Oh Shit, Harley emery said, let me show youhow this is supposed to go, and once he did, that was it. That was it. Kubrick basically rewrote the entire first couple of scenes andput our Li emory in the movie and started his whole career, because afterthat it was Mississippi burning. Yep, a couple other movies he did andyeah, he was off to the racist and yeah, some weird bit partin saving Silverman really be weird where he plays the Gay Jim Teacher.

That's true. What.So we got? We Got Jesse nut in the room with us today.Yeah, Jesse Nut, not to be confused with this porn porno named Jessenut. Jesse BUSTON. Jesse is a like bust of rhymes, a bustedbusts. Yeah, Jesse's here. He's hanging out because he got having seenhim in forever, for fucking ever, and I saw him the other day. You saw me other than you.

I never see anybody else in thecomedy scene anymore. So they're still seen, sorry, whatever's left of it,and seen and seeing. Yeah, and we're talking to somebody because theywere talking about like how funny about might be closed, and they're like what'sthat going to do to the local comedy see, and how was like nothing, know. Well, never even want there anything. Now, what arethey going to do? Not Book us? Yeah, now they're the rumor isthey're going to reopen. Oh Really? Yeah, I guess we'll see what, you know, happens after that? Yeah, I mean I hope itreopens. Yeah, well, now that Chappelle's opening his club here bythe end of this year, I think. Yeah, but unless he lowers themticket prices, I just don't think what the fuck is going to bethat much competition if you're charging a hundred and fifty plus a fucking ticket?Yeah, METALLICA doesn't charge those kinds of ticket prices. He just knows whatyou can get her way with. Oh Yeah, power me, he knowsI'll sell it. So it doesn't want absolutely set. All the dates aresold out. Yeah, all the all the yellow springs dates are sold out. So they're also now, because it because when when I saw Ray Jacksonposted, they were like two hundred something bucks, bullshit. So I wantto go look at it. They were all all sold out. Now peopleare going to people are going to fly here from all over the country toget their brag points. Okay, and I was in yellow spraggs and Isaw Dave and Blair, but blare but bear, well, good for you. Yeah, you know, if you got that kind of money to burn, good. That's why, when I heard he was opening a club.My first reaction was, okay, cool, is this is going to be anotherclub that locals can't perform at, pretty much as you already got oneof those, we don't need to. Yeah, I'd be fair. YellowSprings is like forty, thirty minutes away. Still, I mean sure locos eventuallywould be able to form there. That's adorable. That's not I'm talkinglike five, ten years down the road when they're not locals anymore and then, yeah, I don't know what'll happen the places. You got to getone person in there and when one person shows they can do something, thanat that point, because what's going to happen is he'll hire, they'll hiresomebody that wants to be a comic, and that's how I'll start. Ithink that you got way, way long down the road. I don't thinkthat's that plays can charge that much, though, like I get the wholeyellow springs like outdoor th off or whatever, but, like, can you imaginehaving that club like two hundred dollars a ticket? Like a club fortwo hundred? It's a sure. I mean if they know, if theyknow chapels, they're okay. Here's something probably going to want to put himselfon every fucking Shit. Right, if you knew it, okay, ifyou're a real legit comedy fan and you know Dave Chappelle's going to host,Chris Rock is the opening act, that's true. You're going to see TiffanyHatish next, and closing the show is going to be Eddie Murphy practicing forhis HBO special. Yeah, it's worth two hundred fucking bucks now, Imean and anybody he's bought, he's brought. It's worth the money. Yeah,absolutely worth the money, because who what you're getting. But it's likeone of this thing. I don't have a problem pay him like a hundredfifty bucks to go like an Allstar show. It's on. It's a hundred fiftybucks for a person. I have to do it basically relative to apercentage of my income. Yeah, so when I look at it like that, Dave, all I can give you is about a buck. Seventy five. No, no, I. Yeah, yeah, I don't know. It'sI mean, obviously I'm open to being proven wrong, but the thingisn't that because they can't sell out every weekend now all years, I thinkI said, it only seems like a hundred and fifty people because it's anold it's a one like an old firehouse that they're cutting or something like that. I think is that you couldn't run that all year. What I mean, there's no way you could run that and expect to. I could beselled out every single show. Yeah, that's the way I'm looking at it. Is like maybe it's like a seasonal type thing. Made me look ifif it, like Dave said, on...

San Nol I think that was someof the truest part of his monolog ones. And Hell is for him he wastrying to do something not just for his comedy friends, was trying todo something for the town that he loves, trying to bring some money in therein the middle of a pandemic which is all but all but crushed them. Yeah, you know. So I think that's still I hope that stillhis motivation because I mean seriously, you got to figure most of the peoplethat he's going to have at his club could make more money in about sixmonths going anywhere else. HMM. Yeah, because, yeah, it least forthe next ninety days they might not get booked, but by Christmas they'reall going to be booked. Everyone, Chris Rod, tiffany had, they'reall Dave's going to be booked. I just hope it's not just a listers, like it doesn't has to be necessarily be locals, but like, letme see someone who's maybe not, not on him a Chris Rock level,but or at least like on TV. Everyone could do it like the stones, all right, the stones would routinely have act open for them that theyliked, that they thought the public needed to see. Now it's which whichled to the booing of Bob Marley Prince. It's quiet. I think he's alsobooking the people he likes. He's not really bringing in it. He'sbooking all his friends that are his booking his friends. Yeah, and youknow, hey, we've all done that. Yeah, well, this point Chapelle'sgot some some popular friends. So, I mean, look what you pulledoff with the gem city shine thing in the matter of also less thana week. Yeah, also, that's John Stewart, Jon Stewart, steviewonder chants, the rapper chance to. What a great what a great whereyou would I always want to see chance to rapper alive. was like,Holy Shit, I don't see chance to rapper. Yeah, stevie wonder allow. I mean when I I because firth, I was like, yeah, I'dlike to go down I could, But then there was like Stevie wondersthere and I'm like, oh mmmh shit, was crazy. We're sure he's gonnamake it. That's a blind joke. But yeah, so I've no doubtthat, like the plut the venue itself will be a cool place togo see comedy. Huh. I just as a as a local, I'mnot, I don't know. I mean yellow springs is still you fellow springs? Okay, yeah, I mean you know, blow away the the thefragrant smell of Pachuli and you got a few Nazis in Birken stocks out there. Yeah. So I'm curious is to see what kind of operating hours.It's good point, and what kind of interaction will be expected when these wonderfulpatrons leave this club and are traveling out of the Yellow Springs area. Arethey going to be introduced to yellow springs finest? Because they were going thirtyseven in at thirty five. I almost wondered they're gonna to treat this placekind of like the phrase over and kettering, where it's going to have they're goingto have to be like, like it's not a club so much asit is like an event venue, right, and everything's got to be over bya certain time because you because the freight. My mother lives across thestreet from the phrase. Yeah, freaking Mumford and charter or Charlie, CharlieDaniels Band was there a couple of years ago. I sat on my backpatio and listen to the and, which was great to because I did tobuy a ticket, but it was like I was still there. So itwill be something like that. Like you said, we're it'll be like seasonal. They can't be open all the time. They'll have to be just like whenstuffs booked, I guess, because it with the tickets. You gottafigure that expense of the tickets. Like you'll pay for like you can paythe run that the building that have the build in the entire year and youcan run as an event center to private event center also, like yeah,keep in mind also to he really likes he really likes music. Like yeah, you could also see like, like Juke joint type stuff into as well. So it's a good point. It's like one of those things. Idon't know. This says that that's is going to be like the end oftwo thousand and twenty one before I think...

...they even get started on it.So it might be a will got we get. They got a while tofigure it out. Plus, now that everything's changing and starting to be ableto reopen again. Yeah, which that's that's changed a lot since last week. Holy Shit. You know, we can do it like like. Well, because now, I mean I was at work when they were when thewine came on the air and was talking about dropping the mask mandate and allthat starting in June, and then the next day the CDC had their wholething and well, I think it's on the mass mandate. Is like hedrops the mask mandate, but then it's up to the businesses they were dowhatever they want. So it's kind of like it didn't mattered. Well,at that point, it take it takes it off of him, though.No, I totally, which is of what I part, I think partof him is just tired of being the the the bullet catcher here. Yeah, and I think he's saying, okay, well, now it's up to thebusinesses. No sweat off my sack and and now. But, butsome of you, the business, are still going to durse. Going totell you. But what I'm what I can already anticipate, is they're goingto want to be able to wear masks. People are going to say, well, the man date's been lifted. You can't make me work. Remember, don't put them gonna go put gas at a laundry basket and I'm ten. You're not allowed in and I don't know. Well, we we wantto their last night buffalo wild wings, and they were already people who likewe're getting turned away because they didn't want to wear a mask. And it'slike really, yeah, but they don't. You only have to wear it insideto you get to your table, once you're yeah, once we setdown, my mask was off. If they just it's not. It's notthat fucking hard people. Yeah, it's people think they're rights are being fuckingI wish I could shoot all them in the face, every single fucking youknow, if you wear a mask, a bullet proof from ask, youwouldn't be dead right now. But it's annoying to me like at my job, that he that rhymes with horizon. You've already had like five or sixpeople. I can playing like we don't have to wear I'm the governor,that we did it. I was like, sir, that's not till June.Second run. Secondly, it's May and Third Sur private business. Wecan do what we want. Yeah, like, but, and this isI'm going to go somewhere else. Everywhere else is gonna be exact and thefuck it's, especially in my line of work. I'm nine, nine percentpause of everybody else can be exactly the same. There's no where you're goingto go where you're not going to be required to wear a mask, exceptmaybe a clan meeting, and even then they wear hoods. Yeah, yougot Walmart. I can see Walmart being like, you can wear them ifyou want. Well, it's I don't want to wear the mask. Cool, go get vaccinated. I don't want to get vaccinated. That's your choices. Man. You know trader Joe's lift theirs, but everybody, we wantthe trader Joe's this weekend because I can't afford trader Joe's. That doesn't reallybother me. What any was everybody still wear their masks. So it's likeone of the same as ads. Like I wasn't surprised that people were theirmassive trader Joe's all part of us. Probably because, because, I think, I think, because you threw about over there and cattering. Yeah,well, I think you have to wear a math to even go through thosemain front doors anyway. So, and what's amazing, and I heard thisthis morning and I didn't even think about it until I heard it, butevidently because of mask wearing, or at least this is what they think,there were much lower incidences, not just had nothing to do with Covid offlu and other communicable diseases that they pretty much a certain the numbers are downbecause, oh, yeah, of mask wearing. I was talking about thatat work the other day. Like so, when my dad had leukemia, likeI went Super Germaphobic, always cleaning everything, wiping everything down, especiallywith where I work at, and so we were already like wiping down consolesand and keeping separate and stuff like that. And I'm a I burned my sicktime by the end of the year every year because if I get asneeze, I'm not coming into work and whatever I burned no sick time lastyear because between all the wiping down and cleaning and wearing the mask and juststepping up the staying hygienic and separated,...

I didn't get sick last year.Gets it. According to my job. I did get sick. I tooka mental health here and there, but other than that, like yeahs likeI didn't like I didn't get my usual like summertime coughing battle. I usuallyget like huge, huge flu like sometime in the summer. Didn't happen lastyear and it's like, okay, cool. Well, not only do masks seemto prevent covid but they seem to just work in general. They do. Watch like herpies go on the rise like after try. Everybody was fuckinglast year because they're stuck at home. Like all you don't know is actuallyeverybody has herpies on their lips now, but we have a mail see themfor like the entire past year and a half because of the masks. Sowhen everybody thinks I was like God damned, a lot of heartpies. Sorry,so many babies being I've seen so many people announcing that they're having kidsnow. Oh, there's I would say that you're going to see a doublenumber of the number of people getting divorced. Oh Yeah, Oh, a lotof people now that the now that it's pretty much lifting and and theycan actually move and relocate and go find that side piece they lost twelve monthsago. Oh yes, so, especially after you have to spend like yourmarriage is already on the rocks, when you were only seeing each other forlike eight to ten hours out of the day. Now you had to spendall day, every day together at all. Here here's what I always I thoughtabout this from the beginning. If you're one of those guys, orfemales, to be fair, and you've set up your side piece in anapartment all laid out everything and you just sugar daddy, you just sugar Mama. You laid out so much money over the last sixteen months and got nothing, none of it. Don't get balls both overs. I don't know howthe Purple Pussy, whatever they call pussy that is, he podcasts name ball, blue balls and Purple Pussy. I should be MC Mike, come toMike Mike. But yeah, I mean I think that's probably going to bethe most interesting thing about the next year is we get to see, forlack of better term, the collateral damage of covid and how it's going toplay out, I think, in a lot of babies, a lot ofdivorces. I still think there's going to be some change in general that noneof us expect. I just think there's going to be some cultural shifts thatnobody sees coming, that are just at and I think it's going to boildown to just basically people saying fuck it to the past. Well, they'rewe're already seeing that with there's a lot of places who have had people,you know, working remotely from home, who were talking about making that permanent, an ongoing thing, with limited people in the office, HMM, orworking from home, saying with like what we've seen with people quitting their jobsbecause they were just tired of working for nothing. Yeah, now that's thebig thing. That's the big thing right now. Everyone's every one's hiring,because I know nobody wants to go back to well and a lot of peoplemoved, a lot of people left la they left New York, and itcracks me up when I'm watching these news stories. Will we just can't findpeople to work, motherfucker, please where do you think these people? Whatdo you think they were doing? Okay, if you're in New York City oryou're in La and you've got yourself set up nicely, you're working three, four different restaurant jobs. Okay, you're waiting tables, you're one ofthe best service there is. You're pulling down two, three GE's a weekin tips. Okay, Covid shut that down. Okay, what the fuckdo you people think they were doing for twelve months? Even if they arethe most responsible food service worker I've ever heard of, they've burned through allthat savings. Okay. So, unless some New York landlord got a concussionand wave the rent for the last sixteen months, they had to leave thefucking town. Yeah, that's why you...

...can find people to work for you. They had to leave, you know. And then there's so many other peoplelike you. Guys said look, they've been running on that treadmill andcovid gave them a chance to look and see. Okay, what have Ireally been doing for the past ten, Fifteen, twenty years? Nothing,getting taken advantage of. Yeah, we talked about that last week. It'speople are just they're tired of just all surdvize and just surronty of life.This, the the unemploy boyment bonus, gave them a chance. It gaveyou the opportunity to to no longer have to decide between paying a bill andhaving a meal. I read something. It was like a tweet that said, like boomers like made like eleven percent, have eleven percent wealth or something likethat. Like millennials have like less than two percent. And you're likeit, but we did everything you told us to do, so it's like, and we put when we let to school. I didn't. Clearly,it's look at, did all that just to put us in debt and ourjust running with that head. I have that argue with my dad all thetime. He just never seemed to fully grasp how different the going to collegeexperience was, the getting a job experience was, compared to when he didit. Yeah, because when he did it you could work a part timejob washing dishes and pay for college and pay for college and Yeah, youknow, me it was, it was. You know, I had to takeout seventy thous and student loans to be able to go and then workat Walmart for five years. And, yeah, after graduating because there wereno jobs, and it's like we did everything we were that you guys did, but the world changed. Yeah, no, I that just like whenthey hire you, if you do find a job in your area and theyhire you and they don't really pay you. Okay, yeah, look, yeah, I have a lot of friends. They go to law school, allright, they they get out of law school because they want to belawyers, they want to be big shots. All right, they get a lawschool. They've got six figures of student loans, MMM, that they'vegot to pay back, can't get rid of. If they're at the topof their class, best of the best of the best. Probably maybe theirfirst couple of years they'll get a job where they're making about eighty ninety thousanda year and they're working easily a hundred, hundred and twenty hours a week.M because you get into the office seven am, eight am, andyou leave when they tell you UK and exactly that sun is down, thereare no more buses running. Yeah, you are, no wonders. Yousaid rate ups really high. Oh Shit, this is your life for the atprobably for the next five six years, and they're they're going to dangle that. Well, you could get partner in ten years. You're not goingto make fucking partner. Yeah, they're going to wear you out until youare burnt to a crisp. I want a lot of people fuck people atwork where. That's where your work all that, that's where you are allthe time. Exactly. Yeah, yeah, just everyone thinks just because you getthe law degree or the medical degree, suddenly the the the paycheck just startscoming. Well, what's got to come from? fucking someone? That'sthe other thing. Yeah, if you go to bed school, you're comingout with six, maybe even seven figures, yeah, of student loan debt,and the first thing you're going to have to do is pay your mouthpracticerider, yeah, which is going to put you so deep in the fuckinghole. You can't do any of those great doctors without Borders things, oryou can't go donate your time at the Free Clinic. You've got to gomake the most money you can. Okay, basically because you don't have a choice. That, to me, is the biggest problem between the boomer generationand now. Is Back then. Yeah, you could get out of law school. You might owe a few thousand dollars and you could. You know, you wanted to go, you know, help Appellachian people or somebody, youknow whatever. You could do that. Yeah, you can't do that now. Now. That's why we created only fans. It's well, Hey, every fucking week we come back to...

...only this one is correct. It'skind of genius, Oh God, to do it. We we sided lastweek. We need to get somebody who who hasn't only fans on here atthe fucking explain it to us. Come on. Did any may reach outabout that? I haven't posted it yet. He's side. It's been a busyweek. It's one of those I get how it works, right,I don't get how it's sustainable in a world war. Porn is free.Get the fuck out of here. I know you send me that clip andI think I explain. We kind of explain that. We kind of didget the same thing. I think. Yeah, but okay, but thisis bespoke porn. Yeah, well, I think the way we will.We called it the the DLC of porn, the video game DLC of foreign because, okay, now, I think it's brilliant in the sense that,because I did wonder at the beginning of Covid what were all these stripper isgoing to do with all this spare time? I mean, there's only so muchcrystal meth you can smoke it. I gotta pay for it somehow.Yeah, so I kept one. Okay. How are they going to make money, especially the girls, in places like Atlanta or land, where you'reused to making serious money? Yeah, and I mean all jokes aside,you know, exotic dancers. It's a legal, legit way for a lotof women who do not have the ability, by time, education or whatever,to have a normal, quote unquote, normal job, to make enough moneyto sustain themselves, sustain their kids, okay, in a decent manner,and they're not, you know, on welfare whatever. So Kudos toyou girls for shaking your titties in my face. I have no problem withthat. But yeah, I mean only fans probably gave a lot of thosegirls freedom that they never had, and I'll bet you there are a lotof them that are never coming back to the club. Oh, I'm sure, because now they've got a they've got a fan base on only fans.And you know, probably some guy says I'll give you five hundred bucks ifyou wear well, it's, you know, because they're paying them, you know, ten bucks a month or whatever, Oh, twenty, and then Iguess there's like a they guess they can do. I don't use that, so I guess they can do I'm cheap. I go with just pornubbut tips, probably, it's probably and exclusive content. I mean, oh, yeah, yeah, I because the guys on there's this there's a showcalled the stiff socks podcast, which is a great fucking name. First ofall, and I sent you that clip and it was the's they were talkingabout only fans. That way. We were in. The Guy was like, I don't go on. They're looking for like the porn star types.I can go on Pornhum. I want there because I want to see likethe ups girl on there. She delivers me my she delivers me a boxand then I get to see her box. Now, have you guys heard thestories of different people like getting fired from job? Yeah, it becausethere's and yeah, only fans page and somebody busting them. Yeah, yeah, I don't think that's I don't think that's right. Snick culture can't standit. You can't fire somebody if he showing nudes on like, but youcan. You shouldn't be able to like. It's not like and it's not illegal. I guess it's some league. It's what it is. It's somebullshit in whatever employment contract people's side. If you have a morals or ethicsclause, yeah, they can get you. Yeah, but ethically can't work meto death. Yeah, it's like get trust what it comes to corporatefine print. I'm not the biggest fan right now, but it's yeah,you see a lot of that. That's why we we talked about people likethey don't show their faces or they wear masks or they blur it out orthat's shit like that. Use fake names so that we they can be like, no, that's not me, that's that's that's lexi comes a lot.Thanks. I don't have the same tattoo. But then you also get into like, you know, Bella Thorne and the cash me out of side.I'd girl who, yeah, utter only bands and made a million dollars ona weekend. HMM, whatever. That sounds about society. We just likememes, man, just like me. Well, we like memes and wehave money to burn. Yeah, we... We have money to burn. And and if I can burn money on titties, I mean I justburn it on. AMC stuffed, and I honestly do think that's going tobe one of the things that we see out of Covid I think a lotof people are really going to start once this is over, as and Ihate the saying, but I think you're going to see a lot of peopleliving their best life now. You know the sense that I really think alot of people are going to look at the way they've been living before,planning ahead and doing this and that, and how it didn't mean Shit tohow they had to deal with the past year. Because I was telling somebodythe other day they were like, well, this really affect the super rich.I'm like, bullshit, it didn't. I heard about people that some ofthe super rich they got on these huge yachts and there's logic, theywere just going to cruise around the ocean until the whole thing ended. Right. What they figured out is eventually they were going to run out of suppliesand then when they tried to go into port at sorry covid yeah, helpyou. It affected everybody and I think a lot of people are going tochange the way they live. I think it will affect the super rich tofurther on down the road post pandemic, when suddenly they don't have the workforcesthey used to. You know, this whole this whole stock thing has opened. A lot of it is to shit. This is this is love my head. It's Mike's Bread and butter. That sh all day love. Itwas our whole St our whole show last week was just talking about that kindof thing. The whole the super richer about to get a shake of thelights which they were seen because for the first time in a very long time, all their peons had a lot of free time. Yeah, time.We had a ton of free time because sudden they weren't having to work themselvesto death to live in section eight housing anymore. Lot of free time,a lot of time to learn new things, study new things and get a fuckingclues and to notice what trends that they were too busy to notice before. That's probably been one of the things I've loved about Covid is its slowedeverything down enough to where you can now, you can notice things that just kindof passed you by before. Yeah, and especially this kind of the kindof manipulation that the super rich have been doing for decades in the stockmarket and in the options market, and you finally got a taste of whatit's like to be on the business. Ended that hard Dick. Now I'llknow it. They're going to get a taste. It's gonna get worse,look worse. I'm so happy, I really I think. Number One,I think that we're we're definitely going to see a bubble burst within the nexttwelve months. Stock Market is going to take ink Elon Musk and all therest of the Dogecoin, bitcoin. I'll take my prediction. I hope I'mwrong. Actually I hope I'm right. I see bitcoin losing seven hundred percentof value in eighteen months. Oh why, Mike, your a bubble. FollowBitcoin that much. Honestly, I think all digital currency is going tolose value, and I'm not saying lose value in the sense I think it'sgoing to be recalibrated to something earthly rather than the same way, because Ilook at bitcoins and all this digital currency the same way I looked at Internetstocks in the S. There's the valuations do not match what's really going onand so eventually all those stocks, those Internet stocks, the Yahoo's, theAlta Vista's bottom dropped out and then they got priced where they should have beenpriced all along, and that's what I expect to happen in Bitcoin. Butyeah, I think a lot of companies. I don't know, I think there'sgoing to be some, you know, because what was I yeah, Iwas. I was toying with this idea. I would have loved tohave a time machine and go back twenty five years, walk into the headquartersof blockbuster and tell them you will not...

...exist in thirty years and watch themlaugh at me with derision. They would ha, we just bought a sportsteam, we've got this, we've got that, we own America. That'sparamount. Calling US now about their latest release. What do you mean?WE'RE GOING TO BE GONE? Yeah, you're going to be gone, youwill cease to exist. They had that, the opportunity that by Netflix. Yeah, remember that. Yes, they had the opportunity and they passed.Pass, because we're blockbuster. And it wasn't long after that. I meanit was maybe like three years after that. Gone, gone, spend them,and then I remember the day Netflix started streaming, because I rememberhen Netflixfirst started and it was her just DVD delivery. Yeah, because the commercialwas hilarious because it was a guy in like a conference room and there's likeall these stereotypical movie characters. Okay, romcom couple to people making out.You guys are going to stacy in. Yeah, yeah, and it waslike this is, this is, and for the longest time Netflix even therewere certain titles that you couldn't stream. Now they were DVD, owned DVDonly. Now now there are they're a fucking production. Come now it's thereverse. Now there are some you can only get on dvd because they neverstream. Yeah, I have been looking. I've been trying to get a copyof white man's burden. Harry Belafonte, John Travolta. I think everyone inAmerica should watch this movie. No, it's not a great movie, butthe concept, yeah, especial, actually the first ten minutes. Everybodyshould have to watch this movie because that was one of my favorite scenes.was there's a dinner table scene where the camera comes in but you only hearthe voices. You don't know who's saying one and you hear the conversation andyou assume, at least I did. Like most people, you assue allthis is white people talking shit about black folk. Camera pulls over. It'sblack folk talking shit about white people. White Man's burden turns everything upside down. It's the black folk who are elitist, rich and running things. It's thewhite folk who are poor, underserved, under advantage and living in public housing. John Travolta plays that. It's yeah, White Man's bird. WillSee this movie, you will learn. I love this movie. Now howold that movie? Probably three plus years old. I can't even get onNetflix. DVD's. I can buy it, but yeah, right to see it. Yet tricky traldos is some interesting movies lately. Yeah, it does. I Will Never Watch that John gotty movie. Just the the No,think Glenn was in that movie go Ahad Shell Dress Children's he really? Yeah, Oh wow, yeah, yeah, I think it'd get naked for it. Yeah, some point. I mean he hadn't he asked, but Ithink he had like something like a thing they cover your dicks. Glan onlyfans we exactly that one is here, that one, because he's also inthe library. Yeah, I thought, I'm worry yeah, I did hearabout that. Yeah, good for Glenn. Yeah, then there's as down doingit, because Don hasn't done a movie in a while Don Smith.Yeah, he's always in a movie here there. It's some slasher movie orhope that that's another thing that since covid, not a lot of indie films gettingthe local slashers and all that. There's usually remember the guy there's likelocal guy who's always direct and one I know, the grey something, isthe guy you did, the guy who did Black Mamba, R court.He's something like that, because I don't know. But yeah, like justnothing getting made. But now hopefully indy movie central and you can go backhere there, because there was always the least three or four getting made aroundhere somewhere. Oh, I think by...

...summer, once everything opens back up. Yeah, I think there's going to be, and that's what I'm hoping. I'm hoping covid leads to a renaissance. Like most historically, most big plagues, afterwards there's like this creative explosition. The Oscars this year was Didney theall create explosion? They're a shooting. Hey was well, a literally explode. The Oscars itself was a shit show, but like every movie thatwas nominated was independent. Yeah, minority driven, you know, and thenthe show itself ended with a big fat turn at the end. But becauseeverybody was counting on Chadwick winning this Postumius award like that was so so theyeven change the order of the awards so the best actor would be last,and then he didn't win. Anthony Hopkins one who wasn't there. So thelast moment of the whole night was we accept this award on his behalf.Thank you, and good night credits. And I was just like what,Oh, what a showick nominate for my Raine's black bottom. Is What Chadwe got Numb, I think. Yeah, yeah, which that one quite afew awards. This good movie. It's great movie. I know whenthey gave him crap, when the picture came out of him and he's likethey're like, what the Hell's wrong with you, because you're not because hewas so think oh when he was yeah, as he wasn't telling anybody, didn'ttell soul. I remember when that news broke. Yeah, I likeI was I was at work and I was just like like starprush, whatI was doing. I could not believe. I called I called my our engineerat work, as he was a big marvel fan to and I waslike, dude, Chuck Boseman just fucking died. He's like, no,he didn't. You're full of Shit. No, no way, and yeah, like Ryan Kugler was talking about, like he's like no idea. Nobodyknew. Nobody knew. I think it's just family and doctor, a closefamily. Well, he was doing all though. He was doing all thosemovies the whole time he was going through treatment, and I'm like, manto keep that a secret. Keep that a secret from Disney. Yeah,from Disney, because he knows everything. Do you think? Do you thinkthey found out? They probably weren't allowed to say anything. Do you thinkthey found it? Because obviously when you do a movie for them, whenyou movies, you have to take a physical. Oh, yeah, youthink that he found out because he took a physical? Probably, if want, I think. I think his wife had said he knew prior to likeeverything, like civil war. Wow, already already? Maybe. I meanI could I could be he knew prior civil where he fought for a longtime. Yeah, you did, because he I mean you'd beat your beingthe odds of there to five year expectations. It was colon cancer. Was,yeah, P cancer, that's Colin cancers from key cancer in general.Sucks, but Colin cancer is just unrelenting. I mean and it's so hard tocatch too, because it can look like so many different things. SoI loved his James Brown Movie Has Jackie Robinson movie I always Forgett See.I always remember Jackie Robinson. I always forget that he played James Brown.He did a I thought he did a fine job as james when he playedthird good Marshall to did here did yeah, fuck, he was a guy.I love him his James Because I just love the scene and Mick Jaggersays it didn't happen like this and him and James are cool and all this. But I just love the way in the James Brown movie Chadwick Boseman howwhen he finds out he has to open for the rolling stones and it pisseshim off so much he goes out and just torches the stay and then ashe's walking by him coming off, he was welcome to America. Boys likethat. James Brown. Oh Shit, that's funny, because he learned howto dance and everything. Oh Yeah, Oh, had to head to tea. That is you know, I was great. That's up there with wewere talking about Rommy Mallick and being yeah, absolute last week. That's up therewith my wife was just watching that and she was she is not abig like those kind of movie Fan. It got her. Yeah, Gemianrhapsody did. She loved it and I did not even notice until I wassitting there w watched it with her, that that's Mike Myers. You wetalked about the exactly. Yeah, I...

...didn't realize that was him at first. Think about that. You Got Mike Myers telling Queen nobody will ever bebanging their heads in a car listening to Bohemian raps at a I was like, come on, I want to see the outtakes from that scene. Ohmy God, that is got to be crazy. Yeah, that's up.That one, the James Brown one. They're working because they're working on thisnew I think it's Amazon or who's doing this series about Tommy Lee and PamAnderson. Yeah, that they lie, I don't know, but they gotthey got lily James Playing Pam Anderson. It looks like she looks like Pamand ersking and Sebastian stand winter soldiers playing Tommy Lee. Motherfucker, is TommyLee. And okay, holy I like Sebastian stay, like I watch that. They put that picture out and they had like a sidebyside and I waslike, I don't know which one's the real one. That's crazy. IKnow Courtney Love was making some big stink about it, but I could givea fucking Cotyla. She's like best friends with Pam and Anderson. Yeah,but I could give a fuck with Courtney love things. Honestly, I havebeen best friends with fucking what's his face or to be alive while she killedhim. Yeah, corn, just just keep in mind there's no statute limitationson a murder. We exact. Okay, so you keep that in mind.Either she gotch either she killed him, or Dave groldd but I think Davegrold did it just because he wanted he wanted his own band, notman courtney. Courtney killed or drove or drove to roll. If a daycroll really did it. I want the FOO fighters, I want to sing, I want to play guitars. Bullshit. That be epic, like heel turnof all time when it comes to like, Oh my God, that'dbe up there with who was the wrestler? Chris Ben Wah? Yeah, Oh, yes, Jesus, dark side of the ring. Yeah, andthen there was somebody gotten a bunch of trouble recently. is or no,people we're asking we're shitting on the wwe or something, because I think theywere still selling like Crispin Wa merge or something like that, and they werelike cold, you maybe not do that. Hey, who gets that money?Yeah, because killed his way, Emile Dad. Yeah, and that'sweird. Yeah, it was. It was either them or like something somebodywas selling, still selling the licensed merge. Well, like that. I willsay my impression of wwe change once I watched dark side of the ringreallyly, oh to. I mean I knew, but I didn't really knowuntil I watched, like when I watched the one about macho man, savageand islet. That broke my heart. I had no idea any of thatshit went down. I know, I hap it, Dude. Yeah,it's deep. Have you ever watched? I your seen John Oliver Talk aboutthe wwe? I mean now I was like bits a piece of dark sideof the ring. Okay, it's really good. The Macho man said,I get Elizabeth, got hooked on drugs and left Randy for some other rest. I can't remember who it was, basically odd in his room. OhJesus, yeah, it's real tragic. And then the story about the roadwarriors. That one I love, the Bret Hart Montreal screw job. It'sthe one that was the one because, you know, I'd always thought,okay, I know wrestling scripted and Blah Blah, blah, blah blah,but to know that they fuck their own like that as like Vince mcmain,you're going to rotten steroid hill. Ye annything about Manto man used to bein the red minor league system. I did. Yeah. Well, thenyou got Jay lethal and ring of honor. For a while there was doing likea like a spoof on the macho man character because he had like abrief stint in the wwe or something like that, and he was like alike a like a like a super black version of the macho man, somethinglike that. She lethals a weird fucking guy. I Love Ring of honor. Ring of honor is like what everyone like. When you watch like thefirst spider man movie and he goes to that wrestling match, that fucking BachoMan is, Oh yeah, and it's like that's what ring of honor actuallyis. It's like that scene come to fucking life and I love every minuteof it. is a guy wrestling named...

...cheeseburger and he is the man,she's she's gas actually really good. Is the thing. It's I think thereason he goes by cheeseburger is like he had made some comment or something likewhen he was going by his regular name that he like love cheeseburger. Sowe were always bringing him cheeseburger, so it just kind of stuck, Iguess. I don't know, that's funny, but that's funny. I remember whenwhen Hogan Hogan, when whole Hogan's life fell apart and like two thousandand eleven, like when the wife left him. But I love sponge.Yeah, he he talked about a guy who who got who got fucked bythe system, who, you know, his wife left him for a fuckingnineteen year old. took him for every fucking pen. He had to sellall of his member billy, so every time sold his house, moved inwith his daughter and ended up having a still go back to like TNA wrestling, because what the fuck else was he going to do? So a lotof these guys are as what joy made his money back in that sex tapething, though. He made some back. I think he got. Yeah,because basically what he basically got enough back to where he wasn't like hurtinganymore, but like he got fucked in the divorce. Oh, yeah,hardcore. And what. She'd been with him forever. Yeah, like they'vebeen. Yeah, they were married for like thirty, forty year or somethinglike that. I mean, their kids were grown and but his life fellapart, and John too, because like his also, like his son wasstill, I think his son still in jail. But like the sun wasat he was able to pay us on the legal fees because of that carwreck he had. And then, you know, he was still like ona light, like a producer licensing, because his daughter got her own spinoffreality show. But then it was a family fell apart. The show gotcanceled and just yeah, so he was, like he still does like all kindsof behind the scene shit and training stuff for for WWe, because hecan't do anything else. Yeah, that's how a lot of those guys are. They get stuck wrestling until they fucking die. Yeah, atticted the painkillers because, I mean fucking see him punk talks about when he like hadthat concussion, but he was supposed to go oversee so they basically just jackedthem up on so many pain killers and put them on a plane and putthem on a plane and then in that next match he gets the I thinkit was our randy, Randy Orton puts him in a headlock and he fuckingshit his pants in the ring because he was so jacked up on pain killersand shit that he just lost him. He got put in this headlock andyou see his face just like it's shit. He Shit himself in the ring.It's just I never honestly watch wressling other than wrestling is better than everythingelse. You like, never the fear and yeah, it's wrastling and it'sgreat. It's the manliest soap opera on the face of the yeah, it'sliterally it's like watching a soap opera because you can walk away for five yearsand turn it back on and you good. Yeah, you got two heroes.You got to Villit a way. I'm never watched on TV, butI've watched like with there's clips of them like on facebook. I'll watch twoclips for whatever reasons. I think, man, that's crazy. Athletic rightthere. The clips are great. Yeah, like it's fake in that, likeit's scripted, but like you can't fake jumping off that top rope.I mean like there's enough of its real that like these. Will also lovethe movie the wrestler.
