Now you've never hadone this. When I was growing up I had a young one, butlet mean like I was I was eight. My mom took care was part.Other than that, I've always had adult cats. I mean Rosie's almosttoo. So gotcha. So, yeah, this is this is a learning experience. I've had to reach out to a lot of cat friends just likewhat do I do for what? Because they just because Rosie's being such abitch. But home it's literally because it's territory that it literally might my catswing brought in another cat. One cat was like a week. Yeah,it was like all right, yeah,...

...and I also feel like she wasa little put off because I brought to home because I was hold on theone for my mom for a few days. Yeah, she just follows me in. I said, I open up this carrier and he's two little orangecats comes out and she was just like nom, not okay with this,not today, hissing and spitting. Then we're real. What really shook mewas when I got home from work and Rosie was waiting from me the door. I picked her up and she hissed and swatted at me and I waslike Oh, no, bitch, really. Yeah, I was like no,bitch, swatting at them is one thing. I feed you swatterday.Yeah, she's just and swatted at me and I was like we're not doingthis. Wow, anksty little teenager. Yeah, yeah, did you hearabout the demilovado thing, the alien shit or yeah's it was just called extraterrestrials, aliens, and I like her. If you don't know where time out, den Nevado said that. We she stopped calling him at aliens because thatmight be offensive. Yeah, we should call them extra restaurants. And Igot me thinking. What if, like aliens went by the n word.When, like, you know what I mean, they to come down,you're like, Hey, where the and do we cancel them? Now?We can only allow black politicians and soldiers to communicate with them. Than itwas. Yeah, that do like go, what's up? My Hmm. That'sall stake. It now is like what if that like, what dowe do as a society if that's what they call? That's what they youliterally go by and we're like we need you to change your rentire races,name yeah, that's what we'd say. Why? That word is like theking of all racial epithets here on our planet. Yeah, but we're likeFivezero years more advanced than Nice. Blow us up and we've got lazer's bitch. They literally like we get blown up by a bunch of it's a weirdpremise of a joke, but I just thought about they find our white skinoffensive. Yeah, they're all like very dark skinned, and so they findour paleness offensive and just be there. I don't know, I was thinkingabout that Shit. I was like that what we do. It like what, like, wait, you guys, go by what you will. Youcan you can't say that. Like we've been doing this for thousand, likeof generations and generations, and that's who we are. Yeah, that's ourwhole identity. Like, I'm sitting there. I'm like what tough, what areyou? What are your people called? We're called humans. You're called whatdo you know how racist that is? Hunch a humans, man's hard assto that's they do. That's what they do when they want to human'shumans. That your I are allowed in here humans or they calls humans totwo ows. motherfucker. I was just...

...literally taking about my wife. Ilooked at me. She's like, what the Hell is your problem? Thatwas like you married this. Yeah, the and I think it was Ithink the Deo Patrick or not newbout Neil, the grass Tyson was said, youknow, Patrick Hair Snel, the grass dies. And was like allthe aliens I've met seemed to be fine with the word don't. Don't engage. They don't engage. Meal just just, I think the way, the weirdestpart about the whole thing is like what if they didn't even exist anylike I believe aliens exist. Yeah, I think I'm a mathematical perspective,like there has to be. Yeah, but like you're also come up withsomething that's like might not exist and you're like we shouldn't call them hard hogwarts. So that's like that's something like that. You know, like what the fuck? Vampires? That's racings like this. That's the kind of Shit you'd seeon Tumblr. Yeah, like that's some tumble level bullshit right there.Call Them Aliens. She call him extra transteals cum on Star Trek, geton that. I want a race of aliens that their name is the nword.

I ever heard a DemiVadas? Like we should call him aliens. Might be a finial called extra fresholds, like we're like, what if they just went by the n word? Do we have to cancel them immediately?

Once again, head on over to our website, www dot tblpod dotnet. That, Robin Williamston, you sent me fucking crazy. Holy Shit.I I heard of the actor Jamie Costa. He's like he's a comedian. He'sbeen around some of the stuff I've watched online, so I knew wedid a really good Robin Williams impression. That is something else, though.Everything spot on. That is that is like like it areaks scary. Yeah, like the facial expressions, the cadence, you know, the eight going frombeing wild and Wacky to that when he's really serious and soft spoken,like the way he gets his eyes to look. I mean it's yeah,it's scary, it's hard. It's almost hard to watch because it's just sohaunting. I Know Zelda, Zelda Williams, his daughter, she's really active ontwitter and people were like blowing her up and she show says she's like, I'm not going to watch it. She's like I know what it's about. I heard it's great. I don't want to watch a video of mysomebody pretending to be my dad at a really low point in his life,like Yeca, because you don't blame me if you know anything about the story, like like blush dying is what got him to kill, to kick coke. I didn't know that. Yeah, he talked about that like in hisinside the inside the actors student know that. But like, yeah, because himand him and Belushi were the best of friends and Belushi dying from fromcoke is what got him to kick it. That in a grand jury. Butbut yeah, so that's why that's like so like for him to capturethat so well, this moment, like this defining moment for Robin Williams wherehe's just doing coke all the time and then Belushi dies and it's just likeinstantaneous, like I'm done, I can't do this anymore. When, mean, he talked about he also talks about into that one interview about like howit was like it was that getting arrested and then like his son was bornlike right after that and it was just kind of like, yeah, Ican't do this anymore. But that, yeah, that that test footish thing. I know they've been I know they've been dancing around the idea of makinga biopic about Robin Williams for a while, but he's Im and then that longhe really it was a twenty fourteen. I don't know, but I don'tknow if you should do a biopick yet. No, but also,if you're gonna do it, better pick this guy. Think anybody else.People aren't going to be happy. Thank you. He wouldn't be happy.And I was like, what is you gotta see what I can fucking do. What the Hell? I gets picked for everything? God, yeah,because I've heard there's been there's been like...

...scripts of floating around the last fewyears about a George Carlin biopic. I don't know who the fuck you getto know that. Only name, only name that comes to mind for meis Bill Burr. But like he couldn't pull that off. No, Idon't know. It's I think it's more or less just the intensity. Butlike actually like being George Carlin. That's just that's such a that's a likebeing a comedian in general. Like like you can, you can get areally good actor to play a musician, because a lot of it is,you know, an interpretation. But if you'RE gonna get somebody to play acomedian, you almost have to get somebody who's going to go like, youknow, Jim Carrey, man in the Moon Style and and find a wayto giuse. He even, I know, like to copy other Comedians cadence andand style on stage is impossible. Yeah, so, so, soI'm always so weird about doing those those dead comic shows. It's like yeah, but like just going up there and just trying to remember somebody else's jokesoff top of my head, like I one time I ever done that.I did I did a double way. I did Heath Ledger as a joker, doing Mitch Eddard. ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. I dressed up as the joker and Heath Ledger and doing to te shows. That's fucking do you do an impression of the joker or yeah, likethe jokers? Like, I can't do the voice anymore. So I'm tryingto think of a good what's a good head vert? One? Recently Iput a put. You ont hear a story. I put a line.I put a lemon in my drink and I watched it float and I thoughtto myself, what if I held on to eleven and a line when Ifell into the water? I am saved by the buoyancy sexress. That's rightsus so many troubles. I still do, but I used to to. Itried so hard to do that voice for like a really long time.I remember I was a freshman, you're a college when that first trailer dropped, and it was it was right after heat ledger died too, and Ijust remember every every dude for Halloween was the jokers trying to do impression.I tried to do the impression cause I knew I wanted to play him.Yeah, dead comic, I want you to do cat like I had ifI ever did it, that's what I was going to do. So forlike a year, I try to get the voice down Pat. Yeah,it's a tough one. It is very I watched trutorials how to do likethis guy that was like dead on. Yeah, and I how he doesit's like really, like my key's fucking spot on. He tells you howto do it. It's like there's a lot more to it than just mouthlike like the voice, like there's mouth movements and face, little facial movethat's what this Jamie cost to doing a Robin Williams thing is, like hegets it's not just the voice, it's everything. Yeah, that's the themark of a really that's where it goes...

...from being just an impression to likeembodying that person. And Yeah, with with Heath Ledger's joke, especially.That's such a tough one to do. You know, do you see thisnew Batman trailer? Holy Shit, looks fucking great when he's just taking amachine gun bullets walking through the hallway like it's fucking nothing. Just, Ohmy gosh, the suits made for also, nobody aims for his face. Idon't know, I never understood that. We'll stay with cats in America.It's like am for the legs, you Dick's. Yeah, came forhis chin. Thing for Batman's Chin. This tole one thing that's not covered. And UH, so everybody can see this. So the way the policecan see these white yeah, that's it's as. The trailer looks really good. Yeah, looks really, really, really good. Yeah, I've it'sit's like the one they drop last years. Like I've watched this thing on repeatlike like six, seven times already. That's too that and that new flashtrailer doesn't sneak PEA. Yeah, because they they just finished filming likelat two weeks ago. They really yeah, but yeah, like that sit youcould hear Michael, Michael Keaton Talk. In that shot of the mask,you almost see the batmobile. Yeah, the Black Adam one was neat forbeing you don't even actually really see the Rock, but it was cool. or how that's going to be received, like twenty fucking years. Get castas Black Adam forever ago and they've been trying to get this thing fucking made. I don't know it's going to because they're also putting out another doing anotherShazan movie. Yeah, but did you see, like after all these trailersdropped the mare, Disney real rescheduled all their fucking movies. Do they really? Because they because this was we didn't know when the Batman was getting released. They just said I got pushed back to next year. Will. Itsays March fourth will. They were also going to release doctor strange to inMarch. They bump that shit back to April. HMM. They moved abunch of movies around for some of these release dates because marvel was like,we're not fighting this shit, you shouldn't. We're going to give the doctor strange. Will get eating alive by the Batman, Oh easily, and Iam very much looking forward to doctor strange to you. But the Batman's goingto rush like Holy Shit. I've I'm I'm starting no wonder if maybe thisgo around DC destroys marvel be weird. Maybe. I know they had thepremiere for the eternals over the weekend. I haven't they have it. Disneyhasn't. So film studios will put review embargos where they don't let you publishreviews of if you go to these early screens, you can't post a reviewuntil like a certain date, and they haven't lifted the embargo yet for theeternals. So I haven't heard any reviews or anything yet, but I'm reallycurious to see because that is such a unknown. fucking no, but knowsthat is. I don't even know what that is. Yeah, but yeah, I think you're right. The good...

...chance because some of the stuff marveleven pushed back. Two Thousand and twenty three. They switched at me onthe wall the next day at Man Movie The two thousand and twenty three MMM, which they said, which they've been working on. So I'm like,okay, they're fucking scared. Yeah, I think DC starting to kind ofget a handle on their own shit. Well, I mean that they finallywere like they if they knew they fucked up one's snack snighter and they didthe whole sacksnire thing. Yeah, they can't really knew they fucked up.Well, and the ones they have coming out like they when it comes tolike they're they stopped worrying about the universe shit. Yeah, because joker crushedwasn't part of this whole universe thing. Batman's Gunn a crush, you know, black Adam, flash and SHAZAM are still part of that, but they'reso disconnected from everything. Well, no, and they're not trying to make marvelsall like, Leus make this big story come together. Yeah, it'sI don't think they're trying to make this big story to come together anymore.Not Anymore. No, they've abandoned they've abandoned that, and also with theFlash, because it's like this whole multi dimensional thing. Yeah, you canjust you that. That way, you can use that as a safety andout of like now we can have four different Batman's or whatever, because they'rein this universe and there in that universe. And also just who gives a shittheir movies? If they're good, they're good. I think it's thecraziest part about marvel, about phase the first the end game is think youhad all those movies lead up to one moment. Yeah, that's the craziestpart about the whole thing is everything was relevant. Yeah, and it's sucha like the level of undertaking that that is. I mean that's that's thekind of shit they do in comic books. That's comic book level writing as faras just, you know, moving pieces. That's like what they didlike in crash, where it's all these different stories that are in little,tiny ways and are connected to each other. And that was just one movie.But it's taking that on a much grander scale. But now also we'rekind of sitting like okay, cool, so what's next? Yeah, andthat's that's what we're going to see, I guess. But fuck, it'sjust it's gonna be very interesting. It's gonna be very it's your go gettersare still spider man, MMM, and then doctor strains has like a fallowing. But yeah, the hardest part is you got ready to to make.You got ready of two main people, iron man, Kama America and andI know, but those two of them all popular just even before like Spireman, steam most popular. Oh yeah, find me it, find me especiallyin marvel. Find me one of the people love more than spider man.Yeah, he's he's on a level of Batman. Yeah, that's far andit's also one thing he has in common is like duet like the best villains. Yeah, he does, like playing the play in the the playstation gamesand which is kind of like, who am I gonna fighting this shit?Yeah, WHO's the bad guy? Who are all the bad guys going tobe, because there's so many? Yeah, there's so many of some of themare dumb. Batman has condiment king...

...a good point. Who Exist?That's a thing. Give me a throwaway. See the beginning of the movie.Batman just taken down con anything. And this, this is what Ibuilt this armor for.

My mom is usually in on all that shit. She watched it wasjust kind of like really, yeah, but everybody else on the Internet's losingtheir fucking minds. where? All I know is they eat these fucking candiesthey got to break apart and something to do with Red Light, green light. That's all I know, and I'm also not about to try to watchwhat I got to your subtitles for. So yeah, and I have yetto I don't really care to watch it. No desire, although cowboy bebop,just drop there because apparently, I think. Are they doing a cowboybebot in that flax wive action thing Netflix? Okay, I've never watched any ofit by parent. It's a big thing. So I'm not a biganime guy. I know that why the last man show on Fx just gotcanceled. What's so? Why the last man? Don't know that. WHO'sin that? I don't know. It's I know it's the live action showbased on an anime and people fucking love it. And I saw today Igot canceled. I don't know. I don't watch I I don't watch anime. And and so wheneveryone says, though, they're like they're making a live actionthing or this, I'm like cool, I probably not going to watch thateither. Yeah, like death note. Didn't. Everyone said the death notething on Netflix sucked. Cool. I've never watched death note, soI'm good. I'm all right. Yeah, and there I never watched attack onTitan. Didn't watch the live action thing. Like it was a liveaction of that. Yeah, I think. I think Necklik. Netflix did it. But IFLIXD US wherever they want, whenever they want, how they want, they can. They've got the fucking money. To do it,although I see a saw. I guess they're getting ready to do like awalk out or some shit over the there's a bunch like some employees are doinga walk out over the chapelle thing,...

...like like it's kind of hurt them. I don't know. I don't know. I still haven't watched it. Iknow you haven't either, so that is ire to I just don't yeah, but apparently, like apparently Chappelle's like point got kind of proven because JohnGrout and your vouch for dropping or John Gurd and. Yeah, so apparently, like and no joke. He literally like called this black dude, saidhe had like Tire Lips. Oh, yeah, Fuck John Grut do.Yeah, he's right, shit, didn't do anything. Yeah. Then itcomes out that he says Fagot MMMM and the email. MMM, they him. Yeah, and Chappelle is like kind of any special heat. I askedsomething about it. Yeah, and they're like yeah, that's kind of whathe said in a special is like we can make fun of black people allday and a way, like, but soon as you go after that you'redone. Right, and I was like, I kind of prove that's kind ofinteresting point. Then, yeah, like I said, I don't know, sorry dropping the F bomb, but that was like the only way toI give it. Yeah, I get it. Yeah, it's I wewatched in South Park right now. They say that word a lot. That'skind of having me going wow, we got away with it that much,you know. I mean that is an interesting point. We I mean,and obviously, like racial stuff is still such a huge fucking issue. Wesee it all the fucking time, not just with police but just in general. Yeah, because I don't know what all of a sudden in the spellspecial to really, you know, add anything of substance to that other thanjust that is kind of fucked up, but that's what did it, thatthe racial stuff was let go but the homophobic stuff was was the line.Yeah, that's and like I asked something specifically and they're like yeah, that'sexactly what he was referring to, and I was like, Huh, that'sinteresting. Yeah, I don't know, I kind of makes you want towatch spetals to say it's a special because I think people just hear trigger wordsand don't yeah, and that and I'm it's well, I'm not and I'mnot saying that anybody out there. Who was? Who is, you know, lgbt was offended by what he said. I'm not going to tell you you'rewrong. If you were bothered by somebody said, that's your prerogative.I mean, I can't tell you how to feel it, but you know, yeah, it does kind of make me want to actually watch it andjust know what was said, but I just I don't know, watch itliterally be nothing. Yeah, I said the Work Trans or something. Idon't know, our trains, but also trains, and they're like it's alsoone of those things to look at it from both sides. It's you know, the last one came out of people. People were just kind of like maybethat wasn't a great but it died out after like a week. Ididn't think he did anything bad in Latin that one, and and and Iand I know and you talk. We talked about that one. But that'sI'm saying is like the last one, whatever was said, people kind ofseemed to get over it pretty quick. Yeah, this one's got everybody upin arms like hardcore. So that really...

...does kind of maybe say like okay, what did he actually say? Here's the thing I had. I KnowTrans People. Yeah, that are think it's a great special and I knowTrans People that hate it. Yeah, so I'm like, I am fuckinglike, what stuff. That's why I'm saying that's why I'm saying, like, if you're somebody who has a problem with it and you fall into that, into that group, I'm not going to tell you're wrong, and especiallybecause I don't know. But it just doesn't mind that. Like like somepeople, like some Trans Evil, like yeah, it's love it, andnow others are like, yeah, and there were black people that voted forDonald Trump. Where they black, though? Ha Ha. But seriously, Imean there work besides the hodge twins, candace Owen's and like diamond and silkand maybe his really, really really tan friends, if but it's justsay it. I mean there's it's like that with every fucking group, man. Yeah, they're, they're so it's just it's just stir recording, bythe way, double check. Yeah, the recording. We're good. Ikeep looking at it every like every couple of seconds, like just making sure, and since last week I've I've like I uninstalled, reinstalled everything. I'vebeen I've been using it a lot, just and I'm always checking to makesure, I don't know what the fuck happened last week. That's so forthose who don't know, because you wouldn't know, because there's no way youcould know. We meant to do one episode last week and five seconds intothe recording the software froze up, but we didn't catch it. I didn'tcatch it till we were done, two hours later. I look down onjust when you got to be fine kidding. So a recording and I'm recording thebackup straight to the board to so there will be something. She's justme saying, he saying the Al It's the only thing that's gonna make itthrough. But yeah, I my curiosity is definitely peaked, but not enough. I'm still not gonna. I'm still I gonna watch it, but itdoes kind of have me scratching my head a lot again because, like yousaid, like I have an lgbt plus fans who are fine with it andplenty more who are not, and I have straight friends who are straight friendswho are fine with it and straight friends who are not. I have comedianfriends who are fine with the comedian friends who are not. This one's reallygot people split. Watch it literally being I don't know, I'm just interestedto see and be like well, that that really wasn't anything. I wasjust pushed. Yeah, you see him saying, yeah, I know it'sso saying like it. I think it's one. I think it's honestly oneof the other I think it's either nothing or something like really fucking heavy.Yeah, like I don't think this is a middle of the road shit becauseif it will, because the last one...

...was kind of middle of the roadshit. Yeah, this one, I feel like this is either nothing orhe actually said something really fucked up and then, as you want to,can some but you can't, because it's only making even better. It's justgoing to prove it's just going to and he's thriving off of the attention rightnow. Like all as pissed off as everybody is is he's loving it.He's living for it, which kind of has me going, like not agreat look day for but you know, but I'm also not one of thoselike I don't thrive on people hating me. Yeah, it's his hatred. Hejust knows how to get people over out up. Yeah, but that'salso never just been that's also just never been my style. Like it worksfor some people I fucking love when you don't hate you, do you do. It's just that's just not my thing. It's not for me. I wanteveryone to like me, please. I don't know. I don't thinkit is going away anytime soon, though. HMM. Why? Since last special? It's going to do too for a while here. He said that. Oh, did he? Yeah, this is called the closer. Hesaid, yeah, it's because I told you, watch like the first fiveminutes, right. Yeah, and he said this is a last special I'mgonna do for a really long time. He's gonna go build his club andYellow Springs and or his restaurant that has a club in it. So it'slike he kind of knew, like our kind of makes me wonder how,again, depending on how serious is actually yet. It's like kind of makesyou wonder, like how's this going to affect the place that yellow springs?It won't you know, they will. People loved Chappelle and people go tostuff. Doesn't matter, especially around here. It's just people fly. You gotpeople flying. He was doing those shows to come see him. SoI won't affect his his fan base is so who huge, it doesn't matter. It's true, and the people he can bring in there, it won'tmatter. And I guess one of I'm just one of those people to like. I just I don't. I'm not as star struck by Dave Chappelle's mostpeople are because I didn't grow up around here. All my star Struck.I canna grew up around. Yeah, you, but I know you meanthere's some people who, like Dave Chapelle, can do no wrong and for meyou comedians are otherwise and for me he's just never been that. Ididn't watch a show a lot when it was on on. I've watched itsince and like the thing with the Wayne Brady episode's fucking Hilarious, like thesedone. So there's some really funny stuff on the show, but it wasnever one of those things that I was like the Holy Shit, this isthe greatest thing I fucking ever fucking love. That show is a sophomore year inhigh school and came out me and like one of the person my Ischool watched it. My Buddy Jeff and I watch it. We're like theonly ones one. And then finally my season two came out, people startwatching because it was like the whole little Wayne EPIs not little it was it? Yeah, low Wayne, not a little wayne, it was a littleJohn, Little John. Yeah, yeah, that's when I got huge. Yeah, but me and I remember being on the MTV movie awards and he'slike I did that one sketch. Now everywhere I go everyone goes what what? And I respected him for leaving it because it wasn't. Yeah, becausethe next time anybody saw him was on inside the actor studio. First interviewhe did, ever, that was with...

James looked in and he told Jameslooked and he is like I hate yeah, he's I remember James looked as him. What were you doing while you were going? He was like smokingweed and playing ddparently, he's like a are playing world warcraft. Really islike a huge fucking world warcraft fan, but which respect? But yeah,I wasn't when you found out why, like it just had all got so, I guess, big real fast, I guess, and he just wasn'tprepared for it and didn't like what it turned into. Well then, Idon't want he have creative writing almost up in anymore and all that shit.You like, you don't blame him for fucking one the yeah, well,like that Shit. That happened? Was it last year, the year before, where Netflix was still showing Chapelle show and he was like I's like,I don't see a dime from that, and there is like what? Yeah, everybody's a how do you not get money becaus your food is just fuckingname on it? Yeah, and that blew everyone's mind. And what Iliked was Netflix was like fuck it will pull it. Yeah, because hehad done, you know, so so all those specials about that point andmade them a shitload of money. So here's the thing that to he never, probably ever talked to Netflix about it, because I don't think you knew itwas on there. I think the way he described that, he didn'tknow it was on there because obviously they great to that deal before any ofthat happened. So like well, that that or he knew. But youknow, at that point, Dave, he hadn't done anything in a while. So I think once he did those specials for Netflix and got some cloudback, I think that was his way of going to Oh hey, bythe way, like glad you guys love the show. I see no moneyfrom that. It's just the most insane thing. Yeah, it's that's tonot get money from a show that's named after you. Yeah, that itwas a fucking hilarious. My favorite bit, ever, is still the buying blackwhite supremacist. So fucking funny. And that's the first, the lastget on the first episode. That's what that's on is. Oh my God, that is one of the funniest fucking things on television UNTILIVISI in history.Yeah, a black guy who's blind and thinks he's a white guy, sohe becomes a member of the claim. We just told him he was whatand he grew up in a school blind, so all the kids thought he waswhat to divorce.
