What it does is breaches into your brain chemically and no cage your happiest memory. Chemically. It didn't blocks on that emotion. It reises 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. We get a great one plan for you today and I am one of your host, David Schultzen. Over here, right by my side is my buddy nate Korzinski. Nate, how are you this fine day? I'm I'm favoring one butt cheek. I get my shot in the ass one some month. I just got it today, so I'm favoring the right cheek because the left cheek is it's very intimate thing. I you know, like I share with this nurse like just you know, I guess. I guess that's the way it is with all medical professionals if they're getting that intimate. But this chick is literally grabbing a chunk of my butt cheek and you now inserting something into it. So well, I will have you know, it's only intimate for you. Maybe her end of the whole transaction. I think she loves business. You. Okay, all right, you can start stalking her on social media. Maybe, maybe. I don't like a squeeze my butt cheek. That means something we shared a moment. But Anyway, man, I'm doing all right. How were things over there? Okay, but I don't want to talk about myself. Oh yeah, no, Siree Bob, no, no, because there's much more pressing issues at hand. Okay, now, you know, addiction is a topic that we tread on quite frequently on our humble little program true, in as many forms, because it can, you know, show itself in many different ways. Right, that's right, addicted to a lot of different things. But lately, and this is my grand reveal, I'm pulling back the curtain here on the wizard of Oz. Okay, this is how the sausage is made when we have private conversations, not on air. You have been sending me a gaggle so many Glenn Danzig memes. Now I've mentioned you that I'm surprised a community such as this exist, even though I shouldn't be, because the Internet is a wonderful place, yeah, full of many wondrous things. Yet that someone would devote their time I'm to just creating endless Glenn Danzig memes to me is a lot, I suppose. So can you at least tell me how you stumbled into this and why you are, I don't know, just so hooked into this stuff? Well, because it's glorious, it's amazing, it's it's one of the best things in the world. That's why. Okay, so this is also a cult? Yeah, I don't know, I maybe it's. It's a facebook page, a community that I belong to, and it's called awful pictures of Glenn Danzig, and I'm giving it a little plug here. It's probably going to, you know, blow up with our you know. Oh, yeah, sure, sure. I mean, how many members do you think are in it, the group already? Honestly, who knows, it could be a percentage of the world's population, with how awesome this, this, this crazy is. Yeah, I have no idea, honestly, but it's it's tight enough where the administrators and everyone seemed to have interacted at some point, like, I don't know, we have. I'm very involved in it, as you've seen. And Yeah, I guess it may be a form of substitute addiction for someone like myself. It's easy to fall into. You know, someone sent me the first meme of free it was a yeah, some funny picture of Glenn Danzig carrying Kitty Litter or whatever to his car and snappy little clever caption. And now it's it's weird. Now it's getting bizarre. They're fusing iggy pop with Danzig, Dan Ziggy, you know, things like that. A lot of photoshop going on. Yeah, a lot of in jokes and yeah, and you've been the collateral damage. You've been receiving a lot of that in your inbox. So, yeah, I was going to say I wake up sometimes to a new meme. Yep, this is unsolicited. Oh Yeah, you just send these that you at your whimsy. Out of the goodness of my heart, let's be exactly. You wake up, probably immediately check your group and they go I...

...like this one. I'm sending this to Dave right now. Yeah, no hesitation, and I'm concerned, I really am. Just you know, it's like one of those things where if it does really catch on, like you're kind of implying here, and it starts snowballing into something bigger, before you know it is going to be a kids in high school, skipping class in the bathroom just looking at Glenn Danzig memes, or even clinics devoted a separating people from their phone so they can stop you making fun of Glenn Danzig. People are going to get on heroin to get off Glenn Danzig. meames maybe. I mean, listen, in all serious now, you'd mentioned it's like a substitute addiction, which is a good thing. Yeah, right, this is a very positive thing. It's just so weird to me that it is in fact somewhat popular thing. So it's well, listen, okay. So Glenn Danzig, just to kind of put a cap on this whole thing, is sure, is a figure who takes himself very seriously and that's where a lot of the humor comes from. He's he's a very serious guy. He's also, you know, fairly short and stature and he's someone's very concerned with his image. He's got a very he's got a brand, he's got he's very black, very vampiric, very, you know, satanic, dark angel stuff, and you know, originally the singer from the misfits, if our listeners don't know, and went on to to form Sam Haine, which is a great kind of postpunk project, and then Danzig, the more rockier metal year project, his solo project, and and he's done a lot. But the thing is, yeah, he takes himself very seriously. He was, there's a famous video him getting knocked out by somebody backstage after trying to get real tough with someone back state. He gets knocked out, which started, I think, a lot of the humor surrounding him. And he's, like I said, he's very, very strong guy when he was younger, but now he's kind of let himself go, as a lot of us have. We're all older now. You know, it is what it is, but he's he's still doesn't have a big sense of humor and he's had a lot of like diva like behavior. I don't know, I'm going off on Glen Danzig, but see, this is how addictive this whole thing is. I'm just I could talk this whole episode about this fucking yeah. Well, Hey, we got to be careful with that because you might get some other people hooked right on these means. But the thing is, I get it too. It's like Glenn Danzig, you would you would expect him, him to be maybe sitting on a throne of flaming horn goats. Yeah, or something in some castle and Transylvania, not to be, you know, hauling his kitty litter out of the Pigley wiggly. Right, I get that. And again, like you said, his personality can be a little off putting to people. I actually recall him, didn't he? You said he got knocked out backstage, but didn't he land a punch on Ricky Rachman during headbangers ball? He may have. I thought that was Al Jergenson that did that, but maybe, or maybe many people have punched Ricky Ragman. I. Yeah, I'm trying to throw him in a fireplace or something. You know, that would be on brand. Yeah, you know. Yeah, it's because he's a little short, muscular, sure, crazy, evil guy. Yeah, that's right. Yeah, this is something else. It's just means, it's fun. I mean not to kind of go off on a tangent here, but memes are one of the main reasons why I don't use facebook anymore, but not because of these in particular, but the misinformation, HMM, that we're very commonly intertwined with these. Back and was it two thousand and sixteen and I've always had an issue with people who look at memes or anything on the Internet face value and just go well, that's that's true, that's gonna be yeah, and that's all. I'm going out. You know, base my thoughts and beliefs is because someone put together a mem and in two and a half seconds and that irritated me and I'm like, fuck you, facebook, I'm done. Yeah, I'm out. Yeah, but I guess in a weird twist of fate, it can also work in the power of good. That's right, are of the light and even Stranger, starring Glen Danzig, nate NOG yeah, nate, nate. Need I just experienced something that I think is normal for most parents, but for me it was a little surreal odd. Earlier today, yeah, I was jamming out some tunes and my eight year old came into the room and before I knew it, we were both are guitaring, rocking out, just totally dancing around the house carefree, like, you know, no problems in the world. But the reason why I found it so unusual, I guess, was because it was to like faith the more and to the lemon heads. And these are fans that, when I was a teenager were so influential and so big to me. I never thought to be a moment in my life where I would have a son, young child and we be just totally jamming out to the music...

...that I love so much as a kid. Wow, man, that's that's a gratifying moments, a real sure, but that's got to feel pretty good, and it did. It did. But the same time it's like, I'm forty three. Yeah, I'm no spring chicken, right, you know. So just to kind of like think of that for a second, go, here's a forty three year old dude, and I mean, to top it all off, I'm rocking a kids in the hall t shirt, not as I love your t shirt. Yeah, so I was like going full on, you know, nostalgia nerd s nust down, totally herd. Yeah, and he was having a blast. He's a dad. I love these songs, man, they're great and like, what what is going on here? And I don't think there's all ever apply again, like ten years from now, yeah, when he's a teenager. Yeah, he's not going to be like yeah, man, your music is pretty cool. You never know, man, he might become more of a musical efficionado and get into the hole. You know, Oh, listen to this, these pioneers from this era, and you know he might get into that Shit. You never know, there are maybe there's a whole nostalgia factor, or Retro Factory Rather, to the younger generations as well. You know, you could be right. I mean, I don't know it. I think with me, basically I kind of expect the whole fuck you, dad and thing to be coming. Yeah, during the teenage years and like everything you like is lame. COULD BE? Could so? If I could have bottled this moment, if I could just like, I don't trapped it and in glass, MMM, like the villains from Superman, like General Zod, floating through the Phantom Zone, right own it forever. Here's the other thing is that most people, when they'd have an experience like this, they'd pulled their phone out. I was just going to say that you could actually capture this memory if you really want to do but you know I did not, because that's not how I roll. No, I'm just like, straight on, Hey, I'm in the moment, we're having a blast, enjoy it. I am so not the guy who has to pull out his camera and document everything good, which I'm if it's a good thing or a bad thing. I don't know. Who knows? I mean, I really yeah, you get you should be living for the moment. I lived my whole life kind of, I don't say avoiding being in pictures, like when we were younger. We didn't have the ease of quick phone. Pull your phone out and take a picture. was just like film cameras all the time. You didn't even know what your pictures looked like until you got him developed. So, you know, I didn't really get in a lot of pictures. And then now I'm seeing a lot of pictures from those years and kind of like Shit, I wish I had taken more pictures. Are Been in more pictures. So part of me is leaning towards you know, yeah, you know, maybe take out your camera or your phone. Now when things happen and part of me is like, you know, fuck, I hate going to a concert when everyone's looking through their phones or or everywhere you are people are, yes, selfeeing this and but that's coming from a dude who takes like nine hundred pictures of his pets constantly. Okay, I noise my family and put them all over social media, so I'm definitely well guilty of snake. Let's take this a step further, because even if I had decided to videotape this jam that I had earlier, this are jam, but the air jam, it was awesome. Dude, is incredible. You were like was, you were like Eddie and Wolfgang Van Hill, and I wouldn't go that far. Well, are, because why? Yeah, I guess, I don't know. I was doing some bass. I was flicking my fingers around like a man. You going to play this bass with your fingers, dude, this is what you do. But Anyway, point was, or what I was trying to allude to here, was those people who do in fact take pictures everything. I guess there's a line that I would kind of define people who do it for the good reasons or those who do it for shitty reasons, and I'm big on you know, again yet again, we are older, right. We didn't have all this technology when we're young. So when, even when in your family photos fucking a man like, your eyes were closed, you were blinking, but fuck, that was the picture. Yeah, you know, what I mean because, like you said, you had film, so whatever it happened at that time was what you had. You for St Gumped, you done. Okay, that's the picture. Now, and this is the other side of the slope that I was trying to refer to. Here, people stage everything right, oh my God, like I didn't like that picture, let's take it again, or trying to force these moments, yea, to I don't know. Yeah, impress people on social media, I don't know, or have these perfect photos for for what? I'm not exactly sure. Yeah, no, I definitely hear that. It's true. It's like at first I was questioning your your reasoning of good reasons or bad reasons, because I'm like, it was sounding like the no true Scotsman argument, like who's WHO's making this determination, like how do you know what's a good reason for this person be taking the picture? But now you make a lot of sense, because it's like, are you doing it just in press a million people on social media? Are you doing it for posterity, for your own memories and...

...something to look back on? And I guess I don't know, since I'm thinking in real time here. Part of it is both because I go through my old social media. I'm new to Instagram, which is probably a more appropriate place to focus on photos. Obviously that's the whole point of it. But My facebook, which I've been on for got, you know, a decade or so, twelve years or so. I've got so many pictures that I would lose hours if I just tried to like look through old pictures. And when I do like just delve into it for a moment, sometimes I'm like wow, I'm glad, I'm glad I posted that, I'm glad I took that, and so I don't know, pictures aren't bad. I guess it's just there's too many of them. They lose their specialness when there's too many of them. So there is that. But we have the technology, we have the opportunity, you know, I not use it, I guess, but you know, there's nothing wrong with just experiencing life and living each moment for the moment and not having to document anything everything either, you know. So either way, I guess there's no wrong way to live as long as you still breathe and you still live in you know, it's no no handbook for this shit. So I'm I'm leaving you, Dave. What? Where are you going? Why are you going? Now? I'm I don't know if I'm leaving you, because we do this podcast from across the country from each other. So it's not like I'm you know, I'm of we've already left each other. You've already left me, you've left me stranded. But I'm going as I used to go every year, but last year prevented me from going. Last Shitty two thousand and twenty. I'm going to visit my brother in Colorado, as I do, and I'm leaving for three weeks. So we're going to have to figure out some recording schedules stuff here, buddy, but sure we can do that. I will say this. Flying on a plane right now seems very enticing to me. Oh yeah, well, because they separate you. So you're not, you know, if you're flying coach, you're still not jam next to some fat, sweaty Sh Shlub in a tube skyrocketing the orbit of you earth. You know what I mean. You still have some distance there. That's a good point. And and, believe it or not, flights were pretty affordable, like you know. So not only are you paying less, but you have a more comfortable flight. Perhaps that's you know, wow, I had a flight schedule for last year in September, was it? No, August, late August, and I got great rates, of course, because coronavirus, but I had to cancel it because I told my wife I was going. She's like, well, that's all fine and Dandy, but when you come home you're not sleeping in my bed, you're quarantining for two weeks. Yeah, and now you know I'm married, so you know the intimate moments, they come and go. You kind of have to do them by you know, when I hear yeah, right, not the opposite of playing it by here. I want to play by your baby. But the thing is is like, okay, well, but still I want to if I do a trip, I want be, you know, bubba boy, right, right. So you know, I hear you three weeks, that's a good trip for you, man. That's a long time to go hang out and have some fun, well, as much fun as you can have. I mean I imagine now that we are year into the pandemic, you know, it's not as tough as it was in the beginning to be able to have fun right, because you can still go to restaurants and things like that, but you just got to maintain certain protocols. That's all sure. And the thing is, what I'm going to be doing out there is mostly trying to get time on the mountain, and you're already pretty distant on the mountain. There's the Gondola situation where you're often thrown in the you know, little bubble floating up the mountain with a few people, and I guess that they they're spacing those out more so the lines are inevitably longer, but when you're on the mountain they are they're kind of fixing this by you have to make reservations to go on the mountain on a specific day and they only let so many people. So you have to kind of plan your ski days ahead of time as opposed to just hey, let's pop onto the mountain for a little while like so that's a good thing. I mean, there's less people out, there is less idiots to bump into, and that's always an issue. You know you're out there there's dangerous bunch of kids who don't know what they're doing on the mountain. And you could crash into him and went and now, and now they're all full of full of germs. So it will. That's it. I've never been skiing, so I was imagine like an s movie and like everything's a ski school. Yeah, something, you know what I mean. So, yeah, I think you'd lose half the appeal. Yes, better off dead, but was very accurate movie. You know, kids on bikes. There actually are people on bikes now with skis attached, like the classic movie better off dead with John Q sack. If our listeners aren't familiar, they should be.

But in Curtis Armstrong, hold I wait a minute, wait one second. I think I'm on is something here? This is pure snow. It's everywhere. Have you any idea what the street value of this mountain? If you could do that with a bark, a lounger or something, that's really the only way at ever ski. HMM, if I could just sit down and just kind of, you know, glide, listen, you get going so fast would be terrifying. I I prefer to be on my legs where I could at least have some control and stop, like skid to a stop. But on a on a couch or on a even on a bike. Let's get the shit out of me. You just get going so fast going down the mountain. It's like it's time to turn. It's like am I gonna be able to turn it? I'm scaring myself out of going skiing. It's been two years. I'm like, wow, that shit scary. What am I doing it? I'm just good. I can't wait, man, I honestly can't wait. Well, let it for you. Yeah, Dude, last for you last year, and not only was it a pandemic, but I had just come out of my back injury phase. So they were telling me not to go anyway and I was kind of, to be honest, going to be like, well, fuck that, like to go if I could, if I had the opportunity, against medical advice. But but now I've had a whole year to heal up and I'm just that much, much more hungry for it. So I can't wait and we'll find a way to record whether I do it in Colorado and give give y'all a heads up, a little little status report from that. They're on the slopes. We can know. Go to you live. I'm on the liquords right now. Yeah, yeah, the weather guy in the helicopter traffic. Rather, I think the weather guy's ever been in a helicopter, but you get my drift. Yeah, you know, yeah, you're sanitizing the snow right now. They're dosing it with Purerel to make it clean for the next group to roll down aimlessly. Yeah, but yeah, I mean, I don't know, man, it's kind of like a weird thing. Now getting back to life. You know, I can't say per normal or per usual because you know, both of us are are smart enough to know that, let's say, even if you get vaccinated, you still have to wear masks. You know what I mean? Like, you can't. It's not like, Oh, I got my two shots of the vaccine, I'm streaking the quad right. You know what I mean? You just can't do that. You still had this still protocols you have to follow. Sure, but the other day I was thinking, I'm like, you know, I think I've gotten everything I could ever want because of this pandemic. Now there's a lot of frustrations involved and things I don't like, but I mean I'm not obligated to be anywhere any time per se. I don't have to go and socialize. I don't even have to go to a movie theater. This is like a curb your enthusiasm episode. You've turned it to Larry David. Is it wonderful? Like I don't have to, you know, do anything I don't want to do, other than go to work, I guess, would be the main exception. But you can use covid as as an end all, you know, excuse for anything. Sure, man, no, that's true. I agree. I've had appointments that I've actually canceled because I'm like, you know what, I think I got a sniffle. You guys said, I don't, I shouldn't show up. Yeah, I'm not going there. I got a sniffle here where it's I am. Oh, do you want to meet up with this later at the mall or something? Be Like No, I'm not a supers better. Yeah, exactly. What do you think I who do you think I am? Yeah, do you fucking nuts know what kind of asshole would I be if I went? Yeah, well, you know, I live in Texas and I bitched about the government here seems like every other episode forever. But they governor lifted the ban on masks. Yeah, ask mandate rather. Yeah, and Lazy Best. I know he is. He's an idiot. But the thing is, luckily most people here, at least where I live in Dallas, keep their masks on. Stories and restaurants are still maintaining those protocols. So, despite his like proclamation that, hey, the lone star state is doing it our way and, you know, screw this and screw that, we're going to be free. So most people like yeah, Um, do whatever the hell you want, you jerk. We still want to be safe. You Right. Yeah, so, thankfully, that's that's a good thing. And the other thing too. Hey masks like, man, if you're ugly or something, or if you got like rancid breath or some dusty assed heath, or if you're just cold. Dude. I've been enjoying that my girlfriend a laugh, because should be like, you can take your mask off, we're out of the store, we're in the car or whatever. I'm like, the car hasn't warmed up yet, I'm leaving the mask on and it's fucking cold. And yet yeah, like it doesn't bother me at all. Serves a lot of purposes. Yeah, totally. Yeah, and I saw I had said that. To further your point, I was like one thing, one one group of people who's really benefited from this whole pandemic are the butterface community. HMM, you know, because you can look at him from a distance and be like damn, they look good, and then you never have to see it if they're facing you know, great, you can imagine a beautiful face to go along with it. Oh boy. Yeah, I'm just thinking about this now, like someone meeting someone, let's say it to bar or something, and they, you know, go home together and he's just lead them. Ask on she's like, you two don't hear me. It's this leave that you don't I don't even want to know. Yeah, I don't want to look at your social media...

...and really see your true face. I just want to keep rolling with this. Is like a fetish yeah, you know, or something a friend of mine said. Yeah, it's like it's a the big reveal can be scary sometimes. I said, yeah, now there's like two big reveals at that right. Holy Macaroni, it's for real. But yeah, I don't know, man. I again I don't want to get too lost in the weeds here about the whole pandemic and stuff, but I you know what, I'm a positive guy. I'm looking at for the SUNNYSIDE. Here are the silver lining, if you will. Yeah, man, and I found it, I really have. And if you're more phobic, fucking a, this is like spring break. Yeah, pandemic. Yeah, that's true. I mean, I was noticing that the younger generation, like Joey, my stepson, and like his friends, especially with video games, online video games and headsets and on, it's like they're pretty much immune to cabin fever. It seems like, you know, there's a there's an inherent immunity in this generation to Kevin Fever. They can sit inside all fucking day. Well, I agree with you and I don't, if you know what I mean. Okays, I also have a son and he's doing his virtual schooling as we speak, and it's a fucking nightmare, man. Yeah, and his behavior is changed. His love for school has completely been thrown out the window. Yeah, he's totally sinking into this whole being comfortable, just being fucking lazy. Yeah, like, and now if you try to make him initiate to do anything, Oh my God, it's like pulling teeth. Yeah, I know it, step son, it's same thing. He's like Joey he's like he's talking about when they go back to school and how it's starting with a couple days, half days, you know, just a couple days of the week, half day days, and then they gradually go to all week but half days, and then eventually all day. You know, it's just ramping up slowly, but just the couple days a week, partial days I go. It's only for like three hours a day for two of the days of the week, and he's like freaking out about it. To it. I'm like, Dude, you used to go all day. Do you remember last year or whatever it actually now it's, you know, yeah, basically been over a year now. Yeah, right, it has been. So I can't really blame them, but I'm like, come on, man, did you know I did all twelve years of it's some people, did you know? Yeah, some people had to stay back and do more. You know, I feel true. Yeah, but you know who I feel really bad for when I think about it. You know, I'm joking. This is a podcast having a good all is a hooda nanny. I'm having a good time, just like I love the pandemic we we by the way, that was my excitement. Noise we I was like the little piggy that went all the way home. Yes, that's me, okay, but when I think about parents who may have to work, or a single parent or somebody, and like how have you been managing virtual schooling while still trying to balance your work life? You know I mean, because you still going to pay the bills. Yeah, and then even now, like you were saying, with Joey situation, where they say, okay, you only come for half days, this day or whatever. Again, if you have work or if you don't have a support network, you know, it takes a village if you don't have those people to help you out, or babysitters or can't afford them or whatever, this is just like holy fuck. Yeah, beyond all that, I think about the kids mental development. What is going to be like? I was going to say project like ten years, but maybe even less than that. Right, like the therapy sessions I'll be required for kids, maybe even adults too, trying to rebound from all this, emotionally sure everything else. Yeah, it's bizarre. It's totally changing the dynamic and it's going to be weird to go back, but it's going to have to happen, man, and I'm lucky that Joey's already in his teens. You know, Joey's pretty self sufficient, like his his I mean, it's disruptive what's happened, but he's at least got I don't know, he's he's already old enough where he's kind of he is him, you know, he's he's Joey, he's and he still talks to his friends. And Yeah, I mean six hours a day or whatever they were at school is is a long time to just take that away. All that socialism, socialism, socialization and socialism. Yeah, man, we're on Fox News, all of them. Yeah, but anyway, I don't know, I'm just saying it's it's yeah, it's crazy, and you're talking about the effect in so many years. It's like, yeah, they're talking about kids mental health. Right now. It's definitely a an issue, but YEP, but the world is changing to they also said that that we were going to be ruined because we had video games, we had Nintendo, and before that it was like the kids had TV. And I...

...know this is different as a pandemic, but as far as like kids just interacting on social media or through computers or through screens, now everything's on screens. It's like, you know, they say that about every generation and usually it seems like things have worked out. But then again, maybe it's just a long slow decline and we are we should have been worried about the whole time. Like, you know, the generation that was worried about TV's should have been worried, and then the generation that was worried about video games should have been worried, because now this is the definition of a slippery slope. Guys, you know, this is we ended up to, where now you don't even have to leave your house to do anything. In the generation that's coming up doesn't want to. You know, Joey doesn't want to go outside to play in the snow anymore. You know are you know he didn't as a kid. He's a little older now, but it's it's just that's being bread out of people through technology and whatever. But so who knows? Who knows what's gonna Happen? Fun Social Experiment with all of humanity. Now we've talked about mostly this episode stuff that you get on the Internet, right, except for maybe your ski trip. That's the one physical thing that you can actually get out and do. But we're talking Glenn Danzig memes. That's on facebook, entertaining yourself during the pandemic. You can't get a shot in the ASS on amittative. This true too for very treaty. You can definitely a favorite cheek. Yeah, you could watch a video on a Bo getting the shots in the ASS. But or just so will masturbate to me. Hello, porn hub like this left one. But something that's been kind of bother me lately is, and I feel like it's a conspiracy that no one's paying attention to, is with streaming services. Right, yeah, what was the main appeal when they first we were big, or first coming out, like Netflix? It was that you could binge a show. Sure, there's like, okay, there's no ads, no commercials, man, you can just sit there and watch all thirteen episodes or however, man, they are in a row in your undy's eating a bag of greasy potato chips. But now they change in it back. See a lot of these shows are coming out once a week, these popular shows, the Mandalorian, one division, one division, right, I'm sure there's some more that. I'm sure very right. Now is I'm ranting, but that makes me think too. Well, how much longer until ads start creeping in into that content. Now, if you get something like Hulu and you get the basic plan, yeah, they already got that. You got to sit through some ads. Sure, there's some other channels that are the same way, and I'm like this is all, this is all return into cable man. Yeah, what they're trying to do exactly. You know. They were like gave us a taste of this freedom, this freedom of Internet entertainment. You can have it whenever you want it, stream whatever you want whenever you want. But now they're trying to limit you again, and it's it's like of those things where people aren't bothered by this. I saw an article the other day where they were championing the return of weekly episodes. Yeah, I heard the same thing where people are like Oh, it's so nice to be looking forward to Friday night again because Blah, blah, blah. And it's like wait a minute, why is it good again? I mean, I understand looking forward to shit and how exciting that can be, but like, I don't know, they're marketing it like isn't this better that? You know, yeah, he had it, you know, yeah, and we didn't like it and that's why I should streaming with so appealing. But yet again, I we're just going with a herd man and it could just be younger people who maybe didn't experience it as much. Sure, it's like a vinyl. Yeah, right here and now. I talked with my kid before and it is such a big generation gap because I'm in my early s and he's not even ten yet. When I bring up things in the past, I'll say, oh, yeah, we used to have to watch things when they were on. We were you know, you have to set up the VCR, and he's like wow, that's such a foreign concept. Right, yeah, but I guess what's old is new again. And now people like yeah, I really want to wait for things. I really want to I want to have that that suspense or that, I don't know, anticipation. Sure, I mean even fuck that, even the vinyl, like I was jokingly saying vinyl. But it's the same thing where it's like people like, look at this thing that's big and clunky and can be worn out and damaged. You know, it sounds better because all those pops and this is in the it's like a woman, and I understand. I love listening to records, but it's also like hey, I could hit a button and digitally pull up any song ever and take up no space, but for some reason I want to collect a ton of vinyl because of nostalgia. And I don't know that it's it's that worship of it's a retrophilia, racial feeling. Yes, yeah, is that a real thing? That I make that up? I think that's t shirt worthy. All right, retro Phelia. I mean, I'm sure I done. I'm just thinking...

...the whole things like a conspiracy. That's all. May It's just me. I'm like get my tinfoil on my head and I'm like, oh no, they're tricking us. Where it was all like Oh, cable cutting, we're saving money and we're getting, you know, better stuff, and now it's like no, now we're all we all have to get this plus and that plus and this new streaming service and that one, and before you know what, you pant twice as much as he did for cable. That's true. And he said gonna wait a week to see show. Yeah, now what they really going to do? That would drive me insane, is like the midseason finale. Oh my God, yeah, that would fucking Piss me off in the wind. So it's like, Oh, yeah, this is netflix original. Oh and we're going to do six episodes and your wait three months for the other whatever. I would fucking I would cancel right away. Yeah, and throw my fucking TV out the GODDAMN window. This is the point of the program where I like to thank our partners.

Try it today and you can thank me later. And now, without further ado. Let's go to the segment that we like to call nates notes. Dust up your lps. It time for nate. No, no, so it's march of two thousand and twenty one. The pandemic has been part of our lives for year. We've lost over half a million people here in the US. Our lives have been forever altered and it's been a really lonely, boring year for most of us. So, if not boring, then surely stressful and uncertain. But at the time I'm writing this, we are in a strange transitional period. We have multiple vaccines that are being administered, restaurants and other businesses are gradually reopening. Idiot red state governors are prematurely lifting mask mandates and social distancing restrictions, and that's a whole other thing. With the seasons changing in the weather warming up, it's hard not to feel optimistic butterflies, although we've been on the quote verge of opening back up for a while now and we've been through spikes and re restrictions before, so it's hard to get too excited. But if things continue as they are in innoculations continue to ramp up and we can survive the anti maskers trying to pull a George W Bush mission accomplished scenario, spiking the ball at the ten yard line. Well, there may be hope of a somewhat more normal, happy summer and fall and, for those of us who've been missing it, a blessed return to live entertainment in concerts. Bands have been posting tentative concert schedules for months that have had to be revised as the world remained closed and, as I've mentioned in other episodes, a lot of artists have done online shows for fans or otherwise socially distant events. But now when a band posts their fall two thousand and twenty one tour schedule, it actually feels worth it to buy a ticket and start getting amped up for it.

I myself have been doing some jamming with a few friends and my band has actually booked our first show in about a year, scheduled for April eighteen, so I'm arguably more psyched for that than anything else. I've got a list of songs to brush up on after not playing and forever, plus a bunch of new stuff to learn, some welcome homework, if you will. Our project, the tribe, is just that a tribe of likeminded people who just love creating and jamming together. There are far more of us than is typically needed to make up a band, but hey, the more the merrier. Sometimes only four of us may be able to make a show, or sometimes it could be eight or nine of us up. There lots of instruments, lots of variety. Needless to say, this being our first GIG and so long and the fact that it's at possibly our favorite venue, lots of the tribe answered this particular call. It's going to look like a pig face or parliament funkadelic show. Luckily it's a big place and if the weather is nice we'll be able to space out even better outside. Last thing we need is some super spreader event, but with this place is layout, I'm not really worried. So, yeah, we all worked on a list of songs to have ready. We're all hopefully practicing at home individually and if we can, it would be nice to have at least one rehearsal together before the eighteen. But I'm honestly not super worried. We've done several shows with no rehearsal at all and barely any discussion of setlists ahead of time. It's a combination of trusting oneself, trusting ones bandmates and just not getting super worried about things. It almost always works out and when it doesn't, you suck it up, get embarrassed and try to laugh it off later on. I mean, I guess it would suck if our first show back ends up a disaster. With so many people scheduled to be playing, it could potentially be a cacophonous mess, but hopefully enough of us will have practiced in polished up so it would cover up any possible weak links, so to speak. Any sour notes will get lost in the mix, but honestly, it'll just be nice to make music with a bunch of folks all in the same place. If the audience likes it, and actually if there's an audience at all, then fucking great. But to be making steps towards some sense of social normalcy feels good in itself. Entertainment may not seem that important on a surface level compared to nursing homes opening up for visits or kids going back to school, but socializing and experiencing art in a group setting are more important than we often recognize and for some of us. The act of creating something beautiful with a few friends is a luxury we didn't fully appreciate until it was taken away from us. It'll be nice to get back to it. So yeah, man, looking forward to it. Now I have a question. Okay, mentioning the tribe, your band. Yeah, you're not sure how many people will be in the audience. True, so not even sure how many people be on stage, to be honest with you, but whatever, just like one guy, like clown shoes Johnson, who's just shimmying back and forth in his Hobo clothes. You got. Well, at least somebody's enjoying it. I guess that's all that matters, right. It really is. It it as on as we get him dancing, fucking Hobo John or whatever the fuck you said. Is School with me? Now? What about social media? When you guys live stream this stuff? Get Hip with the kids, man, do all the tick talk and instagramming. I mean we could, I mean we advertise our live gigs that way, but as far as streaming something, it's it's hard to get a bunch of people to a venue, to be honest. We kind of cheat and play at a lot of venues where people would probably be there anyway. It's like it's not like playing an old hardcore show where you had to kind of promote yourself. It's like, oh, Hey, a bunch of people are drinking beer at a brewery. Cool, they they will allow us to play there, like a captive audience. Yeah, but usually they are, you know, usually we we do well enough with those crowds. We know where to play at this point. You know what kind of places. So well. I mean there's so many people hungry, of course, me being excluded right. There are so many people just dying to get out and do something. And if it's again, safe, fuck it, man. Why not? You know, yeah, do it. That's what I'm saying. I mean, I had mentioned how I have been jamming with a couple people and we do it safely. I mean we're not, we're not like I'll hold up in this tiny room, all like a couple feet from each other, like we're spread out and we're like, you know,...

...trying to face enough away from each other where we're not just spitting in each other's faces or breathing, you know, breathing each other's right, right, but and it's just a few of us and we've been kind of just getting together and improvising and just feeling how it feels to just play with another person in a room again. You know, it's been so long, but but this show that where you have booked, I mean, yeah, it's going to be a bunch of us because, like I've mentioned before, we have everything from, yeah, guitars based drums, but we have multiple people that may sing. We have violin players and mandolin players and hand drums and all kinds of different you know, it depends on who shows up, honestly, but keyboard players, whatever, multiplesure exactly. So I don't know how many people are going to make it, but we have the list of songs and we're all kind of yeah, I'll kind of we're gonna end right on and it'll be super fun. Hopefully. I think it'll be fun regardless. I hope so, I mean for your sake and then I like I said, if you have no audience, you know whatever, you guys, at least like finally doing something that resembles an activity that's normal exactly. I mean it's at a brewery and it's a big open kind of it's a brewery that on a farm where they also have like a dairy farm in an ice cream stand and they've like a barbecue spot. So it's like a big place and as long as a weather holds up we can be outside. So people will shouldn't be afraid to go. And also it has beer and barbecue and ice cream and shit. So people usually go and it's cool. They'll send the band members home with a giant growler full of beer, you know, the big jugs. Yeah, and it's yeah, it's all brewed there. It's nice. You know, it's their their own brewery and it's a great place called the stone cow brewery. I'll give them a little plug. The stone cow brewery and Barry Massachusetts. If any of our listeners are in the area on the eighteen, it would be great if you went. If not, I understand, but you know, it'll be fun. Hopefully they'll get some kind of recording of some of it and maybe I could throw it up, but on our on our facebook page. Yeah, totally, but anyway, do that, man freaking do that. I you know, the whole like gatherings of people. I haven't of course, I would be nowhere near that. But I think the most adventurous thing I've done. Yeah, it's I've gone to the Olive Garden. Yeah, oh, but I see. I figured that was safe because, like all the like, there's not even a chef. They just throw like a plate in the microwave, MMM, and bring it out to you and they like, here's your totalini. That's right. What do you like? That totallyi Gorgonzola steak. Shit, let's it's been cooked to perfection. Two minutes and twilve seconds. Yeah, the microwave. Yeah, you know. Let me tell you something, though. I was talking to a girl at work the other day about the vaccinations. MMM, and this is a reminder about how people think, because you know, we often put people in two groups, like either you're like some right wing person who's against this or whatever, your liberal or whatever right, and this girl is, yeah, she's like maybe early s okay, and she told me she doesn't want to get the vaccine because she's heard negative things about it hurting and the side effects and that she's been safe during this whole pandemic because she doesn't go. How and but mind you, the whole time she's telling me that she pulled her mass down to speak. Okay, but see to her. She's doing that. She's been doing everything to specs. You know what I mean, right. So she's like yeah, I don't need that stuff. But then I was thinking, like I even tried telling her like, don't worry because you could be asymptomatic. It's true. You know what I means. Don't worry about the vaccine side effects because you don't even know you'd have it and you could be given it to somebody else and no, no, I don't have it. I would know if I had it. I'm like, this stubbornness is absolutely insane. This is coming from a young person. Dude, I know it. It's I've heard it too. I mean there's a lot of yet just misinformation and that anti VAX shit. Like I have friends who are very liberal that are like aunts, I want to I don't want to say Anti Vax, but hesitant to get their kids vaccinated and may skip some vaccines because they think, you know, they think there's some kind of risk associated with them, when there's never been any kind of as far as vaccine your kids, there's never been any direct line shown between autism or whatever they try to blame on vaccines. But this vaccine. I mean there's been some side effects, but it's not like you've heard any life threatening things, like maybe somebody gets a little sick for a day or two and then maybe there's some soreness at the side or maybe you know this. It's it's a lot better than worrying about whether you or someone else is going to...

...die because of this. I mean they even say out right it's not a hundred percent effective, right. I mean they don't know this yet. This was all like emergency rollout in everything else. So, but it's pretty close to a hundred percent, dude. Yeah, it's pretty close. But I'm going to start my own disinformation campaign. Okay, vaccines, and I'm going to let everybody know. Let's maybe you can help me with this. Make a meme with Glenn Danzig, okay, that I got the vaccine and my penis grew exponentially. Sure, okay, an extra two and a half inches. Nice, limp, limp, wow, what do you say? We and then people, some guys out there whoa Hey, look at this, Dave's got a big schlong now, sure, and he's said he's got a penis the size of Glenn Danzig. Now, yeah, exactly beside. I feel like this is turned into our all pandemic episode. Hey, isn't life and all pandemic life at this point? It touches everything. Yeah, yeah, it does, it does. I mean, I don't know, it's just it's yeah, you're right, it's unavoidable. Yeah, I mean, this is I've said it before. These episodes are a snapshot of where we're at when we record them, and some day we can look back and say, Holy Shit, remember when we recorded about during that pandemic? Listen, O crazy that shit was. And you know, hopefully, if you listen to a lot of the right wingers, they'll tell you that, no, this is all a plot and it's never going to go back to normal. In the Liberals and the stars was want it to be this way. For some reason. You're trying to control you. They want us to wear masks forever. Yeah, we can't wait for those stimulus checks, though. Yeah, buy some red hats with them, motherfuckers. Let me tell you right now, it's right. I also got to mention because we get to get out of here. Yeah, it's we got it. We got stick go. Yeah, no, don't you get anything better to do? Yeah, Hey, it slowly. No, I mean for any longer. But if you ever want to get in touch with us on a social media it's easy. I mentioned I don't do the facebook, but nate does, seems find us over there on the on the FB. That one's facebook. That's selling out show one. MMM, because we're the best.
