Hello,hello, hello, and thank you for tuning into the selling out show,where we screw up life at our leisure for your listening pleasure. I amone of your host David shows, and over here we have my good palmake Gore Zinski. Nate, how are you? Oh my goodness, man, I'm having a great day and you know why? Why? Because todayis February, it's almost much and which is usually the armpitch shittiest part ofwinter, especially in New England. Huh and dude, it's got to besixty degrees outside. It's gorgeous. I was, you know, outside withouta jacket. I almost feel like I could wear a t shirt. I'mloving it. I'll love and I'm being spoiled this winter. Okay, todayis February. You say it is February. Ten Thursday, not Monday. NotToday's February. It's February. Today is February. Is Actually February whatever. Okay, so February. Yeah, so, but the point is,it's all good and but, honestly, man, I'm wondering how how arethings with you? How have you been going on? Well, I'm good. Thank you. It's not unseasonably warm where I'm at right now. So, by the way, just a quick thing about that. Is You know, you're enjoying today, like you said, you're you're dawning appropriate clothing for theweather. It's making you feel better, but it's going to be taken awayfrom you very soon. How's that? Well, because it's not sustainable.Like you said, today is February. You know it's going to get coldagain. This is one of those freak days. But as far asme I am good. I have a day off from work, which Ialways enjoy thoroughly, and I pretty much spend my days off from work doingthe same thing that I would have if I was sixteen years old. Iwatch movies all day. I read comics and, as a matter of fact, today I watched a movie that I love that no one else seems tocare for. Okay, which one's that? Mac Gruber? Mcgruber, he madethose fucking movie my group. That's it was funny. You liked that. Yees, will forte, yes, I think we're TA. You introducedme to that movie. I watched it with you, I believe, likeyears ago. Yeah, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. It's weird. It'snow ten years old. Yeah, it's been out for a decade, butanytime I usually mentioned a grouper two people. Yeah, yeah, it's another oneof those snl movies. Yeah, right, it's Corky Romano, orfucking the night at the rocksberry. Well, well, that leads me to askyou, how many good snl films have their actually been? Damn,Dude. I mean we had the classics back in the day. We hadthe Wayne's world, old standard. Yeah, that was great, but eventually,man, you started hitting shit like the it's pat sure, and drudginghis character there. Yeah, so they made a notoriously horrible pat movie.They made, yeah, that night at the Rocksbury mist. Yes, SupersiI didn't even remember see. Some of these are so forgettable that I literallyhave forgotten them. Well, superstar,...

...in coincidentally, was directed by BruceMcCullough. Is that? Yes, and we both from the kids in Holly. Yes, weird kids in all fans. Yea. My favorite kid in thehalls, matter of fact, really was McCall. Yes, okay,wonderful. He's a whacky fucking dude. Check out his sketches over anyone else's. They're they're like an acid trip. That they are comedy. Yeah,yeah, but I would have to go up on a hill and be willingto fight to say that MC Gruber is up there on my Panteon, whichis a weird thing to say about SNL films based off characters. But Imean as far as some of the best. Yeah, man, Val Kilmer didn'tit? Yes, Dieter, Vaughan Kump, but the thing about thegrouper to it was more okay, it's a comedy, but it's an actionmovie as well, right, and it kind of plays off of the vibesof you know, I'm a fan of those those Zucker Abrams movies, likeairplane. Sure, we see the naked Guno, secret top secret that yougo into the VAL kilmer vehicle. Oh, that's right, if you see thenaked gun, those those kind of laughs, those kind of jokes,so slapsticky kind of and of course, an idiot, you're rooting for acomplete moron who just seem like come out unscathed by the end of the movie. Should you know? I'm a moron, so that gives me hope, right, but I too can have some kind of crazy adventure and still bedeemed the hero. Imagine that. But any films out there, aside fromsnl movies, that you really like that no one else seems to give afuck about, or they judge you and think, why would you like thatmovie? I'll tell you, man. Yeah, well, I'll tell youspecifically my favorite movie about him. People often look at me sideways when Isay that my favorite movie is big trouble and little China, which you knowice. I think it's, you know, appropriately cheesy and s and whatnot,but it's a good adventure action movie. It had that s thing with theAsian culture, like everything was Ninja's and Chinese and all this. AndI know technically Ninja's are Japanese and and big Joe Little China is talking aboutChina. Of course I want to get a crucified by the PC police,you know. But but anyway, big little China. Back to what Iwas speaking about, Dude, I think big toe, a little China isa great movie. I mean, sure, it's cheesy and s but whatever.And people do kind of look at me weird. So I guess that'sthe only one I can really think of as far as movies that people lookat me weird for saying I enjoy so much. Huh. See, Iif you said something like canniball, run to I might, you know,Kinda. Yea, when set you a little bit in pain, you gowhy, why would you choose out of all fucking movies? But I meanbig trouble, little China, I can understand that. Yeah, I guessit's respectable. Yeah, it's a little John Carpenter directed. You know,he's you know, he's kind of hit or miss, but he's got agood reputation over all. Invented Halloween and yeah, here you go, setman. If you come to the Party and you say, Oh, Mac Ruberwas actually funny, people look at you, look at you and go, butyou are actually not, and that is not humorous. Get the fuckout of the party. Leave you drink down and get the hell out ofhere. So it's a rough thing to admit, you know, but I'ma little curious as far as to what the listeners might think. Is therea film out there, or not even just a film, anything in lifethat you seem to enjoy the other people might rag on you for? Ifso, reach out to us. How do you do that? It iseasy. You can follow us on our socials at selling out show or sendus an email selling out show at gmailcom. We want to hear from you.Nate, my worst nightmare, basically, is come to fruition. Dude,that's horrible news. It is terrible, tragic news, and I think anybodyin my age range, or just a parent in general, fears thismore than any other thing on the face...

...of the earth. Now you mightbe thinking something disastrous, cataclysmic. No, we're not going that far. We'retalking about getting a little down and dirty with your significant other and yourchild walking into the room. Oh my God, you don't want to tosee that. Sometimes I don't even want to see that. Right. I'venever videotate myself and my flabby ass doing the Hoochie Coochie Mommy while we orwhatever the hell you want to call it. No, because that's you know,we enjoy it, but it's probably not the best thing for someone's,how should I say this? Mental Health, especially at that young, tender age. Right. But now, all of this being said, I'm notentirely sure my son saw much, if anything at all, the eggs,in large part to my wife's quick decision making by slamming the door and hislittle face. Wow, mane, she was on top of that Shit.Huh? I was on top of her, yes, you, you are toup her, and she was on top of the situation. She wason top of the situation. Listen, this is all her fault to beginwith. Just to kind of give a little back story here. It's notlike I was the middle of the day or anything, but it's the morningand you know, you think, okay, he's gonna sleep a little bit later. It's the weekend, he's not going to wake up. You gotno school and I know I'm kind of pushing the boundaries on time here,but I horny. I need to get something done. And she, shesaid she locked the door. So once, once, the door is locked.Your good baby, you're safe. Absolutely many, I mean in abases are covered. Any your bases are covered. I mean worry a littlebit about noise. But still the door is locked. So what have you? And so we getting Jiggy with it and as you do, as weyes, and the door opens. Suddenly it doesn't open all the way.Now my bed is very close to the door, right. So how didI respond? You may be thinking like a turtle. I tucked my headback into my shell. I just pressed basically my whole body weight on mypoor wife. Oh my God, you buried your head in the sand likea like an off stretch. Yes, and thankfully she reached over with herHand Siam, it's the door, shut the doors, and he's like,what's going on in there? She'd like nothing, stay out of here,and I'm like, Oh core, Oh God, oh Christ, what amI gonna do? You're imagining the scars appearing on his mind. As hesaid, I don't want to yeah, I don't want to look him inthe face. I don't know if I can look him in the eyes again. I don't know what he did or did not see. You know.So I say this to my wife. I'm like, Oh, I'm soembarrassed. What the hell am I going to do? Well, she's like, go get dressed, I'll go out and handle this and I'll let youknow what happens. You know, I put my clothes back on and whathave you, and I'm thinking all these scenarios in my brain, like twentyyears from now my kid is going to be a high school dropout. It'sgoing to be like, Fuck You, Dad, he's all because of youand I saw your Segy Ball. Love. Are you hurting, mommy? Why? Yeah, there's something. I don't know what, just just evenhaving to answer any questions in the present. Right. Yeah, how do you? He's only seven. I can't, I can't do this. Yes,yes, the conversation. You're not prepared to have that early. Youknow, it's one thing when they get older and you, you know,maybe get the birds and the bees thing going, but chances are nowadays kidslearned that Shit on their own. Well, yeah, we're a friend, youknow, like when I was a kid. Yeah, I had afriend whose father had a massive porno consolutely. Yeah, that's how I learned aboutsex. was going over his house, him watching these videos that he wasn'tsupposed to be watching, and you know, that's that's a normal weightto yes, absolutely, you find a collection of porn. I mean andyeah, if you remember, back when we were kids, porn like magazinesespecially. I don't know so much about movies back then, but but themagazines could not show penetration and stuff. So it's like they didn't even reallyhelp a kid to see exactly how you...

...do things, you know. Imean a magazine only helped so much. But I remember once it was whenI found movies. They you know, actually that's where I got my education. was like, Oh, okay, that's where that goes and that's whathappens and you're not just peeing on a girl's private parts or something, youknow. Yeah, which is a really an honest question to ask, Iasked the same thing in sex education, like you just peels and things,and they're like only if she's into that. But it takes uspect kind of girl. But you know. So I didn't know what to do to getback to this story in hand, but I did. I ventured out.Yeah, I sat next to my son and on the couch and he's likeHey dad like hey, morning, how are he's a good, good,okay, this is going unbelievably well. Yeah, so I walk into thekitchen. I say to my wife, what happened here, because I don'tthink you saw anything. I think I slammed the door in his precious littleface in the nick of time and he was just more curious as to whyI slammed the door on him. Right and I told him that you werevaping in the bedroom. Now, my enjoy never vape in the house.Somebody's home, sure, but that was quick thinking. That's that's fine enough. That is perfectly okay, because you know, you know, I'll takeone fault against me. Yes, if it's more acceptable than the actual fault. You'd rather be seen as someone that's did a little vaping in the bedroominstead of yeah, we're violating the poor kids. Mother. As a teenager, I was smoking a joint in the bathroom one time. Right am mybrother came in and I was like get the fuck out of here, whatever, and then I'm like, oh, I'm so busted for smoking marijuana inmy house. Thankfully, he didn't know the difference and he told my motherI was smoking cigarettes. So she goes, why are you smoking cigarettes in thehouse? I Oh, yes, I am so sorry, I ambad, Demonis me. I've earned it because I was like, Oh,here we go, yeah, exactly. Got Away with one here. Yes, indeed, you know, so let out to lesser charges. Yeah,yeah, exactly, and that seems to be what happened here, thankfully.Excellence. I mean hopefully it's not something that's going to be like deep rootedinto his sight. Yeah, you know, dude, maybe lashback. Maybe healready repressed it. He just doesn't remember. His body, just asmine, just automatically like pushed it into the dark recesses. But I repressit and I the guy doing right. So yes, you know, Jeez, Louise, but I mean again, this is something that I think alot of parents worry about. You know, absolutely nobody wants it's weird enough forme to be in the act of Coitus and having a dog looking atme. Weird because, you know, we've got more animals than children inthe house, which, you know, it is either good or bad.I couldn't really tell you, but you know, it's one thing. Youfeel a little weird when the dog's kind of Cock does a cock when I'mtalking about a dog looking me have said you did well, you sure did. I feel dirty, even though there's no real reason to. But butanyway, the dog looks at me a little askance. I guess I'll usethat. Yeah, and I feel a little weird. But blessedly, herson has never walked in on us. And you know, which is strangebecause our apartment's pretty small, so one would think that it would be inevitable. But Yeah, we've been pretty lucky so well. The dog is probablythinking the same thing child would be thinking. Right, why are you hurting mammy? That's my goal back. Why are you pounding that? Yeah,that doesn't look comfortable. She must be in a lot of pain, youknow. Yeah, but I do, I fight. And why are youpunching it, owl man? Why are you doing that? Another teenage memoryI have, and I kind of related to this, is because I've hadtwo opposite reactions now. This time again, I buried my head in the sandand it's boo like went flat like...

...a paying k. But as Ithink I was sixteen or something, I was enjoying making love, will putit nice about making love to my girlfriend at the time and her sister walkedinto the room and at that time I leaped up and off of her likesome kind of tree frog from the Amazon and landing on the floor. SoI can only imagine she saw my little dingling mid air like the Matrix,slow, slow emotion, swinging back and forth like a cuckoo clock before Ihit the floor. And it's for my fight or flight. I'm telling you, it's really it's really been on point my entire life. Okay, nate, we got something new craze here, sweep in the nation. Yes,all the are hot trend. Yes, Hashtag whatever. It's called. Coronavirus. Who? Yes, it's the the flu dejure, if you will.Yes, it's on the menu right. Have the fluid is euro please.Yeah, and you know, it's one of those things that you can't escapethe news about it, no matter what you do. Yeah, there's alwaysone of them. It's either we had the you know, the swine flu, the burden blue, the eastern equine and CEPHALLETTUS. We had SARS.We there's always one. That's why this is yeah, yeah, it's justthe flu of the day, man. It is what it is. Rightin. The thing is I don't really worry about it too often. Yeah, and I say this not because I'm I'm ignorant, which is, Iguess is partially true. But at the same time I got that weird theoryabout not getting the flu shot. Yeah, I've talked about on the show beforeit. Like I my inners are right, made of like tank material. Now I my immune system is merged with cockroach DNA. So I willsurvive, but still, like, unless you're confronted with it, yeah,it won't bother you. But I work with the public right, right,every day, I in customers. Yes, okay, just to kind of alludeto what I do without saying what I do, because I want thatto be a mystery. Yes, let's keep a little little secrecy in yourlife, a little little mystery, right. Yeah, I'll talk about banging mywife and hiding from my kid, but I won't tell you what Ido for a living. That was no, you might personal, yeah, toperson, but you might see me out there in public one day.So you never know. If you ever won a an autograph or something,or if you ever just want a bitch, slap me at will. But thething with customers, it's a lot of times. They're brood their pricks. They're fucking assholes and they when they ask you questions, that cough,they don't cover their mouth. O my God. Yeah, it's awful.See, try. Yeah, you can hold your breath while you talking tohim, like m you know, I don't know, I haven't read thenose. There's a new virus out there in your confidence of my face.Yes, I don't know. What's worse that? Well, when you seecustomers come into a store or a public place and they're wearing the masks,like the surgeon lights. Those are everywhere nowadays. Yeah, all I got. Yeah, I mean, come on now, I mean, if you'regoing on an airplane up, how freaked out are you the moment you seesomeone wearing a surgey mask? You know, it's a little weird. You feellike you're in the movie outbreak or something. Yeah, yeah, exactly, worried. But they they wear them everywhere. And fucking China, Bro, like you see pictures of people in China. They're like everybody's. It'sweird to not wear them out there. But which, coincidentally, that's wherethe fucking coronavirus was starting, apparently. So Right, Oh man, goodjob masks. Yeah, right, nothing. Yeah, but I see him,I go to the doctor's office, which of course, is just likea big bowl of germs, going to the doctor's office. And Yeah,but they have the big sign and it says take one of these masks ifyou are showing symptoms of either a cold or whatever, a fever or coughor this or that. And so the masks aren't so much to protect youfrom what's out there, but it's more to capture your germs as they spillout of your fucking head holes, you know. Yeah, and so it'sbasically a courteous thing to wear them.

It's not so much that you're likeyou, I don't want to get what you got. It's Hey, I'mbeing nice and not giving you what I got. Yeah, you see,that's the big misconception here, right, because most people are wearing them fortheir quote, I quote, protect absolutely. That's what a lot of people do. Yeah, and there's a shortage. Yeah, it's hard to get themright now. So even me, if I wanted one, I probablycan't go buy have to wear my apat mask. My God, I havethe hose on it and everything. I'm protecting myself from coronavirus and corona meanscrown. Yeah, so what? Why? What does it have to do withthe flu? Is it like the King of flues? Is Like budwiseor the King of Beers? What's going on here? I think realistically,most of those names, a lot of them, are because of the shapeof the cell itself, for the bacteria itself. Wow, but look atyou. I'm with a knowledge. Hey, you know what, to be honestwith you, I'm I'm just kind of pulling that out of my ass, but I think I've seen that somewhere. But you know, okay, I'mnot pulling out of my ass literally. No, just know that your butthole would have to be the size of a dinner plate to do that. But I mean, even if you're not a hundred percent sure, that'sthe best explanation I've heard all day. And today is February, right on. So you know, I mean, come on, that was pretty dartand good, but I don't know. I don't know if I should continueto keep worrying about it. What I do? Do, what I do? Do? Do, do, do, do, do, do, do. That sounded stupid, but I say it anyway. Is I takeone of those immunity tablets, like the alka Seltzer style ones that you dropin the water, and I drink one every day. Oh good, right, airborne brand there, you know. So I won't get a flu shot, but I will have some Epper vescnce before I start my shit. Yes, and protect hisself. Look out, man, could be compromising your mightyimmune system. Your it's going to get lazy because you're putting all this effortvescenceinto it. The immune systems going to be like, oh well, Iguess I don't need to do my job so much. He's got this Gulfcovered with the the fizzy fucking drink. So I know I just related itearlier to a tank in a cockroach and here I am. HMM, thisis wildberry nosh. This is gonna all the nutrients. Yes, Fuzzy,and all the nutrients I need to get through the day. Bubbles, they'retickling my nose. HMM. Yeah, I can't wait to see nate's Butthole, the sides of it innerplace like Carrouna and is. Yes, now we'reall going to die in a firm. My goodness, it's the most wonderfultime of the year. You know why I was a is cadburry cream eggseason. Baby, they're back. Oh, you love them. Oh, Ican't get enough of them. I'm a fan of Oh, there's thistwo kinds of people in this world, people who enjoy cadbury cream eggs andthose who do not. Rites. And I think same time last year,Yep, on this very show, I brought up my love for Cadbury remix. So it's going. It's becoming an annual tradition and it's more like apublic service announcement to let you all know to run out to your stores,flues, viruses, what have you be damn emned stalk up on them deliciouslittle bastards. And let me tell you, coming from a guy who has thirtyfive years worth of caburry cream egg eating experience, by the boxes,not the loose ones. Yep, you're a professionalel. Yeah, I'm Iknow weird stuff about weird stuff. Hey, that's that's what we love about you. Well, thank you. And the reason why you should buy thebox, not the individual ones, is it said? I guess, atwo pronged reason. One, the foil seems to stick on them because theyleak. Yeah, that grows on. That happens. It's a little growyeah, it's tough to peel. And then the second thing. Sometimes thefoil even falls off and you can imagine...

...all these people with their grubby fingers, Du Yeah, Rache and in and touching. Y'All rucolate at right,at least you get the box. You know, if anyone's touching, it'sjust the outside of the fucking box. Man. Yes, Y, yes, exactly. So I stalk up, I buy a bunch of them.They're not chee. No, no, but I tell you, man,we are not even being paid by Cadbury. I think. No, I thinkthey have a good enough product where they don't need us, you know, schilling their shit. But we're just doing it out of love for thefucking for the product. It's yeah, I know it right, it isgreat, and that's one of those things where, you know, I lovethe partners that we do have, the product partners. Yeah, but ifcadbury ever came a call and and just backed up the truck and was likehere's a year supply of cadbury cream eggs, man, I might die, andnot a diabetes, I'm talking pure happiness. I might die of beingcrushed by that truck load of eggs fallen on me. Yeah, I could. Well, you should stand back. You know, it beaps the truckwhen it when it backs out, you know, right, a little beepingnoise. But but again, you know, it's made me think a little bitabout something. Is there are no generic cadburry cream eggs and if you'veever gone grocery shop, there is oftentimes you sacrifice, I guess, ina way, quality for price. Right, right, maybe it's hot dogs.Right, you're out there and this is no. Listen, this issomething I never fucking do. I'm very strict about the hot dogs I buy. They have to be all beef, you know, all whatever. Idon't want the lips and assholes. Yeah, so if I see someone and I'mshopping and they have like bar ass hot dogs in their cart, Yep, I think that's the kind of life you gotta have. You're a barslooking, you dude. You Know Your Dad said. You bought the ninetynine cent hot dogs. You're okay with all that? I don't know ifwe can be friends. Right, hey, hey, if that's what you wantto live, great, but you know, I just can't, yeah, associate with you. Sorry. Is there something out there that you wouldnever skimp on? H Nope, any okay, I'm sure amontizing. I'mone of those people that if you if there's a cheaper version of it,I'll fucking buy it, because I I'm not I don't know. I feellike I've tried most things in my life. I've tried the generic version and I'vetried the name brand, and usually there's not much of a difference.I mean, don't get me wrong, there are there are some things whereyou can tell the difference, but for the most part, Dude, I'mlooking for value. I've I've lived in places where I've eaten jail food orhomeless shelter food or whatever. Like. I've eaten some garbage in my day. So yeah, I mean, if I got a little extra money andI feel like splurging, I will, but I'm I'm the type of personman I'm like, Oh, they have a cheaper Walmart version of this,I'm fucking ring that. So, unless it's cadbury, because Cadbury doesn't evenhave one. But that's what I'm saying. They don't even have one. Thankful. Yeah, you know what I mean, because that's the kind ofsituation you don't want to put yourself in here. But what is your cutofffor cost differential? My God, Dude, I so I got product X andproduct why? Why? Being the generic and it's only, you know, so much cheaper. Well, yeah, that's a good question. If it'slike well, you know, the the generic versions only and ten centscheaper than Blah, blah, blah. Yeah, I don't know. Imean I'll usually buy. I buy a lot of iced tea mix, youknow, the powdered mix, the for sea or the lipped in, youknow, the Nix, and sometimes I'll buy the generic one and sometimes Iwon't, and there's usually only a fifty cent difference. So those are usuallybuy the name brand one, the lipped in or whatever. But I willsay this. Someone tip me off that the price chopper brand of ICED teammix is actually better than the name brand...

...one. So and that one youscore. You know, someone pointed out to me and I didn't believe himat first, but then I'm like, you know, if I could,I like I said, I have no shame about buying generic version. Soone day I tried it. I went out and the damn praises and Goddamn if they weren't right. Man, that Shit was there right, incredibleme. Yea, I'm sorry, I'm not trying to make fun of you, but we're talking about powder. But, like, I went for the genericpowder. This one is cut with aspir that's right, it. That'swhy it's so much cheaper. No, I mean that's such a minded.Think ampared. Yeah, like a meat product or oh, yeah, youknow what I mean. Yes, when we're getting at just animal products involved, and definitely if it's like flesh, you know, on generic flesh,you're buying generic fucking animal flesh. That's that does sound bad, you know. Well, yeah, I guess I don't know. I guess I couldadmit that. We talked about flash yeah, I'd probably go for the fifty hookerrun in the hundred dollar hooker. Yeah, the quality of the fleshhas to be there. Man, if you're at that point, yeah,I've already been drinking. You really can't tell the different friends, so youmight as well go with the one with the gravity issues. You know,sometimes, man, you know, you'd be surprised. Sometimes the cheaper versionis better. Case in point the yeah, the price chopper ice team mix orsally that's on main south and Worcester. She's she's cheaper than any of them. But yeah, really mean that. Lack of teeth makes a difference.You feel it, you know. Yeah, and she's she takes uponyeah, exactly, she's got. She's got the veterans discount. You seeyour citizen discount on Saturdays. It's got the the blue light special or whatever. there. You know, she's under the Blue Light. She's if lightdon't work, key's blankers, fucking up my cataracts. What a blow job. Yeah, but my point is she was charging less for not having teethand I think that's a fucking that's a selling point. I do want toremind you, though, a lot of people have no idea what price chopperis.

Dust up your lps in time for nate. No, no. Back in the S, as I've written about before, therewas a great opening up of minds as far as promoted music was concerned.A lot of strange, varied musical acts were being signed by major labels,and even independent labels were seeing unprecedented success. It was the age of alternative music, and while that term was already around in the s with bands likethe cure and rm, the past mode, etc. The S saw the wordalternative become primarily a musical's GNRA. I've mentioned more than once so overthe course of this show, that there was this huge paradigm shift in theearly s, during which time many a spandex clad and glam metal band foundthemselves shelved by their labels to make room for some dudes wearing flannel and rippedjeans. Again. Alternative bands existed and even got decent air played before this, but Nirvana came along and they were able to compete with like Michael Jacksonon the charts. This was different, of course. Then you had thewhole grunge phenomenon, Pearl Jam, screaming trees, Sound Garden, etc.which then opened the doors for skate punk bands like no effects and bad religion. In a short couple years, the air waves had gone from playing warrantand skid row to the offspring and nine inch nails and occasionally much stranger.Fair. And now we finally get to...

...the meat of this episode's nates notes. It took long enough to get there, but yeah, at some point inthe early S, after being reassured by record sales and eventually by thesuccess of the new Lallapalooza tour, the labels and radio stations started feeling braveenough to back bands that were further and further left of center. Nirvana andGreen Day were one thing, but they at least sounded like pop music.Behind all that stortion, suddenly I was turning on MTV and seeing back withhis weird production and psychedelic lyrics, or morphine, a band that consisted ofa drummer, a sax player and a singer who also played a bass withonly two strings. They didn't even have a guitar or keyboard or anything else. The former singer of s Icelandic Weirdo band the sugarcubes, a tiny elvishwoman with a huge and unique voice named Bork, was a new solo artistdoing some other worldly stuff, mixing electronic dance music with ambient textures, addingalmost childlike imagery and Icelandic sensibilities in her lyrics, delivered by an impossible voicethat can sound tiny and vulnerable one moment and the next you'd swear she wassome kind of fearsome beast. Bark is definitely an artist that doesn't sound likeanyone else, especially like any other acts on mainstream radio or MTV back then. Another example is Primus. Primus is a band that truthfully had more musicalchops than most of the band's getting big at that time. Less Claypool,the front man and Bass Player, is still the go to example of whata great bass player is. But they write weird music, man mind blowinglycomplex sometimes, but fucking weird. Then there were the presidents of the UnitedStates of America, putting out singles like lump and peaches, while playing onoddly tuned instruments that only had two or three strings, kind of like theaforementioned morphine. They might be giants, wrote unapologetically nerdy songs about science andShit. They're probably best known for doing the theme song to Malcolm in themiddle, but a close second would be Istanbul not Constantinople, a song aboutrenaming historical cities. I mean, novelty songs have always existed, but thes seem to have a ton of acts singing them. Remember detachable penis byKing Missile. Even tub thumping by Chumbawamba was a pretty weird tune. Andagain, what sets a lot of these acts apart is that they got airplayon stations that weren't just novelty or college radio. It seems kind of likein the s you had progressive and Glam Rock and disco and then Punk,which gave way to the s and all the new wave and hair metal groups. All these acts really seemed to take themselves super seriously. The Egos allfed on their own legends until the music industry became kind of a parody ofitself. So maybe by the S A lot of us were ready for somethingdifferent, we were ready for some humor, we were ready for something weird.And sure, there were still rock...

...and pop stars with huge Egos,and yes, there were a lot of styles of music breaking through, fromindustrial rock to skate punk to new metal, but I feel like part of theDNA of the s that sets it apart from the decades before is theemergence of a lot of Weirdos. In regards to your piece, yeah,I want to sing you two songs. Okay, first one, all Iwant to do is to thank you, even though I don't know who youare. You let me change things while I was driving in my car.Yes, yeah, Ye, Guitar and a second song goes something like this. MMM MMMMMMM. And when you start talking about these quirky s tunes andyou listen off a lot of them in those two in President's United States,you mentioned with lump just immediately pop into my mind. It's just he's weird. Yeah, weird tunes that don't necessarily define the decade, but we're veryimportant to it musically. Yeah, man, in like you, I don't know, it's weird. The songs you mentioned, I mean Gegy ta,that first one, the all I want to do is to thank you songthat. Yeah, that's song. I really enjoyed that album and and alot of these acts that I was mentioning, and specifically the two that you justbrought up. We're pretty much one hit wonders. You didn't hear alot of follow ups to those songs. Yeah, and I feel like thatsingle by Gegyita, that first one, was enough. That made me curiousand I enjoyed the music. I checked out the rest of their catalog andI really dug it and it's a shame that that was the song that kindof got them their only brush with fame, because they have a lot of talentand they're good and a lot of their bands, I'm sure, did. But Dude, the public likes a catchy song. That's a little funny. You can be like, oh, that's a weird song. He's he'ssaying. I want to thank you for letting me change lanes while I wasdriving, and I don't know that MMM came and yeah, that song bythe crash test dummies. That was them and those guys were really good too, but I know they're their catalog was full of songs like that Quirky LittleSong. They had a song about Superman, and you know that, whatever they're, all their songs were kind of novelty, singing about, yeah,Superman fighting Solomon Grundy, and you know they were both well, well beinga song, the other being the name of the band related to operating amotorn vehicle, crass this dummies and yeah, driving. So there you go.And imagine the fate of the crash test dummy here in two thousand andtwenty. Yeah, you might be talking to a Barrista getting your double Lotteand they say oh, so and so you go, Hey, before yousay my name, don't forget I was in crash test dummies, and theygo, what the fuck are you talking about? That'll be eighteen dollars andninety cents for a small sir. Right. It's yeah, man, nowadays alot of these people don't even know who these bands are. A lotof the public wouldn't even know who the crash test dummies, or specifically geggyTa, was. No, Oh, no, forget about it. Imean, unless you were famous enough to the point where you still have tshirts being sold. Yeah, target, yeah, we're Tar J. You'dyour band was not successful enough in the s. You know, I meanto the point where you would be remembered, and that's that's something that bothers mesometimes because when we were living it, yeah, we wanted to be rockstars because we thought it was your punch or punching a ticket into immortality. Yeah, you know, I'm gonna being the greatest band and people willremember my name. and well, now...

...and with hindsight, no, Iknow you could. You could have had a number one hit, you couldhave made millions of dollars and now nobody knows who the fuck you easolutely andthat's the thing that teenage dreams, honestly, childhood wonder too seriously. And Italked to people that are in my band with me and we'll get togetherand we practice. We're supposed to practice tonight. You know, I rememberbecause they said, hey, we're going to practice on February. So,yeah, I know we're past way to remember because it's February. Yeah,yes, so, but the other members of my band, some of themare quite young, specifically this one, this one member, she's think shemight be twenty one and she she's awesome. She's a great singer and she writesgreat music. We do a lot of covers, as I've mentioned before, but she wants to focus more on 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 make this happen and become a successfulband. I think we can do this and all is and yes, Iknow that's old. That's what I'm saying. The of course you need to havesome kind of a dream and you want to feel that way, butI'm this jaded dude and in its early s now, who's just kind oflooking back, going it's not gonna gonna be canap but I'm sorry, likewe're able, if we focus on what we're doing with a lot of familiarsongs to people, we can make some money doing this, which is good. Like we're actually able to make money doing what we're doing now, andshe's looking at it like, oh, we could turn into some kind ofrocks it like you and I used to do when we were yeah, sure, you know, she's just at that stage right now. So it's alittle funny to look at it from. But you know, now you're thejaded old soul who's like, listen, Babe, we're not about success,we're about scratch, fucking play this that whint. Okay, yeah, howcan we make money and get some Free Beers today? Yeah, exactly,and I mean you never want to squash somebody's mouser and aspirations, and maybeshe might go on, yeah, on her own, and become you know, who knows? I don't know. But the thing is, yeah,you've got to be realistic as well, because I'll tell you one thing.If you said to me, okay, Dave, you can be fucking I'mhere's a time machine. You can go be Geggy tale at the height oftheir success, when they have a number one song. Yeah, but thenyou can only do it for one day and then you'll never fucking have anytaste of, you know, success again. I'd be like yes, that wouldbe wonderful, I would love to do that. Thank you very much. I beat. That be awesome. That'd be the best vacation I've everhad, sure or ever will have. And so set your expectations according yes, yeah, I mean, yeah, so, and A. I don'tsay this is slight Geggy Todd. Like you said, they're very talented musicians. Right. But again, if you mentioned that to anybody, they mightthink you're having an epileptic seizure, not naming a band. Okay, yeah, exactly is its face drooping? O God, check for the signs ofa stroke. He keeps saying geggy top it is he smell burnt toast,exactly. So you know, the dream still lives on, though, forGiggy Todd, because US old sons of bitches talk about them on online radio. Keep you alive, keeping them alive, you know. But but still,you know, it's it's it's a rough road to travel when you whenyou've hit something that you think is the top of the mountain, the Pinnacle, and then twenty years later no one knows who the fuck you are.But I feel like they will always be the love in the public for acatchy, Quirky Little Song. Yeah, so if you can write one ofthose, maybe that's what me and my band have to do with the rightone little catchy song about whatever, something that everyone can kind of relate to, like maybe, fuck, who didn't replace the toilet paper roll on thisyou know, when they were the last...

...person to shit they left. Yeah, one piece of paper on the roll. Like us. Everybody can relate.Everybody can relate. Yeah, I think, though, if I takeanything from this addition of Nate's notes, is that for every never mind.Yes, there was also a novelty aspect to the nine s scene. Thatwas just as important. Yeah, man, just in a different way. Yep, Yep, absolutely, and with that we are becoming a novelty.We are tired, we are old, and you will see us on saleat your local spencer gifts. So with that, we got to hit theroad, baby, pack it up, Jack, put it in the back, you know. So read on right own. I want to thank eachand every one of you for taking the time to listen to our humble littleprogram today. Virtual hugs all around. I am Dave. That is nate, and this has been the selling out show. Who is addicted to thefight? I was first in line. That can screen whites.
