What it does is breaches into a brain chemically and no, cat your happiest memory chemically and then blocks on that emotion and releases it chemically, and then it keeps your happy, happy. Hello, hello, hello, and thank you for tuning into the selling out show where we screw up life at our leisure for your listening pleasure. I am one of your host David Schultz, and over here by my side is my good buddy and partner in crime, Nate Korzinski. Nate, how are you? Ah, man, I'm hot and sticky. It's hot as we balls up here in New England. Dave, Oh, I don't want to hear any of that. No, no, listen to this. I know, I'm sure you're in Texas. I'm sure it's awful, but just quickly, man, as we're recording this, it's two weeks into July and the whole month so far has been rain with it's barely any sun poking through this summer. It's been miserable. But finally we get some heat and it's like ninety five hundred degrees up here. So so it's wet, sticky and that's how I'm doing. How you doing it? That's how I like it. I like it wet and sticky. Yeah, me, I'm I've finished my vacationing. Now I'm refreshed, that's right, rejuvenated and lost more faith in humanity. Is If I didn't have enough already over the last whatever eighteen months, just completely said fuck it, fuck out too legged meat bags, pieces of crap. No, I mean, I went down to the ocean and I don't know, like is one of those things where, even though you've been vaccinated, I still wear masks so people don't think I'm like some kind of fucking Republican or something, and then they just see people running around all Willy Nilly, and I read stuff about variance and it is. It's just one of those things where I'd just I'm like people, man, I think we're a little too eager beaver to just totally ditch any kind of precautions whatsoever. Yeah, but other than that, my vacation was a success, because any sign of a good vacation is when you come home broke in, a little bit beaten up. That was me, baby, that was me. Sounds like heaven. Oh yeah, my own little slice to have, and there was a lot of Hill billies in Galveston, Texas to so what the hotel I was staying at, there were some people in another room who had an SUV and I see that the back of it and it's like America, love it or leave it, and eagles and all kinds of like this. Even the fuzzy dice are the the southern flag? Oh boy. Yeah, and I'm like what is going on with these people? Everything this is rebel and whatever, confederate us and that. Yeah, confederate motherfuckers. And I'm like God boy, here I am and I don't know, redneck heaven. You know this is going to suck. But the funny thing was I said to my wife, I'm like, you know, all this stuff, Regalia on the automobile and it's a fucking Hondai. Yeah, yeah, so you know, America first. Yeah, and he's fucking driving Japanese. So I call it the hill billy Hondai. So yeah, but they should have seen the people driving this fucking thing. They were they were like straight out of like whatever in your mind's eye would see for people who'd own a vehicle like this. They were that. Yeah, man, no, I picture it seems like I hate to say it, because our nation. You know, we should be proud of our nation. I you know, we should. Symbols and whatever. They mean a little too much to some people. But it's gotten to the point where if I see a bunch of American flags, are like overtly not so much American flags, but definitely the confederate flags, like I automatically am like man, like I don't have to interact with these people and like, I don't know, I guess that's that's not true of American flags in general. I shouldn't say that, but it just seems like like, for example, if you see a car driving or a pickup truck rather with a giant American flag like flying off it, like just, you know, that dudes a douchebag. I'm sorry, you know, like. Well, I take it one further. N If there's even a little American stick around there, I think douchebag. All right, so I'm not aware. In America we get it. It's like wearing the fucking the band's Tshirt to their show. We get it. You like rush. You're at a rush show. You don't need to wear the fucking rush tshirt. We understand. You like rush. You were here.
That's here. Right Point, man. Well, I never thought of that, you know, correlation the band t shirt at the show. That's exactly what it is. You're too much of a fan, like. Yeah, a friend of mine pointed out a while ago, like before Biden became president. He was like watch when Biden gets elected, watch me never wear a biden hat or shirts like like it's not normal to be that supportive where. You know, that's where it turns into the actual cult thing. They talked about anaticism. Right, it's just the last. He's over zealous, you know, but to make me man dude speaking of that stuff, like, I don't you know, I hate getting sucked down that whole discussion of q and on and right versus lived. It does get it gets old to me, just I don't know. But I will say that cult like attitude it's going to be really hard to break, man, because it's like we're dealing with people who they're thinking they're seeing secret movements in like hand gestures or like the way trump says a sentence. They pick it apart and say, Oh, it's a code, like the first letters of this in this are this and they equal q and like things like that. You know, that that's what the whole queue and on movement is based on, and I was thinking, like it's going to be really hard to reason people out of that, because these are also the same people that are evangelical Christians usually, and these people look at all the random shit that happens in their life and they see signs of God in it. They see like miracle. Yeah, God's communicating with me, he wants me to do this because a bird flew by or some shit, you know, like it's it's going to be really hard because that Shit's so ingrained in people. It's gonna be hard to talk them out of that. As my point. So we got our work cut out for us. Yeah, good luck with all that. Oh my God, it's bad enough. I was thinking, I just started this whole conversation about vacationing with probably a bunch of q and on fucking Weirdos right now. You like, how do we get rid of them? The answer is, we don't. We're just fucked. Yeah, you're a lead. They gotally fucked. Yeah, you're down south, you're in Abbot territory, you're in Ted Cruz Central, down there, man, I don't I don't envy you that. But Yeah, gag me, Mao Spoon, I don't know, I'm surprised. You were talking about you were talking about running into that, that person with the Hunda. I like it was like weird and I thought you living down there. That's basically you were the odd man out and the rest of them were all that like at that. No, no, it's just the the proximity everything. The guy was in like the room next to mine. Right. I'm like, I really don't want to fucking bump into this guy when I have to go to the ice machine. Yeah, you know. Yeah, or his wife, who is completely unabb unavoidable, because she could have been in fucking free Willie three the fucking like dude. She was like that's what I mean. They hadn't seen a dentist and forever. Yeah, and they've never passed on the the chance to have a freaking whole or a Ding Dong. It's like she was so big that everyone in the hotel was near her. Like yes, exactly, and I have no issue with with people being pleasantly plush. Sure, you know, I am myself and I happen to like the ladies to have a little extra meat on the bone. Right, and I have fat friends, so I can say this stuff. Yeah, yeah, that too. Yeah, absolutely, but I mean she she was fucking. I think she's just fucking pure sugar coursing through her veins, you know, Maple Syrup. So, nate, you know, we talked about the the queue and on the que people, you know, just to kind of go back to that real quick if you haven't seen the documentary on HBO about that. Yeah, it's a free storm. Is really good. It's really good and it just justifies the fact that everybody who likes it is crazy. But I'm not immune to being susceptible to things that I see online and influenced by a various things, and recently now, you know, I'm a big fan of kids in the hall. You are many people out there. Are they have a revival coming on Amazon prime, hopefully sooner than later. Yes, but I happen to follow day folly on twitter. Grow if you don't follow him, you're probably not aware of the fact that he is an advocate for, how should I put this, like ufo awareness? Okay, boy, okay. He's a believer. He is a believer that there's alien life forms and they have visited the earth and that the government's of the world have covered up their existence for years and years. And I'm not really a big conspiracy theorist. I don't really sit lying awake at night thinking about aliens. I just don't. It's like one of those things that scientifically cannot really be denied, that they probably exist. Right, right, statistically, it seems impossible that they don't. You know, like that there's not something out there. Right, exactly, there hast, I mean, everybody says, well, well, the earth or conditions were just right.
What was to say? I mean the cosmos is fairly big, the galaxy is massive. Who Know? Almost infinite? Sure, infinite? Yes, exactly. So to think there are no other alien life forms out there is just ridiculous. So I'm on the twitter. I look at some of the stuff he posts and, to be honest with you, if fucking terrifies me, scares the Living Shitu of me. What because talking about like like links to things or just yes, or what? No, no, no, I'm sorry. Yes, thank you for a force me to clarify. There are links to articles, okay, scientific journals even, about the validity behind aliens and alien spacecrafts ufos. That have been cited specifically by the United States government and recorded and are just completely unexplainable. And the whole, I mean scenarios of how these things are like planes without wings, and this is should mean. Even had President Obama discussing it. So I'm reading all this stuff. It's not like even from some blog, right, that's written by us. This was all released recently. They like yes, like the FBI acknowledged that. They didn't acknowledge like, Oh, there are aliens, but they said, yes, there's some shit that we've seen that we can't explain. Basically, that's, you know, and and they showed video footage of like pilots stuff they couldn't you know. So I'm assuming that's what you're talking about. Or, yes, this whole information dump sure a giant, you know, and no one gave a fuck. No one cares. Yeah, whatever, ufos, I don't don't mean a Goddamn thing. But then even me, like I said, I used to scroll by it or whatever, and then this one day I clicked on it and now I'm fucking terrified because I'm thinking about all the bad scenarios that could happen here and I wish I had lived my life more successfully to the point where I have like a cabin in the woods or a bunker. That's excessl to the Yes, yes, success to you. Did this is subsis a UNIBOMBER? No, well, no, I guess I don't want to a little shanty like that. I don't want to be fucking completely crazy sending people mail that could explode. But you know what I mean. where I want, like a place where I can run and hide. Yeah, should that's all I want. And you know, success, like yeah, Oh, I want a man. Should know you don't want that, because the UFO, if they are, you know, with bad intentions, can just roll up on your pad and say Fuck you, Kim Kardashian and boil your shit up. That's so I need to go, you know, dig a hole somewhere, something like it to be a lavish all right, right, yeah, just like a hole in the ground, like like in the walking dead or something, you know, like. Well, not like and no, no, I want I want to go in that hole and have it be like LIBERACCI's house. Okay, day. So, yeah, I got I've something to tell you. There is there was a story that vice did a few years ago. It was a story about basically just a narrow down there was a guy who manufactured LSD who had an underground bunker. It was like some old missile silo, like it was a series of tunnels, but it was this huge thing and he had it set up like a tripping palace, like they were hot tubs, mirrors, there was all this shit. It's exactly what you're talking about. Like you should see if it's for sale, because this dude went to prison ultimately and somebody else seemed to have the property. But I'm sure you could talk to someone pull some strings. But maybe the point of what you're saying is that you you haven't lived your life to the point where you could afford that anyway. Right, yes, exactly. So it's like where you're saying it's with Mexico and Al Choppo's house. You can buy a raffle ticket there, you and maybe win it. But I'm even at the point now where I think I'm going to crowd fund this, I'm going to get other people like me. Okay, we're now terrified of the idea that aliens will in fact be hostile, and then I will take their money. Okay, I will build a giant, either underground complex or just remote, you know, compound somewhere, sure, where select few can come live with me when all this shit goes down and Independence Day becomes a fucking reality. Right, you just need some guns to defend it, you know, you got us well, train some guards. Yeah, that's that's says. A sticky situation too, because you know me, I'm anti gun. I'm not into that kind of stuff. So I don't that that honestly, hasn't really crossed my mind yet. It's more just like a place to go run and hide and find, you know, just, yes, safe when you say it. I got to I got to think of something. Maybe you've seen. You've seen movies. You've seen both the walking dead or Georgian narrows. The Zombie Apocalypse, for example, is always a backdrop to human drama. It's always like other people that are the real danger in those movies. It's like post apocalyptic, and the ones you have to worry about aren't even the zombies. There the other humans that are desperate and trying to live. That's true. And in an alien apocalypse or or whatever invasion I said, I suppose it wouldn't be...
...any different day so yeah, play. See, I was just thinking, like to get around the guns, I was going to go, well, aliens, if they invaded, their technology as far superior to ours anyway. So what good would guns really do? But then you just brought the fact that you know cousin sal is going to one in the compound. So I get a fucking blow his head off to keep it away from my Harem that I will hand pick and select to repopulate the earth. That's when everything's over, in the dust settles. So this isn't scare you at all. This this isn't, like, like me bring it up now, affect you in any any way. If you think about it. I mean you could go through your life scared of countless situations, potential situations, but I don't know, I I feel like in my life just to get a little more serious, like ever since I got off hard drugs. I feel like a lot lighter in my said, I worry about things a lot less. I just I feel like I've been through a lot of garbage, whether living on the streets or in jail, whatever it was like where. I know that's a totally science fiction sort of scenario with thinking, but but really like you know, if I end up without a home or we end up without electricity or whatever, like I you'll be okay. Yeah, I don't know if I'd be okay. I don't want to go that far. I probably dead within a week and I probably kill myself before a long but but I just mean I don't worry about those things as much from ahead of time. You know what could be. I live more okay, now you know what I'm saying in brew. Yeah, Dard, totally, you're so down. Would becoming a domesticated pet for an alien? Why not? Yeah, I know, and it's something that we'll probably never see and it's like this weird paranoia that just came over me suddenly, but it's something I think about now I'm like, well, just added to the list and, like you said, you just don't focus on I try not to either. I mean everybody, and that's the whole point of the rat race, right. We all exist. We wake up, we go to work, we pay our bills, we do whatever, and this is all a major distraction from the entire point of life, which is to ask questions and wonder and theorize and ponder on. You know, the purpose of what we're doing here. This is the man holding us down. So, yeah, what's it? What difference would it make if was an alien? I'm already getting fucked by my fellow species. Yeah, you know. So keep your head down, find a routine. If they as land, you just find another routine and live with that. You know. It's yeah, yeah, it's all. It is a new routine. Maybe they'd be allergic to salt water, like an alien nation, and I can just have a house boat, right, or just water, like in signs? Hmm, am night Shamlan, how stupid when aliens have to be to invade of a planet? Yeah, that's like that much water. Seventy percent water. Human beings are what is our bodies? Percentage of water? Probably seventy percent two as it seems like the Speeni a number. Yeah, yeah, so it. But water will fuck us up. So that's what we're doing. We're coming after you water. People want a world. Yeah, does nothing that opens? No, no, definitely not. But Hey, if anybody out there is interested in joining me out in the middle of nowhere, or potentially underground, to hide and make love and to, you know, Weird Shit, you can always contact us. The selling out show, selling out show, at gmailcom on your socials like twitter and Instagram, at selling out show, or on facebook at selling out show one, because we are the fucking best. Don't you forget it. Come get my Gosh bunkery with us. Come get me a punkery. Yeah, fun, good. You know, I mentioned the previous episode how I started making soap. Write my instagram form. My soap is blowing up, baby nice, Dude. It's getting up there, which I think is funny because no one really, to be perfectly honest, gives two fucks about a podcasts instagram. And I get it. You know whatever. Everybody's got a fucking podcast. But still, like, we talked about stuff that affects humans, right, I mean people. We're dealing with the same problems. Are The potential listening public? Well, yeah, with list would deal with you know. Yeah, and they're like yeah, whatever, okay, you're a pocket. But then I just start showing off pictures of soap at Schultz, soap, Shultz, I spell the name because I want more of you and follow me. People like it. They're like, I can wash my nuts with that, right, can't do that with a podcast. No, no, you can't wash your nuts with the podcast. This is sad but true. You know earlier I just mentioned you could become a great domesticated pet for an alien.
That's like Porno for Pyros, saying about way back in one thousand nine hundred and ninety three. If they make great members, we'd make great pets. But you are a pet lover. We have discussed this many times for a great links. Yet, that being said, you haven't encountered a new problem with some of your furry friends. MMM. So some would call it a problem, some would call it a solution. Dave, okay, I have these two rabbits. Look, I've got a million pets, I've mentioned before. We have horses, right, dog, cats, all kinds of shit, and we have these two bunnies that honestly sit there in cages and, like you know, they don't they don't interact because they're in separate cages. But recently I've been like, let's let these guys hang out. Their cages seem kind of like boring, and we have this pen and that we can put on the grass. It's just like a fence that you can connect to itself in a ring. So they're they're both in there, but I would put a partition wall of also of like a fencing almost like a chicken wire, ish fancy, a little thicker than that. But but between them, because they've never lived together. They been separate cages. So I figured let's put them you know, put a little separation in between them so they okay, sive each other, but yeah, it, you know, before they just dive into life together. But anyway, that little partition in the middle is a little lower than the surrounding ring like that, it's a shorter wall between them, if you will. And you know I mean they've been out there a couple days. You know, I'll put them back in their cage at night so foxes don't get them or whatever, but I'll I put them out there during the day and they've been out a few times and it's never been a problem. But today I go inside after putting them out and I look back a few minutes later and one of the rabbits has somehow gotten over that little partition and is banging away at the other brother like like like a rabbit having sex, you know, like you did. Imagine it's fucking bunnies. That's what they do. But I was just like you know, I immediately run out because a like my initial instant is these dudes are actually brothers. So this is kind of fucked up in all kinds of levels. You know, I've no problems gay bunnies. They're both males, but you know, brothers is, you know, as a taboo. I'm not willing to see to just like turn the other way right. You know, I had some questions. So I ran over and I like grab one of them off the other one and put him back on his side. I'm like, Oh, maybe, you know, I reinforce the wall a little bit so it wouldn't tip over as easily when he put weight on it, and I go inside. I make sure they're fine. For a while, nothing's happening. I go inside, the same thing happens. So, you know, Long Story Short, I could not keep these bunnies from fucking and you know, love will find a way, as they say. Yes, and apparently he apparently there's because so, you know, I figured like, if one of them is always going to jump into the other one side anyway, and they're both on that side, which is half the size of the thing, I might as well just take the fucking wall out. So they're going to be together anyway. Now they have more room, just like you know, so for their and docential love fest. You just gave him more room to Brop. Well, I wanted to make sure I was safe first. I'm like, let me well, not that I was safe, that the bunnies would say so I felt fairly secure, you know, in this whole scenario. But I look up, is it, you know, will bunnies kill each other? will too, male rabbits murder each other if you leave them alone. And it was saying, you know, watch them, put them together and they will fuck, they will bang and like established dominance and it's really disturbing watch, but it's actually a positive thing because it's just the thing they have to do. and Um, you know, he's looking at me. know it's disturbing, but don't believe me. In the eyes, something like Gus do, the dudes in Albino is red eyes and he's daring right at me while he's fucking his brother. It's just really creepy. Gone. But I'll look it up and it's like, you know, they're supposed to do that, more or less. They as long as they're not like clawing at each other and, you know, bloodying each other up, and they you know, they will stop eventually. And and Dude, you know what the article said. It said a lot of times they'll reverse the mount each other, which basically means fucking each other in the face like to the climb on. And they said, you know, even that's fairly normal. It's just a dominant behavior, but it could. The only danger is if the rabbit like choose off the genitals of the other one. And I'm like, wow, Jesus, that you know, and which did not happen. You know, spoiler alert this. This all ended pretty blood free, just, you know, two bunnies laying around smoking butts, Fuckin posted bliss. Good to...
...know, when you do get enslaved by alien race, that you can just go face fuck somebody and be like hey, he's cool, I'm just establishing my dominance. It's right, turn the other way, look away. Yeah, but, as you said in the beginning, it's an issue I had not really dealt with before. Like I mentioned on another episode how I had hamsters as a kid and one of them, like, we left them alone and they made it as a and I be worried the other one. Yes, yeah, one of US errated shoot the head off the other one and then choked on the bone, so they both died like. That's what was in my mind about this, and articles are like no, buddies, buddies is gonna fuck you know I'm saying. That's what the article said, the abridged version. So bunny is Bliz us. You should put this into written form and kind of make softcore bunny porn. MMM, for all the other weird pet lovers like yourself out there, why would you even own animals? I don't get it, like I've said this so many times, because I don't. I can't get into the whole into your mind to understand the love of animals. But like when animals do fucking crazy shit like this, yeah, it's enough to make you go, well, that's it. I'm done now. incestuous homosexual rabbits, I think. You know, I think it is. That's enough. I think I'm good. Males, you know, stick to Goldfish. I don't know a man. Yeah, but you know what the I'm into deep Dave. It's like I already have yeah, but what am I going to do? It's like just smash their heads because they're fucking like a give them away. Let for like, let him go, not crewel him go. Let him go free in the woods and they can go fucking jump and face, fucking Hump Whatever the hell they want, and it's not your responsibility anymore. Yeah, and that's the way, not on my watch. Yeah, that's the way nature intended. I mean, you know, whatever, just let him go. You know, they say if you love something and you said it free, if it comes back to you, is meant to be. So there you go, you know, because what's the benefit? What's the you have these things. I get to see this star crossed lovers. It's like a it's a Romeo in Romeo story, but they're MONTAGUES. They both, you know, brothers. I can this is the point of the program where I like to thank our partners.

Now, what do you say we hop into some nate's notes? Dust up your LP. It time for nate. No, no, I was listening back to some of my previous comments on an earlier episode regarding mumble wrap and a lot of the current hip hop art us, and something occurred to me. Firstly, I noticed that I sounded crotchety and...
...old complaining about the music young people listen to. Sure I am old, the popular music being bought and listened to by young people isn't for me, just as Drummond Bass, techno or death metal in the s wasn't for my parents. Generation evolution is just a fact, and just as in biology we see gradual changes from generation to generation, evolution occurs in other ways to in thoughts and attitudes, in what becomes socially acceptable, as well as taste in art and entertainment. The world is always moving forward. US Old folks can shake our heads at what the youngsters are getting up to if we want, but let's just remember that our folks and their folks probably shook their heads and or fists at a lot of our trends and artistic contributions. I think a lot of my frustration with modern hip hop came from the fact that I had some cognitive dissonance over a rapper like Takashi, six nine or Cardib being technically in the same category as most deaf or Asop rock. It just seemed silly to even compare their technical skills now, leave alone the fact that there are still a ton of modern, popular rappers with those technical skills, be it Kendrick Lamar or j Cole. That's not the point. I'm trying to say that skill isn't relegated to just how technically proficient and virtuosic one is at their chosen craft. It depends on the context the style of music you're even trying to make. There are a ton of Eddie van Halen or Dave Mustaine fans who would Pooh Pooh the more simplistic guitar work of Johnny Ramone or even Kurt Cobain. But you know what, Johnny Ramone and Kurt Cobain were really fucking good at writing catchy riffs and putting together simple but solid tunes. Guitar whnkery is just a different skill than the more punk rock style of the Ramons or Nirvana, for example, and there's an audience for both. The lyrics to knowledge of self by Black Star can't be compared to a song like wap by Cardi B. The intent is different, the style is different, the whole subgenre of rap is different, which leads me into my next point. Now Dave and I have both set a lot about how annoying subgenres can be. I listen to a lot of metal and the list of metal sub genres could take up the rest of this segment if I were to try to list them all. You have the basics, like thrash, death metal, black metal, power metal, the new wave of British heavy metal, Goth Metal, industrial metal and on and on. That would be overwhelming enough, but then there are bands that take elements of multiple subgenres and mix them. So you get blackened death metal, which is naturally death metal with black metal elements. You get the idea. It even gets more confusing. You get symphonic, blackened, technical brutal death metal, and yes, those are all real mix and matchable subgenres. I'm sure there are a ton of symphonic, blackened, technical, brutal death metal acts scattered across the interwebs right now. So what am I getting at? Well, as ridiculous as all that sounds, it does serve a purpose other than making nerdy metal heads argue over how to label their favorite band. These titles can actually be really helpful for both the artist trying to sell themselves to an audience who's never heard them before, as well as to that audience looking for a specific sound. It's just for ease of categorization, and the more specific you can narrow down the search for music, the more efficient the whole thing becomes. Just don't get discouraged by the dorks calling you a pose are because you called suffocation a death metal band instead of brutal death, mittal bond with technical elements or whatever. To bring it back to Hiphop, sometimes we forget that hip hop has subgenres to and just as I am not a fan of power metal, but I love me some technical death metal, there are ways to narrow down your search for hip hop. You may not be into trap music with its Stark, robotic beats or the simplistic lyric patterns, but you may really get into a backpack rapper like common...
...or Talib quality, with their deeper subject matter and Jazzy or production. There are lots of subgenres in Hiphop, as there are in jazz, and just like you can retrace the development of bebop or big band jazz throughout the years, you can see how gangster rap like Nwa gradually morphed into dre and snoops, G FUNK and ultimately to trap music from ti or Gucci Maine, all the while refining it sound and representing the culture from which it springs. Socially conscious rappers from the s like krs One and Chuck d ultimately birthed artists like Erica Badou and then Kendrick Lamar. Now I'm just talking popular artists here. The underground is and always has been, a fertile place for talent, and one can completely ignore the mainstream should they choose. There are countless artists working there, as there are in the underground of any style of music. So if I were to try to put a cap on this whole mess of an essay, in which I rambled about Dorky subgenres and mostly sounded like an out of touch old dude, I guess it would be this. Popular music is an ever evolving species. It changes over time with the tastes and sensibilities of the public. As we live and die, those tastes aren't always going to make sense to us as we age out of that targeted demograph. But there's still plenty out there for us, even if we can't stand what's in the charts. Shit, I don't think I ever cared about what was popular as a kid, so why would I pay attention now? Much of what's popular just is not meant for me. And finally, there's a skill set involved in writing a stupid, catchy pop song. It's just different than writing a really deep, thoughtful piece of art, and some artists can manage to do both at once. The world is old, and so am I. There have always been shallow, catchy pop acts. Why would it be any different? Now? I'm going to go listen to some Wood Tang and pretend it's still one thousand nine hundred and ninety six. Well, you know, Billy Joel had something to say about this with his song. It's still rock and roll to me, M and that was in reference to the whole punk movement, right, because we had to say, Oh, is angsty, it's young people, it's called punk. He's like, no, what Fucka is still rock and roll right. Everyone's talking about the new way is can movee. To me, I don't know. MMM, yeah, I don't know the lyrics the rightest, but like the points, is a broad is checked? Yes, thank you, thank you. But the and I'm going to use a word that I like to have come out of my face, which is going to make me seem intelligent, especially since earlier in the program I couldn't say the word confederate. I was like, well, what's a southern flag? Quickly fix that. But we knew of Malcolm Dave Amalgam, which for many years I called Amalgam. To show you how smart I really are and but how smart I really are. See, I mother fuck on me, you're falling apart. They yes, I need help, someone help me. I'm still worried about being anally probed, which, funny enough, I didn't bring up Ur in that whole alien segment one bit. So here I am. That was one big set up for an anal joke. Yeah, I didn't use it. So until you brought the bunnies and we didn't even use it then. So Jesus, man, were sucking this. But the reason why I bring up the word Amalgam is because, you know, you blend, you take different elements of everything, you put it together and you have music. It doesn't matter what style or type it is, and you'd mentioned that. We've talked about this before, because I don't like all these labels, but, as you just mentioned, it does make it easier for someone to find maybe what they're looking for and what they like. Sure, yeah, man, it's just the thing is that people get nerdy about it, like anything else. You go online, you find a bunch of people they just want to argue about something. So yeah, it's like, well, that's they're not a brutal death metal be in there a technical this w yeah, it's like there's a lot of that nonsense. And again that's young people, and here I am an old guy. Those, those discussions aren't for me. Like, I'll listen to what I want to listen to. But who let the young kids argue and listen to what they want to listen to. I've earned the right to sit back and just go. Let me pop in my old Walkman cascept where. Yeah, you know. Yeah, exactly. I like the fact you doing voices now. You're in you're in the voice business. Add it to my repertoire. I will add it to that repertoire, as a matter of fact. But you know, these kind of discussions happen. When we were young, it was just between five people in a basement. Yeah, they were you argue with people in the Philippines?...
Yeah, I will. That's the whole point of the Internet, right, talking is is to argue, like this movie sucks and movies great, this song sucks, you know whatever. You know. Everything is about dissenting opinions and negativity, and you have like the certain people out there who are like, yeah, you can to be positive all the time. Yeah, and they probably have way more followers and likes and people smashing those Ding Dong button cling clang, he's he's that like this person. But uh, you know, to kind of bring it back around to social media, I stay quiet on things I see very often. And, for those who don't know, my wife is Mexican, so I and I've spent a considerable amount of time in Mexico, so I'm fairly familiar with some of the the cultural aspects of their music. And I saw a debate raging where someone was comparing Latino or Latin x country how it's not toano and it's not no Tenne music and it's not this and that and like they've really got to put it in a pigeon hole what they producing. And I'm like, Whoa, Whoa, whoa. Like to me that was like too much, like sure, you want to argue over that and and whatever, but I mean, yeah, back to your piece. is applicable with everything, especially with the hip hop you mentioned. Yeah, I have never listened to a Cardi B song. I couldn't tell you one song she's saying. But if I said, oh, yeah, that's Hiphop, to a hiphop fan they probably be like, well, what the fuck? Man? Like you don't know anything about this, so you just don't generalize and call of this. And the same thing with the Latino music or country or whatever. If I try to like just, you know, put it in one package because it's easier for me to talk about that way or explain that way, I am alienating and, you know, excluding and infuriating a whole another base of folks. It's weird, I know, man, but, like you said, it's there's always something to argue about and the Internet is fertile ground for that sort of Shit. Man. It's is that where you're seeing this stuff? Like about the death metal? You brought that up like twice. Yeah, technical, that's on the the the book. Well, technical death metal is a style. It's more like just to narrow down there, there are like these these these subgenres do make sense. There is a reason they are different like that. Like a black metal song is way different than a technical death metal song. And and death metal you add technical to it, it's just basically death metal sounds like morbid angel in the S. it's very like muddy and like growly vocals and, you know, intricate drums and guitars and stuff, but it's kind of sounds like a monster playing music. You know, it's fucking dark shit. Technical death metal is when you get like like an Invey Mountstein style guitarist, like insane guitar playing, and and not just Solos, like the song structures, like the the the verses are more complex to play than like an Eddie van Hale and Solo, you know what I'm saying, like it's insane shit and that's why I love it. It's mind blowing to listen to. Its so virtuosic, but at the same time I'll listen to a black metal band, which is some of them can barely play guitar and it's just about atmosphere and a cool sort of riff and it's like the punk of metal, which I've I think I've done a segment about, but it's basically they're two things. It's both metal, but one of them, you know one, the guy that plays black metal could never probably play a technical death postficiency. Yeah, it's just yeah, proficiency, but but again it's two different styles, and that's what I mean. Like Cardi B from what I've heard I've got, granted I haven't explored her catalog so much, but as an ignorant, you know, few time listener, I would say that her lyrics aren't quite as deep as somebody that like most deaf or our Asop Rock, as I mentioned, or or at mef doom, like there's some she she has skills, she's able to rhythmically put stuff together and she has a story to tell. She has a very complex backstory. I don't, you know, don't, I don't know what the word is. dispossessor of that, like she's Miss Right. Dismiss that. Thank you. She's, you know, got plenty to talk about. She's had an interesting life, from what I understand. But and she puts it into art, which is a lot better than a lot of people do. Like that's what I always say about people that complain about modern hipop. It's like, at least people are making art. You know, they're doing stuff and they're they're putting forth the effort to create something in a studio. You know how fun that is, recording like on a for track and putting down vocals and you know, doing stuff like that's cool to do. So it's like people are creating and I think that's always a good thing, even if I don't always like the finished product. You know. Well, reply with that on the next time you see a tweet or out host were someone's like Hey, man, you get the fucking genre wrong. You look, don't mother fuck. This is all art well creating,...
...don't true. Remember? Come on, now, Simm a down now, come on, you know you guess that could be your old person stands than just grumble, grumble, grumble. Can't we all just get along up to the run? Okay, Oh man, we have certainly dated ourselves this time around. I was talking about the movie alien nation. I'm sorry, much, Robby King Chuck. Yeah, Holy Macaroni. Yeah, here we go. Someone fit us with some walkers with tennis balls on the bottom. We have earned it, I'm telling you. And then I don't know if it's a blessing or a curse that I've never heard a Cardi B song and recently I realize I've never watched to my recollection a fast and furious movie, because there's been all these memes about Vin diesel and the new movie that's been out, about some about like yeah, you don't need this if you got family. And I'm I don't understand that reference. I don't get it. Yeah, but I've never seen one of these movies. I got no need for it. I you're not missing anything, man. You know again, it's fair young people that like that have a raging heart on and want to drive fast cars. Well, it can't be for that young people, because the franchise has been around for like a decade. I my kid was watching the nightmare before Christmas of the day, and I commented to somebody, yeah, I'm not into it because, you know, I was too old for this when it came out. And then I stopped and I thought about it and like wait, the people who made this were older than me. Oh yeah, Tim Burton and Danny Elfman and the people involved, and for me to say it was like a generational thing is weird because it was made by a generation before mine. Right, so it's just a matter of taste. It was a matter of age. But sure, yeah, that's another interesting thing. It's like a lot of the artists, yes, they're younger, but they're still making it for people younger than them usually. So it's like the stuff that kids are listening to is being made by almost a generation older than them, or or at least half a generation. You know, sometimes I guess. I don't know, I guess. Yeah, this broad spectrum, but the point is, we're fucking old and yeah, there are young people and there's nothing we can do about it. Yeah, there are. Yeah, we make them. That's what we do. We are just young people making factories, and that is actually the the point of our existence. You know, I'd mentioned like we get to go to work, we got to pay bills, were going to make kids. That's all part of it to this whole h hey, look at this, look at this, don't look at that, look at this. Get distracted, commas. Now I'm always well, yeah, I keep your nose that. I'm always blown away to by our attention spans being so short. We forget things and the red herrings thrown our way to keep us distracted and from the real topics that need to be discussed. And sure every don't talk too much like that, though, because you'll sound like a flat earth or a queuere to bring it back. We bring it back around us. We do. Time is a flat circle, man, that's what we do. He already's just flat circle to it is it is. But I mean I often say, like, what happened to the kids in cages at the boarder. We don't discuss this anymore. Are they still there? Is Is fucking Ted Cruise, that piece of Shit. Still angry about Callin Kaepernick, like all these things again, kids at the border man. Yeah, but I mean people a fucking rage, tweeting and angry about all this stuff that. You know people should be angry about, the water in Flint, Michigan and everything else. And is it fixed? I don't know. I couldn't tell you. I hope so, HMM, but I don't know. No one's pissed off about it anymore. So we ain't hearing about it no more. I know I don't sit back drink a lemonade like an old man. You know you're I got a coffee here. They let me drink roughly sixty four ounces of coffee day. So I don't know if that's going to be one of those things where I lived to be a hundred and ten and there he goes, what's the secret to your longevity in life? And I say, Oh, sixty four hours of a coffee a day, or if I die in like a week, and they said we killed them most sixty four hours is a coffee a day. I'll tell you what. If you that, I don't know if you don't get that sixty four is a coffee day, but you have a headache, like if if you try to go a day without that, because I used to do the same thing and I'll get fucking headaches. It was like an addiction. But like you don't realize it's happening. You just drinking it because you enjoy it, and then if you tried to go a whole day without it, I bet you have a headache. I still drink coff you don't get me wrong, but I just know I used to drink like that much every day and I used to get headaches without it. So if I don't drink it, I walk around with a massive erection. So I'm sparing the world. Might insult the big old bonner. Yeah, consult the doctor for you. quit drinking coffee. No, I need it. I don't know, I just like it tastes good. God, it's better than the alternative. I mean, I was an alcoholic for how many years? So I'd say will when I'm am in the need of having a good time. I just poured myself a cup of Joe. It's all you need to know.
You know what I mean. It is better. Yeah, for sure. Yeah, I sure is. I like how we continuously just like conversations fall apart. Yeah, and we but the thing is, we tie things together, we let things just dissipate, doesn't matter. We're so fucking all over the place, you know. There's so many podcasts and radio shows out there that you scripts, we are obviously not one of them. Completely free form, completely, we just wing it for your entertainment pleasure. Will hopefully, hopefully, they are. People out there are liking it. That's true, man. We hope so, but otherwise we'd still be just talking and like a empty void, you know, because that's yeah, we like to talk. So, YEP, or the way we used to do it, conversing via messenger pigeon. Right, right, so, yes, looks. But unless you have anything else you want to discuss today, nate, I think we should let these fine furry folk go right about their day and do whatever the hell they plan on doing, whether it is drinking a massive amount of coffee or running from aliens or banging of stopping. Yeah, well, I was gonna go see. I was going to say separate the bunnies. Okay, but if you want to bang a bunny, I mean you don't probably want to seek you don't. Well, I was gonna say seek help. So you should tell somebody about it, because that's how like a Jeffrey dammers in the world probably get started and stuff. So it sounds like there's a lot of shame involved in that lifestyle. I don't know. MMM, I would imagine this where furies come from. HMM, that's what happens with them. You know what? A way to defence is updave, defence is a little too short. They got to jump over to the other side. Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, let's wrap it up like that. But I do want to thank everybody out there for taking the time to listen to her humble little program. Virtual hugs for all of you. I am Dave. That is nate, and this has been the selling out show piece.
