For Yourlistening pleasure, I am one of your host David shols and over here we havemy good pal Niarzynski nate. How are you? Oh, my goodness, man I'm having aa great day, and you know why why? Because today is February, it's almostmarch and which is usually the armpitch chittiest part of winter, especially inNew England and dude, it's got to be sixty degrees outside it's gorgeous. Iwas you know outside without a jacket. I D almost feel like. I could bear ateacher, I'm loving it. I'm loving him being spoiled this winter. Okay, todayis an Anuary. You say it is February. tenvernot Monday, not today, IISFEBUARYitadual a today is February a is actually February whatever abr yeah sobut the ine is it's all good, and but honestly man, I'm wondering now how arethings with you? How have you been l goon? Well, I'm good! Thank you. It'snot unseasonably warm where I'm at right now so B, by the way, just a quick h thingabout that is you know, you're enjoying today, like you, said, you're you'redawning appropriate clothing for the weather. It's making you feel better,but it's going to be taken away from you o very soon. Well, because it's not sustainable,like you say, Ri today is February. You know it's going to get cold again, it'sjust one of those owreek days, but as far as me, I am good. I have a day offof work which I always enjoy thoroughly and UH. I pretty much spend my days offfrom work, doing the same thing that I would have. If I was sixteen years old, I watch movies all day I read comicsand, as a matter of fact today I watched a movie that I love that no oneelse seems to care for okay, which one's a macgruber mgruva. He made ahucking movie, my Graa thfunny n UWILFORTA, as a emor Ta. You introducedme to that movie. I watched it with you, I believe, like years ago, yeah and Ienjoyed it thoroughly- et's Weird Ust, now, ten years old, yeah, it's been outfor a decade, but any time I usually mention Agrubarto people yeah anotherone of those sand: l movies, yeah, Qorky, Ramano Oro night at theRockburry wwell. That leads me to ask you how many good sn l films have thereactually been dmn dude I mean we had the classixpectof the day we had thewaynes world old standard yeah that was great, but eventually man. You startedhitting shit like it's Pat Asure androgenous characterthere yeah, so they made a notoriously horrible pat movie. They made yeah thatnight at the Rockburi Mia. Yes, supersidinen, remember se! Some ofthese are so forgetable that I literally have forgotten. Well Suplus,Arin coicidently was directed by Bruce...

...mccullaugh. Is that reasking we bothfrom the KI in e Halland? We are kids in Allan my favorite kid in the hall.As a matter of fact, really S. Yes, came wonderful! He's a whacky fickingdoode check out his sketches over anyone else's there they're like a an acid trip that they are comedy y hyeah, but I would have to go up on a hill and be willing to fight to saythat mcrouber is up there on my pant beyond, which is a weird thing to sayabout s and L, films based off characters, but I mean, as far as someof the best weamn Vl tilmer didn't yes, Deder Vaun Kunk, but the thing about the grier too. Itwas more okay, it's a comedy, but it's an action movie as well, and it kind of plays off of the vibesof you know: I'm a fan of those those sec, Abrams movies like airplane S, Gonop, seqret, top sequently, you gon to the VAL Kilmer Buhicle. Oh that's right!If you see the naked gun thoe, those kind of lass is kind of jokes, soslapsticky kind of and of course, an idiot you're rooting for a completemoron who just come out unscayed by the end of the morning. You know I'm amoron, so excuse me hope right ut. I I too can have some kind of crazyadventure and still be deemed the hero. Imagine that but any films out there,aside from S and l movies, that you really like that no one else seems togive a fuck about, or they judge you and think. Why would you like thatmovie? I I'll tell you man, yeahwell I'll, tell you specifically my favoritemovie of Oltin people. Often look at me sideways when I say that my favoritemovie is big trouble and Little Cina, which you know. I I think it's you knowappropriately cheesy in eighties and whatnot, but it's a good adventureaction movie. It had that eighties thing with the Asian culture likeeverything was ninges and Rinese, and all this and I know technically ninges-are Japanese and and picture on little China's talking about China. Of course,I don't want to get a crucified by the the PC police. You know, but but anywbdn a little China back to what I was speaking about. I Dude, I thinkpictoral, China's a great movie, I mean sure it's cheesy in Eightye, putwhatever and people do kindo. Look at me weird. So I guess that's the onlyone I can really think of. As far as movies that people look at me weird forsaying I enjoy so my to see if you said something like Cannibal run too. I might you know, Kinda Ou Know Wen,sat you a little bit in pain and go why? Why would you choose that of allfucking movies, but I mean in trouble Ch. I can understand that I it's recepable its a little JohnCarpenter directed you know he's you know, he's Kinda hit her miss, but hehe's got a good reputation overall heand been to Tho Halloween and h. YouGo seand. If you come to the party you say, oh mcruber was actually funny.People look look at you and go, but you are actually not, and that is nothumorous. Get Te fuck out of the party, leave you drink down and get the hellout of here. So it's a rough thing to admit you know,but I'm a little curious as far as to what the lesteners might think. Isthere a film out there o not even just a film anything in life that you seemto enjoy, that other people might rag on you for, if so reach out to us. Howdo you do that? It is easy you can follow us on our socials at selling outshow ors anisan email selling out show at gmal dotcom. We wanta here from you a my worst nightmare, basically hascome to fruition, tthat's horrible new. It is terrible, tragic news and I thinkanybody in my age range or just a parent in general fears this more thanany other thing on the face of the...

...earth. Now you min't be thinkingsomething disastrous, cataclismic, no we're not going that far we're talkingabout getting a little down and dirty with your significant other and yourchild walking into the room. Oh my God, you don't Wantto to see that some! Idon't even want to see that Ri, never video. I hate myself an my flabby assdoing the huchikuci Mommy Wai or whatever the hell. You want to call it.No because that', you know we enjoy it, but it's probably not the best thing hfor someone's h. How should I say this? Mental Health, especially Lik youngtender, age Ri, but now, all of this being said, I'm not entirely sure. Myson saw much if anything at all tanks in large part to my wife's quickdecision making by slamming the door in his little face wel man. She was on topof that Shithuh I was on top of her yeah. You were Ouer and she was on top of thesituatio. She was on top of Thi Listen. This is all her fault. That became withjust to Kinda, give a little backstory here, it's not like in the middle ofthe day or anything, but it's e borning, and you know you think, okay he's goingto sleep a little bit later. It's the weekend he's not going to wait notingat no school ut. I know I'm kindof pushing the boundaries on time here,but ow horny. I need to get something done and Shand. She said she locked thedoor so once once the door is locked, you're,good, baby, you're, safe absolutelyimean bases are covered. Yourbasis are covt and Ya worry a little bit about noise, but still the door islocked. So what what have you and uh so we're getting gigy with it and, as you do as w yes and the dooropens, suddenly, doesn't open ather weight? Now my bed is very close to thedoor. So how did I respond? You may bethinking like a turtle. I tucked my head back into my shelf. Ijust CRESSD, basically my whole body weight on my poor white. Oh my God, youburied your head in the sand like a legatris. Yes and thankfully, she justreached over with a Handman Sim ithe door, shut the doors and h andhe's like. What's going on in there and she's like nothinks stay out of here,and I'm like Oh Goh, God OL Christ. What am I going to do? You're imaginingthe scars appearing on his mind as I don't Wan ta. I don't want to look himin the face. I don't know if I can look him in the eyes again, I don't knowwhat he did or did not see him. You know. So I see this to my wife, I'mlike. Oh, I'm, so embarrassed what the hell am I going to do what she's likeGon', get dressed and I'll I'll go out and handle this and I'll? Let you knowwhat happen you know. I put my clothes back on andwhat have you and I'm thinking all these scenarios in my brain, liketwenty years from now, my kid is going to be a high school drop out and it'sgoing to be like fuck, you dad I'Sal because of Ui saw your Saggi Ball, Ereohurting, Mommy R, something I don't know just justeven having to answer any questions in the present right. Yehow do O he's onlyseven. I cant. I can't do this eyes. The conversation you' not prepared tohave that early. You know it's one thing when they get a little older andy. You know maybe get the birds and the bees thing going, but chances are, andnowadays kids learn that shit on their own yeah we're a friend you know like whenI was a kid. I had a friend who, whose father had a massive porno, absolutelyyeah. That's how I learned about sex WAAS, going over his house him watchingthese videos that he wasn't supposed to be watching a you know. That's that's anormal weiting. Yes, absolutely you find a collection of Por, I mean n. Ifyou remember back when we were kids porn like magazines, especially I don'tknow so much about movies back then, but but the magazines could not showpenetration and stuff, so it was like they didn't even really help a kid tosee exactly how you do things. You know...

I mean a magazine only helped so much,but I remember once it was when I found movies they you know. Actually I that'swhere I got. My education was like Oh y, that's where that goes, and that's whathappens and you're, not just peeing on a girl's, private parts or somethingyou know, Whi h, which is really an honestquestion to ask you. I asked the same thing in sex education, likeejust, Pthings and they're like Oly, if she's into that, but it takes U ta kind ofGirl H, but you know so I didn't know what to do to get back tothis story at hand. But I did I I I ventured out. I sat next to my son onthe couch and he was Likhey da, I'm like hey morning. How are his it goodgood Li e okay, this is going unbelievably Wenso. I walk into thekitchen, I say to my wife: What happened here she cause. I don't thinkhe saw anything. I think I slammed the door in his precious little face in thenickotime and he was just more curious as to why I slamed the door on right,and I told him that you were vaping in the bedroom. Now I enjoy nevervaping the hol somebody's homes SBUT. That was quick thinking. That's that'sfine. That is perfectly okay, because you know I'll take one fault against me.If it's more acceptable than the actual fall you'd rather be seen as someonethat did a little baping in the bedroom instead of and were violating the poor,kis mother as a teenager, I was smoking a joint in the bathroom ine time and mybrother came in and I was like God o Fa, ou or whatever, and then I'm like. OhI'm so Bossiv for smoking. Marijuana in my house. Thankfully he didn't know thedifference and he told my mother. I was smoking cigarettes, so she goes well.Why are you smoking cigarettes in the house? I go yes IAM! So sorry, emonizes me, I I've earned it ca E. Iwas like oh here we go. I got away with one here Yipeed. Youknow he elllet out to lesser charges, eaexactly, and that seems to be whathappened here. Thankfully excellent I mean, hopefully it's not something.That's going to be like deep rooted into his Sayam. You know maybe washback. Maybe he already repressed it. He just doesn't remember his body. Just ismine just automatically like pushed it into the dark recesses, but I repressit no', the guy doing it yeah shes Luez, but I I mean again. This issomething that I think a lot of parents worry about. You knowabsolutely nobody wants it's. It's weird enough for me to be in in theACTIV codis in having sa a dog. Looking at me, weird 'cause, you know, we'vegot more animals than children in the house which you know it is either goodor bad. I couldn't really tell you, but you know it's it's one thing you feel alittle weird when the dogs kind, O Cock E, Say Cock. When I'm talking about adog. Look at me, an SA well you'r sure Da, I feel dirty, even though there'sno real reason to to but uh, but anyway the dog looked at me alittle askance. I guess I'll use that and I feel a little weird but blescedlyuh. Her Son has never walked in on US and H. You know, which is strange,'cause our apartment's, pretty small, so one would think that it would beinevitable. But Yeah we've been pretty lucky so well, the dog is probablythinking the same thing. My child would be thinking right, Whyar, you hurtingMam. That's my my go back whya! You pounding that that doesn't lookcomfortable. She must be in a lot of pay. I you know hat. Are you doing iwhyyou punching it ow man? Why are you doing that? Another teenage memory Ihave- and I kind of relate it to this- is because I I I've had two oppositereactions. Now, this time again, I buried my head in the sand and his ooflike went flat like a Pancae, but as I...

...think I was sixteen or something I wasenjoying, making love wl put it Nice, oomaking love to my girlfriend at thetime and her sister walked into the room, and at that time I leaped up andoff of her, like some kind of tree fro for the Amazon and layd it on the floor.So I I canonly imagine she saw my little dingaling midair, like theMatrix, SOS swinging back and forth, like a cuckoo clock. Before I hit thefloor and H if f, O my fighter flight, I'm Tellin is it's really. It's reallybeen on point my entire line. Andkayna. We got something on new craze here,Sweepin the nation. Yes, all the Ar hotch rend, yes, Hash Tag, whatever called Corona Iris O. Yes, it's the theflu dejure. If you will yes on the Menu Ra, the Flud as yourpleasyeah- and you know it's one of those things that you can't escape the newsabout it, no matter what you do, there's always one of them. It's eitherwe had the you know the swine flu, the Burn Helu, the eastern EquineanSephyltis. We have SAR s, there's always one. That's why this Yeh yeah,it's just the the flue of the day, man. It is what it is right and the thing is.I don't really worry about it too often. I say this not because I'm ignorant,which is, I guess, is partially true, but at the same time I got that weirdtheory about H, not getting the flu shot talked about it on the show before,like I, my my innerds are made of like tank material. Now my immune system ismerged with cockroach DNA, so I will survive, but still it s, it's likeunless you're confronted with it yeah, it won't bother you, but I work withthe publiclrigt every day I and customer this Ka just to Kindo, alludeto what I do without saying what I do, because I want that to be a mysterye.Let's keep a little little secrecy in your life, a little little mysteryright, yeah I'll talk about banging my wife and hiding fror my kid, but Iwon't tell you what I do for a living. That was no um personal yeah, two PERSO,but you might see me out there in public one day. So you never know ifyou ever Wan a an autogram or somethingor. If You'e just want tobitch slap me, it wil, but the thing with customers tere's a lot of times:they're rude they're, pricks, they're, fucking assholes, and they when theyask you, questions they cough, they don't com en their mouth. On my goodyeah, it's awful, so yotr Ou t hold your Brenth whol you're. Talking to I'mlike M mhmyou know I don't know e the n there' a new virus out there and youcoughing s ov my face. Yes, I don't know what's worse that well, when yousee customers come into a store or a public place and they're wearing thethe masks like the surge IHS. Those are everywhere. Nowadays, yeah I mean come on. Now I mean if yougoin an airplane. How freaked out? Are You the moment? You see someone wearinga Surch, comma ohit's, a little weird, you feel like you're in the movieoutbreak or something yeah exactly be worried, but they they wear 'emeverywhere in fucking China Bro, like you, see pictures of people in Chinathey're like everybody's whay, it's weird to not wear em out there, butwhich, coincidentally, that's where the fucking Corona Veris was starting,apparently so right, good job masks, Yeah Riad, nothing, yeah, but I see Hem. I go to thedoctor's office, which of course is just like a big bowl of germs going tothe doctor's office and yeah, but they have the big sign and itsays, take one of these masks if you are showing symptoms of either a coldor whatever a fever or cough or this or that, and so the masks aren't so muchto protect you from what's out there. But it's more to capture your germs asthey spill out of your fucking, headholes Yo know,...

...and so it's basically a a courteousthing to wear them. It's not so much that you're like Oh. I don't want toget what you got. It's Hei'm being nice and not giving you what I got yeah. YouSee. That's the big misconception y right, because most people are wearingthem for their qute, UNQUOTE, protect! Absolutely that's what a lot of peopledo: Yeah and Tere's a shortage its hard to get them right now. So evenme, if I wanted one, I probably can't go by, I have to wear my my apat mask ha the hoes on it and everything I'mprotecting myself from corona and Carona means crown yea, so wh wh wh. What does hat have to dowith the flu? Is it like? The King of Flus is like Budweiser, the King ofBeera? What's going on here, I think realistically, most of those names alot of them are because of the shape of the cell itsell for the bacteria itselfwow. What could you with an Ola Ey? You know what to be honest with you, I'mjust kind of pulling them in my ays, but I think I've seen that somewhere,but okay, I'm not ping a wierlong ot of my eyes literally. No, no, that y yourbho would have to be the size of a dinner play. To do that. An I mean,even if you're, not a hundred percent, sure that's the best expanation I'veheard all day and today is February but o. So you know I mean come on. That waspretty darned good, but I don't know I don't know if I shouldcontinue to keep worrying about it. What I do do what I do Dodo do Dodo,that's not as stupid, but I say I anyway. If I take one of those immunitytablets like the alker culter style ones that you drop in the water and Idrink whene, every do good e airbone ran there. You know, so I won't get aflu shot an I will have some appervessingbefore. I start my shs andprotect yourself look out man that could be compromising your mightyimmune system. You're! It's it's GOINGTO, get lazy, 'cause you're,putting all this effortvessence into it, th a Muaston's going to be like, ohwell. I guess I don't need to do my job. So much he's got this canfer coveredwith the the fizzy fucking drink. So I don't know know I just related itearlier to a tank and a cockroach- and here I am. This- is wildberry Ash Thi,as gin all the nutrians yeah it's busy and all the Newtrians. I need to getthrough the an the bubbles, their till in my nose hm. I can't wait till see: Nats Bhal thesize of a dinner plane, Oan Carbona and S. yes. Now we're all going to Diet A FIMMY!Goodness is the most wonderful time of the year. You know why was: Is Cadbury Cream Egg seeson baby teback? Oh you love 'em! Oh, I can't get enough of 'EM. I'm a fan o there's,there's two kinds of people in this world: people who enjoy cadmery creameggs and those who do not but nd. I think same time. Last year on this veryshow, I brought up my love, a cadary remixit's Gon, it's becoming an annualtradition and it's more like a public service announcement to let you allknow to run out to your stores, Flus viruses. What have you bedamn stock upon them? Delicious Little Bastards and let me tell you coming from a guy whohas thirty five years worth of cavary cream egg eating experience by theboxes, not the loose ones, Yep you're, a professionaw yeah. I I know weirdstuff about weird stuff: Hey, that's that's what we love about Yo! Wellthank Yo and the reason why you should buy the box, not the individual one isI I guess two pronged reson one, the foil seems to stick on them: 'cause.They leak yeahthet Gross Oen. That happens a little G, Yait 's, tough topeel and then the second thing.

Sometimes the foil even falls off, andyou can imagine all these people with their grubby bingers, yeah aging in and touching yoallchacolate right, at least, if you get the box, you know if anyone's touching,it's just the outside of the fucking box, man. Yes, yes exactly so I stockup, I buy a bunch of Hem a she. No no, but I tell you man. We are not evenbeing paid by Cadbury. I think. No, I think they have a good enough productwhere they don't need us. You know sholling their shit, but we're justdoing it out of love for the fucking for the product, it's yeah. I know it is great and that's one of thosethings where you know I. I love the the partners that we do have in productpartners, Ye h, but if cadbury ever came a call and and just backed up thetruck- and it was like here's a year supply of cabury cream eggs man- I Imight die not of diabetes. I'm talking here happiness I might die of beingcrushed by that truck load of eggs falling on me, yeah Acoulwell. You should stand back,you know it beeps, the truck when it when it backs o o Ra a little beepingnoise. But but again, you know is made me think a little bit about somethingis there are no generic cabury cream eggs and if you've never gone groceryshowig e, there's oftentimes. You sacrifice, Iguess in a way quality for price. Maybe it's hut dogs right y you're outthere, and this is somet, no listen. This is something I never fucking. DoI'm very strict about the hut dogs I buy. They have to be all bf or you know alwhatever. I don't want the lips and asshole. So if I see someone and I'mshopping and they have like bar asshot dogs ind their cardio, I think that's.The kind of life you got. Ta Have you're a baess. Looking Dude, you knowyour se. Youe bought the ninety nine Cent Hut, dogs, you're. Okay, with allthat I don't know if we can be frangd right, hey e!! if that's the way youwant to live great but h, you know I just can't yeah associate with you.Sorry is there something out there that you would never skimp on nop, okay, iamantizing, I'm one of those amplethat if you, if there's a cheaper version of it o I an buy it because,I'm I don't know, I I feel like I've tried most things in my life, I've tried thegeneric version and I've tried the name brand and usually there's not much of a difference. Imean don't get me wrong. There are. There are some things where you cantell the difference, but for the most Partdu, I'm looking for value I've,I've lived in places where I've eaten jail, food or Hoeles, shelter, food orwhatever, like I've, eaten some garbage. In my day so yeah I mean if IV got alittle extra money and I feel like splurging I will, but I'm I'm the typeof person an I'm like. Oh, they have a cheaper Walmart version of this Umfucking dryin that so I don't Kn. Unless it's cadbury, 'cause Catbadoesn't even have one, but that's what Iwas saying they don't even have woretankful. You know what I mean because that's the kind of situation you don'twant to put yourself into. But what is your cut off or cost diffemential O myGod Dud? So I got product X and product. Why? Why being generic- and it's onlyyou know so much cheaper? Well, yeah! That's a good question. If it's likewell, you know the the generic versions only of ten cents cheaper than BlahBlah B yeah- I don't know I mean I'll, usually buy. I buy a lot of ice tea mix,you know m the powdered mix, the for sea or the Liptin. You know the atics and sometimes I'll buy the generic one, andsometimes I won't and there's usually only a fifty cent difference, so thoseall usually buy the name brand, one the lip in or whatever, but I will say this,someone Tipp me off that the price chopper brands of the ice team ix is actually better thanthe name brand on. So in that one you...

...score, you know someone pointed out tome and I I didn't believe Om my first, but then I'm like you know if I like. Isaid I have no shame about buying generic versions. So one day I tried it.I went out ano the Dimand God demnit if they weren't right man. That shit wasright. I mean N, I'm sorry, I'm not trying to make funny we're talkingabout powder. I I went for the generic powder. This one is cut with ASPIR.That's right! That's why it's so much cheaper! No, I mean Hatsuc a minor thing compared to ye. Ahlike a meat product or o you, you know what I mean. Yes, when we're getting ato animal products involved, and definitely if it's like flesh, youdon't want generic flesh you're by your oneric fucking animal flesh that thatdoes sound bad. You know! Well I Y I I I guess I could admit that when wetalking about Flaga I'd, probably go for the fifty dollar Hooker Rathan t ehundred dollar yeah, the quality of the flesh has tobe there m an if you'R e. At that point, yeah I've already been drinking. Youreally can't tell the difference, so you may as well go with with the onewith the the gravity issues you know. Sometimes men, you know you'd be surprised. Sometimes thecheaper version is better case in point. The the price choper itemic or sally,that's on main south and wocester she's she's cheaper than any of them, but that lack of teeth makes a difference.You feel it. You know. Yeah and she's. Andhe beaks coupon yeah, exact she's,got she's, got the venerans discount H, haven't seen your citizen discount onSaturdaysgot the the blue light special or whatever there. You know, she'sshiting under t e Blue Light, shes, no Fi liht, don't work an Ke's Blinkenfucking up. My cataract won a glow job yeah, but my point is: She was chargingless for not having teeth and I tink that's a Fuckin. That's a selling point.I do want to remind you, though. A lot of people have no idea what pricechopper is. Yes, I know I I realize that after I said it, price chopper forthose of us that don't live in New England or wherever e say price is afranchise of grocery stores.

So what are youwaiting for get on over there and remember when you shop with ourpartners, you help support the show, and for that I thank youte door lb intime for na no, no back in the nineties as I've written about before. There wasa great opening up of minds. As far as promoted music was concerned, a lot ofstrange barried musical acts were being signed by major labels, and evenindependent labels were seeing unprecedented success. It was the ageof alternative music and, while that term was already around in the eighties,with bands like the cure, RN, the pashmode et Cetera the nineties saw theword alternative, become primarily a musical genre. I've mentioned more than once over thecourse of this show that there was this huge paradime shift in the earlynineties, during which time many, a spendix clad in glam metal band, foundthemselves shelved by their labels to make room for some dudes wearingflannel and ripped jeans. Again, alternative bands existed and even gotdecent airplayed before this, but Nervada came along and they were ableto compete with, like Michael Jackson on the charts. This was different. Ofcourse, then you had the whole grunge phenomenon, Pearl Jam, screaming trees,sound garden, et Cetera, which then opens the doors for scape punk bandslike no effects and bad religion. In a short couple of years, the air waveshad gone from playing warrent and ski row to the offspring, and nine is nailsand occasionally much stranger, fair...

...and now we finally get to the meat ofthis episodes. NATES notes it took long enough to get there but yeah at somepoint in the early nineties, after being reassured by record sales andeventually by the success of the new Lala Plusa tour. The labels and radiostations started feeling brave enough to backbands that were further andfurther left of centere. Nirvana and Greenday were one thing, but they atleast sounded like pot music behind all the Storton. Suddenly I was turning onMTV and seeing back with this weird production and psychodelic lyrics ormorphine a band that consisted of a drummer, a sax player and a singer whoalso played a base with only two strings. They didn't even have a guitaror keyboard or anything else. The former singer of eighties IcelandicWeirdo band, the sugar cubes, a tiny eldish woman with a huge and uniquevoice named Bork, was a new solo artist, doing some other worldly stuff, mixingelectronic dance music with ambient textures, adding almost childlikeimagery and Icelandic sensibilities in her lyrics, delivered by an impossiblevoice that can sound tiny, an vulnerable one moment in the next you'dswear. She was some kind of fearsome beast. Barkis. Definitely an artistthat doesn't sound like anyone else, especially like any other acts onmainstream radio or MTV back then another example is primis. PRIMIS isAben that truthfully had more musical chops than most of the bands gettingbig at that time. Less Claypool the front man and base players still th goto example of what egreat base player is, but they write weird music man,mind blowingly, complex, sometimes but fucking weird. Then there were thepresidents of the United States of America putting out singles like lumpand peaches while playing on oddly tuned instruments that only had two orthree strings kind o like the aforementioned morphine, they might be giants, wroteunapologetically, Nurdy, songs about science and ship they're, probably bestknown for doing the theme sone to Malcolm in the middle, but a closesecond would be Istanbol, not constanzinople, a song about renaminghistorical cities. I mean novelty. Songs have always existed, but thenineties seem to have a ton of acts. Singing them remember. Detachable Penisby King Miszle, even tub thumping by Chumbawamba, was a pretty weird tuneand again what sets a lot of these acts? Apart is that they got airplay onstations that weren't just novelty or college radio. It seems Kindo like inthe seventies, you had progressive and Glam Rock and disco, and then Pung,which gave way to the AIS and all the new wave and hair metal groups. Allthese acts really seemd to take themselves superseriously the egos allfed on their own legends until the music industry became kind of a parotyof itself, so maybe by the nineties, a lot of us were ready for somethingdifferent. We were ready for some humor. We were ready for something weird andsure there were still rock and pop...

...stars with huge Egos. And yes, therewere a lot of styles of music breaking through from industrial rock to SkapePunk, an new metal, but I feel, like part of the DNA of the nineties thatsets it apart from the decades before is the emergence of a law of Weirdos.In regards to your peace yeah, I want to sing you two songs, Oky first oneall I want to do is to thank you, even though I don't know who you are youletime Changeas whil. I was driving in my ca, yes, N Y and the second song goes somethinglike this h and when you start talking aboutthese quirky nineties tunes and you listetoff a lot of 'em goes to in presidents of the United States. You mentionedwith lump just immediately pop into my mind: it'sjust hes, weird yeah, weird tunes that don'tnecessarily define the decadebut, we're very important to it. M Yeah Man and,like you, I don't know it's weird the sins you mentioned. I mean Gegita thatfirst one all I want to do is to thank you soing, that H, that's son IV reallyenjoyed that album and n a lot of these acts that I was mentioning andspecifically the two that you just brought up were pretty much one hitwonders he didn't hear a lot of followups to to those songs, yeah, and I feel like that single by Gagita. That first onewas enough. That made me curious and I enjoyed the music. I I checked out therest of their catalogue and I really dug it and it's a shame that that wasthe song that Kinda got them their only brush with fame, because they they havea lot of talent and they're good and a lot of the right ends. I'm sure it did. Butdo the public likes a catchy song.That's a little funny. You can be like othat's, a weird song he's in. I wantthank you for letting me change lanes. While I was driving- and I don't knowthat came Jaf- that song by the crash test stummies. That was them and those guys were really good too, but I thir their catalogue was full of songslike that Quirky little son, they had a song about Superman and you knowwhatever th. All their songs were kind of novelty, singing about Yeah Superman,fighting, Solimond Grundy, and you know they were both well one being a song,the other being the name of the band related to operating a motor vehicle,hcrasssystemies and Yeah Driving Sho. The you go and imagine the fate of thecrash test dummy here in two thousand and twenty. You might be talking to aPoerista, getting your double late and they say. Oh so, and so you go heybefore you say my name, don't forget, I was in crash test tummies and they gowhat fuckare you talking about. That'll be eighteen dollars and ninety centsfor a small Siryeah an nowadays a lot of those people don't even know whothese bans are. A lot of the public wouldn't even know t the crash,tystommies or specifically Gigitawno at all, forget about it. I mean, unlessyou were famous enough to the point where you still have tshirts being soldyeah target whertarge Yo your band was not successful enough in the nineties.You know what I mean to the point where you would be remembered and that'sthat's something that bothers me sometimes, because when we were livingit, we wanted to be rock stars because we thought it was your punch orpunching a ticket into immortality.

Know I'm I'm a being the GREEDEST PANand people will remember my namenwell now. In with hindsight. No, you cou D,You could have had a number one hi t you could have made millions of dollarsand now nobody knows who the fuck ou e blutely and that so the n thing thatteenage dreams oest that childhood wonder seriously, and I talk to people thatare in my band with me and we'll get together and we practice we're supposedto practice tonight. You know I remember because they said Hey we'regoing to practice on February S. I know. We'R Gladyon way to remember is itsfene yeah, yes, so, but the other members of my bad. Someof them are quite young. Specifically this one, this one member she's. Ithink she might be twenty one and she she's awesome, she's a great Saner andshe writes great music. We do a lot of covers as I've mentioned before, butshe wants to focus more in writing our own, which I love. I love doing that,but her whole thing is like you know. I really want to buckle down and makethis happen and become a successful band. I think we can do this and allthis and yes, Oh til, that's what I'm saying. Of course you need to have somekind of a dream and you wantto feel that way, but I'm this jaded dude in inhis early forties, now who's just kind of looking back going. It's notGOINGTOIT's, not GOINGTO HREN, to happen. I'm sorry like we're able, ifwe focus on what we're doing with a lot of familiar songs to people, we canmake some money doing this, which is good like we're actually able to makemoney doing what we're doing now and she's looking at it like. Oh, we couldturn into some kind of rocket like you and I used to do when we were youngr.You know she's just at that stage right now, so it's a little funny to look at now: You're, the jaded old soul who'slike listen, Bab, we're ot about success, WE'RE ABOUT SCRATCH! fuckingplay this Awin, okay y. How can we make money and get some freebeers to o know exactly, and I I mean you never want to squash somebody'smouth, R and aspirations, and maybe she might go on on her own and become youknow. Who knows I don't know, but the thing is yeah Youe gotto be realisticas well, because I'll tell you one thing: If you said to me: Ok Dave, youcan be fucking I' here's a time machine. You can go, be Giggi Tolia at to Hidotheir success when they have the number one song, but then you can only do itfor one day and then you'll never fuck and have any taste of you know successagain, I'd be like yes, that would be wonderful. I would love to do that.Thank you very much, that' be that'd, be awesome, that'd be the best vacation.I've ever had sure or ever will have and uh so set your expectationsaccording yes, you now what I mean a so again. I don't say this a slight GeggyTaw, like you said they ere, very talented musicians. Rit. But again, ifyou mentioned that to anybody, they might think you're having an epilepticseizure, not naming a band YEAHEXAC is its face. Drooping Godh check her the signs of a stroke.He keeps saying Gigi ta it is he smell, burnt toast exactly so. You know the dream stilllives on, though, for Gigi Tab, because US old sons, ofd bitches talk about 'emon online radio, even olive keeping Hem alive. You know, but but still you knowit's it's it's a rough road to travel when you, when you' Hi, something thatyou think is the top of the mountain, the Pinnacle and then twenty yearslater, no one knows who the fuck you are, but I feel like they will always be the love in thepublic for a catchy Quirky Little Song Eso. If you can write one of those,maybe that's what me and my band have to do with the rigt one little cachisong about whatever something that everyone can kind of relate to, likemaybe luckwho didn't replace the toilet paperrole on this. You know when they were...

...the last person to shit. They left yea.One piece of paper on the roll like everybody can relate everybody canrelate. I think, though, if I take anything from this adition of natesnotes is that for every never mind there was also a novelty aspect to thenineties scene. That was just as important yeah, an just in a differentway: Yep Yeh, absolutely, and with that we are becoming a novelty. We are tired,we are old and you will see us on sale at your local spenser gifts. So with that we gotta hit the road,maybe knack it up. D: Jack put it in the back, you know so rid on right own.I want to think each and every one of you for taking the time to listen toour Humba little program today, virtual hugs, all around I Andam that is nate,and this has been a selling out- show heis.
