Do you frequently ask strangers to, you know, tickle you? Who is that? Even I know the least. How else am I going to get my laughs during the day of Hey's true, you metal tickle, and me I called you whack nugget. Yeah, I don't know, that sums it up. It's one big anything with a nugget. It's like I just feel like that encapsulates my might, being my persona. I'm nugget like. But well, yeah, I think you should definitely be printed on t shirts, HMM, worn by each one of us. I'm with you, as legate I I. I'm with the Whack Nugget, not me. I like dazzling Dave over there. No, let me take on me. So I'm Tobar. Yeah, that's those. Those, those are going a stick for long time. The wrestling names. Yeah, Oh, we'd be terrible. We be the worst tag team. Actually a tag team when it's got three people. Is there a special name for that? Is it's still just a tag team? There's I'm the wrestling nerday. So well, I still kind of watch wrestling in one company that they call him trios trio. Well, I never would have thought of that one. Yeah, that's that's different. Yeah, I call them Trios Leek as opposed to, I don't know, threesomes, because that sounds even more homo erotic than wrestling already. Is, yeah, but just sweaty dues. I can't wait until we're a trio and then I go underneath the ring, but you come underneath the ring and then we switch masks to you come out, but then you're reinvigorated and you you lay down some fucking whoop ass, I guess they call it. Yeah, I'm underneath, but I peek out a little bit in the camera catches me the like, oh, there's das Lin Dave, he's hiding. Ladies and gentlemen, we're like totally different body types, but they never oh, we are weird, totally on the opposite end of the spectrum there, that's for sure. I think I would be more nugget Esk than you, my friend. You were definitely more lean. You like an Aaron Chini in shape. You think so? Yeah, you know what? I don't know, arench, he's a tasty they tasty and I was almost going to take that as my nickname, but it doesn't doesn't fit, you know. So if Dave areon, Genie Dave are, that sounds like a normal person's name like that. That's a dude at the LAUNDROMAT who put too much fucking fabric software in the machine? I don't know. I don't know. But anyway, guys, what it's going on with you dudes? What's new? What's happening? What's with it? Toby, what's up with you, man? Have you been besides a co workers trying to, you know, give me the the virus? Everything else has been good. I think I might be be dying right now. I don't know. We'll see. We'll see in a couple of days. WHO's trying to French kiss you. Yeah, what happened? So I work in the old field and this guy, yeah, you know, it's it's the old field. You're okay, the men out there doing manly men stuff, and of course all these guys aren't really like gonna wear masks. And he walks up to me and he's not wearing his damn mask. Yeah, and because we're working outside and stuff, and he's just coughing and he's like, oh my got this bad headache and I was like oh no, wow, like okay, maybe he's just got a headache. You know what am I worrying about? This morning he calls it and well, he came...

...to work and he's like I gotta go home. I just I still have a bad headache. So now I've been paranoid all day, like do I feel sick? Is My head hurting? Am I so? Yeah, I'm stressing out a little bit. Yeah, I imagine, son, it sounds like. You know, I don't know, you might want to get a test, you know, keep the eye on things. But yeah, you guys are in the thick of Red State, mask denial, country down. Oh feeling? Yeah, yeah, it's real bad oil field guys, you know, fairly trump supporters. Here's something too, is toby had someone open mouth, coughing with it within inches of you, but you didn't distance yourself. I'm I got away. I was like, I'm gonna stand over here. How like you get away? What you know? Yeah, excuse me, I'm going to I'm going to punch again in the face. I took about four or five big steps away and I was like I got to work on something over here, which there was nothing for me to do is bullshit and get in away. But yeah, I mean, you know what, let's just say that there's not a thing happening all around the world. Like why would you come up to me when you're sick or not feeling good? Just can stay back right. Got To send me a text. I'm feeling crappy. Send asume with me. Tell me how terrible you feel. I just can't get over the fact that toby's like getting coughed on and he's like spittle is and whatever salive is landing on his face and he's like, I'm just going to step back, and it just end up landing on his chest instead. He moved back to steps. He's like, Hey, that's all I need to know. There's a skids and now you feel like Shit and now you think you're gonna die. Right. So I don't feel like Shit. Yeah, I think I'm. I'm just I don't know. I'm on the first thinking about feeling like Shit. That's what it is. I'm thinking I might be trying to get sick. I don't know. We'll sing, like I said, if I'm here on the next episode and I didn't die. You know, all right, you know I said something fucking terrible today and I'm going to freely admit it on this humble little program of ours. Confessional time. Yeah, totally. So let me in the little I've never been in a confessional. I've only seen him in movies. HM, so I'm just, I'm just, I'm just smelling a pine and I'm going in and I got to do a little little slide window thing. We're supposed to protect your nanimity, but realistically you can see through it anyway. So here we are. Doesn't protect your virginity either. No, anybody here or virginity. Catholic searches don't. So my job has been going fucking horrible lately, to the point where I just hate going to work. I it's just the worst situation ever. And if anybody has been in the similar circumstances when you just loathe what you do so much for living that you get not seen your stomach and you like God, what the Hell am I doing this for? I'm I'm doing this for you right now. And here's this is a legit noise. It's not a sound effect added after Oh, did you hear that correct? I'm actually yeah, I'm actually having a couple pops because what the hell, it's frank. The tank is back. Think let's go fucking streak the quad baby. But what I was going to say that those such a horrible thing for me to utter out loud was someone mentioned the coronavirus and what I do for a living today, and I'm like yeah, I can't wait to get it, and they're like what? I'm like, yeah, I can take a couple weeks off. I got money in the bank. I'm all set it financially. It wouldn't hurt me at all and I don't have to deal with this fucking shit for two weeks. It's like you're inviting it into you, is the yeah, but I I can't a movie. I know where I write it does, but it's not a scene out of the movie, because I can't like just run up to some like Oh, please, cough in my face like that book a flick it on me, lick the inside your mouth. I'm not doing you have but I'm like laugh it happens. I'm not gonna be like Oh bummer, and I mean I have a family to think about. I wouldn't want to come home and infect my fucking family or nothing. But this is how much I fucking hate my job right now. Yeah, I would welcome having a legit reason not to go for two weeks. Yeah, well, listen to this. I mean carly and my girlfriend, she works in with these not she didn't really work with them anymore, but she's had days where she's had to interact with them and she she has this whole get up with like the welder's mask looking thing. It's like this well, just a plastic shield and, you know, full body covering all this shit. She's like wearing a full body condom walk. I'm thinking like et. Yeah, you know, she comes home and like just dumps all their clothes in the wash. You know, she'd like everything's super like taking care of and like, but the thing is she sees how...

...these people are and she's like the people that are kind of flipping about it or whatever. It's like if you see some of these people in and even the ones that get better, it's like afterwards their lungs are fucked. It's like they've been smoking for their whole life, even if they're they've never smoked at all and like, because there can be damage forever. And but anyway, it's like I understand that. Yeah, that is kind of a lousy thing to say, but at the same time, like what you said, I mean, but at the same time, I spent those couple months in the hospital for my spinal infection and once once the pain started subsiding. Dude, being in the hospital for a while. It is was pretty damn sweet. I feel horrible about the fact that. Sometimes I look back at that time when I was in that hospital and I'm like, damn man, that was kind of that's kind of all right there handing me and killers all day. And Yeah, in the beginning there is no worry. Was thelotted and like it was. It was out of control and like sometimes I honestly I'm like wow, man, I was, you know, I pine for those days. Guys. Here's the other thing, right, is I was just given toby a hard time about his co worker, you know, getting too close to him or whatever. Yeah, and so, like I said, I can't. I couldn't jump in front of the bullet to get it. You know, it's almost like in a baseball reference, right, you know you're gonna get hit by the pitch, but you still jump out of the way, even though you know when you get hit you're gonna get a free base. Right. Right. It's like me, like, I still can't. I couldn't do that on a price, you know. So I'm joking, half joking but half not joking, and I understand, like what you're saying about how your girlfriend sees the people get ravaged by it and their health and worse. I understand all that, but I'm also under the notion that I probably have already had it and real what. You know, I'm an essential worker and I'm always out, yeah, amongst the people, since day one. Right. Yeah, I've never been able to quarantine or anything like that, so I probably one of those, you know, folks who had it just yet. No, carrier. You're a carrier, yeah, I am, but I'm delivering your mail. Can I just say that I never mentioned this and I feel like I should in this is totally off that topic, but kind of back to what I was just saying before, is I never mentioned like we have a listener on this podcast that's been a faithful listener the whole time. Her name is Melissa and she, yes, is super awesome, and when I was in that hospital for those two months, she came with her husband to visit me on the weekends, on like Saturdays, and Dude, she would make these amazing homemade meals and like she does all this, like she's like super healthy cooking and super tasty gourmet shit, and like then she'd make candies, Dude. She I don't know how much she wants her business being put out there, but I didn't say her name, her last name just now. So, but she's she's usually pretty proud of it. But she would make these thhc edibles, like but in I'm talking. It's also legal in my state, so it's not something to be ashamed of it. But but the candies were like these super gourmet would be like termer rick and Ginger and this, you know, all these flavors, Espresso and blah, blah blah, like just amazing. Dude. It was incredible and she was an angel and I don't know, I never did mentioned it on this podcast before, but I feel like I should. So I'm just throwing a shout out to Melissa out there. She she knows who she is and she's fucking awesome and we love you, we do. We did too much fun at the hospital. Yeah, you're supposed to be there for bad reasons. I haven't fun. I'm eating edibles like every day to I was. I was Ay, it made it tolerable. I'll put it that yeah, no, I, yeah, that's one way to go through the hospital anyway. Hell, yeah, man, see, I would have been the worst person for her to visit in the hospital because all the the flavor combinations and, you know, fancy ways of crafting food. It means nothing to me. But she would give me the option. She'd be like here, these are your options and you can combine this row with this row of things, like you would have found something you like to I'd be like, give me the fucking thing that tastes like chocolate. It's going to get me higher. Dude. I had a chocolate these chocolate candies that had like red pepper, like Cayenne peppers, so they had a spice tool. I don't need the Cayenne. I don't know. Cayenne is a stripper. I don't need that watch. I kind of do, but you get my drip, you know what I mean? Like you, she'd like Ye in, motherfucker. Yeah, she week Ian should be like, okay, here your options and, like you said, Tumeric and Ginger and and Lilac or whatever the yeah, it's get me the fucking shit that taste like her. She's yeah, that's at thought in a lot of work into him. I did. No,...

...no, I'm not trying to spare it any I know, I understand. Yeah, and I'm a meat and potatoes kind of guy. Yeah, I put some edible thc in my meat and potatoes please. Was a line from boogie nights where he's like I like lollipop in my mouth, butter my ass. Lollipop in my mouth and a simple guy. I'm a simple guy. That's it. I'm sure toby can relate to that. Now, why? Maybe I like the Lollipop in my ass. I'm completely backwards from that, are you? Are you so toby man? Other than being coughed on and stuff and possibly infected, which that's totally I don't know, brought us into the weeds a little bit. You know, working in an oil field. You know it's weird because you're like yeah, you guys can relate. You kind of made it sound like everybody understands what it's like. We're hadn't you know how the oil field guys are? You know, we have no idea what the fuck you talking about. You can be walking around with the clipboard, you could be knee deep in black gold, fucking pulling on something. Yeah, Texas tea, we don't fucking know. I know I forget that because usually when I say would filled. People are like, Oh, you work on the rig? No, I'm too soft to work on a rig. Like I'm basically like the meter made. For the most part, I go and check and see how much oil and gas the wells are making and if there's a problem with them, I there's a number of things I can do to try to make film produce. So, yeah, you're a fluff guy on a porn porn set. Yeah, pretty much as working. Yeah, he's like, we need to get more milk out of this bad boy. What can I do? Let me tackle here, do a little tug there, Big Pray Im. Oh yeah, I mean, okay, let's say an oil well is not meeting expectations. I don't know what the productivity would be required of such a thing, but let's just say it isn't. What do you do to make it work better? Talk to it, saying to it like. I mean, I try those things, but it rarely works. I mean, some of these walls you can shut in and they'll build up pressure by themselves and you can open it up. Sometimes you have to get like a compressor which will push gas down one side of the well. It'll come up the tubing side and it'll it'll help move the fluid, which will help move the the gas. And then I'm, like I said, there's there's a I could bore you to death with it, because it was learning a lot and it's not very cool, like it's really kind of lame, like and and it's not like a it's again, it's not the manly job in the oil field, like yeah, you gotta you gotta use your hands and some muscles, which I don't hardly have. But I'm the softest guy in the old field. Let me, let me put that out there, like I'm I'm seriously the the teddy bear out there and everyone's just kind of looks at me like I'm an idiot out there, like one of these things is not like the other. Yes, sunch a micro dirty jobs, guys with their hands all black and, you know, over all, the manager not wearing shirts, and then there's you out there, Toby's like I'm gonna pull this lever. Yeah, yeah, it's not bad though. I mean, like I was gonna say, if I can do it, anyone can do it, is what I was getting at. So well, yeah, it's always have math. You can do math. You can do it. With a calculator or mentally, yeah, you can use a calculator then. What the fuck? What am I doing here agonizing over my livelihood, drinking fucking chorus light over here like a fucking idiot, when I could come work with you? Is Any openings or what? It's? The job I have now is hard to get as it is. You basically have to you have to know someone that knows someone. was like a stain job, Kinda rights, like working for the fucking highway to pop it. But since the old fields not doing so hot right now, it's even harder just because you know, companies are going out of business and yeah, it's good time. Right now we're in one of those dips where the old fields not good. It happens like every I don't know for years. If you catch my drift, they're yeah, well, that's boys fucking so anyway, you know told me. We were talking a little bit earlier and there was something you was saying about how you get into a fight when you're a young guy or some kind of brawl. You know what. So there's a couple of like weird memories. When I was a kid and I'm and I was wondering if you guys had these kind of things, like where you remember something but you're like, man, I don't know if that really happened to me or if that was a story someone told me or if it was a fucking TV show us all. Yeah, but like one of mine. It was the first time I ever wrote the bus and I couldn't have been like I had been like eight or nine or something like that, and it's the first time I was riding the bus and I was already terrified because I've never done it before. HMM. And I remember they took us to the high school,...

...which scared me even more because the big kids and and I didn't ride the bus after this for like until I was a teenager, because I guess this frightened me so bad. I don't know, I just remember this experience. So we're sitting at the high school and I hear these people yelling out my window. So I look and one is this great big heavy set dude and this other just this like Pencil Skinny Guy, and they're pushing each other. Okay, and they start me and ate it. Maybe it was you guys. So anyways, they start swinging at each other and then the skinny dude does this like martial arts, like right out of a karate movie, like Spin Kick like over there and kicks the dude in the hell right, yes, and he just falls over. Wow. And like I remember being so scared of high school because I was like I'm gonna have to fight people. It's like blood sport. Of Yeah, let's but like a fuck, aren't you terrified? I'd be terrified about getting on the Goddamn Buss. He terrified. I go into school. What's going on here? I don't know. But Harry, but I don't know if I don't know if that was a real thing or if it was like a movie I don't watch because of how like weird it was. Like yeah, it's just it looked like something right out of like a mortal kombat movie, like this fucking Spin kick this dude did was like, well, it was John Claud van, Damn, or so school with Luke Kang Up, Damn, Oh God. But listen, here's the thing. Right, you don't know if this is a real a manifestation or a dream. Yeah, it be a dream, you don't know, but how real is it to you? I feel like it happened like I'm a hundred percent sure that it happened, but I but I beget it. But I'm again like it's one of those things where I'm like, I don't know. I think I got knocked out when I was a kid, like a little bitty kids. So the neighbor was going to mow our yard and he was he was like a teenager and I was a little kid and I was playing outside, yeah, and I was probably just being, you know, nosy and I was following him around and stuff, and I remember he pulled the the the string to start the mower and he elbow me right in the own nose. And I don't I remember standing behind him. Not Really, not real. You don't think that's real. Now that's like I see from like a fairly brothers movie or something happen, but I could I specifically. It's in this one. I'm like is it? Is it real or is it a movie? Where is it to what happened? Did you you woke up on the ground? You said No. So I remember like seeing like my you know, I was looking forward and then seeing the clouds and being on my back. But it didn't like it didn't do anything to my nose or anything. I wasn't bloody or anything like. I didn't have a knot all. I don't remember. Maybe I did, but that's all I remember about it. I don't remember anything else about that memory. So I'm Michael. That happened. I wouldn't be concerned unless you woke up litter with Butter Scotch rappers. Yeah, your belts of loose something. Yeah, weird. Not Person a little bit the like what the Butter Scotch? Where there's original GRANDPA, you can say it's gonna say any of those. Like getting knocked out. Like if it happens, there's always that confusion when you wake up and like I had this weird thing that would happen. What every time I would pass out and come to you because my friends and I, when we were young, we were stupid. We would do the thing where you bend over and hyper ventilate a lot and then you stand up and then you cross your arms across your chest and your friend put is really hard on your arms crushed and you pass out. Or eventually we learned how to do it by yourself and you just basically like choke yourself with your hands like you'd hype whatever. I don't want to give people ideas, but the point is we would make yourself pass out and it's really dangerous, of course, you know for I suppose, but I'm told. But it was a lot of fun. You always wake up and you'd be all confused and I've obviously I've lived a crazy life and I had a lot of times where I went unconscious from Druggis, you know, accidentally doing a little too much and I'm coming to, you know. But the thing is everyone around me would always say when you come to, whenever you're out cold and you come to, you always say something. It would be like I'd say I have an erection right now one time. Another time I said something like I would always be something weird and sexual, like I'm having like like I'd come to and I say something bizarre like that, like, you know, touch my inner thigh and Weird Shit. And that's exactly why I'm afraid to have like anesthesia or something...

...if I ever have to have a big surgery, because I'm just going to be like it's going to be a truth serum and like I'm attracted to leper cons and I'm yeah, I don't know, actual us, my secret. That's the true Seram. Is that really true? Like guns? Yeah, it's hell on the answerwebs now, buddy, only mackerel who gets terrify me. Okay, say whatever you want to say. If you're on anesthesia, it's really like, Oh my God, I hope no way it looks my balls when I've all sleep, because if you did, I like a lot. They don't really hear that shit all the fucking right. If you don't, excuse you, know you're you know, I'm not saving straight. That's got to be the best job, because you probably do hear some wacky ash shit. Someone's got to have a book out there of like just shit that people have said to them, like going under or coming to. Well, I will have you both know, on this very program I have discussed surgeries I've had, one of which was in depth about my my hernial Mesh surge, right, and the fiasco that ensued. But I don't know if I did bring this up at the time, but I will say it now. was they had a couple young doctors in training. Okay, I don't know what you call them, interns, right? Maybe? Yeah, they look students right or whatever. Bold hot as hell, like okay, yeah, and and so like the whole time. I know, yeah, they gonna see me bear ass, you know. Yea, I know it. I was a little concerned about it going in, but then I was like yeah, once they give me the happy juice, right, who cares, because it's like we like we just said the season doctor here's all this crap all the time, right, and whatever, but it's almost like taking to somebody's virginity, right, if you're somebody's first, you want to leave them with a good experience because they canna remember you forever. Right. So maybe these young girls, I was the first, I know, gaping butthole. They sauce for all then on a fucking table and they remember that for like the rest of their days. I don't know. I'm just like, drink it in, ladies drinking, so get up. But I have that's my fear, though. I don't want to be like, you know, the two interns you're talking after being, you know, doctors for ten years of like, Hey, you remember that tiny penis guy that kept like mumbling about having sex with gorillas? Like like, I don't want to be that guy, micro penis oil field guy. Ever, am I'll tickle me, toby. When I was again, the same thing was in that hospital, when I was in the actual hospital, before I got to the nursing home part, I I was like, I couldn't do anything, I couldn't wash myself. I can do it whatever. So the nurses would like they'd be like stand up, I'm standing with a Walker, like to hold myself up, and they'd be like opening my Johnny, sponging me down, like it was very humbling, dude, like they'd be like washing my ass and like balls and Shit, like I couldn't do anything. But you know, I'm at that age now. I'm not an old guy, but I figure I got a jump on that age. Yeah, you don't give a shit. You know I'm right, whatever, man. But was it like us when they washed you? Was a delicate or was it very violent? Real good did they get? You could tell she she was being gingerly about it, but she was. She was she was effective, efficient, she's hot. That was the humbling part. Is, like all these nurses were super hot. R I was like, I mean again, that made it even a nice again. I'm like sitting there, husband, but all these hot chicks are like walking around and like catering to my needs and be like hey, give me a coffee. This we had, you know the ass, grab me a coffee and scrub my under carriage, Darling. Yeah, I need that all shouted, delotted and from Lounge. Bad fucking toby just said toots. So I was so, you know, you work in the oil fields, but you might as well work on a fucking construction site New York City. One thousand nine hundred and eighty five fucking comment like that. Eight toys. Can you whistle, Nice Gams? Lady Nice Giam, I can't. Was Guys, I'm fucking I'm dying right now. Yeah, I'm looking at this, I because once I'm done hanging out with you gents, I got a fucking pay my electricity bill. What do you guys normally pay for like electricity per month? You Think, Oh, okay, look at we're in September. Yeah, so this buills from the month previous, so August. What do you think you pay for electricity in the month of August? Jesus down there, when you're using AC and well, yeah, I use AC all day every day. But okay, so maybe toby can relate you. Toby, what what do you expect to pay? Well, I had an extremely high electric bill like two months ago. Like it was. How much was it? fucking just tell me. More hundred and fifty stuff. Fuck Guddy, I don't know how. I have no idea. I think someone had to...

...have been like hooking up they're fucking entire neighborhood to my house. It was insane. Set of stealing your cable, they're stealing your power. They just haven't yet. They they have a line right from my roof to their's. Like yeah, but you leave in like the the AC on when you're done all day. or in fairness, this was when my kid was staying at home. He was staying over here more than at his mom's, and so I was leaving the air conditioner on for him and I was trying to make sure it was cool, cooler, chilly, Willie, what the WHO? He's a penguin. He's actually a penguin. That's gonna say. fucking frigid, usually, usually in the summer, it's like to ten or so. Two told my mine right now, and this is the one I'm grimacing over as I look at it, is two hundred and seventy one and thirty seven fucking sins. That's pretty yeah, you know, I was like, what the fuck, I got the money, I'm going to pay for it. But like when it bills that high, because normally my bill, even during the summer, is like a hundred and eighty, hundred ninety bucks. So I know I'm fucking like really, you know, fucking getting angry over a small amount here when you look at the big picture. For All those rich motherfuckers out there, like, oh, dude, with the fuck man bitch about fucking eighty bucks. But I am here's a deal. When you have the money, you just pay it. When you don't have the money, you fucking call you say hey, why the hell is my bill so high? Right, but I got the money, I'm gonna pay it because I don't want my fucking electricity being arrears.

...brother's in town visiting, so I'm here at my folks recording as I do. I come here to record and it's my my studio in my old bedroom, as I've mentioned before on the show but my brother's here, which is cool. He's from Colorado and I didn't get to see him this year because I usually go out there every year to go skiing and veil with him where he lives, but this year, with the virus and whatnot, I couldn't. So it's nice to see him right. But yeah, but this weekend I at home. I'm flying solo because carly is in New Hampshire. She drove with the dog, with our Doberman that we got a few months back, or like she's like a year old now. But anyway, she she's doing a dog show, because my life has become, you know, dog show. It's like that movie best in show, that Christopher guest movie, like right, that that sh it's pretty accurate. Man. People are pretty psychotic about their dogs. But but anyway, our Doberman is actually she does pretty well at shows. So the virus had all the shows closed, but now she's they're opening backup, so she's going back to shows. And but I mean I'm at all like Trott and a circle, like what is it like what you see on TV? Yes, yeah, they'd go in the circle, they go up and down. They the judge has to come inspect them, like they open the mouth or the teeth, do all this shit. The judge is like, yeah, man, it's pretty, it's pretty. I don't know how you call it politically and correct in these days it's kind of like a beauty pageant, you know, where you're like are you objectifying that Dopeman? That's disgusting. You're judging her based on her body shape. I'm thinking about dogs doing it to us. Yeah, man, like putting us on a podium is in some dog judge comes up with. At Ly, see his gums and let me see his teeth, and it's grind to claw. Yeah, yeah, so well, that's cool, man. You you dogs in a win something, hopefully, and then what do you get? Money, you do eventually, man, the people like right now we're still at that point where it's like you're paying money to get into it, but to get into the show. But some of the shows she's getting into now do have cash prizes and you know when a few hundred bucks, and then eventually you get to a level, if you've win one enough, your credentials are high off where you can enter the ones that are really, you know, the high stakes and you can make good pyramids game. Yeah, man, pyramids, you must thinking more like a boxing set up. Like you to win your competition is to go up the ranks tournament. Yeah, it's like a like the brackets, you know. And now it helped. It doesn't help with like, like if you breed dogs and stuff, like, yeah, your dog more valuable, like, Oh look how beautiful my dog is. You. Yeah, the breed with it. The girl that cold fug got ours from, the girl that we got ours from, is a breeder. She constantly, not constantly that it's not like a puppy mail like. She's very respectful. She's a good dog breeder, but she definitely has experience now and like I'll go visit her and she'll have all these puppies. They're adorable, the little dobleman puppies. But she has started to make a name for herself, like she's actually bred some champion dogs now, and the more we got our dog with the agreement that we would show her, because she's like, you know, the more of her lineage that wins are gets into it, the better it looks for her. So she's yeah, she's becoming a pretty respected and breeder at this point and we are going to breed ours to, you know, eventually, and people pay like thousands of dollars for doblemant puppies. Student's kind of a rack which people pay me that much for my puppies. She's pure, though. It's like, you know, she'll be in the heat and Carlie's all like, don't let her fucking out like some some dog. Don't let her out, you know, like because some dog down the street. You'll try to bang her because she's in heat, like showing her pussy off and like, well, like only breathe with these, you know, we're very basic's gonna gonna sit there. She's like at the door.

Oh my my brother's in town, like I said, so we're right hanging out a bit. I can geek out with them. We can like watch movies and play video games, because we're we're like man...

No, no, I've done segments before about the music scene of the S and how suddenly the air waves were filled with the sounds of, quote, alternative music. There's a relevant interview with Janie Lane, the late singer of s hair metal band warrant, that sums things up. He recalls going to a meeting with a rep from his record label and noticing that on the walls of the labels office, which we're always adorned with posters of his own band, Warren, they were suddenly covered with Alice in chains posters. Things kind of changed overnight. The S saw the rise of Weirdo acts like back and York Primus in the presidents of the United States of America. Suddenly the record labels were all looking for the next big thing. In tiny clubs and the garages of homes in the suburbs, warner brothers found their weird one or Kins in Oklahoma City. The flaming lips were a strange psychedelic alternative act that had been fighting it out in their local scene since the early S, and now, about a decade into their career, they had their big break. Their first major label record had some issues with clearance for a sample in one of their songs. Which delayed its release and ultimately the album hit to death. In the...

...future. Head came and went without much fanfare. Their second record for Warner brothers, however, called transmissions from the satellite heart, produced a classic single that blew up and made the acquisition of the flaming lips seem worth the risk for the big label executives. The song was she don't use Jelly, a catchy yet bizarre little tune with silly sing along abowl lyrics and a fuzzed out guitar line that embodies the alternative esthetic of the time. The song got so much recognition that the flaming lips got a guest appearance on Teen Soap Opera Beverly Hills nine hundred and two hundred. It was a strange experience for this group of Grubby dudes from Oklahoma that just like to drop acid and play psychedelic guitar rock. It just illustrates how big the alternative music scene had gotten by that point. Anyway, the label's hopes for the lips were high and before long it was about time to release the follow up to their breakout album, but alas, said album clouds taste metallic dropped with kind of a thud. It's a good record, but it didn't contain another hit. Lah She don't use Jelly, and thus it didn't Garner much label support. The lips were still signed, but they worried that they would be dropped, as happened with many a one hit wonder type band. To the band surprise, however, they managed to stay under the radar and the label kept them around. Around this time, in the mid to late S, their guitarist left and rather than finding a replacement, the lips just rolled with it and kind of worked around it. They began doing these sort of avant garde performances. In the quote parking lot experiments, the band got a few dozen volunteers to sit in parked cars and put prerecorded cassette tapes in the cars stereos. Lips singer Wayne Coyn would conduct these volunteers like an orchestra, telling them when to push play on the tape players in and to adjust the volume, etc. In the boom box experiments he did the same, but the volunteers were using boom box tape decks instead. They produced an interesting effect that gave the band inspiration to create their next album in a unique format. The flaming lips worked with producer Dave Fridman on this ambitious project. They actually built a studio in order to make sure they had complete creative freedom and could do what they needed for the release. The record was called Zierereka, a combination of the words Zire and Eureka. The album was released as a four disc set, the idea ultimately being to play all four disks simultaneously, but it can be experienced using three discs to or even just by playing disc one alone. Disc one contains the majority of the music, but the other discs add sections of harmonizing sounds, additional instrumentation, etc. If you listen to the accompanying discs to through four individually, there are sometimes sections of silence before a piano line comes in, for example. Again, disc one is basically the album, but ideally the the plan is to play them all together, with a couple friends needed to hit play on the added Stereos. Most folks didn't even own CD players. So as ambitious and impressive as Ziareka was, the public didn't really respond and Warner Brothers were confused on how to even market this thing. In order to get permission to try this experimental release. The band had agreed to record a second album on the same budget they got for Ziareka. They were in for the long haul and kept on working in the new studio they built with Dave Fridman. With the departure of Guitarist Ronald Jones, they knew their sound was going to be different. Jones Guitar playing was a huge component of their sound and now he was gone. What does a band do in that situation? They could have found another guitar player who could Mimic Ronald sound or could even bring a new style to the formula, but instead they decided to go on with...

...just the remaining three members, the aforementioned Wayne Coyne, Michael Ivan's and the super talented Stephen Droade. They began working on this new album, dubbed the soft bulletin, while they worked on Ziareka, and the two albums sound fairly similar stylistically, but the soft bulletin was easier to digest, being a single album that only required a single listener to hit play once on a single CD player. Working without their longtime guitarist, the idea became to write songs that weren't centered on a guitar line at all. They played with synthesizers and Mellotron's keyboards and samplers. They used prerecorded tapes of sounds and physically manipulated the tapes as they played on an old reel to Real player, messing with the speed and the clarity of the old recordings as they were mixed from those tapes into the new material. Nowadays there are all kinds of tricks and techniques that bands and producers use in the studio to manipulate sounds and samples, but at the time this was all pretty revolutionary and the resulting material was quite unprecedented. The soft bulletin is miles away from the days of their big hit. She don't use Jelly. The soft bulletin is comprised of sweet orchestrated melodies, stuff that sounds almost like music for a Disney movie, but composed on a head full of acid, and at first the label exacts were skeptical at best. The big change in the sound the addition of rough prerecorded sounds into the songs Wayne Coin's imperfect and scratchy singing, especially with lyrics about bugs and grocery shopping and other strange and psychedelic subject matter. It was all a bit confounding to these suits at the label and truthfully, it took a while for the public to open up to it. When it was released, it was a big shift, not just in the sound of the band but of music in general. But by the end of the year the soft bulletin was topping best of lists in being touted as the masterpiece it is. Since that time the flaming lips have released several more records, doing things their own way and getting more and more recognition and accolades. They've not only created their own place in the musical lexicon, but inspired others to make similarly psychedelic music and kind of reshaped the indie scene almost single handedly. Again, the records the flaming lips have released since the beginning of the two thousands have all been pretty well received, and I could talk a lot about the record right after the soft bulletin, Yoshimi battles the pink robots to as that record may be more popular and critically acclaimed than any of their other work, but it all started with the soft bulletin. That record arguably created the band's current persona complete with bright and colorful live shows, performances with dazzling lights and plush animals dancing around the stage, human sized hamster balls that Wayne pilots over the crowds like a unique form of crowdsurfing. The band is legendary for their live shows now, and it all fits perfectly with the style they created on the soft bulletin, a style that defied expectations after losing a foundational member and basically having to start over, a style that fuses trippy Psychedelia with a childlike sense of wonder, a sound that is uniquely their own and that brings joy to millions around the world. The soft bulletin may have been the flaming lips ninth studio album, but it basically started at all. Truly a classic record. Amen. Brother, Amen, can't argue with you there. Yeah, you got me into that record. De vut were like big into them, and remember it was like the year two thousand and it was weird, the weird time. Yeah, that album was kind of part of our soundtrack and we'd like just get baked and listen to the soft bullet and like well, Zayureka. Yeah, I got that record and I remember borrowing CD players from my neighbors. Yeah, you know, it can be fairly unlistenable at times because you're supposed to be sinking when you hit play. So I think, you know, kind of works together, but you think of it as excusable and being unique because there's a lot of...

...drugs involved. You know what I mean? Yeah, yeah, like sometimes they don't sink up perfectly exactly and it's just kind of like, well, it's experimental, that's all it's like, you know. But the soft bulletin was, like you call it a classic. There is no other word that does it justice other than that, I mean, other than being legendary. Yeah, man, but I didn't know you're coming with that topic tonight and I had just read an article because the flaming lips just release a new album called American head right, and Wayne Coyne was interviewed in rolling stone and I was shocked to realize he is fifty nine years old. Yeah, man, he's been at it for a long time, a long time. And the second thing I found amazing was he really doesn't like LSD yeah, he doesn't do drugs at all really, I mean, or not much. I mean that's from what he says. Yeah, I was like do this guy's could be freaking you gonna have a Peyote in an IV. You know what I mean? When you listen to the music, the sounds, the lyrics he comes up with and everything. Yeah, now he thinks is terrifying. He doesn't like it. Yet here we are. Maybe, you know, his young followers would like we got a fuck it, drop some acid, listen to something. Name and labs by very. They're their main songwriter, the Guy Stephen Droade. He's like they're the one who does most of the writing. He he has had a long struggle with drugs over the years and he there was like an old documentary called the fearless freaks about the flaming lips, and you can watch it and it was all behind the scenes this and that, but there's a whole segment about him shooting up and him just being like casual about it, because when you're an adict you don't think it's weird, it's just what you do every day. So he's just kind of like, you know, this is my morning, and he kind of like goes through it like he's making an Omelet you know, he's just kind of like I mixed this and this, and this is what I do, and he's just, yeah, shooting up on screen and he was. He was a real mess for a while. And there's just quickly. There's a song on the soft bulletin called the Spider Bite Song and the lyrics are like when I saw that spider bite on your hand, I thought we would have to break up the band. And it's all about how, yeah, Stephen Droade had this spider, but he's like, yeah, spider bit my hand and his hands got so infected the doctors were talking about having to cut off his hand. And so Wayne Coyne wrote this song about how sad he'd be if he lost his hand and we couldn't make music together anymore and it would just really be horrible. And it turned out way later that it was his spider bite. It was an abscess from shooting up in his hand and he almost lost his hand from it. And Wayne Coyne had written this beautiful song about, you know, how a spider bye bit his hand and all this, and he would tell that story in front of crowds like everywhere, and it interviews and all this, and then it turned out now it's just where he was shooting up and he almost lost his hand from being a heroin addict and like but yeah, he's. Yeah, could I add one more thing? I know, I's just like wow, I was wowed and amazed by these two facts. Yeah, he's. Another thing I find quite spectacular is in this day and age, in two thousand and twenty, where we have music so accessible to us where we can get it anywhere. I can talk to his speaker on my desk ask it to play anything. So you wonder how the music industry truly functions anymore properly. They have been on Warner brother records for thirty years. No, holy's crazy. Thirty fucking years. And you go, okay, that's one thing. If you were and I'm just going to name Bandon Bon Jovi, right, right, there's a popular band. Mom's know what, Grandma's know what. Everybody knows who the Fuck Bon Jovi is. But we are talking about an act, artists that have pushed the boundaries, yeah, of music and sound since they're inception. Really Right? Yeah, they are with a major label to this fucking day. That is something else. You Hope, if you hope. It doesn't even give me hope because I don't even know, listen, I mean think about all the bands that you love, Toby Natan, and they might have been on a major label back in the day, and even not even a major label, but under the umbrella, let's say, like interscope or something like that. Right, yeah, now they're comping on prints, imprint, thank you. Yeah, right, but now they're pumping out their own shit on their own label or just online, whatever they need to do to get their content out there. And these guys have had the backing of this major fucking corporation despite again just being come be onch Weirdos, Weirdos because they normal folks don't understand them. Yeah, I mean if you say, Oh, if you heard the flaming lips, how many people do you know on the street we go, yeah,...

I fucking love them, very, very few. When you find another flaming lips fan, you know. Yeah, you, you, you know what I mean. Yeah, so draw some crowds nowadays, though. They do play some big, big places, although they're I don't know, I guess it was during that Yoshimi battles of pink robots period. They really got huge for a while, but it's kind of died off a little. But they still play some pretty big festivals, big venues and, like I said, it's their live show. It's so impressive you can't. I did. Can't ignore it, you know, and I get easy. I'm just saying. They're not like a fucking name brand. You know what I mean. Yeah, and you didn't go see them when they played like five minutes from Your House. Yeah, as help. Couldn't. Couldn't fucking deal with the traffic. No, thank you, I don't give a fuck if you're in the pope, it doesn't matter me. fucking no, I ain't putting up with that Shit. Yeah, now toabster. You know me and nate. We talk quite a bit about the flaming lips on are off the air. Yes, I've known. What are your impressions of the band? You've noticed? What do you think? I mean? I like them. I tried to tell you guys that my favorite song was bad days, and I got scolded for it. Yeah, now he gets scolded by me. What are you saying? By me? When Daddy Dave was was tell dazzling Dave, and when did I scold you? Know, how did I scold you? You just you you told me that that's not the best song and I told you it was and you said no, he was probably just doing it to be a contrarian. Know, they like like you like, I like bad days. He's like, that's the worst fucking song. I didn't even go that far. I was like, no, that's not my favorite song. Yeah, no, I did write. No, bluntly, yeah, but that's eating me. But it dude, how is that scolding? My feelings were hurt. So if you go in the fucking supermarket and you say, Oh, do you have marshamallow fluff, and they go no, you don't my feelings going in here, that my feelings might get hurt, you don't understand. Well, okay, you precious. We're road to FUCKING DIFFERENT Cup opinions. Of course we're a lot. I'm just saying is, you know, is tough because, okay, maybe I was scolding you, because listen here, think about this. Like in they could agree with me, and I'm sure you can agree with me about bands that you care about or you like. It's like if someone comes to me and says, Oh, David Bowie, I love that space oddity. Oh my God, you're like that's an amazing song, but dude, look at his entire catalog. Right, of course. Let's start. It took you know, and everybody, like nate just said it, has a personal favorite. But when you choose like a popular song or something might have been in a movie like I love, do you realize whether flaming lips, you know, there were a huge song? Yeah, but that was a great fucking song. It's a great song, but I'm just saying that's like, you know, yeah, they so this. There's no wrong choice, but you also want to kind of open the doors to people to see this stuff exactly like you think. That okay, cool, we'll come on in, join the club. You Laing a one you like more, we will give you a membership card, okay, a funny little hat, whatever you need to keep you here, because there's so much more to explore exactly. You know, it's good. You were telling you were talking about how they did all this experimental stuff with like boom boxes and stuff like that. One of the bands that I like called the the sixty eight. They actually release a music video a couple of years ago to where you had to play two separate youtube videos because there's only two people in the band. One guy plays drums, the other Guy Plays Guitar and sings, and so one one video is just the drummer and the other videos just the the vocals and the guitar. So he had to play them at you had to sink it up and play them at the same time to actually hear the song, and that's think that was the only way you could hear the single that they release. So you couldn't like, you know, it was a trustrating, irustrating, but at the same time you're like me, it's good, fucking cool, but it's like work for it. Yeah, it's like, well, they've kind of bands have done that before, like this isn't anything new. But that guy, he was in another band before that called the chariot, and they their first record. They did it like it's all one take. So you can hear like the guitar like scratches and stuff like that. Like it's not polished. Yeah, it's not polished and it's for some reason it's beautiful. They they ended up rerecording it, you know where it sounds really studio heavy. Yeah, it's just I can't listen to that version right, I don't. I don't like the polished version. I like the ones that are kind of gritty. So, man, it's kind of meat. I wonder, I wonder if there's any influence from, you know, the flaming lips. May So it was a unique thing. Yeah, those, those experiments were pretty cool. I remember reading about him. I never imagine getting to go to those. I must have been cool. It's like I was in car twelve hitting play. I'm a fucking car starry. Yeah, back in one thousand nine hundred and ninety seven or whatever it was. But you know, it's interesting, and I was not aware...

...of this until you mentioned it just now, how they agree to make the soft bulletin on the same budget, on the same budget, because they were just going fucking out there. Because, I mean, listen, if you were an exact if or anybody of sound or right mind. Yeah, let me said You, okay, we got this idea. You're going to push play on for fucking disc at the city. You know, you'd be like, we're not going to make a fucking dime off this shit. Yeah, there's no way in fucking hell. Like that's so selfindulgent. No, no, exactly so. But then not only did they get the label to agree to that, but they also created one of the greatest albums of all time. Sure, in the same fucking wow, that's same sessions. Same built a studio to handle it because they knew a regular studio it would have charged them so much money to try to do Zayorek and try to, you know, put it on all these different discs and all this. So they built a studio to do it so they could have the freedom. And look at that, just like toby mentioned, you can do it on Youtube now. Sure, yeah, wow, that's something else. All right, guys, I gotta Start Aheading home. I he'll be a no, you go nowhere, you go nowhere. But I listen, I understand.
