ABOUT THIS EPISODE

I just over indulged myself with a large amount of soup, making show notes incredibly hard to write. But, I'm a warrior so I will press on...my keyboard. What happens on this glorious new episode of The Selling Out Show? For starters, Dave breaks a decades long personal streak that involves public rest rooms, the gents wonder if education is wasted on the young which turns into being pissed over the frauds at Fox News, and Nate takes a look at the public stigma of being a poseur. Included in that discussion are the band Tramp Stamps, Tekashi69 and Steely Dan (well, kinda). Listen to the episode, your brain stem will thank you.

My I get something terrible to tell you aboutthat happened to me this week. Oh boy is, or one is tragic, scarringemotionally physically and I wasn't maimed, I wasn't assaulted, nobody washurt in the making of this story, except for yeah. Well, just wait just wait. You See.

Let me let me start this whole thingoff by letting you find folks out. There know that I am a sucker for thosebig ass bags, a popcorn. You know what I'm talking about nate I do, and I alsoam aware that you like them, because I remember I've- need for a long time allmy life. If I see a big bag of popcorn somewhere, I'm like Oh, I got to buythat like it used to be at the gas station. You'd see the yard stick fullof pop corn, the long narrow bag. I forget exactly what size it was, butthat's where it all began for me, my addiction to the popping corns and now,if you go to a Walmart or another grocery store, you see these bigfreaking. You know you right, it's not good for you. You know what it is I,but you just can't help yourself man, I didn't you yeah quickly. I know thatyou're into popcorn of all stripes, you like you, had a popcorn maker for awhile, if I remember correctly- and I still do you're just a popcorn dude- Iam- I just can't escape it. My whole life so now that we established that I boughtone of those big suckers. I brought it home as watching a little magnum Pi,and I just realize I'm shoveling this stuff into my mouth. I mean there's nostupid butter, everything yeah, whatever the hell is on it, whatever itis, it could have been o lean and it probably was the way this story isgoing to go. Trust you me, and for those who don't know what Olen is youfeel free to google it or know that it was a chemical or an additive that wasadded to pringle's chips in the s that made everybody violently ill to thepoint where the pringles company got sued. It was so in a leakage in the most violent manner yeah it wasterrible. It was like you know. It wasn't as big, for example, as thecorona virus pandemic for S, but for those who lived it and survived it,they might kind of like think about it in the same light as far as how jarring it was. You know what I meanthe same, exactly like W e. You say O lean to someone. They cringe. Oh Boy,yeah, oh boy. Yes, it was nasty stuff. So anyway, some was in this popcorn andI was feeling some serious discomfort for many days afterwards and which, which was okay, because I wasn'tworking at the time I was home and I'm like well, what are you goin? Do I I'msuffering for my love of the popincourt. I you know I deserve this is is what Iget yeah, but then one day I got to go back to work and I work with the public. I'm notgoing to say what I do, because I like to keep people guessing sure, just hearmy voice and imagine what I do. Ah, I'm out in the wild with the rest of you,you folks out there and anyway long story short or long story long.Whichever way this turns out my stomach stares boiling over, I feel somebubbling some Gurglin. Some may right to the point where my butt hole wasangry with me. So here I am doing my job and my asshole basically just startsfluttering. You ever have like one of thoseuncomfortable twitches in your eye ball and you like, Oh my God, people aregoing to see my eyeball freaking out. Well, that was my bung hole. It's likea convulsing yeah, exactly it was really just like convulsing in hearingat my shift is almost over soomething and just keep your ass whole shut onemore out to go. You can do it baby, you can do it. Keep Your Ass Hole, shut!Watch that PALPITATING ANIS! Yes, but this is my mantra right. This isgoing through my head, but it's not working. It is something's cooking andit's coming out all I exactly so at this point I'm like this is this: iscrisis mode, something something's going down, and I take it's a matter ofpride for me, yeah that I haven't used a public restroom to do a number two inat least twenty years, at least ever since you start train spotting in thathorrible way. It's almost like the old Seinfeldepisode where he talks about he hadn't vomited, since n thousand nine hundredand eight right. That was me yeah it...

...was that keep you. I think I, with shipbreak the character from American Pie who would not use a public toil? Okay,it would leave school to go home every time you had to go and was ring. YouKnow Er, I'm glad you just added that to the conversation, because that'sbasically how I live. Okay- and I'm happy about this- so I'm like I do notever have to sit on a public toilet which is fantastic is disgusting iscross. Yes, you know- and I was always trained like you- should on the toilyou're going to get herpes and then even when you put the Johnny down orthe paper toilet paper down, you're afraid, like you know, your weener isgoing to hit the side of the bowl. The next thing you know you're Goin, to getlike a massive growth or something and have to go to the doctor and explain itto your family and friend. It's just it's a nightmare for me, a nightmare soback to my current predicament. I I make a B line for the private employeebathroom and once I arrive there, I see that it's locked, because it's alreadyin use. Oh No! No, this isn't good. So then I got towalk half way across my place of employment to reach the publicrestrooms M, but but clenched the Oh dude, like anybody seeing me must havethought I was like the you ever see the movie men in black when the bug guyslike we're in the human suit he's like walking around his limbs cold id in man-Oh, my God, it was. It was something else, and you want to act normal. It'slike you just like stole something you don't want to get caught like you knowwhat I ma saying. No, that guy's got a shit, look at that Guy Y'all beating upon your forehead guy, oh my God, so there I am. I make it to the entranceand right then I got a decision to make because keep your asshole shut is not even. Ican't even think that anymore yeah all right got to get there. I just got toget there and do what I got to do. There's this is it this is. My streakis over is done with nothing I can do about it. I'm in I have no control.Take the l take the Elf, the big fat L on that one. So my mental decision atthat time was head straight to the handicapped toilet because he more space in therefor some er and I thought I'd be cleaner. Maybe because no look, I knowthat I've seen all types of characters and all walks of life go into the restroom and I know they're up to no good sure. I know there's people in there,you know probably doing drugs and you know homeless people come in there andprobably use the facilities because they get to know the place to go. So I already know it's going to be asituation, but I'm thinking you know just trying to rationalize everything.Handicapped stall is going to be the best all out of the options that I havethat's a logical assumption. You would think right, maybe or or so I thought,because I slam the door shut. I'm yanking down my pants as fast as I can.I look at the toilet. Seat covered and Piss yeah covered in it like some guyis and is like unidentifiable chunks in differentthings, and it's just is dude put this anybody out. There put it inyour mind's eye, the most disgusting looking toilet you could ever see, butluckily sitting on a patre dish. Basically, yes, luckily, the waterdidn't have anything in it. So I'm like all right, I don't even have time toyeah prep the seat clean, the seat, nothing, Oh, no, but I'm not going tosit on it go no way. I'm gonna do something. I'venever done in my entire existence, I'm just going to hover, but I've heard ofwomen do him. I like yes and David Blaine or doctor strange there yeahexactly there. I am so man I just I've got. I got to do what I got to do so Ijust drop trout. I let loose hovering, probably a good six to eight inchesabove the toilet. All right and my eyes are just closed in frustration. I meanthe crows feet. Just imagine my face you s like you know how to paint apicture, a man. Well, it's going to get even better, because now that you'vethought of my face in this disgruntled...

...horribly, you know horrified manner,yeah my eyes open wide. When I hear thesound of there, you go because it wasn't whatwas dropping in. But what was coming back and right then, that little splashof water hit me dead center, Snack Dab in the center of my Butt Hole. Oh Igood right and I'm like no, please God! No! It is, if I couldn't say no enough,that was like a hepatitis bullitt's exactly what was going through my mind.I'm like I thought I just like totally escape the beast. I man I had made it things were happening, yeah,understandably, not exactly the way I wanted them to, but still I wasavoiding the pit falls of having to use this public toilet yeah, no splash back,and it got me like it wasn't even like my cheeks. It was just boom boom rightin the Achilles heel, dude a center that sent a shot. So my God there I am.I mean I'm literally at that moment, ready to like call a therapist- or Idon't even know just set fire to me to my own rectum end it all right now,yeah it's over! It's done. I mean I can't. How can I even look my wife inthe face after this? What is it? What has happened to me? I mean I couldn'teven look in the mirror. Yeah myself been violated by a public toilet yeah.Basically, and it was one of the worst. If not the worst experience of myentire life, I mean wow and when I got home, oh they're, cleaning, wowcleansing and MOSD post toilet stress disorder. That's what it was. I I mean did you take a shower like, like?I don't know the sexual assault victim in an old movie like I know that soundspretty awful now as a pretty severe yeah, but if they're a test getinvolved. No, but I mean I do. I was scrubbing scrubbed DUB Dubin, the oldbrown balloon not like was no to Morrow, oh my God, and then like even when Iwas in there. I knew I couldn't like clean myself properly, but I still wentto the sink and I grabbed some soap and water and then went back into thebathroom stall and kind of clean my back side a little bit. Just like Idon't know, intimate dude at this point is no going back right. There's nothingelse you can do. Is Happened, is there it's like you know, even even a little soap and water isnot going to take away sure the blop sure? Oh no man, that's you've beenscarred for life. At this point you know my streak is over. I got to starta new one. Now I mean it's been this many days since save that work. Death con for there waslike yeah people hitting buttons in my mind, like no N, no, don't do this daye.Please don't do this. What are you going to do, though? Daveyou know? Listen. I will say this. I think everyone can relate to that story.At least the fear involved. But okay, but I'll say like with my checkeredpast, shall we say of addiction and all these things like? I spent a lot oftime like I'll just say I can relate to that panic really really easily. It'sreally easy for me to go back just because, like I said I was a streetjunkie like homeless, I didn't have a home toilet to go back to for a longtime. So I definitely especially as an addict where, when you're craving thedrugger, you need the drug, your stomach is a mess and you got a shitevery you know whatever ten minutes, whatever it is, and then, when you getthe drugs in your hand, that often initial initiates a response of yeah.Oh my God, I got to take a shit. You know the thing right right, so I knowthat panic well, and I will say this. I...

...remember that it would be like a senseof peace when you finally got to a toilet and obviously, if you're anaddict, especially with the drugs in hand, but but the feeling wasn'tcomplete of like relief. Until I looked at the toilet, roll DISPENSA, ToiletPaper, Roll Dispenser Because Yeah there have been times where it's like.Oh thank God, I'm in this way like sit down and then I look and there's notoilet paper a and then you're just like this is not relief like I still infact you know so anyway. I've had that happen. Before I don't. I mean the thewhole Brown eye target the show I don't know if I've been there, but I meanmaybe I'm sure I know I know people have shot up with toilet water. I guessthat's similar, but that's terrible all the things of nightmares. Oh, my listen,Hey meet real quick, though let me tell you and I'm sure you've heard thisstory before when I was a kid I had a buddy of mine. I had to go so bad, hestopped at a gas station and he went and did his bit and there's no toiletpaper yeah and he ended up looking around and panic like. What am I goingto do? I got to clean myself here and he just looks up randomly and theceiling isn't done and he sees is some of that Pink Panther insulation. No,yes yeah! I never told you this before. If you did it's, you know somehow mymind has just forgotten yeah, probably because how terrible it is and hereached up, he grabbed. You know a Swatch of the insulation and use thatand then we're walking home and he's like. I am so itchy I need. I need toget home right now. He's like. I need to do something right now and I waslike that's like the worst thing. Can even imagine yeah, that's what I'msaying it was just, but it happened to some one. I know well and I was thereand I mean it as a kid. I was also diagnosed with something called CronesDisease Huh, which was weird because when that happened my mom had to talkto the school. They basically said he can go to the bathroom whenever he wasbecause, like an irritable, bowel thing sure so back when everyone well lateron sure, but when you're younger it's embarrassing yeah, it's like you, don'twant to like. Be that kid who's yeah. He can't you know, call control himself,he's Goin to gratis it, but I was very good and doing that. Even if I had theurge I still was like I'm going to wait till I get home, yeah, where's,comfortable and clean in my own environs, but I'll tell you all thattraining as a child of holding it did seem to work at work. The other day mayman is, is worked for me for a long time. That's why I said it's been atleast twenty years that I can recall having to you, know utilize one ofthese public restrooms in such a way m. So this was the most extreme ofextremes. This was literally as bad as it could. Possibly I mean I was wantingto exactly make a mess. If I did not do what I did in fact did so yeah wowthere you have it I'll tell you. I would not have told you when I got itthis morning, that I would have discussed a single vegal experience foralmost twenty minutes. Yep, that's the way the world works. Baby is one lifeis weird, is weird and just fucking great to Dave. I know you're somewhat of afan of these, but I've been watching a lot of documentaries and documentaryseries. Lately, Love Them Yeah Man, it's entertaining, but at the same timeit's nice to just learn some things that are real and like Joey, my stepson, my my boy has, you know, he's voiced several timeslike he's still at that age, where it's boring to watch the news. Oh yeah he'swhen we're going to watch something, even if it's a cool documentary thatI'm, like you probably like this he's like I'm, not watching a fuckingdocumentary, and I was history, fucking try yeah, you may learn somethingrightyeah. No, I listen and I relate and...

...that's the point of what I m I kind ofwanted to talk about is that you know I'm in my early s and recently over thelast so many years I mean a lot of my adult years- were kind of wasted justdoing stupid things, as I mentioned in the last segment. But now I'm like youknow what I like learning these things like I'm interested in them, and Istarted thinking about how our education system and just the way wework as humans, biologically is kind of messed up, because when you're a kidthey send you to school and you've got to learn all these things and you gettested. And it's like this bombardment of information for the first, you knoweighteen or more years of go to college of Your Life. But the reason is because,when you're that age, hey you're getting ready for the world and bebiologically, you just work better. That way like you, your mind isdesigned to absorb all this information when you're young, like they say thatthe you know, human child learns more in their first, whatever it is threeyears than they do in any. You know the rest of their life, whatever it is sureI know you mean tistics. I wish I'd looked that up, but anyway, my point isat that age. The problem is, most of us aren't interested in any of the shit.So I you know- and this is the ironic part- is that when I was a kid I always was in or for a for a while, I was inall the advanced classes when I was about nine years old for the next fewyears. I was in this thing called project expand in my school, where theywould take like there were like eight of us. I think that would all get takenout of our classes. We'd go to this room. We'd learn some other things, butmostly we just kind of like discuss things and learn to use reasoning likedifferently. We were young, we're like nine years old at first, but we wouldall it was a different kind of learning and it was for kids that were testinghigher than others. So I had this potential and even when I was taking myPSA TS and Sats, like my scores, got me, a national merit scholarship nomineelike out of people all over the country. You know, like my my scores, got me tothat and right we sure, yeah and- and I did I tested really well on a lot of things. I retained a lot ofthin, but I never did homework I couldn't have been both like. I wouldtake acid in school walrond. You know what I mean. I remember Oh yeah like,but my point is: I have no interest in any of that shit and if I did the workit was because you know Oh, I remember it so I can answer the questions on thetest and also I just I don't know it was. It was often just to get it donebecause I had to but the homework I mean I the point is I had all thoseaccolades, but I barely graduated high school because I was so behind withhomework or projects or whatever it was that I was so irresponsible that Ibarely graduated, despite being a national merit, scholarship nominee andnow you know twenty years later, twentyfive years later, whatever it is, I'm so interested in all that shit and nowit's. If I want to take classes, it costs a ton of money. It's like goingback to college or something and like you know, I just feel like the wholesystem's messed up, and I don't know if you can relate it all. I know you saidyou're into the documentaries and stuff, but you know you know what I'm talkingabout. I do I do it's like it's just weird, how your tastes and yourinterests and things like that, mature and change, and so maybe now you mightbe interested in a topic that you would not even think about being botheredwith at the age of sixteen through eighteen that you're, like man. I wouldlove to be able to sit in a class and totally get into the the nitty grittyon this stuff now, but if to do so, I'm have to pay a fucking bucket load ofmoney. I've need old, mother Fuckin going back to school right, you know,so I any rats like you know the the public education systems fantastic forthese kids. So why can't I just decide?...

I want to go back to ninth grade. Why not? I know I graduated it already,but I didn't really get the full experience and did get all theinformation that was offered to me. So can I just go back to that grade? Take the philosophy class and enjoy allthat exactly man. I don't know this stuff interests me now. It's it's! I guess. If I really want it, I'dbe willing to pay for it, but it's just you know how it is life life. Is Youknow it's hard to find the money to do all these things like? How is thatgoing to benefit me nowadays? It's one thing: If I wanted to become some kindof, I guess a. What do you do want to use yeah? Well, yon use a philosophydegree for you know unless you're going to be a teacher, but it's interestingstuff and to me it's things that I ponder anyway like the way people thinkand the way people respond to life we've mentioned before that show theleftovers and how I found it was so fascinatng, because it's about howpeople grapple with you know unknown things that happen and that stufffascinates me and as a kid I couldn't have given a shit or I didn't know that.That's what I was learning you know I didn't realize it at the time I wasjust like. Oh, it's boring shit and I don't I might have been interested inif I gave it a shot, but I don't know I guess my point is like: if any peopleare young, it's like, I don't even know because, like I said, maybe you'reobviously probably not even interested at the time, but I was going to saytake advantage while it's there yeah, you know, try to learn some things.While you can- and I don't know- but I was just didn't- get fucked up, youknow I'm saying no. I me too absolutely I was more interested in getting theBabes in the brows and you know learning my abs and seas, but that'sthe thing I was going to say it's like a Woom, either the public school orschools when you are young, because you know you're in this bubble or youprotected you you're in these classrooms. You get these lessonstaught to you by hopefully someone who's, Semi Professional. But then,when you don't your spit out in the world, you want any more that infultyou're, going to figure out how to get it on your own right. You know you cango watch. Those documentaries can reach God damn books, but we're not payingfor it. You know, taxpayer dollars are not handling. Any of that you hear meyou had. I guess is what you do now right and Imean that's the same thing with a hobby or something you might be interested inyou just you go online, you go and read it. You go wherever and you start justkind of like inundating yourself with as much of that information is humanlypossible, but yes, how nice would it be if you could just stroll up to a brickin mortar building and say look I don't want to pay a shit, but I want to learnsomething. Can you let me in and let let me do that, and they say yes, ofcourse, because knowledge is power, my young friend or old friend, as the casemay be now, but you know I want in and had be wonderful. It's like the didn't, like Ozzy Osbourne, famouslysay, like we're, born in the wrong order, like we should be born old,Benjamin button style, basically exactly because you're so young anddumb when you're a kid like you know, and all these opportunities come yourway and they don't really take full advantage of them or appreciate themwhen they happen, but when you're old you're like fuck cap, why did I? Whydid I do this or whatever, but then you're old and you're feeble and your you're crapping yourself at work? You know and Er. You know it yeah, buta shot in the asshole with toilet water. Exactly that's! What's Ha, that's yourlife! Now! That's it! So you know youth is wasted on the young. Basically thisand that's exactly what I was just going to say. It's so true. It's likeyou, don't realize what you have when an opportunity comes by you don'trealize that there aren't going to be a lot of those, so you just you know,take it for granted a lot of the times and it's it's so weird, because here weare reciting the same things we probably heard from older people, andwe were young and it's so true man. I...

...don't know it's just the the whole facepalm thing where it's just like a well here's a kicker nat here is the bigkick like. I would like to think or believe that there are many people outthere who decided. You know what I am going to learn this stuff. I am takingthis class because it's not opportunity, while I am young to learn- and you knowdo something- I broaden my horizons if you will sure, but then I look atsociety at large of our country of the US FA and Irealized there are so many dumb clothes minded ruthlessly idiotic,mother, fuckers out there I mean- and I m again I'm just talkingabout our country, not even in the rest of the world right who had differentsetups in different ways that their you know, education systems are organizedand everything else that you know it's not out of the norm. That people justget this opportunity and just don't give a fucking shit. They don't carelike you know, and it may have been drugs and partying or whatever you went and wanted to do likea different career when you were young, so why I learned that if I want to be acarpenter, why do I give a fuck about we keep using philosophy and is anexample here, but makes sense why? Why do I care about that? Why do I needthat? I don't need that. I don't mean to learn Spanish, I'm going to pay aplumber in Oshkosh, wis, Wisconsin or whatever. So you know it's the way of the world sure,but the thing is yeah now some of us at least can appreciate that just knowingthat stuff, knowing about the world in general, is a positive thing and likeeventually, you might deal with other cultures that you can learn about, andlanguages are important to learn, but there's so many of us that aren'teducated or you know had a shitty education systemwhere they are and now s that they're older, they just think. Well, that'syou know that other still isn't for me, like that attitude of. Why am I goingto need to learn that it's like they don't realize the value of it becausethey live in this insular world and then you get the whole fear of theoutside fear of the other. The things that you don't know because when thingsare unknown, there's fear right in fear turns into bigotry, and you know,discrimination and all these things and hating immigrants and hate and gaypeople a fantastic point. That's that's the willingness to be force, Fed andnarrative sure right. It is the reason why I say this is such a fantasticpoint. You just made is because there is a time in everybody's life, whether they realize it or not, wherethey have the ability to understand that. Okay, I fuck this up. Let mechange it HM. You know what I mean. Let me let me pivot. I can do somethingdifferent. I can believe something different can be someone differentacross roads. Yes, yes, thank you exactly and I guess it's another bigchallenge of of being a human being of being a person, a soul, anybody whereinyou can go okay. This was wrong. I've been doing something wrong. Let mefucking like do something about it. Yeah or yet again sit behind a computerscreen, clickety crackety click, and I just like being a moron and a dingus.That's the way. I can only agree with other dinguses, because my world viewand everything else I get the fucking blinders on and I'm happy as a big andshit that in the Algorithm is sending me the same it over and O. Yes and howthe fuck, in you name the Indians, the guardians come on now exactly you know:What's the Lath Mon O fuckers all right, so I know we tend to get political allthe time and the funny things I owe it. I always put this little caveat whereI'm like. Oh, I don't look to get political, but yet I always find myselftalking about this shit o so whatever, let's give into it. So let's do itseducation baby. So did you notice if...

...you are the type that just watches likelike the Fox News and all that it seems like it's always something they'refighting some battle? The only way they're able to keep their support iswe need to fight against this there and it's always some bullshit. It's alwaysthey're coming to take your guns or your bibles. I've heard that one nowthere can come door to door to take your bibles. That was the argument with you know them coming door to door toask. If you want a vaccine, that's all they were talking about recently. Theywere saying: Maybe we should start offering door to door. So people don'thave to go these unvaccinated people that are in danger and Fox News of the right wing media startssaying they're what they're going to start a government project that goesdoor to door. You know they don't mention like the male that you knowthey already come to her a door basically yeah for things but they're,acting like it's some sinister thing, where they're going to come door todoor and force you to take a cit's like no, that's, not the point, but it getsthem angry and it gets them worried and they actually said. What's next comingto take your guns door, the door come in to take your bibles door, the doorlike who's. Talking about that Shit, which again is like the war onChristmas a few years ago, which was some bullshit, because people wanted tosay happy holidays instead of Merry Christmas and that you know, but it gotpeople angry like my culture, is under attack and the only way that's all theyhave at this point, it seems like the right wing. All they have is tax breaksfor people. You know the wealthy specifically, and you know we got to stop all thesethings. The liberals are doing and you need to be afraid of what they're doing,and that seems to be all they really have. They don't have much for andvoter suppression, so we can because the less people vote the better chancethe Republicans have, because, obviously you know it's like morepeople, if the more people vote the more likely it is that a liberal isgoing to be elector or a Democrat. What does that mean? It means your ideas areless popular. You can never win the popular vote and rather than try to winthe war of ideas which you know it should be what it's about. They justtry to make it harder to vote, and you know what I mean and and of keep andkeep their own base angry enough to make sure that all of them go vote. Youknow, like that's the point like be scared. You've got to go vote becausethe gazes are trying to like teach your kids to be gay or they're teaching,critical race theory or they're. Taking Dr Sous books out of whatever the fuckthey're Worrie know, it's always gone so races, some some terrible thing.That's going to happen! It's funny when you say like doortodoor, like they're,going to storm the citadel and be like yeah. I know you canunderstand fucking this and that because we're going to make you we gotto force you- and I remember I brought this up in the show before,because I live in Texas and one of my least favorite human beings of all time.This senator Ted Cruise H, I think, is a gutless spineless, useless, worthless.lobbish. Thank you anything you want, but if you remember when he was we'regoing to boycott Nike Yeah, that's what we're going to do, because Callin capenkneels during a national anthem, so join me my followers and boycottingNike and then is a couple days ago. He shows up late for a vote and he'scoming from his pickup game and what is he gone on? fucking Nike Songs, yeahand I'm like Hey, hey there guy what happened that fucking boy- and I be- Ibrought that up so many times because I'm always like, I think, even lastepisode for Christ Sake, because I'm like what happened to the news. Whathappened to this? What happened? You know all all this stuff that causeoutrage and just people going to fucking bonkers on social media. Youknow it's over now the news cycle just washed it away yeah, but real thingsyou're talking about we're, not educating. Yes, exactly. We are notsmart enough as a whole as a unit to understand that we're just beingcompletely fucking. Is I'm going to throw up a button vomitall over my freaking computer screen, because we are just herded togetherlike a gaggle of Morons, sure dude, I...

...to swallow all this fucking false crap,the way propaganda works. Is You convince the public that yours is the only voiceto be trusted and all the rest needs to be? You know you need to be skepticalof and that's what they've done. They're like only watch Fox News. Likeyou know, even my father he'll be like Fox, who is the only one that tells thetruth? Tells you what I e it is, but you watch it and they're telling peoplethat that they're trying to cancel Dr Sous or Mr Potata ad, and all this whenthat's not even the case like Dr Sus, wasn't pulled because they got told bythe Liberals to take these two books or whatever it was off the shells. It wasthe dor seus state saying these old books have some like racist, lookingpictures and shut. Maybe we shouldn't sell them anymore and we can just youknow they made the decision themselves. Nobody forced them, it's not a war,it's not canceled culture, it's getting its learning. You know that maybe theShit's not cool, and hence you have the Cleveland Indians, changing to theGuardians, as you mentioned, like yeah, whatever. That was a big thing and nowthat'll be over in a week. You's just like cap in America, marvel comics iswoke. Oh my God is Captain America Gay. Is He guy? Oh, the children, kidsaren't even fucking. Reading comics now come on. You find it on, but that'sthat's you know. This is all back to your original point, even though I'vecompletely the thing is, I get so angry about it. I stutter and I make noisesand everything else because it's just utter disbelief, yeah. This is whathappens, and you know you bring up Fox News and just news in general. I don'twatch news really because I like to formulate my own fucking opinion,because I'm not even seeing MSNBC is telling you the truth. At the time Idon't fucking nother everybody's trying to sell you something. Of course youknow what I mean you have to know. What's going on at the same point, youhave to know like you, but the key is don't just believe one like watch themoff eat like you, don't have to watch, none like, but don't just watch one andespecially one that tells you not to watch any of the others. Like you got.You got to make up your own mind. You can't just take one source as me in theGospel he going Gaga over it like nobody's business, it's just ridiculous.So, let's en all of our asses back to school, we need it paddles head mistress, do it.

What do you say? We hop into some nates notes up your LP, it's time for NAT, no, noas old as I'm getting. I still like to keep my finger on the pulse of, what'sbeing released, Music Wise. I have friends who complain that there's nogood music, any more, that everything new is garbage and I always tell themthey're, just not looking we're living in a golden age for true music lovers. Not only is it easier for any artist toput their music out there, but it's so much easier for a listener to find newartists gone are the old days of rifling through record, store shelvesor tape trading with friends. Everything is literally at your fingertips, of course, with it being so easy toupload tunes. One does come across a lot of shitty music too, but there'snothing new. We've always had to find diamonds in the rough, so sometimes Iwatch certain music review channels on Youtube or whatever for recommendationsI find reviewers whose tastes I identify with, or at least respect anyway, and my online searches haverecently come across multiple discussions regarding this band calledtramp stamps they're, an all girl pop punk band, who all have pink or bluehair. They started on tick, Tock and sing. Songs that sound, really edgy,specifically stuff, like I'd rather die than hook up with another straightwhite guy they're in their mid to late ties, and they write songs that soundlike a teenager, trying to shock their parents really thumbing their nose tothe patriarchy, their punts, get it feminists against white SIS, genderChads really geared towards a certain crowd. But if annything happened withtrams tims, instead of their songs becoming the anthems of rebellion, theyhoped for. There was a tremendous backlash in which virtually everyonline reviewer and most people commenting on their videos called themout for how blatantly manufactured in fake the tramp stamps are. Apparently they were industry plantsthat were already working for publishing companies. Some of them evenplaying more mainstream pot music before they decided to die their hairchange, their vocal style and quote, go punk. In short, the band has beenlargely marked for there in authenticity, one of those scapegoatslike creed or nickelback, who formed a band just to become a punch line, andI'm not saying it's undeserved. All those bands are pretty awful, but itbrought up a concept I hadn't really thought of. Since I was a teenage musicsnob, the concept of posers. I remember that term being thrown around at bothbands and fans, man, your opposer, going to a hardcoreshow but wearing a blink hundred. Eighty two shirt or you've only beeninto this band since they had a hit on...

MTV or that band is a bunch of posers.They write industrial music, but they shot at the gap or whatever that stuffseemed really important to those of us who had found a subculture and wantedit to remain as pure as possible. Whatever that means, I didn't want tosee a jock at a goth show when nine inch nails got huge and playedwoodstock. Ninety four, I was almost bummed out, never mind that thatconcert is legendary and still one of the best performances they've probablyever done. All I could see were the hundreds of backwards baseball caps inthe crowd. Of course, most of us grow up and seethings differently. Nowadays I just like to listen to themusic. I'm old, I'm not mashing at a show. I want to actually watch the bandmembers perform. I could care less where the band or f the crowd shop forclothes are what other bands there into it's all about the music, the wholeconcept of authenticity or being true as the black meddlers call. It isbizarre think about it. I understand the insular nature of music scenes, notwanting your special thing to lose its Lustre, but I mentioned black metaljust now. For a reason, along with punk, black metal is probably the genre withthe most catty fans, ready to call anyone a poser who doesn't meet thesesort of gate keepers standards. It sounds weird to an outsider, but manyblack metal fans denounce bands just for producing clear, professionalsounding records. The original black metal bands, like mayhem, Burson anddark throne, recorded on the shittiest equipment possible and the low highsound, became more of a feature than a bug, but bands like dimor gear andcradle of filth, for example, took that style and ramped it up adding symphonicelements and much crisper sounding production, which really opened thegenre up to lots of experimentation, which is a good thing. But if you ask amayhem, fan cradle of filth and dimor gear are huge posers. They not onlymessed with the unique, sound and visuals, but they never lived thelifestyle they're, not true black metal. The thing is that lifestyle is notsomething really healthy to aspire to. Members of mayhem and emperor burneddown a lot of historic churches in Norway, Varg from bursim killed a guy.So did some members of other bands, and I don't mean they shot somebody thesedudines carried knives and axes and shit. So yeah. What's wrong with notbeing a true black medler. If you go backwards in basically anyone's life,they were just normal people. There was always a point where a person foundtheir chosen style. It's not like we come out of the womb wearing spikedbracelets or a joy division, shirt to some extent. We all present an image ofthe person we want others to see in us. There's often some in authenticity inall of us, especially when we're young and unsure of ourselves finding a clickis often really important, but that gatekeeper mentality can be reallytoxic. Ideally, it may be there to hold on to some specialness to preserve ascene that long time, fans hold so dear, but it usually just ends up beingreally fucking. Douche...

...inclusively is not a bad thing and yeah.There are definitely bands that just try to cash in on a certain style thatthey may not really understand. Tramp stamps are unquestionably cringe,inducing it's okay, to call out in authenticity when its manufactured by aboard room to sell products in nothing more, but sometimes a poser is just a newcomer or some one. WHO's open minded enoughto listen to steely Dan, as well as black flag, fuck, all the haters,listen to what you want. Just don't get sucked in and start chopping people upfor Satan or something that kind of authenticity is okay. To avoid yeah Imean, I remember, being called a poser at age fifteen and I thought it was theworst thing anybody could ever say to me. Yeah, I'm not kidding like the dude whoyelled at me was like the darkies fucking nerdy anthrax fan yeah, andwhen I say this imagine imagine the Jean Jacket in the scratter me in thehair and the coke bottle glasses, pointing his bony ass finger at me,saying you are a poser and now in retrospect is funny, because people whocall you posers were probably only into the band for like a year themselves,but you just totally immerse yourself in it. So anybody on the outside, whomay have a casual liking of something, is a fraud. I agree man I mean. I justthink at this point: it's not even I don't know it's. As I said some ofthese subcultures being true. It isn't a good thing like there are people thatcriticized this rapper to Kashi, six, nine, who he was all in the news. Youknow a year or two ago, because the point is he started out. I he wasn't ina gang. He like hung out with gang members, but wanted to present thisgang image. People all called him poser because he would hang out with allthese gamers and he started wearing a lot of red and hanging with the bloodsand doing all this shit and wrapping about all this gang activity. He wasdoing and a lot of people started, calling them out like dude you're, noteven part of this lifestyle like don't fuck around, and he just took it as achallenge got more loud started, getting involved in some crazy shit andnext thing you know the FBI and like law enforcement, came and got himbecause he was doing all this shady shit and you know what he did. Hebecame this famous snitch and now his name is laughed at because he must thisinformant and, like I mean I'm sure, he's glad he you know lived thelifestyle after that. It's just weird, though, when you say something likethat, like how old is this guy late, teens early Tis all right? Well,that makes sense then, because you know back, then you don't know what you are.Identity is so important right trying to establish that when you're youngyeah, you just don't know what you really want to be you'reinfluenced by so many outside sources that okay, you know it ud be different. Ifhe was forty five years old right, you know and one day he's like well, I justwant to become a fucking blood. You know when you when you're twelve, youmight be into Britney Spears and I'm dating myself here and next thankuseing. You know you wear all black yeah and you're into death, metal orwhatever and okay I get it. That makes sense. So you know yeah, and I mean youallowed your boy stress to when you're that age, so he's just a moron withduty youth. Exactly but that's the thing I you know, our show in largepart is about getting older and realizing that how life is and like, asopposed to when you're young and how your perspective changed and- and thisis a big part of it- it's finding identity. You don't know who you are atthat age, you don't there's a lot of insecurity and uncertainty and thatshit is why we make so many bad choices...

...when we're young yeah- and you knowit's, it's really interesting. You know, andthese again these are things that I would be interested in taking a class.I that think. Oh yes, it's actually kind of funny, because when we talkabout music and you had brought up, steely Dan, like yeah sure welcomewelcome to the band wagon. It's like. I Love David Buty. When I find outsomeone likes David Boy, I don't care if they like him for a week or fifteenyears or whatever you know right, there's no big deal, but then, when itcomes to my my fandom of comic books, I'm not like angry at people, but I always findit weird when someone's like. I don't know where they will claim that theyare an expert or they know a lot about a character or their the history. Therun of a particular let's say book and you go dude. You've only been into itfor like two weeks like what the fuck are you talking about. So I think it'sone of those things with the bravado involved as well, and if you pretendlike your now at all or something or you're, like all of a sudden you're,the biggest fan of something right, I've seen people in comics twitter,where they kind of change identities in change for one week. They are reallyinto this one character and then two weeks lager did change the name oftheir account and all of a sudden they're posting nothing. But this onecharacter for until they decide again on their whimsey to changing it, andthat irritates me sure you know I find out whether fans. Yes, thank you, fairweather fans as irritating. So I don't know it's weird, but yeah. Definitelywhen you're still trying to get the feelersout on who you are, I mean that's a tough one. I can. I cancall someone to pose or any more I and it's not important any more. Like yousaid. I just mentioned that kid doing that to me, when I was like fifteen waslike oh take the dagger out. Man Like I am bleeding all over the fortyeah, I'm a STU pig and now, if someone yelled you pose or I be like yeahwhatever I do. You fuckin bills that I got things to do in my real life. You know I mean who is not a poser whoG G fucking Allen, oh gross! Oh you want to go here to that yeah yeah exactly and that's anotherone. I don't know it's like for the uninitiated. If you don't know who G GAllen is M, don't look it up at work. Do not look up that man in any placewhere your Internet history is something that you could be possiblyashamed of, and s F, W E exactly, but definitely if you're interested in somereally fucked up human beings who walk this earth he's one of them that you can look intoand be completely repulsed and disgusted by, and you know,interestingly enough, you bringing him up, I knew a guy in high school who's,a big fan of his because of that this guy I was like one of the scummiest fucking humanbeings, but so anti establishment right is so anti everything that it's justfuck the system, so basic dialistic that you can understand why someone whois sixteen years old could say hey. This is something I'm going to look upto. This is something I aspire to that's punk rock and that's scary,fucking rock yeah, THAT'S DANGEROUS YEP! It really is you know, of course, it'snot Charles Berkley, saying he's no idol, some sport star or something.This is sure if you want to emulate these death metal guys or a GG Allen,or something or even to, for example, I was a big Bukawinian, and this is whenI was like completely sunk in my alcoholic nature, where I was romanticizing. The ideathat this is the way to live. This is the way to do it now years. Separatedfrom that, I can look back with clear eyes and go no. I mean you can stillappreciate the man's work, but the...

...lifestyle was not something to emulateor aspire to at all. No, no, no, no, but yet again being it such a young ageand easily absorbing those outside influences and aspiringto these kind of things is cant is dangerous. It's risky, Musky business,my friend for sure man not healthy Eahman, I mean. Hopefully a lot of usget get these concepts as we get older, but you know role. Models are important.It's really easy to get sucked into the wrong ones, and it's also really easyto get angry at things enough, where you do look up to someone who wants tosmash the system or just buck it every system, you know and yeah, and then youget people like not to bring in politics again but like Donald Trump,who that was why everyone wanted to vote for him was because he's somebodythat wants to destroy the system. He wants to take it apart and they sentthem in like a grenade and then, but they didn't think what was going tohappen. You know, and anyway again, where Are you knowing there? You golook at you. This is something we could rant and rave about incessantly. I'mpretty sure I because I mentioned before I get so angry about it m, but Imean, but yet role miles in general yeah, it's one of those things where,when you are our age, when you're in your S, does anybody ever ask like whoyour role models are like you not supposed to have on any more? You aresupposed to be one, I suppose yeah, but you could couldn't you technicallystill have I mean, like sure, Gondy yeah, I think by now our role modelsare in to use a word that you mentioned last time in a Malga of Malaga, my yesof roll nuts. You know like the like. By now, you should have a bunch of themand and take bits of each hopefully and you know, and maybe have some wisdom tofigure out which are the parts that are that are best to be left alone andwhich ones are best to be emulated. You know, maybe you are a role model toyour young stepson. Maybe our show to anybody out there listening. We mightbe role models to them, maybe God help them, God yeah. I was going to say toit, in which case be careful. Good Luck, God speed. But no I mean I don't know.I have a son, I hopefully he looks up to me and and I'm teaching him theright stuff and putting him on the right path, and I know because he's sohe's eight. So when he's a teenager, Oh boy, here we go, and I know he's gonnabe like Fuck, you dad. Your information is futile, its useless man. You know.Yes, some of US have to learn in the hard way and that's the thing we alsohave to learn to. Sometimes people have learned the hard lessons for us, butsometimes- and we should just listen, butsometimes we have to learn those lessons ourselves and you know, maybethe reason we went through such garbage and hard times is because then we cancome out. The other end able to help somebody else through something likethat's. The only thing that gets me through sometimes Dane is hoping thingslike that Yep. I agree. We are posers, we are sellouts, hence the name of ourshow and it's good. It's a good thing. It's fine join us. The water's warmwell the what we won't tell you why it's warm, but it is in fact warm. Imean to make it this far for somebody outthere who'd be like dude you're. All in your forties, like what's the big deal,you're, not old, no we're, not old, but you know the life that we've lived. It's an accomplishment man, you knowit's a big fucking deal for sure so to enjoy the finer things in life isdefinitely the payoff the CINICO yeah, all that good fucking shit well, Nateis,always interesting peace and you...

...interject in some death metal into it,because you are a death, metal, fanatic, technically black metal but yeah. Iknow what you're saying lack you see, I'm a poser! I frodis. If you don'tknow the different yeah, I don't know the fuck's going on this bunch of dudesplaying guitars drinking beers. Just just a little aside there I did postsomething on our facebook page. The selling out facebook page, which isselling out, show one M on facebook, where there's a comparison between whatI'm talking about when I say technical death metal, because I talked aboutsubgenres lest episode and I, for contrast, I put what a black metal banda typical black metal band sounds like and looks like there's a video versus atechnical death metal band. So if you're interested, it is kind of neatto see the differences in you learn, there's a reason for these sub genresand you can be a poser and check out a band that you're not part of the sceneyeah. So you mention that to me I've yet to check it out because going onfacebook for me is like pulling teeth, I'm kicking andscreaming, and my yeah, you can see the finger nail claw marks in the floor.I'm like Oh ace book. Oh No fucking at his Hasan Ali yourself, yeah educateyour self. Keep your ass whole shut. What have we learned this episode right?Beware, the palpitating! Anus! ABSOLUTELY NATE! You have anything else!You would like to add before we let these fine furry folks go on the MaryWay. You know I could talk for hours, but l, let you guys go yeah.
