Hey guys, it's Mike Shay. Welcome to a new episode of the Basement Lounge. On this week's episode, Mike and I talk about the stellar victory of the Cleveland browns over the Pittsburgh steelers going into their first postgame, playoff, or post game, but postseason playoff runs in like over a decade. Bear in mind we did record this episode on Monday January eleven, so if things have changed since then, just remember that this episode was recorded ahead of time. So yeah, don't blame US if maybe they've since fallen from grace a little bit. I I don't fully understand how football works, so just you know, bless my heart and bless my ignorance.

And with that being said, let's get into the show, because thanks. Kind of moving off this a little bit, fucking the fucking browns man did holy Shit. I'm in a browns fan, but last night no healers that much, but I got a family full of browns fans and I was cheering with them. Holy Shit, last night I was like, Oh, I sen Cleveland. She doesn't really follow any it's sports, but I'm watching it because, you know, like I hate stealers and the browns have them in the playoffs in eighteen years. I have bunch of browns friends. I'm Bangles Fan, but I'm like fuck it when a team has been an eighteen years, like right, and fuck the steelers, fuck the steelers. So I'm watching it just just to be first play of the game. Your first play hiked over his head, touchdowns, like what the fuck? And then the next drive interceptions, like Jesus Christ in his fourteen. Nothing. Then it's twenty one, nothing, it's twenty eight, nothing. I was like in the first quarter. Yeah, I'm like, what the fuck is going on? And most is like I just don't understand why that's counted as seven points, just to one and two. I'm like, I make it's a valid point. I get what you're saying. I don't know why they do seven. I don't know, I don't know, I don't care. That's how it is. Is it was so fucking rand, but I'm like, I can't believe I'm seeing this right now. I went to bed at halftimes. I'd be up super early, but I got a little nail body at the end. There was a pure and I was kind of like Brown, you're browned it up, browns, but they'll pull it out, man. I'm happy. I'm happy they want. I'm at my I'm happy they want. I told my best friends, like a huge browns fan, because like, I just think we're going to lose. I'm like, because you know, their head coaches out. We're talking, I think actually Tuesday about it. Are One. Two S are ones. I can remember too. Yeah, it was ones day before the everything right. I was like, I don't I was like, honestly, the Pittsburg steelers haven't played a good half of football, one good half of football in six games. You guys are going to win this game. Trust me on this. And then when I was like twenty eight, nothing was like Jesus Christ, and I think I'd be this fucking bad. But also, browns, where's this been? Holy Shit, I think that Lu was every game. I think it. The quote was like this is like eighteen years and just frustration built into one game. Fuck when you haven't gotten late in eighteen years and it's finally you get to get that one off. Motherfucker, I'm gonna come all over you. That shows wild I was happy. Yeah, it's not my team there, my division, my team's division, but I was really happy. I'm not a cubs fan, but like when the cubs finally had theirs, it was go, go cubs. That's all. I fucking hate the cubs, actually, but I know a bunch of cubs fans and I people, people have lived a life and died like all you could have lived a hundred years and died and never seen and when they go on, I was like, I was happy for them. Yeah, I don't care if you're in my division. Baseball, like I was like, all right, like what? I prefer the Indians...

...to win, but yeah, go cubs, it's just is what. It was. One of those things that like you have to lose somebody have happened, like rightness, except for Houston. Fuck Houston, fuck fuck the Astros. By its Sunday. I hope they never win another pennant. Yeah, that they should take away. There this I still think they should take away that. That fucking I know they should and I just theory and I got fucking ripped on it. I think covid actually saved the Astros. Yeah, because the ashers are going to get hit hard all year, like they were gonna. My thing was they're not going to take the tide away. So I thought my head, like what's a crazy fucking thing? Any team could do. Crazy team, anything could do them all. Right, here's what they do, no matter what. From the very beginning. Hit every single of their batters. Be just beat them every now, every single one. And your guys kicked out. So be it. Guys could maybe they go a hundred, sixty two and no, MMM, but they haven't played a fucking game the entire year. Yeah, fuck them. So, and you're only in the like. We won't stop hitting them. We will stop hitting them when you get rid of their title. Yeah, but and simple. They should have done that, and that covid helped them out so much. Yeah, because they were, because they had a bulls on on their fucking back from every team in the MLB. Just fucking baseball, man, I fucking bullshit. I'm still pissed. Well, if I was a dodger fan of being even more of it, because dodgers. Oh yeah, that year they lost to them. But then the Boston red sox kind of got hit with the same scandal a little bit, but not as a detailed back with the socks Boston. Boston bla like the next year after that. But they really couldn't. They were like they thought they were using and one of the bench coaches end up being that was on the Houston Astros. What what it was out sches Alex Cora and up being the manager for Boston that year. Nay, one and share. Some cheating going on there too. They didn't have really any detailed information, but bossing got hit. was some shit for it, but it wasn't. There wasn't a whole bang on trash cans. Now, Dude, fucking Morse Code. Wever the fuck they were doing. Nobody noticed that. Really. All of a sudden they got the battles in. The coach goes and I shit, fucking blue man group Shit and it's he listened to the videos close you can fucking hear it. There's a one really good video picture like within two pitches he's like he calls the fucking catcher out. He's like, if you read lips correctly, he's like they know what I'm throwing? Yeah, because he caught onto the bang of the trash, did he? Yeah, he was like wait a second, and the second time happened and the third time like what was called. They saw it, like it was literally what was called. And he was like he called, he called time. I was just Shat there and tell the batter called time and he was like told. The guy's like they know what I'm throwing. Oh Shit, yeah, but they don't, like they couldn't figure it out. Like baseball's like a very unwritten there's a lot of cheating. It goes on and base all this so much shooting because the rules date back to the fucking eighteen hundred. It's one of the sports that just hasn't been updated since its inception. Well, you can't have any foreign substance on the ball. As a picture, one of the this is came out the angels fired a guy last year or year before that was known to doctor have this makes some type of substance. I can really doctor up a ball. I don't know if it's undetechable or what, but like for like thirty years people have been reaching out to this guy get the substance stop. But he named like he named to Houston players that we're doing it. No Shit, got it from him. Yeah, and I just a bunch of other pitchers. Holy Shitus the more like if you put like vastly in or whatever, it causes a spin ray of the ball. Yeah, when he got higher spin rate, it can move more right, up, down left. It doesn't like,...

...not really. You don't really move up. It's like that's impossible. But left, right, whatever. And he named like Garrett Cole, Justin Verland, or I can't remember els your name, but those, those, those two played on on Houston one year, not the other one in the world series. But named like all these other great pitchers that he gave shit to. But mean it's like unknown. I've never heard that in my life. Holy Shit. Pay All the Dr Balls like crazy, like they try really hard, like there's a ball. You can watch videos on it, and Shit like Michael Paniada got hit like two years ago. Really, yeah, and then hit's even more fucked up as like. So you'll pitch for a team and they know you do it and then you'll pitch against sound like the next year and then this I can't remember. I think it was like a ball to Morn it in an ace game and then they called him like check his stuff those and they got the stuff I did do was fucking Piss Oh my God, this is fucking Bush League. Fuck you, because I knew he was doing it because there's on their team the year before. Oh my God, think. Then it's like kind of like one of those like you don't really say it, yeah, don't talk about it. Yeah, fuck did. It's being a fucking sports did you hear about? So? Apparently they were shown an NFL game on Nickelodeon and Chop, yes, and the guy drop the f the guy drop the F bomb. I got picked up by the refs. Mike, yeah, what the fuck? Fuck that. First of all, who's dumb fucking idea was it to show an NFL game on Nickelodeon last night, trying to appeal the kids? Whatever? I watched some of the cool highlights of it. was kind of cool, but like they give it like didn't they make the graphics all kind of like cartoon and Shit or something? I think like that's the line. was like green slime and stuff, like they're comparing like Adam Chimera and like a drew brees to like Spongebob and fucking Patrick. It was like some what was that? But, but, but was the halftime show, the spongebob man from that one fucking episode of the man hilarious. For it was fucking great because that's what that's what they thought they were going to do for the Super Bowl last year, because because the guy who created spongebob died last year and they were they kept saying, Oh, yeah, spongeb're going, they're gonna do the spongebob thing for that. Everybody was like fuck yeah, and they didn't do it. It was spongebob introduced. fucking what was it was? It was it timber Laker, who came here last year? No, do, was Jlo and Shakira and he introduced them and I was so fucking salty. So with the stane at an, not Stanley Cup, but one of the hot one of the hockey games that next that next week, they actually showed the full fucking video during during the break. That's so funny. But yeah, like, yeah, that should have been been the fucking you're gonna do football on on Nickelodeon. Come on, give the people what they want. Chop that fucking after went out of bounce. What the fuck? It was so fucking so many kids learned a new word. Last night. Af they're playing a games live. That happened with when, during not not the most recent RNC, but the one where trump got nominated, and I remember Jon Stewart popped up on on cold bear show and Oh yeah, and he goes like I see your bullshit and they had to cut it and the hall Sud Colbert Gets Up, whispers in his ear and Stewart Goes, oh, we're live. I fell down a I found a playlist on Youtube. It was like best of Jon Stewart. It was like three hundred and fifty videos of eclips of him on the the only show, and it's been so long since I'd seen him. Fuck I forgot how funny he was. So funny. Oh my God, it's I felt a little weird. I was like, you see me talking about all these politicians and I don't remember. It's the same fucking people. He's still talking about McConnell and Graham and cruise and, oh my embassis. Like I forgot how fucking funny he was. He was it...

...was good at it and he had a point you always wanted to make. Yeah, and he was just good. Like one of my favorite speeches ever is him at the nine hundred and eleven thing over a couple of years ago, was it? I think it was last year, to where he was like these people need is fun and he chew and each you. Yeah, because the the room was like fucking empty. Yeah, Oh, yeah, I love that. He ripped them so hard because he did a show, you know, his first show back after eleven. I mean because he talks about how, like he used to wake up and like hit the window in his bedroom face the twin hours. He's like now it's nothing. And Yeah, he's always been such a huge backer for that, for the N and eleven support fund, and because he's a New Yorker. Yeah, he's a New Yorker and but he was also fast, like he's I'd see him like on Fox News talking to Chris Wallace and Chris Wallas to come after him and he just had his response as ready to go. The funny man. Yeah, funny they wouldn't. They would give him shit like you're on a you're good, you're giving us crap about what we show. Your on a network that shows n one one. He's like, yeah, that's a comedy channel, not a news channel. Yeah, it's like it's again. You keep bringing up the channel I'm on. I'm aware. We're not trying to we're not pretending to be news. You are fucking so good. Oh my God, I wonder how much he wouldn't that. I don't think he'd ever go back to the daily show, but God, I wish. Part of me wishes you would. Oh, what's his face? Is Good or no, is fine. I've never had a problem whichever. No, I don't like him as much as as as John, I think. I think Trevor Noah isn't as funny. I think he's clever, but I'll think it as funny as stand ups funny. Yeah, but yeah, he's fine. I've actually enjoyed him more doing stuff at home than I did on the actual show. Really, yeah, Samon Watch. I've really watched a lot. I've most of stuff I've actually watched has been him on the show, not at home. Okay, so I don't know. I just I just need it to be February so that last week time I can come back, because I know John Oliver is sitting at home right now just twitch and want to talk about this shit. What? Oh my God, he said ten years. Gonna have ten years worth the material and I have never liked some antha be I've tried ever watch any of her stuff. I like there when she was on the daily show, but I know her leaving was kind of there's a bunch of drama there because I guess are originally I guess they thought that she was going to get the daily show, not Trevor Noah, because then when she didn't get it, she retired halfway through the final season and then they gave her and then they gave her her own show. But you either she had either her writing was better or she had better writers when she was at the daily show, because if she's writing her own stuff or the show she's got, it's not good. HMM, it's just not good. It's it's just it's like it's try, it's trying too hard to be Jon Stewart Gotch is. This is not great shit. You kind of did you see where they're trying to get wonder woman nominated for best picture and I I haven't watched it, so I can't say if it's good or bad. But everybody's like okay, but like it's like if they gets nominate, it doesn't deserve it though. Okay, so I watched it and, as a guy who's kind of a DC chill, it wasn't that great. HMM. It wasn't awful, but I do find the more I talked about it, the more I find I don't like about it. There were some really good stuff in there. It was it was campus fuck. It was about thirty minutes too long. It just it wasn't it wasn't as good as the first one, and like I mean by a lot, I don't mean like I was as good as the first, but it was still only it wasn't even close to the first one. HMM. All the acting was like Chris Kristen wigg was the one that I was kind of worried about and she was great. She kicked ass. I feel like most comedic actors are really good actors in general. Oh...

Yeah, like they can act their ass off, but you have to they get that type cast for like a while, like Adam Sandler and punch trunk love is really so good, really fucking fucking Um was it? UNCUT GEMS is fucking amazing. Okay, and I said this. I said this last or the fact that he wasn't nominated for a fucking Oscar, for that is insane. Yeah, because, like, my wife does not watch movies with me that I like period, but she's like it gave her anxiety watching him the entire time. Oh Yeah, that movie was was was like being on cocaine. Yeah, Oh my God. I think he did an interview and they were like were you shocked? You weren't nominated. He's like no, they he's like, they will never nominate me for anything. He's like, I'm Adam Sandler, and it's like they're never gonna he's like, it doesn't matter how good I am, they're never going to nominate is. That was so fucking he was so fucking good in that movie. Movie was you again, should have been fucking nominated, and shame on them for not, because, well, I remember when I saw that trailer I was just like I need to see this fucking it's so good. Hole's feel. All comedic actors are really good actors as long as but they know they don't get people with. They overlook for parts of the people don't look at it because they're like Oh, this personals ones. So now or this person was just like Jonah Hill, it's all great, shit good, so Seth Rogan, so throw Oh yeah, well, it's it's because all, because all the all the funny people want to the same acting schools as the big as like the DiCaprio's. The difference is you can't fake being funny. Yeah, you can't. That's and so that's why, that's why they get roped into that so often. But like, yeah, they're still good actors. The fact that they're funny is what is part of what, because you have to be really good to be that funny. Yep, that's what, because you'll see serious actors try to do comedy and it's not fucking good. HMM. Part of it's the script, a part of it's also like if you can't, if you can't sell those lines, you know, you don't have it. You don't have it. But so that's yeah, that's why whenever you see, you know when Jim Carrey did the majestic, you know the movie. The movie itself is fine, but he's really good. It's a really serious role. M Even number twenty three, which is a weird doll. That fucking fun get weird maybe, but he's really good as this complete unhinged and whack job, which you know, is a little bit like art imitating life. But yeah, I think I like Ju see funny people. Funny people is good, but I'll funny people is also comedy, drama. It is. It's a it's it's a drama about comedy, and Sandler is goot in that. Yeah, well, so so s Rogan. Yeah, Aubrey Plaza was in that one, Eric Banna, Eric, and the fucking Pedro Pascal, as he's is in it doing his own jokes, which is fin mean, they were all doing their own bits. It's fine, but that was before anybody knew the fuck is he's on. Sorry. Was Yeah, because I had seen him, because he's from my he's from my area in South Carolina, and I had seen him do the cold stone bit, like Oh, really, fucking bars. Yeah, it's was still funny, but he was one of the ones like you knew he was going to be a make something big star. Yeah, he just did. Was An energy about him. But well, look, you look at like a fucking lift GAW. Yeah, you think a lift guy, you think, you immediately think like big, dramatic, but then you remember he did third rock from the fucking Sun. He is so fuck fuck and I you know, I I still watch the original Shrek and he's so good as Lord Far Quad. Oh my God, yeah, it's yeah, well, Jamie Fox, for example, oh, totally shit. Yeah, well, he got cast as Ray. Everybody was like, what the Fuck, kills it? When's The fucking Oscar? Well, Keaton, Keaton was a comic. Yeah, it was casts, but you know, they originally wanted for Batman was Bill Murray. What Tim Burton's original pick for for that Batman was bill fucking Murray out and so weird. Oh my God, the kind of look like to like, especially in that...

...time. Yeah, they both had that weird curly hair thing going on. You know, Bill Murray was in. was in. He I mean don't Murray was the hottest thing in Hollywood at that point. People women wanted to have his children because they loved them so much back then. But Keaton was, you know, he was Mr Mom all he had done and which I found a video of him doing stand up pre Batman. Is it good? It's not bad. It rings of it, rings of he was still new, but also also it was like eighty five and stand up. Back then was just totally different. Yeah, thing is, nothing was really hacky. Yeah, now would be hacky to do that exactly. It's yeah, back then it was original and new and now it's like a fucking s man, fucking eight fucking s it's a but yeah, he was. But you know, look at him now. I mean people are still talking about his Batman like he supposed to be like in the new Batman movie, or he's gonna be in the flash as as old Bruce Wayne, and they're talking about because it's supposed to be a time travel of movie, and they're talking about doing a they're finally talking about doing a Batman beyond movie with him as old man Bruce Wayne, which if that happens I will not like. I will just orgasm for days because that's to bad me. Beyond was the shit, I really I never really got into it. It's blade runner meets Batman and it's the fuck. It's so cool. Everybody likes it. It's it will because they're they were going to do a movie four years ago and then they got shelved and then they replace that with Batman begins, which you know the rest of his history on that. Yeah, so good. Somebody died. Yeah, yeah, but, yeah, I mean he Keaton did that Birdman movie, which one the fucking Oscar. He was great, and spider man, I mean he's he's had a quite quite a resurgence. Guess what we're trying to tell you, guys, is Um is cast more comedians and shit. Do Comedy, because then you'll make it as a yeah, if you want to be a serious actor, do comedy. It's really mean. It's not really seriously, it's really you can't fake. Go. Go and open MIC. You can't fake being funny. They can. It's hard. It's hard. Shit Fuck. Even Stewart in that interview with Chris Wallace, he told Chris Wallas. He's like, what I do was a lot harder than what you do. Yeah, you told him. He's like, you just talked about what happened. I have talked about it and be fun on it. It's so fucking hard to do. That's the other night I opened up with like I can't when I like I don't care, like I's say two thousand and twenty ones are even crazy, like I don't care about your political affiliation, left or right. Yeah, what happened the other day was ridiculous. Yeah, why in the world would netflix get rid of the office? No, but fucking seriously, what the fuck? That's how I opened. I was part way through going back and rewatching that Shit, you Cox Suckers. I that's how I like. It's so hard to fucking that's fucking funny. That's fucking funny. Holy Shit, I'll never tell that again. Tell it. What's because they're right. Yeah, because, because once you get into June it's not going to be funny anymore. Well, and I mean if you ever have like, you could always do it near towards other shit, like something big happens and Netflix, like you know what I mean, like Netflix got right of the office. It's relatable, though, because people were pissed there. Like what if I'm still watching it it like twelve, like eleven fifty nine pm, and it doesn't miss going to turn off in the middle of the episode? I wonder if that happened. If she don't know how that works, it probably would have started buffering. You log out, go back in and it's fucking gone. That's on peak. Peacock is like five dollars a month. Fuck that. Somebody streaming service is now discoveries dropping one? Yeah, discovery starvery plus. Yeah, I'M NOT gonna lie,...

I'm kind of interested because it's got some cool shit on there. Yeah, I think because it's got it's got discovery, it's got it's got the history channel, it's got food network, it's got, it's got a lot of it's one of those ones like if they keep it under ten bucks and it's also like five buers. Yeah, maybe because I'm happy with I'm happy. I'm still happy with HBO, mostly because I mostly got that so I can watch last week tonight. But like that's how I watched wonder woman. And now much is that a month? HBO? Get Hbo Max. Are Go eight bucks on forgetting now. So we have Amazon, Hulu and Netflix right now, and Disney plus. With Disney plus, like I think it's it's a fifteen a month. I do want to get rid of Hulu, though. It's fifty. It's fifteen a month for HBO Max, but right now there's not a whole. It's mostly nostalic you, but there's about to be so much shit on there because they're moving like all the DC stuff going there. Yeah, Warner Brothers is dropping their entire two thousand and twenty one slate of movies on there and South Park going there. South Park's on there, and the Fuck Im essential lose that because they sold the distribution rights to Hulu and then I think Hulu sold them off the HBO. Okay, is HBO Maxim by Warner Brothers, okay, but they've also got adult swim which you know, if you want to go back and rewatch like metalocalypse, which I did, still fucking funny. Super Jail, super jail squidbillies, if you like to hate yourself that fucking show so much. But the what? The fucked up one is sesame street, because it took sesame street off PBS and now it's an HBO family show. We just so fucked up because the whole point as sesame street was were it to be accessible for kids and now if you want your kids to watch this met you have that HBO. That's weird, that's that's fucked up to me. It's the whole point was. The whole point of that show was for the poor inner city kids who couldn't afford cable. Now you have to have not just cable but cable plus premiums. That's crazy. Yeah, that makes you want to HBO. So I want my wife to watch good billies and an episode of Super Jail and it's like what are you so what? You used to watch this? Yeah, I haven't dealt too far into a part of me wonders if they have old space ghost coast to coast on. Shit Space Ghost coast to Coas, because I would. If it does, I'm going to lose my shit. That was so good. I wish they'd bring that back. I do too, I really fucking do too. Well, they one of the guys who worked on it died a couple of years ago. So well, you were here to John Schneppe. Name sounds from miliar. So he was. He was the he was the main he. So everyone thinks of Brendan Small and I think of Metalocalypse, but John Schneppe was kind of the the creative force behind it, like he did all the art for it. He did a documentary a couple of years ago called the death of Superman libs, which was this documentary about the Nick Cage Superman movie that never got made. Yeah, it was, was about to start shooting and then got fucking canned. He did this thing called the ABC's of death's kind of had his hands in a lot of shit, HMM, in like nerd culture, and he was one of the ones who were who was behind space ghost, coast to coast. Why did Nick Cage Movie Get canceled? So it was. It was tim it was going to be a Tim Burton directed, Nicholas Cage starred movie. And basically what happened was warner brothers had three huge flops back to back, Batman and Robin Wild, Wild West, and I forget the third movie, and it basically the studio lost a Shitload of money and that was already look at it being one of the most expensive movies ever. So they pulled the plug on it. It been bad. I don't know, man really, if you want, first of all, the documentary is amazing because he liked goes and talks to like because like Kevin Smith wrote it. Wrote wrote a version of the script and he talked to Tim Burton. Other pretty does a good talk with Nick Cage. He gets production stills and you know in talk he had that long haired any for yeah, the long hair, and I can't well,...

...the thing is that the picture that everybody always sees was an early costume test. That wasn't the final costume, but nick cage is like the world's biggest superman fan, HMM, and they have this video of him doing that costume test, talking to tim like working through the script with him and like he's so into it and talking about ideas he has, and you hear the ideas they have for the moving your kind of like, Holy Shit, this sounds really good. He probably would have killed it. That's it's kind know he was a superman fan. He's his son's name. He named his son CAL l which is fucking weird. Don't get don't do that. Don't be Goyneth Paltrow, but you know it. Don't be Qui me my kid apple. But yeah, he's a huge supermince bits. So hearing the hearing them and seeing that, like the production stills and all that, because they were going to basically do a version of the death of Superman, but it was one of those things where it was just kind of like this sounds like would either be amazing or a huge fucking train wreck. That's a superman would have been very interesting. Yeah, because they tried to do it and it didn't really work out too well and fucking BBSs, but it was okay with those fine. I like that movie more than most people, but I think it's better than okay. It's the second best DC film in my opinion. I haven't watch him all either. Don't get me wrong. You wash his am now, you would fucking love Shazam. So I liked. I liked man of steel. Yeah, steal was great. Fact we never got a second man of steels insane. I haven't want to watch his am. I just never got Zachary Levi is so fucking good in the show. He's funny as Shit. He's another one of those guys like he's really fighting, but when he gets serious he's really good. That's just do sequel of that too. Yeah, the working on right now. I just finished watching marvelous missus maisal. I didn't realize he was in it and he's fucking funny as Shit. Is a yeah, it's a good show to watch if you're doing stand up because it's because it's really relatable, even though set in the fucking s. But like the mistake she makes, you kind of like, Oh shit, I did that, I did that once. Fuck, get out comedy mistakes. Yeah, can't wait for county get back up and running. Yeah, our Sunday still not happening. Yes, Sunday is every other week. Will Happen? Yeah, every other week. I've been going good. I mean the most I'll do is fifty in the audience because it played play seats like I think like one hundred and fifty or something like that normally. Yeah, something like the so they only see like that. They only go up like fifty the maybe push at the six see if they just still open it up the back. Or now, though, well, take that back yet, not the very, very very back. Now I really sits up there, like yeah, the back tables. Yeah, like people were like right before you up the stairs. Okay, if it's really busy. I mean comedies weird now, like I haven't been in front of a fucking full audience and the most I've performed in front of was like fifty people. Yeah, and so I was like like a group, like a hundred people, like what, like you forget like how much laughter feel, like what normal laughter is like. We had twenty five people the other night at the show when I hosted, and I was like like Friday show, like there's like eleven. They were a great eleven, fantastic eleven people, and for Saturdays, like twenty five people. But like you like his this like eleven to twenty five, like it's a big jump in like fucking like people can only laugh so loud compared to twenty five laughing so loud. I'm like, I just like I was thinking in my head like ass wars. I was like, man, if there's like a hundred people, everybody laughs, like what's that going to sound like? Can't even remember now I can't, like I it's blows w mind, like I don't remember. Like I don't remember what it sounds like. It's so fucking weird. Yeah, I get it, man, like that's going to be me the next time I go to a movie theater for the first time. Yeah, because I guess I love going to movie theater, but it's, you know, we're got blowing it. Next time...

I get to go up and there's a full fucking room, it's going to be I haven't done it and so fucking long. I'm going to go up to five people. It's going to feel like the biggest crowd I've ever been in front of my eye. Want Twenty Five. I was like Holy Fuck, like I've done fifty, like because of covid and everything, but like twenty five I was like it was just so weird. I don't know, it's just so well, the vaccine, you know, they're thinking. They're thinking like April may for regular people start rolling it out. Gets warm enough, you guys probably start doing outdoor shows again. Oh yeah, it's probably gonna Happen for sure, because those just seemed like they're just fun. Yeah, and to an extent, I mean they're fun enough. Like when you do an outdoor show you got to realize like you got to look for at people's mouths, because laughter get us, doesn't bounce off anything, it just gets lost. Whitney Cummings has been doing like outdoor shows and she's been posting videos of and like on Tick Tock and like you can tell it's like she's killing it, but it doesn't sound like he's killing now. It's like just like yeah, yeah, I'm very the first time I to somebody outdoor show was at a brew hot down since that in the first thing I told me was like it's there that want to be far though, like you're doing on the tent outside of him, like you're under your the stage is under tent. Everybody else is like outside the ten, like the tiny ten, and the first thing I told me was look at their mouths. You're not going to hear them laugh. You have to look at their mouths. Did it first time. I thought I bombed right and there is like area county, like I was fucking great, and I was like what fuck you talking about? It's horrible, like people, I love. You stuff a ball, like I realized that you laugh at it. We were like second time, second time, one up like that. I looked at their fucking yeah, mouse. I was like, okay, that's why I got look, you can really can't. It just gets lost. The only people you can hear are literally the three people up from like right right in front of you. Fuck, I do not miss do an outcore shows. Yeah, I did. I did a bunch of them in college. They're the fucking worst. Yeah, fun, but for covid reasons that had happened. I was going through his unpacking a box, going through some of my old shit and I found flyers from from the tour I did in college. Hit back before I going to do Photoshop. I made the whole thing a fucking Microsoft word it looks like a fucking ten year old mate at like school project, but it was like it's all we had. We had no fucking money to make like professional flyers, so I was just using up my fucking ink cartridges, taking them to sticking them to the college and using up my print quoted a print copies of these fucking things. Oh how we've all developed. Oh my God, that was, you know, virals. Social Media Marketing wasn't really a thing at that point when I it was two thousand and eight. You know, the first iphone had just come out, but people weren't, you know, really using twitter and facebook for Shit, as where you went to post pictures of your cat and that was the end of it. You know, now you argue to death. How you you know, you fight with people you've never met, call them a cock and told them to go shove a pine apple up their ass. That's pretty much the Internet. Yeah, pretty much now is fuck like, I've been trying to do fucking that type of Shit, like like photo editing and stuff. I'm still suck that so bad. Tried do memes on the fly sometimes. Yeah, I got an APP. I got kind of like I'm talking about, like like I did. Y'All want to see a dead body? Yeah, it was like that picture. It U. Underneath there's like the steelers logo. Me Like ten minutes like crop out bangle, I mean browns players faces and put them on the fucking well. Yeah, I was like, I got just fast for some else does. Yeah, that and it would be there. I have wasted many at many an hour at work trying to get my memes just fucking right on the APP. But once I get them done, I'm like yeah, God Damn Right. Somebody else probably beat me through this shit, but it's fine, fuck them, fuck them, fucking twitter. I don't know. Twitter's just it's just twitters and Piss me off lately. Yeah, yeah,...

...just it. What aritates me about twitter is like you'll tell a joke. You like, okay, that's a good your type one in and it gets barley anything, but like chick tits tells it. Yeah, almost exact same thing, verbatim. Yeah, no, thousands of shares and likes. The fucking Choirman. It's like this. I'm on, Tick Tock. Trust me, you were preaching to the fucking choir. I'm going post a plenty of shit where I'm going, that's fucking funny, and no one's given this time, but chicken a bikini takes a sip of a fucking Latte. Its fucking like that Shit. If I like this, she'll fuck me. Yeah, it's so stupid, thirsty ASS motherfucker. I know it's Christ I know it's completely under bullshit, but see, what I do appreciate those is the girls on tick tock who know that's what the guys are doing and they just kind of fucking play into it to the point where it's actually fucking funny. There's one she's this girl, she's in college. She is naturally quite gifted, like like anime gifted, like Holy Shit, and she's aware of it. So she gets comments of all type of guys telling like do you fucking jump rope in a video? She's like, Oh, okay, so she jump rose, but she faces away from the fucking camera. That's that's funny. So yeah, she does Shit Lights. It's like, okay, you get it, because she's still doing it in a fucking bikini. She's not facing the fucking camera. I got a fuck piece. I just blows my mind. Like it blows my mind. I don't know. It's irritating to me sometimes. Yeah, because I see he's like fucking things on twitter. I'm like, how do you have? Like I'm reading like your tweets, like I know what's a funny tweet. Yeah, these are not funny. You right, thousand of them a day him, like these are not like some of these are. Like how's it had like twenty five, like hundred light I guess it's not funny. Yeah, what the fuck? I've said Funnier and Smarter Shit to to an audience of nobody. My tits were bigger. I don't know. I really put this tweet would be this too, would get more, more likes if ID tits. I put that. I was waiting a fucking smack for it. I don't give a fuck. Is it is true, like the sweet, we get more of Leech tweets and likes if I had tits. I've always wanted to like do an experiment with like online dating profiles. Retake, you know, two guys and two girls and you write the exact same like bio for the girls profile in the guy's profile, but I have two profiles for for the girl and the guy, and then you have regular pictures and then like fucking smoking hot pictures and then for the guy, like regular pictures, and then let's a fucking dude model about the same fucking information and see which what'll see what happens. Oh, I kind of did that with myself. Not, you can't, fishing, motherfucker. No, it wasn't like I use my same everything, but what I did was I changed how much money I made. Oh, smart, yeah, I change. I bumped it up. I can actually like twenty five grand and like I'd same exact message to somebody. Right, okay, so some mess same exact message everything. They wouldn't do it. It's I was like, I wonder, Havel, have I changed this? It's I weigh like a week, same exact message. I just bumped up my pay a little bit. Message back and I oh, wow, are you about it? I was like, Oh, the reason why you talk to me because I make a hundred, okay, and they were like well, that's not why. I'm like, I'm done talking to get there. Oh Wow, there you go. And then one of them, HMM, it's for me and my wife met. One of them ran into me at was it net peppers? Oh, that was it, that peppers. Yeah, and I started talking man stuff and like I was like she's like why are you talking about like like your Golddigger, like I don't fucking Oh shit, I found I cracked your code, Bitch, like I always remember that. I did that to so many people. That's fucking funny. It doesn't means fucking like. I'll make make decent money, but, like you want, a person makes a hundred K year, right. That's the only reason why you're talking...

...to me. I did notice that when I when I was still doing it, when I put that I owned a house, it helped a little bit. Really. Yeah, that. Yeah, I could see how that would work too, because they think, is it? Because because there's there is this huge misconception that own a how she got to be fucking loaded? I'll tell you right now, in two thousand and twenty one, it is never been fucking easier in the world to own a house. Interest rates are ridiculously low. It's just like it's like getting a car, you know, except this, except this loan actually gives you value. Yep, but there is a misconception that if you own a house, oh well, you must be fucking loaded. It's like no, I make thirty FIVEZERO dollars a year. Yeah, I just know how to stretch my money. It blows my mind how, just a little bit something like that will chance. Poe's spect them on you, sere. Now somebody wants somebody to tell me what makes you look. You have like your responsible. It's like fucking responsible. Trust me. Buying House probably wasn't the most responsible thing I could have done, and but a long scheme of things is long term by the time, I definitely could not afford it. No, trust me, I was that was strung. I'm doing okay now. I always O in the asception that was so hard to buy a house. Now me too, and I'm moving. We got ours. Were like what it took? It took our buddy kyle steel like walk me through it, like, dude, it's actually really fucking easy now. And Yeah, well, what part of the process was? I was looking at apartments and for like six hundred bucks a month I was getting shitholes. I'm almost like look at Condos, so that the condos and I was like, okay, but if I want to get a fucking mortgage, when as it's gonna fucking house, and she was like what's that? Kind of look. Like I talked to kyle and I was like, Holy Shit, this might actually be feasible. Yep, Hey, feasible. Ours is on a whim. We got our houses is literally on a whim, like we were just looking the look. It was just looking just like because we're we told ourselves is going to like a year and a half, year, year and a half or what that? Yeah, actually got house. So we're looking to look and there's a house down the straight from we lived. There's like Fiftyzero. Like okay, like, what the fuck's this? So we called and so I mess called it back and the guy was like listen, like the house is as is. Like no, you can't go and it got to buy it as is type thing, like you don't come on down the office and like within like three weeks looking, we end up having house. Like what we are like what? Like? Yeah, it was such a quick process. It felt like at the time was taken forever, but then like what, I look back on it, I wasn't looking more than a month. Yeah, I we stopped for a couple days because I got married. The weird thing is if the the ironic part, but everything is. If it wasn't for Covid, we probably want to got a house because we did not go on a honeymoon. Oh yeah, see, I thought about that too. Like I had so many travel plans and shit for last year in vacations I was going to take. If I had taken those, I wouldn't had the money. Yeah, it's crazy. I thought about that and I was I don't have it. Would never fucking yeah, that's fucked. That's fucking wild. Thanks, covid. Yeah, that's the only gets I get think of a covid. What's fuck. What's fucked up that I've realized in a few months I've lived here is just how close to each other all the houses that looked at our over is, the house I almost got is literally the next street over from this one, and every tell me that one time. And then there's two that I passed going to work that I did are just like two streets off the road it take to go to work. Like, Holy Shit, ours really weren't close then. Only we worked at like is where we looked at a couple hous and cattering with their own exact opposite ends of cattering. So uttering. Yeah, fucking countering, man, those houses are just going up oh yeah, our sounds like two hundred thousand. Our property value is already got up on the well, the Zestimate, which means absolutely nothing. Yeah, sorry, episos, we bought it. Got To be careful with kettering because you might think you're looking in kettering, but turns out track to looking at Oakwood. Yeah, got, that'll fuck you. Yeah.
