Hello, hello, hello, and welcome to the selling out show where we screw up life at our leisure for your listening pleasure. We have a great one plan for you today, and Nate, my co host, nate, when we about to introduce in a moment, may have some details about a sultry massage, so stick around for that. But I am your host, David Schultz, and, as I just mentioned, I am joined by my good pal, buddy partner in crime, Nate Gore Zinski. Nate, how are you? Good, sir? I'm pretty good, man, and will relaxed. It's got back from a nice vacation. Yes, that will do it. I think everybody need the world means of vacation. I agree, man. I feel like you need a vacation. If anyone needs vacation, it's you. Well, I have one coming up and the anticipation is euphoric, which I once Wat an article. That's the big thing is a lead up to anything. Is the best part about anything. That's you know what I mean. Yeah, well, yeah, once you're there doing something, it's like Christmas, right, you can't wait to get your gifts and tear open the wrap and find out what you got. But once you actually open it, you go all right, well, that's it, that's over, sure you know? Yeah, much for all that. And I actually made a comment to my spouse, my lovely wife, the other day. I said, well, in two months our trip will be over, and she goes, who thinks like that? And I said only me, dear, only me. So, yes, but I am glad that you are back from the Colorado Mountains. We were skiing the slopes. You have down with a lingo, a my cool and my hip with the kids. Now, am I talking right? I guess so. You just said a fact. That's exactly what happened. I was skiing the slope. So if that's cool, then God damn it, you're cool. All right. Facts are good, despite what people say. Yes, facts are important. That's right. Well, other than skiing, what else did you do there or did you only ski and that's it? Well, I was there for three weeks. I think I missed maybe three days of the whole time on the mountain. Like there were only three days that I didn't go in. One of them was because I had such a nasty fall. I almost I was worried I like injured my neck and yeah, I mean I did enter. There for a second I thought you were going to say you almost died. Ah, well, I don't know. I don't want to be that dramatic, but it was. It was. It was a pretty ugly fall. So, but luckily you don't tape. I was just going to say. Luckily my brother had a go pro going at the time and we did so it was fun to watch, but it's one of those where you can watch it and pase it in mid air right as the shit's going bad and you're just like Oh, like this is when your leg first like went above your head. And Yeah, it was a was bad. Do you have any you know, inspiration to maybe put it to music or make a meme something, put it on Tick Tock? I would love to. My brother was talking about getting some kind of editing software and putting together a little a bunch of clips or shorter videos, because I want to get the video sent to me, but they're a little big file wise, you know, memory wise. So he was talking about chopping them up, and that would be great, make a little sizzle real or a little meme where I'm yeah, look, it just looks funny. I can become viral. Is that what the kids see? Talking about being cool a my cool and my viral. I think you're great. Yeah, I think you're totally cool, man. That's why we've been riends for this long. Nice, I'm I didn't think you were cool, this would probably not be the case and you would be like someone on social media that I'm like, yeah, I knew that Guy I twenty years ago and I never interact with him whatsoever. Yeah, I remember the name it's about. Is the name I remember. Wasn't cool? You ever spy on any people from the old days on your facebook? Since I don't use it, I don't know what's up with all the folks that we used to hang out with. Do you ever look at them and go look at that, he's a banker now, or Oh wow, he married a hottie or whatever. Sure, yeah,...

...that's what it's for, isn't you? Nasti like you not ask. Oh yeah, there's a kid that was in my class who is now an underwater archeologist, which I didn't even know was like a real job. I thought it was something in movies, you know, like a Indiana Jones of the sea type thing. But I think he might be, I don't know, finesse and that a little bit more than it really is, because when you say underwater archeologist to me at first I think is some dudes like pounding Miller lights on a like a crappy pontoon boat who has like a vacuum gonna. He's think, I'm sucking up the sediment to see if I can find any bloons. Yeah, he's like, I'm panning for gold. It's just some old dude, like a prospector of the beard. He's like, I'm underwater archeologist. Sure, you bunny. Here's my business card. It's really soggy? Yes, it is. It is quite soggy. Well, nate, you know you just talked about going viral with your accidents, which thankfully you're okay, because that's what makes it funny. Yeah, had you not been all right, it would have been a tragic suing and I doubt anybody, well, people, would still want to see it. But you get my drift, like you wouldn't be what it could be. The potential isn't there. But I am now, and this is my terrible leading, I'm horrible at this, by the way, but I am fully well vaccinated and I kind of throw a well in there because now, apparently, we're going to need boosters and maybe annual coping. Yes, every year, perhaps. Still, the milestone is not lost on me that finally, after a year or so of this national, Global, universal nightmare, I got two shots in my arm. Excellent, excellent. I've had a lot more than that throughout my life. But yes, but I'm about to get the vaccine myself. I'm about to start getting it this weekend. So and I get a bunch of shots in my ass, as listeners will know, when I get my monthly vivatral shot. But yeah, no stranger to those needles. For the UNINITIATED, to our humble little program they probably like wait, why did Dave just start laughing? Well, yeah, go back and make sure you check out our archive and you can hear nate stories of his past. Yeah, which happened to involve a lot of how should we put this, nate, injections. They're okay, that's perfectly fine, self medicin self medication indeed. Now, Nay, I have to tell you something else, and this also ties back into some of our previous content. Now you recommend a lot of things to me. It did, it's true, and to bed the same to me. You do the same. Not as much, probably not. You're probably, probably not. And to be to be fair, you're not the only person. A lot of people reach out to me and say, day, you got to check this out, whatever, and I try to absorb as much as humanly possible, but you know, there are times when I just have things to do in life. So there was an episode we did, I want to say not so long ago, but it's probably a while. I have this complete and utter lack of being able to grasp the concept of time. So, but still, you told me to go back and watch a show on HBO called the leftovers. Oh my God, best, my favorite show. There you go. And I have HBO Max now, is one of my streaming services. I needed to. I had it for a short bit, but then I got rid of it because they were putting out some really crappy movies. I said, what the Hell am I paying for this? Yeah, what are they? What are they doing to me here? Tom and Jerry, get the fuck out of wonder woman. One thousand nine hundred and eighty four piece of yeah, fucking Hey. So, but the good Zilla versus Kong came out and I wanted to see it. Now, this is not the best movie ever made, sure, but it was a fun movie and I enjoyed it for that alone. Now, if I took the time to think about the film, I would probably tear it to pieces. Right, but wow, looks cool. Giant gorilla fights lizard. Yay Anyway. So, since I still have HBO Max on my Roku, another name drop there. Hopefully they'll send me some money in the mail. I was going through some old series. I said, Hey, I get some time to kill. Oh wait, nate kept saying, watch the leftovers. Give it another shot, man, go back in, jump into the pool. Yeah, and I did, and I am at the end of season one. Uh Huh, Oh, you haven't even gotten to the good shit yet. That oh well, hello, Mr Mrs Spoiler. He's is, though. I remember more as I watched. I think I saw more than I initially let on when we discussed the leftovers previously. Right, I was like, okay, I remember this now, all right, I remember that, but now I'm at the end of season one. Some some new things, some newish things, are upon me, and I enjoy...

...it. I really like it, because now my my marathon mission great. Well, yes, like I tell people, look, if you can make it through season one, that's when it gets really good. Like, the thing with the leftovers is a lot of people can't make it through season one because it is very sad and kind of dark and the tone is, yeah, kind of, kind of a down. There's a lot of crying and there's a lot of like people breaking down mentally and like coping with this thing. I don't know that our listeners who haven't watched this probably could give a shit, but the point is it's a great show and you're in for a treat if you're already kind of into it, because seasons two and three are some of the best television I think I've ever seen. So for our listeners who haven't seen it, check it out. If you have seen it, watch it again, Justin through is paying me, and Damon Lynn love for paying me, to say that. See that carrying their flag backdoord checks everywhere. Man, yeah, Dude, even though you know, it is sad and it is a little bit disturbing. It's excellent, even though the first season, like you said, it is slow. There's some tough stuff to digest there. Yeah, but what I found the hardest to swallow. Uh Huh. That's a bad term for one about talk. Okay, but okay. For anybody who's seen the leftovers, like nate, you'll be able to appreciate this. Hopefully, Nora has terrible feet. The charactered Norah and the character of Lori has a very unstly mole by her arm. Guys, Dave, you excuse me, what was that when you say now, oh my God, Dave, that's me. Yeah, you, yeah, yeah, I don't know. So, like if I see a character who's got like this really gnarly mole for the rest of the season, I may be for the rest of her life, my life, I can't forget about it. Like if she pops up in a scene, I go and but she's got that raisin sticking out over there. But you've got nothing to say about Christopher ECCLESTON's face, like he's got an unsettling faced and yeah, but he's great, bust. He's Great Oh, yeah, I know. Listen, all the actors, and even the actors who portray the people I just talked about their physical shortcomings. Yeah, carry cool, great, gorgeous nor I think she's beautiful, but I don't know. Yeah, except for those feet. Yeah, I guess the feet. But yeah, she does higher prostitutes to shoot her wearing a bulletproof EST food. Dude, come on, Mr Spoiler, Rais is back and force. This show is how acentage of our listeners who have not or, like me, are weaning the our way back into it. That that did in fact happen. I'm not going to cut it out. A show as not getting edited out. You know, you're the villain. That's our listeners had years to watch this, and so did you, but luckily you're past that part. So I don't know. I'm stuck on the feet in the raisins. Yes, gets on man who scoops. Yeah, too's cur but yeah, no, I am very happy you're finally watching that. I've been trying to tell people like how like the show man. Like I said, it just keeps getting better. To you'll you'll appreciate the second season. It gets even deeper that season. The first season of that show is based off of a book, and seasons two and three we're actually like, I guess the book ends where Season One ends, but they worked with the author of the book to write the second and third season. So even though they're not based off a book, the second and third season have the blessing and even the intellectual output of the author, as opposed to like game of thrones, where when they ran out of books they were just like, well, fuck it, we can do it without the author, you know, we can keep writing the show, and then they fucked it all up. So, you know, they should have worked with George Martin for the rest of the game of thrones series and maybe that would have, you know, at least salvaged that mess of a show. You just said the blessing of or and every time I hear that Word Blessing, I think of Christmas vacation, hmm, with the guys like that blest last sing, last sing Yep. You know what this leads me to ask you one more question. It related to television. Now, I have not watched the Snyder cut of Justice League, who's also ties into Hbo Max Right. That's the reason why I didn't want them like, Whoa, what the fuck is this shit? Like, did the world need a for our fucking Justice League movie is stunked the first time? Like, I don't I don't fucking care, you know. But I've always been interested in Mulligan's right, giving a property another chance, like if they tweak something or if they made a slight adjustment that may have upset fans or me or anybody who's into the product. So if there was one television series that you could say, all right, let's just do a new director's cut, let's completely refresh it, or let's just...

...change the end of it or maybe yet again shake it up a little bit here, what would that be? Series or shore or movie or anything visit. You know what? Yeah, whatever is easiest for you to think of first. Well, what's easiest is game of thrones, because I just talked about it. My Holy Shit, like that alone like could have been solved with. All right, but if you want to know a movie, I've got a good one. I think a movie that could use a retooling would be event horizon with Laurence Fishburn and Sam Neil, science fiction horror movie from back in, you know, the late S, I think, and ninety seven it came out or something. But what about it? ORK You? You think needs to be fixed? Well, it was a very creepy had a good feel to it. It was kind of a psychological horror as opposed to like an alien monster horror. It was almost like a haunted house movie in a spaceship where people's minds were going like the ship was almost making people who lucinate. So it is this very almost shining in space. I think they could have done a better ending of event horizon. Again. View Urs of that movie will know what I'm talking about. But well, here's a follow up. Okay, because you mentioned okay, event horizon is old. Game of thrones is still in the the public consciousness. Sure, they're celebrating your ten anniversary now. They're also working on prequels. Yeah, but let's say they pulled what HBO did with Zack Snyder and the justice league and they said, Hey, guess what, we are redoing the final season. Are you all in on that? Would you tune in every Friday night, or wherever the case maybe, and watch it? Would you consume that and eagerly anticipate something like that? Would you say, Hey, I'm old school okay, when is done, is done. You did what you did. Now own it. Don't come at me with this fan service of a new ending just because people on the Internet were up in arms, myself included. I feel like, first of all, I think they'd have to go further back than just the final season to fix that show. But second of all, I think that I know I would like to see I feel like they sullied what the first few seasons with the end, so I would like to see it. I'm I personally watched the Snyder cut and I expected to hate it. I don't know why I committed to sitting there for four hours when I thought I was just going to hate it, but I gave it a shot and I was actually pleasantly surprised. I think it was the first of the Snider movies that I kind of enjoyed. You know, man of steal wasn't that bad, but the that done of justice, Superman, Batman, whatever, was horrible, and Justice League with Joss whedon directing, was horrible. Or you know, the the original theatrical cut there was horrible. So the Snyder cut actually I was entertained through pretty much the little thing. I mean it's kind of broken up in the chunks where there's like little subtitle, you know, like part to now, like it's so you can actually stop it and watch it episodically kind of if you want. It has little headings and little chapters, if you will, and so you can kind of do that. But Anyway, I'm getting off on a tangent. So I just think the DC movies are so fucked I just couldn't and plus the whole campaign for I don't like this, this thing. Everybody creates this Mass Hashtag restore the snyder cut. I forgot the fuck it was. I don't even like a campaign of it. Yeah, it's thank you. Yeah, the campaign. It's just like, come on, guys, we get better things to do with our day. I understand it's been a pandemic and people want to be entertained and they got maybe. I don't know, people spend money on stupid things to. I mean I just recently saw graded vhs tape going for like thousands of dollars or Mario brothers. Wow, you know what I mean, and I like who spend his money on this? Oh well, you know, thanks for the stimulus check. I'm going to blow it on a fucking graded VHS tape. So you know, I don't know. Like for one side I say don't Uste time, don't wet your breath your money. And then, the same token, I go well, I guess what else can people fucking do besides, I don't know, try to be a productive member society? Huh, folks, Huh. Want to try that one at least once in your fucking useless lives? Huh. We have reached the point in the program where I like to thank the partners of the show. First up we have Alpine hempcom. The CBD Revolution has a rive, that's right, and it's not too late to hop on that train. And now they have a new product that is quite amazing. I have tried it personally, called Delta Eight. Native you heard about Delta Eight? I have. It sounds fascinating. It's very potent, but they have amazing prices on a variety of CBD products. Make sure you check them out. Yet again. That's Alpine...

Hempcom, northland vaporcom, only place I get my vape supplies at. Their e juices are dike tone and artificial sweetener free. Why is this important, you may be asking. Yourself. Well, here is the answer, because you were probably a slave to big tobacco for a really, really long time and you were just ingesting every little bit of poison they were happily putting into their products. Well, no, no, that ends here. North and vaporcom the best place to get smoking cessation products now, both Alpine Hemp and Northland Vapor.

Oh my God, what have I not said about spunkloop and how much I love it and all these years? I mean, come on, I said crazy things, normal things. I'm trying to sell you on spunk Loube like insane person ranting outside of a place with a picket sign, but I'm not going to do that anymore. Hey, which I say about spunk loop? They're great and they'll make you nice and slippery for when you want to have slappy boom boom time. Wow, nate, that was that was wonderful. That was pretty think that was no, I think from now on you should do live reies. That was poetry and it was a beautiful thing. So what are you waiting for? Go to spunk loubecom today and you can thank us later. Now back to the show. Okay, so I want to tell a story, but I want to preface this with a little, I don't know, preface, I guess. Don't know. Okay, so recently in the news there was an event that happened where a psycho piece of shit was targeting Asian massage polors and you know, but hate crime shit. And Yeah, and I I just wanted to let our listeners know that and you, I guess, that this, this story in no way is meant to disrespect any one. It's not meant to be racist, it's not meant to you know, it's not meant to have anything to do with that, and it's just a sad fact that it happened around this time, because the story, I felt, was interesting enough, or at least amusing enough where you know, it's it would be a shame for me not to tell it, because it's it was just an interesting thing to happen. And so, with that being said, I just want to say before this nutbag did this shit, my girlfriend carly and I went and got a massage and, you know, it happened to be at a place where the employees were Asian. It was one of those places like in a mall. And you know, again, there's nothing I'm not saying anything about the fact that there's and it was just the cultural differences in the language barrier kind of made it somewhat interesting. And again, not trying to be disrespectful and you know so, but you have a story to I do have a story to tell here. It's okay. So, yeah, so we go to this place and of course there was, you know, a little bit of of the language barrier in trying to like assess what we wanted exactly, and because the police looked full and it looked like they had plenty of employees already working. Like they have a few booths in the back with curtains drawn, we could tell there were people in them. So we're trying to say, you know, do we have to wait or do you have more rooms somewhere? And he's you know, so there's some confusion, but it turned out what we ended up doing. The guy they's trying to lead us in the back heap. They pulled a couple cots that they had spare, like Nice. You know, there are fine cots, but they they wheeled them through their like employee break room where there was another booth in the back. First of all, that was a little weird. We're a little, you know, radically. Let me interrupt you first out. Okay, so you were already lying on the COT. No, no, no, I'm sorry, I'm there. Will get these cots were like set up in a different area and they wheeled them to the back and we followed them where they were wheeling these cots and I thought you were like laying down and they William, yeah, like a bag of fritos on their brain. It's like a Jacob's ladder scene. We're being wheeled them, exactly, all right, but I know that we followed them into this back room where they where they had wheeled these carts and cots rather, and my girlfriend's got gets pulled into this, yeah, this strange curtained massage room off the break room, like through the employees are which I already thought was a little suspect, you know what I mean? I was like, yeah, strange to have that, you know, but and we won't even charge extra for the room. So they were losing money, apparently. But anyway, the the second COT, which was mine, apparently they did. They just set it up right in the middle of that employees only break room. Basically, they it was not very clinical. It was not very I...

...don't want to say clinical, it was not very be therapeutic, like. It wasn't like I'm in some room with candles and scented this and music playing. It was like there's a fridge over there and the employees coats are hanging up and but I'm like, you know that whatever, my face is going to be down on the COT and I gotta and I have to wear a mask. Mind you, this is I'm wondering how this whole thing's going to work, like social distancing, pandemic, like massage. I figured I'm wearing a mask and I'm facing down, for the most part I should be safe. But how is it going to seem like? How how is it going to I mean, how are they going to do it? And basically they started. Yeah, I lay down on this cut and it's the first unpleasant thing is that that little hole where your face goes like, I don't know, it's a shape in my head or what it is like my jaw was like uncomfortably like jacked back the whole time like this weird yeah, I was really uncomfortable, like I just felt like my face was being pushed into it. Anytime he's like massaging my neck, he starts the whole massage by, you know, telling me get undressed, lay down, put this towel over you. So I put it over my waist like a normal massage. You know, I've had massages before. You just put over your waist, and I've seen porn massage, porn. You know. Sure. Yeah. So he comes back in the room and they're like oh no, no, and they laid the towel, this giant towel, like over my whole back like a blanket, and he starts massaging me through this towel, and I'm thinking, is this how massages are in the pandemic world? They do it through like a cloth, like a sheet, like right, like the Mormons fucking or whatever. Basically, maybe, I don't know. But so I'm wondering how we might do. We paid for an hour and a half. So part of me it's like, well, maybe, you know, just be patient. This is just part of the massage and maybe if he doesn't move on to something else in a little while you can start to question it, but you got an hour and a half. Just be patient. Makes a part of the thing. But so again, my face is down. All I can do is here and I'm getting this massage on my back and kind of not really impressed. And I just hear this little voice in my ear go good, and I'm like Oh, yeah, yeah, but it caught me off guard because I wasn't expecting it, you know, and I didn't know he was going to be asking for re encouragement, you know, you, you know, reinforcement of positive enforcement, right. So, you know, I just want to relax. I was in my mind. Wasn't even it. I was I don't know, but so, so eventually he's sacred. I'm sorry, I'm just thinking like this whole social distancing thing. Yeah, like he's massaging you through the towel. Yeah, he probably leans in with the bread here. Yeah, good. Yeah. Well, I knew it wasn't for social distancing after a while because occasionally he would like, you know, move down to my shoulder or my arm, which wasn't under the towel, and do it without a towel. So I'm like, okay, you know, he's want to go raw dog on my arms. So yeah, you know. And No, after a while he did. You know, I was patient. He did pull down the towel, reveal my naked torso and add oil. And, you know, while turning myself on this point, did Tina walk into new calass night's left over ground? It's funny you say that, man, because yeah, like I'm like, I would hear occasionally people walk through and and yeah, I swear I got I heard the microwave door at one point. I heard, you know, people come through and ask questions, whispering. It was always in like Vietnamese or whatever language they were speak. I'm I'm not sure, but I didn't understand what they're saying and it was just every so often. Yeah, the guy, the guy would just like hit me with a good and like it would always come from like a different angle. So would freak me out and like it would be like Oh shit, now he's on my left saying it, and you know, I couldn't fully relax because the whole time I'm like when is this dude going to sneak up and whisper in my ear again? And freaked me the fuck out and he's underneath the table place to Yeh, but but dude, honestly got like in the first place because they were so full when we got there. Of you know, they have so much capacity, you know, so many customers, they didn't even this. The owner that we were negotiating with initially had to like call this dude from a couple stores down, probably just somebody on break, and he was like, you know, hey, we got a customer. But but for all I know, he could have been like the the guy's cousin that worked at cinnabon this down the mall. You know, I don't know because, to be honest, just to kind of finish this stuff, the guy wasn't you know, he wasn't great. He was I was a little unimpressed. Overall, I actually feel like...

...some parts of me are almost worse off than they were when I started. And and yeah, I mean I still felt obligated to, you know, tip the guy because I'm one of these, I don't know, I'm one of these saps that's just like socially feels obligated to be even though I'm the customer paying, there's a part of me that's like, you know, Oh, I don't want him to be upset they's not getting a tip instead of you know, he should be trying to make sure. Well, to be fair, he was asking if he was good over and over again and I said it. Said No, you know really, but Oh my God, you know, it was adequate. He if he had said adequate every so often, I would have been like yeah, you know, I guess, but good was a pushing it a little. So so, yeah, matter of fact, this is a so so message. And you know that. You never asked a seny like licensing or certification. So you're right. You could just been working down at like, I don't know, Auntie Annie's or something. Yeah, pretzels, right, man was strolling up to you know, work is where's and your muscles really did. I mean it was relaxing overall, I will say, but I mean, dude, the whole thing is it's doesn't sound well, I god, I mean overall, I'm saying there was an hour and a half. You know, there was definitely moments attention that you have fear flick, somebody sneaking up on me. But but it's relaxing anytime you just kind of like lay down and you know you're being pampered, if you will. And of course it's always relaxing to have, you know, young Asian boys hands all over you. And Yeah, totally, especially when someone's five feet away from you eating their saying, you know, yeah, totally, like, dude, like for real, there's no way in hell. And I'm one of those people to a point where I just kind of like say, yeah, I'm okay, I'm okay, okay, yeah, just so it does make like the situation any worse and more uncomfortable, right, but this sounds like a goddamn nightmare. Yeah, it really does, Dude. Like, I mean, did your girlfriend have a better experience, that she actually get a legit room, or was she like in the back by the dumpsters? What's happening here? Well, I to be fair, I didn't see inside that little sex dungeon they wield her into that little office off the office room there, but she seemed happy and the point of the massage was I'd actually gotten her the massage as a gift for Valentine's Day and then I just got myself want to go along with her. But so it was basically her day, you know, and and she did enjoy herself and that was kind of the point of it. But yeah, you know, I mean I had a weird interaction and got a strange story out of it. So it is what it is. Suffered suffered as someone microwave popcorn feet from your head. Oh Man, good some yeah, I'm good. Cast some butter with that. Yeah, I mean, come on now, man, that's crazy. Yeah, Oh, you know, that's like one of those things to where s you must like afterwards. Did you ever think about leaving a review? I haven't, now that you mentioned mine, and just being like hey, I was super uncomfortable the fact that they couldn't. I mean, you bought this as a gift, right, so you want it to be special. Like you said, if your girlfriend was have actually had a good experience. That's great, but it's almost like, if you guys are overbooked, you could have told me to come back, that's true, you know, way or whatever the case may be, here, rather than wheel me into the break room. Or actually, no, we just established you weren't wheeled. You willingly want and then laid down to it was lure's robe. Lured to the break room. You were lured took off your clothes in the break room, which I mean I would think that's breaking a code. Yeah, I would think. So, here are there. Yeah, you know what I mean. But whatever it is, that whole good thing we're just freaked me the fuck out. Yeah, it was. It was strange. I'm just yeah, I'm not the type to leave bad reviews usually, but and, like I said, the whole point of the thing was was for carly. But yeah, you're right, man, I would have much rather had not been like looking down at the floor of like catch up stains or what the fuck was on the floor. Is like would have been nice to have like a sage candle, Sandal would candle going in the background or something, instead of like reheated fish in the microwave, little and yeah, something. Come on, man, holy mackam wow, I just can't get over it because, yeah, Oh, wow, yeah, well, you know what, you're a lover. Yeah, and you did something special for somebody else because you love them's right. All in all, it was a success. Dust up your lps in time for nate. No, no, no. When I was a kid in the late s early S, my family had a trailer had a campground in Rhode Island. During the hotter months, we would go there on weekends and occasionally spend a...

...week's vacation there. It was a scenic spot and really close to the ocean, specifically Misquamaic it beach, where we would spend most days before retiring back to the campground for whatever camp fires and games of hide and see or tag awaited us. My brother and I would sometimes take friends with us for the weekend and there were kids at the campground to play with us as well. It was all pretty idyllic. One thing that stands out in all my memories of those regular trips is the constant soundtrack of local Rhode Island radio station wr x. This was a classic rock station my father had found and when in Rhode Island, the dial was firmly planted at one hundred and three point seven. Classic Rock at the time referred to late s and mostly s bands, everything from cream, the zombies and Jefferson airplane to Bowie and T rex. In retrospect it tints all my memories of that time in a weird cinematic, almost sepia tone, like I'm watching an old episode of the wonder years. Although it wasn't technically the contemporary music of my youth, it was ubiquitous enough to still be a huge part of my childhood soundtrack. But at the time I was a Braddy kid and my brother and I were into more modern stuff, information, society, Deaf Leppard, faith, no more Queens Reich, Nirvana. To us, W R X was a necessary annoyance our parents music, and they had control of the dial in the car and on the beach again. I love most of that music now, but as a kid it all seemed like a relic from a time long ago, some lame old people's stuff, completely missing the fact that Ay, this was music largely written by talented, forward thinking, drugged up and decidedly unlame folks. And be it wasn't exactly ancient. Some of those songs were like ten, fifteen years old at most, but to a kid who's only like ten or twelve that's pretty damn old. As I've gotten older, I've seen trends in music come and go. Synthpop and hair metal became grunge, and alternative became new metal and skate punk became emo and mumble wrap time continues its forward March. We get older and units of times measurement seem shorter. A year seems a lot longer when you've only lived through a handful of them. So now they're in my s and I hear Pearl Jam and guns an roses on classic rock stations. It feels strange, but I realized that those acts are older now than a lot of the bands that were on w r x were when I was a kid. Shit the FOO fighters could be considered a classic rock band now, and to me there's still the drummer from Nirvana's new band. I remember when Punk Rock was this scary thing my friends mom used to listen to. She would have sex pistols and exploited records and posters of SID vicious all bloody and intimidating. It kind of scared me as a seven or eight year old kid and it certainly was more of a fringe thing despite having its time as a fashion movement in the early S. and sure the exploited still sounds a bit rough for classic rock stations, but the clash, the ramones and even the pistols have been safe enough to play on mainstream radio for years, decades even and these bands, as well as the more chaotic hardcore bands that followed, black flag, minor threat, circle jerks, etc. Have Gone from Snotty, misanthropic youth figures to elder statesman status, venerable pioneers even. I see the same thing with early electronic or industrial rock artists, from Gary Newman to skinny puppy, even Trent resner from nine inch nails, all largely misunderstood, borderline frightening artists in their beginnings, and now a bunch of respected father figures, having birthed multiple genres and inspired countless younger bands. And now you hear industrial and postpunk acts from the S and s on classic rock stations or Retro Shows. is at least even stuff from the S. There's, of course, some weird cognitive dissonance going on when these outrageous, dangerous bands I used to listen to have become safer or at least quote old school. The passage...

...of time can sting a little, but I remember being a teenager listening to stone temple, pilots and sound garden and thinking I wonder if these bands will some day get the respect that my parents generations bands got the doors and the stones, the Beatles and led Zeppelin, Sabbath and credence, clearwater revival, all huge names that stand out clearly in musical history. I wondered if and hoped that in time, my favorite bands would be recognized in a similar way. So the first time I heard STP on a classic rock station, it was bittersweet, I guess. Anyway, time continues forward. I continue to get older in the Lamer, I still seek out new bands and am constantly amazed by how much talent and innovation these youngsters have, if they would only get off my lawn. Not. But seriously, the Internet helps me find more great music than I know what to do with, and it makes it easier for us to discover all the great material that came out eons before, ancient stuff, you know, like from the early two thousands. Even now. Now, if you'll excuse me, it's time for my diper change and afternoon nap. I am so with this. It is unbelievable, because I put on a classic rock station not so long ago and they were playing sound garden, yeah, and I immediately felt like my bones had turned to Goo and my skin was nothing more than putty. Am I dead? What's going on here? This is now deemed classic rock. Good God man. Yeah, man, but, like I said, I mean it's good to know that sound garden has that kind of staying power. Like there's a lot of shitty bands like that you may not hear, you know, except on a one hit wonders show, like a ugly kid Joe Song or some stupid shit like that. You know what I mean. But Sound Guard people, you know, it's a that's a big respected band. A lot of those acts from that Seattle time, because even a lot of the stuff we grew up with really dozen. You might hear, here I go again on my own by white snake or something, but you don't hear a lot of warrant or winger the radio. That stuff hasn't really stood the test of the time. But we've got the Seattle sound like Nirvana and Pearl Jam and, yeah, all the bands that came, you know, the ones that mattered's, have stuck around. Yeah, I mean we're also talking major radio stations that you hear of call you're driving around in a car. I'm sure they must be satellite radio stations are like all winger all the time. Yeah, Goo striper guess what, you can get a striper twenty four hours a day. That's true, whatever the case may be here, you know, but I know exactly where you getting to. We're in. These songs were hits back then and now they still had that total nostalgic vibe for people right that it's just weird to know it's nostalgic, that it's actually because there's so many times, as you said, to where you think it was like five years ago, yeah, or, you know, almost ten minutes ago. I cannot believe it's been twenty years or twenty five years. It's just so we'd the same thing applies to me too, with movies, of course, where I'll see on social media someone may say hey, I'm watching forest gump for the first time, and it's some young person. I go, well, Geez, what the Hell's the matter? Where that you'd actually have a reaction video of watching forrest gump, and then it dawns on me, holy cow, it's old. Yeah, Oh my God, Dard, yeah, never mind. Looking back at some movies you don't think of that old. And then you re watch me and you're like, Holy Shit, what are they wear? And you know I mean you then you realize how old is this is. Sometimes you like wow, you know, I was out of curiosity. I googled what movie was number one at the box office when I was born. It was jaws too. Now I think it's very good sequel. A lot of people hate sequels. I guess that's not the point right now, but Josh too was okay, sequel, though. That was one of the think I think it was. Yes, I think it was very good, but I mean still, I don't even consider that old. Yeah, anyway, was forty three years ago. I don't think, Oh, jaws to is like this this ancient movie, but it is. It's unbelievable, and that you know. And then the stuff that came out when we were teenagers is just like wild man it. The other day we were texting and you made a reference to a movie we used to make fun of a lot when we were teenagers. Right, and actually took me a second to realize what the movie was. Wow, and then I go, holy cow, it's been that long. Yeah, that I nearly forgot that we would get so many giggles and laughs out of mocking shunk Sean Connery, and maybe we should reveal a little bit with this film is absolutely it was medicine man, Yep,...

...by Sean Connery, and you'd hit me with a couple classic lines from that film. Yeah, maybe you could do so now for our audience. Name. Please do your best impersonation of the Great Sir Sean Connery. I'm assuming he's knighted. If not, he's. I believe he just passed away, say hood. Yeah, oh well, there you go. So he's nighted, was knighted, he was knighted and now he's knighted and the pearly gates of whatever the fuck happens when you die. So, without further ADO, nate hit us with some Sean probably cure for the plague of the twenty century. Never lost it. I've been jole lost in thing before, doctor cocky cigarette lighter. See, I would have went sugar atte Larchah, it will sound to it, but I mean these still medicine man. I know we're laughing at this, maybe no one else. Is it? Like you guys are fucking idiots, which probably is the case half the time or most of the time that we release our shows. But like medicine man, Jeez, is that really that old to like, holy cow, I just yeah, that moves crazy, old and applicable. I mean it's it's not like quite like the situation now at the Pandit Lo that we're talking about the pandemic again somehow round. Yeah, but anyway, yeah, yeah, but yes, to get to your point, yeah, that it's an old ass movie. Dude. Outbreak is an oldest moon. I think outbreak came up after medicine man. Speaking of pandemic movies, I guess that's the only thing they have in common. HMM, the Mataba. Don't know. The Mata makes you wonder what's the fucking point all these movies got made. I mean, if you went on the street and you ask people like Hey, do you remember medicine man by Sean Conner or with starring Sean Connery, not by solely, but you get my drift, people going to be like, you know, know what the fuck you talking about? You know what I mean? All the money, all the effort that went into making this film. Oh yeah, is now loss. It's not considered a classic or worthy of anybody's time. It's not getting a reissue, it's not a steel book, it's not for K L DRA HD. No one gives a fuss up criterian collection exactly. So you know, I give no one cares. No one cares. But there was so much again, people involved, time invested, everything else. Stoner kids back of the s like me, and you just making the fact of funny, the fact that the fucking says this shit in the movie. Yeah, and now it's lost in the history of time. It's wild, you know. Well, hopefully there will be somewhere in the world another group of kids off their minds on acid or whatever, that have seen that movie and just quote it to each other to endless giggles and and whatnot. Hopefully that's happens. Will we will live forever? That's right, right, it's will be fucking the spirit of Obi Wan Kenobie or something appearing in robes. Yeah, I'm just being like, ha ha ha, it'd be. They're keeping it alive, nate. You see, that will never disappear. No, that's right. If forever live in the ether, will be there with Sean Connery and Anakin skywalker. Yeah, maybe. Like, who the fuck are you guys? Yeah, well, I am Dave. That's nate. We also selling out. You, come on, you're gonna go who? Yeah, yes, you know what we are exactly? Well, guess what this some kids on acid talking about us too. So fuck it. Yeah, well, yeah, yes, let's just enjoy when we all go fucking sit in the break room with this guy's getting a massage right now and laugh about it. How does that sound? Huh, sound good, all right, great, gooding, Sean Good, and Anakin, Anakin, I think it's real name. The Guy who played Anakin was Hayden or something. Yeah, well, the young Anakin. See, that's another thing, Bro. But are we gone? I'm sorry, where we saying? Oh, no, I don't know. Yeah, he's rambling, he and Christensen. But yeah, but that's an old asthm thing about it. The first movies are like our age, you know, they're late S, early s. But then to then the the prequels are now old. That's getting to our point. The prequels, which to me are still the Shitty, newer star wars or even though there's even newer, Shittier Star Wars movies now, but they're to me it's like the prequels aren't that old, but they are. They're fucking twenty years old. They're you know, they're fucking old. Yeah, it happens, right, this is what happens. We're young and people talked, older folks talk to us and said, Oh, you know, it's gonna go buy in a flash, you're going to blink, it's going to be over, and you're like yeah, whatever, fuck you old man. Yeah, you dumb Shit, like you don't know nothing. I don't. fucking yeah, not following your path. Right, that tread and where you walk, motherfucker, and now here we are doing the same shit. Well, the what they don't tell you is it's a it's a it's like a roller coaster. It's a slow climb upward, but at some point you hit that peek and it just starts going, goes fast, because that's holy Shit. Yeah, exactly. It's just, Oh my God, the older you get, the faster it goes. Here's a question I want to ask you, based on your piece here, what Song, if you were to hear it on Classic Radio, would make you just want to suck on some steel and to say this is it, this is over, fucking blow my brain. Oh, if I see what you mean, like a song from our youth. That, if it was like anything where you just like I...

...mean, I was thinking like imagine like, for example, Britney Spears, right, henny baby one more time was a I thought it was a fat yeah, but I mean now, I mean essentially, people would consider that a classic song. It's over a certain amount of time, right, so if it's older than ten years, fifteen years, twenty years, whatever the case may be, but it could technically be played and viewed as a classic. MMM, what song would you think if you heard it on a classic rock station while you driving around, zip around, whenever, road tripping, having a good old time, eat some beef jerky? Once you heard it, you go fuck this, I'm driving off the Goddamn road. MMM, Barbie girl, I'm again. Is that reason? Yeah, I don't know. I was actually looking for something more of a personal touch. You mean something that would frustrate me because it's like, Oh shit, that's a that's being considered old and lame, or do you mean I would make me upset, like because it's being considered a classic? You know what I mean, because now it's considered that it's hit that like that, that certain. Why don't you do this? Why don't you give me an example of what would do for you so I can see what you're getting at Um, okay, all right, or something that like to me, because you find out you don't even have one thought in you're asking me. I know, I that's how I roll, that's what I do. I host this show. I just fucking Nice spitball bro okay, but I mean like you know, the artist I love. Yeah, of course I have a special place, a little little room in my heart where they can reside. Yeah, I think personally, if I heard, for example, I think king for a day, full for a lifetime by faith in war is one of the greatest records ever produced. Great if I if I heard like ricochet, yeah, awesome songs off that record and he was playing on Classic Rock, I would probably be a little bit slighted and feel a little bit hurt because I identify that album and those tracks so much. We just being foot loose and fancy free in my youth. I could never fathom it being something that anyone else would consider. Okay, you are now officially in that file of being old fogy. Well, see, this is this is the controversy of what I was talking about, is that there's part of it that it's like, oh well, this is considered a classic now like there's there's respect given to it, and I know what you're saying, like widespread like acceptance is lame and kind of like, Oh, this is an old fogy song. But my point was less about, you know, being depressed that our songs are there. Is that paying, like I said, of hearing our music on that but it was also now I accept that the old songs I thought were laying when I was a kid are cool, you know, like it's there's a reason for some of it, I guess, but but I don't want to hear. I know what you're saying. I don't want to hear. I was going to say I don't want to hear nine inch nails at the grocery store in the background, but I but I probably have at this point. You know they'll be hearing. I want to fuck you like an animal a closer by nine snails in dentist's office or something. You know, it's I could hear that happening, but I don't know. There's a lot of ways you could look at this. STAYFE I would want to put a gun in my mouth if I heard Barbie girl being venerated as a classic. Is why I said that I get you. I understand now. I you know, I totally get it. Like if something that was, yeah, just fluff, useless shit, and it's like this is now deemed worthy right of or yeah, a contemporary classic. We're in. Someone sat there or the Illuminati is said this, this has survived, this is made it in yeah, the example of Barbie girl would be one of them. Like, what the fuck, like, for Real, someone actually wants to hear this so many years later, exactly. You know. So I understand what you're coming from. You you set me Strut. Listen, I understand who you're coming for to look at that. We're both growing, Dave. That's what it's all about. MMM. Well, my whole initial thing with sound guarden it was Black Hole Sun, Uh Huh, and I couldn't believe and that's why I was I was felt slighted and confused and disoriented and I need to sit down. Sure, sure, and have a glass of Oval team. MMM, yeah, Soothe Yours. I'm like soul. Yeah, yeah, totally. I'm like anybody. How many were? There's originals around here. Yeah, I need something to calm me down. I can't believe this is a considered now classic rock this is unbelievable. What I think, just in my mind. It has to be like s sure, because I grew up in the s in the night, right, so, right, you know, we are like the dead penguin played by Danny de Vito, being carried by penguins to his watery grave, slowly by time and watching all our music get old as we get, you know, as the procession he was voting. Yeah, you nailed my size to Oh yeah, I get that big old but that big old fucking floppy and would be any de Vito. And we're being wheeled...

...by those penguins like we get wheeled to the back of a massage parlor. Yeah, in a cot or cart or whatever the fuck you want to see. You know, I don't know. I don't know if there's anything else we want to talk we just talked about movies and music, as we do, fucking being old and crusty. But I do have to say this, because you brought up that reference. Batman returns is not a good movie really. I haven't seen a long time. That's the one with Christopher Walkin as well. Right, yes, that's the one with the penguin and Michelle Pheifer is cats really. That was the second Tim Burton Batman Film in the last timber and film, Yes, correct, before he handed off the franchise. But the thing is is people remember that movie so fondly, but if you rewatch it today it's not so hot. And I can totally get behind Batmania because, man, I was in it. Yeah, like, Dude, you fucking inject it into my veins that fucking period of time in one thousand nine hundred and eighty nine. Yeah, it was fucking magic. Yeah, but overall, if you time separates things and you look back and go man, that movie was was fucking pretty bad. Well, maybe I'll save myself an hour and a half and not watch it again. Not that I was playing a little bit. You could watch it and come back and me and be like fuck you, Dave, you're right, this is this is not Barbie girl. That's true cinematic goal. I don't know Tim Burton. I completely yeah, differing opinion. Tim Burton's did of Miss Man. You never no, yeah, he's got a sure, he's got a few gold, gold pieces, but he's got a lot to do. These two people like to give Tim Burton a lot of credit. People are like, because he did kind of like create a whole esthetic, you know, or or perfected it maybe, or whatever. But he like you know what Tim Burton movie, usually by looking at it. But but, yeah, he's got a lot of a lot of doozies. are less great movies. For for every Batman or Peewe's big adventure, there's a sleepy hollow or fucking I don't know. Slee go wasn't that bad, I guess, but there's a Barnabas Collins. What is that movie called? Dark shadows? Oh, yeah, the remake of the televisions, he's yeah, yeah, or one of those you know, Willy Wonka wasn't very good. Yes, that's perfect example, perfect example. Guys had a few doozies. But good morning, starshine, the Earth says hello. You at Jean Wilder, motherfucker. That's all. But who is? WHO IS DAVE? Nobody. Who is gene wilder? But gene wilder. True, very true, and I really think now, I think the best way to end this episode is on the note of Danny de Vito's flat, Pancakey Penguin Ass being carted off into the icy depths, just like us, our fate. So think about that people think about. If you seen the film you know exactly what I'm talking about. That fucking Nana ass. That's what it is. It's a grandmother's Mumu ass, flat ass, ass less has to lack their ass. So we leave you with assle's ass, and I am Dave that over there is nate and this has been this selling out shit. He's.
