What it does is breaches into abrain chemically and no, cat your happiest memory chemically and then blocks on thatemotion and releases it chemically, and then it keeps your happy, happy.Hello, hello, hello, and thank you for tuning into the selling outshow where we screw up life at our leisure for your listening pleasure. Iam one of your host David Schultz, and over here by my side ismy good buddy and partner in crime, Nate Korzinski. Nate, how areyou? Ah, man, I'm hot and sticky. It's hot as weballs up here in New England. Dave, Oh, I don't want to hearany 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 thewhole month so far has been rain with it's barely any sun poking through thissummer. It's been miserable. But finally we get some heat and it's likeninety five hundred degrees up here. So so it's wet, sticky and that'show I'm doing. How you doing it? That's how I like it. Ilike 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, piecesof crap. No, I mean, I went down to the ocean andI don't know, like is one of those things where, even though you'vebeen vaccinated, I still wear masks so people don't think I'm like some kindof fucking Republican or something, and then they just see people running around allWilly Nilly, and I read stuff about variance and it is. It's justone of those things where I'd just I'm like people, man, I thinkwe'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, becauseany sign of a good vacation is when you come home broke in, alittle bit beaten up. That was me, baby, that was me. Soundslike heaven. Oh yeah, my own little slice to have, andthere was a lot of Hill billies in Galveston, Texas to so what thehotel I was staying at, there were some people in another room who hadan 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 rebeland whatever, confederate us and that. Yeah, confederate motherfuckers. And I'mlike 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 saidto my wife, I'm like, you know, all this stuff, Regaliaon the automobile and it's a fucking Hondai. Yeah, yeah, so you know, America first. Yeah, and he's fucking driving Japanese. So Icall it the hill billy Hondai. So yeah, but they should have seenthe people driving this fucking thing. They were they were like straight out oflike whatever in your mind's eye would see for people who'd own a vehicle likethis. They were that. Yeah, man, no, I picture itseems 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. Butit'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, likeI automatically am like man, like I don't have to interact with thesepeople and like, I don't know, I guess that's that's not true ofAmerican flags in general. I shouldn't say that, but it just seems likelike, for example, if you see a car driving or a pickup truckrather with a giant American flag like flying off it, like just, youknow, that dudes a douchebag. I'm sorry, you know, like.Well, I take it one further. N If there's even a little Americanstick 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 Tshirtto their show. We get it. You like rush. You're at arush 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 theband t shirt at the show. That's exactly what it is. You're toomuch of a fan, like. Yeah, a friend of mine pointed out awhile ago, like before Biden became president. He was like watch whenBiden gets elected, watch me never wear a biden hat or shirts like likeit's not normal to be that supportive where. You know, that's where it turnsinto the actual cult thing. They talked about anaticism. Right, it'sjust the last. He's over zealous, you know, but to make meman dude speaking of that stuff, like, I don't you know, I hategetting 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 tobreak, man, because it's like we're dealing with people who they're thinking they'reseeing 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, likethe first letters of this in this are this and they equal q and likethings like that. You know, that that's what the whole queue and onmovement is based on, and I was thinking, like it's going to bereally hard to reason people out of that, because these are also the same peoplethat are evangelical Christians usually, and these people look at all the randomshit 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 meto 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 luckwith 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 qand on fucking Weirdos right now. You like, how do we get ridof 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'rein Abbot territory, you're in Ted Cruz Central, down there, man, I don't I don't envy you that. But Yeah, gag me, MaoSpoon, I don't know, I'm surprised. You were talking about youwere talking about running into that, that person with the Hunda. I likeit was like weird and I thought you living down there. That's basically youwere the odd man out and the rest of them were all that like atthat. No, no, it's just the the proximity everything. The guywas in like the room next to mine. Right. I'm like, I reallydon't want to fucking bump into this guy when I have to go tothe ice machine. Yeah, you know. Yeah, or his wife, whois completely unabb unavoidable, because she could have been in fucking free Williethree the fucking like dude. She was like that's what I mean. Theyhadn't seen a dentist and forever. Yeah, and they've never passed on the thechance to have a freaking whole or a Ding Dong. It's like shewas 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 tohave 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 thinkshe's just fucking pure sugar coursing through her veins, you know, Maple Syrup. So, nate, you know, we talked about the the queue andon the que people, you know, just to kind of go back tothat 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 itjust justifies the fact that everybody who likes it is crazy. But I'm notimmune to being susceptible to things that I see online and influenced by a variousthings, and recently now, you know, I'm a big fan of kids inthe hall. You are many people out there. Are they have arevival coming on Amazon prime, hopefully sooner than later. Yes, but Ihappen 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, howshould I put this, like ufo awareness? Okay, boy, okay. He'sa believer. He is a believer that there's alien life forms and theyhave visited the earth and that the government's of the world have covered up theirexistence 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, thatthey probably exist. Right, right, statistically, it seems impossible that theydon'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 meanthe cosmos is fairly big, the galaxy is massive. Who Know? Almostinfinite? Sure, infinite? Yes, exactly. So to think there areno other alien life forms out there is just ridiculous. So I'm on thetwitter. I look at some of the stuff he posts and, to behonest with you, if fucking terrifies me, scares the Living Shitu of me.What because talking about like like links to things or just yes, orwhat? No, no, no, I'm sorry. Yes, thank youfor a force me to clarify. There are links to articles, okay,scientific journals even, about the validity behind aliens and alien spacecrafts ufos. Thathave been cited specifically by the United States government and recorded and are just completelyunexplainable. And the whole, I mean scenarios of how these things are likeplanes without wings, and this is should mean. Even had President Obama discussingit. 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. Theylike yes, like the FBI acknowledged that. They didn't acknowledge like,Oh, there are aliens, but they said, yes, there's some shitthat 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 informationdump sure a giant, you know, and no one gave a fuck.No one cares. Yeah, whatever, ufos, I don't don't mean aGoddamn thing. But then even me, like I said, I used toscroll by it or whatever, and then this one day I clicked onit and now I'm fucking terrified because I'm thinking about all the bad scenarios thatcould happen here and I wish I had lived my life more successfully to thepoint where I have like a cabin in the woods or a bunker. That'sexcessl to the Yes, yes, success to you. Did this is subsisa UNIBOMBER? No, well, no, I guess I don't want to alittle shanty like that. I don't want to be fucking completely crazy sendingpeople mail that could explode. But you know what I mean. where Iwant, like a place where I can run and hide. Yeah, shouldthat's all I want. And you know, success, like yeah, Oh,I want a man. Should know you don't want that, because theUFO, if they are, you know, with bad intentions, can just rollup on your pad and say Fuck you, Kim Kardashian and boil yourshit up. That's so I need to go, you know, dig ahole somewhere, something like it to be a lavish all right, right,yeah, just like a hole in the ground, like like in the walkingdead or something, you know, like. Well, not like and no,no, I want I want to go in that hole and have itbe like LIBERACCI's house. Okay, day. So, yeah, I got I'vesomething to tell you. There is there was a story that vice dida few years ago. It was a story about basically just a narrow downthere was a guy who manufactured LSD who had an underground bunker. It waslike some old missile silo, like it was a series of tunnels, butit 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'sexactly 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 theproperty. But I'm sure you could talk to someone pull some strings. Butmaybe the point of what you're saying is that you you haven't lived your lifeto 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. ButI'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 terrifiedof the idea that aliens will in fact be hostile, and then I willtake their money. Okay, I will build a giant, either underground complexor just remote, you know, compound somewhere, sure, where select fewcan come live with me when all this shit goes down and Independence Day becomesa fucking reality. Right, you just need some guns to defend it,you know, you got us well, train some guards. Yeah, that'sthat's says. A sticky situation too, because you know me, I'm antigun. I'm not into that kind of stuff. So I don't that thathonestly, hasn't really crossed my mind yet. It's more just like a place togo 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 orGeorgian narrows. The Zombie Apocalypse, for example, is always a backdropto human drama. It's always like other people that are the real danger inthose movies. It's like post apocalyptic, and the ones you have to worryabout aren't even the zombies. There the other humans that are desperate and tryingto live. That's true. And in an alien apocalypse or or whatever invasionI 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, theirtechnology 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 goingto one in the compound. So I get a fucking blow his head offto keep it away from my Harem that I will hand pick and select torepopulate the earth. That's when everything's over, in the dust settles. So thisisn't scare you at all. This this isn't, like, like mebring it up now, affect you in any any way. If you thinkabout 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 lifejust to get a little more serious, like ever since I got off harddrugs. I feel like a lot lighter in my said, I worryabout things a lot less. I just I feel like I've been through alot of garbage, whether living on the streets or in jail, whatever itwas like where. I know that's a totally science fiction sort of scenario withthinking, but but really like you know, if I end up without a homeor 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 togo that far. I probably dead within a week and I probably kill myselfbefore a long but but I just mean I don't worry about those things asmuch from ahead of time. You know what could be. I live moreokay, 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 neversee and it's like this weird paranoia that just came over me suddenly, butit's something I think about now I'm like, well, just added to the listand, like you said, you just don't focus on I try notto either. I mean everybody, and that's the whole point of the ratrace, right. We all exist. We wake up, we go towork, we pay our bills, we do whatever, and this is alla major distraction from the entire point of life, which is to ask questionsand wonder and theorize and ponder on. You know, the purpose of whatwe'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'malready getting fucked by my fellow species. Yeah, you know. So keepyour head down, find a routine. If they as land, you justfind 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 tosalt water, like an alien nation, and I can just have a houseboat, right, or just water, like in signs? Hmm, amnight 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 arewhat is our bodies? Percentage of water? Probably seventy percent two asit 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 comingafter you water. People want a world. Yeah, does nothing that opens?No, no, definitely not. But Hey, if anybody out thereis interested in joining me out in the middle of nowhere, or potentially underground, to hide and make love and to, you know, Weird Shit, youcan 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. Comeget me a punkery. Yeah, fun, good. You know, I mentionedthe 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 knowwhatever. Everybody's got a fucking podcast. But still, like, we talkedabout stuff that affects humans, right, I mean people. We're dealing withthe 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 offpictures of soap at Schultz, soap, Shultz, I spell the name becauseI 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 apodcast. No, no, you can't wash your nuts with the podcast. This is sad but true. You know earlier I just mentioned you couldbecome a great domesticated pet for an alien.
That's like Porno for Pyros, sayingabout way back in one thousand nine hundred and ninety three. If theymake great members, we'd make great pets. But you are a pet lover.We have discussed this many times for a great links. Yet, thatbeing 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 ita 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 twobunnies that honestly sit there in cages and, like you know, they don't theydon't interact because they're in separate cages. But recently I've been like, let'slet 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'sjust like a fence that you can connect to itself in a ring. Sothey're they're both in there, but I would put a partition wall of alsoof like a fencing almost like a chicken wire, ish fancy, a littlethicker than that. But but between them, because they've never lived together. Theybeen separate cages. So I figured let's put them you know, puta little separation in between them so they okay, sive each other, butyeah, it, you know, before they just dive into life together.But anyway, that little partition in the middle is a little lower than thesurrounding 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. Youknow, I'll put them back in their cage at night so foxes don't getthem or whatever, but I'll I put them out there during the day andthey've been out a few times and it's never been a problem. But todayI go inside after putting them out and I look back a few minutes laterand one of the rabbits has somehow gotten over that little partition and is bangingaway 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 likemy initial instant is these dudes are actually brothers. So this is kind offucked up in all kinds of levels. You know, I've no problems gaybunnies. They're both males, but you know, brothers is, you know, as a taboo. I'm not willing to see to just like turn theother way right. You know, I had some questions. So I ranover and I like grab one of them off the other one and put himback 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 whenhe put weight on it, and I go inside. I make sure they'refine. For a while, nothing's happening. I go inside, the same thinghappens. So, you know, Long Story Short, I could notkeep these bunnies from fucking and you know, love will find a way, asthey say. Yes, and apparently he apparently there's because so, youknow, I figured like, if one of them is always going to jumpinto the other one side anyway, and they're both on that side, whichis half the size of the thing, I might as well just take thefucking wall out. So they're going to be together anyway. Now they havemore room, just like you know, so for their and docential love fest. You just gave him more room to Brop. Well, I wanted tomake sure I was safe first. I'm like, let me well, notthat 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, malerabbits murder each other if you leave them alone. And it was saying,you know, watch them, put them together and they will fuck, theywill bang and like established dominance and it's really disturbing watch, but it's actuallya 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 believeme. In the eyes, something like Gus do, the dudes in Albinois 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. Theyas 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 lotof times they'll reverse the mount each other, which basically means fucking each other inthe 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 theother one. And I'm like, wow, Jesus, that you know, andwhich did not happen. You know, spoiler alert this. This all endedpretty blood free, just, you know, two bunnies laying around smokingbutts, Fuckin posted bliss. Good to...
...know, when you do get enslavedby alien race, that you can just go face fuck somebody and be likehey, he's cool, I'm just establishing my dominance. It's right, turnthe other way, look away. Yeah, but, as you said in thebeginning, it's an issue I had not really dealt with before. LikeI mentioned on another episode how I had hamsters as a kid and one ofthem, like, we left them alone and they made it as a andI be worried the other one. Yes, yeah, one of US errated shootthe head off the other one and then choked on the bone, sothey both died like. That's what was in my mind about this, andarticles 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 Blizus. You should put this into written form and kind of make softcore bunnyporn. 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'vesaid this so many times, because I don't. I can't get into thewhole into your mind to understand the love of animals. But like when animalsdo fucking crazy shit like this, yeah, it's enough to make you go,well, that's it. I'm done now. incestuous homosexual rabbits, Ithink. You know, I think it is. That's enough. I thinkI'm good. Males, you know, stick to Goldfish. I don't knowa 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 himgo free in the woods and they can go fucking jump and face, fuckingHump 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 theway nature intended. I mean, you know, whatever, just let himgo. You know, they say if you love something and you said itfree, if it comes back to you, is meant to be. So thereyou go, you know, because what's the benefit? What's the youhave these things. I get to see this star crossed lovers. It's likea it's a Romeo in Romeo story, but they're MONTAGUES.

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 tosome of my previous comments on an earlier episode regarding mumble wrap and a lotof 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 peoplelisten to. Sure I am old, the popular music being bought and listenedto by young people isn't for me, just as Drummond Bass, techno ordeath metal in the s wasn't for my parents. Generation evolution is just afact, 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 becomessocially acceptable, as well as taste in art and entertainment. The world isalways moving forward. US Old folks can shake our heads at what the youngstersare getting up to if we want, but let's just remember that our folksand their folks probably shook their heads and or fists at a lot of ourtrends and artistic contributions. I think a lot of my frustration with modern hiphop came from the fact that I had some cognitive dissonance over a rapper likeTakashi, six nine or Cardib being technically in the same category as most deafor 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, popularrappers with those technical skills, be it Kendrick Lamar or j Cole. That'snot the point. I'm trying to say that skill isn't relegated to just howtechnically proficient and virtuosic one is at their chosen craft. It depends on thecontext the style of music you're even trying to make. There are a tonof Eddie van Halen or Dave Mustaine fans who would Pooh Pooh the more simplisticguitar 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 puttingtogether simple but solid tunes. Guitar whnkery is just a different skill than themore punk rock style of the Ramons or Nirvana, for example, and there'san audience for both. The lyrics to knowledge of self by Black Star can'tbe compared to a song like wap by Cardi B. The intent is different, the style is different, the whole subgenre of rap is different, whichleads me into my next point. Now Dave and I have both set alot about how annoying subgenres can be. I listen to a lot of metaland the list of metal sub genres could take up the rest of this segmentif I were to try to list them all. You have the basics,like thrash, death metal, black metal, power metal, the new wave ofBritish heavy metal, Goth Metal, industrial metal and on and on.That would be overwhelming enough, but then there are bands that take elements ofmultiple subgenres and mix them. So you get blackened death metal, which isnaturally death metal with black metal elements. You get the idea. It evengets more confusing. You get symphonic, blackened, technical brutal death metal,and yes, those are all real mix and matchable subgenres. I'm sure thereare a ton of symphonic, blackened, technical, brutal death metal acts scatteredacross the interwebs right now. So what am I getting at? Well,as ridiculous as all that sounds, it does serve a purpose other than makingnerdy metal heads argue over how to label their favorite band. These titles canactually be really helpful for both the artist trying to sell themselves to an audiencewho's never heard them before, as well as to that audience looking for aspecific sound. It's just for ease of categorization, and the more specific youcan 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 youcalled suffocation a death metal band instead of brutal death, mittal bond with technicalelements or whatever. To bring it back to Hiphop, sometimes we forget thathip hop has subgenres to and just as I am not a fan of powermetal, but I love me some technical death metal, there are ways tonarrow down your search for hip hop. You may not be into trap musicwith its Stark, robotic beats or the simplistic lyric patterns, but you mayreally get into a backpack rapper like common...
...or Talib quality, with their deepersubject 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 ofbebop or big band jazz throughout the years, you can see how gangster rap likeNwa gradually morphed into dre and snoops, G FUNK and ultimately to trap musicfrom ti or Gucci Maine, all the while refining it sound and representingthe culture from which it springs. Socially conscious rappers from the s like krsOne 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 shouldthey choose. There are countless artists working there, as there are in theunderground of any style of music. So if I were to try to puta cap on this whole mess of an essay, in which I rambled aboutDorky subgenres and mostly sounded like an out of touch old dude, I guessit would be this. Popular music is an ever evolving species. It changesover time with the tastes and sensibilities of the public. As we live anddie, those tastes aren't always going to make sense to us as we ageout 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 thinkI ever cared about what was popular as a kid, so why would Ipay 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 popsong. 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 isold, and so am I. There have always been shallow, catchy popacts. Why would it be any different? Now? I'm going to go listento some Wood Tang and pretend it's still one thousand nine hundred and ninetysix. Well, you know, Billy Joel had something to say about thiswith his song. It's still rock and roll to me, M and thatwas 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'stalking about the new way is can movee. To me, I don't know.MMM, yeah, I don't know the lyrics the rightest, but likethe points, is a broad is checked? Yes, thank you, thank you. But the and I'm going to use a word that I like tohave 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. Iwas like, well, what's a southern flag? Quickly fix that. Butwe 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 wholealien segment one bit. So here I am. That was one big setup for an anal joke. Yeah, I didn't use it. So untilyou 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 wordAmalgam is because, you know, you blend, you take different elements ofeverything, you put it together and you have music. It doesn't matter whatstyle or type it is, and you'd mentioned that. We've talked about thisbefore, because I don't like all these labels, but, as you justmentioned, it does make it easier for someone to find maybe what they're lookingfor and what they like. Sure, yeah, man, it's just thething 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 metalbe in there a technical this w yeah, it's like there's a lotof that nonsense. And again that's young people, and here I am anold guy. Those, those discussions aren't for me. Like, I'll listento what I want to listen to. But who let the young kids argueand listen to what they want to listen to. I've earned the right tosit back and just go. Let me pop in my old Walkman cascept where. Yeah, you know. Yeah, exactly. I like the fact youdoing voices now. You're in you're in the voice business. Add it tomy repertoire. I will add it to that repertoire, as a matter offact. But you know, these kind of discussions happen. When we wereyoung, it was just between five people in a basement. Yeah, theywere you argue with people in the Philippines?...
Yeah, I will. That's thewhole point of the Internet, right, talking is is to argue, likethis movie sucks and movies great, this song sucks, you know whatever. You know. Everything is about dissenting opinions and negativity, and you havelike the certain people out there who are like, yeah, you can tobe positive all the time. Yeah, and they probably have way more followersand likes and people smashing those Ding Dong button cling clang, he's he's thatlike this person. But uh, you know, to kind of bring itback 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 Iand I've spent a considerable amount of time in Mexico, so I'm fairlyfamiliar with some of the the cultural aspects of their music. And I sawa debate raging where someone was comparing Latino or Latin x country how it's nottoano and it's not no Tenne music and it's not this and that and likethey've really got to put it in a pigeon hole what they producing. AndI'm like, Whoa, Whoa, whoa. Like to me that was like toomuch, like sure, you want to argue over that and and whatever, but I mean, yeah, back to your piece. is applicable witheverything, especially with the hip hop you mentioned. Yeah, I have neverlistened 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 ahiphop fan they probably be like, well, what the fuck? Man? Likeyou don't know anything about this, so you just don't generalize and callof this. And the same thing with the Latino music or country or whatever. If I try to like just, you know, put it in onepackage 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 baseof folks. It's weird, I know, man, but, likeyou said, it's there's always something to argue about and the Internet is fertileground for that sort of Shit. Man. It's is that where you're seeing thisstuff? Like about the death metal? You brought that up like twice.Yeah, technical, that's on the the the book. Well, technicaldeath 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 reasonthey are different like that. Like a black metal song is way different thana 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'svery like muddy and like growly vocals and, you know, intricate drums and guitarsand 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 getlike like an Invey Mountstein style guitarist, like insane guitar playing, and andnot just Solos, like the song structures, like the the the verses are morecomplex to play than like an Eddie van Hale and Solo, you knowwhat 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 sametime I'll listen to a black metal band, which is some of them can barelyplay guitar and it's just about atmosphere and a cool sort of riff andit's like the punk of metal, which I've I think I've done a segmentabout, but it's basically they're two things. It's both metal, but one ofthem, you know one, the guy that plays black metal could neverprobably play a technical death postficiency. Yeah, it's just yeah, proficiency, butbut again it's two different styles, and that's what I mean. LikeCardi B from what I've heard I've got, granted I haven't explored her catalog somuch, but as an ignorant, you know, few time listener,I would say that her lyrics aren't quite as deep as somebody that like mostdeaf 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 togetherand 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. Thankyou. She's, you know, got plenty to talk about. She's hadan interesting life, from what I understand. But and she puts it into art, which is a lot better than a lot of people do. Likethat'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 andthey're they're putting forth the effort to create something in a studio. You knowhow fun that is, recording like on a for track and putting down vocalsand you know, doing stuff like that's cool to do. So it's likepeople are creating and I think that's always a good thing, even if Idon't always like the finished product. You know. Well, reply with thaton 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 motherfuck. This is all art well creating,...
...don't true. Remember? Come on, now, Simm a down now, come on, you know you guessthat could be your old person stands than just grumble, grumble, grumble. Can't we all just get along up to the run? Okay, Ohman, we have certainly dated ourselves this time around. I was talking aboutthe movie alien nation. I'm sorry, much, Robby King Chuck. Yeah, Holy Macaroni. Yeah, here we go. Someone fit us with somewalkers with tennis balls on the bottom. We have earned it, I'm tellingyou. And then I don't know if it's a blessing or a curse thatI've never heard a Cardi B song and recently I realize I've never watched tomy recollection a fast and furious movie, because there's been all these memes aboutVin 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 understandthat reference. I don't get it. Yeah, but I've never seen oneof these movies. I got no need for it. I you're not missinganything, man. You know again, it's fair young people that like thathave a raging heart on and want to drive fast cars. Well, itcan't be for that young people, because the franchise has been around for likea 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, youknow, I was too old for this when it came out. Andthen I stopped and I thought about it and like wait, the people whomade this were older than me. Oh yeah, Tim Burton and Danny Elfmanand the people involved, and for me to say it was like a generationalthing 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 ofthe artists, yes, they're younger, but they're still making it for peopleyounger than them usually. So it's like the stuff that kids are listening tois being made by almost a generation older than them, or or at leasthalf a generation. You know, sometimes I guess. I don't know,I guess. Yeah, this broad spectrum, but the point is, we're fuckingold and yeah, there are young people and there's nothing we can doabout it. Yeah, there are. Yeah, we make them. That'swhat we do. We are just young people making factories, and that isactually the the point of our existence. You know, I'd mentioned like weget to go to work, we got to pay bills, were going tomake kids. That's all part of it to this whole h hey, lookat this, look at this, don't look at that, look at this. Get distracted, commas. Now I'm always well, yeah, I keepyour nose that. I'm always blown away to by our attention spans being soshort. We forget things and the red herrings thrown our way to keep usdistracted and from the real topics that need to be discussed. And sure everydon't talk too much like that, though, because you'll sound like a flat earthor a queuere to bring it back. We bring it back around us.We do. Time is a flat circle, man, that's what wedo. He already's just flat circle to it is it is. But Imean I often say, like, what happened to the kids in cages atthe boarder. We don't discuss this anymore. Are they still there? Is Isfucking 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 stuffthat. You know people should be angry about, the water in Flint,Michigan and everything else. And is it fixed? I don't know. Icouldn'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 nomore. 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 roughlysixty four ounces of coffee day. So I don't know if that's going tobe one of those things where I lived to be a hundred and ten andthere he goes, what's the secret to your longevity in life? And Isay, Oh, sixty four hours of a coffee a day, or ifI die in like a week, and they said we killed them most sixtyfour hours is a coffee a day. I'll tell you what. If youthat, I don't know if you don't get that sixty four is a coffeeday, but you have a headache, like if if you try to goa day without that, because I used to do the same thing and I'llget fucking headaches. It was like an addiction. But like you don't realizeit's happening. You just drinking it because you enjoy it, and then ifyou tried to go a whole day without it, I bet you have aheadache. I still drink coff you don't get me wrong, but I justknow I used to drink like that much every day and I used to getheadaches without it. So if I don't drink it, I walk around witha massive erection. So I'm sparing the world. Might insult the big oldbonner. 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 alcoholicfor how many years? So I'd say will when I'm am in theneed 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. Itis better. Yeah, for sure. Yeah, I sure is. Ilike how we continuously just like conversations fall apart. Yeah, and we butthe thing is, we tie things together, we let things just dissipate, doesn'tmatter. We're so fucking all over the place, you know. There'sso many podcasts and radio shows out there that you scripts, we are obviouslynot one of them. Completely free form, completely, we just wing it foryour entertainment pleasure. Will hopefully, hopefully, they are. People outthere are liking it. That's true, man. We hope so, butotherwise 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 waywe used to do it, conversing via messenger pigeon. Right, right, so, yes, looks. But unless you have anything else you wantto discuss today, nate, I think we should let these fine furry folkgo 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 bangingof stopping. Yeah, well, I was gonna go see. I wasgoing to say separate the bunnies. Okay, but if you want to bang abunny, 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 andstuff. 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 todefence is updave, defence is a little too short. They got tojump over to the other side. Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, let'swrap it up like that. But I do want to thank everybody out therefor taking the time to listen to her humble little program. Virtual hugs forall of you. I am Dave. That is nate, and this hasbeen the selling out show piece.
