wait for them to come in. And look at the dishwasher, I don't know what I'm gonna do. So I'm from issue. I started I began eating off of Tupperware lids. Because I didn't have any plates. I've only got a setting for like four three or four. I've got three four dinner plates three or four goals. So I was eating off lids. And I even had spaghetti and meatballs off the lid off a Tupperware. And not once did it occur to me that I could turn on the sink get a little bit a dishwasher dishwashing, soap and just wash him with my hand is like a like they did for what I would imagine of years. It didn't even occur to me that you could do that. So you didn't think I don't wanna do that. I'll eat off this Tupperware live it because that's understandable to if you decided you know, what it's not. I don't feel. It has some of that lays. Yeah. Never even crossed my mind. I looked at him probably fifteen times and got man I wish I could clean those. I wish there was a way to clean a dish without a dishwasher, and it n- and I laugh. About it yesterday because oh, yeah. I probably could just like clean them. How many times did you get mad because it was taken people too long to come look at your dishwasher every time and it wasn't even broken to begin. With didn't do it as quickly as you said. Or did they say these to be empty when we get there? No. So you were keeping an empty. You just thought it's not something's wrong with it. I'm not gonna use it at all yet. Because what on the dishwasher, there's a two and a half hour setting on it? That's how long it takes because it's high efficiency. Yeah. But there is a one hour wash that uses more water, which you can just set it to that. But I don't know really how to use a dishwasher I'd never really messed with just start. You put the soap in you hit start. Yeah. But it took so long. I was like, Shirley something's wrong with this thing. Surely. But it never even crossed your mind. Not kill. They had fixed. It could've just wash these by hand. Yeah. And it never crossed your mind to wash one of them. We needed a plate just to wash one plate, not even because I guess that would across your mind, and you would have thought. Well, why don't I just do all of them this way from doing one? Yeah. Right. No, no. No, I didn't have any silverware. I even thought like I was like can I eat spaghetti with a butter knife. Forks, and then I was down to like the dessert spoons to eat stuff like the little tinies moons. And then I even had everybody's got one spoon in their drawer that they just hate for some reason, you don't have any reason why you don't like that spoon. But you just don't use it. I was using that spoon. It was. I mean, really you think you have problems. It was a nightmare. Thank god. They got there yesterday. Yeah. What you've done. If you've gotten today. I don't know. But they they looked at. There's nothing wrong with it. It's working fine. Just gotta look at the setting stupid. Okay. That makes sense. But even that makes it worse because you're so into technology that one would say he didn't think about doing it by hand because he's so into technology. But then again, the technology is what messed you up because you didn't look into the technology enough to figure out there was nothing wrong with the dishwasher. It's amazing the dishwasher and the washing machine their fifteen settings. I don't know what any of them do. And they saw what the hell's esteem washed the guys that came in and looked at the dishwasher, they saw that your dishes were still upheld up. Yeah. For no reason disgusting. That I've been more acceptable. If it would just been 'cause you're lazy. Yeah. Lazy? Trump's stupidity idiot idiot. Was that should have gone over there for you? Yeah. Down trending with Riggins. Just mentioned it yesterday. My job over. The kitchen anyway, right? Why is it a special day today? I'll tell you in less than ten minutes. I'm now trying to get to know the ace and TJ show. I live live by the motto the more meat the better. Now, you know, the TJ show. Give us five minutes. And you'll know a little something about a lot of things. It's now trendy with Riggins on the ACC J show. All right. I'll give you the top turning top. If you're in just a second. It's a special day, but today is also very special because its thirtieth anniversary of the creation of the World Wide Web thirty years ago today the internet was created so hashtag web thirty is trending right now. The eighty nine I believe so. Yep. A lot of people started with dial up fifty six k modems some people had like twelve I believe we had an eighteen k modem and then the day, I got broad like a broadband. I think what they caught in college was a glorious glorious day was in your dorm or out into an apartment is in my dorm. And then I could watch, you know, adult content without buffering and all that stuff. I mean, it's amazing in a young man's. Life. You didn't buffer at all while you were watching. No. Of course, never heard it referred to that either. But hey, whatever, you young people call it. I'll go along with polish in a buff. Well, buffering and then the day I moved in had adult content playing as my roommate's parents came into the dorm room honest to God it happened. That's his little brother pointed out to me because hey, man on your computer right there. So. So. You think I broke out in high break out in hives when I get nervous. I mean, I looked like a cherry tomato. Remind me how it was the little brother. He was in middle school probably eighth grade. Okay. Yep. Yep. That happened TJ. This might be for you. Because no one loves the Applebee's Blondie more than TJ. I love a blonde which is in cooked in like a cast iron. It's a white chocolate brownie in a cast iron Skillet. There's something new called a position he a cinnamon toast crunch cereal poopie, which was basically a sugar cookie. Yeah. Cooked inside a cast iron Skillet for one with cinnamon toast crunch vanilla ice cream and cinnamon sugar, glazed I'll be all over. That sounds incredible combines a lot of TJ favorite things a sugar cookie. Cinnamon toast crunch. Any type of glaze any type of? Yeah. That looks amazing ice-cream this picture is kind of taken over right now. I can. And I really would have said the cinnamon toast crunch not so much. But once you see it. No. That really that looks like it's working overtime. Yes. This reminds me, you know, I always talk about how my daughter, and I are so much alike. We have the we did that personality profile quizzed thing, and we have the same personality type and only four percent of the population has that personality. But I found something that's a huge difference between us that she has in common with my wife. That's a it's a deal breaker. I think. They would rather have rather than ice cream day would rather have snow cones reas regular old hard ice snow combs rather than ice cream. Yes. Wow. Interesting. I think I'm on board with that too. What a snow cone a soft ice snow cone. But the only only my daughter prefers soft serve ice cream to that. But sufficient regular scooping it out ice cream. She ever smoke home. That's craziness. I can't I can't understand that. Sometimes you think like what's no coma. Hit the spot that never every time. Everytime time if given the option like if they were side by side, I'm going to the ice cream store every time because you can't put a snow cone on top of this sugar cookie with cinnamon toast crunch. What I'm saying you're right about that good ice cream, and then a karma, glazed and all that stuff, and they actually pick. If they were Saab is they would they go with snow cone ice cream. My wife's never been an ice cream that much of an ice cream fan. And you know, how she is about hard candy those fruity flavors like she's eating jolly, ranchers, right gidell's. And in candy necklaces, nerds all the time. It makes sense that she would like fruity smoke home. But my daughter, oh next thing, you know, she's gonna tell me she's giving Star Wars and other chains. Really didn't give it a good enough. Look, see. What is this world coming to my God? We're bringing it back as and TJ's I tunes. Faceoff happens next. This is the TJ show. Is the TJ show? We'll bring it back.

That's where it all began for me is just learning that music and singing along like all year i think could actually this nice man michael jackson you know being the influence on you and everything because we wanted a great for some people degray. So it's about you know having michael beyond like a influence if the one who's washed this interview had never heard him music before. Can you sort of breakdown your musical style and how you use that to make your music standout from from other arts. So michael is deputy as i said an influence by steve. Been probably the biggest inspiration in my life in terms of musicality because he's not defined by one genre stevie has ventured into all sorts of music is gone brigade elements. He's got jazz. He's got the soul gospel. He's just taken the best of all these worlds in in merge them together. So if i was explaining my style to somebody i would say i pretty much have a very afro will. African route were african grounding in in my style. But it's influenced by so many different genres you know so it's our be afro salt. That's my base. And then i grow from there and just collaborate you can hear those soulful elements in those elements in what i do. Not us as a great explanation and If it's that. Because when i got introduced to your music i started letting some of my friends check it out and it was all positive it was like this is good. You know. there's a satellite but yet it was it was and when we should have been between hosts it was all positive so we are talking to girona era right so he's got a saw meanest audit. A secret of this out right now is take it. You can find out on all the streaming platform spotify apple deesor wherever you get your music and you can find him on instagram at the great arab. You have something for jerome. A rat i do. I do as happy that you're here. This today I am so like you said that about the fusion of your rhythm and beats because sixteen and myself were talking. We're like wait a late. Has like a lotta like caribbean. Vise with like arm e five. So it's a me in using arms you can tell you that Don't mess with him but he also love you so that site the perfect combination of song. So i know this that on your your new album. Silence going through youtube listening to the light of your work in. Can you talk to me a little. Bit about the artwork. We're gonna maybe it's okay like we'll post it later but we'll put up. Some visuals of some of the artwork is your music but it's beautiful innocent century and different settle kate. You know. some people don't really put a lot of thought into their cover work. Can you tell us. Inspiration behind doors So pretty much. When i started doing this music thing i i had no direction. I was just like an artist wanting to create music and the same thing. You're saying what makes you different. And i'm like it's the overall package you know. What's what's the story. And i needed the story the best way i know how so i partner with a guy called Louis from zambia. He's a graphic design and we started a breakdown concepts and animation wise. This is what i'm thinking because there's so many stories. I wanna tell and i feel like for us to actually pay for a full on shoot to do the stories that i wanna tell like to do all the outlook that you seem to make that life and make that real would cost me. A fortune saw like yo animation like actually. It works what we're trying to do with the brand. It helps people understand mobile. The song is meant to be about and it just was a match made in heaven for me. You know just being able to speak to him and be like yo bro. Thinking about this something about that and then he'd be like all a sketch this. What do you think might yeah. Fill it in with these colors. Okay cool so we just go back and forth and pretty much. That's the work you see. I love it. I can't wait for it so put some of it of its a makes you kind connect or with the song or a lease i would say for me. It was more of the emotion of the song like maybe emotion connected to the artwork. because unavo- you sixteen. Are you know they're getting away from it. But i know here in a state. Sometimes they'll make a whole video or art but it has nothing to do with the song like really hard to like emotionally connected. Which is what we wanna do. When we're listening to an artist Before i toss it by sixteen one other question For some of the songs that you make How do you come up with the concepts are are you writing by yourself or do you have a team that writes with you for your vision is your process. It's funny there's different phases. So the first phase of everything that you experiencing thus far has been a lot of the pen as myself to be honest with you. I'd say ninety eight percent of the work that you're hearing from the catalog bit exists in terms of lyrical. Content is myself and it's not a small catch. They must be about one hundred and something two hundred songs that have penned already That are out to released. And then forget the other like three hundred something plus that are out there but not really released well so now the stage that i'm in is on trying to work on a number one record for hit radio Pop radio let's say so. I've got a few different rights is collaborating within water. Put this material together to make. Sure that it fits. The singer songwriter scope It doesn't mean inventions like venturing away. From what i enjoy making is just a different element that i get to finally devil it because at the end of the day is audience. We actually make music in order for us to survive. So why am i making music. If i'm not trying to be a multi platinum selling artists right. i don't wanna go platinum. Then where my where. My line to buy meagerly. I don't really care whatever is like. Who am i lines so pretty much the next phase that we working on I i come up with all the concepts myself. I stopped him off. And then i'll bring in Different writers with different produces to help me develop those concepts. All the concepts of from life in the best writers in the world just lived really amazing lives in terms of experience. It sounds personal. Sound really happy that you said you wrote them. Because i was listening to this real personal but like in a good way like you seem very connected to the Singing and we should be able to vote on. One of these songs goes on radio like i think was my one of my favorite ones. I think was I think bamboo was one of my favorite ones. That got cool. I really like this on the flood. Be funny that's like one of the mix tape kind of demos. A lot of people are hearing demos in my head. You know. I just signed a new management deal In love with london management company called gawky music. And the guy that signed me was like your your stuff is done and like that's just the first part that's like the mix tape segment and these like what you mean. We know that sounds like what upbringing next. That's that's the stuff is okay cool but this stuff is is goodness like yeah. That's that's the problem. It's not great lead. Read a move. Let's i mean as an artist in your creative. You may think it's not like where you need to be. Sometimes other people are gonna think. That's freaking the maze. That's where it is which is like man like you talked about the dental statement. How many tracks to listen to our maiden studios that you look at them. You're like oh okay that that came from that because they understand the concept is divide. It's nothing to do with the science behind it. It's about does he does the feeling. Come through the feeling comfortable detract stunt. Does you see yourself in the song and you can like you know what i could really be in the club vitamin to this. I could meet a person in via with them in light. Leave with a whole new friend. You know stuff like that so very sixteen. I guess i'll share with you guys. Which is which is right now. That's that's a. That's a good thing. So i want to jump into the side of it where you know. It's obstacles that you're facing. We're trying to promote your music. I mean it's a matter artists. That are out here. So i'm trying to find out what's something that you thought. That was gonna be hard in promoting the but ended up being easier than you promotion of the music. I guess in doing so much content. I was fearful that i wouldn't be able to get all the tracks out there and get people to the music you know like i thought like okay. They might vibe a one song. But there's no waiting to check out the rest of this stuff and that was kind of like a misconception. Because what happens with people is if they hear something that really resonates with them then they wanna look for more. So that's kind of. I guess the the thing that got me like oh so it actually does work mike. You put out content as much content as you want and eventually it will get to the ears that he needs to get to go down the rabbit hole myself. I get what we assume. Because i understand you saying that we're gonna take because there's so much out there and try and i mean i guess you could say you presented to people you hope for the best. You know the work that you put in and you hope that the work that you put in comes out in that people enjoy that so that's a good way of looking at it so in terms of taking that and talking about then support is. Where does your support come from that aspect. I'm not talking about fancy people will listen to the music but a team like your family friends. Who was like the person who wins. Wrongs haven't won them days. Where you're not really feeling yourself. You've kicked by. Hey man you got to remember who you are. Let's go what are you doing. Let's go something that resonates took me twenty four years to get my father to say he was proud of me and he understood division that i had for myself and from there onwards whenever i've kind of got to the point where i'm like i'm done. He's like yo you started something. Finish it bro. And i'm like what like for him to say that it always resonates with me. I mean i've got a few other friends here. And there like a convention pool. Crews from zambia whose is an engineer producer as done some amazing stuff. He's made some of neil's vocals with diamond platinum. Like he's done some amazing stuff and he will hit me up randomly. And just be like bro. Remember you you're the guy and i'm not giving you the guy. The guy kourtney hails from london based in manchester england is one of the biggest authors out there and he also hits me up occasionally we are just get a voice abe rough. What's happening you know today even to make it happen because you always have made it happened so got like one two. Maybe people that have always had my back and said things when i needed to year. The most I don't really share much with people. it's in the music so you could tell like when i'm down like you can hear it in. The music is no way this tracks like broken inside in You know even things like so exchange with people that would listen to the songs all. That's quite dark but it's like. Yeah dr points in my life just so i use the music as much as i can as a diary to reflect my life and i don't i don't shy away from it. I don't think that while it's i understand. Everything's a chapter in. Also even when i'm feeling down on like what can i draw from this in order for me to still move forward towards my goals rather than looking at as in this is it. I'm done. it's like well. I've been there before and i know that there's something else coming. So there's just roll with the punches. I remind myself that dedi said appreciate your explanations in going into detail you know given the you know good answers here man. We definitely appreciate that so again. It's talking to the great jerome arab right so check out. His music is and ness song. That i've been telling you about taking on austrian platform spotify. Dvd's are apple. Wherever you get your music amazon. He's there you can find them and also check him out on instagram at the great arab. It's diva you got something else. But giral i do. Do you recall the moment or maybe a particular a couple of moments where you were like. Maybe it was a fan or someone like was soubra height. They just like oh my guy while like okay my music's really really making a difference or something they made you bless rely on my god i got fans now like do you remember that moment when you're despite us nap i'll see ya. Yeah i get what you say i see. No i have not gonna like. I've had moments like that in my career where i was under shoko big brother africa and it amplified everything that was doing when i got out the show man like the whole continent is talking about about you as an artist. You know as a person like creative And i didn't enjoy that. The first time i remember somebody actually saying something about my music was poor cruised. The same guy talking about that's makes like year. He was like grow. You have this something about your voice and if you can invest in your vocal and in in your songwriting like if you can believe in it as much as the rest of the world like will will eventually get to that. He's like because what i see. Not many people can do. And you've got that. That was a life changing experience for me coming from pull cruise because somebody who actually works with stuff like works with big autism and for them to actually say something like that. You know it's like wow. I mean occasionally on on on instagram. I'll get the your. I really like this song will. You're really help through this. And that means a lot to me as well but that moment i remember getting somebody in the industry to say that you have something is is like a life changer. You know it's it's it's what should probably said to justin beep. I remember that back in midday. I'd remember that you think about those lower that turned into is what it's what question probably is what quincy said to michael. You see what i'm saying is when you you cut it up like that. It's like it doesn't matter how many people could say like yet you've changed my life. It's hard for you to believe it. I would like to you. It's like it's like yeah year year especially when you're not in a good space as an artist but when you have somebody that actually genuinely could contribute directly to to you moving four dozen artists saying that they believe in you alleged showing that they believe in you by actually championing. What you're like what you're doing like people like like a radio. Dj plan your music on the radio and hyping you before does so much more than a thousand fans going. Hey you're the man because that one person can actually change your life yesterday can. And that's that's like when you talk about those moments of had both. And as i say like the one that still resonates with me is when somebody in the industry something genuinely nice about what you're doing Do you guys know do bunch by any chance. Have you heard of him. He was signed to good music. Basically african one of the first african artist to be signed to good music I really with the label. Good music okay. But i'm not sure about that particular. Artists debunk bunches. Like the old school. He's like before all of these nigerian cats before whisk year and he also said on like you've got something he says. Just take your time. It'll come these guys like how much time we put this Taking time it will come. So what you want to hear but for them to say you got something that that means a lot. Well i think when they say. Take your time. it's i think that's really powerful. Because i will say from experience here. Everything is so rushed so rush so rush. You know in a lot of times. It's a time process in some of the greatest artists. I mean they'll put out of album. You won't hear anything for five or six years ago. Then they come back out. It's amazing and they have. The artists can drop the album every two years and then like you get in the interview in their completely honest in their say you know. I didn't love this you know. I felt a lot of pressure to put this out in this day. I wasn't connected to this album. So i just think you're speaking from experience you know on your gift in I think that's amazing Had another question based on us a win win someone who's that powerful or important says investing yourself or investing your voice for people who aren't in the industry like what does that mean. Does that mean you get a mentor. It doesn't mean you take vocal lessons as it mean. What does that mean. what does that process. Look like for you to invest in your voice so the the way the business works and this is something i think. People missing the industry in on other people wanna be artist. But you could break down from even you look like jay z kind of element. Where you don't get record you start a record label. Look at all the doors. It opens up when somebody says invest in yourself. What they saying to you to do is to go back. And just keep doing what you're doing and just be consistent and trust me. You will stop icing. Every day i vocal like warm up every day without fail with. I'm holding my like three month. Year old while i'm singing. I'm singing every day to make sure that my voice is being trained. I'm working on basically a for jock nearly every day at least five times a week and in terms of the business element are managing myself. Speaking to the t. Date is like this is what we're doing this and what we try to. I would not understand the whole print out understand production if identity like them on time spent in this. I wouldn't understand my own vocal and my vocal needs in order for it to actually execute like a good track. I wouldn't understand image. I wouldn't be able to do my own clothing brand. I wouldn't be able to. Yeah like i wouldn't into so many of these different things or even attempting if or identity just like while. I wanted on record deal. That's what i'm aiming for. Taking time is just like find out way you position yourself in the industry. Find the folks that you have to like pass like pass through because who knows those folks may doorways to you actually becoming a business or a brand. That is what like eternity. You know you may be here for the next five years if you get a record deal now but if you learn how to run a record label you may basically end up twenty thirty years like run of career. It's just the way it works so when someone like that says take your time i mean this is they just say to you like take your time to understand what it takes to to become the people you wanna become you know of had plenty label exact say to me. Don't sign a deal because none of the big artists that you love are on a record label zoom. What do you mean. What do you mean like all these guys we love. What do you mean like well. None of scientists record label yet in my work with the record label but the deal with the record label. They cut big cut deals. They contracts none of them actually are signed any other labels while they dependent you own masters you only deal is like you will not get paid for the rest of your life man and we talk about these things but people still don't understand what it means to talk to half the artists about registering trek with bmi. What's that well the by the time they figure it out it too late now they have a whole legal situation going on. It is definitely expensive at the plea so so take your time. That's like any advice that i give to anybody. Any industries is like take your time find your position like explore it you know trial being radio host. That might not work with you but then you learn how to press the buttons and oh it off who knows maybe designing the software that other radio stations will use. Because you you found the problem like maybe that was it. You did it that your software that it that was you you know it. Oh businesses multi-million. Aradio more you ain't the host you just providing what the use and making major money for it. Yes do you man. Long as long as shit clear and that's that's right Is so we got a couple more here for now. We got a little question getting that we do with our guest to come on the show here so in talking about your career i guess in total. So what are your. What are your plans for your career. We talked about you singing and everything but at some point you're doing that but do you want to get into other things you wanna manage. Artists wanna try your hand at acting. Maybe you wanna do a podcast. Where do you see all this ended up for. Finding you say that it's like where do you see like working on the podcast during a few books right in a few scripts like i you like. I started in theater. You know theater from the age of six on stage acting And that went onto at the age of eleven scripting and actually putting stuff and then still singing and stuff opening from Name like doing. The michael jackson covers until i could actually come up with my own content. So when you ask me what do i see. I believe that i'm a creative. That's what i do. Is i help. Put things together And i utilize the talents. I have so whether it's acting or directing we'll producing i just i dive into any form of creativity. America's always been a dream from when i was a kid. Just because have so heavily influenced by what you guys have there. You know it's like. I'm a huge fan. I think it's clear like you could see of studied a lot of the ways of of the the black american kind of coach. It's like wow. I actually debts. That's raised me so i would love to come out there and add that african element to what is going on and just be part of that segment year like i would love to put together. You know certain movies. I like to of a manson moose. Mussa movie that talks about you know. Some of the greatest african descent travel before thank europe was even the europeans thinking about like. I want to be part of a whole different scope of creativity that helps reshape the way we as black people might perceive ourselves. We always think that we start at the bottom. But i want to. I want to show people that we actually have been at the top and have been a major contributor to humanity from the beginning of time. You know it's kind of like my core by mccoy is there. So i'll do everything in my power to create as much as i can to not just contribute but also move mankind full so yeah we welcome you to atlanta. Everything is music arts emmy.
