Hello, hello, hello, and thank you for tuning into the selling out show. Or we screw up life at our leisure for your listening pleasure and expose you to infallible truths such as porn is better with the sound on. I am one of your host David Schultz, and over here by my side is my cohost with the most which may be the most overused line in podcast history, Nathan Gore Zinski. Nate, how are you, my friend? I'm great, man. Yeah, you're great. That's good to hear me, and I like that. Great is better than good. Yeah, I'm usually like I'm okay, but today now I feel all right. Man. What is it? What's in the air over there with was happening? Um, it's a sunny day. The weather's kind of getting warmer. It's March. He's the weather. So I'm it's always. I'm telling you, it really is tied in. But but no, overall, I'm doing all right. I got I got a vacation coming I'm pretty soon. So yeah, few things are going well, man. Yeah, how were things with the name? Pretty good, even though I had to write a new blues song this morning and it goes something like this. I was it feeling good. I took a covid test. MMMMMMM, it was negative, but I need my bed rest. I got the COVID blue's a negative test, but fuck it, covid blues. Thank you. Wow, thank you. That was my morning. I woke up my face completely crusty and gunky and the lung mustard is in well supplied. There's no shortage, there's no supplier supply chain issues with that. So my wife's like, you know what? The government gave us these free tests, tests. I just say that right. A said tests, let stick a. You tip up your nose. So I think that's a symptom. Yeah, yeah, you can't pronounce tests. Yeah, I can't. I can't pronounce anything to begin with. A regular listener to our humble little program might have assessed that by now. But yeah, so it's good that I'm negative for covid him. Right, I am thrice vaccinated, so I would hope even if I did have it, I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between in Covid in the regular flu. But I'm a little under the weather, but I'm a trooper and this is what I do, man, I fucking I speak to the masses and I spread my joy. So here I am. That's how I'm doing. Thank you very much. Good spread the joy, not the journey. Yeah, yeah's a fucking fluffer nutter of my love right here, people. That's what I make for you. Little Mashmellow, little peanut butter and some of my essence between two fat, thick pieces of white bread. Yeah, but Nay, I've got a story for you. I want to tell you about something that I found very bizarre, and it actually comes via my wife's Place of employment. This story does not revolve around me, but rather the folks that she has to work with. Now, as some of you well know, I live in Texas, which is a very considervative area. So a little back story here, I guess, to kind of set the scene. My wife happens to work in a dental office. Yep, that's right, she takes care of them teeth that you got rattling around in your skull. Well, considering that I've already told you that we live here. A lot of her patients or clients happened to be these Maga hat wearing Fox News addicts and when they come into the office they demand that the television is set to that channel. That's what they want to see. Their pundits just spew in there, you know, their lies over and over again. But Hey, you know, it keeps some comfy, keep some relax when they got a sharp objects in their face, I guess. But so what separates this story I'm about to tell you from any of the other days my wife works well, if none of you are aware, there is a war raging right now in the Ukraine thanks to those sons of bitches known as the so well, not the Soviet UN anymore. Yes, Russia,...

I'm still living in the S Gi Joe era, calling them the Soviet UN in the USS on. But I guess to get to the point here, because I am kind of wandering around a little bit mentally as I try to explain this whole thing, is that one of the clients was like Hey, you know, you get to put on Fox News, because I am addicted. I am hooked on this Ukraine war stuff. I can't get enough of it. I need it all the time. I love it. Now my wife is unable to say anything to a client right this rules in a medical office. You get a you know, treat people with care and kindness, her and everything else, but inside she's on fire, you know what I mean? She's seething with rage because, I mean, maybe we first hear this kind of comment, you think that's like a legit real thing happening. This isn't scripted television, this is not an episode so a faller house. There are fucking people fighting for their lives, their land, every fiber of everything they care about and are dying right now in a foreign land. But for you, for you, this is just another form of mindless entertainment. So me, I mean I suppose this is something that we should really start accepting. Is On brand in society, but I still kind of have a hard time getting over the mentality behind this, the sadistic nature of human beings in general, thinking that other people's misery purely exists for their enjoyment. Yeah, no, I'm with you, man. I mean it's that disconnect between you know, the kN whatever. The camera adds that disconnect. But it's but it's more than that actually, because if you think about it, that's sort of like the you drive by a car accident and you rubber back to the see it. You know, it's that situation is gruesome as well. But but you're right, when it's like that kind of thing of a war where, yeah, people are being killed, like being invaded by a heartless like somebody that's just purely going in there for green or whatever, you know, like leaving the cause of the war and all that like aside, the political implications and all that aside. Yeah, just the fact that, I don't know, I mean it is, as you mentioned, you're in Texas. It's the whole put on Fox News. I'm addicted to to I can't get enough of the war, but the whole thing, the the Fox News experience, is addictive. You know, most Fox and it was viewers that that we know, are the types that's like that's going to be on in the background, even if they're not actually watching the TV, it's just on. But you know what, I think I mentioned last episode that I notice that happening in myself too, but just on the other side of the spectrum. I mean I find myself getting sucked into watching more and more political, like youtube videos or podcast whatever it is. So I do understand it, but I don't know. I am I don't know if I'd use that term and and honestly, like being addicted to I can't get enough of it. I don't especially when it comes to the war like that, that subject. I'm I don't know, it's like I brace myself to see what else is going on and that war. Like I it's almost a shore to keep up with it at this church because it's so heartbreaking for me. I don't personally. It's just amazing we've been groomed in such a way where these kind of newsworthy things have become just another, you know, another ticket to the circus. I mean, when we talked about war, it's not the high speed OJ chase or something from back in the s, but all that stuff, the Gulf War in the S, I mean I could bring up the s a lot here, was kind of like a precursor to what we have today. Now. Back then we had the unscripted reality television, or at least we believe so, and shows like the real world and stuff stuff like that, an MTV. But we really, I think as a could sure started to think we need the to be on the inside track on this. We need to know what's happening and if it's going on in real time, we can tune in and essentially tune out of our own lives and just get wrapped up in something that we really have no business being involved in. And now here we are, all these years later, right, decades later, and it's only gotten bigger because, compared to that era, the S I was just citing, we have unlimited tools at our fingertips, with the Internet, mainly of course, and our, you know, ability to communicate or...

...get information so much faster. You know. I mean, yeah, definite, in many different forms. You can get it, you can get it via a cell phone or, you know, your fucking Google nest or whatever the case may be. So I just have an issue, and just like my wife did, with the cruelty of thinking that something on the scale of a war exist solely for you to forget the fact that you're overweight, your husband is a fucking dead be in, your kids hate you or whatever whatever you well, I mean seriously, right, because escapeism, for a lot of reasons, is because of something wrong in your own existence. Right, sure, I mean if your life was so fucking great, you wouldn't need to look elsewhere to do something else with your time. You be focusing on you and you will owner, I would assume. So I don't know. I don't have that problem. I just call it a problem. Yeah, making yourself tears an issue. You mentioned escapism. The funny thing, the irony is there escaping into reality shows. Are Reality TV or the war, the news? I mean it's that's a real thing happening, but it's escapism to you because you're set. You're not in it right. Yes, is happening world away, so it's not at your front door. You know, it's the same thing probably that makes us delight and Gossiping About People or whatever. You know, it's just you just kind of it's all that thing where it's like it's not happening to me. So it's entertainment. You know, right now, if the shoe is on the other foot and someone was here in America causing damage in your neighborhood and someone in the Ukraine was watching TV going Ah, this fucking American show, I love it all, this is great. Look at them fucking shoot up this guy, you'd be like you sick and twisted motherfucker out. How could you get any enjoyment out of this? What is wrong with you? You're sick. You Need Hell. But you know, here it's just accepted enemy to the point where someone will just fucking proclaim it in a dentist office. That's what they want to watch because they are addicted to it. Yeah, and and it's been that sort of steady decline from you mentioned the S, but even before that. I mean, I'm not somebody that blames violent TV or war movies or video games on, you know, like making you not you know whatever, desensitizing you, I guess I'm trying to say. But I'm not somebody that blames that. But when it comes to reality TV and it blends with US isolating and being in our homes, and it may not be the video games that are causing the violence, but it's the lifestyle of just staying inside and playing video games and not being in society and interacting with actual humans that much that makes us more detached, I think, where we can separate ourselves and lose that empathy and you know, I don't know, I feel like I wear more isolated, you know. But here's how I feel. And I'm sorry to interrupt you, but I'm doing a God damn show with Tippergore over here. What's the matter with you? Huh? And blame and video games for sedentary lifestyle. Ge. I'm not hexing. You know it's going to be easy and ice cube fuck that everything up. So now you can't maintain a healthy bank account. Is that correct sir? Now I'm not blaming the video games, I'm not even blaming the lifestyle. I'm just saying the way society has gone. I'm not saying it's good or bad, I'm just saying that's just happens to be how people are. And with the pandemic we're inside more and more too. So that's just a byproduct of the fact that that's just kind of what society does now. We don't go out as much, we don't interact and we haven't been able to in two years. So it's just kind of a similar situation too. I hate to say this again, but something I mentioned the last episode, where go back and listen to all our episodes tweet, but but just something that I said about how, now that we're starting to go back into society somewhat people are having a hard time readjusting because they've been that sort of anonymous keyboard warrior just spouting off at people without consequences for so long that now that we're going into public, a lot of people are just freaking out in public or, or, yeah, not knowing how to act towards wait staff at restaurants or whatever it is. And I know this isn't exactly what we're talking about today, but it's a similar thing where we're detached and our empathy is decreasing more and more as we isolate more and, yeah, I don't know if they're you. And then you heap on top of that just, yeah, the fact that your schedule, if you're home all day. Maybe that woman watches Fox News all day because she's home all...

...day and that just from the pandemic or will whatever, who knows what her lifestyle is, but that, like I said, that shits on all day and you kind of start to feel like something's missing when it's not the all day, because somebody needs to keep the fucking trailer tidy, nate, someone has to make sure this is fucking Nascar cups stay clean and you know, the fucking roosters stay in the front yard. I mean, come on now, I thought you were. I was going to give you Kudos that in the beginning of this you didn't make a comment about dental care, and Fox News viewers, I don't know that. Here you are doing this. Yeah, but, yeah, see, I didn't bring up people's tental care at all, I just their their lifestyles in general. So, yeah, suck motherfucker. I know that's your I and nevertently made that joke by calling up the fact that you didn't make the sure. Yeah, you know, since we're on the topic of society and just how fucked up everybody is, welcome to the selling out show. You are screwed up, Ladies and gentlemen, there is problem with each and every one of you, or there are problems. They need to be addressed. Something also big in the news, and it's been very, you know, noteworthy Ras of late, is how parents want to control books, they want to ban remember the news about banning mouse, the art spielman book. ARE GRAPHIC FEC Noza, graphic novel right, and just making sure you specified that in case our listeners don't know what that is. It's like a yeah, exactly know it is a sequential art dealing with the Holocaust. But we keep hearing stories about how a lot of these conservative areas want to ban any kind of history. I mean there's a lot of talk about the CRT right. That's been this fucking politic critical race. The yes their critical race. Theoris is talking point at every fucking I know here, like the political ads all the time, it's like we're gonna stop crt from being taught in our schools. But I've looked at my child's curriculum and I didn't see crt on it at all. But Hey, let's manufacture a crisis. That's what seems to work. But even then I don't wouldn't see an issue if it was being taught. But Alas, here we are where all these books have to be bad because maybe they remind us so of the horrors of history, or they might even talk about things that impact us in our daily lives. Now, in two thousand and twenty two, because really it feels like, and I can't speak to the rest of human history, I can only assume that. I'm sure there must have been periods like this or there's been ongoing since we first picked up a fucking I don't even know a rocking clang it against another one. But we keep feeling like our values are being challenged, our ethics are I mean just about everything, the way of life that we seemed to protect so, so deeply. So God forbid if we have a character in a book, a child's book, that may be in fact homosexual, for example. Right, we can't promote any form of anything that really happens in reality every day in any library that is operated by a school. Right. I mean, these things happen in life, whether we accept them or whether we try to shield our kids from learning about them. Whether it's the Holocaust and a book that they're and they're by the way, that graphic novel by Art Spiegelman. Just to specify a little more, it's aid yeah, graphic novel telling the story of this family's experience in the auto, well about the holocausts in general, and but it's told with mice as the characters and cats as the Nazis, and so it's it's dealt with. I mean it's it's still a harrowing story, but it's a little more it's told in a way that a kid could kind of understand it and still be shocking enough to I don't know. I don't know where I'm going with all this severity of everything right, because a little bit, yeah, about Gash Chambers and shit like that, and a lot of the horrors were translated. It was just that he made it about cats and the mice instead of human being, right, you know, and it wasn't. It wasn't for kids to begin with. No, I read that one I was like nineteen. Yeah, you know, I mean honestly, but I mean that not I didn't read it in school. I found it out a bookstore and read it when I, you know, picked it up when I was nineteen. But I just mean I appreciate it it then it's done intelligently enough to keep you interested in be educational, but it's still something that, yeah, a younger person could read. But they're taking it out. I mean, the excuse they're using is because some of the drawings might actually show, you know, a naked mouse or you know, or a naked Jewish person,...

...and so, even though it's done, I don't remember specifically if the nudity was done in like a romantic situation early in the book or if it had to do with the nudity of, you know, people in the concentration camps or whatever. I forget, but they're trying to use that as an excuse. There's some nudity in this book. So that's an example of why, and maybe a swear or two, and that's what they're using why they're banning at they actually use that as an excuse when it's like, are you sure it's just not something to do with like trying to whitewash over all the cause if it just seems a little weird. But again, the same thing you said with the children's books, like there's some book with penguins where it's like to male penguins raising a kid or whatever. It is like children's books dealing with subject matter that the parents don't want their kids to know about. But it's like it's a similar situation. Homosexuality is a thing that happens and the book is done in a hasteful way where it's I've talked to conservative people that get all up in arms about kids finding out about gay people because they're like, I don't want to have to explain sex to my kid at this age. They're too young right now, and this and that and it's like, why do you have to explain sex when you're in reference to to people in a relationship or whatever like? Did you have to do that the first time your kids saw a man and a woman all kissing or holding hands? Like you just tell the kid you know those two people are in love and if you want, you can just tell the kid that you know sometimes boys love other boys or girls love other girls. You don't have to go into like some gay sex act to explain to your kids what the hell you know homosexuality is. But the point is a lot of these people just don't. I don't know, they feel like if they ignore something, maybe they can just deny its existence and keep it out of their life somehow. But I mean, we imprint or we kind of in force our insecurities under our own children. So someone who's very uncomfortable by two penguins raising a child would probably say, and those two fucking thing with went home. It St our shrimp and that's what they did. A ball of a straw and they start a shrimping man. It's bad, real bird, I mean. But, like you said, they don't need to explain sex in a heterosexual manner. It's not like, Oh, and then he spit on our pussy and flick the being. You know? No, we just know they fucking. They just happy, they're in love, and love is the key issue here. Love is the big thing. I'm one of the people that didn't know want to talk about sexuality with my nine year old, because he's nine right, but I don't have to. We were in a situation recently where he had brought up that there was a gay couple on TV and for he was unfazed by it and he understands that sometimes men love men and women love women. But he's in that stage where, if you even said a man kissing woman is a Yak, well, that's gross because kids don't understand it, they don't get it. Then not ready for it, and that's fine. You know, just to kind of make your own point where you were trying to say, where we don't have to we don't have to go the extra mile, we don't have to give the extra embellishments. So what's going on? You know what I mean? Sure, but I think to tie this whole conversation together, is where I'm going to go with this. Rather, is that same dental hygiene repressed fucking Fox watching Twat is the same person showing up in the school board meetings who's fucking addicted to watching war on TV. But God fucking forbid to not ever challenge fucking God's fucking will of a man loving a woman by fucking putting that homosexual bullshit in fucking a school library, you know, because that that crosses a lot. I don't care if I'm watching fucking some guy dying in a ditch. That's God's will, motherfucker. That's what that is. Right there. This is Texas. fucking love it or leave it, man, you fucking love it right, because this is we were preserving this established morality that we all think we have. It doesn't fucking exist, I know. You know, I know, man. Yeah, it's it's weird. It's everyone feels like they have the moral high ground right way. Yeah, exactly, the moral high ground, you know, and I don't know. Everybody likes to, if you like Buddy, likes to feel superior and feel righteous, but I don't know, man, it's like so many of these people feel like their morals come from there, the fact that they get their morals from a religion, the bibles and that, but it's like you you know that that has to be good because it's the Bible, it's God, but try it. Telling them well, okay, well, let's involve these Muslim principles into you know, or whatever it might be like.

You know what, maybe those kids should be covering their hair or something, those female you know, those little girls, or something that makes them uncomfortable. You know, that's it's it's a similar thing. What I'm saying is like they don't realize that not everyone is Christian. Is My point. Like, so morality isn't just what's in the Bible. And I know this is a whole other can of worms, but just just a quick statement, like if you're reading, if you're saying that all your morals come from the Bible. For example, when you read the Bible, there's a lot of stuff in there that you don't do anymore, the way you don't treat women anymore, though, you're not allowed to have slaves anymore. There's all these things that the Bible says it's okay to do or commandments to do them, but we don't do them. And you know why? Because when you read that Bible, you use your own morality to say this thing in the Bible is not something that's okay now. So obviously your morality is now coming from that book if you're using some other morality to judge what's in that book. So I don't know, but I know that's a little off topic, but an easy thing to do. It's just like when you have an argument, everybody's always searching for that gray area. Is Not always black or white. For A lot of folks it's like, well, you know, yeah, this is my religious upbringing and it's the right thing. It's my religion. Is fucking what I was raised it is wholesome and it's good, so therefore it has to be correct, it has to be right and the pope would fucking agree with me. Okay, yeah, so the pope can't be wrong. I mean you can argue with the fucking pope? No, but yeah, I mean it's such a tough thing, man. That's the that's the the No. Yeah, I was going to say the Lego you step on in the mill of the night right there, because you know, you would kind of discussed about like living in bubbles and stuff where if you have a political point of view, you stick with it. You not making yourself aware of what else is being said or any other outlets that might expose you two different ideas, the idea of like debate is dead, or the concept of kind of like freeing your mind open to accept new and different ideas. There is a candidate here, for example in Texas, that was of national fame, named Beto or Rourke, and I follow them on twitter. I like Beto. I voted for him, not for president but before when he ran for Senate. Andy lost. But there was a recent outing of the current governor, Greg Abbot, and how he instructed that during our cold crisis, are cold snap, that the the utilities, the electrical companies and heating companies, were not too lower prices. They had to make them as high as possible. Now it comes to light that he gets a lot of sizeable campaign done donations from the heads, the wealthy magnates of these, you know, utility companies. So that would be the inspiration for saying hey, right now we're in crisis, everybody's fucking cranking it, but heat, you keep those prices at fucking Max. So he's tweeting all the shit out. Has Been Exposed. Okay, it's been tested that people have testified to this. The the head of her COT, which is the energy source here, has been like Greg Abbott instructed us to make it so these fucking prices are going to stay tippity top, and I'm like, Hey, man, is true, it sucks, but he's tweeting all the stuff out like incessantly, like it's going to fucking change anybody's opinion on Greg Abbott who already likes Greg Abbot? Right. No, it's not going to happen, of course, because the way that we're set up now, we have our walls, okay, and they're fucking they're just we isolate behind them with with our likeminded folks or whatever, and you cannot penetrate your ideas, your concepts, the truth even cannot penetrate our happy little cage that we created for ourselves. Of course, man. No, it's true that most of those people aren't going to change their opinion a Greg Abbot because they're not seeing that story either. They're not playing that story all over right wing media and right they're not there. They don't even know that happens. Most of them. Well, there's already a spin, there's already an excuse, a built an excuse for why this happened, you know, so exactly, and that's being, you know, fucking fed like hey, to donkeys. Yeah, I know, man, that's it's ugly, it's it's kind of the way things are going. I'm getting all stressed out because I don't like stress. Well, no, man either. And that's my point. It's like I can't help but like feel that the way things are going and how divided everything is and how everyone's in their own bubbles and not really getting the other side, and if they are, it's yeah, it's skewed or whatever. And but it's like now we're at a point where the two sides aren't it's the era of alternative facts. It's the...

...era of if you don't like something, like we were just talking about, just to ignore it, deny it exists, like you don't, you know, and and you're allowed to believe whatever you want, like again the case of election fraud, like you cannot tell people that believe that shit that there's no evidence, like there hasn't been produced any heavens, but they will say yes, there is, yes, there is, because they've been told there's heaps of evidence, even though no one's seen it. Yet. But my point is, you're allowed to believe whatever you want. And and again, like people on spreading misinformation, of getting fact checked or canceled on social media, whatever it is, they'll say, you can't cancel me for having a different opinion because I'm a right winger, and it's like, that's not why you're being canceled, you're being that's not why you're being D platformed. You're being D platformed because you are spreading stuff that's been proven to be false and it's causing people to get all fucking crazy right alive. You talked about free speech. They say free speech ends where, like my fist, when you swing my arm, my fist touches your nose. That's where my right to swing my arm, you know, ends, like you're the limit. Free speech is yelling crowd fire in a crowded theater, they always say, because it's like that, when there's not a fire, obviously, but that's now there. I don't know. They don't understand that. It's you know, I have a difference of opinion and I'm being deep platform it's like, that's not a difference of opinion. Everyone thinks that everything's just opinion. Now it's like there are, you know, real things you can check out, like the actual information is out there. Yeah, so I don't know, but my my point is just that when is this going to end, or how is it going to end, because I'm getting all nervous that there's no way, like there's two different realities everyone's living in, dude. Yeah, and it's fucking it's like how is this going to send? And in a lot and like half the people are getting ready to like cause violence and shit because they feel like they're being so disenfranchised, you know, like let mean already has happened in many cases. But you know, you know what I know? What really rubs my ribbon when talks about politics, and something I could never get over how it's just continues to go on and it's almost as if they follow the path that if you ever played PAC man like a ghost trying to like escape PAC man when he's fucking all powered up, is jerrymandering. They like we're just going to fucking change an election map. We're going to be to make it fucking so it goes up this way and that way, not together. No, no, no, no, it cannot be one centralized area or county that's responsible for for fucking taliing up these votes. No, no, we gotta. We get to go through this one and that one is like fucking just reverse GPS to create their map, because, you know what, that's where the fucking conservatives live. So now we're making that part of that Democratic County so we get more votes, I might. How does this even happen? I know, why not just fucking say, Oh, yeah, suffrage didn't exist, women can't vote anymore. I'm sorry, all you people of Color, you can't vote anymore either. Why I just do that? That's where you're going. When you fucking Jerrymander, you taking away people. It's fucking votes. You take it away. You know, the man the fucking issues that matter them most in their local community. I know, I know, it's so true. That's like, how do we there's there's too many of this political group in this area. We want to break them up. Well, we'll redistrict, because that's you know, it's not just about clumping a bunch together, it's also about splitting a bunch of them on apart so they don't have the majority. You know, it's it's just yeah, the redistricting it's it's crazy. But again, dude, there are a million things we can talk about like that. But kin know, here we good time frame, exact, you know, but I don't know, man, I wanted to bring something up that I don't know. We don't have a ton of time today, so I don't get too crazy talking. Okay, but we only number of time to do. My Nate's nose tell me this is something happy, upbeat. It's going to bring warmth and enjoyed all of our hearts. Wow, you're going to be thrilled. Nice. No, I'm honestly, it's the exact operary that. There's really nothing funny about this. Like, but I am getting together with a bunch of old friends from our youth, like a bunch. We had such a big group of friends when we were younger and sure everyone was super close and it's been forever since we've seen each other. But you know, here we are, twenty years later since I've seen any of these people. But the reason...

...that we're all getting together is not a great reason. There's one of our friends from this group a couple of years ago was actually killed. She was actually murdered. It was, you know, crazy situation. I won't go into details, but the thing is the person who was arrested for the murder is finally, after these past two years of Covid and continuing the case and everything, it's finally going to trial. It's starting this coming Monday. Okay, it's probably going to be going on while this once this episode is released. It may already be going on, but but who knows. I mean it might go on for a week, it might be a couple days, he might plead out at some point during it gets cut short, but it's it's going to be a real crazy scenario and and first of all I just wanted to bring up that. Like it's going to be weird enough going to like I went to the guy's arraignment a couple of years ago, actually sat there and saw him and whatever, but it's going to be weird being in a court room and not not not being there because I'm in trouble. You're right on trial here. No, yes, because four years just be court was just like a time to be completely panicking and worrying, and usually I was being brought in from the cell myself. You know, in church you were sweat and by yes, sweating for sure, and this time, I mean it's just it's gut churning. But for another reason. You know, I'm not anxious so much as I mean I'm at I'd be anxious that the guy something would happen. He could get off, I guess. But I mean, I, I. It's not the same feeling, you know what I mean? It's like this this other weird reason to be there. That's, you know, this horrible thing that happened. And Yeah, but so, yeah, so it's the opposite of good news to tell you a good thing to talk about. Yeah, a little bit of a Downer, it would admit, but yeah, but so it's like I've been going through a lot of like weird so, I mean I talked about the anxiety in that last little thing we were talking about about getting stressed out about the world, and now it's like this case is coming up and at the same time my doctor has been trying to decrease my anxiety mad so I'm like yeah, Dude, I'm like a basket case these past few weeks. I don't know, man, but that sucks. You're going to try to relax. I mean, is there any kind of like natural thing you can do like breathing exercises or masturbation, something to calm you down. There's always that. Yeah, and I mean, I do. I do go to therapy, which hell, all that, and I yeah, and I mean I have a healthy masturbation schedules. Going to keep that on point. Yeah, keep it tight. Yeah, but the but overall, yeah, man, I'm just kind of been anxious. But but to bring up this scenario, it's like I'm also kind of anxious because the group of us that are all going to be kind of getting together to go and support our friend who passed and support her mother, who's going to this court case, obviously, but this group of us is all planning on getting together after the court day or before, I don't know, depending on what when we all decide to get together and have something to eat, probably spend some time together, and it's it's like a the you know that it's obviously under bad circumstances, but it will be good, obviously, to see old friends, but it's also like there's the anxiety, a restful kind of last yeah, I mean the last time I saw a lot of these people, I wasn't exactly the best guy in the world. I kind of like burned some bridges way back in the day. I'm a totally different person now, obviously, but I just mean it's also just weird to see people from when you were young, like the whole thing where it's like, Holy Shit, you know, I haven't seen some of these people in twenty years. They're gonna look, I mean not even recognize. So they're old. They're all fucking old now. All these people are in their s. You Remember, I'm you know, in your mind's eye, from when they were young and, you know, full of life and supple or whatever, and now they're going to be o're all die. Yeah, exactly. Well, yeah, man, but it is weird. It's but it's very definitely it's a terri I didn't mean to interject here, but I mean it's a terrible thing to happen. But you guys seeing each other as a good thing. So you're turning a negative situation into something worthwhile positive, you know what I mean? And to support. Yeah, friend that ID been murdered. Right, absolutely, I mean it's it's just, you know, so it's a happy thing to happen that will get to see everyone for shitty reasons, but I don't know, it's still just, yeah, it's kind of weird when you're like, these are people that, yeah, we used to do all this crazy shit and go like have a few drinks and jump naked off a damn into some water and like do all this shit when we're at zero in the morning when we were, you know, eighteen years...

...old, and that we're all like bunch of us have kids and we're something. People are probably retired at this point. The Tire holy is a fucking Nice for k. They got there. They retired to age forty two or something. I know, if you I know. Wow, you know, I you know. How many people do you think are going to be an attendance for this? As far as like the old group from back you're not sure. I mean there's a thread, like a communication thread on messenger that we're all kind of HUH, touching base ahead of time, and I mean there's half a dozen to a dozen people. I don't know exactly, somewhere around there, I think, but our group was bigger than that one. Or you know, it's hug and that's the thing. I if you were I was, I would think, okay, let's say you were twenty and then you lost buddy. Yeah, how many people would show up at a wake or a funeral? Or if, right, we're nineteen and when your friends get murdered, the whole community would show up at the trial in throws to, you know, show your support for the young person. But now that we're all older, yeah, lucky if you get a handful, right. It is kind of crazy, man. Yeah, I know. When I was a kid it was kind of like a big deal of something, and you must relate to this. You were a goth kid. Yeah, maybe something you might have fantasized about, like Oh, some day when I died, they're going to treat me with respected all these people going to show up and say how they love me and tell stories about me, and it was like an important thing, right, because, yeah, you're scared about the future, you're scared about your own mortality, your own demise, but that is like a comforting way to relate it to just being like okay, well, I'll be at peace because all these people I've impacted their lives. They will show up. It's how great I was sure. Now, I mean, I would be lucky if anybody showed up. And by the thing is, I don't care. I don't give a fuck. I'm with you, man. You could I row me in a Potter's field and fucking no one says anything and it's just a my fatass body being chucked off the side of a boat. I don't care. By me, man, I've I agree with you wholeheartedly. Year. You're right. When I was young I was that Goth Kid, and I think people that are young also have an inflated sense of of Ego and think that they're just so important, so and and it's yeah, so you do. You'll fantasize about like, oh, well, if I died, imagine all the people. Yeah, you have fantasies. There was like, what was that? Tom Sawyer? Didn't Tom Sawyer have his own feeling? He was able to go to his own funeral in that book. I think, like I just remember that when I was a kid, I know, but it's yeah, you get older and you realize, yeah, I don't, I don't yet. I don't even want to have a big production when I die. And same thing. Yeah, I think a cemetery is unnecessary. I think, you know, just cremate me or something. I really don't care about leaving any marker or having I don't know. I really don't Imat don't it does he han? People can remember me from home. If this pandemic has taught me anything, they can remember me from the comfort of their own home while they're streaming their favorite television program that's right, that's all they need to do. You know, like you, like you said, I don't need I don't need a fucking fucking headstone. I don't need a place. Mere send in the pigs, send a man, let him fucking nomi apart. I don't care. I mean I'd be fucking a little grotesque. But it is weird how, like your needs and wants and perception of life in general changes. And now we're staring our own mortality, or, you know, the the end of our lives, more directly in the face they used to be. Okay, I'll worry about this in twenty years, nor that that'll concern myself with that another fifteen to thirty. Then I'll start getting a little freaked out. But now we're like whoa speaking of for one case where I would not that far off retirement. We're in our fort s. So you know, this are freaky thing. But the same time I'd be more concerned with what's going to happen to me while I'm still alive and how I going to take care of myself and make sure I'm not some old person with no fundage and I'm just fucking wandering around the town eating pocket lit and no one cares. I want to make sure I've released still fucking to kind of throw back to our last little piece, spitting on that Pussy and flicking the bean at you. Know, you said. Yeah, seventy something years old, I want to enjoy my time. I want to be fucking having a good old time. So, but then you know, when when you gone, you're gone. It doesn't matter. So it's true. Yep, that's it's about what you do when you're here. Man. I've been coming to that realization so much. Like you mentioned, fantasizing about funerals and stuff when we're younger. It's what escaped me at those points was that that means it's the end. And Yeah, like...

...and you're not even going to be there for the funerals. So why do you care? I don't know. I that sense of immortality or like looking back on things and how that doesn't get to happen. Like you, you should enjoy it while you're here, experience what you can experience. And the older I get, I'm not getting too stressed out by the idea of dying soon, you know, or soon. I just mean you took a cloth. I'm closer to sure. Yeah, but I just mean I look at it now like just experience what you can while over here, like you realize the older you get how temporary things really are, your health, your looks, you're fucking life, just any of it, like the ability to get around, the freedom of not having all these responsibilities and stuff, and I mean you get older and that stuff just kind of falls apart more and more. So take the time you have now and just try to enjoy it and don't get so worked up over stuff. See, I'm talking myself out of my anxiety. There you go. But you know, interestingly enough, you use the word ego earlier and I couldn't agree more, because I think the natural progression of things, or the way it should be in my humble opinion, is that the older you get, the less ego you have. Right, because when you're young, you think going to because rocks through, I'll be a celebrity the fucking skies a limit. Yeah, everything else, and fucking of course all these people are going to love me and of course everyone's going to fucking want to erect the statue to my my greatness. But in then, let's say that happened. How long is that statue going to last? Do you know what I mean? It's a couple hundred years maybe, and then they find out you you said something stupid on twitter and they're going to take it down. So, but no, seriously, the EGO has to go. Say It with me. Everybody, EGO has to go, has to yeah, see with me, slow it down now you go. Has To go googles to grey you go. So, yeah, but you know, I think it's time that we kind of tiptoe away from the grim reaper, quietly, with stealth, avoid the the scythe and maybe transition into something different. What do you say? Sounds Great. They okay, that was very convincing. Thank you, Nathan. That was that was like, Hey, want Spaghetti for dinner? Yeah, wait'll you hear my name's not. Oh, okay, that's what that was. All right, I was trying to, you know, use an analogy for something different, but that intent was legit very good, very well it. Let's get into nates notes in a few moments, but first I want to thank the partners of the show. First up we have northland vaporcom I am a heavy vapor I love the Vape, Oh my God, but I quit smoking thanks to vaping, also pushing the grim reaper off to the side, at least for a little while, hopefully, provided there are no pianos waiting to fall on my head. But Northland Vapor has everything you need to start your vaporing Charney or continue it. But most notably, are there e liquids which are dike tone and artificial sweetener free, which is important because when you've ape you want to be taste in the synthetic crap, the just, I mean cheese, all these companies, they just nasty. So you got to go with someone you trust, and Northland Vapor is the place to go. They also have Alpine hempcom said at many times before, I will say it again, the CBD Revolution has arrived. Name and ailment. Go ahead, I'll wait. NOPE, just kidding. I'm not going to wait, because you could literally name anything under the Sun and guess what. Alpine hemp has. What you need to treat it in cbd form, whether it's a capsule ointment even pet products. That's right, everything. You heard it here, folks. Now, both these sites, Alpine Hempcom and northern vaporcom, you can save nineteen percent off your entire order by using codes selling out nineteen, which is a pretty sweet deal. Now, under the same umbrella as northland and Alpine are death by Gummy bearscom and Wonky Weedscom. Now, CBD may not be your bag, but it may like you sell some dealt to eight and if you do, go in that direction. Now, last but not least, our pals over at spunk lube. Yes, indeed, lemon squeezy. We all have been there, where maybe a partner isn't quite in the mood but you want to get things done. This is the lube used by professionals in the adult film industry. But why let them have all the fun? Now you can have spunk lube delivered discreetly to your door, and you know what Ortis spunk today and you can thank me later. Now on to that segment we like to call well, I think it's going to be a very optimistic, happy piece this time around. Nate's notes dust up your lps. It time for nate. No, no no. As a child of the S and S,...

I grew up in a pretty momentous period and popular music. I got to witness the almost overnight paradigm shift on radio and MTV from the overproduced excess of s hair metal to the more authentic, feeling sounds of alternative music, largely spawned by the rise of the Seattle music scene. I had a few friends with whom I'd obsess over all these exciting Seattle bands, from Nirvana and Alice and chains to mother love, bone and mud honey tad and sound garden to Pearl Jam and grunt truck. There was a lot of hype around the music flowing from this rainy northwestern city, but it was well deserved hype, and I bought right in a lot of really unique voices came out of that scene. Think of how different things would have been without the voices of Eddie vetter or lane s day or Chris Cornell, not to mention my generation's biggest legend, Kurt cobain. And I don't mean voices as in their vision or creative outlook. I mean there's that too, of course, but I mean that those are some unique sounding voices in an auditory sense, powerful pipes. One more unique voice to come out of that scene was mark Lanigan of the band screaming trees. A lot of people remember them for their big hit, nearly lost you, but they've got a huge, respectable catalog of albums. Screaming trees broke up by the end of the S, but by then Mark Lanigan had started a really exciting solo career that continued for decades. He also collaborated with countless other artists and over the years he really refined his voice and his whole artistic identity into something unique. About twenty episodes back. That's episode fifty six. Are Fuddy duddy episode, if you're curious. I reviewed Lanigan's memoir sing backwards in weep. I won't rehash that whole segment here, but suffice it to say that book really resonated with me. It largely dealt with his progression into hopeless drug addiction, mainly to opiates, and to all the depths that lifestyle took him. Despite all the famous names and references to the major label recording industry, the story seemed very familiar to me, having been a strung out addict for twenty as years. I just really connected with the whole book. I first read sing backwards and weep while I was still struggling with my own demons. I'd read it dope sick on the bus going to wooster to score my heroin, or I'd read it killing time waiting to meet my dealer. Sometimes it made me feel less alone, and it was cool reading all these personal stories about the Seattle music scene, but told from a completely different angle than I was used to. Stories about scoring dope with Kurt cobain are trying to talk lane stalely from Alice and chains down from about of cocaine psychosis, complete with hallucinations of bugs crawling out of his skin. It could be a pretty harrowing read at some points, but it was compelling and spoiler alert. By the end of the story, Mark Manages to finally clean up, which was the only part I couldn't really identify with when I first read it. I'd gone to dozens of detoxes myself and dried out in a jail a bunch of times, but I'd always get out and start right back up. Lanigan watched several friends die throughout his journey and active addiction and somehow ended up being the one who made it out. Cobain killed himself stalely, and Mike Star maliceon chains, both eventually ohdeed, and there were, of course, plenty more. But mark got off the hamster wheel and just used all that pain and experience to fuel a huge body of work. He never reunited with screaming trees, but he put out album after album as a solo artist, as well as countless collaborations with others, eventually becoming a credible music legend. While back something finally clicked in my own life. After years of sickness, homelessness, imprisonment and just self disappointment, I finally just wanted to stop hurting more than I wanted to get high. It really was that simple. I'd gone to more than forty dtoxes and twenty years, but this last time I was just ready. I didn't really do anything differently, it just stuck this time and, knock on wood, it stayed stuck so far. I've...

...read Mark's memoir four times now. The last time was when I went to that last detox and finally I could relate to that feeling at the end of the book, the feeling he describes as a weight off his shoulders, a feeling of just being done, the desire being lifted. I still try to hold on to that feeling every day. Having brought Mark Lanigan, at least in book form, to that D talks with me, I decided to sort of continue on with him as a companion. I got out of treatment and started doing a real deep dive into his musical catalog. I mean, there's so much to explore. It's cool to have read his book and understand certain lyrics in a different way, references to certain people or landmarks around his town. So of course I'd been hoping to get a chance to see him live. I'd heard he's become pretty gracious to his fans and willing to talk after gigs, which is actually kind of funny after reading about his drunken, rowdy early days, when he realistically might have either puked on you or punched you in the face. Of course, in these last couple years they haven't been a lot of shows happening with the pandemic going on. Actually, I recently read that Lanigan wrote another book not too long ago about catching covid nineteen and being in and out of a coma. I have yet to read that, but will do soon. This all leads me to February twenty two. Two Thousand and twenty two. About a week ago, as I write this, there was an announcement on marks twitter account, and I quote, our beloved friend Mark Lanigan passed away this morning at his home in Killarney, Ireland, a beloved singer, songwriter, author and musician. He was fifty seven and is survived by his wife, Shelly. No other information is available at this time. We ask that everyone please respect the family's privacy. It's always weird when an artist dies because you can still hear their work. In LANIGAN's case they're probably a few hundred songs. We can still hear them on I'm still discovering stuff. Plus, as I mentioned, there's that more recent book I haven't read yet. You know, I can't help but connect him to another late musician that I loved and whose death also hit me particularly hard, the unique rapper M F doom. Doom's death was announced on New Year's Eve two thousand and twenty, right before two thousand and twenty one started, like with Lanigan's death. No cause of death was listed and also, like Lanigan, doom left us with so much material that I'm still finding new stuff over a year after his passing. Both these great artists have left us with a giant hole in their absence, but we can at least feel a good portion of it with all the work they left behind. I'll continue to celebrate them both. INSUMMATION, I'll just say that Lanigan's work has been there with me during an exciting yet uncertain period in my life. It's meant a lot to me. Having read his memoir makes me appreciate the music even more, as well as the man behind all of it. Unfortunately, it also makes his death sting a lot out more. I've essentially heard about all these personal struggles from the guy himself in his own words through his book. There's always that onesided relationship feeling with the fan artist dynamic. Of course I didn't know Lanigan personally, but I'm glad he let us all into his life with not just his music but with such a fearlessly honest memoir. I'm tempted to start reading it for the fifth time. Mey Man is right, and you cited episode Twenty Six. No, I said fifty six. Thank you. Oh us doesn't make it any better, I suppose, but I was like, I'm going to buy that book, I'm going to visit my corporate overlord Amazon and I'm going to buy that book right now. And guess what, I never did. So I'm a fucking fraud. You still care? Well, still, you know. It makes me feel bad because the guy passed away and I don't know, we don't know why he died, right, but he was, you know, by all reports, pretty young and doing well. So, I mean fifty seven, I say, is pretty young, especially after we talked about earlier. But I mean, come on now, I he said a lot of good living to do. So yeah, it's a shame. I mean I agree, except from what I read, since he died, because I was thinking the same thing. I'm like, he's not that...

...old. I mean he he lived a hard life, did a lot of you know, pain or whatever you would say. I did a lot of damage on his lyric. Yeah, I said party man, but from what I read he also had some kind of kidney issue not long ago, like a like kidney disease or something. So I don't know if that factor didn't I don't know if maybe some of it was left over from his covid diagnosis when he was in the comas I mentioned, but I don't know, they were kind of you know, that was how vague they were. You could hear the statement that I read in the piece. It was it was pretty vague. But that's why I was saying, like even when MF doom died a couple of years ago or a year a little over a year ago, it was the same thing. They just said, please respect our privacy, and they still haven't announced what happened with him. But but yeah, man, it's you know, it's just a weird thing. I mean because I had gotten so into him since I cleaned up and and there's like, yeah, one or two songs that like will still kind of make me tear up, and not for this reason, I mean from the way I felt when I finally could put the shit down and I would hear these songs that he wrote that just for some reason would hit me and I'd be like and it would actually kind of make me cry. I'd be like listening to its songs in the shower, like just feeling good because I was finally not dope sick, and like feeling good and like. But these songs would just hit me right and and I remember feeling like wow, like I love when music makes me feel this way. But I'm like it's like making me cry. And now you know some of that's like the raw honesty to I mean, I don't know if I don't know what song you're citing right now, and even if you did say what the name is of it, if you want to tell the listeners, it's fine, but I'm not familiar with it. Now. What is the name of the so called strange, strange religion, as is the song? I'm talking about him particular. But okay, but I mean you you had mentioned like the relationship from artist to fan. Right we we can interpret it anyway we want because we don't know that person personally, but in any way that you can relate something about that song, whether it's the tone of the song, the words, the lyrics, anything to what you're going through, you develop that connection to it to the point where, yeah, you might just tear up, luckily in the shower because then you just really how your tears, but you know you have that. It's like this bond, this weird bought the one way bond you know, right, but it still exists and still important. It's still sizeable, you know, it's still has wait or, as you would like to say, still palpable. Yeah, you know, to use a nate word I'm quite fond of, but it also scares me a little bit. When we just talked about we don't know how we died, because you can only speculate. But I hate the idea of having to pay the Piper for years of hard living, because I did that and I feel great. You know, I feel really good. But you always kind of wait for that other shoe to drop and go well, yeah, but you're really posted your liver or you really did some internal damage yourself for basically consuming vodka like oxygen for twenty two years. You know what I mean? Oh yeah, so I hope it wasn't that, because that just reminds a terrible reminder what I might have done myself. Man, you know. But right, you're about to read the memoir for the fifth time. I've yet to buy the book, but I I think I should. I should probably do that. I mean, you know, I think it. Appreciate it. It's a good read and it's, as I mentioned, all the little stories about these artists that you and I both grew up with and we listen to and we'd read news stories about them and we remember maybe when they died or whatever. But this is like a different side and it's almost like I had those friends with that I do these shitty things with, or like, you know, we were both dope, sick and kind of acting like scumbags and did this shit together. But you're close because of it. Like even Nope, you know, nope, full disclosure, Dave. You and I think when we were both fucked up, when we both be kind of a mess, and it was almost like some people didn't really want to talk to either of us at certain points. But but you and I were still like kind of, you know, we we were close, we were there for each other. And and hearing stories like that with land again, with like him and Lane Staley and like just weird things, or how Al Jurgensen from ministry was a complete piece of shit when they were using in in Europe together, whatever, you know, like there's just these weird stories and and I think you'd appreciate that. But it's also, yeah, like the overall arc of it where he don't know, you just it's really a good story. It's a ends positively, but it's also really rough to read in parts, but it's it's just well written to so, yeah, I recommend it and I recommend maybe, yeah, check out some of his songs. I would. I would suggest you some music, but...

I always suggest. You wait too much for me recommend from music to your links. Sender always sending me those fucking links, man. I can't keep up with one of those. I just can't. And it's even worse if the link is connected to facebook's and I don't use facebook and I well, the fuck's he sent to me this for with the hell? You know I don't like this shit, but yeah, I mean, if you get the time to do a dive, dive away, go for it, fucking you, do the nest he plunge. It's right, get up in that Shit, you know. So we'd well another great nates notes. Thanks. More death will that, you know. Yeah, but we always seem to lose our way come the end of the show, in our time. Yeah, on the show is limited. We are kind of up against it. But I do want to bring up something that's completely not only not related, but I was watching some more Hulu, okay, and I saw a documentary and it was called too funny to fail. Now this is something I recommended to you. I didn't send you a link, I just say, Hey, man, you know watch the money to fail on Hulup, and I haven't either, so you fucking tip for that. There you go, exactly, fucking rat a tat tat right back at you. But this is a documentary about the momentus failure. That was the Dana Carvey show. Oh now, I didn't realize that's what it was. Yeah, the one thousand nine hundred and ninety six show that aired on Abcne with the Clinton nipples and correct, right, that's one of them. I remember right. He'd gotten this premo time slot after home improvement and they decided the first skit on this show is going to be, yes, Bill Clinton having multiple nipples like a dog. Well know, he was feeding dogs milk. That's it. That's what the great thing about this documentary is. You don't realize how much talent was used during the show. These guys were unknowns and nobody's then, but went on to become like titans in the industry, whether it be Stephen Colbert or Steve Correll or Charlie cons well, part I know he wasn't as far as they know, or they didn't mention in the documentary, but Louis C K, Charlie coffin? Yeah, Robert smigel was the lead guy and actually, like the ambiguous Lea Gay do you duo started on that show and later, with that show, cors collapsed and failed. They moved it over to SNL, where a lot of people discovered it, because the show only ran for eight episodes, seven of which did in fact are but I love documentaries. You know, you were just kind of like saying, Hey, you going to buy this landagin book because you know it's a story I'll like, even though I've have for some reason, to slip my mind over all this time. But I love fucking documentaries. I love the gritty real life stuff. But I mean I was doubled over, nearly pissing myself in laughter watching this fucking special. This this too funny to fail. So I highly recommend it to everybody out there, if you do in fact have the Hulu, to check that out, because if you're all we got, you said to press this episode. You like, what the fuck that? Just listen through what am I dual in my life? Dave is here to save you. I am here to pick you up and thrust you into someone else's work, someone else's they crafted their content to say this will, this will cheer you up after the the Downer we just subjected you to over the last one hour and ten minutes, or whatever the case may be. So I'm just alley you being listeners, over to its happiest pastors, sending him over to a corporate giant of Hulu. You say, go, go, you don't have Hulu, subscribe to Hulu. There you go. I get no money for this. This is not like a affiliate link that you can click and I get a penny. No, kid, there's no kickbacks, no affiliation whatsoever, just something I because I watch so much TV. I've mentioned this time time is grotesque. I know you should have your own segment, like just it's just like you a one sentence about like watch this fucking show. Yeah, yeah, because this is what I've been watching, because I read a lot of comic books and I watch a lot of television and actually, before we came on air today, I was watching Free Guy, and what drew me into this movie? It is a whistle name the guy who plays Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds, is one of Ryan Reynolds vehicles. Was a lot of the locations were shot in our home base area where we had a lot of our high jinks of Worcester mass us. It's but the concept of self is very interesting because it's not something that's new. It's been trotted out and it's fairly tired, but they kind of dusted off and did something refreshing with it. And I'm going to spoil it for you now because, yeah, sorry, if you haven't seen free guy, just hit stopped, nate, you'r you got nowhere to go. I'm in for Your Inn for but it's what if an NPC character in a video game gained sentience and AI became selfaware? HMM,...

...right, HMM, which is which is always a concept I've enjoyed because we wonder. We discussed religion earlier, but we don't know where we came from. We don't know the origins of man or life for existence. But if some people may say is trippy because we create machines, but maybe we were in fact machines created by something else. We were clones of a different race that could dropped off in a planet. We're just nothing about a grand experiment. Sure, and see, he is seated by some other right organized right, or we're just dream or we're just, you know, some fantasy to matre. Yes, whatever I mean. We could go on and on that similar. Yes, that's why I was saying, like this whole idea that we exist as some you know, designs of something else is really just been done over and over again. But Free Guy did it in a fairly clever manner. Like I said, making an MPC suddenly go holy Shit, like I don't have to do these these motions, I don't have to continuously what's going on. And then when they's revealed, the West World. Yeah, yes, thank you. Westworld, which is another show I think I've talked about. I can't name the episode, like you said, episode fifty six when you talk about landing and previously. So make sure you go back, everybody, listen to every single fucking episode and you will find it. But that's a show that it you know, kind of went off the rails a little bit, but it was really good for a couple seasons there. Yeah, but yeah, free guy was wasn't half bad. So and there some laughs in there. So yet are you got me? You got me on the hook, Bro I joey will be happy because he's been wanting me to watch there for a while. But I just said no interest because I'm like, I like Ryan Reynolds, but I'm just kind of like, I don't know. He's put out a few, like just kind of a couple cheesy ones here there, and I'm just say I don't know. Actually, it's not true everyone I watch. I watched red notice recently. That wasn't too bad. I mean it was at least likable to watch with a fourteen year old kid, you know. But have you seen fifty intective Pikachu? MMM, yes, that's probably the one I'm thinking of. That was lousy. See, I don't think it was half bad, I guess. I guess again to watch with the KID. Yeah, exactly. I was. Okay, it's like, yeah, he's one of those things were it's like okay, we, like my wife would never watch it because she just naturally assumes it's just straight up pokemon movie. Yeah, my kid just see as fascinating just pokemon everything right now. But it's a different twist, right, it's a little different cake on everything. So No, I'm down for that. I don't know why I said that Shit About Ryan Reynolds. Now I feel about Ryan. If you're listening, I got nothing against you, man. You're delightful. Everyone Watch Dave Foley, of kids in the hall fame. A lot of you guys probably know him from like news radio, the Televin television, another yeah of the day refer. Yes, yes, but he car is. Ryan Reynolds owns a company called Mint Mobile. tweeted at him and it was like, Hey, I like to be one of your commercials, even though I've never tried your product. And like a day later he filmed something and they turned it into a mint mobile commercial. Yeah, so fucking quit. Isn't that something? Ay that the Shit's Huh? Wow. Well, yeah, you're just dumping a lot of information. We're dump and Shit on people as we're walking out the door on this yeah side, we're just like here here, think of this stuff too. Maybe I should have. I'm cool with I like that. I should have warm. People should listen to the show and reverse yeah, like, because they'll never some people might have been like, Oh God, this is, this is too much for me, man. Click. No, and they don't realize that the end we're all happy talking about watching some fucking Boob tube men and fucking Ryan Reynolds and Shit, you know, and that's what they wanted to hear at the onset. So, yeah, I don't know, maybe, but this way they walk out with the delightful Ryan Reynolds instead of starting that way and then getting sucked into all this death. Warn Ukraine banning books, fucking Rock Stars dieing. Oh and by the way, and Pcai characters are suddenly alive and played by a cuddly actor with a hands of living in wister man with he like the cut of his Jib. That Ryan Reynolds, let me tell you, fucking detective Pikachu, that motherfucker. You know, real quick, real quick, because I was thinking about this earlier. Okay, we're since we're on the subject to TV a little bit, and I brought up to the DINNA carvey show. Now there's a show that was canceled. I mentioned there's eight episodes, but they hacked it at seven. They like, do you even get a full season? Right? Is there a show that you seen that you were like, why the fuck didn't that get a second season or how the Hell could they canceled? That, I'm sure, but honestly, Copyr and put on the spot, I'm not going to remember well, but yeah, I'm sure I'm gonna. I'm going to say this. Everything sucks on Netflix. Was a very promising program that never got a second season and I cannot understand why. And it was basically like the wonder years or...

...the Goldbergs in the S, where this kid was like fascinated with making home movies and stuff and it's just about him and his friends living in this small town growing up in the early S, and it was nostalgia based and fucking had a good cast and it was entertaining and funny, a lot of good gags in their head a little sex thrown into little little salt and pepper and a sex so banned in Texas, right, but I mean, as far as I know you can still stream. It was a Netflix original program and the soundtrack was fucking awesome, of course, being all s music, and then just poof up. Well, we're not renewing that. So no one watched it. So maybe everybody if you watch it now and get it into like they're fucking top ten or something, because that's why this would fans do now, like they campaign, like if a show gets canceled? Yes, like those crazy snyder nuts with the the justice league. Release the Snider Cut, like the world needed that so bad. I I'll never get over worship. But arrest of the development, even that was as far back as that. They made new episodes and new, you know, a new season, because fans demand for it was so much. But now it's like anything. It's like anything can be, can't. Oh, we're going to revive gonna bring it back. How dare you? Can'cel our favorite show since two people who fucking Oshkosh. Yeah, but everything sucks. It'd be when I was trying to allude to. Would be great if they give it a second season now, because it came out like four years ago, so all the teen actors to be old or so they could just be like he was that movie the State did, hot, wet American summer, yeah, or something like that. Wet Hot, sorry, my yeah, but you know, and they play teenagers even though they were their S. be like that kind of thing. But now I guess that's all I got to say about that. We gotta go just quickly. Wet, hot American summer. The second one was a Prequel, so they were playing the characters when they were younger, but all the actors were wailed. So, as you entertaining, love like l lovely. I love him right. All right. Well, I think that's enough for this this time around. You got a vacation to go to. I actually have a vacation as well coming up also. I'LL BE IN SAN ANTONIO.
