Man M check it out. Irecommend it. I've played it, anno, not a lot. I just now. I wantrevey want to be the impostor. It looks, fucking fun, Lik, my buddes at work or,like yeah, happen to Ye ot times like it's never fucking happen. I've been playing this game. Call thatYoure played dead by daylight. An I don't know how to video games. You are,but now I've Seen Greg Simpson play yeah, it's hard. I always just I always wantto play as the kill. I M. Everybody always wants to play as the killer, butit's so hard defind those games where because everybody wants to plays thekiller, so it's hard to find full games where people are willing to play as theI guess you call them victims. I remember what they actually call m thesurvivors, but Yasa it's gets kind of cool because, like they incorporatelike actual like you can be Michael Myers, you can be fre Kruger. You can be the killer fromsaw stuff like that. But then you can also just be like generic F. You can be.You can be ghost face from scream, that's coolyeah, which I realized the other day I was, I was going through my moviecollection. I've never actually seen a single screen movie. I've never eitherand I parody Screan moviees on Jess. Twenty of those those are well. Thefirst two were great, but it's I don't know, I'm not a bighorror movie fan so therar been my two favorite form movies ar the descent. Okay. Just I don't know why. I likethat Mary, so much ind, only really consider house of athousand corpse is a horror movie that', Just Gore yeah, it's just it's just aslasher yeah, and it's so funny too. Like EA, it's kind of it's almost likelike an old school exploitation. Film Yeah, it is Rob Sombie, so that kind ofmakes sense like I'. Just never been. I don't know it's because I'm so thatthey're so prodictive. I think that's why I like to send and see it as beingpredictable yeah. So my favorite movie, My favorite horror movie, is the thing.I've never seen that with Curelseh Dude. It's it's bon the IT's lates earlyhes! I think, but it's it's it's so good, it's sofucking scary, because the whole idea is like you can't trust anybody, andit's also just just like the practical effects, are like amazing, like it's the fact thatthere's no CGI at all, that's Ikan. I have to watch this nic yeah and it'sjust it's an also, but it's also like it's a fucking gorfes like there'sstill some stuff that I have T. I have to look away, I'm like Yo can I got Ta,I'm a pussy with stuff like that, but...

...sous abot way make me hungry its weird, I'm like at my fuckingfucked UPNG yeah, it's a good one. They made a because it's technically aremake of like a move from like the S. okay, that sucked that was. It was whathappened then, like a ton of Remax of that movie, there's Onlyo there's onlybeen three different versions, the original from like the TS, which waslike a black and white movie, and it wasn't very good. There's John Carbersthe thing which is the one that I'm talking about yeah and then they made aprequel to it, which is also called the thing that came out in like twothousand and ten because the Moove Gaus in the thing you in the Curt RussellOne. It starts off with him going to this other research lab in the PartyArctic, where they're at and everybody's dead. So the PREQUEL isabout that research lab and how they and like how they found the fucking,alien and Shitts. It's a fucking, a you find out in five minutes on Ily, but I didn't know that parsics o played thevideo game. Oh okay, yeahyour game was on sixty four or somen yeah, all right, but t the prequel that came out wikethosand, ten sucks. It's like it's a fucking, CGI fest, it's just not it'sit yeah hen, it looks it looks fake, a shit. I think it's the hardest part todo about movies like that, like to take a movie that was so old that had no SGand then then remake it or do like a precooler sequel whatever. Now? That'sall CGI it takes away. You saw that a little bit with like in the Star Wars,rereleases because like if you, if you go by like remember when episode onecame out like there was a puppet of Yoda. If you watch it now, they'vereplaced it with the CGI Yoda from episode two and three and it just it itdoesn't. It doesn't fit no same thing with like when they did the rereleasesof the original trilogy, where they had added all the extra CGI shit. So someof it was fine, a lot of it wasn't now. A lot of it was, I think, the only because I saw I sawthe special editions, the the first like big CGI rereleases in theaterswhen they wesat least, which was cool yea D. I was seven, so it was star wars. I didn'tGev fuck wild going back and watching him. Now I will say I think, of thosethree I think empire strikes back is the one. That's like like it's honestly,like the least touched now yeah yeah know. I agree with you on that. Isaid yeah now but Dnitely Grt, because, like e episode, one all they really didwas like there's that there's that scene with Han and Jaba and they likewalks over and it's like so weird looking like he steps on his tail andShit but like it's almost like, I don't even think they added that or somethinglike so the original the original scene is Java was like a big fat dude, itsLik Firti, what you're right yeah and so when they redid it with it with thebig slug guy, they incorporated the whole himn like stepping on his tail,because they're like wait. A minute 's got like a fucking. Thirty foot taillike I couldn't just walk behind him and it looks so weird because he's likethek yeah, it's it good, but j Jedi's, the one that, like the most fuckinggratuitous shit, ireally watch, it's been fairssens every watch because theyswap in the musical number Jabas Palace. Do they really yeah? Oh Yeah, thefucking? I fogot about that? Oh, my God, and they I will say they do make theSarlak pit look more like an actual fucking monster because it's got likethe beat coming out of it like a thousand teno goals, the originalStarlik pit. If you told me a woman's vagina, look like that. That's is a episode of South Park wherethey were dealing with the whole priest, molesting kids thing and there's thisbranch of cat and so they're having this whole debate with all theCatholics and they're like the one friest like we need to stop having sexwith little boys in the prescope. But if we do that nd then whereare we goingto get late and theithe Priese coes. Well, WE'RE JUST WAIT! I'm sorry! Whatdid you just say s Wat? You guys are actually doing thislike yeah. Are you not ises how bout we just change the Holy Vatican Law to saywe GAT have sex with women and then there's this race of aliens who areCatholics and they're like the GALGAMEC.

VIGINA is thirty two feet wide and histen rows of sharp teeth? Nd I was like. Oh, it's the fucking ser like tha,that's Fuckis, fun, but yeah like I went and saw two yearsago. Th T it was a twenty fifh anniversary of Jurassic Park and theywere showing it on the big screen and I was surprised at how well it held uplike CGI, wasn't really hello because they used Tho use. They use like halfpractical half CGI like the T. wrex was like mostly built, and then they just CGIthe rest of his body over it. And it's still looked, I mean that movie lookedreally fucking legit, even on a big screen. Now there was like one scenewith the Valasa rapters, where it looked a little motion blurry, but itheld up for the most part I than what's sn. That would be the rapters. Was it inside like it wasthe final. It was where the was the rappers fighting the T recks in thefinal scene, that one looked a little yeah okay, butnot not like bad, but again. If Ninety nine percent of that movie still looksgood because there's that first shot where like they get to the island andthe whole welcome to Durassic Park scene, where there's just like the bigopen field with the Brackyesorusis, like that it looks so good, it was onan IMX screen. It looked fucking amazing Shoui gather see that now I w love tosee that move in theater again well, yeah they brought it back for pandemic.They did. They did a lot of those thit's. Why, like even before thepandemic, I would go to those those fathom event screenings, because theywould show like wrath of Con, like for the anniversary and like getting to seesome of these classic movies on a big screen is worth it it's. Why hit's? Why?I'm really hoping we find a way to like unfuck the movie theater situationafter this, because I just I hate the idea of that going away it. I agree completely, there'ssomething to say about going. slike, a movie thetrn just watching it on thebig screen like Igowe, going to see going to see end game in theaters was half of the experience was like thatcrowd expen. When Spiderman swings on to screen and everyone's just fucking,and when you know cap gets the Hammer, I mean you hurt people outside of thebuilding could hear his fucking screaming. I mean it was insane. Youcan't get that watching a movie at Homo. You don't you'rejst like. Oh that'scool, that's cool good for you. I've been so many releases like that yeah.So many like S. like all the time I E in high school, I used to go allmidnight releases, Oh yeah, all of them, then all the transformers movies in themidnight releases, all the Harry potters midnight releases that thematrix well. The matirs is interesting because the last one they reallysimultaneously around the world at the same time, oh, did they yeah. So Iactually had to call off school. Oh No shit, Friday called off. I want to see called offschool ye, ICAL Calle, the principal hey got. Take I got to take a sickthere. Ci Just din't go in N. I was like Adi the movies that nine in themorning Holy Shit Yeah, because that was the goal of that move as release osimultaneously everywhere, once wow two bads too bad it sucked it was for. I thini see wasis the second one of thethird one. A third one see that's the one like the second one's, not good,but like had the third one been pretty good, it would have been okay but likethe third one's so bad, I saw it movie three times that day, oh Jesus, I waslike all right and I got really sick. Oh yeah, I was like I remember. I sawthat maybe threueh and like my Lik, because I I want to because I lovemovies that wight. I don't really like watch movies as much as I used to, butback then I was like really like in the movies I yefor T. it's like all right.I want to be part of this like go see it yeah it s. So I went that morning.So you whet right after right. After SchoolOgo see it my friends and we want to go see it again because already had likethree tickets yeah, it's like okay go but bike in between the second nd.Third Time want. I see it. I was like. My throat hurts an I found out. I hadlike fucking like the flu and STREP Throa et. I was like Oh,...

I would go to the movies all its evenlike I, because this is back won movies R. Like Eight Bucks, I would go just bymyself. I Soh even now, like I you as an adult like I joined the the cinemarkclub eigt eight bucks a month and I get a Freebie every month and all mytickets are or like half off, I don't got to pay fees. I get like twentypercent off of the snackstand shitit's so good, but because I CASA usuallylike every Thursday of Friday, I'm going before covid. I was going to themovies and I would go see shit that, like normally I wouldn't have gone tosee because it was it was chealy. Wandn'n saw the foreigner with Jackie,Channon, Pierce Brosman, good fucking movie, never would have seen it if Ihadn't had like a half off ticket shit but yeah. Now it's it's. I think whatmight end up happening is like or back in, like in the s where goingto the movies was like. It was like a big deal like you go,everybody would wear like Tuxes and Nice dresses and they'd show the newsand then like a kids movie, and then you know you had your b movie and thenYo your main event movie. I think that's what I might go back to we'relike you'll, go to the theater to see like your big event, tent Pol movieslike at end game or a star wars, but I think you're Gonto see a lot more indieshit, getting smaller, smaller scale movies and just indi level stuffdropped on because, like the neon here in Dayton's,been been doing great because they've been making deals with distributors towhear. If you want to watch these indy flicks, you can just watch them throughthe neons website. You just pay for a ticket. Oh Ju Bing it on the websiteyeah a great idea. They've been they've, been doing, I mean not as good as theywere, but that's how they've been doing better than most f the other fuckingmovie theaters right now, yeah! Well, because that's the indiefilms already know they're not going to get a huge return on their movie anyway,so they like fuck at least people are seeing it yeah, as opposed to you know,that's why black widows been delayed till God knows fucking when, becausethey don't want to drop that on streaming. I no that's a hundredmillion dollar movie they're trying to make money back on yeah that what else is gonna wonder, woman,James Bond Wha. Are they mov any of these movies g? I don't wonder EI'msupposed to come out last year. They pushed it back just because they werelike. We want to wait for like it was supposed to be going to be someanniversary or yeah. Remember the anniversary thing and then so then that got fucked. You know its a black widow was supposedto come out in asabout March. No May Bolan O ise got fucke. I got fucked onmiline. Likey thing is wove on, like you said, like thirty Dols, you canwatch it or you can wait two months, yeah watch it and then it wasn't eventhat good. It wasn't. I don't know it. The biggest problem was like in theoriginal one and I've only ever seen the original like twice it's a goodmovie. It's not want to go back to was she wasn't? She wasn't a soldier. Shebecame a soldier in this one she's like fucking, Mary Sue X. Makina like shealready knows how to fight she's all righ. She doesn't need to learn Shit,she's, just a woman, so she can't be a soldier, so the when she joins the army,she's fucking fighting circles around all these guys and I like okay, soshe's fucking Superman. I don't give a shit about her now like she didn't haveto learn. She didn't have to learn a lesson she didn't have to like. She hasno ark she's shes Fuckingshe's awesome when the movie starts she's awesomewhen the movie ads, who gives a fuck te upfloated it and there's no Moos likethe Matrix, yeahfight, I'A, half FY, hell Cotter, I don't have Yoah. I Know Cong Fu, I miss movies parmissmovies. So when use to do commy, fesitals right yeah, the main thing I do before the Commet Iget there like you know all the shows, usually at night yeah. So in during theday, if I'm out of town, I go watch a movie yeah, that's what I do. I gottaKill Three hours and now like that's. Why that's how I did almost all thelike the past, like three or four years, how I did like all the avenger moviesand that type of stuff? Really I don't Wat ecause like movie comes out like I was so likegoing so hard at comedy that I did not...

...have time to watch movies until mycomedy Funtil comemy festival. Okay, so I be like okay, like I want to watchthis movie this. I think one comeny pes, Fi Wyl, want wont to go SA. like in t eduring the noas there for like three days once to go se four differentmovies, Jesus yeah, that's how the the film festival I do at my almamaderevery year is it's. They know, becausethey're a small town in themiddle of fucking, nowhere in South Carolina, so they got to get peopleshit to do so, like the fir usually the night before, there's usually a partyat the at the bar by campus and then the day of they like it startsat like ten am but like they. They show a classic movie, there's usually aworkshop of some kind, and then they do the actual festival. Then everybodygoes to the bar and gets hammer but like yeah. If you got people coming infrom ot of town, but you're not doing shit till nine ten o'clock at nightyeah, you got Ta, you got to do something yeah I on I don't Wanttofucking, I'm an introvert, so yeah like I, maybe I'll, write igover my materialeither way but you're either going to sit in your apartment and G, your hotelroom and go nuts yeah. How far have you traveled for afestival, s FARSYOUV, traveled three hours? Where was that outside of loo was like two and a halfto okay? Two hour for Tom Minutes, that's hy Louiville, it's Col might have been further. No, that was the farthest oraght underthree hours, I'e only I've only ever done. I did fireworks last year, andthat was a really. I don't do. Tfat ther competition wine, that's allgone,not a bi, I'm a chicken shit with with competitions and stuff like thatbecause, like I know, I'm good, but I know I'm not like gonna win good, sopart of me's kind of like Wel, not Goin, a fucking land was the fucking point,AF gus Ik yeah, but I will say last year being the first time I didfireworks like. I was so ready to do it again this year because Iwas it was sofun thanks. It was it all. It was just fun too, like S, seeing I've never seenwhile he's that packed. I still have that picture of me just up in the back.Jstill have that picture of me just up in the back. Just like Holy Shit likethis, so many fucking people here pack it out it was and then and yeah, even even I walked at a Goinlike the pretty fucking good. Actually, Karen actually told me like how manyvotes I got I was like. I was like. I was like three shy, Oh really, which was on one hand you're kind oflike you got to be fucking kidding me because I did actually have threepeople who were supposed to come. They didn't make it oh shit, but also dusty,brought like his entire fucking family, which anever my mom was like. Does thatmake you mad? I was like no because dusty did really fucking good likee didhave a great set if HEU went up there and ate a Dick andstill mate Ed to thetop three that hi Hav been like some bullshit, but like the guys who made itlike they made it for a fucking reason. Like I said this year, I did when I didit. I had like five applause breaks. No Shii did not make the finals no shit.There is a go. That's because, like her was like, Oh that's because you know mybro Ot Hep, I was like no everybody just did that fucking good, like it wasgreat like this year it was fucking iw, fiework, wis, fucking crazy. I was likeI even told myself. I wasn't going to get past. The first round, like I sawLim, I was like Holy Fuck. This is a good lineup, andthen fucking Hav. I was like to Fivplasricks and I didn't think about it. First and then mybody draws again, fiveafclous braces a really SI watch the videos like hol shit. I had fiveapplause, raks Utso man again that just like you saidthat kind of just goes to show just like how fucking quality you're goingto get a that fireworks. I think I think if I had a bit more notice, Iprobably would have done it this year, but it was one of those like. I didn'tthink it was happening and then one day it was, it was just kind of like hey.This is happening like in two weeks and I was like fuck. Oh, it was definitely like is weird for a lot of people, because,like this year, especially at wiles, is likeonly one of the only comeny clubs, open, yeah, yea funny bone hasn't opene backup yet like I'm talking about in like Kentucky Oh ans, you're talking just inin the area par Yeah Holy Shit, so like yeah people from Indiana coming out otmore than like, we have some out of...

...towners, but you get a lot more peoplecoming from like from out of town out of town e dollars to the winter. So,just like all right, I make sense because because go bananas they likewere open and closed and open and well they didn't they didn't do. Obviouslythere was this year, yeah theylate, didn't they switch ownersagain I've? No! I have no idea, I don't think so. Maybe maybe I'm thiningsomething else I swear. I saw thes switchd owners again or something Idon't know. I love go bananas, I'm only I've only ever been down there for thefeedback Mikes, but I just I like to lay out of theroom. I like the FIL. I feel it's very old school like it's got a it's got the feel that the backgroundof funny bone stage suggests it has. Yes, when you'V got that at that dirty brickbackground and and but then you remember what fundy bone is yeah. I Love Shit on Fundy Bot, fuck,funny, fuck, fine, fucking, he'l, never book me Hi'll, never book anybody infucking Dayton, EI, don't Hane to open back up and date.

If you're doing comedy shows on Moseday weekend, peopleare going to have an expectation when EXACTI and I guess the owner, it was atthe Columbus funny bone to Jes. I guess the manager, Whatever said he did, andthey never. He never said who it was or anything like they never like, like hisTis type of comic. This is what we're having and most of the time I peopledon't like his matare.

So funny onstage, but I couldn't I couldn't- I couldn't get two words out of him onthe like. I was asking like on when he brought up the fact. The like collect,Lego, lego models, and I was like fuck yeah. Let's talk about that and he saidlike two things about and I was like come on m get you can't, you can'tbring up lego models on a comedy, cut, podcast and then not want to fuckingtalk about it. Go on. My cast is very very quiet. Ut, like like conversation,wise he's so fucking funny because, like he'll say something short andquick and you're like Jesus Christ, it's fucking funny yea. I don't talkanymore, Oh really, H! We got into it. We got to no it last year. Oh whatabout? I was. I don't remember, because ithappened with the span of three days of each other, but it was either theMemorial Day, tornadoes or the Organ district shooting, and I don't rememberwhich one it was gh, but he was taking shots at at news team response. I think I think itwas the Tornados Gatcha, but I basically told him I was like Orno Ouknow it was the shooting because he was like how cone we didn't hear morecovrage about it right away. I was like you not understand like how the processworks, like I explain to him like how the process works like they have to getconfirmation. They have to call people at home at one o'clock in the morning.Wake Hem up get hem in there get their factory, they can't just go startreporting on Shit and he started calling me like a fucking no at all and fell Miga fuck himself, and we have Ospokun sin: Fair, Var, Game Yeah, I'm, unfortunately, it's tricky when,because it's easy for a lot of comics, like I se icy off tenter doing all thetime you know they take shots. Ot, the media and stuff like that, and I get itand so it's weird being a comic who works for quote. UNQUOTE, the mediabecause, like I understand how their process fuckingworks, and so there is that part of me that tries really hard not to be thatguy who's like actually, let me explain to you how the process works, butsometimes I kind of feel like I fuck I have to sometimes O do it's everybong everybodywants to think they know more than you yeah constantly you cann be like. Thisis really how this actually works. Like it's news like it has to be reportedcorrectly yeah. If it's not reporte correctly or something happens, you andbe sued right and- and this is- you know- I won't say the name of thecompany I work for, but there are a company- that's been under a lot ofscrutiny in recent years, and so they want to make sure that they get theirshit straight because the last thing they need tos somebody else coming atHem, saying that, like you know their shits, fake or produced or whatever, sowe live in the age of fake news being a thing so taks yeah thinks are going tobe a big thing and when it' something... fucked up as the shooting I meanyeah, you want to make sure that you're not getting out the wrong information, youknow fucking wild night yeah. I was I remember because I was becauseI was I had just left for my vacation when ithappened like the night that I happened was my first night sleeping in a tentin Pennsylvania, and I woke up at six- am to a billion phone calls and textmessages from friends who knew I lived in Dayton, whowere making sure. I was okay and then I was finally called home and I was likemom. Why is everybody fucking in the she was like fucking g, because mybrother and his girlfriend at the time we're living above above neds? Oh Shit, they were livingthere. I have a friend WHO's, a bar tender, still a bartender there andthen a girl. I was seeing at the time was there that night, because she wasbest friends with said bartender, so it was one of those like. I was callingeverybody because I wanted to, and thank God like nobody, I knew got gothurt. You know I know. Obviously a lot of people did but yeah it was it was.It was fucked up man. It was a fucked up weekend because again, that waswithin a few days of Memorial Day, tornadoes which was three days afterthe KKK rally and 'sa Weird fucking, yeah I'll, always remember that,because i'Mwa up to a bunch of misscalls text, whatever it's alras, no,my sher was my fiancees time. My wife Mulessa Wooke me up she's, like hey something happened: Orgganis Hust, likewhat sure Shit I was like holy fucking. Themost fuckd up thing was o that, like all comics down there yeah so like, Iwas going to go, we're going TA, go out drinking buddy, Kevin's, ferst, nit HOSand we're all going to go out drinking Kevin, ruper yeah as R is first week inhosting for DJ Jangler ohmygos Shit. He was GOIN NA go out afterwards and N. Iwas going Na go out afterwards, but I got so high. I was like musts. You guys drive mehome, so we didn't go out. Joe Youngy just didn't show up theorgan districtbs. We usually hang out like in that area, and everybody else is in anenaps forKiltony, that's right, ruck and so we're likewhat Tef Fuck Yeah. We were all like it's wild because we were in eitherArans or Neds, or some like something like down there and like we weren't,for whatever reason that night we weren't, I was baked off my a it's crazy to think how much help canhappen, because it was like thirty seconds. I know, and I had arguments topeople about gun control. Yeah Theyre, like an my armyent, was like the cops arealready there yeah like like and he still Kal wa. I eight people NII canseven nine hilled killed nine and then I think, like fifteen, were injured,yeah and thirty thirty seconds they caught like your argument of like ifthere 's a got good guy with the gun, they were already theyr. They wereliterally across the fucking street yeah like it didn't like they could nothave responded faster unless they could see the future and already knew it washappening. Yeah I at minority port, yeah N. I know that I know they were goingafter. I guess the guys I was either late last year earlier this year, theguys buddy, who I guess it I don't think, O the mods and Shit and becausehe yeah bcausehebecause, he motdat the fuck out of those guns, and I know they were trying it becausebecause one of the victims was his like sister or something sister yeasistered,I don't know t did the birt or no. He killed his sister sister Bu, but, likeI'm saying like sister brother, because it was like he, I don't remember it wasthere was transgender involved, and I don't remember if it was. I don'tremember that I remember I just remember for running the story. It waseither like sister was going through transition to be a man or vice verse. Iforget which want to watch ot, something like that yeah anyway,regardless it was, it was bcause because hen als there was another onelike like in fucking text or something that night the same night wasn't there.It was the morning that morning that...

...morning it was alere. There was twomashhotings on one day, yeah that was the most wild. That was the craziestfucking thing because, like you, my Haydi'm, like F, like Ere thinking on my head, I think I'msalking Jollyon about to like, like fuck like that, like that will neverhappen here because Lirra, it just happened like Texas that morning orafternoon, all right well and you wake up to allthat, because it happened to like eleven at night or some shit like thatand you're like what else fuck and it's like it's not just. Thissounds disingenuous. I guess but like because we're such compared toCincinnati or Columbus were such a small potatoes. Nothing down, I meanwe're basically a small town surrounded by big metro areas. So there is thatpart of he things well, this is going to happen anywhere, it's going tohappen at Columbus or Cincinnati or Cleveland or even fucking. Youngstown,like not datneverthing, would happen fucking dat and it was wild. Actually Iwhen, whenever stuff like this does happen, I always there's that there'san old calvin, an Hobs COMAC that I always think about weird transition. Iknow, but in the comic their house gets broken into is this is this? Is O this?Was this? Wasn't one of the sun this as like over a series of like dailynewspapers, the three panels and their house gets broken into and one of thelast ones they talk about? Is the parents talking and the mom says, likeyou know, thisis, always the kind of thing that you think happens tosomebody else and the DANC says yeah, but you got to remember that you aresomebody else to somebody else, and so, whenever fucked up shit like thathappens, for some reason, that's the first thing I think about. Is that yeah,like you always think this isn't going to happen to you, but everyone? You arethat other person that it happens to notsomebody else and yeah. That's deep right for fuckingcalcum hobs man, which lycing back to the peanuts thing. I'vealways been shocked that that Calvin and Hobbs never got the animated treatment of any kind. There'snever been a calbanahobs cartoon or movie, or anything like that, like I'msurprised that never got like a shot, especially nowadays, oh for sure,there's. Definitely a porn. Yeah is just yeah, of course, Cavin and a Hobon my not Calvin and KNOBS, but yeah like like you', think likelike Holu or Netflix, or somebody what a hoped on that. Let's make a CalbianHobbs, kids stream, an o, a good idea. I don't know I nobody would ever doneat. I wonder if it's Someine wlnever someody try to reach out to the Creatorand he's like no yeah bill, waterson's, a weird fucking guy ID, be it yeah, butjust yeah tha, that's Changin up. It's called Alvin obs and you like damn like thenven fucking.Try At this point. We were running I'm Halloween weere at the new stationtheyare.
