She's here to talk about podcast projects and kickstarters and star wars and cool stuff like that. Everybody, please welcome Savannah Web. How are you? I'm good, welcome to the basement lab. Happy to be back and I'm happy to have this Lovely Cup of tea. Oh, you're so welcome. It's very nice. It's a good yes, and the Mug is great. Also, that was a got a little figure of Dwight on it says Bears Beats Bettlestar GALACTICA. That was a secret Santa Gift from work. It's a good secret Santa. It is. She she knew I liked the office. Yeah, that's definitely a good one. I'm drinking a bourbon and cocatoo in the afternoon because I don't care. It's much show. So SAVANNA's here. You know, she was here back on the old show to talk about, you know, production and working on podcasts and we talked a lot about star wars and we're going to talk more about star wars because, like you, like Star Wars. But you've got a new project undertaking. I do works right now. It's been brewing for a while now. So two years ago on my brother's twenty first birthday, over a Margarite at apple abuse. Yeah, he told me about an idea he'd been kind of working on. and Harrison's got ideas all the time. He's always got a phenomenal new ideas for stories and things like that and as a screenwriter, usually they end up in a pilot episode for a TV show or something like that. But he let me have this one and he's been working on it for the past two years, writing it, rewriting it, and we just cast our entire everybody and then we have crew set up now to and we're getting ready to launch our kickstarter to pay for, wow, everything we need to pay for with this new production. Guys are going all in with this. It is it is an all in situation. So this is a this is a scripted podcast. Yes, those are so much fun. There's so much fun and I think it's just going to...

...be so amazingly just freeing to just kind of just work on this and kind of run away with it. You know those there. Is there anything you can tell us about? Are you about what the show, the show is going to be about, or you kind of holding off on that for right now? We're holding off on a lot of it because it's only a twelve episode series, so every twist in turn we don't want to spoil. It's a sci Fi narrative podcast, so you've got all those classic SCI FI elements. The premise is set in an alternate s where the nuclear war did go hot and the world kind of did end, but all these elites have pretty much join this underground organization that has put them into Cryo sleep so they'll be safe for when it's time to come back out and rebuild humanity. So they're down there with Walt Disney's head. Yeah, pretty much. So it follows a maintenance crew, like scrappy maintenance crew, that maintains this bunker and they kind of uncover different secrets and things. This reminds me of and your your you're an RPG person, so you might not I'm talking about. There was a there was a d six format tabletop called shadow run. Yeah, I've heard of that. Heard of that. It was very combination of like cyberpunk and fantasy, where it was post apocalyptic and you were kind of mixing the, you know, the fantasy of like, you know, there were ogres and ORCS and elves and all that, and also there's this weird cybertech world with, you know, the hackers, and it was like the Matrix Meat, Lord of the rings kind of thing. Not that fantasy. It's not that fantasy. It definitely has sci vibe. But yeah, Harrison's really taken. I've given him complete freedom to do whatever. That was one of our agreements, because I'm a pushy older sister sometimes. One of the original agreements with this I will do this, but I get to write whatever I want. was like I like the story, go for it. And the crazy thing is there's a major plot in it. There's a major plot twist to the whole story. I didn't even know it was a thing until I read the script like three weeks ago. Okay, not even there, a little bit longer, may you, like a month ago. But like that's how I close, like how much I've just been like Harris and you just be in your corner and do what you do. Like it close to the chest. It's not my it's not my areas of specialty, like I want to do the editing, I want to do the sound design, like that's what I'm really excited for, all that post production work that I get to do. And he's really just kind of win with it and he's probably told me like what the plot twist was and I completely just forgot. It's like, you know, I don't need to know this, it's fine. I don't even know that. He's just like rambling on. I'm like, okay, cool, it sounds awesome. I can't wait. I don't care what you do. You you're going to do something awesome. How big of a cast are we talking about here? We have nine cast members for most parts. So we have three main cast, three supporting and three kind of guests casts, but I think there's a few more smaller guest roles on top of that. Now, you guys, I'm I do one of these as well. Are you guys doing it where you're all getting together and recording together? Are you just kind of recording everybody individually and make recording everything together? Okay, yeah, so we're going to have some traditional kind of like recording days like you would like on a film crew. Instead we're gonna be in a studio. What ready? I kind of like that, would you, when you have the ability to do it live the tape like that? It saves you so much time on post production. Yeah, Holy Cap, it will save a lot of time on post production. And just like organizing and getting everybody to kind of work things out. I don't think I'll to go back to people so much afterwards be like, Oh, I need this line a little bit shorter, it didn't really work with this person's acting. So this way people can kind of act off each other a little bit better. That's really it's really smart too, because, again, I don't just done that. That's that words. Not only does that, you know, save your time, but it gives everybody that chance to play off each other's performances. I remember we went and saw the photo realistic animated remake of the Lion King and you could tell where certain voice actors didn't record together and certain ones did, like Timon and Pombo. You could tell Seth Rogan and billy, like nor recorded together and had this timing back and forth, whereas, like Donald Glover and beyonce, that part was missing. It sounded like they had recorded separately and been splay together. So having having your cast and crew come in and record together like that, that's I think that's a great way to do it. Yeah, and I think it's really good for just group morale as well. Everybody just kind of didn't listen to everybody else's sessions and just kind of getting to work together instead of remote work. And we do have one of...

...our cast members who has done a lot of voice over work and he has his own at home studio. Wow, like we could make that work, but I just didn't want to do that. I wanted everybody to kind of come out for the weekend and record everything we need to record. Just sit around a campfire and and and and hold microphones and rose marshmallows and record a podcast. Asked about sci fi in the end of the world. We much heat some food. It sounds like a lot of fun that you guys are working on putting together a kickstarter for this. We are. Yeah, how's that going? It's a long cracket process. There's a lot that goes into that. I think we've redone the budget like three more times in the past month. It's just like you kind of forget about things and you're making sure you don't miss anything, because I don't want any surprises later. I mean we'll probably miss something, but hopefully it's because we over budgeted or not under budgeted. Now is what you're looking for? Things like like studio space or what kind of stuff are you looking to? A lot of its equipment cost and paying people. Okay, a really important thing from the beginning is we wanted to be able to pay people for the hey, your artist people. Yeah, come on, Hey, your pay your artists. We have some. We've had some wonderful people come out and just volunteer and help us out with certain little things, but that's for a few hours. And buy them food. That's nice, but if someone's going to be out for hours and hours, I want to at least pay them something. So a lot of our budgets going to pay people and some updated equipment as well. So, okay, sorry, I'm adjusting your microphone. Play with my new toy. So, yeah, that's one of the things that I saw. I saw comic the day on facebook and it was this guy talking an artist needs, like oh, your professional artist. You're never going to make any money doing that. By the way, can I have your art for free? Absolutely crazy. I've had, you know, graphic work done for this show and some voice servers doesn't. It's like I always like can at least pay? Can I buy a lunch? Like yeah, I mean, you know, even if people say they'll do it for free or they've already done it, like you can at least show your gratitude and away. Thank you, noted Lee. Here's a there's a great this new APP called, like I think it's just called like the coffee APP. Oh yeah, and people can just like send you like five bucks for a cup of coffee. Yeah, and it's also like a general artist kind of donation thing too. So if you just have people that kind of fall your work and you work on a lot of different projects, that's a really good option for some people. Yeah, it's kind of like an alternative to Patreon or patreons a monthly thing and it's, you know, it's reward base, whereas with the coffee thing is more just kind of like, I'm a fan of you, here's five bucks. HMM, you know which you know everybody was send me five bucks. That's great. I think twitch works kind of the same way a little bit too, men, which a whole kind of push some money towards people that you're enjoying. I haven't done a whole lot with twitch. I haven't either. I just started playing elder scrolls online for the first time and I'm loving it. It's fantastic. As I says somebody who wasn't a fan of Sky Rim at a, but you know, it's it's an easy something to just get lost in for a couple of hours on my day off. HMM, how much we gamer you are. I I like the idea of it, but I don't always like distracted in the back of my mind. Usually really the only game that I like play minecraft to like relax, like, yeah, I've had a long week, I will be behind my computer for a few hours just playing minecraft, like bench playing, because it's just relaxing. I get to build a I get to pretend I can afflorida house and murder some creatures and things like that. But it's just kind of like soothing for the most friend of the music and everything, and it's just kind of weird that you just like sit there and like watch a fake sunset or something. But like not, that's me. I get all I get home from work, I throw on Hulu on the TV and I just pull up minecraft and I just I just, you know, build things for a couple of it's a good time. I have. I did get my brother's old psthree. I've been meaning to play Dragon Age. Yeah, it's the farthest I've ever got in completing a video game, like really completing like a story based video game. I've never actually done that. Okay, Super I'm super disappointed myself. I've never been able to like get all the way through, like because usually I've played the games like animal crossing and minecraft where it's just kind of like you choose when you're done right for the sins. Yeah, or cities, like city skylines. I mean, I guess I've beat sieved. Does that can? Sure, why not? But I've never liked played like a story based game where I've gotten to the end because I don't know, I just kind of hit a wall where I just kind of stopped doing it at a certain point. So back to a back to the back to the show, back to cold it's called cold storage storage. You have and you guys are...

...on facebook right now and twitter and instagram. Book, Instagram and twitter. Yes, where can they find you, guys? They can find us on. FACEBOOK is just it's cold storage podcast. Instagram it's at cold storage pod and Instagram is at cold storage podcast. Okay, so they can follow you along, interact with you, get announcements and then the kickstarter is getting ready to launch. Yes, it will be ready to launch in the next few week or two. Okay, to two or three weeks maybe. Yeah, how much you guys looking to raise? You still finalize in the pass, finalizing a little bit, but the so what we're doing is we're trying to fund half of our show. So we're trying to fund six episodes. Gets. Six episodes start and we're going to put the stretch goals down for the remaindings. Remainder six episodes. So it's going to be around Thirteenzero. Holy Yeah, we want to be able to pay everybody. We will be able to pay so because I'm gonna have to take time off work pretty much. So yeah, now talking about work. So you also are a professional producer. Yeah, with the CORVUS corvus Audi US audio, we just I just filed all those business documents and October officially a company. Now Look at you. You were talking about it last time you were here. We're doing a lot of the freelance and you were talking about going legit and that we're there. Yeah, it's so weird and I didn't even use it like up until like about a month ago. Like I just got at my business bank account, think two weeks ago. So, because there's just like a weird transition, like I'm still one person, but I'm switching over to like legit company status and it's just kind of weird, like a middle area where it's like I'm still have the same amount of clients. Like I can't do this yet, but I picked up a new client where I was like, okay, now I need to make the change and switch over. So it's a process. been like weird, weird since the beginning, though, because I started podcasting with so like I started pot I started listening to podcast and then within six months I had a podcast, and then within six months of that I was being paid to edit other people's podcasts. And then now, like two and a half years later, from that first podcast I listened to, I now have a podcasting company. So it's very weird. Are you are you looking to? Are you going to be able to do this full time? Are you still going to be working like on the side? I enjoy doing other things, so I think that's a factor, but I think I'll be able to give up waitressing. Still, good for you some point. So that because and I'll still keep doing my I run murder mystery events and D D still. So I get paid to do that. Okay, so when I get paid to be a nerd? Yeah, and come on, great, I just started hosting a Trivia night up and Hilliard on Tuesdays, which is very go. That's it has been fun. I'm like it paid to be at Dork. This is great. granded, I don't know half these questions either, but I got the answers in front of me, so I look smart. M It doesn't matter if you were thrown one to write them or anything, you're the one saying them out loud. So obviously you're you're the king of all nerds courtnet room and that time they're, they're, they're all paying for their wings and their beer. I'm not. So yeah. So, yeah, that's I remember when you when you launch the facebook page. I was like good for her, like that's just you're living the dream. You're getting paid to do what I do for free and in a basement, and that's that's just so cool. It's really cool. Yeah, it's and it's fun bringing people into podcasting and kind of like more of a business kind of area. So, I mean it's fun getting to do the just general like any interview kind of podcast, but it's interesting actually like trying to work with existing companies and building podcast for them and things like that. So yeah, and so, so you're main the main thing you do is is the audio side or like, yeah, just the editing in the the cutting out all the ums and audio technician work, Jeez, editing, a little bit of the social media and then all of the hosting and stuff, because a lot of people don't mind deal with that. So you just go to them and say, just record the show and I'll take care of everything else. Now, even that, just be here at this time. Wow, I'll show up and we'll record this and then within a said amount of time you will have a podcast. That's so cool. Yeah, I've always I've always kind of entertained the idea of like buying like a studio space and and setting it up something akin to like what datv has, but, you know,...

...more more just space, is people to work with and that people like pay for like a monthly membership to just come in and just use the space. I've been talking about that forever. Like we just need a podcasting kind of coop. Yeah, you know, you pay ten bucks a month, then you get access to the room and there's there's there's edit bays and and you know, vocal booths and just, you know, cut down on some software. Brice saying to probably kidding of everybody chipped in ten bucks a month to get a full suite of adobe. Yeah, which is Great, which I'm currently payingful me too, that's yeah, and I love it and I'm like man, this is costing money, but man, I can't go back after this. I started with just audition because that's all I needed for work, and then I took another job out, a contracting job last year around this time, and they hired me to do some video work as well, and I was like, I'm gonna have to pay for the whole suite now, and so I bought it for a year and I was like, I'm still like paying that higher monthly costs and I'm like now I'm like okay, but now I like all of these and I need to give it all. Like I just edited a PDF. Oh, it's great, and I was like what, I can just rewrite this PDF. This is awesome. I've been. I've been because of the the film I made last year was the first thing I've ever done on premiere. MMM. It just gotten the swimspom splitting it with a friend of mine from work and I just gotten premiere and I was like, I'm going to learn how to use premiere on this film, and it was so easy to learn and I had so much fun with that. And then I've been using audition and then like I don't have to reach out to people to make my graphics anymore. Like I've been learning how to use photo show. I've been practicing making Pratt. I'm very bad at it, but I didn't ask you. How do you know how to do like little lower third stuff, like I can't. I haven't figure out how to make those like move or anything yet, like you see like on a newscast. Yeah, I've been prepped because we tried doing for dead serious, for the the scripted show I'm on. We tried doing a panel with the main cast and I was trying to do lower thirds with everybody as they came on, and I'm getting there. They look rough as far as I haven't figured out the animation side of it yet either, but as far as just making them work, and granted I was using this through obs so it come was doing the light that. So I'm getting there. That's that's I'm still right now just having fun with like I can make stuff transparent and you know, but I'm having fun with it. It's it's a learned I learned a little bit of it in college, but it's been so long it definitely takes a lot of playing around, but when you figure something out it's kind of awesome. It's a lot of I want to do this specific thing, let me go to youtube and find a video of somebody doing it, showing me how to do it, and then I try to remember my my cheat is Camba, like I want to. I won't even mess with a Debbie sometimes. So it just like I've got five minutes, I'll just use cam. But it's fine, it's fine. It works so nice. Yeah, I've got a couple of those. I've got video leap on my phone for wanting to me to edit something on the go. or I went ahead and paid the two hundred and ninety nine a month for, for me maddic maker APP. But I can make like Grat I can make stuff for instagram really quick on the go, and then it's there's no want and just upload and it's just done. And the easy when you can just automatically one button you're already uploaded, like done. I don't like paying for stupid shit like that, but look, I have a decent job, I can afford. I can afford two bucks a month. It's fine. At a certain point you just are like yeah, this is worth the money. Yeah, it's I'm saving time, I'm saving myself a headache. It's fun. I get I'm fine. I can live with two bucks a month. So you are a massive star wars fan. Yes, holy crab, massive, massive. I mean we press up in a costume and love the raging trades. Yes, that's me. So rise of skywalker happened. It did. How it happen? How you feeling on that? Um, I only saw it twice, which isn't a lot. Right. I feel like I might watch him. I'll definitely watch it when it comes out on Disney plus or DVD or whatever happens first, but I just I don't know. I feel like I just need to sit away from it for a while and just let it seep in. It's a lot to process. It was a lot of movie. One of my main comments was, I mean, I guess it's like, I guess it's bad to think this, even as a star wars fan, but I don't think it should have been a trilogy. That was a lot of information. They could have done two movies with it. I I now I unlike most people, I actually enjoyed the last Jedi. I enjoyed it as well. I thought it was actually pretty good. It was different. It definitely it was definitely more challenging for people to watch. It was some people just wanted their star wars. It was, it was it's it was it was a it was star wars with like an art tourist take on it, you...

...know, like it wasn't it wasn't a movie that was made to fit in with the rest of Star Wars. It was definitely Ryan Johnson's own take, and I like Ryan Johnson. But my thing was, after watching the rise of Skywalker, I realized just how little of the overall story the least last Jedi actually told. MMM, like, if you look at it as like you've got three parts to a trilogy, each part needs to tell about a third of the story and it felt like, in the grand scheme of things, the last Jedi told like maybe one percent. Of this only takes place with the course of like a day, maybe like two or three days. Yeah, no, I mean, I'm getting my days all mixed up right, because I usually know all but of course they changed it. Yeah, sorry, can I have a mini rant for a minute please? Okay, so star wars timeline used to be a by bby after the battle of Yavin, before the battle of Yavin. Right, cool, as how wikipedia set up. Everything's good. Then they changed it to the battle of end or like recently, within like the past, like three years. Right, okay, because we're there now. I mean I mean we are there at this point. We are after the bank was actually I think it was actually after when Disney bought it. When Disney bought and like switched over the cannon, they switched it to before the battle of vendor and after the battle vendor, which means all the dates were just like three years off. Oh, so they applied it to three they applied it to everything. Yes, I thought you meant just these movie know, they change the time system where like everything's written. I don't like that. But they did it again within the past year. They changed it to before the destruction of star killer base and after, where the discretist our killer base. So there are three different like ways that time is because, like I'm a Nert, I like having my dates like right, like I know when that person was born, like what year in the Star Wars unders, like. I like knowing those kind of things. But like all the new dates that come out are thirty three years off or something like that, because they's just ridiculous, especially now when you've got stuff like Mandalorian, which is, I think it's like five years after battle of Battle of endor, and then you've so it's seven. Wait, now I'm messing up right. So this is what happens. This is what happens, though. I mean it's five years after the battle of endor, but it's four years after the battle of Jack who, and it's and nobody knows the battle of Jack who falls at this point because it's so jack who's a year after the battle of endoors. It really it is. Yeah, it only took them a year at a pretty much way about them. Fire makes sense. Yeah, but I mean that's a lot of clean up, because a lot of people are like, Oh, the battle of endor happened, obviously everything was done, but then you're like, no, there's a lot of other space fighting and then that ended with the battle of Jack Whoi. I mean you know, if you go to the Owen end of the old legends cannon, you know you've got like the remnant forces that were there under the under grand animal thrown and everything. So many people are tuning out of the show at this point. Yeah, and then you just jump and start out and when people are born, like Ben's been, Ven Solo is born around the time of the battle of joy, like random facts. And Baby Yoda, who knows? Yeah, no, he's an average a hole years old. That he was fifty. I thought it was a hundred. No, it was fifty. It was fifty, which places him being born round the end of the clone wars. Yeah, no, that would have been before that great rate for the clone wars. Yeah, it's fun. It's fun messing around with that. Guess, Little Baby Other, oh my gosh, I didn't see that. And the cute, so cute friend of my mom's crochet it for for Christmas. It's that. I love it. Even a little buddy's so good. It's right there with girl. We had to switch over to the MANDALORIAN. Oh, yeah, we're yeah, we're going to talk about it all. I love the Mandalorian. Yeah, so damn much. It's so good. I like what they did with it. I think they made the transition to TV show well, I think. I think. I think our we just generally likes it because they're like literally, they didn't do anything in like majorly like worrible with it, like it's just it's good. For the first time in a long time we're getting something genuinely new with Star Wars. We're seeing a side of the Star Wars you galaxy we've never seen. This is the first time we've seen a bathroom. And Star Wars, like people don't realize the first time we was the first time we've seen people just like living their lives, you know, as opposed to being rebels versus imperials or separatist versus the the republic. It's just regular schmows in Star Wars. Well, the good thing is like, unlike a movie where...

...you have to decide to cut a tiny little scene here, at ty little scene, they're like more stuff and kind of stick around for a TV show and some more just like mundane stuff gets thrown in. It's nice. It's a good slower pace to take these stories at something that I was surprised by because the episode is art long. They're like forty minutes tops. They squeeze a lot of story into those forty minutes. Are Pretty good about it. Yeah, they don't. They don't play around or waste a lot of time. They just they just tell what they need to tell. Sytis isn't feel fast, is what I'm like trying to like. Like it doesn't feel like like last Jedi, for example, or rise of skywalker. I mean like it just felt fast. There's just so much going on so quickly. And then the TV shows just like a leisure not lea surely stroll through star wars, but like this is you kind of get the feeling sometimes like you had those those bike troopers joking around outside's one of the final episodes, one of the best moments of that show. Like that's not something that would get be able to stay in a movie. That's something that a good cut. Like well, no, because that because that episode was directed by Taich Oy TT. So I was kind of like that, yeah, this when I saw at the end, like directed by Taike Oy tt, I was like, yeah, that makes sense. That's a's just like fake. We come back to base yet? Nah, he's a he just killed a guy. Yeah, he see the guy. Yeah, yeah, I wouldn't get back at I would just note there. Yeah, it's okay, only only tyke could pull that off. Good, so good, although I did want to kill him when he punched baby Yoda. Yeah, but how dare you? They actually got to like experiment and play around with things a little bit more, where people were the movies get criticized for playing around too much and trying new things. Star Wars fans are finicky people. Yes, we are very kind of what you were kind of what we're talking about with the with the rise of skywalker thing, feeling rushed at. I think that kind of goes back to my point about the last Jedi not telling a lot of story, because then Jji was like, man, we got a lot of stuff to cover in this one movie. Now I think he's just trying, him trying to recover, though, because like he didn't get to tell his story, so he was just cramming that into why should he should have just done the whole trilogy. Yeah, I mean I loved Ryan Johnson. Yeah, but it just felt so jumpy, and I mean I you probably did this. I watched the first two the day of yeah, before seeing the third line. I got call back up. Yeah, but I just felt weird. Yeah, I am felt like jumping all around and like somehow, even though so much happened, questions were not answered at the same time. Yeah, I like I want to see more with Ray, but I also am very open to Disney star wars like taking a break from continuing this story and just and just telling some other stories. And they had a lot of pressure tru on them, I think, finishing this up, and I think it's very easy for a people to be like, oh, they ruined it, but we had such high expectations, even higher than like the prequels, you know. Yeah, well, I think the prequels are part of the reason why the expected, the extasitions were so high. But you gotta do better than that. Okay, you got to do better than sand, which is pretty much why they made a best of yeah, for the Force Awakens. It was pretty much what that and people. Most people like that and some people don't like smart it was. It was definitely smart. Yeah, I got to reintroduce everybody to this post post empire world of we haven't been in this is area of as you've been watching, like rebels and clone wars. We haven't been in this side of Star Wars in almost twenty years. Yeah, so it was it was an easy transition. Yeah, but I am so looking forward to OBI WAN. I need it. Yeah, now, yeah, it's if they can figure out their script issues. Don't, don't ruin this guy's don't ruin this for me. We begged and beg I was in Chicago when e McGregor came out on stage. I was so happy, you's go be back. He's like yes, I'm playing obiwan again, and I was. I was watching the live stream and in the lobby of the hotel room and I was cheering and everybody's looking at me like I'm crazy and I said no, guys, ob you Greger's coming back. Is Obiwan. Like five of the people were like wait, what, seriously, like everybody got in on it. Everybody loves you and McGregor, as well know. You know. The thing, though, is he could really come back if we wanted to Redo the prequels, because, like, if you think about a Ben's really old, he's aged a lot, and johnny years, like you're McGregor, could come back still as the to the PREQUEL. Yeah, yeah, the man, the man, the man doesn't age. Let's be I mean, let's go easy. Like if you watch the PREQUELS, like and thatly Portman looks like Natalie Portman in one, two and three. Obi Wan is the only one who actually looks like he like ages with the time it does, but it's still the same actor. Some fabulous facial hair, a beard.

A beard is fan it's not good, not so much in clone wars, but in in revenge of the said that beard is fantastic, pretty great beer. That weird mullet thing he had going on. There was a lot of problems with there's there's a lot of hairstyle and fashion choices and the prequels that are interesting. Attack of the clones is so bad I don't like the problem is there so many costume option. There really are. I'm going through trying to figure out what I want to do costume wise next Sark side Ray, dark side ray was hot. I'm just saying I have a ray costume. I'm gonna do something different. Like I there we have different people. We have a lot of people that dress ups right locally. So I'm just like, I want to try something different, but I don't know what to do. And I'm like, Oh well, pad me has twenty million outshakes in the prequels to these. WHO's the WHO's the one that that Poe was hitting on and rise the SKYWALKER? Oh, I forga was her name shoot. Do you know what? It probably probably should have did a kid more time talking about her character. Maybe really bad important, maybe because she was cool. Yeah, and I forget who played her too, but yeah, that was that was a cool get up. Is Cool as cool get up? That might be a good option. Yeah, that gets into one of my other problems with kind of the new trilogy is so it's not a lot of just strong connective like character development. I feel like, like the original trilogy, the trio was like they just had this amazing like chemistry together and like Po didn't meet Ray until the very end of the second movie right, like they didn't have any time to like interact and play off each other or anything like that until this movie. I when I saw the last Jedi at the end, he's like Hig, I'm post, like I'm right, and I'm like, well, you talked. You guys have met. Oh wait, no, they haven't met before we met. That was an oversight and I'm a big sucker for like a good trio and like a series like it's very important to me. Even with just like cold storage, when we were doing rewrites and stuff, we only had like two main cast members and then, like I guess they interacted with like the AI computer a lot, but I was like maybe really cool that there was like another person for these people to talk to, and Harrison's like yeah, of course, and it makes a world of difference because there's just a more people like in that space. So just like really just act together and make this story because I love Poe. I know post so good. I Love Oscar Isaac and Finn. I felt like they started off strong and force awakens and it's like with every movie he just got more and more unbearable. I think he kind of he made character development and by the end of the movie it's like they forgot about it in the next one. Yeah, that's what I think. That's one of my band proms, like you developed and then like, Nope, he just turned into he turned into the comic relief like in last Jedi where he's running around naked in the in the back to suit just and I'm like that, yeah, this is this. And then and then they completely make his entire sub plot pointless with the CANTO BITES UFF and I'm like cool, way to way to use that character there, folks, way. Okay, not sure about that. The Guy who is the guy who was front and center. And All the marketing for force awakens, like you barely saw a ray in any of the trailers. It was all thin. I was like, Oh, so this is the main character. And Yeah, they were trying to mess with us and I mean I guess it worked at the time, but like it kind of just kind of sidelined them afterwards. Well, they definitely is like for sensitive. That's what they keep saying and what like. They didn't show that enough. It's all that telling US afterward. It's been not showing it. Yeah, it's like all the day, I have a been this and all the all the Finn Post stuff like okay, dangle these could possibly queer characters in front of you and then take them away right because there's just a lot of like director stuff and like tweets and stuff that were like official from like coming from up top, and they're like, oh, there's a little bit of this, but it was like all just queer bating and I hate that so much. I'm never one. I don't like necessarily going at like saying like Oh, it was this one person's problem, but but man, can we get Kathleen Kennedy and let me let me. Let me follow that up with this. Kathleen Kennedy as a producer is is second to none. If you look at her production credits and the things she's worked on her career Hollywood, she is amazing. But you can tell she just doesn't know or care about star wars and having her in charge of everything, when she's basically just saying to her it's like it's just so easy, Oh, just make star wars movies. It's like, no, there needs to be this like what made the strongest parts of the prequels and and the original trilogy was there was a they wrote an overlying story and cut into three parts,...

...and with this one they didn't do it. They just said, you make your movie, all right, you pick up after him, all right, you pick up after him. As I that's it was messy and jumpy. You know, they needed to take a take a leaf from like the way, you know, the way marvel does things, as Kevin figgy had this story sinner locking. He's Charlie Day in that meme from from it's always like in Philadelphia with all the yarn, all the pins, and they all make sense, man, trust me. That's that's what you need to do and the more you do that and connect this universe, like you bring in parts for like Mandalorian, any new content you make, it's interlocking. That's how it should feel and that's why this universe, that's why I like the man Lauren to was at the end. You have you have this tie in to to the seat, to the TV shows with the Dark Saber. When I saw that I was like so baby Yoda. I did not freak out that much. I was like, Oh, I's Cue. Yeah, that was that was more just our ful saber. I lost my show. I kind of. I was. I'm really bummed. I watched. I watched the first episode by myself, but I watched the following episodes with my boyfriend, who isn't the biggest star Wars Fan, not compared to me, at least right so. But then I was like, I can't wait, he's out of town, I'm going to watch this final episode because I literally just made it as like. I'm sorry, we watch TV shows together, but this is different. If I want to watch this for me, I am going to watch it, but I wish I would have waited it because I like I just saw like a hint of it. I was like, Oh my God, Oh my God, I know what that is, and I was like I was on my feet like yelling at the TV. I was like yeah, it's I am one of the moment like that. One of the moment like that was when I was watching Solo and mall shows up at the end. Oh yeah, and had he had the broken inquisitor Lightsaber, and I was like they are finally tieing the shows into this show. and and then everybody boycotted solo and we're never going to find out what the whole story behind that was. But I'm still just kind of like they're trying and effort was made and and I'm I can't because because the dark saber is so embedded in mandalorian culture, it's so awesome and it's also it's a black light saber. It's really cool black white saber. It's awesome. Then you get into just kind of like back you're just kind of like, oh, can they get into some like old republic stuff now? That's what I want and that's been that's been talk, because you want to see the Jedi at their height, like you want to see that. That's cool because because the prequels wasn't the Jedi at their height. No, that was the Jedi at their worst. If I'm completely it was like the fall of Rome of the Jedi. That's not that was one way. The Jedi were just so high on themselves and we're just so sure everything was fine that they just stopped paying attention. Yeah, and I've been going back and replaying knights of the old republic again and it's so, it's so good, man, it does. As far as the graphics cope does not hold up. But they were talking at one point because they were going to have benny off and Weiss from game of thrones do an old republic trilogy. Was the rumor, and then they that before after for the final sea it was after. Oh, that was after. Yeah, that she didn't want that. That last season the game. So it's and that's come from somebody who's not even like I'm not even. I've never actually watched before the final season, I never watched a full episode of game of thrones. Yeah, I just it was one of those where I knew I would like it. I just never got around to getting on it. But because I'm in such a heavy game of thrones family, I was able to watch the final season and everything made sense. I didn't have any questions because I was up all the memes and shit. But the season was so bad, just but was just generally objectively bad tellery just for a story perspective and like a TV perspective, is just like what is. It was rushed. There was there was that whole episode where you just couldn't see anything because the cinema and the guy was like, my cinematography was fine, just turned the brightness on your TV. Shouldn't have to. Shouldn't have to know. No, you work in film. You make it look like it's dark without it being dark. Right. That is a basic principles called shooting night for shooting day for night. That's not a new concept. It's not. You don't have to. You're not inventing something new. It literally already exists. That's a thing. It's just and then, yes, story. Why? I will say, though, one of the episodes, the want of the episode where where they're on the dragons is destroying the whole fucking city and the editing between Aria running through the town trying to get the safety and the hound in the mountain fighting. The editing on that episode was Oscar Worthy. It was some of the best editing I've ever seen the television show, creative wise. But anyway, they were going to have them do an older public trilogy and I was like Yes, that please, set at the thousand years...

...in the past, and and and and had it. But I keep saying I'm people are like, Oh, the next trilogy, it's going to be right after Nope, you gotta jump into the future, you gotta go back to the past. Do not do anything right in this immediate because it is a giant sandbox they get to work with. Yeah, it is a massive and there's so much lore already built into it. Like if they go to any planet that's already been talked about, they get Kudo points. If they bring up any kind of technology that's already been used, they get Kuda points. Yeah, like literally, there's so much they can do. Give me something new to and like make an enjoyable experience for Star Wars fans. Like it's not that hard. We're actually not that hard to please. We're picking up, but we're not that hard to please. Just give us even like if stiff like ends up goofy, like there's like a creature. So being looks funny. Usually we find it adorable at the end. We met, we get over it. Yeah, we'll make fun of it, like people made fun of porks for a long time, but now porks are Torrib who doesn't want to pork? Everybody wants to pork. Come on, that's seen. We're choice cooking one of the other ones look scared afraid. Everyone in the theater that immediately was was just like Oh, plus, you know the porks. Look, they had to work around the fact there was wildlife. They're pot of beans, pots of poppins. They had, they had, they had like like a week they were allowed to shoot on that island. Yeah, gotting, Michael. Is Not an easy environment to shoot on. No, we're easy to access and that that and my family went to Ireland over the summer and they got to go see it from a distance and it which is so cool. I want to go there. I wish I could have gone. Yeah, they had, they had a week to shoot on that island and they made it work. And Yeah, they had to shoot around the poppin. So boom, here's a bird like alien. We love the it's Star Wars. We Love Cute Aliens. It's just that's what we do. We love to hate the e walks. Are The e walks dumb and pointless? Yes, do I want one? Absolutely. Should have been a planet of Wookies, possibly, which, you know, we old legend goes that was the original plan and I think, yeah, I think that was it. Just want to makes me a little cuter and kid friendly, because it was supposed to be on KCHIC and then well, but there was all kinds of problems with production surrounding returned the Jedi because George was like, I don't want to make this right now, I want to go do something else, and Fox was like no, no, we see dollar signs. You make, you make your Star Wars. He's like, all right, fine, is what you get. I'm gonna go do something else now. I'M gonna go make Howard the duck or something. I don't know. That happened. Hour the duck happening. We let it happen. Nope, it's in happen. But now we've got so we've got an older public series of films in the work. They're working on the CASSIE and indoor series for Disney plus. Right, yeah, which I'm I could be into. Yeah, I read. That sucks. Already know he's going to die, but you know, well, I only knew going into that movie was gonna die. Cool, it's still gonna be a cool show. Yeah, but like at a certain point I was like, Oh, the show ended. Now he's dead and it's a it's a chance to take another shot at the PREQUEL era. Because if you read, did you run, if you ever read catalyst, was the rogue one prequel novel? Oh, I don't know if I did or not. It was basically about how like galen or so developed the the KIMBER technology for the death star and like you know, when Gin was first born. And it's during like it starts off during the end of the separatist republic, the clone wars, and you know cassie and Andor's family, they were separatists. You know, we talked about in rogue on how he's been in this fight since he was six years old. That's a cool chance to get another look at the clone wars from a different perspective. Or it's not all shiny and Jedi versus Jedi versus droids. Basically we got a little bit that during the clone wars TV show. Yeah, any bad did when you had like people being like, oh well, I'm a separatist and I'm really fine and this is how I like this. It was it was just a political it was just a political thing. Yeah, I was like literally like, Oh, my plan is separatists, like that's how it is, like that's why I like the problem I had with one of the prosing with the the prequels was it was all politics, sex. It was bad politics, like, it wasn't. It wasn't an entertaining it wasn't challenging. Yeah, like it wasn't, like it was no good for what. It wasn't a bluff, it wasn't. It wasn't. It wasn't a battle of ideals. It was just good versus evil. MMM. And I was like, oh no, I want to see like actual arguments, like like logical, intelligent arguments, like the Democrat vs Republican. I don't care which side you're on, as long as you like can tell me why intelligently. Don't tell me you're a Republican because you hate Democrats and tell me you're a democrat. Is He really? Yeah, so I want to hear like a sound, logical argument for why you're a separatist and we got some of that in the clonel also builds on to like who the main characters are fighting a against and like kind of backs up like, Oh, this person just naturally evil or...

...bad. No, they have different motivations and they are trying to accomplish something and it's kind of dives a little bit more into that kind of what the villain, quote unquote, is thinking, and that's a I understand that is inherently star wars. Like Star Wars has always been light side versus dark side, good versus evil, but I liked that in gray there is some gray and the movies don't always poke at that. Last Jedi did. HMM. You know, that's one of the things I really liked about Luke's character. was he even he was kind of like not, none of them are really right or wrong, like like the a lot of bad stuff happened because the Jedi Word Dung d was like that's some of the best writing I've ever seen in start. I like this. So many people hated that. They're like, this isn't my little supposed to be all good nuts. Yet he's a perfect human. There's nothing wrong with them. No, he's a human he's fly. Also, let's be honest, young young luke kind of sucks. Let's be honest. There's a little whine. He's a little whiney. Little Whiney Luke is a lot better in the books than he is in the movies. You go back and read like the old cannon of like the the the one he had. We had the Jedi Temple and through the mine side. No, Ha, sorry, I bringing that up. It's so funny. That book the sequel that never was. Thank God. Oh Man, I did like I did like that. Just to get on the positive side, one of the things I really liked about rays of skywalker was that scene with young luke and Laya tree. Is, Oh my God, so cool to see and I also I really liked that. You know, life is what it is. They had to work around Carrie Fisher dying. Originally nine was going to be mostly her movie. They did a really good job working around that. I feel like they did the Max that, like they went right up to the line and didn't pass it. Like they got just enough like stuff in there so it wasn't weird, but they kind of stayed away from too much, so it would feel weird in a different way, because I know they had to, because they because they hadn't even started filming when she died, they had to use basically unused footage, use footage, and like you can definitely there's parts where kind of like swirls and you're like, oh, what's the back of someone else's head? Well, especially when she dies, like that death scene was all the stand in. Yeah, but they did a really good it was really good. It was nicely done. And and here's the thing, and and I like force Awagins, I felt nothing when Han Solo died. Really I felt I felt like it hadn't been earned. HMM. I needed at least one more scene between him and Kylo Ren because the fact that that was the first scene the two of them interacting. I needed a build up, a development of the emotional key Harrison Ford on the process. That was that was the problem, was they were running killed off in their original like but like, even if I you just had like because like there's a deleted scene where where Kylo rend goes onto the Millennium Falcon, when he finds it in his like exploring it and touching things and he holds the dice and which, by the way. When did the dice become a major thing? It's like somebody decided, like at the purchase of like I don't know when it like happened, but some point someone was like, you know, we should tie into every movie from now on the dice. Because I was like, wait, where did those even I don't remember those being a thing. As was again, if you go back and watch new hope, they're right there and I'm like, okay, cool, I never I'm thirty years old, been watching star wars since I was a kid. I never noticed those, just some random thing or like Yep, the the dice are very, very important now the point where they incorporated into solo he I think it was talked about a little bit like the dice are like the winning dice he won the ship with or something like. I think that was like a thing originally, but that wouldn't even work with like the new it wasn't. That wouldn't work with the way things aren't because because he steals that speeder and and Kira just says, Oh, here, here go hangs them on the mirror and I'm like, Oh, so he just has those. They don't even meet. They're not even anything special. He just has them. Yeah, okay, whatever. But I really liked that when Leya died, HMM, like like it affected everyone because, like he's in the middle of that fight with with ray and it makes both of them pause. You know, Finn Notices it, like it makes everybody just go, Oh shit, something just happened and it it kind of becomes the crux in the movie and I really liked that. I because we got to spend more time with Leia. So when she died like leg it was just like no, I mean it was coming, but no, yeah, they each ended up in the end getting their own movie and dying in their movie. It's kind of weird trying to bring back these old characters and at the same time establish this...

...new caste. So it was a weird balance at points. I think that's why some of the movies just felt so fast and crowded, because there's just so many. They're trying to build these new characters up, but they were also trying to maintain these old characters, and that's that's the that's the kind of the risk you take. Is Like we want we want to have the old true the old cast the old trio back and and have that that nostalgic factor and that's great, but yeah, they're all sixty years old. Now you're going to be killing them off. We've got to have somebody else to carry this story and I thought I thought Daisy Ridley and ray was it was a great choice. I really want to see more of that character. I love that she built her lightsaber out of her staff. MMM. That made me so happy. I was like yeah, and it's and it's like rustic and kind of half hazardly thrown together, and so it's one that's yellow. Yeah, one of the pros offline, all the like the costuming groups and stuff on facebooks, like I'm in a bunch of ray groups and like a lightsaber forms and stuff. Is that? Immediately after people sees that something, they have to build it. Yeah, so in that NU double double lights double bladed lightsaber came out, like we played one. Yeah, within like a day someone had a prototype of already and they're like showing it off. There's a there's a podcast called Star Wars explained, hosted by Alex Damon and his wife Molly, and she's the loves doing Ray cosplays and she had done and dark side Ray cosplay years ago. HMM. And so when that popped up in the trailer she was like what? What? And so she's like, somebody made me that switch played lightsaber now, uh, because she just had the regular, like Darth Maul staff one. But when I say that, the cosplay she put together matched what was in the movie like like verbatim. It was almost creepy. It was like did you have a credit on this movie and didn't tell anybody? Well, the thing is was ray. All the ray costumes is. They're pretty much they take elements from each other. They're kind of all the same style. There's no major costume differences right like they're all just variations and like different colors. So she's kind of wears the same thing. It really is the same thing. That's another reason why I don't want to kind of make another ray costume because I'll be making almost the same thing. Ashley, I made one of the ones that's a little bit different. So I mean, do you have a do you have a favorite ray version of race costume from the three movies? Well, I made the the one from the fight scene in last shot. I that's my favorite one. Yeah, my favorite look on Right A. I love is my favorite at the time. I saw that in the trailers and I decided to make that one. It took me like two years, but I made it. So I like I like the gray and I like I like the look with her hair down. I'm not sure what it is at that whole look. I'm like that's that's a good ray look a little bum they went away from that and rise of Skywalker, but think, yeah, they kind of just went back to the original. Like it look a little as Ratty, a little less like she yeah, a little, a little less. I've been living on my own and an ad at for twenty years. Yeah, kind of thing. What do you think of the PALPATINE twist? Everybody sighs and groans. I just HMM. Yeah, I just feel like they just pulled US along so much and I finally had come to the point where like yeah, she's no one and that's awesome, and then like this happens and I'm just like it's cool, but it would be more cool if you wouldn't have just pulled me along for so long, back and forth between like who is she, who isn't she, kind of saying see, I never, I never believe she was no one. Really I always thought she was a clone of Luke. Okay, I always thought she was a clone of Luke because when she touches the Lightsaber and force awakens, is with the right hand and that's the one that Luke had lost. HMM. There was the hole when she goes into that dark side pit on the planet with Luke to ought to when she sees that whole like revealing who she is and there's a billion of her, I was like she's a clone. She's a clone because there's precedent for that in the old books to where the emperor had cloner. And then, especially when we got into food and really cool. Well, then we got into the trailer for for rises Skywalker when, like you know, Emperor's back is because the emperor cloned himself too, and they were seeing parts of this or I was like no, no, this is gonna be some cloning shit. This is going to be awesome. And then when I got in I was like, okay, this isn't what I thought it was, but I'm open to it. It's not what I thought, but I needed more time to actually like understand and like get into it, and I feel like there was like all such a vague amount of information about like who her parents were. Like yeah, she's the granddaughter, but like who were her parents? Like so way, so you're still don't understand. Telling me that the emperor got busy, like he had a son. Yeah, he had a son and then wife. He didn't keep an eye on like he wasn't like that. Sun Wasn't like became the next palpatine or didn't become like a...

...dark fader apprentice or something like what. That kid was just like locked like just let to do whatever he wants. Like what? Oh, well, he went on the run. It's like, okay, but palpatine was able to keep dibbs on Luke and Leiah. Yeah, all these years, you can't keep dibbs on his own son. I don't, I don't know. It just didn't seem. It just don't felt really weird. I was I was open to the ideas. The execution was just a little off for me. Yeah, it just weird. But the cloning would have been cool. Yeah, even if she was a clone of him or I don't even know, like something, because it wouldn't make because again, like when she touched the lights, he was with the right hand. It was the first thing she sees is that fight on cloud city. It's like it would make sense to rule the plumb. Okay, fine, whatever. But again I think that's one thing that people get caught up at, is their own expectations versus what actually they're like. Just because it's not what you expected or not what you wanted doesn't mean it's bad. I had a lot of expectations going into the first too, so I really tried not to have any on this last one. But still it's just like, Oh, yeah, why did they do it like this? Thu? Even if I didn't have I had expectations. After I saw it was like go, well, I get it on this, like get done that. Yeah, it is what it is. Yeah, it was entertaining. That's important thing. Like it's fun to watch and entertaining. At the end of the day, that's what you want a movie to be and it's you know what, but you also it's done, it's over with, Yep, and we can just move on. Can't change it. We have the MANDALORIAN season two is coming this summer, fall, August, Musher where that falls? Obi Wan's being worked on, cassie and or other stuff. They just announced some new project.

She's got some new book series thing coming out that's like kind of something like old, old school, like Jedi on their prime type stuff. The Jedi on the cover looks a lot like Katie sack off. Yeah, I just saw that cover. Yeah, looks. There's a lookie. It was some excalibur looking lightsaber and I'm like, I'm into it. He's looking ropes too. It always looks screwd when they work close I know every time I would read the old young Jedi night books where it was it was wookie chewy's nephew was a Jedi, and I was like, SOS he see where a robe, because that's weird. Also, it's so weird. Weird like that start out proud where it started. Our people are like, oh, that will that character needs to be wearing like pants or something. It's weird that this like free creaturesm where and now we're like don't put clothes on it. It looks. Look whenever. Let me see Donald Duck. He wears a shirt with no pants. When we get that out of the shower we put a towel around as ways and means. You told me this, Dude, just free ball it. What the Hell? Oh Man. So, so that. So if anybody's even still left listening to us after we so we've talked about podcasting. We've talked about star wars at nauseum. We've talked about your new project and your kickstartern thing. What else is going on in the life is of Anna Web? Oh my gosh, mostly the kickster, most of the kickstarter. I have gotten to do some DD stuff recently. So the gem study cat cafe host events that I run sometimes. So I've ran two murder mystery events and I just finished at my second D event. They're really fun. I love writing them. They're super quirky. I made like propped for the props for the last one, so it kind of was like like an escape room kind of vibe as well as fun. So cool. Yeah, I want to go to the cat cafe. Well, I am running one more DD UM event next month. Yeah, yeah, or this month, depending on when this comes out. We arch. This is coming out this Friday, so be marched by Friday. No, it'll be titles. The twenty eight. Okay, literally the end of Oh knows, the leap beer. It's a leaper. We got one more. They put the calendar up at work with our schedules on it and they's a February twenty nine and I was like, is my boss bad at schedules or is a leap? Hear like now to leave your I was like, okay, I can't remember. But we did a they make like murder mystery like like premade board games or stuff. Now you can buy, oh where. It comes with character profiles and little sealed envelopes. Oh, yeah, you can buy and yeah, it's like, if you have this many players, give everyone this envelope. If you have this many players too, in this envelope. And we literally like had like a DI dinner party where we all dressed up and just played in character the whole night. It was so much fun.

Yeah, I cannot recommend it enough. Yeah, if you get a chance to do any kind of murder mystery event, they're really fun. Though. We did we did to burner mystery events back in January and I had pe. I had two people. They showed up. They look out their character information and stuff like that. The game and started, people were talking to each other, looking around, looking for clues, and these two people they just were like Nope, I thought this was something else and they just like left. No, yeah, they just try to like sneak out. But like it's there's some like interactive like stuff. You have to do a little bit of role play and stuff like. Not Everything's laid out. You have to like kind of work with your character and just kind of improfit. So for them, I guess. But have you gone over to to this d twenty bar yet? I Love He's twenty. Okay, I just went there for the first time on my birthday. You did. I've been going there since they open. I had heard about it and heard about it and never had the time to go and I took my birthday weekend off and I was like I'm gonna go check this place out and it was great. Unfortunately, I also went there like right after New Year, so they were out of every thing, but I got a sonic screwdriver and it was I've had their sons sonic screw drivers, good litch. They have a lot of special drinks, specially during their Harry Potter event. Harry Potter Olympics, which is coming up this month as well, in March and of the month. Yes, I usually bring my snake, Alfredo, with me to the event. You have a snake? I do have a snake. I'm good. I'm terrified a snakes. He's a ball pithon and he's like white, creamy color. So his name's off Fredo. That's funny. Yeah, he's a cute noodle, terrified of snakes. Yeah, I go to events there and I bring Alf Fredo and people are like, Oh, it's all Fredo's mom. They don't know my name. They know they know all Fredo's name. That's important part. So Real, lady, that Brings Alfredo. Yeah, yeah, my name Savannah, but sure, that's fine. It doesn't work very well because I'm not a stiltor in. So are you? I'm a raven cloth. Not Surprising, it's not. Oh, it's not. I'm a HAPA puff. I'm a potato. That's fine. That's why I pops are particularly good finders. Yeah, well, I mean I know how to find a good bourbon, but that's very co there, and how to find the best taco places in town. Rusty tacos currently my favorite yeah, it's good. It's really good. My my buddy travis and I we try like every Thursday, because we work the same two hours on Thursday, we try to go to a different place in Dayton to eat lunch every week to try and do places. So we went to this place downtown called Texas beef and cattle. Well, I tell you, this is the best damn barbecue in the city of Dayton. I mean like nothing even remotely comparies. Okay, I will tell my friends that. Eat Me. Oh, it's right, you're a vegetarian. Sho's so sorry for they really good. Mac and cheese. Okay, if really good, man and cheese. Okay, six cheese, MAC and cheese. That's this way you live off of in a barbecue place when you're a vegetarian, the bread and the MAC and cheese. That's really you like hush puppies? Yeah, I haven't had a long time. They have good poppies. Yeah, them and city. Oh so this year in December coming up ten years vegetarian. Really? Yeah, wow, yeah, vegeiversary. Sure that's a thing. Well, good for you, though. That's really cool. Yeah, it's a long time ago. With that Bacon, you just kind of forget, after which I don't know. I waitress and I like serve like sandwiches with meat on it, and it's still like, Oh, here's your ham sandwich. Damn Right, I think this is your sandwich. I believe this is ham. It's bad. How much do you love peanut butter and Jelly, though, not a lot. And what? Because I ate so much of it? The first vegetarian, I lived off of peanut butter sandwiches and like carrots. HMM, and sometimes I would put carrots on the peanut butter. So well, actually, that probably actually to be pretty good. Your had like a chip sandwich, peanut butter and like potato chip sandwich. Yeah, I grew up in the S. yeah, I used to make those two because I didn't I didn't like I don't like jam on like sandwiches. Okay, so I would just eat peanut bra sandwiches like chips or like carrots. I don't know. I was a really bad I was a really picky eater when I became a vegetarian. Like I wouldn't eat a tomato. I didn't. I wouldn't touch an avocado. Hadn't had wha lake. The touch an Avocada. Oh, I'm ASSESSAV PADUS. I can't stand Avocados. I love having Avocados are so good. I Love Fried Green Tomatoes. Really ever had a frayed green tomato? I can't say...

I have. I don't think. So good. Huh? So good with with like thousand island dressing or like some just Balsamic vinegarrette that Dipp it in some balsamic. While Samic Vinegart is the best salad dressing. I'm not a big salad dressing person really. I'm an oil kind of like yeah, some olive oil and some manager or something like that. Those Lily's made this beat dressing a while ago and it was delicious. Also, is like pink, so I goes on top of salad. It's just like so bright and pretty. I usually I usually do balsamic Nigarette or I really like Wendy Salads. Don't know why, I just do. They have a pomegranate vinegarrette dressing on their apple peak and salad. It's so good. Pom Grant dressing is good. It's really good. I guess it's just like fruit or like specialty dressing. Is can be kind of good. Yeah, just Tony Mustard in general. I I yeah, I thought about going like like Pescetarian, because I do love seafood, but I feel like being a pesctarian is just being a vegetarian who can occasionally a Ford Seafood. Yeah, see if it's expensive. It is. Do you know what I actually recommend for people that are interested in kind of vegetarian, pastarian, whatever. What's that? It's just be a week day of Vegetarian. It's the week day of Vegetarian, and I even like a strict media of Vegetarian. Just like pick a few nights a week they are going to have really good, really good steak or like a really good fish. Like be very picky about when you do eat it, okay, and like only eat it when it's the best or you're making it home where you're going out. Like, if you're going to eat, put the put the effort into it. Make sure it's really good stuff. I can roll with that. I do the opposite. I have like one day a week where I'm just all this. I have a vegetarian day just so I can justify the other six days of the week. Then I'm the meatless Monday. Such yeahs, and that's also it's what we did. Yeah, my little brother, he's in college right now, but you know, he's not a big meat he's not a vegetating, he's not a big meat eater. He's like super like animal conscious and stuff like that, and so he's you know, he loved me. He loves chicken, hot dogs, but yeah, and pizza. But we would for a while we were doing like meatless Monday stuff and a lot of it. I was able to get in Bon bar with like, you know, the Veggie Burgers. They were fine. They've gotten really good or got only yeah, I'm really impressed. Like I'm scared to eat some because I'm like, I don't know what meat is like. But is this accidentally right? I haven't gone as far as a trying impossible whop. We're yet. Oh you really should. I'm try try the impossible burger, but, like I I different rush, you know, to have a lot of big burger king eater to begin with. Also, my thing with with with the wop of it. Archers. Do they love archers? There you go get them possible at archers. Archer be much better and you can get those awesome sweet potato fries. It's the only swee potatoes. Have you has the SWEEPATO fries, though? I have. Yeah, my mom loves sweet potatoes and so I, and every once in a while I'll try one again, especially with some place new twee potatoes don't do anything for me really. Yeah, never have. I don't know what it is. I love them on everything so good. Yeah, there was a place in town for a whild cup from manny brothers. It's based out of Pittsburgh, but there was one over in beaver creek and it was one of those places where like the sandwich weighed like ten pounds, but they also put Cole slaw and French fries on the Samewich and my dinner. Yeah, it really was. I got I got there, I got their fish sandwich. It was like they put it was almost like they put a whole fish on the sandwich. I was like it's took out like that much on each side from the other end of the Bun. You know what you're getting at least. Never ate the whole thing. Always had to take gether half of it home to eat. But they would put all the fries in the cold slaw, Pittsburgh style, on the sandwich. H But then you could also get a combo where you got more coal, saw and fries on the side and it's like who are you making this for? Someone who's very hungry? I guess so. All right.
