Now I got afucking just the whole Texas abortion thing.It's like I can find it yeah you're good. So this is from the hill so match and bumble are both based outof Texas. So they are setting up release, fund relief funds to anybodyaffected by the law, and then Ubera lift have said that any leak because, likeif you're, if you drive someone to get an abortion, you can technically getyeah yeah, so Uber Lift said they will cover any in all legal fees. Good. If,if that's someone you know picks them up, for I not only that's like there'san abortion, bounty, yeah. Well, go daddy pulled it, but then I guess tick.Talkers were a fucking spamming it with memes. Oh really,that's what I read I heard yeah they dropped a go: Daddy dropped, anabortion tracking website that was launched, help enforce the six week,abortion band, saying it violated the firm's terms of service. The antiabortion activists move the site to another web posting company, epic,which promptly shut it Downn as well good yeah. That's that's so because itwas it was. It was like a ten thousand dollar reward. Some shit like that wasjust like this. Is it Texas is keeping the iskeeping the anti abortion built to make up for all the people they lost intheir Anti Federal Power Grid? This a three likes meanwhile mark Hamill tweets his name,an Gatua's mark, fuck animal, it was a bet to somebody was like MarkHamill could just tweet his name and would get thousands of lights and readtweet, so he retweeted it with his Mark Hamel. It got like the one pulled up.Seven thousand, I think like in the first couple of minutes. Let me see Igot a pull because the mark handle thing because it was. It was just somerandom person that said it just some random guy because he tagged him in it.So he saw it it yeah er, Mark Ham will follow me forlike a day. Oh did he really yeah? It was a part of a contest,...

...but it was only just to follow oneperson about how he worded it o Ye. No like yeah. It was weird bay,followed everybody for a day, though, on Kay as cool the Dell Dell. Computers is becausethey're based on a lot a lot of Texas companies based companies, are speakingout about a dell. CEO was really pissed. Let's see, I think it's kind of the bigI'm just bat like yeah, it's it's a fucking. You know you keep seeing allthe memes likening it back to like the handmaids tail. Well, yeah Super Cockie.I never watched that show. I know I know the premise of it I haven'twatched is the premise: it's basically like this future Dystopian Society, where men arecompletely like one hundred percent run. Everything and women are basically justliving in a slave state. O okay, it's fucked, it's super fucked grey Gabit isthe manifestation of all the PAPES P prevented my plan B. Fucking Greg Abit Mos find this other one. There is anothergood one that I liked I was just like. I really wanted that fucking power gramwhen the work so good, but that's funny. Shame on you, people for not likingthat tweet. I know that was good see. I do like this, and this is notsometimes I watch the movie fight club and think they have the same first tworules of being molested. You don't talk about it. Somebody said right for words.Every girl wants to hear whispered in her ear. I said Texas is the worstTexas is to worser. That's good. Did you see Gen Sacky, shutting downthe reporter about the abortion band? Now somebody. I think I can OK my phone upto the hook, my phone up to the things you can hear it, but she this reporterjust keeps going after her and going after biding about opposing textspeaking out against Texas abortion band, and I don't know who the reporterwas for, but you can tell it- was like very pro life pro LIDER Fox yeah. It wasprobably Fox. I wouldn't be shocked. Here's one! I want a modern day wrongcom where an anti factor and a vactor hook up get pregnant, have to have anabortion in Texas. We call we Ken that Grey abits. Here we is the is the GEN Saki video teachers. Abortion believes that it's awoman's right. It's a woman's body and it's her choice. He believes that it's up to a woman tomake those decisions and up to women to make those decisions with her doctor. Iknow you've never faced those choices, nor have you ever been pregnant, butfor women out there who have face those choices. This is an incrediblydifficult thing. Present believes that...

...right should be respected. Go ahead. Ithink I got to move on. I think we have to move on. You had plenty of timetoday. Go Hell an she like, you've, never shut him. The fuck down that was a fuck around and find outkind of thing. I saw Mina said scientific method, fuck around that's good! That's I wish I'd do thatwhen I was teaching that's fucking funny yea the abortion man, so fuck, it'sjust it's! You know I just I remember there was a time where fucks like that.Never would have had the balls to speak out about to speak. The way they doonline and and in politics, and ever since fuck face was president.They have like this new revived sense of whatever I'm going to do. What I wantconsequences be damned kind of thing I just yeahwas killed anyway. I got okay,fucking stratum yeah a like Texta. Just I don't know Texas is it'sjust so, like not people don't realize a lot ofpeople, don't even know they're pregnant yeah before six weeks, yeah even after yeah. It usually takes atleast that long, because anything before that like, if you take a test orsomething, I think it's anything before six week, I think they said like it's alot of false positives and a lot of it's you just don't know. Well, no, Ithat, like I want to know what Republican bought stock and hangers ina Texas company. That's what I want to fuck it now,because somebody fucking did that Shit Yeah! No, it's just almost like it's awoman's choice like who gives it like, yeah but, and the irony is like, if theytruly cared about children yea, there would be no children to adopt in Texasit's I. I want get it back to when when Mayor Pete was running forpresident, and he was doing that that town hall with Chris Wallace, he wasasking him about the late term of bortion. You hear what beauty just said aboutthat now. He basically said he's like you know when you look at these theselate term abortions. That are, you know, seven months whatever into thepregnancy he's like you have to realize. If a woman has kept the baby that long,that means she has planned on having this baby, she probably has a namepicked out, probably has a nursery built, probably has bought clothes andis ready to have this baby and now something some kind of awful terriblenews has come along where she is forced to have to terminate this pregnancy thatshe wants to have this baby that she...

...wants to have. Probably, can youimagine how like hard of a decision that has to be that far into it likeit's, not like it's a that's, not a I'm going to go just it's like it's likeshe planned on having the baby, if she's that far into it exactly so for,and it was basically, it was just like you know, for us to sit here and andgrand stand that she shouldn't be doing that on odds. Are She doesn't want todo it in the first place you know odds or, if she's doing it,it's because she's choosing between having a baby and dying or the babydying in child birth like it just it's, it's an incomprehensible thing and weshouldn't be just passing blanket laws that could get a lot of people get a lot ofwomen killed either by having to go through with dained, potentially dangerouspregnancies or who are going to go back to the back alley. Abortion days, yeahthat are really unsafe and a like hypothetical I've always thoughtthis on my head. This is all crazy. I am a kid: If you want to have an abortion,you can't have an abortion say like that. CAD is not like. What's thelikelihead of that kid, turning out with loving parent, you know what Imean like like, like it just like. If that person really is want to havethat kid, that kick it in foster system thatcould be thrown up for adoption, that kid could be not loved by their ownparents and where they fucking just fuck, become fucked up. You see what I'm saying like I don't know. I just there's a there's, a quote from John Oliver: I'm going to pull it up here where hetalks about. Basically, the idea of you know like life startingat conception, is what a lot of s Republicans believe and then versuslike the a lot of these, and basically, I think what he said was what it shownis that conservatives say this, but seem to believe that life starts toconception ends just before a sexual assault happens and then starts againafter the sexual assault as concerned, as has happened yeah because in thattime, where a woman's being or anyone is being sexually assaulted, they don'tthat doesn't exist. Yeah was your Abbot said today that, like they were goingto stop future rapists? How is that possible? How if I canwatch too much of my Noor to report those, and we all know how that ended up yeah,but he literally said like stop future rapists, like I just you're going to stop. LikeRepublicans, I don't think you're going to stop Republicans and NFL playersreally yeah. It's a come at me on twitter, it's fine it just it feelslike sits a huge step backwards. Oh Texas, is I mean it is not now Tiarthey have the power grid. That is also wait. That'swhat it is: they're not they're, not up...

...on the times, because they have ashitty power gris. They don't get the news as much any amish they're like amish light not even likeAr fifteen can get abortions and fucking they love a r fifteen. Now Texas can play fucked up. I don'tthat's a woman's right. I think that's choice at those the o. The day I waslike, can we just give Texas back to Mexico? Yeah, no shit, we're done withit. We had enough. It's a surprising thing. Is Mexican Mexico made it likesays something about abortion laws today? Did they really like a in linewith Texas? Well now, Mexico? What I your fucking, what to belike no fucking dex is, I don't know why I'm a Thousan like an Italian Texan. I remember when, when Obama got elected second time,Texas was talking about succeeding from the US, and I was like do it. Okay, goahead. Fuck around find out see what happensscientific method two days later, we're out of cows were Oh shit. We no longerhave airports, we no longer have any military on. We have no funding for anytherns, no currency. Our money means hit. It was the same thing like withBrexit was like they did when they were talking about doing brag, okay. Well,you got a plan for all this shit that you're no longer going to have and theydidn't at fucked up and it fucked them up pretty bad that so, when Texas wastalking about seceding and mere wish, is like yeah ask the Carolinas how wellthat worked out. Sixteen six succeeding, not succeeding. Yeah like their currency, be Texas, toast I don't going back to using the Paso Yeah. Theygot an even they use that but pay a second start train we illegal trasarttrading bullets is currency. Is here, go that's shot on, show. That's atleast were twelve children, Texas, the one state and I'm prettysure does like one of those things like when he tradessomething for spouse. No Gary Salaries, yeah, I would not besurprised. Dowries are so thing in Texas, dowries and racism are pre. I will say the N Words Seven Times. Ifyou cut my grass, although that's one of my favorite things about about family guy favorite, Huh fuckingbits ever- was a real quick one, it was Abraham, Lincoln I've seen thiso his name.

It's not what you think either not what you think even a little bit.It's a once upon a time there was a guy named Tom Creen and Tom Green was a weird guy. Remember show one ofthe favorite things he did a bit called under cutters, yeah wed on Er, like he follow pizza toevery guy yeah, and then he like tried to undercut the price. All I have to do is bake the pizza thatwas so fucking funny ever family. I think it was the springbreak episode.

Can Istop doing this? Thet is fucking wild. Well, fuckingFreda got finger. He had ripped torn in that fucking movie yeah, it's a hardguy to get that's true, but I guess he has a great sense of humor because healso did dodge ball yeah and all the men in blacks, yeah he's dead. Now,yeah, that's about I like them. My favorite thing is about on the fucking.Luck of the Irish sign falls on them and what was pons funds character willbe fine. As long as we got patches like hallmark like a fucking, he sayssome crazy line about like a hallmark card like falling on patch. I can'tremember what the line is, but I'm like it's fucking funny. I love that movie.That's dodger ranch! You can go, go ball what the fuck! I don't know ifthat movie sparked many a High School Dodge ball tournament. It did it did.We had one my team fucking lost to they put me and my nerdy friends up against.It was guy from the football team, one of whom the dude's name was literallyApollo King and I'm like. I play dodge ball against this fucking. Eight footmotherfucker really Polo K Jesus that, like I don't know that that was such agood movie, though m they don't do comedies like that much anymore. Nowthat was kind of that that that was towards the end of that air, becausethat was like right when Justin Long was getting big. You know well the like. There's nowacky com like so like weird comedies,...

...that just co comedies that you're justtrying to make people laugh is not supposed to be rhyme or reason yeah toanything, speaking of which guess what I watched last night, what bober insidea dude, I had a bit of an extent crisiswatching that fuck is not that's great. That was, it was Amzi was like. I saidI don't like, but burn move to you you don't I do, and it was one of those. SoI literally didn't know what to expect. All I had heard was the Jeff Beso songand welcome to the Internet inter fantasticyeah and and and my girlfriend watched it, and she was like this fucked me up,and so I was like okay gameless as were watching it, and, and I had to pause ita couple of times and just kind of sit and hold my head like really well one,because he because he edited all this Shit Yeah, so the one where he isreacting to his reaction of his reaction with the action as an editorthat had me like pause, how yeah, how like it just. Oh, my God,I wanted to ask you: ask You about that. How is that even possible? So the wayhe would have had to have done, it is a he would have had to have his wholething scripted out and timed perfectly really because and then just shot the main one in itsentirety. Oh, that's how he would have had to have done it, which is, and I'mtalking from the beginning from the where it starts at the purple room tothe end. He would have had to have that whole thing, pre written and timed. That's why Idon't even know how many takes that was, and then you just take that video andoverlay it into the video you're already in again and again and that'swhy I'm like all post production but the amount of again his timing, but have to be so perfect. My onlyguess is, there was probably like a hundred takes and he had to find theone that lined up the best or he had like a timer and a stop watch orsomething in there and keeping track of how far in it. It's again it's and I could becompletely a hundred percent fucking wrong. I don't know it's that creativeyeah of as, like my favorite part to it's yeah, that one and white woman's insinuate woman'sInstagram, I about pissed myself that was funniest for, but you can actuallysee him going through shit. Yeah like I had to do some research and I wasgoogling it when we were sitting on the couch because after it was over, it waslike. I turned the TV off and I was like I need a minute because I was like okay: Did heactually just live in that room the whole time, or did he actually? Okay?So he actually, because because I could totally believe that he did yeah. Iguess he didn't like he was, I guess, living with. I guess he lives with hisgirlfriend or whatever, but I was like, but if you had told me he did, I wouldbelieve you yeah, because he sells that he's. He sells itso well that he's just been living in...

...this isolation. This whole time andslowly like losing his mind. He does look like not losing his war, like Los, losing his grip. No, I win grip,it's just. It was the cove. It was the coved yeah. It was Covin, so you justcan't do his month, so you're kind of like just getting kind of depressed.Well, I also I didn't know about him, taking the break because of the panicattacks now yeah. I knew about that. I hadn't heard about that. So I was likethat. Actually fucking happened like I, so that was part of the. I guess howmuch I didn't really rise but like when it shows the shots of him just likemeasuring the lights and riding Shit down. I was like, Oh my God, I've doneall of this and and wanted to rip my fucking hair out. He did it and made afucking Netflix special out of it and it's it's a great net like so it's likewhen he's doing the thing where it's him sitting in the chair with his ownvideo about why you shouldn't, kill yourself projected on to his chest yeah.I was like Oh okay, who I try to think of my favoritethere's this one where he does it with the lights and he has like his phonebehind his back O he's like moving it around him and it's like right. I can'tremember it's just really weird: it's just a really cool like visual. Itcreates a were like he had to think all this stuff out, and I like in my head,I'm thinking how many times did he have to do this? How made him? Because itwas just him, yeah he's only one in there and also like I'm looking at thestuff he was using and a part of bias, also kind of, like my God, the budgetfor the Shit Oh realize it's like some of the shit that he had is so expensive,like just some of those light things. I think, where he's literally got histablet and like you draw to adjust the exact color of the light you want yeah,that is thousands of dollars- oh, that doesn't surprise, yeah so stuff, evenjust that camera alone probably cost like three thousand dollars. Thecameras are expensive, but he used the same microphones that we do so yeah. So I I was floored at how good Bill Burnhams Inside Is holyfeet like an visor stuff. I watched like Serri loved it, and I was likethis. Is it's not for you. This is art a Oh yeah yeah, this yeah inside, thatis, that is some like New York, art district thing, you'd seelike in a as like as like a like a piece in a in a gallery or somethinglike that presented by a guy wearing a scarf andsmoking a cigarette at one of the AH cigarettes yeah. That's that this isthis. is his suit can on a stool. He did not cut his hair or shave until theend that that last song he's doing where it's he, you can tell it's kindof a rough hair cut and yeah yeah. He actually grew is that's the sangs Iliked about he actually Ye. I mean I'm pretty sure that part was real towardthat was as real air and were you beard, but I do yo like at the end and it likeswitches back to like the beginning, yeah, before everything or or when Y,like wakes wakes up in the bed. Yeah...

...he's Great Bo, Burnham's sides, greatyeah, Goton Watch Bo Burns inside. Do it, but don't expect to laugh a lot. No, I don't, and really there were somestuff that I did me like again. What woman's Instagram I left. My ass off,welcome to the Internet is on a funny ear and fog. The Jeff Beso Song isGreat. There are some genuinely funny moments, but a lot of it is just him just trying to process the world welive in. Well, I think that's partly why I'd never like his other specialsright. It's because, like I felt like as other specials, have to be like it'sa live performance yeah, so it's kind of like you have all these lights andall that type of stuff, it's cool, but like it's not made to see live. Is thatmake sense? It's all on that foreman yeah. It's all spectacle yeah, becausehe's the guy who got big on Youtube and and it's the it's, the epitome of a youtubeor taking their show into a live format. Yeah just kind of how I stand up is soyeah you have like watching it live in a in a theater. I don't think would beas good as watching it like on Netflix. That's what I'm sayingis like inside was made specifically for, likeit's not supposed to be. I don't know I don't like to when I want to see jokesyeah. I don't want the other shit here, yeah, Jo. What whatever I look is leasenick crawl. Does that yeah one of his specials were like it interrupts thestand up with a bit wet with a scene, and I'm like Idon't is the scene funny yeah, but I just want to want to stand up, and so Ithink, like one like his songs are good whatever, but, like I don't need likethe like the flashing and all that stuff, I use an to hear the jokes ofthe song, so I'm like okay, but I get why people like it totally cool yeah,but I, but I think, that's why I liked inside so much is he was able to likeyou're, seeing it how he wanted it perfectly done and you're like this isart yeah. This is actually art yeah, it's not a it's, not a comedy special.It's a it's an art! It's an artisan high concept, INDE film by Comedian,yeah, yeah and some songs are funny and it just happens to have some comedy init yeah and then I just the the lighting and stuff like that, so goodthat yeah, the stuffy like the first one he does rhes got that head LampYeah and looks up and hits right on the disco ball. That's going around sofucking cool, yeah yeah, it's so clever like the stuff. He does I'm flow again.The production of the whole thing I am floored or when he's got the K Y is oneof the last songs. He does everyone put your fucking hands up or whatever Yeall eyes on me all eyes on me. Where...

...he's got the camera on himself and he'smoving? One camera he's moving the camera around himself, but it's alsobeing projected on the wall behind yeah and I'm just Oh, my God, there's so much to unpack with it. Ijust- and I think it's crazy to think about in that that he was ready to docomedy again and then Covin yeah happened almost like the world wassaying not yet yeah and all eyes on me was kind of always on me. Fuck me up alittle bit really yeah that one, because, because it's that that, like I'm, not okay, someone,please pay attention to me and realize I'm not okay, yeah kind of thing: that's a lot wrestling and boat barse and BowBurnham, not the weirdest show.
