How does one frame a masterpiece?If it's a painting, some wood and gold leaf will do. But whatabout a masterpiece of the edible variety, like boar's head? Up and goTurkey, crafted from a family recipe, seasoned with savory spices and then slowroasted until its fork tender and brimming would flavor. So what could frame sucha masterpiece? Perhaps a little bread would do. Boar's head compromise elsewhere.Me a dip of infirmary media. You were now too dead to the sellingout odcast. What it does is breaches into your brain chemically cage your happiestmemory, chemically blocks that emotion chemically, and then it keeps your happy happy. Hello, hello, hello, and welcome to the selling out show.I am one of your host, David Shoultz, and by my side andmy partnering crime, is Mr Nate Gore Zinski. Nate, how the HeckAre you? I'm good. I had I had some lastminute rescue mission topull to get my horses inside. It started pouring rain. Dave and Imanaged to get there, clean their stalls in record time and get them insidebefore they got soaked. So I'm feeling positive and like like a superman forevst on it. And amazing, because horses survive for how many years onthis earth and they got wet all the fucking time. How did they doit without me? How do they live it? How do they do it? They're so fucking pampered. You're going to clean their stall and usher theminside before a drop of water hit their heads. That's right, man.Well, ask my girlfriend and she'll tell you that's the case. So Yang, she's the boss. Yeah, where she wants goes. But I gotto point out something very interesting about this recording session today is that we arerecording remotely and you are in your childhood bedroom right now. Yeah, Isee you on the skype as we are skiping in with each other, andI think it's very trippy to peer into that, because there's a lot ofnights I passed out in that room completely hammered. Yeah, and now itlooks like a lovely room fit for, I don't know, an actual childor yeah, or something is a little small. I mean the to fillin our listeners. We're recording during the day today because that's when we havetime to do it, and my girlfriend is at home working from home,so things get a little loud there, so we needed some quiet. Somy folks, my parents, were Nice enough to let me come record inmy old bedroom. So it is bizarre. It's I'm in this strange little roomwhere I don't know, lots of memories and it definitely seems a bitsmaller. Know that I'm forty years old sitting in this room. But well, I've never had like one place of residence my entire life to, youknow, go home to right. So iwous think it's fascinating when you know, you grow up, you move out and then your parents decide to redecoratethe room right and like for you right now, me peering in here,looks like a guess room. It's Nice, but you even have like a littleteddy bear there, yeah, which must be your mom's touch to makeit. You know, I don't know more countries. I don't even knowwhat kind of style you call. What you know necessitates a teddy bear,like it's a welcoming thing. Yeah, I suppose so it's he's inviting.Maybe there's some weird nanny cam and they can spy on whoever comes in here. And you know, I mean to be honest this. Yeah, that'sfine on me while I'm coming this. Yeah, I mean, I couldn'teven get the whole like motif out of my mouth about the teddy bear.I don't even understand the esthetic. But the nanny cam would make sense,sure. But truth be told, this teddy bear has been around forever.I think my mother got this bear when my brother was a little, littlekid, if if not longer than that. She's I'm not sure exactly, butit's at least I would say forty three, forty four years old,so it's antique. Yeah, well then, if that's the case, I wouldsuggest that you stopped humping it, which you're doing right now on camera, and that's disgusting. Hey, that's...

...private. It's private and I dohave one bone to pick with you before we continue with the show, whichwe do have a great win plan for all you listeners out there, Idid want to thank you for tuning in, is that I keep recommending things toyou on Netflix and you're not watching them. I watch some of them, and which ones did you watch? Well, which ones did you well, regular, there we go. I kept telling you gotta, you gotto see the OA. I know I need to see that. The Oway it just got canceled prior to season three, unfortunately, but I stillswear by season one being some of the best television I've ever watched. Right. Season two was a little spaghetti against the wall. Ask for me.It was still good. Yeah, I think I suggested glow for you,as I've watched glow. Oh, you have. Okay, I'm addicted toglow. I was just actually watching that before we started recording today. Iwas finishing up season three. MMM, we're just kind of bear some someMark Mare and you know I've been yeah and his forever. He's your dudeand he's fucking excellent on that show. Top Notch. I like his cranky. It's cranky demeanors right up my alley. I was going to say it wasembarrassing too, because I was eating Chili while watching glow and I wasso into the show I like looked up and Chili just fell on me andlike yeah, everywhere, and I didn't stop to clean myself right away.I was like, I'm just going to keep hutching the shot, I'll beup in a few minutes. So there's the life that I live. AndI can't remember what else I recommended for you, but, oh well,you see the most recent stranger things right that? You're right. I havenot watched that. I still have not watched the most recent season. Well, you go, take the fucking teddy bear downstairs. Yeah, get somepopcorn ready and fucking watch the NETFLIX will. Yes, I was thinking of startinga business or a create like a life path and a vocation. Greatwill where? Yeah, man, it's I'm telling you, big money.I can do this. I'm gonna either become some kind of like an exorcistor a priest or some kind of wait, what shit occupation? I don't believeit, Dude. I'm telling you. Okay, all right, continue.This sounds like the last thing that that anyone think would expect me becauseI'm such a vocal atheioskeptic whatever. But I'm telling you, man, Ifeel like it's an easy enough job that I could fake, like I knowall the lingo. I watching a shit and I have my history of churchesand whatnot as a kid, where I feel like I could, I couldfool the types of consumers and believers, you know, into giving me theirmoney. Yeah, but you're signs shit a little bit low, because anexorcist, you don't really see those in the yellow pages. Yeah, apriest isn't like it, you know, a big prestige kind of position.You know what I mean? It's not like you're, you know, inthe table. I guess you could be if you were fucking molesting kids,but at the same time, Whoa well, you know, which seems to bethe trend right. Trying to say to you was it's not like hey, father, father, Jimmy, over there, he's a what happened incat like? Yeah, wait to see what was up with him Saturday night. You know. Yeah, not exactly a get rich quicks. There wego. That's why I was trying to say money. It's but, bhayman, yeah, if I become some kind of a rich super pastor oneof these joelas, Austin Osten, whatever, one of these dudes, I could, I could maybe pull that off, because, dude, it's like it'sit can be big money. And the funny thing is, right,if you're worried that maybe, by saying this on this podcast, I'm ruiningmy chances of doing this. Well, look at l Ron Hubbard, thefounder of Scientology. You know, sure he yeah, dude, this dudewas the most prolific at the time. I may still be author of BullshitScience. It's fiction, like crazy, far out wacky science fiction stories.And he was on record as saying, while being a science fiction writer,if you do this is okay, the science fiction racket, but if youwant to make real money, you got to start a religion. Well,there you go. Yes, that's what you mean. You talk about exorcisterpriests. Know, you want to start your own fucking movement here. Buddy, there you go. Maybe that's it. See this why I need you.Yes, you can be my main man, Pr Shit. Yeah,you know, I was going to say the fake it till you make itkind of careers, right, anything that you can just kind of like fraudentlybe something. Yeah, yeah, so you're saying start your own religion.Check, I get that. One Country Western singer that would work too,because those fucking guys, come on now, anybody can put on a pair ofcowboy boots and sing about fucking how lonely it is at the Goddamn Rodeo. Right, yeah, what about some other ones? Can you think anyother ones off the top of your head? Man, I I don't know,Dude. I I'm focusing on this one because, okay, I think, Dude. I'm telling you that because I think it could even work inmy favor that I have been such a...

...vocal atheist and skeptic type. Becauselook, imagine, Dude, imagine the redemption story like that. Would sellit even more, like this huge nonbeliever that talks so much shit about it. Look at my social media. I'm talking about like all this anti relationship. If I had my, quote unquote, come to Jesus moment, dude,that would be fucking huge, so crazy. He told me to turnaround get behind Miss Satan neg yeah, I can see, you're right.That's like a fucking I'll complete seller there people, because people just believe anything. We live in, absolutely live in a culture that, like our newye, comes from memes. Yep. So you could just tomorrow fucking plays, they say, like in wrestling, Turn Heel yeah, on atheism,and they're going to think you're the next fucking Jimmy Jim Baker. Yes,dude. And before I get off this, I I want to say that whenI'm come thinking of these ideas for this show, I'll often use myphone as a little handheld microphone recorder. Thing, like a note to self. Yeah, you know, and when I said the word exorcist, itcame up eggs or CIST, like cys tcher assist. Yeah, so,yeah, that's kind of apparently even my phone does not accept the validity ofsuch a bullshit occupation. They're like exorcist. That does not compute. I'M A, I'M A, I'm an exorcist every time I make scrambled eggs.Yeah, Yeahs, shall you evil little fucking yoke, get out they Iwant to give you a hot take. Okay, are you ready for this? You get your buns covered because it might burn your breeches. Yeah,I want to take your hot tape. All right, it's a hot tenfor you. Is that? With all the talk now about guns, youknow my feeling on guns. I say ban all of my donat give afuck what I we don't come on guns. Fuck guns, thank you very much. But the whole thing with gun control legislation, everybody, the politicians, you know, their pockets are lying with NRA money. So they wantto talk about background checks, background checks, which to me seems like a flawin itself in a terrible way. To start, because background checks reallyonly flag anybody if they've already committed a crime or some sort of active violenceor if they've sought help for potentially having some mental issues. Right. Soif you get a clean slate, if you're a first time nut job,you're still good to go to get your gun. Right. Second thing throughall these crimes are these mass shootings and everything are being performed by these assaultrifles. Right. Yeah, that's right. So what kind of fucking lunatic wouldfill out a form to buy an assault rifle? That should be aclue right there. That's like jars of Piss in your house, pieces oflike, I don't know, other people's hair, you know, just completefucking utter nut baggery. Right in the moment that you start that application foran assault rifle, boom denied. Yes, there's a red flag. Just orderingthe the gun itself, trying to get up the gun is a redflag on itself, like buying Sushi at a gas station. You know rightthere, you know it's wrong. Don't, don't let them have it right.No, seriously, that, if you work at a gas station andyou let someone buy the Sushi is a special place in Hell for you,my friend. Don't let him do. Don't let them buy the gas stationSushi. Same thing with all these assault rifles. Like I said again,for me, band the motherfuckers, but talking about any kind of legislation that'sjust pushing forward. Just the whole background check thing is a fucking fatal flawin itself and everybody should be dragged by horses, maybe your horses, becausenow they're dry, through the streets and punished for even bringing this up.Let's just band the fucking things.

I had recently discovered, or found out, that someone veryclose to me has a terminal illness and, as hard as this isto process and deal with in itself,...

...especially because of the again I mentionedhow close they are, I don't really want to say right now on airwho it is, but you can just kind of imagine who it could be. Anyway, my whole thing was when you find out someone that you loveis going to lose their life, they're going to have to battle a littlebit, but no matter what they do, that's it is. You have timeto deal with your grief while a person still alive well, and inmany ways that's you have the ability to say goodbye, say what you needto say or resolve any issues that you might have with that person before thatday finally comes. Now, in my case, when I was talking tothat person on the phone recently, I they had informed me that there wereno more treatments to be had. This was the next stage. They're goingto do this and then it was going to be hospice, and that wasall. I lost my shit. I started bawling like a baby on thephone, and I maybe it's my nature, maybe it's just the way I livemy life, but the first thing I started to do profusely, wasapologize for basically the Cretan that I've been my entire life and how they deservedbetter. Yeah, then, what I provided for them, especially in comparisonto what I received. Yeah. Now, in many cases, and especially withme, when I've lost someone in the past, it's been sudden,it's been fast. You know, if you had any regrets about how youyour relationship went with that person? Yeah, you kind of had to process themafterwards, but over time you iron them out, or at least again, I have you come to a place of piece with the whole situation.Sure, but now I'm an uncharted territory with this whole timetable scenario. Andplus again, you want to release all your emotions and let that person knowexactly how you feel, but at the same time you've got to realize thatthey're dealing with a lot. They're facing their own mortality head on, ofcourse, and as much as they probably appreciate you know, me apologizing sayingthese things. Yeah, it's a little heavy of a topic when maybe theywant the distraction of talking about everyday things. Sure they don't want to be confrontedwith all this like a tsunami at their doorstep. It's like I almostfeel like it's nowhere. Never I've got a fucking say this shit. I'vegot to let it run out of my face with these tears. Yeah,I don't know if it's the right thing to do the wrong thing to do, but I'm heartbroken over the whole scenario situation. Yeah, but again,this is life. It happens to everybody every day and I'm still going throughthe whole process of it and trying to it's hard. It's not always real, right, right, you know, I can't even imagine, and Imean, as you said, it's it's kind of I don't like using theword, but it's kind of a blessing to be able to have this opportunityto say what you want to say. I don't know, man, Iwell, I mean, Nay, a lot of people wish kind of youknow, I understand a lot of people say if I only had one moreday, hmm, you know, to say or spend time with that person, what I would do, how I approached it, and for me it'slike that's that's a lot. You know I mean, because I was talkingabout now, possibly the span of a few short months or so, giveor take, and it's like it's just so it's just so fucking ridiculous tome that I can't do anything, I'm powerless to help that person. Yeah, and I don't want to sound like a fucking, I don't know,ungrateful son of a bitch, because there's so many people out there even listeningright now. We've probably been through a similar situation. But again, itwas easier for me dealing with regret after a loss. I mean, Iremember my grandmother in particular. I had a lot of she died in atragic fashion due to complications from a car accident. We didn't expect her todie. In just one day she was gone and afterwards I'm like, Ohmy God, I wish I could have said I'm sorry for this, whereI didn't mean that, and just give her a hug, a big oldfucking hug, and say I love you. You know. Yeah, but howabout you? Have you ever been in the situation where you lost somebodyand use went. If I only had said this one fucking thing, itwould be me feel better about, you know, just basically having to saygoodbye to that person. Man. I mean I've the older we get,the more and more people we do lose, and it's it's a sad fact oflife. But yeah, I mean there's definitely good friends that I wishI had let know how much they really meant to me and things that Iwish I could have apologized for. Maybe I'm thinking of certain specific scenarios where, yeah, maybe I was in a bad spot in my life, soI wasn't the best friend and Tim Yeah, by the time that friend passed away, I really wish I had said...

...more and apologized or tried to makethings right. But yeah, I this probably, I would say, there'stoo many to count. As far as things I wish I had more timewith friends and family members who've passed. But that's a heavy, heavy subject, man, and well, I wanted to bring it up today because Itry to be as honest as humanly possible with anybody who listens to the show. That's what the show is about, is we kind of want to layour lives out there, the good, the bad, the ugly. Youknow, here's moments that you know, I'm vulnerable right now, I reallyam. You're opening yourself up emotionally and but that's what we that what's thepoint if we're not gone? Yes, we could do a silly, littlefunny show that that's good for a laugh, and we do that. We welike to have a laugh. But am right, I do, Yeh, man, but let's let's be real, and I know neither of us haveshied away from some of the grittier stuff in our past or our feelingsand emotions. And so, yeah, I appreciate you, you being honestand talking about this stuff, man, because that's the best thing for you. You know you need to talk about stuff. And Yeah, I actuallywant to appeal to the audience at large here. If you're listening to thisshow, let me know how you've had to deal with us or how youwould deal with something like this. You know, reach out to me andnate and let us know at selling out show, at GMAILCOM, on twitterat selling out show or on facebook at selling out show. One. Ireally want to know what is the best coping mechanism, and really it's noteven the best. It's just I just want to hear more stories about it, because I can go online. I could fucking read until my eyes startto bleed, you know I mean. But it's kind of better to hearit from from people, especially people that might, you know, actually likemy fucking showy. Yeah, you know I mean. That'd be that'd bean added bonus, but I would appreciate the hell out of that. Soto bring things around to maybe a happier memory some please. Yeah, yetmy mind out of his funk? Yeah, well, one of the happiest periodsof my life I remember was, in general that age of I wouldsay from ten grade ish that that probably till senior year. Those were somegreat years and I still can't explain how this happened, but we would havethe foreign language trip in my high school where they would bring a select howevermany kids on a trip to Europe. You had to pay for it.Obviously your family right throws throws in the Moulah, but it was at adiscount because so many kids were going and they called it an educational trip,and it was to an extent. But they bring you to to Europe andsometimes to Mexico and it was a great experience and I was fortunate enough togo to to two different trips, my junior and my senior year, andthe one I want to talk about specifically is my junior year high school.They brought us to France, we stopped in Belgium briefly and we ended upin Germany, in Berlin. But in the middle of that trip we spentI would say, about three days in Amsterdam in, yeah, yeah,Hollands, and our hotel was in Rotterdam, but we spent all the days walkingaround Amsterdam. And I tell you, man, back in those days Americawas still far more draconian in their point of view on marijuana, ofcourse. So imagine bringing a bunch of kids and to no to Amsterdam atthat age, late teens, and they would take us, we'd maybe havea guided tour for the first hour to couple hours of our day walking aroundAmsterdam. Then they would say, okay, this area over here is what's knownas the Red Light District, the fabled Red Light District of Amsterdam.So anyway, kids, meet us back at this area in about and havethree hours. I wouldn't even want a chaperone kid. It's like now tolike the local museum, let alone to Europe. Yeah, and the RedLight fucking district, to holy cow, yeah, man, and we tookfull advantage. I mean they're a good portion of the kids that went.Of course we're wellbehaved, probably never try to drug in their life. Inwe're we're model citizens, little kids, yeah, teenagers rather, but therewere select few of us, you know,...

...and there was me. Yeah,man, right, we were participating in the local culture. That's howI looked at it, right, we totally mix it with the local sure. Yeah, man. So, as I mentioned, there were a handfulof us. I would say they were about maybe six or seven of usthat all totally and enjoyed party and together. We had this beautiful hotel where witha sliding door that opened up onto a giant body of water and therewere sailboats and all this. It was a beautiful, picturesque thing to walkout your door and see. But a few of US had purchased over thecounter mind you had a we went to some head shop looking for, yeah, whatever we could find, and we noticed they were selling legal philocybe andmushrooms PS. I like mushrooms and man, Dude. So we purchased, howevermany grams of of the shrooms, and I will say they were someof the best mushrooms I've ever had. I mean, obviously they were cultivatedin an industrial fashion. It wasn't like somebody just grown shrooms in their basement. By the time we got back to our hotel room and decided to partyfor the night, this shit was kicking in, the shrooms were kicking inand man, we had such a good time. I mean the first ofall, where we're still new in the town, so we're rolling a joint, we're starting to trip, and where we're out on the back porch andwe're being quiet, trying to like whispering and being all nervous, and thenour friend Jenny, all of a sudden, I remember, looking at us andsaying, guys, it's legal, and that feeling of you're tripping inyour kind of anxious and all of a sudden all that weight was lifted offyour shoulders, like Oh yeah, fun enough to be nervous. Yeah,so that in itself was joy do something. Yeah, you know, but Itell you, the one memory that really strikes me more than any isthat we had these really friendly ducks, these big ass ducks walking around outsideof our sliding door. Like I said, we're on a body of water,so I'm talking these ducks with they were like they may have even beengeese. They were big ass freaking water fowl, whatever they were, andone of them was getting real friendly. Would come right up to you.is almost like the people that stayed in the hotel often would feed these animals, because they would come right up to you. And we're all tripping laughingour asses off at these friendly ducks. And I remember at one point I'msmoking a button. I'm like, what does he want? My Cigarette?He keeps coming up to me. Well, and so all I have as acigarette. So I hold the cigarette out towards him, filter and first, like you know, here you want to puff. The freaking duck grabsthe cigarette out of my hand and it it's stayed in its beak as thoughhe was walking around smoking. Nowhere to a lie. This fucking duck walkedaround Garn right, right and as he would, the cigarette, which iskind of hanging on to his beak, would kind of like mark and itwould almost looked like he was puffing smoke. So you know, okay, theweirdest sh it always happens when you tripping. So yeah, we ifit was even real. You meant Howard the duck, and you gave hima smoke. Yeah, I could have all been just a crazy hallucination.Yeah, like you, you remember, this is a fun memory, butmaybe none of it was real. Yeah, smoking large water fowl. And ifit was really, you probably gave the damn thing fucking, you know, Lung, fucking Emphysyma or something. So she you. I know Peteis going to be able to get me for that one. But but yeah, man, the whole the whole time was a great experience and I'm gladI got to do it. I've been I'll say it again, I've beenblessed in my life to have some great experiences. Have Been Really Lucky andI had a great family. So I will, I will look back andappreciate that Shit. But yeah, man, if anyone gets a chance, Imean now the the allure has kind of worn off a tad because ofAmerica's gradually, you know, lessening, loosening up. Yeah, okay,I'm on a drugs and stuff, but yeah, but dude, like Hallucinagen'sand stuff. I mean you could go to Colorado and fucking puff on somewheregrass, yeah, or even and they're talking. We're talking about making theirtalking about making sutrooms legal and Colorado. But anyway, well, there yougo. But I mean, my whole thing of the story isn't anything todo with any of that. It's more like where the fuck was the chaperone? And this is more like a cautionary tale to parents out there now thatwe are at the age that we would be parents, that kids are onthe same age. Yeah, is that? Don't let your kids fucking go toEurope. Yeah, well, to they're going to be fucking true,fucking driver all, not dropping aster but chewing on mushrooms and letting fucking ducks. Yes, not a safe environment for...

...your teager no man. But interestinglyenough, shrooms in Amsterdam. I watched this crazy story not too long ago, because they've recently. I'm saying recently, he's probably ten years ago now,but they actually, of all places, Amsterdam, actually crack down and madeHallucin Jack Mushrooms illegal. There's like the first time they've actually gone backon drug legalization, and it's beg dude, and it's because all the tourists,it's never the locals. The locals can handle their shit because they don'tget out of control. They're just like okay, it's like booze, youknow, just bi it ust or no Biggie, but all the tourists wouldcome in and go nuts and they couldn't handle their shit. So, dude, there were these highly publicized cases of like one woman who was a totallygreat student, or girl, not a woman, a young like great student, all this. She takes the mushrooms and ends up committing suicide and itwas this big publicized thing because she was fairly wealthy. I don't know ifshe was friends or whatever. And then there was this other story about asimilar thing, where guy was, again a tourist, couldn't handle his shit. He's tripping on the mushrooms and next thing you know they're finding him witha disemboweled dog in a knife Christ and he's yeah, so this type ofShit, and there were more stories than that, but they led the governmentto to take action and actually make these mushrooms illegal. And, just tofinish this up, the little way that the manufacturers found to to get alittle loophole and think the law was written so that the they just altered theconditions of how they grow their mushrooms a little bit and the mushrooms, insteadof being mushrooms, they grow into a psychedelic truffle, you know where theystay underground like, and so they still sell these truffles that are hallucinogenic,apparently, of similar, similar effects, but they're not mushroom band shrooms,of growing truffles, motherfucker fast. Do you know? The thing about theguy with the dog is a little bit alarming. The the rich girl committingsuicide is terrible, but I was a little concerned that maybe that the reasonwhy they banned these substances were because they were overloaded, over inundated with abunch of transient ducks who who might hit hard times. They living on thestreet now, begging for smokes, and they said, you know what,fuck this right.

No. Weall have those friends or family members who introduce us to interesting stuff. Onhis WTF podcast, Mark Marin, who we mentioned earlier, actually often talksto his guests about how his older brother was the one to open him upto new music. Sometimes it's a cousin or a neighbor, just a friendfrom school. When I was in seventh grade, I had a music classin which we were allowed to bring in CDs and towards the end of classwe could play a song on the Class Stereo, provided it passed the teachersscrutiny as far as questionable lyrics were concerned.

To be honest, not a lotof kids took advantage of this little perk, but I sure did.Shit here was a legal way to listen to music and class. Plus,if no one played a song that day, the class just continued and we hadto actually learn. So one day I had popped in the Song Tommythe cat by Primus, being like one thousand nine hundred and ninety two.Most, if not all, of my classmates kind of looked at me strange. While my selection was playing, Primus was still unknown. I guess theywere still this unknown band of Weirdos. At that point, my name ismud had not yet broken through or even been released. Actually, at somepoint during the first minute or two of the song, the doorway connecting ourclass with the adjacent classroom opened and a kid with dyed blond hair walked in, apparently to retrieve something he had left in our room previously. He hada confident air about him that I liked, especially combined with his kind of skateboardor attire and dyed hair. I was only about thirteen and this wasstill the very beginning of the whole alternative culture explosion, so there weren't alot of kids that looked like this dude in my school. The thing thatendeared this unknown person to me was that when he heard the music playing,his ears seemed to perk up and he asked who's playing Primus. I raisedmy hand and, as if on Q, we both started singing the refrain.Say Baby, do you want to lay down with me? Say ababy, do you want to laid down by my set, etc. Thedudes name was Andrew Jones. He was a couple years older than me,so we didn't have classes together, but we would talk in the halls betweenclasses and eventually he invited me to hang out after school one day. Therest is kind of history. Andy became one of my best friends and yearslater we would embark on our own musical journey, playing in a band togetherand getting to tour with some bigger names in the field. But in ouryounger days we would just hang out after school or on weekends, Smoking Weed, listening to a lot of music, sometimes finding a place to skateboard fora few hours, sometimes heading to the arcades to play mortal Kombat to orkiller instinct. It turned out that Andy and I shared a lot more musictaste wise then primus. We were both into industrial music like skinny puppy andministry. We dug indie rock bands like dinosaur junior and lemon heads. Therewere so many areas where our tastes crossed paths. But being a few yearsolder and having listened to music a bit longer than I, Andrew often introducedme to new stuff that I didn't even know about. If it weren't forhim, I don't know if I would have gotten into electronic acts like afex twin or square pusher. Noise projects like the boredoms or even shown inknife may have flown under or over my radar. Andy exposed me to countlessbands or artists. One Genre that I was certainly under familiar with at thetime was hiphop. I was so into the weird, the underground and theharsh or noisy that I felt like hip hop was simply too mainstream for mysophisticated Palette. Yeah, I was a precocious and pretentious teenager. hiphop asa genre was just too ever present and overblown for me to consider it.For someone who claimed to be open minded to music, I was a bitquick to almost dismiss a whole style of musical expression. I think that anotherpart of it was that I had trouble, as a suburban White Kid, relatingto the expressions of a primarily black urban population. I definitely wasn't racist, I just didn'tt have a frame of reference and even though I was equallyhe as unfamiliar with the woes or lifestyles...

...of any German industrial artist or Japanesenoise project, I think it was the fact that it was so huge andpopular that it just turned me off. So Andy introduced me to some ofthe acts that weren't all over the radio that still had the respect of therap community. My Gateway Drugs into hiphop were weird acts like cool Keith's DrOctagon projects and his earlier group, the ultra magnetic MC's. I loved gettingstoned and listening to the early buster rhymes albums. Bust of blew me awaywith his speed and articulate word play, not to mention his overthe top persona. I won't get into the countless rappers that started to work their way intomy listening rotation. I'll just say that I quickly realized that I was sellingmyself short and depriving myself of some real entertaining and thought provoking art. I'vementioned before how the s were a real golden age for hiphop and the amountof talent was almost overwhelming back then. The late s saw the birth ofthis phenomenon known as backpack rappers. I'm running out of time here, butbasically, the backpack scene was less about the gangsterism that had worked its wayinto the scene and more about the talented flows and freestyle rat battles. Insteadof flashy clothes and huge entourage is this new crop of artists came to thegame armed with just a backpack filled with notebooks to write down their ideas.Hence the term backpack rappers. Guys like LP idea cage, the group atmosphereand this episode's suggested artist, Asop Rock, were representing real poetry and not juststreet culture and gang life. ASOP rock specifically ended up making a namefor himself as a truly unique talent. He's known as having the widest vocabularyin the game, and some study pointed out that he's used somewhere in thevicinity of seven thousand four hundred individual words over the span of his catalog,more than any of their wrapper, more by far than even William Shakespeare.You can hear a bit of his verbose skills here. The rest of thecards and a Messnox of fantasy coster bring a passagory. I ain't even mad, I'm impressed it. It's bappling. Got A mighty shopping I meet summeru being at Kis, play your own dirts on the way to surfing,Maggot, beach fucking storm, seeing a source of the art that can becooler than the corners where you source of aparts the poker face. Sola takesa couple sort of remarks. We let the Manicle Rop. We make thesource of Rebuk like the seone. Their party over here, I'll be overthere. So, insummation, it's important to have those people in your lifethat can introduce you to new things. It's important to give things in honestshake before you dismiss them entirely. I'm sure somewhere down the road I wouldhave eventually discovered what a great and unique art form hip hop can be,but thankfully I had someone to kind of guide me into it at a youngerage and I feel that my life has been all the richer for it.Andy brought a lot of light into my world and into the lives of manyothers. Getting me to dig some music was honestly just the tip of aglorious iceberg. Dude, I know we talked a lot about Andy Lately,which I think is great, because we keep the dudes legacy alive and we'vementioned him a few times on our last few episodes, but and we dedicatedour first one to him, as we've mentioned before. But yeah, Dude, the guy, the guy brought a lot to our lives and you knowwhere, and he's still sending a post...

...cards in the mail. That's right. If you that's the little catalog talk for anybody didn't hear that episode thata postcard with his name and advertisement rather and not are like hey, visitme in Hawaii. One of those arrived and it kind of freaked me thefuck out. You know, a sign for the great beyond? I don'tknow. But yeah, you're right. He has a lot of influence onthis very show because if he was around today, he probably be on theshow with US talking about the same shit that we talked about, you know. Yeah, man, I think it would be awesome if if he werearound and he could be on the show. I know he would have loved todo it, but amen. member. I'm not trying to go on likeAndy Stories here. Nothing now. That's fine, Bro. But whatwas his shure that he had it? Was it Fuck Fred Durst? DidHe have that? I didn't even really yeah, well, he wrote itand he wrote it in Sharpie. It was some folks he fucking hated,limp biscuit, HMM, beyond fucking belief, and we were at some show atthe palladium in western Massachusetts and he's like yeah, fuck that guy orsomething, and he made the sure. I don't know if they were playingthere that night or whenever. But he was fucking rock in that shirt andI just thought his coincidential. Because this morning I saw there's a new moviethat's how starring John Javolda, is directed by Fred Durst, and I thoughtabout Andy for a moment because I'm like, well, I thought that guy wasjust wiped off the face of the earth and Nope, he's back directingmovies. I'm like, and he wouldn't have cared for that one very much. Did Right, not at all. But but yeah, yeah, hehated them. I remember he didn't like the black eyed peas when they addedfergy. Oh yeah, that ruins the black eyed peas. Do we thething of his? We went and saw the black eyed peas when they werestill a credible band. They were opening for outcast. I remember we sawthem. But yeah, the black eyed peas first like album or two werevery good albums and they were almost in that sort of backpack style, notexactly, but they added Fergie and turned into this cheesy pop group and justkind of ruined it. So they were credible but they weren't rich. Yeah, maybe that's it all those motherfucker is. You can say anything you want abouthey, you lost your credibility. They'd be like, you know what, I'm speeding by my porsche. You let me know when I'm fucking flyingby eighty miles, proud as fucking throw him money out the Goddamn window.Dude. Seriously, man. So you know, there goes. But healso, I remember, he was like the first one on Eminem. Yeah, yes, I remember that. He's going that he saw himinem at thistiny club in Cambridge mass the Middle East, and that was, yeah, thelast time Eminem ever played a club that small. So, yeah,Yep, they actually, we actually saw a cool Keith at the Middle East. But we don't want to talk about that as a rough night for me. Yeah, you got booted out of that show, not once but twice. You got booted out. It's managed to sneak your way back in andgot moved it out again, not because they noticed your back in, butbecause you caused enough of a Rucas to warrant being thrown out again. Yes, and I was Ruckus with it with all you guys are my friends,and I got left in the city over the night and I had to figureout like a way way to stay alive, completely wasted just roaming around the streetsof Boston at fucking two am, which I did. Yeah, soI obviously I'm here talking to everybody right now and but yeah, that wasquite the experience. I'll never forget cool Keith. Of course I love theDr Octagon Album. Yeah, but that was quite the experience that show.So we just went from like a whole bunch of talk about, you know, you and Andy and him being an influence on you, great friendship,to some crazy stories about him to basically what kind of fucking I don't know, Cuckumchuo Ki, to use a word that I just invented that I couldbe when completely liquored up. I'm gonna get that on a TSHIRT. Cuckumtchuki, the selling out show, copyright, TM, all that fucking good shoe. But you know what, enough about that. Let's talk about your selectedlistening for next episode. What do you have for us? Well, thisis one of these weeks where everything was kind of last minute. I washaving a very busy week, so I I was I was kind of againdown to the wire, not just not just figuring out how I was goingto put together this snate's notes, but in coming up with next episodes selectionso, I think, just to further represent the the skills inherent in hiphop. And there's an interesting story that I kind of want to tell about thisartist. There's an artist named Kay, named are a, the rugged man. He's a guy who's been around for a long time. Again, I'lltalk about him next week, but there's next episode. Oh my God,did I do they did it again. This is two weeks in a row. You can't fucking do it it Geez, what's going on with you, buddy? And you know, before you go on about the Brawny Guy,the paper towel man you like to call the rugged man, I'm gonna youknow. You said you were struggling this week or this time. See NowI'm fucking doing it. I know we're...

...just complete. I'm professionals. Weshould be booted off the air, but still, I kept giving you aneasy out on what to choose, but you don't listen to me, youdon't care about me, you don't give me what I want. Instead wego on this route, but anyway, continue you please. are a therugged man has a kind of rowdy disposition. He's a he's a crazy dude,but he's got this one track that really kind of hits home for meand it's called still get through the day, and so that's going to be nextepisodes suggested listening is still get through the day by our a the ruggedman, and he's another one of these rappers that has amazing skills, amazingflow, uses a lot of syllables and a lot of words. So hopefullyit'll be interesting and maybe next episode will switch it up and I'll do someMichael McDonald or freaking yes, Doby blieve something, I don't know. Pleasegive me some Christopher Cross, give me something else. You know, Iwas in the mood for yacht rock all summer long and you didn't provide yeah, man, because I can't bring myself to I can't imagine writing a wholenights notes segment about Yeat Rock. No offense, but you know, haveyou? Have you ever listened to Yat Rock? Dude, I grew yeah, I grew up with some Damn Fogelberg and bread. Yeah, yeah,so what's the matter with it? What's the problem? Where did it touch? You show me on the doll. I just I'm having trouble being inspiredby it, but you never know, things strike your just time. Soit could happen, Dave. I'll keep you on the on the line.It's it could happen, buddy, it could happen. Well, that's that'ssomething thing for me to wake up to every morning. But the thing is, did you notice I call him the brawny man? Yeah, this ruggedguy, because to me that's rugged that I don't even know if he's stillon the paper towel rolls, the dude in the flannel, you better be, Goddamn it. Yeah, I know, I I buy paper towels like everycouple weeks. I've never even noticed the brawny man is still around,but to me that's the the ultimate symbol of masculinity right right there. Thatthat's the guy. That's a tough guy who's fucking saying clean up your messes, motherfucker, and use my paper to do it. Where that came from? But anyway, Grannie man. So yeah, it is a brawny man. So okay, we're getting the HIP hop couple episodes in a row.You pull in the Kevin Smith on us a little too worried both times.Up is still it should be interesting.
